LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling
prairies, tho Red man knew
and appreciated thc curative properties of Little Lake Manitou,
which is located near Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
thc Canadian National Railways.
And thc first white settlers who
came, in advance of the railways,
to settle on their homesteads in
and around Watrous, soon learned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the first settlers reached the
Today thousands of residents of
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an ideal watering place, and
excursions aro run from time to
time over the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot.
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
the swimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
are health-giving in their action.
With a good sandy beach for the
kiddies to play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for their entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the
dwellers in the central region of

A meeting of tho Women's Institute was held at Agassiz, Juno
2Hth, Mrs. Fooks presided, assisted by Mrs. Jenkins, Secretary. Mm.
MacLachlan, Secretary, B.C. Women's institutes, wns present niul nd-
drressod the meting, She Ipoko In
her usual masterly manner on -ieve
nil subjects. All of special educational vp'up und interest to iliti
i- oml. vs. Si'0 ptp'.I'i-i'd the methods necessary to get "the resolutions
passed by' the locul institutes"
through the central convention or
provincial meetings, and afterwards
to get them endorsed by the various
local Institutes of Hie Province, preparatory to sending them to the
Legislature to be embodied in Acts.
Mrs. MacLachlan next explained
provincial organization of Institutes
and Dominion federation of the
same, untl then touched on the various committees working under the
Institutes, such as Child Welfare,
Home Economics, Legislature, etc.
She told just how they should function, and ended with an appeal to
the Agassiz Institute not to cease
its efforts re State Health, reminding the members that nothing was
ever accomplished of any importance 'without incessant activity on
the part of the promoters. They
should not rest on their oars just
because the State Health resolution
had been passed by the Provincial
Convention, though all the Institutes
of B.C. were represented. Nor
should they rest because said resolution was now in the hands of others for its further advancement. It
is due to try and get similarresolu-
tiona passed by. each Women's Society in Agassiz, and then to see
that they were successful in getting
them through their central meetings, A copy should besent to the
secretary of the Medical Association of B.C., i.e., to Dr. Telford,
chairman of the State Health Com-
mmitteo of the Medical Association;
also to the member of the legislature representing them. The members tendered Mrs. MacLachlan a
vote of thanks in their usual way,
nad showed their warm appreciation
The winner of the Left-over Recipe from last meeting was Miss
Edith Agassiz. The recipes selected are to be made Into a booklet
and sold for 10c.
During this meeting a resolution
was put by Mrs. E. Probert, that a
delegation be sent from this Institute to the School Board, asking
that Mr. Hugh Brown be offered the
position of Principal of the Public
School. This was passed unanimous
ly. The hostesses during the afternoon were Mrs. Henley nnd Mrs.

Smaller Legislatures
The demand, voiced generally b.\ the people of Canada, for decreased
expenditure in the administration of public affairs as a necessary and most
effective means of bringing about a reduction In the burden of taxation now
imposed on the country, has resulted in many suggestions beiug advanced
which are hopelessly impracticable, because, In the final analysis. II would be
found that the losses sustained Ihrough Inefficiency would moro than offsei any
savings effected through such false economy.
Other suggestions have been made which are deserving of close and careful sludy ns they are seemingly designed to effect real economies without In
tho slightest degree prejudicial!} affecting any public policy or service. One
such suggestion, which has round favor in many quarters, ls that the membership of the Dominion Parliament and of the several Provincial Legislatures
be reduced. The fact lhat Canada is notoriously over-governed is strongly
urged as a reason for such reductions.
Some people have also advocated the union of the three Maritime Provinces inlo one Province with .one Legislative Assembly, and the same sug-
gestlon has been advanced regarding the three Prairie Provinces. There is
also a strong body of publlr opinion in favor of the abolition of the Senate.
While It would lake a long time to bring aboul lhe union of these .groups
of Provinces, or to secure tho abolition of the Senate, If, indeed, these things
ate desirable or feasible, Ihere can be little doubt but that no dire results
would follow a reduction in the membership of Provincial Legislatures. On
the olher hand, substantial reductions in expenditure could be effected thereby.
According to the last figures available, Ontario has a Legislative Assembly of 111 members; Quebec maiutalns a Legislative Council of 21 members
appointed for life and a Legislative Assembly of Ha members, a total of 109;
Nova Scolia also hns two chambers, u Legislative Council of 21 and an Assembly of IIS; New Brunswick's Assembly consists of 48; Prince Edward Island has 30i Manitoba, 55; British Columbia, -17; Alberta, 5.8; and Saskatchewan, (ill. This makes a grand total of 570 members lo direct lhe machinery of Iegislaiion in the nine Provinces. A reduction of anywhere from fifty
to one hundred could be made with benefit to all concerned, except the members whose seats would be wiped oul.
In llils connection li Is encouraging lo recall that at the recenl session
of the Saskatchewan Legislature ti resolution was presented by a private
member, but a Government suppottc-r, in favor ot a reduction In the membership of ll.e Assembly from Iii! lo 50, such reduction to be made in the next
Redistribution. An nmendmenl was offered by iwo other Government supporters favoring a reduction In membership, but not specifying tlie exact
number of seats to be retained. This amendment received lhe support of
the cabinet ministers and was unanimously adopted by lite Assembly. It is
likely, therefore, thai Saskatchewan will lend the way la the near future towards smaller Legislatures.
Our present unduly large Leglslallve bodies is lhe direct result of lhe
policy of nearly all Governments on the eve of an appeal lo the electorate
bringing down new Redistribution measures providing for a re-arrangement
of constituencies in view of changing population, and In so doing It was always more popular lo provide for Increased population in certain districts by
creating new constituencies than to wipe out a constituency or unite three
into one where the population had decreased or remained stationary. Thus,
step by step, and almost unnoticed, our Legislatures have grown Into unnecessarily large bodies.
Not only It ls high lime thai llils practice Was discontinued, bul there Is
real need for drastic nclion lo correct the mistakes of the past, and bring lhe
membership of the several Legislatures down to a number more nearly approximately actual requirements and needs. To accomplish this reform ls
qutto simple, because tho Provlhces have the power in their own hands to
il, lermiiie ihe si/,-.- of their Legislatures.
The problem is not quite so easy of accomplishment In the ease of the
Dominion Parliament, which consist of 90 Senators and 2:13 members of ihe
House of Commons. Membership in the Senate Is fixed and ls not likely to
be Increased, lim ihe number ot Commoners is bound io steadily Increase
under lhe provision ol Hie UNA. Aei which stipulates that Quebec shall always have or, members and Hint all other Provinces shall be represented according lo their population al the same ratio that 05 hears lo the population
of Quebec,
Tills proviso hits not, in the past, resulted In any very rapid Increase in
membership as is indicated by ihe fact that at Confederation the number of
members was IsI to,- ihe four Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and
New Brunswick, Hven as late as 1905, prior to Hie creation of Hie Provinces
of Alberia and Saskatchewan, Hie membership of the Commons had only
Increased by 33, lo 211. since then, however, the increase lias been more
rapid, ni'l lhe next House will consist of over 210 members. In other words,
the Increase In Hie last twenty years has been equal to the preceding forty
The lime musl come, therefore, when a different basis of membership
must be fixed, unless the Commons Is to become a terribly expensive and altogether unwlehllj body. There ls good reason tor urging Hint consideration
be given llils Inevitable problem now, rather than leave it to future years
when ii win unquestionably he more difficult to arrive at a solution satisfactory lo all Hie Provinces.

The Sad Condition of a Brandon Lady

for a while l could see that I was

Aid For British Airmen
Royal Canadian Air Force Completes
Work of Preparation      *
While developments are pending regarding lhe continuance ot the British
round-the-world flight, the Royal Can-
adian Air Force has completed Its
work of preparation for the cross-Canada section of the trip. The route of
flight has been fixed and supply depots
have been arranged from the Aleutian
Islands to St. John's, Newfoundland.
The air force headquarters have received no Information as lo the plans
of lhe airmen.
The present plans call for the following stops In Japan: Kagoshima,
Kushtmoto, Tokio, Mlnatogaura, Yet-
orup Islands, and Paramushlr. Prt-
rbpavlovsk ls lhe furthest west of the
Canadian supply depots. From
there the line of flight continues to
Nlkolskl, Chicagoc Harbor, Nazan

and Yakutat, In Alaska. Thence the
route follows the Yellowhead Pass to
Kdmontou, then to Regina, Victoria
Beach, on Lake Winnipeg, and across
lhe Kenora lake district to Fort William.
The line crosses the upper part of
Lake Superior, through Canadian territory to Sault Ste. Marie, and across
Georgian Bay to Lake Nlpisslng, then
down the Ottawa River to Ottawa.
From the capital the route goes directly to Fredericlon and St. John, N.B.,
Amherst and Sydney. N.S., and then to
St. John's, Newfoundland.

Conference on Agricultural statistics,

the existing plans were endorsed for
conllntianco during lhe presenl year
and until suoli lime as if may prove
possible io evolve better,
Ai the conference referred lo, certain Improvements were effected In
the cardboard schedule Issued for farmers to fill up, anil on this card the
Dominion and Provincial Governments
make an earnest appeal In all farmers
In give Hie Information required, urging lhe following seven specific reasons why they should do so: (I) The
statistics are collected and published
primarily in ihe farmer's own interest;
(2) They are his protection against
misleading reports by speculators interested In controlling or manipulating
prices; ('.!) Tiny provide information
which determines prices, and so ensure fair play all round; (4) They enable transportation companies lo judge
of the volue of Ihe crop and to
make adequate and timely arrangements for its movement; (3) Bankers
require accurate informal ion for the
extension of credit facilities; (6) Manufacturers, wholesale rnil retail merchants and oihets require knowledge
of crop conditions for lhe establishment ol profitable local enterprises
which react favorably upon the farming Industry; (7) No one can prevent the issue of crop estimates; bul
farmers can help to ensure the accuracy of lhe government estimates by
returning the schedule required. The
larger the number of returns, the
greater will be the value of lhe estimates based thereon. It is further
pointed oul thai the completed schedules will be treated as absolutely confidential, and no Individual returns
will be divulged. Tlie facts supplied
will not be used in any way for taxation purposes o; lor the Imposition of
any other liability.
In most branches of national effort,
the necessity for accurate statistics is
being more and more realized. When
it is considered that Canada is now
one of tlie world's leading wheat-
growing and exporting countries, and
that the prices received by wheat
growers are determined by world conditions of supply and demand, farmers
too should realize that upon the timely publication of accurate information
depends largely the welfare of the
great agricultural Industry as a whole
and consequently that of each Individual concerned in it.
If any farmer in this district should
nol receive the cardboard schedule
through the rural school or otherwise
by the middle of June, Immediate application for It should be made either
to the Public School teacher of the
School District ill  which he resides,
the Provincial Department of Agriculture al lhe capital of his province, or
the Dominion Statistician at Ottawa.
World's Good Wheat
Crop Hurt Canada
Record   Harvest   In   1923   But   Prices
Were Disappointing to Farmers
"Although In 11123 the Dominion
reaped lhe mosl abundant harvest on
record, the returns to the Canndlnn
farmer were disappointing," said 13.
II. Godfrey, head of lhe agricultural
statistics division of the Bureau ol
Statistics, Ottawa, in a paper read on
j his behalf before lhe Farmers' Club at
, London.
The paper was a study of costs ol
. production    on   Canadian  farm and
conveyance   of   produce t" English
"But ihis disappointment," Mr.
Godfrey cdhtlnued, "was due large!)
to the general excellence of Ihe wheal
crop throughout the world which had
the effect of reducing the price. This i
is ii rare occurrence and we may look
for a rise in the price when world conilllions of wheat revert lo the normal."
Dealing wllh rresh outlets for Canadian grain, Mr. Godfrey pointed out
lhat the Panama Canal ls likely to
have an important Influence in shortening the land haul from a large part
of Western Canada. He also Indicated that Hie Hudson Bay route has received tlie approval of successive governments.
The United States, he added, has
apparently reached the limit of wheat
production, while in Canada, where
vast areas of fertile lands still await
the plough, agricultural product len
must cominue annually to increase.

Weather observers as well as uhl
selilers lu the west entertain lhe belief that the climate of Ihis country
Is changing, A weather authority,
formerly of the United Stales, maintains positively that this rhange has
been slowly but surely taking place
for the past thirty years.
The bluer winters of several decades ago are not experienced by the
present-day settler. The blitzards
that raged continually 111 parls of the
prairie provinces are now conipara

time horllculturalists will be able to
supply the people ol Western Canada
wllh every kind of fiult demanded,

Discussing lhe causes of this weather transition, weather prophets advance several logical theories. Some
claim lhat the weather merely moves
in cycles—first warm, then hoi. They
inspect records of years back and by
Hiking the weather averages over periods of ten years each, that Ihe average temperature of these cycles has
never varied to any grent extent since
the first observations were made.
Olhers are.supporting the viewpoint
of Ihose who believe that a change
is Inking place.
Some attribute the climatic transition to Irrigation projects of lhe west.
There are now about 39 million acres
under irrigation and through this
means a tremendous amount of mols-
lure ls brought Into what was formerly a dry country. Evaporation and
subsequent precipitation has also been
largely Instrumental In changing an
arid plain into a rertile grain-producing country.
The theory ls also often advanced
that the climate has been affected by
the destruction of forests. These
forests, It ls claimed, formerly conserved moisture and kept the snow
from melting too quickly, so lhat the
action of the sun on the earth was
In Ontario, where the forests formerly sheltered the country, there are

sa Hammond Victorious
The Hammond ball squad journeyed to Queen's Park, Tuesday
evening and hud a light work-out ut
the expense nf Jack Morgan's pirate
crew. Herb essayed to burn 'cm
over for the lliirbageinen, and Mun-
ruc's hirelings touched up his
slants for 10 bingles and 10 runs.
The tilt started olf in big league
style when Isaacson fanned, Lewis
breezed, and Goodall whiffed. Kroner's tallied through Elmer when
Olsen fumbled a tricky grounder,
and held the lead until the fourth,
■when u (lock of base hits chased
three counters over thc platter. In
the sixth another onslaught, with a
few bright miss-plays, netted five
more. Fraser threatened at this
point when Olsen wns nicked for
three hits, and one run came in, but
he relieved by striking out a couple,
which provd quite effective. Bcezer
Bill Clarke found his batting eye
and logged off three healthy swipes.
Dean Freshlield pnlled the same
bright trick and Olsen had a nice
large evening, whiffing eleven and
collecting a free pass and three
smacks in four trips up. Thure
Stormo turned in a creditable performance as umpire.

Granville Island,
Eminent Railway Builders
A unique record of Canadian railway pioneer engineers isembodied
in a photograph taken in Vancouver
recently of three prominent members
ol the profession whose record for continued service in the survey and construction of railways is possibly
without parallel. They are—reading
from left to right, H. J. Cambie,
M.E.I.C, eighty-seven years of age;
T. H. White, M.E.I.C, seventy-six
years of age; and J. H. Kennedy,
M.E.I.C, seventy-two years of age.
They are all resident in Vancouver.
2aoh has been identified with one
of the threo great transcontinental
railroads now operating in British
Columbia, as chief engineer on the
location and construction of the
original main lines within the Province, pioneered through the wilderness of mountains, canyons, forests
and plains by feats of engineering
skill and perseverance not surpassed
and scarcely equalled in any other
n.irt of the world. Each one is enjoying excellent health, and occupies
lho very highest place in the respect
and esteem of the members of the
engineering profession together with
the general public. Another very
interesting coincidence lies in the
fact that each one possesses the apparently magic name "Henry".
Henry John Cambie, M.E.I.C,
was born on October 25th, 1S36, in
County Tipperary, Ireland. He had
charge of the location of the present
main line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway from the Coast to Griffin
Lake, and was chief engineer of the
world-famous construction through
the Fraser Canyon from Yale to
Lytton, and also the construction of
the section from Savona Ferry to
Shuswap Lake.
Mr. Cambie has been continuously
associated with the Canadian Pacific
Railway and its predecessor, the
Government Railway, for sixty-eight
years. His name is perpetuated by
the station on the Canadian Pacific,
Cambie,  on  the  giant loop below
Glacier. Mr. Cambie explored, surveyed and planned the whole course
of the Canadian Pacific through a
large section of the province of British Columbia, and under his direct
supervision the part that runs
through the canyons of the Fraser
was built. At the age of eiglrty-
seven he is still hale and hearty,
enjoying the love and esteem of his
fellow men.
Thomas Henry White, M.E.I.C,
was born on January 27th, 1848, at
St. Thomas, Ontario. He was chief
engineer of the location and construction of the present main line from thc
Yellowhead Pass, down the North
Thompson and Fraser Canyons to
New Westminster. It is interesting
to note that he was Mr. Cambie'?
right-hand assistant during the work
in the Fraser Canyon.
Mr. White has always been popular
with his fellow engineers, being noted
for abundant good nature, keen sense
of humour, and an absolute fairness
in all his associations.
James Henry Kennedy, M.E.I.C,
was born on March 3rd, 1848, in
Carleton County, Ontario. He had
charge of the location of the main
line in British Columbia, under the
Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern Railway charter, from Laurier to the
Coast. As chief engineer, he built the
first section in the Province, from
Laurier to Grand Forks, through the
Kettle Valley country and afterwards
constructed the longer section from
Chopaka to Brookmere, through the
difficult Similkameen and Tulameen
The complete record of the life-
work of each of these pioneer railroaders is full of Interesting reminiscence, and the monuments of their
handiwork arc to be seen in practically
every province of the Dominion.
Although British Columbians take
great pride in the achievements of
those men, they nevertheless feel that
they belong to Canada, from coast to

"Often I think il wrong of me to
think and feel this way and imagine
things as I do, but I cannot help it. 1
think, sometimes, that it Is wrong of
me, but. at other times. I think it
does me good to let my imagination
thus wander away with my thoughts.
II relieves the aching loneliness. Oh,
Mr, MacRae, it may seem sentimental
and silly ol' me U talk in this way, to
say these things to you, but somehow
I cannot help it. I feel as though I
must yield to the urge antl the Impulse to speak about it. Do \vou
think it is wrong of me, Mr. MacRae?
Hut, really, it is so intensely lonely
not to have anyone to talk to when
you Feel depressed."
Inwardly feeling flattered that she
should confide in him, he said; "On
the contrary, Miss Fraser, you are
perfectly right In talking il over with
someone. One should let one's Imagination wander away, and carry
one's thoughts from brooding over

Wood-bridge, Ont.—" I took Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for female troubles. 1 would have headaches,
backaches, pains between my shoulders and under my shoulder-blades and
dragging down feelings on each side.
I was sometimes unable to do my
work and felt very badly. My mother-
in-law told me about the Vegetable
Compound and I got some right away.
It has done me more good than any
other medicine 1 ever took and 1 recommend it to my neighbors. You are
quite welcome to use this letter as a
testimonial if you think it will help Some
poor sufferer."—Mrs, Edgar Simmons,
K. R. 2, Woodbridge, Ont.
Tn nearly every neighborhood in every
town and city in this country there are
women who nave been helped by Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound in
the treatment of ailments peculiar to
their sex, and they take pleasure in
passing the good word along to other
women. Therefore, if you are troubled
in this way,whynot give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a fair trial.
This famous remedy, the medicinal
ingredients of which are derived from
roots and herbs, has for fortv yeara

"Our moods of depression are very
often dispelled by allowing our imaginations thus to run away with our
thoughts. Sometimes the visions of
the imagination may seem light and
frivolous and childish, but the happiest
moments of life aro often the product
of frivolous Imagining, a truth that is
very well exemplified in childhood
days. I think that our fancies should
be Indulged and encouraged. They
relieve the tedium of the monotonous
hours of life. They are not wrong;
ihey are nature's antidote to gloomy
thoughts. What you have said just
now both interested and pleased me.
It. conies as a tonic to my own
thoughts and mood at the present
Mary, feeling relieved and encouraged by the thoughts to which Ronald
had just given expression, and acting
on me impulse of the encouragement
given, said: "It is, indeed, nice to
know dial the feelings that sometimes
take possession of me, and which are
so depressing, and the thoughts that
accompany them are not peculiar to
myself, nor, as one might imagine, due
to an odd streak in my own make-up.
I suppose that most: people feel the
same way at odd times. But, during
the last few days I felt particularly
downcast, and wondered if there was
something about me thnt was displeasing to people and .caused them
annoyance. Since the night of the
dance 1 fell that you, Mr. MacRae,
were annoyed at me, and 1 have been
wondering what could have been the
cause of it. When you came back lo
the dance at daylight, after your long
absence, you looked worried and
downcast. I wondered whether I
were to blame, whether 1 had done anything to annoy you. You are going away
morrow, and it lias worried me a great
deal to think that you might leave
feeling annoyed nt me after all you
have done for us—and—for me. I
hope, Mr. MacRae, I have not given
you cause for offence. If I have It
was unknown to me and quite unintentional."

future. I am sure M would not in-
teresi you. As it is only a personal
matter with me, I would raiher it remain a secret."
"Much as I would wish to know,'I
still do not understand, Mr. MacRae."
After a pause she added: "Don't you
think we had belter go home now?"

"Miss Fraser, I hope you will forgive me if I appear to you to have been
crude In my refusal to reply to your
questions. I ditl not mean to be so.
A while ag<* we were talking about being Oppressed by depressing feelings
of loneliness. As those feelings are
often caused b\ greal disappointments,
an understanding of toy feelings may
help to explain all, and. perhaps, furnish an answer lo your questions.
"Tho secret of the whole mailer is,
Mary, lhat I love you wiih all lhe Intensity thai It is possible for the soul
of man to love a woman. From lhe
time I first met you on the trail, 1 loved you. From ihat time on my tic-
lions were controlled by my love for
you. My depressing moods of the
past few days have been caused by
disappointed love. The night of the
dance I learned for the flrsl time of
your engagement to Sn^t. Melvin, aud
lhat you were lo be married to him
soon. 1 felt so disappointed and depressed al. the news ihat I took a long
walk along the lake shore lo think
matters out, and to try and reconcile
myself to my disappointment and also
decide on the better course to follow.
"Vour father had made a proposition to me to stay with him, lake up
a homestead, and go iu with him in
the ranching business. I have decided that 11 would not be right lor me lo
stay around here in view of my lovo
ol you, and In view ol the facl that
you are going to marry another man.
I thought that it would nol be fair as
it mlghl be distressing to you, should
you at any time learn of my love of
you. I accordingly decided to bury
the secret of my love and leave you
happy in lhe choice you have made.
Sergt. Melvin is a splendid man and
worthy of the love and hand of any
woman. Bitter as my disappointment are, I cannot hut wish you all
the joys of a happy life. I love you
with all the intensily of which my
soul is capable of loving. As I do
love you, I do not wish to stand in the
way of your future happiness. I
Ihink that it is better for us both that
I should leave, but in the depths of my
heart the secret of my love of you
shall ever remain fresh and unalloyed. All I ask is the assurance that
in future years I shall have your good
wishes and esteem.
"I did net wish to distress you by
telling you all this. While iq,a certain sense it Is a pleasure to me to
have you know the secret of my love,
yet I do hope that that knowledge will
not cause you future unhapplness. As
I love you, I glial, think of you always.
My recollections of the all but too
brief time of our acquainlance shall be
the happiest memories of my life. Forgive me, Mary, if in any way, I have
caused you distress. But now that I
have confessed my love, I have begun
already to feel the relief of which you
spoke a while ago."
When Ronald had made this, his
first confession of love, he stood with
head uncovered In nn attitude of true
devotion. The background of the
setting sun-tinged his features all
with gold. With n wild surge Mary
had never experienced before, she felt
that all at once her golden dreams
had come true, that here stood her
Fairy Prince of whom she had dreamed, and with whom she had in dreams
conversed. At first she listened with
downcast looks and averted eyes to
the oul pourings of Ronald's heart as
he told her the story of his love and
disappointment. Then with deep feelings of ineffable joy, she marked the
true ring of the note of sincerity in
Ills voice as every word sank deep
into her heart.
When he had ceased speaking, and
she beheld him now as she had never done before, she slowly_j),rose, and,
with the lovellght shining through
tear-dimmed eyes, she approached
and gave her answer In a clear voice:
"Oil, Ronald; It Is not true that I
am engaged to Sergt. Melvin; it ls
not true that I ever thought of marrying him. I could not marry a man
whom I do not love; 1 do not.Iove him,
therefore, 1 could never marry him.
You say that you love me, Ronald,
then do no' go away; do not leave me.

Water Supply In Deserts
Animal Life Found Under Sahara Has

Australia's success in finding huge

Successful Women Trappers
U.S. Government Employs Four tt
Destroy Wild Animals
Four officially appointed womel
trappers—women whose duty it Is tt
seek out. and destroy mountain lions
wolves, coyotes and other crenturet
that prey upon stock, nre in the emploj
of thc United States Government.
It wns In 1915 thnt the government
undertook a campaign to destroy these
noxious animals, and experienced
trappers were engaged for the work.
Then war enme, nnd the men were
called to the colors. Alas, many never returned. This led the authorities
to break their rule of only employing
men for this perilous calling, and since
191S four women—wives and daughters of former government trappers—
have entered Uncle Sam's service as
hunters and destroyers of wild creatures that give the stockmen and
ranchers so much trouble.
The more famous and daring of
these fair hunters Is Mrs. Anna Newman, and her daughter, Miss Anna
Schneider, whose hunting headquarters nre nt the little settlement of
Benton on the Nevada side of tho
Sierra Nevada range of mountains.
Here they trap their nnlmnls—for they
nre tnken In steel traps—over wild
nnd mountainous country far from the
haunts of man.
Since they started, In 1918, they
have accounted for 400 coyotes, mountain lions, lynxes and bob-cats, the
principal pests in their large district.

Great    Importance    of    the    Tourist
Traffic of the Dominion Is
Tourists spcnl $136,000,000 In Canada last year, and of Ihis over S36.000,-
000 was spent in the province of British Columbia, according lo an estimate

which keeps dote tab on the movement of tourist tralllc in Canada.
The tralllc Includes the railways,
but uot less than 1.602,000 nulomo-

bent during 1923.
The Importance of this tourist I raffle to the Dominion ls seen In the fact
that the amount spent by these travellers amounts to about 85 per cent, of

Working On Beam
System Of Wireless
Marconi Will Shortly Conduct Experiments In Long Distance Radio-
The beam system was not used in the
experiment recently conducted from
Cornwall, in Which .Signer Marconi
was enabled lo speak by radio with
Australia. Mr. Marconi said the results of beam transmission which he
Intended to make the material for
trans-Atlantic experiments iu the future, undoubtedly would satisfactorily
prove its availability for high speed
telephony for which he said his com
pany was prepared to build large stations in various parts ot the world
The Inventor ls certain the beam
can be encompassed within an area
as narrow as five degrees and possibly less, and that by lis use he will be
able to obtain with power of only one-
tenth of a kilowatt as efficient transmission with twenty kilowatts, which
was the power used in the speech to
Australia. He added that radio telephonic communication between Europe and America ls "coming soon."

British Chemist's New Discovery
Alcohol Suitable For Automobile Fuel
Can Be Made From Hops
A new microbe has been discovered
whereby 10,000 tons ot waste hops can
be made to yield annually half a million gallons of alcohol suitable for motor spirit. It ls a British discovery,
and another proof of the value of
chemical research.
Until two chemists made this discovery, brewers paid large sums every
year for the carting away of (heir
"waste" hops. Now not only can mo-
tu.r spirit be extracted from this so-
called waste, but a further result Is
the manufacture of acetic acid, essential in many Industries.
This useful microbe develops so
much heat by Its evolution that It
kills all antagonistic germs and great-
'ly stimulates the process of fermentation. Apart from motor spirit, 15,000
cubic feet of gas, suitable for internal
combustion engines, is also rendered
available by the process, and the
whole discovery has aroused keen Interest In the chemical aud commercial world.—Tlt-BHs.

Lnst Thursday, Mrr Nelson S,
Lougheed, President of thc Abern-
ethy-Loughed Logging Co., by showing Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Field
his vast logging plant, afforded him
the occasion to remark :
"Thc most interesting day I have
had on tho trip."
Little wonder at such an opinion,
as Mi'. Lougheed explained tho wonderful processes of taking down the
mighty forest monsters and convcv-
ing them to the river, some dozen
miles away. President Lougheed
was assisted in the entertaining by
Mr. McCormick, Vice-President of
the Co. and the Misses Margaret
and   Ethel   Lougheed.
This wns the grandest forest operation Sir Frederick had ever seen,
and hence his wonderment nnd admiration. Cedai-s 2000 years old
were seen in their prestine glory,
and all the processes that happen
them at tlie hands of gangs of men
and the latest in logging engines
and machinery. The Vice-Admiral
and the others of his party were the
guests—to the camp of—Mr. Geo.
Kidil, Mgr. B.C.E. By. The loggers'
dinner formed a part of the treat.
The distinguished guests paid
high compliments to Haney's great
Captain of Industry.

"Wc arcall More or Lest Dependent

"I remember way buck in tbe
'Seventies' what a serious situation
was created, amounting almost, to a
panic, when the news went round
that tlie sawmill was tfohitf to close
down. We wero all more or less dependent on it." Thus an old-timer recently speakinp of the rally days of
the historic Eastings Mil!, around
which p-rew up the present city of
Tho most effective way to realize
what the lumber industry means to
British Columbia is to visualize for
a moment what would really happen
if hte 3,000 concerns exclusively engaged in handling forest products
were compelod by any industrial upheaval to close (lown.
Here area few things that would
happen :
An  investment  of  $20,000,000
would be imperilled.
An annual purchasing power of
$100,00,00 would be destroyed.
Forty thousand  workers would
bo without jobs.
The Province would losea third
of its revenue.
The  railroads  would  lose  half
of their freight traffic.
Half the  number of big ships
would comeot our harbours.
The situation is in fact much the
same as it was in the 'Seventies,"
the forest industries are the life of
the Province. .."We are all more or
less dependent on them." And every

THE National Parks of Canada
are a haven for wild life;
where guns and hunting dogs
are forbidden and where the animals have come to look upon man
as their friend rather than as their
destroyer. As a result wild animals are increasing in the national
Sarks of Canada and the graceful
eer, the lordly bison and the always interesting bear live at peace
in their natural habitat without
At Jasper National Park in Alberta, which is 4,400 square miles
in extent and the largest of Canada's
national parks, bears, deer, moose,
mountain sheep and goats abound,
and the visitor finds also great
numbers of smaller animals such as
beaver, squirrel and others which
are becoming quite tame since they
realize that they are protected.
At Wainwright, on the main line
of the Canadian National Railways,
east of Edmonton, there exists one
of the finest demonstrations of the
feasibility of game conservation,
for there, in the buffalo park are
some 8,000 animals, the growth
from a herd of 716 which was purchased some sixteen years ago by
the Canadian Government and al
lowed to multiply in peace. So
great has been the development of
the herd that this fall 2,000 of the
surplus animals had to be slaughtered and in the spring another
2,000 young buffalo are to be
moved into the northern hinterland
nnd allowed to roam at will there
under conditions where they also
will be safe from.ruthless hunters.
In addition to buffalo, the government has at Wainwright large
numbers of elk and yak, which are
fast becoming unknown animals
except to the adventurous hunter
who was prepared to go miles beyond the limits of civilization, and
these animals also are multiplying
in the conditions under which they
are being kept.
Visitors to Jasper Park at thc
present time And cinnamon, brown
and black bears very numerous; if
they go far enough afield they may-
reach the haunts of the grizzly,
still within the park limits. Deer
may be found browsing within a
stone's throw of Jasper Park
Lodge, the bungalow camp hotel
operated by the Canadian National
Railways and cariboo are reported
to be becoming more plentiful year
by year. The "blghorli" mountain sheep grazes peaccfuly along
the lower slopes of tho great
mountains which rise on every side,
while the more timorous mountain
goat may be seen on the higher
slopes, making his way over precarious footing and seeming to
challenge the camera enthusiast to
climb up and include his picture in
the collection.
By means of the sanctuaries
which have been given to various
animals, the younger Canadians
growing up today can now r.nd in
the future see for themselves,
specimens of various big game animals which a few years ago were
threatened with destruction. And
since Canada was almost the last
native haunt of many of these, such
as the buffalo, the educational
value alone of the sanctuaries is
great. The experiments already
made have shown that such animals as the buffalo can readily ba
propagated in captivity and in their
case also, the revenue derived by
the government from the sale of
buffalo meats, hides and heads
from the animals which it has become necessary to kill, will, it is
estimated, go a long way towards
paying for the cost of the experiment and the upkeep of the National Parks.
THE first storage battery electrically driven car used by
railways in Western Qanada
has been placed in service between
Winnipeg and Transcona by the
Canadian National Railways,
whoso shops at Transcona employ
some 2,400 men, many of whom reside in Winnipeg, travelling back
and forth morning and evening.
Others  reside   in Transcona with
their families, but do their shopping and other business in Winnipeg. The inauguration of tho new
electric car service gives a regular
schedule of runs daily which can
be operated by the railway company much more economically than
under the former system of operating extra passenger trains several times dally. The new car was
converted from a gasoline-electric
car at the St. Catherines shops of
the Canadian National. It is of
solid steel construction throughout with four-wheeled ball bearing:
trucks. The length is 6!) feet over
all and accommodation is provided
for 100 passengers. One end of
the car is reserved as a smoking;
compartment. The car Is capable?
of maintaining a speed of 40 miles
per hour on level track and makes
the one-way trip between Winnipeg and Transcona In 16 minute*
