First Qilarlor.  Lesson VIII; February
II), l'Jll: 1 Kings ivll;41| iia;
St   -
One ol the most eigniHcant acts of
Elijah's life is. related in a linglu
verse, "He ran before Ahab to the entrance ol Jeireel." He bad rebuked
the king, but now lie throws the lull
weight of his personal and official
character on his side by anting as bis
herald. The queen, Irom her lattice,
saw the uhai'iut • coming, aud Elijah
running belore. Though she knew
what that generous and patriotic deed
signified, it failed to solten her heart.
Jezebel gave Elijah bis cboiee of elile
or death. It dawned upon tbs prophet's miiul that a i umi can not be
reformed in a day. The scene on Oar
mel had lia'i'ii grand, but it was an incident merely in tbe reformation. The
trend of three generations of idolatry
could nnt be rhangsd simply liy the
people vocilerating, "Tho Lord, He is
Ood I" Savonarola had to learn the
same lesson twenty-five centuries later
in I'lm ''ii'i'. It was human lor Elijah
to bo a.h.i. Lul by Ihe disc6very ol the
in. aiiiiiila.il. character ol his reformation. The cowardly thing lor him lo
have iinin., hiiwever, would havo been
to lm'..' remained and died. He did
the courageous thing when ho put himself beyond tho rearh ol the murderous
i|iiivii. ' ' ' At length, Elijah stood
where Hoses had stood sis centuries
before, and like him, witnessed in tlie
mount of Ood tho majesty of Jehovah.
Nature, in her/ various features, forces
aad moods, is both nurse and medicine for the mind distressed. In thu
tumult of the storm Elijah rogeinod
his equilibrium. Hut these phenomena
were not a sedative merely. They
were an allegory also. Wind, earthquake and lire are, alter all, not the
beet symbols oi Ood. It has lieen well
said : "Tlie esqiiisite rendering ol the
margin reminds us that no voica'was
yel heard. Ihe servant knew, by long
communion, when his I'inl passed by.
lie waited, and ho learned that force
■ "• li as seemed triumphant in apostate Israel was doomed to laii, for it
was nol of Ood. And in the whis|>er,
whose vivid contrast typified tho seeming impotence of right in the strife
wilh might, he knew tbst his iimi
was near." Ily this allegory Elijah
was luugbt lhat his further work Was
to Ik gradual. Alter thai liary muni-
la I,'i i ia,ia uin, I, mude < in mil tliu rival
ol   Sinai,   there   was to be a   silent,
ontinuous, and powerful o|»ralioo,
tbe final and aggregate n -ulti- ol
whiih would Ir grrulcr and mors enduring lliun lliose nl any moral cataclysm.
Wo view Elijah from a new angle.
Sight is not so pleasing or eshilaral-
iug, Imt may he profitable. It muy
teach us how to dejxirl ourselves in
deleat. how lo make driest serviceable in Ihe evolution of character.   '

His despondency proves the genuineness of his Immunity He was, as

In (arming and agriculture the increase Inr tbo year was very large, nti
though it is to be regretM that tbe
imports 0! lorm products' are still in
once" ol th» total nmount wised 'or
10 consumption. The totul value
ol farm produce raised in the provinco
for 1010 was «,M0,<WI while that ol
tho pivii'iii fiiaaul year will totnl
114,390,030, an inorsase of practically
seventy-Uvu pur cent. Wliile these results indicate thp rapid strides that
are being made and the effectiveness
ad the means that are being adopted,
it is nevertheless, evident that the sit-*
nation is one in which material
improvement is ardently tn be
desired. Tbo total imports of farm
produce for the year wore 114,062,904,
that is, the province did not supply
one-half ol the produce ol this nature
which wai consumed during ihe year.
Tho situation ia nnt without via encouraging features however, inasmuch
11 the iiei a'u.'c in home products waa
llfty pur i-eiil. greater than tho in
erenso in the imports in tho
aiinie clttBB witb the result
thut thu total from local sources
well nigh overhauled the total Irom
outside the prqvince. The old idea
that the nruhle areas pl the province
wero too restricted to entertain the
hopi' that sufficient home produce
a miiil be raised to supply the lucal
market is now altogether exploded
and it is recognized that ita agricultural posaihilitiea nre eaaily aulhciont
to render tho province self contained
in lliis respect if they ore developed in
an udcipiute manner.
in view ol these fuele it is ul interest to note that the government is
putting forth special effort to promote
the agricultural interests of the province. The Department of Agriculture
hus been re-organized mul its efficiency
greatly increased. Tho number ol farmers' institutes hus been greatly increased und are doing effective work
The same muy bc suid of the Stock'
breeders and of the Poultry Members'
Aasuciations, and the II. C, Fruit
Orowere' Association, ol which last
iiuiued the provincial Horticulturist is
secretary. All ol these associations
are now under the direct supervision
of the agricultural department. Two
important developments took place
during Ihe year relative to the fruit
growing industry in tlie establishment
of government demonstration orchards
and the institution ol government
packing schools.
in addition to the promotion ol organisation and education amongst tlic
farming' population of the proviuce
the government curries on au extensive advertising campaign through tbc
generul distribution of pamphlets u
in.mi .1.nl of effective work in tbii
particular und lor tho promotion   of
inim in..11 in general ia being  done
through Ihe immigrution office in London,   I Ha'l.n.'l.
Theae expedients, in conjunction with
a liberal land policy, extensive surveying operations, the progressive opening up of the country hy means ol the
construction of ruilwuys und of 1 mid ■

ihon ilmi lhe government appreciates

of home grown produce is increasing
in a'i'.ii. 1 ratio that Ihe volume iil

it is desirable to establish in the in
lereatf of the province is that the vol

to un extent sufficient to supply tbe
ever us n.i una demand and also to
hold iu check or to decrease th* pro
portionute volume ol importation! of

Bolore 1030 tba (OUr provinces ql
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Albortn and
Ilrjtisb Columbia will hpve a population oi at leaii IQuMOOfl. Having
persqnolly visited tbo most important
districts of these provinces and carefully studied the changed and developments that pn in progress I make
this |na'llietinii boldly. It is not a vagary ol on optimjst, but is based upon astonishing (acts that confront the
investigator wherever ho turns. It'is
impossible to consider tbo everyday
occurrences in this region without
reaching the conviction, logically and
practically, that this prediction is entirely within tho range of attainment,
What are some ol the (acts that justify this prophecy i Up to the present time ono railroad, the Canadian
Pacific, between tin- Great Lakes and
the Pacific coast, haa been the sole
dopondonce of Western Csnada in
bringing in and locating tha settlers,
moving tbe eVops and supplying tbe
business needs. How well that railroad has performed its service as a
courier (of progress is shown by its
matchless record and thc almost un
purullcd growth that has followed its
cuiisse; in iiiiii Manitoba had a population ol 366,311 and in 1309, 466,-
268—at thc sumo ratio and without
any additional facilities it would
have more than 1,600,000 in 1920—
Winnipeg will haw nearly half tbat
'number; in 1301 Saskatchewan had a
population ol 'lDD.DWl and Jii llnlll,
341,631—the same1 measllft uf growth
without any added stimulus would
givo it mare than 1,000,000 in 1330;
in llllll Alberta had ,, population ol
160,000, uud in 1309, 90(1,000—the same
multiplication would mako nearly
u million ip 1<J3J>; in 19U9 British Columbia had a population ol 386,000-
without a single fresh advantage
this would exceed 1,000,000 In fore
1930. Vancouver will have hall '.but
number. But, mind you, the means
and inibi, ii..'i ul growth Ibut have
produced these figures were primitive
and abortive compared to tnose at
work today and that wil) iocrcuKO lhe
growth a hundrcdlold in the next
The present population has followed
thc operations of one transcontinental
ruilroud : it curried the formers out tu
the plains and into Ihe valleys and
showed them the way to independence and piai'-pi'iiiy ; it staked out the
ii'v.ie ii. that are now tlie bristling
cities ; it showed the settlers how to
farm successfully on llie dry prairies,
it gave them irrigation in some districts and all with such effect that in
1901 thc average value ol larm crops
iu Western Canuda was $10.33 per
acre us uguinsl 19.41 in thc United
ln less than five years Irom now
there will be two additional railroads
spanning thc contiueul across Canada
to la.aiaa the burdens and the responsibilities to development with the
Canadian Pacilie. The completion ol
Uic Grand Trunk Pacific will be followed in the first year by the distribution of a milliou settlers along the
line from Winnipeg to Prince Rupert
and two years of operation will sec
three millions moro located and prospering on its main lino and branches.
Proportionately similar results will
