AN DOVUE  YWhile. Jthe empire Is ready to fall,  what dees the red sultan dream  about? Is the somewhat melancholy  and suggestive title of an interesting  article by M. Stephane Lauzanne iu  the Matin.  What does Abdul Hamid dream  j about all day long in his new palac?  1 of -eyferboy** he asks.  High i*p there on the drak coast  of Asia Minor, in this white castle  which the radiant autumn sunshine  makes whiter still, Abdul Hamid has  been shut up for the past eighteen  days,  A wall of mustery surrounds the dethroned ruler; but there ls no wall  so thick that cannot in one way or  i another be pierced by the curiosity  j of a whole world. And so, in spit*  I of all vigilenco, in sp'.te of guards and  > walls, one heirs something from time  to time of Abdul Hamid-life.  I     It is common    gossip    that    whon  j steps were take.i for his removal from  ��������� Salonica he flatly   refused   to   obey.

Some time ago the engineer who  wis in charge "of the former road,  stated to a well-known, citizen In Caigary that his pay cheques were received from the Great Northern, and  the majority of people were confident  "that the Western Dominion Is part of  the Great Northern.

The indications are that J. J. Hill has not been  asleep the past rew months, and that  he contemplates the purchase of as  many roads as possible in; Alberta and  the west, while at the same time keeping from the world the fact that he is  behind the purchases.  There is every indication that James  J.

The report  was  issued yesterday and it was as bearish as probably  anyone expected lt to he.    The report  was Issued as usual Just as tho American markets cloacd for tho day, and  it gavo tho estimated acreage undor  winter whoat ln tho United States for  the crop of 191,8 at a2,384,000 acres,  and ite estimated condition on Dec.  1st, at 98.2, indicating a possible yield  of ..72.000.000 bus.    wlitm   harvested  noxt hummor.    Lnat year tho acreage  waa estimated at 32,218,000 aoron, the  condition on December lBt, 1011  being 8G.C and probable yield 628,000,000  bushels.    Thin  report of courso was  not known until   the   roarkots   hnd  closed, and whllo It was expected it  would havo a bearish Influence Its effect was partly in sunponno.     Rut in  the lnttor prtrt of tho market ooflnlon  yesterday a much moro bearish foatr  uro   than   the  crop   report   nuido   Its  appearance In tho U.S. vlslblo supply  figures, which showed an inereaso for  tho pa������t wook of the vory largo quantity of r.,877,000 bushels.

The American market 11 openod with a lot. of noil-  such demand.      Another bearish ele  ment is the nossibility of a continuous  good  prospect  for next  year's  crop?,  followed  by   abundant ..yields.       The  present best prospect along this line  js  the  high  condition... of the  U.S.  winter wheat crop, for in Europe the  new winter wheat crops are scarcely  up to the average for the time of the  year, whatever,���������ley may do later on.  Owing to the war in~-eastern Europe  it is not likely that a full acreage of  any of the crops will be* planted over  that  area.    What. a few  weeks  ago  R,-������emed a heayy weight in prospect Is,  the Argentine crop, but latterly weather damage by rain and hail in some  parts and hot -winds in other parts has  been lessening the crop to some extent, and estimates of   the   probable  yield are being reduced, so that to-day  the   Argentine   crop   does -not   seem  nearly so bearish a factor as It did a  month a_o.    The Australian crop also  is understood to he a moderate one,  and perhaps this is the cause why exports of old crop from Australia  in  the last three months have not been  over half what they were in same period last year.    On the bull side when  we turn to the statistical situation we  find that-in face of the immense movement of wheat in the last four to five  months it does not compare foearisuily  with the standing, of visible supplies  a year ago.     The shipments from exporting countries to importing counr  tries from July 1st to date have been  52,000.000 bus. larger than in the same  period last year, and yet visible 6tocks  are scarcely so large as a year ago.  Whether this results from increased  consumption of breadstuffs or    from  purchases which bave%been made by  millers and merchants    which    have  gone into the invisible supplies, and  are still In existence,    we    have    no  means of knowing.       We.find, however that the United    States    visible  supply is 61,277,000 bus.  against 70,-  388,000.bus. last year.      The quantity  on ocean passage last week decreased  4,152,000. bus.  against a decrease of  1,648.000 bus.   last    year,    and    now  stands at 34,496,000 bus.  against 31,-  462,000 bus. a year ago; that is 3,034.-  000 bus. more this year than last, but  only four weeks ago the quantity over  last  year  was  9,208,000  bus.   aiid  in  these,four weeks the    world's    shipments'have been about 13,000,000 bus.  larger  than   they  were  in   the  same  four weeks last year; truly the wheat  is disappearing somewhere? Last week  the European visible supplies decreased 2.684,000 bus.  against an increase  of 700.000 bus.  a year a*?o. and the  total  now   stands  at  85,812,000  bus.  against 88.300.000 bus. last ye-sr.-The  world's   visible   supply   according  to  Bradstreets   Increased   last   week   2.-  255.000  bus.   against  an  increase  of  3,72*7.000 bus.  a year ago    and    now  stands  at  201,7.05.000    bus.     against  202,886,000   bus.   last  year.    For  all  our big crops and big movement this  year therefore risible supplies are less  than last year.

"Unto us a child is born, unto us a  son is given," are unmistakably plain  concerning His birth and manhood,  as are the words concerning the placo  j'of His birth in MIc. v, 2, and the  words of the angel in Luke,it, 10-12,  concerning his actual birth. Why are  not the rest of the words in lesson  verges 6, 7. just, as plain? At'so tho  words in MIc. v. 2, "Out off thee shall  He come forth unto me that is ?to be  ruler ln Israel, whose goings forth,  have been from of old,, from the days  of eternity." Also the words of Gabriel in Luke i, 32, 33. "The Lord God  shall give unto. Him the throne of  His father David, and He shall reign  over the house of Jacob forever, and  of His kingdom there shall be no  end." Why are wetitdA that theae  wordB must be taken spiritually, that  His kingdom Is only ln people's hearts,  that Ho is on the throne of David  now and that the church Ib Israel?  The world of God and the purpose  of God will never be understood by  those who thus pervert the Scriptures. He did truly and literally appear In ages past to Abraham, Isaac,  Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Man-  Oah, Solomon and others. He was  truly and 'literally born of a virgin at  Bethlehem, rode on an ass' colt into  Jerusalem; His hands and. Ills feot  were pierced.  Ho died, was buriod, rose from the  donri,  ascended  to  heaven  and  iu at  the right hand of the Majesty on high.  He will just as literally como again  to rule over a literal Israel from the  throno of David, and Ho wlL  be not  only King of the Jews, but King of  kings   nnd   Lord  of   lords,   speaking  peace to all nations and restoring all  things   of   which   the   prophets   havo  -poken  (Zoch.   Ix,  10;   xiv.   9;   Acta  111, 19-21).      Ho vlll thon be seen in  fullness as   Wonderful.      Counsellor  tho    Mighty    God,    the    Everlasting  Path������.*, tho Prince of Peace.    He Id  all that now, hut lt will bo recognized  by all when He Bhall como In glory.  Now, alnco Ho Ib and Is to bo and  do all that ls written of Him, surely  wo can  with  tho  utmost confldonco  let the government of an our affairs,  personal, homo, business, church and  ull also, He upon His shouldors, for  Ho is able o.xslly to carry ub and all  our affairs   (Dout.   xxxlll,    12;     Col.

C������  CANYON CITY NOTES  Outside of the agricultural lands,  those under water, covered with snow,  or _ti���������. unexplored, it is estimated that  there is in British Columbia an area of  .*  ������**. vmillSnn     am>ao     ������oT������nT>.li������    Of    THfttMJ-ri fling  merchantable, timber. R. E. Benedict,  Chief of operation in the Forest Branch,  stated recently that the amount of wood  annually added to the standing foreBts  throngh the natural process of growth,  is 100 feet per acre. Hence it wonld appear that 6)������  billion feet of timber is  ��������� being added as interest to the wood capital every year.  This is an amount considerably greater than that of all lumber cut   in the  .   Dominion in the year 1910.  Mr. Benedict places the value of this  growth roughly at $100,000,000 per annum, but benefits in excess of this  amount will certainly accrae. At the  present time, when only one-quarter of  the annual growth is being cut, the returns to tha community are over #285-  000,000 a year. The circulation of new  wealth io the Province is the f***"tor  which is playing a more important part  than any other in developing this great  Last vv est.  Bnt there is one essential. Fire must  be kept out of the forests. A dry season and a little carelessness might combine at any time to sweep a great part  of the greatest of the Province's resources ont of existence  The efforts of ail the fire rangers in  the Province would be of no avail if a  really large fire got under way. It is  by care every day in the year that every  . citizen oan help to reduce the fire less.  and baild strong the baais of his own  prosperity,  1       The Chief Fcrester haa expressed to  ,   The Review, the hope that as   many  ��������� people as possible will avail themselves  ,  of the facilitieo which the Forest Branch  ��������� possesses for collecting Information on  forestry questions.   Besides a large and  '   growing library tho branch haB numerous exports with  broad experience in  matters of fire protection, forest nursery  prtctioe, tree diseases, etc.   In addition,  thoro   arc   constantly arriving at tho  Branch, accounts of conditions throughout British Columbia, and doubtless the  experience of men who know tbe north  thoroughly  wouid be appreciated   by  those who live in tho south, and so on.  Whether readers of this paper have  something to tell or something to ask,  their letter* will bo moat gladly received  nnd anything that tho Forest branch  can do to assist in a thorough understanding of the forestry problem will be  enthusiastically undertaken.   Sooner or  later tho provinoo will como to a man-  aflomont of forest areas similar to thoso  in Eastern Canada,  Runsia,  Germany  and Sweden, and it is to be hoped that  the lesson whioh thetio countries have  learnod at tremendous expense will uot  bo duplicated In this land.     With British Columbia rest * the future  of tho  timber trado in Canada, and eo tno ex-  Unl that she realises her position will  am prosperity increase.  "W. B.

Neuralgia is not a    disease���������it    Is  only a symptom.     It   ls   the   surest  sign that your blood Is weak, watery  and impure, and that your nerves are  literally  starving.    Bad  blood is the  one  cause^���������good, rich, rod blood Its  only cure.    There you have the real  reason why Dr. Williams' Pink Pll-  cure   neuralg'a.    They   are   the   oni;'  medicine that contains in correct proportions,   the   very   elements   needed  to make new, rich, red blood.    Thi.>  alone reaches the root ol the trouble,  soothes the jangled nerves and drives  away the nagging, stabbliig pain, an*l  braces up your health in other ways.  Mr.   M.   Brennan,  an  ex-sergeant of  ���������.he   2nd  Cheshire   Renlmnnt,   now   a  resident of Winnipeg,    RCan.,    sjays:  "While serving with mr regiment ln  India, on a hill station, I contracted a  severe cold which brought, on acute  neuralgia,  at times lasting for three  weekc.      I  was constantly  suffering  almost every month  in  the year for  over seven years, tho pain being sometimes bo severe that I wished I was  dead.      On  my return to England  1  seemed   to   got  no   hotter,   though   I  Bpent large sums of monoy for modi-  cal  advlco   nnd  medicine.       Then  I  onmp to Canada, and about a year ago  saw tho advertisement of    Dr.    Williams'. Pink Plllo ln a Winnipeg paper.      Although I had begun to think  my complaint was Incurable I told my  wlfo that I Intended giving tho Pllla  a  fair  trial.      I  was  suffering from  torrlblo  palnB   whon   I   begun  taking  the Pills, but before tho second box  was finished tho pain began to disappear, and undor a further ubo of tho  Pills   lt   disappeared   entirely,   nnd   I  li-vt.'  not hud u  Lwlngo of  11 during  tho past year.     Only those who have  boen afflicted with tho torrlblo pnluu  of neuralgia enn tell what a blosBlng  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills havo boon to  mo, nnd you mny bn miro I shall constantly recommend thorn to other sufferers."

Meredith and the fact that the profits for i  the year were some $242,000 greater  than those of the previous year, must  bs regarded as not only satisfactory  to the shareholders, but as complimentary to the foresight and business  sagacity of the General Manager. It'  is doubtful if the Bank of Montreal  was ever in as good condition to take  care of the growing needs of the Dominion than It is at the present time.  Its increase ln paid up capital and rest  accounts, its gain in deposits, total assets and other matters, makes it peculiarly fitted to take a leading place  in the financial and industrial expansion of the country.  The addresses of the President and  General Manager were both com pre-?  hensive reviews pf the financial, commercial and industrial conditions prei  vailing throughout the _������ominion.  That of the President -which referred  to the Dominion as a whole, was masterly summary of the conditions prevailing at*the present time. The address was optimistic in Its tone, Mr.'���������-.  Angus declaring that conditions'  throughout the Domkiion were unusually sound and that satisfactory progress might be expected as long as  present conditions prevailed. Mr..  Angus touched upon the agricultural  expansion, th** increase In immigration, the growth of manufacturing,  railroad development, the shipping industry and practically speaking every  phase of our commercial and industrial  expansion.  Mr. Meredith in his address, referred more particularly to the growth  of the Bank and the banking business. I  He touched on the forthcoming revision of the Bank Act, and intimated  that there might he a few minor  changes, although in the main the  present Act was giving satisfactory  service. He also dealt in an able  and comprehensive way with the increased cost of living and the charge  that the Banks throughout the Dominion were not paying sufficient attention (to the farming communities. He  denied the charge that the banks encouraged farmers to become depositors, and not borrowers, and stated  that ln so far as his bank was concerned many millions were on loan to  farmers and small traders.  Altogether the addresses of the two  heads of the* Bank like the Annual  Report Itself, were eminently satisfactory to the shareholders present  and should prove equally so to business men throughout tho country' as  well.
