Education in "Western- CanacI
Steamers for Northern
" Among the administrative duties which come solely within the jurisdiction of Provincial Legislatures and Governments possibly none are more
important and vital .to'the true welfare and strength of the,.*Country than
thosc which have to do with the schools and educational policy. While
the Dominion Parliament has the right, in certain contingencies, to override Provincial school legislation affecting* minorities, it has nothing whatever to do with genera! educational policy and administration. '. The
strength or weakness, the success or failure, of the schools of Canada is,
therefore, a direct responsibility of thc Provinces.
From thcir inception, the Western Provinces of Canada have placed
education, and the creation and development of a strong elementary system
of schools, first and foremost in their legislative and administrative programmes: Thc people havc demanded this, and the Governments have
responded to that demand; Governments have in* fact led the -way in the
introduction of reforms and the adoption of thc most advanced methods.
The result is that today in almost every city, town, village and rural district,
thc school is thc object of pfide on the part of all people and is accorded
their enthusiastic support. The school is the one institution for which
large sums of money arc ungrudgingly voted and in support of which taxes,
are cheerfully paid. . s
It is recognized, too, that the elementary school of today is something
more than a means of teaching children to.read, write and count correctly
It is realized that thc school is the training ground of citizenship, and that
the right type of citizen is th'e man or woman who. possesses not only rudimentary knowledge of the three R's, but who is physically St to endure the j
struggles and hardships of life, whose powers of observation, thought, initiative and general intelligence are developed, and whose educational training is of a character to make them fully efficient in their chosen occupation
or catling.
Hence, thc work of a Provincial Department of Education consists of
much more than the organization of school districts, the training of
teachers, and the payment of certain grants in support of schools. Realizing that a child cannot pursue its studies to the best advantage and concentrate on its school work if it is suffering from some physical defect or
disease,. Western Governments have created a branch devoted to school I
hygiene, and staffs a�� school nurses are employed who visit thc schools, I
report on thc systcm of lighting and ventilation, and whether the seating I
is conducive to health and the development of strong, upright bodies.
These nurses examine the children's eyes, teeth, throats, etc.. and report defects to the parents. Frequently they visit the. homes of defective children
and discuss their needs with the parents. In this way defects are found
and generally remedied of which parents and child may have been ignorant,
but which were the cause of indolence, lack of application, and general
backwardness in study. -Cleanly and healthful habits are taught and their
-importance emphasized.
Boys' and girls' clubs are organized, school fairs held, school gardens
and plots arranged,-and the rudiments of agriculture taught in rural schools
which are attended by the sons and daughters of our Western, farmers,
while manual and technical training and night schools are provided in urban
centres. . The girls are given lessons in domestic science, and thus equipped
' for thc discharge of home duties. J
Free text books are supplied, an ever-increasing army of inspectors is !
employed   with    a   view    to a steady increase in the efficiency in teaching j
methods, the standard of qualifications demanded of teachers is being raised!
year by year, compulsory school attendance laws administered by school
attendance officers are enforced With a view to seeing that every boy and
girl obtains, the benefits of an .elementary education, and special efforts are
put forth to develop schools among the many, communities of non-English
birth  in this Western  country in order that thc younger generation may
become imbued with Canadian ideals of citizenship.
These policies, so essential to the future, not only of thc children, but
of the State itself���because the stability of a State is dependent upon the
standard of its citizenship���costs an immense amount of money, especially
in these newer Provinces of ihe West where distances are great, population
yet small and widely scattered, and pioneer conditions in many respects
still prevail. It is not surprising, therefore, that in Saskatchewan last year
the largest single item of expenditure by the Provincial Government was
for education. Education called for the expenditure by the Government of
about one-quarter of the entire Provincial revenue, and what-is true of
Saskatchewan is approximately true of thc other Prairie Provinces.
It will be seen, therefore, that, notwithstanding thc fact that thcWcst-
crn Provinces do not enjoy the wealth and resources of the Eastern Provinces, and are laboring under pioneer conditions which have passed in the
older portion* of the Dominion, Legislatures and Governments here are
discharging thc fundam-rr.!:*! duty of government in providing*for an in-
tclligvn'.. trained citizenship, thus laying the foundations for a contented,*
pros parous and efficient State in Ike ycars to come.
Getting Ready For Rush of Business
. on Macketizie aiid Peace Rivers.
Preparations for the building of
two stern-wheel steamers which thc
Hudson's Bay Company proposes to
operate ��� on" the Mackenzie and Peace
Rivers are being made at Vancouver,
British Columbia. It is intended to
"send them knocked down into the
north and-.rebuild them there.
To incsxase its transportation facilities on th'e northern rivers, the
company is also having the steamship
Fort Simpson, operated for some
years on the Skeena River, dismantled. It will be shipped to the Mackenzie River to" assist in the rush
which is expected next spring.

J. W. Ij. Forsteiya Canadian artist,
was the first person to paint portraits"
of Their Majesties the Emperor and
Empress of Japan while in Tokio as a
delegate to" the World's Sunday
School convention. In fact they
were the first ever, painted of any of
the reigning heads of that country.
Neither the Emperor or Empress
s'at for their portraits, being contrary to the custom of Japan. Mr.
Forsler therefore got occasional
glimpses of the rulers, by special arrangement'and the work he turned,
out highly pleased them.

Rich, Red Blood Needed to Keep Up
Their Vitality.
If growing girls are to become well
'developed, hea!thv women their
blood supply must bc carefully
watched. Mothers should not ignore
their unsettled moods or the various
troubles that tell of approaching
womanhood. It should bc constantly
borne in mind that pale, bloodless
girls need plenty of nourishment,
plenty of sleep and regular open-air
exercise. But a lack of appetite, and
tired, aching limbs tend to hinder
progress. To save the weak, thin-
blooded sufferer she must have new,
rich, red blood and nothing meets
a case of this kind so well as Dr.

It is usually safe to say that when
a child, is pale, sickly, peevish and
restless, thc cause is worms. These
parasites range the stomach and intestines, causing serious disorders of
the digestion and preventing the infant from deriving sustenance from
food. Miller's Worm Powders, by
destroying the worms, correct these
faults of the digestion and serve_ to
restore the organs to healthy action.

"This  was the first mention" of   Almighty  Voice, that famous outlaw, who kept  this  section   of   Saskatchewan  in  an  uproar for a couple of years.      This  young Indian wasa"Saultea\ix of the  Duck  Lake band, and noted  for his  swift running.      He was  imprisoned  at Duck Lake by thc Mountics, pending trial'on the supposed^theft of a  steer; broke jail  that night, crossed  the  south  branch   of  the   Saskatchewan  through   drifting ice,  secured  a  pony,  cart  and  single barrelled gun  from some of his Indian friends and  struck north towards  Fort la Come,  8 young woman accompanying him.  The police were on his track next  morning, and the sergeant (an cx-Lifc  Guardsman) with a French haW-  b'-ecd interpreter, caught him up just  about where thc village of Beatty now  stands. T!*he Indian stopped his  pony, got out, knelt down and holding  up his right hand, called out, "Stop,  or  1   will  shoot!"      Bravely   the  old  soldier rode the outlaw down, but a  single shot struck him---.dead. And  now, with an empty gun and a muzzle-loader at that, was the opportunity  for Mr. Metis to. capture him. But  alas he turned tail and rode back as,  hard as he Could pelt to Joe McKay  {that famous scout) who was bringing up the rear with a buck-board, |  and was some twelve miles back at a  settler's house, waiting for their return with their pr.soner.

He raised his arms and his hands  grasped the low-hanging branch of a  tree. Its cool, rough bark felt good  to them. There was a fever in his  blood, a wild, -lawless surging in his  breast. Something, a subtle perfume,  indefinable as the rosy l'ning of a  dream, overpowered the scents of leaf  and blossom, and crept deep into his  innermost soul. Then- it passed, and  he stood before her with ...white, set  face.  She came over to him, a smile on  her lips. Her eye3 were dark with  wistfulncss. She stood, on tiptoe and  put her warm arms about his neck;  she drew his face down and held it  close against her own. "My man,"  she whispered, "my strong man."  He drew her to him then crushed  her close, knowing that he hurt her,  expecting that she would cry out; but  she was silent.  Suddenly, he found himself holding  her at arm's length, talking to her in  a rambling fashion, tolling her what  she must do. She was not to say or  do such things again. She was not  to remember anything that had happened���������Sh-- was not to see him alone  again. This���������this thing that had  happened was but a dream���������a dream  ���������she was to remember it as only a  dream.  And then he pushed her roughly  from him. She stumbled and almost  fell, but in the face turned to his, as  she stood swaying uncertainly for thc  moment, there rested a light such as  never had drifted down from tinted  skies or swept the twilight waters of  the shagland.  "You," she said���������and stopped with  a little catch in her breath���������and then,  defiantly���������"you are my man, Dorkin,;  my b-antiful man!

No need to ask himself the question, "Why, oh, why?" He passed  back along the trail. Slowly he walked, pondering deeply, striving blindly  for some solution���������there was but one.  She must go away. "Great God!" he  said aloud, "she, is but a child." And  then as quickly came another thought.  He stopped in his tracks, the '* blood  burning his cheeks with the shame of  self-contempt. What had he become  for the fraction of a minute, what had  he become?  His head swam and his nerves cried  aloud for something���������what?  Mechanically his right hand swept  to his jacket pocket, and with the action, realization came to him.

LYNCH  An   Acknowledged   Expert   in  All  Mattejs  Pertaining  t������  Household Management.  One of the largest cities in the  United States asked .me to lend my  assistance in combatting the appalling  amount of malnutrition which the Department of Health doctors found  among its children. And, strange.to  say, the malnutrition was by no means  limited to the children of poor folk.  Some of the children came of well-to-  do families. In only a small minority of cases was lack of money the  cause.    . Then what is the matter?  t invited the mothers of one hundred of these children to a little informal gathering. At first they let  me do most of the talking/let me tell  them that a diet of white bread, potatoes and meat and practically nothing  else might cause malnutrition. They  allowed me to become so enthusiastic  that I finally gave out printed slips on  j the suggested diet to combat malnutrition.  The best food workers believe^ that  a diet of milk���������lots of it���������cereals and  ceral foods, fruits and vegetables, fats  and foods from the egg-fish, meat-nut  group and a, very little sugar at the  Sea Islands > cn(* ������* a inca*' other conditions being  favorable, is the ideal diet for the  proper growth and development of a  child.  Up to this point the women had  been shy. But now a courageous  soul broke silence.  " It is all very well to say the  children should eat this and that  and that," she said, pointing to the  slip with her toil-worn finger, "but  my boy���������tlie one the doctor says is  undernourished, - won't eat- cereal  and he won't drink milk and he  don't like eggs and hates vegetables  and I have to beg with him to cat an  egg. And when he won't eat these  things what can I do?"  Suppose your child will not take  milk. Perhaps if you make it into cocoa  he wiU take it,,1 Or, perhaps.* he will  take it if it is made into a chocolate  pudding or a custard pudding. Vou  might put a pinch of baking soda into  the tomato*soup and then combine it  with equal parts of milk and serve it  as cream of tomato soup.  If you look through a cook-book  you Will find scores of* dishes calling   for   milk.     While   pies are notj  ���������the one adopted generally in Canadian  homes, is the policy of keeping Zam-Buk  always handy.
