Published. By Special Arrangement 'With the Author.
Perhaps it was part of the Plan that
the diversion should come at that
moment, but the rebellion in Bculah's
heart was by no nicaus suppressed.
Pulling a sun-bonne'l upon her head
she called the dog, which came leaping upon her with boisterous affection,
and hurried down the path to the field
where thc cows stood almost lost in a
jungle of green oats. She soon located the breach in the fence, and,
with the help of the dog, quickly turned the cows toward it. But alack!
just as victory seemed assured a rabbit was frightened from its hiding-
place in the green oats, and sailed
forth in graceful bounds across the
pasture. The dog*, oi. course, concluded that the capture of thc rabbit
was of much more vital importance
to thc Harris homestead than driving
any number qf stupid cattle, and darted across the field in pursuit, wasting*
his breath in sharp, eager yelps as he
went. ' Whereupon the cows turned
oatward again, not boisterously nor
insolently, but with a calm persistence that steadily wore out thc girl's
strength and patience. They would
not move a foot toward the pasture
unless she drove them; they would
move only one at a time; as she drove
one ihe others pushed farther into the
oat-field, and when she turned to
pursue them the onc she had already
driven followed at her heels. The
sun was hot, the oats were rank, thc
wild buckwheat tripped her as she
ran; her appeals to the dog*, now seated on a knoll looking somewhat fool-,
ishly for the rabbit which had given
him the slip, and her commands to'
the cattle alike fell on unheeding ears.
She was hi.no joyous mood at best,
and thc pcrvcrsencss of things, aggravated her beyond endurance. Her
callings to the cattle became more
and more tearful, and presently ended in a sob.
"There now, Beulah, don't worry;
we will have them in a minute," said
a quiet voice, and looking about she
found Jim almost at \ her elbow-, his
omnipresent smile playing gently
about Ms white teeth. "I was down
at tbe creek filling the tank, when I
saw you had a little rebellioriyph your
hands,' and I thought reinforcements
might be In order." -  y~
"You might 've hollered farther
back," she said, half reproachfully, but
there was a light of appreciations..-in
her eye when she dared raise it. toward him..'... "I'm afraid I was beginning to be very���foolish."
She tripped again on the treacherous buckwheat, but he held her arm
in a strong grasp against which the
weight of her slim figure seemed but
as a feather blown against a wall.
The life of the plains had bred In
Beulah admiration. for physical
strength, and she acknowledged his
firm grip with an admiring glance.
They they set about their .task, but
the sober-eyed cows had no thought
of being easily deprived ..of their
feast, and it.was* some time before
they were all turned back into the
pasture and tho fence temporarily
repaired behind them.
"I can't thank you enough," Beulah, was saying. ( "You just keep piling one kindness on top of another.
Say, Jim, honest, what makes you do
But at that moment the keen, blast
ot an engine whistle came cutting
through the air���a long clear note,
followed by a scries of toots in rapid
"I guess they're running short of
water,' 'said Jim. "I must hustle."
So uayIng lie ran to the ford of the
creek where th-*** tank-wagon was still
standing, and in a minute his strong
frame was swaying back and i'orth
to tho rhythmic clanking of the pump.
But it was some minutes bofore the
tank was full, and again the clarion
call of tha whistle came insistently
through the air. Hastily dragging up
tho hose, be uttered a sharp command
to the horses; their great shoulders
socketed into the collars; tho tugs
tightened, quivering with the strain;
the wheels 'grated in the gravel, and
ilje "heavily-loaded wagon swung its
iray up the hank of the coulee.
Meanwhile other things were tran��-
,1r!ng. Harris had returned from
|>wn the night before with tho fixed
'. Has an awful struggle. ..-Lots to do,
all kinds . of worry, poor appetite
headaches, weakness. Her one desire
is for more strength and better health.
What sickly worn out women need ,is

intention of paying 'an early visit to
the Farther West. He and Riles
had spent more time than they should
breasting the village bar, while the latter drew a picture of rising colour of
the possibilities which the new lands
afforded. Harris was not a man
who abused himself witlf liquor, and
Riles, too, rarely forgot that indulgence was expensive, and had to be
paid for in, cash. **��� Moreover, Allan
occasioned his father some uneasiness. He was young, and had not
yet learned the self-control to be expected in later life. More than once
of late Allan -had crossed the boundary of modration, and John Harris
was by no means indifferent to the
welfare of his only son. Indeed, the
bond between the two was so real and
so intense that Harris had never been
able to bring himself to contemplate
their separation, and the boy had not
even so much as thought of establishing a home of his own. Harris
sometimes wondered at this, for Allan
was popular in the neighborhood,
where his good appearance, strength,
and sincere honesty made him something of 'a favourite.. The Idea of
homesteading together assured further years of close relationship between father and son, and the younger
^nan_ .fell in whole-heartedly with it.
"\\r6'ii hurry^ up the ploughing, Dad,
and run West before,the* harvest,is.on
us'*." Allan said as they rode -.home
through..,the- darkness-. "|We can file
on our land and get back: for the fall
wrork. Then we will go out for the
winter and commence our duties. The
only question is, Can they grow anything on that land out there?"""
"That's what they used to ask when
We    came    to ^Manitoba,"  said  the
father.     "And there were some years
J doubted the answer myself.      Some
parts were froze out .year after year,
980 fc.
and they're among the best   in   the
country now, and^ never    think    of
frost.     The same' thing'Il happen out
there, and' -we-might as well be in the'
game." r
To do him justice, It was not altogether the desire for .more wealth that
prompted. Harris.- It was the call of
new lana; the call, he had heard, and
answered In the early eighties; the
old appetite that had. lain dormant 'for
a quarter of a century, but was ,still/
in his blood, waiting only a suggestion of the oben spaces, a whiff from
the dry grass on the wind-swept
plains, the zigzag of a wagon-trail
streaking afair into the horizon, to set
it tingling again. The thought of
homesteading revived rich old memories���memories from which the kindly years had balmed tho soreness and
the privation and the hardship, and
left only the joy and the eourage and
the comradeship and the conquering.
It was the call of the new land, which
has led the race into every clime and
flung its flag beneath every sky, and
Harris's soul 'again leaped to the summons.
So this morning father and son were
especially anxious that not a moment
of their ploughing weather should be
lost, aud It was particularly aggravating when tho hired'man's long delay
resulted in a bubbling sputter followed by a dry hiss from the injector,
warning the engineer that the water-
tank was empty. Allan shot an
anxious glance down the road to tho
coulee, but tho water team was��not
in sight. Seizing the whjle cord, he
sent its peremptory summons Into the
air. Harris looked up .from tho
ploughs, and the two exchanged
frowns of annoyance. But the water
stood iilgh In tho glass, and Allan did
not reduce the speed, although ho cut
thp link action another notch to got
ey&vy ounce of advantage from tho
expansion. Down tho -field they
wont, tho big Iron horse shouldering
Itself Irresistibly along, while tbe
ploughs left their dozen furrows of
moist, fresh soil, and tho blackbirds
hopped gingerly behind. But tho
water went down, down In tho "glass,
and still there was no sign of a further supply. Allqn again cut tho air
with his whistle, and at length,.with a
muttered Imprecation, ho slammed
the throttle shut and Jumped from tho
engine. *
His father" ran up from the ploughs.
"What do you think of that?" tho
younger man exclaimed. "Jim mu3t
have bad trouble. BoR^od, or broke
a tongue, pr somothing. Nover foil
down like that before,"
"K-wp a keen eye ott you* fire,"
uald HarrlH, "and I'll go down and
ita .��what's wrong with him." 8o the
farmer Btrode off across the ploughed field. The delay annoyed him,
AntX he felt iinreftnanably crofts with
Travern, An ho plodded on through
the heavy koII bin temper did not improve, and he waa talking to hlmnelf
by the time lie came upon Travern,
giving lilcv team their wind at tho top
of the hill fflawing up from the crook.
"What    kept    you?" be demanded
when he came within a rod .-of the
wagon. "Here's the outfit shut down
waiting fox water, and you " "
"I'm s.orry,-Mr. Harris -'
"That?" ain't, what I asked you. You
can't*, make riteam with. sorrow. What
have you^beeft- foolin' about?"
"I haven't been fooling. As to
what delayed me���well, you're delaying ,me now. Better jump on and
ride up wlth-me."-
"So you won't toll me, eh You
think you can do what you like with
my teamNand my time, ancl it's none
of my business. We'll see whose
business it is."
Harris .came threateningly toward
the wagon, but was met only by the
imperturable. smile of his hired man.
He thrust his foot on*a spoke of the
wheel and prepared to spring on to
the tank, but at that moment the
horses stirred and his foot slipped.
Seeing that the farmer was about to
fall Travers seized him by tlie collar
of his shirt, but in so doing he leaned and lost ,his own balance, when the
weight of ihe falling man came upon
him, and the two tumbled on to the
grass In each other' arms..-
- Allan, having satisfied himself .that
the engine would take no harm,-had
followed his father, . and came over
the crest of the ridge above the coulee just in time to see Jim apparently strike his employer and the two
struggling on the grass together. In
an instant the young man's hot blood
was In his head; he rushed forward,
ana just as Jim had risen to his knees
he struck him a stinging blow in the
face that measured him'again in the
It was only for an Instant. Travel's sprang to his feet, a red line slowT-
ly stretching down his cheek as he
did so. Allan came upon him swinging a tremendous blow at the jaw;
but Jim guarded skilfully, . and answered with a smash from the shoulder-straight on the chin, which laid
his adversary's sis feet prostrate before him.
Allan rose slowly, sober but determined, and for a moment it looked as
though a battle royal were to be
fought, on the spot; both men strong,
lean, rigid, hard* as iron, and quick
as steel; Allan angry, careful, furious;
Jim calm, confident and still smiling.
But Harris rushed .between them and
seized his son by the arms.
"Stop it, Allan; stop, I say.. 1fou
musn't fight. Jim didn't hit me���I'll
say that for him. Now quit it. As
for you" (turning to Jim), "I'm sorry
for this, but you have yourself to
blame.- I'll give you ono more chance
to answer me���what kept you?"
"I don't choose to answer," was
Jim's replyrspoken in tho most casual
tqne. His eye was" rapidly closing
where Allan's blow had fallen on - it,
but his white teeth still, glistened behind "a-smile.
"All right," said Harris. "You <?an
go to the house and tell Mrs. Harris
to pay you what is coming." And the
farmer climbed on to the wragon and
tookythe  reins  himself.
When Jim entered the kitchen he
was received with astonishment Y by
Mrs. Harris and Beulah. ''Why,
whatever has happened?"; they exclaimed.- "Has there been an accident? "���' You're hurt!"*
But Jim smiled, and said:  "No accident at all.     I have merely decided
to go homesteading.?     And he went
up the sairs to packuiis belongings.   *

It is altogether probable that, even before tlie present issue -of this paper  reaches its readers, the Dominion Parliament will he dissolved and "writs  ' issued for a new Parliament whose legal span of life will run until 1927  unless,' because of some exceptional' circumstance, it is deemed advisable  to consult the people before that year. *. -     * --  In compliance with the terms of the constitution of Canada a census  of the population was taken in the month of June last.     It is also provided  pen the completion of such census the reprfjsen-  *3*i*v   t Ti ct  ct    r.rtw4.  xi      trtT^ti^  titwltrtr*    l-ltn   lrXXt~L-X\JXX      X~-J.lA.tr      UJ/  tation of the several Provinces in the House of Commons shall be readjusted in such manner as to give to each Province' equality of representation  based on population such readjusted representation to become effective upon  the termination of the then existing Parliament.  It is admitted by all people in Canada, from Premier Meighen down,  that that portion of Canada .west of the Great Lakes will be shown to be  en-titled to a larger representation than it now enjoys, and the fact Is equally  well recognized that Canada east of the Gr,eat Lakes will not be entitled  to quite as many representatives as it now has.  Nevertheless, although* it would require only a few months���������more to  compile and tabuTate the 1921 figures o������ population and thus make possible  an early and fair readjustment of the representation of the Provinces In the  House of Commons, Parliament is hastily dissolved, although no new or  sudden issue has arisen, and writs for a new Parliament Issued which *wlll  result in Canada for tho next five years being governed by a House of Com-  ��������� mons which is not truly representative of the country. ,  The potion taken may be constitutional within the strict meaning of the  law, but it seems a violation of the spirit *of the constitution. Yet it is not  the first tirqe this has happened in Canada. In fact ever since the population of the West began to increase so rapidly, while the population of Ontario and the Maritime Provinces failed to keep pace with Quebec's increase in population, there has b*een a tendency at^ Ottawa to precipitate  general elections in the year of the census taking right oh the eve of redistribution but before making It effective.  Let us take a historical glance back over the past thirty years and the  last three census enumerations. In 1S91 the House of Commons consisted  of 215 members representing the'Provinces as follows: Ontario 92, Quebec  65, Nova Scotia 21, New Brunswick 16, Prince Edward Island 6, Manitoba 5,  British Columbia G, North West Territories 4^_ Thi**} was a census year but  instead of a redistribution bill being passed - before going to the country,  Parliament was dissolved, the issue being "Reciprocity with the United States.  It was not until five years later that the country secured the benefits of the  readjustment which was really due in 1S91.  The next census came in 1001, but a general election had been held the  preceding year, but as the result of the previously delayed redistribution Ontario was. entitled, to only 86 members instead of 92, the three Maritime  Provinces lost ?, while Manitoba doubled its quota from 5 to 10, the North  West Territories from 4 to 11, and British Columbia added one. '" In 1905  ^ the new Provinces of- Alberta and Saskatchewan were created, Saskatchewan being given 10 members and Alberta *7.v This additional representation became effective in 1908. :Z>-0^l; -  While the figures of the census of l&ll were being "tabulated, .Reciprocity with th^e United States again became a live issue and an Agreement  signed with the United States caine before Parliament for .'ratification.'  Strong opposition developed in Eastern Canada and the Opposition obstructed and blockaded the passage of the bill. The Government thereupon appealed to the country, and once again, the West was deprived of its rightful  Movement In Progress to Extend  / - Union of South Africa.  The Union' of South Africa, over  which General Smuts presides, contains four provinces, but is only a  third larger than British Columbia, or  two-thirds the area of Quebec.

It would add 1,500,000  to the native population, with some  40,000 Europeans.  The Government of Mr. Smuts is  also -administering the former T*er-  man protectorate of West Africa, an  estate of 320,000 square miles, with a  small European population and .several hundred thousand -Ifatlves. The  number of the natives was greatly  l-educed, and some races nearly exterminated during the German occupation. General Smuts Is thus likely to have under-his jurisdiction 1,200,-  000 equare miles of territory, with a  000 square miles of territory, with a  total populsfJtion not much less than  that of Canada.���������The Daily Province.  27'Years'the  Same Good  Tea���������and  Always in tho  . / Sealed  .

That long dela3**ed readjustment further reduced On-  yiiirio's representation to 82,"a"loss of 10 members in two decades; Nova  Scotia dropped to 1G, a loss of 5 in the same period; New Brunswick fell to  11, a loss of 5; P.E.I, to 3, or only one-half what it had In 1891. On the  other hand Manitoba increased to 15, or three times its representation in  1S91; Saskatchewan got 16 and Alberta 12, as compared with 4 for the  N.W.T. in 1S91; British Columbia was accorded 13 as compared with 6 in  1891; and the Yukon was given one. ?  In other words, although the membership .of thc House.of Commons ouly  increased from 215 in 1891 to 234 on the strength of the census of 1911,  the representation west of the Great Lakes rose from 15 to 57, while the  representation east of tho Great Lakes fell from 200 .to 177. >  It is generally agreed, both East and West, that the same evolution  In the political power of the country Is* taking place; that is, that the representation o! the West*will be increased and that of the East decreased when  the final figures for 1921 are tabulated.

The anaemia -of* young girls may be  inherited, or It may be caused by bad  air, unsuitable food, hasty, and irregular eating, insufficient out-of-do������r  exercise and not enough rest and  sleep.

In a majority of cases constipation is present. /There may be  no great loss of flesh, but usually the  complexion takes on a greenish-yellow pallor.  Cases of this *kind, if neglected, become more serious, but if taken In  timo there Is no need to worry. * Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, which are free  from any harmful' or habit-forming  drug, aro just the tonic neodod to  remedy this wretched state of health.
