So I hurried out to tlie  stable., ������rh.or������ 3It. jPunwick. was busy  with the seed grain, and told him that  Wa -^*riip*a -tysn^ed him. I was as brave  -as possible, perhaps I should rather  isay that I "was reckless.  "It Is the chance of a life-time, Sir.  Fenwick," I said��������� "help her a]l you  can, because it is hurting 3-ou both to  bear your disappoint ment separately.  :,And please excuse me if you think 3  am cheeky."  I followed him back to the house  Sn a few moment?, and  I  am afraid  cults l made for supper. Hut from  that day Mrs. Fenwick began 10 improve.

The days 'were not long 6  -*nough for s.\l I found %to do and Mar-1  ray was equally busy. "Though inex- ������  perienced we were systematic, and'  that alone saved u-s from hopeless"]  confusion. During the winter we had j  planned the next season's worlc, had?  even, with the assistance of farm t  papers, Agricultural College Bulletins |  and flip neighbors, drawn up a  schedule for ourselves.  While    I    was"   with Mrs. Feawiek  Murray  had   bought our  second cow  and the arrival of her calf shortly afterwards ihade U3 feel that we might  with reasonable solemnity    refer ...to  our' "stock"���������two horses,    two   cows  and'a calf were, we thought, a,  fair  showing for amateurs.      Except when  .Murray was very busy I had nothing  ���������to do with the cows, hut the children  claimed the calf as their special property    and    were . never happier than  when, thoy couid watch his  attempts  to climb bodily into a pail of milk.

To debt reduction the Dominion, the Provinces, municipalities  and individuals must give consideration. Before there can' he debt reduction there must first be a stoppage to further debt increases. "The average  individual will be; well adviScd If he refrains from going any deep*-r into debt  during .1924 and strives -with might and anain'to reduce present indebtedness  as much and as rapidly as po&?ible. Municipalities, the Pcoyinces an-.", xhe  .Dominion should all balance their budgets, not oy imposing additional iaxa- "  tion, but through the adoption of very necessary economies. Certain-capital  expenditures will, of course, be necessary, but these should "be restricted to  revenue producing services and the encouragement oi production of new  "wealth through the" -development of-natural resources.''  An example oi what can and ought to be done is furnished by the present  management of the Canadian National Railways. In 1921 the CNR. had an  operating profit of: only three million dollars which did not go very far towards meeting its interest charges. -Last year the C.Nlj .increased its operating surplus to ������18,000,000 or more, and while "tMs did-not meet interest  ...charges in full, it did materially reduce the deficit to he met by the country  at large.  How was it accomplished? By larger earnings through increased traffic  and the development of productive services, but also through a very, gratifying .reduction in operating expenses resulting from good management, the  elimination of waste, and sound economies. For example, gross earnings ot"  the C.N.R. last November increased by ������689,578 over November, 1921, but  operating expenses were decreased by almost two million dollars, resulting  in a net operating surplus of ������-4,551,318, an increase of 135 per cent, over the  corresponding month of 1921. Sir Henry Thornton anticipates .an operating surplus this year, if nothing untoward happens, of ������80,000,000 and he predicts that by-'th'e- end of 1925 the C.N .It. will cease to be a burden on the  Dominion treasury.  Another problem to be tackled by Canadians, individually and collectively, is to mahe Canada-a-more self-contained aradjse3$-supporting country. To  solve not-only our-transpoz'tation prob3em, but other economic weaknesses, it  should' be the- iiini of Canadians to develop our own natural resources to a  far greater extent and thereby create a larger internal trade.

The rich red  blood which these pills actually make,  strengthens       the       whole       system.  The nerves are    strengthened,    headaches vanish, the-.appet3te .improves,  and    once    again - there is" joy in life.  Among the thousands benefited by tho  use of this medicine is Mrs. Jos."

Twenty years ago it was tlie  common experience both in the Pittsburg and the Ontario gas well district,  that in the cold weather when a good  flow of gas was required the presence  of a liquid condensate that accumulated in tho low places on the pipe line,  interfered with the- steady flow, and  necessitated pumping out or draining  at  intervals.    - Nobody  realized  then  that in a few years' time this liquid  would become Ian important article of  WEAK  and DIZZY SPEIX.S  Since She Used  MILBURN'S  Heart and Nerve Pills ���������  Miss Bertha Charrette, Ilegina.
