One day recently the writer of this weekly article read two divergent  views of Canada's progress during- the past few years. * One was Pessimistic;  the other emit e7 optimistic. Yet there was much of * truth in both, altogether  neither writer appeared to take into consideration the effects of the* Great  War on the progress and development of the Dominion.  The pessimistic note was sounded by Miss Agnes Laut, well-known writer.  and lecturer. She is not at all pLeased with Canadian progress, beiieves that  sectionalism is rife, and that Canadians are not living up to tlieir possibilities.  Declaring that she is frankly very depressed about Canadian conditions, "Miss  Laut states that what this country needs just now is a ringing message of  optimism, founded on fact, and that she cannot give "tin Canada's mental outlook changes toward the world."  "I used to think," continues Miss Laut, "it was economic pressure prevented Canada measuring up to her unequalled inheritance' of great natural  wealth. Now I know it" isn't. It is your lack of dedication to the ideal'in  which your nation was conceived and horn���������'He shall hold dominion from sea  to sea.' Instead of that 5 see Canadian sectionalism growing." And then  Miss Laut dwells on the exodus o������ Canadians to the United States, and the  fact of a population of only nine mllions whereas, she says, Canada ought to be  a nation of 40 to 60 millions, humming with prosperity that could be heard  around the world. \  The opposing, and more optimistic view is presented in articles appearing in Toronto Saturday Night, which recalls the prediction of the late Sir  Wilfrid Laurier that the Twentieth Century would be Canada's Century. Sir  Wilfrid'made this prediction in the days when Canada was emerging from a  long period of halting growth into an era of amazing progress���������an era, 1898  to 1910, which even Miss Laut says was Canada's one era of "humming prosperity."  Almost one-quarter of that century has passed, amTwhat does the record  disclose? Toronto Saturday Night finds in the progress of Canada during the  last twenty-five years a conclusive answer that thus far the Dominion has lived up to its title of being "The Country of the Twentieth Century.". It note^  that Canada has become in fact, as well as in promise, the controlling factor  in the world's wheat trade���������one of the. giants of international coromerce; it  draws attention to Canada's astonishing advance in fhe production of pulp  and paper; it refers to the extension of Canada's manufacturing activities in  countless directions until today the Dominion is ranked high among the industrial nations of the* world; it "cites the tremendous expansion in trade and.  commerce to a-.'figure'-' which few business men would have imagined or dared.  to prophesy twenty or even fifteen years ago.  But what of the future? Unquestionably, and notwithstanding the  growth of tlie past twenty-five"years,, encouraging in-many, r espect^. as: that  growth undoubtedly is^JCanada is yet a long way from; beibgrthe 5duntry it  ought to be, and Nature, with its bountiful gifts, intended it should be. What  is the reason? Is it sectionalism and lack of a great national ideal, as Miss  Laut says, or is it the economic pressure of a great and highly organized nation to tlie south in which Canadians can find a home without the disabilities  of an unfamiliar language andcustoms which most emigrants from one country  to another���������suffer, or is it Canada's somewhat rigorous climate, or is there  some lack of initiative and courage on the part of Canadians in applying themselves to the development of the Dominion's great wealth of natural resources?  It would be idle to. deny that there is too much sectionalism in Canada.  The fact of two races, two official languages, two great opposing religious  groups, -necessarily tends towards sectionalism. This is further accentuated  by the geography of Canada which divides the Dominion into two economic  groups, east and west. Time and development alone can fully overcome  these obstacles, and they are being overcome. Racial and religious animosities are not nearly so acute as they were a quarter of a century ago.  Notwithstanding tbe attraction of the United States, Canada's population  has increased by nearly four millions since the Twentieth Century dawned,  and as the Dominion grows and develops, and opportunities are thereby increased, the attraction of the United States will steadily lessen.  Canadians have displayed courage and initiative, and for a nation of few  people scattered over half a continent, have remarkable achievements to their  credit. Nevertheless, it must be admitted that our capfains of finance an'd  industry have not exerted themselves as they should, nor taken full advantages  of the great opportunities which were theirs to develop and bring prosperity  to _h-2ir country.      There is room for vast improvement here.  Canadians *-hmsld develop a national ideal. They should be more optimistic regarding Canada's future, because, without doubt, the Dominion faces a  career, as Toronto Saturday Night puts it, in which the period of economic  youth and growth has still a long and promising course to run,  Sr'l-'sJS       A������t������,a.i_.ya������a'a+       Aim.      +*������---QJVS  Reliable Sei-vice With America  TheV'20.0-kH"owatt. .transmitting 'apparatus by - wiiich.-the..British 'Government hopes to -Inaugurate wireless  telephony conversations with.

Tfiis W5*s-divided amongst  the provinces in the following order:���������*  Ontario, $400,511,000; Saskatchewan,  $291,439,000; Quebec, $232,580,000; Alberta,. $200,950,000; Manitoba, $84,-  081,000; British Columbia, $43,376,000;  Nova Scotia,-$40,613,000; New Brunswick. $32,653,000; and Prince Edward  Island, $15,929,000".  The province of Ontario alone accounted for 29 per cent, of the total  agricultural    revenue;    Saskatchewan  21 per .cent., Quebec 17 per cent., and  Alberta 15 per cent.     Quebec and Ontario, taken together accounted for 47  per cent.' of all agricultural revenue; '  the prairie '���������Provinces' for 43 ^ex cent. -  the  three  Mara time" Provinces  6 per  cenfcr and-British Columbia. 3 per cent.  The items which entered into Canada's 1923 agricultural revenue were:  (1) Field crops, $899,166,000; (2) dairy  products,  $226,356,000;   (3)   farm  animals,    $82,402,000;    (4)    poultry    and  eggs, $58,647,000;  (5) zruits and vegetables,  $5S,216,000;   (6)    maple    products, $4,769,000;  (7) clover and grass  seed, $4,360,000;   (8)  tobacco, $3,518,-  000;  (9) wool, $3,160,000; and (10) fur  farming, $1,538,000..    Of the total agricultural revenue, field crops accounted for 17 Per cent; farm animals for  6 per cent.; poultry and eggs for 4 per  cent.; and fruits and vegetables for 4  pef cent.  Ontario leads in all items of agricultural revenue with the exception,^ of  field crops, tn which Saskatchewan has  supremacy, -maple products, which  goes to Quebec, and fur farming, which  belongs to Prince Edward Island.  Field crops account for the highest  item of provincial agricultural revenue  in each case.  Canada's agricultural revenue ot  $1,342,132,000 In 1*_2_ compares with  that of $1,389,289,000 In 1922 and of  $1,383,958,000 In 1921. Increases In  farm anln-tals, dairylnc and fruit and  vegetables are .offset,-by decreases In  field crops, wool, poultry and eggs,  maple product- and tobacco. Tho  value of fur for-.Ing and clover and  grass seed was the same.

But he had no heart for  the jest, mindful of the change that,  soon must come to her happv mbod.     j Ped in the present winter;  He entered -the police slmck by the | bee^_^red^at Jeast r- year  back door: and looked in for a moment -���������������-    ~ - -  As might a wolverine in defense of  her young, he pounced upon the silver  fox pelt that lay on ������he sleeping bench  beside' the murdered youth���������lay in  such a "way as to indicate its "purchase  had already been negotiated. He  studied the set of the fur and sniffed  at the tanning on the inner side. His  eyes widened as lie held the beautiful  exhibit before him and realized the  possibilities that were opened up by  this definite clue.  "Magic skin," he murmured half  aloud after the fashion of men who  find themselves often alone in the  wilderness. "You widen the mystery; may yo-i help to close it!"*  Gently, without shrinking from, the  cold touch, he removed the last clutch  of O'Malley's fingers from the black  fox���������probably . tlie pelt of ostensible  contention. Close examination of  this showed the same conditions to  exist.  Neither of the Loxes had been trap-  both had  on Olespe. yHis prisoner from Ladj--  Franklin oblivious of his fate, seemed  10 revel in the luxury" of the guard  room's warmth. The sergeant went  through and out the front way.  "Rideau Street indeed," ran his  thoughts. "What a name for that  streak through the snow in Armistice! "  At that, Moira showed that she  knew her Ottawa, for Rideau is the  street on which lace the re"d brick  headquarters of the Royal Mounted.  Would that she had never left the  capital! Would that lie could waft  her home again, sacrifice though that  would be in this ice-bound isolation!  Straight to Avic's hut he went g,nd  broke the seal upon the door, as was  Magic skin," he repeated, and  breathed a wish too fervent for utterance., even in the hut where he stood  alone.  In the act of wishing, memory p_t  its finger on him. There came to  mind that famous tale of Balzac's,  "The Magic'Skin." The story dealt  with the "hide of an ass which; with  every wish invoked from it, shrank until the greedy owner was threatened  with' the disappearance of his magic  possession.  Perhaps" Seymour had best cease  "wishing But he recalled Tne. had a  pair of magic skins in hand;; grew defiant of the V'".neifc.ble myth, and wished again, more fervently eyen than  before that it would fall to his lot to  solve    the   deepened   "mystery of the  his right.    Again his eyes were upon   Oliver O'Malley murder,  nil that remained of her "merry broth- \     Opening the pea jacket of his Winer."      He wondered  about death and,j ter uniform, he tucked both furs be-.  the hereafter and various things that j neath, his tunic.      Closing and reseal-  never should enter a Mountie's mind i ing    the    hut,    he strode back to the  1 police cabin. Had he intended to appropriate the silver and black treasures   for   his   own   gain,   he   scarcely  north    of  ���������not when he's stationed  Sixty-six.  Then, suddenly, his eyes seemed to  open as though a mote had been cast  from each. Perhaps this was effected by the magic of Moira's charm and  beauty. Certainly he saw details? that  had not iropresf-ed him the previous  afu-rnoon.

Regard  For The Law  Nowhere In the civilized woiid,  perhaps, is there more respect paid to  the coroner and his inquests than in  the Dominion of Canada. This regard is not confined to the settled  provinces, but reaches beyond the  Arctic Circle eren to the farthermost  post of the Royal Mounted in latitude  ���������_<*���������Bllesmere En-land, on the edge of  rhe Polar Sea. This afternoon in  Armistice was being devoted to the  ancient formality of the law.  As one of the miners, brought in hy  Constable "La Marr from Prospect to  .servo an juryman, put it ln half-hearted protest to Seymour:  "You red coats would hold an inquest at the North Pole if word came  to you that Rome one was violently  (lend up there/'  In his capacity as coroner.

"Olespe says they are the rich men  of the country," reported the interpreter.     , .  Shrugging hik- shoulders over the  apparent hopelessness of the situation,  Seymour triod again: "A3k him what  he thinks the police game into the  country for."  "To make, us unhappy," came the  report presently.  "In what way���������unhappy?"  Feeling   that  he  was   making   progress, the  sergeant &ot to the   vital  point.      "Ask him what I, said-to him  when I put htm under arrest?"  "He says,"-translated the interpreter, "you told him he'd get hurt if. he  talked too much."-  Seymour decided to let it go at that  and led" the way to. the outbuilding  used as morg-ue. There Olespe iden-  . tilled the remains of his wife, which  | had been ' sledded so many snowy  miles'-because there was no possibility  of finding a -white jury nearer. The  Eskimo added indifferently what was  translated into ''She no good wife."  Back in the station the sergeant told  of his investigations at the scene of  the crime, listed possible witnesses  and summarized their version of a  tragedy all .too common among the  Eskimo who are prone to the menage I  a tr'ois. The jury promptly brought'  in a verdict against Olespe, and Seymour, in his capacity of magistrate,  held him to trla,i.  They were ready then for the second  case  of the  day,  the  formal inquiry  into the death of Oliver O'Malley.    As  Karmack was to he the most import-  rant witness,  a  change was  made  in  the jury by substituting for him  tlie  recently    arrived    missionary.      with  these   four   and   his   constable   clerk,  Seymour went down the trail to the  hut which Avic. had occupied.      That  Karmack elected to stick by the stove  at the  post  until  the  jury  returned  caused    the    coroner-sergeant  secret  rejoicing. ���������    He saw to it that,La Marr  diaynot-enter the-hut.     The jury, see-,  ing the interior for the first time, did  not miss the fox-felt clews  which he  had appropriated that morning.  Karmack and the Eskimo relative  who had loaned Avic the hut, g;ave"the  only testimony. This the jury held  sufficient on which to find a verdict  against the^fox hunter and when the  fact had been duly recorded the coroner's court was declared closed.  The saddest task of the day was. at  hand���������one from vhich   these    strong  men    shrank,.   but    which none was  ready to shirk, y Presently a strange  procession came up the trail from the  hut of tragedy.      In the lead was the  police   team   of   malamutes,   with  La  Marr beside  the foremost dog, holding him by leash to a dignified pace.  They drew a sled carrying a blanketed   burden.       This   vehicle   Seymour  steadied  with  the  aid. of: a gee-pole.  The prospectors and Harry'; Karmack  brought Tip  in the  rear  with  bowed  heads. '''. ;- >7      y '-* '���������  The way led. eventually, to the  newly opened Mission House at the  door of which Morrow met them. The  dogs were unhitched and taken away  by La Marr. The others picked up  the sled and - carried it into one of the  bedrooms. From another room could  be heard stifled .sobs and -words ot  .jjcomfo'rt. Moira d'Malley knew, then,  that her sisterly rush'into the Frozen  North, -whatever its real object, had  been in vain. . The missionary's wife  had broken the news of death without  the real detail and hb-*.v was comforting her.  On returning, to the post, Seymour  was momentarily surprised to see that  the police dog team ha;d been hitched  to another sled���������this one lightly loaded. The native .hostler was .holding  them in Waiting .Inside he found La  Marr pacing the floor like some animal tenant of a zoo.  "Where away, Charlie?" he asked.  "After Avic.      I'm just waiting for  you to issue the warrant.     You promised me the chance at him, you must  remember."   . _  "But why to-night?"  The constable gave him an impatient glance. "I can make that  Eskimo camp on MuBk-ox to-night;  I'll be that far on my way. Haven't  wo. lost time enough through my mistake"?".  It took but a moment to.* Seymour  to issue the warrant charging one  Avic, Eskimo, with tho murder by  strangulation .> of Oliver O'Malley,  which was in accord with tho verdict  '������_  ISI!

Wanted���������An Eskimo Fox  After the exciteml-at attending his  his return from the North patrol, the  short winter days and the far. longer  nights passed slowly for the O. C. ot  Armistice detachment, now reduced to  commanding himself. One week-  two weeks���������part of a third had been  crossed off the calendar without any  word coming from his man-hunting  constable. Seymour wasn't exactly  worrying yet, but he was beginning to  wish he had not .been bo generous  about giving young La Marr this  chance to redeem himself. ;  Above all else he desired the custody of Avic, the fox hunter. The  body of the accused Eskimo would not  satisfy him; no more would a report  of his death. Nothing would do but  Avic In the quick.  Often In the endless evenings, while  intermittent bli-zards raged about the  shuttered windows, he would take out  the black and sliver pelts. From various angles he wculd argue their bearing oh the case. More than ever was  he assured that they were not of recent trapping. The fur was that of  ^animals which had been through a  long, easy winter���������one when rabbits  had been plentiful. This was not a  rabbit winter  on  the  arctic  prairies  It Is the third Anglican cathedral  to be built in Engian*d since the He-  formation.

"Ralph Knott represents  another example of youthful achievement in architecture.

New   United   States   Quota   Law  . Prove Benefit to Canada  *- j -      ~ "��������� i  (By Norm-in S. Hankln) -  Canada stands to benefit materially  by the new pnited States Immigration  Quota Law which comes into effect at  midnight-on June 30th"next. It will  be of advantage to the" Dominion in  two ways, first, by the very, considerable reduction of all quotas, and, second, by the; provision that restricts  immigration rVo ai Canada by barring  out all but Canadian-born or Canadian  citizens resident in the Dominion for  five years or more, as compared with  the present regulation that practically  puts a one-year resident in,Canada on  a par-with a bona fide Canadian citizen.

The conditions, in brief, would require a more detailed interpretation of  certain provisions "of the convention;  which are seen as affecting United  States rights. in-.the zone, a more definite declaration of 'the intention of  the new administration there to maintain - an open- door policy and an acceptance by the joint administration  of .full responsibility for safeguarding  American/interests.

Craelty To Animals  Various Points Of View As To What  Constitutes Cruelty   -  Arnold Bennett,  Lhe English novelist, recently went to Spain and saw a  bullfight.      He said it was cruel, although he was not disgusted.     But he  said Englishmen had no right whatever to criticize the Spaniards for the  cruelty in the bullring while the former hunted foxes and chased mother ot-  iers.       auu ue Said, me uiueii.j  lumvi,-  ed uppn the horses in the bullring was  nothing io the refined moral and physical cruelty Inflicted on splendid racehorses in the Grand National Steeplechase each year. /  So points of view vary as tot what  is,: cruel and no nation can afford to  reprove another until its own hands  are clean. It is safe *to gay, for example, that the barbaric torture inflicted on fur-bearing animals in Canada each season by the use of the steel  trap is such as to give Canadians no  right whatever to speak of the cruelty  to animals on the part of other people.  Kindness to anlr**als begins at home.  The action of the British authorities  in summoning the cowboys in London  will have its best effect in drawing attention to the problem of animal treatment.���������Ottawa Citizen.  B.C..

Ancient Legend Again Fulfilled  Clock In Hampton Court Palace Stops  Before Death of Resident  By the stopping of the famous astronomical clock of   Henry   VIII.   at  Hampton Court Palace, and the death,  within a few hours of one of the palace inmates  the ancient legend  sup-  rounding    the    "Clock of Death" has  once more been fulfilled.      Tradition  runs  that  the  stopping of the  clock  portends tho imminent death ot a palace  resident.      On Juno  13,  for the  first tlmo for many years,*the clock  stopped, and that night an elderly woman, Miss Jane Cuppage, daughter of  General    Sir    Burko    Cuppage,    who  fought at Watorloo, was found dead In  her apartments.      Next  morning tho  clock was started again, and no causo  for its stoppago could be discovered.  An official of the    palace    said    that  twice within his personal knowledge  someono has died a  few hours uftor  tho  clock  stopped.      Made 1540.  the  clock registers the hour of tho day,  tho day of tho month, position of the  sun, number ot days ulnco tho beginning of tho year, and high water mark  atyLondon Bridge.  a/Lfter Shaving  Rub the face with Minard's  mixed with aweet oil. , Very  soothing to the skiq.
