C  Conditions A.re Essentially" S  ound  With the closing of one year and the incoming of a new year it is custSm-  avy for business institutions and individuals to take stock of their present  position and ascertain whether progress has been recorded, whether assets or  liabilities have increased, and, generally, whether their position is stronger or  weaker than at the beginning of the twelve-month period. It is not only  natural that this stocktaking should be done, but it is eminently wise. But  it: it is to be of full value, it must be searchinig in character ar.d absolutely  honest.     No camouflage should be tolerated.  I������ last week's article in this column/a forward look was attempted and J sight,  ihe conclusion reached that prospects .in Canada were bright tor improvement I     It  U.S. fleet To Visit Australia  May Have Effect On British Shipbuilding is. Opinion  The news that practically the whole  of the United States scouting cruiser  squadron,-consisting entirely ol" ships  of the new 7,700-ton type, is going to  visit Australia early in the new year,  may have more.effect on British shipbuilding  than  appears  likely  at  first  will    be remembered,  however,  during l������*g,5, providing the people of Canada displayed continued confidence in  ihemselves and the resources of their country,-and threw themselves with unremitting energy into the task ol" developing those resources for their own  use and to supply foreign markets. Later reports from all quarters serve to  strengthen this view.  In order, however, to obtain a true conception of presen-day conditions,  it is necessary to look back over a longer period than one year. Just six  years have elapsed since the World War ended, and the titanic conflict which  turned the world upside down for nearly five years ended, in victory for the  ^Allies. During those years of tremendous destruction of life and property  the pendulum swung to. the extreme in one direction. During the last six  years-it has swung to the extreme in the other direction, as was inevitable..  It is now gradually getting back to normal. ' : y ':   .-.'.-  When one stops to consider the world situation at the close of 1918 with  millions of men still under arms, to be transported to "their homes, demobilized and absorbed into the occupations of civilian life; with the world's whole  industrial organization to be re-converted from the business of war to the arts  and sciences of peace; with inflated values for commodities of all kinds,to be  restored to normal levels; with all the destruction of war to be made good, and.  all the aftermath of war to be cleaned up, it is'little short of. marvellous; that'  so much has been accomplished and conditions are as satisfactory" as they  now are, six years later. .-"  It coUld not be otherwise than that there should be periods of discouragement and depression, unemployment and hard times, with their accompaniment of distress, suffering and loss during this time of reconstruction and  readjustment. But the marvel is not that full recovery lias not been more  quLckly achieved, but that so much has been accomplished,.without greater unrest, more prolonged depression, and more severe losses.  Instead of the people of Canada feeling discouraged and despondent be  cause of conditions as they exist today, they should rather be encouraged and {  profoundly thankful, and filled with  confidence for the future  solidly based  on the really wonderful recovery of the past few years. .  These years of adversity, trying and difficult as they have been, have not  been without value. In the long run those who have displayed courage and  tenacity, fought their economic battles and hung grimly on, will reap their  reward, and Canada will be the better lor the struggle through which it has,  and still is, passing. _ .   *''  Recent years have proven that these Western Provinces are capable of  producing great crops. Some districts may be adversely affected one year;  and othr districts in other years. But the country as a whole is sound and  capable of producing enormous wealth, and with a resumption of normal world  conditions���������and this normalcy becomes more evident with each passing year���������  there is no cause for pessimism nor doubt as to the future. *  Methods and'-conditions are, and must, constantly be changing, and our  people must accept and meet these. For example, _not so" many years ago  Western Canada was a butter importing country^ today it exports millions of  pounds of butter annually. Western Canada used to import turkeys for  Thanksgiving and Christmas; now it exports them by the carload to "Eastern  and United States markets. _ " .  Immigration, which came to a stop during the war and was halted for  some years by after-war conditions, is rapidly rising, and with the stringent  ���������quota" restirctions now imposed by the United States, the tide is turning towards this Dominion, so that we may expect an ever-increasign influx of new  population and new wealth.    .. '     v "  Instead of talking hard times and depression,. Canadians at the opening  of the New Year should, after taking a backward glance, turn their faces for-  - ward with hope and confidence.

The    number    is  growing, but there  are  still too. few  j with any appreciation of the pleasures  of the winter season in Canada.  In the past Canada has been content **-  to   disregard   the   violent   misconceptions   which  have    widely    prev-^led  about her  winter  and plunged  recklessly into hibernal gaiety without a  care that other'peoples were -ignorant  of her pleasures.      Of late years, however,    there-   has .been a pronounced  movement to make the Canadian win-/  tec-.kno-wn as it really Ss and further  to bring people* from" other lands to  share in the joys of the season.

The Messenger  Peter  Blood, bachelor  of  medicine  and" several-  other    things    besides,  imoked a pipe and tended the geraniums boxed on the sill of his window-  above   Water    "Lane    in the town of  Bridgewatrr.      Mr.  Blood's  attention  was divided between his task and the  stream    of    humanity in the narrow  street below;  a stream which poured  for the second time that day towards.  Castle Field, where earlier in the afternoon  Ferguson,   the   Duke's   chaplain, had preached a sermon containing more treason than divinity.  These straggling, excTted . groups  were mainly composed of -men with  erreen  boughs  in  their  hats   and  the   over  most ludic.ous'of w*eapohs'; in    their   hands.      ^ome, it is true, shouldered  - fowling pieces, and here and there a  : sword  was  brandished;   but more  of  : them were armed with clubs, and most  of them trailed  the  mammoth  pikes  fashioned  out  of scythes,  as   formidable to the eye as they were clumsy  to  the  hand.      There were  weavers,  brewers,   carpenters,  smiths,   masons,  bricklayers,  cobblers, and representatives of every other of the trades of  take service with the Dutch, then at  war with France; and a predilection  for the sea-made him elect that this  service should be upon that element.  He had the advantage ot a commission  tinder the famous de Ruyter, and  fought in the Mediterranean engagement in which that great Dutch admiral lost his life.  After    the    Peace of Nimegueh his  movements    are    obscure.      But 7 we  know that lie  spent    two    years    In  a  Spanish-prison, though we doy not J  know how he contrived to get there.  It may be due to this that upon his  release he took his swbjd to France,  and  saw'service -with  the French in  their warring upon the Spanish Netherlands.      Having    reached,    at    last,  the age of thirty-two, his appetite foi*  adventure surfeited, his health having  grown  indifferent  as  the  result  of a  neglected   wound, he   Was    suddenly-  overwhelmed  *6y  homesickness.

Much of the original stonework remains; in the walls, but it is  cross to Irelanu.  from Nante: with intent to i for   the  grandeur  of  the  great  open  ing driven by stress of weather into  Bridge water Bay, and Blood's health  having grown worse during the voyage, he-decided to go ashore there, additionally urged to it by the fact that  it was his mother's native soil.  Thus in January of-that year, 1685,  he had come to Bridgewater, possessor of a fortune that was approximately the same as that with which he had  originally set out from Dublin eleven  years ago. ���������**-  Because he liked the place, in which  peace among these imurovised men of   bis health was rapidly restored to him,  " ��������� ���������        and because he conceived that he-had  war. Bridgewater. like Taunton, has  yielded so generously of its manhood  to the service of the bastard Duke that  passed through adventures enough for  a man's lifetime, he determined to settle there, and take up at last the pro-  its chief architectural and historical  interest. This roof was completed  under the instructions of Richard.-II.  in 1399. \  . In the-whole of the original 'structure, no metal bolt was used, the jointing being secured by oak pins. The  beams themselves being from 40 to 60  feet.in length, composed of three sections and weighing up to 4 tons, were  taken from_oalt trees which must have  been planted in the eighth century."'
