Having delivered himself of his decoction of fact and falsehood, and  thereby added one more to the exploits or Peter Blood, he enquired  where ' the Captain might be found.

His friends at Government  House, bewildered at this change in  him, sought to reclaim him.

Sometimes Blood asked himself whs-  he had come back to Tortuga at all.  He was degenerating visibly, under  the* eyes of all.

The  pills seemed to give me a keen appetite and I gained in weight and soon  was able not only    to    do    my    work  about the house, but    to    help    wit h  many chores on the farm.      For this  reason I would advise women, particularly those* on the prairie or the farm.  to keep a supply of these pills always  on hand.      One trial will convince you  of their worth.

Perhaps the   information at Mr. Saanuelsora's  disposal  may have justified his conclusions,  but I always like to  get down to  the real facts which form the basis  of a conta-oveiw and  these may be  interesting alike to those who share  or do not   share   Mr. Saumelson's  views.    At any rate the public may  have a   chance   to   study   details  before  blaming  sinner chamber.  The  legislation  in question was  introduced in   the federal  house at  the   request   of   Mr. Manson.,   his  alleged   reason for the passage of  such legislation  being   that   he   is  desirous of doing away with export  bonded warehouses,   ss   being   the  principal Bource of bootlegging both  in the United States   and   British  Columbia.

The   provincial  authorities   had   for    three   years  consented and were even then con-  tinning to consent to the issuing of  these licenses, and to   the contiuu  ance of those  already in existence.

In 1916 the customs department  issued notice to all   collectors   that  by order of the minister of customs  permission for  the: ei.fcry *>ff intoxi  eating beverages in custom*"- bonded  warehouses was   withdrawn   from  December 31 et* 1916, in all provinces and districts  of Canada where  the sale   of   liquor   is   prohibited  nnder provincial   law,   unless   the  importer obtains   and   delivers   to  the collector tlie written consent of  the proper   provincial   authorities.  Prior to 1920 none of the  customs  bonded warehouses now licensed in  B.C. were in existence.  In Commons Hansard, 1923. page  1260,1 note that Mr. Clark asks  the minister of customs how many  such license*"- have been issued since  the commencement of 1920, the  names of licence* and dates of issue,  location of such warehouwes and i������-  The question was   snswejred   by  I  Senator Danduarnad, the  govern  ment leader   in   the   senate,   who  naturally  voices the views  off the  government,   who   replied,       xhe  polioy of the  government requires  unconditional consent of provincial  authorities   before granting  a customs N.arehouse license   for storage  of intoxicating liquors   in bond, or  before granting a   license   for   as|  excise bonded   warehouse for  stpr  age of intoxicating   liqupra   in   all  provinces where the sale of liquor is  prohibited   under   provincial   law.  Notwithstanding   Senator Dan  dorand'a   reply   an    opinion   was  obtained from   the   department of  justice directly to the contrary and  it is upon the strength   of this Jast  opinion that Mr. Manson takes the  stand that without  the  legislation 1  asked for he cannot abolish the export warehouses.  The gist  of  the  opinion is that  owing to the   wording of  the Customs Aot, not the Canada Temper  ance Act, which was the one sought  to be   amended,   the   government  cannot refuse to grant a license for  an export warehouse,   wbiph ware  house may contain liquor.  **T"l.������������aa% ir, nn     ntt_i-rvpil-t~.mil    that til������  Durable quality and reasonable pric  :; V-s i  iLE COMPANY  LIMITED  PRINTED-l BUTTER' W.^||P^! a$ TTie^^ R  it the policy of the  government in i ---.- ,, .

'       ... ' -..-....-    a  There has been oceans of talk.      Weary weeks were spent threshing'-over  old straw in the debate on the Speech from the Throne,"1 and still .more weary  weeks in  unproductive  talk  during  the  debate-on. the Budget.      Millions "of  dollars have been voted Cor various servic.es.      But, after all, what has really j  been accomplished?  Apart from tliese things, much time has been .devoted to discussion of the  Canadian National Railway and its management.      Admittedly this is a subject deserving of close attention and it is -rifelit. and proper that Parliament  should do everything in Its power to help place the system on a sound footing ]  and co-operate with the Government and Tit il way management in strengthen-..*  ing its position and hastening the day when, instead ot7 constituting a heavy;  drain on the finances of the country, the C.N.It. will be revenue-producing and  ������ source of financial strength to Canada.  But the general trend of the discussions at Ottawa do not appear to have'  tbat end in view.     Rather there has been petty and carping criticism of minor  cleiails which should find no expression on the floors of Parliament and which  il should be beneath the dignity of that body to even notice.  One of the best acts standing to the*"credit of the-preSent. Government was.  tlie securing of the services of Sir "Henry Thornton as-president-of the Canadian National. He has thrown -himself with abounding energy into the task  ol consolidating and making a really efficient system out of the separate;  railway units which were turned over to ;him. lie has created a splendid"  esprit de corps among the large staff of employeesyhas built up the system:  in every respect, and today the C.N.R. is an effective and vigorous'competitor.:'  ol" the C.P.R. '''���������'���������' '" '  '.

The  C.P.R. can spend a million or more in the construction of a hotel at Lake  Louise* in.order to cater to and-capture tourist traffic, and nobody objects but,  on the contrary, applauds their enterprise. Likewise th'e. C.P.R. is not criticised when it indulges in extensive advertising campaigns to get business..  But Sir Henry Thornton anil the C.N.R. are the targets of attack in Parliament  because some money is expended to develop the Attractions of the National  Park at Jasper Park and because it, too, advertises exte-nsively in order to develop and increase tourist traffic over C.N.R. lines. Even Sir Henry's private:  car and the room be occupies in a hotel are objects of attack.  Right at the outset when, taking over the management of the Canadian  National, Sir Henry Thornton voiced a warning against party politics being  allowed to interfere in the management of the road, and he has repeated that  warning on several occasions since, pointing out in the plainest language possible that the C.N.R. can be made a success and an asset rather than a liability to. the Dominion, but only if strict business principle's are allowed to  prevail in its direction and management and party politics are wholly��������� eliminated;- ^ ,  Sir Henry Thornton is a big man and an outstandingly successful railway  executive. He so proved himself in the United States, again in England, and  still later during the war in Fiance. Canada was fortunate in obtaining his  services at a time when other big'railway men thought the C.N.R, would  prove ilie grav������" of. any man's reputation. if Sir Henry is capable of handling hi.s job. h������.* should be left to do it and should be given the freest pos-  fc'tble hand In working out and carrying his policies into effect.  Thus-* members at Ottawa who are engaged ih this guerilla warfare  ngainsr ilu* present management of the C.N.R. are the real obstacles to the  success of public ownership in Canada. Th-ir criticisms are not in any sense  con-An-ueiH *\ but wholly destructive.      They should be squelched.

In Re-arty  every district also, where clubs were  organized last year, the effect is now  to be seen in the production general ly  Of a better class of bacon hog, due to  the importation in many instances of  pure-bred "bacon type sires for community use.  Organizing of boys' and girls' clubs  is reported from several points along  the Canadian National lines, fn addition to those which last year had entries at the various; exhibitions inr-the  western provinces, and, as a result,  it is anticipated that "the contests for  the right to lepresent the provinces at'  the Royal Show in Toronto - this year  ���������wiii be even more keenly fought out  than were those of 1924.  Not only among the youngsters, but  also among the older people, is the ef-.  fqcCoJ; the, swine club movement being noticed. In the case of two Manitoba points; where swine* clubs were  organized in 1922, marketings of .hogs  increased from $5,325 iti 1921 to $31.-  300 in 15)24 at tlie first-point, and from  $l;350 In 1921 to $2-U>:37 in 1924 at the  second point of! shipment. Apart from  the increase in nurnbcvrs, the most  noticeable change was in the quality  of the hogs. Whereas the color and  types were ve v mixed prior to the  foi'm'ation bf the clubs, the shipments  in 1924 were practically all one color  and the hogs, were of very much superior quali'y.  -   Clubs are organized under the joint  direction of the Dominion and provincial  departments of agrieullurev with  .the following objects: >-  To    stimulate   -greater    interest - in.  swine raising amongst boys and girls  and to develop a morn general knowledge of swine marketing methods in  Canada.
