A majorits" of the constituencies rejected the policies of the King Government, but, -while disapproval of tlio Government and its policies was thus  recorded, neither did a majority of the constituencies express approval and  extend support to the leadership and policies of the Conservative Opposition.  In an even more emphatic way the country as a whole rejected the Progressive Party. "��������� " *  A conditiop of "stalemate," a deadlock, ensues,'wliich. apparently St will  require another appeal to the electorate to break. " In other words,'for'the  time being at least, there must be a "marking "of time,"-a period of drifting,  which is an extremely-bad thing for any country, and especially so for a young  country like Canada with a number of serious nat-iocaT^problems demanding  vigorous and constructive action;  Comment by "the man in the street" is, of course, largely colored by his  party affiliations but all too frequently an amazing ignorance of the constitutional .position of affairs is disclosed. Without in any way touching on the  party aspect of the situation, it may be well "to clearly state, the constitutional  position.      . . -.../!-<-.  If the Government of the day is clearly defeated in a general election, the  practice both in.Great Britain and in Canada is for that Government to immediately resign, and for the Premier to advise the Governor-General to call  on the leader of the victorious Opposition party to form a new Government.  But a defeated Government is not obliged to take this action; it can continue  in office and meet Parliament and is not obliged to resign until it suffers defeat in the House of Commons. That is to say, "the tenure of office b>y any  Government rests with the House of .Commons. "  But, if following a decisive defeat in a general election, the Government  did. not resign the Governor-General can take cognizance of that defeat and  take responsibility for dismissing his Ministers and calling upon the Leader of  the Opposition to form a new Administration. In this event the new Ministry  must obtain a vote of confidence from Parliament otherwise the usefulness  of the Governor-General is past.  However, in the election last month, while the Government failed to secure  a majority, so, too, did the Opposition. Consequently the Government would  be justified in continuing in office and asking Parliament for a vote of confidence., relying on a combination of Liberals and Progressives to reach such a  vote. If, on the other hand, the Government resigns and Mr. Meighen is  asked to form a Government, it is quite evident he could not command a  majority in the House of Commons as at present constituted, and another election would become immediately imperative. -  Mr. King is, however, confronted with a secontf. problem.      If he decides  to await a-verdict from Parliament, he must in view of his personal jdefeat and  the defeat of one-half of his ministers, reconstruct his cabinet.   ; This involves  ^a series of by-elections.      In the present indecisive state of public opinion it  is doubtful if these ministers could be elected.  Furthermore, for the King Government,; to continue in office any length  of time under present conditions would be to perpetuate the unsatlsfactory  situation in the House of Commons and Government which Mr. King himself  in advising dissolution of Parliament, urged as one outstanding reason why  an election at this time was necessary, nanieiy, to provide a Government with  a clear mandate and a working majority. "Mr. King further announced that  ii" tlie election, did not result in providing such a clear working majority he  would again appeal to the country.  Disturbing and expensive though it would be, the logic of the situation  points to another '-lection without loss of time. Whether Mr. King remains  in office, re-constructs his cabinet, and calls that election, or whether he  resigns anil Mr. Meighen-forms a cabinet and then goes to the country, is a  matter for Mr. King land his advisers to decide, and possibly before this  article ls published a decision will have been made. But as in any event it Is  quite evident that the holding of another election cannot long be deferred���������and  in the intt-re.s t.s of strong, stable government in Canada should r.ot be deferred  ���������then th" sooner it id held and the whole, situation-clarified, the better for  Canada.  11 zjxjj���������.,"���������-���������,r.z.mJ.j -.���������,'���������..��������� * .

Secretary Wright, of. the Passenger  .Agents* Association, who was with a  party that recently toured Canada, asserted that sometimes the farm hands  would not remain at work at the conclusion of the " harvest in Western  Canada when they could, do so. but instead of this they spent their money  and got into financial difficulties. .

Then when the system becomes rundown from any cause, the disease again  ���������gets the upper hand and it all has to  "be done over.        ;v  v   S uff erers     from _ rheuma tisrh    who  have found their condition unrelieved  or actually growing worse while using  other remedies, would do well to try  Dr. Williams* "Pink pills.      The tonic  treatment   with   this     medicine  y has  proved in thousands of cases ihat it  builds up the" blood to a point that enables    it    te':-   cast out the rheumatic  poisons through the regular channels,  the bowels, kidneys    and - the    skin.  When; this is done rheumatism is banished, and as long as the blood is kept  pure and rich tho patient will be immune   .from   attack.      This    Is    fully  proved by the case    of    Mr.    Samuel  Zinck,   Uppar  Blandford,    N.S.,    who  says:���������"For a long time I was a great  sufferer from rheumatism whieh settled in my hip and down by leg to the,  knee.     At times the pain was so great  that I could not walk.      I tried liniments and medicines but without getting more than-mere temporary relief.  Then one day a friend called who said  that he had heen afflicted with this  trouble   Which   was   banished by Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, and urged me to  try them.     I did as advised and afiter  using a few boxes there was no doubt  they were helping me.    . Not only (was  the rheumatism disappearing,Jbut iny  general health was improving," I continued the pills until I had taken about  a dozen boxes when erery trace of the  trouble had  disappeared, and I have  not felt a twinge of it since.      I may  add that my wife used these pills for  a   run-down   condition   with   equally  good results."  You can got these; pills from any  medicine-dealers or by.mail at 50 cents  a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co-, Brockville.

By  weighing tliey milk these animals can  of (course be identified and eradicated.

Records For Mineral . Production  Will Be Eclipsed in 1925  All yearly records for mineral production both from ths standpoint of  quantity and value, will be eclipsed in  1925, according lo a summary of mining operations - for the first eight  months of the present year, issued by  the BjCD. minister of mines. It is estimated that the monetary value of  the mineral .'production for the -first  eight months of 1925~is approximately $41,000,000- - This indicates that  the total final production for the year  1925 will approximate at least $60,-  000,000, an Increase of ?11^295,396, or  23.10 per cent, over the total for 1924,  hitherto a record for the province.  three provinces occupied as farm land.  ���������Undoubtedly the best of the land open  for -boniesteading has been taken iip. .  No .less than 72,131,000^~acres have  been granted to settlers and others in*  the form of homesteads, land sales,  bounty graats," half-breed serip, etc.  Grants to.railways and to the Hudson's  Bay Company have absorbed 38,432,-  000 acres of the surveyed area, while  27:,422,000 acres have been set aside  for forestry purposes. Indian reserves,  school lands, parks, grazing leases,  water-covered land, and road allowances aecount for 35,954,000 acres,  leaving a total of 25.957.000 acres not  allocated at the commencement of 1he  present year.  Studied solely with an eye to the  surveyed lands still held by tho  crown, the western land situation  might not look very' promising for further large settlement. There are,  however, two other important factors  to take into account.  First, the ^surveyed area can -and,  In time^ will be, somewhat enlarged  when the railway network is extended  into areas which are stilL too rehiate  to warrant surveys, let alone settlement.  Secondly,   there   are   the ' privately-  owned" unoccupied lands    within    the  present   surveyed   areas���������that   is,   the  lands held for sale by individuals and  | by the railways and the Hudson's^Bay  j Company.      It is estimated that there  are about 18,000^000    acres    of    such  lands.     When it is borne-in mind that  these are largely-select lands, where-  Shipping  Wheat Via  Vancouver  Shipments -ot wheat from Vancouver  during the first two months ended  September 30. 1925, were 1.157,904"  bushels, and receipts S93.330. For the  whole of last year approximately 25.-  000,000 bushels of wheat ""passed  through "this" port, and It Is anticipated that the wheat movement through  Vancouver this year will eq.ua!, if not  exceed, that oC-192-1.  3a     Lua_     oum . cf c-CI    iBuua    E^ia.j    uciu     D,v  "the public are the "marginal" lands ln  every-sense,-one can realize how  closely the future progress -of western  settlement Is tied .up not^only to public policies with respect to crown lands  but to the marketing and. occupation  of privately-owned lands. Public  lands no longer dominate the situation  with respect to western settlement.  Quite aside from the figures for the  acreage which have been surveyed ami  disposed - of in d liferent forms, rough  estimates, the best tliatvban be made  with present information,.: indicate that _  there  is a  total  of about  167,000.000  acres of land In the three prairie provinces physically suitable tor'..grazing, or  for agriculture.     The area at present  occupied as farm lands is rather less  than  90.000.000 acres.      Allowing liberally for the acreage now being used  for   grazing purposes,   still   leaves   It  amply  evident that  the   west has'a  long road io travel before Its agricultural areas j*re; anything like fully developed 7    To clIo only one more figure, it is Worthy^ of noi lee'that Dr..U.

CHAPTER   XVI.���������Continued j  It was late in August when Baree  saw the first of his kind outside of  Kazan and Gray Wolf. During the  ���������-summer Pierrot allowed his dogs to  run at large on a small island in tlie  centre of a lake two or three miles  away, and twice-a week he netted fish  for them.      On one of these trips Ne-  i  peese accompanied him and took  Baree with her. Pierrot Carried his  long caribou-gut whip. He expected  a fight. But there was none. Baree  joined the pack in tlieir^rush for fish,  and ate with them. This pleased  Pierrot   more   than   ever.  "He will make a great sledge-dog,"  he chuckled. "It is best to leave him  for a week with the -pack, ma Nepeese."  Reluctantly isepeese gave her consent. While- the dogs were still at  their fish, they .started homeward.  Their canoe had stolen well out before  Baree discovered the trick they had  played on him. Instantly he leaped  into the water and swam after them���������\  and the Willow helped him into the j  canoe. ' I  Early in September a passing Indian j  brought  Pierrot word from Bush Mc- j  Taggart.      The Factor had been very  sick.

For  ten days Gregson, the investigating  agent, had been Bush McTaggart's  guest at the post, and twice in that  time it had come into Mane's mind to  creep upon him while ho slept and kill*  him. The Factor himself paid little  attention to hor now, a fact which  would have made her happy if it had  not been for Grog-son. lie wag enraptured with the wild, sinuous beauty  of the Croc girl, and McTaggart, without jealotiHy, encouraged him.

Hey kept  it to himself, and at night, undef the  glow of his lamp, he looked at it with  thoughts 1h^t filled him with a growing resolution. There was but one  way. -The scheme had been in his  mind for w-eeks���������and the picture determined hkn. He dared not w/hisper  hiir-secret .'even.-'to���������.''.'Gregson;''������������������' But it  was the one way. It would give him  Nepeese. ^ Only-���������he must wait for the  deep snows, tlie mid-winter snows.  They buried their, tragedies deepest.  McTaggart was glad when Gregson  followed .the iliap-niaker to Norway  Houses Out of courtesy he accom-  panied him a da.y*s.-journey on his way.  When he returned to the Post, Marie  was gone. He was glad. He sent oH  a runner witli a load of presents for  her;people, and ihe message:. "Don*!  Jbeat her. Ikeep her. She is free."  --Along with the bustle and stir of the  beginning of the trapping season, McTaggart began to prepare his -vhquse  for the coming of Nepeese. He knew  what she -liked in. the way of cleanliness and a few other things. He had  the log walls painted white with the  lead and oil that were intended for his  York boats. Certain partition^ were  torn down, and new ones were built;  the Indian wife of his chie.f runner  made curtains for the windows, and  he confiscated a small phonograph  that should have gone on to Lac la  Biche. He had: no doubts, andv he  | counted the deys as they passed.-  Down on the Gray Boon, Pierrot and  NepeeSe were busy at nianj- things, so  busy that at times Pierrot's fears ol  the Factor at Lac Bain wore forgotten,  and they went out -ef the Willowls  mind entirely. It was the Red Moon,  and it thrilled with the anticipation  and excitement of the winter hunt.  Nepeese carefully dipped a .yiiiip.dred  traps in boiling : caribou-fat .mixed  with beaver-grease, while Pierrot  made fresh dead-falls ready for setting on his trails. When he was gone  more than a day from the cabin, she  was always with him.  It    was    the    Willow's voice which  Baree    had    learned    to    understand,  and   the   movement   of  her   Ups,   lier  gesture, Hie pcise of   her    body, "the,  changing'    moods      which      brought  shadow' or   sunlight  jnto    her     face.  Plb    knew    what ��������� it "meant-when-she  smiled;   he  shook  himself,  and  often  jumped about her in sympathetic rejoining, w4ien she laughed; her happiness was a part of him, a .stern word  from her was worse than a blow.Twice  Pierrot   had    struck    him, tihd. twice  Baree had sprung hack and faced him  with bared fangs ami an angry snarl,  the crest along his hack standing up  like a brush.      Had one ot the other  dogs   done   this,   Pierrot  would   havo  half killed him.      It would have been  mutiny, and the man must bo master.  But Bareo was always safe.     A touch  of the Willow's hand, a word from her  lips, and the crest slowly settled and  the snarl went out of his throat,  Pierrot waH "not at all displeased. ���������  "Dieu!      1  will never go so far as  to 1ry and whip that    out    oi'    him,-*-'  he told himself.      "He in a barbarian  ' ���������a wild h-xist���������and her slave.      For  jher ho would kill!"  '���������     So it cam*-, through Pierrot himself  '���������and without felling his reason for it  ���������that - Buret- did not-become a sledge-  dog.     He   wits  -allowed hi.*J freedom,  and  wn.s  never  lied,  like  Hie  others.  Nejieose wan  glad, but did not guess  tlio thought  that     was    In    Pierrot's  mind.

IL"your ancestors ate much salt,  the chances are ihat your couplexion  is fair. In Northern "Europe, for example, where there has always been an  unlimited supply of salt, the inhabitants are white. In China. Greenland,  Korea and Ijidia, wh������i-e salt is obtainable, but expensive, the color is yellow. On the plains of America and  the Malay Peninsula, where the lack  of good transportation makes .salt dii"-  -ficult to get, man is brown.
