Any Vessel ___5������ku;  Continued rapid progress is being:  made on the new giant Cunard liner  of 73,000 tons which is at present  under construe tion in the yards of  John Brown & Company, at Cylde-  bank> Scotland.  Details |iave reached the local offices of tlie Cunard Line with reference to a number of the plans for  the interior decoration of the liner  ���������which up to the present Ss without a  name.  Mr. Eric Re ford, vice-president of  the Robert Reford Company, and  general manager of the Cunard Line  in Canada, in discussing some of the  features which will be part of the  new Cunarder, mentioned the fact  thai she will have an exceedingly  beautiful church and that It will be  decorated in accordance with the best  traditions of English ecclesiastical  art.  "The liner itself will have eight  decks above the water line," he said,  "and between the aft and the centre  funnels will be built the largest dining room ever to be placed in an  ocean liner."  "The boat deck itself will be 70  feet above the water line, and the  tops of the funnels, which are forty  feet across, about one hundred and  thirty feet above. The boat deck is  to be about 650 feet long and the  promenade deck 720 feet long."  "I understand that the interior  decoration of the Cunarder has not  been settled, but I am sure that it  will be the most elaborate that has  ever been known on an.ocean liner."  "It is fully expected that the construction of the hull will be well advanced by the spring," said Mr( Re-  ford in closing.  "So you -decided to quit being an  atheist?"

"I'm afraid," said Gay,, with a quiet  Httle laugh, "that I like spoiling  you!"  Her eyes met his, and in one glance  swept away the seeds of Angela  Haliiday's careful sowing.

CHAPTER XIH  The summer was waning, and. after  three,weeks at "The Bird's Nest,"  where he regained the last of his  diminished strength, Nick was back  in the cage.  "Is seems good to have him there,"  said John Maxwell to Mary, at the  close of Nick's first day, "and I believe the boy is happy to be back,  possibly because we were all so glad  "I met Gay down town, too," said  Mary Maxwell. "She looked rested,  and pretty, and wore a smart little  new gown that was tremendously becoming. I was surprised to see it.  Their bills must have been overwhelming these last few months."  "Possibly the dress was a gift."  "From whom? There's not a soul  who'd think of such a thing. The  truth is, Johnny, I've sometimes longed to give her a gown or two myself,  but I thought she might not like it.  She and Janey were always so snuch  together that I've hated to think that  Gay was going without the pretties  a young girl wants���������and she's still a  girl, you know, in spite of her little  family."  "I think you might give her something now and then, Mary. Gay's not  the sort who would take offense.  Can't you pretend you got them for  yourself and they were���������well���������too  small or something ?k"  Mary Maxwell glanced down at her  generous porportions, and smiled at  h__. husband's naive suggestion.  "I fear, my dear, that Gay would  see through a subterfuge like that.  Johnny, do you suppose old Mr. Bart-.  le'tt gives her anything?"  "It wouldn't surprise me; though  clothes are the last item he would  notice."  "I don't know. Those days he was  here with the babies he noticed everything. He's a wonderful old man. I  wish be'd give Gay an allowance."  "Well, I don't." John Maxwell  spoke with decision." "There's nothing better for a man than having- to  scratch gravel to provide for his wife  and children. In my opinion Nick's  marriage has been tbe making of  him. Not that he wasn't all right before; but he needed ballast, and Gay  provides that in just the. right  amount. I shouldn't want Simeon  Bartlett to do too much for them."  "Well," sighed Mary, with a  thought for the days when she ber-  self had longed for the unattainable,  "I suppose you're right, and possibly  Mr. Bartlett agrees with you. I feel  sure, there's nothing he wouldn't do  for them if he thought best."  This was true. It sometimes tore  Simeon's heart "not to lift all Gay's  HiittiiClal burdens. Ciily iiia shrew u  good sense kept him from doing it.  He had, however, taken care of the  bills incurred by Nick's illness, saying when Gay protested, "It's only a  loan, dearie. Better owe me than the  doctor. He needs it mdre?n I do; and  Nick can pay me back any time lt  comes bandy."

Mrs. Grizzly is a bad one to meet at any  time, but when she has a.cub -with her,  she Is: not the company one would choose  to meet in a lonely spot.  Meanwhile   the   old   bear   was   getting  nervous ��������� sort   of  srn_*.sc_     _,fOu__cl     a.  bit ��������� and      then ���������  "WEi-/   She   &.iid    her  cub   started   down  ot look us  over.

We did no such thing  -���������we cut and ran peii melL for the  plane. It waa less than a hundred feet  away but it seemed as if we would  never make it. And all the time the  bear and her cub were ambling briskly toward us. I reached for the pot-  cock of the gas tank, turned It on and  held my helmet under it until It was  full and soused it over the wings and  body of the 'plane. Time and time I  emptied the helmet of gasoline on the  plane ��������� and every time I looked up,  there were those bears coming closer  and closer.  Aa I threw the last helmet of gasoline over the 'plane, I looked up, and  there ��������� just across the "plane ��������� were  the bears.      Believe me. girls and "boys.  those bears -weren't sight-seeing   thev  were out hunting trouble ��������� and that  partacular trouble was us.

Suddenly the flame flared up.  Scottae and I started to run ��������� to get  away from those bears and the 'plane.  Which I knew would snortly explode.  we had hardly gone a hundred feet,  when Scottie got between my legs.  and down we went in a heap. Scarcely  had we struck the ground when the  flames reached the gas tank, and  WHAM!���������it blew up. For a minute  the air was full of -burning debris.  What a sight!.  ��������� It seemed like as if those bears hadn't  started to run until they heard all that  noise. Then it was a case of every bear  for himself and never mind your neighbor. They fairly flew. The cub's lc<rs  were so close together that they looked  liKe one bi������* bear.  Meanwhife the wreck of the old 'plane  w a.' s - burning  brightly. Scottie  and I hustled  over to the edge  of the wood and  gathered up the  driest wood we  could find.   .  All night long  we kept the Are  burning brightly, for a good  camp fire is  mighty friendly and comfortable on a bleak, chilly  z.iigltt -when you are out hi the open; but  we didn't hear of those bears from the  time the gas tank exploded. Each time  the red. blaze began to die down, Scottie  would whine and pull vmsjjj coat until I  awakened and put on some mora wood.  Probably- Scottie thought he saw  more bears in the black shadows.  CertaEnly he kept watch during the  arst part of the night. Later on he  must have fallen into a deep sleep, for  something began to take place which  might easily have ended all our adventures then and there.  Over at the edge of the clearing a  little crimson tongue of flame gradually  cur_a_<������ up and grew larger���������crept forward and spread more little curling  names like_an advancing army of redcoats. JSut we were sound asieep and saw  nothing of it. Meanwhile the dangerous little flames grew larger and spread  back of us through the woods, threatening to ring us around with a wall of fire.

The Presbytery further expresses disapproval on ethical  and social grounds against the  spending of almost $20,000,000  for liquor beverages during the  past year. We also protest indignantly against our Province  becoming a manufacturing centre  for aicohalic beverages. As a  first step towards reducing consumption, we would urge the  government to close all beer  saloons at the present time.  R. E. CRIBB.  Local Member Speaks  VICTORIA, March 18.-The  government has leaned too far  backwards in its desire for economy, in the opinion of Colonel  Fred Lister, Conservative, Creston. He told the Legislature  Monday that this year was a  poor time to cut public works to  a new minimum when numerous  unemployed would require jobs.  "In these times, with other industries depressed, we must look  more and more to the tourist  business/' Colonel Lister said.  "We can not get tourists without  roads. One of the best things we  can do is to build roads.

This would  have beers a good year to carry on  public works quite extensively.3'  Colonel Lister regretted particularly the decision not to complete this year the new trans-  provincial highway route along  Kootenay Lake, needed because  of the impending abandonment of  the old steamboat services.  Instead, he said, the government  intended to carry cars across the  lake on a boat rented from the  Canadian Pacific Railway until  the new road route could be completed later. The decision not to  finish the work this year he regarded as short-sighted as the  road was an integral part of the  transprovincial highway and  would encourage tourists to  journey from the eastern interior  to the coast���������Province.

Soot, lamp black,  and pencil leads are all forms of carbon���������and so is the diamond. The  carbon atom possesses one remarkable quality. It enables other atoms  to combine into huge groups or families from which all kinds of substances are made.

If it were not  for carbon, life could never have existed upon this or any other world.  All kinds of living things-���������fish, flesh,  fruit, and fowl���������owe their existence  to the carbon atom. No one knows  why this should be so, for the carbon  atom differs from others only in having one electron more or less than  they. But it is quite certain that it  is the foundation-stone of all Life.  em  lit  Seeding time throughout Western. Canada is at hand, and. as the farmer  overhauls his ploughs, harrows, and seeders in preparation for the Spring  work, he naturally is looking fox-ward and planning just what he ought to do  in the light, not only of his own individual circumstances, but -of prevailing  world conditions and prospects.  The prairie farmer is an optimist, as a rule. Indeed, to succeed, he can  .hardly be anything else. Unquestionably, however, there is less optimism  prevalent as the season of 1931 opens than is usually the case throughout  this western country, and many farmers are tn somewhat of a quandary in  reaching a decision just what is best for them, to do this year.  Most of them have been growers of wheat. It has been their major  a.rtle_e of production. Upon it they have depended for success. Sut for the  past year and a half wheat has been a drug on the world's markets. The  selling price has fallen well below the cost of production. There is a large  surplus stock on hand in various countries. What, then, is the prospect for  disposing of a new crop of wheat at profitable prices in 1931 ? Yet the vast  majority of prairie farmers cannot turn from wheat growing to something  else in one short season, even if it was advisable to do so.  Under these circumstances should the farmer proceed to seed the average number of acres he has been seeding in years past? If he does and all.the  great wheat growing countries, as well as Canada, harvest an average normal crop, "will the price obtainable for the wheat yield him a profit, or will it  again fail to cover the costs of production and leave him in a worse position  than if he had grown no wheat?  Inasmuch as the farmer cannot rest from growing something..���������his livelihood depends on his production.���������and as the prevailing prices for coarse  grains also are less than production costs, the farmer is confronted ���������with a  real problem, and one he must decide for himself. Another crop failure, or  partial failure, would be a disaster. Equally, a large crop throughout the  world would mean loss to the producer. It is a gamT-le either -way. If the  Western Canada wheat grower could be assured of a good crop, while helow  average crops were the rule in other great wheat producing countries, his  course would be clear.    But as to this no man can foretell.  Possibly many farmers will consider it wise to merely seed sufficient  acreage to provide him with a livelihood if all goes well, and devote his time  to the eradication of weeds and the more thorough cultivation of his land in  preparation for future operations, coupled with the plantmg and expert care  of a garden sufficient to supply the needs of his own family during the summer and next winter.  A goodly number of farmers will have to look to the Government to supply them with seed; many others will not be able this year to buy registered  seed, but whatever acreage is sown, be it large or small, should be seeded  with good, clean seed, the bsst it is possible to obtain under the circumstances.  Generally speaking-, too, farmers wiil have to keep down all overhead  expenses. Last year's plough, harrow and seed drill will have to do service  another year. Therefore, care'ul overhauling of all present equipment will  .undoubtedly be one of the outstanding activities on farms at this time. _ The  farmer and his family may have to work even harder than usual and possi-  ��������� bly get along with one hired man where formerly two were employed, even  though this may operate to continue or temporarily intensify the existing  unemployment.  In a word, everybody must face and adapt themselves to the hard, unpleasant facts of the existing situation. Present problems cannot be solved  and difficulties removed solely by Governmental action, the extension of credits, or any other external agency or aclton. These may help, but at best,  they are only temporary palliatives. Each individual must, in the final  analysis, face his own problem, decide upon his .own line of operations this  Spring, work out the basic needs essential to his own salvation.  This article is not a preachment at farmers; it is not an attempt to  advise farmers, for if there is one individual for whom the writer has a contempt it is the arm-chair critic, the arm-chair farmer. The existing situation, as the writer sees it, Io that each and every man must exercise his own  best judgement in the light of his own particular circumstances, and proceecj  With all the ability and energy of which he is capable to worlc out tho solution of his own problems, and thereby make his contribution towards finding  a solution for the problems of all others and the country aa a whole.  wWsnjrm.

Gideon    D.  Robertson, Minister of Labor, told the  senate in a reference to Great Britain's unemployed insurance scheme.  Along with many other people,  both In Canada and Great Britain,  Senator Robertson had been pleased  when the scheme first was put in  operation, lie said. I*. soon was evident, however, that it was becoming'  a burden on the country as a whole  and had not removed the basic causes  of widespread unemployment. ,, Canada, he suggested, might profit by  the experiment.  As head of the department that  administered the Dominion's share  in the joint " unemployment "relief  scheme with the" provinces and the  municipalities,. Senator Robertson  said he had received complete cooperation, f rom al! sides.  The scheme had resulted in  569,000,000 being subscribed by the  Dominion, the provinces, municipalities and the two large railway  companies,- tc provide work and  relief.  "The situation has been substantially improved," the minister of  'labor declared. Not only had the  government provided $20,000,000 toward creating employment opportunities, but it had raised the tariff to  stimulate Canadian industry and had  curtailed immigration to the country.  "I am convinced," Senator Robertson proceeded, "that if parliament had not met in September,  and had not taken those steps to  relieve distress, there would have  arisen in Canada a condition very  difficult to control. It is the desire  of this government to give attention to a permanent solution. No  one expected unemployment to be  ended in a day or a week, but this  government is' doing allYwithin j������a  power to reueye^eoa^ioss?'*.;-���������   ^,Y;.  Hon. Robert Forke suggested the  Incorporation, of a scheme whereby  farmers' debts in Western Canada  would be amortized.,-over a 10-year  period. In his 49 years' residence  in the west, he had never seen conditions so acute and he believed  something would have to be done to  relieve the financial burdens of the  farmers if they were to continue producing. For the first time, Mr.  Forke had seen indications in the  west of a lack of confidence in tha  future.  Senator Forke believed too much  money had been loaned by the  banks at too high a rate of interest  and that mortgage companies were  threatened with a loss of part of  their equity in lands. A 10-year  amortization scheme might, be the  means of solving this angle of the  west's predicament.  Wheat growing was the only possible crop In some portions of the  west, the former minister of immigration proceeded. He asked if  times were hard in 1930, with wheat  at an average price of 92 cents a  bushel, what would they be in 1931  with 60-cent wheat? Senator Forke  believed in the small-unit farm with  diversified production, but ho did  not think this would materialize to  any extent for somo years.  Secession sentiment was not increasing in popularity in tho west,  Senator Forke declared. Expressions made in tlie past few months  would not be taken seriously by  other parts of thc country, he said,  but at the same time thoy could not  be dismissed without consideration  bocauso thoy emanated from distress  unci din content,  No Cattle For Export  If Canadians Consume Same Amount  Of Meat As Last Year  Winnipeg, Man.���������Canada will have  no exportable surplus of cattle this  year if Canadians consume the same  amount of meat as last year, declared  Roderick MacLeay, rancher of High  River, Alberta. Mr. MacLeay arrived  from Ottawa, where he conferred  with Hon. Robert Weir, Minister of  Agriculture.  Ik Ottawa Mr. MscLefiy; with  George Ross, of Lethbridge, Alberta,  represented tbe recently-formed  council of Western Beef Producers  at a conference with the Minister of  Agriculture regarding cattle export  situation,  Mr. MacLeay emphasized that the  Canadian cattle industry was on a  "decidedly home consumption basis."  He deprecates reports of a "glut" on  the export market for Canadian cattle." He pointed out that on January  1, 1931, there, were 11,546,000 pounds  of dressed beef in cold storage in  the Dominion,-as compared with 23,-  00y,000 on the- same date last year.  The five-year average, he added, was  22,570,207 pounds.

London, Ont.���������Dr. Wray Lloyd,  graduate of University of Western  Ontario, and one of the most promising of the young scientists working  under the wing of the Rockefeller  Institute, is facing death, for the  -second time as a result of experiments.  Dr. Lloyd contracted yellow fever  from monkeys with which he was  working in his New York laboratory.  His condition is not regarded as  critical, but doctors point out that the  tropical disease Is always dangerous.  In 1928, while studying the heart  tario Medical school, Dr. Lloyd created quite a sensation when he announced that by using calcium chloride as a stimulant he had caused  hearts taken from dead rabbits to  resume beating.  Desiring to find out the effect of  the drug on the human heart, Dr.  Lloyd had his assistant inject a small  quantity into his arin. The young  doctor became suddenly ���������unconscious  and death was close before he revived.
