Three    little  Manitoba Building Stone  Steps Should ������������ Taken to Make This  Product Known  Nationally  Superior to all other building stone  on the- continent, not excluding even  Bedford. Stone, - was tbe " unanimous  opinion of Manitoba building stone  from tho quarries at Tyndll, expressed by geologists and engineering experts from all over the Dominion gathered in Winnipeg for their annual  convention, and they urged that steps  should be-taken to make this.product  known nationally.  During .the past year .a number of  largo buildings in Eastern Canada  havo been constructed-' of western  stone, -and in this connection Mr. G.  G. Ommanney. in charge of the development branch of the department  of colonization and development of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, ^draws attention to. tho greater use of Canadian  stone, in preference to foreign importations during the past few years.  "Wo havo been prone  to overlook  our    own    raw    materials," said. Mr.  Ommanney. "'but the results attained  in the use of Manitoba stone in-the  * recent    construction    of   large apartment,    office,    public and commercial  buildings,  both from an architectural  and construction viewpoint, have forcibly brought home to Canadian architects and builders that in Canada- we  have a variety of building stone, and  in sufficient quantities to supply the  needs of the Dominion for many years  to come.      This is  evidenced by the  fact - that  in   the construction .of the  above-mentioned buildings, as well as  the Parliament Buildings    at    Regina  and Winnipeg, the law courts at Winnipeg and other .structures in Winnipeg,  Fort  William>  Sault  Ste.  Marie,  Toronto, and  Quebec,* Manitoba stone  has been utilized with most satisfactory results."  The qua lories from which this' stone  Is being shipped are situated about  thirty miles7 northeast of Winnipeg  near the' stations-of Gars on and Tyn-  dall on the LacDu Bonnet branch  of- the "Canadian Pacific Railway.'-- At  the chief centre, near Garson, three  largo quarries are in operation, ana  a number of smaller ones or undeveloped pi-ospects occur in theimmediate  OUR CROSSWORD PUZZLE  jirls playing in the  fields near Soissons, Franco, found a  small  shell,  overlooked by  battlefield  .-H-cU��������� after tfce w.      .��������� p.���������-.n������  S" ^.^nsarol^  with c.h.3 shell they struck, the detonator and the .-hell exploded.

With an effort he  dragged himself back and whined. He  caught the i'reslijcent of McTaggart's  njoccasins in the snow, and the whine  changed slowly into a long snarl. He  looked over again.      Still he could not  ani.be looked; and his muscles twitch.  ed as the truth grew* in him; and at'  last he raised bis head slowly until  his1 black muzzle pointed to the white  storm In the sky, and out of his throat  there went "forth the quavering, long-  drawn howl of the husky who mourns  outside' the tepee of a master who is  newly dead.  On the trail,' heading for Lae Bain,  Bush McTaggart heard the cry and  shivered.  It was the smell of smoke, thicken-  ing in the air'until" it stung his nostrils, that drew Baree at last^away  from the chasm, and back to the cabin.  There was not much left when he  came to the- clearing. Where the  cabin had been was,a red-hot, smouldering mass". For a long time he sat  watching it,-still waiting and still listening. He no longer felt the effect  of the bullet that bad stunned him,  but^ his senses were undergoing another, change now, as strange and unreal as their struggle against that  .darkness of near-death in the cabin.  In a. space that'had not covered more  than an hour the world had twisted itself grotesquely for Baree. That long  ago the Willow was sitting before her  little mirror in the cabin, talking to  him and laughing in her happiness,  while he lay in vdst contentment' on  the floor.

Independents in Less Favor Now  Mr. Esling quoted from the.  Prime Minister's speeches early in  the election campaign referring to  the need of a substantial majprity  for a government. In Kootenay  West Mr. King had asked the elee-  8 peak well  for   the   prosperity   of  between tv. o   and   three   hundred  when so many of them are depending; upon government   paternalism.  Still the people  of   Nakusp   want  settlers.    Some of the settlers com  inft there invested their all  in laud  at two and three hundred  dollars  an-acre���������land worth possibly $2 an  acre if   cleared.    The   government  should protect immigrants from the  land sharks.    When  a  community  has to depend   upon   new   settlers  taking the abandoned properties of  older settlers at is   in a   bad   way.  The same   game   was   tried   here  eome years ago in   an   endeavor brf  land sharks to plot and sell   blocks  at Trout Creek on the  west side of  the lake, but the business men(gave  it tbe   cold   shoulder.

'' It  is a mouthful," said Mr. Esling,  but the Prime Minister swallowed it like-maple syrup.''  Mr. King had been very friendly to Independent candidates before the election, but he,was not  saying many nice things to the  Independent candidate in Prince  Albert.  Development of the natural ^resources of British Columbia would  solve Canada's immigration problem, her unemployment problem.  and certainly the exodus of Canadians to the United States.

Trade Prospects Reviewed At  Meeting of Bank of Montreal  O' .... -    - : :  *-'. -   -\  More than ordinary interest this year!  attaches to the proceedings at the an-  annual meeting .of. the Bank of* Montreal because of the general hope that  commercial conditions'. promise improvement ���������nd the knowledge that  bankers are in best position to confirm  "\  come a liquidation of farmers' liabili- ���������*  ties, and therefrom' an improvement in  business generally the, country 'over.  Sir,  Frederick  Williams-Taylor, the  General Manager, dealt more particularly   with   th/* affairs  of  the   Bank.v  The strength of the Bank .was reveal- "*"  Civil Marriage In Turkey  In  that expectation. . The note sounded j ed in figures in- thev percentage of  by Sir "Vincent Meredith, the Presi- liquid assets to public liabilities to  dent, and by Sir Frederick- Williams-   the extent of 66 per cent.      Deposits  i ana <  da s   G  rowing Time  /  \  Having .entered upon a new year of activity, Canadians may with profit to  themselves, and as a source of_inspirationand encouragement, take a brief  backward glance over the first quarter of the century���������the century which Sir  Wilfrid "Laurier declared-with eloquence and conviction would be Canada's  century just as the Nineteenth Century belonged to the United States.  Within the scope' of such a brief article as appears weekly in this column  it is possible to touch only the high water marks of ffest- achievement, but  these serve to give confidence for the future. Despite the blue-ruin talk  -which some people seem to delight in, and of which quite a. little.is heard  from politicians around election times, the���������'. fact remains that Canada made  solid and gratifying progress during the first quarter of the century, notwithstanding the setbacks resulting from the war.  Too much attention is given to the flowyof population from the Dominion  to the United States, while too little is devoted to the steady increase.in our  own population. Canadians might just as well make up their.minds to the  fact that a large, self-contained cotfntry like the United States will always  p.roye a powerful .magnet to the people of Canada immediately adjoining it,  speaking the same language, and with so many things in common. Sach attraction is both  natural and  inevitable.  But how many Canadians take time to consider that the population of  the Dominion nearly doubled in the first quarter of this century, from 5,3Jl,-'  315 in 1901 to nine millions.now ' And now that the most disastrous aftereffects of the war are passing, with the United States enforcing rigid laws  against'immigration to that country, and with more business-like methods of  promoting Immigration to Canada, the tide of incoming settlers to Canada  is steadily rising, with prospects for 1926 brighter than ever. .���������*- _  What are these larger number of Canadian citizens doing? In 19.0.1 the  area of occupied lands in Canada was 63,334,S15 acres and of improved lands  30,166,03% acres, while in 1921 the 'acreage of occupied lands had increased  to 140,887,903 acres, and of improved lands ^to 70,769,548 acres, having more  than doubled in both cases within twenty years.  *���������    In 190.0 the capital employed in Canadian ^industries amounted to ?446,-  900,000; in 1922 it was $3,125,773,000, or nearly eight times as great.  Canada's imports in 1900 were valued at $172,65:1,676, and exports at  ?1S3,237,555P or a favorable trade balance oC a little over ten millions, and representing a total foreign trade of $356,000,6*00. In 3.924 imports had grown*to  "?S93,366,S67 and exports to 51,058,553,297, or a favorable trade balance of  $165,000,000 in a total (foreign trade of nearly two billions of dollars. Tho  figures tor 1925 will reveal an even more satisfactory showing.  Canadians-should absorb these figures, and many more of a like character which might toe quoted, and, instead of? decrying their country -and  thinking of It as slow and uuprogressive and the reverse of prosperous,^should  boost for Canada on all occasions and give intelligent answers to its- critics  nnd detractors. ' '  The now year ai J92C was ushered in with business more active and  flourishing throughout tine Dominion than for many years- past, with many of  the larerest industries working overtime to fill orders, with less unemployment  than usually prevails in mid-winter, and with'an optimistic note being sound-  i-d by all-the large financial concerns. ...._.  Th.- ftrat. quarter of the Twentieth Century, "notwithstanding the war, witnessed great progress In Canada and the beginning of the fulfillment of the  prophecy that it -would prove" to' be' Canada's century. The .progress thus  mad-*, and tlie exceedingly favorable conditions under which tlio Dominion has  entered upon rhe second quarter of the century, give confidence that when the'  half-century mark has been reached, the development and progress of Canada  wilt ha. sound io harp b---'.n indeed remarkable and not surpassed bj," any other,  country in -hr; world.  1C Canadians are true to t.lu-mselves", ihey can realize for their country In the  next f*������������������-*- yr-rat-H tb** grr-firest. expectations ever entertained for the Dominion  by its moHi. ad-dent patriots, "Thia is Canada's Century" should bo the slogan  of all���������--a be*t con light beckoning all citizens, and inspiring them to put forth  ih*lr hfE.hti.--t and greatest endeavors.  First Ono  On  Record  Took  Place  Constantinople  The first civil marriage in Turkey;,  that of a Turkish school mistress and  a governmentofficial,; took  place at  Eski Shehr, says'a "dispatch, from Constantinople to the London Daily Mail.  Both the bride and groom signed a con  tract declaring they would enjoy equal  rights; ihat any act infringing equality  would violate the sanctity of the family, and that until conditions of existence became easier, both must work,  for a living.  SAVED BABY'S LIFE  Mri=fc Alfred Tranchemontagne, St.  Michel des Saintes, Que., writes:���������  "Baby's Own Tablets are an excellent  medicine. They saved my baby's life  and I can highly recommend thein to  all mothers." Mrs. Tranchemon-  tagne's experience is that of thousands of other mothers who have tested the worth of Baby's Own Tablets.  The Tablets are assure and safe medicine for little, ones and never fail to  regulate the bowels and stomach, thu:s  relieving all the minor ills from which  children suffer. They are sold by  medicine dealers or by mail at 25 cts.  a box from The Drl Williams* Medicine  Co., Brockville, Ont.  Taylor, the General Manager, wairdis  tinctiy- optimistic. - The address of  the President covered a wide field of  finance and trade,- a survey in a large  way of existing domestic conditions iny  which encouragement was found,? and  a review of-affairs in other countries  with/which Canada carries on cbm-  merce aDJ[d whose -financial condition  reflects in'sonde degree "upon ourselves".  The balance sheet of the banks is the  alter ego of business, and in the former may be read the state of the latter.  Bank depositsv have grown while; bank  loans  for  commercial  purposes, have  have  grown,  particularly  Savings deposits, and circulation of notes is larger.     An- important point was'brought  out by Sir Frederick when he said that *  "Canada now has* one branch 4>ank<for  every: 2,200 people, as compared with-  one  bank for. every "3,700 persons' in'  the United States and for every 3,000  persons  in  Australia."    * The  notion.  that recent amalgamations of banks In t  Canada-have reduced banking facilities/  is dissipated by these figures.  Summing up  the  outlook for  Canada, Sir Frederick said: ���������  .   We have- vast natural resources and  decreased, a; sure sign oiy receding an i������dustriors people���������in fact, .all  trade. But the country is emerging -that feoes to make a great and strong  from the slough. In the opinion of .nation���������but prudent management of  Sir "Vincent Meredith,"there is no -bur. affairs is fundamental. Without  question but that the "trend Of busi- ��������� that all our manifoldvadvantages mean  hess is slowly-but surely upward," and j nothing. -      - __  In support, of this conclusion .lie! cites |; We shouldt.e-werN keep before us the  *many examples.

He told  of. developments in.

Wheat has "long been known-as tho  most important of Canada's*^-cereal  crops, and it is in the production of  this crop that the .most striking progress is-noticeable ni the just complot-  ed quarter oE a*' century. To illustrate this point, in 1900 Canada had a  wlieat  area  of about  -1,225,000  acres,  which yieldod her a crop of around 56,-  000,000 bushels, worth amout $37,000.-  000,' while in i925 her area In vrheat  has been about 22,000,000 acros,.<.wlth  an estimated yield of around 400,000,-  000 bushels, worth say  This shows an increase. of over 300  per cent, in area, of over 800 per cent,  in yield, nnd of over 1,100 per cent.

If it is intended io leave a field in alfalfa for a  number of years ..-which has not previously grown this crop, continues Mr.  Hppjjcins, it would be wise to grow on  It. a mixed hay crop, including* alfalfa,  first and then, at some later period,  seed to alfalfa. In any* case it 3s  wise to add a few pounds df timothy  seed to" fill in any low spots In the  field in which the alfalfa might get  killed. Five founds of timothy to  ������450,000,000. fifteen pounds pf alfalfa will serve.  "While -the choice 4s n������t important as  a rule, barley is preferable as a nurse  crop to oats or wheat.
