It is a big and fairly expensive job requiring the services  of a small army of men, and, after their initial work is completed, hundreds  of clerks and expert statisticians will he engaged for months compiling,  tabulating- and analyzing ihe returns sent in to Ottawa by these thousands  of enumerators.  The question may naturaJly arise in the minds of some people: Is it ail  worth while? Is such a large expense justified:, especially in these times of  declining revenues and enforced economies, merely to ascrtain how many  people there are in Canada, and an array of facts relative to each individual?  There can. be only one answer to such questions. It is very much worth  wiiile; in fact, it is vitally important. Just as it is of importance and value  to a farmer to know how many bushels of grain he may have produced from  a .given number of acres; how many ehickerLS he possesses; how many  pounds of niilk and cream his cows have produced; or to a business man  how great his annual turnover has been, so ia the collection of the census  information of importance and value to the nation as a whole. It is a form  of national stocktaking.  But that is not all. Under our Canadian system of government, and the  relationships, financial and otherwise, which exist between the Federal and  Provincial governments, population is an important factor. In many  respects it is the all-important, the deciding factor.  First and foremost, the representation of the people in Parliament is  based, on population. I_ci us illustrate: Suppose, for example, the census  shows a population of 3,000,000 people in the Province of Quebec. Under  the constitution those 3,000,000 people are entitled to 65 members in the  House of Commons, that is, one member for each 46,154 people. Therefore,  each group of 46,154 people in every other Province is entitled to a member.  After each, decennial census there is a redistribution of representation in the  Soviets Could: Mobilize  Large Army   Quickly  N"a������ioi_a5   -Leaaera   Have   Maaa   Fro-  -, vision For Any Emergency  _ I>espite protests from the Soviet  that the Russians are working for  peace it is estimated that the nation  could mobilize an army of 17,000,900  men within three months of the outbreak of war. Of these, some 10,-  000,000 would be members of line  regiments and provide a rifle strength  of that'number.  Within three weeks of the start,  the Soviet is believed capable of  throwing 3,000,000 fighting meri into  action. In .addition, the national  leaders have been concentrating on  supplies, and they keep permanently  in reserve enough' coal to last three  months. They are also building up  the air wing of the fighting corps.  Besides tossing bxsshels of wheat on  the world markets, the Soviet is evidently ready to thnow in quite a supply of cannon fodder when the time  conies.  WAKDRGBE  "A death occurred in our family and  I had to go in * mourning. I could  hardly afford to buy all black  clothes, so decided to dye what I  had. I consulted our druggist and  he advised using Oiamond Dyes.  Everything tcame out beautifully;  coats, wool dresses, stockings and  all. I have since learned' to appreciate  the excellence of the black Diamond  Dyes. I tried another black dye and  the results were impossible. I had to  g'et Diamond Dyes and do the work  over. Recently I have tinted my  curtains a beautiful raspberry shade  and dyed a rug a lovely garnet with  Diamond Dyes. They are real money  savers���������the finest dyes money can  buy���������I truly believe."  Mrs. G. K. I_., Montreal.  -������-@ih������rs!    Don8!

In this way  the representation ofrall paftJl of the Dominion is made and kept uniform  and equitable.  Provinces is based on population. The Dominion pays cash grants to the  Provinces of so much per head of population, and in the case of the three  prairie provinces it pays increasing amounts annually as population increases  until a certain maximum amount is reached. Unless there was a census-  taking these amounts could not be accurately ascertained.  Again, only by knowing the population is it possible to arrive at such facts  as the amount of the per capita debt, per capita taxation, volume of trade  and commerce per capita, and a volume of other statistical matter upon  which both national and Provincial policies of finance and taxation are  Sounded.  While the enumerators are thus "counting noses" they are also gathering other important information. The wealth of the Dominion, its productive capacity, the social condition of its people, their racial antecedents, the  , extent of their illiteracy, how many "males and how many f emales, how  many children, middle-aged, and aged people,���������information all having a  bearing on future policies for the development and well-being of the  Canadian nation.  This year, for the flrst time, complete information is to be obtained on  the subject of unemployment,���������how many are out of work, the nature of  their usual employment, what caused their state of unemployment, etc., etc.,  -���������all with a view to finding out the actual extent and causes of unemployment as a guide to finding out and applying the necessary remedies, and  developing policies to prevent a recurrence of such an unsatisfactory and  deplorable condition.  It will be seen, therefore, that the census-taking is a vitally Important  national undertaking. It Is clearly the duty of every citizen to co-operate  with and assist tho census enumerator In his work. His questions should  not be resented, but, on tho contrary, should be welcomed and full information freely and gladly given to him. He will be discharging his duty, a  national duty at that. In like manner thc citizen will be discharging a*  national duty by extending every assistance in his power.  Vimy   Memorial ..._.

A. Dickie,. Canadian war flier, died.
when his 'plane s-yi/ooped earthward
and crumpled its nose in tho rough
forest land ten miles from the outskirts of Port William. Eighteen-
year-old Marion Swain; who was flying with Capti Dickie at the time of
the crash, lies in hospital here in a
critical condition.
Cause of thc accident, witnessed
by only., a few , persona, could not
xmmeoxaupsjr mc ucwciuiubu. it as
believed that the Gypsy Moth, a machine familiar to the war ace, swung
into spin from which it could not be
extricated. Position of the passengers
ln the debris did not indicate to
rescuers which one was piloting the
'plane when the accident occurred.
Misa Swain recently obtained .her stti
lt is proposed to asaist ihe prov- j life
inces in connecting up ihe unfinished
portions of the trans-Canada highway, and iu this connection the prime
minister suggested that assistance
might also be given out of the Federal treasury for the maintenance of
highways connecting provinces.
The railway companies have been
aske<t to inform the government
what -works they can undertake.
Mr. Bennett stated, and assist-mce
would be decided upon in relation
to the cost of such undertakings..
The -question of the Peace River
outlet will be left over, he ..aid. until the next .session or' parliament
which would, be called soon after the
new year.
_ The Dominion gov._rr_.i-en.. will
deal directly with the provinces in
its assistance to public .works of a
provincial or municipal nature, and
also in granting one-third of the
amount expended in cases where
municipalities have to provide relief
other than, that of giving employment.
The amendments to the customs

to relieve considerably the uncmploy-

Information received from the
various provinces of Canada indicates
that there are now 117.000 people

ia a prospect that this number may

made his reference to familiar figures !

By choosing an ass to rids upon,  Jesus plainly showed the people that  He was not to be thought of as a  military leader, for the horse was  used in warfare, while the ass was  the fitting animal for the Prince of  Peace.

One glance through  his porthole had driven him out of  bed, in order not to miss a moment  of the enchanted scene.

The warm air���������the. rich coloring of  the landscape���������its very difference  from the ice-clad New, England he  had left behind, caught Nick's imagination, and held it spellbound. If Gay  were only with him I Sudden regret  flooded throtigh him���������regret that sho  could not see it���������that she was not  hero to share his joy in theso strange,  But you needn't let it-trouble you,  wife-of-mine. I know how you feel  about Mrs. Halliday, so for your comfort I'll say that we've parted company, xt 'was a queer coincidence our  taking the same boat; but she's stopping at Port Antonio, and my work  will keep me at Kingston for the  present. So don't worry about your  wandering boy. You wouldn't if you  knew how constantly he thinks of  you, and what a sinner lie feels to  enjoy things so tremendously when  you aren't with him.

They  stood Sn the doorway of the living-  room, "which was lighted only by the  blazing logs upon the hearth. Deep  in her story, Gay was wholly unaware of any audience save the  youthful one beside her. Little Nick  was in his nighty, his small, bare feet  stretched out to the welcome warmth.  A big log burst apart, sending a  shower of sparks into the dark above,  and casting a veritable halo about  Gay's head-  James Halliday breathed deeply at  4rVy o   v*r_-yt*/9cf  ������___.w    ���������. *w_.������_..  _ "No," he responded, "they will  never forget it.

And in that moment little Martha turned and saw him. She  slipped from Gay's encircling arm,  and ran to him.  "I love you best," she whispered,  as he "caught her up. "I love you best  of anyone."  It wag the next day that Martha  forced him into a decision he had  long been considering. She was watching him use his typewriter, a, pursuit  of which she never tired; and having  become accustomed to her presence it  did not 'disturb him, because she rarely spoke. But this morning as he  paused, hunting an elusive word, she  said: "Sonny and little Nick���������they  have a daddy."  Halliday smiled.

He wrote a page or two each day,  and mailed them whenever a boat  was going. Gay did the same, relating the hiome doings with the skill of  a real story-teller, repeating the  funny sayings of the children, and  the quaint remarks of Uncle Sim, in  a way that brought them, very near  to the absent one.  But she did not mention Angela  Halliday. Nick noticed tlie omission,  and put it down to forgetfulness until  other letters also ignored the meeting. He knew then that Gay had purposely refrained from writing .of It.  "She didn't like it," lie puzzled,  "yet she can't be.jealous. That would  be too absurd. Perhaps she just  couldn't say anything pleasant on the  subject so she said nothing. That  would bo like Gay���������blesp her dear  heart! Still, I wish she'd spoker_ of it.

"Then," he said huskily, "that settles it..I believe you're;my 'best favourite,* also."  But Martha, it seemed had more to  say.  "They have a mother, too," she  hesitated.
