Land of Opportunity and Service  u  Canada, and Western Canada iu particular, has frequently been described  as a young man's country���������a country in which the humblest boy possessed of  ability and energy, plus ambition, lias an opportunity of rising to the top in  any walk of. life-he may choose, and of achieving the highest position which  iL is within the power of his fellow citizens to bestow. Over and over again  has the correctness of this opinion been verified in the lives of young men. who  have risen to positions of influence and power in this country whereas they  probably would have led uneventful lives had they remained in their old environment.  It is doubtful, however, if quite "so striking an example of the rapid rise  cf a young man from very humble suiroundings to a high and honored position  has ever been afforded as in the case of Hon. Charles A. Dunning, "until a few  days ago Premier of Saskatchewan and now Minister of Railways and Canals  iu the Dominion Government. The story of Mr. Dunning's life since coming  to Western Canada reads like a romantic fairy tale.  Mr. Dunning has not yet reached his forty-first birthday, having been  born In Leicestershire, England, on July 31, 1S85. As a youth of 17, and delicate in health, he emigrated to Saskatchewan and began work as a farm hand.  The following year he homesteaded at Beaverdale, Sask., and, like all new  settlers without worldly wealth, began to break his quarter section and erect  his log and sod buildings. In the year prior to Mr. Dunning's arrival in what  is now the Province of Saskatchewan, the Territorial Grain Growers' Association was organized, and the newly-arrived English lad soon identified himself  with the "Local" in his district, and thus commenced to render public service  and climb the ladder of fame.  Within a few years he was a director of the Association, then vice-presi  dent for four years. During this period the Saskatchewan Co-operative Elevator Co. was created, and Mr. Dunning was appointed its first General Manager, which position he held for six years, developing the infant Company _  until it reached the position of being the world's greatest initial grain handling  concern. Then, in 1916. when W. M. Martin succeeded Walter Scott as Premier of Saskatchewan, he called Mr. Dunning- to his cabinet-as Provincial  Treasurer, and, with the possible exception of Quebec, no Province's finances  were better handled during the last of the war years and during the difficult  years of readjustment and depression that followed than were those of Sas  katchewan.  in 1922, Mr. Martin retired from the Premiership, and Mr. Dunning was  tlie unanimous choice of the Liberals of Saskatchewan as his successor.  Thus within nine years, of arriving in Saskatchewan, and at the early age of.  2G, Mr. Dunning was General Manager of one of the Dominion's biggest companies; at the age of 31 this English emigrant lad was a cabinet minister; at  37 he was Prime Minister of the Province.- What oMier country can offer a  parallel to such a record!  During the war Mr. Dunning threw his abounding energy and organizing  abilities into the task of furnishing the wherewithal to enable Canada and the  Latest Idea In  Surgery  Alberta Professor Discovers  Medicine  That    Hastens    Recovery    Of 7  Broken Bones'*  Medicine io speed up recovery from  broken bones is the latest idea in surgery. >  Bones consist largely of calcium  phosphate, and after a fracture, fresh  quantities' of this substance must be  taken from the blood for ������he forma?  tion of new bone. The healing process is slow owing to the small quantity of calcium and phosphorus in the-  blood.   ���������     . ,  Professor  Collip, of the  University  of   Alberta,   Edmonton, obtained from  the    parathyroid    glands    "an    extract  which^when injected or given by the  mouth, increases the amount of both  calcium  and phosphate  in  the  blood.  The parathyroids are four small glands  in the neck near the thyroid gland, or  _. ���������_.*=''  embedded in it.

Calmly Accepts High Death Rate  From Auto Accidents  In the" United States the vdeath rate  from automobile accidents is forty-  eight every twenty-four hours, with  100 injured in that period. The most  peculiar fact associated with these figures, according to statisticians who  are studying them, is that the people  show little Or no concern oyer the  large casualty ,.-rate, although if war  were taking that many every day there  would be great excitement about it.

He was chairman of the  -Victory Loans campaigns in Saskatchewan for three years in succession, and  Director of Food Production in Canada during the last critical year of'1918.  And now, secure in .the Premiership, with an overwhelming majority in  the Legislature following an election of less than a year ago, Mr. "Dunning  relinquishes a safe and comparatively easy position to go to Ottawa and take  over one of the heaviest and most responsible portfolios in the Dominion  Government. And those who know him most intimately are agreed tlikt he  (Ioojj so in order that he may thereby render still greater service to the country of his adoption and the Empire which gave him birth.  It is well for Canada that it can provide such opportunities for advancement to its people, and it is even better for Canada that when the occasion and  tin. need arise, her sons are willing to give her their very best in effort and  service.  Apart -altogether from partizan feelings and affiliations, the people of  Wt.si^rn Canada are proud of: the achievements of Mr. Dunning and rejoice  to hav*> him in tho Government at. Ottawa at a time when strong men, filled  with in:;la*ivf-, and capable of safe but progressive leadership are urgently  needed. Although a Westerner by his own choice, and fully seized .with the  problorn.r and ner.ds of this section of the Dominion, Mr. Dunning's vision is  r.oi rosiricred to the prairi**?-. He will approach and deal with Canadian problems, not from any narrow or sectional viewpoint, but in the. interests of Can-  ad.'"- a:-' a wholo.  Knowing the West as ho does and its enormous possibilities, he will apply  hir; onorgies beneficially lor the West, not because it is the West, but because  th*-roby "ho welfare and prosperity of Canada as a national unit will be. ad-  vaneoil.

W2B  What   Rheims   Requires  But  Restoration   Is  Almost  Complete  City   Needs   Population  There is one city in the world, at  any rate, in which there is no shortage of houses.        '   "*  Rhehns was practically destroyed  during the war, but it has been rebuilt.  It has fine houses/fine shops and fine  factories, but the factories lack-workers, the shops lacks customers," arid  the houses lack" inhabitants.

" ... .      ���������  The evil is too gigantic to .permit  the comfortable illusion that only its  smouldering embers remain? In some  parts of the world it flourishes openly in all the horrors of its traditional  form. _ In others it abounds in new  disguises, equally deadly in their  bonds of serfdom. Their existence  might be unbelievable-without the disclosures being made by the .League of  Nations, which has a commission  charged with the discovery of the  forms slavery is now taking, and with  an attack upon their continuance.  Though slavery still persists in  many of its habitual regions in Africa,  its more dangerous phases, because  they are less definable, are found in  many quarters of the globe. It is  true that Africans captured chiefly tn  Northern _ Africa are transported  mainly through^Egypt and Somali into  the Near East, and there held in abject  slavery.-. It is true, too, that children,  especially* girls, are brought rrom the  Far East on pilgrimages to Mecca, and  sold by their parents into slavery in  Arabia. And it is stated lo be equally undeniable that under 1he government- of freed slaves ruling the  ' republic of Liberia," slavery is permitted and practiced.  A "United States commission of inquiry- has submitted to the league a*  report of harrowiiig. conditions .found  in Portuguese Africa, notably in Angola and Mozambique. -In fact, the  whole story of slavery in the world  as revealed by tlie. commission of the  .League of Nations is one of gra.ve and  disquieting import.

"A select carcase was first shown  to show the source of meat ot even  ..quality with that shown in a cured  state. The finished product " was.  hung on the rail, dishes made from  it were displayed on a table beneath  and prepared most temptingly, and  the equipment lor curing also exhibited. To complete the effect, sandwiches  made from the final cooked ham were  distributed to the delegates with coi-  fee.  A review of current prices showed  a striking spread between the  dressed  carcase  uncured   and   the  treated  bapon and ham.     AVhereas it paid better as a, rule  to "sell  live hogs than  | dressed carcases  from  the  farm,  the  ; saving on home cured meats "as com-  I pared with  buying them made it appear well* worth while to cure a ear-  case for home use.

Professor Finds Mixture Guaran-  "teed To Repel Mosquitoes  Discovery of a mosquito repellant- is  announced by Dr. William Rudolphs,  instructor of entomology at Rutgers  University.  The discovery was the result of a  four-year study. "The best protection can. be'. secured - "By mixing ordinary insect powder extract witfy  vaseline, cold cream, or face powders,"  he says.      "For making    a    repellant  i about- fourteen parts of oil or extract  was mixed with 94 to 96 parts of vase-  1 line or cold cream. In case a powder is wanted the substance    can    be  l^mixed with wheat    flour,   -or * talcum  I powder."  j Dr. Rudolphs explained that in mixing the ingredients he used as much  oil as the powder would absorb without becoming pasty. The mixture, he  announced, afforded protection "lor  from  two   to  three hours.

' *���������  The- continued interest of the Canadian Pacific. Railway in, progress of  agriculturists who have seitled in territory-served by its lines is continually being evidenced In fresh manner.  This spring, in an effort to increase  the growing of forage crops, through  certain sections of the prairie provinces, a vigorous campaign of encouragement and practical assistance- will  be, prosecuted _. through arrangements  which haye. been made between the  "Canadian Pacific Railway and the provincial departments of agriculture. In  each province of Manitoba. Saskatchewan, and Alberta a special forage car  will circulate through the districts it  is desired to reach carrying to them  the ' doctrine of a" safer and more  stabilized system  of fai-ming.  The Canadian Pacific Railway has  equipped and is operating the car free  of charge In each province, and this  will contain samples ol various forage  seeds and be staffed by experts supplied by the provincial department of  agriculture who will lecture at the  various stops. Attached also are cars  carrying a liberal supply of seed which"  will be disposed df to farmers in small  lots for experimental purposes, growers being able io secure sufficient for*"  areas up to five acres. Small packages of corn will be distributed to  school children,--enough to seed one  quarter of an acre, and they will have  an opportunity to enter various competitions-held in the fall in connection  with the ������orn show which ia now an  established institution in each province. In Alberta the tree -planting  car, which' has performed such valuable work In the past, is accompany--  ing the  forage car.  Throughout the campaign special  emphasis will be placed on: the growing of fodder- crops which have been  found- best adapted to local conditions.  A great deal of knowledge has- developed out of the experiments and* experiences of the pasffifteen years and  an effort is being made "to carry this  to" the parts of the country* where its  application as likely to prove of the  greatest value. Corn growing for  fodder will be given the attention its  growing importance warrants, whilst  sweet clover, brome grass, and" alfalfa  will also have their respective places  in "the campaign. In 1925 the-three  prairie provinces combined had 979,-  5)79 acres devoted to_ hay aud clover  which yielded l������65S40uG tons; 63,151  acres to alfalfa yielding 141,700 tons;  and 166,220 acres to fodder corn yielding 548,000 ions. ���������  ���������$XXfvn'x::%  tf^J^W^&^.k\,ZAZv>'i,<;\   A-k'W'Z'-: '"':;. ,:* ���������'7'7'y.',.    i.'.j'  -*.,   tf  lila  Wliicatltm.

Trades Claim For Oats  Red Lake Prospector Needed Supplies  For His  Horses  Romances of the gold rush days in  the Klondyke are having their counterparts in the Red Lake flurry of today.  Like an echo of freal^bargains in the  old days, corafes, a tale of a bargain  struck "in the northern goldfields ol  Ontario.  Tim Crawley, a youthful prospector,  had taken a team of horses into ihe  outer regions of the Red Lake mining  area. He had a small supply of oata  and less hay. At the moment when  equine provisions are running low, he  came in contact with A.-H. Farington,  pilot of one of the - planes that survived the crash.  Crawley entered into a bargain with  the airman. He agreed to stake a  claim for Farington in exchange for a  bag of oats.  Stories brought from Hudson, Ont.,  indicate that many similar bargains  are being made.

You Can Lay-the Foundation of  Good Health' Now by Building  Up Your Blood and Strengthening   Your   Nerves   Through  ��������� the Use of Dr. Williams' Pink  puis.   '.;;,yy:'r  The good old fashion of taking a  tonic iri the spring time, like most of  the customs of our grandparents* is  based upon sound common sense and  good, medical practice. Winter is always a tfying time for those who are  not in i"U^ge6r**health. Many men,  tvomen. and' children go through the  winter on .reserve strength they have  stored up during the sunny summer  months, a.nd grow increasingly pale  and languid as the spring days approach. - y A tonic for the blood and  nerves at this time will do much toi  such- people, by'putting color in the  cheeks and banishing that tired feeling that worries tliousands of people  at this  season of the year.  It is impossible, to be -.energetic if  your blood" is thin andTweak, or if  your nerves are frayed5 or shattered.  You. cannot '.compete ivitli'N others if  you. do not get refreshing sleep at  night, or if your appetite is poor or  yon are losing weight. You need a  tonic at this time to add to your efficiency now", as well as to save you  from suffering later on. And in all  the realm' of medicine, there is no  safer or better tonic than Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills. These pills tone  and enrich the blood which circulates  through e*ery portion ot* the body,  strengthening jaded nerves and rundown organs, and bringing a feeling  of new strength and energy to weak,  easily tired, despondeitt, men, women  and children.  Miss    K."
