As we  learned in Paul's history in The Acts,  Labor Government En Australia Found:  Meat Business- Unprofitable  A Lahor government in Queensland,  Aiistralia, decided, several years ago,  that the public was paying too much  for meat, and plunged into the business.   It purchased a number of splendid ranches and put government officials in charge.   The advance picture  drawn by the politicians was one of  assured profits and cheaper meat. The  actual results were enormous deficit..  nnd  dearer meat.       The  final  blow  can.c  with  the  sale  of the  ranches.  They   cost   $6,359,000,   besides  which  t^e  government  raised  $5,750,000   to  meet operating.losses, or a total outlay of $12,100,000.    And all the state  got back when it sold out was $2,600,-  000.       The disastrous experiment in  socialism cost every man, woman and  child  in  Queensland  $10  more   each  in taxes.

She  elected, therefore, to occupy the time  by touring round the great, unknown  city of her dreams in a taxi-cab, and  spent a beatific hour glimpsing the  Abbey and the Houses of Parliament,  =and the old, grey, misty river that  Londoners love, and skirmishing in  And out of the shops to Hegent Street  -and Bond Street with her hands full  of absurd, expensive, unnecessary pur-  ���������chases only bought because this was  London and she felt she just simply  must have something English at once,  -aad winding up with a spin through  Hyde Park���������which didn't impress her  very favourably In its winter aspect  -of leafless trees and barren stretches  ���������of sodden grass.  Then she drove to a hotel, and, her  luggage deposited there to await her  'departure, her thoughts turned very  naturally towards lunch. Her scamper round London in the crisp, clear,  frosty air had converted the recollec  tion of her early morning coffee and  roll into something extremely nebulous and unsupporting, and it was  with the healthy appetite of an eager  ��������� young' mind :-__r-aa_. eager young body  that she faced theYseveral courses of  the table d'hote.  She glanced about her with interest, the little snatches of English conversation which drifted to her from  other near-by tables giving her a  patriotic thrill of pure delight. These  were typically English people lunching in a typically English hotel, and  she, hitherto a stranger to her own  mother-country, was doing likewise.  The knowledge filled her with ridiculous satisfaction.  Nor were English people���������at home  in their own country���������anything like  na dull and dowdy as Glyn Peterson's  sweeping criticisms had led her to expect. The, men were immensely well-  eroomed" and clean-looking. Sho  liked the "morning-tub" , appearance  )they all had; it reminded her of the  JEpogltshman. at Montavan. Apparently  it was a British characteristic. \  ;. The women, too, filled her with a  species of vicarious pride. They were  ao well turned-out, with a slim, long-  limbed grace of figure she found admirable, and with splendid natural  complexions���������skins like rose and  ivory.  Y Two of them were drifting into the  ioom together now,^with'a; superbly  cool assurance of manner���������rather as  though they had bought tho hotel ���������  which brought the sleek head-waiter  i-Utomatically to their side, bowing  ���������and obsequious.  ,���������' Somewhat to Jean's satisfaction he  convoyed them to the tabic next her  ovsm, and sho was pleasantly c'on-  iidous, as thoy passed her, of a provocative whisper of silk and df the  tfalnti tfragranco of violets subtly por-  raoatlng tho atmosphoro.

'"Lady Anne? Oh, she lives at. Staple now. Didn't you know ?'" ^. ���������  The speaker's voice was clear and  resonant, with the peculiar carrying  quality which has replaced in the  modern Englishwoman of the upper  classes that excellent thing in woman  which was the proud boast of ah  earlier generation.  The conjunction of the familiar  words "Lady Anne" and "Staple"  struck sharply on Jean's ears, and almost instinctively she looked up.  As she stirred, one of the women  glanced Indifferently in her direction,  then placidly resumed her conversation with her companion.  "It was just after the smash-up,"  she pursued glibly. "Blaise Tormarin  rushed off abroad for a time, and  the news of Nesta's death came while  he was away. Poor Lady Anne had  to write and tell him of it."  "Rather ghastly!" commented the  c _u������r woman. . __ never heard the  whole story of the affair. I was in  Paris, then, and it was all over ���������  barring the general gossip, of course!  ���������by the time I returned. I tried to  pump it out of Lady Anne once, but  she was so close as any oyster/*  Both women talked without lowering their voices in the-slightest degree, and with that complete indifference to the proximity oi a stranger sometimes exhibited by a certain  arrogant type.  Jean, realizing that it was her  father's friends "who were under discussion, and finding herself forced  into the position of an unwilling auditor, felt wretchedly uncomfortable.  She wished fervently that she could  in some way arrest the conversation.  Yet it was clearly as impossible for  her to lean forward and say: "You  are talking about the people I am oh  my way to visit," as it would have  been for her to put her fingers in her  ears. So far nothing.bad been said  to which she could actually object.  Her feelingr was chiefly "tbe offspring  of a supersensitive fear that she  might learn from the lips of these  two .gossiping: Women, -one of whom  was apparently .intimately acquainted  with the private history^0%, the Tormarin family, some little fact or detail -which Lady Anne might not care  for her future guest to know. Apart  from this fear, it wOuld hardly have  been compatible with human nature  ���������certainly hot feminine human nature���������if she had not felt pricked to  considerable personal interest in the  topic under discussion.  "Oh, it was a fool business," the  flrst woman rejoined, settling down  to supply the details of the story  with an air of rapacious satisfaction  which reminded Jean of nothing so  much as of a dog- with a bone.

The great cruise  liner will call at Chinwangtao on  April 10th from which port her passengers will visit Pekin and the Great  Wall of China.  Enthusiastic tribute to the excellence of Chinese railways, comfort on  trains, good cuisine in the dining-cars,  effLciency of train operation, was paid  by T. H. Cullum, purser of the  "Franconia,"' who is proceeding to  New York to rejoin his ship for his  seventh cruise around the world. "The  visit to China is always a delightful  revelation to our cruise passengers.  They are surprised at the great comfort of the hotels in cities like Pekin  and Tientsin, and . the . courteous reception everywhere in China."  An interesting option of journeying across Siberia from Vladivostock  instead of crossing the Pacific homeward, is offered to the Cunarder's  passengers. The trip takes 20 days  from Japan via the great trans-  Siberian Railway (now so much in  the public eye), including stop-over  at Harbin, Moscow, Warsaw and Berlin. Another intriguing variation of  the cruise itinerary is the famous  "magic carpet" flight by airplane to  EXCESS FAT iS A  DANGER TO HEALTH!

But Bali, in the Dutch East Indies,  is the high-spot of the cruise, according to Purser Cullum. Here all  the exotic charms of the East have  been exploited efficiently by the  Dutch, long recognized as ideal colonizers. It is an unforgettable experience to watch the Bali temple  dancers perform their strange dances  of subtle rhythms and curious music,  xhe "Franconia" was the first big  ship to call at this out-of-the-way  outpost of civilization.  Being purser on the. great cruise  liner is no sinecure. His elaborate  programme of entertainment for passengers while at sea includes, tournaments at various games, cabaret  shows, contests, movies and lectures.  Besides a cruise director with several assistants, there is a competent  educationist on board in the person  of Dr. C. C. Batchelder, of Boston,  who gives morning lectures while at  sea, on the history, geography, and  general characteristics of each place  to be visited.      He also gives expert  tastes. Some passengers take the  "Franconia" world cruise every year,  because it is an actual economy and  a really marvellous holiday as well.

Many people imagine that the heat  experienced during a world cruise  must be terrific. But Purser Cullum  claims that he has never felt as  much discomfort anywhere in all his  travels as he has experienced in New  York city during typically hot American summer weather. Leaving New  York on a frozen January day, the  cruise liner soon runs into the Gulf  Stream, heading for mild Madeira.  Throughout January, the liner is  cruising the warm Mediterrannean  where light clothes are aiL that are  needed.  The hottest part of the voyage is  between Suez and Manila. People begin to wear whites in the Red Sea.  Evening clothes are of the lightest  material; the men wear a sort of  white mess-jacket with a "Kamer-  band" around the waist, and ordinary evening dress trousers. Many  passengers purchase their tropical kit  in Bombay where prices are very low.  They have themselves measured when  the ship arrives and, when their Indian tour of nine days concludes at  Bombay again, their clothes are ready  waiting for them. "Palm Beach"  clothes, silks, and tropical cottons,  are to be had very cheaply all ovor  the East, particularly in Japan and  China.  Fairly heavy tweeds, a heavy overcoat, and a raincoat, are also necessary for visits to hilly districts in  Japan and India, and for crossing  the Atlantic and Pacific in some  parts.

Difficult For Communists  Reds Find It Almlst Impossible To  Meet In  Cities  It's getting tougher and tougher  for Communists in Canada, Jacob  Penner, Communist candidate for  mayor at Winnipeg, told an audience  he was addressing in a public school.

There is no better way of
remembering distant friends
than by calling, them over the
long-distance telephone. Greetings or messages of congratulation have a deeper ring __ of
sincerity when they are carried
by the voice. They have a
personal appeal that nothing
else can give.
Some     far-off   friend    would
appreciate a greeting from you

Over in the Okanagan they are
thoroughly  convinced that John
Ruskin    was right in his famous
observ ation that * There's hardl v
anything in the world  that  some

those who consider price alone are
his victims."    At Armstrong and

that   is   causing   all   the  grief.
According to the Vernon News at
one time  late last  month  while
the very fine Okanagan butter,
with its rich nutty flavor, was retailing at 30 cents a pound, some
Vernon store keepers were offering Alberta creamery  butter at
19   cents    with buyers aplenty.
Action-has alreaqy been taken to
secure some protection   by petition to the legislature asking  that
in future  butter packages - must
state   whether the contents are
supposed to be first,  second or
third    grade.    At   present there
appears to be no classification in
butter   except   as   between   the
dairy and creamery articles,  and

hard to figure out the financial

it would look as if the prairie live

particularly curious to know why

In practically every impending crisis that has  loomed, upon the international horizon since the League was established,  some newspapers and public men have denounced the League as a failure.  Yet the League has survived and has been the instrument through  which more than one impending open conflict has been, averted. Even in  the present Manchurian crisis, notwithstanding the clashes which have taken  place, can any fair and opened-minded citizen doubt that, had there heen no  League of Nations, a sanguinary war would now he raging in Asia with all  the dire probabilities that it would spread and engulf Europe and possibly  provoke another world disaster!  The League is not perfect. It cannot always attain to its highest ideals.  It cannot always achieve everything it desires. The difficulties which confront it, and the problems which it must solve, are prodigious. Even should  it utterly fail on some one occasion to prevent war,���������and such failure has  not yet heen recorded against it,���������it would not necessarily mean the end of  the League,, nor that its efforts were wholly futile.  The League of Nations is the great clearing house, the arbitration court  of the world's international difficulties. As such it is deserving of the support of all peace-loving people of all nations. Instead of being critical of its  efforts and its achievements where they do not prove 100% efficient, all  peace-loving people should be boosters and enthusiastic supporters. Destroy  the League and the world wouid he thrown into chaos, with the one great  restraining influence of an impartial international character removed, and  the proponents of the gospel of force given a free hand to promote their evil  designs.  As the world progresses towards greater enlightenment, to better understanding between all nations, to an abandonment of narrow nationalism in  favour of true internationalism,���������and the League is bending its efforts in  these directions,���������so, too, will the League itself grow and develop into an  ever increasingly useful factor in world affairs and as an influence for peace.  Something better than the League as at present constituted and governed  will ultimately take its place when the nations are prepared to support that  better organization. In the meantime every Canadian should be an ardent  League of Nations supporter. They should demand that their Government  continue to support the League actively, and do so in a moral way, an intellectual way, in a financial way.  And this year as we sing "Peace an earth, goodwill toward men" may  wa sincerely mean what we sing, and may our song be a re-affirmation. of  our belief in and support of the one great peace organization that arose out  of the war which we were told, and which-we fondly hoped was true, was a  war to end war.

From the nugget found by  an Indian woman on Queen- Charlotte  Islands, and the few colors prospectors panned on the Thompson River,  the industry rose through the placer  era with all its romance, its wealth  and   its   disappointments;   thence   to  the development of lode mining with  its building of mills and smelters and  railroads.    Next  came  the  more  recent   days   when   science   and   skill  manifested itself in the development  of modern ore dressing, smelting and  refining so that man could take from  the earth nature's immense precious  metals, and by its ingenuity, coupled  with capital's   ahility  to  build huge  plants,  gave us wealth never dreamed of before.  result of a strong steady pick-up tojraay be seen, in all pa.ts of the Do  minion.
