Keystone Of  Empire Trade  Canada Recognized As Greatest Factor In Imperial Situation  Some time next year, probably in  the early months, the various governments of the British Commonwealth  of Nations will send delegates t> Ottawa to work'out a basis for the de-  velopraent of inter-Empire, trade.  Because all the Dominion Governments as well as the Government of  Britain will wish to make this conference a decisive one, emphasizing the  actual machinery rather than the  platitudes of commerce, the meeting  will have an importance far beyond  anything of the kind yet attempted.  For this reason the press representation will probably far exceed the  representation of the governments  themselves.  Would it not enable these_-,press  representatives of Britain, of New  Zealand^ of Australia aad of South  Africa bo write with, infinitely more  understanding and intelligence of  their subject if they were sent out  three weeks or a month ahead of the'  actual conference date to tour Canada and to familiarize themselves  with productive and commercial conditions in this Dominion?  For Canada, with all deference to  her sister- Dominions, has become the  keystone of Empire trade. Her natural resources are so great, her productivity so tremendous that she is  recognized as the greatest factor in  the imperial trade situation.  Would not the world get a fairer  report of the conference if the visit-  I ing press representatives saw all this  at first hand before the conference  started and before their views were  colored with the varying tints of  statesmanship ?���������Vancouver Sun.

Warren Crowe, London-  EJngland-  Speaking before a group of physicians at a meeting of the American  Society for the Study of Arthritis,  Dr. Crowe said he discovered, the  value of a vaccine in thc treatment  oif rheumatism by applying it to his  wife. He stated the cure was so  rapid as to fall little short of being  dramatic.      ..-.���������',  The vaccine treatment, which he  declared could be used by the general  prac tltionor everywhere, waa endorsed by other speakers,!including  Dr. Martin K. Rehfuss, Philadelphia,  who asserted i no drug had been found  to cure .the disease.  ..  Dr," 'William W.' Lermann, ��������� Pittsburgh, said the arthritis was an industrial and social, as well aa a medical problem,  ' /"In 'England it is responsible for  one-sixth .of all industrial disability,"  Dr. Lermann said. "Until recently  It was considered incurable, and as  a matter of fact was incurable, because the cause way not 3tnovn_; ,i_ow  It has been found to be & bacterial  infeotion, The miarobos which produce tho diaonso are of the streptococcus gB'oup.

They are, he says,  miniature battleships of 4.00G tons,  designed for coast defense operations  in the Baltic, with Diesel electric  drive and a speed of 16 knots.  Bach of these little ships mounts a  formidable armament of four 10-inch  guns in turrets and eight 4.7-inch  quick firers and there is a substantial armour protection of vital parts.  They are under construction at tho  Crichton Vulcan yard at Abo, Finland, and are due to be completed in  1933. The smallest capital ships in  the world, they are said to be able to  withstand the broadside flre of tho  largest cruisers and are more strongly protected. They are being built  by native labor and largely from domestic materials, as were four submarines now in the Finnish navy.

CHAPTER IX.���������Continued  Jean's heart ga.ve a violent. throb,  and the laughter went suddenly out  ���������of her voice as she repeated blankly:  "To forget Montavan?"  "Please.   I   said���������and   did���������a   few  mad  things  that  day,.we  spent together.   .It was to be an uncounted  ���������day,  you  know,   and���������oh,   well,   the  air of the Alps is heady! I want you  to forgive" me���������and  to  blot out"all  remembrance of it.!'  He seemed" to speak with some effort, yet each word was uttered deliberately, searing its way into her  consciousness like a red-hot iron.  The curt,. difficultly spoken sentences couid only signify one thing���������  that he had meant nothing, not even  :goodtj honest comradeship, that day  at Montavan. He had merely been  amusing himself with a girl whom lie  never expected to meet again, and  now that circumstances had so ; unexpectedly brought them together he  was clearly anxious that she should  be under no misapprehension in the  matter.  Jean's  pride writhed beneath, the  :insult  of it.    1*  was   ****  *"*"c"r'J_ ���������**"���������  feared she might make  some* claim  upon This regard and. had "hastened-to  rwam her, almost in so many words,  mot to set a fictitious value upon anything   that   had   occurred   between  them.   The glamour was indeed born  .from, her  stolen  day  on  the  moun-j  tains!    The   whole   memory    of   it,  -above all, the memory of that pulsing  moment of farewell, would henceforth^  .be soiled   and   vulgarized���������converted  into a rather    sordid    little    episode  which she would have gladly blotted  ���������out from amongst the concrete l_ap-  jpenings of life.  ' The feminine instinct against self-  betrayal whipped her into quick  .speech...  "I've   no  wish  to  forget that you  Ypractically. saved my..-..life,?' she said.  VI shall. always"���������lightly-���������"feel, very  xauch obliged for that."     r  "You exaggerate my share in the  Y3_r_atters" he replied carelessly. "You  ���������would liave extricated yourself from  your difficulties without nay assistance, I have no doubt. Or, more  truly"���������with a short laugh���������"you  would never have got into them."  He -said no more, but let out the  ���������car and they shot forward into the  gathering dusk. Presently they approached a pair of massive iron gates  admitting to the manor drive, and  as these were opened in response to  a shrill hoot from Tormarin-s horn  - tho car swung round: ������hto an avenue  ���������of elms, the bare boughs, interlacing  overhead, making a black network  .against the moonlit sky.  Still in silence they approached  \r the house, its dim grey bulk...lapna-  ^ ing indeterminately through ithe eye-  - ning mist, studded here and there  with a glowing shield of brahge from  '. some unshaded window, knd "almost  before Tormarin; h^d; pulled ; up the  car, the front, door I-flew <opeh and a  white riband of light streamed out  from the hall behind.  Jean was coscious of two or three  figures grouped in tlie open doorw.ay,  dark against the welcoming blaze of  light, then one iof them detached itself from thc group and hastened forward with outstretched hands.  "Here you are at last!" " '  For an instant Jean hesitated,  'doubtful as to whether the speaker  could bo Lady Anne. The voice  which addressed her was so amazingly' young���������clear nnd full of vitality  like tho voice of a girl. Then the  light flickered oh to hair as white, as  ir it had bepn powdered, and she realized" th at this surprisingly younjg  voice must belong to her hostess.  1*1 was so soriy I could not moot  you at the station myself,'' continued  Lady Anne, loading tho way Into, the  liouso, "But a tiresome visitor  turned up���������ono of those people who  mover know whon It'a time to grc> ���������  and I simply couldn't; got away without forcibly ejecting her."  '���������i In tho fullor light of tlie hall, JToan  dincornod in Lady Anne's appearance  aamethlng of that same quality of  inherent youth apparent In hor voice.  The keen,. humorous grey eyes ber  neath their black, arched brows were  alertly vivacious, and the quite white  hair served to. enhance, rather than  otherwise, the rose-leaf texture of her  skin. Many a much - younger, woman  had envied Lady Aiihe iter complexion; it was sib obviously genuine, owing nothing at all toKart_:'!' f,  "And now"���������Jean felt herself pulled gen Uy into the light���������"let me have  a good look at you. Oh, yes!" ���������  Lady Anne laughed amusedly���������"you  have just his chin with that delicious  little cleft in it. JBut your eyes and  hair are Jacqueline's." She leaned forward a little and kissed Jean warmly.  "My dear, you're yery welcome at  Staple. There,is nothing I could have  wished more them to have' you here  ���������except that you could have prevailed upon Glyn to bring you himself."  -'When; you have quite finished going into the ancestral details of Miss  Peterson's features, madonna, perhaps you will present me."  Lady Anne laughed good-humour-  ediy.  "Oh, this is my pushful younger  son, Jean. (I'm certainly going to call  you Jean without asking whether I  may!) You've already made acquaintance with Blaise, v This is Nick."  Nick Brennan was as unlike his  half-brother as he could possibly be  ���������t-dl, and fairland blue-eyed, with a  Tmtmm+a*aOi*VA'l-iT        **.%���������*������  ������3^^4flP  W.   N.    U.    1021  of not having a care in the world.  Jean concluded he must resemble  closely, the dead Claude Brennan,  since, except for a~ certain family  similarity in cut of feature, he bore  little resemblance to his mother.  "Blaise has had an hour's start of  me in getting into your good graces,  Miss Peterson," ne said, shaking  | hands. "I consider it very unfair, but  of course I had to be content ���������- as  usual���������with the younger son's portion."  Jean liked him at once. His merry, lazy blue eyes smiled friendship  at lier, and she felt sure? they should  get on together. She could not  imagine Nick "glooming" about the  world, as one of the women at the  hotel had declared his half-brother  did.   ���������������������������  It occurred to her that it would  simplify matters if both he and Lady  Annewere made awareat once of her  former meeting with Blaise, so- she  took the opportunity offered by Nick's  speech.  "He's had more than that;" she said  gaily. "Mr. Tormarin and I had already met before���������at Montavan."  "At Montavan?" Lady Anne gave  vent to an ejaculation of amused impatience.       "If we had only known!  Blaise  could have accompanied  you  back and saved you all the bothersome details of the journey. But we  had ho idea where he was. He went  off    in    his    usual way"���������smiling a  shade ruefully���������"merely condescending   to Inform   his  yearning  family  that he was going abroad for a few  weeks."    Then, as Tormarin, having  surrendered   the   car   to   chauffeur,  joined the group   In   the   hall,   she  turned to him and continued with.a  faint note of   expostulation   in   her  voice.: "You never told us you had already met Miss PetcrS phi Blaise."  '"I dicln'tkfclow it'htysfclf till I found  her marooned on the platform ������ at  Coonibe Eavie," he returned. His eyes,  meeting Jean's, flickered wltli brief  amusement as he added nonchalantly:  "I did not catch Miss Peterson's  name when we met at Montavan."  "No, wo were not formally introduced," supplemented Jean. "But  Mi*. Tormarin Was obliging enough to  pull me out of an eijjjht-foot deep  snowdrift up" in tho mountains so  we allowed that to count instead."  "What ldck!" exclaimed Nick with  fervour.  "Yes, it was rather," agreed jean,  "To bo smothored in a snowdrift isn't"  exactly, tlio, form   of    extinction   I  should chooso."  "Oh,.! meant luc3|< for Blaise," explained Nick, "Opportun.tiles of playing knlgh.t-erront are few and far between nowadays"���������regretfully.  Thoy all laughed, and then Lady  Anno carried Jean on? upstairs,  Here ubo found that a charming  bedroom, with u alUing-roon_ coimucl-  ing, had been allotted hor���������"so that  you'll have a den of your own to talco  refuge in when you'ro tired of us,"  as Lady Anno explained,  Jean felt touched   by   tlio   kindly  thought.    It takes tho understanding  hostess to admit frankly that a guest  , mmy nnmctlmea crave for the solitude  of her own company���������and to see that  she can get it.  The rooms which were to constitute  Jean's personal domain were delightfully decorated, old-world tapestries  and some beautiful old prints striking  just-the right "Tiote in conjunction  with the waxen-smooth mahogany of  Chippendale. From the bedroom,  where. a maid .was already busying  herself unstrapping the traveller's  manifold boxes, there opened off a  white-tiled bathroom frankly and hy-  gienically modern, and here Jean was  soon splashing joyfully. By the time  she had finished her bath and dressed  for dinner-she felt as though the  fatigue of the journey had slipped  from her like an outworn garment.  The ���������-. atmosphere at dinner was  charmingly;,^OTmai, and presently,  when the naeal w_as at an end, the  party of four.adjourned into the hall  for coffee. As Jean's eyes roved  round the old-fashioned, raftered  place, she was conscious of a little  intimate thrill of pleasure. With its  walls panelled'3n Jacobean oak, and  its open hearth where a roaring fire  of logs sent blue and green flames  leaping up into the chimney's cavernous mouth, it reminded her of the  great dining-hall at Beirnfels. But  here there was a pleasant air of English, cosiness, and it was abvious that  at Staple the hall had been adopted  as a living-room and furnished with  an eye to comfort. There were wide,  cushioned window-seats, and round  the  hearth,   clustered   deep,   inviting1  Says Canada Strong In Day OSJTridl  Bank Of Montreal Heads Review Situation At Bank's Annual Met tin*  chairs, while eVe_.j. y._i6ic vtSTS' u_c *������..=  tie, pleasant, home-like evidences ���������  an open book flung down here, a piece  of unfinished needlework there ��������� of  daily use and occupation.  .    <To Be Continued).  In the speeches of Sir Charles Gor- ]  don; president; and Jackson Dodds/  joint general manager, at the annual  meeting of the Bank of _ Montreal,  comment was made on the inherent  strength being exhibited by Canada  In the face of world depression, especially in regard to the banking structure of the country. Sir Charles  while declining to prophesy as to tire  immediate outlook said that taking  the long view "There is every reason  to look forward with confidence to  emerging stronger and more prosperous than ever .from, the conditions  that now prevail," and Mr. Dodds remarked, "It would be rash indeed to  speak with assurance of the prospects  of the coming year, but it is surely  permissible to say that when international confidence and co-operation are  restored, and commerce in conse.  quence improves, Canada will be  among the flrst to benefit."

Jackson Dodds, joint General Manager with W. A- Bog, in presenting  the balance sheet reviewed the progress made by the Bank during the  fiscal year. Remarking that "we  should be thankful that we in Canada are as.well off as we are," he  said business, nevertheless, was at. a  low ebb, and a halt must be called to  mounting expenditures- by federal,  provincial and municipal authorities,  as tiiese only aggravated-the situation^ Referring to the fact that the  downward movement of prices liad  reached,, record levels, during ��������������� the  year, he pointed out the Impotence of  a Central iBank in maintaining a stable price, level ��������� as demonstrated by  TJnited States experience.

Turning to  the audience he mentioned that  he had heard quite often that  Canyon people were noted for  disagreeing with one another, but  could not help remarking that if  such a splendid Christmas concert  was made possible by people disagreeing, then lie hoped he would  see some mora of ;that sort of disagreement in the Valley.  Special thanks- are due to Miss  Lister for the manner in which  she has trained the youngsters and  fixed up the costumes for their  show. It is to be hoped that  Canyon will not fall down for  someone to follow her and make  the Canyon school concert the  success in the future which it has  been for the past few seasons.  ��������� __n_ a ��������� <__'��������� ��������� __r������Mia i  a  >:��������� _t:_r<i������-_Tf"X'C������70'"������*"������:������ ���������"am _r__nnr_. _ig  Br MS-������P W)s WW^M^^S  ������  w  S  3  That your Christmas may be Merry  and full of gladn^s, bring you a full,  measure of health and success, is our  wish for you this glad season.  .Eria     5������  cCREATH  Sole agent for GAI_T COAL.

To  complete the opening proceedings  the audience were entertained* to  a lusty rendering of O Canada by  the school children.

People  of many races, black, white and yellow, speaking: a veritable babel of  j^aaguages, and of many creeds were, for the time being, brought together  as one great family to enjoy an entertainmnet to which fifteen nations  contributed and in which, all participated.  The event was a world-wide radio hook-up to commemorate an. achievement of thirty years ago which has revolutionized methods of communication,  transformed social conditions, altered our forms of entertainment and instruction, and been the means of saving countless numberss of lives.

He  was Marconi awaiting to convince an incredulous world that it was possible  to send a signal across the Atlantic Ocean by wireless telegraph. Marconi  and two assistants waited until in the earphones they heard at the appointed  minute the "click, click, click," the three dots of the letter "S" in the Morse  Code, which had been the signal agreed upon to be sent from Poldhu,  Cornwall, Engiand.  From that historic moment to December 12, 19S1, the world had been  constantly growing smaller,���������time and space were eliminated. The pressing  of a key eighteen hundred miles away had been heard in the merest fraction  of a second. In the thirty years wiiich have passed, vast strides have been  made in world communication,, but co wireless message has crossed the  Atlantic any faster than that first one of Marconi.  Today we sit in our homes before ornate radio sets and by the simple  turning of a dial shift ourselves from the music and speech of New York  to that of San Francisco; from Ottawa to Vancouver; from Edmonton to  Mexico, or, as on December 12 last, we listened to speech and music from  l������ondon, England, then Brussels, then Paris, Berlin, Rome, Warsaw, _Sew  York, Washington, Ottawa, Japan, Hawaii, Venezuela, Brazil, the Argentine.  We heard a message being transmitted from New York to San Francisco,'  from whence it was sent to Java, thence to Amsterdam, and we. heard it  being received back in New York after circling the globe in one minute and  47 seconds. We heard English., French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese  and other languages spoken.  All because Marconi's great experiment of December 12, 1901, succeeded.  The world was astounded then; it marvels still. Following that first signal  came the development of wireless telegraphy, then wireless telephony: was  made possible by the invention of the vacuum tube, and now television is just  around the corner.      The vacuum tube led to the discovery of the photoelectric cell, that marvellous sensitive little tube which made talking pictures  possible, which opens and closes doors, counts vehicles ;on the highways, and  does many other most astonishing things.  Airplanes are guided by wireless as they wing their way through space;  the wireless "SOS" call brings hel*"1 to stricken ships; the radio summons  medical or other assistance into the far fj.o_-.e_- north; Kis Majesty ths King  addresses his people in every portion of his far-flung Dominions; church  services and the finest of the world's music and other forms of entertainment are carried into the most isolated and humble home.  But as one listened on December 12 last, to the nations talking to and  entertaining each other, switching from one continent to another almost  quicker than the mind can think, the conviction grew that, great as all  these achievements are, something even greater and grander must inevitably  result from Marconi's amazing experiment. Will not this annihilation of  time and space, this breaking down of "barriers to communication between  peoples and nations, this development of a common means of expression  between peoples, also lead to the breaking down of old suspicions, prejudices  and jealousies? Shall we not learn to discard the old, mis-used word  "foreigner" and, instead, come to regard those who live under other flags,  who speak languages other than our own, and who worship at altars somewhat different from those at which we may worship, as neighbours, friends,  and brothers?  In honoring Marconi for his great achievement, may we not also hope  that over and above all the material benefits he thus conferred upon us, he  has been an effective instrument in the hands of an all-wise Providence in  promoting the brotherhood of man and the federation of the world?  Where   Children   Are   Educated  Family I_afe Destroyed  On tie Eajgt side of the Ural, tn the  neighborhood of the enormous ore depositst .of ther so-called Magnet Mountain, a commufiis tic town will arise in  the middle of the Steppes. The town  will be given the name of Magnitogorsk and will have a population of  200,000. The town must be finished in  1937. The Frankfort architect, Mr. E.  May, has drawn up the plans. It will  be built oa st spacious scale, with  many piarks. The Russian Peoples  Commissioner writes as follows:'-���������  "The dwellings for all inhabitants will  be the same. Till their 16th year, all  children will be educated in a town-  institution where the parents will be  allowed to visit them but not too frequently.

Frogs Take Place Of Money In Trade  Deal  Sir George Beharrell, prominent industrialist, of -London, England,  described how a business deal was put  through with frogs used for money.  "One of the companies I am. connected with had money laid in currency in a ��������� certain foreign country  and a complete embargo as to forwarding money to that country was  made," he said.  "By mere chance this company  came in contact with a professor of  anatomy who was importing for vivisection purposes live frogs fronts this  particular country and the change  was made from currency to frogs.  "Could anything illustrate more  clearly the lengths to which business  men have to go today in order to  carry on?"  Airship Bu!lt On Principle  Which Birds Soar  After twenty years of study of the  flight of birds J. H. Montgomery of  St.' Gabriel has apparently solved the  secret o������ the flight of birds. He lias  discovered that in the wings of every  soaring birds is a power plant, with  whtch the bird has nothing whatever  to do farther than his ability to control it. Montgomery said: "Contrary  to the prevalent view of scientists,  birds do" not fly by taking advantage  of air -currents, but their power to  soar is due to the structure of their  pinions; which are filled with thous-  sands of vortices which catch the air."  According to Montgomery, the same  principles by which birds soar could  be appiEed to a new type of airship,  which, would require no motor, but  could be regulated to fly at any speed  up to 350 miles an hour.

Tho  Lord Mayor can count upon at least  three public functions in every two  days and ho has to make n speech,  with few exceptions, at each.

London, England.���������The Morning-  Post said the agenda of the forth-  cOrnfhg Imperial Economic Conference will include the question of how  far Canada will be ready to take  British, coal in return for the wheat  she will export to Great Britain, under .the proposed wheat quota plan.  Ottawa, Ont.-���������The wheat quota-under consideration by the British Government is 15 per cent, wheat grown  in Great Britain. 70 .per cent, wheat  grown in other parts of the Empire,,  and 15 per cent, foreign-grown wheat.  These were the figures given by  Premier RyB. Bennett in an interview  following his return from London.  This Is '& coiisicLeysbiv lar^ep auota.  of. ;,Ep_p_re-grown wheat than the figures given in a.London cable; whicb  quoted. 'The Miller," official organ of  the British milling trade.."The Miller* ' forecast. the- quota which, the  British Government would propose aa  15 per cent, domestic, 55 per cent.  Dominion-grown -wheat, and 30 per  cent, foreign.  The suggestion  here is  that confusion has arisen as to the percentage  all tbe __������o______i������aH. chiefly Canada anrj  Australia, would furnish and Canada's proportion alone. Informat;cn  here is that it is estimated Canada  would furnish approximately 80 per  cent, of the Dominions' quota or  about 55 per cent, of the wbeat used  in Great Britain. This is tbougbt to  be the reason the figure 55 per cent.  has crept in.  There is known to be a considerable feeling on the part of the millers in Great Britain that the situation could better be met by a tariff  than, a quota, and substantial support in this- view is said to be found  among members of parliament. A  small tariff against foreign wheat,  giving" empire grown wheat a preference, ~is suggested sn many quarters  in England.  iJiSv.; Government '!T&': '��������� Ann ounce ."':Per-'  ��������� '^""-T.T . sohnel In Xear Future  -��������� Washington, yt_0_C- ��������� The United  States Government is expected to aa-  nounce in the immediate future the  personnel of its delegation to the  general disarmament conference at  Geneva in February.
