Lord,   Willingdon    Will    Keep    Office  Work Separate From Home* Life  Lord Willingdon, the new governor-  general of Canada, has announced that  he will. be. at-his office at the Parliament Buildings at Ottawa daily at.  eleven o'clock to transact official business. -���������        ' ���������>  The  significance  of  this  announcement lies in its novelty -so far as the  Ottawa precedent is coneernednTere-  tofore   the   governors   used   their   uptown offices but little.   They have been  in   the  habit  of  having  official   documents sent to RideauHall, the official  residence.       That    practice     entailed  some loss of time and embarrassment  when speed was a factor.  .,-  Lord Willingdon's    departure    from  accepted routine suggests that he proposes to-inject business methods into  an office which many people regard, as  more     ornamental   * than      practical.  There   is nevertheless,' quite- a lot.of  work   devolving   upon   the   govornoiv  general in connection with affairs of  state.    His signature to documents'Js  essential.   According to the new representative of the King, those who have  business   to   transact,   with   him   will  know where to find him.    He does not-,  believe in involving his   home life ih  the details of his office.    That is the  way     most    efficient     executives     do-  things,    tt is a good sign.  Accepting Prof. Irving Fisher's e'sti-,  mate;of average value to the state "of  $3,000 for each productive citizen,"we  may logically conclude that it wpuld-  ."Jpparently be sound business to expend up to this amount upon the maintenance, education and training ot the.  native-born child until it reaches the  productive age, or, in order to compensate for a falling birth rate, or to  speed jip settlement, u-jTon propoganda  and other effort to transplant in Canada an acceptable perron of productive age from another country. Records show that since 1870 we have  brought somewhat over 4% million  people to Canada at a direct cost tp  the government of 37 million dollars.  Estimating the expenditure of the railways, provinces and other active agencies at an additional 45 million dollars,  the_ aggregate cost would: be 82 million dollars, or an average cost per  head of less than $20. Has Canada  ever .-.pent money more advantageously? Is it conceivable that any national  investment could possibly yield greater returns? y   ,t  It is instructive to contemplate the  unfriendly attitude of European nations towards the emigration of their  possessions. No matter how fierce tne  economic pressure, how wid������e-spreatf  unemployment and distress, no progressive nation deliberately promotes  emigration to evacuate dbvious surplus population. There is, on the contrary, a keen appreciation of the potential value to the state of the vital  asset, and nations will go to alniost  any lengths and incur the most, fantastic expenditure on relief, to preserve  this. precious asset intact during periods of economic stress, in the hope ot  the unemployed population being- ultimately absorbed in gainful production.  The colonization problem in Canada is not in any sense a class problem. Every citizen, irrespective oi  occupation, has a direct financial interest" in its effective solution. If every  class of the community would intelligently study the. effect of an increased  producing population upon its own fortunes, we would speedily create- a  favorable mass, opinion on this subject.

A year's expei'iment with a tiny  mercury vapor lamp throwing out ultra-violet rays has just been successfully concluded there.  The secretary said the violet-ray  treatment had been successfully us"ed  in cases of threatened total blindness,  the eye trouble in these instances being due to tubei'cular disease.

On this we have no definite  information. When Mr. Horsley  discussed that feature a year ago  he placed the charge at about $3  pe3 drop���������though to the Review  this looks a little too low, and  certainly would not apply -where  only thaee or four lights might be  required.  It would look to us, however,  that where che village if just going  in for light, and with, say, 100  premises to be wired, at this time  of year when electrical work is  scarce, some reputable firm would  make"a very close price if it were  assured all the work in town.  Compulsory Co-Operation  A Likely Road Policy  Another satisfactory   announce*  ment from  the  provincial  capital  last week was made ���������by  Hon.   W.  H. Sutherland, minister of   public  works, who states that the amount  of   money  accumulated  from   the  gasoline tax, along  with   the  province's share of the  motor licenses,  is now  sufficient   ;o   take   care of  principal and interest payments on  a loan of $6,000,000,   and  permission to borrow this eum over a term  of years-will be asked at the sitting  of the legislature, aud will be spent  over a   peroid   of   three   years   on  what might be   termed   new highways or needed diversions of existing roads.  This is excellent business and  now that the roads in the coast  districts are well taken care pf  Creston electoral district's share of  the borrowing should be ample to  put the road from Goatfell to  Kuskanook in the shape to defy  criticism by any well balanced  autoist.  Let There be Light  Discredits the Village  No better example of how electric light is prized could be furnished than in connection with the  erection of Creston's new curling  rink.  A Delco plant lias been purchased at some cost to illuminate the  rink', which at best will not run  more than six weeks. The light  will be used six nights a week for  about four hours each night. In  other words, in order that 48 men,  snore or less, may conveniently curl  1150 hours per year the curling club  finds it needful t5 have electricity,  and is not averse to spending the  money necessary to have the white  illuminant.  And yet over 500 residents within the village occupy their homes  or places of business for an average  of, say, four hours 365 days in the  year���������1500 hours���������and are content  to get along with the old reliable  kerosene or gasoline���������and would  have folks believe this is one of the  best little towns in the. interior. If  ever there was a place that needed  LiIG-HT it surely must be Creston.  Bditob Review:,  SlB,���������I read in your issue of the  10th   December   of   the   proposed  compulsory law,, and would like   to  ask how the  vote is to   be taken;  whether there will be a real pleb  iscite  taken, or will the  law  only  effect the Okauagan. growers.    Or  will it be a provincial law, and will  each local  fruit district just vote  on the measure. If it is to effect all  the growers in  the province then  they should all have a vote, and not  just call for a show  of  hands at a  meeting of the Associated Growers  where  they   are  all   patrons,   and  send in the result as   a  representa  fcive vote of the growers.  Is it not possible "that we may  not always have honest,,-conscientious men at the head of the organ-  ziatiou. In that eve^t what will  be the result.  I venture it will be easier to get  the law passed than to get it  repealed. I feel sure that not  many will like to be compelled to  hand their fruit over to anyone to  seii regardless of price, and have  no right to sell his fruit where and  when it suits him best. It is a  matter of J great importance to  everyone and should be given  careful consideration. FAIR PI AY.

Printed 'But^^-.-^WT-^ps, &t The Review  A Municipal Enterprise  In order that it may do the  greatest good to the greatest number of residents it is essential that  the electric light plant be a municipal undertaking.  On the west side of the town the  residences are. scattered and if a  private company has to do the  work it would be hardly fair  to ask them to give a service into  an area that must of necessity be  unprofitable not only now, but for  the immediate future as well.  Everybody should enjoy the advantage of electricity, and should  any loss havd to bo taken in giving  the service tp all points in the  incorporated area the deficit oan  be set off against an adequate  street lighting system that oan be  pat ii������ whero the village ovvna  its own plant.  It is pleasing, too. to know that  Cr*-flfcon has resident locally a man  with much experience with tho  sort of plant in proposed! to install,  and due to property and family  ties could tako on tho position of  sn r>(_ riii tend ent at great advantage  to tho village���������financially as well  uh in tho matter of giving service  that IiIh home town can he proud of.

C.  80.  ar Oh Rheumatism  .':***:    :-  A.  National  Literature  Greatness in a nation is to be found in something more than its might  as a military or naval power, or in its vast possessions, its financial strength,  its industrial development, its world-wide trade and commerce. True greatness is to be found ia something more���������than even the health and, physical'**  fitness of its people, their educational attainments, their progressive-  ness. Real greatness in a nation is to be found in things of a less tangible  nature as revealed in the sentiment, the spirit, the inherent character of the  people.   In these are to be found the soul of a nation.  The nobility of character of a people, the soul of'a nation is reflected in  its art, its literature, whether of poetry of prose, its attitude towards religious  observances, its sympathetic care of the unfortunate and afflicted..  The greatness of Britain is seen just as truly iu the works of Shakespeare, Milton, Bunyan, Tennyson, Scott and Burns as it is in the deeds of  Nelson, Drake, Wellington, Wolfe or Clive. Indeed, it has? bee^n such men  as those in the first mentioned group who have been the inspiration of  those in the second group. The poets and writers "of Britain have Interpreted  the spirit of the races, have caught .and aroused the finest and. noblest instincts of their fellow men, have lifted high a banner under which Britons  the world over have been inspired to serve with unselfish, undying devotion.  After the passage of centuries the g^atness and glory of ancionl  ���������greece and Rome rests not upon ihe mighty achievements of their warriors  but upon the beauty and power of their great authors, poets and artists.  Their works still live and. are an inspiration to the world, wfiile the achievements of the warriors have long since crumbled into dust.  A young and still largely undeveloped country like Canada is naturally  deeply concerned with material things. It is a country in the making, with  a comparatively small population scattered over an immense territory. As  a nation it has only recently passed the half century mark. Its history is yet  to be made. The years that have passed have b**fen creditable j-ears, atid in;  the fateful years of the Great War, Canada tested and- proved the character of its people. Great material advancement has been recorded; progress is  the national watchword.  But what of the Canada of the future? Are the Canadian people to  be content with ��������� a form of national greatness based solely on increasing  population, greater accumulations of wealth, an enrichment in things material,,  or do Canadians covet for their country a greatness which will include those  olh6r and less tangible, but infinitely less perishable, assets of a fine und  lofty literature to guide and  inspire generations yet unborn?  We believe Canadians do, aspire to these higher things, and this belief is supported by a growing recognition on the part of press and people of  the "importance of encouraging the development of a strong and worthwhile  Canadian literature. One concrete evidence of this is found in the increasing interest taken in Canadian books, Canadian poetry, Canadian art and  music. Canadian authors' or Canadian book week has just been observed,  and observed more generally than in any previous year. In a strictly material  sense the surface idea may be to promote the sale of books by Canadian  authors and publishers, but the main,, the underlying idea is to thus provide-  encouragement to Canada's native born writers and poets, and to make possible a Canadian literature which will be a source of national pride, inspiration and strength.  Canada proved "its greatness during the Great War not alone in the  trenches, or at Vimy Ridge, or in the making of munitions, the, raising of  foodstuffs, the financing of huge undertakings, or in the self-sacrifice of-its  people. Of all the nations in the world, Canada at the same time prepared-  the finest pictorial record of the war by leading artists. This Dominion's  War Memorial Pictures are without a peer in the world. It is a collection of  unsurpassed historical value and beauty, not a glorification' of war, but a  pictorial history to acquaint future generations of Canadians with the hero-  Ism, the steadfastness, the self-sacrifice' of our people, and ��������� to inspire  them to cultivate and maintain those qualities and virtues which make for  tnif .national strength and greatness.  And it was a Canadian who produced the finest piece of poetry tp havo  lis  inspiration in the Great War.���������Colonel McCrae's "In  Flanders Fields/'���������  a  n'**\-*?r  dying message to  the  people of Canada to hold-on high the torch  of freedom and keep the faith for which their sons heroically fought and died.

These data  will be used as a basis of scientific  studies to determine better methods  for its treatment and cure.  Safety Of Railway Travel  Only Small   Percentage   of  Accidents  Occur on Canadian Reads  The safety of railway travel in Canada is again shown in a report issued  by the Dominion Bureau of Statistic::,  covering the year 1925. For every billion miles travelled by passengers In  .jthat year only 1.7 were killed and 127.-  5 injured, in other words there were  five passengers killed in train accidents  in 1925 and 374 injured out of a total  of 41,458,084 passengers carried a distance of 2,910,760,047 miles, or one  passenger killed to every 8^4 billion  carried and one injured out of every  110,000 carried.

Linking Empire By Radio  Project Characterized   as  Dream   Will  Soon be Accomplished  ^ The long talked of linking up of the  British Empire,''* a project that was  only recently characterized as a dream,  is expected to be accomplished within  the next few months with, the inauguration of four imperial beam wireless stations in Great Britain. Two of  these, at Bodmin and "Bridgewater* will  communicate with Canada and. Sou^th  Africa, respectively, and two others at  Grimsby and Skegness, will span the  seas to.Australia and India.

Thousands of dollars havo been vainly  spent upon remedies for asthma and  seldom, if ever, with, any relief. Dr. J.  D.

Origin Of Old Saying  "No room to swing ly^/aat," is an old  naval phrase which does not refer to  a feline.
