But this is not aH, The war caused inflation oi prices in oil commodities,  and,, of course, revenues which formerly were Adequate for provincial ami  municipal purposes were too small, and on top of higher Dominion taxation  there ha-d to be imposed greater taxation "by Provincial and municipal governments.  The effect of this taxation, is greater in Canada than In the ITuited States  because this country entered the war at the beginning, whereas tho United  Stales only came into it near the close, and after years 'during wivieiL thai  counu-y amassed great wealth in the work of supplying goods to the Allied  couau-ios which had turned their whole industrial rubric*- from works ������if peace  production to the requirements ot war.      "  Prior to the war Canada was a low taxed country, but war needs brought  about the Imposition of an Income Tax, a tax on .bau.keheo.ues., ural't-s,. notes,  etc., a tax on receipts;, taxes on matches and other commodities, an increased  rate of postage, taxes on excess profits, taxes on business turnover as; represented by sales, and sundry other taxes. The a-ecumulation of all these jsnea  has, naturally and inevitably, had an adverse* effect on Investment in industry  and for development purposes, and in. the- willingness of both foreign and  domestic money lenders to invent in Ci*������ada. Further, the necessity of in-  investing huge i=������ms in Government loans during the war resulted in the ������������������ withdrawal of hundreds of millions of dollars from other forms of investment, to  the detriment of ail business, industrial growth, and development of the  natural resources of the country.  With its tremendous accunumu.lation of wealth during the war, and the wonderful expansion in production and industrial activity since then as a direct  result of that accunsnrulation ot wealth, the United States has been enabled to  rapidly decrease Us Income Tax and lower, or entirely abrogate most of its war  taxes. This has created a great disparity in the burden of Federal taxes imposed on the people of these two countries, to the manifest disadvantage of  Canada. On the other hand, Canada compares very favorably with the United  States when Provincial State and Municipal taxation, is compared.  There is, however, a growing aemand throughout the Dominion that, if this  country is not to seriously suffer in the iorag run, g������me action must he taken to  lower the burden of Federal taxation so aa to place the Dominion on terms of  greater equality in this respect with our neighbor to the* south. Just 2iow this  is to he accomplished, and at the same time provide the Federal Government  with the revenue it must have, to meet our war obligations and current  domestic needs, is the problem.  To the solution of this problem the Dominion Government is directing its  attention, and, fortunately, the people as a whole, are taking a very keen and  increasing interest in it. This interest is made manifest in the discussions  which took place at the recent conventon of the Canadian Board of Trade, in  the publications of the Citizens' Research Institute of Canada, in the Dominion-  wide campaign recently inaugurated by the Retail Trade Bureau of Canada,  and by the resolutions adopted by the Canadian Council of Agriculture representing the organized  farmers.  While all these bodies are in agreement on some points, they, are at variance in important respects as to policies which should be adopted. All strongly  favor more economical administration, the elimination of partizanship and  politics from the business of government, reduced expenditures, and a more  careful survey of national conditions before embarking on future capital outlays, all of which will make for lower ta sal ton. But they differ when.1t comes  to the question of just what taxes should now be entirety eliminated. There are  two sides to those questions, as there are to moot issues of outstanding importance, and it will be of value to consider these in a subsequent article.  The present gratifying fact is I hat a Btep has been taken in the direction  desired by all, namely, reduction of taxation. Tlie present your has seen the  excess war postage rates wiped ont, the tax on receipts repealed, the tax on  bank cheques for small amounts removed, and a substantial reduction made in  the Income Tax. especially on smaller incomes. Furthermore, the Finance  Minister has announced that rurLiter reductions will be shortly forthcoming, and  press despatches have reported that ho has ordered n survey by departmental  olliei-.ils of the operation of the Income Tax and Sales Tax, and their'effect on  business and the country's development.

After preliminary    experiments    in  IS 2-4, three acres of hemp' were seeded in 1925 in the irrigation block at  the St. Jullen Colony, east of Calgary,  at Tilley,  Alberta. ���������;   The  three  acres  were subjected to different irrigations  though the exceptional rainfall of the  season largely equalized the effect of  these inundations.    The full results of  the experiment carried   out   -by ; ��������� the  above-named organizations, have now  been made available and are In every \  way'gratifying and encouraging.  -At harvest the' stand of hemp was  described   by   experts   as   a"  "bumper  crop" of exceptional quality. One **cl"e  was  cut and left in  bundles  on the  ground to  test the  retting -effect., .'of  exposure    during     the    "winter     and  spring. On examination in the following spring, it was found that though  the  hemp bad not been  spread,   the  outside bundles -where exposed to tht������  winter weather' had been_.sufuciently  retted:    It was concluded that if properly spread on the ground under normal    -winter    conditions,    tlie    hemp  could be sufficiently    retted   in    this  manner.    One acre was    cut,    spread  to dry  for about ten days,  andy then  shipped to a mill at Forest, Ontario.  One acre was cut and spread.'.for.retting.    It was intended 1.6 .-irrigate this  after spreading, but the unusually wet  "season  made  this   unnecessary.   This  hemp received an excellent ret, on the! divided nmong the schools  ground 'where it was grown and. was  then shipped to Forest for scutching.  Shipnionts  . from    the    two   'acres  shipped to. the mill at Forest yielded  1,075 lbs. of dressed hemp. 108 lbs. of  fine  tow, and 119 lbs.  of targed tow.  The  fibre   shipped  to  twine ./mills  at  Kitchener  was   manufactured  into   a i ment.  number of diKerent.-grades of coramer-  cial twine, for which it proved entirely satisfactory.    A total of 780 lbsv of  twine hump was produced, 450,lbs. he-!  ing grade A, 250 lbs. grade 33, and SO  lbs. dark. Immp.

"With so many boys and girls organizations those in charge should  make an effort to organize a Children's Temperance Society or Baaid  of Hope. And adults might form  a     similar    society.    Folks    howl*  they-must do evary little, job them  selves or it wont be done right.  When the average Canadian  parent was small they had to assist  with the work and very few* got  paid for doing it, either."'Nowadays all one hears is, "How much  do I get for doing it?"1* A certain  amount of work and a little pocket  money teaches the bairns to be self*  reliant, independent, useful; also  to be a better citizen.  Any girl', or boy who has been  trained to do all borts of of jobs  need never starve or be out of  v^ork. Thf bread of independence  is far sweeter than the crumbs of  charity.

Some  folks have  the crazy notion   that  were due to inefficient teaching, aad  insufficient supervision   of  teachers,  *s?hi!e 25 per,cent, were due to illness,  change of school, social and economic  causes. The latter two causes and part  of the first can largely be prevented.  Inability for the most part is due to  low nativementality. The. pupil has  not intelligence sufficiently high to  cover the work ira the prescribed time.  There isj-no-,'cure.for this .so we taay  dismiss It; here , That part of .the retardation problem must endure. Inability may be due, however, to defective eye sight or hearing or general  physical debility. These things can be  aeeurateSy tested an-d remedies broiighi  about, for many of them.  There is one aspect of the problem  that must be discussed hers. We say  a child Sis chronologically retarded,  when he is belo^r his . normal age  grade. But if the cause of his retardation is low mentality, he may not be  below his proper mental grade. Take  the example o������ pupil "B" quoted in the  survey. lie is ever 16 vears_ old and  has the mental.capabilities of the average 18.year old child. Ke is in. Grade  VIII.. According .'.to age he should be  in Grade X��������� but according to his meat'  taiity oc hibs "emntal age" he should"  -������w9 in Grade .-.-VII.   **e *p not retarded  ^L.*m*r*^**W-fc������W������������*^r._. mf*4l1* .**tt*,**%3*     JtO.

(How to Measure in Education, .gpages..,"! 7-78).  To eliminate the second cause of retardation the .survey recommends the  appointmentof more inspectors and  Increased-academic and' professional  training requirements .for teachers  The standard of B. C, teachers is-con-  siderably above that of any of tho  other Western provinces and wilL continue to be raised. Provision is made  for teachers to attend university dur������  ing summer vacation and secure higher, grade certificates. This increased  efficiency ...is- bound to result iu a. -sset  financial gain to the province. .-  The main cure for retardation Is-to  be found inv - a special class in - the  school; When it Is found that a pupil  Is retarded.: it will usually be Sound,  that one or two subjects ure the entire cause of his "failure to keep the  pace.    The- siirvey advocates "Qppor-  Dac&wara subjects, mere are many  other essential remedies but these are  regarded as most essential  The -Junior high school does not  claim to be a cure for retardation but  it will go some distance towards .its  elimination,.- The foundations, of that  school are based on those things that  will prevent retardation. The oppor-r  tunity classes are the main cure for  retardation amd they are - an integral  part of the middle school. .

'    TP'^-f:^:l-iyi -tf^-  pupil is behind his regular grade, and  this may be due to any one or ^several  of a variety of causes, some of which  can he prevented. When a pupil is behind his normal grade he is said to be  retarded. If a-pupi! takes more than;  eight years to cover eight grades it  means that part of that time he is being re-taught some material that he  has already covered. ���������.".'-  The .survey commission considered  .pyer 18,000 cases in the schools of B.C.,  and found that ^'nearly 54 per cent, of  elementary school pupils and nearly  51 per cent, of the high schfool pupils''^  are behind the grade they should be *Hn  according to their age. They are said  to he chronologically retarded. The  average retardation per pupil Ih the  elementary schools was 9.03 months  The average pupil was 9.03 months  behind his normal grade standard.  This was greater in rural schools than  In city'schools and greater in the high  er" grades than In the lower. Before  taking up the causes and cures of retardation lot m������ show the costs.  -.'  The Coats In Dollars and Cents '  In 1924 the net coat of elementary  education in B.������C. was $6,048^091,33,  and the number of pupils 86,316, making an average coat of about $7.0 per  pupil per year of two terms. '/In that  year the total retardation in B. C,  schools was 16,250 terms. At a cost of  ?3B per term, retardation in the elementary sohools cost B, O. $568,750.  We will find in discussing the causes  that about KO per cent, ot the present  retardation can be prevented. That  means that about $800,000 -of our retardation cob Lb can be eliminated.  Surely any measures that will,, save  B.

If  a boy la chronolq-glcelly retarded It  may bo duo to Inability, Illness, changing schools, social attractions, Irregular attendance, inadequate teaching  and QupervlBlon of teach ore, late atart-  laag, lack of effort or a combination of  tboiio or othor cnuHoti. In an Intonuo  U iiAumnniiii'iii oi! i'i'i caucs the tma-.vuy,  working with a number of school prin-  cipiilu, decided that only about 37%  per cent,  of the rctnrdatloaa wan duo  reach. their normal grade. By special  instruction and : assistance they can  catch, up. in these subjects in which  they have been weak.  "The principal cures then, for the remediable part of retardation, are to-*be  found in���������1. Adequate medical examination and supervision to see that the  pupil has a good body; 2.

In Eggleton's Home  A hutler; the ancient one whose  years seemed to identify him with  the old house, brought word" that.Mi\  Eggleston would join them shortly,  it they would be pleased to wait. Brandon, when the old man had disappeared noiselessly, held out his cigarette case to Joanna. .. She shook her  head.  "No, not in here." she said. "Somehow, it uoesntt seem as if-������������������; as it  one smoked! iu this house,, does it?"  "That is a curious feeling," he observed. "I ��������� don't imagine ^ny esteemed uncle smokes them, but I  fancy -he is not unused to thent-Sur-e-  ly 3rou would nat adopt a pose of  innocence of"them because of a vision-  ary Regard for your banker's tastes?"  "N6,iT she replied, "I wouldn't do  that. But, just the same, I don't want  to smoke.  She moved away from the table and  to a window. Brandon, eyeing her  clorely, saw that as she ca*ossed the  room her glance fell... again on the  painting over ������he fireplace. She  looked from the window out into the  avenue, for a minute or two, then  turned suddenly and went directly up  to the fireplace. The action -was as if  in response to some occult summons  froan the girl who looked down so  serenely  from the  canvas. ���������.  Joanna rested her hand oh the  mantel ledge and gazed, up into the  face in the-portrait. It���������was a picture  that anight have amused her, with its  prim, voluminous skirts from under  Which just a boot toe peeped; its leg  o* mutton sleeves and absurdly tiny  waist that almost shrieked aloud of  the corsets of yesterday.

C  "As your banker,"    Eggleston    returned, "you must give me my instructions."  W  i.\  i\t\i\t  would have laughed at, as at a school  day valontino. To her there never  had bceai anything quite so ridiculously funny as amy sort of fashion that  had become passe���������clothes, girls or  conventions.  But Brandon, who had dropped"his  cigarette iaato a solid sold ash tray  aud moved soi'tly to one side of tho  room whore,,under pretense of oxam-  ining a book, he might furtively  watch tho girl ait tho fireplace saw  laothing of amusement in her face.  Insteurt he Tamclod thai iionio or the  willfulness of tho girl in the painting hud reaehod down to tho other.  "Do you know who she ia���������I mean,  who who was?" Tho volco scorned to  floiil. gently on the Htlllnoss of the  room.  ,...-.  Brandon didn't naaswor* at, oneo.  Joanna did not notice his sllonco.  "Sho fascinates me," sho said, still  dreamily. "There i* something about  her faco that rointndfl mo of someone  ���������I d.-iaa't know who. It makes mo  want 1.0  think."  There was n soaiaad at. the door,  which opened by Iho old butlor.  TCgglottlon entered the room, Brandon  inn do no .sign. Ho glancod froan tho  girl to tho hunker, and I hem watched  .them both, ^  V'cnley-ton halted abruptly *whon ho  saw Joanna and that who -was lost in  Ing.    IIo  looked* at Ba*������ndon, a mil to  irriuiry   hi   bin   r-yon.   Brandon   whoolr  .his head.'. Eggleston stood, quietly,  his head lowered a bit so that his  study of tho girl at the fireplace,  whose back was partly- turned to him,  had the offset of an inner as woll as  outward  scrutiny^  Suddenly, as if she were startled,  Joanna wheeled*.and met the banker's  stare. A^ hand fluttered nervously to  her breast. For a brief moment she  trembled as it f-Lightened. "I kaev,*  ���������that you were watching me!" she  ba-eathed.  Brandon dropped his book.  "The atmosphere is charged.", he  remarked dryly. "I am confronted  -with nioods. Miss Maimers refuses  to smoke despite the fact that oh -eur  way here she stopped to buy a charmingly expehsive> holder ornamented  with,' emeraldsl She found the room  too forbidding. Now my uncle is  mysteriouslyv detached*." To Eggleston  he continued: -'I hope your luncheon  is not to be a heavy . affair!"  Joanna was confused. She wanted  to refute that accusation that it Was  the house of her host tha oppressed  her.'/ ���������'...:���������  Eggleson rescued her with a stiff,  formal greeting that ignored Brandon's allusions.  Joanna maae a valiant effort to  throw off the shyness that constantly  threatened her in the presence of the  great banker who knew the secret ot  her nvystery. She knew, instinctively,  that she had not been asked to visit  him, at his home, without some very  definite reason. But y/ha'tever this  reason might be, she was convinced  that it, also, would be' kept from her.  Eggleston's phrases were formal,  cold; yet, now and theai, she was sure  she detected something in hi'3' manner-��������� that was: nuite all that she  could determine about it, that it was,  simply, "something," As yet the mind  of Miss Twenty-seven, had' net he-  conie expertly analytical,"  "I understand,-*; the banker saio,  >vhen they had taken their places at  the- tahle in a massive dining room���������  a room as sombre as the library which  throned the girl of the painting���������^  "that you were definitely launched last  night, and that you were quite a success. That is what my nephew, here,  has given me to understand."  "it was glorious!" Joanna agreed.  "Miss Coutant is very good to me."  "You have not, then, formed any  substantial ambitions. You are the  trustee of a. fortune. 1 am interested  In your immediate future."  Jcanna looked up quickly. "1  should bo willing to follow any instruction you give me," she said,  quietly. "If you give me none, I can  do nothing else but enjoy myself according to my own inclinations. 1  have always wanted little things that  I couldn't have. Now that I may have  the big ones that tiro better, I shah  simply have them���������that's all I can  do, it: seems."  "As your banker," Eggleston returned, "I am wondering iff since that  ia your inclination, some of your se-  cua-ttios should not be turned into  cash. Already you have expcaided  some .$130,000. That is within a fow  dnys. If you continue at that rate  you will need actual money. You must  glvo me my instaaicttons."  Joanna saw that Brandon was  watching her. furtively. She felt tho  need of a defense, but, Instead',  plunged  Into an  offensive.  "I aim going to spend a groat deal  of mouey," she said. "There arc so  many thiaags to buy, and money doosn'r.  neom to count for much in Miss (lou-  t ant's world." So wan silent for a mo-  mont,  then asked  suddenly:  Not very far," he replied, "when  entrusted tox the three companions,  Vanity, Extravagance, and" Desire.  They, I belive arc the ������?hief advisees  of the young women of this day."  "Are they?" Joanna asked earnestly. "I have always? found that my  chief fileiid.3 were Misunderstanding,  Distrust and Envy." '  A great modern hanker, a despot  whose whim' echoed as thunder  through the marts of finance, and a  modern', younger man, whose pastime  was the baffling of feminine artifice,  looked across tlieir table into the  fresh, young, modern face of a girl  who' was -just blossoming out ���������irom  Miss Twenty-seven of the. silks. The  banker remembered, strangely, ~& vis-  Ion of glaring legs and flamboyant  rouge that cam a awkwardly through  his office door with the air of one who  was . being trapped. Brandon remembered the girl who had "no place to  go," except to her silk counter or her  rooming houle. ^ And  Joanna  under  stood why they looked at her.  i-  (To Be  jGiiUl.llU.t3U J  Brings  ������.   a   a**"**  1X1   W  1   N    Br���������  ise    and ��������� Comfort  Suffeaer at Once  to    the  V#-'  V  evi e���������  eases ended in death!
