Tliat progress is based aiot only on the great variety,  extent and richness oil this country's natural resoaarces, but is founded an the  renewed i'aith of Canadians iaa their Dominion and in the confidence they  have in themselves, a faith and confidence bora largely of the really tremendous a enlevements, of. Canada during- tlae years of the Great War. In-that  titanic struggle the people of Canada showed wonderful energy, -displayed  great initiative, unsurpassed organizing1 ability, and hitherto undreamed vl  powers and strength. Thrown to a large extent upon its own resources^'financial, and otheiwise, the Dominion courageously faced ail problems and did 30  with marked success.  Few couiati-ies, if any, weathered the stormy days and difficult conditions  a..f the after-the-war and reconstruction years as successfully as did this-  Dominion. Canadians became coa'iscious for the first timet of their national  strength; the people discovered their national soul. Their former doaahts and  timidities, their seli'-de^reciation, aaid what has commonly heen termed their  trafercoiity complex, disappeared, and has been replaced by courage, conil-  den.ee and superb faith.  In former years it is true Canadians had saiceessfully grappled with  large and difficult domestic prohlems, "but, in these more recent years, the  Dominion has b*?klly taken its place in the world arena. Its position today in  in the Councils of ti:e League of Nations is an outstanding one;, its place  in the Commonwealth of British Kations is strong and assured. The score  or more nations constituting the Pan-American Union, including the United  World Wheat Pool Conference  Will Be Held In Itegina.

The conference wall be held in Regina, June 5, 6 and 7, and it is expected all the important wheat exporting* countries of thc world will be  represented.

For 15 minutes an official of  the Manitoba Government Telephone  System conversed with a member- ot  the LiOndon postal telephones.- So clear  was the reception that the London  official complained of the lap-tap of  the telegraph ticker in the Winnipeg  office.   - -,_-,,  "'For heaven's sake stop that telegraph ticker ih>ot^ is deaf-I  ening,"  he 'eaid" to  William  Walton,���������!  long distance chief of the X-Janitoba  telephones.

NewAntkAircraft Gun  States and the countries of  -h  Union, while other nations arc encouraging the establishment-off--direct-diplomatic representation with this country.  But even yet it is, doubtful if many Canadians fully realize the rapid  growth and steadily increasing power of their own country, because, as a  rule, the average citizen pays httle attention to so-called dry statistics in  which the g-rowth of a country is set forth. In a recent speech at Winnipeg*,  Mi*. K. W. Beatty, president of the C.FtR., succinctly and impressively cet  forth a few facts, which will bear repeating. He noted, for example, the  following;  Ever j' working day last year Canadians took from tlieir forests, products valued at $1,500,*000.  From mines they took SSS0,000 daily.  Every working day they increased their capacity for manufacturing pulp  and paper by 1,000 tons. Canada now manufactures one-third of the .world's  requirements* of newsprint.  Every working day they added 700 horsepower in hydro-electric energy  to the power already installed, ard at the same time began work that will  add 1,000 h.p. every day in the first six months of 1928.  Canada's export trade last year, with less than 10,000,006 people, was  eqtaai to Lhe export trade of the United States, when the latter country had a  population of 75,000,00;>.  Commenting on these ancl other statements in Mr. Beatty's striking sur-  vey, ai Winnipeg paper asks: "Is it any wonder that'in the past two years  the Canadian people have been putting ������200,000 into the savings hanks every  banking day, increasing deposits in other financial instiutions correspondingly, investing* in life insurance at the same relative rate, buying back  millions iu securities formerly held in Great Britain ancl Europe, providing  almost unlimited capital for sound industrial enterprises, and have acquired a  '.spirit of solid confidence and f,e3f-reliance?"  Nor is it surprising that more people are emigrating from tlie British  Isles to Canada than to any other country, many thousands more than to  Australia. , ���������  Speaking* at the opening ol the great 5,500,000 bushel terminal elevator  just completed by the United Grain Growers at Port Arthur, Pi*esident T. A.  Ci-orai- predicted that, while Canada was now producing approximately 500,-  000,000 bushels of wheat annually, and is today the world's'greatest wheat  <>>.-port>ng- country, production would be further increased .until this Dominion would be producing one billion bushels of wheat annually.  And the thounght i'or Canadians to keep over in their minds,  and to  profit by, is that Canada is only just beginning to get into its stride.  trouble, but was simply run down  from overwork.

MaoLeao put ii briefly  and clearly in his excellent speech  in the Leffas'atiire the. wt'bs������r day,  He admitted at the outset that  Iii ber a i governments had not al  ways been successful in balancing  their budgets���������due to special circumstances by no means inimical  to the public's interest���������but their  curreaat expenditures invaribly had  balanced current revenuea  Heavy capital expenditures out  of revenue in some years, however,  had occasioned a certain deficit.  But these have been small com  pared with the situation whioh  confronted the Province when the  present Opposition was in omce.  For instance, in 1912-1913. there  was a deficit of nearly $3,000,000;  In 1913 1914 the debit balance was  no   less  than ������5,200,000���������and   the  Province's   population   then    only  400,000.    In   four  years,  in   fact.  Conservative      deficits      averaged  $4,000,000     annually.       As      th������  Premier   pointed   but.    this   is   a  record of financial mismanagement  unequalled   in   any other  part   of  *u~a t? ..*:���������  Nor should it be forgotten that  at oiae time the former GJ-overmnent  borrowed ������5,000,000 to meet a  deficit. It was this proceeding  that earned for B..G. bonds the  title���������deficit bonds. This coudi  tion feoed the present regime when  it   took   office   at the end of 1916.  How successfully it dealt with it  is explained by the Province's high  credit ;atis������g.  CITIZEN.

.1. The Growth Of the Church Of
God Is Sure: It Depends Upon God,
verses 2G-29. A deilnitidn of the
phraaae, the Kingdom of God, can only
be gleaned by studying the various
wfiys in which Jesus ttsed it. In His
parables wclekrn that it has to do
with man's spiritual natures -and*possibilities, his inner life. We might define it as the reign of God in the
hearts of men: "The Kingdom of God
is within you," said Jesus.
There is no geography in the Kins:-
dom of God, On" an ancient- Syrian
fragment the familiar words of Luke
1.33 read, "and to Has Kingdom there
shall be no frontier!': it ic for all the
vyorld and for every creature. -There
is no chronology in the Kingdom of
God; it is both present and future. As
Alexander Maclaren writes: ''It is
present wherever wills how to God;
it is future as to ���complete' realisation,
in a heaven from whence it comes and
to which, like its King, it belongs even
while on earth." In the earthly province of the Kingdom its. subjects are
fighting the good fight; in the heavenly province they have gained their
crowns of righteousness. :    '
A parable is a story told for the
purpose of illustrating a truth. The
parable of "The Seed Growing Secretly," or of "The Blade, the Ear, the
Full Coa-n," as it is also sometimes
called, portrays the slow but sure
growth of the Kingdom of God in the
hearts of men, "So is the Kingdom
of God," thus Jesus begins his parable. That is, what yota see to be God's
method of working in nature is also
His method of working in lhe spiritual realm. So is the Kingdom of God,
as if man should cast seed upon the
earth (as Jesus and tlie Apostles and
His later followers have implanted the
word of God in men's hearts); and
should sleep and rise night and day,
that is,' lead his customary life, leaving the result of the sowing with God;
and tho seed should spring tap and
grow, he Imoweth not how. "The
Kingdom of God cometh not with
observation." Jesus told thc Pharisees.

Hia gray  beard was tangled and knotted, but  his eyes were young* still, and; although generally half closed, aa if the  light hurt tltffem, capable of seeing all  that was happening. Simeon had the  appoaranco of a floWer that lias grown  ntrlngy and palo for lack of light, or  a potato thait has lain lav a forgotten  combr of Lhe cellar. He fell at once  to talking, not wishing to lose nny of  the precious hours of conversation, remembering that tho loug night w������a  coming wherein no mam would be  foiaaid to whom ho coxala talk.

Yoti know- the  story, don't you, Mrs. McMann, of  how.jthe frogs was coaxed to go irr  for one day to the pond, and promised  they would sure get out tomorrow?''  "Oh shut up, Sim, and eat your supper���������I can't be bothered to listen to  you."       .  Helmi looked up quickly. "I like  Sim's talk,? she said, "he says good  words."*  "He's just an old plaster, Helmy,  and would rather talk "than est if he  can getanyone to listen to him. He's  like the canal-boat back home���������the  engine always had to stop when the  whistle blew���������that's Sim."  "But I like it," Helmi said again;  "He talks kind. Tell me about the  frogs, Sim."  "Some day I'll come to see you, an'  I'll tell you, Helmi,^ Sim spoke with  j dignity now. He   had   been   assailed  professionally and could not recover  all at once. ���������-?'?"'!  "He's trying to bum a, meal, Het-  my," said Mrs. McMann brutally:!"!  know him."  "Come on Sunday for dinner witiji  me;?Sim, axid then you can tell me."  Sim nodded gratefully.  "It is the long black nights, Helmi,  black without a star, silent, empty,  not a voice, not even:a dog-bark. I  have been a night-watchman for ten  years-���������no wonder I have a cravin' for  voices and friends. Yes, I will come,  Helmi, and thank yoti for being so  kind."  Helmi's heart grew tender as she  thought of the lonely old man sitting-  alone in the long dark night, stark  ���������with silence; for although she had  been only two weeks alone, she knew  what loneliness and fear a. night can  hold when one lies open-eyed, staring  into the black unanswering depths,  wondering, wondering.

There is-no.trouble in getting the little ones to take them and  they of ten prevent an illness if taken  in time. My first baby is now, at the  age of four and a half years, a picture of health, and any nine-months-  old baby Is also well and happy.
