The best amateur dramatic offering  Oreston has seen in several seasons  was presented at ttse Grand on Monday night when the |Canyon Players  appeared in a rollicking three-act  comedy, "A Pain* Married Man*'  which they had previously staged at  the Community Hall, Canyon, the  week previous.

And as the aforesaid "too, much  mother-in-law" Mrs. Hickey, as Mrs.  Dean, lived up to her reputation  splendidly throughout the entire three  acts. During her brief existence as  Prof. "Wise's first wife Miss Helen McRobb, ae Zoie Dean, proved herself a  chip ofif the? old? block? and gave a  spirited performance of the modern  bride sometimes on the lookout for  something better in the nnati-imonial  market.

Mawson as Dr. Graham was a great  favorite with the crowd in his second  venture into and out of matrimony,  with M**s. Dean as wife number two.  Myles Hurl as Billy Blake, the carefree college student and disappointed  loveK who goes cowpunching in  Arizona to forget bis sorrows, was  equally at home in the sober and  lighter lines of his part, and gave a  portrayal of this rote seldom equalled  by amateur talent.  Roy Browell as "Jupiter,' 'the negro  "servant, was the droit type of colored  handyman, and displayed equal versatility in the lighter parts as well as in  the more serions side of his effort.  His cradle lullaby effott in the third  act was irresistible,  Interest in the entertainment was  Well maintained with musical numbers before the curtain went up as  well as between acts. Miss Lily Cook  and Will Ridd contributed piano  duetts in talented fashion, and there  were vocal numbers by Messrs. Jas.  Bateman, Jeff Knott, A.

In clear*, bright Aluminum  ians  re  us^r  r - *  During- the years that have elapsed, since the war, unemployment conditions in Great Britain have been thc subject of much discussion, and in no  country has greater attention heen paid to them than in the United States.  Scores of writers across the line have professed to see in the British.situation,  with its large army of the unemployed, the dole system, and the great strikes  and general industrial upheaval aud labor unrest, the beginning- of the end for  Great Britain in its world leadership m finanee, manufacturing1, shipping- aud  Commerce.  But the Old ILand has weathered the many severe storms with remark-  ftbic success, has steadily increased employment, re-established its great  industries on a peace-time basis, balanced its budget, and ia paying off its  huge national debt. Its position at home and abroad continues to improve  from year to year.  Canada, too, had a hard struggle in the years immediately following the  war, though nothing like what Groat Britain experienced. Nevertheless, for a  number of years business in Canada was depressed aud there was a considerable volume of unemployed. At the same time business conditions in the  United States were brisk, employment plentiful, production was proceeding  at top speed, wages were high, and the -whole world was paying financial tribute to it as an outcome of the war. As a result thousands of Canadians emigrated to the States, and throughout this Dominion some sharp contrasts were  drawn between conditions here, and to the south, always to the disadvantage  of Canada.  Within the last year or two a marked change has taken, place, and today  there is more unemployment in the United States both in the aggregate and in  proportion to population than there is in either Canada or Great Britain.

Exporting Rubber Products  Canada    Is     Now    Fourth     ltubber  Manufacturing Country Of  World  Canada has now become the fourth  rubber manufacturing country of the  world, exporting rubber products to  the value of "$30,000,000 annually,  though the raw product comes from  countries to which the Dominion is  exporting the manufactured commodity, said Hon. James Malcolm,  Minister of Trade and Commerce at  the annual banquet of the Canadian  Rubber Association in Montreal.

J  Vo^rt*  all     ���������������>.������.  x&cc, ine situation in the l. nixeci States ts Decerning so serious as to call rror  most serious consideration by Congress and tlae various State Governments.  The "Department of Labor at Washington estimates there are four million people out of work at present, and the Industrial Commissioner of New-  reports 500,000 oot of work in that State alone. Conditions of employment in  New York State are officially stated to be the worst since 1921, while Senator  Copeland declares there are more people out of work in New York City than  at any time since 1914.  Contrasting the United States with Great Britain, it is seen that New  York State alone has half as many unemployed as the United Kingdom despite the fact that the latter has four tithes the population. Or taking the whole  United States with two and one-half times the population of the United Kingdom, it is seen there is four times the number of unemployed in the States  that there are in Great Britain.  While unemployment has been increasing in tlie United States in recent  years until it has now reached a point where the National City Bank of New  York reports 500,000 out of work in that State alone. Conditions of employment in New York State are officially stated to be the worst since 1921,  while Senator Copeland declares there are more people out of work in New  York City than at any time since 1914.  of this year are still higher than for the corresponding months a year ago.  Prospects for a continuance of this satisfactory condition are of the brightest.  It seems to make no difference what branch of Canadian activity is  analysed, general improvement is to be noted. The trade of the Dominion Is  expanding year by year, and in this connection the gratifying fact is noted  that the increase in imports is largely accounted for by commodities not indigenous to Canada and were imported for use in Canadian industry. In  building construction the value of contracts awarded has risen from 3276,000,-  000 in 1924 to $298,000,000 in 1925, to $372,000,000 in 1926, and to -$419,000,-  000 in 1927.  Thc steel industry, which has suffered in recent years, reports a 45 per  cent, increase in production for January this year as compared with a year  ago. Car loadings on the railways were 22,000 greater than a year ago. Bank  ' clearings for the same month increased by ''������������������125,000,000 over January, 192T.  Thc total volume of Canadian business in January this year iWas lhe highest  for any January in thc history of tlie country. Employment for January was  99.5 and for February 100.S as compared with thc basic figure of 100 set lor  the year 1920, when employment figures were first tabulated lu this country,  and before thc after-the-war depression set in.  Yes, Canada Is busy aud promises to become increasingly so throughout  '1928.  Seeking Trade With Canada  Chance   For   More   Business    Being  Investigated By Belgium  According to a despatch from Brussels, a Belgian consular agent has  been sent to explore the possibilities  for increased trade with Canada. Interesting prospects for commerce  with Canada were opening up, it was  stated. Canada imported from. Belgium to the extent of .$10,132,879 in  the past year and exported to that  country to tlie value of $18,069,001.

He will succeed thc  late Earl Haig.  An    Anaemic    Condition    Easily  Recognized ��������� Calls For di  Blood Builder  In most cases of anaemia the symptoms are almost the same. The' sufferer grows pale  and is easily tired  after the least exertion.      The appetite is fickle and the patient loses in  weight. Sometimes there    are    headaches,   and   often   inability   to   sleep  well.  As  the  blood  becomes   thinner  the    symptoms    become    more    pronounced and often there are fainting  spells.. All this shows that the blood  is thin and watery, and at the very  first  symptom of  this   condition  the  patient should    take    Dr.    Williams'  Pint Pills,  the most  reliable  blood-  builder and nerve tonic known.    The  sole  mission of  this  medicine  is   to  enrich   the   blood,   and   when that is  done   all  the   distressing    symptoms  disappear.      Among those who have  reason to praise this medicine is Mrs.  M. E. Patterson; Shanklin, N.B., who  says:���������"About four years  ago I  became very much run down,  I  could  not eat, sleep nor rest, and I grew so  nervous    tliat    the    smallest    things  so weak that I did not have strength  would annoy me. Eventually I grow  to move about without help.     I waa  just a miserable wreck,  and became  very much discouraged as I had tried  many medicines which failed to help  me.     In this wretched state a friend  urged mo to try Dr. Williams'  Pink  Pills.    I did so and before long found  they were helping me. Gladly I continued taking  the pills until  I fully'  regained my health and strength and  I have since continued In tho best of  health.      Later my daughter becarno  anaemic and six boxes of thc pills restored   her  to   health,   strength   and  color.     Naturally I consider Dr. Williams* Pink Pills a blessing to weak,  run-down people."  You can get these pills through  any dealer in medicine, or by mail at  50 cents a box from The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

The majority-consisted of Liberals,  Liberal-Progressives and the Independents sitting on the government  side. From the left of the speaker,  L, H. Jelliff CU.fF.A-, Lethbridge) was  the only member to vote for the budget. Conservatives, other members  of the U.F.A.-Progressive group and  Labor members voted against the  budget. There were loud cheers  from both sides o'f the House as the  result was announced. Speaker  Lemieux left the chair and the House  resolved into committee on ways and  means to consider. the budget resolutions one by one. But proceedings  in committee were brief. There was  a reporting of technical progress and  thc I'lOuSC proceeded to other uusi-  ness.  The House met in expectant mood.  The intervention of Henri Bourassa  with its sudden termination Of the  vote on the main budget motion had  left! members wondering what the  day,would bring forth.  Immediately the main motion was  submitted Mr. Bourassa rose to  speak. But he had said only a few  words when....Hon. R. B. Bennett.  Conservative leader, was on his feet  with the objection that Mr. Boiirassa  has already spoken and-was not entitled to speak again. There jlvas  some discussion pro and con and the  speaker ruled against Mr. Bennett.  The speaker held that members with  the exception of Mr. Cahan had not  spoken on the main motion, and were  therefore entitled to speak.  Mr. Bennett appealed the ruling,  which was sustained by a majority  of 41. Liberals, with the exception  of six French-speaking members  from Quebec, voted for the ruling as  did Liberal-Progressives, Progressives, IT.F.A. and Labor members.  With them also-voted C. II. Cahan,.  Conservative of St. Lawrence^St.  George. All other Conservatives  :\ voted against.  XVhen the result was announced,  aM.t. Bourassa again rose to continue  his speech. He -was interrupted by  booing from the Conservative side.  As he endeavored to continue there  was a sort of-catcall from the opposition lobby.  "Order, order," called the Speaker. 'T will ask the sergeant-at-arms  to exercise the rights of the House,"  he said.  The sergeant-at-arms went into  the lobby. The noise ceased and  Mr. Bourassa proceeded.  JB. C.

Santa* Paula, Cal: ��������� Rehabilitation -work is under way in San  Francisquito Canyon and the Santa  Clara Valley, which were laid waste  by the breaking of St. Francis dam  with a known death toll of 264.  While searching parties continued  to bring in additional bodies recovered from the silt and slime left in lhe  wake of the flood, telephone and telegraph repair gangs, steam shovels,  wrecking and bridge crews took the  field in the first steps to restore the  stricken area to its former beauty  and industry.  Meanwhile a committee was organizing here to formulate a general  rehabilitation programme. Speakers  charged that the city of Los Angeles,  which built the dam as part of its  water system, was responsible for  the disaster.  ���������yhe toil in life and property, estimated from official figures and the  surveys of careful observers, stood  as follows: "  264 lives lost.  St. Fancis; dam demolished.  Los Angeles municipal power  bouse below dam demolished.  500 homes destroyed or greatly  damaged.  20 miles of citrus orchard land  buried under many feet of mud and  silt.  10 important bridges destroyed.

Gmciais wm ue axaminea  To Give Evidence at Future Sittings  t       of Immigration Committee.  Ottawa,-���������Officials la charge of immigration and colonization for the  Canadian Railways will be summonsed before the parliamentary committee investigating the department of  immigration."  W. J. Egan, Deputy Minister of  Immigration, -was again on the stand.  He said the'department had cheeked  to determine if all farm laborers  brought in under the railway agreement actually went on ihe farm and  had discovered that such was not the  case in some instances.  Mr. Egan said he thought railways which brought in the bulk of  immigrants were fulfilling the spirit  of their agreement.  Every effort had been made by the  department to induce British farm  laborers to come to Canada and despite the lower fare in effect to Australia there were more people coming-to Canada from Britain than  went to all other outlying parts of  the Empire.  Answering a question: by George  Spotten, Mr. Egan declared there  had been newspaper propaganda  against Great Britain during 1922  and 1923, arising partly from nonpayment of interest on Grand Trunk  securities. This affected immigration, but the propaganda had later  been counteracted.  Usually immigrants were hot stripped   for   examination,   he said,  and  WOULD GIVE AID  ta CANADIANS  s-nTOMfrnrw-ftr  Btf&#&  IrlBAl-U  A&l    l$&iV>&  Dr. McGibbon objected that if this  was so the medical examination -was  a farce.

Senator  Would Welcome JVewfound-  land as a Province of this  Dominion  Ottawa. ��������� Favorable attitude by  Canada towards any proposal which  Newfoundland'might make to join  the Dominion is advocated by Senator C. E. Tanner, Halifax. Senator  i Tanner has given notice of a motion  ifor discussion in the Senate acUrocat-  |mg-  j     "That in the opinion of this House,  [if proposal should "be made    on    be-  | half of tlie people  of Newfoundland  , for union with the Dominion of Canada the people of Canada would view  such pi*oposal with favor, and would  . welcome   Newfoundland   as   a   province of this Dominion."  Ottawa.���������A resolution proposing  that citizens of.." Canada desirous  of settling on western land should  receive from the Government thw  same 'assistance and favorable treatment as the citizens of Europe was  proposed In the House of Commons  by c. L, Bouiang-er (Liberal; Belle  Chasse).  The reasonableness of the proposal should appeal to all Canadians,  Mr. Boulanger said. It would mean  more shoulders to bear the burden  of debt and -would help to keep Canadians at home on the land. Canadians, the descendants of the Loyalists and those of French origin had  traditions which made them the best  type of settlers.  Hon. J. W. Edwards (Conserva-  tiv, Fronteenac) declared that tho  resolution should be exteaded iu order to encourage westerners to come  east and settle in the central provinces. He could not see the force  of the resolution until the Government- adopted a policy that would  keep the youth of   Canada   on   the  1������a-a>3 /  XAJJ.CZ.  . H. E. Lavigueur (Liberal, Quefeec-  Montmorency) declared that Hon.  Mr. Edwards should be joining hand  to hand with Mr.-JBoulanger In the  matter of this resolution, rather than  indulging in "whispers of death."  Peter McGibbon (Conservative,  Muskoka) declared that what was  wanted in Canada was work. He  could not understand why the minister of immigration gave greater facilities and encouragement to Immigrants from Europe when Canadians  were leaving this country daily. He  suggested the establishment of fur  farms in Northern Ontario and Quebec. -  Cost of Fishbig Probe  Ottawa.���������The total cost of the  Royal Fisheries commission established to investigate the problems of  tlie fishermen on the Atlantic coast  amounted to $51,845.56 up to January 31, 1928.

Look!"  Ilelmi leaned over and scanned the  paper. Her own picture stared at her.  For a moment she forgot everything  but the pleasant memories it brought  to mind of Miss Abbie's house and its  kindly .-shelter.- The picture was taken  in front of the house; she had worn  her white middy and pleated skirt.  She remembered now that Mrs; Wymuth had asked for a photo���������it was  one of the rules of the Home.

Helmi reeled, and would have  fallen had not Major Gowsett sprang  to her assistance and placed her in a  ���������chair.. _  " p6 ycau deny this ? "    asked   the  Magistrate, when he thought she was  sufficiently recovered to speak.  ���������������������������"No,"  said Helmi faintly;  "that's  my picture, but it's all a lie."  "Of course, they all say that."  ���������',." Well; at least you can understand  that I was not anxious to marry you.  to young Doran or any decent man.  You have a record, you see, and every  magistrate in panada has a copy or  this."  "Did Jack see this? " Helmi asked  after a pause. ."  "���������yes, I showed it to him ivhile you  sat outside,"    said    the    magistrate,  "but he told me to goson. Like every  other, young   fellow   he   wanted   his  own way. But now I advise you not  to try to make trouble. You have no  claim on hlm-r-remember  that��������� and  he's gone away,' I   hear,    for-   good.  You'd better go straight back to this  Home that you ran away from.     No  doubt they will   help    you    througli  again. I understand many of the girls  come hack two and three times, fta  fact," he said turning to his friend,  " that is one great objection to these  Rescue Homes���������they    make    things  far too easy for girls of this class."  Helmi was staring past them vacantly. The pallor pf her face was  deepening. *  "Now, look here," said the magistrate, sharply, " no tricks, no faints.  You're an old hand at this, although  you are not old in years, and you  can't make me believe you are an innocent young thing, wbo has been  deeply wronged. You're well able to  look after^yourself."     ���������  Helmi rose uncertainly. She reached out her hand for the certificate she  had given him.  " This is no good," he said, " you  may as well leave it here."  " Give it to me," cried Helmi, with  some of her old fury, snatching it  from his hand.  " Take it then, you tiger," he said  angrily. " It's no good to you. Take it  and get out of here! I am not running  a Girls' Friendly Home here."  Helmi opened her purse to replace  the paper, and as she did so a card  dropped out.: ;She stooped and picked  it up. It was a white card bordered  with maple leaves, and in the centre were printed these words: "Wei-  come to Canada! "  The sight of the card brought Helmi back to the night she had got it.  It was her -place-card the night the  girls gave her the party. They -were  good to her and would fbe sorry for  all this trouble -which had come to  her. This man who had caused her so  much harm would suffer for it. Canada was all right. God was all right.  This man -was a devil. In a moment  all her faintnesa was gone, succeeded  by burning rage.  The two men watched her uneasily.  There was something terrible in her  anger. She walked over to the table  and stood in front of Col. Blackwood.  " You are a.bad man," she said, " A  devil~an old dirty, drunken devil, I  hate you, and I will kill you. If my  man does not come back to me 1 will  kill you." Hor voice waa low, but it  filled all the room. "It will bo your  fault, and I,will come back hero and  kill you."  Before either of the. men could recover from tlio shock she was gone.  When Helmi drove into the yard at  the Boarding House old Sim, who had  been watching for her, came to take  hor hor so. Mrs. McMann camo out,  too, and the timekeeper, and thc mine  boss. They had been talking it over.  Helmi stepped out of the buggy and  stood leaning against tho wheel. 'Hor  face wu������ white and. lined, and hor  big eyes were feverish.  " Woll, Holml, what about It? " said  Mra. McMann, who could Tacar tho  suspense no longer, "What about  tt"  '��������� It'ia not in the book," said Holml,  wearily. "Ho may a wo aro not married at all. Ho says Jack wa3 fooling  mo. Ho in nn old devil, that magistrate."  " Tough luck, Ilelmi," said tho mine  boss, " But wo all know it wasn't  your fault. l"io iooied you���������that'a  all."  Mra. McMaan found her tongue���������  never a hard task for her. " Well,  ono thine*: ������ur������, Helmy, you can't cay  I didn't warn you. I know It meann no  good to a girl whon ono of thoae city  dude a ntarts to go with hor. Thoy  mean no fmoi. to ������t������y jjIHL f t**1\ yw������,  a girl has to watch hor utup all tlio  time. I can't keep you htfcro. I'd keep  you on if J could, but there's so much  talk of this, that and the other; and  I've always tried to run a decent  house, but with so many comers and  goers, and now that Mr. McMann has  gone I've g"ot to be snore careful. 1  guess you'd better go into the city.  There's so many people there no one  asks questions."  Mrs. McMann went on talking.  Helmi stood up and faced the sunset and her eyes were looking far  away. She did not hear what Mrs.  McMann was saying. She was thinking of that sunset long ago���������the  night before she crossed the Canadian border���������hoaw it glowed and  gleamed;and beckoned. She had been  so sure it was* a welcoming fire to  warm and comfort her. She had come  in full of hope and confidence���������so  sure she was of making her way, and  finding friends. But these ftres, these  friendly flres, .where were they now ?  Her friend whom she loved had betrayed her into hostile hands. And  now her Jack! Was Aunt Lili right  after all? Was Jack a painted fire,  too . ..- .and God, her God, who had  seemed so close and dear and loving  to her, was he just a painted fire,  like the other, coid, and dead, and  mocking, when she came to him crying and shivering, bitterly alone, and  afraid. i  The last glow of color .-laded in the j  they were not able to accomplish.

Childhood    ailments  come on so sudden���������sometimes without a minute's warning���������the mother  may have a very sick baby on her  hands before help   can   be   obtained.  That is unless she has a remedy in the  house which she can safely give the  baby for any of the many minor ail-  | tnents of babyhood and childhood..  Such a remedy is found in Baby's  OWn Tablets.    Thousands of mothers  throughout tlie country always keep  a box of the Tablets on hand and they  proclaim them to be without an equal  for sweetening baby's stomach; regulating his  bowels,   and  thus   driving  out constipation and indigestion, colds  and  simple  fevers,   and  making the  dreaded teething period easy.  Baby's Own Tablets are an absolutely safe remedy. They are guaranteed to be free from opiates or any  other narcotic drug -which are so  harmful to the future welfare of the  baby. Mothers, if you value the life  of your little ones give him Baby's  Own Tablets when he is ill, or, better  still, give him an occasional, dose of  the Tablets to ward off illness. The  Tablets are sold by medicine dealers  or will be sent to any address, post  paid, at 25 cents a box by addressing  The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont.  ilt!e Helps For This Week j  _ . ��������������������������� ; , i  "Blessed be the I-ord, who daily  loadeth us with benefits, even the  God of our salvation."���������Psalm lxviii.  i&.
