As  is now 'generally known, Canada has within recent years moved into first  place among the nations of the world in the production of paper, having*  passed the United States which up to a few years ago was the world's  largest producer. Tbe great development of water powers, now so marked  a feature of Canada's industrial progress, has been largely brought about  because of the growth of the pulp and paper industry. This weufer power  development is, however, vitally affecting the whole life of the Dominion.  Apart from the pulp and paper industry, the forests have an influence,  and play a direct part upon practically every department of Canada's  national life, whether it he the social, economic, financial, agricultural or industrial. It is of the utmost importance, therefore, that the forests ot Canada foe protected and conserved.  In full realisation of this fact, the Dominion Government has by royal  proclamation issued hy His Excellency the Governor-General, set apart the  week of April 22 to 23 as "Canadian Forest Week." Statements contained  in this royal proclamation may serve to bring home to Canadians the effect  and value of forests in ways to which they have given little thought. In this  proclamation the following facts are emphasized:  ��������� 1,    Our national income depends on our forest industries" more than on  any other source except agriculture.  2. Our forest industries depend on the timber crops now standing ripe  in the forest, and their very existence is jeopardized hy any preventable  wastage of these supplies. The future of the -.forest industries depends on  the young growth and immature timber of today, and the prosperity of these  industries will he in direct proportion to the care and protection afforded ihis  growing- timber.  3. Our water-powers depend upon the stability of stream flow  throughout the year, ihe equilibrium of which is disturbed by denudation of  the forest cover in the dralnag-e basins, resulting in alternate periods of  floods and low water.  4. Our irrigation works demand protection���������forests are the fountain-  head of irrigation.  IM QPRltaCTIMK  aUf   ka tiuiu * **���������***���������  5. Our agricultural lands depend on distant watersheds for the maintenance of subsoil moisture during the growing period, and are robbed of  productivity by wasteful run-off which occurs when the forests are destroyed.  6. Our game and fur-bearing animals depend on the forest for'their  natural protection, and decrease in numbers or retreat to more remote  regions aa the forest cover disap^ars.  t. Our tourist traffic depends ia a great measure on scenic and other-  attractions offered in such abundance by the forest and would he seriously  affected if verdant woodlands be transformed into desolate wastes.  This enormously valuable asset to any country���������and Canada is among  the- wealthiest in forest resources among the nations of the world���������is  threatened by two dangers both of which are man-caused and therefore preventable,���������(1) Almost universal carelessness with fire in the forest, resulting- in the destruction, not only of timber and young growth, but of the very  soil which produces it, and (2) the use of wasteful and destructive cutting  methods without any thought of ensuring a new crop.  It is in recognition of all these facts that during "Canadian Forest  Week," April 22 to 28, which is also the" beginning of another season of  travel and recreation in the forest with attendant fire danger, the people of  Canada are officially urged to resolve for another year to recognize the  situation as set out in this royal proclamation and to give careful heed to  the information issued by the several forest authorities and agencies in  Canada to the end that all may he encouraged to a sustained and patriotic  effort in promoting* the conservation of this valuable resource.

I would like to see the Alberta government establish an office.  here, which would serve as a distributing centre and an information  .bureau.

It was not the intention of the government to take  charge of distribution, he said, as  had been done with the trial shipments.

Agnes McPhail  withdrew her motion ror the creation  of a department for the promotion  of peace. Miss McPhail expressed the  hope that between now and next ses-  jgion the government would set up  some agency to tell what was being  done for the promotion Of peace-  Miss MacPhail said: "While we  have a superiority complex which  nothing can puncture, there will always be danger of war. It can't be  true that we can always be right."  Women, she said, were keenly  aware of war. They placed a higher  value on human life because, tliey  suffered so much for it and for this  reason they should have a voice in  parliament. The sacrifices of 11)14 to  1918 should be crystallized into  something which should prevent tho  recurrence of war.'  Sir George Perley (Conservative,  Argenteuil), said thc League *of Nations had performed commendable  work in pi-eventing wai*3 and solving  labor, health and other social problems. But something should be done  in the way of bringing to the direct  attention of thc people of all countries the object and benefits of the  League. In Canada the League of  Nations Society with headquarters nt  Ottawa might be profitably utilized  for educational purposes of this nature.

The  ! cost of this mileage he estimated at  ahout $173,000,000.   .  In addition, there were applications  before the provincial legislatures  which brought the total mileage up  to approximately 4,400, with an estimated cost of ?242,G00,0G0. This did  not include equipment and when it  was supplied the total cost, would approximate  ������300,000,000.  The minister told the committee it  was not possible at present to lay  down the principle that no more charters were to be granted to companies  other than the Canadian National and  the Canadian Pacific Railways.  Oh the other hand,; the Government was of the opinion that with  the exception or railways, which were  required for the development of mining properties or something of tliat  nature, the two great railway companies could take care of" the work.  The committee would of course, give  consideration f to ',��������� the applications  which caine? before it."  At the opening of the meetingF.  S.

Where a man and wife are both  over seventy years, then each will  get a pension, or double for both of  them.  A man must prove that he  is   a  citizen   of   Canada,   that   he   has  lived in Canada twenty years, and  that he has lived in   the   province  where   he   makes   application   for  ��������� five years.    The assumption of the  Government   is   that   a   man   or  woman  of seventy   oan   live on a  dollar a day, that is, $365, but the  maximum pension allowed is $240.  Most persons of seventy have saved  a Httle, and have a  slight  income,  whioh must be deducted from $365.  If, when   the deduction   is   made,  the remainder is $240, he will   not  get   full   pension.    In   estimating  one's  income  five  per oont. of the  assessed   value   of one's home, and  the land belonging to it, should be  counted   as  inoome  and  deduotei  from   the $365.    For instance, if a  tiuiiVs home, aud the  laud   belong  ing to it, be assessed at $1500. live  per  cent,   of   $1500   will   be   $75.  Thia   roust  he. conn ted   as  income  and   deduotcd   from   tho $305, but  the $75 will mako n full allowance  for the use of the house and   other  buildings, and also for the potatoes  arid   other   ve#ebabl������H, apples, etc.,  grown   on   the   hind.

This  decision was arrived]  at after a veey thorough discussion of  the sltnation   by   the fire fighters at  their   regular    meeting    on    Monday  night,   when   the   secretary   waB   instructed to send  the  village  clerk a  copy of the following resolution:  **Whereas the council has not provided the necessaiy equipment' and  transportation to enable better handling of the equipment. Therefore be it  resolved th������t no more practices will  be held until such equipment is provided."  Ohief Matt. York gnve a talk on  different subjects, especially fire fighting and fire discipline that should be  taught in all schoolB. He also urged  that better fire protection should be  provided in Oreston school.  A letter whs received from the provincial Are marshri.ll in which that  official thateh that in cu.se of accident  at a fire no compensation could be  collected except from the village  authorities.

He wanted something to make  a. living at, it said; which didn't  sound exactly right to me.  I never read any of the gentleman's novels, bwt from the publicity  ne gets in the highbrow literary magazines every time he brings out a  neSs? one, anyone who didn't know  much about the novel business would  think the . royalties must roll in so  fast that the author would never  have to do any real work���������like run-  sing a country newspaper, for example. But the  funny part was  hia  >uc<>   iXXus,  xit;   V.VUJU   Qlotve   a.   nviixg   Oul  of a country weekly, or two of them.  I knew something about country  weeklies. I started my journalistic  life by cleaning the spittoons and  rushing the growler for the editor  and the printer, and inking the form  on the Washington hand press with  a big two-handled roller, while Charley Gleason pulled ner over. ��������� When  we had sot the weekly run of ten  quires off, two pages at a time, Wednesdays and Fridays, we knew we'd  been working.  Yes, sir;  between the time when I  met  my  first  tvpe louse   in  tlie   old;  Georgetown   Courant   shop   over   Ah i conventions  a good deal, just to see  Hen Jackson's  Chinese laundry,  and i the fellows I know."  ���������pwoa  \^'^:'^?W  MASK.

I never worked  on one of them after I got my union  card,   but  there  hasn't  been   a  spell  Bert must have inherited more  than I'd thought, it seemed. Before I  could ask him what he had been doing all these years, ne was rattling  on about his folks.  "Remember Sarah ��������� Mrs. Mills?"  of  bad  weather  in  more  than  forty! he asked.  "Gee,  I  wish we'd met a  years that I haven't been reminded  of tixe old shop; the stiff joint where  I split my forefinger feeding dodgers  oh the brass-ami Gordon aches every  time a rain starts to blow up. That  stiff finger changed    everything    for  few minutes sooner; she'd have been  glad to see you. I just left her at one  of the big- stores... She comes down  every little while to shop."  I   did   remember   Bert's   wife���������an  anaemic,    di*agged-out,    tired-looking  me, in a way; it shunted me frona the i little  woman,   with-a  boisterous  kid  case to the" proof box, "which turned j hanging to each hand.

But that hasn't anything -to  do with country newspapers.  Where I got my big laugh out of  that newspaper item about" the novelist was remembering- uie way B.  Franklin Simms, the editor of the old  ner with them once in a cheap little  flat out Flatbush way. Even twenty  years ago it was hard sledding in  New York for'a man with a family  on forty a week.  "You wouldn't    know    her    now,"  j Bert went on.     "I was  afraid,   first,  Courant, had to hustle for cash every j *** w*s,n,t Soing to like it in a small  Wednesday  morning  to  get  the pa-  town. She w-as born    and    raised    in  tent insides out of the express office. 1 Brooklyn   you  know,   and  Brooklyn  That took  cash.  Nobody  ever  heard ' P^P1,*3 hate to change   But nobody m  of an editor having credit. He had to  give plenty, though. Subscribers paid  up -when they felt like it or not at all.  Often as not they would pay in kind  ���������garden truck, cordwood or eggs���������  and sometimes advertisers did the  same. Advertisers could always stand  the editor off by threatening- to pull  out of the paper. There was only so  much business to be had, and they  would get it anyway, so they were  merely doing the editor a favor by  advertising at all.  I remembered the time when old  Otto Muncastcr, who ran the lumberyard, settled a three months' advertising bill with six barrels of lime,  and a few other incidents of that  sort, and I felt sort of sorry for the  poor fish who had let somebody tin-  load a couple of country patters on  him, Not one paper, mind you; that  would have been bad enough, but the  piece in the papers said he had had  two wished on him! If he just wanted experience, something to use for  material for more novels, that might  be a good way to get it, but to make  a living���������well, it just didn't fit with  all I knew about country weeklies.  Then I ran into Bert Mills���������literally ran into him in the crowd at  Forty-second and Fifth Avenue, by  the library. I hadn't seen or heard  anything of him for twenty years;  not since he quit his job on the copy  desk of the old Globe. I remembered  hearing at the time that his t'athcr  had died and he had gone back upstate Lo settle the family affairs, but  that was the last anybody around  New York hnd heard so far us I  knew.  I wouldn't have known him if he  hadn't spotted me first. It took only  a glance to assure mc that he had  been successful. It wasn't only hia  clothes; they were what any business  man might wear. It was his way of  looking at you and speaking to you,  the air of a man accustomed to direct, dc-ulinji with all sorts of people  He was glad to nee me ancl I was  ���������Just a?; glad to see him,  "Still in the newspaper game, old  tinier?" he asked, after wo had  pump-handled a while. I told him no,  I'd boon out of Jt lor a good many  years.  "I've t-ort. o' tired, too," naid Bert.  "Play a little Rolf, do a little Ashing,  j.,o down to Florida l'or a couple of  months >n the winter, run around to  Vicka' healing, antiseptic ingredient!*  bring soothing relief.   Apply gently.  Middleboro now ever thinks of her as  an outsider. They even tried to get ,  her to run for Assembly last "year.  She's the politician of the family ���������  headed right now for the president of  the State Federation of Women's  Clubs."  He'd put both his boys through  Cornell, he told me, and had a girl,  too, who wras a junior at Syracuse.  One of his boys was married and he  even had a pair of grandchildren.-  And while he talked I.racked my  memory to try to locate Middleboro.  It must be an important town, but  somehow I couldn't place It.  "You haven't told me the most important thing of all, Bert," I said  when he had finished about his family.

These mothers have found  by actual experience that there is no  other medicine for little ones to equal  them. Once a mother has used them  for her children she will use nothing  else. Concerning them Mrs. Charles  Hutt, Tancook Inland, N.S., writes:���������  "I have ten children, the baby being  just six months old. I have timed  Baby's Own tablets for Ihom for tho  past 20 year*-* and can truthfully say  that I know of no better medicine for  littlo ones, 1 always keep a bo:c of the  Tablets in thc house und would advise all other mothers to do ro."  Baby's Own Tablets are wold by all  medicine dealers or will be mailed upon receipt of price, 25 cents por box,  by The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co,,  DrocUvjlle, Ont.  the Tomb Of  Christ, verses 1-4.���������Very early on  Sunday morning, just as the sun was  rising, Mary Magdalene, Mary the  mother of James, and Salome went to  the tomb of Christ for the purpose of  anointing his body with spices.  As these women went on their way  to the tomb they kept asking themselves, "Who shall roll us away the  stone from the door of the tomb?"  The stone probably a cylindrical one  which could be rolled to either side in  a groove at the base of the opening,  but was too heavy for the women  themselves to move, being "exceeding  great." As they approached, they saw  that the stone had beert rolled back.  While Mary Magdalene ran to tell  Peter and John that the stone was removed, the other woman entered the  tomb and saw a young man arrayed  in a white robe (an angel) sitting  within. Luke 24.4 speaks of two men,  and in Matthew 28 an angel is sitting upon the stone without the tomb,  but, as the One Volume Commentary  observes, "Such slight discrepancies  harmonize well with the excited feelings which such a vision would be  likely to produce. Minute and detailed  agreement in independent narratives  under such v circumstances would be  suspicious."  Tho young man in the tomb said to  the women, "Be not amazed: ye seek  Jesus, the Nazarene, who hath been  crucified; He is risen; He is not here."  "Instead of its being surprising  that there was a resurrection on  Easter morning, let us ask ourselves  If it Would not have been more surprising if there had been no resurrect  tion. Would it not have been indeed  amazing if the life in Christ had come,  to- a full atop on the day of the crucifixion? Of course, if that life had  come to such a stop, we should never  have "heard of tho life at all; but how  amazing to think that a life like  Jesus' could stop! Peter had tlie right  angle from which to view tlio Resurrection when he doclarcd that it was  impossible for death-to hold Christ."  ���������1*\ J. McConncll.

Late that - night a sound came  through the three auger holes in the  storm sash which had a meaning for  Helmi.

People-may be fbojn  or: may die, but .someone^has to run  they trains. The North Star Rooming  House stood near the tracks, and the  sound came distinctly and lonesome-  ly to Helmi's ears. She raised herself  on her elbow and listened, her eyes  eager and straining.  When the train haa gone behind  the Great West Garment Factory,  and the sound of the bell had grown  fainter and fainter and at last was  lost in the myriad sounds of the city,  Helmi fell back on her pillow sobbing  like a dog in a dream.

Helmi had thought  it terrible for Rose to say she was  glad, but now maybe the Shelter  would be tho best place. .... She  could not help It, anyway���������no ono  wants a girl with a baby. It would  have to go to the Shelter.  Round and. round in a red-raw  circle went Helmi's mind, growing  sorer and sorer with thinking, and  yet unable to stop.  Suddenly the baby, from thc folds  of its blanket at the foot of tho "bed,  began to cry, a frightened little eerie  cry, like no other sound on earth, the  weakest and yet the mightiest human  cry.  From the region below the snow  came Helmi at. tho sound���������Helmi,  strong, defiant, generations" back of  her speaking in oyory movement,  ready to face tlie world. The Shelter  was forgotten. She reached down instinctively uXMl, little Lili, don't cry;  it's all right, nothing can hurt my  little Lili; come to your aili."  Lili understood the words, and, lying in hor mother's arms, went  peacefully to sloop. Tho problem of  the future ceased to trouble her. -And  Helmi, soothed by tho presence of tho  littlo warm thing, so exquisitely clear  and sweet, slipped gently Into the  kind gray mists of forgctfulness,  where torturing hopes and, choking  fears wero all hold nt hay by n. kind  gray wall !n whew. nhadowft her tired  young soul found peace.  "She will be all right," said Maggie  Corbett, whon Mrs. Kallnsikl expressed hor fears; "She la strong nnd  healthy, and. the long sleep will do  her good.

After Mrs. Kalinski had gone to  her own suite, iairs. Corbett stood at  the foot of the bed looking at her patient. Suddenly an idea occurred to  her. She went to her rooms across the  hall and made a determined search* in  the middle bureau drawer .which was  known as the drawer "that has  everything in it." Coming back, she  lifted Helmi's left hand and put a  ring on her finger. "If a little thing  like a ring wijl ��������� give the poor girl  back her; character I will not be denying her mine, that has been too tight  for me for many $. dlay, and ih case  she should^ die it will save' the wee  one's good name. I will tell Mrs. Kalinski, for she noticed there was none?  but there's none of the rest of them  need know. It will save a lot of talk  and wondering. Well, there's nothing  wrong with the kid, rinng or no ring."  Mrs. Corbett took the slumbering  infant into her own rooms for the  night, at the instigation of her  daughter Rose, aged twelve, who offered the young stranger a share of  her bed and personal service. On "the  Winnipeg couch she was placed, with  a barricade of pillows in front of her  to prevent any one from thoughtlessly  sitting on her.   '  When John Corbett came home and  found his family increased he expressed no surprise, nor did he offer  comment when the events of the. afternoon were related. But he did go  uo the couch to get a. look at the  baby, being warned by ROsie not to  come too near for fear he would start  a draught.  "She's a fine child," he said, and  went back to his supper.  "Whether she is an honest woman  or not, I do not know," Mrs. Corbett  concluded her recital; "but I do know  this���������:she has been treated bad. Ain't  men the limit, anyway ? To go oft and  leave a poor girl like that with .no  more thought or worry about it than  a tomcat?"  John Corbett went on buttering his  bread on the palm of his hand, and  making no attempt to %efend his sex.  "Oh, I guess they are ail bad, right  enough," he said pleasantly. "I often  wonder myself why the Lord ever  made them. It's a good thing there  comes a war every wee while to kill  them off���������tho divils!"
