Prior to the opening* of Parliament and the Legislatures, members of the  various Governments were basy receiving- deputations f rom forgiinizatious of  all kinds, including* financial, ir.cuastrial and coananercaal institutions, organised farmers, and numerous social refo-cm and benevolent societies. Iaa tho  vast majority of cases these deputations advocated certain chaaiges tn existing laws calculated to advance the interests or cause in which they were  more especially interested. Also in the majority of cases, representations  were made in support of reductions in existing- taxation, and, coupled With  such representations. Governments were urged to embark upon additiouai  services, ot- provide new institutions, all of which called for large increases  in public expenditure and the creation of new administrative services.  Ihe problem with which all Governments are thus confronted, and  which is presented to tiiem every year, is most complex, and it is to be feared  that many of these deputations do not give serious enough consideration to  it. Many spokesmen for these deputations seem to lafcaor under the delusion,  ���������a fairly general one,���������that Governments have some magic means of finding money without raising it by means of taxation.  For exaniple. in all Provinces there is a persistent and growing demand  that very much larger amounts be spent in the construction of good, all-  weather, highways. Oaee built such roads must be maintained, thus for every  mile constructed there is an increased annual charge for up-keep. But coupled with these insistent demands there is the further complaint that automobile licence fees are too high and should be reduced, while municipalities  are ever demanding that, while the Provincial Governanent shall build and  take over tb.e maintenance of roads, the auto licence fees should he divided  with the municipalities. In other words, the Government should spend more  and collect less. .  Note another example. The people "Of Canada demand tiae establishment  of a system of Old  Age Pensions.    The Federal Government  agrees,  and  Western Canada Aviation  Con-  Three "New Planes Are Under  struction In Winnipeg  Application for?a" charter has been  made by-the?Canadian Aircraft1 Company of Winnipeg, incorporated at  ������50,000.

THE ART OF MAKING TEA  What To Bo and What Not To Do To  Get the Best Results  Mr. Spalding Black, on the staff of  the Salada Tea , Company,    recently  Orsbn, a town in Sweden, is tree  from"taxes,*due to the fact that the  preceding generations ��������� planted trees  which yield fruit enough to take care  of taxes. <������������������   -f.  undertakes to pay fifty per cent, of such pensions, provided the Provincial!  Governments pay the other fifty per cent. British Columbia, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba agree to enter the scheme. All parties in the Legislatures are  in favor of doing so. Then, in Manitoba, the Government proposes the imposition of an additional tax in order to raise the money wherewith to pay  such pensions, and immediately objections are raised.  In Saskatchewan within recent months the Government has been askecr  to provide for a free consultative clinic, for a school for the blind and the  deaf, for an institution for the care of juvenile delinquents, larger facilities  for the training of teachers, extension of the educational system, another  sanatoria to combat tuberculosis, a lai-ge extension of the, road building programme, including the gravelling of roads, etc., etc. The Government proceeds to some extent to give effect to a number of these requests and to assist in securing the necessary funds proposes a tax on gasoline. This meets  with approval, but immediately a demand is made that the auto licence fee  be substaiatially reduced, the effect of which would be to largely offset tlxe  increase in revenue to be derived from the gasoline tax, and leaving- th*  Govcrnment without the means to provide those very things the people had  deananded.  Referring to this all too general attitude on lhe part of people, and the  mci'easing demand for "free" services of one kind and another, the Provincial Treasurer of Saskatchewan took occasion, in his budget speech to point  out that "there ain't no such animal" as a "free" service. Any service if not  paid for by thc individual must be paid for by the state, and if the state pays,  then the money with which -to foot thc state's bills must be secured from  individuals in the mass by way of taxes.  The responsible heads of all our Canadian institutions and organizations  should devote a portion of their tiane in training for such responsible posts  by taking a course iu economics.

Montreal, Murcla 10.���������Tlae phenomenal record of the Sun Life Assur-  ance Company is an inspiration to all Canadians. Its income of $102,000,000  is already equal to the total revenue of the. Government of Canada in the  year 1910, and ������38,000,000 is certainly an amazing sum to have earned as  profit in one year. Not many corporations -anywhere can report such figures. Tlie President's intimate, practical comments at the annual meeting  explaining how these huge profats were made were illuminating.  Of even greater- moment, however, were his statements regarding tine  danger tliat this great Canadian institution may pass from Canadian control.  Some months ago, Mr. Macaulay referred-to the activity of Wall Street in  the buying* of Sun Life stock, and cautioned policyholders and shareholders  of the menace it involved to an institution, which was founded and developed  "by Canadians and which has obtained its phenomenal growth under Canadian management. Subsequent events have justified those misgivings, and  at the meeting today the lirst public intimation was given that the Sun Life,  directors are seeking* legislation at the present session of Parliament which  is intended to effectively forestall this danger.

Accordingly, they set off in their boat with him  for an uninhabited spot (for this is  the meaning here of .,the word desert), on the other side of the lake.

Sun Life Sets Its Own Pace  " People sometimes say when  speaking of our progress:���������'Yes, life  assurance is growing wonderfully.'  So it is; but the Sun Life is not content to grow only at the rate of life  assurance genei-ally. Statistics now  available indicate that in 1927 the aggregate new business of all the companies operating in the United States  exceeded the total for 1926 by only  one per cent, and in Canada by seven  per cent. But the new business of  the Sun Life of Canada shows an increase of twenty-three per cent. We  set our own pace. Our prosperity and  popularity, and the enthusiastic support of our six hundred thousand  policyholders, makes our growth both  rapid and certain. The future still before us will, I am convinced, be more  wonderful than anything we can  now imagine. Aaid at ia indeed a happy thought that all that growth" in  size and all that growth in prosperity  mean increased service to humanity,  and service at steadily lowering cost  to our policyholders."  The President closed' his remarks  by his reference to the need of safeguarding the future of the Company,  as above quoted.  The Board of: Directors of thc Sun  get apart and correct our moral and  spiritual vision. The strain impairs  our powers, and they need the rest  of the neutral tints."

RICH, RED BLOOD  A REAL NERVE TONIC  The Source Of All Nervousness  Is Weak, Watery Blood  Many people, both men and women,  find themselves run down, throug-h  overwork, or anxieties. Such stiffer-  ers find themselves tired, low-spirited and depressed. Their nerves seem  to be worn out and they suffer from'  headaches aaid other nerve pains. All  this comes from starved nerves.  Doctoring" the nerves with poisonous sedatives is a terrible mistake  The only real nerve tonic is a good  supply of rich red blood. Therefore  to relieve nervousness and run-dowai  health Dr. Williams' Pink Pills should  be taken. These pills eiax*ich tlie blood,  which tones the nerves, improves the  appetite, gives new strength and  spirits and maJ-tes hitherto despondent people bright and cheerful. Miss  Irene Denno, li.R. No, 1, Washago,  Ont., tells what Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills did for her as follows:���������"I suffered for a lone; tiane with my nerves,  nnd a gcnea-ail run-down condition. I  grew so weak that I had to lie In bed  a part of evci*y day. I coiald not do  any work aand was tail-thai* medicine  all" tho, tiane, trying- oaics anodicino after another. I was advised to try Dr.  Williams' Piailt Pills aaad I havo reason to be thankful thait I acted oai  thia advice, as this was thc flrst medicine that gave me any i-ellof, aiad in  a comparatively short time rcstorocl  ano to tho blessing* of goo*! health.  Wiien I think of the marvellous good  theso pills did mo, I can most highly  recommend them to all weak, nervous poople."  If you are at all run-flown, w  weak, yoaa should begin ait onco to  take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and you  will sooai be well nnd sta-ong. Those  pills are sold by all medicine dealers  or will be seaat by mall at fart cents a  box by T\ae Dr. William^ Medicine  Co., Brotikvlllo, Oaat.  Why suffer from corns whon they  caaa bo palnlcasly rooted out by using  Holloway'B Corn Iteanover.

McCLUNG  1  COPYRIGHT, CAN ADA,  1325  CHAPTER XIX.~Continued.  It was strange for Arthaar Warner,  after aii his lonely years, to be sitting here talking so intimately to a  woman who was a coanparative  stranger, and receiving > from "her  confidences. which she had given to  no one else. He thought of ...His own  ^lonely liouse���������so precious to him, so  eagerly acquired, so patiently worked for���������how a woman like this would  have brightened it and graced it with  'her presence. She was so calm, so  brave, so gentle.  When their eyes met Helmi smiled;  encouragingly  at him,   though  sadly  too, as if the tears were*not very fai  away.   Were   they   tears   because   he  was going?  "Helmi," he , said, "we aro both  facing .tbe elemental things of life,  and it draws, us .together. We ai*e facing the hardest things that men and  women, ever have to face. "iOiir part  will be to giv������ life, maybe at the expense of your own. Mine is���������<3od forgive me���������to take life. Are you  afraid^'  Helmi shook her head. "No," she  e&fd,"simply, "I believe in God.���������I believe He loves arte. I love Him. Every  day I say my good words. I learned  them in His house. They are, 'Cherish  health; Seek truth; Know God; Serve  others.' Then I say, -'Please God,  bring home my Jack.' It is good to  pray, Mr. English, when one is  afraid/*  The first ragged whistle of the  train came booming down the valley.  "Tell me your name Helani," he said,  I want to say good words for you and  for your Jack.".  Holml took his hand, and impulsively kissed it.... "Helmi f Doran,'' ' she  said. "I am gladi you will say good  words for my Jack. Maybe you-will  see him over there���������I know he will  go."  "I hope for your sake that it will  all be over when Jack comes home  at Christmas."  He'was standing up now with hia  cap In his hand. The train was whistling again as it came slowly down  the; grade. Helmi looked at him reverently. It waa not merely a lonely,  wcather-beuten hotnestoader uhe saw  standing before her; alio saw a brave,  man who was willing to glvo everything ho possessed, not withholding  his own life, for the causo of human  liberty, and an his faco she saw tho  unanlstakable majesty which cornea  to those who are appointed to die.  Arthur Wnraaer bent over nnd lthis-  ed her shining hair. "Good-bye, dear  Jlohni," he said.  "Good-bye, God bless you, dear Mr.  English!"  "When Arthur went out he met Mrs.  McMann coming in.. She had come  presumably to ask Helmi -what she  had done with the tape-line.  CHAPTER XX. ?  It was in December that Helmi decided to delay no longer, she would  go to the city. Jack had told hereto  go to his mine boss and get the two  hundred dollars _ which was due on  his wages. She had not needed it until now, and "had felt it best to leave  it where it was. She had hoped her  Jack would he home to her before  this, ahd then he could go himself.  Helmi had earned seventy-five dollars  from Mrs. McMann, too, and she had  often imagined the proud look which  would come to Jaick when she,,would  show him "theypf teen five-dollar bills  in the pocket of yJieryybla^ valise.  Helmi knew what she was "going to  buy with it,, too. Had she hot marked things in the catalogue? Baat the  days had worn -wearily on and there  had been no word. It was often hard  to keep fr>om crying, but it must be  all right���������God would not let her dear  Jack be lost.  The Blue Boole was a cornfort, too.  It .was so full of happiness. The Blue  Book was sure everything would  come put right. She wondered if the  people who wrote the Blue Book ever  had their men go away so far and  stay so long. She had found the Blue  Book was right in what it said about  gardens. It said a garden links one  with God. Helnii had been happiest  in her little garden, every sod  of which site had turned herself. In  tho suanmer evenings she had worked there until it was so dark she  could not aoe, and never did sad  thoughts came to- her then.  Helmi took it as a sure sign tlaat  God was pleased with her when her  plants grew so beautifully and the  hail-storm which broke windows In  some of the houses did not touch her  garden at all. Helani was proud of  her garden, too, because it was the  first garden in Eagle Mines, and also  bocauso tiio women said nothing  would grow. In, that way her, head-  lottuco, radishes, onions, cabbage,  carrots, and .beets wero something of  a triumph. But best of all was tho  square iai tho mlddlo, where stoqks  and asters *and nasturtiums grow.  Every day thoro wore bouquets from  hor garden on thc tables at tlao  boarding-house, and although thoy  wore no tiling Jlice Uio floworw which  Mrs. McMann herself had grown in  Lincoln,  Nebraska;  cither    In    color  size or perfume, yet even Mrs. McMann admitted they were very nice  flowers as flowers go in Canada. Helmi did not mind what Mrs. McMann  said. She and the mountains knew  ihev were wonderful flowers. The  mountains had looked down upon h'er  so kindly all summer, she knew they  were pleased.  There was no dearth of praise  among the men, who were glad to  have fresh instead of canned vegetables for their meals, and twenty-four  dollars was the sum Helmi had in the  pocicet of her "black valise to prove  that her garden had been a success.  Even after the vegetables were done  the; asters and stocks* flared and  bloomed, and "Hehni hoped that by  some chance Jack would come in  time to see too. They seemed to grow  more?showy and brilliant as the night  frost drew nearer and nearer. But  one. night, while she slept, the frost  slipped down the mountain, without  a sound, and laid low every stalk and^  every "-bloom-in her garden, and having done its work went back the way  it came. The morning sky was blue  and bright, the sun was warm, and  playful little breezes turned the dead  flowers over, just to be sure that  none were missed. When Helmi came  out and, saw the wo'fk of tlae night  she wrung her hand���������but only for a  minute. That day she raked the dead  stalks into a pile, and. she burned  them when they wero dry and dug  the garden for her next year's planting.   '���������.'���������������������������������������������.���������'���������  Helmi had not yet brought herself  to ask for the two hundred dollara  Jack had) left. She wished tlae timekeeper would give it to her without  asking for it, but the days wore oia  and she knew she must go soon. She  would not let Mrs. McMann or anyone think she was grieving* or distressed. Jack had told lier that the  greatest thing in married lij-e was to  trust and not he afraid, so she affected a gaiety she-did not feel, which  cmite deceived the -/'elite". lady.  "These foreigners haven't got any  fine feelings," Mrs. McMann told her  friend Mrs. Turner. "Now one would  thing Helmi woaild feel a little shy-  but pass her house any time you like  and you can near lier singing, and  as long as tlie; days were nice she was  either working?;in [the garden or sitting />utside sewing.

Well, ot  course, one can't expect much from  these foreigners, their standards  have never been like ours. Mr. McMann often told me I was too sny.  but it was the proud Weekes way!"  Helmi waited until the middle of  the month. Still no letter, no word.  There was no use going to the post-  office. The same auswer was inevitable���������"Nothing today." She * could  hear it all the time, beating, beating  oa a sore spot in her heart. But always she had been able to smile and  say something, words she had prepared on tlie way down.  One day she went to the stuffy little mine office and spoke to tlie timekeeper, about the wages Jack had not  taken. The timekeeper sat in his  shirt-sleeves malcing out his accounts. The place reeked of stale tobacco, and dust lay gray on the window-sill. Quite frankly Helmi explained her reason for going to tho  city.  The tianekceper looked confused  and embarrassed. "I'm awful sorry,  Helmi," he said, "but it looks aa it  there has been a mi.������Jtake here some  place; Thoro was two hundred dol-  laru owing to Jack when he left, but  a man came ono day with .an order  from Jack and I gave him tho money.
