Only a few years ago there was a feeling throughout Canada that the  construction of railways in the Dominion had been rather oyerdpnc. This  opinion was freely stated "by many men in public life, by bank presideuts  ancl financiers, and found expression in newspapers all over the country. The  statement was frequently made that Canada had built railways fifty years in  advance of the time when they would be needed and the population and productive capacity of tlie country warranted. The greatest financial danger  confronting the Dominion, it was alleged, was its iiea-*y cornmitraeuts on  account of railways.  The fact that Canada possesses tlao greatest railway mileage per  capita of any country in the world, and the further fact that a few years ago  during tlie war the Canadian Northern, Grand Trunk and Grand Trunk Pacific Railways got into financial difficulties and had to be taken over by the  Dominion Government, and that for some years following during the postwar depression the Canadian National was operated at a heavy financial  loss, no doubt accounted for these rather pessimistic views. An entirely ctif-  - ferent opinion exists today.  When the C.P.R. was first projected the same faint-hearted views prevailed. The idea of a transcontinental railway across Canada from tlie  Atlantic to thee Pacific, crossing thousands of miles of undeveloped prairie  land and over the Rocky Mountains, was ridiculed in the English press as  the dream of madmen, and even in Canada it was predicted that such a railway would never earn the cost ol* its axle grease. The World realizes today  how false all these dire predictions have proven to be.  The opinions expressed only a few years ago during the anxious days or  the war and the world depression which followed are proving to be equally  erroneous.  In a most instructive address before the Canadian Club at Regina recently, Mr. Cyril Young, of the Industrial Development Department of the  Canadian National Railways, stated, that for hundreds of miles along the  main line of^the new transcontinental, through the clay belt of Ontario, the  railway was earning an operating surplus, while bringing about settlement  and building up important industries, giving to Canada what heretofore it  has lacked, depth in addition to its immense width.  In the past, Canada has boasted of its boundaries resting upon two  oceans, east and west. Now, with the rapid pushing forward of the Hudson  Bay Railway, Canada looks forward -with eager anticipation and confidence  to the day not far distant when its commerce -will likewise pass through a  third ocean on the north. And even before that railway is completed to tidewater, a branch line is being rushed to completion in order to handle the  enormous traffic which will result from the development of the Flin Flon  and other mining areas of the north which, it is predicted, will rival the richest mineral areas in the known world.  Today, instead of believing that railway construction has been overdone  in Canada, the two great railway systems of the Dominion are steadily increasing their, construction programmes. Last year Parliament authorized  an extensive branch lines construction programme for the Canadian National,  largely in. Western Canada, and providing for the building within three years  of some hundreds of miles of new railways. That work, which was started  last year, is to be pushed with vigor during 1928.  Nor does the C.P.R. lag behind. The annual report of that Company is-  stied last month records the fact that during 1927 no less than 203 miles of  new branch lines were graded and track laid on 170 miles, while for the year  1928 the directors recommend the building of no less than eleven extensions  in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan involving the construction of  an additional 247 miles of new lines.  Not to be outdone-by the West, the Ontario Government is steadily  pushing its system northward towards Hudson Bay, while branch feeders are  spreading out frito districts where mining developments are taking place.  " The Government at Ottawa' is confronted with applications for new railway charters for lines in northern Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia aggregating thousands of miles with a view to providing for the opening up and development of the north country and the creation of new outlets to the Pacific.  These are thc answers aiow being given to those who predicted disaster  for Canada on accoitht of its railway construction of a few short years ago.  Take Saskatchewan as an example. Youngest among thc provinces it already  enjoys a railway mileage second, only to that of Ontario, and during this  year of 1928 work will "be in progress upon approximately 500 miles of new-  branch lines, not including the Hudson Bay Railway and the Flin 'Flon  branch, both of which will directly serve the Province.  And as if to provide the final answer to the faint-hearted of a few years  ugo, the Canadian National has turned its operating deficits into substantial  operating surpluses, surpluses sufficiently large to meet all the interest  payments on bonds and debentures held by the public, while, through the  encouragement given to settlement and industrial development all over the  country, the Federal Government is receiving a substantial, albeit indirect,  return for the money Canada has invested in that system.  Railway development, past, present, and future, is tho foundation upon  which Cnnndinns are erecting a strong, prosperous, and ultimately self-contained nation, a nation that la destined to occupy a place in tho very front  rank of world powers.  Growth Of Catholic CSiurcta  Catholics In United States Now Total  Nearly Twenty Million  There are 19,689,409 Catholics in  the United States, the official Catholic directory for 1928 shows. This is  an.increase of 205,753 over last year.  The total of Catholic ^hurches in  the U.S. was listed at 16,293, with 25,-  773 priests'. Of the latter, four are  cardinal-archbishops, thirteen archbishops, and 91 bishops.  -#-������  BBHflHHBBBflB  Save  e Valuable  "Poker Handsn  it  a  CB^-jr-fc-a-a.1*^ wi*****!**  n  Ml fi.-t-Ul*i   AVTMl  AN AID TO HEALTH  You Can Lay the Foundation Of  Good Health Now By Building*  Up Your Blood and Strengthening Your Nerves Through  the Use Of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.  The good old fashion of taking a  tonic j-n the Springtime, like most of  the customs of our grandparents,  is  based upon sound common sense and  good medical practice.    Winter Is always a trying time for those who are  not in rugged health.       Many men,  women and children go through the  winter on reserve strength they have  stored up during the sunny summer  months, and grow increasingly pale  and languid as the spring days approach. . A tonic for the blood and  nerves at this time will do much for  such people, by putting color in the  cheeks and banishing that tired feeling that worries thousands,of people  at this season oJF'ithe year.  It is impossible to be energetic if  your blood" is thin and weak, or if  your nerves are. frayed or shattered.  You cannot compete -with others if  you do not get refreshing sleep at  night, or if your appetite is poor or  you are losing weight. STou need a  tonic at this time to add to your  efficiency now,'as well as to save you  from suffering later on. And in" all  the realm of medicine, there is no  safer or better tonic than Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These pills "tone  and enrich the blood which circulates  through every portion of the body,  strengthening jaded nerves and rundown organs, and bringing a feeling  of new strength and energy to weak,  easily tired, despondent men, women  and children. ������_  Mrs. L. Hupman, Summerville  Centre, N.S., writes:���������"Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills have been of the greatest  benefit to me. A few years ago I was  in a badly run down condition. I became so weak and nervous that I  could scarcely go about and doing my  housework left me completely used  up. Everything* seemed to worry me,  and I was in rt very discouraged condition when I began taking Dr. Wll-  pllls helping mc, and continuing their  liams' Pink Pills. I soon found the  use I fully rcgaified my health. Since  then I always take a few boxes in the  Spring to build me up for the hot  weather, and always I llnd the best  results. I    therefore    cheerfully  recommend these pills as the best of  health builders.  You can get these pills from any  medicine dealer, or by mail at CO  cents a box from Tho Dr. William a*  Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Lesson: Mark 9.2-29.'^  Devotional Reading: John 15.1-8.  I  Explanations and Comments  . The Transfiguration, verses 2-8. ���������  Six days after Peter's expression of  his conviction that Jesus is the Christ,  Jesus took Peter, James, and John  apart from the rest .and ascended a  high mountain where he was transfigured before them. The other disciples may have been too superstitious  or too dull of comprehension for such  a revelation of His glory.  '"The longer we live the more profoundly we believe thait no one has  actually more than,; two or three  friends. He is a friend���������and only he  ���������to whom you can lay bare your  heart without the pledge of secrecy.  The real friend is interested in you���������  your joys, your triumphs, your failures become his very own."  Luke 9.20 says that the fashion of  His countenance was altered; Matthew 17.2 says "His face did shine as  the sun, "the glory of the Godhead  burst through thc veil of the flesh."  "It was not a splendour that fell on  Him from without, and lighted Him  up; the glory came from within;, it  corresponded to something going on  in His. mind."���������Davidson. It was as  He prayed, Matthew and Luke tell  us, that this transformation took  place. Tho story is preceded and followed In the Gospels by Christ's predictions of suffering, death, and resurrection. The Transfiguration was a  preparation for the events so near at  hand.

Canada's   Agricultural Wealth  In a recent article on Canada, Irving- Fisher. Professor of Economics.  Yale "University, stated in commenting- on agriculture in. the Dominion  "Canada is increasing her agricultural -wealth. Farm production amounting* to $1,700,000,000 diiring 1927, was  accompanied by the second largest  wheat crop. Montreal, handling about  400,000,000 bushels during the navi-  yg-ation season, claims first position  among the g-rain ports of the world."  A WONDERFUL TRIBUTE  "So  they were,"  he  answered.   "I?  waa raised on the farmy but I never?  liked it.   That's.why.I'cferne down to  New York in the    -St-ist   "place.    And-  when dad died I, sold, the farm and  bought the paper-���������the.old Middleboro  Gas6*te= Couldn't get    tJtts    virus    ot  printer's ink out of my System."  I waited for Bert to go on, but he  satd nothing more in response to my  question,    y  ���������-. -'I meant your gojd naine," I ventured after a. moment of silence.  "What sort of business have you been  in? You seem to have been successful."  Bert looked at me with a puzzled  expression, as if he thought I was  trying to kid him. "Why, I just told?  you," he said. *"I bought the Middleboro Gazette."  1 saw at once that x must havo  seemed stupid to Bert. Some big industry had picked Middleboro for its  plant and made the country village  into a big* city, as the General Electric did nt Schenectady. But for the  life of me x couldn't remember which  industry it was. Middleboro? I  couldn't think of anything to connect  the name of the town witb. But I  didn't let on to Bert.  "Oh, I see/" I responded cheerfully.  "And as the town grew big enough  for.- a daily you grew with it, eh ?  Fine I What's your population now,  anyway ?"  "About the same as it always has  been: maybe a little less," he answered. "Around 2,000. But we've got a  circulation of more than 3,000. Not soy  bad for a country weekly, what ?

Thus appealed to, ��������� Danny Corbett  went over to tlie couch and carefully  inspected the young thing that was  likely to make inroads in his" hard  eai*ned income. He -put his chapped  and dirty little hand very lightly on  the glassy, smooth head, and felt its  tiny beat. He gently touched the velvety cheek and found It soft as a  rose-leaf to his fingers. He put his  hand in his pocket and drew out thirty cents in change and looked hard  at it. He may have heen thinking of  cold winds and aching leg3- -he knew  something of them. But his answer  was, "Sure Mike! 1*11 do it. Are you  pretty sure her mother will die, Ma?"  l>anny's tone was , eager.  "We ain't wishin' her mother no  harm, Ma," JEfcosie quickly interposed,  seeing the rebuke tliat? waa coming  to her business jpai^Wfy.^  wishin' nobody iio harm?" Rosie was  very anxious not to prejudice the  case. "But we know there is always  a danger���������you know yourself, Ma,  that none of us knows one day from  another,-���������we're here today and away  tomorrow, as I have of ten heard you  say���������and Danny and me are just  talkin' it over in case somethin*  should happen���������that's all."  The warm heart of Maggie Corbett was tender to her offspring at.  that moment. "Look at that, John,  would you? Good little things, after  all, and yet it was only this mornin'  they were fightin' like drunken shan-  tymen. I often thought if they had  had a baby in the house it might have  softened them. Well, don't be settin*  your hearts on this wee one, for her  mother is not goin' to die, I don't  think; though you never can tell  about a -woman when ber man has  gone buck on her."  Outside the snow was still falling.  The evergreen trees wero bending  with the "weight of it, their branches  hanging down like great white bears'  paws. Christmas "Eve surged forward  with,  all  its   infectious   gladness   as  the crowds of belated shoppers increased.

Rosy ishaded lamps threw patches of  reliance on the glistening snow.  Christmas wreaths tied with satin  streamers glowed deeply red against  the windows.

At the corner of Second Street and  Jasper Avenue a congested street car  stopped to let out a nock of little  girls and iK>y������ ou. tlieii: way to -tlxe  Christmjas tree in the First Baptist  Church. Certain of the little gfirls,  with their curls protected from the  falling show by being tucked safely  away under their toques, were; carrying mysterious pasteboard boxes  containing ��������� sashe3 and bows and  wings- for the fairies. Others of them  were darkly hooded and masked,  their identity and sex entirely un-  guessed, for were they not cast for  the dreadful witches of Shadowland?  Accompanying them was a liberal  sprinkling of parents, mostly mothers, with a few self-conscious fathers  who had the appearance of having  been dragged tout. The mothers had  an air of veryr conscious -Unconcern,  as if they did not know their little  boy3 or girls were, going to take a  part that was bound to be the very  best thing on the program.  The Salvation Army Citadel blazed  with light and pulsed with' activity,  for the 'big ..supper; where, .all were  welcome, wa& going on, and! the odors  of turkey and sage and onions, drifting out into the street, compelled the  reluctant ones to go_ in.

The city's  lighisPwetjs-somany aaid so bright  againstythe deep India blue of the  sky, it was hard to tell thenx from the  stars, but high overhead was to be  seen the fNorth Star, beloved of all  bewildered travellers. Now it twinkled and gleamed above- all these  scenes of good fellowship and merrymaking with unmistakable approval.  Into, the uncurtained window of the  Corbett's big room it peered -vfrith a  deeper interest and kindlier understanding, for it could see that the  Winnipeg couch was drawn out from  the wall to make it into a full-sised  bed, and in it there slept the unperturbed young Lili With Rose Corbett  on one side of her and Daniel Corbett on the other���������her two new  friends, who had covenanted in her  presence and in the presence of each  other to furnish her with shelter,  care and sustenance in the event of  her mother's Ue������th.

Helmi -was .'* awakened from her  dream by the entrance of a little man  with a slender black bag in his hand.  He caine in without knocking, andj  stood at the bottom of the bed regarding her critically. Before he  could yframe a question Mrs. Corbett  had arrived, having* seen the Doctors  car at the front .door.  Mrs. Russell, who lived in No. 16  and did the cleaning in the City Hall,  and therefore knew something of the  correct forms of procedure, had notified the Department of the happening  in No. 18.

Dr.v Symond  was prepared to be quite stern.

"Ten  little aangers and ten little toes'^���������  making twenty in .all���������and: there you  have their number. Easy to remember isn't it?  And when should you begin to look  for them ? About the stgth or seventh  month.  And which comes^first? As a rule,  the lower front teeth, the central incisor.  So after all baby's fretfulness he  has a brand new tooth or two, so  white and so sound they look, that  you never give a thought to future  tooth troubles.  Then the other ehjhteen or nineteen white coated little "millers" will  follow-* at somewhat regular Intervals  until Sonny is two years old, when he  should have his full temporary set.  These are the temporary or deciduous teeth, being- known also as tlie  "milk teeth," from which you will be  aware, of course, that they won't be  retained right through adult age.  They should all remain in place, however, until about the Seventh year,  when, through the natural process of  shedding, they commence to be lost.  Then as the time "approaches for  the eruption of the second set, unless  the first teeth are sufficiently separated in front to allow one or two  thicknesses of blotting paper between  them, the arches have not properly  expanded and the second set is certain to be crowded and irregular. In  such a case,, the family dentist should  always be consulted.  Since Sonny is going- to lose these  small teeth In good timo and get a  nice new set, #y bother to care for  them?  Well, little Sonny doea not want a  tooth-ache any more than do you, and  for several other good reasons of  which moreM:o follow.
