There is at the present time such widespread discussion throughout  Canada of the subject of immigration, together with its allied subjects of  assimilation of non-British peoples into the Canadian fatally, education of  both the native born and new comers, including mastery of the English  language by the latter, that it is well people generally should have placed  before them tlie actual facts and be glided by those facts rather than general assertions in. support of which no proof is advanced. It is well that  these discussions take place, provided they are fair and reasonable and based  upon facts rather than hearsay. As a contribution to such constructive discussion of an important national question this article is written.  According to the official census figures for the three prairie provinces  of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta for the yeafs 1916, 1921 and 1925,  the British-horn and the foreign-horn were as follows:  Nations Jake Naval Holiday  For First &hie In Century No Battler  ships Being Buiii.  For the" first time for many centuries, certainly asfar hack as the rei<**is  of Henrjr'Wiili.thkre is not a single  battleship i bulldihgy anywhere, now  that H.M.S, Rodhey has passed into  commission. , ''The Naval Holiday,"  which was ^reclaimed when the  Washington Treaty-was signed, has  really begijji.  Will the Rodney he the last battleship to be constructed? That is not  an idle ouestion. " It concerns intimately the taxpayers of the British  Empire, ^ the TJnited States, and  Japan, if not also y, the peoples^ of  France iind Italy, whose representatives also signed the Treaty. Under  the terms of that memorable agreement, the building of battleships will  be resumed in 19$1. and designs are  already being prepared, at any rate  in the TJnited States.    ,  r  cuTPsiue  r  ootning���������  yet aman's  ^MP>    W   SmmmS Mr������ara������  Sim      ��������� imm^^     mmm-     ?^g- ^ ^^  S^      ^r^^^   * ^��������� Wt  MANITOBA  British-born Foreign-born  1921  1925  -I 1 T TAA  500,860 109,258  514,908 110.932  S ASKATCB E W AN  Total  553,860  S10.118  625, S40  ������s  647.835  757,510  807,737  496,525  5S8.454  594,372  1916 446,632 201.203  1921 558.1S8 199.322  1926 611,678 196,059  ALBERTA  1916 329,495 167,030  1921 V414,4S2 173,972  1926 435,756 158,616  The figures of British-horn or foreign-born for the year 1926 do riot Include Indians, of which there were 13,216 in Manitoha, 13,001 in Saskatchewan, and. 13,227 in Alberta.  The above official figures disclose the fact that whereas the total population of the three prairie provinces increased during the ten-year period  1916 to 1926, by 329,729, the British-born population increased by 350,059,  the difference he ing accounted for hy a decrease in the foreign-born population of 20,330.  Evidence as to -whether or not new comers to these Western provinces  and the Canadian-born children of parents of non-British origin are being  assimilated into the Canadian family; also whether or not education of the  people is keeping pace with the growth in population, Is furnished hy statistics of illiteracy compiled by the census enumerators, and set forth in the  following table of persons ten years of age or over:  MANITOBA  New Fighting 'Planes  row ISeslgned To Carry  Ouns On Wings  Fighting planes bearing gun turrets on their wings are being considered by the Air Ministry, it has  been revealed. One big bomber has  been designed for carrying three turrets, one on each wing tip and .another in the centre. Another machine  has a turret In the tail for mounting  machine guns.  Royal Air Force officers are particularly interested in the" tall turret design, which is said to have no "blind  spots" or places ^Svhere the gunners  can not aim at a foe. On the planes  with turrets handrails are provided  so they can be manned while in flight.  NEW STRENCTH^OR  WEAK STOMACHS  '  Per Gent.

In Saskatchawan, with 130,775 more people ten years of age or ovci\  there were 12,267 fewer people of the illiterate class.  In Alberta, where the number of persons ten years of age or over increased by 92,998, thc number of the illiterate decreased by 4,144.  The official figures quoted in tlie above two tables conclusively show  that the danger feared toy many people of these Western Provinces losing  their British and Canadian character is not being realized; that, on the  contrary, thc percentage of foreign-born to British-born Is steadily decreasing-  They further establish thc fact that steadily, even rapidly, the children  and the yotmger generations of non-British settlers are learning to read and  write English, thus fitting themselves to take their place in and bo efficient  members of a common Canadian citizenship.  Young Wife: "X took thc recipe for  this cake out of the book."  Husband; "You did perfectly right.  It should never have been put in."  Wc don't blame some men for refusing to take their own advice.  Most passenger steamships crossing the Atlantic publish a newspaper  every day, containing the latest radio  news.  Indigestion.     Disappears     When  the Blood Is Enriched  The most urgent need of all who  suffer from any form of indigestion is  a tonic to enrich the blood. Pain and  distress after eating is the way the  stomach shows that it is too weak to I _. ,.  perform the work   of   digesting   the   rile results are  food it takes.  fNeytr strength is given  to weak stomach^ by Dr. Williams'  Pink  Pills because  they1 purify  and  enrich the fblood.    This accounts for  the speedy relief    in    stomach    disorders  that  follows  the use of this  medicine.   The value of this medicine  in cases of indigestion is shown by  the case of Mrs. George W. Johnson,  Leqtiille, N.S., who says:���������"J have no  hesitation in recommending Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.   I was greatly disr  tressed   -with   indigestion.        Always  after eating I suffered from pains in  the   stomach   and   other   distressing  symptoms. I tried different remedies,  but without getting relief.   I -was advised hy a friend to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills .which I readily did, and I  am feeling very grateful ever since to  the person who gave me the advice.  The very first box helped me and before I had taken a half dozen boxes I  was restored   to   my   former   good  health and all traces of this distressing trouble disappeared. It    is    now  about a year since I took the pills,  and I have not been troubled with indigestion since. I have  taken  every  occasion to recommend Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills to those   in   need    of    a  medicine and shall continue to do so."  A little booklet, "What to Eat and  How to Eat," will he sent free to anyone asking for It. You can get tho  pills from any medicine dealer or by  mail at 50c. a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  Greatest Cause Of Accidents  *    Automobile Is Chief Oifessder According To Insurance Company  Report  What causes accidents,  anyway ?  Travelers Insurance Co. recently  drew up a table of causes of accidental deaths based on its own statistics,  interesting and informative.  According to this tabulation, the  automobile is the chief offender, 29  per cent, of all fatal accidents being  caused by traffic. A close second is  the home accident, which accounts  for 26 per cent. Sports and recreation  are in third place with 20 per cent.  Western Canada Airways  .

With  the coming of" a United States na!h-  ister, Canada has assumed certain  national responsibilities. He did not  believe that a glorified* commercial  traveller was the highest form of  representation needed hy Canada in  foreign countries. The appointment  of a 'Canadian minister to Washington (was another step in national responsibility. *       y? -'  He thought the appointments of  last year did/not come with any-surprise as they had been discussed for  . some tfrhef The selectiony :of the  United States to represent that coun-  . try here was very satisfactory. The  people of Canada -were disposed to  look upon Canada's adventure into  foreign diplomacy as settled but he  thought there should have been naore  preparation and knowledge given he-  fore sending envoys to Paris - and  Tokio.  i Senator McLennan further observed: "I take upon myself to say that.  I believe the establishment of legations other than with Washington  have not been authorized by Parliament br people of Canada. To that  extent, if for ni other reason, they  are objectionable. . I also think that  such an establishment is premature;  that we can get on as well without  tlfem by continuing the use of existing diplomatic machinery which  Great Britain has*placed at our disposal."  He believed at the earliest opportunity Cajnada should begin training  juniors for diplomatic service.  Hon.

He  welcomed the approval of public jnen  of the creation of a legation at Washington. This was the work of all  parties, having emanated from Sir  Robert Borden, being endorsed by  Mr. Meighen and completed by the  present Government.

P''s.p  New^Seed GraiH Warehouse  Plan To Construct a Modern Plant  ' ,A.t yMoose Jaw"  Ottawa.���������There is every likelihood  of a new seed grain warehouse being  established at Moose Jaw at a cost of  something over $ 100,000. The present  building* is not suited to the purpose  and a. move is on foot for a new one.  It is being sponsored by J. Gordon  Ross, M.P. for Moose Jaw, and backed by Hon. C. M. Hamilton, provincial  minister of agriculture, who had a  conference on the subject with Hon.  W.R.Motherwell.  The plan is te construct a most  modern plant, the Dominion Government, the province and the association operating the present warehouse,  each contributing one-third of the  cost.  There is reason to expect that,  when the supplementary estimates  come down, the Dominion 'Government will provide its^share. This  would ensure the warehouse because  the other- prospective contributors are  ready to put up their share.

Should Baby Get?  ������A Ruiious Authority's "Rule  <By UttthBrittairt  Baby specialists agree nowadays,  that during tho first six months, babies must have three ounces of fluid  per potmcl of body weight daily. An  eight pound baby, for instance, needs  twenty-four ounces of fluid. Later on  tho  rule  Is  two ounces  of fluid  per  ^dvertiaing. And the foreign advertiser pays as high a rate as the local  merchant, or higher in many cases." -  "You can buy space in daily newspapers at a great variety of rates,"  put in an editor from Oklahoma, "depending upon the amount of space  used, the number of insertions in -a  given time, and other considerations.  The tendency in the country press is  toward a fiat rate per inch for everybody, ao patter how large the advertisement or how? often it -runs.  That is one of the things our state  and national editorial associations  have been educating ojur members  to="  "There must have been some effective educational efforts among local  merchants too," I suggested, remembering old Otto Muncaster's six barrels of lime.  "That of course," replied the Oklahoma man; "but how*- the small-town  business men have learned that lesson! Never heard of Bob Mooney.-did  you ? His store is in an Oklahoma  town which had 906. population the  last time they took the census; but  Bob does $2,000,000 a year in business, all from advertising 4n the  country weeklies around his part of  the state.  "What has happened in this country since the war is - that business  everywhere is done in the same way  and in ? the same commodities," he  went on. "There is no longer any  great difference between the city markets and the country markets except  in the volume of business done in a  given area. The only differences now  are of degree, not of kind. Country  folk buy the same things city folk  buy; country merchants carry thc  .same lines, you can find in State  Street or '��������� Fifth Avenue. And the  country newspaper presents the story  of thc country merchant to its readers in the same way the city papers  do.

The reduction has come about for two main  reasons; first, the growth of some  towns into daily-paper size, but prin  cipally from the consolidation of competing papers, making one prosperous paper where two or three were  struggling for existence.

Don't you  find that the child's dread of. these  medicines often do more harm than  good?  Baby's Own Tablets are the modern substitute for these nauseous  doses. They are the very medicine the  child requires and are so pleasant to  take that they are as easy to administer as a glass of water. They are  the perfect remedy for all the minor  ailments of little ones, being' absolutely guaranteed free from injurious  drugs. . t '  Baby's Own Tablets accomplish all  that castor oil and other toad-tasting  remedies can do. In fact they accomplish more as they do not leave the  child exhausted from its struggle  against taking medicine.

Explanations and Comments  The Great Refusal, 'i6JiV-J22.';---'  "Good Teacher, what shall I do that  I may inherit eternal life?" was?the  question which a young aristocrat  put to Jesus one day, as he ran and  kneeled down before Him. He realized  that he had missed the summum bon-  um, the greatest good, of life, and he  believed that there were certain good  things (Matthew 19-16), which he  could do to win it.  "Why callest thou Me good ?" Jesus  QUeatLo������i?d! in His *n������*������   ������r)Hi������-������������y  "Wona  is good save    one, even   God."   This  question seems a   challenge   to    the  vouh0* r-ntrn wJjq had used the word  good with as little thought as we do  when we say "Good morning." Jesus  would have him weigh his words and  see whether he meant what he said.  The young man was a close student  of the Law; he came to Jesus &s a  peripatetic  pupil  seeking  the   latest  knowledge. The maxim of the rabbis,  "There is nothing good but the Law"  ���������held full sway over hia mind. Jesus  had to fling- him put of the groove and  suggest a goodness higher than the  goodness of the Law���������namely, God's  goodness. Thou callest Me good���������you  are judging from the point of view  of the Law���������you yare saying what you  would say to   any   rabbi. rI   am  not  good in that sense, ft am good in a  better sense. There is none good Tbut  Glod;  the  goodness I have  is  God's  goodness.    That is what you have to  learn. To learn it, become My disciple,  Jesus looking, upon thc young man  loved hint.   "Ohe% thingsythou lackest,"  Jesus said. His f penetrating    glance  showed him. the man's dissatisfaction  with himself, his soul-discontent, his  earnestness in seeking 'moral heights  to which he knew he had not attained,  and to which he knew not the way.  "The diagnosis of Jesus was unerring. Two things were wrong in this  young man. The commands he had  kept were chiefly negative. They were  summed up in the rabbinical saying:  Thou shalt not do unto others what  thou wouldest not have other do to  thee.' Our Lord changed the negative  path of duty into the positive all  along the line. * He applied his great  principle to this young man's case.  'Give yourself to others,' He said,  'contribute to others' good.'  "But there was another fatal weakness in this delightful and admirable  person. *He clung to his wealth in a  ������way quite incompatible \vith any just  estimation of the higher good. There  was hidden in that love of riches a  luxurious self-love and a lack of sympathy with the wants of men that  made it endanger'the very roots of  character.' He was*' accustomed to a  cushioned life. He was-'being made a  prisoner for life. He must find a way  of escape."���������R. C. Gillie.   .  "f������ell whatsoever, thou hast, and  give to the poor." This was not a universal command of Jesus; it was not  spoken to all the rich in general, but  only to this rich man in particular.  To part with his possessions waa a  necessary thing for this man; in an- |  other man the one thing necessary  might be something different. Mary  and Martha and Lazarus were rich,  but Jesus never gave them this counsel. Jesus never condemned riches in  themselves; he condemned the devotion to riches which makes one lose  his sense of the value of better  things. -a  The one thing we lack may be the  carrying on of our business in accordance with Christian principles; it may  "be the engaging' in genuine prayer; it  may be the rendering of some service; whatever it is, each one himself  best knows.  r The" cool, comforting flavor  of .WRtGTLEY' S Spearmint  is a tasting pleasure, -  It cleanses the mouth sifter  an*ii.M_<aiij������������i������������c!s<Jss tsste sisA  sweet breath.

Aliother night f she    saw    a    trim  young lady, with many bags, a pair  of  snowshaes,  a. fcamera fslung over  her shoulder,, a tapestry purse and a  huge white fox fur, coming down the  ."platform��������� She was met -by a plain,  hard working jwomari, with wisps of  gray   hair   escaping  frona   the   hard  little nub at the back of her head, a  skirt that did not match her coat and  needed   to   be   pulled   straight���������evidently "put on in a hurry; and with  feet   disfigured with -bunions,   hands  "red and bare, and shoulders bent.  Helmi watched the .meeting. The  girl was the last to leave the train,  and the mother had almost given her  up, and had gone to the wicket to see  if a wire had come. While the mother  was at the wicket the "girl came  bursting into the station. "Mother,"  she called, ''Here I am, I was helping a lady-with her. baby." ,^;v ;  TEe. "two womenc caught. each other  y in a warm embrace, and as they were  leaving the? station Helmi heard the  girl say,' "The trustees paid me for  "the whole time, and now, old.girl, you  will have that fur coat-���������we'll, get it  tomorrow**"  Helmi saw the mother's arm tighten. The girl's eyes were defiant and  yproud. She dared    anyone    to    even  ���������think she thought her mother shabby.  '"* Helmi wondered, wondered.  When .the last person had come  through and the floors wesre closed,  Helmi walked slowlyT to <ihe North  Star' Rooming    House,    lonely,   tired  ing their reluctant rounds. She had  written to good old Sim, giving nim  her address���������he would see Jack if he  came. *  At the &���������������,& pf two wp������fes Ffelmi *ha-  gan to look   for   a    situation.    Her  money had lasted until now, but the  little stock in the black, shiny purse  had dwindled and dwindled. Fortunately her clothes, by carerul brushing  and  pressing were  still  presentable.  The kindness of the corbett family,  and the exquisite  joy she  found  i^  caring  for  the   little  Lili,   kept  her  heart from breaking with loneliness.  The nights were the worst; even the  i egular breathing of tne warm little  treasure beside her,  the feel of the  velvety "little fingers   which    clasped  hers, could not entirely win her away  from her sorrow, "Why had God forsaken  her?   Or was  He  just  doing  this to try her faith, as he tried that  of Job. Then she thought *of    Abraham, whom God couuiiauucd to sacrifice his little son. That was a terrible story, and Helmi wished she had  never heard it, even if God did repent  and say, voh,ywell? now that I know  ���������"on would' do it that's  all right���������-I  just wanted to be sure." In happier  days   Helmi  had  decided   the   story  wasn't  true  at all. God wasn't like  that, ^someone had just made up^that  story. Now, she ivasn't so sure.  Often in these long dark nights,.  Helmi thought of Aunt Lili. It had  all seemed ysp easy when Aunt Lili  came baclcffor the visit to Finland,  and now. Aunt Lili, was gone, her  little girl too. She had come to Canada so sure she could...' conquer all  difficulties,4ahd she had come on evil  days* But little Lili here would have  a chance. .?. . . One might succeed out of four . . ?. . surely God  would let one Finn girl out of four do  well in Canada! Maybe it was too  much for her to expect to succeed  and be happy���������but she could be the  ladder on which dear little Lili would  rise, like the woman, at the station,  bent, shabby, tired; with the glorious  successful daughter, who loved her  mother loyally in spite of her old-  fashioned dress and knotted hands.  It was only when Helmi could get  her thoughts out of the lonely, dark  roads where, .disappointments and  loneliness lurked, into the pleasant  green meadows of tne future where  plans yfor * little Lili could be made,  that peace would come to her, and to  her burning eyes the blessed dews of  sleep. ���������  ? On the day that Lili was three  weeks old Helmi went to the Employment Bureau to Iodic for work.  She wore the blue motor coat, a black  velvet hat on which she had transplanted the flowers from her summer  hat, and her best shoes and gloves.  She was still pale, and her cheeks had  grown thinner.  "It's a question," said Mrs, Corbett,  eyeing her critically, "how a person  should dress when lookin* for-work.

Mrs. Angus looked sternly at Miss  Ritchie. What did she mean by exposing patrons to the possibility of  getting a girl who, by her own oon-  fession, had no reefrences.  Miss Ritchie asked Helmi if she  could send and get hec references.  Helmi shook her head. "I would  rather not," she said.  To Be Continued.)
