Canadian  National  Railways  Design New Type Locomotive  Represents    Revolutionary    Advance  In Motive Power Equipment and  "SISLmVy Supercede StciUii Eiigaiits  ; A new locomotive which ^represents a revolutionary "departure from  all present standards and practise  and' which may render the steam  locomotive as extinct as the "dodo"  bas been placed in service "by the  Canadian National Railways. Presenting a tremendous advance In the  use of the oil-electric type of - locomotive it forms a disinctive offering  on fhe part of Canadian engineers  towards the solution of the transportation problems of this continent.

The new oil-electric  locomotive ia considered to be capable of  even greater performance.  The new locomotive is the further practical application of the use of  fuel oil in railway transportation in  which an oil engine is used to drive  a generator for supplying electrical*  energy to the propulsion nSotors,  Power iand speed are obtained at  costs iai* below those of .coal firecl  steam driven locomotives.  Simple To Operate  In  appearance    it    resembles    the  electric type.    The operation is simple, the engineman directing the propulsion by means    of    a    controller  similar to that used on, an electrically  driven tram car.      This controller and  , an airbrake valve    give    the    driver  [ complete  control  of   the   locomotive.

They stopped for three days at Syracuse, on the island of Sicily, and for  a day at Rbegium, on the Italian  coast. PuteoIL the corn mart of  Italy, oh the Bay of Naples, was the  destination of the ship. There a week  was spent.

One calm Sunday morning Donald  paddled across the lake to. try: the.fly  at the^mputh of the small creek which  flowed past the trapper's cabin. The  clear water was as-smooth as glass  and   the  trout   refused  to   be   lured  from the depths. After casting: steadily for fifteen rhihutes without a rise,  he sat down to enjoy a smokes. Sounds  from afar came with surprising clearness  through the quiet air.       Andy  was splitting wood outside the cabSn  ���������door,  and the sound of his axs sisd  the words of his song hrbught,_ a medley of returning echoes. Loons gabbled,  wild ducks of many  varieties  shifted their positions with a whistling rush of wings.      The    "cbee-ry  fchee-ry" of a    flock    of   chickadees  sounded from a copse of willows on  yuie creek bank.     The warmth of the  morning gave promise of a.- uot ������aay  f when the sun should reach the zenith.  A breath off    cool    air    rippled    the  flake's  surface, bringing -with it j the  faint rumble of a-waterfall high up  the mountain-side. Donald paddled to  L������he shorey^erossed  the rustic  bridge  to where the trapper was 'working in  his garden, and sat- down on a convenient stump. _        . .  4*Good-mprning, John."  ^"Mornin',  ol'  timer."  "John, is there a waterfall on the  big creek?"  '���������Yes, I've heard 'em, an' I've  seen 'em from the ridge, but I ain't  ever: bin close to 'em."  -  "Do you think there would be any  fish at the foot of the falls ?"  "Couldn't say br timer..* * It ain't  never bin fished."  To the disciples' of Isaac Walton  the-expression "never been fished'*  brings an incomparable, thrill. To  cast, a fly on virgin waters is the  acme of bliss to an angler. Donald  unjointed his rod, slung his basket  over a shoulder and started toward  .*  the trail,  "Ye better let me fix ye up a lunch  ��������� to.take along," the trapper shouted  after him. '.'"���������'*  "Good suggestion," admitted Donald as he retraced his steps.  Fried eggs placed between slices  of snow-white bread, fresh doughnuts, cake and  cheese wero quickly  wade up in order to get within reach  of the pool. By leaping from rock to'  rock he managed to reach a flat  led^e near the side that sllo'vsd* him  perfect freedom for casting. The  spray reached him in the form of a  fine mist that felt grateful after his  exertions. A shaft of brilliant sunshine, looking like a searchlight  where it penetrated the heavy mist,  was reflected and refracted to form'  a rainbow that shone resplendently-  against the dark wall of the canyon.  On each side rose a sheer wall of  rock, with her^ and there a small fir  or ispruce clinging to fissures where  sufficient earth had accumulated to  give it nourishment; At the point  where the cataract struck the pool  therey was a mass of heaving, foaming water that spread in ever lessening v^aves to become gentle ripples  lapping isoftly on the shores.  The little birds known as water-  cusels, or dippers, were in their ele-  playin*^- the fish," he decided- to quit.  As he climbed the ridge the air above  felt like a breath from an oven in  contrast to the atmosphere, of the  .canyon.  Through a tali, stately grove of  pines Donald descried an open glade  whence came the sound of running  water. Ke walked through the dar������  aisles of towering trees, his feet making no sound on the thick carpet of  soft needles.,Pushing aside a growth  of low deciduous trees that fringed  <this open passage in the woods, hp  gazed upon a scene that held him entranced. At some time in the earth's  remote, history moving ice had goug-  eci out this -fclnv v&Hpv &5i^ Ief* si rich  "deposit of ��������� glacial silt. A small,  mountain stream cascaded from, a,  moss-covered cliff to fall from ledge  sparkling through the vividly green  grass and bright flowers which formed the carpet of the valley floor. The  brilliant columbine, interspersed with  the yellow marigold and dandelion,  made bright splotches of colour.  Wild roses hung in masses in the border of low green shrubs.

N.   u,   nm  which the turbulent waters roared.  they bobbed and curtsied, then flew  in under the waterfall to their hests  in. the damp niches of the rocks. Far  overhead, like a. speck in the azure  sky, a bald eagle careened and soared. Over all was the thunder of the  cataract drumming in Donald's ears  and giving to , tlie earth; a gentle  tremor.  He began eagerly to joint his rod,  attach, leader and flies, and unfold  his landing-net. '-There," he said,  when he had completed the task, "I'll  just throw that in to soak while 1  have a smoke."  He cast carelessly, laid the rod  down and reached for a cigarette.  "B-r-r-r-r," the reel shrilled madly.  He made a wild clutch for the rod,  retrieving it just as the tip entered  the water. A big>rainbow trout leaped  into the air with a flash of prismatic  colours, aiad made that graceful  curve that is so pleasing to the fisherman's eye; The five-ounce rod bent  double as he checked the trout's rush.  Then the line slackened as the" fish  turned and came toward him with incredible speed. He reeled- frantically to take in the slack line. Once more  the gamey trout turned and the line  was singing with the strain. Suddenly it went straight down and in the  pellucid depths he could see it lying  near the bottom with tail and fins  moving listlessly. Slowly he reeled in  the line, bringing the fish, nearer and  nearer. WitlS landing-net extended  Donald leaned forward; but with a  quick flirt of its tall the trout shot tb  tlie surface, sending a shower of  spray in his face. Then, leaping and  dashing���������tho reel singing merrily���������it  crossed the pool with renewed  energy. Unexpectedly tho whirr ot  the reel ceased and the rod'was nearly jerked from Donald's hands���������a detested "back laBb." In other words,  tho lino had tangled aj. tho reel. The  slender rod was bent nearly to a circle,  'Tt wonM; stand It," muttoredi Donald In a fever of excitement. He lowered the tip slowly to relieve the  strain on the rod, all tlio while working desperately to free tho tangle.  Snap! Tho fish with a tremendous  tug parted tlio loador, and with one  last triumphant Innp to flaunt ttn brilliant colours, It disappeared.  It la universally understood among  tho angltng fraternity that when a  fish Is lost under such conditions the*  Recording Angel turns hor head.

The beiHsjisinp  of these rings may be ������k> single mushroom which drops its spore's in a circle about its s base. The next season  a smaller ring of mushrooms drops*  ,a larger ring of spores, and so the  circle-expands year.,by year, exactly  as the ripple spread out on the surface of a pond when a stone is cast  into the -water. -  *-  Some fairy rings have been, estimated to be six hundred years old.  Legend informs us that these rings  are magic circles within which elves  and other nimble fairy folk hold their  revels at midnight. There is another  superstition that the rings mark the  spots where bolts of lightning have  struck the ground.  "A fairy-land" breathed Donald as  he stepped into the open.  It was warm, but now and agaih a  breeze, that had swept between snowcapped peaks, dropped down into the  valley and made the pines sway and  the willow arid alder leaves coolly*  rustle. At'the time of these visitations Donald threw back his head and  drew in deep breaths of the flower-  scented breeze.  Making his way to the foot of tho  tiny, falls Donald seated himself on  a soft bed of moss and proceeded to  eat his lunch. TViro birds, of the species known as "camp-robbers" , or  "whiskey-jacks," dropped ghost-like  from, nowhere and eyed him reproachfully. He threw them a crust of  bread. There \jras a shrill cry like  that of a havyk, that sent Che feath-^  ered visitors in terror to tho safety  of the trees, and a flash of blue landed" on tho broad. With a chuckle,  almost human a bluejay flow to the  top of a spruce to. enjoy his meal at  leisure.  Donald's happy laugh rang  throughout the sylvan glade and wos  rc-echool mockingly from tho ^liflfs.  the camp-rolibflrs emerged from their  retroat looking rather crestfallen.  They took ������o chances with tlio crust  thrown to tliem the second time.  Each seized a generous portion and  retreated hastily.  Donald selected a soft spot in tlie  shade ol? a small grove of cedars.  stretched hSmnclf at full lexigth cm  his back, ancl lighted a cigarette. The  sound of murmuring water������, tlie rustle of leaves, tho gentle sighing of the  plneK, and tho fragrant, balmy air  that fanned hhi face held a aoporlfic  Influence. Ho watched a fleecy cloud  floating far above the tree-tops in the  ethereal blue. A long-tailed wren, of  tho white throat and white *-y������ IIih'h  ���������sang Joyoualy from  a   tree nearby.  Donald's eyes closed slowly, and in  a moment he was in a doze. As  though in a dream he felt something  brush his face arid he shook his head.  An instant later the tip of> a cedar  fcloughPf ell fairly on his face. "He  brushed quicliy-f with his hand as  though ?to.,'^dislqdg.e. a fly. A larger  branch fell with a gentle swish to  land oh his nose. This time he opened his eyes and plubked the branch  from his face, ynbticihg as he did so  that it was freshly brokeny*"Odd,'-' he  thought, and lay with eyes half-  closed to detect the cause of this  singular occurrence.,  'Near the top of the four small  cedars under which he lay there  seemed to be ��������� a." nest-like' thickness.  There was a movement in the tops  of the trees, and Donald's amazed  eyes saw. a littie brown hand steal  forth holding a cedar tip.. Then a  small childish face appeared, surrounded by a mass of lovely golden  hai'rj The face was one of sheer,  exquisite blonde beauty, marked by  a pair of wide, "roguish blue eyes, as  blue as pansies, a small pensive  mouth that formed a cupid's bow,  and an impudent little nose dotted  wLtb freckles. As tbe slender hand  loosed the branch; Donald's astonish  ed  eyes looked  up   direcly  into  the  blue ones looking down on him so full  pf,mischief.      There was a. startled ,  gasp and the golden head disappeared amid a great swaying of branches.  Donald came slowly io his feet,  rubbing his eyes. Was this a faiitastic  dream, or had he actually seen a  child's face ? He looked at the  branches on the ground, and again  his eyes sought the tree-tops. He  could now see that some sort o'f big  nest was rbuilt within the tops of he  four small cedars.  "Hello," he ventured.  A slight rustling of the branches  .followed, but no answer.  "Hello, wood-nyhaph!"  (To Be-Coutinu*5d.>  "Now, Hiram, the new waitress is  a college girl,"  "What of that, maw?"  "So don't keep asking her to parse  the butter.

The question is a pertinent one, but, at the same tune is not its general  effect to create a false impression of actual conditions of farm life in the  West? Nevertheless, itfis deserving* of an answer.  In. the first place, it is well to consider that in no part of Canada, and  probably in no place in the world, is the wealth of the country so evenly  distributed among all the people as is" the case in Western Canada.      In = ...   ..      .    , ���������-,        ���������    .        ~       ,          . a                           m.         .    4. -    ..i.   -r-r -4. y. ������^' * ���������        i ������.t-   I surance  until   the last  possible  mo-  Eastern Canada, and to an even greater extent in the United States and the I t   - ^  older countries of the world great accumulations of wealtrrt are possessed I  by  a few individuals, families and  corporations, while living in the same j  communities are  bundreds  of  people,   some in dire   poverty,   and others  Jiving from hand to nfbuth day by "day, and denied the real comforts and  joys of life.  On the other hand, take  Saskatchewan as an example,���������-the  third most populous province of Canada,  with now close to one million  people, but which- alone among the provinces is not credited with even one  millionaire.  This is not to say there are no poor in Western. Canada. Unfortunately  there are. But the further fact is to be remembered that this West is a  new country,���������the newest in the civilized world,���������and that tens of thousands  of its people have only resided here a comparatively few- years, most of  whom came to better their condition and get a start in iife which was  denied to them in the lands from which they came. The fact that the per  capita wealth of the West is high in comparison with the Bast, while the  available per capita income to provide the niceties and pleasures of play  time is alleged to be small, is accounted for because the per capita income  has been invested in breaking new land, establishing new homes, securing  the necessary equipment wherewith to develop farm holdings, make improvements, and, generally, building for the future. These investments  represent pe"r"capita wealth, which is consequently high and steadily-rising.  The true test to apply to Western Canada is: Are our farm homes  becoming more comfortable, better equipped, more modern, as the years  pass ? Are the people who have come to this country decidedly .better off,  more comfortable and happy, than they were in the lands from, which they  came? Are they making real progress? Unquestionably, taking the country  as a whole, such questions must be answered in the affirmative.  Finally, is it true ��������� that the per capita income of the Western farmer  does not permit him and his family to enjoy the conveniences of, and pleasures of modern life? The telephone is one of the convenenees of modern  lire, and Western Canada ranks high among the countries of the world in the  number of telephones in rural homes. The radio is another such convenience, a source of instruction and pleasure, and western farm homes are  filled with them.  Or consider the automobile. Next to the United States with its many  Rreat cities, Canada surpasses the world in motor cars per capita, and  these Western Provinces, mainly a rurai^people, possess as many cars in  proportion to population as do the older provinces.  The rapidly increasing number of farm hjom.es surrounded by trees and  gardens testify to the fact that, as the pioneer days pass, incomes are sufficient to provide for the beautification of the home oxitside, and the same  process is going on inside countless rural homes.  Npr would it appear from the ever increasing number of rural residents  v. he visit the southern states, Eastern Canada, ancl the Pacific coast during  the winter months, that the net income from farm operations is totally  inadequate to provide some play time.  Nor must the fact be ignored that the provision of good roads, good  schools, community hails, churches, and other conveniences of Tife, are, in  the final analysis, provided,���������either through taxation or voluntary contribution,���������out of the per capita income. It has been sufficient to provide and  maintain these things in this new country on a scale, ancl in a short space  ot time, unsurpassed anywhere.

This was particularly  true in British Columbia. Reduction  of taxation in order to clear these  fields was desirable.  In reference to foreign trade, Mr.  llobb said Canadians should endeavor* to get their products into the  markets fof the world and that the  faclliies for doing-this, were greater  in Canada than in the United States.  The United States had not as good  it transportation system^from ^its ih-  f terior to its world ports as had Cam  ada.

On this basis, no progress is possible.  Lord Cecil said the first step in  any general disarmament agreemen_  must be an accord between the United States and Great Britain.  "It is manifestly to our interest to  accept without reserve the United  States ^absolute parley," lie asserted.  "I favor absolute and .complete  mathematical equality both in tons  and guns. I believe on "this basis a  full agreement can be reached." He  then turned to the development of  such an accord into a world-wide  .agreement.   ,>y y.?Wyy  Lieut.-Commander Joseph M.
