Time Table No. 51  Commenting on the immigration to  Cnnad.-.  the Spol'CMiuui   Rfiew says  The Salvation Army is making itself an effective' immifiralion agency  for western Canada. About'3500  British people are to bc brought out  in lhc next few weeks directly under  the care of the army. Of this number'it is expected that about fifteen  hundred will remain in -Manitoba and  thc others go farther west to' Saskatchewan. . The new arrivals will  be chiefly, if not exclusively, farm  laborers, though many of them may  have to gain experience on farms in  their new homes.  The movement has been under''way  for some time, and Saldatipri army  olliccrs, from General Booth down,  have endeavored to make it:-clear  that they would have nothing to do  with any proposn.1 looking to Uie  dumping on Canada , of the worthless  or criminal classes of Great Britain.  The only people to be dealt with  nre tlie hard-Working, seT-sustaining,  -English people who wish to go to  the land and improve tlip'r position  in life. Naturally the movement'is  receiving e.veny enfouraeement- from  the oJIieiaia and people of Canada.  The new arrivals will form a much  more desirable class of settlers, thuli  thc .thousands who are coming to  the United Stales from the", congested districts of .southern Europe, and  it wo-nd be a good lliin.fi: for this  country if some similar effort *weic  put forth to encourage an et'lially ���������desirable''class  tothe  western states-  In connection with thc coming of  these people to CVtada, aiTango-  ments have been made in advance;loathe immediate employment of aTaree.  portion of them. Applicationi'b'lanl's  were sent .'out to the farmers in "the  provinces to be filled and retiurncd  showing where.help is wanted and! pre  number     of hands  desired. Large  numbers of these have been returned  to the army hcadqiiart?r,s 'in 'Winnipeg, where !a system has been perfected for forwaoding the men as  soon as they arn\e. The information received from the farmers shows  whether they were married or single  men; whether they can give employment to thc wile; nature of the wifes  duties; whether experienced or inexperienced help is wanted; wages to  be Paid, nnd for how many months  employment can be   gi\cn.  The system looks like a good one,  r.n<i, considering the annual scarcity  of laborers in the harvest season,  the Salvation ."rmy is conferring  benefits on the n'M.eis as-well ns  on the people it Lnngs out to iil-w  homes.  92-  LADIES' NIGHTDRESSES,   from  Each  25 CENTS.

Gorilla  like  muscles  are now   as wholly, out of plaice and  aw useless as are the long arms of our  ancestors, and   as it was uneconomical to     support,  these types  of men  were     crowded     out by the weaker.
