The full text of the  statement as it appeared in the London Times of that date is now available through a copy received in this  city, and reads as follows:  Though estimates of deaths over  the whole world for any single epidemic are very difficult to form,there  seem  to   be  reasonable grounds for  believing that some 6,000,000  per  sons have perished of influenza and  pneumonia during  the past   twelve  weeks.   Business has been interfered  with by tbe epidemic in every country   in   the   world, and  enormous  losses both in earning power and  in  trade have been suffered. ~The   cost  of Jthe  "influenza war" can not be  reckoned, but that it is colossal does  not admit of doubt:  'This plague,   then,1 generally   re-  garded with equinimity, is, it would  seem, five times more  deadly  than  war;   It has been'estimated that the  war caused the death of  20,000,000  persons  in   4������ years.    In the same  period at its epidemic rate influenza  would have killed 10S,000,C00.   The  visits of the raiding Gothas to  London were but as a   summer shower  compared with the deluge of  germs  which we have just deceived.    The  air raids, cost London some hundreds  of lives;the influenza has cost it upwards of 1",000.  Never since the Black Death   has  such a-plague swept over the face of  the   world;   never, perhaps,   has  a  plague been more stoically accepted.  In India alone over 2,000,000 deaths  occurred, Bombay   had   15,000   of  these;   Delhi, with'a population   of  only 200,000, had SuO deaths a day.  The  Punjab  lost  250,000 persons.  South   Africa   suffeaed   no   less severely. In Cape Town 2000 children  were left destitute as a result of the  disease,   while   the   plague   swept  through the native   areas  like   fire.  The   Commonwealth   of   Australia  sent a ship to Samoa with help, because the disease   was   affecting   SO  per cent of the natives.    The  white  population were only  able to   feed  the living and bury  the dead.    In  New Zealand  public  services were  stopped and business gravely   disorganized.    The ravages in America  have been appalling, nor has Canada  escaped. In Ontario and the western  provincas no fewer than 108 doctors  died of the epidemic, while the total  death   rate   in   Ontario alone   was  up   to   November.   A  large;  number of American  Indians   have  perished.    Europe   as a whole has  suffered in the same way.   In Spain  been  obtained���������that is  to say,  of  the germ of pneumonia.    But some  doubt does exist still whether or not  another undiscovered organism may  not be implicated.  ��������� It is not, however, necessary to assume   that   any new organism has  been present to account for the great  virulence of the epidemic.   Bacteriologists have long known  that   epidemics vary greatly in their   severity, and that the passage  from   host  to host   may   augment   the   lethal  power of a germ until such a degree  of deadliness is reached  that death  occurs within a few hours of   infections, and before the ordinary symp  toms of disease-���������which  are largely  of  the ,nature of s. reaction���������have  time   to   develop.    Many of   these  "pneumonia" cases had   no   pneu  monia in the ordinary sense.    That  is to say, there was no consolidation  of the lung.    The infection was  too  severe; it spread beyond the lung to  the blood itself, seeming to paralyze  the normal methods of defence.  .    When we come tolthe_ geographical course:of- the epidemic^-; we:; find  what seems: like confirmation of this  view of augmenting v ruleuce.    The  epidemie   began   in   Spain   during  last summer.  It was then mild, and  ihere were comparativefy few deaths  In that form it spread acrossEurope,  visiting London about June.   It was  treated by the public   rather   as   a  joke.and the victims soon recovered  I'he epidemic then reached Ameria,  and in August and September we began to hear very disquieting accounts  of it. In these months it  had  practically   disappeared  from   London.  October saw the beginning of the return journey, and the   beginning  of  the present plague.  As  might   have  been expected, the ports  were   first  involved, Glasgow and Liverpool  in'  particular  suffering    heavily   for   a  considerable time before   the   other  centers were affected. Next the disease  reached   London, to  which no  doubt if was brought by travellers in  the through trains. From London it  radiated again, visiting Birmingham,  Nottingham-and other centers. It is  still raging at full fury in the smaller  country districts, which   have   now  become involved.  This is made clear   when it is rec-  gnized that on November 1 Glasgow  VETERAN GETS  Mounted Police Officer  Investigating the Police  Requirements of Kootenay Division  Ernest Harrison, a returned soldier formerly clerk in the government office here, returned to the  city on Friday after spending a  couple of months in the convalescent  hospital at Vancouver.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1919  Fundamental Factors  MODERN industrial states are the product  of certain special circumstauces. They  have not just "happened" by chance. They have  : been built up .with an infinite amount of labor  and patience. They have largely developed according to the-character'of the people 'of the  county. .They show marked individuality. The  importance of character in the people has  .been lost sight of in the new world of the  .Americas. Practically speakiug as the Americas developed and attracted immense numbers,  of adventurous souls and those who were discontented with life in the older countries���������  those in fact who desired to better themselves  ���������they assumed the character of the countries  from which most of their people were rlsuwn.  It is only recently that the Americas have developed individual traits of character  Now superimposed on the older generations  which first settled the Americas there have-  been an ever-increasing number of people from  all countries of the world. It has been impos-  siblo to assimilate these people in the life and  habits of this new civization as quickly as they  have come. The sponge of the new civilization  was overcharged and consequently the absorption of people became ever more and more  difficult. Millions of people whose living conditions in Europe were characteristic of their  environment, fllooded to the new country in  quest of what they deemed to be the New  Uutopia. They had heard all men were free  and believed that freedom meant conditions  which suited all their varied needs. They entered the industrial life of the new country  when hitherto in Europe they had been chiefly  agriculturists.  In cousequence there wes ever a largely increasing supply of labor for industrial purposes  rather than for agriculture. If instead of being  attracted by the higher wages to be obtained  in the cities, these people had all decided to  stick to their original calling and become  farmers, industry might not have developed so  fast, but there would have been ecomically a  a better balance between industry and agriculture. What has happened today is that  this balance is weighted too heavily on the industrial side. The word industrial is nsed to  denote manufactures. At once there is a disturbance of the delicate adjustment of production. There is often overproduction in industries and underproduction of farm  products.  Directly we begin to discuss the dresent  situation and keep this primary factor well in  mind, we can see that the remedy can not lie  in mere destruction. It does lie in better production of agricultural products and raw materials. The real wealth of any country consists of its agricultural products, and unless  that wealth is produced in proper proportion  to the industrial development there is dislocation. This is a general principle, and no  amount of theory or grand schemes for world  betterment, no scientific formulas dealing with  "profits,]' "surplus profits" and so forth can  alter this fundamental truth. Thus whenever  there is a discussion as to qhe reason of certain economic disturbances it is as well to begin at the beginning and realize that all  wealth production in based on land and  the things which can be got out of the  land.' "'."  At once it can be perceived how stupid it is  to imagine that all men can be equal and live  under equal conditions.  The point is this: Nature itself is not equal  and men are governed in their entire work by  the forces of nature. They have to meet immense differences in nature and in consequence  have slowly evolved a civilization suited to  their environment. Imagine trying to estab-  lish an equal basis of civilization for the Esquimau and the British Columbian. They can  not be reduced to a common factor because  nature has determined the conditians under  which they live. The attempt which has been  made by certain theorists to reduce life, which  consists of moral, spiritual, economical and  material factors, to a common denomination  is responsible for half the loose thinking which  causes so much unrest.' The basic condition of  life or nature is that there is no equality,either  in climate, physical or geographical conditions,  moral circumstances, or anything. How then  can man, who is part of life, be reduced to a  common denomination?  If man can not be reduced to a common  plane it is obvious that to try and reduce all  his multifarious activities to such a common  plane is doomed to failure. A great deal is being said today about the common ownership  of everything. It is theorically a delightful  conception of the-economic world, but practically it would mean complete stagnation.  No.doubt there are some people who desire to  bring about such stagnation, but seeing that  life itself become diseased and dies from stagnation, is, it not obvious that stagnation of  anything in life simply means eventual death?  Life is choked unless it progresses. Once  more, apply that factor to present-day industrial circumstances and we can perceive certain basic facts on which to build-a new  structure.  rr  =v  will affect the mental and physical development of your child  Many parents, while particularly careful of their children's ,  health and food, neglect-entirely the condition-of their eyes.

SYNOPSIS   OF  LAND ACT AMENDMENT  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed  lands only.  Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  Joint' residence, but each making neces-  saryllmprovements on respective claims.  Prg-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  Intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record  another pre-emption,   if he  re-  ?iuires land in conjunction with his  arm, without actual occupation, provided statutory Improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and Improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces. The time  within which tho heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-emptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  one year from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after the  conclusion of the present war. This  privilege is also made retroactive.  TOWNSITE PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for the grant *o  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, If divisible,  as the payments already niade will  cover in proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persons  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment jointly. If it is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of equal value selected from available  Crown lands in the locality may be  made. These allotments are conditional  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. The  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell are also protected. The decision of  the Minister of Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  Is final. The time for making application for those allotments Is limited to  the 1st clay of May, 1919. Any application made after this date will not be  considered. These allotments apply to  town lots and lands of the Crown sold  at public auction.  For information apply to any Provincial Government Agent or to  G. R.

H ������IZE OF-  most gentleness.   I was a stranger   to |  Baily Shannon, but he was the friend  of man. As I looked Into   his  eyes-  great, honest, intelligent eyes���������I said:  "I know what you did, Bally  Shannon. 'You are a better man than  I am, Gunga I)in.' "  I saw in those eyes the devotion of  unquestioning courage that had upheld,him that dark night in the channel, I saw im them the heritage of his  noble race, the spirit ' of Bran and  Xiuath. of peerless Gellert and the  faithful dog of Aughrim I saw in  them, too, the mystery of the dog's  wonderful gift for attaching himself  to humankind.  There are pprsons who not like  dogs. I wish they might see noble  Bally Shannon and- might have the  courage frankly toapproach him. I  know not why God gave the dog this  spark of divinity that has made  him kin to man. I only know this:  that when we shall have learned from  the dog the beauty of his virtues of  honesty, fidelity and courage, the  world will be a better place for us all.  THICK, GLOSSY HAIR  FREE FROM BxINDRUFF  Bally Shannon  Lovers of dogs the world over have  rejoiced in the reports  of   the   noble  work done by the dogs of war  during  the  great conflict that has just come  l.o a close.  Walter A. Dyer has paid a  touching tribute to these splendid animals, and to dogs iu general, in an article in Country Life that describes the  work and the character of Bally Shannon, Irish wolfhound and battle hero.  I visited Bally Shannon,   says' Mr.  Dyer,   in   the   sheepfold   in   Central  Park, New York, where he was being  kept   for   the    British   officers    who  brought him over.     And   this  is   the  story they tell of him:  Bally Shannon had been^iike them,  a soldier in France. No ordinary ambulance helper was he, bnt aa over*  the-top fighter. He saved ten wounded men by dragging them out of No  Man's Land. Then came a bursting  shell, and Bally Shannon and his  master were both wounded. They  were sent home on a hospital ship,  which in mid channel was torpedoed  by a Germah submarine. The torpedo  did its work well, and the ship went  down with nearly all on board.   Only  three men were saved���������Bally Shannon's master and- two others. They  managed to scramble on top of a bare*  ly floating piece of wreckage.  Then came the dog, swimming  strongly in spite of his wounds, and  begged to be taken aboard. But the  piece of wreckage would have sunk  under his additional weight, and his  master was forced to order him to  keep away. Without so much as a look  of reproach, Bally Shannon obeyed.  All night he swam round the rude  raft, only; resting his chin upon it  when nearly exhausted. In the morning they were pickedup.   ,_.;, .-.r.  Wheu I; visited the dog he was  nearly well, although his master, alas!  had succumbed to his wounds and ex������  posure. I spoke- his name, and he  came to the edge of the inclosure and  raised himself to his full height, rest-  ing his forepaws on the top of the  fence. His head was level with mine.  I thought I had never seen so magnificent an animal. All sinew and  brawn, powerful, built on lines of  speed, he stood there and received my  homage. I plaeed my hand revarently  on his broad, shaggy head and let it  slide down his muzzle He took it for  an.instant in his mouth with   the   ut-  Girls! Try it! Hair gets sofc, fluffy and  beautiful���������Get a small  bottle  of Danderine.  If you care lor heavy hair that glistens with- beauty and is radiant with  life; lias an incomparable softness and  is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.  Just one application doubles the  beauty of your hair, besides it immediately dissolves every particle of  dandruff. You can not have nice heavy,  healthy hair if you have dandruff. This  destructive scurf- robs tlie hair of its  lustre, its strength and its very life,  and if not overcome it produces a fever-  ishncss and itching of the scalp; the  hair roots famish, loosen nnd die; then  the hair "falls out fast.

Let us start this new era right.  There are thousands of soldiers returning from overseas. The Government is doing all in its power to  get these men back to civil life.  It is giving a War Service Gratuity���������-more than  any other nation���������to keep the soldier going till he  gets a job.  It gives him a pension-���������where his usefulness is  impaired by his service.  It teaches a man a new trade when his service  unfits him for his former trade.  It gives him free medical treatment when illness recurs, and supplies free artificial limbs and  surgical appliances.  It is bringing back to Canada at the public  expense the soldiers'dependents now overseas.  But the Government, however willing, cannot provide  the personal touch needed in  this work of repatriation.  That must be given by the  people themselves.  The men who went from  these parts to fight in Flanders deserve a real welcome  home���������the best we can give.  In most towns committees  of citizens have already been  organized to meet the soldiers  and their dependents at the  station, to provide hot meals,  supply automobiles, afford  temporary accommodation  when necessary.  In addition, many other  towns are organizing social  gatherings to give public welcome to returned men after  they have been home a  few    d ays.  After he has rested, the  soldier must be provided with  an opportunity for employment. In towns of 10,000  population, Public Employment Offices have been established to help soldiers, as well  as war-workers; secure good  jobs quickly. Where these  exist, citizens should co-operate. Where they do not exist,  the citizens themselves should  help put the soldier in touch  with employment.  ���������3f  ���������*  ���������x-  The fighting job is done." It  has cost many a heart-burning. But it has been well  done. The least we can do  is to show our appreciation  in no uncertain manner.  Don't let the welcome die  away with the cheers.
