The institutian of a strict medical  anti'ejducational teBt for immigrants  at th^point of embarkation and the  exclusion of Orientals from holding  or leasing land in the   Dominion  is  advocated.  Col.. Edgett's supporters believe room'  that as a preventive of foreign fruits  being dumped on Canadian markets  at less than the cost of production  the retention of sufficient duty on  fruit is essential and they also recommend a tariff board Bimilartothe  railway board with farmers' representatives on it.  With   the' view   to  prevent any  possible reduction in revenue which  may arise from the revision of   the  tariff,   states    an    addenda,    '.'We  recommend that the tariff commission consider the possibility of   rais  ing    revenue   from   the   protected  manufacturing industries by impos  ing upon such industries a pro ra'a  tax on the  net   profits equal to the  amount of protection afforded."

JBUGty  discussion.    c  The Yale by-election, which is slated for  November 22, promises to become the most  hotly contested political fight ever waged in  the constituency. Already there are three  Candidates in the field���������National Liberal-'  Conservative, Veteran-United Farmers, and  Labor. If the Liberals decide to run a straight  candidate, the mix-up will become still more  interesting. As the situation is today, however, the National Liberal-Conservative and  the Veteran-Farmers candidatesWll run  about neck-andeneck.  Another reform movement has been launched in Vancouver.   If the promoters ultimately  achieve their aim, then all that will be required  to  make liberty  and  democracy    absolutely  triumphant will be a statute to  penalize the  old maid gum-chewers. "There have been occasional rumors and alarms in  the past," says  the Province, "but now a.definite program has  . Been outlined, forces are being marshalled and  a campaign is to be waged on   'jimmy  pipes,'  tobacco jars, various members of el cabbago  family, and the weaker cousin���������the cigarette.  All of which was decided upon  at a meeting  'for women only' held in St. Andrew's Presbyterian church on Wednesday afternoon.   Dr.  Jessie B. Conwa.y presided. The-meeting was  largely  attended, no  children   being allowed,  nor was mere man  admitted to  the church.  Dr.   Conway addressed   the gathering, which  first discussed matters which are  not  usually  dealt with in open meeting, but following this  the advertised subject of the gathering,  the  iniquities of the pipe, the cigar and  cigarette  were proclaimed. 'A vote was taken,' declared  one woman who was present, 'and.it was  decided to wage a campaign againts the  use  of  tobacco. It was stated that women were usintr  cigarettes almost as freely as men were at,the  present time.   I voted for the campaign, because I think  tobacco should be kept away  from our young boys.   It is not  so   bad,  perhaps, for the ones who have been .'.smokers for  years, but if they will  not stop smoking they  should be compelled to do so as an   example  to the young. It is the intention of  preparing  a bill���������something like  the  prohibition  bill���������  which  will   be  submitted to the government  after a time. The government  will   be  asked  in the meantime to discourage smokim* ' "  After a while It will be  a crime   to smoke  the pipe of peace.  A monograph in the London Financial  Times on the history of the old Citizens' bank  of Louisiana, at New Orleans, reveals the  origin of the name "Dixie land," the term applied now to all the southern states and preserved in the famous southern war soncr.  "Dixie." Prior to the civil War the Citizens'  bank, having the power to issue paper notes,  issued several millions in denominations of  $10 and $20, but mostly $10. The $10 bills  were engraved in French with the French  word "dix" featured on their backs. The bills  became known as "dixies," and, this money  becoming popular, Looisiana was referred to  as the "land of the Dixies," or "Dixie land.'  Eventually the term was so broadened as to  apply to all southern states. This seem a very  acceptable  explanation  of the  origin of the  When the steam plow was first used, when  the  electric tramways commenced   to   rnn,  when the bicycle, the automobile, the tractor  and the truck were put into service,many saw.  a horseless age not far distant. . Cartoonists  depicted a nag as a curiosity to be found only  in museums within a very few years; men   of  good intentions wrote articles in  the  papers  and  the feeling became widely spread that it  was only a question of time for the horse completely to disappear. And still the official records show that despite the large exportations  during the great war, there were*  more horses  in Canada in the United States in  1918  than  rhere ever were in any year siuce- the discovery of the New World.    That this should  be  so is,  at first sight, remarkable, if one takes  into consideration the fact that the horse has  had practically no advertising agent   to  extol  his merits, while the very best talent has been  employed to   push   the  automotive  industry:  Small fortunes have been spent to show  how  horses could    be., replaced  by automobiles,  trucks and  tractors, while  nothing has been  done to prove that  different  kinds  of work  performed by horses could never be attempted  by mechanical power.    But  the  gradual  increase in  the  number of horses is not so extraordinary after all, and, in fact, is only what  might have been expected  when   one   thinks  about the very congested city districts   where  trucks will never be profitable on  short hauls,  the long winter months, in most northern sections, during which automobiles and tractors  -will necessarily be idle, and the hilly  or  even  very  rolling farms where too much power is  lost in propelling the machine-itself.   It must  be admitted that some of the ordinary work of  horses  can  be  done as well and sometimes  more, cheaply with machines.   But this is also  true of the labor of men, yet, though   during  the last three   or four decades  machines  of  every  description   have  been  invented   and  placed in factories still manual labor is scarcer  than  ever.   Besides these considerations, the  ordinary farmer is not a  mechanic any  more  than the average mechanic  is  a farmer.    As  long as his tractor is new, he gets along very  well, but afterwards  he  commences  to have  trouble, and if the dealer or the service station  is  far  away   or busy, be may be stuck in the  heaviest seasons of seeding, haying or harvesting. On the other hand, the care of horsevs has  been known from  generation  to  generat on,  and  even  if one animal is laid up, the whole  work does not stop. That the automotive  industry is rendering a service to the country at  the same  time as it is piling up dividends is  admitted; that it will in time crowd the  horse  away  from   farms is not believed by anybody  who has given the question serious consideration.

The new list recently issued contains  thirty new publications which relate to dairying, field crops, insect und plant diseases, live  stock, the orchard and garden, and poultry.  In the miscellaneous list is included "Farm  Feeds," 'The Use of Coarse Grain for Human  Food,'"' and a new edition of the "Maple Sugar  Industry in Canada." All these publications  are for the free use of the citizens of Canada,  and are obtainable from the publications  branch of the department of agriculture at  Ottowa.-  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

However, He Has No Hostile Feelings Towards  England, Which He Admires  The London Morning Pi-si's correspondent recently spent, several  days at Senator Harding's home in  Marion, Ohio, and he secured an  o.k.'d interview with the Republican presidential, candidate regarding  his policy if he is eiection president  in November next.  The correspondent says that  Harding's policy will be a policy of  America first, protection of American interests, fostering and development of American commerce and an  American merchant marine and  recognition that the first duty of au  American presideut and his government is to America...  Mr. Harding thinks that, with  this policy in view, there is bound  to be a sharp commercial rivalry between the United States and Britain,  and that it is inevitable that in some  direction their material interests  will clash. That rivalry, however,  will be, in bis own words, honorable  and fair; it will be a contest iu which  there will be no foul playing and  w���������ill not disturb the long continued  friendship that has existed between  the two nations.  Mr. Harding has no hostile feelings towards England. On the con  trary, he does not hesitate3frankly to  voice his admiration for the clever  ���������jess with which Eng'land has. al  ways managed her affairs���������managed  them with such ability that her  power and prestige and importance  have constantly increased. He says  this without envy or rancor, but he  also says that England has set an ex  ample that America should follow,  and the same single purpose that has  always been the British policy of  promoiing national interests Bhould  now *be pursued by the United  States,.  In the opinion of Mr. Harding,  it would have been a gross folly for  America to* have assumed a man  date over a country in which the  United States has no political interest.  The correspondent, in one of   his  interviews     with     Mr.     Harding,  brought up specifically  the  subject  of Anglo-American rivalry  between |  the two countries as a sequel to  tbe  war which may produce someirrita*  tion. Harding anticipates some, but  he does not fear it will threaten  the  harmony of intercourse. He believes  that the United States ought to carry  the great bulk of   her Atlantic cooo-  merce   in   her own  bottoms and u  firmly convinced that   that this  is  ,or the benefit of America.

BUSINESS zJWAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? you in  good company?   It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the  company he keeps.  ( When you join the ranks  of  the advertisers you join the  ranks   of the   biggest   and  niost successful   merchants  and  manufacturers   in   the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name of a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same, rule is true of  smaller citiej' and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  vl*#  m  *���������, News of the City  The secretary of the local Liberal  association has received a letter  from Hon.
