literature has been more quoted
than Bliss Carman's "Low Tide on
Grand Pre," a poem which breathes
the spirit of nature as felt on tha
lovely shores of Nova Scotia. Tha
modern Canadian poets are following in the footsteps of these writers,
lpit going further afield, as tha
facilities for travel throughout tha
great Dominion are extended. Thus.
Iot instance, In a neat volume of
poems by a young Irish-Canadian
poet, M. A. Hargadon, the scene

Scotia, Quebec, and the Canadian
Rockies Here Is a charming versa
from a poem about Lake Louise:
"This lake  ts  God's best  picture;
that la why
Be hung It on the mountains st
the sky
And set it in so beautiful a frame;
Art galleries of heaven have none
"*■   the same."
This ts the closing verse of a poem
inspired by  the majestic beauty of
There Is no lovelier place to Hve
And when at last I die,
I think my soul will go to Banff
Instead of to the sky;
For here there la no sorrowing,
No suffering nor care,
And. up so near to paradise,
It seems enfolded there."
The French-Canadians are described
"Branch of a splendid moa transplanted here

At a demonstration of his lightning generaior a few days ago, the
familiar forked tongues flashed
through tbe laboratory witb a deafening crash, splintered a large block
of wood, hurliug the fragments
twenty five feet and ripping a miniature tree from tip to base. The bolt
carried the energy of 1,000,000
horsepower, about l*500th of tbe
energy of natural lightning bolts,
Dr. Steinmetz estimates, and lasted
for tbe one hundred thousandth
part of a second. •   .
Tha inspiration to produce art i
ficial lightning came to Dr. Steinmetz two years ago when he arrived
at bis summer camp at tbe Mobaw^c
river to find the heavenly visitor
had preceeded bim by a few hours
and left the camp in sad disarray.
The lightning had struck a treo

tearing some of its bark it bail
jumped to tbe camp, where it divided. One branch passed to tbe
ground through a post, while the
other lore its way through a window,
jumped tbe lighting circuit and
made a tour of the house, splintering a screen, a looking glass aod a

Dr. Steinmetz got busy with a jam-

.Speaking of municipal ownership—as most
of us frequently do those days—ii is worth
observing that municipal operation is almost
always expensive The figures collected by the
United States census in 1912 showed that it
cost 1562 municipalities that owned their own
electric light plants an average of 3.15 cents
a kibwatt hour to produce their current. In
3659 privately owned plants the cost was 1.98
cents per kilowatt hour, although they had to
pay taxes, from which the mnnicipal plants
were free.
and promise much. They even devise remark
able cures for ills that do not exist. The real
cure, however, is so old fashioned and so readily within our reach that some of us fail to
recognize it. It is work. The people who are
recovering most rapidly from the the effects of
the war are those who are who working instead of talking, who are practicing economy
instead of indulging in extravagance, and in
putting their own houses in order they are
solving the problems confronting their country.
The present religious revival in Scotland,
which began among thc fishing population, is
reported to be the most extradrdinary out-
biust of religious feeling since the great
Welsh revivals of 1904. The leader i.s a cooper
of great eloquence and emotional power. It
was the sobbing utterance of a villiage girl at
a prayer meeting—"If no one else will, then I
must say that I love the love the Lord with
all my heart"—that started the Welsh revivals.
Citizens and governments have been wildly
grasping at every suggested cure for their
troubles, but the world has gradually learned
after some painful experiments with these
panaceas that the only remedy for its disease
was time and work. The great need for the
piesent emergency is clear thinking; basing
our actions on facts, not fancies; putting our
faith in work instead of in words; relying on
accomplishments, not promises; and not mistaking license for liberty. The world is surfeited with cure alls offered by irresponsi bles

I like a social functions, with all the latest
frills, where goodly eats are on the bill-of-fare;
where lack of mild compunction provides alluring thrills and females dress transparent as
they dare.
I like the senseless chatter when not a word

a frost; where all that seems to" matter is our
sincere intent to stand the pace, no matter
what the cost.
The ladies look so stunning 'n low-neck,
sleeveless arms, and skirts that .almost hide
their dimpled knees; where colors blend so

At Grand Pre, Novn Scotia, the
other day, three hundred menbers
of the Acadian National Congress
assembled, and kneeling reverently
at thc statue of Evangeline, the
heroine of LonRfellow's immortal
poem, accepted on behalf of the
Ae.idian race a k'iH of two acres of
the Evangeline Memorial Park from
the Dominion Atlantic Railway.
There are in all about fourteen
acres in Evangeline Park, and the
two acres were presented to the
Acadian race on the condition that
thev would build a church there.
George E. Graham* general manager of the Dominion Atlantic Railway, expressed his pleasure at welcoming the delegates. With regard
to the proposed church, the D. A. R.
■would still further beautify the
grounds and would give it perfect
setting. The company would open
the old post road that had been
closed for fifty or sixty years. He
asked them to cast their minds forward the next five years when this
chapel would be erected, a beautiful
sanctuary in the midst of a beautiful country. ,
Mr. P. J. Vcnoit, "minister of
highway* for New Brunswick, subscribed $100. for the erection of the
r.cw ehureh and George E. Graham
$100 and the Rev. Father Cormier
i-.ddressed the people, saying that
the church would be erected on the
site of the old church.of St. Charles.
It would be a facsimile of the church
if their ancestors.

of state and individual in an ideal
world. I am not a philosopher, but
a business man, and my interest is
in the immediate present,
i     Man'a Struggle With Nature
"The world as we know It Is at con
•tant war, not su much a war between nation and nation as a war
of man against nature. Tha world
is getting to be more populous, and
its peoplea muat be clothed and fed.
Incidentally, tha nations into which
mankind has grouped itself may war
upon each other in the desire to control for their own needs new or old
sources of merchandise and of production, but the dynamic spirit underlying human activities is the desire to preserve ths human race.
Thc Pioneer Spirit
"In thia New World of North
America, the struggle of man
againat nature is more obvious, perhaps, than in an Old World, where
income sufficient for food, clothing
and considerable comfort is considered1 by so many as their undisputed
heritage. We, over here, live among
pioneers and the sons of pioneers,
who have homesteaded, cleared their
own farms, prospected for and dis
covered mines, started business in a
wilderness-and seen the wilderness
become a city. We realise, perhaps
mora readily than the philosophers
of the more complex Old World how
much we owe to individual energy
in thia war against nature. The continent of North America has been
civilized and adapted to the need,
of man by the enterprise of sturdy
individuals and not by state officials.
The Personal Element in Business
"With the struggle for existence
disguised under the polite forms of
settled and organized communities',
it is still to man of vision and imagination that we owe our progress.
The history of Canada and* the
United States is full of instances of
men who have risen to commanding
positions in the world of affairs by
.the force of personal merit. Mount
Stephen, Carnegie and Edison are
typical of the spirit of leadership
which- has made the civilization of
our continent what it is. In all
fields of business life we owe much
to the indomitable energy of leaders, who, with a fair field and unhampered by tradition, have won
their 'way to the front. In new
countries the individual seams to
have opportunities denied him in
older nations.
"In the largest company or in the
most complex corporation the driving    power    of    the individual    is
the keynote of progress.
Dangers  of  Individualism
"There is, however, a danger to
the human race in unrestricted Individualism. "Every man for himself" is not only a selfish policy; it
may imperil the harmony, indeed,
the safety, of the community. Man
aa a social animal has a duty, not
only to himself, but also to hia
neighbors. The' business man or
business company in a complex community or state has a similar duty
to the public. The work of that man
or company "ft ultimately for the
preservation and benefit of his community, and while that work is moat
energetically prosecuted, if done in
the spirit of the individual, it fails
of its purpose if it is prosecuted
to the detriment of the community
or race as a whole.
State Socialism as a Remedy far
the Ilia of Business
How many an illness is due to selfish excess! How often the decay of a
once powerful company Is due to
its abuse of privilege and disregard
of the interests and opinion of the
community it ought to serve! The
company or business enterprise that
Uvea for itself and is not conducted
ultimately with an eye to its usefulness to the community is an unhealthy business and a source of instability. It incorporates a wrong
ideal of conduct, and, sooner or later,
is bound tb come in conflict with
public opinion, to its own ultimate
ruin. That business which desires
a good old age must be conducted In
a spirit of service—service to the
community, and service to the public. It will be conducted all the
better if it is virile and progressive,
full of initiative and new ideas, free
from red tape, official rules, cast-
iron precedents and regulations, but
it ought always to be conducted in
the spirit of good citizenship.
The tendency toward state owner
ship and control, which is now happily passing away, was the aftermath of a too reckless and selfish
individualism, both in the Old World
and the New, during the first stages
of industrial growth. The so-called
• Hnchester School policy of "laissez
faire" or "devil Uke the hin'most"
was carried to excess and resulted
in hardship to large masses of the
people, and so in an unhealthy situation in the body politic.
Can a Government Undertaking
Ba a Business Success?
The teat ef a private enterprise
is the making of profits under
competitive conditions. That test
cannot be applied to government
operations. A government rarely
feels that it ls under the obligation
to make a profit from the conduct
of any of its enterprises,
A private enterprise, even when
operating a public utility like a railroad, haa the stimulus of profit to
spur it to a fruitful activity, but if
profits fail and losses occur through
misfortune or mismanagement it
must bear its own burdens. It Is
generally behaved by buainesa men
that no undertaking run by government ean stand Mm Mil teat of pro
fit making and proper conservation
of tha plant Reports of profits
from operations generally overlook
depreciation, reserves, Interest on
capital and an allowance for the
equivalent of the taxes paid by private undertakings. From a strict
accounting view, most, if not all
government business undertakings
operate at a loss and would be wiped
out were it not for the direct and
indirect support of the public treasury. There may be circumstances
in which such operation at a loss is
justified by public interests, but it
is hard for a business man to conceive of sueh a system being generalized without being reminded
that the inhabitants of a certain island made a living by taking in one
another's washing.
Government Interference ShouM
Be Limited
The business nap muat always
bear in mind that it is himself and
his fellow taxpayers who bear tlie
burden of experimentation in the
field of government industry. If the
assumption of government control
were to take place progressively, as
some enthusiasts desire, the rime
might come when, with only a pait
of tha nation's industries nationalised, staggering burdens of taxation
would crush ths profit out of all ths
War's Bffeet on Basineas Stractare
For a time the necessities of
ernments during the Great War
seemed to upset all precedents. Tha
governments of tha belligerent powers believed it to be necessary to
take a largo part in directing tke
economic activity of ths people in
the production and distribution of
goods aad in many cases to assume
complete control of it. Thess whs
in earlier years had argued for extension of government intervention
in business affairs found ia these
events a vindication of their position. Those who had steadfastly insisted upon the inefficiency ot government agencies in practical business affairs harbored the fear that
so many' steps had been taken toward government intervention that
it might not be possible to retrace
Neither hope nor fear was justified by the outcome. Both aides forgot that theae were emergency
measures likely to be abandoned
whan the needs from which they
were born ceased to exist. They
overlooked the faot that this government action, though intended to enhance economic efficiency, gave that
idea a very limited scope and concentrated on the single purpose of
winning the war, brushing aside all
other considerations. They failed to
perceive that when peace cams ths
public would no longer be impressed
by the mere fact that the government had done certain things, bat
would begin to inquire how wall it
had accomplished them.
War Measures Tested by Business
The fact is that these war measures never were judged by ordinary
business standards and ought not to
have been so measured. Into these
standards the element of eost always enters as a vital factor. In
the throes of war wa did not always have time to count the costs.
The thing of importance was ths
result attained. Whatever success
these measures might have had was
due to the spirit In which they were
received by the people, who silenced
every other demand than national
needs and accepted any inconvenl
ence to trade or industry aa a patriotic duty.
Ab soon as peace came, murmurs
of criticism began to be heard. Customary standards of criticism began I
to be applied and government administration no longer appeared in
a rosy' ligbt. The net result w_u
that the state as an economic agent
was tried and found wanting. We
bad ***** a practical demonstration
of government operation on a Isra
scale and the conviction of its wc-ik-
nsss became widespread. There has
been a complete reaction in p.'blic
opinion as to the merits of govern:
ment action in business affairs.
Service the Keynote of Sound
The moral of all these considerations, is that SERVICE should be
tbs cardinal policy of good business.
If we keep in mind that we are,
above all, servants of the public, we
cannot go far wrong. Our object is
to supply the needs and contribute
to the well-being of the people, our
clients. We may be as enterprising,
as full of Initiative, as inventive in
ideas and methods as possible, and
this initiative is best fostered if we
can count on a reasonable rew.ird,
but if we keep SERVICE as our
watchword, our individuality will
always be guided in the right direction. Such a «spirit will conduce
more than anything else to success,
but the success will not be achieved
at the cost of the public welfare, and
it will obviate all likelihood of tbe
public wasting time, energy and
money in attempting to run your
business for you.
If I may be permitted to give an
instance from the history of the
company which I have the honor to
serve, I should like to illustrate my
argument from the case of the Canadian Pacific Railway. That railway holds the unique record of being the only large private railway
enterprise in tke world that escaped
the fate of being taken over by its
government even temporarily as a
result of the Great War. My firm
belief is that its immunity was due
to the impregnable position it held
in thi confidence of the people of
Canada through its record of service evwr sines its construction as a
transcontinental railway. One of
the startling aad at the time much
criticized posters with which Van
Home placarded tha country in the
early days read:
"Parisian Politeness sn the
C. P. R."
This waa merely a vivid expression
of tiie cardinal policy of the men
who established the company that
courtesy and consideration fo; the
people of Canada were to be the
watchwords of this private enterprise. Thess msn were all .imbued
with an intense patriotism and belief in Canada, and considered that
in buildifM. up tbeir railway they
ig up their country.
SERVICE waa the very breath of
their nostrils. The result was that
tstsj established not enly a successful railway, able to weather severe
financial storms, but they also
established a popular railway in
which tho people of Canada had
confidence. Its profits have never
bean excessive, and its prosperity is
gsoacsHy taken as reflecting the
prosperity of the Canadian
as a whole.
Productive Activity Best Stimulated
fly Individual Initiative.
Om of ths principal lessons of
ths Great War waa the importance
of production. Ws had listened so
tag to ths ooiaplahit of would be

pres snt social order was inequality
iff-the distribution of property and

upon our resources we found them
te bs largely imaginary.    This experience wfl not soon be forgotten
and lhe aosp-el at hard work must
be pnt into practice if human progress is to continue.
Production and yet more production is the necessity of our age.
For increased production the world
haa not yst found any better incentive than the hope of individual
profit. As an actual producer the
state machine ia notoriously inefficient. Where production is accelerated by those who at the same time
ara inspired by ideals of service,
you have the healthiest condition
under which business may be pursued, and the nearest spi * * - -an
