The weather bureau and the chemioal warfare service of the United State.*', whicli have
been trying various methods of protecting
orchards on frosty nights, have discovered
that smoke clouds, such as the army uses to
conceal the movement of troops, do not ward
off frost. Cold seems to penetrate dense smoke
readily, The experiments confirm the con
elusions of earlier iuvestigators that the most
eflicient and economical method of protecting
crops from frosts is to heat the lower layers
of air by burning some kind ot cheap fuel.

Near sighted children, in the opinion of
the council of British opthalmologists, should
be awarded no scholarships intended to fit
the incumbents for teaching. The opinion
has naturally caused considerable dissent,
especially among parents, but it is probably
based on sound sense and looks to the ultimate good of the greatest number.
The number of funnels on an ocean liner has
been a popular gauge ofthe grandeur of the

speed of 18 knots. Four sets of six-cylinder
Diesel engines deliver 13,000 horsepower,

The disappearance of laughter In ni the world
will be caused by the spread of learning, Dr.
Shaw said. He argued that, in a distant day,
men will know too much to laugh, just as
primitive men knew too little to smile. M. n
no longer laugh at things they used to laugh
at, Dr. Shaw pointed out. Among the things
which laughter now passes by, he said, aro old
maids, bobbed hair, matrimony and the

A London paper draws attention to two odd
things that have recently happened at sea
which must make an appeal even to a dull
imagination. One was a collison between an
airplane and a steamer; the other was a curious case of damage to an airplane rising over
the Dorset coast. The damage was first seen
from land and was notified to the pilot in the
sky by a wireless message. The°pilot was instructed to make for the sea and land in shal
low water, which he did, being picked up by a
rowing boat.

"Seed Scatterers" is the name of a society

narrow coastal strip that runs six hundred
miles south from the longitudinal boundary

The scheme for the settlement of
British emigrants in Canada may
assume a new aspect as a result of
the presence in London, England, of
the Hon. J. A. Robb, Canadian Minister of Immigration. Canada favors the movement of entire families to Canada from Great Britain,
nather than that of single men.
Among Hie biggest muscalunges
caught this year was one landed at
the Canadian Pacific Railway's
BVeneh Kiver (Ont.) Bungalow
Camp, by Samuel Franklin, Southern Sales Manager of Claflins, Inc.,
New York City. Mr. Franklin had
a light tackle and had never hooked
a lunge before. He had a hard
fight to secure the fish, which
tipped the scale at 38% pounds.
A total of 18,743 Canadians,
most of them native-born, has been
repatriated from- the United States
during the months of April, May
and June, according to figures
announced by the Department of
Immigration. During these three
months 58,425 persons immigrated
to Canada, which represented an increase of 12,292 over the same pa-
Hod of last year.
Another Canadian Railroad Record
I UnloMlna new rail from a flat car.   i ix -Juna-lJasi Pacific Mi.ikir.iln.   3 Placing anew rail unit.   4 Throwing the old rail to the
outalde oi the track. Note how the wheel* ace edging the old metal over the new.
Although Canada owes its prosperity, and even its
national life to the Railroads which stretch across
the Dominion and send feeders north and south into its
rich agricultural and mining countries, the Railroad
history of the country does not yet cover fifty years.
In their short existence, however, Canadian Railways
have progressed, and been so forced to meet the increasing
demands and requirements of the country that their
development has been extraordinarily rapid. Not only
were the engineers employed by the Canadian Pacilic
compelled to press the laying of steel to the Pacific at a
pace hitherto unknown, regardless of the many difficulties
and obstacles which they encountered both on the
plains and in the Rockies which were once thought impassable, but competition with other lines and the
demand of the travelling public for service, comfort and
convenience has stimulated the activities of the operating departments to such an extent that in the matter
of equipment and service railroads in this Dominion are
not surpassed on the continent.
Experiences gained in "construction dayj" were not
lost, nor has the standard of efficiency which signalized
the Canadian engineer been lowered, and today Canadians claim to be the world's leaders in railway construction maintenance and operation.
Using unusual and effective methods, the Canadian
Faafic recently laid over 100 miles of 100 pound rail at
wa rate of a mile or more an hour securing total daily
mileages up to 10 miles and over and thus t*stab!i«hiii-?
*nother record.  This while the road was under heavy
traffic. First came the train *»/ith the now rail. By means
of special handling appliances the rails were distributed
along the track, outside tbe old steel. Following the
distribution of the new steel, the rails were picked up by
a special gang, set up end to end, and bolted into two
rail units. Next, the inside spikes were pulled by a gang
detailed off.for this work, and the old rails were pushed
in towards the centre of the track. The new rail was
then lifted into place and spiked down against the
shoulder of the old tie plates before being bolted into one
continuous stretch. This ensured that the alignment and
surface of the track remained undisturbed. The new tie
plates were inserted later.
Perhaps the most interesting operation was the
moving of the old rail to the outside of the track where it
could be picked up by the salvage train. The discarded
steel was not unbolted, being one continuous piece, sometimes half a mile in length. The end of this rail was
thrown outside the new track and as a heavily weighted
truck was pushed slowly by a powerful engine, bo the
phlanges on its foremost wheels shoved the old rail over
the new to the outside of the track — a simple operation,
but one which, in course of a few years saves the Company thousands of dollars. As a matter of fact, this system of re-laying track, practised first by the Canadian
Pacific on the Megantic Subdivision, has attracted the
attention of railroad officials all over the continent,
many of whom have sent representatives from as far
away as Texas to secure first hand knowledge of it and
the spec-al unloading equipment used.

It is anticipated that English or-
dor- for Canadian wool will exceed
1,01)0,000 pounds this j-far, which
will be a considerable Increase over
the business of 1928, amounting to
700,000 pounds.
Definite advice has been received
at Victoria, B.C., that the Japanese
training squadron, consisting of
the "Kishima," "Asma" and
"Azuma" will visit Victoria during
the winter. The squadron will.
leave Japan early in December, following the annual fall manoeuvres.
Approximately 60 per cent, or
1,252,604 of the population of
Western Canada live on occupied
farms. Of the balance, 474,516 live
in its 20 cities and towns of over
2,500 and 228,962 in 3,309 small
tu\v:.j and villages of 2,600 or
under.
The work of re-ballasting the
main line of the Canadian Pacifit
between Montreal and Toronto (the
Lake Ontario shore line) has Just
bcen completed. Nearly 2,000,00*
tons of crushed rock, or about 36,-
000 carloads, were used in this operation. Officials state that the roadbed is now as excellent as it can ha
made and second to none in the
world.
Successful strawberry culture 300
miles north of the international
boundary has been proven possible
by R. A. Gordon, of Edmonton,
Alta. One hundred plants brought
from Ontario wintered well, blossomed heavily and produced a prolific crop of well-formed, fine-flavored fruit with rich color and flavor. Mr. Gordon has likewise had
much success with cherries, wild
plums and crab apples.
Steady progress has been mads
by the macaroni industry in Canada during the past decade. The
Bureau of Statistics reports that,
whereas the Dominion imported
nearly 7,000,000 pounds in pre-war
days, it imported only 1,096,000
pounds and exported 2,229,006
pounds in 1923. Nine factories,
with a capitalization ol $878,000,
Bow operate in Canada, with an
aggregate output approximating
11,500,000 pounds.
Whaling operations off the coast
of British Columbia this season
have been very successful. Four
stations and six or seven whalers
are working. Some of the vessels
have secured 30 head so far this
year. Whale oil is selling well fn
England, while whale meat, canned,
is an established commodity in West
Africa, the entire British Columbia
whale meat pack of last year having been sold there.

Louise, the Canadian 'Pacific's
charming hotel in the heart of the
Canadian Rockies, are already under way. The contract has been
awarded to Carter-Halls Aldinger,
of Winnipeg, and Barrot and Black-
ader are the architects. The building will have a greater number ef
guest and public rooms than existed
in the one which preceded it, as the
hotel is now too small for the
erowds which visit it. The work Ib
to be completed in time for next

Marquis wheat, originated at ths
Dominion Experimental Farms and
now world famous, has successfully invaded South America, being
grown in the Argentine Republic
last year with results that, according to authorities there, exceeded
the expectations of the most optimistic advocates of the grain. Further shipments of seed are being
made to the Argentine by the Canadian  Seed Growers'  Association.
