Winnipeg.— The principal officers
of the Cana;' .: -, Pacific Railway at

fc» which he has been promoted as
general foreign freii ht agent in
charge of ocean son ice.
When the Troop was formed at the
end of November, 1921. there were
about flfty boys on the register. The
attendances were then about thirty-
five to forty every week and kept up
fairly regularly until the summer
months. During the hot wenther the
numbers dwindled—even at bathing
parades—so much that it became
necessary to discontinue the meetings
for two months.
The Troop has now about twenty*
five members on the roll, but the attendances are proportionally much
better, nearly touching 90 per cent
Some twenty-four boys passed their
Tenderfoot tests within the first two
months and there are now seven boys
who have reached the standard of
2nd Class Scouts.
The Troop is very muoh indebted
to Dr. Truax, who has taken a considerable amount of time and trouble
over teaching the troop first aid, bandaging, etc. Tho troop has also had
assistance from Dr. Kingston, Mayor
Hull, J. P, Griffith, J. Berry, Mr,
Mudge and others,
Tbe routine work has been carried
on regularly by Scoutmaster P. S.
Thompson' and Assistant Scoutmaster C  S. Clarke.
The building which has been known
as Scout Headquarter, was kindly
lent to the troop by Mr. Mcintosh
without charge, and the city has let
them have the light on similar  terms.
During the spring and summer
months a number of all-day or half-
day hikes were undertaken. These
were not as well attended as might
havo been expected, but those who
were present got through a creditable
amount of useful work.
A summer camp was held at Christina lake in conjunction with troops
from Rossland and Midway, This
camp was only attended by six Grand

The Hope Section of
Transprovincial Road
Victoria, Dec. 26.—The provincial government plans to commence
the construction of the transprovin
eial highway from Hope east early
next year, it was announced in the
legislature on Wednesday by Hon.
W. D. Sutherland, minister of pab
lie works, wben the estimates were
brought up in tbe bouse for the
public works department. It was
explained by Hon. Dr, Sutherland
thai survey gangs under Engineer
W. K. Gwyer have been at work on
the western end of the Hope-Princ >h
ton route.
Hon. Mr. Sutherland recently
made a personal survey of the
routes, accompanied by Engineer
Gwyer. They travelled over the
Cleveland survey for twenty-five to
thirty miles on through the Allison
pass at an altitnde of 4400 feet, then
striking the Dewdney trail and foi
lowing it into Hope.
As to the probable route of the
highway, it is assumed from Dr.
Sutherland's statement tbat for
twenty five or thirty miles it will
follow tbe Dowdney trail, take the
Allison pass and tben strike the
Cleveland survey twenty-flve miles
west of Princeton. This would involve the utilization of part of Ihe
King route and one-third of each of
the other routes aod tbe lower altitude of Allison pass.
It was pointed out by W. A. Mc
Kenzie, member for Similkameen,
tbat for the first twenty fiveto thirty
miles east of Hope is a good grade

ties, that a little girl of 11 years of

Railway grade crossings continue to take
their toll. Td the man who has not learn ed
that he must allow a margin of time for reasonable delays the approaching train seems
to be always a challenge for a race to the

delays of various kinds are inevitable, that
they must reckon the factor of safcty,and that
the approach of a railway crossing is noplace
for full speed ahead.
A French writer insists that man could live

The kelp of the Pacific coast, which often

A statistical philologist has, counted the

the Italian 75,000, the French 30,000, the
Turkish 22,500 and the Spanish 20,000. That

Some months ago, when the ancient walls
of Canton, China, were razed to make room
for a street railway, contractors offered to do
the work for whatever treasure the walls

several applicants, every one of whom discovered such quantities of ancient coin and ornaments hidden away in the walls that the work,
though done without other payment, was
profitable to him.
How much a farmer depends on rain can be
judged from the fact that under general farming conditions twenty inches of water are
necessary to raise a crop. Translate inches
into tons and we have the rather startling figure of 2270 tons of water necessary to grow
in acre of crops. A soaking rain that without
cos! will spread some two hundred tons of
water over every drought ridden acre is a boon
beyond reckoning.
Man learns slowly; sometimes it seems that
he does not learn at all. Six centuries ago the
famous traveler, Marco Polo, among other
proofs of the wisdom and the experience of
the Chi: ese, brought back to Europe this
ipiotat'ou from an ancient Chinese sage: ''In
olden times the emperors of China began to
issue paper money. One of the great ministers
got a great revenue by this scheme. But it
soon came about that for ten thousand bills
you could scarcely buy a bowl of rice. The
people were in misery, and the government
was ruined." How many rulers of the nations
—not to speak of the ioss instructed peoples
themselves—have not yet loarned the lesson
that this old Chinaman knew hundreds and
hundreds of years ago.

The American department af agriculture,
which has been experimenting with grass for
golf greens, has obtained best results from
pure strains of creeping bent, a grass of uniform color and even texture and one hat

vegetative method than from seed. The
stolons, or runners, are cut up and spread on

Among the reforms that Premier Mussolini

Everybody's Telephone Service
Sometimes when you make a telephone
call, you do not get the numbers promptly. When you tell the operator, she says,
"I will ring them again."
Finally when you get the party wanted,
do you feel that the operator has not
given you prompt service, or do you realize that the person you called may not
have answered the telephone at once?
It will help to provide prompt  service*
for all if every subscriber will answer the
telephone as soon as the bell rings.

rtenfrcw, sVitarib— Mr. Ed. Williams, Canadian Pacific Railway
baggage master, who in addition to
his regular duties, takes care of the
flower garden which attracts so
much favorable comment from travellers over the line, has secured another triumph. Mr. Williams has
just been notified that his plot has
been awarded second prize in the
Quebec district, all of the depot gardens having been recently judged by
an official of the road. During the
past few years Mr. Williams has
carried off a number of first prizes
but the competition is growing keener year by year.
St. Thomas, Ontario—Work hai
been commenced on the construction
of an extension to the present C.P.R.
yards east of the cily, in the form
•f an 800-foot repair track at an expenditure of approximately $15,000.
The grading work which is being
done by Irwin and Son of this city,
was started recently. The extension
ia necessary to cope with the increased business and also to facilitate the repairing of cars. It is
also understood that the addition of
the new tracks will result in several more employees being added to
the C.P.R. repair gang.
A small track about 80 feet long
will also be erected alongside the
new tracks to be used in case of an
emergency. Tho new track will hold
at least forty cars. Four teams and
about twenty men are engaged in
rushing this work to completion.
Belfast, Ireland—For thc first
time on record a Canadian-bound
steamer sailed from Belfast Lough
conveying mails direct from the
Northern capital. The vessel was
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's S.S. "Metagama," which, incidentally, was built in Belfast. The
vessel anchored off Kilrool and 2.'1
bags of mail, together with some
100 emigrants from Ulster, were
conveyed to it by the Harbor Commissioners' tug "Musgrave."
Hitherto it had been the practicu
te send the mails to Liverpool and
other ports, from which they were
despatched, but, acting on instruction! from the secretary of the Post
Office in London, the present system was introduced.
One of the passengers wns a fivc-
ycar-old child, from Dublin, whose
parentn are in Canada. The little
one was in charge of a matron who
handed it. over to the matron of the
A Belfast "Telegraph" representative was shown over the "Metagama," and saw something of the
excellent arrangements made for
the comfort of passengers.
London, England — Major A.
Ewan Moore, London Manager of

"Dear Sir,—I beg to advise that
• certain Mr. Martin, Avenue des
Courses, Bruxelles, who has formerly resided in Canada, brought
ever by our Line in April of this

amounted to over 300,000 lbs.; one
plant bore 9 lbs. 2 oss., one potato
weighing well ever 2 lbs. This particular plant has been lent to us for

I In a winter night there Is no more perfect scene. The thousand lights of thc

ety that waits within.
The interior of the Chateau is in perfect keeping with the hli'orlc charm of
thc ancient city, while Its appointments
and cuisine are thc last word In com-
"ort and modern excellenc. It is orr
of those places where home comforts
are combined with the conveniences of

OVER all thc world there's not another place like Quebec. Its
beauty and Its old-world charm Imve
made It famous everywhere. Three
hundred years have passed since first
it began to be, and each one of those
years has left its mark upon thc town
until It has become a storehouse of
Canadian history. Tt is a place for all
the world to visit, and yet it is, perhaps,
less well known to Canadians than il
is to Americans who every year conic
north to see it when summer suns bathe
its bold outlines, or when winter snows
crown thc lofty citadel and thc town's
many spires. It Is in winter that Quebec is at its best. At no other time is
it so characteristically Canadian or
so typically French and it is in winter
that Quebec most enthusiastically
throws open its doors to invite 'lie
world to sec how joyously splendid winter in Cinada can be.

program of curling on the covered rhlk.
The snowshoe and skiing clubs of the
city have their programs of events well
under way, and there are endless opportunities for the guests to participate
in   the   outdoor   sports. Snowshoe
tramps, skiing events, and sleigh driving are daily occurranres and these are
organized under the direction of a

provide free S ientilic Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of Me many of suoh unfortunates, who, for the lack of such sen

This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service.   Careful enquiry
at the Govern nont offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the pn ant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion.    Nothing

years ago, thi first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States,   II doing excellent work. In England, some time  ago, Sir Ar

and he olafmi Lhat it is the only one in the British Empire.    Lotus have the
SECOND in Canada, To reach this worthy end money is urgently required
Fifty  Thousand Dollars  is  the  present  objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to fie located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby  Blind   from  every
province,  bo that,  this   APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early tnd generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies  Home   Association.    All  remittances
