Gently and soft the east wind blows,
And then there falls the pelting rain.
Wben anxious fears pressed round you close,
Then linked together were we twain. *
Now happy, and your mind at rest,
Yon turn and cast me from your breast.
Gently and soft the east wind blows,
And then there comes the whirlwind wild.
When anxious fears pressed round you close,
Your bosom held me as a child.
Now happy, and in peaceful state,
You throw me ofi and quite forget.
Gently and soft the east wind blows,
Then round the rooky height it storms.
Each plant its leaves all dying shows;
The trees display their withered forms
My virtues great forgotten all,
You keep in mind my faults, though small.

high winds and .drifting snow, in
blizzards which hid the lead dog
from the driver, the crack teams of
the continent fought to maintain or
overcome leads In the Eastern International Dog Sled Derby held at
Quebec recently under the auspices
of the Frontenac Winter Sports Club.
Among the famous competitors were
Emlle St. Goddard, winner at Le Pas,
Manitoba, last year; Shorty Russick,
world's champion 200 mile non-stop
driver; Earl Brydges, Quebec winner in 1924; Bill Grayson, veteran
musher; Francois Dupuls, of Quebec,
who won the Derby ^his year; WaP
den, of Wonalancet, N.H.; Chnnnlngt
of Boston; and others.
The visitors at Quebec nickedlthetr
favourites from Russlck's ten huskies, St. Goddard's cross-bred;- led
by Hert, Brydgt**   hounds,   Dupuis'
mixed team and Channing's long
lean hounds. No records were expected. It was thought at first that
Russlck's pups of fourteen months
would crack under the strain or that
St. Goddard, who had undergone a
painful operation several months before, would weaken. Joseph "Dupuls
was considered a likely winner. But
out of the dark, on the third and last
day of the -race, came his brother,
Francois Dupuls, leading the field by
a scant ten seconds.
In winning the gold cup and one
thousand dollars, Francois Dupuis
established a new world's record,
eclipsing the reoord of 12.49.45 established last year by St. Goddard,
by seventeen minutes and thirty-five
seconds. Last year's record was also
bs-t-***. hy Russick. second in th!;;
year's race, who   covered   the   123
miles ln 12 hours and forty minutes.
Out of the nineteen teams that
started the race, all but one finished,
this being Wilbrod Poirier, of Anson-
ville, Quebec, who trailed the field
on Thursday and Friday and found
the third day's prospects too tough.
Thousands of people were on hand
as the team driven by Dupuis for A.
McKay and Company, of Quebec,
finished the last lap of the gruelling
run,' closely followed by Russick. A
large number of enthusiasts were
also present in the evening at a
banquet at the Chateau Frontenac,
when Hon. W. Gerard Power, paesl-
dent of the Quebec Harbour Commission, acted as chairman and presented the prizes. Young Paddy Nolan
was awarded a cup and a cash prizo
for being the youngest driver ever
having taken part In a race of such
a nature.

/Comparatively few of the thousands of miles ol railroad
S^in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
organization'which does not rely to a greater or lesser
extent on electricity as an aid to efficient operation and
service. .Electricity plays an important part in all of the
great Railroad Shops through the country. Some trains
and cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored in batteries. Bridges are operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices arc in constant use which
beside being lahor saving do away with the human element which might make for inefficiency. Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of tic Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are more urgently required.
' To the average layman an automatic signal is just a
signal, and the general'public is only interested in it
because it gives added protection, or rather'eliminates
possible danger from the portion of track which it governs.
To the railroad official it is more. It acts as watchman
against broken rails, open switches, a fouled track or any
other obstruction. Through a drcuit in the rail this \,
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for the rcaso*.
that another train is occupying the block, or that there i-,
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the Bignal may not pass.
And while it awaits a through signal, trains following in
the rear may not approach for the reason that they ars
also stopped by an automatic signal which will -not
release them until the preceding train has passed from
that section of the track which they desire to enter.
A perfect system. No electrical circuit — no through
signal — no train may pass.
The value of this system in the Rockies can hardly
be ovar-estimated. Not only is labor saved, but ths
company is able *.o ensure absolute protection.

Assisted Immigrants
Are Very Expensive
We, the taxpayers of Canada, are
going to pay immigrants from tbe
old country $1000 each to settle on
the prairie farm lands Must be poor
land or a p or breed of settlers.
What would our grandfathers and
greats grandf tbers who settled tbe
ulder provinces tbink of tbis? They
paid a dollar au acre for their land,
cleared it and made a living without
government assistance. Tbey built
the roads to tbe nearest "village.
Tbose pioneers bad to clear busb
farms; now the country is giving
tlioufand.do-lir bonuses to settlers
on prairie land. Wbere will such
settlers be after the $1000 is gone?
Tbe best that can be said about the
scheme ia that it ie imbecile. The
man wbo woutd vote to impose increased tavation on tbe wage earners
of the country fs unfit to represent
intelligent men and wrm»n in parliament. A spoon-fed im migrant
never was a success in sny country.
At the present time CanndB does not
nped iunmigrnnK Expunpion in the
west should be by young men snd
youog women from the older provss
vinces. Give tbem tbe same opportunity tbat is offered immigrants
and a great and populous west wi
result. Spoonfed men and stall f-d
cattle will prove misfits inN.he west,
