Such officers and ladies now
I see not aod my sorrows grow.
With graceful sweep their girdles fell,
Then in the days of old.
The ladies' side hair, with a swell,
Like scorpion's tail, rose bold.
Such, if.I saw them in these days,
I'd follow with admiring gaze.
So hung their girdles, not for ehow;—
To their own length 'twas due.
'Twas not by art their hair curled so;—
By nature so it grew.
I seek such manners now in vain,
And pine for them with longing pain.

ANEW era in Canada's export
cattle trade is believed to have
been begun with the organization of the Livestock Steamships
Limited for the purposo of operating a fleet of all-cattle boats from
eastern Canadian seaports to Great
Britain. Tho first boat ever designed solely for the transport of
cattle, the S.S. Ontario, sailed from
Saint John on January 24th with a
cargo of 1,168 Canadian cattle for
Glasgow. Tho sailing of this
steamship, which is shown above,
marks not only tho inauguration
of an entirely new type of cattle
boat, and the advent of a new steamship line plying between Canadian
and British ports, but also, in the
opinion of export cattlemen present, a significant movement towards enlarging the cattle export
trade of the Dominion and the r lacing of the Canadian exporter in a
position where he will be ablo to
compete on more equal terms  with
his Irish competitors.
The formation of the new line,
which is known as the Livestock
Steamships Limited, is due to Mr.
TI. P. Kennedy, president of the
Livestock Producers of Canada—
probably the largest exporter of
cattle in the Dominion—and Albert
Jensen, steamship operator of
Copenhagen and London. With
them are associated in the venture
a group of men in Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and other parts of
Canada. Mr. Kennedy is shown in
the group of pictures above. Beside him is a scene on board the
S.S. Ontario, showing the loading
of feed for the first cargo. While
the photograph at the top is of a
group of cattle on one of Mr. Kennedy's feed lots adjoining the Canadian National Railways at Edmonton, where many hundred head of
cattle have been prepared for export during the past two years under his supervision.
The "Ontario" is the first of four
sister ships to be placed in operation immediately and is equipped
to carry cattle on five decks. All
decks are of steel and cement construction and access is had to each
by runways and elevators. Each
deck is divided into a series of
stalls, each of which accommodates
four animals. Ventilation is provided by a series of turbine ventilators, which produce a complete
change of air on every deck every
six minutes. The schedule calls for
a round trip by the "Ontario" every
27 days and the cattle industry of
Canada will be able to control the
steamship to any desired port,
thereby ensuring to the shippers
the best market prices.—C.N.R.

Comparatively few of the thousands of miles of railroad
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 are in constant use which
beside being labor 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 the Canadian Pacific,
•nd notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are more urgently required.
r 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 truck which it governs.
To the railroad official it is more. It acts as watchman
■gainst broken rails, open switches, a fouled track or any
other obstruction. Through a circuit in the rail this 'n .
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for the reaso .
that another train is occupying the block, or that there h
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the signal may not pass.
And while it awaits a through signal, trains following in
the rear may not approach for the reason that they ara
also stopped by an automatic Bignal 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 ov<*r-estimated. Not only is labor saved, but tht
company is able to ensure absolute protection.
H. B. Beaumont, assistant steamship general passenger agent, has
been appointed assistant to the
steamship passenger traffic manager of the Canadian Pacific Steamships, according to recent advices at
the head offices of the company.
Canada's agricultural growth during; the past .quarter of a century is
we'l illustrated by figures compiled by the Dominion Government,
which show that during the past
year field crops had an estimated
value of $946,166,000, as compared
with (196,673,000 in  1900.
Production on Nova Scotia farms
in 1925 amounted to approximately
140,420,000, as compared with $36,-
435,000 in the previous year. Items
making up this total were: Dairy,
$10,200,000; livestock, $2,200,000;
field crops, $18,700,000; poultry products, $1,220,000; fruits and vegetables, $8,000,000.
A railway car, originally built as
an observation car for the Canadian
Pacific Railway, was used as a
"chapelle ardente" and funeral coach
to transport the remains of the late
Queen Mother of Italy. This car
was used in hospital service during
the war and was sold, with others,
to thc Italian State Railways after
the armistice.
Strange scenes are laid in the
Canadian west on account of hoarfrost and snow. Thc trees and
shrubs are covered with snow forming strange white animals in the
Kicking Horse Pass region. A number of photographs were taken recently in this neighborhood showing
grotesque and terrifying figures in
the form  of prehistoric animals.
Her Excellency, Lady Byng, wife
of the Governor-General of Canada,

vivid description of the scenic beauties of the Canadian Pacific Rockies.
She advised Canadians to see

Owing to the cheap hydro-electric
power available, the American Cellulose and Chemical Company is to
locate at Drummondville, Quebec,
very shortly. The Canadian company will be known as the Canadian
Cellulose and Chemical Company, it
is understood, and the output will
consist of rayon and artificial siUc.
About $7,000,000 will be used for
buildings and plant equipment.
One hundred all-steel 75-ton or«
cars ordered by the Canadian Pacific Railway from the Canadian Car
and Foundry Company, have now
been completed and are ready for
delivery. Each of the cars has •
capacity of about eighty tons in a
holding content of 1,230 cubic feet,
and the wheels are of solid wrought
steel. The cars will be largely uaed
in the Sudbury district.
At least 600 boys will pass
through the Rurnside Lodge, tha
Western Ontario distribution centra
in Woodstock, Ontario, to become
farm workers under the Salvation
Army juvenile farm labor system
during 1926, according to Adjutant
Lee, chief of the lodge. Adjutant
Lee also stated that the first party,
numbering fifty, have all been
spoken for, although they ara still
on their way from England.
Cases of automobiles driven directly at trains in the course of traversing a level crossing during the first
four weeks of 1926 were increased
to four, or at the rate of one a week,
when an auto truck struck the leading car of seventeen cars passing
over the Yonge Street crossing at
j Toronto. The third prize for carelessness went to an autobus driver
•t Hull, Quebec, who drove his car
through both gates of the Chelsea
Road level crossing, in the west ent
