by the provincial legislature
to be used in making lnnd
grants for the completion of

The 16,000,000 acres was
not all to be ceded away, he

500,000 acres was applicable
to the line between Vancouver and PritTco George, the
remainder being reserved for
the construction of a line into
the Peace river.
The 16,O0Q,OQQ acres, he
said, was made up of four
separate blocks,of which only
comparatively small portions
had been surveyed. In tbe
East Cariboo block of 2,845,s

Tbe latest product of aerial photography combined with ground
surveys is a map of the Red Lake
diatricj, in northwestern Ontario, in
wbich so much prospecting is being
done at present. By the use of thie
method, carried oo by tbe topographical survey, department of tbe
interior, Ottawa, in cooperation
witb tbe Royal Canadian air force,
a wealth of detail has been collected, comprieing pikes, rivers,
portages, falls aod similar infojma-
tioo, whicb would bave required aa
immense amouot of effort to obtaio
by ground surveys alone.
Tbe map bas beeo published oo
tho scale of one inch to two miles
and covers an area about forty miles
by sixty miles in extent, approximately centered at Red Lake.
Whereas prospecting has up to the
present been confined to areas close
to Red Lake itself, it is' aoticipated
that with tbe aid of tbe map as a
guide, the exteosioo of these activities over broader areas will be greatly
facilitated. As ao iodication of tb
maze of waterways io the district' it
may be stated tbat something like
700 lakes are shown. Indeed, so
many lakes and other features bave
been suddenly brought to ligbt that
only a relatively small number
bave been named.

Leonard Richmond, R.B.A..R.O.I.,
the well known British artist Is
among the latest to succumb to the
lure of singing the praises of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies. In Apollo,
a magazine of the arts, Mr. Richmond writes of the Rocky Mountains
as one of the most magnificent sights
of the world.
Towards the end of March 1925,
the artist made his first journey into
the heart of Canada. He writes, "As
the train advanced from Calgary, the
"Foothills" of the Rockies gradually
emerged   in   view,
appearance of a body-guard, or'
sentinels, guarding the sterner mountains beyond.
"It is not expedient or desirable for
me to describe in detail the emotional
ascending scale that my feelings
experienced as the train approached
the actual Rockies themselves. It is
enough to state that my highest
imaginative thoughts had never visualized so much impressive force and
dignity aB those austere mountains
conveyed that late afternoon in
''The general color on that particular afternoon was monotone in

superb draughtsmanship of the finely
designed groups of pine trees which
were almost black in tint, contrasting
sharply against the virgin snow.

In tnat- respect they are probably
unique. The intellectually endowed
modern painter haa scope enougn to
create works of art, based on the
innumerable suggestions of dynamic
force, grim tragedies of form caused
by ancient volcanic eruptions, and
occult feelings, too, can be awakened
by close contact and communion
with the soul of the mountains.
"It is impossible for any artist to
sketch more than a fraction of such
a vast area of varied subjects. Once
the artist is situated right in the
mountains there is no occasion to seek
for subjects or to walk any distance
for desirable views. There is something interesting to paint from any
"Some of the most interesting
pictures that I have seen recently of
the Rockies are those where the
artist has improvised in colour and
form on the original theme in nature.
By this means Nature can be made to
look more natural in a picture and
the artist's thoughts can be crystallized   into   positive   expression."
Mr. Richmond, who painted a
number of beautiful views, states that
although Lakes Louise, O'Hara,
Moraine, and Emerald are famous in
the lake world of Canada, he was
intrigued by the smaller sisters, Lake
Mirror and Lake Agnes, known as
the "Lakes in the Clouds," above

FRIDAY,. APRIL 23, 1926
Tbe 1926 budget, introduced iu the house
of commons last Thursday by the finance
minister, seems to have gained instantaneous
favor with all classes ofCanadians.irrespective
of political affiliations. The only disgruntled
element appears to be the American automobile manufacturers on this side of the international boundary lint-.; and as they have
still a margin of profit to pocket of 20 der cent
on cheap cars and 27£ per on high priced ones
above the price at which they sell them on
the American side of the line, fair-minded
people agree that they have received liberal
treatment. If they become too refractory,
another cut of 10 per cent in the tariff would
do them good.
The budget shows that the income tax exemption for single men goes up from one
thousand to fiteen hundred dollars, while the
exemption for married men without dependents, now at two thousand, is increased to
thrae thousand. These increased exemptions,
it is said, apply to last year's income tax, now
payable. The 4 per cent income tax rate is cut
to 2 per cent. The receipt tax is wiped, out,
while 2-cent postago will return on July 1.
The sales tax is removed on many articles and
reduced on others.
The 35 per cent duty on autos is reduced
to 20 per cent on cars costing less than $1200,
and to 27£ per cent on cars costing more than
that sum.
The budget also shows an increase in ordinary revenue for the Dominion for the fiscal
year ending March 31 of thirty million dollars.
Ordinary reveuue has a surplus over expenditure of thirty-five millions. The national
debt has been reduced during thc year by
twenty-two and o e-half millions. The Can-
nadian National railway earnings for the fiscal year are thirty thaee millions above operating charges exclusive of interest
Canada's trade shows a favorable balance
of four hundred and two millions for the year,
the greatest since tbe war.

temple of Apollo at Bassal in Greece, buiit
abont 470 B. C . of yellow sandstone, was
faced ^entirely, both inside and out, with
stucco. The stucco was an ideal ground for
the decorative poly, hrome painting which at
that period of Grecian history had reached a
very high degree of beauty. Not ouly the
wall but also the temple pavements were made
of a specially resistant stucco and stained in
various patterns with gay pigments. As almost
all early art was in the decorative field it
would have been very difficult for tho artists
of those bygone days to have progressed very
far without some material of the type of stucco to provide the groundwork for their ertistic
labors. We are now using these same decorative schemes on the walls of the modern
home; perhaps soon we shall be using them
on the floors as well.
Before attacking an enemy map out your
line of retreat.
London is following great other cities like
New York and Chicago in a tumultuous Strug
gie to expand and get breathing space for its
business districts.   And in London the problem is pressingly acute.   The whole "city" is
wriggling to  free itself from archaic bonds,
particularly the cramped quarters near the
Bank of England, where   inches are worth
thousands.   As a result, many of the old city
firms are barking defiance at tradition and go
ing westward—to the "West End" district of
shops and hotels and theaters.   A new busi
ness London is entirely within the   possibili
ties of a decade.
The slogan or catch-phrase has reached a
high stage cf development  in  Canada.    By
the same token tbe slogan plays a considerable part in the commercial, political and civic
life of the Canadian people.   None will deny-|
the value of the catch phrase in national advertising   and even in local commercialism-
Few nationally known products are not sold
under a copyrighted trade phrase.   Do you
know of an automobile, from tbe cheapest to
the most formida ly priced, that can not be
singled out by some slogan?   To think of one
would be as difficult as finding a slogaoless
soap or city.   It is irretutabla that slogans
sell where nothing else will, but it would be
unjust to the public to say tbat it takes the
catch-phrases at their word.   Barnum annually proclaimed his circus as "bigger and better than ever," and his successors are emulating him today, but nobody goes  to the circus
just   because   of this "slight exaggeration."
The catch-ph ase or advertising slogan is   as
much a part of Canadian business methods as
advertising itself.   There  is  nothing illegitimate or reprensible in the substitution, but
its power as a salesman   is   almost supernatural.
Home was originally built abont the hearth-
fire; and a discerning man seeks to preserve
the fireplace.
The hpmebuilder of today is perhaps apt to
tbink of stucco as more or less of an innovation, something very new and modern. But
stucco, like many other things of beauty, had
iis beginning  back in  the Dark ages.    Tbe
You have to make allowances for the

Poems From Eastern Lands
Description of Circassian Women
Ahl her cheeks doth rob the fair sun of its sight,
And ber sweet grace envy bringe to Venus bright,
Like to moons are the Circassian damsels fair;
Whatso'er the lover seeks he findeth there.
Like to tall palm-trees their slender forms in  grace,
Or a ladder to the clear moon of their face.
With the two feet of the eye doth one ascend,
But the viscion of the mind too one must bend,
Since their lips and cheeks are taverns of wine,
Is it strange their eyes inebriate should shine?
Since like rubies are created their two lips,
Doubly seared tbe lover's heart, like the tulip's,
Since their bodies are distillled from moon and sun.
How an equal to their pure frame find can one?
Though they lovelier than Georgians may be,
Still iu Georgians one will great atttactions see
Closely curtained sit they all in virtue's place;
Pure of skirt is ever this unrivalled race;
Pnre and free from stain is every act of theirs;
Not a soil the vestment of their honor bears;
Marked with chastity indeed, of noble heart,
Ever seeking to fulfil the righteous part;
Bright with bounty and fidelity and sense,
How that blessed nature glows with light intense!
Think not with this race tbat any can compare
Upon earth, unless it be the Georgian fair,
—Fazil Beg.

Progress ln farm field work in the
coming months depends largely on the
condition of the work horses. Soft
from the winter's rest, farm work
horses require conditioning: Just aa an
athlete requires training for his test
Every farmer knows that two or
three weeks spent ln a gradual toughening and conditioning of a horse for
thc heavy work ls more than made up
before the season of heavy field work
Is over. Not only does this conditioning Include breaking them ln. to the
long hours of hard pull that they
must undergo, but applies as well to
, breaking them In to a working ration.
It ls poor practice to allow a horse
to pasture on much new lushy grass
if he is to go on a strenuous work
schedule. A little grass ls good for
Mm, helps to condition him, but he
must have oats, bran or old corn, or
still better, a combination of the three
and good sound hay. These are the
best possible rations ln the spring and
early summer. The horse that ls fed
a major ration of grass soon gets soft,
sweats profusely, lags and quickly
plays out Oats, bran, corn and hay
will give htm stamina and leave him
ln the best condition at the end of
the day.
By treating old Dobbin fairly, getting him ready for spring work with
dally exercise, keeping him thoroughly
groomed, especially while shedding,
and a work ration instead of his
winter feed will pay big dividends ln
a short time.
If the horse takes a long time to
shed his coat, this can be facilitated
by thorough, frequent grooming and
lf this does not do the work, a clipping
all over will get him through the shedding period quickly. After the horse
has started to work in the field. It is
advisable to bathe the shoulders and
neck two or three times daily with
cold, soft, salty water or with white
oak bark tea which toughens and
cleanses the chafed parts.
A prominent veterinarian states
that excessive sweating Is remedied
by clipping tbe horse. Excessive
sweating weakens the animal and lt Is
doubtless quite advisable to clip him
to relieve this condition. It Is also
true that this practice enables the
horse to be thoroughly groomed ln
much less time than when It retains
its long winter coat of shaggy hair.

Ancient Bogey Laid to Rest
Canadian Pacific President Outlines His Company's Attitude to Railway
Situation in  Important Statement—Believes Improvement in
National   Conditions Will   Provide   Best Solutions of
Railway Problems.
In an address to
* the Montreal
Canadian Olub
recently, E. W.
Beatty, Chairman and President of the Canadian Pacific,
made an .'mport-
ant contribution
to public understanding of the
Canadian railway situation.
Mr. Beatty briefly outlined rail-
pwn»n*tvKi' way bUtory.
K. n. Beany, n.u     wlien amb|t-ous
railway projects set afoot after
the completion of the Canadian Pacific had failed because far abend of
national or commercial necessities
and were taken over by the Government to prevent their physical dissolution and to save the credit of
Canada and Canadian institutions, the
action of the Government was. variously viewed. Some opposed it fearing the consequences. of tbe excursion of the government into business; others approved becauso they
regarded Government ownership as a
panacea for most of our transportation and economic ills.
Never Wanted C. N. R.
The successive steps towards government acquisition of these properties Vas justified by some who favored it by the bogey of tlie Canadian
Pacific Railway Coinpany. Wben
the absorption of lho Canadian
Northern was proposed the people
were told that tbe Canadian Pacific
had actually made a very favorable
bid for them. "The Canadian Pacific," said Mr. Beatty, "wore not
anxious to acquire them and had
made no offer of any kind for them.
Parliament was later urged to support government acquisition cf the
Grand Trunk partly on the ground
that otherwise tbose roads would be
'gobbled up by the C. P. R.'
"There existed objections that rendered that possibility almost ridiculously remote. There' existed by
statute absolute prohibition against
any arrangement of amalgamation.
Duplication by the Grand Trunk of
tben existing Canadian Pacific facilities rendered its acquisition unnecessary and unwise. Tha Grand
Trunk could not be divorced from
the Grand Trunk Pacific with its
enormous liabilities, which, I imagine, no corporation in Canada could
think of assuming even if a'jlo lo do
sa Lastly, tho acquisition of tho
Qrand Trunk had never boen Huggest-
od to the Canartian I'acific or by tho
Canadian Pacific, aiul had novcr bcen
considered or contemplated In any
way or by any means, direct or indirect. It was -the old familiar bogey,
namely, that of securing an imaginary secondary purchaser In rrder to
make the purchase mora attractive
to those who had sorr.a doubt as to
whether or not thr-y wished to make
'he purchase at all.
"Methods   hs,ve  not changed and
oeviodlcallv  cm-n r,*.-.-.*.—~  -**'  —•,■,_
splracy to take over or ln some way
Injure the property of our competitors and that these aro encouraged
by those friendly to the Canadian
Pacific. So long as there io government ownership, political considerations will be involved, and wbere
there are political considerations
there are many rumours and much
propaganda and publicity. The
changes which have reduced Canada's
railways to two large systems, one
govcrnmentally and the olhji* privately owned and operated, have interjected to a greater extent political considerations as part of business
administration. They naturally Interest men in public life and taxpayers, the former providing the
necessary funds and the latter paying the 'bills. /
Private Initiative Landed.
"The Canadian Pacific pays in Federal taxes $5,479 per day for the privilege of engaging in railway competition with the government of its own
country. The things upon which the
progress of this country has heretofore depended are those Upon
which our future prosperity will likewise depend. Private initiative and
the effort of corporations, groups
of men and Individuals are what will
make for Canada's commercial prosperity and economic stability. I believe with the late President Harding
that there should be less government in business and more business
in. government. And so, when you
turn your minds to this railway problem, remember that public opinion
ls often misinformed because tho
facts are not in the possession of
those who advocate one theory or
another; that where you have two
houses and not enough guests to fill
both there is bound to be some waste
due to duplication of facilities; that
when companies are in competition,
each must preserve and expand its
business else it will die and that
healthy competition is good provided
the minimum of waste is secured by
economical administration.
"The burdens of the country are
heavy and should be reduced eo far
as reasonable and with expedition.
The Canadian Pacific has endeavored
to give the best service possible, and
to show its faith to the country by
reasonable expansion of Us facilities
where public   necessities'* required.
"Nothing i3 more important to the
successful operaL.cn of Canada's railways than fair rate schedules. Pressure is porioilieally brought to boar
looking to the granting of rate con-
ces-Uons on ground of national or
loc.il lnteresti and I fear many Canadians feci th-'.t a difference in the
character of ownership of there railways invo'vos a difference in attitude
towards the matter of adequate revenues. The only existing proKem respecting rales is their reasonableness
und freedom from 'unjust discrimination.' These fundamentals do
uot chango with the character of the
ownership ot tba two pr'neipal companies.
"I hope I wiil not iWe to sec tho
flnv Whpl   eft-"'""-*   rtcttlmt-lrrtt   p».<" Tin-
tionalizcd because I would regard
nationalization in* these huge properties, without competition and politically influenced ln their administration, aa would inevitably be the
ca: e, to constitute the greatest political and commercial menace this
country could possibly experience.
As conditions are, there is no sounder
or safer principle than those laid
down ln the letter and spirit of the
Railway Act which stipulates for reasonable rates and prohibits unjust
.discrimination and has regard to service and Its costs as a factor In determining what a shipper should pay.
Spur of Competition Needed.
"A year ago a careful, unbiased
enquiry was conducted by the Senate
to obtain tbe personal views of men
of acknowledged authority on finance, transportation and business to
develop a discussion In respect of a
possible solution of our transportation problems. Asked if I believed ln
a railway monopoly for this country,
I answered that while no one should
attempt to forecast conditions for the
next few years with that certainty
Which would justify a definite and
unchangeable view, I did not believe"
in a monopoly. • I said I thought a
merger would involve difficulties ln
administration which were scarcely
contemplated and which would ln
time affect the character of the service given. I did not know how it
would be possible for an enterprise
with one hundred to one hundred and
fifty thousand employees to be maintained In the highest state of efficiency without the Bpur of competition.
"These two systems are strongly
competing and the people of Canada
are obtaining excellent transportation facilities at lower rates than are
charged in any other country in the
world. The officers of the two systems get along in as complete harmony as you would expect or I would
want We both realize that our future prosperity is inextricably linked
with that of the country.
"We gain little by living ln a world
of criticism of our past railway mistakes—Berious though they have
turned out to be. It would, I think,
be more profitable to devote our
minds to methods of improving our
national conditions. Our problems
revolve around the necessity for more
people, lower taxation and definite
fiscal policies national ln their purpose and their scope. If we will
remedy these conditions we can face
our railway problem with the certainty of settling it when our perspective is clearer because our knowledge is more precise, and when wo
see our railways respond to the Impetus which the country alone can
give to them. Railway re-arrangements can save money but they cannot create new traffic and ln tlie last
analysis traffic volume, which means,
the country's development and commercial prosperity, will determine
tho extent of the transportation burden,!
Lady Byng Inspired by Rockies
_ on the famous
"M° one nas any "J*1*to |Peak w'*h
11 authority ot Canada who has
seen only the East or the West."
It was Her Excellency the Lady
Byng ot Vimy who made this statement recently at a luncheon nt the
Ottawa Women's Canadian Club
shortly after her return from a trip
across and through Canada over a
matter of some eighty thouaand
miles. Accompanying His Excellency
the Governor General, Lady Byng
had visited practically all parts of
Canada meeting at every stopping
place the warm welcome Canadians
everywhere reserve for "Byng 6T
Vimy" and his charming Lady and,
not less important, becoming acquainted with Canada's unrivalled
and never-ending succession of scenic
"I feel I have some plea to come to
speak to you on Canada",said Her
Excellency. "I come as a sort of advertising agent to beg of you that
you go west and visit there. I know
<lsi tarrlhla Question of expense but
let me tell you, it is well worth it.
I do so regret that people will go to
the South ot France or some seaside
resort, rather than view the beauties
of their own Canadia.i Rockies and of
Vancouver Island."
Lady Byng described her first view
of the Rockies. "It was so great an
inspiration. I cannot convey the
beauty and wonder of tbat undulating
line rising out of the mist; that endless, unending chain of marvellous
mountains and the valleys below in
colours of acquamarine and emeralds."
The opinion of Her Excellency
regarding Western Canada is not that
of a mere passerby. With the Governor-General she has been all over
the country, going by motor where
the rail and river do not penetrate.
"There are those," said Lady Byng,
"who visit Canada landing at Quebec,
coming on to Montreal, proceeding to
Ottawa, and Toronto, wno have gone
away giving their view on Canada.
Such views are always defective even
if sometimes they are not wholly
unfair and unjust. Canada's bigness
is evident on the map, but its actual
size is only realised through direct
contact and acquaintanceship."
The iaea of interchanging visits
east and west is developing the
attitude so admirably taken by the
wife of the Governor-General should
speed the movement and give it
wider impetus.
In our Dominion different localities
have different interests and problems,
and nothing but a close and sym-

pathetic study of cause and effect will
solve the difficulties which confront
the country as a whole. Books and
newspapers assist somewhat in bringing into closer touch the eastern,
centred and western regions-of the
Dominion. But not until the people
living east visit the west and the
people in the west visit the older
firovinces — visit them with the
ntention of becoming acquainted
with the life and ideals of the native
born, will any degree of intimacy or
understanding be reached.
The lesson of Lady Byng's speech,
then, ls for Canadians, when they go
travelling on holiday, to extend their
knowledge of the structure and
economic life of the people in other
parts of the country than their own
and to see for themselves the beauty
of Canadian scenery which travellers
from other lands) say is unexcelled the
world over and 6f w'nch every
province has its full share — see
Canada first, and see it from Halifax
to Victoria.

Carelessness Destroys
3,000,000 Annually
of Canadian forests
Loss of standing timber by fire continues to be appalling.   On the average
over 3, ,500 million board feet are destroyed    annually.     The    forests   of
Canada are being depleted at a rate
they cannot.possibly withstand; more
than half of this depletion is due   to
fire, insects and decay.   The future of
the forest industry is just as dependent
on the seedling trees and young growth
as the pulp and paper and lumber mills,
and industry generally, are dependent
on mature timber—both must be saved
from the ravages of fire.
In addition to the shelter afforded by
the forest to the farmer and his stock,
settlers in forested regions are vitally
dependent on the woods for winter
employment. Care with fire in land-
clearing operations is all-essential—
burned timber pays no wages.
Canada has the finest inland fishing
in the world, but the splendid food
and game fish require clean, cool water
in the streams tp ensure prolific production. Forest fires are inimical to
fish life.
Game animals attract foreign tourists
and induce Canadians to seek pleasure,
health and adventure in the great outdoors. These animals are distinctly a
forest resource—utterly dependent on
it for protection and food. Forest fires
are most destructive of such wild life.
Ninety per cent of the forest fires are
caused by carelessness. Are you doing
your part to prevent this wanton waste
and destruction?
