TheProfits in TeaGrowing"
The price of good quality tea haB
risen io the last two years between
20c and 25c per pound The demand

All those engaged in selling the

making any more profit—bave been
hoping for overproduction. This is
inevitable wben such profits are
being made and prices will tben
fall. But tea is still getting dearer,

The Growth of Canada
The Dominion bureau of st tistics is releasing today the first volume of the final report
on the census of 1921. The main results of
the census have been given out in a series of
some thirty bulletins, each dealing with specific aspects of population and agriculture,
The volume, however, contains the final detailed figures by local units, showing (1) the
numbers, sex und geographical distribution of
the population, (2) the racial origins, and (3)
the religions. Tlu volume also contains the
administrative report on the taking of the
Accordiug to the British North America
Act 1837, the taking of a census is one of
tventy-eight specific subjects exclusively assigned to the Dominion as distinguished Irom
provincial auhority. The first c nsus act was
passed by the parliament of Canada in 1870
and the first census of the Dominion of Canada
was taken in 1871. Altogether six decennial
oensuses of Canada have been taken since the
formation of the Dominion.
Census taking dates back from a very early
period. Moses numbered the Children of
Israel, in the fifteen century B.C. But investigations of a similar nature were known many
centuries earlier, in Babylonia about 3800 B.
C.( in China about 3000 B. C, and in Pgypt
about 2200. A census taken by King David
in 1017 B. (J. achieved an evil notoriety in
history from the divine wrath which it is recorded to have provoked and which was cited
for many generations in Europe in warning
against the spirit of inquiry. As late as 1753
the taking of a census was condemned on religious grounds in the British house of commons, when more than one member looked
upon the proposal as ominous and feared lest
some public misfortune should follow t"he
numbering. The Romans were assiduous census tokers both under the republic and the
empire and in later years the Breviary of
Charlemagne in A.D. 808 and the Domesday
Book of William the Conqueror (A.D. 1086)
are celebrated mediaeval censuses. Later, for
several centuries, the idea of census taking
disappeared from Europe.
This report, however, brings to notice that
credit for taking the fiist census as known in
modern times belongs to Canada.   The year
was 1666, and  the census  was  one of the
Colony of New France, asJCanada was then
called. This census was a systematic] record
of each individual by name, taken at a fixed
date, showing sex, occupation, conjugal and
family conditions.   The records of it are carefully preserved in the archives of Paris, a
transcript of which may be seen in Ottawa.
When it is recalled that in Europe the first
censuses date only from the eighteenth  century, . notably those of Prussia   (1719) and
Sweden (1748)and France and England (1801),
'    the achievement ofthe primitive St, Lawrence
colony in instituting what is today one of the
■■   principal instruments of government in every
,  civilized community calls for more than pass-
-  ing appreciation.
'      From 1666 to 1763, when the French regime
ended,  no fewer than  fifteen censuses were
As above stated, tbe main figures of tbe
1921 census have already been made available
to the public, but the following may be noted:
The total population of Canada in 1871 was
3,689,257; fifty years afterwards in 1921 it was
8,788,485, an increase of 138.22 per cent. In
the last decade the ii crease was 21.95 per
cent, while in the first decade following confederation it was 17 23 per cent, in the se ond
11.76 per cent, in the third 11.13 per cent,and
in the fourth 34.17 per cent.
It is also interesting to not- that in 1871
Ontario, possessedjiaarly 44 per ceut of the
population of Canada and Quebec a little better than 32 per cent, while in 1921 Ontario
possetses 33.38 per cent and Quebec 26.87 per
cent of tbe total population. The relative po
sition of the Maritime provinces as, regards
population in 1871 and 1921. is strikingly
illustrated by the fact that at the date of con
federation they had 20.8 per cent of the total
podulation as against 11.4 per cent in 1921.
Of course, thejexplanation lies in the growth
of the Prairie provinces,    ln  1871 out of a
taken in New Canada, nor was this censu
- taking limited to wliBt is now the province of
Que' ec, as in the latter years of this period
seven similar censuses were taken of
Nova Scotia, six of Newfoundland and one of
Prince Edward Island.
Under British occupation there were censuses of Canada in 1765,1784 and 1790. From
,1817 onwards census taking in Canada has
! been more or less frequent, but it was only
total populatiou of 3,689,257 only 18,000 or
•42 per cent dwelt in the middle west; in 1901
they possessed slightly more than 3 per cent
ofthe total population, while in 1921 they
had more than 22 per cent.
The growth of uri an population in Canada
is forcibly illustrated by the fact that in 1921
there were 109 cities and towns in Canada
with a population of 5000 and over, as against
87 in 1911, 57 in 1901, 45 in 1891, 34 in 1881
and 21 in 1871. In 1891 the population living
urban centers made up 31.8 per ce-it of the
total population; in 1901 it had climbed to 37.5
per cent; in 1911 to 45.4 per cent, and in 1921
to 49.5 per cent. From 1891 to 1921 the rural
population showed a gain of 34 per cent as
against a gain of 183 per cent in urban popu
tion in the thirty years.
In 1871 Montreal, within the area comprised
within its present limits, had a population of
about 115,000 as against 618,506 in 1921, and
Toronto, similarly considered, grew in the
fifty years from 59,000 to 521r893. Winnipeg,
which scarcely found a place on the map in
1871 with 241 persons, in 1921 had 179.087.
Among the outstanding features may be noted
that Vancouver and Calgary were first noted
in the 1891 census, while Edmonton, Regiua
aud Saskatoon did not find a place in the censuses previous to 1901. These are now large
and thriving centers of population, trade and
The effects of immigration on  the ethnic
composition of the population is illustrated by
the fact that in 1881 59 per cent of the population  was   of  English, Irish and "''Scottish
origin, 31 per cont of French origin (nearly all
native born), and 2J per cent Indian, leaving
only about   8J per cent of the population as
belonging to other races, while in 1911, or
thirty years later, the proportion was as foi
lows:   British   races 54 per cent, Freuch 28£
per cents. Indians less than IJ per cent, and
all other races nearly 16 per cent.   In 1921
the proportion was, British   races 55.5 per
cont, French 27.9, Indians \-\ per cent, leav
ing all other races with 15.42 per cent of the
total population.
The section dealing with the classification
ofthe population according to religious beliefs enables persons who are interested in such
a classification to ascertain with the fullest detail the relative strength of the various denominations by counties, townships and cities.
Of the total population in 1901, the Church
of England claimed 12 68 per cent; Baptists
5.92 percent; Lutherans 1.72 per cent, Methodists 17.07 per cent; Pre-byLerians 15 68 per
cent; Roman Catholics 41,51 per cent, while
iii 1921, twenty years later, the percent pro
portions were, Church of England 16.02 per
cent; Baptists 4.80; Luthomis 3,28 per cent;
Methodists 13.18 per cont; Presbyterians
16.03 par cent, and Roman Catholic 38.50
percent. The Jews, which numbered 16,
401, or less than one third of one per cent of
the population in 1901, hid 125,190adherents
in 1921, or 1.42 per cent of the jotal population.

The Devil's Potholes
National Park, is one of the
natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain region. A vast
cleft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one' may step
across it easily, draws from the
tourist' expressions of awe and
■wonder at the power of accumulated forces of water.
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the* Maligne
River, mysterious as to its source
and fpr.part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
join the quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through the narrow
gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
eddies being churned to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo   against
Entrance to Cave, Maligne Canyon
the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From the footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced the effect of the waters on the rocky
sides., Here "and there, seemingly
tired of the effort to stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
the gorge appear to have leaned
toward one another, until an intervening rock cast itself into the narrow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists-
feel;, as they stand admiring the
glint of the noon-day sun upon the
falling water.
Maligne Canyon is a mecca for
visitors to Jasper Park Lodge, the
splendid log-cabin hostelry of the
Canadian National Railways, and
rightly so, for there are few na
tural rock formations to equal in
interest those found in the canyon
The Devil's Potholes, curious indentations in the solid rock over
which the Maligne River flowed before the Canyon was worn to its
present depth, are holes worn deep
in the surface rock by the a-jjtion
of swirling flood waters, when a
larg;* stone has been whirled round
and round in an untiring circle
until the stone itself was worn
small and round, and deep circular
holes have been' ground into the
surface of the rock, remaining as
mute testimony to the power of
rusting waters.
Maligne Canyon, while one of the
most wonderful formations to be
found in the Rocky Mountains, is
but one of the many natural attractions of Jasper National Park
In addition there are the snowcapped peaks on every side; the
glaciers of Mount Edith Cavell and
The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, the Hoodoos of the
Cavell motor highway and hundreds of others. Wild animal life
is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to the
tired holiday-seeker.
And in addition to the natural
Beauties of the Park, a commodious
log cabin bungalow hotel; with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It was
the ddition of the comforts and'
conveniences of Jasper Park Lodge
to the beauties of Jasper National
Park which caused one noted
American traveller to exclaim: "At
last. I have found the place, where
God and man go fifty-fifty to
produce perfection."

Can You Park Properiy?
(Preiident Greer College of Automotive Engineering, CMeago)
Many motorists with years of experience, admit their inability to
park a car parallel to the curb in a
ttnall space.   It is Just a knack, and
3 the follo-ving I shall try and describe just how it should be done.
In Judging the proper amount of
ijiace necessary for your car, come
to a complete stop outside of the
•est available space between can
forked at the curb.
Look ana see if you have two or
more feet ln front and back of your
Cir.   If so, drive to a position paral-
1 to the car In front of the space.
Taking your steering wheel high
frith your right hand and extending
four left as a signal (the neat end
of your ear will swerve slightly ovt
Ir.to truffle) pull the wheel one-
sUurth turn to the right and reverse
jnur car slowly until It has reached
pie position where the driver's seat
is opposite the rear of the forward
Next, straighten the wheel
Sverse  slowly   until  the  froi
Lur car just clears the rear <
ichlne ahead.
Cut the wheel sharply left a
,i  it  will  go  and  reverse   sit
stitching behind  to  avert  stri,
•ms cat' in the rear.   Sometime.
*y*tl  be   necessary   for  you   to   ku
ruck and forth until finally parallel
■ "ih the curb.   Soon you will understand the tracking  of the wheels,
Vter ****hfeh tfe* Ns'?-;-;- el •futdss
will have disappeared.
The practice of just heading a ca/
into a space, regardless of its slst,
and leaving it there, forcing traffic
to turn out for the rear en-% should
bc stopped.
To get out from a tight n>ce at
ihe curl), reverse your car as tfer us
possible,   Turn the wheels sharp left
far as they will go.   Extend Ux%
!   for signal and start forwa •*
ly.   A little jockeying back arw
