Definite indications of the largest
building year Canada has had in
more than a decade are now shown
by the record of the first six months
of this year. The very large and unusual total of $194,543,600 worth of
new construction for the first half
of the current year and contemplated
new work to the value of $304,598,-
600 forecasts great activity for the
remaining months. During June
contracts awarded totalled $64,186,-
400, an increase over June, 1926, of
63 per cent.
One of the greatest foundations
upon which the Canadian national
spirit rests was laid by the Canadian
Pacific Railway was the conviction
uttered by J. D. Cameron, of Glasgow, in an address before an audience at Pembroke recently. "Not
merely did this railroad act," he
said, "as a bond between all the
provinces of thc Confederation, but
it was, by its conception and final
construction, a greater force than
anything else for the unification of
the scattered provinces."

Purple became associated with kings in the

costly dye of the ancients It was obtained
from two kinds of shells found in the Mediterranean sea. The ancieiits attribute its discovery to tbe Phoenicians and the story is
that it was first discovered by a dog biting a
purple fish. It is stated that in Caesar's time
a pound of Tyrian purple wool cost above
1000 denarii, which is, r ughly speaking.equal
to $217.50. Purple robes were used at an
early date by the Greeks as a mark of dignity
Tyrian purple was introduced into Rome in
the middle of the first century, B.C , and from
that- time it became a luxury. Its use was
checked by imperial decree. A complete robe
of "blatta," the finest kind of purple, was re
served as an imperial privilege, and auy pri

Poems From EasternLands
A study of the original meaning of words is
interesting. For instance when we say
thing is dilapidated, we bring up an image ofi
an ancient temple crumbling to ruin, for the
root meaning of th word is "crmbling stone."
Similarly, the word stunned means thunderstruck, and ardent formerly meant burning.
What a remarkable picture the word scandal
calls up. Its original application was to that
part of a trap on which the bait was placed
and which, when the trap was touched.sprung
up and caught the victim Another odd word
is scruple, which originally meant a little
stone, in weight means twenty grains, aud io
modern use means s mething which hurts or
troubles the conscience.
A stone which paralyze the hand which
holds it has been discovered on   a farm  near
Spencer, S.D., and is creating a sensation
among those wbo have tested its mystejious
qualities, states the Sionx Falls Press.   The
discovery was made by Charles  Curtain, a
young farmer who resides on his father's plnce
two miles south and two miles east of this
place.    Mr. Curtain told The Press last night
that the mysterious qualities of the rock had
beeu proven upon other persons. He found it,
according to his own story,  when he was
working in a cojnfield and discovered a blackbirds pulling up cornstalks.   Attempting to
frighten the birds, he picked up a stone,but the
flew be'ore he could throw.   As he   stood
holding the rock in his hand he became suddenly aware that the arm and hand were paralyzed. He descri es the sensation to that experienced when a tight ba .id has been  placed
aronnd th  arm, cutting off the blood supply.
Transferring the stone to his left hand he experienced the same sensation, and wishing to
reach the house witb his discovery placed the
rock in his pocket. Before he could get there
one of his legs was well on the way to an
afternoon siesta    Others are reported to have
tested fhe rock with similar results. All agree
that the stone is possessed of mysterial quali
ties, and none are able to explain its influence.
According to Mr. Curtain the stone is about
as big as a closed fist, dark grey iu color with
a stripe running through it.   It is porous and
light in  weight.   Many who have viewed it
declare they have never seen other rocks or
stones of the same texture either in South
Dakota or in other  places.   The  theory, .* as
been advanced  that it may  be a fragment
from a meteor thrown off  by some   distant,
burning  world, possessing minerals of a far
more potent quality than any found upen  the
earth.   At any rate, Mr. Curtain   declared
that he will place the stone en   exhibit   in

skeptics  to  test its   miraculous quaiities for

The Woe of Araxes
Meditating by Araxes,
Pacing slowly to and fro, s
Sought I trace* of the grandeur,
Hidden by her turgid flow.
"Turgid are thy waters,  Mother,
As they -beat upon the shore.
Do they offer lamentations
For Armenia evermore?
i     "Gay should, be thy mood, 0 Mother,
As the sturgeons leap in glee;
Ocean's merging still is distant,
Shouldest thou be sad, like me)
"Are thy spume drifts tears, O Mother,
Tears for those that are no more?
Dost tbon haste to pass by, weeping,
This thine own beloved shore?"
Then upr*st on high Araxes,
Flung in air her spumy wave,
And from out her depths maternal
Sonorous her answer gave,
"Why disturb me now, presumptuous.
All my slumbering woe to wake?
Why invade the eternal silence
For a foolish question's sake?
"Know'at not that I am widowed-
Sons and daughters, consort, dead?
Wonldst thcu have bo go rejoicing,
As a bride to nuptial bed?
"Wouldst thou have me decked in eplendor,
To rejoice a atranger'a sight,
While the aliens that haunt me
Bring me loathing, not delight?

Claims me as her own;
Since her mighty doom hath fallen

Heavy lie upon my soul;
Once again I eee the splendor
And I hear again the music roll,

Ringing joyfully on my banks,
And the noise of marts and toilers,
And the tread of serried ranks.
"Bui where, now, are all my people?
Far in exile, homeless, lorn,
While in widow's weeds and hopeless,
Weeping, sit I here and mourn.
"Hear nowl while my sons are absent
Age-long fast I still shall keep; '
Till my children gain deliverance,
Here I watoh and pray and weep."

262 Certificates were awarded to
successful Sleeping and Dining Car
employees of the Canadian Pacific
Railway for passing their examinations in the First Aid Instruction
classes. The extent to which First
Aid instruction among C.P.R. teams
is growing is indicated by the fact
that the McAdam, N.B., team wai
recently awarded the Wallace N-ss-
bitt Trophy, in which competition
Michigan and Maine also lent contestants.
Definite indications of the largest
building year Canada hai had in
moro than a decade are now shown
by the record of the first six months
of this year. The very large and
unusual total of $194,648,600 worth
of new construction for the first
half of the current year and contemplated new work to the value of
{304,598,600 forecasts great activity for the remaining months.
During June contracts awarded

June, 1926, of 63 per cent.

The trophies have been prepared from exact moulds made of exceptional specimens of fish and, with white
metal as a base underneath a dull silver finish, faithful and lifelike facsimiles have resulted. They are displayed to
advantage on a black oak panel.
For French River Bungalow Camp a .% pound small snouth bass has been reproduced; while the trophy for

Two officials whose tenure of
office was practically contemporary
with the existence of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, have recently retired from that company. They are
C. J. Flanagan, auditor of freight

Shearing, auditor of passenger receipts, both were presented with
gold watches suitably engraved,

WHEN you purchase beer in British
Columbia, either in sealed bottles at the
Government Stores, or by the glass or in
open bottles on licensed premises, you receive pure beer.
In the Licensed Premises, or Beer Parlors,
you not only get pure beer, but you are
served It under regulated and orderly conditions. Ileer Parlors are conducted under
the direct supervision of the llritish Columbia Liquor Control Hoard and according to
the rules ond regulations of the board.
GOVERNMENT Inspectors appointed for
thai duly see lhat Beer Parlors are
operated in a strictly sanitary manner. The premises must be kept well ventilated and airy; the beer-drawing apparatus
must he kepi immaculately clean. Storerooms and ice boxes must be sanitary in
every respect, and glasses must be thoroughly washed and dried eaeh time they
are used. All brer must be kept and served
at Ilie correct temperature.
All these regultfiions arc for the protection
of the public, furthermore, all beers furnished liy the Amalgamated Brewers are
Ceriodically subjected to careful analyses

eminent medical authorities, and the people
of British Columbia are to be congratulated

Indiflerencc, ignorance and carelessness,
an the malevolent forces which result
in forest fires and only a thorough
education of the public to the great
need of forest preservation can eradicate
these evils. Until the general public
understands the full significance of the
loss occasioned through forest fires un-
necessary destruction of thousands of
acres of fine timber will continue. The
menace to the financial health of Canada
through forest fires hns not been fully
appreciated by the vast majority of the
people. And Canadians especially
should be vitally concerned in the welfare of their forests.
The various phases of the lumber
industry in Canada represent an invested
capital of approximately five hundred
million dollars. The associated industries give employment to thousands of
men the year through. Further, out
of every five dollars the lumber industries pay back to the country more than
four dollars for the wood, the labor and
the taxes involved in the enterprises.
In the province of Ontario alone,
about 20,000 men are employed in the
bush while 10,000 are employed in pulp
and paper mills. The capital invested
in these industries in Ontario is estimated at about $175,000,000. Tlie organisations employed by thc Ontario
provincial government for forest fire
protection cost $3,000 a day. Yet with
all this forest fires consume twelve times
the amount of lumber which is the life
of these huge Canadian industries. In
the province of Quebec the value of the
lumber out, including pulpwood, exceeds
140,000,000 annually.
In co-operation wilh tho Associated
Advertising Clubs of thc World, the
Montreal Publicity Association has
given generous leadership in drnwing
public attention to the meaning of Forest
Conservation Week, wbich is held
annually in the United Slates and Canada
from April 11) to 25. Scores of public
bodies all over North America have
joined in the effort to stimulate public
interest in tbe forests and means for
their preservation.
When a forest burns everybody loses.
The destruction of a wooded area means
just so much less of a natural heritage
for the generations to como. During
Forest week thc object is to impress this
important fact on the public.
The Canadian Pacific Railway has been
doing all in its power to prevent fires hy
maintainingfirefightinRapparatus of the
most up-to-date pattern. In order to eliminate the possibility of fires heingstarlcd
by passing trains, locomotives on the
Canadian Pacific Kailwuy linos aro examined at the end of each trip and great
care is taken to see that ash pans and
front ends are in perfect condition.
Each spring the right of way is cleared
with care of all scrap and inflammable
Notices dealing with fire prevention
and protection, issued by the C.P.R., the
dominion and provincial governments
and by various nre prevention organizations are-posted in all stations and other
buildings where they will be effective.
The mechanical equipment maintained
by the Company for fire fighting consists
of a number of tank car units and hose,
kept ready for immediate operation ai
convenient points. Each unit consists
of two tank cars each of 7,000 gallon
capacity, equipped with powerful pumps
and about one mile of hose.
The fire-fighting forces maintained by
the Canadian Pacific Railway co-operate
to the fullest extent with the provincial
forces and the other fire-prevention
organizations, and do everything possible
to assist in the righting of fires which an
