When the First Trans-Canada Pulled Out
1. The flret Tnmscontlntntal train In 1886.
of today
The fortieth anniversary of the first Trans-Canada
train has recently been celebrated by the Canadian
Pacific Railway. It was the 28th of June 1886 when the
train pulled out of Dalhousie Square Station,_Montreal,
- on its long pilgrimage of 2,290 miles across the Dominion.

today they "are proud of that memorable day in June —
There were people present who were very pessimistic, but
e proud of that memorable day in June —
for it marked the period when the various provinces of
British North America were bound together by a
material bond.
At eight o'clock on that day, passengers filled with the
excitement of the great adventure boarded the train,
which was composed of an engine and ten cars, including
two baggage cars, a mail car, two first class coaches, two
emigrant sleepers, the sleepers "Yokohama" and "Honolulu" and the dining car ' 'Holyrood."
As the news spread that the first transcontinental
train was on its way, little settlements of hardy pioneers
and Indians in all their grandeur, turned out to watch the
"White man's lire waggon" speed along ita newly-laid
shining "right of way".
The old locomotive which pulled the first Atlantic
Express into Port Moody, now Vancouver, lookB quaint
to modern eyes. It burned cordwood, and with its big
smokestack and generous display of polished brasswork,
which shonelike gold, its array of flags and floral decorations it made an imposing spectacle. The engineer of the
train was "Bob Moe", one of the best known railroad
men of that time, and he pulled into Port Moody, B.C.
srfarp on time, six days after it left Montreal.
Today we travel across to Vancouver in 89 hours,
with all the comfort and modern conveniences of this
age and confident of arriving on time.

public certain correspondence with
Premier Stauley Baldwin of Great

for Dominion affair*, tending to
show the relationship between the
late Liberal administration and the
British government.

tbe Conservative press und speakers
are attempting to raise in the present campaign and their endeavor to
involve the constitutional question
with an alleged lack of good will
and cooperation between the late
Liberal administration in Canada

in Great Britain."
Mr. King then quotes a message
dated June 29 last, sent by him to
Premier Baldwin and Rt. Hon. L.
S. Amery, secretary of state for
Dominion affairs, through High
Commissi ner Larkin,
In tbese communications Mr.
King, afterquoting hiB brief statement of resignation made in tbe

"\ wish you would express to bolh
the prime minster and thosecretary
of state for tbe Dominions my deep
appreciation of the very cordial ar d
happy relations which have existed
between us throughout my tenure of
office as prime miniate* of Canada."
Premier Baldwin's reply to High
Commissioner Larkin, dated Jul} 1
last, reads as follows:
"Thank you for your latter of the
29th June, in wbich you Bent me

grateful if you would be so good ua
to thank Mr. Mack-nzie King for
his kind message, whicb Ih ve veiy

Mr. Amery's reply to High Com-
raiaafoner Larkin in pait is as follows':
"I am glad to know that he (Mr.
King), like myself, has appreciated

Necessity the Mother of Invention
The secret of making ends meet, is,
not infrequently, the difference
between Success and Failure. Adaptability to hard Circumstances in
order to study them with a view to
overcoming them, is a mere stepping-
stone to the foot of the born Inventor.
And, however we look at them,
Inventors are "born" as well as
An Inventor has the ability to step
off, into Space as it were, to "take
the plunge" to quote the man in the
street, which more timid, or more
sophisticated folk, lack.
Most Inventions come out of two
desires. A desire to save labor, and
a desire for better service. But an
even more fundamental stage lies
back of these. The period in some
man's life, of Rock-bottom Necessity.
And so there has come down to us
from the Ancients, who were fond of
putting Truths into adages the pithy-
statement that "Necessity is the
Mother of Invention."
The Age *ot Necessity, is therefore
the Age richest in Inventions. The
Inventions of a fundamental order,
those that saved mankind from extinction, rather than those that
spared his strength.
Regarded from this viewpoint what
people more rich in Invention than
the Indian? What people more
capable of "making ends meet"?
What people closer In spirit to the
Secrets of Nature? What people so
able to see possibilities, "a way out"
where no way apparently exists, as
these simple people of the woods,
lakes, rivers, plains and mountains?
From these Fundamentalists, the
Pioneer had at once most to fear and
most to learn. It was this antithesis
which sharpened desire to take-up
the land and hold it against the veritably embodied Spirit of Circumvention, i And it was when the early
pioneers began to appreciate the
cleverness of the Indian and the
Indian began to appreciate the qualities of life as introduced by the new
people, that one began to learn of
the other and to prosper by exchange
of experiences and by exchange of the
inventions for which each stood.
The Indian and the pioneer have
this in common. Both were always
face to face with Necessity. Danger
was clear-cut... everywhere. No
getting away from it. And to some
extent it is interesting to be able to
decipher in most of the primitive
inventions of the Indians, whether
their habitat waa the shores about
the Great Lakes, the Prairies from the
Lakes of the Woods to the foothills
■ot the Rockies, or the Rockies themselves or the littoral of the Pacific, a
certain Something, like an Atmosphere, a curious Fragrance, suggestive of Danger... a bizarre note...
indicative of the presence of the
Binister form or forms which originally
called into existence that particular
I well recall the impressions experienced the first time Isaw our Indian
guide of the French River, drink from
his paddle. We had gone up the
Murdoch and portaged to Crooked
Lake. (A lake that Only last year was
opened up by the Canadian Pacific
Bungalow Camp—above). Nosooner
had we got into the canoe and gone a
few lengths than the guide ceased
Btroking and careened the saddle
blade so that the clean, cool water
dripped as from a clear fountain into
his_ thirsty mouth and throat. No
weight had changed, the canoe still
ranged ahead from the last stroke,
the guide did not change his posture,
there was no sound, his eye still commanded the scene. The action was
bo swift and silent that without
bidding my own eye ranged off to the
wooded bank, searching for the
imaginary foe whose mocassined feet
and wary intuition may have traced
the invasion by the summer camper
of this hitherto undeveloped haunt
of trout.
Thus swiftly did this simple act
recall the time when it was first
practiced. That time in the history
of Canada when the Red man's foes
were so numerous, when the urge of
hunting so keen that even when he
took a drink of water he must never
lose that vigilance which kept him
always on guard.
In itself a mere straw, it holds a
psychological subtlety that in detail
shows us to what necessity and to
what finesse or inventiveness those
who live right down to the elemental
were driven by the combative elemental forces with which they
warred for existence.
We admire these things in ancient
and.distant peoples, but we are given
to overlook them and set little value
by them when they occur at our very
doors as it were.
Canada is particularly rich in
"inventions" of this nature. They
are not here things of the Past but of
the living Present. I saw the Indian
drink from the paddle only last summer. You may see him this.
Adaptation or resourcefulness in
so simple acts are among those primitives, progressive after a fashion. The
next time our guide took a drink of
the cool lake water, he broke the deep
flower of a pitcher plant from a clump
that grew by the bank and made a
drinking-cup of it. Not limited to
one cup you see. And ip the transition from the oar we can feel there
was a transition in poetic fancy. It
was a drink of relaxation... a sip
of nectar from the flower's heart.
And had he been of the Far East we
should have said "See the artistic
development of this Jap" but being
of the West and of the Wilds, it was
wholly unlooked for and evoked more
of surprise than anything else. It
called out on elemental feelings of
lurking danger or watchful foes, but
the pleasing cognizance that Art
is Universal and that some of
the primitive inventions follow the
sweeter paths of fancy, rather than
the ever-present Danger spelled of
the "oar-blade" cup.*---By Victoria
Cow Testing Associations Invaluabk
Aid to Milk Production
Elimination of n-m-pnisstoliiie cowt f""i, milk herds increases nel pro fit,.
Getting more milk from (ewer cows
Is tho aim of the cow testing association. Hundreds ot cases have demonstrated in a most striking manner
lhat the weeding out of non-produc-
tlvo. milk cows and better care for
tho producing members of the milk
herd pay big dividends.
This point was strongly stressed in
an exhibit at the International Dairy-
Exposition held at Indianapolis last
October. An actual instance was
given which disclosed the following
A milk producer had a herd tyt six
milk cows producing 27,000 pounds
of milk annually. He joined a cow
testing association. The flrst step
taken was to weed out the non-productive cows, that is, those cows
yielding insufficient milk to net a
profitable income over and above
feed cost.   i.
The weeding out process left only
\ four cows in the milk herd. But
these remaining cows were fed according to their individual requirements. No sanitary or beneficial
feeding measure was neglected. During stabling months, they were given
plenty of clean bedding; stables were
kept clean; the long hair on flankB
tnd udders were kept clipped. The
cows were brushed or wiped with a
damp cloth before oach milking
Utensils wore sterilized. The stable
was well ventilated and plenty of
clean, pure water was given the cows.
A year from the time the member
joined the association, his records
showed an increase in milk to more
than 28,000 pounds from the four
cows as compared to 27,000 pounds
from six cows prior to this period.
There w'as'more than a corresponding increase in butterfat.
The cow testing association consists of about twenty-six farmers
who co-operate and employ a trained
tester to test their cows for economical production of milk and butterfat.
The testes spends one day a month
on each farm and obtains a complete
record of each cow's milk and butterfat production, feed consumed,
feed cost, growth, and Income, and
income over feed. *
The first cow testing association ln
the United States was that organized
at Newaygo County, Michigan, ln
1005. Since then, there has been a
fairly constant growth until 1925
shows a tally of 7S2 cow testing associations with excellent prospects of
the number doubling within the next
three years.
Spilt Milk Costs Uncle Sam
$77,399,685.00 Annually
1 It takes a herd of fi*"-,-
***"" caws each giving
SlHtO lbs. of.milk yearly
to supply the milk
tvastcd annually in Ihe
a. s.
According to a schedule showing
the division of dairy products, published by tho United States Department of Agriculture, the annual co*l
of wasted milk in our nation would
make a happy pay day for the army
and navy and still leave an appropriation sullieient to build enough
combat planes to satisfy even thc
militant Mitchell.
The amount of milk spilt, soured,
rejected and otherwise wasted annually, is 3,339,986,(TOO pounds. This at
$2.25 per hundred would approximate annually the stupendous
amount of 177,399,685.
However, a cheerful note rings
through this tale of economic loss to
a nation. The same report shows
a 1924 increase of 103 pounds of
milk per cow over 1923 production.
Deducting this from the figure previously given, leaves a loss through
waste of only $13,607,325, a mere
bagatelle, compared with our national debt of more than twenty billions of dollars.
The increased yield per cow is due
to heightened efficiency on the (arm:
and future years promise even
greater increases.
Dairymen have discovered the futility of feeding non-paying members
of their milk herds. They have
learned that losses lurk ln Insanitary
milk production. They have discovered the advantages that lie ln
i .vatting the bacteria that hide in
unclean stables, undipped, un-
> rushed flanks and udders of milk
cows and unsterilized utensils. As
time goes on, the unavoidable waste
cf milk will be more than offset by
i-tclligent feeding, complete sanita-
Uon and more efficient herd management.
