Large Families Going Out of Fashion in^ Young Province
The province of Saskatchewan, although young and still very .much in
the pioneer stage, with a mixed population gathering from all quarters of
the globe and including hundreds of
thousands from Central and Southern Europe, is not doing its duty by
thc nation, according to statician of
the Bureau of Vital Statistics. Large
families are going out of, fashion, he
says, according to his records of
1917 and 1918. Registrations reveal
that in the 21,695 families in the province in Whicli a birth was registered

Light Absorption
The color selected for walls and

reasons, information as to the exact
value of each color to reflect light is
Thc illumination required in a room
depends largely upon the amount of
light absorbed by the walls and other
surfaces. Dark surfaces absorb light,
while light.surfaces reflect a good
proportion of the light back into a
room. If thc source of light is not
changed, the effective illumination
"will vary with thc reflection factors
of the surfaces in thc room. If, on
the other hand, it is- desired to maintain a fixed intensity of illumination,
then the amount of light reflected by
thc walls on which the different colors arc used will bc in the following
percentages of the light used: Enam-

Thc number of milk producers patronising thc creameries in the province^ of_ Saskatchewan increased from
19,700 in 1918 to 26,299 in 4919, or
ovcr 23 percent, acceding to the

Co-Operation and
The Wool Market
Market Expected to be Strengthened
In the Next Two Months
Thc Canadian Wool Growers' Association, a co-operative organization
which ia cvery ycar handling more
and morc of thc wool "clip throughout thc Dominion, handled 4,000,000
pounds of Canada's total of 16,000,000
pounds of wool last ycar. This ycar
it is estimated that at least 6,000,000
pounds will be bold co-operatively and
of this' amount at least 1,500,000
pounds will conic from the province
of Alberta.
"Tliis organization is in every sense
of the word, co-opcralivc, and co-operation is the keynote of all its marketing endeavor," said W. T. J. Tia-
dalc, the assistant manager of tho
association recently while on his tour
through Alberta arranging for tho
handling of the 1920 clip. "Thc wool
market at thc present time is very
/.dull and listless. Wc feci however,
that existing conditions arc temporary
and that the market will improve and
assume a miich stronger tone in the
course of -the - next two or three
months. Consequently, it would appear that this is essentially, a consignment year that co-operation
should bc tricd^as a means of holding
and obtaining full value on this year's
clip. Under the co-operation system
'each individual clip is scientifically
graded by expert graders supplied by
the Dominion department of agriculture."

W. J. Black, chairman, of the sol- (
diers' settlement board' was shown'
a statement madc by E. W. R. Mills,'
regarding a committee of inquiry at
Winnipeg into charges that lands had
been purchased at prices in excess of
thcir value.
He made the- following statement:
"In respect'to all lands referred to
by Mr. Mills, the settlers themselves
applied for the parcels on which they
were located. Each completed a declaration on thc board's form stating
that he had examined the land and
desired its purchase for him at the
pricc which the board afterwards
Thc chairman further staled that
the board from the beginning had
madc the utmost effort to protect the
settlers against thcir own imperfect
knowledge of farm values'. In the
case of Mr. Mills himself, thc board
onc ycar ago, much to his chagrin,
had saved him from the purchase of
a property at three dollars pcr acre
for which hc applied, because ils experts in agriculture declared that he
would bc unable lo makc a living
thereon, and repay thc loan which
was necessary to cover its purchase."
"During thc past twelve months,"
continued Mr. Black, "thc board has
saved settlers in thc province of
Manitoba alone, a total of, approximately $200,000 by securing properties for much less than that that the
settlers had agreed to pay."
Mr. Black said it was premature
to discuss the conclusions of the inquiry before it had been completed.
More Officers Needed
A Plea for Greater Interest in Wolf
Cub and Boy Scout
Boys cvciiywherc are eager just
now to become Wolf Cubs and Boy
Scouts', and there is no doubt that
onc of the reasons of this eagerness
on their part is that thcy desire to
take up public service and makc themselves more useful citizens. There is
no difficulty in getting recruits- for
cither the Wolf Cub or Boy Scout
movement. This is shown by the fact
that whereas in Winnipeg alone in
1915 wc had eight ou ten organizations, wllile today wc havc ovcr 50.
This desire on the part of thc boys
is-only to be realized by men coming
forward who can and ,will train them
as Wolf Cubs and Boy Scouts.
Men and women are urgently needed to deal with the large'number of
Packs and Troops that arc bcing or
could:be raised at-the present moment
and to make certain' of our work going ahead in the future. -Ladies havc
proved that thcy too can be most
valuable officers of the Wolf Cub
Most men and women arc more or
less diffident about taking, up thc duties of Wolf Cub or Boy Scout Officers because they fear that they must
themselves be informed in all thc details of Cubbing or Scouting and capable of doing every kind o'f outdoor
and backwood work, but wc would
assure them that this is all- needless
alarm. What is wanted arc men and
women who will oiganize Troops and
Packs ancl" give the ambition to the
-boys"to do thcir~work~with keenness;
Thc experience of the average Wolf
Cub or Boy Scout officer is (hat' the
first two or three months are the most
trying, that is, until thcy havc got to
know, not so much the details of
thc work, as llic physical, mental and
spiritual make-up of their boys. It
is true that our' officers arc devoting
a great deal of time and thought to
their work. It is also Iruc that thcy
arc doing  so from sheer lovc of it.,
Outsiders arc surprised when thcy
know "of thc work of Cub and Scout
officers and the time they give to it,
but if thcy could experience the enthusiasm with which thcy work and
could realize thc attraction about the
work which leads-thcm on to give up
everything" else for it. their surprise
could not exist.
.The tangible scward of thc Wolf
Cub or Scout"officer is not 'great.
There is no remuneration for dohrg
this work, but thcy havc the satisfaction of knowing that_ thcy havc done
their duty for their country and' for
its greatest asset���ils future men ���
and. this to thcin is a greater satisfaction than thcy could get in many
other pursuits in life. Officers arc
keen to welcome others to share in
thcir enthusiasm for this .most attractive-, work on-behalf of our country
aud its  future  citizens.

Cause of War
"For thc present, all we can do is

Grey in a speech in which he reiterated his regret at America's failure
to join the League of Nations.
"It is certain that the United States
will in thc future do its best to prevent war. Therefore, if the league is

Lord Grey warned emphatically
against the building up of great armaments which, he said, were among

Could Hardly Walk
Without Resting.
When you go to a physician to be
examined for any heart trouble, one
of thc first questions he asks is: "Are
you shoit of breath?"
Now, when the heart becomes affected there ensues a feeling of a choking sensation, a shortness of breath,
palpitation, throbbing, irregular beating, smothering sensation, dizziness
and a weak, sinking, all-gone feeling
of oppression and anxiety.
On the first sign of the heart becoming weakened or thc nerves unstrung Milburn's Heart and Nerve

They regulate and stimulate the heart,
and strengthen and restore the whole
nerve  system.

with heart trouble. I could hardly
walk from thc house'to the barn without resting, as I used to get so short
of breath. Doctors could not help

Service Between Vancouver and Winnipeg Greatly Improved
By Fast Daily
As the first tangible evidence resulting from closer consolidation of Government controlled lines in Western
Canada, ihc Canadian National Railways makes thc gratifying announcement that, commencing on
June 27th, train service between Winnipeg and Vancouver will bc materially improved by the inauguration of
a new- through, fast, limited, daily
train which will lcave_ Winnipeg at
10,25 p.m., arriving at Saskatoon 12,-
10 p.m., Edmonton U.25 p.m., ami
Vancouver 9 a.m., returning leave
Vancouver 8.00 p.m., Edmonton 8.00
a.m., Saskatoon 7.10 p.m., and Winnipeg 11.00 a.m.
In line with the national ownership
ancl thc importance of these trains,
operating in this service, these two'
trains will bc known both cast 'and
westbound as "The National." The
equipment, in addition to thc usual
mail, baggage and express cars, will
consist of "colonist cars, first-class
coaches, tourist cars, standard sleep*
ing cars, dining cars and compartment
observation cars. Thc passenger
equipment is of thc finest and "evcry
facility has been provided to furnish
thc highest degree of comfort to the
patronsvof-these-trains. ���
A vcry desirable feature of this
service is that trains will operate ovcr
lhc shortest possible route, namely
Giand Trunk Pacific Railways between Winnipeg and Edmonton,
thence Canadian National Railways
between Edmonton and Vancouver.
Thc necessity of establishing such,
a service has been demonstrated owing to the ever increasing popularity
of the route that stops are made at
only thc more important points, for
thc purpose of best serving the hurried business man who desires to
makc "a transcontinental trip in the
shortest possible timc and also ensures thc tourist and plcasurc-scckcr
of an opportunity to visit the Pacific
Coast, or westerners to visit eastern
business1 centres and resorts and return within  thc usual vacation  time.
The desire of lhe management of
these railways is to provide service
that will appeal to all classes, and accommodation has been so provided,
and in addition thereto, this sen-ice
will afford patrons of these trains an
opportunity to sec thc development
in'Wcstcrn Canada not only from an
agricultural but also from "a -scenic

Favorable Crop Reports
Reports Covering the Three Prairie
Provinces Are Most
Crop conditions through the prairie
provinces indicate the best condition
of grain crops at corresponding periods for any year since 1904, which
year's June period has held the record
as ideal, only bcing once approached
in the season of 1912. Reports covering over 200 points in Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta show a
much more encouraging situation
than was the case in 1915, which was
the west's bumper crop year. The
general condition of wheat is 'excel-
ent and in localities where the seeding was late the plants are healthy
and vigorous. Nearly 50 percent of
the reports show the crop to bc a
week 'or 10 days ahead of last year
in development. The reports indicate
95 percent of the oat crop was seeded by thc first week in June. A heavy
seeding of barley is reported and a
marked increase in flax. Most of
this increased acreage is ncw breaking.

Can   Regain   Health   and   Strength
Through Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
# Many women who had a good color
m their girlhood grow pale and colorless when they become wives and
mothers. When the fading coldr in
the cheeks and lips is accompanied
by a loss of brightness in the eyes
and an increasing heaviness in the
step, the cause will be found in the
state of the blood.
Many causes contribute to the condition of the blood known as anaemia.
Overwork in the home, a lack of outdoor exercise, insufficient rest and
sleep, improper diet���these are a few
of them. The important thing is to
restore the blood to normal, to build
il up so that the color will return to
checks and lips, brightness to the eyes
and lightness to the step. Dr. Williams Pink Pills are the great blood
builder and nerve strengthened Thcy
begin with thc vcry first dose, and
through a fair use make ncw blood
that carries strength and health to
every part of the_ body. The appetite
increases, digestion becomes more
perfect aud energy and ambiliou return. The case of Mrs. Wm. McNish,
Abbott Street, Brockviile, proves lhc
value of Dr. Williams Pink Pills in
cases of Ihis kind. Mrs. McNish
says: "I was quite young when I married, and in raising my family I became all run down and a nervous
j wreck. I became so weak that I
could hardly walk across the floor
without sitting down to get my
breath. 1 slept poorly and at times
my nerves would twitch .so that I
could not keep still, and I was in
constant misery. I tried many medicines but thcy did not help me; indeed my condition was growing worse
until one day a friend told mc that
she had been in a somewhat similar
condition and had been cured by Dr.
Williams" Pink Pills," so I decided "to
try this medicine. After the use of
a couple of boxes 1 felt they were
helping mc. My appetite was better
"and I slept better. By the time 1
had used half a dozen boxes I felt
like a new woman, iny health had fully returned and I could do my housework with case. In view of what Dr.
Williams Pink Pills have done for
mc I cannot recommend them too
The best time to begin taking Dr.
Williams Pink Pills is the moment
you feel the least bit out of sorts.

Antelope Travels
A Mile A Minute
Speedometer Made Record When Motor Ran Parallel With
A herd of antelope in the Gobi desert, a motor car overtaking the "yellow cloud against a hill," as the herd
looked in the distance and a speedometer in the motor car, provided an
interesting episode in thc recent expedition of the American Museum of
Natural History, and secured an accurate idea of the actual speed at
which an antelope travels when it
goes in a hurry. As Mr. Roy Chapman Andrews, head of the expedition
has told of-the experiment in the
New York Sun, the speed of an antelope reaches 60 miles an hour for
about two hours and then slows down
to forty or fifty, although how long
the lower pace can be kept up tho
experiment did not try to determine.
Literally, one might, say, the motor
car allowed itself to be paced by the
antelopes, the result being practically
thc same as if the Speedometer designed to record the speed of an antelope and properly attached to one
of the herd; and the experiment was
made possible by the habit of antelopes to try to circle any creature
that pursues them. Instead of turning and running away from the automobile, therefore, the antelopes tried
to circle it and for a long distance thc
car and the herd ran parallel and the
speedometer made its record. Such
in terms of human measurement, is
the speed which serves to protect thc
antelope from his desert enemy, the
wolf; and the automobile one day
timed a single antelope in a 20-mimite
run at the average rate of 40 miles
an hour, when the antelope, seemingly deciding that the car not so
vcry dangerous after all, sat down in
the sand and allowed the car to approach it. But although the creature
had just run something over 13 miles,
it was not at all winded.
