istcr of Justice is now in negotiation j
with the several Provincial Govern-''
ments witli a view to having representations made to thc British Government and Parliament for thc conferring of similar powers upon  Canada.

court of appeal for Canada is the

This does nol mean that Canada will commune together concerning them,

courts can exercise a veto over CV.n-

This is an almost, revolutionary
change hi status to that existing prior
to thc Great War. When, on August
4, 1914, Great Britain declared war on
Germany, Canada, in common with
the whole British Empire, was automatically at war. The Canadian Parliament did not make a declaration of
war; it merely took official cognisance of thc fact that a slate of war
existed. It remained, however, for
the Canadian Parliament to decide
thc extent of Canada's participation
in thc war.
In future, however, as a full-fledged
member of ihe League of Nations,
Canada""*will havc a voice iu deciding
issues of peace or war. Canada's vote
will count just as effectively as the
vote of Great Britain, France, Italy
or any other country. This means
that, whereas formerly Canada had no
foreign policy, because it had no say
In foreign affairs. It must decide issues  of   peace  or  war  for  itself.
This change in Canada's international status inevitably calls for some
change iri ils position within -the
British'--Empire"'and .:in the relations-
hitherto, existing between this Dominion-and Great .Britain. .There are
certain "anomalies in the present relationship that must be corrected,'but
which iri no.wise weaken the, Empire,
or tend to Canada's, withdrawal therefrom ; cm tlic contrary, such changes
as are necessary should have'thc. effect" of adding strength-to the Empire."

Recognition  of  Quality  of Produce
Grown in Western Canada
/New markets for the potato crop
of Alberta have been opened up by
the shipment of a whole carload of
potatoes consigned from Edmonton
to San Francisco.
This, shipment practically constitutes the first consignment of the
kind ever sent from Edmonton direct
to thc Pacific Coast. While eastern
markets have been plentiful' in . the
past, direct orders for potatoes from
California points have seldom reached this city and the placing of such
a shipment with a city such as San
Francisco is a recognition of the quality of produce grown in thc province.

Every Farmer Should Keep A Strict
Record of All Transactions
To be successful, farming must be
made a business. Failures in farming are as often due to neglecting the
business sidc as to any other cause.
Farmers who neglect to keep exact
records of their receipts and expenditures should ponder thc following
extract from thc February "Teller,"
issued by the Sterling Bank.
"When    asked    recently    by    the
National Association  of.-Credit Men
what in their opinion  was the chief
cause of business failures, 10,000 merchants replied almost to a man: 'Failure to keep books.'   About the same
time    another    investigation    among
6,000 mechants taken at random from
all parts of the country showed that
only  10 pcr cent, kept "records that
told them: What they had in stock,
what profit they were making, what,
thcir expenditure- was for selling, ad- j
vertising and other items of overhead,'
what particular part of their business I
was profitable or unprofitable".

and considered him in the light of a
social equal.
Ruggles's views on class distinction
had, however, undergone a revo'ution
as the result of his-personal experiences. As a shoe clerk in thc service
of the company he had considered
- himself the social equal of anybody,
but now, as a millionaire and a man
honored by-the Padisha of the Ottoman Empire for distinguished gallantry on the field of battle, he had
swung to the other extreme and held
himself to bc but a'parvenu, an upstart, one of lowly origin who had
been raised to fortune by a trick of
fate. : He did not .consider himself to
be inany sense Ruth's equal, nor did
'- he expect the -woild at large to value
him as such. He reflected that both
his mother and father had been fac-
Tory hands, and that he. himself had
first seen thc light of day in a dingy
workman's cottage under thc shadow
of"the'factory walls':

"There was one peculiarity, thc sound

It was present with the light, the

Advice as a Vice
" These are days when you ought
to live with yourself.
Know who you are, what you
are and watch your step.
Be responsible for'yourself and
to yourself.
Polish up your conscience and
listen to what it tells you.
A good, healthy conscience is a
100 per cent, better guide than a
ouija board.
Look to .yourself because the
other fellow ip mighty sick and
tired of volunteer advices.
All during the war tbis other
fellow had to do a lot of things
and then on top of that, along came
a lot of well-meaning people with
loads of advice as to what he ought
to do.
The war is over and there is
some relaxation in the things we
bad to do.
But the giving of advice is still
the most popular; sport among
eager uplifters, who feel the urge
to r"do something for humanity."
They shoot it at mankind ;ln the
mass just like spraying a gardeDj
with a hose.
There is too much advice lying
around loose these days. y--
If you feel the advice bug biting
you, all right,, but write out the
formulas it inspires and then
apply'-them to yourself and keep
them to yourself. .
.. But here we are spilling advice
ourselves. . Well, w^ admit we
know, better,-���Ex. .       .,   - ',
