that this co-operation helped to a
considerable extent to reduce the

There is still another .way in
which you can co-operate and that
is by avoiding unnecessary" en-
qniries; JoBfr because yb"ur~friend
doesn't receive that gift when yon
thought he would, or neglects to
acknowledge it, is not proof that it
is lost. Perhaps it wasn't posted
���It may still be in some pocket or

sure it was actually posted and
correctly addressed, then remember
that some persons will insist on
bringing their mail to the post
office at the last minute and there
is certain to be at least some congestion and delay. For this
reason, you must allow more than
the usual time for delivery. Lastly, b9 sure that the addressee did
not receive the article���if possible,
get a definite statement covering

and rash in with your enquiry, in

Provincial Party Meeting
,   At Rock Creek
A well attended and enthusiastic
meeting of the Provincial Party
(Rock Creek Local) took place at
the Co-Operative Hall on the afternoon of Wednesday  9th  January.
The main object was to hear the
report of the two delegates to the
Vancouver Convention. Major
Gray was the first speaker.
He said that the thing' that
struck him chiefly was the extraordinary enthusiasm and earnestness of the 320 delegates present
which reached its climax when
Genr. McRae appeared on the
platform. "-He described how on
the first day, the various delegates
formed themselves into committees
agriculture, mining, lumber, labor,
education, etc., and were thus able,
to plan out their own problems
and agree on a common resolution,
ihus^saving a great deal of the
time of the full Convention. The
Major read and explained most of
the resolutions passed and drew
special attention to
(4) To reduce'the ""Bize of the
(5) Restore members pay to
old basis. Reducing members
salaries from $2000 to $1600. Reducing ministers salaries, from
$9500 to $6000. Reducing \prime
ministers salaries from $11000 to
to $7500.
(9) Filing of certified lists of
contributions and amount tub-
scribetl to any political party. ���
(18) By-Elections. Calling of
a by-election within 3 monthB of a
vacancy. -     t
(52) No coalation with" either
of the old parties.
(53) All embracing planks.
Be it resolved that the one all-important policy of "the- Provincial
Party is honest, economical and
efficient government.
The speaker then told his audience with what overwhelming regret trie delegates had heard Genr.
McRae's decision not to accept the
leadership of the party, which was
somewhat tempered by the General's offer to accept the chairmanship of. the executive committee
and run for'a Vancouver seat if so
desired, the question of leadership
being left for members of the Legislature'to settle'after the. next
election. He concluded 'his remarks by thanking the members
for sending him to Vancouver as a
delegate and stated that he had enjoyed one of. the most interesting
experiences of'his life. (Applauee.)
Commander Lewis was the next
speaker andtraced "the "growth-of
the party one year ago, with its 50
delegates at the Vernon Convention, and the present one with its
320 delegates representing 23,000
pledged electors which the,speaker
guaranteed would be 30,000' by the
end of the'year, judging from the
fact that pledge cards were coming
in at over 1000 per week, 520 on
one day during the convention, and
800 cards from the City of Vancouver alone during the week that
the cabinet ministers were "abusing
the General from the safe seclusion
of the Legislature, the only place
they dared abuse him, being immune there from any libel action.
The Commander then described the
Party's efforts to smoke ont the
Government and obtain a Royal
Commission on tbe P. G. E, scan-
dale, Involving both parties, this he
said had been resisted to the bitter
end, but at last a Petition from the
Convention to the Lfe. -Governor
seemed to have had the desired
effect, Mr. Oliver had said that
"his hat was in the ring," "well"
said the Commander, "I have read
pretty-often about, that bluff from
Honest John; but this time I think
the bluff is called and he will hav*
to accompany his hat."
The speaker concluded by quoting Genr. McRaa-s remark, "The
next election will be a fight between Boodle & Good Citizenship"
and impressed upon hie audience
the necessity for each one to do ail
ihey could in th��!r own sphere to
farther the interests of the Party

from the windows and deposited in a
box in the monument room. This box
was brought' to the notice of Mr. F. C.
Eeles, of the Victoria aud Albert Museum, who recently visited the abbey,
with the result that it was sent to the
mines and prospects of Northern On-   museum, where the contents were ex-
tms column the opinion -was expressed that during
ID'Ji tlie people of Canada should vigorously attack tiie problem of debt reduction, and that the effort should include all Governments and individuals.
Many  people have learned by bitter experience just how great a millstone
around their necks, is a burden of debt.     The resulting worry has undermin-   are again in active operation, produc
ing large outputs.'    The natural gas
tario and British Columbia are producing incredible riches unthought of a
comparatively few years ago. The
nickel mines of tlie Sudbury district
cd their health, handicapped their efforts, and made otherwise assured progress impossible. And what is true of individuals is equally true of Governments and nations if people would only fully realize it.
The imperative necessity of boldly facing and tackling the problem of
del)t reduction in Canada is emphasized by a recent newspaper despatch from
Ottawa giviug Canada's net. debt on December 31st last as ?2,415,53S,100, an
increase during the year of $3,0-13.9-19- That is to say, five years after the
close ot the war, Canada's national debt, instead of being reduced, is still
It i>; a favoritt
te excuse for present heavy taxation that we are paying for
the war, and Unit when so many thousands paid with their
pled  bodies
ives and in crip-
md impaired health, we should not object to paying with our
Canadians, almost without exception, are willing and ready, even
to pay for the war. But how can it be said, with a still increasing
debt five years after the w.i.r, we are paying for the war? True, we are pay-
in.,' oyer one hundred millions a year interest on the war debt and some tens
ol millions more annually in-pensions and re-ostablishment of soldiers, and
to that extent are paying for the war. But this is not enough, because the
national burden is not being reduced but is being carried on indefiniteh- into
the future. ���
In other words, despite our heavy taxation, we are not paying one cent
towards reduction of the war debt. On the contrary, further increases jn
the debt only proves that we are not even paying our way under peace conditions. The imposition of taxes lias reached a point where they constitute
a real obstacle to further development and industrial and business expansion
which the Dominion so badly needs. Not additional taxation, therefore, but
drastic reduction in expenditures is called for.
Contrast what Canada is doing with what has already been accomplished
in Great. Britain. . During fhe first fiscal year after the war, 1919-20, Britain's
revenue amounted to ��1,352,000,000 while expenditures totalled ��1,665,000,-
000. Four years later, 1922-23, the revenue was ��914,000,000 and expenditures ��S12,000,000. Thus in four years Britain's revenue declined about
one-third, due in part lo lowering of taxation, but expenditures was cut down
by one-half, a very striking accomplishment. But Britain is not satisfied and
further economics are being introduced.
'  The United States is likewise steadily reducing its war debt and is now
contemplating important reductions in taxation.
It is high time Canada followed the example of these other English-
speaking countries. It has been argued in defence of the new six per cent.
sales tax which went into effect in Canada on January 1, that it is to pay for
the war. If this is true, then why not set aside the proceeds of this lax in a
.special debt redemption fund and not absorb il into the gennera! revenues
of the Dominion? 'It would be paid much more cheerfully if the people of
Canada saw its beneficial effects year by year in a reduction ot the principal
amount of'their war debt.
In  preparing  the  estimates annually, the Finance Minister always Includes an. amount to cover interest charges on the national debt.     The payment of such interest is a first charge ou the revenues of the Dominion.     In
like manner, it would now seem advisable  to include a fairly substantial
amount hv the estimates for payment on account of the principal amount of
Hi- national debt, and to pay.that amount off .without any failure.     Such
.Manual payments on principal would operate lo reduce interest charges, and
.���as interest,;p<irvfficnl.s' were reduced-the amount paid annually on principal

and oil fields of Saskatchewan and Alberta are being exploited, Saskatchewan clays and sodium sulphate deposits are being worked successfully,
as are also the gypsum quarries of
Manitoba. Canada's mineral output
for 1923 js estimated as worth approximately $211,102,000, an increase of 12
per cent, from the previous year. Several new records in production were
made, and it would appear that the
mineral industry of Canada is approaching an era of satisfactory prosperity.
, In secondary industry lhe mines represent a very large share in employment, in railway trallic, in machinery, and in production for which minerals are used as a base. There still
remains, however, ample opportunity
for development, and the next few
years should see many new mines
opening up throughout the length and
breadth of Canada.

Out of Every Three Persons Living in
London One is Country-Born
Somebody has been investigating
the birthplace of residents in London.
He announces that out of every three
persons now living in London proper,
one is country-born; that is, about a
million and a half of the city's population are not "natives." About one
in four were born in the neighboring
counties of Middlesex, Essex, Kent,
and Surrey, Kent having sent us 100,-
000 and Surrey 71,000 persons. There
is a general impression that there arc
as many Scots in London as in Edinburgh, but as a matter of fact London has only 50,000 Scots, as against
5-1,000 Irish. All the British dominions overseas have contributed together aboul 32,000 people; and about
three per cent, of those who live in
the metropolis are foreigners.
Included in the glass are the ermains
of figures of several of the Prophets,
and there is also a quantity of heraldic glass.
About. ��S0 is required to ensure that
the "glory of this glass may be restored to the abbey."

Divorce Made Easy
When a ShadowN^ay Wreck a Married
Life ���
For- some time it has been the
practice to regard the divorce laws
of the United States as affording
easier methods of dissolving marriages that have turned out badly
than those of any other country. But
Germany has now taken the lead. Despite tlie trouble over the descent of
the mark and the occupation of the
Ruhr, the German judges have found
time to set a new standard, and create
a remarkable precedent in divorce. A
Berlin cigarmaker sued for a divorce
from his wife on the ground that she
habitually flirted. with a male ghost
and "thought more of spiritual affairs",, than she did of her home and
family. Divorce granted with custody
of the child. - In a period of transition
and upheaval,"when the whole-national fabric Is shaking,-it must be comforting to those Germans who used to
pride themselves on the solidarity of
the Fatherland and "the sanctity of the
German home-to know-that -today a
shadow may .wreck- a- life.-���Montreal

Leaf Grown for Nicotine to be Used a6
An Insecticide
The growing of tobacco not for
smoking purposes, but as a source of
nicotine for use as an insecticide is
one of the problems upon"which the
U.S. Bureau of Plant Industry is now
busy, Dr. William A. Taylor, chief of
the bureau, told the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in session.
- Tobacco stems and leaf scraps, low
in nicotine, are now the chief sources
of the poison, and the methods of extraction are expensive, while tobacco
as such has a relatively high yield per
acre. The problem then is, according to Dr. Taylor, to produce a sufficiently large yield per acre of tobacco
of average nicotine content or to increase the present content of the drug
to the extent that cultivation of the
crop for this purpose alone would be
Pure nicotine, mixed with some
inert substance, Is now replacing tobacco dust as "an insecticide because
of the greater uniformity and reliability of the product.���Science Service.

"I have suffered for nearly six years

and was not able to stand up straight.
I took 2 boxes of your Dodd's Kidney Pills, and am now completely relieved of my trouble.
What Mr. Tremblay states is allthat
has ever been claimed for Dodd's Kidney Pills���that they are good for sick
kidneys. ,
It is astounding" how some people
will, go on suffering day after day
witli aches and pains, rheumatism and
backache. .They suffer because they
are not aware of the fact that they can
get relief. Strengthen the kidneys,
which aro tlie source of the trouble
and these pains vanish." Dodd's Kidney Pills act directly oh the kidneys.
They heal and strengthen them so that
they do their full work of straining all

Medal Contracts For Royal Mint
Private   Medal   Makers   Complain   of
Injury to Business
The Royal Mint in England is now
competing in medal making with private firms, and taking long standing
contracts from them, says the Daily
Bronze, silver and gold medals for
the Royal Academy will in future be
made at the Mint, and the Mint has
also obtained a contract for a Remembrance Medal, to he sold at the
British Empire Exhibition this year.
The Mint officials claim that the entry into the business will restore the
"almost lost art'of medal making.".
_Voung artists will be encouraged to design medals, and an attempt' is to be
made to restore the popularity of the
portrait ��medal.
Private medal makers, however,
view the new competition with considerable alarm. Mr. John Pinches,
of Albert Embankment, whose firm
have made medals for a hundred
years, writes to the Daily Express:���
"In the last few days the Mint has
accepted an. order for medals that I
have made for years, at a price that
no private person could possibly, quote.
"This Government department,.in its
new and suddenly acquired zeal for
art, may, by destroying private.enterprise, defeat-the object it professes to
have in view." .    .

They Soon Disappear After Using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills
:Every woman,,at times, finds the
routine..of housework irksome. But
how much more difficult are the daily
tasks of the home to the woman who
is. nervous and rundown? She prepares meals for the.family, but has no.
appetite for food. What she does eat
distresses her, headaches and dizziness follow, there is a fluttering of the
heart, and the complexion becomes
pale. In cases of debility of Ihis kind
building up the blood is generally effective. By improving the quality
of the blood and-increasing its quanT
tity, nourishment is carried .��� Ji*^
shattered nerves. The appetite iiT-
variably improves and gradually the
exhausted system is toned upjtnd the
whole "outlook of life Is brightened.
Mrs. Geo. Grant, R.R. No. 1, Markdaln,
Ont., tells for the benefit of others the
great benefit Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
were to her in a rundown condition.
She says:���"If anyone can strongly
recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills I
feel I can. For over four years I had
been.troubled with my nerves, and for
weeks at a time I would suffer terribly with headaches. My blood was
very   thin,   I   had   no appetite, could

reservoir, with creative-strength. Only
in soltitude, or at least in quietude,
can this ever be accomplished. A life
that too early drains its resources, as
Moses had been impelled to drain his,
is emptied before its real work has begun. A restless life, frittered away
on trivial things, can never be anything but a vapid life. Tlie years in
which men and women seem never
to get beyond drudgery,- but go on with
drudgery faithfully, are often those in
which the spirit, is., gathering impetus
for further pushing, on" (Basil King).
In the' course of his duties, Moses
led his. flock to "the back of the wilderness," that is, to the wider part of
the. Peninsula of Sinai. In designating the points of the compass the
Hebrews faced the east; the east was
spoken of ;as in front, or before, arid
the'west as the back, or behind. He
found himself at Horeb, called here
"the mountain of God," the sacred
mountain, either because here God especially manifested Himself to Moses,
or in anticipation of the events recorded later ..in Exodus. "Modern men
and%omen who reckon it unspiritual
to call any place sacred because God
is everywhere, may condemn themselves lo finding him nowhere"
II. Moses's Initiation Into the Fellowship and Purposes of the Holy
and Compassionate God. Characteristic of thc'region where Moses found
himself are the thorny acaciaes, and
from one of them which was aflame
and yet was not consumed, God met
and challenged Moses. "I will turn
aside now, and see this great sight,
why the bush is not burnt," is Moses's
thought. "It is good to come to the
place, of God's presence, howsoever,"
observes Bishop Hall; "God may perhaps speak to thy heart, though thou
come but for novelty."

objected to being called officially 'a

was right.
According to tho "census figures of

- Increasing Burdens
The Ultimate Consumer as Usual Will
Be Called Upon to Pay the
-Shot      ..-.-
Some of the multiplying troubles of
the Dominion- Government have to do
with the increased sales tax. The
government has thus far been pestered
chiefly by organization which disagree as to how the tax is to be applied and collected. The consumers
have yet to be heard from, and their
objections will probably be quite as
vigorous and much more dangerous
to the government.
Because the sales tax will in the
working out mean an additional burden upon the consuming public. The
government, at the last session 'of parliament made vigorous denial that, in
levying a six per cent, lax "at the
source" it was planning to get more
revenue or to add to the public burdens. The idea behind the change
had simply to do with the efficiency in
collection, it claimed.

i tions, which  were no doubt made in

The value of Canada's 1923 grain
crop is estimated by .the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics at $892,572,300.
Of this total approximately $450,000
is credited to the three prairie provinces. It is interesting to note that
while the figures for Manitoba and
Saskatchewan are below those of the
year 1922, those of Alberta are above
by over $45,000,000.
Grain marketed along the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1928 totalled
187,642,224 bushels, an increase-of
33,324,619 bushels over .any similar
period in the railway's history. The
increase in bushels shipped was 18,-

and 83.1 per cent'of the total amount
marketed had been shipped ^y December 3rd.

Grain Movement Over The Canadian Pacific Railway
1 Sept. 1    -   Dec. 12,1923
Clickety-click. clickety-click.. . It is the sound of car
wheels passing over the railroad tracksr and you.
-could stand and listen to the same clickety-click for 44
hours on end, if you were to watch that part of the
magnificent crop of Canada grown in districts served by
the Canadian Pacific railway and moved from the
harvest fields by that company. Imagine, if you can, a
train 8S.1 miles long, or as far as from Winnipeg to the
upper reaches of the Rocky Mountains. That is how
many freight cars there would be. But cars alone cannot
make a train. There are the engines, as well, and the road
has kept in the neighborhood of 670 freight0engines
tugging   grain   trains   east. and   west   day _ and . night
' Ihioughout the season and in addition to these there
are 171 switch engines employed at terminals. The
season, be it understood, is taken as the period from the
opening of Lhe Canadian crop year, Sept. 1 to the official
close of navigation with regard to shipping insurance on
the Great Lakes, which falls Dec. 12.
So much for computation trains. In point of fact
however, the longest train which was made up during the
season-consisted of 125 cars and was approximately 1
mile in length. It was operated from Stoughton to
Areola, Saskatchewan, on October oth. The weight of
the train not including the engine totalled 7,946 tons,
---of this 5,556 tons being freight. The train handled
185,000 bushels_of wheat.
Now during the season, there were 88 days on which
cars could be loaded, for Sundays are excluded. During
those 88 days there were trains operated on an-average
every 50 minutes day and night, trains carrying nothing
but grain mind you, for passenger-traffic and other
freight business were conducted at the same time, and
on uninterrupted schedules too, be it noted. These trains
were on an average 45 cars long.
' la all, from Sept. 1 to Dec. 12, 1923, there v. ere
marketed in districts served by the- Canadian Pacific
Railway more than 200,000,000 bushels of all grains the
largest quantity ever reported since the inception of the
road. Taking the cars loaded as more truly representative
of the activities of the company in the matter of grain
movement, these have been-reported at 116,232 for the
period, representing 169,931,184 bushels. Suppose for
a momejit that all that grain were to be dumped into a
**Ver bed 100 feet wide and five feet deep, and that the
new 'river' were able to flow at an average rate for water,
say a mile an hour, then he who stood on the,bank and
had the patience to watch, might pitch his tent and
picnic for three and one half days before this stream
would be dried up.
A second trip into the land of imagination and one
might put mountains in the background, 'and might
make those mountains up of all the grains kernels which
had been taken from the freight cars engaged in their
transportation. If the grain were heaped up, on acre lot*
of-ground, there might well be three mountains, and each
one of them would tower 5,000. feet into the'heavens.
The. Canadian Pacific.railway station at Lake Louise,
one of the.highest in the Rocky Mountains, is 5,044
feet above sea level. In the three mountains would be
included oats, rye, barley, flax���all the'coarse grains
commonly grown in the Dominionjis well as wheat, but
if the latter were to be sorted out and put into mountains
by itself, supposing there were still to be three mountains,
then each of .these would rise 4,200 feet from the ground.
Banff itself is only 4,500 feet above the sea.
But after aii, wheat is of little use in imaginary rivers
or even mountains, however high or "picturesque they
may be. Let us consider what would happen if all the
wheat were made into flour (leaving coarse grains aside)
and kneaded up and baked into bread. If this were done
there would be approximately 104,700 miles of regulation
size, 16 ounce loaves, if they were placed end to end. This
tremendous string of loaves would stretch back and forth
across Canada, from Montreal -to Vancouver 36 times.
If the loaves wc-rejaid side by side and end to end, they
would form a solid belt across the Dominion' wider than
the height of a eity lamp post. Again if they were piled
in a trans-Canada wall one loaf deep, the height of the
wall would be 12 feet.
"A particularly interesting feature of the grain movement of thc present season according to company
officials is the increase which had been reported in the
amount of grain sent by Canadian Pacific to Vancouver
for export. In all there were 5,532 cars received
representing 8,087,784 bushels, or a very large percentage
of the total exports from Vancouver which aggregated
8,910,966 bushels to the United Kingdom, and 80,300
mostly to South America. Last season for the corresponding period there were 3,548 cars received at ^Vancouver
ancl 4,897,019 bushels exported.   -
