Thought For Tke Future
Sojourning ill. ono oi' Western Canada's lake resorts for hi.s firs! vacation
In S'.-\ h al year? a business man _-.pt.-m his lime lu lolling und��T tin? frees ami
tv m c 11; 11 j* Up- wa'.es heal idly en ilu- bunch. Al'ior several strenuous years of
unri'i'.iii .ins wnrh ibis tired busini. :�����; inan wauled nothing hul complete vst
o; body, i.iind and mhiI. And HI.'.' a sensible being he went back to nature for
i>i.u a:, li" lay under tin'; live.; and watched ilie water ho soon became
av,';i!v cf gM'al aciivity .ill about, him. Squirrels and chipmunks ran and
jumped among"!)!" lues and si.rnb.s while lho waier along shore and among
tin: reed- was rippled wiih the swim niing and diving of numerous muskrais.
T!_t._>i.- inii.-i esling Utile animals were not holidaying. They were intensely
busy. idly watching them, ihe tired business man began to study litem
more closely ami found they were one and till engaged in collecting and storing up food for llie whiter, and do ins so systematically and with the greatest
Indus fry.
Tin.- man began to ihiuk. lie realized that nature had endowed his little
wood and water I'riciii'.s villi n sine instinct, which told lliem that although
thu sun shone and warm breezes wero blowing, a time was surely coming
when (lie trees would ho bare of leaves, the ground covered under a mantle of
snow, and the waters locked last under a thick layer of Ice when it would no
longer be possible I'or Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel to collect food, or i'or Mr. Musk-
rat Lo build himself a house.      So they were busy preparing for the future.
And the man, as He watched at fivsl unconsciously, and then deliberately,
began to com pit re his life and aeiivilles during tlio past low years with these
little wild-lii'o creatures. Cod and nature had endowed him with the same
Instincts of preparing for the future, bin lie had also been gifted with the power lo thin le, lu plan, to organize. He had been given a soul which, would live
on after his body was dead. The squirrels and. muskrais were living an absolutely natural life <tr,d would pas;-, on to their offspring their-instincts of
self-preservation and v.hhin a year their young would shift-for themselves.
IJnl what of the mill'.' Looking back on his past year's hard^ work he
realized that in many respects he lived an artificial life whicli did not tend towards maintaining and developing tliat natural physical fitness and strength
of body enjoyed by the animals. ��� He realized that his children could not begin lo shin I'or themselves after the: lapse of a single year. He was impressed with the lac I lhat, unlike these little wild-life animals, he had to prepare
not merely I'or a future consisting- of a few winter months, but he had to
look for ward into llie years and make preparations not only for his own old
age but for his children until they had grown up and could care for themselves.

German Predicts
Bicycle  Aeroplanes!
Results Achieved By Gliders Give
Encouragement to Idea
Aeroplanes lhat- are driven not by
engines but by muscular power, in
much the same way as a bicycle, will
become a realil-y in lhc near future in
ilie opinion of a Gorman scientist. The
discovery that aeroplanes could be
driven by gasoline temporarily halted
experiments in Hying mail-propelled
machines, but Ihe results achieved by
gliders, he declares, give new encouragement to the Idea. The planes will
have to be built extremely light, although at lhe same lime strong enough
to stand the strain, and the legs will
have to be the driving force as the
hands will be necessary for guiding.
The scientist pictures Ihc machine as
bi-pianc. in the centre of wliich the
flier sits, on a structure looking much
like a bicycle, ana drives a propeller
in the rear.
Pursued By Cameramen
Royalty Must Hate the Man Who
Invented Portable Camera ���
The press is in danger of becoming
a public nuisance, because of the scandalous way in which lhe Prince of
Wales has been pursued almost into
his own bathroom by cameramen and
interviewers, "Ocellus" writes in the
weekly review", the Outlook.
"The Prince," ihe writer declares,
"is a public character, but he is entitled to his privacy and to his .private friendships, just as the rest of us
are. This applies also to the King
and Queen and Princess-'Mary, who
can hardly -move outdoors without
finding themselves in the next day's
picture papers. On ollicial functions,'
this is well enough, but when jarivate
visits are concerned, the thing is an
outrage. Royalty is proverbially
long-suffering, but it must hate the
man who invented the portable camera."

Has Hopes
For The World
Earl of Balfour An Ardent Advocate
Of the League
The Earl of Balfour, iii a.recent debate in the House of Lords ".on the
question of disarmament professed
himself as having some hope lor the
The League of Nations had been in
existence, he said, only a very short
time, and yet It had produced a spirit
among nations whicli had not existed
before. This spirit was not merely
an addition of the various frames of
mind of the different foreign ollicos^.
Il was a collective sentiment. lu
some respects it might be powerless
or might run beyond the possibilities
but it undoubtedly was something new
in llie world. _\'o one could seriously
look at what had happened and say it
was tin institution which the world
could readily spare. As the spirit
which -animated lhe League went on
lie saw no reason lo doubt that nations
could come lo see that armaments'
might be diminished. The fear and
jealousy which nations, for historic
reasons, entertained for each other
would, he hoped, less'en in intensity,
I'or if they did not there would be another war greater than the last, in
which civilization would crumble in
the dtist.
lie was -hopeful that the disarmament for which they all longed would
come gradually as the nations realized
that the burden their armaments placed on them was not worth while to
bear. De did not despair of that. He
might, be loo optimistic, but even if lie
were he'still "said that the work of the
League of Nations was a work that
made for peace. It was said that the
League had aspirations which if could
not realize. But it was to be remembered'that the Leiigiie was working
under diflicultles which its authors
never .contemplated.' It was not a
League of all the nations. , Among
the nations that were loft out were
three of the greatest materially, arid
certainly in two cases, spiritually, that
the world possessed. Until they saw
(he League iri its completed form let
them not say that the original scheme
was wrong, and do not let lliem'despair, in face .of what had been accomplished .by .the League in ilsf maimed
stale;- and it would"noi"'yet' produce
a full"harvest of peace. For his-pail
he should 'always, remain' an ��� ardent
and" hopeful advocate of lhe League.
Western Canada Big Winner
World Standard For Butter Produced
In the West
In a recent editorial the Winnipeg
Tribune, writing ou the progress of
dairying in Western Canada stated:
"Creamery products from the western
prairies carried off just about 90 per
cent, of all the prizes in these classes
al. the Canadian National Exhibition in
Toronto.' The Toronto Globe, commenting on the fact gives all credit to
the slrong organization of creameries
built up partly through the efforts of
the western provincial governments.
"There is much truth In its observation. Government control of tho
creamery business in the west, in tho
early stages more particularly, did result in a degree of standardization anil
quality production that was the admiration of visiting experts. As tlio
business goes more and more into
private control, of co-operative character, the standards,are being maintained and in fact improved ��� upon.
���Whenever western dairy products enter into competition willi the products
of other parts of Canada or the world
at large they reflect credit upon the
creameries that produced them. ,
"There is one faetoVthe .Globe overlooks. 1{ 'is the, special quality ot
western grasses. -' U is not altogether I
a result of high manufacturing stand- j
-ards and modern methods that western
butter stands so high.' There is a
quality in the prairie grasses, a something nameless perhaps even to .scientific minds, that gives an indefinable
quality    to . the products    of   these
grasses. That applies "to bee/ cattle
as well as to dairy products. It comes
from the same combination of soil and
clima te that prodtfees' I he finest hard
wheat in the world.V -       '
"The creamery business in the west
is steadily developing and advancing.
When It attains the production possible to' it, together With a higher degree of marketing skill and efficiency,
it will become a world, standard just
as No. .1 IManitob? hard is and it will
growr into a source of great income for
the wesl."

Wembley Exhibition
W A Financial
ing. to advices received by the Bankers' Trust Company of New Vork from
its English .information service;, has
decided 'to provide al once for the
rapid development: of a^clieniical and
physical survey of the coal seams of
Great Britain, to determine the possibility of replacing some :i -t0 million
tons of raw - coal tit present burned
every year in ils natural slate by other
and smokeless fuels obtainable from
coal by carbonization and gasification.
It is pointed out in this connection
that, if coal can be carbonized on a
large scale in such a way as lo yield
a supply of fuel oil I'or the navy and
mercantile marine, and an important
share of-motor spirit for use in motor
cars and aircraft, the balance of foreign trade would be altered in favor ol
Great Britain, while the abatement of
the smoke nuisance in towns and
manufacturing districts owing to the
abandonment of raw coal as a fuel
would have immediate and far-reaching effects upon Hie health and housing of the people.

Golden Text: Thou canst make me

Lesson-: Mark 1.35-45.
Devotional Reading: Psalm 65.1-7.
The Text Explained and Illumined
Seeking Rest, verses 35-37. Tiie
work of healing must always have imposed a heavy st:ain upon Jesus, and
the ministry at Cppernaum must have
left his strength spent. Early iu the
morning, so as not to be held back by
the crowds, He left the city for solitude and communion with God in a
desert place. Again and again we
hear of his renewing His strength by
fellowship with His father. Prayer
is still the secret of power, A pray-"
errullife Js a powerful lire.
Simon Petei and other disciples
followed aud brought this word to
Jesus, "All men.are seeking thee." "I
wonder more and more, especially In
these somber days, how anyone can
get on witliout Christ. If there wero
in our services today the old convert;
ing power; if men and women 'hit the
trail'; if the blind really were brought
to see, if tlie spuilual.y dead became
possessed of eterr.al life���there would
be the old crowding that there was
by Gennesaret's shores. 'What is the
news down at your church?' 'News!'
Oh, well there isn't much in the way
of news. Congregations about as
usual, collections fairly satisfactory,
choir-good, preacher middling.' That
kind of; news will never draw. But
tell the people outside that the wonder-working Jesus is in "that church';
that the, members have a passion for
souls, that dark souls are brought into
the light and hopeless lives are made
straight and .strong; that those who
have drifted.away are all alive again
with the powers of the first love;
that Christ, and h.s touch with-all its
ancient healing powers va re there���tell
them that, and there will be no lack

breeds and types of swine, the
bacon hog represents by far the
most successful effort yet made to

than either cattle or sheep. Despite
this fact, he is often the subject of
much more .abuse than are other
