After transaction *of routine
business the reports of different
committees were considered. The
inquiries made by the solicitors
of the City Trustee of Vancouver
regarding the electric power
franchise had been satisfactorily
dealt with by the chairman of the
Lighting committee and the City
Clerk and the Council endorsed
the correspondence.
The activities of the Water
committee during the past month
were shown in the detailed report
presented and great credit is due
for the manner in which the
water question was handled during the extreme hot weather and
consequent water shortage. Twin
Creek reservoir proved to be the
safe standby for water supply and
by well-thoughtdut manipulation
of the differeut mains it has been
possible to keep a steady reserve
.of water for emergencies with the
minimum inconvenience to the
public.        "
Aid. Mowat, as chairman of
Streets committee brought forward a strong recommendation
for the erection of silent
policemen at the principal cross
streets. After- a thorough discussion the Council decided to
accept the recommendation and
the work will be put into effect

unanimous in their decision to

Do Something For Canada
Addressing �� gathering at Vancouver iasl nionili, His Excellency Huron
Byr_g-ol' Vimy, Covernor-lioJirriil. said:
"I havo anoiln-r year ii-ul a 1'aif io sidy in Canada, aud when I go somehow
I would lilu' lo IVi-l tlint Canada has trod the path of prosperity and toward
Idealism. ) would lik<�� ui feel thai when 1 go Ihe people will say: 'There
goo* a good Canadian.' I can't tell of the pride il. would'give me lo think 1
had done something tot' Hilr country, for which my pride is unspeakable."
These words came at lhe'conclusion of an address filled with optimism
for the ninny of Canada, but urging .as an essential, national unity and the
I>u(citi�� of Idealism into the minds of the rising generation. "f know'that
Canada is going ahead," declared His Excellency, "and that the spirit that
emanated Irom small pla'-es where the Canadian units formed and spread to
baua'icns nd divisions overseas, slill exists among the Canadian people. But
ve mu.-.i *.������.��� eye to eye, for without unify Canada cannot become a real nation."
It 7!aror P-yug. an Englishman, whose duties necessitate his residence in
Catiada for .wily five years, feels this way about llie Dominion, and is imbued
whit thij dos-ire to do something lor Canada, how much more intensely should"
uaiiM-borii Canadians, and ihose who have chosen Canada by adoption as their
pirmaneut homeland, fuel towards this .Dominion, and how anxious they
should be lr> "do something  for Canada."
And, after all, that is just, what Canada needs, that her sons and daughters should strive to do someihing for her. For" a time a tendency.towards
paternalism swept over -t.hi.t- country when the doctrine-seemed lo find ready
acceptance that it was ilie -business of the Government or State to look after
ihe p.-'oplc nil her than that the people should look after and promote the wei-
fare of the Slate and thereby promote the well-being and advancement of all.
No doubt lhe war was largely responsible for this tendency, because,
while that grim confiicl'-was being waged, it becam.e necessary for the State
to call upon the entire citizenship to fight for ils and their preservation, and
while in lhe army every man's slighlost want was'provided for by Govern-
nie.n and Ids dependents cured ior by Government in his absence. War
made these things necessary, but a continuance of war policies would mean
national bankruptcy, aud Slate paternalism carried io an extreme inevitably
means nuMonnl disintegration.
Fortunately, popular b"Iiof in the efficacy of State aid for this, that and
tho ether thing is on the wane. People-have learned that the Government
is, after all, themselves, and that it is impossible to lift oneself by the boot-
straps. The slogan of today is r.ol "Wait and'sec what the Government will
do." but "Do something yourself, for yourself, and for the counlry."
H  is selfish  doing  for oneself only.      England would'not be the great
nation ii is if Englishmen- had only had a vision of England, and not of the
great .Uritish Empire in tho.making.   ""-The- United Slates would never have

���  The  Power  Of  Lightning
Pint of Gasoline Contains Samo
Energy As Average Lightning -*
��        Bplt Said Scientist
Scientists have a way of talking
about things that gives the impression of calm indifference, to all that
scares and concerns the ordinary man.
A great big streak of lightning that
hurtles through space, opens the sky
up for a strip that looks like a yard
and half wide, and seems to be satisfied only by taking tlie steeple off a
church or knocking the chimney from
the back kitchen���tlie scientist looks
on Quietly takes a pencil and starts to
figure on the back of an envelope.
He announces that it is forceful and
impressive because of ils high voltage,
lu a few more minutes he has it figured out that, it was not worth 78
cents as far as electrical energy is
The late Dr. Steinmetz, before his
death, claimed that the average bolt
of lightning wv.s no greater iu power
than the energy stored up in, a pint of
gasoline. At the rate paid for electric lights in cities with which he was
familiar the average streak of lightning was not wo'-lli ?l; on the basis
of prices paid for power, uot over 20
cents. .i_.
The same authority had it figured
out that a person with a very small
gas engine could make as much electricity for 80 cents worth of gas as
was developed_in an average thunderstorm, e
It's very interesting to have it all
worked out on that basis; it might
even make a timid person resolve uot
to be afraid of any GO-cent electrical
storm, yet there would be the tnental
reservation that.it would be much nicer to make one's own supply of electricity rather than have it shot at him

Is   Gift  Of  An   Indian
Prince  7
Prince Ranjitsinhji has just presented to tho Zoo a male lion-.tiger. As
a lion was the father this remarkable
animal will be known as a "liger," and
as it is a freak and very rare it ought
lo be of great interest to visitors. Owing to the natural distribution of-the
lion and tiger, hybrids are rarely bred
outside menageries, and it is extremely diflicult to get llou and tigress���or
a tiger and lioness���to agree together
in captivity. The Zoo has never
tried the experiment .of putting-lions
and tigers iu the.same cage, and there
is so much natural sympathy and antipathy between Individuals that it is
often diflicult to find suitablcy mates
for the large cats even among their
own kind.
'i'liis particular liger has come from
Prince Itanjltsinhji's estate in India,
where it was bred" and reared, and
where lions are- preserved and often
kept with tigers. These hybrids vary
a great deal tn appearance and temperament, some favoring one parent
more, some the other. The Zoo's
liger is a particularly fine specimen,
being beautifully proportioned, and as
tall, if not taller, than Rajah/the largest of the tigers at the Zoo.
AL a glance he looljs most like a
tiger, for he inherits Iiis walk and tho
shape of his body from his mother.
But the color of his head' and body is
the sandy-brown of thc lion,, with
tiger stripes showing in parts. ' His
head is an odd mixture of both parents.
It is shaped like that of a tiger, but
the eyes are the amber eyes of 'the
lion. On the head and round the
neck are a few- hairs that would like
to" be a mane, and very distinct on this
sandy head are the black and white
striped ears thai, so characterize the
tiger. Thc tai" is shaped like a

Canadian   Highway,From   S'ea'to'Sea

It is. how possible-to cross Canada

two detours into United.Slates, territory. There.is no suitable road from
Sault Ste. Marie to Winnipeg, and" another 'gap must be filled In -British
Columbia before the tourist can keep
on the Cauadian side of the boundary
all the way. A Canadiau highway
from sea to sea is. a thing- of Ihe
fuLure, but' perhaps not of the so "fa-^
distant future as many suppose. . The
traveller by road is incidentally a generous "dislriBulor of money, and if a
few thousand enthusiasts' from the
United States could be induced to run
across Canada every year their spend-
ings "would, make up for the capital

~I. A Festive Occasion,--v.crses 1, 2.
Tlie third day after, which- was "the
day after tomorrow," reckoning from
Nathanael's talk with Jesus, the little company of Master and disciples
reached Cana in Galilee, Nathanael's-
home town. At.a house where Mary
was well known wedding festivities
were being held, and when her Son
Jesus appeared with his followers
they were invited to attend. Jesus
was no ascetic like John the Baptist;
he did not shun the simple joys of
life; he "came eating and drinking,"
and was a welcome guest on many a
joyous occasion. -1
II. The Conversation Between Mary
and Jesus, -verses 3, 4. Marriage
festivities lasted several days, often
from one to two weeks. Toward the
end of the time lho wine began to
give out. owing, it has been inferred,
The ar-^fto the .unexpected arrival- of five or
six men with Jesus. ~ Mary saw the
predicament and turned to Jesus for
help: had lie not always proved helpful in their own home'.' "They have
uo wine," 'She told him. "Mary's
remark suggests two thoughts: (a)
Jesus is the best refuge iu every kind
of need. Mary had been in the habit
of carrying her trouble to her Son. So
she carried this cue. We^cannot do
better than carry our difficulties and
troubles to the same place. There is
no trouble Jesu*. will not help us to
bear. He is" a 'refuge and present
help.' (b) The statement of need is
in Itself a prayer. Mary made no
request, she simply told Jesus of the
difficulty. This Is true prayer.." It is
a prayer of faith. Mary spread out
the need and left It there. She knew
the need itself wps a petition. And
having told the need, she was content
"to let Christ deal with tt as he thought
best".(J. D. Jones).
How Should I Wean My Baby?
This is a serious problem fo many
mothers. Weaning should always be
done gradually, beginning about the
seventh month, giving one or two bottle feedings during the day, increasing
lhe number of bottle'feedings gradual-
-1-y until weaning is accomplished. Borden's Eagle Brand Milk is so like
mother-'s milk in raste and case r of
"digestion that n can be given alter-,
nately with breast milk without causing abrupt weaning.
In this paper Iiom time to lime'you

Theory and Practice
Easier to Suggest Changes Than to
Carry Them Out '
Premier MacDonald of-Great Brila'in
is a frank aud honest mail. He nd-
mlts someVbings that lie and his
party would not,have admitted before
thoy came _iii_to_ power. Speakirig of
his Government's scheme .for creating new .employment for those who
needed h, he said In the House'^of
Commons the other night: "When-we
were without experience, things scented very simple to carry out; but when
we bccairie members of the cabinet
responsible" for .them, they, became
very complicated and diflicult."-.
That Is the whole truth of' all Government. On the, outside the -men
who are shortly comlug into power
believe that they .can bring-about reforms in a jiffy. ' Once in, however,
they realize ' thfc''diiliculty of doing

Where  Divorce  is Cheap
Russians Cali Obtain Them  For $1.50
���" ~ f n-Few-Minutes���; ������
' Soviet Russia offers far more advantages to persons seeking easy ancl
quick divorces than perhaps any place
in thc world. Under a new decree
a divorce can.be had within five minutes at a cost of $1,50, provided both
parties agree to the dissolution of the
marriagt. ties. If, however,.one party
object^ to dissolution, the case muse
be referred to the courts, which" will
decide the question on'its merits.
- Misconduct does not constitute a
valid reason for the annulment of
marital ties, butf, desertion, religious
superstition, exesisive religious piety,
incompatibility, of temperament and
divergence in. political views are held
to be sufficient causes. No Russian
may, obtain, a divorce and re-marry
more than three times within one year.
tn coKsequvnce of the flexibility of
the Soviet civil code covering domestic relations, divorces in tho Moscow
district increased by"43 per cent, dur
ing the first six months of 1924 .as
compared with' 19?2.

Theee has been much controversy as to the advisability of encouraging nature study in our
schools. Many seem to think it so
much time", wasted when the teachers spend and hour or so pointing
out and explaining the beauties of
Mother Nature, to our children.
Yet how much more pleasure will
they find when out walking or,,
picnicing to know the wants and
habits of the various birds, insects,
flowers and trees. It also teaches
them to be kind to. these little
creatures when they  have, an  in
-teresfe and understand, their ways.
How often have we seen,  boys in
. particular, illusing birds, and other,
creatures simply .thru', ignorance,
whereas had they been taught, the
various uses these little people .-of
the air and earth,,they would-have
fa greater respect and love for them.
