Game Regulations
A recent amendment to the game
act, which does not seem to be generally known, includes in the fur
bearing classification wolverine and
lynx, two animals which up to the
present time have not been classed
under this head. The result is that
these animals came under the close
season regulations, and it is unlawful, to kill or trap them. At
some-points in the province a number of these animals were recently
brought in, and to the disappointment of those who had captured
them, they were confiscated. As
the change is not generally known
it is. not likely prosecutions will be;
pressed, though warnings are being
sent but whenever occasion presents
itself.";;'  ""W-. ���'���- W .-"

Canadian Immigration
Tho twin subjects of emigration and immigration are much in the limelight, at the present time the world over, and parliaments, newspapers, magazines and organizations of many kinds arc closely studying the problems involved, with the result that varying policies are being offered and suggestions
innumerable advanced.
Old world countries with surplus populations and restricted areas and
uroans of providing employment for iheir. ever increasing numbers are anxious to find new* homes overseas for these people where living conditions will
bo better and chances for success in life increased. Insofar as the British
Isles are concerned, coupled with this is the hope, amounting almost lo a determination, that these British subjects shall remain British through emigration lo the overseas dominions, thus adding to the strength' and prosperity
of Lhe Empire at large. The British Government is prepared Lo assisL such

National Economy Campaign
Public Demand For Lower Taxation
Reaching . From Atlantic to
Pacific
Several days ago a movement commenced in Regina which will probably
be Dominion-wide in its effect. Rep-
resenatives of all classes from important parts of the prairie provinc.es met
in conference to devise ways and
means of creating an organized public demand upon the governments" of
this country for an immediate curtailment of wasteful government expenditures. As a result similar conferences will bo held in Eastern Canada
and British Columbia, and it is hoped
that within the next few weelcs lho
whole country will uuite in demonstrating lo all governments that tho
public will not stand for a continuation for the ever Increasing additions
to our tax burdens. A National
.Economy Campaign will be commenced on February J5th, aiul last until
February 29th, and during lhat period
a general protest will bo made through
the pulpit, press and platform, against
the present tax burden. Govememnls
are very considerate of organized
public opinion and it would seem tliat
fhe best "way to convince them that
the time for lower taxation is long
overdue is to demonstrate to them
that the people as a whole will back
Ihcm in any effort tliey may make to
reduce government expenditures.
Corns Between the Toes
Painlessly Removed
A real sure, dependable remedy that
has been lifting out corns for the past
fifty years will surely lift yours out.
Putnam's Corn Extractor is the old reliable corn remedy���it stands the test
of time and never fails, 25c everywhere.
To Scale Mountain
Thinks Will Reach Summit of Mount
. Everest This Year
The summit of Mount Everest will
probably be reached this year, in the
opinion of Dr. T. G. Longstaff, a member of the last expedition. "It all
depends on the w'eatlier.'j, he told an
interviewer. "If "the climbing party
reach the same altitude they did last
lime, (27,000. feet)",beforef'the eve of
the blizzard-season, they should successfully accomplish ihe final " 2,000,
but_af that altitude* a blizkard would

Greatest Treasure Box
Estimated   That  Twenty-Five   Million
Dollars    Will    Be    Taken    From
Ontario Mines This Year
Plon.  Charles  McCrea. minister of
mines for the province ot Ontario, declared in a recent public address at
Windsor, that Northern Ontario was
the "world's  greatest treasure  box."
He estimated that the production of
precious metals ln Northern Ontario
this  year would  total  $25,000,000  in
value.    Referring to the nickel industry Mr. McCrea said that 85 per cent,
of the world's nickel supply was being taken out In the vicinity of Sudbury.      There  was an  inexhaustible
supply of this mineral.   In 1911, when
mining first  began ln Northern  On-
i tinio, $18,000 worth of gold was taken
. out.     Last year more than $22,000,-
��� 000 in gold was produced in the district.

Canada   Now   Greatest   Single   Contributor to World's Wheat
Supply
The farm and fishery products of
Canada, during 1923 showed material
increases over the 1922 figures. The
value of the Dominion's mineral, forest, agricultural and fishing industries
is placed at $2,420,000,000 in unofficial
j government estimates for J.92S. This,
represents an increase of $252,000,-
000 over the values of the previous
yoar. X
Canada is now the greatest single
contributor to the world's-wheat supply with more surplus wheat for export than any other wheat growing
nation, according to statistics compiled by the International institute of
Agriculture in Rome and transmitted
to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
British Columbia's salmon pack this
year will total 1,250,000 cases, according to preliminary -. eslimates of the
provincial Department of Fisheries.
This is an increase of about -iOO.OOO
cases over the 1922 pack, and is the
largest output since 1919.

Canada Is Heaviest Taxed of English-
Speaking Nations
Apologists for governmental extravagance in Canada tell us that our per
capita debt is much lower than that of
cither the United States or Great Britain. The truth, however, is just the
contrary. ' A statement of fhe entire
gross debt of ihc United States, issued recently by its census department, places the combined gross debt
of the Federal Government, _, stales,
counties, "cities and all other civil divisions at ?32,7S6t000f;000-���or $302 per
head. '   ��� *
Now according to the latest available government statistics the. gross
debts of the Dominion, provincial and
municipal governments in Canada
total $5,300,000,000���or ?590 per head.
The cold truth is that in both debt
and taxation.Canada is the worst off
of the English-speaking countries.
And what is still .more1 disturbing
while the other English-speaking
countries keep on getting better, .we
keep on gelling worse.

Airships Untrustworthy

Supersedes the Zeppelin
The Bixmiulo was the latest-German airship completed at. the time of

lo France and put- in commission by
the French Government instead of being, as it should havo been, destroyed.
Long before thc end of the war lhe
Zeppelin had proved itself entirely untrustworthy as a fighting instrument,
We had destroyed" Zeppelins by sea
and over land here and in Eelgium,
and in the last.groat raid over London
not one of th.e. ships employed survived the. weather, conditions to which
thoy were subjected. The practical
German mind, well-aware of the limitation of its o-vii instruments,'"deflected the activities-of .the great airship
factory at Frlcdrlcksluifen'.to the production of largo aeroplanes instead.

Evidence of tho manner in which irrigation is promoting mixed farming
In Southern Alberta is found in statistics compiled for the Vauxhall irrigation district. This is one of the newer Southern Alberta irrigation _ districts. ��� In 1920�� there were only ,27
farms operating in the district; this
had increased in 1923 to 65. The increases iu livestock in these farms in
the sanie period are as follows:
Horses from 152 to 435; cattle from
10 to 975; sheep from none.to 8,-109;
hogs from 11 to 1,171; and poultry

The Farmer Pays
He Pays'As a* Producer and As a
Consumer and Is Vitally Interested In Lower Taxation
II takes a keen eye and an active
mind to trace the process by which a
great proportion of the taxes paid in
Canada eventually conies out bf the
pocket of the farmer; bul it does noi
take long to satisfy ourselves that this
is so. As a general rule taxes aro
paid-by the ultimate consumer..or lho
producer. In some instances the
producer is able to pass the tax on to
the purchaser of his product, but, the
farmer cannot do this because the
value of his product is fixed hy world
conditions and forces over which he
has no control. In addition to being
affected as a producer the farmer also
pays taxes as a consumer���so he gels
it both going and coming.
The farmer is Iherefore vitally interested in governmental expenditures, whether they be ��� federal, provincial or municipal.' The more
these governments spend,, the more
he has to pay. He may "think.that
the levying of certain kinds of taxes,
such as the income tax, relieve him of
part of "his tax. burden; because the
city,-nian-has.to pay. heavily tinder
these taxes." '.But the. fact is clear,
that;wherever possible -the business
man includes such taxes.as a. part of.
his business expense and .'lhe.things
he'sells cost just "that-much more and
:      -      '...-.'.'ot*        - ,
the farmer, who is unable to add-his
faxes to the price of his wheat, pays
a very respectable share, of. the ".income Jaxcs__p_hi.d_._by: businessjcoiicerns;

The Text Explained and Illumined
I. Joshua's Commission, verses 1, 2.
The death of Moses seemed to end
everything. ' Who could tako his
place? Everywhere there was deep-,
est gloom. But Moses 'himself had
appointed a successor ln his minister, or "chief of staff" Joshua, the son
of Nun. The change of leaders was
great, but nothing else was changed;
and event it was not so great as
faint hearts in their sorrow are apt to
think, for tho real Leader lives, and
Moses and. Joshua alike were but the
transmitters of his orders and his
words to Israel (Maclaren). Jehovah
spake unto Joshua. "God's voice is
still' speaking, and the spirit-educated ear will be quick to discern the
old music transposed to a more modern key. God- is perpetually repeating his great affirmations. Moses is
dead, but the march continues" (Gau-
trey). Moses my servant is dead;
now therefore arise and go over this
Jordan,- was the message that Joshua'heard. Do not sit down and give
way to your grief, but arise and carry
Moses's .task; ray work must0 go for-
ward. To go over the Jordan was no
light'command. See the Geographical Background and chapters 2-4 of
Joshua. "Whatever sorrow falls
upon us there is always a next step
which must be taken, and always light
enough to reveal bur immediate duty.
Among the essays of Dr. John'Brown,
the" famous author of 'Rab and his
Friends,' there is a noble and touching account of the father's conduct on
the day when his child died. It was
on the Sabbath, and- he insisted on
preaching as usual, saying as he went
lo the crucitixon' of his pulpit, 'While
the child was yet alive, I fasted and
wept, but now that he is dead, wherefore should I fast? Can I bring him
back again? I shall go fo him, but
he shall 'not return to me.' It may
be, as his son says, that he ought not
to have clone this violence to his eriio-..
tions, and yet one cannot but realize
how much of piety and nobleness was
in the act; it was the resolute taking
of the next step in.i.liat path of ineluctable duly which God had appointed
him. To those who dwell in the
great darkness of bitterest loss, I
would affectionately say, then, remember the next, step, tlie duty to children, the duly to employers, the duly
to.'the world" (Dr. W. J. Dawson).

Keeping Christmas Day In May
Day Was Once Celebrated In Eastern
Church In Spring Time
Christmas Day has not always been
kept on a fixed date. At first it wa3
as much a movable feast as Easter,
and was celebrated by the Eastern
Churches in May.
The date, December 25, was selected in the fourth century* by a commission of theologians. They would
seem to have'boen singularly ill-advised, for this is the height of the rainy-
season in Ju'dea, wliich makes it improbable that shepherds would bo
watching lh.eir flocks by night and
that the stars would be visible.���

A Perfectly True Story
I met an acquaintance of mine
yesterday iri the hotel lobby ancl
as I am a man of leisure, I decided to draw him out by way of
occupying the tedious interval
between breakfast and lunch.
"I suppose you have had some
very peculiar experiences iu your
time," I ventured in order to
show that I was'ready aud waiting.
"That's so," he replied, rolliug
his cigfar round in his mouth,
"but I don't know that I have
ever had a more peculiar one than
what happened to me when I was
travelling in the Old Country."
"How was that?" I enquired.
"Well," he said, "it was this
way; you know the way the
trains are fixed up over. there,
sort of horse boxes. One day I
got into one of those and it was
not until after the train started
that I noticed that I had got
into a non-smoker. I was alone
in the carriage except for an old
lady with an ancient and very
dirty poodle.
I had got my pipe alight already, but out'of politeness I
asked the old dame whether she
objected to smoking.
"I think it's a disgusting
habit," she answered, "and no
gentleman would have dared to
light a pipe without first asking
the'permission, of the- other occupants of the carriage." ff
She was so.needlessly rude that
I lost my.temper and replied with
some heat, "I think it very.probable, madam, .that-thie lady would
have done the.sam'e"-thing-in re-
spectfto her dog,"..and"I; went on
smoking..""*-.

"Madam,""I."replied;with equal;
asperity, "It would, not make the
;slightest.7di#er.enr.eC_if .yqu.were

/'Well,-sir,'' he said, .mopping
his brow at the remembrance, "I

the handle when" I said that; she
leaned forward ;arid- picking "the

During the year which has just
commenced Tho Family Herald
md Weekly Star of Montreal plans
to ran at least ten stories in serial
form. They will be the best obtainable, regardless of coat. In
book form each story would cost,
fehe reader two dollars, which is all
one has to pay for an entire year's
subscription to The Family Herald
and Weekly Star, containing th'e
whole of the ten sphmdid stories*
and a great wealth of most absorbing matter���never before attempted in any paper. Commencing
the new year fehe headlines are
J.eflery Farnol, Booth Tarkington,
Mary Roberts Rineharfe, Gertrude
Atherton and Mary Johnston.
One must bear in miod also that
these exclusive serial stories represent less than one-tenth of all the
reading in this wonderful combination of a farm journal, home magazine and weekly digest of world
news. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star of Montreal is the
most economical journal for the
home, because it satisfies every
member of the family at a Very
low cost.
