procesB, which had been  suggested
to   the- management   by. Nichol
Thompson,   president of the<Vancouver  Chamber   of   Mines,   was
made by S.   G.   Blaylock,. general
manager -of- the  company,   in  an
address before the recent Mining

This product, which he called a
stainless iron. ' Mr, Blaylock Baid
it could. be rolled cold to the
thousandth part of an inch, and
ther^folded like paperl50_ time_s_or
more. , Its corrosive resistance
was higher than any other iron,
and the only difference betwaen it
and wroGght iron was that this
was , probably the purest form of
iron known.

Let Tlie Healtky C
Invent Plane to Swim in Water
Observant men who are willing lo race facts squarely, and who are willing to admit what those facts disclose regardless whether they suppprt or
deny tlicir own preconceived ideas, and support or run counter to their owh
particular and possibly selfish interests, have long since reached the conclusion that a country of Canada's magnitude, and variety and extent of natural
resources in a raw state, must obtain a large increase in population if those
resources are to be developed, if people now resident in Canada-are to secure
some relief from present handicaps and burdens, aud if that measure of prosperity to which the Dominion is entitled is to be achieved.
But when it comes to deciding upon policies by which the needed .additional population is to be secured there is wide divergence of opinion. Jt is
generally admitted that additional population must be obtained through immigration, although there are some few people who would limit immigration
to Ihe few who might come finite unsolicited to this country and who would,
therefore, have the Federal Government discontinue all efforts to obtain
Others, and a fairly large number, too, would restrict all immigration to
people coming from the United States and Great Britain. These good people
are ever fearful that Canada will be swamped by a horde of alien peoples,
speaking: various languages, and bringing-to this country the superstitions,
the hatreds, the national customs and manners of living of their native lands,
with the result that the Canada of the future will he a nation of polyglot
peoples with little in common, but with much that may make for disunion and
Such people overlook, or ignore, one important factor in nation building,
while they greatly exaggerate the extent of the menace they profess to so
greatly fear. ]n the first place, it is important to recognize the fact that in
ihe development of a new country like Canada all kinds and classes of labor
are required. Work cannot be provided for the skilled artizan in factories
until, first ot all, the rough labor or the untutored, unskilled worker has been
brought to bear upon the raw soil and materials with which this country
abounds. Before a factory can give employment to the skilled worker, excavations mu'i be dug, sewers constructed, railways and roads built, trees
felled and sawn into lumber, coal mined, and numerous other odd jobs performed. The average immigrant from the United States and Great Britain
does not. come to Canada to engage in this rough work. He and his family
come with the idea of bettering their condition in life. If called upon t'o do
this rough, heavy work here such immigrant becomes- discouraged and soon
.leaves the country:.-- '      .'     ''_.-.-'.,- X        '       -.  7'  ~;
On the other hand men willing'to do.this kind oPworlc, and looking for
it, can be obtained in other countries and "it-would-amount to national-suicide,
to prohibit their entry-into Canada'through" a mistaken,'-shortsighted idea' of
keeping Canada solely the birthright of English-speaking peoples. .Western
Canada would'.not enjoy the "railway facilities it now-possesses, nor would the
Prairie Provinces boast'of "its present-fine cities and towns .had-it-not-been
for the rougii.-unskilled work "of tiie-very class of people wlio'would now, jf
some good people had .their way; be barred froni entry'into this Dominion.   .
Nor is there any'real danger of Canada being Rootled, with "foreigners"
to such an extent as to jeopardize our British .institution's, ..and Canadian
ideals;- - The.United.States became convinced that.Europeans had-to be kept
"i'rom pouring into.that country as.the land of promise, with" the result-that a
law was passed limiting the number bf people of any race who might, enter
"the States to three per cent, "of the number of such, race already domiciled
there..' in the first year of-the operation of this law-it has been discovered
from the' official-'figures that in the case of one country j_nly did the, full riuni-
- ber eligible to enter come to the. States.     That'eountry was Poland. 7 On tlie
other hand more people left the. States to return to Poland than came from
: there, the net result being a loss .of Polish population to the United States.
.'In like manner more people returned to Italy.and Greece-than came from
those countries, while in the case of all other European countries, fewer immigrants came to tlie States than would have been allowed to enter under
. .the new law.. ,,_ ��� '-���'"-. '   ".-     '    '-.'. '-.."'.        ���;   .

Claim Made that it. Will Safely Ride
Roughest Sea
An airplane that according to its inventors promises to revolutionize flying soon will be submitted to practical
tests, according to information in aviation circles. It is said to be unlike
any ever constructed before and is
really a ship with wings. The utmost secrecy is maintained as to the
details of its construction but it is
said . to mark the beginning of an
aerial navy.
The plane Is so constructed that it
will not only float on calm waters,
but it is claimed will be able to ride
the roughest seas with the same security as an Atlantic liner. It is
claimed that it will be equally airworthy. . The hull is long, light and
slender, without bulkheads. The
elasticity of the hull which will make
this possible is the outcome of many
years' scientific research. The new
machine will be a vast improvement
on the present type of amphibians.
The experimental machine carries
but seven persons but designs for
larger ones have already been made.
The airplane will carry four or six
engines and will be capable? of traveling 100 miles an hour. It will be
equipped with fog horns, -anchors
and riding lights. When not in the
air it. can travel ��� on the water arid
thus accompany a battle fleet under
all conditions.
Machines designed chiefly for commercial service will be able to cross
the Atlantic Ocean in less than forty-
eight hours, it is claimed, carrying a
heavy load.
Queen Alexandra Still Active
Takes Pleasure in Appearing at Many
Public  Functions .
Queen Alexandra, the Queen
Mother, now7 in her 7Sth year, is fax-
more active than most women'of her
age. She might take life easier than
she does, but she evidently is opposed to the idea of being laid on the
shelf. '
She likes to show herself among
the people and she is gratified by the
applause with which her appearance
always is greeted. Undoubtedly it
acts as a sort of psychological tonic
upon her and helps her to feel as
young as she looks.
She crowds many activities into a
day. One day recently she appeared
in public at. the Cart Horse parade for
prizes in Regent's Park; then at a
concert in aid of workshops for disabled soldiers, and finally a\ the Richmond Horse Show. But she���makes
two concessions to advancing years.
She seldom goes out of an evening,
and she goes to bed early.

Plans to Reduce European Armies
Lord Esher Makes Proposal to Reduce
Armies to  Reasonable Limits   .
Plans for the limitation of European
armies were submitted to the Disarmament Commission of the League of
Nations by Lord Esher of England.
Lord Esher's scheme proposed that
the armies be trimmed to the following figures: France, 1S0.000; Poland
and Italy, 120,000; Great Britain,
Greece, Rumania, Jugo-Slavia, Spain
ami Czecho-Slovakia, 90,000; and Bet.
giuin and Switzerland, 60,000.
His proposal was to apportion armies according to a unit plan. He suggested that 30,000 men comprise a
unit, which would bring the armies
of European powers to the figures
named above.
Installation of an international
staff at Geneva to study the plan, and
to oversee its operation if decisive action is taken, was also proposed.
Admiral Segra've, Great Britain,
submitted a proposal that the naval
disarmament treaty be extended to
the nations other than those who attended the Washington arms conference. ���-���������%,

If the Blood is Not Kept Pure Health
Will Break Down
It is useless to tell a hard working
woman to take lire, easily and not-to
worry. To dp so is to ask the almost
impossible. But, at the same time, it
is the duty of every woman to save
her strength to meet any unusual de-
mauds. It is a dutV she owes herself
and family, for her future health may
depend upon it.
To'guard against a complete breakdown in health the blood must be kept
rich, red and pure... No oilier modi-
cine does this so well as Br. Williams'"'
Pink Pills. This medicine strengthens the nerves, restores the appetite
and keeps every organ healthily toned
up. Woitfen cannotsilways'rcsl when

the winner a glass of p"ort.
Lieutenant Carrier was in the air

bc gratified if he could discover a new.
comet. But the learned man said lie
was otherwise and more importantly
employed than looking for comets, lie
added,- however, if they engaged an
assistant he would instruct the-Jattnr
how to find a comet. They agreed,
and a young man named Wells, who

L Daniel the Prime TMinister of the'
Medo-Persian Empire (vv. 1-3).
Sterling worth brought him to the
front and kept him there. The new
king was keen to discern his worth
and to give it recognition.
II. Ah Occasion Sought Against Daniel
(Vv-: 4-9).
l.-The reason for (vr 4). No doubt
that which prompted this effort was
their envy and jealousy. The presence of. envy-always shows Inferiority.'
It is hard for the human he,art to forgive those who excel.
2. Failure of (v. 4). 'Daniel's official record was blameless. They
could not even find an error. Envy
is still in the world. Those who excel in any, line are sure to suffer in
/some way of their excellencies.
^.3. The wicked plot (vv. 5-9). They
trumped up a charge on the ground
of his foreign religion. They were
not careful'about .their method,; just
so their end was attained. When
surrounded by such hatred only the
fear of God can save., Everyone
needs that help daily. In spite of
Daniel's"loyalty the decree was signed
by the king which wouldv put him into
the den of lions.
III. Daniel's Noble Confession0 (vv. 10-
,"    13).  ���
Though Daniel knew that the,wicked decree was signed he knelt before
God as usual. Note the silence of
heroism. Weak men bluster, strong
men lnr.;o little to say.-
.1. He continued his.usual habit (v.
10). Regular habitual prayer is essential to right life. Habit has an
important bearing upon life and especially upon our religious life/ He
knew that the civil law had absolutely
nothing lo do with his religion.- God's
law is first. When the laws of earth
conflict with God's laws there is but
one tiring to do. Laws forbidding to
read the'. Bible, to pray, or to meet
to worship God, have no authority
over men. .   . -     -
2. Daniel reported to the king (vv.
11-23). These wicked men .'-watched
to find out as to whether.Daniel would
pray-before his God, and when they;
found that he continued his worship
of the true God they went lo the king
and reported that Daniel disregarded
his decree.
IV. The Foolish Decree Executed (vv.
."'". 1-1-17).  -.,.,     ' r "
1. The king.displeased with himself
(v. 14). He ..labored till the going
down of tlie sun to. deliver Dariiel/He
was conscious that he had been, entrapped. - .;
2. The ldng- helpless (v. 15). The
proud ruler found that he was a. slave.
3/Daniel cast into tho den of lions
(v.' 16). The kind's parting word to
Daniel was a poor, feeble excuse for
his guilty conscience.    .   .'
'4. The Double Seal (v. 17). This
double act'shows that one rascal will
not trust another. -
V. Daniel. Delivered (vv. 1S-23).
������ 1. Note, the contrast between the
night spent in the lion's den and the
one. in the palace. In the palace there
was no sleep, no , mirth. . Dariieljs
quiet is as a picture of the safety arid
peace which are the portion of those
who trust God and do His. will.
2. The king's question in the morning (v. 20)... X -
3. Daniel's answer (v. 22). God's
angel has done .many wonderful
works. The early Christians despised bonds, stripes and death.
4-. Daniel delivered (v., 23). No
mannerj>fjmrtjwas fqurid._becaiise_.he
believed in his God.
VI. The Doom 0/ His.Accusers (v. 24).
.' They were cast into the den of lions
and. before they, even came to the'.bottom of the den their bones.were broken in pieces. This is an example or
retribute justice. .." Daniel's enemies
go into the same trap, which" they.'p're-
pa red for him. ���:''-��� ..'-'7    .  .-���.'-'..

Greater Proportional Increase in Population in Canada than in the
There has been<a great deal of unnecessary discussion arid regret over
the supposed loss of some two ^millions of our population during the last
decade, in the opinion of the ..Vancouver Province, which has been making an investigation and declares that
"no such migration took place." Immigration into Canada has always
been overstated in the official imports and the rate of natural increase used in the calculation of what
our population should be is much too
high,. , according to the Province.
After examining and comparing the
United States decennial census taken
in 1920 and the Canadian census
taken in 1921, it suggests that we
have reason to cheer up because
there has been a greater proportionate increase in population iri Canada
than in the 'United States during the
ten years and, with one exception,
every Canadian province along the
border has had a greater proportionate increase of population than the
States just across the line. .. The exception is the State of Michigan. The
province of Prince Edward Island lost
population during the decade but so
did'three States of the Union.
The Province does" not deny thai
there has been a large exodus from
Canada; its argument is as to. the
extent of the exodus. An admission
that <*a substantial southward ;move-
ment exists is clearly implied when.it
In the years before the war Canada
was receiving more settlers from the
United States than we were sending
to that country. We were receiving
more each year than the whole loyalist immigration which has stamped
its impression forever on the history,
of this country. It is expected that
the movement''from the United States
to Canada will this year far exceed
the movement from Canada to the
United States.
"The absence of actual statistics
and the consequent'uncertainty as to
the number who have gone from'Canada to settle permanently in the United States makes the subject a very
good one for debate. But "after the
pros and cons have been sufficiently
discussed the moral of the whole matter should be quite plain, namely, that
we should have careful and accurate
statistics kept of the immigration into
the Dominion and also of the exodus
from the Dominion. We should
know the, exact number of each nationality entering the country and
should have a similar classification of
those who are-leaving. The statistical branch at Ottawa could apply itself to no more important work than
that of arranging for securing accurate information as to the annual exodus to the south. These are the
foundation years of the Canadian nation and we should have definite
knowledge of the constituent elements
that are being woven permanently

Humors of Bolshevik Regime
Newspaper     Advertisements      Make
Entertain ing    and     Amusing
���" *   'Reading
Of late the.Soviet newspapers have
been interesting to read, writes a correspondent in the Daily Telegraph.
The advertisements alone are most
entertaining. What with parrots offered for sale at 200,000,000 rubles and
rewards-, for lost cats at 5,000,000, a1
box at the .opera for 20,000,000 and a
typewriter (slightly used), for 1,000,-
000,000, the papers must find their
stocks'of noughts hardly equal to'the
demand..   ���' "V
. Every day.7-there is an average of
twenty .advertisement of passports
and other identification documents
lost or stolen. "Losing" such important documents seems to' have become
quite a habit. ... One wonders what it
meansV, Then there is a large advertisement of a wonderful toilet soap
called the "ioyal."- For a Communist regime this is rather a daring-departure. Another manufacturer of a
"splendid face cream" has the impudence to put the royal arms of Great
Britain at the top of it. Evidently
he thinks he can insure a qjiick sale
through such "patronage."
There are many thieves in Moscow.
Here ��� is 'the <��� Moscow Water Board
plaintively, letting the public know
that eight typewriters were stolen in
one night from its offices. It lays
stress on the "one night." The syndicate of the Soviet Press lets the
public know in a. full-page advertisement that the bloodthirsty capitalist"
trust ruling the printing offices has
decided to raise its tariff.

Poultry Hints-
Prom four to eight inches of
straw or cut corn fodder or hay
should be kept on the floor of tbe
laying house. By covering the
graiu with this litter the birds are
forced to exercise, thus increasing
their appetite, health and vigor.
Feed scratch grain sparingly in
tbe morning and liberally at night.
The birds should be slightly hungry
after they had eaten their break-,
fast. The exact amount of feed
can be ascertained by watching the
actions of the birds. If fed too
much grain in the mornings the
hens will not eat sufficient dry
mash. At night they may be
given all the grain they will eat.
If dry mash is used it is placed
in self feeding hoppers aud kept
continuously before the birds,
allowing them to eat all they want
of it. If preferred, for the heavy
birds, the hopper may be kept
open only from noon until night.
Some farmers discontinue the feeding of mush during the summer
and fall months. This -practice
usually results in a low egg yield
and is very undesirable.
Some prefer to feed a moist mash
either in tplace of or. in addition to
the dry mash. This practice may
give a higher egg yield, but it in-
creases labor and if not fed exactly
right it will cause considerable
trouble. It should be moist and
crumbly rather than wet and sloppy. Just enough should be fed so
that the birds will eat all of it-
within ten or fifteen minutes.
After each feeding the trough
should be cleaned. Enough feeding Bpace should  be provided so
that all hens get sufficient mash.
Moist mash is well suited to small
flocks of hens, especially to tbe-
small back-yard flocks to which
table scraps are fed. However,
the dry mash system is more popular and is more generally used. .
Rome kinds of shell should be
kept before the birds. Some form
of green or succulent food should
be provided. In summer a grass
covered range is highly desirable.
Beets or mangles are often hung
up in the house on loDg nails
driven into the. posts. about ten
inches above the floor.
Use only wholesome foods..
Moldy corn, heated wheat, sour
middlings, musty- bran or any
spoiled feed will surely cause
trouble. If the ration is to be
changed it should be done very

The Gentleman's Defence
Sometimes children evince a dis
concerting ability to close a conversation "and to avert rebuke or
chastisement. -In a school situated
in one of, the suburbs there waa a
' slight disturbance one day among
the smaller pupils.
A small boy bad slapped a little
girl. The' teacher was quick to
rebuke the youngster.
"Jackson1' she said, "no gentleman would strike ��lady."
. The boy replied, "Well, no lady
would tickle a gentleman.'/

Editor The I/edge,
Will you kindly allow me
space in your paper for a few words re
the cattle nuisance.
My first experience with it began eight
years ago, and it is still in vogue. Like
the brook, it goes on forever. This
morning I was awakened by the familiar,
discordant clang of .cow-bells, and knew
that a raid was on. One cow was crunching beneath rny window, others were
piomenading" on the sidewalk, they
seemed to be everywhere. Oue might as
well live in a barn-yard. This went on
for a couple of hours when a rider dashed
up accompanied by a barking dog, and
the round-up began, and I assure you
Mr. Editor, it was not a case of "Tlie
lowing herd winds slowly  o'er the lea."
As the clatter of hoofs and clang of
bells died* away in the distance, I drew a
sigh of relief and turned over hoping to
snatch a little nap. But it was not to be.
A loud bellowing arose, and on looking
out I beheld a miscellaneous herd o*"
young cattle, staring at me with wide,
questioning eyes.
To the owners of such a herd, a fine of
a few dollars is a mere bagatelle. Why
not try something more drastic? If the
owners were confined in close quarters
for a few days it might induce a reflective mood which would bear fruit.
Crunch, crunch, crunch,
All the nice, sweet grass thcy see;
And would that my tongue could utter
The thoughts that arise in me.
