A Dying Island
Canada s Need.
No. 1���Population
In this, thc first of a scries of articles cleali-ig with some of Canada's outstanding needs as it enters the new year, first attention is
g-iven to the subject of population, because, after all, thc provision
of many other needs and the solution of most national problems
hinges upon the question of people.
Some people may challenge the statement that population is
Canada's most pressing need. Pointing out that there is much unemployment at the present time, some may argue that wc already
have more people than wc can adequately provide for, and that all
efforts at immigration should cease. Others may contend that
more important than population is thc righting of certain social
wrongs and the raising of the moral and religious life of the nation.
There is, of course, room for argument, but thc writer would
S'tibr.ut that before "any country can amount to anything, and before
there can be increased employment and a- high standard fn life,
there must bc an adequate population to make these things possible.
Churches, banks, factories, railways, and so forth, do not make a
country. It is people who make a nation. Without population
any land will remain a wilderness, but with people, and only with,
by and through people can a barren land be made anything else
but barren.
Along with the New Year, Canada gets a new national administration. Among the big problems which- will confront the new
Prime Minster, his cabinet and the new Parliament, not one exceeds
in magnitude and importance the question of largely augmenting
the population of the Dominion by the introduction of the right
class of immigrants.
Fortunately, the whole country is beginning to realize this fact,
and cast and west a growing public demand is being voiced for the
adoption of a wise but vigorous and persistent immigration policy.
The immigration portfolio in the new Government calls for the
biggest, brainiest, most aggressive man, that Mackenzie King can
call to his cabinet. The task confronting such a minister is a hard
one, but the man who tackles it in earnest and keeps at it will not
only make a lasting n-tme for himself, but will confer benefits on
Calllda which cannot be reckoned in dollars and cents alone.
The new Government is pledged to adopt policies and enact
laws designed to bring ;about areturn of prosperity to'this Dominion",
to keep our. factories busy and, generally, to provide ample employment for all'-citizens. 7 The. basic stone, in the .construction; of the
.national'edifice of prosperity is population���people settled on-the
vacant lands of Canada, people tp work in the development pf our
vast, wealth of raw natural resources, people who will create traffic
'for"our national railways, people who will help to divide the load of
taxation and thus make it easier for all."    -. 7 - - -
7 There", are. hundreds of thousands of-'prospective^'emigrants in
the countries of Europe. '   If number alone was all that' counted the
''ta.sk' bi the;new Minister of Immigration .would be7easy. ' But
while. Canada .waiHts-quantity, and can absorb tens pf. thousands of
new -settlers/thcy must be- of :the.right type," men' and women and
children who will prove ail.'asset and not amiability to Canada. " Unfits, whether physically,.mentally or.morally, are not wanted, and
must bc debarred, but the clean, sound/able-bodied should be picked
out and encouraged to'come/and. mere lack of money should riot.be.
..imposed as- a bar to, their admittance. ��� - .   ^ .
7 Canada is a land of opportunity.    .'While the days of. free home-
: -stead lands, which attracted a-great influx of sct'tlers in the first decade of the century, are no longer-available, there are tens of millions of vacant, acres of good ^agricultural land awaiting settlement.
If"will.be the task.of statesmanship and true, nation-building to work'
out a sound policy .whereby these..lands are made available "to Sct'tlers on reasonable terms and some assistance given to such' settlers
to enable theni to establish.homes with"an assurance of success.7 "V

Smuts to bankers and traders and the
people generally. It is the only
sound and sane thing to do. We cannot change world conditions and make

The Aftermath of War
Nations Have Common Enemy to
Fight Against
In a great war the nations involved
fight first against one another. But,
after the war is over, they all have
another war to flglit too. In this
second war they are all on one side;
the enemy is common to all. Whether
they, now squabble or agree among
themselves, whether they keep up
their previous groupings, or all fall
sourly apart, or all help one another
in some sort of tacit confederation,
they all must have it out with War
herself in hex new incarnation as
poverty, misery, disappointment and
disillusion. France with her shattered Budget, we with our gaunt host
of unemployed, Germany with her
almost worthless mark, Belgium with
her sour racial disunion, are all sustaining, at one or another sector of
a common front; the pertinacious attacks of war in her economic aspect,
the great impoverisker, discourager,
and alieantor.���Manchester Guardian.

Statesman   Able  to   See   Because   of
New Treatment
Viscount Grey of Fallodon, who
suffered at one time from an affliction of the eyes which It was feared
would cause total blindness, is to bc
seen now on any day walking brisk-
through London streets without
wearing spectacles and showing no
signs of his old trouble.
Recently the formejr Foreign Secretary paid a visit to an old brick
house in Lower Seymour Street, \V.,
which might bo called a house of
miracles for here he and many other
people suffering from serious ailments have received benefit from a
new system of treatment invented by
Martin Sherwood.
It is understood that Mr. Sherwood
has discovered a method of treatment which has revolutionized former practice and has been efficacious
in cases, hitherto considered incurable, of blindness, deafness, paralysis and other complaints.
Mr. Sherwood, who employs electricity in parts of his treatment, is
anxious to obtain abundant confirmation of the success of his system before he announces its character, as
he is aware that he may be faced
with strong criticism from members
of the regular medical profession.
Viscount Grey has been receiving
treatment from Mr. Sherwood for
about six months. While his eyesight has not yet completely recovered, it is probable that eventually it
will be quite good, and he will have
little difficulty in reading.

Scientists who recently visited the
island believe the land soured. The
growth of tho trees and vegetation
has been so rapid and dense as to exhaust thc humus in the soil.
Another theory Is that the soil rests
on a rock base, and the rootlets of
the plants have come 'into contact
with the brine of Puget Sound to
such an extent that the salt has burned out the plant life. Th�� vapour
is caused by decaying vegetation.
Birds keep away, as insects are few

A Condition Due Entirely to Poor,
Watery Blood
The girl who returns home from
school or from work thoroughly tired
out will be fortunate if she escapes a
physical breakdown, because this getting tired so easily Is probably the
first warning symptom of a thinning
blood that must not be disregarded if
her health is to be preserved. "
When the blood becomes thin and
Impure the patient becomes pale, haggard and angular. She not only tires
out easily but suffers from headaches,
palpitation of the heart, dizzy spells
and a loss of appetite. This condition will go from bad to worse, if
prompt steps are not taken to increa.se>
and enrich the blood supply. To
make the rich, red .blood that brings
the glow of health, no other medicine
can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
If given a fair trial their use brings
rosy cheeks, bright eyes, a good appetite and good spirits. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have made thousands of
pale, languid girls active and strong.
On the first sign of poor, thin blood
mothers should Insist upon their
daughters taking a fair course of
these pills. They will not only restore health, but will save further, doctor bills. ��� -

Members of the Eskimo tribes, who

be extinct during the lifetime of people now living, according to a prophecy made in Toronto by S. Sainsbury,
who spent ten years in the Arctic regions of Baffin's Land and Hudson's
Bay.: He declared the effect of civilization on the Eskimo was appalling,
their health and stamina breaking
down completely. The chief'cause of
their physical deterioration is the in-!
I. Elijah's Message to Ahab (v. 1).
This was a startling, message, for

Have you ever taken marketing
seriously? Of course every woman
who keeps house has to buy provisions. But too many women run
into the nearest store at the last moment and buy anything at all for the
meal. This is the most expensive
way of doing one's marketing.
Much time and labor and anxiety
are saved if the meals are planned
on paper for at least a few days
ahead. Then one knows just what
shall be needed. Potatoes, rice,
winter vegetables, canned goods
and things that do not spoil easily
may be purchased at one time and
then set aside. Fish when it is
fresh spoils easily and it is best to
shop for this at the last moment
or if it is purchased in advance, it
must be covered with 0 sufficient
cracked ice to keep it.
But In ��� marketing' for anything
it is best to go to the store yourself. Select for yourself the article
you desire to purchase and inquire
Its price. Allow yourself sufficient
time to visit other stores and inquire the price of a similar article.
It. is only by careful comparison of
quality and weight or measure and
price that we may know which
shop is really the cheaper.

Canadian Forest Tree Seeds
A Hopeful Sign In Regard to Forest
During the season of 1920, the work
of collecting the cones of coniferous
trees for reforestation purposes went
on in practically all the provinces.
The work was, perhaps, most vigorously pressed in the west where the
Dominion Forestry Branch collects
seed for its own forest nurseries and
for the Forestry Commission of Great
Britain, but, to a greater or less extent, it was done ln all the provinces,
either by government or private Individuals. This is a hopeful sign in
regard to forest conservation.

place (v. 9).     Zarephath was at the
west side of Palestine, near the Mediterranean Sea, in Gentile territory, in
order, to   reach   this place Elijah had
to cross the country from the Jordan
to the sea.     Zarephath was only a
few miles from the home of Jezebel's
father.     This, no doubt, was. a trial
to Elijah.     (2) Sustained by a "widow
(vv. 10-12).     VBring a little water and
a .morsel  of  bread," was the request
which he made of the widow.     This,
no   doubt,   was   a   great trial to her,
but God.had touched her   heart   and
stirred up faith In her.     Her reply reveals: her deep distress. ,   (3) Elijah's
reply (v. 13).   This.made plain to her
that It was a1 case of- mutual Interest
to do as the Prophet said.   " The barrel of meal shall-not waste; neither
shall the cruse of oil fall."     (4) The
widow's.obedience (v. 15).     "She did
according to the sayings of Elijah; and
she and her house did eat many days."

Public Service
In tlio very near future our
citizens will be called upon to
select men who will be entrusted
with our local government and the
control of the education of our
young people, "and we consider
uhat ft few words upon this large
subject of Public Service may not
be oat of place at this time.
We state it as a fact, and  if you
will   be frank  with  yourself you
will agree, that  the public  is  frequently lacking in sympathy for its
servants,   and we suggest that the
direct result of  this  condition is
the keeping apart of  the governed
and the governing to the  end that
the people usually see no  good  in
anything  which   may  be  done on
their behalf.    In fact it becomes a
cause for some  wonder as  to  just
why men oft'ei'vthemselves for pub-

The Home Circle
The life of the world is strenuous, and the door of the
home should shut out the storms and stress but should
not shut out new and inspiring influences. It should stand
wide in hospitable welcome to 'friends.'. The home life
that is narrow aud selfish is dull and enervatiner.
The first word a child titters is apt to be ''Mother"
and thc old man in his dying- dream calls "Mother!"
mother!'' It matters not whether she was brought up in
the surroundings of a city and in affluent home, and was
dressed appropriately with reference to the demands of
modern life, or whether she wore tlie old time cap and
great round spectacles and apron of her own make, and
knit your socks with her own needles, seated by the broad
fireplace, with great black logs ablate on a winter night.
It matters not how many wrinkles crossed and recrossed
her face, or how much her shoulders, stooped with the
burdens of a long life, if you painted a Madonna hers would
be the face. What a gentle hand she had when we were
sick, and what a voice to soothe pain, and was there any
one who could so fill up a room with peace and purity and
light? And what sad a da}-- that was when we came home
and she could greet us not, for her lips were forever still.
We certainly are blessed with an unusual number of
bright little boys in this coiiimunity. Little tots just
starting on life's journey. They stand upon the threshold
of life with foot uplifted aud hand outstretched read}r to
begin the journey, and happy in anticipation of the beautiful and wonderful things they expect to see. To them
all is bright and promising, no thought of evil crosses
their minds; their imagination clothes everything with
rainbowhues. They little think that every rose has its
thorn, every pleasure its corresponding grief. They are
eager to be off. The path is narrow and on either side
are yawning precipices which threaten to engulf them at
every step; numerous and enticing : by-paths seek to lure
them from the narrow 'way that leads them to safety and
honour. Here it is that the counsels.of christian mothers
take root in their hearts, and their saint-like faces will go
before them on their journey, guiding stars whose gleams
cannot be extinguished, no matter how hard the stprms of
temptation.may 'beat'upon them. ' VV
