Many  Saskatoon Residents  Planting
Trees and Shrubs This
This season has already seen an unprecedented demand on the part of
the citizens of Saskatoon, for shrubbery and small trees for planting purposes, states thc city gardener. Plans
arc under way in the city to cope
with the greatly increased demand,
and this' year there will be morc than
200,000 trees and shrubs, planted at
thc  city greenery. .
Cuttings which are planted this year
consist of poplar, honeysuckle, lilacs
and willows and judging from results
on a small scale in.the past, this will
soon grow to a matter of primary interest in Saskatoon,-where the lovc
of beautiful homes has grown rapidly
during thc past year or two.
In addition to this thc parks board board,
has purchased large quantities of elm
trees and caraganas, and these will bc
cultivated with special care, as well
as distributed to thc citizens who wish
to purchase. 'They arc bcing handled
at the cost price, the aim of thc board
being to clear expenses and beautify
the city at all events.

"It's a big idea," said he, "but I
don't see why not. Look here, can't

Rugglc's a quizzical smile. "You
seem to. have got the thing pretty well
worked out," said he.
"I've thought about it a lot," Rugglcs answered.. "It ain't so much the
money proposition, because goodness
knows I've got more money,than I
can spend, right now. "It's just thc
idea  of doing  something big."
"Yes," Mr. Downing assented, taking out a fresh cigar, "after all, that's
the main thing."

Mr.  Downing laughed, v'    "Jealous,

making fricjids.
It cannot be said that Rugglcs was
disappointed or disillusioned. Hc was
more perplexed with himself.. to find
that he could sit unabasfied at the tar
blc of the high gods than critical of
the Downing men. .They were, after
all, just about as he had pictured

Ruth, on her part, was not thinking
at all about Roxana. She had dismissed that primitive from her' mind as
easily as onc might forget the unpleasant sensations of being clawed by a
Persian cat. What puzzled and vexed
Ruth was the fact that Ruggles and
her father had ridden back to Le
Tourquet in half an hour more than
the time required to make thc journey and appeared to have talked about nothing but shoes. She began to"
wonder if perhaps Rugglc's long devotion to herself might not be less on
account of her ��� modest attractions
than because she happened to be the
daughter of Richard Prouty Downing
president of thc Walkeasy Shoe Company of America.
So Ruth retired ��� early to stretch
herself in b"d and ponder these problems, and aftcr she had gone, the men
went into the salon-couloir and talked

Appalling Extent of Human Suffering

China is a land of possibilities" undeveloped but unbounded.    She is a
land of mighty  reserve   power,    but
this power, like that of her physical
resources, her  numerous    supply    of
mineral deposits, has remained dormant.    But she is awakening.    "When

Tons of Steel are  Harder to Stop
Than Any Motor Car Made
Careless and thoughtless driving
of motor cars have cost the lives of
many people and millions of dollars damage since the auto came
into general use   in   the   United
States and Canada.    The railroads
of both countries have been forced
to pay out large sums of money in
It should ube remembered by all
drivers of motor cars that a train
has to run  on  tracks and that a
motor car has a certain amount of
freedom in this regard.    It should
be remembered that a motor car
can be stopped  within a few feet
while it often takes far more than
a hundred yards for a train to stop.
Always look before crossing a railroad and be sure to approach  the
crossing at a speed such that allows
you perfect control of your machine.
The  growing   list   of efatalities
from motor cars is alarming.    In
the United States it has reached
such a stage that the public is crying out   against   it,and   in some
cities some novel plan of punishment have been put in force.    In
. Chicago speeders are sentenced to
make, a   slow   trip   through   the
morgue under the guidance of a
deputy -coroner.     In  Youngstoh,
Ohio,  speeders  are  sentenced   to
hold watch beBide the dead body
of their victim or afe the hospital
. bedside of the injured victim. New
York  City  makes the speeders go
through.practically .the same . procedure on arrest Ifehat they would
the most daring criminal.    Phpto-
: graphs and finger prints are taken
.and. a  "rogues"  gallery is maintained. .���".-_ . ....      .   . .
Grand Jury Report
St. Louis gives a splendid  example of how serious tbe public are
considering this question.    In that
city a grand jury was.in session
:���  for four months and ;; two-thirds of
a lengthy report submitted deal*
/'.with' recommendations for the safe-
1 ;ty of the citizens of; the city. -"/..���-'
Undoubtedly much of these facts
.bear on accidents, on streets of the
������.- different   ci ties,., nevertheless,., it
vi shows how. public.opinion is sha'pr
/ ing in.the United States in regard
-   to:careless drivers. /.There   is no
. reason in the  world why. a driver
: of a motor caircanDOfe proceed along
a city street or a country road with
full control! of his machine;. -JLato-

hardly compensates the pedestrian
who persists in martyrdom to establish the legality of his position
and the lawlessness of motorists.
"A pedestrian, haughtily conscious of his right to cross a street,
will saunter casually, though tho
pavement be slippery and though
there is not the slightest assurance
that the approaching motor, tons
of steel, will not resist the brakes
and skid down iipou him. There
is no question here of the pedestrian's right?; the motor may be
clearly at fault, but what principle
has been reinforced after the pedestrian has  been killed or iniured?"
At Railway Crossings
Investigations nave clearly bhown
that motorists will not take proper
precautions at railway crossings,
appearing to act in practically the
same manner as tho pedestrian in
the above quotation. They seem
to forget that the train, thousands
of tons of steel and wood, has perhaps gathered a momentum since
its last stop that would either send
the train tumbling into the ditch,
killing many passengers and doing
thousands of dollars of damage by
the sudden application of brakes,
or that ifc might skid far enough to-
mean the death of all those in the
motor car and tbe destruction of
the car.
A swiftly moving train cannot
stop as quickly as a motor car and
a passenger train carries a heavier
load of human freight than many
motor cars can do. Motorists
should constantly remember this.
They should slow down and look
for approaching traius. A few
minutes at a railway crossing may
save your life. It may save the
lives of many passengers; '���������"'���
An engineer will probably be
made unfit when he hits your
motor car. Statistics prove that
many engineers become physically
unfit for their position through
just puch accidents. It takes away
their nerves.
U.S.A. Statistics
According to the annual repoit
of the National Highway Protective Society, dated Jannary 1, 1918,
there were 455 persons killed by
automobiles on the national highways of New, York state including
New York City, in 1912 ancl 837
persons killed by/aiutomobiles on
these highways in 1917���an increase of 100 per cent, in five
years. The Society's report furnishes proof,., besides railroad experience and.records, that this railroad grade crossing, slaughter was
due to recklessness and  the attes
ting companions,   who almost in
variably accompany  drivers,   and
that   these   are the factors to be
dealt with  vigoriously  and  rigor-
iously if there is to be a cessation
of street and  railway grade crossing, accidents.
,The   alarming increase   in   the
number of accidents  to  motors at
highway crossings with the attending shattering   of   the   nerves of
euginemen and their incapacitation
for the very responsible  duties of
their positions caused   the Illinois
Central Railroad   Company  sometime ago,    to   have   observations
made at certain highway   crossings
on their system for the  purpose of
noting the conduct of persons about
to  cross  their track.    It waB seen
that  seventy-five per cent, of the
people either stopped,   looked  or
listened for approaching trains but
crossed the railway without apparently the slightest thought  for the
safety of either themselves or anyone else.
