of
I he Time To Get Busy
Willi the .month of March drawing to a close Western Canada makes
rri.c.y I'or that annual renewal of activities characteristic of the country.
YVhil<* all Canada is, broadly speaking, a country of seasonal occupations, this
is especially true ot the Western prairie provinces. In the East manufacturing proceeds throughout the year, but. the greatest period of activity is in the
summer. The men who labor in the lumber mills, in tlie summer, disappear
in the woods during the winter felling the trees to make summer operations
in I He mills possible. But even in the East the coming of Spring means the
beginning of real activity.
Here in the West, with ihe exception of coal mining in Alberta, tlie coming of Spring is the signal not only for the commencement of farm operations,
but for renewed building operations, the carrying forward of municipal works
of all kinds, road building, railway construction���in a word, all those activities to which a stop is put during winter weather.
It means the opening of navigation on Canada's lakes and rivers, the
inauguration of the immigration rush, a veritable Kip Van Wiukle awakening
from the slumber of winter.        _ o ."
And with this great, awakening at hand it behooves the people of Canada
to resolve as individuals and as a nation to make the most of 1924. New
Year's Day may fall on January 1, but Canada's real New Year's comes with
the passing of winter.and its more or less enforced idleness, and the advent
of Spring with all its opportunities and possibilities*.
The year presents itself as'one full ot promise. Business conditions
throughout the Dominion havo been steadily improving. Betterments have
been recorded from month to month for some lime past in Canadian trade
returns, in Bank Clearings, in, railway earnings, in the declining number of
commercial failures, in all those things whereby we measure the material

Not Taking the Responsibility
Reducing Britain's Only
Safeguard
Nations are out of luck when iho
wilful ideas of men contradict, all that
men know of human motives and action. Hero in the United States wo
may blunder and blunder, through. Tho
bill (for national defence) is stiff, but
it can be paid: There are some blunders Great Britain cannot make and
survive. A dockers' strike can make
it hungry. A superior fleet could
starve it into subjection even if there
were not any army behind tho better
navy. Even .Mr. MacDonald, a disarmament man before ho headed the
government, will not lake that responsibility, and it is good for Kng-
land that he will not anil that, even if
he would, he cannot control a majority
to put such a programme over.���Chicago Tribune.        ���

Williams' Pink Pills
Williams' Pink Pills do one
thing, and do it welj. They build up
the blood, increasing the number of
red corpuscles. As this is done the
blood becomes a richer red aud i.s able
to carry more oxygen, fhe great supporter of human life. As lho blood
improves in duality the tissues of the
body are better nourished and the
functions of the body are belter performed. This is the reason Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have been so successful iu the treatment of diseases
duo to poor, thin blood, and it is also
the reason why they are so successful
in building, up strength alter fevers

War   On   Drug   Evil J
Federal Dipnrtment Undertakes
Suppression of Drug Traffic
Since .funo. till!), when the Domin-
iou Government undertook tho suppression of the drug'traflic.on tin extensive scale, the scope of the work
has steadily increased, states P. W.
Cowan, chief of the narcotic division
of tlie department of heal ill. Until
the nations of the world undertook to
co-operaU: in tho stamping our. of the
illicit trading in drugs, no one was
fully aware of the extent to which the
traliie was being carried on. During
the past few years there litis been
more mutual understanding between
counlries in endeavoring to catch the
big dope dealors-Uian over before.
The result of this co-operation between Ihe governments and police of
nations has been that the actual arrests and convictions in Canada have
not increased materially. The federal department' by working witli the
Koyal Canadian Mounted Police has
directed its efforts chiefly to the
shadowing and arresting of the men
���'higher up" who in many cases are
not addicts themselves but merely
direct and carry on the business
negotiations of the illicit trading. The
actual shadowing aud,arresting of addicts and small pedlars has been left
for lhe most part to the various local
police forces. Only in such cases as
may lead fo the conviction of the men
who** are the centre of the big. rings
does the federal department, take au
active part.
In November of this year the opium
committee of the League of Natious
Council will meet to determine, if
possible, the actual quantity of opium
required for legitimate purposes in
the world. It is hoped that this will
lead eventually to restrictions upon
the commercial production. While
there are drastic regulations in some
countries regarding the sale and Importation of narcotics authorities are
often working in the dark because
drugs can be brought into a country
in 'bond under disguises of lawful
manufactured goods and then shipped
lo another country and accordingly it
is. almost impossible to maintain any
effective record of the. drugs-in circulation..;; Canada-is playing an ac-
'tive ;. part' in... the international fight
against.*.the.tvaiik', according . lo Mr.
"Cowan;',-an.l photographs' and finger

Ireland As It Is
���    Discovered  By Doctor
Was  Pioneer in  Introducing  Tobacco
In Europe
..���' Every man who smokes owes a debt
of gratitude to Francisco Fernandas.
The commencement of the use of tobacco by civilized peopfe has been
traced back to its introduction in Europe by that celebrated physician.
Fernandes was sent by King Philip
Second of.Spain to investigate the
products of Mexico. As a result of
his .explorations Francisco Fernandes
took the tobacco, plant to Europe, in
155S, for the first time on record. The
use of tobacco in England dates from
15S6 and the name of Sir. Walter
Raleigh is associated with its introduction there.   ���������
At first the plant was supposed to
possess almost miraculous healing
powers, and fhe poet Spencer called it
"divine tobacco." Millions of people
since' those days have realized that
tobacco i.s "a sweetener" of their lot"
in life and a great ��� equalizer of the
temper. --

Improvement in General Tone of thfl
People Is Noted
No -picture of Irish life at the present time would be true were the improvement in the general tone of tlie
people not noted. ' There Is a. cheerfulness -which did not exist three
months ago. People have begun to
talk again about the ordinary affairs
of life. . The gloom has largely .gone.
Laughter ls more frequent. You can
see the change in the street, in the

Another great Improvement is, that

Eclipse of the Sun
About One Total Eclipse Occurs In
Every Two Years
About one total eclipse of the sun
occurs in every two years, but the
phase of totality is so short���usually
two or three minutes and never as
much as eight minutes���that the aggregate time it can be visible over tho
small sections of the earth shadowed
is only eight days in a century. The
beautiful'and significant phenomena
presented are studied at a greater
cost in effort and money than anything else so fleeting. Prof. S. A.
Mitchell mentions that he has traver-
led more than 40*000 miles to witness
four of these eclipses, and the total
time for scientific observations was
less than eleven minutes.

there was a good attendance. The

special music will be rendered by
the choir and the Beaverdell
quartette.
The Beaverdell quartette party
may go on tour this summer���ancl

the date, else you will miss a treat.
Among those missing from the
Service, on Sunday last, were Miss

in "Vancouver and Mr. and Mrs.
Anderson now on their ranch at
Idaho. Mrs. Mattson was detained at home owing to illness Roland
is indisposed. It' is hoped when
the weather is warmer to have the
pleasure of Mr. and Mrs. J. Sutherland's presence.
Everybody will turn out on
Easter Sunday.
The Bell mine is no longer
isolated, the coming of radio has
made it possible for the residents
to be in touch with the outer
world even when the snow is four

remarked-- the   minister. *"-.   "The.
province, is - moving-, along: sane!

Arrangements are proceeding
apace for the finishing of the fence
around the monument. Tho work
is in the capable hands of Mr.
Harker and just as soon as certain
materials arrive, the work will be
rushed to completion.
The 2-lth of May is to bo celebrated at Ingram Bridge this year
and tbe Rock Creek Womens Institute will have charge of the day.
It is intended that the day shall be
a real "Childrens" Day and there
is likely to be a May Pole and
other attractions aud sports for tlie
children. There may also be
grass hockey, football and baseball
games.
One hour will be set apart during
the day for tho holding of a Memorial Service at the monument.
This will likely be in the hour
following luncheon. All who wish
to bring flowers, to place on the
monument on that occasion are
kindly requested to do so. Ife is
proposed to make this service an
annual affair, a "Decoration Day."

/; It:is often said that.-Weste'r'ners
are such*optimists that they:often
stretch -the/truth.'. At the present-
time.the entire ..province has f entered .'fully' upon,--a/-hew���' era'- of
development' and prosperity: Not
since/the boom days of 71910 have
conditions/been so favorable; But
today there.is 'something, real behind . it all. ff There is; uo boom,
but 7. a steady growth,., which
augurs well,for .'.the;future, of the
youngest of provinces, 'Thahks
to reduced freight rates,, which
have not yet been cut to the
mark set by Premier Oliver,
grain is pouring westward at a
rapid rate.- This, perhaps, has
had more to do with, the revival
of interest and business in the
West than anything else.
