Give Thornton A. Chance
Cunnilsi's I'iii'.l.um.-ii has been in session at Ottawa for many months but
tho "man in the street" would hr in a real (luundary if lie was asked to state
just whni hits been accomplished in a concrete way ami of a constructive
character lor the upbuilding of iho Domiiiiou through the development of its
ri-sourcuti and the pnuiwliim of its basic industries leading to national pros-
la rity.
Tliere has been oceans of talk. Weary weeks were spent threshing over
oh! straw in the debaie on the Speech from the Throne, ami still moro weary
weeks in unproductive In Ik during the debate on the Itudget. Millions of
itollars havt- been voted for various services. Hut. after all, what has really
been accomplished?
Apart from these things, much time has been ilevol.ee! to discussion of the
Canadian National J.ailway and its management. Admittedly this is a subject deserving of close attention and it is right and proper that-Parliament
should do everything in its power to help place the system on a sound footing
and co-operate with the Government and railway management in strengthening Its position anil hastening thc day -when, instead of constituting a heavy
lira in on the finances of the country, the C.N.U.'will be revenue-producing and
a source of financial strength toX'anada.
But the general trend of the discussions at Ottawa do not appear to havo
that end in view. ...atiier there has been petty and carping criticism of minor
details wliich should find no expression on the floors of Parliament aud wliich
ii should be beneath the dignity of tliat body to even notice.
One of the best acts standing to the'credit of tho present Government was
the securing of the services of Sir Henry Thornton as president of the Canadian National. lie has thrown himself with abounding energy into thc trsk
of consolidating and making a really efficient system out of tlie separate
railway units wliich were turned ovei- to him. Ilu has created a splendid
esprit de corps among tho large staff of employees, has built up the system
in every reaped, and today the C.N.It. is an effective and vigorous competitor
of the C.L'.JU.
Vef Parliament demands the presence at Ottawa of a man of Sir Henry's
standing and carrying such huge responsibilities to answer picayune criticisms regarding pcijy details of management wliich tliu Board of Directors
of the C.l'.f!. would never think oT expecting of President Beatty. The
C.I'.It. can spend a million or more in the construction of a hotel at Lake
Louise in order lo cater to and capture tourist tratlic, and nobody objects but,
on Ihe contrary, applauds theh enterprise. Likewise fhe C.P.Jt. is not criticized when if indulges in extensive advertising campaigns to get business.

Experts Trying to Discover Protection
Against Atmospheric Electricity
A new peril of the air. is revealed in
the testimony given in London at the
inquest on the deatli of Flight Sergeant
Frank Lowry, wlio died while carrying out wireless tests in an aeroplane
over Andover airdrome. The Hying
officer in charge gave evidence that,
after they had been in tho air*for
fii'ieen minutes lie noticed a peculiar
smell aud saw smoke issuing from tho
rear of the cockpit. On investigation
he found that Lowry had collapsed at
the bottom of the cockpit. 'The only
conclusion ho was able to draw as to
the cause of the smoke was that
Lowry must have come in contact
with an electric current in the air
due to atmospheric causes, although
ni:\'L'r in his career had he heard of
anyone beiug killed by atmospheric
electricity, although apparatus was
sometimes damaged. Experts are
now carryiag oui exhaustive tests to
discover if this sinister force has been
responsible for any of tho uuexplained
air crashes and how it is possible to
protect  pilots against it. ""

Miss Ethel Bertha Fagati, of Hamtl-

first woman to graduate from the
University of Alberta.
Before-going to Alberta to take her
course, Miss Fagati was for ten years
engaged in law work in Toronto. For
two years of "this time she was articled, and has a number of clients of
her own. She- found there were many
women who preferred for different
reasons to seek tho advice of a woman
in the matter of investment and she
expects to work np this liuo. of practise. However, .Miss I-Iogan expects
ultimately to go into social service
work. This has been her goal for
several, years. Law training is said
to bo more helpful in this work.

by the Hon. Charles Stewart, minister
of the interior, involving the inimedi-.
,ate establishment of a hundred-ton
pulp mill on Lake Winnipeg. Premier Bracken proposed certain modifications of the proposal which he sent
by letter-to Mr. Stewart.
- Xhe modifications would confine the
selections of the pulpwood to the east
side of'Lalce Winnipeg and limit these,
areas to the amount adenuai.e to maintain a hundred-ton mill.
The proposal wliich Uio^Brackcn
Government has had under consideration was that the -J. D. McArthur interests be allowed to give tip berth
".LA" comprising 1,0S0 square- miles on
tho east side of Lake Winnipeg" and
select tin equivalent area elsewhere in
the province.
It was represented thai, if this concession could be.madf, Mr, McArthur
had. a binding arrangement with the
Spanish River Paper Company that it
would build within it year a paper mill
in tlie province with a capacity, of 100
tons.   .
Had to Keep Hands Bandaged , Cuticura Healed,
" Eczema broke out in a rash and
blisters between my fingers and on
the back's of my hands. The skin
was red and swollen and used to
peel off. It itched and burned badly
and was awfully sore especially
whe*-I put my'hands in water. I
had tp keep my hands bandaged.
"I sent for a free sample of Cuticura Soap and Ointment and it
helped me. I purchased more and
after using one cake of Cuticura
Soap and one box of Cuticura Ointment I was completely healed."

Re-Birth of the Spirit of Adventure in
the Present Generation-.
If some of Canada's early explorers
could but read a letter received by the
natural, resources intelligence service
recently tliey would certainly rub their
eyes in. wonder, and well they might.
\Vhou"'*dh!un'i>iaiu .set out for "tlie- interior of Canada his journey was made
by f canoed aiid -when .Kelsey,' of the
Hudson's Bay Company, first' reached
the Rocky Mountains, and MacKenzie
broke the trail from Hudson Bay to the
Pacific coast, the canoe was their only
means of travel.
Many methods of transportation are
now available to the traveller who
would cross Canada. Palatial railway
trains provide- a daily service, while
even in an emergency the air route
may be followed. Now the journey
is to be attempted by motor car.
Down deep in the make-up ol many
descendants of the early pioneers of
Canada'and' Ihe United Slates thero
feiiil lingers that spirit of adventure
which carried the early explorers onward, and it ilnds its oui lei iu devious
and cxtraordinaary ways. How some
of them are conceived has excited a
great deal of wonder iu the uaturul
resources intelligence service of the
department of the interior, which is
receiving a vast number.of inquiries
for such information. One oi the latest of thos? requests bears evidence
of this re-birth ot the spirit of adventure in a number of the present generation, but, under more modern conditions. The writer says ''a party of
three of us is thinking of making the
attempt next ���minnier ot running an
automobile from Halifax to Vancouver
entirely thiough Dominion territory.
Wo aro aware Ihai Ihis has never b?en
done yet. With the exception or"a
Mnali slretch in the Rockies, all the
diiUcultird st'om to be between Sudbury or Sault Sre. Marie and l-he Manitoba boundary. There are no automobile roads there, I understand. ' We
contemplate working our way through
lumber roads, trsi'K any open {.paces'
and anything else that seems possible." ~
During th" present season there will
bo few places in Canada r< uiaining
of which it can be said that the foot

appreciate thc pleasures��and oxcite-
' ment of breaking new trails or following tho old ones over route., utioxcell-*
ed for scenery or recreation. Tho.
natural resources inielligonce service
of the department-of the interior has
a vast amount of information on the
touring conditions in Canada, whether
of motoring, camping, canoeing, sihh-
iug, or just resting, and United States
and Canadian vacationists are making
good use of this service.
A Worthy Body
Readjustment of Pensions of R.N.W.-
M.P. Members, is Popular Move .
Parliament did" a thing recently
which was creditable to its sense of
justice. It made a favorable readjustment of the-pensions of members
of the North West Mounted Police
force' who had for some .years been"
on the retIredB list aud whose allowances had been fixed when the cost of
living was lower than it is'today. Not
only was -this a just thing' to do, "but
it will command universal approval
throughout the country on sentimental
These men, whose pensions wero adjusted upward, had seen service in the
Mounted Police before settlement had
made the west what il is today. As a
body of policemen, dealing with Indians and those conditions as to lawlessness which have always been inseparable from frontier life, IhS'-Royal
North West*. Mounted Police- has won
world-wide fame. Many of its members had thrilling experiences.
The    authority,   of    the    Mounted
- Police   was  all  but  absolute.      That
I was duo to the uner fearlessness and
| coolness of ihe men who "made up tiie.
I force in its early days.      Tliey were
picked men.      The inviolable rule of
the force was:  ''Never draw a  pistol
to intimidate.     Draw il to sliool; and
always shoot to kill."-    That rule was
so well known in the west thai on bul
a few occasions was ii  necessary ior
a policeman  lo use Iiis rei-olvor.      It

picturesque and honorable body is not

For j ears children have iiuioronily
prattled. "Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

however, the latest information con-

j tor of the Haivard College Obswva-

from S. Poradus, which is said to be
probably the most luiniuous Mar now
known, makes "wonder".a mild term to
employ. It would require tlie radiation from 000,000 stars of Uie luminosity of the Mm, for instance, he declares, to equal I he radial ion from tlii:.

Is  Keeping the  Blood  Pure by
Using Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
.Impure, weak blood is the cause ot
-most ot the troubles that afflict people. This is the cause of the wretched, feeling of langour and laintness,
pains in the back and side, headaches
and breathlessnpss. that afflict woratm
and make her daily life a torture. To
get new health and stn-ngth the blood
must be enriched. What "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do in ca_>es,of this
kind is told by Mis. Augusta^Entery,
Woolford Station, Alta., who says:���
"Living on ihc prairie, and knowing'
lhat ther-^are thousands of women like
myself miles away from a doctor, I
want to tell them what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have done for mo-. After
niy first baby was born I seemed to.
have little energy. I fell weary and
run-down and unable fo do even the
ordinary household duties. *-l_ felt I
needed a tonic and as I had loug seen
I>r. Williams' Pink Pills fulv-rtised I
decided to try them. 1 got a supply
and carefully followed the directions
and before very long the m-stilt was
wonderful. Day by day- 1 regained
my former strength and energy. Tho
pills seemed lo give me a keen appetite and I gained in weight and soon-
was able not only to do" my work
about ihe house, but to help with
many chores on the farm. For this
reason I would advise women, particularly thost* on,the prairie or the farm,
to keep a supply of these pills always
on liand. .One trial will convince you
of Iheir worth. I have recommended
them to many of my friends and
never    have   they    faik'd to produce^
good reritiUs.," -
