Considering what Europe was- like

Suddenly lhe swaying head would
shoot forward, but the mohgoose.-was
alreadyf  beyond ' reach.   '. Then,    a
riial. which was held in "Minneapolis
and St. Paul, Minnesota, from .luneG
to 9, 'Canada took a piominent part.
Hon. Thomas If.- Johnson, ICC, . or
Winnipeg, former attorney.Tgenc-ra I of
Manitoba, it native Scandinavian,,who
was born in-leeland bul came lo Canada with his parents when nine years
old, attended the centennial as the oflicial representative of Canada, having
been appointed by tin. ..Dominion Government. At the'luncheon held there,
which was attended by President

���The Canadian Government inimgra-
tion ollicer at Fargo, IN'.D., "also reports
a 'number ol Canadian families, returning recently; among whom is C. F.
Ko. pnieic, of Fargo, In'.Tj. Mr. Koep-
"nfck went' to the MacLeod district ol
Alberia in 19IS, whure he prospered!
as a farmer for eight years. In 1921
lie'returned lo his .old home in North
Pakota. lie has'made arrangements
.to return to * Alberta for the reason
that he-has realized that farming conditions are much better there ihan in
his old home.
Another case reported by the same
ofllccr is that of Julius Thorn, who
went to Ogema, Sask., from llinford,
N.D. He did exceptionally well there.
He decided, however, to return lo his
native land with 1he intention ol permanently 'ocatlng there. Ife has

The, chief object of the centennial
was to c.eh-brate the landing on the

Boys and Girls
Throughout our land antl other
lands today, people' are coining
more and more to realize that body
and mind must work together.
Tliey are uot two seperate parts.*-
What harms one harms the other.
As a general rule the -healthier
minds are in the healthier bodies.
Modern life tends to made indolence. This re-acts upon the brain
and the child cannot concentrate.
He finds it hard to use his brain as
he should. His body has become
sluggish, so does his brain. What
that boy or girl should do is to get
out and run and run and run. Let
our boys and girls exercise their
bodies, fill their lungs with good
pure air, set the blood racing
through the veins and you need
never worry about the school-work.
They will do their work better, in
less time, and more than that they
will enjoy it. Study the children
you know and see if those that excel in sports dont as a rule-excel in
school work as well. The future
of this great land depends upon the
boys and girls of today.
It is the duty of all older people
to encourage the children to enter
heartily into all sports. Teach
them to win or lose as real sports
should, but above all go in for the
joy of the exercise and that wonderful glowing refreshed feeling it
gives.  .  :
