General Assembly Notes
At Toronto, Ontario, and within College Street Church there,
the third day Tof June, 1925, at
eight o'clock ^ in the ' evening,
Ministers and ruling Elders Commissioners from the several^ Presbyteries of the Presbyterian
Church in Canada convened according to appointmennt. The
Right Reverend Clarence MacKinnon, D.D., Moderator of the
last General Assembly assisted
by Rev. R. P. MacKay, D.D.,
conducted public worship and
preached a-suitable sermon on the
subject "The Price of Progress."
John ch. 12, verse 24, The Fif ty-
F^irst General Assembly was then
constituted by prayer.
One name only was mentioned
for the position of Moderator of
Assembly and by a standing vote
of Assembly the nomination of
Rev. G. C. Pidgeon, D.D. was
made unanimous.
The appointment of Dr. Pidgeon is of special interest to B.C:
After successful pastorates in the
East Dr.-Pidgeon held the chair
of Practical Theology in Westminster Hail, Vancouver, He
was later called to Bloor Street,
The Assembly of this year was
of particular interest being the
last Assembly.of the-Presbyterian
Church in Canada as such.   The
weather clerk servod u# his hottest brand of Ontario summer and
in addition there was a feeling of
subdued excitement for no  one
quite knew how the Anti's -would
act.   There was a strain of sadness also. The sadness of farewell
���for many comrades of' Presbyteries and Synods had  reached
the parting of ways.   The spirit
of Brotherhood however, so often
manifest in  our church courts,
saved the situation.  We weighed
the pro's and con's and assured
each other that a way out would
yet be found;' and if not ,'Well we
are   still   co-workers"' in    the
Masters _viueyard .and   there-is
room for all.'    x   ..   ........
7 An event of interest-to pur own;

Italian's Latest Invention
Canada s Tied-Up Resources
(Second Article)
Apart from Us agricultural lands, the material wealth of Canada is to bo
found iu its natural resources���forests, iislicric-s and minerals. Through
their development for us*1 at home and abroad Canada can obtain much-needed
population, irallie for iis railways, and financial strength to carry and ultimately discharge lhe huge naiional debt of lhe Dominion.-
Why is it, therefore, ihai in respect to Ils stvi.t mineral woalth so littlo
lias been dune, to develop tliesr resources and thus provide for use by.Canadian Industries of many of those raw materials, or st-mi-m.uiufaclured products, wliich ai the present lime are imported in huge quantities?
Tlio answer cannot he given in a few words, but. requires some explanation. In years gone hy, protected hy a high Customs tariff. Canadian manufacturers had a glorious opportunity to build up their industries in u way
v.here they would have beeu largely independent of foreign supplies. Thoy
neglected their opportunity. Instead of making use of the protection afforded ihem to develop the coal, iron, copper aud other ��� mincrial deposits of their
own Dominion, tliey continued to largely import these raw materials, antl
mere'}- added tlio amount of the tariff to their selling price and pocketed it
as additional profits.
Inning tliia period of Canada's history these mineral resources could
have been purchased and developed at a fraction of present-day costs. But
shortsightedly the manufacturers allowed the opportunity to go unheeded.
Oilier*, however! with greater vision began to bestir themselves and quietly,
without any nourish of trumpets, United Stales capitalists and manufacturers
have for years past been buying control of the natural resources of Canada.
The policy of United States capitalists and manufacturers iias been a far-
sighted one, aimed at the accomplishment of two maiu things. They have
secured ownership aad control of vital resources iu Canada, not with tlie object of proceeding with their immediate development for use, but with the
deliberate intention of tying them up and preventing present development.
To what end was such a policy adopted?
In tlie first place, so long as Canadian manufacturers were content to go
ou buying supplies frorii the Cnited States which tliey could hare obtained
for themselves through development of resources at home, just so long were
these United States interests securing a very profitable business. Furthermore, as long as Canada's resources remained undeveloped, just so long were
those supplies kept froni entering into competition with similar supplies from
the United States aud those interested in tho United Stales enabled to thereby
maintain prices and control of trade which full development of Canada's resources would have threatened. In other words, the United States not only
retained its best foreign customer, but non-development'in Canada enabled
United Slates interests fo keep prices up at home and-abroad.
��� L'ut tliere was another consideration whicli had groat weight with United
.States investors in their purchase, of "Canada's undeveloped resources. 'They
foresaw ihat, with the rapid-increase in- the population of their counlry, the
day was:"coniing .when their.own" natural" resources "would become'exhausted,
or ru least-prove ina"de<iuale to '-meet" their- [own needs:"-"- Taking,' lime by ihcj

Driver Balances "UnLcycle" With Body
and Uses Feet as Brakes
At last the "uuicycle" has been invented by Davide Oislaghi, an ollicer
in the motorcycle police corps of
Milan, Italy.. The uuicycle consists
of a large steel loop and an outer revolving wheel fitted with a pneumatic
tire. The engine, steering wheel, and
driver's seat are constructed within
the circumference of the stationary
steel hoop, to which the revolving
wheel i.s attached by rollers. The
driver balances the machine with his
body as it whirls onward, and uses
his feel as effective '"brakes" whenever
he desires to stop.
Mothers' Best Friend
In Rearing Children
Pain and sudden sicklies;, arts apt to
come upon us at any time and safety
lies in having always handy on the
shelf a reliable pain relief like good old
"Nerviline." For nearly half a century Nerviline has been a family
standby, and most mothers have come
to rely upon it in case of colds, sore
throat, tight chest, sprains, cramps,
nausea and sudden atfaoks-of sickness
at ihe stomach. For internal or external use, Nerviline is worth, its
weight in gold in every home, and
costs but 00 cents at any dealers.

Gladiolus Culture
Rules  To   Bc   Followed   In   Order To
Obtain the   Best  Results
- The gladiolus has "attained great
popularity in recent years.     This is
. due not only-to the ease with which it
is grown, but also to "the wonderful
coloring; and graceful forms that have
been  produced''by the originators of
.'now.: varieties.. No plant responds
bettorvto cul.ivat.on��th.ui the gladiolus, but even tho finest.varieties yield
but poorly if set in" the'ground and al-"
... lowed to' shift -for. themselves.': One
may'..have- all the other contributing
elements but,without thorough cultivation 'the blooms will' be poorly dc-
_ -ycloped. ���' Soil and culture tliat will
l.r.oduce a good onion crop, or in fact
any other vegetable, can be depended
upon to produce fine gladioli. Tlie
ground should bewell enriched and
deeply' cultivated. ���;' 'Some, careful
growers object to'-stable manure com-
fng closely in contact .with- the bulb's
. unless it is thoroughly rotted. Hone
nu-al Is a safe fertilizer for the gladiolus, and without, well rotted  manure
��-one. can use commercial pulverized
sheep manure with--advantage.*���
L!y. feeding the plants well during
the growing season, we not only get
good bloom but. fine bulbs are produc-
'.ed for-the following year. It is recommended to give (he beds or rows a
. dressing' of wood ashes as soon as
most' of the bulbs have flowered. Ap-
'ply this-when the soil is dry and rake
IL in. Tlie plants should receive ihc
same thorough cultivation from' (hen
on as during the early pari of'the-season.   To get line bloom and fine bulbs,
. thc soil must be kept mellow and moist
during lhe. whole-summer.
The " gladiolus Is a great success
used in a decorative ac.ioine.  .  Being
, essentially a cut flower plant, it is well
to grow it.in row.', in the vegetable
garden. Fuil sunshine Is necessary
i'or lhe'best "resultfi. If early .lowers
f .are wauled, not only should planting
' bc douo us soon as ths soil- is in nice
working  condition,,, but  also a  selec-
. ��� tion.made of some.of ihe earlier varieties,  such as, Halle/,  Myrtle. Sheila,
' ..Mary i'ickford and-Lo Marccluil Foch.
Ity   adhering  to  these  varieties  or
using those ihai require longer blooming season, one caii extend the season

Brazilians Offer Odd Prizes
Premiums In Beauty Contest Include
Repeating Rifle and Razor Blades
The business men of Rio de Janeiro
apparently believe that pretty, girls in
Brazil are a bit different. One of tho
local newspapers is running a beauty
contest, with some unusual prizes being, offered by local commercial firms.
\ "There are, of course, the usual premiums of talcum powder, toilet sets,
and perfume, but some of the others
lire diflicult to harmonize with the
prevalent belief that the Brazilian
,girl does-no work, and never goes
out unless accompanied by a'-member
of tho family.
In eluded ~iu the list of prizes is a
repeating rifle, a bicycle, a gas stove,

collections of love stories.
The photographs already published
have not included any contestants who
seem to be in need of such a largo

The Argentine ant, which is dangerous both as a carrier of disease and

^ Testing Chronometers For jNavy
Marine Watch Is Subjected To Intense
* Heat and Cold
Baking a watch sebnis a silly thing
to do. Yet at Greenwich Obser.vatory
it.is done every day.. The watches
are marine .chronometers, writes J. A.
Lloyd, F.It.A.S.
Greenwich Observatory, being under
the control of the admiralty, it is part
of the routine work of that establishment to test chronometers for the -use
of the navy. This work has been
continuously done there for the last
hundred years.      '
At Greenwich there are special
ovens In which tlio chronometers are
placed and raised to any required temperature. Their rates are then compared under these conditions with a
standard clock. The temperature-of
the oven can be maintained constant
by means of thermostats, tlie chronometers being kept under observation
by?skilled men during the time of baking.
But ships often sail to high latitudes
-where they meet with Intense cold, so
the chronometers must also be placed
in rofrlgeratiiig chambers and further
tested under those conditions.
The progress of wireless is fast
making this work ' unnecessary.

Canada At the Norse Centennial
-laborate Exhibit of Canadian Government Attracted Much Attention
During the first week in June,. Canada and the United States joined in
honor of the Scandinavian settlers on
���the American continent by celebration
of the centennial of.the arrival of the
first Norwegian settlers. The Centennial Exposition was designed to pay
acknowledgment to the great contribution which those early Norse settlers,
their successors and fellow countrymen have made to the advancement of
every phase of life in Canada and in
the United States.
Canada has a very natural interest
in this celebration on account of the
large number of Scandinavians who
live In Canada and the prominent part
they have taken In the development
of the country. It was appropriate
that, responding to the Invitation to
send an official representative of Canada, the Canadian Government selected Hon. Thomas H. Johnson, K.C., of
Winnipeg, . formerly attorney-general
of Manitoba. Mr. Johnson is" himself
a native Scandinavian, having been
born ln Iceland, who came to Canada with his parents when nine years
old. In addressing an immense audience, Mr.. Johnson referred to the
happy relations which have existed between* the United States and Canada
for the past generation, and alluded to
,the influence these countries have exerted in the direction of world peace.
Ho paid a tribute to the value of the
Scandinavian people as settlers and
nation builders.
One of the chief features of interest
at the centennial was the elaborate
exhibit put up by the Canadian Government. This exhibit, besides showing the principal resources a-nd products of Canada, represented by means
of "a h'ugo .panel done in Canadian
grains and grasses, incidents in connection wiih tho history of the Norse
settlers in North America. " " Oiie of
the. representations was that of Lie.

Owing to the great growth of
trees around this very pretty lake,
travellers passing by have but a
faint glimpse of its beauty.
We would advocate the cutting
of the bushes between the highway and the lake at three or
four points, as such openings will give beautiful views, and
will greatly add to the pleasure of
the drive between Grand Porks
and here.
We are not advocating costly
work and what we outline can be
done for a very small amount of
money. Automobile clubs should
urge the work.
Borne years ago small trout were
placed in the .lake and theie grew
to great size, but owing to there
being neither sand nor gravel
beaches in the lake and a running
brook, the fish did not spawn.
There being no good beaoh, tbe
lake is not suitable for bathing,
and if it waa leeches in the water
would deter bathers from entering
