Alberta Straw Industry
Will Manufacture Paper From Surplus

Howard Slulchbury. Provincial
Tiade Commissioner, is expecting an
early ami favorable report from the
Government. .Laboratories at Otlawaf
regarding the samples of paper manufactured irom Alberta cereal straw,
which were forwarded u few weeks
ago.
Alberia straw lias proved to be a
highly economical and satisfactory
substitute for wood pulp in the manufacture of paper, and as soon as a
report is received from the east, it is
anticipated that the product will be
placed on the market.
Several capitalists here, it is said,
are prepared lo finance the new manufacture, which should eventually utilize the vast surplus quantities of straw

Celebrate Founding Of Halifax
There is widespread discussion at the present time as to ilie cause of the
crime wave sweeping over tlu; continent, not so much in Canada, as iu the j out corns, roots; branches, stems-
Unifed States, although this Dominion is also affected. -As a matter of factf
Canada can never wholly escape iu.Iuenccs emanating from the United Slates,
whether they be good or bad, and if conditions, customs, laxity in law enforcement, or any other circumstance leads to the development, of criminal
instincts and acts in'the United States, this Dominion is sure to suffer-therefrom to sonic extent. Canadians are,-therefore, vitally interested in the
trend of events across the line.
Chicago, for example, has a record of a murder a day for the first 1'ix
aionihs of Ibis year, a fact to which the appalling crime of which the. two
youths-, Loeb and Leopold, stand confessed, has directed more than passing
attention. Every where .the question is being asked: What is the cause of this
crime wave? '        -
There are undoubtedly more causes thau one, and consequently 'many answers are given. Some blame it on the war and to tlie fact that for four
years human life and property were the cheapest commodities in the world,
and millions of "men became almost iudifforeut to the shedding of human
���blood.     3!ut any such answer is palpably insufficient. ���   '
Others declare the underlying cause is disrespect for Law, and many wlio
tidvance this reason point, fo the utter contempt and open defiance of the Pro-
HeaHli Department*
Gets Strange Reports
i Some Queer "Causes of Death" In New
York State
It seems n.uite probable that there
are in the slite of New York a_number of persons making official reports of death to the division of
vital statistics of the state���health
department who have more- humor
than spelling ability; as ' a recent
note regarding ofllcially .given
"causes of death" well shows. One
strange disease cited ls "Celery mor-
bis" aud "Tired of living (given'in 99
different cases) probably indicates a
kindly view or suicide; "Early rising
and marriage" killed one unlortunate,
another .died "Who nobody knows,"
and a woman"reached the great beyond
through "Serving God and living with
her husband and children." "Paral-
ises of the heart" was fatal once and
"Suicide, self-inflicted" means a cer-
la.in cause for an official report; one
was "Worried to death by troublesome
neighbors," and in another case "two
neighbors" ceiliflrd to''heart failure";

Handicap To Soviet Navy

Seaslcknessjs a great handicap to
the activities of the Soviet navy', says
Naval Expert Lukashevich in an article in thc Soviet press discussing the
necessity for long-distance cruising
for the Bed Fie it
It is impossible the writer says, to
speak about the preparedness of the
fleet unless It has,had practical experience with such cruising. At present the Soviet fleet is manned by
young factory workers, and hc. expressed the belief that more than half
the crew would he put out of. action
through seasickncs's in-their first acquaintance with wind and waves.   .
In the Caspian Sea during the Civil
War, Lukashevich acTded,- seasickness
disabled 80 per cent, of tho crews, and
the remainder hud the greatest difficulty in saviug the ships.
The Terror of Asthma comes like a
thief in the night with its dreadful
throttling, robbing'its victim of breath.
It seems beyond the power of human
aid to relieve until one "trial is made
of that remarkable ^preparation, Dr.

relief comes with a rush. Life becomes worth living, and,-if the remedy
be used persistently, xthe disease is
put permanently to rout. " Take no

Icelanders
In Canada
Brief Sketch Showing How This Hardy
Race  Has Contributed  Towards
Development of the West
(By Steina J. Sfelansson-SommerviUe,
Delia, Alia.)   .
Of all  the non-British horn peoples
who make their homes in the Dominion ol Canard a perhaps none has contributed "more to the opening up and
development or thc virgin land of the
west than the Icelanders.
The first non-English-speaking settlers lo reach Canada under British
regime arrived.as early as 1S73. Subsequent year�� saw a great influx of
these descendants oi Norse-Vikings
until, at the present time, their number is 30,000. Tliey have remained
on the land with the exception, of per~
haps 20 per cent, who live in the larger centres oft ho \vcs_L
Thc trail to settlement has been
blazed by these Icelandic settlers at
11 diffcrenrpoinis in Canada and so
successfully, that prosperity and general well-being' rule in" every case.
There aro no instance*, -on record ot
an Ice)ander'having."sold up" his home
and returned to his own country dissatisfied. They have all stayed and
"made good." -The only Government
assistance given any ct them as settlers, was a small loan In the shape of
stoves, cooking utensils ancl,a. few
cows, made lo "lhe jfirst arrivals, whp
reached fhe west shores.of Lake Winnipeg in 1S75-- -���
Thc Icelanders are a steady, industrious, law-abiding people, well educated in the~ masses and with high
standards of living. None have proved more easy of assimilation. Born
pioneers J and inured to_ the hardships
attendant on alioslilo climate; they
took hojd in Canada and prospered,
plucking a living somehow from the
forests, fields and waters br what was
ihen wilderness. Thcy had Iiltle"to
sell-those fiisL years and nowhere to
sell it. "All thcir business had to b.e
transacted through an interpreter.
The first Icelandic settlement,in
Canada was founded ijti 1S73 at Mits-
kcka, Ont. (near Itos^cau). and a
remnant is still extant in the district.
The heavily' timbered lauds have been
cleared aud cultivated aud prosperity
prevails.
In lS75,-Gimli,7*The Mollicr of Ico-
ous. Foam Lake1, Saskatchewan, in
3891. Since its extension westward
beyond Dafoe, it has become the second largest Icelandic seUlement in
Canada. Mixed farming is the main
occupation jn the eastern section
around Foam Lake and Leslie, while
the western half is exclusively a
wheat growing region. The original
settlers wailed 15 years for the iail-
way to come to them. The entire
district is very prosperous.
The Red.Deer district, Alberta, 75
miles north of Calgary, was opened'up
by Icelandic settlers in 188S. Here
mixed farming and prosperity go hand
in hand again. The Brown settle,
ment, Southern Manitoba, in 1S96.
Grain growing and cattle raising have
made "the community very "well-to-do.
The Pine Valley district ln 1901, by the
original Icelandic settlers." The land
which was heavily timbered has -been
cleared, drained,and brought under
cultivation. ,. Dairy products, hay
pulpwood and fuel have all added their
quota to the general prosperity which
prevails .there. Maidstone, Saskatchewan ancl Grande Prairie, Alberta",
ln 1906; Hunters Island and Prince
Rupert, British Columbia, "were settled by Icelandic colonists in 1906-08,
Okanagan in 1890, and Vancouver and
Crescent in 1892.
In the majority of the cases named
the" Icelanders have blazed the trail.
Besides "these,, an    Icelandic    settlement was formed in Winnipeg in 1S75,
and has steadily grown with the -city
until now there are estimated to be
some  6,000 persons oKIcelandic  extraction.     Here is located the centre
of Icelandic activities, social,  educational,  political,  religious  and.indus~-
trial.     Natural ability and their love
of education has fitted them -to  take
positions  ol   trust and  honor in  the
country of their adoption^ and, as a
result, they are found in the provincial legislature,  the city council, "on
the staffs of the uni/ersily and allied
colleges as well as""of the high and
public schools; in    lha__ front' rank
among the profescions and prominent
In business and industry. "The" Icelanders are intensely loyal to the land
of their adoption.     Mention may be
macle'of thc fact thai over 1,300 served with the. .Canadian forces in the
Great War.   " Tliey are of goofl'tdoan
Norse stock -and  have behind  thorn
generations   of  clean-living,  literate,
deep-thinking ancestors.
The success of the Icelandic people
in Canada as agriculturists might well
make those concerned with present-
day immigration pause. Jn-thcir own
land they are not tillers ol the soil to
any'appreciable extent, and they knew
nothing of the modern science ol farming. AVhen thcy anived they had
nothing lo""unlcarn aud were not
handicapped by previous conviction.
On the contrary, thcy wore fully convinced that ihey must shape themselves to new conditions, and as quickly as might be, absorb' all the necessary knowledge connected therewith.
How well they applied themselves is
best shown,by their excellent record.

1,560,000,000 barrels of cement were

twenty years, according to a statement
made_by B. F. Affleck, President of the
Universal Portland-Cement Company,
before the recent twentieth convention
of thc American Concrete Institute, an
organization of architects, engineers,
contractors and other bulldcrsf.     The
speaker declared, in ilfustrating' the
enormous amount of   concrete   used,
lhat in the past iwenty years this industry might have supplied materia^
for a solid concrete monument similar
to the Washington monument, w.'iich
would havo been 3,015 feet square at

if it went down to bed   rocl:( for"" a

whether any spot on Iho earth could
sustain so heavy a concentrated load.
"There were 1,560,000,000  barrels of
cement   tised   during   this    period,"
Mr. Afllick declared,    "And as cement
is used for making concrete" and as
concrete is permanent, nearly all this
concrete still continues, to .serve a useful "purpose.     Unlike most products
it is used but nor consumed.   Similarly, -all   the   wages, labor, quarrying,

Golden Text: My house shall be called a house of prayer.    Matthew 21.13.
Lesson: John 2.13-22.
Devotional Reading: Psalm 15. "
�� ..
The Text Explained and Illumined
I. 'The Desecrated Temple, verses
13, 14. It was "The Passover of the
Jews," for thus John refers to the festival whicli -Jesus went up to Jerusalem to attend. The preposition up
is usually used in speaking of an approach to Jerusalem, for it is two
thousand five hundred feet above _sea
level. Jesus found the temple desecrated by.the selling" of- oxen, and
sheep and doves for sacrifice (Lev.
J.2), and the charging of money Into
shekels in which the temple tax must
be paid. These' transactions were
necessary (but see Light from Oriental Life), yet not within the sacred
precincts of the temple area. It was
the Court of tlie Gentiles which was
used as a market place, the only
) court into wliich Gentiles could enter>
II. Righteous Indignation of Jesus,
Versos 15-17. In righteous wrath
Jesus made a whip of cords and drove
'out the animals; next he overthrew
the tables of the money-changers and
scattered the money; and finally he ordered those who sold doves to remove
them. "Think you It was only the
glance of righteous anger in his eye
that sent them scurrying? I tell you
that behind that little whip were
muscles- of Iron, made strong by
many years of labor, and a spirit that
never once knew ��ear, not even in tlie
presence of the cross" (Bruce Barton)f
"Be strong!
Say not the days are evil���who's to
__blame?,  /_  -    -	
Andfold the hands and acquiesce���O

New   Regulation   Makes   It   Easy
- -    Remain Swedish Citizen
It will be harder to become a citizen of Sweden, and easier to remain
one after the beginning of next year,
according to a new law which has just
been passed.
The new citizenship regulationTe-
qulres five years' residence, instead of
three, for the naturalization of immigrants. According to the old law^a
Swedish woman lost her citizenship
upon marriage to a man who was not
a .Swedish citizen. But under the
new law such a married woman retains her national allegiance to Sweden until she becomes natmalized under the laws of some other country.
Under the old law Swedes, residing
abroad for a period of ten years auio-
matically lost their citizenship, even
though,they had not become naturalized in the country ..of residence. But
under the new law a Swedish citizen
by birth who has been domiciled in
Sweden retains Ms political status
wherever he resides unless he should
become, naturalised In some other
country.""- Persons whose Swedish
citizenship has lapsed under the old
law may havc it renewed so as to
come within the scope of the new
law by a simple written application
to any Swedish consulate or legation.

the   camera   enthusiast  in his  oilier laudable endeavor, the Canadian   National   Eailways    man'ag'.e-
ment has arranged that all trains
passing the foot of Mount Eobson
��� and other towering peaks along thc
' main line    of    the Canadian National will stop for five minutes at.
, the foot of this mountain.
Mount Rohson-and Mount Eob
son Park is the mecca each, year of
thousands of tourists who have
adopted the slogan:, "See Canada
First," and in the' fall, big game
hunting enthusiasts find that the
territory surrounding MounjVRoE-
son is the finest big-game territory
to be found on the American continent." There mountain sheep and
goats, grizzly, black and cinnamon
bear ancKa wide variety of large
and small game are plentiful and
within easy reach of the hunter
who may be outfitted at the park
headquarters.     '
The national parks are, of
course, game sanctuaries, but game
in tlie territory surrounding their
borders is lawful prey for.the
hunter, and usually, in the vicinity
of a park, game is plentiful.
