and many have been enjoying the

couple of hours at a time is
enough for many men.

The Cost Of Automobiling
Tin re an.- _ii least liiO.ooO lic.i-nsoibaiilomobilt.'.s in tin.- three Prairie Provinces, <iml il is undoubtedly a safe aiul conservative esi imulo to place an average value of Sl,00(i on iIk-si- car.-;. Tlii* represents an approximate investment lor cars a loin: of oik- hundred aiul fifty millions of dollars.
The purchase ol a car is, however, but (lie beginning of llie expense bill.
In llie cities aii'l larger towns ownership ol' a ear involves the building of a
���garage in whicli lo house il, or the payment of a monthly rental for storage
in a public garage. Huiklliig permits recorded in Western cities in recent
years include thousands of .permits for private garages, and Uie cost of Iheso
would in the ablegate provide for the ereellon of many residences.
'I'll, n before the car can be operated a Government.license must be obtained. The cost of these vary according to size and cost; of the cars, but
a low aw tat;" may be placed ai $15.00 per car, or a 1ol.nl of two antl oni?-half
mil lions of dollars paid to Governments.
. Gasoline and oils are a lurther requisite' if a car ls not to stand idle.
Again sulking averages it js probably uot excessive to assume an.pverage of
two gallons ol' gasoline per car per day Cor, say, a period 200 days in the year.
Any l".;s average eonsumpiion than this would mean that a car owner'was not
g.-tilag value in service for his capital. Investment'in a car. Gasoline eonsumpiion would, therefore, amount to 300,000 gallons a day. or 60,000,000 gallons for the 200-day period, and at 35 cents per gallon will reach tlie sub-
siuniial lotal of $21,000,000. Add oils and the bill will not fall far short of
twenty-five millions of dollars for power aud lubrication.
Then comes the bill, extremely difficult to estimate, for tires, repairs, re-
vharging and replacement of batteries, and public garage services of one kind
and anothr. Let tlii.- be placed at the low average of ? 100.00 per car���some
new cars wiil run less than this, but others will exceed it several times over
in a season���and another -fifteen millions of dollars is added to the total.
Still another item is-that for insurance on the car against theft, fire, personal liability and property loss; also insurance against fire on the garage
building. Some car owners may not protect themselves in this way, but as
a strictly business proposition tliey should. Put insurance down at an average of $30.00 per car, which is Loo low/and it comes to four and one-half millions of dollars. ���   ���
These are the main cost items of automobiliug in the three Prairie Provinces, but they do'not include many other items too numerous lo mention.
They represent a formidable bill of two hundred millions of dollars, or an average of $1.00.00 for every man, woman and child iu this "Western country.
Eliminating Ihe original capital investment for the cars, and charging seven per cent, on the money so invested, iL will be found (hat Ihe annual cost
of maintaining the West's large.and steadily increasing floe.l .of motor cars is
..between'_fil't.y" and sixty millions of .dollars. "'--.   .;'_.-','} ,'y -.';".-   .7 .." V. 7 X  ;���

The visit of the British special

In time of war, there is something
comforting, even, in the appearance of
a British tar. He is a type that inspires confidence and is as irresistible
on land as he is at sea. Watch him
at drill or iu action, and you will see
in him the personification of discipline,
"a first-class fighting man," alert, active, responsive to every command.
Send him ashore on leave, and he becomes as light-hearted as. a schoolboy
at a picnic, the soul of gaiety ancl fun,
getting more out of life -in a limited
time than any other human being, and
yet "ready, aye, ready" for any emergency.
It is this combination of discipline
and training with genial comradeship
ancl sportiveness.that forms one "of the
secrets of.the British navy's strength.

Admit Germany To
Chamber Of Commerce
French Minister of Finance Supports
Motion of gelgian Member
Germany has been admitted to
membership in the International
Chamber of Commerce/'
The motion admitting Germany was
made by one of the Belgian members
and supported by Eticnne Cleraentel,
French minister of finance, on behalf
of the Cabinet.
The motion was /adopted by the
council vpf Lhe chamber unanimously.
Only two conditions .were made by
the council on the German membership. The first one was that German commercial interests should
agree to a former resolution of the
chamber respecting reparations, and
second, that the Dawes' report be accepted.
Tlie German Chamber of Commerce has been organized for some
time iu the hope that its delegates
would be admitted to the Interna'?'
tional body. ~"
Sir Alan G. Anderson, British controller of naval construction, came
from Londo.i especially to present
considerations for admitting Germany
immediately. He said that In this
period of conciliation it would be ot
the first Importance for financial and
business men of other countries to sit
on- the same board with Germany and
learn at first hand how the German
economic interests felt. 	
M. Clementel in an earnest address,
said that the Frenchmen could now
discuss common questions with Germans face to fa;e(. - --
The Belgian members showed strong
emotion in moving the resolution Tor
the admission of Germany, it has been
from Belgium rather than from France
that the opposition to admitting Germany had come previously.

Sir Henry Thornton On Finance
Canada As a Field For Investment Of
American Capital
. In addressing the thirty-firsl annual
convention of . the New York' Slate
Bankers' Association held last week in
Montreal, Sir Henry W. Thornton,
president of the Canadian Nalional
Railways, placed before the"gathering
the fine investment values of .the
great natural resource's of the Domini-
lon, wliich he stated had hardly been
scratched. Tho'.econpmic situation
of the United States and Canada demanded that these natural resources
of Canada be developed along sound
and practical lines, and he urged the
Bankers, 113 counsellors of those who
had money to invest, to educate their
clients to tlio benefits to be derived
from investments in tlie vast mineral
ancl other natural resources.of the Dominion.     The speaker,said in part:
"Despite the fact that much publicity has gone forth, much has yet to
be accomplished to appraise Americans that, the time is more opportune
than ever,for those from the United
States to make investments here. ..Wc
have moro coal in'." Canada than you
have in the United States; we have
natural resources aiid mineral deposits whose surfaces have not been
scratched and with' lands' sparsely
populated, it is up to you bankers to
so educate your clients-of the benefits
to be derived right hero that Canada
will so grow and blossom forth thai
she will stand out as one of the greatest of all countries.
! "Bankers are playing a big part in
the affairs of the world today and il
may be truth fully said that "no" body
of men in the universe of finance has
done so much to alleviate distress qf
nations, governments and peoples as
havc the bankers of the United Stales.
Financial crisis ��� which have struck
panic into the hearts of mankind have
been faced by United Slaf.o.i' bankers
with that show of "front" that characterized the soldier when he went
"over (lie lop" during the World War.
And yet, there are no decorations for
such services as this class of.servant
has rendered. Rather did these men
appear saiis'fied with having done a
deed well and having clone that duty
which their'position gave them the
power" to accomplish.    -   . -

The Text Explained and Illumined
I. The Development of Jesus,-verse
40. Like every one who has ever lived. Jesus ertcrcd into the world as a
helpless infant, and . like all aprmal
children his powers .developed gradually. As a child he grew, and waxed,
strong, filled, with wisdom, and the
grace of God was upon him. "You
know thc Child Jesus in a-picture at
once, by a halo around his brow. There
was no glory in his real life to mark
him; we know this i'or in after years
his brethren thought, his fame strange,
and his townsmen rejected him. Gradually and gently lie woke to consciousness of-life and its-manifold me.vning;
gradually, and not at.once, be embraced the sphere of human duties, and he
woke to his earthly relationships one
by one���the Son, the Rrcfhcr, the
Citizen, the Master.V It is-a very
deep and" beautiful and precious,truth
that, the Eternal Son had a human and
progressive childhood. - Happy .".'(he

What kinds and what varieties
of birds have we got here? As a
rale Canadian boys know nothing
about onr birds, nor our girls either
until, they reach the romantic age.
A. little knowledge of.the birds that
sing and of the notes they strike
might charm away all grossness
from a rapture that gives- of the
dullness of its glory to youth alone.
Indeed it is. important that'boys-
and girls should learn the story of
tbe'birds. There, is something of
practical   value .'in ��� the,-study  of
- . birds. 7 The birds"', that; subsist'on
' insects," those that' eat., grubs, and
'those, that-live -on-V-he iseeds.of

of wheat exports from Canada is
noted in the monthly statement issued by the Bureau of Statistics.
In April, 1924, ,6,085,465 bushels in

in particular, will be increased.

C* eorge Munro, pioneer track layer of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
a received birthday congratulations on May 21 from Mr. E. W. Beatty,

Another interesting co-incidence in connection with the meeting is the
fact that the SrS. Quebec, which carried the handful of "construction men
including Mr. Munro, from Sarnia to Fort William, in May 1875, was owned
and operated by the Beatty Steamship Line, of which ilr. Beatty's father,
the late Mr. Henry Beatty, was president. '������_:���'..
In 18S1 when construction was begun on the last lap of tho company's
Hines between Yale,'B. C. and the Coast, Mr. Munro was.given charge of
track laying-at Emery, B. C. and when the last,and famous 'sold spike'
was driven at Craigellachie by Lord Strathcona in 38S5 he took possession
of the steel spike which replaced the sold one.and after treasuring it, for
the past .39 years as a keepsake presented it to Mr. Beatty. '--
