Nearly 11,000 000 Bushels  of Wheat
Still in Store. ,-
Shipments of grain for thc week
ending December 10, as given in official statement, bf the Board of Grain
Commissioners, considerably exceeded receipts'. Hitherto in 1920 arrivals from thc west threatened to overstock the elevator capacity at thc
head of the lakes, and only two weeks
ago half the storage was taken up.
Wheat receipts were 5,494,739; shipments, 8,082,257;  oats   receipts,  713,-
886;  shipments, 973,732; barley, 433,-
574 and 427,595;'flax, 164.0S9 and 128,-
158; rye, 133,469 and 170,418.
- Thus  there is left in  store, wheat,

Big Coal Production. -
In one day recently 212 carloads of
coal, weighing 8,500 tons were shipped from the Drumheller, Alberta,
mines, a shipment which established
a record for this district. During
the first week of December an average of 8,000 tons of coal was shipped
to various points in Western Canada.
Production of coal at Drumheller
shows a substantial increase so far
this ycar in comparison with any previous ycars.

\   ��� -   Safeguarding tne  Public Health
\ In previous articles in this scries, reference was made to certain sub
jects, legislation in regard to and administration of which are subject to
'~- ..   f     dual   control  by  thc   Dominion   Parliament  and   Provincial   Legislatures.
Among such subjects, which, however, was not previously enumerated, is
- Public Health.
-    < - The Dominion parliament, which recently created a Federal Depart-
mentof Public "Health, is responsible for the establishment and enforcement of'quarantine to prevent the introduction of~disease into Canada from
_  -    abroad; for the establishment and maintenance of Marine Hospitals; for the
r " medical inspection of immigrants, and, generally, work of an educational
^ character affecting the health and well-being of all thc Canadian people.
The larger portion of the burden of expense and administration irTconnection with safeguarding the public hpalth is imposed on the Provinces,
v which are respons:ble for the establishment, maintenance, and management
of hospitals, asylums, charities, institutions for. thc,deaf and dumb, bl'nd,
��� mentally deficient, and so forth. Under Provincial legislation the direct
and active management of many of these institutions is naturally, and prop-
crly/placed upon municipal authorities, but thc Provincial Government-
males largc annual contributions towards the cost of thcir upkeep.
To a much morc general extent than ever before, Governments and
people the world over have/awakened to a realization of the imperative
duly devolving upon them to improve the physical standard and general
health of the^peoplc; also that the safeguarding and improvment of thc
public health is not a mere local matter, nor even "national, but international.
A plague or outbreak of disease in any one country may, in these.days of
rapid transportation and close communication, threaten all other countries.
People and Governments have at least come to a realization, of the fact
that human life is morc valuable than the life of domestic livestock; that
thcyjiavc been absurdly inconsistent in the past in expending huge sums to
improve ,thc standard of horses, cattle, sheep ancl swine, and to eradicate
disease amongst them, while in many important ways failing to provide'for
the health and lives of mothers and babies, upon whom depends the whole
future. vof the human race and the citizenship of the world.
Bc it said to the cvci lasting credit of the Western Provinces of Canada
that they arc well in the load in thc adoption of the most approved laws
and methods of sanitation, inspection ofi food supplies, the provision of
grants to needy expectant mothers"; in thc payment of mothers' pensions, in
thc establishment of the most mod"rn and best equipped hospitals, psvluins
and sanatqriums. Thc scheme of union hospitals for groups of-adjac-nl
i -municipalities-is one of the finest things yet devised, because through this
plan, hospital facilities arc being brought within reach of the people living
in isolated rural communities. The" expense imposed on Provincial nnd
municipal treasuries is heavy; but it is money well spent, and wi'l pay largc
dividends in better health and a higher physical standard in thc ycars to
come, not forgetting the hours of suffering prevented or lessened to thej
\ people of today. - j

high prices recognize the fact that
economic conditions, which no artificial means, can alter, alone are the
cause of price decline. "The demand
for intervention through Government
control is still insistent in some quarters," hc sa'd. "Canada alone cannot
control world-wide conditions, and it
is idle to turn to the Government for
relief from falling prices. This applies
to wheat as well as to other commodities."..     ' -
Suinhiing up, he. said: "Thc situation
in''Canada at present, as r-yic\v it, is
that while there docs not appear to bc
any cause forN apprehension, therc is

utmost measure of caution. " Cm ada

conditions, and world conditions are
not satisfactory. On this continent thc
two ycars supervening unon thc Armistice havc been markrd by unexampled trade act'vity and prosperity, a
circumstance common to the conclusion of a'l great wais, but the reaction
has set in and may not yet bc in full
play. Happily, Canada is well buttressed on many sides, and Ih" exercise of
piudence ancl sagacity should cpab'c

There   is  one  way- to   get   this
good blood so necessary to perfect
health, and that it through tlie use
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These
piTs make ncw blood, and through
their use thousands of weak, ailing
wives and mothers have b'en made
bright, cheerful imd strong. If you
are ailing, easily, tired or depressed,
it is a duty y8u owe yourself and
vour family to give Dr. W'lliams'
Pink Pills a lair trial.- What"this

surely do for vou.

sharing of it; it is-the- peculiar property of all true pleasures to giow as
they are distributed. So young minds
may early learn the value of this
truth, by being shown that the surest
road to : twining contentment is to
make others happy by their unselfishness and sacrifice.
Some dear children I know arc
planning a community Christmas.
They are saving thcir extra pennies, and "have asked their paienls to
give them, instead of piesents, the
money they would spend for thcm,
and for the other family gifts. These
young patriot.v-are fitting up baskets
of food anel little toys for the charities in thcir home town, and ^on
Christmas morning thcy will aid in
distributing them.' For thcir own
eel bration they havc arranged a cantata, and in thcir spare moments thcy
'practice earnestly. There will be no
caparisoned hobby horses, no flaxen-
haired French dollies, so far as the
children know. But there is* pretty
sure to be a real surprise for them
when the day is over,-though they arc
firm about not wanting any to\s, o>
"extravagant" things as one youngster
said to his mother. What a wonderful storehouse of memories those
childien are building, what chaiactcrs
they will have when they have attained their growlh!     Their parents will
have to introduce a string of^popcorn
and a little tarkton bag or two, just
to keep their modern children's hands
in. At any late ihey have surrendered self in a beautiful way that sets-
a worthwhile example for tluir ciders.
Another group of*families has a
unique scheme on foot, .which not
only presages a happy day for the
children, but which will also keep the
oldei^ members of thc family from
feeling too keenly the sight of empty
chairs. These neighbors will have
breakfast and a tree for thc 'children
at one home. When the excitement
is o-\ er, thcy will all climb into their
car>, and spend thc whole day, except
for a brief rest "for a basket lunch, in
taking less fortunate children for
rides. In the late afternoon a Hoov-
erized menu will bj" prepared at another homeland the day will eijd with*
an-old-fashioned evening of ,charadcs
ancl music. Thc participants will no ���
doubt go home with a healthy tired
feeling, and a desire for sleep which
won't be denied, This program
doesn't allow for any minutes of loneliness or depression.

The Family Herald
And Weekly Star
The Family Herald- and Weekly
Star of'Montreal has announced
that after December 31st, 1920, the
subscription price of that great
weekly will be $2.00 per year in
Canada, England Ireland or Scotland, and $2 50 to the United
States. ��� The recent heavy increase in the cost of white paper
make the slight advance necessary.
In fact it is only a slight portion of
the increased cost over pre- war
prices of production. All renewals
and subscriptions, the publishers
say, mailed before December 31st,
1920, will be accepted at the old
rate of. $1.50. Even at the advanced price of $2.00 a year The
Family Herald'is regarded as the
best value'on the Continent. It is
acknowledged to be absolutely
without a rival, hence its enormous circulation.
