Kindness to children makes a
father popular to children in this
town, and in every town throughout Canada. There is much
street talk just now about a number of parents who think enough
of their children tp romp with
them and make much of them
everywhere. People thinlTenougb.
of their lads to rsmack them
smartly when they -take a wrong
turning?. Parents' who bring up
a family in this way do much for
society, and make a success of
life whether they achieve great
prosperity in business or simply
manage to live honestly.

Nightmares bring uncomfortable experiences. - A heavy load
of covering while in bed will in��
duce them. - Interference with
the digestive processes will encourage them, physical weakness
is favorable to them, in short a
multitude, of oppressive things
which are. incident to life'suggests them to ti% subconscious
mind. Jim Murlee -was a sturdy
Scot who used his woman folk
tyfanically. One night he dreamed he was a woman .kicking his
skirts before him on a sandy
road. His groans and stutterings
waked the'&fcousehold and His
woman folk came and waked him
up. The next morning he took
a pail and weat out to learn to
milk and persevered in his efforts
until he became expert. After
that his woman folk did no milking at all. The men of his
neighborhood followed his example and soon the farmers wives
were releived of this arduous
task. - This is one solitary blessing which society has ever received from a nightmare.

^In these days when Immigration is such a live questionin
Canada and iu all the Dominions
of the Empire, the work of the
-W.M.S. should make a very large
appeal- to all true patriots.
While it is the desire of most
people that^ the immigrants
should be English, speaking-
everyone knows from past experience that a goodly number of
them will come from. the distressed lands- of Europe. It is
jusr.hereThat"such_an organization as the W. M. S. proves in-,
valuable to the Nation. ' A great
part of tbe work of the Society'
lies among the new Canadians.
Schools1 and school homes have (
been opened at many points in
Western Canada, The children
are gathered in-and besides au
ordinary education are taught
Canadian ways and Christian "
ideals. Hospitals too, are maintained at various points. Trained
nurses and doctors are in attead-
anceVfree advice is provided for
the newcomers and everything is
done to make them at home in '
the new land.
It' is impossible however in a
short paragraph to give more
than a glimpse of the work of the
W. M. S. Come out,to the meetings on' Sunday and hear Miss

Sleighing-is not as. popular as
it was in the days before the
automobile.. The need for snow,
roads is not so pressing as it was.
Yet sleighing is good especially
whenMife is young. The merry-
bells chime in harmony with the
gay spirits of youth, and makes
the miles speed joyously;- Yet
the snow gets colder as the years
pass and gradually the merriment
slips away from the jingle.of the
bells. Then the" scow with its
glistening diamonds" is very cold,"'
But .we have sleighing"- now,
which is very-convenient "for the
hauling of lumber aad heavy /
farm produce, and gives joy to
youth. ' _ . - N

Rare Owl In London Zoo
Snowy  Bird Was Caught by Vessel  in
M iti-Ocean
A snowy owl captured on board a
vessel :;00 miles out. of Ni'w York li-.is
reached tlie London zoo.
Chen, was once in I lie gardens it
specimen of this large and fierce
species taken 700 miles from shore.
One cannot mistake the newcomer,
for its leathers are immaculately clean
compared with those of the older resident, in i lie next cage, which havc become dimmed by the smoke and i'o;_s
of London.
What is more interesting to note,
however, i.s Unit, save for his face, tlie
plumac;.. of the latest lodger in the
owls' aviary is richly adorned with
wavy black markings, v. hile that of its
neighbor is almost pure white. The
former is the livery of the immature
bin!, and the latter that of the adult.
The home of tho snowy owl is the
treeless wastes of the Arctic. The
bird is a regular visitor to Great Britain, but it is extremely scarce.
lhe Need ror Immigration
The drop in immigration during 1 *���___:, when only T.'.OOO people entered
Canada, as compared with MM:: when io;;,i.oo entered, meant loss during the
year in the form of increase in thc homo market, equal to over 2o per cent,
in the value of Canada's export trade ia IH--, which was approximately
This may bo a new way ol measuring the vi'lue of immigration but it is
probably the most accurate that could be devised. Without being iu the least
desirous of minimizing the importance of the export trade, it must, however,
be admitted ihat it is secondary to that of the internal trade of the country.
If Canadian mercantile interests last year had had but $1)00,000,000 worth of
business to handle, they would have experienced one of the slackest years on
record. Any increase iu business contributed to the improvement in conditions, hut increase iu the volume of internal business most of all.
A moment's reflection is sullicient to demonstrate the-obviousness of this
iUatoiuenl. Going back (o pre-war days if will bc agreed that from 71903 to
3!U- were years of genuine prosperity. Dominion revenues were abounding,
surpluses having gone as high as .:.7,000,000 a year. Uut during this period
the 'Mai exports wove never higher than ??��07,7fjl,15.l wliich they reached in
Business was brisk, and prosperity marked because, during those years,
Canada received 2,000,000 immigrants. ln none of these, years did she receive less than .121,000. and in I!U2. the number was :>5-l.2:!7. It was lhe
outfitting of0these people, thc greater percentage of whom- went on the land,
unci thus needed large quantities of goods of every kind, that made business
boom. Here were as many as 'J50,000 new customers being brought to our
merchants every year, and all not only eager, but compelled lo buy. It cost
very little to get this new business; in reality it was ihe cheapest business
that our merchants ever got. In the train of this great stream of immigration followed building and general construction activities on a huge scale from
which everybody benefitted.
It: may be asked, how are these conclusions as to the value, of immigration to the country arrived at? No absolutely accurate figures as to the value
of the internal trade for a given year are available, but an estimate made by
the Dominion Statistician and Quoted in the House of Commons during 3922,
placed the value of Canada's production in 1921 at ?5,2li,SG(_,900, and it was
expressly added that this figure did not include several very large items. It
lias accordingly been generally assumed that the value of the country's production runs about $6,000,000,000 a year.

Liniments Won't Relieve
Pain Between the Eyes
That pain is not rheumatism or neuralgia. Many folks think so���it is
due to Catarrh, plain ordinary Catarrh
aud needs attention right now. Ca-
iarrhozone is the name of a wonderful invention that is daily fixing up
chronic cases of weak throat, bronchitis and catarrh. Every breath
through the Inhaler is laden with
soothing, healing substances that destroy all diseased conditions in the
breathing organs. It can't fail to
help, because it goes where the trouble
really exists���and doesn't attempt lo
relieve an illness iu the head or throat
by means of medicine taken into the
stomach. There is no sufferer from
a grippy cold or any winter ill that
won't ilnd benefit in Catarrhozone,
which is employed by Physicians,rmin-
isters, lawyers and public men
throughout many foreign lands. Largo

Widely Scattered Vocation
Lumber is Manufactured from One
End of the Dominion to the
The manufacture, sale and distribution of lumber products is a -widely
scattered vocation in Canada. There
are approximately o. 3,500 sawmills,
portable and stationary, in the Dominion, and the annual cut is between
four and live billion feet board measure. British Columbia is the leading
producer with about one-quarter of the
total output, while Ontario comes second, with Quebec in closo pursuit.
New Brunswick stands fourth and
Nova Scotia fifth in thc line of production. The greatest output of sawn
lumber is spruce, which constitutes
practically one-third of the aggregate
annual cut. Douglas fir comes next,
white pine third and hemlock fourth,
after which follow balsam, cedar, red
pine, jack pine, lamarac, etc. The
total capital invested in the sawmills
of the Dominion is about $250,000,000.
Co-operative Marketing Plan
Claim iViade that Farmers Can Save
Money by Marketing Cattle on
Scientific Basis
"Producers of livestock in Western
Canada can save hundreds of thous-
ands of dollars annually by. marketing
their cattle on a more scientific basis,"
the Saskatchewan drain Growers' convention was told by C. Rice-Jones,
General Manager of tlie United Grain
Growers. "The producer," ho says,
'���through a co-operative scheme has
to keep control of his product to a
point closer lo the consumer." Mr.
Rice-Jones explained to the delegates
the plan of co-operative cattle marketing which his company shortly is
to pul. into operation. To got best
results, he said, at least 05 per cent,
of the livestock should be marketed
through the farmers' own organization. The United Grain Growers were
looking into the possibility of cooperative shipping of horses to Western Canada when thc market seemed
to be looking up. The convention endorsed unanimously the principle of
the plan by resolution.

Many Railway Accidents
Railway-Commission Furnishes. Information on this Subject
Railway accidents in Canada during December last, as reported by the
Kailway Commission, accounted for 18
deaths and injuries to 337 persons.
Two passengers were killed and 58 injured; 10 railroad employees ' killed
and 243 injured; and six persons other
than passengers or.employees wero
killed and 36 injured.
Accidents at railway crossings caused two deaths during December and
injuries to 24 people. Out of 19
crossing accidents automobiles were
involved in 13, resulting in the two
deaths and 17 injuries.
An inlay is a filling that is made
outside of the mouth and when finished is fastened in the tooth cavity with
a dental; cement. The making of inlays is a very ancient process that
was a lost art for many centuries. The
Aztecs of old Mexico used green stone
inlays in their teeth. The green
stone was not used to stop cavities as
we use inlays but was purely decora-
live. The Aztec nobility would have
fanciful designs cut in their front
teeth, probably tribal marks on the
order of our coat-of-arms, then the
green stone was cleverly, cut to fit (lie
cavity and cemented with a very durable transparent cement. Tho durability of these prehistoric inlays is
proved by the fact that there are in
existence a number of Aztec skulls
with the green stone still firmly in
Inlays of porcelain were the first to
be made in modern times. Porcelain
was used because it can be made to
approximate closely the color and
characteristics of the natural teeth.
The process of making a porcelain inlay is very difficult but the result is
so satisfactory that many are made
for fillings where gold would be objectionable.
The gold inlay is now very widely
used. There are many ways to make'
them, but the object is the same: that
is to fill the cavity perfectly, to~ restore thc original contour, and to be
durable. All of these things a gold
inlay does. Tlio miniature casting
that is required to malco a gold inlay
is an art of modern limes. Gold inlays/are mado with remarkable accuracy and, as they are made (mtside of
the mouth, they are much less painful  tftan  gold  fillings  that  must  bo
malleted into the tooth.     Whether a  ,10un, you can see' for vourself ,I0W
good gold inlay, is better for the tooth j thoroughly it  works  all  tho souring

The picture here is of a helpless
widow who was being cheated out of
her .property rights, coming to a godless judge for redress. Her only
means of getting help was to prove
the justice of her claim by her persistence. Even this did not gain access to his heart, for he feared not
God nor regarded men. He complied
with helv request in order to get rid of
The point here is not that^Godcis
like this unjust judge and can be teased into compliance, but rather that If
such action can be secured on the part
ofra godless judge by persistence, how
much surer will be the. help of God to
those who cry unto Him day and
The helpless widow pictures the
church in "this age suffering the deprivation' of her-rights. It is not the
church praying for vengeance upon
her enemies, but suing for the possession of her rights by virtue of her covenant relation in Christ. The inheritance of the church will bo actualized
at the comin�� of Christ. This is why
the truth concerning the coming of
Christ is so vital to Christianity, and
why such disastrous consequences
follow the loss of.the Blessed Hope.
Thc apparent delay in. the vindication of the church may dishearten
some and cause others to mock (II.
Peter 3:4). Jesus' question should
be a solemn warning against allowing
the apparent delay of,, the coming of
the Lord to crowd out our praying.
Though many may give up we sho'uld
be assured that genuine faith will
abide, and that the divine promise
concerning the coming of Chris"t shall
be fulfilled. -We cau be sure of God.

it- was really a soliloquy. He pre-,

Salvation Army Plan to Bring Selected
Youths to Canada
One of the most important results
of the recent visit to Canada of Commissioner-David C. Lamb, head of the
emigration work of the Salvation
Arjny, and his conferences with the
Minister of Immigration and Colonization in Ottawa, is that official en-
dorsation was given to the proposal of
the Salvation Army to bring a number
of selected juveniles from the British
Isles to settle in the Dominion.
Part of the plan is to place.a number of these boys, ranging in age from
II to IS years, as apprentices on Can-
The boys will be chos-

skilled trade. It is here where the
Salvation Army will co-operate. With
the joint approval of the boy and his
parents, arrangements will be made
for the boy to come" to Canada, where
he will be placed as a farm apprentice
under 11-contract for one year. Every
possible precaution will be taken to
see that the boys.chosen are of excellent character.
Already Adjutant Wm. Dray,- of the

It lias been arranged that the first

placed on farms'in Manitoba.
. In the past forty years about 76,000
juveniles have come to Canada from
the Mother Country under the auspices of such agencies as tlie Salvation
Army and it is significant that none
have become a charge on the Canadian public, many, indeed, -have become prominent citizens, a number being conspicuous in the public life of
the Dominion. During the war over
10,000 of these boys enlisted with the

Has Gained 15 Pounds Since Tanlao
Ended Long Standing Rheumatism
and Stomaod Trouble, Says
Edmonton Citizen
"it has been over two years now
since Tanlac set me right, but I havo
enjoyed splendid health to this good
day," declared Elmer E. Campbell,
highly esteemed resident of 9638 107th
Ave., Edmonton, Alberta, recently.
"I had suffered from rheumatism
and stomach trouble for more than a
year. What I would eat always disagreed with me. In fact, food, seemed to do me harm instead of good. I
was always constipated and felt tired
out all the time and lost weight continually.
'"The rheumatism got all through
my legs and knees, especially, and
were so painful it bothered me to
walk. At times every step I took
was in agony. In a few weeks after
I started on Tanlac my stomach was
in fine condition and every ache and
pain was gone and I had gained fifteen
I pounds. I have never felt better in
my life than I do now and I will,
recommend Tanlac any time or anywhere."
Tanlac is for sale by all good druggists.     Over 35-million bottles sold.

Construction of University
To Commence by Feb. 15
Victoria, Feb. 7.���Complete arrangements have now been made
by the government for tbe construction of the new university
building at Point Grey. The
science building, which was commenced in 1912 but abandoned
when partially finished, will be the
first unit of the university to be
completed. Iu order to hasten
construction and assist tbe unemployment situation as much as
possible, arrangements have been
made for the commencement of
construction by February 15, without the delay necessary in calling
for tenders.
Messrs. Sharp and Thompson,
architects, of Vancouver, who won
the prizes oflered by the board of
governors of the university for the
best plans in 1910, have been retained by the government to supervise construction. The E. J. Ryan
Contracting Company will supply
equipment and complete the science
building. All material will be
purchased by the government purchasing agent? In this way many
thousands of dollars will be saved
The new building will be ready for
occupancy when the next university term opens.
After many delays, owing to
lack of money, the government has
decided to complete the paving of
:he Pacific Highway to the International Boundary. Some nine
miles of concrete pavement will be
put down and the work will be
finisifed by-late' summer. As a result, there will be an unbroken
stretch of hard-surfaced highway
from Vancouver to Seattle.
While New Westminster and
Vancouver may profit more directly by the completion of thc highway than other sections, still automobile clubs and officials all over
the province have urged Hon. Dr.
Sutherland to finish the job without delay. Greatly increased tourist travel from the United States
will be. the direct result of this

London, England ������ Shareholders
oi thc Ganiuhnn Pacific Railway
here have beun oiTieia'ly informed
that a measure of relief is lo be
granted Uiem from the British income tax for the fiscal years 19 Li)
and 1020 in respect of the company
payment of the Canadian income
tax. This is the first official word
on the subject of Canadian Pacific
snares. By the Finance Act of
15J20, however, all British subjects
resident in overseas Dominions were
granted for 1020, in some cases for
lUlfl, and in the future, the right of
reclaiming- the British income tax
as though actually resident in Brit-
am. This affected Canadians deriving income from which the British
income tax had been deducted. It
is estimated that the amount saved
by Canadians so situated, if thev
did not neglect t'o file their claim'
under +he Act, would be over 51,000,-

HERE'S the grand champion Shropshire ram bought for $500 by
Ihe Prince of Wales at the recent In-
iernational Live Stock Exposition,' Chicago, for the "E. P. Ranch," covering about 3,000 acres in Alberta, Canada, 60 miles south of Calgary, owned
by the Prince of Wales, and which will
be the future home of the great Shropshire sire.    The  Prince signs himself
"E. P.", meaning "Edward Prince,"
and when hc bought the ranch during
his tour of Canada he rode the range
of his prairie "dominion beyond the
seas," with tlie Alberta cowboys, and
decided thai its proper moniker was
"E. P. Ranch." Since th.cn the Prince
has sent a large flock of Shropshire
sheep, Dartmoor ponies, thoroughbred
fillies descended from Ormonde, St.
Simon and Bend Or and shorthorn bulls
and cows from his Cornwall, England,
stock farm to thc Alberta ranch. The
purchase of the Shropshire grand champion was made by the Prince's representative, Prof. W. L. Carlyle, of
Calgary, who attended the Chicago Exposition in quest of thc best Shropshire ram exhibited. This ram, which
weighs 250 pounds, was exhibited by J."
C. Andrews. West Point. Ind.i;,a director of the International.
