Xhe Cow Behind Tne  Vv agon
Doleful tilings are said aud vriiteu these days about Lhe present generation or youths and maidens, and sharp contrasts to their-disadvantage are
drawn with tlicir parents and grandparents. "We hear nnd read much to the
effect ihat the young men and women of this ago aro going to the dogs; that
tliey lack lho morals, the stamina, the strength of character of previous generations. Much the same kind of thing was said of .mankind in general prior
to the (.real War���thai tlie race had lost its virility, its pow.ir of endurance,
its courage anil ���willingness to sacrifice aud suffer. But the war demonstrated tho falsity of such statements.
None the less ii is true that, we havo lost some of the things that made
our fathers and mothers the salt of the earth. In recent years we havo
heard a good deal about hard times, hut contrasted with what thc early
���pioneers of this country liad Lo endure, these years were tiroes of plenty and
The world progresses and it is only right and what should tie that succeeding generations should not be called upon to undergo the trials and
fi niggles ot bygone days. But our modern civilization, with all its manifold
comforts and conveniences, has caused the young men aud women ot today
to expect, too much for wliac they are willing to give; to assume the attitude
tliat the world owes them a living and that they are going Lo collect it in the
easiest and quickest possible way.
Our attention was recently directed to a little local item appearing in a
United States paper about a couple thai was taking a deferred honeymoon, a
honeymoon that took place twenty-five years after marriage. In that item it
was stated thai ihis couple, which has achieved a substantial success in. the
quarter century since marriage, had taken the original wedding trip in a lumber wagon .willi a cow behind (he wagon, a gift of tlie bride's parents to the
happy and hopeful couple.
This little reminder of a quarter century ago struck a popular chord in
many memories, for within ten days after the article appeared not less than
ten people dropped in at the newspaper oflice to tell the editor that they, too,
had led a cow home behind the wagon after the.wedding ceremony, and that
their only wedding journey -was from the home of the bride to the new home
���where the couple was to start housekeeping. Mosl of those who came in
���were people to whom the years have given good things, many of them being
able to buy cows today by the herd, if they wanted the critters. All of them
gave credit for their success to their willingness to start, with, little and worlc
hard for advancement.
Thc cow behind tho wagon, says this newspaper, is symbolic of a generation 6r real workers, men and women who faced tlie world with little bnt with
���earnest ambition, willing lo give for what they wanted. Armed wiih youth,
���determination,, health and strength, the.world ...was.-theirs for the taking.
The pioneers' of flfiy, even twenty-five:years ago. first required a homo.
But tlie ambiilou of si-,largo percentage, of young people today- is to own an
automobile, whether they;,have a home" or not.-,.Tliey will mortgage Lhe. future
for;present gratification.. Forgetful, or perhaps ignorant, that "it is not the
original cost but the- upkeep," they -blithely-sign A bunch of promises to "nay,

Rapid Fire Gun Disappears
Failed to Arrive at French Station and
Cannot Be Found
Mystery surrounds tho disappearance of a newly invented rapid fire
gun built on lines of the Lewis gun,
from which great things had been hoped for., Tlie .weapon disappeared from
the railroad depot at Brive la Gailarde,
Prance, while in transit.
The gun, which Is the invention of
the workmen of a Tulle arms factory,
was being shipped to a proving ground
for trial before a parliamentary commission prior to iis adoption .by the
army. It failed to arrive and an inquiry was started. It was traced to
Drive la Gailarde, where the box in
which it had been packed was found
to have beeu opened. Parts of the
gun were scattered about the depot.
It is not known whether the parts were
abstracted fo be copied in the interest
of some foreign power or whether the
breaking open of the box was due to
carelessness by railway employees.

Trying New Experiment
Boys In London Orphanage Educated.
As Individuals
In this day of specialization it is interesting to read of a novel experiment
in education wliich is being tried, so
far witli- signal success, by one of the
orphanages of Loudon. Each boy is
treated as an individual, and a separ-
aate timetable is drawn up lor his
benefit. Class work is in this way
abolished altogether. A boy is encouraged to specialize in the particular branch for which he is fitted, and
the contldenL hope is'expressed that in
this way those whom the institution
sends .out into the world will be found
specially equipped- for the vocation in
life they ara-to follow.

Twins  Thinks  In  Unison
Brothers in Warsaw Are An Enigma to
A pair of twins, about 50 years of
age, aro an enigma to physicians and
scientists. The twins appear to
think and act in unison. An unexpressed thought harbored by one of
the twin brothers appears to spring
into the mind of the other almost'simultaneously. What one desires the
other also wants and each and every
suggestion by one is accepted at onco
by the other. Said -to' have been at
one time wealthy, the twin brothers
have for some time been in poverty in
and around their home near Warsaw.
Pride apparently prevented them asking for aid and they are said to have
entered a suicide pact. Wrapping
heavy fur collared coats about themselves, tho twins lay down in a chicken coop to die. ��� After being in the
coop for several days they'were found
half starved. '

his companions went by way of the
cities of Amphipolis and Apollonia to
Thessalonica. Here at Thessalonica
they remained several months, as wo
know from Paul's letters to the Thes-
salonians'. but Luke speaks only of his
preaching in tho-synagogue for three
successive Sabbaths. Luke says ho
"reasoned with them"; he cited Scrip-,
ture passages, which were prophetic of
the Christ: iie then showed that Jesus
fulfilled these prophecies, and thus
reasoned, or argued, that Jesus ls the
Christ. Arnot explains Paul's reasoning . by this figure: "The Jews
were like little children who had-a
tree in their garden, their father's
legacy. - The children had gathered
the nuts as they grew, and laid them
up with reverence in a store house;
but they knew not how to break open
the shell and'so get the meat out of the
nuts. Paul broke the shell, opened
out the kernel, and presented it as
food to the hungry."

Flying Into Matrimony
Swedish Couple Had.Ceremony. Performed 0*i Board Aeroplane
A young Swedish couple were recently married while flying, through
the air on board an aeroplane. When
tho machine, carrying a full complement of passengers; had risen to a
height of "1,500 ft., an altar was erected In the caDin, before which a Swedish clergyman performed the marriage
ceremony, with a lawyer and his wife
as witnesses. A wedding break'fast
was then served, and the health of the
couple drunk in champagne by all the
passengers. The clergyman and the
lawyer left the machine at Hamburg,
but the couple continued their honeymoon trip to Amsterdam.

Sennar Dam, Near Cairo, Egypt, Has
Been Completed
Oneof the. most remarkable engineering enterprises that - lias been
brought to a successful conclusion iu
recent years "Is the Sennar Dam, the
gigantic wall of masonary that holds
back the flood waters of lhe fllue Nile,
some 2,000 miles south of Cairo, in
Egypt. *
Two miles long and ninety leet
thick at its broadest base, it has just
been completed, several months ahead
of contract, alter years of dogged efr
fort in the lace of many and strange
diflicullies. ' '
Writing of the country Ihereaabouts
sonic twenty-five' years ago, U. W.
Stevens, war correspondent, declared:
"Northward of Khartum ihe Sudan is
a wildernesa; boulhward it is devastation." Right in the midst of this devastation today, is' a modern city of
some 25,000 persons.
WJiero, little more than two years
ago, crocodiles nosed their' way in
and out of the swamps and rivers,
baboons chattered iu the trees and
herds of elephants roamed through the
underbush, thero is today a well laid-
,out- town. It has electric light, an ex-*
cellent water supply and an ice plant;
.and if, occasionally, a llou, greatly
curious, wanders down Main Street,
it is.no move than a reminder to the
inhabitants of the hole of the pit
whence they were digged.
As tlie dam stands completed today,
with its sixty miles of canal and
branches down which the water Is to
flow to the cotton Holds, the total sum
advanced by the British treasury 13
lound to-be more than $'60,000,000.
That in spit3 of this high initial cost,
liJvr-work will prove enormously profitable cannot be doubted. More than
800,000 acres of wilderness will be un-
d^r rota five cultivation next year, and
already new irrigation schemes are
being discussed to Jake in another
3,000,000 acres.
Character Cannot Be
-Judged From Face
Recent :Tp'Bt Shows Appearance Does.
-Not  Indicate   Intelligence
"That, the ^intelligence of a person
:can be judged by his appearance, the
shape of.his head or' the features of
his face-has been disproved'by experiments conducted- bj' Professors
Donald A..-Laird and, Herman Rem-
mers, of Colgate University, Glen U.
Cleeton, of the Carnegie Institute. of
Technology, and F. B. Knight of the
University of Iowa," says Dr. A., J.
Snow; professor of'psychology, Northwestern University, Chicago, in a
special article. ��     .. ..'
"In one test, pictures were submitted to 370 persons and their estimates
of tlie intelligence and abilities of the
ten subjects were compiled. . There-
suits showed that in attempting to arrange the pictures according to relative intelligence they- could have done
as well with iheir eyes closed.
"In another experiment, two groups
of sorority girts, ten in 'each group,
aud one group of ten fraternity boys
were selected as subjects. Friends
of ilie-thirty then gave* their opinions
as to the intelligence, frankness, will
power, ability to make friends, leadership, originality and impulsiveness ol
the subjects under observation. These
opinions were found to agree- very
closely except in the cases of frankness" and ability to mako^friends.
"Next a large number of, business
men/ school teachers, employment
managers and others used to meeting
strangers and judging them from their
appearance were given a look at the
thirty, oue at a time, and their impressions compare,d. Their opinions*
agreed very well with each other, but
did not agree with the estimates of the
friends who really knew the subjects.
"Thc only possible conclusion is that
a peculiarly shaped head, an odd car,
close-set eyes, a hooked nose, wide
mouth, receding chin, or any other unusual feature about your head has
nothing to do with whether you arcin-
tolligent or dumb, honest or criminal,
or whether you would be a success in
one line of work but not in another."���

Tokio Children Feel       7
Effect of Earthquake
Large  Number in Slums Suffer From
Lackof Food '
The effects of the great earthquake,
and Are-of 1923 are still being felt by
the children of Tokio. Investigators
of the ' child welfare-section of tife
Tokio municipality report that more
than 60 per cent, of the children under seven years of .-age in the slum
quarters have been found to be unhealthy either because of under nourishment or diseases of various kinds.
There is every indication, says the report, that the situation will- become
worse unless immediate steps are taken to care for tho.tp housed in the temporary structures in the poorer 'sec-
tions of the city. ''...'���      "   .
���"The jmosi immediate cause of the
'unhealthy condition of. the children,"
said Eimatsu Okazaki, head of the
child welfare section, "is the fact
that they have not been fed so well
as tliey 'wire following the groat
earthquake. This was especially the
case during ihc period when the city
mo beginning to bc rebuilt. Just before that, the children in the slum districts had been lairly-well fed with
supplies sent to them by relief organizations all over the world.
"Later, however, many poor families were thrown on their own resources. - In addition/the present unemployment situation, whicli has led
to an almost, total lack of work for
wives of laborers, has still further
depleted the incomes ot tlie poorer
"Another cause for the poor health
of the children? is that they have
been forced to play in the ruins of
Honjo and ��� Fukagawa, and much ol'
what seems sand aud solid ground is
in reality nothing'but the ashes of the
buildings inthose suburbs. All green
growing things in these districts had
been destroyed by fire and the wind
raises the dust for the children to
brcatlie." ' ���

Comet Had Several Tails
Six Diverged From Head of One
Discovered in 1743
It* is reported irom Germany that
photographs taken of the comet Orkisz
show that it has now developed a second tail. This tail cannot be seen
with a telescope. . The primary tail
also is, to all intents and purposes,
merely a photographic object, only
the vaguest, indications of- it being
perceptible In a telescope. A duplicity, or even a multiplicity, o'f tails is
by no means an uncommon occurrence,
although it is not often seen in objects
so faint as the present comet. The
great comet of -1743, discovered by
Klinkonberg, had six tails diverging
like the ribs of a fan from its head. In
some comets the tails are curved, in
others tl.ey are straight, while often
curved and straight tails exist together.
A Canadian Explorer
Major Burwash Starts On7a Long
Patrol of Northern Points in
When Amundsen made his spectacular flight io the North Pole--br to
some point in its vicinity���the whole
world wasjnterested. When the McMillan expedition, thoroughly outfitted
and equipped in. every Way for its
work of Arctic exploration set out,
every item of news about the trip ,1s
featured in the.press of the world.
: Less is heard about the trip a Canadian is making into the far north.
Tho magazine published by the interior department at Oltawa gives
some particulars about tlie little advertised adventure on which Major L.
T. Burwash, of the government service, has embarked. Major Burwash
has started on a long patrol from tho
mouth of the Mackenzie Kiver to Hud-
sou's Bay. lie goes alone on his two
legs, expects to be two years on' the
journey, and to live with thc Eskimos
he encounters on the way. lie will
study the counlry, estimate the population, make astronomical aud meteorological observations, and take, notes
ou bird, animal and floral life. He
expects at the end of two years to
come .out cither at Repulse Bay or
Chesterfield Inlet, as convenience at
the end of the trip may determine.
Tliere is no great publicity about
such an adventure as that of Major
Burwash. Nor is it unusual for men
in the Canadian service to make these
long and arduous northern journeys.
Men of the department of tho interior
are forever doing it, as are men of the
Mounted Police. There is scarcely
an annual report of tho Mounted
Police issued that does not contain a
brief but graphic report of u trip covering long months and thousands of
miles on foot, by canoe, dog-sled and
snowshoes. Theso trips aro often

or sonm wonderful books 01 . travel

Years Old
England's famed oaks are disappearing." Many oaks were cut down
during the war, as the wood was urgently needed. Said a botanist, "The
wood'ol an oak is not really any good
until the tree is 400 years old, and
people today cannoi afford to grow*
Oaks for posterity. Originally large
parts of England were covered with
oaks. -The tree is almost a rarity
now in some places. It Is said that
an oak takes 100 years to grow 10 full
size, is mature for another -100 years,
and takes 400 years more to decay.

Not the smallest part of the education of a Canadian Teacher
should be a knowledge of the Dominion, derived from personal contact
with its vast areas. When in addition
the West is brought home to the East
by a tour covering most of the
former's points of interest, commercial, agricultural and scenic, then a
very valuable addition to one's
knowledge of one's own country litis
been consummated.
This is the object of the 21-day
tour of Canada which is now being
arranged by the Canadian Teacher's
Federation in repetition of their very
successful similar trip last summer.
Th'e party will leave Toronto westbound July 20 and wilL be back in
that city August 10.- It will be under
.the personal  direction  of Professor
Sinclair Laird,  Dean of the School
_ for Teachers, MacDonald College,
Quebec. The journey out and return
will be over Canadian Pacific Railway
lines, motors and boats and stop-overs
will be arranged at points of interest.
Starting from Toronto in the afternoon, the train passes through a land
of beautiful lakes, the Muskoka
region^ reaching Sudbury and continuing through the big game district
of Northern .Ontario and skirting thc
shores of Lake Superior for many
miles before arriving at Port Arthur
and Fort William,the twin cities where
most of the western grain is stored.-
A day is spent in Winnipeg, the
centre of the greatest grain marketing
avid inspection point in the Empire.
Half a day is spent in Hegina and
Moose Jaw is reached the same day.
Then on to Calgary where the last of
the prairie country is coyered and
the foot hills of the Rockies commence.
Passing next day through the Gap,
the gateway - bf the Rockies, where,
the roadway is hewn through the
solid rock, Banff is reached on the
first Saturday of tho trip.
At this point the traveller enters
fairyland. Banff is the headquarters
of the Rocky Mountains Park, a
region of 2,751 square miles, covering
rivers, lakes and mountain scenery
of unsurpassed grandeur. _ The weekend is spent in this district. Drives
and automobile trips "here make
a pleasant contrast with. the train
journey and the wonderful sights
will live long in memory_ There is
Lake Louise, an exquisitely colored
limpid mirror of - glaciers and snow-
crowned peaks and the brilliant blue
of the sky with its argosies of.fleecy
clouds. Mounts Stephen, Chancellor
and Sir Donald rise into view as the
Great Divide" is crossed and the
marvelous Yoho Park is traversed.
Canyons, caves, valleys, depp gorges,
passes twinkle past the train in its
journey which is sometimes slowed up
to admit of a more lasting impression.
The scenery is so perfect that to avoid
missing any the train does not travel
at night and continues its journey at
dawn. For 250 miles it passes through
the Great Canyons of the Thompson
and Fraser Rivers and the long,day of
fifteen hours is one unbroken pasture of delight. Vancouver is at last
reached and '-a short but interesting
boat trip is made across the straits of
Georgia to Victoria with a panoramic
view of beautiful islands, bays and
rpeky headlands ancl the snowcapped mountains of the Coast range:-
and the Olympics as a background.
The return journey takes v.?
through the Cascade Mount.ui.s and
the Kelowna Valley to Nelson, commercial centre of the Kootenay
district;1 An overnight journey ends
at Lake Windermere where after s
trip to the Camp there is a motor run
of, 104. miles over the newly com
pleted Banft'-Windermero Kip-hv/ay
through awe-inspiring scenery. Saturday; Sunday, Monday and Tuesday-
four full days���are taken up witi.
the above. Then commences the tvi;:
across the prairies to the head of thc-
lakes which is reached via -Edrnpntcf
aticl Saskatoon to Lake of the WboJt
district. A full 24 ' hours is'.apeni
among the sights of this wendc-riu'
Lake district and then the trip ^oof
on to Fort William. From thio yoiii i,
the journey is continued by boat
through Lakes Superio^and Huron to
Port McNicoll whence Toronto is
reached four hours later, and the trip
. It is difficult to conceive of a more
healthy or a more diversified holiday
than the one outlined  above,     fi:
addition it brings home to the participant the glory cf Canada in a v,\tj
that is unequalled in so short a time.
