Wkat tlie West Means to the East
Western Canada's 1925 crop should have the effect of finally convincing
F.li.stern manufacturers, wholesalers ami financiers how l^i-gnly Iheir success
aiul prosperity is bound up in tlio progress and prosperity of the agricultural
producers of the West, and should open their eyes to the fact that Eastern
approval and support of those essentially "Western undertakings ancl policies
to furl lier develop and increase our farm production and -wealth-will result
Instill larger business Kurt dividends for the East. Artizans and working-
men generally throughout Mas tern industrial centres should become seized
of the same knowledge.
In a review of the business outlook in Canada, Tho Financial Post, Toronto, says of Ontario: "Wholesale houses feeling effect of much keener demand from Western Canada and look for excellent business this Tall and Winter in basic lines. Industry speeding up 100 per cent, and over in many cases.
Decided falling off in unemployment." In Quebec, It is stated, "very little
unemployment exists." Iti British Columbia "huge building projects are
under way, Including grain elevators" and "basic industrial conditions aro
Improving gradually." In all provinces tho agricultural position is reported
better than for many years. .    ��� ,
Thus both to the east and the west the effect of prairie production is felt
and bringing about' marked improvement in the industrial aud economic life
of ilie couutry. Concrete evidence of this betterment is found in tho fact that
Whereas a couple of years ago the Massoy-IIarrls factories were more or lesB
Idle, they are now working day and night with full staffs in an effort to fill
orders, and the stock of the Company is quoted at a figure double what it was
at the beginning of the year; Sawyor-Massey stock has more than doubled
Bince February, while Cockshutt Plow has recorded a 30 per cent, advance.
Analysing operating results for the first five or six months of the year, a
.Wall Street financial journal recently hazarded the opinion that the C.P.R.
Would not earn its full ten per cent, dividend this year, but Improving business
throughout Canada resulted in the railway enjoying the best July since "1917,
August maintained the improvement, and with the Western crop now moving
and business generally speeding tip as a. result, both the C.P.R. and C.N.R.
are expected to make a splendid showing for the year.
The head of a Western trust company announces as a result of improved
conditions his company has disposed of more farm lands ln thc past five
months than in the previous* five, years. ,.   The Hudson's Bay Co. sold more
than double the acreage in tho first six months of 1025 as compared with the
same period last year.     An oflicial report of the United States Bureau of Immigration states that, tho number of farmers settling oit the Canadian prairies
. from a largo .portion of the United States is fifty'per cent, greater than for last
year, and thai the two railway"companies, and lli.'.'hud's.on'.s Bay.Co. have sold
more lu\\d in'Westenv Caiiiuia than in-.u.y-'similar period for .ten years.' . Xy'

old "Nerviline." For nearly half a
century Nerviline has been a family
standby, and most mothers have come
to rely upon it iu case of colds, sore
throat, tight chest, sprains, cramps,
nausea and sudden attacks of sickness
at tho^ stomach. For internal or external use, Nerviline is worth its
weight in gold in every home, and
costs but 35 cents at any dealers.
Considering Plan
For Rigid Dirigible
Secretary of U. S. Navy Receives
Suggestion From Ford
A suggestion hy Henry Ford that
the navy department build and ex--

serious consideration by Secretary of
Navy Wilbur. '       ������   *
Mr7 Wilbur has asked the bureau of
aeronautics to examine the plans of
the airship, which were submitted by
Mr. Ford's engineers.
It is-proposed that the ship be 150
feet long, 50 feet in diameter and
have a metal gas bag. The cost ol
one dirigible was placed approximately, at "$300,000.".. 7- "."      ,
-The. dirigible would- have ^a speed
of 70-miles an hour and "a cruising radius of 2,000 .miles.     ��� -7

Italian Engineer Plans to Make Eiffel
Tower Greatest Skyscraper
The Eiffel Tower, in Paris, which
today supports what is claimed to be
the largest and grandest electric advertising sign in the world, would undergo still another change into something perhaps even richer and stranger if the ideas of M. Carlo Gastiglione,
Italian engineer responsible for the
installation of the present electrical
apparatus, were adopted.
What ho proposes is that the Eiffel
Tower should be converted Into a
sixty-six story apartment house for the
special benefit of tourists.
The now building would be constructed by erecting cement walls
about the present structure, and could
easily be fitted out with all modern
appliances. Tlie floor space could be
let for offices as well as for apart-
nients and rooms, and the result would
bo the greatest skyscraper in the
world, promising for the municipality
of Paris a tremendous source of rev-,
onue. These are the views of M.
Castiglione, who has said that the
plans for the building are ilr-prepara-
tlon and When completed will.be submitted to the proper authorities. '

little group .of Christians were praying
in Antioch of Syria, God's will was
made known to thorn. They realized
that he had called Paul and Barnabas
for tho special work of preaching the
gospel to peoples in other lands. The
church at Antioch had been blessed
in having the gospel brought to them;
and they were glad to share this
blessing .with others, Just as they had
been glad to share, their food with the
poor in Jerusalem diiring the famine.
After fasting.and praying and laying
on of hands, the little Christian community sent *hese two foreign missionaries on their way. Thus the great
movement for the evangelization of the
world began. Paul and Barnabas
set sail from the port of Seleucia for
the island of Cyprus. Thoy landed at
Salamls. and after preaching there
crossed the Island-to Paphos.
Paphos was the home of tho proconsul, Sergl'is Paulus". Ho desired
tO'hear the word of God,.but Elymas,
a sorcerer, endeavored to dissuade him
from believing. >Paul vigorously accused Elymas of being the enemy of all
righteousness; the hand of tho Lord
was upon him, Paul further declared,
and he should be blind for a season.
.The eyes of Slymas were at once darkened, and he asked to be led by the
hand. The astonished proconsul' believed the teaching- of the Lord.

Germany Has New Idea
Increase Dog Taxes to Raise Funds
For Opera
In order to support the opera and
make up opera deficits, the Fathers
of the City of Berlin have proposed an
increase in dog taxes from ?10 to $15.
According to Berlin's present canine
population, the tax increase would
swell the treasury by ?1,500,0G0 yearly, they point out. "It is a^uestion ���
whether raising a dog or attending
the opera Is more cultural," says 'one
paper, which further pro~poses adding
another political party to the score or
more now existing, and make a lows?*

The Old New World
People   Inhabited   This   Continent   At
Least 4,000 Years Ago
*- The history of the people who lived
in the southwest of the United States
long before Columbus saw 'the New
World is gradually being disclosed by
the excavations of the National Geographic, "Society. In the society's
magazine for September, Neil M.Judd,
leader of the expedition to Pueblo
Bonito in New Mexico, about 100 miles
west of Santa Fe, gives an interesting
Illustrated account of tlie work done
.in 1924. - One of the buifdings unearthed was an aboriginal apartment
house covering three acres which once
was four storeys high and contained
800 rooms. ~ The indications are that
it was in existence at least 500 years
before the time of Columbus. Although there were many remains of
pottery the potter's wheel, one-of the
earliest Implements of civilization,
was unknown to these people, who had
another method of working clay. Tlie
most valuable discovery was. a turquoise necklace of 2,500 beads which
must have required - an enormous
amount of patient labor-.
A little farther we'st, across the border in "Arizona, Earl H. Morris explored the Canyon of Death for tho American Museum of Natural History: The
chief work was in connection with a
rock cliff dwelling of 8(^rooms, in one

Self-Styled Prophet
Used Drastic Measures
Drowned Natives of Belgian Congo to
Wash Away Sins  .
There is great excitement among'
the natives of the Belgian Congo owing
to forcible baptisms by the self-styled
native prophet, Mwanalesa^ "son of
Clod." He preached in the Sakania
district that he was sent by God to relieve the oppressed native races, and
in order to achieve this baptism was
necessary in the way taught him by
divine instruction. His method is to
.drown converts in a stream.
Before baptism he inforemd the
candidates that'they would depart from
this earth and return cleansed and .be
linoppressed like the white people.
The candidates were immersed for a
long period, and if they came up alive
their spirits were clean. If they were
dead, their sins were too great for
them to recover.
Tho fanatic secured control o.f several villages arid drowned more than
100 natives. Belgium then sent a
police patrol to investigate. The natives, influence by the prophet, killed
them all. Another patrol was sent
and 10. polmo wero killed. Finally
troops were dispatched fiom Eliza-
befhvillf!, who attacked the villages
and arrested CO natives and accomplices and recovered the bodies of 55
who had been baptized. Mwanalesa
escaped. The Belgian, administrator
Is in the district at present, which is
growing quiet.

Unique Scottish Heirloom
Tablecloth     Especially     Woven     For
Feast Has Portraits of All the
Guests.
A Califomian gentleman has in his
possession a Scottish heirloom, in the
form of a damask tablecloth, woven
about 80 years ago on the express orders of Empress Eugenie, to be used at
a sort, of love feast, iii London. WThe
cloth is some-nine by twelve feet, and
has woven into the fabric splendid portraits of all those at ' the feast, with
their 'names'under each. For example* at the head sat Queen Victoria,
flanked,by Albert and the Duke of
Cambridge; at the opposite end F.\\\-
peror Napoleon HI., with "Princess"
Eugenie and'Prince Napoleon; at one
side Abdul Medjid, Omer -Pasha, Sir
De Lacy Evans, General Pelissier
(chief of command), Admiral Sir Edmund Lyons, in charge of fleet; at another side King Victor Emmanuel H.,
Admiral Bruat (French), General Bosquet, General La Marmora (Italy), and
Lord Cardigan, '"head of the famous
"Light Brigade." Thero are also interwoven sundry Royal Coats of Arms,
Ensigns, Lion and Unicorn, and flags
of the nations involved, with cpm-
memorative dates of the'principal engagements such ils Alma, September
20, 185-1; Balaclava, October 25, 1851;
Inkerman, November 6,^1-854; Tcher-

the firm of wholesale linen drapers in
London, through whom she ordered it.
From thence it has wandered to far

Believe Wild Tribe
Lives In Himalayas
Queer Creatures Are Cannibals According To Native Stories
The Mount Everest expedition a year
or two ago announced the discovery ot
a mysterious footprint in" the snow of
the Upper .Himalayas, far beyond the
level where any native tribes were
known to live. This was believed to
be confirmation of a sort for the native tradition that a race of wild men
lived far up the mountains where they
could only occasionally be seen. -Now
from Calcutta conies the story of an
Italian named Tombazi, who claims to
have seen the wild men near Kabur
Mountain while on a photographic expedition. Through powerful glasses
he examined a creature which was
walking upright, stooping occasionally
to pull up'roots. Later, when hf
went to the'spot, Tomhazi found footprints like those of a man. Inquiries
showed that no human being of the
ordinary sort had crossed the Joigre
Pass. The native stories, which are

Dentist Worked At High Altitude
Extracted a Molar During Flight in an
" " Aeroplane
-^ Testing a local anaesthetic, a merry
dentist and a daring, patient soared
2,500 feet in_an_aeroplane.above Chicago to perform the ceremony of extracting an embedded wisdom tooth.
The dentist held that best results
could not bo achieved "on tho. ground,
due fo humidity of Chicago's atmosphere. The patient, a man of about
���10 years, who modestly refrained from
giving his name, was willing to try
anything once, although-ho liad never
tried an aeroplane ride.
J. Nelson Kelly, aviator, tuned up his
Curtiss plane and Climbed to a" 2,500
foot ceiling above Asltburn Field. The
dentist applied the drug, took a firm
grip on his forceps, and yanked.
All came down smiling, -with, the
dentist admiring a vicious looking
tooth, once deep rooted.

?12,000,000 had been lost by the abandonment of coal mines during the last

Believe Bird Flew Across Atlantic
Ont
Was
Killed    In    Newfoundland
Tagged In England
The Canadian national parks branch
which keeps a record of all wild bird
banding operations of interest to Canada, has had brought to Its attention
an account of a bird locally called a
"licklace," which was killed on 12Ui
August, 1921, by Mr. L. Curtis, of
Horse Island, in tho district of St.
Barbe, Newfoundland. On thc bird
was found a thin silver band inscribed
with tho words: "Inform ^Witherby,
High Holboi-n, London.".
. On writing to Messrs. II. F. and O.
Witherby, 326 High IloJborn, London,
W.C.l^Eugland, it was learned that
this ring, No. 07,423, was put on a
young kittiwake (ftissa triddactyla),
on 28th June, 1923, on the Fame Islands, Northumberland, England, by
one of Mr. Witherby's. correspondents.
The foot of tho bird was examined and
was pronounced to be that-of a kitti-
,wake, which agrees with Mr. Witherby's records.
The record is extremely interesting,
more especially as this bird is the first
under Mr. AYithcrby's ringing scheme
���wliich has been in operation for 3 0
years���reported from this side of the
Atlantic.
Did it get a lift on a passing sfeam-'

Urges General Use
Of Canadian Ports
Saint John Man Has Started Out On
New Mission
A. JL Belding, of the editorial slaff
of'Tlie Telegraph-Journal, Saint John,
N.B., started on an active canvass of
Canadian importers and exporters iu
favor of the more general use of Canadian ports by Canadians. Karly in
the year, Mr. Belding made a trip from
coast to coast, addressing boards of
trade, chambers of commervo, Canadian clubs, and various other organizations in search of information which
would be serviceable in bringing about
a better understanding among Canadians, and .the,more general use of
Canadian po.-us by Canadian shippers
and importers.     '
Mr. Belding's mission ou this occasion will be somewhat different, inasmuch as he proposes to make a door-
to-door canvass of the manufacturers,
wholesalers, jobbers,- department
stores, etc., in an effort to bring about
the greatest possible use of Canadian
railways and their employees, and
Canadian port workers, in the carriage
of freight billed from Canada and
rouied_1ntp"fliis_couhfry from British
and foreign sources.

Nurses Use English
x    At World Meeting
Chosen As Official Language at
Congress in Helsingfors, Finland
Although nearly every country in
the world was represented at the fifth
congress of the/International .'Council
of Nurses, held in Helsingfors, Fin-,
land, in 'July, English ."was chosen as
the bfllcial language. Miss Beatrice
Ellis, superintendent of nurses at the
Toronto Western Hospital,; and the
assistant superintendent, Miss Ida McAfee, who attended the congress; referred to the remarkable fluency of
the majority of the delegates in English as well as other languages. China's
representative was able to present her
reports and suggestions in excellent
Eugllah, but the charming Japanese
oflicial delegate had to use an interpret er.
Finnish nurses during'the year preceding the congress gave up many of
their leisure hours to the study of
English in order that they might be
properly equipped for an international
convention. Miss Ellis praised highly /the committee responsible for all
tho arrangement of the congress week,
and declared that she was much impressed with the wonderful organization of the Finnish nurses.
Canada's delegates occupied an important place on the programme, and
the exhibits of books, slides and equipment fron> the Dominion, in the opinion of Miss Ellis, wero second to none.
In matters of nurses' training schools,
hospital administration and public
health work also, Canada was well to
the forefront. Miss Jean Browne,
president of the Canadian Nurses' Association, who had tho honor bf welcoming France into (ho council, referred to the fact that nursing was
first introduced into Canada by French
women.
Five now countries wero accepted
into the council, and China was decided upon as the-meeting place in 1929.
Of the 3,0-19 delegates registered, G2
were from Canada.
