A Call To Public Service
One of tho outstanding addresses before tlie recent conference of Boards
of Trade and Chambers of Commerce at Winnipeg, to which reference was
made iu tlils column last week, was delivered by President Beatty of the
CP.lt. As .-was natural Mr. Beatty dealt largely with the subject of transportation, and in doing so traced the history of both the Canadian Pacific and
Canadian National from ��� their inception. He discussed the transportation
problem from its broad nalional aspect and in a manner worthy of the position he occupies, frankly outlining past mistakes and indicating lines of action
which will make lor future growth and success.
More transportation history is yet to be written In respect of Canada, said
Mr. BeaUyTbut, he added, "with all due modesty I beg to say that the Canadians of today have just as much virility, courage and enterprise as the Canadians of thirty and forty years ago." Pointing out that Canada occupies a
great, expanse of territory with a fewer number of people per mile of railway
than any other country, and consequently, with less density and diversity of
traffic, and enjoying, generally speaking, the lowest transportation rates in
the world, the railways nevertheless had to be equipped to carry the traflic
and provide the services which the people demanded and tiie interests of.the
Dominion made necessary. Despite the most rigid economy being practised
tbe fact was that.no change in improvement is possible without greater traffic
and tliat means greater production and more people..
. Mr. Beatty then came to the-crux of his address; its constructive part,
namely, the;need of all parts of Canada for a larger population, and to attain
that he submitted, that a need existed for a change in colonizing Canada and
that it was imperative both east and west. : Continuing, Mr. Beatty said:
"My suggestion in respect to this much discussed question of immigration
is that we should take it out of the field of statistics and place it in the field
oi human relations. The visitor coming to us from overseas in search or in-
lormalion i.s literally swamped with statistics presenicd in the form of bulletins, circulars, pamphlets, newspaper articles and what not, dealing witli
Canadian aeuvltics. Y\'e are apt to forget that people t'ovnitig to our shore
are human beings, members of families, often whole, families wlio hare torn
themselves, Ironi old homes, homes lu some cases centuries old, io come and
live ir. Canada, to be neighbors if we are wiliiug to be neighborly and to become gcyxl citizens: if wo only hold out tho welcoming hand.-'
"More forethought," continued Mr. Beatty, "must bc taken to secure the
placing of the immigrants in advance of their arrival so ihat the lictle capital
thcy bring wiih thorn may not be frittered away, but may be devoted to its
proper purpose and original intention. Now in thai, preliminary organization of opportunities the hoards of trade throughout Canada cau play a highly important" part, and indeed in the prairie provinces ihey already are playing an important part. Already thirty local colonization boards have been
organized through tbe medium of local boards of trade and those, during the
past yo.uvhave been of marked assistance in securing positions, providing information as to' av.iiiable farms, receiving and welcoming the now comers
aud generally co-operating in the successful settlement of approximately
three thousand immigrants. Now if that example weru followed Throughout
the Dominion from <-oa?;l to coast,'the impetus given" to the soundest of till
methods of immigration would be enormous, for the resu.li would be immediate absorption of a large additional population-with the least danger of congestion at "any one particular point."
In other words, Mr. Be.atty clearly'favors xlia creation of machinery some-
*v>].at along the lines' of the original Soldier Settlement,Board, and now being
carried out hy the Land Settlement Branch of the Department of Immigration
and- Coloni'/iitioii with respect, to those families coming to Canada under tho
-British Kmpire. Settlement Scheme. Such a sjsfem should be created to deal
with all Immigrants and not merely selected groups.
_, Mr. Beatty further contemplates that in.tlio carrying out of such 'a plan,
local bodies such as boards of trade and the many public service clubs should
take an active pan. It i.s not enough that an immigrant arrive and then be
allowed to shift for himself. Au intelligent and active interest in his welfare
ancl success is all important, and this friendly aud helpful assistance must
come from the whole community. Whar Mr.'Bf.'itiy had to say on .this phase
of the immigration problem is deserving of repetition and should he heeded
bv all juiblic bodies and_ei_l_iKons generally._.Uf>_said:_    "__  _   _   	
"Most important of all tho results of" such Dominion-wide co-operation
would he-widening of tlu- personal interest in this vita! matter of immigration.
During such campaigns as thai of Ihe Patriotic Fund, the wen and women
who seived on committees found that tho education gained by such service
was of incalculable" valu��', giving them a new vision of.life and of their responsibility towards their fellow citizens.. The education of public (service
- is. lo my mind, the finest education in thb world. We talk a lot about national uuitj. hut before we can tuid.erstqnd what'national unity means ve
must surely educate ourselves as to the racial elements Unit form our nation,
and '���itch education can oitly be achieved, by personal contact with pur fellow
(iiisi-ns. whether these citizens are native born or new Canadians. There
can bo no national unity except on tlie ultimate basis of community spirit." ,
Fight T. B. Scourge
Ontario to Raise a $500,000 Endowment Fund For This Purpose
Sir Adam Beck's death-bed appeal
to the people of Ontario to raise a
$500,000 endowment fund for Queen
Alexandra sanatorium and its fight
against tuberculosis, is meeting with
province-wide support. The mayors
of 21 cities in. Ontario have responded to the first call to organize for the
campaign. The province chambers
of commerco and boards of trade,
Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions Clubs, and
public servico organizations, generally are swelling the personnel for. united effort. Provincial Boy Scout Commissioner II. A. Laurence, of Toronto,
has approved the enlistment of 17,000
Boy Scouts, in 300 cities, towns and
villages in Ontario, for a certain phase
of the work, and scout troops are expected all to be in action on tht

Stomach Cramps
Yield to "Nerviline"
When doubled up at midnight with
cramps you don't feel like experimenting; what you want is. something to
remove the cramp. Nothing acts so
effectively as Nerviline. Take twenty
drops in a little sweetened water, a-nd
quick aa wink the cramp is gone. Nerviline Is about five times as strong as
most medicines, and because so strong,
only a sniall dose.is required to give
instanfeffect. For stomach, gas, fermentation,' cramps, etc., Nerviline
should be kept in every home . For
sure protection, get ^'Nerviline" today.     35c at dealers.

Once a mother has used Baby's Own

Upon reaching Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, though placed

thus Paul became known throughout
the.PraJtorlan Guard,-Phil. 1.12, 13.
Paul never described himself as a

prisoner of Jesus Christ.

Villagers Believe
Prophecy -Fulfilled
Once Thriving Ontario Town Is Now
But a Memory
Once a' thriving village with mills,
stores and fine houses, Cashmere is
now a quiet, backward hamlet, and the
villagers- lay their plight'to a'.curse
placed on- the;town' -10 years ago by
Corporal Smythe, .a young Englishman,
who tried to establish a branch of the
Salvation Army there, and was "ducked" by the .misguided but zealous village youth, in the River Thames. He
contracted;a cold, and died a few
w,eoks later     7 ..-;.-;.'
According to local tradition,', he
said as he lay on his deathbed:
"I came, but they would receive me
not. Like Sodom ,and Gomorrah of
old, this place fehall fade from the face
of God's earth, until no brick or board
shall rest one upon another. Even
the mighty^ dam will be swept away
and the wood thrush and tlie robin will
build' their nests and rear their young
in'the village, unmolested and unseen.
And over the 'place the harrow and
the plow will pass to and fro, and corn
shall grow where a city might have
flourished. And the place shall be no
more, save this house, which in the
year&to come shall stand sentinel over
these solitudes."
It was in late November that Corporal Smythe died, and the house
which gave him shelter when all others
refused Jjirn. admittance, still stands,
as he said it would, and it looks good
for a hundred years more.
It is village history that one by one
tho mills closed their doors, and tho
people left, Iheir houses falling into
decay. At last only tlie great dan:
remained in the river, and it made it
possible for a .few fishermen1 to make
a living out of U10 fish in the stream.
But the ,_ government, which had
been restocking the liver, blew up the
dam wth dynamite, so  as to  permit

Indigestion Disappears When the
Blood Is Enriched ;i
- The urgent need of-all who suffer
from Indigestion Is a tonic to enrich
the blood.' Pain, and"distress after
eating is the way the stomach, shows
that it is too^weak., to perform the
work of digesting the food taken.": In'
this condition some people : foolishly
resort to purgatives, but these only
further aggravate the trouble'.
New strength is given weak stomachs by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills because thesecpills . enrich ' arid purity
the blood. .This is the natural process of giving strength and tone to
the stomach,-.'.-and it accounts for the
speedy relief in stomach: disorders
that follow the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. The appetite revives,
food can be taken without discomfort
and the burden and pains of indigestion are dispelled. The following
sfatemeht; from Mr. Donald L. Latter,
Lakeville, N.S., proves tlie value of
these pills in casesyof this kiiid.r He
says:���"A'couple of years ago.I.had a
bad attack of indigestion. ��� I ha'd lif--
tie or no appetite, and what I did eat
did not agree with me. and caused me
much pain. 7 As a y result of. 'this
trouble my-general-health broke-down,
and I'finally.had.'to give tip my work.
I had, taken doctor's medicine- but it

An Amazing Experiment
New'York Doctor Kept Fowl's Heart
Alive Since 1913
A bit of -tissue from a chicken's
heart, kept alive since 1913 as part of
an expei iment begun at that time by
Dr. Alexis Carrel, would have grown
large enough to blanket Manhattan
had it not. been cut.every twenty-four
hours, according to Professor Arthur
G. Green.
Professor Green said a motion picture ~ record of what actually occurs, as the tissue grows has been
made by the Rockefeller Institute,
where the experiment was conducted
"It was one of the most amazing
things I ever saw," Professor Green
said. "The film of the growth-- '01
the tissue. was taken during twenty
hours and must have involved a vast
amount of reel. What takes place ln
the twenty-four hours is reduced In
it to a ^comparatively few minutes.
"You see on the. screen-a growth
and a_ development nothing short or
cosmic. Combustions, spirals; pulsations���aii the marvels of biology
seehi to condense themselves into
those few: minutes. -
"Dr. Carrel introduced immortality
in a physical sense. It is.there before your eyes,Jand so long as this
tissue is nurtured,and irrigated ii
will live; .It cannot-die:'r-Its growtn
is so enormous that it doubles it&elr

Laid Peacefully to Rest
lVIr. jas. Henderson and sister-in-
law, Mrs. Casselman of Boundary
Falls, returned the first of the week
from attendance at Mrs. Henderson's
funeral which took place at Royal
Oak Burial Park, Victoria, in the
presence of other me rubers of the
family, three brothers and a brother-
in-law acting as pall bearers.
The presence of so many immediate relatives; the nicely ordered ceremony, and the attractive surroundings
in which the departed one was laid to
rest, .accord-ing to Mr. Henderson,
all contributed to remove from the
sorrowful occasion much of its   sting.
The floral tokens of re��ard and
sympathy were many andx beautiful
and included wreaths from Princess
Patricia Lodge No. 238 Daughters of
St. George; The Milton. Sons of St.
George; Pythian Sisters, Greenwood
Temple No. 12, and Island Temple
