Gulley. presiding and present Aid.'
Taylor, King1, Peterson.. and Mowat.
The Finance committee submitted
an^account from: A. N. Whiteside
covering legal work done in connection with the lighting system. After
considerable discussion this was ordered to be returned to the city trustee
for consideration.
An application for'.rental'-of- the
Kennedy building for the purpose of a
restaurant was referred to the- Building committee for decision.
Clean-up days were  set for April
27th and' 28th, "Aid.   Mowat- being
appointed, to take charge an inaugurate
a movement for as  much-volunteer
work   as   possible.     Aid.   Peterson
offered his services and the use of his
truck which was gladly  accepted by
the  Council. . The Mayor   strongly
condemned the practise  of some citizens allowing rubbish-'to  accumulate
around their premises in anticipation
of the Council' removing same gratis
at the end of the year.    One  of the
Aldermen suggested that the Council
offer a monetary prize  for the best
kept garden and  premises duringthe
present year, biit it was thought by the
rest of the Council  that the city was
not in apposition to  afford  this and
that most householders after seeing
this mentioned would be prepared to
improve the' appearance  of their lots
without any thought of  money consideration. ���
Bylaws one and two were given
final"reading and passed.
Appointment of pound-keeper was
left in the hands of the Pound committee and in view of 'complaints already to hand there will be strict enforcement of this bylaw after ��� this

what they consider is a nuisance and

Stop Tke Flood
The problem of erecting an' effective dam. lo stem tho flood of United
Stales publications, already large and steadily rising, pouring Into Canada
smd Lending lo Americanize; our social thought, national ideals ami policies,
lias for some time occasioned serious consideration on llie part of Canadian
publishers, aiul is now giving concern to peoplo who are lu no -way' Identified
villi t hi* publishing business.
A large section of tl.evCanadian people not strongly opposed to restrictive
policies based on the protective principle, while others dislike Uie idea, of
-placing a I)an on the free interchange'of reading mailer, and-all are more or
less averse to the adoption of any policy wliich might ho interpreted as unfriendly by our* next door neighbors.* But, as pointed out in last week's
snide in this,.'coininn, the situation has become a. very serious one not only
i'or Canadian publishers, but for Canada as a national entity.
Prohibit ion of United States publications is not to be thought of, except
in the case of those which overstep llie'bounds of morals and decency in their
���SI a grunt attempts at sensationalism to whet the appetites and appeal' to the
morbidness of their readers. The United States should itself place a ban
on tlie.se, and if it fails to do so there is no reason in the world why Canada
"���should not protect itself by taking such action. . Such publications are uot
sic-eessar'y to any people. Tliey serve no good or useful purpose, and.:are
wholly harmful. - _
A suggestion recently advanced and now being widely "discussed. Is that,
white not placing any obstacle,in the way oC United States papers and maga-
aines entering Canada, a tax should be'imposed on the advertising matter
���coaliiined in lliem, Canada is used as a "dumping" ground for these magazines and papers largely for the purpose of increasing circulation, thereby
"boosting advertising rates and revenue for the publishers and: providing an
avenue through which United States manufacturers and others cau, attractively place their wares before the. Canadian public. "These magazines are sold
In Canada at a price considerably below the cost of production/and tons of
���-ihein aro carried annually by thc Canadian post office department at an actual
���Joss to the Government. -��� _>'���-���'
"   That these American publications are circulated in Canada solely in order
���to obtain additional distribution of these advertisements is fairly well "demonstrated by the fact .that In their literary contents little or no a Kempt: is
���mad* to cater to the'views'and'tastes-of Canadian readers.   They are "Amer-
.icaii," in tlio"United Stales acceptation of that word, through; and through, f
Take the current issue of, one of the weekly publications which has. a very
���large circulation in Canada.     It consists of 2-10. pages, printed on book paper,
��� and .each copy weighs'over a pound and a half,     ft retails for five cents, or
less ihan thc cost of the white paper.     Of the 2-10 pages, !M are devoted, to
readtng matter and illustrations all, with the exception, of. the front cover,
.printed in black ink.*'   The other 146.pages are advertisements, and.fl of these
are full page advertisements printed in all the colors of the rainbow,-and. then
; some���reds, blues, greens, purples, browns, yellows, pinks,.mauves and varying shades aud combinations of these colors.v In a word, this 'magazine ;is
mainly an advertising catalogue, and a beautifully attractive one at that, of
/-United States'goods. . *    ' " -
ff all this advertising matter entered Canada as, a catalogue, or,as straight
advertising matter,'thousands of dollars would havo to bs:.paid on it in Customs duties, but coming in under the guise of a. magazine it is practically duty
���free. And in addition the Canadian post office distributes a large percentage
of it for a purely nominal sum. It would cost these United. States advertisers millions of dollars annually.to'theihselves print and distribute this matter
in Canada. " 7
- Therefore, it is argued, and with reason, that while United States magazines, should still be allowed free entry into Canada, a tax should; be imposed
on the advertising matter contained. In. them somewhat comparable to the
amount that Would be collected if-such advertising was sent in-as such and'
not as part of magazine.     ���'*    -
The effect, of course, would be a decided decrease in*the number of such
'publications sent into Canada because the publishers,, having toTXiy this tax,
this country to cover it, aud circulations would, automatically drop.     If the
tax   did   not   havo   this   effect,''then it would at least increase our national
revenues. ��� .    ' "' "������*.*.   ������**
Canadians may naturally object io paying largely increased prices through
Customs duties,imposed on-foreign-made articles they require to pin-chase,"
and' on Canadian-made goods the price of which is advanced, under cover of
���terlfE protection, but they are not likely to object to a tax being placed on the
.advertising propaganda of United, States concerns canvassing for business in
''the Dominion. '.-.*.. ������      W, !i ' W ' ��� ".
Upper  Air  Currents
Scientist Says Region of Upper Strata
Has Tropical Climate.
Discussion of the observation of
meteors7nu1.de during a lifetime by W.
F. Denning,, lhe English amateur as
trouomer, has revealed a totally new
aspect of the upper air, according to
Professor II. H. Turner.- " ,
'"'ft has been known for some
time," says Professor Turner, that
the temperature, which falls rapidly
as we ascend for the first few miles,
ceases to rail about eight miles up.
This Is beyond the reach of aeroplanes
and balloouist.s, but not beyond that ot
exploring,toy balloons. Even their
hi formation, however, has a limit
short of twenty miles.
"Meteors have now extended our
knowledge; up to fifty miles and havc
shown tliat the-atmosphere becomes
actually holier in a certain region
of these upper strata; tho climate becomes tropical as regards temperature.
We. may' confidently expect important
consequences lo follow this new clue."

Baby's Own Tablets are guaranteed to be absolutely safe for even

know I am right. All'civilization has
suffered from the effects of the great

Canada, however, and our currency is
on a parity with that of the most opulent nation infthe world. Last year
we had an abundant crop. Out west
the people are optimistic, happy and
