The appeal in the case of Cudworth
vs. Eddy, oiigiiially tried here before-
Judge Brown and a jury, was allowed
by the Court~of Appeal at Victoria
on  Friday,..the  11th inst.
This was'an appeal by plainlilf
from the judgment of -Judge Brown
in tlie -County Court at Greenwood,
in an action claiming $500 commission on a real estate deal. Plaintiff,
a married woman, alleged that she
was employed by the defendant to
sell his ranch for $15,000, and was to
get a commission of .$600 on any sale
she brought about. Defendant denied
liiis ahd states that the agreement"
was that if the plaintiff procured a
purchaser,-she would be paid something .for her trouble when the purchase money was paid.'
Plaintiff, according to the evidence,
did procure a purchaser, and- one of
the terms was. the acceptance of an
agreement for sale_ of land in-Saskatchewan as part' payment to the
amount'of $3,300. ,-This was tp he
subject to inquiry .as to value. The
negotiations between the plaintiff and
defendant" as to the former getting a
purchaser 'commenced late in August,
1924, and extended to September 13,
1924.
The defendant's inquiries as to the
satisfactoriness of the-agreemenl of
salo wore apparently finished on September 20, 1524, when he notified tlie
plaintiff that lie would accept it in
part payment. Plaintiff, during the
early part, of the'transaction was not
a" holder of a real estate agent's
licence, which is a condition precedent to entitle a,person to bring an
action for commission.1 But she obtained one on September 16. The
deal was completed on September 20
by the notification from the defendant" that - he was satisfied with the
Saskatchewan agreement.
Defendant moved for a non-suit -on
the ground that the plaintiff had fully
earned her commission on September 13, but-that as she was no,t then
a holder of a, real estate, agent's licence, she was not entitled, in law,
to recover. -The judge took the case
from, the .'jury, and .directed .a nonsuit. -
The Court of Appeal, on the .contrary, was of opinion that the plaintiff's right of action did not arise until the deal was completed; that it
was-not completed until September
20,- when* defendant accepted the Saskatchewan agreement,'1 as until he did
so, it could not be-said that the plaintiff had produced a purchaser'"ready,
able and willing" to carry out his side
of th'e transaction.
A  discussion   arose   as   to   what
would be. tha effect of allowing the
appeal,  Mr.  Moore  pressing  for  immediate  judgment  and    Mr.   Lucas
-urging���that-tliere-should-be-a-new-
trial,  when the Chief Justice reflected that, as the defendant had moved
���at the trial -for a non-suit, he must'
be" taken lo have rested his chances
of success. on the weakness of the
plaintiff's case   rather   than   on   the
strength  of  his  own.      He   cannot,
therefore,  be heard  to  say that lie
can take advantage of the appeal and
.return  to build  up a  case on what
was shown on tlie'appeal.   The court
���would,  therefore,  exercise its discretion   and  allow   the   appoal,  giving
judgment for the amount of commission claimed.
Mr. H. W. K. Moore appeared for
appellant; Mr. E. A.\ Lucas ari<| Mr.
C. P. R, Pincott for respondent.

The most encouraging raiding mailer to be laid before tho pufiple'of Can
ana, for many years was thai, selling forth tlio uoniplele" operating results of
:ho Canadian National Railways ior the your 192i>, supplemented a few weeks
later by the statement made to��� Parlhuni'iit by Hon. C. A. Dunning, lhe now.
Minister oj.l.al'hvays. The Canadian Nalional Railways, and its predecessors
in lho various separate lines which now constitute the National system, havo
"for so long been, n. tinancal burden un'the Canadian tax payor, that it is a distinct relief to road ihu really splendid showing'of the system last year, and
.lie furtlier betterments iilreaily reported for !H)2(*. ..
��� The .net Earnings of the Canadian National last your were nearly double
tuose of 1-92-1, being ?22,2G-i.-ll4 as compared, with ?I7.'.M-1,25.L. . This substantial betterment was 'brought, about in two ways, by an increase of nearly feu
million dollars In oper-unig'revenues, and a decrease of over Ave and one-:
naif millions in operating expensbs. Net,earnings in 1925 were twelve times
wliat they were in 1922. ��     "*
Supplementing this annual statement for-1025, Air. Dunning was able to.inform Parliament that for. the first four months -of. :I92G, net yearnings of the
Canadian National amounted lo -,?9,(iS9,2l7, a record "for any similar, period
in the history of the amalgamated system,'and the Minister, was therefore
iu the happy position..of being able to say that '���given a reasonably good harvest and freedom from tratlic losses duo'to labor difliculties it may be .possible for the National Kail ways to pay this year their, "entire. Interest charges
��� - .   - ���    ��� . _^r
due the public." - ..."
That is to say, if present conditions are main tained, and the promise ol
the 192G crop realized, the-"Canadian people this year will not be called upon
to make good any deficit out* of tuxes.
t"For the first time, too, tlio Canadian Government ships, now operated by
the Canadian "National management, showed an operating profit, during the
iirst four months of 192G.     The National Hallways are carrying cargoes'. to
the ships, and the ships aro bringing tratlic to the railway,
Sometimes operating betterments are shown by cutting down expenditures
in-the provision of needed equipment and in; maintaining-a railway fully, up to
standard. In the case of the-Canadian National, however, il is satisfactory to
learn that this is not the case."    On the contrary* the physical condition oi
��� the system has been steadily improved and better, not less satisfactory, service
iirovidcd.       ��� " -Z_'.;        ������_,���.��� ;'"���-'
As pointed out in a recent article, it was'this improvement in Canadian
National finances wliich was'an important factor in enabling the Finauco Min-"
' ister In his recent budget to lower the Income Tax, return,lo two-cent postage, wipe out the receipt tax, and reduce the Customs duties, on certain types

the enormous war debt which, the-Dominion now has to, carry.    Either step,.
of course, would mean a rurther reductin.In' the -financial burden-and. obligations of the Canadian people. y**r'
Finally,.it isii-maUer of particular national gratification that,this steady

It may bring you happiness aud friends,

may not be easy to classify your ability or find a title for it.
"Nomenclature" is a. profession ot

Some of tho names Miss Rogers suggested, or invented, for prepared cereals and other foodstuffs have become known throughout the world.
Writing Off the Debt
Giving the Canadian National a Chance-
To Pay Profits On Its Real Value
If tho Canadian Natiomil can be
brought to tlie point of paying Interest
to tho bondholders out of its earnings,
thero la much "to bo said for the suggestion that the government should
write off at least some of the huge
debt contalued in its, own account
against the railways. It is true that
this would be literally a matter ot
bookkeeping. The debt "would remain. Tho account would be transferred to the national debt.
But the moral effect would be salutary, and doubtless It would be rolled*
ed lu a greater buoyancy of that intangible but vital psychology of business which counts for so much nowadays in the material prosperity of the
nation. Mr. Dunnlug says it is questionable if any railway management
"could make good the frantic borrowings which overwhelmed the .former
���owners." Thai, is the .real, point at
Issue. "It ls not fair to charge- the
railways with debts whicli are really
the heritage-of a frenzied finance.; It
would be better business to squeeze
all tho water from the .National; to
revaluate it op a--.physlcal basis; .-to
give ,lt a chance to pay profits on its
real value as a going concern; and to
charge the water to those other "liabilities' of calamity," such as thc Avar
debt, which have to bo paid, but which
need not and should not' be liung as a
millstone on the nock or any single Industry.���Vancouver Province".

A safe and sure medicine for a child

Worm 10x terminator,    ���
Watery Blood
Thin blood and weak nerves generally are found together.    .Red blooded
people seldom   complain   of  nervousness.     The reason Is that the blood
feeds the nerves and keeps them toned up to do the work nuturo intended.
'When the blood is thin and weak It
fails''in this   important function   and
nervous troubles follow.   The following case will interest those who need
a tonic for the blood and nerves. Mrs.
IX Veno, Union Square, N.S., says:���
"With a feeling of gratitude I write
to   tell   you   what Dr. .Williams' Pink
Pills did for me.     I had become badly run, down, and reached the si ago
when 1 could not do my housework.   I
was not only weak,   but   my   ner-ves
seemed   completely   shattered.     The
*leasHiol3e-wouId startle-me-iuid-I-was-
subject to nervous headaches.   Worse
still, 1 could not sleep at night.   Perhaps I would get an hour or two sleep,
and then lie awake for the rest of the
uight.     I had reached a stage when I1
actually feared I would lose' my mind.'
>Up to the time I decided to take Dr.
Williams' Iiuk Pill!),- nothing  I  had
taken seemed to do mo any good.     1
got a few boxes of these ancl  soon
there-was no doubt   ihey   wyere   the
medlciiio lo help me.    As I continued
the use of the'pills I gradually grew
stronger, ate better and could sleep
at night, and now I am aa well and
strong as aywoman could wish to be.
I hope, some other weak, nervous person will be benefitted by my experience."

Red   Diamond   Dug   Up At  Kimberley.
(Mines
A red diamond of considerable value
has been found ou tho alluvial river
dlgglns ..at Kimberley, South Africa.
This specie,^ of stone ia very rare, and
is -likely to fetch anything from $600
to $750 a carat.
The cutting of the stone"wa3 placed
hi the hands of a local firm, and,
though the accomplishment of iliis ha3
proved of somc difficulty, the result
will be that a flawless stone of about
six carats will bo produced.
The gem, at first glance, might be
taken by the .uninitiated to be a>ruby
of" gigantic proportions, as it is an entirely rod stone without a blemish of
any kind.' " Closer Inspection, however, reveals that It possesses all the
requisite properties of tho tviie diamond, " tho grain being absolutely-
similar.

WHY   EAT  CEREALS?
(Issued  by the  B.C;  Medical  Assn.)
With the exception of very young
children, tlie human family needs a
variety of. other foods than milk for
growth* as Avell as t'or repair of waste,
. In Canada, wheat,- oats, corn and
rico are the .cereal'grains ordinarily used; less commonly barley, rye,
and buckwheat. Whether we use
flies�� cracked, rolled, or coarsely
ground, and call them "breakfast
foods" or buy theiii as Hour or bread,
let us see how far they go toward
making ii good diet.
In the first place they are a"good
fuel as well as' a cheap food. 'We
��� can get more working force for our
money from cereal grains than from
any other kind of rood. For comparison, if you-measure the number of
calories (fuel units) in a pound of
beefsteak yoti would find it to be 950,
a pound of raw potatoes would be
3(>9. On the other hand, a pound of
any of our.^common" cereals' would'
"average about 1700. The less money
we hare to spend, the more we* need
to depend upon cereals for our body
fuel. y    *'W
ln the second place, cereals furnish
material which will build and*" repair
���body tissue in uracil the same way as
do meat, fish, eggs, cheese, etc. For
instance whenwe have oatmeal for
breakfast, Ave do not need meat too,
and when Ave cook macaroni or rice
with milk and cheese, it takes, the
place of meat and potatoes. Indeed
the combination of iri'ilk and cereals
satisfies such a large part of our.hody
needs tliat we require only, fresh fruit
and vegetables and a moderate
'amount of meat, if you like, to make
not only a,palatable, but a coiBpletely
nutritious diet.
-We eat-"a great deal of wheat in
the form of bread, and to a lessor
ertent iiu cake, cookies, doughnuts,
etc. .Whole wheal flour is far superior to white flour as a food, but prob-

whiteness'-with purity, avb usually demand'white flour which is made from
the inside of the wheat kernel. White
flour also keeps better than whole
wheat flour. Thus wo' lose the min-,
eral content and the very valuable
substance necessary for our growth
known tit vitamin B which is-contained in the outer shell of "the wheat
kernel. For this reason and for the
reason Uiiit the grain covering serves
as You/hake iii theintestines, 7 we
should add bran to our diet eillitr
with our breakfast cereals or cooked
in the form..of bran muffins or in
other tasty 'ways. What has been
said in regard to the value of the
whole wheat grain applies equally lo
other cereals such as oatmeal, corn-
meal,   etc.:
