ncreasing With Advent of U.S.
Visitors to London
Kadiophono talks with America
from London are rapidly increasing
with the advent of United States,
visitors. It has been found that a
largo proportion, of the calls from
London were made by American
business men slaying there. Twenty-
six calls to New York and elsewhere
in the United Stales were made in
one day last week from one London
hotel and all by American business
men. An American staying at a
leading hotel paid for his telephone
talks lo Chicago four and one-lialf
limes as much as his hotel bill. One
conversation alo'ne cost him $275.
' Every citizen is,'or-* should bo, interested iu all things pertaining to the
development and prosperity of Canada, -whether ho viuws it'from a broad
imtrioUc fin-1 national standpoint or the moro selfish one of how his individual business ami welfare is alleclcd. Anything any citizen can do' to advance
national interests ami progress is, Iherefore, to bo expected of him.
11 is generally recognized that it is in the interests of a country to.
develop its export trade to a poiutobeyond'the volume and value of-.its
import trade; in other words, to'create what Is known as a favorable balance
of trade. Export trade is made up of those articles produced or manufactured
In Canada and sold in other countries; import trade consists of produce and
goods of other countries brought into Canada and sola to its people. That is,
Canada must send Its money abroad to pay for imports, while on the other
hand, foreign money is paid fo Ur; for goods we export. In practice, of course,
exports really pay for our imports; hence llie strength of developing exports
in excess cf iinjiorls.
There is, however, one exception to this general rule. Money itself when
imported adds 10 the -wealth of tho country much the same as exports ol
���produce and goods adds to it. And il is immaterial the-form in -which such
money may come.       t
Of laic years a new Industry has developed on the North American
conlineiTl, although it is aa old industry in Franco. Switzerland, and some
other lands. We refer to Tourist traflic, which has long becn a source of
great income to France and Switzerland'. Tourist trallic has, with the advent
of lhc automobile and the building of good roads, become ono of the major
industries-of Canada, and, unlike most imports, iho more tourists wo.can
import the richer Canada is made. It follows that everything in reason
stiuuld he done hy Canadian--, to encourage au increase in such unfile.
Tourists come to' Canada for a variety of reasons. Thcy arc glad to get
away from tho excessive heal, of thc south in summer; with the development
of so many large cities iu lhe United States those 'who can afford lo do so
are anxious to i!ee to the woods, to tho lakes and river resorts; some come
for the purpose of hunting aud fishing; some with the idea of investigation
of Canada's resources ana possibilities and investment therein. All in thcir
travels look for comfort, pleasure and beauty of surrounding.-..
The uiountais scenery and -winter sports of Switzerland arc lhal coun
try's drawing cards. Canada can orfcr just us fine mountain scenery as
Switzerland, and un infinite variety of other natural beauty -which the land
of thc Swiss lacks. Canada's national park* aro without exception among
the finest in the world.
llut to' got to the mala point of this article. Tourists travelling oui
provincial and country highways, en route hither and thither, desire 10
follow thc most attractive ard beautiful roads. Bare, treeless levels do not
attract, but -winding trails and roads through little valleys and park-like
counlry make a powerful appeal. II is in these districts, too, that a profusion
of wild {lowers ilouvish, .making the whole countrywide beautiful and a
constant surprise and joy fo lhe visitor.
Uut these wild flowers are in danger. People exclaim at thc beauty of
a certain patch a'nd forthwith proceed to break off the blooms or even tear
the giants up by the roots. In a few short hourr, they aro ���withered and
thrown away. Had they been left undisturbed thoy would have given
pleasure to scorns of passing tourists, adding to thc attractiveness of thc
route along which they bloomed. Not. ouly yo, but they would havo reappeared next year and by scattering seed tar. and wide would havc greatly
increased in nurnbor. Thc serious thing is that through destruction their
beauty was lost, not for ono season alone, but for all, time, and tho loveliness
wliich marked a spot this year Is bereft, of its charm in future years.
The moral h:  Stop tlits thoughtless picking of our prairie and forest
wild flowers.   Try to realize that these wild flowers mean not only beauty
to' our country bul that they attract visitors and have an effect in adding

Canadian Farmer
Tells His Experience
"Les" Booth, widely known Ontario farmer, and a sich
man for 20 years, suffered daily, only half alive*
Nchv strong, robust, vigorous, credits new
found health to Tanlac
' Though popularly known as "Les,"
Mr. liooth's correct first name is
Georgo. His homo is at 271 Pcrlh St.,
Brockville. For tho past three years
ho has enjoyed vigorous health but
what ho endured before then is best
told in Ids own words. "For twenty
years my arms, shoulders, back and
hips, ached with rheumatism," said
Mr. Booth. "Often I had to quit work
entirely nnd I remember one bad spell
that kept mo in bed for six months.
7 "My case got to bc so chronic that
the help ran the farm. I was practically helpless. Even my wrists ancl -
hands would swell up so that I couldn't
write my name. I dreaded bedtime,
for I got no rest, but lay there in
agony, waiting for morning. Nervous
spells *would seizo me and I would
tremble all over like a leaf.- I couldn't
get any benefit from my food and had''
to force, myself to cat. My weight was
far below normal.
"Three years ago I decided to givo.
Tanlac a good trial, for nothing else
had helped me. I could scarcely bc-
. lieye such results were possible _ as
those Tanlac soon showed. The aching
stopped, my appetite came back and _
I could cat heartily. My nights became more restful, too, and I slept
soundly. I gained 16 pounds which I
still retain, and I now work-hard outdoors from 8 to 10 hours a day. I never
liave an ache. It's hardly believcable!

Relief Can Only Come Through
Better Blood���Liniments of
No Use
In no other disease docs the blood
become thin so rapidly as in rheumatism. Not only does it become Ihin
but if is loaded with impurities���
rheumatic poisons. Without the proper treatment these poisons increase,
the inflamed joints swell and tho patient becomes a cripple. Most trea4'
ments simply aim to keep down tho
pain, hence with every unfavorable
condition a renewed attack follows.
To cast out rheumatism the blood

be done through a course of Dr. Williams" Pink Pills, which have a specific action on the blood, giving it

The superior quality of northern
grown seed Is nowhere more strikingly shown than in the success obtained with Canadian alfalfa seed.
For a long "time It wa3 found diflicult to grow alfalfa successfully in
many parts of Canada, but the development of an ample supply of hardy
strains of seed has, to a certain extent, solved the problem of wlnter-
killisg and the Dominion's alfalfa
crop increased from 238,000 acres in
1920 to 858,000 acres in192G.

Untold Wealth in Dead Sea

Says Chemists
Tho Bead Sea, so salty that fish

prospects of conning to aggressive
life as a chomical production centre.
Scientists who investigated for the
Hebrew University have completed
a report for Dr. Chaim Weizmann, ils
president, who is now In the United
States, showing this historic salt
lake to bo as fabulously rich in mineral salts as if is in Biblical lore.
The chemists recommend that in
connection with the harnessing of
the Jordan Kivcr for power, now under way, steps may be taken to utilize the treasures of this inland sea.
."Ways and moans to carry out tho
recommendations ^ are under consideration,
The Dead Sea, 793 feet below the
level of the Mcditerrasoan, contains
25 per cent, saline element in comparison with 4.G por cent, in ocean
wator._ It is so heavy that animal
bodies will not sink in it. The report says -it contains in millions of
tons, potash, -2,000; magnesium
bromide, DS0; magnesium chloride,
22,000; ordinary salt, 11,000, and calcium 2,000.
The chemists estimate there Is
enough bromide to last the entire
world 35,000 years at the present
rate of consumption, and enough potash for 1,000 years. They also believe lhat production near .the ancient site of Sodom ancl Gomorrah
would bo cheaper than anywhoie
else in-'the world because of the intense heat, whicli causes rapid
evaporation. Tho Jordan River pours

sweetly "A Wee. Bit Shy" and was

Harris again caused great laughter
with "Oli! Josia!"
Tho. second playlet entitled "Thc
Train To Morrow" starring Mrs_ Pan-;
nell with Mrs. Hawkes and Mrs,

Town" followed by a clever recitation
���The. Mowers Song" by T. A. Clark.
Juan Puddy with girls chorus sung
"Me To" and was greatly applauded.
