She Was An Angel, Alright
_ A man unaccustomed to praising

call her an angel.
"Maggie," he said one morning,
"you are an angel," and she felt

ask him why she had been so

\Vnere Canada Leads the   World
Canada exports more wheat ihan any oilier country in the world. It
produces most of the world's supply of nickel. Within tlio la.si two years it
lias passed'tho United States In the production of newsprint aud is no-w the
greatest exporter in the world. Isolated facts, siu-h as ilio.se, are becoming
*. coiutnoaknow ledge amongst Canadians, but it is doubtful if, as yet, ihey
fully apprecatc the gigantic strides made by the Honihiion in gaining a
position of first, importance among'Hip trading ration.-, of the "world.
The jubilee year of Confederation is a good lime to' lake siock or our
national achievements, not that vre. should become boastful as a people, bul
as an encouragement and an incentive to still gicater things. It has been
charged that Canadians suffer from on iniVnoriiy complex; that -we ave more
inclined lo belittle our country and its possibilities than lo boast of thorn;
that, as a consequence, we are apt to enteitain doubts and be fearlul of the
future instead of displaying confidence and courage
7 Mt is a good thing, therefore, to sometimes gel a  glimpse of ourselves
ns others see us.   There is inspiration in such uibuiCb as. the following:
The National Foreign Trades Council of Xev York, in n  recent statement, says Canada has led all nations in iiu-rcji��c- of external trade muco

Canada's per capita ���wealth  liad  grown  from  $1,100 in  J OOP,  to  ?2.10G jn
192G���a record unequalled bv anv other nation in history.
The National Bureau of Itosearch of ilu- ("nil oil Runes recently published the results of 11 years' trading, showing that Canada bad enjoyed
more prosperity than any other nation
��� During the years coveml by Hiese statements, the Western Provinces
of Canada have been transformed from being a vast area, *\w'.h a spaise
population and a meagre product ion, into a coiiuuunily of over two million
peoplo and with an agricultural production ot such magnitude as to command the attention of the whole world, and constituting a laolor to bo
reckoned -with in all ihe ���world markets.
The development of the AVest has had its effect on the ivsf of Canada,
as is well recognized, but "Western people possibly do not fully appreciate
the rapid growth and development which, bas tak'.n place in the older provinces iii' the east. Manufacturing pioduclion in Canada has grown from
211 millions of dollars in 100L to 1.311 millions in 1!>25, ancT> in export of
manufactured products expanded in the same time by 2,729 per cent. Today
Canada exports some millions of dollars worth of manulacuued goods more
than she imports, a coinplele reversal of the situation, as recently as five
years ago.
Canadian manufacturers are beginning lo profit from thc lessons of tlie
past. They realize thai, (lie people ot Canada as a whole will not stand for
protective, tariffs so high thai tliey are prohibitive, and tbat the tendency
is in thc direction of lower rather Ihan higher tarilf. Tliey now know thcy
.must rely ou something more than a protective fai-itr to en.-ure success and
make profits. As a result, they have scrapped much obsolete machinery, have
adopted improved manufacturing methods, have noi only cultivated the home
market better through the giving of real service, but Hiey liave aggressively
entered foreign markets and have built up a woith-wliile export trade. AH
theh- eggs are no longer in one basket.
They are beginning fo appreciate lhc wisdom and strength of a
Canadian policy of negotiating trade treaties with other countries, and lo
recognise and accept tlie fact that international trade cannot be aH om>
sded; that, in a word, it Canada is to sell largely in foreign markets, she
must, in turn, buy in those markets. Canada's manufacturers and financiers
aro also, to au increasing extent, investing in the development of the
natural resources of the .Dominion-instead oi relying on tho importation of
raw and semi-manufactured materials which Ihe Dominion itself can supply.
If is. because of a growing recognition and amplication of those truths
More Hungarians Will

New Settlers Are All Accustomed to
Farm Work
From March of this year until October, tho number of Hungarian
immigrants to be settled in AVestern
Canada by tho Canadian Hungarian
Colonization Board will number about
2,500, according to Dr. J. Ujvary,
Winnipeg, president of the Board.
Hungary, liko Canada, is an agrj-
cullcral counlry, Dr. Ujvary explain-
eded and the immigrants that are
brought out here are all accustomed
lo farm work. "The farmers here,
report lo the Board the number of
laborers they require and the order
for that number is sent to Hungary."
Ur. C J vary said, Since thc war, he
explained, most of thc Hungarians
who came to this country wero very
poor and could not think of buying
land at first. Tliey were therefore
placed on farms as laborers until thcy
earned sufficient money to start out
for themselves. Occasionally, the tloc-

Rural Land Values
and Rural Credit
Latest Development
In Plastic Surgery
(By C. W. Peterson)
Canada is th.e only important agricultural country in the world without
systematized rural land credit ma
chinery. This situation has a distinct
bearing on the colonization of our vacant lands. Across the lino the
Federal Land Banks supply rural
mortgage funds on a basis of 6 per
cent, interest ancl on long term repayment. This system is in an extremely healthy condition (here and
it is difficult to see liow Canada can
appeal to United States farmers to-
settle in this country, without being
in a position to offer Ilium similar
economic faclitics for long* term
A commission recently made some
investigations into systematized rural
credit machinery and in the final ro-
port slated lhat "the whole plan is
for a method wliich would not en
courage speculation in land, but one
which would make farmlsg moro attractive to those wlio were eager io
worlc." The .acceptance in other
countries of the long-term land
mortgage system with amortization
provisions, has becn a most valuable
factor in the closer settlement of
land. II has reduced charges for interest, given security to both mortgagor and mortgagee, and, by its
tendency to stabilize laud values, has
diminished laud speculation. The
stabilization of land values is one of
the by-producis of a rational, rural
land credit system. ' Incidentally, il
is also one of the crying needs of our
western country where the crazy
fluctuations of land values has done
more to demoralize agriculture than
all other causes combined.

Minister ir"   Railways   Says   Country
Developing in That Direction
That Canada's development within
the next 2G years v. ill be northerly,
is the opinion of the Hon, Charles A.
Dunning, Minister of Railways ana
Canals, expressed recently in addressing the Liberal Women's Association
of Ottawa.
"Co north, young maiv is the slogan of lhe future," said Mr. Dunning, "and the task of Canada ana
Canadians now is to continually apply ourselves in an endoavov to
broaden thc band of our population." 'Mr. Dunning saw reason foi
great optimism in the closing in of
that gap north of the Circat Lakes,
and with the trend north in almost
every province of Canada. In going
north today there is being discovered and developed resources otherwise unknown. "This northern
trend," be said, "will produce an
ever-widening opportunity for young
Canadians, is closing lhe gap . between the East aud West, and will
tend to balance the economic value
of Canada as a whole."
"Canada needs diversity of occupation," continued thc Minister, "and
an opportunity for the product of oui
schools and universities."
But Gear Shift on Locomotive Proves

enough to note. II is strange it hah
not been done   before.     The   35,000
horse-power locomotive now has    it.
It has been adopted in the construction o'f the   newest    electric   giants
that will haul Tenusylvauia railroad
trains, both freight   and   passenger.
These monsters, with a driving axle
load of-75,000 pounds, will of course
noi bc regularly  slowed down  and
speeded np by running through three
speeds, as is the case of the automobile. Thc system   works   this   way.
Until now il has been necessary for
a railroad to equip itself with a fleet

er to haul  freight, the first fleet of
wheel, the other   slow but hard pul
