$.��* of the outstanding matters to engage fhe attention of .fariiament at
'its present session will bc the report of the Royal Gomnimissiou appointed to
��� 'inquire into tiie claims of the Provinces of New*Brunswick, Nova Scolia and
.-Prince. Edward'island* for better terms from tlie Dominion Government and. tho
-initiation of policies designed to overcome many of the difficulties from which
that section of the Dominion Ls suffertig.
Ttie report of the Commission was presented to Parliament on life day of
��� opening, while the Speecli from tlie Throne foreshadowed the introduction of
- Government legislation dealing with various recommendations contained' in the
The people of Canada as a whole will be found sympathetic to the taking
������..of any reasonable steps to promote the development and prosperity of the
.Maritime Provinces and to assist tlie Provincial Governments- aud peoplo to
solve their most acute problems and overcome their most pressing difficulties.
Tho Western Provinces will be found particularly sympathetic because people
-here fully realize that the extremes of' Confederation are confronted with
���j)x-obiems.fj*om whicli the central provinces of Ontario and Quebec arc quite
. free, and which the people there cannot understand and consequently do not
Freight rates, for example, have long been a live topic in the 'West, including not only what have been regarded in many quarters as excessive charges,
but complaints tliat unfair discrimination exists as between East and .West in
ihe matter of rates, and as between ..the scale of rates levied on various commodities.   The West lias waged a long battle on the subject of freight rates,
and the end is not yet.   It can, therefore, appreciate the importance of the
recommendation made in the report of the Maritime Commission that rates
-be reduced by 20 per cent on the Atlantic Division of the Canadian National
.Ptailway, and that the loss of revenue to- the railway be re-couped to it out of
vthe Dominion treasury, and that the C.P.E. be likewise re-imbursed. One of the
-arguments advanced in support if this recommendation is that the lnercolonial
Railway was built for strategic rather than commercial reasons and as n
result it suffers from excessive mileage. ... -7.
���7 If, however, special rates are 10 be established for one section of tho
Dominion, and the losses to the railways, nia.de good by the Dominion as a
whole, the door will be opened to demands for like treatment by other sections
-of tlie country.   _ ���''���'    :*'...* 7      ������-.-
The Commission further recommends substantial increases in the Federal
���subsidies to the three Maritime Provinces in order to assist thoso Governments
in tarrying on'tlicir functions aiul services, and iu this connection supports the
-contention that the Western Provinces have been differently and more favorably
treated. It is true the Western Provinces have been treated differently, because'
���all their natural resources have been withheld from them and in lieu thereof
they are paid cash grants, but whether this constitutes a more favorable
position is open to debate." However, re-opening the subject of Federal subsidies to one group of Provinces must, inevitably, lead to-a consideration of this
-question as it affects all Provinces.  11 the cost of government in the Maritimes
71s too great, it seems passing strange that the Duncan Commission did not at
least expressman opinion on the. advisability of a pinion of; these three small
/provinces under one Provincial Government. 7- ������*-..
.-��� Eecommedalions, suggestions, and quoted opinions as to Customs tariff
���changes designed to benefit the Maritimes'will undoubtedly cause widespread
���-discussion. A bonus on steel when Canadian coal is used in its manufacture is
.recommended; inferentially au increased duty on steel is suggested; a treaty
with the United States is advocated/ providing for the free admission of Canadian-fish aad pulp and paper products other than newsprint into the ^United
States.   In fact.the-report seems to favor a.ijoljcyjOigMi-duUesJ)y_,Canada:

"I consider Nerviline the best remedy for a cold, sore throat or tightness across"tlie chest," writes Miss
Lucy Mosher from Windsor, N.S,; "For

without Ne-rviline. I had a cold on
my chest that fourteen remedies
couldn't break up. I rubbed on Nerr

in certain other matters, us, Tor example, the development and raising of
agriculture out of its present depression, and' encouragement "and co-operation
in matters of immigration wil.li lhe Federal authorities, tlie Commission makes
���it quite clear that the responsibility rests rquarely on the Provinces themselves
Whatever may be'the outcome of the Commission's labors, or the nature
���of the-legislatiM to be passed ;tt Ott;iAya,it is^^to
hope, confidence and vigor will animate the people of tlie Provinces by the
sea*, and. that they will find encouragement in Uie steps taken in their behalf,
for themselves to grapple more vigorously than over with the problems which,
in the final analysisrmusi bo solved by tlie people chiefly concerned. The people of the west have found this to'bo-true, and ..they have through their great
co-operative enterprises and the application of -tlicir own energies succeeded to
tin amazing extent in bettering their conditions and advancing the development
and prosperity of these Western-Provinces.

No Purchasers For
Ex-Kaiser's Letter
Put Up. at Ruction But no Bids
Apparently the transfer from Berlin
to Doom has destroyed the value of a
I-Iohonzoilern signature. At a recent
auction sale in Germany, 'letters of
Schiller and Goethe fetched 330,150
ancl 500,000 marks _ each. A fourline
stanza iii the' writing of Uelno was
sold for 1,4-10 marks. Signatures aud
letters of Bismarck were, valued all
the way from G up to 600 marks,
though a letter of General Ludendorff's
commanded no more than 10 marks.
When a letter of the ex-Kaiser's was
put up there was: not a single bidder
for it, at any price. The old guard of
Imperialist Junkers insist that the letter was recognized as being so valuable that nobody could afford to offer
a 'fitting price' for it. This view, however, was not si: ared by Republicans.

When tho road-building season
closed, 122 contractors who have been
working in' Saskatchewan this year
finished approximately .,'150 miles of
newly-graded roads at an-estimated
expenditure of. ?-100,000. This will
make a lotal of about 2,000 miles of
the program mapped out by tlie department some years ago, which will
bo completed when about 7,000 miles
of trunk roads have been completed. ���
Tlio mileage this yoar.is spread over
a wide area in Saskatchewan. "Whore

Year Predicted
Scientists Believe  1927 Will   be Outstanding in Many Ways
���  ThJj eye of man will behold new and
' wonderful things in Llie year 3927, according to leaders in sclent ilie fields.
In a symposium of prognostications
compiled by Sumner JS". Llossom, editor for Popular Science Monthly, Rear
Admiral Bradley A. Fiske. retired, predicts that iu 1027 important changes
in ocean transportation will be the result of an increased use of Diesel engines. Pulverized coal, lie says, will be
another factor inducing Improvements
in oceanic travel.
Germany, Italy and Spain will increase their shipping, Germany attaining the posilion held before the
war, he predicts. In��time, other nations will blockade American trade
nnd eventually seize American wealth.
ln agriculture,, as foreseen by William Crocker, botanist and director of
Ihe Boyce Thomson Institute for Plant
ltesearch at Yonkers, N.Y., there is
more cause for rejoicing.
1 "Tlie stage is set," says Crocker,
"for large advances in plant science.
Wo can expect improved varieties
'of greater resistance to disease and
insects. We may look for better insecticides and fungicides. Advances
are duo in anticipation of ultra violet
rays to plant growth."
In automobile engineering, Edward
V. llickenbackcr, automobile racer
and aviator, foresees "smaller, higher
speed, and lighter engines," which
"will result in greater economy,
shorter wheel base ami lighter cars
at less cost."
In anthropology, Clark Wissler, curator at the American Museum of Natural History, thinks there will be
new finds ol fossil man in Europe/ In
North America, he sees Lhe possibility
of discovering fossil proof of the association between man and mastodon
and other extinct fauna,
Astronomical calculations that may
be completed in 1927. as seen by Captain Edwin T. Pollock, superintendent
of the Washington United States Naval Observatory, include a start "toward proving or disproving the theory
that the continents do move and that
our moon came front the Pacific
"If it is found that continents move,
or that parts of the earth expand or
shrink, it may show, as 'some believe,
tliat it Is the earth ancl not the moon
that is erratic in motion," he said.
Regular psychological consultation
service for aiding students is a possibility foreseen bv Albert Edward YVig-
gan, biologisi.
Discovery of islands in tlie Arctic
regions is a possibility in Arctic exploration, according to Yiilijalmar
in geology, Theodore J.'Hoover, of*
Leiand  Stanford  university,  foresees
likelihood of a general recognition of
the fact that American   mineral   resources are not inexhaustible.
'Moderate Eating'
After Middle Age the Appetite Should
Be Held in Ch��ck
An observant man, wno was also a
philosopher, once said thai physical
fitness .and human happiness were
epitomized in having a keen appetite
for breakfast. From the purely gastric
angle of view he was probably right.
But tliat was before the day of the
dietician, and anterior also to the
recognition of the bulging waist line
as a signal ot danger. Today the insurance companieifare finding,it worth
while to issue seductively worded
brochures with tho single object in
view of winning men and women
away from heavy and hydro-carbonaceous meals; and they are doing il
with their own balance sheets iu mind.
Out' of a bitter experience, John. D.
Rockefeller has said that when men
of large moans try to gratify (he palate
with luxuries tliey find that a billion
dollars won't buy them a' good digestion.
Edward AY. Dole's contribution to
this subject is that a man's most important birthday is his fiftieth; for at
Lhat point lie is not only looking back-
on the majority ol his years, but must
look forward to altered habits. For
one thing, he must eat less. If he
would keep his arteries responsive and
resilient'he must avoid -straining thenv
by needless pressure from tho vital
centres. If, as seems truc, tho average
of human life On this continent has
been raised by over eight years during the past two decades, it has been
due in no small measure to a better
appreciatlon-of Lhe relationship of
moderate eating to longevity.

Gave Generously To Charity
CU'een Alexandra Did Not Spend Much
. on Herself
Popular impressions are that queens
and princesses have wardrobes that
would excite tho envy and admiration
of every woman. But the likelihood
is that there are thousands of women
in every country, particularly in the
United States, who dress far smarter
and much moro expensively than tho
average blue-blood.
A lad,y-in-waiting to Queen Alexandra has given out tliat after the Dowager Queen's death only two dresses
were found in her wardrobe. Ancl one
of them had been renal red.
The fact is tliat kings and queens,
in spite of-fhe large allowances made
to Lliem by lhe stale, are comparatively poor persons. Liko Governors-
General aud others witli official positions to discharge, they have to spend
nearly as much as they get, and sometimes more, in entertaining and in giving to charities.
Queen Alexandra all her days was
a generous supporter of charities and
benevolent, institutions. During her
last years she seldom wont out. Therefore, she rubbed along with the minimum of a wardrobe. She probably
gave what she didn't need to charity.
Queens are very human beings if
one could only see their private family

was on, a foreign ambassador was admitted to the presence of Queen Yic-
toria, who was a very great lady .us

Clay urns hollered to contain the

the urris, which were found two feet
below the surfa.ee, lay two stone hammers and two stone knives.
All were contained in what is believed to-be a clay casket, tiiough ihc
workmen, lacking knowledge of the
importance of the discovery, did great

archaeologists was called to the digging.
The grave was found on a small
hill and it is believed that others exist
in tho immediate neighborhood. The
director of the Potsdam Museum, examined tlio urns, declared Ihey dated
I'rom tho early stone stage and were
the first type ever found in Germany.-
Crude figures were drawn in frieze
around the urns and ilie covers were
provided with rims to keep thorn in

Around one large urn wore five
smaller urns, presumably containing
food and "drink for the departed. Unfortunately, only two of these were

To wish to serve Ilim in one place
rather thau in another, by such and
