nounced by the Department of
Education, Victoria, on Wednesday.   Under  regulations  of tlie
department,   pupils  attending a
school of four or more divisions in
a district where a high school is
in  operation are   promoted   on
recommendation  of a committee
composed of the principals of the
elementary and high schools and
the inspector of schools.   All told,
4539  students  are  being issued
certificates on recommendation of
the promotion committee.
OThere sat for departmental examinations 3748 candidates, of which
.1746, or 46 per cent, were successful.   Of the number writing, 2097
were from rural districts, and 1143
of them, or 54 per cent, succeeded
in passing.   The balance,   1651,
were  from schools in the larger
centers, and 603, or 36 per cent,
were successful.'
The small percentage of passes
shown by candidates from ���the
larger schools is chiefly due to the
fact that the leading pupils of
such, schools were .promoted on
recommendation, and that those
who sSt for examination were,
with the exception of those competing for' the governor-general's
medal, composed largely of the
lower entrance pupils.
Iri all,. 6285 students will be
issued high school entrance certificates, a-- number which exceeds
by 587 fhe total for last year.
- For district 8, one. of the 10
districts into which the province
is divided for the purpose of the
governor-general's medals, the
prize winner is Joy 'Susan Hen-

Canada s Gams and Losses
Pn>p..rtlo!_..k> to lis* population Ch inula now'has tho largest favorable
trade balance-of any country ln tho "world. During Lho fiscal your ended
March III, l!)2(i, whilo Imports-of goods into Canada substantially increased,
'.tic :'.\iio."i ol' Canadian products and manufactured articles inci eased to a far
.ii.g._r nxiuiil, with the result thai daring the yoar exports exceeded imports
by ilu; hugi.- sum of $101,!;.I,-Hir>. This is the largest favorable trade balance
In ihe history of the .Dominion except in llie last of the war years, IMS, ���when
.-nonuous oxportailons of munitions and otlier war supplies at high war prices
xiolc place.
During the last fiscal year Canada not only enjoyed a favorable trade bal-
iiu-e within thc British Umpire, but if also had a favorable balance -with
ttproigii eou.'flries, iho adverse balance with the United Stales being wore than
ort'sel by favorable balances with other foreign countries. Tlie total of Canada's -foreign inula last year was $2,2ori,9S!),S(i!l. or about $250' for every man,
woman and child in tlie Dominion.
II: is this large favorable trade balance "which has contributed;so largely
to thc improvement in Canadian exchange and placed tho Canadian dollar
a i a premium in the .United Slates as .well as in other cotm trios.. It is. ji ssign
of I.lio returning prosperity,so strikingly in evidence throughout the country
sit the present lime and a promise of further ad.viu.ices in the future.
Record  Trade Balance
But while. Canada is thus mailing really remarkable progress in the mar-
lcels ol the world, it continues to suffer; heavy and fiuiio unnecessary and
.preventable losses at home. Of first importance, because, it is tlie most
Ht'j'ious, is the unnecessary loss of life from wholly preventable causes. In
previous articles in this column reference has been made to losses sustained
through disease which could be avoided by the exercise of proper precautions.
Atlention at this time may well be direct'ecUto the increasing.list of killed find
seriously injured tor life as a result of reckless automobile driving. Thc
newspapers are full of accounts of fatal motor accidents, nearly all of which
could have been avoided by the exercise of ordinary care. , Recently the Railway.'Commission of Canada issued a bulletin dealing with only one cause of
such accidents, namely, the dangerous practices of motorists and drivers of
other vehicles at railway crossings. This bulletin records the fact that the
Canadian'National and Canadian Pacific-railways' together reported 3G3 cases
of gross negligence by motorists at grade crossings within the last twelve
mouths, and those cases did not cover all crossings, but only-a selected few.
Oiie citizen is of much greater value to Canada than many thousands'oC
dollars worth of foreign lrade. Much life lost to Canada is a heavy economic'
loss to the country.
Largest Trade Balance Per Capita of
Any  Country  in the   World
Canada now has tho largest, favorable trade balance per capita ot any
country in tho world.
For the fiscal joar ended March 31,
11)26, Canada's favorable trade balance
amounted to ��-101,13-1,405, an increase
over thc previous year of $ LIS, 7 05,-
299. Only on one other occasion was
Lhc Dominion's favorable balance as
large, namely, the war year 19LS, when
it amounted to ?G62,(i37,2M. Anionic
the principal exports are agricultural
products whicli for the .12 months tinder review totalled in valuo ' over
SUOO.,000,000'. Of this amount grain and
grain products accounted for ?'JS-I,:
S-12,17G, most of which wore thc products of the fertile farm lands of
Western Canada,- whore about 100,-
000,000 acres still await cultivation, of
which 20,000,000 acres are uear railways and markets. Many of these
lands can he bought at prices ranging from ?:15 to ?20 an acre.
Neuralgia Conquered
Its Pain Destroyed
Results   Come
When    You
It Acts Quickly
Mr. W. T. Cretin way, formerly connected with tho Guide newspaper staff,
has written: "For twenty years Te
have used Nerviline in our homo, and
not for the world would we be without
it. As a remedy for all pain, earache,
toothache, .cramps and disordered
stomach, I lmow of no preparation so
useful and quick to relieve as Nerviline." Remember this, wherever
there is pain, rub on Nerviline, :uifl
you will get prompt results���35c at all

of centuries is wiped out and untold millions: of dollars of timber destroyed.
Sonic of IheseTircs arc started..by lightning or-other natural causes, hut many

It is not througli forest fires alones that Canada suffers.   "The fire fiend
is at work throughout the Dominion every d<iy in the year,
.thai Uie per capita* fire'loss of Canada ranks among the highest in the world.
Taking Canada as a whole, the annual fire loss is slowly decreasing, having
dropped from $54,890,000 hi 1922 to 548.282,000 in192;:, ft5,9(i<i,000 in; 192-1 and
"��-.10,7.12,000 'in'1920. But this decrease has been largely effected in Ontario
an.l Quebec, the decrease in the former province in the four years being over
g��S,000,0'00 and in Quebec ne:irly>-i,000,000. The record of the four Western
Provinces offers an unfavorable contrast. Fire losses west of the Croat
Lukes were ?ll,768,00b in' 1022, rising to ?13,SGD,000 in .1023, ?1.3,672;000 in
' m-J-l, and $12,508,000 in 1920. .Saskatchewan, Alberta and. Rrilish Columbia
all sustained heavier fire losses in 1925.than iu. 1922, while Manitoba showed a
decrease.      -."'.... '   ..'        ' . ���
Tlie besetting sins of-far too great a*proporlion of people in tills age and
counlry are wastefulness, carelessness,; recklessness, culminating- in a disregard for consequence's, and inevitably resulting not only in Individual and
nalional economic loss, but in untold suffering and much loss of life.

is that, the* ideas-of tlie great mass or
Tlriti'sh citizens' are -sound, -sensible
aiul moderate. Sooner or later resort is had to reasoning rather Ilia ii/to
violence: wherein is seen tlie fundamental' difference between -the British
temperament and that prevailing in
certain other countries. The second
fact is that in defence of common
rights and privileges, nil classes-will
at once unite. Our love of liberty aiuf
justice, our pride in Ihe Uritish Until-
lions and ideals, make highly repugnant to us the usurpations of dlc-
torltil minorities.���Kmpire Mail;

sometimes serious mistakes are made,

This at least is the declared opinion
of the Chief Constables' Association ol

special committee to investigate the
general results of interference by the
Ontario parole board with the course
of justice, aud that committee has reported to the effect that the records
show hat in many insances lliesc results are bad. Hardened, criminals

Don't Waste Water
During the hot weather it is
advisable to conserve as much
water as possible and by doing so
it will greatly help to avoid a
water shortage later in the season.
The Nelson Daily News gives thc
following advice on this subject:
"We can observe scrupulously
the city's water rules" regarding
sprinkling hours.
We can refrain from unnecessary hosing of sidewalks, and use
the broom instead.
We can watch the taps in our
houses and see that they do not
run unnecessarily.
If you 'want to cool a few
bottles of���well, ginger ale, we
can do so without filling the whole
bathtub and then .letting the
faucet continue to run.
When we take a bath we can,
with a little care get the water at
the right temperature first time
without having to let a lot of it
run away because it/is too hot or
too cold, and then fill it up again.
There are dozens of 'ways in
which citizens can assist in relieving the present situation.
Let's see if we can't all help.

up well. The alcohol by weight is about
4.25 per cent, and the extract 5.49 per
cent: with an original gravity of about
13.20. These analyses indicate further
that the Beers are of good quality, wholesome and free from any foreign substance.
