Canada s Next Stage Ol Development
o There aro many coun trios with larger populations, grealer accumulations
of wealth, and much more highly developed in an industrial sense rhan Canada,
but already this Dominion lias achieved fifth place among the commercial
nations of lho world. Since tho war, and more especially during tho past few
years, the trade o[ Canada has enormously expanded,���tlu> percentage of
growth Cur surpassing that of any other country.
it is a pertinent question to' ask:'Can Canada rojain for itself ihc proud
position already attained, and is it. possible for this Dominion to move
steadily forward from-firth place to fourth, to third, ancl ultimately lo the
very front rank?
Judged fro'm the standpoint of its geographical position on the world's
highway between Europe and the Orient, or judged by ihe extent and
variecy or ii.s natural resources, whetherof the field, the 1'orosi. the miuo, ihc
fisheries, and water-powers, the answer can be given by an emphatic
anirm.'itlvc. In all'these respects, Canada does not occupj a .secondary
position to any. country on earlh. ��� __
Canada practically controls ihc world's supply of such essential
commodities' as nickel and asbestos.. It is.now,-in ils infancy, llie world's
greatest manufacturer of newsprinl* and tho -world's greatest exporter of
wheal. II has steadily increased, its gold output until now ir ranks as the
world's Third'largest producer. *'-.''--'
Notwithstanding* ;fll these advantages, can'Canada ever hup*, to-challenge
the position of Croat JLiriUdn and the United States as the world's-greatest
commercial nations, and, it so, what is essential*to'achieve that result? -
Not only in order to attain a still higher and stronger position, but to
retain what has already been won, it is necessary that Canada should take
certain advance steps. Up to the present time this couutry has been chiefly
concerned with those domestic problems ancl internal affairs involved in the
early settlement and development "'df the country from-, a raw territory into an
organized state. Attention has been devoted to matters of transportation, to
}he first stages iu the development of natural-.-resomcos, to laying the
essential foundations of any country. This piouper stage is passing. Canada !
lias roundi itself, ancl its future now depends upon the place, it can make for
itself among the nations in'finance, in trade and commerce.
The development of our wealth", or natural resources must bo Uie basic
foundation upon which to erect our future national structure. These- resources !
constitute the Dominion's greatest economic asset, and tlu-ir development!
should proceed along the.most approved scientific lines in order lhat there i
may be a minimum, ol" waste,   rt is'not. sufficient that we cut down forests j
rtiid -sell "lumber and pulpwood/, or that we dig nickel, or asbestos, or gold
out of tho ground.    We must utilize'these resources to their fullest extent

easily result in discoveries and improved methods'which will yield lens and
even hundreds of millions lo the Dominion.    *
. Canada is an up-to-date country, but in order.Io retain that reputation
it must follow the most up-to-date methods aii along the line. Jt is not
sufllciont. that goods "made in Canada" or articles "produced, in Canada" be
good; Ihey must be the very best the world can offer. ���    ' ���   -
Coupled wiih ihe maintenance' of scientific research, rhe utilization to
the ulmosl of our own natural resources; and'-''the* production "of nothing but
the host, the industrial ancl co'ir-ihercial interests of Canada must be alert and
unite in the adoption of the most wide-awake and effective senilis methods,

understood, submit to Parliawpnt at its next, session to provide for important
expansions of thc activities of the National Research Council, as-well as the

Can   Be   Strengthened   Through
the Use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills-   "
Wonderful is thc process by which
the chemistry of the body changes
the food we ,eat into blood. And the
whole of our well-being depends upon
this being maintained clay after day,
year in and year out. Sometimes the
process becomes faulty, and then
food begins to poison the blood instead of feeding it. This i.s followed
by all the pangs of .indigestion,, such
as gas on the stomach, pains around
the heart, often nausea after eating,
aud a dislike for all kinds of food.
Tlie only way to overcome .these
troubles ls to tone up the digestion
so ihat you can assimilate all your
food. To do' this you havo onlv to
take -Dr.- Williams' Pink Pills. A
short course of these pills will quickly tone up lhe stomach and banish
indigestion. Here is a bit of convincing proof given by airs. Chas. Ladner, i'lllerslie, P.E.I..- who says: ���
"For some years I -was a sufferer
from stomach' trouble. Every thing I
ate caused .distress, sour stomach and
belching. I could not eat meat-.or potatoes, and I grew weak and nervous.
No medicino seemed to help me until f was persuaded lo take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, sand these simply
worked wonders. J took the pills
l'aiihl'ully for a couple of months by
which time every symptom 0f the
trouble disappeared, and there .has
not since been the slight est symptom
of stomach 4-roublo. No wonder I
praise Dr. Williams* Pink Pills.".
You can gel these pills through any
medicine dealer or hy   mail    at    50
cents a box from The Dr. "Williams'
Medicine   Co..   Brockville,   Ont.

Remember Canadian Soldiers
Graves In Shorncliffe Cemetery Are
Decorated Every Year
Annually for eleven years past the
school children of Iiythe, Folkestone
and .surrounding districts have made
a pilgrimage to Shorncliffe cemetery
nearby and have decorated tho graves
.of the Canadian soldiers tliere.    '
An account of    this    year's    ceremony-, which took place on June 22,
appears in a cor-!' of the Iiythe Re-
- porter which a reader has been kind
"enought  to   send   to  the   Star.      A

'. W.   N.

At the recent decoration ceremony, it appears from the iiythe lie-
porter, the mayors of both- towns
were present and delivered eulogies
of the Canadian army, -adjuring the
children in their audience to be true
to the best British traditions. They
announccd-.tliat they had arranged to
have the decoration o'f the graves
carried on to perpetuity.
After giving an account of their addresses, the report goes on: "Trumpeters sounded the ,'Last Post' antl
'.Reveille.' To the. solemn strains of a
funeral march the children filed from
their positions, and, in a seemingly
endless procession, placed their floral
tributes upon-the graves as they filed
reverently and slowly among them.
The- hand continued playing. Appropriately enough, 'Tha Maple Leaf
and 'O Canada' were among the tunes
rendered., and all the while the children were paying their humble homage. At the conclusion of the ceremony, when the national anthem was
played, there was not a g^ave neglected. Each bore its wealth of flow-

A really sporting expedition is that
which Dr. Arthur Torrancs will make-
next autumn to Central Africa. Most

Self-Styled Oil Engineers. Making

'The United States Department of

accompanied by the editor and J.
Holmes motored to Canyon City. At
that point was situated the camp of \V.
E. McArthur's pole drive. The party
left, the auto in camp ancl proceeded
through the woods to the river in
order to get some first hand information regarding a business venture
which if successful will mean a great
deal to this District. '**'.-
There has been log drives ancl tie
drives but the driving of long cedar
poles is a new industry around here.
When you consider the distance
from Christian Valley to Midway (50
miles) through log jams, over:_ riffles,
through canyons, etc., it-is no task for
the faint hearted. The veteran logger
E..L. Steves is in charge and is supported by a first class crew of river
drivers so there is every reason to believe they will bring this venture to a
successful termination.

Away back in the late sixties thousands
of acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price���then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within lhe scope of an average lifetime:
What the young growth of to-day will be
worth sixty years from now.is beyond computation if it h protected from fire and

To study game problems in many
parts of 'the province, members of the
Game Conservation Board under
Chairman M. B. Jackson, K.C.; will
start on a comprehensive tour of the
province this week. They . will visit
Prince Rupert and many points along
the Canadian National Railways, turning south at Prince George to hold
meetings in Cariboo towns. From
there they will go south to Kelowna*to
hear Okanagair'sportsmen.
' 'The purpose of the tour is to' give
thc board direct contact with sportsmen, trappers and others," Mr. Jackson explained. "In the north we are
particularly anxious to see how our
new system of registering trap lines is
working out. We are also interested
in the virtual disappearance of grouse
in many parts of the north."

was a dance at each of the two
pavilions. Pearson's orchestra played
at Biner's while Werner's orchestra
played at Butter-field's. The Lake is a
very cool place to dance so the public
is availing itself of the opportunity,
many people coming from the-American side as ��� well as from long distances in Canada.

File Turnover Tax by Tenth
Victoria.���The last day for riling
returns under the new turnover, or
gross income tax, is August 10th.
. The Finance Minister says that, this
being a new tax, every consideration
will be given to taxpayers, especially
those who suffer physical or other disability. Dr. MacLean hopes all will file
by then. He says, in a statement
issued at Parliament Buildings, that
tho public response has been very
gratifying, and that the tax is regarded more favorably than the personal
property tax it replaces.
"As  the department realizes,"  said
' the  minister,  that some  uncertainty
and misunderstanding is bound to crop
��� up in' respect of the first returns
under a new tax of this kind, due
allowance will be made for this, and
strict enforcement of the penalty
clauses will be postponed for a few
days, but under no circumstances can
this be extended beyond August 10th.
Jt is hoped that any who may have
overlooked the .filing of their returns
will avail, themselves of this opportunity."
