peace and "quietness in the Bluebird menage we are sorry to say,
that we were wrong. Indeed it
appears that the cold had frightened ,pur little friends away and
it was only on Sunday that they
ventured to re-commence building their new home. As is usually
the case, the "Mrs" is doing all
the hard work while his "nibs" is,
well, we'll say, supervising it. Of
course being such a handsome
chap one can hardly expect him
to soil his hands with such common labor as moving in the fur-
niture. We trust he will keep
watch carefully and we have
noticed he has had soma trouble
keeping Mr. and Mrs. Swallow
away from his own front door.
We expect he was afraid they

. The -development of Canada is entering, in fact has already entered a
new phase and oue which holds promise of adding enormously lo the
population, wealth, and economic, strength of the Dominion, ln all the
provinces, with tho exception of the Maritimes, tho attention or governments and people aro turned northwards.
The history of Canadian growth during tlio first half cuitury of Confederation records development upon east aud west lines, beginning with the
acquisition by the newly-born Dominion of the Hudson's Bay Co. lauds ot
tho west and thc building of the Canadian Pacific Kail way; ihen came tlio
construction or the Canadian Northern; and finally the projection of tho
National Transcontinental and Grand Trunk Pacific across the continent.
Practically all traflic moved east and west, aud in 1 lie.se western provinces
a long roundabout journey was frequently necessary ln oj-der lo travel from
one place to another only a compaialively short distance apart on a north
and south liner'
As a result of Ihis early and quite natural programme; of development,
Canada became as a counlry, so far as settlement and trade was concerned,
a narrow strip stretching all the way from the. Atlantic to tho Pacific, but
consisting of fewer people than aro to he found in European countries which
in area are smaller than Canadian provinces. Canada had length but it.
lacked depth, a condition which made for weakness as a national unit
becauso of iho great distances separating lhe people and leading 1o a too
great diversity of interests, a lack of knowledge of the needs and problems of
the different sections,---Maritimes, Ontario' and Quebec, the Prairie "West, i.he
Pacific-slope,���a resultant sectional rather than a national viewpoint. Always
there existed the possibility of Ihis thin thread snapping at some point.
It is, therefore, a" matter of uatlonal satisfaction that Canada is now on
the threshold of its second groat development,���a, development northwards
which will give the Dominion what, it has hitherto lacked, depth as well as
length. From all quarters, governmental, financial, manufacturing, comes the
confident prediction thai the next two, or three decades will witness a complete transformation in this respect, and hardly a week passes that :-on_e
new enterprise involving northern development is not reported.
Development works, financed by Canadian, Uritish asd United States
capital, and involving au investment of close upon one billion dollars, are
under way iu Quebec which will result iu the establishment of great industrial plants, the employment.' of tens of thousandajoP men, the creation of now
cities and towns, and an enormous expansion in the trade of the Dominion.
. These arcpracllcally all to the north of present setllcd areas.

Who   Risked    Lives " to
British  Soldiers Receive
i-V-tir heroic French women
concealed British soldiers from the
Germans for months' and even yeais
at the risk of their own lives, have
received London's tribute .of praise
and gratitude at-the Mansion House.
Before a big assembly of Brilisn
and French Staff Officers and subscribers lo the fund raised in their
behalf, the Lord Mayor presented to
limes. Julie Baudhuin, Bclmont-
Gobert, Angelo Lesur and Louise
Cardon annuity certificates and illuminated addresses sotting forth
Great Britain's acknowledgment of
their devotion.
It was a ceremony which vivdly
recalled ihe World War, and il had
"a poignant climax when an English
father suddenly kneeled to kiss the
shoes of Mme. Cardon who for thirteen months had concealed his son
behind the Gorman lines. -
After all that time the son, Corporal Hull of the Eleventh Hussars,
was betrayed. Tho Germans shot
him and condemned Mme. Cardon to
death,-a sentence which later was
commuted lo twenty years' of haru
labor.   ,
Her husband escaped only to lead
an existence of great suffering until
the armistice and then to' die, a victim of   his   courage   in   helping   to
���harbor the young soldier.
Af the closing scene, when thc
Marsellaise crashed oui in honor ot
tlie heroines of France, followed by
tho British national anthem,' tears
glistened in th.e eyes of all tour women and few iu lho audience remained unaffected.
An interesting exhibit in the hall
of the Mansion House was the famous oak wardrobe in which Mme.
Belmont-Gobert hid Trooper Patrick
Fowler of tlio Eleventh Hussars for
more than throe years.

Benefactor To
Human Race
.Founder of Antiseptic 'Surgery Made
Many Serious  Operations
Macaulay, tlie  most    brilliant    oi
'the    Victorian    historians,   declared
that the greatest  benefactor to ,thn
human race was the man who grew
two blades of grass where ouly ont.
had grown .before. But what then is'
the due meed of him who is credltcn
with having.saved more human lives
in the latter days of the 11111616011111
century than'were lost in tho wars
of the hundred years that preceded
it? That was said of Joseph,. Lord
Lister, the founder of antiseptic surgery, tho ��� hundredth anniversary of
whose birth was recently'celebrated.
He it was wlio perceived the far-
reaching implications of- Pasteur's
epochal discoveries and realized that
a new era iii turgery would dawn
when wounds 'ceasecj to be tlie
breeding place of germs." It was Sir
William Osier,'the famous-Canadian
surgeon, "who-summed up Lister's
services to civilization'in.this arresting sentence: "Before.antiseptic stu-
gery, bacteria were mo're deadly.than
bullcls."-in fact, iu tlie old days
over one-fourth of those wounded in
'battle died, not of  lhe direct injui-
, ies, but of subsequent infection.
Contrary to the theory which had
(prevailed Trom  early    Chinese    and
* Greek times, that   the   fever  wliich
[accompanied the septic process  was
(a-necessary part of natural healing,"
j Lister proved ito't only that suppuration was not necessary but that  it
[was the preventable cause of deaths
following certain wounds  and many
serious  operations.      Hospital    gangrene became so common it no long-
fer.was possible to regard   it   as , a
necessary evil.'  Lister was put on
the right track by reading a paper
!by   Pasteur,   in   which   the   great
! Frenchman had shown    that - putrefaction was'duo to the presence or
���"minute living "germs" and    not    to
the air itself.- As,a result of his own
|experiments Lister came to tho conclusion'that the-only way to prevent
festering was to   keep    the   germs
.vafions was when  he used  carbolic
(acid, a violent poison to prevent in-
tfecton   ln   surgical   cases.   Another
[great contribution to*   surgory    was
[his substitution of ."catgut," which is

[materials, themselves-Ihe   cause    of

Dr. Grisdale Has Intimate Knowledge
of All Phases of Basic Industry
Dr. J. ff. Grisdale, deputy ministci
of agriculture,, who is chairman ol
tho executive committee of Hie
world's poultry congress lo bo heici
in Ottawa this year, is recognized as
the foremost authority on agriculture and agricultural conditions iu
Cariada. The woik which lie,has'been
called upon to undertake and the experience whicli he has gained during his 30""*y<3ars o'f government
service in-the Federal department of
agriculture have given him an inti-
phascs    of
mate knowledge of   all
Canada's basic industry.
Born al'Ste. Marthc, Que., in 187u,
he received his early education at
Vankleek Hill high school" 'and at
Albert College, Belleville, and spent
two years at Toronto University. He
subsequently entered the OnLario
Agricultural College at Guelph,
whore ho won the gold medal for his
year. lie completed his. agricultural
course at tho Agricultural College,
Ames, Iowa, where he gradualea
with the degree of Bachelor of Agriculture.
He first entered ihe service of the
Government of Canada at the central
experimental farm, where hc had
charge of thc work in animal husbandry and .field husbandry carried
on in the experimental larm system.
He succeeded the" late Dr. .Wm.
Saunders as director of experimental
farms in 1911, and during thc period
1911-191S, when he hold that position, the experimental farms branch
gained a leputation, and. its wonc
gathered au imp-otus which makes it
today one of the most important in-
cuences in the development of Canadian agriculture.
In 1918, when the department of
agriculture was thorn of a number ol
its branches wl ich did not pertain
to agriculture, and became a' purely
agricultural department, Dr. Gris-
dalo became deputy minister, and
the same year" he was granted the
degree of D.Sc.A. by Laval University.

and 130 were injured.
These figures are revealed in a report -by the London and sIIome

The number o'f fatal accidents in
Greater London has Increased troiii
657 in 1920, lo 1,020 hi. 1926, while
non-falal acciJents, in the samo
period, have more than doubled,
-from 23.02S to 17,213. The proportion of children killed, however,
shows a steady decline, and this, the
committee 'consider, is largely clue
to "the stops takt-u by the authorities
lo teach school children to avoid the
risks of the streets.
Comparison is made with the"figures for'the United Stales, and the
committee report that the death
rale in America is approximately-
double that in Groat Britain.
It -is estimated that there aro now

Miunedosa, Man. (Special) ��� The
following is one of the many letters
ol\ praise which wo are continually
receiving. It comes from Mr-. W." G.
Kemble, of Waters Street. He
writes: "Getting up in the mornings

thank the person many times for
telling me about Dodd's Kidney Pills
for they brought me great relief. I
would not be without them."
' That Mr. Kemble's trouble came
from the kidneys is evidenced by the
relief he got from Dodd's Kidney
Pills. When the kidneys become
clogged or out ol order, the circulation" becomes sluggish, the impurities
aro not strained out of,the blood and
the. result is weariness and lack of
energy all over the body. This condition is not only disagreeable bul
dangerous as well. The impurities in
the blood are the seeds of disease.

Germany's 3ur<len Easy
Tax Load of Englishman is Two
Thirds More Than Teuton's
Once moro tho British will' have
brought homo to them Uie truth that
war is an expensive, business. Already the most heavily .taxed people
in the world, they*licard lrom Winston Churchill lhal Ihey must pay
yd more taxes to meet Lhe annual
��320,000,000 and  ��S30,000,000,
Of Ihis Iranoiulous sum, wliich, it
is calculated, means that every Englishman works one day in five foi
the Government, half goes for debt
charges.  Of this   ��-110,000,000, more
than nine-tenths, goes toward caring
for tho   ��7,000,000,000   or   ��35,000,-
000,000 the World War cost Britain.
This calls attention to how much
more it is  costing Britain -to liquidate her war expenditures than it is
costing Germany.    Using dollars for
ease of calculation the English Government   owes    ?35,000,000,000    ana
her debt charges   are   ?2,000,000,000
annually:    Germany    having    wiped
out her debt, owes tlie Dawes plan
annuities tho present total value-of
which is estimated at ?11,000,000,000.
Under thc maximum   annuities   she
pays ��600,000,000   yearly.   She   pays
two-thirds or that amount this, yeai.
Thus it will be seen that.it is 'costing German    taxpayers    about    one-
third as much as it is costing British
taxpayers lo care for Uie war debt.
The French Lhis year appropriate
23,000,000,000 francs, or about ��900,-
000,000. The debt charges aro aboui

'-'Save The Forest Week"
According to a perfectly reliable
estimate there is twice as much
hardwood in the world as there is
soft wood. But the demand for
soft wood is four times as great
as that four hardwood. Canada
is one of the greatest softwood
producing areas in the world and
British Columbia is by far the
most important section of the
Dominion's vast forest lands.
This Province's timber is practically all softwood and of the
largest and most valuable species
that exist. ,   .
The above facts furnish a most
telling subject for public discussion during 'this week which is
known as "Save the Forest-
Week," April 24th-to 30th next.
This period is fixed in Canada by
Royal decree and in the United
States by Presidental order, to be
set aside for a concentrated effort
of thought and action regarding
one of the most important duties
-of a citizen of a richly timbered
country���namely, keeping fires
out of their forests. Fire is the
enemy���fires set by human agency
which destroys far more timber
than is felled by the lumberman's
Hardwoods grow in the sparsely inhabited and jungle areas of
the tropics where losses by fire
are comparatively small. Softwoods are found in the countries
healthily active and the forest fire
menace is far more serious, both
as regards frequency and the
servicable value of the timber.
Mahogany may fetch more than
Douglas fir���but what is of the
���most-value to man? If the hard-
woocL supply of the world were
cut in two, few would suffer
:seriously, butlthejearly..drain on
our softwood resources, caused by
fire represents a disturbing economic problem. There are no
real subtitutes for B.C. timber!
Forest fires in the unique and
valuable softwood ,are occurrences
which should be reduced _ by
drastic public action t.o ah. irre-
reducible minimum.

'he active immigration season of
1927 that has just opened will see,
according to authoritative information given out by the Department of
Colonization and Development of
the Canadian Pacific _ Railway, the
largest and most effective addition to
Canadian population of any "similar
period since the outbreak of the Great
War. -In the-opinion of authorities it
is not unreasonable for the Dominion
to expect over 200,000 new citizens,
or about 70,000 more thaii during the
year 1926. During this year Canada
received 135,984 settlers. -
Several factors tend towards this
promised increased, of which one of
the most potent in the gradual evolution of systems and a development of
new machinery that has made tho
organization well nigh perfect. Further reductions in ocean and, rail
rates from the British Isles have induced considerable numbers to submit to the" examinations for acceptance under the cheap passage. Applications at the rate of several a day are
Jreing received, it is reported. Already
'" y
this year well over 3,000 settlers have
been hmded in Canada by the
Canadian Pacific liners plying between this country and the Motherland. It is interesting to note that
about_sixty per cent of the applicants
are miners and others who have some
knowledge of and experience at farm
work. 7
The volume of pertiheni inquiries
from United States Agriculturists
with regard to western Canadian
farming prospects, has been much
heavier this year than for some years,
is the report. This is regarded as a
most reliable index to the trend of
the movement. A new^nd significant
movement to develop however is that
of tobacco growers from North and
South Carolina, Virginia and other
states to "Western Ontario, being
attracted by the rosy prospects now
facing the Canadian tobacco growing
industry. -"**��� *.*.
Though lana settlement conditions
have drastically changed and the
tendency isxto place newcomers on
vacant lands within reasonable distance of the railways, it was pointed
out that it was a mistake to consider
that homesteadmg is,.altogether a
thing of the past as. a factor of
western Canadian development.
During the' year 1926 homestead
occupations in the west amounted to
an increase of 60 per cent over the
occupations for the'previous year,
and accounted-for the occupation of
nearly a million acres of raw land.
This movement in continuing as is
evident in the figures of fillings in
January 1927 which were 32 per cent
than those of the same month of the
previous year.     ,
The most significant factor today,
it was pointed out, is the local colonization board, througli wjiich the
general interest in immigration and
colonization takes practical shape
under the direction of. the railways.
About 150 similar boards now exist in
western Canada.
Juvenile immigration, the impor-'
tance of which is being increasingly
realized in recent years, promises to
be very heavy.during the year 1927,
all of which is being directed towards
the land.
