three, one of which was a penalty
shot. Morrison got Greenwood's

British vs. Foreign Born
Tlio subject, of immigration to Canada is, it. is gratifying lo note,
���engag.'n;;' the attention OC the people of the Dominion to an ever increasing
���exteul. A very, real interest is being aroused, and this interest is not confined to Canada, but is much in evidence in thc British isles This growing
interest is occasioned, not only because of a realization of tlie fact that one
���of Canada's national requirements is a larger population, but because it is
becoming increasingly clear, that in the present and succeeding years,*
-Canada will be the mecca of the surplus population of older and more
���congested lands.
Much of the discussion around this subject ls as to the effect of this
darger influx of population-upon the future character, ideals and national
view point, of the Canadian peoplo. Fears are expressed income, quarters?
that non-English, speaking peoples "will swamp the native Canadians and
the British-Lorn, with a resultant gradual weakening of the ties binding
���Canada to the Empire, and the possible inlroducion of customs and ideals
not wholly acceptable to those of British descent. It has been argued
thai. Canada should restrict immigration/-'to men and women of British
While it. will bo generally admitted that greater encouragement should
b'->. given to British immigration, than to immigration of other races, it is a
pity and a grave mistake that people strongly urging this view should indulge
in mis-statements in,their references to the present composition of Canada's
population, and more particularly ihe racial classifications of the people of
the "Western prairie provinces.
Speaking before the Canadian Club of Vancouver recently, Mayor Webb
���of AVinnipeg is credited with making the statement that fifty-fivo per cent, oI'
the people of the prairie provinces were non British. It would be interesting i.o havo Mr. Webb submit some proof in support of such a. statement,
'because the official census figures do not support him.
At a meeting of the Women's British Immigration League held in
Saskatoon a few weeks ago, the even more astounding statement was mado
that "after a careful study of statistics" it was established thai. Saskatchewan's population was 75 per ��� cent, foreign born and only 25 per cent.
British, and a Saskatoon paper headed its report of this League meeting witli
a two-column display declaring "Province's Population is 75 per cent, of
Foreign -Extraction." ',.;*'*
In view of thc circulation of such misinformation from what might well
���'be accopled as authoritative sources, it is well that the actual facts should be
.given .wide publicity.
According to the census of 1921 the population of the three" prairie
.provinces was 1,95G,0S2, and was officially, classified as follows.
Born iu
Born in

99,392   '
Albert a   	
Total    -..3,160,669 312,861 209.MO 273.112
.In other words, out of a total population of ],956,0S2, no less than lAl'i,-
;530 were British-born, either in Canada, or in Groat Britain and otlier British
��� countries.    That is, a little better than 75 per cent, were British-born as
��� compared with less than 25 per cent. non-British, a contrast, to.Mayor Webb's
���figures of 55 per cent. non-British and only 45 per cent. British.     ���  ;
The figures used at Saskatoon relative to Saskatchewan should just be
.ro/erscd���75 per cent, bom under the British (lag and only 25 per cent,
under all other Hags being the correct classification.
It is a well known fact that thousands of our people classified as born
in the United States are the children of Canadians who emigrated to the
western middle states in the eighties .while other thousands are of British
Canada is British and Bntish to stay.    The Anglo-Saxon has' demon-
.-si ruled his ability to assimilate otlier people as no other race has done, and
here In tho West we know that most, of our non-British people have a high
regard  for  democratic British  institutions,  a real appreciation  of- British
.rijctty, and a deep respect for IMfish law.   They are glad to have their
��� children educated in regard to these things, and in a generation or two it Is
well nigh impossible to distinguish them from those.of British descent, ex-
German Doctor Puzzled
Thinks  Heavy  Jewels   May  Account
For Broken Wrists on Mummies
Thp hectic living of this modern
jazz age is responsible for bodily ailments unknown to the old Egyptians,
declares Dr. Arnold Sach of the
University of Heidleburg who has
performed autopsies on thousands ol'
mummies, some of which date back
4,000 years.
"Dentists, tooth paste, mouth lotions appear to havo been unnecessary in ancient lime:, because nine
out of ton Egyptians had perfect teeth
at death," Dr. Sach assert.'!.
Cancer, 'gout, tuberculosis, and
diseases of the blood wore virtually
unknown in early times but Dr. Sach
admitted being baffled in his eliorts
to determine whether the wearing ol
heavy gold and iron bracelets accounts for the-large., number of frac
jured wrists he. had-discovered in
his' examination of mummies.

Strange Performance
Staged in Moscow
Remarkable Parade Was Grim Reminder of Czarist  Days
Moscow "witnessed one of tlit-
strangest theatrical performances In
history recently. Dressed in ���striped
prison garb aud shackled with chains
and handcuffs and with shaved heads,
300 actors paraded the streets of Ihe
capital guarded by Cossack prison
wardens carrying knouts and swords.
The purpose of this grim procession
was to show the present proletarian
public liow political offenders were
punished in Cwirist days and signalized the tenth anniversary of liberation I'rom imperial jails of professional revolutionlsls.
Eacli "convict" wore on his back
a large ace of diamonds which in pro-
revolutionary days was accepted as
a symbol of degradation and op-pro-
bium. The entire company proceeded
to the Meyerhold thealre whero thej

Her Kidneys Were In
Pretty Bad Shape
Manitoba Lady Tells of Benefits
Received From Dodd's
Kidney Pills
Mrs. J.  D.  Beattie, in a  Few Words
Gives  Reason   Why  Dodd's   Kidney
Pills Are So Popular.
Minceta, Man. (Special)���"My kidneys were very bad and I felt as
though I did not want to do anything
but sit around. I thought 1 would try
Dodd's Kidney Pills, whicli I did, and
they helped me very much. After
taking two boxes I began-to feel well
again, and now my kidneys are fine."
What Mrs. Beattie states is all that
has ever been claimed for Dodd's
Kidney Pills���that they are good for
sick kidneys. The road to good health
lies through the kidneys, if they are
kept. strong and well, all the impurities are-strained out of the blood.
II" they are weak and out of order the
impurities stay in thes blood and disease'is the sure result.
Dodd's Kidney Pills keep l-he kidneys in. good condition to do their
work, of cleaning and purifying-tho
Weak, nervous, -run-down women

New Place Open For Canada
Can   Have   Seat   on   Geneva   Council
Says Herbert Holt
The universal esteem in which
Canada is held throughout the worla
is liable to bring the Dominion face
to face with the question whether or
not she will accept a place on I lib
council oT the League of Nations, Sir
Herbert Ames, financial director of
thc secretariat of the League of Na
tions, told the Ottawa Canadian Club.
He predicted that in a short lime
it. will be demonstrated that if Cai-
ada wants a seat on the council she
can have it with tho goodwill of all
the members of the League.
This goodwill, he added was deserved uecauso Canada had always
played the game and taken her full
share of responsibility in connection
with league matters.
There existed at Geneva, he added,
an atmosphere for peace and the men
who were making international reputations were the men who came to
Geneva ready to make concession's.
Sir Herbert summed up the change
lhat had taken place by declaring
that fear had been replaced by security, force by compromise, despondency by hope and co-operation had
replaced competition.
"Worth its weight in gold"
Says Ottawa Matron
Mme. Beatrice Charlebois could not hold pen to write.
Nerves completely shattered, health ruined* Now alert,
vigorous and strong, she gives praise to Tanlac
Tlio two-year ordcaKwliich sha
Easscd through before Tanlac came to
er permanent relief, was recently described by Mine. Beatrice Charlebois,
of 22 Hose St., Ottawa.
"What I endured in that time could
not bc toldj" she said. "I was so weak
I could hardly walk. My appetite was
poor and my stomach gave no end of
trouble. Gas and pains would bring
on fainting spells.
"My nerves were so completely
shattered that I jumped in fright
every time' thc doorbell rang. My
hand trembled so that it could not
hold thc pen to write my name. Night
after nignt I've gono without sleep,
too nervous to lie slill for even a few
moments. Even my housework became too much for me.
"I tried all kinds of remedies in
those two years, but can honestly say
Tanlac gave me my first real relief. It
built me up so that I've gained 11 lbs.,
eat and sleep fine and have nerves as
calm and steady as ever. Tanlac is
worth ils weight in gold."

Is Land of Opportunity for Women as
Well as Men, Says Lady Byng
"We all realize that men are tbt
most helpless creatures in the world,"
said Lady Byng, until recently Mistress of Bideatt Hall, Otiawa, in an
address lo a London club on the woman's side of a settler's life in Canada,
"They are never old enough to take
care of themselves," she said, "and if
they aro like this in England they are
worse in Canada. Therefore,'if a man
goes to settle there and takes with
liim a woman who is not going to pull
with liini, ho.will fail.
"Canada is the land of opportunity
for women as much as for men. It is
the woman who is prepared to put her
back into it and not care an atom
what she does, who will make good
aud become a successful and prosperous settler."
Lady Byng described schemes of
migration as very good so far as they
went, but "red tape" was terrible and
had stopped 'a great many people
from going to Canada,
She dwelt upon the hospitality and
friendliness of Canadians lo people
from the home couutry.
