An Historic Conference
Tho imperial Conference,-which recently concluded its deliberations Jn
London, marked I.he passing of smother milestone in the history of tlie British
Jilmpiro. In *tho importance of tho conclusions unanimously arrived'at the
Conference is rightly regarded as a moat momentous event in Kmpire relationships and in tlie development of constitutional self-government for llie Ovor-
4_t'ii3> Dominions, andi second only to thm otlier historic: occasion when tho
Dominion's were admitted lo the 'League of Nations on tor ma of equality with
Cera I Britain and all foreign nations..
The* Conference decisions, in some respects, even over-shadow-in importance thc entry of the Dominions into ihe League of Nations. The decisions
readied are necessary to give full effect to lhe position of the Dominions as
members of lie'League. ,      .
Iu some quarters there is a tendency to unduly magnify the meaning
and effect of the Conference decisions and to create tho impression that it "is
u very pronounced step in the direction of complete independence of tiie
Dominions and fhe breaking up of the Empire. In other quarters, the tendency
is to belittle and minimize the work-of tho Conference as having, in effect,
chauged nothing. ��� The true situation is to be found between these two
extremes.
In numerous instances the Conference has merely given official recognition
to policies and methods of procedure lyhich have been followed in recent years
as the self-governing powers, of the Dominions have heen developed from
time to time, and as former,methods have become obsolete. In other instances
radical departures from past customs and procedure havo heen made, and
difficulties removed so as to enable the Dominions to exercise rights and powers winch tliey claimed, thus removing possibilities of mlsunderstandng and
friction in llie future. ���*:'*'       "'
The main achievement of the Conference has been iii the direction ot
clarifying the relationship which the Dominions bear to each other and to
Great Britain. In other words, a clear understanding has been reached on
matters of vital domestic concern to the Empire. It has been definitely set
down in black and white that, so.far as the Empire itself is concerned, each
self-governing unit occupies a position������ of equality with any antl air other
units. Absolute equality of status is established and Canada and the other
Dominions now occupy exactly'the same position within the Empire as does
Great Britain itself.   All recognize and render allegiance to the King;
A change is, therefore, made in the position occupied by the Governor-
General. Heretofore the Governor-General has been not only the representative.of His Majesty but also the agent of the British Government. In future
he will be His .Majesty's representative only, and will occupy the same position
in relation to the. administration of public affairs in. the Dominion as is'he-Id'"
by the King in Great Britain, but it is not a representative or agent of the Government of Great Britain. Formerly all communications between the Dominion
Government and the British Government had to pass through the Governor-
General and the Coionial Minister in the British Government. In future
communication -will be direct between Government and Government as ..equals'.
In future, matters relating to Dominion affairs will ho decided solely by
the Dominion and the Royal Assent will be given or withheld, not on'tho
advice of the Governmentof Great' Britain, but on the advice cd' the Dominion
Government. [������:[
��� The treaty making powers of the Dominions, hitherto a moot and disputed
point, have been clearlydeflued and oneDominioncan now enter, into a. treaty
witlf another Dominion or "with a foreign nation in the name of the Crown
without the Governments of Great Britain or of other Dominions being parties
to it. Dominion plenipotentiaries for the negotiation and signing of treaties
will do so under powers issued by the King on the advice of the Government
concerned, rather than on the advice of the Government of Great Britain as
has been the case in the past.
: The right of the Dominions; to appoint ambassadors or ministers to foreign governments is clearly established, and it is foreshadowed that the
Dominions will maintain such minister's in London while the Goverment of
Great. Britain -will send representatives td. the Dominions just as-it. does to
foreign nations. 7
The right of the Dominions to participate or refrain from participating in
wars in which Great Britain may become engaged is recognized. It remains to
be seen, however,; whether.other nations will accept or recognize this purely
domestic arrangement.   'Full autonomy in all thing's-and, absolute equality

Stomach Cramps
Yield to "Nerviline"
Plain Facts For The East
of status is established-as within tlie Empire, but ..whether the international
status of the Domiuions has been altore'd remains to be seen. Nations go to
war in the name of their ruler, Whether King, or President, ancl if the King of
Grea t Britain is at war it is open lo 'question whether he' is at war on account of
only a portion of Ms dominions or all of them. The enemy might refuse to
recognize ai piecemeal war. [Therefore, when Great Britain is at war, Canada
may also bc at-war even though, she might be averse to it     J:)"'.-..,....
The concensus of the best thought throughout the world'is that the
decisions of the Imperial Conference have given greater solidarity and unity
to'i-ie'whole Enrpire; tliat. the loyaU
win be intensified; that the British Commonwealth of Nations will be stronger than ever and a still greater factor in determining the peace and progress of
all mankind-.

remove the cramp. ; Nothing acts so
effectively as Nerviline. Take twenty
drops ina little sweetened water, and
quick as wi'uk the cramp is gone. Nerviline is about five times as strong as
most medicines, and because so strong,
only a small dose is required to give
instant effect. For stomach, gas, fermentation, cramps, etc., Nerviline
should be kent in every home . For

THE TRIALS
OF MIDDLE AG
Much  of the  Suffering Women
Endure Can be Avoided -
Every/woman approaches -middle-
age with considerable anxiety, because she knows this is the time of
her life when trivial ailments ;may bo
the first signs of trials and sufferings
to come. She fears the headaches,
backaches, -lassitude and other distressing weaknesses that burden "the
life of so many women at this, period.
Much of the. anxiety, and suHej-infir.
that assail women approaching middle age can be avoided. This has been
proved by thousands of:-happy, virile
women who have relied at this time
on the. health-help given by Dr.'.Wil-'
Hams' Pink Pills. To the middle-
aged woman the one thing necessary
lo carry her through her years of trial
is rich, red- blood. Because of their
direct action on the blood, Dr. Williams" Pink Pills are the one remedy
praised by women for women's needs.
Among the thousands who have found
benefit from'this remedy is Mrs.'Allan
Wager,'Echo Lake, Ont.,' who says:���-
"I wasvat a critical period in'the lives
of all women and was sick and*mis'-*;
erable. I became "so much "run-down
that I was unable to do my housework. Tho least exertion would cause
my heart to,, flutter- so. violently that I
would have.ilQlsiLdown.^-Lh_td_head-__
"aches and backaches, and was in a
depressed condition.' . I saw Dr. Williams' Pink Pills: recommended and'
decided to give them a trial. It was
fortunate that I did so, for under the
use of this .medicine I was restored
to good health and'strength and feel
like a new woman. I' never neglect
an opportunity to0 recommend this
remedy to those who are run-down for
I am very'-grateful for what the pills
did for jiijp/' '       ,
For allailments due to weak watery-
blood Dr. .Williams' Pink Pills will be
found a, specific. You can get( the
Pills from any medicine dealer or by
mail at-50c a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Out.
Mayor Webb  of Winnipeg   Addresses
Toronto Audience on Hudson's
Bay Railway
Speaklug on "The Hudson Bay Railway and Immigration" to members of
tho Empire club at Toronto, Col. U. II.
Webb, mayor of Winnipeg, indulged
In what he called "plain speaking" to
the provinces of Quebec and Ontario,
regarding their attitude toward the
west. He thought Ontario "should be
ashamed" of having a population of
"two millions" when II. should bc fifty
millions. Ontario and- Quebec, ho continued, should remember \li'Ai there
were other parts of the Dominion, and
should "play the game" so far as their
problems wero concerned.
One of the great problems of Western Canada, he stated, was thc completion of thc Hudson"J3ay railway, a
project which would be as important
in opening up the vast, mineral, forest
and power resources of northern
Manitoba as the Temiskaming and
Northern Ontario railway had proved
to be in this province. Thej?rospority
of Ontario and. Quebec depended on
the prosperity of Western Canada,
ancl it was vital to tlio whole Dominion that this Huo be completed.
"Wo want your moral co-operation,-'
Mayor Webb declared at ono point in
his address, adding that in the past
this had not been forthcoming. The
building of the Canadian Pacific railway line through the west had been
opposed-, he said, as the Ifudson Bay
railway was being opposed by the cry
that Western Canada was a land only
fit for buffalo. The building of the T.
and N. O. railway had opened up a
vast section of rich land, yet that lino
had not been-extended to James Bay
because it was impossible from a navigation point of view. On tlie other
hand, Hudson bay, he said, was open
all the year round, and Fort Nelson
would bc au all-year ��� seaport, which
was more tha.n could be said of Montreal.

Has Splendid  Chance
To Develop  Aviation
Greater   Opportunity in Canada Than
in^.England   Says  Cobham
"There is greater opportunity for tho
development of aviation throughout
the Dominion than there ever will be
in the home country for the simple
reason that whereas in England, we
are handicapped with' short distances,
very bryl visibility and a lack of the
necessity of flying, while in the Dominions Ave havo vast distances to be
-covered7as-nrrulergoocrflying'~wcather
and an opportunity of proving that
flying'is the quickest means of transport.
Such is the prediction of Sir Alan
Cobham, famous British aviator, who
has arrived iu Canad/t where he will
deliver lectures.
"The great hope of theulevelopmerU
of civil aviation In England and Scot-
hind," he said, "is tho private owner
who will use his aeroplane chiefly for
tho pleasure, ot flying from one place
to another and visiting his friends.
"Tho time is not far distant when
the quickest and cheapest way'to get
from most points in the Dominion will
be by air."

Unless the inscriptions, on the walls

ton.
A process of recording the inscriptions on tho walls of tho Medinec
Habu Temple at Luxor is being employed by Dr. Breasted, which combines the use of cameras, draftsmen
and epigraphors, t,he latter to translate
the inscriptions. To complete and publish the records of this temple will
tage at least two or three years, Dr.
Breasted said, while lo record all of
the inscriptions of Egypt's great temples would probably require tho work
of another entire generation.

Balfour On The
New Empire
Self-Governing Populations United by
Something Much  Greater Than
Control
Lord Balfour, wlio presided over tho
committee which drafted the Imperial
conference declaration on inter-imperial relations, stated in a speech delivered recently, in London that he lmtl
heard it said that this declaration contained nothing new. It was true tliat
nothing new had been introduced into
the constitution of tho empire, but
there was a new statement of the moral
basis on which tho constitutional fabric rested. The new thing-was'not
that thero was 110 control of tho
dominions by the Mother Country. Tho
now truth was that the self-governing
portions of thecempire now regarded
themselves as elements In a great
unity which did not depend upon control, but did depend on common ideals
and- common beliefs.
It was very hard for people to accept the idea that a great empire
could exist without control. In all
other nations thei'e was control. , It
might be democratic' control or control of some absolute monarch or some
ambitious adventurer, but thero'was
always control. For the first time we
had now announced that we were an
empire of0which self-governing populations were united by something much
greater or much more .sublime than
control, and which so far as he could
see could bo made ultimately as effective. '
Lord Balfour continued that when
ho was young it was generally thought
that as the dominions grew to maturity they would separate themselves
fronr the Mother Country and become
wholly independent, but lhat which
found favor at the v Imperial conference was of a totally different kind.-
The Empire did.not end with'maturity
of the great communities to which .it
given birth; it began there. It was
only .now that the British Empire was
getting to be what it was predestin--
ed'to be, it was only iioav that in tho
most explicit terms, it was borne in
upon every citizen of free communities of the Empire that it was their,
business to manage their affairs - as
they pleased, but that they must nev-
er-forget.they were parts of a greater
wholo, -with Weals to which all that
whole was committed and to which
in turn they owed, as he was sure they
would be ready to pay, free service

To Search For
Treasure Ship
��
Magnificent     Vessel     Belonging    to
Roman   Emperor Submerged
Over 1900 Yearg
According to ancient legend, at (he
bottom of Lake Nemi, about .15 miles
south of the historic city of Rome, lies
the ship of the' mad Emperor Caligula,
submerged over 1900 years ago. Backed by the goodwill and influence of
- Premier Mussolini, a group of Italian'
archaelogists are planning to locate
and raise the vessel and its fabulous
treasure.
. Men of the Renaissance tried ��� to
hoist tlie reputedly magnificent vessel
in the fifteenth and sixteenth "centuries, aud failed. An expedition so
recent as   1875   proved   conclusively
' that hoisting was an impossibility. It
is now the intention of II Duce to
drain the Tuscan lake compleloly^by
pumping its waters into the basin of
Lake .Albano, a. sister body of water
near Ncmi, but markedly below it in
elevation.' In this fashion, salvaging
the uttermost fragment of the ship an.d
its precious cargo will be assured.
Archaeological Europe "will attend
keenly the operations of Mussolini's
technical commission, assigned the
task of drainage, for the vessel has
been speculated about for 500 of the
years it has been water-buried. Books
have been written about it. Papers
havc     been     read     belore   learned
" societies'upon its luxurious appointments. In the. marbles, the bronzes,
the wall panels and the banquet- plate
if was reputed to contain, .the vessel
was easily worth a. king's ransom. It
is now a matter of how much of its
treasure, after nineteen centuries of
submersion remains.
It was not unlike a,country estate
afloat. It included, accord-big to modern authorities, a marble dwelling of
ample proportions, a columned temple,
baths and galleries, a serles-of "Carefully tended gardens with growing
trees, and a spacious banquet hall. The
craft had a twofold purpose; it was
a transcendent locale for courtTevols
and  roistering,  and it was a place
^ where the neuropathic 'emperor���
afflicted with chronic insomnia in addition to his other ills���might, successfully woo sleep.

A woman was standings-near him.
He confessed she was not attrac'ive.

which the big gun was. produced���tills

the barrel,,and the smaller piece, or
'breeching, which alone was loaded,
and when required for use, was lashed
on with ropes or chains to.-lhe hinder

The hollow cylinder (foril is open at
both ends) is of wrought iron, and of
���very coarse workmanship being constructed pf iron hoops- embracing
longitudinal* bars, but, by rust and
age, all appearing to be ono and ihe
same uneven mass. The camion has
been vastly' strengthened by eleven
powerful and massive rings, that encircle the cylinder at the distance ot
ten inches-apart. -An' attempt has
been made to ornament tlie face of the
vent and last muzzle ring; tlie former by a rude Van Dyke edging to lhc
vent, the latter by n row of round

quantity of^bronze, or copper','longitudinal ��.mall bars let info the iron of

As no attempt ever appears to have

rising and- falling tu some places a

over or out of such'a" bore, it is hoped,

How Mountains Were Formed
As Earth Cooled Outside Layer Shrank
and  Made Ridges
Although originally a molten mass,
cur earth has gradually been cooling.
During this process'the crust hardened and then, the next skin- would
solidify and shrink, and ao on, the
result being that the outside layers
would tend to fall inwards, "wrinkling" into ridges���our earliest mountain ranges. Cracks, too, would be
formed, through which there would be
eruptions", and other mountains were
made with the tlirown-up lava,
The enormously high original mountains were gradually worn down by
rain and weather, but as somc of their
stones would be harder than others,
they would not wear evenly, and this
again makes another cause for ridges.
Ilivcrs, too, would cut a way through
soft 'earth; forming plains, but leaving
the hard rock standing up us mountains.    - -   ���
Inhaled as a vapor and, at the same
time absorbed througli thc skin like a

Most Famous Burial Ground
Authenticity of Cave of Macpelah Has
Never Been Questioned
The interior of the ' cave of Macpelah in Southern Palestine, wherein
'are the tombs of Abraham and Sarah,
Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob ancl Leah,
was.photographed for the first lime
not long ago. This burial ground of
Lho old Bible patriarchs, says a recent
writer, is the most famous ln the
world. Its authenticity has never been
questioned. The Jews kept it as a
holy place throughout the,,ages. The
Christians venerated It also'; and when
the Mohammedans conquered Palestine thcy in turn preserved the spot
as sacred. In the eleventh century the
Crusaders built a castle-like church
over Jhe cave and the Turks turned
il into a mosque, which'is still standing. The Moslems regard, the place
as a holy place. Before the war the
Christians who were permitted to enter it could be counted on'The fingers

and  they planned a way of "fixing"
him.   Thoy suggested lhat he should
go Into a Siberian prison van ��� lho

little job of this kind Houdini always
brought one of his own mon with him
to see fair piny.   The police apparently knew of this arrangement, and took
HoiKiinl's employee away lifter they
had. locked  the doors of the prison
van.   Then, wiih'no one to stop them,
they soldered up tho doors and fold
Houdini lo get out���if hc could; otherwise  ho  could starve.    I-Ioiriiiii  was
in the van for a day and a half. But
ho escaped.   The Russian, police did
not know iheir man.    They , did'not
know that Houdinl's hands and fingers
were extremely strong. Willi his bare
fingers he could unscrew bolts whicli
an  ordinary man would  have  found
difficulty in moving with proper tools.
Moreover, he was so often called upon to make his   escape   from   cells,
handcuffs, and,so forth, when he was
entirely nude that ho trained his toes
to serve him as fingers. After his escape from the prison van in Moscow
the Czar sent for Houdini and loaded
him  with  presents.    The police  accounted for his escape by saying that
he was a spirit who could pass througli
brick walls, steel doors���anything!
He also had a trying experience in
Germany. He!.was placed In a high cell

are utilizing lho waters 6"f thc Nidder-
dale to turn a valley into a large lake.
Already two lakes of some size, An-
gram.and Gowtlnvaite reservoirs, have
been'3hadtrin_NidUerclal^burilTe~Scar
reservoir is regarded as the "star
turn" in the programme. It consists
principally in thc erection of an immense concrete dam���in certain
respects greater than any existing artificial" barrage���across thp NiM Valley.
More than 750,000 tons of concrete
will be used, in ' the . construction.
Cement for making this arrivee on
the"spot at the rale of 200 tons a day.
Stone for the concrete'is being quarried from (lie side of the valley SOO
feet above the work. Tile engineers
have discovered an ingenious method
of converting into power the transport of this stone from the quarry to
the crushing mill. Loaded trucks, in
their descent from the top, pull up
the empty wagons, and any energy not
required for braking purposes is utilized .to compress air for use in yie
(pjitrrj".
Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can the floods drown it.���Song
of Solomon viii. 7.
God scatters love on every side
Freely among His 'children all,
And always hearts    are   lying   open
wide,"
Wherein some grains may, fall.
���James Russell Lowell.
The Maker has linked-together the
whole race of man with this chain ��� of
love. I like to think that there is no
man,but has had kindly feelings for
some other, and he for his neighbor,
until we bind together the whole
family of Adam. Nor does it end here;
it joins heaven and earth together. If
identity survives the grave, as our
faith tells us, is it -not a consolation
to fhinkJJiat there may.be one or two
souls among he purified and just
whose affection watches us invisible,
and follows the poor sinner on earth?
���-William Makepeace.Thackeray. .
Find Way to Get Food Placed Out of
Their Reach
Another example of the ingenuity of
ants has been vouchsafed by a French
scientist. I-Te had set out a bowl of
grain for birds to feed upon and noticed that it was raided by an unending procession of ants. In order to prevent this he placed the bowl at -the
top of a pole coated with birdlime.
Over this he thought It would be Impossible for .the insects to pass. But
he says that when the ants found
their way barred Sjy the sticky -coat-
ting, they began- carrying to it grains
of sand and earth, Avhich they stuck
upon the pole, thus gradually building
a firm and safe highway, by means
of which they could reach the bowl of
food.
Sores Heal Quickly.���Have you a
persistent sore that refuses to heal?
Then, try Dr. Thomas' .Eclectric Oil

ing,' carry away the proud flesh, draw
out thp pus and prepare a clean way
for the new skin. If is a recognized j
healer among, oils ahd number's, of
people can CQrtify that it healed where
properly applied.
