Find Long Missing Seal
Canada In 1927
We arc now well kuuu-bed into the new year of 1928, and it is possible
to examine the completed story df Canada's progress and development in'the
yoar now ended.
IL is tho universally expressed opinion that the year whicli witnessed ihe
Domin-on's diamond jubilee was one of the best years in Canada's history. It*
was a year unniarred by any great national disasters-or epidemics;'it'was
a yonr of tairly general-prosperity; it was a year of national yrowth and of
development along Iii es making fot national unity and a better conception
of Canada';, future possibilities.
rinc Domiriior is mere highly'regarded hy our own people, and has attained Lo a higher place in tne eyes of the whole world. The,new Status
.v.cordccl the Dominions wiihiti the Empire has been productive of yr.iater
national pride and confidence which finds expression in a still greater determination to build stronger and better in the years to come. Not least among
tli p. factors adding to Canada's international position-was-the election of the
Dominion to a seat on the Council of the League of Nations and Lhc appoint?
mcnl of a Canadian Minister at Washington, a'nd an American'*Minister, at
Western Canada can justly claim credit for many of the thing's which
have resulted in Lhe improved position of tha country as a whole.'.During the-
past five j ears it is conservatively estimated that the farmers bf Western
Canada have sold farm produce Lo a value of-$2,000,000,000 at country"points,
and wiih the return of prosperity to. the West, there has been a vast improvement in business everywhere. In a New Year's message, Sir Henry .Drayton
declared Lhat the gain-of the year must be largely credited to agriculture and
the extension of Canadian mining;, and pulp, and paper industries. Western
people have long contended that a successful and prosperous agriculture
meant prosperity for all.    Tlie past year lias demonstrated this.
One of the'most noteworthy, developments of-the year has i-oen the rapid
increase of wealth pioduced from the mineral resources of the Dominion.
Prnctioaliy every province hag experienced important developments *_n this
respect, and no country in the world is now attracting quite so much interest,
or inviting larger investments in this field* of human activity. It is ���everywhere
Apparent that Canada is entering upon a new,era in mining, ancl one which
gives promises of adding enormously to the wealth of its people and providing
employment ior 1:1:107 thousands" of workmen, not alone in mining itself hut
in all the allied industries and businesses, including transportation, which
active mining operations bring about.
Tlie trade and commerce of Canada has continued at a high level, with
the Dominion occi-pying a position ih the front rank of nations, and with a'
per capita trade higher than any country except New Zealand.
In the\vorld of finance, -Canada has been blessed with cheaper inoii^y for
productive purpoaes-Lhan any country, except the United States. Taxation has
been reduced, revenues have expanded, and surpluses in Governmental administration have taken ihe place cf former deficits. Canada's ability to pay
off over $50,000,000 oi" its national debt out of* current income in 1927, is
significant of the great change whicli has taken place in the last-few years'.
Western cities report a year of great building activity, a largely increased volume of b?nk clearings, growth in population, prompt payment of
taxes, profitable operation of public utilities, and good business in almost
every branch of commercial activity. Towns and rural municipalities present
thc same 5 avorable report, an ever increasing number of the latter having,
liquidated their entire debenture indebtedness and Otherwise decreased thoir
liabilities ahd increased tlioir-assots.        .
Tlui3 thc old year closed with peace, contentment and prosperity prevailing throughout the Dominion, with a new,confi'dence and courage manifesting
itself.throughout the Maritime Provinces, with activity.general in the central
eastern Provinces, and with optimism prevailing in the West, coupled with
well organized efforts to .'steadily advance its agricultural interests and development and with entirely new opportunities on a large scale developing" in the north. Canadians can and are facing tlie new year with pride

If Your Daughter Shows Signs
Of Anaemia a /Tonic Is
Anaemia is simply a lack of blood,.
ILis one.of the most common and at
tlie same timc most dangerous troubles from which growing girls suffer. It is common liecau'se .the blood
so often becomes impoverished during development, when girls often
overwork and overstudy. It is dangerous because of the, stealthiness of
its approach and because of its tendency to grow steadily worse. Every
growing girl' should occasionally take
a tonic to ward off ' this insidious
trouble..It is because of their powerful action in rebuilding the- blood
that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills - have
made . a world-wide -reputation. The
case of Miss Claire Sullivan, Pincher
.Creek, Alta., amply proves the value
of this medicine. Miss Sullivan says':
"During my school days I suffered a
great deal from thin ancl watery
blood. I was continually weak and
tired; my appetite was poor, my sleep
unrcfresiling and I was troubled with
backaches. To make matters worse
I was. attacked with acute appendicitis and thc operation left me in a
very weakened state. My 'mother,
learning of the value of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, had me take them and
after using tliem for some time I can
say the result was simply wonderful, as they completely restored my
health, and now when opportunity occurs I always recommend these pills
to weak, pale girl 3 suffering as I
did."    **..���
You can get the pills from your
druggist, or by mail at 50 cents a box
from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

Have Overcome Handicap
SI. Uiinstiin's Annual licport Shows
Amazing Results Attained
Uy Blinded Soldiers
Of all the various schemes that
were set on foot following thc close
of the war to aid thc wounded soldier, none perhaps attracted* so much
attention and sympathetic interest as
that wliich is designed Lo help thc
blind soldier to overcome his great
handicap. The reason for this interest
lies in tlio fact that men and women
are wont to consider blindness tlie
greatest tragedy that can overtake
any person in the prime of life. It is
remarkable, therefore, to read of the
work that has been clone with blinded
soldiers at St. Dunstan's,' London. The
twelfth annual report of this institution has just been issued. St. Dunstan's was founded by thc late Sir
Arthur Pearson, himself blind, to aid
the soldier who has been deprived of
his eyesight and is obliged to.seek
another vocation in acquiring another
trade if his great affliction had deprived him of the skill or power to
take up again his former occupation.
Since its foundation 2,265 officers and

Dominion Likely.To Retain First
. 't Position For Indefinite
With the United'States, to all appearance, definitely eliminated from
the field of competitive wheat exporting-, the dominant position the
Dominion has attained is likely to
remain unchallenged for an indefinite period. In days before thc war
Russia divided production supremacy
with the United States, but agriculture under Soviet control is still far
from'the position it then held and has
cut little figure in the European grain
market. Tho wheat situation as it
then existed was recently and strikingly presented in comparative figures prepared by Sir Henry Row, ot
Lohdon, an eminent Briliub authority.
Before the war, he stated, wheat came
mainly from seven sources: 21 pcr
ccnt. from Russia, 13 per cent, .from
Argentina,. 11 per cent, from Canada,
8 per cent, from thc United States, ?
per cent, from each of India and Rumania, and G per cent, from Australia. Last year's figures were: Canada,
52-per ceiit.; Argentina, 10 per cent;
United States, 14. per cent.; Australia.
10 per cent.; Hungary, Jugoslavia, India, Algeria ancl Rumania each contributing minor _ amounts. With ��� thc
elimination of Russia? dominance rests
with Canada, and the wheat trade is
concentrated iri fewer countries. ���'
These percentages have been accepted as accurate by the Dominion
Government and are being circulated
with its imprimatur. Canada 'has
proved in the best of all tesl3, (hat. of
practical experience, that she possesses the best land in the world for thc
highest grade of hard wheat, and the
success of her farmers in.wheat growing has been a powerful magnet attracting farmers from other countries.

Men    Committing    Crimes
Violence Have Dread
Of Lash
, Canada is becoming one of the most
unhealthy places in the world for professional criminals, according to the
current issue of the Canadian Police
Bulletin, which analysis lhe effectiveness of punishment methods now iri
vogue throughout the Dominion.
The lash is the best weapon which
Canadian justice has found in its
war on crime.
"All over the country," says the
Bulletin, "criminal court judges are
making it quite clear that crimes of
violence are to be rewarded not only
by long imprisonment, but by thai
which all criminals dread���the lash.
"In Montreal, it is reported, Judge
Pcrrault sentenced two men charged
with robbery with violence to tcrms
in the penitentiary and to receive
twelve lashes each.
"The biggest of the two broke down
and sobbed . convulsively when he
heard that he was to be whipped," the
article states. "But he had no compunction whatever about the injuries
he inflicted upon the man he robbed
and showed great cunning in luring
him to a place where he could bc maltreated." '.
Summing up Lhe situation, the
Bulletin says:
"There is a unanimity of action
about this which suggests that thc
men who are sworn to administer
the -laiv-'impartiallyybelicvc^that'tlic

���"And it is not necessarily Lhe man

A Worthless Souvenir
Sir Robert Home tells a good slory
of an author who was attending the
first performance of his new play. It
was not a success. In fact, to put it
plainly, it was a dismal failure���and
it deserved to be.
At the end of'the last act'a lady
seated immediately behind the unhappy playwright tapped him on tho
shoulder and, placing something in
his hand, remarked:
"I recognized you when you came in
and cut off a lock of your hair. You
may have it hack!"

Impressions of India
Miss Kate Scott, daughter of'Mrs.
Viola Scott, of Midway, is a Church
School  Worker   of   the   Seven  Day
��� Adventist in India. Miss Scott arrived
in that country on October 2nd, 1927,
and the following are extracts from a
letter received by her mother, written
on the day of arrival:
"The rains are not entirely over here
yet. It has rained some since I came.
The hills are very green and pretty.
Poona is about 120 miles from Bombay
and has an elevation of about 2300 ft-
It is a very rocky district, practically
no soil on top of the rocks, and they
say within a few weeks after the rains
stop everything is barren and brown,
but is very pretty now. : Being so rocky
a district, it is a rendezvous for the
cobra. People don't stir out much at
"night because of it for then is when it
' comes out to hunt food. When they
(people) do go'out they always carry
a lantern and a heavy cane.' I suppose I shall have to get one.
You can hear jackals. howling most
any time of the night. They sound
much like our coyotes, and I guess are
similar to them. I. never saw and
heard so many. insects. I.have, slept
two nights . under a mqspuito , net.
Haven't bought myself one yet, but
I will soon. .Sleeping, under one is
kind of like going to bed in a big cage.
" And I never saw so many people in
my life. I began to get an idea of
what the East is at Port Said���and
really it is amazing. Bro. James did a
little buying in Bombay and took-me
around to see sOme of the shops and
markets. ��� They do have some beautiful
things in the way of silks and dishes.
You can find most anything you want
to buy and they are quite insistent
that you buy. '"��� All the time there are
a dozen or more little fellows following
you about with a basket wanting to
carry.--what you buy. All along the
street-are beggars and just like Bro.
James says "they are just like flies," if
again in- an instant. Every one of them
seems to try to talk louder than the
other fellow. For the most1 part they
are not all clean looking, many look
positively filthy, but not all. They,
mostly have intelligent faces.
I have come to know what one or
two of the.types of dress mean. The
Parsee women have a beautiful costume and they are a refined cultured
. class���many of them. beautiful. They
- are the descendants of the Persians
that'��Alexander ; the 'Great"*"" drove"
from Greece and have never mixed
' with the native ��� Indians. They are
followers of Zoroaster, or sun worshippers.
I have seen rice growing.' It is just
now beginning to head in most parts.
There is a white bird the Indians
revere as sacred because it hunts insects that would destroy the rice. This
bird is very friendly with the water-
buffalo because it catches the insects
off its back. The water-buffalo is an
ugly black animal. Its horns are long
and flat and seem to go in most any
direction. Sometimes they are curled
and-sometimes they are straight. I
saw one old cow whose horns curled
and crossed each other under her jaw.
They are a big animal. Their milk
doesn't have any special flavor, it is
what everyone uses here, that and
.goats milk. The cows hardly pay for
milking them.
Of course you know the cow: is a
sacred animal here and-takes pre-
'^cidence on the city street or anywhere;
No one (native) would think of striking
her to make her get out of the way,
and it would preeipate a .riot if a white
man injured her. One of them walked
down the street in front of us in
Bombay. But the bulls are used for
dray animals and are; given no consideration at all. Poor things. They
are all ugly,, great ungainly things,
"   with immense horns, ugly ears and a
'' big bump on their shoulders. We
think our cows at home not graceful���
but they.are creatures of grace and
beauty by the side of these:
We went over to a Mrs. Shepherd's
last nights and heard a large ortho-
phonic VIctrola. The James are having a similar one sent out. They have
one of the old ones like Mrs. Mills,
but are selling it.
We went for a ride yesterday.afternoon. Bro. James has a Chevrolet.
There are good macadam roads here
��� and the ride was interesting. We saw
the grass cutters coming along (mostly women) with big bungles of grass on
their heads. They carry everything
that way. When we came back we
went down what is. called the Bund
They were entertaining a visitor at
dinner, and, when the desert was being
eaten, little Johnnie said:
"Won't you have another piece of
apple tart, Mr. Hobbs?"
The visitor laughed. "Well, Johnnie," he said, "since you are so polite,
I bilieve I will ^ave some more."
"Good!" said Johnnie. -"Now, mother, remember your promise. You
said if it was necessary to cut into the
second tart I could have another piece."
A hotel manager, going along a corridor, saw a kneeling bootblack cleaning a pair of shoes outside a bedroom
"Haven't I told, you never to clean
shoes in the corridor, but to take them
"Yes, sir, but the man in this room
is a Scotchman and he is hanging onto
the shoe-laces." .    "

Thousands of working classes find in BEER

besides its nourishing effect possesses other

It is owing to its great percentage of extract
together with the very low amount of alcohol
that SILVER SPRING BEER possesses the
qualities necessary to serve these purposes.
