Undoubtedly one of the reasons for ihe .sympathetic ami. good relations
existing between.the United Slates and ('anathi is thai. Ave understand eacli
other,���an understanding brought about by a common language, the free ex-
.c'lange of newspapers and periodicals of"all kinds, free intercourse across
th.e border by mail, telegraph, leiephoue, radio, automobile and train. While
maintaining separate nationalities and qui to' different national ideals, and
A.'tih no thought of political union, tliere nevertheless exists the closest ties
<)( friendship and utulerst.auding so that the mere thought of war is abhorrent
and impossible. "'
The secret ls that Aye understand each other, and that understanding is
tlio outcome of knowledge of each other. Kach country is able Lo see. the
���other's viewpoint. If, instead of this knowledge, the two great groups of people dividing the North American continent'between them were steeped in
.ignorance of each other, tliere would be constant friction.
One of the sources* of-strength possessed by tho British Kinpiro is the
knowledge Avhich each component part lias of I.he other parts. Statesmen
have always recognized the importance, of the rapid aud continuous dissemination of information, throughout the Empire and every encouragement has been
.given to tho provision of inter-Empire means of communication by cables,
steamship lines, imperial penny-postage, and in these later years by the
���development .of aerial.communication. Not. tlie least of.the advantages of the
.���periodical imperial Conference is the discussion and understanding of Empire
problems which result and from which understanding comes.
So, too, in the annual gatherings of the League of Nations Assembly, and
the frequent meetings of tlie Council of the League and its many'committees.'
'.is to bo found one of the greatest of all*preventatives of.future Avars. These
meetings bring about mutual understanding and dissipate ignorance and prejudices. Only recently oue of tho outstanding .figures in the public life of
���Germany of today declared that had,'there existed tha same machinery
fop consultation between tho. nations prior to 1D14 as is.now provided by the
League of Nations, the Great War would never liave been, fought.
The need of the whole��� world is greater knowledge,��� that is greater.international knowledge. Fortunately, the trend of modern inventions, is to
facilitate the dissemination ot such* knowledge and to promote world 'travel
.and international intercourse.
Departing for a .moment front the intoriiatioiuil aspect, of this fundamental ^Williams' Pink Tills, and
question of knowledge versus ignorance, it will readily be appreciated that! herself in perfect, health.

Fourteen  Year  Old   Iowa  Boy   Makes
300 Mile Flight Alone
But a few years ago Avhen a boy in
his early teens "played hookey" from
school, he was usually expected fo be
found skating on a neighborhood pond
or at the worst hunting cottontails
with' an air rifle. But today the Tom
Browns and Hucklebury Finns are of
a more adventurous nature.
. LaAvrence Koons, 14, of Iowa, Is at
least. For Avhile Lawrence's Des
Moines teacher was marking him absent from lils junior high school classes the otlier day, Lawrence was making a trip to Omaha and back in an
airplane, alone.
Although lho boy piloted the plane
alone, making the round trip of 300
miles in thrco hours, LaAvrence appeared lb think nothing of the feat.
He look his teacher a note Lhe follow-
ing day to the effect that lie had been
aAvay "on business." The young pilot's
errand consisted of delivering a message for Hoy Peterson, Des Moines
aviator, to a farmer, and. returning immediately ...with an answer.
LaAvrence began learning to manipulate a plane ouly six months ago,
but he iias become so proficient that
he expects to pay his way through
college as an aviator. If he continues
as: he has begun, his success Is. assured.

made in 1922 for the funding of the
British Avar-time debt to the United
States. He- indicated also that inquiries made by him at the British Embassy had demonstrated, .that "there

Government, of asking to be.excused

The Life Of  -
Farm Machinery
:   Much Shorter in West .Then East Owing to Larger Acreage;
About two   thousand   farmers   re-

From a summary of the replies published In Seasonable Hints it appears
tliat tlie range of age runs'from..10 to
25 years for common.* implements in
the eastern provinces to a generally
_ much shorter period; oil use. in the prairie provinces.   This difference is ex-
: plained-by the greater acreage worked
in the west, the average acreage'., of
arable land among the farms includ-
.ed  in  tho Eastern reports.vbeing 7(!
acres, whilo in tlie ease of. the prairie farms 204-ucros was the average.
According to the.information given
in Uie replies, the annual cost of general farm irmchiuery per aero of.cultivated land was $1.3(1 on the prairie
and. ?2.85 in Eastern ��� Canada. . This,
cost includes depreciation, current interest,' repairsi   and   'housing.    The
smaller  cost on  the  prairies is  due
chiefly to   larger-sized   farms wliich
permit each implement   to.   cover   a
larger acreage each  yoar. It is  duo
also to the greater annual use*;;of machinery' on the prairies .that ���their life

Always Double Liability ��
. Home Banlc shareholders did not
have'a ghost of a chance to escape
double liability when the matter came
into1' court. Purchasers or bank shares
do so with their-eyes open, if( anything happens to the bank, tliey are
liable.,for twice, the amount of (heir
shares. However, most, peoplo would
lake that chance on the stock of the
Canadian chartered banks of today.
