"Canada is our ally and that makes a difference. We don't feci like we arc moving into a foreign country," was the way V. M- Morgan of David. City, Nebraska, expressed it to the writer in the office of. W. W Bennett, Dominion Immigration agent in Omaha. This mental -process was revealed eaVly in the conversation when the writer met Morgan and four other farmers from. that, section of Nebraska: who were interviewing the Canadian, agent as to railway fares, general condition as to the time they should reach Saskatchewan for this party represented some twenty-six persons who." will move into the Goose bake section early in the spring. "It don't seem like a foreign conn-try now." This intimate note has been sounded a score or times in evfity immigration office the writer has recently visited and it suggests-the new idea which the war spirit of both nations has.given birth. It is the mighty heritago for which 'the fighting men are responsible, and believe me, they have heard all about the prowess and the heroism of the Canadian soldiers down here. This block of states, separated by tho Missouri river-Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri-have contributed more than all others in the west to swell tho exodus to Western Canada in t)ie last decade and the people are very accurately informed about the Dominion in general and Western Canada in particular. Scores of, Canadian publications are subscribed for directly by citizens of these four states who are interested one way and another jn British America and thousands of pieces of reading matter published north of the line reach this section through the friends and relations of various families who live in Canada. Typical of this general Interest, two papers in Omaha, one in DesMoines and one in Kansas City, found their readers so concerned over the recent Dominion election that they thought it profitable to publish ext2*acts giving tho results and I have been told that in nearly every large city through the central and western States extra editions were issued on the evening of December 17 by the influential journals announcing the success of the "war party In Canada" a*s the Unionists were generally known in thia part of the world. In newspaper offices of Omaha, Kansas City and To* peka, the writer was informed hundreds of long distance enquiries wore received from rural districts that night as to how the elections in "British Amerlea*' were going. War taxes and conscription cannot be urged as a reason why a farmer with a big family and, a fat bank account should not move from Nebraska to Alborta, Saskatchewan or Northern Ontario. Unquestionably many unscrupulous real estate speculators, especially those with so called, "wild lands" in Texas for sale, did last year interrupt the normal flow of settlors from the central west of tho StateSvirt-to the Canadian prairie provinces. They of course were not satisfied with the truth. Not only was every myi between 20 and iSO to be conscripted hut half the land values were being confiscated! These were Bam pie falsehoods hurled at (hose who contemplated going over the line.  Pro-Germans too lost no opportunity to ' knock" Western Canada, obviously, but today the Austro-German is singing in a powerfully low tone through the west. A knock on Canada! Listen--a pro-German who speaks disparagingly of a Canadian west of the Mississippi river today, especially in the agricultural sections has got some nerve, it is the same as if Uncle Sammy has been knocked. So this is the congonial atmosphere for the breeding of (.he wanderlust germ-the only German' thing that th rl v es (.oda y in (;] i is pa rt of the world. Said Mr. Bennett today: "1 have reccviert many, many more en-cjnlriea about Canada this fall than in any other, for the timo of year. Canada's fine crops have contributed to thia, I have no d�Ubt^\nd Canada's bold fighting spirit Is a tremendous factor Ip attracting favorable attention hero as in other parts, of the world. I look for an unusually large movement northward this spring and 1 expect the demand for Canadian lands to steadily Increase, from now until tho close of the war and then 1 expect the immigration from the Central States toward the western provinces to reach unprecedented proportions." This optimistic note wasvstruck by other agents. In fact, not one person with whom I have talked-and the interest of many did not lie in that direction- but admitted that ^muy of the best farmers of their section were inclined toward c.uiada just now, as an Investment or fur residential purposes. But. there sre no special rates) to the Canadian border. This in an obstacle that deters many who would otherwise seek Canadian lands. True, the reduced rates to Southern Texas points, the section that is today chiefly competing with Canadian prairies for new settlers, are not very heavy, as far as the railroads are concerned, but the Te*as land companies have found it necessary to make very special inducements to fanners from Nebraska and Kansas to .settle there. They frequently pay the entire expenses of moving a special train, basecj upon the purchase uf so many sections of their land. This suggests the proposed reorgani-, fcatlon of -the Canadian immigration agencies in the States. Canadians and others friendly to Canada who are familiar with the actual process of these agencies realize that, the Union government is in a position to make some changes \hat will be profitable to the Dominion changes that were possible but not probable under. a party government For instance there are a number of agents who have stood the acid test through the Liberal and Conservative regimes. These are men of outstanding ability who just' /'happened," not through any merit of [the system by which they were thrust into office. There are others, not so very many at that, who express the worst feature of the party organization which was lesponsible for'thsir selection. Hon. James Cakler who is to have charge of this reorganization � is well informed as to the needs ,of I tho immigration system. He 1ms had an opportunity for years to study conditions first hand in the west. He knows the prairies as well as the Pacific coast province-and there are many here who are anxious to secure the 'fruit and timber lands of the Oka-nagan-and tttc writer has heard many friend's of Canada express the hope that he would*-inform himself, first hand, of conditions in the various agencies of the Dominion in the western States. They have said they thought Mr. Calder couid not better' employ about a month of his time than* in running down here and going into the more important offices, talk with the business men of the cltieB where they are located and get in touch directly. Me would soon dls* cover the weakness and strength of the different offices he'Uas undertaken to work into a force that will interpret in the bes? sense all thai Union government, represents in a practical way. This aspect of the problem looks like first class business. For instance, I recall attending a banquet of one (of the leading chambers of commerce organizations of the west a year ago when I was over this trail. There were perhaps 500 representative business men from four states present. The British cousular agent was there and was roundly applauded when he spoke. � 1 was keenly disappointed when I discovered the business representative of the Dominion of Canada was not present. The next day T called specially on the president and easthUly asked why the omission. He was very frank. He said that the Dominion's representative had not been invited during his term ad1 president-he had served nine months- He had .been informed how-ever that his predecessors had invited him frequently to the annual gatherings of the organizationJand he .had never accepted. He said the members of the organization really desired to have this gentleman present but he had always found an excuse to be absent. It struck me that the Dominion is getting the worst of it in this particular centre of its activities. J know the agent personally ami I have not hoard any otiier criticisms of. his conduct but it seemed to me that* he was missing a splendid oppor tunity to carry on his propaganda by pot attending these great gatherings of American captains of industry. Today the great state . agricultural so cieties and district societies of tho Central States are being held at,,vari-ous State capitals and Canadian lands and Canadian ideals are widely discussed any popular. No more economical way-of advertising Canada can he introduced than having her agents at these meetings to answer questions and deliver addresses.

HOW CATARRH STARTS Catarrh usually begins with a cold in the head. The Catarrh germs breathed in through the mouth or nostrils have settled upon the inflamed and delicate mucous membrane that lines the nose and throat. These germs are harmless to healthy tissues; when they lodge upon an irritated surface It means a more and more diseased condition of the membranes. They thus produce further inflammatory irritation and in time even ulceration. The sufferer from catarrh often finds his sight and hearing failing. He suffers from an almost constant dull ache over the eyes and across the forehead. The mind becomes dull when the membranes of the nasal cavities are in a discharging condition. It is the pus and decaying matter oofcing from these sores that causes the offensive breath so common to victims of catarrh. You may not notice it yourself. You probably do not. But your friends do. though they are too careful of your feelings to tell you so. That nasal catarrh is a nauseating disease any one knows who has had to sit close to, or talk face to face with a person reeking with purulent catarrh. Have you ever had to endure in sickening silence the hawking' and gagging of a catarrh t^ctim, or had to sit close to such a person and experience a. disgusting, appetite-losing, foul odor, which you could not explain, and did not know what it was? That is catarrh and there are many people who have it and don*t know it. NASAL CATARRH This form of Catarrh is, to say the least, sickening and disgusting, besides being most common and highly dangerous. The changes of weather render the delicate mucous membranes in the nose, and throat very susceptible to inflammation, and thus encourage the birth and growth of catarrh) germs. The nose and throat are what might be called the highway of life. The throat itself Is divided i�to two main pasages; one the Oesophagus, or gullet, going to the stomach, the other the respiratory tract or Trachea, going to the bronchial.tubes and lungs. Through the lungs the blood passes with every heart beat and there comes in contact with the air. If the air breathed in is pure, and' if nose, throat and lungs are sound, the dark blood, is at once purified and passes out of the lungs in a bright red streaJli, carrying life and strength to all the body. If, however, the air breathed in is bad, or if the nose, throat or lungs are diseased in any �way, then the blood, (instead of being purified by its passage through the lungs) Is, on the contrary, still further poisoned and goes on its way carrying the disease to all parts of the system. CATARRH OF THE STOMACH (Often mistaken for Dyspepsia or Indication) Many cases of indigestion and dys-pepsia^are simply the result of catarrh of the throat and stomach. At night as you lie asleep, the mucus drops down from the throat and head and is swallowed into the stomach. In the morning you awake feeling heavy and tired; there is a bad taste' in your mouth, you are in a bad fcumdr; you wonder what ails you. You have catarrh, catarrh of the stomach and your F whole system is poisoned and reeking with the disease. Your stomach has become clogged and the delicate membrane is coated with a vile sticky substance. The catarrh mucus refuses to he digested and only passes out of the stomach .with great difficulty. Little by liitle, the mucus with the ' catarrh germs which it has carried | settles permanently on the mucous membranes which lines the stomach. Real dyspepsia and indigestion are caused by lack of digestive juices. But here we have a condition where the membrane is able and ready to do its work, but it is prevented by foreign matter which has dropped down from the head and coated it. How then, can the usual treatment for indigestion be of use? Since catarrh is the came of the trouble, it is th> catarrh that must be treated. If you have catarrh of the stomach we believe that if taken faithfully for a reasonable length of time Parmint will bring you an amount of relief that will fully compensate you for the cost and time expended.' 0 CAUSE/OF DEAFNESS A cause which is responsible for a great many cases of deafness 1b ca-tarfh. The whole trouble generally begins In a simple cold in the head. During such a cold almost every person experiences that feeling of stuffiness which tells of inflammation extending into the post-nasal space where the openings of the Eustachian Tubes are located, and which' is accompaniod b~y 'catarrh 1 secretfoifs, collected In the post-nasal space, where it is difficult to blow it out of the nose or hawk it up. When such conditions have become chronic, as In catarrh", the dang-f-er is grave. Tho mucus, carrying the, germs, drops into the throat. The glue-like nauseating mass sticks for* a time to j the sfdes of the throat. The- germs are quick to take advantage of the oppor tu n i ty. They i n v ad e th e Bus taenian Tubes. Their presence and irritation it causes produce more and more mucus. Gradually this fills up the ear tube so that sounds can only pam through with difficulty. The patient finds, his hearing slowly going, When the lubes are completely filled total deafness may result. In deafness from n&sal catarrh, which affects the middle ear. It often happens that crackling sounds are present which distress and confuse the patient. These are due to the fact; that the mucus which fills the upper part and back of the throet i* covering the- opening of the Eustachian Tubes and the bursting of babbles or the movement of mucus causes the sounds, which come from the altered resonance of the ear. After a crackling report the head may seem clearer and the hearing better for a time. Later og in the case there may be crackling sounds when swallowing, which come from the efforts of a stiffened muscle to open the tubes which yield with g jerk. The above explanation of a most common cause of deafness shoalt | make it clear how absurd and useless it is to attempt to overcome tuefc. deafness by^ear drums or devices of a similar sdrt. Let it be understood, however, that Parmint is not for ear troubles other than those caused by catarrh- If your trouble is caused by scarlet fever or any disease apart from catarrh, or If caused by an injury, Parmint is not for you, and you should consult your own family physician regarding your case. - DON'T NEGLECT A COUGH If you have a cold and it has left you with a cough, no matter how slight-you ought not to neglect it. A cough is generally an Indication that there is inflammation In a dangerous place, and proper treatment should be secured at once. Delaying treatment, may mean that the cough may settle, develop and stay. Even the slightest cough indicates a danger and should receive prompt attention. Unless your cough has' become eg-trentely deep seated or has hung onto you for a long time, we believe that you will find a quick relief from your trouble by the use of Parmint. WHAT PARMINT IS? Parmint is an English formula put on the market in England about 10 years ago. It is a combination^ of ingredients having values in the treatment of catarrhl conditions, bronchial affections, etc., compounded from the best grade of material it. is possible to obtain. Parmint is put up in ont-ounce bottles in concentrated form which are labelled "Parmint-Double Strength." These one-ounce bottles can be obtained at a small cost and .the one-ounce is sufficient to make a full half-pint of Parmint ready to use when mixed, with -water and a little sugar as directed in each package.
