The principle underlying tbe scheme of Mothers' Pensions is' that govern- rneuu, at present constituted in the provinces, assume the place of the breadwinner who it us been remove c by death or, us in ihe case of the insane, who is unable to support his wife and family.

The law places her In a position to remain at home instead cf having lo "leave it tj find work lor supporting her family If this responsibility is properly i cd its importance can be realised !n the effect what home training, as i is properly regarded, will have on the young. The legislation in what I' aims at has much to commend it.

Canadian bacon during tho war established-1U superiority in Sthe British Isles that exports of it are now only limited to the amount produced. Imports of Canadian bacnu are now sixteen times pre-war figures, and In a recent canvass of importers n Great Britain, thisre was enthusias- tic commendation of the- Dominion product. With, the reputation Canadian bacon has-obtained in Great Britain, there a a new and promising field open for the raise- piga. Not only Is Ihe outlook encouraging In tbe putation which Canadian bacon-has established for-itself but the present fatb of exchange Is all in favor ol Canadian meat exports to Great Bri- tain as compared to exports from tho United Slates. It will be a little time before the exchange adjusts itself, and meanwhile, with the added regard in ivhich Canadian Is held, there is the great possibility afforded ol holding and keeping the British mar- ket for Canadian bacon. This should mean a great future for the raising ol pigs. fFrom Our Own Corrsspor.denil TABER, March Monday eve- ning.
