What Should be a Great Industry THE DEVELOPMENT of the sheep breeding industry in Can- ada cannot but prove a matter of live interest until such time that it is seriously taken hold of. That there is a great opportunity and much scope for turning ibis int6 a lucra- tive business becomes evident from the opinion of experts. Mr. MaeRae, one of the two mem- members of the Dominion Department of Agriculture who have been touring the prairie prpvinces recently oil a special mission for developing the sheep industry, speaks of it as a back- ward one, in that there are now only, about two million sheep in Canada, where once there were about three uiA a half million. Canada now im- ports about twelve 'million pounds of "trGOi annually. Auuiit five inmiuil pounds of thte is fine wool of a kind that would 'bii imported, in any event About a million and a half pounds.is from the back of classes of sheep "which we do not have but Qoald fctve. About three and a hiilf-cuilHan. ju is competitive wool of i Mad w is raised and could, bo rtivad to ad- vantage in this country, if we three million sheep in Canada we would then begin to have a aad would be able io work up an ex- port irade with Great Britain where there is an excellent market. As a paying industry sheep raising must- appeal to farmers in that it is stated that there is no class of farm fug which yields a larger profit. The gross profit in one season ts lliii to 130" per cent., and it requires little labor and comparatively small capi- tal, iWhat it does require, however, is skill and intelligence. is needed, an education amongst farmers as to knowledge of breeds, and to the feed- ng Bud maintenance of the animals. _Apari from the matter of the wool, there is the matter of the carcases of the animals -for food purposes. It Is' significant that in a distinctly agricul- tural country, not only is butter large- ly imported from. New Zealand, but from Australia come in thousands of- i-iueuoes 01 frozen mutton into British Columbia. The following assertion is important, namely, that Canada IE the only country, or at any rate the only part of the Empire, which can send chilled mutton to Great Britain. Other countries are too far away, and the to be sent frozen.

Ami tho order was obeyed. It braced otticers and men. They stood to their duty, to die at their posts. a "Women and children first." It is i the rule of the sea, u rule made by An'glo-Saxon men. and enforced on im.iiy a staggering ship. The Titanic Is but the latest instance. The historian, Guglielmu For- rero of iltaly. does not hellove that tho compelling'powers in history are ma- terial, economic. The oponitlng causes lie holds to be psychological. And in that theory he has written history of Home. This disaster of the Titanic exhibit broadly to the world just those pay chological characteristics that, are re sponsible for England and that Em pire upon which -the sun does not set The British race sticks to its post. Its men die women.and children. No race the w.orki has won great r victories "than have i he'Turks.'the Arabs, the .Mongols. But the test comes defeat. And 'in defeat the Uritish shine. On many a stricken field they still held together; in many a wreck they have played the game like men; They know well hov.- to conduct forlorn hopes. So that their history, like thai of Rome, is studded with successful de- feats, ay in the case this Titanic. The wreck lies upon the AtlanUc's bed; but it is written for all tbe world to see how the law of duty was ful- filled upon that ship.
