STORY OP SOUP
There was. for example, the little
matter of Captain H'nrl Bolshon's
plate of soup, one of the French
line stewards started for the bridge
three times with a plate of hot broth
intended to refresh the ship's com

"n his first trip the Steward was
half way up a stair when La Savole
put her nose Into a wave and sent
both r-oup and steward 20 feet down
Upon a second attempt, the stew
ard took a short cut, which led him
on deck for a moment Ia Savole
chose that moment to roll, she rolled
Until lier flinnnlo uirn aim rmi narall!
I with the ea, till everything not fas
tened down, fell with nn appalling
clatter to deck and floor. The stew
ard slid toward tho rail, a flip of a
comber washed him back toward tho
bridge ladder, WhU h he clutched, and
when, half drowned, he opened hie
eyes the pall of soup had vanished
His third attempt was made' during
tho arrival of that sea which lifted
tho saloon piano from Its fastenings,
l ore It almo.st celling high, and threw
It against the end of the music room.
When the tons of water had lashed
through the vessel and off again, the
steward found himself and an empty
soup pall on top of a table outside
the saloon, with no very clear Idea
of how ho Fi there. Bruised anu
dazed ho was relieved by a com
panion who managed to carry the
soup to Its destination.
THINKS OP MUSIC.
Tho things a captain thinks about
uch a time aro odd and not n- ci -sarlly
related. Captain Bolshon
thought of a hot hath, lie thought of
Sandy Hook Which he earnestly de
sired to behold. He thought of a cer
tain Christmas festival. but he
thought chiefly of how to keep up
tho moralo of the p n ssenp-.-rs and
crew. Thus it happened that h

ablo to leave their rooms cmiled
bravely at the syncopation, trlng to!
forget that they were "battered down" I
and virtually Imprisoned in a boat'
which seemed llkeyl to turn over any1
moment. When the piano banked
across the saloon, where many men
and women were seated, Purser I
Plcard managed to laugh. He admits1
that he quaked inwardly, for o 1,000

cated by tho statement recently is
sued by the department of immigra
tion that since the yesir 1914, more
than 700.000 people have left Canada
for other countries.
It is probable for this reason th:it
the dominion government has under
taken to sponsor a movement to
stimulate tho emigration of settlers to

completo reversal of the policy In
force from November 30. 1920. to May

During tho last ten years Canada
has lost more by emigration to tho

did not even maintain the Increase

Although monetary and other re

partially, immigration continues to

Here Is what the Honorable Charlos
Stewart, acting minister of Immigra
tion, lias to say on the subject:
"We propose to initiate at onco an
active advertising and publicity cam
paign in Great Britain and the I'nited
Btates and to extend Into the favored
countries of northern Europe as cir
cumstances permit. We shall partic
ularly seek settlers with some capital
in a position to buy and cultivate the
vacant lands now adjacent to our
railways, but we shall also provide de
partmental machinery to bring the
tenant farmer into touch with rental
opportunities which will give him B
chance to begin 1

British government's offer to pay half
the cost of an emigrant's faro to a
dominion provided the dominion fur
nished the other half. This Is in con
trast with the action of Australia,
where 6,000,000 pounds is to be spent
in assisting residents of tho British
isles to settle in the commonwealth.
LUKE is ABSENT.
Beferrlng to the lure of free lands,
which has turned the tide of immigra
tion from Canada to Australia, Mr.
"One of the magnets which was
most potent In attracting settlement
to Canada in tho early years of the
century tho granting of public lands

factor to tho extent It previously was.
There are still large areas of crown
