CITY BUILDING, RAILWAY BUILD
ING AND FARM OPERATIONS
IN WESTERN CANADA,
Tho machinery, tho monoy and the
men for carrying on tho big works in
Western Cnnada in 1913 aro already
provided for. Tho splendid harvest
which was successfully garnered, and
by this time mostly marketed, re
sponded to tho big hopes that wero
had for It early In tho season, and In
spired capitalists and railroads to
further Investment and building.
from lake ports to mountain base
thero will bo carried on tho biggest
operations in city building and rail
way construction thnt has over taken
placo In that country. Tho Canadian
Pacific railway has everything In
waiting to continuo their great work
of doublo tracking tho system nnd by
the tlmo tho Pnnnma Conal Is capon to
traffic there will bo a doublo line of
steel from Lake Superior to tho Pa
cific coast. Tho cost will exceed
thirty million dollars. Tho Grand
Trunk Pacific plan of building a first
class trunk lino nnd then fecdors at
various points will bo carried forward
with nil tho force that great company
can put Into the work. Tho Canadian
Northern Is prepared to put Into mo
tion nil tho energy thnt young giant
of finance and rnllroad building can
put Into various enterprises of provid
ing nnd creating transportation facili
ties. Hullding operations in tho several
cities, thnt havo already marked
themselves a placo In tho list of suc
cessful and growing cities, will bo
carried on more largely than over.
Schools, public buildings, parliament
buildings, colleges, business blocks,
apartments, prlvato residences, banks,
street nnd other municipal Improve
ments have their appropriation ready,
nnd tho record of 1913 will bo some
thing wonderful. Other places which
are towns today will innko tho rapid,
strides, that aro expected and will bo"
como cities. Thero will be other Ed
montons, Calgarys, Iteglnas nnd Sas
katoons, other places that may In
their activity help to convince tho
outer world of tho solidity nnd perma
nency of tho Canndlnn West. Tho
country Is lnrgo and wide nnd broad
and tho ends of its great width nnd
length nro but tho limits of Its agri
cultural area. Its peoplo aro progres
sive, they aro strong, thero Is no
enervation there. Tho country teems
with this life, this ambition, this
fondness to create nnd to uso tho
forces that await tho settler. If they
como from tho South, and hundrcda
of thousands of thorn hnvo, they aro
now tho dominant men of tho North,
nnd they hnvo Imbibed of tho spirit
of tho North. Therefore It 1b fair to
say that no portion of tho continent
will show such wonderful results as
Western Canada, and the year 1913
will be but tho beginning of a won
derful nnd great future. And in this
futuro tho 200,000 Amerlcnns who
madn It their home, and those who
preceded them, will bo a consldorablo

would bo met either by reduction of

The very thought of the hospital operating table and tho

It is quite true that some of these trouble? may reach a stage

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. This fact is
attested by the grateful letters they write to us after their
