THE BANKS OF CANADA The closing of the year 1912 has brought out the usual bank statements accompanied by the addresses of the Presidents and General Managers- of these institutions. Their reading is Interesting as they show in a striking manner the prosperity of the country, and deal with economic matters In a first hand way. Those who know any thing of Canadian banking methods know the stability of these Institu tions, and the high character of the men who are placed in charge. In discussing the land situation the Pres. ldent of the Union Bank of Canada, whose branches are to be found in all parts of the Canadian West, said: "A good deal has been said about speculation in land.- The increase In land values has added enormously .to the assets of Western business, and has to some extent formed a basis for extended credit, but this Is not felt to be a drawback when the value is real and convertible." We consider that a business, standing which is strength ened and enhanced by property hold ings is entitled to a reasonable en largement of credit for legitimate busi ness operations." It will thus be seen that the banks recognize the certain rise In the value of farm lands In Western Canada. When the facts are known of the won derful producing qualities of farm lands in the Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, it is sim ple to understand the liberal stand taken by the banks. Living not far from Lashburn, Sask., Is a farmer named Clarke who in 1912 secured a crop of Marquis Wheat, yielding 76 bushels per acre. This Is spoken of as a record yield, and this is doubtless true, but several cases have been brought to notice where yields almost as large have been pro duced, and in different parts of the country. During the past year there have been reported many yields of from 35 to 45 bushels of wheat to the acre. Oats, too, were a success ful crop, and so was the barley crop. Wheat that would yield 40 bushels per acre, would bring on the market 70c (a fair figure) per bushel, a gross return of $28.00 per acre. Al low $12.00 per acre (an outside figure) there would be a-balance of $16.00 per acre net profit. This figure .should satisfy anyone having land that cost less than $100.00 per acre. Very much less return than this proves satisfac tory to those holding lands In Iowa and Illinois worth from $250 to $300 per acre. The latest Government returns give an approximate estimate of four hun dred thousand of an immigration to Canada during 1912. Of this, number 200,000 will be from the United States. Most of these are of tho farming class and It is not difficult to understand why farming lands in Canada will ad vance from ten to twenty per cent within the next twelve months. There fore Investment in Western Canadian lands is not looked upon as being in the speculative class. Those fortunate enough to secure free homesteads In Canada will acquire in the lntrlnslo value of the land alone the best pps alble start for a splendid future. Ad vertisement She Knows.

Rockefeller, Jr., Tells of Its Origin, Work and Plans for the In vestigatlon of Vice Conditions. New York. In order that the pub lic might better understand the Bu reau of Social Hygiene, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., gave out a statement explaining the'ortgln, work and plans of that institution. The bureau, he said, came into existence about two years ago as a result of the work of a special grand Jury appointed to in vestigate the white slave traffic in New York City. This Jury recom mended that a public commission be appointed to study the social evil. Mr. Rockefeller was foreman of that grand jury and he thereafter gave the subject deep thought and conferred with a large number of leading men and women. "These con ferences,'" says Mr. Rockefeller, "de veloped the feeling that a public com mission would labor under a number of disadvantages, such as the fact that it would be short lived; that its work would be done publicly; that at best it could hardly do more than present recommendations. So the conviction grew that In order to make a real and lasting improvement in conditions, a permanent organization fchould be created, the continuation of which would not be dependent upon a tern? porary wave of reform, nor upon the life of any man or group of men, but which would go on, generation after generation, continuously making war fare apainst the forces ct evil. It also appeared that a private organi zation would have, among other ad vantages, a 'certain freedom from pub licity and from political bias, which a publicly appointed commission could not so easily avoid. "Therefore, as the initial step, in the winter of 1911 the Bureau of So cial Hygiene was formed. Its present members are Miss Katharine Bement Davis, superintendent of the New York State Reformatory for Vtomen at Bedford Hills, N. Y.; Paul M. War burg, of the Ann of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.; Starr J. Murphy, of the New York bar, and John D. Rockefeller, Jr. As the work develops new mem bers may be added. "One -of the first things undertaken by the bureau was the establishment at Bedford Hills, adjacent to the' re formatory, of a laboratory of social hygiene, under Miss Davis' direction. In this laboratory ft is proposed to study from the physical, mental, Bocial and moral side each person committed to the reformatory! This study will be carried on by experts and each case will . be kept under observation for from three weekB to three months, as may be required. When the diag nosis is completed, it is hoped that the laboratory will be In position to roc ommend the treatment most likely to reform the Individual, or, if reforma tion Is Impossible, to recommend per manent custodial care. Furthermore, reaching out beyond the individuals Involved, it is believed that thus im portant contributions may be made to a fuller knowledge of the conditions ultimately responsible for vice. If this experiment is successful the prin ciple may , prove applicable to all classes of criminals and the conditions precedent to crime, and lead to' lines of action not only more scientific and humane but also less wasteful than those at present followed." That it work might be done intelli gently the bureau employed George J. Kneeland to make a comprehensive survey of vice conditions In New York, and Abraham Flexner to study the social evil in Europe, and their reports are now being prepared. These studies will be followed by others In various American cities, and it is the hope of the bureau that, based upon all of them, may be devised a prac tical plan for dealing with the social evil. In conclusion . Mr. Rockefeller's statement says; "It cannot be too strongly emphasized that the spirit which dominates the work of the bu reau is not sensational or sentimen tal or hysterleaJ; that It is not a spirit of criticism of public officials; but that it is essentially a spirit of con structive suggestion and of deep sci entific as well as human interest in a great world problem."

It isn't being done. Platinum wedding rings are the newest thing. Mile. Jeanne Provost, a French actress, is to blame. She thought of the idea, and when she was married to M. Firpo, he had one. Platinum rings are more expensive than gold and wear better. Just why an actress, especially a French ac tress, should want a wedding ring that will last a long while the jewel ers haven't learned.
