that the first vein will be cut at
a point 250 feet from the portal.

into a vein of low grade ore 65

A   PEACE   EXPEDITION
PROFESSIONAL and hysterical pacifists who denounced Lloyd George for sending troops and ships to Turkey, and for
asking the dominions whether the empire
could count on their support, will now have
time to reconsider. So far as can now be
seen the British military occupation of the
neutral territory and the straits saved
Europe from another war. Any form of
remonstrance or protest without British
arms and ships behind it would have been
idle. Assurances of support from Australia and New Zealand were some help in
that emergency, and if Canada had joined
in them their value would have been increased. We can not know whether the
peril has been averted, but if it has the
credit belongs to the British empire.
wishes and the heartiest assistance should
be given to those who are trying to supply
the Canadian market with Canadian produce. The Canadian act which authorizes
the customs authorities to intervene when
foreign fruits and other products of the
land are sold in Canada at prices which
prejudicially and injuriously affect Canadian producers, should operate effectively
at a time like this. In addition, sellers
and buyers ought to apply voluntarily the
same principles to their own trading.
British Columbia fruit growers and gardeners are not getting rich. If western
Canada is made a slaughter market for
United States surplus goods our own
growers are likely to grow poor. It is good
business and good citizenship all round for
British Columbia producers, traders and
consumers to stand together.

HEARST   FAILS
WILLIAM   RANDOLPH     HEARST
DURING the last two years demands
have been made from some quarters for
the disbandment of the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police. This body, which practically continues the Northwest Mounted
Police, has been more widely distributed
than formerly, and is available for emergencies at
times and in places where the local force is not
adequate. The government has found that those
who wish the force retained are many times more1
than those who desire its destruction.
Friends of the Mounted Police are largely in-
creased on the prairies during the last few
months. Startling bank robberies have heen following each other in the three prairie provinces.
They have produced an insistent call for the distribution of a large number of mounted policemen
of the familiar type along the frontier and other <
localities where banks have been robbed. Everywhere in the prairie provinces the Mounted Police
is a popular body and in great demand. Settlers
recall the days when criminals were hunted down '

Two frogs fell into a milk pail deep,
And one poor frog did nothing but weep:
He sank to the bottom as heavy as lead,
And there in the morning they found
him dead.
The other frog shouted:   "I'll have a
good try,
The pail may be deep, but I don't wish
to die."
He churned up the milk with his legs
fore and hind���
There's nothing like havinga masterful
mind���
For when the next morning this froggy
was found.
On a pat of  fresh  butter he   floated
around.
