Dalby B. Morkill, who has been
engaged in surveying mineral
claims all summer, visited the

there is a splendid showing on
the property, which is looking
better every day as a result of
the work being done by Daly.

with the results so far obtained,
and that the community will

likely he is developing another
mine, and living up to his Premier reputation. Mr. Morkill has

Look at the map of Britiab Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 milea from the tame
point in the Peace River country that
is reached in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realised.
Immense deposits of sMhraciu. coal
have been located and the president of
the Peefe *is.'**i Board of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
•oat grades higher   then   Pennsylvania
E»i«i'siv« MkploraUuii wor* i« being
carried on in connection with oil and
already startling results have been obtained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
aud enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The area under cultivation at present
is only about 300,000 acres and the
population of the whole district is
about 20,000. The first grain was sent
out of the country three years ago, and
consisted of less than one thousand
bushels. Last year nine million bushels
were produced from about a quarter
million aires, the average wheat yield
being thirty-live bushsls to the acre, or
nearly double the average of other
perilous of Alberta. The land is also
well adapted for the raising of stock of
all kindki, particularly hoKs.
It is resaonable to suppose thai if

NOVEMBER 11, 1921, the anniversary of that memorable three short years
ago, when the joyous news was heralded
far and wide that the Armistice had been
signed, bringing to a close a war that had
cost the lives of millions of not only men,
but women and children. A war that for
magnitude and brutality, was unexcelled
in the history of the world. A war that
commenced in August, 1914, with the
battle cry of nations, the rattle of drums,
and the cheers of the throngs to the tramp
of marching feet, for
"Far and near, high and clear.
Hark to the call of w«r!
Over the gorse and the golden dells,
Ringing and swinging of clamourous bells,
Preying and saying of wild farewells.
War!   War!   War!
Women all, hear the call,
The pitiless call of war!
Look your last on your dearest ones,
Brothers and husbands, fathers and sons;
Swift they go to the ravenous guns,
The gluttonous guns ef war."
by the Canadians, and their terrible
casualty lists, casting a gloom over the
land that was hard to shake off, and which
took more to the recruiting offices, as the
lists of deid and wounded increased, and
stories of the hell of gas, wire, machine
guns and bombs, leaked through, such as:
■'Under a stooping sky
Of seething, sulphurous fire,
Scorching me up as lie
Here on the . . . the wire . . .
PROFESSIONAL   CARDS.
Hasten, Oh God!   Thy night!
Hide from my eyes the sight
Of the body I stare and see
Shattered so hideously.
I can't believe its's mine,
My body was white and sweet,
Flawless and fair and fine,
Shapeless from head to feet.
Oh, no I can never be
The thing of horror I see
Under the rifle fire,
Trussed on the wire . . . the wire . . .
The enlistments increased, until at
last out of a population of some 8,000,000
people, Canada sont 418,000 men to France.
Of these 60,000 are dead, most of them
buried in France.
"I am horror-haunted from the hell they found me:
I am battle broken, all I want is rest.
Oh!   It's good to die so, blossoms all around me,
And a kind lark singing in the golden west.

lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire,
