Chase, B. C, Fridav. December 20. 1912
_ 2.00 Per Year
The Sales Manager of the Adams River Lumber
Company Resigns to Organize and
Manage New Concern.
This week Chase loses from its business and social circles two of their most
valued members.; Mr. and Mrs. E. E.
Brooks wilr leave to-morrow (or Vancouver, where they will reside in future.
For three and a half years Mr. Brooks
has been the sales manager of the
Adams River Lumber Company. He
has resigued his position.with that company to organize the Brooks Lumber
Company, which- will have its head*
quarters in Vancouver and will carry on
a general wholesale trade in lumber,
buying from the mills and selling to the
retail dealers. The position made vacant by the resignation of Mr. Brooks
will be taken by W. F. Lammers, the
present mill superintendent.
Mr. Brooks returned on Tuesday from
Penticton, where he is interested in the
retail lumber business of the Brooks-
McKtnzie Lumber Co. While there he
purchased two more lots in a good location and made plans to extend the
scope of the business by adding a full
line of builders supplies. A large warehouse and store will be built on the recently acquired site.
During their resideuce in Chase both
Mr. and Mrs. Brooks have made for
themselves a place in the social and
business life of the town that may not
soon be filled again. In every social
activity Mrs. Brooks has been one of the
leaders, and to every enterprise for the
good of the town Mr. Brooks has given
a whole hearted support. In the organisation and carrying on of the board of
.tytliJi^V t(t I.V promotion of th.^hase
Publishing Company he was continually
in the front. While always active in
public affairs, his services to the Adams
River Lumber Company have been of a
very high order. As one of the most
deservedly popular of the company's
W, T, Slavin, Secretary of the Kamloops Board of Trade, Lays a Plan
Before the Chase Board,
At a special meeting of the board of
trade on Wednesday evening a scheme
was proposed by W. T. Slavin, secretary
of the Kamloops board, for advertising
as a district the country included in the
basin of the Thompson River. The
Kamloops board propose to issue a booklet descriptive of the resources and
climatic and other attractions of the
Thompson valley and Shuswap lakes.
In this enterprise they ask the assistance of the various boards of trade and
other interested bodies within the area
to be advertised.
The Kamloops board is asking the
city counil this year for $6000 for the
coming year to be expended in a publicity campaign. From other sources
they expect to raise enongh to swell
the amount to adout $9000. They expect to use $3000 for the salaries of a
publicity commissioner and stenographer. The commissioner would make
it his business to work for the advancement of the whole Thompson valley.
After hearing Mr, Slavin set forth
his proposition and discussing it at some
length, the board laid the matter over
till its next regular meeting.
As was expected by the official.; of
the provincial timber office the figures
for the month of November of this year
have maintained the increases shown in
the present year's figures for lumbering operations. The* total quantity of
logs scaled at the mills in the coast district amounted to 57,624,000 feet during
November, a considerable increase over
the figures of November, 1911, when the
amount was 42,849,000.
officials and as a genuine friend, Mr.
Brooks will be attended in his new
sphere by the best wishes of the Company's employees and of the citizens
We append a short sketch of the business career of Mr. Brooks, taken from
the Western Lumberman.
"E. E, Brooks waa born in New Jfork
state, and commenced his lumber experience in Iowa, in a retail yard in the
earily eighties. Removing to Seattle
in 1889, he represented F, B. Lowton &
Company, of San Francisco for about
two years. For part of the years 1892-
8 he was salesman for J. W. Godwin &
Company, a wholesale commission firm
at Seattle, where he worked up to the
day he bought ticket to go east selling
shingle, for the Ferguson Bros.' of La*
tona, Washingon. At the end of two
years he accepted a position as salesman
with the Seattle Cedar Manufasturing
Company of Ballard, Wash., whom he
represented for about four years in fourteen different states. He then joined
the McGoldrick Lumber Company, of
Spokane, as salesman in the states of
Coloardo Wyoming and Nebraska, where
he remained about five years, at the end
of that period transferring to Chase B.
C, as sales manager and assistant manager of the Adams River Lumber Company, Limited.
Mr. Brooks was one of the first four
regular travelling salesmen from the
Pacific coast; in 1898 it was practically
all missionary work, as coast lumber
-,va.*-f just beh.g iiiii\, ..Sued to tb\ reil.il
trade through the middle west. He used
to carry samples of bevel siding, casing
moulding and similar lines, in a grip
which he had made for the purpose.
He sold many cars from samples, which
is something very unusual in the lumber
Completion of the Work Was Celebrated by a Big Ball in the
Bellevue Hotel.
The new government wharf at Sicamous was completed last week. The
structure is 160 feet long with a TO foot
ell, the approach being 17 feet wide, At
low water there is a depth of nine feet
at the end of the wharf. This much
needed improvement will be a distinct
addition to the shipping facilities of
what is expected to become an important lake port.
The work was in charge of C. W.
Cameron, of Chase, who took most of
his men from here and Celista, Most of
them from here, including Mr. and Mrs.
Cameron, Mr. and Mrs. Will Bradley,
and John WeBtburg, returned on Tuesday, Those from Celista, Mr. and Mis.
Parsons, Mr. and Mrs. Bragg, Ernest
Buckingham,W. J. Reddy, and W.Gray
returned on the "Maud Annis"
The dance that wound up the operations was a complete success. The
spacious dining room of the Bellevue
hotel was well filled with about forty
couples. The music was furnished by
the well known Buck and Bragg orchestra. The wharf boys wish to think
Mrs. Congreve for rhe trouble she took
to make the evening such a pleasant
one. The proceeds of t!,e ball were
given to the Solsqua public school.
There is a debating society in New
Denver, and the leading paper in that
city says that the next debate will lie
between Christmas and New Year's It
will probably be about plum puddings,
and should be hot stuff, as these oldtimers
are welt-known and full of oratorica
efforts, concealed and otherwise.

J. W. Stewart, of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, contractors for the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway, announced yesterday the award of the sub-contracts
on the transcontinental from Fort George
westward to Fraser Lake with the additional statement that work on the
grade in that section would start in a
few weeks.
The total receipts from royalties and
other fees amounted to $48,919 in No
vember, 1912, aB compared with $43,687
in November of last year. Inspector
George D. McKay anticipates that there
will be a very considerable financial surplus shown at the end of the year in his
department as a result of the activity
during the year.
The Increase in the total number of
automobilei and motor-cycles in British
Columbia during the paBt six months
has been greater than the increase for
any preceding period of six months since
the power-driven vehicles became common. There are now 4,854 machines registered in the province. Lust June
there wers 3,800. The increase is thus
1,054, which represents a percentage increase of 27.7. Thus there are over a
quarter more cars in the province now
than there were six months ago.
Representing the American Can Company of Chicago, the largest can manufactory in the United States, Mr. J. W.
Wilkie of Chicago, general sales manager, and Mr. F. P. Kendall of Portland,1
Western manager, arrived in Vancouver
yesterday for the purpose of purchasing
a site upon which the American Can
Company proposes to erect a large factory for the manufacture of cans for
use in salmon canneries and other industries of the Pacific coast. The factory, it is said, will represent an initial
outlay of several hundred thousand dollars, employ a large number of men,
and ultimately become one of the largest
manufacturing concerns of the city.

The Canadian Northern Railway recently placed an order for fifteen thousand tons of steel rails with the steel
works at Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, for
use on the Western division. The shipment will be hauled across the continent
by C. P. R. for delivery at Kamloops
early in January.
One of the most important timber
deals on Vancouver Island and the adjacent islands has been completed, by
which a billion and a quarter feet of
timber pass under the control of the
Western Timber Holdings Company,
Ltd., u Chicago firm embracing leading
eastern capitalists.
The limits which are involved In the
1 deal are 55 around Nootka Sound, and
35 around Klngcombe Inlet, and adjacent inlets on the north side of Queen
Charlotte Sound, This represents some
35,000 acres on the Island, and 22,400
acres on the Mainland, covered with an
excellent timber growth. The vendors
are eastern capitalists, headed by R. W.
Cox, a well known timber man, for
whom the Hillis Timber _ Trading Co.
have negotiated the transfer.
The worid'sgrand championship trophy
at the International live stock show in
Chicago has been won by Mr. J, D.
McGregor of Brandon, with his steer
"Glencarnoclc Victor." Western Canada has won distinction all along the
line in all the irreat fields of agricultural
endeavor. We have proven conclusively
that we ure raising the best wheat in
the world. The oats of the Edmonton
district carried everything before them
as long ago as the time of the World's
Fair in Chicago. Red Deer possesses
the champion cow of the British Empire,
and now the most prized trophy that is
open to the beef producer to win has
crossed the border.
Artist J. Howard Smith Will Give in
Comic Cartoons a Picture
of Life in Chase
' In an early issue of the Tribune will
begin a series of large six-column cartoons by J. Howard Smith. From a
humorous point of view they tell the
store of life during the past summer in
"The Biggest Little Town on Earth."
They are conceived and executed in Mr.
Smith's very happiest vein.
They are all there, man and beast,
the old familiar figures on Chase streets
in the year 1912. In after years you
will show these pictures to your children's children and tell them that such
was life in their town In the early days
before they saw the light. That is, if
you have the pictures and the grand
They will be published in alternate
issues beginning with the first issue In
the new year. If you have any friends
who you know would like these pictures,
what better Christmas present could
you give than a subccilption to the
The concert on Friday evening but
had three objects in view and it accomplished them all. The aims wen to
give the school some drill in stage work,
to provide a good evening's entertainment, and o raise money for the children's Christmas tree.
Noonc who witnessed the performance
could doubt its educational value to the
perfomers. The training given in preparing for a play under the direction of
a skilful and experienced leader is worth
far more than the time given to it, and
more than the money that is earned
by it. Many grown-ups regret that
in our childhood such privilege was
denied us.
That the large audience heartily enjoyed not only the work by the school
but the second part of the program aa
well was evidenced by the generous applause and the numerous encores. And
the financial results wers gratifying,
the sum of (104 being received from the
sale of tickets.
Some of the leading characters in
"Tbe Great Sale" were: Jack Frost,
by Elwood Sandahl; Bluebeard, by
Laughlin Farris; Little Red Riding
Hood, by Lila Graham; Mother Hubbard,
by Alice Chase; Cinderella, by Gladys
Spence; the Old Woman Who Lived in
the Shoe, by Sarah Haldane; the Prince
by Harold McAlpin; Jack the Giant
Killer, by Walter Loffmark, Santa Claus
by Harry McLean.
The remainder of the cast was made
up of twelve fairies and a fairy queen and
four rabbits. The twelve fairies wen
Lizzie Pierce, Bertha Reid, Ethel Loyst,
Elva White, Maud Cha?e,jMary Haldane.,
Marjorie Haldane, Nellie Johnson, Nita
Tierney, Marjorie Ballard, Mathilde De
Ryckeand Evelyn Lawrence, with Vivian
Tierney as fairy queen. The four rabbits
were Disha DeRycke, WillmontGahan,
Eugene Staples and Jitnmie Stafford.
The program of the adult part haa
already been published. All the numbers were well received. Mrs. Scatchard
Miss Stewart and Messrs. Anderson and
Scatchard as Pierrots delighted the audience. Mrs. Farris gave one of her
always popular songs. Mr. Lawrence
in his banjo solos made a decided hit.
The house called back Miss Ruth Loffmark and Walter Loffmark for some
more of their popular airs on the violin
and guitar. Other numbers that "took"
were the duet by Miss Stewart and Mr.
Anderson, the monologue by Mrs. Scatchard and the song by Mr. Burling.
Santa Claus Arrives.
The Christmas Tree for the children
of the town came of? in the Black Douglas opera house on Wednesday evening.
As usual it was held a few days before
Christmas in order to leave those who
give their time to it free for preparing
their celebrations. The tree made a fine
appearance with its load of gifts and
decora tionB.
The hall was crowded with thoae who
expected gifts nnd with their friends.
A short musical programme filled in the
the time while the folks were gathering
and another followed the distribution of
gifts. Contrary to the usual custom,
Santa Claus was accompanied by his
wife, who was introduced and bowed
gracefully to the audience, but seemed
not altogether at home in her skirts.
A short dance ended the evening and
everyone went home happy.
Firemen at Concert   on Friday Did
Not Hear Alarm,   Amateurs
At the Nozrle,
WhvHi nn Friday evening last the fire
bell was rung it proved only a minor attraction. All the firemen but one were
held spellbound by the youthful all star
company playing in the Black Douglas i
opera house. That one had not ventured within the magnetic range of the
juveniles or he too would have been a
derelict from duty.
Happily the fire was not a serious
one, merely the burning out of a chimney in the residence of Dr. Scatchard.
The one faithful fireman Tom Leadstone,
ably supported by a volunteer brigade
of amateurs including such stalwarts as
Dr. ScatcharJ, A. McConnell, E. J. Haylock, J. P. Stiaw, Bill Gonyea, Louis
Beun and Ted Jones, kept a stream of
water playing over the roof uutil all
danger was past. The only unprofessional thing they did was that instead
of throwing the water up and letting it
fall on the roof they guided the Btream
directly up the pitch, raising the shingles
and irrigating the beds in the rooms below. But even that was better than
letting the house burn. TWO

never saw him letters written on inferior paper with

of one fifth of a cent extra on each letter he
might give to each correspondent the pleasure of

So long as Christmas keeps coming round once a year there " ill
always be at least one time in the yeur when everybody is young again.
The irresistible spirit of gladness gets into our bones and ouce more
for us "tie great heart of existence beats for ever like a boy's."
If it could be Christmas all the year round perhapB we should
never grow old. At any rate, so long as there are children tm this old
planet Christmas will continue to be the happiest season of thtt year.
The scheme of the Kamloops Imard of trade that was laid before
the Chnse board ou Wednesday is n tjood one and one thnt should have
been undertaken sooner. A few months ago a correspondent in the
columns of the Tribune emphasised tin* need of something being done
in a co-operative way to givi publicity to the Shuswap district as a
The plan of the KatrilonpH board embraces a still wider urea. They
would include the whole of the territory drained by the Thompson and
its tributaries. It may lie objected that so large an area includes sections so different in climatic conditions that they cannot be advantage-
onsly grouped tor tbe purposes of advertising. The Shuswap district
does not call for irrigation while the couu'ry to the west is useless with
out it. Whether or not it would lie a mistake to unite with Kamloops
and Asheroft in such a way that we should all be thought of as oue
district is n question thnt will be carefully considered before committing
ourselves to a joint advertising scheme.
That the development of the Shuswap valley is vital to the interests
of Kamloops cannot be questioned. Tlmt city aspires to be, and in
the natural ctrurse of events will la; n great commercial centre, ln
onler to become bucIi the growth of its tributary country must be fostered. We look to Kamloops t* take the lead iu getting thnt tributary
country into the public eye. In anything they may do to advertise
their hinterland they will have the support of tlie whole district, tn
its present stage of iidvauceineiit. however, the Shuswap district cannot
be expected to shoulder any considerable portion of the nuiincial burden
involved. ..-,;;
A misunderstanding seems to have arisen in the minds of many
of our friends up the lake as to what the Chase Central Board of Trade
and the Tribune wish for in the building of roads iu that direction.
The Board of Trade has been very definite in what it has been
asking for during several months. Its request has been and ia for a
road to connect Chase with Notch Hill, with a bridge at Squiinx connecting with the settlement on the uorth side. The following is from
our issue of July 19*.
At the meeting last Monday night of the Chase Central Board of
Trade, H. A. Fowler of Celista sailed the attention of the memtiers
-   '  to a matter that is of first importance to Chase, audull the country
to the sast along both sides of the lake.
His proposition was that a petition be circulated in Chase, Celista
Notch Hill and Sorrento asking for a road np the lake from CluiBe
to Notch Hill, with a bridge over the little river to connect with roads
to Celista and  Adam's Lake.   There are no great diffiiculties in
the way of construction, and the advantage to thecouutry traversed
can scarcely be estimated,
Such a road would also be of use to the settlers up Trail Crtt-k and
the upper part of Turtle Valley, giviug them a shorter route to town.
The Board gave its hearty assent to the proposition.   It was
suggested that the settlers association at Celista draw the petition
andcirculute it there, after which it might be handled by Notch Hill
and Chase Conservative associations.
Al the time of the viBit of the Deputy Minister of Public Works
the committee appointed to meet him agreed to ask for the roads and
bridge mentioned above. That was a couple of hours before his arrival.
When, however, the committee was told that evening that a road up
the south side could not be completed till after the double tracking of
of the C. P. R. had been finished they then asked that in that event
a road be put up the north side of the lake.
The people of Chase are strongly in favor of a road on the south
side. It would be worth more to the town aud to the surrounding
country than the other route. But our choice is not between a road on
the south side and oue on the north side. Our choice lies between a
road on the north side and uo road at nil, except as far as Siormout, for
au indefinite period.
If Chase und Celista nsk for the South shore route they will get a
road from Chnse to Stnrmont ami an uncertain wait for the. rest. If,
on the other hand, they ask for a road ou the north Bide there can be no
obstacle to its completion except the lack of the necessary appropriation.
If a road ou the north side would delay the building of one ou the
south side things might appear in a difiicrent light. But we contend
that it would not. Aud we cannot see the use of tying up ten thousand
dollars iu a road that will not lie of .ise until nt some indefinite future
time it iB linked up witb other roads. That is what it will amount to if
the money is put into a road to Btoruiont mid the completion deferretl
till after the changing of the railway grade.
The Tribune does not believe that the people of Celista wish to remain isolated for n few years longer. They are doubtless unware that
if they do not ask for a road, on the north side they are practically saying that they are willing to wait for their outlet until the proposed rail
way changes nre an accomplished fact.
Interested parties are calling for tenders for a brand new water
wagon to sent twenty. Must have puiiuuiatic tires aud be well upholstered. Tenders will lie received at 'the Tribune office for delivery
by January first. j .
Work iB lieiug pushed on the new resevoir iu anticipation of a
largely increased consumption of Nature's lieveruge during the first few
days of 1913.
The Tribnue wishes nil its rentiers a Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year, and admonishes them to remember tl.oir failing.
It is not often that a small town gets auy but third rate travelling
theatrical companies. Almost all such towns have those among their
own residents who can do just as good acting as these inferior profes*
sinnals. II we would depend upon ourselves for our dramatic enter*
tainment we should get more fun out of it aud keep our money at home.
To give a good house to some of the road companies that come to
Chase is to encourage bad noting
There has been more geuuine entertainment iu such shows as
"Why Smith Left Home" that was put on last spring by the local
dramatic club and in the recent productions by the Blind Bay amateurs
and the public school than in most of the plays put on here by profes*
sionals. The big houses the amateurs get is evidence. We could stand
a few more amateur performances during the winter. There's a hundred
dollar house waiting for the Chase Dramatic Club when they get ready
(or another show.
Save Christmas.
In'the Christmas Harper's Baser,
just out, Margaret Deland writes a remarkable article which she calls Save
Christmas! She handles the Christmas
present question without gloves. In
this Bazar article she declares that
"to commemorate the Supreme Gift to
the world by weariness and irritation
is to prof ane an ideal. When Christmas
Day arouses profanity, it is time for
people who care for it to rise up and
protect itl And there can be no possible
doubt that the Christmas folly which
causes "swearing" is increasing. By
the first of December the very air seems
to tingle with the mad compulsion of
giving. Contrast the number of gifts
we feel we 'must'make with the number
we made ten years ago; contrast the
elaboration of ribbons, papers, boxes,
labels, and what not, with the casual
bundle we used to leave at a neighbor's
door. Shopkeepers foster the folly,
custom takes it for granted, and timidity cannot resist it. The result is a
whirl of meaningless exasperation. The
department stores the two week's
before Christmas are a sight that
make thoughtful women ashamed of
their sex (men are so few and
far between at the crowded, ill-temp
ered, vulgar bargain counters, that
they don't count.) But look at the
pushing, tired women, buying things
which very often they do not wish to
purchase, for people who cannot conceivably want to own them!"

Rush For Homesteads.
The following is from the annual report of the Dominion land agent at Kamloops for the yearendingMarch31,1912,
which has just been published.
'The general Inquiries, particularly
in person, for land within the Shuswap,
upper Columbia and lower Columbia
divisions, part of my district, but held
in reservation, have, been exceedingly
heavy, and the proposed reduction in
tho area to be granted under homestead
entry would appear to be highly satisfactory to all except the interested
squatters, many of whom, however, in
view of their length of residence and

A Competent Koat-
man Who Knows
the Luke   ....
Yesterday someone told mt* of a Society for th., Abolitiji. of Oiristmaa
Giving. We'were watching an army of
shoppers in retreat. Their faces were
drawn and tired, their arms were full
of grotesque looking bundles, and their
umbrellas were diipping. They had
spent "tlie day tramping through the
rain from one store to -mother, many
of them working out the yearly problem
of making a very few dollar* purchase
presents for very many friend*.
Surely tlie custom of Christmas giving must have had a beautiful origin.
l.ove only hua the right or the power to
give. What better day to magnify the
olliees of love than the one on which we
commsmorate the coming to our world
of Love incarnate?
No hint of this could I find in the fuces
of the jaded shoppers. They had\ the
appearance, not of cheerful givers, but
of people striving to pay ungrateful
debts. Perhaps they were. Remembering Emerson's words, "The only gift is
a portion of thyself," I wondered if they
were conscious of any vital connection
between themselves and the bundles
they carried. The contents of these
will soon be wrapped up in separate
parcels, tied with holly ribbon, decorated with Christmas seals, and dropped
with a sigh of relief into the mail box.
That was a pretty fancy that whispered
prayers and blessings into a gift while
it was in preparation; now the most
pious ejaculation is often one of thankfulness that it is out of sight at last.
The Society for the Abolition of Christmas Giving is an expression of the instinct to get back to first principles.
Nevertheless it is usually a waste of energy -to attack established customs.
They are "little systems," "broken
lights" of some great truth that is
"more than they." As the custom becomes more formal less of the spirit
that gave it being is reflected, until at
last it disappeares altogether. Then
"the old order changeth." As the
tendency of Bpirit is to escape from
form, so lifeless forms tend to dissolve,
"lest one good custom should corrupt
the world."
My opinion is that in the matter of
Christmas giving we have almost filled
up the measire of our sins. Already the
finer spirits shrink from committing to
the vulgar mass of the Christmas' mail
what should be sacred tokens. My
friend should not need a gift to assure
him of my friendship. "When the
waters are at levep then my goods pass
to him and his to me." Realizing this,
we will never insult our friends by exclaiming that their gifts are too great,
brood in hurt silence when the tokens
nor do not appear.
But theChriBtmas trees, the filling of
tiny stockings, the family gatherings,
the free dinners to the poor, all that
helps to make this the most joyous season,���will these things pass? Not while
the principle of peace on earth, good
will to men lives on in human hearts,
Time may alter the form of its expression, but the form only. Neither will
intimate friends cease to exchange
gifts. They could not if they would.
Were it legally forbidden they would
obey a higher law.
"Gifts from one who loved me,
'Twas high time they came;
When he ceased to love me
Time they ceased for shame."
The teat of true giving is spontaneous*
ness.   "Give until you feel it" shrieked
the  missionary    evangelist.   As    the
squirming  hearers    opened   reluctant
pocket-books the preacher glowed with
triumph, and after the contribution had
been counted he praised them for their
generous giving.   Nevertheless it was
not giving at all, but a "kind of symbolical sin-offering or payment of blackmail."
The practice of writing Christmas
letters commends itself as a good one.
From my friend I receive a letter. It
is a spiritual gift, worthy of him to give
and of me to receive." If he sends me
a work-box, a book, or a cheque, and I
receive it with the customary just-what-
I-wanted gratitude, my emotion is open
to suspicion; but when I rejoice at a
letter it is because of the one whose
message it brings to me.
Perhaps we could got along without
the Society for the Abolition of Christ-
hihb Giving. Wo do not need in the
autumn to gather the dead leaves from
the trees. The living branch throws off
that to which it has no longer any vital
relation. So socity, whether organized
for the purpose or not, is continually
ridding itself of its .withered customs.
We believe, nevertheless, that the Soul
that once animated these forms is alive
for evermore; that could Christmas Snd
Christmas giving be stamped out of the
world and effaced from all men's memories, this spirit would re-people tho
heavens with shining choirs singing of
peace and good will; once more men
would see a Star in the East antl brln_
their gifts of gold and frankincense and

Chase has all the advantages that go tb the
making of a great manufacturing centre.
ib; tfi,.M
First of all there is it's location.
Chase is situated at the outlet of a system of
lakes that tap a country rich in raw material.
There is cedar, fir, pine and spruce timber running
into billions of feet. There are limestone and marble,
copper, zinc and gold in quantities that are just
beginning to be discovered, and appreciated. There
is the farm land to feed with vegetables and fruit
a large manufacturing population.
The vast wheatfields of the northwest provinces
supply the breadstuffs, at the same time that they
furnish one of the best markets in the world for
manufactured products.
���il/  il/' Hi
The twentieth century motor power, electricity
can nowhere be developed more economically than
from the streams that abound near Chase.
