Government Scalers' Reports Show
Big Development on
the Coast,
Indications that, in spite of the financial
stringency in some quarters, the development of the natural resources of the
province ie proceeding commensurate with the moat sanguine predication
ia made patent in tha reports of the in*
specter's department for the quarter
ending June 90.
In the three months, April, Hay and
June, 1918, no leaa than 240,000,000 feet
of loga were scaled by the Government's
scalera on the Coaat district, this is a
gain of 22,000,000 feet over the quantity
scaled for the corresponding quarter of
1912, when 218,000,000 feet were measured, and establishes a record. In
other words, the logging operations so
far this year have been greatly in adv
ance of those of any previous season.
The reports from the interior districts
are not yet hand, but a proportionately
large increase is looked for there also.
Assessment Fixed At
$1800 For Year
$1800 was the amount fixed by the
annual school meeting to be raised this
year for school purposes. This is $400
more than laat year, the extra amount
being to allow the trustees if necessary
to make certain improvements in the
school building.
The report of the ietiring secretary,
Jas. A. Graham, showed that in addition
to the usual expenditure for the past
year a fence had been placed around the
school grounds at a cost of more than
$200. There is still some work to be
done to put the grounds in proper shape.
Both the teachers, Mr. Burling Bnd
Miss Fredea, had been teaching on temporary licenses, and as the Education
Department had advised that they would
not issue any such certificates for the
coming term it becomes necessary to
secure new teachers.
A. S. Farris wss elected auditor in
place of G. W. Rittman and T. J. Kinley takes the place on the boaad of trustees of Jas. A. Graham, whose term had

Having finished my repast in a public
dining hall, you know, I arose and requested of the waiter that he regain my
hat and my walking stick. The fellow
summoned a boy in uniform and addressed him like this:
"Hey, kid, this gents wants his lid and
lumber. Go over to the coat-tree and
shake off the fruit until you come across
a gas-stove toque and a yellow swagger-
mast. Don't worry, Mister. The

Rural Mail Routes
From Salmon Arm.
Salmon Arm, July 214.���Mr. Clarke,
an official of the post office department
at Vancouver, in answer to petitions
asking for rural mail delivery convent
ences, was in the city on Tuesday and
Wednesday maplng personal enquiries.
On Tuesbay, accompanied by J. L.
Jackson, postmaster, he went over the
route proposed to be established from
Salmon Arm to Gleneden and return,
and decided that this waa both practicable and warranted.
On Wednesday the same two gentlemen made a trip up Salmon river to
Glenemma, a distance of 20 miles, and
after discussing the matter with re-
Bit' ,nts along the line and making full
enquiries into conditions, Mr. Clarke
decided that this delivery line should
also be inaugurated. Neither will, however, be in operation much before October' and it has not been decided wheth
er mail will be delivered twice or three
times per week at the start.
Mr. Clarke was, we understand, more
than surprised to find such a valley
tucked away back in the hills south of
the town. He was impressed with the
natural beauties of the district, as well
as the evidences of the wonderful fertility of the Boil along the line of travel.
Many Trespassers
Killed on Railways.
Moose Jaw, July 15.���Since January
1, thirty-five people have been killed
while trespassing on the western lines
of the Canadian Pacific railway. During the past two weeks four babies were
killed between Winnipeg and Calgary.
Drastic methods will be adopted by the
company to^prevent this trespassing in
the future Jand many prosecutions are
expected to follow, for it is strictly
against,the rules of the company for
anyone not being an employe to walk
on the track or In the yards.
Forty-eight Foxes Sold.
Edmonton, July 15.���One of the biggest sales of live foxes ever affected
haa just been completed by Jack Les-
sard, brother of P. B. Lessard, M. P. P.
M. Lessard haa been at Wabiscow, 150
miles from Athabasca Landing, collecting foxes. With the assistance of Indian and half-breed trappers he succeed
ed in acquainting 48 reds, blacks and
silvers, /The foxes have all now either

Little River Reserve
From our Indian Correspondent.
The Indisns of Little River (Squilax)

Peter Toma was up the Scotch Creek

One of the school boys came home sick
but now he seems to be getting better

Sees Big Changes.
Albert Chaae of the firm of Chaae
Bros., produce merchants of Wilkes-

George at the Chase ranch, Since hia
laat visit here eight years ago he sees
great changes, the town having dropped on to the map in that time. Mr.
Chase expects to stay for a while and
hook some of those big trout he has
been reading about in the Tribune for
the last year.
C. P. R. Confident
Sir Thomas Shsughnessy konws more
about actual conditions in this country
than half the financial critics taken together. As president of the C. P. R.
he knows the real state of affairs whan
others theorise.
"Do you think that the present financial situation will shortly be relieved?"
Sir Thomas wss asked. "I do not think
thst the situation ia at all serious," he
replied, "and I believe that whatever
financial stringency exists will be short
lived. The scarcity of money is due
chiefly to the great progress and expansion which is going on. The demand
for the commodities is increasing at an
enormous rate. Canada's progress must
and will continue and the stringency
will pass with readjustment."
The C. P. R. have greater financial
interests in Canada than any other company has or is likely to have and yet
without the slightest hesitation they are
prepared this year to sink another trifle
of a hundred million dollars. Some of
the financial soreheads that are neglecting the present moment of investing
capital when splendid opportunities are
open will be much disappointed when
the opportunity passes. They are of
the type who declared that the C. P. R
would not pay for the axle grease.

it 60 feet in depth. He handles men's
furnishings, ladies' ready-to-wear clothing and boots and shoes, He is one of
the bright young business men of the

Turtle Valley Mill Closes Down
After Doing Good Season's
The Shuswap Lumber Company's
mill at Turtle Valley has completed ita
cut for the present season. The total
cut amounts to about a million feet,and
the lumber is of excellent quality.
It was last fall that the property at
Turtle IVailey was taken over by the
present owners and was placed under
the capable management of Fred A.
Estey, formerly of Nelson. Since then
it has exceeded all previous records,
cutting aa high as 25,000 feet per day
of ten hours.]
The mill has been manned almost entirely by settlers on the fertile surrounding lands. To them it is an important
source of income while they are getting
their homesteads into shape to produce
a living. It also furnishes a market
for any logs thev mav have to diapose
The First of a Projected System
Being Built To Adams
Victoria, B.C. July I5.-A trail IS
miles in length is to be constructed from
Stillwater Flataoverthe Divide to Adams
Rivar .It will connect tha North
Thompson and Adams River Valleys and
will give access to 600,000,000 feat of
timber. The cost will be undertaken by
the Forestry Department or the Provincial Government. This is the first departure of ita kind under the recent legislation which provided a tax of one and a
half cents per acre on all crown grant*
and timber licences, the money thus
raised to be used for forest fire protection purposes. The fund derived from
these sources will not be employed only
in the actual work of fighting forest
fires but will be also used for the building of trails to give eaay access to densely timbered tracts of country and will
be used as well for the installation of
telephone lines for the purpose of snmm-
moning aid to any point where a conflagration may break out. In connection with the first trail to be built under
this sytem it is interesting to note that
it will only cost $750 and that the entire
timber area to which it will give access
has not yet been alienated.
In Praise of
Forestry Department
Victoria, B.C. July 16,- A tribute to
the work of the Foreatpy Department
is contained in a communcation SirWill-
iam Schlich to Hon. W. R. Rosa. He asks
that publication dealing with this branch
of the service may be forwarded to him
in future and aB well points out that without the fire protetion service the ultimate
usefulness of the timber resources of
the province would be in vain. He
considers that considers that economic
lumbering will make British Columbia
one of the most Important sources of
supply of coniferous lumber in the whole
world. In commentng on this fact he
says that the supplies from Siberia are
more doubtful than are generally supposed.
Sir William Schlich is probably the
world's'greatest expert on Forestry.
Fifty yeara ago he went to England
from Germany. He waa chosen by the
Goverment to organise the Indian Forest Service, which up to date is unequalled.
He further haa organised the forestry
school st Oxford University for the
training of the men for the forest service throughout the British crown dependencies and was a member of tha
committee inquiring into British forestry
and continous scheme of reforestation.
He Is the author of several standard
works on forstry.

Certain branches of government are frequently referred to as spending departments. The Forestry Branch of the Provincial Government is
a department of thrift, Its work is one of saving. By its forest ranging
service it saves the Bottler's home, the country's timber, its water supply, and the nation's revenue.
The Forest Branch is manifestly not in the hands of men who
watch the clock. All its work bears the stampof enthusiam. Every
modern method of fighting and guarding against forest tires is being
applied, Telephone lines are being built and trails cleared through the
timber. Cabins at convenient points are stocked with supplies and
equipment. Thus if a fire bienks out every facility is furnished for
quickly locating it and calling in help.
This for-st protection work is done on the policy that money spent
iu keeping the trees growiug iB a premium paid on neceBsary insurance.
It is well known that in the east fires destroyed morj timber than ever
did the axe of the lumber. The same thing must not be allowed to
happen on the Pacific slope. Too much of our future prosperity is dependent on our forest wealth.

There is a movement on the part of some of the merchants of the
town to close tlieir stores at 6.30 on two evenings in the week. One
store has already adopted the policy and others are in favor of it if all
would agree to conform to the custom. The public should be glad to
concede this much to the merchants and their employes. The twelve

For the sake of the child the home wus built,
In tlie early forest lone and wild,
Patiently, humbly the woman wrought,
The tnitti went into the worltl und fought,
Negleclfnl of self, they labored, both,
Forgetting freedom and ease and sloth,
And all for the sake of a tender child.
To Bhelter the child the town wus made:
Tall were ita walls and steep and strong,
Its conquering hosts adventured far;
Its trailers followed the wake of war,
And, burdened with gold, returned again,
Thinking they served the needs of men,
But the child was their innstet nil along,
For the love of the child the workman toils
Beyond his.strength in tho street nnd strife;
The farmer delves in the stony Held,
Pressing the earth for n larger yield;
The miner moles in the cold, dark ground,
And nil, by tin* i.'oinuio.i Aim are bound���
To lift the child toward the happier life.
For the sake of the child is the world's work done;
l''nr the nMlcl . deur snke is it done so well.
We think we bear for ourselves, but, oh!
'Tis the child we serve; null we labor so
Thnt  the   child   may  laugh   where our  hearts
That he may be loved where we were scorned;
'1 hut hi* may rise where once we fell.

Education Is the most vital and far-
reaching of all the undertakings of
government, and so every person snd all
property is taxed for thst purpose.
The chief purpose iB to make citizens,
���useful to the State and to themselves.
Our whole educational system especially in the elementary and secondary grades
falls far short of its purpose and cost.
The country children suffer much the
most, for their schools are not as good
even as the town and city schools, snd
they should not be discriminated against.
Rarely do the country schools shape
their work so as to interest the children
in the great work of agriculture in
which their fathers are engaged.
Nothing is taught them helpfully in
this line, nor is their reading, arithmetic,
etc., expressed in terms that will aid
them in this or any practical direction.
The teachers are frequently incompetent, and inexperenced, - unable even to
interest the children, much less properly
instruct them, and the fault is largely
because not enough interest is shown or
salary paid to gyt a fir*4-class teacher.1'
Eighty-five per cent of all the country
boys and girls get all the schooling they
ever get under such conditions.
Farmers have been known to pay as
mbch to a hand or twice as much to a
good herdsman as to the school teacher,
���who may make or mar the whole future of their children.
Interest yourself in your children's
school, it is the most important thing
you can do.���Bulletin Illinois Bankers

J. H. Clement and H. Shotten of
Kamloops with their families are enjoying a couple of weeks cruising the

They spent Friday on the beach at Chase.
From here they went on up the lake and J
intended going as far as Seymour Arm.
The Knights of Pythias propose in the
near future giving a dance, fixing the
date on a Friday so that folks from up
the lake can come down by the Andover

What seems to hav* been overlooked
In discussing tbe development of tbs
aeroplane Is th. education of the aviator himself. At llrst man did not know
what could be don* with his new toy.
I remember distinctly, only so far back
as 1910 at Belmont park, the aviators
wonld look up at the flags over the
hangars and If tbey wen stirred try
more than a breath of wind they refused to take the air. Nowadays a
filer most be poor Indeed If be cannot
manage to handle his machine In a

flights have been made In winds having a velocity of a mil. a minute or
The remarkable advance of aviation,
therefore, Is really doe not so much to
the development of the aeroplane Itself,
either mechanically or aerodynamical-
ly, as to tbe perfection of the motor
and tbe education of the aviator. There

today could take one of tbe machine.
made ln 1808 and do "stunts" which
were not thought possible at tbe time
the machine was constructed.
Aviators hsve learned more about the
Invisible air currents and tbe possibilities of their machines and*nave become more and more daring as time
went on. Furthermore, as soon as
competition appeared and one aviator
was placed against another each one
was goaded on to take greater and
greater risks. This process developed
tbe exhibition bird man as yon see bim
today. He Is a flier who will nuvlgate
In any wind and will arise from and
slight upon almost any field.
And the remarkable part of It all
la tbat tbe accidents are so few In view
of the large number of men flying and
the enormoua distances covered. The
death roll Is so much discussed largely
because upon the addition of every new
martyr the newspapers republish the
entire list. If this were dune In tbe

How Adaman Islander. Protect Th.lr
Dead From Evil Spirits.
Strange Is tbe on rial service among
tbe Adaman Islanders. It is tbe custom of tbe islanders to drop tbe bodies
of tbelr parents Into tbe sea at tbe end
of ropes and leave them tbere until
nothing remains but tbe bones, which
tbey then gstber and bang from the
roofs or tbelr nuts.
It Is a common custom for a relative
to sit by tbe bour and watch tbe bones
of some relative. Tills Is the way they
have of showing their love aud respect.
The bodies are treated in tbis fashion so that the evil spirits cannot tease
and pincb tbem. All tbat Is left are
tba dried bones, and tbese are placed
high so tbat If the evil spirits wander
Into the huts tbey will bave a bard

'was a mere bnnntelle compared with

But there wns the lawyer, and there
was the document with red tape and

John believed that an attempt on his

; A Story of Monte  |
  i i
Peter Orloff was a young Russian
who Inherited an estate und !tO-,OUU
rubles. Into the possession ot which
he entered wben be wijs twenty-one
years old. He concluded before settling down on the caiule lo take 0,000
rabies and visit Rome, Berlin, Paris
and other continental cities. So as soou
aa he had arranged bla affaire tor hla
absence he started for Berlin, from
whence be went to Rome, tben Naples,
where he sailed tor Uenoa, and a abort
time after his arrival at that pott wu
tn the attractive winter resort, Nice.
Be bad left heblnd bim a fiancee,
eonla, tbe daughter of a neighbor, and
leog before tbe time set for his return
he felt inclined to go home. But hla betrothed waa spending some time In St
Petersburg, and it be went borne he
would find her absent. Be felt tbat it
would be better to remain away for the
appointed term, at tbe end of which
tbe wedding waa to take place. Therefore, Uring of Nice, be concluded to run
down to Monte Carlo.
On the evening of his arrival be
dined, tben sauntered over to tbe pavilion wbere gambling waa going on.
At that hour nut few persons were
playing, and there was little to Interest
him. He felt bored. He bad a mind to
go back to Russia. Be would find Sonla
at St. Petersburg aud might enjoy blm-
aelf tbere wltb ber far better than
���pending bis time alone in foreign
lands. Be came to u resolution to start
on hts return trip the next morning.
This would give btm but one evening
to get away with.
He asked one of the croupiers at the
gambling table at wbat hour tbe play
would be In full swing and was told It
would nut be for soother hour. To
pass the interval .ft concluded to bet a
few fmncs. He covered several of the
numbers nnd won on two and lost on
one. Ue repented the bets nnd again
won more than be lost. When be had
gullied on bis third bet he began to be
: At 10 o'clock be hod quite a pile of
winnings before hliu. He looked up
flam it to the faces about bim and saw
that while he had been playing the
throng had been gathering. So Intent
bad he been on the game that he bad
noi noticed their coming. He counted
his winnings and found enough to pay
bis expenaes to St. l'etersburg and keep
him there till it would be time to return to bla borne and the wedding.
Then It occurred to him that It wonld
be nice to win enough more to buy a
present to take with him for Sonla.
Be would go by way of Paris and
doubtless see many pretty things there
from which be might select something
to please bis betrothed He laid 10
franca on tbe table and won. Then, he
lost. After that be won quite a good
deal, wben be struck bad luck and lost
nearly every bet he made. At 2 o'clock
In the morning he had lost all the
ready money be had with him.
Th* next morning Instead of starting
for bom* he drew 1.000 franc* on hi*
letter of credit and went to tb* gam*
Wing pavilion to recoup. He played
ill day and when evening came had
won back his losses to within 20 franc*.
Then another streak of bad luck struck
him, and by midnight be had loat tha
l.OOO franca h* had drawn ln tb* morning
Within a few daya Orloff had sunk
what remained of the 5,000 rubles he
had put aside for bla journey and had
drawn on nls funds at home for 100,000
more. With this acquisition be won
and lost considerable, for he played
high. Week after week passed while
be waa seen constantly at the gaming
Meanwhile tbe time for bla return
anil bis wedding came round, and be
did not appear to claim bis brtde. He
wrote ber tbat he would be unavoidably detained. Not having the heart to
ghe the real reason, he said that be

' On* night Orion staggered Into the

At thl* juncture a lady appeared at

A gentleman wbo had been watching

Meanwhile the girl, who had tainted,

Orloff was carried from the pavilion,

Hew to Tell the Different Cuts When.
You Are Marketing.
In considering bow to buy uieat. say*
Lily Haiworth Wallace, lecturer oa
domeetle silence, we must look at tba
relative eost aa compared witb tba
nutriment to be gained from the differ*
���nt cuts, no less than at the qualities
wbicb go to make good meat. Th*
most expensive portlo-a ot tbe animal
are not necessarily tbe best, for great**
nutriment can often be obtained from
a cheaper cut. provided proper car*
and tliu* are allowed for tb* cooking
Much unnecessary expense la incurred ln housekeeping because of tb*
fact tbat meals are not planned sufficiently ln advanco to allow of tbe ua*
of cheaper cuts of meat, which, la
���rder to be palatable, must be cooked
long and slowly.
Th* meat of young animals la mora
tender but at tha same time leaa nut*
turns than that from animals ot mature growth.
Beef and mutton, tha atandard meats,
an alwaya In season: lamb la at Ita
best ln the summer and fall; veal la
tbe spring and early summer, while
pork, If eateo at all. should be served
only ln the colder months.
The best beef Is tbe flesh ot a steer
about four years old. It should b*
bright red In color, firm and marbled In
appearance from tbe proper blending
of fat and leau. which shows even
feeding and "that tbe animal has uot
been rapidly fattened for killing. There
should also be a fair proportion ot
creamy white tot next tho surface.
Lamb and mutton hove a larger proportion ot fat than beefc and the fat la
firmer. The flesb of good mutton ll
fine groined and of a bright color. The
sarong mutton flavor so often io' 'be
detected In this meat can be virtually
eliminated by the careful removal of
the pink skin above the fat on the
outer surface of tbe meat It ls bere
that the little oil cells whlcb bold this
flavor ubound.
Lamb ls smaller and lighter ln colot
than mutton. One distinguishing test
between the two is that ln lamb, wben
the bone is broken, as In tbe case oi
a leg or chops. It will be found red
and rough, while aa the animal grows
older tbe blood recedes from the bones,
leaving them white and smooth.
Neat Hems.
It is often difficult to make a neal
looking hem on a skirt or coat mad*
ot very thick clotb, for unless tt can
be pressed very flat with a heavy Iron,
aad sometimes even then, there will
be an unsightly bump or bulge at tha
point where the material Is turned In
at the top of the hem and stitched,
A good plan to follow when using
thick material for a garment Is to turn
np the hem perfectly flat without turning ln the top edge in the usual way;
then baste a piece ot tape the color of
th* material, or If the color cannot be
matched as* black on dark material
and white on light material over the
faw edge of the hem and atltch it in
place on both th* upper and lower
By basting the tap* In place the
stitching can ba done on tbe right side
of the material, using the bsstlng
thread as s guide.
In case of a wide hem where the material bas to be laid ln Ilttle plaits at
the top It can be made to He flat by
slashing tbe hem down from the lop
for an Inch, then lapping the material
over, thus making only two thicknesses
of material Instead of three, as would
be the case with a plait
Silk seam binding can be used Instead of tape If you desire, but tbat
does not wear so well ss tape aud will
have to be replaced wben worn
