When the sleel ball was Ilrst used lu
the bearings of bicycles It was a very
Imperfect sphere. It wns nut culled
upon to bene tiny great luad, nud tlio
velocity wns nut great. At Ihe best
(he luad on It was not more than SKI
pounds, and at Ibo rate uf sixty miles
au hour the revolutions were uot mure
than 720 per minute. Compare tbat
with thc loud and velocity of tbe in.idem ball bearings of automobiles. Frequently tbe load approximates a thousand pounds and the velocity is anywhere from S00 to 1,200 revolutions.
Tho small steel balls must take the
maximum load of tbe car and pass It
on to others without binding or catching. A Blight Imperfection in any one
ball would causo trouble. In fact, ll
Is impossible to use balls with nny appreciable vnrlntion In slzo from one
another, and the more nearly round
they are lho better the results.
Steel balls are not only made more
perfect In shape than ever before, hut
Ihey nre harder and tougher. As
there la a tendency to flake, only special steels can bo used hi their manufacture, and these tough, hard steels
are nil the more difficult to work with
j to secure perfect roundness. Tbo
I chrome steel, of which most balls for
j bearings are made. Is one of tbe most
] difficult of steels to cut or shape, nnd
I tho work of bundling It bus developed
; special tools und machines made of
' even harder material.
| While we hare not yet made the
perfectly spherical steel bull and perhaps may never succeed, tbe point of
perfection reached Is little short of
wonderful. The approximately perfect steel ball Is a matter of vital importune* wherever machines and machinery are made and used. The application of tho ball bearing system
is extended to new lines of Industrial
use each year, snd builders of sll
kinds of apparatus ere taking advantage of th* perfection reached by the
manufacturers of these little spheres

S,dt-Lakes  tn  Britain.
The  existence  ol   salt  lakes   and
deserts in Britain in pre.glacial times
was stated by W. W. Watts, professor
of geology to the Imperial College of
(Science, ut the Royal Institution, to
the shown by the peculiar geoloa-ical
features of Charnwood Forest, Leicestershire.   It waa by far   the   oldest
landscape known in Britain.   To-duy
where thu marl had been swept away
by denuding agents   the rocks   pro-
'truded in peaks, and in some cases
the locks   were   harder   than   steel.
The resemblance  ol  the  scenery   to
deserts in Arabia, he   said, went  to
show that in   thc pr*-glacial   period
there   must   have   been   deserts   in
Britain occupied hy suit s-aa.   As a
I further   proof   ol   tho   existence   of
I desert, ages   ago,   he   'ndicated   by
i means ol slides the smoothness of n
!j number of tho rock,   in Charnwood
1 Forest.   Their polish, he said, could
only  havo   been    produced   by    the
action   of   the   wind   drifting   sand
against them.    From vastly  ancient
days   thc   marl   had   preserved   the

"1 came across a few weeks ago one

traveling extensively in Ireland.
"Driving through lovely parlt-like.

came to an old country man.ion. with

about th* place busy, happy girls hurrying to and fro, chattering or tinging.
Hare it the explanation.
The Department of Agriculture and,
Technical Instruction for Ireland,
(known not by this cumbrous title,
/out as the Department.) bought thi,
country mansion and turned it Into a
training college fer women, training
them not only in domestic economy;
but ln several branches of farm

iifo, but in some teachers are trained,
p otheri servants, and one et all

lo thou who have passed tho usual
school or college examinations successfully. The astonishing thing ii
the lowness uf the fees. They vary
•lightly, but as a rule excellent board,'
lodging and instruction aro given for
a little more than fib the session,
which lasts sbout ten weeks, three
sessions making the college year. The
length of training varies, nut only ac
cording to the pupils abilities, bu'.
.according to her future career. Some
of the colleges admit day pupils free,
others make a small charge; in some-
gardening is taught, in addition to the
other subject;,, and in all, though
utilitarian instruction necessarily
holds thc chief place, the literary side
is not lost sight of, and no effort is
spared to keep high Ideals Ih view.

For this purpose lt Is wise to use
a length of malleable iron gas-pipe,
because ii is easily bent into the re-
HUlred coil. This is done by taking
a lug or fence-post about'the size of

it.    This method  prevents  the pipe

In ve:y cold weather, the cement
may be heated by laying the bags on
top of the sand, but this is not abso*
lutely nr-cesaary, as the cement liselt
must be kept dry until used, whether
the weather be hot or cold.
Materials should not be heated to
too high a temperature. A good way
to judge the proper amount of heat
is to make them Just hot enough tc

The Sun Rise group, two miles
southwest from Laidlaw, was; located
within the last three weeks by Archie
Cooper and Harry Sergeant, of
Hope, for themselves and associates.
A numlier of samples from the ledge
were sent to J. O'Sttllivnn, of Vancouver, for assay. The return wns
received yesterday, showing 3.35
ounces in gold, or 167, to thc ton,
besides small values in silver. The
group consists of four claims traversed by a ledge varying in width
from two to nine feet. Thc group
is not at a great elevation, is easily
accessible, and is less than two miles
from the 0. N. K. station site nt
Ltldlaw, Meanwhile negotiations
are in progress in connection with
ninny other groups, on Silver Crock,
the CiH|tiihiilla, -.'3-Mile Mid Ited
Mountain. Inconnection with these
the snowfall does not matter, because
all were thoroughly OXftniinod by,
or on behalf of, the prospective purchasers while the ground was still
bare. Whether any deals go through
or not, thoro will 1st plenty of mining activity in the Spring. If outside capital is not. attracted at the
outset it will come later, and pay
more for the privilege. There are
parties still out at Ited Mountain,
but thc heavy snowfall will probably
force them to abandon the field.—

While the subject of forest conservation is so largely interesting the
public at the present time some recent remarks of Mr. J. B. White,
who ia secretary of the National
Conservation Congress of the United
Suites, will lie read with attention.
Mr. White has just completed a tour
of the Eastern State* and on his return to San Francisco in discussing
the conservation idea he said: "A
supeaior quality of artificial lumber
t can be manufactured cheaper than
natural lumber can be grown, taking
•'>" per cent, waste paper, 22 per
cent, straw, 5 per cent, jute and 10
per cent, wood fibre, a ton of fibre
board, one-quarter inch thick, or
1,100 foot of Inch lumber can be
produced." While wo cannot regard
this ns affording any excuse for thc
neglect of Umbel'Conservation, it is
worth knowing tlmt a reliable substitute for lumber and I* so cheaply
manufactured. How large an industry may be built up in Ihe near
future for the supply of building
material it is not easy to predict.
At any rate it is comforting to know
that ful ure generations will not. be required to go houseless us long As there
are roots, stumps, jute and straw
left for material transformation.
For the benefit of Hportmen of this
section it can lie stated that the trout

Municipality situated in the Yale
Electoral district until the Inst dny
of December, this year. Puck,
sni]Mt and geese may lie shot until
thc last dny of February next.
Coast deer may lie. shot until Dec.
and season for shooting cock pheasants ends on thc same day . Ducks,
snipe and geese iliny be sold on the
mainland until Nov. 30,but the time
for selling deer expired on Nov. 10.

Consider the location of SARDIS.  IT IS
actually the geographical centre for the
Chilliwack Valley.   Being 50 feet above
the Fraser fiver, it has great advantages
from a residential standpoint. The natural drainage is perfect. Basements are dry
Septic Tanks thoroughly workable.    A
Five Cent car fare puts you into the city
in Five minutes. There are Stores P.O. and
Bank accomodation now.    Being in the
rural municipality, the taxes are merely
nominal.   Taxes, drainage, elevation are
big items to be considered in choosing a
site for a permanent home.    Location is
also a big factor.    You'cannotjjhitch up
a horse and drive aTmile or two for"! five
cents.   You can get from Sardis to Chilliwack for 5 cents. The lots are absolutely cleared, level and under cultivation,
and are within a stone's throw of Sardis
station and Edenbank store.   The Royal
Bank of Canada is going to build   on
the property, showing   faith   in   the
location  and   future of the townsite.

this season are lietter than ever

The Oven
In malting cakes the first thing to
attend to U the oven. Iu order to wee
that this Is at the proppi heat a piece
i.f white paper should be put lnio the
oven, and it ii remains wlilce or becomes only slightly tinged, It is too
cool; If i (becomes a pretty shade of
pale brown the heat is alitglil. aud.
cool; if It becomes a pretty shade of
brown it is uk1- hot.   if a coal stove
[bb used, cf.rc mutt to token that all
1So soot which collects above the oven
,is removed, ds soot prevents the (lame
from getting l'> the oven.   If a gu?
j stove be used ti ahould be least
'fifteen minutes beore the cake is put
in.   Small cakes require the hottest
• oven, so us   to    be    quickly    baked
.through. Ou the other hand, large
trait cakes do not require stroll a quick
even, **s if tl"' heat la tod fierce Uie
cakes get  hardened ou  the    outside
.IciiR before thoy are cooked through.
The process, therefore, Kuoitld be
more gradual. aHhough the oven .that
