Work of the Inventors
Manufacturers are almost daily in
receipt, ol' communications from inventors inclosing patent, specifications covering uu invention aimed to
improve iiin product. It is a mistake
on the part, cf manufacturers to view
such inventors as iinposltors. Tlie position that ''an outside cannot know
more about our own business than
ourselves" is a fallacy that has no
place in modern industrial management, ll' it were necessary to prove
that such a position is a fallacy thousands of Inventions could be cited

The new location for the line will

enterprise Is officially known as the
lingers' Pass tunnelling scheme, and
Ih. work and related Improvements
will Involve the expenditure of more
than $10,000,1)00. The tunnel wljl

In America. The Hoouac tunnel on
Ibe New York Central Hue is the
longest at present, being just tour

Since the Canadian Pacific railway

The contractors, who have in hand
the tunnel scheme are applying au
entirely now method in tunnel piercing, they are projecting what ls
known as a "pioneer bore." This Is
a small preliminary shaft, seven feet
by nine, which will parallel the
course of the maiu tunnel fifty feet
distant aud will bo bored from. both
ends at the same time. The idea is
Unite ln the nature of an experiment
and was decided upon only after careful calculation and mature consideration.
One of tho principal reasons for
the adoption of the new plan was the
fact that the Canadian Pacific wished to have the big- undertaking finished by December 31, 1910, threo years
and a half from the time the work
was started. Building a passage five
miles long is a lengthy process iu the
ordinary way. Only a limited number of men can work in the heading
at one time and delays constantly occur on account ot blasting and other
With the 'pioneer" bore the work
will bo greatly facilitated. Side shafts
will be excavated leading inlo the
course of the main tunnel and drillers will thus be enabled to'attack a
number of points at once. While
blasting is proceeding in one part ot
tho shaft the workers will be nble
to continue their activities in another.
Instead of having to cease work each
time a shot In fired as would be the
case Willi the one headings The same
applies to the excavation part of the
work. Lines of cars loaded with material can be kept continually in motion from the various drifts which
would not b6 iwssible were the operations concentrated all at one part.
Another great advantage is the fact
lhat the "pioneer" bore will act as a
ventilating shaft, enabling the pas-
sago of a urrcnt of air through two
bores and the connecting passages. It
will also serve a permanent purpose
In the same connection on the completion of the main tunnel.
Th.c tunnel operations havo a decidedly human interest side. With perspiration dripping from their lightly
clad bodies, the drill men may be
seen calmly proceeding with their allotted tasks, paying little heed to the
significance of their work.
The work is pursued In much the
same way as in the levels of a hiine.
Stopes are driven and holes are
bored with air drills, charges set and
exploded and the shattered material
placed on cars and run out along narrow gauge tram lines. Eletcric fans
keep a current of air In circulation
removing the dust from the drills and
clearing the atmosphere of the poisonous gases from blasting.

Writes on the Americanization
of Canada
The Toronto correspondent i>r the

of a column and a half iu length, <ii
titled "The Americanization of fan

correspondent asks: "Do the Ilritish
people uni.erstand ami reflect upon
imperial problems in their complexity to Canada?" It seems lo bo the
fashion, he Bays, in Great Britain to
regard Canada us bound to the motherland by historic, tradition, by long
association, by common Interest a"d
continent. Probably these elements
are inspired hy Canadian patriotism,

Tlm correspondent in support ot his
argument lhat there Is a movement
in Americanize Canada, draws attention lo newspaper service which relegates British news to thu background lu favor of Hems from America, thereby proving lhat he Is dealing wllh a newspaper condition In
Canada of ten years ago und not of
lodny, because every Canadian newspaper Is now giving more attention
to Ilritish news, for lis news value,

Ihe committee which administers the
new tuberculosis (animals) act, reported with regard to tlio statistics
that were to hand on their invstlga-
tions up to the end of September last
to the effect that out of 8,162 cows
that were tested only 220 samples of
milk were found to be tuberculous.
After the way the, public had been
cautioned by scientific men against
drinking milk which might be affected, and generally frightening them, it
waB tho duty of tbe association to
disillusion their minds, as it was not
very terribla.after aU taking into consideration the. (act that it had not j et
been proved thit the milk from a cow
with a tuberculous udder could transmit the disease1 to human beings, lie
considered the public bad been
frightened unnecessarily. The cost
of administration and compensations
paid amounted to _ 11,998, of which
only ��3,246 was for compensation
when the animals had been slaughtered, which was a very inadequate
amount to compensate the farmers
according to the scale fixed by the
board of agriculture.
General Otter on Unpreparedness cf
Canada for War
Replying to the toast of the "Canadian Militia," at the ltoyal Grenadiers sergeants annual dinner at Toronto, Major General Sir Wm. Otter
made some strong statements in regard to the unprepared state of Canada in case of external danger."
"I look for danger from without,"
said General Otter, "and sooner or
latter that danger will come. As wes
stand at present we are totally unprepared. We are lacking in numbers
and we are lacking in material and if
preparation ls not made and continued in a definite manner we shall
some day or other be caught, and we
shall Iobc our Identity as a nation."
Making Coal Hard
Experiments by the government of
Saskatchewan in the carbonizing of
the soft coal which abounds In the
district are being conducted at the
town of Bsievan. According to H.
Anderson Cameron, commissioner for
the Esteve.i board of trade, the results of the test are proving highly
satisfactory and it is expected that In
a short time the carbonized coal will
be placed on the market. It is expected that It will sell for about $5 a
ton. By tho carbonizing process the
coal Is made much harder than it is
iu the original state and its valuo for
fuel purposes is brought, it ls said, to
the standard of Pennsylvania hard
coal. Briquettes will also be manufactured under the new process.���

Ion���Describes Blonde Eskimos.
"When Stetansson, the Arctic explorer, declared he 'prefers the Eskimo who has not been spoiled by
Civilization,' he made a Statement regarding tho 'spoiling' which is not
supported by facts," mild Archdeacon
Whittaker, who, with a party of nine,
left Edmonton on May I for Ibe Anglican mission fields of the far north.

"Lot me show what has been accomplished," he continued. "When we
began mission work among the natives ot the Arctic Circle country, under Bishop StrlUR(r, the Ksklmo was
terribly degraded. Polygamy, inl'antl-
clilc, theft, murder and all kinds of
things were too common. Immorality
was such that it cannot be mentioned.
The Eskimos were made even worse

who carried on an Illicit liquor traffic

Eskimos have taken readily to religious teachings, ;.nd three-fifths of the

"Stefausson's accounts of tho Eskimos are most reliable where thn explorer's observations are concerned.
but when It comes to a matter of
judgment he is something ut fault."
Tlie Eskimos, according to the
archdeacon, are well supplied with
boats, some of them have craft capable of carrying loads of four or five
tons. Most of them are now making
a living by catching fur, and It Is not
au unusual thing for au Eskimo tj
make as much as $1,500 by this
means during tbe season. Few of
them understand English. Thn prevailing language is an Eskimo jargon
which the whalers loarn rapidly.
Asked as to the future of the vast
hinterland beyond the 60th parallel
of latitude, Archdeacon Whittaker
said there have been so many wonderful changes In the west during the
last 20 years that he would not venture even a gueB3 as to what is likely to take place in the next few
"But." he added, "I do not think
there is a future for the extreme
north, except as a fur-bcarlng region.
If the animals are conserved, so much
tbe better. There In little restriction
on the catching of fur at present.
The Eskimos are better In this respect than the Indians. We got tho
Eskimo to see the benefit of avoiding
early trapping, and he will not set ills
traps'until after November 1, when
tho fur is good and fetches top prices.
On the other hand, lhe Indian, as
soon as he sees a mink or fox, will
set his trap and kill, no matt _ what
the time of year."
Archdeacon Whittaker told of the
efforts ot W. Henry Fry, one of his
missionaries, to reach the people popularly known as the "Blonde Eskimos," who live a thousand miles
east of llerschell Island iu what ls
known .as Victoria Land. Mr. Fry
and a party of nine covered 600 miles,
but had to turn back on account of
Ice and lack of provisions.. The Archdeacon' says Uie Eskimos are not
really blonde, whieli is a newspaper
nppellation, although some of them
undoubtedly have a strain of white
blood In their veins, and, if dressed
in European clothes, might be taken
for Englishmen.
Archdeacon Whittaker began his
labors among the Eskimos in 1895.
Ills wife, a sister of the wife of
Bishop Lucas, followed him three
years later. He was stationed at
Fort McPherson for five years, then
at Herscliell Island for five years, and
then again at Fort McPherson for another five years, with furloughs Intervening.    He was  accompanied  to
s far-off post by Mri'. Whittaker.

Rubber    Plantations,    of  Disgraceful
Fame, Are Likely to be Placed
on Market
Because of the ?rcat cost that is
now involved In its niantenunce, tho
Congo Free State, the rubber plantations of which euricbed and disgraced King Leopold of Belgium, is to be
sold by the Belgium government, according to private advices that have
reached Paris.
It Is regarded as certain that
France will take advantage ot the
right of priority, given her in the recent agreement made with Great
Britain and Germany, and will add
the African territory to Its colonial
possessions by becoming tlie purchaser. The Information as to the decision of the Belgian government, is believed to-be an Intlmaton to France
to buy. The atrocities perpetrated
on the natives to compel them to collect the rubber to provide King Leopold with th3 fabulous wealth he
wasted upon ballet dancers, formed a
scandal tbat stirred the entire civilized world a few years ago.

The Horseshoe
it Is nut particularly difficult to
guess why lovers of horses euine to
adopt the horseshoe us a talisman
against misfortune. Horses were held
to he especially susceptible to the
machinations of witches. If precautions were not taken these mischievous creatures would ride I lie horses
at dead of night over the bills, and
when the owner came to the stables
lu the mornii.g le would Iind his animal- In a lather and utterly exhausted, A horseshoe placed over the
stable doer was believed to ward off
such evil.
There ls no superstition mo:e deeply ingrained In all elassi a of society
than that '.vhlcb per'.alns lo the horse
shoe. As an emblem or good fortune
It holds .u'lde of plac >, Nelson did
not disdain to nail a horseshoo to ihe
mast of the Victory, ln. the early
part of the nineteenth century the
horseshoe was highly prized, and
there weie few mansions where it
was not displayed, while humbler
folks were at greal pains to fasten it
over tlieir doors.
In Greece and Hume horses were
not shod. The ancients were content with wrapping flier cloth round-
the feet of their horses in cold weather, or when ll '.vas necessary to pass
through miry districts. Instead of devising horseshoes, they turned their
attention to' hardening the hoofs of
their ln.Mints. Nero, however, who
ever strode ..to outdistance his contemporaries, caused his horses to he
shod with silver, but no nails were
driven with silver, but no nails wera
shoeing horses by driving nails into
tho hoofs was introduced into England by William the Conqueror, bnt
for centuries the practice did not gain
much headway.
The Indians, who had no superiors
ns horsemen, never thought of shoeing their mounts in any way, and yet
they were capable of performing remarkable journeys over the most Jlf-
ficult country Even at. tbe present
day in Japan the modern horseshoe
finds a strong competitor in the old-
fashioned candalc made of straw,
which are fastened lo the horses'
hoofs, very.much as they might b'e
to a man's feet.
Do  Light  Rays  Develop  Germs?
Dr. Houx, director of the Pasteur
Institute in Paris, read the other
day, at the Academie des Sciences, a
note by Mine. Victor Henri who, with
her husband, specializes in the study
of ultra violet rays, describing the
effect of existing microbes to the
A prolonged and carefully regulated exposure to the ultrr. violet rays
of anthrax microbes resulted in tlie
death of some of the microbes, butj
others survived, and were complete- i
ly transformed in regard to shape, becoming round iiiBtead of long, and
when an r.nlmal was inoccnlated the
transformed microbes caused an illness of an entirely different uatur_
from normal antlirax, being of a
toxic character, but not aepticaemic.
Dr. Houx concluded that these experiments lead one to ask if different microbes have not been evolved from a limited number of primitive forms under the action of light.
This would contradict tlie common
Idea that noxious germs are to be

Development of the Canadun We-t
���"Pioneering de Luxe."
Frederick Foster, member of Ohio
Historical and Archaeological Society
ami National Geographic Sootety,
says, lu a recent Issue of tin American  magazine:
"When I first began going Into the
Canadian west on tours of investigation, I often welcomed the slmpliest
diversion which might break the monotony of the prairie or the stillness of
the forest, A moose crashing through
tho trees, the honking of a water
fowl, even the scurrying of a gopher
through the grass have all beon sweet
entertainment. But It Is different
now; oid joe Boyd, up al Qtscombs
Portage In British Columbia, expressed the present conditions In thia
fashion. 'I have Just got to hunt new
trappln' grounds; the settlers are
coming in hero so fast even muskrat
Is gotten to be a stranger.'"
The trek of Western Canada began
In earnest nbout a dozen years ago

then one existing railway, hut coincident with tho building of two more
transcontinental railways, the Immigration Increased until it has now
reached the enormous total of virtu-
all;,' half million persons a year, largely from Great. Britain and the I'uited
States, not. to mention the vast movement from Eastern Canada to the
west. The lure, or properly speukini?
lures, are Identical to those which
peopled our own prairies First, land;
second, mercantile opportunities ate*
ated by the cultivation ot the land.
The difference In the development of
our middle west and the development
of Western Canada lies largely in the
difference of time, and for tills tn'i-
son it Is but natural that Western
Canada's development \: relatively
faster. The opportunities there at
present are precisely the same as the
iipporlunities which existed in Central Dulled States thirty 0r forty
years ago, but tho means of converting these opportunities into money
are infinitely better as may be realized when one pauses to consider __
vast improvements which have been
made. in transportation facilities,
farm equipment ai.d business appliances during that period.
There Ib no pioneering in Western
Canada as our fathers and grandfathers understood the word; Instead its
pioneering de luxe; pioneering via
transcontinental trains versus ox
carts; tungsten lights versui candles;
steam ploughs versus the hoe; merchandising versus trading.

The dumping of refuse in the
river here, while apparently contrary to the statutes, creates no
menace to public health if put into
running water, but when sewerage
and other refuse is run unto thrive! banks and left for the tide to
wash off, it is most offensive and
should not be allowed for one
moment. Then again the judicious
use of an axe for a few minutes
would alleviate the slaughter house

river as a means to get rid of waste

Our Governor-General Elect
His Serene Highness Prince
Alexander of Teck, who has been
appointed to succeed the Duke of
Conuaught as Governor-General of
the Dominion, is one of the most
democratic of princes. Born in
1874, he is the third son of tlie late
Duke of Teck and the late Princess
Mary Adelaide, thus being the
youngest brother of Her Majesty,
the Queen,
Prince Alexander is in the first
place a soldier, and not by any
means a drawing room soldier. He
is a major in the 2nd Life Guards,
and served in the Matabele cam-
jiiigii of 1896, when he was mentioned in dispatches, and in the
Boer War, when h. gained the
D. S. O.
Since the death of his brother,
Prince Francis of Teck, in rgio,
Prince Alexander and his wife have
been carrying on the work of
placingth. Middlesex Hospital, one
of London's bus'est hospitals, on a
sound financial basis. The Princess
Alexander, who was the Princess
Alice of Albany, is also much devoted to hospital work, and has
assisted her husband in his splendid
Prince Alexander is essentially a
man's man. He possesses a firm
will, and is well fitted to follow in
the footsteps of His Excellency,
the    Duke    of    Conniiught,    and
Canada's other Governor-Generals.
Despite the somewhat childish note
of opposition which was pounded
by some of tliu Eastern political
and newspapers, Prince Alexander
will soon win his way into the
hearts of the citizens of the Dominion. He is a worker and if he
had not beeu born to such a high
estate, would have tuatle his mark

Rt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain
Died last Thursday Night
at his London Residence
Rt. Hon. Joseph Chamberlaiu
died at London last Thursday
night, His death, which remove-
one of the most striking figures of
British politics in the past generation, came us a surprise, as the
condition of his health was not
publicly known to be nny worse
than at any time in the last two or
three years.
Mrs Chamberlain, who never
left her husband's side since he
was stricken with paralysis seven
years ago, and his son, Austin
Chamberlain, were with Mr, Chamberlain when death occurred at
10.30 o'clock at his London residence. The event cast a gloom

Mr, Chamberlain's last public
appearance was at a garden party
on the grounds of his Birmingham
home on May 6 last, when, with
his wife and son he received several
hundred constituents, Mr. Chamberlaiu was wheeled out ou the
lawn in a chair aud appeared feeble
when he lifted his hat to his triends
and neighbors iu acknowLdgmetit
of their salute3.
The cause of Mr. Chamberlain's
death was announced as heart
failure. Although he had beeu
gradually sinking since Tuesday,
members of the family had preferred
that his condition should not become publicly known.
The Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain was the pioneer in Great
Britain of tariff reform, and the
great advocate of imperialism.
_ or thirty-eight years, with a brief
intermi sion, he represented Birmingham in parliament. In 1906
his career ot stormy activities Was
ended by a stroke of paralysis.
The blow fell when lie was in the
midst of a strenuous campaign for
the establishment of a protective
tariff with preference for the British
colonies, and just after his con-
stituents had celebrated the thirtieth
anniversary of his election.

enough to llll a quart of solid worm,
and when put in a bucket, of water
would apparently llll it. It ls the
hardest task ln the world to destroy
this parasite without doing injury t
tho Individual who may bo s unfortunate as to have it, as the parasite
clings to tho bowels, freeing Itself
fiom the body of tho worm, and remains there to breed another. It Is
an Internal demon, and causes Its victim to suffer all the symptoms of dls-

of tlio bowels, consumption of the
lungs, chronic dyspepsia, nervous prostration, melancholia hypochondria, hysteria, Inflammation of bowels, appendicitis, and other complaints, when one
or moro of these internal demons were
cttting their lives away.
Prof. Mulveney has made the dls
covery to free the victim of this mens'
ter, without injury to tho system, destroying the parasite as well as expelling tlie worm with one dose of medicine without any previous starvation.
Visit his ofllco, where ho has in his
possession the most wonderful collection of these death-dealing monsters in
the world, which have been expelled
from hundreds of people by bis famous
remedy, some bottles containing colonies of worms, and anyone seeing them
cannot imagine how a person could
possibly live with them In his bowels.
It Is surprising the number of people
that have them. Thousands have
them and are not aware of the fact.
Tlie letters and testimonial! the Professor has in his possession are
enough to convince us of f..is alarming
fact. Some of the most prominent
symptoms are ravenous appetite, dizzy
spells, headaches, cramps 1_ tho bowels, a feeling of something moving in
tho bowels, also a feeling as though
something was crawling up the throat.
The only certainty of having one In
tho system is when segments or joints
are seen, which come away almoBt
any time. They are flat, and from
three-quarters of an Inch to an Inch
long, which have often been mistaken
for pin worms by those who do not
know the difference. There are many
other feelings of distress, wh'.ch would
take too long to enumerate. Strange to

About one hundred residents of
the Valley journeyed to Powell
River on Dominion Day, where a
grand celebration had been arranged. The day was delightfully hot,
old Sol doing his utmost to wurm
up the sandy hill side on wlii-li
Powell River is built--and succeeded .
All day long there was something doing.
In the forenoon there were boat
races on the lake above the dam,
In the afternoon tlie usual Sporting
eveuts including baseball aud water
sports on tbe bay in front of the
Pulp Mill. One of the events not
scheduled for the amusement of the
guests was the arrest of an Indian,
who had transgressed the liquor
act some months ago, and who had
cone into town to see the "doings."
He was spotted by the police and
it took two of them to secure him
and march him off to the lock up.
Several other inixups were started,
but were quickly suppressed.
The town is very prettily situated
on the hill side, the site being
owned by the Company who have
erected very pretty bungalows for
their officers aud employees. By
the courtesy ' of one of the officials
we were shown all through the
immense paper mills, From where
the logs leave the water, and are

machinery can be imagined when
it is remembered that the Company
have expended  about  six million

dollars, and can turn out about 250
tons of paper per day.
The dance in the evening in the
Company's hall was uot the least
of the days enjoyments, a bevv of
prettily dressed ladies and tlieir
ecorts tripped the light fantastic
to the strains of au excellent
O'diestra, until 2 o'clock the next

Electric Light in Egypt
Egypt promises soon to follow tho
lead of moro advanced countries in
great schemes of electric power development. As a result of the building of the Assouan dam on the Nile,
lhe primary object of which wa3 to
conserve water for irrigation purposes, the development of 5,000 horse
power in the form of electrical energy has been made possible. Different
purposes to which this power can he
applied aro being considered. On.e
horse power will manufacture
two tons.of calcium cyanamido in one
year, and thus the Assouan power
could turn out 100,000 tons per annum���that is to say, ��900,000 worth
of the fertilizing agent most extensively required in Egypt. Another
use the power could lie put to, as
shown by Sir William Willcocks' recent work, io summer irrigation, on
an even more extensive scale than at
present provided for. It is also proposed to utilize the power in tlie
weaving of silk.

Mrs. Captain Clinansmith, of the Salvation
Army, formerly of Essex, and now living at
Leamington, Ont., writes:���"I have used in
all about 18 boxes of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
and this treatment certainly worked like
magic. I was so run down that I suffered for
12 months with acute nervous prostration,
and was so bad that I never knew what sleep
or rest was.
"I consulted five different doctors, but still
I did not make any signs of recovery. A
friend of mine had suffered as I did and had
been cured by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food and
recommended it to me.
"I can say that after taking the first box I
felt every dose doing me good, and by continuance of this medicine I was cured. I
could sleep as well as ever and  found life
worth living. When other medicines failed,
the nerve food built me right up.
"A few years ago 1 was cured of a most
severe case of protruding piles by using Dr.
Chase's Ointment. I had to keep to my bed
and doctors could give me no help. When
Buffering untold agony I heard of Dr. Chase's
Ointment and was cured of piles, to the
wonder of those around me, and after I had
almost given up hope."
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has made a wonderful record as a cure for nervous exhaustion and
prostration. By forming new, rich blood it
restores feeble, wasted nerve cells, and, working hand in hand with nature, its cures are
thorough and lasting. 50 cents a box, 6 for

be built on the site offered by Mr.

and will no doudt lead to the work
being started very shortly.

About 3 o'clock on Saturday

plant burned down. The building
which is situated some distance

engine, electric light dynamo switch
board and about 50 gallons of coal
oil. No reason can be assigned for
the conflagation unless a box which
was standing near the exhaust pipe
caught a spark, and was slowly
fanned into a blaze, as the power
had not been used for several hours.
The loss is estimated at about
$1200, with no insurance.
