conditions there none will be found. I
It Is a crying shame thut in a young
country with such great natural resources awaiting development the public should be induced to throw away
their money on worthless concerns,
when some real benefit would be derived by the community from the expenditure on legitimate promotions of
capital whicli is now worse than wasted. The newspaper press bas great
responsibilities, and It is regrettable
that It should so often be perverted to
Improper purposes. In Victoria tho
Dally Colonist announced tliat It would
not accept mining ur oil news. Such
news Is as legitimate as any other.
and a good deal more value to the
publb: thun tlie defence of political
graft to which the Colonist has devoted Its efforts. Mining is the basic Industry of Brltlsii Columbia, and the'
largest wealth producer of the piov-
ince. A newspaper that seeks to be of
real service to the community should
give reasonable publicity to mining,
being careful that such publicity is
honest and reliable, and not intended
to mislead investors by the advocacy
of some worthless or discreditable
promotion. The Inconsistency of the
Colonist Is exposed hy the facts that
Its owner, S. H. Matson, made his lirst
rise out of mining; and that while his
editorial staff hns Instructions, or
stated It had, not to publish any mining news, it will accept a statement as
to mining, however unreliable, provided a cheque accompanies it. Such
journalism is tlie curse of uny community. No wonder the names of
those connected with such a policy

"Old Man" Simpson, formerly editor
and manager of thin paper, bus again
taken up newspaper work and lias entered the Held ut Victoria, the city
beautiful, his latest venture being
"Tho Victorian," a smart, clean and
ably edited weekly paper. The "Old
Man" has established a number of
papers along the Crows Nest. He
founded tho Wardner International,
the Marysville Tribune und the Wattsburg Wrinkle. He la directly responsible for putting Cranbrook and Lethbridge on the map. His column "Observations by the Old Man" was read
from ocean to ocean. Everybody was
anxious to read Simpson's paper. In
1904 the present editor accepted n
"alt" with the "Old Man" as printer,
remaining with the Herald ever since.
Simpson  was a good fellow to work j
ment at the time, nnd politicians explained that Sir William Mulock did It
in self-defence fearing that Ur. Coulter might he a candidate in opposition to him. It is certain that other
business considerations must hnve actuated Sir William for he was himself one of the most efficient cabinet
ministers we huve ever had.
The present postmaster-general, Mr.
fJasgraln. bus on more than one occasion publicly apologized, and disowned responsibility, for the acts of
liis predecessor, Pelletier, and particularly Pelletier's action in dismissing men who had been in the postal
service for ninny years merely to
make way for Conservative ward heel
"rs. In view of tliis und his evident
intention to run his department on
business lines, we doubt whether Mr.
Cnsgraln bus uny knowledge of the

my event would advise Institutions and husInesK men to pay no attention to these announcements and
to continue to deliver their own meS'
seugers. Invoices, letters nnd so on
wliere It is cheaper than by mall.
The strongest evidence of Inefficiency
In post ollice management is shown
hy tho fact that large corporations
'ike the gas and electric companies,
■ven when the city rate was one cent,
found it was more profitable to em-
ploy their own messengers, A number
of private concerns liave for years
conducted a newspaper delivery system in the cities in opposition to the
nost ollice, charging one-half to one-
tlilrd the postal rates. These con-
corns hud to pay rent, taxes. Insurance, light, management and other
overhead expenses and yet they have
mnde money. The service between
Montreal and Toronto Is so unsatisfactory that many concerns use the
express companies instead of the
malls, though tiie latter are cheaper.
Kven the special delivery letter Is
slower than the express as recent experience bus demonstrated; although
Dr. Coulter has placed his right-hand
man, Mr. Hoss, 'to exercise special
supervision over Montreal and Toronto offices.
Hon. Mr. Casgrain ought to investigate this situation before he permits
Itr. Coulter to threaten the business
interests of the country with fines and
eizures of their correspondence. To
!iut the matter In a nutshell, the post
office department is trying to force the
husiness men of Canada to pay for Incapacity in handling the affairs of the
department on efficient nnd economical lines. Husiness men willingly pay
their share of the war tux but they
decidedly object to pay for Inefficiency and poor service.

Mr. Thomas Itoberts, a teamster
In this city, has received
the following letter from Mr. J. Barry
who left here with the second batch
of men. This letter was passed by
Censor No. 642.
Dear Old Chum:
Can't tell you how glad I was to
hear from you. I am glad to say
your letter found me here about six
weeks ago. We have been resting
the past two weeks and expect to go
Into the trenches again tonight. Well,
old sport, we had a pretty lively time
here. Of course I am not allowed to
tell you where we are, so you have
throe guesses, I can tell you we have
lost quite a number of men. A Oerman machine gun was turned on us
after taking a trench. Say, Tom, It
was sure bell lot loose for a while
Our men were falling thick and fast,
but we fought on. It wan trying but
we won out. This place is supposed
to be the worst spot along thc battle
front. Well, Tom, I am sticking
pretty well. My feet get a little sore
at times; otherwise I am quite well.
I would like to tell you about this
place we aro in now, but I can't.
I went through one of the ruined
churches. It was all blown to pieces.
I got a piece of the stained glass window, which I expect to bring along
with me. There arc a lot of other
buildings blown and torn to pieces.
House after house has alt tho windows
torn out or a hole In the side of it.
Destruction can be seen on all sides.
Tom, old boy, I don't foel like writing today. There Is a something In
me which holds mo back. So I am
going to give up. Will drop you a
line shortly. I suppose things nre
pretty quiet with you In Cranbrook.
By the way I would liked to have got
yoar letter before I left TMworth.
Wo vtffo Uvtag  right  bealde  your
nephew. Would have been delighted
to have seen him. Well, Tom, goodbye, give my best regards to Mrs. Roberts and Frank, and say: We are not
down-hearted yet! But on the con-'
trary we are still happy.
From your old friend

with whom ordinary sugar is found to disagree.
3. Apart from its nutritive qualities it possesses valuable medicinal
These statements, of course, havc reference only to honey that Js absolutely pure. Erroneous opinions and much mistaken prejudice have unfortunately arisen with regard to the use of honey, owing to the unpleasant effects upon many persons of the various compounds, consisting chiefly of
glucose made from potatoes or rice and sulphuric acid, which of late years
have been in such large quantities sold as a substitute for pure honey. It ls
of the greatest importance, if its beneficial effects are to bc enjoyed, that the
honey consumed be pure.
Till comparatively recent times honey was the chief sweetening agent ln
use. After the Introduction of cane sugar, however, the use of honey ln this
and other countries largely declined. But tiiere Is no doubt that of late
years It has been more and more realized that pure honey does possess qualities which it is impossible to replace. There has been a larger and ever increasing demand for It, till there seems every prospect of its coming again
