Tim laet that Captain Amundsen

38 days, while the Scott party had;

Pulp industry: The pulp industry is
growing rapidly, on account of the
demand of local and western coast
centres. There is also opening up a
large trade with Japan, on account
of which one nrHI is saM to lie doubling the capacity of its plant to
answer the call ol the Oriental market.
Sea market: Taking the year as a
whole the very best conditions have
prevailed upon, the coast. There has
been a large export trade to foreign
countries, and an increased amount
to the I'nited States.
Local market: Local demand has
occupied a my prominent pises In
the lumber trade during the psst
vear. While a large part of tbe
building permits ol about 140,000,000
in the large coast cities are for steel
and concrete buildings, there will
continue to be great activity in
dwelling house construction. There is
a constant Influx ol people Irom
Eastern Canada and the Continent,
through whom thc prosperity of the
lumber trade is assured.
Rail market: The good crop on the
prairie last year will have a wonderfully stimulating effect upon the British Columbia lumber industry. Lumber merchants are already coming to
Vancouver to ensure prompt and full
shipments to tbe centres whieh are
certain to undergo great expansion in
the nest twelve months. RuiMing is
general in tne prairie provinces, and
rail trade is sure to he great.
Railway development: There have
heen under construction In the province 1,400 miles of new railroad during tbe past year, and there will he
Immense additions to this in the
course ol 1914,
The five new lines under construction In the province will have the
elter-t of opening up not quantities
of timber heretofore considered Inaccessible and unprofitable to market.
This Is particularly true tn the ease
of the Orand Trunk Purine, along
whose route there are already springing up several sawmills with «, total
capacity ol about 250,000 feet B. M.

there will be a local demand    in all

Feb. 10, 1013.
\V. A. Anstie, President, Mountain
Lumber Manufacturers' Association, Calgary, Altai !
Dear Sir: I notice in the issue of
the 8th Instant of the Nelson Daily
News that Ihe/ minister of lands at
Victoria has already announced his
intention to introduce an amendment
to the Land Act which will, if passed, [dace an additional burden on thc
lumber industry of this province. On
seeing this announcement I wired you
from Sirdar asking that you immediately take this matter up with the
different boards of trade in tlie interior of British Columbia with a
view to obtaining their support in
suppressing any legislation at this
session which will tend to increase
the taxation of the lumber Industry
in the interior nf British Columbia.
It was demonstrated beyond the
shadow of a doubt at the recent annual meeting of the Lumber Manufacturers' association held at Nelson
on tlie 7th instant that the average
cost of production in connection
with the lumber output of the mountain mills during 1012'amounted to
approximately JLVllO per thousand
feet, exclusive of government royalties. The average price received for
tbe product by Ihe members of the
association was approximately $15.fill
per thousand feet. I might say for
your information that in*, tne case of
the Crows Nest Pass Lumber company, which 1 am managing, the average net price received for lumber
was Rlfi.22 per thousand feet.
These averages will convince any
reasonable person or body of men
that these operations are conducted
al a loss. A number of the firms
having exceptionally difficult logging
conditions have lost large, sums of
money. Others having exceedingly
favorable conditions on which lo operate will probably have come out
even, or possibly to show a small
profit. In no case has any operator
or concern in   the interior of British

mills located on the Pact'fib slope,
who have the advantage of a tremendous export trade as ' well as
their local markets, but continue to
dump their surplus product and low-
grade material on our prairie markets at prices below actual cost of
production from lime to time whenever an accumulation of this class of
material exists. The main reason
that the coast mills are in a position to do this is owing to the fact
that they possess a highly superior
quality of timber. In fad they are
operating in the most desirable class
of timber now in existence, from
which ihey obtain a very large percentage of the higher grades of lumber, for which they obtain correspondingly high prices, enabling them
therefore to sell their accumulation
of low grade stock at prices below
the average cost of production.

These conditions have existed for a
number of years; additional taxation
has heen levied from year year to*
year against this industry. The cost
of logging and other operations has
increased nearly 10 per cent each
year during the last five years owing
to the limber near the mills having
been exhausted which has entailed
longer hauls und large additional investments in logging equipment, besides the continuous increase in the
cost of labor, the scarcity of which
has made logging operations during
the summer months practically prohibitive.

Liberalism and Nationalism spells the

ruthlessly in the search for the main

is a man of brevity and conciseness.
His executive ability is marked. It
is a pity he has to waste so much

help in many solutions,
Pelletier has  many prejudices     to

OPERATION TOR fll/ES FAILED.
ZAM-BUK WAS THEN TRIED AND
WORKED A CURB.
Writing Irom Poplar, B. C, Mrs.
0. Hanson, wile ol the proprietor ol
the Commercial hotel, says: "I suffered lor years with bleeding piles. The
pain was so bad at times that I
could hardly walk, and ordinary
remedies seemed utterly unable' to
give me any ease. Finally I decided
to undergo an operation, and went to
thc .Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane. There they performed an operation and did all they could for mc.
For a time I was certainly better,
but within 12 months the trouble
started again and the piles became as
painful as ever. 1 tried liniments,
hot poultices, various 'pile cures,'
and indeed everything I could think
would be likely to do any good, hut
still I continued to suffer, and the
shooting, burning, stinging pains, the
dull, aching and wretched 'worn-out'
feeling that the disease causes continued as had a. ever.
"One day I reed about Zam-Buk
and thought I would try It. Tbe first
one or two boles gave roe more
case than anything else I had tried,
so I went on with the treatment. In'
a short time I began to leel altogether different and better, and I saw
that Zam-Buk was going to cure me.
Well, I went on using it, and hy the
time I bad used six boxes I was delighted to find myself entirely cured.
That was three years ago, and Irom
then to the present time there has
been no return ot the trouble,"
Zam-Buk is a sure cure lor piles,
eczema, ulcers, abscesses, cold sores,
chapped hands, varicose sores, burns,
scalds, bruises inflamed patches, and
all skin injuries and diseases. Druggists and stores everywhere, 50c.

AT THE FIRST REGULAR MEETING OF THE   NEW COUNCIL,
HELD MONDAY AFTERNOON
LAST, THERE WAS A FULL
ATTENDANCE   AND   A
OREAT   DEAL OF IM*
PORTANT   BUSINESS
WAS UP FOR CONSIDERATION.
The council chamber was more than
ordinarily crowded at last Monday1
afternoon's meeting ol tbe city lathers. Delegations from several local
institutions wen present, seeking assistance, if seme kind or other. Irom
the city-
Mayor Bowness presided aad Aldermen Erickson, Leask, Ward, Clapp,
Carr and Kennedy were seated round
tbe board.
Minutes of last meeting were read
and approved.
Correspondence Irom Contractor
McCaflum, re certain items ol expense, in  connection witb the laying
I down of the cement sidewalk in front
of the sew post oflee was considered,
aad it was moved tbat the sum     of
|S2S he paid to Mm.
I Neit the several delegates were
given a bearing.
1 Mr. J. P. Fink and Mr. W. H. Wit-
son    appeared   in behalf ot tbe city.
I band.        They        bad        engaged
I a new band leader
in tbe person of Mr. Austin, to whom
they bad agreed to pay a salary of
J75 per month. Whilst this change
had, so lar, gone a long way to restore the bead to its one time efficiency, besides increasing the number
! of bandsmen, it was more than the
executive ot tbe bead could   lor  the
| time being, see their way dear to
accomplish, to pay this regularly. In
I the past the city bad contributed so
much per month, in certain seasons,
and the delegates requested •     con-
, t instance of this policy. Tbe matter
was referred to tbe finance committee.
| A deputation Irom tbe Young Men's
club, was next given a bearing. Their
request was that tbey be granted the
privilege ol draining off tbe swimming pool at midnight on Saturdays,
tbey also naked lor a special water
rate. Mr. flaafMd, la speaking lor
the delegation, pointed out tbat tbe
Young Men's club, waa an undenominational Institution, open to every
young man In tbe city. The swimming pool, would make ot It one of
the most popular resorts In the city.
It would take halt an hour to drain
the pool, aad Mr. BaafleM guaranteed, on behall ol tbe club,management that tbe work would be properly attended to. Tbe Question ot
special, water rate was referred to
the water committee, Messrs. Clapp
and Leask.
•I. H. Thamer then approached the
hoard and pointed out tbat be would
like to be accorded the privilege   ol
I numbering Ibe houses and of putting
up the names ol all streets at their
respective comers. His street signs
would be of galvanized iron, black)
enamelled, with wWte letters. The
numbering ot residences, stores, etc.,
would he paid (or by the occupants.
The best, brass numbers would cost
SI, hut it would not be necessary lor
householders to use tbat class of
figure. After doe discussion the
matter was referred to the board   of
I works committee.
I Mr. Wm. Bardgett was next given a
hearing. He appeared as the representative of a number of cattle,
owners, resident within aad without

what he wanted, was to hare the
pound keeper's rake-off cut gut.
Mayor Bowness intimated that it
was the intention ol tlie council to
revise the pound bylaw ut un early
date, and Mr. Bardgett's representations would receive every consideration!
Tbe Cranbrook Agricultural association next came forward, in tlie person ol Mr. W. B. McFatlane, who, In
a few words, requested a grant of j
11000 from the city, in the course
of his remarks he briefly referred to
his visit to Victoria to interview the
finance minister, Hon. Price Ellison,
who had taken the stand that Bo
prosperous and progressive a city us
Cranbrook, should be prepared to
finance its annual Agricultural exhibition, ss'being one of tlie most profitable forms of publicity thut could
be conceived of. for a city situuted Bo
favorably in tho center of a large
agricultural district. Mr. T. dill
endorsed the remarks made by Mr.
McFarlane, und Mr. - O'C'unuell also
said a few words along similar lines.
He emphasized the fact that a contribution of $1000, would only
amount to u few cents per hewl, and
he thought every ratepayer in Ihe
city would gladly contribute his mite
to ensuting the success and expansion
of Cranbrook's Agricultural exhibition. This appeal was also listened
to carefully, and after sonic discussion, was referred to ihe finance committee.
The board ot school trustees asked
for a special meeting to discuss
school matters, and an assurance was
given that their wishes in the matter
would be complied with at thc earliest possible moment.
The finance committee's report on

Biggs, whose liotnesUwl occupies the

mica has been discovered on his larm.
He travelled Irom the fort to Lac la

BRONCHITIS SUFFERER
Takes Druggist's Advice With
Splendid Result.
If anyone should know the worth
of a medicine, It Is the retail druggist
who sells it over his counter every
day In the week, and I. ln a position
to know what remedy gives the best
satisfaction.
Mrs. Frank H. Ullne, of West Sand
Lake, N. Y., says: "For a number of
years I was a great suffered from
bronchitis. Last July I had an attack
which was more severe than any, and
my friends thought I could not recover
from It Then I was advised by my
druggist to try Vlnol. which I did,
with wonderful results. My cough
has left me; I have gained ln weight
and appetite, and I am a. strong as
ever 1 was. I advise all who have
bronchitis, chronic coughs, or who are
run down to try Vinol."

bad been made lo the Otieen's hold,
which would permit ol entrance io

matter was relerred to Aldermen
Kennedy and Ward.
Another matter presented wns that
ol having the ditch through lown
drained off, and tbat the city ciie*-
neer be instructed to prepare plans
and estimates of cost.
It was strongly pointed out that
this ditch is a menace to thc health
ol the city and a constant source ol
danger to little children living in
its vicinity. Complaint was made
of the indiscriminate manner in
which residents along Its banks,
emptied their household refuse and
otber rubbish Into the ditch.
Tne suggestion ol placing preparation ol plans, etc., in the bands ol
tbe city engineer, elicited Irom tbat
official the complaint that the city
offices provided no adequate accommodation lor the storage ot plans,
maps, etc. Asked by thc mayor
what such accommodation would
cost, the city engineer replied: "I
Have no Idea. It Is not a case of

EDITORIAL NOTES
The , Herald    devotes a very great
deal of space In this issue to a      review nf thc ureal lumbering industry
of this province.      We have no apology to make for so doing. This      industry   is    the greatest   we possess,
upon its future prosperity ami expansion    depends in very great measure
thc welfare and the, development    uf
practically every resource we possess.
The wide range'   ol the facts publish-
ed, gleaned   from    authentic sources
will convey    to every reader a fairly
lull anil authentic outline of this vast
industry.    That is one of the reasons
why we    are devoting so much space
to its discussion, another, and    fully
as important reason, is to arouse the
electorate tn a   well founded conception of the   bungling   manner     with
which   this all    important   Industry
has been and is lieing treated by   trie
Jlcllride administration,   more    particularly,     what   is   known   as   the
Mountain Lumbermen's section of the
operatians.      It is quite clear    that
tbe Mountain   Lumbermen are struggling under   very   unjust and ill-con-
ceived taxation imposts, which places|
them   nt   a great disadvantage      in
competition    with coast competitors.
II will be noted that one among   the
several   communications on this subject is to be presented tn the    local
board    of   trade at  its next regular
meeting and   il will tic thc part    of
wisdom for nil members to fomiliar-
izc themselves with the (acts therein
and come to the meeting prepared  to
discuss   the    topic   intelligently and
impartially and   in the true interests
of the province and of its leading industry.
The Herald regrets io notify its
Invermere readers that in the telegraphic summary of Dominion public
works', estimates, published Inst
week, thc sum of $20,000 was Riven
as the amount of the appropriation
for the erection of a wharf at thai
point. The official copy nl the "estimates" has since, come to hand and
we find that the actual sum, set aside
lor this work Is $2,000.

IHE NEW BUNK ACT
"m USUI"
Ai the inpsoii't day when so many
plays arc beiiiK presented which deal
wilii (]iie.stiiuiam> subjects, it is a
relief tn turn lo a drama which
lireallirs purity and Kon»l fellowship
and leads tin* way lo a brighter view
of life and humanity.
Such a play is "The Rosary,"
written by Edward E. Hose, expressly for Messrs. Rowland and
t'lifford, and produced hy thorn.
The theme of the play concerns:
a man and woman happily married
and surrounded with every luxury
that money and culture can secure.
Nut thc husband is an unbeliever, an
atheist, without faith ot any kind.
There is a jarring note in the
household harmony, a .personality at
war with the peace and love of its
mcmlHTH. No one notices tbis until
a Iriend of the husband comes, Father
Kelly, a priest of the modern world
with a deep insight Into human nature and a divine love for bis fellow
men. And when stress and trouble
come, when the home is wrecked and
husband and wife are brought down
to ihe depths of suffering agony, it is
tbp priest's calm courage and faith
that saves them, drives away the
clouds of suspicion, doubt, mistrust,
and brings them both into the sunlight of hope and love.
The play will he seen at the Auditorium Monday, February 17th.

DEATH IFJU. NOUN
Calgary, Alta., Feb. 11.-P. .1.
Nolan, one of the best known lawyers
in Western Canada, died last evening
after a few days' illness of hemorrhage.
He was probably the best known
criminal lawyer in the west, and one
of the best after-dinner speakers in
Canada. He was 17 years of age,
and bad been in Western Canada
since 1M9.
He was married and leaves a wife
and one son, who is in his last year
at Alberta,University,
SCH.1KCT OP A GREAT DEAL OF
CRITICISM ON Tilt: 1'AKT OP
the opposition—Chief
complaint high kates
op interest.
In the course ol the discussion of
the new Hank Act, Introduced by
Finance Minister White, there have
been a series of strong objections
raised to several clauses. Among
j those who have spoken strongly In
I behalf 0f the western settlers, were
Mr. W. A. Buchanan (Medicine, Hat)
and Mr. .1. (1. Turrit. (Assluiboia).
CANADA SHOULD TAKE WARNING.
Mr. .1. C Turriff declared that Mr.
While's bill was altogether in the in-
, lerests of tbe bankers,' so much so
that many people throughout Canada
thought it must have heen drawn by
the Hankers' association. Practically no change was made in favor of
the depositor or the borrower, the
changes were practically all iiv favor
of tbe bankers. Amalgamations, in
his opinion, should be conditional upon the consent of parliament.
Tlie merging of tremendous financial interests in Canada was, accord,
ing to Mr. Turriff, one of the greatest dangers whieh legislation had, to
meet. A few men had now practical
monopoly of the banks and the railways, and if the process were continued for ten years this monopoly
would control practically every interest in Canada. The danger point
hud been already realized ln tbe
United States, and Canada should
take warning from conditions there
and apply the remedy here before
ii became too late, Three banks
now practically controlled half the
hanking capital of Canada, and under
Ihe present law the finance minister
bad the power to allow a merger of
these three institutions.
Mr. Turriff thought that il was
anomalous lo allow Canadian, banks
to send one hundred million dollars to
New York, when they were charging
from seven to twelve per cent interest to borrowers in the west.. He
believed there should be a limitation
of the real estate holdings of banks,
which were now. growing enormously
large. There should also tie a penalty clause for charging more than
seven per cent interest to hoi rowers,
and for violation of tbis then* should
he a fine of $1,000 for the first offence. $10,000 for the second offence,
and penitentiary for the third offence.
He declared that the people of the
west, at any rate, were much more
concerned in the Hank Act than they
were in the naval question, "If we
must have a navy," they said, "give
us the Laurier scheme, but tbe Hank
Act touches us more vitally."
LOANS TO FARMERS AND
" JUNCHEHS.
I Mr. W. A. Huchanan said that the
banks of Canada were entitled *.o
much credit for the development of
tbe west. Without them and the financial accommodation they had given,
Ibe west would not have developed as
ii has. He tlnnght that tile government .would do well to consider the
suggestions which hud been made for
state loans to farmers. The limitation of interest charges was another
suggestion that should be looked Into. The government's bill authorized banks to loan tbe farmers on
threshed grain and to ranchers ou
cattle. He thought the provision
might well be extended so that loans
could be made to farmers on cattle.
'['his WOUld encourage mixed fanning,
which was generally desired. Ranchers should be allowed to borrow on
sheep anil horses as well as on
tattle.
ELKO'S HINT OUTLOOK
(Special to tlir Herald),
Klko, II. I'., Kob. 13.-Rpports of
the pnenomrnal success of farmers
ami fruit growers in tlie Elko and
Kast Kootenay districts continue to
command the attention of real estate men and Investors, especially in
view of the record influx of newcomers .booked for arrival during; the
coming season. A case which has
attracted particular attention Is that
of II. W. Maguirc, owner of 160 acres
of fruit land near Klko, which he has
brought to its present slate of cultivation in six years' time Irom a
piece of unpromising brush. Mr. Ma-
guire's fruit larm is now worth a
small fortune, the yield coming from
a small cultivated tract of about one-
fourth the entire acreage.
Recent railway development in this
section of tlie province has now prac-
tkcally assured thc position of Klko
as   the entrance   to    I lie   t'olumbia

MANITOBA'S VOICE
PREMIER    ASQCITH MAKES INTEREST I N(i STATEMENT AT
GREAT   MEETING IN
DUNDEE.
London, Feb. t— Premier Asquith
who received the freedom of the city
of Dundee last week addressed a
meeting of constituents of East. Fife
last night and dealt, with the recent
speeches of Honar Law and Austen
Chamberlain on food taxation. "Ho
had failed," he said, "to understand
why the burden of responsibility was
to be thrown upon the colonies. I do
not believe the dominions would son-
sent for a moment to enter into such
a position."
Continuing, he said, "1 have received a remarkable document from
the Manitoba Grain Growers' association, signed by the president, who
tells me that it is an association representing ten thousand farmers in
the province. These are the people
who, if food taxes were .imposed, are
believed to benefit by them.
"This is the voice of Manitoba,
bear what they say: 'Newspaper despatches indicate that a movement is
afoot in Great Britain to tax foreign
wheat in order to give preference to
wheat from the overseas Dominions.
Il is stated that the intention is to
refer the Question to the* overseas
Dominions. This is a vital matter
to tbe farmers of Canada and
president of the Manitoba Grain
Growers' association I wish to call
your attention to a resolution unanimously adopted January 8: "That
this convention oppose any preferential tariff' scheme tbat will give
western grain growers a higher price
for their grain at the expense of, the
Hritish workman.' "
Then, the letter to Premier Asquith proceeded as follows: "Manitoba farmers believe that the Hritish
trade policy is a Hritish question entirely, and resent any attempt on
the part of Canadian interests to interfere with matters which affect the
Hritish people alone. When it is suggested that the question be referred
to the overseas Dominions we considered wo should give expression to
our views, particularly as tbe grain
growers of Western Canada, who are
the largest exporters in the British
empire and tbat Great Britain is our
chief market at the present time,
We wish the people of Great Britain
distinctly to understand that we have
no desire to .place any additional
burden on the British consumer for
our benefit.
"Wc believe that anv preference
given to wheat from the ovesseas
Dominions will simply result in an
increased cost to the British consumer. We are quite willing to face
the world's competition In the British market and are anxious only that
British manufacturers should be given
free access to thc Canadian market."
Concluding, Premier Asquith said:
"The relations between the mother
country and her great Dominions
have never heen more intimate and
affectionate. In the creation of the
South African Union and upon the
grant of responsible government to
tbe Transvaal we sec a triumph of
Liberal principles and the Liberal
policy, aud throughout the empire
there is everywhere a' growing resolve for closer co-operation.in the
great and common task of imperial
defence,"

BURNS   TO   REBUILD   OUTSIDE
CALGARY.
Calgary, Alta., Fob. 12.—The decision bus been practically arrived at
by the P. Burns company, whose
meat packing plant wns destroyed by
tire last month, that tbe plant will
not be rebuilt on the former site in
East Calgary, lint Hint a new Industry, very much larger thai* the old,
will be established outside the citv
limlts.
The probable wile of the proposed
new industry will be Hie Bow Vnlley
Farm, n tract of M.nnrt acres owned
by P. Burns, about ten miles from
Calgary.
Tbe tentative plnns for the new in-
dnslry contemplate Ibe establishment
of a .packing plant several limes
greater iu proportion than the one
destroyed, which Mill employ one
housatid men, and Ibc building of a
town which, it is snid, will be named

The proposal involves the expenditure of several millions of dollars.

GROWTH OP POPULATION.
Sir Richard McBride, In 'the course
of'his speech on the address,, spoke ol
the number of new Bottlers who have
recently come into this province, ln
amplification of his remarks, the Victoria Colonist obtained the following
statement- showing .the number of
Immigrants arriving in Canada during the fiscal year ending March 31,
1912, 'and for thc eight months ending November 30 last:
Total
11)12. 8 mos. 20 mos.
Mar.  Provs.  .  15,973   11,205.    30,238
Quebec   50,002   52,835   103,437
Ontario ...  ...100,227   98,flOD   11111,136
Manitoba   . .. 13,177   30,480    7"»,803
Sask 40,158   34,238     '11,300
Alberta     ...  .  15,957   37,380     81,310
B.  C 51,829- 40,900     <M~<H
Mr. IV. 1). Scott, dominion cinv
missioner or immigration, estimates
that the immigration tr. this province in December numbered at least
12,9011, which would bring thc total
for twenty-one months up to 110,-
789. In these figures are nol included arrivals in the province from
other parts of Canada. It would be
difficult to ascertain how many
should be added for these, but we
do not think it extravagant to estimate that the total number of persons who have come to reside in
this province during the last twenty.
one months at 200,900, which is
nearly two-thirds of what was returned by the census ol 1911 ns the
total population of the province.
It will be seen Irom the above table
that British Columbia comes third in
tlie number of immigrants during the
period mentioned, and that it received more than three times as
many as the Maritime Provinces.
This is a very remarkable condition
of things.
These figures are really of tremendous importance in their bearing on
the future. In a year or two, if all
goes well, the Panama Canal will be
opened for traffic, and a tide .of immigration will flow through it into
this province. That British Columbia will then lead all the other parts
of the Dominion in the expansion of
its population .seems a foregone conclusion. It is lime fo begin to get
ready fir what will certainly bap-
pen.

will note the topography, the bodies
of water and water powers, tbe extent of the absolute forest land, ami
the agricultural areas, the nature of
thc soil and, in a rough way, tho

before 1913 comes to an end.
This is the promise of Colonel Geo-
N. (Joethals, chief engineer of tbe
Panama Canal. It was made at a
dinner in bis honor, given him by
the Lehigh University cJub, of New
York at thc Hotel Astor tbe other
night.
It was Colonel Goethals first appearance in -New York in the role of
an after dinner sneaker and the reception accorded him was as warm
as any ever accorded to any man at
a similar function in this city.
The diners greeted him with college yells; they called him the great-
t engineer of his generation; they
referred to him as the idol of the
American people, and when a letter
from President Taft was read, in
which the president said that Colonel (tceili.-.ls .should he rewarded witb
a major-generalcy, tht.- diners arose
in their places and chccr«*d a full
minute.
The question of the completion of
the canal," he said In ending his
speech, "is a question of the completion of the Culcbra cut and the
lock gates. There was sonn* delay

When she emitted her 281st cackle
she was celebrating a performance
that came within one egg of equalling the highest record ever made by
a hen upon this continent. She competed witb 655 ether hens of all ages,
breeds and size.
Lady Show You first came into the
limelight in the May report, when
Director Quisenberry said of her:
"There is a White Plymouth Rock
pullet from Illinois. No 717, tbat
has laid tit eggs in 64 consecutive
days. She appears healthy and vigorous, and we hope site can continue'
her good record for at least a few
more days."
His hopes were realiz-ed for tbe
little lady went right on and laid an
egg every day for nearly three
mooihf.
After laying R2 eggs she missed one
day and then got busy on tbe job
again, laying as regularly as the sun
roae.
"This ben is conclusive proof,"
savs the director, "that It is possible to have both utility qualities
and fancy or standard bred points
combined in the same flock and in the
same hen. This hen is bred from a
male and female whieli were both

hen.''
j   Lady Show   You weighs si* pounds
'and has laid several times lier    own
weight in egev during the period    ol
one year.
During the first ten months of the
trial she consumed 18 pounds nf dry
mash, 32 pounds of grain, and two
pounds ol grM, hone am! shell. During these ten months she was not
broody, nor did she moult.
The record of 282 eggs in one year
was made hy a barred rock ben at
Ouelph, Canada. However, it is asserted that the Canadian hen laid a>
small egg with a poor shell, while
Lady Show You's eggs weighed on am

The Herpicide Company want everyone to have a copy ot their booklet

the subject of saving anil cultivating
the hair.
If the present-day men and women
would begin to live up to the teachings of this little booklet ii is doubtful if the next generation would find u
baldheaded man or lady wearing false
hair.
It is just as easy to have robust
and beautiful hair as to have thin,
scraggy hair or no hair at all. 11 the
scalp is kept clean and freo from dandruff the hair grows naturally and
luxuriantly.
Thc booklet tells how this may be
most effectively accomplished by the
use of Newbro's Herpicide. Herpicide
destroys the germ   which causes dan-
drult. frees the head from dirt and
scarf flakes. The hair heroines light,
HulYy and beautiful.
Newbro's Herpicide is the original
remedy that kills the dandruff germ
for which there are many imitations
and substitutes said to be just as
good.     Iluy nothing but tho original.
Semi 10c. in postage to The Herpicide Co., Dept. II., Detroit, Mich.,
and a nice sample will be sunt' with
Ihe booklet
Applications obtained at the better

is quoted verbatim:
MISFORTUNE,  NOT FAULT.
"A Message to the Public; Nut due
lo faulty organization, but to misfortune in nil the risks which had to he
undertaken, one, the loss of tlie
puny transport in March, 1911, obliged me lo start later Hum I had

'I'he weather throughout the outward

returned to the glacier in line shape

Kilo astonishing failure of the man
whom we had least expected to fail.
Seaman    Edgor   Evans was thought
the strongest man ut the party and

"March 2!i, 1012."
Surgeon Atkinson and his party
gathered the records and effects of
the dead and read burial services over
their bodies and erected a cairn and
cross to their memory over thc inner
tent in which lie buried them. A record of the finding of their bodies
was left attached to the cross.
The party then searched for 20
miles south, endeavoring to discover
the body of Captain Oates. It was
not found, but another calm and record were left in the vicinity to his
memory,
It should here most certainly be
noted that the southern party nobly
stood hy their sick companions to the
end. And in spite of their distressing condition they had retained
every record and 35 pounds of geological specimens which proved to be of
the greatest scientific value. This emn
phasi/es the nature ot their journey.
Tho searching party then burned
northwest, having decided to direct
their efforts nest to the relief ol
Lieutenant Campbell and the northern
party.   .

(Special to tho Herald).
Edmonton, Alta., Feb. 5.—Rev. A.
Forbes, a missionary of the Presbyterian .church, stationed at Grande
Prairie, announced in Edmonton today that a movement is under way
to keep the Peace River district,
north ot the 5th parallel, in the dry
column. Tho present northern
limit (or tho liquor train.' is Athabasca, 100 miles north of here. Mr.
Forbes reported that a recent plan
to establish a licensed hotel nt
Grande Prairie was opposed by a
large majority or sottlers in the district. Their petition is now beli>K
considered by Lieutenant Governor
Imlyea, stationed In Edmonton. The
missionary said that the settlers In
the district have recorded their unalterable opposition to the extension
of the license north of Athabasca,

all constitutional means to prevent
its extension nearer to our homes
and firesides."
