refused It, resolving to conquer the
hardships of their new life. The next

colony when the settlers so thoroughly
awed the Indians that none dared
molest them for several years, not indeed until thc death of Massoit,

of the unfriendly Indians ut the moment when the messenger from the

HIGH SCHOOL CLUB
Lust Friday night (he High School
Club had a particularly enjoyable
meeting,   Chief Bunbury entertained
the boys In a humorously reminiscent
vein, uml mingled a great deul of sound
advice with a thrilling account of his
eventful experience. Ills kindly Interest In the Club mid Its activities Is
very much appreciated by tlle members,
The second Item of the evening's
programme wns a debute ou the subject, "Resolved that limitation of anna
incuts would ensure the peucc of the

League Orders
Game Replayed
Cumberland Has Appealed to I!.
C. F. A. Against Decision.
A meeting of tbe Upper Island
League wus held iu Nunalnio on Saturday last, when Cumberland was repre
sealed by Mr. W. Walker aud Mr. R.
Strachan.
The matter of playing the double
schedule was brought up, but Nunalnio
was not lu favor of It, und with Granby
disbanding, only three teums were left,
and these three ugreed to drop repetition of the schedule.
Cumberland's claim for two points
in the South Wellington game of Nov.
30, which was slopped before full time
was read and discussed. Referee Burnip Informed Manager Brown that the
game was stopped owing to darkness,
hut in his report to the executive lie
gave snow as Ihe reason for culling
the guine wilh 20 minutes to play.
The general feeling of the meeting
was that the game be replayed, and a
motion to that effect was carried.
Cumberland's claim for expenses was
given no consideration, and the gate
was ordered to be divided 50-50 between tlie teams.
Cumberland delegates intimated
that they would appeal, and this appeal is now In the hands of the secretary of the district executive. The replay was to have taken place on December 11, but this Is cancelled owing to the appeal.   -
Cumberland's delegates were good
enough sports to allow President McGregor to occupy the chair during the
whole of the meeting, although their
claim was against tlie club of which
he is secretary. A contrast to what
happened to Mr. Jas. L. Brown at the
previous meeting.
(The decision arrived at by the
league executive, with regard to the
replay of the Cumberland-South Wellington game, makes, it look like a
censure for Cumberland. The game
was undoubtedly stopped owing to
darkness. Had the game been started
at the time recognized by all football
experts at this time of the year. 2.30
or 2.-15, and had South Wellington not
been late in appearing on the field, tbJ
game could have been finished. Under
the circumstances South Wellington
Should at least be made lo pay Cumberland's expenses fdY the replay.—

the current mouth. Mr. MacKinnon
.nitil the hoard hail exceeded its estimate;;, and in order to he able to paj
salaries to the end of the year It
would he neeeub'ary to have another
$400. The Scliool Board had handled
ii good deal of expenditure this yen.'
in repairs, improvements, etc., some
of which had exceeded estimates,
Mr. MacKinnon took to himself the
major responsibility lor allowing ttw
expenditures to -unintentionally exceed their Income. He assured the
council that good value had beeu
seemed tor every dollar spent.
Tlie council decided to lay the mutter over until the Finance Committee
had held a meeting and found the exact condition of the hnances.
Mayor MacDonald was in the chair
with Aldermen Parnham, Pickard,
Banuermau, Thomson and Brown In
attendance.
A request was received from Harling & Lediugham for permission to install a larger gas storage tank at

Aid. Thomson again drew the council's attention to the condition of
Fourth Street, near the Courtenay
Road. This road is almost impassable owing to the large holes in it,
which are very dangerous, especially
to horses. A month ago the council

engineer to it, hut nothing had beeu
done.
The aldermen all ugreed that the
road was ln a disgraceful and dangerous condition.
His worship reported that the soldier houses were now all finished and
the only thing remaining to be done
was for the men to complete the agreements.
Tn regard to a bill owing the council by a man who received supplies,

MR. CLEMENTS DENIES
KNOWLEDGE OE ANY
ILLEGAL PRACTICES
Commencing at a time which will be very inconvenient I'm* many
at Christinas time, the E. & N. Railway Company announce thai
the reduced train service will go into effect on Monday, December
18, when there will be three trains only each way weekly.
The service will also be changed from the one previously in force
inasmuch as the train up from Victoria will run on Mondays
Wednesdays and Fridays, and the down trains, will leave Courtenay on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The down trains will connect with the Vancouver steamer in
the afternoon, but passengers from Vancouver will be unable lo
make connections with the up train any day in the week, necessitating a stop-over in Nanaimo. If the steamer service was altered
to leave Vancouver in the morning, instead" of Nanaimo as al
present, Island travellers could conimct with tlie boat every day.
The abbreviated schedule will upset mail service considerably.
especially during the last half of this month, when it is particularly
heavy. There will be no mail on Christmas Eve, Saturday, the
24th.
It is hoped the C. P. R. shipping department will be able to
arrange its service to connect with its train schedule.
The reduced train service is no surprise, as the number of pas-
isengers travelling of late has been very small on some days.
VANCOUVER.—"There Is absolutely
nothing to It." was the reply of Mr.
11. S. Clements witb reference to the
:umors of seeking election by plug
dug, or'olher illegal practices.
"The lirst Intimation I had of this
-.barge was when I returned to Van
couver Tuesday night," be stated. "If
liis man W. A. Bird, whoever he may
e, knew all about this a month ago,
:is he said lie did, why did he not expose it ul the lime. Instead of wail
ing until the eleventh hour, when I
had no chance of refuting the charge?
'I absolutely dctry these charges of
Illegal practices, and defy my accusers
to substantiate them. At all times
during the campaign I have striven to
conduct my drive for election according lo the most honorable methods
It was nothing more than an opposition ruse,to defeat mc. and I take il
very much to heart that they should
loop to such a trick," lie said.

The following article is taken from
the London Daily Mall and appeared
just before the recent apple show held
in the Crystal Palace:
Years ago John Macintosh, a sturdy
Scottish settler, was walking round
the homestead lie had made for himself on the northern shores of the St.
Lawrence River. Every stick and
stone of the building was his, and laid
with his own hands. As he was looking at his barn with a feeling of pride
he observed a Bmall sapling growing
out of the ground.
It was a nice sapling, straight and
healthy-looking, and thereafter for
three or four years Mr. Macintosh
treated it carefully.
In time the sapling grew into a
tree and blossomed, and he watched
with interest the single apple which
grew upon his foundling.
In the early autumn the apple
ripened to a beautiful red fruit, and
as it belonged to no known variety he
christened it the "Macintosh Red."
Year by year the tree throve and
bore a prolitlc crop, alld Mr. Macintosh acquired fame far and wide as
the producer of a new and splendid
apple.
This tree, growing at thc end of
Mr. Macintosh's barn, became the
parent tree of all the Macintosh Red
apples now grown in Canada and the
United States, and every apple so
named Is directly descended from this
founding of the farm.
As years passed the Macintosh Red
came to he one of the acknowledged
best among Canadian apples. Unhappily the hoary old parent tree
came to a sad end. There was a lire
at the homestead of John Macintosh,
and the barn and the tree perished together.
Grateful fruit-growers of Canada
subscribed £.100, and a monument
was erected on the spot where the
tree had stooil—the only monument
that has ever been erected to an apple.

PROTECTION OF PLANTS
FOR WINTER MONTHS
Experimental Farms Note.
A little protection will often bring
plants safely through the winter,
when, if they are left exposed, they
may either he killed outright or badly
injured and, in thc ease of fruit, the
erop may be much reduced. Plants
are also protected from mice in winter. Tbe plants usually protected from
the wealher are strawberries, raspberries, grapes and roses.
It has been found by experience
that, although strawberries wlll often
go safely through the winter witbou
being mulched, there are winter,
when It pays well to have the plant
protected by a light mulch ns In sucli
winters If the mulch ls not there the
plants will he killed. In mulching
strawberries the plan Is to wait until
hard frost or juHt before thc winter
sets In. aud then spread a light cover-
lug of loose straw over the plants.
All tbat is necessary in most places ia
enough to prevent sudden thawing ami
freezing, or just enough to cover the
plants. A thick mulch may do more
harm than good. The cleaner the
straw the less work there will be ia
eradicating weeds next summer.
Where raspberries are injured In
he winter they will he much protected and wlll, taking one year with another, come through much better If
the canes are bent over just before
winter sets in and the tips held down
with soil. The snow will cover them
sooner tbnn if they are not bent down.
Where there is very little snow and
the winters are very cold it has been
found desirable entirely to cover the
canes with soil.
Roses must be protected in most
places lu Canada to help ensure their
coming through the winter alive, and
protection is not always successful.
The most reliable method of protection is to cover the plant with soil.
Where this is not easily possible, the
base of the plant can be mounded up
with soil to a height of"twelve Inches
or more, and the top then bent over
and held down with soil. Then lr
boughs or leaves are thrown over the
lop to help collect the snow and give
greater protection It is desirable. In
the case of climbing roses, a good
plan is to cover them with a box
filled with dry leaves, making the top
watertight so the leaves will keep dry.
WHAT CANADA NEEDS
MOST IS SETTLERS
There are too many people in the
Britisli Isles and there are vast empty
spaces In Canada which, given human
occupation and human endeavor, wlll
blossom like the rose. Canada's problem is to establish a connection bo.
tween the people who have no land
and the land that has no people. Tbe
effort of Hon. F. D. Pattullo in going
to England In an effort to obtain settlors for 2,000,000 acres on the British
Columbia lilies of the Grand Trunk
Pacilic is the kind of action which will
have the most rapid and far-reacblug
effect on the future of Canada generally, and the prosperity of our nationally owned railroads.
In Great Britain the Canadian National Railways have recently made a
wide distribution of a booklet specially prepared for women, pointing out
the advantages for the proper kind of
women to make their homes in Canada.
STEEL  PASSENGER COACHES
With the adoption of steel passenger coaches came greater safety and
greater riding comfort—but also increased operating expenses. Steel cars
are not only more costly to construct
bul also cost more to haul because of
the fact that they increase immensely
the weight of the train. The Canadian National Railways operate a
greater proportion of steel coaches
than any other Canadian railway. The
steel car ls so heavy that It ls generally confined to main line use ou transcontinental runs.
JAPANS NEW PREMIER
WAS SLAVE IN STATES
Japan's new Premier, Koreltize
Takahashl, wus once a slave in the
United States. This remarkable fact
wub revealed by Mauzo Yosblda, wns
once a slave iu the United States.
This remarkable fact was revealed by
Jlanzo Voshlda. a Japanese merchant
In Montreal. Premier Takahashl. he
says, landed In Sau Francisco penniless many years ago, and was sold into slavery in the mines by a labor
agent. Prince Yuakara, a Japanese
envoy, on the way to London, heard
of the young Japanese slave, and becoming his friend, gave him money to
go to school. The future premier
made quite an advancement and, after acquiring a thorough knowledge
of English and seme acquaintance
with American business methods, returned to Japan.
EAGLES ATTACK AIRPLANES
Encounters with eagles above the
Pyrenees are reported to the London
Mall by British pilots who deliver
airplanes to the Spanish government.
The eagles reach a height of 10,000
feet and approach a machine in an
■igressive manner, but after flying
level with It for some time they dive
away to some mountain eyrie.
Before the war a French pilot cro s-
ing the Pyrenees in a small monopln ie
>vas ntlacked by a large eagle and h id
lo lire repealed shots before he could
drive It off.

THE LIBERAL VICTORY
During the war, when regulations were irksome ami the
task of governing the country no sinecure for those in
power at Ottawa, not unnaturally nearly everyone was
"agin the government." and made up their minds what they
would do when he next elect ion came along. The complete turnover Ht the polls on Tuesday proved that tlie
people had uot forgotten, in Bplte of the great issues placed
before them. One pleasing feature of the election is that
the Liberals have o clear majority over all others combined, ami should he nlile lo carry on without, making
complicated concessions to small parties, with particular
axes to grind.
The solidarity of Quebec's vote, where every one of the
sixty-live members elected is a Liberal, lias given the new
leader his majority, Tlie Influence nf Quebec's solidarity
will be atroiii; m Ihe new administration, As Sir Lomer
Gouin is a protectilnlst, the lower tariff proposals of the
Liberals should he very much modified. Already the new
leader has seen the wisdom of protecting tbe industries of
the country, and on the eve of election made the statement that the coal mining industry of Vancouver Island
would be protected against foreign fuel oil competition.
It is a matter for regret that the Hon. Arthur Meighen
■waa not returned, as his able services and experience
in the affairs oi tbe Dominion can ill be spared. No doub'
a seat will be found for him.
It ls sincerely hoped a more settled and prosperous state
01 affairs will pervade tlie Dominion, with increase in business and general prosperity. If all work for the welfare
of the nation this should not be long delayed.
DANGEROUS TO TRAFFIC
The attention of the District Government Engineer was
drawn over a month ago hy the City Council to the very
dangerous condilion of Fourth Street, outside the city
Mniits, but nothing has been done to remedy it. This road
runs on to the Courtenay highway and bears a lot of trallic
The roadbed is an old corduroy road and big holes occur
caused by the gravel and dirt falling through. Tlie danger
to horses as well as motor traffic is great and should be
removed at once. Perhaps a communication to the Minister
of Public Works would have a little more speedy results,
THE ELECTION
As an election means selection by majority of choice, it
I-, doubtful if there ever was any kind of election result
quite satisfactory to each participant and every adherent,
so the results of this week's election leaves mixed feelings
of satisfaction and "disappointment. One outstanding fact
remains, however, and that is tho truth that some good
men of sterling merit have been returned to private life
by rejection, while other good men of merit are launched
lr.to public life by election. Each candidate, whether
elected or rejected, must have been a worth-while man of
some kind, otherwise he would never have attracted the
favor and support of his followers; but there are not
enough offices to go round, so those rejected must take
a back seat with whatever philosophy they may find in the
situation, and a contemplation of these facts. Theirs is
now the duty to support the other man with loyalty as a
citizen none the less because the other man had the fortunes of political war on his side last Tuesday. I
SUGGESTIONS TO LEGISLATORS
Here are a few suggestions which Ihe New Denver
Leader offers our British Columbia legislators:
Don't avoid the wine when it is red, or highballs. You
are less harmful stewed than unstewed.
Avoid cabarets, joy-riding, and tbe "married and l
married" female of the species, for your home grocer must
have anxious moments when he reads of "them sort of
doin's."
Put your road and mining engineers iu pickle for a year
or two until wagon roads are built; also and likewise son-e
road superintendents aud many road foremen.
No kissing on the floor of the House; that belongs in the
cabaret, if the regulations are not too strict.
Deuteronomy 25-1, but for heaven's sake muzzle Bowser
and Farris, and then repeal some of the monstrosities now
on the statutes.
Wish the P. G. E.'on someone in the Old Country who Is
leaking money and can't leak fast enough.
Can the civil service commissioner and most of the civil
servants and make the balance work for their wages.
GUTTER MOTHERS AND THEIR OFFSPRING
Ily Arthur Ilrishane.
More interesting to women than any conference tnlk, is
Mrs. Cassldeute of Denver. She was accused of neglecting
live children. The judge suggested that the lady undergo
a surgical operation to prevent, the arrival of any more
children; otherwise he would take the children from her.
The judge explains that the idea was suggested by somebody else In the court room and taken up by bim merely
as interesting,
That's a new thought, to remedy civilization's defects by
surgery. That mother might well suggest some kind of an
operation on civilization or on some of tbe men responsible
for what ls called civilization.
ln old (lays, when newspaper circulation was made
rapidly, the bright young city editor would print In a row
five children of some wealthy citizen, dressed in spotless
white, trimmed with fur, and, below, in another row, the
live Cassldeute children, thin, dirty and neglected—with
this question: "Whoso fault Is it, the mother's fault, or the
fault of the bank account?"
A stupid saying is, "She might at least keep her homo
and her children clean." Cats are naturally clean, hut the
gutter cat is muddy; not that it Is innately a dirty cal, but
necause fate has male it a gutter cat. While civilization
makes gutter motheis, you will have gutter children.
We believe that all the trouble over in Ireland is due to
a mistake—but we have never been able to figure out whose
mistake it is.
Maybe, after all, those B. C. Doukobors only intend to
protest at the high cost of clothing. ^
Now tliat the election is over, we may all settle down to
the gentle little worries of making one dollar yield up the
value of 45 cents In meeting our coming Christmas budget.
Wonder If our next provincial election will have the
same perennial political patriots doing business at the same
old stand.
Some are born to fame; others find it in patent medicine

By Defeating Ladysmith Sunday
Last, Champions Made Their
Lead Unassailable.
The Cumberland United journeyed
to Ladysmith last Sunday to play
Ihelr last game in tbe present Upper
island League schedule. Tlie local
boys were at their best and managed
to come out on the right side of u 3-2
score.
The guino waa an exceedingly good
one from start to finish, fairly free
Irom fouls, aud with both sides dolor-
mined to win. Boyd, the Cumberland
gualle, brought oil* two miraculous
saves In thc lirst half, which drew
rounds of applause from the spectators. Tho score at half-lime was 2-1
iu favor of Cumberland, Ollie Harrison
and \V. Milligan being the scorers.
The second period opened up as
strongly as tlie lirst, wilh the Cumber-
laud wing half-backs, Irvine and
O'Donnell, the shining lights. These
two wing halves were playing groat
football and were able to hold tbe
Ladysmith forwards at all stages ol*
ihe game. It was extremely hard line.,
ior Ladysmith that one of their hacks
should score Ihe third goal for Cum-
oerlund, the hall glancing olf his head
into the net. The Ladysmith forwards
'•nine right back and for a time pressed
the Cumberland defence. During the
last few minutes of thc game Ladysmith scored a good goal, making the
icore 3-2. Tbe whistle blew for time
ihortly after, with the Cumberland
iioys victors of a good game.
Strang. Mathewson and Davles were
ibout the pick of the Irbme team. For'
Cumberland. Milligan, who was about
-lie best man ou the field, played a
magnificent name, being well supported by his wing hall*. Irvine,
O'Donnell, Stewart and Boyd also
played excellent football.
This win places Cumberland well
it the head of the Upper Island
League.

following appeared in tlie Manitoba
Free Press:
"Is this where the Duckyboya are to
he found?" inquired thc visitor opening tlie door ol' a room and looking in.
"Yes," answered the janitor, Mr.
TakisatolT, "come in nnd let me introduce you."
"I want to obtain a little general Information," replied the visitor, "and
shall he glad if you can introduce mc
to an intelligent representative of the
people who have so recently honored
us hy coming to our shores."
"I can introduce you to just the very
man," said Mr. Takisatoff, "and will
call him to you. Here, Mr. Cumnn-
showlt off, a gentleman wants to see
you."
"Good day, Mr. ComansUowitoff,'
uiid the visitor, "1 want lo learn some
:>[ your lirst impressions of this country. And firstly, how do you like the
country, and what do you think of the
prospects of the agriculturists?"
"Well," responded Mr. Comanshow
it off, "it is a little early to say just
yet, but, by and by, when the snowlsofl
and the iceisoff it is to be hoped thai
we shall gelacropolT which will lift q

"Meanwhile," suggested the visitor,
"how about the turnouts in the streets,
our horses, our sleighs, etc.?"
I don't think much of your drosch-
kys," answered Mr. Comnnshowitol'f,
mid, as to your drivers, you should
have seen some of ours. We had a big
whip named Fllkaflyoff. who would
have shown you tlie way round Winnipeg in style."
"Well," said the visitor, "have you
been to a skating rink yet? Have you
seen a good hockey match?"
"Oh," answered Mr. Comanshowitofl",
'they don't do so badly. But you
should have seen our two crack
teanis; they are something like players."
"What was their names?" inquired
the visitor.
"Well," said Mr. Comnnshowitofl',
"on ono side we have Wichlswitch,

with towers in keeping witli the
architectural beauty of the avenue. A
design has been selected from a hundred submitted hy artists competing
for prizes offered by the Fifth Avenue

rise 22 feet above the street. The
lower part will be open and the upper
part, enclosed In glass, will give an
unobstructed view up and down tbe

FRENCH PEOPLE PAYING
MANY HEAVY WAR TAXES
The French people are paying many
unusual taxes as a result of Ihe war,
linds the New York Evening Posl.
The ministry of finance states thai

revenue stamp is ever present on
checks, invoices, promissory notes,
bills of lading, receipts.
It one desires to travel to Nice or
to any other point In France, besides
paying 130 per cent, more for his fare
lhan he would have before the war he
will have to pay 10 per cent, for ti
government tax and a neat Utile Btamp
on his sleeping berth ticket will cot
bim another 10 per cont.
If he desires to send letters from
Nice to his friends in I'nris or ln foreign countries he finds that the cost
of the former will bo 25 centimes Instead of 10. and of the latter, 50 centimes, as compared with 15 before (lie
war. Should a postcard suffice bis
epistolary needs he will pay 20 ce *.t-
imes Instead of 1 sou.

i       THE DUCK HUNTERS
Some love to roum the forest vast
Or climb the mountain high;
I To stalk the wary moose and deer
I And see the puma die;
But give to me a punt and a good 12-
gauge
And a west wind blowing high—
Then bo for the marsh where the flags
grow tall,
And the big black mallards fly.
In   a   comfy   blind   mid   the   waving
sedge.
We can laugh at the storm-swept sky
As we peck the two's and three's as
they come,
While wc let tbo (locks go by.
'Twould bo murder to shoot at a bunch
of ducks
As tbey quietly feed and quack,
So we just sit tight and hug our luck
And pot them with a good Kodak.
Then come to the marsh, rare sport
you'll lind;
Lot others the wild woods roam,
While we are snug in our rush-built
blind
They're a thousand miles from home;
As we lie concealed from tbe eagle's
eye,
O 'tis pleasure without alloy,
To watch a bunch of teal sweep by
Or swing to the lure of decoy.
Then give me a punt and a good refuge
And a right pal by my side,
And  I'll not begrudge   the   big-game
sport,
His dogs and Indian guide.

ROD AND GUN
The Christmas issue of "Rod and
Gun in Canada" is particularly attractive and is replete with many stories
which will appeal to the heart of the
true sportsman. Allen H. Kerr's
"Trout Hunting on the Kenogami nnd
Keniogamesis" as the opening article
will prove a realistic tale, while the
ever popular F. V. Williams' and
Bonnycastle Dale's narratives are of
the usual high standard. The article
by A. F. Wallace entitled "Clam and
Pearl Fish" will undoubtedly be of
vivid interest as well as instructive.
Guns and Ammunition, Along the
Trap-line, and Fishing Notes, contain
several articles valuable to the various readers. Rod and Gun in Canada
is published monthly W. J. Taylor,

hide of any creature In the animal
world.—Owen Sound Advertiser.
IX tiie latter part of 1307 four grave
M disasters occurred in the United,
involving the deatli of 623 men. The
places where these disasters occurred
vere at tlie Manoiigah Mines in Wesl
Virginia, whore 3118 men were killed;
lie Fan- Mines in Pennsylvania, where
1(10 men wore killed; Ihe Naomi Minos
lu Pennsylvania, where 84 men were
'filled, and the Yolaude Mine in Ala-
mma, where 01 were killed, due to the
use of all kinds of explosives without
much regard to the safety accompanying the use of proper explosives, or
proper practices. After these disasters, Investigations took place and in
1910 the Bureau of Mines was created.
11 established a testing station and
here the permissible explosives were
born. There are four classes ol permissible explosives:
1. Ammonium nitrate. ,
2. Hydrated explosives.
3. Organic nitrate explosives.
■1.   Nitroglocut'in explosives.
Amnianium nitrate  is  thu class of
powder used  in  this part   of   B.  C
known as Monobel.   It is a detonating
explosive, to which class the perniis-
sihles belong.
The words "permissible." "Ilaine-
less" or "permitted" are all the same.
The reason why they are called so is
that they are all constituted so that
they will detonate without producing
the extremely high speed given by ordinary explosives, and they have also
been called safety explosives due to
the absence of a large (lame. Monobel
powder, weight for weight, is considerably stronger than 40 per cent, dynamite; bulk for bulk it is 5 to 10 per
cent, weaker. Monobel.powder does
not burn readily, but if ignition takes
place a much larger amount of CO,
or carbon monoxide, is given off than
If properly exploded.
Trust in (jod and Keep Your Powder
Dry."
This permissible explosive is not a
permissible explosive when it gets
damp, or takes up moisture from the
air and undergoes a change. The old
saying, "Trust in God and keep your
powder dry" is still applicable, and
especially to the man working underground.. Practically every miner is
familiar with the method of blasting
coal. He knows that first of all a bole
is bored into the material to be blasted, then into this hole is placed a
quantity of powder. Next the bole is
tamped, then exploded, and thon next
he is enabled to go to the place of the
blasting, where a portion of the coal
ls forced away from the mass and
more or less broken up.
Here are two things to be explained
—first, why does the powder explode;
second, why does it have the effect of
forcing away and breaking up the
coal. We all know that there are certain substances, which when once ignited will under ordinary circumstances burn. These are known as
combustible substances, but before
they will burn the presence of air is
necessary. The reason for this is
found to be in the nature of oxygen,
wliieh gas forms about on-llflh portion
ot tlie air ill volume. But tbe air is
not our only source of oxygen, and it
is a fact that oxygen will support combustion no matter from what source it
is obtained, and wliilo an ordinary
combustible obtains its supply of oxygen from the air, on explosive contains oxygon within itself usually in
Ihe form of a nitrate.
Another fact is that If we take out-
combustible and divide it into particles then intimately mix it wilh its
supply of oxygen, the liner the particles the moro Intimately mixed, then
tlie more rapid will be the combustion; and In these two facts we lind
the reason for the explosion of powder, since all tbe powder used iu coal
mines depends for Its explosive power
upon the union of coiubuslible substances wilh n supply of oxygen, In
sucli a manner that each particle incombustible substance is in contact
o. iili a supply of oxygen, and also the
right proportions of each, so as lo
cause a complete and very rapid combustion which will take the form of
an explosion. *
Don't Tuke n ClintiiT.
Now we wfll turn to our second
question: Why does tbe explosion of
the powder have the effect of forcing
away and breaking up the coal? The
explosive owes its power to tbe expansive action of large volumes ot
gases that are formed during combustion, It is well known that the effect
of beat on gases ls lo cause them tu
expand, and as the heat produced is
enormous, there is a correspondingly
enormous expansion of the gases that
have been formed, and since there Is
no room for expansion a. great pressure Is generated ami brought to bear
upon the surrounding strata, thereby
breaking the coal. Don't forget the
nature of explosives, but remember
that with proper care tbey can he
handled with comparative safety. The
function of an explosive is to explode
and no company will describe any explosive as safe. But explosives can be
used In such a way that accidents are
avoided, and for tlie man who handles
explosives a good thought to carry is
"Don't take a chance," and don't try

BOOTS AND SHOES WILL
BE AT PRE WAR PRICES
 1
American   Shoe   Manufacturer
Tells Trade Just When Prices
Will Be on Pre-War Basis
The P. Mayer Shoe Co. of Milwaukee
haa sent out a circular in whclh they
comment on the prices of boots and
shoes. With few amendments it could
be applied to Canadian conditions.
Anyway it's worth reading. The circular reads:
It is a well known fact that tanners
and most shoe manufacturers have
laken enormous, losses. One tanner
alone lost $6,000,000 last year. Shoe
retailers all over the country are
marking their shoes down to replacement costs. Nevertheless the woods
arc full of amateur economists who
claim that prices of shoes will shortly
return to pre-war levels. But will
they?    Yes. they sure will—
When hard coal is back at $9.00 per
ton;
When railroad fares are back at 2c
per mile;
When house rent ls back at $15 per
month;
When gasoline is back at 10c per
gallon;
When telephones are back at $1
per month;
[   When a square meal Is back at a
quarter;
When farm labor Is back at $25 per
month;
When gas is back at !)0c;
When shaves are hack at 10c;
When street car fares are back at
a nickel;
When money is back at 5 per cent.;
When cookB are back at Ave per
week;
When hair cuats are   back   at   a
When movies are back at a nickel;
When a car-wash is back at a
dollar;
When an Ice-cream is back at a
dime;
When a doctor's call is back at two
bucks;
When a newspaper is back at a
penny!
For thc love of Mike, why expect the
manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer
uf shoes to go the whole route alone?
Haven't we got to work it out together? Well, then, haven't the
manufacturers, wholesalers and retailors of shoes gone much faster and
much farther than the average In reducing prices and making readjustments? We'll say they have. We're
ahead; 'way ahead of the procession.

ETERNAL ENERGY
If I wait, idle, aimless on the shore,
Shall winds blow aught to me?
And Bhall the tide swerve   from   its
surging course
To lift and carry me?
Nay, with the few who face the wind,
I must go forth
And plunge within  the  maelstrom's
urge to find
Life's meaning true and worth.
'Tls truly said that time and tide wait
not,
Subservient to man;
Inherent powers awakened   and   resolved—
Are one with God's great plan.
—Janette Martin.
Not. .Much to Look at, But—
He was to take her for a trip in
his new yacht the next day, and she
iVas questioning him about It.
"How awfully nice of you to name
thc boat after me!" Bhe giggled.
"What is she like?"
—"Well—er," he stammered, "she's
lot much to look at, you know, but
die's very fast!"
