Red Granite Find
Opened On Island
Production Here Will Supplant
Importation of Stone
From Scotland
British Columbia^ will soon be producing Red Granite to meet the de- j
mauds of the building trade lu the
western part of the continent, as a
lesult of the .discovery at Qualicum
Beach, in the Sayward district, of a |
large high grado deposit by Thomas
Kincado and Gordon Ryder.
Up until now all the rod granite
used here has been imported from
Aberdeen, Scotland. Most of the
larger, modern buildings, such as the
Birks and the Dominion Bank buildings in Vancouver, used red granite
for their main columns, lt Is also
used for nionumenlal work.
Discovered While Fishing
Mr. Kineald and Mr. Ilyder were out
fishing last summer when their attention was drawn to the peculiar j
showing on one of the hills hack of
the shore. They investigated and as
a result the deposit which has now
been proved to be eighty acres In ex-1
tent, was opened. Samples were taken,
to Vancouver, where they were tested
and found to be of the highest grade.
The testa also showed tbut the granite ;
takes ou perfect and enduring polish.
Government experts examined tho.
sample^ at the Parliament Buildings
recently and Mr. Kineald and his associates have been given a twenty-one-
year lease of tho property to open it
as a large quarry and ship.

TILE ROl'AL SUCCESSION
TIIK LINK of succession to the British Throne is as
as follows: tl) The Prince of Wales; (2) The Duke
of York; UI) Princess Elizabeth Of York; <4i the
Duke of Gloucester; (5) Prince George; tG) Princess
Mary, Viscountess Lascel.es; (J) Hon. Henry George
Hubert Lascolles; (8) Hon. Gerald David Lascellcs; (9)
The princess Royal, Duchess Dowager of Fife; 110) at?
daughter, Princess Arthur of Connaught, Duchess of Fife;
til) the tatter's only child. Alastair Arthur of Connaught,
commonly called the Karl of Macduff; (12) Princess Maud
of Fife, now Lady Maud Carnegie; (13) Princess Victoria,
sister of King George. Tho foregoing means that If NOS.
1 io L2 inclusive were to die now in the lifetime of King
George, his sister Victoria would bo heiress presumptive! order—the friend of
to the throne, if nos. 1 to 6 inclusive were to die now,
the heir presumptive would be Master Henry G LaBcelles,
■who is not a prince.
tl) Since July 1, 1917, the surname of the British Royal
Family has been Windsor. They are descended ln the
male line from tbe House of Wettln, who were territorial
rulers before surnames came into use. Albert, King of the
Belgians, who is also descended from the House of Wettln,
has not yet adopted a surname. (2) The sons come tlrst
in line of succession. Princess Mary is the third child of
King George, but she would not succeed until her four
brothers and all their descendants had passed away.
Princess Elizabeth of York is now third in line, but if a
brother arrives on the scene, he will be third and she
will be fourth. King Alfonso of Spain Is the only sovereign
of Europe, who was horn a king, six months after his
father's death, in the Interval his five-year-old sister,
Marin, was Queen of Spain. She would have remained
a queen if the addition to tlie family bad been a girl.
Similarly, if Princess Elizabeth of York succeeded to the
throne, she would he displaced if a brother were subse-
quently born —Toronto Star.

that these shops alone do not

various Canadian steel car construction companies. The steel
frames are built at Hamilton and

Spent Night on
Mount Beecher
Two enthusiastic memhers of the
local mountaineering club, Mr. O. S.
Wood (president) and Mr. G. B. Capes,
went up to the cabin on Mount Beecher on Saturday last, returning on Sunday. They found the going very fair
on snowshoes with eight feet of snow
I on the mountain when they arrived
\ at the top. As a result of the snow
they had to tunnel their way to the
door of the cabin by means of a tin
wash basin, which was quite a task
considering the fact that the door was
hung to open out. But there was a
plentiful supply of fuel inside and
they soon had the cabin cosy and warm
and spent a comfortable night. That
night the thermometer registered only
two degrees of frost, which is remarkable at an elevation of 4,000 feet at
this time of year, and the stars were
shining brightly.

"Last Post"
Mr. Frederick Richard Marshall, one
of the original Merville settlers, passed
away at his home on Saturday last. Mr.
Marshall had been poorly for some time
and also, some time ago, had been
badly mauled by a bull which had no
doubt aggravated his trouble. Dr
McKee had been sent out to see him
on Saturday, but shortly after the
doctor left he took a turn for the worse.
Mrs. Marshall rushed across to a
neighbor's house for assistance but
when she returned with Mr, ClifTord,
Mr. Marshall was breathing his lost.
The deceased went overseas with the
47th Battalion with the rank of Company Sergeant-Major and he will be
remembered as having been iu charge
of the parade ai tlie Diamond Jubilee
celebration of Dominion Day hert.
Besides his widow, he leaves a small
son and a step-son.
The funeral, which was semi-mi
itary. was conducted on Tuesday from
the Sutton Undertaking Parlors to St.
Andrew's Anglican Chureh and cemetery for services and Interment, the
Rev. G. L. Bourdlllon officiating and
Mr. Les Moody sounding the Last Post.

was decreed. They now are asking
the government to reconsider the
course of its predecessor and so

On the other hand, what can a government do that is pledged to general

merely to carrying on that Important

Municipal problems as well will be

conference lhe spokesman for the Union will present (he series of resolutions adopted at its 1928 Convention
tlie most important of which recommends re-creation of a Public Utilities
Commission. Discussion hefore the
Cabinet will be supplemented, It Is
promised, by determined and well organized effort on the part of the Union to secure definite action by the
House this Session on the lines of Its
desires—which lines directly cross
those of Consolidated Smelters' subsidiary, the West Koolenay Light and
Power Company, known in British Columbia, and also those of the American Telegraphs aud Telephone Company, known iu British Columbia as
the B. C. Telephone Co., which is admittedly behind thc charted application of the $5,000,00(1 Provincial Telephone Company. That particular
charter application will hear specially
careful study hy lhe Provincial legislators lest they un wittingly set thc
seal of their own approval on the
plans of an organization that conceivably may develop into a dangerous
oppresive monopolistic ogre in years
that are to come.

miracles is not yet at an end was last
week provided in the appearance of
Mr. "Jerry" (Himself) McGeer in the
office of Attorney General  Pooley to
plead   with   that   gentleman   that  he
might   be   permitted   to   contlnuo   to
represent the Province in freight rate
matters, without  money and without
price!   His plea was unsuccessful, but
Mr. Leon Ladner, M.P., who has the
British  Columbia  brief, will work in
amity with his late political antagonist, which may assuage bis grief . . .
Again the prophets have fallen down
In their prognostications, this time as
to Dr. Warnock's successor in the deputy-ministry of Agriculture.   No one
ever suggested the appointee, Mr. J.
B. Munro, former Provinical Agronomist and later editor of Vancouver's
"Farm and Home".   His qualifications
for his new responsibilities are conceded.    He is an O.A.C. graduate of
mark, nnd  with considerable practical experience and he served his apprenticeship on the staff of ihe Canadian Department of Agriculture under
the most capable  Minister  who has
ever been at that Department's head
—the Hon. Dr. S. F. Tolmle.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered by letter. Questions as to diagnosis
and treatment will not be answered.
A Health Review
At the beginning of the year, it is
customary in many fields of human
endeavor, to review the twelve months
which have passed, to take stock, as
it were, and to consider whether or
not the year has been a profitable one.
It is upon the successes and failures
of the past years we base our plans
for the future.
It is, therefore, rather an apropri-
ate time for us to review the health
conditions of our famllle., as they
were during the past year. First of
all, we should consider whether or
not we have taken those steps which
would protect us from certain diseases. Vaccination does prevent
small-pox. Have you allowed yourself or your children to be exposed
to this disease through failure to use
vaccination as a means of protection?
Diptheria can he prevented liy dlu~
iheria immunization, Have you allowed this disease to continue as a
menace to the very lives of your children by your failure to have them
immunized?
Safe water and pure milk are fun
damental needs. Contaminated wa
ter and dirty milk are still the cause
of much sickness and many deaths
Have you seen to it that the water
you and your family drink, and the
milk that you use are pure, or do you
live with the dangers of impure water and milk banging over you?
Have you given attention  to your
| home?    Are your windows screened
to keep out flies   Do the windows open
Ito allow for proper ventilation? Does
the sunshine get into your rooms.
A much larger measure of health is
within the grasp of most of us, but
we must make tbe necessary effort to
seize it. If you delayed last year, if
you were careless in health matters,
start off this year by doing tbe things
you should do in order to avoid cer
tain  diseases  and  to  lead healthier
lives.
You - Yourself
In the proceeding article It is pointed out that the beginning of the year
is, according to custom, a natural
time for stock-taking, and that it
would be a good idea for each family
to devote the time necessary for a
health-stock-taking of its members.
This week, we speak to our readers
about themselves. What we say is
meant for the person who ts reading
this article, not for someone else in
the family. Do you know in what
condition your body is? During tbe
past year, did you go to your doctor
and aak him to give you a health examination, or are you one of those who
wait until tliey are sick before they
think of their doctor? How many of
your friends died during the past year,
who thought, until a short time before they were stricken, that there
was nothing wrong with them.
We do not wish to cause you to
worry about yourself, but we do wish
to make you realize you are not able
to say that, just because you feel
well, there is nothing wrong with you
or with any part of your body. It is
good and desirable to feel well, but
if vou want to keep right on feeling
so, the thing to do is to have yourself
examined and so make sure that there
is uot something gradually developing
which will temporarily put an end
to your feeling well.
Go to jour doctor, not because you
are ill, not because you fear some
.hiden disease, but because you feel
well aud because you want to keep
well. It requires the skill of a physician, tlie knowledge gained by years
of experience and training to detect
changes which are the earliest signs
of disease. It is at this early stage that
good results are secured but treatment
cannot be secured unless the doctor
is given the opportunity to judge of
Its need.
Be a health client of your family
physician, not a patient. Start the
..ear with a health examination, which
is the best insurance for a year's
health and a year's well-being.

Inquiring Guests Add to Wonders of Jasper Park Park
"The equator,** said the youngster,
writing his examination, "la a menagerie lion running around the earth."
Schoolboy howlers are always rich in
humor. But the howlers are not always  made  by  schoolboys.
Last summer a lady came up to the
transportation desk in Jasper Park
Lodge to Inquire about the motor trip
to Mount Edith Cavell and the Angel
Glacier. She was very anxious to
miss nothing ot the wonders ot the
mountains. "When," she asked, "does
the glacier spout?"
Then there was the lady who
thought that the Lodge would be very
pretty when it was finished, when the
walls were plastered and kalsomlned.
That the great peeled logs, well chinked and cunningly knitted together,
were meant to he as they, never entered her consciousness. She knew
nothing of the beauty of mountain
iirchltecture.
The prize, however, goes to the lady who was discussing the wild life
of the park with one of the wardens.
"The goats and the sheep are the same
species, are they not?" she asked innocently.   "Which are the males?''
"Oh, the goats, madam" said the
warden, without batting an eyelash.
CLIFFE STOPS
VICTORIA BATTLER
Varsity Boxer Registers Technical K.O. Over Warnier
in Last Round of Exciting Battle
Harold Cllffe, youthful pugilist from
the University of British Columbia,
and brother of Hoy ClilTe, knew too
much about the boxing game for John
Warnier. of Victoria, and, after he
had floored him for the count of nine
In the last round and on his knees a
few seconds later, Aefereo Baker stopped the bout and lifted Cliffe's hand.
It was the main event of tbe Inter-clty
Simon-pure fistic show, and it was one
of those ding-dong battles In which
there was plenty of claret spilt. Warnier kissed the canvas for no count
In the first round, and as they walked
to their comers both were spitting
blood. The heavy mixing continued
until the fatal moments for Warnier.
Cllffe, standing over six feet,weighed
170, while Warnier tipped the scales
nt 165.
Labor Leader Is Dubbed "Sir
Ramsay" at Jasper Park
Lodge
If they come to bear of this In the
Labour party of Great Britain, there
will be murmurings afresh in the left
wing. It might even haven far-flung
effect in tlie next general election.
When Ramsay MacDonald was In
Canada last summer he was knighted.
Without a sword or cushion, without
kneeling in silken hose and breechers,
but be was knighted. And by a citizen of the United States.
lt happened when the. former Prime
Minister was a guest at Jasper Park
Lodge. The man who brought him
such distinction, a visitor from Cincinnati, was enjoying the rockles at
the same time. He had a movie camera with him aud was having thc fun
of his life catching unsuspecting beaver, bear, golfers and other denizens
of the park. When Mr. MacDonald
appeured with his four daughters the
heart of the man from Ciucinatl leapt
Up. Here was bigger game. A scoop!
When his friends gathered before the
silver screens In their drawing rooms
next winter ami boasted of their summer's trophies ho could well afford
to smile. And when he unwound his
own reels they would all perish of
envy.
The man from ClnclnaLi wangled
an introduction. "Sir Ramsay," said
he, diffidently hut (Irmly, "Sir Ramsay, w.ouhl you mind if I look a Tew
shots of you?"
The deed was done. But tho mnn
was too engrossed to be aware of it.
Mr. MacDonald did nut pale nor offer
repudiation. He merely smiled and
protested that he was no sheik. "I
don*t want to bother you," said the
amateur movie man. "If you and
your daughters just step out of tho
Lodge and stroll down the path along)
tho shore of Lac Beauvert, I'll get
you as you go."
So was Ramsay MacDonald knighted and starred In Uie movies In one
day.
The farmer's best friend is the Family Herald and Weekly Star, Montreal.
It cost only a dollar a year/and the
family circle gets a superb magazine
free.

Former trees now changed to black
stumps i
Mock the beauty-seeker's eye. I ;
For miles the Islnnd Highway papse;,,   '

Brighter than the scarlet sunset,
Shining on the shimmering main.

Full of color, yet not beauty. j;

The New Year
Will hold many pleasant surprises for those who take
advantage of the good things and eliminate the bad.
FOR EXAMPLE:—Just have the wife bake a pan of
golden brown muffins from COMOX WHOLE WHEAT
FLOUR. If you haven't tried them before, you will
certainly get a surprise. It is hard to believe Whole
Wheat Flour can make such delicious bread and
muffins,
Then, loo, they contain "All the good that's in the
wheal," making a natural health food.
Too much starchy foods are a menace to health, and
a change to Whole Wheat Flour is a change yuu'll
enjoy, as well as a contributing factor to your physical
well being.   Ask your physician.
