HOW TO KKF.P COOL
A pluu lor keeping cool which has at
least the attraction ol nnvolty has

altruist in Liverpool and although
the Commissioner has boon so busy
iimt ho has not htd time us yet in
lest it he has punned it along lor wlu.i
it may bo worth. According In Iboiu-
ventor ol this scheme, all that is i.oc-
ossary lor a cool night's r,si, paradoxical as il may sound, I to cover
one's self sufficiently, it is the method ol covering, however, ohirh
counts. For a single bod Iho first ra
ipiiniie is a stock of heavy corn suffi-
.l.i.i in length to reach Iroti the
head to the foot of the bod. This in
pul in position over tbo conti'e ol thi
bed about eighteen inches above ils
surface. From Ihis are susjn'iided
newspapers sewn or pasted logolh'.'r
lalling over Iho edges ol tho bed to
Ihe door forming a sort of tent like
structure. It ia ol course open el
each end and should extend to within about oigbieen inches of the head
Over the newspapers is next spread u
blanket or shoot and the cooling plant
is ready. Ils inventor claims that
any one sleeping under this cover will
Iw kept cool liy tho continuous brsoxe
moving Irnm end lo end caused by Ihe
difference in lomperulure inside and
oulside. On the lace nl it the plan
seems a little fanciful. Hut then there
are plenty ol people who do not know
that water can bo cooled in a dry
climate by pulling in t porout jar
and placing it in Ibe sun. Evaporation does tht rest.

Hudson Bay Railway
Deport as to Timber Along Proposed
Itiiutn Not Very Optlmlstlo   ,.,
There Is probably enough timber
uviiibiblii In liuilil tbe rOHgh I'niiHtriio-
linn wnrk nl the Hudson Uny Railway.
During the summer nl 1010 ths Fnr-
iimI iv llrnii.ili of the departmsnt nl the
Interior hud a party exploring along
a pin 1 inn of the proposed routs nl ths
Hudson liny Railway snd .in tha
words Just i|unt,sl the head o| the
party (lir. ,1. Jl. Dickson, B.H.F., Assistant Inspector nl Forest lleservss),
In his report just publiehed, gives his
impression ol the limber of Hint part
nl tha country.
THE COUNTRY TBAVBRBBD
The party started at The Pas nnd
covered some eight thousand si|lisi'e
mil,' ■ nl territory. Their elplorations
Included the enunlry iir.niii.l Mitishln
lake, the Mitishtn river, the Grass river system, with its numerous lake ss-
pansinns (including Wekusko lake),
I'nkwa (nr I'nkwahigan) lake, Setting
and Split lakes and the Nelson ilvir
system, including Ones and Hipjweak
lul.es, Wintering nnd Landing lakes,
return being made by way ol ths
Minago (or I'ine) river. The district
inspected cnv»r«l mini,, i'ih miles ul Ihe
line nl Ilie proposed railway.
METilOD.OF SURVEY
The method followed was, tn tun
inspection lines at throe to sis mile
intervals. The men worked singly, running the lines by compass, und were
nlil.' lo travel from lour tn sii miles
per day and return In Ihe liiet, In
tliis way n rnpnl r.diniiiiissiincii vim
made, which wns extended by llm .1
ill Held irlasseH.
TIMREH 111.' TIIIt REGION
Through Ihu counlry envered by Ibe
esploralion no timlmr was (nun.i al
uny ilisiniHV buck from Ilia in.in.
'Only a mere (ruction of one per cert,
nf Ilie area surveyed now curries merchantable timber,' the report save.
i-|,iin.■ is, lor the most part, Ilu
only 1 in.l». there which is lurge
enough l,.r saw-limber or railway ties.
The poplar, birch und jack pine are
loo short, spindly, limby und crnpked
lor anything Imi luel and pulpwood.
Practically all tbe (iiinulnck bus l»«'ii
I1II1.1 by insects. 'We did not find two
I11n11l1.il green tamarack above ten
inches in diameter ull summer,' writes
Mr. Dickson.
Tbe I.ilnl number ol lies available
in the districl  traversed is estimated
lit   SOIlie   IWO.OWI ;   ||u.   mm  llllli,,'!      lo
ini- aboul nine ait.l 11 bull million
leet. Por pile limber d.wl tamarack
und Ihe I■,.,■, 1 nl the close grained
black spruce r»u|d be used. The poa
sible supply ol In. I».,.,.| is enormous,
and there will also Is' a large supply
ol pulpwood, I111I much ol the limber
is as yet loo smull even lor pul|iing.
BATH OF GROWTH OF TRIES
The rule of growlli, us far us observed, Is generally decidedly alow.
I'l... 1 spruce lakes, on Ihe uveruge,
one hundred years lo iittuin 11 .lininji-
ler ol four to five Inches, nnd iu the
mm,,' |,,'ii,,,( while spruce grows lo a
diameter ol eigbl lo twelve inches,
and poplar lo eight lo ten indies. 'I
•aw no jackpine sin ml where Ihe trees
average even six inches in .llumets .'
Ilie author says. I'll,, slow lutes ii
growth Lie largely due In Ihe cold
wet soil ol Ihu undrninid muskeg
which coyer so 111111I1 ol the .list.let.
DANOEB FROM FIRE AND
INSECTS
"Hie lire loss und duiiger 1. appul
ling,' to use Mr. Dickson's words.
Two git'ul fires hove nmirrt, uppr, v-
iiniiiili loiiv mul eighty fears ago,
respectively, nnd practically every Curlier ol Ilie region has linn burned over
hy Hies,'. Instances were frc|iieiilly
noted where these DrrS bad leaped
lakes over a mile in width. Pins fre-
■pienlly live in the dry moss ull winter and break out again in spring.
The work ol the , Ares is supplemented by that of the bark leetlea.
Nol only havo these insects killed
practically ail (be lumarnrk, but they
are now at work destroying the scat
lereil patches of mature sprue.,, When
Ilie Incline have finished their work
and killed Ihe trees, 11 strong wind
overthrows these. Finally lightning
ssts fire io the tangle ol debris resulting, and the fire, thus started,
may run over mile oiler mile ol the
country.
Tbe report makde a numler ol suggestions (or Ihe better protection nl
tbe region Irom fire, but Ihe district
fS so extensive and practically uninhabited Ibal, if a. fire starts, the
chances ol controlling It, evsn wilh
a good ranger system, are not stall
certain. An interesting point noted is
that the Indians ol the region are
much mors careful with Are than the
wbfU men.
Brief remarks ol much interest ars
made with regard to the topography,'
soil, vegetation and climate ol the
region, lie agricultural possibilitiw,
mineral resources, Ash, gsssa and fur
animals snd other topics,

is vory impsrfsettly realized by the public-
Tho li.'i.lih aiiih.triiii'u of Hew

to the distribution of the germs by
Dies, But, serious as this mul far is
it is n| vastly less importance than

year il proper precautions were taken
lo prevent Ihe breeding ol flies.
In viow of these facts it (s not
surprising that some communities
should have begun crusades against
tho fly pest. People in many parts
ol Iho country are beginning lo wake
up lo Ihe fact that the inseot is not
merely a nuisance, hut a menace to
health end lite.
A large poster sheet was issued recently by the slate board nl heaPh
of Florida, intended lor wide distribution and to he looked up in all
public places, tho printed inlnrmatinn
nn it lieing rendered more impressive
hy a vividly drawn series ol pictures
showing Aies winging their way direct

so prevalent st that tims nf the year
because Jt is then that files are moot

It would be incorrect to suppose
