institution is rapidly growing,
is spreading all over the country.
A feature of the work of the Order
is the education and training of the
orphan children of Its members,
medical assistance to members and
their families, and sick benefits and
aid to the widow in the hour of
affliction. Since the beginning of the
war numerous calls have been made
on the Order in this direction, and
ps the great conflict continues further calls will doubtless be made on
the funds of the instituton.

Prepare For
Linen Shower
The members of the Ladies Hospital Guild are preparing for their annual linen shower for the Queen Victoria hospital, to be held at the hospital on the afternoon of Saturday,
April 22nd. Everyone is invited to
help on this occasion by a gift of
linen and to be a guest of the Guild
at afternoon tea. The nurses will be.
only too pleased to show any of the
visitors so desiring over the beautiful hospital building. The hospital
has passed through a very busy winter, being filled to capacity nearly
all the time. This has meant an unusual wear and tear on the linen supply, and this, as everyone knows, even in a private home, is constantly
in need of replenishing. Nearly any
gift of linen will prove most acceptable but after consultation with the
matron these were discovered to be
the most urgent needs—sheets 2. yds.
by72 inches, pillow slips id inches,
oblong dresser covers, tray cloths
and towels. A splenlid idea on which
several might act together would be
to buy a web of factory cotton and
donate it. From this the draw sheetB
are made and it would be an impossibility to have on hand too many of
these sheets. The cotton would be
made up in the hospital under the
matron's direction. The response to
this ajijieal for linen in the past has
always been a most generous one and
it is hoped that this linen shower
will in no way fall short of those of
previous years.

These members seem disposed to
etrike for shorter hours or higher
pay, or both. As a matter of fact
the Opposition members have easier
time? than the ministers. The)'
have every forenoon and all the
half-day to investigate, They have
do department to manage, no Government legislation to prepare, no
■delegations to meet, and are not
responsible for the business of the
Legislature. No one is hurrying
them. They are offered all the time
and opportunity tbey want. Why
then should we htve all tbis whining and complaining? If these
members can discover graft that
has been concealed for want of a
critic they will have so much vindication. If ihey fail, perhaps they
will have tbe grace to confess either
that tbey were mistaken or that
they are incompetent. Rut in thej
meantime it is not worth while to
eend out the story tbat tbey are
weary and that tbeir brain is overwrought.  '

Newton W. Emmons, of Vancouver,
and well known in the Kootenays, is
advocating a customs zinc refinery in

25,00(1 tons of ore to make a refinery
successful, that the ore la in the province and would be forthcoming if
the refinery was here.
Steady progress was being made
with the construction dt the sulphuric
acid department of the Trail Bmelter
—and two or three months or leBs
should see the plant turning out the
product intended. Meanwhile, the
company is buying its sulphuric acid
to operate the refineries.

Tbe following sayings re advertising have been acknowledged axioms
or facts. You cannot deny them. Experience, observation and. experiment
have removed them from the doubtful class to certain.
1. A business r.ot worth advertising is not worth having.
I    2.   A dollar judiciously spent in advertising will always double itself.
2. No man ever went broke by advertising,     but    there are thousands
■ who go into bankruptcy annually because they don't advertise.
4. The suburban merchant who
blames his neighbors for going into
the city is himself responsible for the
5. It is a pity that the non-advertising merchant cannot see the fact
that he is paying the .bills of his advertising competitor.
ti. "It costs money to advertise,"
says the slow coach merchant, but
he forgets that lt costs more to run
a business without advertising.

Probably not many people would
care to experiment personally to test
the edibility of doubtful food products, yet this is just what the staff of
the biological station at St. Andrews
N.B., have been doing. For the past
two or three seasons they have been
trying on their mess tables various
kinds of fish that ordinarily are
thrown away, and in several cases
have found them delicious..
For instance, there is a peculiar
greenish eel-like creature which, because it brings forth its young alive,
has received thc name, "niother-of-
eels." A large specimen may weigh a
couple of j)>Hinds. The biological staff
found that it was white-fleshed and of
splendid flavor und declared it to be
one of the best fish they bad had on
the table. There ure great ijuantities
of mother-of-eels along the Atlantic
coast, yet it is a fish the food value
of which has not been realised at all
Another fish, which is not being utilized in Canada, though, minus the
head it has found its way into thc
fastidious British market, is the woW
fish or sea-cat. Probably its ugliness
predjudices people against it. Yet
those who have eaten it say that it
has a very superior flavour, having
perfectly white flesh, whiter than halibut, flaky and delicious. Wolf-fisu
vary from 15 to 20 pounds in weight.
Great quantities of them are caught
in the Maritime provinces and simply
thrown away, being considered as absolutely of no value.
The angler or goose-fish, another
very ugly fish, which sometimes attains four or five feet in length, is in
the same category. The tail portion,
which is solid flesh, is very good
Minus the head, it also has been placid in recent years on the London
market. It brings a good price and
is regarded as an excellent fish.

In view of the statements made in
parliament and in the press with reference to the export of cocoa to Holland, Denmark and Scandinavia, several of the larger cocoa firms in this
country are hasteninq to disclaim responsibility for tbe > large figures
with I quoted. Cocoa exjiorts in 1W6 have
| been given as 34,520,987 pounds. The
view, of those engaged In the Industry is that a large proportion of
this is raw cocoa, a commodity seldom, if ever, exported by the firms
whose names the public usually associate with the cocoa trade. The
large exporters it was pointed 'out
to the jiress association's representative, are known to the government,
s-ince a license has to be obtained be-
fore the  .- is can be shipped to the
continent.     tt is also easy for those
in touch  with the market to identify

Try if Pure 'Cocoa*
NO need to ask if you want your little girl to
be bonny, plump and rosy-cheeked. Of
course you do! Yet little folks'appetites
are "finicky'"' and sometimes turn from ordinary
foods. That is just the time to use FRY'S Pure
Cocoa. It makes a delicous food beverage that
no child can resist and its rich nourishment is
absorbed by the little body as eagerly as the
flowers drink in the spring rains. All good
grocers sell it, but, of course, remember
"Nothing will do but FRY'S"
