A large majority of the unsold
bonds, in fact all of last year'B, were

4 1-2 per cent, and it has becn openly

bring Hurnaby much more than 80 for

The decision states further that the

people pour Into Canada iu one year,
and by far the larger part of thetn
will go wipi of Winnipeg, It Is not to

they prepared to create situations on

why 10,000 people should remain Idle
It may be bad for these people when

yet uii abundance of land to be had.
and It Is especially the land worker
who Is wanted, (liven more agriculturists. Other departments of work

"I'r!rr-u�� Jack," the pilot dolphin of
the French Pais nnd Its vicinity, is
probably the most notable creature of
its kind in the world. His remarkable
habit, continued through more than
twenty years, of daily and nightly
meeting steamcra passing through si
certain part nT -Clooli strait, dividing

a visitor to New Zealand makes a trie
across the strait from Wellington Cltj
to Nelson for the express purpese of
seeing and in many eases photographing -"l-V-h-mis Jack" playing like
a sea go' al t*,e Btcatm>r'n bows.
Strange Sea Creature.
All sort** of romantic yarns have
been written Tiy imaginative travelers
about thla strange sea creature who
lives alone at the head of 1'clorus
Sound and spends his days and nights,
or a good part or them, darting ahead
of and anHind the steamers that pass
that way. Some people have even
gone to the trouble of inventing Maori
legens of their own about him. If they
only knew it, a wealth of bona fide
Maori folklore surrounds old "Jack."
"Prlorus Jack's" sex is uncertain,
but everyone sems to lalte it for
granted that he is a "he." So "ho"
let it ho. He is a dolphin of a bluish-
white color, and with irregular brown
edges scratch-like line covering the
upper surface ol his body, liis flippers
are dark in hoc, muttled wllh grey.
lie Is ahotit fourteen feet In length,
as nearly as can he Judged, for hn

much for "Jack's" personal appearance.

in-comieil of the New Zealand government, with th" express-, object tif
preserving "Jack" from the gim and
harpoons of life-deftroylng humans.
For a ions time "Jack's" acUi"l species w-as in doubt, Sometimes he was
described as a white whale, sometimes
as a white shr.rl;. ltut there is nothing of the Shark ahout the blithesome dolphin of the Peloruti-mouth.

of tlieir extended preliminary survey-
he aald:
"Everywhere we found that thc
prosperity of rural communttlea was
due to a Judicious combination of
state assistance, mostly educational
in Its character with organized self
help, the latter predominating. Everywhere it was recognized that what a
farming 'community, by Intelligent
combination, could do for themselves
waa immeaaureably more Important
than what tho beat of governments
could do for them. Everywhere effect waB given to this principle
through the co-operative system.
Farmers in Societies
"Today the Irish farmers, following the teaching of continental experience, are learning to combine together to purchase everything that
they require lu their Industry, to
manuljacture butter and bacon; to
dlapoae of their produce: to obtain
working capital on favorable terma,
and, in short, to do In combination
everything which can be more effectively and economically done In thla
way than In the antiquated hyperln-
dtvlduallatlc way which the Anglo-
Saxon farmer still pursues."
Under the vigorous leadership of
farmers like Sir Horace Plunkett, 100,-
000 Irish farmera are organized today Into more than 900 co-operative
societies, and are doing an annual
business of about 116,000,000.

state fod inspector, who yesterday
concluded an inspection of 155 grocery stores, meat and flsh markets,
bakeries and butter stores In Spokane,

of goods. Practically all of the wrappers contained meats and were under
