It is said that during the past
ten years the Rand has produced
more gold than was produced by
the entire world in the first half
of the nineteenth century, and
that its production today is approximately two-fifths of the total output of the world.
By converting cellulose, one of
the elements of wood, into a
gelatinous material, known as
viscose, a wide field is opened up
for the utilization of wood waste,
and a new line of products, vary
ing from sausage casings to tapestry, is added to the already
lengthy list.
Between the years 1840 and
1860 the El Cobre copper mines
of Cuba claimed the world's record production. The mines, still
Cuba's greatest producers, were
dicovered in 1520. They are located near Santiago de Cuba and
employ about 2ooo men, the majority of whom are Spaniards.
No smelting is done on the island.

Our climate is not such

Saxon—why, during the hot*
weather of summer weshould
not resort to healthful: and
comfortable articles,^ which
have been already-wisely a-
dopted for young children.
But the i various varieties of
the; boot and shoe are those
which concern us in any enquiry as to the shoeing of.

doubt that the-price.of these,

quantities having been, demanded for various kinds of
this, raw material.
The question-has been ask*
ed: Will rubier or., rubber,
compositon take the place of
leather, eventually,, in.shoe
manufacture? Progress in
that direction is. suggested
by the placing on the market of composition soles in
which rubber forms an important part. It is claimed
that these soles will outwear
leather,, and. are superior in
waterproof qualities.- Tendency both; in pricesand pro:
duction are bringing * rubber
and leather much closer to-
gether-that is, placing them
on a more equal basis of
source and supply. While
the supply of leather has
been diminishing the production of rubber has jumped
to an immense degree. It is
significant that while the
price of leather has been persistently going up the of raw
rubber in London today is
practically the same as it was
before the outbreak of war.
The only solution of this puzzle is the vast increase in the
sources of supply. As soon
as production reaches a big
surplus, prices will work towards lower levels, and the

up the problem of turning it

roaring rivers, of valleys brilliant with
fiowers. of sleeping lakes of -ever-
changing colors.
With a guide, a park and a saddle
pony, a supnlv of fool and a tent or
two. we leave Panff or Field and face
the alluring trail -and the untrodden
▼ales. MMes and years behind pre
cities 'and streets aid trains and
creditor* and cirv pf-n'^rn p.nd even

over as many kinds of paths as you
can count on fngers and toes, tbe first
fsmn is struck and none too soon, for
the fenderfoot who hasn't been in the

rn Ideni snot a* If by instinct—a clean
I bit of forest, a high and dry level area,
a nenr-by stream, a pasture run for
the ponies and firewood for the burn-
ling pile.
Then one enters upon the tented life

.litMe tent to the world of hill*, but it
is Home, f^r the time.   No sooner is ft
'pe^irpd down than Bill has by magic

Could a cannibal be greedier than we*

well-being as we flre-w'brship. Mea

the singing, classic and otherwise, and
such good fellowship as Is rare!
So to bed. Three in a row. The

No, we didn't sleeo much the first

wait for the other nights. Obliv'oj
waits on the campers until the morn*

a complete awakening. And what a

Germany's great object in this
war was to get a big, firm hold
on the Near East. Constantinople was to be an "adjunct" of
Berlin, along with Vienna and
Sofia, and perhaps Bucharest and
Athens. That grip is gradually
being loosened, though Germany
is clutching at the Balkans for
dear life.
Mother (angrily)—Why didn't you come
when I called you the first time?"
Willie. " 'Cause I didn't hear you till
you called the third time."
Mother. "Now how could you know it
was the third time unless you heard the
other two?"
Willie. "Easy enough, ma. I knew it
was the third time 'cause you sounded so
mad." ,-
