After a moraeat's pause, Brewster  contlnued: "'Say, if you really are Sergeant Seymour, who was the uniformed bird that came to Gold as Bart Caswell?"  "Rich���������for them." he supplied.

Complications foreseen  were responsible.  He improvised a flimsy fastening to  replace the lock he had broken, and  ; pinned over the chest crack a sheet ol  | paper on' winch he had written, "Ofll-  | ciaiiy Sealed, R. Seymour.

"Told you Caswell was a crook/'  whined Karmack. "No 5 ellow legs  would have let himself be caught the  way I got him that day up hea-e oa the  creek."  Seymour watted for Moira to speak.

"The first step," he *.old her, "is tc  rig up some sort of an M. P. seal for  that treasure chest I broke open."  Without ceremony, the sergeant lifeed Karmack to his feet and ushered  him to-the left-hand cot.

For hip own sails fact ion, as well  hers, he outlined the plot against- the  Indians    as    he    snow    saw    it.    Phil  Brewster, he believed; had recogaiized  platinum  in  the  frog-gold   which   the  Slwashes"      were      dis.caaa*dihg.      The  freighter had  sent  back to  Montreal  for    Kluger    to     direct  the  haa'veist.  Knowing nt least,  something of Kar-  rnack's plight, Kluger had brought the  AririislJLco murderer with him as aai assistant and had posc-d him as a half-  breed as part of the disguise. Whether  or not the latter knew that the father  of the youth he had canned to be slain  in  the Arctic lived in  the 'inaaaiediate  viciailty   of   the   platinum   bed   was a  question.      At  aaav j'ate,  the criminal  probably figured that, he would, be safer in a sealed BriU-'.h Columbia canon  than In the cafes of the city that lately has become the    gayest   jn    North  America.

The crowd remembered that he was  a member of the Force, even if he had  mojnentarily forgotten that fact. They  clamored about him for details of the  crime clean-up, few of which they  would hear from him.;- There was  Deputy Hardley to be put straight  about the' B. C. X. hold-up: and Maya.

But as the country has  developed, as region upon region has  opened up and peopled, as the problem of food distribution have become  more and more complicated, and as  the uses of ice and refrigeration have  become in*fin*te'y more numerous, i-he  waterways   and -the   streams   of   the  the freezing of their apparatus that  they determined to work intensively in  this new suggested field, and finally  succeeded in developing a basic method of freezing the gas into snow and  pressing it into a substance closely resembling ice, hence, its name���������Presl  Air Ice. This new ice has a critical  temper-ature of 114 degrees below zero  Fahrenheit, as compared,with a critical temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit for practically all natural and  manufactured ice.  Prcsfc air ice is absolutely molsture-  less, revertine-^to gas upon evapora-l  tion. It is the only absolutely sterile  atmosphere yet discovered to science,  and as no bactea*ia or other germ life.  can exist under its influence it constitutes beyond question the most effir  country    have ' become   for the most j cient preservative of    foodstuffs    yet  part too polluted for their ice to be  used for human consumption, and we  have had to resort increasingly to the  artificial product, so that last year out  of a total consumption for the-United  States and Canada, of seventy million  tons, more than half of the total was  artificially pa*oduced. And "to produce  this forty million tons xhe^ combined activities of six thousand "ice plants  of varying capacity were necessary.  First successfully demonstrated  more than a century ago, artificial refrigeration did not come into general  use until approximately forty years  ago, while mechanical refrigeration is  only about thirty years old. Since  that time, however", the production of  Sec by artificial means has become universal, especially on this continent  -where it is an. indespensable necessity  of the national life. ,  Prest air ice. which, as we have!  stated, is destined to revolutionize the  refrigerating industry, is the joint discovery of two eminent scientists, Walter S. Josephson and Thomas B. Slate,  and is the culmination on the part of  these two men of many years of  patient and diligent research, during  which time a veritable fortune has  beeu expended. But at last it can be  said without fear of conta-adicfion that  the scientists have demonstrated conclusively that this new form of refrigeration is a real commercial success.  Prest air ice is the ultimate result  of a myriad of experiments that, have  been made "by its inventors and the  utilization of liquid carbon dioxide in  the realm of power. Messrs. Joseph-  son and Slate found that carbon  dioxide, thoroughly prepared and properly treated, when ; compressed to  liquid form, would accomplish- such  woi-K as jacking up automobiles and  many others useful functions -; where  power is portable and compact form  was required, and from this knowledge they evolved an industry���������the  Prest Air Corporation���������that is said to  be one of the "fastest growing developments in  the laud. **  In their experiments, the Inventors  encountered so much   difficulty   from  evolved. -Scientists of the Mellon Institute, indeed, have declared, after  elaborate expei-imentation, that this,  gas is competent to destroy even the  germ of'typhoid, and that it possesses  unquestioned powers- for the correction of infection.

' 3D24  refrigeration lies in the fact that with  its employment it will be possible to  fix and maintain any desired temperature from 114 degrees below "zero Fahrenheit to 78 d3giees above, and this  wholly ii*respective of outside temperature.       Thus, it  will be  possible to  ship a carload of fish from seaboard  to an interior point with a predetermined temperature in absolute assurance that There will be no deviation of  temperature throughout the journey.    '  One of the chief fields for this revolutionary   discovery    in    refrigeration  will lie in the sphere of transportation.  Last year the railroads of the United  States  and   Canada  consumed  nearly  fifteen million tons of ice in refrigerating their cars.-which at a basic price  of four dollars a ton. at a plant would  mean the primary" refrigerating charge  of at least sixty million dollars annually.      So serious, indeed, as this problem become to the  common  carriers  that many of them have deemed it advisable to build their own refrigerating  plants, and many more ai*e contemplating similar action.  Let us visualise for a'moment what  the applicarion~of prest air refrigeration will mean to the railroads of this  continent. Under the existing conditions, 20 per cent, of the entire cixr  space is _��������� required for -i-bunkering -of  the ice, while every refrigerated car  must be re-iced once every twenty-  four to forty-eight hours, thus a transcontinental fruit train, from Califoania  to New- York reqa-lres six distinct re-  icings, and a similar car containing  frozen products such as fish, would  have to be re-iced at least twelve  times. ���������_  The Prest air system, however,  would eliminate entirely the need of  bunker space, as the entire'- car will  be cooled from four containers placed  in the corners and occupying none of  the cargo space, while the lasting  qualities of the ice itself aa*e so much  greater that it will be possible for a  car to cross the continent, without having to be re-iced at all; in fact, it has  been demonslavxted that a car under  this system can be kept in perfect  'condition wilhout re-icing for fourteen  days.  Prest air refrigeration will _mcnn a  saving of anillions of dollars In the nn-  nuaf ice bill of the' railroads, hut that  saving will be sannll indeed in comparison with the untold aaaillions of  dollars that should be conserved to the,  railroads through the great increase  cargo capacity and the elimination of  the huge irahsporUilloai.. charges on  the millions of ions of water loo that  have to be carried aandov existing conditions. Nor cnai one exaggerate the  tremendous benefits that will accrue  to the rralla-onds and to tho counta-y  through the bringing of tho market  nearer to the source of supply by so  effectively rcduclaag tho running timo  of (he average refrlgea'tatov trr.ins.

The   review says:  "Milk may  be   produced,   manufactured into butter and sold to a housewife within a radius of ten miles, but  ! the price of that butter is deteranined  " by  coEditlons in  the  foil1'' corners  of  the world.

Whether it coanes  from New Zealand or Nova Scotia,  Denmark, Wiscoaasin or. California, it  is simply butter when it" reaches the  markets of New York," Chicago and  San Francisco, and the price in all  cities, with due allowance for slight  freight rate differentials, are practically the same.  "During-1923 average prices of dairy  products througlioHt the covn'ry increased���������nutter 17 per cent., cheese  13 per cent., condensed milk 30 per"  cent., and marketed milk 13 per cent."

B.C., FRIDAY, JAN. 2  CoL Fred Lister's  Sessional Effort  Victoria, Jan. 14.��������� Colonel Lister of Creston on Thursday afternoon made a characteristic attack  on the administration of the liberal government. He held the  House to close attention for an  hour, ���������while he reviewed their poll-j  cies.  Paying close attention to the  hinterland, where his electorate is, (  Colonel liisie-r spoke ox valuable"  public moneys spent in attracting  tourists, while the settlers' roads  were neglected.  He   quoted figures concerning  the huge volume of fruit imported  mas, when, at the demand of the  Premier, he gave the name of a  man, who, as the road foreman, he  said, was levying toil on employees, sud "was being driven with his  wife to the picture show at the  public expense. -*���������  Odium's Retirement  Discussing Brig.-Gen. Odium's  announeexneiit that he intended to  retire from the Legislature after  only three years' experience of itV  Colonel Lister said he could take  but two inferences from this action on the part of a man that was  yet young, besides being clever  and ambitious���������he was not satisfied with the policy of the Liberal  party which he was supporting,  or he already could see the -writing on the wall, and wished to retire gracefully.  Colonel Lister could not, he  said, understand' the objection  raised b*0- Q-en. Odium to the Pro-  | posed compulsory co-operati6n  measure? to relieve the fruit growers of British Colombia. He would  remind him that, when he was on  VlttxiUg^  JLTi   past ten years, and said the volume showed no evidence of declining, white fruit growers in the  province were told last season  that they should not pick their  fruit as it was not worth the cost  of picking, apart from the cost of  production. The panacea for the  fruit growers' ills lay not in compulsory, eo-operation ��������� which he  would support as a good step���������but  in action by Ottawa, which could  by a stroke of the pen, afford protection to the industry, and create  happiness and prosperity where  depression stalked to-day.  There were moments of excitement while Colonel Lister told of  men. friends of the Liberal government, he said, who were earning public moneys and not rendering service that public servants"  should render to their province.  As they had given service to the  "cause," the government could  not fire them. At least the Liberal  executive had tried, but had failed, he said.  The excitement came to a cli-  CARNIVAL  DAZZLING  DELIGHTFUL  WEEK OF FUN  FEB. 5 to 12  Ski-ing  Ski-joring  Sleighing  Snowshoeing  Tobogganing  I  Packing  Skating  Hockey  ...Curling  Doncing  SWIMMING  in the Warm Sulphur Pool  Fun for Young and Old  EXCURSION  Tickets on Sii!o  Feb. 4th to 12th  froan tall points  in Alberta and  Ba-itlsb  Colajittbitt. ��������� Be**'ela!oke-  Koobenay Landing aand East..

The reference to t-be 'well known  decision of General Odium, prohibiting the use of rum by the  troops under his command, caused  some amusement in the house.  Up To Ottawa  The emancipation of the fruit  growers of British Columbia from  the industrial depression that surrounded them lay, not in the proposed compulsion law, said CoL  Lister, but in the hands _ of the  Liberal government at Ottawa, in  legislating to protect them against  the importation from the United  States of immense volumes of  fruit of the kinds that were produced in British Columbia.  In support of this he quoted figures regarding the importation of  fruit in British Columbia during  the last five years. In 1911 there  were imported 29,500,000 pounds  of apples, and in 1926, 23,5Q0,O00  pounds. Of apricots, nectarines,  quinces and pears, the import in  1926 was 23,000,000 lbs., whieh  was double the import of 1911, although the province produced  pears and apricots in large quantities but were told last season  not to pick them as they were not  worth the cost .of picking, apart  from the cost of production. The  same proportion of the growth' of  the import trade was illustrated  in the figures in regard to plums.  Criticizes Foreman  Turning to roads in the interior.  Colonel Lister said that in travelling through the country, the fact  was evident that everybody carrying out services there had done  some service to the Liberal party.  Government members���������No, no.  Mr. A. D. Paterson, Delta-���������It is  the other way.  Colonel Lister���������I know it is different.  Proceeding, he quoted a specific  case of a foreman in the Creston  district.  "This man," said Colonel Lister, "has three teams working on  the road, and his wife runs the  cook camp. He draws the cheque  for the teaina. Men employed by  him, working on another road,  boarded themselves, but he charged them $1.50 a day each for the  cook camp."'  Replying to an interjection by  the minister of works, Col. Lister  said he was prepared to give him  tho man's name Tho Liberal executive in Nelson, tho Premier's  own electorate, tried to firo him,  but he told them thoy could not  firo him, and ho ia thore yet.  "Anothor maw, whoso pay  cheque comes from the worlcH department, earns his money driving the foreman and Ins wife to  the picture show in his car," said  Colonel Lister.  "That is not correct," said the  minister. _  Premier Oliver���������I notice he lias  not given the name yet.  Colonel Lister���������I will give the  -name'since the Premier demands  it, although I had intended giving  it to the minister of works. He is  Arehie Bremner of Salmo."'  Mr. B. H.

He referred to a road the member for Bossland-Trail had been  advocating for a long time. A  good surveyor was sent up and  laid out a good road, indicating  where culverts should be. The  road construction authorities said  he did not know his business, and  refused to put the culverts where  he had indicated. Along came a  storm and freshet, and the road  was washed away at one ox the  spots. After a loss of much publie  money t;he culvert was constructed in the original place.  Among other instances he quoted the government going to a  storekeeper to get bread for fire-  fighting gangs, when they could  go direct to a, baker and save the  discount the grocer 'pulled down'  although he never saw the bread.  Much public money was frittered  away in the transport of gasoline  by hired auto, when it could go Isy  team and effect a big saving of  cost.

"Bk* fruawe  Of The Rsmcli  A Story of Romance and Adventure  of Western Pioneer Days  ...:��������� by.���������  ALEXANDER D. M.cLEOD  <-PuMish-ed by Special Arrangement  -with th.e Author)  (Coniinued)  CHAPTER V.  One    ot*    the    strangest features of  western  pioneer  life  on  the  prairies  -was the rapidity with which news of  striking    significance   travelled    from  ^.no c?t-*o vsci*--- settled coiiixnttT-iitv to **m~  other, and -was    disseminated    among  the homesteaders and ranchers in. remote sections  of  the  lonely prairies.  With no nuore i*aptd means    of    communication than the rider of a sturdy  broncho or Indian pony, ridden by a  chance  passerby,  the   news was   left  here and there along the trail as he  passed  on vhis  way.       From hian. the  news was passed on among the scattered   neighbors   with    an     effieiency  that was almost uncanny and weia*dly  suggestive of telepathy.  Remote   -as    the   Fraser a-anch was!  from homesteader or rancher neighbor .  ���������the  nearest in any  direction aside!  froan the Indian reserve, being twenty ]  miles  away���������the  homesteader on  the j  prairie, the rancher on the hills, north,'  south and east of the anountains, soane (  of them-forty miles away, were gener- j  ally    informed,    within     twenty - four j  hours of tlae abduction of Mary Fraser j  by  "horse rustlea*s."       Those  posses-  * sing the lu-Riary of horses, only lacking  leadership, were willing  and anxious  to start off in a well-artaaed posse in  pursuit of the bandits.      At gathering  points here anu there throughout the  communities,'     they      assembled      in  gi*o\aps     to     discuss     the     situation.  Through   lack   of   leadership,   definite  action was  deferred,  especially  since  1hr?  cooler  heads  trusted  to  the  efficiency of t'he   North   West   Mounted  Police in dealing with the adaninistra-  tlon of law and order.  Accordingly    when    the  news  was  brought to one of these gatherings by  tho two visitoa-s froan the Fraser ranch  on   their   return  hoano,   that  the   girl!  was a-escued by tne stranger, MacRae, I  and her father,   and,    when    it    was  learned  that they had  not only  succeeded in a-ecoverang the stolen horses,  but had also taken away in the night  time, while  they    were    asleep,    tlae  horses or the outlaws theanselves, their  enthusiasm    broke    all    bounds.      So  elated were  they that    thoy    decided  there and  then to ro tlae next night  in a body, woaaaen and all, and  celebrate the  event, at,  tlae  Fraser hoane.  The chief mode of traiasporlutkm possessed bv most of tho people worn the  patient and slow plodding ox ������������������ tenants.  To ovea*come these    ilisndvsintngeB    it.  was sara-nnged that all who had horses  woaald   lake   ihefr  wagons,  and   place  nt    the    disposal ol' their loss favoured uoighborH thlH niol-e affective means  of (ravelling.      Thus if won larranRPcl  sn Hint nil who could might bo eti\bled  lu f-ajjoy the event,  At. tho Fa-.tf-.r-r homo, while thoy  know that tho nown or tho l-ldn-ipptng  and tho timoly roscuo of their daugh  ter had spread    among    the    distant  neighbors, they were not aware of the  person*?..!: interest the people had ^tals-  en in the event.     Still less were they  aware    of   the extensive preparations  that were being made by them for the  Jubilation    of    the    earning    evening,  While they anticipated that, they might  have some visitors, as vaguely hinted  by the young men who had been their  guests: the previous evening, they did  not concern themselves with pi*epara-  tions for the    reception    of -a    large  crowd, the size of which, they had not  anticipated.       Mrs.   Fraser,   however,  always a good provider, had early that  morning   a   large   baking   well  underway  to   liave  her  larder  replenished  with many delicacies long   before   the  weary worn members of the family and  guest were called to a late breakfast.  j With, the help of Winona she had per*-.  I formed-   all    the    morning household  duties, as well as having done the out-  I side chores, without disturbing those,  j who. owing to their nerve-racking ex-  1 periences, were greatly in need of this  , long morning rest.  1     Refreshed after a long sleep with ail  I signs of weariness   gone,  Mary,  Ronald and~Mr. Fraser arose, late, partook 1 former  DANDRUFF  Mina'd'b   .apiilk-cl  AVi-ik     vf- ni'-,,'ii!1,  utopH hair Iroiti  four  timo!?   at  (IfltMlVllff      nttI  falling out.  of a   hearty  breakfast  of bacon  eggs and delicious  toast,  made  from  Mrs.    Fraser's    own    light and flaky  home-made   bread.     This    fare   was  pai'ticularly relished by Ronald as an.  enjoyable change from the rations of  hard tack which had pi*actically been  the only bread he had fared on since  he had enlisted four years before. Hi^  jokes ,about   "pork,   beans   and   hard  tack"    amused    both    the father and  daughter as the breakfast  proceeded.  His    reminiscences    of the rebellion  campaign  interested  them    and    the  humor   of   thean afforded considerable  amusement.     Before   break fast   was  over  Mary extracted  a promise  from  him    that    on    some other occasion,  when they had more time and leisure,  he would give her a more detailed account of the interesting events of the [  1 caanpaign.     After breakfast, acting on  a  proposal  from  Mr.  Fraser,  Ronald  accoanpanied him to. the corral to look  after the horses and let them out to  graze, while Ma-"y. went to assist her  mother in the house woi*hrf  It was late afternoon when Ronald,  returning from.; accompanying Mr,  Fraser on a round of hts ranch, led  his horse to the stable and discovered Sergt. Melvih's Biorse in one of the  stalls and hts saddle hanging on a pe"fe  nearby. Ronald thought that, ob  viously and with intent, he nuide a  hasty return froan his pursuit, of the  outlaws. From Ronald's standpoint  he was not a welcome-visitor to the  Fraser ranch at the present time. He  looked tapon his arrival with a certain  sense of reseaitanent in view of the  inthnaCe friendship already existing  between, these two people. While as  yet he regarded Mi- own chances of  winaiing Miss Fi'svpser's special favor  with only a slight degree of assurance, he resented the dominating personality or tlae sergenjat thus stepping  in between tliena to monopolize her  chief attention", J I. nppeaa*ed to hian  that his attentions to Miss Fraaei*  were of a serious nature, but he wns  by no means satisfied- ais to whether  those feelings were reciprocated by  her. Unill he wit a'fully fissured, that  such was the case lie whh ajot in the  mood to leave an open field to his accomplished rival. Thus assuming an  air of sell'-assuraanee he accompanied  his host into the house, and diplomatically extended a cordial greeting to  the sergeant. With veiled irony he  complimented him on his rapid work  In a'ainning down the outlaws. ���������  The nhaiblo.'.v.ittt'Ml  Rea'gpnnt*"*sonHlnt?  tho note of Irony in tho compliment,  lopliid:   "The   sna*ate   lll-laick   followed  us  ha  tho  pua-sult.  oil the  outlaws as  pui'Httod  uh  when   wo   failed  to have  tho    honor   of   resculnp; Miss Frnsor  "I'j-oiii   their  elaaleluifci.

A little more weight applied to that "billy" ot" yours would  have done good service to Uncle Sam  as well as to the Canadian authorities."  ���������"What was done to the captured  anen?" asked Ronald. .-,  ��������� "They wea*e sununaa-ily/fried befoa*e  the Police Inspector at Poi-tal last  night, aaid, pleading gaaiity to the  -charge of horse stealing, they were  each given three years penal servitude.    .

Sir John pointed out.  The Rotlianasted workers placed this  observation on & ^quantitative basis,  however, and they -fosupd that crops  were actually diminished when untreated straw waVploughed into the  ground. "This is because the soil  organisms decompose the straw, but  in order to accomplish the breakdown,  they absorb plane food, thereby rob-  bing the grain of some of its nourishment," the scientist explained. "The  bacteria absorb nitrates in particular.  Appreciation of this fact suggested a  solution of the* difficulty. The.  microbes are fed their nitrogen sep-  - arately, they break up the straw, free-  ***' ing 1he odginal humus, and' this can  then be put back into the ground."  The procedure adopted consists In  building stacks by, mixing with, each  ton of straw a few potirids of sulphate  of ammonia, relatively Inexpensive,  and calcium cubonale. cheaply*secured as powdered' limestone, maa'ble or  cfiallc. , The., ammonia supplies the  nitrogen iactori, and the .carbonate  . prevents 'the mixture; be coiningso acid  .     that tho bacteria "will not w.ork.
