Senior B Women, last year's Kootenay  champions,' registered a decisive win  against the visitors, 25-15, while the  Senior B men took a closer checking game  by the narrow margin of 3 points  The first score in the women's game  came right after the opening whistle  when Nell Payne passed to Edith Swain  from the tip-o . Howe countered with  with a score forKimberley, only to have  Creston again take the lead with another  basket by Swain. Kimberley never succeeded in tying the score again, although  a rally in the third quarter brought them  very dangerously close. The large floor  undoubtedly proved a handicap to the  mining town misses, hut they never developed the smooth combination of the  Kootenay champs.

Josephus says of this  door that it was adorned in a more  costly manner, having much richer  and thicker plates of silver and gold  than the others. The man had been  lame from birth, and was daily carried to that spot to beg. He must  have been well known to all in Jerusalem, "he was part of the city landscape, the people knew him as they  knew the carved columns of the  temple doorway."  The man was not expecting alms  from every'worshipper, and probably  glanced indifferently at Peter and  John. To rivet his attention upon  them and arouse his expectations,  Peter said to him, ''*Look on us." The  beggar gave heed to them. Then  said Peter, "Silver and gold have I  none."  Instead of silver and gold the man  needed strong limbs that he might  earn ius own. living". True charity  helps men to help themselves. Peter  had no money, but he had a look of  sympathy a word of hope, and he  quickly added, "But what I have, that  give I to thee." You recall the story  told by Turgenieff of the Russian who  put his hands in his pockets and  found nothing there, and then said to  the beggar before him, "I am sorry,  brother; X have nothing with me,  brother." And the beggar, touched  by the word "brother," said, "That,  too, was a gift, brother."  "In thc name [by the power] of  Jesus of Nazareth, wallc." Peter then  took the man by the right hand and  raised him up. That was the secret  of the cure. "It was human sympathy and human helpfulness cooperating with divine grace. The  power of Cod just then was operating thi-ough Peter's strong right  arm."  Immediately tho man's feet and  ankle-bones received strength. The  Greek words used here for ankle-  bones are said to bo those which a  doctor would use in describing a  patient, nnd are ono of the minute  proofs that Luko tho physician was  the writer of Tlio Acts.

That summary included Joe Carr,  ���������Frank Crewe, the Hour-glass, Dustin,  Kane (whom he knew not) and ...  Edith! He grinned a little as he  realized that she was not to be  judged by any ordinary standards.  Yet  ...  "The dirty hound.   .   .   . He wants  to "Starry her.   .   .   ."  That   appealed   to   his   sense    of  humor and he chuckled.  "To be sensible . . . If I can . . .  How can I blame another man for  wantin* to do what I want to do myself? Dog-gone it! It makes me  tired. I've spread my rope from  Canada to Mexico and now I've come  to the end of the trail. . . ." Suddenly he knew that, if Edith Carr  was at the end of that trail to .welcome him, he wanted no other trail.  "All the same that man Dustin's  a dirty hound," he muttered. "Now  to try to find out what I want. . .  Here's Seco.   ..."  Seco was an ordinary cow-town  with a courthouse in the middle of a  square from which the rest of the  town radiated. He parked ?n front  of a small frame building that bore  the sign:  SECO  COURIER  Evan Jameson, Editor and Prop.  "If any information is to be had  it ought to be in a newspaper office,"  he muttered. 'Tf he hasn't got an  encyclopedia I don't know who wiil  have one."

"Have you got an encyclopedia in  the office and if so, will you let me  consult it?"  "Over on the shelf yonder," said  Jameson.     "Help   yourself."

Stone  perched on the - desk and rolled a  cigarette. "Maybe you can help rs������e,  Mr. Jameson. Have you lived long in  this part of the country?"  Jameson went to the dusty window  and pointed to tho great bulk of  Myrant Peak that thrust above tho  skyline.  "When I first came here," he said,  "that peak was just a hole in the  ground. It's grown up since then. I  haven't. You say your name's Stone?  Are you the man who slapped a  drink of whisky in Corse's eyes in  the Silver Dollar?"  "I reckon I did," said Stone, grinning.

I haven't  said a word about it. I thought it  best. Maybe I can help you about  that item you want in the encyclopedia," said Jameson shortly.  "First of all. . . . Do you know  an old desert-rat named Kane?"  "Who? Dad Kane? Old man  Shammy-skin Kane? They call him  that because he always wears a shirt  made of chamois skin. He says he  can use it with his mercury to try  out his gold ore ... when ho finds  it. Of course I know him."  "Is he straight?"  "Absolutely. That is, he's perfectly honest except in minin' matters.  He's queer though. Tell me what  these questions mean/'  Stone thrust a hand deep into his  coat-pocket and kept it there while  he studied Jameson. He liked what  he saw and his face broke into a  pleasant smile.  "I've been on the Hour-glass payroll for four months now," ho said  irrelevantly.  "It's a good outfit," said Jameson.  "I'm. sorry they've had so much hard  luck. Now take Joe Car. He's a fine  old fellow but he has dropped behind  in the race for money and he will  never catch up. He just don't know  what it's all about. He's got a good  outfit, too, but a good body can't  help if the head is gone. Of course  he's got a good man in Prank Crewe.  They don't mako many men like  Crewe.   .   .  ."  "And Edith ..." said Stone tentatively.  Jameson's- grim, face instantly lit  with a light that there was no mistaking. Even tho silence answered  Stone's half-formed question.  "Yeah," -aald Jameson quietly.  "Edith .  .  . What about her?"  "Crowe told mo that, while Edith  was out riding with me, that man  Dustin como ovor to the Hour-glass.  Ho saw old man Carr and told him  that ho wants to marry Edith . . ."  Evan Jameson, tlio lanky editor of  tho moribund paper that certainly  could not support him, throw himself  across his dealt and grabbed at  aSlono's arm.  "Toll mo that again," ho said  earnestly.

After   one  brief glance at Jameson, Stone knew  that he could "go the limit."  "I'll tell you why I want to find old  Man Kane," he said.  He perched on the desk and told  Jameson of his first row with Dustin.  Ho told him of the fight wtib. Corse  and Gray in the" hills above the ranch.  He told how he 'found old Kane's lost  notebook and of the trip that he  took with Edith. Finally he laid on  the desk the pieces of rock from the  mine.  "I can get Buxton right here in  town to assay 'em/' said Jameson.  "He'll -will not talk If I tell him not  to. . , Go on. . . ."  "Well . . .we were riding home  when Dustin, who had been at the  Hour-glass, came peltin* down the  trail and tried to rldo mo down ln  the golpe de caballo. His horse must  have slipped or something for Dustin was upset. (Jameson's eyes  gleamed at that.) While ho was lyin'  there unconscious, I went through his  pockets. I found a note from Joe  Carr to Pegram of the Seco bank for  eleven thousand dollars. Pegram had  sold it to Dustin. Then, when I got  to the Hour-glass, Crcwo told me that  Dustin had come there to tell Carr  that ho wants to marry Edith. . . ."  "Woll . ,. . ?" Jameson's volco took  a tool odgo.   "Go on.  . ."  "'Then I took tho car and came  here.  ..."  "To loolc for something in an encyclopedia," said Jameson.  Stono grinned. "You stick to tho  point, don't you? "Look horo . . .*"  And ho laid on tho littered table an  envelope and tho cigarette tliat he  had taken from. Dustin's pocket. Ho  emptied the envelope on thc deck nnd  fingered tho contents���������three or four  stubs of burned cigarettes and a  little pile of brown dust. Then he  picked up tho whole cigarette that ho  had taken from Duatln,  "Thoso aro not tobacco," ho said.  "I found tho stubs in tho camp whoro  . Kane mup.t have   gone   with Duatln.  . . .

One kilowatt is the equal of 1000  watts, therefore a continuous light  of 60 watts would use up a kilowatt in 20 hours, the cost of  which would be 12 cents.

Both in land clearing arid building  this has been a banner year. On the  Connell Subdivision, especially, great  improvements are observed. In the past  two years 14 houses have been erected.  1934 accounting for two. J. S. Fisher of  Cranbrook has built on the ten-acre tract  he purchased the year previous, and H.  H. Tooze has also completed a home on  his ten-acre holding. Both residences  are average size and modern in every  way. In this section, too, much clearing has been done and it now Rives tho  appearance of an industrious and prosperous section of Erickson.  Other new "homes erected last year are  the E. 1.-1 askins and Geo. Hobden bungalows on the main highway, with thoso  of W. V. Jackson and J. Mermet to the  east of Erickson, and at thc extreme  west (on tho Creston boundary" R. R.  Robinson has erected a residence. AU  these houses aro fully mod rn.  Some now businesses have started  which aro beginning to give Erickson the  air of a small village. In October the  Connell Motors was taken over by  Messrs. Swain and Brown of Calgary,  Alberta, nnd is now operating under tho  name of Speedway Motor**. AaroBfl tho  street from the garage, in tho old Spoakei*  buildinga wo find a now butcher shop  operated by J, Cochrane  1934, too, saw tho change in ownership of sovornl fine orchard properties,  and tho arrival of tho now owners in tho  valloy. Tho G orgo Hobdon ranch, on  the lower road, was purchased early in  thc spring by Mr. McCoy of Winnipeg,  Man. Thn Wlekf-trom property early ui  tho year was purchased by T. WilHon  who a couple of years previous acquired  tho Maxwell ranch, coming horo from  Fornio to take potmofislon on tin? com*  pl-ulion of a lmudMomO'ti-aw two-story voi-������  idonce.

The Kant; Croston irrigation i-yHtom,  which camo Into hho In lOJlO, him, undoubtedly played a Surge' part In tho development of Erickson, and last year the  dh-trlct would havo suffered n tremend  ous setback had it not been for the plentiful supply of water. If the valley is to  have a recurrence of the very dry weath  er experienced in 1934 it will be universally grafted the supply will be none to  ample when the district is fully settled  up. In November the irrigation district  opened their new office building in] Creston, located on Canyon R ad across from  the Orchard Service station. The new  building is thoroughly modern in appearance and is set off by a paint job of red  and white. It will be used as an office,  store building and meeting place of the  water users.  Since the disastrous blizzard of 1924,  Erickson has been steadily increasing tbe  fruit production, with 1934 figures showing a considerable increase over that  fateful year. 1933 shipments of apples  totalled 97,680 boxes, a<- compared with  108,050 boxes in 1934. A big increase is  also shown in the shipping of plums,  prnfioo. phepr'es nnd ppsrs. Fissures  show 105 cars of apples shipped, with 57  cars of mixed fruit and vegetables. It  may also bp noted here that 17 cars of  hay, mostly from Camp Lister, have left  Erickson statio -, as also have eight cars  of poles.  W. G. Littlejohn last year had another  successful season for both bulbs and cut  flowers, and for 1985 is expecting to  again increase his output. Congratulations are due Mrs C Kelsey on her. success with seed wheat and corn, exhibited  at Toronto. Chicago and Vancouver the  pa������"t three years a? well as at the Woild's  Grain Fair at Regina, Sask., in 1932,  with outstanding success, particularly  with Dent and Flint corn.  September, 1934, saw the commencement of a new line of sport at Erickson  Tony Cobus, public school principal, has  organized a girls' ������ asketball team and  they are entered in the district junior  league. Considering this is their first  year they have made a creditable showing. It is expected a local packing shed  will be fitted up for this sport next season,  Bide-a-"Woo tourist camp, under the  capable management of Knotts', reports  a successful season, alth^vxh tho traffic  slackened up in August on account of  forest fires and bad roads, but fall trndo  showed a marked increase. Tourists  wero registered from all parts of tho con  tinent, with some from London, England,  and a party from "Wales, en route home  from China and Japan. The increase in  business last fall is accounted for by the  interest in the dyking project and the  trucking out of fruit by prairie residents.  Miss Kathleen Bundy's splendid educational achievement* directed much ,  attention to Erickson. In her fourth  year at Creston high school she ranked  fourth highest in all British Columbia at  the midsummer, junior matriculation examinations, winning one of the governor-general's medals as well as a scholarship at TJ.B.C.

They spent the  winter of 1891 at Kalispel, Montana,  arriving here early in 1892, at which  time decease*:, found employment on the  valley's first reclamation project, he  dyking of the present Reclamation  Farm. Since that time he has been a  permanent resident, except for a few  months spent in Porthill and Kaslo  The late John Arrowsmith, the late  Fred Little and John W.

Being  at the head oc the first family to arrive  at Creston it was but natural he took a  keen interest in education and served on  Creston's first school board as well as  taking a ve*y active part in the building  cf Creston's first -schoolhouse. In addition to his activities at Creston deceased  for some years had extensive property  holdings at Arrow Creek.  In addition to his widow he is survived  by three daughters, Mrs. G. A. M.

Then the newspaper  girls took heart and there was no stopping them, with Levirs Payne and Palmer scoring alternately, and by half time  the score was 15-12 in Moores' favor.  The start of the second half was a nightmare* with -a great deal of rough play and  both squads out to win, and by three-  quarter time the score stood 18-15 in Re-  view^favcr. At the start of tbe last  quarter saw the crowd in suspense with  the Review managing to net a couple of  classy baskets, bringing the score to  21-17 in their favor. Emerging from a  pileup Ada Lewis left the floor for personals, leaving the Review with only four  players. From then on t^e Review played against ifive members ? of the Moore  squad and held them in 'baLd well, but  in spite of their good/ defense the garage  girla broke through several tiroes and  scored. With four minutes to go they  tied the score 21 all. l hen coach Cobus  of Moores pulled Betty Speers leaving  each side with fonr players. By this  time both teams w*-re keyed up and nervous and the newspaper defence was unable to stop Nell Payne as she got  through notching a basket just before  the whistle to make the final score 26-25.

Some medical authorities accept  his anti-paralysis vaccine as a now  proven guardian against the disesae  which destroys the spinal motor cord  of the muscles, thus causing lameness and  withering of  limbs.  "Final proof," says the young  scientist, "will be in studies in epidemic areas."  Only then can be determined if the  immunity gained in vaccinated persons is adequate.  The young Canadian bacteriologist  reported before the Pittsburg convention of the American Association for  the advancement of science on his  long labors and the vaccine they have  produced to bring high hopes that  the frightful disease is to be curbed.  The modest, 31-year-old Ottawa  scientist left untold, however, the  fact that his experiments appear to  be also pointing a way to ridding the  world of sleeping sickness.  His laboratory search for a preventive vaccine for this mysterious  malady is advanced to the point  where vaccinated white rats are able  to withstand intracerebral injections  of  the virus itself.

Heavy water is composed of two  atoms of double-weight hydrogen  (deuterium) and one of oxygen. Of  every 5,000 drops of water, one is  "heavy."

Football Fatalities  General   Smuts   Says    Pacifists  Mostly Responsible For It  The condemnation by  Smuts of what he rightly described  as senseless war talk is very timely.

Minerals For Ycung Chicks  Feeding   Too   Utile   Is   As   Baa   Aa  Too Much  There is such a thing as overfeeding young chicks on -minerals, and  that is just aa bad as underfeeding.  The rather strange thing, however,  is that an excessive supply of minerals manifests itself in much the  same manner as when too little mineral matter is suppled. A mash containing the usual percentage of meat  scraps or meat and bone meal and  dry skim-milk, according to tests at  the Ohio experiment station, carries  plenty of mineral matter for chicks  until they are ten weeks old.  These tests are in accord with results obtained at other stations, and  may therefore be considered as quite  reliable. Meat scraps, of course, are  very rich in calcium, carrying from  20 to 25 per cent, of that element,  which normally makes up three-  quarters of the minerals in the mash  of chickens. Dry skim-milk carries  about 10 per cent, of phosphorus and  calcium in a very digestible form.  When one substitutes part vegetable  protein for meat scraps in the mash,  it is highly desirable to feed additional minerals as the vegetable proteins do not contain a������-niuch mineral  matter as the animal proteins.

Napier Denison, director of the Dominion meteorological observatory afc  Victoria, said recently that the climate of British Columbia and of tho  whole Domnion has been gradually  turning milder for the past fifty  years or more.  Winnipeg can boast of the greatest  change in average temperature, said  Mr. Denison, with an improvement  of six degrees, 1883 being the coldest  year on record during the last 53  years and 1931 the warmest.  Records for Toronto and Montreal  show these cities have experienced a  gradual rise of about four degrees.  Montreal's record cold year was 1875  and 1931 was the warmest.  Alberta and the Maritime provinces  are tied in third place, both being  about three degrees warmer. Records  at Calgary show the lowest temperatures there in 1887 and the highest In  1931, white 1875 was the coldest year  recorded at Charlotte town, F.E.I.,  and 1901 the mildest with 1930 and  1931 coming next.  The Pacific coast shows the smallest change of all, about one and one-  half degrees. Records show 1880 and  1884 -were the coldest years With  1893 and 1915 coming near the low  mark, and 1926 being the warmest.  Fort St. James, In the northern Interior, shows a change of about three  degrees in the past 40 years.  These figures seem to indicate the  warm and cold years come in cycles  with the cold years around 1875 to  1890 and the warm years between  1926 aad  1931.  Two important questions to be answered In the future will be, what is  causing this peculiar change in our  climate and how long   will   it   con-  One-fif th of all homes in the United  States are without kitchefc sinks.  ^SNAPSHOT CUIL  HOW ABOUT MOVIES?

Challenge To  United   States  Schools  To Reduce Death Toll  A sharp challenge to United States  high and preparatory schools to reduce their footbalL death toll wasj  issued by Prof. Floyd H.

Fatal injuries in college, athletic  club and sandlot games are decreasing, Eastwood told the American  Football Coaches Association. In contrast, the undiminlshing number of  high and preparatory school fatalities  form an increasing percentage of the  total. The percentage was 56.5 this  year against 36.3 in 1931.

It's fasclnat-  Ing sport,  too.  May as well be frank about it.  Until a few months ago I had the  notion, shared by a good many other  folks, that home movies were (1)  expensive, (2) difficult, and (3) not  very good, anyway.  And then Bill, a friend of mine,  got a movie outfit. Neither ho nor  his family can bo classed as wealthy,  or anything like it, but there he was  -���������sporting a movlo camera. Naturally, I was curious.  Tho camera itself was about tho  size of a small book. Slid into a topcoat pockot without any fuss at all.  It was neat as tho proverbial pin  and about as simple. BUI showed  mo how to run it. You merely held  it up, aimed it aa you would a gun,  pressed a button���������and you aro making movies. Oh, of course, there was  a spring to wind and a lens aperture to sot, but it was any amount  simpler than my favorite snapshot  camera.   Even tho loading was easy.  That particular camera, as I i*e-  call it, cost about "HO. It used 8 mm.  film and hold enough to allow for a  couplo do-son full-length allots���������each  shot long enough to show, for cx-  amplo, a sensational football play,  from thc snap of tho bnll to tho end  of n fifty-yard run, forward pass included. All that on about ten cents'  worth of fllm.  Movlo film, I learned, la really  pretty cheap to begin with ahd  doubly so whon you consider that  tho purchaso "price Includes the coot  of finishing dono   by   tho   manufac-  t. VI 1*01*  Woll, I rovlHfld my natlona of  raovlon,  an  to   coat   and   difficulty,  tinue? Mr. Denison can-answer the  first question as far as British Columbia is concerned.  /Tt is evident that in recent years  the North Pacific ocean storms have  been more severe and widespread, and  have caused unusual ocean currents  from the warmer southern latitudes,  and these in conjunction with mild  weather prevailing ln these -vast  ocean storms have caused mildex  weather on this coast," he said.  Taken Out Of Circulation  promptly. And when I saw the fln  ished movies, a week later, I got all  over thc idea that amateur movies  woren't very good. Bill's were excellent. And he's only an average  person, a snapshooter like tho rest  of us.  I'm passing all this on merely for  your consideration. Movies, at their  best, will never in tills world tako  tho placo of good snapshots.. Tho  snapshots camera has a charm all its  own. But there's no reason at all  why snapahootors shouldn't tako up  movies, too. For, obviously, movies  can do things that still cameras cannot. They can got tho whole of a  bit of action Instead of merely a  part of it.  As far as technicalities are concerned, nnyono who has mastered  tho essentials of snapshooting can  take up tho modern movlo camora  without a qualm. Bill has pormittcd  mo to make a number of movie shots  and I'm both surprised and delighted  with tlio rosults. Maybo someday  I'll got mo an outfit.  I find that thore aro two standard  sl-soa for amateur movie -film 8 millimeter and lfl millimeter- (Hollywood usoa SB millimeter fllm.) Natural ly, cofltn are lens in the 8 mm.  class than in th������ 1(5, but oven tho  10 mm, outfits aro surprisingly reasonable In both first and oporatlng  costH, Of course, you can spend a  groat deal of money on apodal equipment, but It's not at all nocoooary.  By tho way, with eortaln 10 mm.  outfits you can get action pictures' in  full color. That'a something wo  snapnliootorn can't quite do, to dnto.  .TOHN VAN OUILDER.

Guest, M.A.>  49  viststasmsf'tg Sguallty ��������������� I������ow Price  Beware The Danger Spots  The inauguration -throughout Canada of new social services, and the  extension of social services already existing-, are policies to which it is now  clear all "political parties in Parliament are definitely committed. Since the  "beginning of the present century there has been a steady growth, not only  in. Canada but in all countries in the number and scope of these services of  a social character, and it is now evident that the people of this Dominion  are in favor of more and still larger and comprehensive services of this  character.  This development is in line with modern trends and the new conception  that all the people are responsible for the welfare of each individual citizen.  We refer to this as a new conception, yet it is as old as civilization itself.  Man is his brother's keeper and if and when man fails to discharge that  responsibility to his fellowmen, then the very civilization which protects him  will collapse. So it is that the great majority of people will be found to  welcome the introduction and enlargement of a national programme of  social services.  There are, however, one or two danger spots in connection with such a  programme which the Canadian people will be well advised to recognize at  the outset. These services are designed to be helpful to us as individuals  and as a nation; let us therefore beware that they do not actually prove  harmful.  The first danger to avoid is, that in our enthusiasm and commendable  desire to provide social services, and to establish them, upon a generous  scale, we do not overdo it, and embark upon programmes which may prove  to be beyond the financial capacity of the Canadian people to maintain.  Social services such as old age pensions, mother's allowances, unemployment  insurance, free medical services, etc., will cost an enormous amount of  money annually. Some of these services are already costing the Federal  and Provincial Governments many millions of dollars, but present expenditures are undoubtedly small in comparison with the cost of proposals now  being advanced.  Each and every one of these social services can he provided and made  possible by just one method, and that is taxation. That is, the community  as a whole must through the payment of taxes provide the money which  Will be distributed through one social service or another to the people who  are in need of such service. If fifty million dollars are required for, say the  payment of old age pensions thoughout Canada, then taxes which will yield  fifty million in revenue to the government must be imposed and paid "by tho  people. There is no other way. This fact must be recognized, together with  the further fact that there is a limit beyond which people cannot pay taxes,  and any social or other service which depends upon government taxes beyond that limit will find itself in difficulty.  Once established, experience has proven that these social services grow  Very rapidly and that expenditures largely increase. This experience indicates a second danger spot. It is this: So long as individual man and  woman are required to look out for themselves and plan, for their future,  they will, as a rule, work, exercise some degree of thrift, and save against  sickness and old age. In a word, self preservation will be one of the guiding rules of their life. But once it becomes an accepted and established fact  that people will be provided for whether they are at work or not, that the  community will care for them and all their ills if and whon sick, and that  the community will suppot them throughout their old age and bury them  when they die,���������then there is grave danger that the incentive which is now  thc great driving force in our human nature will become less keen, weaken  and gradually die.  Champion Bricklayer  Philip Lancaster, 24-year-old foreman in a brickyard at Hull, England,  lays claim to the title of being the  ���������world's champion bricklayer. He laid  3,000 bricks in four hours, a record,  he says. In the first hour he laid  908, a little better than 15 a minute.  HE FELT MISERABLE  AFTER MEALS  Acute   Indigestion  Relieved  by Kruschen  The treatment which put this man  right must surely be worthy trying in  every case of indigestion, Kead what  he says:���������  "Two years ago I suffered very  much from indigestion, loss of appetite, and a most severe pain in my  back. Food soured in my stomach.  I felt most miserable after meals, and  had no desire or appetite for them.  A friend advised me to try Kruschen  Salts. I did so, and I am most happy  to testify that after a short time I  felt the greates relief. I coninued  taking Kruschen till I felt myself  quite better and a new man. I feel  as light-hearted as I did twenty  years ago."���������W. B.  What Kruschen did for hsm it will  do for everybody els������ who suffers  from indigestion as he did. The fact  is that "the little dally dose" ot  Kruschen first stimulates the flow of  gastric juices to aid digestion, and  then ensures a complete, regular and  unfailing elimination of all waste  matter every day.  Glass becomes negatively charged  when rubbed with catskin, but positively charged when rubbed with silk.  Also,   a   strip   of   celluloid   becomes  negatively charged when drawn "Between the -fingers.   In order to detect  and measure the electric charges on  any substance scientists have devised  an instrument known as the electro-  cope.    A simple type of electroscope  consists of a bottle with a paraffin  stopper, through which runs a piece  of glass tubing.    Passed through the  glass  tube  is a piece   of   brass   or  copper wire from which are suspended   two  strips  of  gold  leaf.    A ball  made   of   tinfoi!   is  attached   to   the  other   end   of  the   wire    and    is,    of  course, outside the bottle just above  the paraffin stopper.    Whenever the  ball  is  given  either   a   negative   or  positive charge  the leaves ny apart  in proportion to  the an\punt of the  charge.    A rubber comb rubbed on a  cat becomes negatively charged and  if the comb is placed on the tinfoil  ball some of this charge is imparted  to   the   electroscope  and   the   leaves  will fly apart.    Since   the   charge   is  negative,    another    negative    charge  will cause the leaves to spread still  father    apart,    whereas   a   positive  charge will  cause the leaves to fall  together before again flying apart. In  this -way the kinds of charges may  be determined.    When even the best  of electroscopes are charged it is observed that the   gold   leaves   slowly  come    together    again.    This   means  that  some  electrically  charged  particles from the atmosphere are neutralizing the charges on the leaves.  Scientists set out   to   discover  what  was causing   this   discharge   of   an  electroscope  and found  that  it "was  due to  certain rays which came  to  the earth   from   outer   space.    They  are called cosmic rays.  Many attempts have been made to  stop the natural leak or discharge of  an electroscope. These attempts  have always failed despite the use of  the most perfect insulators and the  protection of the electroscope by lead  shields, several feet in thickness.  These experiments suggested that  there exists an unusually penetrating  radiation of feeble intensity.  Scientists have carried electroscopes to points near the two poles  of the earth, at the equator, and at  various other latitudes. Electroscopes  and similar indicating and recording  devices have been sent up into the  air in sounding balloons to altitudes  of over 20 miles, and have been carried to altitudes of 25,000 feet by  airplanes in various localities and  have been taken to high mountains  as well as to depths as great as 1,000  feet in lakes. All experiments show  that the rays come from above the  earth and so they have been called  cosmic rays. Outstanding among the  various investigators in this work  are two American scientists, Millikan  and Compton.

White and unshaven, the German  carpenter tottered slightly as he  stood between his guards and heard  himself ordered to "die in the electric chair."  He was sentenced to die in the  wefek of March 18, but an almost  certain appeal to the New Jersey  court of appeals and" errors would  stay tlie execution. The high court  is not likely to pass upon the appeal  until late in May.  The jury of eight men and four  women spent 11 hours and six minutes in a bare hack room, of the old  court house where Hauptmann had  been on trial since Jan. 2 before they  reached their verdict. '  "We find the defendant, Bruno  Richard Hauptmann, guilty of murder  In the first degree," intoned Foreman  Charles Walton, Sr., in the deathly  quiet of the littered, smoke-filled  courtroom.  Anna Hauptmann, tears rolling  down her cheeks as her husband went  silently back to his cell, cried: "There  Is nothing left for me."  But she dried her eyes as she pushed through the thronged court room  and left by a rear door.  "I. am not afraid," she said. "X still  hope."  Polled individually at the insistence  of Edward J. Reilly, chief of the defence counsel, the jurors a*t*firmed the  verdict in quavering voices.  Reilly announced soon after the  verdict was returned that- he would  file an appeal and carry it "to the  highest court in the country."  "Although the jury has rendered a  verdict on the facts in the case, we  still beliive that a great many errors  In law have been committed, which  will mean ultimately the reversal of  this -judgment," he said.  On the? other hand, Wilentz said:  "The tremendous responsibility imposed upon Hunterdon county was  shouldered without flinching. The  nation is indebted to these courageous  men and -women." -  Wreck Of U.S. Dirigible  Cause Ox Mid-Air   Collapse  "Remains  A Mystery  San Francisco.���������How the United  States naval dirigible Macon reared  and plunged crazily for 35 minutes  before falling and sinking to the bottom of the Pacific was revealed in  the stories of its survivors.

The man in danger of losing his home  for inability to pay the tax was still  paying a wage tax, he said. He urged some steps by the government to  ease the burden of taxation on the  lower paid wage earners.  Mr. Evans spoke after W. J. West-  wood <L.ib. Prog., Robliril and J. L.  Christie (Lib.

He passed through Montreal en  route back to England from British  Columbia.  The society, he said, had bought  1,000 acres of land on Vancouver  Island, and building would commence  shortly. Through private subscription and co-operation of the British  government the children will be trained on the largest farm-school of its  kind ever attempted in Canada. It  will be modelled after the Fairbridge  farm school of Australia. Major Trew  estimated when the school is in full  operation 400 boys and girls will be  in residence. They will'be taken from.

UG&ST MEANS  TO LESSEN DEATH  TOLL ON HIGHWAYS  Ottawa.���������Longer jail terms for  negligent drivers who kill and maim  on the public highways will not stop  the mounting toll of automobile  crashes, Minister of Justice Hugh  Guthrie advised the House of Commons. Urged by T. *L. Church (Cons.,  Toronto East) to stiffen the penalties  for drivers responsible for highway  slaughters, he said education was the  only possible means of inducing safe  driving.  For two hours the house discussed  Canada's "mounting toll of highway  accidents, with the Toronto member  finally withdrawing his resolution  and suggesting the government institute a broad investigation so the  next parliament may have sufficient  material   to   warrant   recasting   the  janra.  Suggestions came from all sides.  They included longer jail terms,  elimination of level crossings, cancellation of drivers* permits for long  periods, and inclusion of women on  juries trying highway cases.  "Everybody seems to have the  speed bug except the House of Commons," exclaimed Toronto's wartime  mayor, claiming Canada was 20  years behind the time in highway  legislation. He urged a general stiffening of penalties and possibly the  adaptation of New York state's  homicide law for highway killings.  A general survey should be made  with the co-operation of the provinces  and possibly a new department of  safety established at Ottawa to lead  the fight.  Only by a process of education of  the public,, by teaching motorists to  observe the courtesy of the road  could any improvement take place,  Mr. Guthrie believed. Increases in  accidents occurred in other countries  despite imposition of stricter penalties and changes in the speed limits.  Mr. Church had not suggested any  Vice-Regal Tour Of West  Edmonton. ��������� His Excellency, the  Governor-General, and Lady Bessborough, will be in Edmonton from | definite proposals for amendments to  6:30 a.m., March 22 to 7 a.m., on  March 23, during their farewell tour  of the west, according to an announcement made from the office of  Hon.
