The      mineral   industry  of  British  Columbia     has     never had a better  chance than it  has  today,  is the e>p-  inioir   of   the   Koostiray   Mail.       The-  jirices of  metals all round are good.  Silver keeps  over  the  CO cent  mark,  lead last week touched the high point  of ������1-1.10s.  in   London,  zinc  is high  and irr great demand  and eleetrilytic  copper      commands   round   16  cents.  These  prices   afford   excellent   opportunities for making money  by the development of     tire mineral industry,  and,   as     usual,   American investors  are coming in  to take up what Canadians  have neglected.  The London Times'in its issue of  OctoL-er 21th last had the'foiiovving  letter irom Hon. J. II. Turner, agent general for British Columbia: "An  erroneous opinion is prevalent in  Great Britain that the climate of the  mainland in Lntish Columbia is very  in-dement in wintt-r.

Up till  now our quarantine officer, Mr. Verifier,   provincial   constable,   stationed  at Osoyoos,  which is  the  port of entry on th<3 Canaelian side, has    been  appointed  to guard the fronliei. Tho  greatest.danger to the futuie of our  fruit industry lie*s not in  the  Aineii-  can competition, for  we can hold our  (own  with   them  or  any  other fruitgrowers  in  any   land   but  (wc   have  'good reason to dread)  infection .from  insect pests where American oichaid.s  'are located  near  the  bounelary. line.

A week  after  the  frost      the  leaves  are. as green as they were     a  month   ago.

The sewing machine still bothered  mo by running hard even after I had  thoroughly oiled and cleaned it, says  one ���������woman. ;Biit nt last I found one  place thai I had neglected���������tho throat  plate. All that, was necessary was to  remove thc screw and lift that littlo  cover, where the needle runs in and  out. There was such un accumulation  of dust and dirt that tho trouble wai  easily accounted for.  Peat possesses-; wonderful antiseptic  and preservative qualities owing to the  presence of tannin, iron and other substances in it. Here is an instance: At  the time of the covenanters, in 1GS5,  three men were shot at a place called  Crossgelloch on lhe moors above Old  Cumnock; in Scotland. In lsS2o, when  a monument was being erected to their  memory, the workmen came upon the  corpses rolled in their plaids. The bodies were in exactly the same state as  when they were buried. The moss had  preserved them as if they had been embalmed.  knows this  lection of the average specimens as  a rule, for wide variations generally  perish,and the only living animals are  those v/hicli ha\e inherited this tendency to mate with opposites.  Wide variations do not even originate new species, for these arise by  survival of types somewhere near the  average. The same law governs  mini's survival. Should iil-.etypesx  mate, their common characteristics  may be so exaggerated as to he w.arm-  fui and the line perish. Incest is unnatural because (races die out by in:-  and-m hi ceding and surviving types  ore all descended from those who had  opposite tendencies. Exogamy,...'.or  the selection of mates from other  tubes, was tho next step, and became universal, foi no other tribeis  were so vigorous and consequently  they perished.  Ihe ancient bibiic.il moral laws against consanguineous and endagomous  marriage*     are meieiy the expression  of inherited instincts.    Mankind   being  ihen descended     from those who nat>  i-rally marry their opposites, the present tendency is a natural  law.     It is  an instinct ior  those of great  intelligence, to   mairy those of less than the  ayc'ingc,  for     the ol.sprmg revert...to  the better aver age.   Only occasionally  do  exceptionally     able people ' marry  tlieir equals to produce those remark-  | ahie families,  all of whom  are noted.  It   is evident that if    we try to im-  j.rciViC   the race,   we  will violate tin*  natural law upon which  our existence  is based.  Artificial matrimonial selection has  been tried, " though the results were  disastrous.  was based on the idea that eugenics  was    a science. Unfortunately   the  leaders failed to recognize the fact  that thc men and .women who joined  in such an abnormal life must have  been abnormal     themselves.     Though  Species survive by so- there'is. ability to fulfil the rrie and  survive. Rarely is there any reference  to the viability or vigor of the future  offspring, but should it be a vital  question as in royal marriages, it is  settled upon a general survey of each  family and eugenics is not. involved in*  the least.  The tendency to be average or normal is, a fact which biologists have  not sufficiently- investigated. Every  departure from the normal, whether  we,call it normal, whether' we ca" it  a variation or modification,' must he  due to a new cause. It cann0t- be  causeless. If in subsequent genera  tions this cause is removed the abnormality will not reappear. We  have long given up the idea that disease te inherited, for'! wa know it nevei;  appears if the cause is; excluded.  This tendency to be normal,is a'hi-  oiogic law   of such  paramount  importance., to    physicians     that'-.-'it is . astounding     there is   less     hoard of it.  The influence of     the environment in  changing organisms is becoming more  and more recognized, and heredity reduced to a mere tendency to-do as tjie  parents      did   in   like conditions.      1,1  wholly explains  why .defective parents  if they live in a healthy, normal manner may     produce line offspring.' The  children     have not been damaged  as  the patents     have. Instcajd of ex  cluding such parents from matrimony  by eugenic theories, the \\!io*o mini  of investigation must be in the direction of discO'-icrmg and removing the  cause of the defects.

Rummtngs.  ;.- The improvement of the human race)  by properly     selected marriages is  a  subject  which      periodically crops   up  for  academic     discussion    in medical  and .scientific literature. / It has even  been.' dignified as    a science under, the  name of eugenics, says Medicine. The  end  may be    desirable,  but  there are  two defects in our     knowledge of the  subject which will forever prevent any  practical suggestion.-  *  No one Kiicws   ��������� what type  will  he  the best for     survival  in an unknown  future     environment.       We often see  the extinction of the families  oi  parents  whom any physician would have  pronounced    ideal,     but their children  lacked resistance     to the invasion  oi  pathogenic     organisms  o*t. there  was  some other defect     which  made them  easy    targets     for climatic causes  of  physical    decay.     On  the oilier hand  we, quite often    find that parents below   par physically have i'mo  families.  Mr.  Pipp is    not a mere artistic cre-  alion.  In the second place it is not at an  certain that thc strongest are the  best, necessarily,, for tho future. Typhoid fever seems to delight in removing our splendid specimens and  but lightly touching the more frail. A  large physique may also be an actual  encumbrance. 'Gorilla, like muscles  are now as wholly, out of place ������.nd  as useless us arc the long arms of our  ancestors, and as it was uncconomi-  calto support, these types of men  were crowded out hy the weaker.  [Likewise,, rfiuts nowj .useful' may become useless and therefore detrimental, and fci a pcr:0d of stress the type  Avouid perish, while the survivors  would be what we consider weaklings.  The curious unions which lake place  apparently defying explanation, must  he the result of U>\v such as we find  in every biologic phenomenon. Ahout  the only thing we. know certainly is  that the man has the same instinct  found in the lower animals to select a  mate who is more or less different  from     himself.
