Mamie Stevens, a Nelson  fortune  teller, applied Jor a.-license, - which  the council refused to grant.  .^-Edward -Taylor's   resignation -as  police commissioner was  accepted.  A couple of charity cases   in the  Grand Forks hospital were   referred  to the health and relief   committee.  The chairman of   the water and  light committee reported that, extra  protection   from   frost   had    been  placed around the hydrants.  The clerk was authorized to refund the road tax to all returned  men who had paid the same.  John A. Hutton was appointed  returning officer in the city election  next month.

LIEU1.-GOVERN0R  THE UNKNOWN  On the Previous Day He  Underwent an Operation, From the Effects  of Which He Never  Rallied  L  ACT BV  Premier Oliver Says Mu-  '   nicipalities  Will   Then  Be Glad to Apprehend  >'  Offenders  Inscription on the Abbey  Tomb���������"Greater Lcve  Hath No Man Than  This"  The Family Herald;:  and ^Veekly Star  The Family  Herald and  Weekly  Star of Montreal has announced that  after December 31st, 1920,   the sub*  scription price of that great weekly  will be $2.00 per year ini Canada,  England,  Ireland or Scotland.   The  recent heavy increase in the cose of  white paper makes fche slight advance  necessary, in fact it is only a small  portion of the increased cost over prewar prices of production. All renewals and subscriptions,  the publishers  say,  mailed before December  31st,  1920, will be accepted at the old rate  of $1.50. Even at the advanced price  of $2.00 a year, The Family Herald  is regarded as the best value on the  Continent. It is acknowledged to be  absolutelywhhoufc a rival,  hence -its  enormous circulation.  .'orvnr.v-.  After  an interval   of  seven   days,  during which about a Million   people  passed through   Westminster  Abbey  to pay homage to the   remains  of the  Unknown Warrior, the grave  of  the  national hero   was.filled   in.   At the  very last moment a lady  came to the  Deanery bringing .with ."her a maple  leaf that had been sent from  Canada  by a soldier who had earned the Vic  torit  Cross at Lucknow.   She asked  that  this  seould   be   placed  on the  coffin before the grave was sealed  up  and her wish was carried out. Within  half an hour the nave had been cleard  of   people.   The Abbey   was nearly  in darkness, and the Unknown Warrior was at last alone, For three hours  tbe coffin was not touched.   An organ  recital had been aranged in the Abbey  and it was decided  not to close  the  grave until  this   had  finished. -Jor  nearly two   hours  the  organ  pealed  out and the Warrior received a fitting    O  last requiem, The recital over, the  grave was filled with soil that had  been brought for the purpose from  the battlefields of France and Flanders A temporary stone was then placed  in position, bearing the following in  scridtion:  Victoria, Dec. 13���������Edward Gawler  Prior, Lieutenant Governor, of British Columbia,  died   in  the-Royal  Jubilee Hospital last night at seven  o'clock,after an illness of five weeks.  His Honor was suffering from intestinal trouble, and on Saturday morning underwent  an  operation,  from  the effects of which he never rallied.  Born in Yorkshire in 1852, E.'G,  Proir came to Canada in  1873. He  located at Nanaimo, where he was  assistant manager of a coal  mine,  and   later inspector of mines. He  then went into business and founded  what is now the firm of E. G. Prior  & Company Ltd, In 1886 he was elected "to the Legislature from  Victoria. Two years later he was elected  by acclamation to the House of Commons, and he continued to serve in  the    Dominion    House    until he  returned  to   provincial  politics in  1902, when he was called'on to form  a government and became Premier  Prior. He was appointed Lieutenant Governor last year, his appointment dating from -'December 1? In  addition to his public services and  his    business   activities   Governor  Prior took a keen  interest in  military-matters.  He commanded .the  Bisley team in 1890,   in   1888 was  appointed O. C. of the Fifth  Regiment,  C. G. A., and he was twice  president of the Dominion Artillery  Association.  .New Westminster; Dec. 14.��������� The  new iiquor legislation   to replace the  prohibiton bill will be in  effect  by  the first of May, Premier Oliver in-  formed Mayor Johnson yesterday in  the course of a discmsion of the confiscated liquor problem. New  West-  (minister is considering the advisabil  ilyvof appealing Mr. Justice Morrison's decison,.handing this liquor  over to the provincial authorities.'1  ,   'Surrey would like to see this ojty  .carry this, which is in the nature' of  a test case, to the appeal courtj a'nd  in fact is willing to share the expens-  ,ee. But Premier Oliver euggested  it  was hardly worth while,   when  the  new act is in sight. Mayor Johnston  told the Premier what   Reeve Sullivan had said about it, The reeve declared that Surrey has $5000 worth of  confiecated liquor, and if it has to-be  surrendered then Surrey will  withdraw its special constables and let the  smugglers "go to it.,,  The Premier's only comment was  that it is the duty of the municipalities to enforce 'the law. He said,  hdwever^thatTinder the new enactment it will be worth the while "of  the municipalities to get after offenders.  After the Premier's departure the  aldermen discussed the question of  appealing, but came to no decision.

In 1919'Oxperiments were started  on Duck Island, which is situated near  the eastern end of Lake Ontario and  is eight miles from the nearest Island  and over elevn miles from tho mainland. Duck Island covors only about  two square miles and no bees exist  upon it. Tho Duck Island experiments  were continued in 1920 and have  prove successful,'twenty seven Italian  queens of selected parentage having  been mated by the drones that were  brought with them.  By continuing the work it is hoped  to develop a strain of Italian bees  that will be heavy honey producers  and disinclined to swarm. Meanwhile plans are advanced to distribute to Canadian bee keepers a limited number of daughters of the best  of the queens mated on Duck Island  and a system has been worked out by  which a beekeeper will be able to  mate a proportion of the queens he  gets with drones of the samo strain.

Sir John Eaton Says  Ownership Unchanged  Toronto, Dec. 12.���������At a dinner  tonight tendered to the directors of  the T. Eaton Co., by the managers,  Sir John C. Eaton in responce to the  toast to the president, congratulated  the managers on their splended cooperation throughout the year.: Sir  John stated that a rumor had been  frequently brought to his notice to the  effect that the company had changed  ownership. Sir John's reply was characteristic: "There's not enough money  in fche whole world to buy my father's  name," This was received with cheers  and tremendous applause. Sir John expressed his conviction that all could  look fordward with confidence to 1921  After short addresses interspersed  with glees and songs, the diners adjourned to the company's managers' clubroom in the King Edward  hotel. Here was unveiled a portrait  of Timothy Eaton,painted by E. Wy-  ley Grier, R.C.A., and presented to  Sir John by the managers of departments, store, mail order and factories,  Improving  The Bees  THE WEATHER  The following is the minimum  and maximum temperature for each  day during the past week, as recorded by the government thermometer on E.

With  bees, however, not much- progress  has yet. been made because of the  great difficultyin isolating them They  mate in.the air at some distance from  the hive and it is known that the  drone bee will fly for miles in search  of the queen bee.  It might be thought that the busy  bee could hardly be improved but  Canada-confcaines varieties of solitary  bees whose tireless industry make a  honey bee appear dilatory in comparison. Besides we 'know that, great  improvements await the bee breeder  because some colonies store much  more honey and are less inclined to  swarm than- others. Any bee keeper  would give much to have his. apiary  composed of such superior bees,  Tho Experimental Farms Branch  of the Dominion Goverment has for  some time been conducting experiments to overcome the difficulty of  the isolated mating of bees. Tho first  attempt was made on-a large sandy  plain near Kazubazua about forty  miles north of Ottawa at a spot whero  no colonies of bees could bo found  within three miles; but the young  bees produced were dark colored,  showing that the queen had been mated  by the local black dronos. Attempts  were then made to mate the queens  late in tho when tho undesirable  drones had ceased flying and also late  in tho season when those drones had  died. The results gavo valuable information but thoy did not solve the  problem.  Next a part of the north country  that bees have not yet reached was  tried,   tho   Experimental   Farm at  Two submarines purchased in the  United States at the sutbreak of war  and used'for a time on the Pacific!  coast, and the former Canadian cruis  er Niobe, were recently Bold by tender at Ottewa. They were purchased  by the New Brunswick Rolling Mills  and will be scrapped. The Niobe, in  all probability, officiale of the rolling  mills have announced, will be left  here until the spring. The submar  ines were towed around from Esquimau by way of the Panama Canal,  following the conclusion of hostilities  The submarines referred to in the  above despatches are the two famous  vessels which were purchased on behalf oj the Dominion Goverment by  Sir Richard Mcbride a few days previous to the declaration of war. The  submarines had been constructed in  a Seattle shipyard for the Chilean  government and were being heldpend  ing the settlement of terms of payn  ment. During the war the submarines  were employed on patrolling duty as  part of the coast defence system of  the Pacific coaet, although it was  affirmed after the armistice had been  signed they were unprovided with  torpedoes and were otherwise more  in the naturn of a bluff than a material addition to the defence forces  of the Dominiou.  A Modern Arabian  ���������    NiPhts Tale  Victoria, Dec 9.���������A Victorian,  who was an officer in tho C.E.F., has  just been advised that a wealthy  Londoner with whom he formed a  friendship during tho war, has died,  leaving him nearly a million dollars  and a house in a fashionable part ^f  London. The lucky man declines to  allow his name to bo published.  The friendship which has had this  surprising sequel was started when  the Victorian, in London on sick  leave, fainted in the street and was  picked up and taken to the Londoner's home in tho lattcr's motorcar.  The Canada Copper Corporation  closed their mine at Copper Mountain on Thuisday, December 9, and  the mill at Allenby will close down  Saturday or as soon as the work of  cleaning up can be properly carried  out. Already nearly all the men have  left fhe mine and those who remain  are engaged In the work of putting it  into such shape that everything will  be in proper condition when the time  comes for operations to be resumed.  The official announcement regarding the cause of the shut-down iB as  follow:  "Owing to the low price of copper,  which has been gradually dropping  for ihe past few weeks until it has  reached an alarmingly low figure, it .  has become necessary to close down  the mine and plant at Copper Mountain and Allenby  " The Canada Copper Corporation    -  is in a position to operate at as low    ;-,  copper price as any other company  and if the price tends upwards to '  such figure as will, concordant with   -  the present cost of supplies and scaler*"' " S  pi-wagejsi^llowJBe companyjamaklftitf:1 i:C -.  a fair, profit,) operations -will;- be \ re-. ���������  sumed.   t -, ',_...  While the official statement d.ces  not set any definite- length' of "time  for the shut-down, it will probably  fast until spring.  Latest reports from the copper  market in New York quotes the  price of the metal at 14 cents f.o.b.  refinery which is the lowest price  since 1915, when it touched 12.80.  The officials of the company making  this sale state they are willing to sell  copper delivered into January at 14  cents and a quarter of a cent higher  for later deliveries.  Other companies quote.at 14.75  for the first three months of 192L"  Most of the single men employed   '  at the mine have already gone away  but the married men  appear  to  be ���������  undecided yet as to what they will  do. There will only bo a watchman '  kept on at the mine and also at the  mill.  The office of the company will  remain opon for a short time.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1920  Here is an efficacious cure for a common ailment. When you meet some one who is affected with swelled  head���������something likely  to  happen  to you. any day���������just advise him to  take his swelled to  some crowded street or  public meetiug, and ask him  these questions:  "How.many present know  me?  How many  have ever heard of me and  my work?   If I  should get killed right now, how many in the  crowd would miss me? My work is so important to me that I haven't time to be neighborly.' I wonder if it is of such importance that  all these people would be thrown out of their  stride if I should drep?" We know that  this  prescription will work, because we've used it.  Thunder can be heard at no greater distance at most than eighteen miles and gener  ally not more than nine miles. The duration  of the lougest roll of thunder that has been  accurately noted was forty-five seconds. In  the recent war the explosion of shells and the  noise of the big guns in France and Belgium  were heard in the eastern part of England, at  distances up to one hundred and fifty miles.  It is a wonder that some one had not thought  of the plan before, soon to go into effect in  Ohio, of putting small telephone booths along  the roads of the state, one at' every milestone,  for. the convenience of traelers. Iustead of  having to tramp to the nearest farmhouse, the  stranded motorist or teamster will be always  within half a mile of a telephone, by which he  can summon help.  Everyone knows that sitting in a moving  train while another train passes will produce  in a passenger a sensation of moving backward. When a person swims with the wind,  and therefore with the waves, which travel  faster than he can possibly swim, he gets the  same sensation; that is, he thinks the undertow'is carrying him out. The result is often an  attack of panic, in which the swimmer exhausts himself and sinks.  Inexperienced persons who carry a- modern  hunting rifle into the woods assume a serious  responsibility. The hope of game,' a moving  object not clearly seen", an impulsive shot, and  the deed is done. There is another hunting  tragedy, another burden of shame and: regret  to be shouldered by one who a. few moments  before thought he was alert and careful.  The remains of what is described as the  largestand most mysterious land auimal that  ever walked the earth have been found'in  Baluchistan. The creature was probably more  like a rhinoceros than like any other animal, of  today, but it had a neck that suggests that of  ..the.giraffe. Two of the neck bones, compared  with Similar bones of the largest previously  known land animals, make them look small  and nothing but dynamite or a stump puller  could have drawn one of its teeth;  Builders and electrical experts have . designed a house in which all labor s efficiently*  done by mechanical means. The aim is to  provide a servantless house that any woman  can manage without drudgery. The complete  electrical fixtures and wiring cost from $1200  to $1500 and include an amazing list  of mechanisms, ranging from a cake mixer to  machine that does the family washing.  In company with other foreigners, Americans who are living in England are subject  both to the British income taxes arid to those:  of their own country, an expensice predica-  ment'from which there seems to be no imme-i  diate escape. The report of the British commission on income tax, which has just appeared, says that the commission can not recommend any change in the taxation of an income  both by the government ofthe United Kingdom and by the government of a foreign state,  and that foreigners  who are liviug abroad  should continue to  be taxed on their British income at the full standard rate  allowances or reliefs.  For thdse who would learn how to write  English -there are the examples of Samuel  Johnson, 1709:1784, and Benjamin -Franklin,  1706-1790. Both gave their lives not-only to  letters 'but to affairs, and both were honest  and high-minded. Johnson wrote "literary  English/' resonant, sonorous, even flowing, in  long antithetical sentences* Franklin wrote in  the'language of the people���������familiar words  and short, immediate, homely sentences. Today Johnson is known chiefly because he is  the stibject of the greatest biography ever  written, but Franklin is studied as a master Of  forcible living English. .  Commercially America goes headlong into  a crash. Nearly ten million workmen are out  of employment, factories are closing and near-'  ly all industries are stagnant. Fifty per cent  of the woolen spindles are idle and the- wool-  growers of the west are clamoring for a market. The farmers who held their wheat for a  better than a $2 price will be fortunate if they  are uot forced to sell at less than a dollar per  bushel. Industrial stagnarion and business  paralysis is the tone of the commercial bulletins. We seize the opportunity to advise all  our business .leaders to buy conservatively and  prepare for bed-rock market prices. With this  downward crash there comes, as nsual, the  evidence of business lethargy and a lack of  confidence, which make conditions worse than  they otherwise would be.���������Keller Eagle,  Last spring two  San  Francisco men who  had already killed deer,  black  bear,   wildcat  and mountain lion with the bow and   arrow  went into the mouutajns of Wyoming Aiith an  expcrieuced guide and killed five grizzlies with  the same primitive weapon. Their success and  the killing power of a heavy barbed arrow so  impressed  the guide' that he,  too, has now  adopted the bow as his  own hunting weaporj.  His reasons are that it gives the game abcttcjj.  Industry and Efficiency  There are only two sureties of individual sue  ���������cess or collective prosperity. These are indus  try and efficiency. In all the world there is  nothing more contemptible than laziness.  Who takes the wages and grudges the service  without[is a poor creature. To have money and leisure  and do nothing for the community is social  and national treason. Even the gods are busy  with the destinies of mankind. The man who  creates a great industry, turns raw material  into finished products and employs labor at  good wages is a public benefactor even though  he amasses wealth in the process. In these  days the labor leader who organizes workmen  to demand higher wages but neglects to emphasize the need of efficiency and greater production, puts a class interest before the general interest. So does the farmer who reduces production in order to increase prices,  or the manufacturer who uses a tariff to secure an unreasonable margin of profit. There  is a statement by W. A. Appleton, secretary  of the English Federation of Trades Unions  and president of the International Federation  Trade Unions, which one would like to have  posted in every shop, factory- and post office  in Canada, read from every pulpit, and printed  on the first page of every newspaper. "Everything depends," he says, "upon production.  Standards of living can not be raised, nor can  existence be maintained unless mankind accepts this contention. Eloqnenoe, rhetoric or  legislative action, whether acting sepaaately or  collectively, can not make the corn grow or  build houses, or feed children, or clothe humanity. Only working and thinking can provide the things essential to life and comfort.',  Gities and Provinces  Must First Tackle Own  Out of Work Problems  Ottwa, Dec. 16.���������Telegrams  have been    received   at   the  Premier's    office   from ' various  sources/ including one  from. Mayor Gale of Vancouver, asking the federal government to suthorize the starting  of some   measure  of public  works in order to relieve  unemployment.    In    all   these  cases it is understood that the  reply is being  sent  that the  Dominion   Goverment  holds  to  the position   it took in its  interviw with the  representatives  of the  great War Veterans and other organization,  which was to  the effect that  unemployment relief was first  a matter for the municipalities  and provinces to institute, and  that the  federal  government  would shortly be in a position  to  announce what  measures  it was prepared to take in cooperation with them.  SEED GRAIN  DISTRIBUTION  Officially Dead Soldiers  Form New Organization  "Officially dead, but not  lying down," is the slogan  adopted by the unique war organization-composed of 2,000  former soldiers who have been  reported by the government as  either "among the missing or  killed in action." The club  has been started by Judge  Mack of the Court of Common Pleas of Cincinnati,  who was himself reported  "killed in action," and whose  return caused him - many humorous moments which were  thefounding of the club.  ���������'��������� The club is a national organization, and New York  has a branch of a hundred or  more members, ���������   .

Spring wheat (in about 51b.-sample's), white oats (about 4 lb ),|barley  (about 5 lb.), field peas (about 5 lb.),  field beans (about 2 lb.), flax (about  2 lb.)  Only one sample can be sent to  each applicant.  Applications must be on printed  form, which may be obtained by writing to the Dominion cerealist, Experimental Farm, Ottawa, at any time  after September 1.  As the stock of seed is limited,  farmers are advised to apply early to  avoid disappointment. Those who applied too late last season are particularly requested to send in their names  at once, so that application forms may  be forA\arded to them. No application  forms will be furnished after February 1, 1921.  Ice making in the skating rink  was commenced this week.

In  this  pamphlet   the   currant, gooseberry,  raspberry,    blackberry, ��������� dewberry,  and loganberry are treated   in  such  a  way  as to   m'ake  clear the best  practice iu their cultivation  and  to  understand the merits of the  different worthy varieties    It  is pointed  out   that  the   ourrant, gooseberry  and raspberry grow wild   almost   if  not quite to the  Arctic circle.   The  treatise is the resuit of experiments  carried  on   at  the Central Experimental farm and the widely separa-i  ted branch farms and stations. This  publication,  which   is    designated  Bulletin No. 94 and is  available at  the publications branch of   tbe department of   agriculture,   contains  also a treatise on- common disease's  of-bush-fruits and-the insects affecting them, with the methods of control.  52  At tbe Central Experimental farm  the average yield of the Herbert  aaspberry for two years on one row  ninety feet in length was at the  rate of 205 bushels per acre. Under  field conditions, cultivated raspberries produce from 50 to 100  bushe.ls of crop per acre, according  to the season. Gooseberries at .40  pounds per bushels yielded at the  rate of 909 bushels to the acre. Red  currants gave . 202 bushels to the  acre in one instance and 409 in ana  other, These figures are taken from  a' new builetin issued by the Experimental farms at Ottawa on the  What Shall I Give?

It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country?   Name,  them   and you   will notice  that all are Big advertisers  and all are leaders in  their  lines.   Ask youi" friends  to  name the  most   successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same- rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  <������$  tanks of  MIIMIlMMBJMBIfMMWMMMffl  zmmflmmmmmmm/mmmmmmmmmmmmt&m  mmmmmrmm  nmimMKummmiamuummsisim <s  GSAND   FORKS,   B.
