There was no  reply and no visible improvement in  the boy's appearance, uniil ablast the  mother, driven to desperation, sent  the teaches a long letter saying,  among other things:  "What is it to the touchers whether  . .       t       the children   in their  schools have a  Links  in  This District bofch  once a dayj or once a week or  Government Call for Tenders   to    Build    Three  During Present Season  Victoria, May 18.���������The provincial government has now entered on  the final part of its policy of completing the provincial highway, according to Hon. Dr. J. H. King,  minister of public works, as he- set  out.,on.-an inspection tour of the  work that is being done on the highway system.  The minister yesterday called for  tenders for the completion of the  gaps in the provincial highway. The  sections are Rossland to Paulson,  Thrnms to Brilliant, the Osoyoos  Hill link, Kuskanook to Sirdar,,the  Revelstoke west road.  Tenders also were called yesterday  for the Coal Harbor road, from  Hardy bay on Vancouaer island.  Dr. King will be away until the  end of May.

I ask you, Do  do you remember this clause of instructions you had given you when  you entered the police force?  Norgrove���������A. Yes.  A. Clause 2'of the Prohibition act  was to be enforced to the letter. Post  yourself thoroughly on this act and  rigidly enforce it in all its details  Q. Do you know anything of  the  Made Supreme Sacrifice  D. C. Coleman,NewPresi-  dent, Says the Road Is  to Operate Independent  of the C.P.R.  The report of the Granby Consoli  dated Mining, Smelting & Power  company for the six months ended  December 31 last, to be mailed soon,  will show a production of 11,260,585  pounds of copper, 670,489 ounces of  silver, aud 9697 ounces of gold, says  a New York report. About half of  the silver came from the customs  ores.  The net cost of copper f.o b. at the  smelter was 14.2 cents a pound, and  delivered it was 16.7 cents. The  capital investments were increased  $501,000 during the six months and  the current liabilities 6441,000,leaving $60,000 for addition to the net  surplus.  The gross profits were $599,3S7.  The necessity of paying retroactive  Dominion and provincial war profits  \axes, as well as interest on other  taxes, contributed greatly toward  reducing^net profits.  The Hidden Creek property is  now being operated at between two-  thirds and four-fifths capacity. The  Phoenix mine in tbe Boundary district has been temporarily abandoned, but tbe Grand Forks smelter  is being kept in condition for resumption when conditions permit.  All thirty coke ovens at Anyox are  now m operation.  Except for the power plant at  Anyox, capital expenditures' are  about corjopleted, it was said, until  a concentrator for treating tbe oom-  pan-y's low grade Hidden Creek ores  becomes necessary.  At the annual meeting  held   last  week the retiring board of directors  was re elected.    The six months' re  port is issued in an  interim   period  D. C.

Flumerfelt of Victoria.  Mr. Coleman stated that the  change of directorate did not mean  that the C.P.R. was taking over the  Kettle Valley, which w*ould continue  to be operated as in the past, as an  independent road, except   that   the  The monthly meeting of   the I O  D.E. was held-in the chapter rooms  on Thursday, with fifteen   members  present.  The treasurer's report showed a  balance of $189.15.  A discussion took place regarding  a delegate to the National annual.  It was the unanimous wish of the  meeting that the regent should represent the chapter at the annual in  Calgary at the end of this month.  Mrs. Kingston did not refuse, but  for private reasons could not promise  to. go.. In the event that she could  not attend, it was suggested that  Mrs. Hazell, a prominent member  of the I O.D E.in Vancouver,should  be asked to represent the Grand  Forks chapter.  The regent was appointed to in  terview   the   school   board and ask  them to see that the flags given  by  the LO.

Arrangements were made for the same,  the dates being Thursday and Friday, May 20 and 21.

The meeting closed with the singing  of the national anthem.  CHIEF NORGROVE  DISMISSED; PARK  SUCCEEDS HIM  Good, absent minded, old Dr. Wilder was greatly dependent upon his  practical wife. Que morning Mrs,  Wilder sent up an announcement after he had entered the pulpit with a  footnote intended to be private.  "The Women's Missionary society,"  he road aloud, "will meet Wednesday  afternoon, at 3 o'clock  sharp. Your  to make the fiscal and calendar necktie is crooked; please straighten  years alike. (toward the right."  At a meeting of the police commissioners Saturday night, at which  Mayor Acres and Commissioners  Taylor and Liddicoat were present,  Chief of Police Norgrove was dismissed from office. At a meeting  Wednesday evening Richard Park  was appointed to fill the vacancy, at  a salary of $125 per month and two  suits of clothes per year, and at another meeting last night. Mr. Park's  appointment was confirmed and the  oath of office waa administered.  The cause assigned for Chief Nor-  grove's dismissal is made clear by  the proceedings at the first j meeting.

"..>���������...���������.'  Q I consider that a man who is  shipping this quantity of liquor into  the city is not a fit man to enforce  the Prohibition act; and thatit seems  to that one of two reasons must be  given, either that thie man must be  using it for himself or for other purposes. I am giving this information  to the board, that on May 3 ten  cases of liquor arrived at the. express  office, and on the 4th of May Mr.  Norgrove received them. It is my  opinion that a man importing such  a quantity of liquor is no fit man to  enforce the Prohibition act, and  therefore I move that he be dismissed immediately.  Moved by Liddicoat, seconded by  Taylor, that Chief of Pol ice Norgrove  be dismissed immediately.   Carried.  Norgrove and Liddiooat���������Q.  Where did you get   your   informa-  A. From the express company's  books.  Q. There is a clause in the statutes  that I can draw your attenion to.  (Norgrove refers the board fo Sec.  57, Chap. 49, of the Prohibition act,  page 196 in the statutes of the prov  ince of British Columbia, 1916).  Act read by Mayor Acres.  Norgrove���������I think I am allowed  to ship in what I wish to my owu  private dwelling house.  A. The board does not consider  that a man with that quantity of  liquor in his house can give satisfaction to the board,.and we are dissatisfied.  Taylor���������Not only that, but we  have proved to my own satisfaction  that there is gambling and drinking  going on which has escaped the  chief. People have told me about it.  Also, there has been importing going  on that has been allowed to go on  without anything being done.  Norgrove���������Did you bring anyone  with you to prove these things?  Taylor���������I did not.  Liddicoat���������Have you had any  more liquor come in?  Norgrove���������I will answer none of  your questions, Mr. Liddicoat.  Norgrove���������I should like to ask  Mr. Liddicoat if he has ever seen me  under the influence of liquor.  Liddicoat���������Forfunately,   I   have  not.  Norgrove���������I should like to ask  Mr. Taylor if he has ever seen me  under the influence of liquor.  Taylor���������I hare not.  Norgrove���������Have you anyone that  you could briog to prove what you  said before?  Taylor���������I did not ask them to  come here, as they did not wish to  appear before the board, but I wanted to find out if these things were  carried out. ,  Norgrove���������Whojdid you ask?  Taylor���������I refuse to give names.

It  is expected-that at this meeting considerable light will be thrown on  many questions affecting this district.  Mayor Acres���������I do not think you  should take this���������if a man comes to.  you and tells these things and is uu"/  willing to give evidence.  Taylor���������I wanted to find out for  myself. People have come to me and  told me different things and Iasked  them to prove their statements.  Liddicoat���������I can .say Ihe. same  thing. I have heard reports that 1  paid_no attention to. '____'  Mayor Acres���������I heard last ~year '  that there was an occasion pool  game. This year we did not ask the  chief about it, and he has said noth  ing. It is pretty hard for a man in  a position like his. As regards this  liquor business, that man last Saturday night who was arrested by  Mr. Staufield. At that time the  chief was iu Columbia. I said after  that 1 lUought mat it would be as  well to search, which was done. As  far as I can see, he carried out hits  duties.  Taylor���������If we wish a change can  we get it?  Mayor Acres���������1 have nothing to  say to that, you know. 1 can only  say that as regards the liquor in his  possession the act does not state the  amount you have or may have, and  I have never seen the chief under  the influence of liquor. Is there a  contract whereby there is a period  of time given before dismissal?  Mr. Hutton reads   Section   414,  1914 Municipal act.  ���������Margaret Graham,Stenographer.

The above sentence summarizes the cause. But for the fortuate discovery  by a passing policeman at 11 o'clock at night,  a valuable manufacturing plant would have  been in ruins, a large number of employees  would have been out of work, and considerable time would necessarily have elapsed before operations could be renewed. Criminal  carelessness was only offset by fortunate circumstances. A few minutes later and the fire  would have made sufficient headway to ensure  a complete less. The 1919 amendment to the  Criminal Code provides that "Everyone is  guilty of an indictable offence and liable to two  years' imprisonment who by negligence causes  any fire which occasions loss of life or loss of  property."  It is just as foolhardy now to tamper with  great natural forces as it was when such meddling was considered as sacrilegious. Recently  a moving picture actress was killed and several of her party were seriously injured when  an imitation avalanche in Switzerland, which  was to have appeared to bury them in a pictured, turned into a real avalanche that did  bury them.  In deciding to use again the names of ships  that were sunk during the war the Cunard  line defies an old superstition of seafaring  men. Sailors used to regard it as exceedingly  unlucky to give a ship the name of one that  had been lest.  ^������11$  DAMAGED GLASSES  need not be thrown away.

Its surroundings should be agreeable, especially in  the summer, when so much of our time is  spent in the open.

In many portions  of Canada wild shrubs, vines and flowers may  be secured, and the cooling effect of these will  be appreciated during the warm weather.  The present season should be utilized to give  attention to this feature of making home a  real home, and an asset to the community.  The initiation of an improvement by one citizen is very often the incentive to many, with  the result that the entire district is benefited.  The commercial effect of the war and its  cessation Is strikingly exemplified in the whale  fisheries of the Pacific coast. Due to the food  shortage and the demand for oils and fats,  whale fishing was actively carried on. During  the 1918 season, over 500 whales were taken  by three fishing stations; the catch of one station alone was 246. During the same year  30,000 cases of whale meat was canned and  met a ready market. The close of ihe war,  however, meant the complete cessation of the  whale canning industry; no whale meat was  put up in 1919. Only one whaling station was  in operation, and but 166 whales were taken.  Whale meat is a nutritious food product, in  taste being similar to beefsteak. It was placed  on the market at a price of 20 cents per pound  tin, and rilled a requirement for a food supply  m low cost. As a war measure the taking of  500 whales in one season could be justified,  but a continuance of killing on this extensive  scale would result in the annihilation of this  great mammal.

Carrying a grand piano by aeroplane from a  London store to a customer in France was  only a spectacular feat, done for the advertisement. No one thinks seriously of establishing an aeroplane line to carry grand pianos;  but mejchandise of many kinds is transported  across the channel every day by aeroplanes  that run on a regular schedule. A British  aeroplane company has received an offer of  five dollars an ounce to bring from Shanghai  to London certain essences that are used in  manufacturing perfumes; London papers are  delivered regularly in distant cities by aeroplanes; passenger aeroplane lines" are announced between New York and Atlantic  City, between Los Angeles and San Diego  and be.tw.egB~���������a-eu-ta^fi^^^^ mention  no others; and tickets are already on sale for  aeroplane trips from London to Rio de Janeiro.  Although Lady Astor is the first woman to  enter the British parliament after a contest,  she is by no means the first woman to occupy  a seat there. In the reign of the Norman and  the Plantagenet monarchs peeresses in their  own right and abbesses at the head of religious orders were permitted to sit and vote  in parliament. Among those who did so were  the Countesses of Norfolk, Pembroke, Oxford  and Ormonde, and the Abbesses of Wilton,  Shaftesbury and St. Mary of Winchester.  However, in answer to the writ of summons  from the crown the peeresses and the abbesses  gradually began to send men to represent  them.  C. V.

With reference to the latter's state  ment intimating that the premier  had made a private arrangement to  the effect that the major should be  appointed for a term of ten years at a  salary of $7500 a year, the premier  turned up the act passed at the 1919  session of the provincial legislature to  show that it was therein provided that  the term of oificc.of the commissioner  to be ti.u,med.should be,ten_v'VV^_4i.t,.a  salary not less than 86000 nor more  than 87000, the commissioner to be  removable for cause.

Curiously,.enough, the. first thing,  that occurred to me as J fell was the  saying that people review their who'c  lives while they are falling from preci  pices. The next was that '-evidently  ] was falling into a crevasse'arid that  it did not seem right that an Arctic  explorer should fall into a crevasse.  which is. the. special prerogative of  Antarctic-explorers. The next, 111iti������j  that I thought of was that my crevasse  was evidently the result of ice cracking 'under stress It probably occurred  in a gale, and we had' had ..several,one  of them about two. days before, If  this crevasse-was a week old, T should  f\d!'on hard ice. If it was two days  old, I might fall into water, for it was  springtime and ice was forming slow  ly. My ride, which was strapped on  my back, my field glasses, my pouch  of ammunition and several other  things, added to my momentum,  would make me go' down rapidly  should I strike water.  All this cogitating; was done while  1 was dropping fifteen feet; then I  landed on glare ice. I remained mo*  tionless at.first lest I break through  the ice, but after thirty seconds or so  [ decided that if my impact after the  fall had not broken the ice, then  doubtless I "could move without dan  ger of breaking it now.  After getting on all fours and disengaging the broken snowshoes from  my foet, I stood up, although I was  sore in several places'.'.No bones were  broken. Looking up, I could see the  hole through which I had dropped.  Jai_]^-.tli<DyLrnp^^  ed    was   oval, it  was  obvious that a  short walk along the bottom of my  crevasse would bring me out.

BUSINESS c^lfAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put f you in  good company? 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  c.L:v in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities,'and in each case  the name of 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 havings confidence in  himself and his 'wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test, of patronage.  vj_?
