C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2:3, 1914  $1.00 PER YEAR  1  MFFTINP  President W. H, -Nichols of the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power company went on record at the annual stockholders'  meeting in New York with the prediction that the Hidden Creek ��������� property would develop into the lowest  cost copper producer in   the   world.  About a dozen stockholders attended the session, which voted to  reduce the number oLdirectors from  fourteen to thirteen, thereby elimin-  ��������� ating the- vacancy caused by the  death of George M. Luther, former  president. Other directors were reelected.  ���������Asked about-dividend prospects,  ' President Nichols said the matter  wad dependent upon the war situa-'  'tion and that if war continued for  any length of time very few copper  'mining companies would be able to  . continue on dividend-basis.  s  "There'is less copper in the svorld  now than for some years," he said.  "But there is less being used. When  tha war clouds roll over I believe  there will be'a heavy demand for  the metal, and for a while at least  there" will " not be enough to go  around." " ..  The stockholders voted approval  of issuance of $960,000 Series A convertible 6 percent bonds, made to  take- care of an equal ampuntof  unsecured loans whieh fell due   last  ' year.    Half of the bonds were.taken.  . by the .American Metal company  and the' remainder by individuals  interested in the  company's   devel-  ��������� opment.

Granby sold 23,320,097 pounds of  copper at an average price of 14.58  cents a' pounds; 335.275 . ounces of  .silver'atL57.74 cents an ounce and  43,882 ounces of gold at $20. It cost  the company Hi cents, to produce  its copper, after.crediting precious  metal recoveries. On June 30 the  company had 81,375,794 in cash  and copper.  , The Snowshoe mine added 140,-  000 tons to reserves, while drilling  and other development work increased this by 142,684 tons. At  Phoenix there were 4,691,531 tons  of developed ore at- the fiscal year  end. The Grand Forks smelter  smelted 1,225,145 tons of ore, yielding 21,181,000 pounds of copper,  407,560 ounces of silver and 43,232  ounces of gold. The smelting and  converting cost was $1.28 a ton;  the operating mine cost of ore  shipped was 80 cents.  General Manager Sylvester gives  the Hidden Creek' property 9,563,-  500 tons of 2.2 per cent copper ore,  an increase of 1,803,950 tons dur-  ing"the year. In addition there is  an estimated tonnage of 8,589,500  tons   of   ,6   per   cent ore, much of  which carries from 1 per cent to   1������  per cent copper.  The Midas, near Valdez, Mamie  at Madley and Dean mine on Prince  of Wales island, Alaska, have been  purchased-xluring the year, while an  option was taken on the It mine  near the Dean. Working' options  were also taken on old mines north  of Vancouver.  The various properties have ore in  sight as follows:  Phoenix, 4,691,531 tons; Anyox,  18,153,000; Midas, 116,344; Mamie,  135,200; It-Dean, 5000; total, 23,-  101,075.  The Phoenix recovery averages 17  pounds copper, .033 ounces of gold  and .2 ounces of silvea. , Anybx averages 18,153,000 tons of 1 per cent  copper.or 9.563,000 tons of 2 2"percent copper, while gold and silver  will total 30 cents a ion. Mining cost  will 'average $1 a ton, against SO  cents for Phoenix. Midas ore averages 4 per cent copper, .065 ounces  gold and .46 ounces silver This can  be mined and delivered for 82 a ton.  The Mamie will average 2������ per cent  copper and 25 to 50 cents gold and  silver. It ore should run $15 to 820  a ton.  Granby has divided its properties  iutofour operating units���������southeastern British Columbia, British Columbia coast, southwest Alaska from  Skagway west, and southern Alaska.  Each district will have a local superintendent.. ���������_ "  The Anyox smelter, the new plant  at Hidden-Creek,-should be able to  produce'2,400,000 pounds of copper  monthly, according to' muuagement  plans, or at the rate of 28,800,000-  pounds a year. This statement was  made by-President Nichols to stuck  holders at their annual meeting.  There has been spent on new construction about 83,000,000,and while  this work has but ended, a new re  vcrberatory furnace may be added  to the Anyox smelter. The existing,  units may eventually be enlarged to  handle a greater tonnage of ore than  now planned for.  /The policy of expansion, adopted  several years ago, will be continued.  In addition to the acquisition of the  Midas, Mamie and Dean mints and  the working option on the It mine,  near the Dean, the company has  other properties under examination,  some of which are expected to develop satisfactorily..  The Midas and Mamie mines  could have been prepared for shipments by October 1, but work was  suspended pending improved copper  market conditions.  The Anyox investment now stands ; lions  at 82,888,737, against ������2,038,186 on  June   30,    1913.    The mines lately  purchased and now under   development cost the company 8468,135.

Don't be like the sick man who  heard of the curative properties of the  waters of Carlsbad and went there to  L:>.ke them. After Ire arrived he consulted a physician who carefully diagnosed his case and then told him that  his particular ailment would respond  better to-the waters of a certain spring  in America. "Which . spring?"..'asked  the patient. "One-of the springs in  Saratoga," replied the doctor. "That's  certainly tough," said the sufferer. "I  live in Albany."

Ontario Fish Breeding  Canada already does a good deal" of  scien till ".fish farming, especially of  commercial fish such as salmon. We  are informed that the province of Ontario has for two years been stocking  its own bass fingerlings for-stocking  purposes.   This has been done by the  - use of breeding ponds, where hundreds of thousands of fingerlings have  been bred. They are taken to the various lakes which are to be re-stocked  and there they are deposited. The  jisliing has been so good that $20,884  ��������� was paid by non-residents for licenses  to fish i.L Ontario waters last year.  The experiment with bass having  .been so successful, the government  is extending its work of propagation  by erecting a trout hatchery at.Mount  Pleasant, Brant county, where the  bass ponds are located, and hopes.to  be in a position to distribute several  million by next season, pr6viding~in;  this way additional sport for residents of the province and further in-"  ducements for visitors.  . The value of the commercial fisheries have increased from $1,708,063 in  1305 to $2,842,887 in 1912,;   ;|; ;;.,__;:.,  the  Physical     Conditions    Often  -at  Mercy of  Mental  Attitudes  A scientist writes: "A woman fancied she had swallowed a frog and  was rapidly sinking. The efforts of  physicians failed to.afford her relief.  It occurred to some one that she might  be deluded into health. A tiny,frog  was caught and put into a tube with  which they were attempting to wash  out her.stomach. When the' frog was  thrown out of the tube the girl expressed relief and said she hoped they  were satisfied her complaints had a  real foundation. In a short time she  was restored to health. This is only  one of the instances in which the mind  has affected the physical condition.  "No one doubts that persons have  been frightened to death, and ridicule  in statements of this kind should end.  The influence of the mind is a subject,  which calls for investigation and  study. There is no question that mental agitation aggravates, if it does not  cause, disease. Many a child droops  and dies because it feels it is unappreciated and neglected."' Many who i  survive drag out a miserable existence i  instead of being full of hope aud joy  and energy, promise and pleasure and  making themselves useful in the  world.!'���������New 'York Press.      - .'���������'.  Birth Rate Throws Light onHhc War  Interesting vital' statistics- recently  compiled by the Department of Health  of the United States in regard to the  birth' rale of the large cities of the  world were issued recently, according t i which Germany, during the  years 1880 tol������!)3, inclusive, leads the  world.    The report says in part:  "From the statistics prepared by  the department, Berlin in ' 18S0 had  the highest birth rate of the cities of  the world, namely, 40 births per 1,000  of. population. From 18S0 to 1893,  despite a gradual decline in its birth  rate, Berlin retained its lead. In 1S93.  however, London forged ahead, and.in  1894 New York: and London both had  a higher birth  fate  than  Berlin.  "It.is clear that the enormous birth  rate between 1S80 and 1893 still  shows its effect in'the present German army, for all of these individuals  are -now about twenty-four years  old, and therefore constitute the flower of the hghtiug force.

Potato Juice  Cure  Potato juice as a remedy for sprains,  lumbago, gout, rheumatism and  bruises is ������recommended by Dr. Hea-  ton C. Howard of London in an article  in the London Lancet. Pie cites numerous cases in his own practice in  which the ^ pain has been relieved  quickly, sometimes by the first, application, and the fluid that has exuded into the joint or the membrane has  been absorbed within a few days.  Potato juice is used as an ointment,  a liniment or a plaster. The raw potatoes are squeezed in a hydraulic press.  The starch and nitrogenous matter are  removed and the juice boiled down until it is made five times as strong as  when fresh. Glycerin is added to pre  serve it.

For instance,  every subject of the king has an insurable interest in the king's life,  and may insure him. A creditor can  legally insure the life of a debtor for  the amount of the debt, and, even  when the'debt is paid, the creditor  may lawfully continue the insurance.  An employer of labor can insure the  lives of his workers, the insurable interest, which alone makes the policies  legal, being that he is liable fop fatal  injuries received in the course of their  ���������work. Mere relationship does- not  create an insurable interest. Husbands  and wives can insure each other, and  a child can insure its father; but a  brother cannot, generally speaking, insure his brothers and sisters. Life policies can be sold or assigned, with notice to the. company and an acknowledgement, but fire-policies are not  transferred without the company's  consent.  .     Personal   Property  A Cleveland attorney took the Med  iterranean trip a month ago. It was  his first time across the water, and he  stated on his return that he would  have had a perfectly glorious time but  for the silly questions asked him Dy  customs officials.^  It was on the pier at New York  that his woes came to a climax. "Open  your trunk, please," commanded the  custom house officer. "Have you anything in there'but personal property?"  he continued. ���������*  "What do you mean by personal  property?" counted the lawyer.  "For heaven's sake! Don't you know  what personal property is?" The officer looked up in amazement.  "I thought.I did," answered the attorney, "and I can assure you that  there is no real estate in my trunk."  ���������Cleveland Plain Dealer.  Minard's  Liniment Cures  Dandruff.  W. N.

An old law in Carmiwinen county,  in Wales, required that every conveyance passing over the turnpike toll  roads should be plainly marked with  the name of the owner so that the perpetrator of any lawlessness could be  easily detected.  One y mug farmer known as Stammering Jim was sumrno.ied before a  magistrate, who demanded why his  name did :iot appear on his two wheeled cart.  "YV-w-whose n-n-name am I to put  on?" stammered the defendant.  "Your own, of course," said the magistrate.  "B-b-but it isn't my cart, your worship," says Jim.  "Who is the owner, then?" demanded the squire.  "T-t-tliat's the t-t-troub'e, sir," said  Jim.

There were no funds available  for this work from which to employ a  worker; but 29 years ago, Francis E.  Clark gave up the pastorate of the  Phillips Congregational Church, Boston, where h-j had gone from Portland, and through all these yeats he  has given himself to this work, without one penny of salary from the  'Christian Endeavor movement.

COURTESIES  OF  WAR  Christmas Boxes the Boers Dropped  Among the English  When the Boers advanced on Lady-  smith in the Transvaal war the late  Melton Prior was one of the twenty  newspaper correspondents who threw  in'their lot with the English army instead of making, 'the''hurried' retreat  that was still possible. In his book,  "Campaigns of a War Correspondent,"  he tells many interesting incident of  the siege. ^  The enemy succeeded in placing  thirty-two guns on the heights above  the town and kept up such an incessant fire that the troops and civilians  were soon engaged in digging bomb  proof shelters. In a short time they  learned to distinguish :'the different  Boer guns by their sound and gave  them amusing names. Three, of the  large ones they called "Long Tom,"  "Puffing Billy" and "Weary Willie."  Then ��������� there was "Silent .Susan," so  named beca'use. the bursting of a shell  was the first warning we got that it  had been fired. "Bloody Mary," as you  may suppose, was looked upon as a  beast of a gun.  In spite of the havoc that the cannon worked, the soldiers soon greAV  accustomed to the shelling. One- day  the Second Gordon Highlanders were  playing football, when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no  one was hit, and they went on playing.  The Boers were so' interested, apparently, that they gave up firing and  actually sat on the edge of the hills,  watching the game. Then, when it  was all over, the firing' started fresh.  But this was not the only courtesy  the enemy.showed. On.Christmas day  they saluted the happy morn by salvos  of shells. The first two that-fell into  the camps of the carabineers and the  Imperial Light horse did not burst.  When the shells were picked up it was  found that wooden plugs had-beeir"in-  serted in place of the fuses, and inside the shells were plum puddings.  On the outside were the owrds, "With  the  compliments of the season."  Teddy���������"I wish I hadn't licked  Jimmy Brown this morning."

"I really cannot say," was the unexpected answer. "I have never indulged in introspection."  3lackie's  Apology  They tell this delightful story ot  the graud old professor of whom Edinburgh hrs been so proud.  Professor Blackie was lecturing to  a new class with whose acquaintance  he was very imperfectly acquainted.  In answer to some direction given by  the lecturer, a student rose to read  a paragraph, his book in his left hand.  "Sir," thundered Blackie.. "hold  your .book in your right hand." And  as the student would 'have spoken.  "No wcrds, sir! Your right hand, I  say!"  The student held up his- right arm,  ending piteously at the stump,, of its  .wrist.  "Sir, I hae nae richt hand," he said,  and his voice was unsteady.  Before Blackie could open his lips  there arose from the class such a  terrific: storm of hisses as one perhaps must go to Edinburgh to hear,  and by it his voice was overborne as  by a wild sea.  Then the professor left his place  and went down to the student he had  so unwittingly hurt. He put his arm  about "the lad's shoulders' and drew  him close, and the lad leaned up  against his breast and -.looked v > at  him' as though Divinity itself had  stooped in compassion.  "My boy," said Blackie���������he spokd  very softly, yet not so softly but that  every word -was ���������audible.; in' the hush  that had fallen on the class-room���������  "my boy, you'll forgive me that I was  over-rough? I did not know���������I did  not know."  He turned to his students, and, with  a look and tone that came straight  from his heart, he said:  - "And let me say to,you all", I am  rejoiced to be shown'that I am teaching a class of gentlemen."  ���������Scottish lads can cheer as well as  hiss; and that Blackie learned abundantly, then and many a time thereafter.  A Telling Argument  - An old negro, near Victoria, Texas,  who was the old Baptist in the neighborhood, always "stuck up for his own  faith," and was ready with-a-reason  for i������, although he was unable to read  a word. This was the way he "put  'em down."  "Y6' kin read, now, kaint yo'?"  "Yes."  "Well, I s'pose yo' read de    Bible,  haint yo'?"  "Yes."  "Yo'  read  'bout John    de  Baptis',  haint yo'?"  "Yes."  "Well,   yo'  never  read   'bout  John  de Mefodis', did yo"!"  No Rest With Asthma.���������Asthma usually attacks at night, the one time  when rest is needed most. Hence the  loss of strength, the nervous debility,  the loss of flesh and other evils which  must be expected unless relief is secured.. Fortunately relief is possible.  Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy  has proved its merit through years of  service. A trial will surely convince  you. ���������-.'���������'  In the Depths of the Sea  The quantity of light emitted by  many minute deep sea animals is so  great as to supply over definite areas  of the sea bottom a sufficient illumination to render visible the colors of  the animals themselves. Some cepha-  lopods are furnished with apparatus  which reflects the light from their  phosphorescent bodies upon the sea  bottom over which they iloat.. This  reflecting apparatus is spoken of as.  "an efficient bullseye lantern for use  in hunting through the abysmal darkness."  Not Very Far  "Here's a dollar back that I marked  and put into circulation only day before yesterday.

This is Holbein's "Field of the Cloth of Gold,"  which after the downfall of Charles I.  Cromwell proposed to sell. But' when  the would-be purchaser came to inspect it he discovered that the head of  Henry VIIT. had been cut from the  canvas. He refused to buy the picture, and it was preserved to the nation. At the restoration a nobleman  confessed to having committed tho  crime for "love of art and country."  He returned the missing head, which  now occupies its original position, the  circle made by the knife in the canvas  being still plainly visible.���������London  Chronicle.

She was familiar with the literature of four or five languages���������Italian, French, Greeic, Latin and Hebrew.  Her knowledge was remarkable, her  conversational powers were brilliant.  It was her bright mind and varied  learning that first attracted the attention of Abelard. Abelard died in 1112.  Heloise in 1164. First buried at St.  Marcel, Abelard's remains wore shifted several times, but finally reached  the welt known tomb at Pere la  Chaise, wherein also rest the ashes of  Heloise.

The provincial ~ department of  agriculture, in accordance with its  policy of the past five years, will  again offer fruit packing schools  during the coming winter. These  packing schools have always been  popular, and we expect that much_  interest will he taken in the work'  this winter. It is hoped that school.-*  will be formed in every- fruit growing district in the province where a  sufficient number of pupils can be  secured \  . -As in previous years, the local ad-  I ministration of the packing schools  will be placed in-the hands of a responsible body, such as the Farmers' institute, the Fruit Growers' association or the board of trade.  The responsible organization in  each case will be required to guar  antee a minimum of twelve pupils,  but not more than fifteen, with the  proper qualifications, at a fee of 83  each, to take the twelve lessons of  two and a half hours a lesson, the  school extending over the week. In  a limited number of districts a  double packing school can be arranged for, in which the minimum  guarantee will be twenty-four pupils, but not more than thirty, for  the same number of lessons.  The hall for fifteen pupils must  be at least 30 feet by 15 feet, and  well lighted. It must be sufficiently  heated to prevent chilling of the  fingers of the packeas and to prevent  freezing oi the fruit at night~.  The. department of agriculture  ptovideB the instructor, and pays  his expenses. The department will  also bear the oust of the packing  paper, the fruit and all other legiti^  mate expenses, except that of the  secretarial work and the rent of the  hall, and its heating and lighting.  The department will as far as  possible "use local fruit. At time of  making application for the packing  school, parties are requested to reserve fruit at the rate of 2������ to 3  boxes per pupil. The harder varieties, such as Ben Davis, are preferred. The fruit must be in good  condition, but need not be graded,  and none shohld run under 2������  inches in diameter. The depart  ment will pay the legitimate market  price as determined by the instructor on inspection.  If local fruit can not be secured,  the department should be expressly  notified and will undertake to secure same.  The instructor will bring with him  the necessary packing tables and  fruit paper. The department expects that he will be met on his arrival by some responsible pprson,  who should provide him with all  necessary information, so as to get  the school under way without loss  of time.  It seems hardly necessary to present to the fruit growers of this dis  trict the important advantages to be  gained from the packing school, particularly in the way of practical and  thorough instruction in actual commercial packing.  Fruit growers will gain, in addition, a good deal of information  about the methods and equipment  used by the most progressive'asso-  ciatione, also about the interpretation of the Fruit Marks act, and  about exhibition packing by attending the packing school for instruction.  Pupils who gain a score of 75 per  cent for efficiency in the packing  school and who put up a creditable  pack for the department prizes" the  Jollnwing autumn, will receive a  diploma certifying to the same from  the departmgnt.

WE ARE INTRODUCING  American Silk  American Cashmere  American Cotton-Lisle  "Three Squares a Day"  In spite of war arid the horrors of  war a vast number of Canadians are  going to need "three squares a "day,"  just as in times of peace. They are  going to need such things as clothing,  fuel, etc.. too, auri a surprising lot of  them will go on buying luxuries as  well.  The bottom hasn't fallen out of  trade. On the contrary a new bot  torn has been put in. Live advertisers are going after the new business,  new markets, new fields made possible  by this great and unfortunate war.  Just as modern methods of warfare,  will add new efficieucy, new features  to this war, so modern methods of  sellidg���������through ival advertising -and  merchandising���������wilt add new effic  iency to' the commercial effort sec in  motion by the war.  American manufacturers have dis  covered-that owing to the shutting off  of German exportations they have- a  brand new market at their doors for  such commodities as chemicals, drugs,  medicines, copper and manufactures,  cotton goods, earthen stone and china-  ware, glass and glassware, malt  liquors, spirits, wines, silk manufactures, fruit and nuts, gloves, embroidery, hats, steel and iron manu  factures, toys. etc.  The American advertisers are readjusting themselves with wonderful  rapidity and are redoubling their efforts to secure new trade heretofore  denied them. Those who hesitate  will lose a tremendous opportunity  and be handicapped for months, per  haps years, to come.  What about us Canadians?

Such is the  I theory put forward in the Journal of  j Natural Science by   Professor Philip  i-Fauth,   a   well    known    astronomer,  whose reputation has rested principally upon his researches into conditions  on the moon.  The novel feature of Dr. Fauth's  theory is that it is based upon the supposition that a great part of the  known solar system, including especially tlie planets Jupiter, Uranus and Saturn, arc not composed of mineral matter at all, but are tremendous masses,'  of ice, or balls of ice surrounding a  jnineral kernel. Furthermore, lie declares, a part of what is now known  as the .Milkv way is not mineral or  g-.scoiis, bid "a ring of ice dust,"  masses of particles of ice suspended  in space, the outer planets receiving  a constant addition to their ice mass  from this source. (  Professor Fauth declares that . the  world already at some remote period  has had a similar experience, resulting  in the death of nearly all animate nature, and that all species of life as we  know it have arisen since then. Eventually tlie planets swinging through  their*narrowing orbits will fall into the  sun, causing a new explosion and perhaps the birth of a new solar system,  but for thousands of years before that  time all life, either on earth or else-  wherer^will have disappeared.���������New  York Sun.

Anaemia.is the doctor's name for lack of blood.    There  may bo an actual loss in the quantity  of the blood, or one or more of its constituents may   be lacking.   Its truest  symptom is pallor.   Anaemia   is particularly common in young girls. It is  not, however, confined to them alone,  for it is this same lack of blood-that  prevents full recovery after la grippe,  fevers, malaria and operations.    Jt is  also present in old ago and in persons  who have been under unusual mental  or physical strain.   If you are-suffering  from  this  trouble take Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. They  make pure, new blood with every dose  and this new blood moans health and  strength.

I felt and looked as if I did  not have a drop of blood in my body.  My heart would palpitate so violently  that I could not walk upstairs without  being completely exhausted. Night after night I would have   to sit up in  bed to get my breath.    I had no appetite and suffered from severe .headaches.   I was taking doctor's medicine  all the time and naturally felt very  much discouraged.

Good Advice  Don't live beyond your Income, no  matter how small it is.  Don't ?ive up to your income. Save  at least 10 per cent, of it every "month  and if possible 40 per cent.  Don't let .money lie idle. It is the  fractions that count. Put every bit of  surplus in a savings bank quickly,  and every time $100 accumulates invest it.  Don't pay for show, but for value re  ceived.���������Louisville Post.  Tho Duke and tl.e Artist  w In "Random Recollections" is this  story of the Duke of Connaught. The  incident happened at Windsor Castle.  The duke was criticising a water color done by JR. Gaton Woodville,*. representing a drummer in the'guards:  "Look here, Mr. Woodville," he'said,  "you have made a mistake in the  mounting of the braiding on this drummer's coat; the fringe on the side of  the chest ought to run in this direction," indicating the line. "I am certain of it, for as a boy I wore the  uniform, but I will show you what -I  mean," and, turning to his A.D.C.,  lie asked him to have the "bugler of  the castle guard sent up. The hugler  came, and the duke, turning toward  him, said: "Now, Mr. Woodville, I will  show you what Ijneait."

This is Major-General Sir Rudolf  Baron von Slatin, better known as  Slatin Pasha, British inspector-general  of the Soudan, who was married in  Vienna recently to the Baroness Alice  von Ramberg, daughter of the late  General of.Cavalry, Victor, Baron von  Ramberg and the Baroness Ottilie von  Ramberg, nee Countess of Breda.  The grandfather of the bride, the  late General George, Baron Ramberg,  when a young captain in the Austrian cavalry, was attached to the personal staff of the Duke of Wellington  at the battle of Waterloo.  Slatin Pasha's career is one of the  most adventurous and romantic on  record. He is fifty-seven-years old,  a native of Vienna, and began life'as  an officer in the Austrian army. In  1876 he visited the Soudan, and in  187S General Gordon appointed him  governor of Darfur.  He was captured by the Mahdi and  kept a prisoner for eleven years.

"One day my sister -substituted a  cup of piping hot Postum ..or my morning cup of coffee but did not tell me  what it was. I noticed the richness  of it and remarked that the 'coffee'  tasted fine but my sistc did not tell  im I was drinking Postt-.u for fear I  might not take any more.  "She kept the secret and kept giving  me Postuni instead of coffee until I  grew stronger, more tireless, got a better color in my sallow cheeks and a  clearness to my eyes, then she told  me of the health-giving, nerve-  strengthening life-saver she had givea  mo in  place of my morning coffee.

THE ST.  LAWRENCE  IS.THE  OLD-  EST   RIVER   IN   THE   WORLD  Nature  Saved  This   Historic and   Un-  " changing Stream the Trouble of Cutting a Channel for Its Course From  the  Great  Lakes to the Sea.  What   is   the  oldest  river"   in  the  world?    The St. Lawrence.   It is also  one  of  the  few  rivers  that did  not  have to- make its own bed and has remained- unchanged since the very beginning of- the'American continent..  Try  to1 think of a time when  the  earth was covered by a mass of water,  hot, steaming, and often tremendously  disturbed-by the throes of a globe beneath-it that was shrinking because it  was becoming cooler.    As  the ��������� globe  'shrank- every particle, of the outside  was naturally  pulled    in toward  the  centre, and-the-hardening crust, which  - could .not be packed any more solidly  than it" was, had to wrinkle, sinking  down here and bulging up- somewhere  else.  After a time certain of those rising  wrinkles, or folds, the thicker or firmer p: Is of the earth's crust, stood the  strain and became permanent ridges.  The oldest' of them, that geologists  know and apparently the first that  bulged up above the universal ocean  and remained high and dry. was the  broad mass on which Canada now  rests'. It" is a part of the original crust  of the earth,' and we can see it today  wherever it' is not covered by newer  rocks or soil just as it crystallized and  cooled out of. the primeval molten material."  - This' mass, formed a broad V from  Labrador down to" Lake Huron and  thence northwestward to Alaska. On  account of its shape-geologists call it  the Canadian shield. It is the oldest  land known and apparently the strong  est, for there arc no signs of any ex-  ' tensive changes in it (except the wealing away of the surface) since it first  rolled the ocean off its shoulders.  Off the eastern coast of this primitive continent lay a chain of lofty islands about on the line of the Blue  -Ridge, the White Mountains, the  Maine coast and Nova Scotia. Between  these islands and the mainland was a  troughlike space that ran from Eastern Quebec southwestward to Ohio. It  was two or three hundred uiles wide  and. fillediwith i. shallow sea, and just  outside the island chain was the great  hollow that held the Atlantic ocean.  Time went on. For ages the straining and cracking of the shrinking  globe, earthquakes, sun and frost,  pounding surf, running water, blowing'  gales, ice���������all labored to tear down the  mountains and carry the wreckage of  rocks and dust away into the valleys  and r.eas. In this way vast masses of  . rock in layers of shales, sandstones,  and what not, were laid down ii that  narrow, ��������� troughlike sea between the  chain of islands and the continent.  All these "sedimentary" rocks' were  soft and weak as compared with the  solid old granites deeply rooted on  either side of them, and the trough itself, a sagging fold, was a' line of  weakness in the crust. As the-lead of  deposits became heavier and heavier  ���������the floor of this trough slowly yielded,  and as it sank toward the heated region below- the undersidt- melted and  'grew thinner and thinner.  That could not go on forever, and  soon the continual shrinking of the  globe and tho enormous pressure of  flie weight of the ocean became irresistible. The Canadian shield was  immovable, so the rock in J.-e trough  began to bulge or crumple all along its  length. Gradually, not all at once, but  by slow and varying mqvements, tho^e  folds were squeezed up, which in their  brokenand worn down iorm we know  as the Appalachian mountains. .  Toward the south there-was'room  for this action to be rather gentle and  regular, but in the far northeast the  1 rough was narrow, and the soft rocks  were set on edjre, overturned and  splintered against the solid continenc.  Very early ;n the struggle a great  fracture of the earth's crust occurred  here alonr a curving northeast and  southwest line. It left a deep and  broad trench between the crushed and  displaced rockr of the trough and the  granite shore of the Canadian shield:  Into this trench rushed all theinterior  waters of -'-he continent, draining away  to the sea, and the St. Lawrence river  was born!

ELECTIONS IN FRANCC  They Are Held on Sunday and Rarely  Finished   in   One   Day  In France elections are held on Sunday. Universal manhood suffrage is  the rule. Every Frenchman of twenty-  one 'years, of age, on proof of six  months' residence, is a legal voter at  the elections to the chamber, saving  only soldiers on , active service and  others disqualified for bankruptcy and  criminal reasons Because of the number of candiates the first day's polling in many districts is not final.  Where no candidate receives an absolute majority, a second election is  held. It often happens that from one-  third to one-fourth of the elections for  deputies are not finally decided until  the second poll, when not infrequently  one or more candidates in a district  have withdrawn. .  The polling begins at 8 in the morning and lasts until 6 in the evening.  Instead of regularly appointed clerks  and election officials, three volunteers  lake charge of the "urn" in which the  ballot's are deposited and conduct the  proceedings. One of the penalties of  being, first to appear is the likelihood  of being impressed into service as one  of .tha assessors, of whom two, both  independent voters, must serve, with  the "president of the ballot." The  counting of the ballots is also done by  volunteers called for from among the  electors.  , Incite absence of-the party system  it Is "difficult strictly to .classify the  candidates. In a general way they  range themselves in groups around  certain well known political leaders.���������  New York World.  ������������������^ttMWHHt  WHERE --THE ARGOSIES  OF THE illS MEET  When Sargent has finished a picture  he is heartily glad to see the last of :t.

Bedford, deputy minister  of agriculture in Manitoba, fjves the  following general principles of cro:' ro-  tation:  1. Include at least one leguminous  crop in the rotation to gather nitrogen from the air.  2. Have at. least cne cultivated or  hoed crop *in the rotation' that the  land rnay be cleaned of weeds..  3. :Rotatc shallow-rooting crops with  deep-rooting ones, so as to enlarge the  feeding ground of the plants. ,        ''".���������  4. When possible to do so avoid rotating small cereals with other small  cereals, especially avoid repeating the  wheat crop. ; " .  ' 5. If live stock is kept plan the rotationsj as to have approximately the  same amount of forage each year.  ;G. As soon as conditions permit keep  more or less stock on the farm, in no  other way can the fertility of the land  be kept up.  7.-At the earliest possible moment  have the bedding so free of weeds that  the.manure can be applied direct from  the stable and thus save much waste  of fertilizer;  8. Arrange the rotation so that most  of the hired help will be profitably  employed all the year round, the rate  of wages will be less and employees  will be more contended.  ...

Ever Eat It?  There is a dish of the olden time  that has been crowded almost out of  memory by the ruthless tide of common events. It was a cold weather  food that came with the snow and hog  killing time .uia then vanished with  the angry clouds and howling winds.  Wlien one ate it the green grass  melted away thes now, the birds sang  in the blossoming cherry trees and  old frigid winter became tho middle  of May. It was so easy to eat. It  melted in the mouth like ice cream, it  was delicate. Let a person fully satisfy his appetite on it, and he could'  go out in zero weather and enjoy a  tropical blessing. This food did not  last long, ^or it was part of an event  that soon hurried by, and this was a  grateful dispensation, too, for a per  son would be apt to eat much of it if  it lasted long. But it is well it passed  away. This degenerate generation,  filled with caramels and angels' food,  couldn't appreciate it. But In those  beautiful days before tho war it was  a beloved diet.

In  another case the heart of a woman,  who had been stabbed, was sewn up  at a Paris hospital; and a few min  utes later she walked off as sound  and well as ever. A Swiss surgeon  has removed the entire stomach of a  patient, who gets along just as well  without it, eating and 'digesting  through the gullet; and a noseless  man has been provided with a new  organ from one of his own fingers.  The patient's , arfti was encased in  plaster, and for four weeks he had  to hold his "live" finger to his face  until it took root, when It was amputated, to flourish as a nasal organ.

The  Usefulness of the    Wirelecs    In  War    Time    Has  Been Abundantly  Proven���������The Big Government Land  Stations of the Powers.  Wireless   telegraphy  is     tho    new  force  in  modern  warfare  which lias  changed all the old problems of communication.   Prof. Frank Waldo, writing  in   the   Boston  Transcript,  gives  an interesting description of war time  uses of the wireless.  ;"The usefulness of wireless in war  time," says Professor Waldo, "has just  been proved in the recall of certain  ships after they-had left port, war  having been declared in the meantime.  One ship was recalled to New York  after proceeding over 500 miles on her  way across the Atlantic; and the wireless has been active in reaching ships  from the European stations either for  purposes of recall or notification that  the war is on.    ,  "The stopping of all telegraphic and  telephonic communication between the  belligerents at the first breathings of  :war, and the partial stopping by control and censorship of such communications from nations at war to non-belligerents, has : rendered invaluable  messages by wireless across and  around the regions controlled by the  belligerents and especially at sea and  across the seas. But the bottling up  of any place so that it cannot hold  communication with the outside is a  thing, of the past. The fact that a  wireless apparatus cannot be easily  hidden prevents the surreptitious use  which, might be made of it in regions  under control of the ^belligerents, although for short-distance communication, such as along frontiers or between close lying countries as in Western Europe, a.small wireless receiving  apparatus might be secretively used,  especially if it were temporarily,  strung under cover of the darkness  and taken down before daylight. Id  such work there will be a new field for  signal corps work and: scoutings.-  "As regards the more powerful  land stations, those which will keep  up communication 500 miles and upwards these can be easily kept under  government supervision, but the use  of. wireless on ships for sending messages up to from 250 miles to 500  miles, and receiving" them at still  greater distances from powerful land  stations, will be subject only to such  artificial interference as may be put  in operation by the belligerents. There  can be no doubt that the experience  in the present-war will result: in tha  closer governmental control of private and amateurfwireless installation.  "Austro-Huiigary' has four important government wireless stations:'  Castlenuovo, P^ola, and Sebinico, with  normal range of 250 miles by day  and 500 by night; and Trieste -with a ���������  day range ,of 150 miles and a night  range of 300.  "Germany has   seventeen   wireless  stations,  of    which    eight are  light--;,  ships with small range of from 20 to  '  60 miles.   The remaining stations are-'  at Barkurn, .range   100    miles;    Bre-  merhafen,  range    200    miles;-   Bulir  (Kiel  Bay),    range  110 miles;     Cux-  haven, day range    110    miles,    night  range, 170 miles;    Danzig, day range  330 miles, night range 600 miles; Helgoland, range 110 miles;    Norddeich,  day range, 420 miles, night range, 830  miles; Sassrutz (Rugen),   range   110  miles;   Swinemunde,    day  range,  330  miles, night range 660.  "Franci has eighteen stations:'  Boulogne-sur-Mer, range 100 miles;'  Bouscat. range. 160 miles; Brest,  range. 350 miles; Cherbourg, range  350 miles; 'Dieppe, range 55. miles;-  Dnukerue, range 350 miles; Eiffel  Tower, large range; Ouessant, range  380 miles;; Port Vendres���������; Roche-  fort range 350 miles; S.

"Great Britain has sixty-eight land  stations. Literally, thousands of ships  are provided with wireless outfits, an������i  those on board men-of-war usually  have a range of 300 miles or more,  and are. thus equal to a good land  station.

She is dressed in a green  velvet riding habit of the time of  Charles II., with a long red feather in  her gray hat. Oa her left stands a  page in an old gold velvet suit, with  a dog by his side. This picture has a  remarkable history, as well, as numerous titles. The catalogue calls It  "Equestrian Portrait," but it is also  ' nown as "Nell Gwynne," the nama  given it by Millais, and also sometimes as "Diana Vernon." The fact is  that Sir Edwin Landseer left this picture unlinished. He painted the horse  and its trappings, intending it for ari  equestrian portrait of Queen Victoria.  Hut he died and left the picture unfinished, and it was sent to Sir John .Mil-  lais, who painted his own daughter la  this o'.d riding costume, together with  the page, the dog and the background*  The picture was begun in 1870 and flfti'  Ished twelve years later.���������London 01$ ���������  zen.
