 v--  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I can guess as well as you."  I1  *v;*v\  $1.00 PER YEAB  L REBUILD  THE FOUNDRY  According to a statement made  by H. L Muoroe, general manager  of the Granby company at Anyox,  to Mayor Acres and Fred Clark yes^  terday, the smelter dam and smelter lake will remain in the 'present  condition for sortie time at least.  Mr. Munroe and Valentine Quinn,  comptroller of the Granby company,  arrived in the city on Wednesday,  aud have divided a couple of days  between inspecting the smelting  planting in this city and the mines  in Phoenix.  The interview of the mayor and  and Mr. Clark was in the interest of  the Grand Forks Sawmill Company,  I/.d., who are desirous of moving  their mill from Lynch Creek to  Smelter lake provided reasonable assurance is given that the dam will  not be taken out.  Regarding the future plans of the  Granby company in the Boundary  country Mr. Munroe was non-com>������  mittal.- The present condition of the  copper market made the future un-  ceitaid. He intimated, however,  that when the situation improved  the company might erect a concentrator at some point in the Boundary.  BAKING QUALITY  OF THE LOWER  GRADES OF FLOUR  of the cheaper   grades of  flour; and SecuresExtension of^Time  their   high   nutritive value, we  see  Experimental Farms Note.  With the ever increasing cost of  living, it has become necessary to  fiod corresponding means of saving.  The housewife is the person on  whom most of the responsibility of  economizing rests. The use of some  of the cheaper grades of flour instead  of the highly expensive first patent  is another means of saving that may  be added to the already long list.  During the war all members of the  community were forced to use government standard flour which was  of a lower grade than most people  had been accustomed to. Nevertheless, most of the bakers succeeded  in furnishing bread so good that few  people would have considered it distinctly-inferior had it not been for  the difference in color. Too much  attention has, however, always been  paid to color in flour and bread,  Bread that is really very pale is not  bo healthful as bread made of somewhat lower grade of flour, and tbe  war time bread was really superior  as a food to the extremely white  product in use previously. Lower  grades of flour eomewhat similar to  the government standard flour can  always be purchased, but are not  usually in much demand on account  of their inferior color. These second  and third grade flours, however,  contain a higher percentage of protein and assimilable phosphates.  These features are distinctly advantageous.  two distinct advantages in using  them. The claims made for tbe  whitest flours are, nearly always  much exaggerated and are some  times quite absurd, and the public  would do well to insist on obtaining  the really superior materials which  are sold as inferior.  A LONG-DISTANCE  LAYER  [EXPERIMENTAL FARMS NOTE ]  As a rule, hens lay two or three  eggs and then miss a day. , Some  good hens will lay more.before they,  lake a dav off, and we have known  iudividual hens to lay five and six  dozen eggs and not miss a day, but  a record in long distance laying  without   a   miss ' haB, as far as we  ���������r  known, been established by the Ex  perimental Farm poultry division at  their Kentville, N.S., station, where  a Barred Ply moth Rock   pullet laid  104 eggs in 104 days.  This Barred Rock, whose leg num  bsr is 63, did not Btart to lay very  early. In.fact, her first egg was laid  on the,25th of' January. She laid  two eggs and missed a day, laid five  eggs and misseel a day, four eggs  and missed a day, one egg and a  miss, then two eggs, but on the 13th  of February she got down to business and laid every day for the rest  of the month, every day in March,  every day in April, and every day  in May up to the 27th, when she  took two days off. After this time  she took an occasional day off until  the 20th of June, when she became  broody. Whpn she went broody her  total record was 136 eggs in 147  days.'       .   " ���������  Jazzing the Proceedings  If the voters snpport a continuance  of the Prohibition act, will the temperance people help to enforce it?  They * have done nothing in three  years ������xcept get Fin lay, one of their  number, appointed commissioner for  its enforcement. He was a failure  and a crook. The people want results,  not brainstorms. From the first attempt at suppression of the liquor  traffic, the Dunkin act, in the '70's,  the temperance advocates have failed  in enforcing legislation. Just as soon  as the law is passed they turn up  their eyes, thank the Lord, and quit,  expeeting the general public to do  the real work. Personally we would  like to see the drunks given enough  liquor to kill them, and a few jolts  put into many of the parsons before  going on shift might jazz up the proceedings.���������Kaslo Kootenaian.  on Work for Trail Smelter and Will Continue  Operations  John McKie, of the Boundary  Iron Works, who, .returned Irnm  Trail Suuday-night, states that he  was Kucce.-Htul in obtaining an extension of time for tbe completion  of the contracts for work which he  recently secured from the Trail  smelter "This extension of time was  rendered necessary owing to the destruction by fire last week of a portion of the iron works plant.  Mr. McKie will either rebuild the  portion of the works destroyed by  fire or purchase the smaller of the  two steel works buildings and move  it. The probability is, however, that  he will eract a new building  DEPUTY MINISTER  OF MINES GIVES ADVICE TO INVESTORS  She Knew What  She Wanted, Anyway  One man said to another in the  first weeks of December, "What are  you going to give your wife for a  Christmas present?''  "I don't know yet," said the other  "She put it away in a drawer before  I had a chance to see it."  Wm. Emard and wife left tonight  for Copper Mountain, where they  will live in future -  "A large number of people who are  unfamiliar with the mining industry  look upon it in an entirely different  light than other industries which  money might be invested in," Charles  Oamsell, the newly appointed deputy  minisser of mines for Canada, sa'id in  an interview recently. "Many consider investment, in mine property  purely a gamble. Those who make  mining investments from that point  of view court disaster. Only when investors place their funds in mining  property after securing the advice of  men familiar with the industry, and  who have special knowledge of mining and engineering problems, will  they find that they acted sanely.  "Mining is a specialized industry."  he added, "and people must avoid  putting their money into it until they  have sound technical advice. Booms  take place in mining fields as well as  in any other, and they always have  their reaction. The results of booms  are bad���������not good, and often'it takes  years to recover. What I would like  to soe in the mining world is a good  healthy steady progress. Mines can  only be developed through time.  "Mineral production in Canada  shows a steady growth. The war has  served to stimulate the. industry rather  than retard it. Today more mineral  wealth is being placed on the market  than during the Klondike gold   rush.  "Thedepartment of mines has at  paescnt seven geological parties and  five topographic parties at work in ���������  British Columbia.

Then   the   former   speaker of con  gress described the  usual   active   clay  he spends in Washington   while  congress is in session.     Here is the   pro-;  gram:.

Eats what he wants.  Catches the street car for the jcapi-  tol, arriving usually,before 10 o'clock.  Enters his office just off the house  floor, reads letters and newspapers,  most of time without glasses. Attends  all meetings of the appropriation committee, of which he has been a member since he entered the house in  1872 Attends to business connected  with the pension legislation.

Receives frequent visitors.  Goes to the National Press club for  dinner, his second meal of the day,  then usually plays dominoae or attends a theater. It it late when he  returns to his hotel.  "Uncle Joe" reads one of the kind  of books that "reads itself." He admits partiality to blood and thunder  yarns.  It is after midnight when he goes  to sleep.

CIlli BOND  ESI  Over $135,000j000 of the  Bonds Have Been Redistributed Among Investors  Ottawa, Sept. 4.���������-It has been of*  ficially announced that the prices  for Canada's V ctory loan bonds  have been reduced to the following  levels:  1922���������9S   and interest,   yielding,  6.37 per cent. ,,i-. /*'"''  1923���������98   and interest,  y,-.-f.iug '  6.15 per cent.  1927���������97 and interest, yielding 6  per cent.  1933.���������96������ and interest, yielding  5.88 per cent.  19.37���������98 and interest, yielding  5.68 per cent.  1924���������97 and interest, yielding  6.27 per cent  1934���������93 and interest, yielding  6.24 per cent.

In these islands, writes a  cpntributor to English Country Life,  there is a vegetable that the natives  call tul-tul.  It is for all the world like a giant  turnip -except that it is a blood red  color aud is very tough and tasteless.  For the natives, however, it is a main  item of diet, and thev cook it and  mix it wite their cocoanut and bread  fruit. It is supposed to very nourishing-. They cultivate the plant in a  rough sort of fashion in large*ditches  or swamps. The peculiar characteris  tic of it is that it has to be fed. For  this purpose the native children go  over the island and collect decayed  vegetable matter, which the natives  soak in plenty of salt water and place  on tho short thick stem from which  tho leaves spread out on   every  side.  As you .look on, the decayed mat  ter disappears and the leaves stiffen  and spread out erect���������signs that indicate that the plant has dined heartily,  for it really is a case of feeding a  plant. There is no opening in the  stem or in the leaves; the food is  slowly absorbed in a silent and truly  wonderful manner. It is not known  on any other islands of the South  Pacific.  Peter A. Z.

It is the first step in the direction of a  general and adequate irrigation system.. The  committee reports fhat.some of the ranchers  are refraining from signing the petition because  they are under the impression that the installation of thc system will saddle a mortgage on  '���������".heir property. Tlie cost of.the system; is not  "fri-^ed as a mortgage, but as a tax. A few  ot'neri^piers are refusing to sign up because  they have their farms listed for. sale. It is reasonable to suppose that their property would  .-���������ell quicker, and at a higher price, w th water  ���������'in it than without the water. Any practical  farmer pu'rehasing land here would- not hesitate to assume the irrigation tax. What is  needed at the present time haste. If the farmers will sign the petition at once, there is  a possibility that the system will, be in work-  *ng order next summer.' If there is to be anther period of procrastinating, we may look  'orward to another season of short crops.  o  The policy of the Liberal party is eminently  constructive. Its tariff platform, reeognizes  the vast importance of the great natural resources of Canada and is framed for the purpose of giving thenr the greatest possible development. It declares in favor of reducing  the cost of production in the industries based  on the natural resources of .the Dominion, the  vigorous development of which is essential-to  the progress and prosperity of the country.  It recognizes that.the great evil of the present_  day. due largely to the war, is scarcity of the  necessities of life, and its policy is to remove  this evil as far as possible by increasing production, thus not only adding to the wealth  of the country, but. relieving the consumer and  producer from the hardships occasioned bv  the enormous increase in the cost of living in  lecent   vears.  Thc Liberal party is a  distinctly   co::sfitu  Most men know the happy surprice, the  feeling of unalloyed satisfaction, that comes  from finding an unexpected dollar in the corner of a pocket; The country is now ex peri-  encing that feeling, for every week confirms  the assurance of much larger yields'of them-  portant cereal crops in the western provinces  than was expected.

Bird and fish rose twice and went down again;  then the eagle gave up, completely exhausted,  and lay on the surface of the water until the  crew of the Roosevelt rescued it.      *  OPTICAL SERVICE  We render correct defective  eyesight  We are headquarters for the  newest    ,  OPTICAL GOODS  Call   here   and   have vour  eyes tested  Lqj>ii*  Jeweller and ������piieiaii  SUCCESSOR UO A. 1).

He had, besides  canaries, the thrush, chaffinch, lin  net. goldfinch and cirl   bunting. T re-  London* Place Names  Originally. Hyde Park, in London  was the site of tbe ancient Manor of  Hyde aud belonged to'the monastry  of St. Peter, Westminster. At that  time it covered nearly four hundred  acres In 1536 it.was conveyed to  King Henry VIII. It l6o2the  park was described as "that impal  pd ground called Hyde Park," and  was sold- by order of parliament fm  seventeen thousand pounds. ��������� De  Gramoct referred to Hyde Park as a  barn field in tbe time of Charles II.  Although nowadays it is the rendez  vous of fashion, at one time it was  let out in farms. *  London's famous Rotten Row, it  is interesting to know, is supposed  to be derived from the French Route  du Roi, which meant the King's  Drive. Pall Mall gets its name from  being the grounds where King Char  les and his courtiers played the  game that was called pale-maille  That game, sometimes known as  paille maille. consisted of hitting a  ball with a maille (mallet) through  an iron hoop that hung from an  arm on a high pole.

An  Englishmen was stopped  in  street in Moscow, he says, by a com  missary   of   the    Pied   Guard,   who  roughly demanded to see his permit.  "I haven't one," =vas the reply.  "Well, you can't stay in Moscow  one."  "All right!" answered the Englishman. "Then I'll leave it. J  don't care about staying."  "Have you a passport?"  "No"  "Then the regulations will not  permit yon   to  quit   Moscow.      Til  With your fingers!

BUSINESS <^MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? 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  city 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 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.  <*!  ca  ra  :B  m  it 'Wa.������* tf-rf-i sua i**AtM ������*.��������� ���������(���������u*nv������> **i: JS. -iiViTri.* iS ^j^^(T.i������3l2  HiH������^iiBinni������^^^^nKi^B^^^^B  >A*ZEBLJt������V THE    SUN.
