The 'origin  of the fire seems to be a mystery.  The  fire  department   appeared  on  ' the ground- promptly, and' pattern,  shop and ' office and the building  used for storing patterns were  saved.    *  ., ;It 'is expected .t;hat the building  will be,replaced and that tbe works  will soon resume operations. This,  however, will probably depend on  certain contingencies. The foundry  had just received a large order for  work.from the Trail smelter which  had to be finished by a specified  t^me. If an extension' of. time for  the completion of this.work can be  obtained',   the "building will  be re-  ;buiU,.,or;-an attempt will be made to  secure the old steel plant building  for foundry purposes.  Mr. McKie, the proprietor of the  Boundary..Iron Works.'left for Trail  thus evening to interview?;the smel  ter officials. On his return the future  plans of the foundry will likely be  made public.  LARGE VERSUS    ���������  SMALL HIVES  frame Langscroth hive, while the  1'2-frame hive requires a specially  large size of these. A super contain  ing'twelve Langstroth frames when  full with honey is heavier than many  people care to lift. Combs deeper  than the Langslroth frequently gr'vr-  better results in wintering. i  The question of large hive*, in,  however, chiefly oue for the beginner and chose whf> intend to enlarge  thetr apiaries. Those who already  have 8-frame, hive." can make them  satisfactory by using two chambers  iustead.of one, that; is to say., a second "hive body placed as a'siiper  over the blond chamber for. brood  rearing and even -.for wintering.  Those w.ho have the regular 10-fnmie  size and consider U not large enough  cau use a shallow super 5������ inches  deep over tt. There are, in fact, some  important advautages in having two  shallow chambers for brood rearing  and wintering. One can usually teli  when a colony Is preparing to swarm  by simply prying up the upper  chamber and looking for queen cells  containing larvae along the bottom  bars of its frames. If snch cells are  present, the colony will probably  .swarrn within a week, and' it will be  advisable to treat it   without  delay.  The capacity of combs for brood  rearing is often reduced by the  stretching of the upper parts of the  combs. This stretching may be prevented by using diagonal as well as  'the horizontal wires for supporting  the - foundatiou in the frames. A  little space can also be gained by  having the top bars of the frames g-  inch instead of ���������������- inch thick.  Whileexperiments with the large  hives will beconsin'ued, and we are  favorably impressed with the 10-  frame Jumbo for certain conditions,  we have not yet sufficient data to  modify the general.advice that has  been given to beginners to adopt  tbe 10 frame Langstroth hive.  race; -ind b"oaTr*>e I will not sell all  1 have and ^o.ou' and be", borrow  or stf'i.l monev to an") a war, I have  j ���������������~ Iipimi crH.-ieil, oi-'cu-'sed, - boycot1'd.

To contain the combs in beehives,  the Langstroth frame measuring 17|-'  inches wide by 9^-inches deep has  for many years been the size employed by most beekeepers. Some  years ago it was the fashion to use a  small hive holding'-only eight of these  frames. The S frame hive, however,  does not provide room enough for  the egi;s that can be laid by a prolific queen, and   the .10-fraine hive  'has been found more satisfactory,  especially where Italian bees instead  of black bees.are kept, and extracted  honey instead of comb honey is produced^ These larger hivtis usually  contain either ten frames of Jumbo  size, which is two inches deeper  than the Langdtroth, or twelve Langstroth   frames, the latter   making a  ���������square hive. Colonies tn such large  hives retain more stor.is for'winter  and this is an advantage where the  natural stor<ft are wholesome for  wintering, but a disadvantage where  they are unwhol.esome. These large  hive3 help to prevent swarming to some extent, but they are apt  to be unhandy and cumbersome,  and heavy to lift and move "about.  Comparison between the 10 frame  Jumbo and the 12-frame-Langstroth  hives   at   *he   Central experimental  farm, Ottowa, has shown the former;    to be moje satisfactory on the whole;      je98iu E Mills, wife of David  G.  .the bees winter better in the Jumbo j Mills, died ut Ferry, Wash., on  hives, and it takes the regular sw August 21. after an illness of several  pear.-, covers and iloora  of the   10- ! months' duration.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1920  Mr. Meighen is now fairly installed in his  new position of prime minister and has given  a pretty plain indication of the line which he  and his party ��������� intend to take in appealing to The human mind can nofc SrasP fche ful1  the people of Canada. He asks them whether meaning of such terms as eternity and infinity,  they are builders or wreckers,  and intimates Time and time aSain  preachers and men of  Though it is dangerous to joke at the expense of kings, more than one story of such a  jest has come down to us. When Charles II,  proud of his reputed skill as a naval architect,  asked a gentleman of his court if he did not  think that the king would have made a good  shipwright, he got the unexpected answer, "I  have always thought that your majesty would  do better at any trade than your own." William  IV, when Prince of Wales, remarked in fun  to the secretary of the admiralty, "When I am  king, you shall not be secretary. What have  you to say to that?" "God save the king," was  the prompt reply.  plainly that he and his associates are ijhe only  builders in   Canada and  that all others are  bent upon wrecking the institutions and destroying the prosperity  of the country.   The  electors of the Dominion have had an experience of Liberal rule and that experience absolutely contradicts the notion that Liberalism  is a destructive force.   Beforee the change of  government in 1896, Canada was sunk in   the  depths of depression under the  party which  now claims to  itself a monopoly of construe  tive aims.   The  moment the L beral government was placed in power, all Canada felt the  stirring of new life.   The tariff revision that  vyas made in 1896 was. thorough yet careful,  relieving the ^consumer,removing   burdens  upon  industry, and  establishing the British  preference.    A vigorous  immigration  policy  was adopted. Immigration poured into Canada in enormous numbers.   The fertile lands of  the west, which had long gone begging, filled  up with settlers. New to whs arose, old towns  grew to the proportions of cities. An immense  addition was made to the grain grow'ng area  of Canada,  and  the  westT took  its rightful  place as one of the chief granaries of the world.  Not only agriculture, but manufacturing industries   advanced   by    leaps   and  bounds.  Revenue came in abundance.   Surpluses took  one place of deficits, which had occurred under  Conservative  rule.   In  the decade  between  1901 and 1911 the increase in the population  of Canada was about as great as in  the previous three decades.    It was not only in regard to material prosperity thatthe new government showed  itself as a government of  builders, not of wreckers. Its leader, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, was the most distinguished  and  ardent advocate of Canadian  unity.   His  life  was devoted to unity and harmony, to the promotion of good will and to the removal of race  and  political  prejudice.    The  Liberal party  cherishes this tradition and remains  today as  it was then, the party of good will and -unity.  science have tried to hit upon  some illustra  tion  that would  give  us some  imaginative  realization of what the words mean.   Many of  the efforts have been picturesque, buL among  all those that we can remember at the moment  none is more striking than this:   Were one of  the smallest known insect to take an atom of  this earth, an atom so small as to be.invisible  to the naked eye, and carry it to the most dis  tant star, a journey that it would need a  million years  to   make, and, returning, take another infinitasimal  speck  and make another  million-year trip, and  so on until this whole  planet with all upon it and in it had been removed, eternity would then have'only  begun.  optical service:  We render correct defective  ,   eyesight.

An   Englishmen  was  stopped   in  street in Moscow, he says, by a'com  missary  of   the   Red  Guard,   who  roughly demanded to see his permit,  "I haven't one,".was the reply.  "Well, you can't stay in- Moscow  one." :     ���������  "All right!" answered the Englishman. "Then I'll leave it.

"Never!"  says the gentleman  of   Scottish   des  cent,    whoso   one   vice   is his love for  the so-called music of that queer   instrument.  From the "Miscellany" of the Manchester Guardian, however, he will  learn:  The Scots may have acquired their  love of bagpipes from England, not  from Ireland, as suggested by Commander Ken w'or thy in the house of  commons. In 1SG5 James Moncrieff;-  the lord advocate, told an Edinburgh  meeting that the bagpipe was an essentially English institution.

No sooner was a penny thrown  into the water than a native boy  dived and brought it to the surface.  Many times a penny did not reach the  bottom before a boy caught it.  On tho wharf the native mayoa,  surrounded by his fellow townsmen,  was awaiting the arrival of the  American naval o(Hcijrs to whom he  was going to tender a grand reception.

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 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 having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  ������$  B  ������BS ^/  THE   SLLN.  .GRAND    FORKS,  ews" of the City  H.
