on a city building The insurance

The clerk was instructed to write

sale of the Pacific botel. Lazareff
was forbidden to move the building
until the terms of the sale are complied witb, and in tbe meantime tbe
council decided not to cash the
cheque for $25 advauced.
The chairman of tbe water and
light committee reported that the
Mill creek flume had bsen completed at a cost of $2700. On motion, Aid. Liddicoat and Electrician
Meakes were appointed a committee

bave tbe right to refuse a traders'
license to a citizen receiving his
mail at tbe Qrand Forks post office.
Tbe clerk was instructed to file a

One of the essential factors for
successful wintering of bees is to
have the colonies well filled with
young bees that bave done little or
no field work. There should b. at
least enough bees in the hive to
cover at least six or sevno full-sized
frames at tbe end of September or
early in October. Any colony witb
less bees than this should be united
One good strong colony is worth
more than many weak ones.
When uniting colonies two things
must be borne in mind: first, tbat
flying bees bave located themselves
and if their hive is moved they will
return to the old location, especially
if it is good flying weather wben the
moving is done, and second, tbat
bees of different colonies are likely
to engage in a free for all fighe when
brought together in one hive.
Wben a beekeeper has tw*) or
more apiaries the first difficulty can
be overcome by uniting tbe weak
colonies of ooe yard to another.
Where there is only one apiary tbe
uniting is best done during the dull
weather when tbe bees aie confined
to their hives for several days at a
An eaey method to unite two
colonies without the bees fighting is
to first smoke tbe colonies we'l and
i hen to remove the cover and quilt
from oue of them and placing over
the frames a single sheet of newspaper. The otheV colony is tben
lifted off its floor-board ard placed
over Ihe first colony wilh the paper
bit ween them. The bees will gnaw
holes through Ihe paper in a short
time and will gradually unite
together tbrough these. If tbere ie
brood in botb colonies tbis cau all
be placed in the lower chamber later
on, aod tbe top chamber removed.
It is well to kill one of tbe queens
just before uniting thc colonies, the
beet queeu of course being left. If
there is no prefertnce for queens
tbey can botb be left and tbe bees
will kill ooe of tbem.
Another plan of uniting, a d one
in wbicb all the queens are saved; is
as follows: Dnring dull weather in
the late fall when the bees have
been confined to tbeir hives for several days remove from eacb of the
weak colonies five of the lightest
combs, shaking tbe bees from them
down in front of tbe bive and pushing tbe otber five to one side of the
bive Two or tbree days later place
a tight fitting division board in tbe
center of balf of the hives witb tbe
bees oo one side Bnd then bring the
combs and bees from the other
hives and place oo tbe opposite side
of tbe division boards, tbus bringing together two weak colonies into
one hive. Provision mtistbe nude
(or a double entrance. Tbese col
onies can be fed in tbe usual man
ner and can be wintered either in
the cellar or outside. By this method a surplus of queens can be bad
in tbe spring.—C. B. Qooderbam,
Dominion Apiarist.

Neglect of simple precautionary
measures is largely responsible for
the recurrence of influenza in the

Coming Home
Victoria. October 26.—It has been
announcsd by Dr. Sutherland, minister of public works, that he intends to
call for tenders for the erection of a
fireproof permanent library building
for the University of British Columbia. As an indicotion of the growth
of this provincial institution of learning, it is interesting to observe that
the books to be housed already number 50,000 volumes
It will  be understood, of   course,
that  the   cost   of   the  building for
whieh tenders are about to be called
will be met entirely from the sale of
adjacent lands that belong to the peo.
pie of the province. These have been
set aside for the purpose of furnishing the wherewithal essential to the
development of the university.
Victoria, October 25.—After a
balf century of misundeastanding
and legal difficulties a matter between tbe Dominion and tbe provincial government of British Columbia bas been cleaned up satis
factorily by tbe government, Under
tbe terms of an agreement reached
between Hon. Ernest Lapointe, federal minister of m rine and fiberies
aod Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lands, for tbe government, ownership of Fafse Creek, English Bay and
West Vancouver, outside the First
Narrows, ire vested in tbe government of British Columbia. Burrard
Inlet, including the North Arm, it
is agreed, is under tbe ownership of
tbe Dominion. Tbe conference
agreed upon the boundaries of cer.
tain British Columbia harbors,own-
ersbip. of wbicb by tbe federal authorities is conceded. These harbors
are; Vancouver, Victoiia, New Westminster, Esquimalt, Nanaimo and
Both Hon. Mr. Patulloand Hon.
Mr. Lapointe stated after the settlement tbat tbe best interests of tbe
province should be b rved as tbe result of the conference, and in future
tbere will be no complications witb
regard to industrial development in
the harbors of tbe coast  province.
Mucb has been seid and written
about tbe freight rates fight waged
by Premier Oliver and tbe government for tbe past two years. The recent announcement by tbe board of
railway commissioners that a further
10 per cent reduction on grain would
become effective immediately is an
evidnce that the fight bas not been
for nothing. However, tbe premier
expects that the reduction is only a
forerunner of others to be announced later. Meanwhile, he shows
that on the 20,000,000 bushels of
grain ebipped west to Vancouver
from August, 1922, tbe reduoed rates
bave resulted in a saving of $1,020,-
000, a very substantial sum. The
anticipated reduction, when rates
have been equalized, wi 1 mean
millions of dollars to tbe people of
British Columbia as well as to the
farmers of the prairie provinces. The
government's expenditures in connection with tbe freight rates fight
baye been fully justified, even if no
further gains are made.

Ten Commandments
For the Motorist
The ten commandments of good
driving are as follows:
1. Drive on tbe right side of the
road; it is just as good as tbe left.
2. Slow down wben approaching
a crossroad; it is nearly as dangerous as a railroad crossing.
3 Look out for children. You
can never tell wbat they will do.and
you are always in tbe wrong if you
bit one.
4. Try to belp instead of hinder
tbe traffic officer; be is there for
your goo-', and he's got a tough job.
5. Be sure that your "dimmers"
really dim; it's no joke driving into
a blinding glare, ae you probably
6. Head and obey tbe warning
eigne; tbey are not put up as ornaments.
7. If you feel you've got to speed
- -do it wbere it won't kill anybody
but yourself.
8. Wben making minor repairs
stop where your car may beseen
from botb directions; otherwise you
may stop longer tban you anticipate.
9. Speeding around corners is a
straight route to the hospital. Don't
race pant a stopped street car. Some
day the jury will call it manslaughter.
10. Uee discretion. Thc fact tnat
you bad the right of way won't
bring anybody back to life, least of
all yourself.

Notes, Notions and Notables
The Alaska boundary line is said to be the
longest and  straightest surveyed line iu the
world.    The line consists of a vista of twenty
feet wide cut through  tall  timber,  of monuments set at intervisible points not more "han
four miles apart, and of a detailed map of the
strip of country two miles each side  of  the
boundary.    At prominent river crossings, and
at main points of travel, the  monuments  are
sectional shafts five feet  high,  of aluminum
bronze, weighiug .300 pounds, set in a  ton  of
concrete. At less important points the monuments are three feet high, set in 1500  pound s
of concrete. The commission  was  five years
finishing the task. The boundary runs for 600
miles over great  mountain  ranges, glaciers,
swift rivers, quicksands, bottomless morasses.
High summits were crossed,  raging torrents
forded, camp  made   on glaciers.    Every ob-
stable of the wilderness was fought and conquered.
It is related of the new premier of Japan,
according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, that interrupted by the terrors of the recent great
earthquake, in which the building in which he
was organizing his cabinet collapsed, he calmly moved to another building and proceeded
with his work. We can not do thiugs in that
way. We refuse to be deliberate. We live
fast, and each day we are living faster. We
are indifferent to the use of brakes. In the
expressive vernacular, we "step on it," and
think we are speeding in the way of superior
accomplishment. This is abnormal. There is
no nesd for the mad haste of the western
world-haste in businesss, in industry, iu the
pursuit of pleasure.

Cold storage systems have revolutioned the
provision trade and the element of waste deplorable in by gone days has largely been
eliminated. In Britain there is something like
twenty-five million cubic feet of cold storage
space available, and it is said that twenty
million eggs and one hundred and fifty thousand tons of meat may be found in cold stor
age in London alone. But eggs and meat are
not the only items which are commonly kept
in cold storage for longer of briefer periods.
Fabrics of all kinds, furs and silks, are kept
there. Then vegetables and dowers are kept
in cold storage. Flowers .and fruit can be
brought from Canada, Australia and New
Zealand in refrigerating chambers.
An Indian legend says that the Grand Canyon of Colorado was made single handed by
Pack-itha a wi, who was armed with a large
flint knife and a big stick. Once upon a time
the world was covered so deep with water
that nobody knew what to do until Pack-i-
tha-a-wi took the initiative. The knife he
thrust deep into the heart of the earth, ham
mering until the canyon was formed. Am
other legend says that there was a great chief
who mourned the death of his wlfe.Tavwoats.
One of rhe Indian gods came to him and told
him his wife was in a happier land, and offered to take lum there that he might see for
himself if, upon his return, he would cease to
mourn. The great chief promised. Then Tav-
woats made a trail through the mountains.
Then he rolled a river into the gorge so broad
and raging tliat it would engulf any that
might attempt to enter therebs,
French coffee, Turkish coffee, Russian coffee, all have had their vogue among those who
are constantly seeking the bizarre; but in "All

be weird enough to satisfy anyone's taste. It
is "Judge" Walter llumsey's "new and superior way of making coffee" as given in 1657.

The veil has been lifted from the prehistoric
past of the Philippine islands aud discoveries
have been made rivalling those in the tomb of
Tutankhamen, according to a report which
has just been received at the University of
Michigan from Dr. Carl E Guthe, heading an
archaeological expedition now in the islands.
Dr. Guthe's report hints strongly for the first
time that Chinese formerly inhabited the
island, a conclusion which he says is substantiated by the deposits unearthed by him
during the last year. Material so far discov -
ered, Dr. Guthe's report "says, includes hundreds of pieces of pottery, broken and unbroken, much of it of the Ming period, some
Tang, some Sung and much yet to be identified. There also have been found human bones,
cliipstone and :ron implements and weapons,
copper and bronze articles, gold inlaid teeth
and gold shell, glass and stone ornaments.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Homa and Itafuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training aid Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of tho many of sucih a-ifortuuates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed C lild Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinoes reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New York City; tliey have now homes
in 13 States, all doing eKoallentwork. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organised "3unshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is tha present objective of the Boa.id. While the
Home is to be looated in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expeoted. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. AU remittances
will be promptly acknowledged

In order to save the sockeye
salmon in tbe Fraser river system,
Hon. William" Sloan, minister of
mines and commissioner of fisheries
for Btitish Columbia, has urged
Hon. Ernest Lapointe, federal minister of marine and fisheries, to carry
on negotiations with the American
government and the state of Washington InokiDg to the complete closs
ing of the Fraser tosockeyo fishing
for a period of twety  or twenty five
years. The provincial department of
fisheries has been repeatedly placed
on record as favoring a uonfervation
policy with regard to this important
food industry, but so far action has
not materialized. This has been due
largely to tbe lack of cooperation on
the part of the United States au
tborities, but as the result of the recent conference between the two
minisiers it is expected that a satisfactory settlement is not far distant.

Chief Commissioner of Colonization
of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
outlined in a detailed speech existing conditions in Canada and prospects for the future. He emphatically stated that there was no cause

of rapid development, including an
increase in our population and thn
development of our latent natural
resources In such a way as to insure, in the comparatively near
fjture, that we should be out of

the Irish Free State will remain in
the Dominion.

''So  many people  were praising
