Mexico City, May 12.—James
Pbilomen, a oaptain in tbe aviation
forcet during tbe world war and now
an engineer bere, on his return to
the city last week reported the finding of an immense prehistoric city
in the(state of Colima, at the foot of
the Colima volcano.
While prospecting for cement be
found the remains of the* city untier
lava beds and tbe primitive civiliza**
lion was beneath the cement de»
posits beneath the lava.
The city possesses several pyramids, one of whicb is very large
The bases of tbe pyramids are be<
low the gravel and cement deposits
under tbe lava, a distance of over
forty feet. Philomon believes tbat
the city is several thousand years
older than tbe Hows of lava which
cover it.     '
Near the ruins, which cover eev«
eral milt's, are caves of vast extent,
on the walls of wbich are curious
ancient hieroglyphic writings with
masses. of broken pottery on the
floors. Tbere are signs of habitation
of long ages ago.
Mr. Pbilomon extracted from tbe
upper city large stone figures,' presumably ancient goodz. These are
handsomely carved, showing that
they were made by a race well ad
vanced in civilization, tbough not
even tradition remains of the found'
ing and occupation of the city or
of the race which built it. Tbe city
had streets paved with cement simi-

Wonderful Properties
of Adrenalin
Adrenalin will restore the dead
to life—witb many reservations and
in a limited number of cases. It is
not a cure-all, nor an elixir of life,
nor a medicine for tbe blackbag of
the family doctor. It is, however,
a powerful heart stimulant that is
invaluable in certain cases of collapse.
Such is the opinion expressed by
Dr. Lester R. Dragstedt, assistant
professor of physiology io tbe University of Chisago, who, witb his it-
worker, Dr. Arno B Luckhardt, has
helped make adrenali-h more than a
medical novelty.
Tbe usefulness of adrenalin lies
chiefly in its effect of constricting
the heart and blood vessels, tbus
causing a marked increase in blood
pressure, the doctor declared, it is
this virtue which has accomplished
marvellous recoveries in certain
cases and has brought persons seem"
ingly dead to life by stimu'ating the
heart into action.
But here enter tbe reservations.
The heart must not bave stopped
more than a few minutes, 10 to 15
minutes is the maximum before the.
brain tissues become destroyed.
Tbe heart must not be diseased or
worn out. Other disease, sufficient
in itself to cause dea'th, uiust uot be
present. TheBe conditions limit tbe
cases where adrenalin may be used*
"Tbe most common cases are
those of heart stoppage due to over-
anaesthetization or of shock du eto
wounds," says Dr. Dragstedt. "It
can not be over-emphasized tba
drenalin will produce results onlyt
in " few special cases. People bearing of a few cures ask wby it was
not used in the caae of so-and-so,
who died. Tbey do not realize that
many complex conditions must be
fulfilled beioae its use can meet
with success."   ,

New Minister of Railways
Intends to Convert
theFoundling Inherited
From Former Government Into an Asset for
Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Victoria, May 16.—The Pacilic
Great Eastern railway, that unwelcome foundling inherited by tbe
Oliver government from its predecessor, is becoming a real railway at laBt
So reports Hon. J. D. MacLean, min
ster of railways, who has returned
from an inspection of the government line. The roadbed is in good
condition and plans have been completed for the provision of a good
service this year. Sleeping cars and
a dining car have been added to the
equipmsnt and travellers are now
able to make the trip to and from
Quesnel in comfort.
The minister states that wbile thu
province is shouldering over $40,-
000,000 in carrying the P.G.E.,still
there is no way f getting rid-uf tbe
obligation aud bis determination iB
to turn it into a genuine asset. A
strong bid is being made for a fair
share of ths tourist business coining
to the province this year, and before
the summer is over plans will have
been completed for tbe settling of
many new farmers along tbe line.
Premier Oliver is indignant over
the charges of W. J. Bower, K.C,
leader of the opposition, that when
in opposition many years ago, Mr.
Oliver refused to support Sir Richard
McBride in the latter's efforts to
secure equalization of freight  rates.
"Because I am fighting hard for
the interests of the province and
making considerable headway in
this regard, Mr. Bowser naturally
makes ligbt of my efforts;and seeks
lo place me in a wrong ligbt," commented Premier Oliver. "However,
bere I have the goods," and be
turned up the journals of tbe legis.
lature for 1907, where it is disclosed
that John Oliver moved a resolution, se nnded by Mr. Henderson,
asking that an investigation be made
be tborougblyjgone into. Thc motion
was resolved in the affirmative and
representations were made to tbe
board of railway commissioners dur*
ing their session in Victoria,
"That-ure'y Bhows I have been
consistent in tbis cdbuection from
tbe start," is the premier's answer.
Attorney-General A. M. Manson
has about completed plans for tbe
thorough reorganization of tbe provincial police. For two weeks con-
ferencet have been held with police
chiefs and inspectors present. The
new plaus will make the police a
semi-militarj organization, with
special training provided for the
officers. A uniform will be worn and
every attempt made to have the
force aB highly efficient as possible.
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, has arranged for a .splendid
mineral exhibit from this province
for the Empire' exhibition to be
held in Loudon next year. Specimens have already been obtained
from many pf the mining centers
and others are being arranged for.
When the collection is complete the
minister of mines claims il will
show in a graphic manner the mineral resources of Bri'ish Columbia
and prove a splendid medium of advertising tbe opportunities here for
In order to promote interest in
British Columbia lands among prospective settlers from Great Britain
and ojher parts of Europe, Hon. T.
D. Pattullo, minister of lands, has
appointed Major J. W. Clark colon-
ization commissioner for British
Columbia in London. He will work
under the direct supervision of the
federal depaitment of immigration,
but will devote his efforts towards
direciing emigrants to this province.
Figures compiled by tbe department of industries, under Hon.
John Hart, show that never before
has British Columbia been iu such
splendid condition from an indue-
t.ial point of view. New industries

many manufacturing plants are unable to meet the demand for their

Three Properties Affected
A Trick of the Telegraph
An inspector of railway
property whose duties had
taken him to Bridgeport,
Connecticut, discovered that
the fonndation under the
freight house needed repairs.
Without delay he filed this
dispatch to the New York
"Foundation under freight
house at Bridgeport unsafe-
rush men at once."
In sending the message thc
operator on tho New York
wire apparently did not space
the letters properly in the
word •'foundation" and also
pressed too long to form thc
letter "t"; for this is the message received in New York:
"Found a lion under freight
house at Bridgeport—rush
men at once."
The inspector was astonished a few hours later to see
a special work train come into
the yard with a fiat car containing a large animal cage
and also ten men who expected to have an exciting
time catching a lion\hat they
supposed had escaped from
some passing circus.
A disastrous Hood, causing
a damage of over $50,000,
occurred last Friday afternoon, when the dam of the
struage reservoir on the
Doukhobor colony's property at Carson gave way and
the vast volume of water
which it contained rushed
through the orchards in a
huge wave to }he river.
The reservoir was used for
stojing water from Fourth of
July ereek for irrigation purposes during the dry period
ofthe summer months. At
the time the break occurred it
was apparently filled with
water to its capacity.
The water rushed th.iough
the orchards with great force,
in many instances uprooting
trees, and in its wake was
left a deep covering of gravel
and large boulders which it
will require a great deal of
labor to remove. Where the
water crossed the transprovincial highway, a short distance west of Frache Bros .
greenhouses, the wave is said
to have been six feet high.
Fortunately there was no
traffic on that section of the
road at the time of the accident. Very little damage was
done to the highway.
After crossing the road,
the water swept through the
Doukhobors' orchard and
F-iache Bros', nurseries and
li. L. Kidd's property to the
The great volume of water
rushing into the river muddied the water in that stream,
and for twenty-four hours
after the accident the city
water supply was hardly fit
for domestic purposes.
Peter Veregin estimates
the damage done by the flood
to the colony's property,
through the loss ofthe reservoir and by injury to the
orchards, at about $50,000.
The loss sustained by Frache
Bros., caused mainly through
the uprooting of nursery '
stock, is said to have been
quite heavy, and it is claimed
that considerable damage was
done to Mr. Kidd s property.

visitors to the K. of P. grand lodge

Notes, Notions and Notables
Much discussion has been caused among
officers of the Canaeian forest services by the
recent statement of Col. W. B. Greeley, chief
forester of the United .States, that a "timber
famine"   already has bogun   on   the  North
American continent and will become worse
before it can get better.   The view expressed
by the distinguished American meets general
endorsement in this country.   One   of  Col.
Greeley's statements was that American forests will be exhausted in thirty to foaty years
and that the forests of the United States are
being  depleted   four times faster jhan they
are being renewed.   Col. Groeley maintains
that in effect the greatest lumber consuming
sections of the nation are now suffering from
what is,  in effect, a timber famine resulting
from the high freight rates caused by the long
distances of the remaining forests from the
consuming centers.

This is a great season for archaeology. Besides the remarkable discovories at Luxor,
there is the work of the expedition to Sardis,
the ancient capital of Lydia. The fruits of
excavations there have just reached New
York, where they are to be displayed in tbe
Metropolitan Museum of Art. "The most
magnificent material that ever came out of
Asia Minor," this cargo of antiquities has
been called. It contains specimens of Lydian
art and household articles from the early Hit-
tite age to the time of Byzantium. It is believed that, when fully classified and studied,
the collection will help us to a better understanding of the beginnings of JEgena and
Ionian culture. An expedition that has been
at work among the Ozark Hills of Missouri
and Arkansas comes back with news of a discovery that points to a prehistoric culture in
that region that, if Indian, was quite unlike
any other Indian culture known. The weapons
and tools that have been found are of stone,
and there are some remarkable examples of
weaving and basket-making in fiber and bark
A hoe with a wooden handle and a clamshell
blade attached to it by fiber is one of the interesting implements that the searchers fonnd.

What huge sums the American people spend
on travel and recreation! The American Express company, which knows pretty closely
liow many Americhns go abroad and how
much money they spend, says that American
travelers left something like $200,000,000 in
Europe last year. But it is calculated that the
ten million people who -visited Atlantic City
last year spent as much as that in that one
resort. Winter visitors to Florida spent about

Fully a year has passed since the Medical

preliminary announcement of a treatment for
diabetes that promised success. The intervening months have apparently borne out the
hopeful expectations of the discoverer. Nearly all patients can be kept in a state that is
virtually normal, and some patients seem to
be cured. The university is departing from
the age old custom of tbe medical profession
of giving a discovery to the world freely and
has patented its method of treatment—more
for the sake of protecting the public than to
make money.

Double-Ender and Driver.
In the passing of Charles Clarke at his Toronto home, the Canadian Pacific lost one of its oldest
locomotive engineers. In the pioneer days of Canadian railroads, the late Mr. Clarke used to drive
an old wood-burning engine known as a double-ender, and the engine on which he made his first run
as engineer on the Canadian Pacific is shown above. He was born in England 76 years ago and
started railroading at the age of eighteen with the old Midland line, joining the company from whose
service he was retired about twelve years after.

IK-Me Kootenay Columbia Valley
was practically unknown except to its
lew inhabitants. But no longer will
this great silent vale remain ur.known
md inaccessible, for blasted out of thc
rock and hewed through the great for-
•sts of pines there has been built n high-
Way, a great motor road, which will bc
opened officially to thc tourists next
year. This will be known as the Banff
Windermere Road. It follows a route
from Banff, through the Vermillion and
Sinclair passes to the Windermere district of the Columbia Valley, a distance of some eighty miles. On it thc
traveller will follow the most wonderful sut-xession of peaks, ravines and
valleys on the North American conth*
ent, rivalling in rugged splendor those
seen along the Grand Canyon of thc
In the late Summer, under the direction of L. 0. Armstrong, the well-
known Canadian lecturer, and under thc
auspices of the Canadian Pacific Railway, there started from Banff a party
of writers and camera men. This was
the first party privileged to traverse the
new highway by the pack train medio I
of transit, and probably thc last as the
road is practically completed.
Marble Canyon was the first side trip
of the party, this being some two miles
off the main road and so named because
of the grey marble rocks that form its
sides. Looking into the abysmal depths
of this narrow gorge, the presence of
the mad torrent below could only bc detected by a cloud of spray-mist and the
rambling of the rushing water.
In the vicinity of Marble Creek, a
mile or so from the main road, on the
mountain siile, are thc Vermillion paint
These are three holes some seven or
eight feet deep, filled with water of
three colors, ochre, red (Vermillion) and
green, the coloring being due probably
.to deposits of the soluble oxides of
iiron and copper. These combinations have formed natural pigments that
are equal Mo the finest commercial
paints. It is known that the Kootenays
long before the advent o*f the while
iman used these colorings to decorate
(their tepees with weird designs and

The next bit ef journey, some 15
miles, was through the Vermillion pais
—still along tiie road. Many writers
have essayed the description of mountain roads—long pine avenues with their
lights and shadows; on either side snow
capped peaks flung against the. sky,
these flanked by high foot hills topped
with burnt forests, where dead pines
twining and intertwining their dead
branches form a great drape of grey
lace. Above and below are streams-
tumbling torrents—water falls—springs
that bubble from the rocky sides and
send their silver streams to swell the
volume of turbulent creek. ,*Vnd lingering over all is the odor of thc pine'-'

subllmest creations — the mountain
At Vermillion crossing for the first
time tbe party left the road, for it is
in this vicinity that the last bit is being
completed, some seven miles.
Resuming the journey next day, the
pack train following the most direct
route forded and deforded the tortous
river, then climbed up some hundreds of
feet and was once again on the road.
Here the traveller realized just what an
amazing piece of engineering building this highway was.
Tbe party proceeded through the Vermillion pass into thc Kootenay Valley
and camp was pitched at Kootenay
Crossing, already a well known and
used camping ground that boasts the
modem conveniences of a rustic table,
poles for tents, nearness te water and
all the facilities that make camping
pleasant. Here, too, arc the first traces
of the incoming settler, the smoke of
clearing, the little cabin, the transforming of bush into farm land.
The Kootenay Valley is connected to
the Columbia via the Sinclair Pass, used
for years by the Indians, who after incursions into the rich lands of die Vermillion and Kootenay, where moose, elk
and other game still abound, crossed the
Divide to visit the hot springs now
known as the Radium Hot Springs.
For seven miles the pack train slowly
ascended to the summit of the pass, the
exact spot being marked by a little
emerald lake known as Summit Lake

the wonderful canyon itself enclosed by
rugged redw alls, known as the Iron

And in the heart of the canyon on tin
side of the mountain is a pool formed
by a flow from springs, which pour out
of the surrounding rocks at a tempera

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of sush i ,-fortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return theae little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe verious provinces 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 first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one io the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaid. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for fun/is 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. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
