President Harding
Died Lart Night
First  News  Reached   Gity  by  Radio; Later
Gonfirmed by Telegraph and Telephone Messages
Warren G. Harding, president of the
United States of America, died at the
presidential headquarters in the Palace
hotel, San Francisco, at 7:30 o'clock last
night, according telegrams received in this
city today.
The news of the president's sudden death came as a great
shock to the people of this community, as the last report
from San Francisco was to the effect that Harding's condition was improving. When he visited Vancouver last week
he was apparently in the best of health. Mr. Harding was
the first president of the United States to visit Canada
while holding the office of chief, and the people of the Dominion will join the citizens of the republic south of us in
mourning for the illustrious dead.

Announcement has been made
that a Government wireless station
is to be erected on St. Paul's Island,

One hundred and forty thousand
Canadian school boys have been
banded into an army of guards to
watch for and prevent forest fires
in the Dominion this year, according

as the Young Canadians' Forest
League, will, it is expected, save
several million dollars' worth of
timber from firs ravages.
That "prospects for increased immigration into Canada are excellent" was one of the most important
statements made by E. W. Beatty,
K.C, upon his return from an extended tour of England and European capitals. The president of ths
Canadian Pacific Railway believes
Canada is progressing in the matter
of immigration, but intensified efforts are essential, he considers, to
offset erroneous impressions abroad
that Canada does not require new
settlers.
A record run between Winnipeg
and Quebec was recently made by
a special Canadian Pacific train
when passengers from the Orient
were, through delay cauaed by landslide, in danger of missing their
connection with the C.P.S.S. "Empress of Scotland" at, the eastern
port. The train covered the 1,579
miles in a little over 36 hours,
whereas the schedule time for trains
between these two cities is 63 hours.
Tbe passengers had crossed the Pacific on the C.P.S.S. "Empress of
Russia" and were taking advantage
of thc 21 day Oiient-to-Europe service of the Company.
The United States has invested
in Canada $2,500,000,000, according
11 the Bankers' Trust Company of
New York, which haB just completed a survey of Canadian industry and the amount of United States
capital invested. Of the total sum
invested, $1,200,000,000 is in bonds,
and Ihe remainder in farms, mortgages, small businesses, industrial
enterprises, banking and private
loans. It a* computed that more
than 200 branc'i factories were
o| ened in Caracla by United States
concern! in 1019, and a great number in 1020 and 1921, and that late
in 1922 the number of these came te
700.
A collie dog is reported to hav»
saved the life of a London West
girl, while accompanying the child
to a nearby store. On the way she
stopped on the C. P. R. railroad
tracks in the path of a westbound
flier. Realizing the child's peril,
the dog threw himself against her
with sufficient impact to knock her
clear of danger, and was cut to
pieces by the train before he could
regain safety.
The girl's mother tried to discour-
.-*.,• the dog from going when the
daughter started for the store, but
he went, and was the means of sbt-
ing the child's life, and died heroisH
ally as a result.
PROGRESSOFWORK
AT ALLEMBY
Railway Grews Busy Repairing Line to Mine.
Carpenters Working on
Mill
Whatever uncertainty, in respect
to the resumption of activity at Al-
ienby and Copper mountain at an
early date, that may have existed
owing to ,he easing up in preparations that followed the visit to tbe
plant some weeks ago of President
Col. J. P. Crabbs, has been dispelled
by the definite announcement made
by him in V^acouver last week, prior
to having for New York. The announcement was to the effect tbat
no time would be lost in getting the
plant in readiness for operation and
tbe past week has seen considerable
speeding up, both on the part of tbe
company in making the necessary
improvements to the plant and on
the part of tbe railway in repairing
tbe spur into the mine.
While the work on tbe railroad
will not require more tban from six
to eight weeks tbe shifty nature of
portions of the hillsides along wbicb
the track runs, requires special pre*
cautions to ensure the stability of
the steel. Tommy Beban, wbo is
engineer in charge, has established
an up to date camp, sufficient to
accommodate eighty men, whicb is
expected to be about the limit that
can be employed to advantage.
The steam tfbovel which was used
ou construction on tbe Oliver branch
ban been brought over and is now
operating, with Harry Brock in
charge. Tommy McAstoker is engi.
neer on the work irain, with Jimmy
Pride as conductor. Robert Whal|
is in charge of the extra crew, comprised of fifteen Japs, used in replacing the ties and track. Charles
Carlson is general toreman of the
whole work. Tbe wages offerd is 30
cents per hour for labor.
Immediately following Col.Crabb's
announcement a call was sent out
for twenty carpenters to work on tbe
mill at A Ienby. The services of all
availablelocal carpenters was secured
nnd an effort made to get more in
Penticton. To complete tbe number
required, however, about a dozen
had to be brought in from Van-
cover. They arrived WedneBuuy
morning and were immediately put
to work. In all, some sixty meu are
uow on the payroll.
Portions ofthe heavier machinery
to be installed will not be taken up
till tbe track is completed, but
everything will be in reudineBS for
it. Tbe work of putting il in place
will not take long and it in expected
tbat only a sbort time will elapse
between tbe completion of tbe spur
and tbe milling of ore.
At the present time the only men
required by the coinpany are carpenters and laborers. These are being taken on as fast as circumstances
germit.

Victoria, August 1.—Strong praise
for tho accounting system in use in

Judging by the harmony evidenced

nouncements of policy were made by

support of his followers by the strong
speech which ho mado, a speech
clearly showing that the administration was functioning efficiently, despite the barrage of adverso criticism
hurled at tho government by M r.
Bowsar and his supporters.
Another speaker, M. A. Mucdon-
ald, K.C, president of the Provincial
Liberal association, maintained that
the record of tho present government
was the most striking of any adminis-
tiation the province lias had.
Hou. J. H. King, foderal minister
of public works, assured the gathering that British Columbia's intetests
were being well cared for at Ottawu.
He predicted a remarkable f uturo for
the western province.
Education in British   Columbia   is
well eared fir and a marked   evidence
of the effioiedey of the system built
up by Hon. J, D. .MacLean, minister
of education, was shown in thu entrance and iiiatrinlation examination
results just issued. The examiners
were loud in thoir praise of ths papers
handled and tho percentage of successful pupils speaks well for the
touching stalls throughout tbo provinco.

An old farmer who hud boon to

bim a suit of clothes. Unfortunately,
he lost his pujehaso on bis way home.
His wife, much annoyed at his expensive carelossness, toldtho story to
the vicar.
A week or so later the vicar met
the good man and bailed bim: "By
the way, Mr. Green, have you heard
anything about your cloth?"
"Morning, noon and night   I   hoar
about it,," the farmer replied discon

u definite plan for the future of tho
lino, which promises to chango this
white elephant logucy of the former

it is expected that the plans will havo

"The well being of mankind throughout the

The cicada, or seventeen-year locust, will
appear this year in many of the states east of
the Mississippi. For sevenjoen years it lives
in the ground as a grub, then suddenly
emerges, takes wing and begins to "sing" in
the tree tops. The female lays eggs on twig
and leaf; new grabs hatch, fall to the ground
and dig in at once. The insects cause no permanent damage to mature trees, but may
seriously injure nursery stock. This year's
swarm is one of the largest and most widely
distributed of all.
Tests at the San Francisco plant of the
Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation demonstrated that a miniature Diesel engine for automobiles will drve a small car fifty miles on

engine in a car of standard make ran the machine for several months at a surprisingly
small cost. The fuel is a light oil, the same
that is now used in submarine vessels.

A farmer boy is naturally curious to find

farming.
After long   discussion,   both within   and
•vithout the industry, tie leading men in  the
iron and steel trade have decided that the

The special committee of the industry, which
no v defends the practice, asserts that since

also a real home. The two are inseparable,
and in that fact perhaps lies one of the so-

T. H. Ingram into their place of business, and the odor
being darticularly bad at that moment, they offered him
$5 if ne would locate it and remove the cause. He accepted the offer, and iu a seuoud the offensive smell had
vanished. He merely threw an old inkstand, half filled
with dead flies, out into the back yard. He was paid thc
$5 and went his way rejoicing. It's easy to make money
if you know how to do it.

Editors of Canada's Weekly Newspapers Photographed at Halifax.
NO annual convention trip which
the Canadian Weekly Newspaper Association has ever taken has
been more memorable than that
which has just been completed.
Newspaper men from all parts of
Canada—from as far west as Vancouver Island, B. C, and as far north
a? Tbe Pas,- Manitoba met together
at Toronto to board the special Canadian Pacific train that was to take
tbem by a series of easy stages to
Halifax, Nova Scotia The editors
and their wives and some children
numbered tltogethei aliout 180,
and lt took u train oi waive cars
to accommodate them The train
was made up of eight standard sleepers, two diners, a bagKage car and
s    compartment     observation    car
whioh added neatly to tha comfort
of the trip. The train wae maimed
by a picked crew of operators and
stewards and was as*scompanleti by
W. B. Howard, Assistant General
Passenger Agent, and Mr. J. Harry
Smith, Canadian Press Representative of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
The success of the trip was to a
large extent due te the organising
ability of E. Roy Sayles, Manager of
the Association.
Pulled by one of Canada's finest
locomotives tbe train made a special
run to Montreal arriving there ahead
of time schedule and the party was
Joined by many Quebec members.
Tbe next stop was at Fredericton, N.
B where the citizens Joined ln a
splendid  welcome to the travellers.
The Lieutenant Governor, and Premier Venlot of New Brunswick gave
a reception and dance ln the Legislative Chamber, and the party moved
on to St. John where similar hospitality was enjoyed. On the Canadian Pacific steamer "Princess"
the party enjoyed a delightful sail
to Digby, N. S., from where the trip
through the Annapolis Valley to
Halifax was made over the Dominion
Atlantic Railway. The wonderful
orchards and dike-lands of the Evangeline country were looking their best
and a stop was made to visit old
Fort Anne at Annapolis Royal where
much of the early history of Eastern
Canada was mad< Kentvllle's fine
band turned out witb the population
to great the newspaper people   and
here as ln most other places touched, oltizens came with autos to give
the visitors a glimpse of the surrounding country
The ancient city of Halifax outdid
herself ln hospitality, and here the
annual convention was held. At one
of the meetings it was decided that
the annual trip would next year be
to England and France. The members will thus have a chance to visit
the great Empire Exhibition at Wcni-
bly. The return trip was made via
Canadian National to Quebec where
the party was entertained by the
Canadian Pacific at the famous Chateau Frontenac. The newly elected
president of the Association Is J. E.

The Objeots of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home aid itefus-e for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Cava, frainiinj and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such '..".fortunate*, who, for the lack of such sei'-
vice, perish every year; and t) return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with nor.nil, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe vorious provinces reveals tho fact that there
are at bhe presant time nearly 2>J Infant Blind iu 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 lSnglaiid, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine Souse," 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 the present objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will tako in the Baby Bliud from overy
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged
Hooey was used by the ancient
Greeks and Romans to preserve fresb
fruits till they were desired. The
method used was to immerse the
fruit in honey rilled vessels which
were covered over so as to keep out
all foreign matter. This is extreme"
ly simple, but, nevertheless, reliable
and economical,
To t*st the worth of this novel way
of preserving, a few pears were put
into a fruit jar and sufficient honey,
warmed enough to flow like oil, was
poured over them to completely
cover tbem. After being in the jar
for several months they were re*
moved and found to be sound and
as solid as when placed there. Vege
tables having shells can also be kept
fresb and usable by the same treatment. Several cantaloupes were put
in a large eaithen jar. They were
taken out on Christmas and found
to be in as good condition as the
pears. It is essential not to use overripe fruit; the results will be better,
as ' hard article taken out of the
immersion can ba kept in tbe air for
a time before decay Bets in.
Sweet corn from whicb tbe busks
bave been removed, watermelon,
and other choice articles can be put
away during theirseason and ueed
as wished. This makes it possible to
bave cheap fresh fruits and vegeta
bles for the table on Christmas,
Easter, or any other day. None of
tbe noney need be wasted.
One feature of this method is tbe
fact that the boney seems to seal tbe
flavor. Perhaps other ways are also
satisfactory in preserving fruits, but
this oue requires the least effort. I
suggest that a small amount of fruit
be preserved by honey raisers first,!
so as to get the idea properly]
grounded. I am going to try tbe experiment this coming fall on grapes,
peaches and pi urns. Let us all get
together and help boost the market
for honey.—William A. Braun, in |
American Bee Journal.
One for Canning
During the time of George Ill's
insanity the Prince of Wales, afterwards George IV, offered to bet
Richard Brimsley Sheridan, the
dramatist and politician, tbat the
members of parliament would pay
so little attention to tbe reading ol
his speech from the throne that he
could interpolate any nonsense be
liked without anyone's showing sur-
p.ise.
Sheridan took the bet. The regent
accordingly paused in the course of
bis address andsaid distinctly,"Baa,
baa, black -heep," and tben went
on. No one took any notice of the
strange words. Chagrined at the lose
of bis wager, Sheridan asked George
Canning if he bad noticed anything
strange.
H"Ob, yes," said Canning, "I heard
the piince say, 'Baa, baa, black
sheep,' but as he was looking
straight at you at the time, I took
it for a personal allusion." °

Ph. J. Baldensperger writes
in the Bulletin of Beekeeping
of the Alpes Maritimes:
While traveling through
Spain I happened to meet a
beekeeper who had a few
colonies; I asked him where
he sold his honey. "Here are
my customers," said he, pointing to a number of children,
resplendent with health.
"Why should I go to the
druggist to buy extracts of
plants, which are bitter, when
the same medicine is found in
the honey that my bees produce, in the sweetest  shape."
Important Discovery
The most important medical discovery in recent years, accoordiog
to b di'patch from London,has been
announced by Professor G. Freyer
of Oxford university. His discovery
consists in the tiading of a method
of stripping germs causing diseases
from tb'iir protective coating of fat
which rmders tnem resistant from
vaccine '.reatmels
Hitherto tbe trouble bas been
that vaccines composed ,of dead
baccila have been unable to attack
their living counterparts because of
the latter's fat coating, and the more
virulent the baccilus, as a rule, the
more heavy the overcoat of fat it
wears.
Professor Freyer has discovered a
method of starving the germs until
their fat is gone, when they become
more susceptible «|p the vaccines.
The method was tested first in
guinea pigs inoculated with tuberculosis baccilla, witb the result that
some which were not treated died
while ottiUrs treated when the disease was far advanced were completely cured, tbeir leisons having
healed and disappeared.
At St. Mary's hospital in London
three years' tests oo sixty human
subjects made by Drs. Fields and
Western brought definite improve
ment in nearly all cises. Tbe doctors report tbat it is too soon to say
more than that the methods are
extremely promising of excellent re-
eults.

Speaking to the Canadian Club in

.''resident of the Canadian Pacific
