Victoria, Ool. 9. —Deppitethe defeat of Dr. K. K. MicDonali), provincial secretary, in the North Okanagan hy-eleclior, the 01m r government will face Ihe new legislature on November 3 wilh every
probability of getting through the
session unscitched Alth ugh Dr.
MacDons d's Hefesl was reiiretied,
friends and political fotp of the ad-
ministration concede tbe Liberals
will be in power four years honce,
snd that a Liberal Lahor coalition
will give the premier comparatively
easy sledding.
The premier's* announcement Sat*
urday that the Irgislture will convene on November 3 leads to tbe
belief tbat the session will bea sbort
snd snappy one. It will probably be
over on Saturday, December 20,
Little contentious legislation is on
the agenda. Thia is due chiefly to
the fact tbat for tbe past four years
social, labor and financial legislation
bas be-n kept well abreast of tbe
times, if not in advance of other
provinces. Barring liquoj amendments and the final settlement of
tbe beer question, no cloud appears
on tbe leg slative horizon and tbe
administration shouid have no difficulty in getting through tbo session

Helpful Hints for Post
|Office Boxholders
Ask all your correspondents to use
you r box number.
Always bring your key with you;
never use a penknife of other instrument to open the box. If you lose tho
key, get the postmaster to change the
leck, in case the key falls into bail
S|When emptying your box be sure
to see that none of your mail remains
caught in the box anywhere;also that
nothing intended for any oue else is
mixed in with it. If so, it should be
promptly handed in ut the wieket, to
prevent delay in delivery.
Close the door of y ur box ;:s you
open it—with your key. To slam the
door -onetimes causes the breaking
of ihe glass, and in any case, injures
tbe look and in time reduces effective
ness. Be sure not to leave the door
uii'ueked, or to leave tho key n the
look, or you invito loss of mail mat ter.
When anything is wrong w ith the
ook, or if tho glass is broken, notify
the postmaster at onco, in ordor that
it may be attended to.
If you have a combination look, bo
careful as to who learns tho combination, If it becomes too widoly known,
get it changed.
Attend promptly to notice cards
asking you to call at tho wicket and
thus avoid unnocessajy dolay to mail
told thero for you,
Children or messengers Bhould not
bo ullowod to clear your box unless
you are sure they are absolutely re-
ittble, anl should in any ease be cure-
fully instructed on tho above points.
Carelessness may moan loss of mai1.
Provide satchels in which to cany the
mail, if possible.

The first metal put to practical use was copper, made into knives and other implements
at least 6000 years ago.

"The Tale of Two Brothers," so far as anyone now knows, is the oldest existing piece of
fiction. It was written thirty two centuries
ago by Enana, a scribe of Thebes, who was
librarian in the palace of King Mano-ita,identi-
fied i y some as the pharaoli who held the
Israelites in bondage. The tale, which is written on nineteen sheets of papyrus, appears to
have been invented to entertain the oldest of
the princes who subsequently ascended the
Egyptian throne. This strauge old manuscript now reposes in the British museum,
where it is known as the D'Orbiney manuscript. Another old book, written more than a
thousand years ago, mentions jwo breeds of

Medical Research.   Drs.  W. H. Brown,  L

mors under observation.   A comparison of

coincidence between the decrease in tumor
growth   and   the   periods of maximum and
minimum sunlight, that is, in   summer   and

ocenrred at the times of sudden and rapid
changes in the hours of sunshine a day.   The

"Try This Service Tonight"
The Trans-Canada Limited, the crack transcontinental express
of the Canadian Pacific Railway, operated from May to September, completed its 1924 schedule on September 13th, when Its
last trains started and on September 17th these trains steamed
into the termini at Montreal and Vancouver, bringing to a close
one of tho service's most successful seasons. The train covers
the 2.8SC miles of its run between the two cities in 90 hours and
its Toronto-Vaucouver run of 2,707 miles in 86 hours.
Mr. C. II. Foster, Passenger Traffic Manager, summing up
tlu. season's performance, gave out some remarkably interesting
figures which afford a partial Insight into the magnitude of the
tank ot maintaining such a service. The Trans-Canada Limited
began its runs this year on May 18th, and before being discontinued made 119 trips ln each direction, or 238 in all. The
equipment of the train is limited to one baggage, one dining rar,
four standard sleepers, one 10-compartment car Vancouver to
Montreal, and one 10-compartment car Toronto to Winnipeg,
with a drawing room-3-compartment observation sleeper Montreal to Vancouver, plus a local sleeper on the west-bound
movement only from Port William to Winnipeg. Thus the ma*d-
mum accommodation available in each direction between the
East and Winnipeg is forty-eight sections, twenty-three compartments and five drawing rooms, while between Winnipeg and
the Co-int there are forty-eight sections, thirteen compartments
and five drawing rooms. The average number of passengers
on tho train at night varies from seventy-five to 110 on different
sections of the line, but for the 119 days the train was in service
last season there was a one-night use of approximately 100,000 berths. The
east-bound and west-bound trains together covered 6,292 miles every day,
which includes the distance between Montreal and Vancouver, 2,886 miles,
and between Toronto and Sudbury, 2G0 miles, covered by each train and its
Toronto-Sudbury connection. Thus tho season's mileago was 758,748 for
the 238 trips, or three Umes the distance from the earth to the moon.
Each day four Trans-Canada trains were in motion over the Company's
lines in each direction. At 8 A.M. each day, one was west-bound between
Cartler and Chaploau, one between Kenora and Winnipeg, one between Medicine Hat and Calgary, and one between North Bend and Vancouver, while at
tliat hour one east-bound was approaching Olacier, one approaching
Regina, one east of Port William and one between Chalk River and Ottawa.
Ten complete rets of equipment, of which four were in motion each way
every day and one was being cleaned, refitted and turned round at each end
ut llw run-, were required to maintain the service.
Powswful locomotive*
are changed torty-
eiurht times dally In the
movement of the Trnnn-
Cnnadn train* and ten
sets ot equipment arc in
coisstant operation.
The year's schedule called for 22 changes of engine on every Trans-
Canada run from Montreal to Vancouver and two engines for the
Toronto-Sudbury connection made by each train. There were 48 engine
tuns daily for the service. Including these engine-stops, the trains made
only 26 stops on their whole run. It is on this steady movement at a
uniform speed over long distances and not on high speed that the trains
maintained their fast schedules over tho transcontinental journey and lho
elimination of all but essential stops resulted to the smooth running for
which it Is noted. Owing to the necessity of changing trains crews on
such a long run, about 14 crews, or about 84 men, were required for one
trip on each train, while 48 sleeping and dining-car employees wore
required for each trip on one train or nearly 400 men for this branch of the
Trans-Canada service. None of the hundreds of employees whose duties
also associate them with the Trans-Canada Limited, but who do ndt travel
with it, is included in these figureB.
The Devil's Potholes
National Park, is one of the
natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain region. A vast
cleft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step
•cross it easily, draws from the
tourist expressions of awe and
wonder at the power of accumulated forces of water.
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the Maligne
River, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
join the quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through the narrow
gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
eddies being churned to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo   against
Entrance to Cave, Maligne Canyon
the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From tho footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced tbe effect of the waters on the rocky
sides. Here and there, seemingly
tired of the effort to stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
the gorge appear to have leaned
toward one another, until an intervening rock cast itself into the narrow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists-
feet, as they stand admiring the
glint of the noon-day sun upon the
falling water.
Maligne Canyon is a mecca for
visitors to Jasper Park Lodge, the
splendid log-cabin hostelry of the
Canadian National Railways, and
rightly so, for there are few na
tural rock formations to equal in
interest those found in the canyon
The Devil's Potholes, curious indentations in the solid rock over
which the Maligne River (lowed before the Canyon was worn to its
present depth, are holes worn deep
in the surface rock by the action
of swirling flood waters, when a
largS stone has been whirled round
and round in an untiring circle
until the stone itself was worn
small and round, and deep circular
holes have been ground into the
surface of the rock, remaining as
mute testimony to the power of
rusl ing waters.
Maligne Canyon, while one of the
most wonderful formations to be
found in the Rocky Mountains, is
but one of the many natural . attractions of Jasper National Park
In addition there are the snowcapped peaks on every side; the
glaciers of Mount Edith Cavell and
The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, the Hoodoos of the
Cavell motor highway and hundreds of others. Wild animal life
is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to the
tired holiday-seeker.
And in addition to the natural
beauties of the Park, a commodious
iog cabin bungalow hotel; with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It was
the ddition of the comforts nnd
conveniences of Jasper Park Lodge
to the beauties of Jasper National
Park which caused one noted
American traveller to exclaim: "At
last I have found (he plare, where
God and man go fifty-fifty ts
produce perfection."

"Lot mo have a pot of orange pe-
koo toa."
How often wo haar this expression
in restaurants and tearooms. Yet, if
you asked "What is orange p;koe?"
tlie answer would almost invariably
be, "I dou't know, but I do know
that it is supposed to be good tea."
Orange pekoe is simply the name of
tho leaf and the distingnishing marli
of the size of the leaf. It is not arbitrarily nor necessarily the best tea by
any means You may have good, bad
or indifferent orange pekoe tea.
Goodness of the leaf is judged by
the Havor, which depends upon two
things, tho elevation at which the
plant is grown aud the care exercised
in the manufacture of the tea.
The higher the elevation of the tea
garden the richer the leaf is in essential oil, which constitutes its flavor.

embankment flare up with one accord
as if by magic. He walked up to the
nearest policeman and said in surprised tones:
"Tell me, m-nnie, wha' lichted a'

The policeman scratched his head
and thought hard. "Beg pardon,

Irwin S. Cobb, the famous American humnrist, has been hunting in
the St. Maurice valley, served by
Canadian Pacific lines. This is by
no means his first trip to Canadian
hunting and fishing centres, as he
is a keen sportsman and has visited
the wilds in Ontario, Quebec, Nova
Scotia and New Brunswick.

Some interesting facts were made
public by E. J. Belleisle, superintendent of thc fish and game de-
paiiment of the Province of Quebec,
when in Montreal recently. The
province is now teeming with wild
life, he says, mainly because of its
conservation policy, whereby preserves are rented to fish and game
clubs on the understanding that

500 such clubs employing a total of
over  1,000 wardens.
