a rapidly growing industry of (•reat
profit to British Columbia growers,
Northern seed potatoes were found to
have greater vitality than southern
seeds and the south was constantly
replenishing its stock from tho north.
By giving government certification of
freedom from disea«e tbo department
ife establishing a market for the Brit,
ish Columbia product  he said.
A strong dels nee of the govern.
ment was made in the hgislature by
ll. G. Perry, Liberal, Fort George,
who i- also deputy speaker of the
house. He went fully into all phases
of administration, quoting exhaustive figures to piove his contention
that the administration of publio
business in British Columbia was
vastly ahead of tbat of other prov.
inces. Things for which the government was justly praised included
tbe gradual reduction of taxes, good
roads, grants fnr schools, travelling
libraries, correspondence school
ciur.-is and ro luctions on stumping
powder.
"l'lie most convincing argument
ever put ueioss tbe lloor nf Ihe
houne," was the way Mnjor R. J.
Burde, Independent, summed up
the speech ol Attorney General Man
son on the Janet Smith murder
mystery. The first law officer of tbe
crown went fully into details of the
action taken by his department to
run the trimiuul or criminals to
earth Keen criticism of the govern,
ment had couie from opposition
members, ending by their placing
on tbe order pu per a resolutjon fa«
voring the calling in of theCanadian
mounted police. Following Mr.
Maiison's speech the entire house
expressed approval and tbe resolux
Mod was withdrawn. Hon. Mr.
took occasion to praise the provincial police, a body, he declared,
second to none.
New York, Nov. 28 -Transatlantic broadcasting was termed a
"phenomenal success" following reports made by amateurs nfur tonight's foreign program by Radio
Broadcasting, the publication sponsoring tbe project.
Tbe magazine reported tbat before tbe foreign broadcasting bour,
from 11 o'clock to midnight, was
over, they were receiving reports
"by the hundred" of successful reception of programs fjom Aberdeen,
Scotland, Newcastle and Bournemouth, England,and Madrid,IS ain,
by amateurs throughout the eastern
states.
One amateur received a piano recital broadcast at Aberdeen so
plainly that he transmitted the music by telephone lo tl a magazine's
office at Garden City, L I., where
it was plainly audible.
The Radio Broadcasting laboratory succeeded in picking up Aberdeen. Scores of -amateurs also got
Madrid and many reported getting
the Newcastle aid Bournemouth
stations.
Tonight was the second night of
the Week's transatlantic broadcasts
ing program. Last nigbt only mod
erate success was attained
From the middle west it was re.
ported tbat a few amateurs had succeeded last night in picking up
stations in Lyons, France; and Lnn-
doo, Plymouth, Birmingham and
Manchester, Eugland.
In tbe far west only four persons
reported success lasr night, saying
they had succeeded in getting English stations.

Avoid Damage By
Mailing Your Christmas Parcels Early
Every business man knows the exceptional amount of business that is
done during the Christmas soason.
This heavy business means not only a
rush at the stores but als-. an exceptionally busy time at the post office
It is important, therefore, that mail-
iugs which can he made in advance of
the rush season be cleared away; for
instance, there are calendars mailed
in large quantities in December which
if held unti the last minute so cone
gest the mails that delay results.
Moreover, during this busy t me,
there is always tho greater possibility
of damagebeing done to the calendars
themselves Business men are urged,
therefore, to post calendars as oarly
in the season as they possibly can
Tho calendars will not loso any of
their attractiveness or advertising
value if this is done, and a butter
postnl service will result

In the course of a lectnre on
economics, says the Tatler, the lecturer mentioned the fact in eome
parts of America tbe population
consisted almost entirely of men.
"I can therefore iecommend the
ladies to emigrate to those districts,"
he added jocularly.
At that a young lady in the audience rose in high dukgeon and
prepared to leave tbe hall. As she
was making a rather noisy exit the
lectur r remarked with a smile: "I
did not mean, however, that it
should be done io such a hurry "

Newark, N.J., Dec. 4.—A young
bobbed.haired modern flapper is co-
inventor of one of the moat revolutionary vacuum tube | rennets inthe
history of radio,
Hoiteiise ScbiCkerling is the girl.
Her father, Conrad Sobickerling, is
known through the radio and eleotrl
cal world as tlio leading vacuum tube
inventor and producer. Bnt Sollicker-
ling doesn't agree, entirely. For ho
attributes his fame, in part at least,
to the ideas aud cooperation Hortense
has given him
In their factory here theScbicker-
lings, father and (laughter, are working on the production of a tube that
will du away entirely with A anl B
battel ies, It will get its plate and
filament current direct from the house
electric lighting plug and, Schick er
ling adds, will ho fire of any alter,,
niitine current hum or aven  of static.
The new tube can bo plugged into
i direct current socket as well, and
get just as good results. Yet it is siid
to use up less current than any other
vacuum tube now in use.
For the last two years Hortense
Schiokerling has been working with
her father in their laboratory, pro
ducing test after test to find th;s .
ideal tube Hortense, says Schickel--
ing, is one of tho hest tube makers in
the country She can make the entire
tube from beginning to end, and does
it -wiftly and eWciently.
Outside of this she can speak four
anguages, English, German, Frencb
and Spanish,
'•Before I stumbled on this new
tube," explains .Schickel ling, "1   hud
tested 1500 different types, lhe secret of the finai product lies in the
fourth element—a tiny vacuum tube
wilhin tho actual vacuum tube itself.
"'I he small tnbe acts as a tnufller
against the A C. hum of the house
current, lt is actually a spark gap in
a completo vacuum."
The entire operation of rectification, filtering and elimination of hum
takes place outside the tube, so that
it can be set into a regular socket and
the house current wires run direct to
the ftlonient terminals, 'lhe plato
terminal runs into the positive filament terminal, so that both plate and
filament use the same current.
Besides this tube, Schickorling has
produced several other kinds if radio
tubes, among them a new type designed to create pov. er. One in his
laboratory has been used to run a
jeweler's lathe.

A large number did so at once.

The Fita-Fitas, as the native soldiers of
Samoa are called, are the only American
troops who wear kilts. Their fatigue uniform
consists of a bright red turban and a .sort of
black kilt with a bright red stripe round the
border; a leather belt that carries a dagger on
the side holds the garment in placo. When
the Fita Fitts were first taken into the service
of the United States they wero provided with
more conventional dress, but, being unused to
much clothing, many of them caught oold.
The present uniform seems to be just .light: it
is light and cool and sufficiently gaudy.

F. S. Johnston, a farmer neir Morton,
Wash.*, has harvested a bumper crop of wheat
that he says came from seed taken from an
Egyptian tomb. Mr. Johnston says he got the
seeds four years ago and this year the increase
was enough to plant fifteen acres, He lias just
finished harvesiing the crop, which netted 729
bushels for an average of 48.0 bushels to the
acre. The grain is white and very hard; the
straw short, the heads prolific, and Mr. .Johnston says it is one of the best varieties of
spring wheat he has ever grown. It was not

jjThis novel method of cleaning a sewer pipe
that had become clogged is said to have been
successfully worked in a western city. A cord
more than three hundred feet long was tied to
a snapping turtle's tail, and then the turtle
was placed in one end of the pipe. It started
off at a lively gait toward the other end three
blocks away. When it got there soma two
hours later the cord was still attached to its
tail. Men who were waiting at once fastened
a scraper to the cord, with which the pipe was
soon cleared.
Of a mother, a simple but charming woman,
who died and left several small children, a
friend wrote this touching tribute: "I never
knew a braver woman. To face life's little
things dauntlessly, to finish the day's job in
spite of weariness, to answer illness with a
jest and to fight back pain for the sake of
husband and children is the highest form of
oourage. Io certain moods common, everyday
work seems rather useless, but after all it is
the pushing and pulling of simple men and
women that make civilization."
The true optimist i.s not the man who from
the side lines smiles on disaster and insists
that all's right with the world. It is the man
who with cheery energy puts his shoulder to
th■:■■ wheel when it is bemired, and with unconquerable faith rallies the weary and despondent to fresh endeavor.—Youth's Companion.

Considerable amusement was caused yesterday by what might aptly be termed the
imitative genius of a canary. Early in the
morning the steam wood sawing machine
started operations at a residence not far from
The .Sun olliee, where a canary is one of the
pel animals. The peculiar buzzing sound
emitted by thc saw when a stick of hardwood
comes in contact with it had not been heard
long ere the bird, which had too lazy to sing
for two oi three months, resumed his old-time
sprightliness and started to imitate the jazzy
music.

year's derby, nenrlnji lhe post.      Left—A fair skl-In(t enthusiast.
Below—The Chati-au Frontenac dog team  with  "Mountie," famoua
north-west husky leader Inset.
a guide to "The City of Quebec" one reads that
among other thinKs Quebec is celebrated tor its
horse races, which for more than a century were organized and kept going by tho wealthy officers ot the
British crack regiments stationed there on garrison
duty, and that tho organization of the' Quebec Turf
Olub dates back to 1789. Horse racing is still a seasonal attraction to the Ancient City. The Fall meet
brings horses and racing enthusiasts from practically
all over the continent, and has done for years, but tho
nativo Quebccer is inclined to enthuse more over the
trotting races that take place when the snow ts packed
hard on the course. Then there are horses ha knows
and really belong to him. Horses from ,4way back",
perhaps.
One has only to attend a trotting meet in Quebec
to know Just how much of the truo sporting spirit is
Inherent ln the French-Canadian. It Is not always the
one who has placed most money that is thc most voci-
'nrouB as tho trotting nags near the post. Racing is
In their blood. They excitedly shout their favourites
name, Rnd wave their arms for its encouragement, and
!f it wins,—all right. If not,—all right, It's a darn
rood horse, anyway.
ft ls perhaps the enthusiasm for the race shown by
the people of Quebec that is responsible for the con-
•Inuance of the Eastern International Do.r-Jl'.d Dolby,
held annually in that city. The Derby is supported
by winter sportsmen from all over tiie continent, and
entries are made from all parts of the continent upon
which anow falls to stay for the season; but without
tlio support of tlio people of Quebec the event couki
not bo the great success it is. On the three days for
which the Derby is scheduled, everyone who can declares a holiday and gets as close to the starters' stand _
as is possible for the crowd, and Vben the dogs come "
panting home, it is not so much the visitor, at the
Chateau as it is Jean Baptiste of Quebec *w,ho cheers
them in.
This season's Eastern International Dog-Sled Derby
has bcen definitely scheduled to take place February
19, 20 and 21st. As in former years the distance to be
covered will be 120 miles, at the rate of 40 miles more
nr less each day. Earl Brydges, winner ot last year's
Derby with the Ontario Paper Company's team, will
defend his honors in the face of much competition. An
American team won the gold trophy in 1922, and lt ls
expected that several teams will try to regain lt for
the United States. Possibly fifteen or more teams
will try to keep it from going across the border, in
eluding one of five Alaskan huskies which Is being
entered by two McGill students. This is headed by
"Dan Jo" which led three teams to victory In three
swoepstakes in the Yukon district last year.

Three Rivers, Quebec, Hat New Station
Citizens of Three Rivers, Quebec, regard the recent inauguration of tbe new Canadian Pacific Railway Station
as marking » nt -.*/ epoch in the life of their city inasmuch aB it affords proof of the status already attained by
Troio-Rtvioros as an industrial centre and of the greater prominence it is expected to occupy in the future. The new
i ti'.tion building is the most up-to-date and magnificent of its kind in eastern Canada. Of its construction cost, not
less than $^00,000 represents the amount of money spent in Three Riven.
Som- Iden as to thu way Three Rivers has developed may he gathered from a few remarks made by E. J. Hebert, fint
uat-tislant general passenger agent, Canadian Pacific Railway, in proposing a toast at the banquet that marked the
official optsuing', "Until 1S75 navigation wsb the only transportation facility" he said. "Then the Northern Railway

That the Land of Evangeline

000,000 bushels of apples abroad
annually was the recent statement
of F. G. J. Comeau, general freight
and passenger agent, Dominion Atlantic Railway. A number of British apple growers and buyers are
at present putting large tracts of
land under fruit. With the apple
growing industry increasing from
year to year, at the rate of two to
three hundred per cent per decade,
only twenty per cent of the orchard
land available in the province is
yet under fruit.

agable. Cigarette butts and other
clues led to the uncovering of the
extra weight, which turned out to
be a miner. As the man had taken
this cheap but decidedly dangerous
way of reaching civilization in order to see his sick wife, he was not
detained or punished.
