in tho Farron railway coach explosion
on October 29, 1924, and that inform

his father's place. Messrs. Plotnikoff
and Veriehagin said they were able

Brief History
of Spitzenberg
The Sun this week received a thrilling story of
Arctic ad\entures entitled
"My First Winter PolarBear"
direct from Spitzenberg. If
The Sun, after due delibera
tion, finds that it would be
to its advantage to increase
its circulation in that part of
the world, the story will be
printed in an early issue. Our
readers will readily remember
that Spitzenberg is the place
that was first made famous
for having originated the
Spitzenberg apple. In later
years it has gained con ;ider-
able popularity as the summer resort from which the
airplanes hop off on their
jour eys to the north pole.
This brief description should
give our readers who may not
have heard of the place before
a comprehensive conception
of Spitzenberg, and no more
light need be thrown ou the
subject except to say that, as
the community bore a Danish
postage stamp, (he island is
evidently the property of the
kine of Denmark.

A world-championship Dog Derby to the "Top of the
World and Back" will bo run for the first time in the
hiBtory of dog-mushing at the Banff Winter Carnival this
year, according to plans now being made by the Carnival
committee under President. Standish. 'i'he course from
Calgary to the Great Divide and back to Banff will be the
longest dog race in tho world and will exceed the famous
Pas Derby by 23 mile**. The Strongheart Trophy and one
thousand dollars wili go to tho winner.
From Calgary, the starting point, the dog teamB will
t-avel to a. height of 5,300. feet over a distance of 133
miles. This point is the Great Divide, the backbone of
the North American continent, which in the Canadian
Rockies separates Alberta from Britinh Columbia. The
contestants will then return to Banff via Lake Louise,
completing tho distance of 173 miles. The course lies
over the most fugged scenery in America and will be the
mo.xt unique run over made by dog and sled.
This world-championship dog derby will be made an
r.nnual event at the Banff Winter Carnival from now on.
Among the famous mur.hers who have already signed up
for the race are Ike Mills with hi" team of famous all-
blacks; Harry Knight, thc ]9-ytar-old boy who has
twice already won the Strongheart Trophy and will have
to win it only thin year to (iorne into nossession of it; Jim
Boyce, Fred Pepper, George Child and others of less note.
The end of the race will be celebrated by a big buffalo
barbecue at Lake ivliimowanka, seven mile*« trom Banff.
A special train will run from Calgary to Banff to allow
those who aw the teams start to view the finish.
The Banff Winter Carnival, which lias now become
one of the big Canadian winter classics, will extend over
two weeks thia year, from February 3 to the 17th.
Another feature of this year's events will be the ski-
jumping contests over the new, enlarged hill, which will
be participated in by Nels Nelson, the Canadian Pacific
Railway brakeman who holds the world's championship
in both the amateur and professional classes.
To enable the winter visitors to Banff to Bee something
of the scenery, Bill Pottn, famous Rocky Mountain guide,
will bring in twenty horses to be used to pull ski-jorers and
tobogganers to scenic points in the surrounding mountains.
Other features of the ice carnival will be the ladies'
hockey championships and skating contests for all
classes; swimming contests in the famous hot sulphur
pools; ski and ski-joring races and the packing and saddle
contests by the famous Rocky Mountain guides of West
Canada. Dog teams will be used to taxi the visitors
instead of the familiar Banff Bummer automobile. TheBe
teams will be provided by the Brewrt-ir Transport Company. The city of Calgary having this year discontinued
their own carnival to join forces with the Banff classic. It
is expected that the coming Banff Carnival will be tke
biggest in the history of the Rockies.

- A determined efiort seems to  be made  in
certain quarters to foist the immigration question on the present session of parliament as
the paramount issue beforo the country.   The
Sun can not agree with this element.    It believes that a wise regulation  of our internal
affairs, so that the people now here will become   more   prosperous  than they  are, will
automatically solve the immigration problem.
But  whatever steps  parliament may take to
accelerate the influx of people and capital, on
one point we have formed a decided opinion,
i-e.,against financially assisting people into the
country.    Persons in need of financial assistance are, in the majority of cases, either indolent or inefficient.   This is a class of settlers
that Canada does not need.   Canada is not a
counjry that should havo to resort to buying
her population.    To the person with an ordi
nary amount of brains and a  willingness to
work and a determination  to succeed   she
offers opportunities that no otlier country in
the world can give the  prospective settlers.
Canada has room for millions of immigrants,
but if she does not get the right kind she will
be better off without them.

A new way to give radium treatments of
any prescribed strength very uniformly is to
apply radioactive leather. Prof. Taffarelli of
Turin, Italy, incorporated radinm salts in tanning and found that the prepared skins had
acquired their curative power. It is thought
that they combined into a uniform compound
with probably the albumens ofthe skin. As
the amount of radium salts can be regulnied,
tho strength of the leatherj can be made as
desired. Tho leather has lhe advantage over
many other means of radium treatments in
that it is flexible and can be applied over a
large area and to any part of the body surface
The Sphinx has begun to crack, according

discovery of the break was made recently
when the sand which is constantly encroaching on the Sphinx was cleared away. Dnririg
the work a new tomb was discovered. The
decoration of the interioj of the tomb was

The efforts  of the United States govern-
nent tn increase the volume and the rapidity
in shipments of crude rubber from the middle
east are   being watched with trepidation by
Brazilian producers, who are naturally heartily in favor of a stand-pat attitude with regard
to the limitation of rubber on tho part of the
British government.   They want to retain the
temporary advantage given them  by abis restriction. One large B.iazilian state (Manaos)
has already nearly paid a debt under which it
has staggered for years from the proceeds of
the rubber boom.   The general attitude of
Amazon rubber men is one of getting out of
it all they can because of tbe probability that
the   high   pjices  will not continue.    Coffee,
cocoa   and   rubber have   beeu the principal
fractors in the recent rise of the Brazilian
milreis in exchange.   The effect of the sharp
increase   in   the price of rub bea has so far
hardly been felt, because very little exporta

Poems From Other Lands
The Armenian Maiden
In the hush of the spring night dreaming
The crescent tnuon have you seen,
As it shimmers on apricots gleaming,
Through velvety masses of green.
Have you seen, in a June tide nooning,
A languorous full blown rose
In the arms of the lilies swooning
And yielding her sweets to her foos?
Yet the moon in its course and the roses
By Armenia's maiden pale,
When she coyly and slowly discloses
The glories beneath her veil,
And a lute from her mother receiving,
With a blnsh that a miser would move,
She treads a soft measure, believiag
That music is sister to love
Like a sapling her form in its swaying,
Full of slender and lissomy grace
As she bends to the time of her ploying,
Or glides with a fairy light pace.
The lads for her beauty are burning,
The elders hold forth,on old age,
But the maiden Hies merrily spurning
Youth, lover, and matron and sage.

trails which we call telephone lines are
ready to carry long distance conversations at speeds ranging from 8,000 to
178,000 miles per second. When speed
counts—Long Distance.

f" imparalively few of the thousand;; of miles of railroad
i.'in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
r; ;anizatipn which does not rely to a ureater or lesser
extent on electricity as an aid to efficient operation and
service. Electricity plays an important part in all of the
great Railroad Shops through the country. Some trains
nnd cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored in batteries. Bridges are operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices are iti constant use which
beside being labor saving do away with the human ele-
rr -nt which might make for inefficiency. Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of tlio Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are moro urgently required.
To the average layman an automatic signal is just a
signal, and the general public is only interested in it
bd auso it giveB added protection, or rather eliminates
possible danger from the portion of track which it governs.
To the railroad official it is more. It acts as watchman
against broken rails, open switches, a fouled track or any
other obstruction.   Through a circuit in thc rail thi

that another train is occupying the block, or that thi

And while, it awaits a through signal, trains follow;      In

A perfect system.    No electrical circuit .— no •' n ugh
signal — no train may pass.
The value of this system in the Rockies can hardly

Soviet Russia Now Plans Bigger
Wool Production
Ititestan family of thc prosperous farming peasant class.
Tho visit to the United States, nt
this time, of Michael S. Pcreferko-
vltslt, manager'Of the live-stock department of thc Soviet Russian government, Prof. Michel F. Ivanoft of
a Moscow agricultural university,
and N. N. Klebnik, official interpreter, carries with it "all the sicnlfl-
cance of a stop to progressive and
modern methods In tho new Russia.
According to these three representatives of the Soviet government,
Russia now has about 80,000,000
sheep and hundreds of millions of
head of other live stock.
Rambouillet rams have been purchased by them, not to Increase tha
number cr sheep, but to improve
quality. It ls expected that a better
grado of wool will bo produced by
crossing of breeds. In this connection, sheep shearing machinery was
bought to supplant the old-time hand
blades. This In itself is expected to
.net-ease the wool crop about 7%, not
because the machine shears closer
than hand blades, but because it removes the wool evenly and in an.
unbroken blanket, leaving no ridges
on the sheep.
Russia ls anxious to enlarge its
textile business with a view to producing its own wool for manufac-

turlng purposes. Another committee

Admittedly, there is great need ln
Russia for farming implements as
the Russian farmer now has practically all the land he wants, but is
unable to develop all of his ground
because of lack of farm machinery.
Another great need ls dairy machinery such as milking machines,
cream separators, pasteurizing machinery, horse and cow clipping machines and butter-making machinery.
M. PerefcrkoviLim said he Intended
lo buy more than 6,000 sheep, but
owing to misinformation as to the
best buying season, he arrived tn this
country too late to get all he wished,
and so expects that next year ua
.nany as twenty men will be sent io
this country to make these purchases.
Russia in d.-jing everything possible
to improve farming and di trying
methods. Graduates of agricultural
schools are teaching farmers and
dairymen modern methods and the
use of modern machinery.
Many things point to Russia as
one of the world'u great future
sources of dairy products.
