Tbe point to be obse ved was mainly
this: If tne only known cure today

increase man's normal resistance or
uelf-cnrative pnwei?
Tnea« etsp-j included two tr.nin
ftctors, namely, thc use of tbe
natural uhysici-inf-' "t operators of
the body, lbe muscle.1*, which under
scientific instruction can bf used to
stimi'late circulation and eliminate*'; correct foods of unde atured

as well aa stimilatc metabolic action.
Only one set of organs had tbe
power to iocreuse or stimulate blood
circulation; tbese were-the muscles.
Anyone who had made a really
scientific study of tbese organs and
examined every type of worker from
lumberjacks to clerk', could realize
bow tbe unbalanced effecs of overused muscles against underused
could materially affect circul -tion
or impose actual interference on
Ifanction.
Dr. Dorchester stated that the
true cure for cancer would be fouud
by study along these lines. Diet
and movement, instead of ruppres-
sive measures whicb sent be toxins
back into tbe body, must be studied
properly.

NATURE THE ONLY

Speaking on "What Cures nnd

a large audience, Dr. F. E. DorcheB
tet explained tbe initial causative
factors in disease, Bays tbe Evening
Sun. Referring to the prominence
given cancer of late, be pointed out
that, acoordiog to tbe most euiii tint
medical specialists in tbis diseaae,
do cure bad yet been found.
On the contrary, be said, Dr.
Wild, professor of therapeutics at
Manchester universi y, bad stated
that while no cure bad been found,
yet tbere were many instances
where cures bad occurred with no
treatment of auy kind. Dr. Wild
remarked that evidently ceuain
prooosses bad occurred in tbe b idy
of wbich medical science *ae unable to explain.
Dr. D ircbeeter then referred lo a

minal contents entirely involved,
instead of cutting the cancer, tbe
patient was sewn up agaiu and told
tbere was do hope. He went bome to
die. but is now living in fair health,
ten years later.
It is wonderful what extraordi-
gary power the body has to heal itself, even when baudicapped by
man-inflicted millstones. If medical
science can produce any adequcte

There is an old saying that some
men are tough enough to chew
nails. It is not likely that iron in
thif fnrm will ever become a popu»
Iar item of diet, even tbough medical men tell us that Ja certain amount
of iron in our food is necessary for
bodily health. Fortunately, Nature
knew about this long before man
ever thought about it, and tbe iron
tbat is essential for tho dourishmeni
is found insufficient quantities and
in digestible form in certain natural
foods Honey is one of these, and it
is difficult to imagine a more pleasant method of supplying tbe body
witb iron than by eating honey.
Plants are able to feed upon tbe
minerals in tbe soil, but man bas
more delicate digestive apparatus
and can not resort to such first-hand
methods for supplying his mineral
requirements. The nectar wbich is
distilled by the flowers of certain
plants is comparatively rich in iron;
tbis in turn is gathered up tbe bees
aud in tbe it is changed into honey.
The darker honeys are as a rule
richer in iron, although all honey
can supply it in sufficient quantities
for ordinary health purpoes.
['Honey is an ine*t2uustible iron
mine,"says the French writer, Alio
Caillas, in his book, The Treasures
in a Drop of Honey. "IroD, so useful to plants, has filtered into tho
nectar, then into tbe honey, by the
aid of the bee. It is tbere usually in
combinations of phosphates, in a
very soluble, easily digestible, easliy
assimilable form, lt supplies the
dessert required by our iron-hungry
system, an excellent rebuilderof
physically and nervously run down
organs."

Height of Optimism
Col. William Mitchell said
at a dinner in Washington:
"There ac times when
optimism is mre foolishness.
Some of our &'r force optimists ramind me of the street
musician who was playing
"Christians, Awake" on a
corner in a driving snow-
sjorm on Christmas day.
"A pretty girl passed, and
the mnsician, as he tooted
away, squinted down at his
shabby clothes and said to
himself optimistically:
" 'How lucky it's only my
shoes wot's full of holes.
They dou:t show at all in this
deep snow.'"
EXCEPTIONALLY
MILD WINTER
The present winter in southern
British Columbia, In fact through*
out tbe province, has been remarks,
ably mild. Fret-h raspberries and
strawberries were enjoyed Christmas
time and Bowers have been blooming sinoe the middle of Decemher in
some sections of tbe province. A
letter just received by tbe colonization aud agricultural department of
tbe Canadian National jail ways
from a correspondent at Terrace, a
young orcharding settlement on tbe
Skeena river, gives the following
interesting weather news*. "We
have had a vejy mild winter bere.
There bas been no Bleighiog and tbe
Skeena is running open, no ice
having formed bo far Bees and
bears have been out for a month,
and wild geese are here again, having a feast in tbe clover and alfalfa
fields and on what remains of last
season's gardens. There ie no frost
in tb» ground and some people are
spading up their gardens. Since tbe
middle of December garden flowers
have been blooming all along the
Skeena from Prince Rupert to Hazelton. In the interests of the timber
business, everyone is hoping for
colder weather and snow."

'■Two men were disputing as to the weight
of an inch ot rainfall. "I read somewhere that
it is 101 tons of water to the acre," said one.
"No," said the oiher, "I'm positive the correct
figure is 113 tons. The weather bureau of
the United States department of agriculture
says that both are right. The rainfall in the
first instance was reckoned by the long ton,
or 2240 pounds, the common ton in Great
Britain. The long to is used for some pur

Recollections of My Children
Ne'er a melon cen 1 eat,
But calls to mind my children dear;
Ne'er a chestnut crisp and sweet,
But makes the lov'd ones seem more near.
Whence did they come, my life to cheer?
Before mine eyes tbey seem to swoop,
So that I may not even sleep.
What use to me the gold and silver hoad?
What use to me the gems most rich and rare?   .
Brighter by far—ayel bright beyond compare—
The joys my children to my heart affordl

Windermere Prize Spuds Are Famous
-s*s*liideraere District Priie Winners of Fanners Institutes Advisory
Board's Cup and the Murray Shield In 1923 at Victoria, B.C.
PT over forty yeara,the Windermere district of B.itish
Columbia has been famous for the quality of the
potatoes produced there. Back in 1884 tho late Francis
Patrick Armstrong of Sorel, Quebec, one of the younger
sona of Chief Justice James Armstrong who had wandered
out into the mountains with the construction of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, was busy raising potatoes on
his ranch on the eastern shore of the Columbia Lake.
He did this from seed which he had brought from the
tobacco plains of Montana.
Near the centre rf tho Windermere district, Columbia
Lake forms one of the main sources of the Columbia
River. On his isolated ranch, Armstrong raised his
famous Spuds and in boats made from whipsawn lumbor
took them to the construction camps of the* Canadian
Pacific Railway one hundred and fifty milej down the
Columbia-river. His wholesome product became so well
known that his ranch lost the name "Plains of the
Nativity," given it in 1846 by the Reverend Father
■•. Pierre de Smet, and became known as the Armstrong
Ranch.
Later Armstrong took up steamer navigation and
others took his place as growers of the potato, among
them Rufus Ashton Kinpton. Robert Randolph Bruce,
now lieutenant governor of the province of British
Columbia, wai nother of the early big producers. He
■old his crop* at the mine 4.
Interest in the growth of potatoes in the Windermere
district never waned but the growers in the district did
not really waken up to the possibilities of widely commercializing their fine potatoes until the first important
Jrovincial potato show beld in Grand Forks, B.C. in
922. After winning many prizes, more care was taken
in the growth of the plants and the study of varieties
until It was decided that the netted gems, Cambridge
Russets, and Wee McGregors were the varieties best
suited for the district.
The Windermere District Potato Growers Association
swept the boards at each succeeding potato show with
these two grades. On twoj of the throe succeeding
occasions, including the 1925 show, they won the Farmers
Institutes Advisory Board's Cup, given as an annual
trophy to the district within the province making the

Electro-plating a Canadian Railway Operation
•rantis-raisM   shswlas aleotm-platlng operations at the Angus Shops, Montreal.    No. 1 shows Uw tanks In whioh small articles sue I
im process.     Ihe teat below explain* the other photograph* folly.
I far pUtlag, aad Na. I th*
Passengers on the Trans-Car.ada ana other Canadian trains have often
admired the tableware with which the dining cars are equipped, but
comparatively few of the travelling public appreciate the extent to which
electro-plating enters into every day use on a Railway. As a matter of
fact, practically all metal hardware pp.na of passenger equipment interiors are plated, many of the engine parts, Including the copper reflector Of the head-light are plated, and various platings are used, ou a
thousand and one articles which enter daily into the life of a railroader.
The traveller notices the silver plate perhaps more than any other,
bnt many metals are used by the railroad companies. Cold, for instance,, is used by the Canadian Pacific for plating- pepper caster tops
and similar articles, copper is used on lighting and other metal car fixtures, zinc on refrigerator hardware, nickel on kitchen utensils, tin on
trainmen's lanterns, mercury on telegraph elements and aluminum or
lead on miscellaneous articles.
At its Angus Shops, Montreal, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
has quite an extensive plant where the most of its electroplating is carried on. The method used by this Company Is a simple one but none the
less effective.
The articles to be plated are first chemically cleaned, after which
they are usually hung from a metal bar Into a long vat where they ure
Immersed in a chemical solution which varies wilh the metal to be .*.-
posited. The electric current, which is of low voltage, Is oow icb '. flic
i pole to the metal plate or plates, and the negative to the
itt* articles to be plated are suspended.   As tits electric cur
rent flows from the plating metal to the suspended article^ the metal If
carried through the solution and deposited ln the form of a thin coating
over the entire surface of the required article.
This process is well illustrated ln No. 2, which shows two electric
headlight reflectors ln the process of receiving silver plating. In this
case the plate of silver is suspended ln the centre of the reflector, which
ls filled with cyanide of potassium solution, and the electric current flows
from the plate to the reflector which Ib, Itself, the negative pole.
Illustration No. 3 ehows the next step ln tiie treatment of the headlight reflector, which, by the way, gives the highest concentration of light
known. This ls hand 'burnishing, the operator burnishing two reflectors
in a working day. For articles which can be readily polished by a
rotating buffing wheel, this is accomplished in the manner shown ln No. 4.
Upon completion of the polishing operation, articles to be so treated are
placed in a metal container and, by means of a small compressed air gun,
sprayed with suitable lacquer. It it ls desired to oxidise .the plated
article ir order to make lt harmonize with woodwork br other material,
as Is often thc case with copper platings, lt is exposed to heat or vapor,
or immersed in some solution prior to the application of the finishing
coat of lacquer.
Tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company was the first large corporation in (i.i.ida to instal its own ek tro-platin-** plant, but during the last
few yesr- this melt" i oT protecting metal from oxidation has developed
lite an industry and one which employs a large number of Cnnmitaa
workmen.
