Discovery of German
Scientist Will, Itis Believed, Prevent the Disease
Liverpool, April 24—What was
claimed as a distinct advance in can
cer research w s announced at a
meetidg of tbe Liverpool cancer hosi-
pital recently,
Dr. H. M. Mitchell,the surgeon at
tbe hospital, said tbat a leading
scientist, whose name be was not
prepared to disclose, claimed tbat
by means of a cleverly devised apparatus be could now examine a few
drops of a patient's blood and detect
cancer in its early stages io any
organ of the body. Further tban
this, by a similar bload teet six
months after an operation, he was
able to tell whether the operation
had been successful in emoving all
traces ol cancer from tbe organs
Dr. Mitchell afterwards, Jn an in«
terview, staled tbat tbe discovery in
question had been made by a German scientist under wbom be had,
studied. "In tbe mrt method," he
said, "instruments are employed for
measuring blood reactions spestro-
SBopicalty. Ordinary blood examined in tbis way gives certain
bands of color, and tbis scientist bas
discovered tbat in a pre-cancerous
condition tbe blood gives quite dif«
ferent reactions."
Proceeding, Dr. Mitchell said be
had witnessed in Liverpool a private
demonstration of the new method,
and the findings to whicb he had
referred in bis speech were support--'
ed there and* also at the demonatra»
tions wbicb. bad been given elsewhere. "The method," be added,
"is all in keeping with the best
tendencies of modern medical research. It is designed to prevent
rather than cure.
"Its clinical application will undoubtedly be to enable doctors to
detect c.ncerous conditions befere
tbey have developed into actual
growths, and then other methods of
clinical treatment, sucb for instance

Bank Clearings Show
That British Columbia
Is Making Definite Progress
Vic oria April 29.—Public men
in this province and all over the
couoery are declaring without reservation that business in tbe Dominion is definitely on the upgrade.
Tbis has been borne out by tbe annual reports of various banking
institutions and related in public
speeches by men who are in touch
with economic conditfons.        •>
It has atso been possible for tbe
average individual to draw bis own
conclusions in tbis connection from
the bank clearings of tbe twenty
nine centers which report to tbeir
respective clearing bouses at the
close of business each week. From
the beginning of tbe present year
there has been noted a substantial
increase in more tban twenty of
these centers over the corresponding
week of 1925. By tbose familiar
with trading in general this is taken
to mean that Canada is definitely on
the higb road to prosperity.
In this connection tbe three principal cities of British Columbia may
claim pride of place, for tbe weekly
clearing returns from January I up
to and including tbe week which
ended with the ulose of business on
Aprfl 23, tbere were only two weeks
in tbat period whicb did not reveal
•a gain for Victoria over tbe corresponding weeks of last year; in
Vancouver tbere were  four  weeks
which dropped below 1925; in New
Westminster three—actually nine
cases of decreases compared with
fortys-two increases in the seventeen
weeks under review,
What thie means in revived business in British Columbia, as far as
these three cities alone ure concerned, is shown in tbe combined
clearings for the seventeen weeks of
1936, which total no Itss a sum
than 8322,061,097 compared with
with $2S3,378,200 for the Bame
seventeen weeks in 1925—a gain of

Uncrowned King of a Happy Valley
Robert Randolph Bruce has recently been appointed Lieut. Governor of British Columbia, as the
representative of King George in
that province of Canada. Like
many another successful Canadian,
he came from Scotland, about
thirty years ago, bringing with
him a frock coat, a tall hat, and a
bundle of introductory letters. He
was the son of the minister of the
fiarish from which George Stephen
ater Lord Mountstephen, then
President of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, had come, and so the first
office where he presented himself
was that of T. G. Shaughnessy,
then general manager. In a very
few minutes he was given a jol>,
but as he was going out tlie door,
"T. G." called after him, "Young
man, if you want to get on in this
country, shed that coat."
Mr. Bruce must have obeyed instructions, for he haa been "getting
on" until his recent appointment
seems to be as near the top as any
Canadian could ever be. And, coincident with his own development,
has come about the development of
the Windermere Valley in British
Columhia, where he has made his
home for some years. Mining interests first took him, back in 1889,
to the upper reaches of the Columbia River, where he commenced
operations on the Sitting Bull
claim on Boulder Creek, a tributary of Horse Thief Creek, near
the spectacular Lake of ihe Hanging Glaciers. Later he left this for
a new claim called Paradise, from
which has sprung the appelation
Happy Valley. The village of
Windermere, on tho eastern side of
Lake Windermere, was the first to
take root, and here Mr. Bruce
settled. He built a bungalow, and
planted a garden, a garden which
today is a riot of exquisite flowers,
a regular (lower show for those
visitors at the Canadian Pacific
Bungalow camp opened a year or
so ago a short distance along the
lake shore from the, Bruce estate.
Not only did this indefatigable
gardener plant lovely flowers in hir.
garden, but realizing the difficulties
of keeping miners at their jobs, he
planted fresh vegetables in sufficient quantities-for his men to have
a dic4 of fresh vegetables instead
of a diet of tin cans. His ores aro
mined with never a strike.

Probably a wo.se menace than that for
which we went to w.ar now confronts the
people of this continent, fr m the Rio Grande
to the Arctic Cir le—indifi'erance to law, the
daily making of jhieves nnd murderers, the
breaking down of onr social structure, license
not liberty, indulgence uot economy, carelessness not security. Every young woman in
war time, with tremendous zeal, helped the
struggle. Her patriotism is needed now even
more than then. Millions were subscribed
by our business men to win the war. Long
hours of work were given with $1 a year as
the sole monetary reward for the most intense
service. But we are now menaced at bome,
and a like devotion to a like labor are needed
if life is to be at all worth living. The law of
the jungle is replacing the law of sanity and
reason. The hjealth, the morals, the very life
and liberty of all are at stake. Real patriotism
is sincere service for the good of our country,
which means service to fellow citizens more
than to ourselves. Every man and woman of
influence in this country, for sheer safety's
sake, must enlist their greatest efforts to uphold the law and solve the vexing problem.
It is the duty of every one to know the extent
of the law's violation now and the pernicious
effects and to give every ounce of energy to
halp save the country from itself.

Poems From Eastern Lands
The story that went the rounds in connec
tion with "Sir Loin," an educatioual film prepared by the depar-ment of agriculture, was
to the effect that King Arthur, on seeing his
favoaite cut of meat served at a meal to which
he came hungry from the hunt, rose at the
table round, drew his sword, and dubbed the
meat Sir Loin. Commentiiig on this in a letter to the New York Times, Eruest P. Horr
witz of Hunter college, wrote: "Romance
springs from illusion. Of course the etymology whereon the legend is fonnded is utterly
absurd. Th first syllable of the disputed
word is French, sur; Latin, super. In the
fourteenth century the French termed the
upper part ofthe loin of beef surloige, whence
our sirloin."

For pitiless is ii and strong in guile;
Ah I never trust it, even though it smile.
Thou'lt have, I fear me, reason oft to plain.
O Love's NarcBsus! sleep the sleep of peace!
Fall at the skirt of Fate and beg surcease;

Guard theo against the end of woe, nor cease.

Come, in the cradle of repose thee reat
A few short nights, by sorrow undistrest;
Bid care and all it brings leave thee unprest;
In place of milk, blood shall be thy bequest.

Thus will not long remain the rolling Sky:

As time goes on, progressive farmers are placing a higher valuation on
the variety of sheep they raise and
the care they are -given. It is generally realized that a sheep raiser secures two crops per year—the lambs
and the wool. All Indications point
to a well sustained price for lamb
and mutton due to the fact that consumption has at last overtaken production and prices being paid for
wool, mutton and lambs are, even
now, most inviting.
Compared with other live stock,
sheep raising provides a profitable
source of cash, income. Early lambs
can be made ready for market by
June and when the wool is harvested
and sold in June and July, this revenue is received at a season when
most needed by the average farmer.
There are many instances where farm
flocks of sheep have kept farmers
ont of debt.  In one instance, 60 ewes
Eroduced 65 lambs which when mar-
eted averaged 66 pounds at 15c per
pound or a total of $648.37. The wool
clipped from the 60 ewes averaged a
trifle over seven pounds per head and
brought well over a % 100.00 or a total
of almost $800.00 from the flock of
only 50 ewes.
Such a harvest, however, is not
possible without a return by the
owner. He must lay the foundation
by securing a desirable ram and must
have good basic value in the breed of
sheep he is raising.        ^-
While there are more than 1,575,-
000 shearable sheep in Canada, only
approximately 29,000 are pure-bred.
Annually the number of pure-bred
sheep increase in proportion to the
total number of sheep, which is a
favorable indication for a continuance
of quality for years to come. The
sheep owner realizes that only on
quality may he build a permanently
profitable business in sheep raising.
A close study of breeds most suitable to existing conditions and most
advanced methods of feeding and
care, always carries with it a large
dividend in results obtained. Your
sheep deserve good attention.

Indifference, ignorance and carelessness,
are the malevolent forces which lcmilt
in forest fires and only a thorough
education of the publio to the great
need of forest preservation can eradicate
these evils. Until tho goncral publio
understands the full significant of the
loss occasioned through forest fires unnecessary destruction of thousands of
acres of fine timber will continue. The
menace to the financial health of Canada
through forest fires has not been fully
appreciated by the vast majority of the
people. And Canadians especially
should be vitally concerned in the welfare of their forests.
The various phases of the lumber
industry in Canada represent an invested
capital of approximately five hundreil
million dollars. The associated industries give employment to thousands of
men the year through. Further, out
of every five dollars the lumber industries pay back to the country more than
four dollars for the wood, the labor and
the taxee involved in the enterprises.
In the province of Ontario alone,
about 20,000 mon are employed in the
bush while 10,000 aro employed in pulp
and paper mills. Tho capital invested
in these industries in Ontario is estimated at about $175,000,000. The organisations employed by the Ontario
provincial government for forest fire
protection cost $3,000 a day. Yet with
all this forest fires consume twelve times
the amount of lumber which is the life
of these huge Canadian industries. In
the province of Quebec the value of the

The Canadian Pacific Railway has been
doing all in its power to prevent fires by
maintaining fire fighting apparatus of the
most up-to-date pattern. In order to eliminate tho possibility of fires being started
by passing trains, locomotives on the
Canadian Paciflo Railway lines are examined at tho end of each trip and great
care is taken to see that ash pans and
front ends are in perfect condition.
Each spring the right of way is cleared
with care of all scrap and inflammable
Notices dealing with fire prevention
and protection, issued by the C.P.R., the
dominion and provincial governments
and by various fire prevention organizations are posted in all stations and other
buildings where they will be effective.
The mechanical equipment maintained
by tho Company for fire fighting consists
of a number of tank car units and hose,
kept ready for immediate operation at
convenient points. Each unit consists
of two tank cars each of 7,000 gallon
capacity, equipped with powerful pumps
and about one mile of hose.
The fire-fighting forces maintained by
the Canadian Pacific Railway co-operate
to the fullest extent with the provincial
forces and the other fire-prevention
organizations, and do everything possible
to assist in the fighting of fires which are
at all adjacent to their territories.
Legends of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec
Folk tales and legends still cling
to the shores of the St. Lawrence,
that flrst highway into the unknown
continent of North America. Legends
in which are mingled bits of Indian
superstition, French customs and
religious beliefs. In the time of the
early explorers, those brave men who
dreamed dreams which led them on
and over the bright waters, past dark
Islands, purple hills and shining
cliffs,' until they settled in Canada,
these legends were reverenced. Now,
•"iowever, while large Canadian Pacific
steamships crowded with tourists
ply up and down the St. Lawrence,
the legends are no longer regarded
except as quaint fairy tales with
somewhat of a religious flavour not to
M disregarded or ridiculed, but to be
enjoyed as reminiscent of the olden
days when saints and demons assumed
mortal forms.
Katherine Hale, in an artistic little
book issued by the Canadian Pacific
Railway recently, ably depicts many
of these stories. One of the most
familiar of these French Canadian
legends is that of Loup-Garou,
evidently derived from the German
P|6RR6:rtF.ME| MO0V61-, WHO

werewolf or the Irish banshee. Loup-
Garou typifies the French Canadian's
reverence for things spiritual ud his
belief In supernatural intervention.
Joachim' Crete, a miller of Beausejoui
was not really a bad man, but he did
jeer at church collections and failed
to try to convert his hired man merely
because he was such a good partner at
checkers. On Christmas night they
played, instead of going to church.
They even, in a mood of defiance, set
the mill going, as if it were an ordinary
night. Suddenly crack I and the mill
Btopped working. Then the lantern
went out, and the two men were left
in trembling darkness! After that the
hired man tumbled down stairs, Bnd
the miller began to drink fast and
furiously! Presently he heard a deep
moaning, Bnd turned to see a huge
dog about to attack him. Then the
miller knew it was Loup-Garou, and
he fell on his knees praying for forgiveness. But he lunged at the dog
with a reaping hook, and wounded
him. That was the saving of the hired
man, for according to the legend, if
you have been turned Into the form
of a wolf or dog because of evil deeds,
only b bloody wound can restore you.
