Ottawa, May 27.—Estimates
for tbe Canadian National

special house committee on
national railways today. Sir
Henry Thornton, president
Canadian Nati ual railways,
discussed the annual report of
tbe road, iu whicb he thought
the most gratifying feature
was the saving in transportation cost, together with reduced cost of maintenance of
ways. The fact that there had
been a reduction in botb, is
said to mean that the reduc
tion in maintenance cost has
not been effected by lotting

Victoria, May 27.—Regulations

provincial secretary and minister of
mines. Tbese regulations cover
every pbese of the storiDg, handling

men holding certificates will be
permitted to handle powde: and
conduct blasting operations.
Under tbe new regulations it is
provided that every man handling
explosives must undergo an examin*

a certificate from tbat official indicating chat he is possessed of tbe
necessary qualifications. Provisional
certificates may be issued by the
superintendent of tbe mine for a
period not exceeding ninety days,or
uutil the next visit of the inspector
of the district, wbo will re examine
the man and assure himself of his
qualfficatione. Heretofore practi

to handle aud use explosives without restriotioo. Under tht-new system now being brought fnto effect
ittl responsibility for the proper use
and handling of explosives rests
upon the man to whom tbe certificate is issued. It is his duty to see

blasting caps and blasting powder
together into Ihe mine; restrictions
are placed upon tbe thawing of

Great Poet's Cottage

When William Shakespeare
was eighteen years old in
1582,heran away and married
Anne AathawayJ in wbose cottage at Stratford-on-Avon the
young couple set up housekeeping. Anne cooked for her
poet husband upon a crude
kitchen hearth, and on rainy
days the chimney smoked.
He would complain, and sbe

Can you Imagine a span ot a thousand million years
or so ? If you can, try to picture to yourself the
place where the Rocky Mountains now stand, wltb
their snow-crowned peaks towering into the sky, at
the bottommost depths ot on Inland sea.
Do you know how the Rockies were formed'? By
what Titanic .forces these great masses were crumbled
and -folded and lifted high ln the air ?
It is a most Interesting story that geology tells us
concerning tne formation of this gigantic range through
tbe ages—aeons before the human race dwelt upon the
earth, and only one of the many other fascinating
things that one learns about one's oWn land, ln "Picturesque America," a de-luxe volume, superbly illustrated with 500 photographs and charmingly written,
which has been published recently by "The Resorts
and Playgrounds of America," New York.

British Columbia's mineral production for
the year 1925 is valued officially at $61,492,-
242. In 1924 the total value wis $49,704,604,
This means that tnere was an increase of $12,-
787,638, which incidentally works out at 26.2
percei.t—a notable   record.    When  production just tipped the $40,000,000 mark in 1916,
the peak year of the war as far as mineral
supplies from this province were concerned,
the total was regarded- as one that it would
take a long time to pass.   That was a year of
highest   prices   ever paid   md the sum  received was no indication whatever of volume
production.   But as soon as the country returned  to a peaceful basis new development

Prof. Max Meyer of the University of Missouri has invented an organ with whicb it is
possible to play music written upon a scale of
24 notes instead of the usual. 12 The tip of
each key is detached on tbe instrument and
when depressed produces a tone halfway between that of tbe key of which it seems a part
and the next lower one.

Even birds have their romances and tragedies. Snow King, a mammoth white Canadian snow goose, was hunted for three years
before a Kansas mm finally shot him down.
It was a triumph for the hunter, but it caused
a love tragedy for what is believed to have
beeu Snow King's mate. After Snow ping's
death another Canadian snow goose was observed payiog frequent visits to the place
where the first bird had made it tight for life.
If it was love and fidelity that brought the
second bird to the scene the tragedy has now
been completed, for Snow King s mato has
paid with its life.
Too much dependence is placed on "they

Hazel Hannah Hitt of DeKalb, Mo., has a
quilt at her home which she uevei uses. It
just descended from one generation to the
next. It is now two hundred and ten years
old, having been brought to the United States
in 1715. Hannah is a favored and parsistent
nime in the family. Six Hannahs—Miss
Hazel being the sixth—have owned the quilt.
Miss Emma Millette has become a sucessfnl
business woman in Buffalo, N.Y , by realizing,
early in her girlhood, how important the
smallest details may be in the largest scheme
of things. A New Englanft factory worker,
Miss Millette was a finisher who spliced together broken threads in cloths and rewovr-
them into the fabric. Now she is head of a
cloth weaving company which mends holes in
clothing. In 1915 when in Trenton, N. J.,
she was out of work and unable to- find employment. Then it occurted te her that if cloth
frayed in thc making could be repaired so
that no trace of the break remains, then tbe
cloth of worn garments could be made whole.
She bad a few cards printed announcing that
she could weave over holes in torn, burned or
worn clothing so that the damage would be
invisible. Immediately she was overwhelmed
with work. But the process of repairing
fashioned cloth was not tbe same as that involved in repairing cloth in bolts, she discovered, and she gave up her Trenton business to
go to New York city, where sbe found a job
and in the evenings studied cloth and the various methods of making it. Next she trained
young girls in the processes she had worked
out. "The secret of good mending lies io the
splicing and the weaviug of the pattern," she
said. "It takes five years for one to learn the
process thoroughly, bnt once learned it is a
valuable asset."
Father C. M, Heredia, a Jesuit priest at St.

moods and parsonalitis and detect ailments.

Montreal for the first time on the

given Canadians by the Canadian
Club of Boston, Mr. Johnson said
there were some 900,000 Canadians
in the State of Massachusetts. Of
this number 80,000 are in Boston.
Sir Fisme Howard, British Ambassador io the United Stntes, stated
on his arrival in Toronto on a C.P.R.
train that the question of European
peace was the most urgent and immediate problem of the day. It was
necessary for Great Britain to assist
in maintaining peace and the League
of Nations offered a suitable vehicle,
Sir Esme claimed that if the League
disappeared England would be compelled to join some European., combination against any country which
threatened to dominate the continent.

Progress In farm Beld work In the
coming months depends largely on tho
condition-of the. work horses. Soft
from the winter's rest, farm work
. horses require conditioning Just as an
athlete requires training for his test.
Every farmer knows that two or
three weeks spent ln a gradual toughening and conditioning of a horse for
thc heavy work is more than mado up
I before the season of heavy field work
Is over. Not only does this conditioning Include breaking them ln to the
long hours of hard pull that they
must undergo, but applies as well to
breaking them In to a working ration.
It Is poor practice to allow a horse
to pasture on much hew lushy grass
lf lie Is to go on a strenuous work
schedule. 4. little grass Is good fpr
hint, helps to condition him, but he
must, have oats, bran or old corn, or
still better, a combination of the three
and good sound hay. Thess are the
best possible rations ln the spring and
early summer. The horse that ls fed
a major ration of grass soon' gets soft,
sweats profusely, lags and quickly
plays out Oats, bran, corn and hay
Will give blm stamina and leave him
In the best condition at the end of
the day.
By treating old Dobbin fairly, getting him ready for spring work With
dally exerciser keeping him thoroughly
groomed, especially while shedding,
and a work ration "Instead of~hls
winter feed will pay big dividends in
a short time.
If the horse takes a long time to
shed his coat, this can be facilitated
by thorough, frequent grooming .and
lf this does not do the work, a clipping
all over will get him through the shedding period quickly. After the horse
has started to work In the field, it is
advisable to bathe the shoulders apd
neck two or three times daily with
cold, soft, salty water or with white
oak bark tea which * toughens and
cleanses the chafed parts.
A prominent veterinarian states
that excessive sweating Is remedied
by clipping the horse. . Excessive
sweating weakens the animal and It is
doubtless quite advisable to clip tip
to relieve this condition. If 1s"-Uso
true that this practice enables the
horse to be thoroughly groomed In
much less time than when It retains
its |ong winter, coat of shaggy hair.

Nova Scotia Interior as Moose Pasture
Recent improvement in Oriental
trade is being indicated by the heavy
cargoes carried by the last few liners sailing for Japan and China
from the Port of Vancouver. Vancouver merchants view the partial
recovery in the volume of business
being done with China as a sure
sign that th-- country is coming baclr
to normal. This improvement is
noted especially in the recent heavy
bookings of the Canadian Pacific
Whole families of Indians on bhe
Island of Manitowaning, in Georgian Bay, work all winter making
twelve-inch bark canoes which are
sold as ornaments. A shipment of
four thousand eight hundred of
these passed through Dominion Express yards at Montreal recently
for a New York destination. The
old-time Indian canoe is represented
in every detail and every one of the
tiny vessels is beautifully decorated.
Nova Scotia is a country of lakes
and streams, offering many ideal
!*anoe trips, and the interior is a
■(reat moose pasture. Ideal, too,
is the moose bunting, because both
thc canoe and automobile are used
by hunters and guides, thus saving
many miles of weary hiking
through the wilderness. On the
Liverpool chain of lakes reached
from South Milford via Annapolis
Royal or Digby, and on Lake Ked-
gemakooge, Lake Rosstgnol, Lake
Munro, Loon Lake and the Liverpool River expert Indian and white
guides use the canoes for long distances and even call the moose to
the shore with their birch bark
horns. When some distant point is
to be reached from "Del" Thomas'
South Milford camp, canoes, guides,
hunters and duffle are loaded upon
» big motor truck for tbe journey.
South Milford Is IS miles from
Annapolis Royal and is a favorite
Outfitting point. So Is the Kedge-
makooge Rod and Gun Club, on
famous Lake Kedgemakooge, in the
heart of the wilderness 36 miles
from Annapolis Royal. Both of
these camps have ample accommodations and plenty of canoes and
reliable guides.
The Nova Scotian moose season
lasts from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15. Deer
are as plentiful as moose, and the
open season for this game lasts from
Oct. It to Not. «L

Expect Moose Gtu-ES
Although large numbers ol moose
are shot each year, many with magnificent "spreads," the annual increase is said to equal the Mil.
Such guides as Louis Harlow, half-
breed Micmac and Sam Globe, full-
blooded Indian, are expert moose
callers end stalkers and rarely disappoint the hunter. The cleverness
with .vhich they simulate the tails
of the cow moose with a simple roll
of birch bark fashioned Into a horn,
is sure to fool tbe wisest old bull
in the wilderness. When the calling
season is past, the moose no longer
comeff to the hunter and the hunter
must go to him. Neither canoe,
nor automobile figures much in this
phase of moose hunting except that
one, or both, may help the hunter
near the place where the quarry is
. supposed to be and carry hun home
when the hunt ia over.

The Official Ride of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, commenced
this year on the morning of August 8th and ended at Wapta Camp on the
night of the tenth. Over a hundred members participated. They rode across
country between Marble Canyon, on the Banff-Windermere Highway, to the
Bungalow Camp at Lake Wapta.
The Riders, among them a number of prominent society people, scientists
and artists, all travelling on horse-back, blazed a new passage across the
Wolverine Plateau. Six countries were represented: Canada, the United.
States, Australia, France, the West Indies and England. The artists; of
whom there were six, made sketches of ths "irgin scenery along the route
of the newly discovered trail.
Seven Indians were in the party, six being Kootenays under Chief Louis
Arbel, while the seventh was Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance who gave a
lecture on the Indian Races of Canada to the Canadian Club of Montreal
during the winter, and is rapidly becoming famous as an authority upon
Indian affairs.
The artists included Leonard Richmond, R.B.A., and A. L. Leighton of
England; Carl Rungius, Belmore Browne and Richard M. Kimbel, of New
York, and R. Palenske of Chicago. Paris was represented by the Due de
Nemours, who recently purchased a ranch near Calgary.
This was the second annual Ride and Pow-pow of the organization. On
the morning of August the eighth, motor cars conveyed the Riders from
Lake Louise and Banff to the point of departure on the Banff-Windermere
Highway. There guides and horses were in readiness ahd the party immediately mounted and the Ride commenced. The trail led up Tumbling
Creek, past Tumbling Glacier and on the Wolverine Plateau where lunch was
'served*. The ride then proceeded along the Plateau with the Wolverine
Palisades, Mount Helmet and the Washmawapta Icefield and Waterfalls on
the left, giving the riders a view of the Ten Peaks on the right.
That night camp was pitched on the Goodsir Plateau and before retiring
the campers gathered around the file for the usual sing-song, in the shadow
of the cliff which rises sheer six thousand, five hundred feet above its valley.
On the second day the ride led down to Goodsir Creek and up McArthur
Creek, past Lake McArthur. That night was spent of the shores of Lake
O'Hara, the camp there being placed at the disposal of the Trail Riders by
the Alpine Club of Canada. The day ended again with a sing-song.
On the third day, August 10th, the final ride was made from Lake O'Hara
to Wapta Lake, where the expedition was concluded with a Pow-wow, singsong and pale-face dance at Tipi Camp. It is expected that another ride of a
similar nature will take place next year as the undertaking impressed those
who took part as one of the most enjoyable outtingr they nave rxperiencpi;

Chief Inspector Sounds Keynote to
Purifying Nation's Milk Supply
Interior tf a Milk Patltm-iiino Plan.
At the 14th annual convention of
the International Association of
Dairy and Milk Inspectors held at
Indianapolis, recently, leading authorities of the United States and"
Canada submitted Interesting and informative papers relative to the purification of the nation's milk supply.
In the closing session of the series
ef meetings, Dr. Hoy F. Leslie, Chief
Heat and Dairy Inspector of Cleveland, Ohio, emphasized the great
Importance of co-operative measures
by the producer in the production of
•lean milk,
"With co-operation on the part of
the milk producers," said Dr. Leslie,
"much ■ can be done along this line
that would otherwise bo Impossible."
He then told of how the public was
kept informed of steps taken to control the milk supply with a view to
safeguarding thc health of all who
use milk and dairy products.
"In Cleveland," said Dr. Leslie,
''more than 70% of the milk is sold
at one or another of a system of
ehaln stores where the customer Is
given an allowance of 2 cents on tho
purchase of each quart of milk."
The 2 cents allowed covers the cost
ef delivery In the home and represents a saving of about 12% to thc
Milk ln Cleveland must be soltl
within it hours of pasteurising.
Mr. J. T. Quigley, dairy adviser,
Kansas City Consumers' League,
Kansas City, Mo., followed with an
account of the work of purifying the
milk supply of that city.
He stated that milk produced la
dairies where they follow all sanitary regulations such as clean stables, clipped udders and flanks of
milk cows, thorough grooming and
brushing of the animal before milking, and periodical tests for bacteria,
brought to producers in the league 2
_J cents to 3 cents more per quart of
milk than is received by those who
were not members of the Kansas
City Consumers' League.
Throughout the series of meetings,
stress was laid upon the rapid strides
being made towards a thorough and
comprehensive inspection program of
tho milk supply of cities throughout
tlio United States and Canada.
It is certain that the results of this
work are reflected to a great extent
In the inrreased consumption of milk
by tho people of tlie United States,
and this increased consumption is
suro to be reflected in monetary ad-
vantages for both lho producer and
the distributer. High quality will increase milk consumption and high
consumption of milk will keep the
milk market stoady.
