of the Dominion was $887,898,449 or
an increase of twenty-nine millions
over the sum of $308,994,207 for the
corresponding period of the previous

A deposit if peculiar clay, wbich the
is said to produce tbe vitality of
young manhood in tbe oldest and
most feeble, has just been discovered
near Vanderhoof by Albert Hayman,
pioneer resident of that district.
To prove tbe virtue of his diocov»

tbs miraculous clay to his friend,
Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of agri..
culture, who is going to give it a
thorough test.
A small amount of the material
dissolved in a bath makes an old
man feel like a youngster, according
to Mr. Hayman.
He says, ln a letter to Mr. Bars,
row, that after a clay balh he imagines he is 24 instead of 64 years
old.
M'. Hayman has been conducting
a kind of Pooce de Leon search
around Vanderhoof for years in the
hope of discovering something tbat
would take tbe stiffness out of stiff
joints and generally add to tbe
physical comfort of life.
Mr. Barrow promised to give the
discovery a thorough trial.

West Kootenay Power
Company Has Good Year
Tbe West Kootenay Power and
Light company, whose bonds are
widely dietributed in British Colum
bia as well as in be east, enjoyed
a profitable year in 1925, ii is revealed n tbe aunual statement of
the company.
Gross revenue amounted toll,-
041,125, of whicb $125,219 repre.
sented tbe year's profit.
Tbe revenue producing load for
tbe 12 months ending Decembet 31,
1924, was $29,389.2, wbile forthe
year ending December 31, 1925, it
was 39,230.1, showing an increase of
3940.0.
On the Penticton, Kelowna and
Southern Okanagan extension tbe
improved conditions are shown during tbe last few months of 1924
continued during 1925and revenue
from that territory Bhowed an increase of 9J per cent.
The piant is supplying power to
the Allenby Copper corporation and
to the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting company's smeltering and

I of 95 mibs an hour is possible with! bis uncle,    ho died a gen. ration ago
and who in his day was a noted
medicine man,' Until now Elliott
bas made no nttempt to follow out
bis uncle's instructions, but feeling
tbat his life is nearly ended—be ia
well over 70 years old—be has, dew
cided to find the treasure for hie
tribe.
If be locates it be will bavs sue
ceeded wbere dozens of expeditions
of white men have failed in tbe last
50 years, for tbe lost silver mine ie
a. legend among prospectors all over
Vancouver island.
According to Elliott bis tribe for
generations back knew wbere tbe
Store of native stiver was located.
From fatbei to son tbe secret wae
handed down. Never did tbe Cowichan tribe reveal tbeir secret to
whfte men, however, and all tbe
wh it settlers'attempts to find tbe
mine failed. Old timers assert tbat
Elliott is gifted witb second sigbt,
as the Indians all agree. They recall
the time wben be predicted the
death nf a well known resident of
Duncan, ti e chief settlement in the
district "of tbe Cowichan Indians
Within a day, they declare, this
man wan killed in an accident, juat
as Elliott had forecast. Other miraculous predictions are attributed
to the old medicine man, who claims
that he received his giit frnm bis
parents.
Elliotr says he lirst became aware
of his power of second sight wheo
be lay between life and death in a
hospital a# a young man. In tbat
time, be asserts, his spirit left his
body and roamed about wilh those
oi his departed ancestors, who re*
vealed to bim bis occult secrete.
His whole life, he says, wss outlined in advance for him by bis
UDcle, tbe most famous of hI tbe
Cowicbau medicine men This remarkable old Indian even foretold
tbe number ai.d sex of Elliott's
children, and his last prediction was
that some hig nephew, ae an old
man, would go alone into the woods
along tbe Cowichan river anrl locate
the lost silver mine.
Tbe maintenance of soil fertility
fs assured for the irrigated districts
of southern Alberta in eo far as
nitrogen and humus are concerned,
provided that alfalfa has a orominent
place in tbe rotition, statea Dr.
Frank T. Shutt, Dominion ohemist,
in a new bulletin of the department
of agriculture. The bulletin, which
deals witb tbe influencof continuous
gr in growing on soil fertility, gives
the details of a series (-(experiments
with ten-year crop rotations con«
ducted on irrigated land at Leth.
bridge. Ten plots wore used and
eacb rotation comprised six successive crops o( alfalfa, one hoed crop
and three grain crops. Large yields
of alfalfa hay and cereals were har
vested during the eleven years of
lho experiment, vet there was a
very marked increase ins* tha
nitrogen content nf the soil of every
plot. Io one plot even though 2628
pounds of nitrogen were removed
by tbe crops, the residual gain at
tbe close of the period to a depth
of twelve inches was 2235 pounds.
ln spite of amounts removed by the
crops, the gain in nitrogen per acre
every year ranged roughly from 70
to 200 pounds on nine of the ten
plots.
In the series these results accord
io a large measure with thoee ob
lained in a series of experiments
conducted 'at the Central experimental farm, Ottawa, from 1902 to
1912.
Life would be mighty  monotonous if it were all sun

Notes • Notions • Notables
It may be fact or only fancy that the seas ns
are later than they used to be.    There is a
sus icion rife among us  that whoever  labels
the  months  makes a mistake now and then
Spring is sometimes a laggard.    Out of doors
the trees are bare and the fields are a dingy
and monotonous hue.    Yet, n the  observant
eye, neither ihe trees not- ibe fields are as they
were ten days ago. The meadow-3 are washed
in a tinge of green, faint in places, more easily
distinguished in others.  There is a vigor observable in trunk, braoch and twig.   The sap,
that life blood of the tree,  is  rising and  the
magic of the budding process i.s in  tbe  midst
of its ministry. The clouds which often  h.iiig
low a e given to sudden liftings, then to sepa-
ations and  dissolutions,  disclosing   thereby
glimpses of skies of robin-egg blue.    The ad
vance guard ef the migrants has arrived, the
robin, as usual, among the lirst to appear.  On
the whole, there is no cheerier bird than this
self-confident     r ddish     breasted,    socially
minded, friend of man.    lie comes early and
stays late, aud during the  mating  senson  his
love notes are pure and passionate.    Then he
ha* a ha it of singing lustily when the rain is
falling.    He is an  optimist, and deservedly
popular.   The sweet warbles of the   bluebird
falls gratefnlly on  the eats  of the  wayfarer
who shapes  his  leisurely  course along  the
highway or across the meadow  and  through
woodland.    In the creek bottom where there
are level stretches with patches of underbrush
aud plentiful thickets, tha towhee or chewink
is likely to be in evidence,a big and handsome
fellow, strickiugly attired in hewn anrl black,
a bird, by the way, that is all too little known.
The blackbirds are here, noisily   proclaiming
that fact, andin the swampy sections the redwings are joyously singing  their "kronkeree"
song  The plaintive notes of the field sparrow
make  restful  mnsic to  the ear; the carol of
the meadow-lark rises clear  and  sweet,   and
not a day passes but other familiar bird song
aie heard again after an   interlude  of many
months.    April bears the reputation of mercurial properties, and rightfully so. The poets
with whom the month is a general favorite are
prone to instance this tendency of variable
ness. Emerson sings of "April cold with drop
ping rain"; Whittitr of"April showers"; while
Longfellow alludes to ".Sweet April," and one
Alexander Smith, a Scottish bard,  writes  of
"April's tears." Shakespeare is most poetical
ofallwhenhe interprets a lovely woman in
the  phrase, "The   April's  in  her eyes, it  is
love's spring." Thus the  month of April is a
harbinger, a   herald,  a   proph-cy—days   of
shine and shadow in which there is moro of
promise than fulfillment.
The bagpipe, which was threatened for a
while last spring when an American jazz
oper tta introduced tin; saxophone to Scot

was recently introduced in a jazz band in

strong ever since. Only large men are engaged as jazz bagpipe players, because of the
necessity of having individuals with a \ en or
mous lung expansion who are capable of
keeping pace with the saxophone and double

FIGHTING   THE   GANGER   PLAGUE
While the world with breathless interest
awaits the outcome of the experiments now
being madt! by eminent doctors seeking a serum to counteract the cancer pltgue, and confirmation of successful treatment by lead
methods is sought, commonsense people will
seek so'ii'iionsense methods of preventing
cancer before it takes lodgment.
Cancer is a modern disease and its cause
must be I loked for in modern habits of life.
The tomato wps suspected at one time and
pork at another. Recent schools have been
seeking the cause in tbe increased uses of salt
and sugar in modern dietary,while the anti vac-
cinationiis believe they have found the root of
the mischief in the vaccination orgies that were
rampant forty and fifty years ago. Whatever
canse, the eflect is here, for after forty years
of age, ( ne man in every eleven, and one womau in every eight, dies of cancer.
This much is common ground, that cancel-
commences in such parts of the body as are
exposed to irritation. In the case of the
smoker, in the bp and tongue; in tne case of
the dyspeptic,the stomach and digestive tract;
in all portions of the body subject to abuse or
previous injury. We, are warned to look carefully and remove foreign lumps ortiny absces
sesof long standing on the body.
Exercise, fresh air, simple and ample food,
regular habits, attention lo personal cleanliness and especially to the organs of elimination, the drinking of sufficient quantities of
good water, are means to defeat the enemy
before he secures a grip.
The hunt for a cancer serum may end yet in
a warniug to keep all serums and disease cultures away from the healthy human body. Retaining good health by commonsanse methods
while it is retainable, is tbe best way to combat cancer in the present stage of medical
knowledge.—Western Tribune.

foi'mutlve papers relative lo tho purification of the nation's milk supply.
In tlio closing session of tho scries
of meotln rs, Dr. I'.oy P. Leslie, chief
M at and Dairy Inspector of Clovo-
I: "1, Ohio, emphasized the great
I: ,porl;. oee of co-operative measures

"Willi eo-operatlon on the part of
thb milk producers," said Dr. Leslie.
"much con bo done along this line
t:...t would otherwise be impossible.*'
lie- then told of how the public was
kept informed of steps taken to conic. 1 the milk supply with a view to
safeguarding th6 health of all who
use nil!; and dairy products.
"In Clcvel id," said Dr. Leslie,

Mr. J. V. Quigley, dairy advisor,
Kansas City Consumers' League,
Kansas City, Mo., followed with an
account of tho work of purifying the'
milk supply of that city.
lie stated that milk produced In
dairies where they follow all sanl-
lury regulations such as clean stables, clipped udders and flanks of
milk cows, thorough grooming and
brushing of the animal beforo milking, and periodical tests for bacteria,
brought to producers in the league 2
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 cltios throughout

It is certain thut the results of this
work are reflected to a groat extent
In tho increased consumption of milk
by the people of the United .Slates,
and this increased consumption Is
sure to be reflected In monetary advantages for both tho producer and

ON THE BEACH AT MANITOU
LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling
prairies, the Red man knew
and appreciated the curative pro
perties of Little Lake Manitou,
which is located near Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
the Canadian National Railways.
And the first white settlers who
came, in advance of the railways,
to settle on their homesteads in
and around Watrous, soon learned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the first settlers reached the
country.
Today thousands of residents of
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an ideal watering place, and
excursions are run from time to
time over the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot.
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
the swimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
are health-giving in their action.
With a good sandy beach for the
kiddies to play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for their entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the
dwellers in the central region of
Saskatchewan.
