tbat he bsd nol yet bad time to
study Mr. Meigben'e speech in detail.
He took up Mr. Meighea's charge
that the government bad no achieve
ments to its oredit. In reply to tbe
charge, Mr. King asserted in his
speech tbat tbe government bad,
1. Reduced expenditure by
$100,000,000 in tbe last four
2 Reduced taxation to 75

3. Reduced tbe public debt

Meighen government bad increased it by $173,000,000,
4. Added to the national
railway debt less than was
added by the Meighen government.

tbat Mr. Meighen bad not taken
the trouble to analyze tbe situation
carefully, but bad dealt in generali

"One of the things tbat Mr.
Meighen says," proceeded tbe premier, "is that tbe government lias
no achievements to its credit. When
we look office the expenditures

"When you lake tbe amount of
money that was raised from the
people in taxes when we took office
and compare it witb the amount

"In otber words, we are only taka

Id another week, it may safely be assumed,
the federal election campaign will be in full
swing all over Canada. At present it looks as
if the gavernnient would be returned by a
good majority. The country had two years of
Mr. Meighen as prime minister. He made a
sorry mess of national policies. It is notjlikely
that the people of Canada will want to repeat
the experiment by entrusting the affairs of the
country to his care. British Columbia owes
much to the King government, and if the convention at Penticton next Friday does no t
make the mistake of nominating a w akllng,
we shall certainly expect to see Yale in the
Liberal column en election night.
The coal crisis in England served to recall
the methods employed by the miners in bringing their grievances to public attention more
than a century ago—in 1815. At that time the
workers made their protest in person They
dragged loads of coal to London and demanded to see the prince regent. But the magistrate sent f)r them, told them they must not
bother London's august personages, and bade
them go back to their work. And they went
back home, carrying their loads behind them

Hi,'es, so far away as Rome, must we go for
the beginnings of the story of this hoary old
pile, whose influence has been casting its spell
upou the lives of the dwellers in the old prov-
in09 of Moray from that far-off time to the
p.-;sent. There is an old tradition that the
Culdees founded the church to begin with, just
as they did that of Birnie. In any case, the
sita was already hallowed by many sacred associations, when Bishop Andrew Meray, scion
of the powerful house of De Moravia, moved
the Cathedral of Spynie to the Church of Holy
Trinity in Elgin.

C. C. Peters of thn bureau of standards,

he thinks is absolutely free from mathematical
error and therefore the most accurate in the
world. It has a scale with rulings only five
one hundred-thousandths of an inch wide and
spaced with an accuracy of at least two mil-
lionths of an inch. Compl.tion of the ruler
upsets the old saying that nothing made by
man can be perfect, as scientists declare the
scale is free from error. The new scale will
be used in tho calibration of micrometer
The word "set" used in relation to a set of
teeth is a general term and may correctly be
applied either to ail the teeth or to only part
of them. For instance, it is correct to say, he
has a good set of upper teeth or a good set of
lower teeth. On the other hand, it is also correct to say, he has a good set of teeth, meaning both the upper and lower teeth taken
together. If no modifying word such as
',upper" or "lower" is used, "set of teeth" is
understood to include both.

Anong the columns, which had toppled over,

saw more bloodshed ahead. The rioting which
has been induldged in on both sides since the
treaiy was signed, almost leads one to the con
elusion that it would have an act of mercy if
President Koosevelt had allowed the belliger-
a ts to continue the fight to a finish.
One of the qualities which add greatly
to life is that of friendliness, and there
is no more friendly medium of communication than the human voice. That is
one reason why the long distance telephone is appropriate for business and

Here is the Sumroer Home of Mister Jack Frost Himself
THIS Is the lee Cave in Mount Sir
Donald, near Glacier, B.C. The
light of the sun streams In through
the opening at the far end causing
the frozen walls to glisten as though
built of a thousand times ten thousand diamonds. It is rumored that
this ls the official summer residence
of Jack Frost himself, to which the
Chilly Monarch retires for his annual nap Irom epring time to autumn.
And this is a scene from Mr.
Frost's private grounds, on the roof
of the world in the Canadian Pacific
Rockies. It is here, bo we understand, that Mr. Frost spends most of
his time "when not asleep in hla
Cave. For a pastime he enjoys most
of all riding around oil chunks of
floatlni*; ice and his favourite food
Is a good, deep crackly glacier which
he prefers coated with a generous
frosting of newly fallen snow. When
the winter comes and the nights are
long and dreary he lets out a wild
whoop of joy (so we are told), jumps
on a passing snow cloud and sails
away over the continent, pushing
down mercuries and hooping up
snow drifts wherever he goes.
But after all, nobody takes him
very -seriously these days, for lt
would be a tiresome old world to
live in if Friend Frost didn't come
along once ln a while and give us
something to contrast with the summer.

Under the heading, "The Inconsistencies of Men," C. B. Fletcher
contributes the following interesting
remarks on freight rates te the
August "Railway Review":
"Man's progress ia measured by
his adaptability-to his surroundings
and his opportunity to trade with his
fellow men by exchanging products.
Transportation is the essential instrumentality for trade, commerce er
business of any kind.
"The phenomenal prosperity of the
United States today is the direct result of the most efficient transportation facilities in the world — Mil-
"Railroad transportation is worth
ten times what it casts today te
every person in this nation. The
railroads haul your meat 600 miles
for 36 cents a hundred pounds, you
pay from 20 cents for cheap cuts to
60 cents for special cuts of meat or
from 60 to 180 times the cost of
"The railroads haul flour 400 miles
for 13 Vi cents a hundred, 7 pounds
for one cent. You pay 10 cents a
pound for brer* or 70 times the cost
ef transportation.
"Yon pay one dollar for a meal at
a first class hotel on which thc
freight charges were less than two
cents, including everything served,
and the coal to cook it, and then tip
the waiter ten cents or five times
what the railroad received for hauling tt 400 miles or more.     i»
"The same mnn who tips the
waiter ten cents will go out and
