to be authorized by the Quebec legislature this season, it is also intended to raise the bounty to settler* on the acreage cleared. At
present the government gives a
bonus of $6 an acre. It will be
raised to $8 an acre. The province
spent $80,000 in this way in the last
fiscal year.
While it is agricultural

A Letter to Marse Gtiv'na
The letter lhat Mose Johnson, a
colored resident of Kentucky, wbo
was sentenced to be banged., wrote
tj the governor is effective principally for wbat it omits to say. Mose,
says a writer in Hidden Treasure,
wasn't greatly troubled when he wae
sentenced to be banged, but as tbe
day set for bis execution drew near
he began to worry. He even went
so far aB to speak of bis apprehension to his jailer, wbo suggested that
he write to tbe governor.
Mose waa no great letter writer,
aud so the jailer offered to write al
his dictation. After about five miu-s
utes of what Mose called thinking
be dictated:
"Dear Marse Quv'na: fhey ie fix

Vancouver, March 13.—
"We expect a greater number
to come in from the United
StBtes this year than in any
year past. There is a real revival of interest in Canada
throughout the central states.
I have just had a conference
with our United Slates representatives at St. Panl and
we expect quite a movement
norrhward this year."
This is the statement made
by Dr. W. J. Black,   director
ot colonization  and  develop
ment   for  the   C.N.R., who
joined   W.   D.   Robb,   vice
president of the national lines,
in Vancouver this morning.
Dr. Black is on  his  way to
Victoria to confer with mem
bers of the provincial govern
ment on colonization cooperation between the railway company and the British Colume
bia government.
"It is fitting them in that it
is the real immigration problem," declared Dr. Black,
"We have established an excellent organization in Europe for making contracts
with intending settlers. We
now wish to insure proper
conditions for newcomers
when they arrive in Canada.
"It is a pressing problem
with us to get more people
along our line." said Dr.
Black. "But we want to be
sure they make good and become permanently established
Our officers in Europe are selective officers almost entirely
There are many people desirous of coming here but at
present we want those who
have some money, and they
are not so numerous.''
Before assuming his present office Dr. Black was principal of an agricultural college in Manitoba, commissioner of agriculture for the
Dominion government, chairman of thesoleiers' settlement
board, and depnty minister
of immigration and colonization, and is regarded as the
outstanding authority on the
agricultural   development of
Wheat Down 14c;
Panic at Winnipeg
Wiunipeg, March 13,—Wheat
prices on the Winnipeg exchange
broke 14c on today's session of trading, establishing a record.for a one-
d»y decline. The market was in a
panic thjougbout the day, aDd tbe
bear traders had absolnte control of
tbe situation. The May fnture
cloaed at $1.74. while botb deferred
futures were lower in proportion.
Rye also underwent a drastic loss,
closing 16c under yesterday's fig*
ure. All tbe coarse grain 'markets
and flax experienced sweeping recessions.
The Dominion Horticultural at,*
soci«tion is in Ottawa making repre
sentatioDS to tbe government to
place a duty on fruit and vegetables
on the ground that importations
from tbe United States take tbe
cream of tbe market. While no
definite answer has been given, the
outlook, says a dispatch from Ottawa, from what can be learned in ins-
wide circles, is not very favorable.

An unusual consignment passed
through Montreal recently ij the
care of the Dominion Express Company when six Rocky Mountain sheep
were shipped to Austria to form part
of a zoological exhibit there. The
animals, whicb are valued at $600,
came from the National Park at
Banff, Alberta.
Alberta farmers have recently
been shipping a new commodity to
the market. During the past few
years there has been a considerable
increase in the number of bee-keepers and last year 160 keepers had a
total production of nearly 60,000
pounds of honey, valued at approximately $15,000. The exact number
of bees is not known.
Contract for aeroplane spruce has
been made between Vickers Limited,

Frank L. Buckley, of Vancouver, B.C
The spruce will be logged on the
Queen Charlotte Islands and milled
at the Buckley Mill at Port Clement,

mill, in Vancouver. The contract
calls for the delivery of two million
feet during 1925.
The amount of butter exported to
Japan through Vancouver during
1924 was nearly twice that of 1923,
according to figures supplied by
the Japanese consulate at that point.
The report shows that in 1924 the
quantity was 476,454 pounds, as
compared with only 299,695 pounds
in 1928. Total cheese shipments to
the same destination laBt year
amounted to 2,685 pounds, as
against only 40 ii.  1923.

with an even larger number handled, there were only eight complaints.

Apples, we are informed, arc t? be intensively advertised during the coining summer.
We sometimes think that the publicity bnsi-
ness is being overdone. Apples have been
grown ever since Adam was a kid, and if the
people do not know by this time what they
are for it is time to send out an investigating
committee to ascertain whether they are alive
or not. Had not Satan sent such a smooth,
oily-tongued advertising agent into the Garden
of Eden, it is not at aii likely that the people
who are today trying to make a livelihood by
growing apples would be taxed for apvertis-
ing a product that is older than civilization.
When is an egg fresh? After three days'
deliberation, which shows -how serious the
question is, a French court has decided that
an egg is fresh when it is not more than two
weoks old in summer or more than three
weeks old in winter. Hereafter eggs in France
will bear in red ink the date when they were

Europeans and Americans who want to
travel or study in the tropics must get over
the bashfulness of going without clothes, according to Prof. P. F. Fyson of Berhampore,
Bengal. The tropics will never be colonized
by Americans or Europeans until they decide
to live with the native dress. Clothing, he
maintains, interferes with the natural regulating action of tbe skin and makes it impossible
for the northerners to stand the climate.
Walt Whitman said: "The habit of thrift
proves your power to rule your own self. You
are able to take care of yourself and then out
of the excess of your strength you produce a
surplus. Thus you are not only able to take
care of yourself, but you are able to take care
of some one else—of wife, child, father and
mother, to lend a hand to sick people, old
people, unfortunate people. This is to live.
The man who can not earn a living for himself is sometimes less than a man. The man
who can barely get a living and no more is
little better than a barbarian oi a sacage."
The meaning of the word snpplice is "punishment, torture; pain and torment." As for
back as 1656 the word was used by Blount to
express the same meaning. There is also a
passage in one of Mrs. Oliphant's works which
reads: "It is easier to play the victim under
the supplice of a pretty girl, than by two mature matrons."
In Manila, capital of the Philippines, the
use of the celepone is growing so rapidly that
the company which operates the telephone
system finds the automatic service with a capacity of 15,000 subscribers recently installed
alread outgrown. Therefore, plans are being
made for enlargements of the automatic service that will take four or five years to accomplish and which, when completed, will be ade
quate not only for Manila itself but also for
its suburbs.
Seventy years, looks about fifty and feels
even younger, is an apt description of Elmer
Gray, assistant county attorney of Hennepin
county, Minnesota. It is all because for more
than thirty-five years he has gone without
eating noon lunch. By not eating the 13,000
meals he conservatively estimates that he has
saved $3250, but wishes some one to tell him
where it is.
Disgust with routine work is a fertile
mother of inventions. A part of the job of C.
B. McFarland, forest ranger in the Cascade
national forest in Oregon, was to keep track
of the number of automobiles that traversed
the government roads. It was tiresome work,
and mechanical. So Mr. McFarland invented
a machine to do it. The traffic counter, as he
calls his device, is a_small platform resting on
springs, bnried flush with the track in a narrow place in. the road. It is eonnected by
levers to a counting machine on a post. Each
car depresses the platform about oue half
inch, enough to work the connting machine
but not enough to jolt the car.

E. H Simmons, the new president of the

American business man, Mr. Simmons.nepbew
of the are E. H. Harriman, said: "Our high
brows accuse the American business man of

Children born in February have all thc odds

that more men and women enrolled in the

olncient History
[Taken From Twenty-Yeae Old Sun Files.]
A certain doctor in this city has gained an
en via: le reputation for being present at' the
birth of a majority of the future generation in
this neighborhood. This fact caused a school
boy, also a resident cf this city, to probe the
matter; but after a number of fruitless enquiries be was forced to adduce his own reasons for tbis state of affairs. He was quite
certain that the doctor got his babies from
Timothy Eaton at a ■ ig discount by taking
them in carload lots.
A Grand Forks lady narrowly missed being
the heroine in a runaway accident on  Wed
nesday, whioh has stirred up in our enquiring
mind the question: Does a horse show good
sense in trying to rnn away with a pretty girl?
D. D. Munro, who has been manager of the
grocery department in Jeff Davis & Co.'s store
in this city for a number of years, has secured
a position as traveling salesman with Kelly,
Douglas & Co.

Keynote of Northland is Mystery
A typical coastal Indian Village scene.  Left and Right, Heraulat Indian totem poles now owned by W. C. Bannister of Vancouver.
Below, Th* Princess Charlotte, one of the Canadian Pacilic fleet which ply* the Alaskan route.
Mystery it is Baid, i8 the keynote of the north. Mystery
and silence. And because of its mystery there will
always be an attraction, something to draw men on and
hold them. For it is no mere legend that the north ever
calls back those who have once lived in the snow and the
mountains, or through an Alaskan summer. What is true
of Alaska is also, to a very great extent true of the east
and western shores of Vancouver Island and of the
northern mainland shoreline. Scarcely has one left
Vancouver or Victoria than there dawns the feeling that
here is a new life opening out. As everywhere there is
charm, bo also is there mystery. One stops off at little
coastal villages to explore, or perhaps to fish or hunt, or
study native life or industry, and the first thing that one
runs into is the mysterious totem pole, that Indian
"family tree", which has great significance in the aboriginal history and life of the Indians of the Coast, but
which conceals its strange tales from the uninitiated
white man.
Two striking examples of Indian art, totem poles
which are said to be among the best on the Pacific Coast
because of their excellent design, legendry and historical
importance, have been brought from the west coast of
Vancouver Island to Vancouver, B.C.. where Mr. C.
Bannister, who secured them from the Indians, has
erected them in front of his home. They were made by
the Hescjuiat Indians and illustrate native legends and
tribal history.
The Hesquiat Indians lay claim to being the first
natives to Bee the white man in British Columbia. The
tribe's legend of the seeing of these men dates back to
1788. The story told by these Indians is:
"Two Indians were travelling along the west coast
in canoes and in a light mist. Suddenly out of the mist
there loomed a giant canoe with white wings and skulls
hanging from them. All over the decks of the boat
scrambled strange-looking creatures such as they had
never seen before. They had white faces and stone feet.
"One of the strange palefaces took a long stick and
pointed it in tbe. air and it spurted fire. Immediately a
seagull fell dead.
"The two Indians in the canoe never recovered from
the shock of this quick succession of strange and terrifying scenes and died on the spot."
The totems which Mr. Bannister has secured exceed
twenty feet in height and have been set in concrete bases.
The Great Eagle on the top of one of the poles was looked
upon by Indians as a deity and is seen bringing the whale,
which is also an emblem of great strength, to the powerful chief, Cee-Ta-Ka-Nim who was famous as a whali
When a potlatch, or great giving away feast was held,
all of the people of the tribe would gather in the lodge
of the chief and a human skull thrown in amongst them.
The man who was able to get out of the lodge with the
skull was the hero of the potlatch and received the
greatest measure cf gifts and attention. Cee-Ta-Ka-Nim
evidently accomplished thiB feat as he is seen holding the
skull in his hands. The large killer whale beneath is part
of hia family crest or emblem.
On the other pole the top figure is the official dancing
mask of tbe Hesquiat chief. Beneath is depicted the
legend of the Kingfisher and the Great Bear.
The kingfisher was looked upon as a great prevaricator
and boaster. One day the bear was walking by a creek
where the kingfisher was fishing. The Great Bear said
'Tam-Moo-Kee, you are always boasting to everybody of
what you can do, yet you never seem to do anything. Now
you never hear me boast, but I will show you what I
can do.' He stood up on his hind legs and started to draw
a serpent out of his stomach much to the astonishment
and amazement of the kingfisher.
In nearly all Indian legends the characters took on a
dual personality, and were able at any time to change
themselves into birds, animals or fishes.
St Lawrence Route Claims Pilotage Record
T«t not a single -serious accident
had occurred on. the St Lawrence
Biver between Quebec and Father
Point during the 1924 season of navigation, tbough the passim** up and
down of over 8,000 shlpa, representing a tonnage of fifty millions, had
been recorded, was an interesting
statement made at the annual meeting of the Quebec Licensed Pilots
Association held ln Quebec City recently.
A review of the activities of the
last Beason brought out the fact that
there had been 3,012 sailings between
Quebec and Father Point, each of
these ships carrying a licensed pilot
The number of pilotages recorded
was the highest In the history ot the
Bt Lawrence River. The fact that
the size ot the vessels entering and
leaving the St Lawrence has been
increasing continually in recent
years makes the foregoing achievement all the more remarkable, as
this has naturally Increased tbe
draught of the liners, some of which,
as ln the case of the Canadian Pacific
steamships, reached thirty and at
times thirty-three feet.
Advance bookings to date. Indicate
that the St. Lawrence route during
1925 will prove even more popular
than heretofore. A large number of
