—Scopolamin, an alicaloid,
was used in experiments on
three inmates of San Queutin
prison here today, as a result
of which John L. Farrar,con
victed of the murder of a
Chinese in Sacramento, was
proved innocent; Eugene
O'Leery, a former service
man, sentenced from Sacramento on a grand larceny
charge, provided authoritative information as to his
identity, and John L. Johnson, negro, admitted his gulit
and confessed to participation
in other crimes, according to
the experimenters. Dr. R. E.
House, of Ferris, Texas.con-
ducted the experiments before several prison officials
and criminal investigators.
Dr. House declared scopolamin renders a subject incapable of mental inhibition
and deprives him of reasoning
so that he is incapable of lying
while under its influence. The
other faculties, however, re«
main intact, he said.

In the Path
Of Ihe Bee
How many beekeepers realise
bqw dependeot the world is upon
the bee for its "food. I had an object lesson on this subject lately-,
says Major Shallard in tbe American
Bte Journal, wbicb I think could be
beneficially passed on. At my home
on Bee mountain we bave plenty of
fruit and plenty of vegetables aod
|ots of bees.
The Canadian wonder, beans are
eure croppers and tbe tomato vines
break down witb the weight of tbe
fruit. Do not forget tbere are thou
sands of bees. Now move (in your
mind) to my bome in Sydney,a city
of a million inhabitants. We try to
grow our vegetables but tbe beans do
not bear and tbe tomato vines, al'
though tbey grow well, fail to fruit
1 What is tbe troub'e? I could not
understand it until I thought ot tbe
bees. No bees, no beans, no tomatoes..
A week or two back I saw a bee,
ode solitary bee, and I called tbe
family to watch the little fellow.

the tamato bed and then departed.
Her track was very definable,"and I
watcbed very elosely, and wbere sbe
went we have tomatoes on tbe vines
today. Few people really comprehend the value of the bee to tbe
world at large, independent of tbe
honey production.

will not be held until after the next
session of'the legislature, which will

The government has appointed

the province before leaving for Lon«

Officials of the department of la-
bur in their annual report show tbal
in 1922 there were ouly a dozen disputes involving stoppage of work
and that comparatively little time
was lost during tbe year tbrough

Columbia .berries will find a ready
market in Great Britain, where
jam manufacturers require large
quantities -of raw fruits between
June and October. Tbe fruit will be

Agent-General F. C. Wade advises
provincial growers to make a closer
study of provincial markets.
Hon Jobn Hart, minister of
finance, will visit Great Britain
shortly in order to make a study of
financial and industrial conditions.
He states that British capital jb becoming more and more interested in
investments in this country and is
hopeful of stirring up a wider interest among old country investors jn

As the.result of requests ond advice from 111 over tbe province, the

science building is well on tbe road
to completion, and with 52,000 volumes to be accommodated, it is
considered advisable to proceed witb
tbe work without delay. Hon. W.
H. Sutherland, minister of public
works, will call for tenders on the
project as soon as the plans are completed by tbe architects, Messrs.
Sharp aud Thompson.

FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 1923
Here is a very good reason why practical
farmers seek other occupations than that of
farming. An Ontario farmer packed some
apples in boxes, and in one of them placed his
name aud address, and requested the con
sumer to report as to quality and price. This
brought a reply from Weyburn, Sask., which
stated that the price paid was $2.50 for a box
which the producer gold for 40 cents.
The international bootleggers seem to think
that they own the earth, and that no nation
has a right to make laws which they are boun d
to respect. The action of foreign ships insisting on bringing liquer into American ports is
branded by William Jennings Bryan as "the
highest height of gall aur] impudence." It is
not often that we agree with the vigws expressed by Mr. Bryan, but in this instance we
must confess that we think he is right.
The comment of the London press on the
tangle that has arisen is, for the most part,
biased. Some of the papers express views
that, if reasoned to their final conclusion, are
contrary to international laws, and are not intended to promote pleasant relations between
two friendly nations.
The most sensible v'ew of the situation appears to have been taken by former Premier
David Lloyd George. In an address in the
Baptist church in London he made the following interesting observations:
"I hope we won't get excited over the seizure of liquor in New York harbor. It is not
merely that America seems to be well within
her rights, but I think we ought to extend a
certaim measure of sympathy to her in her
"America is making a very bold experiment
to deal with probably the greatest curse of
modern civilization
"It is all very well for us to say that all this
liquor is merely for our own sailors aboard
ships. I do not say this with regard to any
particular ship. It may not be so, but there
is no doubt fortunes have been made smuggling liquor into the United States in defiance
of a law which was passed by a greater majority than almost any other law in any other
"Give it a fair trial. I do not say the experiment will succeed. It is just possible that
America may have to modify it. It ls in the
interest of civilization that they be allowed
full time to test this effort to solve a problem
which is just as much ours as theirs."
In the last year oil refiners have been much
interested in what is known as the Linton
process of extracting gasoline, by which both
high and low grade oils aro made to yield
their utmost content of gasoline. The details
of the process have not been made public, bnt
some who have seen it report that the heavy
oil is filmed over surfaces heated to a certain
temperature, which causes vapors to rise that
are carried to a superheated chamber where
the molecules that compose the vapors are
"cracked" or disintegrated and form a new
combination: that which is popularly known
as gasoline. The oil is kept running over the
heated surface until it has given up every bit
of its gasoliue vapor. High grade oils are said
to yield 75 per cent of gasoline as against 30
per cent by the old pressure method.
The concluding dramatic scene of the Philippine insurrection in 1901, was General Fun-
ston's capture of Aguinaldo. In the guise of
prisoners the adventurous Kansan and a, few
comrades penetrated to Aguinaldo's mountain
headquarters, seized the leader and escaped
to the American. lines. Now, twenty years
later, the sons of those two leaders appear
among the successful candidates for admission
to the United States military academy. Frederick Funston and Emilio Aguinaldo will be
classmates at West Point for four years.
A pneess on which the chemists are still
working will, if it succeeds, extract the resin
from waste pine wood and make tee wood
itself available for pulp. In the Souteern
states tbere are four million acres of land covered with resinous stumps, now lying idle because it costs more to remove the stumps than
the land is worth. As the new process would
make the stumps worth $50 a cord, it would
pay to clear and cultivate the land. The process would produce not only pulp but valuable
by-products in the shape of turpentine and

Tbe Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Homo and Refuge for Baby and Infant*olind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Trailing and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of su^h or fortunate*, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Uovernment olBces in tbe various provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Ar
•(hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boa.id. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take iu the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is ootifidentlv expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
