Victoria, June 3.—A nsw record
in tbe value of mineral pjoduc*iion
ol Britieh Columbia wut- nut ihliebed
in 1925, according to tbs annual report of the department of mince just
issuni, which fhowp a total output
ol 961,49*2,242 n. compared witb
948,704.604 in 1924, an increase of
9l2,78v,638 or 26.2 per cent,
Tbe annual report contains the
final and revised figures for 1925
and civers tho whole miniog situa-
tioD in tbe province. It will prove
of exceptional intereel to those engaged in the industry which is, at
present, attracting so- much atten-
tion, not alone in ths- province but
throughout tbe country nnd abroad.
Tbe showing made in 1925 is
especially pleasirg to Hou. William
Sloan, provincial cecr tary and minister ol mines, wbo expressed bis
Utmost satisfaction at tbe rapid advance being made by the industry,
and wbo predicts tbat at the present
rate of progress tbe value of British
Columbia's mineral production wili

& Smelting Company nl Canada at
Trail; the bulk of tbe production
came from Ihe company's famous
Sullivan mine at Kimberley, and the
rem inder frnm the treatment of
customs ores and concentrates. Tbe
increased production of copper nas
due to increases from tbe Oranby
company's mine, mill and smelter
at Anyox aod tbe Britannia company's copper mine at Britannia
Beacb, and to the commencement
of operations .in August at tbe Allenby Copper company's miue and
mill near Princeton. Offsetting tbese
increases, there was a decrease in
copper output from tbe Rossland
mines of tbe Consolidated company.
Mr, Sloan points out tbat while
tbe production of gold in 1925 was
less tbdo in 1924, tbe year was a
very active ooe io placer development and testing of low grade d n
posits of gravel. An interesting feature of tbe year's placer miniog was
ibe successful operation of the Ka-
f ue Copper Development company's
dredge near Barkerville, in tbe Cariboo district, wbicb made an output
of gold valued at 995,066. Lode gold |-umbia has produced minerals pf  an

Quantity increases ol production,
Hon. Mr. Sloan points out were
made in 1925 in the metals, copper,
lead and sine, and in coal and coke.
Slight decreases were shown in tbe
quantities produced of placer gold,
lode gold and silver. Building ma
terials showed a slight decrease,
while miscell neous minerals showed
• considerable increase in value.
Tbe greater production value in
1925 ws in large part due to greater
quantities of tbe various metals produced and in pirt by higher metal
prices. i gj-gg
An increase ol no less tban 29.3
per osnt, or 910,621 230, was shown
in tbe value ol the mit illifeorous

Value being946,481,227. Tbe largest
increase in metal production was in

rumored, may be chosen by the
General Council of the United

shows a decrease of 9785,266 as
compared with 1924, tbis being accounted for by tbe decreased pro-
ductfon from the Rossland mides.
which were non productive during
most of tbe year.
There was a substantial tncrease,
Mr. Lloan points out, io coal production for 1925, the increase
amounting to 338,996 long tons.
Tbis increase in output was from
tbe Crow's Nest district, wbere over
three limes as much coal was pro
dueed as io the previous yeai. The
mines in tbis district were closed
during a large part of 1924 owing
to labor tronbles, and tbe output
was very mucb less tban normal
Amicable arrangements bave now
been made with labor, lost markets
have been regained and tbe indue-
try is now in a bealthy condition in
tbe Crow's Nest district 'The 1925
production of coke shows tbe con
eiderable increase of 44,570 tons as
compared with tbe 1924 out-ut.
A deci-eis.1 in coal prodt/ction occurred in 1925 in the Nicola-Princeton district, aud a very slight decrease in tbo Vancouver island coal
producing district. Mr. Sload states
that competition from foreign crude
oil is still keenly ftlt by the Van
cuuver island mines.
A slight decressed output of build
iog materials was shown in 1925 bs
compared with tbe precediug year,
but it ia believed tbat there was
nearly as much'building and construction as in 1924.
Britieh Columbia producers substantially benefited from the higher
metal prices which prevailed during
1925. Three prices were bigber for
silver, copper and zinc tban in the
preceding year, but slightly lower
for lead; be decrease in tbe average
lead price.as explained in the report,
ib owfng to the Loodon price being
used instead of tbe New York' price,
wbich was taken in 1924.
Prices of silver, lead snd zino, tbe
minister of mines explains, are now
excellent, and he expects that tbe
present average le<el of prices will
be well maintained in tbe future.
During 1925 the average, price  of
copper wi.s a little more thrn a cen'
a pound higher than tn 1924. The
preeent 14 cent level for copper is
expected to be raaiujnined and this
price is good enough to gradually
stimulate copper productfnn in Brit
ish Columbia, Costs of miniog, including wages and supplies, have
been pretty well stabilized duriug
the past two years, so that with good
metal prices aod reasonable costs tbe
future for metal mining in Britieh
Columbia, Mr. Sloan it convinced,is
most favoiuble and tbe industry will
undoubtedly bave a proeperoue year
in 1926.
It is inteiestiog to note, went on
the minirter of mines, tbat tbe asin*
ing industry ol British Columbia
bss steadily increased witb but few
exceptions. Thirty years ago (iu
1895) tbe province produced minerals to tbe vatue of $5,643,042, and
ten yea-s ago (in 1915) tbe production was less ihan balf tbat of 1925,
being 929,447,508.
In 1852, wben tbe now famous
Cariboo gold rush was inaugurated,
until the end of 1925,   British Col-
one billion dollars, the exact figures
beiqg 9920,919.628.
Dividends declared by companies
engaged in the mining industry   ic
tbe  province, during  1925, are reported as fojlows:
Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Ce.of Canada 93,238,054
Premier Gold Miniug Co.. 1,600,875
Howe Sound Copper Co.. 467,159
Silversmith Mines, Ltd...     125,000

Coast Quarries  10,000
Gilley Bros  5,000
ClaybburnCo  20,000
Total for year 96,319,808
While tbe above amount of 96,»
319,808 is shown ss distributed in
1925 as dividends, it by no means
repreeeots the total net profile earned
during tbat year. In nearly all cases
substantial sums are set aside from
profits to the credit of surplus or re»
serve accounts. In ibe case of tbe
Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company of Canada, and of the Premier Gold Mining company, net
profits were very large in excess of
divindend requirements, tbe first-
named company's net profits in 1925
aggregating, after payment of 92,-
474,769 in taxes. 910,780,637.
Profits accruing to private companies and individual mining enterprises as a rule are not given publicity aB dividends, as in tbe case
with witb the large companies, so
that no record of tbese profits is
available, tbougb they are in the aggregate very considerable.

k NE of the finest Alpine territories to be found anywhere
on the North American Continent is that surrounding Mount
Robson, (13,068 ft), highest peak
in the Canadian Rockies. Here the
visitor find3 magnificent peaks,
awe-inspiring glaciers and delightful Alpine valleys with their magnificence of wild flowers to charm
the heart of the nature lover. In
1924 the Alpine Club of Canada
held its annual camp on the shores
of Berg Lake, shown above, and
members of that organization,
many of whom have climbed in dif-
paits of.   the   world, were
unanimous in declaring that Canada held no more splendid Alpine
und scenic territory than this.
Nor is it necessary that tho visitor be an experienced Alpinist to
enjoy the beauties of the Mount
Robson district, for there are within a short distance of the Berg
Lake bungalow, splendid peaks
which are easy enough in ascent
for the tyro and yet offering splendid views of the surrounding Alp-
which are constantly floating on ita
surface. Beneath is one of the

Victoria^ June 3.—By the fall of
1927 British Columbia's bop growing industry wili have undergone a
a complete change. The acreage
will have been doubled and Indian
labor will have been replaced by
whits labor. This announcement
wae made today by Hon. E. D.
Barrow, minister of agriculture.
Tbe minister explains tbat lor a
number f years hop growing on a
commercial scale iu tbis province
has been limited to about 500 acres
in tbe Chilliwack and Agaesiz dit—
trict. This year, however, an ou'-
side concern purch sed COO acrts
of tbe bed of wbat was once Sumas
lake. Already balf tbat acreage is
planted, more than 14,000 poles
bave been erected, and several carloads of ire strung on the poles in
readiness for growth. On tbe edge
of ihe reclaimed area, moreover, an
additional ISO acres bave beta
planted this yoar, and this will le
increased to 380 seres next spring.
This important development testifies
to tlm su 'lability of lbe Sumas reclaimed area for this kind of a crcp.
Apart from tbe money expended
in labor, on materials for preparing
the land,, and taking care of the
gjowing crops, 300 to 350 pickers
are required lor every 100 acres, and
although in tbe first year after
planting only a partial crop is produced, tbe fall of 19*27 will witness
at least 1000 acres in full production
nnd from 3000 to 3500 pickers ems
In deciding to use white labor instead of Indian labor the concern
operating tbe new acreage point out
that tbere will be a new field for
tbose workers in this province who
usually go to the prairies at harvest
time. The development in this ret.
epect alone, therefore, will bave an
important beneficial effect upon the
employment situation.

A machine for showing the relation of one
set of facts to another set of facts has been
invented by a Princeton university student.
Although the machine has fewer parts than
the simplest typewriter, its capabilities are
tremendous. To illustrate, it will tell a man
how long he may expect to live. The factors
used in tbis determination, according to report, are the quantity of tobacco smoked
daily, the average duration of sickness p year,
and the average blood pressure. Measuring
the mortality is an important part of the insurance business, aud the new machine might
serve as a useful check on the expectancy
tables set up by erudite actuaries. But probably the machine won't displace the logarithmic gentlemen who quote the odds on the so-
called human race. Bankbooks still flourish
by the side (approximately) of new-fa gled
betting machines and it does seem a little more
neighborly to get a run for your money from
a man than from a mechanism.
Sometimes - bony brushes and hand miirors
become dull in appearance. They can be im
proved considerably by rubbing in a little
white vaseline with a soft piece of material
until the wood has absorbed all the greases
and has taken on a rich gloss.

Although you may never have the adventurous experience of being set adrift in a lifeboat or being lost among the clouds, nevertheless we think you will enjoy this description  by «Elmer B. Collins, nautical expert of
the  navy  department, of the  "Clock  in the
Sky":   If you were to blindfold   an expert
navigator of an ocean liner, ship him to any of
the world's seven seas, transport him  to  any
of the various points of the compass, either in
the direction of the warm tropical  waters   of
the South Saa isles or toward the cold stormy
seas ofthe frigid zones, and, then after removing the bandage from his eyes, you were to
supply him with nautical almanac, sextant.and
chronometer, set to the time of Greenwich, in
twenty minutes, after he has   observed the
altitude of a couple of stars, his whereabouts
will be known to him within a mile or so.    Is
not tbis an amazing triumph for the worth and
usefulness of practical astronomy? Surely the
movements of tbese numerous cosmic b dies
are for other purposes than sentimental star
The German chemical firm, the Radische
Anilin und Soda Fabrik, will, it is said, place
on the market in the near future an anti
knocking compound having none of the drawbacks of the lead compounds that bave caused
such controversy. The new compound, which
permits of unusual compression in tbe automobile cylinder, is iron-carbonyi, a compound
of iron and carbon monoxide, It is a brown
liquid, boiling at 103 degrees C, and soluble
in benzole aud petrol. Although it is toxic,
yet this disadvantage is almnost entirely
mitigated by the fact that in the atmosphere
and daylight it is completely oxidized to ferric
oxide and carbon dioxide.
To some people the art of life consists in
evading the fare. Some steal a ride. On thi

Some ride on a pass. This pass is handed
to them by olhsrs, usually ancestors, in the
shape of money, position, or tali nt. Some one
else pays the way, and they accept it com-
placeutly as the proper thing. No sense of
debt goes with it Fortunately, such a free

Poems From EasternLands
From The Iskender-Nama
Up aud singl O 'anqa-natured nightingale!
High in every business doth thy worth prevail;
Siugl for good the words are that from thee proceed*
Whatsoever thou dost Bay is prized indeed.
Then, since words to utter thee so well doth suit.
Pity were it surely if thy tongue were mute.
Blow a blast in utt'i-ance that the Trusted One
Wheu he hears,ten thousand times may cry: "Well done!"
J'p and sing! O bird most holy I up and sing!
Unto us a story fair and beauteous bring.
Let not opportunity slip by, silent tbere;
Unto us the beauty of each word declare.
Seldom opportunities like this with thee lie;
Sing then, for th' occasion now is thine, so hie!
Lose not opportunities that thy hand doth find,
For t-ome day lull suddeuly Death thy tongue shall bind.
Of how many singers, eloquent of words,
Hound have Death and Doom the tongues fast in their
cords! i
Lose not, then, the occasion, but to joy look now,
For one day thy station 'ne*ath earth seek must thou.
While the tongue still floweth, now thy words collect;
Them as Meaning taper 'midst the feast erect.
That thy words, remaining long after thee,
To the listeners' hearing shall thy reoord be,
Thy mementoes lustrous biding here behind.
Through them they'll reeall thee, O my soul, to mind,
Those who've left memedtoes ne'er have died in truth:
Those who've left no mementoes ne'er have lived in sooth,
Surelv with this didst thou come to earth.
That to mind should ever be recalled thy worth,
J'May 1 die not!" say'st thou, one of noble race?
Strive, then, that thou leavest here a name of grace,
Net earnings of the Canadian Pacific Railway for March were $2,-

three months ending March 31 net
earnings were $6,531,067, an increase
of $2,675,385 over the corresponding period of last year and the best

Iu Shanghai the public parks, the gardens
and  the trees of the cathedral yard, in the
center of the business district, are the hunting
grounds of hundreds of Chinese coolies aud
boys. The quarry is the green cricket. To the
Chinese a chirping cricket is a symbol of good
luck.    And crickets swarm on all the trees in
the international settlament and  their  noice
rises above even that ofthe traffic,. Boys climb
the trees, pick off the crickets, put them into
small basket-like cages and then go  through
the streeis selling them for a copper or  two
• etch.    One cricket or more are to be found in
almost every native home,  where tiny chirp

cricket is to a Chinese the height of musical

DELIVERIES of grain to the
lakehead by the Canadian National Railways during September just closed exceeded the combined deliveries of September, 1924,
and 1923, according to grain figures
issued at Winnipeg on Oct. lut,
18,913 cars were delivered during
September, 1925, againat 4,051 in
September, 1924, and 12,650 in the
same month of 1923. The daily
average for September, 1925, was
630 cars against tho previous record
of 322, established in September,
New records wcro made by tho
Canadian National in other branches
of the grain -movement also. Marketings during the month were 52,-
207,000 bushels against the previous
high mark of 39,770,000, mado in
September, 1923. Loadings were
27,878 cars and 37,217,000 bushels
dnring the month compared with
22,508 cars and 28,472,000 bushels in
September, 1923. Total loadings on
Canadian National lines to the end
of September this year were 29,284
cars and 39,038,000 bushels, against
11,079 cars containing 14,632,000
bushels at the same date last year.
On several days toward the end
of the month, loadings reached from
1,400 to 1,500 cars per day, which
during the ten-hour working day required the loading of approximately
two and a half cars per minute in
order to reach this total. Reducing
the time to seconds it was estimated
thnt at least 60 bushels of grain (the
contents of a farmer's wagon box)
wero loaded into a car on Canadian
National Western lines every second
during the ten-hour working day.
The heaviest week of the
season   by   four   million
bushels  in grain marketings closed   on   Oct.  1st.
Loadings   for   the   week
were   heavier   than   any
previous week   since   thc
opening of the grain season by 1,200 cars or nearly    ,-gs
one million bushels.  Com-   ;jfs|l
pared  with  statistics  *—■    '"'''"
tho   same   period
last    year,    the
week's marketings
were just twice those of 1924, while
the loadings were larger by 3,837
cars, or 4,258,000 bushels.
A record week was also experienced at the lakehead, when 6,149
cars of grain were unloaded and 60
boats, carrying 13,292,000 bushels,
were cleared for eastern markets.
During the same week last year only
2,208 cars were unloaded and 29
boats, carrying
5,806,000 bushels,
were cleared.
Canadian National loadings for
the week by provinces were: 3,-
486,000 bushels in
Manitoba; 6,970,000 bushels in Saskatchewan; 1,571,000 bushels in Alberta; making a total of 10,475,000
bushels, or 8,580 cars, for thc period.
Marketings at C.N. points were:
4,167,00 bushels,Manitoba; 11,825,000
bushels, Saskatchewan; 2,220,000
bushels, Alberta; total, 17,568,000
bushels. This leaves in store at
midnight Thursday in country elevators in the three provinces in tho
order given above: 2,619,000, 12,-
734,000 and 1,972,000 bushels, a
total of 17,355,000 bushels in storage as compared with 6,579,000
bushels at thc same date last year.
Tho movement west is speeding
up also, as threshing progresses
n tho western districts, 417 cars
having arrived at Vancouver during August and
September. This is just
201 cars more than during thc same two
months last year.

Changed Methods in Handling Milk
Where proper sanitary measures art
neglected the bacteria in a dree* *f
milk look tiki IhU.
How much do tho farmers and
dairymen of the United Stutes pay
in toll to bacteria In milk? In process of arriving at the answor to
this question, representative!! of leading milk and dairy products companies of New York recently met
with officials of the State Agricultural Experiment Station, with the
Department of Farms and Markets
and the College of Agriculture at
the Experiment Station, Geneva.
The bacterial count is being used
more and more as a basis for determining how much per pound a
farmer is to be paid for his milk.
Getting the bacterial count under a
given figure means millions of dollars annually to Uncle Sam's dairymen. Dairymen, themselves, are
•live to this question, and where the
milk produced is a material part of
the income from the farm, complete sanitary precautions are being
taken to insure a low bacterial count
In the milk.    ■,
Precautions start at the beginning
Of milk production and continue
clear through until the time tbe milk
la in the hands of the consumer.
To begin with, properly ventilated,
•lastly cleaned stables are provided;
plenty of bedding Is given tho cows;
platforms are built the right length to
accommodate the particular breed of
cows that are kept; the gutter is built
wide and deep; the animal is clipped
about the udder and flanks period-
Where sanitary prieautioni art t**m
there are few harmful haeteri* in milk.
The white tpeckt art bacteria.
lcally. The cows are groomed carefully every day and just before milking, loose particles of dirt are brushed
off, or, whon tho cow ls cllppod,
wiped off with a damp cloth. Small
top milk pails aro used to receive
milk from the cows. Utensils such as
milk palls, milk cans, milking machines and separators, are thoroughly
sterilized after each milking.
The fresh-drawn milk ls Immediately removed to the cooling tank
where It is cooled to a temperature
of 50 degrees to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
On receipt at the dairy, the creamery or the condensory, the same extreme sanitary precautions prevail.
White garbed workers who hava
passed medical inspection, who observe rules of personal cleanliness
as well as hygiene in the handling
of miik and milk products, go about
their duties tfllcieiitly and Intent*
gently. Immediately after the pasteurizing of whole milk, lt ls bottled
and capped. The date of bottling is
stamped on the cap and the milk, ls
usually sold beforo 35 hours have
elapsed since pasteurizing.
What a difference over the old-
time methods of handling milk!
It is these changed methods in
the handling nf thc nation's milk
supply that has swelled tha individual consumption of milk to mof*
than 54 gallons per year.
