A sergeant in the British army,
according to Punch, once lost his
temper at a particularly awkward
"Never approach tbe 'osses from
be'ind without. speaking to 'em!"
he roared. "If you do, tbat thick
'ead of yours'll get so kicked we
shan't'ave nothing but lame 'osses

"I find general business eoHss*-
tions quiet but improving throughout Canada and undoubtedly tha
increase in tbe priee of farm products will prove very encouraging
to the west," said Grant Hall, vice-
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, on 'his return from a recent tour of the Dominion. "Largs
orders for hardware shipped over
our lines of late to the wast indicate that the crop money is now
beginning to circulate more readily,
which in its turn is a mark of tha
farmer's confidence in the country.'*
There was a general increase in
all phases of the lumbering industry in Canada during 192S, aa
compared with the previous year,
according to the latest report of the
Dominion Bureau of Statists**. Tke
average value of the output in that
year amounted to $189,864,877, as
compared with $114^24,8815 in IMS,
an increase of 22.4 per cent. In
this respect the lumbering industry
comes third on the list of manufacturing industries in Canada, with
the pulp and ' paper industry first
and the flour and grist mills second.

Passengers aboard the Canadian
Pacific steamship "Empress of
Prance," now touring the world,
had a unique experience recently
while visiting Ceylon. Returning
from a run out to Handy, .tbe old
capital of the Cingalese Kings and
Site of the Temple of the Tooth of
Buddha, a train-load of the travellers was held up by a herd of wild
elephants which, hemmed in oil
either side by the jungle, ambulated
along the track ahead. This was a
feature of the journey which delighted those of the tourists who
were not anxious about missing the

Montreal and then across the continent via Canadian Pacific Railway, in order to join ber company
for the film. The remainder of
the cast are proceeding to Banff
from Los Angeles and it is expected
that shooting of the scenes will
commence shortly. A very considerable number of big pictures have
already been taken at Banff, which
seems to have a great attraction for
discerning stars and directors who

Road to Lake to Be Improved
Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister of public works,
arrived in the city last night, and today he made a survey
of the roads in the district in company with D. McPherson
to determine what work would be required here during the
coming summer.
The minister, we are informed, decided that it would be
necessary to surface and otherwise improve the lower road
to the lake this season. He is also credited with the statement that tenders for the overhead bridge at the Gilpin
crossing would soon be called for.
When there are so many
live questions to* be considered, it seems absurd, senseless and inapplicable tt) attempt to create sympathy for
the dead as the paramount
issue in a political campaign.
Yet this seems to be the very
tactics adopted by the the
opposition in the Grand Forks-
Greenwood by-election. Al)
good citizens revere the memory of the worthy dead. Let
them rest in peace. They are
out of place in a modern campaign, where live issues engross the electorate.

"My Greatest Thrill In Sport"
Being an Account of an Adventure Which Overtook Ozark Ripley
On the Nipigon.
Ottawa, March 25.— I In
dumping clause as proposed
in the budget speech of \l-s-
terday reads: Resolved, that
the first paragraph of subsection 1, of section 6, of the
customs tariff 1907, and subsection 7 of said section 6 be
repealed and the following
substituted therefor: "In the
case of articles exported to
Canada cf a class or kin d
made or produced in Canada ,
if the export or actual selling
price to an importer in Canada is less than the value thereof for customs duty, there
shall in addition to t\\. duties
otherwise established be levied
collected aud paid on said articles on their importation into
Canada, a specisl duty or
dumping duty equal to the
difference between the said
selling price of articles for export and the said value thereof
for customs entry; and such
special duty (or dumping
duty) shall be levied,collected
and paid on such article although it is not otherwise
dutiable. Such regulations-
may also provide for exemption from special duty any
article when the difference
between the value for customs entry and the selling
price thereof to the importer
as aforesaid amounts only to
a small percentage of its value
for customs entry."
The actual change involved
in the amendment is the sub-
stituation in the text ot the
words "For customs entry"
for the phrase "When sold tor
home consumption."
Fir many yean
I have hunted
and killed all kinds
of big game on the
American Continent except polar
bear, and I nave
taken most kinds
of fresh and Bait
water game flsh.
But the greatest
thrill I ever experienced during
my thirty years'
devotion to outdoor sports came
to me this summer* in July on the
Nipigon River in the rapids just bel
the    Canadian    Pacific   bridge   at
Nipigon River in the rapids fust below
the    Canadian    Pacific
Nipigon, Ont.
It all happened late in the evening.
The trout at this point are the most
famed and largest brook trout in the
world. But juat at that time they
were not striking as usual on account
of the exceedingly cold night. However, I decided to go to the river to
try out a little split bamboo bait
casting rod, %V, ounces, that I had
made for casting very light lures. It
would be a revelation to myself and
other anglers to take trout in this
manner, when fly casting is the vogue.
The water under the Canadian
Pacific bridge, and below for a
quarter of a mile at least, Aowb like a
millrace. I attached to my line a
small weighted feather casting minnow, just to see if the little rod would
shoot it. At the first try 1 shot tbe
lure at least 125 feet across the water
toward tbe west bank and in the
opposite edge of fast water.
The very instant that the tiny lure
struck the water the second of the
only two large rainbow trout that
up to then had ever been taken out
of the Nipigon rose and seized my
lure. He was a monster. It seemed an
impossible accomplishment ever to
land that fish with the little rod and
the fine nine-pound test casting line.
Tbe thrill that came in that approach-
f» darkness was Incredible. The
! • of moose and grizzly bear was
in a bad light n< .irly an
hou., danger of falling into
that iU *t reach, trying hard to
lead th out of the fast water
where ti., 'rrent would not aid it

side. The only thing that helped me
in that fight was the generous supply

land that whopper leaping rainbow
with that tiny rod was something I
had never conceived possible.
It began to grow darker. Suddenly
on the left bank I saw a big black
bear take to the water and swim
deliberately toward my fish, despite
that terrible current. Evidently he
took it for a cripple. Right off, that
rainbow sensed his presence and
darted for the east bank as fast as I
could real in slack, and the bear kept
his course direct for him.
The rainbow heading straight for
die upstream water, with occasional
leaps from it, finally gained the
stretch of upsfeam current, wilh the
bear only a few yeards behind him.
That bear did not become apprised of
my presence until he made a lunge
for the fish, missed it as it leaped out
of the water, and then scrambled for
the bank to get a better survey of his
expected prey. That very moment he
got a whiff of the man scent, wheeled
and scrambled as fast as he could for

About the only salvation for the fruitgrower
of this province seems to be a 100 per ceut cooperative with its own storage warehouses in
the principal cities in the prairie provinces,
so that the associated could deal directly with
the wholesalers. A dozen warehouses wiuld
be sufficient. If the orgauization is not in
shape to finance snch a scheme at present,
there are usually suitable buildings in all cities
that can be rented.
When the prairie faamer can buy British
Columbia apple at the price the Brithish Col
umbia fruitgrower can afford to produce
them, plus a reasonable charge for tr-snspor-
lation and handling, there will be no overproduction of apples in this province.

In 1761 the distinguished sinologist, De
Guiges, published a paper which he had found
in the works of early Chinese historians, in
which appeared the statement tbat in the
fifth century certain travelers of their race had
discovered a country which they culled "Fu
sang," which from the distance and direction
described by them appears to have been
northwest America. The original document,
according to the authr nf "Fu-siing, or the
Discovt ry of America by Chinese Priests in
the Fifth Ceutury," was the report of the
priest-missionary, Hosli Shin, in the yeai 499
A.D., who return-.d from a long journey in
the East. The report was entered in the year
book of the Chinese empire, and while the evidence offered is limited, it has every appearance of being a serious state document.
Archie Bell, in his "Sunset Canada: British
Columbia and Beyond," says there is a history of Vancouver island that is clouded inthe
vapor and incense of China. The stranger or
the "native" of Vancouver island quickly and
constantly observes the resemblance of the
Indians to the Chinese and Jadanase. Merely
circumstantial evidence would point to
very early visits of Chinese voyagers to this
coast—whether intent on voyages of discovery
or in ships driven across the Pacific by storms
is a matter of speculation Chinese junks and
vessels were blown across the Pacific as|late
is the last cenrury, and the 6ailors captured
and enslaved by the Indians.

Here is a pretty good one that came through
'heairfrom thecharter day anniversary banquet
of thc University of California in the Hotel
Oakland, Oakland, Cal., last Mondayjnight, as
broadcast by KGO: "During the rush hour
in the Central station, New York, eighteen men
wero in line before the ticket wicket. The first
man in the line laid thirty-five cents on the
counter and said, 'I want to go to San Francisco.' 'But,' replied the ticket seller, 'you
can't go to San Francisco for thiaty-cents.'
'Well, where can I go then?' asked the man.
The seventeen men behind him told him where
he could go."
The most important end of apple growing
today is quality prodnction and it is the first
consideration if the industry is to prosper. The
three years' investigation carried on by the de
partment of agriculture to ascertain the probable reasons for apples sdoiling in transit or
shipment bas revealed, among other things,
that apples produced on young trees were
poorer shippers end keepers than those produced on older trees; that apples produced on
clay loam have better keeping qualities than
grown on either heavy clay or sand. Bough
handlidg is, however, the cause of greatest
loss and amounts to from 10 to 15 per cent of
the crop marketed by the average grower.
The two argest flawless crystal spheres in
the world were recently exhibited in New
York Oue of them measures nine inches in
diameter and the other just fifteen-sixteenths
of an inch less. The value of the pair is placed
at $50,000. The spheres were brought to New
York from China, where they were cut from
a perfect Burma crystal with a small metal
hatchet. The work required infinite patience.
In ancient times in the far east and in Europe
crystals were supposed to be ice in permanent,
form. In -Japan small crystals were said to be
the breath of the Great White Dragon, while
the larger ones were supposed to come from
the Violet Dragon.
The curious appearance that the bald head
and neck of the ibis gives is heightened by the
bright red coloring of the top of the head and
the pale blue of the neck and sides of the
head. The general color of the plumage is
metallic green. This rare ibis is a native ofthe
mountainous parts of South Africa. It is comparatively little kuown.
A tribute to the exellence of Canadian cattle
that are shipped to Great Britain appears in
a recent issue of the Review of the River
Plate, published in the Argentine Republic.
The Canadien cattle, the writer states, are
finished on grain and their flesh is of better
flavor than Argentine alfalfa or grass fed
cattle. The Argentine's beef, ho points out,
has a splendid appearance, but it does not
equal in thickness or flavor the Canadian grain
fed bullocks.
A radio set that is equipped with three or
more tabes will work better if the tubes are
changed from one socket to another. The
amplification factor of a given type of tube is
generally said to be the same for all tubes of

like other individual characteristics of a tube,
varies slightly for each tube.
Many people are so busy telling the world
