-And Tbe World
Smiles With leu
If you haven't met Ralph De Pal-
ma it ls your rulisfortune. Hels one
of the most cheery souls I have ever
known. And his philosophy of
'•Smile and the World Smiles With
You" has much to do with his success.
De Palms is one of the real veterans of the automobile racing game
—a man who links the day when
the automtblle Was a curiosity with
the day wben the pedestrian spends
most of his time dodging it.
Because of his affability, his courtesy, his skill as a racing driver and
above all his wonderful sportsmanship, De Palnta has  been for years,
and will continue to be as long as
he remains in the game, one of the
most popular drivers.
One of the best examples of his
rank aB a true sportsman, and by
the way, true of the racing fraternl
ty as -a whole, is an incident at In
dianapolis that occurred many years
ago. In a sport where life many
times hangs by a slender thread, it
ie oxalting to find men, who can
smile at their own misfortunes and
wjth something behind their smile
acclaim) the man Who wins. Leading
with only a few miles to go DePalimi
ran out of gas, but he greeted the
winner of that race with a smile—
and victory mleant $35,000..
There is a lesson in the wonderful
spirit of the racing drivers.who smile
in a sport where triumph means their
livelihood, that athlete s in other
branches of amateur and professional
activities could learn to advantage.
De Palma has been racing continuously for a period of sixteen years
on dirt.brick and board tracks and
road race courses. He began his
career as a race driver at Briar-
cliffe,N.Y., in 1908, falling heir to
a car called Allan-Kingston when
the driver, named Campbell,was in
jured in practice for the race. The
race was for 350 miles, and Ralph
was running third when he lost the
right wheel af hia chariot in the
150th mile and collapsed, Lewis
Strang winning with an IsottaFras-
chini. Subsequently Ralph got the
car fixed up and went to Milwaukee
and there won three out of four
The following year he started the
famous duel With Barney Oldfield
in match races and drew first blood
by beating Barney over t he mile
route at Baltimore. Thereafter,
Ralph was never beaten ln a match
race with the exception of a set-
down at the hands of George Robertson, Who drove a ninety-horse
power Simplex, whereas Ralph had
a sixty-horse powjer Cyclone.

A cancer serum faking rats im-
mjune is described in the annual report of the British empire cancer
campaign. Dr. Thomas miisuen of
the Lister institute performed experiments on 50 rats successfully,
according to the report.
Injection of the appropriate serum
ln mlalignant tumors In the feet ot
rats, tbe report indicates^ caused the
Humors to disappear. Temporary
stoppage of circulation in the part
affected is a part of the procedure.
It wis found, the report declares,
that two tumors In different feet of
a rat could be made to vanish by
treatment of only one and that rats
Which had been' subjected to the

Gertrude Ederle's recent victory
over the English Channel, wrote
an epic into the already brilliant
aquatic records of America. And
while this youthful swimmer, who
broke all existing records in her
Channel swim, was being lionized ln
Europe for her victory, a sequel to
this event was taking place ln
America which will go down on the
romantic pages of journalism as one
of the biggest "scoops" in newspaper
Using a four-plane relay ln cooperation with the Canadian Pacific
steamer the Empress of Scotland,
representatives of the New York
News, landed the actual photographs
of the great ChanneJ swim in their
offices in Now York fully twenty-
four hours before other prints could
possibly arrive.
At the gangplank of the Empress
of Scotland was being raised at
Southampton, a messenger slushed
up to the ship and placed a bundle
of prints In the care of a passenger.
Even the Commander of tho ship was
Ignorant of their value until a radio
message flashed ln giving tbe Instructions for tho dlspoaafof the
prints. A seaplane would pick thein
up near Anticosti Island. True to
the arrangements the -seaplane wai
sighted a few miles from the Island
near English-Bay, and Commander
Latta gave instructions to un officer
to wrap the photographs in a waterproof float and lower them over the
side of the ship, Tho seaplane circled the ship and alighted. In a few
minutes the package was picked up
but. the sea hod. become so choppy
that il took the plane several hours
to taxi to tbe lee of the Island before it eould rise. Finally taking to
flight it flow straight to Rlmouskl
where the prints were divided and
placed on board two waiting land
planes. These two planes hopped off
for New York and were hopeful of
reaching New York for the Saturday
oditirin of the News, but heavy fogs
descended and killed all hopes. One
of tho pi'tri"r was forced down at St.
J'lnl aud success was up to the other
plane. After flying ln the tog almost
to Montreal, lt turned south and
landed at Plattsburg and met another plane at the parade grounds
there. Here the other plane took the
pictures and began the last leg of
the perilous flight to New York.
Flying at 112 miles an hour through
three electric storms and one of the
heaviest fogs ever encountered by
the flyers the plane landed at the
West Side Park, Jersey City. A little
over three hours after the final dash
was begun the pictures were delivered at tho offices of the News in
New York 24 hours ahead Of picture
en route via New York.
The secrets of the longe-range
German cannon that uouit-arded
Paris from a distance of over sixty
miles, closely guarded even after
the 'armistice, have now been permitted to leak out. following the recent death of the inventor, Ur. Fritz
Rausenberger, of the Krupp firm.
It has been generally guessed that
the guns Were the longest pieces 01'
artillery that had ever been constructed, and the new information
confirms these conjectures, for then*
length was 36 mjeters, or about 1.3
feet. Each gun wtis asss-aiDied out
of three principal parts. Into an ordinary 15-inch naval gun an inner
tube of 8.2 inch caliber, 98.4 feet
long, was fitted, and over the part
that projected beyond the naval gun
an additional strengthening hoop
waa shrunk on. The total weight of
the piece was 154 tons.
The weight of the 8.2-inch shell
was 220 pounds; is wall thickness
was about 2 3-4 inches at the base
and a little over 1 1-2 inches at the
top. Its head was given an extraordinarily long taper, 15 to zu inches,
to aid In over-coming the resistance
of the air.
' To obtain its unprecedented range,
the gun had' to be fired at an extreme elevation. Theoretically, 45
degrees would have been the proper
angle, but this wiouhl have been correct only in a vacuum, and to get
the shell far up into the thin air
Where resistance was low, the gun
Was set at 50 degrees. The uugte of
elevation remained fixed, and to
correct for differences in wind, air
pressure, ets., the powder charge
was varied, being calculated anew
for each separate, shot. Tnu charge
for the longest range at wnich any
of these guns was ever fired, 80
miles, waa 660 pounds. At the range
of 74 miles, the shell reached
heights of over 25 miles, making
more than two-thirds of its flight at
elevations of over 6 miles, or balf a
mile higher than Mount Everest.
The time of flight was three minutes
Due to the great length 01 tne gun
and the very heavy powder charge,
the comparatively light shell left the
gun's nozzle at the velocity ot over
9-mile per second, with the enormous muzzle energy of 43,000 foot
tons— enough to lift the whole mass
of the world's largest battleship a
toot Into the air.
Two Fuses Necessary.
Because the shells tended to drop
on their target, the city of Paris,
sidewise instead of end on as a projectile normally does, it was necessary to provide them] with two fuses
to insure their explosion on impact.
The fuse system1, worked successfully, for none of the shells that struck
Paris failed to explode, jvnotner -difficulty arose due to the long, hgh
flight of 'the shell; the rotation of
the earth tendered to deflect its
path, sometimes as much as half a
The terrifically high pressure,
temperature and. friction of the discharges of the piece tendea to make
the barrel bulge slightly, and because of its great length the gun
tended to "whip," raising the danger
of a premature explosion of the shell
in tho tube. This did happen once,
ruining one of the four guns. Tbe
other three, according to tlie terms
of the armistice, were disniailcd and
The designer of tbe battery, Dr.
Fritz Rausenberger of Baben-Baben,
Was a well-known authority on ballistics and had for several years been
associated with the Krupp firm1. In
addition to the long-range gun, he
designed the great 42-centimter
"Big Bertha" that destroyed the Belgian forts early in the war. This was
a relatively short-barrelod howitzer
of no great range but of terrific
smashing poWer due to the enormous
welght of its shells and the heavy
charge of high explosive they carried. '

Queen Marie of^Roumania took a day ofi
from commending the good qualities of face
powders and vanishing creams the other day
to drive for the first time in the first steam
locomotive ever built in Roumania. It is
rather hard forthe lay observer iu this country to realize that ttere are still many countries ln the world today where a steam locomotive has uever been built. The steam locomotive is the original development of a past
generation so far as this country is concerned.

The earth is 25,000 miles in circumference
at the equator. When Evans and Wells cir
cled the globe recently, they traveled only 20,-
000 miles. If globe trotters may choose their
own routes aud still receive credit for travelling around ihe earth, Commannder Byrd
holds the time record for that stunt. He circled around the globe iwice at its tip, the
north pole, within a few minutes.
The expectation of life at birth has increased
greatly in the past few years (in London, for
instance, from forty-one to fifty-three years),
but the expectation of life of the elderly has
not increased in proportion. In other words,
more people live to an old age uow than used
to, but they do not live to any older age. The
upper limit of man's life span has not been
raised appreciably, indicating that perhaps despite all that science can do, the human body
will simply wear ont within the usual time.
With the aid of the Mana "fish charmer,"
nearly 12,000 fish were caught on the opening

idolized Old Killinabe, whose mystic incanta

them in making tbeir catches. He took his
place on a high hill and danced the weird

The romance of the early history
of the Dominion Express Company, which started to serve the
Canadian public ln 1882 with one
horse and a second-hand wagon, and
the wonderful progress that has
been made during the forty-four
years of Its existence, was recalled
last week by the striking parades
that were held simultaneously ln the
four biggest cities of Canada to celebrate the Company's change of name
to the "Canadian Pacific Express
Whole fleets of motor express
vehicle** of all types, Including the
new trailer, bearing In shining lettera their newly assumed name made
their way through the streets of
Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and
Vancouver, on September first, when
the change of name became effec
tive. But the horse-drawn wagons
and ancient servants of the Company wero not forgotten; ln Montreal the parade was led through the
principal Btreets of the city by
Samuel Nightingale, who is completing his 30th year ln the service,
driving "Babe," a remarkable little
horse that has served the Company
for 19 years and can still take the
steepest hills on high. The wagon
ln which Mt. Nightingale was seated
was put Into the service ln 1890 and
is still on daily route.
The Vancouver procession was led
by the oldest pensioner of the company In this district, Robert Mason,
of North Vancouver, who joined on
July 17, 1889, and included the oldest double team wagon ln regular
use ln the company's business in
Canada, driven hy F. J. Everett,
himself an old-timer  of  26  years,
Eddie Hand, leader of the parade at
Toronto, was personally congratulated by W. S. Stout, President of
the Canadian Pacific Express Company, on bis 41 years of continuous
active service.
Mr. Stout, who has been president
for many years, was appointed superintendent of the Dominion Express
Company when lt was Incorporated,
almost a half century ago with
seven agencies and a territory of
446 miles. To-day the service exr
tends over the breadth of Canada
and to all parts* of the world with

Banff Springs—"The last time I

Brigadier-General H. S. Birkett, of
Montreal, who stayed at the Banff
Springs Hotel on his return from a

the opinion of Morley Roberts, famous English novelist, who after a
forty year absence from the West,

Definite indications of the largest
building year Canada has had in
more than a decade are now shown
by the record of the first six months
of thiB year. The very large and unusual total of $194,543,600 worth of
new construction for the first half
of the current year andj-ontemplated
new work to the value* of $304,698,-
600 forecasts great activity for the
remaining months. During June
contracts awarded totalled $54,186,-
400, an increase over June, 1926, of
63 per cent.
One of the greatest foundations
upon which the Canadian national
spirit rests was laid by the Canadian
Pacific Railway was the conviction
uttered by J. D. Cameron, of Glasgow, In an address before an audience at Pembroke recently. "Not
merely did this railroad act," he
said, "as a bond between all thc
provinces of the Confederation, but
it was, by its conception and final
construction, a greater force than
anything else for the unification of
the scattered provinces."
The sea-faring settlers of the Hebrides are not all fishermen as one
might expect, but farmers in a small
way known In the rugged northern
Islands as crofters. Father R. A.
MacDonnell, the clergyman in charge
of the immigration of these hardy
folk to Western Canada, disclosed
this interesting point recently en
route to his headquarters at Red
Deer, Alberta. Father MacDonnell
has been in Canada about fifteen
years and has been engaged in immigration work during that time.

Good posture may make a plain
person attractive and distinctive,
says Hygeia Magazine, ln its healthful beauty department. People with
correct posture have a graceful walk
and carriage and a certain appearance of style, even if they have no
other claim: to beauty. They also
have better health than those whose
posture is poor. In spite ot this,
one rarely sees a perhon with perfect posture.
People with good posture do not
get tired easily. The weight of their
body is properly distributed over
several sets of muscles, instead of
all falling on one or two, as is the
case when the body Is not held ln
good posture.
High heels throw the wearer out
of balance and cause incorrect posture. Ordinarily, a mfilitary heel
about 1.5 to 1.75 incheh high is satisfactory.

<Pure beer is

for every
f7*?HERE is no season for the enjoyment of
\__J the benefits of pure, healthful beer. Not
only in summer, but also in the cooler
months its tonic properties are of the greatest
value in the fortifying of the body against the
strain and tension of modern life.
Used regularly with meals pure beer imparts
not only the nourishment of the grains
from which, it is made; it assists valuably
in the assimilation of other foods, and with
its vitamin content makes up for the lack
of vitamins from which modern diet so
often suffers.
Pure beer, such as is made for the people of
British Columbia by the Amalgamated Breweries,
is of low alcoholic strength—only 4j%, as called
for by law—only enough to stimulate the bodily
functions and rest the nervous system.
Many qualified physicians prescribe pure
beer as a beverage for nursing mothers,
both for its tonic action and on account
of its richness in malt extractives that' so
fit the physical needs of nursing mothers.
Every day in the year you may have beer, carefully brewed
by the Amalgamated Brewers, on your tabic, as a useful
and zcslful part of your meals. You may buy it by tbe

Leonard Richmond, R.B.A.,It.O.I.,
the well known British artist is
among the latest to succumb to the
lure of singing the praises of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies. In Apollo,
■ magazine of the arts, Mr. Richmond writes of the Rocky Mountains
as one of the most magnificent sights
of the world.
Towards the end of March 1925,
the artist made his first journey into
the heart of Canada. He writes, "As
the train advanced from Calgary, the
"Foothills" of the Rockies gradually
emerged in view, suggesting the
appearance of a body-guard, or
sentinels, guarding the sterner mountains beyond.
"It is not expedient or desirable for
me to describe in detail the emotional
ascending scale that my feelings
experienced as the train approached
the actual Rockies themselves. It is
enough to state that my highest
imaginative thoughts had never visualized so much impressive force and
dignity as those austere mountains
conveyed that late afternoon in
"The general color on that particular afternoon was monotone in
effect. I have not seen any Japanese
wood-cut print that equalled the
■uperb draughtsmanship of the finely
designed groups of pine trees which
were almost black in tint, contrasting
sharply against the virgin snow.
.   "The mountains of Canada suettest
many forms of expression for artists.
In that respect they are probably
unique. The Intellectually endowed
modern painter has scope enougn to
create works of art, based on the
innumerable suggestions of dynamic
force, grim tragedies of form caused
by ancient volcanic eruptions, and
occult feelings, too, can be awakened
by close contact and communion
with the bouI of the mountains.
"It is impossible for any artist to
sketch more than a fraction of such
a vast area of varied subjects. Once
the artist is situated right in the
mountains there is no occasion to seek
for subjects or to walk any distance
for desirable views. There is something interesting to paint from any
"Some of the most interesting
pictures that I have seen recently of
the Rockies are those where the
artist has improvised in colour and
form on the original theme in nature.
By this means Nature can be made to
look more natural in a picture and
the artist's thoughts can he crystallized   into   positive   expression."
Mr. Richmond, who painted •
number of beautiful views, states that
although Lakes Louise, O'Hara,
Moraine, and Emerald are famous in
the lake world of Canada, he was
intrigued by tbe smaller sisters, Lake
Mirror ana Lake Agnes, known as
the "Lakes in the Clouds," above
Saint John. — Representatives of
Boards of Trade from all over the
Dominion will gather here about the
