Speed Is a Matter
of Steady Pace
The car you are driving ls prohr
ably capabjo of a* speed of from
sixty to seventy nitles an hour—but
you can not use this speed for any
length of time without flirting with
the angels. The modern highway,
while built like a speedway, isn't a
one-way proposition like the racetrack. Therefore, the driver who
speeds must always make frequent
and nerve-racking stops which cuts
down his average time to a minimum. His speed is iar below that
of the drtver wlho maintains a staedy
pace hour alter hour.
What is speeding? Since it Ib
the primary cause of a majority of
all automobile accidents, isn't it
about time that it is plainly de
A great many motorists think
that there is something magically
safe about motoring, when the
speedometer hugs close to 20 miles
an hour. Yet speeding can happen
at any speed.
One driver has discovered that
m/uch can be learned about speeding by driving the car with the
speedometer disconnected. For . the
test he secured the services of a
friend who followed him over a prescribed course in another car. The
driver With the disconneced seed-
ometer proceeded just as he would
under normial conditions, and then
checked up v-*lth tho actual speed
record, as noted by the friend following him. The results Were surprising. Invariably he drove from
5 to 15 miles an hour faster than he
thought he *. as going,
This was particularly ' noticeable
in trallic and in going down bill on
the open highway. '
An interesting thing happened
on one of these tests. The ' sudden
appearance of another car, turning
in from a crossroad, called for the
quickest possible stop. The driver
without a speedometer actually
failed to stop in time to avoid a collision, just because he thought he
was stopping quickly enough, and
never bothered to reacu ror the
tmergency brake, until it was too
The experiment showed plainly
that the average driver can not
guess his speed—and that he invariably goes faster than he thinks.
It shosw that a car driver is speeding, whenever his conception of a
safe stopping distance is less than
the actual stopping distance. Putting two and two together, this experiment shows that a driver who
drives Without a speedometer, or
who doeB not watch his speedometer, is speeding—at any speed.

use of light uutonuobile trucks.
Ohevrolets figure prominently iu
fleets recently purchased by mine
operators in South America.
Centuries ago tlie Incas developed
these mines located in tlie most inaccessible inland ranges. The
Spanish conqulatadores, envious of
the' Indians' wealth, made short
work of reducing the native population to a condition of slavery, and
supervising the uroductton of gold.
In later years silver and tin have
been the mjost profitable nietul*
produoedd ln Bolivia, with the operations serously handicapped by tlie
inuacccssiblllly    of tlie mining sites.
Until a year ugg burros and Humus, Carrying a m*i**li»um load of 100

The School car Is so fascinating
that lt would make anyone, no matter how old, want to go to school
again. About one-half the car is
devoted to the school room, whicb

and girls and big ones too, a desk
for teacher, a blackboard, bookcases
with school books and good fiction, and even a real bell to summon
the scholars. Behind the schoolroom is the bedroom of the teacher
and in the rear of this again comes
a kitchen ~o thoroughly equipped
wilh everything, from stove to icebox, as to bring envy into the heart
of any housewife. Thc teacher's
name is Walter H. 'McNally.
It ls anticipated that the car will
stop at about six communities during the month, making n brief visit
of from three lo six dnys. Upon

be   enough hot   water to heat every house
comfortably.   In addition every  home  will
have a continuous flow of hot water.  Narrow
pipes, buried three feet deep in the ground,
have been led through   vegetable   gardens
with the result that an ideal temperature for
growing has been developed and that potatoes
have   been  planted much earlier and have
also   ripened   much   earlier   than in   other
places, where no pipes have been installed.

Spilt Milk Costs Uncle Sam
$77,399,685.00 Annually
The amount of milk spilt, soured,
rejected and otherwise wasted annually, Is 3,819,986,000 pounds. This at
32.25 per hundred would approximate annually the stupendous
amount of $77,399,685.
However, a cheerful note rings
through this tale of economic loss to
a nation. The same report shows
a 1924 increase of 108 pounds of
milk per cow over 1923 production.
Deducting this from tho figure previously given, leaves a loss through
waste of only 313,607,325, a mere
bagatelle, compared with our national debt of more than twenty billions of dollars.
The Increased yield per cow is due
to heightened efficiency on the farm;
and future years promise even
greater increases.
Dairymen have discovered the futility of feeding non-paying members
ot their milk herds. They have
learned that losses lurk in Insanitary
milk production. They havo discovered the advantages that lie In
swatting the bacteria tbat hide ln
unclean stables, undipped, un-
brushed flanks and udders of milk
cowb and unsterlli-ted utensils. As
time goes on, the unavoidable waste
of milk will be more than offset by

The Wool Industry in Shut!,!, Africa
Letter frnm E. S. Btrl.,,:. It ,:,n'„n till
The Union of South Africa is
rightly classed among the great wool
producing countries of the world.
Climatic conditions there are admirably adapted to breeding nnd raising of the Merino type of sheep
with a strong, staple wool.
A large part of this country is
suitable only for the raising of sheep,
and the government is making progressive and intelligent efforts to
improve both the sheep and the manner of preparing the wool for market.
Jackals being a strong menace in
South Africa, long-time government
loans arc extended to sheep owners
for thc erection of jackal-proof fencing. Government sheep experts arc
maintained permanently in allotted
districts so that their services anil
advice may be assured at a nominal
The mutton sheep of South Africa
is the fat-tailed, black-headed Cape
—a non-wooled sheep. As no crossbreeding for mutton lambs is done,
the wools are purely Merino in character.
Progress in this South African industry is particularly noticeable in
the harvesting. Despite the fact that
Kaffir labor can be secured at thc
equivalent of $3.50 per month, thore
is a trend towards the modern shearing machine as against the age-old
hand blades, which, even on this
continent, have not been discard-d
by many'otherwisc entirely progressive wool raisers.
A study of this fact, however,
readily reveals the reason for it.
While there is a first cost for the
machine, the unskilled black adapts
himself to its use much more readily
than to the hand blades, and soon
does a remarkably smooth job of
shearing with the machine.
Once adapted to the use of th-*
machine, its economic value is demonstrated in the materially greater number of sheep shorn daily, the
better market value of the wool, the
Ptttr -.. : .'. nd.    Kajji.- .ln.at-n
fewer maimed sheep, and not least
important, the additional 6% to 12%
more wool obtained with the machine over and above the amount ol
wool secured with the hand blades.
As a cons'-quencc, the machine resolves Itself into a .small investment
with certain and !*;■; returns.
Steadily, the science of wool-marketing in South Africa is fast ap-
proachlhg the sciertific efficiency of
the Australian i uirkoting plan,
which is, without i!»iibt, the most
practical and officii :it in existence
to-day. •
Considering that the four provinces, Natal, Transvaal, Orange Free
State and Cape Province, which
comprise the Union of South Africa,
have over a million square miles
less of territory than the populated
Provinces of Canada, it is surprising
to note that they contain over ten
times as many sheep as the whole
of Canada. The Union of South
Africa ranks about fourth among
the countries of the world in sheep
population. These points alone put
that country In line as a strong contender for future leadership in the
wool  industry.
It is interesting lo note, however,
that, the great bulk of their pro-
gressiveness is due to quickness in
observing the advantages of modern implements and machinery and
up-to-date methods and discarding
the old ideas that are not nearly so
In view of the wonderful progress
the wool industry has mnde in South
Africa in a comprratively short
time, that industry i* surely destined
to take a large ami important place
in thc economic progress of the far
distant Union of  South  Africa.

In a recent report from the Canadian Pacific Agent at Shanghai received at Montreal it is stated that
the summer in vicinity of Shanghai
has heen trying on account of
drought. This may have a disastrous effect on this crops. The long
and intense heat wave was only recently broken by a typhoon which
struck the Coast near Shanghai.
A plan is projected by the Osaka
Prefectural Government authorities
in Japan for the promotion of a
large exposition in commemoration
of the tenth anniversary of the restoration of world peace. It is expected thst the exposition will be
opened in Osaka in 1929. The plans
for the exposition, which will be
carried out at tremendous cost, have
been approved by the Prime Minister.
So successful on Canadian farms
have been young bachelors, who,
prior to residence in this country
were students in agriculture at the
Hodleigh Salvation Army Schools
in Essex, England, that the Army
will shortly receive into those institutions their first classes of married
men destined for farm lands in the
Dominion. The course will be given
during six months, and will mean a
thorough training in branches of
agriculture, particularly adapted to
conditions in Canada.
Prospects for the establishment of
an air route in Japan for mail and
passenger service have brightened
with the announcement that the
Ministry of Communications have
included an appropriation in the
budget of the Communications Department for such a service. It is
anticipated that there will bs
enough passengers willing to pay
double the railroad fare for the sake
of speed between Osaka and Tokyo,
the leading cities ef Japan.
The Hebridean emigrants who
are leaving their lone sheilings and
misty islands for a new life in
Canada have, curiously enough,
hitherto been ignored by the novelist, although the romance of this
migration, extending over a hundred
years provides a wonderful field for
fiction. The extent of this field
has now been realized, -however, in
the new novel "Eyes of a Gypsy,"
by the Canadian writer John
Murray Gibbon, who is the well-
known author of "Drums Afar",
etc., and Dean of Publicity of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
Action should be taken by the
authorities in the Province of Quebec to shorten the open season for
hunting deer and moose, according
to Ozark Ripley, well known writer
en animal and wild life and prominent hunter and angler. Mr. Ripley
also believes that the deer season is
too early as in September the deer
are still in their red coats, and their
numbers are only conserved through
their ability to hide amongst the
leaves of the underbrush which have
not yet fallen. He believes that a
scarcity of this game will result
from the lengthy season.
The Earl of Clarendon, Under
Secretary of State for Dominion
Affairs in the British Government,
who has been touring the Dominion
investigating the conditions under
which the 3000-family scheme from
Great Britain is working out, de-
clared, in an interview at the Canadian Pacific Windsor Street Station
at Montreal recently, that one of
the greatest things upon which the
success of the scheme depended was
the loyalty and cheerfulness of ths
mothers of families brought out to
Canada to be located on farms. His
Lordship paid a special tribute to
the type of women brought out
under this scheme whom he hatl met
during his personal v'sita among
immigrant families.
