Montreal, Oct. 8.—Gratitude for the -part played so
resolutely arid unhesitatingly by the Dominion of Canada
in the Great War was voiced here today by Lloyd George,
who for most of the period of that strnggle wasprime minis
ter of Great Britain, in the first formal public address of his
tour of Canada and the United States.
Speaking to an audience which crowded the Mount
Royal Arena, with its seating capacity of 10,000, to the
doors, the man who occupied so outstanding a place during
the great war declared with ringing eloquence that Canada
in that struggle was ''tried practically for the first time on a
great scale, in that burning, scorching crucible, and she came
out pure and refined gold.

Maple Leaf Mine in Franklin
Camp Was Sold This Week
The Maple Leaf mine in Franklin camp was sold at
privata sale in the law office of J. F. Crowe in this city on
Wednesday to Thomas Dunlap, of Chesaw, Wash., for
$4000. Another bid for $4000, made by John Miller, of
Walla Walla, Wash., could not be considered, as the full
amonnt of the bid did not accompany the tender.
The old Maple Leaf company  made an assignment  a
few weeks to Dennis St. Dennis,  of Nelson, and  arrange
ments were made for the disposal of the property at  private
sale.    This sale has been adjourned from time to time until
last Wednesday, when the mine was finally sold.
At the request ofthe Walla Walla shareholders ofthe
property, Mr. Dnnlap and H. W. Young motored to that
city last week, and a satisfactory agreement was reached
between the interested parties.
The Maple Leaf has been developed to   the shipping
stage and  is considered one of the most valuable mines in
I the camp.    It is announced that work will soon be resumed

Notes, Notions and Notables
English street railway cars, or trams they
call them, are double-deckers, with seats on
the roof, in most towns. Now they are being
fitted with a new type of shafcless periscope
for "searching" top decks. Experiments made
recently have been successful, and there is
little doubt about the device co ning into jjen -
eral use. It is a mirror tixel at etch end of
a car, and, viewed from the stairway, it enables the conductor to see what is happening
on deck witnout having to go upstairs. From
the footboard the conductor can always note if
there is any movement on the high level gangway as halting points are approached, and
thus time is saved and scrambling avoided.
Lord Strathnairn, bagged large numbers of
prisoners. Atone place the authorities were in
a quandary.as they had a great number of prisoners and could only spare a very few soldiers
as escorts. They were afraid that some migh t
escape on the journey to Dnblin. So they appealed to Lord Strathnairn for advice. "Take
away their braces and cut off the buttons
from the trousers," was the reply. This practice was often resorted to by the British Tom
mies during the Great War, when they had
to deal with large numbers of German captives.
The California Fruit Growers' exchange
salvages its by prodncts. Last year its plant
at Corona worked up 650 carloads of cull
lemons into citric acid and lemon oil. Another
plant handles 80 carloads of cull oranges a
month, converting them into orange oil, concentrated orange juice for beverages, orange
vinegar, marmalade and orange peel. The
refuse furnishes pectin, which is the substance
that causes fruit juices to jelly.
Late one Saturday night a clergyman received a wire from his bishop ordering him to
preach the next morning at a certain church.
The parson knew nothing about this particular
place, but he prepared his sermon and arrived
just as the service had started. When he gave
out his text, "Without money and witnout
price," there was a titter among the congregation and the whojeof his sermon was received
with smiles. After the service was over he
asked one of the churchwardens what was the
meaning of the laughter. He was told that the
parson whose place he had taken was named
Price and that he had absconded the day before with a large sum of money.
The Earl of Meath, in his new book,"Memories ofthe Nineteenth Century," tells the following among other good stories: Public
schools in the old days were much harder
training ground for boys than they are today.
One of the old class rooms at Eton had only
one small window, and the door—-which led
straight into the grounds—had to be kept
open iu all weathers, in order that theVe
should be sufficient light in the room. One
day, when it was snowing hard, the snow was
driven into the room, settling on the forms,
the desks and the boys. Some of the boys
began to brush it off their clothes, when the
master spotted them and shouted angrily:
"You young worms! Do you call yourselves
British boys, and you can't stand a little snow
on your knees? Shame on you! your fathers
are the rulers of Englaud, and your forefathers
have made England what she is now. Do you
imagine if they had minded a little snow that
Canada would ever have been added to the
empire, or if they had minded heat we should
possess India or tropical Africa? Nevor let
me see you shrink from either heat or cold.
You will have to maintain the empire which
they made."
Recently, a newspaper dispatch from Chicago declared that a highly edncated man,
whose uame it gave, a civil engiueer by pro-
fess:on, and a holder of several academic degrees, had decliued the offer of a professorship
in a college unspecified in order to become a
plasterer at $104 a week in Chicago. We do
uot know whether the dispatch is authentic or
not; but it is completely plausible. At present
pay a young man who wants money will do
better at plasteriug than at professional work
of any sort. Whether he will be better off
twenty years from now is another matter.
Captain E. T. Pollock,governor of American
Samoa, reports the finding of a turtle tbat
had been left on the Tonga islands by Captain
James in 1773. According to Captain Pollock's report, the turtle exhibited signs of extreme age; it was blind and when walking
creaked like an oxcart.

At the Institute of Politics at Williams -
town, Mass, Mr. Bakhmeteff, formej Russian
ambassador to the United States, predicted
the ultimate fall of the soviet government.
He based his prediction on the fact that the
communists are waging a losing fight against
the growing demand of the peasants for individualism and ownership of their lands. He
looked forward toa new Russia in which individualism and equality of opportunity, operating as tbey do in the United States, would
bring prosperity and happiness. Social revenge has run its course, he thinks; aad the
peasant is becoming an independent farmer.

A certain bishop, whose Christian name
was Anthony, regularly entertained the divinity students in his diocese. He pointed out on
one oecasion that it was very necessary tha t
a clergyman should know how to adrainiste r
to the sick and dying. He proposed therefor e
to go into his study and lie down on the sofa,
with his face turned.to the wall, as if*he were
dying. The students were to come in, one by
one, and administer to him. Afterwards he
would tell them what he thought of their
methods. After much argument, it was decided that a young Irishman should be thc
first student to go.in and administer to the
patient. He went into the study and found
the bishop on the sofa, covered with a rug.
The student raised his hands in horror and
cried: "Oh! Anthony, Anthony! Is it the
drink again?"

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of sush unfortunates, who, for the lack of suoh ser«
vice, 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 graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious 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 Brst home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur 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 looated in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

ture must be fed. Colonies that are
weak, those covering less than six
frames, should be united. This may
be done by the newspaper method;
or two weak colonies may be
brought together and wintered in
one hive if itis divided by a close
fitting division board. This latter
method provides tbe beekeeper with

Having secured a large force of
young bees, the next step is lo see
that each colony has sufficient
stores to not only carry it through
the winter but also through the
early spring till pollen and nectar
are coming in, thus enabling it to
build up rapidly. The Btores provided should be of the best; no unwholesome honey containing a high
percentage of solid matter should
be given. If natural stores are deficient, a syrup of two parts of the
best granulated sugar to one part
water should be fed. Tbis being last
stored will be the first consumed

cellar wintered should weigh at least
sixty pounds without their covers,
while those wintered outside seventy
Protection from the cold is very
necessary, as it not only retards tht
consumption of Btores but also conserves tbe energy of tbe bees.
Colonies wintered outside should
have at least three inches of pack-
ing underneath them and about
their sides with six to eight inches
of packing on top. The most econo
mical case is the quadruple, as each
colony has the warmth from its
two neighbors. Colonies Bhould be
placed iu their cases and packed
underneata and about sides before
feeding. For feeding, ten-pound
honey pails, in the cover of which
fine boles have been made, are considered very satisfactory.
Colonies to be placed in the cellar
are usually left on their summer
stands till tbey have had their last
cleansing flight; that is usually in
the second or third week in November.
In all preparations the beekeeper
should keep the ultimate object in
view—strong colonies in spring.—

John  A.  Manly  returned  to his
home in Ocala, Florida, on Wednes
day   morning,   after  a short  visit
here at  the  home  of  his brother,
Joseph L. Manly.    Mr.  Manly  was
ooe of the historic figures of pioneer
life in Grand Forks.   He was chief
engineer of the Spokane &  British
Columbia railway when it was conn
Btructed between this  city and  Republic,  and   built and  for several
years  conducted   the   Yale   hotel,
wbich up to the time  wben it  was
destroyed by the big fire that wiped
out over oue half of the city was con
sidered to be the best hotel in south
ern British Columbia.  Besides tbese
interests,   Mr,   Manly   was also n
large landowner,   and   be acquired
considerable publicity when he sold
his   ranch  east   of the city to the
Great Northern railway for $20,000
in order that the road might secure
a right of way through the the land
Mr. Manly is now a big   landowner
in Florida.    It is said that his visit
to this city was for the purpose of
looking in the validity of tbe Gran
by  company's title  to some of  its
lands here.   He donated these lands,
he says, to the company under certain conditions as an inducementfor
it to locate its smelter bere, and  he
claims tbat the removal of the smel
ter violatesjthese conditions and that
certain portions of the lands should
revert to him.  It is hinted that the
matter may be tested in the conrts.
Mayor Hull states  tbat  the  Mr.
Manly's claim  does uot affect  the
land  upon   which   the  Mill creek
water right aud the  flume now being constructed are located, recently
purchhsed   by   the  city  from  the
Granby.   In any event the city can
lose nothing—it has paid $1000   on
the purchase price aud  sold $1500
worth   of  steel   from   the  smeller
buildings. This explanation is made
because many   unfounded   rumors

it took a long, hard pull, but Tanlac
finally brought me around in fine

and such complete relief from the
