The regular. meeting ef the oity
council waa held In the council chamber on Monday evening, the mayor
and all the aldermen being preeent.
P. H. Donaldson, general road fore-
Mian, addressed Hie council regarding
'work recently done on the street east
Of the Tale bridge, and recommended that it be surfaced with crushed
rock. He enquired regarding the
poswtbils-ty of acquiring this material
from the city rock crushing plant.
The clt y agreed to rent the use of
the rock cruhhlng plant, furnishing
die power and oil and a man to take
charge of the machinery at a rate of
|K per day, which would also include tb* rock material.
■District Road Engineer Gwyer
wrote the council furnishing information ln regard to treating a portion
of the transprovincial highway
tbrough the city wilth Tartlia, the
eity paying 2. per cent of the cost.
The council approved of the proposal
subject to the flnal sanction of the
oomtmlttee of the council who were
delegated to inspect: the work being
done at Penticton.
Brie a. Tlwood and L. E. Wells,
on behalf of the Athletic association,
asked permission to hold their track
meet on the baseball grounds ln
West Orand Porks. The council offered no objections, but twferred the
delegates to the Are department,
who have . control eof the grounds.
The board of works hah promised
assistance ln repairing  the track.
-The' account for water rental on
■ the Smelter lake properties for 1926

. A. U HcCulIoch, CE, submitted a
report on the necessary electrical
u-fcohttiery for the Smelter lake project, and was authorised to secure
tenders for furniishiing and installing the same.
The water ahd light committee re-
pot-ted that the Ire hydrants' had been
flushed; that the reservoir had been
drained and given Its hprlng scrub
bing, and that s°me damage bad
been done to bhe C.P.R. power line
by the recent windstorm, bnt the
committee did not feel that the city
was responsible for repairing tbe
•ame.   The report was adopted.
The board of works reported that
some slight repairs were necessary
to the house occupied by IS. T. Dins
The health and relief committee
reported that the citizens had responded to the spirit of -?les*h-up day
ln a satisfactory manner.
A. Baker was granted the use of
lots .6, 7, 8 ,and 9 to block 28A, and a
rental of -10 was placed on lots 9,

It ih a slow-witted wolf that will
allow the. hunter to catch him napping nowadays. Among wolves, says
Enos A Mills In bis book, Watched
by Wild Animals,, the "ssiety-flrst"
motto appears to be: Avoid, being
•ten by a man; and never, never
touch anything that carries the scent
of man or of Iron or steel-
So thoroughly have wolves learned
that . man is likely .to be dangerous
that one night some hiunterh in Wyoming were content to leave a freshly elk lying on the ground In a wolf-
infested region, protected only by a
handkerchief that: they had tied to
one of ttie horns. In another instance a hunter left a deer out all
night In wolf country and kept the
wolves away merely by rubbing his
hands oyer the carcass.
Coyotes also are wary; their keen
wits seem - to be always awake. One
day a'-man carrying a. gun strolled
Into a field at an isolated ranch
where hunting was forbidden. The
appearance of the man dibered little from) that) of aome men near , by
wftowere carrying .Ashing poles, but
the wise coyotes eitber scented or
could distinguish the gun and knew
wh»t tt was for. Presently all hur
rleh away. (While the gunner j-e
•flsBTO^d at least one of the coyotes
Sat Vn-e-i-e he oould overlook the field.
Within a few .minutes afttr the man
had cone all- came. strolling hack.
Apparently the supply of men Who
were born Bnd reared on a, farm and
who have a college training Is not
increMlnjs as faat as the demand.

A well planned system of distributing, flumes will save water and labor. Any grower planning to build
new flumes will do well to visit the
experimental, station at Sum-overland and study the various types of
laterals which are being tested there.
The following hu'ggestlons may prove
helpful to those who are unable to
visit the station.
Flumes should be laid to as uniform a grade as possible. A fall of
two inches In a hundred feet is sufficient to ensure a good flow. It jp
well to have the last few lengths of
a lateral practically level in order,
to check the flow and reduce the
danger of a washout at the end of
the flume. Where the contour of the
ground makes it necessary to run
distributing flumes on a steep grade
tt is advisable to bore the delivery
holes through the side low enough
to cut a groove In the bottom board.
Unless this Ib done the water tends
to rush past the hole. A metal gate
at each delivery hale Is a great convenience ln regulating the amount
of water supplied to each furrow.
V Good rehults have been secured
with flumes made of two-inch lumber for the bottom board and Inch
and a half lumber tor the sides.
Each sixteen-foot section of flume
should be supported at tbe center as
well am at the ends, and the supports
should be set on large stones. This
procedure adds materially to the life
of the flume. With metal fluming
spjecfal attention hhould be paid to
thia matter of supports or the material ls likely to buckle out of shape.
When' turning water into a new
flume or one which has not been
used for some time it is wtll to close
all delivery gates and run the water
to the far end-of the flume. By this
means all leaves and other loose material which might block the gates
are flushed out. (It fs poor practice
to throw earth into wooden flunteh
in an attempt to stop leaks, because
by so doing small stones ara introduced which work down between the
boards and eventually aggravate the
leaky condition. In well .built flumes
whicb are kept in. good, repair most
leaks will close up within an hour or
two after tbe water is turned In.
Those which persist may be plugged
with sacking} cut into narrow strips.

Land «gf The TigerfR0M BLBRYWBBRE
Shanghai, April 27.—The United
States chamber of' commwoe at Its
annuai meeting yesterday, adopted a
resolution requesting the resignation
of the Chin* Weekly Review from,
membership ln the chamber ibeoause
•af its attitude on thty Chinese (situation. It was Charged' that the Review, which is the only American
periodical ln Shanghai, opposed the
sending of United State;, troop* to
China. . . ■■,.-■;::'
J. P. Powell, of Hannibal, Mo., is
tha editor of the publication. • He admitted -hlb. opposition to troops and
barbed wire barricades and is the
center of a heated "controversy because of an article ln the Review
bearing the caption: 'e"Well, They
Saved the Fair Lady, But—" referring t the city of Shanghai. In tbe
article Powell protested against barricades and military meahures, which
while possibly saving lives, he asserted were' destroying business and
infringing the rights of the Chinese,
and he asked, "Whetehr it is better
shot or starved to death?"
Mr. Powell Issued a statement that
he had no intention of resigning or
changing his policy. j
"The American pea-pie,". he said,
"have no business to interfere in the
internal affairs of the Chinese.
"I believe that: the' Chinese; may
nave the right to express their views
as well as-the British or Americana,
or others, and so long as I am engaged In the publication of a United
States paper In Shanghai it ls my
Intention to give them a sjuare deal."
Bengal will ever remain the land
of the tiger to the small boy, but it
is more properly the land of jute and
tea to those who think in economic
terms. This large province at the
eastern extremity of India straddles
the northernmost point of the Bay
of Bengal, and stretches northward
to the peaks bf the Himalayas. Thus
it has two totally different sections,
the low and often marshy plains of
the south andthe rolling hills and
mountains 'of the north, separated
from Tibet only by the diminutive
native Indian states ot Sikkiso and
Bhutan.   ,
Bengal ls slightly larger than Kan
sag with as many Inhabitants as are
found in New York, Pennsylvania,
Illinois, Ohio, Texas and Michigan
combined—two-flftbs as many as in
the entlere United States. More
than 80 different languages are spoken among.the human horde, not to
mention the various dialects. That
language In India changes every ten
miles, perhaps is not far wrong.
The narrow northern extremity of
Bengal resembles that of Idaho, and,
like the western state.Bengal spreads
out as it stretches southward. Below
the northern neck the border line of
Bengal zigzags in all directions.
Bengal's gateway is its most homely feature! Those familiar with the
nxurky rivers of the province know
when the coast is near even before
land ig sighted, for the beautiful
Indigo-blue water of the Bay of Bengal begins to take on a brownish hue,
due to the silt that is brought down
from the north by the Ganges and a
labyrinth of rivers and creeks that
pierces the coast line. .Between the
banks of the numerous channels are
swampy peninsulas covered with
malaria-infested junble land ln wbich
roam tbe famous Benval tigers', a few
remaining elephants, and other wild
animals. These wilds and the waterlogged lowlands just north of them
are called sundarbans.
When the Ganges goes on Its an
nual rampage and overflows its
banks for 200 miles from its mouth,
the sundarbans are almost totally
submerged. IThee less flooded area
Is planted In rice and lt is an interesting sight to Bee 'rowboat farnUera"
tending their submarine crops. When
ithe water subsides, it leaves a fertile
layer of earth on the lowlands and
In the river valleys, making southern
Ben-el regions prosperous agriculturally. Jute, rice, wheat and many
otber products tthrivt in the newly
fertilised earth.
Calcutta, capital of Bengal and the
largest city of India, lies about 80
miles up the Hooghly. Since it ls the
only large port at the head of the Bay
of Bengal and l's easily reached from
the Interior by numerous canals, rftv-
ers, and railroads, Assam and neighboring provinces also use it as their
port. Therefore the Hooghly is filled
with shipping. The passenger bound
for Calcutta is not sorry, for the odd
Httle native junks and large oceangoing vossels absorb bis attention
from the ugly marshes and thickets
on shore.
The first evidence of human existence as Calcutta is neared Is the appearance of a few houses and then
the tall smokestacks of jute mills
that loom up above low brick buildings, where jute sacking Is made in
enormous quantities, and shipped to
all partB of the world. Much of it ls
used in Canada, particularly in handling our farm products. Little does
the cotton picker of the South realize
that' the more cotton he picks, the
more mouths he helps to feed in Bengal, for the ecotton-bale wrappers are
usually made of jute. Likewise the
farmer cultivating his potato fields,
does not realize, perhaps, that the
size of his crop helps determine how
many natives are to be employed,
and that the least failure of the crop
affects the jute mill workers. Potatoes are, ln the large part, dandled
tn jute Backs. More -than 1125,000,-
000 worth of jute products are exported -from Calcutta annually.
A Mttltefarther up the Hooghly, the
docks wtiloh stretch ten milei* along
the river frnt come into view. Some
ot then! are the finest In the world
equipped with latest devices for
handling cargoes. They are filled
with articles of commerce, and roar
with activity.   Jute, rice and tea ap
pear to be the staple products for
shipment. The tea exports from Bengal help India to keep her reputation
as the chief tea exporting country ln
the world. Perhaps that reputation
is, perhaps, due to the fact that Hindus and Mohammedans are not tea-
slppers and nearly the entire production ls available for foreign markets.
Calcutta Includes Calcutta proper,
the trading center, Maidan, the residential section, and Howrah, on the
opposite side of the Hooghly, the
manufacturing center and terminus
of tbree large railroads. Together
they are called Greater Calcutta and
have a population greater than that
of Detroit.
In sharp contrast to the commercial and industrial districts, Maidan
is a place of elegance with beautiful
parks and lakes, and fine residences
and government buildings.
In the center of Maidan is a park
that ia one of the few breathing
places to the vicinity of Calcutta. It
ranges from three-quarters to a mile
and a quarter In width and about two
miles In length. The palace of tbe
governor of Bengal Is at the north
end. This Is a mansion of white
stone, twice as large as the American White House and much bore
magnificent  and   impressive.
New York has Its Fifth .avenue
dress parades and so does Maidan,
with the Indian contingent far more
rich and colorful. The Maidan parade sometimes include the viceroy
when he happens to be ln Calcutta.
Then there are other high government ofilaials, rich rajahs of the several hundred native Indian states in
tbeir gorgeous robes and jewels, and
Anglo-Indians, as the offspring of
British fathers and Indian mothers
prefer to be called.
Calcutta owes its beautiful government buildine to its distinction as
the capital city of India prior to 1912,
when the seat of government was re
removed to Delhi.
Nearly all Bengal is a flat fertile
plain from the Sundarbans to the
footliills ot the Himalayas. Tbls
foothill country is reached after a
day and night of rough train riding
from Calcutta. A narrow-gauge railroad Is then taken to reach Bengal's
roof, Darjeeling, perched 7000 feet up
above Himalayan peaks.
Darjeellng's reception committee
consists of an army of porters who
take the place of express trucks.
They are not men, but Tibetan women who are famous for their strength.
Most- of DarjeeMny's Inhabitants
are Bengalese, Nepalese, Bhutanese
and Tibetans. All the native women
seem to try to "outjungle" one another in wearing ornaments. Even
those who look as if they had never
had a square meal are bedecked with
earrings, anklets, bracelets, and neck
laces of silver, glass or turjuolse.
. Darjeeling is also a trading post
between the mountain people and
the Bengalese of the lowlands. Sunday ls the favorite trading day. Foreigners bring tea, skins, salt, wool,
musk and cattle to the Darjeeling
markets and return to their countries
with ivory, lnhigo, cotton goods,
dried fruits and sugar.
iM-ports received by me rrorliiclaai
Department of Agriculture indicate
that the crop acreage this year will
be much larger than last year. Soma
of the estimates show as much as
500,000 acres in advance of 1926.
. Soger Babson, noted statistfeian,
in addressing the Canadian Club of
Toronto, said that in 26 years time
Vancouver would be the greatest

oeed, that of the Atlantic
It is announced by the Hon. W. R.
Motherwell, Minister of Agriculture,

to be completed about November
lst, 1928.
It has been officially announced
that the Canadian Pacifie Railway

which extends in Quebec from Lima

Paquette. This line has not been
operated since November, 1926.

Over 1,000 members of the parish
of St. Aldan's Church, New Jersey,
Journeyed to Montreal over the Canadian Pacific lines on Easter Monday to visit the famous Oratory of
St Joseph. The visit was in the
nature of an act of thanksgiving for
the miraculous cure last year of
their pastor, Rev. Father Roger
McGinley. Father McGinley had
been suffering from heart trouble
for some years preventing his entering the pulpit Following a visit to
Brother Andre, however, ln Montreal, his condition improved almost

Passengers on the Canadian Pacific flagship "Empress of Scotland," now completing a world
cruise, visited the ruins of the site
of the old dty of Panama destroyed
in 1671 by Sir Henry Morgan, the
famous English pirate. The ruins
have come into the limelight recently on account of the fact that
treasures valued at over $60,000
have been discovered by a young
English fortune huntor, Lieutenant
George Williams. The discovery,
which was made by means of a delicate violet ray detecting instrument
ef his own invention, consisted of
gold Church ornaments, gold dust
and jewels. The delicate Instrument
still indicates that larger treasures
exist at this site.
Completing a Journey of over 30,-
000 miles during which ths entire

Victoria, April 23.—Whetehr W.
J. Bowaer will jump back into the
political arena depends on Dr. S. i\
Tolmie, Father Time, the date of the
next general election and the consistency of the lure of the Oak Bay
golf links.
This was the former Conservative
leader's answer last night to five
hundred of the rank and file of the
party who jammed their way into
the cham|ber of commerce to present him -v-ith a petition signed by
more than 3000 electors, urging him
to be a candidate here at the next
provincial  contest.   . ,
Discussing his political career with
ironic humor, Mr. Bowser frankly
declared be would stay in retirumeut
until Dr. Tolmie, the new party chief:
tain,, called him out of lt.
His own personal ambitions , for '
the leadership were gone, he bald,
killed by his enemies within the
party. He realized if he re-entered
publls life it would be as a follower,
not as a leader, but, he added, there
was no one in British Columbia more
loyal to the Kamloops convention's
choice for Uie leadership than he
In view of the large apple crop of
the past season and the Interest that
exists in promoting greater consumption of this crop, the remarks of Herbert Hoover last fall to apple growers at Wenatehee, Wash., are julte
pertinent. The following extracts
are taken from,his speech:
"You are faced with an opple surplus t his year, and this surplus
brings to you a grave problem, and
that problem fs t prevent the small
surplus from setting the price fer all
ho rest.
"You aro lo blame for the lo*
prices of apples. As growers >•>»
:i>i.ve taken very Tti'e interest In lhe
problem  of   ultlmat-   distribution   of
our    product*,   -You    compete   flrst
vith yourselves and next concrete
.•ith the other apple growing communities of your state and finally
compete with the other apple growing regions of the country. You pile
up gluts in certain terminalh, while
there Is famine In otlier terminals.
"From time to time the department
of commerce has suggested greater
cooperation among the growers of
the country. First there should be
cooperation among the growers tn
each community, and next cooperation of the apple growing districts
with each other. That Is an ideal
that will come some time, but my
feeling is that it will take another
puarter of a century.
"The shippers of the country should
perfect an organization bearing upon the marketing end of the products
they are handling. The shippers
need the high vlBlon of cooperation
so that the growers' products may bo
shipped directly from thc orchards
to the market centers in proportion
to the demand of consumption, That
ls wbat I mean by establishing a on?
trol over the distribution itgencich.
Then there would be no glut al one
point and dearth at another, for the
shippers would know what the distribution demands aro at all times."
Everyone  knows  how   to   conduct
hifself so as to get hlnsclf "insulted."

"Thousands of river drivers have been working a month
earlier than usual on the spring drives; thousands more
have just returned with a good stake from a big harvest
of pulpwood; thousands more from the logging camps—
110,000 workers coining and going all the time. Inevitably we find woodh—man—labor—Industry forming one family compact, with bread and butter ln the larder; while oa
the other hand Are—'barrenness—idleness—desertion of industry—hunger and emigration are a synonym. Forest
fires decide the destiny of thousands of Canadians," says
the Canadian Forestry association in a statement lhsued
this Week "In 1923 we had 5,000,000 acres burned. What
will it be in 1927? Do not let us do as the ostrich—bury
our head for safety. The public are responsible for 90
per cent of the fires caused. It is tben high time the public took a hand, for until the individual rtalizes he is responsible, foreht fires will take their annual toll of wages.
The protection services are doing wonderful work, improving tbeir efficiency by leaps and bounds. Are you behind
them? (re you trying to cut down the DO per cent human fire hazard? An awakening of individual responsibility will strengthen, the ranger's hand 90 per cent. Will

-Many of us are actually afraid to succeed. Most of us
ear well fitted for our work being properly prtpared, possessing intellect, talent, love ior our work and the earnest
desire to do (it well.but we lack the supreme gift, self-
confidence, which enable us to make a success of things.
Fear Is a small word with a large meaning. After hearing
the great Mme. Nightingale sing a famous aria, little M'iss
Highvoice feels certain that her voice sounds like a tin
whistle and never wants to sing in public again. Likewise little (Willie Pound-the-Keys hears the wonderful
Maestro Forzando play his new concerto, returns home in
disgust, closes his piano and goes on a vacation. How
easy it is to tforget that hard work for long years, coupled
with talent and great determination, are required to make
a finished artist. How many of us are afraid of the long
years, the hard work and the privations? The meaning
of this message is sim-ily thiis: Love your work and think
it is the most glorious and wonderful thing ta the world.
Be radiant with enthusiasm. Tbese two qualities make
a splendid team and cannot be beaten. Both of these attributes are contagious and will help you and your work
immensely. (
It is generally thought that the first glove contest was
between Jobn L. Sullivan and James J. Corbett ih 1892.
T. S. Andrews, however, says that a French publication
tells of an exhibition at Alx la Ghapelle, France, on October 8,1818, as followh: "Yesterday a great exhibition was
made by English boxers. The two champions were built
like Hercules and were naked to the waist They entered
the place with their hands' guarded with huge padded
gloves. After a severe contest, one of them, more adroit
than his rival, struck him so violent a blow on the breast
that he fell, and victory was thus decided."
Those fellowh who go through life grumbling, saying they have found only hard knocks, are those folks
wha've been looking for hard knocks. You get out of
life what you put in it, and find what you are looking for.
It is the person who looks for the joys and pleasures of
life who finds the bright things, and it Is well for all to
remember that the man who lives witli his head in the
clouds ls the first one who dihcover the silver lining.   "
The old "grad" who had been attending graduation was
reminiscent. "I remember my own school commencement,", he said, and I remember also the words of my
principal. 'Boys,' he said, 'I know you dread a bit going
out on your own. But remember, it's only the first plunge
that's the worst. After that, if you are any good, you'll
like it.' Those were homely words, but t think it stuck
with us fellows as the longer, more finished addresses of
today do not,"
A sight often to be seen in northern Italy in the distilling
season is a carload of ofange flowers and leaves, their
strong aromatic fragrance leaving a long trail of scented
air behind. One way of obtaining the perfume ls by dih
tilling the blossonms with water, and the flowers of the
bitter-fruited orange tree are chiefly used for this purpose.
These smell more strongly and more deliclously than
those of the sweet-fruited "Golden Apple," as the Romans
called it in the Middle ages. Uke so many other things
this deliriously fragrant oil owes its fame to tiie whim of
fahhibn. About the year 1680, when great ladles and their
squires loved strong perfumes, it came into high favor under the patronage of tbe Princess Neroll, and was called
after her, essence de Neroll. Owing to its strong scent,
the .essence of Neroll is of great use. When blended wllth
mixtures, in the complicated perfume Industry. These
"bouquets" are prepared according to the prevailing fashion and taste. The composition of these miqtures is a
closely guarded secret, and their blending lis a singular
art, requiring long experience and special aptitude.

reply. ."I am sure you know that

Some folks have such an exalted notion of their own

td such an extent that they would break if they had to
bend in laughter. To such an one poor, simpe, light-

and innocently asked: "Beg pardon, sir, lout are you anybody in particular?" Such a man could not laugh. He
could only fume and boll inside, until he burst out in complaint to some one. If we really valued things aright,
we should see that very often we ought to let our laughter rise, instead of our complaints and angry passions,
when things do not So our way. A bishop of Oxford
slipped and fell one day. An unctuous confrere leaned

Poems From EasternLands
The distance around the world was. a subject of study
by the ancient Greek mathemathidans. Aristotle says
that mathematicians of his time found that the circumference of the earth was the equivalent of 46,000 miles.
It was Bratosthenes (C. 250 B. c.) who flrst had an acour
ate Idea of the principles of deeterminlng this figure. His
results were inaccurate "uut his wethod was substantially
that which is still employed at the present time. The
dimensions of tho earth which have been very generally
adopted are those of George A. R. Clarke published ln 1866.
We are told that too much sleep may be harmful, deadening the activities of the mind and body. A physician

The sultan of Trengganu was an
adept at excusing himself for his
slight deviations from the paths of
righteousness. At least so it would
appear from the story which Charles
Mayer, his one one-time unofficial
adviser and good friend, telle ln his
recent book on the Malay jungles.
On one of my visits to Trengganu,
he says, I spent several days with
the sultan and discussed his problems with him. He owed a sum of
money, and, knowing that he had
money in the treasury, I asked him
why he did not pay the degt.
He was thoughtful for a t'me.
"Well, I'll tell you," he said at last

Ttie Car Clean
The owner using modern methods
may keephls car looking new all the

than a few moments a day to accomplish this end. For instance, there
are now on the market a number of
liqulld and wax polishes which will
give admirable results lf they are
as dlhected .   i
In the use of   wax   polishes   the
first step ls to clean the body of the
car thoroughly. The polish ls applied to the surface with a piece of
cheese cloth and then another clean
cloth is used to distribute -the- wax
evenly all over the surface. Car
owners com/monly make the mistake
of thinking that the more wax applied the better. As a matter oi
fact a very thin film ls all tehat is
needed. The polish will last' from
four days to a week, and after it has
been applied at the beginning of the
week a little rubbing with a clean
cltoh will bring out the luster again.
The wax polish may be used for the
body, fenders, hood and other lus-

- To keep pace with the improved
appearance of the body'it is necessary to give some attention to the

5onless Father Takes His Boys to Alaska
A bachelor who loves boys but who
has no boys of his own! Thatls
Oeorge E. Buchanan, a wealthy coal
dealer of Detroit, a hard-boiled business man who thinks that the best
possible education a boy can have is
the education of travel. He bas sent
145 boys to Alaska from Detroit and Vancouver via the Canadian Pacific "Princess" Steamers
to Skagway; and now be plans to
not only send a group of hoys to
Alaska the coming year, but he has
enlarged his program and his former
•logan < 'On to Alaska .with Buchanan" has a side-partner. "On to
Europe with Buchanan!" Buchanan
is a Canadian Scotchman who has
prospered wonderfully in Detroit.
Ua will tell you he has made money
there, but—his big Idea is to give the
growing boy a'chance.     Tbe   boy
says, "I'll do It," but Buchanan
knows In his canny Scotch way that
the only thing worth having is the
thing you have to earn. So he says
to the boys: Here's a trip to Alaska,
here's a trip to Europe for you, but
•"No boy, oi man, ever appreciated
or got any benefit out of anything he
did not work or sv/eat for. You earn
one-third of your passage money,
and I will tell you how to do lt as
best I can; you get your parents to
put up another third and I will loan
you the remaining third—and you
can pay lt back to me when you get
rendy, so.that another boy can be
sent to Alaska—or Europe." Every
boy who has mado good his passage
money to Alaska, Is eligible for the
European trip—and the percentage
of "make good" boys has been Terjf
high, according to Buchanan. Of au
these Alaska boys, Buchanan say*
that two-thirds have voluntarily repaid him, although he has merely
put them on honor to da it wben
they got ready—and he forecloses no
legal obligations, because tbere aro
none. Any boy, anywhere in the
United States or Canada, can qualify
for Oeorge E. Buchanan's trip to
Alaska, or to Europe, and can earn
his third anywhere but, of course, ko
should get ln touch with Mr. Buchanan, in Detroit, to learn how to earn
bis third. All of his boys have a
wonderful time, no matter whether
they go to Alaska, or to Europe, and
when tbey finish with him they have
had a business and travel education
worth a whole lot.
