The Jolly Prince
Prince Carol of Bouroania, during
! his recent visit to tbe United States,
told   tbe   reporters   that he was a
democrat.   The   Prince of   Wales,'
wbose memorable visit preceded that
of tbe Roumanian heir, did not assert his democracy quite so definitely in words; but he made it none the
less clear. Yet even tbe gay, good-
humored,   winning  frankness  and
friendliness of his behavior in this
country scarcely prepares  a reader
of the recently published narrative
of his voyage to Australia fori the
prince's   part  in  the time honored
nautical ceremony of crossing  the
line.   Times have changed, indeed,
when   such   liberties can be taken
witb   royalty   in  person,   wtthont
punishment or rebuke.    In tbe old
days, any audacious miscreant who
so  flouted   majesty would  surely
bave been hanged, drawn  or quartered!
When, on April 17, the Renown
crossed the line Father Neptune
came aboard, attended by bis secretary and two effectively costumed
polar bears. The next morning, witb
trident in hand and with beard
flowing-over bis chest, the sovereign
of the seas held full court on board
ship, and conducted an investiture
of honors. Upon Admiral Sir Lionel
Halsey was conferred the Order of
tbe Oid Sea Dog, and Captain Dudley North became Knight of the
Aged Cod. Tbe proceedings, formally carried out according to program,
were in rime throughout; and when
it came to the turn of the Prince of,
Wales.be recited a merry little verse]
of his own composition. Nor did he
seek to avoid the utmost rigor of the
ordeal prescribed custom for voyagers crossing the line for tbe first
time.      '
Forewarned, be was fully pre-,
pared and met it gayly, attired in]
tbe unroyal costume of canvas shirt
and short breeches aod no shoes or
stockings. He took his place id a
chair placed immediately in front
of a canvas bathtub, rigged up by
tbe sailors for tbe occasion; tben,
under the orders of Father Neptune,
the bears took bim inexorably in
hand; * -.
He  was first given a huge and
nasty  bill;   next  he  was lathered
pink, white and blaok; then be was'
shaved; then   he was tipped  suddenly   backward into the bathtub
and ducked tbree times three.   The
ferocious chief  bear,  during  this
ordeal, urged bis assistants  to execute  their' duty   to the limit, impressively reciting, above the laughing and spluttering prince,  these
vigorous if unclassio lines-
Shave him and hash him,
Duck him and splash him,
Torture and smash him,
And don't let him gol
When tbe  nine dockings  were
completed and the viotim   was at

7 he Trench
of Bayonets
The bayonets still protrude through
the sod under which the soldiers stand
buried. That   is the striking thing
about perhaps the most remarkable
memorial of the war—a trench on the
French front between Thiaumont and
Donaumont tbat was occupied by the
third company of the 137th regiment.
According* to one story, a shell   exploded on the parapet and buried the
men alive as they   stood.   According
to another story, the   Germans   took
the   trench,   crumbled    and    shat
tered by   ahell   fire, after all its defenders were either wounded or killed,
and then hurriedly filled it in, and to
mark the spot left tbe guns   of   the
dead soldiers upright beside them.
Whichever story is true, the bayonet trench dramatically shows how
heroic was the defense of Verdun. An
American, George F. Rand, was so
much moved by the sight that he
built over the trench a monument to
perpetuate the memoryof the brave
poilns buried below. That monument
was dedicated last December witb appropriate ceremonies.

Victoria, April 1.—The liquor
bill was passed by tbe legislature
yesterday. Although no date has
yet been set, it is expected that it
will fio into edict on Miy I. Unde r
the measure, the government will
establish and maintain stores wherever in tbe province it is thought
advisable, and at tbese sales will be
made under permit system and only
sealed packages of liquor will be sold
A package is defined to mean any
receptacle used for holding liquor.
Tbe beerclausa is dead. In spite
of repeated attempt? on tbe part of
he friends of th e famous m ill beverage, the death-blow was struck
yesterday afternoon, wben tbe Uphill amendment calling for a full-
strength beer was defeated by tbe
overwhelming majority of 34 to 11.
Right up to tbe last a strenuous
fight for life was made, although for
upwards of two weeks oven tbe firmest advocates had little hope,
The administration of the act, including the general control, management and supervision of all government stores, will be vested in a
liquor control board consisting of
three persons, one of wbom sball
be chairman. Most of tbe powers of
tbis board will be subjected to tbe
lieutenant-governor in council, but
in the purely administrative end it
will bave certain rights.
Under tbe permit system residents
of tbe province of adult age, and
wbo bave resided here for one
month, can take out yearly permits,
the cost of wbicb sball be f 5 eacb.
Another permit cost ng 50 cents,
allows for a single purchase limited
to two quarts. There are special
permits governing tbe cases of druggists, pbysicians.dentistB and veteri-
naries and also affecting wines far
sacramental purposes.
The act provides for a tax on all
liquor imported for private use under tbe federal law.
Tbis tax will be equal to tbe profit
wbicb tbo government would bave
made bad it sold such liquor, plus
10 per cent. It will be incumbent
on all tbose importing ior private
purposes to notify the liquor control board of any shipments, so that
provision may be made for taxation.
Another taxation provision is contained in tbe act. Every person
engaged in importing liquor into tbe
province or exporting it from tbe
province, sball pay a yearly license
fee of 83000.
There are safeguards to prevent
tbe abuse of tbe permit system.
Persons convicted of drunkenness
can be interdicted and bave their
permits cancelled. Tbere are heavy
penalties attaching to tbose wbo
violate tbe law by selling liquor,
an individual being subjected to imprisonment for six months with bard
labor for a first offense and a corporation being subject to a minimum fine of $1000.
Under tbe act all private stocks
of liquor must carrv the government
seal, the object being to prevent

The provincial legislature yesterday succeed
ed in passing a liquor control act that should
give the government almost absolute control
of the liquor traffic in British Columbia. If
the act is rigidly enforced, the majority of the
people will be getting exactly what they voted
for last October; if it isn't enforced, in all
probability the people will have something to
say to the government.
On life's highway almost everybody is
ing to take the rich man's dust.
The Union of British Columbia Municipali
ties is making an unwarranted amount of
noise at Victoria. After being on a drunken
spending spree with borrowed for years, some
of the cities and towns in this province have
about reached their limit, and now they want
the government to give them a fresh start
Their request is very modest. They only want
the government to levy a special tax and to
collect it for them. The people are taxed to
the limit already, and any further advance
made that direction would result in adding co
lhe ranks of the radical element only.
A man shouldn't be discouraged because he is
unable to convince his wife that she is wrong.
With all his wisdom, Solomon uever did any*
thing like that.
A Swiss bottling firm is using Austrian
one-crown bills for labels. As an Austrian
paper crown is worth only about a quarter of
a cent, and as printed labels would cost more,
the firm finds the system to the good qusiness.
Moreover, the people eagerly collect the bank
note labels in the hope that the crown will
rise in value.
It is currently rumored that as a consequence
of thc drop in the cost of lumber the price of
board will also be lowered.
One of the most dangerous seasons of the
year "n regard to forest fires is now approaching, and it behooves all who go into the forest
on any business to be careful with fire. When
the snow leaves the forest, last year's leaves,
grass and twigs are left as dry as tinder, and
a lighted match or cigarette stub thrown down
carelessly falls into material as inflammable as
a barrel of shavings. After the spring rains
come on and the new grass and new foliage
starts the danger is greatly reduced. People
do not realize that just at the close of winter,
through which there is scarcely any danger
from fire in the woods, comes on the most dangerous season. Care by all who go into the
woods at this time a means great reduction in
the fire-hazard.
Gypsum, or hydrated sulphate of calcium,
is one of the important non-metallic minerals
of Canada. It is found in all the provinces,
with the exception of Prince Edward Island,
in one or more of its three forms—selenite, a
crystalized variety; satin spar, a fibrous variety, consisting of long silky crystals, and alabaster, a fine-grained white variety. Gypsum
occurs in beds, often of great thickness, and is
usually mined by the open quarry method,
after which it is crushed to the degree of fineness necessary for the product for which it is
required. The pridcipal uses for gypsum are
as wall plaster and in the manufacture of plaster of paris., For these products gypsum, after
being finely powdered, is calcined, or heated to
drive off the moisture. It possesses the valuable property of being able to absorb moisture
again. This permits of it bespread or moulded
when in a wet state and of quickly hardening.
As plaster of paris it is used for a variety of
purposes, such as plaster finish coat, for
mouldings and patterns and for casts of art
objects. In the making of cold water paints it
supplies the body that carries the color; kalso
forms the base for paris green and other in
secticides. For fireproofing safes, etc., calcined
gypsum is used between the metal walls.
Moulds for casting babbit metal, for making
rubber stamps, hat blocks, etc., are made of
gypsum, while the finest grade of plaster of
paris is used for surgical casts and in dentistry
for taking impressions for plate work. It is
occasionally used as a filler in the manufacture
of textiles and paper, and in asbestos wall-
board and pipe and boiler covering. In the
making of portland cement gypsum is used as
an ingredient for the purpose of regulating
the period of setting. As a fertilizer, gypsum
has long been used, either alone, when it is
known as land plaster, or as an ingredient of
many artificial fertilizers. It has the property
of liberating plant food in the soil. New uses
are constantly being found for this adaptable
mineral, and the revival of the building industry will no doubt result in an increased production. In 1920 429,144 tons were mined, of
a value of $1,876,595.
The world may owe every man a living, but
it takes a hustler to collect it.
A simple means of eradicating
weeds, but one said to be effective,
bas been devised* by Mr. Van Batten, of Cbeney, Wasb. It consists
of a square steel rod some twelve
feet long, which is so geared to a
strong steel wheel that as the machine is drawn through the field the
rod revolves in tbe opposite direction far enougb below the surface of
the soil to destroy the root system
of tbe weeds. It is claimed tbat
tbis rod turning over <nd over below the surface not only destroys
tbe weeds but prevents tbe packing
of tbe* ground and leaves behind a
loose covering of earth that serves as
a moisture-saving mulch.
Automobiles are reported to be

of the high price of paint and labor.    Now,

Kaslo on
It is an old atory now how tha
pioneers who fint went to California
and Alaska in search of gold were
disappointed and angry that unlimited nuggets were not everywhere
to hand. Yet men have since found
in both these places nature held in
her hand a far bigger, even if a different, reward than any they had
"staked out" for themselves. Opportunity ls everywhere. But it is undoubtedly true that at the present
moment Canada is the full-section
on nature's world-map; offering the
largest and most obvious opportunities to settler and investor. A horn
of plenty is Kaslo on Kootenay, in
British Columbia. In pioneer days
men came to Kaslo as to California
and afterwards to Alaska possessed
with but one idea and that to mine.
Nature cognizant of her many cards
of opportunity smiled indulgently
upon them and handed out the
Kaslo-Slocan, admittedly one of the
richest mineral regions in all Canada. To-day a score of mining companies, some of them with fanciful and romantic names: "Ruth,"
"Lucky Jim," "Queen Bess," "Rambler-Cariboo," etc., attest the quality
and richness of the ore. Soon after
this nature began to unfold her own
plans. She walked into every miner's
shack with her world-map and a revolving globe, and began to point
out and emphasize Kaslo and Kaslo
opportunities other than mining.
The town was built and incorporated
in 1893. The first incorporated city
in the Kootenays.
A beautiful spot is Kaslo.
All who know Switzerland are
struck by its resemblance to picturesque Lucerne. Indeed even the
guide-books now call Kaslo "The Lucerne of America." And is there
good fishing in the lake ? An afternoon of trolling at the mouth of
Campbell's Creek ls an afternoon to
remember. Especially if you build
a fire of driftwood on the beach over
which to ,fry your trout and hang
your camp-kettle for ten.
In urging a town for this section
nature very well understood she w«8
«**)*: .•/
the Kootenay Lake, in British
urging . . . homes. "See." said
she, "all you will have to do will
be to bring saws and axes along to
cut your lumber right here." And
the pioneers took their saw.' in hand
und built their houses, but it remained for 1021, urged by the great
hue and cry everywhere going up for
wood, to convert Kaslo into a really
great lumber centre.   Which is be-
ig done as fast as lumberman can
blaze and fell.
From the very edge of the lake
virgin forest stretches out and away
apparently without limit, but up till
this year little had been done here
in the way of serious lumbering on a
large scale. "But now," as one old-
timer puts it, "Kaslo is lumbering
up with 'sticks' fast."
The biggest opportunity afforded
of nature at Kaslo however, lies in
the richness of the soil for agricultural purposes and the suitability of
the climate for fruit growing. In
the last few years Kaslo has become
a very Garden of Eden for apples.
As you walk the streets every adjoining garden shows trees with
fruit. The yard of the little Methodist church is a very bower of rosy
apples. The apple orchards at Kaslo
have made women and children unconscious of remoteness; they have
pushed the wilderness back and
away from Mirror Lake, Twin Bay
and Shutty's Bench so that here are
seen the most imposing and cosiest
homes outside of the town itself.
The marketing of this delicious
Kaslo fruit—these Spies, Kings and
Gravensteins—is a romantic tale of
successful commerce. As far as
transportation goes, Kaslo ia by no
means remote. The C. P. R. operates fine lake steamers with luxurious passenger accommodation and
ample freight room to and from Nelson two or three times a week, in
addition to a" line of railroad out of
Kaslo to Nakusp where it links up
with the Arrowhead Lakes system to
Revelstoke on the main line across
continent. So that from Kaslo to
the prairie markets and even to the
appreciative markets of England h
but a step. The Kaslo apple travels
abroad with tho jitmost confidence,
armed with the highest of agricultural passports: the Royal Hortic
oultural Society's coveted medals.
As a local grower says, fingering a
largo Gravei-stein, "Kaslo fruit
keeps so well you can do anything
with it. There s no world market so
distant but a Kaslo apple would live
to get there in good condition."
It would seem that the hillsides
and bench-lands of this Kaslo section are a specially favored corner of
nature's earth-garden because she
herself gives it her own personal
attention. She even sprays it herself and has no uso hero for th*
artificial irrigation she so strongly
advocutes for many another section.
Kaslo enjoys just the right degree of
moisture and just the right decree
of dryness and sunshine to bring our
fruit and vegetables to perfection	
Kaslo resembles Quebec.   All who
know Quebec know   the   river   and
mountain views from the windows of '
thc Chateau Frontenac and the Duf- ■
ferin Terrace, so all who know Kalso
are carried away by the beauty and
grandeur of the Kootenay   with  ita ;
fringing peaks.    By the  wonderful-:
lights playing upon them; especially
when touched by the feathery wand
of the first snowfall, but all do not ;
realize that  nature  throws on  tha
screen   here   forty   miles of these
peaks without a break or that shs
pinnacles many of them at a height
of no less than eight to nine thousand feet.
A number of good roads trail up
the valleys between those peakB but
many of them are still unshackled of ;
paths and will be for all timo, '
Nevertheless tha automobile roads
radiate in every direction for many
miles and will scon lip!: up Kaslo
with all thc centres of Tho Lake District.
But "the Peaks of the PurccllV

A Novel Pumping Plant
The Scientific American says that
a Los Angeles inventor has utilized
the principle of the old river ferryboat in a plant for pumping water
from a stream. The contrivance consists of two parallel sweeps fourteen
feet in length, attached to a reciprocating beam firmly anchored in the
ground. The down-stream ends of
the eweeps connect witb sixteen
vertical paddles arranged in two
parallel rows in a suitable framework. The paddles are pivoted and
have an angular movement of about
forty-five degrees. The pressure of
the current against the paddles
swings the sweeps across the river,
where the angle of the paddles is
automatically reversed.   Thus the

' With a population of less than
two Demons to the square mile compared to England's six hundred,
With only five par cent of her rich
agricultural land ln the West under
cultivation, with a beavs national
indebtedness and only a few people
to pay the interest in the form of
taxes, the reason why Canada Is
hungry for immigrants can readily
be understood. Immigration ia the
human rain without whicb Canada
muat parch and wither up.
If Great Britain had a large surplus of farmers and farm hands,
Canada might not have to invite immigrants from any otber source. But
Great Britain Is not so much an
agricultural as a merchant and
manufacturing centre, and every
year grudges more and more the
farmers or farm hands who leave
ber Colonies for tbe Dominions. She
is quite willing to send out countless
city folk in the hope that the; may
be transformed into farmers In their
new environment, but she has fewer
farmers to spare than many other
countries from whicb Canada in the
past has drawn excellent settlers.
This is illustrated by the homestead
entries. From 1897 to 1919, only
eighteen per cent of the British immigrants made entry for homesteads
in Western Canada as compared to
twenty-seven par cent, of the American immigrants and twenty-nine per
cent of the foreign born from Con'
tinental Europe.
In certain parts of Europe where
there is a genuine land hunger, there
Is not enough land to go round. Five
or six acres per family Is all tbe land
available in certain parts of Belgium,
and even on that the thrifty Belgian
frequently brings up a family of ten.
The great immigration of Ukrainians from Central Europe whicb has
given Canada nearly 300,000 of her
Western farm population was due to
the constant subdivision of farms
whicb were only fifteen acres to
start with. These Ukrainians bave
become a great asset to Canada, and
have at their own expense erected
four large colleges for higher education. Then again we owe our fine
stock of seventy thousand Scandinavian settlers to the lack of sufficient land to Sweden. Norway,
Denmark and Iceland.
