Mr, Cotsworth Thinks Canada Will Some Day Be a
Tropical Country
Moses B. Cotsworth, the eminent
English actuary, who was in Grand
Forks lastSaturday in the capacity of
cneof the civil service grading commission, is also a noted geologist,
and some observations that he made
to the News while'in Nelson, recently are of more than ordinary interest
to every Canadian. Mr. Cotsworth
advanced the theory that owing to
the gradual tilting of the globe by
the great weight of ice on the Atlantic hemisphere, the position of the
north pole is shifting, and the warm
and habitable area of Canada is extending gradually toward tbe Arctic
sea. Mr. Cotsworth holds that at
one time the north pole passed
through the south of Greenland,
there being no counterbalance of ice
on the Asiatic side, and that it
shifted gradually from point to point
with the formation or melting of ice
crust on the surface of the globe.
T.iat it was situated about one-third
b.'tween the present location and
the 80th latitude about .5000 years
ago he has reason to believe from
the form and position of the Egyptian pyramids, which were constructed purely for the purpose of
taking easier calculrtions from the
sun. They were built with a slope
which was always at one angle, so
that from the shadow of the sun it
would be an easy matter to calculate the period of the year, the
month, the week and even the hour
of the day. Mr. Cotworth thinks
t mt there is no surer indication that
the pole is still moving than the
greatglacier at Glacier, B.C., which,
according to the investigation of independent men of science, is receding at the rate of twenty feet yearly.
That Mr. Cotsworth's theory is
reasonable does not require a scient
ist to prove. Miners in the Yukon
have dug up the frozen bones of
mammoths, which could only have
lived there when the climate was
semi-tropical. Great coal beds have
been Jound in northern countries,
beds that could only have been
formed when the rank vegetation of
the carboniferous age flourished in
the Turkish*bath atmosphere of the
pre-glacial epoch. 'I'he prototype of
thc great fossils could not have
(lourished in the stunting cold of
Arctic winters. In addition to this
the pioneers of the prairie provinces
will tell you that tho climate of
Manitoba, Saskatchewan aud Alberta is warmer today than it was
thirty or forty years ago. Then it
was almost im possible to grow wheat
that would escape frost in districts
where summer .frosts are now rarely
known. Much no doubt is due to
thc cultivation of the land, which
renders the soil porous, so that it retains the heat of the day, and radiates it through the night; but this
cannot account for the fact that the
basins of the Peace and Mackenzie
rivers, years ago regarded as little
better than an Arctic wilderness, are
now in places inhabited by settlers
who grow hard, red wheat from Ed
inonton 700 miles north, while the
farmer is driving tbe fur trader from
th o shores of the Lesser Sl,ive lake.
Nortli of that again indefinitely cattle can be raised, and potatoes and
vegetables Jnd o-its can be grown.
This northward movement of the
temperate zone must mean that in
years to come Canada will be settled
by a white people from the international boundary to lhe shores of the
Arctic sea. In the far north settlement will be more and more scattered, as it will require a larger area
to sustain life in the short summers,
but some settlement there will almost surely be, and the great mineral wealth of the Mackenzie river,
of which we have heard but faint
reports as yet, will, as it becomes developed, most surely mean the establishment of large camps along the
course of that great artery. All this
will call for the construction of new
railways, because plentiful aH the
waterways are in tbe north, they can
only be used for a portion of each
year. This in turn will mean vast
expenditure of capital, so that Canada before this century closes will
become, if it is not now, the greatest
field of investment in the world.
Prince Rupert and Edmonton and
the cities of the north will profit by
these great new openings, and the
south will also glean its share of their
wealth. With all this in view, Canadians may well rejoice that nature
herself conspires with the march of
events to number their country
among the great nations that are yet
to be.—Revelstoke Mail-Herald.
Annual Garden Party Was
a Successful and Enjoyable Event
Varied Program
The management of the Spokane
Interstate fair has arranged for more
variety in the entire program this
year than was attained even last
year. To this end, vaudeville and
circus attractions have been secured
such as are seldom seen in theatre or
circus, Amusement and instruction
seem to be equally balanced features
of this year's fair. To show the people of the Inland Empire what other
districts are doing, exhibits from far
and wide have been arranged for.
The management, in fact, has apparently decided that the ranchers,
stockmen and manufacturers of the
Inland Empire are able to compete
with the best in the world, and the
world, or as much of it as may be
reached, is invited to show its products at Spokane. .Money has lieen
spent to advantage this year. There
is a better racetrack; there are better
accommodations for exhibitors, and
for visitors. There will be the best
race program ever seen in the northwest—harness and running events,
with a new feature in the former, a
handicap trot and pace. The full
program may be obtained by writing to Robert II. Cosgrove, secretary
of tho Spokane Interstate fair.
Greenwood Strike Settled
The Greenwood Miners' union, at
a meeting held Inst Saturday night,
ratified the settlement of the strike
arrived at between a committee of
the union and E. G. Warren, representing the British Columbia Copper
company. At 7 o'clock last Monday morning the Mother Lode smelter whistle blew for the first time
last May. During the week men
have been put on at the Mother
Lode mine, principally the old employees. The old shift bosses, it is
Baid, will take their old places as
work gets under way. The terms of
the settlement are reported to be satisfactory to both parties.
The annual garden party under
the auspices of the ladies of Holy
Trinity church was held on the large
lawn ut Mr. J. B. Henderson's residence, Winnipeg avenue, on Thursday evening, and proved a financial
success, as well as a social attraction. The attendance was quite
liberal, and it is estimated that tbe
ladies netted between $70 and SS0.
Numerous gaily decorated booths,
where all sorts of refreshments were
dispensed, dotted the spacious
grounds, and under tbe glare of numerous electric lights and Chinese
lanterns, the scene was quite picturesque. An enjoyable feature of the
affair was the rendition of a musical
program by local talent. All the
numbers were well received. The
ladies who directed the entertainment are to be complimented on the
splendid success they achieved.
The 0. P. R. has completed the
location of the line for the spur from
Hartford Junction to the British
Columbia Copper company's Lone
Star mine near Danville. The line
will be about twelve miles long and
is estimated to cost $300,000. Construction will begin as coon as the
plans are approved by the division
ollicers at Nelson.
The report, which was widely civ
culated about a year ago, to the effect that the C.P.R. intended to electrify its lines of the Boundary division, has been revived by Lome A.
Campbell, manager of the West
Kootenay Power & Light company.

An Explanation
Colin Campbell, Grand   Forks, B.
C.—Dear.Sir:    It has come to  my
ears   that   some   parties   iu (irand
Forks   are   connecting  the    Kettle
River and South Okanagan Pioneers'
association   with   an    "old-timers'
picnic" held at Newby lake on   Dominion,   at   which some one   was
prosecuted   for     violation   of    the
Liquor License Aet.     I   can   assure
you, as secretary of tin' Kettle River
and South Okanagan Pioneers' asso-
: ciation, that   this organization  has
j had nothing whatever to do with the
so-called   "old-timers'   picnic,"   of
which I had   not even heard until a
couple   of   days   ago.    The  Kettle
River and South Okanagan Pioneers'
association   meet  only once a year,
generally about the middle of September.   This year the  meeting will
I be held in Fairview, where we hope
to   see   Boundary old-timers   well
represented.    In addition to the annual dinner and reunion   for   social
intercourse, the object of the associa-
| tion is benevolence and   the  collec
j tion of authentic historical data connected with the early settlement of
the district.   Being only human, we
j possibly   have  our   little  faults in
common with thc rest of humanity;
but we are not to be held responsible
for the actions of others,  no  matter
by what name they may call themselves. A. Meiiiiaw,
Sec. K. R.&S. O. P. A.
Hedley, B.C., July 22, 1009.
New Foods From Asia
Two new vegetables forthe kitchen
garden, a giant radish and a cabbage
from Brobdignag, have recently
been introduced into this country by
our agricultural explorers. They
are remarkable not only in size, but
for excellence of flavor, and will be
heartily welcomed as palatable additions to our bill of fare.
The radish in question conies from
Japan, where it is known as "sakur-
jima." it attains a length of two
feet or more, aud sometimes a circumference eepial to that of a man's
thigh. Although the seed is not
planted until the middle of the.summer, the vegetable grows with wonderful rapidity, and early in autumn
[is ready for the table.
The American government plant
t bureau recommends this vegetable
iiu the highest terms. It ought be-
'. fore long to be in every kitchen garden; and there is no reason why it
should not be widely planted, inas-
1 much as the seeds are already to be
; obtained from sonic seedsmen. The
huge radish will keep all winter 111 n
cool cellar. It may be cooked like
1 turnips and beets, or cut into little
squares or strips, and served like ordinary radishes.
As for the giant cabbage, it comes
j from China, and is quite as remarkable in its way as the radish. It attains a weight of forty pounds, nnd
I possesses so line a llavor that cabbages of the kind to which we are
accustomed must be regarded as
'poor things, relatively speaking.
This remarkable vegetable from the
j Flowery Laud has a much more deli
I cate taste than ordinary cabbages,
I with less of thc crude "cabbagy" in-
[tensity, A-hich many folks lind objectionable.

Cancer Defined
According te the experts on c.uicor
of the medical faculty of Columbia
university, lhat dreaded disease is
neither contagious uor infectious. As
one of them expressed it, "you could
breathe cancel', wallow in cancer, handle cancer with cut hands and not be
in the least danger of contracting the
disease, simply because cancer is not a
goriii disease,"
Shorn of every scientific term, or,
as one ot the experts saitl, expressed
ill "primary grade" English that the
must unlearned may comprehend, the
following is what cancel is:
One of the myriad cells of which
our tissues are composed fails to grow
normally. Jt is either too large or too
small. This abnormality of size pushes
other cells around it out of plumb.
These misplaced cells conglomerate
into a mass of cells that, by reason of
their abnormality, fail tu receive proper nourishment. This lack of nourishment causes these abnormal cells to
decay, thus forming a tumor or cancer,
These abnormal cells, as they multiply,will go on knocking normally growing cells out uf position, and us soon
as this occurs these normal cells also
become abnormal and begin to decay.
This process will continue at an ever
accelerating rate, the decayed part
growing and growing until the patient
becomes so weak from thu burden that
he (lies.
There is only one effeotive treatment so far devised—cut the tumor uc*
cancer out as soon as possible after it
is discovered. Nothing else will stop
the decay of cells. Cancers have lung
spreading roots. Every bit of this rout
must be cut out or the misplaced cells
will begin growing faultily again and
the cancer will reappear. If every bit
of the root is extracted there is no
likelihood of the reappearance of the
Because of the "ethics of the profession" the experts who imparted the
information on cancer declined to permit the use of their names.

1 venue. A Clean Man
Outside cleanliness is lets than half the battle. A man may
scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, aad
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is ?lean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or blood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stomachs. Blood diseases are found where there is unclean blood.
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevent! these diseases. It make. ■ man's Insides clean
and healthy. It cleans the digestive organs, makes pur*,
clean blood, and clean, healthy flesh.
It restores tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration.   It contains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation is the most unclean unclcanliness. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure it.   They never gripe.   Easy to take as candy.

Verses 12-13—What is the dominant note today between officials of
the church and the pastor, is it official
and business, or is it spiritual, that

Do ministers as a class "labor" as
hard, and suffer as their Master did,
and thus compel the tender love and
esteem of the ehureh?
Docs the average minister or not,
actually "labor" as hard as the average mechanic, farmer, business or professional man, and practise as much
self-denial as these?
What is generally the real character of those who will not support the
church because they do not like the
What is the only way by which to

Verse 14—If you know anything
against a fellow Christian what is
the right thing to do, (1) say nothing
agout it; (2) talk about it  to others,
(3) correct hiin in the presence of
others, or (4) see him alone anil in
love tell him what yon   have  to   say?

people in their bodies, their souls,

Is it your duty, as a Christian, to
take pains to "comfort" everybody
with whom you come in contact, and
if you aro so doing, what is the effect

dog on my sheep, pulls down my
fences in the night, shoois my chicken
when one gets in his yard, is constantly slandering me and my family,
and will not pay me a long-standing
just debt, what would Jesus do if he
were II (This question must be
answered in writing by members of
the club.)
Verse 16—It is easy, Paul, for you
to say, "Rejoice evermore," but is it
practical for ordinary mortals, and if
so, how?
Verse 17—If a man is really in love,
with God aud his fellows, does he not
necessarily pray all the time, either
consciously or unconsciously?
Is it necessury, or helpful, to have
set times for conscious prayer?
Verse Iti—-Are we to be thankful
alike for pain and pleasure, for loss
and gain, for enemies and friends, if
we are "in Christ Jesus?"
Is it not an actual fact, based on
