Merrill, of Los Angeles, president of the Hedley Gold Mining  company, is as follows:  During the.past year everything at .the mine and mill has  gone along fairly avoII. I think  AAre have opened about as much  neAv ore as has been extracted,  but am disappointed in the  grade of this - neAV ore. , The  average grade of our reserve is  now about $9 per ton. We plan  -to do considerable development  this year at the mine, and hope  to open more Higher, grade ore.  The mill construction is completed. The continuation of  the Avar has kept our operating  costs very high," and Ave Avill be  forced to" mine a. little higher,,  grado of ore,than the mine  average untiF-������upplies; etc., get  back to about normal again.   ,  ���������superintendent's repokt.  Gomer P. Jones, general superintendent, reports: For the  year ending December 31, 1916,  your mill at Hedley, B. C, lias  treated 73,491 tons of ore, all  mined from the Nickel Plate  property, but very littlo do-  \*elopment Avork other than the  opening up of ore bodies witliin  already estimated boundaries  has been done. This work Avas  necesary so that a moreanii'orm  grade of ore could be maintained, la doing this it was  proven that in some sections  our estimate of reserve in 1915  report was beloAv the actual  tonnage available, Avhile in  other sections it was greater,  consequently our estimate of  tonnage in this report hasbeeh  revised. '"���������*-  .  The main reason for the small  amount of development shown  was the excessive cost of material and labor due to Avar conditions, and should these con  ditions continue during 1917,  the intention is to open up sections of the property Avhere pay  ore is knoAvn to exist, and by  this means Ave hope to prove up  the Sunnyside Nos. 1, 2 and ������  and the country adjacent to the  Nickel Plate Avithout interfering Avith the surplus, as these  properties will produce enough  ore to pay the development expense, Avhile there is promise  of other ore bodies being discovered.  The development for the year  has proven payable ore to exist  to the extreme limit of the  workings, drifts and drill holes,  and Ave see no indications of  discontinuance of the main ore  chutes.  The estimated tonnage of reserve ore is as follows: 311,400  tons of $9.41 ore; .87,650 tons of  $6 ore. Of this 100,000 tons will  mine better than $10.  Development for tho year:  Drifting...  355ft.  Sinking     60 ft.  Raising.....     90 ft.  Crosscutting  535 ft.  Diamond drilling.3605 ft.  Tho mill has changed over., so  that cyanide  precedes  concentration.   This   has  been   made  necessary,   as   the  freight  and  treatment cost per ton of ore  milledrAvas unusually high, duo  to the -increased quantity of  concentrate, high freight'rate  and loss on gold. By the new  system the greater part of the  gold will be paid for at $20.67���������  a gain-of $1.17 per ounce over  the |former arrangement. The  concentrate shipped will be of  less value, consequently Will  take a lo\Arer freight rate.  The mill, as arranged is most  modern, and Avill permit of a  surplus being made Avith a  lower grade ore than formerly,  and a greater surplus with pre  of the same grade as now; Avith  normal conditions prevailing  the advantage should be very  noticeable.  " The mill equipment and both  hydro-electric - plants, steam  auxiliary, trarnwciys and all  other machinery and plant  are in good Avorking order and  should need but little repair for  some time to come.  treasurer's report.

There were 73,191  tons of ore treated during 1916,  of an average value of $10.65 a  ton, giving a recovery at the  mill of $711,997.41, at tin expenditure of $463,379.83, and net  profits of $248,479.83.

But  rabbits are not now nearly so cheap  as they were before the war. The demand for meat of any kind has raised the price- Thc supply, however, is  almost inexhaustible, and since refrigeration and canning have been undertaken ott a large scale rabbit flesh  has become an important item in the  food supply of the'world.

They immediately alter thc stomachic conditions under which thc worms subsist and  drive them from thc system, and, at  thc. same time, they are tonical in  their effect upon the.digestive organs,  restoring them to healthful operation  and ensuring immunity from further  disorelcrs from such a cause.  The Beauty of a Clear Skin.���������The  condition of the liver regulates thc  condition of the blood. A disordered  liver causes impurities in the blood  and these show themselves in blemishes on the skin. Parmclee's Vegetable Pills in acting upon the liver  act upon the blood and a clear,  healthy skin will follow intelligent  use of this standard medicine.

Conditions  in   the    farm  homes arc improving.    All  too often  the farmer has bought new machinery  and implements  to lighten  his work,  forgetting about thc ceaseless toil .of  his   wife.    Too  often,  also,   has    the  barn been a model of handincss while  the house was^ anything    but    such.  Many a-man had running water in his  pig pen while the only running water  in_ the   house,   where   his   wife  toiled  without  ceasing,.was    in    thc    attic  where the roof, leaked and the   water  soaked  through  and  spoiled   thc  pa-  'per in the front room-    Thc woman  on the farm    deserves    conveniences  and  she is  gradually getting    them.

Wc shall have achieved a negative  success;* but we must aim at something higher,1 a more positive success.

'-.������������������-      ,- ���������  In an area of 350 miles of arid,-bar-  ren desert iif Chile lies the nerve centre of the great war. If an unfriendly power had held control of this desert tract, the war would have ended  long ago with thc crushing of the  Entente Allies. It is thc famous  Chilean nitrate region.  Wiliam Howard Russell, a famous  English war correspondent, wrote as  long ago as 1S89: "Without British  control of thc sodium nitrates of  Chile thc-inap of the world would be  very different today."  Germany how docs not need to depend upon the Chilean nitrate deposits, for the German chemists are  making synthetic nitrogen. However, for six months before the outbreak of the war in 1914 Germany had  been receiving enormous shipments  of sodium nitrate from Chile. It is  estimated, in. fact, that Germany had  on hand 1 million tons of nitrate in  August, 1914.  * Some engineers say there is enough  nitrate in thc Chilean desert to .supply the world for two hundred years.  There arc about fifty thousand Chileans employed' in the: industry. Nothing grows in the region about the nitrate deposits; it is a dead land. To  air appearances the Chilean nitrate  towns arc like the old time Western  American mining camps. A- great  deal of liquor is consumed in the districts and consequently there is considerable lawlessness.  North and Harvey, two 'British'adventurers,--originally owned the nitrate concessions, but now the Chilean government controls most of the  valuable tract. Chile" fought a war  with Peru for the northernmost part  of the nitrate beds and won. The  British, through their financial  strength, exercise thc greatest control of any foreign power over thc  fields, though three German brokerage houses were big producers before  the war. ��������� ���������  \  TKB  L  Maple leap  RUBBER ���������������"���������;���������,  "JACQUES CARTIEa'  "MERCHANTS"    -  "MAPLE LEAF"    -  - "GRANBY"  - "DAISY"  "DOMINION*9  it* as  v-vjurtj  LIMITED -  largest Manufacturers of fiubber Goods in the British Empire  EXECUTIVE OFFICES   - ' MONTREAL, P.Q.

Lack of Tonnage and Loss of Vessels Alarming Fish Exporters  Newfoundland's fish exporter's are  disturbed over the difficulty of obtaining enough vessels to ' market  their product this year. The fisheries constitute the main industry of  the colony,, and in normal times a  large fleet of schooners and small  steamers is engaged throughout the  autumn and winter in carrying to  Europe and South America fish  caught^ in thc spring and summer  and cured by being pickled and dried  in the sun. The vessels trading principally with Portugal and Spain, Italy and Greece, bring back cargoes  of salt  from  Sicily and  Spain.  Until recently the war has not seriously interfered with this trade except for a temporary shutting off of  the Greek market by the Entente  blockade. Since Jan. 1, however, six  fish-carrying vessels have been torpedoed off the Portuguese coast and  in thc Mediterranea-n. Fishing  agencies here have purchased all vcs_  sels  at  present  available,  but  as  thc  British admiralty    has    requisitioned I Dtrna.  Thc unpopularity of the Russo<������  Japanese war led to an insistent demand from the Liberal .and Revolutionary leaders in Russia for a "Constituent Assembly," which.should .replace thc hated bureaucratic regime  by democratic institutions, and the  Duma was the "sop to public opinion-". It has had a checkered career,  but, despite the continued opposition  of .the Czar and his followers, it has  forced itself on the administration,  until'it has become a vital factor in  the administration of the affairs . of  the Empire.  Its short history has been characterized by imprisonments of its lead- '  ers of the more radical sections, and  assassinations of leading bureaucrats.  The first Duma was opened in 1906.  It lasted only a few days, .when it  was dissolved by M- Gorernykin, tho  leader of the Czar's government. The  house wa3 opened again the. following year, and, to soothe the demands  of the members, Mr. Stolypin, the  then leader of the government, promised all kinds of reforms; but minor  revolutions were the sequence, of  much disappointment on the part ol  the various parties    composing    tho  "Now, if you have it in your head,"  said the professor, Who had explained a theory to his students, "you  have it all in a nutshell."  e'3'ct-c**'***'"**^^ ffl~y*r.  many steamers formerly used in the  trade there is a growing shortage of  tonnage.  The trade will require at least 35,-  000 tons of salt to cure this year's  catch of fish. Thus far only enough  ships have been secured to bring in  9,000 tons.

C  Flying To-day  Is Too Easy  Stormy Times in Abyssinia {Britain's Financial  Achievements  Half of the Accidents are the Result  of too  ITach Assurance  Flying has become so safe and  easy that in peace time everyone who  can should take it up as a  means  of  travel and recreation,    according    lo       General   U.  S.  Brancker, Director  of j ViCrc  K-*'|]ecl  Air  Organization     for     the    British  army.  ___ "Flying  today    is  so     easy,''    said  General   Brancker,  "that  most  pupils  arc  in  danger from  over-confidence.  Half our accidents arise from this  cause. Training in aviation from  the military point of view is getting  more and more complicated, but actual flying from the practical poin.l  of view of gelling from place to place  has become almost as easy and safe  as atitomobiling or bicycling.  "People generally ought lo learn  the elementary principles of handling  an airplane. The only factor against  general private use of airplanes, especially in Great Britain, is the uncertainty of the weather, but with  experience anel reliable engines it is  possible to fly in almost any weather  short of a thick fog, a hurricane, or  a violent thunderstorm."  General Brancker foresees the development of more and better qualified instructors, more reliable engines, and slower and more deliberate training, after the stress of war  js over. "At present," hc -explained,  "llrere is of necessity a good deal of  undue haste. Thc supply of aviators  is forever trying to catch up with tliT  demand, and the demand is forever-  increasing, both in numbers and ciual-  Pro-Turkish Emperor    of   Abyssinia |  Dethroned in Favor of Mene-  lik's Daughter  Abyssinia has been having a stormy  time  since   the   dealh    of     Emperor  Menelik.

Any sound man  with sound nerves���������and .women too,  for that matter���������can make, a good,  useful pilot, but it is only ihe exceptional individual who will make the  really brilliant fighting pilot. Even  the physically unsound man can be  a good pilot, like the late Lord Lucas,  who had a wooden leg.  "As for the best age for training  in flying, I think they should begin  , as young as possible. Gcncrally  spcaking, eighteen is rather young  for thc great strain of active service,  and I prefer a man of twenty or  twenty-five for army aviation work.  A man of thirty-five to forty who  has lived a hard life and is a good  horseman will probably devclop'into  a good pilot quicker than thc man of  25 lo 30 who has spcnl his life in an  office or in doing nothing, bul as a  u;le_ the older man will, not stand the  strain of active service as long as  the young man.  "The quality of horsemanship is a  useful one in any would-be airplainist.  Thc .requirements arc just the same  ���������good hands, a good head, steady  nerves, and judgment. Flying is perhaps a lit lie easier than riding, because one sits in a comfortable armchair in a quiet'machine."  No national temperament is so well  suited to flying as the British, in General Bra'nckcr's opinion. "The Englishman may. be conservative," hc remarked, "but he is certainly the finest airplane pilot in the world. TJie  old British characteristics which  made us masters of the sea are intensified in the air���������and they .will  make us masters of the air, in spite  of our politics and our system of government and all the many obstructions to progress, which will assuredly spring up as soon as peace is declared."  Turning to  the question  of casualties in  airplane  training he said: "A  good many deaths are reported, in the  papers, but when compared with the:  numbers in training and  the number  of hours in thc air accomplished every day, the price is not great, and in  the present stage of aviation the fact  must be fearlessly faced that no progress can be made without a certain  cost  in   human -life.    The   extraordinarily  few cases  of breakage  in   the  air speak well  for British  construction  and  inspection. Thc   most   common cause of accidents is engine failure,  folioevcel by    an    effort to  turn  sharply into a possible landing place  nod  losing speed on  the turn, which  results in a nose-dive.      Even    good  and   experienced   pilots  arc  prone   to  elo this, and the only cure appears to  be   the  avoidance  of engine  failures.  This will conic in peace,when we can  devote more energy towards real reliability in thc engine instead of extreme lightness and exaggerated per  formaiiccs."  Abyssinia has just reached London  from Europeans living in thc capital,  Adis Abcba.    One letter says:  "Lidj Jcassu, the young emperor  who succeeded his grandfather,  Mcncilc, had gradually come under  1 urkish influence and had in many  ways offended the Christian population. Thc legations of thc Entente  powers in September sent a joint  protest and this was followed a few  days later, by a meeting of thc ministry which declared the emperor deposed and enthroned in his place the  Princess Zaudilu, with Ras Taffari as  regent anel help to the throne.  "Things were quiet for a few weeks  while the deposed emperor's partisans were gathering. Then suddenly  Mikacl, ruler of Wollo and the mo'l  powerful chief in ihe country, declared himself in favor of the clopos-  cd emperor and marched against Adis  Abcda. Thc first battle was fought  some distance outside the capital,  where the government army of five  thousand men, under Ras Sul-Scgcd,  was viriuallv annihilated and Seged  killed.  "There was a good deal of excite  merit in the capital, and the legations  prepared for attack, but the enemy  was slow in appearing and the new  empress had time lo mobilize a  strong force which, under the personal command of the war minister, mil  the enemy on October 27. The battle lasted all day, anel resulted in the  cr.emy's complete rout. Tlie empress's  side hael ten thousand killed out of  sixty thousand engaged, while the  enemy is* saiel to have lost fifteen  thousand  killed.  "The manner of fighting was  piimitive. Al first they fired with  rifles, but,, becoming tired of this,  they threw these weapons aside and  dashed at one another with "scimitars  and spears.'  "There was great rejoicing in Adis  Abeba over the outcome of the battle, and on the return of the- victorious army a grand review was held  by the empress in person.  "Eac.h chief rode at the head r.-f his  men, and, as he approached the empress, he dismounted, drew his sword  and danced about her, shouting the  deeds he had done. This- was kept  up until the chief became exhaustcl  when he prostrated himself and  withdrew."  What Counts in the Long Run More  Than-a Standing Army  More and more do thc astounding  financial operations of England stagger the human mind. Upon the dizzy  top of a sixtccn-b^llion-dollar national debt that country swiftly and  with apparent e:<se places aiiolh'-r  tliroc and a half bilious. The world  has witnessed, nothing in the past  like these stupendous loans. Jn a  day Great Britain floats , a larger  debt than the total debt of tlie; United Stales at the close of our ' fotir  years' of civil war. Jn a day its people purchase as great a bulk of debt  as England's debt was when its  present  awful     war    began.      Thcr  Heirlooms of Drake  British Sailors and Soldiers Find an  Inspiration in Name of Famous  Sea Fighter  A great memory of a name illus-!  triotis "in great Eliza's days"-is revived by the will of Sir Francis Drake  of Nut well, Devon, who bequeathes  as heirlooms two cups and two jewels "given by Queen Elizabeth to the  Acfiniral' whose name he bore, togeth.  cr with the Bible and the sword of  the ���������doughly      scii-lightcr.

For Pulp Industry  less wealth  England's navy and England's  credit are today the two greatest  factors which Germany's army has  lo fight. Whatever else has failed^  the financing of the war for the Allies  has been a triumph for British genius. This should be of particular encouragement to the United Slates.  Our country has double the wealth of  Great Britain, although we have nol  double the marketable wealth which  she .had at the outbreak of the war.  England was fortified with an overpowering amount of securities of  other countries, and these have been  of immense value. She has been  able lo market billions in the United  Stales besides having the ability tn  borrow more.

It appears that this is the Prince's  third venture into .authorship. The  first  was his    "Hunting'Diary",'''  of  1912, in which he gave his experiences at shooting parties in Scotland, Germany, Austria, Italy, India  and Ceylon. The second was his egregious   "Germany    in    Arms,"      of  1913, in which, although the Kaiser  personally read the proofs, he committed ��������� an    indiscretion   on    almost  .every page.  In this book, the future boaster of  the fall of Verdun, posed as the  Apostle of the Sword, and his motto  was:'"The'world does not rest more  safely on the shoulders of Atlas' than  docs Germany on her army and  navy." It was a. most dangerous  book, for the whole tone of it was  that Germany could satisfy her aspirations only by  force of arms.  He repeatedly laid stress on the  power and influence of the sword,  and he declared that "though thc  vshole world be full of devils, though  all other nations rise in arms against  us, we shall triumph over them."  One of the problems of his book will  be to explain "My Failure at Verdun."  Value of Farm Land  A Despised Calling  A  writer has  been  telling*    a story  e>f  the estimation in  which    learning  was held, only twenty-five years ago,  by a large part of the population. It  was  in  Scotland,    where    Mr. Scott  .Skirving was enjoying a trip on one  of  the  Clyde: steamers.    A   man    on  the   deck  insisted  on  repealing,  to  a  crowd  of    unresponsive    passengers,  "It's a sair world this, a sair world."  J asked him, Mr. Skirving says, what  he  meant  by it!     Whereupon  he replied, "Wcel, it's aye a sair world tac  a  plumber,"   then   suddenly    adding,  "What's ycr trade?"   A schoolmaster  I  replied.    "Gic's  yer hand,"  he an-  wercd,  "I'm  fu'  6  sec/npathy.

Animals which are  allowed to exercise'get up a healthy  circulation -which enables, Ilium to  withstand chills, and if they can get  rough shelter ihey adapt themselves  to the winch*. Animals tied: up in  undue warmth during* part of the  twenty-four hours,- and standing in  cold draughts, such as are found in  nioit cowsheels, are-in a "more defenseless condition. Ventilation and  draught practically always go together and do riot work harmoniously for the 'animals.  Animals are able to stand great  cold."with impunity so long as they  can get under shelter to keep heir  skins dry, and can lie dry. It is the  evaporation of moisture from.an animal that causes ; chill .'. anel consequently the necessity for sheltering  hovels in yards and pastures. When  topping up .fattening 'cattle there is  no doubt that meat is more quickly  laid on when they arc restricted ..in  their movements; .but in doing* this  the ^ultimate object is not in main-  training a healthy constitution for a  lengthened period. It is not to be  inferred from what has been said  that animals should be left to face the  full brunt of wet and wind, snow and  frost, and the amount of shelter needed depends very much on the breed,  and whether it is in its natural climate.  Food is the great defender from  cold, and the colder, it is the more is  needed. A well-filled stomach, -ever  though it be of coarse food . with  little food material, seems to act as  a protection against cold, the. bulk  of warm substance acting as an inner lining against loss of teinperature  but the increase of cold should be,  met by additional starchy or fatty  matter which when assimilated, wi'l  generate heat.

R. Motherwell, minister of agriculture, made reply to questions ask-  cd���������by_M. L. Leitch', ALL.A., Morse,  ���������with respect' to the Bctlcr Farming  trains.  Mr. Leitch asked the number of  places visited by the Better Farming  trains, the mileage covered, the number of men, women and children-who  visited the trains in the years 1914-  16, the total cost of operating the  tiains during those j'cars, the assistance received fiom the College of  Agriculture in connection with the  tr.iins, and thc assistance given by  thc railways in operating" the trains.  Hon. W. R. Motherwell replied  that 88 places were visited by ihe  Belter Farming train in 1914, 135 ir.  1915, and 56 in 1916. In 1914 the  mileage covered was 1,3-14 miles..  The next year this increased to 1,-  94c miles, while last year the total  was 810 miles. In 1914 the total attendance was approximately 36,000  in 1915 no less than 18,262 men, 13,-  392 women.and 5,455 children attended, while hist year the totals, were  8,245 men, 5,210. women and 9,218  children.  ME Motherwell stated, that _ the  total cost of operating lire trains' in  1914 was $7,000.70; in 1915, $6,742.02,  and .'in 1916, $4,787.22. The College;of  Agriculture, he stated further, furnished the livestock and many, .other  exhibits'including a car of ������������������mechanical appliances. The college also supplied several jiicmbers .of its regular  staff who acted as lecturers'and demonstrators. \ : V"  Mr. Mollicrwell also slated that the  railway companies interested supplied  the rolling stock and operated the  trains .free of-charge.

Was this  demonstration of the effectiveness of  the submarine weapon three thousand  miles from the German coasts intended as a menace? Did Germany wish  us to realize the danger to ourselves  if we interfered with her campaign of  f rightfulness? That may well be the  case. Germany has done nothing in  this war on impulse. "The act which  forced a break iii diplomatic relations  was deliberately planned, as every  previous act had been. Thus the invasion of Belgium was an integral  part of German strategy. All the  cruelties perpetrated there and in  other conquered regions were sanctioned by military orders. All the  crimes at sea were committed in cold  blood.

From this class,  of immigrants .the pulp  mills, should *  draw their supply of. laborers.  "Labor should be plentiful in this -  province^ if wc look at Ihe population  increase since 1901. At that date' -  what is now Alberta had a population  of 63,000, in 1911 the population had  increased to over 360,000, and hi the  census taken in July, 1916, il is estimated that the population is over  550,000. In 1912 and 1913. it, . was.  estimated that-over fifty per cent, of  the population were living in cities  and towns. This percentage ,is altogether too high for an agricultur.il  province, anel labor problems should  be a minimum ejtianity in Alberta.  "Alberta  has - an    area    of 225,2S5  square   miles,   nearly    equal,   to     ihe  state of Texas.   'About 2 per cent, is  occupied  by lakes and   rivers/of-the .  balance about 30 per cent, .is in prai-'.  rie,   and   the   remainder    in   park-like  country  and  heavy  timber.

"This is enough to insure a plentiful'supply for years to come, no matter how many mills are put in opera-  lion in the near future. All this .  pulp is within easy access of rail-  loaels. We have three transcontinental railways, which offer good ship-  1 ing facilities lo any part of Canada,  the United' States, Asia and-'-Europe.  "Tlie power, available in Albertais  that our rivers,'if harnessed lo mechanical wood pulp; mills alone, would  furnish enough power to manufacture  paper for the whole of western Canada and that part of the United Stat-'  es 'lying west of the Missippi river.  !. "According to Mr. Pinchof, former  Chief of United States Forestry, he  estimated in 1913 that at the present  rate of cutting the stand of spruce in  the Slate of Maine would be exhausted in less than thirty'years. New  Hampshire twenty-five years. New  York less than ten years, Wisconsin  haS no reserve and manufactures  nearly 300,000 tons a year.  "There is-another factor that will  cause our neighbor, Ihe United States  to seek new sources of supply, espe- *  daily those States west of the Mississippi river, and will force "manufacturers to come and locate their  mills in  the province of Alberta.  "While spruce is the predominating  wood in Alberta, there is a large  .quantity of poplar in central Alberta.  This poplar should prove quite an  attraction lo those contemplating the  manufacture of the better quality of  print paper, such as used in books  and  magazines."

In his report lo the society,  Mr. Lloyd'emphasized the importance of selecting the very best grain  for seed. By using seed selected  v ith great care for a number of years  Ly the university, Mr. Lloyd was able  lo inciease his yield of wheat eight  "bushels per acre on thc same ground  under similar conditions. On stini-  -mc r-fallowed ground the selected  Marquis yielded 45 bushels per acre,  - while the ordinary Marquis produced  ���������only 37'bushels per acre. Taylor's  wonderful wheat fell somewhat below Marquis'in yield last year, but  yielded higher in 1914 and 1915.  Prenrost flax yielded 31 bushels per  acre, while ordinary scrub flax yielded only 17 bushels on similar soil.  The student took six average size  potatoes last spring and cut them  each into as many sets as possible;  thai is, cutting a set for each eye.  'J hese were planted in similar soil  and in the fall he lugged in two  big'sacks of potatoes from'the ��������� six  Rochester -Rose tubers. The six potatoes yielded three bushels. Six  Rural New Yorkers yielded two  bushels,' six Pingree one and three-  quarters, six Irish Cobbler and New  Brunswick potatoes each yielded a  bushel and a half, while the six Early  Ohio .yielded one bushel.  In his alfalfa experiment he found-  that Cossack, a new variety of alfalfa did best. He also found that thc  soil could be successfully inoculated  from old alfalfa fields.  Through a selected -stock of Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds, Mr.  Lloyd found that a considerable increase in egg production had been  effected. -Several hens laiel as many  ns 150 eggs per year.

In connection with the sheep industry there is no such outlay." This  data was collected from replies to  questions sent out.

This report, by Leo G. Denis and J. B.  Challics, comprises thc results of  special surveys by thc Commission of  Conservation and a compilation of  u-cords from other reliable sources.  As a compendium of all available data . on the subject, it is'-particularly  valuable for reference purposes.  While the Prairie Provinces, as a  whole, are not lavishly endowed with  ���������uatcr-powcrs, the report demonstrates that thc utility of their rivers for  power developments" can be vastly  enhanced through proper storage of  flood waters. At present, in the absence of conservation dams, and of  adequate natural regulations, the  great volume of flow is lost during  high water seasons. Methods of development to- ensure the maximum  utilization are now being carefully  worked out on the Winnipeg, Bow  and other large rivers. Thc more  rortherly regions possess numerous  sites of great potential value for  pulp, electro-chemical and'other special industries.  The report just issued is the second in thc series on water-powers in  Canada to be published bv the Commission of Conservation. The third  volume, "Water.- Powers- of British  Columbia," which is now in press,  will complete' the Commission's general inventory of this itcni of the  Dominion's natural wealth.

So fnr as  is known, it is the first treaty of thc  kind  ever negotiated.  American Mechanical Engineer  a Swiss Watch That Is a  Wonder   "  What is unquestionably a great  masterpiece of both mechanical construction and artistic workmanship  is presented in the form of a watch  recently finished by a well-known  Swiss watchmaker for James W.  Packard, an American mechanical  engineer.  The watch is necessarily larger  than the conventional timepiece.  In fact it is intended to be  kept in a highly-finished1 wooden  box which is fastened to a wall.  From the box extends a silken cord  which can be pulled when Hie owner  wishes to know the time by the  striking of the hours, quarter-hours,  and minutes.  Strictly speaking the watch is  more of the nature of a -clock, and  is provided with a"clock movement.  Its mechanism automatically strikes  the hours and ,, the quarter-hours,  while the repeater mechanism, which  is released by a spring, strikes the  hours and quarter-hours and exact  minutes that are indicated on the  dial by the hands. Aside from "the  usual hour, minute, and second  hands, the watch contains a movement suitable for timing an event  or an operation to the fraction of a  second, in the form of a split-second  hand and a fifth-second hand. Two  additional dials are also inclined to  indicate respectively the number of  minutes and the number of hours  which have elapsed during the actual  use of the split-second mechanism.J  Another interesting feature is the  perpetual calendar which makes" allowances for the 31, 30 and 28-day.  months, and even the 29 days of  February each leap-year. The phases  of the moon can be instantly determined by referring to a" crescent-  shaped opening in the upper, centre  of the dial. Lastly, a most.useful attachment is incorporated in the watch  to indicate when the gong movement  and the watch movement were last  wound.  The gold used in the case of the  watch is 18-carat and weights nearly  seven ounces^ Three-Separate mechanisms are required to perform the  various functions of the watch; two  of them are wound by Turning the  winding stem in one direction and  the remaining movement wound by  turning the winding stem in tire opposite direction.  Is Going to Make Seme Real Music  -   That Will Surprise .Everybody  Apropos of Edison's seventieth  birthday tlie other day:    ,  "Were the age called upon to pay  to Thomas A. Edison all it owes to  him, thc age would have to make an  assignment," is the- way thai one of  the earliest associates of the great  inventor, who celebrates his .seventieth birthday today, summed up a  friend's opinion of Edison.     ���������"  "Wc were sitting in front of a log  fireplace while, the snow fell silently  without, and the talk drifted lo olel  limes. The story was told of how  Mr. .Edison in the ' days at Menlo  Tark, when the difficulties connected  with perfecting the incandescent  lamp seemed almost insurmountable,  had said:  "Just wait a little while and we'll  make electric light so cheap thai only  the wealthy can offord to buy candles."  One of his old associates found  him working over' the -disk phonograph one day.  "I'm" going to make some real music with that," Edison said to him.  "You've only had approximate "music  up to now."  "I didn't know you were a musician  Mr. Edison," said the visitoi.  "Lots of- things the musicians  don't know," he- replied. "Wagner  couldn't sing���������couldn't play a common waltz. But he could write  music���������wrote il out of his head. 1'n.  studying lire laws of music, laws of  sound. You'll see? They laugh at  me,  but I'm  getting  there."  Thc late violinist Remenyl used to  call at the old Edison office in New  York. Some one asked Mr. Edison  if he remembered the* visits.  "I remember him well," Mr. Edison replied. "I was working on the  phonograph. He used to come to  No. 65 after his concerts and talk.  Pie was a long-winded talker. I  think he was a Socialist or something. He would sit -there talking,  and by-and-by start playing most  beautiful music���������wailing, soft music. He'd play two _ or three thousand  dollars' worth  every night."  "Didn't you get him to play __ once  for the phonograph?" Mr. Edison  was asked.  "Yes, but -the phonograph wasn't  working well in those days, so it  didn't do him justice.- He slood on a  soapbox and played for me one night,  and when he finished tears were rolling down his cheeks. M asked him  what the matter was, and he said it  always made him cry to hear good  music."  France to Use*.

Canadian Soldiers Grow Vegetables  Canadian units in England have  been ordered to turn their activities  i.artially to vegetable growing this  spring, with a view- to augmentation  of thc supply of home-grown food.  Suitable plots on camp districts arc  to be cultivated by the soldiers. -  Experiments Prove Quick    Germination and This Seed Strongly Recommended  .Manitoba wheat growing experiments have been extensively carried  cut under the patronage of the recognized municipal government syndicates in southern France, especially  in the departments of Var, Vaucluse,  Gard and Bassis Pyrenees,, and have  met with such unqualified sttcces*-  that the southern and southwestern  farming ���������**��������� ndicates have, by means  of the press, pamphlets and public  meetings, strongly urged upon the  farmers all over the district watered  by the lower Rhine and Garonne and  Gironde and comprising .a most fertile district, two-fifths the total area  of. France, to use Manitoba wheat for  spring  seeding purposes.  Tt has been found that Manitoba  wheat in France germinates quicker,  comes out strongcrand ripens earlier  than any other kind, and that consequently the farmer gets an earlier  arid better;, crop than by using other  wheat seed.  . Manitoba -wheat seed has actually  produced crops in France-that could  be garnered in three months after  seeding. ;"  It is certain that a great demand  for Manitoba wheat for seeding purposes in southern France can be expected, as the recommendation of the  French regional farmers' syndicates,  which are entirely officered by competent, practical, scientific and well-  to-do landowners and wealthy agriculturalists, are always acted upon by  that keen and money-making class,  tire French farmer.  If the farmers 'of. the Beaucc district, which is the largest wheat producing region in France, follow, as is  likely, the example of their more  southern brethren, hundreds of thousands of bushels of Manitoba wheat  will'soon find their way to France  for spring seeding' purposes.  Scientist  Thinks  There  Is   Sufficient  Radium Deposits to do Job  Nearly 1,900 years ago St. Peter  wrote in the third chapter of his second epistle t-  Bul the day of the Lord will conn:  as a thief in the night; in which thc  heavens shall pass away with a' great  noise, and the elements shall melt  ���������with' fervent-heat, the earth also an-1  the works that' are therein shall be  burned up.  And today, writing in the Electrical  Experimenter, FJ. Gcrnsback* says:  If we place a thermometer into a  phial containing a minute, quantity of  radium bromide; the purest coniiucr-  'cial radium, the mercury will indicate  a temperature 2.7 degrees hotter than  the temperature outside of the phial.  The heal radiated from one speck of  ladiunt bromide does not' grow less  as the days and months, nay, years  and centuries roll by.  In order belter to comprehend  what this means, let^t us compare il  with coal.   This is what wc find:  According to Prof. Soddy, a gram  of pure tadiuin evolves 133 calories  of heat an hour. In one year (8,760  hours) the same gram of radium  evolves 1,160,000 calorics. In 2,500  years���������thc length of lime radium will  evolve energy���������2,900,000,000 calories  will be developed, while a gram ' of  coal evolves 2,200 calories of heat.  Anel radium is by no means .as  scarcc as most people believe. Radium emulations have been found in  springs, in the air, in rocks, etc., and  this has given rise to an extraordinary  theory regarding the evolution of the  worlds.  When the famous Swiss-Italian  Simpion tunnel was constructed some,  years ago, totally unforseen circumstances arose which made the work  most difiicut. Although this tunnel  is far above sea level, the heal became unendurable as the work progressed. Artificial cooling had lo be  resorted to in order lo allow the  .workmen to proceed with their work.  Prof. Jolly then made the-discovery  that the rocks of thc Simpion contained radium," which, accounted for  thc unexpected high teinperature  within  thc  mountain.  From this Joly has built up a new  theory of evolution, and while revolutionary in the extreme it is most  plausible and gains more adherents  each year.  Lord Kelvin deduced thai if the  carlh contained only two parts of radium per million million���������and a great  deal more is actually found in the  rocks and crusl of our globe���������this  minute quantity would raise the temperature of the earth's core 1,800 degrees C. in 100,000,000 years. Theie  being no escape for the imprisoned  heat���������the earth's crust being an exceedingly bad heat conductor���������Prof.  Joly argues with us thai as ihe ages  roll by the interior of the carlh must  become hotter and hotter, l-mally  after thc end of millions of years, the  crust must give way to this tremendous heat from within and the bursting earth must go up in" flames, becoming a burning gas ball, just as wc  see our sun today.

She  had got over her first horror and dismay, and set herself the task of listening and replying quietly to this  most unexpected attack.  "You can set your mind at.rest, and  his too," she said when Mrs. Lowndes  paused for breath. "I certainly never dreamed of marrying Mr. Ciprian.  I don't deny that I  was touched    bv  The convenient soda biscuit  becomes a real treat when it's  relief,  unconsciously perhaps  "That's well," she said. "For marriage between equals is thc host, and  Lord and Lady Moorhampton could  never have got on with you for their  son's wife, after all thc'lroublc yrou've  raised about Mi. Wright."  A fresh spasm of amazemertt seized the girl.  "Mr. "Wright!" echoed she indignantly. "Do you mean to say that  they will remain good friends with  him w'hen once they hear all that he  did to Lord Moorhamplon's son���������  from his own lips!"  Mrs. Lowndes threw al her a peculiar look, anel Mabin suddenly, realized for the first lime that her own account of what happened at the City  office was discredited, and that Toe  "Wright had given a version of the  story which had been accepted by  the family.  But then there was Ciprian himself! Would not hc have told _ the  housekeeper his opinion of Wright?  Would he not have confirmed Alabin's  account of thc attack in the office?  A sudden spasm of doubt assailed  her. Had she indeed herself made a  ghastly mistake? She had heard the  voice of thc assailant, but had not  seen him. Was it some person other  1 than Wright who had tried to murder  Ciprian?  Confused, bewildered and doubtful,  the  girl   stood  turning    over      these  things in  her mind, and  the    housekeeper,  not al all anxious  lo answer  the question bhe had put, watched tier  furtively.  At last Mabin walked to the door.  "Well,"   she  said,  "I   don't    understand you,  Mrs. Lowndes.    You be  ran by being as anxious as I was to  keep Air. Ciprian hidden until he was  well.   And you didn't deny it was because  you  didn't  trust . Mr. _ Wright*.  If you have changed your mir.d about  him, and if you think it doesn't matter that he should know where    Air.  Ciprian is.

The housekeeper appeared to relent a little at that, and went towards  her with vague words of consolation  on her lips. But 'Mabin would have  none of them. Sobbing still, she went  out of the room without, any more  words and stole upstairs to" ,the  schoolroom, where, in spite of the  ���������housekeeper's' . fulminations, she  thought it wise to,keep the door ajar,  that she might hear if there were any-  new attempt on the part of Joe  Wright to get into the sick room in  the dark wing.  It was about half an hour later that  Lady Moorhamplon's* maid came to  ask her if she would go to the boudoir, as her ladyship, wanted to speak  to her.  If she had not already been prepared for thc worst, the expression of  stealthy interest on the maid's face  would have, told Mabin to expect a  stormy interyiew. As it was, the girl  had just undergone such an uncx-'  pecledly trying ordeal at the hands  of Airs. Lowndes, that she felt as if  she could bear no more. Nevertheless, she could not choose, anel she  had to obey the summons.  She rose from her chair by the  fire, and followed the maid without a  word, white, tremulous, miserable,  agitated, wondering what the verdict  upon her conduct was going to be.  she  had  never been  in  before.    The  atmosphere of luxury and the charm  "It was for a reason, a strong reason," said Mabin.  Lady Moorhampton made an impatient movement with . her right  hand.  "Oh, pray don't enter into all that  absurd rigmarole again.

But rcai  Good Going  A  Northumberland     county     (Ontario) man says in part: "One of our  good old cooks said Ihe other day, ino  reply to a query about the nature of.  the   forthcoming   dinner.     'Men-'     he  said,  'you   don't   seem   to  understand  army cooking.    Wc just throw everything into   the   pot  and   offer-   up  a  prayer.

Your salary will be paid you,  of course. What is owing? You can  reckon it up to a month from now,  and I,will give it you."  Mabin, who had lislencd quietly,  though a red spoL of color had~come  inlo each of her pale checks, raised  her head quickly.  "I will take no money from you,  Lady Aloorhanrpton," she said in a  tone quite as haughty as that of the  older woman. "There was no question of salary, at any time. I came  with-julins because I love him, and���������  "Oh, yes, yes. Very good of you,  of course, and devoted, and all that.  But it's not quite what we'want for  the boy. So you must go. Goodbye. I will say all that is necessary  to Lord Moorhampton."  Mabin almost slaggered. So she  was to -be discharged not like a disgraced scivant, but like an intruder,  an unwelcome anel .distasteful person  who has forced his way inlo respectable circles and who must be trot rid  of at all costs.

This room seemed to open to the  girl a new world, of beauty, and lux-  uiy, anel thc softer side of life.  > Lady Moprhamplon knew how to  fit herself to her surroundings, and  looked, so Mabin thought, like a  queen, as she sat, in her handsome  dress, among thc cushions of the sofa.  "I hear you have been insulting my  biother," she said coldly, scarcely-  condescending to turn her head away  fiom the dog, and iiWhc direction of  thc secretary'.  "I  don't  think so."  Lady Moorhampton moved impatiently. Mabin was beneath her attention, and could not expeel lo carry-  on a discussion with her superiors.  "Oh, bul you did. Hc says so. And  he is worthy of credit, while you arc  nol. You have proved yourself unworthy of belief. For this is not the  first lime you have shown your paltry, mean spite against 'him. Why  I'm sure  I don't know."  "I have no spile against Air.  Wright."  "You told him to leave the house,"  cried Lady 'Moorhampton sharply.  "An unheard of act of presumption  on your part."

SICKLY BABIES  Canning Whale Meat  Flesh of thc Whale Now Being Introduced to the American Table  Fresh whale meal is being solel in  j,thc markets at Los Angeles, while al  1 Long Beach a fish cannery is preparing and-packing it  for general   consumption.    This is the first lime, ' so  far as can be learned, that the flesh  of thc whale has been introduced fertile American table-    In Japan, however, it forms an important part    of  the diet for the poorer classes, and in  New  Zealand  large  c-uantities  of    it  are canned for South Sea    islanders.  A humpback whale will yield as much  as 80,000 lbs- of meat, in addition to  blubber, oil, and bone.    Thc flesh is  of  coarse  grain,  and  when   prepared  has a distinctive flavor that is somewhat similar to that of venison.    But  besides being palatable, 98 per cent,  of thc material it contains is digestible, a ratio that is 7 per cent- higher  than ordinary beef.      The    adversion  which persons in this country usually  manifest  when  attenipls     arc    made  to  encourage    the consumption      of  things  known  domestically    but not  popularly looked upon as  foods, has  not been  experienced    in    California  with whale meat.    A few weeks ago  five tons of the meat was retailed in  Los Angeles at 14 cents a pound.  No Asthma Remedy Like It. Dr.  J. D.

To    work    a'  'lorse with a sore shoulder is barbarous.   The collar should fit so that one  can easily get  thc hand between  the  bottom o_f it and the horse's  throat.  If Jit is  too  large it  will be  sure  to  make the neck sore, and if too small  it  will  choke  when  the  horse  pulls.  Never use a pad under, a collar so as  to  make  it fit;  a pad  keeps  all    air  out  from under  tire  collar and    the  shoulders soon scald in hot weather.  The first thing to do -when going to  :work a  colt is  to sec  whether  there  is a collar to fit him-    If not, go and  buy one.  mm  1153  Pa's Interpretation  "Pa,    what    docs  it  .mean  about  riches  having wings?"

Conklin never got into  the printing office, but he had  been in the Bible business for  years and probablj*- was accustomed to taking his Henry  Stege and a clove on the run.  It may be that the politicians  of this district have had peculiar previous experiences. Even  Shatford appeared nervous and  jumpy and left the door open  when he called. We never  could get around the counter  to close and lock that door before he had remembered a very  pressing engagement. They are,  indeed, a strange bunch of politicians in this district.

There is so much war news  that isn't war news, and so little  that isn't lies, that we have decided not to publish anything  in future about the Italians  "hurling" themselves on the  Austria'ns, the Riussing advancing, three versts westi*- and administering a "crushing blow"  and afterwards finding themselves 6 versts east of the starting point. The real fighting  has, is, and will be done on the  western front, and unless the  British and French smash the  Germans it will never be done  by the opera bouife soldiers of  the bohunk nations of southeastern and eastern Europe.  It may have been, and probably was, a plant,  but thc consensus  of opinion will be that  the man whose aim is  to be a  a prize goat is not a safe representative   of the  people.    A  cabinet   minister's   reputation  is not an  individual possession  to be bartered at the will of the  guardian of it at any particular  .'time. Every one, Grit and Tory,  will   regret    that   one   of   the  most brilliant of the province's  young  men has been "caught"  by the coast and railroad and  land    gang.     Mr.    Macdonnld  is the goat.-   The gang were out  to get him, and got him.   Ho  had his eyes open.   The rest of  the cabinet will not be caught.  They are halter-broke.
