At the'annual meeting of the Bank  of,Montreal General Manager CIou-  ston said :   ;   .������ -    ,  ''Taking a broad .view ,of  Canadian  commerce, -the  future is,bright with  promise.   . Our population is fed now  by an immigration of upwards of,100,-  000 people annually, 'and  the stream,  appears   to   be   well   turned towards  Canada.     Production  in   the' northwest   grows   apiice,   the railways are'  prosperous, a second "transcontinental  line is on the eve of "construction; the  reports from the' mining   districts of  British Columbia are more encouraging; a spirit "of abiding confidence in'  Canada pervades our people) and despite temporary checks in the progress  of material development, .there  is increasing,belief  that" this country lias  .entered "upon <an era of .-,_ *',,  ft   GREAT A*s*n ENDURING PROSPERITY."  Sir George/Drummond said : "In  reviewing the general condition of the'  country it may be '* noted that tbe  Stock Exchange, reflecting as it' does  the views of investors, has''apparently,  entered,on a period'of revival; "securities have now a higher range of value,  and confidence in the lasting character  of this improvement * appears to* be'  spreading.'1 It' is, evident that any  marked increase'in immigration or in  the'production of .cereals must come'  from the northwest.      We have there  '.VX IMMENSE .TERRITORY,  of'which   the   area t- stated  in figures  conveys no adequate'idea,' but  taking  only" that portion to ,the south  of the  55th parallel of latitude, which as you  know, passes  through   the   north   of,  England, 'the    Government   expert  estimates   that, the," portion,suitable  for ."-cultivation* in- Manitoba,- Assini-'  boia, Saskatchewan'and Alberta, 'that"  is,-"from Manitoba to'the- mountains,  "reaches an   extent   considerably   exceeding the total area-of  the Empire  of Germany,i-' while   referring   to the  much larger   extent' to   the north of,  the 55th parallel, he   says .      'What  proportion of these vast  districts vvill  be capable of   the profitable growing  of ci ops is as  vet a   matter   of   con- ,  jecture.    Striking proofs o! progress in  this part of   the  Don i in ion'a re everywhere   visible.      The   population   of  Manitoba.a:id the  Territories,  which  in 1901 was 422,000,  became  in   1901  i  870,000. The homestead, entries,  which in 1901 liuinbeied 8,157 and  represented 1.305.120 acres taken for  cultivation, had in 1903 reached the  number of 31,3S3 and covered an  acreage^ 5,0:1,281."    -  THE WAR.

The south slopes are'still covered with  the,bodies buried under  the  debris of,  trenches and b'ombproofs."    The  long  lines of Japanese dead laid out on the  top of the hill and the slopes  previous  to interment presented' ah   awful ap-,  pearance. .  The "effect   of  dynamite  used a3 an offensive   weapon   in  'tlie  form of hand grenades is instanced'in  an.appallingbnanner by the condition  of the dead bodies, which are torn and  almost unrecognizable masses of   flesh  and bones.    ��������� Fragmentsr of hundreds  of,killed unearthed from   the filled in  'Russian trenches presented  a s.cene of  awful horror.

The logs .were  thence driven down this creek by men  employed by the company, thence  into Shuswnp River, then across  Mabel Lake into the Spallumcheen  River to .Enderby, a distance of between 70 and 80 miles.

The pears were so  excellent that the judges ate all of  them.  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy  the Best Made.  "In my opinion Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy is the best made for  colds," says Mrs. Cora Walker of  Porterville, California. There is no  doubt about its being the , best. No  other will cure a cold so quickly. No  other is so sure a preventive of pneumonia. No other is so pleasant and  safe to take. These are good reasons  why it' should be preferred to any  other. The fact is 'that few peopl-  are satisfied with any other after having once used this remedy. For sale  by all druggistB.

To this  attainment he has designed a barge,or  scow, the deck of winch is divided into  n'series of hoppers discharged thiough  closable doors into sub-deck passages  in which ore tubs or cars may be run,  antl which passages are in communication with hatchways, at the ends of  liarge through which the empty tube fa  niny be lowered and the fullf, ones  raised.      r ��������� '   *  LVII'ltOvb)  I.UMUUIt '.VtACIlI.N'i:.  A.-W. Tait, of  Vancouver, lias just  received a^U: S. Patent oil a saw carriage for cutting'bevel   boards   from  a  sawn cant. This, invention is diiectcd  to'tho attainment of a cheaper method  pf producing  bevel  siding, for .which  there is a large and rapidly'incieasing  demand in   the 'building' trade.    Mr.  Tait realised that this demand'may. be  increased  if a means is provided  for  producing' bevel   boaid   nunc rapidly  and cheaply" than  can at  piesent  be  done, and he has to this end designed  the machine  which' is. the subject  of  this'patent.1' In this machine tlie faawii  cant1* is placed  on   a  seat  which ' is  pivotally mounted orr  a saw' carriage  of ordinary'construction on  an* , axle  parallel to the line of moveinenttso as  to be tiltable above and below a  line  at right angles to the"plane of cutting,  the position   of the axle  being, such  that  when   the cant is'tilted to  the  upward position ancl set.after a board  has been cut' the cant may bo tilted to  the downward position  and  a  second  board     cut     from , , the     caiit, 'to  the opposite   bevel    without    further  set. *  - It 'a double cutting band saw' is  */ - j   * ** i  used the carriage -may. tlnu be tra-  ���������verstd back and forth rind 'boards of  uniform bevel cut successfully from  tne cant,until it is used up. l   ,  'A machine has been" built\*Jm  accordance with the * Patent ] specification and the-inventor's practical  acquaintance'with saw mill req'uiie-  nients is itself a guarantee of .the  sufficiency of the machine to perform  tlie', work it is designed f.r. - Miv-Tait  is satisfied that the "machine" will  enablc'bcyel boriids to, be 'cut at a  much cheaper rate than can be,done  by any other system at present ih the  'riiaik'et aiid.is content to wait until he  can find a firm enterprising enough to  avail themselves of it.  ,,Il may be that as in many other  cases in the past, the patent lights  will be acq .ired on the otlier side of  the line and still further subject the  lumber tiade to the ��������� ''unfair competition", oLwhich our industries so  fiequently complain.  F." Kilby ancl H. P. Goodn.urpliy,  Vancouver, Canadian patent on means  for controlling electric' signal lights  for railway or tram line.  A. T. Abbey and F. Esmond,' Victoria, U. S. patent on fluoiescent indicator for an electric lamp, switch ��������� box  oi" drop key. This invention consists  of a band of fluoiescent or light emitting material encircling the socket of  a lamp or the casting of a switch box  by which the location ot the key to  turn on the light may be readily  found. The difficulty of locating a  lamp or switch box on entering a room  has so long been experienced that it is  a wonder that some such device has  not been on the market before this.

We learn that the Family Herald  and Weekly Star of Montreal is this  season having an immense increase in  tbo number of new subscribers over  all previous years.' The premium picture, "The Princess at Work," is no  doubt accountable for a share of tho  increase, but the immense value of the  Family Herald itself as a great family and farm paper is every year becoming more generally known and is  adding thousands of new readers annually. Wc notice the Publishers are  calling on all old subscribers to renew  earlier than usual this season to help  them out in the Christmas rush. Tbe  dollar dailies fail to tempt the Cana  dian Public when the Family Herald  and Weekly Star with such a handsome picture can be had for the same  amount.

' .  *-    FKU1T   GROWING  is becoming the main industry of  the  ,  .small farmer in the Okanagan  valley.  ��������� iibut the market for the small  fiuita is  limited, and in   01'der   to  att'oid   the  -utmost scope  for  the  industry,   preserving   works  are   lequired.     Such  works are in any case a  rcqusite   for  ��������� the   fruit   grower,   as   if ��������� they   weio  established   they   would   enable   tlie  fruitgrower to  ship out  prime fiuit  and comniand  the  best  price,   whilo  J the  lower   grades,   instead   of   being  practically waned as at present, could  ' 'he used   for  drying   and   preserving.  i-Steps should  theicforc   bo   taken to  -reopen the woi ks built at  A'ernon for  this purpose some years ago, and with  the   co-operation   of the Coldstream  ��������� estate ancl otlier large growers there is  ���������no reason why this industry should  mot   be   successfully    operated    next  1  ��������� summer. ,  At * Kclowna arrangements have  ���������been made to start a preserving fac-  -tory as soon as the necessary fruit is  available, ancl J. M. Robinson Inn  already arranged for the necessary  capital for establishing a similar in-  "dustrya't Siiinmcrliind. With these  .preserving factories the fruit growers  through the valley will be placed in  .an independent position so far as the  market is concerned, a*- they will thus  ihe enabled to utilise their whole crop  >to advantage. For the larger fruits  'there is at picscnt an unlimited niar-  iket, and for apples the British and  .Australian markets arc open for the  ���������surplus.  ' Truck farming is liable to bo ovei-  .<lone without these preserving  works,  but with them   whatever  fresh   vegetables do not Iind a ready market  can  Jbe turned over to the cunning ostab-  llishments.  nous    *    ���������form one of the staple  farm   products  of the valley now, and always will.  AVhcre dairying, mixed fanning 'and  fruit growing are carried on there is  always ii lot of waste food'which they  will use profitably, and theie is always  a first class market for- hogs. P. Burns  and Company bay immense quantities of hogs in this valley each year,  and the pork-packing industry established by Mr. Knight at Vernon has  been a splendid thing-for the valley.  Mr. Knight turns out a (product that  ,vvill rank with anything in the iriar-  kot.and by .establishing"^ local market  for the farmer; and'.at thei same time  ,an important local industry ,he has  been proving a benefactor to this  section of the counliy and doing much  to promote its development. ���������  noi' cinowi.va ,  ,is'another industry that might bepur-  suecLwith advantage.

After examining the New-  Scale AVilliauis Piano, he expressed  his opinion of it in the following  words : " I was surprised to find such  beautiful quality of tone, so wonderfully powerful, aud of such rich sustaining quality. II is equal to any  piano I have ever tried. I was particularly pleased with its elastic touch,  and the ease with whicii the tone lends  itself to the wishes of the performer.
