The  mighty powers of the world are  very largely dependent upon this  dominion for an essential constituent of armourplate. The greater  part of the world production of  nickel comes from Ontario, and  without that supply tho manufacture of armorplate, steel rails and  machine parts would be largely  diminished.  The district of Sudbury,  which  practically constitutes all of Canada's output, therefore has a lot to  do with Mr. Churchill's naval estimates.    In fact should some physical convulsion close down  but two  mines in that district the progress  of  battleship   construction  would  be materially interrupted.    In 1909  the world's   production  of nickel  was .'55,000,000 pounds,   to which  Canflda contributed more thau 26,-  000,000.     In 1910 the Canadian  output was moro than 37,000,000  pound, or possibly ninety per cent  of the world  aggregate.    Tho remainder of the supply comes from  New Caledonia, Gormany, Norway,  and the  United States.���������Victoria  Daily Times.

Thinking Themes  The businessman who does not  advertise in the local papers is  narrow and selfish. If all were  like him, that great convenience,  the local paper, would not exist.  In the United States the people  eat annually S'37,OOO,O0O worth of  breakfast foods, and yet some  Yanks kick about putting wood  pulp on the free list, remarks the  wise man of the Orient Journal.  It is a lonesome day when there  is not a cock-fight around The  Ledge office. Nearly all the roosters in the neighborhood fight their  duels around this office, and as we  no longer own a bull-dog we see no  way of stopping these sanguinary  struggles, as most of the combats  takej place early in the morning  before the police force turns out  for duty. Often as the sun is just  peeping over the hills do we come  to our office to find the front steps  covered with blood and the lawn  strewn with feathers, mutely telling of war to the death among the  cooks of the walk. We suppose  this terrible carnage, this frightful  expenditure of blood, energy and  feathers will go on until the Powers  intervene, or some stern black  hand reaches out and puts the waring birds into a dreamless sleep with  the axe and neck combination.  There is no justice without love.  Justice consists in seeing clearly  the truth of a matter, in drawing  correct conclusions from the facts,  observed, and in dealing praise or  blame, reward or punishment fairly  to each person concerned. So  then justice is first clear seeing;  second, accurate reasoning, and  third, honest .decision. Not one of  these three functions is possible  without love.  First, eyes cannot see nor pars  hear except one loves. Hate or indifference destroys the perceptive  faculty. One can know no person  or thing one does not love.  Second, one cannot reason fairly  without love. Logic unguided by  affection is worthless. ' The processes of the mind go astray at  every step unless they be guided  by this powerful instinct. Those  who best know the human intellect  know how faulty and' utterly unreliable it is when it is cold.  Third, any honest award, any  satisfactory decision, is impossible  without love. Loveless conclusions, rewards and punishments  are unconvincing to the judge himself, are irritating and debasing to  the punished, and are humilitating  to those rewarded.  Montana has'lnst one of its distinctive phases in tho passing of  its cattle ranges.  Ono of the. quaint, picture-quo  figures of tho old regime was Mrs.  Nat Collins, known all over the  west as "The Cattle Queen."  Sim won the. title and had no  rivals. She was the only woman  cattle raiser and shipper the state  ever had. Although nearing tho  three-score and ton mark she is  still hale and hearty. She has  lived a busy life, full of physical  and mental activity; a hard life,  too for she has done the hard work-  that men.  "Why did 1 go into the catLle  business?" she said in a recent interview. "Why, I just had to.  There was the ranch, tho cattle,  and a living to bo made, and some  one had to do it when daddy's  health gave out."  "Daddy" was the husband of  the "Cattle Queen;" and ho broke  down under tho strain of hard  work and sickness and was a helpless invalid for twenty yoare before his death.  Over twenty years ago Mrs.  Collins took hor first shipment of  cattle to the Chicago market.

There Isvisited an old monastery  and a brother showed me the library, wherein I was allowed to  browse as long as I pleased. There  were hundreds of books, beautifully bound in vellum, many of  them written by hand upon parchment.  I came away rather sad. I had  dug into many books. They must  have been written at gioat pains  by men under serious impulses.  Lives had been poured into thoso  books.

There were  100 wagons in the train in which  Mrs. Collins crossed the plains. A  dispute arose, and tho train separated, fifty wagons in each division.  In her train one dny someone  sighted Indians. Tho woods seemed to be full of them and thero  seemed to be people moving at a  distance. Because her sight was  the keenest, Mrs. Collins was  chosen lookout.  Riding out into the edge of the  woods she saw that there were indeed Indians and plenty of them.  This she reported and when darkness came on the train, as a precaution, camped in the shape of a  half moon, the stock being driven  inside and the wagons used for  breastworks.  Then a second party went still  further into the woods and it was  learned that thero were Indians all  right, butjthoy were accompanied  by soldiers from Fort Smith. The  Indians under Stony Bear were  conducting a treaty with the government and were then preparing  to cross the Powder river. The  wagon train next morning drew up  on the banks of the river and tho  men began to mako ferry boats.  First   thoy   took their Buffalo  skins and   spread   them   on   the,  ground.    Thou each   family   disrobed and put all their belongings,  dogs,  children,  clothing,   cooking  utensils, everything, into tho skins,  which  wero peforated around the  edges    and   had    drawn   strings.  These worn drawn   up and  forced  into a sort of a canon.    A pony  was hitched to each  canoe and an  Indian mounted its back,  putting  his arms around   tho pony's nock  rVn   agitation  appears to   have  been started for label goods. There  are many sides to [this  question.  Undoubtedly the labor unions have  as much right to label  aud  advertise their product as the trusts have  to  use their trademarks.    But at  this point their rights end.    They  have no right to   make   the   merchant or consumer buy their goods  by coercive means.    If they did possess this  right, competition would  cease, and they  would  become as  great an evil to society as the trust.  There are good   union   labels,   as  there, are bad  ones.    The  average  union label stands for   fair   treatment and living wages.    But their  aro also some which endorse dynamiting and murder.    The labels of  tho unions which endorsed and reelected their loaders after thoy had  been   convicted   by   tho   supremo  court of dynamiting (in many oases  it was proven that tho dynamiting  resulted in murder), belong to thii'  class.    And it must not be assumed  that all goods which  do  not bear  the  union   label   come   from  the  sweat   shop.    Tn   many  instances  the employees receive higher wages  and better usage than union labor.  Tho fact is,   manufacturers  nowadays, prefer to select   their  forces  from an efficiency standpoint. The  union label is not always a sign  of  fair treatment.    We have known  lots of goods bearing it which have  been mude by men who  have been  swindled out of   their wages.    In  other cases it is used   under false  pretonces.     Many such instances  might possibly be unearthed close  to home.    Then there are the local  merchants.    They are surely wor  thy of some consideration.    Most  of them have big stocks of unlabeled goods on hand.    After thoy dispose of these, perhaps at a sacriflce  their purchasing market will in all  probability   be   restricted   to   the  dearest.    And still they will be expected to compete with the eastern  departmental store, which wiil obviously be a more diflicult task  to  do than in the past.     Tho result  will bo that moro money   will  go  out of the city   to thoso   concerns  than heretofore.    Some agitation**  are good for   the  public.    Others  are mischievous,  and  benefit only  the professional agitators and   demagogues.    We   feel   justified   in  placing the variety described above  in tho latter class.���������Grand   Forks  Sun.  LYNN CREEK DAIRY  DELIVERED  To any part of the city or district  J.

Secretary MacVeagh's Plan to Reduce  the Size of Banknotes.  Tho size of all United States curren.  cy and national banknotes will be reduced by one-third and their designs  revolutionized for the sake of economies to the government, convenience  to the public aud safety against counterfeiting If Secretary MacVeagb of the  treasury has his way.  It is proposed to make the dimensions  C by 2*4 inches. The paper money now  in circulation measures 7.28 by 3.04  inches. The designs of all paper money  ��������� Dnlted States notes and certificates  nnd national bank notes���������would be systematized and made uniform for every  denomination.  This move Is expected to save the government about ���������jiUOO.OOO annually and  the national banks, which pay for the  plates for their notes and part of the  cost of redemption, about $200,000.  Kor many mouths the only deterrent  to the step by executive authorities has  been the belief thnt it would be necessary for congress to appropriate about  $1,000,000 lo replace the national bank  plates which have been paid for by the  iinlloniil banks. This problem has been  solved by a plan to have tlie general  design of all.national bank notes uniform, requiring only oue engraved  plate for each denomination, and to  place ou the notes by surface printing  the name, location and charier number  of the bank. This would do away with  separate plates for each bank.  Ellghtcen months would be required  to effect tlie change. To meet ihe objection that for a time at least there  would be two sizes of currency in circulation It has been suggested that the  government print iu advance a suili-  dent quantity of (lie notes of the uew  size to be exchanged at the subtreas  uries and national banks on a lixcd  date. .The change could be substantially accomplished within a few days,  treasury officials believe.  There are now nineteen different de  signs of currency. The change would  reduce these to nine. Each denuiiiinn  tion would be characterized by a distinctively American historical portrait  engraved In tbe center of the note. In  time the portrait would be a distinguish  ing feature of each denomination and  would be a safeguard against counterfeiting, especially the prevalent practice of raising n note to a higher de  nomination.���������Kansas City Star.

Ono of the Latest Achievements  Synthetic Chemistry.  Synthetic chemistry is working wonders in many Melds, and one of the  latest discoveries by its experts is how  to make ivory out of nothing more  wonderful than cow's milk-and very  good ivory at that, according to all  accounts. Tlie original idea was to  use the new "ivory" for piano and organ keys because it. preserves its original color Indefinitely, whereas the genuine article turns yellow after a time.  But it has been found that the new  product is not only an efficient substitute for Ivory, but can easily be pre-  .liared so as to take the place of amber,  born, coral, celluloid and such like  products and. It is claimed, can hardly  be distinguished from them.  It Is in its position us 11 substitute  for ivory tliat the new material has  caused most surprise, however, because It has tho appearance of being  another instance of Improving upon  nature. The new ivory takes a very  high and lasting polish and probably  will not lack a commercial field for  itself, as natural ivory continues to  grow scarcer and dearer year by year.  ���������Allahabad Pioneer.

It was the most  unique, independent and fearless journal ever produced in Canada. Political  and theological enemies pursued it with  the venom of a rattlesnake until tlio  government shut it out of tho mails,  and its editor ceasad to publieh it,  pa-tly on account of a lazy liver and  partly because it takes n pile of nionev  to run a paper that is outlawed.

Tho outlook for the production  of a large quantity of placer gold  is regarded as very encouraging.
