Ou  the Canadian  Pacific Railway's new Trans-Pacific steamship  the "Empress of Russia" and the  ''Empress of Asia" which  will  be  put into service between Canada  and the Orient next year,  special  Btorage facilities are being provided  for the carrying of silk  freights.  Silk is a product in which careful  handling and speedy delivery are  essential.   This later conditions is  made necessary by the fluctuations  in the money market.    Iu the past  the Canadian Pacific has made a  name for itself for the speed with  which ib  is  able  to deliver silk  shipped  from the Orient to New  York, all records for fasb delivery  between   these two   points   being  held  by this company.    With the  Empresses of Russia aud Asia in  operation it is expected  that tho  time required to make shipments  of silk from tho Orient to New  York will be reduced  very considerably,  as the now Empresses  will bo soveral knots an hour faster  than the vessels at present oporated  on tho Pacific by the C.P.R.  The first public school in the  Bulkley Valley was opened at  Telkwa last week.  For the next six month, James  Cronin will manage the Standard  mino at Silverton.  Port Essington may be the terminus of a railway from Hudson Bay  to the Pacific coast.  The railway reached New Hazelton this week, and there is a building boom in that town.

Iu Vancouver twenty years ago  butter was twenty cents a pound,  and potatoes from 812 to $14 a ton.  This year the C.P.R. has bought  206,147 tons of steel rails, tieplates,  and fastenings, at a cost of $7,700,-  000   This mouth an average of seven  million bushels of grain, have been  threshed daily iu the prairie provinces.  Since they were discovered the  placer mines in the Upper Yukon,  have yielded gold to the value of  8169,000,000.  A shipment of fifty tous of zinc  ore from the Noble Five mine near  Sandou, to the Oklahama smelter  netted 81,600.  Leach's survey party has gone  to Copper river to do some work on  the coal claims, twenty-five miles  from Aldermere.  Before a charter for a Board of  Trade can be obtained it is necessary to have 30 members, and a  population of 1,500 in the district  represented.  During the past fiscal year Canada imported 2,139,S44 pounds of  butter from New Zealand, and  about half that amount from tho  United States.  Tho Islander says that the chief  industry in Cumberland is cutting  wood, although it* is possble for the  mines there to produce 50,000 tons  of coal a month.  .The receipts of tho second annual  fair in Greenwood were 84,000. Of  that amount about 82,000 was  for subscriptions pub tip by the  citizens oUhe city.  ties in Canadian railway lines is  about    10,000,000,    according   to  statistics compiled by the Forestry  Branch of the Department of the  Interior.    The  average   life of a  tie; i.e., sever, years, could be pro-,  longed seventeen' years if proper  preservative treatment were adopted,  and an annual saving of 350  million  feet,   board   measure,   of  timber, could be effected.    This is  equivalent to three years'  cut of  one of the very largest mills in the  countiy.  While the initial expense of cre-  osoting would bring the cost per  tie from 5S to 93 cents it wonld  save Si,400,000 annually.  Since 1910 two timber-treating  plants have been established, treating, in 1911, 206,209 ties, or 1.5  per cent, of the total cut.  The number of ties purchased in  the Dominion iu 1911 was 13,6S3,-  770, an increase of 4,479,S0S, or  4S.5 per cent, over 1910.  The rapid development of railways in the Western provinces is  largely responsible for this increase.  Eighteen kinds of wood wore  used. Jack pine, with forty per  cent.; tamarack, with nineteen per  cent.; Douglas fir (used to a very  great extent in new electricliuos in  British Columbia) with fourteen  per cent., and hemlock, with twelve  per cent., were the leaders. A remarkable change is that of cedar,  in decreasing from forty per cent,  to 5.4 per cent, of the total.  A Suggestion  Prince Edward Island does nob  increase in population to any  marked extent.

Serious Condition Revealed  Facts which aro now  becoming  generally    known    in    connection  with tho recent provincial election  in Saskatchewan, reveal a condition  which ia gravely significant.    The  prostitution of the franchise which  took place in that  election   under  the direction of the  Liberal' Government in Saskatchewan, emphasizes the danger which exists where  the   electoral   machinery   is   controlled by men who may have  no  higher  purpose than   that   which  iuspired  those who  managed  the  Saskatchewan campaign in   behalf  of the Scott Government.     British  citizenship is nob the basis of the  franchise under the Liberal administration in Saskatchewan.  Placards were distributed in that  election declaring that it was not  necessary to be a naturalized citizen in order to vote in the election.  "It matters nob," said this extraordinary placard, "whether you  are an Indian or a Hottentot."  AIT that   was   required   of   these  was that they should vote for  the  The Province of B.

With all due respect to geniuses,  great souls and tlm whole company  of heroes, something ought to be  said for the miiltiLudo of those unknown souls who make, possible; 7  mean the people who appreciate  them.  These form the pedestal upon  which heroes stand, furnish the.  light for their tnreh, ami are to  them the breath of their undying  fame.  Would Goethe, have been great  without the man who found him  great.  Would Soiomon or Soei'ates  have, been dictators of the world's  wisdom without the nameless many  who could understand, if not all  their wisdom, at leant, that they  were wise? *  What would ("aepar or Charlemagne have, boon without the  huzzas of their eonlempoi-iiries and  the interested eyes of the thousands  who read of their exploits?  In due reference 'we may ask,  would the character of Jesus k-i  dominate the world unless the  souls of the obscure many had, in  a measure, appreciated him?  The compliment of the great man  is the great commons.  "To appreciate a work of  genius," said Poe, ''is to possess  all the genius by wliich the work  was produced."  Perhaps Chateaubriand stales the  case better: "Genius creates, taste  preserves. Taste is the. good sense  of genius. Without taste, genius  is only a sublime madness."  Genius in the one is useless nitii-  out tasto in the. many.  In the Far West  An English actor was a. member  of a company snow-hound in thc  Sierras while en route, from California bo the east. Before their brain  was pulled out of the drifts they  had been reduced to' eating the  coarse fare of the railroad laborers,  and got little, enough of that. So  that the.y all liad a magnificent  hunger ou when the, train reached  a small station at which there was  a res tan rant, and the. Englishman  was this first one to find a seat at  the table.  "Bring me in a hurry," he said  to the landlord, a, burly Western  man, "a, porterhouse si oak, .same  deviled kidneys, a brace of chops,  plenty of vegetables and two bottles  of Hass' bitter hecr.

One, which was par tic ui airy dangor-  oub and was an oxcelleut example of  the man's fearlessness, occurred in  1882. Thero was one ship plying between Cuba and New York wjhica  Donohue suspected. Ono day It arrived on a regular trip a.nd tlie detective boarded her. The customs man  knew every place on a ship whero  contraband stuff could be hidden, ibut  after a thorough search, he found  nothing.  .But Donohue was sure that there  were 100,000 cigars on that vessel and  he was determined to locate them.  Finally he noticed that although th������  firemen were free to go ashore, many  of .them were still on the ship, apparently enjoying his discomfiture.  Then Donohue had an idea.

But whllo he was bo-  low some one dapped down the iron  cover and the Inspector was trapped.  He yelled and pounded, but all ia  vain.

However while thero, is  time there is hope, and if the worst  comes to the worst we can sit down  to a meal of beans and bacon and  thank the Lord just the same.  zens in Saskatchewan, were killed  by the votes of those included  under the terms of the placard.  But the election law, wliich is the  law of Saskatchewan, says that in  order to vote one must be a British  subject of the full age of twenty-  one years.  It is feared in some quarters that  Japan will some day take British  Columbia. Japan is almost master  of the Pacific ocean, and is looking  for another place of settlement.  As the Kocky mountains make an  ideal barrier, British Columbia  will be an ideal place for the Japs  provided they can get it.  In the olden days tho Jewish  priests were in the habit of burning  animals on the altar as a peace  offering to God. The priests were  also wise in those days. They  would keep tho choice parts of the  animals for their own tables and  burn the inferior parts upon the  altar. This no doubt pleased God  just as much, and gave the priests  a chance to enjoy porterhouse  steaks at tho expense of the congregation.  Increases Rapidly  An excellent index to the prosperity of the country is the amount  of customs revenue. Increases denotes health and decrease indicates  decay. The customs department  of Canada had been administered  for years in ��������� a slip shod manner.  Business efficiency'was sadly lacking. Officers became careless and  tho 'country suffered. But the  change of government on September 21, 1911, swept out the old  regime and tlio appointment of  the Hon. Dr. Reid as the now minister introduced a new era.  It was not long before leaks were  plugged and officers of the service  feeling that circumstances had  changed becamo more earnest and  active. Dismissals were made.and  while the opponents of the new  minister endeavored to introduce  the plea of wrongful dismissal it  was found that in all cases the  country's interest wore placed before party.  But the effect of real business  methods was soon apparent, and  the Rip Van Winkles wero awakened. Tho real test is found in the  unprecedented increase for the first  six months of the present fiscal  year. Month by month the figures  piled up, and if the proportionate  increase is maintained the increaso  will soar past the thirty million  mark before the end of the year is  reached. Moro than that. Figures  just issued show that the increase  Beauty's Enemy  Miss Bille Burke, the noted actress, is writing a serii-s of letters in  several of the Canadian dailies. Jn  one recently she. dealt with the use  of.liquor by women.    She said:  "Just one first word. Liquor  not only ruins beauty, but it kills  respect.  ''The  other  evening   iu   one of  the  splendid   restaurants   of   New  York   I  saw a  number  of young  girls, noiio over e-igiil.i'i'n or twenty,  having what  they   thought was a  glorious    time.    There    wen!   six-  girls and  six men   somewhat older  than themselves, and the girls had  been drinking wino until their faces  were Hushed, their voices loud and  strident,   and  their manner  most  noticeable.    ITow    I    wanted    to  whisper to those thoughtless maids,  that if any of them wished to stand  well   with  any   one   of  the   men  present sho had better make soinc  excuse and go home  immediately.  "No man wants to see the woman  for  whom   he  cares  even slightly  under the  influence  of drink, and  tho man who will encourage a girl  to take a drink of liquor does  not  care what happens of her.    She is  nothing to him.  "Nothing will steal away your  good looks as will intoxicating  liquor. I have a friend who is  over fifty, and vvho^ when asked  the other day how she retained her  good looks, her youthful contours and expression, answered,  'In the first place, I never touch  spin tous liquor.' Not one woman  in the crowd about her could vie  with her in appearance, and not  one woman in the crowd who did  not think it necessary to occasionally at least sip a glass of wine. It  was an object lesson that lam sure  they will remember.  "Just   ono   last   word���������Liquor  m:iy oxhiliarato for the moment,  New Life Preserver.

CAMPBELL  Deputy Minister of Itallnays  and Canals.  A lofty aspiration flits through the  brain of most healthy men. Some as-  ptre to heights of poetry or art yet  untoucihed, some aspire to become  even more oratDricai than the incomparable Oicero; one man opined that  if ho could write the songs of a nation he didn't give a Teddy bear who  made the laws. This brings us to  Archibald WiBiaan Campbell, Depnty  Minister of Railway and ���������'��������� Canals, who  ls ���������content to let the lawmakers, songwriters, and so forth proceed and progress ad Mb., so long as he can help  to secure good roads for Canada. Ho  Is enthusiasts and consistent in this  desire. Years ago he was dubbed  "Good Roads" Campbell. It is a nickname that Is a credit to him, because  no man north of the 49th parallel  has done more to educate the people  to recognize the -value of good roads  than Mr. Campbell. He Is recognised  as <the greatest Irving authority In thda  Dominion on the subject. He does  not discriminate about roads; so long  as It is a road he knows the how to  build It Just now, of course, he is  principally interested In railroads.  "Good Roads" Compbell was born  ln WardsvlUe, Middlesex County, Ontario, in the year of grace 1863. Hte  parents were of good Scotch blood,  and kept a store in Wardsville.  Archibald WMMaim went first to tho  Public School in closest proximity to  the store, then he went to the Collegiate in closest proximity to the  Public School aforesaid. Then followed a postgraduate Collegiate course  in St Thomas, from whence he wont  to Toronto University to study civil  engineering. He graduated In 1886,  and from that year until 1800 he engaged in private practice as a civil  engineer in St Thomas. Then he accepted the poattton of City Engineer  hLltJ^?msa' "^ flHed the position  with diBitIngti!Whed success until 1896  It was at thia time the Ontario Gov^  ernment had hearkened unto many  agitations about the need for bettor  Toads^throughout the province.

When    a  short distance this side of Gilpin  the gentlemen  espied a big buck  deer leisurely trotting in the middle of the road a quarter of a mile  ahead of the car.    Mr. Gibson desired   a   close   inspection   of  tlio  animal, and turned on all tho reserve power in his machine.    In a  few seconds the car was within two  or three feet of the deer.    Then  the deer got a whiff of the gasoline  odor, and  he realized tliat it was  time to quicken bis pace,    Ahead  for two  miles was a  straight and  smooth road, with no break in the  high barb-wire fence that encloses  the highway.    The deer evidentally  knew that it  would  bo a race for  life,  and   the speed ho developed  has never been equalled on a race  track.    Ho kept this up for two  miles; and all this time the car was  a few feet behind him.    It was an  even race���������the deer was unable to  gain on the car, and the car could  not run down the animal.    At tho  ond of the two miles there was a  break in  tho fence,  and the deer-  bid adieu to his pursuers, and vanished in the darkness.

' tlio most exciting event in his life,  SAFE BOATS  In speaking of the two new  steamships tho Empress of Russia  and the Empress of Asia which tho  Canadian Pacific Railway is building for service on the Pacilic  Ocean between Canada and the  Orient, a C. P. R. ollicial remarked  recently tbat he felt justilicd in  saying that the two new boats  would be the safest vessels afloat.  "Iu preparing the plans of the  new   Empresses,"   he   remarked,  "wo took particular care to make  provision for all exigencies, and as  a  result the  boats aro as near to  being unsinkable as can   bo built.  The   new   Empresses   are   being  built   with   double   bottoms   and  watertight compartments, the latter being   numerous   and   closely  placed.   .-Ordinarily, if the ship is  designed' to float witli only   two  comparfcnients flooded, a sufficient  margin of safety is thought to havo  been allowed, but in the cases of  of tho ne!

Few women bathe properly with  hot water and soap, followed by a  cold spray, then a rubbing with a  coarse towel until a friction is produced which puts the body in a  glow.  Few women walk properly, in  the open with sonsiblo shoes and  comfortable corsets.  If women  did tho things daily  that stirred  their blood to quick  action,  they  would not bo white  and pasty of complexion and mind.  Few women eat properly of good  wholesome food correctly cooked.  A diet of oatmeal is a wonderful  cure for thick stagnant skin.  Perhaps nothing is more detrimental to a good complexion than  white bread and biscuits. Hence  tho ruddy complexion of tho Germans, who never oat any but brown  bread.  Give us live looking women. Get'  up in tho morning,move about. If  you cannot get out into the air for  a walk to stir your blood, then stir  it in some other way, by exercise  of some sort.  Do away with candy and pastry.
