Freeland,     Government     mining
engineer,  on Tuesday evening in

qnite a large gathering of miners,
prospectors and others were present.     Mr.   Freeland  opened   his
lecture with a summary of his 1921
lecture after which he gave a brief
history of how   the Yukon gold
fields were discovered, describing
with drawings on the blackboard
how, why and where gold should
be looked for.   He said that it is
seldom' if ever the case that placer
gold is evenly distributed throughout all  the layers of any placer
claim,   as  nor doubt most of yon
know.    Seldom indeed,  is it distributed with regularity in any one
of  such   layers.     Experience   in
working gravel banks has shown
that running water deposits- the
gold according to its own laws and
not only aB the miner would have
it.   In some very high banks the
top layer is almost entirely barren
of gold and in other instances this
layer is of fair grade; sometimes it
contains pay from the grass roots,
occasionally    nuggets   have   been
found  in   it.    The  intermediate
layer or layers between the top and
bottom" gravel may yield well or
poorly; very commonly they are
richer than the top gravel and often
pay handsomely; rarely do  they
excel!  the bottom layer in value.
The bedrock,dr. bottom layer ie almost always tlie richest.   So very

true value of a placer claim can
never be known until the lower
stratum of gravel has- been examined. Such being the case, we will
do well to investigate placer
grounds, such as Rock Creek,
where bedrock was reached only
once, wher the surface was smooth
and no pay values were likely to
be found. The bedrock itself
should never be neglected; often
it contains better pay than the
gravel resting on it. Sometimes
the bedrock is soft and rotten, and
the gold sinks into it and is bidden
from view. Hunting for gold in
jiheVcrevices.uof ^tfae - bedrock -is -a
well known occupation to. placer
miners. The upturned edges of
slate and-schist lying crosswise to
the.course of the stream form bar-"
riers or riffles that will hold the
gold... The depth to which gold is
found hi bedrock" varies from 6
inches to.5 feet." When there is,
in a, deposit of gravel an impervious layer,, such as a clay.seam,
this/.will, arrest the downward
working of the gold and above it a
paystreak* will be formed. There
may be several of these clay seams
at different intervals with intervening, gravel beds, one below the
other, each overlain by its pay
streak. : These false beds of;clay
have been laid down "by. ..water at
different intervals,' which has given
the gold a chance to concentrate
ori each, - ' -"...- '[' 7' ���

the only difference being that the
rock contains platinum instead of
gold. So far as we have been able
to find out the olivine rocks can-
not be worked profitably for platinum, bat the placers have afforded
considerable quantities of that
metal. No high grade veins of
gold ore have been found near
Boundary creek as far as I know
where ������ placering was done, but
there are small gold values in the

The Evolution Of An Empire
Tii*- '���.irucMiu-p ul' ilie Llrilish Kmpire iind tho conception of empire, entcr-
tiiinod by the ISritish people, both at. home ami abroad, has long been a puzzle
Lo other nations and peoples. With thecexception of the British themselves,
people have been unable, as a rule, to harmonize the idea of several nations,
each enjoying autonomous government, and to all intents and purposes quite
Independent, constituting a compact and united Empire.
Possibly nowhere in lhe. world was there a more mistaken conception of
the unity and strength of (he British Empire entertained than in Germany
priov to 11)14. Intelligent and presumably well informed German writers'
confidently predicted that the first serious war in which Great Britain was
Involved would he a signal for Canada, Australia and South Africa to throw
off what they termed "the British yoke."' Equally confident were the predictions that India would blaze into revolt, that. Irishmen would rebel almost
to a man, and that Egypt would quickly drive the British there into the sea.
Th*s loosely constituted British Empire would, they declared, quickly fall to
But the Great War had not really begun before it became manifest to thc
world that the British Empire was one and indivisible, many times stronger,
and more united than any of the empires of old held together by force and
great armies.      Instead of repudiating their allegiance to the British crown,
��� Canada and Australia poured out their wealth and their manhood voluntarily
and enthusiastically in support of their common Empire. The few discontented ones in South Africa were quickly quelled, and South Africa proceeded to render equally valuable aid to the Empire. India provided hundreds
of thousands ot soldiers and untold wealth, and brought about the downfall
of "Turkey in Mesopotamia and Palestine. The Irish, as usual, contributed
many of the most valiant soldiers in the British armies.
With the ending of the war, the peaceful evolution of the British Empire proceeds apace. By the free act of the British Governmnt and Parliament, Ireland is constifutd a Free State within the Empire; the protectorate
over Egypt is brought to an end and the ancient land of the Pharoahs granted
autonomous government; step bj* step the rights and powers of self-govern/
ment are being freely given to India just as rapidly as the'people are capable ,
of exercising those rights and powers.
Some  unthinking people who  fail   to understand  the genius  of British
. administration profess to see in these things a gradual weakening of the Empire.      They are  sadly  mistaken. . ��� These  developments are   signs  of thc,

Farmers Save Millions,
Save Fifty to Sixty Millions Annually
Through Experimental Farm
Starting with four Tarms and five
divisions of work in 3SSG, the Dominion Experimental Farms system has
expanded till at the present time
there are throughout Canada, 22 Experimental Farms, 7 Sub-Stations, 2
Tobacco Stations and oyer 100 Illustration Farms. As the result of experimental work carried out under
the Federal Department of Agricul
aire, the farmers of Canada save from
fifty to sixty millions annually.
This was the fulfillment o�� that
which Amos had predicted in the days
of Jeroboam II. at a time when the
nation, was at the height of its prosperity. The northern kingdom was
ruled by 19 kings, all of Avhim were
wicked. Their wickedness was not
because of lack of information or opportunity, but in spite of it. God
promised the first king His blessing
if he would be loyal to Him. Jeroboam departed from God until the
apostasy thus begun continued downward to the end. In the reign of
Hoshea, the last king, the king of
Assyria came and besieged Samaria
and carried the children of Israel cap-
five to Assyria, from which they never returned.
U.    The    Sins    Which Caused Their
Doom (vv. 7-18).
1. Conformed lo the ways of the
heathen (vv. 7-9). God had commanded them not to follow in the
ways of the heathen, but those
Israelites, instead of maintaining lives
of separation, secretly did that which
was displeasing lo God. Secret sins
just as surely as open sins bring ruin,
for all things are naked and open to
Him with whom wo have to do. One
may maintain his reputation before
men while practicing sins, but ruin
will sooner or later overtake him.
Even though God had cast out the
heathen for practicing these sins, the
Israelites followed in. their ways, God
demands separation (II. Cor. 6:17).
2. Served idols (vv. 10-12). They
not only compromised by "walking, iu
the statutes of the heathen," but
worshiped their gods. It was not a
long step from following in the statutes v of the heathen to worshiping
their gods. JJefore they worshiped
idols they cast off the true God.
Idolatry came in because the race did
not .wish to^ retain God in its affection
(Rom. :i:21-23). ��� People, today are
worshiping idols because they have
first cast off the authority of the living God. Man is a worshipful being.
When he ceased to worship the true
God, he worships cother gods. Neutral ground is impossible.
3. They were rebellious (vv. 13-15).
God by his prophet had said unto
them, "Turn ye from your evil ways
and keep my commandments/' biit
they stubbornly refused His testimony, even rejected His statutes.
God, in love, tried to save them. He
sent some of the noblest and best

Signature of
Making Speech Visible
Principle of New Invention is Similar
to Phonograph
A wonderful new invention called
the Lioretgraph enables one to make
accurate tracings upon permanent records of actual vibrations of sounds in
articulated speech. The instrument
is worked by motor power. When a
vowel sound is'uttered the room becomes full of vibrations, and ea^i different sound gives vibrations of a different shape. In the presence of the
Lioregraph a person saying "Ah"
would record upon paper a wobbly,
symmetrical line. The principle involved is similar to that of the phonograph but, by means of delicate mechanism, the effects of speech are enlarged an enormous number of times.
It is believed that with this new invention, aided by mathematical formulae already in use, it will be possible ultimately to read and translate
any foreign or unknown tongue of
which these lines are the record.

Our Canadian winters are exceedingly hard on the health of little ones.
The weather is often so severe that
the mother cannot take the little ones
out for an airing. The consequence
is that baby is confined to overheated, badly ventilated rooms; lakes cold
and becomes cross and peevish.
Baby's Own Tablets should bc given
to keep the little ones healthy. They
are a mild laxative which regulate the
stomach and bowels and thus prevent
colds. The Tablets are sold by medicine dealers or by mail at 25 cenlsoa

Too many young housekeepers will
attempt to make* most anything except bread. Yet, the making of a
couple of loaves of bread is far less
complicated than the making of even
a simple cake.
Suppose you try to make a couple
of loaves. You will want two tin
loaf-pans. These will cost. about
fifteen cents each. You will like to
have a large mixing bowl and the
usual half-pint measuring cup and
standard tea and tablespoons.
In using yeast, follow directions.
Remember that yeast is a plant. In
order to live and grow it requires
food, air, heat, moisture. Like the
mushroom, it requires no light. In
growing, yeast gives off bubbles of
gas, and this gas makes the bread
rise. If you pour boiling water on
your cake of yeast instead of the lukewarm water the recipe calls for, you
will kill it just as surely as you would
kill a delicate little fern. And once
killed, it will not make the bread rise.
To make two loaves of white bread,
into the mixing bowl put one level
teaspoon of salt, the same quantity
of sugar and half a tablespoon of butter or lard. Pour half a cup of hot
water over these ingredients.
When the butter is melted, pour in
half a cup of cold water. Stir half
a cake of compressed. yeast' in two
tablespoons of lukewarm water until
it may he poured. Test the liquid in
the mixing bowl to ascertain if it is
just lukewarm. This may be done
by letting a drop fall on the tender
part of the wrist. : If right in temperature, add the yeast mixture. Then
beat in enough flour to make a batter.
Beat this for several minutes-to help
incorporate the air necessary for the
growth of the yeast. Then add
enough more flour to make a dough
stiff enough to be handled.   .-
Toss on a lightly floured board, and
with, floured hands ���lmead in enough
flour so that when the dough is pressed in with the linger it quickly rebounds, .as does a rubber,ball. Roughly, about three minutes' kneading will
he required for this quantity. About
one-fourth cup of flour will be.required-for'kneading in after the dough is
on the board.
Run the water over the dough ball
Tor a second and then place it back
in the mixing bowl. Set the bowl
into a <ijsh pan of warm water.and\
place a clean, warm cloth over all.
Let rise either over night or about
seven hours during the day. ' Then
reknead, shape into, loaves and place
in well greased pans. . Let rise in a
warm���not hot���place for about half
an hour. -Bake in a'hot oven about
forty-five, minutes,' turning - the loaves
���frequently, so that they may- brown
"evenly. Greasing over "the top of the
loaf before baking aids in giving the
much" desired crisp, brown crust.     "
.The-first-.mixiiig. .takes .about ten
minutes after one has a little practice, and the second kneading and
shaping takes about five minutes."V-

The After Effects Often More Serious
Than the Disease Itself
No reasonable ^precaution to avert,
an attack of influenza should be spared. The disease itself often proves
fatal and its after effects among those
who are spared, make .the life of.the
victim one Of almost constant misery.
Ask almost any of those who have
been attacked by this trouble what
their present condition of health is
and most of them will answer: "Since
���I.had the -influenza I have never been"
fully, well.".. This trouble leaves behind it a persistent weakness of tho
limbs, shortness .of-breath, bad digestion, palpitation of the heart and a
tired feeling;after even slight "exertion.-.. -This is due to.tjje thin-blooded
condition in which the-patient is left
after the fever arid influenza have subsided. This condition will continue
until the blood is built,up again, and
for building up_ ��� the blood and
strengthening the nerves nothing can
equal��� a fair'treatment with Dr. Williams'- Pink Pills. ' .The value of this
"medicine in cases of this kind is
shown   by . the ^statement of Mr. Ed-
.ward J. McGuire, Pembroke, Ont.-,
who says:���"In the fall of 191S I ���was
attacked .with the influenza���and not
in a mild form either. I was confine/1 to my room for three" weeks,
and although the influenza subsided I
did not regain my health. As a matter; of .fact..I...seemed; to be growing
weaker, was subject to fainting spells
arid my feet and ankles were badly
swollen. The doctor told me that
my condition had developed-,'-into..'a
serious case of anaemia, and although
I was under his care for over two
months 1 was not improving in anyway. At this stage one of my
friends advised me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I was.-loth to
do so, as I began to. think my ' case
hopeless. However, I was finally
persuaded to try them; and by the
time I had used two boxes there was
no doubt they were-helping me.. , .1
continued taking the pills until I had
used a dozen-boxes," when I found that
every symptom, of the trouble: had.

Second In The

Good Work Inaugurated by the Canadian Blind  Babies' Home
About eighteen months ago I addressed an "Open Lettet to the Generously Disposed," making an appeal
in behalf of blind babies, and conveying to readers an intimation that the
enterprise commenced sometime before by the late Mr. T. Hope Churchill, for which he had made sundry
collections, would bo carried on, and
that a charter, without stock subscription, would be obtained. This has
been done, and the Canadian Blind
Babies' Home- Association has been
incorporated, with  the  following:
Directors���Hon. Martin Bun-ell,-
Hon. President; Hon. J. G. Turriff,
President; A. H. TFitzsimmons, Vice-
President; Edward Grand, Secretary;
C. Blackelt Robinson, Cor. Secretary;
J. P. McKinley, Treasurer; Lt.-Col.
Whitton, M.D., It. H. Campbell,
Thomas Mulvey, K.C., A. E. Provost,
VV. TLyle lteid, A. J. Freiman, Charles
If. Pinhey, C.E., W. J. Cairns and Tom
Trustees-���C. IT. Pinhey, C.E.,
Thomas Mulvey, K.C., A. J. Freiman.
Legal"Adviser���John L. MacCracken,
K.C. Bankers���Royal .Bank of Canada.     Auditor���A. A. Crawley, C.A.
The objects pf this institution are���
"To provide a home and refuge for
Baby and Infant Blind; to provide
Free Scientific Care, Training and
Maintenance; to save the lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such
service, perish every year; and to return thesu little ones to their parents,
at school age with normal, healthy
bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed
Child Welfare Service. Careful cn-
'quiry-at: the Government Offices in
the various Provinces reveals the fact
that there are - at the present time
nearly 250 Infant Blind in the DoTnin-
ion. ' Nothing has yet been done for
those helpless little ones. "In the
United States, 18 years ago, the first
home was opened in New York City;
they have now homes in 13 States,
all doing excellent work. -In England, some time ago, the late Sir Arthur Pearson" organized' "Sunshine
House," Chorley Wood, for- Blind
Babies, and he claimed that it was
the only one "in the. British Empire.
Let us -have, tlie second iri"Canada.
To^reach this worthy end money is
urgently-. required.- Firty thousand
dollars is the" present-objective of the
Board.) While the first home is to
be located in Ottawa it will take in
the Baby Blind from every Province,
so that this appeal for funds will be
Dominion-wide, .and an early and generous response 'is confidently expected. ' Cheque's" should" 'be "made -payable, to the Canadian Blind Babies
Home Association. All remittances
will' be promptly -acknowledged.
* If" you happen" to know of a Blind
Child under six-years of age, be good
enough-to furnish us-with address of
parents, so.that we may.get in touch
with such cases.

Farmers to Gain $20,000,000
Advance in Price of Wheat Has Good
Effect on Business
Western Canadian farmers, on the
basis- of recent advances in wheat
prices, stand to realize about $20,000,-
000 more out of the 1921 crop than appeared possible at the time the slump
in prices had reached the- lowest level
in December. Wheat prices now are
approximately 35 cents a bushel higher than .-the low level figure of the
closing month of 1921. There are
about 70,000,000 bushels of wheat still
in the hands of farmers to be sold, it
is estimated.' The advance' in price,
which is world-wide, will benefit farmers who have not disposed of their
crops. .. The additional wealth available,- "if the. price is maintained or if
it advances still more, ' will have a
splendid effect on conditions throughout Western Canada.    " -     '������    ; ���
