Canada's Interest
In World Conditions
Sis years have elapsed since Germany threw down thc gauntlet to
civilization and embarked upon her
mad enterprise to dominate the
world. Almost two years havc passed since thc signing of thc armistice
by which Germany acknowledged a
humiliating defeat and madc an abject surrender.
Yet the world is still in a state of
political upheaval, with battles raging
on many fronts and a state of war
existant between nations of millions
of people. Russia and Poland are.
at war; Greece and Turkey arc still
fighting, with the Greek armies advancing right'in to the heart of Turkey in Europe; British, French, Belgian aud United Statcs armies are
yet in occupation of a large part of
Germany; large bodies of Britisii and
French troops are constantly on
guard in Mesopotamia and Syria. A
recent visitor to Greece reports that
martial law still prevails there, and
that all the old war regulations and
restrictions arc in full force, and that
thousands of Greeks arc in thc army
who havc been   there since 1912 and
cannot get out. Tltc United Statcs
is still technically at war with Germany and Austria.
Are these things of any vital interest   to   Canada,   and   have   they   any
bearing upon    Cana.dian    conditions?

unsettled conditions exist,- there is an.

ycars more thau sufficient to meet
thc increased cost of living, and lliey
have been indulging iu thc. purchase
of luxuries. This increased demand
for luxuries has led to a great demand for labor to produce such luxuries, and such labor has been drafted from industries primarily devoted
to thc production of necessities. For
example, tens of thousand of skilled
artisans formerly engaged in the
manufacture of articles of actual
necessity are now manufacturing
automobiles by the" thousand. As an
inevitable result conditions are created which bear hardly on thc less
The lesson for Canada is to get
back as quickly as possible to essentials; to curtail thc production and
purchase of luxuries and to speed up
on essential necessities. In the second place, it will be the part of wisdom for the individual Canadian to
conserve his earnings as far as possible, to save and thereby serve, not
only his,,country, but himself.

Australia's First
German Capture
Pilot Who Captured the First German Boat for Australia
Pilot Easton, who went from
Melbourne to Ncw Zealand to join
H. M. S. Renown, which carried the
Prince of Wales to thc Antipodes, is
a well-known figure in Australia.
���He figures in a war story which has
just been released by thc censorship.
Some days aftcr war broke out a big
German steamer ��� from Hamburg,
whicli had no wireless, was signaled
oft the Melbourne Heads, and Easton
went out to her and brought her in.
He said nothing to the German captain about the war. When thc ship
was inside, off Portsea, and Easton
could see a naval launch approaching,
said to the captain, 'We'll have to
half-speed here." Thc German, who
knew the port well, risked, "Why,
pilot, why?" and hc fixed an anxious
eye on the launch. "Because Britain
and Germany are at war," said Easton. The German, furious at bcing
trapped, as he called it, was for turning around again and running for thc
entrance. But Easton pointed out a
fort to him and assured him that the
guns there were trained on the steamer. Soothe German succumbed, but
his manner toward Easton wTas vcry
threatening. Five minutes later the
Australian bluejackets scrambled on
board. Thc steamer is now part of
Australia's merchant fleet. ��� Melbourne. Argus.     -'-���"..

Thc ark was a symbol of the presence of God in Israel. It represented
God's throne, the place from which
hc communicated his will to the people through the priest (Ex. 25:22;
Psalms 80:1).
I. David's Unsuccessful Attempt to
Bring  up   the   Ark(vv.l-S).
This is an example of the wrong
way of doing a right thing. That thc
ark of thc Lord of Hosts, thc symbol
of God's presence, should be brought
to thc very centre of the nation's lifc
was a decision worthy of all praise.
It surely met God's approval. David
gathered together the representative
men of thc nation in order that the
movement might bc a national one.
That David was sincere in this measure cannot be doubted, but he was
hasty and inconsiderate. God had
expressly decreed that thc Kohathitcs
should bear the ark upon thcir shoulders (Num. 4: 14, 15; 18:3). For
them to place it' even upon a cart
was a positive violation of God's
commandment. Though David was
sincere his sincerity did not atone for
disobedience to God's word. Thc
dictum that it matters little what you
do, just so you arc honest and sincere, is one of thc Devil's blackest
lies. It mattered much in this case,
and always'docs. David cannot bc
excused on hc groutnd of ignorance,
because he had the opportunity to
know. God cannot be blamed for
man's ignorance when he has given
him the law and the ability to understand it.
II. God Vindicates His Law and Holiness.
The people were very joyful as
they moved on toward Jerusalem
with thc ark, but suddenly therc was
!a stop to thcir jubilant voices and
music. At some rough place in the
road the oxen stumbled and Uzzah,
anxious for the precious freight on
his cart, reached forth his hand to
steady it. This resulted with his being stricken with death. Ignorance
decs nol makc a m .\< immune from
the death which is iii thc. touch cf
a heavily charged electric wire; neither docs it in thc case of the violation of God's laws. Even thosc who
were designated by the Lord to cany
the ark wcrc not allowed to touch it
with their hands. Since thc ark was
God's dwelling place among men,
the j' needed, to know that hc was
holy. ; ' God's judgment was severe
r.but" riot morc so than thcy deserved.
This awful visitation-of just.judgment
struck tcrror to David. Well'if might
-for-he'was in the path, of disobedience. The Lord's presence has ho
terror for those who'obey his word.

The Rolling' Stone
Old Saying About the Rolling Stone
And the Moss is Thrown in
The Discard
Ofvthc many popular fallacies to
which thc work), still clings ��� and
thosc persons who live a comparatively quiet live arc among its most
ardent advocates ��� none is given
greater credence than set forth in
thc proverb which tells us "a rolling
stone gathers no moss." To many it
seems still as great a truth as it was
thought to be when that forgotten
sage of long ago noted the smoothness of the, stones tumbled by the
surf., along Hellenic shores, and like
the objects from which he drew his
figure, set the saying rolling down
thc  centuries.
And then one of these long pitied
rolling stones crossed an ocean and
discovered America. And a Htlle
more than two months of rolling to
the West, he gathered more moss
than all the rest of thc world had
picked up in as many centuries.- F'ol-
lowcd the Pilgrim Fathers to gather
still more moss or, or as Washington
Irving has observed, to completely
controvert the time-honored proverbr
Since that day a great portion of
thc world's peoples have been busy
rolling, proving the utter fallacy of
the saying." Today-half. the globe

Happy .Incidents   on   His   Western
Trip are Recited
"Westward with the Prince of
Wales," by W. Douglas Newton, is
an intensely human record of a memorable journey."" There is a.wealth
of detail which, as it concerns the
most popular character in Great Britain, cannot be looked upon'as mere
literary padding. The Prince's
'sporting and athletic proclivities
seem to have been the chief source
of his great reception and popularity
in thc "West," and Mr. Newton enables us to see His Royal Highness'
as an angler, a baseball pitcher and
as  a "broncho" rider.
As an angler, thc Prince did not
meet with much success, on account
of the lateness of thc season, and the
man who caught thc most fish was
not an expert angler, bcing none
other than thc official photographer,
who was vastly pleased, not to say
amused, when His Royal Highness
said to him: "Look here, don't you
realize I'm the onc to do that? You're
taking my place in the programme?"
Greater success seems to havc
crowned the Prince's initiation into
the myslcris of baseball. At Edmonton he took part in an inter-local
team, and the author relates:
. "Walking to the diamond, he
equipped himself in authentic manner with floppy, jockey-peaked cap
and a ruthless glance, took his stand
as a pitcher, and delivered two balls.
I don't know whether thcy , were
stingers or swizzcrs, or whajjsver the
syncopated phraseology of the game"
dubs thcin, but they were matters of
great admiration.
"Having led to thc undoing (I
hope, for that was his task) of someone, the Prince then'joined thc audience. He chose not thc best seats
but tiie popular ones, for he sat on
thc grass among thc 'bleachers,' and
when one. has sat out of the shade
in the hot prairie sun, one knows
what 'bleachers' means. This sporting littic interlude was immensely
popular, and the Prince left Edmonton with the reputation of being a
true 'fan' and.'a real good feller.'"
Perhaps thc most sporting and
popular of th'c Prince's athletic
achievements, not only1 from thc
point of view of the "wcst.ii-but also
froni that of his own country, wa.s
his riding of a "broncho." Apropos
of this incident, Mr. Newton stales:
"Saskatoon,   the   distributing ,. city
for thc middle of Saskatchewan, was ;
to give lhc Prince a memorable day. |
It was'here that he obtained his first!
insight into -the lifc and  excitements
of the. cowboy.
- "Tlic. Prince arrived iu the town at
noon, "and drove- through- 'the
streets lo the park." .and" university
grounds for .the reception ceremonies.- '- -Upon - his/ arrival, at' the
ground, 'cattlemen', rode, beforc ' tlic

"Above thc piping of the-birds had
sounded the song of a violin, played
by a master-hand. Sweetly the
strains came floating 'to him, as he
listened, and, gripping a tall sapling,
he stood, head bowed, lips forming
voicclcssly" the words of thc refrain :���
"Sweet and low, sweet and low,
Wind of thc western sea,
Low, low, breathe  and  blow,   ���
Wind  of  the  western  sea!
Over thc rolling waters go,
Comc   from    thc    dying -moon,   and
Blow him again to me;
While, my little onc, while my pretty
*     one sleeps."
It was an old song which .Daddy
Farney had taught him and the girl;
thc only one the old man had ever
been known to sing. The lad caught
hi6.breath () quickly .When he" looked
up there wcrc tears coursing down
liis cheeks. , Slowly he approached
thc house. Seated beneath a trailing
wild-hop vine hc found Willow.
She laid thc violin across her
knees and looked slowly up at him
as  he approached.
"What'd you come, back fer?" hc
asked   abruptly.
"Fer you,"  shc answered.
"Well,   1   ain't  goin'."
She laid the violin gently down
upon a block and came for.ward to
where he stood with head bowed,
fingers fumbling thc lock of his rifle.
"L ain't comin' fer two reasons,"
he said as she placed her hands on
his souldcrs'. "Fust is, I've got
"somcthin' important to do 'cross thc
tamaracks. Second is, I ain't goin' to
put Dorkin to no more, trouble, on
my account. He's been right good
to us, an'^I ain't goin' to make him
sorry fer  it." ^
"He says hc wants you' up there
in thc Preserve, Dannie."
"That's all right,tan'* it's mighty
like him to say it, but it's no good,
Wilier; I can't go. You go on back
and say ^mucli obliged ter him feime. I'm too-damn no-count to do it
fer myself. "Tqll him how I mu'cd to
sneak off without,thankin'- him."     .
The girl looked at Wm with big
troubled eyes. To her this hot-hcart-
cdJad, with whom shc had been reared was mores than mere "brother; he
was pal, companion, a part of her-,
self; and she alone knew and understood him, now that Daddy Farucy
was gone. The grief and loneliness
that wcrc gnawing at his heart were
also her grief and loneliness. Her
hands tightened on his shoulders' and
her lips "opened as though to speak,
but no words came.
_ If you understand the forest, you
havc learned that the kindred of thc
wild arc closely bound together. Affection, which in the civilized world
is. a beautiful thing, in thc wilderness
is a sublime thing. Unbreakable as
thc fibre of the poplar, strong and
enduring as the tissue of the oak. is
the love of onc member of the "forest
family for thc other; only, iike thc
interlacing roots of the trees, it lies
buried from the gaze of thc callous
"Wilier," spoke the lad, at length,
shaking* himself erect, "you go back
to the Preserve, an" leave mc be alone
here.   If I'm ever goin' ter be a man,
I guess maybe the time's cpme. ' I'm
goin' ter stay here on our grounds ���

"An'1 I'm goin' ter see that thcy'stays

girl stood strait and talk beforc him,
and spoke quietly:���
"If hc clone it, Dannie, if you are

you've got to kill him; but you've got
to be right kccrful;'cause he's goin'

He turned, with a smile, and half
raised his hands as though to draw
her. to him. ."Wilier)"'hc said huskily, "you bc a right sort of sister.
I was half "scared to tell ye, but I'm
glad you feel that way about it. If

looked away through the darkening
forest and shrugged��� "What then,
Wilier?" -
i "Dannie," she cried, lifting her
hands above her head, ,fif he kills
you, if he as "much as tries, I'll kill
him. I swear I'll do it. Oh, don't
you believe mc.   Don't you, Dannie?"
Hc caught her as she swayed and
for a moment he held her against
his breast, his drawn face pressed
against her hair. Up above thcir
heads an oriole twittered and hung
head downward, his crimson breast
cutting tiny rainbows against the
dark green foliage of tlie trees.  ���
The girl drew away, and still holding his hand, led him across to the
doorway of thc cabin. '
"You set down, Dannie," shc said.
"I'm goin' to play you somethin'1 on
thc fiddle; jes a ltittlc song-tune to
cheer you up an' makc you fcrgct;
then I'm goin' to get your supper."
He sank down on thc doorstep and
seating herself on the block thc girl
picked up the fiddle. The old dog
limped up and stretched himself between thcm, looking from onc to the
other w'lh  grave,  inquiring  eyes.
The girl played, and as shc played
the song birds grew silent. Swiftly
stretched the evening shadows. A ray
of spun gold, lined with purplish
spray, slipped down tli rough the
chinks of the trees and touched the
facc of thc bush-lad, huddled in thc
doorway. The giil caught thc gleam
and smiled tenderly. She saw the
bluc-vcincd lids sweep over*the weary
eyes, and heard the long sigh of surrender as he gave himself up to the
sleep hc had not known since the
dawning of thc tragedy which was to
stand out up.on his lifc.
And so shc 'played on, and thc swift
Northern twilight dropped like a cowl
and from thc distant lake there'came
thc voices of thc diving water-fowl.
The_ stars wcrc blossoming in the
sky wh.cn shc at length rose and
slipped quietly past the sleeper into
the cabin. Silently shc lit the candle on the rough table, then sinking
on "her knees before the skin-covered
couch shc let thc full tide of her grief
have sway in tears.

No Present Chance.
Of Cheaper Food
Prof. .G.'.I.   Christie of -Purdue  University Reviews Agricultural   ���
Situation in U. S.
In a statement with regard to. the
agricultural situation, Prof. G. I.
Christie of Purdue University, who
is a graduate of the Ontario Agricultural College, says: "The people of
the United Statcs are demanding
automobiles, musical instruments,
jewelry, fine clothes and recreation
morc than they- wish food. . Thesc
people are willing to pay _high prices
for such articles that laboring men
engaged in the manufacture of these
materials may be paid wages two,
three and five times as great as the
farmer can afford  to pay.
"Cheap land and cheap labor havc
gone," continues Professor Christie,
"and so the last of cheap food has
been seen. From now on consumers
must, pay the price that allows^hc
farmer a fair return for liis labor
and his investment." A conference
of the members of the agricultural
staff of, Purdue University was held
to consider phases of the present agricultural situation. Many reports received, from thc various counties in
,thc: state are alarming and show an
unsettled condition.
��� Thc statement concludes: ."Food
is absolutely necessary���more than a
hundred millions of people -in thc
United Statcs must be fed, while in
addition, many millions in Europe
must hav.e food from American farms
���people of the cities must realize
that farmers must have a fair price
for tlicir products. Cheap land and
cheap labor have gone and so thc
last of cheap food has been seep.
From now on consumers must pay
a price that will give a fair return for
the farmer's labor and also for his
investment. Under the conditions, if
wheat was worth $2.20 per bushel in
1917, thc crop of 1920 should bring
not less  than $3.
/ "If corn was worth eighty cents
in 1914, thc 1920 crop should -return
$1.75 to $2 per bushel. Prices* for
other crops, for livo stock, dairy and
poultry, should bc increased accordingly. Food production should bc
maintained, but this can only bc hoped for when farmers a/c assured of
reasonable prices. The situation demands the serious and careful consideration of all thc people. The farmer
should go ahead and do thc b-'sf possible tinder the conditions."
Junior Farmer A, Big Factor
Boys   and   Girls   Do   Their   Part   In
Empire Building
Some persons, perhaps, may look
upon boys' and girls' club work as
bcing of somc worth, but arc not
particularly impressed with its value,
nor optimistic about its possibilities.
Probably a lack of definite knowledge
of the extent of such work is the
reason. The following extract from
President Willis E. Johnson's inauguration address at Brookings, S. D.,
recently, discloses the fact that the
boys' and girls' club work alone has
attained such proportions as to bc a
matter of state pride. It shows that
boys and girls, when given thc chance
can play tlicir part in Empire building.
The boys and girls iu the pig clubs
of South Dakota produced last year
over onc, million dollars' worth of
pure-bred registered pigs. It was.
some work to furnish the money and
thc little pigs for such an undertaking, and this-was "only one-project
of a single department of the division
of extension. . A million dollars'
worth of pigs^-bctter -than a million
dollars' worth of pure-bred pigs produced, sold, and kept, for thc most

Where Pontius
Pilate Reigned
Low Production
And High Wages
Production Has Not Increased in
Proportion to Wage
An exchange says: "Higher wages
should mean high production; low
production and high wages cannot
exist together." The truth of this
statement may bc questioned because
much of our present difficulty is due
to thc fact that production has not
increased in proportion to wage advances. But the end is not yet.
Buildings are not bcing erected,
homes are not being built, railways
are not bcing constructed, and in
many parts farmers are refusing to
assume thc risk of food production
because they have to pay so much
higher wages for so much less work.
All of which goes to prove that "low
production and high wages cannot
exist .together."    -
Colonel Storrs,   Graduate    of   Cambridge, is New Governor
- Of Jerusalem '.   ��
The office of governor of Jerusalem
once occupied by Pontius Pilate, is
now held by Col. Ronald Storrs, a
graduate of Cambridge University,
and son of the Dean of Rochester
College,  England.
His task is one to test the administrative ability of any man. Jerusalem
is "a city of disunions, where, \yhat-
ever may come of the future, for the
moment, Zionists and Arabs are passionately divided, and to steer a just
path between thcm and induce them
to join him on that path is thankless
It is to that task, however, that he
chiefly devotes himself. Twice a
week he has meetings of his favorite
pro-Jcrusalwii society, when French,
Italians, British, Americans, Rabbis,
i Zionists, leaders, commercial men of
standing and others who are in any
way prominnent in the life of the city
arc brought together and in the
course of debate, led to sec that they
have in common a single citizenship.
His motto as governor is, 'unify and
bc friends."
Colonel Storrs was onc^of thc
prime movers in thc establishment of
an independent Arab kingdom. He is
38 years old. '
"Got to Live by the Sea"
Earl Beatty on Vital Factor of Sea
"We came into being'by the sea.
By the sea we have existed and in
the future we have got to live by the
sea." /������ '
These were Earl Beatty's stirring
words iri returning thanks at Glasgow
for the hospitality of_ the city. The
navy, he declared, asked for critism,
they were not afraid of criticism, but
they asked that it should not be destructive, but constructive. . (Applause.) The task in front of those
who administered the-mavy at the
present day was a great one, and he
laid down the doctrine that sea power today was an csscntiaLfor thc security and prosperity of thc Empire
rtas it ever was. The navy had been
named the "Silent Service" because
to say anything was "not opportune.
But today it was opportune. The
fleet in commission today represented
thc minimum compatible with superiority and supremacy of the seas.
Therc were critics who said we must
have ships which could disappear
under the surface onc minute and be
lost in thc clouds the next. (Laughter.) Hc dared say those critics
were right, but the time for such
ships was not, and he disagreed with
thc statement that the day of thc
capital ship had passed. The capital ship was still the unit on which
the sea power of the Empire was
built. Nothing had been devised by
thc critics, outside of a few windy
paragraphs in the newspapers to take

Lease Tar Sands
On Athabasca
More Than 1,900 Acres Are Granted
To General Lindsay
Nineteen hundred and twenty acres
of tar sand rights in the province of
Alberta have been leased, to Gen.
William Lindsay, upon . specified
terms and conditions. From the tar
sands of Alberta���which arc known
to exist by billions of tons along the
Athabasca River���it is estimated that
great quantities of gasoline, kerosene,
naptha, bituiffeu, tar, lubricating and
fuel oils can bc obtained. "Representations were made to the department
of the interior by Gen. Lindsay that
as a result of thc investigation and
research which has _l>ccn conducted
for hini-acd'his"associalcs; a successful process appears to havc been evolved for extraction from the lar
sands, on a commercial basis, of thc
oil, bitumen and other hydro-carbons
which thcy contain.
Thc lease of tar sand rights has
therefore been granted to General
Lindsay to permit a thorough test to
bc made of thc process mentioned.
place to live in," Winston Churchill,
minister of war, declared in an article
published in the London Evening
News, answering a report by a British .labor delegation which visited
Russia and a letter dedicated to thc
Briiish people by Lenine.
Should thc Soviet system bc established in England, the wax minister
believes that not only would freedom
of the press and freedom of thought
bc swept away, but the English labor leaders themselves would "share
the fate of Kerensky, thc menshevik
ancl social revolutionaries in Russia."
Thc war minister charged Lenine
with having ruined his own country
and said it was natural hc should
wish "to havc all other nations reduced to the samc level of misery, in
order that his own carnage, may be
covered in the genera! chaos," wrote
"Lenine destroyed the Russian republic. Hc dissolved thc Russian
parliament. He had the bulk of its
members hunted down and killed.
He has robbed his country of victory

Providence Mine
P. B. Freeland, the resident
mining engineer haB the following
to say about the Providence mine
in the 1919 Report of the Minister
of Mines: "This mine, situated
one mile north of the town of
Greenwood, hag been operated
under lease by Al. Morrison and
D. McGillis, of Greenwood. The
rock surrounding the mine is of
green tuff near a contact with
granodiorite. The vein which is
chiefly quartz, with small particles
of calcite, averages about one foot
in width and occurs in the tuff.
An alkali-porphyry dyke cuts the
formation in an easterly and west-
0 erly direction and has evidently
disturbed the vein to a very considerable extent, causing a divergence of the strike of the vein of
about 20. degres. The strike iB
approximately north aud south;
dipping 60 degrees to the east.
There appears to be some displacement in the green, tuff, occurring in silicifi.ed.and pyritized vein-'
lets. The ore is galena, zinc py-
rite, . chalcopyrite, tetrahedrite,
.argentine, pyrargyrite; and native
silver and gold. There has' evi-
. dently been some aecondry enrichment, caused by surface waters.
On the 400:foot level there is still
a considerable, amount of ruby
silver, in the lead.
The present owners have installed an electrie compressor with a
. capacity, of 600 cubic' feet.of air,
and also pumps, with which they
have unwatered the.old shaft down
to the ^500-foot level. " Development consists of 260 feet of drifting in a southerly direction on l- the
.  300- foot level and 216. feet in the
. 400-foot leypl,; with 80 feet of raising between the 300. and 400-foot
levels, : Shipments : were made;, to
