Yukon Silver
Lying northerly from Dawson is
the Ogilvie range or spar of the
Rocky mountains. The height of
land on this range" extends from
th(* Mackenzie watershed to Mount
Klotz, which is at the source of
the southerly branch of the Porcupine river. Lying along the
northerly slope of this Ogilvie
range are mauy streams draining
into the Stewart river, the Klondike and the Chandindu or Twelve
mile. It is on this slope that the
new silver finds have been made in
the Mayo district. Lying along
the same slope are the Twelvemile
silver properties.
Ib is surprising how little the
bare ridges of that long range and
the slopes have been prospected.
In all the twenty years one small
spur lying just above Lightning
creek was untouched. Now it is
attracting more attention than
anything in the Klondike. Within five miles of the very ridge on
which the new claims have been
staked placer miners worked a
Bcore of years ago, and held-the
hills above them in contempt.
Even silver float ore was scorned
Silver was little value in those
days,.and found few devotees. All
wanted the gold. Now that silver
commands three' times the old
price, there is great stimulus in
production of silver. ' Dawson
seems to have at its very door
wonderful possibilities in silver in
the Ogilvie range.
The ridge of the range deserves
first-consideratiou^rforr the-reaeon
nature has done the prospecting.
The high, bald, rugged peaks are
denuded entirely of growth. The
peeks stand out in ragged muteness, inviting any who will come.
But ib is safe to say that less than
one half of one per cent, of the
long ridge even has been pressed
by human foot. Yes, miles after
miles of the summits, their ridges
and saddle-backs are unknown to
the prospector.
It Isn't Your Town; It's You
If you want to live in the kind of a town
Like the kiud of a town you like.
Vou needn't slip your clothes in a grip
And start on a long, long hike,
You'll only find what you left behind,
For there's nothing that's realiy new;
It's a knock at yourself when you leave
your town���
It isn't your town���it's you.
Real towns are not made by men afraid
Lest someone get ahead;
When every one works and nobody shirks
Yon can raise a town from the dead.
And if when you make your personal
Your neighbor can make one, too,
Your town will be what you want to see-
It isa't your town���it's you.

lhe 1919 Victory Loan
The people of Canada arc oucc
again asked to demonstrate their
thorough-going Canadianism by subscribing to the limit of tlicir financial
ability  to   thc  Victory  Loan,   1919.
Throughout ihc wav thc people of
Canada never oucc failed to meet all
demands made upon thcm by their
country, and Western Canada in
particular established a record for
self-sacrificing patriotic effort unsurpassed in any province or country. Looking back over thc history
of the past five eventful years, the
people of the West have nothing
with which to reproach themselves;
on the contrary, thcy have evcry reason for justifiable pride in thcir
efforts  and achievements.
The Great War is over so far as
the fighting is concerned. It has
ended in a triumphant victory for our
cause, a victory made possible by the
efforts of thc five years now happily
gone. But while thc fighting is ended, victory achieved, and our soldiers
home again, one very important part
of Canada's war effort is yct-uncom-
plcted. Thc Victory Loan, 1919, is
necessary  to finish  the  work.
War is a tremendously expensive
business, and modern warfare calls
for an expenditure of money undreamed of in the centuries of the
past. Canada pledged its honor to
contribute all its powers, resources
and wealth lo thc winning of the war.
We said we would go to the limit
of our last man and our last dollar
in such "a just and'-noblc cause. Our
men went, thousands gave their1 lives,
other thousands1 are-maimed and sut-
fcring from..-'wounds, all require lo bc
again established,in civilian life. Thc
soldiers have done their part. Thcy
havc brought, imperishable honor and
glory to Canada. As soldiers their
work is ended. " '
But   Canadians   who  remained   "at
home, and-' who,  therefore, had  ' the
easier part," havcTstill to finish,   their
. part of-thc work.   The bills contracted lo win 'the war raust.be paid. 1'iir-
thcrmorc, the expense'of war did not
end with.lhe actual fighting-.   . It cost
millions .to bring our soldiers' home-,
and many-more millions ior pensions.

it would bc nothing short of a na-!
tional calamity if business became;
stagnant in Canada and unemploy-11
mcnt widespread. Thc result would 11
be disastrous, and no man can fore- ���
tell what the end might be. A la-gcj
ovcr-subscriptio.i to the 1919 Victory j
Loan will avert such a disaster. i
This is not a ioan to thc Minister,
of  Finance.       It  is  not     a  loan   to'
Union Government.    It is a loan by'
the people of Canada to Canada itself.    In Qthcr words, it is a loan by
individual Canadians to themselves in 1
a collective capacity.   It is a loan for!
national purposes, aud every cent of
the loan will be spent in Canada and
thus redistributed again to the people
of Canada.      Canadians  will receive
the interest paid on thc loan, and will
ultimately receive back the whole of
the principal sum.
If Canadians fail to subscribe the
amount required, Canada must borrow it elsewhere, and if Canadians
refuse to lend their own country the
money it needs, it stands to reason
that other people will only loan to
it at absolutely ruinous rates of interest. ' Furthermore, the payment of
that interest abroad will constitute
an annual drain upon Canada, impoverishing it, but adding to thc wealth
of  other   countries.
Canada must pay its war bills and
finance its own reconstruction policies. It is far better both for,thc individual taxpayer and thc nation that
Canadians themselves should provide
thc principal sum to cover such expenditures, and to pay to themselves
thc interest charges on that national,
Every Canadian should, therefore,
strain his or her resources to purchase the largest possible amount of
Victory Bonds. Quite apart from
helping Canada, and maintaining our
national honor and credit before thc
world/it will prove a first-class investment.' The security is unquestioned, namely, the entire resources
of the Dominion. Thc interest rate
is good���far betier lhan that paid by
any financial institution on savings

How We Can Prevent Fires
Guard Against Fire Loss By Using
Every Precaution
Such simple precautions as the following will prevent many fires:   o
(a) Remote accumulations of rubbish from basements, outhouses and
(b) Never permit children to play
with matches. Safety matches that
'strike only on thc box should bc used
in cvery home.
(c) Do not permit stoves and furnaces lo become overheated and
never leave fires unguarded.
(d) Never throw cigar and cigarette ends and pipe ashes carelessly
away. Smoking should not be permit-
led around garages, barns, stables,
granaries and stocks. Children should
never smoke.
(c) Oily rags and waste ignite
spontaneously. - Burn' thcm -' immediately after .using.
. (f) Gasoline should not be kept in
the -house. Store it .at- least'"25 feet
from any-building. .,     -   " ',
,: (g) Oil stoves and "lamps -should be
filled only iii daylight and never-".near
an open light or fire. Keep-oil stoves
clean "and watch for leaks;. '���''""". ���
(h) Never.attempt to kindle".a fire,
-by using coal oil or gasoline.'.

has just revisited that area on behalf
of Boston interests. .
The result of his visit has been the
acquisition of 40,000 acres of land
which are estimated to contain 30,000
tons of oil per acre. Of this land, 60
miles nortlT of McMurray, Mr. Law
produced some interesting photographs, showing banks of-tar sand,
which, he stated, were 160 feet thick
and which would burn just like a
torch. These tar sands just above
the water level, wcrc shown by analysis to contain 23 per cent, of oil and
beneath thc water level 33 pcr cent.
Mr. Law said the oil was exactly
like thc Russian oil of the famous
Baku wells, having an asphalt base,
but it was believed that when drilling
operations wcrc undertaken back of
the river, where there was more cover, the oil would be very much lighter and would contain more gasoline.
Already there was quite a settlement
at McMurray���the terminal of thc
Alberta Great Waterways Railway.
Americans were taking up land by
the thousands of acres, and every
train and steamboat was crowded
with newcomers. "Thc area of land
in that one district that has already
been proved as oil bearing is 90 miles
long, while the total area in thc district is estimated at 1U,UU0 square
miles," said Mr. Law.
A Nervous Wreck"
How many business
men feel fagged out, nervous, with a "soggy brain"
���-worn out compretely
before the day and its
tremendous'.-tasks are half
over? Try the right'way!
Clean the body first. That
will help your nerves,
your head and your circulation. Your doctor will
tell you that anything
from a headache or a
common cold to grippe or a serious illness may result from
allowing food to ferment m the intestines. Don't give the
body a chance to absorb the poisons.- Remove the toxins
from the system and give the tissues of the body aid to
resist disease by taking an occasional laxative such as
castor oil, or a tiny pill made up of May-apple, aloin, jalap,
and sold by most druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
The kidneys and bladder suffer from the wear and tear,
and we get chronic inflammations sometimes indicated by
backache, painful voiding of water���rdull, heavy feelings.
Perhaps the uric acid is stored up in the system in excessive
amount, and consequently when the urate salts are depos*
ited in muscles and joints one suffers from lumbago (pain
in back), rheumatic pains, gout, etc.
Nothing will act so nicely as "Anuric" (anti-uric-acid),
a recent discovery of Dr. Pierce's which can be had at all
drug stores. "Anuric" washes away the poisons, cleanses
the bladder and kidneys���rendering them antiseptic;���
consequently one is soon cured of lumbago, rheumatism,
gout, and the body is put into a-clean, healthy state.

Of particular interest to thc north*
ern development of the province' ol

located there, was the visit to th��
coast recently of Lady Rhondda (wife
of the late great Welsh coal magnate,
D. A. Thomas) and a party of shareholders in the Peace River Development company. Settlers in the north
have been somewhat uneasy since the
death of Lord Rhondda as to what
action the executors would take with
regard to future development along
the Peace River, but all fears arc now
allayed following the annual meetings
of both companies which were Ijeld
in Vancouver with Lady Rhondda,
thc president, in the chair.
In company with her entire party
shc had visited thc company's interests along the Peace River and at the
meeting expressed herself greatly
pleased with thc norlh and the possibilities for extensions of the various
interests there. Thc Development
company operates two boats, thc D.
A. Thomas and Lady Mackworth, and
. so heavy has grown thc trade that it
J was practically decided to build a ncw
steamer and improve thc service. The

Filling His
Own Shoes
��� BY��� ""
Copyrighted. Printed by special
arrangement with Thos. Allen,
"He's  certainly  a  fine old gentleman," Ruggles answered.
"Well,"1 said Pembroke, "comc out
hrthc garden as soon as you're ready.
I'll go order our chow."
Hc went out, and Rugglcs stood
for a moment staring into thc glass.
."Lord Pembroke��� Lord Pembroke!" hc repeated to himself^ "And
I was beginning to think he might
be some sort of a con man! Golly!"
It swept over Rugglcs that he was
still very callow and inexperienced in
regard lo this world and the people
in it. Also, he began to wonder if
all men were as free and equal as his
American principles had led him to
maintain. Up to this time hc had
never been able to understand why
he should not consider himself as
good as anybody else, and now for
the firs* time it occurred to him that
perhaps he had taken far too much
,  for granted.
Thc Downings were his superiors,
and so were Darthea and her aunt
and Mr. Falconer and Pembroke. Thc
rectors of thc American and English
churches were also of this higher
order, to which it now seemed tb
Ruggles, in his reaction, that he
could never hope to attain.
"I  guess  I'm just    a cheap littic
skate and never found it out," thought
he bitterly.    "Where  did  I   get  my
license to trot around with Darthca
and   Miss  Challand,  and  to  cal!   on
- Ruth- Downirtg-anu-boihcr"her~with
my hurt feelings, and now to be eating here at the Madrid with    Lord
Pembroke?    They're   all  swells���thc
rcal thing ��� and I'm nothing but a
cheap littic  squirt  of  a shoe  clerk.
Well, I've got my goods.    None of
'cm will ever be bothered by Dicky
Rugglcs again.    I'll  go back to the
Statcs    and hunt    me up    a job as
chauffeur or bicycle    cop or something that's more in my line.   Whatever it is, it won't bc selling shoes."
It was in this chastened mood that
hc rejoined his host, who was seated
at a  table iu   thc garden  cheerfully
engaged    in  ordering     thcir repast.
Ruggles declined thc offer of a cocktail, but when the hors d'ocuvrcs were
served  he   quickly  discovered     how
badly lie was in need of food.   A fillet
of  sole,  followed  by a juicy  steak,
went far toward restoring him to his
tiormal self.    Pembroke was hungry,
too, and neither had much to say until the coffee was served.   Then Pembroke lighted a cigar, leaned back in
his  chair,  and,  looking at   Ruggles,
whose execution of the delicious luncheon he had been observing    with
kindly approval,"asked with a smile:���
"Feeling better, "old chap?"
"I sure am," Rugglcs answered. "I
guess I was hungrier than I thought.
You  see,  I've  had  a  lot  of  things
bothering mc for thc last couple of
._da5~s  and  I haven't  thought     much
about eating."
"So I imagined," Pembroke answered. "You looked pretty well
gone. Do you think they'll try to
make it nasty for you down there?"
Ruggles shook his head. "I don't
believe so," hc answered. "Lorenz
might, but he's got to go to Vienna
today.    Durand,  the     manager,   wii!
probably try to hush the thing up,
if only for his own sake..' I'm sorry
it happened, but when that skunk
Lorenz grabbed me by the arm I
saw red. Then Durand had to butt
in, and Wagneiv the cashier, so I. just
sailed in to clean out the'whole darn
Pembroke chuckled. "I must say
you made a ripping thorough job of
it," ^aid he. "Since it had to be I
wouldn't have missed it for anything.
That right hook you put on the jaw
of the German gentleman was a proper knock-out if hc hadn't been such
a bony brute. And you stopped-hjm
beautifully .when he came back. Oh,
it was a lovely scrap." He leaned
back and laughed, then looked at
Ruggles, who was sipping his coffee
and taking no apparent pleasure in
this sort of praise. "What arc you
going to do now?"
"I don't know," Ruggles ansvvered
slowly. "I've got a littic money saved up and I thought I might go back
to N'York, and hunt up some sort of
a job. I've got enough "of this town.
You sec, it's not only losing my job,"
hc went on, with a rather heightened
color, "but only the day before, I
got turned down by a girl I thought
a whole lot about."
"No, really? I say, that is tough!
What was the trouble, if you don't
mind my asking?"
"I'd sure like to tell you about it,"
said Ruggles^ "You've been so,
mighty kind t6 me, and I hate to
havc you think that I'm just a common rough-houser. But it's a long
story, and as you're leaving tonight,
you must have a lot of things you
want to do and see."
Pembroke glanced (.at his watch.
"I've got an hour yet," said lie. "Tell
me all about it. I might be able to
help you.; Wc medicos are often
able to give advice that isn't purely
Rugglcs looked gratefully at the
kindly, interested face of his host. It
struck him that Pembroke was a considerably older man than he had at
first.thought. The fresh but rugged
skin had certain lines of experience,
and the crisp chestnut 'hair which
curled above thc small, closely set|
ears was flecked with gray. Ruggles
decided that his host must be nearer
forty than thirty. A sudden curiosity
j possessed him to-know more of this
I strong, kindly man.
"What is it?" asked Pembroke, noting the look of inquiry.
Rugglcs colored. "I was just
thinking," said he, "lhat it seems sort
of funny that you should be a doctor when you're an English lord."
"That's easily explained. You see,
in Eugland thc oldest son inherits after thc death of thc father. When
my father died, my elder brother inherited the title and thc estates/ Rather than rot around at home, I went
out to Australia and scratched for
myself. I had a sheep ranch for a
while, then tried gold digging, and
finally went down to Melbourne and
studied medicjne. Surgery had always interested me, so 1 went in for
that, and I had quite a decent' littic
practice (hc did not sec fit'to mention that hc was" tlic leading surgeon
of the city) when my brother died.
Now I'm going out for the Red Cross
and unless I'm much mistaken, there
will be a lot of work to do, once
they get at it in real earnest. But
about this affair of yours���?"
Ruggles finished his coffee and set
down the cup.
"Well," said he, "it was like this,
Lord���" ,
"Call mc 'doctor,'" said Pembroke.
"I���like- it~bcttcrr -You""scer~anybody
might become a peer by virtue of
birth or circumstance or because of
���oh, a lot of things. But a man has
to  make himself a surgeon."
"Well, then," said Rugglcs, "it was
like this." And in his simple, frank,-
and often slangy manner of speaking,
hc proceeded to put Pembroke in possession of all thc facts connected with
his unfortunate affair. Pembroke
lighted a fresh cigar and leaned back
in his chair to listen. Hc was a man
who loved his fellow men, loved to
help and direct them, and his experience, of human nature in thc law as
well as in thc finished product was
considerable. Hc was the more eminently fitted to grasp the situation
because thc social conditions of life
in Australia so closely approach those
of the United Statcs in inanj- ways.
It did not take Ruggles long to tell
his story, scarcely a quarter of an
hour, in fact; thc more so as he had
so littic to say about himself. Pembroke observed this trait ��n him with
particular appreciation, realizing' its
rarit3*.    Rugglcs    finished his narra-

As there is moisture at the rale of

A Perfect Lover
In the back of each woman's
brain lies the picture of a perfect
lover. The picture will vary, of
course, according to the personality of the woman, but there are a
few qualities with which all women
paint their perfect lover, and which
he must have if he deserves the
name of lover at all.
First in these absolutely necessary attributes stands loyalty to
the woman he loves. Secondly,
lie must in his heart of hearts,
icuow that the biggest thing in his
life is his love for the "one
woman" and no matter what
material success he attains in tbe
world, love must be to him the
thing which makes all his achievements worth while. Thirdly, his
love must not depend upon possess-
siug the woman of his heart. He
must, if need be, wait through
eternity until lie can claim her.

till these three requirements would
indeed bo a MAN"���and perfect
lover-.���Elizibeth  Warfiehl.

national income for this year, aud
with a prospect of these charges
swallowing up at least 60 per cent
of the National income next year,
the danger point has already been
passed. Unless there is an immediate iight~ about face and a
policy of rigid economy substituted
for one of reckless spending, national bankruptcy is inevitable."

Creed forthe Discouraged
Canadians !
This is a call to Nation&l Service���
The Victory Loan 1919
which opens to-day.
A as
YOU are citizens of no mean country.
Canada is a fair, free land.
Canada is your country.
Canada-now-has need to borrow from you-Lend:
Lend without restraint of pontics or fine distinctions of creed or party.
The leaders of the political parties endorse the Loan.
It is CANADA that asks:
And why���
To clean up the last of the War's commitments and expenses;
To establish beyond all question tiie capacity and credit of your country;
To care for the wounded and maimed soldier;
To finance the bonus of the returned soldier already paid; v-,;
To enable the fruits of Victory to be garnered;
To ensure the prosperity of you, her citizens.
The guns of war are silent-but they are not yet cool.     '
The Victory Loan 1919-is a War Loan.
Canada's book of war is gloriously written-make this, the closing chapter, a
^%vorthy/;roe^ i.'yZi'X'     '
I believe that God created me to
be happy, to enjoy the blessings of
life, to be useful to -my fellow-beings, and an honor to my country.
I believe that the trials which
beset me today are but the fiery
tests by which my character is
strengthened, ennobled and made
worthy to enjoy the higher things
of life, which I believe are in store
fore me.
I believe that my soul is too
grand to be crushed by. defeat; I
will rise above it.
I believe that I am the architect
of my own fate; therefore,
I will be master of circumstances
and surroundings, not their slave. -
I will not yield to discouragements, I will trample them under
foot and make them serve as stepping stones to success. I will conquer my obstacles and turn them
into opportunities.
My failures of today will help
to guide me on tb victory bn the ���������
The morrow will bring new1
strength, new hopes, new opportunities and new beginnings. I
will cbe ready to meet it with a
brave heart, a calm mind and an
undaunted spirit.
In all things I will do my best,
and leave the rest to the Infinite,' ��;
I will not waste my mental
energies by useless worry. I will
learn to dominate my restless
thoughts and look on the bright
side of things. -
I will face the world bravely, I
will not be a coward. I will assert
iny God-given birthright and be a
man. For I am Immortal; and
nothing can overcome me.���Virginia Opal Myers.
