To Build Line to Susie Mine
The old Sneie mine, located
about a mile north of " the Stem-
winder, in the Fairview mineral
belt, is again being operated, says
the Penticton Herald. The results
of the work which has been done
by the aid' of" steam "power have
been so satisfactory that arrangements have been en.eredjjinto by
the management with the West
Kootenay Power and Light Co. to^
construct, a line from the-Oliver
sub-station to .supply the mine
with electrical energy. This will
be used to operate the compressor,
the hoist   being  operated by air.

Mystery Of
The North
Indians   Refuse   to   Tell    Location   of
Silver   Lode   in   Barren   Lands
Somewhere in lhe Ban-en Lands oi'
ihe north, between Lakes Athabasca
and Croat Skive, exists ;i lode of silver beside which lhc mines of Cobalt
are pale in comparison. The silver
has been found, seen by many residents of the north, assayed roughly
and valued but except to a favored
few Its location is'Will the baflling
mystery thai it was.
In the summer of 11)21, Indians of
the Caribou Kaier tribe returning
from bunting in the Barren Lands
reached the post of Fitzgerald bringing word of a find of "shininj. rocks"
away east of the settlement in the unknown country travelled only by the
aboriglrtees when on tlie trail of the
caribou. A. small fragment brought
In by the natives revealed the fact
tliat it was almost pure silver, while
the Indians' information that there
was "plenty more" caused more than
a (hitter in the northern settlement..
Once appraised of thc "shining
rocks" value the Indians paddled their
canoes back and returned witli .still
more samples of the silver which are
still in the possession of Ben ller-
sehell of Fitzgerald. These, samples,
wliich weighed several pounds, were
roughly assayed by geologists and
Government engineers en route to the
Mackenzie. One scientist estimated
(hat the ore would run ?S.OO per ion
while another set it tit a (ayr dollars
lower than this figure. The assays
were made at widely different period:;
and neither of the, engineers were
aware of what, the other had estimated as the worth of the ore.
Naturally the native sons were popular in Fitzgerald, but every effort to
induce   them   to   reveal the ore body
proved fruitless; they would hot trust
the secret  to anyone but Philip Mer-
creui,  1'ur trader of Fort Chipewyan.
and this man could not leave his post.
to investigate.     The Indian who originally made ihe,discovery is still silent;", his  friend, -Philip Mereredi,- had

Exhibit of Western Honey
Saskatchewan Honey to be Shown at

Wyoming
3Ioney hi the comb ami  a  number
of kinds of extracted honey produced
in Saskatchewan have becn collected
by    the    Provincial    Department    of
Agriculture and sent forward   to   the

Thermopolis, "Wyoming.
A splendid case of 12 combs was
obtained from T. It. Mack, of Lums-
den, who has kept .15 or 20 colonies
for a number of years, producing
comb honey only. These combs
weigh 14 to 17 ounces each, and
with his bees of an Italian-German
cross he has been successful in getting about 100 combs of exceptionally
fine duality from each hive in a season. Mr. Mack states that this cross
is rather ti wicked bee, but Is superior
to some other strains for the making
of bright, combs. Me has had no
trouble in finding a good market in Regina and Lumsden, and obtains an
average of some $10 gross returns
from a single colony each year.
.lno. Hubbard, an old-timer of Gren-
foll, has put up lhe extracted honey
section/of the exhibit and shows very
interest ing samples of nectar gathered by the busy bee from Ihe ordinary
wild /lowers of the prairie. Variations are shown of gatherings af different times of the year. Many farmers who visited Kegina Agricultural
Kxhibii last duly will remember Mr.
Hubbard and his fine exhibit of bees,
wild flowers and honey in the Saskatchewan Government Fxhibit Building. At Iiis apiary will be found only
tho pure strains of Italian bees.
Who Owns the Air?
Strained Muscles. Sprains.
Can Be Treated Quickly
In minor sprains, the muscle is
strained a little, and all that is needed is a vigorous rubbing with Nerviline. This draws the extra blood
away, and permits the muscle to return to its normal condition. The
supremacy Nerviline enjoys is owing
to Its penetrating power, it strikes
deeply, that is why it removes deep-
seated pains, and fixes up folks that
have Rheumatism, Lumbago, Neuralgia and Sciatica. There ls about five
times the pain destroying power in
Nerviline than you find in the average liniment. Sold everywhere, 115c
per bottle.

The suit of the Omaha young man

tlie air and confining the smaller people to a very limited range of wave
lengths around 3li0 metres, although
there are 23,000 wave lengths that

Machine for Destroying Goods Important Part of Equipment
A machine for destroying goods to
test thcir worth is one of the most important pieces of apparatus in many
factories.
Vou cannot tell what any article
will stand unless you subject it. to actual wear. These, destroying machines are designed to reproduce in a
very short time fhe wear of months or
even years.
Cycle and motor tires arc run to
death on the wheels of a trolley which
circles round a small track. An instrument like a cyclo-me,ter keeps a
record of the mileage. In this way a
tire that is being tested can be made,
to cover 10,000 miles in little more
than a week.
Boots are sometimes tried ou a Kind
of walking machine, which can produce in a few hours ihe amount of
wear that would actually take place
in six months of ordinary use.
Glasses go through a process of destruction by being, filled alternately
with boiling and icy cold water. If
any of the samples crack easily when
under test the whole batch is rejected.
The boxes used for packing fragile
goods are tested in an automatic shaker, which gives them all the jolts and
bangs that might happen on a long-
voyage.
Chains and cables are placed on a
machine which stretches them until
they break, the strain borne being
being registered.

Operating Under Glass Case
French Surgeon's Plan Will Protect
Patient From Infection
By a new .idea in operating rooms
just perfected by Dr. Victor Pauchet,
uo longer will operations be conducted in a stifling atmosphere while a
score of clinical students crowd
around the table listening to the explanation of the head surgeons.
Dr. Pauchet has decided henceforth
to seperate himself from all students
by a glass partition covering the entire operating space. The observers
will be permitted merely to look down
through the glass from elevated rows
of benches. Opera glasses will be
placed at their disposal for following
delicate incisions while a small wireless telephone connected' with an amplifier behind the observers will be
used in describing the various stages
of the operation.
By the use of a constant antiseptic
spray before and during the operation.
Dr. Pauchet believes a greater degree
of surgical success will be possible,
as it is quite conceivable that under
the old system dangerous bacteria frequently were exhaled Into wounds by
the. unintentionally careless watchers.
The Oldest Horse
Animal Reputed to be Fifty-One Years
Of      Age      Owned      By      U.S.
Clergyman
A horse owned by a JJnited Stales
clergyman named Meyers, is probably
the oldest of its kind, having reached
ihe astonishing age of fifty-one years.
Clover, as this remarkable beast is
called, has astonished the experts by
his "feat in living for more than half a
century. It is undoubtedly a world's
record. The house surgeon at the
Royal Veterinary College in London
admitted that he had never heard of a
case to equal it. "The oldest horse 1
ever knew," he said, "was a pony in
the Midlands which lived to be thirty-
nine, and which was at work until
twelve months before its death. Racehorses are usually past their prime after six years, and hunters nnd working
horses have twelve years of useful
life." A surprising sight was a black
western pony, over thirty years of age,
which though still hale and hearty,
had begun to turn grey, and presented
the appearance of having passed
through a snow storm. Another expert said that hc believed if was quite
possible for horses to live for half a
comury or more, but added that in his
experience the oldest creature was
thirty-eight years of age. Mow long
it lived after that he was unable to
say.

ect Developments
-Over Flight Of Sultan
On British Warship
BRITISH VIEWPOINT
ACCEPTED BY FRENCH
Constantinople. ��� Mohammed VI.,
���the Turkish Sultan, has (led from Constantinople on a British warship bound
for Malta!
Upon embarking, the Sultan emphasized that he was not abdicating
but .merely- removing himself from
immediate danger.
London.���News of the departure of
"the Sultan, under British protection,
for Malta, created the most, intense interest in oflicial circles, which anxiously awaited the effect it might
have on the Moslem populations in India and other British domains.
Official London, it is learned author-
ilatively, is none too sure that the
Sultan's action will be approved by
the Moslems generally. Moreover,
it was believed that Nationalists, who
might possibly be angered, may offer
stiffer resistance to  the British pro
gramme at Lausanne than had been!
anticipated.
Great Britain's reason for giving
refuge to the Sultan, it" is explained,
is that since he formally asked, as
caliph of the Miisselmans, for protection from what he considered a
personal "danger, Great Britain could
do nothing else than comply. "If a
person in imminent danger of violence throws himself into your arms
and asks for protection, what can you
do but shield him?" was the way one
authority stated the British position.
"Great Britain," he added,- "had
traditionally been the refuge of deposed sovereigns. Even Napoleon
was removed to safety on a British
ship, and the only reason the Kaiser
did not offer himself up to General
I-laig was because he feared the danger of passing the firing lines on the
western front."
CONGESTION OF GRAIN AT LAKEHEAD
IS GIVING CAUSE FOR UNEASINESS
NO   DANGER   OF  SPLIT   IN   TURKISH PEACE NEGOTIATIONS
Paris.���fhe British have some 2S,-
000 men around the Straits of the
Dardanelles, Major de Civrieux, military critic of the Matin estimates. To
these, he says, must be added between
6,000 and 7,000 French and Italians.
There are about ,12,000 British soldiers
in Constantinople, the same number
in Chanak and the-remainder are on
the Gallipoli and Ismid Peninsulas.    .
Great Britain and France are now
in complete agreement on the fundamental conditions of Turkish peace
it was definitely stated in authoritative quarters. Premier Poincare in
a conversation with Baron Hardinge,
British Ambassador to France, and
through the medium of the French
Embassy in London, lias replied to the
British memorandum which^outlines
what Viscount Curzon regards the
vital elements to a satisfactory peace,
treaty with the Turks.
The French Premier has accepted
the British point of view it was asserted in official circles. This action'removes all danger of a Franco-
British split in the Near East negotiations.
WESTERN - EDITORS
."Fort William, Ont.���It is expected
that the next official figures on grain
in storage in lake head elevators will
show a considerable increase over previous figures for the present season.
Gradually the congestion on seaboard
routes is-making its effect felt here.
��� Export demand is still good, but export demand does not affect conditions here, with intervening ports" and
routes choked with the.flow of grain.
Indications are that forced deliveries
under contract are not the style just
now. These forced deliveries were
the justification for some fancy,prices
for cargo space earlier in the season,
but right how carriers are bidding for
cargoes    rather    than    shippers. for
���'space.''-.��� The shippers could use tiie
space, and they will have to ship
sometime, but indications -are that
they are delaying in the hope that the
-congestion:in eastern ports will-be relieved .and that they will not be forced
l.o ..face demurrage  claims,  which in
several instances have changed expected profits into considerable losses.-
Recent marine reports have revealed
several boats "waiting orders" here.
They are waiting to see whether the
carrier "or shipper is to pay for the
time lost-in eastern ports. The cost
is in a measure reflected in the cheaper rates, which have ruled higher this
year than has been pleasing to shippers.
Just now no immediate congestion
is feared here, but the trend is certainly toward that development. (There
is still space for millions of bushels in
elevators liere, but the incoming
stream is constant, while the outgo is
intermittent. Lately the gain of the
incoming' stream has increased its
lead over outgoing shipments. Whether any change is to be anticipated before the end of navigation is largely
a matter of opinion. Generally, the
opinion'is that the eastern ports are
doing as much as they are capable ,of
doing. V . \

Political Downfall
Of Lloyd George
Admirers   Regret   That   He   Did   Not
Retire Before Elections Were  /
' 'Held
London.���The long-drawn out fight
between former Premier Lloyd George
and Sir George Younger has, for the
time, ended with victory for the chairman of the Unionist party. Younger
and his adherents staked their political fortunes at the famous' Carlton
Club meeting, when they smashed the.
Coalition and sent Lloyd George into
the wilderness, on the contention
that the country was ripe for straight
party politics, and in the firm belief
that the nation would support their
conviction by sending __tbe Conservatives to the.'House o'f Commons with
a good working majority. In the new
'Parliament, Premier. Bonar Law will
command a majority over all parties
combined of approximately SO.     ���/--���
���While this cannot properly be described as a landslide, as the Conservatives, at the time of dissolution,
numbeived about 380, it amounts considering the peculiar circumstances of
the time, and the high hopes held by
the Labor and Liberal, parties of the
return of the country to progressive
views", almost to the same thing, and
it may-be supposed that the Conservatives themselves hardly expected such
favorable results.- .. V    '-

CANADA'S    INDUSTRIAL    IMPORTANCE   REALIZED   BY  COUNCIL
OF LEAGUE
Ottawa.���-Striking recognition of the
industrial importance of Canada is
contained'in a recent decision of the
court of the League of Nations, according to information reaching the
Government here.
This decision was rendered under
the authority of Article 393 of the
Treaty of Peace, which declared that
eight of the 12 Government seats on
the governing bedy of the International Labor Office should be held by
the countries of "the chief industrial
importance," and that tiny question
arising as to which were the countries of chief industrial importance
should be decided by the League of
Nations Council/ Canada was ranked as one of the eight countries of
chief industrial countries, with Germany, Belgium, France, Great Britain,
India, Italy and Japan.

Ottawa.���That the St. Lawrence
River may again, after 75 years, become,a salmon breeding river is the
opinion of Alex. Johnston, Deputy
Minister of Marine and Fisheries. Today in the department is a fine 4-year-
old male 16 pound salmon caught near
the mouth of Lake Ontario.
Two or three, generations ago the
St. Lawrence was a fine salmon river
but became fished out. Four years
ago as an experiment, the department
placed -salmon eggs obtained from
Harrison's Rapids on the Fraser River in British Columbia.

Winnipeg.���Commenting on the
statement of Rev. Dr. C. W. Gordon
.before the Presbyterian Synod recently that. Hon. R. W. Craig, Attorney-
General of Manitoba, had been offered a bribe of ?50,000, Major F. G. Tay-.
lor, leader of the Conservative party
in the Provincial Legislature, declared the Attorney-General should reveal
the name of the man who attempted
the bribery. .\
Major Taylor said: ."It is a serious thing to admit that the chief
law officer of the Crown in this province has been approached with a
bribe, and the facts should be fully
disclosed."
John T. Haig, leader in the last
House, endorsed Major Taylor's
stand. "Dr. Gordon's revelation
makes it a grave public issue," he
said, "and the Attorney-General
-should reveal the name of tlie man
who tried to bribe him, or should be
compelled by the Legislature to do
so."

Loss Due to Strikes
Ottawa.���An estimated loss or 54,-
502 working days due to strikes during
October, 3922, according to figures issued by the Department of Labor.
During the month there were 17
strikes, involving 3,229 working people, as compared with 18 strikes, 15,-
275 work people and 91,900 days' loss
in September, and .1.7 strikes, 1.S97
work" people, and 46,036 days lost in
October, 1921.
London.���The Bonar Law Government is likely to go on with a policy,
so close J;'o that of tbe Coalition Gov-
ernmenf/hiat little chance will be given Lloyd George to 'make attacks.
Labor's gains constitute a new menace, and unless both Lloyd George and
Asquith ultimately decide to join
forces with the Conservatives against
Labor, it seems that there is nothing
left for either but the role of a sort ot
futile critic, with both sides unable to
influence the decision of either.
With 607 out of 615 returns in, the
parties stand: Conservatives, 345;
Labor, 1-11; Liberals, 62; Georgians,
44; others, 15.
A careful analysis of the results
seems to indicate that it was material
considerations that influenced the
voters. The Midlands and Lanca-.
shire, where Lloyd George had counted on considerable support, turned
Conservative on Bonar Law's and
Lord Derby's assurance that ihey
would not, for the present, alter the
free trade policy of fhe country.-
In Wales and Scotland, Labor gained through the general dissatisfaction,
unemployment and depression in the
large mining and industrial districts.
One of the most important factors
in the J^abor gain, however, was the
apathy of the voters. Out of 21,000,-
000 voters only 14,000,000 went to the
polls, of which the Conservatives
drew 5,340,000; Labor, 4,250,000;
Liberals, 2,750,000; Georgians, 1.3S0,-
000 approximately.

was a reduction of 81,102,757 from

"The credit of the province is
better than at any tima since Confederation," said Hon. Mr. Hart,
"and this is demonstrated by the j
ready sale of our bonds, the prices
we have received, aud the number
of financial houses bidding for the
issues. The province in fortunate
in owning great natural resources
within its bounds, timber, mines,
agricultural lands aud lishcrks.
The return of normal conditions
and the influx of people wo may

Bow Island.���The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has a gang
of men at work here on the improvements to their pumping plant and
when completed there will be quite
an improvement to the volume of
water that can be pumped from the
river. The work includes the putting in of a new boiler and pump at
the river, so that they can use natural gas as well as gasoline, and
thus be sure of fuel at all times for
pumping, and does away with water
trouble and having engines run for
water. It also increases the service
here and practically does away with
supply at other points.
'II. II. Miles, division engineer, has
charge of the work and has a crew
of eighteen men working with him
under Foreman W. J. Oliver. It will
take at least three, weeks for the
work to be completed. When finished they will be able to fill the
present water tank, which holds
16,000 barrels, in three hours. When
it is considered that there will be at

must be a supply of it on hand at

I-1E British people arc
loving folk, and have
credit traditions of the
that are greater, and of more worldwide, importance than any other
country. Therein, no doubt, lies the
reason why Canadians today take so
much ink-rest in theatricals, and particularly those of thc amateur variety,
n-cing a small population lying alongside a great one, it is but natural
that Canada's professional stage
should be entirely dominated by that
of thc United States.'but it is greatly
to Canada's credit that there has
conic into being an important theatrical movement in this country which
is distinct from that of the regular
professional stage. Under existing
conditions it is only thus that there
can be developed a Canadian stage
with a literature of its own. Montreal has its group of Community
Players, Toronto has its Hart House
Theatre, and Winnipeg, Vancouver
and Victoria, as well as many other
Canadian cities, have thcir theatrical organizations, all of which arc
doing an excellent work, but none of
them arc more worthy of note than
the. little theatre which has been established in the fruit-growing village
of Naramata in the Okanagan Valley,

It was-built by Carroll Aikins on
his small fruit ranch. For years he
and Mrs. Aikins had been interested
in thc theatre. One of his own plays
was produced three years ago in Birmingham, and it was because there
was.-no native theatre where Canadian plays could be tried out that thc
little theatre of Naramata -came to be
built.
The neighbourhood of Naramata
had actors enough. Mr. and 'Mrs.
Carroll Aikins wcrc of the sort that
could make actors out of anybody
who had a lovc for that sort of thing
���but the theatre was another matter. It liad to be built, but before
that it had to be designed and, not
knowing so much about what regular theatres had in them, as about,
what he thought thcy should have,
Mr. 'Aikins 'was able to" evolve a
community theatre that in completeness of equipment and simplicity of
arrangement does not suffer in comparison wilh-any theatre of the kind
on the continent, but which presents
many novel and interesting features.
<JJ The theatre is built in the spacious
upstairs  of  thc  fruit  ranch   packing
house. The stage is on the floor
level, and the benches rise gradually on shallow steps, but it is in its
stage that the theatre is most remarkable. The back wall is a huge
plastered dome with a specially prepared surface on which' a splendid
array of variously colored lights can
create any effect desired. There is
no space to describe "the scenic effects, all of which were designed and
built by Mr. Aikins and his assistants. It is enough to say they were
simplicity itself and amazingly successful.''
The actors are the fruit pickers of
the  neighbourhood,  reinforced by  a
number of enthusiasts from various
parts of Canada who have gone   to " ���
Namarata to study stage-craft.     .It
is Mr. Aikins' hope that this number
will grow, and that his splendid little theatre will  have an opportunity
of giving a first production  to new -'
Canadian plays by Canadian authors.
Thc theatre has already become-the
most important place in the country
side, and will continue to make life
more worth the living in  beautiful^
