Bar silver was quoted at 81.36

fluctuations during the war, bufe
fell almost to SI after the U. S.
government entered into an agreement with Great Britain to ship
large quantities of the metal to
India. The recent advance is attributed to renewal of demand from
the orient, mainly China, and increased domestic use by silversmiths.

The timc is ct hand when thc people
of tlie Western Provinces of Canada
havc important obligations, imposed
upon them by their citizenship, to discharge. Primarily it is a duty they

to themselves.
The reference is lo thc selection of

women  to whom  is  to  bc  entrusted
It is to our own interests, as well
as a duty we owe to our country,
that this position should not only be
maintained, but that it should be improved. Such improvement is not to
bc brought about solely in Dominion
and Provincial politics, but thc principal field of endeavor is to bc found
in local affairs, namely, in thc municipality and local school district. It
is here that thc foundation of reform

careful and wise administration in

Entomological Circular No. 12, "Directions for Collecting and Preserving Insects" has been prepared by J.
H. McDunnough, M.A., Ph.D. This
circular may bc obtained free upon
application to thc Publications
Branch, Department of Agriculture,
Ottawa. It indicates concisely some
of the most essential features in connection with thc collection of insects,
and aims to arouse an interest for

municipal and school administration
in a territory many times thc size of
some outstanding European nations.
The matters which in the coming
year will engage the attention and call
for action on thc part of these local
representative bodies may not be very
spectacular or fill a largc place in the
public eye or in the columns of thc
newspapers, but to an even greater extent than many matters of national
ancl even international moment they
directly, affect the well-being of thc
people, and to thc extent that these
purely local affairs arc well managed,
the comfort, convenience and advancement of thc people of a community art served. Furthermore,
thcy havc a very direct bearing on
thc burden of local taxation to bc imposed.
Never, it is probably safe to say,
in thc history of this country was il
a matter of greater concern than it
is today that the keenest interest
should be taken by all citizens in the
choice of thc men and women selected by thcm to serve in a representative public capacity. Western Canada
is by no means immune from the unrest which prevails throughout thc
world, and which is turning some
countries and old established conditions topsy-turvy. Problems connected with labor, education, social and
moral questions, trade and commerce,
finance ancl taxation���all are in the
melting pot, and what will ultimately
evolve therefrom for the good or evil
" of mankind depends lo a very large
extent upon the interest displayed by
the average man and woman, iii-public
��� affairs, the amount of study and consideration they arc prepared lo give
to reaching a solution ,of these, problems, 'and she character of .the men
and women whom Miry- elect lo public
.office to deal with. them.
... It is of-"the utmost importance,
therefore, that the" people'of Western
Canada should give serious heed to
the selection of thcir municipal    and
- school, representatives this year... Jn
���making choice'of these"' representatives this is a time, above' all-others
when"- people - should' be  on   . their
"  guard against being swayed' by fccl-
-ings of personal friendship, on the one]
hand, or feelings of a personal dislike
on, the other hand, "in voting for candidates for public' office.   It is a time
.when  all old  partizanship should be
buried .and forgotten, wli'cn .consider-
\ aliens- of race, or'.creed, or personal
ambition should be ignored, "and when

will lead to -better Provincial government and more careful handling of

Work More and Talk Less
cd in, both collecting and packing for
shipment an otherwise valuable collection may bc rendered practically
worthless from both thc aesthetic
and  the  scientific  standpoint.
A. Tendency to Stand About Discussing Ways and Means
"No nation that puts a minimum of
its strength into labor can hope to
compete witli another that works at
full blast; to live, thc world must
produce more and talk less." Thus
succinctly, A. C. Bedford, head of the
Standard Oil Company, of New Jersey, put the situation to 2,500 delegates to the international trade conference in Atlantic City. The same
point was emphasized even more
strongly by Colonel House, when' hc
said: "Everything has been said that
can be said on every vital thing."
Reconstruction too long has been
the theme���it should now become thc
task. For months there has been a
tendency to stand about discussing
ways and means of going about the
job. Probably if cleaning up had
been begun at thc bottom of thc mess
without'waiting for a wonderful and
comprehensive scheme" for achieving
thc result overnight, the world might
now. have been in.a fair way toward
finishing the job..'-.It can hardly bc
said that a beginning has been made
yet.;    -".-/��� -."."   ��� -< --
The dictum that' thc -world must
work holds for capital and for the
public as well as for, labor. No individual, whether he belongs to ; the
ranks of, labor,, in the realm of capital, -.or thc less fortunate who is
neither, is doing liis duly unless

Evcry boy before becoming a
scout is required to make this promise: "On my honor, as a Scout, I
promise to do my best, to do my
duty to God and thc King, to help
others at all times, and lo obey the
Scout law." The sense of honor iu
thc young lad is appealed to first of
all. He is trusted and that in itself
is a great corrective for cvilvinclin-
ations. Thc Golden'Rule is the pivot
on which thc Scout movement revolves. Unselfish service is the aim
of thc Boy Scout, and to achieve il
he must obey thc  Scout Law,
Trustworthiness is a quality which
all decent men respect ancl aspire to.
It is one of thc lcquircnients of
Scout Law. Under this law thc
Scout is expected to do at least one
good turn for somebody every day.
How many men live up to this requirement? The scout is expected to
be loyal, cheerful and friendly. He
never shirks or grumbles al hardships. He is expected to bc courteous ancl must not take pay for being helpful or polite. He docs these
things because he is trained to understand thc true value of unselfish
service. He is kind because he believes in thc Golden Rule. He recognizes constituted authoiity because he understands the value .of
law and order in all things. He is
thrifty because he is taught thai
waste is inexcusable. He keeps clean
in body and thought. Hc stanch for
clean speech clean sport ancl clean
habits.    Hc is the ideal Canadian.
In these clays of unrest wc look
around for suitable solutions of thc
problems which confront us ou every sidc. We criticise thc condition
of affairs in general and wc seek lo
remedy them True men in thc ranks
of employers and employees seek for
common ground upon which to construct a permanent industrial _pcace.
The Seoul motto is "Be Prepared,"
and thc Scout pea6c cry is, "The wav
is over, but our work is not."' So to
those who seek for the things worth
while in lifc careful observance of
Scout Law is commended, for

Timber Business
Booming* in B.C.
Export Orders Cannot Be Filled Because of Shortage of
During the month of October lumber and logs to the extent of 30,000,-
000 feet were shipped from British
Columbia into the United Statcs, and
this was in " addition to 20,500,000
pounds of wood pulp and paper, 175,-
644,000 shingles and 51,705 poles. The
shortage of ships for lumber cargoes
is still serious for the B.C. mills. Discussing'this subject, C. E. Hubbard,
managing director of the Associated
Timber Exporters of -British Columbia, which organization represents thc
larger manufacturers, say3 - that inquiries arc coming in regularly from
Australia; the United. Kingdom,
Japan, China and South Africa, but
ships cannot be found to move the
shipments, in consequence of which
orders cannot bc taken. Up to thc
end of October the manufacturers had
been able to move but 33,000,000 feet
of thc 70,000,000 British order received several months ago. This month
it is expected that an additional 15,-
000,000 feet will bc scut to thc Old
Country. The lumber mills are nevertheless doing a big business, and
prices arc al record heights. This is
caused to a large extent by increases
in wages, shorter hours and thc abnormal demand.

Thc size of a muscle may be increased by exercise or even by temporary usc. The bony structure of

Big- Sodium Sulphate Mine
Product of Saskatchewan Mine Will

The White Shore Chemical Co. announces   thc  development   of  a   big
sodium sulphate_mine on thc-_shorcs
of White Shore Lake, situated northwest of Biggar, west of Oban    and
close to C.P.R. lines.   The deposit is
stated to bc 97 pcr cent, pure, that
its  usc  will absolutely  rcvolutioni?c
methods of pulp mills, which arc now
only getting twelve by-products from
thc wood by the ground wood process, whereas by thc usc of sodium
sulphate as a refining ingredient thcy
will obtain forty, most important among which will bc artificial silk, which
can bc manufactured from thc pulp.
Thc process is one of fibre elimination, which makes possible thc usc of
every particle.    In Canada there are
92 pulp mills, and shipments wiil commence from the mine early next ycar.
One  of   thc  by-products   from     thc
sulphate  is,stock  salts,  which   is  as
effective as glauber and can bc supplied when the industry is  fully developed iu carload lots at a small cost.

roused to a fresh onslaught as the

Ruggles, not only because of thc dying injunctions of the master whom
he revered, but because he knew the
part which Ruggles had played in the
defense of Hamid- Pasha, and which
had enabled the venerable man to die
peacefully and as became his dignity instead of like a dog at the hands
of the detested Bulgarians.
But it had seemed to Ruggles that
during his fever there had been a

quietly in and out of his room, with

The Modest. Man Often Measures Up
Larger Than the  Cocksure
Peter McArthur, who is Ontario's
foremost literary farmer, makes an
interesting statement in reference to
Leader Drury's job of cabinet-making. Peterdias been talking with Mr.
Drury and has learned from him
that'of thc forty-five members of the
United Farmers elected to thc legislature, not' one has approached him
with a request" for cabinet honors.
More than that, every one of these
farmers to whom Mr. Drury offered
a seat in the cabinet has hesitated
and suggested to him that somebody
else would be a better man for the
All of which goes to show that
among the farmer majority there are
very few, if any, self-seekers. Thc
fact augurs well for the success of the
ncw regime at Queen's Park.   --
Of course a cynic might say that
the farmers merely know their own
limitations and realize that thcy arc
not fit to undertake the control of
governmental departments. It often
happens, though,- .that the .modest
man, conscious of his own limitations, measures- up larger than, the
cocksure<chap, because the modest
man may have higher ideals of duty
and responsibility than has the other
fellow.���Hamilton Herald.
London Forced
To Expand Upward
Question of Skyscrapers Is Being
Revived Because of the High
Price of Property
The old question of whether London is ito have skyscrapers is being
revived -because of thc high price
of property in the bijuiness section
and the lack of space in office buildings. Thc government buildings in
Whitehall <arc four storeys high, but
it has been found nccessaiy to add
a storey to the War Office to meet
thc demands, of the department. One
well-known architect in touch with
thc government's plans expressed thc
opinion that unless the new and old
ministries were content, to do ��� thcir
���work outside the area devoted to
governmental activities skyscrapers
were inevitable in Whitehall. Geri-.
crally speaking, however, London
does not like tall buildings. Perci
Tubbs, past president, of the Society
of Architects, declared that if thc
skyscraper was to coitic.it would be
necessary to widen the streets. "But
space in-London is not so scarce as
il is in New York, which is an island,"
lie said: American architects who arc

for .permission to extend the', mam

the future, and have met with no encouragement whatever.

from me." By the cup is meant his
death on the cross. He did not desire
to escape the cross. No doubt it was
most grievous s to him to face its
shame, but he pressed on, knowing
that for this cause hc had come into
the world (John 12:27, 28; cf. Hcb.

Scientist Predicts  That  Ocean
Be Crossed in Three
Tesla, lhe great electrician, who
discovered lhe alternating current by
which we can penetrate great distances, thinks the time is coming
when we may fly eight miles above
the eaith at a speed of 1,000 miles
an hour. This is no guess with thc
inventor, il is ihc result of close
calculation *"m higher mathematics.
He believes it will then be possible
for a business man in Ncw York
city to step into a hermetically sealed steel fusilagc at 3.30 p.m. and
reach his hotel in London three
hours later in time "for'dinner.
To bc able speedily to cross thc
ocean an allitude plane will bc
needed that can rise above the storm
limit and not become weather bound
as wcrc thc aviators who rcccnty
flew acioss.
Samuel V. Mott, of the Aeio Club of
America, believes it will be possible
to fly as high' above the earth as 15
ov 20 miles in ta craft specially designed for high flying. This will require a machine that will work in
such highly' rarificd air and provide
a ccil'ain amount of oxygen for navigators and passengers, likewise
warmth in a temperature much be'"
low zero. It has been discovered
lhat for every 1,000 feet of ascent
the air pressure is diminished one
half pound per square inch. Air
navigation at high altitudes undoubtedly would result in high increase of
Passengers and pilot would have
to be entirely enclosed' just as an
ocean diver is enclosed. The human
body is adjusted to an air pressure
of 15 pounds to the rquare inch. If
that pressure were ieduced aboul
three pounds, as it would bc at a
height of eight miles, thc aviator's
car drums would burst and blood
would flow tlirough_thc_ pores _ and
ooze out of the body. Thc effect
would bc like that of bringing a deep
sea fish, accustomed to living a mile
below thc surface, to thc surface of
the water. Thc fish simply explodes
for lack of the pressure which its
body is built to withstand.
Te��Ia believes thc air craft of the
future will havc its power transmitted to it through the air by wireless
tiansniission. Distance, says Tesla,
is absolutely of no consequence. The
"airplane would receive thc same power whether it was 12,000 miles away
or immediately above thc plant.
And here is a thought of Tesla's
in regard to the next war if there be
one: "In thc future nations will fight
each other thousands of miles apart
and no soldier will see his enemy. In
fact future war will not bc conducted!
by men directly but by the forces
which if let loose may well destroy
civilization completely." If war
comes again Tesla looks for thc extensive use of self-propelled vehicles
carrying enormous charges of explosives which will bc sent from any
point to another to do thcir destructive work and no human being
aboard to guide them.
Saskatchewan   Schools < Commended
for Their Progressive
High praise is given to Saskatchewan schools in a bulletin on "Education in Parts of the British Empire," which has just been issued by
the Bureau of Education, Departfnent
of the Interior, Washington, D.C.
After commenting on the progress in
education made in recent years in
Manitoba, the report states: ,
"The democratic ideas of Manitoba
arc even more pronounced in the
province just to the west, Saskatchewan;, but centralization more akin to
that of the eastern provinces has asserted itself in the public school system of the latter. This centralisation,
however, has not lessened the deep,
popular interest in the schools. Perhaps thc most convincing proof of
this was the educational survey of-the
province decreed by ordcr-in-council
and undertaken during thc latter half
of the year 1917.
"The public has. been favorably prepared for this survey by thc activities
of the Public Education League,
which had launched public meetings
and led up to the proclamation of a
public holiday by the premier, on
which���the needs .of educational reform we're"emphasised at rallies held
at,a number of points. -All "this timc
there has been no lapse in public interest in education, as is shown- by
thc fact that, since the organization
of provincial government for Saskatchewan in 1905, school districts had
been organized at thc extraordinary
rate of one a day.
"With the tremendous increase in
the amount of routine work thus de
volving upon the: department of edu
cation, serious discussion arose as to
whether the school unit with a board
of three trustees was not too small,
and whether the organization of
boards of seven members, as for the
municipalities, would not be better
able to handle a much larger territory organized as a municipality. The
matter is as yet.unsettled, but indications are that an organic change
will be brought about by the stirring
of public interest.
"The progressive nature of the
people and of the schools of Saskat
chewan was well brought out in thc
findings of thc survey to which re
fcrence has been made. The strongly
centralized system, it was agreed, had
been of very great service in thc early
primitive days, but thc findings bore
out the belief- that a system more adapted to a largely increased population, and especially one giving consideration lo local needs, was now required.

The day is getting closer when
the United States will have to do
something in Mexico. The Americans are real meek and patient
over the way in-^which so many
citizens of fehe United 'States have
been treated in tbe laud of peppers
and greasers. Ife took an exfera

far from San Diego, from invading
Mexicalli and revenging the death
of an American, who was killed in
the Mexican town by a Mexican
policeman, apparently without provocation.

It's easy to be a "kicker"���the
majority of men are. It's hard to
be a "doer"���that's why they
stand out so prominently in the
world. In any oflice or occupation you can always pick out the
"kickers" and the "doers." Tbe
kickers nevej kick themselves
ahead���unless it's out the door.
The doers are too busy to kick and
