On Tuesday, Augr 15th, John
Williamson, a resident of Ana-
couda died at the farm of Walter
Wartman, where he had been
"employed:"'" The" deceased- was
born in England some sixty-five
years ago and at an early age
migrated to Montana and from
there came to this district over
23 years ago. During recent
years he lived in"semi-retirement
but took a very active part in the.
school affairs of Anaconda and
until recently was secretary to
the Schoal Board. Upon learning the particulars of death,
Dr. C. M. Kingston of Grand
Forks, found it unnecessary to
hold an inquest as death was due
to-heart failure. The deceased
had no relatives in- this country."
The "funeral arrangements haye
not yet been completed.
Sunflowers are much' earlier
this year which is a pity for two
reasons. We will miss their stalwart, challenge to the coming
fall and the birds will miss them
as they gather in September for
their migration South. Nearly
all birds love^ sunflower seeds.
And all the song birds love them
too. What a musical place a
garden of sunflowers when the
summer .days are going! This
year the sunflowers are a giant
size. We have seen a small
canary perched on the edge of a
ripened sunflower a foot in
diameter and stretch himself half
way across the disc for the plumb
seed that grow -in the centre.
These birds don't sing much
when they are full. No bird or
animal is at its best just after a
big, dinner. Even the sweetest
of all warblers, the gifted young
lady must refrain if she would
sing. Indeed the stomach as
nature made it is a curious thing.
It is persistent in its demands.
Compared with it the soul makes
but a feeble call. When it is full
it wants oblivion. It is the
stomach of society^that wants reform and when it gets it, it wants
to go to sleep.

To Explore
British Guinea
Late This Year Expsdition Will
Attempt Perilous Journey
Three times the size of tlie Bi-i'.ioli
Isles, New Guinea has been described
by Miss Beatrice Grimshaw as the
only parf of the world that today remains barred to humanity. Late this
year an expedition starts that will
attempt the first crossing, and to I
carry exploration into areas wide of
the main line, laid down practically
north to south. Maps give a false
idea of the mystery land, indicating
ranges of mountains and peaks that
have only been sighted from the coastal districts or from the Fly River.
Parties of Australians got in seventeen years ago during a gold boom,
finding the precious metal, but only
���10 per cent, returned; fever accounted
for the rest. Impenetrable jungle
and immense swamps have been the
barrier to humanity. Guinea gains
new interest now that the war has
added thc German territory to the
British.
- The leader of the projected expedition is Neil McNeill, and his second in
command, Lucius Conolly. Both are
Fellows of the Royal Geographical Society, and have had experience In New
Guinea. Mr. McNeill, an Australian,
spoilt two years there on lhe Government survey, and, while hopeful, he
does not minimize the difficulties.
The crossing is about 500 miles.
Lauding at a point on the north coast,
in longfitude 142 degs. 13., the explorers anticipate in about six months
reaching Mount Blucher, 150 miles inland, which thus far has only been
glimpsed. This may prove the most
troublesome part of the journey, as
the mountainous country .is covered
with thick forests. ...The next stage

Tibetans    Spend     Their      Lives
Struggle for Existence
Much interest the world over has
been taken in the supreme but ineffective effort of experienced mountain
climbers to reach the top of Mount
Everest, the world's highest mountain
peak.
Cold, hardship, and danger every
moment was the lot of the climbers,
i'or it has always been V moot question as to whether human beings
could, by physical effort climb to such
a height as 26,000 feet and live.
Just what would be really gained by
reaching the summit at the expense
of their lives, is clear only to the
scientists. Men always do strive to
attain the unattainable.
Airmen have flown their machines
at a height exceeding that of Mount
Everest but the cases are hardly
parallel. The climber is progressing
from crag to crag through his own
physical effort. The airman conserves his strength and allows the
machine to do the work.
An aviator also breathes oxygen
from cylinders when Hying at high altitudes. But cylinders of oxygen are
very uncomfortable and heavy to
carry; and, apart from this, to climb
while wearing a mask over the mouth
is by no means easy.
A curious fact has been brought to
light by these mountain climbers and
tliat is that tlie lower slopes of the
mountain are quite thickly populated.
Tliere are monasteries 16,000 feet
up, and, higher still, solitary hermits
were found living in caves and supporting life on a daily ration of a few
dried barley kernels.
To these Tibetans, perched upon the
roof of the world, life from the cradle
to the grave resolves itself into one
continuous struggle for. existence. Yet
they stay there uncomplainingly and
spend their lives on the mountain
slopes. Several important \shrines
are also to be found on the mountain
sides, to which villagers and an increasing stream of visitors pay visits.
A gallant attempt was made to
reach the peak of the world's highest
mountain, and its failure by no means
ends man's ambition to get there.
IKE I he-Ibex, another favorite A B C book animal is the Yak. Almost
always the "V" page has a large picture ot a Yak, and they are generally painted white or gray, which anyone who knows anything at
all about Yaks nmst realize is Quite, quite wrong.
ln America you will never see any Yaks; but on the other hand if
you should travel in Asia, and especially in Central Asia, you would soon become accustomed to them, and you would very quickly find that instead of being a pale color they are very dark; in fact, they are brownish-black with rust
colored backs. - -. .
If you can picture to yourself an ox-like animal which, after it had been
created and firmly placed on its four feet, had then had a long fringe of hair
that dragged nearly on the ground drawn completely around it, you may have
some idea of tlie Yak; even though its tail spreads into a bushy tuft, its head
and back are thinly covered and are almost smooth.
t looks gentle enough, I suppose, because fuzzy creatures, as a rule, don't
seem like dangerous lighters; but heaven help any hunter who has been unfortunate enough to only wound and not kill a Yak. It will turn and furiously charge its enemy and. with the help of its long sharp horns, soon put an
end of him. ��� ���
But there are far more Humans who make a friend and worker of the
Yak, than those who hunt and kill it; for, with a little patience and kindness
il can be tamed and trained as easily as can a horse or an ox. People living
in the same countries as the Yak have found this out and have used 'his
knowledge to their profit; for Ihey not only ride it but tise.it as a beast of
burden . . . just as we use the horse and ox. Also, people milk it just
as we milk the cow.
Pimzie learned all this once upon a time when he was wandering around
the mountains of Thibet, and after he reached home he told the other three
Brownies all about everything concerning Yaks. "He also told them that
Yaks, when wild, live up in lhe cold gray highlands.
"But I shouldn't think tliat they would find enough food there!" exclaimed Lorykins, who thinks more of eating, perhaps, than anything else in life
.   .    .    except sleeping.
"Oli," Pimzie answered, "I went up tojhe highlands/too, and I especially
noticed any amount of wiry, long grass which is just what Yaks like. I also
noticed that they are very lazy animals.*'
"How?" Lorykins asked, springing up in sudden interest.
Pimzie  grinned.      He  couldn't  help ��� ���,
it, for he knew that Lorykins was so awfully interested simply because he, too,
is so "lazy. YVe are all especially keen
about learning of- people or things that
reminds us of ourselves, and lazy, fat little Lorykins is just the same as the rest
of us.
"They are lazy in this way," replied
Pimzie. "Early in the morning as soon
as the sun wakes them, they eat just as
much as their tummies can hold and
then Ihey drop down on tlie ground and
spend all the rest of the day thinking about it and chewing the cud. They
are like cows in this respect. Well, boys," he cried, springing up suddenly,
"I feel like a swim.     How about it?"
They all jumped up from the cool moss and raced as fast as they could
toward the Get-Big-Pool. ,

"I saw the great Napoleon with my
own eyes during the retreat from Moscow (in 1812). , He was wearing a
green cavalry cloak," was the statement made to a special correspondent
of the Paris Intraisigeant by M. Mecis-
las Krasinsky,, a landed proprietor of
Volhynia, in Poland, who states that
he is now 132 years of age. x"
- Reporting to the police of Warsaw
tliat he had been robbed' of 50,000
niarks in a tramway car, Krasinsky
entered the date of his birth in the
-police boks as 1790.

Preparations^ upon a monumental
scale for the marketward movement"'
of Western Canada's 1922 grain crop
have been made by the Canadian National Railways. Hundreds of giant
locomotives and tens of thousands oi!
freight cars have been put through
the railway's shops at. Winnipeg and
made fit and ready for the greatest
traction effort of the year���and of
many years. ���"*-
This mobilization of equipment has
been in progress since the beginning
of the year, withllie result that'Canadian National Railways are now fii'ly
prepared, wailing and even eager to
gejt to the business of hauling grain.
If all the engines ready for service
were placed end to end, they-would
stretch out for a distance of more
than ten miles;  while if all the cars
- Y
prepared  since the first of the>year
for the movement of grain were plac-'
ed end to eild, they would stretch out
approximately 350 miles.
x
The    history    of    the. preparation
starts with tlie desire on the part of
the management' to ease the unemployment situation last winter, and at
the same time accomplish some useful purpose. The management conceived the. idea of putting into the
maximum of efficiency all of the bad-
order equipment on western lines.
Full staffs of men were set fo work
in the two great shops' and yards, tind
ailing locomotives and freight cars
headed in for treatment.
'The locomotives ready to move the
crop have an average length, of 013
feet. Some conception of'the enormous power represented in these iron
steeds may T>e gleaned from the !*l.al,o-
ment' ;of fact -tliat assuming them to
lie equal to the Mikado, callable of
drawing 4;540 tons; the hauling capacity of these.'locomotives would . h:_
121,520,339 bushels of"wheat if all lhc
engines were hauling capacity fraii-.;.
at the same time. In other words,-
the motive-power prepared by tlio
Canadian National 'for moving -tho
crop, is equal to the task of hauling
about one-third of the total crop oi

Grows Serious As
Result Of Strike
'Ottawa.���There will be a consider-"
able, shortage of anthracite coal, and
the utmost care should be exercised to
conserve anthracite supplies for use
during the coldest winter months, according to a statement issued by the
Federal Advisory Fuel-Committee. Attention is drawn to the fact that there
is now over four months' shortage in
the production of anthracite, and an
equal' period in respect to about 60
per cent ..of the bituminous production. The strike in .the United States
coal mines, it is pointe"d out, dated,
trim April I last. The'stoppage in
production, which...will be five months
if the mines do not resume work before September 1, cannot be overtaken in time.J.0 meet'the'needs of this
coming winter-.'
The members of the committee,
Charles Magrath and Fred .McCort,
discussed Canada's requirements
with the'Washington authorities and
witlVa number or large operators in
coal and railways. They were accompanied by Major Graham Bell,
Deputy Minister of Railways, Major
Bell lias been giving consideration
to the requirements of Canadian railways.' , - .     -
The statement issued by Ihe committee, in part, follows: __
"Pending the resumption of production, the United States Government has set up a fuel administration for the purpose oj distributing
the soft coal now being mined, which
is treated as an    emergency   supply.
The fuel administration has established priority in the distribution of
this bituminous coal, and with these
priorities, as'well as with conditons
respecting payment and freight
charges, Canadian consumers participating must pay_ In -this respect,
Canadian and American consumers
are treated alike. Canadian provincial governments interested in this
supply of emergency coal will be required to appoint" a fuel administrator,
who will pass on local requisitions,
and who will-be required to send
them, accompanied 'by a guarantee by
one of the chartered banks of Canada
covering purchase price and ��� rail
charges, to the committee at Ottawa,
which will be the recognized medium
of communication with the American
authorities. '
"Active co-operation between local
dealers and "municipalities is - asked
for. Co-ordinating their activities
will be the provincial authorities,
who will have to do with distribution within the province and with
financing, so far as public financing
may be necessary. The functions of
the Federal Advisory Fuel Commission will be largely supervisory. It
will act for _Canada*as a whole in matters of international and interprovin-
cial negotiations and arrangements,
and will facilitate - importation and
transportation���a matter which will,
develop importance vin the period
which will-follow the adjustment, of
the present rail and mining difficulties
on the other side."
Refuse Wheat
Board Chairmanship
Ottawa.���H. W. Wood has defin-
itely refused to accept the, chairmanship of the Wheat Boards it
was reported here on good authority. Mr. W-ood was nominated
by the Governments of. Saskatchewan and Alberta after James
Stewart, of Winnipeg, had declined to accept the chairmanship.
The opinion is gaining strength in
official circles that owing to the
difficulty in securing a satisfactory chairman, there will be no
Wheat Board to handle this year's
cropland its organization will be
deferred until next year. It is
understood that if the effort to
organize a board to handle the
1922 crop is to be continued, the
; chairmanship .will be next offered to Hon. T. A. Crerar, leader of
the National Progressive party.
WESTERN /EDITORS
LOOKS FOR EXTENSIVE COMMERCIAL
DEVEOPMENT IN ARCTIC REGIONS
Toronto).���"The age of exploration
of the Arctic regions is iver; the age
of commercial development has begun.
1 intend lo devote the rest of my'life,
not to the' exploration of the north-
lands, but to the building up of a
greater Canada." Thus^spoke the explorer, Vilhjalmur Stel'anssoon on the
occasion of a short visit to Toronto.
"1 venture <^to'prophesy," he declared^
"that within 50 years from now there
will ��� b'e less land in the northern
hemisphere thai is considered worthless because of cold- than there is land
In the south that is considered worthless because of its being dry."
Discussing the proposed    flight   ol
ihe    explorer,    Amundsen,  over  the
north pole, Mr. Stefansson could see
no reason why it should nqt succeed. "If he does succeed it will
be merely the first flight In a continuous series," said the explorer. " "The
conditions are ideal; it is only the ill-
informed 'who believe that flying conditions oyer the pole in summer are
more difficult than over the Atlantic.
As a matter of fact, they are better,
because the temperature is about as
warm as over the Atlantic and -is
more uniform, because there is no
sunset and the "daylight is continuous.
The flight over the pole will constitute no distance record. The aerial
journey from Newfoundland to England has already been accomplished,
and that Is longer."

Department Active
More     Work     Being     Done     Than
Generally Known, Says R. J. C.
Stead
"Winnipeg.���Seldom, if ever, had the
assistance of- the Union of- Canadian
Municipalities, been invoked more extensively", i or  exercised  with greater'
success, than during   the   past   year,
according to the report submitted by.
A. D. 'Shibley, Secretary-Treasurer, at
the convention here.
Reviewing the union's offfcial activities during the year, Mr. Shibley
mentioned the, application of the Bell
Telephone Company/"for increased
rates, the problem created by the flow
of. immigration to the cities, where
there was.not work for all, and tlie re-
ductioii in the check tax," for which he
gave the union credit,, involving a
saving in municipal funds of hundreds
of thousands annually.
The. financial position ofthe union
was said to be most satisfactory.:
Invitations for the 1923 convention
have been ^received from Halifax,
Windsor, Fort William, Regina and
Edmonton.
... Taking up the cudgels In defence
of the" Department of Immigration
and Colonization, R. J. C. Stead,
Director of Publicity for the department, declared that more was being
done to bring immigrants to Canada
than many Canadians appeared.to. believe. -
"I have been asked," said Mr.
Stead, "when, the Gbvernment*"pro-
poses to resume' its immigration- activities, and at the very moment
that question was . asked advertisements were appearing in no. less than
four thousand newspapers in the" United States. '
Mr. Stead said there were many
things, about .campaigns of this kind
which could not be shouted from the
house-tops, but, because department
officials failed to shout, it must not
be ^suppose that the department
was inactive.

The party will leave Winnipeg

Bad Crop Weather In Britain
Need for More Sunshine is'Imperative
To Save Harvest
London.���English crop reports continue to emphasize that- more sun-
s'hine is imperative to save the harvest. What will be the total damage
caused by the torrential rains recently, it is impossible at the moment to
ascertain but if there had been no
downpour and withjinore sunny weathj
er for the .remainder of the season,
Great Britain's wheat crop this year
would probably have proved exceptional.  ..���
. Potato growers had good crops,
but prices have fallen to a point below the cost of production, in consequence of heavy importations from
Holland and Denmark.
Dr.  Steinmetz Says  Radio  May Turn

Number Of
Prisoners Increasing
Alleged  that  About  80  Per  Cent,  of
Inmates    of -- Penitentiaries    Are
Foreigners
Winnipeg.���Brigadier-General W. S.
Hughes, Superintendent of Penitentiaries, addressed the Union of Canadian Muncipalities convention here on
the Canadian system, of penitentiaries
and how the municipalities may assist them. The number of inmates
In the Canadian institutions had more
than' doubled since 1918, he said, but
he gave no explanation for this fact.
General Hughes strongly advocated
the segregation of young\ "first timers" and youths who were sent to the
penitentiaries from the "old timers"
and "repeaters" and older offenders.
The speaker suggested that the
municipalities could help the work
of reformation of penitentiary inmates by supplying employment, not,
only for inmates'who left the penitentiaries, but also for those who still remained in those institutionsVby giving orders for goods to the penitentiaries.
About 80 per cent, of the inmates
i of Canadian penitentiaries were people of foreign origin, that is, not British subjects, General Hughes said.
This applied particularly to the penitentiaries in the yestern provinces.

Winnipeg.���Problems of unemployment and old age pensions were dealt
with at the Union ot Canadian Municipalities in convention here. Recommendations that tiie Federal Government assume full financial responsibility for unemployment and distress
amongst ex-service" men and Provincial and Federal Governments contribute one-third each to the relief of unemployment other than ex-soldiers
were adopted following a lengthy discussion.
Many delegates declared the municipalities were not getting fair treatment from the Governments and the
executive was instructed to urge the
Federal Government to change the
law so as municipalities could collect
from Provincial Government a share
of* the money expended in relief.
Alderman Lesage, of the city of Quebec, said the city had spent over $150,-
000 for relief, of which $40,000 should
have been repaid by the provincial
authorities and the Federal Government, but no settlement had yet been
made. '"'���' V
The Federal Government, in a resolution sanctioned by the convention,
is asked to introduce at the next session of Parliament an old age pension
bill to provide for the aged indigent
people residing In the Dominion.

The Scandal-Monger
^���
Personal scandal-mongering is
the vice of the malicious' weak.
The scandal-mongerer is a murderer���or more often a murderess���
who lacks courage. It is safer to
stab the innocent and unsuspecting
mind behind the cloak of friendship. The only safeguard is such
frank and loyal natures as Hannah
More, who quelled the epidemic of
scandal-mongering in her village by
the simple formula of putting on
her bonnet and saying, --Friend,
come at once with me and eeej if
fchis thing be true."
But; scandal-mongering is not
limited to private assassination.
The same conditions of small town
atmosphere which creates a miasma
in which scandal thrives, affects
communities, public personages
and public institutions. It-functions in a readiness on the part of a
public to believe the worst of its
public men, to premise that every
official is incompetent. Malicious
suggestion and innuendo ie accepted
as proof.
' 'What a man thinkefeh in his
heart that he is," is true of cities
as well as men. , A right condition
pf soul is as necessary for the community as it is for the Individual.
���'-". The great specific for the scandal
. rrionger is light.' How great a force
7f or good it would be jf every,  cifei-
sten who, is made the repository for
.a scandalous.' story,   were, to take
{immediate steps. to find but the
truth.of the matter by. communicating 7with the party affected, Noth-,
i'ng would help more quickly to dispel the miasa, to create a feeling of
'."-. security and health and to make.
V public life safer for men and women who value their"good7 repnta-

The attention of the holders of
the Ave and  a  half per  cent war
loan bonds maturing December 1,
1922, is directed to the offer of the
Minister of Finance to renew the
loan on favorable terms.    The last
Canadian loan was placed in New
York at a satisfactory price.    The
Minister   is   making   his   present
financial operation  entirely  a domestic one b}* offering  to exchange
the maturing bonds  for new bonds
bearing the same rate of interest,,
running for either five years or ten
years as the bondholder  may prefer.    A further inducement to the
investor is that he'receives a bonus
of    one   month's   interest.      The
terms offered are  decidedly  favorable   to   the   investor _. aud   it   is
probable that a large  part of the
maturing   loan  will  be   renewed.
Arrangements for the exchange of
the bonds can be made at any of
the chartered banks.    Holders who
do not wish to reinvest will bo paid
in cash on the 1st of December.
