experiments Being Made to Transmit
Power Hundreds of Miles
The human voice has been sent by
wireless across three thousand miles
of space; telegraphic signals have
been sent twice that distance and
more. Now comes the news of experiments being made to send power
by wireless for hundreds of miles.
Imagine the coal -at the pit-head being burned into electricity, and the
electric current sent by wireless to a|arcl "Baiiaer" ���ts h^e been grown

prove as great a blessing to the farmers of Western Canada as did the discovery of "Marquis" wheat.
It was in 1915 that Sir. Kite noticed
a single root of some sixteen stools
growing on some land he was preparing for a garden. On maturing, the
plant appeared to be something new
in this farmer's experience, so he
gathered the grains and seeded'them
the following year. Hail and other
misfortunes have dogged his footsteps
but by last fall Mr. Kite had gathered
enough seed to put some forty acres
into crop. After next year's harvest
there should be enough of this new
grain to allow its being put on the
market commercially, and to be tested out on a wider scale. Samples
havo already been sent to the Peace
River and to Idaho, and enthusiastic
reports were received from both these
points. As the Peace River farmer
put it: "It has turned out so well that
I will take a carload if you can let me
have it."
Both the new-strain and the stand-
er transmitted to a ship whose engines are fed from a land station
while she crosses the Atlantic, so that

tions; so a comparison between these
two varieties will prove interesting.

Star Of Gandhi Has Declined
Popularity  of Prince Triumphs  Over
Organized Insult
To those who "have been watching
the progress of the tour of India by
the Prince of Wales, the news of his
victory over prejudice must come as a
very welcome announcement. When
the tour began, there was every reason to ' anticipate its outcome with
genuine anxiety. One of the most
powerful agitators the Indian Empire,
has known for many years, Gandhi,
had boasted openly that he could and
would compel the natives to abstain
in toto. form any participation in the
public ceremonies. At the outset it
looked as if his boast would be vindicated, for the Hartal was observed
pretty generally. The Prince, however, took the bull by the horns when
he dismounted after the official parade and mingled afoot among the natives.
. The East Indian, while singularly
wise in many things, is a child when
an appeal is made to his imagination.
This idea of a Royal Prince moving
among them as one of them, without
any obvious guard of honor, without
any apparent effort. to avoid trouble,
but just walking about,, like any curious young man out sightseeing, made
a tremendous impression upon the
Oriental mind.
And the news spread���as news can
spread in the east without the aid of
electric wires., 'From that time on,
the Hartal was less and less observed,
until upon the arrival of the Prince at
Calcutta, where Gandhi had hoped to
demonstrate completely his powers,
tlie Royal visitors was accorded a reception that swept" from the minds of
official India all worry about the future. The popularity or the -young
Prince "has triumphed over '-.prejudice,
over calculated hatred and organized
insult. The star of Gautlhi has declined, so far as the Prince of Wales
is concerned.:
Meat and Canned
Foods Inspection
Precautions "Taken to Detect Disease
and Safeguard the Consumer
The inspection of meat and canned
food products'carried on by the Dominion Department of Agriculture is
a matter closely related to the health
and physical well-being of the people
of Canada. The Veterinary Director-
General has at his command for this
work a small army of trained inspectors who are constantly on the alert
to detect disease and to safeguard the
consumer. Every abattoir and recognized slaughter house is inspected and
the meat that goes out is approved.
The canning factories and their products also come under careful supervision, and certificates are given guai-
anteeing that the products are wholesome -in every respect. . Every animal intended tor slaughter is inspected and passed upon. The Meat and
Canned Poods Act providers that no
animal that has entered the.yards or
pens of an inspected establishment
shall be removed unless** permission
in' writing be granted by the inspector. Animals that are found to be
ever so slightly affected by disease
are rejected. Not.only the animals
but the carcasses alter death have to
be passed as sound. If the inspection
warr^ts, the meat is marked "Canada approved," and then may either
be exported or��� sold for home consumption. Sausages, canned meats and
portions intended for cure, may be
prepared only from carcases or portions thereof tliat have been so marked. There are at present in Canada
upwards of fifty inspected establishments, and from 82 plants that reported to the branch, thc output was
valued at 3175,133,000. In all, upwards of threj3lv hundred men are engaged in the work of inspection, all
being veterinary graduates and well
posted on the duties they have to "perform.

More than half of all of the people
in the world live in Asia and have
yellow or brown skins.
. These people have changed the
course of history many times in the
past and they may do it again in the
future particularly if they should
learnx the laws of'sanitation as we
know them.
��� There'are so many men in Asia who
chew the betel vnut, which dyes the
teeth red, that it is a "good guess to
say that one-tenth of all of the men
now li/ing dye their teeth red.
Chewing-the betel nut may be a
pleasant pastime, but the bright red
stain will never become popular in
this country.
Over here we seem to favor green
stains for children's teeth and brown
or black stains for the teeth of adults.
���All of us think a Mongolian is a
queer "gink" to deliberately make a
habit of chewing an astringent nut
that will leave its mark; yet we daily
neglect to remove, or have removed,
the various shades of green and brown
stains that obscure the teeth that Nature gave us.
All stains should be removed ..from
the teeth. If ��� you cannot get them
off yourself go to someone who knows
how to take them off.       "-
The green stain -upon children's
teeth must be removed immediately
if it is not to be followed by caries,
or decay of the teeth.
It is tlie normal that is beautiful.
Keep your teeth a. normal color so
that when you do smile you'will get
an encore.

The Proper Spirit
Settler In Alberta Who. Has the Right
An" oft quoted truism during the
war was "The spirit of the troops is
excellent." It would appear that in
these less exciting times, the spirit of
at least one. settler in Western Canada is excellent, lor the following letter was recently received by the Department of Immigration and Colonization from a young man at Lacombe,
Alberta. .
Some months ago I forwarded to
you a'record of my experience since
I filed on my homestead in Alberta.
You were kind enough to acknowledge
the same and to congratulate me on
my success Since I wrote to you
conditions have altered considerably.
I myself am just about holding, my
own but cannot see my way to make
my farm pay a .dividend while stock
and farm produce is at. such a low
figure' 'in comparison to the cost of
machinery and ''manufactured goods.
But I am "not .content just to hold my
own; I prefer tp do better than that
if it is possible for me to do so. For
I realize'that the land and Canada are
not to" blame. The land is honest
enough and Canada-will do, her very
best��� for her citizens. . It ls just-the
present adverse conditions which are
affecting the whole "world'- which governs qiir: markets.'. The "farmer who
will economize and keep on-improving
his land "and herds will yet find himself a winner. .. I. am - doing all. the.
work-'on my farm to save" paying for.
hired help and can't see anyUnng but
a good future ahead of-me. I'have
met a.lot of. people from the east who
"were "astounded -when; they got; here

Starts With Petrol and Then Runs on
Crude Oil ^
The use of steam for driving road
rollers has' been the universal practice
��� for so long that the change to the internal combustion engine strikes one
with a peculiar degree of surprise. An
oil-driven road roller has,- however, so
many advantages in countries where
coal and coke are scarce that "its development might have been confidently expected. At a recent transport
exhibition, in London a British firm
showed a very attractive type of motor road roller weighing eight tons.
It is a three-wheel.machine driven by
a 20 horsepower engine funning at
1,000 revolutions per minute. Petrol
is used for starting, and afterwards
the engine runs on crude oil. : A sin-'
gle lever- effects v all speed ^changes
giving three speeds���two and a half,
one and one-half miles.per hour���forward or backward. Ample power is
afforded for hill climbing, as the engine runs at full speed when" the roller is going at its lowest speed.- V
Waterworks For a Dollar
Simple Plan to Se.cure Running Water
��� 7 , lntthe Farm Home ���.."���<.���
A simple homemade contrivance for
supplying water for' the kitchen can
be constructed at very small expense
as .follows:;7.A large barrel, tight
enough to hold.water, is placed on a
platform in a shaded ..spot, such as a
porch or a-wood shed. It must be
high enough that the. water will run
from it by gravitation through a pipe
to a sink in the kitchen where it may
be turned on and. off by means of,a
faucet. Another pipe carries thc dirty
water from the sink to. a waste barrel
outside the house. Someone must
fill the clean water barrel every morn-
hig and empty the dirty water barrel
every evening if the plan is to. work
satisfactorily. The cost is trifling
and the convenience great. If children can;do this chore ,. and ���vfiave
mother, many- weary-'steps'it will be a
great' comfortVV Sometime it . will,
doubtless,;be replaced by an electric
or other power system. 7 7 .

Briand's resignation came with dramatic-suddenness in - the Chamber of
Deputies, for the Premier had brought
the opposing-members of the cabinet
into accord with his policy,; and, by a
powerful speech in the chamber had
apparently won oyer the great majority to-his side. His blunt eloquence
evoked a tremendous ovation and
when he abruptly declared his.intention of withdrawing from the government, the members of ��� thoi chamber
seemed overwhelmed.
Although the retirement of premier
Briand was unexpected, it was apparent from the beginning that he felt
keen resentment against the many obstacles placed In his way in \the Important negotiations In which he had
been engaged. Ho had the appearance ..of a man aged and physically
fatigued throughout his entire speech.
Notwithstanding this, however, seldom has Briand risen   to   the   high
suppressed emotion and facing his
.'colleagues on the ministerial benches,
he said: "A-statesman has no right

Diversified Farming
Hon. _W.   R.- Motherwell   Speaks
Banquet.at Saskatoon
' Saskatoon.���The    west    has    been
through as bad, If not   worse,   times
than   the    present,    and has passed
'through  them with success,  just as
��     she was passing through the crisis of
today, if western farmers'1 will only ap-
**1*" ply 'themselves- to -developing a diversified type of farming and a crop rotation    system    suited to the country.
Such was the note of optimism which
was sounded at the banquet given by
the Saskatoon Exhibition Board to the
Agricultural     Societies'     Association
here by a number of-speakers, including Hon.7VV..-R. Motherwell, minister
.of ���agriculture in the Dominion Government;  Hon. C. M. Hamilton,, provincial    minister    of highways;   and
Hon. J. A. Maharg, M.L.A.     Each of
the speakers emphasized the Import-
/ ance of cattle, and    particularly   of
dairy cows, as a   safe   and   definite
Bource of income to the farmer.
Of special interest was the opinion
expressed    by    Hon.^Mr. Motherwell
on the problem of Southwest Saskatchewan and Southern Alberta.     The
minister was   convinced    that   these
lands, except where the sandhills lay,
could be successfully farmed, if the
right crop rotation were adopted, and
if the setttej,sjp^actised_mixed_farmt
"ing."-   There   had    been   men,   Mr.
Motherwell pointed out, who had,.said
that the country should be abandoned,
but It should never be abandoned as
y long as there  were Individuals who
could make a^success of their farms,
and-there were such all through the
district.     Diversification     had   been
preached for ten years.     Every now
and then the west made a dash at It,
and then went back to grain growing.
/ But the time was coming nearer when
the west would be forced to stay with
Mr.   Maharg,
groceries with eggs. It was impossible to change the climate, he said
but it was possible to change the
method: o f farming to comply ��� with
the provisions of nature.1 Complimenting Mr. Motherwell on his appointment, he remarked:
"We've got a minister of agricul-"
ture 3uch .as we never had before,
insofar as western agricultural conditions are concerned, for he knows
them like a book."
Mr. Maharg went on to state that if
thc Saskatchewan farmer "-evolved tlie
right system of farming, an Immigration department with ^elaborate
machinery Nwould be unnecessary.
The best Immigrant was the contented settler. Once the country was
occupied by such men, it was merely
a question of selecting the best from
those who wanted to come in.
Marked Decrease In
Juvenile Crime
Report Shows Fewer Convictions During Year of 1920
Ottawa.���Juvenile crime Is on the
downward 'trend. This Is pointed out
in the forty-fifth annual report- of the
criminal statistics of Canada.
"It is noted," says the report, "that
juvenile crime is on the downward
trend.'. -In 1919,' it was shown that
20.3 per cent, of the total, convictions
of indictable offences was of children
under 16 years, which figure Is a decrease: of 2.3 per cent, from that of
the previous year. In 1920, the percentage pf juvenile crime to the: total
had dropped to 18.19. Previous .to
1919":for. a period of 14 years, it had
beeii gradually rising."

Burnham Sees Good Results From Imperial Press Meeting
London.���Lord Burnham, proprietor
of the Daily Telegraph, speaking at
the production of a film illustrating
the  meetings of the Imperial  Press
Conference, of which  he  was  chairman, held in Canada some time ago,
said  there was no doubt that, as a
direct result of the conference and the
intimate   contact   it   brought Tleading
British journalists Into with Canadian
conditions  from  Halifax to  Victoria,
the great daily newspapers of London
and the province had largely increased  their  intelligence  department  re
garding Canada and    were    carrying
more Canadian news than ever before.
Lord Burnham went on to refer to
the corresponding value that was being obtained by Canadian daily newspapers through the arrangement entered into between Reuter's and Canadian Press Limited, whereby a valuable   supplementary   cable service of
British news was going   direct   from
London   into   their offices.     Not the
least important part of this new departure was the access that the Canadian Press thus got to the news of
the British Press Association, J,he co-
operative~_organs   of British   newspapers covering news of the British
Isles in much the same way as the
Canadian Press covers the news of the
Heavy Fine For
Liquor Manufacture
London.���Three important developments emerged from the confusion
Into which the resignation of-^M.
Briand, the French premier, threw the
Cannes negotiations. These were,
first, that a ministry, headed by Raymond Poincare will take the place of
the Briand" administration; second,
that the Genoa economic conference
appears to have been saved out of
wreckage; and, third, that the reparations committee, acting under the discretion it possesses by, virtue of the
Versailles Treaty, had granted Germany a moratorium until the allies
arrive at a new decision wlthregard
to her condition.
Germany/instead of- paying the
500,000,000 gold marks due next Sunday, is to pay every ten days ap- ���
proximately 31,000,000 gold marks
which latter amount is considered as
representing 26 per cent, of her
exports. "*
Whether   the   Anglo-French   pact .-
arranged between M. Briand and Mr.
Lloyd George can- be saved, is considered to depend upon a conference
between  Mr.   Lloyd  George  and  M.
Poincare.     The   latter   always   has
been   solid   for the Versailles Treaty,
and   inasmuch   as France Is known
to desire a pact to replace   the   tripartite   convention,     including     the
United    States    which was  contemplated in the original peace negotiations, M. Poincare, like M. Briand, will
have to count with the extreme nationalist " views.      Doubts  are  entertained here as to whether the nationalists will accept the stipulations Mr.
Lloyd George, imposes  as necessary
preliminaries to a conclusion of the
For these reasons' it is considered
quite possible prolonged and difficult
negotiations might ensue before
agreement is reached.

Forecast of Policy at Opening Session
of Manitoba Legislature
Winnipeg.���Investigation of opera-
lion of the Provincial Government service by a select committee of the
legislature with the object of bringing
about all possible economies with due
regard to efficiency, was forecasted by
Sir James Aikins, lieutenant-governor
of Manitoba, in opening tho second
session of the sixteenth Manitoba
Legislature. A feature of the opening was that the general public was
invited to attend the ceremonies
through advertisements in local
newspapers instead of the usual custom of by invitation only.
In delivering his speech from the
throne, Sir James referred to the
financial position of the agricultural
industry. His address carried the
information that provision would be
ma.de to assist the farmers with
necessary loans. It was also stated
that a bill would be brought before
the House to permit municipalities of
Manitoba to accept taxes during 1922
without imposing penalties.
The speech from the throne also
forecasts another move by the legislature this year to obtain control of
the natural resources of the province
and reductions In freight rates.
During the present year, a-soil survey-will be "carried on under-the" direction of the Government while the
legislature will be.41.sked to deal with

L. Coles' bookstore aud got away
with cash and goods to the value
of approximately $150. Entry was
made by the back door, Ransacking every available drawer in the
hope of finding cash, the robbers
succeeded in unearthing 825 iD
bills (the property of Miss Jean
Coles) and also took the loose
change found iu tbe till. The
complete stock of fountain pens
and safety razors were also added
to the loot.
A sequel to the robbery is that a
man walked into the store on Sat-
urdtv-' morning and 'unfolded two
sweater coats, which .contained
the majority of the stolen goods,
Tn one of the pockets of the sweaters, was an "Old Chum" tobacco
sack containing all the loose change
that had been' rifled from the till.
His story was, that? he noticed the
sweaters peeping out from underneath the platform at the depot,
and upon examination, finding the
safety razors and fountain pens,
and having heard of the robbery,
he at once felt it bis duty to return the goods.
Two men were arrested in connection with the ease, were brought
before Magistrate Ellis, and were
remanded for eight days, pending
further investigation.        . '
Providence Mining Co.
The Providence Mining Company lias
sent out the following circulars to their
Chicago, 111., Jan 5, 1922.
Dear Sir:
This is to advise you that notice
has been served on the President and
Managing Director of the Providence
Mining Co., L,td., N.P.L., by the holders
and owners of the bond issue heretofore
made by the Company to secure its
bonds, in the sum of $50,000.00, for^the
payment of said bonds.
A demand has been made by the
bondholders for the payment of the principal and interest now due upon the bond
issue, aud the Company has been notified that in the event of its failure to
meet its obligations in this behalf that
foreclosure proceedings will be instituted
under the terms of the Trust Deed on
the mining property securing this bond
There is now due and owing to
the bondholders upon their bonds ��50,-
000.00 principal with accrued interest
auiounliug to ��24,723.82. There are outstanding the Company's notes for ��5,-
659.20. There is clue for material, labor,
etc., fi4.641.46, making a total of fSs,-
I atu calling your attention to
these matters, and laying the facts
before you, so that you may, if you so
desire, indicate whether or not you are
willing or desirous to take any steps towards the raising of a fund sufficient to
pay these obligations aud prevent foreclosure.
Of course this demand and notice
of the bondholders  mean that  if this
account   is   not   raised   that immediate
proceedings   will    be   coin-
ately 67 cents per share for the 30,100
shares issued, and if there is any value in
the mine it would be the means of saving
it for all of the stockholders. It is only
a comparatively small amount and may
prove a very valuable investment.
The stockholders will remember
how earnestly I tried lo have them subscribe their pro rata share of the debenture bonds when they were issued. I
again nrge.you.'to put up your pro rata
share of this $20,000 assessment that in
the event the mine proves profitable it
may be enjoyed by all the stockholders
I have talked with some ofthe
bondholders and they agree to the above
proposition. In case this series of letters
is successful I will use my best efforts to
have other bondholders agree to this. I
am sending an identical letter-to all of
the stockholders of record.
Hoping to hear from you al an
early date, I am -
Very respectfully,
Mark F. Madden,
Managing Director.
Dear Sir:
Ltd., N.P.L.
Committee of
Very; respectfully,
MlCHAE*. S. Maddrx,
Chicago, 111., Jan. 7, 1922.
Providence Miuing Co.,
has been notified by a
the holders of the debenture bonds that unless, payment is made
of same they will start foreclosure proceeding, notice of which has been mailed
to all of the stockholder by the Secre-
On January 1, 1922, there was
due the principal sum of $50,000,00 on
the bonds, with accrued interest amounting to #24,723.82. In addition to the
bond issue the Company owes on ��� notes
outstanding, past due $5,659.20, and accounts for supplies, labor, power, etc.
$4,641.46, making a total of $85,024.48.
I understand the bondholders
have agreed to take care of the above
outstanding accounts iu addition to the
bonds, should they be compelled to bid
the property in.
The mine has been closed down
since Sept.. 7, 1921, as we were operating
at a loss. The causes' for this were:
First, the former Lessees had taken out
ore wherever he could find it without
doing sufficient development work, and
had drifted under the Providence Creek,
apparently for the purpose of developing
the Bull Dog Exaction, adjoining the
Providence on thc South-' which he-
claims he" has staked or located,
, Second, the floods were worse
last spring than- they have been for
twenty years according to reports. This
trouble was added to by the water-coming in from -Providence creek. Third,
from a shortage of cash to operate the
mine to the best advantage, and.otlier
To re-open the mine there stiduld
be at least $20,000 in cash provided for
operating expenses, and to pay off about
$4600 which we owe for material, explosives, powder and labor. If this
amount was raised I would try to get the
bondholders, and holders_ of_the_promis_-
sory. notes, to at least postpone foreclosure.   This would amount to approxim-
