there is even less reason why thc post capable of 130 miles an hour with a

miles, and armaments of machine
guns and bombs t^hat madc them so

"So greatly had the Britisii airplane
service developed," sai(L-Lt.-Col. Barker, "that if the war had lasted a.
few months longer the people of Berlin would havc had a taste of thc same
aerial bombing warfare thcy had so
ruthlessly carried on against British
and French cities. Tlicy knew this,
"and it is altogether probable that this
knowledge was a great influence in
compelling the Germans to ask for thc
armistice that ended thc war."
As a result of the war experience
Lt.-Col. Barker said that an .air convention had been held at Paris, when
rules for air service had been laid
down, and adopted by most European countries, and by Canada. The
United Statcs had not joined this convention, and as a result had no air
rules. If such rules had been in force
he felt certain that the recent disaster at Newark would have been avoided. He also welcomed the news that
Canada was to have a military air
force, which vvould utilize thc services
of the thousands of returned Canadian aviators, and prevent the loss to
thc Dominion of thcir invaluable- experience.
Lt. Col. Barker pointed out especially the value of thc air service in keeping up communications and carrying
mails, and said that tlie recent great
railway strike in England had largely
been defeated by the mobilization of
the Royal-Air-Force.
The trouble in Canada' was that
they, had air'regulations without air
machines, but he hoped'fo see development, along -military, . commercial
and-industrial lines,' if only a supply

'Will Develop Salt Deposits
Company Erecting Large Plant Near
Fusilier, Sask...
Recently Dr. John A. Allan, professor of geology of the University of
Alberta, accompanied by J. O. ��� Williams of Soda Deposits, Ltd., which
has its head office ��t Fusilier, Sask.,
visited the immense deposit of Glauber Salts in .this district to "picpa're a
report forothe public utilities of commission of Alberta, as to thc advisability of opening up these deposits ou
a commercial scale. It is estimated
that the field comprises some 50 acres.
Dr. Allan is not prepared to make
any detailed statements other than
the nature and quality of the deposit
would warrant development. Thc deposit is of particular interest, as it
opens up the possibilities of not only
Glauber salts, but also other soluble
salts, including potash and magnesia
at this or other points. Dr. Alian
expects ��� to be working in western
Saskatchewan and would give any assistance or information possible to
persons reporting the presence of
such minerals.
J. 0. Williams, who has his headquarters in Calgary in thc meantime,
statcs that operations will ..commence
early in May and that they expect
to handle 30 tons a day to start with.

feet by 100 feet at the mine, together
with accommodations for their men,

Somc idea of the progress that the

thc past seven years, may be gleaned
from thc statistics as obtained by the
staff of the Wrigley Directory, Limited. This information shows that r.o
less thau 593 villages and settlements
have been established since 1913. In
that ycar a report on the province
was secured, vwhich showed that a total of 1,272 cities, towns, villages and
settlements had been created, while
today, Alberta can boast of 1,870.'-
house buildings.
The intention at present is to use
a line of heavy motor trucks for thc

Roman   Roads   Used   London

Explaining the why and wherefore

thc English author, said that the River Thames, iii its double character of
highway and obstacle, had madc London.   All the great Roman roads had
used London Bridge for crossing froiii
north' to south.    London Bridge was
in its present position for four, reasons:   It  is   nearly  the' highest  point
where seagoing   boats- caii^   tranship
goods.    If is thc spot.where an outcrop of-gravel on the northern, bank
is   opposite  only a  small  deposit  of.
alluvial liiud on ' tlic   southern    bank.
At Erith,'Gravcscnd and' Tilbury thc
"hard", on one bank is opposite'-vast-
fields of alluvial mud oii the other and
as the river is- broader the difficulties
in thc  way.  of   bridge   construction
were greater.    The bluff- of the city,
though' small, offered in" early times a

Tractors for Road Making-

J. F. Johnston, M.F. for La,st Mountain, who has had several interview:?
with the minister of customs in an
endeavor to get the government to
allow municipalities .to import ti actors for road-making purposes free of
duty and also to allow farmers who
.own tractors to use them -'for road-
making purposes, has been advised
that -the govcrnnicnt-has acceded  to
, his wishes, in "respect tp the latter.. - '.

pany. This concern was incorporated
last year to take over the fishing interests of R. W. Jones on Lesser
Slave Lake. The capital stock has
been increased from $100,000 to $200,-
000, the intention being to prosecute
the northern fisheries on an extensive scale, as well as Lake Athabasca.
A cannery site has been secured on
Lake Athibasca, and some of the new
capital is to be used in getting a plant
ready for operation at as early a date
as-may be found possible. The remoteness of the northern , fishing
grounds and the lack of transportation facilities at the present time, are
reasons for the' company's decision
to establish a cannery, tinned fish being more easily taken to.market under
existing conditions.

Many Fire Losses Due to Employees
Dropping Unextinguished
Matches
Matches are thc immediate cause
of many of our largest fire losses and
probably thc majority of smaller fires
could be traced to thc same source.
More than onc factory in Canada
has gone down in ruins; many employees have been thrown "out of employment, and their families have suffered -want; many employers have
seen'thc result of--.their-lifc of work
cruniblc���all. the' result of carelessness
with matches. . Thc-numb.er of fires in-
business' places shortly after closing
time is remarkable. Investigation has
shown--that- these arc. nearly: always
due'to'.employees dropping unextinguished matches; after-lighting-pipes
and.cigarettes.. Especially is thi's.the
case, during -the. cold-weather,'when
employees, 'regardless. of "no. smoking" rules,' will "light .up".before bul-
what other people think about your
case at other times.
Don't bring in your suit-case to this
room. -Use a toilet "hold-all." Many
men do. You can. Give the other
fellows a chance of some room.
Don't 7-whisk your clothes in this
room if other people are present.
Thcy don't, want to breathe your dust.
Thcy merely consider you arc wanting in good manners. '
Don't get up late and shave, if by
so doing you discommode others. No
one. objects to a mail shaving if lie
docs not interfere unreasonably with
other men who merely want lo wash
thcir face and hands, etc.
Thc instant you have finished your
toilet get out of the room. You have
ntTfurther right there while the other
men require thc room as a lavatory.
They are anxious to see you go as
quickly as you can. Don't stay in this
room and crowd the later risers.
Don't whistle anywhore in a sleeping car. Your alleged music pleases
only you. No one else wants to hear
it. Most men think the whistler a
nuisance.
Don't talk loudly in thc body of the
car when most people have retired'to
sleep. Their only interest in your
conversation is to wish you somewhere else.

pcpsia. Proof df the value of Dr.
Williams Pink Pills in even the most
obstinate cases of stomach trouble is
given by Mrs. S. Morrison, Varney,
Ont., who says:���"I shall always feel
indebted to a friend who advised me
to use Dr. Williams Pink Pills. I had
been-a sufferer for upwards of twelve
years with stomach trouble which resulted in a general weakness of the
whole system. My meals always
caused me great discomfort," and at.
times I--would go hungry rather than
undergo;*the suffering which followed
meals. I was constantly taking
something or other recommended for
thc trouble, but without finding a
cure, and often the trouble kept mc
in bed when ��� I should have been
about doing my housework. '. My
friend, who had had a similar attack
j came to see me and urged mc to try
Dr, Williams Pink Pilis which" had
cured her. I got a. supply at onpe
and began taking them, aiid soon
found relief. By the timc I had used
eight boxes I .was again enjoying the
best of health, and with a good appetite and a stomach restored to normal. Had I know of this medicine
earlier it would have saved mc j cars
of suffering, and I urge any who may
be in a similar condition lo try these
pills at once."

it is possible to so tone up the diges-jand   no   demonstrations    covering   a
Jive organs Uiat a pleasing diet mayiweek at a time   to   show    what    the
horse could do. People began to believe the fairy tales fold by the sales
agents of-tractors and trucks and regarded the horse as doomed and
about to be supplanted by automotive
power.
I have been making somc extended
investigations as lo the true" conditions and thc revelations are really"
surprising. Instead of automotive
power replacing the horse and mule
on the farms of the northwest, the
number of machines is so small as to
be entirely negligible, while the number of work horses shows only a
slight decrease from formers ycars.
The startling part of the disclosure is
in thc marked decrease in young horses: and mules showing that the motor
propaganda has had the evil effect of
reducing the breeding of work animals
to a noticeable and almost dangerous
extent. Farmers arc awakening to
this condition and have already begun
planning to raise, more horses and
mides for farm Work for future needs.
The motor bogey for farm work has
been demonstrated to be a myth.
A few days ago I attended a sale
at a 640 acre farm, which the owner
has .rented and is leaving. He had
been using trucks and tractors. I
thought that hc had a "horseless''
farm and mentioned it to him. . Hc
declared "there is no such thing, as
a horseless farm and never will' he.
I usc a tractor, trucks and automobiles,,but thcy do only a small portion
of thc work.- There will never be a
time when successful farming can be
carried on without horses." At the
sale he sold 19 horses and 19 mules
with which he had been farming. His
trucks and tractors wcrc mere side issues. His work geldings brought $225
to $265 each and his mules from $100
for short j'carlings to $247 for work,
mules.
Tlicrc was a sale of houses at Pullman, Wash., a short time ago, and
the average pricc on 51 head was $445.
Last week al a farm sale in Idaho
county work horses brought $325 to
$415~each7 Buyers from Canada recently shipped.several carloads of unbroken range horses'picked up in Idaho, for which they paid aii "average of
$110 per head. Last year-they could
not,have been" sold, for-$.3Q per head;

he will have the advantage of all
the Granby company's metallurgical re-searches in the treatment
of Hidden Creek ores, as those of
the Hanna property are similar in
every respect to those of Hidden
Creek.
Iu this connection it may be
noted that, while a few years back,
the Granby company stated their
ore reserves on Hidden Creek
would average 1.8 per cent., they
now; claim 2.2 per cent, as the
average, showing that later developments have disclosed ore bodies
of higher copper content than those
known five years ago. These
higher values are said to have been
found in the western zones, con-,
tiguous to the Hanna property
where, it is said, considerable bodies of ore running G per cent, have
been uncovered, indicating that
values increase towards the west
and into the Hanna ground.

of age and was the eldest son of
Mr. and Mrs. Tony Krouten. By
his diligence and kindly disposition he was highly spoken of by
his teacher, and always held a high
place in his class. The burial services were conducted by Rev.
Father Coccola, who spoke of the
deceased as a model boy on account of his diligence, obedience,
thought-fulness. and kindness.
Beautiful floral tributes were contributed by Mr. Masterton and
Classmates; by the teachers and
Pupils of Greenwood Schools; by
Mr. and Mrs. Beattie; by Mrs.
