The tenders for the C. P,-R.

Ottawa on June 24th. There
seems to be much speculation as
to who will be the fortunate or
unfortunate individual, as getting
up every morning at 4 o'clock,
rain or shine, cold or blustery, is
no joke. -
Now that the schools are closed
this is the period when the boys
in the town and country are busy
acquiring more than a usual
amount of knowledge learned
outside of school. Characters
are being largely developed in
the boys spare time, and it is important that the recreations and
advantages should surround him
with an environment making for
higher citizenship. Boys, like
men, must have their clubs.
There is no finer boy club system
iu the world than the Scouts.
The organization puts a boy on
his honor. The judges of honor
arellie boys themselves. Everywhere throughout Canada, and
over the whole continent, these
boys' clubs, surrounded by clean,
constructive enyironment, have
been a great influence against
juvenile delinquency. Some citizens, looking for something to
do along public service lines, yet
inactive because they do not hear
a call, might turn ia and help
spread the boy organization
movement. Work among the
boys is rejuvenating, and better
still, it is helpful in turning out
law-abiding, industrious citizens.

^Mining News   *v",
a The Providence mine,' Greenwood, shipped a car of ore to'the
smelter at Tadanac this.. week.
There are 28 men employed at'this
mine and regular shipments will be
made from now on.
The following is a list of the
ore received at the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co.'s smelter,
at Tadanac. for the week ending
June 14: Florence mine, Princess
Creek, 93 tons. Knob Hill, Republic, 162 tons. Company mines,
7540 tons.
Bert Powell has bought ont his
partners interests, the^ Condit
brothers, in the Horn Silver mine
in the Lower Similkameen valley.
It is understood that it is Mr.
Powell's intention to try and
secure capital to install a mill and
treat the ore on the ground instead
of shipping direct to the .smeller .as
formerly. _    \
British Columbia's gold output,
is expected to reach a total value
of m. 500,000 in 1921, an Increase
of $1,000,000 over the 1920 output,
according to estimates compiled
in Vancouver.
" The Rossland ' mines, which
yielded $600,000 in 1920 are expected to produce 81,500,000. this
year mining-men 'estimated and
the Surf Inlet mine on Princess Royal -island, approximately
$1,000,000. The Premier mine on
Salmon river will be operated at
full capacity soon, according to a
recent announcement. Other im-
portant mines are expected to operate at full capacity this year. -

Canada's Huge Wheat Area
Prairie Provinces   Have  More  Than
Ninety Per Cent, pf the" Wheat
Acreage.
Thc total area sown to wheat this
season in the Dominion of Canada is
estimated at 18,654,100 acres, an increase of half'a million acres over the
1920 area, constituting a new record
for this grain. Seven hundred and
nine thousand one hundred acres of
this is seeded to fall wheat, leaving
17,945,000 to be sown this spring.
The prairie provincesf have more
than ninety per cent, of the Dominion's wheat acreage, with 17,418,900
acres.. This shows an increase of
577,000 acres over" the previous year.
Man s Greatest Asset
The universal membership enrolment campaign recently conducted" by
tho Red Cross Society throughout Canada had for its object the arousing
of the people to the vital need oT greater personal interest in the matter of
health. It was not a campaign lo raise money, but a Dominion-wide and
well organized effort to secure an active and intelligent public interest in
measures for. the prevention oi disease, it being realized that an .ounce of
prevention is worth many pounds of cure. The average man, woman and
child gives little heed to their physical well-being until thcy arc afflicted
with some ailment, and then there is a hurry-up call for a doctor.
That there is need for a great awakening on the part of the public in
regard to matters of personal hygiene and public health-was demonstrated
by thc enforced medical examination of men for military services during the
war years, but, startling as were the disclosures from those examinations,
even more staggering are some recent figures and opinion contained in an
article iu The Journal of Health aud Sanitation, written_by Dr. J, II. Kellogg, superintendent,of the famous Battle Creek Sanitarium.
Races of men have sometimes died out and utterly disappeared and Dr.
Kellogg is of the opinion that this may happen to thc whole human family
if wc continue to live under what he considers present unnatural conditions.
Man, says Dr. Kellogg, is a very old-fashioned animal trying to live in a
new-fangled way, iu a manner that no animal ever before adventured, and
so unnatural and so ill-adapted to liU constitution and his requirements as
to render li is ultimate undoing inevitable. Man is by nature an open-air-
d.vcllcr. Dm the business "and professional men, incarcerated behind llic
doors of their office":, with their assistants, die years before thcir time, and,
on the average, twenty years sooner than the farmer whose vacation keeps
htm. in the open.
Prcscnt-da'y habits and methods of living are held accountable for the
physical deterioration of the race, and for the prevalence of diseases which
are carrying off people by thc million. According to Dr. Kellogg, thc
United States "loses from its population of 106,000,000 by death 1,500,000
people every year, while 3,000,000 people are sick all the time. In other
words, one-fifth of the population arc inefficient or lost. He estimates that
an average of seven days are lost from labor by sickness every year.
Tuberculosis is gaining ground, and kills one out of every ten of thc population. Cancer kills one in twenty. Other maladies arc rapidly gaining
ground. In England and Wales the insane are increasing twice as fast as
the sane, and in France ten times as fast. Coupled with these alarming
symptoms, there is the serious fact that the birth rate in nearly all civilized
countries is rapidly declining.
Dr. MacNeil!, superintendent of thc Mental Hospital at Baltlcford,
Sask., matte the statement recently in a "public address* at Regina that at
the present rate of increase of mentally deficient people there would not be
enough mentally efficient people to look after them fifty years hence.
N Iu support of his contention that present habits and methods of living
are responsible for existing conditions, Dr. Kellogg draws attention lo one
of the interesting lessons from thc- war, namely, the notable lowering of
the death rate in several countries. In Denmark the death rate fell 35 per
cent., clue in the opinion of Dr. Hindhcde, the'Danish food controller, to
simpler habits of living, and especially the low-prolein diet and the use
'of coarse bread. In Germany, too, diabetes has practically disappeared
from thc same cause, and gout, formerly very common, is now unknown.
Good health is the greatest asset any person can possess. Wealth is
of little value to a man if he does not possess good health so that he may
enjoy ic. Without health no one can get much pleasure out of life. Lacking health no person can be wholly efficient. Ill-health is waste. Yet the
best medical experts agree that, by taking proper precautions there is little
reason for sickness, and that main- diseases which now number thcir victims
by thc millions could be readily stamped out.
Health studies and health conditions must bc given first place and foremost attention in our public schools. People must be made to understand
that soundness of body is fundamentally essential in business, art, literature,
politics and religion, as well as in warfare, sports and industry. By creating an enthusiasm for health promotion and physical perfection a long step
forward will ,be taken towards, the realization of that better state for all
people towards which the world is blindly groping. A popular, nationwide Crusade for Good' Health is imperative. . Governments can do much,
but the main essential is an aroused and active interest on the part of every
individual citizen. The promotion bf health is thc only real,- lasting and
basic national policy for any country.

Sims Spent Younger
Days in Toronto
Father Was Superintendent of Toronto and Nipissing Railway.
Rear-Admiral William Sowden
Sims, whose pro-ally speeches in
Great Britain havc resulted in his recall to Washington by the secrctaTy
of thc United States navy, lived in
Toronto with his father and mother
when he was fifteen years of age. His
father, who went from Philadelphia
to Port Hope about 1854 as civil engineer on tlie construction of the railway from that town to-Lindsay, moved with his Canadian wife and two
children ro Toronto in 1873 and became superintendent of the old Toronto and Nipissing Railway which ran
from Toronto up through Beavertori
and Cannington "to Coboconk where
it now ends.
In an old city directory of that
year thc future admiral's father is listed as an official of the railway board-
inig at thc Queen's Hotel, Front
Street.

CHILDREN'S HABITS.
Copyright,   1921, by   Rea  Proctor
McGee.
Habits formed in childhood are
very difficult to break. Thc younger
the child, the more quickly a habit is
formed. -
Thcir experience having been so
limited, thcy very quickly become accustomed to almost any new diversion
that may come thcir way. Many
little thingsv that, at the time, seem
trivial, will have a severe cflec-t-in after years.     ���       - ,
One of tlie ."worst habits that a
young child forms is that of thumb
sucking. -Many mothers would rather
havc the baby quiet than dissatisfied
with life in general and raising Cain.
But thc pacifying of the youngster by
this method will cause a great deal
of difficulty.
When a child sucks its thumb it
pushes the roof of tl^c mouth upward
so that it makes a/very high arch; and
as thc roof of the mouth is -thc floor
of the nose, the nasal space is reduced and thc" septum of thc nose-is
pushed over cither to life right or to
the left���usually to thc left.
Tlie upper "teeth in front, along"
with thc bone in which thcy are imbedded, are pushed forward and upward, and thc lower front teeth and
the surrounding bone are pushed inward and downward.
Medicated dentifrices should not bc
used by children. __ What thcy need
is just thorough scrubbing of the
teeth twice each da}' with clean water
and a "mild, pleasant tooth paste or
powder. -

WOULD NOT BE WITHOUT
BABY'S_0WN TABLETS,
Mrs. W. Becsley, Mille Roche, Ont.,
writes "I have used Baby's Own
Tablets for the past eight months
arid "would not~~be_without them. I
used them for indigestion and teething and my baby is cutting his teeth,
without any trouble whatever. I can
highly recommend the Tablets to
other mothers." -What Mrs. Becsley
says thousand of other mothers
.say. Thc Tablets arc a mild but
thorough laxative which regulate* thc
bowels and sweeten _ the stomach,
tints driving out constipation arid indigestion and making teething easy.
They arc sold by medicine dealers or
by" mail at 25 cents a box from Thc

Think   Davis   Structure   Will   Stand
Trans-Pacific Passage
'A Japanese firm proposes to make
another attempt to raft timber,from
British Columbia to Japan."- Thcy believe that thc Davis raft structure, of
which the outside rows bf logs are
laced with cable, can be made to stand
thc trans-Pacific passage. The first
raft will leave this coast about
August. It will have' a sitp>cr-struc-
ture of piled logs, strongly laced.
Hitherto rafted logs have not withstood long sea journeys, except one
which. was taken from San Francisco to China about- twenty years
ago. Favored by calm seas the raft
was safely landed. The Chinese,
however, unused to 'big logs, took ten
years to cut up this boom, itsing
long, hand rip saws to make the
boards. ,   ���-
SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
LESSON FOR JUNE 26.   .-
REVIEW:   THE   SOCIAL   TASK
OF THE CHURCH.
Revelation 21;1-14 is the passage of
Scripture selected for devotional
reading. Instead of, attempting<to
review the lessons of the quarter it
would bc of great interest and profit
to enter into a detailed .study of this
Scripture. The following outline
may be helpful/ I. The New Heaven
and the New Earth, (vv. 1, 2);,IL The
New People (vv. 3-8); III. The New
Jerusalem (vv. 9-14). ""
Another way would be to assign,
the Golden Texts to different members of the class'asking them to give
the part of the particular lesson which
illustrates the teachings of the text.
Still another way would- bcto summarize the different Scripture passages, giving the leading " lessons, of
each. The following is given by way
of suggeslion: ^"^
I. The believer's supreme obligation
is to present himself as a living sacrifice to God. The grand reason for
so doing is that he has received the
mercies 6f:God. Thc one so yielded
will lovc his fellow .believer sincerely.
II. The believer's body is God's
property���-the temple of the, Holy
Ghost; therefore we arc under solemn
obligation to use it for'His glory.
III. Since God the Father and Jesus
Christ work^it is incumbent.upon.all
to work, ami the man,,who will not
work should'not-eat.   :���'������">��� V : --    .
IV. God hates the grecd-that moves
men to dishonest, methods in ofder
to get rich. His judgment shall fall
upon such.-
V. True education will lead one to
Christ. The one only book which
tells about Him is the Biblc^ No one
can call himself educated who is ignorant of the Bible. s-
VI. God rested when His work of
creation was done. On this basis He
has established thc law of labor and
rest." The obligation to cease from
labor is that one may remember"God.
VII. The church is an organism as
the human body. In order that there
may be real-helpful co-operation there
must bc membership in that body.
~ VIII. Testis-shoukl.bc welcomedias"
.1 guest into every home.. He-is an"'
example, of an ...obedient son in the
home.       - ������     ' ���
IX. The most important question is
not "Who is my neighbor?" but "To
whom can I- be a neighbor,?" Being
a neighbor is seeing those about who
nccd help and rendering such help in
loving sympathy. 7-.    ,
X. The Christian is a citizen as well
as a church member. Intelligent
Christians will show proper' loyalty
to the state. -���
"XL When Christ shall reign as
King there shall be pease all over the
world between animals and men. Thc
supreme business of thc believer in
this dispensation is to'preach the gospel to all thc world as a witness.
XII. Jesus came and preached the
gospel to the poor, but shall come
again to judge the world and reign as
King.
Since thc whole of' man's duty is'}'
summed up by Christ in duty to God
and duty to.man (Matt. 22:36-40), it
would be profitable to go through
the, quarter's lesson and "set down thc
teachings under
I. Duties to God; IT..Duties to.

;'--. Dr. Massimo Armando Leuret, aged
36, a Swiss physician, has arrived in
Milan "after walking 35,000 miles in
both old and new worlds^ He asserts that his tour took him around
the globe commencing on January A,
1914 and cost him $40,000.     ~'"-j
Hc says he left Switzerland going
north to Germany, Poland and Russia. He was in thc last named
country when thc war began and
continued the journey across Russia
to Siberia. -He .then vtsited_ China
and Japan_and later crossed the Pacific to America. 'He claims to have
traversed both North and South America on foot. His trip from the
Pacific Coast to New York was made
alternately in Canada and thc United
States. ---
,, When liegot to Switzerland, he decided that he had not yet seen Italy

Successful Work Done by Dominion

Teaching ten thousand Ukrainian
farmers the "why and how" of the
poultry industry, improving the conditions in the poultry industry generally, increasing thc size of the flocks,
replacing scrub stock with better
bred stock, and lastly, but not least,
organizing some system, of co-operative marketing of the eggs after they
havc been produced. This is thc
work that was started las't vMarcli'by
the Alberta representatives of the
poultry division of. thc Dominion livestock branch in the Ukrainian settlements of Alberta, and judging from
thc Jesuits that havc been obtained
already, thc ten thousand farms, situ-
atcd���in the poorest and roughest sections of Alberta, will eventually bc

cab driver.
The American undertook to see
Rome in ajday* and used the cab
driver as a guide. Thc American
was driven to all tlie great Roman
monuments and took-great interest in
the buildings, always asking how. long
each took to build.
At "St. Peter's the cab driver confessed that it took 50 years to'com-
plctc that structure. Thc American
did not think that that���was such a
great feat, for he -was certain that
such- a -buildingi .could be built in
America in two years. . Other large
churches, like St; John Lateran, the
visitor sartf, could bc built in a year
or even six months. ''v
Finally, they were passing the new
massive buildings- occupying several
city blocks containing the Italian
law courts. , ' "\
"What's that?" inquired'thc Ameri-
can.
"I don't know," retorted the driver.
"It wasn't there last night."

The -Field Crops Branch of the

farmers either disc or cultivate about'
two weeks before starting to plough.
In this way not only are the^weeds
certain to be destroyed, but tlie soil is

Conditions
Unbearable in Zurich
University Students  Obliged  to  do
Work for Private Households.
Not only do Zurich University professors find difficulty in making hoth
ends meet, but university"xstudents are
oblige'd to do charwomen's work for
private���households,��� help-in -restaurants or playjn bands in cafes. Some
of them cannot afford to pay for lodging and consequently sleep .in furniture vans or disused railway trucks.
Some have to exist on $14 a month or
less. It nowTippcars that the women
who look after the public lavatories
in Zurich arc paid at the same rate as
the university professors. The lavatory attendants have this advantage
over thc professors that they receive
tips in addition. In fact, the struggle
for existence among the professional
classes is becoming almost unbearable

Provincial Veterinarian Says Condition of Stock Improving.
Dr. M. _ [P. McCIellan, provincial

that one of the best ways of judging

test, their condition is incomparably
better than a year ago. At the present time the general health of animals
was never better." "The steadily increasing demand," says Dr. McCIellan, "for blackleg filtrate and vaccine,
which is handled by the livestock
branch for the convenience of veterinarians and stockmen, amply testifies
to the intelligent attitude adopted by
the stockmen of the province toward
preventive animal medicine."

IS LIFE WORTH LIVING?
When you-hear this question asked by a man or woman,
with lips curved downward and voice attuned to discontent, you may set that person down as supremely selfish.
He or she asks practically,, "Is life worth living for me?"
Worth living? .Of course it is, so long as there is one
single other soul in the. world, If the querist were the
last of his race, then indeed the answer might well be
"no;" but while there is another human being for whom
we can do a favor, or whose interests we may -advance,
life is indeed worth living.
Friend, when you find yoorself depressed and inclined to
think that life holds nothing for you, look around you (not
very>far away), and do the very first favor for another
that comes to your hand. It may be a very small one, but
do it; and keep on, day by day, hour by hour and minute
by minute, working for others, for truly' this along makes
life worth livinor.

There is no good reason why a man should needlessly
put his own wife to the trouble of wiping up the tracks,
when he takes great pains to clean his feet before crossing

little carelessness, when callers are assured, with the most
gracious of smiles, "that it isn't ofJ the slightest conse-
sequence."

of articles too numerous
