Praises British Columbia
At the mining convention held
in Seattle, Wash., lasfe week,
Emmet D. Boyle, governor of the
State of Nevada, was ih attendance
and in the course of an address he
bid welcome to the Canadians, as
follows: "And I love British Columbia,"' he said. "Often my
mind turns back-to boyhood days
in"the Kootenays. For I was 19
years old when I left my old home
to go north feo British Columbia to
make good."
This was greeted with much applause from the section in the hall
occupied by British Columbia delegates.
"And when I struck your
country," went on the governor,
"I was broke. So I went to a
section foreman on the C.P.R and
got work; I made a firBt-class
section hand for'six months���fche
happiest days of my life."
At this point,the whole house
applauded fehe speaker. Ife tickled
all the mining men. For it is
stated that the biggest mining men
who attended the convention . were
men who came up from the hard
pan���men who have had a speaking acquaintance with the pick and
shovel at some time in their career.

Early Spanish adventurers sailed
their ships up the St. Lawrence,
then followed the Ottawa far north
to Lake Titniskaming.     .
Silver was found there, and they
sunk a shaft. Bub the wealth they
sought was not obtained.
'���They sailed away,   not knowing
how close they came to a treasure.
Tt lay open to sun and rain, with
a thin covering of moss and lichen,
only a few miles from where their
search was abandoned. Centuries
passed before it was discovered on
the present sight of Cobalt.
Meanwhile the rocky hills were
stripped of timber. The spiked
heels of the lumbermen scorred the
almost pure silver with which deep,
wide cracks in the rock were plugged. ���   -. -������--���".
The laborer who found it at last
once had worked in a Cobalt mine.
.'When, he saw a patch of pink on-a
hillside he recognized it as cobalt
bloom, and he investigated. ��� - ��� .   .
He knew nothing of silver. But
what he.did know led him directly
to it. His slender, knowledge of
cobalt -was all, that distinguished,
him from the others, whoshad passed that spot.- , ,.--"-'

Gone Far. Enough
Mrs. Hicks is so  painfully  neat
that she makes  life  miserable for
her family.    One of her rules is
that all  members of   her   family
must remove   their   shoes   before
entering   the   house.    "Bill"   she
remonstrated with   her   husband,
"I found a grease spot  on  one of
the   dining   room   chairs,   and  I
think it came of those  pants you
wear in the shop."    A brief silence
followed, then a volcanic eruption.
"Well,  Mirandy, for the last 15
years I have taken  off my shoes
every time I came into the house,
but I'll be hanged if I'll go further."
It Isn't Your Town: It's You
If you want to live iu the kind of a town
Like the kiud of a town you like.
Vou needn't slip  your clothes in a grip
And start ou a long, long hike,
You'll only find what you left behind,
For there's nothing that's realiy new;
It's a knock at yourself when  you leave
your town���
It isn't your town���it's you.
Real towns are not made by men afraid
Lest someone get ahead; ,.
When every one works and nobody shirks
You can raise a town from the dead.
And if when you  make your persoual
Your neighbor can make one, too,
Your town, will be what yc>ii want to see���
It isn't your town���it's you.
