little apart. Something of the native
scealot's flame had caught her own

farther across the table, thc fork in

In Canada
Different Conception of Canada Says
Sir Charles Starmer
"The abounding prosperity one sees
everywhere" is what has most impressed Sir Charles Starmer, Northern Echo, Darlington, Yorks, who declared that as a result of the visit of
the newspapermen from the old/coun-
try Canadian stock would boom in
England. The newspapers in the
past had, hc said, not given enough
publicity to Canada. Thc governments, provincial andd federal, had
done their work well, but they had
not been supported as they should by
the newspapers. Now newspapermen were seeing things with thcir
own eyes, and the effect would bc an
impetus to immigration t.o the Dominion.
Sir Charles, who has paid several
-visits to Canada, spoke of thc marked
changes hc had noticed from the maritime provinces westward. "There is
vcry much greater refinement everywhere," he observed, "and a noticeable improvement in thc streets aud
buildings. Even in fifteen ycars,"
said hc, "thc progress is amazing. I
have just had another look around
this great city of yours which has in
it the makings of a city with a population of a million within the next
25 ycars." Sir Chailes, beforc this
comment, had dwelt upon thc enthusiasm with which the people of Canada undertook things. "To people
from thc Old Country it is rather
terrifying the tremendous projects
you back as if tlicy were quite ordinary, everyday affairs." As an alderman of ycars service in his own city
he indicated he could speak from experience.
Contrasting the profusion of food
he saw everywhere with what he
described as the extremely short supplies in England, Sir Charles Starmer alluded to the severe rationing
during thc period of the war. Cauada, to him, appeared to bc recovering more rapidly from the effects of
the struggle. "You seem to have got
back to absolute peace conditions
here," hc remarked. "We have not
yet reached that ideal stage'." The
people, he said, also seemed to be
morc contented. ��� Winnipeg. Frec_

Of Spitzbergen
Britain Leads in
Richer Than Was Generally Imagined a Decade Ago
Four months of sunlight in the
year, but. the sunless winter in the
mining regions is not so cold as it is
in Canada, thanks to the neighborhood of thc Gulf Stream and the prevalence of the westerly winds, and
there somebody, presses a button,
switches on thc electrical current and
illuminates the mining villages with
electrical Jjght. The work goes on,
and thc coal.fields, says the London
Times Trade Supplement, are still
estimated to hold morc than 200,000^
000 tons of coal, which is interesting
information nowadays, even to the
American citizen, whose coal bin is
such a long way from Spitzbergen.
These, however, arc the beds of thc
steam coal; and those which contain
household coal arc said to bc even
more extensive.
Nor is Spitzbergen without interest
to thc man who runs an automobile,
as well as to thc man who runs a
furnace. Therc arc muddy pools on
thc islands, where gas bubbles up
through the mud, and last ycar an
analysis of thc gas showed that it
contains a large percentage of petroleum. A ncw and hitherto unsuspected source of fuel had probably been
revealed by those bubbles of gas, and
now arrangements arc being pushed
to prospect the region thoroughly
with the likely result of finding a
new oil-bearing region. Spitzbergen
is richer than was generally imagined a decade ago; during thc last few
ycars, iron, copper.Tcad, gypsum, asbestos and other minerals, as well as
promising hints of gold and silver,
havc been discovered, and large beds
of colored marble have been opened.
All of which is interesting to thc
world at largc, and particularly interesting to the British interests,
which have acquired ownership ol
about three-quarters of thc mineral
area. Norwegians, Swedes, Dutch
and Germans arc also busy developing this island wealth, ovcr which, by
the decision of the League of Nations,
waves the sovereign flag of Norway.
United Kingdom Regains Supremacy
, ^ Over States in Ship
Harrison Watson, chief Canadian
Trade Commissioner in the United
Kingdom, in a report to the government, empha'si-zes the success of the
United Kingdom in resuming her former place of supremacy in ship-building hcjd'in pre-war days. He stated
that owing to the uninterrupted increase in the tonnage of merchant
vessels under construction in July, the
United Kingdom has almost reversed
her position pf a year ago in c6"m-
p'arison with the United States. A
ycar ago the tonnage building in thc
United States exceeded that under
construction in thc United Kingdom
by 1,350,000 tons, while thc surplus
at thc present timc in favor -of
the United Kingdom is about 1,470,-
000 tons. "It seems scarcely necessary to state," says Mr. Watson, in
hi3 report, "that thc extraordinary
increase in American ship construction which took place "during the war
was due to unique circumstances
which have now largely passed

Study of Sugar Production Introduced Into School Course
Boys', of the   sixth,    seventh    and
^ '
eighth grades of the public schools
ori the Island of -Hawaii are contract
planters and are,.raising sugar cane
in connection witlr. the industrial
work being done by' them in the
regular public school course.
Study of sugar production has been
introduced this year into the school
course. Each boy electing to take
this course signs a contract with a
plantation" for tlie cultivation oi a
tenth of an acre of cane. In connection with the practical work the students study tbe processes of production from the planting of the cane to
the marketing of the sugar and its
by-products. ��� ..
The Hanokaa School, for example,
started this work with 20 pupil contractors on two acres of school land.
Honomu school has 19 boys who
have rented land from thc plantation.
Thc returns from this work accrue
to thc pupil. Hc pays rent for thc
land and secures customary advances
for fertilizer, planting and other charges, on which hc pays interest at the
rate of seven percent.

Stand-Up For the Law
Recent 'events in Canada, both east
and west, point to the necessity of
great care being exercised,; not so
much1 uy the authorities, perhaps,>as
by lhe people in general; to safeguard
one of the Dominion's finest traditions and at the same time protect the
liberties of the citizen*.
Canada has long been recognized
throughout the world, and.-especially
in the great republic to the south, as
a country where law was respected
and obeyed, where even-handed justice was administered to high and
low, rich and poor alike, and where
sooner or later the long1 arm-of the
law would get thc guilty. In the
United Statcs, where so many murderers escape just- punishment vfdr
thcir crimes, where the law's delays
are almost interminable', and where,
as a result of a lack of public confidence iu thp, machinery of justice,
lynchings are not infrequent, the reputation borne by Cauada was. an invaluable asset, lt is an asset Canada
cannot afford to lose, nor allow to be
A few weeks ago, however, a
group of men in southern Saskatchewan took the law into thcir own
hands and- drove a labor agitator out
of the country, threatening' him with
lar and feathers if he returned. On
August 16, at Thorold, Out., a mob
stormed the town jail and finally set
lire to it in an effort to take a prisoner from the officers of the law in
order that lliey might execute him
themselves, .although he had not yet
been found guilty of the crime
of which hc was accused. Fortunately, common sense and an appeal to
British fair play was effective in restraining the passions of the mob
beforc it took the irretrievable step.
People, however, must be on thcir
guard against "such exhibitions and
acts, "if Canada is not to suffer in
the eyes of-thc world, and the rights'

To Make a Pound of Honey
It is Clear That the  'Busy  Bee' is
Well Named
Thc Manchester Guardian quotes
experts as saying that this is to be
a good season for honey, and it adds
that many people will, welcome: the
news, though few realize the enormous effort a single pound of honey
necessitates on thc part of the bees.
"In a pound jar," The Guardian explains, "there is the concentrated essence of over. 60,000 flowers. . It is
calculated .tliat to make'a pound of
clover honey thc bees must take nectar from* 62,000 blooms and make 2,-
750,000 visits in the process. Often
thc journey from the liivc to thc
flowers and back runs lo two miles,
so that thc making of a pound of
honey entails journeys aggregating
b.vcr 5,000,000 miles. When it is remembered that a single colony oi
bees will produce "from sixty. to
eighty pounds of honey in a'S"eason
it is clear that.the 'busy bee" is-well
named.'' .,���,:��������� ':���   -

Trees of Benefit in Preventing Evaporation in the Summer
The tree plaining car sent to the
prairie provinces by the Canadian
Forests Association has been stopped
for inspection at many of the leading
towns and cities. Mr. Archibald Mitchell, who is in charge of the exhibits
in. the car is advocating shelter belts
as a protection against soil drifting
arid other wind damage. In his opinion ten percent of the country should'
be under trees to make it fit for habitation.      ��� 	
Questioned" as to the method of
planting' Mr. Mitchell said:  .    ,'
"Strips of wood across each quarter
section, running north' and south,
would go a long way toward solving
many of lhc dry farm problems of the
west. Even if the growing of grasses
becomes universal, as is proposed, the
trees would be of the greatest benefit
in retaining the snow in the winter
and preventing evaporation in the
summer, thereby storing a greater
supply of moisture for thc-.growth of
the grass."   ->- -'
Mr. Mitchell maintains that the
planting of trees is not a difficult ,job
as on& man and one team can plant
1,000 trees in a day, that it takes 1,800
trees to cover ��i acre at 4x6, which
is work for two men for one day.
"Two acres iri two days wouldn't
take'much lime from the wheat planting season," he remarked. "Usually
the farmer neglects planting trees
because hc thinks hc cannot spare
the time, but the two days taken out
of the middle of the wheat seeding
period would not bc lost, but would
simply bc transferred to thc end-and
thc"small amount of damage incurred
by the .change, through a pos'sible
frost is not compared with the advantage "to be derived in later ycars
from the trees'. "������ Possibly in two or
three years the farmer may be thankful that he spent two days to plant
them as it is possible thc only crop
he will have will bc that behind the
shelter belt."    ..."-���'���'

There can scarcely be ,any doubt
but what the sin here meant is that
which we studied last Sunday, namely
David's soul during this time. It
and 12). About a year had elapsed
from the time oL David's sin to his
repentance. The Thirty-second Psalm
graphically pictures the state of
David's soul during thi s time. It
was a ycar of great soul-anguish; day
and night he-was lashed by a guilt}
conscience. In this psalm we sec the
path by which a guilty soul may return vto God.
I. David's Cry for Pardon ((vv. 1, 2).
It is well to note his conception oi
God.   He saw hiin as,a God of mercy
and loving kindness. '        v
1. "Have Mercy" (v. 1). Hc knew
that justice would forever separate
him from God. Because he saw the
mercy and loving kindness of God he
did not sink down under this weight
of gloom and despair. Because Judas Iscariot did not see God as a God
of mercy he went out and hanged
himself. .   /
2. "Blot out my transgressions" (v.
1). Hc was fully conscious how many
had been his acts of rebellion against
3. Wash me from my inquiry" (v.
2). He knew that it was not enough
to have God blot out his sin, for his
very person was defiled. . He knew
that in order to bc clean he must be
washed thoroughly, and that by God
himself. y    '���
4. "Cleanse me from my sin" (v. 2).
He was not clear that washing would
make clean, so hc pleads with
God, to make him clean by whatever
process is needed. He was even willing for fire.ito be applied, just so
he could be 'clean.
II. David's Confession (vv. 3-5).
1. "I acknowledge' my transgressions" (v. 3). He now makes a clean
breast of them���he would hold back
nothing. There 4s no way to peace
with God but by a full confession of
sin. No half-hearted dealing with siu
will avail. ,
2. "Against Thee^have I done this
evil" (v. 4). All sin is vitally and
really against God; All our wrongdoing with,ovur fellows is against God,
for such deeds violate His laws. To
heighten all this guilt he remembers,-
that it was done in God's sight, thus
showing disrespect and contempt for
him. ��.-
3. "Behold, I was shapen in inquity"
(v. 5). Hc confesses not only to
these acts of.sin, but lhat he is by
very nature a sinner. ...
III. David's Cry for Deliverance (vv'.'
v 6-9).-, .-;���.;"    '
1. "Make me..to know" wisdom" (v.
6). He, asked God that instead of
heart, wickedness he might be taught
by God himself in his inmost nature.
2. "Purge me with hyssop" (v. 7.
David seems to.sec that in order to
be.cleansed there is need of applying
atoning blood. - His prayer soars aloft
on the wings of faith to the supreme
sin offering, Christ! - .
3. Restoration ((vv. 8, 9).    He not
only wants-pardon, biit-restoration- to
the divine'favor iri Jesus: Christ..-
IV; "David's Cry For Purity.of Heart
. vv.'; 10-12), -'.'.'" ....
.He realized that if his life was to
be different, Gbd must dispose his
heart toward' the right, so he cried
for ..the holy spirit to. not be taken

Difficulties of the
Obscure Addresses  Often Tax  The
Ingenuity of Officials
One; of thc problems faced by the
postmaster, and, morc often than not,
solved by the postmaster, 'is the obscure address. Recently two .letters
were received at the Winnipeg^ post
office���letters which, be it remarked,
have since reached their destination
���that for a'time-taxed the ingenuity
of the officials. ""
The first was addressed to a party
at the "Scpior Hotel, Winnipeg, Canada." To lookat this address is to
be mystified; but to say"it over aloud
is to discover at once that the/writer
meant "C.P.R. Hotel."
Thc second was a littic-more puzzling.   It was addressed as follows:
Sun Rises 4:51 sets. 20:18.
Moon Rises 17:S4,osets 2:1.
Winnipeg,. Man., Canada.
��� The post' office address ejepcrts,
however, ultimately got to the bottom of this crytogram. Thcy remembered that the Morning Free Press
has for some time made a practice
of placing at the top of the front page
the day's meteorological record. The
envelope was therefore7marked "Try
Free Press." Upon reaching its destination it was found to contain the
payment for a years subscription to
thc Free Press, from a foreign-born
Canadian citizen in British Columbia.

The Rambler mill in tho Slocan
was opened np last week with a
force of man composed of members
of the International, Mine, Mill
and Smelter Workers Union. The
mill has been closed for several
months owing to the strike.
The Kaslo Kootenaian says:
"For the past two weeks Fahey
Bros., leasers on the Whitewater,
have been stopiug ore from a vein,
5 to 8 feet in width. The ore is
fine galena. The ore is in the No.
3 tunnel, and about two tons a day
are being taken out."
Construction commenced last
week on the 50-ton flotation for
the Ottawa mine.near Slocan City.
L. H. Biggar and A. L. McPhee
have this mine under lease and
bond from the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., of Canada.
The mill will be erected a half mile
down the hill from the mine, and
was designed by Mr. Biggar, a
flotation expert, who recently became associated with tbe property,
acquiring Pat McGuire's interest.
It is the intention of the lessees to
have the building ready before the
snow flies, and that the heavy
machinery will be brought in soon
after the first heavy fall of snow.

One of the worst accidents that
Phoenix has had in many a day
occurred on Wednesday morning
when the skating that is being
torn down, fell over with fatal
results. In the fall of timber Jack
Mattock, aged about 8 years, who
was playing around the rink, waB
instantly killed; W. C. Mitchell
had a thigh fractured and was
taken to the Grand Forks hospital
by Dr. Burnett of Greenwood; Mr.
Patterson was slightly injured on
the shoulder, and a team of horses
owned by W. Kier, came to a
sudden end.   . -   " -
." The rink building was:sold some
time ago, the proceeds of. which
were.to go to building a monument
for those who served iu the Great
War. The roofing .was. removed
and Messrs. ; Mitchell, Middleton
and Patterson, of Kelowna, were
getting the structure iir shape bo
that it could be pulled over, but
before this was accomplished the
great crash came. .

training teacher, in. the Kelowna
school had spent the .great, part of
his vacation buying lumber in the
