New Lead Schedule
Following out the policy ontlined
to shippers last September, of making further concessions when marketing and other conditions- would
permit, the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Company of Canada is
issuing a new lead sehedule to
shippers. These concessions include lower deductions from lead,
and lower zinc penalties, together
with an allowance of a larger portion of *he New York exchange to
Ths new schedule follows:
1. A larger proportion of the
exchange.on gold and silver will be
allowed to the shipper, especially
when the exchange is at a low rate.
2. Instead of a deduction of 1��
cents from the London lead quotation, the deduction will be I| cents.
3. There will be a charge of
only 30 cents a unit for sine, instead of 50 cents a unit, as recently.
It is desired that at the coming
Easter Season _the public _should
discontinue, as far as possible, the
use of small cards and envelopes.
The following are the objections to
the use of small cards and envelopes:
1. As a result of the small size
of the cards or envelopes the Post
Office cancellation mark frequently
falls on the address partially obliterating it with the possibility that
the article may be misdelivered or
at least delayed.
2. There is difficulty in the
poet office sortation and handling
of small cards and envelopes and
thia unavoidably causes delay.
3. . There is .also difficulty in
putting small cards or envelopes
through stamp cancelling machines
at larger offices, and this too
causes delay,
4. The small size of .cards or
envelopes makes them apt to fall
out of bundles in which they are
tied, and there is the possibility of
loss as the result of this.
Responsibility for loss, misdelivery or delay as outlined above,
arising from the use of smail cards
or envelopes, rests entirely with
the sender.

The Highway Act
Particular attention is drawn 16
the, Highway Act, Amendment
Act, 1921, which prohibits the use
of heavily laden vehicles on roads
which are at the time not in condition to withstand such traffic.
This applies most particularly to
truck owners to whom it is pointed
out that they are defeating their
own ends by making roads impassable. No gravel roads no matter
how well built, will carry heavy
truck traffic during the spring
thaw or after heavy rains. A penalty is provided for infraction of
this Act, and authority has been
conferred upon the roads engineer
to take summary action, \

Al)ranam Lincoln s Advice
With tho approach of Spring, and a revival oi' business activity fallowing
a winter characterized by much unemployment and the necessity for thc distribution of relief on a largo scale by Governments, municipalities and charitable organizations, thc air is idled ���with rumors of impending strikes and industrial disturbances. Thc coal miners of Canada and lite United Stales
threaten a -walk-out to enforce their demand for a six-hour day and a live-day
work week, while the engineering and other trades in Great Uritain are also
resorting to extreme measures.
ft would naturally havc been thought that, instead of creating conditions
which mean idleness, not only for those going out on strike, but. for countless thousands engaged in other trades which arc dependent upon a plentiful
supply of coal, and instead of striving for less work and employment, the
lessons of the past, year would have taught all men to exert themselves to
create more work in order thai, with the cmploynuu of all and renewed activity, there wotttl be better times and a larger measure of prosperity for all.
.However, it would appear lhat lhe fallacious teaching of paid agitators,
Hint ii reduction in working hours anil days below a reasonable limit must
inevitably provide work for a larger number, still inllucnces many of the
world's workers. The theory I hat the world must have a certain quantity
of any given nriicle. and lhat. if each individual produces a smaller quantity
(if il, a larger nunibci must, be employed to make up the required total, is a
lulse theory. It is possible to so enhance- the cost of an article as to make
it prohibitive, and to so seriously reduce the. demand, that, instead of there
being any increase in employment in such production, there is a damaging
Again, those who preach litis false doctrine lose sight of the fact. that,
mankind oifn . get. along wil bout an amaziugly large number of things if circumstances force tlioiu to do so. The experiences of the war should have
been sufficient to thoroughly convince all people <5f this fact.
Last year the coal miners in Great Britain sought to dictate to ihe whole
nation, and in tying tip the coal mining industry they not. only inflicted enormous losses on themselves, but dealt a blow at Britain's position as a great
coal exporting country from which if lias not yet recovered. Valuable properties were so seriously damaged thai, even yet they have not been restored
to their old-time producing capacity, and fewer men are employed.
Canada's workers would do well to heed ihe advice once given by Abraham Lincoln, himself a worker and a son of the people. Lincoln said:
"Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; it is a positive good
In the world. That some should bo rich shows that, others may become rich,
and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him
*vho is hopeless pull dowu the house of another, but let him build one for him-
slf, thus assuring, by example, that bis own shall be safe from violence
vrheti built."
' The man who gains.a competence in this world, or amasses wealth, does
not do so by working as little as he. possibly can, or by skimping the work he
does. The world's rich men are among its most industrious and hardest
workers. Their aim in life is not to accomplish as little constructive, productive work as possible in the course of a day, but rather to strive for a
maximum of results.
If men who now regard their position as hopeless, and are envious of the
success of their fellows, would but' follow Lincoln's advice and get busy, and
exert themselves, not as little as possible, but to the full extent, of their powers, they could quickly establish themselves and make a worthy place for
themselves in the world. But they will never get anywhere by; simply
criticizing what, oliters do and striving to tear clown what others have built
up.' They should change their tactics, and, instead of endeavoring to do as
little as possible, and skimping that little, try the plan of exerting all their
efforts and endeavoring to achieve a maximum of good work accomplished
during the full period of a reasonable long working clay.

A Tonic Medicine a'Necessity at This
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are an all-
year-round tonic for .the blood and
nerves. But they are especially valuable in the spring when the system
is loaded with impurities as a result
of the indoor life of the winter
months. There is no other season
when the blood is so much in need of
purifying and enriching, and every
close of these pills helps to enrich the
blood! In the spring one feels weak
and tired���Dr. Williams' Pinlc Pills
give strength. In the spring the appetite is often poor���Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills develop the appetite, tone
the stomach and aid..weak digestion.
It is in the spring that poisons in the
blood find an . outlet in disfiguring
pimples, eruptions and boils���Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills cleat" the skin
because they go to the root of the
trouble in the blood. In the spring-
anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion,
neuralgia and many other troubles
are most persistent because of poor,
weak blood, and it is at this time
when all nature takes on new life
that the blood most seriously needs
attention. Some people dose themselves-with purgatives at.this, season,
but, these only further weaken themselves. A. purgative merely gallops
through the. - system, "emptying the
bowels, but.does not.help-the blood.

Cause of Asthma. No one can say
with certainty exactly what causes

Backward Children
The Value of Medical ' Inspection in
Public Schools
Backward children are not always,
perhaps not often, backward because
of either mental deficiency or sloth-
fulness, says the U.S. Public Health
Service. Many of ��� them _are backward solely because of such ordinary
and easily remediable defects as adenoids, near-sightedness, or bad "teeth.
A case in point was recently reported by the oflcial representative of The
Public Health Service in the eighth
sanitary district of Vermont, in which
the service is co-operating in a rural
health work project..    .
Medical inspection of one .of the
graded schools in October, 1919,..show-
e'd'that it had been thought necessary
to instruct in a special room sixteen
pupils who had seemed to be unable
to keep tip with n their respective
classes. Physical examination showed that each of the sixteen had some
serious hampering physical defect
(chiefly enlarged tonsils, adenoids, or
defective hearing or eyesight) which/
rather than any mental handicap, was
the probable cause' of their inability.
Through the co-operation of the
school directors, the facts were
brought to the attention of the parents
or guardians of the children and all
were set right before the end of the
On re-examination of the pupils ihe
next December (1920) it appeared
that all of the sixteen previously backward .children had caught up with
their proper grades and were keeping
up in them with their classmates. A
year later, in December, 1921, some ol
these sixteen children were among
(he mental and physical leaders in
their grades.    -.
Oppose Skyscrapers fjr London
British Architects Disapprove of
Altering Building Regulations
The proposal of the committee on
I7ondon Building Acts to alter building regulations, so as to permit of the
construction of buildings 120 feet high
instead of the present maximum of SO
feet, has been disapproved by tno
Royal Institute of British Architects.
Most, of the architects who spake
on the question declared, that "skyscrapers" in the mediaevally planned
streets would be depressing and demoralizing, while the increase in the
city's population would result in the
swamping of traffic by the necessary
supply services.

The Submarine Evil
Almost Useless Except for. Attacks on
Merchant Shipping
if we are to build submarines, and
even more submarines than before the
war, naval competition will be perpetuated in a new and dangerous
form. Nor can'���-���we regard the restrictions on their use" which have
been accepted at Washington as a
(sufficient safeguard against their' future . misuse. The restrictions are of
importance, and'we do not doubt that
they have been adopted with sincerity,'but such rules have been made before and then broken by nations confronted with imminent defeat. '.Experience has proved that submarines
are almost,useless except for attacks
on merchant shipping, and if we are
really determined to rule out such attacks from among tlie more hideous
possibilities of warfare there is only
one way to do it, and that is to scrap

I. Asa's Reformation (vv. 1-5).
Asa was the-grandson of Rehoboam.
Doth his grandfather and father favored idolatr)*, but in spite of this record of his ancestors, Asa had a will
of his own, and though young when
he came to the throne, inaugurated a
campaign of reform which brought
great good. He not only had the
handicap of the idolatry and immortality fostered by the two former
kings, but he had .to contend against
the influence of his mother who had
encouraged immoral worship, (I.
Kings 15:13). In order to carry out
his reformatory measures he, had to
wrest authority from her by deposing
her. Asa did that which was good
and right in the eyes of tho Lord (v.
1. Cleared the land of idolatrous
emblems aud images (vv. 3, 5). (1)
Strange altars. These were the altars devoted to other gods. (2) High
places. These were places where
unlawful sacrifices were offered. (3)
Broke down thc images. These were
upright stones connected with idolatrous worship. (4) Cut down the
groves. These wero trees or poles
connected with tree worship. He had
all those relifs or idolatry destroyed
in Jerusalem and other cities throughout his kingdom:
2. Commanded Judah lo seek the
Lord (v. 4). He knew that if the
reformation was to be effective it
must be by the positive seeking after
and worshiping of God, accompanied
by obedience to His commandments.
Destructive work avails little unless
followed by constructive.
If. Asa's Defensive Preparations,(vv.
1. Built fortified cities (v. 6). The
cities are not named, but the meaning, doubtless, is that it was a general
system of defence which involved the
cities at strategic points.
2. He erected walls about the
cities (v. 7). These were usually of
stone. Upon the walls were, observation towers from which the position
and movements of the enemy could be
seen, and from which defensive warfare could be waged.
3. Made gates and barred them
(v. J). The reason he assigns for
these defensive preparations was that
they had sought the Lord God. Those
who really trust God will make every
effort to provide, defence.
i. Had an army of spearmen (v. S).
These spearmen were also protected
wii.h*"large shields. The army was
made up of 4S0,000 brave men. They
were prepared to wage an offensive
as well as a defensive war.
III. Asa's Victory Over Zerah, the
Ethiopian (vV. 9-12),
1. Asa set the battle in array (v.
10). He went out to meet the enemy.
He first made a disposition of his
means of defence. This was wisdom
on his part. Intelligent faith moves
the possosov to do first that which
is within his power.
2. Asate prayer (vv. 11, 12). He
cried Unto tho Lord. He sought
the source of national power. In
this prayer note (1) Ins conscious
helplessness. ' As he, faced the Egyptian army two to one against him, he
was clearly conscious of his impot-
ericy. The first requisite in obtaining help from God is conscious weakness. The Christian conquers not by
self-reliance, but by self-distrust and
faith ln God. (2) Appeals to God
for help. Ho knew that though they
\vere-lie!plcss""bei'ore "the-mighty" enemy, with God's help they could win
the victory, One man with God is a
majority. ��� (3) Reposes faith in God.
The word "rest," means to lean upon
���to cast the entire .weight upon. In
the measure that, we realize our need
of support will we lean hard upon
God. - (i) Advanced courageously.
He went, forth depending upon God to
fight for him. Real faith does hot
wait until it sees its,way clear, but
goes forth expecting God to clear the
way. (5) Flung himself upon God's
arm?. "O Lord, thou art. our God."
His cause was God's cause

National Council of Education
Triennial Conference to be Held in
Toronto  in  1923
Into the minds of a group of citizens of Western Canada, there came
in 1917 the idea that a concerted attempt should bo made to rally the
best public opinion of the nation behind the schools of the Dominion, the
direction of which is assigned by our
constitution to the Province. It was
contended that the Education Departments' cannot be fully effective if
unsupported by an interested and
alert public opinion.
The preliminary conference held at
Winnipeg in October, 1919, called the
National Council into being. The
next conference is now being organized by that council as a definite expression of its aim and proposed activities, as a means of creating public
opinion and invoking its entire force
on behalf of an educational ideal. This
conference is to be held at Toronto at
Easter, 1923,. the entire cost of its organization having been most generously undertaken by the Rotary Club
of that city. Toronto will be made
the conference-centre for a Dominion-
wide educational campaign in which
all cities and towns will bo simultaneously interested by notable speakers.
Willi this in view, committees are
now in course of constitution at the
more important points, and through
them, Canada will be asked to consider vital aspects of Education, and
formulate opinion and suggestion as a

Our Town Expansion
Dear Mk. Editoh:���
It- cannot surely be possible
in this day of progress, when
every eye scans the sky for evidences of the morning of a greater
day, that any place should do as

then sit down as if to say, 'I climb
no further upward.' Every prince
of business and every controller of
finance in Canada is Beginning to
chirp hia spring song of better
times and bigger things. The
ebbing tide must shortly flow.
The resurge of optimism is reflected
in the rising value of Canadian
money in the foreign market. It
id now nearer par in the United
States than that of any other
country. Our assets are beginning
to surpass our liabilities in such
fashion as to increasa our credit.

The warm  weather  of the past
few days has  drawn   to a close thv
curling season  aud it  has been a
most exciting and   enjoyable year
for all members.    It  is impossible
for a man to play this game without  putting  his mind  to it.    For
two hours he must  forget his business worries   and   cares,   for   the
game'   holds    his    attention.    It
brings  people   together   from   all
parts of the country  and lays the
foundation for friendships that are
enduring.    To the moralist curling
is the finest sport.    It typifies life's
experience  in   a   thousand   ways.
Here   is   the   cautious  man   who
"hogs"   his  stone,   aud  the   over
jealous  man  runs   '-through   the
house."     There are  types  ofthe
conservative    and     racial.      One
"hangs to the tail  of  progress and
hollers whoa," the other runs riot
and    destruction    follows   in   his
wake.    Or as four  men  of a  rink
go on the ice they typify  the ideal
partnership,   the  first  man lays a
foundation iu exactness, the second
knocks   out of   the way injurious
competition;   the third  man  does
all necessary  to  protect the interests of his business���now guarding
against loss,   now making a little
addition to capital invested,   while
the  skip,   directing  all,   comes to
the rescue at the critical   moment,
and  by   masterful   strategy    and
with skillful resource turns apparent failure into glorious success.
Other views of the game our
readers may work out easily, for
these are the serious, the poetical,
the tragic and the comic aspects.
Above all curling is a sport in
which young and old freely intermingle. It is not a young man's
game nor an old man's game. It
is for everybody���and his wife.
A new man got a job as a porter
on a railway train, and one of his
first duties was to learn the rules,
as laid down in the rule book, of
the railway for the safety of the
train and passengers. He prided
himself on knowing them perfectly.
One night the conductor going
through the Bleeping car noted a
red lantern hanging in the passage
way. He called the new porter
and asked him what the red lantern
was doing there. "Why chief,"
said the porter, "I was just carrying out the rules." "Never heard
of any rule call ing for a red lantern
in a sleeping car" answered the
conductor, "Where did you get it
from?" With an air of perfect
positiveness the new porter got out
his book of rules and pointed out
Rule 27���"Caution���Always hang
out a red lantern when the rear
end of a sleeper is exposed. "���Ex

To make one smile again;
So while we have our mother, boy,
Let's drive away her fear;
And while we have our father, boy,
Let's fill his heart with cheer.
There's no one like a mother, lad,
