that all birds, that-are. ..useful .to

The protection shotild also be extended to the singing, birds and
birds of beauty, that are-not'/de-

that knowledge of Canadian birds

reasons may be added the pleasure

The Bookworm
Zoo Keeper's
Struggle With
Big Python
Prince of Wales' Gift Proved Hard to
An exciting aud perilous task fell
to the "Zoo" keepers in housing the
monster Malayan reptiles presented
by the Prince of Wales.
These included a full-sized reticulated python���the largest of all
snakes���and it king cobra, tho most
deadly and vicious.
The    reptiles,    which includo  two
hawksblll turtles, being unsuited for
exhibition with tho remainder of the
. Prince's collection of   animals,   have
been installed in the reptile houses.
Though weighing nearly V/2 cwt,
the larger of the hawksblll turtles
v,-as conveyed to his large salt water
aquarium easily enough���by merely
taking him upside down in a sack.
His oblique eyes are now to be
seen glaring through the plate-glass
front, as though furious at having
to suffer such an indignity.
It was the snakes that provided
the sensation.
No fewer than 1G assistants were
required to escort, the python to its
den, for it could give another specimen at tho "Zoo," which is 22 ft.
long, a couple of yards, and then
beat it���"at 11 stretch."
When the large crate was lowered
into the courtyards there was much
scratching of heads ln the effort to
evolve a safe plan for the eviction of
the occupant, for, though not a venomous snake, the python, as a constric-
" tor, could crush a keeper as easily as
the latter could a grape.
As it was found impossible to convey the crate to the appointed den,
there was nothing else to -bo done
but carry the snake there bodily.
It was a sensational moment when
the lid was suddenly thrown '- wide
open, revealed the huge serpent coiled within.
"While one of the keepers, according to plan, attracted ihe python's
attention, the remainder made a
grab at some portion of its body.
' With attendants alternately, on
either side of it,1 and less than 2 ft
apart, the snake was hauled -forth
and carried writhing, to its cage, into
which, like a gigantic hose, it was
bundled, tall first���so that its head
was held in restraint until the last.
After the keepers had recovered
from their strenuous efforts, they
tackled the king cobra. ���
When 14 is stated that this Is the
largest, boldest and most ��� dangerous of all venomous snakes, and that
~its~bile produces death"in man within two hours, and that even an elephant has died from its bite in less
Liver Pains
Pains under the shoulder
blades tell of liver derangements.
Other indications aie sallow
complexion, indigestion, constipation, biliousness and bilious headaches.
The quickest way to arouse the
liver to healthful action is by use
of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Continued use will insure lasting
relief, correct the whole digestive
system and purify the blood.
Mrs. Wm. Barten, Hanover,
Ont- v/rites:

dowjj feeling in rny back which I could

When    He   Is   Shelved   He   May   Still
Have Great Authors As His
That the man who spends his life
among books occupies but an ignoble
place in the imagination of the multitude must indeed be admitted. But
that matters little, according to a writer in the Bookman's Journal. Nor
need he let it occasion him any uneasiness. AVhen lie may envy those
heroes of the ring, those whose claim
to fame is that they can kick a ball
twice as far as the next man, those
who can make their century before a
wicket, those who are "first in the
field and first with the oar." That ho
does envy them is probable, for we
arc all prone to admire in others that
which wo most lack in ourselves, and
your bookish man is seldom a Hercules.
But let him wait. Old age creeps
on the athlete as on the scholar, and
ignorant old age is perhaps the most
pitiable picture that Father Time can
draw. AVhen his strong limbs fail
him, when physical pleasures aro
beyond him, when his senile vaporiugs
but weary, the younger generation,
what is left of him but to laze away
his life like a tortoise? Sleeping and
eating are the measure of his capacities. But the Bookworm has learned
from his studies how to live and discourse with himself. Not for him
the lamentable lot of dependence on
the grudging company of his relatives
who humor him with alternate curse
and cajolery, as they wait complacently his longed-for demise.
He may choose his company at will
from the great authors of all ages. If
he disagrees with their opinions he
need not fear their upbraiding, but has
only to lay them aside. He need not
find the evening long or life tedious.
Finally it may be advanced for the
Bookworm that he, by his very existence and passion, saves from destruction many a good book which would
otherwise perish by neglect. For
books are sorely beset throughout
their lives by hostile forces, and were
it not for this kindly race who can say
what crimes might not be committed
in the names of Progress and Hygiene?

If Cows Are Free From the Complaint,
Pigs Will Be Protected
Packers assert that too great a proportion of the hogs they receive are
tuberculous. This suggests a refer-
j ence to Bulletin No. 16 of the Health
of Animals Branch of the Dominion
Department of Agriculture, wherein is
told how and why swine become affected. From tubercular cows, we
are informed, infection gets to the
pigs in milk that has become contaminated. The complaint is spread
much in the same way as among cattle, that is by dirt, bad ventilation and
neglect. Stunted, rickety pigs are
more likely to become affected than
well-grown, well-fed and healthy ones.
The symptoms unfortunately are rarely manifest during the life of the pig
.owing to its usual brevity. This
makes it more important that precautions should be taken. Until tuberculosis is eradicated from the dairy
cows and the herds are proven free,
other measures intended to protect
swine from the disease will be of little
value. Pasteurization of milk from
suspected cows will help, as will the
thorough cooking of garbage that is
fed to the pigs; but cleanliness, sanitation, ventilation, and light are the
immediate desiderata and may be accounted the most effective. Although
as lias been said, the disease can rare-,
ly be identified in swine, its presence
among young pigs can be accepted as
indicated by emaciation, weakness, un-
thriftiness in appearance and an inclination to cough.

Developing Abilities
Performance     of     Anything     Worth
While Means a Lot of Hard Work
How many times havo you been
forced to ^undertake some piece of'
work which you did not believe you
could perform, only to find "yourself
agreeably surprised at the creditable
way in which you' finally accomplished
it? You discovered latent abilities
Avhich, only came to light through the
driving force of necessity. There is
no, doubt we all have possibilities
which we do not suspect. All that is
needed to' develop them is self-confidence and initiative.    ,
Many people never succeed because,
they never try. They lack faith in
themselves. The habit of saying, "I
can't," is an easy one to acquire and
it grows stronger with time, but it
does not lead to accomplishment. It
does not put our faculties to work to
overcome the perplexities of thc job
which confronts us. Many people
feel that unless they can solve some
problem easily they lack the ability
to "do it at all." ~ They do not realize
that the performance of anything
worth while requires "much hard.work
and hard thinking.'
Don't allow yourself to become "conceited or. to get Into an overconfident
frame of mlnd'in regard to your ability, but nevertheless do not give up
trying to achieve some goal until you
have brought your faculty into play.
If you concentrate strongly enough, on
the effort you will be surprised at the
results.     *"   .
Marquis Wheat Has Brought Millions
of Dollars to Canada
Since the inception of the Dominion
Experimental Farms up to 1922 there
have been originated by the Cereal
Division seventy-four new varieties
and selections of grain, Including 29
varieties of spring wheat, 9 varieties
of oats, 14 of barley, 7 of peas, one
each of spring rye, winter rye, emmer
nnd sunflowers, 6 of beans, and 5 of
flax. The principal variety of all is
Marquis wheat, which has won prizes
wherever shown and has brought millions of dollars to Canada. Although
the Farms came into life in 1SS6, this
great work has mainly been done in
the present century, first under the
direction of the late Dr. "William Saunders, who was Director of the Farms
up to J902, and then under Dr.
Charles E. Saunders, who became Dominion Cerealist in- 3903, aud in the
winter of that year and 1901 gave the
country the famous Marquis, which
was obtained from a mixed variety
called Markh'am, which was in turn
secured from a cross made in 1892 between Hard Red Calcutta and Red
Weak on Natural History
Edsel Ford was talking to a group
of Hancock villagers at the Edison-
Ford-Firestone camp. "The average
man," he said, "is as ignorant of machinery as the young lady irom the
city lo ignorant of natural history.
This young lady, who was.visiting a
farmer uncle, stood one day on the
edge of a pond and gazed down jntent-
ly'on the thousands of tadpoles in the
shallow water. 'Look at those tadpoles," she said in a hushed, reverent
voice. 'How wonderful is great nature's plan! To think that some day
every one of those horrid, wriggling
things will be a gorgeous butterfly
sipping honey from flower to flower!"

Safety Vault Defies Burglars
Great Storehouse in London, England,
Is Wonderfully*"Constructed
One of the most wonderful storehouses of treasured possessions is in
London, England, and is known as the
Chancery Lane Safe Deposit.
For a fee of from a guinea upwards
anyone can store his or her belongings
in the Deposit, which is so constructed and guarded that no burglar, however clever he may me, could ever
hope to break into it.
The 10,000 sares which the Deposit
contains are protected more elaborately even than the Crown Jewels or the
bullion at the Bank of England.
The basement of the building is
divided into a series of strong-rooms,
each of which holds 500 safes. No
safe can be opened except in the presence of the depositor and an official
of the Deposit.
The strong-rooms weigh 500 tons
apiece, and their locks are set to open
only at a given hour in the day.
Each strong-room is detached from
its neighbors, so that an armed patrol
can walk below, above and around it,
mirrors reflecting every movement in
the vicinity.
In addition to these precautions, the
whole of the outer shell of the Deposit is. specially reinforced with armour-plating. ��� A pretty tough proposition !
Some of the safes contairflncredible
sums, riming into millions. The diamond merchants of Hatton Garden
nearby deposit millions of pounds'
worth of precious gems in the course
of a year.
Probably $125,000,000 is not too

THE     LEDGE.     .GREENWOOD.     B.   . C.
Situation Is Tense
Between The British
AndTurkish Nationalists
Constantinople.���The situation between the British and Turkish Nationalists is extremely tense.
A note from Kenial Pasha to Brig.-
Cen. Harrington, the British commander, couched in a hostile tenor, is
hot;regarded among British military
circles here as opening the door to a
pacific settlement of the straits question. ' '   ...
The note demands the retirement
of all the British troops from the
Asiatic side of the Straits, as tlie
French and Italians have done, and
Kemal says, in case of acquiescence,
he will withdraw the Nationalist
forces "slightly from the neutral
zone." It also demands the cessation
of what are termed the arbitrary
measures of the British authorities in
Constantinople in-dealing with the
Turkish population and a solemn undertaking that no Greek vessel be permitted to pass the Dardanelles. It
concludes with a protest ugainst the
destruction of Turkish war material
in the Straits/ The note to Kemal
. was in reply to the last written communication of General Harrington,
transmitted through Hamid Bey, the
National representative to Constantinople to Kemal in Smyrna.
It is felt in British circles that, they
would be forced to''modify their conciliatory attitude at the moment the
Turks bring up heavy artillery with
which they would be able to seriously
threaten the European side .of the
Dardanelles and also hamper passage
through the Straits of British vessels.
Six submarines of the British Atlantic fleet have arrived and will be used
to prevent tho transports of- Turkish
troops across the Sea of Marmora in
the event of war between the British
and Turks. The British also have
posted batteries in strategic positions
on the Asiatic side of-the Bosphorus.
If Kemal persists in his demand for
the evacuation of the Asiatic, side of
the Straits, it is believed the British
in no circumstances will alter their resolve, to preserve the inviolability of
the "international waterway.
A formidable fighting force in floating fortresses and powerful bonibing
and combatant aircraft, together possessed of... greater destructive power
than the British grand fleet at Scapa
Flow, now- guards the great international waterway of the Near East
iiom the narrows to the Black Sea.
Britain's gigantic armada in these
waters is led by the two 34,000-ton
. super-dreadnoughts. Revenge . and
Resolution. Then come the three
veritable giants of naval prowess, the
battleships Centurion, King George
and Iron Duke. Some of these
super-war craft possess ponderous 16-
inch guns having a range of 20, miles.
The remainder of the British naval
fighting force here consists of a number of the most modern cruisers, destroyers . and - the airplane carriers
Pegasus .and Argus.
The British arc confident that this
formidable line of fighting ships will
easily prove a stone wall barrier to
the Kemalists should the, latter attempt to cross tho Straits. It-is also
thought they will be a sufficient protection for the troops entrenched
Chanak and other points. -

Women Leaders In Thought
Mrs. L. C. McKinney Quoted As, Saying Women Have Place in Politics
and Pulpit
Toronto.���A quiet, dignified and
thoughtful person is Mrs. L. C. McKinney, of Alberta, who is in Toronto
attending the Methodist conference.
She;is an ex-member of the Legislative
Assembly of Alberta, and an official
delegate to the conference. She has
decided opinions on women's place in
the church.
"Certainly I feel that women have a
right in the pulpit," said Mrs. McKinney. "A woman who is fitted for it
and has a real desire to do it should
be allowed to preach. It is impossible, of course, for married women
with a family, but tliere are plenty of
unmarried women w'ho are well qualified for the task."
Mrs. McKinney also feels that women have a vital place in politics.
"When I was in Parliament I was
interested in questions involving moral issues and the rights of women and
children," she said, "but I don't think
a woman's interest in politics should
be purely social."
"Do you approve of dancing?" she
was asked.
"No,   I   don't
Mrs. McKinney, slowly.     "I have never danced myself and I feel that much
of the modern dancing is very deplorable;
Mrs. McKinney feel's that prohibition has becn a success in the west.
"We have the great disadvantage in
Canada, however, that prohibition, is
not a Federal enactment," she said.
"A good deal'of liquor is brought into
Alberta from British Columbia."

War Upon Drugs
Authorities Want All to Co-operate to
Stamp Out Evil
Ottawa���Co-operation between municipal, provincial and federal police
forces; the formation of special
"dope" squads in larger cities, and
eternal vigilance are. necessary to
stamp out the drug traffic in Canada,
according to federal officials charged
with enforcing the Opium and Narcotic Drug Act.
The act provides, stiff punishment
for dope traffickers and dcportaiion is
already provided. Canada has a
careful system of checking legitimate
imports and the .distribution of the
drug once it leaves the hands of the
Importers. But, according lo federal
officials, a certain amount of lethargy" and lack of co-operation between the different forces is a handicap to the effectual stamping out of
the scourge.
Montreal is at present the worst
centre of illicit drug traffic in Can-
think so," answered ada, according to F. W. Cowan, who
is chief of the branch of the health
department enforcing the laws.
Constantinople.���Events are surely
approaching a climax. The Turks
have occupied the entire neutral zone
on the Asiatic side of the Dardanelles
with the exception of the Chanak
area, around which they have established infantry units in a semi-circle,
virtually investing the British lines.
The Turkish instructions to the men
in the Chanak sector are to advance
the farthest possible without meeting
resistance. They are now practically against the British entrenchments,
and obviously the situation cannot be
indefinitely prolonged. The Turkish
cavalry squadrons are retiring, and
the British troops, wlio are iu strong
force at Chanak, are ready for whatever may happen.
British reinforcements are reaching here and the threatened area. The
super-dreadnoughts, Revenge and
Resolution, the most powerful fighting
machines afloat, have arrived in the
Dardanelles, while a battalion of
North Staffordshires and 1,000 men of
the British air forces landed and
marched through Constantinople with
bands playing. Their presence has
helped bring about a reassuring effect.
Notwithstanding the Kemalist concentrations around Chanak, the British are confident of holding their lines,
against all odds. They declare that
their flanks are well protected by the
fleet The battleships, with thcir 16-
inch guns, can sweep the whole area
around Chanak for a distance of 20
miles, and it is possible for the British to.dismount some of their giant
naval guns and use them for shore
batteries. "
The Turks at present have only machine guns in the Chanak area. If
they have brought up heavy artillery,
the security of the Chanak may be
seriously challenged, the British admit, but the entrenchments in this
sector are said to be more efficient
than any used in the " Great War.
Since September 11, 2,000 men from
the army have been steadily building
trenches and setting up gun emplacements.

���Although  the  Liberal   party in
British  Columbia  has  not  held a
convention  for  eight  years,   until
the big rally iu Nelson   last week,
.still it is  conceded that the affair
was a huge success and  resulted in
perfect unity and harmony within
the ranks.    From every section of
the  province some   ,'500  delegates
gathered    aud    many    important-
issues were considered and decided.
Chief amoug these was the settlement of the Pacific  Great Eastern
Railway   issue.      Although   three
railway  experts,   J.   G.   Sullivan,
W. P.   Hinton  and Colonel  J.   S.
Dennis stated that they  could see
little hope in continuing to operate
the line,   still   Premier Oliver and
his ministers,   as well   as members
of the  caucus,   decided to face the'
issue by  completing  the   line   to
Prince  George and   operating the
entire .road from Squamish  to the
interior city.
Iu this way the huge investment
of 840,000,000 already suuk in the
P. G, E, will be protected and the
credit of the province not impaired.
In other words the Oliver administration decided to rely upon the
tremendous natural resources of
the province to pull the railway
out of the hole. As Premier Oliver
remarked, British Columbia is
capable of supporting the provincial railway, provided the cost of
operation is reduced and settlers
placed upon tho lauds along the
The next step to be taken will be
the working out of a comprehensive colonization policy, so that the
lauds in the Cariboo, Lillooet aud
Fort George districts may be placed
upon a producing basis.
Another important resolution
passed by the convention urged the
government to proceed with the
completion of the British Columbia*
University on the government
lands at Point Grey. Even delegates from interior points spoke
strongly in favor of ...this, agreeing
that7the766nstruC);i0{i:7 of7a suitable:

that it would bo necessary for the
department tp cut down the loads
permissible on motor-trucks, since
at present the roads were being
badly impaired in places through
the hauling of too heavy loads.
Resolutions were passed commending the government for its
splendid labor legislation, statutes
enacted for the betterment of the
conditions of women and children
and colonization policy. The administration was advised to provide even better accommodation
for tubercular patients, although
praise was forthcoming for the way
the government had cut down thn
death-rate from tuberculosis.
As the result of a resolution introduced by women delegates, the
fair sex will be allowed to serve on
juries in future, and if the Liberals
have anything to say about tie
matter Asiatics will bo excluded
from this province in future. A
resolution was introduced and,
passed after a great deal of discus
sion, the flnal decision being that
the Federal government should be
petitipued tp make it impossible
for Orientals- to enter British
Columbia or acquire title to land?
,a_id other natural resources.
Protection of the fruit industry
was strongly urged, several speakers pointing out that the industry
was being killed through the non
enforcement of the anti-dumping
legislation passed by Ottawa last
session. It was shown that 20,000
people were dependent upon the
fruit industry and that there was
an investment of fully $100,000,-
