A Promising Mine
The stockholders in the Southern Minnesota and , Washington
Mining company met in Oroville,
recently, and organized to develop
claims near that town on the
boundary line. In reference to
this the Oroville Gazette says:
"There is every reason to believe
that with the organization of the
company this locality is going to
at last see a mine placed in the
producing class, not only on account of the character of, the men
interested, but because the company owns property that has all
the earmarks of a real mine. The
holdings of the Southern Minnesota
and Washington. Mining company-
embraces the claims oace known
as the Lone Pine, situated on the
summit of the ridge on the north
side of the Similkameen river, a
short distance east of Nighthawk,
and only a few miles from Oroville.
Many years ago an excellent grade
of ore was uucavered on these
claims, but it was left to the present holders of the ground to finally
demonstrate the real value of this
property. - The holdings are immediately along the international
boundary line, and a portiou of the
claims lie in British Columbinr,
where the larger and more promising ore deposits have been discovered, showing that the ledge, or
ore zone, is a very extensive one,
as ore has been exposed at points a
long distance, apart on both eides
of the, boundary. Where this de-
posit has more recently been
opened up the ledge is ten or
twelve feet wide and assays show
that the ore carries strong values
in silver, copper and lead. There
is eg much of this ore in sight that
shipments to a smelter cauld-bo
made at once, or there is sufficient
to justify a treatment plant or
smelter near the workings. What
policy is to be followed remains to
determined by  the stockholders.'/

In the summer time, when lettuce
and tomatoes are rather plentiful and,
therefore, fairly cheap, we find them
on the average menu frequently. But
in the winter some housewives forget
that there is such a thing as salads.
Out in California they serve a fine
potato salad. The hot, boiled potatoes���boiled just right at a bubble
707 i rather than a boil���are cut into half-
inch cubes. Sufficient mayonnaise to
well moisten is added. The potatoes,
being hot, drink in the mayonnaise
arid acquire better flavor than when
spread over cold ones.
An equal quantity of diced tabic
celery is added and additional white

Reniarka made bv a Bengalese
graduate of the University of Calcutta, passing through TQprontcy bearing on the situation in jfiidia, arc eminently worthy of notice by those too
ready to take a superficial view of
recent disorders there and to utter
hostile criticism of the means of suppression. His opinion that the
"Hindus would go on their bended
knees to the last British soldier and
implore them to stay, if Britain would
ever decide to withdraw from India,"
coupled with subsequent views expressed, merely bear out well-
known historical facts, and coincide
with those .of British extraction whose
lives have been spent in that vast
empire, and who, consequently, arc
fully conversant with the true situation there.���Hamilton Spectator,

in Canada but in all countries. The money had to be obtained quicklyand

responsibility and necessity.
Another step In the evolution of war taxation in Canada was taken by
the imposition of a Federal income tax���a field of taxation which had
hitherto been regarded as appertaining to the provinces and municipalities.
A"oper Income Tax is, however, generally recognized as being a fair and
nakedness.
III. The Accusation (v. 37).
It was customary to place over the
victim   of   the   cross. the name and
crime of-the   offender.     This   super-

the people. The system is complicated arid highly confusing; the adminis-1
tration is .autocratic;' the manner of enforcing payment intolerable to a
democratic and self-respecting people, and the whole extravagantly expensive in operation. ,(. ..-.,',.���
Instead of a simple plan of administration and collection through existing municipal, agencies being followed, a most elaborate department was
created, employing a small army of men and women. The most minute
detailed information Is called for, and an outrageous list of penalties provided for even minor breaches in the observance of this elaborate scheme.
There are normal taxes, super-taxes, percentage-additional taxes, additions
for this and substractions for that, and penalties galore, until the proverbial
Philadelphia lawyeT would bc hard put to it to know what is required of the

Tax seems to have been framed upon the assumption that-the' citizens of,
this Dominion arc essentially dishonest and.unpatriotic, and in not a few
instances thc tax is being administered in much the same spirit. All right'

This was another, fulfillment of
Scripture (Isa. 53:12). "He was numbered with the transgressors." In
.these three crosses we have set forth
a spirtual history of the whole

V. The   Dying Savior Reviled (w.
39-44).     .
This reviling was engaged in by the
passerby, the chief priests, scribes and
ciders, and the thieves who were crucified with Him. In their mockery
they unwittingly spake great truths.
1. "Hc savid others, Himself hc cannot save" (v. 42). This jest was
meant to show thc absurdity, of Jesus'
claims, but it demonstrated them and
showed the reason for His sufferings.
He could not save Himself and others,
so He chose to give Himself to save
others.-
2. If.He be the King of Israel, let
Him now. come down from the cross".
(v, 42). ' His refusal to abandon the
cross established His- royal claims.

Failure of State Control In

North Dakota means the closing

funds by law.. For the last four
years it has been the: dominating
figure in North Dakota banking
Business men have always
doubted the ability of a state to
carry on a bank, build homes, ele-1"
vators and mills, and extend extensive credit to farmers without
getting into difficulties. During
the period in which the Non-Partisan League was' in power the
bank and the program flourished,
but with the failure of its political
banking and the inability to sell
its bonds it began to totter. Expectations of its failure were
common among business men some
time ago.

POLITICS IN FINANCB
A Situation Which Should Be Carefully Studied By Those Who
Propose Government Banks
In Canada.
The advantages of the Canadian
branch bank system are being more
and more appreciated in .the United
States. Floyd W. Parsons, in the
"Saturday Evening Post," declares
that money is cheaper in Canada than
in the U.S. because of the efficient
banking system. The collapse of the
banking system to North Dakota
is responsible for general criticism of
the attempts at socialistic financing
in that state which should be carefully considered by those who advocate government banks in Canada.
Bank managers, should post themselves on these developments as providing an effective reply to the critics
of  the Canadian bank3.���J.  W. T.
There is a lesson for the radicals of
Canadian provincial finance in thc latest fiasco of North Dakota banking
and finance. American bankers, both
East and West, during the week turned down North Dakota's proposed
$6,000,000 bond Issues, though tempted with a 9 per cent, interest rate.

Receivership for-the State.
The Wall Street Journal suggests
that North Dakota should go into a
receivership:
What is obviously needed in the
state of North Dakota is a receivership for the state itself. The offer of
outside banks, possibly already committed, to finance bonds, of the state
