Mr. and Mrs. Jas. E. Whiting
accompanied by their daughter,
Mrs. A. ' Mowat, arrived from
England on Friday morning. In
a two column article the Hamp-
stead  , Express  says    in   part:
When Mr. Whiting leaves us a
landmark will be tubbed out; an
integral part of Hampstead will
disappear and their will be a
void which cannot be filled. He
goes on a long journey to a new
and what in course of years will
be a greater country. He leaves
hehind him many friends, some
of old standing, some of new;
nature students who will keep a
soft place in their hearts for their
preceptor; and pupils of all kinds
and degrees. Thought can annihilate space, and while bodily in
the freer and greater west, Mr.
Whiting, we are absolutely sure
in his kind-heartedne?s. will often
find himself back in the ancient
borough on the Northern Heights
in over wrought ahd oyer taxed
England.    For forty y^irs Mr.
Correspondent for the Hampstead
Express besides writing a number
of books and the'mayor of Hampstead in .writing to the Express
says there must be thousands,
like myself who have derived infinite pleasure from the perusal
of his articles. I also hope that,
with the departure of Mr. Whiting, this series of articles will
not be allowed to drop from your
columns. I have had opportunities of realizing the value of Mr.
Whiting's services to the community and of appreciating his
rafe, delightful personality."

Good Roads In The West
Tiit ariiek' appearing in tliis column. 1:ist week dealing with the in-
ilucnci: and-. ���.��� Ift-ci ul" good -.ill-the-
ycar roads upon school attendance,
belter schools and the development,
of rural high schools,''concluded with
a reference to what the I'rovince of
Uuebec is doing in good roads
building and the markedly beneficial
effect it is having on agriculture, industry aud education in that Province, and how enthusiastically tho
people there are. in support 01 a --���������.
tiuuancc of a policy which is creating
such un improvement in the. life and
prosperity of the.  i'rovince.
What, ii being accomplished in
Quebec, is not only of'direct be tie fit-
to that Province, but indirectly it
benefits Canada as a whole, although,
it must be admitted, the effect will
not be very noticeable in these Western Provinces except thai, insofar as
Quebec advances, the whole Dominion is advanced and benefitted by
what has been regarded as our most
-backward Province coining in line
-with the other Provinces. The good
roads program of Quebec is. a sign
of an awakened Province, and those
roads wiV. prove a most influential
factor iu .making- the I'rovince still
more progressive.
The question is: Are the other
Provinces of Canada, aud more particularly these Western' Provinces,
going to  emulate Quebec's    example
��� in respect--   to., good roads    construc-
��� tion?    It.can hardly  be  doubled' but
"that ihey-will, and the question  then
arises,- how soon are they going "to
begin to create" a system, of- .hard^
"surfaced'main' highway??'' The fur-
"tlicr question presents itself: Is the
present an opportune time for..the. inauguration o\ such' a .policy? .
_ Wc. submit that, now- is lhe.accepted tinie, a tui we.-propose to-gtvo-a few.
reasons for ��� tltat-'-bolicf: ." T.lic Dominion Government, lias recently pro-
yidod a-yotc of $->0,000,0:vj to be-paid
to   the   .Provinces   on" -a   population
itself is: Can these Western Provinces finance their proportion of this
program, and at the.same lime eon- j
tiulie lo spend ihe large sums necessary in these new Provinces on what
are piopcer roads and which must be
built to enable farmers in re.inoU' districts to get to market, 1 -< us take
Saskatchewan- .as an example, and
what is true of it is proportionately
true of Manitoba and Alberta.
Jn   this   present   year  of   191U   Saskatchewan will derive a revenue from
automobile    licenses    of    upwards of
$800,000. Saskatchewan's annual grant
from the Dominion under the proposed ncw '"highways    scheme    will    be.
i $361,200 a year, which  will call  for a
further     provincial     expenditure     of
|S541,800.    Saskatchewan  can find  tliis
| from   its  automobile   license   revenue
| aud still have a quarter of a million
dollars   left   over.     And   surely   automobile    license    moneys    should    bc
spent   on   roads,   and   good   hard-sur-
: faced permanent roads at lhat.
Furthermore, if our Western Provincial Governments take over full
i responsibility for the building and
(maintenance of certain main roads iu
I municipalities, and thus relieve the
j municipalities of all expenses in con-
jnee.tion therewith, the. municipalities'
bencfi^ally affected thereby could, in
turn, well afford lo forego the small
grants of a few hundred dollars they
may now receive, from, l]ic Province.
l"or every dollar lliey thus relinquished they would receive, several
dollars hack in the for. i df permanently constructed and maintained
main roads.
The largest number of imtomojii.
owners in these. Western Provinces-
arc, farmers. Hard-surfaced roads
will extend the period of lime in thc
year that motor cars can be used, and
will reduce the wear and : ar on lhe
same, ilitis increasing their value to
the farmer. Their grei.lc. value and
utility will lead lo a further increase
iu lhe number of cars used, and, consequently, provide a still larger
license revenue from which a consistent and ever larger program of
good roads'-construction can be carried on.
The moral of the. situation would
seem ��� to be that every Western farmer should become a good roads
booster, and should bring all possible
legitimate pressure to bear upon his
Provincial Government to embark
upon a well planned, progressive
policy for -the construction of permanent hard-surfaced main roads?-
Canton, Ohio.���"I suffered from a
female trouble which caused me much
suffering, and two
doctors decided
that I would have
to go through an
operation before I
Gould get well.
. "Mymother, who
had beon helped by
���Lydia I!. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, advised me
to try i t before su b-
mitting to an operation. It relieved me
from my troubles
bo I can do my house work without any
difficulty. I advise any woman who is
afflicted with female troubles to give
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial and it will do as much for
them."���Mrs. Mauie Boyd, 1421 5th
St., N. E., Canton, Ohio.
Sometimes there are serious conditions where a hospital operation ia tho
only alternative, but on the other hand
so many women have been cured by this
famous root and herb remedy, Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, after
doctors have said that an operation was
necessary���every woman who' wants
to avoid an operation should give it a
fair trial before submitting to such a

PAINFUL RHEUMATISM
May Be Driven Out of the System
By Enriching thc Blood
In the days of our fathers and
grandfathers rheumatism was thought
to be the unavoidable penalty of middle lifc and ^old age. Almost every
elderly person bad rheumatism, as
well as many young people. Medical
science did not understand the
trouble���did not know that it was
rooted in the blood. Tl was thought
that rheumatism' was the mere effect
of exposure lo cold and damp, and it
was treated with 'liniments and hot
applications, which sometimes gave
temporary relief","bnt did not cure the.
trouble, Tn those days there were
fho.tisands-' of. rheumatic- cripples.
Now, - medical science 'understands
that rheumatism is a disease of the
blood, and that with good, rich, red
blood any man or woman of aiiy age.
can .defy - rheumatism, can be "cured
by..,killing ;ihe ' poison in . thc blood

Calgary.���Canada is to . havc a
thoroughly organized air squadron as
part of its military equipment in the

"There has been some, misapprehension regarding lhc offer of airplanes from . the Britisii Government
to Canada," said_ Brig.-Gen. Biggar,
"and I believe some announcement
on thc subject Avill bc made shortly
in parliament.
"Thc. Canadian Government has accepted thc offer of the Britisii Government of 100 of thcir best airplanes
with all equipment which goes with
the machines. fn addition lo this
gift of J00 machines, there will be 16
other replacements of airplanes presented from Canadian soiuc.es and
organizations during the war to the
Briiish  Air  Ministry.
"These machines will be equipment
for an air squadron which will be
organized, and-the Canadian Government will thus have one ot the best
air organisations as a part of its
military equipment. When the machines arc -turned oyer to us thcy
will be in perfect shape with ncw
parts wherever required, and- thcy
will be oj the very-best in the" possession   of -the. British 'Government."

Britain's Wheat Purchase
Relieved Financial Strain on Australian Wheat Board
Sydney, New South Wales.���Britain's purchase of 1,000,000 tons of
Australian wheat at 5s 6d a bushel
f.o.b. has greatly relieved the financial strain on the Australian Wheat
Board. Wheal growers arc hoping
that the Britisii Government will exercise its option lo purchase another
500,000 tons before the end of the
year. This huge sale to the Imperial
Government u ill not prejudice Australia's markets in South Africa, New-
Zealand and thc west coast of South
America, as piovision is madc in the
contract for thc retention of these
markets. The options held by Britain
are subject lo review in the event of
the ncw wheat season in Australia
not yielding a sufficient surplus to
supply adjacent markets. Probably
Britain will consent to take a portion of the wheat'in the form of (lour,
thus giving'cniploymeul to Australian
workmen  and Australian mills.

HATisDr.Webster'sdefinition. Many
of us know the. word only, in its
war-time application.
Webster dwells firstly upon the usage of tbe
word "morale" as applied to the common-place
happening* of. every-day life.    His allusion to it*
reference to *n army comes later.   And Webster is
corredl���meticulously so.
It was their private-life morale that made such
splendid soldiers of our boys when.die time cams
tor them to doirihe khaki. It was that, and that alone,
that made them take the first itep.and it was that which
carried them through to victory. If their every-day
moraie had been neglected, the Army could have done
mile with them and success would not have crowned
their efforts..
It is the many little incidents of your daily routine that make up'
yourmoraje-the morning shave, your clean linen, polished shoe*;!
brushed clothes. Webster speaks of zeal, spirit,- hope and conSl
dence. It is by attention to the small details of your personal
appearance that these may be attained. f������"��i
The Gillette Safely Razor enters as much into the morale of every*'
day life as it did into that of the trenches.   It helped our soldiers to''

Thank her hc did, and ut once, for
her' gracious reception, taking his
chair pgain when shc had seated herself. Then hc hesitated for an instant, not' awkwardly, but as though
trying to decide just how to begin.
He was an easy talker, but much attention on a hurried world had taught
him to bc brief and concise, wasting
no* timc in circumlocution; -o that
when hc spoke, it was directly to thc
point.
."I was just coming up thc Champs
Elysccs," said hc, "and I saw you go
into thc liotel.^ It was sort of funny,
> because there's- something that's bothering mc a good deal, aud I was,
wishing that I knew of somebody
who might be willing to put mc right.
When 1 saw you, I remembered how
nice you wcrc to me that day you
came into the ship, and I thought
that, maybe, as I woikcd for the company���which is'_sort of like working
for your family���yotr might be willing to give me a little advice." His
eyes rested on hers with a look of
frank, boyish appeal,
"I'm sure J should be very glad
to help you iu any way I can, Air.
Rugglcs," said Ruth, "lias it something to do with what I said to you
that day?"     "        ' ^
"Oh, no," said Rugglcs. "But before I go on, I ought to thank you
for that advice, too. I've put in my
application for thc managership or
thc Vienna branch. ' Wrote it that
night and sent it off the next day
with an endorsement from Mr. Durand, our managei. I guess there
won't bc any trouble about my-getting the-job. It looks like I had it
cinched." *- x
Ruth's face lighted.   '|iflni so glad!"
said shc warmly.   "Drop mc a line as
soon as you hear definitely, so that
_.I can send you a-word-of congratulation."
Rugglcs glowed. "Thank you ever
so much, Miss Downing," said hc.
"That will certainly bc my first act,
as soon as I hear." He hesitated
for an instant. "Say, M_iss Downing,"
hc asked, "do you think that there's
anything to be ashamed of about selling any first-class article directly to
customers? Anything, no> matter
what, like soap or " hats or underclothes or���shoes?"
��� "I most certainly do not!" answered Ruth decidedly. "What I said
that day was not to hurt your feelings���as you ought to have had sense
enough to know. It was merely,to
���well���to fire your ambition."
, "Oh, 1 wasn't'thinking"'of that,"
said Rucrglcs, "You couldn't say any-
��� thing lo hurt anybody's feelings if
you tried. Then you believe that a
man who tries on shoes is just-as
good as an j body e'.sc?" lie gave her
a keen loolc.
Ruth knit her broad brows and reflected for an instant.
"I do and I don't," shc answered.
"It's like this: If-thc man whose
work it is to try on shoes was as
good as lots of other men in brains
and body and general strong efficiency, hc would not bc very long contented al trying on shoes- for a living, and he would soon bc making_a
better living at a much less menial
occupation. Aftcr all, it's rather like
a servant'-* work���fitting clothes of
any sort to another person's^ body.
"Don't you think so, yourself?"
Ruggles's face clouded as he pondered this point of view for a moment.    Then   it   cleared.
"I guess you're right," said he.    "I

You sec, I ncvci thought much about j"   OT^IH t0ffl6S  1^0
the people who., bought 'cm.    I was
always thinking about thc shocs."
"That's llic reason," said Ruth tri-,
umphantly, "and a very good reason,
too."
She was'liking Rugglcs more and
more evcry moment, and this naive
explanation of his pleased her tremendously. Also, it suggested lo-her
mind a quite new idea, which was that
.while the p -oplc ��'ho patronize furnishers of various j sorts might disregard-them, just so might these furnishers disregard their customers except as a means of gaining a livelihood and fitting their handicraft to
the objects for which it had Ivccn dc;
signed. Ruggles's next words crys
tallizcd  this   thought/
"It's like tins,-" said he. ."I know
how lo make shocs and I know how
to fit 'cm and sell 'cm, to��. I'm sort
of like a. blacksmith, "as I look.at-it.
But most people have got a good deal
of respect for a blacksmith and don't
think any the less of him because
he fits a shoe to a horse or an ox
or a donkey.- Tlicy don't look at him
like as if he was the donkey's servant." He gave her his flashing
smile.. "In'iny business, I've shod
lots of donkeys���the two-legged
sort."
Ruth burst into a laugh, in which
Ruggles joined.
"Well," said'shc, "I think a good
deal as you do���but most people
don't. Now, there's Dick. He was
perfectly happy, to work in the- factory to learn how shoes wcrc made.
But he'd no more try on a pair of
shocs for a customer than hc would
shave himr���-AtuL-iLJie^cvcr did.try,
and' thc customer happened* to bc disagreeable, the chances arc that the
company would havc to pay Jor a
damage suit and a new plate-glass
window for the store."
Ruggles laughed and his 'eyes
kindled. Hc had often felt- that way
himself.
"Yes," said he/ more to himself
than to Ruth. "I'm beginning lo
catch on. I guess Darthca was
right." "      "
Ruth pricked up her cars. "Who
is Darthca?" she' demanded.1
"Darthca? Oh, she's an English
girl I know. Shc came into thc store
to buy some shoes thc other day,
when I was at woik. I didn't sec
her, but shc saw me. And now shc
won't have anything more to do with
mc because I sell shocs for a living.
You sec, lfcr folks arc all swells in
England. Her great-uncle was a
lord."
"Oh/' said Ruth softly. Shc -was
beginning to understand thc deeper
reason for Ruggles's call. ""Tell mc
about her. But first tell mc this:
Why didn't you let her know whg.t,
your work wail?"
"Shc never asked mc," said Rugglcs, "nor her aunt, ^Miss Challand.
I only got acquainted witli her the
day before you came into.thc st'orc.
-By thc timc I got to know her pretty
well, I was'waiting to hear that I'd
got the managership of ��� the Vienna
store; so I thought I. wouldn't tell
her anything until I was sure, and
then give her a surprise."
"I sec," said Ruth. Shc had dropped her chin in her hand and "was
staring at Rugglcs through narrowed
lids. "How did you happen to meet
her?"
"It wa* up on the 'Marne," said
Rugglcs. ""I 'most always go out in
the country on my bike when I get a
day off, and ��� I was riding along thc
river when I ran on to" a couple "of
tramps bothering a girl who was
painting, all by herself. She'd given
'cm a-couple of-francs,-hut-thcyliad
seen some more money in her purse
and were -trying, to scare her into
giving, it up. I shoved 'cm into thc
river and wc both beat it���"
"You shoved thcm into thc river?"
Ruth's violet eyes began, to glow.
"Yes," "admitted Rugglcs. ''There
wasn't anything else to do. They
wcrc big, husky fellows and had
clubs. I took 'cm unawares' and
pushed 'cm over the. edge of the
bank. Then she jumped on my
wheel, and 1 grabbed up her paintbox and ran after her. I waited,
though, long enough to see that they
Rugglcs described his interview
of the early afternoon. There came
a- deep flush into Ruth's soft checks
as she listened; her dark-blue eyes
grew almost black,- and she bit her
full under lip.,- His simple narrative
finished, Ruggles looked questioniug-
ly at her.
"Do you think it was all, my fault.
Miss Downing?" hc asked." '*
Rulli shook 'her head.    "No,"  shc
answered.   t      "1    don't    think    you
wcrc in any way loVjlamc."
- /'Then  what do you  think I  ought
to do?" he asked. '    " .V
"That depends," Ruth- answered.
"Arc you very fond of her?"
"Yes," Rugglcs answered frankly.
"I think a lot of her. You sec, I've
got to know her pretty well, and I'm
satisfied that .' shcvdon't understand.
She's a mighty nice girl and hasn't
got ji mean streak in her."
"You're in love with her, I suppose,",said Rulh, not as one who-asks
a question, but as if- merely stating
a foregone conclusion.
Ruggles' sat bolt uptight and his
eyes grew very round.
"In love with- ,hcr!" hc gasped.
"Why���no���nothing of thc sort. I've
never for "a <sccond thought that way
about Darthea. Why���it's ridiculous!
I guess I've given you a wrong idea
about thc business, Miss Downing. T
just liked her au awful lot and admired her looks and her' talent. < She's
painting -a picture for the. Salon right
now:'a dandy picture of an old mill
on thc Marne. But I never thought
about being in love with her���Gee!"
^ "Did you ever think about her being in love with-you?" asked'Ruth.
Rugglcs stared. "Her "in love with
mc! Say, you're trying to -kid me,
Miss Downing." - His voice', held a
note of reproof.
"I'm doing nothing of' the sort!"
said Ruth, ciisply. "I'm not that soit.
What I'm trying to find -. t, in order"!
to help you as much as I can, is
why you should both be so cut about
this thing unfes you're in love, with
each other."
"Oh, 'I beg your pardon", tMiss
Downing. I see what you mean."
Rugglcs leaned forward in his chair,
regarding her intently. - "Well, it's
sort of like this. You see, I'm all
alone in the world, and sometin.es I
kind of miss what most oll'r people

Tratfe With
The Eskimo
Opportunity  For  Profitable Trading
Around The Shores Of
Hudson Bay
Manitobans must awake to the opportunity that will soon present itself for profitable* trading around thc
shores of Hudson Bay. Our American cousins arc showdng the way,
though thcy arc less conveniently
situated for this commerce than ourselves. Tlic American-Arctic Corporation, of New York, has bought
the' ex-yachtsFinback,_ a remarkably
fast, able, ketch-tigged craft, admirably fitted to navigate these northern waters, and has given command
to'Captain., George Comer, An experienced whaling captain of Ncw
Bedford, Mass.
Her: mission will be "lo visit the
Hudson Bay region, to barter with
Eskimos, and to serve as a base from
which the company plans to tap the
fur resources and mineral deposits of
j'thc far north, in a more thorough
way than has heretofore been possible." Scores of picture-reels covering American lifc :ind methods, street
scenes and manufacturing plants, arc
to be showii to create a-craving for
American products- and an interest
in American   lifc.
While-one is7 forced to admire the
enterprising spirit 'of these New
Yorkers, il is surely not unfriendly
to point out lhat Hudson/Bay should
bc our own piivate preserve, though
if we do not avail ourselves of the
time and opportunit}', of course, the
trade of that region will pass to
American hands. Fur, fishciies and
minerals await thc trader \\ho shall
go aftcr thcm, and by making Nelson
thc base port Manitoba merchants
would haye. :r "convenient* striking
point. The season of 1920 will sec
the "Finback" in thc bay; le- us hope
shc will often exchange signals with

The King And His Servants
Servants   Were  Guests  of  the   King
and Queen at a Garden
Party.
The servants of the royal household and their-wives and families
wcrc thc guests of the King and
Queen at a garden -party in Buckingham Palace on a recent afternoon.
Thc party was a "strictly private"
one. Thc palace police and thcir
families were invited, as well as all
thc workers in and about the royal
residence.  -,
The band of thc Royal Horse
Guards played during the afternoon,
and there were performances also by
thc Southern Syncopated Orchestra
from thc Philharmonic Hall aud a
negro jazz band. Thc jazz band
played in the amphitheatre formed
by thc bed of the palace lake, which
\vas drained early in the war to hamper the opciatious of enemy airmen.
Tea was scivcd in gieat marquees.
Tlic royal family joined thcir
guests in the gi omuls immediately after tea and, remained till thc end of
the programme, - which included a
Punch and Judy shc-w for the little
ones. This was enjoyed as much by
thc grown-ups as by thc children.
The King and Queen laughed'as heartily as  thc youngest of their guests.
Princess Mary joined in thc dancing of the chiidr.cn. The entertainment was timed to jast i��om_4 till
6.30 p.ni., but the youngsters were so
happy that thctinie was extended by
nearly an hour. The King and
Queen  chatted with  ail.
The Need ior Thrift
At the bottom of thc solution of
thc cost of living problem is willingness to work in the production of
essential things; lo go without for
a timc, if needs bc, the unessential
ones. A great deal would bc accomplished if every individual would take
counsel with himself, as hc would do
if wc were still at war, as to whether
he is contiibuting his share to production. Perhaps this is too much to
expect, human nature being what it
is. Hut, however much w'e may
theorize, and howevei far wc may

Grasshopper Eggs
In Sod Land
Are   But   Half   an 'Inch   Below   the
Surface
Different kinds 'of. grasshoppers
havc diffcrcnt^habits. .Thus the Lesser Migratory Locust deposits its;
eggs, largely, in stubble fields or in
moderately soft situations elsewhere.
It chooses, loo, thc small openings
surrounded by* herbage and. seldom
ki3'S eggs in the - centre of grass
clumps. The Pellucid or- Clear-
winged Locust, on the other hand,
avoids the cultivated fields for egg-
laying and selects instead the grass
lands round about. It also deposits
its eggs in the clumps of grass rather-than around, them.
Of the grass hoppers at present infesting Saskatchewan and Manitoba
fully 75 pcr cent, are of the Pellucid
kind and in consequence, thc same
percentage of eggs arc to be found
in the sod as compaicd with those
in ~ the stubble. To plough stubble
down deeply is. not difficult but' to
turn sod to the same depth is frequently impossible, and it is, there-.
fore, important that other means bc
employed for destroying the locust
eggs known to be' present in large
numbers.
Recent experiments ������.conducted' at
the 'Dominion Entomological ��� Laboratory, Trccsbank, Man., have shown
that locust eggs cannot survive exposure to thc sun for more than a
few days, even when encased in thc
usual pod or sack. Thc question of
thcir destruction is, therefore, simplified, and any method that will expose
thc egg masses to thc sun will destroy them. Thus disking, cultivating or harrowing will all bc useful
means 'of killing eggs, and we arc
strongly urging cvery farmer to cm-
ploy one of tUcSc methods ou all thc
dryer sodded areas of his farm or
roadside. Thc eggs arc but half an
inch below thc surface, and can,
therefore, bc easily exposed. Thcy
will bc wherever thc hoppcis were in

New Zealanc. ~.ucer Describes Them
As  Marvelously  Accurate
Wellington, New Zealand. ��� Ncw
Zealand's ���������brilliant soldier, Brigadier-
General Richardson, amazed the
members of the New Zealand Club
recently wdien hc described how marvelously accurate wcrc the British
forecasts iii 1912 of the world war.
General Richardson attended secret
and confidential lectures given to officers attending the Biitish staff
college. They wcrc told that as
soon as the Kiel Canal had been
deepened Germany would find some
pretext for war with France, probably in the autumn of 1914-or iii' thc
early spring of 1915. .The French
army would fall back, also the British army-if it was in France, and
Paris might be captured by thc Germans, but the fall of the capital would
not end the war. If Britain were to
maintain an army of 1,000,000 men
conscription would bc necessary.
The lecturer also stated that the

���had thinned down the "British fleet

What About The
Peace Palace
Napoleon Was Offered
An Air Service I
Campenas Drew Up Plans of Airship
to Accommodate 200 Persons
The great progress ma'dc in aviation during the last few years recalls
the fact that as long ago as in 1796
a Frenchman named Campenas drew
up plans, which he laid before Napoleon, for thc making of an aerial
ship to accommodate 200, persons,
and. which he claimed could be directed to any point of the compass.
The inventor's letter deserves rc-
pioduction: "I myself will bc your
pilot. You can thus without any danger hover above the fleets of'enemies
jealous of our happiness, and thunder
against them--like a new Jupiter,
merely by' throwing .perpendicular
downwards firebrands made of.a substance which will kindle only by thc
contact and percussion at the end of
its fall, but which will be impossible
to extinguish. Or, perhaps, you. will
think it moro prudent to begin at
once by forcing the British Cabinet
to capitulate, which you may easily
do as you have it your "power to set
fire to the city of London, or to any
of the maiitime towns of England."
Campenas assured Napoleon his airship could travel from Paris to London, destroy the place, and return
to Paris within twenty-four hours.
Napoleon refused to countenance
the scheme, however. And it is interesting to note in this regard, that
in-thc early days of the. war aeroplanes were used, both by the allies
and thc enemy, solely for scouting
purposes, and pilots of both sides exchanged greetings  when thcy , .'	
each other. It was not until a German pilot shot at a British that each
side look to arming thcir own crait,
and battles in thc air became inevitable.

League of Nations Appears to Have
Forgotten The Hague
People iu Holland, as well as elsewhere, arc wondering what is going
to become of thc Carnegie Peace Pah-
ace "at The Hague, a bit of propcrt}'
which seems rather oddly to havc
escaped consideration iu thc discussions at Paiis. The League of Nations appears to have forgotten The
Hague; at any rate,. thc covenant
makes no mention of the solemn conventions that brought its elaborate
peace machinery into existence, and
although later the interests most
closely involved did thcir best -to
have the league established where
stood already the Palace of Peace,
the league decided ou Switzerland,
and what is to happen to the palace
is food for conversation. It is not
quite cci tain who owns the land on
which the palace was built, but if
it is lhc ��iovcruuieiil of Holland,
there may eventually be advertised a
peace palace for sah- or to let." It

Mining Taxation
Writing to The Nelson News, J.
C Harris of New Denver says:
"After well over twenty years of
trial, we find that on an average
less than one per cent of the crown
granted Mineral claims of B. C.
are being worked and whole mining camps such as The Lardeau are
almost lying deserted. Look' at
Slocan City, with the price of
silver well over one hundred cents
an_ounces and then try and be
proud of the mineral act of British
Columbia. 'By their fruits ye shall
know them."
Some practical mining men have
been trying to get hold of mineral
claims near Silverton this last summer-there are well over four
hundred claims to choose from
(all lying idle of course), bufe fehey
could not make a deal. _ Some of
the owners could not be, found,
some wanted absurd prices, some
papers were lost. So Silverton
may join the defunct cities of the
Kootenay. We want the laws and
taxes arranged to wake tbe claim
owners up and not to eend them to
sleep.
Amongst the difficulties thafe the
prospector and mining- man encounters is the fact that very
many of the location posts and
surveyors' monuments have disappeared. Would it be too great a
hardship to make a man who holds
mining property look after snch
matters? Should a man be allowed to hold au nncrown-granted
claim indefinitely without ife being
surveyed so thafe its bounds may
be known?
A mineral claim whose owners
value afe fifty thousand dollars is
taxed just the same as one valued
at fifty dollars. Jusfc think of taxing lots on thejbesfe parfe of Baker
street at the same rate as lot."
away up beyond the tram lines. It
would be no more absurd.
"Why is it right to tax' fifty
thousand dollars' worfeh of agricultural land two thousand five
hundred.dollars per annum, if ife w
neglected and unimproved, and a
mineral "claim of equal valne and
eqntilly - neglected only thirteen
dollars and,twenty-five cents per
annum?"
It is reported that the Consolidated of Trail proposes to build
concentrators afe Kimberley and
Rossland
The Kimberley installation is
said feo contemplate a plant having
a capacity of 10,000 tons daily at
the outset and possibly the erection
of another unit of the same size,
which would make the total capacity 20,000 tons. If fehe latter capacity is provided the concentrator
would become fehe largest on the
continent. The nearest 'approach
is said'to be a plant in Utah which
has a capacity of -15,000 tons, although the several plants of the
Anaconda Copper Mining company
in Montana have a total capacity
of aboufe 15,000 tons.
Plans for fehe Rossland installation have been under consideration
for m<iny months. The capacity
considered afe fehe outset was 1,500
tons, but the quantity of low grade
ore to be dressed is said to warrant fehe nse of 5.000 ton plant.
The cost of a 1500 ton plant has
been estimated afe $100,000 to
8500,000.
The chief problem ^ at Rosbland
has been the source of water. The
city has first right to the supply,
bufe has been disposed to share ife
liberally wifeh the smelting company. The cost of providing
equipment for the movement of
water has been placed as high as
82,500,000, but ife is believed this
sum can be reduced greatly by the
erection of a dam on the mountain
near Rossland.
The proposed site of fehe Rossland concentrator is between the
War Eagle and tho Le Roi mines.
It is reported that ground for the
site was broken this week. The
sources of ore would be the Le Roi,
War Eagle and Center Star mines,
which are owned by the Consolidated company. In fehese properties are large bodies of low grade
copper-gold ore leffe when ore of a
higher grade - was removed. Preparations were in progress some
time ago, for the substitution oi
concrete for wood in the lining of
shafts on fehese properties in contemplation of an ore movement

One of the Greatest Helps to Good Telephone Service .
/  , Telephoning is regarded as so easy that many people do
not take the trouble to see that they telephone correctly.
One should speak directly into the instrument, with the lips
but a short distance away,. When that is done, the voice does
" not need to be loud, and moreover the person at the other end
can hear distinctly. .
' When children do so much telephoning,  it would be well
to instruct lhem-to telephone properly.
