My Garden
During the early hours of last
Thursday morning the ��� Govt.
.Liquor Store was raided by burglars and got away with about 35
cases of the very best whiskey.
Entrance was made- from the
rear and after prying off some
boards they broke open the .back
door and carried the wet goods to
the car. It is presumed that the
robbery was committed by some
bootleggers from the other side
and by people who are acquainted
with local conditions. No trace
of the robbers has been found.

The-Boy Scouts "are now fairly

Gray who donated the proceeds of

dance Miss McKinnel and Geo.
Clerf assisted. $48.50 -Was realized as a result of the show-and
dance. The Scouts desire . to

ssusic and tbe refreshments.
Good manners bring friends to
a boy at a time when be needs
them most, when he is making
his start in life. A boy who is
nice to his mother makes a good
impression upon lads who are
younger; and especially upon the
men of au older'generation, and
1 this impression helps a4ot ia the
early ventures of young manhood.
Most boysare nice to their fathers. This is not a question of
the heart so much as of the hand.
A broad hand is better than
anything else to guide the young
traveller past the turn in 'the
road where childhood and boyhood meet. This is the universal
experience of everybody. So the
boy is nice to his old dad aad
helps him over the rough places
as his limbs grow weak and his
steps slow. Good manners and a
gentle voice make the very
Angels smile as they fly past
bearing their messages of love.

Great    Cities    Found     In     Ruins    In
Chinese Turkestan
Tliere is a place iu Chinese Turkestan, called Lukchun, tliat is far below
the sea level. This forbidding region
is one of the most interesting in the
world. Everywhere in it are' found
ruins of human habitation. Great
ciiies are liere/'with their mines, farms
and industries, dead as though time
had stricken them as they stood.
When .Atlantis stood high the gulf
stream played on one side of it and
Arctic currents on the other, but
there was little' or no intermingling
of the waters. In consequence storms
as they passed here were deflected
down into Europe exactly as Alaskan
weather comes lo the United States.
But. the instant there was a gate by
which the Gulf Stream could enter the
Arctic Ocean all this was changed. A
great suction whirl was set-up which
lifted the storms from all surface contact with the >ocean and switched
them into the.upper air, to descend,
dry and thirsty, on Turkestan. .
<. There is . every reason to believe,
scientists say, that this is the true
explanation, I'or the sinking, of Atlantis and the North-Sea correspond
in time to the formation of the deserts

Predicts Prosperity  For Farmers
Profitable    Industry'  Established    By]
Farmer Near Maeleod j
i '
j    Goat statistics arc not to be found
\ in the livestock figures of the D'omin-
J ion of Canada as the raising of these
animals in Canada has never reached
a status warranting its inclusion. The
only province where goat raising has
become thoroughly established and
-where *��� it has arrived at undoubted
success is British Columbia. Here
there are approximately 5,000 of these
animals, whi��h have increased to
these proportions I'rom an original
herd of 200 head imported from the
United States in 1917, whilst a goat
breeders' association in the province
formed in the same year with a membership of 17G, now has more than -100
adherents. ���-.,.
With its ^favorable conditions in
many sections there seems no gbod
reason why the prairie provinces
should not have a flourishing goat industry, especially since this pursuit
has proved so profitable iu the province across the mountains. Alberta
has at length its pioneer in W. A.
Schroeder, wlio came from Switzerland and settled near Maeleod, and
has since been engaged In proving the
feasibility of the goat-breeding industry in Southern Alberta and the profit
to be found therein, which he would
seem to have done conclusively.
. He has cne hundred goats, and witii
this substantial herd is following
along the same principle of domestic
dairying thai have for generations
been so successful, in Switzerland. He
is making fifty pounds of buttei-'and
cheese every week, which he sends to
the Maeleod and Calgary markets,
where it sells on even terms with the
ordinary dairy brands. An advantage in this industry lies in the. claim
that one gallon of goat's milk will
make as much cheese as two gallons
of cow's.milk, and each animal averages a quart at a milking.
-Goats are easily raised in Alberta,
according to Mr. Schroeder, who first
experimented with sheep, especially
��� on. hilly. or broken land such as is
found in certain sections of the province. They are economical to keep
because they feed largely on brush
and weeds, the snow offering no deterrent to rustling, whilst they seldom
fall victims to coyotes. The meat of
the goat comes under the elites of wild
game, and from ten to twelve pounds
of tallow are produced from each car.-
cass. The "pelts when well "tanned
are waterproof and have a good commercial value. r'
Mr. Schroeder's experiments have
been watched with-a good deal of interest throughout - Alberta and his
present herd is'in"rather general dc-'
marid. for" foundation stock .for-other
herds.. Somc have gone as far north
as-the.Peace River country, where a

Britain Remits Indemnity.
Still Owes 50,000,000 On  Her Debt to
The British Government has, even
in the midst of meeting its stupendous
debts'lncurred "during the war, decided lo remit to thc Chinese what Is
slill due on account of the Boxer indemnity to Great Britain. The
amount is estimated at five times the
sum which America remitted���between two and three millions a year
for twenty-three years," a total of over
?50;000,000. According to a dispatch
in the Philadelphia Public Ledger, the
Japanese have now been infected by
tlte same generous- purpose. At any
rate,- a bill providing for the remittance of Japan's share has b.een-in-
troduced in thc Diet and its passage
is "virtually assured." The contemplated use to which tlie remitted fund
is lo be put is also educational.
it has been suggested'by those interested in the use of this money in a
way most beneficial to China that it
should be placed'in a great common
fund, to" be administered by a committee in which the, Chinese membership should be..dominant but which a
representation also of the Governments which have made these self-
sacrificing grants for the benefit of
the Chinese people. While every
safeguard should" be taken to insure
the most economical and profitable
expenditure of' the income from the
fund; it should be solely with the
thought of the good of the Chinese
themselves. " It is regrettable' that
the bill providing for.the remittance
of the rest of our share-was held up
in the Committee _on Foreign Re-
Jftlions'in the House at the last ses-'
sion after its passage by the Senate.
Our own earlier example, together
with the greater generosity of Great
Britain"-'and what will be probably a
slill greater sacrifice of Japan, should
lead to an early favorable action' by
the next Congress.���From -the Washington Star. ' -..   -    -

When you look at other people,.your
impression of them is governed very
largely by the expression that you- find
upon their faces. .
We commonly speak of 'Uhe...expression of the eyes," and we have so long
continued the use of-that phrase that
we really think the eyes have expression. Tlie eye proper has no expression, but tlie movement of the. eyeball and the opening and closing of.
tlie lids, is what make the so-called
expression of the eye. The upper lid
has only an up-and-down motion, so
that it could not bc very expressive;
but the" lower" lid can be moved up-
ward__and downward and can be pushed about by the muscles'of the face
so as to make a series of pleasant-
looking wrinkles about the corheiTOf
the eye. s    .. -'��� .'
More than seventy-five per cent, of
facial expression is due to the muscles
of mastication. These are supported upon the teeth and the bones surrounding .the teeth that depend for
their shape upon the stability of the
teeth. We.are safe therefore in saying that the great ���'- majority of all
facial expression, either pleasant'- or
otherwise, is due to the region that is
dependent for its support, and, c'on-
secjuentiy,- its appearance,- upon the
teeth.'     ;   . ../-���. ,..     ' ;.    '7
' In addition to the movement of the
inuscles of the face, the. appearance
of the teeth themselves.,..is a very..
large element of expression. If you
look at a mouth full of. clean, pearly,
ivell-shaped, healthy teeth/'surrpundfid
by natural pink gums, you' get immediately a pleasing effect that is out
of ali proportion lo tiie general
beauty of tlie face. In fact, many
faces tliat are most unprepossessing
when in repose, -are extremely attractive when they -.smile, beca'tise'./pf a
splendid dental equipment.'. If a most
beautiful wojnan shows, when she
smiles, either an irregular, or a-"decayed, or a plained set of teeth, she
had better not, smile, because, her
reputation lor' beauty disappears at
the, first' glance.V - .,
V.If.a man .who. "wished to-talk,business: with you .was well-gro.omed arid
generally pleasing in appearance, and
yet, when.'he-opened his mouLh,- showed a-collection of dental'wrecks, he
would ^immediately- lose, the psychological; adyantago7.that,;h^ had gained
by his. first appearance. ,"./

Canada's First Railway Ticket
Sold When Northern Railway Opened"'
���  .,       Seventy Years Ago
Seventy years ago the fins.t railway
ticket   was   sold   in    Canada.'   The "
Nortliefn   Railway   was   opened   to
traflic,  the road  being  completed as
far as Aurora, a ^distance   of   thirty
miles .from Toronto.      Thousands of
persons witnessed the "send-off" but
very few passengers would risk their
lives ori the preposterous thing that
seemed to them on tlie point of exploding.     All along the way the road
was lined with<spectators, full of excitement  at  the   iron   horse   hauling .
along  at'the awful'  spetfd  of fifteen
miles an hour. - :   -
At Thornhill,"" about halflwayrto
Aurora, the ���wood and water 'were exhausted and' a new^supply was provided. The whole trip was made.in
two hours, but' as .no telegraphs were"

in suspense till the machine came
back, when'confidence Was" established in the newfangled horse.���Durham
