Most of the mineral claims have
been held by people "who were
foreign to the district, probably on
a' speculative basis, and considerable difficulty has been experienced
in obtaining favorable leasee on
these properties, the amount of
royalty expected by the owner from
the operator, from 15 to 20 per
cent of the smelter returns, being
a heavy handicap to a practical
miner of small capital.
The Taxation Act of 1916, haB
cleared this difficulty�� with a consequent result that many of the
mining properties have reverted to
the crown. Experienced mining
men have seized this opportunity
to lease fchese mines from the government, the government office at
Greenwood having granted leases
to some forty applicants. Most of
the applicants are local mining men
who no donbt are acquainted with
the mineral value of"the claims
leased. Should a measure of sue-
cees attend these new develop-
ments^Greenwood may again resume its position as one of the
principal shippers of ore in the
Boundary district.
The following are some of the
claims leased by the Government:

How to Succeed
C. F. Higham, member of British parliament, says that every
healthy man is a potential earner
of ��50,000 a year. Then he tells
how to go about it. Maybe he is
"spoofing" us.
"The secret is Jo get othere to
work out your ideas," he says.
"And to have the courage of yonr
convictions; to say 'yes' and 'no'
and stick to it.' Don't be too tired
to get up when Opportunity knocks
at your door. Have an infinite
capacity for taking pains. Be
ready for any question���for an
emergency. Look and acfe prosperous. Be an optimist Pessimists do nofe gefe. far. - Be kind.
Be courteous���it's the cheapest
thing in the world.- Never break
your word. Business men are
looking for reliable men. Fire
yourself from the job thafe doesn't
make you happy. Take chances if
you want big, chances.' Have faith
in yourself."
There, that's how to earn ��50,-
000 a year. Take of your coat and
go to work! Wonder if Higham is
earning that much or only telling
the rest of ns how.

Britain���The World's Terminal
hi his review of Great Uritaiu's industrial unci financial future, to which
certain references were made in this
column lust week, Lord Northcliffc
not only told -his American intciv
viewer ot th.e ability being displayed
in reforming the status of thc industrial workers, and gave reasons why
ncithcr the United Statcs nor any
other country could succeed in taking
away from Britain her supremacy in
shipping, but he  submitted a logical
reason why England would continue
to bc thc centre of world trade and
finance. In this connection he said:
"Americans who come to London
arrive here not realizing that our
small country, which you can almost
put inside tlie state of Ncw York; is
merely the great terminal of nearly
a hundred diverse sections comprising thc British J.uupirc. That Empire is roughly divided into half a
dozen free nations, quite independent
of England,���thc great collecting and
distributing centre of the whole,���if
they choose to bc independent. If
Canada, or Australia, or Ncw Zealand
wish to cut thc connection tomorrow,
they can do so without leaving any
bad feeling behind. Sometimes there
is ruffled talk between us, as there
is between, any other great business,
but when it comes to what I understand you call a 'showdown,' it is seen
that thc business nlliar.ee is of thc
strongest. .      - -  ,.    y .

worthy of note, aud a source of British confidence in thc future, that this
3-ear Great Britain will be ?blc to provide all national expenditures out of
current taxation aud still be able to
make a substantial reduction in thc
war debt.
Concluding his statement of the
British position, Lord Northcliffc
made reference to a well-known characteristic of thc British race. lie
said: "Wc have many faults as a people. Thc French say that we havc
thc faculty of putting our worst foot
foremost. Wc are bad advertisers.
We always like to grumble. It amuses
one to notice how violently we grumble at a small'business .loss and how
quietly wc pocket a gigantic business
achievement. Wc arc not good 'boosters'; but I do happen to understand
something about propaganda, and
having the opportunity of speaking to
a great body of business men through
thc Wall Street Journal, 1 would ask
the .many business friends I have
made at business conventions in thc
United Statcs to apply a large amount
of salt to any dish served up by young
and inexperienced cable correspondents v/ho blow into London, and, because thcy find an absence of thc
noise and rush to which they are accustomed at home, fail to realize that
Mr. John Bull is back at his old stand
and is about to give you a thoroughly
busy timc in many markets that you
will find arc not such easily cut lemons as some of your enthusiasts believe."
All of which should help to dissipate from the minds of Canadians, fed
up with articles iu thc United States
newspaper aud magazine press, any
fear that Great Britain is in danger
of losing her old-time position as leader iu thc world of finance, shipping,
manufacturing and commerce.

Irrigation District
For Saskatchewan
Act Passed Respecting Irrigation in
the Province
Among thc acts which wcrc passed
at the last session of thc provincial
legislature of Saskatchewan, which
has just prorogued, is one respecting
irrigation in the province. This act
provided for U,c formation of irrigation districts, which will be composed of a parcel or parcels of laud
on which auy dike, dam, weir, floodgate, breakwater, drain, ditch, basin,
reservoir, canal, tunnel, bridge, culvert, crib, embankment, hcadwork,
flume, aqueduct, pipe, pump or any
other contrivance for carrying or conducting water can   bc  erected.
The first procedure to form an irrigation district wiii be to forward a
petition to the Minister of Highways
for Saskatchewan. This petition must
bc signed by a majority of the land
owners of thc district who own morc j
Water Development
Scheme Considered
Project to  Utilize  South  Saskatchewan River Supply
With the object of inquiring into
the proposal to develop a water supply from the South Saskatchewan
River lo serve the area lying between
the river and thc cities of Regina and
Moose Jaw, and including those cities,
the Saskatchewan Government has
brought in a bill in the legislature to
appoint a commission of three members, of which Major A. McPherson,
consulting" engineer to the Local Government Board, is chairman. This i
commission is charged with the duties
of making a survey of the whole problem from an engineering and financial
viewpoint, and must also inquire into
thc water rights granted by thc Dominion Government to irrigation companies and others in Alberta where
the headquarters of thc Saskatchewan
River are situated.
It has been claimed that should
companies which havc been granted
water rights exercise their privileges
in full, there would bc no water in
thc bed of the South Saskatchewan
by the time Saswatchewan was reached. ... The commission is also directed
to negotiate with the Dominion Gov-
than half the land, to bc included in |crnn,cnt  in   regard   lo  this  situation,
the irrigation district. The petition
must further be accompanied by a
bond, and a report from a qualified
engineer showing the feasibility of
operating the proposed irrigation district.       Following  the  publication of  If lhc plan  ls aPProvcd' thcn �� votc
ancl wdien all particulars required in
connection with enabling thc legislature to reach a decision regarding thc
water scheme have been secured,' to
report to thc Provincial Government.
Big" Asbestos Order
France, to Purchase' Materials to
Value of $1,250,000 in the
Arrangements have been made by
which Canadian firms will furnish
$1,250,000 worth of asbestos roofing
for use in thc North oi France.
The credits wcrc on the usual basis by which the French Government
issues bonds ancl of these the Canadian manufacturer or shipper takes
three-eighths, while the Government,
through thc Government commission,
takes  five-eighths.
Asbestos roofing, being manufactured from Canadian asbestos and
Canadian cement, is classed as onc

Saskatchewan Reserves Rights Over
the Railways   '���
In    future,   railways    which    build
branch lines in Saskatchewan will bc
restricted somewhat in "their location
of townsites by  the Town  Planning
Act, which received its second reading in  thc legislature.    Hon. George
Langley,  in  charge  of the bill,  said
that it had been a misfortune in the
past    that    railway    companies    had
shown  themselves selfish  and erratic
in their choice of townsite locations.
In some cases they had crossed highways   which   had   been   improved   at
great expense and located thc town-
site   some   miles   away   from    such
[roads, thus rendering them almost" a
j waste of money.   This would not be
,'permitted in future, as thc bill gave
'��� thc  government power  to deal with
Ithc location of ncw townsites.

Parole System Praised
No Such Thing as the Criminal Type,
In the Opinion of Experts
Judge W. -P. Archibald, Dominion

in- the course of which he declared
that'.the criminal could not be looked

dairy commissioner for Saskatchewan, stated that five .new creameries
wcrc opened during thc season of
1919, making, a total of 43 in operation in the province. Final figures
of output have not been received -in
all cases, but reports which are apparently correct show thc creamery
output for thc year to be 6.598,000
pounds. This "is au increase of 1,-
592,014 pounds, or 31.73 per cent, over
1918. The total value' of thc dairy
products of the province" for 1919 was
$16,769,000, which is an increase ot
more than $3,000,000 over thc previous ycar.
L. A. Gibson, dairy commissioner
for Manitoba, expressed amazement
at the growth in dairying since thc
early days of thc N.W.T, Moose
Jaw, hc said, had thc first'creamery iu
1896, when 72,589 pounds of butter
were made. Prince Albert, had a
creamery then also, and Indian Head,
but the combined output was only
132,000 pounds, which sold at an average-price -of 18.57 cents. C. P.
Marker, dairy commissioner for Alberta, spoke of the forward movement toward better-bred stock.
J. A. Ruddick, Dominion dairy cqnt-
inissioner, spoke on the development
of thc produce business in the West,
saying that production of creamery
butler ���in Saskatchewan had reached
a point where an export market.was
needed. Thc total value of milk products in Canada, he said, was $250,-
000,000, of which $65,000,000 would be
cxnorled. .

O.vercrowded Warsaw
Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is
probably onc of thc most densely
populated cities in thc world. Its
growth in area has been retarded by
the fact that under the Russian' regime, certain fixed city limits were
drawn many years ago, and for military reasons no houses were to be
built outside of--these limits. In a
recent census it was found that the
number of_Jnhahitants in a building
in Warsaw was about ^seventy, as
compared with only seven or eight
in London.    ���

Thc old lady was pretty cattish at

back in his chair gripping Jts ample

while a frown, or rather a deep groove
which betokened an intensity of

pale from occasional periods-of physical pain whicli came from time to

II. Seemly Behavior of Christians
(vv. 11-25).
1. As pilgrims and sojourners (vv.
11, 12). Christians are merely sojourners on the earth; they are journeying through it on their way to the
eternal home in the heavens. Our
heavenly citizenship (Phil. 3:20)
should-^constrain us to (1) abstain
from fleshly Justs (v. 11). The term
"lusts" includes thc entire army of
unclean forces springing from our
carnal natures; they are enumerated
in Galatians^5:19-21. These war
against the soul. (2) Behavior honest before the heathen (v. 12). Christians should so live that it will bc
impossible for the world to speak
against them as evildoers.
2. As citizens (vv. 13-17). While
the Christian's true- citizenship is in
heaven, he has a responsibility as a
citizen on the earth. A Christian man
recognizes the necessity of social order, and will not only graciously submit to the authority of rulers regaid-
less of the form of government, but
will faithfully perform his obligations as a citizen. This he wilt not
do through cringing fear, but as thc
Lord's free man. By this free submission as a servant of God he puts
to silence the ignorance of foolish
men (vv. 15, 16). (1) Honor all. men
(v. 17). Hc will sec iu evcry man
the image of God and therefore give
honor to him. (2) Love thc brotherhood (v. 17). The Christian has a
peculiar love for those who are of thc
samc household. (3) Fear God (v.
7). (4) Honor thc king (v. 17). This
has peculiar significance, for in all
probability-the-wicked Nero was 'the
king then reigning.
3. As servants (vv. 18-25). While
doubtless slaves were meant here, the
principle applies to all who have relation lo employers. 'The Christian
will bc in subjection to his master.
Hc will not only do this when his
cmployci is gentle and reasonable,
but even when it means wrongful suffering. It mcans not only submission
but-loyalty. It is the duty of a Chiis-
tiau to consider and further thc interests of his employer. Many times
to do so means hardship and suffering. The grand example of suftcr-
iug wrongfully is Jesus Christ. While
his suffering is an example to us, it
was much more, because he suffered

Future Marvels
Matters Not Beyond the Bounds of

Sir Oliver Lodge made thc prophecy that while he did not know .whether- thc utilization of atomic energy
"would comc tomorrow or would take
a century," he did not believe "that
our descendants would be consuming
stored material, such as coal, using
chemical energy and burning up air
when thcy wish to drive machinery.
They would instead bc taking the energy out of an ounce or two of matter instead of out of a thousand tons
of coal." It is prophecies like this
which give hope lo the working physicist, and that propellers with three
thousand times the efficiency of existing mechanisms are possible, or that
the air may do unprecedented work
along little-suspected lines are matters not beyond the bounds of immediate possibility. These speculations
cause a thrill as a new year and a
new epoch open.���Philadelphia Public

Letter of Appreciation
The Boundary Branch of the

letter to the Boundary Womens'
Dear Mrs. Whson,
At the last meeting of the Boundary Branch of the G. W. V. A. a resolution was passed thanking the Womens'
Institute for their kindly gift of $20 and
at the same time I was instructed to ac
knowledge the donation and to assure
you that this kind thoughtfulness is appreciated.
As some of the aims and objects of
our association is to perpetuate the close
and kindly ties of mutual service; to
maintain proper standards of dignity and
honor between all returned soldiers: to
preserve the memory of those who died
and suffered for the nation; to constantly inculcate loyalty to Canada and
the Empire and unstinted service in their
interests; to impress upon its members
that they are to continue in its service to
Canada as cit'zens, the same spirit of
sacrifice arid loyalty whicli they have
shown to Canada atid the Empire as
soldiers, you will therefore probably be
interested to know that the money will
be spent in not only making our -hall
more comfortable but in erecting some
kind of a monument to those of our comrades of this district who fell iir a just
cause. , . '
Yours sincerely,
