Co-Operation in Industry
Although sharp differences of opinion may exist throughout Canada as
to the methods to bc employed to
promote the prosperity and development of industry iiv this Dominion,
people are a unit in desiring to sec
the natural resources of this country
developed to their fullest degree for
the usc and benefit of our own people and in order to enlarge thc export  trade of Canada.
No thinking man or woman is antagonistic to the building up of great
manufacturing industries in Canada;
on thc contrary, everybody welcomes
them, is anxious to sec them prosper,"
and is prepared to , do everything
within reason to assist their growth
in the common interests of all and
for the welfare of the Dominion.
Opinions may and do differ as to thc
policies and methods to be adopted to
that end, and these arc properly open
to debate, but it is almost universally
recognized and accepted that the primary mcans to be employed should bc
scientific and vigorous development of
Canada's latent wealth in natural resources of all kinds.
Manufacturers, workingmen and
consumers alike stand lo benefit
greatly through thc development for
use of those natural sources of wealth
with which the several provinces
abound. For example, it is a source
of national strength and of benefit to
all people that, as onc propagandist
for thc great manufacturing interests
recently pointed out, Canada should
have a great match-making industry.
Such an industry calls for thc use of
'many natuial products of Canada,
giyes employment to hundreds of men
and women, and to thc extent that
it supplies the home market and adds
to thc export trade of Canada, adds
to the national strength and financial
stability of the country. Our people
should welcome and support such industries.

labor dissatisfaction, because of "layoffs" at thc mines, and the operators
have had great difficulty in maintaining full and efficient staffs of workers.
Such a condition has also added to
the transportation problem, inasmuch
as thc eastbound coal movement from
the Alberta mines to Saskatchewan
and Manitoba has come at the samc
period of the ycar as thc heavy movement of grain from the pfSiriesto
thc head of thc lakes. In other words
thc two hc.-^'icst freight movements
have come together, and both havc
called for transportation in thc same
direction���from cast to west. If onc
moved west and the other cast, the
transportation problem would bc simple, but two heavy freight movements
in one direction, mcans a return of
long trains of empty cars the other
way, thus adding enormously to transportation costs which the people
have to pay.
Future provision must bc madc for
the transportation and storage of
Western coal during the summer
months beforc the grain movement
begins in the fall if dangers of grain
blockades or an acute coal shortage
in severe weather arc to be avoided.
It is too late to do much in this direction this year, but thc people can
help very materially and in a simple
and thoroughly practical manner by
buying thcir winter's requirements of
coal and taking delivery of it into
thcir cellars,���whicli arc the chief existing places of storage ��� now. A
heavy movement of coal in the West
during thc next six or eight weeks
will assist enormously in reducing the
costs, preventing grain blockades with
a bumper crop in prospect, providing
against a coal, shortage with its resultant inconvenience and suffering,
and largely solve thc big transportation problem which otherwise will
cripple this country during the coming fall and winter.
Birds That Cannot Fly
Wings of Barnyard Fowls Havc Become Useless for Flying
Why don't barnyard fowl fly? They
can make a fluttering pretence at
flight, it is true, but for real flying
their wings are useless. Barnyard
fowl havc lost the use of their wings
through neglecting to use them. They
have been valued for their eggs, and,
as a consequence, thcy havc been
well fed. Thus the necessity for flying from place to place in search of
food has not existed. They havc for
the samc reason been protected as
far as possible from attack by animals
and from other dangers that would
make flight, as a means of escape, a
necessity. In course of time, therefore, their wing? have become practically useless for purposes of flight.
The wings of barnyard fowl are gradually decreasing in size. It may be
in the course of timc their wings will
be nothing more than mere stumps,
and later still it is quite possible that
they will disappear altogether.

Sir Auckland Gcddes Presents Gift
From City of London
Great Britain docs not forget thosc
who prove themselves its friends in
the hour of need, Sir Auckland
Geddes, British ambassador to the
United States, told General Pershing,
in presenting him with a bejewelled
sword as a gift from the city of London. The presentation \vas made at
thc Britisii embassy.
Commenting on the celebration of
the independence of the United States
"wrung from an autocratic government by the spirit of individual freedom astir in many lands," Sir Auckland recalled that in those days,
"there wcrc many on both sides of
thc Atlantic Ocean wiio thought thc
action of thc framcrs of your constitution right.
"There is none now, I believe, on
either sidc of thc Atlantic," he said,
"who docs not think that they were
right. Though neither you nor wc arc
all of English stock, thc memories of
Runnymedc arc a possession of all
your people as thcy arc living memory and possession of all thc British
General Pershing accepted tlie
sword "in the namc of the men of thc
United States who, with thc.mcn of
Great Britain and the other allies,
combined the courage and skill that
brought a ncw victory to our race,
and to all these who seek justice and
liberty for mankind."

Farmers and Automobiles
Practically 50 percent of all the motorcars built are sold to farmers. Thc
sales of motor trucks to farmsr are
fast reaching that high mark, for the
trucks afford the means-to save money, not only in transporting farm products to market and getting better
prices, but in cutting down thc farmer's overhead expenses.
Cause of Asthma. No one can say
with certainty exactly what causes the
establishing of asthmatic conditions.
Dust from the street, from flowers,
from grain and various other irritants, may set up a trouble impossible
to irradicatc except through a sure
preparation such as Dr. J. D. Kcl-
log's Asthma Remedy. Uncertainty
may exist as to cause, but there can
be no uncertainty regarding a remedy
which has freed a generation of asthmatic victims from this scourge of
the bronchial tubes. It is sold everywhere.

I. Saul in-Pursuit of David (w. 1-3).
Ever since David, took his departure from Jonathan (ch. 20), when
that crowning act of friendship was
shown, Saul had been hunting him as
a wild animal. He now pursues him
with 3,000 chosen men. David flees
from place to place, hiding as an outlaw. Sometimes he is in the enemies'
country doing disreputable 4hings.
This is the period of his schooling
vvhich fitted him to be thc eminent
king that hcv\yas. It was a bitter
period in his life, .but God sent him
to this school and adapted the instruction to suit his needs. David never
could have been the broad man that
he was, had he not been prepared in
this crucible of bitter experience. His
wading deeply into trouble adapted
him to write psalms suited to all men,
in all ages,, and under all conditions,
His life swung through thc ark of
human experience, touches the highest point of fame and'dipping to the
depths of sorrow ancl shame. Then,
personally, hc learned many lessons,
among which may be mentioned:
1. .His own weakness. It was ncc-
'essary that hc bc humbled under the
sense of his infirmities. Unless a man
has learned this lesson, sudden clcva-
,tion to power will utterly ruin him.
2. His dependence upon God. David's many miraculous escapes caused
him to realize that thc Lord had redeemed him out of his adversity. His
hiding places in thc rocks gave him
much of his imagery for the psalms.
3. Pic learned the country and people over which hc was to rule. By
knowing thc grievous afflictions which
Saul had heaped upon the people he
could sympathize and remove^them.
4. He learned thc magnanimity of
self-control. This a man must know
beforc he can bc a true king. He that
-rulcth the spirit is better than hc that
taketh a city  (Prov. 16:32).
II. Saul in David's Hands (vv. 4-20).
1. David s.cnds out spies (v. 4).
This he did to find out as to whether
Saul was  come in vcry deed.
2. David at Saul's camp (vv. 5-11).
Hc took with him Ibishi and went in
thc night to where Saul was sleeping.
Abishi asked tb bc allowed lo kill
Saul, but David forbade him because
Saul was lhc Lord's anointed.   -
3. David takes Saul's spear aiid-his
cruse of water (vv. 12, 13). Once before at Engedi (ch. 24) David spared
Saul's life. Now again hc was at his
mercy. This he did thai hc might
show tangible evidence lo the king
that hc had no evil intent.
4. David taunts Aimer, thc king's
bodyguard (v\v 14-16.) ' l-Tc calls to
Abucr and taunts him for his list-
lessncss���his failure to watch ovcr thc
Lord's anointed, thc evidence -of
which is the cruse and thc spear in
his hands.
5. David reasons wilh Saul (vv.' 17-
20). When Saul recognized David's
voice, David began to reason with
hini, showing;,that.he. had np thing, but

Proof Contained in Original Documents  Dated April  1865
That a Swiss lieutenant 250 years
ago invented asphyxiatlirg gas for
.the French army, is'the claim advanced by the French press-supported by
historic documents, proving that so
far as war is concerned there'really
is nothing new under- the sun.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
contains the original" documents
dated April 1865, signed by Duprc,
French Consul at Geneva, attributing
the discovery to the Sieur'Dorsat of
Sie Valais, then serving the French
King at the Canton of Fribourg. According to Dorchat's claims, he was
able in four hours at a minimum expense, to prepare a liquid giving off
a gas so thick and of such disagreeable odor that it was impossible for
human beings to remain in its proximity.
The gas bomb is no new invention,
for Dorchat had perfected a method
of throwing containers from a cannon, even exceeding modern gas artists by devising a cartridge or tube
to bc fired from an ordinary army
pistol. Thc official records, however,
fail to show whether the great Louis
investigated Dorchat's discovery, but
military experts of today point out
that the letters were mentioned 14
years ago in a volume published by
the Swiss Consul in Belgium ^nd
probably prompted German exponents of frightfulness to investigate
the. possibilities of adopting gas in

Open Timber Exhibition
Canada Has Attractive   Display
Kensington ""     . .
Prince Arthur of Connaught, opened thc Empire Timber Exhibition at
Kensington, promoted .by the governmental department of overseas
trade with the object of bringing into-
more universal use the timber grown
in the Empire.
The promoters give a special word
of praise to the Canadian forestry
laboratories at Montreal. .Canada has
a fairly extensive, and well staged exhibit, and a few'Canadian firms have
individual displays.
The exhibifttm is of a purcly technical character, intended to attract
traders. The official catalogue which
contains a list of shippers, importers,
etc., will doubtless prove useful to
specialists in the timber industry.

In British Columbia, it is said that
there are millions of tons of black

been of little economic value because

He led the Indian across to.', the
cabin. The late afternoon sunlight
was streaming through the uncovered
window, caressing softly the. lined,
peaceful face of the old trapper who
lay asleep.
'For a long time the Algonquin
stood booking down, his facc showing
nothing" of the conflict in his hot
heart. Then he spoke:��� '"'
a"T1ic fires of thc forest blacken and
char what they destroj*but the,souls

Thc frost that chills the flowers to

a smile of peace. The Great Brother has brushed His hand across th��
facc of my brother and left it peaceful like -a wood-locked valley aftcr
the-rain and storm have gone. It is
well. -.Sagawa takes the cold hand
that fed.him, that saved him from
the current, in his." He lifted one
/of the dead man's hands and held it
in his own. His face was turned to
the;light. In it Dorkin,marked sorrow, nobility, purpose.
"Sagawa-goes soon," said the regal
Algonquin, "to track down the slayer
of his, friend and-brother. After the
tempest comes the summer sunlight
and the songs of wild-birds. After
Sagawa has found and slain the" slayer of his brother, the fed mists will
lifit from the trails] His white friend,
Dorkin, who leads the wild things by
his strange power, can never understand the.'heart''of the Algonquin.
Sagawa could not take the hand of
his aged brother, in that hunting-
ground beyond the golden bars, if,: he
left his .task undone,"
He folded the dead man's, hands
once more' on his lircast, and turned
to Dorkin.- -.'';.:;'..:
������'.' "My 'friend.-. of the Hardwoocls

like the mink of thc stream, the fisher
of the lake, and'the fox. oh the tim-
bcrland, he must, skulk and hide because he is a hunted thing, because
hc is.supposed to have broken the
laws of lhe white, man; it is well.-
Sagawa will some day prove his innocence. Now "he will :ip"cak' with a
trOc tongue to his.whitc friend and
warn him of a danger.
-"It,is that the lawless trappers of

have their noses pointed towards--the

Indian. "Sagawa's brother h_as heard;
and is grateful," lie said. "He wilt
.guard well. what.is his, but his heart'
is heavy because his brother lrii'ul

ask hinv if this must be." -.
The. Indian drew his .tall figure
erect. "The spirit of Sagawa's aged

.the shadows deepened, until with thej
fulncss_of  the night thcy swam  and
sang close down above the tree-tops.
From a near-by copse a whip-poor-
will whistled and night life awoke iri
the deep forest. A fox barked from
a far upland and -was answered by his
mate from another upland. From thc
marshlands of' Dagvvoo Valley, the
frogs-voiced' their gladness. An owl
hooted from the hardwoods; from thc
lake marshes came the soft quacks of

If you were .an eagle and were to
soar high over thc wood-crowned
Highlands of Northern Ontario, you
would.see swimming beneath you millions of acres of forest, dotted with
hundreds of deep, clear lakes. And as
you ascended so as to look down from
a-great altitude, this wilderness would
take on the form of a giant face with
two great lakes for eyes, a white,
curving river the grinning mouth,
while, protruding aggressively, you
would mark thc massive chin, shorn
clear of its heavy timber by the tools
of lumbermen and a second growth
of coniferous trees stubbling it like
a wiry beard. This would.be. Old
Creation .Hills. In the cleft of that
chin you would observe a few tiny,
white lumps, resting like a flock of
sheep after the inorning's feeding,
and as your eye followed the bare,
rocky strip of land that forms the
giant's throat, you might see something creeping like a tiny caterpillar
from forest' to forest. This would be
thc train ringing along the glimmering steel of the-new railroad; thosc
white dots' in the 'cleft of the rugged
chin   are  the  unpainlcd    houses    of
/Lookup Settlement.
Towards/Lookup Settlement, at the
close of a May day, drove a man in
a home-made contrivance, honored by
the   name   of  "democrat." ���   He   was
' tall and gaunt, with an old cap that
set jauntily on his carroty-colored
hair, and blue eyes that twinkled beneath their bushy brows. A reddish
goatee stood 6*Ut on his chin.like the
quills on a disturbed porcupine. He
drove a span of aged, sorrel horses:
that stumbled along-with heads low
down, as though they dozed as thcy
"walked.- He sat with one long arm
stretched along the back of his' seat,
and with face turned partly towards
-the other occupants of thc vehicle,
ari elderly man and a girl, just arrived
from the city.
"We're nigh home now," he informed them, twisting about to. grin
pleasantly at his passengers.
.U.Thc girl, laughed a. silvery littic
laugh, and threw back the wraps from
her throat "I'm-awfully hungry, Mr.
Washburn. Aren't you, uncle?" she
inquired", turning lo-thc white-haired
man beside her.      :

Back to the Land
Conditions Point to a  Long Period
Of Exceptional Opportunity
On the Land
Several times this year despatches
from Winnipeg havc reported an exodus of office workers ancl other
"white collar" breadwinners to farms.
Officials of the National Railway declare that 60 percent of the settlers
along their lines are bo/ok-kecpers,
craftsmen, shopkeepers, clerks, or
other urban workers who' ��nd they
cannot make ends meet in the city.
This is a healthy,and sensible movement, which is likely to be much cx-
tendcd_in-the next few years/for apparently it is on the land that the
greatest individual profits are to be
made. Urban industry was immensely expanded during the war, and when
thc shortage of commodities is further filled, is bound to experience
some contraction, while the demand
for foodstuffs is apparently unlimited.
The general conditions of distribution point to a long period of exceptional opportunity o,n the land. On
the farm, housing is,cheap. Food is
obtained at half thc city cost. More
farmers have automobiles than city
people. If the productive value of
farming and a city salaried position
bc compared, it will probably be
found that thc net gain from farming,
at the end. of the year is more than
any possible saving from the salary.
Exorbitant rentals and the high cost
of "good appearances" grind the salaried man into economic nothingness.
In thc West, transference to a farm
is not the upheaval it is in-the. East.
The use of tractors and"other machinery has revolutionized,farming there.
A big. crop will make the beginner.
About 25,000 western farmers/ spend
their winters in. California. The opportunity fo accumulate a small fortune, with foodstuffs at present prices
must be an cvd'r-pressing lure to the
small-salaried city office worker who
sees himself getting nowhe.rc.���Mail
and Empire.

Two Good Reasons
Why the People   of  Canada   Should
Eat? More Fish
Two good economical reasons why
you should eat more fish:
It is cheap and nutritious, and provides a thrifty meal.
One of Canada's greatest sources
of wealth is her fisheries, and you
help develop the industry by eating
fish, and also help to put Canada in
a.better financial position.
Probably you are not a-ffi^re how
little fish Canadian people use.
Great Britain is one of the greatest
fish/, consuming countries in the
world. During 1918. she had a per
capita consumption of 58 pounds,
and iu 1919, it is believed, this was
increased to 60 pounds. This means
that each individual consumed at
the rate of more than one pound per
In the United States last-year it is
estimated by officials at Washington
the pcr capita, consumption was 19
pounds. Although little reliance can
bc placed in this estimate, there is
no doubt but that the local consumption in the United States has increased greatly in recent years.
A few years ago the per Capita
consumption in Canada per annum
was a matter of ounces. -Through
the combined efforts of the Canada
Food Board'and the Fisheries branch
il is estimated that the local consumption at one time reached a point
equal to 45 pounds per, capita. During 1919 it is estimated that the per
capita consumption was somewhere
between 23 and 25 pounds per annum.
Canada is one o.{, the greatest, if
not the greatest fish producing countries of the world. Why have our
people so little faith in fish?.
Germany and Britain
Feelings Toward England .Have En-
tirely Altered Since the
When Germany has filled out her
enfeebled body again, young Frenchmen will do well to set their affairs
in order, for another war will be in
sight. In that war the Germans hope
that we shall not take part. They
bitterly regret now that they ever
forced a quarrel on us. They.hope
that "wc shall soon bc friends again.
This sounds extraordinary to us, but
it is easy for Germans to'- entertain
this hope, because they have no feeling of shame for anything that has
happened, and thcy simply do not
grasp the British attitude of mind on
this subject. "It's all ovcr now," they
say genially. Thcir feelings toward
England have" entirely altered since
the armistice. ^Thcrc is.no hatred of
Great Britain now; in its place there
is a strong sentiment of grudging, cn:
vibus admiration. But it is a base
kind of admiration. Founded,'moreover, on false conceptions. " Germans"
admire us because thcy believe we
have "wangled" everything our own
way." Thcy credit us with all their
own :sclf-secking,-.their reckless disregard of intcnationrj honesty. "The
inevitable'and often burdensome additions of-territory that havc come to
England as a result of the war appear
to thcm the fruits of deep-laid Mach-
ia'velian British scheming^ ��� li is really, amusing- to hear a. German's .acid
praise of. this fictitious -England .that
he "has evolved from his, own jaundiced imagination. - "   "

A Prize for Britain
The Largest and the Most Wonderful
Airship in the World
Some time-this week there will arrive in England from Germany Zep-
pelin.L-71, the largest and most wonderful airship in the world. Surrendered to Britain as part of the penalty
of defeat, it has been reported on
several occasions that this airship had
been so' effectually crippled by the
Germans that it would be impossible
to-.navigate- it. That would be quite
in keeping with the long* list of attempted evasions of peace terms of
which the foe has been guilty. But,
whatever the truth of that story, the
fact now is that the vessel is ready
to^fly to England, and will become a
part of the British aerial fleet, the
most modern in existence.
It is not improbable that the L-71
may be used in some of the contemplated flights to the more distant overseas Dominions. In navigable
weather conditions this would be an
easy feat for the craft, which has a
flying, radius of 12,000 miles. The
provision of proper landing stations
might be thc chief-obstacle to a tour
to Australasia via Canada, or a journey to India by way of Egypt. Plans
like these are talked of in Britain,
which is quite used to airships of the
latest kind, though the L-71 will be
a new wonder there, as it is twice
the size of the famous R-34' that flew
to. the United States and back with
ease last year. 'As an object lesson
for the Dominions in the possibilities
of aerial communication it would be
worth'while to spend some money in
visits of-the Great Zeppelin to Empire
countries. !
Such a tour would also include a
flight over the city of New York,1 for
the bombing of which the monster
airship was avowedly constructed.
London and other English cities
know what death and destruction the
smaller Zeppelins can inflict. New
Yorkers might at least guess what
would have happened to their city
had the L-71 been ready for action
before the war ended. Wrhether she
comes to this side of the ocean or
not it may be taken for granted that
Britain will put the surrendered aerial
masterpiece to good use of itself and
as an instrument of instruction for its
own aircraft designers and builders.���

Strangling the League
United States is Largely Responsible

Had the United States followed the
European   Allies   in   Ratifying   the
Treaty of Versailles it is reasonable,,
to suppose that by    this    tim,e    the
league of nations would have been on
its feet, and that much of the existing confusion would havc been pre-,
vented.   At present a rather common
American pose is one of indifference
to European affairs.    Neither this attitude  nor any other assumption   of

the United States is largely responsible for the existing difficulties and-

Carmi/Kelowna Road
One of the incidents of au American  hospital unit's minstrel  performance was a  poker game between  blackface   comedians   supposed to be on  duty in Eugland.
One glanced    confidently   at   his
three aces and announced-:
"Ah bets a pound."
Private Rastus grunted  and let
his   eye   rove    lovenly   over   his
beautiful lil' king full.
*'A pound, huh!" he. grunted
scornfully. "Nigger, Ah raises
you jest one ton!"
There were numerous Americans
in the audience and the laughter
was considerable. When it died
down a British 'Red Tab" leaned
over to an American officer in the
next seat and whispered:
"Very comical expressions���but,
I say, I don't just get his idea
about a 'ton.'    A ton of what?"
The world is cursed to day with
the temperamental match.
Formerly the match* was a big,
husky sliver of wood with a head
full of fire and brimstone. It was
a hair trigger match. One you
could strike anywhere and get results.
But matches today are different.
Thin, stunted, puny little things.
And so darned particular they
have to be scratched on their own
brand of sandpaper or they won't
light. You just have to coax them
aU the time. And tbeir heads fly
off on the slightest provocation.
Drat a match that has to be
wheedled into doing its duty anyhow.
Very little has been said about
linking the Upper Okanagan with'
the Boundary. This could be ac��
complished by putting in repair the
greater part of the road between
Carmi and Kelowna. At present
the only part of thiB road that
autos can travel is between Kelowna and McCulloch, as the government some years ago done Bome
work on that course. This year
about- $600 is being spent on the
section between Carmi and Lakevale. The work under way will
enable wagons to be taken between
these points, but the stumps in the
road would not be conductive to
comfort for motorists.
A move should be made before
the next sitting of the Legislature
in having this matter looked into.
Some years ago a road was built
. from Carmi to McCulloch, which
was used for the convenience of the
railway /contractors when the
K. V. R. was under construction.
Apart from what work is now being done, the road was ilet go into
disrepair. This, old road could be
used as a guide. . The- route is a
good, one and the bed- of.a satisfactory nature. In. the event of
this;work being done, at would
open up a large area of the best
. farming land, - besides making a
delightful'highway foi- tourists going from the Boundary, country, to
the "Upper Okanagan.    >. .        X
