Apple pie season is here, The
woman who invented apple pie
did much for the world, perhaps
more than, the men did who won
the battle of Hastings, and thus
brought the French element into
the Anglo-Saxon race, the greatest race the world has ever
known. The apple pie Ogives a
man a sense of smooth fullness
after a hearty dinner, such as
nothing else can. do and brings
his digestive organs into smiling
concord with each other. And
harmonious digestion is badly
needed-by; the-world -just- now,
when there are so many things to
wrath the brain and try the
nerves and stop the wheels of
progress. So the app'le pie and
the woman who makes it has our
approval and our blessing, which
is worth something. The harvest apple when it is green makes
lovely apple pie, but it must be
taken when it is full grown but
not ripe.';' V ;'...-".;. '.-.7   .-77 XX.

Mining Notes
A deal is pending on the Rambler
at Beaverdell. This has the reputation of being an excellent mine.
Joe Cunningham and John Mc-
Kellar have commenced operations
on the Bounty Fraction at Beaverdell.
J. O. Bazard, of Spokane, and
Mr. Richfield, who has been operating the Second Relief mine at
Ymir, were looking over some
mining property in this section
last Thursday. In company with
R. Lee and J. A. Eraser they were
shown over the Combination mine
and Spotted Horse mineral claim.
The visiting mining men were well
pleased with the showing at both
the properties.
A trial shipment of 5 or 6 tons
of ore was made this week from
the Combination mine to the Trail
smelter. Work is goiDg on steadily at this mine and ore is being
extracted. Ore houses are under
construction and other improvements being made. It is the intention of the management to extend the tnnnel 100 feet to tap the
main lead. The ore sorter has
found free gold and native silver
in the ore at tbe mine.
The Vancouver Sun says: "Recent development in the neighborhood of Greenwood have attracted
the attention of capitalists to this
old district. W. H. North,'general manager for the Standard
Silver-Lead Company, whichv is
developing the Iva Fern and McAllister mineB in West Kootenay,
has examined and sampled several
properties in the Greenwood district in the interests of his company. The Providence- mine at
Greenwood is '.beiij^ pimped^put
preparatory" to the1 starting of mining operations.' This property has
been a splendid producer, thegrade1
of the ore being unusually nigh,
but in tbe slump of 1920 its owners
became involved financially, and
early in this year the mine was
sold at a sheriff's sale. At one
time an offer of a million dollars
was made and refused for the mine.
A. company, to be known as the
Mary Agnes Mining company, is
being organized to operate it."
Standard No, 2 Bonded
W. H. Rambo, of Beaverdell, ""
has lately bonded the Standard
No. 2 Fractional Mineral claim, on
Wallace Mountain, to J. Acom, of
Spokane, the consideration being
$15,000 with $1000 paid in cash.
The claim is to be worked continuously with at least three men and
it is the intention of the new owner
to install'a 2-drill compressor at an
early date. Mr. Rambo hae
absolute faith in the merits of the
claim and asks no further cash
payment until the end of the three
year term, but requires 10% royalty
on all ore less than $200 per ton
and 15% over that  amount.
This is the first option we have
noticed in which no cash payment,
other than the initial payment of
81000 and the royalties from the
proceeds of the ore, is asked before
the end of the agreed term. We
believe this to be an excellent type
of option and one which we trust
will be followed by other mine
owners who have promising claimi.
This claim was lately under
option by Mr. Nordman and others
when good ore was shipped.

These laboratories are maintained
for the purpose of conducting   experimental tests to determine methods of treatment for  the recovery

mine operator aud large commercial
enterprises; in fact to all connected
with the mineral industry.   They
are not maintained for the purpose
of. assaying rock, as the ore before
shipment must be certified ,by  the

The Use of Slang
men were u more dashing picturesque lot than they are today. Mr.
Grosvenor ,StoneJ:ii]��l,crwj;iling in the
New Vork Central Lines magazine, lias
some amusing things to say about
them.
Although'there was no prescribed
uniform worn in those days, there
.seemed to be an unwritten law that a
passenger brakeman should wear a
black oilcloth cap and trousers skin
tight from hips to knees heavily corded on the leg seams expanding into
beautiful bell-mouthed bottoms that
nearly covered the shoes, a waistcoat
of heavy material with flaps on each
pocket, and a short, tight-fitting coat
like a peajacket of the same material
as the waistcoat. As a rule his shoes
or boots were uncomfortably tight,
high-heeled and liad soles of astonishing thickness. When with shoes polished   with   mirror-like resplendency
trade is almost, one-quarter that of the
United States. In a word we tire per
capita the largest foreign traders in
the world. That does not look as if
we are headed straight for the pawnbrokers.
A quarter century ago the investment of foreign capital other than
! British in this country was practically
nil. Today it is estimated that United States capital invested jn Canadian
enterprises and in Canadian securities
amounts to $2,500,000,000, or almost as
much as the total investment of British capital in this country. Statistics recently issued by the Canadian
Pacific Railway indicates that United
States  investors  now  hold  $7071,000,-

Kegiment, Lt.-Col. "Webb said one of'
the ���things which struck him most was
the intense patriotism of the people.
".Everywhere nnil in every tiling the
people stand by the Mother Country.
Their devotion is really touching; so
is their hospitality. In our case it
was unbounded and we came back
with warm gratitude for tlie kindness
shown us."   "W ���

Influence of Ideas on World Cannot be
Calculated
There is one human brain that has
a hard cash market value today, in the
business and industrial world, of $15,-
000,000,000.- ' Billions is correct, not
millions. That is within 20 per cent,
of equaling the value of all the gold
dug from the mines of the earth sin
America was discovered.
The brain is that of Thomas Alva
Edison, who many a time has said
to his cronies, "Weil, if worse comes
to worst, I've got a good trade. 1
can always make $75 a month as a
telegraph operator and I can live
comfortably on that."
The $15,000,000,000 represents the
present Investment in America alone
in industries whicli arc entirely based
on the Inventions of Edison or which
have been materially stimulated by his
inventions. Several of the country's
largest industries are included.
All in all, Edison has taken out more
patents than any other Individual. In
"Edison. His Life and Inventions,"
.by Frank L. Dyer and Thomas C. Martin, a list of more than a thousand
patents, complete to 1909, covers
twenty-seven pages, aside from 1,239
foreign patents. By 1917, tho total
had passed the 1,500 mark even
though in late years Edison devoted
himself chiefly to perfecting his work

Everyone Should Take Time Each Day
To Read
"Don't let your mind get the habit
of loafling." This should be tho
motto of every housewife. In these
days of helpful household appliances
the. housekeeper has more time for
outside things. Don't waste that
time. Women in business have to
be alert to command good salaries.
They haye to know what is going on
in Hhe business and political world,
and In most lines of work it is advisable that they have a certain amount
of literary knowledge, too. In-tlie
home one is not brought so much in
contact, with business people and one
may easily become rusty. Don't let
yourself degenerate into the kind ot
woman whose sole topics of conversation are household . affairs and gossip. Bead, get out. with people who
think in a- big way and do" helpful
things. Take time to read, if it is
pnly -for-a .few minutes " each day.

Would Take a Lifetime to'Study Great
Variety
The fauna of Western Australia is
so diversified that a lifetime of study
can give but an imperfect idea of it,
declares Sydney II. Wright, in Chamber's    Journal.     The    kangaroo,    so
widely known,  hops about amid  tho
trees  and  palms,  picturesque in  appearance and its flesh famed as the
venison of Australia.     Tho emu, six
to seven feet tall, is a bird that never
flies, though it may run with the speed
of the fastest horse.     There are two
species of crocodiles in the extreme
north, seals abound in the south, and
turtles   aro   fairly   abundant on the
northwest coast.      Many marsupials,
smaller than the kangaroo, infest, the
thickets.    The native cat, a handsome
little marsupial, half as large as tho
ordinary tabby, is spotted, very fierce
when captured, and a great nuisance
on account of rob'bing hens' nests and
destroying chickens.   The banded ant-
eater is a squirrel-like marsupial, remarkable for having 52 or 56 teeth.
)The pest of the country is the dingo,
or native dog, which Is cunning, shy
and savage", and a dreaded destroyer
of sheep.   The night howling of packs
.of dingoes is one of the strangest, and
most hideous sounds of tho bush.     In
the extreme north thc variety of birds
is    great    and    Includes    pheasants;
pigeons,   parrots,    cockatoos,   doves,
geese, ducks, quail, .and   a    host   ot
others���all     songless.     The     native
companion, tho dancing bird of Australia, curiously collects in groups to
go through a ridiculous quadrille-like
performance.      The  ground  is  alive
with" crawling   things,   the   tropical
snakes���not   dangerous���being .sometimes .14 feet long.
Admiral Comes From Arabia Word
Meaning "Lord of the Sea"
The origin of many sea terms is unknown to most people.. For instance,
lake the word admiral. Many of us
think of it as a purely English word.
Its origin, however, is "Emir of Bagh,"
Arabic for "Lord of the Sea."
"Captain" comes direct from the
Latin "caput," a head; while "mate"
is derived from the Icelandic-I'mati,"
whicli means a companion, or equal. V
At first the coxswain was the man
who pulled the after-oar of the cap-
Iain's boat, then known as a cock-boat.
"Cock-boat" is a corruption of coracle,
a small round boat used for fishing.
Commodore is from the Italian "com-
menratore," or commander, and naval
cadet was originally the French
"capdel," which has the samo origin
as captain.
We often hear "Davy Jones" mentioned, but there never was such a _
person. The "original term was
"Duffy Jones'* locker." Duffy is 'tho
West Indian term for spirit or ghost.--

"Resolved: That this conference
commend iho action of lhe Canada
Colonization Association in calling
such a conference; that this conference go on record as being in favor of
requesting the Employment Service of
Canada, assisted by the Canada Colon-
iztfiiou Association and other organizations represented at this confer-
ference, to utilize every available
method to bring employer and employees together; and. further, in view
of existing economic conditions, wo
emphasize the importance of having
as many as possible of those now on-
gaged in agricultural-pursuits, to continue at such, and that representatives
of all organizations here represented
and' aU'others interested .undertake lo
bring this resolution to the .attention
of their respective organizations and
to endeavor to secure their co-operation; that, a co-ordinating committee
be appointed, consisting of the Canada Colonization Association, the railways, the Federal . Department of
Labor and Immigration and the Canadian Council of Agriculture, to cooperate and assist iu this undertaking."
The fact, was early brought out that
a very large ..percentage of the'Britishers were married men, with wives
and families in England.. Many of
these, it was said, had been out of
work in the Old Country for a long
lime, and asked nothing belter than
that Uiey could procure woik during
the coining winter in Canada at a
wage which would permit of thoin
supporting their dependents at lionv,
and with ihe probable prospect of
bringing those dependents out hen- to
ioin tiiem in the very near future.
Charles F. lioland, jepreseniaUvo ol'
Uie Employers' Association ol Manitoba, suggested that the Governments
and railwsjvs, plan their V.rZt expenditures in a manner to permit as much
work as possible being done during ihe
winter, thus absorbing such of Ihoso
mon as could not support their wives
and families iu ihe Old Country on lli-f
wages that the fanners could afford
to pay. The tanners of the wefct,
it was thought, could absorb the remainder providing the men were
willing to work at a price (lie fanner
could afford 10 pay. ^

That I'll uever cease to love,

How oft beside its willow border
When my heart was sore opprest,

And listening, found rest

A rushing current aud a deep, still pool.

How like my life is the little river
As its plunging waters flow,
A tranquil place, then a wild,  swift  tor

So the decades coine and go.
And O, if upon the journey
From the mountains to the sea,
Might cheer some soul that is faint aud

How happy I should be.

Japanese Relief
The Canadian Red Cross Society
has been requested by the Dominion Government to make a nation
wide appeal for funds for Japanese
relief.
While full details are still lacking, it is evident that the catastrophe is without precedent in the
world's history, arid necessitates
united action aud help from the
National Red Cross Societies of
every country.
Premier Oliver has taken the
matter up on behalf of the people
of British Columbia, and the local
Government Agent, P. H. McCurrach, has been requested by him to
appeal for voluntary contributions
towards this object in the Greenwood Difetrict.
Many of our kith aud kin are
victims of the disaster ancl are
today homeless, desolate aud starving-
It ie hoped that the necessity in
this case will appeal to all those in
the Province who are able to give
anything to the Fuud, so that British Columbia will not bo found
wanting in sympathy aud assis
tance.
All who care to contribute should
forward their contributions to the
Government Agent, Court House,
Greenwood, who will forward them
to the Canadian Re J "Cross Society.
Acknowledgment   of    coutiibu
tions will be duly made.

Iu nearly all bird life the male
is more beautiful than females.
The martin with its glossy black
coat shading into bronze, has a
mate with a dark grey back.
Nature may have had a wise
thought in making this distinction. The male is a conspicious
object , the female in her hidden
nest escapes tbe sharp eyes of her
enemies. Take the oriole with
its orange wings. He could not
hide anywhere. To find his
sombre spouse on her ^nest^is a
task for an expert observer. These
nests are precious. They must
be hidden from catp, squirrels
and a' score or more of bird destroyers. But how do the birds
do their courting. It must be
that the male attracts the female
by his gorgeousness and she goes
to him. This is said to be true
in all walks of life. It is the
eternal female that does the
matchmaking and guides the
destines of the race.

Mountain-Climbing on Vancouver Island

..Vancouver  Island  is.becomihg  famous; lor  many
tilings,   Among -the- chief of these is its- climate, 7among.
the more utilitarian- its .'strawberries; and among the
tourist attractions'-its marvellous scenery, and magni-
Vficent'drives, its'many fascinating trips both hy boat and-'
.-.by.'rail--  But,.while tens, of.thousands of visitors holiday.
.in the/Island every summer, very lew of them/are aware
'���-'of-:the fact, that within, less than, a day's journey of
���Victoria there are mountain'peaks covered with perpetual
snow,'and.massive glaciers; which defy the-warmest.of
.. the summer sunshine,- where those who enjoy thatmost-

--' 7--'.The-most popular mountain from an Alpinist's point
. of view is Arrowsinith.   It is 'about six. thousand feet
.High," and to reach-it one, travels by one of the. most
- magnificent.scenic railways oh the continent".. There is a
diversity of country all along the hundred miles from
-Victoria to"'ParkesvilleV Pailcesville is on the- east
':��� coast of the Island, and- Victoria,'situated at the extreme
--'south of the Island'is the starting point for the'journey.
. One of the first summits to be crossed is that of the splendid Malahat, about. Sftee.n hundred feet above the sea.
.Here, from the "Lookout," one looks down' on'.a-wonder-
,' ful pn-noruma o'f green-embowered hills,,na'rrow'winding
. Waterways, .the. wide stretch, of .the. sea- itself and the
��� "Oiymptic 'mountains' on "the Mainland in their dazzling".
- dress of ice aiid-snow. After crossing." the Malahat. there
are miles -along- the" shores of the- salt water, 7 quick-
passages through picturesque villages and towns,-journeying:; among .sweet-scented woods which, are-always'gay
with flowers. ' ' ~ -V .. ��� 7.   .
At Parkesville the road divides one branch.swinging
toward the. west". An'd there begins the first trek-in the
journey.which, leads to the everlasting,jhills; As'one-
nears Cameron" Lake, whether" one travels"- by rail or
highway, one sees the beginning of the vast forest of
Douglas fir. than which tKer.eis ho finer stretch, of timber
,in America.
* Just across the lake from the Chalet one .begins the
ascent of Mount Arrdwsmith.
The particular day when we made the journey was
. in early June.  It was sweet and cool near the water, the
bracken  thrusting up branchy and  tall,  maidenhair
ferns just .Unfolding, all of the trees and shrubs wearing
their new dresses -of- fresh, young green.
We started at noon, and from the very outset, found
the trail fairly steep. With only. occasional stops for
breath, we pushed on. for five hours before we made the
Hut,, a distance of about .3000 feet up. It was rather
early in the year for mountaineering and the trail had
not been cleared since the winter storms, which made
.'���"���[-': .'..' - Just before the ends. "���--_'     ;.'-.
magnificence of scene that called forth exclamations of

" "The Hut was practically buried, Tor the snovf SayTdeep.
on the.upper reaches,. It took us ah hour ,or more to
tunnel into, it, for although our packer had gone ahead
with the blankets, he could not accomplish much.alone.
But we finally dug dur way in, cleared the snow from the
windows, made a fire, aiid before very long the aroma of-
boiling coffee and fried ham filled the little cabin, and we
sdt down to eat with ravenous appetites.

without danger for' the.unwary. We had, a few tumbles
and slides, which only added to the enjoyment, aiid wher' ;
we had pursued our journey to the.end our satisfactioi

the blue <>f the sky, we could glimpse a farther view, and
we said it was the sea and- the mountains beyond- the
sea, but the distance made it almost as V2gue as a half-

It is a journey that one can easily make within the   .
