was the derailing by some "obstacle

loaded with beans. The cars were
wrecked,.and there was a veritable
mountain of beans on. the tracks

maintain a. force of 700,000 or
800,000 men for six months.. The
supply greatly, exceeded the local
demand at any rate, bot the.wrecking crew from North Bend made a
valiant effort to equalize this, so
that the market closed with beans
strong and active. "Beans was
bsans,". without any doubt, and,
fehey will appear pretty frequently
on North Bend menus, for some
time to come, in every disguise
known to the culinary artists.''

only 80 or 85 cents in the United
Statcs will, in itself, operate to discourage Canadian buying there, while
thc fact that our dollar will buy more
than a dollar's worth of goods in Great
Britain will encourage heavier purchases, there. This will help to right
exchange conditions between Canada
and the United States, and will also
i help thc Motherland. From the purcly Canadian standpoint, however, the
main thing is that our people should
produce in ever increasing volume
I those tilings which are in demand in
the United Statcs and which wc can
most easily and profitably export to
that country.

The Exctaige Problem
No onc question is commanding
such widespread interest in all countries as the problem of equalizing
rates of international exchange. It
is a problem which first engaged the
attention of financiers and governments.    Soon,  however, it  called for
arc urging adoption of a policy which
will have the effect of raising the
value of the Canadian dollar across
thc line back to par.
Canadians, however, should not depend on United Statcs action, but
should by hard work and unremitting
energy increase production in all
lines, and thereby enormously increase tlicir export trade to the United States, and thus offset their heavy
purchases of needed commodities
from that country. And the Ottawa

II. God's Manifestation of Love (vv,
9, 10).
God's method of making known his
love is through the incarnation���the
sending of his only begotten Son into
thc world to bc thc propitiation for
our sins (John 3:16). The coming of
Jesus Christ into thc world and his
taking on human nature makes possible life for those who receive him. If
we would know God's love, let us look
at Jesus Christ. Those wiio gaze upon him in reverent contemplation
cannot doubt  God's love..
III. Thc   Supreme   Motive   of   Love
(v. 11).
God's love is the grand incentive
prompting his children to love.
IV. Love the'Proof That God Dwells
. With Us (vv. .12-16).
1. No man hath seen God at any
time (v. 12), but there is abundant
proof of his being. The one unmistakable proof of his being is love in the
heart of man. Love is not native to
the human heart, for thc heart is deceitful above all things and desperately   wicked   (Jer.   17:9).     Out   of   the

To Protect Canadians
Holding Huh Insurance
Policies Not Cancelled by War/Says
Insurance policies issued by German companies before the war are
still good in Canada, and the Canadian government is prepared to protect Canadians who possess paid-up
insurance of this kind. The peace
treaty provides that the war did not
cancel such policies, most of which
are held in Canada by Italians, Norwegians and Russians.
Sums falling due during the war
on German policies are recoverable
with interest at five per cent, from
date thcy became due. .The government is anxious to learn at once how
much of this German insurance is held
in Canada.
Where enforcement of war measures prevented, policy-holders from
paying premiums, it is possible to
revive thc policy by payment of overdue premiums before April 10. The
fullest possible information should be
given in the notice sent to Ottawa.

day, however,- has apparently arrived
when getting 'into .communication

solar system is regarded as a reasonable undertaking by our scientists.
The, prize to be handled by thc French
Academy amounts to. the tidy sum of
100,000 francs, and the Academy evi-
jdcntly regards interplanetary communication as a possibility, as it has
always been its policy not to handle
prizes for any feat which it regarded
as a waste of time.     .
Wireless operators have recently
noted disturbances coming from somc
unaccountable source, and it has been
suggested that they are messages being sent to this earth from the planet
Mars, or from the planet Venus, and
these disturbances arc being carefully recorded in an effort to find out
if they show such a regularity as to
prove that they arc not accidents of
Nature, but an intelligent effort on
the part of some of the other planets
to "get in touch" with Earth.
We havc reached thc mental stage
when wc' can discuss inter-planetary
communication as a serious possibility without becoming excited about
it. So far as our capacity for, wonder
is concerned wc havc reached thc end;

of the French Academy preparing to

Great Britain's
Financial Strength
London Supplies Needs of Continent
of Europe
London.���Great Britain is fundamentally sound, both financially and
commercially, says the American
Chamber of Commerce of London in
a statement referring to difference in
the financial position of Great Britain and the continental European
countries. The chamber expresses
the belief that the recent unprecedented drop in Sterling exchange on the
United Statcs makes it particularly
desirable that thc opinions of each
side of the Atlantic concerning this
question should be understood on the
other side. Aftcr a thorough discussion with the leaders of British finance, illuminated largely by the addresses of thc chairmen of five leading British banks to thcir stockholders in annual meetings, the chamber
of commerce has prepared a message
to thc American business public. Thc
message reads as follows:
Thc collapse of the pound sterling
in New York is no index to Great
Britain's financial strength or weakness. London is today as before the
war, thc monetary centre of Europe.
Without adequate assistance from
American credit in Europe, Great
Britain has been forced to supply the
credit needs of the continent as Avell
as thosc of her own traders.
Dollar exchange is really New
York-Europe, not Ncw York-London
exchange. Great Britain is neither
bankrupt nor anywhere near it, although her external debt is1 larger
than ever before in her history. This
debt was incurred mainly to supply
the  needs  of her  continental   allies,

Separate Monarchies
Each Have Their Kings, Subject to
The British Crown
There are a number of diminutive,
waterrsurrounded monarchies off the
coast of Scotland. They each have
their titular kings, subject, however,
to the British Crown, and to the common law of the United Kingdom. One
of them is the Isle of Bute, in the
Firth of Clyde, which is owned by
the Marquis  of Bute.
The kingdom contains only fifty
square miles, but has a population of
11,000 people. There arc six lakes
within the island, the largest being
Loch Fad, which is about a quarter
of a mile wide and about nine times
that in length.
Arran is another of these kingdoms
in the same firth. The Marchioness
of Graham rules ovcr its 5,000 inhabitants. It is nineteen miles long and
ten miles broad. It was on this island
that Robert the Bruce is said to have
hidden in a cave for somc timc aud
there planned onc of his expeditions
to recover thc crown of Caledonia.
The ruins of a castle, once the home
of one of Scotland's kings, is on this
Thc largest of these island groups
is Lewis island, onc of the outer
Hebrides group, off the north-west
coast of Scotland. It covers an area
of nearly 700 square miles aud boasts
a population of 37,000 people. It has
splendid lochs, where splendid fishing
is to bc had and red deer still roam
over thc moors and forest land.
Modern legislation has placed the island under no moral or ceremonial
obligation to any titular overseer.

that of 1918. Thc amount expended
by municipalities during 1919 for
roads and bridges on which government percentage was paid is $629,588,

This is not thc peace whose hope
sustained us through the dark days

thought we were making then is still

animated by the ideal of common
good, we havc a world, partly distracted by the rivalry between the
fiercely opposing principles of constitutional progress and partisan tyranny, partly affecting an indifference
towards this issue which it cannot'
really feel, and indulging the old
hopes of political isolation lhat broke
down so completely during the war.

To the Unknown Scotchman
We write iu tribute to and in
remembrance of the Scotchman,
name and station in life unknown,
by natural disposition iu life a
volunteer, belonging to the army
of Scots who came from all over
the world, willingly, eagerly, without demand for payment, without
expectation of fame or reward, to
risk life that civilization might endure. In proportion to the number of Scotchmen in the world, that
race furnished in volunteers more
men than could be raised by Germany under the most drastic methods
of conscription. The war record
of the Scot is equal in brilliance
and endurance to a perfectly clear
and flawless diamond. For as
many centuries as history has
record of his doings, the Scotchman has clung to his own national
ideals, relationships and distinctive
religious beliefs. ���- When translated
into action under the stress of the
greatest possible human crisis, his
inherited traits have famished an
unforgetable demonstration, of
whole-hearted, fearless, efficient
fighting service.. In contemplation
of that service,, we are willing to
follow him in his. doctrine of predestination far enough to accord to
. him an unquestioned right to claim
for himself and his race that most
poetic of scriptural,promises. ','For
I ami persuaded that neither death,
. nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor-things tb
come, Nor height, nor depth, nor
any other creature, shall be.able to
~ separate, its "from theTid v.e~ of God,
which is . in JChristY Jeans our
Lord."���yancouver Sun...  ...     .

The Princeton Star says:
"Wednesday afternoon the body
of Duncan McRae was found near
the trail leading to the McRae
Brothers' mining camp ou Kennedy mountain, where it had lain
just a month to a day. Diligent
search had been made all over the
country. Wednesday, Chas. Bon-
mver and Gus (Belgie) Powels
were searching along the trail
and found the body. There was
a snowstorm in the hills that day
and the deceased had evidently

was 6S years of age, and was
born at Glencoe, West Middlesex,
Ontario. He came to British
Columbia 25 ycars ago, aud was
well known in the Kootenays and

and Dan were interested with
him in the Kennedy Mountain

Mr. Husband, why are yon fo

Of course it is customary for
husbands and wives to have an
understanding relative to such
matters, aud your wife knows that
you often do things "for appearance sake."
Bnt once in a while why do you
not take your wife out and spend
lavishly on her for a good time,
when others are not prpsent, and
watch the effect? It will cost you
much less, than to entertain a
party, and the pleasure it will give
her ought to compensate you���
fully.      .
