According to a Victoria report
the British Columbia Sugar refinery is now in a position to
practically guarantee the population of this province an adequate
supply of sugar for the current
year, according to the information given the legislature Inquiry
by Blythe Rogers at its session
on Monday afternoon. He was
not in a position. to name tbe
minimum price which it might
be expected to reach, but pointed
to a statement that his plant had
given the British Columbia people
'the cheapest sugar in the world
during the shortage crisis as'an
indication that his refinery might
not be expected to exact an undue
toll. Mr. Rogers - also swore
that the refinery exercised no

Three Hundred" Dollar Ore
The Pr6vidence�� mine, ^G^een-
wood, is showing up better than
ever. On Wednesday a car of
high grade ore was shipped to
Trail, making a second so far this
month. There is about 36 tons in
this shipment and owing to the
high quality of the ore it will easily
run 8300 to the ton.
This is proof that the Greenwood camp can produce ore as
high in valne as an section in B.C.
The Premier mine near Stewart of
which one hears so much these days
shipped $200 ore this winter, while
the Providence has sent out ore
recently valued afe $280 a ton and
the car that left yesterday will
touch $300 a ton.

In 1897 Guess Bros, opened an
office in Greenwood as assayers and
chemists, moving to this city from
Fairview where they had been connected with the Strathyre mine.
The firm consisted of George A.
Guess and Harry A/ Guess both
brilliant graduates of the University of Toronto. While'they were
in business here, tbey had the
Guess block built in 1899, now
occupied by McElmon's Jewelry
Store. Leaving here in the early
part of this century the Guess
Bros, went to Mexico, where they
were connected with the famous
Cananea and other mines.
In recent years George  has been
connected with the University of
Toronto, ��� being Professor of Min-
l ing and Metallurgy.^   ^, (      ,
.When the Granby smelter at
A.nyox was constructed and the
furnaces were blown in, for a
period the ores of that camp were
hard to smelt as they did not properly flux. In this instance Professor Guess came west and for a
time acted in a consulting capacity
a^Anyox, and his experiments enabled the management of the
smelter to handle the ore successfully.        ' ���     '    v
Every since Harry left Greenwood he has been connected with
mining and is now the head
engineer for the Guggenheim syndicate and he is also consulting
engineer" for'~various mines and
smelters in which this syndicate is
interested.  - '   '
Our jeaders will be greatly
pleased to learn thafe.tbe Guess
Bros, have for over 25 years owned
the Susie group of mineral claims
near Fairview and have had great
faith in jthe group. At present they
are having the water pumped out
of the mine, to enable a full an
careful examination by them, with
a view of working the property.
It is to be hoped that while they
are in Fairview, they will again
visit Greenwood district, in which
camp they played such an important part in tbe early days.
Court Jails a Motor Car
1 A California magistrate struck a
new note recently when he jailed
a motor car for speeding and allowed the speeder go free. -There are
great possibilities in this line of
reasoning. For a five day period
at least that motor car was ont of
harm's way, and the owner, presumably not having a second car,
would also be safe for a like period
of time. On the second offense the
magistrate might fine the car one
tire, and if it' still persisted in
"hitting it up" a second tire might
be pinched; and so on until finally
His Honor would have a complete
car at his disposal. - These suggestions are nofe patented.' , Any Canadian police magistrate may adopt
them without fear of infringement.

Three hundred men are engaged
in the mining industry at Kimber-
ly in East Kootenay.
A shipment of ore went out
from the Crescent, Greenwood, to
the Trail smelter last week.
This winter the famous Premier
near Stewart, shipped 600 tons of
ore valued at $200 a ton.
The Aspen mine in the Sheep
Creek district, recently shipped
several tons of high grade ore to
the Trail smelter.
The Silver Tip mine on Alice
Arm changed hands twice in two
weekB. This mine will be developed durirfg the coming season.
The Hedley Gold mine on Nickle
Plate mountain at Hedley, one of
the richest gold properties in the
world, is again operating to full
capacity with 168 men.
Recently! two Washington shippers appeared on the ore returns at
the Trail smelter. They were the
Gladstone, at Boundary, with 46
tons, and the Kaaba at Oroville,
with 41 tons.
A short distance west of Oroville,
Wash., the Southern Minnesota
and Washington Mining company
is installing a large amount of
machinery at their mine. Development work has been carried
on for some time and it is now
proven that a great mine exists.
Definite iustructions have been
received at The Pas, Man., - to dismantle tbe Mandy mine and,take
the machinery" and equipment,"
valued at $50,000,000 to the Flin
Flon property. Fifty teams have
been placed on the trail to'trans-*
port this outfit a distance of 10
mile3 to tbe great sulphide mines
and to carry-in supplies from this
point. This activity and shifting
of machinery is taken as proof of
the sale of the Flin Flon to the
International Mckle Company of
Canada.
The best year in the history of
the continent's greatest gold mine
is indicated by the annual report
of the Hollinger Consolidated Gold
Mines, Ltd., for the year ending
December 31, 1919. Total production of gold for the_ year
amounted to""$6,722,266, an increase over the previous year of
$1,200,000 and over 1917 of 82,-
500,000. Owing to the large investments of the company and the big
premium on gold, the company's
income from other sources during
the year grew from $155,957 in
1918 to $340,830 bringing the total
income of the company to well
over $7,000,000.
At Wingdam a crew of forty
men has been employed in sinking
�� shaft for the LightniDg Creek
Gold Gravel and Drainage Co.,
according to a Barkerville report.
Other shafts have been attempted
on this property during the past
twenty years,, bufe owing to the
tremerdous water pressure in the
stream gravels the shafts were
not successful. About a million
dollars have been spent in attempts
to develop the deep gravels of this
creek, which drilling has shown to
be immensely rich, values as high
as $75 and $80 to the cubic yard
beiiig reported. Tbe present company has equipped a pumping
plant of $6,000 gallons per minute capacity, and with a?1. .**
latest equipment necpesary for the
handling of difficult ground. The
present shaft bas been in' progress
since October, and good headway
is being made on ife.

Canada; A Nation In
A League of Nations
Participation In the Great War
carried Canada into world politics.
Prior to the war many Canadians had
got into thc habit of referring to Canada as a nation, but when it caine
down to a definition of onr legal and
International status it had to bc confessed that we were still a colony, a
.dependency of Great JRiitain. The
Great War has finally changed Canada's position in the world. Great
Britain no longer "looks upon Canada,
Australia nnd other overseas dominions as colonies or mere dependencies, but as sister nations' with Britain herself, the whole united in onc
partnership of equality under onc
Crown and forming thc British Empire.
Recognition of Canada's changed
atatus is not confined to the Empire
itself; it is now officially and legally
recognized in ar. international sense
by the admission of Canada as a nation in a. world League of Nations, a
League wherein Canada has equal
standing and equal responsibilities
with all the sovereign nations of the
world. Canada's right to such a status may be questioned, and recognition delayed, by thc United Statcs
Senate, but it is accepted and approved by all other nations, aud the United States will either have to accept
it or remain outside the League of
Nations.
Because of this change in the international status of the Canadian Dominion, and the new responsibilities imposed upon     Canada,  it  is not only
right but necessary that our people
should lake an interest in, study, and
endeavor to understand international
questions,'world politics, international
���'  finance,"' and  all  the  many questions
.which have, a vital influence-upon  thc
'..-������ currents of the world's public opinion.
:; No longer can Canadians be content
.;> to-allow the British foreign office and
,v.;tiie : British ' Parliament   to   settle   all
yfn.ternational" problems   for   us;   -we
X.must now-study, uhdersland,..and take
yZatii.active part-in the settlement of all
;; -such problems ourselves.
.;::-Undoubtedly one beneficial effect of
.* this , larger .interest ������   and  vision-   in'
;:Vworld affairs will" bc to broaden; the
;.. .view of' our people in' the considera-
;.'"'ticiti of domestic questions.' A's'"time
.':: -passes wc are: likely io become less
-. petty and parochial in our_ home poli-
\V..;tics.= as wc icar:i-the; necessity, ,'of com-
���'';-.promise-,   and; a' .policy  of;.'givc   and
..;..take,' in  the  settlement of.thc  many
ed by a consideration of the solution
! of similar problems elsewhere.
The introduction of the larger issues of world politics into the political discussions and life in Canada will
i not serve to weaken our Interest In,
or divert our attention from, domestic
problems and issues; on the contrary,
it should serve to" strengthen tlie determination of our people to approach
and settle them in a bigger way than
ever before in order that Canada may
become more and more united and
better fitted to perform its part with
honor aud credit to itself as a nation
in the League of Nations.
Formerly a debtor country to Great
Britain, United Statcs and other countries, Canada today has become a creditor nation. Belgium, Rumania,
France and other countries are now
in Canada's debt. We havc a direct
interest in thcir welfare aud stability.
Canada has established a great mercantile marine, with ships plying to
ports in all parts of the world, and
within a ycar or two thc number of
ships flying thc Canadian flag will bc
two or three times greater than today. Canada's international trade and
commerce is expanding by leaps and
bounds. A new national consciousness is at work which is the outgrowth of the war and our new national  status  and  dignity.
If this ncw consciousness is developed, and the people of Canada lay
aside their old sectarian quarrels and
bitterness, and set themselves energetically to thc task of developing thcir
own natural resources, aud increasing
production for world consumption,
thcy will quickly find their Dominion
forging ahead to lhat place which destiny intended Canada to occupy, aud
the hope of which, was thc inspiration
of the fathers of Confederation, and
the dvcani of our earlier pioneers.

���"Dodd's Kidney Pills made me feel
like a new person." That is the statement of Mrs. Miles Wood, a well-
known and highly respected resident
of this place.
"I was troubled with my kidneys,"
Mrs. Wood continues, "and my feet
swelled. I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills
with thc result that the swelling js
nearly all gone and I feel better in
evcry way.
"To' any person who is bothered
with kidney trouble or with their feet
and legs swelling I, would say 'use
Dodd's Kidney Pills.'"
- The women of Canada have come
to look on Dodd's Kidney-Pills as a
standard remedy for their kidney ills.
They act directly on the kidneys.
They are purcly and simply a kidney
remedy. By putting the kidneys in
good, condition to strain all the impurities, all the seeds of disease, out
of the blood they carry good health
to every part of the body. .Ask your
neighbors if Dodd's Kidney Pills ��� do
not help all kidney ills.   ���
United States LegaTExpert Supports
Canada's Stand
Henry F. Munro, lecturer on international law at Columbia University,
came out in support of Canada's stand
in regard to the League of Nations in
an address on "The United Statcs and
the Peace Treaty," delivered in New
York recently. After emphasising
the practical independence of the several parts of the British empire as a
compelling cause for thcir separate representation, Mr. Munro said: "It
does not follow that the British Dominions will always support Britisii
demands. A striking instance of this
was thc decision in the Alaska boundary dispute in 1903, when Lord Al-
verstonc, chief justice for England,
voted with thc American arbitrators
as against the two Canadians.
. "If we trace thc rise and development of the so-called United States
protectorates in the Caribbean region,
we find that the U.S. "is possessed of
much more authority ovcr Cuba,
Haiti, San Domingo, Panama, and
Nicaragua than is Great Britain ovcr
any of her dominions, and in international conferences of any kind would
bc likely to have much morc influence
over their votes than would Great Britain over those of the .British Dominions."
Mr. Munro made a strong appeal
for ratification of the treaty by-the
U.S.
Leon Trotzky's
Train deLuxe
One of Most Interesting Fittings Is
a Printing Offica
London, England.���A Russian refugee who recently arrived in Finland
gives the following account of the
special train used by Leon Trotzky:
The train consists of 14 cars and two
powerful engines. It is supplied with
a wireless installation capable of receiving communications from Nau-
heim, Lyons and London. As soon
as the train arrives at a station it is
at once connected with the telephone
system. The wireless telegraph works
night and day. One of the most interesting fittings of the train is a
printing office, which prints Trotzky's
paper. On the Way. The greatest
curiosity, however, is the train car of
the former imperial garage, which
contains six motor cars, one of them
a French car which belonged to the
Czar. The escort on the train consists of 250, that is, a whole company
of machine gunners, as Leon Trotzky,
with his train, has often been near
the front. The train also contains a
library and a dining car.

Saskatchewan is fast coming to the

more rapid development is looked for
in thc future. Quality counts, and
everything that can be done^in the
way of emphasizing the need for a

a step in the right "direction.

CHAPTER XX.     .
The litigation (a polite phrase for
anything pertaining to equity in the
Ottoman Empire) over the estate of
Hamid Pasha was tiresome in the extreme, thc object bcing apparently so
i\ to delay anything approaching a deli' cision as to wear out the. patience of
thc foreign claimant and thus to save
for the Empire the ten per cent, of
the whole which Ruggles might otherwise have' expected eventually to receive.
- In this the wily Turk met with thc
success which usually has attended
his policy of procrastination. Ruggles, after several interviews with high
officials, one being no less a person
than the Grand Vizier himself, and
appearing several times before a tribunal for thc investigation of his
claims as an'heir, was politely informed that the ,case would be tried according to the regular procedure of
the Ottoman law and that every justice would be .rendered him. Aftcr
that nothing happened.
���Pembroke returned tp England
when Rugglcs had been about three i
weeks at the Porte, and the latter was
relieved to" have him go, as the surgeon had grown moody and taciturn
and inclined lo avoid all social intercourse. His attitude toward Ruggles
was similar to that of a would-be suicide who harbors resentment against
the friend who has thwarted him. It
was understoocLbctwecn the two that
Pembroke was not to see Roxana
again.
At the end of six weeks, thoroughly
disgusted with Ottoyian "law" and its
methods, Ruggles^_ consigned the
whole business^ to Mr. K., etc., and returned to Paris, The summer had
been a vile one in western Europe,
and many"people had preferred to remain in Paris to soaking and freezing
alternately at the beaches and other
icsorls, so that with the usual influx
of foreign visitors thc city had rather
its winter than its summer aspect.
His~household "greeted him" warmly;"
and from Miss Challand (for Miss
Elliot had tacitly resigned her office
of matchmaker in favor of this lady)
lie received the gratifying news that a
matrimonial alliance had been propos-.
ed by a certain Madame de Monterau
'on the part of her two sons, Marcel
nnd Bertram!, aged respectively 27
and 24, whom shc desired to wed to
Bulbul and Alessandra. These young
gentlemen, though ��not titled, were, of
a good family of prosperous manufacturers.- On thc death of their-fa-
Jher, they might expect io inherit thc
business and a considerable fortune.
. Also, the hand of Roxana had been
lought in marriage by thc young
Baron von Hertzfeld; son of thc retired banker of that name, originally
of St. Petersburg. The Von Hcrlz-
feldn wer*c orthodox Jews, enormously rich and highly respected. Yakub,
Roxana's suitor, was thirty years of
age and a man of great charm and
Intelligence. lie had been presented
by an attache of thc British Embassy.
"Of course," said Miss Challand,
"she would have to embrace his religion. - Do you think Hamid Pasha
would have objected?"
"No," Ruggles answered. "All that
Hamid Pasha objected to was an all-
round infidel. What does Roxana
think about it?"
"Nothing has been said to Roxana,"
Miss Challand answered. "Shc is a
very odd girl, Mr, Ruggles. If it
weren't for the clever things she
sopetimes says, onc might almost
think her dull. The others arc tremendously interested in lhcir new:
lives, and as merry as schoolgirls on J
a lark. But Roxana goes sometimes
the whole day without speaking a
word., W. she seems happy, and is
always extremely agreeable. She must
see that Baron von Hertzfeld admires
her tremendously,- and shc is .always
very, nice to'him, but then she is-nice
to everybody. It is a constant source
of wonder tc mc to sec how quickly
these girls- have" adapted themselves
to - cur  customs.     One   would   think
that thej', were convent-bred.**
"I gu(\*s Hamid Pasha had something of this sort..planned for them
for a iongrtims," Ruggles answered,
"and sort of trained theni.for.it. Now,
about Roxana;: Maybe .I'd better
sound her a little, on the subject of
Von Hertzfeld. I'll.try to get a chance
to speak to her alone, to night after
dinner. Of course, if she doesn't
want; him, she doesn't have to. have
him." '"X-xX- x-y

was a Jew named' Simon.He left
there to study art. I'm going to look
him.up as soon as I get time and.see
how he's making but." ',-���
The household dined together, Rugbies presiding at one'end of the.table
and Miss Challand at the other, between them--such-a galaxy of beauty
as one might travel far and fail to
find.- Ruggles enjoyed these repasts,
for odd as thc assortment was they
represented the first home atmosphere
that he "had ever known. The conversation at table was general and
vivacious, Alcssandra and Bulbul being the chatterboxes of the party, and
Ruggles derived -much entertainment
from thcir childlike comments on people and things. When he hinnelf
spoke, the girls became quiet.
Roxana seldom volunteered a remark, although at first she had asked
a good many questions, usually of
Miss Challand, for whom she seemed
to have formed an ��� affection. Her
manner to Miss Elliot was formally
polite and to Dar'.hra friendly and
admiring. A musical artist herself,
Roxana appreciated Darthea's skill
with her brush, and nothing pleased
her morc lhan to bc askeel to. the
studio to sit and watch Darthea at her
work. This did not often happen, as
Darthca did not like to have her attention distracted when at her easel.
The evenings were usually spent in
music and bridge, of which game Miss
Chnlland was inordinately fond, and
which the girls had acquired as young
ducks learn to swim. Roxana alone
took no interest in cards, preferring
to amuse herself at the piano or harp
while the others were "at the-bridge
table. She liked, also, when the weather permitted, to throw a scarf about
her tawny head and walk about the
gardens alone. It was "Miss Elliot's
opinion that the girl was secretly
homesick ancl pining for the soft airs
which wafted clown the_ Bosphorus, so
she never interfered with these evening promenades.
Ruggles appeared to have brought
back the fair weather from the south,
for the day of his arrival in Paris was
one of thosc bright but softly colored
ones for which France is famed, and
which, alas, arc now becoming rare.
Thc sky - had been a drowsy, hazy
blue- and a soft breeze ""whispered
through thc high foliage of the ancient elms and acacias. Aftcr dinner
thc air cleared and thc stars shone
down from a lofty dome of deepest
indigo, and the air was sweet in the
garden wilh the flowering syringa. As
thcy left the dining-room, Roxana
lingered.
"I am going out. in thc garden,"
shc said to Miss Elliot. "I wish "to
take  the  air."
"Vcry well, my dear," Miss Elliot
answered, and glanced at Ruggles.
"Would you like to play .bridge" aftcr
we have our coffee, Mr. Ruggles?"
she asked.'
-- "I don't know how to play," Rugglcs answered. "I'll have to get you
to teach me some day. I guess I'll
go out and walk around a little with
Roxana,   if  she don't  mind."
Roxana's long lashes# swept up sud-:
denly, then down again.
"I shall bc mos' happy," she murmured.
Miss Elliot turned away, and Rugglcs led Roxana through the conservatory and out into thc perfumed
darkness. His stick slipped on the
step, and instantly Roxana's hand
closed on his arm with an amazing
strength.
"Be careful, Rugglcs - Effendi," said
her sweet voice in his ear. .And Rugglcs, while wondering at her strength,
for shc had saved him from a nasty
fall, was at the same' time conscious
of a faint, exquisite odor, spicy and
elusive, suggesting cinnamon and stc-
phanotis, and which seemed to comc
from her hair.
They followed a little path and
came presently^ to. a wicker bench uiv
der a flowering-catalpa, of which thc
snowy blossoms shone white against
thc dark, lustrous foliage..
"Let's sit down here," said Ruggles. "I want to talk to vou, Roxana."   .
"I am listening, Ruggles  Effendi."
Shc seated herself beside him, and
Rugglcs felt her breath on his cheek
as she swayed toward hini to look
into his face, as though trying to read
its expression in thc gloom. Again
hc was conscious of the sweet, faint
perfume. He leaned forward, resting
his clasped hands upon the head of
his cane.
' ^"Do you like it here in Paris, Roxana?" he asked.
"Yes���now that you have" come."
"Oh, what difference does that
make?" Rugglcs asked, a little awkwardly.    "You like it anyway, don't

There has been a marked revival in

The various shops are arranged so
that thc materials and parts flow uninterruptedly through "to thc finished
locomotive, and each step in the process of manufacture and assembly is
subjected to close continuous observation in order to prevent thc slackening of one part in thc process of evolution delaying the subsequent steps.

"I would not like it without you,"
she answered, "because I lovc you.
Can't you feel me loving you, beloved?" Her voice was like the first
sweet, low, tentative note of a nightingale before its song; a prelude and
a promise of thc liquid notes tb follow.
Rugglcs could scarcely believe that
he had heard aright; he was bewildered and confused. ' What did thc girl
mean? "Then it flashed through jits
head that this childlike declaration
was not to be taken in its "literal
sense, but merely as an expression of
sympathy and liking. ' It -would bc
outrageous to suppose that Roxana
had fallen in,love with hini, or that,
even if she thought she had, she would
state thc fact with such simple candor. ,   .
For Roxana's Oriental viewpoint of
their relative positions was impossible to Ruggles. It was inconceivable to his Western mind. He saw
himself as her guardian and protector and saddled with thc responsibility of her future welfare, himself but
a humble person from the middle
class, essentially practical and possessed of somc executive ability, but
as far removed from Romance as a
shoehorn. There is a certain type of

I. The Worshipers  (vv.. 9-14).
\ 1. Who,thcy arc'(vv. 9, 11).    (1)
Redeemed men (v. 9); They are mainly .Gentiles  ���~ "of  all  nations,   and
kindreds/ and- people,  and   tongues:""
They, are those to whom the "gospel
of  the kingdom"  has been  preached
by converted Israelites (Matt. 24:14).
In. the first part of .chapter seven we
saw God scaling his chosen ones-from
Israel.    Thcy were sealed with    the
seal of God in their foreheads, which
doubtless means the supernatural en-
jdow.ment of the  "Ho!v    Spirit on the"
|last days  (Joel 2:28-32).   /While this
{was partially fulfilled on the day of
I Pentecost, .its larger, . realization    is
istil| future (Acts 2:15-21).   This outpouring is for  the equipment of the
iJews for thcir divinely ordained mis-
jsiori, namely, to preach the gospel of
;the   kingdom   to thc   whole   world.
jWhen   God  sends ' fortho the   144,000
jjews with the   unction, of the Holy
���Spirit, the innumerable multitude from
all nations will receive     Christ, the
slain Lamb, for their redemption. (2)
AU'the angels (v. 11),   These angels
indorse this ascription of praise offered by these redeemed men by saying "Amen."
2. Whence came these redeemed?
(vv. 13, 14). Thcy came out of the
great tribulation (v. 14). After the
rapture of thc Church (I. Tness. 4:13-
18), awful days of suffering and trial
shall come upon the world (II. Thess.
2:7, 8). It is the time of sorrow when
the anti-Christ shall hold sway; such
days as were not before nor shall bc
after, in which if not shortened no
flesh could be saved (Matt. 24:15, 21,
22; cf. Dari. 7-8; 9:26, 27).
3. What they say (vv. 10, 12). (1)
Salvation to our God and thc Lamb
(v. 10). They ascribe tlicir salvation
to God through the sacrifice of the
Lamb, Jesus Christ.- (2) "Blessing."
They, acknowledge that all blessings
comc from him. (3) "Glory." Thcy
acknowledge him as the glorious one
and the onc lo whom all glory should
be given. (4) "Wisdom." He is infinitely wise and all wisdom comes
from him. (5) "Thanksgiving," because salvation was provided by him.
(6) "Honor." Their hearts went out
to him in high esteem. (7) "Power
and might." Thcy recognized that all
power inhered in him. ,
II. Thc Blessedness of-thc Worship
ers (vv. 13-17). '" .
1. Thcy are before - God's throne
(v.. 9, 15). They are in heaven and
near the throne of God- Jesus Christ'
is__no\v preparing, jnjyis-ipns,. for. those
who shall go to. heaven (John 15:1-3).
2. Clothed with white robes (vv. 9,
14). Their white robes suggest their
character. They have been made such
in the BTood of the Lamb. The only
���way for a sinner to be made ready
for heaven is through the blood of
Christ.
3. Thcy bear palm branches (v. 9).
The significance of the palm is fourd
in thc use that thc Jews made of it
at the Feast of Tabernacles.. It was
��� a time of great joy,' because it represented the gathered harvest. The
bearers of the palm branches will experience the blessedness of nol only
bcing in heaven, but of enjoying rewards for their work on earth.
4. Thcy serve God day and night
(v. 15). Heaven is not a place of
idleness, or altogether of singing
God's praises, but a place where real,
vital service is rendered to God; indeed, therc-are -nobler- fields-of- endeavor awaiting us beyond this life.
This lifers but a training school in
which we arc madc -ready for service
Jin heaven.    .
5. God dwells among them (v. 15).
jTo get to heaven at all would bc truly
I blessed, but to bc there and have God
to dwell among-us will be wonderful.
1    6.  Hunger no morc "nor  thirst   (v.
'16). Here life is onc continuous
round of hungering and thirsting.. In
heaven wc shall neither hunger nor
thirst, for Jesus "Christ, the Lamb,
shall feed us. Thc straits and necessities of lifc will then bc over.
7. Neither shall thc sunlight or
heat come upon them (v. 17).
8. God shall wipe away all tears
from  thcir eyes   (v.  17).

Large Gains
49th Annual Report Is Issued, Showing Tremendous Expansion .
Several new and interesting records
in the insurance business were made
jby  thc   Sun   Life  Assurance   Co.  of
Canada during 1919.   The 49th annual
report of the company .has just been
published and  shows     that the new
business actually issued and paid for
during thc past year was $86,548,850,
being an increase  of $34,957,457,  or
[67.7 per cent., ovcr 1918. "The tremen-
|dous business of the Sun Life.will be
.realized when it is stated that applications   for  ncw  assurances  retained
��� during 1919 exceeded     one'hundred
million dollars.   The .figure creates a
distinct record in the insurance business of the Dominion, as no Canadian
company has ever approached this total. :-.;;;
The business in force amounted to
$416,358,462,  showing an  increase of
J$75,548,805.    The assets of the company were increased by $8,091,089, and
jnow amount to $105,711,468, while lhe
| report shows a net surplus of $8,037,-
440 over and above all liabilities and
| capital stock, which indicates the im-
'portance attached by the company to
1 safety and protection.    Thc company
paid out  to'policy-holders  and their
beneficiaries $12,364,000, bringing the
total amount paid out in this connection since organization to $91,227,532.
Another record was  madc in  regard
to income with a total of $25,704,201,
or an increase of $4,053,101 ovcr the
previous year.
| Owing to the remarkable development v in thc business of Canada's
{greatest ~ life assurance corporation,
jthe directors feel that the business in
thc Dominion is due to enormously
i expand during the present year.
F. H. Auld, Deputy Minister of Agriculture for 'Saskatchewan, is authority for the statement' that creamery
butter production in Saskatchewan
has increased   during   thc past   year
j from 30 to 35 per cent, as compared
with thc year 1918.    The increase in
J1918 over the ycar 1917 amounted lo
i 50 per cent.
Sale   of  Pelts   for  the   Season  Will
Reach a Total of 5,000
.It is estimated by the government
that the sale of pelts in Prince Edward Island for the season will reach
a total of'5,000 pelts. These range
in price from $1,000 received for silvers down to $10 for the cheapest
reds. The average prices for silvers
will be between $150 and $200; for
patches, from $20 to $60; and for reds,
$35 downwards.    .
Fox ranchers are giving up the
breeding of the cheaper grades of
foxes, as their cost of keep and feed
is the same as for the others, and in
consequence domesticated reds are
becoming a rarity. It is estimated
that 1,500 pups were exported from
the island during the past season to
different points, viz., Upper Canada,
Manitoba, United Stajtes. and to Japan
and-Norway. An effort.is bcing made
to restrict the exportation of live
foxes for the protection of the province's industry.

Farmers Are Still
Buying Automobiles
No Class of Peopls Have Such Prospects for Continued Prosperity
as the Farmers
Representative automobile dealers
in all parts of Western Canada handling all types of cars are almost all
agreed that the demand for new passenger cars will be as great during
the next twelve months as at any previous time.   .
There are some very good reasons
for this viewpoint. They are particularly in thc rural districts, and they all
centre around the fact that no one
class of people today have so much
ready money or such prospects for
continued prosperity as the farmers.
Thc farmers have also realized in the
past few years, as never before, thc
ical value in dollars and cents of what
an automobile is to them in their
every day life, not only in thcir work,
but in their leisure timc as well.
The following table is sufficiently
comprehensive to give a striking impression of the growth in the number
of automobiles in use in Western Canada during the last ten years. The
figures contained therein are compiled

Stop, Look, Listen!
About 1500 persons were killed
at railroad crossings in the United
StafeeH last year. Mosfe of them
were in automobilee. Some didn't
look; others didn't listen, and very
many tried to beat the train across
the tracks.
Men waste hours and hoard
seconds. A fellow will loaf all day
and then risk his life in his hurry
to cross a congested street, or race
across a track ahead of a train, to
save a minute! It's a poor sort of
thrift.
What's the,hurry? It's better
to get there late than not at all.
Everybody knows this/ of coursel
But tbe headline that tells of a
family wiped out at a railroad
crossing has become a commonplace of the day's news.
"Stop! Look! Listenl" is the
classic among snappy slogans.
Everybody knows it by heart, but
nearly everybody forgets it when
he needs it most.
only field of mental, spiritual and
metaphysical study which is winning investigators and converts.
No one can say today what belief is correct and what is wrong,
whether there is any basis of fact
to popular theories or whether the
world has gone off on a tangent.
But there is evidence of a sincere,
world-wide longing to know the
truth.
Leap Year Proposal
. "Dear me," exclaimed the pretty
girl, we'll be late for the movie, I
know. Here we've been waiting
many minutes for that mother of
mine!"
"Hours, I'll Bay,", the young
man said.
"Oars?" she smiled sweetly,
''Bill, this is so sudden."

When you say "Hello?" when you answer^the telephone,
do you realize you are impeding your telephone service? The
person calling invariably asks who is speaking, and you give
the information you might have given iu the first place. When
you answer the telephone why not give your name or the name
of your firm and department in the first instance? Then you
would be getting service and giving service.
