Over 150 tons of coal per day is
being shipped from the coal  mine
near  Coalmont.     At  present   the
coal is being  hauled  to the railway in  trucks,   but this   will be
done away  with  when the tram
line,   which   the company  is now
building,    has    been    completed.
Good progress is being made in the
construction of this  tram and in a
short time the coal will be hauled
by tbe aerial route and the  output
is expected to be largely increased.
In fact, it is expected that the output; will  necessitate a daily train
service to handle the coal alone,"as-
practically all of this coaMs to go_
to >he~ Great "Northern railway.

He sighed and gazed about him
"Look," he said, pointing to the farther end of the calm lake. "See
them   shaddcrs,   down   there?"
Edna looked. All along thc shore,
from the limpid depths of the lake
was mirrored a wonderful picture of
trees and rocks.
"That's about as near the rcal
thing as you kin get it, 1 guess maybe," said the lad, "ain't it?"
"You arc right," shc answered, impressed by his earnestness.
He stood erect and gazed all about
him. Hc drew in thc smells of the
forest in a long breath. When hc
looked at her again there was a
strange tenderness in his eyes.
"But pictures ain't all this," hc
sighed. "I guess thc best painter in
thc world would havc to leave a lot
outen his picture."
He picked up the rifle which hc
had stood against a tree, and passed
down the path leading to Lookup.
CHAPTER VII.
Dorkin's Preserve lay between two
great lakes on the highest part of
the Ontario Highlands, a strip of
beautiful hardwoods nine miles long
by three wide. Why Nature, ever a
whimsical mother, had seen fit. to
strew these sloping uplands, which by
right of heritage belonged to thc
coniferous trees, with sturdy beech,
maple and hickory, will never bc
known. Perhaps in one of her freakish moods she did it, or, it may be
that the golden trails of sunset,
stretching from far-off Old Creation
Hills, begged her for this bluc-grcen
runway across thc deeper green of
thc tamaracks, that thcy might race
there with thc swift-footed shadows
of thc twilight.
It was a glorious beautiful strip of
forest ���shaggy-lopped beeches with
gnarled old bodies interlocked branches with straight-limbed maples;
sturdy oaks whispering sibilant messages up to tall hickories. Beneath
them, ovcr mosses and fern, rested
thc blue drab hush""of thc shagland
.day; subdued,' softened, scented;
pregnant wifli lifc, quivering with thc
motion of eternal evolution.
-" And jusl'as she scatters littic pockets, of gold here and there about the
crevices in which she hides .the mother lode, so Nature had scattered littic
miniature " groves "and -splashes of
hardwoods far, far .down through tlie-
hcighboring ;��� valleys arid uplands"
northward. " In these .mixed timbers
thc trappers had their grounds. Along the swift streams, on the shores
of the tiny lakes, in the-vast lnarsh-
lands.of the swales, thcy reaped,
spring aiid winter, ��� the harvest .of-
furs that meant to -them "existence."".
��� -But wild 'things-arc..w.sseVsagacious;
cunning.    No man has yet been able
-to define-.that 'marvellous'; instinct
which guides, thcm from .'tlic- danger-
zone- into places of. protection^
Throughout- the great-forest: ran a
whisper, that' safety lay-in' the "golden,
. uplands..- Far- down-along the ccdar-
; hedged Irtke , of Timo'chouch,'. in "a.
���" grotto deep beneath .an"outstanding
". crag,'-a mot her mink", nursing her five
blind kitten's,-received the mysterious
������ summons. Late'r, she'.hid her-kittens'
..in a burrow; beneath -the-roots, of: a
"great 'tree-standing'.-.-above a clear
.^stream in the^ Hardwoods. Preserve.-' ���-
X 'A ficrce-cy'cd   fisher,"-prowling,  on
��� the" shore of: his :waterway,"heard the,
-whisper, arid with-his"mate sought.thc
hardwoods. A. red .fox'.skulking; among tiic-ccdars deserted .her.deiv be-
i'neath' the fringed -creek" of'tlie lowland, and in a'burrow, of the Highlands- brought- lip- her family of six
puppies., ' .-.��� .    ,      .--      -.' '
.'. And'thus,' gradually," many of the
animals and-- gamebirds,    until'   now
. :fcarrh'aunted;and'. j'nari;hunted,   came
- jnto'.thc.;rctrcat"'which.. Dorkin had
rnadc'for-ithcm..,--: "  '

- few . stealthy��� lyiws. finding the
grouse-lands growing less fruitful and
;.lcarnsng; that the birds had' moved to
." thc Uplands, followed.    The rod deer
browsed   among   thc  second   growth,
of beech and birch, unmolested.    Ev-
.'en  those- grey, gaunt prowlers,    ihe
. wolves, -came   suspiciously  into    thc
kingdom only to learn that thcy alone
of all the wild kindred, were  ostracized from the forest haven; so that,
disappointed   in   their  desire  to  tear
down  and destroy, they slunk.away
from the hardwoods in which lurked
���a deadly menace to their lives;.-;."-";
All about  the'border of. the  Preserve,    Dorkin ��� had    tacked .notices
which read; "This is a. private-;^Preserve.      Trespassers will-.be punished
according to law.",.".-y , X-.'.-'y^yXX.X
.The placing of 'these notices, 'as ;hc

scnted by the more daring of the
trappers. They were lorn down, only
to be replaced by fresh ones. These
went thc way of the others. Then
Dorkiu called his helper, La Peer, and
said:���
"Thesc notices of ours don't seem
to have hit the popular sentiment,
Pete. What do our neighbors object
to about them, do you suppose?"
The Frenchman scratched his head.
"Dey don' lak any of 'em mooch,
I guess," he grinned, "but I t'ink dey
lak dis part here least of all." tic
pointed to the words "according to
law,'-' staring up from onc of thc
torn notices.
"Oh," frowned Dorkin, "they don't
like thc law business, eh? We'll we
will fix that to suit them, Pete. I'm
glad you suggested it; it makes it
simpler for mc."
The notices Dorkin next nailed up
read: "This is a private preserve.
Trespassers will bc punished."
On the morning following thc placing of these, he came across a trapper by the name of Simmons, busily
engaged in tearing one of thc notices
from the tree. The man's action was
deliberate. Suceeding at length in
ripping it off the board, hc threw it
down on the sward ��� then picking up
his rifle hc looked about him as if
in search of further devastation.
Dorkin, who had stepped behind a-big
beech, waited until thc trapper was
opposite to him; .then reaching out,
he gripped him behind thc neck and
choked him until his rifle fell to tlie
ground. Simmons, who, although a
sizable man, was no match for thc
other's strength, stamped and cursed
in pain, but to no avail. Dorkin shook
him, slapped his face, and finally with
a kick, sent him sprawling a dozen
yards away, just outside thc Preserve
bounds.
Thc trapper sat up, gazing blankly
about him, and then rose shakily to
his feet.- ���>
"You don't like my notices, I sec?"
said Dorkin cheerfully. "Well, you
leave them alone, hear me? . You
fellows all leave them alone. ^ Did
you read it?" hc asked, pointing to
thc onc thc man had lately pulled off:
Thc trespasser nodded sulkily.
"Well,, read it to me now."
"You go to hell" growled Simmons.
Dorkin took a step forward. "Read
it to mc now," >he repeated.
This timc the trapper hastened to
execute the order.
"Maybe you thought those last four
wor'ds were just' a little joke?" said
Dorkin when the other concluded.
"Well, you've learned better. Hereafter, you and all other arc to leave
thosc notices alone. I guess that's
all���so get!"
Hc pointed away, towards, the lowlands, but lhc trapper did not move.
"Give, mc my gun-," hc demanded.
."-You don't get it,": returned Dorkin.. "It's confiscated."'-' .' '���'
. "I want it," cried the trapper with
an- oath, "and I'm- goin' ter have it."
; "Oh; arc' you?" Dorkin pointed to
thc rifle on the 'moss. . "Theii. suppose you come inside and get' it?"
hc invited.      _'.' ' - '    -

Canada's War Pictures
Best in the World
Lewis Hind, Eminent Art Critic,
Praises Collection
"Therc is absolutely no doubt that
through thc good work of Lord Bea-
vcrbrook and Mr. P. Konody, Canada
has the greatest and thc best collection of war memorial pictures in the
world," said Mr. Lewis Hind, eminent
English art critic and the author of a
score of books, who was in Toronto
to view thc pictures at thc Canadian
national exhibition.
In this matter, Canada-has beaten
all thc nations. England and France
havc quite excellent collections, "but
thcy do not compare with those of
Canada. That of the United States
is comparatively poor. Not only docs
thc Canadian collection illustrate
evcry phase of thc war, but is a record of the activity of modern art as
well. Europeans will have to come
here to see the Canadian war memorials as a complete record��of modern
art.
"The Canadian work as I saw it
at thc exhibition this ycar," said Mr.
Hind, "displays a sense of color that
is remarkable and a wonderful decorative quality. Canadian artists arc
painting Canada. Their work is
racia, as it should bc. Thcy are
going 'on thcir own.' If a certain
number of pictures now being painted
in Canada, were exhibited in London,
it would have a very great effect, indeed, because Canadian work is not
known there."
Mr. Hind was sub-editor of thc Art
Journal, editor of-the-Pall Mall.-Budget, and editorof the Academy.'  .',
i Livestock  Commissioner  Goes  East
To Secure Pure Bred
Sheep
For thc purpose of purchasing a
number of choicely bred sheep, J. G.
Robertson, provincial livestock commissioner, has left for Eastern Can-
means j ada, where hc proposes to buy sheep
for distribution among thc farmers
of the province. Mr. Robertson will
also make an effort to pick up a few
choice dairy heifers. Thesc animals
will all bc tuberculin tested and carefully examined to prevent the importation of cattle diseases into the province.
While he is down East Mr. Robertson will go to Quebec and take ovcr
thc ten head of purebred registered
Shropshire sires that have just passed
quarantine.  ,i
"These Shropshire's have just been
imported into Canada from Great
Britain by the Sask. Sheep Breeders'
Association," said Mr. Robertson.
"They comc from\thc celebrated flock
of T. A. Buttar, Corston, Coupar-An-
gus, Scotland. Thc energy and activity of the sheep breeders in thus endeavoring to improve thc flocks of
Saskatchewan by thc importation of
ncw blood is certainly to bc commended, and will undoubtedly show good
results in  thc near future.

Co-Operative Dairying
In Manitoba
A Province-Wide Co-Operative Enterprise Established
\ What is hoped will be an epoch in
the history of dairying in Manitoba
has recently been consumated when
a province-wide co-operative enterprise, known as the Manitoba Co-
Operative Dairies, Limited, was registered under the laws of thati province. '���'
In view of the success of co-operative dairying in other parts of Canada, particularly in the Western
provinces, the dairymen of Manitoba
.have become more and more convinced''that co-operation offers a
more profitable field than is to bc
found in individual and competitive
methods of dairying. A co-operative
dairy company was therefore formed
with Ji SI. Carriithers, for many years
general manager of the largest dairy
ing company in thc provinces as the
manager. Thc objects of the company, as set forth in thc charter, are
to purchase milk and cream from the
farmers,' to manufacture butter, ice
cream and other dairy products, and
to distribute fresh milk, cream and
dairy products for city consumption.
The company is also empowered to
deal in dairy supplies, feedstuff's and
other requirements of dairy farmers.
In order that this shall always remain a farmers' enterprise, it is provided that only bona-fidtf" farmers,
thcir immediate relations living on a
farm, and farm employees may become shareholders.
Speaking of this ncw co-operative
enterprise, and summarizing its advantages, the secretary of the Winnipeg district Milk Producers' Association, says: "Thc association is province-wide in its scope. It will engage
in all the ramifications of the dairy
business., It will, we believe, be of
immediate benefit to all of them. The
experience everywhere has been that
straight grain farming has had to
give way to mixed farming. The
spread of mixed farming means that
eventually practically every farmer
will keep cows and market milk or
its products to a greater or less extent. Manitoba has got to follow the
general trend in this direction. Our
object should bc to produce enough
butter to butter every' slice of bread
which the wheat we produce will
makc. The farmers have a splendid
opportunity in getting together behind a co-operative enterprise, the
prospects of which arc as wide as the
future  dairy  industry  of  Manitoba."

Canadian Fire Losses
Fire Loss for 1920 May Exceed Any
So Far Recorded
If the average of losses of'the first
five months of the year is maintained,
fire losses in Canada during 1920 will
reach almost $28,000,000, according to
figures made public by thc Commission of Conservation. Should these
figures be reached the losses will exceed any thus far recorded, with the
exception of those incurred during
1918 through the destruction of a
number of munition plants. They already exceed those of 1919, an exceptionally favorable year, by over one
and a half million dollars, the total
for the vc months' period being well
upward of $11,000,000.
With disastrous fires in both- the
coast province and the far cast and in
the middle west durmy lu past few
weeks, it is almost a certainty that
the estimate of the Conservation
board will not be met but considerably exceeded.���Edmonton  Bulletin'.'
Farm Sells for High Price

or $125 per acre. There are some
good buildings oh the farm. The
price is one of thc highest that has

Canadian Cattle for Europe
Cattle   From   Dominion    Becoming

About two thousand head of Canadian cattle arrived at Antwerp, Belgium, a few days ago. The city of
Paris, which is expected to complete
a contract for the purchase of cattle
in Canada, had two representatives
on hand to examine the quality of
the animals sent lo Belgium, their
condition on arrival and the requirements  for  receiving such  cargo.
The quality of Canadian cattle has
become known all over the world and
numerous orders have been placed by
the war-stricken countries of Europe,
to help replenish their depleted herds
of horses and cattle. The export
trade of livestock from Western Canada is now of considerable importance and is all thctimc increasing.

Womens New Status
Ratification by tlic   legislature    of
Tennessee of the amendment to the
constitution of the United States cx-
'tending cqujil suffrage to women was
noteworthy in that it made, the 36th
State tox approve ofythc amendment,
..and  consco.ucntly made  possible  the
promulgation of thc new .constitutional'change as binduig upon'the whole
nation.   As a result' between 15,000,-
000 and 20,000,000   women    will" be
-added  to the list of qualified voters
a  in   thc   presidential <> elections    next
November.    In . other-words,    there
will  bc in  the  neighborhood ,of 40,-
000,000 eligible voters in  the-United
States,  a number unequalled  in  any
other country.
What" effect this large enfranchisement of new voters will have on'Ihc
. fortunes of the Republican and .Dcr
mocratic parties it is difficult to say.
The probability is that in this first.
election the women will, as a general
GREENWOOD,

the  rights   of women,..working  girls J
and  children   generally.
So, too, thc presence of women in
thc legislatures of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia, and
Almost certainly in the next Dominion parliament, as well as upon municipal councils and school boards, is
bringing new angles to thc consideration of public matters of far-reaching importance. To an increasing
extent in thc future, business in thc.
government and the practical side of
ministration will be softened by attention bcing devoted to more sentimental and acsthctical considerations.
As a consequence ofi the participation of women in public affairs there
must come, as there has ,comc from
their general entry into business, a
greater self-reliance on thc part of
thc women themselves. Thcy will
need it, because, as they increasingly
engage in occupations formcrjjr regarded as the exclusive prerogative of
the men, it is inevitable that the old
deference paid by men to women will
become less in evidence. This tendency, regrettable as it is, is already
noticeable in-small matter, as, for instance, thc growing reluctance of men
to give up their'seats to women in
crowded cars or other places of assembly, or to giving them precedence
in a crowd. Women will miss thesc
little old-time courtesies, and it is a
pity' that they should pass, as already
there is too littic gentleness and
courtesy in this matter-of-fact, workaday world. But it is a pricc that,
apparently, must be paid in this new
age of absolute equality between men
and women. ���
It is to be hoped, however, that
mothers will still inculcate in their
sons,a high regard and-respect for,
and gentleness and courtesy towards,
women, and that all men will strive
to maintain such an attitude towards
women even, in thc stress, strife and
turmoil of business and pplitical life,
and that thc women will endeavor to
be worthy of such regard from thc
men, so that, with all the undoubted

I. The Queen of Sheba Visits Solomon   (vv.   1,2.)       .-���'
Hcf visit was the result of Solomon's widespread fame. That which
made him famous was:
1. Thc extent of his kingdom (4:
21-25). Hc ruled over all the kingdoms from tlie Euphrates river to
thc Mediterranean sea, except the
Phocnecians, but thcy were in allia-
ancc with'him. This was the nearest
to the realization of the Divine promise (Gen. 15:18), that Israel ever
enjoyed; but the fullness of the promised possession shall bc leaiizcd
when thc Greater.than Solomon is
King.
- 2. His great wisdq;n (4: 29-34). It
excelled that of thc Chaldeans, Persians and Egyptians (vv. 30, 31)
None of his contemporaries approached unto him in knowledge. Hc
had a singularly comprehensive mind
Hc was (1) a moral philosopher ���
spake 3,000 proverbs (2) a poet ���
his songs were a thousand and five
(3) a botanist���he spake of trees from
the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even
unto thc hyssop that springeth out of
the wall (4) a zoologist���he spake ,bf
beasts and fowl, and of the creeping
things' and-of fishes. He was superior in intellect to any of his own or
any other age.
3. Thc temple (chs. 5 and 6). This
was an exact reproduction of the tab-
-crnacle, double in size, in marble and
in gold. Thc amount of labor, skill
and money expended on the building
was exceedingly great (I. Chron. 22.
14-14). Never Sefore had such a
cosily  structure   ever  appeared.
4. Royal palaces adjoining thc temple (ch. 7). Following the erection
of the temple hc began -the building
of his own house. He was nearly
twice as long in building this as in
building thc Lord's house.
5. His commerce (9: 26-28; cf. II.
Chron. 9:10 21). L His trading ships
went east as far as the Indian ocean,
perhaps even to India; and west as
far as Spain.
6., Army and navy (10: 26-29; cf.
9:27).: Such wealth and greatness
would at sometime provoke opposition, so he put his nation into a state
of preparedness.
All this greatness was associated
with thc namc of thc Lord. It was
known that,his fame was due to his
relation with the living God. No one
ever had a greater; missionary opportunity than he. Wealth and knowledge may bc powerful factors for thc
extension of thc cause of, Christ.
II. The'.Queen of Sheba Astonished
,  (vV. 3-9): y .'��� '- ���,      ' ''.
After the interview in which Solomon answered all her questions, .she
was-''overwhelmed with liis great-wisdom. She had plied him with hard
questions to see if he could measure
up to.liis reputation, and found that
the half"had not beeu told her..

'to Solom'oii (wi 10-13).-
'- As was the custom, she . brought
gifts to-Solomon", the king,.- the ;gold
of which was-in value between three
aiid four millions'of dollars;-   '���....
- This "was" a large gift .for that time,-
But Solomon" more than recompensed
her: He gave her all she desired and
iu addition,,   of- his- royal"  bounty.

to-her was-greater; even in,"keeping

Discoveries in North Country Are
Becoming Richer
H. L. F. Blake, representing several
English syndicates, who has been exploring Chibougamou and Northern
Quebec with a party arrived recently
in Montreal on his way down the
North Shore to make further explorations in Ungava. Mr. Blake reports
that the mineral discoveries in the
north -are becoming richer and richer
on each occasion he visits the interior
of the country, and predicts that the
day is not far distant when the large
steel interests will look to Northern
Quebec for their raw material. The
enormous water powers will supplant
coal in the production of iron and
steel and will nlake Quebec one of
the richest parts of thc Dominion, if
not of all America, from the mineral
point of view.

More Valuable Crop Than in 1915
C. E. N.eill, general manager of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce, says
that thc value of this year's crop on
the prairies will bc greater than it
was in 1915, atlhough thc yield will
bc somewhat short of tliat banner

which is not only a worm destroyer,
but a health-giving ainedicinc most

Will Purchase Land
In Alberta
British Farmers Will Also Buy Winter Residence In Vancouver
A group of nine English agriculturists whose ancestors have farmed
for generations* near .Manchester,
leave Vancouver aftcr a few -"days'
visit, to inspect Alberta farming
lands, with a view to purchasing a
section each for the sixteen families
they are^ representing. They did not
come to Briiish Columbia expecting
to purchase land, but have been so
delighted with their trip that it. Is
their intention to buy a residence in
Vancouver, where members of fhc
party will#visit during the winter
months. /
X On the advice of their bankers, the
visitors brought $2,800 "each with
thcm,"' leaving thc remainder; of thcir
money oh deposit in England, in thc
hope that thc - exchange situation
would improve before-' thcy paid tor

With the Increased cost of labor and
materials due to war conditions, it is
not reasonable to suppose that a really
first class baking powder can Be made
and sold at the old prices* Rather than
sacrifice the quality of
0 .  .
we found it necessary to make slight increases
in price during the war period. Even though
Magic Baking Powder may cost a few cents
more than the ordinary kinds it is still by far
the most economical baking powder on the
market to-day when purity, strength and leaven-
Ing qualities are taken into consideration..

Faith Cures
Sensitiveness of the Mind A Determining Factor in Respect
To Health -
There is nothing ncw in the cures
reported through the medium of the
"bleeding sacred statues" at Temple-
more, Ireland. St. Anne Dc -Beau-^
pres, Quebec, is a shrine at which
thousands are said to be cured evcry
year. These are faith cures, and for
certain ailments, such cures are neither strange nor unusual. Reversely,
a perfectly well man may I ��� madc to
feel ill by being told that he look*
ill and must be ill. The sensitiveness
of the mind is often a determining
factor in respect to sickm ;s and
health. But the only sure way of
curing'disease is to consult a competent doctor and to follow his adv'ce
and the word "doctor" docs not necessarily mean thc medical profession
only.���Calgary Herald.

field there will turn out to be one of
the richest in the world.

selected with an eye to their future
usefulness were presented to the
popular bride-elect, the presentation speech being made by Ray
Jones, and a suitable response
made by Mr. Thompson. Light
refreshments were then served and

To Be or Not to Be
It Isn't Your Town; It's You
If you want to live in the kind of a town
Like the kiud of a town you like.
Vou needn't slip your clothes iu a grip
And start on a long, long hike,
You'll only find what you left behind,
For there's nothing that's realiy new;
It's a knock at yourself when you leave
your town���
It isn't your town���it's you.
Real towns are not made by men afraid
Lest someone get ahead;
When every one works and nobody shirks
Yon can raise a town from the dead.
And if when you make your personal
stake
Your neighbor can make one, too,
Your town will be what you want to see	
It isn't your town���it's you.

* al. It is a book containing 86 illustrations all
told, and is' filled with
sketches and stories of
western life. It tells how
a gambler cashed in after
the flush days of Sandon ;
how ife rained in New Denver long after Noah was
dead; how a parson took a
drink at Bear Lake in
early days; how justice
was dealt in Kaslo in 93;
how fehe saloon man out-
prayed the women in Kalamazoo, and graphically de>
picts the roamings of a
western editor among the
tender-feet in fehe cent belt.
It contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens
of articles too numerous
to mention. Send for one
before it is too late. The
price is 50 cents, postpaid to any part of the
