property contained 71 acres, was
opened in 1907, and up to the time
of closing had produced 800,000
tons of excellent; coal or an average of 1000 tons to the acre.

The gold mining companies of
Northern- Ontario are -today receiving about 04 arionnce premium
on gold produced. \This added
revenue is due feo the sale of their
product at a premium of 18 per
cent, in the United States. In the
case of the Hollinger, where about
824,300 is being produced daily,
the receipts'of 83.70 an ounce premium amounts to an extra $136,-
738.12 monthly, or an added net
revenue at fehe rate of 81,640,857,-
50 annually.
Sfeeelite, a steel alloy in the
manufacture of which cobalt, the
metal, plays an important parfe, is
coming in for increased  use in fehe
manufacture of high  speed   tools	
and" cuttlery. ~ This has led to a
revival of interest in some of the
outlying properties on which silver
values are too low for profitable
mining, but where wide veins of
cobalt occur. With silver averaging over 81.30 an ounce, the'
mine workers of Cobalt are receiving an aveiage of over 85 a
day. Machine runners receive 84
a day plus a bonus of 25 cents a
shift when silver averages 80 cents
an ounce or over, and an additional
bonus of 25 cents a shift for each
10 points above SO cents an ounce.
Thus, with silver at 81.30 an
ounce, the bonus amounts to $1.50
a day plus the regular wage of 84.
As long as quotations for silver remain high, no further labor trouble
is anticipated in Cobalt.

Life in the Old Land Yet
Filled with admiration as al! Canadians wcrc by thc wonderful achievements of Great Britain during' the
war, and proud that thc Old Land
stood ready to sacrifice anything ancl
everything to win victory for liberty,
humanity and civilization, many people were apprehensive that when the
war was over Briiain would bc so financially weakened, and so disorganized industrially, thatr- it would havc
permanently lost its outstanding
position among the nations of the
world; that, in a word, British preeminence in finance, shipping and
world trade would have passed beyond recall to the United  Slates.
In order to carry on the war, Great
Britain not only spent huge sums herself, but loaned hundreds of millions
to nations upon rather doubtful security. In order to do tliis the Old
Land disposed of her foreign-held
securities, which constituted one of
thc large sources of her national income, and from being a lending nation
became a borrowing one, obtaining
enormous sums from the United
States. In many quarters it was confidently predicted lhat, as a result,
New York and not London wou!d be
the future financial centre of the
During     the War  Britisii   shipping
was  destroyed  by   the   piratical  submarines faster than  new ships could
bc built, while'practically all the shipping in  existence was diverted from
mercantile "to war-purposes."    Coincident    with  this,- thc    United  States,
which.prior lo  the war had" no mer-
' canlilc marine worlhy'lhe name, seized  tlic   occasion' to   embark  upon  a
��� great-' Government   shipbuilding   pro-
.grain, 'and' in addition- it "secured .the
'nucleus of'-'a mercantile.'marine from
, the seizure of interned German ships.
In   the   third   place,   thc   whole   of
Great Britain's great, industrial enterprises were diverted from usual peacetime manufacture ahd ."mobilized  for
the   manufacture   of; munitions- and
other war'material, while, during the
- years'-from; August; 4,, 1914; until'ilie

It-was biit natural .that, under- these
"circumstances! roXZny people""should:Uc
: fearful for Great Britain's future. And
���:ain is Lord NorthclifFc, head of the
London Times and a hundred other
daily, weekly and monthly publications. He has avenues of information
open to him which few men in thc
wor'.d enjoy. And Lord NorthclifTe
is the reverse of pessimistic.
In a recent interview with an
American journalist he is more than
optimistic-over the labor situation in
the Biitish Isles, and lays particular
emphasis upon th.e fact that while in
the-United Stales thcy have to deal
with a laryc percentage of foreign-
born workers, Briiish labor is composed overwhelmingly of men and
women of English, Scotch, Irish and
Welsh birth. Great Briiain is solving
her labor troubles upon sound lines
and in an efficient way. Nor does he
fear the competition of cheap labor
ind long working hours in countries
like Japan, where' present conditions,
he says, cannot last. Industrially,
Lord Northcliffc backs the skilled
British workman and mechanic
against  the  world.
In regard to shipping, Lord NorthclifTc is absolutely confident that
Great Britain will retain her supremacy. In this connectioi'.'he says: "Wc
expect vcry heavy competition at sea,
but it is not disturbing our able and
far-seeing shipping men. We rely for
our supremacy in shipping upon our
superior knowledge of a business
which wc havc understood for centuries. Onr people like shipping. Our
people like being at sea. I do not
think you (United Statcs) are going
to get many American seamen from
thc majority of your slates and territories. Why should you? There is
abundant opportunity at higher wages

Value of Saskatchewan's
Agricultural Production
A Total Yield of 89,993,685 Bushels of
Wheat Recorded for Last
. The Bureau of Statistics of thc Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture
has just issued thc final estimate of
thc acreage, yield and total production of the grain crops of the province, together with estimates of the
amount of land prepared for crop this
year, and of the number of livestock
in thc province:-
Thc acreage of wheat shows con-
I sidcrablc increase over that of 1918,
being 10,587,363, with an average
yield of 8.5 bushels per acre and a
total production of S9,993,6S5 bushels.
Four million eight hundred aud thirty-seven thousand, seven hundred and
forty-seven acres were sown in oats,
and yielded 23.1 bushels per acre, the
total production being 112,156,969
bushels. Barley was seeded to the
extent of 492,586 acres, and resulted
in a yield of 1S.2 bushels with a total
production    of S,970,501.    Flax    this
jycar was vcry disappointing in yield,
as 929,945 acres only yielded 4.8 bushels per acre, .or a total of 4,489,761
bushels. Winter rye is rapidly coming into favor with Saskatchewan far-

.. Irrigated Land Brings High Rental
Seven    hundred acres    of irrigated
land near Lethbridge, Alberta,    have
just been leased at a yearly rental of j merSj an(1 thc acrcagc of 190,482
twelve dollars a ycar. That land, shows a good increase over last ycar;
should bc rented at twelve dollars an j and although like other grains "the
acre in a country where fertile farm j yield was disappointing, yet it am-
land can still be bought outright at
this price is a tribute to thc value at

do not think you will havc any more

in   the   erection  of  skyscrapers."
Lord Northcliffc advances a further
reason   in   support  of  his   belief  that
ountcd to no less than 2,000,361 bushels, or an average of 10.5 bushels pcr
acre. Thc yield of peas, beans and
mixed grains amounted lo S50.000
bushels. Garden products and potatoes arc valued at $2,639,600, while thc
hay, corn and alfalfa realized 381,400
tons. Perhaps thc most outstanding

Vancouver Island
Poultrymen Organize
Lowering the Cost of Handling and
Distribution  y
To stabilize the market price of
eggs by lowering the cost of handling and distribution, and !fc safeguard
the consumer by placing a stamped
and guaranteed egg on - the'market,
five hundred poultrymen of Vancouver Island havc organized themselves
into a poultrymen's union.
Through the organization, Victoria
is to bc madc thc egg market for
thc products of Vancouver Island. At
present, Vancouver is the market
where the prices are set. Eggs* have
hitherto been sent from all parts of
thc Island through Victoria to thc
Vancouver market, and then some" of
them shipped back to thc Island to
supply the local demand.
Now the poultrymen of Vancouver
Island will deal only in the Victoria
market. This is expected to be beneficial to thcm as-well as thc. consumer, as it will provide one market for
lhcir products, and put an end to the
costly shipping from city to city.- -

..The old Dc Nilry place in Neuilly
proved to be precisely what Ruggles
walls, about   the
somc fine old trees, a flower garden,
a tennis court, stables, and a garage.
Thc house was spacious and modern
within, at-d therc was a pavilion, of
which- the upper story was a roomy
Ruggles -was delighted wilh the
place,.ano lost no time in securing it.
Being personally recommended to the
family by Mr, Falconer, an honored
friend of years' standing, he was en-
.. ablcd to rent thc houSe practically
In the meantime, Mr. Falconer ca1i-
cd upon Miss Challand. At first shc
would not hear of Ruggles's proposition. Darthea's sense of the bizarre
inclined her lo favor the idea, hut
Miss Challand rather'xrescnted Mr.
Falconer's, suggesting such a thing.
But when thc old gentleman assured
her that many women of his acquaintance, quite as well connected as she,
were constantly filling such positions
���which were, as a matter of, fact,
only open to people of birth and
breeding���Miss Challand began to
grow pensive,
c> For one thing, the !case# of their
apartment was  to expire in "thc aut-
-umn, and thcy had been informed that
thc rent was to bc laiscd a third. Miss
Challand had not been able to see just
- how they were going to be able to
afford to remain in Paris, and Darthea
was vcry loath to return to England.
And then the astute old gentleman
laid down his best card. Darthea was,
of course, expected    lo remain with
 her _aunt, _and_ Rugglec__would    feel
more lhan compensated for her cn-
'tainment in having hefore the eyes of
his wards such an admirable exponent
of what a well-bred jroung lady should
be.    If  Miss  Challand and  Darthea
would consent to become members of
the household, Rugglcs would place
>at their exclusive disposal the pavilion, with its studio, and the apartment
connected with it. He described the
studio, with its spaciousness and
splendid light, and the quiet beauty of
thc gardens.
t Darthea's studio had been her chief
despair. It ciamped and stifled her.
,During llie winter there were many
iwhjjle days when she had not thc light
simply | to work at all. But aside from thc
question of thc studio there were other considerations which inclined Darthea to favor Ruggles's proposition.
Onc was that she knew her aunt to
be depriving herself of many necessities of lifc in order that her niece
might not lack for the materials required in her work, such as good colors, canvases, brushes, and the like,
all of which are dear when of the best
quality. Miss Challand stoutly averred that she felt much better without
such luxuries as juicy steaks, cutlets,
chicken, sole, and the like, but it was
evident to Darthea lhat her aunt had
been for some time below her robust
normal, and thc girl ascribrj this to
thc" need of the proper amount of
nourishing food, well cooked and
served. Thc hope of selling a picture
alone had prevented her from economizing in the matter of materials.
Thc other and lesser consideration
was that Darthea had begun to find
life deadly dull. Art is not everything,
despite .what artists claim lo believe,
and Darthca, being young and full-
naturcd, sadly missed the recreations
of most girls of her'age. Shc was intensely interested in Ruggles and his
unusual household, and she could not
help but reflect on thc diversion to
bc obtained from being a member of
such an unusual menage.
So in the end, after man> long and
intricate arguments, lhc two ladies
gave their official acceptance of Ruggles"?-offer and were in due-timc installed in thc comfortable pavilion of
the De Nitry place.

The Comet, said Capt. Hamilton

in thc Australian Archipelago just before thc outbreak of war. She had a
powerful wireless installation, and
was intended for a lookout station for

World's Language
German and French Languages Have
Lost Their Place Through

In reply to the question addressed
by the Northern Peace Society to
prominent linguists iu various countries as to which language would be
the most suitable for world-wide use,
M. Carney professor of Louvain University, writes:
'"English would undoubtedly be thc
most suitable. The German and
French languages have lost their
place through the war. Thc English
language is a hospitable one, being a
kind of compromise between the Latin
and Germanic tongues; also it is simple and is spoken by most progressive
nations of thc world, and has one of
the most beautiful literatures of modern times."

Playing to a draw the Boundary
Braneh c?f the Great War Veterans
clashed with the Greenwood city
boys on local ice, on Friday laBt.
The Veterans' team was composed of all returned men, and the
city team was made up of some of
the team that won the Boundary
cup, also some promising intermediates.
It was a good game and the
teams were evenly matched. The
Vets had by far the heaviest men.
They were the favoritics with the
fans, but the Cits were well supported.
In the first period the Cits scored
one goal, the Vets scoring in the
second, J)ut before the second period was over the Gits scored again.
In tbe third period the Vets made
another tally, which left the score
two goals each. Five minutes
each way extra resulted in no
score, so the game was left a draw.
The line-up follows:
Vets.���Goal, A. N, Mowat; point
J. Morrison; cover point, R. Murray; rover, 0. Carlson, centre, G.
B. Grieve; lef wing, E. McMynn;
right wing, J. McCreath.

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,
you needn't slip  your clothes in 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 aud nobody shirks
Von can raise a town froni the dead. -
And if. when yoir 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.
