Scotch Ham
When two old Scottish housewives met one morning, one asked
the other what was in a parcel she
was carrying.
"Oh, it's just some ham," was
the reply. "I always buy my
ham from Mr. McDougal's shop in
the town. My husband is rather
particular, and he likes this kind
of ham." The other said her husband was particular also, aud she
thought she would-try the ham.
So off she went t& McDougal's
shop." l'I want some ham," Bhe
said." What kind of ham?" the
shopman asked her. "Oh, the
same kind that Mrs. Robertson
gets." McDougal smiled and
leaning over the counter, whispered, "Where's your bottle"

Commencement- of the government sale of liquor in British Columbia is now delayed indefinitely,
according to a report from Victoria.
"There are many problems the
board has to deal with yet," said
Colonel Winsby. "There is now
no chance of us getting the system
started early in Jane. If we get
it started after July 1 we will be
doing well."
James H. Falconer of the board,
who has been covering the communities in southern British Columbia and along the line of the
Canadian Pacific, returned to Victoria on Sunday, with information
on which appointments of staffs
and selection of warehouses and
offices may be based.
Members of the board declared
that the new federal taxes on
liquor would hit the British Columbia liquor board hard. -The
new taxes will greatly increase the
cost and selling price of liquor in
this province, tbey said, and because of that will cut the quantity
sold and consequently the business
of the board and the profit the
province will make.

How Prospectors
May Get Powder
Included in the estimates passed

$10,000 to-provide assistance for

in the purchase of the powder needed for the initial development of
mineral claims staked in the
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, has had under consideration
regulations' to govern the disbursement of this aid. He haB approved
a set of rules which, taken as a
whole, should assure the equitable
administration of the fund.
The procedure laid down in this
connection is very simple. Applicants have to comply with a few
clearly explained conditions to obtain a rebate on /��� the powder they
use in the opening up of their properties "of 25 per cent, of the legitimate cost of such powder."
The rules referred to may be
summarized as follows:
That applicants prove to the satisfaction of a mining recorder or, a
resident mining engineer that they
are "bona fide mineral prospeot-
The grants will be made on a
basis of not more than ' ten cases' of
powder to each applicant in one
That an additional- amount may
be allowed to a prospector in one
year "under exceptional circumstances," and on the written recommendation of a resident engineer of the Department of Mines.
That the applicants shall sign
declarations, upon forms supplied
by the Department "of Mines',' setV
ting forth the legal description of
the ground on which powder has
been used and the number of cases
of explosives actually used in prospecting such ground.
That applications shall be signed
in tbe presence of and witnessed by
one of the following persons, viz.:
A mining recorder, a deputy min>
ing recorder, a justice of the peace,
or a resident engineer of tho De* -
partment of Mines.
Upon receipt of such declaration,
with invoice of the powder purchased, a subsidy will be paid to
the extent of 25 per ceut. of the
retail cost of the powder.
Special 'attention is called to the
terms of the last clause. It meaus
that, if powder is bought in centres
where it is comparatively cheap,
the rebate or subsidy will be based
on such cost. Should it be purchased, however, at interior points
at a higher price the percentage
will be figured on the higher cost.
This is of more advantage to prospectors thau a straight rebate per

Xne Lamp In
The Window
By Frank Wall
It was just a little cottage, standing in a corner of what had once />cen
old John Humphreys' farm. John
Humphreys was dead and thc farm
bad becn merged long ago in the magnificent grounds of thc house built by
some unknown millionaire on the
crest of the hill.
There were all kinds of rumor's
about that house, but the only facts
were that no one had ever seen lhe
owner or had even heard his name.
The house ,a palace in white with
broad terraces and smooth sloping
lawns, was exquisitely furnished, but
only the caretaker and the scrubwoman enjoyed its perfections. Day
by day and year by year it stood there
drowsing in thc warm sunshine, and
at night the moon played quaintly
about its white walls and cast long
slanting shadows across the lawns;
and that was the only sign of life
there for almost twenty years.
The little cottage stood near the
road and was occupied by old "John
Humphreys' son. Hc kept himself
aloof from his neighbors and was not
very popular. They said hc had no
social ability, no human feelings, and
perhaps they were right. Ordinarily
his face was like a mask, but when
sunset came and hc placed his little
lamp in the window overlooking the
road, it softened into an extraordinary tenderness. If thc neighbors
Could havc seen him then, thcy might
havc changed thcir opinion of him.
And this had gone on for nearly
twenty years. Every night hc lighted
thc .little lamp and when hc had lighted it he sat by the window watching
and watching and watching for some-"
one who'never.came.
Sometimes there were noisy parties
who .-had ���motored, down 'from- New-
York,    which' ���  was   -only, fifty miles
.-away, and thcy would come and ask
for somcthing-to cat;     He' gave them
thc best he had, and.then he would go
' back to his corner and stare' down die'
unanswc.iing road.-.     .'-.   -    -      -' ..
One ' night   a furious storm broke
.over that part of the country. 7   The
' rain . came down in. torrents and flic
livid flashes of-lightning made thc big
-house" 011.".the.;hill appear. even"vm'ore.
���  impressive and' beautiful.      After-he
_ had lighted his little lamp, he.stood
watching :thc storm, and'it was'.whilc
hc was so occupied that he saw an
automobile    toiling  .'painfully ^up'the
steep slope of the road.   It'came to a
. standstill'opposite the'   cottage-'and

Thcy-were all young.except one, a
���- very- beautiful "woman- of; about" forty
"years of age.'     The others, addressed
her as Madame Lesia,'and the. cotta'g-

fcrcncc: that ;her >yildncss seemed-to
.be forced: " It was as though-it strug-.
-. gled all ..the- time -with' some deeper

of her heart had been- touched and she
-wished to"hide it;-   -V-   . .' 7 -'"'
������" "Let'us ask- Madaiu'e" Lesia," cried
��� .oric .in- the*mi.dst'.of'.a furious, argument; and. the singer :turncd'smilingly.

"I, .don?t .".know,":she murmured, "I"
: wantlto be famous but I'want to be
j happy too. Is it not possible to bc
I both, Madame?"
The singer was staring at a photograph that stood on a side-table. It
was a girl of perhaps twenty-three or
twenty-four years of age, dressed in
some cheap material, obviously -village-made, but one scarcely noticed
that for thc transfiguring happiness
that shone in her face.
"Do you see that girl " shc said
quietly. "Do you notice how plainly
she is dressed? And that cheap little
wedding ring at which she is staring
so intently? That girl isn't famous
and yet she looks happy. And 1,"
shc added, as though speaking to herself, "I am what you call famous, but
I am not hoppy."
The cettagcr had left his corner by
the window, as though drawn by the
sadness in thc singer's voice. "That
is my wife," hc said hoarsely. "We
lived near here, but the lure of New
York crept like a poison into her
veins. She thought shc could become famous and shc left mc."
"Some day perhaps ..." said
the singer softly.
"Every night I light my little lamp
in thc window and watch for her return," said thc man passionately. "Always I hope that shc will conic back
to the simple happiness she cast aside
for the glitter you call fame."
Madame Lcsia rose suddenly. "We
all hope so," shc said earnestly. "Sec,
my friends, thc storm is over. Who
will prepare the car for thc journey
The young men of thc party raced
out all at once and the girls followed
a moment later. Madame Lcsia turned to the cottager. Her eyes were
shining. "Thcy told me you had
gone abroad," she said.
Thc man lifted his hands in a gesture of despair. "For twenty years
I have waited here," he said. "And
now . . . you have come back,
but you arc famous. This humble
life will appeal to you Jess than ever."

Thc dragging of a woman out of
her humble home, in thc dead of
night and shooting her to death,
heedless of her pitiful appeals for
mercy, and riddling her poor body
with bullets under thc open sky���
surely this is not Ireland! Certainly,
it is not the Ireland of history, in
whose pages we find chivalry and
tenderness and pity and gallant service rendered to worthy causes by a
high-spirited race, who thrill to what
is high and poetic, and find a catch
in the throat for all things lovely and

The British Empire is becoming
more and more the.source of supply

is due, nototo any increased output

alone. On an average we lose something, like seven days a year from our

The Country Life Problem
Will Not Reduce
Military Preparation
Not long ago, says a writer in the "Problems of Democracy" department of The Literary Digest, a well-known traveler and writer was being
shown through the immense Capitol building of a Middle-Western State.
"Just see the great army of officials''wc employ," said his guide, "every!man
of them was born on.a farm." And then the/visitor.w.as shown through a
quarter of the city where "you can go.a'mile and see only the homes of rehired farmers/'    .Quoth the guide, "Thisis a wonderful farming State."
Yet, comments the Literary Digest, writer.,the boys on its farms dream
of jobs in town, and old folks on' its'farms' dream of homes, jn town, and,
as soon as they can arrange it, hire somebody else to run the farm, and
move away. In less "wonderful" farming,States, meanwhile, you 'occasionally see farms abandoned outright, but even thc custom of farming by
proxy is deplorable.
In "The Country Life Movement," Mr. L. H. Bailey observes, "Farming by proxy or by any absentee method is as disastrous in the long run
as the doing of any other .business by proxy. I hold that it is essential I time havc -sufficiently trained to take
that the vcry\best people live actually on the.land. The crops are there, the place of the older class, it is con-

must.be constantly with it and manage it.   ' A farm is not like a store or aj ���:	
factory that is shut up at night and on Sunday. The more difficult and
complex thc farming business becomes, tlie greater will bc thc necessity
that a good man remain with it."
"The fundamental need," declares Mr. Bsiley, "is to place effectively
educated men and women in the open country."     In his opinion all else de-
'pends on this.     No formal means can bc of anypcrmancnt avail until men

But do the young people thus trained return  to the open  country?
Some, of them, of course, but a lamentably small percentage of the.total.
Why not. a larger number?     Docs farming pay?     Is life in the open country attractive?     Farming has its off years,"and sometimes scries of years,) mav   terminate    the   agreement

But the same thing is true of business! generally.     And assuredly farming     'The convention states that it is to

generally rriay not be quite so favorable as in the years before the warjbut
neither arc condition's in the cities as favorable, with thousands of men
out of employment.      Such a situation is, however, only temporary; it will
be overcome both in city and country.
Life in thc open country is not as attractive as-it should be for other
reasons. The recreative life of the country community greatly needs to bc
stimulated. Not dnly games and recreation days need to be encouraged,
but thc spirit of relief from continuous and-deadening toil must be encouraged.     Thc country population needs to he livened up.
How is this awakening to be brought about? ..The small towns and
villages, which" arc the real centres of all country districts, and whose very
existence depends upon their surrounding farming communities, havc a duty
and an opportunity in this respect. In his admirable book, "The Little
Town," Mr. H. P. Douglass devotes a chapter to "The Town's Country."
Says Mr. Douglass, "Thc town's country is the area which trades with it;
which makes common cause with it in buying and selling, in'credit and!
transportation facilities." Its typical functionaries' arc" the retail merchant,
thc banker, thc postmaster, thc doctor, the implcnjcnt agent, thc railway
Moreover, the town's country is thc area which comes to it for play,
education and worship. Here arc the country's moving- pictures, its exhibition and sports grounds, and its Chautauquas. The country's high
schools are here, and most of its ministers of religion live here. Here,
though thc farmer may not directly share in them, are,those..sbcial groups
and activities which hc imitates and possibly envies. - Most of the social
organizations to which hc mayibclong centre'here.
Therefore, the small town has a duty to-its own particular "country."
And the opportunity is as great as thc duty. Among th_c chief needs of
thc farming community today is wholesome recreation. There is little
community life in the open country, except what centres in thc small towns
-and villages. '--'Its-lack constitutcs-what.-oneinan- has"called-"the*in'tolerabie
condition of country life.'"     In almost every other respect, life in the open
country has improved.      It is a less isolated life.     'Railways, telephones, I forest  rcservcs  of   Western   Canada,
automob.lcs havc greatly relieved loneliness.    .But is it a jollier life?  . No  six aeroplanes will bc used in South-

Necessary That
Canada Should Grow
Nation   Must   Have   Men,  But
Undesirable Ones.
Both war debt and the railway" situation require that Canada must
grow, in the opinion of the Journal of
the" Canadian Bankers' Association,
which says that to grow up to these
we must "people the vacant;spaces."
However rigorous the United States
may bc hi; immigration regulations,
due to the fact that thcy are approaching the saturation point, Canada's policy, the Journal states, can
well afford to differ from that, of her
neighbor. .    '
"It is well jfo remember," the Journal adds, "that a prosperous and advancing country has a greater digestion capacity than a stagnating
country.' Let lis winnow out individual undesirables, . . . but men
wc must have; Not least, wc must
seek to keep our own sons from drifting southward."   ���'."���'

���where a jaw has been fractured
either by a fall, or in boxing, or football, or in almost any sport���and thc
patient has never known it, and it is
only by an X-ray examination for
some other condition that the scar is
discovered and it is realized that at
some previous period the jaw had
been broken.
Usually a broken jaw is very difficult to hold in place until it unites.
Where 'the pieces are not properly

Thc fibrous union- is a sort of a cartilage or gristle that grows across the

When a jaw is fractured it is absolutely-necessary to get a good bony
union, s^d that the jaw will bc as
strong as ever.
Duruig thc war there were a great
many cases of fractured jaws from
gunshot wounds, from explosion and
shell lire, falling out of airplanes and!
so forth, and much was learned in re-���
gard to bone formation that was not
known before.
When a jaw has been injured and
remains tender for any length of time,
it should be X-rayed very carefully
to find out whether or not there has
becn a fracture.
