This section of  the movement
is taking a good interest and attending regularly.    Time is now
found to introduce  games along
"Twin Beds"
with the work and the youngsters September and October withdraw-
show a great enthusiasm with both.   aiB broaght the  fifiure down   to
819,000,000 at the end of last
month. Of that amount it is estimated that abont 300,000,000
poundB will be needed for export,
leaving 519,000,000 pounds available for domestic consumption.
In other words, the surplus is
rapidly approaching limits that
will remove the menace overshadowing the market for over a
year. It is not believed, however,
that there will be complete resumption, of production by the big
companies until next summer. Before that time some of the lower
cost companies will doubtless resume, thus -catting down the proportionate rate of withdrawals from
JurpluB. In any event, there is no
doubt that the future is consider-
ably brighter than it has been for
many months.���Spokane Mining

sion of the stage success of the
same name by Margaret. Mayo and
Salisbury field. The play, a bedroom farce_comedy, was extremely
popular and enjoyed a long run on
Broadway, and with companies on
the road, over a period'of two
years.
Mr. and Mrs. DeHaven are
starred in the piece, which adapts
itself admirably, to their talents,
and in the supporting cast, besides
William Desmond, are Helen Ray-
mend, who created the role of
Signora Monti in the original stage
production, Katherine Lewie,
William J. Irving and Lottie
Williams,
* The plotof the' picture revolves
about the marital relations of a
flirtatious Italian tenor, and the
complications ensuing when he
gets in the wrong apartment and
sleeps in another man's bed.
There is an abundance of clean,
wholesome comedy in the farce,
which is the First National attraction at the Greenwood Theatre on
Saturday.

The metal has shown a much
better tone during the past two
weeks, with foreign buying at
higher levels than in recent
months. Domestic demand has
fallen on slightly, but it is believed
stocks in the hands of manufacturers are so short that buying will
be resumed at fair level almost immediately, although there is a possibility of easing up during the
holiday weeks. There is now no
donbt that big holes are being
made in the surplus from month
to month and tbat the end of the
present inactivity is in sight. It
is figured that on September 1 surplus, was   942,000,000    poundB.

What One Boy Did
Little  Country Boy Worked  His Way
To the  Top
i    Tho death is announced of Amos K.
Fiske, .formerly an editorial -writer on
ithe New York Times and the author
| of   many   books.     There   are   some
! things in the story of his life which
,are worth noting by even those who
have never  heard of him.      He was
���bom on a farm and spent bis early
boyhood there and in a village cotton
: factory where he worked as a "bob-
jbin boy" from the age of ten to thirteen.     At the age of fifteen he was
���left   an   orphan   and without means,
ye he worked his way   through   college, studied law, was called   to   the
bar and finally became a distinguished journalist and author. Parents who
argue that there is no use in giving
an   education   to a child who has no
expectation   of   making   a   living by
his education should make a note of
this case.     It did not look as if there
was much of a future  for the little
.J farm or lad who had become a "bob-
,'bin boy" in a cotton factory. But who
'can tell what'is ahead of any boy in
this   world   of  opportunity?      Every
boy should have the advantage of.at
least as much schooling as will enable
.him to know the meaning and value
of education and leave him with thc
i desire and the ability to continue the
���work of education after
days are over,

Canada -s Opportunity
Feelings of unrest and thc state of depression which have prevailed in Canada arc but a reflex of similar conditions throughout
the world, and thc cause can be attributed very largely and directly
to conditions brought about by the Great War. Only through a
general improvement in world conditions can a permanent betterment be effected, but in the bringing about of that general world improvement each nation has a part to play. In addition, each nation
must assidiously-sct to work to overcome existing difficulties and
find a solution for present problems as they arc found to exist in each
particular country.
Thc conference on the limitation of armaments at Washington
is one important step towards bringing about what cannot fail to bc
a vital factor in reducing thc burden now imposed on thc economic
structure of the world, and in lowering the tremendous load of taxation levied on all peoples. Aside from thc enormous reductions to
be effected in war expenditures, thc agreement for limitation of
armaments, which now seems assured, will havc an even more beneficial effect because the result must be to greatly reduce thc danger
of war in the future, thereby giving confidence and stability to world
finance, trade and commerce.
The successful outcome of thc negotiations between the British
Government and the representatives of.Southern Ireland is a second
and enormously important step towards a rehabilitation of confid- King George Wins At Stock Show
encc throughout the English-speaking world. It means much to !
the whole British Empire as it removes the one great danger spot
of friction and ill-will within the Empire. The solution of the Irish
problem also means a betterment in the relations between the Empire and the people of the United States, and this is of thc greatest
importance to Canada and cannot fatl to havc a steadying and bene-
cial effect in this Dominion.
A third event, bound to have a good effect on business conditions throughout the Dominion, is thc holding of the general election the Royal Agricultural Hall and was
in this country, when, for the first time in a decade, thc people have conspicuous also as a prize winner,
had a free and untrammelled opportunity to pass judgment on questions of purely domestic policy. Until a A'erdict of the people"\vas
obtained there was bound to be a considerable degree of political
unrest and business uncertainty.. The people of Canada had become divided into several groups on economic questions and the impression prevailed generally that for a period of years it was going
to be extremely difficult to carry on government in this country
without resort to log-rolling and the making of dangerous compromises. 'This inevitably had an adverse effect on business and the
people as a whole.
Quite apart, therefore, from any consideration as to which one
of the three political parties has emerged victorious from tlie battle
of thc ballots, people are breathing a sigh of relief, that one of the
three has been given a sufficiently large following in the new Parliament to enable it to direct and carry on the business of government;
This, in itself, is bound to have a good effect in removing the formers
uncertainty, and with the.ending'of the uncertainty there will follow
a removal of much unrest. Depression will thus, to a very considerable degree," give place to confidence, and with increased confidence a renewal of activity will follow. * '
It remains now for each community and individual citizen to
loyally accept the verdict of the majority, and for all to join hands advanced,

swing Canada into an .era of prosperity for all.
Canadians should enter into this great national work with" stout
hearts and a will to succeed. "It can be done." The divisions and
feelings engendered in thc past should now be buried with that dead
past. What' is required is a united Canada; a Canada with a forward look; a Canada imbued with optimism; alive'with energy,
thrilled with a-national enthusiasm, and inspired with a true Canadian national spirit. It means that every Canadian must work and
work hard,'and it must be the business of government and of every

Doubt Helicopter Proving Practical TRjch Embroidery Trims a
New Landowners In England
Criticism -of Expert Includes Review
of Machine's Imperfections
Doubts as to whether the helicopter
will revolutionize flying and .become
'. really a challenge to the airplane are
expressed by Major C. C. Turner, edi-
jtor of Aeronautics, late'officer in the
I Royal Air Force",'in an article contributed by him to the London Observer.
Experiments with helicopters���machine with horizontal screws giving
vertical if ascension���are being carried
on in many countries, and in Great
Britain, the United States and France,
are helped by the respective governments. The results of late have been
far more encouraging to the inventors
than were those obtained before the
war, due to some extent to the air-
j plane research under the stimulus of
the worjd conflict. .   ������
Major Turner, however, states that
references to helicopter' experiments
are often sensational. It is made to
appear that vertical flight Is what
1 the whole .. aeronautical world is
I breathlessly awaiting and that it will
.revolutionize flying, since it would
enable machines lo land on flat�� roofs
'and to hover over an enemy. Major

"A vendor came to my home the

foods which he'said "he was selling on
commission, for a wholesale house. I
felt very sorry for this man, and so I
bought a number of things from him.;.
So did my neighbors. We never
heard of any of the brands beforehand
so we are wondering if they contain
adulterants. I am enclosing a list of
the foods. Could you tell me of any
simple method by which a housewife
can detect adulterants?"
So writes a woman who probably
tried to help in the problem of unemployment and yet has the health of

teaspoonful of the extract. If the
real lemon is present it will come 6ut

an oily layer on the top of the water.
If the solution remains clear after
diluting with water very little, if any,
oil of lemon is present.

To test for artificial coloring in jellies is the same test that we use for
artificial coloring 'in candies. Place
some of the sample in water.and boil
to dissolve "it. Place in this liquid a
few pieces of white woolen yarn and
boil for five or ten minutes, Stirling
occasionally. Remove the yarn and
wash "in hot water. If it remains
brightly colored the presence of artificial dyes Is shown. To make the
more certain,, boil, the yarn so
colored in diluted ammonia for five
minutes. The artifiicial coloring matter-will dissolve-in ammonia.
If this is colored, add hydrochloric
acid drop by drop until, the solution
is acid, as test-ed by blue litmus paper.
In this' solution now place some fresh:
white yarn and boil. "Remove and
wash in water. If the yarn is color-

proved positively.  .

Professor Dugan of Princeton College
Gives Some Particulars
The new planet discovered recently
by Dr, Hartmann, of the University.
of La Plata, Argentina, South America, is an asteroid of about two miles
in diameter, according to Prof. R. S..
Dugan, of the Princeton University
Department of Astronomy. This
planet is one of about a thousand
which have been discovered in the
constellation cetus during the past
century, the professor pointed out.
"These asteroids move between the
earth and. the stars and lie between
the orbits of Mars and Jupiter," said
Prof. Dugan. "The chief points of
interest 7 concerning them are their
locations; whether near or far from
the earth, their size and the peculiar
paths in which they move, they are
comparatively^ small; ranging in diameter from one-half to several hundred miles, and their average distance from the earth is 250,000,000.
miles." '        - '    -"."'"

The Boundary Social Life
"Tile Boundary is alright; it is a
place where everyone takes in his
neighbors washing." We overheard these remarks passed by a
stranger some time ago. After
several weeks of thought we have
come to the conclusion that the
description, although it may not at
first seem a polite one, hits the nail
on the head. Surely what the
visitor meant was, that the great
yX, (,Money," or rather the
superabundance of it held no sway
''.���-.'- e, for it is an excellent com-
I'-raty, composed of all sorts,
i verybody or nearly everybody,
doing some sort of work, no
one ashamed of any work he can
find to do, no loss of caste, in fac*,
the absence of snobbery. It simply means that no honest labor
thould be looked down upon that
fill snobbery should be, once and
for all, abolished from the face of
the earth.
The life of the Boundary fits in
. and carries out well the right kind
of life to lead in this world, working side by side with one's fellow
workers, no . honest labor being
despised, with all the pride of work
but with no loss of caste. We do
not say that snobbery does not ex-
isfc'jin the Boundary, it probably
does, but snobs are few and far
between. ""  ���
- The general social life, , the willingness to help each other, the
general unconventionality are the
general outstanding good points
of' the, Boundary district' society;
a stranger is very Boon made to feel
at home, and the absence of formality to any great extent is what
appeals to human nature which has
been able - to cast off' the society
shackles.
The wooden houses of the Boundary district are .well adapted for
the wife who has to do all her own
. household   choree.      Undoubtedly
the life is much   harder for-the
women folkthan.for the.men; there.
y-., is .more monotony,- less variety Vof
V-_ occupation, less fresh air in \thei_r
life:    Their work  seems to b�� so
;   incessant,7but perhaps this is due
7to lack of-system,', for with  more
"method, the ;.work  could be done
quicker and more free time obtaiH-
7. ed.    There is no doubt,, howeyer,-
tbsu. it is a hard life for the women,
,:'".��� ��� t they must ,-be admired for their
.'���'���al cheerfulness and for being
.  7. .Tjpy and contented in it all.
y; ; At any rate,  they are compar-
-..'"Vive'ly  free fronr the shackles of
V>-bion  to which  their eisters in
7o'7r-,;r p^rfe. are such slaves.    New
; -clothes and new fashions aire not so
necessary in the Boundary, but, in
���   spite of; it, if one goes tofja dance
or social or & party,  one sees that
Ihe feminine mind can  still turn
but a smart and prett attire.;,   7
To end  this diegression let 7" us
siy,.that the delightful  freedom,
V ta'e - absence7 of 7eq,- many conven-
\,:tions,%nd. ihe^sfeple^life 7and;tbe

Questions and Answers on Forestry
(By the Canadian Forestry Association)
Q. If Canada is so concerned in forest conservation and the
timber supply is rapidly decreasing, why not stop the cutting of
Christmas Trees? '
A. . Because the Christmas tree custom is too beautiful and to
well established to be interferred with. All the Christmas trees
cut in Canada every year would only represent a few square
miles of forest, and in comparison with the forest fires of just a
single province in any one year are of infinitessimal account.
Most Christmas trees are cut by farmers from lands they need
as pasture, and it means a handy source of revenue for many
a worthy family. Let's be reasonable about tree cutting.
Don't let us disturb the joys of Christmas until we have done
more to block the ravages of the real tree destroyer, the fire
fiend. -
Q. -Is it possible to cut a spruce or balsam to secure a good
Christmas tree without killing the parent tree's growth?
A. Quito easy. Cut tho tree oft just above the lowest whorl
of branches and then trim off all other of the remaining branches
except one. The latter will grow erect rapidly and gradually
establish itself as the main tree trunk. In this way, a plantation of spruces can be kept producing Christmas trees indefinitely.    The plan is in effect in several parts of the United States.
Q. How far apart should trees be planted to form a shelter
belt about a farm or school property?
* A. Four faet apart each way. This will give you a dense
shade in a few years sufficient to kill the grass underneath. If
planting in districts where there is abundance of moisture you
can afford to space the trees farther apart.
Q. What is the value of the maple sugar and syrup crop in
Ontario and Quebec per annum? .  _
A. You will be surprised to know that it goes up to eight
million dollars a year.    Most of this is credited to Quebec.
Q. I am a Mauitoba farmer. Is there any arrangement
whereby I can get free trees for planting?
A. Yes. Write Tree Planting Division, Indian Head;- Sask.
and you will get full particulars.
Q. If I put on a roof of wooden shingles do I have more
insurance to pay?
A. As you are an Ontario man, you can lay
asbestos paper underneath your shingles and get
the same rate as a slate- roof. The 'scare' regarding inflammability of wooden shingles is due to the
use of poor cheap grades of shingles, that curl ..at
the edges. Really high grade wooden shingles are
a minor fire menace. ,' ,
Rod and Gun
The Christmas issue of Rod and
Gun in Canada .is particularly attractive and is replete with many
stories which will appeal to the
heart of the ' true sportsman.
Allen E. Kerr's - 'Trout Hunting
on the Kenogami and -Keniogame-'
sis" as the opening article 0will
prove a realistic tale, while the
ever popular F. V, William's and
Bonnycastle Dale's narratives- are
of.the usual high standard,- The
article by A. F. Wallace entitled
,(Clam and Pearl Fish" will undoubtedly be of vivid . interest aB
well as instructive. Guns & Ammunition, Along the Trap-line,
and FisbiDg Notes, contain several
articles valuable to the various
"readers. Rod "and Gun in Canada
