While tbe history of copper was
lost in the fogs and mists of antiquity, the metal was even known
to the cave dwellers, long before
iron. Ifc was the "Venus" metal
of the alchemists; the soft, yielding, ductile metal that alloyed
readily with nearly all other)
metals. .'
It is the basis of the brasses and
bronzes foand in the tombs of
Egypt, as ife is the basis of those of
the present day, with the one fact

the brasses and bronzes of today
are practically the same as those
produced more than three thousand years ago.
Innumerable attempts and " experiments have been made, looking ������ &ltv
to such an amalgamation of copper month,
and lead, in which, however, failure has been the inevitable result,
chiefly because of the widely differing melting temperatures and the
wide difference in the specific
gravity of the two metals.
Under all ��� ordinary conditions,
when lead and'eopper, in a molten
state, are mixed together, without ^ada amounts to about 170,000,-
- 000, bushels.
any other metal,  separation  and
liquation follows.
Even where a reasonably uni-
form^mechanical mixture' has been
effected, ife is only temporary for,
upon remelting, separation of fehe
two metals.always follows.
The discovery,  however,   of   a      	
process by which tins liquation or United States corn
separation is entirely overcome and 000,000 bushels,
which .makes possible a uniform,
homogeneous and permanent amalgamation of copper and lead, has
given the world an absolutely new
metal   of   tremendous   usefulness
and value���Kelly metal
This process is a truly revolutionary one, and, for the first time,
copper and lead, without any other
alloy, are now successfully amalgamated in a uniform mixture,
that can be remelted again and
again, with the remelted metal as
good as new metal; accomplishing
what, after generations of unsuccessful experiments and fruitless
research, had come' to be regarded
as impossible,
t, In this new metal, Kelly, metal,
"is ~found "the "'first" fundamental
change in producing brasses and
bronzes, since the earliest days of
Bome; a remarkable change in the
internal and integral structure of
an alloy that has never been obtained before.
A claim that a bearing will run,
afe high speed and with heavy load,
without any lubrication whatever,
and without damage to shaft or
bearing, would seem to be incredible.
Nevertheless, in a government
test, a bearing of this metal was
run, 3 hours and 41 minutes���
without any lubrication whatever���
at 1020 r. p. m. and with_**n 800
pound load, without the slightest
damage to the Bhaffe or bearing;
the report of this test states that,
at the end of the test, "an examination of the journal and bearing
showed both to be in excellent
Also a claim thafe a bearing can
be run without lubrication until a
temperature of more than 1300
degrees fahrenheiFhas been developed, with the bearing and journal
both, red-hofc, without melting the
bearing or the bearing freezing on
the shaft, would nofe, under any
ordinary conditions, be believed to
be possible, by any one familiar
with bearings and bearing metal.
Nevertheless, in a government
test, a bearing of.this new metal,
1\ inche long was run on a shaft
2 7-16 inch diameter, wifeh 1000
r. p. m. and 1000 pounds load, per
square inch, without lubrication,
until the temperature reached 1320
degrees fahrenheit, and the abaft

After being chilled by coid water
being turned on, with the fame
load continued, the report on this
test states 'tbat after the foregoing:
"Both the bearing and shaft
could have been put back into service, in first claaB condition."
��� As a result of this test, the report referred feo makes fehe following broad statement, which puts
another this new bearing metal in a class
of its own: "This metal will nofe,
even under extreme and normal
conditions, melt like babbitt or
freeze on the shaft like bronze.

(Continued.) .
Ruggles would never havc suspected that amongst his other gifts hc
possessed eloquence. Miss Challand's
tightened features' softened as she
stared at the flushed, boyish face. She
had never before considered thc
question of trade from thc viewpoint
so eloquently presented by Ruggles,
and her Britisii sense of fair play
forccd her to admit that it might bc
well taken.
"Miss Challand," said Rugglcs, "I
wish 1 could speak lo your, niece."
Miss Challand hesitated. She was
sorry for Rugglcs, but she could not
forget that he was a shoe clerk and,
even though promoted to thc charge
of a shop, must still, shc felt, bc separated from her niece by a social gulf
that admitted of no bridging. She
quickly reflected, however, that Rugglcs would soon bc leaving Paris for
Vienna, aftcr whicli thcy need sec no
more of him. Besides, hc had been
guilty of no actual fault, and for thc
sake of thc=.r past pleasant relations
it seemed ungracious fo send him off
with a snubbing. So shc answered a
little reluctantly:
"Very well. I'll-ask her. to comc
and listen lo what you have lo say,
Mr. Ruggles, though I doubt whether
you will bc able to change her attitude."
. "Oh, I don't know," said Rugglcs,
hopefully. "She's a sensible girl and
she must havc seen enough of me by
this timc to know that I'd never, try
to impose on her."
Miss Challand nodded, and rising
passed into the oilier room. Ruggles
stepped to thc window and stood
looking out across the Luxembourg
Gardens, Ten minutes passed.., Then
thc door opened and Darthea entered
the studio alone. Rugglcs, turning
from the window, thought hc had
never thoroughly - appreciated her
high-bred beauty.
��� "Good afternoon," said Darthca._
"My aunt, says that you insist ., on
-speaking to-me. Well, what "is, il?"
Rugglcs strong young heart, which
had been beating much faster,' though
���with less force, lhan if he had just
reached 'the top of thc Surcsncs hill
on his bicycle, slowed "as might havc
done that same machine on striking
a wintry blast of air at thc top of thc"
said ascent. '
"Nothing,"   said     Rugglcs"   shotlly,
"if you'd  rather not have me bother���
, .you"" '      .'
"I  tried lo  make that clear in  my
letter," Darthca retorted.
"Oh, .1 guess jou succeeded, all
right," Rugglcs" answered,-slung as
though he'had been, lashed across thc
. face with a dog whip. - Iu thc. .shop
his' patience was limitless, partly because he regarded . a customer, no j
matter   how   disagreeable,   quite     as |
man," Darthea replied.    "But I took
you for a gentleman."
"Well, and so I am," said Ruggles.
"What have I ever done that wasn't
gentlemanly, I'd like to know? What
1 told you about expecting lo represent a big American exporting concern in Austria was true. Why, I'm
expecting every day to get orders
from the home office to take thc
managership of one of our stores in
Vicuna; and believe me, Miss West-
brooke, it will bc just as fine an establishment, if nol finer, than our
Paris store that you came into yesterday."
Darthea gave a little shiver, yet
her eyes lingered on Rugglcs with a
sort of puzzled doubt.
"Ancl is lhat the height of your
ambition?" she asked, "lo bc in
charge of a shoe-shop in Vienna?"
"Il is, just now," Rugglcs answered stoutly. "Whal more can you
with bright eyes j expect of a man of my age? No
I doubt, later on, when I've madc
good, I may go gunning for something better. Vou can never tell; if
I ~oh, say, look here, Miss Wcst-
brooke, it's the same wilh all of us,
Just now you're working hard lo get
a picture hung in thc Salon���and you
sort of feel as if lhat was the height
of your ambition, don't you? Well,
suppose you do, -you're still only one
of thousands that get pictures hung
in thc Salon. You wouldn't be satisfied with that. Thc next thing, you'd
want a medal, or something, or a
picture bought by thc state and hung
in the Luxemburg. Well, it's just thc
same in business."
"1 must say," said Darthea coldly,
"I fail to sec any connection between
art and business."
"Tlicrc is, though," said Rugglcs,
stubbornly. "There's got to.be art
in everything that's made, I guess,
if you wan I to make il a success. And
there's got lo bc business in art, too.
The two things go together, just like
���like a man and a woman." Thc
color flooded his face.
"I fail to catch your meaning," said
Darthca, and quite untruthfully, for
shc had caught it perfectly, both in
its abstract and concrete senses.
"Well," said Ruggles, "it's like this.
Suppos'n' there was nothing bul artists iu the world? Who'd supply
their materials and build their studios and furnish tlicir food and
clothes, and, most of all, buy their
pictures? All that couldn't go on
withtful business. And, on llie-con-
traiy, if everything' was business,
wilh no such thing as art, the world
would bc like one big factory. It

How You Can TeU
Genuine Aspirin
Germans Are Trying To Hold    As
Many  As  Possible  With  The.
Thc New York Times says: By the
treaty the Germans promise to cut
down thcir army to 200,000 men, and
aftcr a ycar, when Sparlacus will presumably havc ceased to bc dangerous
to 100,000. Dispatches from thc
Rhine havc already told how thcy arc
evading tins provision by thc organization of home guards and police reserves, including hundreds of thousands of veteran soldiers and amounting virtually lo minutc-men ready to
be flung into line in any ncw war.
Bul even this is not enough. Now
Ihey arc trying to obtain exemption'
trom the requirement to cut down
their regular army to 200,000, on the
ground thai it would bc a hazardous
undertaking to discharge so many
trained soldiers all at once.
The American Army has been
brought back to this side of thc Atlantic, and most of it has put on
civilian clothes and gone to work,
lliis was done in response to an unmistakable popular demand. The
American^ people thought thc war
was over and wanted their troops
brought home. As rapidlv as possible the BritishGArmy is going back
ot civilian life, also in response lo a
popular demand. Demobilization in
France and Italy has moved more
slowly, because the French aud Italians arc much closer to the scat of
trouble and know, what it mcans to
bc invaded; but even in those countries there is strong pressure on the
Government lo disband the 'armies
and let everybody forget about the
But thc Germans are trying, not to
disband as many men as thcy can,
but to hold as many as possible with
the colors. Tlic Turkish .army was
theoretically beaten a year ago, but
the disarmament which was promised
seems to havc been incompletely
carried out. Today wc know that
Armenia is lo bc freed from' Turkey,
but wc hear lhat thousands of armed
Turks are in or near Armenia, and
that the Armenians have no war material with which to oppose thcm.
Wc can give Armenia freedom, but
thc Turks arc likely to wipe out llic
rest of the Armenians.
Wc havc been talking about the
disposition of Constantinople. Tlicrc
arc Allied military missions and food
missions in thc city, but according to
credible reports there is also a considerable Turkish army there. The
Turks are not prepared lo take thcir
defeat lying down: thcy madc some
resistance when thc Greeks occupied
Smyrna, and it is far from impossible
that the nation which gels Constantinople  will  havc  to  fight for  it.
The Burgarian army was thoroughly beaten a ycar ago, but the Bulgarians, loo, applied sabotage to the
armistice terms. There is still iu
Bulgaria a considerable force of veteran troops fairly well supplied with
munitions, andjhc Bulgarian's will
nol admit lhat thcy havc lost the
war until they arc forced to admit it.
There is danger that before long the
enemy whom our armies defeated a
year ago will have stronger forces in
thc field than we.
To America,-,which is four thousand ���=��!ilcs away, this may nave no
pressing interest, aud certainly no
immediate menace; what it may
mean in the long run is another question. But it is undoubtedly of an engrossing interest to the nations
which live next door to the enemy.
With conditions such as this, is jt
surprising "that the Roumanians finally took lhcir fate .into thcir own
ha;ids and went forth to abolish lhe
standing - menace on their northern
frontier? Thc conference was doing
nothing for them; thcy concluded to
do something for themselves. There
havc been no report's in thc last few
days that the Greeks, menaced by the
unquenched hostility of a Bulgaria
by no mcans disarmed,-and'kept out1.

Active Trade In Wool
Increase   of a  Million Pounds  Over
Business   of Last  Year
T. Reg. Arkcll, manager Canadian
Co-operative Wool Growcrsi Limited, announces thai present business
in wool is as active as it was at this
lime last ycar, and prices received in
disposal of that portion of the Canadian clip that is passing, through the
hands of thc company at Toronto
arc within 15 pcr cent, of Ihosc secured for the 1918 clip.
This big organization has already
disposed of 2,500,000 pounds of wool
this season, and will handle in all
.5,000,000 pounds of wool for Canadian
sheepmen before lhc ycar is out. This
is an increase of a million pounds
over the business of last ycar. Mr.
Arkcll reports an urgent demand for
wool in many quarters and expects
to havc thc bulk of. the sales transactions completed by'the middle oi
As regards lhc quality of thc wool
received compared with that of last
year's clip, Mr., Arkcll stales that the
western wool is of slightly weaker
staple, bul that thc shrink in the eastern uwools is lighter this ycar, owing
presumably to thc favorable, winter

dated sense. According to legitimate'
textual aud contextual signification it
is thc judgment of the living nations
which lies still in thc future (v. 32).
Tlic idea of a general judgment
which is of such frequent occurrence
in religious literature and teaching is
a fundamental error. It is not once
found in the Bible, neither the idea
which it is intended lo convey. Doctor Pentecost most distinctively says,
"lt is a mischievous habit that has led
thc Christian world to speak of the
judgment as being one great event
taking place at the end of the world,
when all human beings, sv.ints, sinners, Jews and Gentiles, the living
and the dead, shall stand up before
tlie. great white throne and tlicrc bc
judged. Nothing can bc more wide of
the Scriptures." Tlic Bible speaks of
different judgments, differing in respect to the subjects to be judged,
the place of judgment, thc lime of
judgment and the result of the judgment. This is not thc judgment set
forth in Revelations 20:11-14, but precedes that one at least one thousand
. I. The Judge (v. 31.).
It is the Son of Man, llic one who
came and died to redeem thc human
race, and who now being clothed wilh
majesty and power will act as judge.
Those who accept him now shall not
comc into thc judgment  (John 5:2-1).
II. Thc Timc (v. 31).
This will' be when the Lord comes
in   his  glory,  accompanied   by  a  retinue  of glorious  angels.     This  will
take place aftcr hc has gathered the
clccl remnant of  Israel.    There will
bc no resurrection in connection wilh
this judgment.
.111. Tlic Place (v. 31).
It will bc on his glorious throne.
This throne will bc most surely in
the land of Israel. The Prophecy of
Joel, third chapter, and Zcchariah 14:
1-5, make it to be in or near Jerusalem. The angel said to Mary:
"Thou shalt call his name Jesus; he
shall bc great and shall be called thc
son of the highest; ancl lhc Lord God
shall give unto him the throne of his
father David; and he shall reign over
the house of Jacob for ever, and of
his kingdom there shall bc no end."
(Luke 1:31-33). Just as there was a
literal place and a literal king there
shall bc a literal throne.
IV. The People ludged (vv. 32-
These will bc tiie living nations upon thc earth after lhe church has been
translated (l.'Thcss. '1:16, 17), These
arc the nations to whom the gospel
of thc kingdom shall bc preached
just prior to the coming of thc cid.
"And this gospel" of the-kingdom
shall bc preached in all the world for
a witness unto" all nations, and then
shall the end come" (Malt. 24:14).
This gospel is distinguished from the
gospel of the grace of God which is
now being preached. The preachers
of this gospel will bc Jews (Rev. 7
and Rom. 11). These arc the brethren in- lhc flesh, of the Lord, they
lhat move among the nations of lhc
world with the startling message of
the news of thc Lord's approaching
kingdom. Some of thc nations will
gladly receive thc message and 'most
kindly receive the king's uicsscngcr-3,
giving them clothing, food, shell cr,
etc. Others will persecute them,
thrusting them into prison, etc. Here
the- former- will visit -these-messengers of the king and provide for1 their
wants. At this timc thc judge will
separate thc ��� nations, placing thc
sheep on the right and the goats on
the left. The "sheep" are those who
havc given proper treatment to
Christ's brethren. ' Thc goats arc
those who rejected aiuPill-lreatcd his
brethren. .If these three classes, thc

Back To School
The schoolb' summer holidays arc
over for another ycar, and teachers
and pupils arc again occupying thcir
places in the little schoolhouscs^ all
over tliis piairic country, where thc
rcal foundations of Canada's future
citizenship are being laid.
But .while the teachers arc in thcir
places, something more than ten
thousand of thcin in thc three Prairie
Provinces, it is important to ask and
answer the cjiicstion whether all thc
boys and girls arc again in , school
who ought to be there.
Compulsory school.attendance laws
arc in force in these provinces, un
der which it is obligatory on parents
and guardians to s"ehd their children
to school until a certain age is
reached. These arc wise "laws, designed to prevent future citizens from
growing up to young manhood and
womanhood nol only uneducated, but
illiterate. In this western country
boys and girls arc wisely compelled
to lcam to read, write and- speak
English and master tlic rudiments of
a primary-common school education
Evcry ycar, however, some .thousands of boys and girls reach "the age
when thc compulsion of thc law en
forcing school attendance is lifted,
and it becomes a matter to bc decided by thc fathers and mothers whether Charles or John or Susie shall
return to school, . or whether thcy
will be kept al_ home to help on the
farm or in thc store or about the
house, or bc allowed to go out and
"get  a  job"   and   thus' help   to  keep
"the family. X
Il is a critical decision fathers and
mothers arc called upon to make.
Boys and girls, usually, arc anxious
to get. a way from the discipline, routine and what so many regard as the
drudgery of school, lt is not until
later years lhat thcy look back upon
thcir school days as the happiest,
most carefree days of thcir lives.    In
"their teens, however, thcy arc anxious
to go out into thc world and begin
life's great adventure. It is the parents who must decide wisely for
Aflcr all, as one observer has said,
it is just a mailer of arithmetic. If
a boy is just ready to enter high
school he can probably earn six or
eight dollars a week for thc first
ycar and an average of ten, twelve
or fifteen dollars a week for thc next
three ycars. That is to say, he can
earn from ��1,500 lo $2,500 if hc stays
away from school.
But lake lhc other side of the led-
���gcr: If~thc"boy continues-to-go_to
school for another three ycars he will
bc able, at the end of his course to
earn on the average more than thc
boy who stopped short of thc high
school, and hc will bc able lo earn it
for thc Ihirty or forty or fifty ycars
��� of liis earning lifc. Thc balance in
money is ou the sidc of thc boy who
returns to school.
Then comes along thc pessimist
and thc Job's comforter and says:
flWcll, if he goes back lo school and
gets cram full of book learning what
will il profit hi in? Docs not a plumber earn more than a schoolmaster,
and a carpenter more lhan a clerk?
And of what particular value will a
high school education bc lo John as
a farmer or to 'Susie as a farmei's
wife?" These arc unfair arguments
and illogical. Thc Irajucd eaipcntcr
and the skilled plumber having the
backing of a good education soon
forges ahead of his fellow carpenter
or  plumber   who  left  school  before
hc was half-way through. It is thc
educated man who succeeds in business for himself while thc uneducated ones become his employees.
And in this age and generation it is
not necessary to dwell on thc fact
that successful farming has become a
highly organized business undertaking-, a really scientific undertaking in
the carrying on of whieh ignorance
and siipbhod methods can have no
place, but in which the trained, intelligent, thinking men is pre-eminent.
Bul everything should not bc measured by the money standard. Is
there nol a better opportunity in life
for happiness, for contentment and
for service, for'the boy or girl possessing the qualifications and powers
which a good education confers upon
them? Tlicrc is a place in tlie lifc of
thc community, the Province, thc Dominion which only the educated can
fill, and in these days, and in the
years to comc, service to our country and to our fellow men is going to
Parents must ask themselves the
question whether, by withdrawing
thcir children from school before
thcy have secured lhe advantages of
a high school education, thcy arc
going lo deny lo Ihem the oppoilun-
ity of fitting themselves for thc rendering of such service, and df attaining thc place in the life of thcir
country which Ihey may otherwise
bc exceptionally well qualified lo fill.
Thc fathers and mothers of today
arc the trustees of the future citizenship of Canada. With them rests thc
decision now which may make or mar
their children's future, lt is a tremendous responsibility. The wise
decision will bc lo keep thcir boys
and girls at school just as long as
they can possibly do so, and thus
give to Ihem the best possible equipment for their lifc work, no matter
to what lot or sphere of action thcy
mav bc called.
Germans Prepare To
March Into Russia
A  Condition Due Entirely to Poor,
Watery Blood
The girl who returns home from
school or from work thoroughly lircd
out will bc fortunate if shc escapes a
physical breakdown, because this getting lircd so easily is probably the
first warning symptom of a thinning
blood that must not be disregarded if
her health is to be preserved.
When thc blood becomes thin and
impure the patient becomes thin, pale,
haggard and angular. She not only
tires out easily,, but suffers .from
headaches, palpitation of thc heart,
dizzy spells and a loss of appetite.
This condition will go from bad to
worse, until perhaps fatal consumption sets in, if prompt steps arc not
taken to increase and enrich thc
blood supply. To make thc rich, icd
blood that brings the glow of health,
no medicine yet discovered can equal
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. If given a
fair I rial tlicir usc brings rosy checks,
bright eyes, a good appetite and good
sp'irils. Dr. Williams' Pink Tills
havc madc thousands of pale, languid
girls active and strong. On thc first
sign of poor, thin blood, mothers
should insist upon their daughters
taking a fair course of these pills.
Thcy will nol only restore health, but
will save further doctor'bills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can bc obtained from any dealer in medicine or
by mail at 50 cents a box, or six
boxes for $2.50, from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockviile, Ont.

themselves and making preparations
for a march through Russia. Thcy
called themselves "Kolehakis," and

The Future British Navy
In its leading editorial, a recent
issue of "The Naval and Military
Record," speaking of the future development of the Britisii navy, said:
"The German fleet has disappeared
. . . and the only foreign power
which has augmented its navy upon
a largc scale is thc United, States.
In these circumstances it will not be
easy to hit upon a working formula
to represent our minimum needs.
"Wc might, of course, base our future building progiamines on the corresponding efforts made by"> the
United Stales, but the objection to
such a course is that il would imply
a rivalry in armament between the
very powers on whom the world relics lo prevent fresh wars. Few people in this country would approve a
naval policy which could in any sense
bc interpreted . as a threat lo our
friends  across  thc Atlantic."

With thc increase' in thc prices of
thc necessaries of lifc come demands
for increases in wages ��� demands
which are justified if there bc no

Upon the increase of wages there
follows close an increase in the
pi ice_of tlic-produclS- whosc_produc-
crs havc been accorded the increase
���nol a proportionate increase, for
the manufacturer docs not content
himself with that, but an increase
' considciably greater than thc added

wage cost is oftentimes hardly more
than  an  excuse.

Government i -���..--cs Would Indicate
a Production of Close to
18,000,000 Pounds
Thc wool clip of Canada for 1919
has been placed at 15,000,000 pounds,
according to early estimates, says thc
Manitoba Free Press. This lcprc-
scnts a very material increase over
last ycar, and probably marks the
apex of woo! production for the current decade. Government figures
would indicate a production of '-lose
to 1S,000,000 pounds, but this ' is
thought by well informed persons in
the wool trade to bc in excess of thc
actual clip. Thc 191S production was
12,000,000 pounds or thereabouts. The
sheep population has been incre^-.ed
by between 300,000 and 400,000. making the gain in wool production amount to between 2,000,000 and 3,000,-
000 pounds. The increase is believed
to be1" fairly evently distributed over
the entire country. This is fairly-
important from an economic standpoint, increasing the revenue lhat
will accrue, to lhc producers and enlarging the exportable surplus of thc
domestic staple.

Mining News
The government will rebuild the
wagon road and bridges, between
Erie and the Second Relief mine,
burned by the forest fire in July.
The road is 12 miles long, and
three bridges will have to be rebuilt.
There are about 200,000,000 tons
of iron ore already proven up in
Northern Ontario, immediately tributary to the Jines of railway
owned and operated by the Dominion Government. Tho iron mines
of Northern Ontario have produced
over 4,000,000 tons of iron ore, of
which about 50 per cent was exported to United States fu.nacee.
Millions of dollars have been expended in developing iron mines,
railways, hydro-electric power,
concentrating and roasting plants
a"nd ore docks, and with the slightest aid by way of bounty or the
imposition on foreign ore duty
placed on manufactured goods coming into this country, these and
other iron mines would be enabled
to produee one million tons annually.
On this continent, Canada alone
has extensive coal areas on the
shores of both the Atlantic and
Pacific Oceans, adjacent to large
iron mines. Canada possesses over
75 per cent of the known nickel
resources of the world. Slip ranks
third in the production of silver.
Her copper, zinc, lead and asbestos
mines are extensive. We have
fine deposits of magnesite in Canada; uur carbon electrodes are
second to none, and cheaper than
those produced in England.
Everything calls for Canada to rise
to the first rank as a producer of
high-quality steels to displace the
heavy, short-lived common carbon-
steels used in rolling stock, ships,
dredges, farm and other machinery,
and become one of the principal
exporting countries of the world.

Millions of dollars have been expended on the extensive low-grade
copper deposits of Bruce Mines,
Massey, Herminia, Jury, Superior,
Michinicaten, Big Duck Lake, Tip
Top Mine Centre and Shebandowan
District under the direction of able
and experienced British, American
and Canadian capitalists. Now
that-: the British government,
through the British-American
Nickel Company, bias erected a
copper refinery in Canada, many
of these copper deposits could be
operated if the Province or Dominion wculd aid in the erection of.
local smelters and guarantee a certain minimum output,-sufficient to
secure economical operation of the
several mines. The Dominion
could perform the assessment work
on valuable mining. claims discovered ^by returned soldiers for a half
interest therein, and aid iiTsecur-.

copper mines, could. give employment to hundreds of returned

There was a picturein the papers recently of Enid Bennett,
movie star, using the telephone. Miss Bennett is'afine actress,
and she surely knows how to use a telephone, - but in this illustration she had her" face turned away from the transmitter.
Perhaps she was posing, but it might have suggested to some
that her method was the proper one when telephoning.
When you telephone, talk directly into the instrument,
with your lips an iuch or more from the transmitter. Then
you will have to talk in an ordinary tone and the person at
the other end will be able to hear you distinctly.
