While mining in the Siocan district is extremely-quiet at present,
there is optimism aB to the spring
activities," said Arthur Lakes,
mining engineer, to the Spokesman Review, Spokane, on his return from" a professional trip to
Nelson. "The O. B. U has been
broken completely, largely due to
the competition of an excess of
labor. There are three-men for
every job jnst now. The fact that
the strike which has held, the district in idleness most of the summer and fall is over makes for a
much better feeling and hope for
the spring."
Copper   at   13��   cents a pound
represents  the lowest price since
1915, when it sold down to 13.64c.
The 13J cent price is about 2 cents
above the  normal selling price of
the metal before the European war
and 4f cents above the lowest price -
reached  Bince  1860,   which-' waB 9
cents a pound -in 1893.    However,
in those days the industry was not
confronted    with   abnormal   costs
and taxes nor a big depreciation in
the   buying   power   of the dollar
Everything    considered,   the   red
metal is really selling at the lowest-
price in its history,   says the Wall
Street Journal.    The highest price
reached during  the civil  war was

reached during the'European war
was 31,89c a pound,

She lifted her head quickly and gazed up at him; but he did not meet her
"I'm going on to the house, Willow," he said abruptly. "You needn't
come until you're ready."
He turned away and strode up the
trail. Half-way to the Cabin he met
Danny Farney who had just returned from Lookup with thc mail.
Dorkin took the letters and papers
from the boy, answering thc question
in his eyes with: "Willow is down
yonder by the new beaver dam,
Danny, planning how she's going to
keep thc otters from coming in and
making a clean-up of thc baby beavers."
Danny turned away; then paused.

"Onc final appeal to Ottawa should

Stewart, of Alberta, in discussing at
Winnipeg thc forthcoming re-opening
of negotiations for the transfer of natural resources from Federal to Provincial control.
Premier Stewart thinks each province should present its own case individually at Ottawa. Owing to the
varied character of thc settlements
which would have to bc made in respect of subsidy, he thought, separate action would bc best.
Thc premier admitted that in view
of thc greater length of time under

Dorkin was examining the engineering work of a young beaver- colony,
down near the.southern boundary of
his Preserve. The exhilaration of a
success, due in a great measure to his
own ingenuity in .diverting..a stream
so as to partialV flood .the'four acres
of tableland, thus-giving the clever,
webfooted builders a perfect :.colony-
site, tingled his .veins and" gave the
golden summer's" morning an ;added

On a mossy, knoll,, a-little way

brown eyes looking up inlo her face-
As she smoothed'his long hair, ithe
world hc had placed���as he thought������
far behind him.
What right had thcy to come and
disturb, to menace, his happiness? It
was not as though they could understand his shagland sanctuary as a
broken body and spirit, which the
sweeping solitude had reshaped and
rebuilt, understood it. Why were
thcy here?' That world behind���the
onc in which he had failed and gone
under���was thcir world. It had given to the one success and the plaudits of men; to thc other, wealth and
ease. And beforc both lay life which
promised worth-while things. Why,
then, were they here?
Slowly, with bent head, Dorkin
walked up the trail, pondering this
question. Coming to a sloping
glade, spreading a carpet of moss
green beneath thc darker foliage of
the trees, he paused and glanced
about him. He knew that into his
heart was creeping a fateful and
dreaded, unsurcness of himself, that
bitterness which a criminal, who has

Interesting    Facts    Regarding    the
Rearing of Animals in Captivity.
Some interesting facts regarding
fox farming are forthcoming from the
Veterinary Director General, Dr, Torrance. In an article in Thc Agricultural Gazette of Canada for November, hc tells us that thc main difficulty
connected with the'raising of foxes in
captvity is the protecting of them
from disease. It is noticeable that
the female instead of giving birth to
a litter of four or five at a time, as
she does when free, rarely produces
morc than two, thc average for the
farms in Prince Edward Island bcing
at thc -rate of one and a half. Individual fox ranchers,, however, by
care and improved methods, do succeed in securing an increase of three
or even four per pair. With a view
to making this success more general,
under the direction of Dr. Torrance, i
research work has been undertaken.
Land and equipment have been acquired, two scientific experts from the
Health of Animals Branch employed,
six pairs of foxes from the Island
ranches furnished, and a small laboratory fitted up for the studying of the
diseases and parasites that affect the

Think Mineral Fields Exist in Fort
McMurray District.
Drillers operating under thc direction of thc Alberta Government havc
definitely established the existence of
an extensive field of high grade salt at
Fort McMurray in Northern Alberta.
At a depth of* six hundred and fifty j
feet the well has been sunk through
thirty feet of pure salt.
Exploration work was begun at
Fort McMurray about twelve months
ago by thc Provincial Government,
the well being drilled in the township
itself. Thc results bear out the opinion of geologists that an immense
field of salt exists in this region. In
its drilling operation the government
has been unlucky in meeting with
mechanical difficulties and at,thc present time with the drill*in thc salt to
a depth or morc than thirty feet work
has again been held up with equipment trouble. It is believed that it
will be necessary to sink another well
to get the fuH advantage of discovery,
but that the strike will justify measures toward development of the salt

therefore, to consider what is his view

how he gave it hi reply to one of them
who broached the subject: \f I were

hunt for a ncw home where they will
not be hampered with any law compelling them to send thcir children to
school. Delegations of tliis-people
havc in thc past visited several of thc
countries of thc world, but havc so
far found n�� place' where thcy could
.escape education ��� for thcir children.
.Now Ihey arc to try Mexico, and. a

that country on'a hunt for land'and

It-is understood on good authority
that the Mcnnoniics,have given another option on their land' to a Regina. firm, and . think that this 'time

Priceless Beecher Relics Lost.
Priceless manuscripts and relics,
written and collected by Henry' Ward
Bcechcr, including many sermons in
his own handwriting, were consumed
by a fire that destroyed the Sunday
school building adjoining thc historic
Plymouth Church, Brooklyn, where
thc famous pulpit orator was pastor
for many years. The old church edifice itself, erected in 1849, narrowly
escaped destruction. In their efforts
to save the main edifice, the firemen
had to break ten memorial stained
glass windows.
How'Calgary Got Its Name.
A controversy has arisen as to how
Calgary obtained its name-. For
years it has been accepted that Col.
MacXcod, commanding the R.N.W.-
M.P. detachment at this place, named
it so in 1876, aftcr his old home on
thc Isle"''of Mull, Scotland. Now,
however, comes a claim from Scots-
calder, Thurso, lhat a family Of Sin-
clairs emigrated to Canada and eventually came to what is now Alberta,
naming thcir farm, Calgary, after thc
place they left in Scotland.

Bigger Than 1915 Crop;
Alberta's wheat crop in 1915 was
60,000,000. bushels valued af $50,000,-
000. In 1919, the yield was valued at
$63,349,000, being 34,575,000 bushels.
Thc largest fcdcral official estimate of
this year's crop is 82,972,000 bushels,
which, taken at $2.00 a bushel will
bring Alberta's farmers thc sum or
$165,944,000.. This means fhat the
bumper yield of 1915 will be increased
nearly threefold ' in monetary value,
assuming that approximately the
present pricc of wheat holds.

Banks Close Down
Parliament   and   Legislature
, Fifteen    Banks    Have    Now    Shut

I Resources.
I Bisniarck, N.D.���Three more North
i Dakota banks closed thcir doors late
today, due to depleted resources,
bringing the total of such closures reported here for the past 14 days to 15.
y Those shutting down today were thc
State Bank of Adrian, the State Bank
of Donhybrook, and the State Bank
of Glenburn, all in Renville ocunty.
Earlier in the day it was announced that thc State Bank o.f Mohall did
not open for Business today. It was
the tenth bank closed.
The State Bank examiner, C. E.
Loftus, announced that no receivers
arc bcing named for the closed banks,
The task of framing a constitution"for the Dominion of Canada'was undertaken just at thc time when the United States was engaged in a life and
death struggle between thc Statcs of thc North and the Southern Confederacy. The war of secession arose out of thc issue of Slates' rights, individual Statcs claiming and asserting their right to thc exercise of certain autonomous rights and powers and charging interference and usurpation of those
rights and powers by the Federal ^authority at Washington.
With the grim results of such a dispute ovcr Stales! rights beforc them,
the fathers of thc Canadian Confederation deliberately framed a constitution - but an officer of each bank has been
witli-the underlying idea of creating a strong and powerful Federal author-1 named a special deputy examiner to
ity, rather than thc development of strong Provinces. Consequently, the' have charge of the-vinstitution. Loftus
constitution of Canada is based on thc rcverse'principle to that which was said he expected many of the banks
recognized in framing thc constitution of the United Statcs.
By the constitution of the big American republic, all powers not expressly reserved to the Federal Government belong to and arc exercised by
the respective States; in Canada, on the other hand, all powers not expressly conferred upon the Provinces are reserved to the Federal Government. This marked difference in thc underlying principle of the,constitutions of the two countries frequently leads tb misunderstanding of thc powers and functions of Provincial Governments on the part of ncw settlers in
this country from across the border. As a result, requests and demands arc
made, upon Provincial Governments which it is not within their powers
and jurisdiction to grant.
It is manifestly impossible in a brief article to attempt even a bare
enumeration of thc exclusive powers conferred by the British North
America upon the Dominion Parliament, on -the one hand, and Provincial
Legislatures on the "other hand. Suffice it .is to say that matters of a
national character, and those having to do with other countries, as well as ~ '    77

Parliament has-pbwer to' raise its revenues in practically any and cvery .way
it chooses, and to levy taxation on all the people, both direct and indirect.
Provincial Legislatures, on the other hand, arc restricted to the.raising

Mining   Engineer   Says   Dependence
- On U.S. Would Be Dangerous.
"The- utilization of western coal in
Ontario" was thc subject of a timely
address delivered by James McEvoy,
a- ' well-known mining engineer and
geologist, before the Mining "and
Metallurgical Club of the University
of Toronto".
. Mr.    McEvoy    began by declaring
Easily Maintained Through the Use
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
There is not a nook or corner in
Canada, in the cities, thc towns, the
villages, on thc farm and in the
mines and lumber camps, where Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have not been
used, and from onc end of thc country lo the other thcy havc brought
back to bread-winners, their wives
and families the splendid treasure of
ncw health and strength.
You have only to ask your neighbors, and thcy can tell you of somc
rheumatic or ncrve-shattcrcd man,
some suffering woman, ailingjyouth
or anaemic girl who owes present
health and strength to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. For morc than a quarter
of -a century these pills havc been
known not only in Canada, but
throughout all tlic world, as a-reliablc
tonic,  blood-making  medicine.
The wonderful success of Dr. Williams'   Pink   Pills   is due to the fact
1. The Parable of the Hid Treasure
(v. 44).
The common interpretation of this
parable that Christ is the hid treasure
for which thc sinner must give up
everything in order to buy salvation
is false, for lhc following reasons:
1. Christ is not hidden in a field,
but has been lifted up and madc a
spectacle of the world.
2. Nobody has ever been obliged to
buy thc world in order to get Christ.
3. Salvation cannot      be    purchased,
for it is God's free and gracious gift.
4. No warrant is ever held out to a
man to "Conceal his religion after he
has obtained it.
Jn order to find ground that is safe
and that wc may appreciate its beauty
and symmetry let us break up thc parable into its component parts:
1. The' field. This is' tlie world (v.
2. The treasure. In Psalm 135:4 we
arc told that Israel, the chosen people, is His treasure. The same truth
is sot forth in different places and
ways (Dcut. 7:6-8; 14:2; 26:18; 32:8,
9). The kingdom of heaven as to its
true relation and bearing is now hidden. Christ, was primarily sent to
the Jews; it was for their sake, the
hid treasure, that He bought thc field.
3. Thc purchased���thc Son of God
(John 3:16).
4. Thc purchasing pricc. This was
| the  precious  blood  of  Jesus   Christ,

Big Increase In Trade.
An increase of ,?31,917,125 is shown
in the.figures for the-grand, total of
Canadian-trade for October?' 1920, as
compared with the same1 month "in
1919.- The'. increase -for the "seven
months of thc fiscal year ending-Oc-
ncst is occupied, with numbers of thc | ninety-five per cent. of. the munition
birds-roosting pn outbuildings and. in.
.temporary nesting places! This
gives the unique .farm a-population of
-cojisiderably-more^than the qiic.hun-
drcd thousand feathered inhabitants
claimed for it.
The. birds cat -two tons of wheat
each day, with . large, quantities of
green stuff and other.foods, of which
a regular, account is-not kept, as itis
obtained from, surrounding farms in
exchange for the fertilizer from.the
.pigeon ranch..- When    the   pigeons
.are disturbed at their 'eating thcy
rise from the ground in huge, white
clouds spotted here and there : with,
patches of blue. .. For a number of
years,    however, ; thc. colored   birds
'.have been gradually- weeded out7uhtil
nearly all arc show white.
The product''of the farm, squabs,

II. Tho Parable of the Merchantman
-'" />Sccking Pearls (vv. 45, 46).
The view that this merchantman
represents the sinner seeking salvation is contrary to the whole teaching of Scripture. This would make
the sinner to be .seeking'for Christ,
while Christ is as indifferent as a lifeless pearl. The' whole" burden of
revelation is that man, since thc fall
of Adam in thc garden of Eden, has
becn'hid away from God, and that the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all
activicly engaged in seeking for lost
1. The merchantman. Hc is without
question Chrisl. Hc is actively engaged in the search for pearls. In
this search hc discovers onc pearl of
great pricc. ""'
2. The purchasing pricc. Thc merchantman sold o all���impoverished
himself in order to buy thc pearl.
Christ impoverished .Himself (Phil.
2:6-8) to purchase thc one pearl of
gr,eat pricc by His own precious blood
\\. Pet. 1:18,'19; Eph. 5:25). Salvation is without money and without

The Slump in Trade
President of British Board of Trade
Says Prices Must Drop But
Trade Will Pick Up.
Sir Robert Horn*, president of the
British Board of Trade, speaking at
Manchester, said that he did not believe that thc present slump in trade
would be of long duration, but prices
must come down. Thc proportion of
goods which the dominions received
from Great Britain, said Sir Robert,
was less now than beforc thc war.
The United Statcs had got into thc
colonial markets. Great Britain, thc
Minister maintained, should do
everything to recover the fullest
measure of its trade wilh thc great
dominions. It was also no longer any
good to say that: "Wc won't
trade with Russia because of the character of her government. Great
Britain must trade therc sootier or
later, and it was no .good wailing,"
claimed Sir Robert.

Pretty Girls in Ads
Washing Machine Are Always Run
By Pretty Girls in Fetching
' Attire.'
Many women are wondering why
advertisers stick so closely to thc idea
of using pretty girls in advertising
copy. Do they-go ori thc theory that
a pretty girl would immediately attract the attention of the housewife.
If so, they are making -a bad guess,
for'it is invariably thc rule that where
thc figure of a girl or a pretty face
is used,, it is hooked up with a.product having no connection with the
jjicture. If wc arc to believe some
of the advertising we 'read, washing
machines are always run by pretty
girls in fetching attire; that patent
garbage cans arc always hustled by
slim waistcd girls; lhat the cooking
and the dish-washing is'always'done
by a girl with fluffy ruffles. - Isn't it

Win, Robertson, formerly time-

Bock    Creek,    aiid   well   known
throughout the Boundary met with
a fatal accident at the Canada Cop-
!, per Co.'s mill at Allenby on Nov.
25th, by falling into one of the big
scoops  and was  literally  cut to
.pieces.    Mr.  Robertson leases a
wife and small  family  to whoai
much sympathy is felt.
The inquest was conducted by
Prbv. Coroner t>r. McCaffrey, and
evidence was given  to  the effect
. that the deceased came to bis death

until recently, are likely  to be re-
owing to the fact; that the Mexican
government is coining large quantities.
Ife is estimated fehat world production for 1920 will, fall short of
the pre-war rate by at least 29,000-
000 ounces, the figures being 223,-
900,000 ounces for 1913 and 195,-
000,000 ounces for 1920. According to the statistician who prepared
these estimates, Mexico came alone
of the world's silver producing
countries equalled in 1919 the prewar rate of output. He attributes
the fall in output to uncertainty
regarding continuation of purchases
under the Pittman Act by the United States; falling, off in China's de-r
mand; progressive exhaustion of
fehe Cobalt fields and. heavy unrefined surplus at TLB. copper mines,
from which large quantities of silver are derived as by-product.
y7orld's future demand he deems
problematical because Germany
has demonetized silver, and many
other- countries are - substituting
paper or nickel, or capronickle, for
silver money. ...Prospective demand
for coinage purposes . outside; of
Asia is! 7 not... considered , great."
