Mining Notes
Diamond drilling has been going
on at the White Lake Coal Lands,
near Pehfcicton, for some time, during which period the drill has encountered 14 veins the largest having a width of 20 feet, -while
three others average 14 ft., 11 tt.,
and 9 ft., and several others 3 feet,
containing solid coab It is admitted to be extra good steam coal
and better blacksmith coal than
obtained from Pennsylvania or
Maryland. The K. V. have
agreed ta take all -coal as Boon- as
the coal company is able to supply
them""regularly.- It will be remembered that the property at one
time was owned by the late Robt.
Wood, who had unbounded faith
in it and it is too bad that he did
not live to see his faith demonstrated.

How Statesmen Seek Distraction From
Official Worries
Lloyd George lias just, given us an
nddition to the list of antidotes found
��� useful by statesmen against the worries and irritations of high ollice. His
own specific, lie tells us,  was Welsh
Bong. (.
Gladstone, who like Lloyd Ceorge
very rarely- lost sleep as (he result of
political worry, was also a stateman
who found solace in music all through
his career, though it is possible that
his woodmanship was not less u.selul
ln distracting his mind, and backgammon was sometimes requisitioned as
Whittling sticks and telling stories
were Abraham Lincoln's resources.
Bismarck's wife, when Beethoven's
"Moonlight" sonata was being
played, noticed the first tear in his
eye, and felt "he is no*, so hard as
he seems," and "passionate, heroic
music" made his recreations, side by
side with hunting in youth, long
country drives in old age. conversation with his pipe. The Reform Earl
Grey had a passion for dancing, and
as premier in the midst of a political
crisis, scried out one night at No. 710
Downing Street, "What would 1 not
give to dance like Taglioni."
Cat ham's     refuge     from     political
worry was landscape gardening on a
scale   appropriately   heroic;    Burke's
was    in    the    growing    of    turnips;

Moving  Picture  Invention
New Achievement Making High-Speed
Machine Parts Seem Stationary
It is a curious face that persistency
of vision, wliich alone makes possible
the "moving pictures" of the cinema,
also makes it possible to see���apparently stationary���any part of a machine which is really running at highspeed. By this means the observer
is enabled to study the exact position
and behavior of the parts under service conditions. This achievement,
which is of obvious utility to the designer or user of any high-speed machine, is effected by a British invention. ,- An electric lamp and contact
making device, both of special construction, are arranged so that the
machine is subject to intermittent,
illumination. The consecutive flashes
being timed so that the part under
examination is in the same position
on each occasion, it follows that the
part appears stationary and can- be
studied .at leisure. This in itself is a
useful result and greatly facilitate.*)
the adjustment of high-speed engines,
textile machinery, gear drives, and so
forth, but it is possible to go further
and to see the parts moving slowly
under high-speed conditions. This is
effected by Ihe use of a "creeping
gear" wliich slightly retards eacli consecutive flash of light. As a result,
the machine is seen in a position
slightly in advance of that which it
occupied when last under view. In
other words, a wheel whicli is actually
running at 1,500 revolutions a minute
can be made apparently to take -1 seconds for a single revolution. Every
stage of the revolution can thus be
followed and the events seen are, of
course, those which are actually occurring at full speed. Causes of
vibration and the method of working
of a valve or spring can be examined,
and a sewing machine can be seen
making its stitches. In fact the
whole motion of any moving part can
be discerned.

A Moral Failing Induced Through Lack
A writer in the Birmingham Post
delivers a lay sermon of a kind which
is not often seen in a dally newspaper. It is on the subject of procrastination, and he brings home in a
deadly way the consequences of this
"sin." Procrastination is not regarded, generally speaking, with any horror, because so few people value time.
It is never considered any loss to put
off doing until the morrow the unpleasant things which should be done
today. This, perhaps, is due to the
lack of reflection in the human race.
Moralists, fhe writer alluded to says,,
have been urging all through the ages
the'danger- of procrastination. Shakespeare's memorable pronouncement to
this effect is the most famous of rill:
"Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day
to day, to the last syllable of recorded
time; and all our yesterdays have
lighted fools the way to dusty death."
The habit of procrastination does not.
always mean a loss that, can be measured. Sloth is the cause so often of
throwing away opportunities that
there is rarely tin. incentive to estimate the effect of what has not been
done. Tlie writer in the Birmingham
Post recalls that St. Augustine relates
how "God has promised forgiveness
to repentance, but lie has not promised tomorrow to procrastination." We
quote this writer to show Ihe force of
the argument he advances:
There is no vice which colors ihe
whole of life���entering into the warp
and woof of it���more than proeras-
lination. At school the boy who
"'means to work hard" finds that
others with less advertised good intentions carry off all the prizes; and,
without knowing it, he is laying a
heavy and fatal handicap on his future, not so much by what he is actually lqsing in education as by the
steady growth of a pernicious habit.
In business the man who does not.
seize the, opportunity, making it his
very own, passes it on to someone
else.' - Nothing stands still, and while
one dreams of what he will do, instead
of getting it done, another is before
him;  the market is stale.
This lay sermon may be regarded by
many as a homily, but it contains
sound and substantial wisdom." In
the realm^of education there are few
morals which appear more necessary
to teach than that procrastination is
the "murderer of opportunity." There
is hardly anyone's life that is not
tinged with some regret���often poignant���because at some period sloth,
and a desire to postpone consequences,
have been responsible, for real and
definite loss in" the success of a-career.

Hot Food and Drink
May Cause Cancer
German     Professors    Issue    Warning
Against Stomach Irritation
Foods and drinks that are too hot
are likely to produce cancer, which is
caused from irritation in the stomach,
Professor W. Casparir of the Cancer
Section at Frankfort State Institute,
warned. The stomach is irritated naturally by hot foods and liquids, ihe
professor stated.
"I will not say one should eat and
drink only foods and liquids which are
cold," Prof. Casparir said. "There is
nothing against a cup of hot coffee or
tea now and then, and I recommend
hot grog for la g"rlppe."
Prof. Richard Werner, director of
Heidelberg Samariterhause, announced that he agreed with Prof. Casparir
that cancer in many cases was traceable to irritations in the stomach produced by over-hot food and drink.
I Prof. Werner said ho believed ihat
j Roentgen ray treatments were helpful, especially for women cancer
patients, but warned thai the value of
the rays should not be over-estimated.

"About a year ago a few small pimples broke out on my face. A month
later my cheeks and chin were entirely covered with large, red pimples
that festered and scaled over, and
frequently caused irritation. I tried
different remedies without success.
I read an advertisement for Cuticura Soap and Ointment and sent
for a free sample. After using it I
could see an improvement so purchased more, and after using two

Whece the King Cannot Go
Interesting      Stories      Published
Mother  of   Lord   Haldane
Some  remarkable i< mlniseences  of
England dating back almost a century
ago'liave been published by Mrs. Haldane, mother of Lord Haldane.     .Airs.
Haldane, who is 90 years of   age,   remembers the days of the gibbet and j
when men were allowed to rot in debt-1
ors prisons. Also when families starved ;
on nine shillings a week.      Children ]
in  those  days  were  threatened   with}
"Boney" or Bonaparte if they misbe
haved, and were    taken    from    their i
cribs at 7 a.m. and plunged into cold
water   ^Jjaths.      They    learned    their
lessons    while    holding   blackboards,
their  feet in stocks    specially    constructed   by   a ��� carpenter.     Cholera;
which visited  Great;  Britain  in   1882,
was an unknown disease, against the
menace ot which 'children were strengthened by port wine and ale.     Bleeding was slill the favorite remedy for
till complaints.
Mrs. Haldane remembers the first
balloon and the first locomotive. She
concludes this interesting volume b?.
saying: "I was to see a complete
change in affairs, educational, political, social and religious, during my
long life, and, on the whole, am glad
to.-testify that these changes have
been for the better."
House of Commons  is Taboo for the
Eritish Sovereign
There is one place in the British dominions from which the King is forever barred���the House of Commons.
The meanest of his subjects may,
on complying with certain conditions,
sit.in the public gallery, and listen to
i the debates. But the Sovereign, once
he has ascended the throne, can do so
no longer; although as Prince of
Wales lie can, and frequently does,
come down to the llbuse-and occupy
a seat in the distinguished ..strangers'
I Queen Victoria, 'however, being little more than a girl when she ascended the throne, could only imagine
what the interior of her own House
of Commons looked like when in session, for during her, long reign of over
sixty years she never set foot inside
it.   "'
To appreciate the reason for this
hard and fast rule-we must go back in
imagination some hundreds of years,
Destroyed! By the Sea
Important City of Early Ages of
England Swept Away
Dunwich was one of the great cities
of the early ages of England. The
Romans settled there, and in Saxon
times it rose to eminence, so that it
actually became the seat of a bishopric. Kings were pleased to grant
land and charters to it, and it even
had a royal palace. It enjoyed the
privilege of coining its own money.
Within its walls were no fewer than
52 churches and religious houses, and
as a port it boasted great ships and
small ships.
Its destruction came, not from commercial rivalry, but from the all-devouring sea. The low cliffs of loam
and sand on which the famous city
stood were bit ty bit worn down by
the waves. The chronicles of Edward ll.'s reign show that '400 houses
were swept away inVt single year.
Between 1535 and 1600 four churches
disappeared, 'in 1677 the sea forced
ils wa.v^ into the marketplace. In
1792 St. Peter's was undermined, and
lhe churchyard went too.

White Hen Would Not Mother Dark
Colored Chick
1 had never noticed, writes a contributor, that hens sometimes prefer
chickens of 'their own color until
one summer when we had a white
hen running at large wiih a flock of
small chicks, most, of: which were
light, but one of^vhich was black.
For two or three days I was disturb*
ed by hearing'occasionally a pitiful
cry from one of the little ones. By
watching them closely I A\-as finally
able to discover the cause; Whenever the black chick came near ,liis
mother she would give hipv a cruel
peck; to all lhe others she was properly devoted, but" apparently she did
not like his complexion.
I was in r;>al distress over the
situation until I remembered having
recently heard a hen clucking as if
she were broody; and by a pleasant
coincidence she was black. Probably she was eager enough, for offspring to adopt-one of any color; at
all events she' welcomed most tenderly the unhappy waif that I presented her with.
To allow a hen to spend weeks in
raising one chicken was bad business management, but tlie pleasure
I desired .frorii seeing the once persecuted little creature happy under
the fostering care of a kind' mother
made it one of the most satisfactory
investments of my farm life.���Youth's

London.���In    ilie    House of Lords,
Earl Grey asked whether it wasVtrue
that the Colonial Ollice recently made
arrangements to consider the application from graduates of Canadian Universities for appointments fo the Brit-
-ish colonial service and whether representatives of the Colonial Ollice had
recently been  to Canada    to    confer
with  the-Canadian authorities in lhe
The Duke of Devonshire, Secretary
J'or the Colonies,   replied   that   satisfactory    progress" had    been    made.
The Colonial Office has it under eon-
:' skleration nnd it was recognized thai
it was essential that universities that
participated in the scheme should be
kept, posted  regarding  the nature of

London.���The Prince of Wales, it
was learned, intend.5 to visit Canada
in the autumn. He will go in a. private capacity and will not accept official engagements during his slay.  -���"

France Would Be Prepared
Must Be Ready to Strike the First
Paris.���The plan for the re-organization of France's army of 660,000
men was distributed among the members of parliament by Colonel Jean
Fabry, reporter fer the Chamber Army
Commission. It contemplates a mod-
ernized force, based on the lessons of
the great war, with serious attention
to new developments in aviation and
war materials.
Aviation' and gas, the. report said,
are menaces of the future.     Germany,
, _^-
by force of circumstances, must seek
her field of action in the air; therefore France must be strong there.
"We are preparing the army for
war, which we are resolved to~prevent," continues the report, "but must
be ready to strike the first blow.
France is now superior to other nations in aviation, except perhaps
bombing planes, but she cannot rest
satisfied, and must not be conteut
with machine guns in the air, for perhaps the time is near when aerial cannon will appear.".

Harvest First Wheat
limited Funds For
Protection Of Ships
Amount of $1,500,000 Allowed Canada
Does Not Go Far
Ottawa.���An insight into ihe importance of the British navy and the'
Royal Canadian navy to the economic
welfare ofthe country was given the
members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa
at their weekly luncheon, when Captain AV. Hose, R.C.N., Director of the
Naval Service, Ottawa, delivered an
address on "The Relation of the Navy
to the Economic Life of the Country."
' Canada allowed $1,500,000 yearly
for the protection of her own trade
by her own ship. Under the'most
stringent economy this amount did
not go very far, and the problem of
tlie naval service was to give a maximum of protection for the amount
granted. The best way to assure
this protection that,had so far been
arrived at was the concentration in
the trade outlet ol: the. country, and
with an active force of 400 men and a
rserve of 1,500 lhe department
doing its utmost.

this was against the spirit, if not

London.���The Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin, in the Hous,e ot Commons, and Marquis Curzon, in ihe
House of Lords, to eager audience,
made identical pronouncements on the
Government's policy on the repara-
fins problem. In contrast to statements on the same issue by his predecessors, Mr. Lloyd George and Mr.
Bonar Law, which were very lengthy,
Premier ��� Baldwin's speech was particularly brief, taking about sixteen
minutes for delivery and, as in neither
House did the Opposition offer criticism of any conseauence; ihe momentous proceedings were quickly ended.
The question on everybody's lips��� 7
how far the British Government disapproved of the French Ruhr policy?
was to a great extent unanswered.
Premier Baldwin certainly .moved
quite perceptibly away from Mr. Bonar
Law's attitude of passive tranquilty,
inasmuch as he announced the Government's decision lo submit to the allies a separate reply to Germany's latest offer. But he did not give the
slightest indication .of the nature of
ihe proposed reply. ���
This was the ?nly important point
in the pronouncement whicli was
chiefly a warning couched in the most
friendly language, but plainly telling
France that the British Government
could not much longer remain a passive spectator fid a policy which
threatened the economic collapse of
Germany, and with it:, disaster to the
whole of Europe.
Taken as a whole, the pronouncement seemed to be a new appeal to
France to retrace her steps and come
into line with all ihe allies in a new
effort to settle the reparations prob- .
lem by negotiation instead of by military penalties. The Premier, was
most careful to avoid any shutting of
the door on renewed negotiations.
Nofable., points were the complete absence of any reference to the United
Slates in connection with the negotiations and emphasis that Italy was with
England, rather than with France.
The Prime'Minister was emphatic in
declaring thai Germany must be made
to pay to the! extent of her capacity,
but he made no answer to the French
demands as to what .should constitute
France's security in ihe absence of
the Anglo-French-American convention, which was originally proposed to
afford France security against a renewed German attack. He alluded
incidentally to what was considered
the pet theory of himself and Regis-.
aid McKen'na, that the reparations
problem needs seltlement in connection with the inter-allied debts, but he
omitted to enlarge on this point.
Clearly the British policy was developed step by step, leaving an open-
irig;to the last for France to come into
line. - It may bc assumed that any
question "of calling a conference of
bankers.', and experts to" determine
Germany's paying capacity will come
in, the' proposed reply "to the German -
offer, which made that suggestion.

Crop Report
Below will be found a brief
synop3is of telegraph reports received at the Head Office of the
Bank of Montreal from its branches.
The branch managers have complete aud intimate knowledge of
each local situation and are in close
touch with crop conditions in all
sections of the districts mentioned.
The state of practically all crops
throughout the Dominion is exceptionally good. In the three
Prairie Provinces good growing
weather continues and the wheat is
heading out. Damage from hail
has not been above average and no
serious damage is reported from insect pests. Average crops are indicated for Quebec Province and a
good all around crop for Ontario.
In the Maritime Provinces hay will
be below average. Estimates are
for a large crop of apples. While in
field crops and tree fruits are in
promising condition with weather
favorable. Grain is doing well.
Roots have benefitted by rains but
potatoes near Ashcroft may be
below average. In Okanagan Valley all tree fruits are growing rapidly. More thinning than UBual is
being done and a large proportion
of No. 1 fruit is expected. Raspberries in good condition and picking has begun. Some damage has
been done to currants by cater
pillars. Pasturage plentiful and
in good condition.
