"The Family Honor'
A one sided looking score doe's
not always mean that the victors
had it all their own way. This
certainly was not'the case- when
Rock Creek journeyed to Greenwood on Labor Day and met the
local boys in an exhibition game
of baseball. The final tally
showed 14 for the yisitors and 6
for the local'"team. Rock Creek
played a steady game throughout,
the fielders and basemen- giving
good support to their excellent
pitcher and catcher. The visitors
only made one error throughout
the game, while the local team
made several and showed great
lack of practice. Great praise
and credit is due the players of
Rock Creek on their yictory.

but- the McLaughlin was badly
damaged. After considerable repairs were made Mr. Morrison

While burning brush upon his

of Nicholson creek, unfortunately
let the fire get tbe upper hand of
him last week. Eighteen men
were required to check the blaze,
which last five days. Some of the
adjoining ranchers packed up ready
to vacate but, luckily on account
of change of wind, they were saved
the trouble. One wag.' from the
Creek describes the outbreak as
follows: "On August 29th, oar
new neighbour Mr. Haynes, had a
house warming party, to celebrate
his arrival, which proved to" be a
great success. Everyone was made
welcome and there were illuminations at night. Mr. and Mrs.
George Lee, of Horncliffe Manor
also took an active part in the
festivities and none worked harder
than they to bring the celebration
to a successful termination, afterwards the whole party repaired to
the palatial residence of B. P.

where & smoking concert was held,
covers being laid for eighteen.

These exteriors add beauty and
interest to this thrilling story of a.
beautiful Southern girl,- who is left
alone with her two younger brothers, with their family fortunes dissipated. She struggles along and
manages to put the older boy
through college before the last cent
is exhausted.^
Instead of tbe brother taking the
reins and financingthe familyafter
he had finished school, he becomes
an additional burden, believing
that it is no part of a gentleman's
duty to work. Finally comes the
crisis when he is arrested for murder. But a surprising event happens which turns the tide, and the
young Southern girl finds that her
trials are ended.

England's Traditi
a young and new country like Canada, and especially when thc population is of a rnost'cosmopolittui character, a regular polyglot of language
nnd races, there is apt to develop a feeling akin to contempt for-thc historical past and those traditions of older lands which havc been handed down
from generation to generation' and become woven into and a part of the
national character. There is liable to be an impatience with all that savors
of precedent am'! a sconi of reliance upon long tried principles and policies,
which havc brought the race to where it is today, -enlarged its freedom and protected its liberties. v
Granted that it would be a mistake for any new country to supinely
rely upon and slavishly follow in thc footsteps of older lands and thcir historical past; admitting .that only by new departures, by blazing new trails,
by a courageous initiative, can there be progress���it is none the less true
that in thc forward march lhc safe, thc prudent course is to retain a strong
anchor,, in tlie past; to'press onward, not by the adoption of revolutionary
methods, but through wise evolution, profiting by thc mistakes and lessons
of tlie past, but inspired by thc glorious traditions and achievements of our
. .forefathers and guided by thcir ripened experience and~wisdom.
What made ..Enjrlaud thc bulwark of the Allied cause, throughout the
long drawn out years of the Great War?' Why was it that Germany feared
England more than ail her other enemies combined? And why is it that
in these trying first years of peace in a world turned topsy turvy it is to
England the whole world looks to carry the major portion of the world's
burden and work out the world's salvation
It is not that thc men and women of the English race arc so knuich more
clever than those of other races; it is not that they are, taken as a whole
intellectually superior; it is not that thcy are gifted above all other peoples.)
No, it is not because of these things.     But it is because there is grounded
in the people of .England���not merely those now living within the confines
of England, but in all parts of thc world���thc great traditions of England,
the -inspiration of England's literature, the lives, the words,  the deeds  of
England's great men.     It is such traditions as that established by England's
sailors, "Women and children first," and "the captain was thc last to leave
the  sinking ship,"  that  has  maintained  untarnished  England's mercantile
service and made her naval supremacy uo threat to thc world.     "England
.never knows when she is beaten," impatiently declared'one of her greatest
enemies in a bygone age, and that tradition remained with the soldiers and

New Gallipoli Incident Told
An Interesting Bit of War History
Concerning" the Evacuation.
Lord Nortltcliffc recently revealed
an interesting bit of war Jiistory concerning the evacuation of Gallipoli.
Thc hero of thc story was Keith"Murdoch, an Australian journalist, who is
returning home to become editor of
the Melbourne Herald, and the occasion of thc telling of it was a
luncheon given to Murdoch by the
"It is an open secret," said Lord
Northcliffc in proposing Mr. Murdoch's health, "that it was due to
his initiative that the Australians and
thc rest were removed from Gallipoli.
Coming to Europe for the first timc
he went to Gallipoli peninsula and for
the first time the truth was revealed.
"He brought a despatch, a very
terrible despatch which I believe was
intended to be sent to Australia. Pie
showed that despatch to mc and I suggested that the time which would be
spent in carrying that ghastly record
to the Antipodes could bc better
used for the purpose of immediate action.
"I asked him.to take it to Lloyd
George and one of tlie finest-pieces

the war^ was "to circulate the document, to/.the-whole.,- -cabinet; ./which

Here is one called blackberry fizz.
A quart of blackberries is stewed in
jus't a little water until soft and broken. These are strained and sweetened and then bottled or canned for
i future use, if the juice is not tp be
i used at once. ��� To make thc drink,
pour one-third of- a glass of blackberry syrup into a chilled glass. Add
a tablespoon of lemon juice and somc
crushed ice. Then -fill thc glass to
thc top with ginger ale. --
Fruit punch is sometimes found flat
and lacking in fktvor, while it may
contain choice ingredients. This
may bc overcome by the addition of
a little orange pekoe tea infusion. A
rounding tablespoon of tea steeped in
a quart of boiling water for five minutes is a desirable addition to the
average gallon  of punch.
Here arc thc proportions for a
punch to serve twenty-five with probably two cups ofvpunch each: To the
juice of twenty oranges and twelve
lemons, add a pound of granulated
sugar and boil five minutes. Cool
and then add the contents of one No.
10 can of grated pineapple.
Add. a quart of cold tea infusion
and three quarts of either plain
water or Apollina'ris. .The punch
should  be   thoroughly  chilled  before
Nature's Bounty
Sometimes Has Very Bad Effect On
Unhappy Mortals.
Many ~a   mother   ,hcrs overfed her
children until thcy sickened and died;
land nature is sometimes guiltv of a
. bounty    which_. has the same'effect
| upon unhappy mortals.    "Great Yield
j of Fish Ruins Brittany Trade," saj-7
! a headline in  the New York Times,
which   goes   on   to explain that the
fishermen   in   all   the villages along
the    coast    are    standing about the
wharves, smoking and swearing at the
bounteousness of nature,   which   has
supplied   so   many fish tha't tlicv are
all' out  of work:
_ "ft
li thcy go out one day a week they
catch as many sardines and mackerel
and other fish as they llsecl t0 catch
in seven days, and the price they get
for them is. comparatively, in the purchasing power of money, less than
half the present war prices.' . -.
Almost every day millions,, of the little fish (sardines) are thrown out to
make fertilizer for thc fields. Can-
ncrs, too, have now exhausted the
supply of tin and have begun closing
down their factories in the very middle of what used lo bc thc season.
But in Paris restaurants the price of
sole is five times what it was before
the war.
; The situation, is all too common in
America. .Except during the war
scarcity we often saw vegetables, fish
���every sort of food except the expensive types suitable for cold storage���destroyed deliberately to -keep
the price up. The"apple grower sets
out his orchards, sprays, prunes and
nurses them���but a too generous crop
will ruin him. If a normal yield is
a thousand bushels, he will make
more money on five hundred than on
fifteen hundred. The much-quoted

Planet   Believed   to    Have    Passed
Through Comet's Tail oh
August 8th.
Announcement is made at the Koe-
nigstuhl Observatory in Heidelberg,
Germany, that the earth passed,
through the tail of a comet on the
night of August 8.
At-sunset on August 7, a bright object was observed near the sun by W.
W. Campbell, director of Lick Observatory, which is located near San
Jose, California. Five persons saw
the celestial object, and reports from
the observatory indicated tha_t experts
there believed it might be trie nucleus
of a bright comet. It would appear
probable that this identification was
correct, in view of thc foregoing report from Germany.

Gas   Is   More  Merciful  In  Warfare

Sir William Pope, president of the
Society of Chemical Industry, at the
convention  in  Montreal,    spoke    on
"Gas Warfare,'! and said that at the
time'-of .the  armistice materials  had
been, found, aganist .which' respirators
were "of no avail.   Sir William'charged  that   froin  a-humanitarian .view.-
point gas was..a more merciful' factor-..' of  warfare  than  big'-.explosives,
and its results had been "shown-, to be
far less, destructive."    As to'niiistard

Home Bread Making
Suggestions   as  to  Requirements  to
Secure the Best Results.
Bread-making "is an-art not nearly
so extensively practiced in the household as in bygone days.      In urban
districts it is  so little practiced that
home-made bread has come to be regarded as a luxury.     Thc reason is
not far to seek.     Trouble is avoided,
and professional -bakers  titrn' out an
article of good quality generally; and
at a price, little in excess of what the
cost would be if made by thc. housewife or thc cook.   And then the baker
has facilities that the housekeeper has
not.     For instance, one of the main
difficulties encountered when bread is
being made in the home is the lack of
a place where the dough can be kept
at   suitable   and    even    temperature
throughout'the whole period of fermentation.     Relative to this fact; Dr.
C. E. Saunders, !the Dominion Cereal-
ist, in a bulletin recently issued at Ottawa on "Wheat, Flour, and Bread,"
says'that where bread is made very
often  it would be advisable to, construct a special fermenting ��� box    or
cupboard, where the temperature can
be' maintained at between 80 and 90
degrees. -    Once- the  process  of  fermentation has started the dough must
not be allowed to become either,chilled  or  overheated:      A   little  butter,
Iard; or other shortening reduces the.
toughness without detracting from the
flavor.-    Sugar should bc used in great >pedition  will  be  the
moderation.-   Dr. Saunders goes fully] the Antarctic south ol.tli
Two Scotch Lads Are Cabin Boys On
the Shackleton Expedition. V
Undeterred by his. previous   rather
terrifying experiences in tbe Antarctic, Sir'Ernest Shackleton sailed from ~
England    recently .  on a *30,000-mile
voyage of discovery among the little .
known islands in the South Atlantic
and South Pacific and in the unchar->
tered seas that girdle the South Polar
continent.     As his last   act   before,
starting' on his eventful expedition, Sir
Ernest selected two Boy Scouts to.be
cabin boys out of ten picked out from
the hundreds who applied   from   all
parts of the United Kingdom because
of their, peculiar qualifications.     As'
it' happens, two from  Scotland were
preferred,-one from Shetland and the
other from Aberdeen,   and   naturally ..
they were envied by all   boys    that
have   the   call   of adventure in their -
blood.     Both of thc   cn6*sen   Scouts
had gained the highest badges possible, and what, perhaps,'was   the   decisive qualification, thcy were accustomed to handling boats.    Although
they occupy^ the lowest positions, they
will    undoubtedly    havc    plenty    of
chances to prove their mettle and' be.,
called oh also to show' their powers -���
of endurance-under extrernery adverse- '
circumstances.     Sir Ernest Shackles-
ton and his companions in their last   ���
expedition,   that' started  out in   the
early days of the war, had more-than
thcir fill of the "stark and sullen-solitudes that sentinel the Pole."
The Quest, as the explorer's  new
ship   is    called,   is a little vessel of
some 200 tons net and is manned hymen; of science   and    the    sea . and
equipped for every brach of scientific
research.     The most modern, instruments  are  provided,  the  whole  ex- '���
peditipn  having been;' made possible
by the generosity of Mr. John Quillcr  .
Ro.wett, of Eby Place, Frant, Sussex.
During the    exploration,    soundings-
will be made    and    many    oceanic   .
islands  will bV examined,  some* but
little known and others not know at -.
all.     Animal, bird.and marine life in-
these islands and adjacent waters will
���be studied, as- well as thcir geology.

observations,- and the kinema and still"

many : claims by shippers. In some
districts -this cause is reckoned, as
producing from'25 .to 30-per cent of
all claims for ^damages. Railroad

problem,Which is difficult because it

Now, however, ah instrument has
been devised to-dctect the time and

freight. It is called an "impact register," and has been'made the-subject of exhaustive tests by the Chicago; ""-Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad. - The machine is constructed
on tlie principle of the seismograph,
and when placed in a box car will
record the time of each shock and
also the intensity. By this means
the management is able to prove ex-'

the reckless switching, of freight cars

True to his usual custom Paul went

jews. From them he turned to such
as were found in the market place.
Here he-came, into touch with the
Epicurean. and Stoic philosophers.
Thc former were, atheistic materialists. Thcy denied the doctrine of
Creation. They gave themselves up
to sensual indulgences since thcy had
no idea of future judgment." Thc
latter were pantheists". When they
heard the preaching of. Paul thcy desired to know what new doctrine he
preached, so, they invited him_to the

Oldest Bell In
Western World
Taken From Spanish Monastry Bears
Date 803 A.D.
The oldest bell in North America���
or in cither of the Americas���is in the
rectory of the small village of East
Haddani, Conn., which stands a few
yards from the famous schoblhousc
of Nathan.Hale. The bell bears thc
date, "A.D. 803," and it is believed it
was" taken from an ancient Spanish
monastery. - The' bell probably came
to America as 'part of a" ship's ballast,
or as junk., At any rate, this particular bell was purchased from a junk
yards aud presented to -the church.
The ,,a<jc, of the bell" however, is
doubtful. It is. of bronze, and of a
greenish color. It is . not' cracked,
and will still resound, when struck,
but it is not now used.. There is little doubt, - however, that this bell is
the oldest iti this continent,- and that
it was the first bell to ring over the
waters of the-new world from the
belfry of one of thc first ��� churches
built on these shores. ..

3of contact. He proceeds at once to

God, implying .that this altar had

wise to begin at once to denounce
heathenism and idolatry.
2. The body- of his  discourse  (vv.
(1) A-declaration concerning God
(vv. 24, 25). (a) He created the
material universe (v. 24). This was
a dirc,ct blow at. the philosophy of
both the Epicureans and' the Stoics.
He did not attempt to prove the existence of God; it needs no' proof.
���The Bible everywhere assumes the
existence bf a divine being: '(b) "His
spirituality and immensity (vv. 24, 25).
He is not served with "men's hands
as though" he needed- anything," -nei-
Eher is He confined by any- sort of
religious. temple? Being essentially
spiritual- He demands heart-service,
and being transcendent above all He
is not confined to earthly temples,
(c) His active providence (v. 25). Hc
gives existence,- bestows needed gifts,
and as sovereigru.directs all, things.
(2) Declaration.  coTiccruing   man
.���(vv.-26-31).    (a). His .common origin
(v, 26).   This was a blow at the foolish  Athenian  pride,  which ."supposed
that  they were,.superior tp all other
people.    This  proposition hc proved
from their own literature- (see v. 28).
If ���men arc/the offspring of God and
bear His-likeness .it is-utter folly to
make images  as  the senseless  idols
were.  ��� (b)  Nations have their place
by the sovereign purpose:of God (v.
26).   ' Thc position and mission of
each nation-is of God's appointment
(c)   Men  shoAildj  seek "God" (v.. 26)."
His goodness, and grace- iti'supplying
all our .needs, and ordering even the
affairs  of   tlie.nations -should move
indeed; very  near   to  every one;   so
near ' that  our,existence  and  movements-are all under His-control (v.
27).    (d). Pressing obligation  to re-,
pent (vv.' 30,.31)"., This was-his supreme message.      Though  God  had
formerly'passed'over, idolatry He now
calls to-all men, to. repent.   The. sol- f
cmh. reason   for   such  action,  is   the
coming day of judgment, the credential :- of  which -is   the 'resurrection" "of
Jesus   Christ  from -the "dead.      Thc

Gluten Flour
Its Uses and Characteristics Explained in Government Bulletin.    -
Nearly all of the so-called gluten
flours offered to the .public are not
made from gluten.     Such,is the frank
statement made by,.Dr. C. E. Saunders, the Dominion Cerealist,.in a.bul-
letin    entitled    "Wheat,   Flour   and
Bread," recently issued by the Experimental Farms Branch    at    Ottawa.
The named/used, says Dr. Saunders,
is entirely misleading, as these flours
often    contain    a1 high percentage of
starch  and  are   quite  unsuitable   for
diabetic patients.    As a rule the gluten flours offered for sale are practically identical with .the/whole wheat
and graham flours.'     Genuine gluten
flour, which is made by washing the
starch out of wheaten flour and then
drying and grinding, is extremely expensive.     Gluten bread.has no resemblance to ordinary bread and as a substitute  for  such  is  an impossibility.
Rather less than 50 per centVof genuine gluten flour can be mixed with
ordinary flour, and bread of medium
quality bc made.      Gluten flour can
also be used in the production of pancakes, biscuits and    other    products
provided it be  mixed  with  ordinary
flour, fine shorts or ground nuts, together with eggs, milk, baking powder, etc.'     There is, however, no possibility    of    producing any fornv of
palatable bread, biscuit or cake with
a very large proportion of pure gluten flour.    Dr. Saunders suggests that
physicians would bc well advised to
take cognizance of these facts and not
to  expect  their patients to purchase
what is unpurchasable or to eat what
is inedible.     The bulletin, it might be
remarked,   goes    thoroughly into its
subject, treating it in all its phases.

Reminiscences   of   Gallant   Seaman
, _ X Who Braved Arctic Perils.
The jother day at Hull, there died
at the great age of ninety-seven, a
captain, Richard Tether, who was the
last link with those 'active Arctic expeditions in search of the remains of
Franklin's party, every searching expedition bringing reports of importance to geographical science. Tether's death fs the occasion of a looking backward to the search for a
northwest passage to the Pacific,
especially to Sir John Franklin's last
expedition and to the expeditionsVfor
his relief, and later for the purpose
of discovering what happened to the
"Erebus" and the "Terror" and their
Franklin is an arctic hero of a
singularly heroic maritime age and
his name is associated with Canada's
northland on two counts. In 1819, on
his first overland journey from Hud-
'son's Bay to the mouth of.the Coppermine River, he wintered on the
Saskatchewan. And it was at Cumberland House that he taught the j
lad, William Kennedy, psalms and
hymns, and left him with aspirations
that bore fruit long after. On that
expedition, which covered two years,
he returned by the Barren Ground.
In the years 1825-1827, he made a
second overland journey, or inland
voyage as the term is now. Both
expeditions, fruitful in discovery,
were well rewarded by the nation.
Between 1829 and 1845 when he
sailed on the -last fateful voyage,
Franklin won distinction in the
Mediterranean and in the South. Seas,
but he was ready? and eager for the
new adventure by Arctic ice and
water, and when the First Lord of
thc Admiralty reminded him that he
was sixty years old, the explorer replied: "No,.: no, my lord, only fifty-
nine." - 'Though the .whole expedition
was to, end tragically, the evidence
is that the noble adventurer saw the
northwest passage- though he .never
entered it.
Between 1847 and 18S7 some forty-
nine expeditions-sailed in search of
the "Erebus" and the "Terror," many
of thern financed by voluntary contributions. Lady Franklin spent her
whole fortune in the search.. The
expedition of 1851, in the schooner
Albert, commanded by Captain Kennedy, with Lieut. Bcllot, of the
French navy as second," was Lady
Franklin's- private venture; and it
was the "Prince Albert" that brought
home the first traces, of. the missing
ships, consisting of ^scattered articles
found on Becchey Island by the captain of another ship. The notable
geographical discoveries made by the
"Price Albert" were Bellot ' Straits
and the northernmost point of land
in North' America which navigators
had been seeking for centuries.
Captain Kennedy, who was born at
Fort Cumberland, returned to the
Northwest' and spent the last forty
"years of his life at St. Andrew's on
the Red River. . A few years ago, the
women's Canadian Club placed a
tablet to his memory in the old stone
church at-.St. Andrew's, built-in 1848.
The tablet was unveiled by Sir-
Ernest . Shackleton. \
Like'., Captain Kennedy, Richard
Tether-was-' a volunteer, but.iri a
later - searching expedition he had
been an able seaman and had spent
boyhood "and, manhood in northern
waters. Like Captain - Kennedy, he
"slipped-his anchor," but not at sea.
-Such -men,-says-his -men-iorialist-in--a

Alberta May Have Oil Boom
British Trade Commissioner, Montreal, Receives Detailed Report.
That there may be an oil boom in
this country of unprecedented proportions is the conclusion of' a detailed
report on oil operations in Alberta
and the North-West Territories received (by Capt. E. J. Edwards, senior
British trade commissioner, Montreal,
from the Winnipeg branch.
0 The operations of the Imperial Oil
Company take the major part in the
report, and the conclusion is that
"there ia little doubt that the arrival
of further important news from the
north at the end of the present sum--
mer and the finding of more oil within the province of Alberta will be the
signal for an oil boom of unprecedented magnitude.
No season of the. year is so dangerous to the life of little ones as is
the summer. The excessive heat
throwa the little stomach out of order so quickly that unless prompt aid
is at hand the baby may be beyond
all human help before the mother
realizes he is ill. Summer is the season when ^diarrhoea, cholera infantum, dysentery and colic arc most
prevalent. Any one of these troubles
may prove deadly if not'properly
treated. During the summer the
mothers' best friend is Baby's Own
Tablets. They regulate the. bowels,
sweeten the stomach and keep baby
healthy. The Tablets are sold by
medicine dealers ctr by mail at 25
cents a box from The Dr. Williams'

"Federal Mining & Smelting Co.
has secured a bond on the Stem-
winder and Ontario group of claims
adjoining the big Sullivan property of the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co., of Canada, Ltd.,
near Kimberley, East Kootenay,
British Columbia," says the Mining Truth, Spokane. Consideration involved is not made public
and the life of the bond is officially
stated to be "ample" to ascertain
definitely the value of the ground
from Federal's standpoint. These
groups are part of the mineral
holdings of the MacKenzie & Mann
interests, and have been held by
the Eastern Canadian railway
builders for a number of years.
"Federal has been interested in
the ground before, to an-, extent of
an option held in 191S, but which
was dropped after two or three
months' diamond drilling. It was
gathered from this that at the time
the results were unsatisfactory.
Development of mixed reserves of
mixed silver-lead-zinc ore in the
Sullivan by Consolidated Co., and
leasing operations conducted by
Thompson & McKinney on North
Star group may be responsible for
Federal's decision to re-enter the
field. On the other hand, abandoning the ground after some
diamond drilling might mean such

work was announced as unsatisfactory with a view to arranging a
new deal. The MacKenzie & Mann
interests are known to be in a tight
corner and at the present.time they
would undoubtedly be very much
inclined to throw overboard for
comparatively little a complex
mineralbgical 'white elephant.' "
"Taking hold a second time of a
proposition previously dropped by
the A. S. & E. subsidiary may be
taken to mean one or both of two
things. The first is a dire necessity for lead ore for fluxing purpose., or a ultimate importance of
the Canadian lead, silver and zinc
market from the . standpoint of a
corporation able to produce those
metals in Canada." -
