The waste baskets in a, newspaper office of any town do more

If you can think of anything
to beautify or build up our town,
go do it. Keep your capital-at
home: patronize home industries;
help your merchants so they can
sell cheaper; always ��et your
work done in your own town if
possible. If you follow these
suggestions and your town does
not improve and build up it will
not be your fault.   Try it.
Never find fault because a news-
spaper fails to give every scrap,
of news so long as you take no
pains to-give the editor" information. The ayerage editor isn't a
medium or nr!ud reader, but -he
gets his news the same way as a
milkman gets his milk���by pumping. This is true especially of
that class of items known as
personals. Rightly they are not
"puffery," but simply personal
mention for the information of
local readers* and those having
friends visiting them should always let the local editor know it,
and he will be glad to give it proper notice. So if you have a bit
of news worth' printing- put it iu
, the way of our pencil pusher.

In order, to relieve congestion in
the registration system and to, facilitate the handling of registered
letter mail, the registration of parcel post will be discontinued on the
1st of October, 1921, and an insurance of parcel post will be introduced, whereby parcels posted
in Canada, which conform to parcel post regulations, may be accepted for insurance up to 8100,
against loss, rifling or damage
while in the custody of the Canadian Postal Service.
The scale of insurance fees will
be as foHows: Three cents for insurance not exceeding. $5.00;
6* cents exceeding $5.00 and not
exceeding 625.00; 12 cents exceeding $25 and not exceeding $50;
30 cents exceeding $50.and not exceeding $100. ^?be insurance fee
is to be paid by meanB of postage
stamps affixed to the parcel.
Parcels for insurance must be
handed in at a post office or to a
rural mail carrier. A receipt will
be given the sender, which must
be produced" in case of a claim
being made.
Claims must be made by the
sender to the postmaster at   the

Every man engaged in business
or in any way interested in the
material prosperity of his town
and vicinity; or ia the educational affairs of his. community, or in
the moral purity of society in his
neighborhood, is under great obligations to his local paper, and
should give it liberal support, not
as a charity, bat as duty to himself, to his family and neighbors,
and as a wise investment of his
money.
"The golden rule of life is to
dance, to dance again,_and fehen.to
go on dancing," said Sir James
Cantile, the well-known physician,
recently. Like Tennyson's eternal brook, .dancing goes on for
ever.-"
The latest developments is the
"dance breakfast." An enterprising manager of a London hotel
thought that if diners could dance
between soup and fieh, breakfasters
could dance between porridge and
bacon. So he has started dance
breakfasts, to the joy of those who
love new sensations. We may
now spring straight from a fried
egg into a fox-trot.
Reversing the usual order, dancing has worked backwards by the
clock. Evening dancing has
spread to afternoon dancing, and
afternoon dancing to morning
dancing. So we may be tripping
it with the first cockcrow.
At a meeting of the largest ore
shippers of the Slocan district with
the officials   of   the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co.,  held in
Nelson last week the main question
discussed was whether shippers desired "spot" settlement for ores or
-preferred 90 day settlements.   The
practically unanimous opinion was
.in favor of the. "spot" method and
Mr-   Warren   then   advised    the
meeting that if   present- arrangements were perfected the smelter
would make settlement on day of
sampling by issuing 90-day accepted drafts.    This would entail borrowing of funds by shippers at the
banks of   the district and consequent loss of interest charges,  but
no difficulty would be encountered
in   negotiating    the   acceptances.
Settlement for lead would be for
90%, based upon the London price,
at leaBt until domestic consumption
became equal to production,  when
Montreal prices    would   be  substitutes for those of London.  Lead
ores containing zinc would not be
subject to the heavy penalties of
the present schedule in case where
zinc content did  not exceed 10%."
Silver settlements would be made
upon "foreign" priceB, the smelter
paying 95 per cent of the contents
of the ore.    Mr.  Warren also intimated that,the base  treatment
rates might be decreased, although
some figuring upon the result of
operations   during  the  past    six.
months would_be necessary before
any    definite   promise   could be
made.    A flat cut of 10 cut of 10
'cents a unit on zinc consents above
10% under schedule was also ten-,
tatively promised.

the lawyer^ "in the habit of talking

"Thc most intcrsting thing in aO

Two Spots On

Caused  By  Internal   Explosions^
Two huge spots, about 20,000 miles
in. diameter, arc now visible on thc
sun's surface close . together and
nearly centrally located. There still
exists a great deal of uncertainty as
I to thc cause of these spots; innumerable suggestions have been made as
to tlicir cause, but an. entirely satisfactory explanation has not yet appeared to have been advanced. It
seems probable that a number of circumstances bring them about rather
than one single one. Bodies falling
into the sun; internal explosion's;
convcclivc currents disrupted by tidal action of thc planets; all these
very likely jilay somc part in thc
phenomena, but there arc circumstances that these,alone will not explain. Sometimes a great disturbance docs not project very .much material upward and again sometimes a

Plans    Have    Been    Placed

Plans for transferring somc of the
surplus livestock of thc southern part
of the province to districts - in thc
north where a large quantity of feed
is available, havc, been placed before
4hc heads of somc of the banking
institutions, in Alberta by Hon.

Mr. Hoadley proposed . that - the

various "branches arrange ' to extend
credit lo farmers -in the north desiring to. purchase more cattle where
tlie . stock can be obtained .in the
south preferably .from farmers in'-the
dry districts who have obtained loans!
from .the- banks during the last "few
years. .-.'-'������   -     --.-.-    - ''   -

impossible, Mr. Hoadley pointed-out,

"thc British, invention of the tank has
been recognized in 1916 as one of thc
most important of 'the whole history
of war, and tanks of various patterns
wcrc built and adopted by the French
and American armies, as well as by
the British. A special Tank Corps
for lhc use of tanks was formed in the
British army, and a system of tactics
worked out. The forms of tanks
wcrc uscd���a large, heavy type, and a
much smaller and lighter pattern
which could move faster and outrun
any infantry and, indeed, most cavalry where the conditions were reasonably favorable. The tank of the
large class was similar to the. battleship in naval war;,the tank of the
smaller class resembled."the destroyer. With these valuable machines a
great economy of infantry could bc
effected, and thousands of .valuable
lives saved." Lieut.-.Col. J. E. C.

Edmonton, Alta.���The trial shipment of fat beef cattle lhat was sent
to--Scotland in June by the provincial
department .of agriculture, resulted in
a net loss to the government. Thcy
show an average cost per head* of

$188.88. There were tjiirty-six licad
of export steers in the shipment. Thc
animals wcrc shippe'd to Glasgow and
were there sold at the .public market

When the steers left Edmonton
thcy stood-at a cost to the government of $168.17 per animal, and the

Added to this cost were thc expenses of.the attendant, bank charges
and other overhead expenses, bringing the total cost per head to $302.07.
Records kept en route show that.there
was practically no shrinkage injuiy

Pasture Scarce.
Mexico Cit3.���The economic situation in'the southern' districts bf Lower California is described-as intoler-
hblc by travelers recently returning
from that region.' Rainfall has been
exceedingly light in that region for

trade there and their visits are at
many weeks' intervals. '
\, Protests to President Obrcgon by

Ottawa.���During the past two
months large quantities of American
grain have been shipped via Montreal,
says a report issued by the transportation branch of the Dominion Bureau
of Statistics. This grain is shipped
via"*Gcdrgian Bay ports and by railto-'
���Montreal'and1 also' by the .water route
'through 'the Welland Canal.
Thc premium on American money
and thc elevator charges at New-
York make the all-water - Canadian
route from Chicago, Duluth and Milwaukee about 2 3-4 cents per bushel
less than via Buffalo and New York.
Both the lake and rail and ��� all-rail
rate from Port Arthur and Fort
William to Montreal is over 5 cents a
bushel less than to New York. The
payment in Canadian currency reduces this still further and more than
off-sets the heavier-insurance rates
