Turning a Knob
Science has dene much to soften the

doubted    that   it    has brought more

the radio.     Donald -MacMiilan, shut fn
by  Arctic  ice  and   snow,  maintained
contact with civilization  by wireless.

pari of tho day's work.      Ono doesn't

What breaks the heart and saps the

labor is lho loneliness and homesickness.

May Charge Fine" To  King
Auto  Mechanic Claims Car He  Drove
Is Owned By George V.
Jf Bruno Biclfeldt, an automobile
mechanic, made a truthful- statement
when he was arraigned before Magistrate Charles A. Oberwager in the
New York Traflic Court on a charge of
driving an automobile without license
plates, the $2 fine he paid will come
from the purse of the King of England.
Biclfeldt, who is 25 years old, is a
German, with very little knowledge of
English. He was arrested by Policeman Pair of tho Trallic Division when
lie was driving the car in Broadway.
"That car's -fourteen years old and
is owned by the King of "England,"
Biclfeldt told the magistrate through
an interpreter. "The King sent it
over here to be entered in the automobile show,-aud it has been on display in a window of a r-tore on Broadway. When I drove tho car out for a
spin, 1 didn't know I ought lo havc a
license lo drive the car of the King of
"What kind of a car is this?" asked
iho magistratc-of Flair. ..
"Well, your honor," was the reply,
"that car might belong to some kind
of royalty at that.     It had shields and
trappings and monograms and coats of |
arms and other things all over it."
"Who's going lo pay this tine, Biel-

reply, "and I'll send the King a bill."

Measuring "Our Time
Different   Countries   Have   to    Make
Their Own Reckoning
What we cali "lime" is measured by
the intervals at which any fix*-d*point
on our 'earth'appears exactly underneath the sun.
To get tho reckoning, we imagine a
lino drawn .round fhe earth-. As it Is
always revolving, this line must from"
time to lime arrive directly under the
fixed sun. hi Britain the line is
drawn through Greenwich Observatory
and so is 'termed Greenwich Time.
Ii the whole world, however, used the
same line, some places would be marking "- noon in the middle, ' of
ihe night, to get" over this, different countries havo drawn their own
different imaginary lines. So we get
Pacific Time, Central Time and so on.
As we want a perfect hventy-four
hour pcriod-to reckon-by, we got over
the difficulty by averaging -or "taking
the mean of" these little irregularities. Astronomers give us tables to
show that on certain days and.in certain places we must add or subtract
so many-minutes or seconds'to or from
the sun's time to arrive at our perfect

First Record of Eclipse
Date Given By Chinese Was October
22, 2137   B.C.
The earliest recorded eclipse of the
sun look place on October 22, 2137
B.C. - The evidence for it, clouded in
the intricacies of .Chinese poetry and.
Chinese chronology, makes (he date
loss positive than it sounds; but it is
safe to say that for all of the four
thousand years and moro that, intervened between il and lhc recent
eclipse man iias been observing these
extraordinary phenomena and drawing . his own conclusions. Ancient
man was without ,tho advantages of
chemistry or planetary dynamics,
but for all that ho understood that his
life depnded upon the sun, and it ls
diflicult to imagine a more terrifying
catastrophe than its sudden disappearance from the' heavens.   -
The first scientific expedition sent
out to observe an eclipse in America,
according to Professor Mitchell, was
that, sent from Harvard University in
17S0 to Penobscot Bay, but it is interesting to learn that at-the eclipse ot

Ruins of Buried City Found in State

prove among the greatest archaeological finds in Nortli American his
lory, according to Governor James G.
Scrugham, or Nevada. ',    ' ���   .
"We believe we are about to open
up the largest Pueblo ever found on
this continent," Governor' Scrugham
said. "The ruins seem to stretch for
six miles, fifty feet or so above the
high water mark of the river. They
are about a mile wide. The town's
population was probably 15,000.
"Thus far we have excavated forty
houses, ahd eleven bodies, ten of them
women. Ancient pottery, estimated
2,000 years old, was found with the
"Walls of the houses, were of .adobe,
plastered,on woven rushes: The clay

The floors were paved with stones.

were found on the'women. The jewels
were highly polished and shaped like

Greece Willing To Disarm
But Asks Other Nations to . Sign
Guarantee Pact-
Geneva.���Greece will di.-arm,, but
only whfn the "nations f-ign a general
treaty offering real guarantees. Thai
is tho gist af a communication received by the League of Nations from the
Athens Government, * which, like tlie
other governments, had been Imltcri
to set forth iis attitude on the resolution-of the league assembly that no
governments should exceed in the
future their current yvav expenditure
on armaments.
London.���-The impossibility of ever-
securing a sufliciently'- adequate disarmament of Germany is being slowly recognized, in official circles here,
and plans for tho eventual evacuation
of Cologne are being made, although
Britain has made it quite clear thai
she will not act independently ��� of
Franco or without her approval.
Britain is anxious that Germany
should satisfy the investigators pf the
disarmament commission so thai Britain can write finis to her five-year
chapter of guardianship.
Meanwhile it i.s repbrl ed .that Germany is' training thousands of pilots
for the lime when the ban will be
removed and t'Jie British Government
is; most anxious to get Germany into
a pact where she will be pledged to.
remain disarmed.
To Hinder Immigration
Alleged.  That    There    Is   -Organized
-    Propaganda Against Dominions
London.���With reference to -the
allegation lhat* there is organized propaganda against the migration of Briif- '
ish . residents ' to Lho dominions, Sir
George "MacLaren Brown, European
manager oT the Canadian Pacific Kail-
way, .agrees that there is -a-''.'subtle-
form-.-off ������Propaganda in existence
against emigration from Great ..Britain-
but says it is a somewhat delicate subject to discus-s.
Sir Joseph Cook, Australian high
commissioner in London, in an interview, says there is 110 shadow of a
doubt that tliere is a'definile and distinctly <_ini_.ler scheme of propaganda
being directed against emigration gen-i
erally and that the propagandists -are
making use of the failures among the
new settlers in the dominions to give
expression to their views.
As has been indicated in recent
Canadian Press cables, most of the
immigrants . in Canada who have
writttfn "home" lately have rejected
tho suggestion ihat'there is in existence propaganda against emigration
from tho Old Land to the Dominion.

Mineral  Finds
Mean Activity
The more one reviews fehe min-
iBg situation in British Columbia,
the more is fehe conclusion apparent that conditions were never
better or brighter. Usually this ie
the phrase of fehe optimist, who
always believes in looking toward
the light and who sees fehe reflection of better times in fehe distance.
In this instance, however, one haB
but to refer to concrete cases.
In fehe southeastern part > of fehe
province, which thirty years ago
saw its first turmoil of excitement,
wonderful discoveries have been
made. All these are on old-feime
properties. Greenwood, for a decade or more a ghost of the town
of twenty years ago, is the scene
of somo of the best finds. A.t the
Providence mine, gold ore has been
struck, the richness of which is
believed to be greater than that of
any ore discovered in British Columbia. This in a mine that has
been idle twenty years. Almost
parallel discoveries have been
made on fehe Strathmore, near by.

Princess Kathleen Makes Maiden Voyage
On her preliminary.trials the "Princess Kathleen", built at the Clydesbank yards of John Brown and Company
for service on the Canadian Pacific run between Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle, accomplished all that was
expected of her, and the Canadian engineers and other officers who conducted the"trials and who will bring this and
a sister ship, the. "Princess Marguerite", still under construction to Vancouver, expressed themselves as being
entirely satisfied. With a speed of 22 ^ knots the new steamships will considerably reduce time between ports.
Built with the object of speeding up and affording even better and more convenient service than is now offered; the
two Princesses will be, without a shadow of doubt, the most elaborate yet tastefully beautiful vessels operating on
the Pacific Coast. Three hundred and sixty-eight feet in length, their lines were specially designed for the service to
which they will be put and those who have seen the new vessels describe them as being beyond comparison with any
others of their kind. Five decks are given over to the accommodation of the passengers, whose private quarters and
public rooms are most spacious and luxuriously fitted up. The "Princess Kathleen" sailed from the Clyde on
January 15, expecting to complete the journey to Vancouver in about thirty days, her route being via the Azores,
the West Indies and the Panama, where she will pick up fuel oil. 'She will be placed in passenger service soon
iifter her arrival.   The, "Princess Marguerite" is scheduled to leave the Clyde on March 15.
