The amount of $2,896,174 shown,
above distributed in 1924 by no
means represents the total of net
profit earned during that year. In
nearly all cases substantial same
are set aside from profits to the
credit of surplus and reserve. accounts. Profits 'accruing through,
private "companies and individual
mining enterprises asf a- rule are
not.-given publicity :as dividends,
as is. the ease/with the-larger companies', so "that no .record of. these

Rock Greek  was  visited  by  a
big conflagration early  Saturday
morning, May 30th, when the Co-
Operative store, Rusch's  garage,
barn and a house wrere destroyed.
The fite started in the  store, the
building owned by Captain King
and the store owned by  a  syndicate of local farmers.   The building including the dance  hall and
the stock in the store were covered by insurance, but a $600 piano
owned by the Farm Women  had
no   insurance.      The   barn   and���/
garage "building  were owned by.
J. Luce  with no   insurance.    A.
Rusch'-s loss"of tools and machinery is partly covered by insurance.
S. Dahl's house had tobe dynamited to keep the fire from spreading.    For a time it appeared that
the whole block.of buildings was
doomed, but a gallant fire'brigada
was  formed,   who   succeeded   in
saving the rest of��� the  buildings.
The fire was spectacular," flames
rising  high  and soon  attracted
quite a large crowd, who arrived
in motor cars aud on-foot. Heroic
efforts  only., on  the  part "of the
fire-fighters prevented the spread
'ofthe  fire  to Mr.   Luce's house,
and the Rock Creek Hotel.    W.
Moll had the misfortune to have .
his car destroyed in the fire; also
one   of   Arthur  .Rusch's.      The
origin of the-fire is a mystery.

"Dont's ' and "Do s
With the coming of tin. summer vacation period, tlio opening of summer
cottages, lho flocking of peojilo lo rcsoris. and tho inauguration of automobile
touring parlies, ihe time has also come when all those who enjoy the advantage-, of these.iiloat.ilre.; and health-giving pursuits should giw hood to the
U.klng of those little pn-cautloiis wliich require attention if real beneflf and not
h.trin is to ves'.ilt lrom a holiday. %
t'eople" lirkif. In cities and towns with all modern conveniences at hand
are sometimes a pi lo take unnecessary chances, and to neglect matters which
are so e-.f-e::!l;il to tiie maintenance! of good health and the obtaining of full
enjoyment a:ir.l hrneCn, from the relaxation which .summer vacations afford.
Because o. the.? JJttle oversights it has beeu demonstrated on more than one
occasion .lint epidemics of sickness have had their origin in summer camps
and vacation resorts.
Quite a f.:\v "don'l.s" are urged upon the attention of summer campers
nnd vacaiioniiU, but all too froc]iienl.ly the things which ought to be done are
overlooked. For example, people are urged not to leave a camp fire until
they are assured that ihe last spark has been extinguished. They are warned
not to unnecessarily cut down or mutilate trees and shrubs. Touring motorists are even asiced not to" pluck wayside wild flowers only lo have them
wither and die in a few hours, but to leave them blooming in their natural
slate, thus adding to the beauty of the highways and adding to the pleasure
of all.
s But there are "do's" which are equally, possibly more, important. The
city cannier, uki.i1 to turning a tap in order to obtain pure water, should pay
close attention lo the source and quality of the water ho uses for drinking
and cooking purposes. Disposal of camp refuse and garbage demands careful
attention, lu towns and cities where there is ihethodic.it collection aiid destruction or such waste matter by the municipal health authorities, people are
apt to forget, tliat at camp and in summer resorts that duty involves upon
themselves and that, their own health, as well as of others, and the maintenance of enjoyable surroundings, depends upon how efficiently this is attended
to. The proper thing Is to bury all such mat ter. and bury it, deep. Too
much emphasis canuot be laid upon the importance of proper sanitary arrangements in camps, no matter how small, and at all summer resorts.
ln every summer cottage, and Included iu the equipment, of all touring
parties, there should.be a sniall First .Aid kit containing those few simple but
���essential things required in case bt minor accidents, poisoning, severe sunburn, etc.     3'icmembering tliat a doctor or.nurse may bc many miles distant
such  simple, remedies, and   the easily understood directions which go with
���such a kit, may result not only in relieving pain and-discomfort, but actually
���preventing serious illness.
A little consideration given to these matters a I. ilie opening of fhe camping
season may mean aU'the.difference bef.ween 'a summer .vacation, proving.both
��� enjoyable and beneficial and justV.ie.reyerse. _��� "���'.f V " "-".-' '.    ���/' "1-~       ' ��� -

Italy   Will   Pay   Says   Premier
War Debt to United States Amounts
~    To $2,138,543,852
Italy's sacrifices in the world war
and her Lick of riches entitle her to
be placed in the category of privileged nations in regard to her war debts
to Great Britain and the United States,
in the opinion of Premier Mussolini,
who spoke before the senate on the
foreign affairs budget.
Italy's win- debt, said the premier,
amounted to 100,000,000,000 lire, half
of wliich was to the United States.
(Italy's war debt to the United
States amounts to $2,13S,0'13,852.)
"The Italian Government recognizes its debts and has declared that,
compatible with its present and future
economic and financial situation, il
will face its debts," tho premier said.

The Typical Englishman   .
Portraits Drawn of Him Are Not True
To Life      .
- Foreigners, particularly in those moments when ill-will guides their satirical pencils, have a clear view both of
his outward appearance and of its implied nature. They see him as a thin,
fanged, hollow-cheeked giant, sharp
with tho angles of arrogance and.heavy
with the boots of stupidity ahd didacticism. That portrait of him wc
know to bo unjust; we are prepared
to swear, at any rate, that, contrary
to-tho opinion of European carlcatur.
Isis, a typical Englishman seldom
wears a kilt, and that tho thickness
of his boots is duo rather to. tho cliin-
ato ln which ho is accustomed to live
than to any brutal desire in him to
tread upon tho corns rof sensitive

draw of him when they are annoyed
is indeed inaccurate, but is it tiny more

_    Builds Safer Monoplane
Invention of Famous Dutch Aviator
Will Lessen Danger
Herr Fokker, the famous Dutch aviator, has built a new monoplane" that
is very much safer than any other machine now in usd: By a re-arrangc-
nient of balance and perhaps by other
expedients of construction that he lias
not explained he has produced a plane
that has very slight tendency;to dive
nose foremost when the power Is suddenly shut off, accidently or otherwise.
The other day at Croydon, England, he
showed how he could stall his engine
a thousand feet in the air, and then
with arms^ lolded descend, his mono-1
plane on almost an even keel, to" a]
point where^a safe landing could be
made. A new British aeroplane has
been" designed to accomplish, the same
result by means of slotted wings that
divert the air currents when-- the
plane ceases to move forward, so that
it remains virtually on an even keel.���

Can we producevin Canada a better,

This is tho question that the recently
formed division of education of the
Canadian social hygiene council under
Professor Peter Saudiford and A. D.
Hardie, M.A., have sot out to answer.
For months those experts in conjunction with an advisory committee
composed of biologists, hygienlsts,
psychologists, educationalists and not-
ed figures in the church and women's
advanced knowledge of a protective
character imparled not later than the
age of ten to. both boys and girls.
Tho paramount importance of training children from babyhood in right
habits, and proper attitudes of mind
will be emphasized, while the dangers
ofialoofness or silence about vital subjects on the part of parents will be
pointed out along with the need of
establishing confidential contacts with
their children, and of implanting in
them gradually ah ineradicable respect for themselvos, the family ancl
the race. " -   "
Throughout the recommendations of
this report will run the conviction that
proper education of the young will depend  first  on  instructed  parenthood,

imperative necessity at all times of

Visitors to Pisa taken to the tower
by their guides after they climb the.
winding stairs tb the belfry, aro. led
-around to the lower tshle and invited
to look down. Many after one look
draw back in fright.
.. From the top the effect of the list I.,
so striking as to give one the impression at first that the tower is actually
fulling, and some sensitive travellers,
it is related, have had io be restrained from attempting to jump, the effect
of falling i.s so real.
There, are two other leaning cam,-
paniles in Pisa, and this fact has been
an added argument for those -who assert that the engineers .vof Pisa built
their towers that way because they
wanted to. However, it is hardly
possibly that Donnano and William of
Innsbruck anticipated that their tower
would lean beyond the marks they had
set, even if the specifications had called for a list to the south."

Water Clocks Used
By Ancient Greeks
Hours of Day in Summer Longer Than
Hours of Night
By the ancient Egyptians Iho day
was divided into __���_ hours of equal
length. The Greeks adopted a different system, dividing-the day, that
is, the period between sunrise and
sunset, into 12 hours, and also the"
night. Whence it followed that, ic
was only at two periods of (he >ear
that the length of the hours during tiie
day and night were uniform. In consequence, those who adopted the
Greek sy��te.��'u wore obliged to furnish
their water clocks with a compensating device so that the equal hours
measured by those clocks -should bc
rendered unequal according to tljo
exigencies of the season. In summer, when the period of daylight is
longer than the period of darkness,
the hours of the day were longer'ihan
f tlio hours .of night, b^caus-e day and
, night,    whether * long or short, were
i each divided into 12- hours.
-���This--water-clock��� of the~ancieat
Greeks, also used'by the Romans, was
called clepsydra, from, two Greek
words, meaning to steal water.
