THE INCREASING VALUE OF YOUB
TELEPHONE
Your telephone is of greater value as each month goes by.   With the
steady increase in the number of new telephones you are constantly able to
. talk with a large number of people.   This applies" to  different parts of the
province.
It means to the business man that he is in clote touch -with more people.
As every telephone is a long distance telephone, anyone on the Lower
Mainland or Vancouver Island may be reached at a moment's notice.   The
. conversation is direct, the reply instant.
Don't overlook the cheaper night rates.   Between 7 p. m. and S a. m.,
you can gel three times the day period at the same price.

Keen Competition .
A    BiBhop    of    the- Episcopal   -
Methodist Church and a preacher,
were' sent   to the same room to
Bleep at Conference.     When   the
maid came up to make the bed in
the morning, she   found them on
their    knees    fast   aBleep.     The
preacher was bound to pray longer
than his  Bishop   before   retiring,,
and the Bishop felt that.hejwas in.,
honor   bound   to   offer   the  long
prayer.    These are the extremes of
life, its play and its devotions, and
in both'and in all  the-grades between   the   desire to ' -win can be -
found everywhere,-   Even in dancing there   is   the same   rivalry.
Just now in the  American cities-
they have endurance tests.    One
Cleveland   girl  danced 90   hours
continuously without sleep.    Sev��
eral   girls   danced  for  80 hours.
Think of it, girls dancing for three
days and three nights and a part
of the fourth day I ' Such fierce exertion just for a dance makes a girl
common.    But it is only a vulgar    '
outcropping  of the   mad  race for
pleasure which -is- characteristic of	
the present age. The desire to
excell is - a great aid to progress,
and it should be one of the aims of
Education to turn this instinct into
useful channels.  ..     7 v       .

Burbank's
Greatest Work
Wonderful Results Obtained in Experiments With Plant Life
One of the most remarkable men of
the present clay is Luther Burbank ot
California, who is just now celebrating
the fiftieth anniversary of his wonderful experimentations with plant life.
He believes that "in the development
of the plant lies a great, if not the
greatest, object lesson" for mankind,
because of the possibilities of plants
being "bred and trained and developed
just, as animals, and even children,
can be improved and trained."
By wise selection of the .best/-and
rigid  exclusion  of  the  poorest,  Bur-
bank has great hopes of the progress
of plants and animals.     He believes
that, by crossing, selection and proper
cultivation    persistently    prosecuted,
valuable  results  will  accrue,  and  he
regards this .as .the most.import ant-of
all his half-century of work.-, 7 X X.X.

Country Born and Bred
Advantages of Rural Life Greater than
Many Suppose
"God made the country and man,
made the town," sang Cowper, and
his meaning is obvious. Certainly
tliere is somewhat to 'be said for
country versus town. When the lot
has fallen in "a fair ground" among
pastures and orchards,' fields and
woods, where no hindrance built by
man stands between the house and
the horizon, there is a certain advantage missed by those whose
lives, save for the holidays, are spent
in the strenuous city with all its benefits and amenities. In the country
they have a quickness of eye and ear
and the consequent faculty for looking
and listening. Who looks and listens
outdoors from childhood on, acquires
unconsciously the faculty for remembering natural phenomena. Street
cars and all noises of city traffic deadens the sense of hearing, just as glaring pavements play havoc with the
sense of sight.
There is very great difference, too,
between the loneliness of the eity
and the loneliness of the country.
There was once a Canadian girl who
lived in a country place by the sea.
When taken for a visit to tlie city,
she became homesick at once. She
said there were only to be seen
buildings and houses, and they made
her lonesome. She knew nothing
a'bout the latest fashions or the, newest drawing-room tricks, but she had
a native dignity and a native gaiety
that were all the more charming because she was shy. She knew a good
deal, in an empirical way, about wild
things and tame, and she knew some
good books, though she would reveal
such knowledge in conversation by
merest accident only. There was
once a.-girl in Manitoba���and these
are as one type in a British Dominion
which cares for education���who made
butter and sometimes rode so far after the cattle that, returning across a
fenceless prairie, she steered her
course by the stars. She received her
higher education from her father.
She loved the prairies and preferred
the lonely life. When a rich man
from the home of her forebears in
Scotland, seeking her for his bride,
urged wealth and ease, she answered,
"But I am worth more than that."
Happy is the nation in which such
types of girlhood and womanhood
are multiplied. They made noble
mothers of men. They are for the
sanctities of life, for the instincts of
right influence and right discipline and
of right power in the state. Their
power is both preventive and constructive concerning what touches the
homes'ahd-'trie iife._'.'- Now-when' TTiat'i
'power,,is7 so'-largely" "extended/' they
vote and tliey-speak out';in. terms of
life rather/than in .terms oi/property,
There .are other noble 'types . of

Learning How
To Live
How Opals Received .
Bad Luck Reputation
Sir   Walter  Scott   Introduced   Idea
One of His Works
Opals have lived down the superstition of bad luck long associated wiih
them and have become today "one of
the most fashionable and popular of
gems, P. J. Coffey, President of the
National Jewellers' Association, said
in an address at the annual meeting
of the organization at Chicago.
"Most people assume that the idea'
of' bad luck attaching to the opal is
of immemorial antiquity," said Mr.
Coffey. "The fact is it is less than
a century old. Sir Walter Sc.ott in
one of his last novels, 'Anne of
Geierstein,' published in 1S29, set the
myth going. He introduced into his
romance an imaginary opal to which
he attributed a mystic malignancy
that worked misfortune upon all who
wore it. This fiction was the only
basis the superstition ever had. But
the wide vogue of Sir Walter as a
novelist sent the myth broadcast to
the ends of the earth. For centuries
before his time the opal had been
endowed in popular imagination with

Good Health Depends to a Large
Extent on Proper Diet
It hardly needed the Public Health
Congress to inform us that we have
not yet. learned how to live in towns.
Thc immense expansion in the medical profession is not completely or
even mainly accounted for by the
need of dealing with diseases wliich
a few hundred years ago proved fatal.
Civilization is casting up its new "affections almost as quickly as we deal
with the old, and it does not require any remarkable knowledge or
acumen to trace a very great proportion of these to errors in diet.
Great numbers of physicians and
surgeons would have little to do if
people could be taught to eat wisely;
and this is a science which Is easy of
acquirement now, and its dictates can
be observed by all classes of society. It has been frequently pointed
out that large numbers of people persistently over-eat, and the yearly
visit to a fashionable Spa becomes a
necessity if they are not to contract
disease from their self-indulgence.
Indeed, most doctors know that men
are more liable than women to certain
ailments simply because t-hey continue to eat'foods which their mode of
life makes unsuitable and even dangerous. Men have been accustomed
to criticize women for their absurd
methods of choosing their diet; but,
in point of _fact, women, repeatedly
prove themselves the wiser in their
avoidance of numerous diseases to
which mankind is particularly prone
at present. The Health Congress Js
performang a useful service in draw
ing attention to'the fact that, the
health value of foods differs as widely
as -ihe .;fQCtis themselves. ". VVhat'rire"

he was sailing up the Dalmatian coast
from the Holy Land, figures in a lawsuit recently heard in the Jugo-Slav

The little island, whicli lies about

in gratitude for being saved from the

Cow In Banquet Hall
World's   Champion   Cow   Is   Honored
Guest at Banquet
^Agassiz, B.C.���Led among rows of
tables in a brilliantly lighted banquet
hall, and milked in fhe presence of 30
,members of the British Columbia
Dairymen's Association, here, Agassiz
Segls May Echo, champion butter-producing, cow of the world, was toasted
in foaming glasses of her own milk
here recently. The famous cow was
led into the banquet' hall with a silken rope by a pretty milk maid. She
showed no signs of embarrassment or
flight when a storm of applause-
greeted her.and quietly chewed her
cud when, under the ministration of
her fair attendant, the streams of milk
made bubbling music in ti. silver pail.
Agassiz-Segis May Echo is a five-
year-old Holstein bred and owned by
the, Canadian Government's experimental farm near here. She recently
established a record of 30,880 pounds
of-'milk - in 3G5 days, yielding 1,681
pounds of butter. Her milk record
had been beaten, but her butter record
is far greater than any ever made before in the same period of time.

Facsimile Reproduction Made Possible
By Frenchman's Invention
Paris.���Telegrams transmitted in
the sender's own. handwriting can be
sent ever two telegraph lines open to
the French public for this purpose, one
between Paris and Lyons, and the
other between Paris and'Strasburg.
The invention which renders this
possible is due to_ M. Belin.v the
Frenchman who perfected the system
of the telegraphic transmission of
photographs.
The sender of a telautogram writes
his message with a special ink. The
message is then placed on a rotating
cylinder in the "telautograph" apparatus1 at. the central office in the Rue de
Grenelle. A needle is in contact,
with the cylinder connected with the
telegraphic circuit.
The circuit is broken every time the
needle touches the handwriting and
the movement is reproduced on a-synchronized receiving cylinder at the
other end, at Lyons or Strasburg.
The receiving cylinder will show finally a facsimile reproduction of the
"telautogram."

New.. Zealand would have to do more

cost, he declared.
Geneva.���The temporary armament
committee of the League of Nations
finished its discussion, without coming
lo a vote on Lord Robert-.Cecil's plan
for disarmament and a guarantee
pact among the powers.
It was decided to take up the question later, meanwhile asking the opinion of the league's permanent military commission in regard to the
French counter-project presented by
Col. Requin.
Lord Robert's project, in the opinion of many bf the -leading delegates,
could not be accepted^and a compromise will be necessary in which some
of the features of both his plan and
that of the French will be incorporated. The principal difference-between the two projects is that Lord
Robert demands a complete general
pact of guarantees, while Col. Requin
proposes arrangements by two or
more countries as more likely to result in immediate action in the case
of attack.
One of the greatest blows to Cecil's
project is the announcement by several of the smaller members'-of the
league, that they cannot undertake
any such arrangements. One of
these is Switzerland. The league's
permanent* military commission is
also against the Britisher's plan
which it has declared impracticable.
The substitute suggested Is a partial agreement among a smaller number of the states providing for immediate mutual aid in the case of menace. The compromise plan being discussed would unite these local agreements with the general understanding
and institute provisions for reduction

A survey of the iron ore resources of the province is being
completed by Dr. G. A. Young, of
the Dominion Geological Survey.
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, has undertaken to settle the
question of whether or not there is
sufficient ore in B.C. to warrant
the establishment of an iron and
steel industry.
The policy of the dapartment of
lands regarding colonization, as
announced recently by Hon. T. D.
Pattullo, is the settling of 500
farmers a year on the lands of B.C.
"We will not attempt to bring a
great number of settlers in at
once," be said, "but we will be
careful to inform the prospective
citizen of conditions here. That
number of new settlers every year
would mean a substantial increass
of population and the production
of the province."
Hon. Mr. Pattullo does not believe that the population of British
Columbia is decreasing; rather it is
increasing. Recent reports of
people leaving the province need
not. cause, any worry, he claims,
