The card party and social given

night   was p.   huge   success   from
every point of view.    It being the
1st of April many surprising  incidents were sprung.    The refresh-1
ment   table   was   fairly  groaning
with    the   good    things   to    eat,
among   them   being some   dainty
looking caudy but on partaking of
same it was found that the candy
was filled with bran,  peas,  beans,
etc.    Many were fooled with this
good joke   The price of admission
wae rpgulated by  measuring;  the
fat had to pay fat prices and the
lean go off with a smaller fee, according to their meaturement.
Besides cards there were many
amusing and novel games all of

While the closing of Anaconda,

sane course that. could be pursued
to meet unprecedented conditions.
With a surplus of. approximately
1.000,000,000 pounds above ground

World's Greatest Secret
Lord Headley Tells Of Latent Power
Not Yet Discovered.
The hidden power of "electronic
energy���the world's greatest and
most terrible secret"���as he described it, was dealt with by Lord Head-
ley, in his presidential address to the
Society of Engineers at Burlington
House, Piccadilly.
This power, he said, had been described as so great and terrible that it
had been seriously put forward thatj
scientific    research    in  this direction
should  be stopped  until  it was  felt
row, because the leaders" oi lhe wolf-1 and nostrils
pack have gone down?"
Dorkin turned .quickly, his face
"Sagawa!" he exclaimed, and held
out his hand.
The Algonquin took it, held it, as
his dark eyes probed thc woodsman's
soul. An answering smile heightened the beauty of his features, as hc
said:���       _      _
"Two night ago, the white wolf
spoke to Sagawa of his brother's
danger, and lie is iicrc. Hc would
havc_ been here sooner, but Gitche
Manitou willed otherwise. Now
Sagawa's heart is at rest. Hc has
not had to slay the man whose track
hc followed on the red trail. Manitou, thc great and good, saved him
J hat. But Sagawa was with White
Hawk, the slayer of his aged brother,
Farncy, before his spirit sought its
Jong trail, and listened to that which
"White Hawk wished to tell him."
"White Hawk!" cried Dorkin.
"Then it was hc who killed Daddy
"It was White Hawk," said the Indian. "H.e wished to secure the box
containing thc shiny baubles of gold,
which thc aged trapper had taken
:from him eighteen summers ago.
"White Hawk stole thc box, which two
Bights ago hc gave into Sagawa's
hands, with a message. Look, the
_>ox as here."
From his bosom the Algonquin
'took a small tin box and handed it to
Thc woodsman took it wondcringly,
and turned it over in his hands. Yes,
assuredly, it was the same box which
Daddy Farncy had told him contained
something relating to   Willow.
"Sagawa," he asked, "where did
this box come from? How did your
aged white brother, Farney, come to
get  possession  of it?"
"1 belonged to the man and woman who we're drowned in Hell's
."Rapids, near the Basin of White
Water, many summers ago," answered the Indian. "White Hawk and
his brother, Darbo, were in the canoe
with them when it capsized. The
man and woman died of exposure, but
the baby was saved."
"The baby?"
Thc Indian smiled. "Little Willow, the Wisp," hc said softly; "why,
surely,-my aged brother, the trapper,
told you?"
Dorkin did not answer. Hc stood,
turning the box over and .over, in his j
hands. - He remembered, what the
dying trapper had tried td tell him.
He remembered what Dayton had told
iiim concerning this man and woman
.who had lost, their lives in the river
.near the Basiri' of White/Water. But
Dayton had said nothing to.him of a
baby being left -behind.. Could he
havc-knowri? hc wondered,'
"Sagawa," he. said slowly, ''Daddy
Farncy wanted to tell me���but" he died
before he 'could -say. what 3 would
jiqw" hear.from your lips.".
The Indian  folded, his arms.    '--'_
-"On the night-Sagawa went to. tlie
rescue  .of    the    white '. people    and
brought them to the   village   of   his
tribe, a boy baby was. born in Parsley's cabin.   Darwana, White Hawk's"
mother, was there at the time.    -But
Manitou. seeing the trail ahead rough
and-unevcii took thc little spirit back
to the placcof sky-spaces and Himself.- - Darwana, who had a mother's
:heart,,remcmbcrcd thc little one which
had been saved from the waters. She
took the dead baby away, and:left -the
Other in its-place."   '.-""..
- "And; Darwana?     'Js. she, still, living, Sagawa?"--.- '......'-. '-'���.���

Dorkin held put his hand....  -_
"Sagawa has always provcrt'himself

do nothing. Darbo entered the for-
est. His rifle spoke. Then hc crept j
back again to thc other. Sagawa
heard him laugh and say to his trail-
mate, 'The debt you owed Savage for
what hc did to your friend, is paid.'
That is Savage, outlaw from thc Hudson Bay district," pointing to thc dead
"Then," said Dorkin slowly, gladly,
"my men have spilled no blood. Oh,
1 am glad!"
"And Sagawa is glad with his
brother," said thc Algonquin. "Hereafter hc will stay close beside him,
and forget the read trail."
"Ah, Sagawa, that is good news,"
smiled Dorkin. "And Darbo?" hc
asked quickly.
"Hc has gone." Thc Indian pointed away. "Gone far oil to other
fields. Sagawa heard him say that,
now ,'he must go far away to the forest of Quebec, for his life here is
worth  nothing."
"And thc other man, the one who
was with him, Sagawa?"
"He disappeared into the forest."
"Come," said Dorkin, "let us go up
to the cabin."
Dorkin skirted his own cabin and
led Sagawa to that of his helper. "My
brother must eat and rest," lie said;
and the Indian answered, "It is well."
Hc left Sagawa partaking of the
food which the smiling. French woman placed before him, and telling
him that he would speak with him
again, went out.
Hc still carried the little box, and
his heart grew heavy as he realized
what effect that which he must say
might have on two lives, at least.
In the edge of .the butternut grove
he found the prisoners, still bound,
being guarded by his allies from the
He came up and spoke to them.
"You men havc been guilty of a
grave offence," he said sternly. ' "I
could punish you if I so desired. But,"
his eyes sweeping the shamed faces
of the prisoners, "I happen to know
that, in coming here on the errand
which has failed, you havc been largely..' the dupes of another. Consequently, I am inclined to show you
leniency.".   '.-...
He looked them .over again, gravely.
Some of'.the-faces were sullen, but
the majority, of lhe culprits were, hc
knew, willing to accept liberty on his
terms. - \. ' '_ -

Says   Present   Programme   Is
Not Irreducible.
Assertions that the Japanese naval
programme is being followed for the
purpose of competing with thc United
States navy were denounced as "preposterous and absurd," by Vice-Admiral Tomosaburo Kato, Japanese
minister of marine, in an interview
with the .Associated Press. He declared Japan was not trying to compete with the Unijed States navy, and
that the Japanese naval programme
had been formulated so that the island empire could be defended against
any emergencies arising in thc Far
East alone.
During the course of the interview!
thc minister emphasized the fact that
Japan's project to have a fleet of
eight battleships and eight battle
cruisers, not over eight years old,
was not necessarily irreducible. He
indicated that if all the naval powers
would agree to a "naval holiday," he
would be willing to enter into such
an agreement, and would not insist
upon the completion of the naval
programme projected by the government.

Smut Treatment for Oats
Method  Devised  for  Treating  Oats
Without Necessity of Drying
'A method for treating oats for
smut without entailing the necessity
of drying them has been devised. In
using this method one part of formaldehyde is added to ten parts of
water and applied to the oats by
means of a common quart sprayer.
Spread the grain out on a clean floor,
canvas or wagon box. As the grain is
shovelled from one-pile to another,
each shovelful is sprayed with thc
sprayer held close .to the grain. -Use
the solution in;thepro'portion of one
quart of'the solution, to five bushels
of grain. "Coyer thc grain with sacks
or canvas which-have been sprayed
thoroughly, and leave covered for
four hours. By using this ' small
amount of the solution the seed is. not
wet, docs not swell, and may be"treated any. time beforc.planting. ��� This
method is recommended by the authorities.in.Idaho. " ' - .-
' A similar method has" been, used
with success; by the Central Experimental' Farm, which.. recommends it
for oats, .barley and wheat. . The
Idaho authorities, - however, do .not
recommend it for anygraih- but oats,
Reports Tend to Indicate that New
Fodder Destined to Become a
Standard Crop.
Now that winter feeding of stock
is almost finished, reports on the results of sunflower feed are coming in
from many sources, and all tend to
indicate that this new fodder is destined- to become a. standard crop in
the western provinces. It seems that
practically everybody who has experimented with a few acres of sunflowers
is going to at least double the acreage this year and silos will be springing up in every district throughout
the west. ..
A typical example of what this silage means to .the dairy farmer is given by. Bert Tiffin, of Lethbridge, Alberta. For the purpose of comparison it may be mentioned that in December,. January and February, 1919,
his cows produced milk to the value
of $1,128.93. v
Last year Mr. Tiffin planted five
acres to sunflowers and from thc
same number of cows he got milk
that brought him $1,648.04, an increase
of $519.11. His silo cost less than
$500. Previously hc needed all his'j
quarter section to supply feed to his
herd but'his sunflower yield was so
large that he has been able to spare
fifty tons of alfalfa, worth about $700,
for the market, so that even with the
expenses of his silo lie will havc a
net cash surplus of more than $700.
Adding in the value of his silo he has
found that the sunflower fodder has
meant more than $1,200 increased revenue to him. '���.
W. P. Huff, a sunflower enthusiast
who is in the dairy business fairly
extensively near Edmonton, recently
had an opportunity of testing the
feeding value of sunflower ensilage
over green feed and hay for dairy cattle. Last fall he put up spmewhat
over two hundred tons of sunflowers,
but this was all fed up before the first
of the year. Some of the ensilage
round the walls of the-silo froze, and
as -it was more or lc'ss difficult to get
ft out it was left until the weather
would be warmer.
Lat<y thc weather became mild and
caused the ensilage that was frozen to
the walls to thaw out and fall to the
floor of the silo. There was enough
ensilage to feed the herd of "over seventy head of cows for a week. Dur-
i ing that period the milk flow was noticed to increase per cow per day from
two to two and a half pounds, which
for the seventy cows'amounted to a
considerable gain.

" Finding the Equilibrium
Tim slow and difficult process-of getting the business and productive
activities of the country back to a normal level, to which reference was
made in t_his- column' last week, can, let it be repeated with emphasis, bc
only successfully accomplished through co-pperation on the part of all concerned, and that means everybody. , It cannot bc accomplished by any one
group in the.State standing out and insisting on thc acceptance of thcir-
own demands irrespective of the effect on others. There must be compromises, resulting in readjustments.        "
' For one thing, it becomes increasingly evident that thc Federal Government must revise their present systems and methods of levying taxation
on business and-productive enterprise, whether such-business bc agricultural production, industrial manufacturing, or commerce in its wholesale
and retail departments. Present systems and methods are confusing, complicated and generally unsettling, and constitute a discouragement to enterprise, initiative and increased production. What is now required is something simple, inexpensive in operation", yet withal capable of producing a
large .revenue to meet the pressing needs of the nation. Such a system is
to be found, wc believe, in thc removal .of the present taxation levies on
business profits, and the introduction of a general and uniform tax on all
business turnovers���that is, a small tax on-gross sales in all lines of busi-'
ness activity.
If thc Federal Government will take this step, then all business will
know exactly where it stands and can proceed to work out permanent policies with a vicw^o expansion and'increased production, thus reducing and
gradually eliminating unemployment, increasing thc purchasing power of the
country to absorb the larger volume of commodities produced, and at the
same time bringing about a reduction in prices which will place such commodities within reach of a much larger number of people.
It should bc clear to all people, and especially to Governments, that the
secret of national prosperity is to bc found in well balanced industry. That
is, that thc production of every branch of industry in. which people arc en

and that depends upon thc price which the consumers havc to pay for them.

' f.���Glorifying God.in Your Body (I.
j        Cor. 6:19, 20).
It should be noted that the last
j clause of verse 20 is omitted in the
I Revised Version and thc best manu-
! scripts. Thc conclusion of Paul's ar-
! gument is, "therefore glorify God' in
j your body."  i '
1. Thc Christian's body is the temple of thc lioly Ghost (v. 19). God's
dwelling place on earth is now thc redeemed human body instead of thc
temple at Jerusalem. If the sinless
Spirit is to dwell- in the body it must
bc kept clean To defile or abuse thc
body in any way is to insult the Spirit
and commit the most awlul sacrilege.
This truth apprehended solves forever
the.-problem of licentiousness, gluttony, use of tobacco, the abuse or
neglect of the body in any way whatsoever.
2. The Christian's body is God's
property (v. 19). Being God's temple, the proprietary right is in God
and not man. Being thc property of
the Lord, .the Christian's motto is;
"Whcthcrc therefore yc cat or drink,
or whatsoever ye do, do all to the
glory of God (I: Cor. 10:31). "Holiness unto thc Lord" ought to bc written over our bodies.
3. The Christian's body has becn
bought (v. 20). The price paid"to redeem thc body was the precious blood
of Christ (I. Peter:. 1:18, 29). Wc estimate things by what they cost.
When wc estimate our bodies in that
light we will bc very jealous of their
purity.      Guarding our health is part
have upon employment or upon sales.
A striking example of tlie truth of this statement was shown in New
York City last fall. Thc printers there wanted more wages and a board
of arbitration awarded it to them, without, apparently, taking into consideration the state of the printing business and its relation to thc general business situation. The result was that thc wage increase, by increasing thc
cost of printing at a time when the public had less money to spend lor printing, aggravated the situation, resulted in such a substantial decrease in work
that hundreds of men were laid off, and the actual amount paid in wages
was smaller andnot larger than before thc increase was made.

any other prescription which would give
the same all-round service and satisfaction that a box of Zam-Buk does?
��� Zam-Buk is a combination of powerful,
healing, herbal extracts, so refined and
compounded that wherever there is any
kind of soreness of the flesh, or diseased
tissue or abnormal condition (such as inflammation, festering or blood-poisoning)
it almost immediately soothes and heals.
It stops bleeding." It is highly aniiseptic
���kills disease germs. It is suitable alike
for the hardened skin of the worker or
the tender sensitive skin of a child.
Zam-Buk is 100% pure herbal medi~
oitie. It contains no animal fat nor
mineral impurity.   It cannot go rancid.
"For seven years we have used
Zam-Buk in our homo" writes H. B.
Andresen, of 1107, E. 22nd. St.,
Minneapolis. "We simply could not get
along without it. Whenever any of the
children, my wife or I, happen an
accident, we promptly apply Zam-Buk.
It saves many a doctor', bill."
Fear Grasshopper Hague
Saskatchewan is Ready to Cope With
Trouble When It Comes.
An extensive outbreak of thc grasshopper plague is feared by Saskatchewan agricultural authorities''' this
spring. But thc- province will not
be caught napping. Already 70 tons
of arsenic is now on thc way from the
east for thc provincial department of
agriculture, which is making preparations for the anti-grasshopper campaign.
The department plans to concentrate, in Regina, sufficient material
to supply the whole province with
poisoned bait. Practtcally the same
form of organization for combating
thc insects as used last year will
again be in vogue.
Autos Hard on Roads
Suction of Rubber Tires Said to be
Old Roman roads which had stood
up under the ,wheel traffic of 2,000
years were domolished in ten years
by the destructive suction of rubber
tires. The road from Durham to
London,, more ��� than two hundred
miles long, was known as Watling
street, ran to thc Roman wall along
the Cheviot Hills which kept out the
invading Picts and Scots. Having
a perfect foundation, the road was
easily surfaced and maintained
through all those centuries, But the
motor-car made necessary its complete re-construction. It was the
same with the more famous Appain.
Way out of'Rome.
Many a man who thinks his persuasive powers arc sufficient to control
the affairs of a nation wouldn't even
make a good book* agent.

employer will not long bc able to do so, and unemployment is thc inevitable result. There is a relationship between industry and all thc other industries which must be taken into account and maintained.
There is also an equilibrium, a natural balance, which must be maintained between thc occupations in which people are engaged. That balance
must bc sustained in order that- thc products or services,,��, each group may

Labor, employer and employee.

The ...Christian's   life is'more than

1. It is a race (vv. 24, 25). In order
to win a prize there must bc self-denial and definite exertion. The Chris-
tion obtains life by contact with Jesus
Christ through faith (John 3:16; 3:36;
5:24).     Tki.

salvation (life) at the beginning, God
places before him definite rewards as
incentives to-exertion. The Christian believes to get life, but works, for
rewards. In the. Olympian games
only one could hope to get the prize,
but in the Christian race there is a
reward waiting fo*' every.one who disciplines himself and runs; -As the
racer in these games mastered his' desires and abstained from everything
which might hinder him to win. the.
prize, so the Christian will make any
sacrifice-to. "win. Thc-prize in'thc
Grecian .-games' was corruptible, but
the"prize of-tlie Christian is incorruptible. If thc heathen would practice'
siicli- self-denial regardless .of its pain
for a garland-of pine leaves, shall not
thc Christian turn-from bodily" indulgences of every kind so as to obtain

'" "The International..; 'Council of

simpler mode of life.      "There's
'nothing like example, ���
The evening is the hour when crafty Satan preaches
most eloquently. It is also the hour when he can gather
the largest and most attentive audience. In our great
cities Satan's churches are crowded every evening. But,
fortunately, the evening hour is also the hour in which
the good angel can gather the largest audience and he
who would baffle Satan's influence must preach in the
evening. The evening is" the hour when the . protesting
power of home is greatest; it is the hour when its protection is -most needed.
If men would remember that women can't always be
smiling, who have to cook the dinner, answer the bell
half a dozen times, get rid of a neighbor who has dropped
in, tend to a sick baby, tie up a cut finger of a two-year-
old, gather up the playthings of a four-year-old, tie up
the head of a six-year-old on skates, and get an eig'ht-
year-okl ready for school, to say nothing of sweeping,
cleaning, etc.. A woman with all these to contend with
may claim it a privilege to look and feel a little tired
sometimes, and a word of sympathy would not be too much
to expect from the man, who, during the honeymoon,
wouldn't let her carry as much as a sunshade.

There is as much truth and poetry in the lines:
"Laugh and the world laughs with you;
Weep,.and!you weep atone.?',; ������:'
And perhaps it is well. There is inevitable sadness
enough in each lot without adopting that of others.
Sympathy for real troubles should always be- given, along
with what help is possible. But there are many persons
who, especially in their own families, talk too much of
their own ills and troubles, although they are always smiling and genial among strangers, and ever ready with a
pleasant "thank you," for every service- rendered. If
they, can rise above their despondencies in the presence of
strangers, with a persistent effort they can stay above
them at home.till they may in the end forget a part of
them, at least in finding how much better they are liked
by those around them. If you would pass/, successfully
through life, wear a bright face and a pleasing manner
even though they may sometimes mask a heavy heart.
