J. Henry, secretary of the Canadian mission in London, has written
to the Canadian Trade commission
at Ottawa, in farther answer to
the representations made on the
subject of imperial preference on
Canadian metals, by fehe Associated
Boards of Trade of Eastern British
Columbia, says the  Nelson News.
Secretary Henry's letter, which
has been forwarded to F. A.
Starkey of the Associated Boards,
is as follows:
"There is undoubtedly a market
for zinc and lead in the unifeed
kingdom, and 217,610 tons of lead
of a^tot'al value of over ^7,000,000
sterling were imported during fehe
year ending December 31, 1918.
The zinc imports are nofe so large,
yefe they amounted during fehe
same period to 94,226 tons of a
total of over ,��4,000,000 sterling.
���'The only question is whether it
is possible for British Columbie to
send lead and zinc to this market
and European markets afe competitive prices.
"In this connection I may explain that Mr. Warren of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting company of Canada, visited this
country last autumn, with a view
to seeing whether the .products in
question are- salable here. Mr.
Warren returned to Canada some
months ago, and we have not yet

been favored with his "view "on'the
subject. I would suggest that ife
would be cf advantage to' get into
communication with him, as he
devoted a great deal of time and
care looking into the situation.
"I should perhaps'add that in
fehe case of zinc the British government has entered an agreement
with the Australian government by
which the available surplus of zinc
in Australia for the next 10 years
has to be placed at the disposal of
fehis country. I pointed out the
fact to Mr. Warren, and he was
endeavoring to find out how far
this would affect the supply of zinc
from ofehar parts of the empire.	
"I am endeavoring feo get some
information as to the demand for
lead and zinc in other European
markets. You sre, of coarse,
aware thafe in the past Germany
has been a considerable producer
of zinc."

Size Counts
Brown or creamy eggs command the higheBt price in gome
cities. In some other cities pure
white eggs are in greatest demand.
Those who prefer eggs with
creamy shells often say such eggs
look richer. Those who prefer the
white say -the whiteness^ indicate
freehnees and purity.
Thafe, of course, is not true.
The flavor of an egg is influenced
by what the hen is fed and, sometimes by fehe breed. Bat fehe
quality of an egg is not reflected in
the hue of the shell...
Grocers tell the story of a canny
housekeeper who bought eg;gs more

picking out her own dozen eggs.

The Business of Farming
The approach of spring, wilh thc
renewal of Nature's activities after thc
long rest of winter, inevitably leads
also to a renewal of man's activities,
especially in the lines of productive
effort. In some countries climatic
conditions permit of year-round agricultural work with a rotation of crops,
and such climates also make possible
the carrying o;i of out-of-door work
Of all kinds. This, however, is not

major activities of both Nature and

A.nd what i.-. true on the farm is
true in the cities and towns of the
West. Iu other provinces and countries industrial activity is maintained
throughout the winter in factories and
shops, but in lhe less industrially organized West hundreds of workmen
who are busily engaged in the summer are largely idle throughout thc
winter. Thc carrying on of building
operations,' road and railway construction, and oui-of-door work of all
kinds is largely at a standstill for five
months  of  the  year.
These arc fixed conditions well
known to everybody, but people arc
frequently inclined lo overlook their
significance in the organization of
thcir business activities, and in dealing with economic-problems confronting them. These conditions havc a
direct bearing on bolh farm and city
labor, ou wage demands by the workers, on ihe purchase and transportation of all kinds of material. If thc
hired farm worker is engaged for only
six or seven months of the year hc:
must, of necessity, earn .'.ufiicicnl to
carry him through his winter months
of idleness, or find other employment
at a time when work is difficult to
secure. The city worker engaged iu
the building trades must earn and lay
,by during the months of building activity-a reserve fund lo support himself and family 'during, th.e- winter

Western Canada Is
Expecting New Settlers
Large Exodus ts Coming From the
Other Side of The
��� An unprecetidented number of farmers from the United States are intending to settle in Western Canada during the present year. One of the
chief factors that is responsible for
the large exodus from the other side'
of thc line is the present exchange
rate. It may not be generally known
that," American farmers, by availing
themselves of the present rate of ex-
change, can save at least the first
twelve months' expenses on their land.
This has been the primary factor in
inducing many of these settlers to
make up their minds right away,
hence thc prospective record business.
One man in Montana a short time
ago,, in order to be sure of reaping
thc benefit of thc exchange rate, forwarded $6,000 to a friend here for investment in Canadian bonds.

Lord   Haig,   presiding   at   a   grand | throughout thecntirc-country
council meeting of  Comrades  of  the  on'v wav
Great War, said, that when men came
home they were divided into various
organizations     because     they     were
bribed away by certain promises from
this  and  that    political  party.      He
therefore said to them to have nothing   to  do   w.ith   any  political   party.

British Columbia's
Talc Deposits
Fairly   Extensive   Deposits   of   Talc
Occur on Vancouver
A number of fairly extensive deposits of talc occur on Vancouver Island,-
and on the British Columbia mainland
along the line of' thc Pacific Great
Eastern Railway. Though so far as
can be judged none of these deposits
contain as fine a variety of talc as is
found in thc French and Italian deposits, most of it will serve for many
of the several purposes for which the
mineral is used. ~
In 1918 Canada produced over 18,-
000 tons of talc, the crude product
selling at $3.50 to $5.00 per ton and
the ground product at an average
price of $14 per ton. The crude talc .
was shipped to the United States,
while the ground product was sold
principally in Canada, a small amount
going to Cuba. Practically the whole
output comc from mines and quarries"
in the. vicinity of Madoc, Hastings
County, Ontario, which is the centre
"of the  Canadian talc industry.
Talc is employed extensively as a
filler in the manufacture of paper, and
with the growing wood-pulp industry
in this province there should bc a
growing demand for talc. A largc
quantity of thc luincral is used in the
rubber industry, and the fine-grained
mineral when absolutely free from .
grit is used for face-powder, cosmetics, -and in the malting of certain
soaps. Talc is employed in dressing
skins and leather, for foundry facings,
for sizing and.bleaching cotton cloth,
in the manufacture of paints and wallpapers, for insulating electric. v;ire^
as a base for-the absorption of nitroglycerine in making dynamite, as a
body for medicines . used in tablet
form, as a preventative against chafing of pneumatic tubes in automobile
tires, and for many other purposes.
In fact, it is doubtful whether any
other mineral finds so many applications in.thc arts and industries.
When occurring in ma'ssivc form, talc
is sawn into slabs and is used for sanitary and electric appliances, and for
sinks ancl for the linings of fireplaces .
ahd stoves. The high-grade foreign -y
varieties are used by tailors foi- marking cloth. : .       .
Thc talc production of the world is
placed at about 300,000".tons, most,of
which is poorgradc. Chlorite, quartz, -
dolomite, pyrite, magetite, and^ such
impurities reduce thc value bf the
mineral, quartz bcing particularly un- -
desirable. Forty-seven tons of high-
grade French talc that was imported
into the United Statcs last - year
brought S86 pcr, ton.

Sunflowers all over Alberta, big
golden sunflowers nodding and swaying in"the summer breezes, acres and
acres of sunflowers dotted over, the
province;^ patches of sunflowers on
every farm from the southern boundary to the north through thc so-called
dry belt, in the irrigated areas, where-
evcr oats and peas do not grow in
great abundance, there will the sunflower flourish. * "'-.'
The mission of the sunflower, will
be to make a dozen dairy cattle grow
where only one was found before;
It will enlarge the dairy herds of Alberta, it will transform its golden
lustre into fragrant butter and rich,
creamy milk.
Such was the message broucht to
the dairymen of Alberta, at Edmon-

Pembroke met him upon his arrival
and took him to his quarters, where
they had a long talk, Ruggles describing how he had established his wards
and thc social attentions that thcy
were already receiving. Hc spoke
"also of the' early suitors and of the
manner in which he had disposed of
thcir demands.
. "I wrote to this Conte del Castel-
franco," he concluded, "and told him
atraight that therc was no use in his
asking for Rosa unless he could furnish proof, that he had a million
francs to his own credit. He hadn't
answered the letter when I left."
Pembroke smiled. "Humberto
hasn't a sou, poor little devil,"' said hc.
"I know them slightly, and I've heard
they live on a small allowance that
the old girl las from bet brother-in-
law, who manufactures Roman silks,
or something of the sort." ;
"Those high-soundin* titles just-
hypnotized Miss Elliot," Rugghs remarked, "and Livingstone got m his
fine work by turning oh the hot air.
Hc sure had plenty of it."
Pembroke frowned. "I'm afraid
thatx Livingstone was'my fault," said
lie. "I'd known him a long time and
always-found him a good enough sort,
so I took him over with me-for tea
one day. Jf I'd ever .thought hc was
going to have a try, I should never
have  done so."
Pembroke sat for a moment puffing
at his pipe, then looked at Ruggles
with a swarthy flush under his fresh
but  wjcathcr-bcalcn  skin.
"I suppose Miss Elliot told you that
I want to marry Rox;ana,'i-he said, a
little  stiffly.
"Yes," Rugglcs' answered, "she told
me about that."
"Hope you've no objections to offer," said Pembroke. "I can manage
the million francs," hc gave 'a short
Rugglcs did not immediately answer. Pembroke glanced at him and
his lids narrowed." The color deepened in his clean-cut face.
""Pon my word you don't look any
too pleased about it,^ old chap, I must
say!" He took his pipe from his
mojith and stared at Ruggles curiously.' Then, noting thc gathering flush
on Rugglcs lean cheeks, his handsome
facc clouded. "Good Lord, you haven't; gone and fallen in love with her
-yourselfr have-you?''��� -
"What, mc? No, of course not. I
ain't in love with her.'
"Then  has  anybody  else?"    Pem-
you think I'm going to sjc you throw
... your lifc away after all that?   Not by
mother, and I know you think a heap  a damned  sight!.     I'd  give you th--
of  her.    How would   you like  it  if "        -    -   --

'See that woman?    Well, her father

[herself, but shc was migntv good-
i looking,  and her folks  though*  thcy

Hc got no further.    Pembroke had
bounded from his chair, his face crimson,  and  his  powerful  gnu     fell  on
Ruggle's     throat.      But even  ns  his
grasp tightened, hc began vaguely to
understand.   The tense fm<jer< relaxed
He thrust Ruggles from him and sank
back into his scat.    The color faded
from his cheeks.
"You damned littic cad!" he growled.    "You-little.shoe-snop    bounder

"That's   right,"   Rugclis   answered
with a littic choke.      "That's what I

China's Campaign
Against Opium
Orders Given by the Civil Governor
To  Stop the Traffic In
This  Drug
The International Anti-Opium Association, Peking, has received a copy
of.a list presented to Mr. Chu, Civil
Governor of Tsinanfu, showing thc
number of dealers in morphia in that
city. The list, which is practically,
seven feet long, contains the names
and addresses of 39 Chinese dealers,
52 Japanese, and five Russians. Orders have been given by the Civil Governor to stop the traffic in this drug,
but, of course, these apply only to
thc Chinese dealers. Many Chinese
shops have been raided and closed,
but no response has yet been received
as to what action will be taken against the Japanese and Russians by
lhcir respective authorities.
The Tsinan branch of the International Anti-Opium Association
made representations to the Japanese
consul, who expressed his appreciation of the work done by thc association and promised his- sympathetic
support, but he remarked that China
was responsible for thc stopping of
the drug. He was of the opinion that
while it was easy to deal with the
common^people, it was not so-easy
to deal with the upper classes and the
officials, who were considerable users.
As long as they were not dealt with
there would be a considerable traffic.

" I suffered from female troubles which caused trferelng pains
like a knife through iny back and side. I finally lost all my
atrengih po I had to go to bed. The doctor advised an operation
but I wonld not listen to it. I thought of what I had read about
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and tried it. The first
bottle brought great relief and six bottles have entirely cured me.
All women who have female trouble of any Mad should try
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound."

Boom Days on the Wane
"Unless all signs fail, the high
cost of living is on the wane, the
seemiDgly impossible being brought
about by the closing of the European markets to Canadian and
American goods. The: exchange
situation is, of course, the prime
factor in these pending readjustments. From all points where
produce and other North American products accumulate for export, come stories of warehouses
being blocked with goods for which
there is no export' demand. It is
well-known that packing houses
are filled from cellar to roof, with
products bought at high prices,
and which cannot be sold in
Earope in the present state of the
money market.
If the foreign situation holds,
and there is no apparent reason to
believe that the finances of the
various European nations are on
the up-grade, or are likely to be
for a long period to come, restricted sales of our products abroad
will continue. " Such being the
case, we will, to all intents and
purposes, be called upon to consume the products of our own industry. In this event, it will not
be long before there is a large surplus, and this situation will, in
the natural course of events, bring
down prices. - v
Once tbe high cost of living,problem is surmounted, other changes
will come in due course. Firsfe of
all, there will not be a legitimate
demand for higher wages. Of
. course, these demands will still be
?.iade, but their legitimacy, once
questioned by the "barometer of
falling prices, such demands must
cease, . ,     -
-   These changes cannot, of course,
come   about    without- a   slowing
down of industry.    When packing
plants cannot no longer ship freely
their, products to Europe as they

Synopsis of
land Act Amendments
"My Darlings Blind
A lady entered a car on the Oak
wood road one day the past week,
leading a little girl perhaps four
years old. The mother sat down
and lifted fche little one to the seat
beside her. The child was nibbling
afc a bit of cake or sugar, now ancl
then turning her face, full of childish love, up to her mother, and
murmuring some almost unintelligible words of affection.
Opposite to mother and child sat
another young lady, who often
smelled a rose which she held. Tbe
innocent little one before her attracted her attention, and the
natural kindliness of the symathetic
woman heart prompted her feo at
once offer the fragrant flower to
the little budding lily opposite. So
she leaned a little bit forward and
spoke: J
"Baby wants the posey?"
But the child seemed not to hear.
Perhaps ife was the noise of the
moving car that prevented. Then
she spoke a little louder, and held
the flower a litfcle nearer temptingly:
"Baby may have the posey."
The mother heard, for she looked
towards the other lady and smiled
���and oh I such a look of heartfelt
gratitude, of motherly love, yet
heavily saddened with such an expressive tinge of sorrow as is
seldom seen, and still the lady of
the rose pressed upon the little one
acceptance of the flower.
"Baby, take the rose,"   holding
it   almost   to   the   child's hands.
A.nd now ib seems  she  was heard,
for her blue eyes turned full   upon
her would-be-patron, and  then, in
a moment she strangely drew back
and  turned  her  eyes  appealingly
towards her mother's   face.    The
lady with the flower showed her
bewilderment in her look,   while a
pained expression flitted across the
face of the mother, who leaned forward and  whispered jusfe a   word:
"My darling is blind!".
Then ' fehe whole  sunless, darkened life of the fair - little  being-
fair as the flower  which  had been
offered to her��� came up before the
mind.    All  beauty  shut -from her
forever!  For her no foliage-strewn,
flower-studded scene to follow the
bleakness of  winter.    No  looking
with    awe   into,   the    mysterious
depths of the night - sky,   sparkling
with  glittering,    twinkling    star-
gems, for over those, blue eyes the
Creator, in the mystery of His designs, had hung the impenetrable
veil.    _No expectant -gaze  toward
the mother's facefor the  gentlest
smile,fehat ever soothes a childish
trouble; only the. blind  passage of
the little hand oyer and .over these,
featares,. for one", moment's fight of
which that little one will often and
often willing, offer .years  of existence, . For her the.bii'ds  will sing,
but; the   loveliness, of   form   and
feather are hofei  ... For her, .while,
the babbling streams may. make
mysterious    music,.-   its   dimpled'
waves, and   witidiug   reaches and
verdant banks do riot exist.
How vividly bitfeerali this as the
lady opered the little band and
shut within it the thordless stem
of the rose, now bearing a tear ori
its petals. And there were other
swimming eyes in the. car.���TJfcica,
