There is nothing surprising in tho

tyrants at Moscow except the political
folly of it. The Vicar-General was a
Pole; the majority of the Poles are
Catholics, and Poland is Russia's most

makes a peaceful understanding between the two nations impossible. It
has so outraged public sentiment in

Lord Robert Cecil has drawn thc
attention 0/ the people of the United
States (0 the fact that soon their
country may be the only one not in
the League of Nations.
England, lie said, will support Germany's application for membership,
and Turkey already lias made advances to join, and this would leave
the United States alone on the outside.
This situation, if it conies about,
would be all the more extraordinary
when the fact is recalled that it was
the United States which originated
the proposal that there should be such
a league ln the interests of peace and
for the benefit of humanity. " "

Scientists'  New  Theory
Land Submersion Takes Place  Every
25,000,000 Years
Oceans will rise up, continents will
drown, and England will become a
seapool. This is the latest accepted
theory of the scientists of the end of
all things���25,000,000 years hence.
The scientific prophecy of a new
earth to be���based on carefully calculated data���was made by Sir Edward John Russell, the eminent scientist, who is director of the Rotham-
sted Experimental Station I7or Agricultural Research, at Harpenden, The
theory of the land submersion- was
first mentioned by Sir Edward Russell in a public lecture at Shrewsbury.
"The speculations of what will.occur are not mine," said Sir Echvard.
"They are those of Professor John
Joly,- the geologist of Trinity College, Dublin. .-���+'[

Trees7a  Thousand  Years  Old"
A Woman Pirate
Giant Yew Trees of England Survive
From  Remote Ages
How many people realize the great
age of the sombre yew trees scattered
Up and down the land in the British
Isles? asks Bassett Digbjv F.R.G.S.
���' Many a shady British' yew now
standing gave shelter from sun or rain
to Anglo-Saxon wayfarers before the
Norman Conquest, he continues. There
is ample reason for its having been
planted so extensively in churchyards.|
as symbols of immortality.
The, giant yew at Aldsworth, in
Berkshire, is over 1,000 years old, and
still flourishing. No cne knows how
many centuries have elapsed since it
considered that it had grown enough.
Twenty-seven feet round today, it
measured just the same in 1760, when
a, note of its girth was made in Move's^
"Berkshire Queries." The Btickel-
btu'y yew, also in Berkshire, by 'an
odd coincidence, is ot just the same
size. ���
The leaning yew at Iflley, near Oxford���unless it has been cut down
since'l saw it last���-is accounted to be
the oldest tree in England.
.^ It is interesting to realize, when you
look at an old yew,- that your forefathers must haye cut brandies from
it with which lo make their bows.
There is a gap of centuries between
the birth of Britain's oldest yews and
the birth of Britain's oldest oaks and
elms. Not an oak in Great Britain
has been found, when cut down and
the annual growth rings counted, to
be 500 years old; and elms live a century less. . "   ���
Commands Score of Chinese Brigands
Who Obey Her Implicity
There recently appeared on the.river at Hong Kong, much to the alarm
of shipowners' and their crews, a woman pirate, who has already taken a
heavy'toll bf loot from vessels. Nothing is known of her, except the fact
that she speaks English, wears a
serge costume and Wellington boots,
and carries a wicked-looking revolver,
with which she compels her victims j
to surrender. Under her are a score
or more Chinese brigands, who, although they are cut-throats and robbers, obey her implicity.

New   Microscope   Perfected
Will   Dissect  Matter that  is  Invisible
to the Naked Eye
A micro-vivisection apparatus, governed by finely adjusted screws, whose
work is so delicate" and minutely exact
as to enable it to dissect living human
cells which are actually invisible to
lhe naked eye,,has been perfected by
Prof. C. E.Tharaldsen, of the Department of Zoology, of Northwest University, according v to an announcement made at the university.     ^
"For j years 'scientists have been
making repeated attempts ��� to break
through the barriers surrounding the
invisible protoplasms wliich make up
the human -body, on.the theory that
once-the'complete basis cell is perfectly understood, the control of the
greater machine will be vastly expedited," says the announcement, which
adds: "The- hew. invention accomplishes thisW X
The little device can be held in the
palm of one hand. It is of brass,
with various' screws manipulating the '
arms, which in. turn govern glass
needles and pipettes tliat literally cut
the.living' cells which arc suspended
in a hanging drop- of nutrient fluid
under the le'nse of. a microscope.
A year ago Professor Tharaldsen
invented a'paraffin oven whicli greatly simplified,the worlVof research in
laboratories. None of his inventions,
he says, will be sold for his personal
profit.'but will-be turned over to hu-
ood, use they
will serve.

and still true, Europe is the
world's metal market, to which
practically all metals find their
way. As Europe is the consumer,
the industrial conditions of Europe
regulate the consumption of, and
demand for, the metals."
That Europe is still in a decidedly unsettled condition cannot be
questioned, but despite this, the
consumption of the metals seems
to have increased aud the greatly
overstocked metal market on this
continent, which accounted for the
tremendous drop in prices in 1921,
has been somewhat relieved, with
the result that metal prices in 1922
have been materially higher than
in 1921.	
Talk of an impending general
election in British Columbia is
characterised as "poppycock" by
Hon, J. D. MacLean, provincial
secretary and minister of education,
as well as other ministers of the
cabinet. Enemies of the government are the only persons demanding an election, and their predictions are based upon false hopes, is
the minister's statement.

Editor The Ledge:���
Dear Sir,���
I was much interested
in a letter which appeared in The
Ledge about 2 weeks ago from
"Sportsman." It may interest the
writer and others of your readers
to know what the Provincial Party
intends to do with regards Game
Conservation when they aro ter
turned to power, as enunciated by
General McRae in a speech at
Victoria some time ago. The- proposals are too long to go into detail,
in this letter, but the/principle is
that Game Conservation should be
put in the bands of the sportsmen
'A Game Conservation Board
could be formed, comprising a representative selected by the, active
game association in each game
district. The appointment of a
Chief- Game Warden and assistants
would be under the direct control
of this Board. The revenue from
the gun licenses would be expended
as required under the guidance of
the Conservation Board in the
development of our game an fieh.
Should "Sportsman" wish to see
the proposal scheme in. detail, 1
should be glad to furnish him with
a copy; .-7.-   /  .7 .,';���   - -.
