Follow Safety First Idea and Keep
Away From Uncertain Investments
You have heard-of sections of.the
country where money is made in gas,
"oil or real estate almost overnight.
You eompar-3 your slow process of getting the "where-with-all" and you become dissatisfied with your job, your
boss ancl your whoe environment.
You may have a liOrqe and a couplo
of thousand dollars and while you
have a stepdy position you are tempted to sell every tiling and try out the
Investment-game where money is reported so r-nsily made. Tiie pictures
drawn for you by interested salesmen
have fired your imagination and upset
your mental balance.
Look hero, old man, take sensible
advice and do not risk the littlo you
have on such uncertainties. Investment and securities are out of your
line and' the small sum you'can turn
into cash^ should be safeguarded, not
risked. So hang on t.o what you have..

Propioter Tells of Big Power Project
On Bay of Fundy
The future of the entire North
Atlantic coast will be affected by Dexter P. Cooper's Passamaquoddy Bay
tidal power project, its originator said
at the dinner of the Maine. Society,
when ho disclosed new details of his
plans for developing'between 500,000
and 700,000 horsepower by means of a
modern, low-head hydro-electric station on an arm of the Bay of Funday.   -
Tho amount of power whicli cau be
developed will depend largely upon
market conditions," Cooper said. "The
annuai production of tlie plant will .be
'approximately 3,000,000,000 kilowatt
hours, which is, according to the geographical survey statistics for 1922,
Tf> per cent, of the output of the public
utility plants in New England ln that
year. /   ����.
"The cost of this power will be well
within the, range of the cheapest hydroelectric station in this country, with
Trade Prospects Reviewed At

the President covered^ a wide field of
finance and trade, a survey ln a largo
way of existing domestic conditions in
whicli encounigement was found, and
a review of affairs lu other countries
with which Canada carries on commerce and whose financial Condition
the extent of 66 per cent. Deposits
have grown particularly savings deposits, and circulation of notes is larger. An important point was brought
out by Sir Frederick when he said that
"Canada now has one branch bank for
every 2,200 people, as compared with
one bank for every ,3,700 persons in
the United State's arid for every 3,000
persons  in  Australia."      The  notion
reflects ln some degree upon ourselves, j that recent amalgamations of banks In
The balance sheet of the "banks is tho  CHnada have reduced banking facilities

Ireland Would
Welcome Prince
British Royally .Has Always Been

British papers haye heen bidding the
rrlnce of Wales visit Ii eland. Such a
visit might well' place the copestone
on the temple of frlsli" peace to whicli
Irish and British-statesmen have recently contributed their efforts. The
fuiggosllon is taking form ip connection with laying the foundation stone
of the Ulster Parliament Building in
Belfast. " He cannot well go to Belfast without going to Dublin. The
Prince, as ambassador at large, has
���visited every continent andN every
other ihember of the British commonwealth. Evorywherojie has captured the hearts of statesmen and people

which was'the heritage of the Stuarts,
grafted upon and refining the sturdy
Brunswick "stock. Those qualities
are calculated to giro him tt peculiar
'��� place in'the affection of the Irish poo-
' pie. And is he not' also named Patrick, and is he uot a lover of horses
and it reckless rider���and if he is
thrown now and then does he hot pick
himself up'and try'again with-unabated courage? The Prince would willingly have gone to Ireland,had he been
allowed,'at the^height of the*Sinn .Rein
trouble, and done his part toward allaying the passions then'raging. But the
iifo of the Prince ��� was counted too
valuable to risk sacrifice, by bomb or
bullet. Grave .statesmen held that
the Irish (rouble was constitutional
ancl onlyH constitutional change could
remove it. They did not know the
Irish people.
. Strange- as II may appear, in Ireland's eight hundred years of tragic
association with Lhigland,'. English
kings and princes have often been popular with the Irish peo^l-p With-the
Celt there is still a divinity that doth
hedge a* King, and it would not'be unnatural if th*> Prince should win the
loyalty of the Irish as Bonnie Prince

ago that Thomas C. Wales,'a Yankee
boot and shoe merchant of Boston,
hpuglit from a wandering sailor a number X>t crudeiy made shoes fashioned

them up in Para, Brazil, as curiosities/

wrong to remove your hat when on-      Mr. Wales,  however,  saw  in  them
tering a Chinaman's honn>.     It is an (what Dr. Samuel Johnson once called
insult, aud equally as bad if we were
to sit at a host's table lor lea with
our hat on.
Again you should never offer a
Chinaman your hand lo shako. This
would cause your host great displeasure. You must 'shake hands with
yourself, both on arrival and departure
from iiis home. If you1 are offered
anything to drink it is a breach of etiquette to, touch it before the moment
you are about lo leave. Again, x'ou
will notice your host will pick a cake

For these /little mannerly consiu-
erations'the Chinaman will makefile's

treasures, give you stories of his. home
and business and many introductions
lo" his friends.
Your visit to Mr. Chinaman's homo
ends with a , good handshake witn
yourself "as yyou* s'tand on the step.
But as you turn to. walk away, you
find lie is handing you-a sniall present in memory of .your visit, for the
Chinese are splendid hosts and love to
make your visit to their home a

Hidden Wealth In North
Forecasts Great Mineral Production in
Northern Manitoba
That Northern Manitoba is destined
shortly to produce, in mineral production alone, actual wealth equal, If not
greater, in-revenue than all other
combined productivity in the province,
waa the-opinion expressed by It. II.
MacNeill, for many years secretary of
the Hudson Bay Railway, and e^coun-

pointed to the recent commencement'
of activities of consolidated smelting
interests of the U.S.A. now arranging
for extensive preparations to develop
the Flin Flon copper-zinc, gold mine.
"None of ihe oldtlmers of new Manitoba have ever vvavered^in their, fealty
to the future prosperity of the district,

success may now dawn upon the north
country, it will only be, received as an
expected reward to northerners for
their- indomitable pioneering spirit ln
making such "achievement possible."

Prince of Wales Thoughtful
Chauffeur Tells Another Story_Of Hi,s
Re4dy Sympathy-
Mr. F. J. Small, chauffeur yio the
Prince "of Wales on his recent tour,
tells a story of the Prince's
thoughtfulness and sympathy. One
night a car which was taking mem-"
hers of tlie- Prince'.-? party to a dsince
overturned and the driver, a 'i'oung
Dutchman, was killed. When the-news
was received the dance was, stopped,
and the Prince drove to the scene tif
the accident. lie learned that the
driver was to have been married soon,
and iiM'ow days later, when passing
through the village where th��> man's
fiancee lived, lie sought her out and
gavr- hPV the silver watch bearing his
"the potentiality of wealth beyond the
dreams of avarice." He conceived
the idea of shaping rubber shoes over
the standard lasts __o that they might
be worn over shoes to protect them
from tho weather. Iiis plan was so
successful and the rubber shoes had
such a ready sale that n-country-wide
market, wliich shortly became worldwide, was developed.
It was not until 1S58 that Mr. Wales
patented the-waterproof and cold-proor
overshoe made of cloth' and rubber together. He called that invention
"Wales' Patent Arctic Gaiter," and
from this name arose the familiar appellation of "ttrtics" - for overshoes
that is heard even to.this day from the
lips of the elder generation.
We Utile appreciated liow modern
many of the comfortable things of life
are. For example, the lathers of men
now Jiving knew nothing of window
screening, and the plague of flies In
tlie,house was.jjpnuHliing of which we
today have,,, little conception. About
the same time the new invention df
"rubber shoes" appeared, and for the
first time in the history' of tlie race it
was possible to walk the streets and
fields dry shod and to return io the
hoiise in whicli the age-long battle
with hottse flies had al last been won.
A new era of comfort ancl health had

Added Malay State
To British Empire
Work   of   Young    Englishman    Gave
Britain  Valuable  Territory
How It. W. Duff added Kalantan In
the Malay Peninsula to the British empire is revealed in'a suit just concluded alter lasting a decade, by which he
wins damages of ��37S,000 and costs
from the Kalantan Government.
Thirty years ago the young Englishman just from college, went, to Paining to command the military police,

with Hugh Clifford, now governor of
Ceylon, to quell ifr When tlio insurgents fled auross ilie border inlo Uie
neighbor state of Kalantan he followed, being with Clifford, the first white
man to enter It.
For four years the little command
endured every kind or hardship. During this period Duff saw the possibilities of the country and when iii'1900
he was invalided out of service ho
returned to London lo interest capital
in obtaining concession. He thought
if, successful the British Government
rtC-ould back him.
, Returning to Kalatan he outwitted
tho Siamese and secured from ' the
Rajah extraordinary powers riot only
over the resources but over the natives. He made laws, drew up policies and among other things inoculated -300,000 natives against cholera and
smallpox. Ho opened up gold and
silver mines and by 1906 had several
thousand acres of rubber under cultivation.-

Edison  Changes His Habits
Eats   Less   and   Sleeps   Five   or   Six
Hours  Instead of Four
Thomas A. Edison, in his seventy-
ninth year, has taken to sleeping more
and eating less. He sleeps as much
'.as five to six hours a day. although for
a period lie cut .'this 'down to four
hours. He therefore has only about
eighteen hours a day for work. His
diet, according lo an interview published in Popular Scierfce Monthly,
brings the cost of living down very low.
-.Although his weight is 186 pounds
without variation, the Inventor eats
at all meals the following combination. A piece or toast, one and one-
half glasses of milk, a tablespoon or
cooked, oats and a sardine. Ho observes this menu for weeks at a
time, and then will change it slightly, though he never eats anything
more hearty.
In his laboratory he is engaged
on many new lines of research and is
busy also with perfecting tlie phonograph and the storage battery". ��� He
refused to -ell abput the new Inventions on which he is working.
Now Known That This Trouble
Must Be Treated Through    <4
the Blood
The most a rheumatic sufferer can
hope for in rubbing something on the
tender, aching joint is a little relief.
No lotion or liniment ever did or ever
can do more than this. The rheumatic poison is rooted in tho blood. To
get rid of It you must treat it through
the blood. Any "doctor will tell you
that this is true. If you want something that will go right to the root of
the trouble in the blond, take Dr. Williams'.Pink Pills. "The whole mission
or this"medicine is to purify and enrich tlie blood and when they do this
all blood troubles, including rheumatism, disappear. Among those who
have proved the value of Dr. Williams-
Pink Pills is Mrs. Annie Wright, Woot-
Chester, Alta. who says: "I was a sufferer from rheumatism for six years,
and during most of tliat time my life
was one of misery. I tried several
doctors, and many remedies recommended, hut never got more than temporary relleL The trouble seemed
lo affect my whole system and I was
badly run-down and suffered from
headaches as well. Finally I was advised lo try Dr. Williams' Pink TiUs,
and through these I found complete
relief and to-day I feel like- it new
person. 1 can therefore strongly
recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to
i anyone buffering as I   did   from   thta
I trouble."
I i'ou can. get these pills from any
medicine dealer, or by mail at 50 cents
a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine

Reflection Was Too Real
Bird Killed Flying Against Window In
Which Tree Was Reflected
A curious sight was witnessed at
Dumbarton ltoad,t Glasgow. The
bright morning" sunshine was reflecting a nearby tree in the drawn blind
to the window of a butcher's shop.
While admiring the perfect silhouette,
a young man was startled by the whirr
of a large bird which passed him flying straight for the shop window under the impression lhat the reflection
was a tree. The bird shattered the
window, and was picked up on the floor
of the shop dying. It proved to be a
magnificent female specimen of the
capercailzie, the largest of lhe gallinaceous birds of Europe, and a native
of the Highland wilds. ft is a mystery how yhe bird found" its way so
far from its habitat. The capercailzie, or cock of llie woods, i.s a big
shy bird and is seldom seen except on
the moors. The dead bird weighed
over ten pounds, and in striking the

about 12ft. by S,'it bent its henrk"rlght

"Your committee had the opportunity of hearing the promoter of the bill and has given

it isrhrjTiu the public interest for

in the above-mentioned bill.

nothing was stolen, a lot of

Jrb. World and Back" will be run for the first time in the
history of dog-mushing at the Banff Winter^Camival this
yeait according to plans now being made by the Carnival
committee under President Standish. The course from
Calgary to the Great Divide and back to BanfE will be the
longest dog race in the world and. will exceed the famous
Pas Derby by 23 miles.; The Strongheart Trophy and one
thousand dollars vrtll go to the winner.
Fram Calgary, the starting point, the dog teams wiU.
travel to a height of 5.3C0 feet over a distance of 133
iniles.   This point is the Great Divide, the backbone of
the North American continent, which in the Canadian
'Rockies separates'Alberta from Brithih Columbia.   The
contestants will then return to Banff via Lake Louise,
completing the distance.of 173 miles.    The course lies
ever the most rugged scenery, in America and will be the
most" unique run ever made by dog and sled.
-!   This world-championship dog derby will be made .ari
annual event at the Banff'Winter-Carnival from now on.
Among the famous mushels who have already signed up
for the -race are Ike Mills with his team of famous ���all-
. blacks;  Harry Knight, \\<y 19-year-old  boy who has
-. tvrice already won the Strongheart Trophy and will have
��� to win it only this year to��� come into possession of it; Jim
Boyce,'Fred Pepper, George Child and other^f less note.
:' The end of the race will be celebrated by a big buffalo
.-.barbecue at Lake. Minnewanka. seven miles from Banff.
A special.tram will run from Cnlgaiy/to Banff,to allow
those who saw the teams start to view the finish.'*;/;   '���     '
""" The Banff Winter-: Carnivalj. which has now become
one of the big Canadian v/inter classics, will extend over :
two weeks this year, from February 3 to.the 17th". yy- ���'*
D Another feature1 of .this -year's events will be the ski-
jumping contests over the new, enlarged hill; which will
be participated in by Nels Nelson, the Canadian Pacific .
Railway brakeman who holds the world's championship '
in. both the amateur and professional classes.      ....
To enable the winter'visitors to Banff to see something
of-the scenery, Bill Potts, famous Rocky Mountain guide,
will bring in twenty horses-to be used to pull ski-jorers and
.tobogganers.to "scenic points in the.surrounding moun-
tains. -v      -, Ov '   ' '-'..���;'������      .���.', .' .
Other features of the ice carnival will.be the ladies^,
hockey  championships  and  skating   contests  for..all.,
classes; swimming contests in.the famous'hot sulphur-
pools; ski and ski-joring races and th#-packing and saddle .
contests by the famous Rocky Mountain guides of We3t
Canada.    Dog teams will be/used to. taxi the: visitors'
instead of.the fatniliar Banff summer automobile. These
teams will be provided by the Brewster/Transport Company. The city of Calgary having this year discontinued;
their own carnival to join forces with-the Banff classic..It.is expected that the coming Banff "CarAival will be the *
biggestjn the history "of the Rockies..
