Victoria,''Dec. 22.���The second
session of the Sixteenth Legis-
laturchas passed into history and
once again Premier Oliver has
led his forces to victory over a
strong opposition and-despite unceasing efforts to unseat him and
his government. At no.time was
the administration -in. danger,
although the session is admitted
to have been the-most strenuous
experienced in a. great many
years', A. government working
from day to day without a party
majority so convinced the Inder
pendents-in the Rouse of,- its
superiority over anything that
the Opposition had to offer that
the issue never was ia doubt.'
Th'e outstanding event of the
Session was' unquestionably the
government's PaciSa Great E^st
ern Railway Bill, which promises
at last a solution of the biggest
problem in British -Columbia.
A land grant of. 16,000.000 acres
of land along the provincial Hoe
and in the Peace River country
will enable the government either
to carry out a colonization programme which will settle the
country and wipe off the P.G E.
debt, or else pave the way for 'a
sale after another Session which
would have the same result:

France Imports a Large Quantity For

over half a million dollars' worth,
passed through Montreal recently.
Many of tho animals wero consigned
to France "where they are expected to
be used for breeding purposes.
To handle this huge amount of animals, over 560 crates were necessary

Xlie Ola Year and tne New
Canadians can look back over 1925 with a considerable degree of satisfaction, and forward to Uie new year with hope and confidence.
Tlio "old ..year witnessed a gradual but steady improvement Jn conditions
t Itroughoul .'lho Dominion, an improvement which became more pronounced
following the ..yrestern harvest. There has been an all-round betterment in
biiuiness, wiih a marked lessening in unemployment, while prices for the
primary prodtictsof the country have remained firm, thus assuring a fair re-
inrr. to the producers for their labor.
The ox part trade of the Dominion has' mounted higher ancl higher, bringing money into I.he country and sending the Canadian dollar to a premium
in the world's money markets. The increased buying power of the people has
been reflected in a speeding up of industry at home and in increased purchases from abroad;
Our great railway systems, which faced a serious drop in business in the
earlier months of (.he year as a result o.f the smaller crop of 1924, more than
made up their losses in the latter half of the year and at tho close of 1925
are able to'present better balance sheets than a year ago.
Th need .for economy stressed during the diflicult period through which
Canada iu common with most countries has been passing, resulted in greater,
care in administration by municipal bodies, as well as 'by all large commercial
concerns, and today the whole financial fabric is healthier and stronger than
for some yc.irs. The feeling is now, that, although there must bo no orgy
of spending'and no extravagances, the way is open to important, developments
which were unite inadvisable during the years which have elapsed since tho
close of the ..war. .-.'������.
o Canada-was' fortunate, too, that throughout 1925 thc country was free from
any great calamities or epidemics. Industrial peace prevailed except in tho
coal mining districts, and before the year drew to a close tho trouble in the
Nova SeoUa area was ended, and it ls confidently expected that a permanent
aud satisfactory settlement of long standing disputes there will be reached.
Canada's prosperity depends not only on the energy and progressiveness
of its own people, but, iis a great exporting country, upon the peace, progress
and prosperity of' the whole world. The old year witnessed substantial progress made in the direction of removing old feelings of bitterness and suspicion in Kurope, and the reaching ol guarantees among iho Great Powers calculated to maintain peace in the future.      "
As the year was closing :i note of optimism was sounded at the annual
meetings of the JSanks, by the heads of our groat transportation systems, .And
by the mtimiraclui hif; and wholesale and .retail world. All aro agreed that
.th'*; peak of thes era ol depression has boon passed, and that the outlook fo.. tho
new year is bright with promise.
With the outbreak of the Great War in 1911 immigration' to Canada came
iibiuptly'tn a stop. ' While tho war raged the movemenC-was toward Europe,
and with the ending of the grim stniggle canto a period of readjustment when
Canada's,bigg-fat Isis-k Was to rr-_.bs.orr_ jrs hundreds of thousands of soldier.,
back into civilian Mo and ffnu'.^uitabki and rnmuaerativo employment for
them���ti gigantic task in_ view of tho Industrial T-haos and unrest existing
Throughout tho world, and the loss of buying power ou the part of all nations.
Has Won His Promotion
Services   of   Vice-Admiral   Sir   Lionel
Halsey  Have  Been   Recognized
Vice-Admiral Sir Lionel Halsey,
who has had conferred on him a
Grand Cross of thoy Order of St.
Michael and St. George, has well won
promotion in an order which specially
recognizes services rendered overseas.
As comptroller and treasurer to the
Prince of Wales for the last five years,
Sir Lionel has accompanied the heir-
apparent many thousands of miles,
over both sea and land. He cannot
be considered to havo ended those
travels yet, for there are other p'arts
of the vast continent of Soutli America thau Argentina and Chile of very
great importance to British trade, and
especially Brazil, still to bo visited.
The time fo.- another long tour by the
Prince is not Just yet, but if can "be
taken as certain that, if all goes well,
it will come, and within the next IS
months -or two years.

A WOMAN'S WORK W
IS NEVER DONE
No Wonder Health Gives Out and
She Becomes Weak and
Despondent .
It Is literally true concerning woman In the home that her work is
never done. She starts with housework when she rises, in the'morning
and Is kept busy up to the time she
retires at night. The work must bo
done whether .she is feeling well or
not. Ir ig no wonder lhat she often
breaks down undei: (the strain. She
becomes breathless at. slight exertion,
feels exhausted if she walks up stairs.
Headaches and dizzy spells become
frequent, and life seems a burden.
Mrwh of this trouble is due to the fact
that her blood has betonv thin nnd
watery, and to regain herrgood health
she must take a reliable blood-enrlch-
iug tonic such as Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. The ijrmt value of tlils tonic
medicine is shown by thc statement of
Mrs. Mary Nolan, Lintlaw, Sask., who

Getting Under the  Thames
Huge" Tunnel   Is  Being   Bored   Under
Bed of River
Unknown to many Londoners wlio
pass over tho bridges of tho Thames
on their way to work each morning,
a huge tunnel is being bored under tho
bed of the river. In a few w.eeks tho
final drilling will haye been done, and
a clear way from south to north established. After that, the tunnel will
have to be lined, however, and this will
not be finished until next year. No
fewer than 27.000 tons of cast iron will
be used in the^lining process.' ^Boring operations have been carried on
from both sides of.the river, and the
greatest care and accuracy is required to "link up" properly. The object
of tho excavation is to link the Ken-
nington underground railway to that
at Charing Cross.

WiU Help "Fight Tuberculosis
Canadian Red Cross Donates $5,0U0 to
Carry on Work
The central council of the Canadian
Red Cross Society at Toronto voted
$5,000. to the Canadian Tuberculosis
Association to continue the demons tra;
tions being carried on. to determine the
best means of eradicating tuberculosis.
Following a discussion on the .finances' of the society, it. was.decided
that in view of the 'heavy demand on..
resources of tho organization, owing
to expansions. of activities .for promoting national welfare, a natinal
appeal should be made .for funds.
In connection witli the report of
the Junior Red Cross, it was agreed
this branch of tho organization's
activity had .brought a new influence
into tho schoolroom.
The report showed a total of 3,906
branches witli 102,242 members.

Another Famous Painting Found
To Change Name
Citizens of North Battleford By Vote
Decide to Change Name of City ���'
At the municipal elections, citizens
of North Battleford endorsed the bylaw providingTor a change in the namo
of tho city by: a majority of 300. Eight
^hundred and 20 ratepayers voted on
the matter and of these 560 were in
favor of the ehange.
Some timo ago a movement was set
afoot here to have the namo changed
as it "appeared to be too closely allied
to Battleford.     The fiialn reason atl-
jvanced was that   a    great   deal    of
j trouble rose over mall being directed
j to North Battleford and should havo
gone to Old Battleford and vice versa.
A committee set to work to find tho
feelings of '.he citizens on the matter
and the result was the request for tho
submission of a bylaw.
. No plans have as yet been put forward for the choosing of a iiame.

Canada'n great national need Is more peopli1. A large population is an
fsiseutia! requirement to tiie development "of our national resources, tho settlement of our vat-ant lauds, ilw provision of adequate trallic foi' our railways,
$uid lho paying off of our national debt. Thf probabilities are that 1926 will
���wilne-is.tSie beginning of'ihn fulfilment of our'national desire for years past,'
nnd large julvince continuants of incoming new and permanent s>eltlers. Th��y
will come to voile and establish homes for themselves and their children,'and
���their coining will mean work'and prosperity for those who are already here.
Canadians can bid the old year la rowell .knowing it served lliem well, but
thcy can look forward wllli even greater f-atisfaction to 192G as holding promise of .ttill fit-eater achievement and better things.- - ** "         -   -

Ruben's "St Theresa" Has' Been
covered After 200 Years
A painting of St. Theresa, said to
be a genuine Rubens,,, has baen dls--
covered by Pr. Ludwig Burchard, art
critic and an expert on the paintings
of Rubens. The work was executed

Tanks Were.
__Too Slow
Likad By Infantrymen Because They
Could Traverse Barbed "Wire
The attempt of an Englishman to
collect a large sum from his government for Uie basic Idea of the tank,
or landship as It was originally called,
may revive discussions as to the military value of these engines of warfare.
Lord Kitchener, who was enough of
a genius lo be tolerated as an auto-
ciat, appears always to have been
lukewarrn^and skeptical with regard
to tanks, and it remained for Winston
Churchill, who'll try anything once, to
authorize thcir construction.'   ���
At tlie close, of the war the British,
''aiid some of tho other allies, had
developed.a tank which would travel
'al Irom fifteen to twenty miles an hour
over rough ground and there was some
talk of equipping the machines with
heavier armament and larger-weapons
than ,the sa\yed-off naval six-pounder
quick-firing guns that did effective
work whenever thc enemy could be
spotted. >
The principal defects of the tanks
were their deadly slowness. They
attracted the enemy's fire'-and, one
shot frohi^a. light field gun, especially
in ihe older models when the gasoline
tanks were high-in the bow, was usually, enough to start a fire which burned
the crew to cinde?s, Infantrymen
who were always expected to work
with tho tauks,-disliked them-for this
reason,., ail hough they were glad to
.see." something lhat could traverse
barbed wire. Tanks could also demolish pillboxes if they could get near
enough. In some regions, particularly, in Flanders, they were frequently
mired, and their success at Cambral
was modified' by the fact that several
of them were blow.up by nrints.pkuu;
ed for .he-German ofthe species." '���' ���
Tanks probably, never justified .tlie'
enormous. expenditure of men and^
money- which their development re-'
quired In tlie hurry of -war. But ah
improvement in speed," arpnanient
and "visibility for the crew ln the" in-"
tervening years may" have made this
branch of the army more useful than
the ��� ordinary 'armored car ever could
be.-'-Buffalo Express.
Dirigibles Only Means
For Exploring Arctic
But Dog Tteams NeededJ='or Scientific j
_ Study Says McMillan    '���"������'-'
One person, at least, is convinced���
and yery glad���that, the impracticability of-aeroplanes for far north exploration was pretty well demonslrat-
ecLb'y. the recent MacMiilan expedition
to the Arctic. ,
That person ls Donald 13. MacMiilan himself, commander of the expedition.
"All the romance and adventure of
exploration will go with the dog
teams," he said. "Riding around in
aeroplanes isn't very exciting. The
dog was king ln the north, and I am
glad lie will remain king, as we have
proved conclusively by this last expedition."
Perhaps -..Commander MacMillan's
last expedition did seem tame beside
his first, if years ' ago with Peary,
when lie slept out In the snow in 70
degrees below-weather, when he didn't
change his clothes for SO days.
, Dirigibles built of mefal will be
used in exploration of the northern
seas iu the, future. Commander MacMiilan believes.
"The dlglbles will riot need to come
to laud," he said. "Of course, they
must be, perfected before they can' be
used for exploration and for mapping,
but not for scientific study of the land,
because the men cannot be landed. In
scientific study dog teams will always
be used, he is convinced.
"We are sure that there is a vast
body of land In the unexplored pola��
seas," he said, "not a land covered
with Ice probably, because there isn't
as much ice and snow at the pole aa
there is 800 miles from the pole. I
doubt that it. will ever be colonized,
but it would be suitable for air .stations when tlje aeroplanes start routes
over the far north to. Europe.

Find Spectacle Case In Arctic
Believed  It  Belonged To   Member Of
Nares 1875 Expedition
Considerable interest and much his-
toricarspeculation in Canada, in Great
Britain, Is centring around a leathei
spectacle case found .in the Arctic by
the Canadian expedition of 1924.
Dr. D.-. L. Levingston, who was s'hip
doctor, on ihe Canadian steamship
Arctic, found the case on the beach
on Pirn Island.""' It is of heavy leather,
bound in the shape of a small pouch,
with a heavy gold monogram of the
letters V.R.I, suromunted by a crown.
It is assumed the case was lost by a
member of the Nares naval expedition of 1875. ��� The Nares expedition
was sent by the Royal navy in an
attempt to reach tlie North Pole., The
parly wintered on Pirn Island.
The point whicli has raised the controversy is the fact that, in 1875, Queen
Victoiia had not been created Empress
India, yet the monogram boars the letters V.R.I, standing for Victoria tte-
giua Imporatrix. The North-West
Territories branch has becn prosecuting an Inquiry into the .possible origin
of the spectacle case for more than a
year and considerable correspondence
has passed between the ollicials of the
department and surviving members of
tlie expedition. ��� '
~ Nothing has yet been' established,
however, but it appears that the title
Imperatrlx might have been used before officially conferred and that the
spectacle case was a gift of the
Queen to Nares himself or to some
senior officer of the expedition.
Chinese Use Roses In Food
Greatest Consumers in Nanking Are
Bakers and-Tea Dealers
Roses are used in Nanking not only
to scent tea leaves or drinks, as people
in other parts of China do, but also iu
tho preparation of various kinds of
food, especially candy and light refreshments. Nanking bakers' use
roses very liberally iri scenting cakes
and other kind of pastry."" During the
flowering season tlie bakers collect
large quantities of these flowers and
keep them in a preserved state to be
used in the next twelve months. Rose
petals are preserved for food scenting,
in two ways; they are either dried in
lhe sun and kept, ln a covered jar, gen-
eially of glass, or preserved iu sugar
sirup. Nanking brewers use rose
petals in preparing a kind ��� of rose
scented liquor." Even ppdlorts". and
food vendors boast "that their wares
are rose scented. The greatest consumers of roses in Nanking are th.e
bakers and tea dealers' the latter
using them to scent tea leaves.

Discover. Ancient
Temple In Palestine
Magnificent Building Contained Golden
Image of Goddess
Further discoveries within the temple of Ashtaroth at Beisan, the Beth-
shan of the Bible, were reported in a
cable dispatch leccived by the university museum, Philadelphia, from
Alan Rowe, field director of the-museum's Palestine expedition... A statement Issued by the museum says that
according to Rowe's dispatch the' expedition has; discovered beneath the
foundations of the lately found temple
of Ashtaroth the ruins of au older
temple of ttte same divinity.
"Within this older'temple Rowe reports the finding of a golden image of
tho goddess," the announcement says,
"The brief cable dispatch gives no
further details, but it is evident that
this discovery of an earlior temple of
Ashtaroth"underneath the later one is
of great historic importance.
"The new discoveries -which reveal
.the, existence of an old temple underneath are conclusive proof of two
thingsr-
"First, that Beihshan must have
been, destroyed at some date' prior to
1,000 B.C. wITen this older temple waa
laid in ruinp.-and lhat it was later rebuilt.' ,
"Second, that this older tempi* was.
more magnificent than the later one,
indicating a more powerful civilization.
The fact that the image of the goddess
was made of gold is it\" itself a significant fact."        / ' .'

Will Publish Old Novel
Written By Victor Hugo 75 Years Ago
and Just  Discovered
The manuscript of a novel written
by Vicfor Hugo ten years before "Les
Mlserables" appeared, has been discovered, and soon -will be given to the
public.
The project .is tlie idea of Gustavo
Simon, the venerable literary" executor
of Victor Hugo, who for forty years
has been active in promoting interest
in the groat novelist.
Doth thb tact that the did manuscript is in existence and the plan to
publish it, have been kept secret
hitherto, as far as the public is concerned.
Announcement of the- dlseovery
and proposed publication of the manuscript was made here by the American Braille Press for AVar and Civilian Blind,"which lias been making inquiries regarding the matter, in a desire to promote interest on the part
of French blind readers in the works
of Victor Hugo.
The following statement was mado
by a representative of the Press:
"It should be - interesting to know-
that Victor Hugo's literary executor,
Gustav Simon, the scholar and bibliophile, is still busy and that after years
of research he has discovered the
manuscript of 'Les Mlseres/'-a novel
written by Victor Hugo more than ten*
years before the appearance of 'Les-
Miserables,' or more than three-quarters of_a century ago."

Bees' Set out to Make a Recbra
x
llfho ever heard ui a hive oi bees that in one day
4 V gathered no less than 25 pounds of honey? If anyone
doubt.; that the busy bee can be as busy as all that, refer
him to Mr. W. D. Wright who has p. laige and prosperous
apiary near Souris, which is in southern Manitoba on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and if anybody doubts the
fertility oi* the Province of Manitoba or wonders if the
summer suns there shine down on wide fields of glorious
bloom, let him read the following which is gathered frqm
the columns of the "Souris Plaindealer."
It was on July 31st last that the hive' of bees beside
which Mr. Wright stands in the above picture gathered
and stored the twenty-five pounds and established a
record for this continent and perhaps for the whole
world. There was no doubt about its being true, because
tho Provincial Department of Agriculture made the test.
Fiom July 13 lto August 3,'the hive.stoodon a scale and
every evening when the bees' work was done and they ha'd
gathered around their fireside to talk it over, the weight
of the hive was taken. The first gain was on July 14
when 1Yi pounds was brought in and from that quantity
thg daily "take varied up to 14 and "16 pounds. But-on
July 31 the bees got together and made a Special effort
ji'st to show what they could do in the way of establishing
' records.-   : .....
Perhaps.they had just discovered that their efforts
were'being" recorded. Anyway we can imagine that the
nij;ht before, the queen called the crowd together, or
perhaps only the captains of teams, and said something
like this:���   - t j
"Now, boy?, the world's got its eye on you and tomorrow's the day we go over the top. Any lad that comes
-in litre with less than his full load gets into trouble and
the chap or team bringing in the biggest bag gets a wax ���
medal with my picture on one side and his own name on
the other." \ _ ' '   -   ���..
And how they worked that day! They worked all the
other days of the season too, because the total honey
produced for the season was 496 H pounds. Of course
there were two or three rainy days when they stayed
at home and did chores around the hive, and two or three
other days when it'didn't rain, but they r.tayed home
anyway to look after the local'elections or something like
that. And when it was all over no doubt the queen said
"Well, it's been a pretty good working season, I'll tell the
world," and as always is the case the Queen was right. *
-"Having proved her superiority as an organizer etc.,
it was natural that wider spheres_jof endeavour should
call to this queen, so Mr. Wright-shipped her to a big
Bee firm in Alabama who are sending him another queen
now, ten of her daughters next spring and three two-
pound packages of bees with three more of her daughters
in command. The trade was worth $35 to the Floradale
Apiaries. The locating, capturing and.caging ready for'
exportation of the Wright queen was ritnessedby J. W.
Brcakey, M.L.A., and a representative of the Plain-
dealer. She was indeed a very fine lady and was head of
an enormous population that objected pretty strenuously
to her removal, and you cannot really blame them for
that.
Mr. Wright's Floradale Apiaries'this year produced
almost four tons of honey\and he hopes that next year
.Southern. Manitoba ancl the neighborhood of Souris
in particular wiUagain show the world something startling in the way "of honey production. In the meantime
our .friend the queen will continue her campaign for a
bigger and better honey crop.
