A. Shortsighted Policy
Defence of Empire
Closer Relations.With Dominions Upon
Naval  Policies Are Favored
During a debate in the British
House of Commons on the naval estimates, Major L. llore Belisha, Liberal,
suggested, that there should be a more
intimate relationship between the
Mother Couutry and the Dominions
when the nayal problems were settled.
The Dominions aro not bearing
their full share of responsibility in
naval matters, Major Belisha said, not
because they are unwilling to do so,
because the problem probably has never been approached by them I'rom a
truly imperial point of view.
Major Bilisha's remarks subsequently were endorsed by other speakers, including Mr. Lloyd Georgo. Tho
latter declared that if it.were, a question ot the defence of the empire, the
whole empire might share the burdens (hereof.

Lesson: The Book of James.
Devotiona. Reading: James 1.12-1S.
The shortsightedness of some- people is proverbial, but it i.i truly amazing
to find a whole organization of men numbering tens, if not hundreds, of thousands so afflicted. Yet tho coal miners of the United States, Canada and
Great Britain seem to be not merely temporarily but permanently incapable
of seeing that they aro surely destroying their own means of livelihood.
,_, Thou.Haruls of miner* are on strike in Nova Scotia, and now there i.s talk
of another great slrike on tlte part ol" the anthracite miners in tho United
Stalea and rumbles of another strike in the British mines. In no other 'industry has there been such continuous unrest and repeated strikes as among
the coal miners. With what result? The miners themselves would bo the
last to say that their condition has been improved, while the concensus of
opinion ls that they are worse off than ever and their future prospects far
from bright.
The fact, is, aud other people realize it if the miners themselves do not,
that a very great change is taking place in the world of manufacturing and in-
transportatioi. to the detriment of. the coal mining industry, and the uncertainty, dlflleulfies aud losses created by these frequent and prolonged miners'
strikes are ouly serving to accentuate the problem confronting tho coal mining Industry and hastening the day when the miners will find themselves in a
much more serious predicament Ihan now against which they are making
such bitter complaint.
The cost ot mining and transporting coal, due largely lo the high rates of
wages paid the miners and increased freight charges resulting from the Increase in wages paid railway operatives during the war, and whicli have not
been much reduced, together with the rapid improvements effected in oit-
buriiiiig niachiiiry and the development, of hydro-electric power plants, has
resulted In a "verilablo industrial revolution.
Ono of the greatest developments taking place in. the three English-speaking countries, and one calling for the investment of hundreds of millions of
new capital annually, is in connection with water powers and the erection of
huge hydro- elect rie stations generating hundreds of thousands of horse power.
Manufacturing plants, Uncling the cost of coal mounting and their supplies
periodically threatened through miners' strikes,-are,".in ever increasing numbers, changing over from steam-.to hydro-electric power. ������-:'���,""

The   Text   Explained   and   Illumined
Put-away anger, verses 19, 20.���The
author of this Epistle believes that
members of the Christian Church
should be "living epistles," exemplars
of the Christian virtues. "Let every
man be swift to hear, slow to speak,
slow to wrath," ho counsels.
"Three things are hero required;
keenness in listening, deliberation in
speaking, control of feeling. We are
to be very alert In tho first, but the
second and third are to be - held
firmly in lo.ish. It is the way of tho
Master, and it will be found the way
of life. O Lord my God, give me t'he
listening ear. Let me misa nothing
of all thy counsels. Give me a wise
control of speech; let not my words
be tlie ser/ant of mischief" (Dr. J.
II. Towett). '
For humai anger does not promote
righteousness, continues James. James
is said to have been known as James
the Righteous, an appropriate "designation; for his whole Epistle is a
treatise upon righteousness.
"Man's -wrath is rarely, if ever,
justifiable; even 'just indignation' is
too often intermixed with other elements; and frequently the premises
ou which It is founded are at fault.
Man, unlike God, never knows all the
circumstances of the case" (W. E.
Oesterly). ���
"The worst thingowe can bring to a
religious controversy is anger. This,
however it may pretend to be raised
by a concern for what ls just and
right, is not to be trusted. Wrath is
a liuman thing, and the wrath of man
stands opposed to the righteousness
of God. Those who pretend to serve
the cause of God hereby���show that
they are acquainted,neither with God
nor his cause.' (Matthew Henry).

A Huge Undertaking
Great Underground Rail System
Planned For London
The Daily Graphic says United
Stales capitalists haye just completed
preliminary plans for giving London
the biggest underground railway system in the history of transportation,
involving an outlay of $25,000,000.
; A network of freight railways below the level of the present passenger subway system, is planned, tlie
idea being to speed up surface traffic by transferring- freight haulage
from the ..streets to: the new railway
system. '-'The. scheme has been designed by an English' engineer.

His Chance in China
Other Junjor Officers
Those who have been expecting the
recall of Prince George froni China
must be sadly ignorant of the tradition^ of our royal house. If the British' naval forces are employed, the
Prince will be with them, and will
take the rough and tumble of it like
any other junior ollicer. The King is
quite alive to the dangers of the'situation, but I should imagine that the
recall of his son would be his last
thought, as it would be the very last
wish of the Prince himself. In our
royal family, at all events, things like
that are just "not done."���Glasgow

Germany  Buys -Canadian  Wheat
German    Consumption    of    Canadian
Grains is Heay Says Report
. The value of the German and continental markets with regard to.tho
exportation of Canadian foodstuffs is
being more than ever exemplified thxa
season in the huge imports of grain
and flour from" the Dominion by tha'
free port of Hamburg. In addition '
to more than 12,000,000 bushels ol
grain shipped from Montreal sine*
the opening of navigation, Hamburg
has received 6,014,411 sacks of Canadian flour in the period between Sep-*
tember and June, and ls 1,000,000 sacka
in excess of thel922-23 season.7
Figures show that Montreal not
only led, all world porta ia grain
shipments, but also in flour exports.
Although the threatened import tax
on incoming flour by Germany undoubtedly hastened shipments.io that
country, the fact is nevertheless apparent that German consumption of
Canadian grains Is very heavy. The
aforementioned tax is to go into effect

Truth Stranger
Than Fiction
Party In British Honduras Uncover
City Buried in Jungle
Not ln books alone are romance and
adventure to be found. The most
vivid stories of Rider Haggard, H. G.
Wells, or Conan Doyle,'evolved from
their fertile imaginations, contain
nothing more wonderful than-the experiences of a party ln British Honduras, headed by Mr. Mitchell Hedges
and operating on behalf of the British Museum. Of the wonderful flsh,
animals and plant life discovered in
regions hitherto untrodden by moderns, their ponding book must tell,
but they hate lined the veil upon
their greatest exploit���the uncovering
nf a city burled iu the jungle for many
hundreds of years.     It w.as not buried
_ as Pompeii was, nor covered with sand
as are ancient Egyptian tombs, but
merely obliterated with tho jungle
growth* of centuries. *No digging was
pecessary 'to restore it to view. The
explorers sot fire to the jungle shortly before a terrific rainstorm was expected, and, standing on a hill-top,
they watched the bla^c devour trees,
' bush and moss. As the flames did
their work, structure after structure,
built by primitive men who lived ages
and ages ajo, was unveiled; then torrential rain fell, completing the disclosure and quenching tho fire.        r
The feelings of those men, and ol
the one Englishwoman irilho party,
as they stood there and saw this lost
city re-eppear before thcir eyes can
be betler imagined than described.
Conan   Doyle's   "Tho    Lost    World,"
- weird as it is, seems' quite possible after this. Truth is again stranger
than fiction.���SU Thomas Timos-
Monopolizing "America"
Name Not Exclusive to United States
Says Argentine Man
Two men���a New Yorker and an Argentine���sat over their after-dinner
coffee on the Avenida de Mayo, oue oi
the leading thoroughfares of Bueno3
Aires. The street was alive with motor traflic. Tall buildings loomed in
every direction. Electric signs blazed familiar names from the portals of
adjacent movie theatres. Color, and
chatter animated the throng that passed back and torth.
After watching the varied sidewalk
panorama, :1m New Yorker remarked,
"This place is more like America than
any other I ha. e soon down here, and
I have already done the AVest Const."
"If you will permit me to say so,"
replied his companion, "I object to the
uso of tho word 'America' in connection with your country. Argentine
is as much a part of the American
continent as is the United States. Wc
have the same claim to the word
'America' as you." ���
The traveller i'rom the north looked a little dazen for a* moment. Then
he retorted, "I guess you are right; but
it had never occurred to me before."

Mineral Wealth of Dead Sea
Government to Grant Rights to Undertake Development Work
Efforts soon will be made to exploit
the vast miueral wealth of the Dead
Sea, and Palestine, tho richest country in the world for potash resources,
may begin lo yield up some of Its
A government announcement says
that in view of the existence" in the
water of the Dead __ Sea of certain
minerals, the winning and marketing of which tor commercial purposes
is believed to be practicable, the
crown agents for the colonies, acting
on behalf of-the government of Palestine, are prepared to receive applications for tho grant or rights to undertake operations.
The volume of the Dead Sea' is
somewhere in the neighborhood of
120,000,000,000 cubic metres. Hence
thc area contains roughly yo,000,000,-
000 tons of mixed salts, of which possibly 1,500,000,000 tons are potassium
chloride. The salts occur as a strong
brine, immediately ready tor evaporation and crystallization for the production of pure salts by the natural
heat of the sun. The average percentage of salts in the brine is at least
25 per cent-, of which 3-1 per cent, is
sodium chloride, four lo seven per
cent, potassium chloride, and up to
one per cent, or more of magnesium
The surface oi the Dead Sea lies
1,292 feet below llie sea level. It is
48 miles long and IS miles wide. < It
is estimated that 6,500,000 tons of
water fall into it daily. Because of
the extraordinary evaporation caused
by the infeuse heat, the water is
impregnated with mineral substances,
of wliich common salt constitutes seven per cent. Fish,cannot live in tho
Dead Sea, which destroys nearly all
organic life.

The experience of Miss .Eva IT.
Longbottoni, a young woman of Bristol, England, who has been blindfrom
birth, suggests' that' the brain may,
have other methods of perceiving color than by the ordinary means through
tho optic nerve, for she "sees" voices
and other sounds.
Miss Longbottoni provides an extra-,
ordinary example, of the great accomplishments that can be acquired even
by the blind.
She is the British Helen'Keller. She
is an L.R.A.M. and A.R.C.M., is not
only a ballad siuger but has appeared
in oratorio���a great feat for a totally

that it was as a child that she first
became aware, that soudd was producing vision. 7 .":'.'.,���
She had a'tended a-concert at which
Mr. Ben Davies sang. ��
"As he proceeded with his song,"
she said, "I became aware of a strange
and mystic light shining near me, and
felt an impulse to stretch out .iny fingers aud catch*it. Never having I'rom
my earliest days beheld a ray of light.,
I marvelled much at what I now saw-
so clearly, and thought it must be
some creation of my own brain."   7 y
Miss Longbottoni mado up her mind
to encourage:' this scjisation' of light,
for, 'though she 'had'iifo 'idea of light
as such, yet she believed,'by'"'.cbntpar.

reception for relatives and friends.
Many pretty and useful presents

Lake Louise. 'On their return
they will reside a short distance
east of Grand Forks.
The contracting parties are
well-known in Greenwood, the

"The animals went into the Ark In case It should rain."   ��� "Lonft John Silver was also there.'
*'|  know wliat we'll do," said Alice, "let's go to 'Wemti-
1 ley."   "What do you want to go to Wembley for?"
asked tlie Walrus, wlio was always asking foolish questions anyway,
"I 'want to see the sailing sliips and sealing-wax and
cabbages and kings," replied Alice.
"Ha, ha," lau'ghed the Walrus, ''you won't see any
sealing-wax there, it's all at Madame Tussauds and I
have my doubts about the cabbages, too." G
"Well, I shall see lots of sailing ships- and kings,"
said Alice starting to cry, for- she was very fond of
cabbages, "and, anyway, if you go to the Exhibition
alone you won't be able to get in to Treasure Island as
they don't admit adults unless they are escorted by
? "Oh, all right," said the Walrus, who, being 182
years old, no longer regarded himself as a. childand
had secretly wanted to go to Treasure Island all the
time. .    ' * . ' -
-    So away they'wont.
When they arrived at Treasure Island they found a
real train���not a.very big one, it is true, but. neverthe-
. less,, the. realest  train in the  world���puffing   like a
grampus, .at a little station labelled Banff, as If anxious
' to-get. on "its "way around Wonderland. . ���. ���.
���    "Look,", said Alice, "there's Peter Pan."      / ���
''That ain't Peter. Pan," said the -Walrus, whose" edu-
.. cation- had .been.- sadly, neglected, "that's a Canadian
Pacific engine."-  W
'-'"'������ "I don'Vcare,".answered Alice, starting to cry again,
.-.-'for.vlike. all .modern children, she hated to.be contra-
.-;" dieted-, by; her. "elders, "it's -calied'.Peter. Pan because "it
-goes everywhere aiul-nevcr- gets"old "or tiresome.".   This
.'.sly.reference'to Mange effectively-subdued the Walrus,
.'_ who-.hoy -relapsed .into'-silonco," and didn't say. another
-word until tliey-: were" seated in. the ".little train and s-low-
v ly .pulling out 'of ���Banff.' y. ..--"----   WW.'""   -,--'-
-X It-would."take too-long to'describe all the'things they
saw or all" the wonderful .people. they met,. but they
had such an interesting time that-Alice scion, forgot'-all
about-her cabbages, and sealing-wax.     ���'.       ....     ;
There was Long John Silver, with his one eye and
wooden leg and piratical disposition; and there were
Mother Goose, Sir Francis Drake, Robinson Crusoe and
Man Friday, Humpty Dumpty, Little Bo Peep, Jack and
Gill and all the other fairyland people Alice had read
about but never met before. And they saw the animals going into the Ark which Noah, had* provided for
them in case a rainy day should come along and wash
off all their paint. :- -���
Of course, they saV lots of other things, too ��� the
Rocky Mountains, for Instance, and the Golden Hind.
"While we're about It," said Alice, when they had
seen all there was to see at Treasure Island, "we
might as well go In and see the "Canadian Pacific
Pavilion. Everybody goes there, you know.'' So in*
they went, and saw all the &ood things to eat and wear
and work with that they have in Canada. They were
Bhown around the building by a big man in blue who
had "C.P.R.'' on his epaulettes, and explained to them
th'at'tho Initials meant Canadian Pacific Railway, and
that they had put up this building and made Treasure
Island in order to let the boys and girls in- England
know what a fine country Canada is. But it presently
began to get dark and Alice had to take the Walrus
home and give him a bath before he went to bed.
. "Well, that's that," remarked the Walrus, when they
got outside. - 7
"Of course, it is,' 'replied Alice' '.what else would-it
be ?" "I mean it's all over now,'.' grumbled the Walrus who had been annoyed because Alice had refused
to allow him to go into the Ark with the other animals,
"and you didn't see any sealing-wax or cabbages, and
not many.kings either."    ������-  '���   >���   '
"That's quite true," replied Alice-patiently, "but I've
found out a lot about Canada and I've.had a jolly
good time, so you may grouse .as much as you like���
I'm quite satisfied." -  .- .-".-������*      '- =
And so they went home, and the funny part of it ia,
Alice did not wake up���for she had not been dreaming
