Masonic Ball
The second annual Masonic
Ball was held in the Masonic
H-all on Monday night, Sept. 1st
aud was a great success from
every viewpoint. Those in charge
had left nothing undone arid the
large crowds front all over the
district thoroughly"enjoyed themselves. The evening was bright
and cool, the floor in perfect condition and Bush's four piece
orchestra was never heard to better advantage. They had all the
newest dance pieces, their time
perfect and harmony beautiful.
This popular orchestra seems to
gain in favoritism as time goes
on and are always obliging with
encores, some of the dances being
encored four or five times.   -
The supper at midnight was
greatly relished. The Masons
proved as ever ideal hosts and
deserve the. jhanks'of the public
for g-iving.sudh a good time. . . '

scenic beauty cannot be surpassed.
Last week the Midway Physical
Culture Girls camped for a few
days on Eveleth Isle, a small
island below Midway. These
girls had a lovely and healthy
outing, boating and swimming
taking up the- day while songs
and games around a camp fire at
night passed away the time all
too quickly. The mascot "Sport",
was always on hand for meals
and acted as guard at night.
Those who made the trip were
the Misses May and Joy Sharp,
Winnie and-.7 Alice McMynn,
Kathleen Salmon, Mayneen Bush,
with Lela Stapleton in charge.
So enjoyable was this camp that
the. girls are planning another
outing before the season ends.

Aurora   Still   A   Mystery
Toronto     Professor     Says     Northern
. Lights    Not    Due   to    Frozen
Nitrogen
Thai the characteristics of ihe
Northern Lights are not due io frozen
nitrogen in the upper atmosphere, but
that the auroral spectrum is slill a
mystery to scientists, was the substance of an address in Toronto by
Prof. J. C. MiLennan before tho
mathematics and physics section o_
the Uritish- Association for the Advancement of Science. Prof. McLennan declared thai, the worlc carried on
in ihe local laboratory there, which is
the only one. of its nature other (ban
one in 1 Tolland, run by Vegard. proves
(hat the latter's theories anenl; the
Northern Lights are undeniable.
Vegard's theory was the result of
a study of ihe green line, the most
distinct one of the types of light
which baffled all research until life
Norwegian came out with a finding
that the existence, of frozen niiro-
gen in the air was (he cause.
At the same time the Toronto professor was hold similar experiments,
assisted by G. M. Shrum, a graduate
of Victoria College.
"We followed the same process, but
there ls no proof of solid nitrogen in
the upper air," he. said. "Extremes
of temperature would be necessary to
produce frozen nitrogen, and previous
opinion was that the temperature at
the height, where the aurora gets its
origin is not much cooler ihan this
room."

Saskatchewan
Clay Deposits
Possible to Develop an Important
���   Industry in the West
.Among the visiting scientists from
llie Old Counlry is a world authority
on ceramics. Although guarded in
his references to the clay deposits of
Saskatchewan, what may be inj'erretl
from his published'remarks is lhat it
would be useless to attempt lo export
raw clay from this province to Clreat
Britain or other distant points lo be
manufactured there, as ihe transportation charges on the raw material
would be prohibitive and processes of
inanufaciure already established and
perfected would have to be adapted to
the peculiarities of ihe new clays; but
that iho clay deposits of Saskatchewan
make it possible in ihe pi'o\int:e itself
is admitted by this distinguished authority^
Tho prairie provinces now import
annually from the United States and
distant [joints in Canada, clay - products to the value of many thousands
of dollars. JThcse articles could bc
manufactured in Saskatchewan for a
fifth or u sixth of the price paid for
them laid "down there. Tho difference
between . the cost price at point of
manufacture and the sale price, on the
prairies is accounted for largely by
freight charges, customs "duties and
sales tax. A tremendous saving would
be effected by the establishment of
factories in Saskatchewan, close to
the necessary coal and water facilities,
lit which Saskatchewan clays would be
turned into finished products for domestic use and export to adjacent markets. ,   y  ' 7
This is the theory upon wliich "the
Saskatchewan Bureau of Labor, and Industries has been working in its efforts to interest capital in the clay
deposits of-the province.- The'.'sup--
..port which tin's tfieory has now received from one of the greatest clay experts in the world is pleasing and
should be ot use in pressing the possibilities of Saskatchewan clays upon
Canadian and -other capital.���Regina

Inspector's Idea Worked
Perfumed   Mucilage   Led  to  Arrest  of
"Mail Robber
During the past year a great many
registered letters and packages in the
southwest section of the United States
were opened and the contents were
rmoved. After much difficulty -the
location of the robberies was finally
narrowed down to one of six posjt
ofiices. .���    ' ���
The only clew to the mystery was
that after the packages had been rifled
they were sealed. Upon this frail
clew inspectors worked for several
months.
Finally, one of the inspectors was
struck with an idea, but because it
did not seem very important he decided, to try it out without confiding -In
the other inspectors at work on the
case.
Before long an envelope that had
been robbed of itc contents and then
resealed was given ^to hiin. He
quickly moistened the mucilage on_the
dap and held tlie envelope to his nose.
After taking a good long sniff he stated that he would havc the mystery
solved within a week. ,
>-- .What he- had done was to prepare
six lots of mucilage, each with a different perfume; lilac, lily of the valley, violet, mignonette, rose and heliotrope. ' This mucilage he distributed
among ihe six ofiices under suspicion.
In" resealing. this letter the thief used

Flowers Made From
Butterfly  Wings
Creations   of   Islington   Artist   Worth"
Thousands of Dollars
"Butterily-blooui" pictures of a kind
it would be diillcult to equal in excellence have been produced by an'Islington-watchmaker aged 74.
The artist is F. Moore, known as
"The Butterfly King," and his creations are valued at many thousands of
dollars.
One "picture" represents a bouquet
of .dahlia-shaped flowers, the blooms
of which are composed of minute
petals cut from butterflies' wings.
Every petal, the largest of which
is little more than half an inch in
length, has been cut out by special
stamps ninde by . Mr. Moore lrom
watch springs.
ln order that the various combinations should match or harmonize "Hi"
color, the petals of each bloom have
been cut from identical portions of
the wing of some particular kind of
butterfly. "'
-From the" damask pinions of (he
familiar Peacock butterfly, for instance; butterfly-blooms of Indian-
red, varying shades of .purple, and
even black and yellow have been
fashioned.     %
Others of'terra co.tta, blotched with"
black and white, have been made from
the upper wings of Tortoise.-shells.
Beautiful variegated "flowers" have
been formed from the black-dotted
scarlet borders of the underwings of
Red Admirals, the wings of male Brimstones supplying the materialfor pure
yellow, blooms..
"The spotted tips ofthe wings of
"Cabbage Whites" go to form some-
of the blossoms, whilst many wonderful patterns have, been produced by
mixing, wing-petals : from various
species of butterflies.
In the centre of each is the protruding head of a butterfly.with antennae
intact.   W
It took Mr. Moore six years to com-"
plcte.this particular picture.
Mr. Moorp has been butterfly collecting for over 60 years, and is still
actively pursuing thc hobby.

Wheat Pool Selling Agency estimates
tho total wheat crop of tho three [
prairie provinces at 265,000,000
bushels.
This is approximately one hundred
million bushels less than the estimate recently published by"a Winnipeg newspaper, according to A. J.
McPhail, President, of (he Selling
Agency aud of the Saskatchewan

Condemning exaggerated crop estimates as "misleading and detrimental
to the farmers," Mr. McPhail said
that the Winnipeg newspaper report
in question resulted in a drop of '6%
cents in the price of wheat on the-
market'immediately after it had ap>
pearcd. W
"The report Js misleading," said Mr.
McPhail, "because it is based on the
supposed acreage sown to wheat and
takes no account of the fact that hundreds of thousands ' of acres have
"since been .plowed under. .    ;     ���   ."���
"The - inter-provincial wheat pool

SAYSJINISTER
The Pas, Man.���"The Hudson's Bay
Railway is not a political football. It
has been the policy of the Liberal
Government ever since the time" of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier that this route should
be developed primarily for the benefit
of-all Canada, neither for the east nor
the west, and Canada has been committed to build the road by both Liberals .and Conservatives," declared
Hon. W. R. Motherwell, Federal.Minister of Agriculture, speaking at a
luncheon tendered by The Pas Board
of Trade.
"Now, the war has been over five
year"., and 1 believe Canada is^now
capable, financially, of going ahead
and completing the Hudson's Bay l&iil-
-way. The Panama Canal route has
always been.known to be a 'hot route*
for wheat and cattle,~but it has been
made a success. There -appears to
be no- reason why the so-called 'cold
route' through Hudson's Bay should
not become a similar success. Any
national enterprise is more or less a
gamble, and the Hudson's Bay Railway should present no-more elements
of doubt to our minds than was the
building of the C.P.R. I am going
over the road with an open ,mind.
Tributary industry along the -route
would, I believe, be sufficient lo warrant the completion of the road as a
paying branch of the C.N.R.
"There-are two kinds of opposition
to the road. First, those opposed to
the expenditure ' of vast" sums _o_t_
moneyfhopelessly;"second, the fear of
great financial, .loss 7to- established
eastern industry, "~7i'he road must be

MEN WHO GUIDE
DESTINY OF THE
BRITISH EMPIRE
Forres, Scotland.���-Ramsay MacDonald, the British Prime Minister, in a
speech here alluded (o the heavy responsibilities of the people governing
the extraordinary federation of self-
governing nations comprising ihe
British Empire. Mr. MacDonald said
they sometimes had the leeling that
human wisdom and strength were unequal to the task of enduring ihcm.
"And yet," Mr. MacDonald added,
"there is something so', fine and
strengthening in if all that the work
can be done. The work itself makes
its success almost inevitable."
The Premier referred to the recent
review of the. British fleet off Spit-
head. He remarked- that many who
viewed it thought the line of ihe
bains fleet a.yery short one:
shortening    was    a-  great

President of- Manufacturers'  Association    Makes    Plea    for    Harmony
Between All Classes
Toronto.���Greater co-operaiion between farmer, lumberman and industrial Canada was advocated by Col. A.
F." Hatch, President of the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association^ speaking
at- the exhibition luncheo'n here.
"Why cannot the problem of building up Canada be solved by co-operation and compromise?" Colonel Hatch
asked. "Our chief national problem
is to utilize the raw materials from
our great resources, in such a way as
to give the greatest possible amount
of employment to Canadians, and this
can be done by sn.anufacturing to the
limit of our ability all tiiese raw materials that we now export. We must
get to the policy of co-operation
among all classes for the constructive
development of this country."

Tokio.���Several of the most eminent
physicians have left-hurriedly for the
western provinces, where a new epidemic, resembling spinal meningitis,
is reported to be raginfe, causing nearly 900 deaths in recent weeks.
The local physicians call it narcoleptic meningitis. The victims undergo the usual symptoms of spinal
meningitis, and then fall into "a comatose state, remaining so until death.
The mortality is at the rale of C5 per

Thetje are men who have
absolute control of temper, but
these. are very . exceptional men.
There is a verse in Proverbs which
reads "He that is slow of anger ie
better than the mighty; and he
that ruleth his spirit than he that
feaketh a city." Yet people seem
to be taught from childhood that
there is a virtue in getting "mad"
as they commonly express it.
"When powder explodes it ia apt
to blow up itB container and temper
is apt to do most damage to the
man who lets it go off. In a letter

To Complete  Highway
Victoria, Sept. 2rd.���One of the
most important government projects ever undertaken by the Oliver
administration is the completing
of the Transprovincial Highway between Hope and the Interior.
Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister
of Public works, announces that
tenders will be called for this work
within four weeks, while the bidders will have October to look over
the plans and prepare their estimates. When the Legislature meets
late in October the lenders will
have beeu decided upon and the
House will be asked to vote the
necessary money. The link will
cost about 81,000,000, with an
additional 8250,000 required for
the big Bteel bridge across the
Fraser river at Spuzzum. The
government plans to carry on some
of tbe work this winter, If unemployment conditions can be -relieved in that manner.
Every section of British Columbia will profit through the corr.ple-
tion of the Traupprovincial Highway. The road will provide a
main artery across the province,
linking up practically all districts
with the main Trans-Canada Highway. The returns through increased tourist ��� travel should pay
for the work many times over
within ten years.

Mounted Mountaineers Pow-Wow at Yoho
Premier Oliver's return to''the
Legislature, through his success at
Nelson, and the reconstruction of
his cabinet, have brought the beginning of an era of better times in
British Columbia. Elections are,
fortunately or unfortnuately, necessary, but the depression resulting
from upset conditions in this province has passed and with the
Oliver administration firmly entrenched for another four or five
years, there appears no reason why
the industrial and commercial life
of the province should not be
stimulated materially.
Despite the'fact that the inherited
P. Gk E. Railway has caused the
Oliver government- untold grief,
there at .last appears a ray of sunlight upon the horizon and the satisfactory solution of the problem
may be found in the near future,
Hon. Dr. MacLean, who, has just
given up the portfolio of railways,
to become the new minister of
finance, has planned carefully dur-
ing the past two years and administered the affairs of the government line economically. Now the
Canadian National Railway sees in
the P. G. E., Railway a means by
which the great Peace ' River
country may be entered. The province cannot hope to get entirely
clear of the burden of tho past expenditures, largely incurred by the
former Conservative government,
but it is expected that a working
arrangement ' will be completed
whereby the province will dispose
of most of the railway and witness
the development of that portion of
the country which it serves.     ~ -

Above, Starting on the first Annual Ride.,   Below, Chief Wnlklng-
ln-the-road picks out a few odd peaks for a fair Trait Rider.
Early last July a small party of riders was encamped
on the plateau which lies between Tunblmg Creek
Glacier and the gap in the Vermilion Range of the Canadian Rockies known as the Wolverine Pass. The day
was warm and conducive to sleep, and, because on this
account one of the party dozed and dreamed and later
caused the other members of the party to enthuse over
his dream, there gathered in the Yoho Valley of British
Columbia a week since, two hundred and six prominent
Canadians, Americans and Europeans, calling themselves
Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies. Each had
qualified for membership in the Order by riding at one
time or another not less than fifty miles through the
Rockies on horseback.
This unique "gathering, recording as it did the first
attempt to form ah association of mounted mountain
climbers was characterized by. Dr. Charles W. Walcott,
head of the Smithsonian Institute of Washington and
honorary president of the Trail Riders, as a step which
will prove one.of the greatest international attractions.
Tne attendance at the First Annual Ride of the Trail
Riders exceeded by far the most sanguine hopes ofthe
organisers, -but fortunately, Yoho Camp, that beautiful
village of chalets a mile above the sea, had been roinf ovced
with twenty Indian teepees and a huge Sun Dance Lodge
which had been erected as camp headquarters by Stony
Indians under the supervision of Chief "Walking-in-the-
road. - V
Only one trail rider, left this camp with what could be
termed a legitimate grouch. This was Dr. Walcott who
believes that bears stole the side of mutton which was
hanging at the back of his chalet when he last saw it.

Riding was, of course, the order of the day, and manv
of the riders, enchanted by the scenery, fall far behind tho
main group and lingered on the heights till night fal'i.
In the evenings the mountain enthusiasts fathered in
the Sun Dance Lodge to talk over the day or to sing pnd
dance and otherwise amuse themselves. Aijto'r.the white-'
mans pow-wow on the second night a real Indian powwow was danced by Chief Walking in-the-road and
Chief Buffalo-child Long Lance, to the aceompani.r.t-'nt
of Indian sin'ging and the beating of tom-toms by a group
of Stony braves. ,      \ - 3
Altogether the first  annual  pow-wow -of*, the  Trail
