Prosperity Around
The Corner
Sir    George     Paish     Predicts
Revival in Trade
Sir George Paish, leading Brili.sh
financial authority, interviewed in
Toronto, expressed tho. oniuiou that
iho greatest trade expansion in history was about to coniraencc.
Asked for tho evidence upon which
he-predicted a great trade revival and
iho coming of unparalleled times of
prosperity, Sir George said: "The
evidence is the more reasonable mentality of the governments and peoples of all the countries. Kvery gov-
<Tinii''ul touay is approaching tho
problems which havc to be faced, with
a desire to .��olve iheni, instead or,
heretofore, refusing to look at the
problems, and endeavoring to carry
out policies which were utterly impracticable.
"Times aie improving,'' lie said. "I
ihink we are ou the up grade. Only,
again, tlie question of the maintenance
of the improvement depends on the
adoption of a series of measures. The
(Hiestion is, will those measures he
adopted. Already the world has begun to adoi't this. This is shown by
(lie adoption, in the first place, of a
more reasonable attitude on the Gorman reparations, as shown by the introduction of the Dawes plan." One ib
hopeful tliat other measures will be
taken in due time."
The gold standard is coming back
to England and all the dominions of
the British Kmpire, Sir George ..lated
"The time is not far off,"' he said,
"unless some events arise which
would prevent it."
Inspiration  From  Lincoln
When Greed a"d Jealousy Dominates
the Lives of Men
The world needs the spiritual leadership such as Lincoln's was and is.
It needs it now perhaps more than
ever before,- when the exaltation of
soul so marked during the great war
has given place to a sordid state of
society wherein greed and jealousy
and selfish ambition dominate the
lives of m?n. Tlie change that has
been wrought in the few brief years
since the war ended is impressively
told in the case 'of the man recently
sentenced to a federal prison for having tried to* cheat tlie soldiers with
whom he served on the battlefields of
Franco. This man was ready to give
his life to his country and ho took
the chance lhat other soldiers, tookr
But once the peril of war had passed,
he was as reatl.v to cheat as the commonest crook ihat ever wore prison
clothes. His case may be an exaggerated eximple of the difference between the war aud the after-war
spirit, but essentially it has been tho
same with millions of others as with
him. The world cannot be saved if
such a spirii is to prevail. Governments will not endure and permanent
peace will never come. Our hopes
are in the example of such men as
Lincoln. '1 he fact thai the memory
of men like him continues to be revered is proof that there is hope.���Portland Express.
Fasting Makes People Healthy
Can    Be    Fed    I'Ho
, Declares Expert
People throughout the world would
- be able to keep their tempei.s and be
endowed, with better dispositions
ironerally if they did not oat so much,
in the opinion of ])V. Leonard Hill, an
expert   ,on    dietetics , wlio advocated
* fasting as an aid to health.'
The great virtue for most persons
was in abstinence and even in fasting.
Dr. Hill told members'of the People's
League ol Health nt the Medical Society  recently.-    It was  fallacy, said
- the doctor, to believe that it was possible to feed people   into   strength;
what was more apt to happen was derangement of the digestive organs.
Opposed To Many Things
From "A Year of Prophesying-' By
H. G. Wells
I am against the clothes wo wear
and the food we eat, the houses we
live in, the schools we have, our
amusements, our money, our ways of
trading, our ways of making, our "om-
proinises^and agreements and laws,
our articles of political association,
the British Kmpire, the American constitution. I think most of tho clothes
ugly and dirty, mo'st of tho food bad,
thc houses wretched, the schools
starved and feeble,, tho amusements
dull, the monetary methods silly, our
ways of trading base and, wasteful, our
methods of production piecemeal and
"wasteful, our political arrangements
solemnly idiotic. . . . Jjy insisting
that I can be a creative revolutionary,
I escape front acquiescence in what I
am and whai things are. To live under the rule of King-George er President Coolidge and under me sway 'of
current customs, habits and usages
can be made tolerable by the recognition of their essential- tronsitoriness
fin.!- their ultimate insignificance. And
in no other way can it be nitric tolerable to anyone with a sense of beauty
and a passion i'or real living.    -

Talking Lizard! Of Luzon ,
Says "What You" As Clearly As Any
The talking lizard of Luzon, in the
Phillipine Jungle, which is a couple of
feet long, has a skin pouch on.its under side, like that of a pelican. When
disturbed, or peevish, it in dates this
pouch untii he stands almost upright;
then he expels the air in shortgusts,
forming perfectly the* words, "What,
You!" It always says it five times
in succession.
~~ They call him a bird, but he iias no
wings, and he crawls on the ground,
and he looks like a dry-land alligator.
He says those two words, "^Vhat
you," with an explosive force and
clearness that sounds entirely human, sometimes with emphasis on
"What" and other limes on "Vou,1'
sometimes like a ���question, "What!
You? and other times like a challenge,
"What you!"
The words are spoken as clearly as
any human could speak them. It is
a strange experience, in the gloaming,
to hear big oues and little ones all
saying, "What you," some.in basso,
some in soprano, others iu alto, and
tenor, some loud, some low, sometimes
like an imprecation, other times like
the lullaby croon of Old Mammy.
School of the Future
Buildings Will Be "Open_Air" All the
Year Round
The lime is not far distant, says an
Knglish writer, when tlio schools of
today will be things of (ho past, and
instead of childien being forced to sit
in stuffy, unhealthy classrooms they
will learn their lessons in buildings
which will be "open air" all the year
round. And tho scholars will never
feel cold!
This seems like a flight of fancy, but
already such schools have been erected in Derbyshire, and, curiously
enough, the proved success of these
most modern of buildings is due in
large measure to methods employed
by the Romons-
The first school of this tjpe was
built some jears ago at North Wing-
field, a village iu Derbyshire, and since
(hen its fame has spread���because of
(he building���to all parts of the globe,
and education authorities havc come
from many countries on missions of
inspection. Other schools of this type
have since been built throughout

Fruits Are Good Medicine
Pays  Tribute  To Newspapers
New   York   School   Principal   Proves
Attention Paid to Accuracy
Accuracy is regarded by newspapers
as. their first essential, and for very
obvious reasons; one is that "if tho
news could not bo depended upon to
bo as accurate as can humanly be possible they- would soon have to close
down; the public would not stand for
themr- .We need norrefer-to "other
causes; but we should like to mention
a tribute which has been paid to their
accuracy by the principal of a school
in New York. He said that'he clipped 3,061 stories on biological subjects" "from -192 newspapers in seventeen months; out of that number only
1-1 articles contained an inaccuracy.
This, he declared, was a bettor record than most, books *can show. The
press will thank him for taking this
trouble and thus giving proof of iho
aticutionwhich it pays to accuracy.���

Lemons Would Lessen Doctor Bills
.Says Noted Specialist
Oranges are an excellent aperient
and sour oranges are"" highly recommended for rheumatism. Lemons are
.specifics in biliousness���if"- eaten at
first symptoms they will often avert
the attack. They are recommended
for rheumatism, colds and low fevers.
They are excellent for liver complaints
and nothing wiH. so satisfy the 1 hirst
in illness as lemons. A noted specialist made the statement: "If more lemons were eaten there would be less
work for the doctors." Figs are said
to bo valuable as a food for those suffering from cancer. They are univei'-

Japan is making hotter use of the

This scheme will enable the members

that "Canada should consider the

Mr. Neill introduced lhe subject by
suggesting that the question be taken
up in a non-partisan spirit. He suggested that a small committee of the
house might be formed to consider the
matter, with the aid of technical exports. A policy might be evolved or
defence under the name'of the "Canadian policy."
Mr. Neill urged the necessity for
defence of coast lines and shipping.
The dry dock" at Esquimalt, which was
to be 'finished shortly, would be of
vital importance to-any British naval
operations in the Pacific. Today, it
waa particularly open~ to tho world,
with only a few obsolete ��uns to protect it. Mr. Neill quoted General Mc-
Rrlen as stating that the next war
would be in tlie Pacific.
Tlio value of public works in Vancouver and Victoria was estimated at
$200,000,000, and a coast line of 10,000
miles was absolutely defenceless.
Most important of all was thc defence
of * shipping. The greatest damage
could be-done there, and the object of

destruction of shipping.

Mining News
A general meeting of the Prince
Henry Mining Co., waB held in I.
H. Hallett's oflice on Saturday
morning laBfc. The following directors were elected:���A. C. Mesker,
It. Lee, J. McKellar, J. N. Paton,
G. B. Taylor, G. A. Rendell and M.
L. Rendell. The officers elected
were G. B. Taylor, president, John
McKellar, vice-preBident and J. N.
fPaton, sec.-treas. The offer of G.
S. Walters to purchase the property on a term of three years was
favorably considered and the proper
officers were directed to execute an
option on the lines agreed upon.*
The Prince Henry is one of the
old time mines of the district and
was located under the above name
by G. A. Eendell in 1902 and shortly afterwards was taken over by
tWPrince Henry-Mining Co. Ltd.,
which carried on development
work, sinking a shaft and making
several drifts. The veins on the
property carry high values in gold
and silver.
After a number of years of idleness the Prince Henry resumed
operations a few weeks ago by the
Boundary Equipment Co., the company comprising of Gr. S. Walter?,
J. W. Clark and others. A blacksmith shop and compressor house
were erected; the shaft pumped out,
cleared of waste rock and retimber-
ed; a Diessel engine installed to
handle the hoist and a tractor to
run fte compressor. Five men are
employed with Jack Morrison in
charge. Drilling has commenced
and iu a few days ore wilVbe taken
out from this well known property.
A concentrator has been installed
in town and will-be run in connection with the mine, and .for tbe
treatment of custom ore.

The amount of butter exported to
Japan v through Vancouver during
1924 was nearly twice that of 1923,
according to figures supplied by
the Japanese consulate at that point.
The report shows that in 1924 the
quantity was 476,454 pounds, as
compared with only 299,695 pounds
in 1923. Total cheese shipments to.
the same destination last year
amounted to \ 2,685 pounds, a.*
againsit only 40 iri 1923.
A recent analysis of immigration
according to occupation of immigrants arriving in Canada since 1920
shows a steady increase in the ratio of agriculturists and domestics towards all others. In 1921
the figure was 35 per cent. It was
44 per. cent for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1922,* 47 per cent for
the fiscal year 1923-24 and 51 per
cent for-the nine moriths_ April to
.December, 1924.
. One of the outstanding features
of the Grain Commission Board's
report, for the season 1922-23, was
,the tributa paid .to the excellent
t service rendered by . the Canadian
.Pacific Railway in handling the
.western crop. Though the company
handled 105,000 cars of grain, it received only six complaints about
lack of cars from the railway and
commission combined. In 1923-24,
.with an even larger-number handled,- there were only eight fcoiri-
