Of Unexpected Volume
Mr. Blaylock stated the zinc concentrates were coming in to the smol-
ter in a volume not anticipated, not
only from the Kimberley con-centra-'
tor which .handles the ore of the Sullivan mine, but also from properties
shipping under the custom ore schedule, ancl that, pending a final solution
the excess concentrates would be sent
abroad, filling contracts the company
had in Europe.

states the Fraser River Stevedoring
company is planning to handle 20,000
tons of these concentrates In the next
few months.  - ���
Adding to Lead Plant
The lead plant, in spite of the great
extension that came into use last
year, is also loaded to capacity. Mr.
Blaylock stated, but in this case relief is more or less in sight, as a new
extension of 50 tons capacity is under construction, on which work was
started some weeks ago.���Nelson

A striking and highly significant chart has just been Issued based oil returns made to tho Dominion Bureau of Statistics at Oltawa, and one which
should convoy a sharp lesson to all parents and to thousands of youths and
young mon.
This chart, which is easily understood, is in two parts. Part one sets
forth the average hourly rate paid eight trades in each of thirteen Canadian
cities, -while the second part shows the average hourly rale of wages paid labor
in building track's in these thirteen cities.
Th first pari, while interesting and instructive, does not carry the samo
important object lesson to people as does the second patt. It does show
that the. average hourly wage is higher in'Winnipeg than elsewhere in .Canada, with Regina second, 'Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton tied fo*r third place,
Vancouver fourth, and with Victoria, Hamilton, Ottawa, Montreal, St, John,
Halifax and. Quebec following in the order named. In tho five cities first
mentioned the average hourly rate.of wage is in excess of ninety cents,1, iucludr
ing laborers, While in .Quebec, the lowest, it is.sixty cents.
The second part of" the chart shows that the average hourly rate, of wages
paid taking all these thirteen cities together was as follows: Bricklayers, ��1.10;
plasterers,-$1.06; stonecutters, 93 cents; plumbersySS cents; electricians, 80
cents; carpenters, .78 cents; painters, 71 cents7laborers, -U cents. -Working these rates out on the basis of an eight-hour day, we get i.he following results: Bricklayers, 58,80; plasterers, $S.4S; stonecutters, ?7.1-1; plumbers,
��7.04; electricians,' $6.-10; carpenters, $6.24; painters, ?5.6S; laborers, ?'j.52.
In other words, the young man whose parents took a sufliciently deep interest in his welfare to see to it that he learned a trade, or the boy who as a
result of his own ambition and initiative mastered a "trade, commands a wage
two to three times as great as the ono who is not so equipped for life's work.
Nor is this all. The trained workman can usually find employment .When
the common unskilled laborer has-'to spend half iiis time looking for work and
frequently without being able to get it, or anything belter than an odd job
now aud then. At the present timeyin several'Western cities the building
"trades-are-very active, and the statement has been ��nade that there is no need
���for any man to lack employment. .Nevertheless, scores of men were out of
���employment. Why? /Because at the very time, when bricklayers, carpen-
-ters'aml otlier.arlizans "wero*belng imported fronr other cities to meet the
���demand, there was a surplus, of-pick-and shovel men for whom no work could
be provided. -*.-..-'���. ...-.'.': .
��� In modern construction oii any large scale, excavations are now dug with
steam shovels, cement is-mixed by machinery, hoisting is done by machinery,
'���with the result that only a minimum number of laborers is employed,     The
work is thus done more rapidly aud much" cheaper, ancl higher wages can-be
paid the skilled workers because of the greater and fetter results .achieved.
���  The unskilled laborer - .alone suffers,    "    ���������������.-. .

the White North do not include the
Pole, but he has attained "tyenty-ono
objects which affect the niaps of the
MucMMan's recent book shows he
has disproved Crocker Land. He
has found evidence "of a new land far
to tho west of his last camp on tho
Polar Sea. Surveys of previously unexplored areas have brought much significant matter to light while the discovery of coal iu Bay Fiord and his
finding of records of the Kane and
second Grinnel expedition, added further credit to his, worlc. Another feature has been his extensive contribution in the fields of geology, botany,
ornithology and meteorology.
MacMiilan also has done. many
things for the inhabitants of that
land, among wliich was his aid in compiling a dictionary of 3,000 words ot
the Escjuimo language.
Commander MacMiilan gives, an
inkling of the spirit which moves
the explorer info the northland.
"The weapons which 'assail the explorer are extreme . temperatures,
heavy snows, drift',* bitter winds,
treacherous thin ice, high' pressure
ridges; and often the result is starvation diet, sickness, death," he says.
"Through centuries man has struggled
ever and on and out, over No Man's
Land., rushing the thin ice of leads,
scaling lowering ice caps, staggering
along uncharted coasts and wearily
planting his flag upon hitherto, un-.
known* truths, glorying in his struggle against fhe elements for. the accumulation of knowledge."
Mexican Millers, Purchase Portion of
Their Requirements Here
According to all indications a gratifying success has attended efforts
made to induce Mexican millers to
purchase a portion of the wheat they
need from Canada. During 1925 shipments were made through New York
brokers and later direct from Canadian
exporters . through New York.' Now
shipments are being made through
Vancouver-via Panama Canal to Vera
Cruz., and Tampico. This is a now
market for Canadian wheat and promises to be an increasing one. In the
eleven months ended February, 192(3,
Mexico took 110,068 bushels of Canadian wheat, this being more than
double- the nuantily taken in the samo
period ending February, 1924.

possible to send the recognizable likeness or a human Ca'ce with constantly-

Definition Of. Life. Insurance
Good, Investment On Which Annua
Income Is Not Expected
Life insurance is ont-' thing, and oue
thing' only. In tho sijcial and economic-order,'it performs a single artii
simple service. II is the-money indemnification I'or the destruction of a
valuable human life. We insure our
ive.. for the same .reason that we insure our houses and our ships. All
hree things havo a money value; a
stand momentarily in danger'of des-
motion, and all: are. insured for the
purpose of recouping ourselves or our
dependents for I lieu r loss. This protection is something we buy. We paj
money for it; lhat. is, il is an'outgo,
an expedilure, never an income. Our
expectation in purchasing insurance Is
that when we lose, or die, our dependents will not be beggared. * This is so
great an advantage, il adds so'wonder-
fully to the suni of human happiness,
'that we are willing to pay for it all It
costs. No one regards the insurance
upon his house���his fire insurance���
as an investment���as something upon
which he receives an annual income;']"
and no more should he so regard tho
insurance upon his life.���Wheat ley

How Gold  Mine Came To  Be Called
Flin Flon
How thcFIln Flon, Northern Manitoba's copper mine, got its name ,w,as
related at the annual meeting of the
Mining Corporation, held recently.
A party was paddling down the
lake on which the Flin Flon discovery
was made. Aybook was found on the
shore, containing thc story of a Chinese named Flin Flon, who discovered
a bottomless lake. Flin Flon invem-
eclTa boat in which he made a trip to
the bottom-of the lake, the, storysaj-s.
His journey took him into, a now world,
where women were bosses* instead of
men. This did not suit Flin Flon and
he made a hasty return to the surface
of the earth, with the women chasing
him with sticks.
A few days later when the party discovered the historic break which has
now become Flin .Flon mine���one of
them said: "This looks like the place
where Flin Flon came up���." ���
So they called it "Flin Flon" and
Flin Flon it was incorporated.

In giving, judgment against, a delinquent subscriber recently. Judge
O'Reilly, of, Cornwall, Ontario, made
the statement that newspaper publishers had a hard enough time in financing tho business without being done

If a person desires to stop a newspaper the proper way is for hint to
pay all arrears and get a receipt, or
if he has paid, refuse to take the paper at the post office and havo a record made of his refusal. A man
who owed for a newspaper could not
stop taking it and expect the publisher to go without his pay. ,
It may be added, that no publisher
wishes to force his newspaper on anyone and any subscriber desiring to
discontinue his paper will not have
the slightest trouble if he does so in
an.honest and businesslike way.
Hundreds of dollars are lost evary
year to publishers by those, wlio after
a 'subscription has expired for three
or six months, discontinue the paper
and send'it back as "refused". The
amount is too sniall for the .publisher
t> make a fuss over,"but all the same-
it amounts to a neat little sum in a

It is universally known that milk,
besides a refreshing drink is a very
valuable food, supplying the necessary elements for growth and health
in an easily digestible form. Unfortunately, many adults and some children have a distaste for milk' in its
natural state. The Dominion Department of Agriculture has just issued a
small circular,.distributed free by its
Publications Brunch, Ottawa, which'
gives a number of recipes for milk
drinks to . suit any taste. They are
easy to prepare, delicious and refreshing. In making them,'- ordinary
household flavoring extracts, spices,
juices from fresh or canned fruits
or fruit syrups ,may be used; "soda
These recipes will'be especially valuable in the case of children who have
a fancied dislike tor milk and for
invalides whose food consists, mainly
of liquids,' and who would relish a
change in lhe flavor and appearance
of the milk they drink,
As a result of investigation'following representations from official sources, the American Automobile Association has broadcast a strong warning against the practice of indiscriminate waving of the Stars and Stripes
from United States tourist, autos in
The practice, the national motoring
body asserted, has caused needless irritation, hurt Canadian "sensibilites,
and has already resulted in som& untoward - incidents. Canadian officials,
said the statement, while desirous in
every way of promoting International
tourist traflic, even to the extent ot
being less strict in the case of United
States tourists, are nevertheless apprehensive over the flag-waving com-
plex of visiting Americans.
Commenting on: the  situation,  the
' A. A. A. urged, car owners either to
abstain from displaying the flag while
in Canada", or to carry the Stars and
Stripes and the ..Union Jack in con -
���'��� junction.
The statement concludes. "Failure
on.the part of tourists to heed this
warning will In all probability lead to
a stricter customs regulation on both
/sides of the border. This would be a
highly undesirable outcome because it
would delay traffic and increase congestion at-important points   of  exit
and entry."    .' W
