The contest, which was held at

caused the usual keen interest and
proved a great success. The

on the uniform lot of bacon hogs
which he said would be hard to
beat in the Province, and he
strongly advocated the^farmers of
the district raising such type ..of
hogs on a large scale, so that the
buyers at the coast -could be
brought in to ship them in carload
lots to help fill the. required
market of the Province, which at
the present time is mainly done
by the importation from other

test throughout the Province will

In'olher Avords, in the now Parliament, unlikfe the old; thorp, is a clear
majority of members returned iu support of one particular leader and who
accepted nomination at the hands of conventions of the Liberal party. That
is, thi! complexion of the new House of Commons makes ^possible a more
htable form of government than existed in the. last two Parliaments,
Then, over and above, the clear-cut majority of the Liberal and Liberal-
Progressives united in support of a I.ib'eral Administration, numerous Progressives, Independents, Labor and UnifetJ,,-Farmer members, practically all

victorious will Jiud a degree of national gratification In tho fact that the rent It has been fairly decisive and the stalemate, which has prevailed for So
long to the,disadvantage of the whole country, broken. It la what both
of the major political parties desired audi asked for, and what it has been dem-
tuistratecl a majority of thc constituencies wanted.
And now to business. Let everybody settle down to tho task of assisting Canada to overtake such-- ground as may havo been lost, owing to the
uncertainties of the .situation in the past and grasp the splendid opportunities
which are open to tl'.e Dominion.
in tbis column last, week the view was expressed that whatever party was
placed in power it should dqvoto its energies to the further promotion of the
policy of negotiating trade treaties .'witli other countries, and particularly
with all other sister nations within the Empire, and thus open to Canadian
���products and manufacturers larger and more profitable markets. "We now
desire to repeat and lo .emphasize that, declaration. -Since it was written a
.week ago, evidence -has accumulated to demonstrate its wisdom.
On the day of the election a largo display advertisement���not of political character���was inserted hi Canadian papers by one of the largest automobile manufacturing concerns in the Dominion. It was headed: "The Millions Gained by Export-are- Millions Saved for You," and it went on to point
out that it was owing to the rapid increase in its export business that reductions in price'had been made possible in. Canada, because of the enormously
greater volume.of production and oon.seo.uent increase in efficiency and in
lower- production costs. It was not a tariff! shutting out competition which
had brought increased prosperity to this Arm, but the opening of new and'
wider markets abroad through.trade treaties, and leading to greater production, larger, purchases, of materials in Canada, and the employment of
many 'hundreds more of Canadian5 workers.       ; ;        ���      W
More evidence of a similar nature- is found in au article by the chairman
of flic British Columbia ^Division of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association
who "gives a long list of both direct and indirect benefits accruing to Canada from "the 'recently negotiated treaty 'with Australia, and whicli he estimates means thc gain of a $70,000,000 market for this country. /This Manufacturers' Association official makes a strong plea for a continuation of this
policy of negotiating trade treaties, and, above all, that a stop be put to the
making of a. political football out of. such matters; WW. ���*.: .7
- ,11,is right and proper that such treaties should be carefully examined and
���fuliv-'iUscufisod by Parliament and the People of Canada, bu�� when:they have
heerf'approved aiid put into effect the efforts of petty politicians )o try and
eroaie party capital; against the Government of the day by seeking-* to arouse
mie Met of'people against the treaty because of some one; particular item in
it; and another set because of some other item, instead or-viewing the treaty
in' a II its nation-wide aspects,- should be frowned upon and resolutely opposed.
Canada produces a -:surplus of nearly everything raised in this country;
increasing number 'of people, that'surplus must be profitably disposed offin
world markets. In order to obtain eutry into those'markets on the most
advantageous terms, Canada must.offer some concessions in return. That
is only business,, and the same principles must govern in international business as in private and domestic business relations.

Hideous "Dragons" For
New York Museum
Lizards  Eight  Feet Long   Were Captured In  Malay Archipelago
Two monstrous "dragons" arrived at
New York on the Cunard lluer Aqul-
tauia-- from tho Tsland of Komodo in
the Malay Archipelago.
The "dragons," great lizards eight
feet long and weighing 200 pounds,
were captured by Douglas Burden, a
trustee of tho American "Museum of
Natural History. The saurians' appearance is horrid in the extreme.
They arc as thick as a man's body and
are entirely covered witli close protective armor. They have short,'
stubby legs on which they are able to
run faster than, a man. They have
red forked tongues and make a,hissing noise like escaping steam. Oue
of their peculiarly nasty qualities i.s
that they 'are entirely carnivorous.
While the expedition to EComodo
sought their capture, one of them
leaped on the back of a horse and so
injured the animal that it had to bo
jThe other demonstrated its prowess
by consuming the .hindquarters of a
deer at. a single meal.
'Phe "dragons" are the, only specimens of their kind in captivity. Their
kole knowu habitat is Komodo, Avhere
Alan Cobham, British aviator, saw
them from the cockpit of his plane as
he flew over the Malay Archipelago.

New Method to Extract Many Products

From 500 tons of coal a Russian
scientist would extract, by a new
method whi'-h he has invented and
which is being seriously considered
in Great Britain, the following products:
2,000 gallons of gasoline.
(i,r>00 gallons of kerosene.
^5,000 gallons of lubricating oil.

20,000 pounds of phenol.

12,000 pounds of sulphur.
And even after that ho would have

Achievement In Europe
Lady   Asto
i-   Tells   Americans
Should  Rejoice
Auu-ricans should rejoice in Europe's, post-war progruss rather than
"hold up their hands in horror at the
present situation," Viscountess Astor,
M.P.. declared in New York.
The admission of Germany into tho
League oi Nations, with "tho world's
greatest war only bight years over,"
she said, was an achievement of
which Europe was proud, "no matter
what you in America think."
In her ^address before the National
audi New York League of Women
Voters, Lady Astor said that while
"many thinking noorlo" believe tho
United States has taken the wrong-
course in the matter of International
debts, she was not "discouraged by
national or international mistakes."
Nations learn from their mistakes���
at least some do," she - said, "aud
there, is no reason to be downhearted."

Its Agility
A veritable "spriug-heeled Jack" has
arrived at the London Zoological Gardens in the form of a Cape jumping
hare, the first of its kind exhibited" ln
the menagerie since 1890.
y The Cape jumping hare is found in
South Africa, but it has jumped about
so much that it has extended its range
js far north as Mozambique .and Angola.

Fourteenth Century
Thc town council of. Stratford-ou-

trust iu deciding that Clopton Bridge,
over which Shakespeare walked, shall
not be pulled down.
.The old4bridge, with its fourteen
small but beautiful arches, was built
late in the fourteenth century-by that
Sir Hugh Clopton who also built the
house in which Shakespeare afterwards lived, and whicli another mem*
ber of his houso destroyed later.
There must have beem another bridge
long before it, and before.that a ford,
for It certainly'represents a very ancient highway. Indeed, the Romans
may have used it, for they are known
by their coins to have lived not far,
away. -
By Shakespeare's time it must, have
been well weathered, .and we can imagine him lingering ��� ou'it with Anne
Hathaway, gazing on one of England's
fairest scenes.

Japan Is Artificial
Thinks   Its   Handiwork
Superior to Nature    -
A traveller, after spending many
Vears in Japan, states that the most
wonderful thing about the Flowery
Kingdom is ils intense artificiality.
It is as though they are s(�� proud of
-thu works of their hands, that they
would compete with nature, excel her
in their own.estimation, making her
beauties -.give place to hand-made
^The whole idea^of the Japanese Garden is purely artificial. It is as
��� hough a taskmaster is attempting to
discipline a refractory child, y It is
always kepfv.viLhin'TigJd' hounds. There
is no carelessness, (mijrioiiug,- no running wild. Ii is* all strictly self-coti-
scious. ' Laid 'out'hi 'raquisitp detail,
ii is. I rue,-Inii laid out lb .order.;
v Above all, the manners Qf the.Japanese are highly art iiicial. Thcy are
spoken of as the most polite people
iu the world. They certainly do trip
mosl bowing' and scrapiug, and take
the longest time to strike a bargain,
if that i.s a sign of good manners. Ilin
they are seldom natural In conversation:- Most-of'tliGm have learnt a
lew phrases, ssuch as "Very sorry,"
." Very nice,", which' t hey repeat - wit h
clock-like regularity. /Their whole
ntciludo, however, appears to he* a
strict conforming to an-unwritten code
of rules.
There is little spontanioty about
ihem, except their humor, which ou
Iirst glance appears natural. They
have a delightful way of screwing up
their faces at the slightest jest. Un
the other hand, it is possibly regarded merely as good manners to laugh
at a stranger's joke.
All these impressions may be the
result of ignorance of the language
The Japauese, iu his own language,'
may convey- a very different impression. No man should be judged in a
foreign language. Hur a.s tho average foreigner has paly a smattering
of Japanese, there is no help Jor il.
Japan would have been more appreciated in tho'eighteenth century, ai-
,tiHcialily was lo ihe eighteenth; coi!-
^-tury.-r-what-naturo-Js to-us. Wit.i^uoi
to lie wondered at, then, that Japan Is
regarded somewhat sceptically, by'the
artificial eye of his ago. .-    - ���   ������

Strange Hiding Places
Folk'who distrust banks, like ,the*

Modern Science Is Endeavoring Tp

Solomon in his day said, after year.;

quite possible that if Solomon 'were
to^be dropped into the heart of one of
this 20th cenlury world's great modern cities, he might change his views.
However, there aro many supposedly modern things of which the ancient people ha"d a greater knowledge
than have the people of today.

was rediscovered by the Bavarian -potter Fischer in quite recent times.
Lanolin, tlie fat made from tho wool
of sheep, was "manufactured and used
by 'the Greeks'2,000 years ago. '.Jlere
again the secret was .completely lost
and quite forgotten until rediscovered late in the nineteenth century.

their rulers in a way x;e cannot match
today. Modern iscience is endeavoring to recapture this lost kiowledge.

In a certain village in Wales, it 'is,,

in any other part of the British Islesv
A local medical oflicer, when asked
for au explanation of the definite types
which 'still persisted, in the villages 'of
this part of Wales, said "he had found
even the smallest communities verr-
conservativj} in their marriage rela-_
tions, and they rarely went outside
their own "clan" to find a partner for
life. Another remarkable feature he
had noted was (he evidence of Spanish blood among many of the women
on the coastal villages. He had found
the type to pe'rslst eveu,after hundreds
qf fears. ��� "In one family l visit," lie
said, ''the/ parents, whose people have
lived in the village all their lives, and
look Welsh, have daughters who could
pass; anywhere as Spanish girls."

When the First Trans-Canada Pulled
1. The first Transcontinental train In 1886.
of today >
The fortieth anniversary of the first Trans-Canada
train has recently been celebrated by the Canadian
Pacific Railway. It was the 28th of June 1886 when the
train pulled out of Dalhousie Square Station/Montreal,
on its long pilgrimage of 2,290 miles acrosathe Dominion.
There were people present who were very pessimistic, but
today they are proud of that memorable day in June ���
. for it marked the period when the various provinceaof
British North America'��� were bound together by a
material bond.       ��� ... u.
At eight o'clock on that day, passengers filled with the
excitement of the great adventure boarded the train,
which was composed of an engine and ten cars, including
two baggage cars, a mail car, two first class^coaches, two
emigrant sleepers, the sleepers "Yokohama" and "Honolulu   and the dining car "Holyrood."
As the news BjJread that the first transcontinental
train'was on its way, little settlements of hardy pioneers
and Indians in all their grandeur, turned out to wat<5h the
"White man's fire waggon" speed along its newly-laid
shining "right of way".     *   ��    W
The old locomotive which pulled the fust Atlantic
Express into Port Moody, now Vancouver, looks quaint
to modern eyes. It burned cordwood, and with its big
smokestack and generous display of polished brasswork,
which shonelike gold, its array of flags and floral decorations it made an imposing spectacle. The engineer of the
train was "Bob Mee", one of the best .known railroad
men of that time, and he pulled into Port Moody, B.C.
sharp on time, six days after it left Montreal.

(7s* HERE is no season for the enjoyment of
y^J the benefits of pure, healthful beer. Not
only in summer, but also in the cooler
months its tonic properties are of the greatest
value in the fortifying of the body against the
strain and tension of modem life.
��� Used regularly with meals pure beer imparts ..
not -only the nourishment of tlie, grains 7
from v.-hich it is made; it assists valuably
in the assimilation of other foods, and with
its vitamin content makes up for the lack
of vitamins .from which modern .diet so
often suffers.*    "
.Pure beer, such as is made_ for the people of
British Columbia by the Amalgamated Breweries,
is of low alcoholic strength���only 4i%, as called
for by law���only enough to stimulate the bodily,
functions and rest' the nervous system.
Many qualified physicians prescribe pure ���
beer as a beverage for nursing mothers,
both for its tonic action and on account
of its richness in malt "extractives that so
.7   fit the physical needs of nursing mothers.
Every day in the year you may have beer, carefully brewed ���
by the Amalgamated Brewers, on your tabic, as a useful
and zcstful pari of your meals. You.may buy it by. the
