Speaking in London at the annual

The fierce light that used to beat on
the throne was now concentrated on

finding some scare about food poisoning, food preservatives, food adulteration, with dietetic recommendations

Wc believe Canadians do aspire to those higher things, and this belief is supported by'a growing recognition on thc part of press and people of
the importance of encouraging the development of a strong and ������worthwhile
Canadian literature. One concrete .evidence of this is found in. the ia-
��� creasing interest, taken in Canadian books, Canadian poetry, Canadian art and
musiq. Canadian authors' or Canadian book week has just been observed,
and observed more generally thau hi any previous year. Iu a strictly material
sense the surface idea may be to promote the sale of books by Canadian
authors and publishers, 'but the main, the underlying idea is 'to thus provide,
���encouragement to Canada's native, born writers and poets, and to make possible a Canadian literature which will be a sourer, of national pride, inspiration and strength. '  .,
Canada proved its greatness during the Great War not alone in the
trenches, or at Vimy Tadge, or iu the making of ���munitions, the raising of
foodstuffs, the financing of huge undertakings, or in I.he self-sacrifice of its

Great Service To Mankind
If Scientists Can Discover Cause and
Prevention of Common Colds
The ambition to "make colds as rare
as smallpox" la said to be the moving
force behind the proposal of the Chemical Foundation to organize and support extensive and intensive scientific
research into.tho cause and prevention of common colds.
That this ailment yearly takes an
'enormous toll in discomfort and Ju
loss of energy is well known. That It
ls ono of the most difficult lo guard
against Is also accepted. Hut many
persons have long felt that medical
and lay men alike havo been too much
inclined to regard colds as inevitable.
The former havo not devoted enough
attention to prevention or cure and tho
latter have not realized the dangers
and Responsibilities o>f infection.
If, therefore, some organization of a
scientific character can undertake an
exhaustive study of colds in al) their
forms, and can find for them the preventives which,, unless tho lessons of
checking much more dangerous diseases are to be ignored, must exist, it
will bo doing a great' service lo mankind. Even when colds are not followed by graver illnesses like influenza or pneumonia,'they inevitably lower
the individual's resistance to all types
of sickness.���-New York Times.
Big Yields Per Acre
Reports of High Yields for Wheal in
Alberta ...���.*
Reports of high yields of wheat and
other grains are being sent from different parts of Alberta to tlie provincial
department of agriculture, from which
tho two following are taken: A. G.
Walker, a farmer, who lives at Irma,
Alberta, had 3 :i-3 acres of well
manured summerfallow laud sown
with -'Prelude wheat. Threshing if. recently tho machine tally recorded 3.12
bushls, or nearly 0-1 bushels per acre. ���
As an instanco of what good cultivated and well irrigated land will do,
a twenty-acre plot on thc farm of J. E.
Tennant can be pointed out wliich
yielded 45 bushels to the acre. This
will, It is reported, be duplicated many
times over on good land ia the irrigated districts of Southern Alberta as returns come in this fall.
Did Not Spend Much
Williams' Pink Pills will be
pictorial history to acquaint future generations of Canadians with the heroism, the steadfastness, the   self-sacrifice of   our   people,   and   to     inspire
them to cultivate and maiutain those r|.ualilio3 aud. virtues wliich make for
truo national strength and greatness.
And it was a Canadian who produced the finest piece of poetry to have
.its inspiration in the Great War���Colonel McCrae's "In Flanders Fields,"���
of freedom and keep the faith for.which their sons heroically fought and died.
: Every Canadian home should have in. it some of the best Canadian books,
���and the number should be added   to   yearly   and   lo   the   extent   that   tho

Canada, will tliere be annexation of
Canada by the'TJnited Stales," declared
Premier Taschereau to the British
United Press. "I don't believe there is
any real movement In;that direction.
Thero are three million -French-Canadians in Canada, and they are a very
happy lot. They have -much love - for-
British institutions, wheret'we have
found liberty in everything we cherish.

Another Toronto home provides evidence of how a simple cut, ecratch or
bruise, may pave the way to deadly
blood-poison, and how vital is the need
for keeping Zam-Buk, always handy ?
When called upon at 3, Bushncas
Avenue, Mrs. J. h. Zealley, daughter
o/ thclateDr.Bevan.of St. David's,S.
Wales, said:���"My boy Alfred scratched his leg^with the brass tag of a shoe
lace.^ A nasty poisoned sore developed
and it defied all the usual ointments.
Hearing splendid reports about Zam-
Buk I decided to give it a trial. To my
prcat relief, the balm soon caused healing to uet in. All inflammation and
poisonous matter was ouickly removed
i>y Zam-Buk, and it healed the sore
without having a scar.
"Again when I fell over a steel fender
and injured my knee badly, Zam-Buk
alone saved me. My daughter, a nurse,
was of the opinion that only an operation could remove the mass of inflammation and pus. But I again pinned
my faith to Zam-Buk, and it cleansed
and healed the wound." All druggists
and stores sell Zam-Buk at fifty cents
per box. Equally valuable for eczema,
pimples, cuts, burns, etc.

Relics Of Franklin
Mute Evidence of Tragic Sattle
Against Hunger and. Cold
Further relics of the ill-fated Franklin Expedition have come to light���a
skull, fragments of navy cloth, a piece
of shoe leather, and a piece of oak
from an ico sled, picked up by a trader,
Peter Norberg, at Thunder Cove, Adelaide peninsula, ten miles across tne
Simpson strait from King William
land, off whose northern point the
"Erebus" and "Terror" were abandoned, seventy-eight years ago.
J. 1<\ Moran, inspector Tor the-. North
West Territories and Yukon branch of
the Canadian Government, brought
back, iheso latest Franklin relics���ior
(here is liltle reason lo question lhat
such they are���on his return, from Ak-
lavlk, in the Mackenzie delta, to Edmonton.
- Medical men aud anthropologists
have examined the skull and pronounced it to be chat of a white man.
All (he toe Ih save ono molar are absent
from the skull, aiul the jaw bono is
pitted as though rotted with.,._curvy.
The navy cloth Is faded and stained
from conlacl with iiea water audi from
long exposure in the t-lemenls, but It
is clolh of the type used for genera-
lions, in theunalcing of the uniform of
P.ritish seamen. '
The piece of oak is apparently part
of a rib from a snow sled, shaped and
cut' ojf at one end with a saw. Thc
strip of leather is evidently part of a
white man's shoe.
Finally, the location of the relics
llieinsclves lends color to the theory
ihat these are relics of lhat tragic
battle, against hunger, cold and exhaustion which ended in death on the
inhospitable rocks of King William's
Land., or on the ice of Simpson strait.,
as the last survivors dropped the
frozen traces from their bloodless
hands and laid, themselves down to

World's Highest City
Potosi in Bolivia is 13,388 Feet- Above
Sea Level /
The highest cily in the world Is
Polosi in Bolivia, South America. It
stands on a great tableland 13,388 feet
above"sea' level. Potosi'is also potentially the wealthiest city in the world.

that tremendous altitude 25.000 white
men and Indians pass tnelr lives under

**   * -      f
Potosi, a sinister metallic mountain,
out of whose bowels fabulous quantities of silver have been dug. Since the
discovery of the Potosi; mines, 400
year's ago, over 20,000 tons of bar silver have been taken from this one
mountain alone, enough to form a column of solid silver one square foot in
section ancl rising to 1.6,000 feet. '
In addition, immense quantities of
tin, gold, bismuth, copper, marble, ancl
sulphur have" been produced. It was
Potosi that supplied tlie bulk of the
precious ingots that found their way
lo Spain, in the treasure-galleons of
history.     -' ,       ,
The'city was'founded, in .1546 by
treasure-hunting Spanish adventurers,
and the story of its foundation and
growth is told in the ancient archives
which still exist in the-city loday. ,
At the height of its prosperity It
could boast of 60 'churches and a population of 160,000. 'But with tho abolition of bimetallism and consequent depreciation in the value of silver the
city fell upon evil .days. The d,isusea
factories in the city outskirts and tho
many, magnificent public buildings
falling into ruin today tell their tale of
decay. It is still, nevertheless, an active and wealthy city.
Canada Should Develop
Strong National Spirit
Children Must be Taught to Take
Pride in Being Canadians
Says the Horder Cities Star:"If Canada needs anything it is the development of a strong national spirit. Our
children; from coast to coast, irrespective"of racial sources, must be taught
to glory in'the 'fact. Just the other
day the writer of these lines* talked
to ari.eager-eyed, olive-skinned lad, obviously the son . of South ' European
parents. "And what country do you belong .to?", the' boy was asked. His reply was prompt, "I'm a Canadian!" he
said, and the words were uttered with
pride. That is the spirit. Let's have
more of it. And at the same time it
would be .well, for-Canadians of Anglo-
Saxon slrain to be more considerate
in their use of Urn word "foreigtu*."
Except for the Indians, we are all for-'
eigners more or less. Canada lias
grown to her present position because
so-called foreigners were willing to
come. in. Many millions more of them
will be required here before we reach
the national success for which every
true Canadian should strive. And in
Canada, let us make sure, every man
who is willing to work should he given
fair opportunity and equality of treatment.

Stories About Famous People
London Theatre Manager Has Entertaining Bock of Anecdotes
Iu an entertaining book of reminiscences Sir Squire Bancroft, the London theatre-manager, tells a quantity of
good "anecdotes about famous people
lie has known.
One, wliich we think-has-been printed before is that which Browning, the
poet, told him of Longfellow.
Tlie two poets wero once driving
througli the London streets in a hansom cab, when a heavy shower sud:
tlenly came on. Longfellow insisted
upon thiustiug the umbrella Ihrougn
the. trap in. the roof of the cab, so.that
the driver might protect himself from
ihe rain-���which he did. That is precisely what you-might expect Longfellow to do-r-a kind-hearted generous
'gentleman if ever one lived.
Another concerns George Thi Manner, tho famous illustrator and author
of Trilby. lTo was always, annoyec:
when anyone called him de Maurier
instead of tlu Matirier. Tie said once:
"Follows will write to me as do Maiv
rler; I wish tliey would give the devil
his ilu."
The third story is about Archdeacon
Wilberforce, who was ono of tho
earliest foes of the evolutionary hypothesis of Darwin. The Archdeacon was
visiting Sir John Hare at his seaside
homo at Overstrain!,~ and Hare, who
was very fond of dogs and was hardly
ever to be seen without one by him,
asked hiin this question:
"Uo you really believe, Archdeacon
in a hereafter for our dogs?"
"Indeed I do," said Wilbcrlorce.
"But do you mean that 1 shall really
see my dog again?" Hare persisted.-
"Undoubtedily���if   you     are
enough," was tho response.11

Plan Three Years of.
Road Construction
Plans for a three-year programme of road construction, the
most extensive ever undertaken
in this province, are being shaped
by the public works department
for the -approval of the Legislature at the forthcoming session.
First moneys to cover this far-
reaching scheme of highway improvement will be voted by the
House early in the year to cover
the 1927 work and in the two
succeeding years'- further funds
wilfbe provided. At the end of
three years, as a result of a policy
of improvement rather than new
construction, British Columbia's
whole highway system will have
been revolutionized.
The purpose of this scheme is,
first, to give all the settled areas
of British Columbia communication with the trunk highways and
thus with all the main centres of
population; ancl, secondly, to rebuild and relocate all the bad
sections-of existing roads.'.
Included in the programme are
improvements on the Anarchist
Mountain road, which links
Southern Okanagan and Osoyoos
country with the Greenwood area.
Four miles of the road over this
. difficult ascent must be entirely
relocated e and in this seption
scarcely any maintenance work is
being done meanwhile. Already
a large part of the old wagon trail
over the mountain has been rebuilt and with_ the completion of
this work a satisfactory route from
Osoyoos lake,over to the boundary
country will be available.
Capacity 10,000 feet daily, full equipment, including
Jencks return tube boiler set in brick, logging sleighs,
logging truck, all belting, No. 22 Hoyt planer good condition, can be-operated at once, ample timber. For further
particulars, apply to

"^EW citizens give thouglit~to"what the Brewing
Industry means to British Columbia, as an
industry, yet it is an important factor in the
industrial life of this province.
It is not necessary to emphasize th'e~ millions of
dollars invested in the brewing industry. in this
province. The thing that must not be lost sight of
is that there are hundreds of men. employed throughout the year in the making, storing ancl transporting
of the products of the breweries of British Columbia.
Breweries are constantly improving and keeping
modern their plants. The Amalgamated Breweries
of Bntish Columbia have spent over $300,000 in the
last few months for improvements and equipment.
Breweries are an important customer of the farmers
of British Columbia, their purchases of grain and
hops running into huge figures each year. There
is no British Columbia industry that spends more
brewing industry.
The brewing industry brings large sums of money
into the province. British Columbia beer is attracting
attention abroad for its purity and high quality.
Export markets in Australasia, China and India,
are constantly growing.
British Columbia beers are winning their way in
these countries in direct competition with beers from
Great Britain, Germany and Czecko-Slovakia. They
are winning their way on quality and they are
powerful advertisements for this province.
Tacts like these are not romantic, but they are
important and should be considered by every
citizen. They are not commonly mentioned by
those whose business it is to attempt to destroy
the brewing industry in their determination that
the people of British Columbia shall be prevented
from enjoying a pure and healthful beverage in
an open and above aboard taanner.
Proof of the high quality of the beer manufactured by the Amalgamated Breweries is
the remark on recent analysis made by
McDonald and McDonald, analytical chemists
of Vancouver, "stating:
"By the analysis, samples prove to be excellent
beer. They are high in extract, nitrogenous
matter, phosphoric acid and ash, while the
acidity is low and the volatile acidity practically
nil, which is proof that the beer is a wholesome
nutritious beverage.",
