when they got here that they had
to"turn around and"'go"back to

were all the way from Chicago
and it meant -that they had come
some 75 miles'- out of their way.

Mahatma Gandhi, the great Indian
Nationalist idol, states, "I would prohibit the Importation of intoxicating

search their pockets and depiive them

lock them together in one room and

Hearts Of < Oak
British People Never Stood Higher In
Respect and Confidence of the
The British as a political people never yet stood higher in ihe respect audi
confidence of the world. If they were
not steady as a rock through the thousand troubles ciowding upon them ln
homo and foreign and impeiial afiairs,
there would be no hope of stability In
Europe, and none of avoiding anarchy
in Asia. In tliat sense we are the
keystone of a ponderous aich, and if
we fell the whole wide structure cf the
old woild would crash. In the eighth
year the Armistice we are still holding
firm, despite anxieties, disappointments, cries, not even coming one at a
time, but often besetting us from all
quaiters together in a way that might
have worn out the heart and fibre of a
less solid breed.���J. L. Garvin, in London Obseiver.

Manitoba Dairy Industry
Growth. In Recent Years Has Been
The growth of the dairy industry in

Small Monoplane
A young French mechanic in a factory at Dijon has just invented a
bicycle tha*t flies.

Paris the Frenchman had been working on his invention several years

he calmly carried away the original

Explanations and Comments
I. Tho People Complain of Lack of
Food, , verses -1-3.���This is the third
recorded "murmuring": see tho Historical Background. "Would that Ave
had died by the-hand of Jehovah in
the land of Egypt," the people cried,
"when we'sat by the flesh-pots, when
we did eat bread to the full."
They remember the flesh-pots, but
not the affliction. Human nature
does not change. Murmurers still
have, short memories, The spectacles of regret magnify past blessings
and bedwarf past sufferings.
��� The Israelites even accused Moses
of having brought them forth into the
wilderness to kill theni all with hunger!
"It is -worthy of remark that those
who are the most unworthy of liberty
are wont Jo behave most ungratefully
towards their deliverers" (Milton), y
II. Food*\%- Promised, verses" 4-12.���
And Jehovah spake unto Closes, saying, "I, have heard the munnurlngs of
the children of Israel: speak unto
them, saying, At even ye shall eat
flesh, and in the morning ye sliall be
filled with bread; and ye shall know
that I am Jehovah your God"���you
shall know it by this manifestation of
my power and care. Here ln the
early part of the wilderness life tire
complaints of the people are treated
with mildness, as if made by irresponsible children; but toward the end of
their journeyings such complaints are
severely punished, for ^fter so many
years' experience of God's providence,
something better was expected. from

Auxiliary Lungs
Artificial- Lungs Provide Air Pilot's
With Oxygen For High Altitudes
Auxiliary lungs enabling airmen to
reach unprecedented heights, are said
to have been perfected by a French
chemist, M. Garsaux. Th Academy
of Science regards the invention as
one of the v most important to, the
science o'f aviation in recent years'
Artificial liings, adjusted to a rheo-
stadt, provide pilots with increasing
amount of oxygen as the plane climbs.
Experiments have shown that a pilot
can'stand minimized air pressure! corresponding to a climb of 50,000 feet,
hitherto unattainable by man.

London.���"The Labor party last
week heard Right Hon. L. C. M.
Amery, secretary of state for the dominions, answer' a question regarding
the constitutional diiliculty in Canada
to its satisfaction, and I feel that ho
expressed the attitude of every party
on the house." In this manner J. H.
Thomas, Labor member for Derby,
prefaced a speech with which he open-
. ed a debate on dominion-colonial relations in the House of Commons. Mr.
Thomas said' he wished to. avail, hinv
self of this -opportunity because general elections were pending.in Canada
and he desired to make clear to the
world what Great Britain meaju  by
- self-government and also to emphasize that whatever advice Governor-
General Byng gave during the parliamentary crisis in Canada* was, given
on his own responsibility. He declar;
ed the decision was given _ by the*
governor-general on j:he strength - oi
the "spot knowledge" he had had or
the situation and" stressed that there
had been no interference from Downing Street.        '   ��� '
The Labor member said/that, "with
jnore  amusement  than -interest,"  he
- had read a suggestion iu au American
newspaper that, owing to tlie wicked
action of tlie British Government,
Canada should free herself from the
tyranny of Downing- Street. Tho
paper had also suggested that Canada
bo handed -over to the "United States
on the terms of cancelling Great Britain's war debt to that country, and
Mr. Thomas held this to show: how
some peoplo did not al tempt to understand"" the, mentality and meaning of
the British-Empire.
With reference to the imperial conference,, which Premier Baldwin announced in the commons, would meet
,on October 19, two weeks later than
tho date first -_set. Mr. Thomas expressed the hope^that riot only the representatives of governments, but also
oppositions would be invited,     Thin.,
'ho pointed out, party spirit would bc
eliminated'and a greater continuity of
policy. wouldvbc secured. , ' ���
Nothing in'ihc nature-of debate occurred on--this part of Mr. Thomas'
speech,-but Lieut.-Col. -Amery, ^secretary for.the dominions, in lho cpurse
of a general reply/ in behalf 'Of the
government, emphasized that the ^dominions were just as'independent as
the Mother Country. The character
of their independence was" the same
ns the British,-only qualified by self-
imposed responsibiiitie's of mutual
loyalty and co-operation.
Gives Reason For Coal Strike
England  Returned-Too Soon to Gold
Standard Says Beaverbrook'
~~~~ London.���Lord   Beavcrbrook  sailed
', recently on the White Star liner Ma-
jectic for Canada via New York. In a
long article printed over his signature
in The Daily Exp'ress on the eve of his
departure he declared the failure' of
the recent "proposition for the purchase of the White Star line by the
. British shipping industries was due
entirely to thc British official policy
of maintaining thc gold standard. He
intimated that the proposal to transfer 6,000,000 pounds from Britain to
���stho U. S. for the purchase of this line
was opp~osed by the-British financial
authorities on the ground1 that it would
depress the value of the pound in New

C. AE. Shaw, of Keremeos, has.
been here about two weeks surveying town lots and also the
mining claims of Emil Etchepare.
The open air dance held at the
home of Mrs. M. Hamon on July
31st was well attended. The
pavilion was beautifully decorated,
Japanese lanterns being hung
along the .wall made the place
very attractive. The music was
supplied by Mrs. T.W. Clarke,
T.. Crowe and F. Cousins, of
Beaverdell. Everybody had a
very.enjoyable time, despite the
chilly breezes from the Kettle
River." w W  '
July was a strenuous month at
""Carmi on account of many fires.
They-, are now _ well in hand
owing to the strict attention of
the fire wardens of this locality.
Thejfirst--fire was set by lightning
about 12 miles, west of here and
E.. S. Reynolds and A. Mellor
called all men available to.get the
blaze, under control. The firefighters had a tedious time as
a strong' wind caused them con-
��� siderable trouble before they were
able to, stop the fire. On July
.,25th it<is. thought that the sparks
from a freight .engine started the
second fire, about four miles from
here. All the section men from
Westbridge to Ruth and the crew
from, the work train were called
and owing to a heavy wind the
fire'spread with great rapidity and
by ha^d fighting the blaze is now
practically extinguished.
