There is something to appeal to every taste ahd inclination oT the human race.
Furthermore, probably iu no other country can a vacation he enjoyed at
less .expense "than in Canada. For a real holiday a person needs a complete
change of scene and an entirely different environment to ihat in which ten or

The Story Of    .
The America Cup

The hope of Sir Thomas Liplon will
win the'America Clip'in 1927,'may be
realized with the aid of a now yacht,
Shamrock V:; which"1'he 'intends to
build. The cup was originally won
at Cowes from a fleet.of.English racing craft in 1851, .by the sclioner
America, sent over from the United
States, and was presented by the Royal
.Yacht Squadron to "the owner, Commodore J. C. Stevens..' , Queen Victoria on the royal yacht was an
anxious spectator of ��� this first race,
and thb replies ol .her signalmaster
"America first," and--"Vour Majesty,
there is no second," and so on, becjiinc
legandary in the United Slates. The
commodore and his associates, .who
laler presented the cup to.the New
York Xaeht Club,' to be a'perpeUml
tiophy for internalional racing could
never in their wiklost dreams have
figured' that fortunes would be spent
over the now battered old piece of
silverware. . Lord Dimi'jiven challenged jon two occasions. Hie yacht,
Valkyrie III., lost to the Defender .in
the first race, and al. llie start or tlie
second,race au excursiou steamer interfered witli the manoeuvres of tho
two yachts as thcy crossed the starting line. As a result, the ' vessels,
fouled oue another, and the Defender's
topmaster was carried away. The race
was continued, howrevor, ,and the Valkyrie won, but was disqualified.. Lord
Dunraven amusingly describes in his
serio-comic storm thai .was raised.
"Thc London Slock Exchange cabled

Developing Individuality

Standardize Any One Type
W.   N.   V.   1C3R
One of tlitTweaknesses of democracy
is the tendency to standardize thought,
speech, manners and morals, conforming them to,the type favored by the
majority. In a democracy there is
always danger of the tyranny of majorities. That is why it is essential
to liberty and progress to safeguard
the rights of minorities.
This fact seems to be realized by
Hisliop Francis J. McConnell, of thc
Americanl-Methodist-Episcopal Church.
Iri'an address to a national gathering
of social workers af Cleveland hc
stressed -ithe desirability of encouraging the development of individuality.
To this end it is, ho said, necessary t.o

real titles bestowed by a genuine monarch bn three favorites during the last

in Hayti, and Christophe, a negro, declared, himself emperor./��� Through
conspiracy and plot he retained power
until 1S20, preserving to the last Uie

Inule waving of the'Stars, and .Stripes

This practice, the national motor-

untoward incidents. Canadian ollicials, said, the statement, whilo desir
otis in every way of proniolingunlei-
nalional tourist tratlic, oven lo the
cvien_ of being less strict in the' case
of United Stales tourists, are nevertheless apprehensive over the flag-
waving complex of visiting Americans.
Commenting on the situation, the
A.A.A. urged car owners either to
abstain from displaying (he . flag
while in Canada or to carry ihe
Stars aud Stripes aud the Union Jack
in conjunction.   ,
The statement concludes:  <������'
"Failure'on the pari'of tourists to
hee'd this warning will In all probability lead lo a stricter customs
regulation on both sides of Uie border.
This would bo a highly undesirable
outcome because it would delay traflic

Gradually Clearing Scapa Flow
Cruiser Hindenburg When Sciapped
Will More Than Pay Salvage Cost
Sunk by her crow at Scapa Flow-
over six years ago, rhe Gorman cruisei
Iliudenburg will be afloat again in a
few months. How is it to be done,
ancl what will happen Ihen?
Already Iwenly-one smaller warships have been brought lo the surface by means or wires passed under
I hem from /loafing docks, but the Hindenburg, with a tonnage of 27,000. is
much too heavy for that. She Is to_|
be made to rise of her own accord by
having the waler pumped out of her.
To do this all her pen tholes and all
lho eight "sea cocks"' Lho Gi-ruuins
opened to sink hu-r, will have lo be
covered with pal dies of concrete or
sleol. To pro I at Ihe sea cocks, whicli
are round holes in her hull, two foot
across, it will be necessary lo make
tunnels in the sea bed on which she
lies and fo scrape away the barnacles
and se.aweed that cover her bottom.
All-this will take twelve clivers six
months, but when they have done forty
pumps will pump out some thing like
150,000 tons or waler in twelve hous-s,
and the THudonburg will then slowly
rise to tho surface.
And what then? She will be run
aground and broken up foi- scrap, Ihe

The system'' of distribution of prenatal literature recently arranged by
the Child Hygiene Section of the
Canadian Council on Child Welfare,
and the Provincial Health Departments of the various provinces has
proved, extremely successful. Upon
application to the Provincial Departments of Health or to the Canadian
Council on Child Welfare at. Ottawa,
a series of pre-natal letters is forwarded regularly, free of charge. Ap-
lications have Heen received from
scattered outposts, far in""the interior of the provinces, scores of miles,
from the railways and miles from a
post office. Otlier applications come
from tiie large centres-of population
with well established health services,
where doctors or nurces have advised their patients to avail themselves
of the excellent information available in these letters.
The letters have been prepared by
an especially well qualified committee of medical men, and were distributed only after consultation with
the Provincial Departments of Health.
They are-designed to contribute to
the superb effort the Canadian people
are making to reduce tbeir Th fanI.
���and maternal morality rate and to
improve the whole average of infant
health across the Dominion by carrying pre-natal advice and information
to the expectant mother in'the home.
A letter Lo the Provincial Department of Health of your own province
or to the Canadian Council on Child
Welfare, Plaza Building, Ottawa, will
bring the letter service free.
Six feet of highgrade silver ore
which is expected to run well up to
$500 to the Ion has-just been uncovered in a new strike made in the Rob
Roy claim of the Sally group on Wallace Mountain and the Beaverdell
camp is bubbling with optimism.
Last August the Gugginheims took
an option for $500,000 on Llie Sally
group from the Wallace Mines Limited and carried on some development
work for about* six * months.' After
shipping several cars of ore they
threw up their option libo'iit three
months ago. This liad the general
effect of a black eye on the Beaverdell camp, although Duncan Mcintosh
continued to roll up substant.iiil dividends on an adjoining property. 13.
Nordman and his three sons, tlio
principal owners, were disappointed
at the action of the Federal interests
but gritted their teeth and started
exploratory work more.*. determined
than ever and are being warmly congratulated on what is generally regarded as the biggest find which has
been made on the Sally group, although a shipper,,for 20 years.
The Rob Roy claim, on.which the'
strike was made, lies between the
Sally and the Bell, , Duncan .Mcintosh's famous tennis court, shipper.
If. was found as a result of tlie development, scheme outlined by the
Nordmans and which had not been
followed by the Federal people.���

No Wonder Canadians are Handsome
Canadian men and women owe then good looks and
beauty to their-country, says Pen Chtihg Fann,
of Shanghai, alias Paul C. Fann, of Montreal, who
believes that environment ��� is the chief factor in the
evolution of the ���human.-'species:..,.On-the whole, this
yourfg;;Chinese philosopher thinks, Canadians considered collectivelyn are much better than the Chinese
because, of their association with more beautiful surroundings.
"This is a very old theory," said. Mr. .Fann in a
recent'interview, "and a v-ary well-founded one." He
pointed out the fact that-the inhabitants of the vast
barren areas of China were an ugly people, while a
native of the Province of Kiangsu, the most fertile
and beautiful of Chinese provinces, could be recognized anywhere for their great beauty.
"Make your country beautiful,-and the rest will
take care of itself."���that, is Mr. Fann's recipe for
good looks. Canadians, he says, have carried out this
theory unconsciously with the result that their country
has not only great natural beauty, but many fine
cities, and thousands of acres of beautiful farm land.
The Capadian Pacific Railway, with which Mr. Fann
has been associated for the past two and a half years
lias played a great part in beautifying Canada he
says, as well as assisting in the country's development
in many other ways.
Paul C. Fann, as he is known-in Montreal is a
graduate;of Chinese universities, the son of a Mandarin, and just 26 years old. For two ami a half
years,; und��r_ an "'arrangement between,, the Governments of China and Canada, he has been making a
study of the. Canadian.Pacific Railway System with
the idea of acquiring practical knowledge that he
hopes to apply to the railroad problems of his own
country. He and several other young Chinese students arrived in Montreal in December 1923, and since
his stay in Montreal, Mr. Fann has-been employed in
the Angus shops and various departments of the
Railway in Windsor Street Station, Montreal. He'
has also been a student at McGill university, where
he took an M.Sc. degree, and is at present vvorkine
for the degree of M.A., which he hopes to receive in
the Fall, before returning to;China in October. Mr.'
Fann leaves the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
at the end of this month and will travel through
Canada during the summer. The building in the
photograph is.the Windsor Street Station. Montreal,
where Mr. Fann received most of his Canadian Pacific
railway traininir.
