Siiver Miners Get
"Dolled Up" for. Film
There was much tittering from
the onlookers as several hundred
miners in the silver mines of
Idaho's Coeur d'Alenes appeared
at work some time ago "all dolled
up" in grease paint, rouged ' lips
and penciled eyebrows. But it
meant real money to them because they were to work for the
movies in the filming of "Frivolous Sal." And so they went
grimly before the cameras, wielding pick, shovel and electric drill
regardless of the jibes hurled at
them by friends on the sidelines.
The scene provides an interesting
sidelight as to how silver is mined,
as'well as a step to the climax of
this thrilling picture of early mining camp life. Eugene O'Brien,

gunip together for their activities, whether in play or vork; that tho "gang"
flii'it prevails. And almost without exception Iheso boys individually havo
sove hobby which io rhcni is of absorbing interest and arouses their enlhu-
bi.i��ii), although to others it may appear quite unimportant, even futile.
it is part of Hie Boy Seoul programme to encourage boys to adopt some
hobby thai is 7eally worthwhile, one ihat appeal to them, and to then help
them lo develop a liobbj i'o a point where it will prove of real value, to them
and to tlicir fellow men. Thus thu Hoy Scouts offer badges lor efficiency on
ihe part ot ils members for an almosl inconceivable number of things.
Life is lull of instances ot men and women who havo developed their
���hubbies to a poini where they became Lhe real passion and, business of their
live.-., resulting in important discoveries and inventions ami bringing untold
hlessings to ihe world, a.s well as fame and often fortune to the hobbyist.-
George. Eastman, the Kodak inventor and manufacturer, was a bank clerk
and, ptcparing tor a holiday 1rip. he decided to take picture'; of places visit-
tc\ to send home to his widowed mother. In those clays, half a century ago,
amateur photographers wero few in nuinber because the paraphanalia icquir-
cd was bulky mid crude and thu work of picture taking, developing and printing difficult. Eastman thoughi il could be simplified and in his spare timc
in hib mothers kitchen made photography his hobby. Tho result is well

Luther Gurbanu-'s hobb} was horticulture, and ho amazed tho world with
iiis achievements in the development ol new plants and flowers and in demon-
&t rating how they could be improved in size and beauty. Jack Minor, Thompson-Solon, and others have made the life and habits of birds their hobby,
-svith the result that mankind) litis learned how much we owe to the feathered folk, and how, without their help, deslmotive grubs, -worms aud insects
would soon play havoc with gaidetis, orchards ancl our food supplies. Another man. Johnston by name, within the past twelvo years has. as a hobby,
Stowu all kinds ol tiopical and sub-tropical trees and.'plants with thc result
that ho has proven that many tilings whicli ihe United States now imports

-"Many a boy lias a mechanical turn of mind which soon finds expression
in some form of hobby and which, if rightly directed, encouraged and developed, may point to tho occupation in which lie; may And the greatest enjoyment and success in life
But apart from hobbies of lid.-, character, it is well ihat the business and
professional man and woman should have a hobby. Jt should be something
distinctly different from that of their everyday occupation. Thus the professional and office man will find health, recreation and downright pleasure in
-devoting his spare time to the development of some hobby thai takes him
out doors and calls for ihe uso. of his hands rather than the concentration of
iu's mental faculties.
There is, fortunately, a growing realization nf tlie value of hobbies, although;, thcy are not always cltissiiluil as such. Servicf clubs in all cities are
more and more turning their activities in Ihe direction of helpful, Juimani-
���iarian service. Tims ,\vo lincl. these Club members making a real hobby out

jufftiirs and worries, even though thcy may not result iu adding anything very
worthwhile to the lives of others ancl tho advancement of the world.
The main thing is to liave a hobby. Parents should encotuagc their children in this ""direction and carefully retrain from ridiculing whal may seem
rather silly and purposeless to them. Sympathetic study of a child.\s hobbies
reay give a valuable indication of ihc direction wliich such child's training

In. several ways the climbing _of
Fryatt is unique. It was accomplished under severe handicaps, the hardest oi which was caused by the pall
of smoke lrom forest fires to the soutli.
This smoke practically blanketed Hie

It was found lhat cancer producing

which had been healed in manufacture

tuies which effect a change in the imbalances subjected tu them and endow
lliem with a mysterious cancer-producing power. -    ,.
So far, no light lias! been thrown on
tho nature of this change. Tliere
seems to be very little in the idea that

Tlie workers at tlie Cancer Hospital
believe thai they have,disposed of the
idea that The presence ot one cancer
protects against the growth of others.
They have not so far boon able to find
any support for thc virus theory of
cancer causation as'-propounded lasi

The Government of the
Province of British Columbia
Liquor-Control Plebiscites
Regulations, fixing the open
seasons* on game in British Columbia for the coming season, and
involving important changes in
the province's fur protection
policy, were announced last week.
While the open seasons for most
game animals follow closely those
of last year, the Game Board,
which prepared the new regulations, is embarking on far reaching changes in trapping rules.
All- fall trapping of water animals is prohibited, while on the
other hand, the big area south of
the .main line of the .Canadian
Pacific Railway is open for the
first time in hve years to spring
trapping of beaver and muskrat.
To restore these animals there, a
five year close season on trapping
has been in effect, and it has been
remarkably successful. As a result, the Game Board " believed
trapping can be allowed again
without fear of depleting the fur-
bearers seriously.
Explaining 7 the decision to
abolish fall trapping of water animals, M. B.Jackson, K.C., chair-
mail of the Game Conservation
Board, says that' this step is being taken both in the interests of
conservation and of. the trappers
themselves. "Fur taken in the
spring, he pointed.out, .-have a
value far greater than those taken
v in the autumn.
A summary of the open seasons
in this section (Eastern district)
is as follows: [yy
Mountain sheep, south of the
C.P.R. main  line, Sept.  15, to
Dec. 15. ; ;

over one hundred and fifty thousand
pounds of hops produced in British
Columbia.        '
IT requires over one hundred thousand dollars for
fuel, mined ln British Columbia, to produce tlio
Iteer consumed In this province. Many hundreds
of thousands of dollars aro paid by the Brewers
annually for materials such as bottles, cooperage,
croivnstoppcrs, labels and bottle wrappers���all of
which ��� are manufactured in Canada. . '
TIIE (axes paid by the Breweries to tho Government   amount   to   over  eight   hundred   and
