Drilling Has Started
At Providence Mine
Drilling commenced in the Dermody
shaft at the Providence mine, Greenwood, the first-of-the-week. It is the
intention of Messrs. Wilson and Loomis,
the leasers, to continue the shaft, following the lead, to the 500-foot level.
The lead is high grade and samples
given to the writer are literally covered
with native silver.    -
Messrs. Wilson and Loomis have installed a very economical plant to carry
on operations. A Gardner - Denver
compressor, delivering 278 cubic feet of
free air per minute, was put in place
during the week-end. This machine is
manufactured by the Gardner-Denver
Company (Canada) Ltd. The size is
9x6xH and is a Duplex Vertical
mounted on sub base with direct connection to 40 H. P. motor through
Gardner-Denver flexible coupling. It
is the first of its kind installed in this
district. By all indications it is -an
excellent machine and is the centre of
interest to all mining men who have
watched its operation. J. D. Lynch of
Vancouver, and J. F. Gamble of Nelson,
representing the Gardner-Denver Co.
put finishing 1 ouches to setting the
compressor before air was used for
A Sampson hoist, with a 30 H. P.
motor, is used to handle the bucket in
the shaft.
The re-opening of this well known
property will greatly help to stimulate
mining in this section.

Midway, B.C., March 4-28.
A. Lander, Esq.,
Secretary Fanner's Institute,
Midway, B.C.
Dear Sir:.
The Farmer's Institute held a
most snappy meeting last Saturday.
There was a good attendance and many
subjects were discussed. It- was an
outstanding fact that all had something to say on the-various subjects.
,' The principle subjects under discussion were the purchase of "Mollasses^
arid-"PigiClubs"rand"inTthis"there was
an able address by Mr. Bruce on the
subject of the .use of straw for little
and big pigs, and his advice was to use
lots of straw. P. C. Black, of Grand
Forks, who was present, replied . to
many questions on this subject.
The subject of dynamite was taken
up by Mr. Norris and several matters
relative to the welfare of the farmers
wero discussed.
The ladies were then invited to attend an interesting talk on the subject
of "Pigs and Pig Raising, for Profit and
for Prizes" by Mr. Black. The address
was listened, with great interest and
the concern shown in this subject
is an indication of the fact that the
farmer's recognize that it is a good
thing and are giving it their attention.
The matter of Pure Bred Milk Stock
was discussed and I think it is generally conceeded that something along
the lines of improving the strain _ of
Milk Cattle in this district must "be
done. It was pointed out that the
dairying industry is coming out in
prominence very fast and it is expected
that this will be a thriving milk and
cream producing center, having its own
creameries run upon the community
basis, similar to the Oregon system,
which has proven so remunerative to
the farmer.
Thc subject of a general "Market
Day" is also in the air and it is hoped
that very soon there will be a concerted
movement to establish "A Market Day"
along the lines of the New Westminster
"Market Day" which has done so much
for that town. Why not? Why should
our people buy direct from the farmer?
We hope that the Farmers will turn
out in even greater numbers at the
next meeting and lend a real kick to
the Institute and incidently a boost for

time was spent in playing games and"

Canada s  Future
Canadians should take a big view of their country and Its future. There
should be nothing narrow nor small in their conception of the Dominion
present or future, but rather our vision should be broad, large and courageous. The individual man who persists in looking out on life through blue
spectacles, who can never see any possibility of success ahead because of
obstacles in the path, v.no is forever contrasting his inferior position wiih
that of a more successful neighbor, will be a failure. And what-is true of tbo
Individual is equally truc of a nation.
The habit indulged in by some Canadians, both in public and private life,
of comparing Canada with its sixty years of history as a confederated unit
with the United States with its 150 years of union, and Canada with its ten
millions of people with tho. more than one hundred and ten millions in the
United States, is just ab absurd as it would be for a merchant established
one year m business and with five employees to complain that his business
turn-over was not equal to that of another merchant with a business of
many years' standing and a staff of employees tea times as large. Yet many
people persist in comparing Canada of today with the United State of today,
Instead of comparing Canada with the United States when that country was
of the same age or had approximately- the same population.
Comparing Canada with the present United States gives the latter the
advantage, but the advantage is all with Canada when it. Is compared with
'the United States at the same age or with an.equal population. Even making
full and ample allowance for changed conditions resulting from science and
inventions, discoveries and advancements of all kinds, the contrast is decidedly and greatly in Canada's favor.
For example, it was not until the United States had a population of
seventy-five millions of people that its trade reached the figure'..which-.Canada now enjoys With ten millions of population.' 'When*.tlie United States.had
a population only equal to that of Canada today, it-did not cut much of a
world figure; it was not a leader in any department of world production or
commerce; rather it was engaged in the pioneer task of its own domestic
development, and it would have been just as reasonable to decry the United
States and its future.then-because'it did not measure up to the older countries of Europe, as it is now to decry Canada and its future because it has
not already attained to the stature of the United States.
Young in years and small in population, Canada is today a real factor in
world affairs. It has outstripped the United States and all other countries in
the manufacture of paper, it has become'the world's greatest exporter of
wheat, it is the chief source of the world's supply of nickel and asbestos,
year by year it is overtaking the United States in the production of gold and
is not now 'far behind. For some years past employment has been as general
as in the United States, and in the last two years has been even belter. Canada today finances itself to an extent the United States was not able to do
���'until it was many times our size.
Nowhere else in the world are there two nations living side by side,
speaking the.same language,-with the same monetary system, and having
similar customs and ideals. Yet there are people who profess surprise that
there is a constant exchange of population across our international boundary
line, and that the larger and more powerful magnet of the United States
should attract the greater number. It would be-against all reason and nature if it were not so. .'.Yet. we make bold to predict that the day is not far
distant when Canada will prove the more powerful magnet of the two, and
population will flow from the United States into Canada in a greater and
���more steady stream ihan has ever flowed southward. ' ,:
Paradoxically, many of-the- very people who deplore any exodus of
Canadians to the United States, at the same time object to United States
people and capital coming to Canada because of a fear that Canada will thus
become Americanized. Others object to Canadian capital being invested in
the United States or other countries, claiming it should be kept at home for
investment and development purposes.
Canadianism," expressive ot an inability to stand on one's own,feet ' It is an
attitude which, were it at all general, would inevitably drive the self-reliant,
forward-looking youth of Canada out of the country. Sucli people would do
well to throw away their blue spectacles, and realize that Canada is on the
map of the progressive-nations, of.the world to stay. They should become inculcated with the considered opinion of the Prince of Wales who recently
declared: " Canada is on the threshold of one of the most astonishing eras of
expansion and development ever seen. Exactly how long that will take none
*of us knew, but certainly it will occur in the lifetime of many of us."
Mainy Are Planning To Revisit Native Lands On lho Baltic Sea
Rev. Oscar Gunnerfelt, of Winnipeg, is organizing a special midsummer excursion to Sweden, Norway,
Denmark and Finland, which is to
leave Winnipeg about May 14, by
Canadian National Railways, and will
sail from New York May 21, on the
S.S. Drottingholm. Already quite a
number of applications have been received for reservations, and it is expected that a largo party from Western Canada and Minnesota and North
Dakota will take advantage of this
opportunity of revisiting their nativo
lands on the Baltic sea.

Rw Troubles
due to Aeia
What most people call indigestion is
usually excess acid in the stomach.
The food has soured.'The'instant rem-
.edy is an alkali which neutralizes
acids. But don't use crude helps. Use
what your doctor would advise.
The best help is Phillips', Milk of
Magnesia. For the 50 years since its
Invention it has remained standard
with physicians. You will find nothing,
else bo quick in its effect, so harmless,
so efficient !
One tasteless spoonful In water neutralizes many times its volume in
acid. The results are immediate, with
no bad after-effects. Once you learn
this fact, you will never deal with
excess acid in the crude ways. Go
learn���now���why this method Is supreme.
Be sure to get the genuine Phillips'
Milk of Magnesia prescribed by physicians for 50 years in correcting excess acids. .Each bottle contains full

Secrecy Over Radio
Now Method Has Been Tested and
Found Satisfactory
Secrecy in voice transmission by
radio was successfully demonstrated
by the use of a combination of high
and low frequency transformers to
distort human speech ancl jumble it
to make It unintelligible to the human
The feat was accomplished in a
demonstration before a group of engineers, scientists and business men
at the City Club, by Sergius P. Grace,
general commercial engineer of the
Bell Telephone laboratories.
An electric translating "brain,"
wliich picked up the intentionally intermingled high and low frequencies,
rearranged them in their proper
places, modulated them and sent
them through loud speakers in proper relation, did the trick, and convinced the audience that secret voice
transmission by this method is a
scientific fact.
Practical application of the device,
it was pointed out, would protect the
transatlantic long distance radio telephone service from the ears of all except those for whom it is intended.
At present the messages are transmitted on a wave length so low tliat
few stations have apparatus which
can be tuned to pick it up, but the
new device will assure secrecy under
all conditions.

years old she was so weak and thin
that we feared we would lose her.
She was very nervous, and going to
school seemed too much for her.
Often she would have to stay at home
for days at a time. At times she
would have a very, high fever, and
the doctor's treatment did not help
her. I tried several' remedies, but with
no good results. One day a frlond advised me to give her Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and I did so. It was not
very long after she began taking the
pills that I could see a change for the
better. She kept on taking the pills
for several months, and through them
grew into a strong healthy girl. Since
then, if a tonic has been needed at
any time, it has always been Dr.
Williams' Pink. Pills."
The pills are sold by all medicine

Northern Saskatchewan
Provincial Government Is Planning
To Aid Mineral Prospectors
The new department of industries
of the Saskatchewan Government is
planning to aid mineral prospectors
in the northern sections of-the province. In conjunction with the Dominion Government, aerial surveys will
be continued, and it is hoped that the
whole north-eastern mineral area
will have been surveyed and reduced
to geographical maps by the end of
next year. Thc department is getting
itself in the position whereby it can
be of every assistance to the prospector and investor. At the present time
there is very little accurate information of Saskatchewan northern mineral areas. Recognizing that great
development can be looked for both
In these areas and the western mining areas of Northern Manitoba, the
provincial department is speeding up
aerial mapping of the territory as
well as the plans for its own provincial activities in the coming season.
The minister states it is the intention
of his department to place its facilities at the disposal of the prospector
and the investor. " The minor will be
given every possible assistance," said
Mr. Spence, "at no cost to himself to
develop his proposition. We will assist him through our experts at the
university and do everything possible to place him in the position of developing any proposition which appears to have evidence of successful
working out. ��� To the capitalist the
department will be prepared5 to offer
to assist in developing water powers
and coal fields and to co-operate in
every way."

Invention Of Ship's Carpenter Said
To Be Unsinkable
A ship's carpenter, after 60 years
at his trade, has invented a new lifeboat of��a very curious kind.
It is practically two broad, shallow
boats Axed bottom to bottom, so that
as ope.half Is capsized the other half
is righted. It is said, however, to be
practically impossible to capsize it,
still more to sink it. In the double
bottom are valves which will let the
water out but will not let it in whichever way up the boat Is; and there
are tanks for fresh water and food
which can be reached whichever side
of the boat may be uppermost.

Birds Make Wonderful Flight
Lapwings Complete Non-Stop Flight
Across Atlantic In December
An astounding non-stop performance by hundreds of lapwings that
flew the 2,000 odd miles from England to Newfoundland in December
gales has just become known. The
flight is easily the most wonderful of
any recorded in bird life. The lapwing
is knojivn in the north of England and
Scotland as the "peewit," and its eggs
are sold in London as ."plover" eggs.
It is not the first time1 that a lapwing has crossed the Atlantic, but
never before have hundreds crossed
together. Stragglers get across by
unknown means, but a flock would
have to make a non-stop flight. To
realize the immensity of their performance it must be understood that
only hunger would drive them trom
this country. Therefore they must
have begun their flight in a semi-
starved condition. For part of the-
way they would be assisted by having the gale behind them, but it was
impossible for them to have ,such a
gale all the way. In the last stages
of their marathon flight they must
have fought against heavy; odds.

Resorted To Common Practice
Used Bread and Mercury To Locate
Body Of Drowned Girl
In setting afloat a loaf of. bread
weighted with mercury in the hope
of recovering the body qf a drowned
girl, the people' of   Pentwyn   Mawr
have resorted  to what was once  a
common practice in such cases.     In
1767 the decorous pages of "The Gentleman's Magazine " recorded the use
of bread and mercury in recovering
a.child drowned in the Kennct, when
it was alleged that the loaf sank at
the exact spot where the body - lay.
The  same  experiment was  tried  in
January, J 872, when a lad fell into a
mill stream at Sherborne. But it did
not succeed, and failure attended another attempt of the kind at Swinton,
near Sheffield, in 1878. In'December.
18S5, however, after a long and futile
search for a young man who had fallen into a flooded river near Stamford, a loaf was set afloat and came
to a standstill according to a circumstantial account in  a' local journal,
near tlie place, where a trawl afterwards brought up . the   body.    Only
some five years ago the practice was
resorted, to at Ames bury, but without
avail.' Folkv in other countries cling
to the same strange belief.
Story Of Old Battle Revealed
Investigators Find Mummified Bodies
Of Egyptian Soldiers
The story of a battle oh the River
Nile 4,000 years ago as revealed by
the mummified bodies of GO soldiers,
found buried in a royal Theban, tomb,
is told in a bulletin of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Dr. H. E. VVinlock, associate curator of Egyptian art at the Museum,
reconstructs the battle from reports
of the wounds found on the mummies
by the Museum's Egyptian expedition.
From tho small head. wounds and
the downward course of arrows found
in the bodies, Dr. Winlock says thc
men must have died storming a castle, the head wounds having evidently
been caused by small missiles thrown
from above.; They. were soldiers of
King Menthuhotep and the unusual
honor paid them of burial in a royal
tomb leads to the conclusion they fell
in an important engagement.
Other wounds on the bodies, the
article says, shows that the wounded
were dispatched with clubs by the
victors, after their comrades had retreated. Another attack, however,
must have been successful as the
bodies were recovered for burial;
The tomb in which the bodies were
found was -first discovered  in 1923,
but because of the disorder showing
the previous visits of thieves it was
sealed and not opened until recently.
Meanwhile, the    expedition   devoted
itself .to more promising excavations.
When the tomb was reopened marks
on the linen "of the soldiers showed
their period to be -that of 2,doO B.C.',
an important-find as excavators had
previously failed to'   discover   what
manner of men were the invaders who
descended on Egypt from Thebes, in
2,000 B.C., conquered Memphis    and
started the second great   period   of
Egyptian culture.

Liverpool's Roll.Of Honor
Will Contain Names Of -10,000 Heroes
Of Great War
It has taken over eight years to
complete the Roll of Honor which is
���to be placed in Liverpool Cathedral.
It contains the names of 40,000 Liverpool men who lost their lives in'the
war. The volume, probably the largest of its kind in the world, consists
of over 400 pages of vellum. The
frontpiece was'autographed by the
King, and each page is illuminated in
gold and color. The book is to be
bound in'white- vellum;- and* when
complete will be placed on the Cenotaph in the northeastern transept of
the Cathedral.
In addition to the Roll of Honor,
there is a smaller book, which will
form part of the same memorial.
This was completed about three years
ago. In it are recorded the names of
all who subscribed to the memorial,
together with the names of those to
whose memory the donations were
given. This book will take the place
of private memorials in the cathedral.
Expectation  That  Mine Will  Bo  a
Steady Producer By Fall Of
Steady production . of copper, zinc
and gold at thc Flin Flon mine may
be expected by the fall of 1930, if all
plans work out.as expected, according to R. E. Phelan, vice-president in
charge of operations of Flin Flon
Mines, Ltd. By that date he estimates
that $10,000,000 will have been spent
on the mining plant' and smelter
The capacity of the mill and concentrator will be'3,000 tons daily, and
tlie smelter will be large enough to
handle thc product of this plant, Mr.'
Phelan said. This will' mean steady
employment for; 1,000 or 1,200 men.
The town which.will spring;up round
the mill will have about 6,000 inhabit
itants, he estimated.
While the final decision regarding
the location of the town site has not
been made,- Mr. Phelan was able to
"say definitely that it would be in
Manitoba. The mine itself straddles
the Saskatchewan-Manitoba boundary.
By the end of the winter of 1928,
Mr. Phelan said, it was expected the
railroad would be put in such shap'e
that cement and structural steel
could be run by, rail right to the
mine, while by the end of the summer of 1929, he predicted that a permanent roadbed-would be laid down
and all year round railway-transportation possible to and from Flin Flon
and The Pas. In that year, he said,
the heavy plant and machinery would
be shipped in, and the final construction and installation of the plant and
smelter would be made.   .,'.

Victoria, March 14th.���With the work
of the legislature practically completed,
one thing stands out conspiciously���the
Liberal government, despite the loss by
death of'the late Premier Oliver and
the late Hon. William Sloan, minister
of mines, has been able to meet without difficulty the opposition forces of
the house ancl to emerge with greatly
increased strength.
With a general election coming within a few months at most, Premier
MacLean finds himself in a strongly
fortified position. While taxes have not
been reduced drastically, nevertheless
tlio individual taxpayer has been given
further relief. Capital finds . itself
adequately protected in this province.
Thc workingman gets a "run for his
money" ancl social legislation is farther
advanced than elsewhere in the
British Columbia credit stands higher
than that of any other province. Prosperity in general is 'being experienced,
and while all the credit certainly cannot be claimed by the government, still
a fair measure of credit is due the
MacLean administration for laying a
foundation of government which has
enabled British Columbia to set forth
upon era of general development ,>vhich
is rapidly carrying her into the forefront of progressive countries.

The patron saint of Ireland, whose
memory will be honored on Saturday.
March 17th, wherever there are Irishmen, possesses an advantage over two
of his seniors in saintship in that he
lived and worked in the country with
Which his name is indelibly associated.
This cannot be said of St. Andrew 01-
St.'George ."for'the-probability is that
the former never heard of Scotland
nor the latter of England. Of the
three, St Patrick is the real, active and
dominant figure and the one of whom
there is an actual ���' historical record
extant- That record, as to dates and
places, has been a subject of much
controversy but there are certain outstanding events of his life about which
there,is little if anydoubt. He was
born in Scotland or. in England (the
place-is disputed) either in 373 or sixteen years later; in early youth he was
a serf and swineherd in Ireland; in
432, after studies and wanderings in
Europe, he was ordained Bishop;
probably by Germarius at Auxerre, and
set out on his return to Ireland.
St. Patrick speedily made his mark
on the religious life of the country of
his choice but never forgot that he
��� dwelt in that country "among barbarians* a proselyte and an exile on
account of the. love of God." His personal confession of faith has come
down the' ages and is remarkable because of the absence of dogma and the
devotion to the person of Christ. His
breastplate, of Christianity was inscribed as it. were with the words
which he uses in his Lorica: "Christ
with me, Christ_before me, Christ behind me, Christ;within1 me, Christ in
the heart of every man who thinks of
'me,.Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks to me, Christ in the eye of
every man; who * sees me, Christ in the
ear of every man that hears me."
Pride in his mission���the greatest of
- all, missionaries who ever went to
Ireland���was an outstanding characteristic of man who was subsequently
to ear; the title of saint, even if never.
-"canonized.' '."...'.       : ~ ������
St. Patrick's work in Ireland was a
great one though the historical records
are not clear about either his powers of
conversion or the difficulties or dangers
that he encountered. He went there
at a time when there were Christian
Churches in existence but there were,
as well, Pagans and Druids, and it is
probably because of his fights with
these that he prayed so fervently to be
protected against: "hostile, merciless
powers; against the incantations of
false prophets; "against the black laws
of paganism; against' the spells of
women and smiths and Druids; against
all knowedge that is forbidden to man."
He did not succeed in destroying, the
religion of the Druids; because to some
extent they existed in Ireland a century after St. Patrick's death, but he
organized" the Church in a manner
which'enabled its religion to triumph
ultimately over that of other creeds';
It is now well on to fifteen centuries
since St. Patrick's death, yet his
memory is as fragrant and green as
the Shamrock, which legend says he
first planted1 in the Emerald Isle. It is
only a brief few years ago, on the
1462nd anniversary of his death, that
for the first time formal recognition
was given by the Imperial Parliament
to his memory with the unveiling of
his mosaic ih the central hall of the
Palace of Westminster. The mosaic,
now stands representing St. Patrick
between St. Columban and St. Bridget,
and it is a companion panel to those of
St. George, St. Andrew and St. David.
In response to an overwhelming
number of appeals from members of
the legislature, the provincial government has decided t'o cancel game
board protection from black bears and
big horned owls. The owls are blamed
for killing large numbers of game birds
is chicks, which the government
mends large sums annually to pro-
oage. The bears are condemned as
lamb and salmon killers.
(Experimentals Farms Note)
Green manuring is the practice of
ploughing down a green crop or its
aftermath. Its main object is to add
organic matter to the soil and, secondarily, when the crop ploughed down if
a legume, to increase the nitrogen.
The addition of organic matter which
ultimately becomes hiimu's improves
the water-holding capacity of the soil
and tends to bring about a'better condition of tilth. A third main object in
ploughing down a green crop is to add
to the soil, food for its bacterial life
which plays such an important part in
the preparation of. plant food e.g.-nitrification. Incidentally small amounts
of lime, phosphoric acid and potash
will be liberated in the decomposition
of the organic matter. t The importance of green-manurmg therefore
nhemically, physically, and biologically,
will be obvious.
A legume, such as clover makes the
most valuable crop to turn under as a
'green manure. It has been found by
experiments conducted by the Experimental Farms systems that the turning
down of clover increases the subsequent crop yields, for several years. It
has been estimated that it is possible;
by turning under a vigorous crop of
clover to add to the soil from 100 to
150 pounds per acre of nitrogen one-

Agriculture College for preliminary
training in farm work.
Calgary.���Two commercial air-
" plane transport- projects are being
developed. in Calgary. One calls
for the use of airplanes carrying
twelve persons each, to be used principally for passenger, freight and
mail traffic between Calgary and
Edmonton; the other calls for lighter
machines, two or three passengers,
for Calgary-Edmonton and mountain
flight purposes.

All previous records in connection
with the wesbbound movement of
. grain to Vancouver over Canadian
Pacific Railway lines were broken
during- the first two weeks in January, according- to E. Cptterell, superintendent of transportation, western lines of the company? Deliveries at Vancouver by the Canadian
Pacific during the fortnight in question totalled approximately 22,500,-
000 bushels of grain.
Calgary.���Farm land values in
Southern Alberta'are tending to become firm as the result of the series
of good crops, and more inquiries for
farm acreage have 'been received in
the last few months, according to
real estate men, than in any similar
period in the past five or six years.
Farms offered for sale last spring
at $15 per acre and- bring-iiig no offers are1 selling now for from ��20 to

>, Sale of game hides is illegal in this
province, it ^was: held by His Honor
Judge Young of Smithers, when in
county court a resident was fined for
selling the hide of a mountain goat,
killed, legally. It has been the custom
in most-parts of the province to sell
the hides of ���bear, goats and other big
game animals, and the ruling is both
interesting and startling.
