 ' Britain Forges Ahead
>    _ ���  ���
'Those prophets of gloom who have been predicting ido rapid incline
of British'power aud prestige throughout thc world, and those with vhem
thc "wish for such a unastropht, has been the father of tlie thought, inns';
surely bc beginning to realize that tliey will have to revise '.ncir opinion,', nnd,
recall thoir .predictions. For evidence accumulates, and fact is foeiii�� piled
upon fact, which go to domonstrate the virility, prestige nnd power of tbe
' Old Land and tlie Empire as a whole.
Notwithstanding tht fact that Germany was particularly biiUv against
Britain for entering Lhc world war, and sung its hymn of hate because it
realized that tlie British entry into the conflict1 spelled defeat for Germany,
it is a fact today that a more friendly feeling exists in Germany towards
Britain than is entertained for any other nation which was allied aghast
For a tine Uie anti-foreign feeling in China was interpreted as being
largely"an'anti-British feezing, for the' cultivation of which Sovijt Russia waa
largely responsible. But the inevitable reaction has now set in :iy ihe true
designs of R'issia and the true nature of British policy is becoming disclosed
and. understood.
ALlhe meeting of tho Institute bf Pacific Relations held ac Honolulu last
July, Sir Frederick Wuyte, chief unofficial spokesman for threat Biitair,
presented a-memorandum on the history of.. Anglo-Chinese relations irom
the ..time'.of Lord Afacaru'ey'c mission in-1783 down to the famous commimt-
. cation of Sir Austen Chamber lain of a year ago. This memorandum dfalt
fairly with the mistakes made by both nations, and it demonstrated from
the, past acts.of Great Britain that Uie conciliatory attitude of Sir Austen
Chamberlain'", document was the logical outcome of those acts.
It is interesting lo recall at this time, when the Nationalists of Ohnla
.ire breaking off -diplomatic relations with Soviet Russia, Uie manner in
which Sir Frederick Whyle's memorandum was received by ths Chinese.Nationalist delegates at thc Honolulu meeting. These delegates had distributed
in advance a'printed case against Great Britain, which was replete with
sharp strictures on Britiuh foreign policy. But when Sir Frederick presented
the other side, so impressed were the Chinese-'delegates by its fairness and
by Lhc British point of view that they withdrew tlicir own document and
asked for.the return of the copies distributed. This is hardly a sign of British
.decadence in world affairs, or an evidence of loss of prestige. The fact that
_nnti=British~fcehng""in-"Chii:a-is-��r^u^ result"      =    r_^"
Surely and steadily Great Britain is regaining- her position a:i thc fiunn-
. cial centre of the world. The pound sterling has returned to par, even m
New York, and Uie flow of gold, which has been almost continuous to the
United States for somc year?- past, hag.recantly'had an offset in the'first frold
sh'pinont from New York to London. Great Britain continues promptly on due
date to make her enormous payments to Uie .United States on account of war
obligations, and with every payment, made her position becomes stronger.'    ���
British financial institutions and industrial concerns are more and more
regaining their position in world markets, and whereas during tho war British investments and securities in"foreign kinds and in the overseas Dominions had to be withdrawn in order to carry on the grim struggle, British investors arc again active thioughout the world.   .
As carriers cf the commerce of the world, and the great commercial
clearing house for all nations, Britain remains supreme. Tn chip building,
despite all the efforts of other nations, Britain retains the ioadaTshio by a
wide margin. ���������.'���.,.���.���
And to this general improvement in position thc overseas Dominions of
thc Empire, led by Canada, are contributing an ever increasing share.
Titled Taxi Drivers
Many  Russian  Nobility  Aro Chauffeurs In Paris
There was a time when the Paris
taxi drivers were simply bachelors of
art and 'candidates in philosophy.
This has all changed. Thcy are now
Counts,- Dukes, Marquises, Colonels
and Generals. The -Russians have
aristocratized them. But tliere are
also many genuine, Russians among
them. They may be picked out by
their gracious manners, thcir broad
smiles, their ignorance of the city
map, aud I believe they swear by St.
Anastasia instead of a real Gallic
Saint. Indignant Vox Populists have
written tc^, the papers recently that
these Russian ex-Grand Dukes and
Caucasian Hetmans arc not only ignorant of the Paris labyrinth, but that
they refuse to learn their geography.
One lady reports that the driver took
her for a long-ride, altogether out of
the direction of tho address she had
given, and persisted in looking around
at his charge with a broad smile. As
he kept up n brisk pace and a brisk
pace in Paris means something shc
did not venture to jump out. Finally
Lhey wero halted by a signal at a
crossing. The lady called a gendarme,
"What do you mean?" asked the latter of the chauffeur. "Don't you know
the streets?" "Sir," replied the ex-
Colonol or ex-General, "your Commander-in-Chief has never sent mc
the plans. How can I advance without maps?" A phrase reminiscent of
Lhe Russian fronL, perhaps.

Better Uaiullihff" Of Cream WoiiM
Reduce Louses
Saskatchewan farmers lost considerably more than ?50,000 during tho
year ended October 81. a3 a result of
cream being graded-down, for various
causes, according to Percy B. Reed,
dairy, commissioner for Saskatchewan, broadcasting a lecture under
the auspices of tlie Saskatchewan
Farmcr_Radio_Farm_Sc_.ioor.^ ^
Better handling methods would
have saved a good-deal of tins Joss,
Ur. Reed declared. During the period
under review tliere. were 83,093 cans
of cream graded No. 2 or "off", because of. high acidity or the presence
of other undesirable foreign flavors.
This, however, only provided for ]3.5
per cent, of thc total output, the remaining 8G.5 percent, grading No. 1
or better.
Of the total amount graded down
15.G per cent., or 12,044 cans, was put
clown because of bad ilavors in .the
cream and French weed, or stink
weed as it is more popularly known,
was largely responsible for this.

believes ��� that \he evidence he has obtained justifies him in accepting the
"solitary" view. This is a matter of
some importance because If it be true
that a second cancer cannot easily
grow in a body in which a cancer is
already established, then presumptive
evidence exists thai Uie body docs
make an attempt to rid itself of cancer, and hope is engendered of being
able somc day to mako uso of this natural healing power.

The Wonder Of Dry Ice
New Troduct Evaporates'Slowly and
Leaves No Liquid
ln a recent electrical exposition in
New York, a castle was shown" made
of dry ice. One of the.wonders of the
new product is that it does not leave
any liquid a3 it. slowly evaporates. It
is solid carbon dioxide which has been
frozen to a temperature of 109 degrees below zero. ,
Thc principal use of dry ice is for
the refrigeration of perishable food3
in transit. This may be a pint of ice
cream which tlie houscw/fe is carrying homc from the store, or a refrigerator car of fruit speeding from thc
west coast of Ontario.
To carry, home the ice cream, the
pint ..package of the cream is placed
in a slightly larger paper, package
which permits a piece of dry ice to lie
against the package,of cream. On
arriving home the housewife can
leave the package of cream standing
on a table for six hours because thc
dry ice lasts, that long.
Next summer on those hot days you
can carry a piece - around inx your
pocket .and keep cool. '.
itTibet Closed To Foreigners
People Are Angry Over Statements
Made By^ Explorer
. The secretary of the Royal Geographical Society is unable .to confirm the statement made by Captain
Odell in New York that a new expedition to climb Mpunt Everest was .'being.' organized, j Captain:.. Odell was[ a
member of the'-.���'society's 1924 .expedition. 7 ���'.;.���..'x-iy-iiiXy'. -w* .w**;*
The India Office states that the next
expedition to Mount Everest will not
be made for some time, owing to the
anger of thc Tibetah3 at statements
made by an explorer following his return from a secret trip to Tibet. This
explorer is said to have exhibited on
European lecture platform two Tibetan road menders as priests of the
palai Lama, ruler of Tibet., When
these statements drifted back to Tibet
the Lama was so enraged that he refused to permit any more foreigners
to visit the country. Under an agreement with the British officials in India foreigners are' kept back from the
gateway to Tibet by the British'.'
. The latest explorer is said to have
broken his word to the British, causing tho Lama to lose confidence-- in
tiiem and to deny entrance to all foreigners'
At that time the British Government was negotiating with the Lama
in behalf of the. Royal Geographical
Society which desires to continue the
exploration of Mount Everest.' The
society was forced,to postpone the expedition, but when the Lama again
decides to receive visitors to his mysterious country, theywill probably be
the first guests.   ..,.-,
��� The India Office said no negotiations were being carried out at present, U)ut it received an inquiry some
time ago from 'a German explorer
connected with the Berliner Tage-

It certainly was cold in the Valley
last week. Thursday's thermometer
registered 35 below zero; Friday 40
below. In comparison to Prince George

dollars to one dollar a year, thcy promised not a single feature of the paper
would be eliminated, but new features
would be added, and the paper made
more valuable than ever.   It is frankly
admitted by their million readers that
their promise has been more than fulfilled, and to-day the Family Herald
and Weekly Star,at one dollar a year
is the marvel of the newspaper world.
No home in Canada would regret this
investment.   Just think of a great big
72 page publication at less than two
cents per week, and every page of it
alone worth the money.   No wonder
the Family Herald and Weekly Star
has over a million readers.   It deserves
them all, and more too.
