the surface at the 200-foot adit portal.

degrees above the 400 level, but dips*
about 65 degrees below". It is 10 to 12

Victoria.���The rapid increase in the
development of the mining industry of
the province with the importance, of
opening up' the mineral areas is recognized by the provincial government in
a new loan bill introduced in the legislature to authorize a loan of $9,500,000
for public works, etc., to be dealt with
this year.
In'* addition to grants already-provided for in current expenditures--the
sum of $100,000 is being set aside for
construction and permanent improvement of trails and bridges required to
provide access to more important mineral areas.
The mining development act provides
for government assistance on a fifty-
fifty basis tq any person having an undeveloped mineral claim or interest, but
this is not deemed to meet the situation
where a rich mineral area needs for its
proper develpinent the opening up of
proper access and where it would be
impossible to allocate fairly among the
various parties interested fifty per cent
of the cost entailed. In the estimate
there is .provision for expenditures by
the mines departmentof.$125,000 and a
like amount by public- works department for mining trail construction and
maintenance and thc one hundred
thousand mentioned above is in addition.
The necessity for this extra assistance was advanced by Hon. W. A.
McKenzie, minister of mines, who
urged upon the government the fact
that there are well-known mining areas
requiring to be connected with the pro-
vincial'highway system by properly located and constructed trails and it is
for this purpose the sum is being sel
aside.  __.,   v
" In every case such trails are needed
to open up a new area the minister of
mines, after full investigation, will report the necessity for the expenditure
to the minister of finance by whom the
outlays will, be authorised.' This decision will, to a considerable'extent,'ri*.eet
demands which have been daily growing as mining development proceeds.

on their way to school, He asked them
if they cared to ride, and for an answer
they piled into his Ford until it was so
completely filled that one little girl had
to sit in the driver's lap. She was a
plump little thing and the driver cuddled her close to keep her away from
the steering wheel. "Do you like
school?" he asked.
"Yes, sir," she lisped.
"Do you go every day?"
"I haven't missed a day this year,"
the little girl replied.
"Good little girl!" said the driver,
kissing her soft cheek. "Do you like

A discussion, of commercial and general interest has followed a lecture
given at Fulham by Richard Burbidge,
general manager of Harrods, London.
To an.audience of about 1,000 girls
who were, leaving school Mr. Burbidge
said that thousands of pounds were lost
eacli year by. large stores' solely on
account of bad handwriting. At Harrods they had to insist now on block
to avoid mistakes when these thousands of bills went to the cquritinghouse.
They also had to do nothing but check
up bad writers. He appealed to the
girls to take care of their writing. As
for business men, it is stated, the script
writing taught to the youngest children
in London's elementary, schools has few
supporters among them;'-. Their chief
argument is its slowness, though some
hold, too, that it is of no value as a
Apreparation :'for ordinary._ writing; The
main complaint, however, is'that handwriting of every sort is being neglected
in the schools. Even in elementary
schools, it is said, the copybook is no
longer used and the teaching of handwriting or * the insistence on good
"handwriting ceases in the upper standards. '  ���. -  ' "
The experience of the banks is like
that of the stores.   Half the boys from
: secondaryand public schools who.offer
themselves as candidates for service in
the Bank of England failin the preliminary handwriting" tests. The big
banks have hundreds of cheques daily
which need careful examination and
sometimes inquiry, and this trouble,
according to an official of the-Midland
Bank, who has given his views, has
grown since the war.
The 1929 edition of that popular
annual, "5,000 Facts About Canada",

7"Canadian author and publicist, is now

material that presents - the stirring
story of our' national progress iri crisp,

Nelson.���Home mission work was the
chief undertaking of the first day's session: of the Kootenay Presbytery of the
United;Church of Canada which opened
its sittings in St. Paul's Church here on
Tuesday morning, March 5th. Rev.
Bryce Wallace of Cranbrook presiding.
Eighteen pastors from variqus points
in the Boundary and Kootenay, together with eight laymen made up the
gathering. 7
That the mission churches of the
Kootenay Presbytery were in a better!
financial condition than last year was
shown in Rev. W. C. Mawhinney's report.* Rev. Mr. Mawhinney is convenor
of the home mission committee which
held .-special sessions on Monday with
Rev. S.' S. Osterhout, superintendent
of missions of the United Church in
British Columbia. The Presbytery has
granted the following sums of money to
mission churches m this district. Cres-.
ton $350 7 and an additional grant of
$100 for; pastor's travelling expenses;
Greenwood, $1200; Kimberley, $350 and
an additional grant of $100 for travelling expenses of missionary; Moyie,
$1100 and a loan.of $60Q to furnish the
parsonage; Proctor, $1200; Wardner,
$1200; East Trail, which is the newest
church in the Presbytery, $1100.
Rev." B. Wallace m an address, from
the chair spoke on the power of prayer.
If the work of the church was to progress then prayer would be the means
of this progress the chairman declared.
The resignation of Rev. E. L. Best of
Fernie* and Rev. J. Rogers of Slocan
City and Rev. W. Rickaby of Wardner
were received by the Presbytery.
Rev. Mr. Stevenson and Rev. Mr.
Evans applied for churches.
A vote of thanks to Rev. B. L. Oaten
of Trail for "the christian and unselfish manner in which he had helped
the baby church of the presbytery,"
was passed.
=Revf=Andrew-Walker -of- Greenwood
exhorted the members to be more generous in their donations to the ecclesiastical colleges of the United Church,
"for it is in these colleges that the
young pastors upon whom the future of
the church depends, are moulded into
real pastors," Rev. Mr. Walker declared.
At the final 'session on Wednesday
the Presbytery granted a gift of $500
and a loan of $1000 to the congregation
of Invermere, who wish to build a new
church. A Half of the money to be spent
on' this church will be raised by the
congregation. This grant was made by
the home mission board and it is subject to the decision of the conference
of the United Church which is to be
held in Vancouver in May.
The pastors of the Presbytery moved
a vote of sympathy to the citizens of
Rossland "who took the trials of their
recent sorrow so bravely."
The resignation -of Rev. C. A,
Campbell from his distant field of
Invermere was received by the presbytery. Rev. Mr. Campbell is the father
of the Presbytery and although advanced in years he came all the way
from Windermere to attend the Presbytery.
Rev. S. S, Osterhout, D. D., of Vancouver and superintendent of missions
of the United Church in this province
in .an interesting address told the
members of the Presbytery to beware
of "growing pains."
' That the United Church'was growing
in the Kootenays was a self evident
fact," the doctor declared. But he
warned the teachers of the gospel to
work harder and harder for the great
cause of Christ.
' That the churches of the Kootenays
had contributed $7500 to the mission
and maintenance fund, was shown in
Rev. F..R. G, Dredge's report. Although
this sum-was seven per cent, over allocation, , the pastor urged the members
to support this fund to a greater
degree. *. \
A retreat of the clergy will most
likely be held in July, Stress was. laid
in all the speeches of the session on the

In 1921 the Canadian Pacific paid
out $2,000,000 from freight revenue"
in loss and damage claims. In 1927
it paid-$700,000, a-decrease of
'$1,300,000, although in the same
period the"gross freight revenue ha'd'
increased by ��15,000,000. Better
freight handling did it.

Some idea of the world-wide -area
over  which  the ' Canadian  Pacific
-operates may.be gathered from the
fact tHat in making out its monthly
balance it is necessary to turn fifty-
nine different foreign currencies into
dollars in order to'get an accurate

West Has -Priceless Heritage
Saskatchewan might be termed
the epitome of Canada's Great
r West. No other Province has a more
interesting population, forlhe fabric
out of which that population has
been woven contains tlneads of
so many racial cultures. Of the
eight hundred and seven thousand
souls recorded in the census of 1926,
three-fourths are of British descent
with English and Sco'ts blood predominating. Over half a million
were born in Canada," and of these
a small but notable sprinkling are
of French-Canadian descent. Ninety-eight thousand were born in the
British Isles. Continental Europe
has added twenty-two racial strains
of which the larger groups may be
summarized as Slavonic (55,000),
Scandinavian (20,000), "Teutonic
(20,000) and Romance (14,000). The
aboriginal Indian population numbers about 13,000. - Each of these
racial groups can contribute something to Canadian art and music,
for each has its traditi&ns of handicraft and folksong, traditions whicli
represent an inherent
love for beautiful things
and a love of melody.
��� Folksong is iritimate-
,ly linked up with handi-
" craft,'for it is-to "the
" accompaniment of folk- s
song that the spinning
wheel turns ahd ' the -
beautiful homespun fabrics are woven. These
. fabrics can never be
duplicated by the factory-made article, and
'the efforts'of.the Cana-
' dian Handicrafts' Guild-
to find and retain a
market for the craft-
work which can be done
during the .winter
months on the farms of
Western Canada is
therefore well worthy.of
support. This GuildMs
preparing a handicraft
exhibit in connection
with the Folksong and
Folkmusie Festival
which the Canadian Pacific is .
organizing' to be ,Keld at Regina,
Marcli 20-23rd,'as the inauguration
of a Saskatchewan-Blanch***-���-=���-���-. ���������*;
The main idea of.this Great West
festival is to help Canadians to
realise the priceless heritage which
they possess -in the " traditional
melodies which have been brought
to this country by immigrants, and.
in some cases havc been composed
in this country by early settlers. The
field of folkmusic is so immense that
only a glimpse of it can be secured .
in the four days of this particular
fes-jival, but some of. the greatest
artists-of the continent will render *
interpretations and it promises
indeed, to be a feast of music and
color. Poul Bai, the Danish baritone
will feature in .Norse music, Charles
Marchand in the French-Canadian
folksongs and almost every nation
will be represented in handicraft X
as in song. Above is seen a, Slovak
weaver who will remove his pipe
and sing to his handiwork.
Nome Hero, Derby Winner
LeonharclSepella, hero of the famous race to Nome, is congratulated
on winning the Seventh Eastern International Dog Sled Derby at
Quebec. He covered 123 miles in eleven hours, six and a half minutes
with his sturdy team of Siberian huskies.
r Dog sled derby records were-broken and new ones established
during the three days of the race. Dupuis, who finished second, made a
world's record when he completed the first lap of 41 miles in 3 hours,
22 minutes, 42 seconds. Of the nine who finished the three laps, only
two took as long as the'first Derby winner at Quebec in 1923, demonstrating that hardier and speedier dogs have been developed for sled
work since then. * *
