Billy Poole Is Right
Billy Poole, afe one time, King of
tbe Lardean, said the following to
the Spokane Review last week:
"In Vancouver, B. C, last week
J was surprised at the marked
change in sentiment there in the
last few months," said Mr. Poole.
Formerly it was almost impossible
to find any one that' could be .induced to consider investing in anything bnt real estate or "industrial
seeurieties, but now they are' clam'
oring for a chance to become inter--
overlooking splendid" opporthni
ties, and they are endeavoring to
retrieve the fortunes lost in disastrous real estate specnlations by
associating themselves with the remarkable mineral development going on in the interior of the province.
' 'This revival of interest is not
confined to the coast cities alone.
There are men in the mining regions who never have been brought
to appreciate the promise of profit
there is in mining investments also
being awakened, and in Nelson
and other Kootenay towns conversation generally , is. beginning to
take the same trend that it did in
the old boom days.
"Everything points to a big
boom in the British Colnmbia
region next year. Our. oldtime
friends in Spokane, who never
have failed us, are planning to extend their operations there, and
they are interesting new capital for
the contemplated campaign. Added
to these will be the recruits from
among the ranks of our own investors, and* the corab_i_ed forces
are certain to bring about an unprecedented revival of activity.
War prices for metals, together
with the depression in other lines
that bas resulted from-the European conflict can not fail to stimulate the mining industry, which
now offers better opportunities for
investment than ever before."

Despite delays owing, to, snow-*

bridge building on the Hope Moan<-

conditions will permit Another
two weeks should see the steel
bridge at Ladner's Creek com>
pleted. This work is being carried out from the Hope end, owing
to a snow blockade west of Coquihalla Summit. The centre span of
the Ladner's Creek bridge was to
be put in plane today. The whole
bridge with steel work- and' wooden
approaches is about 600 feet long.
As previously announced- rails
have been laid from Hope- to Li-Miner's Creek for some time. Abou|
a mile east of the creek theqe. is
another bridge, a 350 foot wooden
trestle affair, still to be erected.
There is also a third about half a
mile farther east, at Mile 18 west
of Coquihalla Summit. Work 00
this bridge, which is 471 feet in
length, as well as on the other
wooden structure mnst await the
removal of the snow on the tracks
at Mile Four wes) of the Summit.
This snowslide is about 15 feet
deep. A rotary plow is now taking it off, and later timber will be
taken in to the bridge sites.
The actual depth of snow at the
Summit is at present four feet. In
November nearly 12 feet of snow
fell, but rains took most of it
away.
The Hope moan tain woik therefore still remaining comprises the
erection of a trestle bridge at Mile
18, the laying of steel for about
two-thirds of a mile to the second
trestle bridge, the construction of
this affair, and then the laying of
a mile of steel to' Ladner's Creek
bridge, which bridge as already
mentioned, will very Bhortly be
finished.���Penticton Herald.     J

Dominion to Give Free
Seed and Potatoes
By instructions of the minister
of agricnlture a free distribution of
superior sorts of grain and potatoes
will be made during the coming
winter and spring to Canadian
farmers. The sampleB will consist of spring wheat (about/5
'pounds, white oats (about four
pounds,) barley about 5 pounds,)
and field peas (about 5 pounds.)
These will be sent out from Ottawa.
A distribution of potatoes (in 3
pound samples) will be carried on
from several of the experimental
forms, the central farm at Ottawa
supplying only the provinces of
Ontario and Quebec.
Each application must be separate and must be signed by the
applicant, Only one sample of
grain and one of potatoes can be
sent to each farm. If both samp
les are asked for in the same letter only one will be sent. Applications on any kind of printed
farms cannot be accepted.
The "destruction by fire of the
cereal building at Ottawa, which
contained grain-cleaniDg machinery and a large stock of seed
{{rain for distribution, may make
ife necessary to curtail the distribution to a certain extent. We
shall fill as many as possible of the
applications which conform to the
rules; bufe requests received after
1I19 end of December will probably
be too late, says a circular signed
by J. H. Grisdale, director of experimental farms. Samples cannot
he sent in response to applications
(no matter when received) which
f.iil to state clearly the needs of
the applicant his experience in
crop-raising and the character of
the soil on which he intends to
sow the seed.
All .applications for grain, and
applications from the provinces of
Ontario and Quebec for potatoes,
phonld be addressed to the Dominion cerealist, central experimental
farm, Ottawa. Such
-require no postage. If otherwise
-addressed, delay and disappointment may occur.
Applications for potatoes from
farmers in any other province
should be addressed, postage pre
paid, to the superintendent of the
nearest branch experimental farm
in that province.
Take Care of Your Spine
The spinal cord is probably  the
most important part;  of the body;
we could live  without the brain,
but the spine is absolutely essential feo live.    The digestion of the
food, the nutrition of every part of
the  body,  the  work  of all of fehe
vital organs, the circulation of the
blood, are all under the direct control  of the  nerve centers of the
spinal cord and the associated masses of nerve cells lying in front of
the spine.    In fact each one of the
several million cells of which  the
body   is   composed   has   its   own
nerve cell in the spinal cord.    The
nutrition of the body  cell,  its  activities,   in  fact,  its very life, are
all    dependent    upon   its   spinal
nerve cell.
Tho spinal cord is housed in the
spine, composed of bones and ligaments, fehat it may furnish ample
protection to the delicate nerve
centers, and with many joints that
the body may have a variety of
movements. If the spine becomes
stiffened it interferes with the
proper circulation of the blood
through the spinal cord with the
result thafe the nerve centres become sluggish and slow in their
action, all the vital processes are
slowed, and old age is upon us,
whether we are thirty-five or Bixty-
five.
So the most important exercises
are those that exercise the spine,
the most important muscles to
keep in good condition are the
large muscles attached to tbe back
and front of the spine, the muscles which keep the body erect
when we are standing, and which
bends the body in various.'directions. These muscles are to be
exercised by bending in various
directions and by twisting the
spine. Every night just before
retiring bend forward from ten to
twenty-five times, keeping the
knees stiff and trying, to touch the
floor with the fiuger tips. Each
time just arise to the erect position. Never bend backward���it is
injurious. After the forward
bend, take the side bend an equal
number of times by placing the
hands on the hips and bending as
far as possible first to .the right
side then to the left side. This
completed, sit on the side of the
bed, drop the head forward with
chin on chest, place hands on hips
and twist the trunk as far as possible from one side to the other
from twenty-five to fifty times.
These simple exercises will not
only rest the body and insure restful sleep, but it will help to postpone old age.���Dr. R. R. Daniels.

The minister getteth his bife. The
editor printed a death notice, two
columns of obituary, three lodge
notices, a cubit of poetry and a
card of thanks. And he forgetteth
to read proof on the head, and the
darn thing cometh out "Gone to
Her Last Roasting Place."
And all that are akin to the deceased jampeth on the editor with
exceedingly great jumps. And
they pulleth out their ads and can-
celletb their subscriptions and they
swing the hammer unto the third
and fourth generations.

White Mice as Life-Savers
L'Amides Animaux, Geneva,
Switzerland, says, "We have already as auxilaries of war the
horse, the dog, the cat, the pigeon,
the mule, the ass, and now they
are talking of the white mouse.
The English military journal tells
us that no submarines goes without carrying many white mice. It
appears that these little creatures
are very quickly influenced by the
escape of dangerous gases, and at
the least danger they make a very
singular noise, which gives a warning to those aboard. Many lives
have thus been saved by this action of white mice:" Here is a
place where we devotely hope "the
best laid schemes o' mice and men"
might not "gang aft a-gley."���

Consider the editor. He wear
eth purple and fine linen. His
abode is amongst the mansions of
the rich.'y.;:������>!.j;:'-
Lo! All the people breaketh their
necks to hand him money. A
child is born unto the wife of a
merchant in the bazar. The physician getteth 10 golden plunks.
The editor writeth a stick and a
half and telleth the multitude that
the child tippeth the beam at nine
pounds. Yea, he lieth even as a
centurion. And the proud father
giveth him a cigar.
Behold the young one growetb
up and graduateth. And the editor putteth into his paper a swell
notice. Yea, a peach of a notice.
He telleth of the >< adorn of tbe
young woman, and her exceedingly comeliness. Like unto the
roses of Sharon is she and her
gown played up to beat the band.
And the dressmaker getteth two
score and fonr iron men. And
the editor getteth a note of thanks
from the S. G. G.
The daughter goefeh a jonrney.
And the editor throweth himself
on the Btory of the farewell party.
It runneth a co'umn solid. And
applications'] the fair one remembers him from
afar with a picture postcard and
costeth a six part of a jitney.
Behold, she returneth and the
youth of the city fall down and
worship. She picketh one, and lo,
she picketh a lemon. But the editor calleth him one of our most
promising young men and getteth
away with it. And they send
unto him a bid to the^wedding
feast, and behold, the bids are
fashioned by Mnntgommery and
Hawbuck, in a far city.    Flowery
