Memorial Service
Honor was done to tbe memory
of the late Mr. J. P. McLeod, former deputy attorney-general of
this province, on March 27 last,
when a memorial service was held
at Valleyfield, P. E.I. The Charles-
town Guardian, in an recent issue
priuted an account of the service
as follows:
A memorial service was held in
the Presbyterian Church, Valley-
field, on Tuesday, 27th March, fur
the late John P. McLeod, B.A.,
deputy attorney-general of B. C,
whose remains (inoinerated) were
interred in the family plot of the
Valleyfield cemetery. The day
was fine and a good congregation
assembled to pay their tribute of
respect to a distinguished son of
the congregation. Tbe pastor,
Rev. J. M. MacLeod, presided and
conducted the devotional exercises.
Rev. John M. MacLeod, (St.
Peter's) an intimate friend and
fellow-student of the deceased, delivered an appropriate funeral ad-
drees from II. Sam. 3, 38 ("Know
ye nob that a prince and a great
man has fallen in Israel") in which
he referred to the distinguished
scholastic attainments and excellent
qualities of the deceased. Of tbe
many scholars and professional
men whom Valleyfield congregation has sent forth, he said, J. P.
McLeod was the most brilliant,
and his record in Dalhoneie University has been unsurpassed, and
that he could have adorned a
* 'Chair in Classics" in any of the
leading universities of the world.
Were it not for his modesty and
quiet demeanor, he would have a
continental reputation as a pcholar.
It is felt by some of the leading
men oi the community that snch a
distinguished student should receive eome public recognition so
that his career might be an inspiration to others. And it is proposed
tbat a suitable "Memorial" be
erected to perpetuate his memory.

Those best informed here are a
unit in expressing the belief that
Congress will, although perhaps
not until there has been a long debate on the subject, authorize the
raising of the new army by the
President's plan of selective conscription. This means that every
man who is needed in industries
bearing upon the war will be left
at his post, to do hie bit iu the
factory or the office or on the farm,
aud so to serve his country no less
truly than does his brother who
takes his ritlu to the trenches. The
fact that the raising of an army by
the process of volunteering necessarily aud inevitably disorganizes
business and industry, is in itself,
Administration leaders think, a
sufficient argument in favor of a
plan which will leave men who are
doing efficient work at the places
where they are most efficient.

A Golden Niagara
Talking about the effectB of war
preparations in the United States,
the New York Mining Age Bays:
Such a flood of money the
world has never seen. A Niagara

through every channel of business

The difficulties due to the shortage of labour and scarcity of raw
material to which reference has
been made from mouth to month
show no Bigus of lessening, and the
demand for manufactured goods
continues undiminished. The
prospect of relief from these conditions has not been increased by
the recent war developments in the
United States, from which country
we have been obtaining steadily
increasing supplies of raw materials
ever since the outbreak of the war.
Machinery for munition making
has also been imported in large
quantities and, although our Canadian plants are now well equipped,
the machinery has constantly to be
replaced. The hope is entertained
that a satisfactory arrangement
will be arrived at between the two
countries so that their resources

One of the results of the entry
of the United States into the war
will be an increase iu the demand
for paper. To meet this demand
will be a matter of some difficulty,
as the plants have been operating
at their fullest possible capacity,
and ib will in all probability hasten
the erection of the new plants already projected, especially iu the
central and far western pulpwood
areas. British Columbia mills in
1915 exported to the United States
47,319,178 pounds of news print,
valued at SI,002,527, and in 1916,
57,055,778 pounds, valued at 81,-
209,466. The greater part of these
shipments wa3 destined for California and Washington, but the
demand is steadily widening.

Dr. Charles E. Banks of the
public health service writes me
asking that I call the attention to
my readers to the hygienic necessity of using whole wheat bread an
a staple article of diet. This time
of stress, when economic necessity
may cause radical changes in our
diets, iB an opportune one.
He says that the flour in general
use has been bled white by the
millers. It represents the starchy
white powder remaining after the
most of the nutritional elements
except the starch aud gluten have
been bolted out. He says that experiments show that test chickens
fed exclusively on bleached white
Hour after 20 days will become
paralyzed from malnutrition and
that a few days' feeding on the
parts of the grain bolted out will
restore them to health.
White flour has no value except
that due to starch and a moderate
amount of wheat protein. It ap
peals to tho housewife because it
looks white and pretty, it keeps
well, it works up well into bread
and pastries and it makes attractive
bread. It is commercially attractive because it keeps well in all
climates. It is a dead, inert substance that resists bacterial processes well and is not easily fermented.
On the other hand, whole wheat
flour contains the wheat germ and
in consequence doeB not keep so
well. The very vitalizing quality
of the flour makes it less stable.
In the parts of the wheat berry
ordinarily bolted out are the vita-
mines, so necessary for continued
health, the phosphates and other
mineral salts needed by the human
body, a considerable part of the
porteins, most of the fats and
some of the carbohydrate?. The
very ingredients of the berry most
needed for health are made into
byproducts and sold to farmers as
food for cattle and hogs.
The United States public health
service issued a bulletin on this
subject in J 916. Any one who
roads this bulletin will understand
wby many Americans are constipated, weak, pasty and anemic.
As things now are the consumer
has trouble in getting whole wheat
flour from dealers. Having unsuccessfully tried some of the grocery
stores some have purchased coffee
mills and ground their own flour.
A person taking a mixed diet
expects to get from other foods the
ingredients which are lacking in
flour. The suggestion offered by
Dr. Banks is that we change our
custom now. A wide demand for
whole wheat flour would be followed by an easily obtainable supply.
The change in custom would increase the supply of flour and increase the healthfulness of bread.

Tell How They Regained Strength
and Vigor
Stcubenville, Ohio.���'.My husband
is 79 years old and I am 78 years of age
and we owe our good health to Vinol,
the greatest strength creator and
medicine there is. When either one
of us get into a weakened, run-down
condition, Vinol has never failed to
build us up and restore strength. We
have often said we would not be
living now were it not for Vinol."

LAND REGISTRY ACT
Re West half of South East quarter and
East half of South West quarter of
Section 3, Township 66, Similkameen
Division, Yale District.
WHEREAS proof of loss of Certificate
of Title No. 25463A to the above mentioned land issued in the name of Robert C
Johnston has been filed   at  this  office,
notice is hereby given that I shall, at the
expiration of one month from the date of
publication hereof, issue a duplicate of
said Certificate, unless in the meantime
valid objection be made to me in writing.
DATED at the Land Registry Office,
Kamloops, B. C, this 19th day of April,
1917.
C. H. DUNBAR,
District Registrar.
Wm. Ross died in New Westminster last month. He came to
B. C. in 1S5S, and built the greater
part of the Cariboo trail, along the
Fraser river.
Steamers on the coast have
raised their freight rates. It now
costs $7 to bring vegetables from
the South to Prince Rupert. The
former rate was So.
In Alaska the men at the telegraph stations in the Artie circle
are warned by the government not
to drive their dog teams where it
is more than GO below zero. It
sometimes drops to 85 below in
that country where it is said to be
very healthy No doubt it forces
people to take exercise.
After running about 20 years,
the Mail-Herald at Revelstoke has
suspended publication. In a short
time there will be few weekly
papers in the province. It is bad
omen when the people let their
papers die out. It shows a lack of
public spirit that injures any community. Support your local paper
even if you have to give the editor
potatoes in lieu of cash.
There is a strong movement in
B.C. towards weekly, instead of
monthly paydays. The laboring
men think it would be more advantageous to get their wages
every Saturday or Monday.

C LOAT is not a periodic-
*��� al. It is a book containing 86 illustrations all
told, and is filled with
sketches and stories of
western life. It tells how
a gambler cashed in after
the fluBh days of Sandon ;
how it rained in New Denver long after Noah was
dead; how a parson took a
drink at Bear Lake in
early days; how justice
was dealt in Kaslo in '93;
how the saloon man out-
prayed the women in Kalamazoo, and graphically depicts the roamings of a
western editor among the
tender-feet in the cent belt.
It contains the early hiBtory
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens
of articles too numerous
to mention. Send for one

price is 25 cents, postpaid to any part of the
