they consider is sufficient time
for the Government to inaugerate
* a new and more adequate system.

Prior to the outbreak of the war,
the world obtained   most   of   its
potash supply from Germiny. The
price then was about $48 per ton
on this Pacific  coaBt.     Now the
price is between 8150 and $180, and
even at that price the supply is
short.    To help to overcome this
scarcity, the International Chemical Co., Ltd., a concern financed
by   the  National   Chemical   Co.,
Ltd.,   is now  completing the installation of the equipment for a
potash plant at Pacofi,  on Cum-
shewa  Inlet  on   Moresby Island.
The old plant which belonged to
the Standard Fisheries there has
been taken over.    New machinery
has been added for the recovery of
potash.     In   addition,   the  company proposes to extract oils from
non-edible fish, and also to make
fertilizer from the fish after the oil
extraction process.
All the edible fish caught by the
company's boats will be placed in
its cold storage plant, and sent in
weekly shipments to Prince Rupert for packing. Potash, oil, fertilizer and fish will be the fourfold enterprise of this new company.
Some of the mosfe extensive kelp
beds are situated on Cumshewa
Inlet, where this company have
got licences from the government.
These kelp beds extend over an
area of some ten pquare miles. The
new plant will bave a capacity for
handling about 1.000 tons of wet
kelp per day. The cutting of the
kelp will start within the next few
weeks?. This harvest of the sea is
reaped by knives affixed or suspended below scows, which pass
over the kelp beds, cutting over
the kelp growth as it passes along.
The kelp rises to the surface, and
:'-. gathered and sent to the potash
plant, where by a special process,
the potash is recovered.
The Chemical Company is now
operating large plants at Los Angeles and San Diego, and even at
pre-war prices, it is claimed that
the company would be able to
operate satisfactorily owing to tbe
exceptional richness of the kelp
beds on the Qoeen Charlotte
Islands. It claims for tbe Moresby Island plant that it will be
equipped in the most np to date
and efficient manner, second to
none in existence.���Prinee Rupert

A west Texas editor got tired of
being called a "liar" because of an
occasional typographical error or
slight disarrangement of the facts
in publishing a commonplace newB
item. In his wrath he announceed
in black type as follows:
"A lot of people in this towu
fall out with the editor aud brand
him as a liar when the ordinary hu
man mistakes of life show up in a
newspaper. You have a little char
ity and fellow feeliu' for every man
in town but your editor. You say
that you want the facts, and d���d
if I don't give 'em to you. Read
the next issue of this sheet and you
will see some facts with the bark
off. I'll admit that I have been a
liar, an editorial lian, ever since I
have been editing this sheet, but I
have never printed a lie in these
columns except to save somebody's
feelings from being hurt. I'm not
afraid of any of you and I'll be dad
blamed if I don't print the plain
truth from now on, or until you
get out of the habit of calling me
a liar every time I make an error. '
Here are some paragraphs taken
from the next issue:
"John Bennin, the laziest merchant in town, made trip to Waco
yesterday."
John Coyle, our groceryman,
who voted with the Republicans in
1906, and consumes more mail-order whiskey than any other member of the Baptist church iu this
country, is doing a poor business.
His store is dusty and dirty. Ife
is a wonder he has any business at
all."
"Rev. Sty preached last Sunday
night at the Christian church. His
sermon was punk and uninteresting, except some stuff he quoted
from Bob IngerBoll, for which he
failed to give Bob any credit. He
also recited a few passages from
Munsey's sermons and had the gall
to palm ife off as his own."
"Dave Chartier died last night.
Dock Holderness was with him
when he croaked, and gave it out
that Dave died of heart failure.
That is lie. Dave died from, too
much poor mail order licker. This
paper tells the truth."

All through the year wheat is
being harvested. In January it is
cut in the great fields of fehe Argentine and New Zealand. In
February and March it is cut in
the East Indies and Egypt. The
wheat fields are harvested in April
in Cyprue, Asia Minor and Cuba,
and in May in China and Japan.
June is the busiest harvest month
of the whole year, for then Turkey,
Greece, Spain and southern France,
aB well as most of the southern
States of America are all cutting
wheat. Tbe northern States of
America, and provinces of Canada,
as well as Austria, Germany and
parts of Russia begin their harvest
gathering in July. August sees the
wheat crop gathered in Great Britain and September and October for
Sweden and Norway. Peru and
South Africa are busy harvesting
in November and December.
George C. Boldt, well-known
hotel man, was talking in Philadelphia about the hotels in Switzerland.
"They are good," said Mr.
Boldt. "At the price they are remarkably good. The Swiss are a
nation of hotelkeepers.
"The Alps, you know, draw all
the world to Switzerland, and the
Switzer who wants to become a
millionaire goes into the hotel business, as an American would go
into steel or sugar. He begins at
the bottom.    He is a waiter.
"It is said that once in Berne,
at a historic public meeting, all the
leading men of Switzerland were
gathered together. A vote had
been taken and in the intense silence preceding tho epoch-making
verdict of the tellers a wag shouted, 'Waiter!'
"Instantly the whole assembly
rose as one man and answered,
Yes, Birl' "

"Paste this on your glass," said a man
to me not long ago. And I pass it on as
a bit of verse that has much wisdom in it:
If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not. you don't;
If you like to win but you think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you've lost;
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellows will;
It's all iu the state of mind.
If you think you're outclassed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise;
You've got to be sure of'yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the strongest or fastest man;
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the mail who thinks he can.

Little Jennie had been eating
very heartily, but she asked for
another piece of cake.
"Jennie," said her mother, "I
don't believe I ooght to give it to

little girl can possibly be. Another mouthful and you will surely
burst."
''But, mama, my neck's left
