Most people are in a hurry; they have little time to waste.
When you are in a rush, think how the telephone will help
you.   It reaches everywhere,   Its use is economical.
They say "The more hurry, the less speed." but that
originated in the clays before the telephone. Now it is "The
more hurry, the greater speed," for the action of the telephone
is instantaneous.

Concerning Quebec
We have harbored and nursed
treason iu this country for half a
century. We have only ourselves
to blame if the day should now
arrive when our unnatural foundling should tur_Q against us. Anti-
British sentiment has been openly
cultivated in Quebec for more than
a generation, with the open toleration of both political parties.
Special privileges have been demanded by Quebec repeatedly���
and invariably have been granted
by whichever party chanced to be
in power at the moment when the
demands were made. Anti-imperialism has beeu developed almost
to the point where it becomes a religion. Religion itself has besn
misused for furthering racial ambitions. Tbe English-speaking Catholics in Canada have been treated
by the Queboc hierarchy as of little importance. Their interests
have on all occasions bave been
made subservient to the racial interests of Quebec. There has been
scarcely a campaign conducted
non-.in.lly iu behalf of religious
privileges that has not been merely
a racial campaign in disguise, designed to spread the French language and French political ideas
throughout    Canada. ��� Winnipeg

Drowning Fatality
Last Monday afternoon, Mrs. A.
L. Bass, her sister, Miss Marguerite Eichelbeiger,  and Miss Hud-
dard   went    bathing   in   Martins
Lake,   abont a   mile from   East
Princeton.     Getting beyond their
depths the two young ladies were
drowned.    In their struggles for
life they clutched Mrs.   Bass, who
had hold of a log, and almost carried her down with them.    By almost superhuman efforts Mrs. Bass
got out of the water and ran a mile
to inform   her   husband   of   the
tragedy.     Then    she    collapsed.
Soon as possible he,  accompanied
by some of his workmen rushed to .
tbe lake,  and took the bodies of
the yonng women out of tbe water.
Medical aid   was   procured   from
Princeton,  and a pnlomotor from
Copper Mountain bnt too   much
time had elapsed and the strenuous
efforts of the physicians,  aided by
the machine were all in vain.   On
Tuesday the embalmed   body   of

Hnddard will be buried in Grand
Forks today.   The home of Miss
Huddard is    in   England.     One
sister lives in Coalmont, and another in Grand Forks.

medical treatment. He carries

that was taken one of his leg, and
and yon would wonder, how a
chunk of ragged metal like that
could go through a man's leg without tearing it all to pieces.
Peanuts as Food
The peannt is a mine of riches,
containing more porfeein, or lean
meat value, than any other nut
known and an immense store of
fat, so that as a food it is a rich
treasure, but it should be recognized and used as a solid food and
nofe aa a between meal tidbit, for it
is anything bufe a delicate or light
food. This, however may be said
of all nuts, and one should avoid
overloading the system with them,
for by this is indigestion formed
and undeserved reproach to nuts
as foods.

We and Our Neighbors
Generally speaking, the western
farmer is, in many respects, in a
much better position than hitherto
to increase his production. Two
years of high prices for his products have enabled him, even with
a normal crop, to liquidate a sub*
Btantial proportion of-bis liabilities
and at the same time to buy improved farm machinery. His prosperity is ..reflected, in the demand
for building materials motor cars
and other equipment. It is no
doubt true that some extravagence
is evidenced by the astonishing demand for motor cars, but it must
be remembered that many of these
cars will make for efficiency On the
farm ond economize both time and
In Saskatchewan 21,000 licenses
for motor cars were issued up to
tbe beginning of May, and it is
estimated by the department that
the total would reach 30,000 before
the end of the summer. In 1910
the number issued amounted to
15,000 and in 1915 to 9,000. This
extraordinary increase has been
accompanied by considerable activity in the business centres of the j
Participation by the United
States into the war will have one
result in which all good Americans can rejoice without misgivings and without qualifications:
It will help enormously to remove
misunderstanding between the
Canadian and American nations
and to lay an indispensable foundation for their future co-operation.
Of all the positive needs of American foreign policy, the working out
of some common basis of common
action with Canada is the most
essential. The facts of geography,
the circumstances of a common experience and the similarity of institutions and ideals all help to
make Canada the nearest relative
and.the most fruitful ally of the
American republic. At the present time Canada aud the United
States are the only two nations
participating in the war which have
nothing to gain from their labors
and sacrifices except political good
which will benefit all free and
democratic nations no less than
themselves. It should, consequently, be the deliberate policy of the
American government to use every
opportunity afforded by the par*
ticipation of Canada and the
United States in the same war to
convert that common participation
into the most immediate and
many-sided practical co-operation.

Mining Industry
Canada produces 'practically all
the known minerals. Production
has leaped from $10,000,000 in
1871 to $170,000,000 in 1915, and
yet Prof. W. G. Miller says:
"Only the fringe of our mineral
resources have been touched;" and
that only ten per cent, of Ontario's
promising mineral area' has been
prospected. The same applies to
most of the other provinces.
Mining production in the Dominion has doubled in 11 years,
and the total production since Con-
feration is nearly two billion dollars.
Canada supplies over 80 per cent
of the world's nickel output, as
well as of asbestos. Estimated
coal areas 100,000 square miles.

Whole Wheat Bread
��� If you would be healthy eat
only whole wheat bread. The
white flour in general nee has beeh
bled white by the millers. It represents the starchy white powder
remaining after most of the nutritional olements except the starch
and gluten have been bolted ont.
It has no food value except that
due to starch and a moderate
amount of wheat protein. On the
other hand, whole wheat flour contains the wheat germ and carries
the phosphates and other mineral
salts needed by the human body, a
considerable part of the portions,
most of the fats and some ��� of the]
carbohydrates. In short, the real
vitalizing part of the wheat is in
whole wheat flour.

This well-appointed hotel, in Kootenay's oldest mining town,
is a pleasant home for all who travel. It is delightfully situated,
and from its balconies the vista of lake and mountain scenery
is grandly magnificent: It is but a few yards from the- famous
and health-giving hot mineral water springs. Tourists, drummers, miners, muckers, millionaires, and the general public
are alike welcome at this hostelry. The rooms are cheerful,
the meals tasty, and the spirits in the bar are fit for the gods,
while the cigars are a delight to those who flirt with My Lady
Nicotine.   Come for a day, and you will come forever.
