Norman enlisted in Victoria 4n
November, 1915, and went overseas in November 1916, where he
was in training at Seaford and
Bramshott, England. On August 1 st, 1917, hejirrived in France
as a member of the famous 54th
Battalion and was with this unit
uutil he was wounded at Cambrai
on Sept. 30, 1918. After this he
was sent to the No. 2 Hospital at
Le Treport,- France, later to the
Duchess of Connaught hospital,
at Taplow, England, and thence
to Kirkdale hospital, Liverpool,
where he was for a month before
going on the Hospital Ship Araguaya which docked at Portland,
The wounds which put Norman
out of action were made by splinters from a shell which exploded
beside him, entering his left leg,
above and below the knee.
One of these bits of metal cut the
sciatic nerve about half through,
which paralyzed the limb. After
going under a number of operations at Taplow, the nerve was
sewn together, This operation
is one of the marvels of modern
surgery, as Norman has regained
the use of the leg," and in time
it will be as strong as ever.

Director said:
''We found that a cut being driven across the ore body had penetrated 30 feet without having reached thc. foot wall. It had passed
through a vein of uniform values which was impregnated with free
;;oid. The average values over this width of 30 feet will run liigli
as compared with results of the more prominent Porcupine Producers. 'J'he vein is estimated to be 40 feet wide, and the assay
results were highly satisfactory."

immense possibilities of thc Davidson Mine. Thc big vein is
rapidly being developed up, and we think that announcements of

Live Stock'
Saskatchewan the First of Canadian
Provinces to Try Out System
Saskatchewan claims to bc ihe first
of the Canadian provinces to try out
thc co-operative system of live stock
marketing. When the co-operative
branch was established in thc fall or
1913 thc first work undertaken was
the compiling of a bulletin, explaining how the co-operative marketing
of live slock was carried on and
pointing out how this system of marketing eliminated all needless middlemen and secure''., -foi", -both, .'the
smaller producer and the larger contributor" the bcnef'��-of    competitive

The Wireless Telephone
May Supplement    Newspaper   as    a
Means of International Communication
The rapid development of thc wireless telephone is one of the romances
of the war.   In 1914 the wircl-- telephone was still in the experimental
stage and was regarded as a kind of
promising  side-line   to  wireless   telegraphy. ' But when thc aeroplane began to be largely used for rcconais-
sancc and for directing artillery fire,
the demand for some more   easy and
flexible mode of communication from
the air to the  land became    urgent.
British  inventors  responded  magnificently to thc call, and thc crude apparatus of  1914 became rapidly perfected so that it could bc relied upon
in  speaking  between  aeroplanes  and
land stations.up to fifteen miles and
beyond.'   Owing to, the necessities, of
secrecy very little was known to the
public about the improvements which
had  been  effected,  but their    extent
may be judged by the generors  tribute paid by.the-director of an-American  clectral    company,    which    had
been.-engaged-on thc.'samc field.    Hc
has stated that British "wireless, telephones'were better, in range aitel reliability, than any. which - had., been

opinion of Gen. Maurice, is "a movement of despair dictated by hunger, at
present and..uncertainty for the future." ��� -' ."."'..
"There must bc a stable and powerful government established in Germany," he said, "else the terms wc
will bc able to get in the settlement
of peace conditions will not be worth'
having and there i.s grave danger that
Germany will lapse into Bolshevism
if a decision is much longer delayed.
Hungary has yielded to the menace
and Germany may follow her example if the present conditions of uncertainty continue.'''
Gen. Maurice also stated that he
was surprised to find so much United
States opposition to the league pf
nations, which hc believed would bc
amended and should bc adopted in

Sure! High Heels
Cause Corns But
i     . Who Cares Now j
t ��� ^       t
Because style decrees lhat women
crowd and buckle up their tender toes
in high heel footwear they suffer from
corns, then they cut and trim at these
painful pests which merely makes the
com grow hard. This suicidal habit
may cause lockjaw and women arc
warned to stop it.
A few drops of a drug called frcezone applied directly upon a sore, corn
gives cjuick reiicf and soon the entire
corn, root and all, lifts out without
pain. Ask the drug store man for a
quarter of an ounce of freezonc,
which costs very little but is sufficient
to remove every hard or soft corn or
callus from one's feet.
This drug is an ether compound
and dries in a moment_ and simply
shrivels up the corn without inflaming or even irritating thc surrounding
tissue or skin. Clip this out and pin
on vour wife's dresser.

Secrets of Trade
Paris.���The Germans, who stole
so many industrial secrets in Belgium
and northern France, arc complaining
bitterly of thc cv.iiosity manifested by

documents concerning- the manufacture of dyes and that ,tne Americans,
in addition to making a careful study
of German processes, are trying to
hire tlic best German technicians by
offcring high salaries.

Annual Report
Best in History
Sun Life Provides Ample Margin of
Although the past ycar was a trying one to insurance companies, owing to war losses atid the influenza
epidemic, thc 4Sth annual report of
thc Sun Life Assurance Company is
thc best ever issued. The figures
show that the big Montreal corporation maintained its position as the
largest of our Canadian life assurance
companies, having a gain of nearly
$29,000,000 during thc ycar. The
amount of ncw policies paid for exceeded the $50,000,000. mark, the exact
figures being $51,591,000.
The total income received during
the year was in excess of $21,651,00,
while total assets now amount to
$97,620,000, a gain of nearly seven
and a half million dollars. The amount
paid to policy holders and their beneficiaries last ycar readied the largc
sum of $9,768,000, but the Sun's huge
surplus shows ils financial condition
is unchallenged. Another new high
record was made in regard to income, with $21,651,000 received,- a
gain of over $2,300,000 over thc figures for the previous ycar.
Tho Sun Life not onhr did its bit
through thc protection it afforded, bul
also used ils investments funds to
purchase government bonds instead
of ordinary securities, thereby assisting m.atc'riall}' in the winning of
the war.'
-Altogether thc showing made by
thc Sun Life is a most gratifying one,
ahd polic}' holders and shareholders
have every reason to feel gratified at
the records made m 1918.., The company is now settled in its new home,
whose unequalled facilities e'liabl. the
oflicers to do still, more effective

Chinese Meetings Forbidden
Letlibridge, Alta. ��� In connection
with thc arrest and trial of Chinese
conspirators on the yPacific coast,
Chief Hardy states that shortly after
thc war broke out the Chinese national league in that .city, which numbers
about 100 members, was training a
squad of about 40 young men in their:
club rooms. Thc impression given
out by their leaders was that they
wcrc preparing to fight for thc allies
if China declared war on Germany.
Later the chief of police decided that
their training was a menace and stopped it, and later still meetings of
Chinese in the club rooms were banned.

Value of the Bull in Building Up a
Profitable Herd
At a certain agricultural meeting a
discussion arose regarding the relative valuc.of thc bull. A griz/.'"'1 old
farmer arose, to ^Jiis" feet and said:
"My experience, is that the bull
half the herd; yes, and he's darn
near all of it if he's a bad one."
An admirer of Shorthorn, puts, it
this way: A' steer of inferior breeding goes to market weighing 900 lbs.
and sells for 8c per pound. .O-.-.ihc
iame day a stcei:--of the same.age,
sired by a registered. Shorthorn bull,
goes to market weighing 1500 lbs.,
and sells for Hj/C per lb. Thc total
price for. the one is $72, for the other
$217.50, a difference .of $145.50. . In'
other words, the y^tecr by thc "registered Shorthorn bull sells tor as much
money as three of the others. It is
just possible that a t-gislcrcd Shorthorn bull is thc most profitable investment on the farm where beef pro-:
duction is followed.- T~
At a recent Ontario provincir' .. Inter fair, the steer".which was beaten
in his class only .by tho steer which
afterwards won the grand championship of the show, was out of a little
scrubby cow of no particular breeding. How did it happen that such a
miserable little cloyv produced such a
good steer? The answer is simple.
The sire of the steer vvas a good
Shorthorn bull.
Perhaps an independently wealthy
man can afford to usc a scrub bull if
he wants to, but the man who has
to make his money off thc farm cannot afford to usc a scrub bull at- any
price���not even though received as a
gift. The different in the value of
thc progeny will pay many limes over
thc difference between the price of a
good bull and a scrub.���G. F... Day,

to be preserved.. 2^ Healeth all diseases (v.\'3). This refers to the healing of thc body and'the soul. Renovation of man's moral nature is necessary. 3. Rcdeenieth thc life from

against the debtor. God in Christ
performs the part which the individual, failed to perform, and crowns him

From slowly bubbling springs on
the swampy ground left by thc receding waters of this strange inland salt-
sea formed in the Salton Sink iu 1906,
comes a peculiar creamy substance
which cools and hardens on exposure
lo lhc air, and which has been found
to be a good pigment. Mixed with
oil and heated, this substance makes
a high grade of paint.
The pigment is found in green,
deep red, and yellow, while yet many
othe^ shades may be made by thc
application of heat. It may be refined by a simple and inexpensive
The cause of the phenomenon is as
yet unexplained. For nianyo'cars before thc filling of the sink with water, in 1906, the area had been a great
suit desert. Otic suggestion is that
the filtdfing of the water into the
earth may have induced chemical action .which started the pigment volcano. ;
Already this giaht paint shop of
nature, 40 acres in extent, has attract*
ed the attention of natural scientists
and business men. The flow of pigment seems to be in never-ceasing
supply. Mineral claims have been filed on the district by its discoverers
and large shipments of pigment already made. . ���

'Denouncing the I, W. W. and
the Eolsbeviki in terms that
aroused his hearers to enthusiastic
applause, and prasiog the Salvation Army as one of the greatest
eeonomic institutions in America,
Dr. John Willis Baer addressed
the team captains and workers who
are conducting the Salvation
Army's home service campaign at
a luncheon at the Alexander Hotel
Tbe former president of Occidental College read a "hymn of
hate" from a radical publication
which, he said, had been sent him
from Seattle, the scene of the recent strike disturbances. The
words parodied "Onward Christian
Soldiers," and were unfit to print,
but when he had finished he said:
' (I say to hell with such stu S.
We business and professional men
.who. are gathered. her to discuss
the 'cause of. "the Salvation' Army
are in duty bound to support the
institution that is doing more than
any other organization in the.
country to dispel industrial, unrest
and to help the down-arid-outers
and the class from which1 the radicals are recruited  to better their
.condition arid realize they are looking at life, and  conditions  from a
-distorted viewpoint." -,.',"
In the same class with!r! thei'i.W.

placed the.yellow, journalists;- who
are trying to stir. up discord and.
enmity between ;,', America . arid
Great Britain.-  He said:. ..     ;r -

..ourselves and these men, whether,
he.does it.with.a gun j or with the

trouble in understanding the allusion.���Los Angeles Times.

Those Sweet Old Days
How they come back to us!���
"those sweet old days," now in
the glad springtime. Even in the
heart of a great city the fragrance
of apple-bloom, and fehe perfume of
lilac-bud and dewy violets fill our
senses as fond memory carries us
back feo old and cherished haunts
and wayside places, whore mayhap, we have paused to hear Love's
whisper, or laugh in pleasures
deep, or���wepts our tears!
The birds sing, fleecy clouds
ffoat by���oh, how blue and interminable the sky! How full of joy
life is! Off yonder the liver runs,
a thread of gold in the sunlight, a
river of silver iu the moonlight!
The leaves" rustle sofbly iu the
mild breeze, as overhead their
giant branches spread, and here at
our feet tho grasses with buttercup and daisies peeping therefrom.
O youthl 0 life! 0 happiness!
Hope and faith make fehe heart
strong and the footstep light.
Ah! how well we remember ife,
you and I! "Those sweet old
days," when feo us all the world
was young. Such dreamy, fragrant sweetness, when sorrow, pain
and death seemed so far away.
But somehow we older grew.
Time brought so many changes.
There were happy "good-bys" and
tearful farewells. Hands clasped,
lips met and parted. Eyes looked
into eyes glinting wifeh mirth, as
shadowed wifeh mists, but even
then, 'twas bufe for a day; but
again slipped into weeks, weeks
into months and months into
.years���''-hope deferred made the
heart sick;" bright eyes grew dim,
cheeks paled, phantom shadows
crept among the hair, hands
trembled and feet faltered.
Ah, yes, there were roses, but
their dewy fragrance and velvet
petals did .not deaden- the sharp-,
ness of the thorns; and a'blood-,
stained .pathway .was often there-
suit. .The. lips smiled oftimes
when the heart Was broken. We
kept silence, because it-were sacrilege to speak,' to murmur or to
moan; the sorrow was too deep. .
. Misunderstood?- Yes,- many
times, you and 1. Ah, there are
bits of-', ribbon, tear-stained,' .and
yellow with age," faded flowers and
old love tokens..' :. --.. ',.
���'..Memory :is : rife with them all,
the.joys, .the sorrows, .the successes
and defeats. Off yonder is a grave,
and there, and there, and away
over there,..with wide..waters rolling! between���ron..southern - slopes
and northern \ vales. XX We have
stood without -when--.-we. should
haveisat; within. We "tried to.be
brave; when, nature' protested; arid
yet, for .all,that has come and
gone, there is pleasure in the pain
as the .memory of "those 'sweet old
days" floats back'to us..- Pleasure
in knowing that rmeanwhile we
have, ferodden the wine-press and
borne the heat arid burden of. the
day;. that "come what will, wf
have been blest," and so we take!
up our script and staff again, you
and I, glad in the promise of fehat
.eternal springtime when God shall
wipe away all tears from our eyee.
and "those sweet old days" will bp

Q*AYS an Eastern writer: "Tlie Province of British
*^ Columbia is the wonderland of Canada." It is a country in
itself, almost a nation. Extending from the western plainsof
Canada to the Pacific Ocean, and from the International Boundary to the 60th Northern, Parallel of-Latitude, it has an area of
355,855 square miles. It has thirtyvseven more square miles than
the combined area of the coast States of California, Washington
and Oregon. It is -larger than the total acreage of the United
Kingdom, France, Belgium and Holland. If the Yukon Territory is included it has an area of 562,931 square miles, equal to
' the.combined areas of the United Kingdom, Holland, Belgium,
Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden. These latter
countries have a total population of over 135,000,000 people,
British Columbia has a scant. 400,000; So there is a future in
this province. ��� :
Geographically Situation Favorable
1 * ��� ^ ���-.���'���������-���' '" ���     '      ' X    '
Watson Griffin, in a valuable work recently published on
Canada for the Dominion Government, says that the geographical
situation of British Columbia is.most favorable for all trade with
the countries of the Pacific and Indian oceans. -"A British manufacturing establishment with large trade in the East by ""establishing a branch at Vancouver could save over-6800 miles of carriage
in shipping goods to Japan or Siberia, over 5000 miles in shipping
to Shanghai, 4000 miles in shipping to Hong Kong, 4900 miles in
shipping to New Zealand, ov^er 4600 miles in shipping to Sydney,.
Australia, and nearly a thousand miles to Singapore;''  he states.
Millions of Acres of Arable Land
There are in British Columbia millions of acres of arable land.
The pasturage area is immense. British Columbia undoubtedly
has the largests forests of. first-class timber on the North American continent.    Almost every known mineral has been discovered.
; Millions of dollars' value in gold has been washed or quarried
from the rivers and sands atid mountains. There are wonderful
deposits of silver, copper, lead. . Coal.of high  quality is widely
. distributed on ^mainland and islands, and important deposits of
iron ore has been discovered. The wealth of the British Columbia
^fisheries cannot be estimated./-...- '-."-���
