It is reported that the Northport
lead smelter will resume operations during the summer.
For the first three months of
1919 ore and concentrates to the
weight of 96,542 gross tons were
received ��� at the Consolidated
smelter in Trail. This compares
with 103,118 for fehe corresponding
period in 1918, and with 120,486
tonB in the first; quarter of 1917.
Granby Consolidated Mining
company -pn April 6th resumed
work at Anyox and smelter, which
has been chilled for nearly a
month, wj��s blown in and production started. All branches of the
company's plant, including the
mine, are at work. The men returned to work under the sliding
scale of wages, which makes them
participants in profits as the price
of copper increases The plant
employs 1500 men, many of whom
are returned soldiers.
Extensive development of the
Nugget and Mother Lode gold
mines at Sheep creek in Kootenay,

about an acre of ground. Aboufe
$200,0,00 is fehe.cosfe of the mill
which has a capacity of 300 tons.

superior throughout. Construction of the plant was performed on
plans indicated by; Clarence Cunningham, its owner.: The mill was
builtto dress ores, from fehe Sov-
erign, Wonderful, Queen Bess and

rneumatic poison, easing the aching,
painful, swollen joints, aud restoring
the victim to general good health.
Among thc rheumatic sufferers who
have been cured hy the usc of this-
medicine is Mrs. Wm. Johnston,
Chatham, Out., who says: "Some
ycars ago, while living in Mount Forest, I was stricken with inflammatory
rheumatism, from which I suffered
terrible agony. Neither the doctor
who attended me, nor thc remedies I
tried gave more than a little relief
for a time, and as a .consequence, I
grew very weak and was on thc
verge of nervous prostration. At this
sta.ee an uncle advised me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, as they had
cured him of a severe, attack of rheumatism. I took his advice and faithfully used the pills for several
months,1 when I found myself fully
restored to health with every vestige of thc rheumatism, and every
symptom of the nerve trouble gone.,
[ have had no return of either trouble |
since, and feel very Grateful for. what
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills did for mc.'i
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can be obtained lln-onoh any medicine dealer,
or may be had by mail at 50 cents a
box or six boxes for $2.50 from The
Dr. 'Williams' Medicine Co.. Brockviile, Ont.

live   Shorthorn  bull.-i    "   <-avn  two
or more daughters iu thc Canadian
record of performance. Of these
bulls, nineteen are of straight Scotch
breeding, and the other., six are
Scotch topped. lt would seem,
therefore, that straight Scotch and
Scotch topped sires may be used successfully in dual purpose herds, which
is a fact of great importance, because
it is only by the use of sires'or more
or less approved beef type that we
can hope to maintain tlic dual- purpose rnudiiie.s  in  tlie 'Shorthorn.
Coming lo thc largc pro'ducing
cows, we find twenty cows three
ycars old and over with records of
over .400 lbs. of. hulterfat. One of
these cows is straight Scotch, one is
straight English, mostly ISates, and
the remainder are of mixed breeding.
Nine of these cows arc by straight
Scotch sires, eight are by Scotch topped sires, and fifteen out of the twenty possess one or more straight
Scotch crosses.
Among the two ycar olds wc find
nine which-have records of over 300
lbs. of buttcrfat. -One of these heifers is straight Scotch, and another
one is nearly straight Scotch. Three
out of thc: nine arc by straight Scotch
bulls, and the remaining pi.\ are. by
Scotch topped bulls. Kight ou! nf 'l'o
nine havc one or more' straight
Scotch cross in  their pedigree.
The fact that these large producing
females carry so much Scotch blood
should .be y encouraging; ���.- to.. y... those
breeders-.^

It is absolutely indispensable that
every pupil fegardless &f itg�� should
know clearly vho Jesus Is and what
he came into !Jie work! for* Jt should
be the ardent desire of 6Tcfy teacher
to make so clear the person fend work
of Christ that the pupils inny ftccept
liim &s their Saviour, Nothing short
of his Ddty. find vicr.rioua btoncment
will avail for salvation, W'iiat he is
set forth to t��e fs through personal
testimony, I'of tlio inof,t psrt that
which ha was found to ho is through
personal Investigation,
1, Tha Lamb of God (v, 36), John
tefltlrtod that .he- ia tho Lamb" of God
���tho''world's sin benrciv Thc word
used and-tho Idea conveyed carry ua
back lo IbuIkIi 53 und forward to
Jesus Oil tho cross, bearing our sins
in hlit own hotly, Christ: had been
definitely pointed out to John by the
Holy Spirit (v, 33,.34),
2, The.Messiah (v, 41), At the. invitation of Jesus, the disciples went
and uhodo with 1dm for a clay, As a
result of that day with Jesus they
testified that ha Is tho Messiah. He
Is that one whom God had anointed
to bo the Saviour of men,
3, The Son of God (v, 49), Nathan-
ael wus Interested through the testimony of a friend. Philip told him that
he had found Jesus of "Nazareth, of
whom.Moses had written. Ha .knew
that Xazareth was not the birthplace
of the Messiah, therefore he inquired:
"Can any good thing; come- out of
Nazareth?" At the invitation of
Philip he made a personal investigation', ��� As��� a-result he testified thai
Jesus was the Son of God, the ICi.i'^
of Israel,
4, The Son of Man (v, 51). This is
Christ's own testimony. It shows that
hc Is the Messiah who, according to
Daniel's prediction (Dan, 7;13) would
appear in divine glory and establish a
universal and eternal kingdom. In
this testimony of Jesus is foreshadowed thc union of man and God, and
through him thc establishment-of a
medium of communication- between
earth and heaven. This Is the reality
of Jacob's vision at" Bethel (Gen. 28:
12).
2. His Mission in the World (Matt.
20:27, 28j John 3:16).
Hc came to give his life a ransom
for many. The world was lost iu sin
���about to perish. Christ voluntarily
gave his life���-died instead of the sinner.
1, Thc world is dying like the Israelites, because bitten by the serpent
of sin.
'' 2. Christ, like the brazen serpent,
has been lifted up upon the cross as
the remedy for sin (John 3:14, 15).
3. As the Israelites must look up to
the uplifted" serpent, so those who
would be saved must believe on Jesus
Christ (Jphn3:16). - While looking
by' faith to the crucified Christ saves
froni thc death-alin'g of the serpent, a
neglect or refusal .to-.believe .on him
means to perish,.- "���' - - - -',
4. This provision was made by God,
It-enianated front his Jove (John-3:
16). ."For God so loved the \vorld
that' he gave his only .begotten .Son."
3.: What.He Gives (Rom.'8:31; 32)
'.God gayc his Son to save a .dying
.world. Those who accept his Son' have
God on their side^ He -tliat spared his
.-Son.will .fre.cly'g.ive all things to those
who receive him.. He even, makes all
things work together' for- good ' to
thcm who love hiin (Rom. 8:28).'

Helping Farmers
To Prosperity
Rural Credits . Scheme   Proving    of
Great Benefit
More than"$215,0.00 was "lent lo 368
farmers, more " than 10,000 acres ot
virgin prairie was put under cultivation and at least five carlo, 'a of livestock were purchased wlit e'no purchases would have been possible, as,a
result of opera.'ous, of thc Manitoba
rural credits scheme, according to
details, contained in the first annual
report of this branch of governmental
activity.;! The full value of the work
of these societies will not be sccn-ior
a few years. Some of them did not
begin lending until the spring season-
had passed so that their respective
credits do not represent the total
which it is anticipated a normal season would show. There is every indication that some of these societies
granting limited lines of credit will
require much greater ones the coming
year. Twenty new charters have been
granted in all of which "districts it is
expected lending will begin in thc
spring. ���   .  -
In assisting individual farmers to
increase thc production of their land,
these societies are increasing the general prosperity of the province. The
loans made have enabled many farmers to extend their operations in a
manner'otherwise impossible, and tlic
effect of their-work wilh bc cumulative. ���*;���'���

him and now he can sleep all night,
"I am very grateful to Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Dodd's Kidney Pills havc been curing kidney ills for over twenty-hve

Alberta Rancher Disposes of Holdings for Half a Million Dollars
The purchase of a cattle ranch of
11,500 acres, near High River, Alberta, together with three thousand head
of stock for- half a million dollars a

Twenty years ago, ;withoitt "capital,
he came to Alberta, and by his energy and/ability, has succeeded in buiTt-
ing up a great beef producing ranch

pounds. Thc acquirement of thc
above described property will place
Mr. Maclcay first among thc great
ranchers of Alberta."      ��� ..
But who will say that the opportunities for success in Alberta today
for the man with energy and ability
arc not-so-good ns thcy were twenty
years' ago?

Give "California Syrup   of   Figs"   if
cross, sick, peevish, constipated
Look -back at your childhood days.
Remember the "dose"! mother insisted on���castor oil, calomel, cathartics.
How you hatecUthem, how you fought
against taking thetm -
Wilh our children it's different.
Mothers who cling to the old form
of physic siniply donU realize what
they do. . Thc children's revolt is
well founded. ��� Their tender little
"insides'-'are injured by thcm.
lf your "child's stomach, liver and
bowels need cleansing, give only delicious "California Syrup of Figs.'^ Its
action is positive, but gentle. Millions
of mothers keep this harmless "fruit
laxative" handy; they know children
love lo take it; that it never fails to
clean thc liver and bowels and
rink on'sweeten thc stomach, and"that a teaspoonful given today saves a sick
child tomorrow.
Ask your druggist for a bottle of
"'California Syrup of Figs," which has
full directions for babies, children of
all ages and for grown-ups plainly on
each bottle. Beware of counterfeits
sold here. - Sec that it is made - by
"California Fig Syrup Company." Refuse any other kind with contempt.���

by a mob having recourse to their
revolvers, but Avere eventually overpowered. They fought their way out
however, and to.ok refuge in a friendly sheik's house, subsequently reaching the railway, boarded a goods

Go To Sunday School Day
April 13th, 1919
The great interest now being
taken in the work of Religious
Education is a sign that a new day
has come. The Government of
British Columbia has proclaimed
April 13th as a special "Go to Sunday School Day" to be observed by
all creeds and classes. Leaders in
church and state realize that there
can be no satisfactory Reconstruction in community and national
lift?, which is not accompanied by
a moral and religious development
of the people, especially among the
young. "Under the caption "Tbe
Snnday School aud the New Day"
an interesting program has been
arranged by the Provincial Cooperative Committee of Religious
Education. A direct challenge
will be given to the "Home," to
the "Boys and Girls" and to the
"Leaders." Tt -is expected' that
each."school -will aim toliave acom;
' plefce attendance of regular members,, and also secure many who do
3iot,afc"presenfe attend. '    "

SAYS an Eastern writer: "The Province of British
Columbia is the wonderland of Canada." It is a country in
itself, almost a nation. Extending- from the western plains of
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 thirty^seven more square miles than
the combined area pf the coast States of California, Washington
and Oregon, It is larger than the total acreage of the United
Kingdom, Trance, 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
Watson Griffin, in a valuable, work recently jmblished 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"establish-
ing 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, over 4600 miles injshipping'to Sydney,
Australia, and nearly a thousand miles to Singapore, "he states..
Millions of Acres of Arable Land
"- There.are^in British Columbia:mil.lions~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 and mountains. [There.are wonderful
deposits of silver, copper, lead. Coal of high, quality- is .widely
distributed oh mainland and islands; and. important-deposits of,
iron ore[has been discovered, The wealth of the British Columbia
fisheries cannot be estimated. ..\,
Real Future Manufacturing
X-- In touching on.these well-known facts regarding.this Province
Mr.= Griffin admits their, existence and: their. importance but con- .
tends that the real .future of the? province is manufacturing..",'

\lumbia1 will .^iye employment!, to..a ,large-population,/' he states,-
-''but. one of the most important, industries of the future will be
..manufacturing,.  With numerous .water-powers," great supplies'-of
, coal, all imetalhc ^minerals; and immense forests of finest timber, no
country is better .suited for irotirmakiug and wood-working industries,-while the climate is especially adapted, to the manufacture
