the Salmon River district waa
made recently, when J. H. McDonald of Rossland, disposed of

veins as the Electric Point mine
near Northport, WaBh'., and the
Emerald- mine afe Sheep Creek,
B.C.. about midway between these
two well-known properties.
Mr. McDonald secured tho property a few years ago and has carried on'a course,of development
work since thafe time, opening up
a .large body of high-grade silver-
lead ore. The. strike -of the vein
being east and west and .dipping tb
the- south. The vein has been
opened up by a series of open cross
cuts for a distance of six thousand
feet, which shows a well-defined
lode laying between walls of echisfe
and lime.
There are two distinct veins on
fehe property and two crosscut, tnn-
nels have been driven to tap the
ore body. The new company has
confined their development work'
to the No. 2 tunnel, which will
tap the ore body "afe considerable
depfeh when completed.
The ore is characteristic to the.
Sheep Creek camp, carrying good
values in gold and a good percentage lead predominating. The lode;
which is over 100 feet ih width,
contains a vein-filling of sulphide
ore, carrying values in gold and a
good percentage in sulphuric acid.

heroic efforts of our people, our country is safe and our cause is victorious.
To build upon the foundation of lite

Tammany Against Bolshevism
New Vork, N.Y. ��� Tammany has
now come out against bolshevism.
On Charies F. Murphy's motion, thc
executive committee has adoplcda resolution dedicating thc organization
to the "active and energetic conduct
of a non-partisan campaign for America and American institutions," and all
democratic headquarters will, be asked
to promote this end, under direction
of a special committee. Tammany
declares that the rights of free assemblage, free speech and a free press

May  Have  Found .Special  Favor  In
The   Militant German's
..London, England.���There is at Vil-
vordc, near Brussels, a monument to
thc    great    Englishman    and martyr,
William   Tyndale,   translator   of   the
Bible.    On   its low  flat  base  are  inscriptions   in    English,    French    and
Flemish, and the German invaders of
Belgium, with their known propensity
for vandalism, havc had ample opportunity during four years of occupation
to damage or remove the monument-
On the other hand, Tyndale, by virtue
of lus peculiar association with  Gcr-j
many, may have found'special  favor'j
in  thc militant German's eyes.
William   Tyndale   was   a   native   of:
Gloucester, but his sympathy with the
new learning .aroused-suspicion',  and
he removed to London.      Finding it, |
however, impossible  to  complete his j
traslation of the New Testament and!
the Pentateuch, upon which his fame!
vvilh   posterity  iests,  lie  removed  to!
Hamburg and later to  Cologne,-and |
hence became identified with the Continent,    lie began his printing in .1.528
in the very city which now forms the
headquarters of  lhe  British  army of
occupation on the Rhine.       -
Following "tl:e signing of the armistice,  inquiry  was  set  on   foot  as   lo
fate of the monument, and it now ap-
. pears that it shows no signs of nnile-
; rial, injury .7    Owing, however,-to.thc

Provision is made under thc bill
for revocation, of certificates of naturalization granted in Canada where
such certificates have been obtained
by fraud, where the.holder has shown
by act or. speech to bc disaffected or
disloyal to His Majesty; where the
holder during the war unlawfully traded.with the enemy; where he has continued lo reside abroad for not less
than seven years and not maintained
connection wilh His Majesty's dominions, where, according to the law of
thc slate at war with His Majesty, the
holder remains a subject of that state;
finally where thc continuance of the
certiiicate is not conducive to the public good. Provision is also made for
the naturalization of persons who
served "wilh lhc British forces in the

it might stand over for another session.

of the United Kingdom.

Cannot Defy The Law
Defence of Arrests at Winnipeg Given
Out to Various Labor
, Men
Ottawa.���In reply to a telegram
from Secretary Hamilton, of the Toronto Metal Trades Council, with re-
,-.,.,,, ,   , .. ison used about one barrel pei   ycai;
One of thc features, of the movement,  .       ., ,      , .    ,
1 but  there wcrc also bran and  shorts
to be considered,  and    the  price  of
wheat was reflected on oats and bar-
j ley', so that meat, milk, eggs, etc , all
reflected it also.
j He believed tliat the open market
I for wheat would be better than the
present closed market. Grain men
had been having conferences in Ottawa with ; the. government, and an
effort was being made lo reach an
agreement. The .grain exchanges
were very anxious for the open market, but the farmers, as represented
by Messrs. Menders and Maharg,
wanted a fixed market.
His belief was if the fixed price was
removed thc price of wheat would
drop to normal. He considered thc
present price fictitious ancl believed it
would drop lo $1-50 or $2.00. Hc gave
reasons for this. Australia had aboul
117,000,000 bushels of millablc wheat
and Great' Britain had bought a large
portion of this, which was being sent
to India ancl Egypt. At present thc
United States had begun garnering
the winter wheat, which'was. the largest crop in its history.
Of the 1919 crop the United States
would have from 370,000,000 bushels
to 400,000,000. Last year's export was
200,000,000. 'This year Canada would
have probably from 250,000,000 to
260,000,000 bushels, leaving 200,000,000
for export.
Thus'1 there would be about 600,-
000,000 bushels for export from thc
two countries.

that ' the Sinn
on the wane,
(having failed to accomplish any of its

WHEN it comes to the creation of evening
gowns and wraps, fanciful and all as
fashion permits them to be, the clothes
artist finds himself limited by convention. But
when it comes to conceiving new beauties for
milady to spend her leisure hours in, then may
the clothes artist translate his dreams without
change into tangible things. '
He may use such delectable mediums as
glove silk, dazzling white satin, cloudy chiffons
and georgettes, and the most exquisite things?
thai come off the lace looms. His color mood
just now is in the yellows and the greens, and
the yellow-greens like canary and citron.
Again he contrarily expresses himself in the
lurid reds.
mes arc most whimsical of all.    Imagine
anything tailored going^nto the boudoir and
���looking appropriate.    Yet, most tailored is
the petticoat that is topped off with the primly
pretty short negligee.     And still it looks the
boudoir part, doesn't it?
But lace, exquisite Irish, perishable Venise,
enchanting Chantilly, that is the stuff that lingerie dreams are made of. Fancy a coat of
Chantilly, will you, completing the airy-fairy
picture of a nightie madc of chiffon? And
what negligee could help being beautiful for a
cape of wonderful laciness.
So when she goes away for the precious
respite between activities, let milady indulge
in tangible dreams.

One hears of the affection of wild
creatures''and their devotion' to one
another, sven unto death. -This is undoubtedly true in many instances, bul
to my mind more wild animals die
through displaying bad temper than
through gentler sensations. I have
seen a grand .ten-point black-tailed
"deer brought down while bullying a
game little spike buck; 1 have lain
on the edge of deep pools and watched a' surly pike ram his head into a
net while attempting ,to intimidate a
big bull trout. Moreover, I once saw
a"grizzly thai died because he had
lost his temper -when a man approached as llic bear ,-was eating, and I was
once an active participator in thc
death of a lynx that would hare escaped unscathed had it not stopped
to claw up a dog that il could have
outrun on three legs.    .
On the oilier baud, there arc many
stories of affection. Once 1 was an
interested'observer of a she-bear putting a fast-climbing Dane up a Ircc
and keeping him there -while her twin
offspring climbed neighboring saplings, and were, in her opinion safe.
I havc been told of devoted trout that'
committed deliberate suicide because
their males had taken the hook. I
know of enormous bull walruses off
the coast of British Columbia who
personally .see to it lhat even'the
smallest pup.is driven into the safety of the black waters when danger
threatens. Then there are tlic talcs
of the male salmon .guarding thc
spawning beds from buccaneering
trout while llic female salmon deposit
eggs; ancl sailing men have told mc
of mother whales sheltering calves

his chief annoyances were the self-

and ambitious bucks, keeping his'band
of ewes in proper subjection, and
avoiding the two-legged creatures
who crawled so clumsily about the
rocks and frightened one with sharp
noises, followed by high-pitched
whines- Once, when he had heard
lhc sharp sound and did not hear the

Around behind a distant shoulder
of rocks a .man who had been fruitlessly hunting all afternoon had turned toward his valley camp, warned
by. the lengthening shadows of late afternoon. He licgrd a distant clatter
of a rolling stone on loose shale and
paused a moment before dropping to
his knees and creeping noiselessly toward lhc point from whence the clatter came. The big buck, high-headed
and watchful, but raging and foaming
with auger, was just stepping down
toward'Mire impudent young male
with every intention of inflicting
merited chastisement when the rifle
cracked. The animal turned ancl fled,
blindly and fast, half stunned by thc

burned his interior. He ran instinctively upward while his band also
scattered to the* heights by other
routes, and the white man, breathless
and panting, followed the blood drops
that marked the path of his prize. He
followed to lhc snow line and beyond,
his hunter's soul gladdened by thc
crimson clashes on the white mantle'.
Ancl al la'sl, a half mile from where
he had raised the band, and a thousand feel above the spot, he came
upon lhc bighorn chief's body, half

Schcidemann, Ebcrt and Von Brock-
dorff-Rantzaii had made it impossible
for them, at least, to sign the peace
treaty.' Thcy have assured tlicir parliament and people that'Uiey will not
sign. Thcy have ^denounced the
treaty in thc most unmeasured terms.
Thcy have left themselves no defence
in their own political bailiwick if now
thcy turn around ancl attach tlicir signatures to the document at Versailles.
Judgccf by general standards, their political future would bc killed past all
hope of resurrection by such an act.
It may be.that these standards do not
apply in Germany at present. Wc have
too often in these recent years seen
Germans changc^from arrogance and
defiance lo cringing obscquiotisess,
and back again, lo assume that on any
subject thcy hold themselves lo the
same stability of mind that is expected of nun of other nations. Our soldiers learned too well that a German
could cry "Kamcrad" in the most cowed and abject manner and in an instant become a daring and treacherous savage and thrust a knife into the
back of tjte man who had trusted him.
We saw thcm mourn like humane persons over lhc devastation which thcy
had wrought to Belgium and l-'rancc
had brought to Belgium and l-'rancc

States had their promise lo cease submarine lawlessness, and cvery lime
that thcy broke lhcir word thcy could
comc back wilh explanations thai appeared to bc entirely satisfactory both
to their spokesmen ancl lo lhc German people generally. It is conceivable that this peculiar quality may enable lhe present leaders suddenly to
reverse themselves and not only sign

Evangeline Returns To Grand Pre
(1) Evangeline's Well
(2) Philippe Hebert's Statue of Evangeline,
What lover of poetry has not
dreamed of visiting the places made
immortal in song? And what song
has roused this longing more intensely than the story of the gentle Acad:
ians and their Great Banishment?
Many have realized this ambition, for
Nova Scotia is easy to reach and
each succeeding summer sees more
hundreds making the pilgrimage to
"The Acadian land, on tiie shores of
the Basin of Minas,     "'
Distant, secluded, still, the little village of Grand Pre."
There ihey find the meadows, dikes
and orchards of which Longfellow
sang, and thcy try lo.retrace the action of the poem by using as a guide
lhe still remaining well whicli the
poet described as
"Farther  down,  on   the  slope  of  the
hill, was
Bucket, fastened   with   iron, and near
it a trough for the horses."
The piece of ground at Grand Pre
on which is the well of Evangeline, together with the old willows, has been
bought by thc Canadian Pacific foi
llie purpose of preserving it for posterity.
Before he died last year, Philippe
Hcbcrt, the greatest of French-Canadian' sculptors, was "engaged on a
statue representing Evangeline leaving lhe'1 land of her childhood and
looking back in  sorrow-
Philippe Hebcrt was himself an
Acadian and, although a perfectly
happy exile in Montreal, entered inio
the spirit of the poem as no othe'-
sculptor could- Thc .model of his
slaluc has been purchased by the
Canadian  Pacific, who havc commis
sioncd Philippe's son Henri Ilcbcit,
also a distinguished sculptor, to complete it, lifc size in bronze, to be
erected beside the famous well.
Thus will be added one more'attraction to a land full of attractions
for artists, devotees of romance aud
matter-of-fact sportsmen. The artists
find an inexhauslable supply of subjects ranging from many mile-long
vistas of apple blossoms to uncouth
but picturesque fishcrfolk; the romantically inclined find a land of legends
and sleepy beauty;- the sportsmen find
fishing and hunting such as is seldom
equalled and never excelled.

Are Seeking to Regain Grip on World
The German dyestuff plants, all of
which were unharmed by the war, are
seeking to regain Germany's grip on
thc world trade, according to Major
T. W. Sill, of the.United Slates Chemical Warfare Service, who has.just
returned from the occupied Teuton
territory on both banks of the Rhine,
where are situated thc most important of thc country's chemical strongholds. Major Sill was a member'of
thc Interallied Commission appointed
to investigate thc production of war
materials in the German .chemical
plants in the areas. occupied by the
American, British, French and "Belgian forces.
Major Sill found the dye factories
undamaged by tlie air raids of the
allies and any other results of the
war, y.'ith machinery, in perfect condition" and .with an adequate personnel of science experts and of trained
operatives ready on the ground-to
turn their "entire activities into the
manufacture of colors and mcdicinals.
"Germany starids today,"- said the
Major, "practically as efficient as ever,
because she had all'of her man-power
registered and classified in accordance
with her pre-war-system,-and was.
"able from the outset to avoid thc mistakes- , made, particularly by British
and French, and by retaining for these
plants thc highest type of trained labor to .insure maximum- efficiency -of";
operation./. This..labor-has.b"cc"n-carefully,conserved- throughout .the war
.- "The Germans utilize to full'capacity thc equipment already .on hand

Lost City Discovered
The Forgotten People That Once
Lived in New Mexico
A lost city of 20,000 homes has been
found in a great canyon barely forty
miles from lhc city of Santc Fc, N.M.
It is reputed to he. thc first known city
of the Cochili tribes of Pueblo Indians
of the Southwest. The place is called
Kito dc los Frijoles, or Tyu-on-yi, and
is one of the world's wonders. Here
in little caves in the. sides of gigantic
cliffs, dwelt the prehistoric cliff dwellers of America in communal dwellings that were almost immune from
attack by cither man or thc giant
beasts of thc stone age.
The great ceremonial cave of Kiva.
where thc people's councils evidently
assembled, is located two-thirds of the
way up the side of a cliff, in a cave
inaccessible save, with ladders. The
temple is carved out of thc solid rock,
partly by nature and partly by hand.
Little is known about the forgotten
people that once lived in this beautiful
retreat in Ncw Mexico, although
many of thc symbols of a race that
was arc visible in the. interiors of the
recently discovered home*.
Height Of Bird Flights
The Height at Whicli Various Migrating Birds Are Accustomed
to Fly
In spite of their difficult and exacting task, a few airmen have found opportunity to observe and record thc
height at which various migrating
birds are accustomed to fly. Thus,
from French soldiers of the air it is
learned that swallows have been observed to maintain an average altitude
of 700 yards, and wild ducks one of
1,800 yards, and that green plovers
have been seen at a height of 2,150
yards. Incidentally it may bc mentioned that thc ducks were moving at
a speed of sixty-five and a half miles
an hour when flying upward and sixty-
nine miles an hour when flying hori-
zotally. Another aviator, when flying
at 9,500 feet, saw swallows high above
him. And another, v.ho made his observations at a height of 6,000 feet
during a heavy bombardment, with
anti-aircraft shells bursting all about
him, says that hc saw 200 golden plovers, perhaps driven higher than usual
by the fact that the vicinity was an
unpleasant, hell to cross.

Co-Operative Horse Sales
Are Proving Very Successful in Saskatchewan
The series of co-operative horse
sides instituted this year in Saskatchewan havc been so successful that tli ca'
will probably become one of the annual events of the province- Plans
are already under way to hold a much
larger scries in  1920.
The number of horses raised in the
province   is   steadily   increasing   each
year, and the object of the co-operative sales is-to cultivate    thc    home
market, by bringing buyers from those
districts.where insufficient horses for.
local    needs :irc   produced to    those
where a surplus is-raised.--   This is
done"by-means of sales held.in diffcr-
-cnt parts of the province.:. Thc first
.scries-of sales, which'took place this
year,  were  on ��� the  whole   successful,
although held.rather late in thc season.   . From   thirty 'to   sixty"   horses
"were offered,  for sale at each,   place.
��� Some of- the" contributors evidently
looked upon the sales as a-means of.

Why Can't I
Get To Sleep?
Thousands of people all over the
country ask this question., but still
continue to loss night after night on a
sleepless bed, and it is impossible for
them lo get a full night's refreshing
Some constitutional disturbance,
worry or disease has so debilitated
and irritated the nervous system lhat
it cannot bc quitcned except by the
pernicious usc of opiates or narcotics.
Or again, you have heart palpitation,
ancl sensation of sinking, a feeling
you are going to die, or perhaps you
wake, up in your sleep feeling as
though you wcrc about to choke or
smother, and the only way you can
get relief is lo sit up in bed.
To all who suffer in this way, Milburn's Heart: and Nerve Pills offer an
inestimable boon. Thcy bring back
the much-needed night's rest by improving the tone of the nerves,
strengthen the heart, enriching thc
blood and making thc whole organization act in harmony���then you sleep
as peaceful as a child.
Mrs. Jas. Latimer, 39 Lcinstcr St.,
St. John, N.B., writes: "At night 1
could not sleep. I had to sit up in
bed, my heart beat so fast, and when
I walked upstairs I would get all out
of breath. A friend recommended Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills, and
after using two boxes, I can sleep all
night and am not out of breath aftcr
walking." ,.

The method of review will largely
bc determined by the grade of thc
6chool. Thc primary teacher can use
the material which shows love to the
Heavenly Father; the junior teacher,
that which teaches about God; thc intermediate teacher, thc marks of a
Christian; the senior and adult teacher, the fundamentals of faith and
practice. As illustrative of thc method for the senior and adult, note
thc following:
Lesson I���God who was before all
things is the cause of all things. Thc
universe came into being by thc will
and act of the divine personality. Man
himself is a creation of God, not an
evolution. All things continue to bc
by the preserving power of God- This
great being is the Father of all who
believe on Jesus Christ. Wc should
give him our undivided affection and
trust hinpfor food and raiment.
Lesson 11.���Jesus, thc Son of God
[and LsraclVMessiah, is thc lamb who
jborc our sins. Out of God's love he
' was given, and "whosoever bclievcth
Ion him shall not perish, but havc everlasting life."
Lesson 111.���Jesus Christ rose from
thc dead, liis resurrection guarantees:
1. The integrity of lhc Scriptures
(I.  Cor.   15:20).
2. The reality of "the divine person
(Horn. l.:-l).
3. The sufficiency of Christ's atoning sacrifice (Rom. 4:25).
4. Lifc ancl immortality of thc believer (I. Cor. 15:20).
Lesson I.V.���On the clay of Pentecost thc Holy Spirit was poured out
upon the disciples, baptizing thcm into
thc one body of which Christ is lhc
head. Thc gift of thc Spirit peculiarly qualified the disciples to bc his
Lesson V.���God created man in His
likeness and image and placed him at
the head of creation.
Lesson \'I.���Through thc fall of.
Adam sin has passed upon all men,
bringing death, physical ancl spiritual.
Lesson Y1I.���Lost men arc saved
absolutely by God's grace. His grace
mcans his kindness toward ���men
through Jesus Christ.
Lesson VIJ I.���At thc preaching of
Jonah thc people of Nineveh repented.
Because, of their repentance, God's
wrath was turned aside. Those who
repent of their sins and cry'to God
for 'mercy through Jesus Christ shall
bc saved.
Lesson IX.���Jt is only through
faith- that man can- please God.
Through faith the mightiest .victories
[have been wrought. The grand exemplar upon. whom, faith can-rest, .is
Jesus Christ..
Lesson N.���The "grand incentive lo
obedience is love to God. . Calling
Christ'Lord'will not answer for disobedience tp-His. will. Hearing" and

the solid rock. Such'' building can
never-be "destroyed'by flood.or storm.

Reconstruction Of
Devastated Homes
Once Rebuilt, They Will Need to Be
��� Paris, France���-Much is being said
just at present about lhc reconstruction and reorganization of the devastated districts, yet no one is perhaps
displaying a more useful activity in
this direction than Mr. Morain, Prefect of the Somme. During thc critical ancf anxious hours of thc fight for
Amiens, Mr. Morain ..revealed a remarkable firmness of character, and
he has now turned his energy and
organizing qualities to the great task
of assuring thc reconstruction of
Picardy, which is under his administration. Whilst studying the best way
of setting to work, Mr. Morain was
struck by the undeniable fact that,
once the destroyed homes have been
rebuilt, thcy will need to bc refurnished, and hc conceived the idea of
organizing at Amiens an exhibition of
simple furniture and of all the objects
necessary for thc temporary reconstruction of a home.
This idea was soon put into execution, and thc Place Longucvillc has
been transformed into a complete village in wood, each building of which
���church, mairie, school, and farmhouses���can bc taken to pieces, a fact
which will assuredly greatly interest
all the visitors.
In thc great hall of the fine old
Museum of Picardy concerts and fetes
will bc held, whilst another largc
room of the same building is now a
Theatre des Cabotins-���the celebrated
Punch and Judy show of Amiens ���
which is renowned in France as the
Guignol of Lyons.
The organizers of this exhibition
I have been continually hampered by
thc transport crisis, still extremely severe in France. ���Nevertheless, an important, number of large furnishing
firms took'part in this scheme, and
each day Mr. Morain and his collaborators  found  ncw adherents.
This exhibition only comprises the
products of French firms, which were
asked to exhibit objects characterized
by'usefulness, .solidity, cheapness and
good taste. If lliey realized these
conditions, the exhibitors were almost
assured of doing an important business, for thc Picardy peasants are for
thc most part well-to-do, and are quite
j willing to bti3r furniture, and also
wooden houses, sheds, stables, and
granaries, whicli will enable thcm to
tide over the timc until their former
homes arc rebuilt.
The exhibition at Amiens will
doubtless be appreciated as much by
the inhabitants of the towns as by
the peasants, for it will enable thcm
to acquire, at . comparatively low
prices, all thc.objects they need for
thc reconstruction of their homes,
whilst unconsciously obeying a' general  .artistic    direction :-which'   thc��
Y.M.C.A. Notes
"Y" Hut Should Be Preserved and
Copied in China
That the "Y" hut of war-time days
in France is a good thing which
should be preserved and copied in
China-is thc decision arrived at at a
conference of some 69 Chinese Y.M.
C.A. secretaries Who: were appointed
to work among the hundreds of thousands of Chinese coolies employed as
laborers in France. It was the first
timc that any of them had come in
contact with thc work of thc association, and they have been so impressed by thc work accomplished that
thcy have ��� decided to carry on the
work of the association, which now
reaches chiefly the higher classes,
among the coolies and others. China
was well represented at the conference. Delegates came from widely
separated parts of thc republic, such
as Manchuria, Shanking, Kiangson,
Chi-Li, Hupch and many other places.

Merchants Bank
Makes Progress
Net   Earnings   Greater, And   Total
Assets   Show   Very   Satisfactory
Gains���Many New Branches
- The annual report of thc Merchants
Bank of Canada, just issued for the'
ycar ended April 30th, 1919, is the
most satisfactory in the history of this
bank. Not only wcrc net earnings
greater than "in the previous year, but
deposits, both interest bearing and
non-interest bearing, current loans,
quickly available assets and total assets all show very satisfactory increases. Net earnings increased from
$1,236,000 to $1, 383,569. Total deposits in Canada now stand at over $138,-
000,000, as compared with $113,000,000
for the previous ycar. Quickly available assets stand at $62,750,000, a gain
of over $5,000,000 as compared with
the previous ycar. Current loans in
Canada amount to $95,874,000, a gain
of almost $20,000,000 over the figures
for the previous ycar and furnish a
striking illustration of the large part
the Merchants Bank cis .playing in the
business needs of thc country. Total
assets of $166,725,000, compared with'
$141,000,000 last year.
Other evidence pf progress were
shown by thc fact that since thc close
of-the war the Merchants Bank has
opened many ncw branches and sub-
branches. It is thus doing everything
possible to provide adequate banking
facilities to thc country,- and at the
same time absorb its officers now returning, from overseas-' Sir-H. Montagu Allen, .the President of the bank,
in'his address' reviewed the balance
sheet and spoke of the death of Andrew A.- Allan, one of the directors.
General manager D. C. Macar'ow referred to thc satisfactory business
which had been transacted during thc
year, .and the promoting outlook for

Profit In Feeding Lambs
Feeding of Young Lambs Is st Paying
The Dominion Experimental Farm
at Morden, Manitoba, recently sold
six lamps, weighing- 380 pounds, at
24 cents a.pound, or an average price
of. $15.20 per lamb. The oldest lamb,
which was born January 20, weighed
over 80 pounds"at thc time of sale.
This sale emphasizes what many
farmers in Western Canada have: long
ago learned, namely, that the feeding
of young lambs is a paying proposition, yielding profits.as large .as in
any. other phase of farming in the
Thc above weights were obtained
without any, special pampering. The
mothers were very ordinary ewes,
descended a few years ago from as
poor a type of animal as could be
found anywhere on the range. During
the fall and winter thcy were given
considerable pea and bean straw, together with culled peas and beans-
Thcy preferred this to any other feed
and thrived upon it. After the lambs
were born tlie ewes wcrc given a
little bran, oats and ensilage, in addition to the hay previously given- The
lambs soon learned to cat these feeds,
and in three months reached the
weights mentioned.
This experiment is quoted because
it shows what is possible along these
lines. Many farmers have obtained
as good or better results, and there is
a good market for all'the'lamb's that
can be produced in this manner.

From Side Line
To Main Industry
The poultry industry hitherto considered a side line in Western Canada
is gradually creeping to a position of
first importance, and one on which
farmers can rely to bring them steady
returns. Last year Saskatchewan
farmers received over $3,000,000 from
this side line. In the past most of the
farmers have, contented themselves
with raising poultry for their own
needs only and have not paid much
attention to their stock. But there are
now signs of a greater interest in this
phase of farming, and with them will
comc greater production, for no country is better suited for poultry raising.

What Empire Meant
At the Call of War to Fight for and
to Save the Motherland
It is our national.characteristic to
make little of great things. No British soldier may be found to confess
that he "did his bit" (pedestrian and
humdrum phrase!) for.any great or
noble motive. He will always assign
to some cheap and unworthy motive
what should bc ascribed lo the pure
flame of an exalted patriotism. We
do not "gusli." But in our habitual
reticence and deliberate self-deception
wc often injure our own great cause.
An instinct io frown .upon a succes-
sio of military displays as something
hysterical and even tedious .may be
sound enough'. But wc cannot, and
should not forget that at'the call of
war men rushed froni the,Dominions
lo fight-for and lo save tlic Motherland. This was the. climax of all that
empire means, a confusion which our
enemies never expected, a triumph, of
race and character winch we scarcely
yet appreciate' at its true worth.- ���

It was their inability to reach the
real source of catarrh and bronchitis
that caused the medical profession to
drop liquid cough medicines and
adopt "Catarrhozone" instead. This
wonderful inhaler provides a method
of breathing into the lungs certain
rare medicinal vapors which are so
healing and comforting as to entirely
banish coughs, catarrh and throat

The most wonderful thing about
Catarrhozone is, that no matter where

Baroness de la Roche, a widely-known
French aviatrix, driving the small biplane in which the late Jules Vedrines

an altitude of 15,700 feet. Reports, of
her flight have been recognized by the
French Aero club, and she is given
the record for the height attained by
a woman flier. The level she rcched
is over 1,000 feet higher than the best

Preventing Thc Growth
Of Cast Iron
This Characteristic Believed to Be
Due to Internal Oxidation
Amongst thc fascinating problems
which make engineering, science at
once a most exacting and a most
fruitful study the characteristic behaviour df metals under varying conditions provides many curious cases.
For example, grey cast iron grows
appreciably in volume when exposed
to high .temperature. This characteristic, which causes .much trouble in
cast dies, valve scatings ahd other
parts, is believed to be due to internal
oxidation caused by the penetration
of hot gases into the metal. A remedy recently suggested in England is
lo eliminate free graphite, from ' the
surface of the 'metal, this being the
cause of its porosity. Successful 'results have been obtained by annealing
the parts for several days in iron Tust
at a temperature of from 1,650 to 1,830
degrees' fahrenheit.

and 'may .be adulterated with liquid

Thc latter, however, mut not bc applied to the foliage, but only on 'the
soil about the plains.

Children Go to Land for Summer to
Earn to Buy Thrift Stamps
"Get a stake out of Canada."
This is the new slogan of thc school
children of the West. For five months
through the schools, the stores, the
banks, the offices, they have done
wonders "getting a slake in Canada,"
as the slogan was.
They    did this buying    Thrift and
War-Savings stamps with their spare :
nickels and quarters.
Today, following a campaign
launched by the War-Savings'committee of the West, they are literally getting their stake out of Canada. Thcy
are planting gardens, working on
farms, raising live st.ock, and produce,
and piling up savings for themselves
by buying Thrift and War-Savings
stamps- with the proceeds.
Though the schools arc-closed,
though Thrift clubs havc temporarily
been disbanded by members losing7
touch with their organization as they
go about their summer activities, the
children of-Western Canada are learning thc thrift lesson just as llioi-
"Getting a stake out of Canada" is
trebly a duty. Besides forming a ncsl-
egg for the "stake-getter and helping
finance Canada's rc-establishmcut activities." it increases production and
brings thc day of beforc-the-war conditions nearer. Every loyal little:

To Employers
Have you any Austrians, Germans or other alien enemies working for you?
Has a returned Canadian, able
to fill an Austrian's job, applied
for it?
Have you turned down the returned soldier?
If you answer yes to any of
these questions you are not doing
your national duty. It is up to
every employer of labor to get rid
of this Red element and replace it
by a Canadian. Perhaps you think
yon do not owe your existence to
any single Canadian soldier. You
do owe it and everything you have
to the Canadians and other British
and Allied soldiers collectively.
Get away from the idea that you
may save five cents a day by keeping a foreigner on tho job. You
owe him notliing,'but you owe the
soldier everything. Perhaps you
have replaced a large number of
alien enemies 'that you admittedly
had to hire in war time to keep
going, but you haven't done your
duty until you have rid of every
alien of his job if a Canadian
applies for it.

Orchids and Mignonette
A woman lived in a garden once,
On a quiet village street:
Where the grass  was   green   with   the
tender rains
And shaded by elms from the heat:
Where primrose and daisy and mignonette
Grew riotously at her feet.
But the woman who heard of the  jungle
Where strange young orchids grow.
(Why women will do these foolish things,
Only God in his wisdom can know.)
But���she left her garden and took the
That leads where the wise don't go.
Oh, yes, she found tjje orchids,
But women don't ever forget.
And she dreams in the heat of the jungle
Of a garden with clean rain wet,
And over the scentless orchids
Drifts the odor of mignonette!
