Its   Victims    Are    Largely    Among
Weak, Anaemic People
In the epidemic of la grippe, or
influenza, that has swept over Canada, in common with the rest of the
world, it has been noticeable that its
earliest victims were thc thin-blooded
anaemic people whose power of resistance is greatly weakened because
of the watery condition of their
blood. When a person is strong,
hearty, aide to enjoy a brisk coid
flay, chills and infections are set at
defiance. But when the system is
run    down,    when    the    nerves     are
critical times in the Scandinavian industrial world on account of the general uncertainty as tb economic developments through the reslitiflling of
the markets and lhe impossibility of
catering to thc needs of the eastern
Baltic markets. Man}- manufacturers, who normally arc great exporters with systematic chains of foreign
connections, arc now trading from
hand to mouth ignorant of whether
the nr.Xi month will bring a large
demand for their products or none.

The j-k'.t ar.nual report of the Union Bank of Canada, covering the year
ended November 30th, 19LS, shows
very striking progress. Possibly thc
first and most noticeable evidence ot
lhc growth of the-Bank is shown by
the $10,000,000 increase in total assets, which now amount to over $153,-
J00.000. As thc figures just quoted
cover 3,'war year, it is interesting to
note that during thc four years war
period the assets of this baiik have
increased by nearly $75,000,000. In
addition to thc largc increase in total
the communities served by its various branches. In 1917 current loans
amounted to less than $59,000,000, in
thc year just ended these totalled
over $74,000,000. The bank's conservatism is shown by marking down its
rcal estate holdings, other than bank
premises   to   $268,000;   its   mortgages
assets the bank shows-"gains    in  all  to $141,000; overdue debts to $327,000
other departments; net profits for tiie
ycar just ended amounting to $824,174
as compared with $763,463 for the
previous ycar. Thc net profits together with the balance of $106,000
carried forward from thc previous
ycar makes $930,000 available, for distribution. Dividends took $450,000, thc
sum of $200,000 was transferred to thc
rest account, $75,000 written off bank
premise.', account and-$10,000 contributed to thc officers' pension fund. In
addition to that various patriotic, and
charitable, appeals wcrc supported to
the extent of ncarlv $20,000, while
war tax took $50,000', leaving $126,000
to be carried forward.
A feature worthy of continent is
thc large note circulation of thc bank,
amounting to over $12,134,000 which
is one of the largest in proportion to
. capital of any Canadian bank and
furnishes striking evidence of thc
confidence placed iu the Union Bank
and of the profitable nature of its
connections. Interest hearing deposits stand at $68,437,000, ' while
non-interest bearing deposits amount
to $58,805,000. Total deposits amount
to $127,242,000 and show a gain of
$10,000,000 over thc figures for 1917.
and bank premises $1,237,000.

its most remarkable showing; these

Chrisliania, Norway. ��� It is reported that the Norwegian government will present its claim to Suitz-

the people strongly support it. The.
Norwegians discovered the islands in
the time of King Svcrrc Sigurdson,
iin 1200, and gave thc land the namc
of Svalbard of Cold Mountain, by
which name thcy have always been
known by tbe Norwegians. In 1600
thc Dutch found their way to these
islands and called them  Spitzbergen.
Norwegians assert that they havc
always carried on hunting, whaling
and fishing there to a greater extent
than any other nation and that thcy
havc worked thc mines and produced
coal for export. Thcy now have the
largest mining works there and Norway is geographically nearest to
them. Through thc last century this
country has repeatedly asserted ils
claim.to Spitzbergen as Norwegian
territory. As a seafaring nation accustomed to hard conditions of ��� life
thc Norwegians arc especially fit for
settling  there.

Make Her Export Position
The war stimulated the export
trade in Canadian live stock products
to a degree, deemed well nigh impossible five years ago. Exports of beef
increased 6795fA, of bacon and pork
products 571%. Total exports of live
stock products in the fiscal ycar ending March 31, 1918, were valued al
$172,7-13,081 as compared to $53,3-19,'-
119 in 1914.
Canada has the opportunity of
holding this trade and increasing it,
for our meat products Avon a splendid reputation in Europe during thc
war, aud Canada is in the position of
the favored nation.
The price of feed has been high,
and llic cost of producing live stock
has beeu correspondingly high. But
the market price of finished animals
bas also been high. The. price may
decline gradually, but the price of
feed will decline also, and tbe percentage of profit to tlic fanner should
thus remain about thc same. Indeed,
if tlic cost of feed declines first, the
profit, of the farmer will be increased.
1. E. Brcthonr of Burford. Ont.,
who won thc first prize for export
bacon hogs a! lhc winter fair at
Guelph, says that with the relative
prices of feed and bacon then pertaining, there  was a good profit.
"With standard k-ad at $.v a ton
aud hogs at $16, live weight, i make
a profit of over 20?r,'' said Mr. Brcthonr. "It is thc profit that counts,
not the selling price, and profit depends upon thc rdalion of the price
of feed to the market price of lhe
finished animal.''
Mr. Herbert Hoover, chief oi the-
United Slates food .administration,
who is at present in 'Europe investigating conditions at first band, cables
as follows:
"Every pound or pork products we
can export before next July, Europe
will need, and as soon as the. ini.ial
chaos of the sudden economic change
from war to armistice can bc overcome there -will be  over-demands."
Authorities sa3' that tbis demand in
thc case of beef, even more than that
of pork,  will  bc abnormal  for many
to the fact that Europe
Those feelings of .faiuApats, tfiosc
weak, "all gone" sinking sensations,
which come over some people from

not go unheeded.
They mean an extremely weakened
condition of the heart and a disordered nervous system.
When the system is in this condition there is no time for delay. One
fainting spell ma}r bc recovered from

may pass off, but thc next may bc

Those who arc tvise will start-taking Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills,
before their case becomes deep rooted and perhaps hopeless.
Thcy will act directly on the disordered heart aud weakened nervous
system and restore ��� them to full
strength  and  vigor.
Miss Mary McCoy, Algoma Mills,
Ont., writes:���"I was awfully troubled with fainting and weak spells, and
I could never get any doctor's medicines lo help me. One day a fiicnd
of mine was at thc house when J
took one of those spells, and shc got

Once  upon  a  time   the  body    became sick; and the pain was very severe.    One  after another its    members, said, "The cause is not in inc."
After careful examination the trouble
was located in the. appendix, and the
surgeon said, "It must be removed,"

Problem of Relations Between Delegates and Press is Delicate
Paris. ��� "Thc problem of thc relations between the peace delegates
und the press, that is, between thc
governments and the. public opinion,
is made particularly delicate," says
tlhc Temps, by the following considerations:
"Oa one hand, equality of treat- .
ment by press of all countries must
be assured. As thc United States and
Great Britain arc reluctant to im-.
pose, restrictions on their newspapers,
the only course is lo allow the wid-
est tolerance, to all.
"On the    other hand, it    would bc
harmful to  lay bare  to    tho    enemy
government  differences     of    opinion
which must inevitably arise in    discussions  between  delegations.      The.
very essence of every debate is    that
j contradictions    should    arise.      Such
j contradictions   will  assuredly   be   rc-
f concilcd, but it would bc very unfov-
i Innate that Germany should know thc
details day by day and seek to make'
capital out of them."

A Very Close Game
Phoenix Hockey team visited the
Greenwood Rink on Friday evening and proved victorious over the
local boys by a score of 2-0. With
Hugh Nelson back on tlie team the
Greenwood boys kept Phoenix
busy all through the game and it
was only when the last period was
half finished that tho visitors
opened the 'scoring. Greenwood
had the edge on their opponents
during the ?econd period aud had
not "Bones" sustained an injury
to his right shoulder, just before
the interval there was a chance
that the home team would have
been in the lead. Phoenix has a
well-balanced team, all last years
players being available this season.
Greenwood team includes four
players who were juniors last
season, but all of them show promise of developing into real good
stick-handlers and great credit^
due to every one on the team for
the fine showing they made against
such strong opponents. Another
game is arranged for Friday evening, Jan. 31st and the boys look
forward to a record crowd to boost
for them.

In a recent issue of the Piiuce
Rupert Weekly News the following
appeared. Evidently the writer
of this article does not know much
about the Boundary.
"There are persistent rumors
going around to the effect that the
Granby Company will develop tbe
copper deposits up the Ecstall
river. It is said that now that
the Phoenix smelter is closed the
plant will be moved from that town
to a point on the coast opposite, the
copper deposit and the smelter, and
town be built on salt water. It is
understood; that the company ah
ready has had a survey made of a
routa by which they can reach the
coast, which it is thought .-will- be
more conyient. than bringing, the
ore out by way of the Ej_.si.aih. Xo
matter what the location of the
smelter, it will be near enough to
Prince Rupert for tbin town to profit considerably by it.
