Whereupon I explained to him curi

another distinguished Canadian that
evening, aind( wouli try to induce him
to make the necessary arrangements
for occupying the vacant space by
Lord Strathcona. Leacock listened to
this tvith strained attention. On rising
to reply, he disregarded the points
made by the other speakers, and said:
"Whilst I am deeply grateful to Mr.
Burgin for his- thoughtful arrange

FIGHT MINE FIRES WITH MUD
Experience Has Shown That Is as
Practical a Method as Any
Fighting fires in mines is a slow,
tedious job and since the dawning of
mining has been considered almost a
hopehess undertaking. Rich mines In
many parts of the' world have been
burning for generations. Underground
fires no longer are considered un
quenchable. In the Butte district a
process of fire figiting has been de
veloped by a mining compaoy which is
salvaging an ore body of tremendous
extent. Fires that have been burning
for 15 years in three connecting mines
are being smothered under 1,000,000
tons of mud.

Denatured alcohoi is grain alcohol
made unfit for use as a beverage.
Completely denatnred alcohol is made
by adding 10 gallons of wood alco
hol and a half gallon of bennine to
100 gallons of ethyl alcohol. This
is free from government tar and may
be bought by any one for use as fuel
The denaturing must be done when
the alcohol is produced and in~ bonded
wa-ehouses used exclusively for thQ
pwypose and for storing denatured ail
coliol, and is done Under the super
vision of the government. The' grain
alcohol may be made from grain, corn,
potatoes or similarly starchy products,
but the conditions under which it must
be produced makeit impracticable ex
