A Man's Business
is often judged by the character of his office
stationery. It need not be expensive, but
should be distinctive and executed in good
taste?readable type?careful composition
?good, clean presswork?proper use of dis
play, and many other things should be con
sidered, which give to stationery style and
distinction that adds 100 per cent, to its
value without increasing the cost one cent.
Our years of experience in the produc
tion of "quality" stationery and business
forms are at your service. ^

TRIBUTE TO THE
COMMON HOT CAKE
America has been called tho nation
of inventors;, and lias Weill earned the
title. Consider the hot-cake.
Offer a stack of wheats to the un
educated Englishman, for instance, and
ho would shudder with Imaginary in
digestion. Hpt cakes and Ice watet
are to him typically American?the
American has traveled with the In
dian in the wilds?hot-caKes are, there
fore, not adapted to the stomachs ot
tho highly civilized. The syllogism Is
without il..
But?seek but tho Englishman whe
has lived for any length of time In at:
American city?particularly tho Eng
lishman who has to work, and whoBt
remuneration Is not large.
You will find that this once effete
person eats hot cakes for his break
fast with his native tea. of course?
and that he has learned to appreciate
tho fact that ho can go a long waj
and a long time on tho carbo hydrates
ho absorbs and burns up from the
molasses and the more or less mye
tcrlous hot-cake.
Tho Englishman has becomo edu
cated.
Perhaps tho birth of this succulent
viand was duo more to necessity than
to any other reason?all great inven'
tlons are; but wo cannot moroly credit
necessity?tho inventor of the hot-cake
must have been insipred.
A magnificent statue ought to be
erected to his memory?wo mean
Hor.?(Seattle Sun.)
VALDEZ MINES GOING
TO PATENT NOW
?
A final receipt for patent was Is
sued by the local land offtco today
to tho Gold Bluff Mining Company, of
Valdoz. Alfred B. lies, president, for
three lode mining claims situated on
Shoup Bny, In tho vicinity of the fa
mous Cliff mine, discovered and lo
:ated by "Red" Ellis, some years ago
wd which has been producing stead
ily for somo tlmo.
DIFFERENCES IN TIME.
The difference in longitude between
s'ew York and Paris has boen accur
itely measured, in difference of time,
it 5 hours 17 minutes 36,658 seconds,
fortunately the sensible standard
imo arrangement saves us from tho
necessity of trying to keep such differ
mces in actual use. It is not so very
ong ago that there was four minutes'
inference betweon New York and tho
ailroad depots in Jersey City, which
bscrved Philadelphia time.?(New

, CANADA LOYAL TO
THE BRITISH EMPIRE
1 The loyalty of Canadians to the Brit*
!! ish Empire, Is perhaps one o f the most
? remarkable political facts In existence.
Although Canadians ar far more simi
? lar in their ways and manners and
motkods to the pooplo of the United
States than they are to those of Great
Britain '.hey still are to alf Intents
and purposes British to tho core, just
as much ns if thoy had boon born and
raised in tho tight little Island itself.
Australians aro far morn English
1 In accent and manner than Canadians
but tho two countries aro almost ex
actly parallel in the course which thoy
Invariably pursue when tho "mother
country" goes cut scrapping. This is
all the more queer when it Is remem
bered that Great Britain could lit into
a corner of one of tho Canadian or
Australian provinces. It looks like a
lot of big muscular sons in a family
whose head is a little old mcthcr.
Wonder what will happen when the,
two colonics have hundreds of millions
of population? Tho chances are then
that Great Britain will look like a vory
< small part indeed of tho English speak
ing peoples.
In the meantime you can always
notice here or any place else that a
Canadian is oven more Intensely work
ed up by tho war in Europe than an
Englishman himself.?(Seward Gate
