He is Just a handy man with tools. When he went into the woods along the new 96-mtle aqueduct that brings water to Winnipeg from Shoal lake, the only tools he took along were the Implements mentioned. The new country, that civilization forgot in Its western progress, lies between the transcontinental line of the Canadian National railways and Lake of the Woods, of which Shoal lake is an arm. Settlement has passed it by. The building of the arftteuct discovered its fine farming possibilities. When Steisor had selected his farm hej and his family set up housekeeping In a tent. Then he went to work to build a home. Trees were all he needed and the woods were full of them. He soon had enough logs and In getting them out he had cleared a nice front yard. He trimmed the bark off the logs, squared them, smoothed their sides and retched them at the ends for Joining. He fashioned clapboards for the roof. Joists, ibeams, sills and frames for doors end windows. In a few weeks bo had a neat little four square home with a pyramidal roof, with walls o smooth and closely set together they looked at a little distance as if made of well planed hoards. t He had to go hack to town for the window glass. Outside of the glass the house is all the work of his two hands, his ax, saw, hammer and drawknife. Soon after ho moved In winter set In. Steisor and his family, snuji and comfortable In their new home, denied tho elements. The, houee was as tight as a drum. Steisor is a city bred man. His home shows what a handy man can do when isolated in the' country and thrown on his own resources. iiiiiiin Kervices nunnny at 11 a. in., Wednesday 8 p. m., Sunday school at f :43 a. m. at the Pavenport school of divine science, MoCullough building.

Highest Grade Silks and Woolens Now on DIsplay for Sprinff What a Mother Thinks About BY EDITH E. MOMARITY Slother love Is one of the greatest forces in the world and the person who tries to 6ay anything but good of it will have many an excellent mother on the other side. Nevertheless an instance may show that sometimes even mother love, though sincere, is not always a force for tho greatest good. There is a pretty and falented young artist whose individuality and pleasant personality is being submerged and almost stifled by a mother whose love is working. In the wrong direction. The girl is of a sweet, sunny disposition, very sensible and capable, but her mother foroibly relieves her of all responsibility and care until the poorhild seems on the road to becoming a nonentity. She is fast losing interest in everything save her work, her friends are losing Interest in her, and her mother has lost interest in everything else save her daughter. The result of this Is pathetic. The mother who loves her daughter, not wisely but too well, monopolizes her young daughter's time. Even that might be forgive-able, but she goes farther. She always monopolizes the conversation no matter what the occasion and turns the talk into channels where she can hold long discourse upon the talents and achievements of her offspring. Friends become sympathetic, strangers become disgusted and annoyed, the poor little girl herself is always uneasy, but tries not to show it, and the mother? The mother goes on talking and talking, unceasingly. She Is overconfident v and supercilious about her daughter' accomplishments, and she is over-sensitive about the little unpleasant things which must be mot even by a clever young artist. s What an injustice that mother Is doing her daughter. How much better off the girl would be if left to rely more on her own resources and devices. How much happier she would bo if allowed to speak, think and act for herself. While one blames mother love for this, may it not be pure selfishness? Do you not know many mothers who call such selfishness by another name? After all is said, however. It is perhaps better for mothers to lavish even selfish affection upon their children than to deny them the love they should have. Copyright, 1920 Gold Talks He "Why so sad, dearest?

World's Diamonds Worth 13 Billions; Make Wagon Load If all the diamonds mined in history and existiug today as cut and polished gems were gathered from the ends of the earth, they would form a pile about as large as a wagon load of coal dumped on the sidewalk, says a Chicago statistical expert. The pile would contain 46,355,474 carats, eahd the gems would weigh 10,2 tons. If the pile were in the form of a cone, it would have a base diameter of eight feet and a height of five feet. Beckoning the diamonds at $300 a carat, it would have a value of $13,906,642,200. It would contain 710 1-3, gallons worth $5,539,023,-a gallon; or 76 1-3 bushels valued at $51,570,729 a bushel. All the world's diamonds could be packed in an ordinary clothes closet or a kitchen pantry. This estimate ia based on an approximation of the total output of rough diamonds in the world's entire history. India, it is estimated, has produced, all told, 60,000,000 carats; Braril, 15,000,000; South Africa. 170,574,000; Borneo, 1,000,-000; British Guiajia, 50,000; Australia, 150,000; China, 2,000; Siberia, 500; United States. 500. This is a total rough output of 236,777,- K374 carats, or 55 3-5 tons avoirdu pois. Only about 50 per cent of rough diamonds are cnt into gems, and lose about 60 per cent of their weight In being cut and polished. Diamonds are practically inde-structable,-and the first diamond . ever mined may possibly still bo In existence. But the estimate allows for the loss of at least' 1,000,000 carats by flood, fire, shipwTeelc and other disasters. " These reductions and losses leave a total of cut and polished diamonds at 46,355,474 carats. Th estimate of $300 a carat is the minimum price at which diamonds can be bought today. The popular demand for diamonds waa never so great, and they have become the gem of working people as well as the wealthy classes. They are worth three times as much now as before the war and sell at from $300 to $1,000 a carat. A .Husical Corps "That was a lively song Miss Howies sang, wasn't it?" "It was before she killed It."
