Is an excerpt.
T.he people of Kevelstoke. In co-op
eration with the Portland Chamber of
Commerce, are agitating a plan to have
the navigation of the Columbia River
Improved so that the grain and other
produrts of the great plains of Alberta
and Saskatchewan may be floated
down Its broad waters In barges from
the head of navigation at Revelstoke
to tide-waters at Portland, Or- there to
be transferred to ocean vessels and
taken through the Panama Canal to
the markets of the world. - This means
that the people of Revelstoke will In
tercept the grain and other products of
Alberta and Saskatchewan while In
transit to the ports of the Pacific Coast,
and divert It down the Columbia River
water route and thus effect a savins
to the Alberta farmer of 13.30 a ton In
freight and tl a ton In tolls through
the canal, or a total of $1.30, equal to
nearly 13 cents a bushel.
It means that In order to meet the
cheap water route competition of the
Columbia River the people of an-
couver and other Coast cities will have
to combine and tn self-defense develop a
waterway of their own.
Leeka aad Daaaa Needed.
"The Fraaer and Thompson rivers
will have to be Improved by a system
of dsms and locks, so that barges ran
be taken from tide-water away up Into
the interior to Revelstoke, and then
by offering a shorter route and cheap
er rates endeavor to offset the advan
tages possessed by the Columbia River
route, and thereby capture at least a
fair share of the trade of Alberta and
"It means that unless the Canadian
Coast cities bestir themselves and at
once Improve their own route so that
bargea may be taken from tidewater.

Bummer. The system undergoes a change at thia season and the antira
physical machinery la disturbed. The general bodily weakness, a tired,
worn-out feeling, fickle appetite, poor digestion, a hall sick feeling and a
general run-down condition of the system, show that the blood Is weak or
anaemia, and a blood purifying tonio is needed to build up the deranged
system and enrich the blood. The use of S. S. S. at thia time may save
tou from a long spell of sickness, and it will certainly prepare you for the
long, hot Summer. Many people have put off using a tonio until the system
became so weakened and depleted it could not successfully throw off disease
germs, and hare paid for the neglect with a spell of fever, malaria or some
other debilitating sickness. S. 8. 8. is Nature's ideal tonio. It is a
composition of the extracts and juices of roots, herbs and barks which
science and experience have proven are best fitted for a tonio to the human
system, it contains no minerals of any kind and is therefore perfectly safe
for persons of any age. S. S. S. tones up the stomach and digestion, rids
the system of that tired, worn-out feeling, and Imparts vigor and strength
to every part of the body. It purifies and enriches the blood, stimulates
the secreting and excreting members to better action, quiets the over
Sttalned nerves, and makes one feel better in every way.
