CANADIAN FISHERIES. EXTRAORDINARY ACCIDENT An extraordinary condition, "gard ing the British Columbia Salmon fAish eries, which. may seriously affect the future of the canning trade, bhas recent ly been reported to the Fisheries Dec partmentl at Ottawa. In br'iding their British Columbia line -iug- the precipitous banks of the Fraser liver, the Canadian Northern railway, is re ported to have blasted enorm:us quantities of rockl iito the ffam.ass salmon river. These masses of rock have so deflected the current- that when a big. "run" occurs, they. are unable to pass the obstaole, an.l ae conseqsuently prevented from reaoh ing their spawning grounds. This year there was a big "run" and it is stated that vhen the salmon reached these dams, they were uinalle to go on, and millions turned back and died without spawning. The results will probably be serious, as a big run occurs every four years, when tsere is an increase of three and four million dollars in the salmon canning trade. The s...

Not only did Sunny Jim break the record for long flight, but it perform cd a feat that is unique in the iainals of pigeon-fly~hig, being the first bird ever known to cross the tropics.

ARTIFICIAL LIMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
ARTIFICIAL LIMBS. Men are daily working, some with only one of their natural limbs, some with neither, and yet they are per forming their duties as- rapidly and skilfully. as their fellows, who are made up entirely of flesh, blood and bone, says the New York Tribune. In Boston there is a legless man who supports himself as a roof painter. Climbing about buildings and going up and-down ladders, with two arti licial limbs, he covers as much surface in a day as any of the others working with him. On the St Lawrence River there is a boatman who makes a busi ness of rowing fishermen to nooks amnong the Thousand Islands, where they can fill their baskets. He pulls against wind and current, jumps in and out of the boat, moors and shoves off, as if hie were complete in all his natur al members, and yet his left leg is wood below the knee. It would appear as if bicycle riding were almost impossible, yet J. A. Nil stn is a man who finds it easy, and gets as much assistance from the lmom ber a...
