"We have the beaver," Sir Wilfred reminded him, "the emblem ct Induns try." "Beaver, indeed! Do yeo know what we call the bearvetr? A rat with a swelled tail," chuckled the Amert can. "And many people are apt to look on your American eagle as a Jay with a swelled head," the Premier promptly replied. The late Lord Kelvin, aeco?ipanied by Doctor Joule, paid a visit to the es tab...
