of splendor never before equalled
even in India, the country of marvel-
ous pageants, nor In any other land
In modern times, Qeorge and Mary,
dusky potentates were reiplendant In
the magnificent Jewels for which they
have long been famous. Indeed such
a display of precious stones never be-
fore was seen in modern times. The
rajahs, after making their obelea-
ances, grouped themselves about the
throne, where also stood the govern-
ors of the Asiatic colonies of the
crown, other distinguished govern-
ment officials and invited guests.
Queen Wears the Kohlnoor.
The king was crowned klng-emp

throne already wearing a crown that
had been made especially for this oc-
casion, garbed in the royal robes of

carrying the scepter. By his side sat

recognized today as emperor and em-
press of India. Up to their thrones
marched the proudest chiefs of Hin-
dustan and there did homage. The
ceremony was without precedent, for
never before has a British emperor
of India come to Delhi, the ancient
seat of the kings of India, to assume
his title. The Durbar, for which elab-
orate preparations had been un-
der way for months, took place in a
great camp to the north of the city,
some five miles square. The tempo-
rary population of this camp is about
a quarter of a million, and It Is fur-
nished with all the conveniences of
modern life, Including 31 post offices,
ten telegraph offices and even elec-
tric light, railways, motor cars and
taxi-cabs. There the people gathered

cleanest and best kept in the Ros-

first prize in a good farm competition
which included every feature of farm-

winter Wheeler was a prize winner
at the provincial seed "fair In Regtna.

much sought after by the best far-

A. Powder That's Different
The first difference you'll see when you
shoot Robin Hood Ammunition is the scarcely-
noticeable recoil. That means that all the force of
the powder is used to propel the shot or bullet.
The powder combustion is jirugresnive—produces
velocity all along the barrel.
The kick you notice In other ammunition is caused
by a big sudden explosion that works both forward
and backward and leaves no reserve force to follow
the load froin breech to muzzle.
