Agassis may well be proud of its
big hotel. It's name true to character
—Bella Vista—"a grand view" of Its
town, and forming the very hub or
pivot of Agassiz, ana no doubt to he
the centre of the coming city. From
tho hotel top may be hud a grand
view of the Valley, the river and the
far-flung CIP.R. i   |   ifr'fl.
No hotel could be better managed,
for Mr. Pijobert Is the very last word
lit such regard. The rooms are largo
niul In every way attractive, and the
cuisine has none superior in the Vat-
ley. Fitting that such an hostel
should be the pontal to the great Harrison Hot Springs, Its mineral waters
and  Its magnificent resort  to be.

The Association is purely educative
in function. It is not Identified with
nny Government department or commercial Interest, although enjoying
the heartiest goodwill of all such
bodies and laboring with them cooperatively   without   overlapping.
Financial support is provided by
Government grants and membership
fees with subhcrlptlons from agricultural, mercantile and wood manufacturing Interests, totalling about $70,-
000  a year.
The Association has (1) secured
important forest protection laws and
lias brought more effective administration.
(2) Aroused public Interest in the
most vital aspects of forest conservation.
(5) Brought to hundreds of thousands of Canadian school children Information essential to the future
management of the natural resource.'
in  the pchlic   Interest.
(4) Has acted as the standard bear,
er of organized publlo opinion by
making Forestry a national cause intelligible to every citizen.
(6) Has put first things first by insisting upon forest fire prevention ns
the Immediate and paramount necessity in nny plan of permanent forest
rcscu rcoa.
(6) It has rendered a sterling service to better agriculture and bettei
homos in the prairie provinces by organized   tree-planting  campaigns.
(7) It has presented to scores ol
thousands of Canadian voters the
common sense reasons for forest
protection, not only as a safeguard to
the existance of wood-udng industries, but as an Insurance policy on
farms   fisheries,   mines,   manufactures
and   all   other   constructive   activities
of the Canadian peUue,
The Association has also a Tro<*
Planting Car, confined to tha prairlo
provinces, a service of practical help
and inspiration to ■100 public gatherings each yeart and to tens of thousands of puilrlo farmers. It also has
a Publicity Bureau in league with
f.00 Canadian editors, a great power
tn nn hi Idling ipubl'lc opinion ; and a
Speakers' Bureau with 3,000 volunteer
workers In Eastern Canada and British Columbia, and 3,500 In the prairie provinces, giving them entry to
terousands of schools with specially
prepared manuscripts on such topics
as forest fires, the simple economics
of forestry, wild life preservation,
tree planting, and allied topics, A
Motion Picture Bureau with travelling picture sets, reaching thousands
of people month by month, and lecturing to business men's clubs by
Association officers. They also plan
forest protection literature with boy
scouts and school c&uet corps, the use
of fire warnings on dining car menus
and elsewhere, the distribution of
thousands of pieces of constructive
reading matter through the clergy,
banks, and other agencies.
The official magazine, Canadian
Forests and Outdoors, Is an Instructive monthly, widely quoted by newspaper editors and of value as an educator.
A large number visited tho car.
which contained everything from A
to Z In wood, which was very cleverly arranged, also showing disease In
wood and) Insect pests, and their control In biids,  mounted like life.
One exhibit in particular was a
number of articles of clothing, all of
which were made from wood and resembled  silk  In   texture.
The whole car was decorated with
beautiful pictures of fonests and forest fires, lit up by electricity. Noticeable among them were some by
Mr. Leonard Frank of Vancouver,
Other wonderfhl exhibits were models of country showing the destruction by fire, and worked by electric-
sty. In fact, the whole car was a
work of art which deserved great
credit and was of great Interest to
everyone.

A REST HOME
A (test lltiiiii' - whal, some new
Idea? It may bo. .Vow Ideas justify thought.
iKut loii-,** ago il was tlie custom to
pin boys of tender ngo who had committed some misdemeanor in the chain
gang with the adult criminals (we
more than once saw thai In western
Canada during the past two decades).
The new idea ,iuivocq ted by thoughtful men ami women, gave us reform,
or, as they are belter called, Industrial Schools, for those misguided
yottth. More recently still the d
ficlenl and defective child was permitted, no matter how low in Ihe
mental scale, to attend 1 lie seats of
learning with the normal children.
The new idea gave us schools for
these 1r> the widest possible advantage of all concerned from tlie unfortunate offspring himself or herself to
the province or Dominion.
There is another new idea coming
to its own-—the provision of a (test
home for minor menial classes. This
is it social and most important public
question.
Thinking men and women throughout the province may well be reminded that there Is urgent call for
such provision at the pi esent time,
and all we needjts the determination
of some practical plan of remedy,
Not a few cases of late where men
and women suffering from temporary
shock or horror or mlsventure, hav*
been classed as lunatics and consigned to the asylum where were the
hopeless—they, perhaps, too, becoming hopelessly such, and there finding
life-long  detentios.
This reference Is not Imaginary or
even over-stressed. It would not be
difficult for any of us to recall several such cases, and let us not forget
the value to society of even one citizen. We intend to consider this
question on its inherent and intrinsic
merit. These lines but an "appetizer"
"We can all bo thinking over the matter for present.

Maple Ridge Methodist Church
Celebrates Anniversary
Pifty-ono years' service fo:' the
Methldlst Church on Maple Ridge was
celebrated Sunday. At 2:30, Rev, Mr.
Ireland delivered a thoughtful sermon
to a large congregation ; at 8 p.m.
Mr. Redmond, of Columbia College,
save a Missionary Talk which was
very much appreciated by the members of the Epworth League. RoV.
Mr. Clarke occupied the chair. Misses
Lavarne Brock and Edith Harrison
sang two ducts and were  encored.
Monday evening, trom 6 to 8, was
given to the anniversary supper.whlch
was very largely attended. Exception
nl praise Is due to members of the
Ladies' Aid for the success of this
function.
At 8:20, Rev. Mr. Westman took fer
his subject "Ireland and the Irish."
No speaker could have more captivated his every hearer. The rev. gentleman did not leave even one unprepared for an evening of wonder and
delight. He had heen asked on the
way up, if ho was a real Irishman or
a make-believe, and he proceeded to
show that ho was all of the former.
He propounded the question "Did
you ever know of a great country or
even community that did not have an
Irishman   In   It ?"
If we considered grand scenery,
Dumber of towers auxiliaries to
ehurcln'H and graveynrds, peat bogs,
Hunny-heartf-rl people, nnd a nation of
iiir-ti who ever fospoot womnnhond,
then T rein ml has nn peer. Yes, nnd
Include tho Irish hospitality,  too.
Indeed no plnee thnt more might he
eallod  ihe  Garden  of  Eden,
Industries, the contour of the coun
try, oharnotor °f its people, its educational and church life, wero carefully delineated. Irish homes wove
not, as many thought! devoid of
pianos, but Instead, It |H the homo of
music, the harp being tlie origin of
tho   piano.
Those who were not renlly acquaint
' d with Irish wnys, habits of character and genius, had mnny erroneous
Ideas of the son nf "Insula Sacra.''
Fon Instance, it was thought that often lhe 00Wj the Pig, ot al, resided
with the family. The speaker snid it
was not necessary to go to Ireland
for such nn Instance, ns he knew recently in Vancouver, where father nnd
mother, daughter 17 and son 14, n-
well as three OOWB, all huddle,] jn one
room.

All the scenes nut on were works
of art and covered every phase of the
subject pretty well. Lack of space
forbids doing anything like justice to
cither Rev. Westman's lecture or the
views. Safe to say that It is unlikely that ever was a more entertaining
nnd Instructive evening spent in tlie
church. A s a sort of a fitting finale, views were shown of Lord Roberts, General French. Sir Garnet Wol-
seley, Daniel O'Connell, Lord Kitchener, Richard Brlnsley, Sheridan, and
many   others.
A hearty vote of thanks was tendered   tho   lecturer.
ALBION NEWS
The Young Girls' Progressive Club
held a Dance-Social on Wednesday,
asd it was Indeed a success. The
newly-formed fowl-piece- orchestra
rendered the muslo for the evening. ,
And indeed their rendering of the dlf- j
flcult and up-to-date dance music wait
a revelation to many. The comments
of the dancers on the music wore,
flattering. The combination of thc
orchestra was Mrs. Day (piano), G.
Black (violin). H. T. Sands (trombone),       (banjo).
I was very sorrp to see a lot of
tho school girls, ages not more than
12 pears, trying to imitate their older
sisters. In as much as theso very
young flappers have started wearing
earrings and painting and powder-
puffing ,(their complexion. Surely
theso ages are ton young to start
such practices, but 1 feel sure their
parent^ are not aware of those practices. But lot me tell theso young
girls t„hat beauty unadorned Is beauty
Indeed.

sincerely hope thnt he will recover, to

"Kentucky Days" 1» the title of the
photoplay at the local playhouse on
Thursday March 20th,, for the first
time In BC. Written by John Lynch
a famous writer of pioneer- days, he
Kives an exciting, colorful and ex-
tremely fascinating and picturesque
picture of the days of '49. Opening
with the plantation, the production
re-constructa the gay frivolous plantation life, with the -whimsical negroes and the stern men and women
The singular fashions then In vogue
are reproduced faithfully and promise
bo end of amusement for the modem
women, Then the spirit of the trail
to the West takes effect, and the
wagon train to the Bold fields and
fertile lands of tho' Pacific Is formed.
The hardships that accompauy Buch
a trip, thrilling and exoltlng for all;
makes "Kentucky Days" a remarkably good picture. Dustln Parnum
plays the sturdy John Buckner, and
Elizabeth Fielding, who stars fn "If
Winter Comes," plays the girl Mis?
Clayborne. Thrilling fights, a wonderful desert sand storm, and picturesque scenery and splendid aotlng,
make "Kentucky Days" a splendid en
tertalnlng drama. Keep the date in
mind, Thursday, March 20th. The

Tuner—Having supplied oneself with
a piece of cardboard tubing, about 4
inches is diameter and about half a
pound of No. 24 double cotton-covered copper wire, one Is ready to start
the winding of the tuner. Punch two
holes fn the tube about half an inch
from one end, weave the wire through
these holes, in such a way that the
end of the wire will .be quite firmly
an cored, leaving about 12 inches of
the wire free for connections. Start
with the remainder of the wire to
wrap the several turns fn a single
layer about the tube. After 10 complete turns have been wound on the
tube, hold those turns snugly while a
tap is being taken off. This tap Is
made by making a six in. loon of the
wire and twisting it together at mu'h
a place that it will be slightly ahead
of the first tap. Proceed In this
manner until  seven  twisted taps have
been  taken off at every    ten    turns.
