CRANBROOK.  B.C.,  THURSDAY,   APRIL   8th, 1928
Hold Fair On
Town Grounds
Gyro Club To Cb-Operate In
Matter of the Usual
A momentum*; decision was reached
at a meeting last week at the Agricultural Association, along with (he
Gyro Club representatives, when it
was decided to hold the Kail Fair
this year al the sports ground in
town, instead of making use of the
buildings at the old fair grounds. It
has been felt that the location of
the grounds which were used lust
year, being some distance out of
town, make it difficult to secure the
best attendance. It has accordingly
heen decided to hire one or two large
tents for the occasion, which can be
used to house the various exhibits
at the fair, excepting the live stock,
for which some other provision will
be made. It might be possible, for
instance, to keep the stock overnight
at the skating rink nnd hold the
judging on the grounds.
The Gyro Club having undertaken
to back the fair to the utmost, are
making arrangements for the attractions which are usually considered
to go along with a fair. They have
made a contract with the Conklin-
Garrett Amusement Company for the
staging of a regular midway at the
fair, which will also be held at the
same grounds. It is also possible
there may be an aeroplane brought
in for the occasion, but this is not
at all certain. In the meantime,
raffle tickets for the new car to be
given away are being sold by the
Gyros, and it is expected a good sum
will be realized for the benefit of
the fair from this. Further plans
regarding the fair are being made
and will be announced as they are
Matters have been in abeyance
during the absence of Mr. Hay in
the East, but now he has returned,
arrangements will be pushed so as
to ensure the most complete success
for the fair.
Mr. Tom Martin, of Martin Bros.,

Reported  Depoiiti  in Eait
Kootenay To Be Thoroughly Prospected
An important addition to the mining industry of British Columbia may
be made, according to announcement
issued by Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines and provincial secretary, under the provisions of legislation passed at the last session of
the Provincial Legislature,
Mr. Sloan states that a large tract
of phosphate-bearing land has been
located in Southeast Kootenay, in the
neighborhood of Elko, recently, and
that it would be carefully prospected.
To   Encourage   Phosphate   Mining
Referring to the legislation, Mr.
Sloan explained that its chief purpose
is to make it possible to take up
phosphate mining rights in claims one
square mile in area. This could not
be done under the Mineral Act, as the
ordinary mineral claim cannot exceed 51.05 acres in extent. Phosphate could not be mined and subjected to the treatment necessary to
make it of value as a fertilizer at a
profit unless acquired in large blocks.
Realizing that, under these conditions, it was not likely that much interest would be taken by prospectors
in the search for phosphate deposits
in British Columbia of the nature
that could be exploited, it was decided to ask the legislature to take
this mineral from the "Mineral Act"
and place it under a special act for
administration purposes.
C. M. & S. Co. May Develop
The session had scarcely drawn to
a close before enquiries began to be
received from all parts of the province, whilst gold commissioners and
mining recorders reported that much
interest was being taken in phosphate
possibilities. Evidently the encouragement thus offered already has
borne fruit, for the Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co, of Canada,
Limited, has become interested in the
newly discovered phosphate claims.
The association of this company's
name with the property is sufficient
assurance that the deposits will be
thoroughly prospected, and that, if
they are proved to be of economic
value, the capital required to put the
new industry on its feet will be available immediately.
The minister pointed out that the
successful operation of the industry
would require a large initial capital
outlay and only a large corporation
would be financially able to carry
it to a successful completion, especially as their operations are now
on a commercial basis. Sulphuric
acid is used very largely in the manufacturing of phosphate fertilizer.
At present this is a waste product at
the Trail smelter, but having this
sulphuric acid as a by-product and
able to dispose of it as a fertilizer
would prove a great economic saving
and allow production on a more economical basis.
At the regular meeting of the Native Sons of Canada held last evening the following officers were elected:

Empire Day Meeting
On Friday of this week, April 0th,
a general committee meeting is to be
held at the G.W.V.A. to discuss the
proposed program In connection with
the Victoria Day celebration, and
other arrangements in connection
with it. The matter of the grounds
on which to hold the event is not yet
fully decided, and it is desired to
get as full an attendance as possible
in order to discuss the proposed ar
rangemeuts as fully as possible.
Fire  nl  Banff Springs   Hole!
Word was received in the city today that the north wing of the Banff
Springs Hotel was burnt down yesterday, with lesser damage to centre
part of the buildings, while the south
wing was untouched.
On July 1st this year the hotel
will commence operating with nmple
public space. There will be available 300 rooms, including a newly
erected annex, according ot en of*

Four   Day   Chautauqtfa
In response to a call for a hurried
meeting, a number of the local Chautauqua committee met on Wednesday
to consider a proposal from the
Chautauqua company to reduce the
duration of the visit from 6 days to
4 and the guarantee from $1650 to
$1050, After due consideration those
present unanimously accepted the
proposal and subscribed their names
to an amended contract, which was
also to be circulated amongst the
members unable to be present. The
Chautauqua representatives guaranteed that the 4 days' program would
be in many respects better than the
(1 day one, and the local committee
would be better off financially.
Many noted speakers will be heard,
aai MMp oihor attmtWe features
Quite an unusual gathering, and
one of considerable moment in the
community, was that which took place
in the K.P. Hall on Tuesday, and in
which the agricultural interests of
the district were very much to the
fore. Representative farmers from
all parts of the district were in attendance, and were supported by
various organizations in the city,
most of who were noticeably unxious
to claim some kinship with the soil,
telling how at some stage of their
lives they had been quite seriously
connected with some phase of farming. A noticeable feature of the
gathering was the number of young
farmers present.
A  Representative Attendance
The occasion was a banquet given
by the directors of the Farmers' Institute, the Agricultural Association
and the Stock Breeders' Association,
and the public presentation of the
prizes won at the coast fairs last
fall by the members of the junior
livestock and crop judging teams
from this district. It was very well
attended, all sections of the communities and the various interests of
the city being represented, as well
as different organizations—about a
hundred and fifty people in all showing by their attendance that they
have some interest in the progress of
agriculture in the district. All tbe
members of the junior judging classes
which have been carried on in the
past two or three years under the
direction of A. L. Hay, district agriculturist, were guests at the banquet,
as well as the actual prize winners.
The banquet part of the evening's
proceedings was provided by the
efforts of the wives of the directors
of the three organizations responsible
for the gathering, and they were ably
assisted in serving it by the wives of
the members of the Gyro Club, which
is this year interesting itself in the
local fall fair. The bountiful and
well served repast spoke for itself,
and fully deserved all the appreciative words from the various speakers
during the evening, being complete
in every respect, and leaving nothing
to be desired by the gourmand or
Mr.  T. R.  Flett Presides
Immediately following th^ banquet, and as the first item on the
program to follow, a pretty incident
took place when Miss Frances Noble,
assistant in the office of the district
agriculturist, was presented with a
beautiful bouquet of flowers by Dorothy McClure, in recognition of her
efforts in backing up the work of
Mr. Hay with the classes that have
been carried on.
T. R. Flett, as the president of
the Agricultural Association, presided
very acceptably throughout the evening's proceedings. He stated the objects of the gathering, and complimented Mr. Hay on the work he has
been carrying on among the young
people in the stock judging classes.
Mr. Flett added also a tactful word
of sympathetic reference to the recent tragic death of Maurice Godderis, one of the young people who
it was thought would have been present, to receive with his team mates
the recognition of the credit they
have brought to their home district.
Mayor T. M. Roberts being called
upon, said that the appointment of
Mr. Hay as district agriculturist here,
had undoubtedly been a popular one,
and from being associated with the
Agricultural Association, he could
testify personally as to the good work
he was doing. He offered congratulations both to Mr. Hay and the boys
and girls on the teams, on the success they had attained.
Vancouver   Awards
Mr. G. J. Spreull was called upon
to make the presentation of the medals won by the Cranbrook teams at
the Vancouver Fair, and preceded
this by a few appropriate remarks,
He observed very tritely that it took
brains to be a farmer, and that the
haphazard methods of the past were
now giving way to a more scientific
mode of effort. It had been dreary
work in the past, but now the application of science and training to
the work was tending to produce a
breed of real farmers. But more
attention, yet, he felt, could be paid
to the position of the younger generation on the farm, to make their
i lot more contented, and he urged the
\ farmers to see that their boys on the
. farm got their dues the same as the
j hired man, or were given some substantial interest fn the working of
the farm. He also added his words
of congratulation to Mr. Hay on the
success of his teams, and the honor
they had brought to the district.
Mr. Spreull then presented the
prizes won at the Vancouver fair
judging contests, in which ten teams
from all parts of B. C, competed.
The first team, who won gold medals,
was made up of Lawrence Foster,

Big Hall Crowded to Utmost
Capacity for Easter
One of the pleasantest dances
ever held in Cranbrook was the verdict of the large number who attended the big Easter function which
took place in the Auditorium on Monday evening lust. Thut it was also
successful financially should be a
matter of great satisfaction to the
Hospital Laides' Aid, the committee
of ladies who had the sponsoring of1
this by no means small undertaking.
In the opinion of many no larger
crowd ever tried to dance on the
Auditorium floor than that which
eddied and surged for hours to the
strains of music from the hard working orchestra.
Possibly it wus due to the fact that
the abstinence from dancing for the.
long period Lent had whetted,
the appetites of those who love to
indulge in the terpischorean art, or'
the desire to assist in a worthy cause,
that resulted in crowding the floor
to such an extent that dancing was
well nigh impossible for some time.
It is no exaggeration to state that a
floor twice the size would not have
been too large to accomodate the
crowd. But crowded as it was, everybody was happy and seemed to
enjoy themselves.
For the occasion the hall was nicely decorated, this lending a pleasing
atmosphere to the event. The refreshments, served in semi-buffet
style, were all that could be desired,
every attention being given by the
efficient staff of ladies in charge.
The music, which was supplied by
the McKay orchestra, of Kimberley,
kept the dancers rarin' to go at all
times. At two o'clock few appeared
to want to go home, so a collection
was taken and the dance continued
till three.
With regard to the extent to which
the St. Kugene Hospital will be benefited financially, this will not he definitely known till some outside returns are in, but it is estimated that
over $700 will be the net result.
Leave*   for   Kamloapi
Many friends of Mr. J. C (Scottyj
Emslie were ut the depot on Tuesday
to bill him farewell on his departure
for Kamloops. He is spending u few
days in Nelson first, going on to
Kamloops  to  he there on  the  12th.
Fur   Farm in*   at   Wilmer
Basil G, Hamilton, of lnvermere,
was a visitor in the city for a few
days over last week-end, returning
north the middle of this week. He
was accompanying Lieut.-Commander
J. C. Powles, F.Z.S., of Wilmer, who
motored down. Commander Powles
is the owner of the Britannia Fur
Farm ut Wilmer, a fifty acre property on which he is raising beaver
and muskrat, and he will shortly be
adding several brace of silver fox.
Commander Powles believes there is
a great future for the fur business
in this country, feeling sure there
there will always be a good market
for the furs of standard quality.
When he is adding the fox stock to
his ranch, he may decide to include
some of the locally raised breed, he

of the members, was "a real bang up

yet even far more enjoyable was the
intellectual feast which the members
had the pleasure of indulging in
when Rev. B. C. Freeman, who was
the speaker of the evening, gave an
address which was thoroughly enjoyed, and worthy of delivering to a
many times greater audience.
Within the time available then
cannot be given any adequate

book of Premier King by the same

doubtless prove most beneficial to
all. The old question as to respective
rights of capital and labor was

interrelation between them was aptly

Program  For Gathering  at
Central School; Social
In Evening
A gathering of particular interest
to the public school teachers of this
city and district is to take place on
Friday of next week, April 16th, at
the Central School commencing at
2 p.m.. A big program for the convention has been arranged, which
will probably occupy the entire afternoon from two until six. The
territory the convention will embrace
extends from about Yahk to Elko,
Wycliffe. Marysville and Kimberley
and towns on the Kootenay Central.
In the evening a social event takes
place, when the local teachers will
entertain their visitors and friends
at a whist drive and dance
at the Parish Hall. It is expected
that the program of the convention
while of a more or less purely local
nature, will be of considerable benefit especially to the teachers of the
rural districts. The program as arranged i« as follows;

was learned last week end, by which
Hon. R. Randolph Bruce disposes of
the well-known Paradise Mine which
ttuated about 19 miles west of
Lake Windermere, directly back from
he town of lnvermere. Mr, Bruce
announced on his recent return from
the Old Country that he considered
xpedient, on account of having
taken up the offlce of Lieutenant-
Governor for this province, to dispose of some of his interests in the
Windermere, and that he had given
an option on the Paradise Mine property to some English capitalists.
No price covering the deal i- being
given out though Mr. Bruce gave out
that the consideration involved was
well under $300,000.00.

It is now learned that this option
which was given on the Paradise
Mine is being taken up. It is not
known exactly who the purchasers
but Mr. "W. A. Drayton, well-
known mining operator of Fort

these Interests and it is believed that

name having been mentioned in coast
mining circles in connection with the

that vicinity which have been held
by MrM. Bruce, and also some timber
hy Mr. Bruce, and also some timber
ralue. None of Mr. Brute's property
in the immediate vicinity of lnvermere is affected by the deal. Enquiry at Government House, Victoria,
last Saturday, elicited the announcement that the complete transfer
might not be accomplished till about

Jaleretlinf   History
The history of the Paradise Mine
is one of much Interest and shows
that success in mining is more often
only to be had by hard work, intense application and persistence
than by striking a spectacular and
immediate success. The mine was
originally located by two illiterate
prospectors who were able to recognize that it had mineral value. Jts
ubsequent operation on a small
cale proved it to be- too far from
the transportation lines to return
much to those who were working it.
It passed through several hands, was
xamined a number of times by mining engineers whose reports as to
he promise of the mine varied, and
finally it was acquired by a syndicate
of eastern men in which Mr. Bruce
had an interest. Under their ownership some profitable work was
carried on, the ore being raw-hided
down to Wilmer. This ore had then
to be taken to Golden for shipment
to Trail. It did not seem possible
to operate the mine on a commercial
basis in this way, and it was accordingly closed down until construction
of the Kootenay Central railway
about 15 years ago, by which time
Mr. Bruce had acquired the full ownership of the mine. He cut a good
road from the mine- to the tracks at
lnvermere and put Mg trucks to work
hauling the ore down, anil since thi*
time the mine has been shipping
steadily, two or three cars of silver-
lead ore going to Trail regularly
week by week. It is not an easy
mine to work, the altitude being considerable, and difficult conditions
sometimes interfering with the work,
Of late years a steady crew of about
twenty to thirty men have been em*
lhe news of the transfer of this
•-veil known property aroused much
interest among the mining fraternity
of Vast Kootenay nnd it is hoped that
the same IUC0PU which has attended
the iperation of the mine Will be
continued for many years, as it is
known there is considerable ute reserve in fright which should favor
operation of the mine for a long
while to come.
It wan of interest to note that the
conclusion reached coincided with
that of many students today, that
"Christianity applied to the everyday problems is the only sure way
in which they would be effectively

Mr. and Mrs. Gen. KatclifTe, of
North Bend, were visitors in Cranbrook this week. Mr. Ratcliffe, who

SPEAKERS iu the agricultural Unquet held one
evening this week (lid nol fail to tmphasize
the honor done lo the district when the young stock
and crop judges swept the boards at the Coast
(airs last year, and rightly so, Likewise the thoroughness with which lhe district agriculturist has
carried on his work In this connection was not
forgotten. It was a memorable gathering in many
respects, and the Herald is glad thai it was found
possible tu carry out with such signal success a
suggestion for some public recognition of what was
done for the district, which was advanced in these
columns right aflcr the successes of the local teams
became known.
it was very noticeable that .-111111181 everyone
who spoke on this occasion as representing some
organization, asserted a deep interest in the agricultural possibilities of the district. Even discounting these somewhat i<> allow for the enthusiasm of
lhe occasion, it is obvious that gatherings of this
kind, bringing together all the various elements in
the community, are desirable. They can do much
to bring the agricultural possibilities of the district into proper prominence, which has not been
done in the past. There is loo much apologizing
done in respect to what fanning i^ carried on. which
is not necessary. Any reference to fanning activities in the surrounding district is almost always
qualified with the remark thai "litis is not a fanning
country, you know." But it is becoming recognized
more ami more thai il lakes brains lo be a fanner
under the best conditions, so thai those who are
working the land here under conditions that the
climatic variations  render  more  widely  divergent
than Usual, and are doing il intelligently, deserve
more support than they seem to be getting here.

WHEN ill a comparatively short time now, the
new concentrator is put into operation at Moyie, will it mean that gradually a new era of prosperity will begin to encompass the place, as ill the
years gone by, when the St. Eugene Mine was pouring forth its wealth into the Easl Kootenay?
There arc many still of the opinion that more wealth
vet lies within the tunnels of the old mine, and that
with the incentive of the new mill thorough prospecting may bring new ore bodies to light thai
will bring the mine back lo the list of shippers,
even after the dump from the old workings is worked over. Stranger stories than this have come to
|inss in   Ihe course  of milling history.
In the meantime, there is the promise of a
new phase of activity in the possible development
on a large scale ol phosphate deposjts. Mining
lias many angles, and Easl Kootenay is blessed with
resources of this nature lhat can be turned to considerable account when worked under proper development.
"torn Our Exchanges
A business writer says a buyer for a Chicago
department store has posted a h.kii that reads "no handshaking." His contention is that commercial handshaking is an impediment to the serious business of buying.
Of course, "hands up" is more used in Chicago. Soviet
Itussia has also frowned upon the ancient habit of clasping
hands, we are told. The reason in this ease is not that
it wastes time in business, but that it is insanitary.
Possibly it is in Russia.
Anthropologists say that the habit of grasping
hands goes back to the time when men carried spears in
their right hands. When a roaming caveman passed a
man that he recognized, he would shift his spear to his
left hand and clasp the right hand of the passerby with
his own. It was, we are told, an early form of guarantee, a symbol of peace, or a promise that one would not
try to kill the other. It is a custom that should be
preserved, for it is still a disarming gesture among
men.—Brandon Sun.

new national movement recently
consummated. Dr. A. M. Sanford.
first president of the B.C. Conference, United Church of Canada, will
be the speaker at both the morning
and evening services, and special
music will be rendered by the choirs
at the morning ami evening services.
Sunday evening the Easter music
was given by the choir of the United
church, when the church was filled
to overflowing by »n appreciative audience. The pastor, Rev. B. C. Freeman, delivered an appropriate Kaster-
tide address, and the congregation
joined heartily in the Easter hymns.
Special Easter music rendered by the
choir was as follows: Anthem, ".lesus
is Risen"; "Emmanuel"; solo by Mrs,
H. C. Kinghorn; vocal solo, "In Pastures Green," from "Emmanuel," by
Mrs. J. Norgrove; anthem solo, Mrs.

where their plants and warehouses
are established, has been here for u
few days, and is now superintending
the work of removing the three big
storage tanks from their former location to tho new site, where the
new buildings of the Imperial Oil
are now located. The first of the
big tanks was moved this week. It
weighs five or -ox tons, nnd was moved over on the heavy cartage equip*
ment of the City Transfer Co. It
has already been erected, and will
be ready to receive a tank of gasoline
very shortly.
On Sunday evening last the choir
of the Baptist Church, under the
leadership of Mr. J. L. Palmer, presented a new Easter cantata, "Hosan-
na," by Nolt, which took the place
of the regular evening service. It
was quite a pretentious undertaking
for a dozen voices, but went off very
well, the Eastertide story being conveyed very pleasingly by means of
the words and appropriate music.
The solo pnrts were very acceptably
taken by Mrs. H. R. Hinton. Mrs. E.
C. Kuhnert, Miss WofTington, J. I..
Palmer and II. It. Hinton, with duct*
by Mr. and Mrs. Hinton, Messrs.

Wednesday from which he has suffered a broken hip. He was engaged in coaling up the engine for
the Kimberley train and had hold of
the rope connected with the coal
finite, Mr. Berrington standing at
that time on top of the tender. The
rope broke in his hunds, and losing
his balance, he was thrown to the
ground, a fall of a considerable distance. Just to what extent his hip
has been injured had not been learned at the time of going to press but
his friends all hope that he may have
a speedy recovery from his injuries.
He was taken to the hospital on u
stretcher and received treatment
right away.

sidewalk, cuusing Mrs. Weston to
stumble, the raised hoard striking
her on the cheek immediately below

there are many loose boards in different parts of the city which are
similarly dangerous.
Trophy Presented to Club on
Tuesday Evening; Noteworthy Gathering
Tuesday evening at the Glen Cafe
Kimberley, a complimentary banquet
was tendered the Kimberley Hockey
team hy the Kimberley Hockey Club
and citizens of Kimherley. A In
number were in attendance and
enjoyable time spent. After justice
was done a sumptuous feast, the
large silver trophy, emblematic of
the Intermediate Hockey championship of B.C., was presented by the
team to the Hockey Club, following
which loud cheers were given for
Kimberley's  worthy  representatives.
Among other things touched on by
a large number of ufter dinner
speakers was the matter of a covered
rink for Kimberley and judging
therefrom, there is little doubt but
that next winter will see a creditable
skating rink as the scene of all the
hockey games nnd ice sports there.
The excellent work done by the
team, the efficient management of
Mr. Ted Nagle, the genuine support
of the citizens to the team, and the
assistance rendered by Kimberley's
local paper, The Press, were all duly
acknowledged by toast and appropriately responded to.
A committee was appointed to look
into the matter of obtaiing a rink.
Mr. Boyd Caldwell, president of
the Hockey Club, was chairman of
the meeting.

Chiropractor Makes Tests For
Spinal Abnormalities With
New  Instrument
Electricity hus worked many won-
lers in the science of healing the
human body nnd bids fair to extend
Us field indefinitely as experts continue their experiments. One of the
latest developments is an electric
machine of rarely delicate precision
and adjustment which is designed to
assist the chiropractor In determining the exact location of spinal abnormality. It is known as the I'athe-
Ncuronieter, and the first of them to
lie used in Cranbrook has been installed by I'\ W. Oullugher, doctor of
hiroprnctic. It has already been
given considerable test, and the re-
ults have been such as to indicate
that it fulfils all the claims of its
Just as correct diagnosis is the
baslfl of ull success in medical treatment, exact location of spinal abnormalities is essential to complete
results in chiropractic, Experienced
chiropractors with proper training
have always prided themselves upon
their ability to diagnose the great
majority of ailments and lay their
trained  fingers on  the spinal cord.
But, just as in the case of the
medical practitioner, they sometimes
encounter complications that defy
ordinary analysis. The Pathe-Neuro-
meter is designed to overcome just
such difficulties, It is a delicate
strunient for the registering of body
temperature and points unfailingly to
the exact spot of any abnormality in
the spine, because such abnormality
always affects tho temperature of the
area affected. Having determined by
the meter the average temperature
of the body, a reading is then taken
of every section of the spinal column,
It is claimed that if the spinal
temperature shows any variation,
indicating trouble, the meter locates
it with unfailing precision, pointing
out the exact spot where adjustment
is required.
F. W. Gallagher, D.C., who has
hud considerable experience in analyzing by the ordinarily recognized
methods, states that he has tested
the new instrument by "readings1
on patients whose coses were already
exactly known, and in every case the
meter has corroborated the diagnostic
He is confident that it will prove
of the greatest help in his practice
and enable him to give better ser
vice than ever to his clients.

Mr. Sandilnnds is one of the real
old-timers in the country, his connection with the Kootenays dating
back to the eighties. He is naturally
full of reminiscences of those early
times, which nre full of interest to
all those at all interested ih the history and development of the Kootenays, He tells of nn interesting election in 188!) in this part of the country, in which Col. Baker was opposed
by a Mr. Laws, which the former
won by only four votes, Another
little anecdote concerns N. A, Wallinger, the present member feu* the
district, about thirty-five years or so
age, when he was working in the
vicinity of Perry Creek at some
mines, and Mr. Sandilands wns also
engaged in that neighborhood, doing

(Received too late for last week)
Mr. William A. Dray tun has a
small crew of men at work on the
ground known as the old Chinese
diggings, on Wild Horse Creek. They
have put up a small sluice box and
pipe line, and Mr. Drayton plans to
sink a shaft and drive u tunnel with
the purpose of testing the ground
before working it on a large scale.
Fort Steele now boasts a small
four-hole golf course, laid out by Mr,
Charles Edwards, of Cranbrook, and
the local golf enthusiasts seem to be
greatly enjoying this addition to our
thriving city.

daily services in the Catholic church
last week. He will spend a week in
each of several small towns in the
district before returning to Fort
Miss Ethel Kershaw entertained
some of her friends at her home one

The roud from Cranbrook to Foil
Steele is never iu good condition at
best, but at present it is one of
the worst in the country, rivalling
even the Kimberley road for honors.
The trip to Cranbrook has become

the most popular baking powder in Canada.
The mill started sawing again last
Thursday, after being closed down
for the winter months. Over ninety
per cent, of lust year's crew were in
their accustomed plaoes when the
j, whistle blew. The bad weather ex-
j] j perienced during the last week has
hampered Hunting operations to quite
an extent, and prevented the starting
of the night shift. The flume has to
be cleared of snow and ice every
morning before the logs can be
started on their trip to the mill pond.
The regular weekly meeting of the
Lumberton Club was held on Wednesday evening. Card prizes for last
month were presented to the following members; ladies' first, Mrs.
Clark; consolation, Miss E. Griffiths;
gents.' first, F. Kossovitch; consolation, W. Griffiths. The monthly
business meeting was held immediate-
ly after the card playing. The
question of suitable music for the
hall was brought before the meeting,
and after some discussion it was derided to leave the matter in abeyance
until the following week, when a
special meeting would be held. The
following were appointed a committee
for the present month: Mrs. Jones,
Mrs. Harvey Piper, Mrs. A. J. Robertson, Messrs. Jones, E. Woodske,
and August Woodske.
A meeting was held in the employees club On Thursday evening,
April 1st, for the purpose of discussing sport problems for the coming
season. It had become evident that
owing to two factions having sprung
up, one supporting football and the
other baseball, very little headway
would be made In either spoil this
year if the rivalry was maintained.
A turnout of thirty fans was present
when the meeting opened nnd it was
finally decided tn co-operate in all
branches of sport. A governing committee of five wns appointed to take
the situation in hand, the personel
elected being, chairman, Paul Storey,
H. W. Birch and Dyer Elderhing, representing the football interests; and

made of Frank Thompson, Harry

was recorded In the election of treasurer, Dan Luce and Fred Harris
each receiving fifteen votes. Harris
was the choice on the recount. It
was decided at this meeting that no
teams will he entered in any pro-1
posed league in the East Kootenay
district, this com fog season. Strong
efforts are being made to obtain not
only the finnacial, but also moral
support of the townspeople, and a
Sawdust league, consisting of teams
from the sawmill, planing mill, shipping and other outside departments,
will be the extent of activities in this
regard. Friendly games will of
course be arranged if possible with
outsiders, but in the past it has been
found that these outside games are
somewhat too much of a strain on the
financial resources when coming at
regular intervals. It has been de-
cdied to operate under the name of
"The Wardner Athletic Club," and a
membership fee of $1.00 is being
charged all and sundry who desire to
take part in either sport. A further
dollar will also be collected nt the end
of six months, so as to give the corn*
cittee something on which to work in
the arranging of winter sports.

"1 guess one must expect thoso
things on a railroad!"
Caroline moaned nt her in grief-
stricken intensity. "How can you be
as matter of fact about it? Don't
you realize what this means—to
poor Bob—"
Means he's in n hell of a jam,
I guess!"
Caroline forebore in despair. She
rose then, goading her quivering
body Into action, and started swiftly
to  finish  dressing.
"I'm going to him—I'm going to
Bnb—he will need help!"
Jane appraised her coolly; glanced
up ut the picture on the mantel, then
back to Caroline and remarked,
"It means—ever so much more to
me. I think you'd better let me see
Bob alone!"
Caroline stared at her. If it were
true that Bid) would rather see this
woman, Caroline would not stand in
the way; but the disgust over Jane's
honrtlessncss had not left her yet,
and Caroline did not think there wns
much real concern now behind June's
"Vou can go to him if you want
to," she cried stoutly, "hut I'm going,
too! I love Bob und you can't keep
me from him!"
June nodded, and drew out a ng-
garelte. "Of course, hut if I tell you
what he is to me—"
Caroline, in terror, stopped in the
movements of dressing. Jane smiled on, ever so sweetly, reaching over
the bureau for her handbag and taking from it a significant gold circlet,
which she held up to Caroline's eyes.
Caroline gasped—"No! No! You
can't mean—"
Oh, yes! Yes! I do menu just
that—Bob is my husband. You
wouldn't want to come between man
and  wife, would you?"
For the second time in the fatal
five minutes of bad news following
bad news, Caroline collapsed to the
bedside. Jane met her eyes boldly,
brazenly, anil ('uridine could not find
in them the hint of a lie she hoped
to find.
She finished her dressing now, apn-
theticnlly—courageously trying to
hide her hurt from the alien in her
room. And, finishing, she went
out—without a word. She waa
grimly and earnestly determined to
help Bob no matter what his former
relationship with June. Caroline
knew in her heart that somehow
Bob's part in this was abovebnard;
it was not in her heart to believe that
Bob would make love to her if he
was the husband of this woman, at
least without first telling her of the
fact and seeking n meeting on honest
But wait and search though she
ilid through thnt long day, nnd
through many long days that followed, there was no sight of Boh or
work from him. The wreck was
cleared away, the Transrockian flyers steamed on their wonted way,
and the excitement beenme a part of
the City's remembered past. The
charge of negligence of duty hung
in the air, to be clamped on Bob
should he ever be found. And the
trainmen talked—talked in wnys that
called him husband. Will you believe me if 1 tell you she took back
that message, rubbed out the name
of her 'husband,' and inserted a different name no less than four times.

Caroline did some  fust and  furious thinking during the next hour,
and  at  the end   of  that  time   she
Jipped over to the telegraph office
und with the connivance of her girl

Gyros Will Help The Fair
The Gyro Club was heard at this
stage of the proceedings, und ufter Dr.
Fergie had added his felicitations on
the objects of the meeting, he told
how the Gyro Club was taking hold
of the fair, in an endeavor to carry
it through to a thoroughly successful
conclusion. After calling for a roll
call of the members, he asked Bert
Sang, as the president of the respon-j
sible committee, to outline what was I
planned for the  fair.
The Gyros, said Mr. Sang, had undertaken all ihe arrangements for the
concessions and attractions for the
fair on September Hi, 17 and IS.
With the fair directors relieved of
this part of the responsibilities, he
was sure the district could be promised the best there was to be had in j

contest for contestants under 21,
open to the whole country, ond in
which there were fifty-three entries,
the first four places were taken by
Lawrence Foster, Margaret McClure.
Stewart McClure and Maurice Godderis. Most of the winners were
present in person to receive their
awards, which were handed to them
amid genera] applause.
Support   For   Agriculture
Mrs. J. Norgrove, speaking for the
Women's institute as its president,
assured the gathering that the Institute took pride in the successes
which had been achieved, and assured
lhe directors of the Agricultural Association that lhe Institute was keenly interested in the success of the
fair, and would do anything they
could to help the undertaking along.
Mr. Allan Graham, as president of
the Rotary Club, after humorously
referring to some of his fanning experiences, referred lo the advantages
the young farmers nl the pre.-ent
time were enjoying with lhe experience of their fathers, and the wide
knowledge, also, that Mr. Hay was
bringing to them. While adding his
congratulations also, he said they
owed a big debt to Mr. Hay. He
assured the gathering thut the Rotary Club has the farming interests
of the district at heart, and would
give it every assistance possible.
New  Westminster   Prizes
Representing the District Farmers'
Institute, A. B. Smith, in presenting
the awards won at the New Westminster fair, referred to the scientific
trend of farming, and the attraction
it has for those who would follow
farming with intelligence. He hud
seen more than anyone else, he
thought, of the work that Mr. Hay
was doing in spreading the gospel of
better farming methods, and he asked, why was the effort being made
to improve farming methods? The
basic reason, he felt, was a desire on
the part of the farmers to secure for
their families greater advantages and
comforts. Farm labor did not seem
attractive unless one had the vision
or the ability to reason out the cause
and effect of things, and he instanced
what men with vision had been able
to accomplish in various particular
lines of agricultural  endeavor.
The winners of the crop judging
classes at New Westminster, the
awards for which were a cup and
medals, were Margaret McClure, Ernest Worden and Maurice Godderis.
In the poultry judging, where they
won a cup, gold medals and a cheque
for $10, the same team was successful.    Likewise in the livestock judg-

In the previous article, a number of
Interesting hands were given in which
the proper le.nl waa discussed. Here is
another hand, of a similar type, that
has just been submitted by a correspondent:
Hearts — 9.6. 5, 2 	
Clubs — A. 10.8.4 l     Y
Diamonds —A, K, J, 7     lA       B :
Spades — 4 I      Z
No score, first game. Z dealt and hid
one heart. A and Y passed and B bid
one spade. Z bid two hearts, A and Y
passed and B bid two spades. Z bid
three hearts, A doubled and all passed.
What Is A's proper opening lead? A
should lead tbe dene* of bearta. He sad
his partner have all three suits so why
not lead trumps and thus prevent a
fossible trump by dummy. It is also a
and where the trump lead cannot hurt
partner for the bidding and A's trump
holding makes It certain that B cannot
hold any trump strength. For those
reasons it is a hand in which the trump
lead is ideal. With the trump opening,
t he three heart bid would have been defeated by one trick. With any other
opening, the declarer would have made
his contract; quite a difference.
Another hand has just been submitted
and the writer's opinion has been asked
as to the proper play.

dealt and bid one spade, A two hearts,
Y two spades and B passed. Z passed.
A hid three hearts, Y three spades and
all pasted. A opened the deuce of diamonds, How should Z play the hand,
provided only the dummy hand is exposed? Z should win the first trick with
the king of diamonds and lead the trey
o( diamonds, finessing the ten spot, lie
should now lead the eight of Spades
from dummy and fines t the jack from
Ids own hand. The purpose ol this
finesse is: First, to o .tch the king if it
Is only guarded onc\ in B's hand; and
second, to establish a reentry in trumps
In Y's hand, If the king of spades is in
A's hand, A, of cotrse, wins the trick
with the king and no matter what he
plays, Z must make three odd. If A
plays the ace of hearts, Z's king of
hearts will make. If A plays a dub, Z
lays the ace of hearts, Z's king of
iearts witl make. If A plays a clu .
should play the ace of clubs In dummy,
take two rounds of trumps, winning the
second round in dummy with the queen.
I Ie should then discard either two clubs
or two hearts on the ace queen of diamonds. Played in this way, YZ will
only lose one spade trick and three
heart tricks at most. It Is an Interesting
hand and very Instructive because It is
n tvpe that comes up so frequently.
With this kind of hand, don't lead the
queen of spades toward the king. There
is nothing to gain and If the king Is on
your left as in this hand, you willlose a
trick. Play it out In that way and see
what happens.
