Lecturer Draws Attention to
Lack of National Spirit
In Canada
much toIFproud OF
Owing to other events heing held
th«t night, and the comparatively
short notice given, there was not a
very large attendance at the K.P.
Hall on Monday evening, when Mr.
Walter McRaye lectured under the
auspices of the Native Sons of Canada, the subject being "Canadlanis-
ing Canada." Mr. McRaye Is well
qualified to speak on this subject,
having travelled very extensively
through the country for the put
thirty years or more, and watched its
development along many lines quite
Included among those present were
a few from outside points, some from
Kimberley being noted among the
audience. The meeting opened with
the singing of 0 Canada.
The chairman, Dr. Rutledge, in*
traduced the speaker, Mr. Walter
McRaye, and expressed his regret
that there was not a larger audience
present. He also gave a brief outline of the speaker's work.
"If you go out on the street today,
•aid Mr. McRaye, "and ask any man
born in Canada his nationality, the
anawer will invariably be English,
Mah or Scotch. They are recorded
that way, not as Canadians, but in
the nationality of their parents.
A Proud Record
"We are still proud of those Canadians of whom people wondered
during the war, 'What will happen
to those poor Canadians now?' At
Ypres, the Germans still have reason
to remember Canadian heroism,

Lut Thursday Kimberley wu fav-
ortd with a visit from the Hon. T.
D. Pattulo, Mlnbter of Lands in the
Oliver Government.
Arriving by auto at 11.30 a.m. in
company with F. M. MacPherson, of
thla city, an impromptu lunch was
hurriedly arranged and many ot
the Kimberley friends of the minister
and the party of which he is a member
were in attendance. The affair took
place at the Canadian Cafe.
* During the very informal discussion which ensued, matters of local
and provincial importance pertaining
to party were discussed. The Kimherley people took up with the
minister many matters which they
considered in the interests of the
town should receive the attention of
the government, such as the drainage of the town and district, and the
opening up of Sullivan Creek.
Their petitions were given a sympathetic hearing and while many matters discussed were outside the control of Ihe minister, those present
were given every assurance thnt they
would receive careful consideration
by the proper departments.
Among those present were Roy
Clemens, R. E. Crerar, T. Bailey, Dr.
Davies, Chris. Foote, J. W. Brault,
Phil Johnson, Jack Sanderson, Fred
Swltier, Geo. Griffith, R. Burke and
F. M. MacPherson.
The party left that afternoon for
Cranbrook, ond Mr. Patullo left that
day for lnvermere, proceeding the
following day to Golden.
Again the attention of the public,
and the fishing enthusiasts particularly, is called to the fact that the
fishing laws must be complied with.

Band  and  Athletic  Teams
From Sister City to Take
Part in Celebration
According to information given to
the committee in charge of the 24th
of May celebration here, the holiday
next week Ik to bc observed at the
Sullivan Mine, Kimberley, so as to
allow the participation of Kimberley
people in the hig celebration here
that day.
Aa previously announced the Kimberley band will hnve a prominent
place in the parade, and also during
the remainder of the day's program.
In addition the Kimberley baseball
club will put a team in the field tn
go after the G. W. V. A. cup, which iii
now held by Wycliffe, who will be
defending it. For the football
trophy, now held by Kimberley, two
teams from that place will try con'
elusions in the finals, the elevens
from the Tunnel and Bharchmoni
Park being the teams who will contend for the possession of the trophy. There will also be a lacrosse
team froin Kimberley in action here
that day, facing a local team on the
field. Tug-of-war teams from Kimberley will also be on hand, it is expected, and there is also likely to be
some Kimberley entries in the athletic events.
With this support from Kimberley
in the way of entries in the events,
it is expected that there will be a
good representation of their supporters on hand, adding thier quota to
the crowd for the day. In return it
is understood that the G.W.V.A. will
endeavor to enlist better support for
the celebration held in Kimberley on
the 1st of July, among the people
of Cranbrook.

Immersed throughout with satirical
humor, abounding in witty dialogue,
yet freely flavored with stirring romance and tragedy, "Pygmalion,"
the play presented by the University
Mayers to a large audience in the
Auditorium on Tuesday night, proved a very finished performance.
This play well deserves to rank first
among the many popular productions
staged by the Players' Cluh.
Based on the story of Pygmalion,
King of Cyprus, and famous sculptor,
who in the uld Greek legend, which
bears his name, besought Venus to
bestow life upon the image of a lovely woman which he had fashioned and
had grown to love, a simitar theme
is made use of, producing a delightful comedy-romance dealing with the
eternal conflict between Bcience and
emotion—the first love story hy the
great English playwright, Bernard
The Trans formation
The story centers round »n eccentric professor of phonetics, Henry
Higgins, who in boasting about his
ability to teach various prnnouncia-
tions, points out as an example, a
ragged little cockney flower girl
whom he declares he can puss off as
duchess within six months. The
girl in question, overhearing this remark, appears the next morning ut
the professor's laboratory, expressing
her desire to become a "lidy in a
flawr shop" and to be such she must
"speak more genteel." From being
amused, the professor, effectively
portrayed by Mr. Peter Price, becomes interested in the case and wagers with his newly-formed acquaintance, Col. Pickering, played by Mr.
Harry Warren, that he can pass th!s
"guttersnipe" off as a duchess hy the
end of six months. He is, however,
successful as far as her pronunciation is concerned. Ridiculous situations and conversations arise when
Eliza is thrust into .-weiety. There is
interest in watching her change to
a beautiful and educated girl, lapsing

Built   Church   at   Million
With Part of Hit
Seemingly very often of late have
we heen culled upon to note the'
breaking of the links that bind the
present to the past so far as East
Kootenay is concerned. One of these
most interesting characters passed
away on Monday morning through the
death of Piele Cronin, more familiarly known as Indian Pete, the
discoverer of the St. Eugene mine.
The story of the deceased is well
known to most people, how
years ago he discovered the big
ore body at Moyie and with Father
Cocola and Jas. Cronin were the first
owners. From a sale of the property
to the Consolidated the Indian got a
little sum of money, most of which
he put into the church at the Mission,
which stands as a monument to his
generosity today, he having given the
church to the Oblate Fathers after
he had had it erected. The deceased
was truly a landmark and one of the
best Indians that the Kootenay has
known. His was a true Indian face
of the pure blood Kootenay. Piele,
however, had modern ideas, and was
the first to build a modern house on
the reserve. The story goes, however, that after building the house
he set his tepee up on the inside.
The deceased for a number of
years hus been in receipt of an allowance from the Consolidated Mining
& Smelting Company, a small sum
being paid him by them monthly, he
being in this way on their monthly
pay roll. As a mark of respect for
the old Indian, the C.M. & S. Co.
wus represented at the funeral, which
look place on Wednesday morning,
hy Normun Burdett and Mel O'Brien.
The company also contributed the
sum of $50.00 towards the expenses
of the funeral. Indian Pete had
pluce of honor in the Dominion Day
parade at the Kimberley celebration.
Besides his wife, the deceased
leaves a daughter, the wife of David
Clements, to mourn hia loss.

performance that of D'Arcy Marsh
as a realistic dustman, must not be
overlooked. Alfred Doolittie, the father of 'Liza, classes himself as "one
of the undeserving poor," and "a
thinking man." His philosophy of life,
and in particular, of "middle-class
morality," is most amusing. He is
shown to best advantage after having
inherited three thousand a year from
an American philanthropist on the
recommendation of Prof. Higglns, as
being the greatest philosopher in
Part.   Well   Portrayed
Indeed, all the characters play
their part in providing humor and in
developing the plot. Miss Gwen Mus-
grave and Miss Grace Hope ably
played the roles of Mrs. Higgins and
Mrs. Eynsford-Hill, respectively, the
mothers of Henry and of the flapper
Clara (Miss Avis Pumphrey) and her
brother, Freddie (Mr. Willoughby
Matthews), an effeminate society
youth. Miss Honor Kidd as Mr*.
Pearce cleverly handled   a   difficult
fiart, while Mr. Gough and Mr. How-
ett, as bystanders, and Miss Doris
Crompton as a parlor maid, although
with little to do, managed their respective  roles   effectively.
Although the Shavian touches of
wit are scattered throughout and
there is an almost exaggerated
amount of satire on English middle-
class life, nevertheless, the play contains some fine serious touches. Romance is displayed in the heroine's
growing to  love  her egotistical   in

Wednesday afternoon the Nelson
studio was the scene of an unfortunate fire through which Mr. Nelson, besides losing a considerable
amount of material and equipment,
lost practically all his negatives,
most of which he prized very highly,
especially as the majority of them
cannot be replaced. It is presumed
that the fire started from a defective
installation of an extension cord.
Mr. Nelson had only recently located in his new premises, having now
one of the finest studios in the province. From waiting room to back
laboratory, the appearance and appointment of the studio and work
shop were the acme of perfection.

(Author of "Ferguson on cAuction'Bridge
Ciwfi-ltt Hli ty Hoyle. Jr.
In a recent article an analysis was
made of the take-out of partner's no-
trump when second hand hud passed.
One of the points emphasized was that
if the original no-trump bidder didn't
like the take-out, he should bid two no-
trump. Since that time the writer has
received several inquiries as to the type
of hand that would justify a two no-
trump bid over a take-out of one no-
trump by partner with a bid of two
hearts or two spades. The easiest way
to answer that question is by asking
one. Suppose your partner bid one spade
and Becond hand passed, with what
kind of hand would you bid one no-
trump? Answer that question correctly
and you will know when to bid two no-
trump over partner's take-out of two
hearts or two spades. The object of all
correct bidding is to arrive at the best
bid of the conjoined hands; that is, tht
best bid of twenty-six cards, not of thirteen. For example, suppose your partner bid one spade, second hand passed
and you held the following cards:
Hearts — A, Q, 4
-Clubs-K, J, lp,7
Diamonds — Q, ,,, /, 2,
Spades — 6, 3
The correct bid is undoubtedly one no-
trump. Why? Because experience has
shown that when your partner bids a
suit and you have less than three cards
of that suit, you will have a better
chance for game at tome other suit or
no-trump. This is une of the steps in the
process of finding out the best bid of
the combined hands. If you don't deny
help for partner's suit bid, how can you
telf him the kind of hand that you have.
Learn to "mirror" your hand to your
partner, that is. tefl him plainly aud
clearly by your bidding just what kind
of hand you have, Fur that reason, suppose you bid one nu trump with the
following hand:
Hearts — A, 0,4
Clubs-K, J, 10, 7
Diamonds — y, J, 7, %
Spades — 6, J
Second hand passes, your partner bids
two spades and fourth hand passes.
Don't you think you ought tu bid two
no-trump for exactly the same reason
that Vou would bid one no-trump with
that hand over a one spade bid by partner? The principles are exactly the same
In each instance.
In the following hands, there is no
■core, you are the dealer and have bid
one no-trump. Second hand has passed,
vour partner has bid two spades and
ourth hand has passed, What would
you now bid?

The following hand is an excellent
example of gi><i(| play, so study it carefully. Note now tne declarer figured out
the only possible chance fur game.
Hearts— 10, 4
Clubs —K, 0.10,9,7,5

No score, first game. Z dealt, bid one
no-trump and all passed. A opened the
four of spades. Y played a low spade, B
the jack und A won the trick with the
ace. I low should he plan the play of the
combined hand? '/. must lead the deuca
uf clubs from his hand and play tha
aueen front dummy. If this card forced
the ace, he can finesse against the jack
on the next rqund. A good player, however, would not play his ace on the first
round, so, in tliat cubp, V. is up -ugainit
u difficult problem, lie must set his
club suit ut once l>cfore the queen of
diamonds, his only possible reentry
card, is taken out of dummy. For that
reason, / must make one of two plays:
(a) he can lead a luw club, hoping that
the ace is now xingle or (b) he can lead
the king uf dubs, noping that the jack
is single. Either play is a gui'»s but une
or the other must be nude for the only
hope for game iti to set up the clubs. As
a matter of (art, the king uf clubs would
have been tlie correct play ut trick
three for It originally held the jack und
four of clubs,

A serious situation has developed
in connection with the matter of
titles to minerals claims in the national park areas in the railway belt
of this province. It has been held
by the Privy Council in England
in a British Columbia case that tlie
precious metals   in this belt are the
property of the province although the
surface rights are under the administration of the Dominion government and these mineral rights have
always been administered by tin'
province and crown grants were
available on payment to the Dominion government of a dollar per acre
thus permitting the mine owner to
acquire title to both the mineral and
surface rights. Owing to ^ome agree
ment mado between tho two governments in connection with Dominion
park . ineludiiiK tbo Bnnff-Windor-
mi re road allowance strip, i; now appears 'hat a serious difficulty has
arisen which has caused nil operation
of quartz minej in park areas to be
suspended and Mining Recorders
havo been advised not to nccept records of location of mineral claims in
park areas in tli.. railway belt.

O one here would ever have known it, but this
week is supposed to have been B.C. Proiluels
week. B.C. manufacturers were this week to place
before the consumers in this province the wide
variety of goods actually turned out from B. C.
factories, and the advantages that accrue to everyone in following out lhe policy of buying B. C, made
goods when all conditions surrounding the deal are
The argument used is too sound for any logical
contradiction, but like many other worthy causes,
it falls down when the gospel is not spread energetically enough. Xot much has heen heard of the
B, C, Products Week in this part of the country.
The manufacturers and those interested in the dis-
tribution of the products whicli come from B. t\
factories are apparently so absorbed in holding the
coast market for their output, and then developing
an export business, that lhc cultivation of a market
ti- for away from Vancouver as the East Kootenay,
dues not enter into their program, This territory
i- oi course served more expeditiously and economically from the prairie centres, despite the lower carload rates from lhe east through lo the coast, which
is probably the reason that with most wholesale
firms this territory is tacked ou to Alberta. But so
lung as the East Kootenay belongs geographically
lo B.C., and the government collects the taxes and
builds lhe roads, the manufacturers ought to at least
give lhe people who desire it the chance to buy
B.C. made goods.
It is understood that a party of coast business
men will this fall he taking a trip through this part
of the province. Perhaps it is not too much to hope
lhat lhe scales may fall from their eyes at this lime,
so they may realize lhat this part of B.C., whicli
may not mean very much to them in a business way,
i.s making very substantial contributions to lhe industrial progress and the general development of
ihe province.

$20 Clubs Till Then Mean
Bonuses of 80,000 Credits-
Last Two Weeks Will Decide
Knotted tight in the battle for
leadership, with only a few credits
separating the entrants, in the Herald's Salesmanship Campaign, the
hard working candidates are making
the race one of the must exciting
over staged by a newspaper.
Enthused by the great opportunity
to will $2,500 in prizes by June 6,
all are going nfter subscriptions in
earnest and already it appears that
the credit totals will grow faster during thi? next ten days than they havo
at any time thus far.
With the end of the 80,000 extra
credits coming Wednesday, May 28t
candidates and their friends nre show-
inn speed now, for they are coming
tu it complete realization of the
meaning of tbe extra credit offer
and are striving to get every $20
club before Wednesday night brings
an end to this big offer.
No Limit to Number
There is no limit to the number of
$20 clubs b candidate may huve, no
one can have too many. Tbe more
a person gets of them the nearer he
or she is to being the proud posSBQSOr
of the Overland Six Coach. Better
win by u mile than lose liy n foot,
and the latter i.s what candidates are
likely to  do if they  neglect to take
advantage <>f the clubs of so.ooo:
credits each. J
Only Sure Road ia Work
Thc sure road to success is doing
a little better than tbe next hest. |
The cruciul test is at hand. If you
ever intend to do anything big in the
race, do it now. This is final ond fair
warning, if you entertain any desire
of being declared winner of tjie

ftW&rded June 5t do not full to turn
in every available subscription this
week while $20 clubs still earn 80.-
000 extra credits.
It is impossible to overestimate the
importance of this week; to some it
will mean a glorious victory; to others who fail to take advantage of the
opportunity, it will mean defeat.
This is the time to increase your
credit total.-* and make sure of one
of the special prizes, tbe winning of
which means a better chance to make
the Overturn! Six Conch your own.

The candidates ull seem to have
plunged into this big week on their
toes. The question before ull is,
wbo will be the leaders ut the close
of the second period, Wednesday
night'.' Wbo will get the start for
fast and furious race to the finish
on June 5? It is going to be full of
thrills every hour. Every minute
and every flushing second means a
lot to the candidate who is to win
first prize and thc honor that goes
with it.
The race is so close it seems thut
a subscription or two would change
the positions very much. But it is
more than u subscription or two that
the candidute wants. It is leud over
the competitors, a few five-year subscriptions, a lot of twos and a world
of ones. It is a real race and daily
it is becoming more exciting as candidates, not satisfied for one minute
to even think of defeat, ore piling
up credits that will win a fine closed

Believing that man) are coming to see the fallacy of
paying rent or squandering money for cars, gasoline and
upkeep, but are determined to own a home of their own and
thus provide for the future, we offer a few words of advice.

According to all reports, the provincial government will soon have to
decide another knotty point in connection with its policy of granting
heer licenses on petition. They haw
recently sanctioned the establishment
of beer parlors at wet centres in dry
ridings, and now comes the point as
to whether the licenses are going to
he issued in dry centres in wet ridings, or whether the question can be
re-opened for a second vote, a local
ption vote, as it were.
Advocates of a beer license fo: the
city of Cranbrook have been active
now for some little time, and this
week the claim is made that I lit re
are now over seven hundred names
subscribed to the petitions on that
behalf, a sufficient number, it is
claimed, to allow of the question
to be re-opened. The re-opening of
the brewery shortly is giving point
to the petition, the argument being
used thut the opening of a beer parlor here would tend to increase the
demand for the local production, and
bo help the town to lhat extent.
So far as can be learned there is
no  organized   move  being  made  t
counteract the  petition, which  it  i
understood is to he sent forward t
lhe proper quarter shortly.

up her fall sweet pickles antl sho set
her nieee  to  peel  while she  talked.
She was glad something liy the name
of  Shannon   had   shown  a spark  of
'get   up."     It   was  more  than  ehe
bad   expected.     Molly   might   in   the

fortune, could grasp the reality of
the   miracle,  her  departure was at
hand. Tbe last precious garment was
folded away In the old tin trunk from
Aunt Lena's attic—twin to the one
that stood by ber mother's bed.   The
made-over black taffeta hung meticulously straight, over the back of a
chair.    The new hat reposed in state
on the bureau.    The new shoes stood
beside  the  chair.     All  waiting with
a  tense   and   breathless  expectancy.
Molly,  who   had  never owned  more
than one new garment  in her whole
life before, was experiencing the ec-
stacy of possession.    She pulled down

key with  unconscious proprietorship

of auto accidents one day recently,
no fewer than three being recorded
in the near vicinity of that place.
Mr. J. R, Wade of the Canadian
Pacific Railway at Kingsgate, had a
serious accident when driving home
the other afternoon. He was coming from Sandpoint, when his car
turned completely over and righted
itself on the road again. He waa
going at a moderate rate and another car came out of a lane on to the
main highway. Mr. Wade, to avoid
hitting the car, tried to turn, but
his car got into a rut and when he
saw that he could not get by he turned out of the rut to slow down and
the car turned over completely. It
was one of the latest type, a closed-
