Crunbrook, B.C.
Dour Sir:
At today's meeting of the Northwest
.Mining Association a resolution was
unanimously carried dealing wltll a
phase of tlie lead mining situation.
For your Information 1 am forwarding
copy of resolution herewith, with the
ro'iuost that you give tlie mutter serious consideration und take action along such Hues as your good judgment indicates.
Immediately subsequent to the meeting the following self explanatory
telegram wus dispatched to Senator
"Your effort secure reciprocal agreement between Canadn and Unlt"d
States providing for free re-entry of
lead bullion to country of origin heartily commended today. Movement inaugurated to gain support botli sides
international lino. Adoption would
insure uninterrupted development and
greater prosperity in all border district.   Copy of resolution follows."
This matter is also to be taken up
nt once by the Mining Bureau of the
Spokane Chamber of Commerce.
Vours cordially,,
F. C. Bally, Secretary.
Whereas Senator   Poindoxtor   has
Initiated an effort to bring about a
reciprocal agreement between Canada
uud tho United States, providing that
lead bullion derived from ores shipped
across the international line,   either
way, may be returned free of duty to
the country of origin.
And whereas, such agreement would
not In any way Interfere with the lead
schedules provided for in the Fordney
Tariff bill now before Congress und
by which Import duties of two and
one-eighth cents per pound upon lead
In ore of foreign origin are provided.
And whereas, adoption of such reciprocal agreement with Canada would
provido altcmu'ivi smelting outlets
fur ore from districts adjacent to the
intertionai line in B. O. and
Washington, thus promising more un*
interrupted development and greater
prosperity in both.
Now. therefore, bo it resolved, that
Northwest Mining Association, in regular weekly meeting assembled, this
Lfith day of January. 1928, heartily
dorses and commends tho action of
nator Poindexter and pledges its
support in any manner thnt may
bring about such reciprocal arrangement by legitimate means. It also
;ills upon otlier members of the Con
greaslonal delegation from this state
to support tlte efforts of Senator Poin
dexter and suggests that tho matter bo
immediately laid before pnbll (.organization;, in mining districts in thii
state and British Columbia to thc ond
Hint It may receive careful Considers
tion on both sides of tbe international
line and such recommendations as
may seem proper to impress the desires of both peoples upon their rus-
poctlve governments.
And bo it further rOBOlved, that the
officers of this organization bo andj
hereby are directed to send copies of;
this resolution to the Honorable Mac-i
kontlo King. Premier of Cannda; Senator Poindexter; the Chnirmnn, Finance Committee, United States Son-

d addition to tiie . Central School
building, plans for -vhjcli liavo beon
prepared aud  made public, and    tlie
ther for u 4-roomdd building somewhere in tiie neighborhood of tlie high
school. No plans for this have boen
prepared, but If the ratepayers favor
tlie matter* will be taken up by
the board with tlie government. Tbe
■Hoard is holding the plebiscite in
iccordance with a promise they mado
io thoso in attendance at a meeting
liold iu the city ball just prior to the
Civic elections. II will bo held ou
Wednesday, February 15th, at the
City Hall, and since tho board has
decided to lay tiio matter before the
ratepayers in this open fashion, it Is
up to the latter to make u point of
recording their views.
The opening of a now room iu February entailing another addition to
tho central school staff, the position
was offered to Miss B. Curry, formerly of Vancouver, at a salary of $1100
per year. Miss Curry lias been called

Mr. B. A. Moorhouse of this city In
tho preparation of the plans for the

into all the proposals which have been
hcought forward to solve the problem.
Including that of a new building somewhere in the addition south of the
city proper. At a brief meeting of the
school board on Saturday morning
Mr. Swan reported verbally on his
findings, whicli will be incorporated
In a written report to be submitted
to tbe Board ln a few days. Mr. Swan
is of the opinion that thc plans which
have already been drawn up are tho
most economical and satisfactory,
giving the maximum accommodation
for tho minimum cost. To put up n

funds thnt will bo available, would

however, that 1920 was a record year,
with the industry putting forth every
effort at increased production.
Tho previous high year was 1918,
when the scale was 1.701,000,000 or
slightly less than 1021. "The timber

s of Kast Kootenay when they
returned me by n substantial raajor-
ty." said Mr. Benttio today, "but in
iftiisldoratlon of Uio work done in
Jritish Columbia by Hon. Dr. King
luring tho past five years, and his
election by Premier King, I feel that
am best serving tlie Interests of my
■oiistitueucy and Canada as a whole
by relinquishing my sent in favor of
Dr. King."
"Hon. Dr. King is the only man in
the west for whom I would take this
stop," said Mr. Belittle, "Por.twenty-
five years we pioneered in Southeastern British Columbia, and much as
1 should like to go to Ottawa, I feel
that there is something greater than
my personal interests. Therefore, I
have decided to retire in favor of Dr.
King. Ho knows conditions In the
West bettor than anyone else. He
lias been personally Interested In Uie
doevlnpment of tho lumbering, coalmining and quartz-mining industrlos
In Western Cauadu and has become an
authority upon highway extension.
The system of good rouds lu British
Columbia is largely duo to the activity of Hon. Dr. King, and good roads
arc necessary to tlte development of
my constituency.''
"I have beon placed In a rather em-
hurras mur position, and it has been
difficult for me to make a decision,"
eald Mr. Beattie, "but I feel that I
have acted in the best Interests of
those who supported me."
Mr. Beattie returned to Cranbrook
on thc night bont from Victoria, while
Hon. Dr. King will leave for Ottawa,
via Cranbrook on Wednesday. He will
bo in the federal capital for a fow
days only, and will then return to
this province for thc purpose of cleaning up the unfinished work of his do

There seems little doubt but that
the new minister of public works will
be returned by acclamation, as has
been tho case with all tbe 14 ministers of the Mackenzie King cabinet

With the big curlers' donee over

another year, it is planned to get
tho local curlers busy once again at
tiio rlnk. A local bonsplel is being
talked of, and Will likely get away to
a start next weok, if tlie weather
holds up- In addition to tho cups
which have been competed for by local rinks In tlie regulur draws, two
otlier cups havo been promised, which
ought to stimulate interest In lho lo-
i*al club. One Is a cup proscnted by
W. F. Cameron, and other from W. K. j
W0rden> While definite rules have
not been formulated fnr either, It Is
understood tiiat for tha Cameron Cup
a handicapping arrangement may be
mado so that an admittedly strong
rink going, up against a weaker one
will be placed under proper handicap. For the Worden Cup it has
boon suggested that it lie held as an
open trophy, challengeable at any
time aud by any skip. Seconds for
tin. Worden Cup are being prcsonted
by Mr. AV. H. Wilson.
IltR probable that there will be a
meeting of the curling club very
shortly, when the proposals will be
laid beforo tlie members.

It was ln honor of tho memory of

mr what else can account for tlie

tbe anniversary of the birth of Scotland's best-loved son?
It was ro-a! artistic genlUfl which

Tho prizes won by the Cranbrook
rink at the Lethbrldge bonsplel were
given a place of honor in the centre,
and high over all at each side of the
stage, were sketch portraits of two
local curling celt-brities which interested  everyone.
The grand march with which the

of color and action, led by Mr. Alan
Graham manfully scrurln' the skirl-
in' pipes to the stirring strains of the
"Cock o' the North,'' while tripping
feet threaded the mazes of the opening number, the scene was animated
and picturesque. It fair garred ths

Word comes from Invermere that
tho Bonff-Windermere trail, which
the Dominion government lias been
working on since beforo tho war, ls
nearlng completion. This Bluo Highway will lead In an almost direct Hue
from the Canadian National Park to
San Francisco, passing through a famous district where tho spirit of the
Last Creat West has always existed
in its most romantic tlmo. The inhabitants of tho Valley are already figuring on the Influx of a fabulous number of automobiles from both north
and south; with tourists eager to aeo
tho wonderful pecnery of mountain,
lake und river, tho bot sulphur springs
of Sinclair and Windermere, and to
*!CJoy tho big game hunting, boating
golfing and other sports in this paradise of good tilings.
Of nll the big companies and en-
teiiprlBlng concerns, tho Canadian
Pacific Railway has done most to
add to the natural attractions of tho
now famous Columbia •Valley, It is
traversed by a railway which has replaced tiio steamers which formerly
connected Golden with Lake Winder-
more, Into which they used to float
through tlie wide mouth of thc Columbia. It is now reported that tho C-
P. R. will construct a typical old-time
Hudson's Bay fort on the site of thi
ruins which slill exist where David
Thompson eroded his fort fn 1807,
on tbe hill below which Robert Ran
dolp Bruco has built his beautiful modern bungalow. History records the
story of David Thompson's discovery
of Lake Windermere moro than a con
tury ago. He came In with a party
from the south, fell out with his companions, decided to push on further
north nnd spout, his first winter alow
nt the head nf Windermere Lake, having to watch out for hostile Indians
from his lonely fort; hence bis reason
for selecting tho site, lie could com

whole surrounding country, thus be-

robiblllon Seems lo be Prohibiting
Figures of approximate accuracy
aro beginning to be available throughout tho United States showing tho effect of the prohibition law.
Under the license system there was
a commerce In bard liquor and beer
sufficient to allow a quantity of two
quarts por month to an army of twenty million drinkers.
Under tho prohibition* law, giving
effect to tho widest estimates or illicit Ihjuor Bulling, lt is reasonably
certain that thero is not more than enough to give one quart per month to
two million drinkers.
Mr. H. 0. Wells, the English writer,
coming to Washington as a correspondent at the Ponce Conference,
bringing with him the British Idea
that prohibition was a Joke, gave out
;i statement on the day of hfs sailing
for home. In which he doilarod himself convinced that prohibition in the
United States is a fixture, and that
lho days of the bootlegger are numbered.
This agrees with the report made by
tbe two Labor members of the British
rlianicnt, C. H. Stick and J. E. Dav-
ion, sent to the States for an Investigation of prohibition. They reported tho prohibition system a success
ilong economic lines; marked by an
entire absence of spending the pay
cheque for drink on payday before
going home; and that the illicit traffic
in drink depended for Its buyers upon
thoso who bad learned to drink beforo tho prohibition law was passed
This class of buyers is dying out; and
uo new class Is being taught to drink
in  its place.—Vancouver Sun.

OTTAWA.— Only 110,000
men and women out of an approximate total of 400,000 lia^o so far exercised their right to ballot on thc disposal of the army canteen fund surplus in the hands of the government,
and which amounts to raoro than
$2,000,000, It has beon announced by
tho Department of Soldiers' Civil Itc-
establlshmont at Ottawa. Tiio balloting has been iu progress for several
weeks and closes on February 1. In
returned soldier circles here lt Is not
expected that the total vote will exceed 30,000.
The question is now being raised
among war veterans, and In government circles, as to whether or not the
funds can bo disposed of as a result
of the plebiscite, owing to the comparative smallness of the vote being
registered, It was s:tid that this point
would have to receive the consideration of the Federal cabinet beforo action could be taken,
A tentative solution put forward
hy officials of the Croat War Veterans* Association Is that In tho event
ot the plebiscite being disregarded,
tho disposal of the funds could be
settled by a series of meetings of vet
erans lliroughout. Canada.
Officials ut tlie D. S. t'. lt. are
pointing io the advisability of veterans taking advantage of the opportunity and casting tholr ballots prior
to the expiration of tiie voting period.

Hurry motlier! Even a sick child
loves lho "fruity" taste of "California
Fig Syrup" aud it never fails to open
the bowels. A teaspoonful today may
prevent a sick child tomorrow. If
constipated, bilious, feverish, fretful,
has cold, colic, or if the stomach is
sour, tongue coated, breath bad, re
member a good cleansing of the little
bowels is often all that is necessary.
Ask your druggist for. genuine "California Fig Syrup" which has directions for babies and children of all

must say "California" or you may get
an imitation fig syrup.

David Thompson was horn ou April
30, 1770 ,ln St. John the Evangelist
Parish, Westminster, Kngland, of David ad Ann his wife, of Welsh extraction (his speech proclaimed that origin.) When the boy was 2, hts father
died, indigent, and young David was
placed In the 'charity' -school-—now a
girl's school, and slill under the Abbey's shadow, tho "Grey Coat School" |
of Queen Anne's foundation, to "edu
cute poor children In the principles
returned of piety and virtue, and thereby lay
foundation for sober und Christian
llfo." That training marked Thompson's whole career; even In tlie most
dissolute |perIod of fur-mile. Entering when 7, at 14 he was apprenticed for seven years to tho Hudson's
Hay Co., which paid a five pound fee
for him. Thompson was an apt scholar and studious; as he had no home
to go lo, his holidays were chiefly
spent ln tlie Abbey (Westminster,)
particularly the Henry VII. Chapel.
Hfs favorite boolts were: Tales of the
Genii, Persian and Arabian Tales.

divided, first amongst the Creos and
Asslnlboines (near the site of Prince

(having broken bis right leg) in ns-

the following spring surveyed the
Saskatchewan and Hayes Illvers to
Vork, 750 miles. He wintered again
at Cumberland, studying, and then
next year went back to Vork to help
rebuild it. Tho following years, 1702,
3, 4. 5, he (ravelled all over the prairies between Hudson's Bay and the
Rockies, and on May 23, 1797, left the
Hudson's Bay Company employ. His
note-book reads:
"This dny left the services of the
Hudson's Bay Company ami entered

Pounds per year; then probably the
highest sum paid for any one of his
Thonftwn was welcomed by the
Nor'-Wosters, as boundary matters
and tho competition of the Hudson's
Bay Company made the services of a
man of science valuable. His flrBt
commission was to define tho 40tli
parallel to the mountains; to visit the
Missouri head; to search for fossils;
and determine positions of the N. AV.
Co. posts. It was to his liking; and
ho makes this note:
"How very different; the liberal
nnd public spirit of this N. W. Co.,
of merchants from Canada, from tlie
mean selfish policy of the H. B. Co.,
styled 'Honorable,' and who nt little
expense might have had the northern
purt ot this ocntineut surveyed t& the
Pacific ocean, nnd greatly extended
tbelr trading posts. Whatever they
havo done, the British government
bas obliged them to do."
This commission occupies
months, in which he co.ered 4.000
miles of survey—Including the north
nnd south shores of Lake Superior
from Duluth of Fort William; Rainy.
Red, Winnipeg, Swan, Assinlbolne
und Souris river systems; aid the
Mississippi nnd Missouri heads.
Then he went on to Lake La Biche,
and, in 1799, to survey the Athabasca
river system. On his way to Grand
Portage, (which was removed to Fort
William In 1S01, after Thompson had
found it to bo In United States territory) Thompson stopped at He a la

his tlmo and knowledge. In tho spring
of 1S00 ho went to the new Rocky
Mountain House whero ho stayed two
I years, exploring the eastern Koekies,
i spurs aud passes from tho Bow lu
i tlie south, to the Saskatchewan In the
north, learning all he could of ua*

then (1800) that ho first met Indians
from west of the mountains (Kootenays), and he sent two men. LaUassi
and Lo Blanc, back witli them to'pro*
mote trade and reconnoitre routes,
Theso two men were, therefore, the
(Irsl whites to cross tlie Upper Coltini

In 1S05 (the year Simon Fraser wa;
sent across) the N.W. Company, busing decided to enter the country wes
oi1 ibe mountains, called Thompson to
ocHUCil- and late tho following
(Frasor having tarried iu New Caledonia, ns he called Northern B.C.) li
was ordered to get ready.
Great and secret preparations were
made iJaco Finlay having been quietly sent over to b.a^c the trail.) lest
iho Hudson's Bay Company should
precede them, uud by spring liS07, Iho
great adventure was begun. Its ob-
Jetc was simply to open trade with
Iho over-mountain natives (previous
efforts on acount of Peignn enmity
and native fear, having been futile)
and to find, by a pass south of tho
Peaco (that of Meckenzle and Fraser)
another route to the desired country
uf tbo Columbia.
Ho crossed by (now) Howse Pass
'called such after Joseph Howse, a
Hudson's Bay Company clerk, who
foWowetl Thompson's trail two years
later,) came down tho blueberry, and
reached the Columbia, near where
(now) is Moberiey station, on the Canadian Pacific railway main line on
June 30, 1807'. Ho ascended it to Its
source and thnt autumn built "Koot-
eniii House" (about one mile northwest of Atlinlmtr, where the Columbia
leaves Lake Windermere, and just
north of Toby Creek, but a quarter
mile distant from that creek's mouth,

Wintering there he next year frosted Canal Flat (McGllllvary Portage),
lo the Kootenay Hivor (MeGillivnry's
Blvcr) called by the natives thc Flat
Bow), throughout Its course into Kootenay ('Flat Bow') Lake. On April
24 ho passed the 'Torrent' (St. Mary's
River—tho 'Grand Quote' of Governor
Simpson); and on the 27th passed
'Fine Meadown' (Tobacco River), in
Montana. By May ('., he reached Koolenay Falls (between Llbby and Troy
on the G.N.R.) and where later In
tho year bis lieutenant, Finan McDonald erected 'Fiatliead House' Portaging the falls, he struck the well-defined Indian trail (from Jennings.
Mont., lo Bonner's Ferry. Idaho), and
at the latter place fell In and traded
with the 'Platheads." On the 14th he
reached Flat Bow (Kootenay Lake)
and from Kootenay Landing returned
to Bonn ors, where he took horse and
then by the Movie ('McDonalds' after
Finan of the name) River, up what
Is now the C.P.R. Crow line, reaching
the Kootenay near Fort Steele- This
Is"the Simpson route of 1841; and that
of the U. S. prospectors 18(13-4, which
running from Bonners Ferry, Idaho,
over Service Berry Hill to the Moyie
valley (Curzon on thc Crow line), past
Crunbrook to Fort Steele, went on
across the Kootenay to the 'diggings'
at Wild Horse. Wild H_.rso, Thompson called "Skirmish Biook." and the
Sheep, "Lussier," and the mountain
opposite his Kootenay House where
ho arrived on Juno 5, he called Mt.
Nelson (locally Mt. Hammond).
From a trip over tho Kockles by
Howse Pass he returned in October
31 to Columbia; und sent McDonald
south to establish 'Flathead House,
while with James McMillan (who
built Fort Langley, 1827) and Jaco
Finlay, lie traded and hunted and wintered at his beloved Kootenay Houso
A word or two about Finan McDonald und Jaco Finlay, Thompson's
trusties and scouts. Wherever McDonald's name appears 1S07 to 1826, Il|
Is Invariably as advance agent devel

wbo opened "Flathead" (1808), and
"Spokane" 1810-11 "Houses," held the
'Saleesb' ty Peud d'Orellle for Tliomp
son, and led lilm up-river to Bevel

Astoria trip. He intermarried with
the Kootenays (one of tho very few
whites allowed so to do), und his
blood ls suid to run in some prominent Mountain families. He last appears July 1886, asking permission to
cross UlO Rockies, the first tlmo In
nineteen years of wilderness llfo.
Jaco Finlay (Jacques Raphael), a
half-breed, established trade for
Thompson In West Montana, and Jocko Creek, Missoula County, still carries his memory.
James McMillan spent twenty-one
years in the Columbia country, and
contributed much to the geographical

Thompson handed down judgment In
j an appeal ease of Interest to sports-
I men and anglers especially, ln the
j district, Mr, O. J. Spreull appeared
i t'or the appellants and Kr. \V. A. Nts-
, bet for the respondents. The ease
was an appeal from u conviction
I made by Louis Perron, a Justice of
j tho Peace In and lot* tho County ot
| Kootenay, whereby the appellants,
' Oscar Stoneberg, John Moo und Thomas Gustafsou were convicted that tbey
did oh 'bt' -"th day of Oetober, 1021,*
at or near Clenlily, In the County of
Kootenay, unlawfully take more than
twenty-five trout in one day contrary
to Section 1 (e) of tho Fishery Regulations of llrltlsh Columbia.
"The facte nro," tbo Judge states lu
lila reasons for Judgment, "that tho
threo appellants wero seen starting
out to fish and later in the day wero
found by Constable Keif of the Itoyal
Canadian Monntod Police with a bag
or sack full of fish, whicli wero subsequently counted and found to bo
1..7 iu number, of whl h about 124
were found to be trout coming within
tho classes mentioned In the Section
of the Fishery Regulations, The accused did not deny that they lmd
caught the fish, and the number largely exceeded the a_.Brcf.ate which the
three of them could lawfully catch.
There Is no doubt but that the appellants caught more than the allotted
number of fish, and 1 would hold that
the onus was cast upon each Individual accused to show that he himself
did not catch more than the allotted
"Mr. Spreull made several objections tn the conviction, but the only
ono upon w'Wcti 1 feel called upon to
make a finding is that the information
charges that the three men took more
than tweiny-five trout in one day.
"It is clearly within the Regulations
for threo men to take more than
twenty-five trout; they can take seventy-five provided each man takes
twenty-five only. Not only tho information, therefore, but the conviction
is clearly wrong on its face. They
should have been charged that they
each took more than twenty-five trout
in one day. The question, therefore,
for me to consider is whether I can
amend the information and conviction
to bring them yithin the words of the-
After citing authorities in extenso
the Judge finds as follows:
"If, therefore, the omission to lay
out a 'single, distinct, positive nn definite charge' makes the proceedings
not an irregularity but a.nullity, I
cannot help hut arrive at the conclusion that where the charge as lntd Is
uo olfence nt all I cannot amend.
"While it is unnecessary for me to
do so, still as ocunsel for the res-
pondents lias requested me to suggest
any deficiencies in the Regulations,
I would point out one way in which,
to my mind, the Regulation is defective. The Regulation reads as follows: 'Section 1 (e). No one shall
take In one day by angling or trolling
or by both means more than twenty-
five Cut-throat, Rainbow or Dolly
Varden trout. Salmon trout or Rocky
Mountain whltefish, or of the different species than will in the aggregate
amount to more than twenty-five fish.'
.'It is manifestly impossible that the
Crown would bo able to prove that
the fish in tlie possession of an accused person were all taken in one
day or that they wore taken by angl-
Ing or trolling. Whero two or more
persons are found together, as in this
case, with an aggregate of more than
twenly-flve fish each it ls manifestly
impossible for the Crown to prove that
each man Is guilty. It may also be
ono or two. Whfle I might bo prepared to go to the extent of placing
the onus upon the accused under such
circumstances, I would suggest that
the mere fact of the possession of a
grealer number of fish than the law
allows to he caught should cast upon
the accused the onus of proving his
right to their possession. In other
words follow the procedure that is
followed in the (lame Act.
'"Por the reasons I have given I am
reluctantly compelled to quash the
conviction. Under the circumstances
however, thero will be no costa.H

Qti. MAN
Adapted by Arthur Zetlner
from Lloyd Osbarne'$ story in
thc Saturday Evtitiing  Post
A Maxwell Karger
(Editorial from the Fernie Free Press)
A few short weeks ago a Dominion
election was held and R. E. Beattl©
of Cranbrook was declared elected
to represent the District of East Kootenay In the House of Commons. Mr.
Beattie has resigned his seat. He evidently did not appreciate the honor
which the electors of tills riding conferred upon him. Tlie Hon. Dr. Kinp,
Minister of Public Works in the moribund Grit government at Victoria, has
cast longing eyes on this seat, and
in spite ot the protests from his
party friends, from one end of the
riding to tlie other, has forced Beat-
tie's resignation and intends to run
here as Minister of Public Works in
Ottawa- A greater piece of political
chlcnnery was never pulled off. Had
Mr. Beattie been offered a portfolio
we venture to say he would have had
the endorsntlon of all parties in East
Kootenay. Dr. King is anxious to
desert the sinking ship or state In Victoria and find a soft bed for himself.
Dr. King's record ns Minister of Public* Works at Victoria is not one which
would lead the elertcrate to believe
that lie could successfully handle the
largest spending department of the
government at Ottawa.
Our men in public life arc exactly
what we make them. We do not believe the electorate will endorse the
Iilgli-handed manner in which Dr.
King has tried to force himself upon
them, nor wfll they approve of tho
principle of barter and sale of their
franchise, nor will they endorse the
principle which his friends are advocating, nf-mely, purchasing tiie support of the electors of this district by
promising to spend the public money
in this district if he should be sent to
Ottawa ns Minister of Public Works.

As hosts the curlers of Cranbrook
are ideal. Nothing was left undone
that would contribute to the enjoyment and entertainment of their merry guests. Everywhere the spirit of
good followsblp prevailed, and the
absence of all formality was productive of an at-home sort of feeling
that went far towards making the
Curlers' Annual Hall ono of the most
brilliant, and at the same time, most
enjoyable affairs that the Cranbrook
people have ever beeu privileged to
The smoothness and ease that characterized the carrying out of tlie pro-
grain spoke eloquently of untiring
work on the part of tlie various committees. There was not a dull moment throughout the entire evening.
So must tbo refreshment committee
be complimented, not only for the excellence of the viands served, but
also i'or the ease and despatch with
which it filled the wants of Its host
of guests.
There was a full house, not less
than a hundred and fifty couples being in attendance. The music, given
by the Cranbrook Orchestra, was of
tho best, and the dance is characterized as being the best held here for a
long time.
All hall to Robbie Burns, Scotland ploughman poet! Alt hail to

The annual meeting of the district
hospital association was held at Windermere last week and was well attended- The reports uf the various
officers showed the institution to be
iu good financial position and to
have done remurkubly well in serving
the public in the uses for which it Is
Intended. The profit and loss account showed a net Increase for the
year ending December 31 of $116(1.65,
tbe total revenue reaching $6468.17.
The statement of assets and liabilities showed the net worth to be $1,251.-
23 which includes a value of $6,811.26
for the buildings. The report of the
directors showed an increase of fifty
per cent In hospital days and nearly
tlie same increase in maternity cases.
Mr. A. B. Fisher, who for several
years has proved a most efficient and
capable secretary-treasurer, asked to
be relieved of his duties on account
of pressure of Iiis own business Interests nnd this position Is now filled
by Mr, Wm. Weir.
The report of the LadieB Hospital
Aid, which is now under the able leadership of Miss E. M. Kittle, which
was presented, showed they had during the year presented to the institution either in cash or goods the sum
of $510.2:1.
Mr. A- G. Cuthbert was again elected president and most of the last
year's directors are again in charge
of the good work. A change in the
directorate was found necessary owing to some of the previous members
having removed from town and others
not finding time to contlnuo these duties.

"OVEIt  THE  llll.l.*** QBBAT
In theso days of carping criticism
of motion pictures and everything
pertaining thereto, it |B gratifying to
realize tbat there Is at least onu film
production in the field in which the
most zealous hunter for tilings to.
rltlclse cannot find the least  fault.
Blushes—there is not one in the
entire subject. 'Crime suggestions—
none, unless one who sees the picture
feels a strong impulse to do violence
to any man or woman caught lu the
act of abusing his or her aged mother.
This photoplay {s the William Fox
production "Over the Hill," a pictur-
ization of two of the most popular
poems In Will Carleton's "Farm Ballads." The film scenario was made
by Paul H. Sloane, and the picture
was directed by Harry Millarde.
In a dill tion to being tho reignig
screen success for many months in
New York city, "Over the Hill" is
noted as the most persistent breaker
of theatrical traditions tha ever located in Broadway. In the first place
the traditional Xew Fork screen success is a picture that enlists the
services of highly paid screen luminaries who work amid massive and
gorgeous settings in stories that
sometime Tail to appeal to best instincts. In the second place tradition
has held that a play could not, without financial damage, change its
theatre In the midst of a successful
run. Yet "Over the Hill" has occupied six different Broadway theatres
since its premiere a year ago.
'Over tho Hill" started on its v***.

much on the result of its deliberations, though ft was expected that an
