Growing Among Useful Organs,
They   Are  Like Weeds —
Retard Child's Growth
Adenoids growing among the tlse-
lul organs and passages ol the nose
and throat are like weeds in a well
kept garden. They choke, rob and
destroy. As soon as they appear they
should he uprooted.
"Thc adenoid is one of the trou-
hleti of childhood that parents do not
take seriously enough," said a Kan-
Has City surgeon who has clipped the
evil growth Irom hundreds of little
throats. "They regard it merely as
an annoyance, whereas it is a source
of the gravest danger to the mind ub
well as the body. Mouth breathing
nnd the consequent vacant stare ure
the least ot its evil results. It has u
constant tendency to supperate, and
the poisonous discharges tinds its way
into thc system ol the child, with the
result that its development is arrested and its years ol growth are years
of battle with an enemy as subtle as
it is constant in its evil effects.
"Some time, away back iu the days
of our tlshhood, probably," continued
the surgeon, "the adenoid played u
respectuble part in the anatomical
structure of the head. Hut it. became
obsolete along with the gills and tins
of those days, and the surgeons are
doing all they can to blot out the
"Like the vermiform appendix, the
tonsils .md some other obsolete organs, the adenoids ur" disease traps.
Having little else to do, they promptly get into mischief,
"Growing ever softer and more
Bponge like as the generations pass,
they become more susceptible to »in-
tiammatory causes. A bit ol dust, a
cold in tbe head, a wandering germ,
and suddenly the adenoid declares it-
sell by enlarging from the size ot a
hazelnut  to thut of a small egg.
"Admirably situated to carry out
their mischievous tendencies, the adenoids li< far back in the mouth close
to the real opening ol the nasal cavities and a very short distance Irom
the twe. Eustachian tubes that lead
to the ".its. Because of their strategic position tbey allect the nose and
the sense of smell, the ears and the
sense of healing, and the mouth and
the sense .if taste. The supperation
that is sure to accompany their inflamed condition keeps the sensitive
stomach of the child supplied with a
tnihtle and devastating poison. It is
this slow poisoning that wastes the
tissues, nauseates the child and keeps
him Irom growing.
"Most frequently adenoid Inflammation has its beginning in young children with au attack of the snuffles.
A neglected cold in the head or
catarrh will often start an enlargement of the little lobute in a baby
not more than seven months old.
Like the larger tonsils below them,
these smaller ones inflame on the
slightest provocation, but their capacity lor harm is lar greater than
that of their neighbors, because the
swelling of the adenoid closes the
nostrils. They interfere constantly
with the breathing aud the digestion
"At first the effect is merely physical, but finally the child's power of
attention and even its intelligence are
seriously impaired. Sometimes the
tirst that is known ol the cause ot the
open mouth and vacant expression is
when the child goes to school and the
teacher, on the alert for this trouble,
may  recognize tlie adenoid lace.
"The adenoid is also the chief
cause of earache in children. The
6ecretion drains into the ear tubes
nnd sets up a sympathetic inflammation just where it will hurt the most.
As soon as thc enlargement of the adenoid becomes chronic and its effect
upon the ear tubes is constant deafness is iikely to ensue. Gatherings
in the ears' are nearly always the result of an Inflamed adenoid.
"It Is true that two-thirds of what
we call taste is really smell. Stop up
the nostrils, and you cannot tell the
difference between apples and onions,
as you may know if ever you have
had a had cold.
"Parents, hurt in their pride tirst
of all, deplore the child's open mouth
They command it to breathe through
Its nose and the child tries to obey.
Hut it might as well try to breathe
through its ears. Sometimes they
carefully tie up its mouth as it sleeps
and it nearly chokes in its efforts to
obtain a little air. Hy morning It is
pale and fatigued from lack of air
nnd  the musoular effort ol the night.
"If any affliction can lie worse than
ndonoids, it is nonunderstandlng parents who insist that the child close
its mouth when to do so Is an Impossibility."
Before    the    Kansas Oity    surgeon
proceeded to describe the operation
for adenoids ne displayed numerous
photographs of Kansus City children
taken before the operation and a few
months after it in every instance
showing a surprising development of
thc body and growth of Intelligence
in the face. The narrow shoulders,
pigeon breasts und slender limbs had
changed completely, aud in a few
months the child had grown as much
as he would in two ordinary years.
Nature arrested is like a train that is
late—as soon as the arresting cause
is removed she goes ahead at double-
quick time.
The vitality of the mucous membrane and tissues ot the nose will
carry ofl the worst ol colds und destroy invading germs, but the useless
tonsils that are grouped around the
aud half-dead tissues of the various
back ol the nose and upper part of
the throat have no such power of
recuperation. They    are       danger
sponges, disease traps and the sooner
they are removed the better in mo-st
To be exact, there nre the tirBt,
second and third tonsils, the puir on
cither side the palate, the adenoid
tonsil behind the nostril, and the
tonsil that is situated just above the
pharynx. This last occasions much
trouble to singers and others who use
the voice much.
While an ounce ot prevention is
tti 11 worth a pound of cure, there are
cases of adenoids that will not subside under the most hygienic care of
the throat and nose. Fortunately, the
pound of cure is under weight in the
case of adenoids. If they are taken
early enough they can be removed by
a trilling and almost painless operation, although lacking in the element
ol dunger. They are taken ofl as
easily as fungus is removed from a
tree. The soft, pulpy mass is so
slightly connected with the healthy
tissues below that they can be scraped off with a small surgical spoon or
curette. The horror of the knife need
never be    associated    with    adenoids
' unless the child has passed beyond
seven years of age and the tissue has
grown more unyielding.
I The Kansas City surgeon insists
that it is improper to refer to the removal of the adenoid an an "operation," since it is no more risky and
much less painful than the extraction of a tooth.
i It is thc result of the operation that
is of paramount importance. The
habit of nose breathing Is quickly
formed, the open mouth   closes,    the
j vacant look  disappears and the child
I begins to till out.
"Sometimes they grow from three
to five inches in a single year following the removal of the adenoids, and
jump a grade or two in school. The
time will come when no child will
be permitted to suffer Irom adenoids
after his seventh year," concluded
the doctor, "and then we shall have
little deafness, few cases of stunted
growth, and very little backwardness
in children."
The observant person cannot fail
to notice on the street cars or iu any
crowd where there are very young
children, tbe frequency of the uden -
oid lace. The pinched nnd unused
nostrils, open mouth and vacant expression proclaim the presence of the
spongy growth, to which the pasty
complexion and inertia of the child
further testifies.
The appearance is less frequent in
older children, as the adenoids have
a tendency to disappear as the child
matures. By this time, however, the
mischief has been done, and he never
regains the time lost in early childhood, when his body should have been
growing most rapidly, his mind developing and his senses growing more
and more alert. The absence of the
evidence of adenoids in older chil -
dren is also due to the vigilance of
parents who hnve had the thrilling
operation performed, and thereby removed the handicap under which it
has entered the race.

Fossils  Have Been  Found of

Secrets of the Desert
Horses, some no larger than shepherd dogs, and others so old in history that until this year it had not
been believed they had existed on the
Western continent, once cavorted and
(risked on the Mojave DeBert, and,
alter cavorting and frisking, left

In the lace ol rocks all the way
from Prance to China have been lound
fossilized remains of the Iuiiioub Hip-
purion horse ol the I'liocene Age, but
until the Mojave 'told Its story to
Prof. John Campbell Merrium, of the
University of California, this country
was thought to have been one of the
newer lands where pliocene animals
never roamed. The discovery gave
proof to the theory that the continents were connected, and brought a
tinge of authenticity to the cherished
legend of the "vanished bridge of
land." The Mojave went further.

in the Mojave, the Thousand Creeks,
Virgin valley and Mina tosBil fields

horse of the Middle or late Miocene
Age, the great-granddaddy ot the
Hipparion, and proof positive that so
far as present research can show,
horses inhabited what is now the
Pacific coast before tbey trotted over
the slopes of the "older" continent.
The story ol the horse, aB written
in fossils today, means that they
originated not many miles Irom San
Francisco, and have roamed over a
world. This continent is no longer
to be despised as the "new" one because it. was discovered by men at a
later date, but that right here was
founded the time-honored genus Equ-
us. It is a romantic story unfolded
after many failures and vicissitudes.
falBC grounds for hopes and unexpected triumphs, and iu all, a Btory of
Hard work.
The Mojave Desert, since Prof.
Merriam's visit, has taken on an international significance as a virgin
field for research. No one knows
what secrets lie buried in thc sands,
and, us the results so lar have been
so promising, it is certain that natives of thc oil field regions will soon
grow accustomed to "high brow" professors "digging for bones."
The man who explores the Mojave
goes back to the time when horses
had three toes and must go with a
knowledge of the shifting Bands of
ages. Centuries ago when a Hipparion horse sought a sheltered place
in which to die he performed a favor
to science, for in those semi-sheltered
spots the preserving Band gently
s'lted in. In years the accumulated
sands and water covered the bones
with a deep conglomerate, which, lor
storage purposes, has had no equal,
aud which preserves to this day the
record ol ages. It is lor this reason
that deserts ami mountainous regions
arc the hunting grounds for the
lu addition to the boises of the
Miocene, I'liocene and Pleistocene
uges, Prof, Merriani found in the
Mojave the record Of thc twisted
horn antelope, likewise an evidence
of tin connection of the Old World,

eland and kudu of Africa were i,ut

It is announced by Ambassador

taki the place of the existing arbitration treaty when the latter ex-

plates the establishment of a commission to which any dispute between tbe two powers shall be sub-

The following article on tobacco
growing in British Columbia appears
in the current issue ol the Canadian
"Few people seem to realize that
tobacco growing in British Columbia
is at all possible, and many arc surprised beyond measure when they are
told that it is rapidly assuming the
proportions of a large factor In the
industrial growth of the province.
"When Canadian tobacco is men -
tioned one Invarlablj thinks of tho
crude French-Canadian twist produced in the provinces ol Quebec and Ontario, and the great majority of people are unwilling to believe that a
really good quality of tobacco can be
grown any place In Canada, much less
in British Columbia. But the tact remains that the tobacco that is being
grown In Kelowna is Becond in quality only to the Imported Havana and
Sumatra leaves. While it may take
years of blending and experimentation, the time is bound to come when
the British Columbia product will he
on pur ,vith the best of the foreign-
grown leaf. Even at the present time
the cigars made Irom the Okanagan
tobacco have a large sale, and many
of thc older brands are looking upon
the new-comer as a competitor to be
reckoned with.
"From tbe success that met an experiment made by thc Okanagan
growers two years ago, it has been
proved that the Okanagan valley is
one of the best tobacco countries on
the continent. For many years it hus
been the ambition ol the tobacco
growers of the North American continent to cultivate a Sumatra leal
.•qiial in quality to the island product. In I'.112 hall an acre ot Sum -
atra seed was sown in the Okanagan
as an experiment. That experiment
met with such unqualified success
that twenty acres were under cultivation   ill   1013,   audit   is   expected   that
■ great m my more will be under cul-
,nation   this   yeai."

New    Schedule    of    British
Columbia Interior League
Is Arranged
Owing to Kelowna dropping out ot
the league, a meeting of the executive
of the British Columbia Interior league was held at Vernon on July 15.
A new schedule whb diawn up between the three remaining teams,
Vernon, Kamloops nnd Revelstoke.
The exact (Into <*n which the games
will he played has not as yet heen
decided but tbe fans of Revelstoke
will see five home games played be-*
ture the end of the season. The date
for thc ending of the league was
changed from September 7 to August 13. which means that Revelstoke
will average more than a home game

Close Game   in Which   New
Team Makes Good Run
For Victory
The Beavers played the C.P.R. on
Wednesday evening lust. The game
resulted In a win for the Beavers 13
to 1. Both teams had a weak aggregation. An accident occurred, when J.
Purvis running for third base, ran into C. Corson, which resulted in Corson having his collar bone broken
and the ligaments of Purvis' knee
were severely strained. Both are recovering.
Kamloops Suffers Defeat
at Hands of Vernon
Kamloops sustained their third de-
Ieat in thc Interior league on Wednesday at Vernon by a score of :i to 5,
The attendance was somewhat meagre
owing, no doubt, to the inclement
weather, and the few who showed
BUfflcient courage to turn up were recompensed by a tine exhibition of
baseball. Mclvor was in excellent
trim for Vernon and Peters, if not so
brilliant, nevertheless played a sound
game. Where Vernon excelled was in
the hitting department, and no doubt
Kamloops is missing Baird, The Holding of the Kamloops players was far
superior to that of Vernon, as evidenced by the fact that only one error was recorded against them.
After the game a meeting of the
clubs interest eii in the league was
held  at   Vernon.
Schedule Drawn up For

7—CPU.  vs. Fire Hall.
10—Baby  Giants vs. Beavers.
Another interesting and fast game
of ball was played on the Y diamond
last evening, the Baby Giants against
the Fire Hall, the Fire Hall winning
liy 7 to ti.
The Baby Giants went to bat tirst
but owing to being a new line up and
somewhat timid playing against thc
winners .if the last league they did
not make a run the first innings; but
as tin' game proceeded they became
more encouraged and worked for victory against  all odds.
The tire hall team made three runs
in their drat innings, which practically saved them from defeat. Tlie game
was interesting throughout, both
teams doing grand field work.
One- defect in the Baby Giants is
the way in which some of the boys
leceive the decisions of the umpire.
The spectators are hopeful, however,
that Manager Daniels will have this
Un Monday next the Baby Giants
play the C.P.R.

by Mr. Hinds being the winners. The

" As minister ot mines, nothing

no truth in what has often been alleged—that the prospector is becoming extinct.
