General Pershing's arrival in England.  :  Commander-in-chief of the United States Expeditionary Forces,  Major-General John J. Pershing, is seen inspecting the guard  of honor, accompanied by. General Pitcairn Campbell.  Mr. John Gibson, who has  spent, three weeks here visiting  his father, Rev. W. H. Gibson,  took his departure for^Hartley  Bay, where he will be stationed  as a missionary among the Indians at that place.  The very favorable weather  during the last two weeks has  enabled the ranchers for the  most part to get their first crop  of hay under cover.  Fishing locally has not been  very satisfactory during' the  week. The fishermen seem to  think that the sockeye salmon  will continue for another two  weeks, although quite a few dog  salmon and humpback have put  in an appearance.  The interior Indians that took  their departure on the Camo&un  three weeks ago for Vancouver,  got so tired of waiting in town  for the return of the steamer  that they obtained passage on  the Venture to Namu, chartered  a boat from there and are now  back here again.

France, as I have seen it, is a  very pretty place, the country as  a whole is charming with the  "socalled" forests, though nothing to compare with our timber.

"Give way for His' Majesty's  mail" may mean something, but  evidently giving pride of place  to the mail has no meaning to  post office officials and mail carriers; their rendering of the well  r known axiom is, "perhaps some-  -day in the far distant future.','  That Beila Coola has not had  any mail for three weeks may  seem to the uninformed on mail  service in this community rather  out of the ordinary, But to the  people who have dealings with  the company carrying the mails  and the superintendent of railway mail service it is .nothing  out of the way. It is a case of*  the people be dammed, just let  them wait! This is about all  what the heads of the company  carrying His Majesty's Mail and  the mail servicedepartment think  in regard to public service.  The strike of seamen on the  coast steamers has not entirely  cut of! service with the north as  there is an occasional boat up to  Prince Rupert.    It would have  been an easy matter to have put  the Bella  Coola and  Kimsquit  mails off at Namu and then have  forwarded them by a launch to  their destination.   But this simple way of routing the mail to  outlying points is evidently beyond the grasp of the Big Tyhee  stationed  at Vancouver of our  great mail service department.  Although  we are only a small  community we are entitled to our  mail.      The government claim  that the small  settlements are  the backbone of the country, but  when it comes to doing the said  settlements a service they can  go to���������well, because the vote is  smalt.   The public servant who  shows so little initiative in time  of trouble as the present official  who has charge of routing the  mails, the sooner he is let out the  better.    Perhaps it is the intention of the postoffice department  to close the post office here and  go out of business.  o;    o     6     o ,. .o '  Preserve Our Birds.  At a time like this there are  many things worth bringing to  the attention of our people, as a  community, though it may; be  worth while for the province to  make this a matter for the state  as it has been, done in different  lands of the world, also in different states of the American  union and in some of the provinces of Canada, and that, is the  real sport, and perhaps a dog  fancier, or maybe a cat fancier  and owner of the canines in numbers. Then lie left the valley,  but did not tak'e his cat or dog  with him, these were left to look  after themselves. Hungermakes  fierce, and the first thingto prey  on were our beautiful birds. The  result of this was that the birds  of many hues were molested to  such an extent that destroyed  nests were as common as, the  stones on the trails. Bella Coola  has it lovers of birds and many  of these preyers on our bird life  were killed by them. The result  is that today in this community  and in the town of Bella Coola  inthe early morning the air is  filled with song from the birds  that have been allowed to remain in peace about our1 homes.  The provincial government is  spending thousands of dollars  every year of taxpayers money  on game protection, but to the  close observer must be named  "game destruction," and the  people of this beautiful valley  must not look to our government  for any aid in protecting our  birds, if we are to judge the  future by the'past. Home is the  training school for all citizens  and to the parents and others in  this community we say, "tell the  boys and girls to not destroy a  bird's nest." The present is  the time to educate the children  to this. , Do not wait until the  birds are all gone, perhaps for  ever. There are many communities today where bird voices  are never heard. If every home  was a faithful guardian of our  bird life each and every community would be all the brighter  for it. It would not hurt our  education department at Victoria  to instruct the public school  teachers of this province to place  this all important matter before  the children under their charge.'  Charity begins at home, so in  this let the head of the ho\ise  start the preservation of our  =,ong birds now and it may be  safely said that the future will  POWDER  CONTAINS NO ALUM j  MADE IN CANADA  take care of itself.  o    o    o    o    o  Roses Bloom in Heaven.  Bella Coola is the home of roses  both wild and cultivated ones  thrive and grow in great numbers. It was a pleasure to many  of. the readers of the Courier to  have an opportunity to read the  article by Mr. S? Le C. Grant on  the rose and its cultivation, and  it may well be said that in a community like Bella Coola more interest should be shown in the  t-ultivation of flowers, particularly at this time. It does not  altogether require a person of  science and learning to see that  the world of today is passing  through something not quite understood or rather a transformation period, a time not quite clear  to the mind or perhaps, a little  beyond the reach of the present  day human thought. ���������  "See the lillies, how they  grow!" this saying is as old as  the soil itself, but of roses with  German names this may not be  all true at the present time. A  family'in this' community have'  quite a number of rose bushes  that are now in bud. Amc-ng  these is one Frau Karl Druschki  that to all appearances was the  strongest and most advanced in  the spring is now barren, although it is in the -same soil and  received the same care as the  others it is without a bud.  Whether this war is responsible for this or not is a matter  for conjecture. Some time ago,  one of the foremost rosarians on  the Pacific Coast, Mr. Frank M.  Latcham of Tacoma, reported  that all roses with German names  were stunted. He furnishes a  list of roses with German names  which seem not to thrive this  season on enemy soil.   These are  dame Hoste. Von Bismark, Wes-  selhoff, Heinrich Munoch, Frus-  tin von Plcss and Frau Karl  Druschki. The writer also observes, "Moles seem to be acting  as submarines in attacking the  roots of German rosetrees and  flying ants are attacking the  plants in a similar fashion to airships while other roses, particular La France and others of the  Allies, are budding rapidly.",  O     O     o     o     o  May Be Useful.  After every harvest it has  been customary to regard surplus  straw as of little value, but if the  reports of the use that straw can  be put to are justified then it will  become a valuable asset to our  farmers. It has long been recognized that straw has valuable  combustible properties. Some  experiments have been made,  more or less crudc'until recently,  to extract from the straw in the  form of gas the power that had  gone into it in the form of sunlight. It is claimed that a retort  has been designed ' by a Saskatchewan engineer that is practical; and at less price than it  would cost to install, say, H.H's  hot-water heating system into  your house, giving you heat,  light and power the whole year  round from the straw which or-  txmmsKumiiwi  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

The method is simple. The  retort is charged with straw and  it is then subject to heat. At a  certain temperature.,the gas is  released from the straw; it passes into a receptacle called a  scrubber, which contains water  and iron filings. There the gas  is cleansed and- it then passes  into a gasometer.  Theworkless day is not yet,'  but is on the way.

In a short time many of  the people about the plant were  on the spot, and in less than 30  minutes afterwards the body  was brought to the surface; the  cannery employees working for  nearly two hours to resuscitate  life, but of no avail.  When the body was recovered  it was noticed that the forehead  was bruised- and it is surmised  that in falling either from.the  boat or a log-float close by the  unfortunate man had struck some  object, and probably was stunned. This being borne out by  the fact that the body did not  reappear on the surface, but was  only   found after  considerable  dragging of the bottom of the  bay.  Immediately after finding "the  body notice was sent to the authorities here, and on Sunday  morning a casket was made at  the cannery and the remains  turned over to the provincial  police, the tug Colonia bringing  in the body which was forwarded  to Hagensborg,where the family  .reside. The sad accident is a  matter of much regret to the  cannery people as well as to .the.  whole community.  ~ The funeral of Casper Knud-  sen, who came to his death by  drowning, took place at the  Augsburg Cemetery on Tuesday  afternoon last. ( At 12 o'clock a  large number of friends and  neighbors of the deceased gathered at the   family residence,  where devotional services were  held, also at the grave side.  Rev. H. Sageng officiated.  The deceased, who came to  Bella Coola four years ago, was  born at Jaegervand, near Trom-  soe, Norway, 52 years ago and is  survived by a widow and four  sons, all residing here.

Pershing, is seen inspecting the guard  of honor, accompanied by General Pitcairn Campbell.  Mr. John Gibson, who has  spent three weeks here visiting  his father, Rev. W. H. Gibson,  took his departure for Hartley  Bay, where he will be stationed  as a missionary among the Indians at that place.  The very favorable weather  during the last two weeks has  enabled the ranchers for the  most part to get their first crop  of hay under cover.  Fishing locally has not been  very satisfactory during the  week. The fishermen seem to  think that the sockeye salmon  will continue for another two  weeks, although quite a few dog  salmon and humpback have put  in an appearance.  The interior Indians that took  their departure on the Camosun  three weeks ago for Vancouver,  got so tired of waiting in town  for the return of the steamer  that they obtained passage on  the Venture to Namu, chartered  a boat from there and are now  back here again. No flies on Loo  when it comes to travelling,  either by sea or land.  Wednesday evening 16 sacks  of mail arrived by launch from  Namu as a first instalment.

A Sad Drowning Fatality  Local Citizen Meets Untimely Death  A sad fatality which evoked  deep sympathy, occurred at the  Tallio Fisheries cannery at Numamis. Shortly after 9 o'clock  on Saturday night, Casper Knud-  sen, a fisherman, met his death  by drowning, but how the accident occurred will remain a mystery. Another fisherman, O. ln-  drevick, was the last person that  saw Mr. Knudsen alive which  was in close proximity to where  all the fishing boats are tied up.

"Give way for His Majesty's  mail" may mean something, but  ' evidently giving pride of place  to the,, mail has no meaning to"  post office officials and mail carriers; their rendering of the well  known axiom is, "perhaps someday in the" far distant future."  That Bella Coola has not had  any mail for three weeks may  seem to the uninformed on mail  service in this community rather  out.of the ordinary,- But to the  people who have dealings with  the company, carrying the mails  and the superintendent of railway mail service it is nothing  out of the way. It is a case of  the people be dammed, just let  "them, wait!  "'This' is" about all  what the heads, of the company  , carrying His Majesty's Mail and I ever.  the mail servicedepartmentthink  in regard to public service.  The strike of seamen on the  coast steamers has  not entirely  cut off service with the north as  there is an occasional boat up to  Prince Rupert.     It would have  been an easy matter to have put  the  Bella Coola and  Kimsquit  mails off at Namu and then have  forwarded them by a launch to  their destination.   But this simple way of routing the mail to  outlying points is evidently beyond the grasp of the Big Tyhee  stationed  at Vancouver of our  great mail service department.  Although  we are only a small  Community we are entitled to our  mail.      The_ government claim  that the small  settlements are  the backbone of the country, but  when it comes to doing the .said  settlements a.service they can  go to���������well, because the vote is  small.   The public servant who  shows so little initiative in time  of trouble as the present official  who has charge of routing the  mails, the sooner he is let out the  better.    Perhaps it is the intention of the postoffice department  to close the postoffice here and  go out of business.  O     o     o     o     o  Preserve Our Birds.  At a time like this there are  many things worth bringing to  the attention of our people as a  community,  though  it  may be  worth while for the province to  make this a matter for the state  as it has been done in different  lands of the world, also in different states of the American  union and in some of the provinces of Canada, and that is the!  fancier, or maybe a cat fancier  and owner of the canines in numbers. Then he left the valley,  but did not take his cat or dog  with him, these,were left to look  after themselves. Hungermakes  fierce, and the first thing to prey  on were bur beautiful birds. The  result of this was that the birds  of many hues were molested to  such an extent that destroyed  nests were as common as the  stones on the trails. Bella Coola  has it lovers of birds and many  of these preyers on our bird life  were killed by them. The result  is that today in this community  and in the town of Bella Coola  in the early morning the air is  filled with song from the birds  that have, been allowed to remain in peace "about our homes.  The4 provincial government is  spending thousands of dollars  every year of taxpayers money  on game protection, but to the  close observer .must be named  "game destruction," and the  people of this beautiful valley  must not look: to our government  for any aid in protecting our  birds, if we are to judge the  future by the past. Home is the  training school for all citizens  and to the parents and others in  this community we say, "tell the  boys and girls to not- destroy a  bird's nest." The present is  the time to.-educate- thechi'ldren  to this. - Do not wait until the  birds are all .gone, perhaps for  There are many commu-  MAGIC  BAKING  POWDER  CONTAINS NO ALUM  MADE IN CANADA  take care of itself.  o     o     o     o     o  Roses Bloom in Heaven.  BellaCoola is the home of roses  both wild and  cultivated ones  thrive and grow in great numbers.    It was a pleasure to many  of the readers of the Courier to  have an opportunity to read the  article,by Mr. S; Le C. Grant on  the rose and its cultivation, and  it may well be said that in a community like Bella Coola more interest should be shown  in the  cultivation, of flowers,  particularly at this time.    It does not  altogether require a person of  science and learning to see that  the world  of today is  passing  through something not quite understood or rather a transformation period, a time not quite clear  .to the mind or perhaps a little  beyond the reach of the present  day human thought.  .   "See   the ��������� lillies,   how  they  grow!" this saying is as old as  the soil itself, but of roses with  German names this may not be  all true at the present time.    A  family in this community have  quite-a number of rose bushes  that are now   in  bud.    Among  these is one Frau Karl Druschki  that to all appearances was the  strongest and most advanced in  nities today where bird  voices J the spring is now  barren,   al-  are never heard. If every home  was a faithful guardian of our  bird life each and every community would be all the brighter  for it. It would not hurt our  education department at Victoria  to instruct the public school  teachers of this province to place  this all important matter before  the children under their charge."  Charity begins at home, so in  this let the head of the ho^se  start the preservation of our  song birds now and it may be  .afely said that the future will  though it is in the same soil and  received the same care as the  others it is without a bud. .  Whether this war is responsible for this or not is a matter  for conjecture. Some time ago,  one of the foremost rosarians on  the Pacific Coast, Mr. Frank M.  Latcham of Tacoma, reported  that all roses with German names  were stunted. He furnishes a  list of roses with German names  which seem not tQ thrive this  season on enemy soil. These are  Kaserine Augusta Victoria,' Ma-  idame Hoste, Von Bismark, Wes-  Iselhoff, Heinrich Munoch, Frus-  ! tin  von  Pless   and   Frau   Karl  Druschki.    The  writer also ob-  > serves, "Moles seem to be acting  jas submarines in attacking the  'roots of German rosetrees and  '.flying ants   are   attacking   the  j plants in a similar fashion to airships while other roses, particular La France and others of the  Allies, are budding rapidly."  o     o     o      o     o    ��������� '���������     ,..,.-"  May Be Useful.  After   every   harvest  it has  been customary to regard surplus  straw as of little value/ but if the  reports of the use that straw can  be put to are justified then it will  become a valuable asset to 'our  farmers.    It has long been recognized that straw has valuable  combustible properties.

IXTHAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of   the necessaries  of life?  Bella Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  View of a ranch in Bella Coola Valley.  HTHE REASONS for this   enviable  condi-  ���������*���������   tion of affairs   are   obvious  to  anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  OELLA COOLA and the surrounding  country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  i [  ��������� JiC  '���������'I  ���������__.___.���������_ rjniijri i _iii-t_-  I Harry HansonThP0l_^_.?,������ 3  P.
