On Friday evening, September 23rd,
the Greenwood Troop of the U. 1*.
Boys' Scouts gave a Soiree and Dance
at the Greenwood Auditorium, which
was attended and enjoyed by over 400
of the citizens of the town.
Sharp, at 6:30, the troop assembled
at the Scouts' barracks, on Church
street, and were inspected by the visitors, Martin Burrell,-M. P., of Ottawa,
aud John K. Jackson, M. P. P-, oT Vic
toria, accompanied by several prominent citizens. The troop, under tbe
leadership of their popular Scoutmaster, then marched to the Windsor hotel,
where the boys did ample justice to the
capital repast prepared by the hotel
At 8 o'clock the Auditorium began to
fill, and at 8:30 there was standing
room only, evidence of their good will,
and appreciation of their fellow towns

master and his troop of well-behaved
On the arrival of the boys, who
formed into line at the back of the big
hall, Mrs. Sidney Oliver opened the
evening's program with the "Imperial

|Audience as follows:
Ladies aad Gentlemen—In January,
1907, almost four years ago, Mr. Hargreaves first organized the Boys' Brigade of Greenwood. Some 33 boys were
enrolled and the basement of the English church was made their headquarters As far as possible attention was
given to the boys' physical development, which, as we all know, is one cf
the best means for the welfare of the
youth as weir as the grown up.
In the summer months most of their
time was devoted to outdoor work. In
the winter months they were taught
useful things, such as first aid to the
injured, gymnastics boxing, etc. This
winter it is the intention of Mr. Hargreaves to take up telegraphy with the
In 1908 a Bugle band was formed,
consisting of some 22 boys, and on
several occasions, such as the 24th of
May, the boys led the procession, and
proved an efficient and valuable asset
to the city. Unfortunately, owing to
several families leaving Greenwood
that year, the boys' ranks were thinned
and the Bugle band had to be disbanded. However, a great many boys still
remained, and through the generosity
of our Greenwood citizens, who are
interested in the movement, the boys
were outfitted with uniforms.
The Boy Scouts' regular meetings
are held every Wednesday evening at
their barracks, on Church street, and I
am sure that if you will only take the
time and trouble to visit them, and
visitors, I may add, are made very
welcome, you will see with pleasure,
as I have done, just what the Scouts
do and learn, under the able tutleage
of Scoutmaster Hargreaves,
That the Greenwood Troop of Boy
Scouts is financially in excellent shape
I am sure you will agree, for they have
at the present moment some $200 to
their credit in the Bank of Commerce.
(Applause.) You must also remember,
ladies and gentlemen, that this boys'
organization is practically run by
themselves, they having their own
committee, chairman and secretary, of
course under the supervision of Scoutmaster Hargreaves, and this iu itself
has its useful side, for the boys are
learning to be self-reliant and business-like.
I believe that what, you see here this
evening will convince you that the
boys arc being taught useful lessons
which will be of value to them in later
life, and I hope some of you will find
time to encourage the boys and visit
them at their headquarters.
Before sitting down, I would like to
say a few words of appreciation o' Mr.
Hargreaves. I am sure there is no one
I know of who has so devoted his time
and energies to the welfare and real
interests of the boys of Greenwood. It
is not only on Wednesday nighti, but
every night, in all his spare time after
his days' work, and he is, as we all
know, a most busy man, and he devotes
himself to the furtherance of this Boy
Scout movement, heart and soul. That
the boy j really appreciate him and his
disinterested services for them, you
will shortly see for yourself. I cannot
find words to express all I feel, and the
esteem in' ■which Mr. Hargreaves is
held by myself and those who fully
understand his good-work. "lam content to leave the program, which follows, in your hands, and let you see
for yourself what has been done for
the boys of Greenwood.    (Applause )
Following Mr. McLainc's introductory remarks, the curtain went up and
discovered two pioneer scouts on the

who, having located a good site for
camp, signalled the troop, which soon
appeared, and changed a bare stage in

The next item was a song, " Tenting
Tonight," by Mr. I>. H. MfCiirrach,
accompanied by the Buy Sa.uts Mr.
McCurrach's clear tenor voice and the
boys' voices bU-ndul charmingly together, and was in every way a most
musical treat.
A spirited boxing exhibition by
Scouts W. Metlill and C. McArthur,
three rounds of good .sparring, and
capital defence, was much appreciated
by the assemblage, exhibiting consid -
erable pluck, science and good nature.
Semaphore signalling and rope tying
by the Scouts fo'lowed. Chairman
McLaine handed a written message to
the signalling corps on the stage, who
signalled it to the Scouts at the back of
the hall, who transcribed it and read,
"The Boy Scouts of Greenwood extend
a hearty welcome to all here."
The rope tying was a typical evidence of the practical knowledge which
is a part of the boys' training.
Then followed a charming recitation,
"Canadian Born," by Miss Alice McMynn, which called for much applause
and ^eUcited^a_naqst_yivaciou« encore.

Striking camp by the Scouts was the
last item on the program, and tents,
fires, blankets and all the paraphernalia of camp disappeared in a minute,
the troop formed and marched to the
center of the hall, where medals were
presented by the Rev. F. M. Hilton to
the boys who have best tried to uphold
and further the interests of the local
troop for the period March-August,
1910, who were named by Mr."Hargreaves, as follows:
Ladies and Gentlemen—Last February it was decided that I should give a
gold medal to the boy whom I thought
had done the best to uphold and further
the interest of the local troop. What
is meant by this is attendance at Scout
meetings and church parades, most
marks for the different subjects that
have been taught, general behavior,
not only on Scout meeting nights, but
in their every day life. It might be
mentioned here that no boy is allowed
to smoke, or use bad language. On
mentioning the matter to Mr, Fred.
McLaine, he said the idea was a good
one, but he thought it would create
more interest among the boys if some
non-resident would give the medal.
This he not only arranged, but was the
means of another two being added,
making a first, second and third. The
first, a gold one, by Mr. Martin Burrell; the second, a silver one, by Mr.
John R. Jackson (here I might add that
Mr. Jackson wanted to give a gold
medal also ) To make up the three Mr.
Fred. McLaine gave a bronze one.
To .all these gentlemen I am very
much indebted, as they have been the
means of a very interesting competi
tion, as everyone^ here has had the opportunity of judging. The competition closed on August 31st, and the
following are the winners, with the
number of marks received by each:
Scout W. Smith  92
Corp. Bugler S. Hart  80
Bugler W. Fair  74
I might also mention that latterly
the competition was very keen, and
another Scout has run very close-
Scout G. Craig. I am pleased to announce that a bronze medal will also
be given to George Craig.
In presenting the medals the Rev.
Mr. Hilton, rector of St. Jude's church.
Greenwood, said.
Before presenting these medals, I
would like to say a few words to you
this evening. First, I wish to con-
gratuate Mr. Hargreaves and these
boys on the very excellent performance
they have given us. I have learned
many things tonight. In my life in
England I have seen a great deal of
work done by boys, but I have never
seen anything done better. (Applause.)
They are No. 1, you know, and I think
they should be called "A" No. 1. I
shall always think of them as such.
Mr. Hargreaves is indeed very much to
be congratulated on the work he has
done, and we as Greenwood people are
to be congratulated on having such a
very efficient and fine looking troop of
the world-wide organization known as
the Boy Scouts.
The boys are receiving an excellent
training, learning to have a respect
for themselves, each other, and for
other   people,   which   is a very   good
always rising to the occasion and making the most of all opportunities offered him for advancing the interests of
his province. Next to the I louse of
Commons itself there is possibly no
public (gathering in Canada where matters of high polity are given to the
country with the same weight as in
the questions of public import discussed at the annual banquet of that
organization. At their banquets in
the east they have been addressed by-
premiers of the Dominion, and on
more than one occasion by the representative of the Crown in Canada.
It was, therefore, an occasion when
much was expected of British Columbia's premier, and it was a gratifying as well as fortunate moment for
us all when the people of this province were given yet another opportunity of seeing how splendidly the
man of their choice discharged the
duty in their behalf of representing
the province in the fitting manner
which he did. Even British Columbians, who thought they knew Premier McBride, were not a little surprised with the effort, showing as it
did, the deep knowledge he possessed
of the province with its resources and
possibilities, and better still, was the
opportunity he gave them of realizing
that his optimism for British Columbia's future was in nowise provincial
or sectional in its character, but sounded the higher note of true Canadian-
ism. He seemed to realize that he
was not only representing his province and showing what part it was
able to contribute to the sum of Canada's greatness, but that he was also
in a sense acting as host to distinguished visitors from the eastern provinces,
and that he succeeded in discharging
that duty with consummate skill was
plainly shown by the enthusiasm with
which they received his address and
reciprocated his high aims for a united,
prosperous Canada, true to her alieg-
ance to the  British  crown.—Hedley
Various countries, or rather eminent people in various countries, had
their ideas as to what Japan should or
should not do in Korea, She proceeded to do what she suv fit. Instead of
n.-.|K-c-t'm» the independence of Korea
and tiro Koreans as they thought she
should, she proceeded to annex that
country. She has even wiped out the
very name. There is no Korea now;
it is Clio-Sen, aj.ipane.se territory.
The erection of fortifications along
the Panama canal having been mentioned as necessary by a prominent
public man of the United States, various public journals in Europe are discussing the propriety of such action
and the desirability of making diplomatic representations on the subject.
They may save their breath. The
United States will fortify the canal.
The big ditch is of vital importance
to the United States. She needs it to
provide a short way for her merchant
marine and for her navy between her
Atlantic and her Pacific coasts. She
is spending several hundred million
dollars upon its construction. She
will make sure of its safety, not only
by fortifications, but by controlling the
government of the neighboring Cen
tral American republics.
Does any European country care
as much about preventing her from
doing these things as she cares about
doing them? If it does can it prevent
her?    Will it try?

The end will come when  business men on this coast present their case clearly to the right  authorities. The railways have  this habit. The custom of moving farm products eastward, to  the mill and the port is hard to  vary in favor of the west. It has  also become the habit of the  transportation companies to supply the west with manufactured  goods and most other things from  the east. That makes freight  both ways and keeps up eastern  industries. It gives a long haul.  Besides, it is the old way and in  tbe past was a natural and necessary coarse of trade. Railways  are apt to be conservative,  But the time has come when  there is to be no east and no west  in the matter of transportation  rates.

If it does, it will  cost the medical departments of  both governments on this continent the most vigilant labor to  exclude it.  We can all remember the fight  which was made against the disease when it found its way inlo  San Francisco, a fight which,  much to the credit of the city and  of the health societies, was successful. But San Francisco was  much more able to cope with such  an enemy than the olher cities  on the Pacific coast are.  It had large means and great  facilities for carrying on its work  of stamping out the disease.  There would be very much less  prospect of a successful fight  should Seattle or Tacoma be attacked, and the prospects, we are  afraid, would be absolutely nil if  the scourge made its appearance  in this country.  It would be the part of wisdom,  therefore, for the authorities to  take some steps without delay,  not oulv to prevent the entry of  this scourge into the country, but,  should it make its presence felt  here, of dealing with it effectually.        ^^_____^  TRANSPORTATION  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has some  important patronage on his hands  ���at this moment.

A POSSIBLE DANGER  It looks as if the governments  of the United States and Canada  would have to take prompt and  strenuous measures if thev are to  prevent the introduction of Asiatic cholera into this continent.  From Russia, where its ravages  have been extremely great, and  where they still continue almost  unabated, this plague has reached  Southern Europe and is scourging  some of the most congested centers of Italy. The fact that the  steamship route from Naples to  New York is greatly patronized,  especially by tourists, gives  reason for fear that it may be introduced into the United States  through that channel. But it is  not on the Atlantic side only that  the danger threatens.   The dis-  Thft organization of a Transportation Bureau to conserve the  interest of this province in freight  matters does not commence too  soon.  There is no doubt that freight  rates from the coast eastward are  much higher than the coast westward.  It is impossible to defend the  discrimination shown in the fig  ures given at the Board of Trade  meeting recentlv. In some com.  parisons the mountain grades are  given as the reason for the higher rates which interfere with distribution from Vancouver, and  with the .export of prairie grain  by the Vancouver route. But  there are mountains between Montreal and Fernie or Nelson. They  do not seem to work the same  effect on rates as the mountains  in the way of freight bound to or  from the coast.  The Pacific ports are  deprived  of the advantages of their position as distributing centers. They  lose their fair chance to do business as points of export of interior produce. They are penalized  if they undertake to grind wheat  for their own use or for export,  instead of purchasing in the  shape of flour from Winnipeg or  the Lake of the Woods.  Obviously this thing cannot go  Marshall Hall will not take the  leading part in the defence of  Crippen as announced.  Chavey, v the Peruvian aviator  who crossed the Alps in a monoplane, and fell 7.000 leet, has died  of his injuries.  The Merritt Herald interests  have been acquired by a joint  stock company, with five local  citizens as the stockholders.  What the people of the prairie  provinces think of the peaches of the  Okanagan country is eloquently exemplified by a telegram to Reeve R.  H. Agur, of Summerland, by Mr. E.  E. Samson, manager of the Okanag-  Fruit Union, Ltd., a copy of which  Hon. Price Ellison,"minister of lands,  exhibited on his return to Victoria recently.  The message came from Winnipeg, to which city a earload of Okanagan peaches had been shipped by the  union. The exhibition was for but  the briefest space, for here is what  Manager Sampson had to report by  wire: "Carload peaches all sold  within 90 minutes. Duplicate order  quickly if quality and price are the  same."  Mr. Ellison, who has returned from  a hurried official visit to his constituency, states that not only the peaches,  but all fruits, indeed, all natural products of the district, are this year being sent to market in prize condition.  Although it is as yet early in the season, the fruit on the whole is showing  size, color and quality, bringing the  highest market returns.  So heavy are the demands made  upon the transportation company in  -the quick handling of the Okanagan  crop that although there is now a  double daily freight service on the  Shuswap & Okanagan line, it is found  necessary in order to get consignments  through to attach fruit refrigerator cars  to each outgoing passenger train.  In his attempt to be&t the  world's "shaving record" {?&  men in an hour.) Mr. Tea  Grimes, .a barber of Broken Hill,  New Sotlth Wales, succeeded in  having 55 men in 35 minutes.  The experiment then ended owing  to the failure in the supply of unshaven men. Most of the 65 men  had both upper lips and chin  shaved.

Nine times in ten stomach derangements are responsible for sallow complexion, dull eyes and thin body  It is the stomach that supplies nourishing blood to the muscles, the nerves,  and skin. If the stomach is healthy,  plenty of nourishing matter will be  absorbed by the blood. If it is not  healthy, the food will fcrement, and  undigested, will pass along through  the bowels, furnishing so little nutritious that the blood becomes impoverished, and the glow of health vanishes.  If you suffer from nervousness, sick  headache, belching of gas, sour taste  in the mouth, heaviness after eating, or  any other miserable stomach disturbance, you need M.i-o-na, and the  Sooner you get it the quicker you will  be healthier and happier.

The Chairman then rose.   -  L,ad!es and Gentlemen���Wo have  another very plcasinp presentitiou to  make tonight, and I would like Scoutmaster Hargreaves to step this way.  Mr. J. D. Spence then addressed the  audience:  Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, and members of Greenwood  Corps No. 1���This is not on the program. I can assure yon that Mr. Hargreaves knows nothing whatever about  this very pleasant duty which has been  entrusted to me. You have seen only  a small portion of the work of the Boy  Scouts here tonight. Very pleasant  work it is, and very orderly and systematic. But in order to make it thus  pleasant and interesting to the boys,  as well as instructive, there has to be  a great deal of hard work done behind  the scenes. There have to be days,  and nights, too, spent by some one in  order to produce this excellent result,  and the man who has done the-hard  work, and to whom the credit is due for  this showing is Scoutmaster Hargreaves. (Applause.) Scoutmaster  Hargreaves is one of the most modest  men in the world. I am sure that this  is a positive pain to him. It has taken  some little time for Mr. Hargreaves'  good work to become known and appreciated here in Gfeenwddl, but thc��e  who have come.i:3^k\fa$fc;him,"';^Mtye  fp��ad--him a getitiemao  and -a^gqod'  - There!* no greater proof of his. good  ci tlzenahip^tlMnfthenorK: which tie taas  be^n'doiii^ i|oJ;ftriietly and 'so conscien-  tionjriy^ysj^ past among the boys  ofiiilJiSi^g^g^rNow, he has not had  all the, encouragement and support that  he Bhould have had. I know for myself, that were I staying in Greenwood,  I should for one, take a more active  interest in the'f Premier's Own," and  do all I could to help the Scoutmaster  in his undertakings.  Some of Mr. Hargreaves' friends,  and I can assure you that he has a  great many, and some of the friends  of Corps No. 1, have thought it well to  arrange for a gold medal for the Scoutmaster, and I have great pleasure, Mr.  Hargreaves in presenting it to you in  token of the appreciation of the citizens of Greenwood of the work you  have done for Corps No, 1, and for this  city;   (Applause.)  In responding, Mr. Hargreaves  thanked everybody. Latterly the work  has been a very great pleasure to me.  The fine showing the boys have made  in their lessons taught them, the interest taken by the parents and others in  the boys' work has been a great encouragement. When I first took up  this great work I had to cope with  much opposition, and it was up-hill  work indeed. I wish to thank everybody who has taken part in this evening's- entertainment, especially the  committee who have helped so bravely  to make the evening a success; all  those who kindly decorated the hall,  and took so much of the general arrangements off my hands. I am sure  you will agree with me that the boys  are the better for their training, and I  hope you will all assist me as much as  possible in the work I am trying to do  for the betterment of the Greenwood  boys.   (Applause.)  The presentation of the colors, a fine  Union Jack, given to the troop by  Premier McBride, was made by Martin  Burrill, M. P., who spoke as follows: .  Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen of Greenwood, and Mr. Har  greaves and Boy Scouts���I esteem it a  very great' pleasure, sir, to have the  honor to address a few words to you,  and I also esteem it a very great honor  to be able to present this flag to your  troop which Premier McBride has  given to you. Like others here, this  evening's entertainment has been  somewhat of a revelation to me. We  have all been familiar with the life  history of Sir Baden Powell, one of  England's great generals, a man whose  name stands for British right and  might all over the empire. A man  who stood for Britain and her flag in  far off South Africa, and who will be  long remembered for his noble defense  of Mafeking, an outpost of British  rule fn that great war. A man who,  after he had given his great service to  the Umpire, instead of retiring as  many might have done, content with  the laurels of an honorabls military  career, has devoted his intimate knowledge of life, and unique energies, to  the greatest movement for the welfare  and development of young men the  world has seen, the Baden-Powel^Boy  Scouts, named after himself, the founder and organizer of the movement, So  wide has become its popularity that I  am creditably informed there are no  less than 200,000 Boy Scouts in Great  Britain alone. A 'few days ago, while  addressing 2,000 Boy Scouts at Ottawa,  Sir Baden Powell stated that the movement had not only spread to the furthermost outposts of our glorious Empire, but that on landing recently in  the Argentine Republic, he was greeted and welcomed by a large contingent of Boy Scouts. The same experience was met with in Peru and  Chile. So you see it is not only in  Great Britain and her over-sea Dominions that Boy Scouts learn to be men,  but in almost every- civilized land, the  good work being done here in Greenwood, for the benefit of the boys, our  successors in a few years of life's responsibilities and duties, is being carried out.  This flag, which is the token and  emblem of ;bur race as British subjects  has been donated to you by Premier  McBride, who, I am sure, would have  wished to present it to you in .person,  and I am sure I am only expressing  whar he would himself have said to  you, when I urge you to uphold the  honor of your country's flag, your  province, and your town, and quit you  like men in all things.  It was a great pleasure lo ine to visit  your headquarters and to see the character of the work you are doing, and a  great pleasure to meet your most excellent Scoutmaster. T can truly say  that the welfare of thi* members of the  Premier's Own Hoy Scouts is in good  hands.  The singitijr of the National anthem  brought the program to a close.  The ball, which took |.iace afterwards, was a most enjoyable one, and  only came to a reluctant end at 4:30  a. m , and was in every way a credit  lo all concerned.

Some blamed yood fellows lie asleep  down   yonder   where the   tall   grass  waves,   but   no one ever  comes  to  weep,   or  plant  rosebushes   on their  graves.    They calmly rest in paupers'  beds,   and   wait   the   judgment,   in a  row, no shining tombstones o'er their  heads, no requiem but the   winds thai  blow.    They were   the   shiftless, tri-j  fling lads, upon a weary world turned '  loose; they never learned   to   nail the!  scads, and salt them down   for winter;  use.

A man   whose   eyes are  wide apart, whose hands are reaching  in his jeans, who listens rather  to his  heart   than   to   the   teachings  of  his  brains, is apt to join the pauper crowd,  and  perish   after   many knocks,   and  wear a cheap,   old-fashioned   shroud,  and slumber in a misfit box,     Whereas, if he   is  shrewd   and   wise,  with  lips that close up like a   hasp, and little space between the eyes, and hands  that  hang  to  what  they   grasp,   his  death will  fill  the town  with gloom,  and mourners will bewail the day, and  he will have a corking tomb in which  to loaf the years away.���Walt Mason.

CHRISTMAS FRUIT  A fine opportunity will be afforded  those having friends in the Old Country to send them very acceptable  Christmas gifts this year, and to incidentally give our fruiters a good advertisement. Many people have, in  former years, desired to forward packages of fruit to their friends in Great  Britain, but have been deterred by the  high express charges and the /uncertainty of the fruit reaching its destination in good condition. These difficulties have now been overcome by  an arrangement between the Vernon  Board of Trade and the C. P. R.  whereby a shipment of fruit will be  sent forward in November at car rates,  in cold storage, and will be distributed  by an agent in Liverpool to those to  whom it is addressed. The charge  will probably not exceed 80 cents a  box, and it will be handled in such a  manner as to ensure safe and speedy  delivery in good condition. Mr.  H. P. Lee, of Vernon, has been  authorized by the Board of Trade to  take charge of this shipment, and will  be glad to furnish further information  to those desiring to avail themselves of  this opportunity. The papers of the  the interior are requested to make  mention of this, as by so doing they  will probably confer a favor upon  some of their local readers.  You can't know too much, but  it is easy to say too much.  HE FEARED BLOOD POISON  But Zam-Buk saved h!s thumb  Once again a case is reported in  which the popular balm Zam-Buk has  saved a worker from the terrible effects of blood-poisoning. Mr. Alfred  Hy. Ortti. of Shipley," Out., says:  '���While at work I had the misfortune  to run a rusty nail under my thumb  nail, to the depth of one and a half  inches. The pain was terrible and  what 1 feared was that the nail, being  so dirty and rusty, would set up festering and blood-poison. I knew from  previous experience how good Zam-Buk  was, so I cleaned the thumb, melted a  little Zam-Buk, and ran it into the  wound. The result was wonderful!  It soothed the pain and the thumb actually did not swell, Zam-Buk kept  away all inflammation I was able to  go on with my work all the time, and  in a few days the thumb was as good  as ever. A balm which can do this  should be in every working man's  home."  Zam-Buk is the finest form of "insurance" for all workers. Its antiseptic power is so great that no disease  germ can live in it; and if immediately  applied to a sore or injury, or diseased  patch, all danger of blood-poison is  averted.  Being composed of pure vegetable  essences, Zam-Buk is an ideal balm for  babies and young children, and  mothers will find it far superior to the  ordinary salves some of which contain  harmful mineral poisons, rancid animal fat, etc.  Zam-Buk is a sure cure for ulcers,  abscessss, eczema, ringworm, blood-  poison, scalp sores, chapped hands,  cold sores, infiammed patches, bad leg,  varicose veins and ulcers, piles, cuts,  burns, oruises, and all skin diseases  and injuries. Sold by all druggists  and storekeepers at 50c a box. .^ for  S1.2S. Post free from Zam-Buk Co.,  Toronto, for price. Avoid harmfuf  imitations and substitutes.  bod Furnace  McClary's.
