The account of the disaster is that of Flight  Lieutenant A. H. Warm, commander  of the airship at the time the trial trip  was being made:  "The whole thing happened in five  seconds," Wann said, lying in Hull  Hospital. "My ship was running  beautifully at 60 knots an hour as w-e  swung over the city of Hull. Ou.  tests were nearly finished and we  hoped to be down soon. I had just  signalled that speed be reduced to 50  knots when suddenly I heard a terrific crack. I believe that-several  girders must have broken. The ship  buckled and. an explosion occurred,  the cause of which will probably  never be known.  "I felt the forward car, from which  I was commanding the ship, falling  swiftly through the air Immediately  after the loud crack amidships, then  it "rose sharply at right angles. I  pulled on the water ballast for the  purpose of levelling the keel, when  suddenly tliere was5 a terrific explosion whicli I felt and heard in the forward car, and I think many men were  killed outright by the blast, for they  would have been inside, the envelope  amidships. Some,of the officers and  - crew jumped when the ship caught  fire, but I remained on board until we  were close to the water .then I jumped  but was .caught by . wreckage and  "pinned down for fifteen minutes.  Flaming pieces of the ZR-2 fell about  me and I was .burned about the-head-j  and - face. 4.1 lost consciousness and  when I woke I was in the hospital." .  The ZR-2 was the largest airship In  the world! It was built by lhe British  government for the United States and  ���������������������������j was In--the act of making final tests  , before being turned over when the  disaster took place. The airship was  694 feet lo'ng, had a diameter of S4  feet, a lifting capacity of 90 tons and  a cruising radius of 5,600 miles.  teases the George Ranch  Mr. and Mrs. Thos. S. Morton ancl  Mrs. George, are moving to Enclerby  from their ranch near Grindrod, and  are renting thg Greyell house when it  is vacated by thc manager or the  Bank of Hamilton, who is taking the  cottage of W.

'  Sad, but True  A preacher once said: "Editors  dare not,tell the truth. If they did  they could not live, and tbe newspapers would be a failure." The  Editor replied: "You are right, and  the minister who will at all times  tell the truth about his members,  alive or dead, will never occupy the  same pulpit more than one Sunday,  ancl he'll find it necessary to leave  town in a hurry. The press and pulpit go hand in hand with whitewash brush and kind words, magnifying little virtues into big ones.  The pulpit and the press are a saint-  making partnership."  "It ain't the guns and armaments or  the funds that we can  pay;  But close co-operation that will help  us win the day.  It ain't the individual or tne army as  a whole;  But the unfailing team-work of every  loyal soul."  Rev. J, W. Stott is attending a  meeting of the Presbytery at Salmon  Arm this week.

C. Municipalities at  Port Alberni this week. The^ delegates were escorted from Parksville  t0 Alberni by Alberni motorists and  officials. The entire absence of provincial ministers gave rise to much  adverse comment, and there were  indications that that hardy annual,  the transprovincial highw;ay, is the  one big question to be dealt with.  The automobile e=ubs of Vancouver  Penticton and Kamloops presented  a joint resoution containing a formal  demand for a declaration of the government's intentions and policy, arid  also demanding a public _ announcement forthwith. Percy Gomery, representing the resolution, said the- respective merits of the Hope-Princeton  or Fraser Canyon route were not so  much of concern if the government  would take some action. His state-,  ments were supported by other delegates, who said the present convention would not, as heretofore, request "  action, but would demand lt. Several  delegates insisted 'that the government's policy of inaction was ren:  dering the work and- aspirations of  the Good Roads League practically  valueless, not only, in connection with  the transprovincial highway' but in  connection with many similar undertakings.  .' The   government's    attitude   as   to  financial   help   for  the   municipalities  was also criticised informally by del- -  egates  to . the   municipal   convention,...

Miss S. G. Walker, returned to  Enderby on Monday from Waterville,  Wash., where she was called in April  by the illness of her sister.

At a colored camp meeting in  Louisiana, says Harper's, the following sermon was delivered by a very  black darky, wearing Huge spectacles: "Brethren, ancl slstern: De  speachifying dis mawntn' will be  from de text on de ten virgins. De  bridegroom war a-comin.' an' spectin'  dem ten virgins to be ready wif dere  lamps all trimmed an' a-burnin', but,  lo, when he was come he don foun'  dat only five of dem virgins wrar  ready; yes, sir, five was trimmed an'  five was untrimmed, five was wise  and five was onwise, five was ready  and five was onready, five was male  an' five female."  As soon as the'breeaing season is  over the fowl that are not-intended  to be kept for future .breeders should  be disposed of. The birds should be  either put into a yard or confined to  part of the yard,, the rest being-limed,  ploughed or. spaded, and seeded-to  green crop such as rape or rye.  All litter should be" removed =��������������������������� from  the house and the ceiling, walls and  floor thoroughly swept. ��������������������������� Movable  fixtures should be taken out and the  whole interior given-a thorough washing. The best' way to do this is to  use the hose if you have one, after  the -hose giving the building "a good  flood'ng and scrub it down with a  stiff brush. If there is no hose, be  even moro caieful about scrubbing.  After the house has been thoroughly  .cleaned__.give___it a___so_aking ..with   a  ,-*  : V?  In years that are gone the women  put on their best clothes just before  being photographed, but now they  take them off.  strong disinfectant. One of the coal  tar preparations will be fou'hcl satisfactory for this purpose. This should  be applied with a spray pump so that  it will be forced into all the cracks  and crevices of the building. If there  is no spray pump, use a brush, but be  sure to get it into these cracks and  crevices.  The house should bc left standing  for "a couple of days to dry out, leaving it wide open to allow the sun and  air to enter freely. Tt should then be  given a good application of whitewash. The fixtures, nest boxes, roosts  ancl dropping boards which have been  removed should bo treated in a similar manner.  At the time of this annual house-  cleaning it is a good plan to note  what repairs to the houses, fixtures  and fences are needed and have them  made as soon as possible. Also clean  up ancl burn any accumulation of  rubbish, leaving nothing under which  vermin may hide. A clean house free  from lice and mites is easy to keep  clean. Then see that the pullets are  healthy and free from lice, when they  are put in, and the problem cf winter  eggs is more than half solved.���������������������������Geo.

But the real purpose of the government Avas undoubtedly morc  far reaching  lhan   that.

Born  in  Walpolc   township,  Hallm.ma  county,  Ontario, in   1841,   a   son   of   Rev.   William   and  Rachel  (Pugslcy)  Wood, he passed his boyhood  and gained his education in liie schools of Simcoe,  but,  being of  a   restless  disposition  and  a  natural pioneer, he was always looking forward  for a chance to explore the great wesr, and while  yel a   boy   laid   his   books   aside   and   suddenly  started olf with Alonzo Davis, an old forty-niner,  (and an uncle of the Commoner editor) "for the  placer excitement  in  Cariboo   in   thc  spring  of  1802.    Hc was not as" successful in mining as he  had anlicipatcd, and in the fall of the same year  left thc mines and look up fanning on the Eraser  liver below New Westminster.    In 1882 hc came  lo lhe Okanagan and started a business al Lansdowne, bul thcrc his building was destroyed b\L  I/ire, at once, however, being rebuilt, and his business continued with success.   Later Iicmoving to  Armstrong, hc practically founded lhal town on  his own ranch.   In 1895, going to the present site  of Greenwood to investigate the outlook for mining and   trading,  hc  was  very 'much  impressed  bolh by lhc resources cf the mineral district and  Ihc   natural   advantages  offered  for  a   iownsitc,  and a I once began the work of laying oul a new  lown.    The townsite was owned by the firm of  R. Wood,& Co., Mr. Wood having sold a large  part, of lhc land to C. Scotl Galloway.    Thcrc he  made his homc up lo a few month's before his  death, when lie went to Vancouver for treatment.

Realizing   this,   the    decision    was*  reached   by   the   Provincial Governments    of _ Manitoba, Saskatchewan  and  Alberta,  that  if the  Canadian  Pacific Railway   would   provide the  service,    a    special    Jnterprovincial  train on weed    control    would    be  equipped and sent out.   The Railway  Company concurred in the plan, and  on the morning of 24th January the  Special    train    consisting    ������������������.f    two  lecture cars, one car for display of  implements, another exhibiting . row-  =-������������������ug-=-weeds;^&c.,^and^-Tourist=Pining  Car,  opened  up  at  Pominion  City,  Man.'; upon a tour of six weeks���������������������������two  weeks to each province���������������������������to conclude  In Southern Alberta the first week  in   March.     Any   pessimism   which  may have existed with respect to the  success of this   mission    was   soon  dispelled.     From  the  outset   great  Uiiliculty  was  experienced  !������������������  baud-  ling the large crowds at each point  visited, and on some occasions it was  necessary to obtain tiie  use of the  local hall in order to accommodate  all.     This manifestation of interest  on part of the farmers greatly encouraged   the    speakers    with    the  train, who put forth their best efforts  and    received  a splendid    response  with  an  assurance   of   earnest   cooperation.  The Weed Exhibit car t as a popular centre of interest to both young  and old. Here were paintings and  living and pressed plants to illustrate the worst weeds; and with  these we're companion cards indicating the means of eradication.  Many kinds of weed seeds were  shown under magnifying glasses, and  models of weed seeds enlarged to  forty diameters were shown. 'Soil  plots with weeds growing from weed  seed planted on the trip, indicated  the rapidity with which some typical  weeds developed when not promptly  attended to. In these plots the type  of Implements suggested for the  eradication of each type of weed appeared. In another section space  \yas devoted to Natural History,  featuring certain bugs, the grasshopper and the cutworm, each In  various stages, with charts showin :  th:> methods.of destroying these  pests. ---"-:���������������������������.rr..--.~-   ������������������������������������������������������^m~  (1) The Inter-Provincial Weed Special standing on the fin^nff j  a������������������ Dominion City.  (2) School children visiting the Wee4 Special at OaJ* Uke.  The second exhibit car contained  various types of machinery employed  in connecMo-. with weed destruction,  seed cleaning and cultivation purposes generally.  Thc two Lecture cars, which were  used for this purpose only, were  adorned with placards bearing upon  the weed question.  The staff accompanying the train,  provided by tile Dominion and Provincial Governments. Agricultural  Colleges and Schools, included  prominent authorities in agricultural  matters as obtaining J in Western  Canada. Throfgh each Province  either the Ittinister of Agricultura or  the Deputy Minister directed a programme which varied from day to  day to suit the prevailing conditions  of the ^district visited, for instance,  a district badly infested with the  Russian Thistle may have also suffered from the grasshopper plague  of last year���������������������������these two matters  would he treated by special authorities instructing, thoroughly upon  the measures, to be taken to combat  them. Another district had an abundance of couch grass, or mustard, or  the cutwoim had r a/aged the crops  ���������������������������each of tbese would receire very  special attention with definite Instructions to those affected. A cer*  tain amount ot time was taken af  eacb point for tbe discussion ot otaey,  agricultural topics, sucb as wlntef!  feeding, growing of corn and sunflowers (much interest was taken U\  th'e matter ot sunflowers for fooder)!  clover, alfalfa, and fall rye, also tbe  advantages cf having a silo on the  farm. The discourses were of sucb  a varied and comprehensive nature  that it would be difficult to go Into'  detail, but tbe writer is satisfied tbat  no other similar train bas ever accomplished so much within sucb a  short time. During the six weeke  three thousand five hundred miles  was covered, seventy-four point*  visited, and "feevcnty-sls meeting*  held, with an aggregate attendance  of fifteen thousand four hundred and  eighty people. '  The objective of the Provincial  Governments and the Canadian Pacific Railway, was to arouse publio  sentiment to the seriousnsas of tba  weed situation, and it is believed that  this has been accomplished and'tbe  venture thoroughly justified. .   < s\  OKANAGAN  COMMONER  Thursday, Sept. 1, 1921  X X n.  x ���������������������������  y  st  st   st st  CHURCH   SERVICES  mr   mr   ms-^mr   ms   m.*   vr mr   mr   ms  o* st   st   st  st   st  st  st  st  st  ST.'GEORGE'S  CHURCH  :"Rey.
