R E Tucker, brother in law  of Mrs. G. B. Garrett, is now in  cemmand of the R. N. M. P. at  White horse.  About a month ago Mrs Frank  McFarlane reported to the government police at Grand Forks that her  house in the Ruckle addition bad  been entered and a lady's gold  watch and chain stolen. This saemed  to be a case of a clean get away, as  no trace of how the house had been  entered was left behind. However,  suspicion fell upon some youthful  artists at the game. These were  brought before Magistrate MeCallum  in the provincial police court last  Thursday by Geo. Stan field, of the  provincial police, and the story was  there unfolded. The outcome of it  all was.the youthful lourglar (aged  10) was allowed to go home with his  mother, who promised to attend to  him, and the watch and chain were  returned to the anxious owner.  The Consolidated company o  Trail now employs thirty men at  the Rock Candy mine and sixteen  men at the Lynch Creek concentrator.

W. H Kirkpatrick, traffic manager of the C.P.R., was in the city  on Saturday in his private car.  The Monueal Gazette has the following of the death of W. W.  Mowat:  "Advices in   Montreal  announce  the death in England on September  15 of W. W. Mowat, a well  known  figure   in   the  educational   life  in  Montreal. Mr. Mowat went to  England in June last and there suffered  a breakdown  which   prevented   his  carrying out his intention of visiting  his birthplace, Glasgow.    Since that  time   he"  gradually   sank," passing  away at the home of his sister, Mrs  Arthur   James,   at  CutnaJI  Green,  Drortwich.    Mr. Mowat was  born  at Glasgow 84 years ago and in addi  tion to being a graduate of  Glasgow  and Edinburgh   universities   was a  certificated   master.    He   came  to  Canada   in   18SS, settling  in  Montreal, where  he  founded   and   was  principal of   the Grammar   School,  which educated many of Montreal's  leading   professional   and  business  men.    He  afterwards   became   examiner  for the   colleges   affiliated  with   McGill   university.    He   was  regarded as one of Canada's leading  scholars in English literature, Latin,  and mathematics.    Mr. Mowat   enjoyed tbe distinction of  being one of  rwo bonoray members of the Thistle   Curling   club, the other   being  Lord Aberdeen. He was  a member  of the Metropolitan Golf   club  and  was also a  Mason.    Mr.   Mowat   is  survived by a widow, five sons   and  three daughters���������John, o.f  Victoria;  Lieut. G. N., with the 4th Canadian  regiment;  Sergt.   A   N., of Green-  wood;Capt. Norman McL, who won  distinction on two occasions on  the  battlefields of France, and   Cipt. G.  F.

For each child, for instance, he is allowed $200; and he  must have an. income of at least  ������2000 after these exemptions have  been made before he will have to  pay any income. The improbability  of the average man coming within  the scope of ttie act is manifest.

The defendont gave her an engagement ring, and they kept company  until August, 1919. Then he broke  his engageinen to her, she says, and  married a lady in Eholt.

He was not here to  pose for them. lb remained for The  Family Aerald and Weekly. Star of  Montreal to secure a portrait that  would be satisfactory, and they have  succeeded. Just before leaving for  Canada the prince gave a special sitting to the celebrated London, England, photographer, Van Dyke. The  agents of The Family Herald were  instructed to secure the right to reproduce it in Canada, and that great-  weekly is now offering it to its  readers.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1919  On Saturday  last  the governor-general of  Canada passed-through the western section of  our city without stopping. The Sun   has been  reliably informed that when the special  train  on which his excellency vvas travelling reached  Midway, a member of his party  sent a  telephone message to this city asking  if the citizens  of Grand Forks desired the  vice-regal  party to stop here.    It is said that the parties  who received   the message paid no attention  to it,  the  presumption being that they were  piqued because the Prince of Wales' party had  failed to stop here a week cerlier.    As governor-general  of Canada, .the Duke of Devonshire was  entitled   to   more courteous treatment.    Other   towns   and cities  west  of   us  have been   lavish   in   entertaining   his party,  and they are deriving a great deal of publicity  from   this  s<u>'ce.    Grand ..Forks could have  obtained the same advertising at a very small  cost. A stop here of a few hours and an automobile  drive   through   the   orchard   district  would have   been  an   inexpensive  entertainment, and it would have been a good  investment.  Columbia. The colonel has a peculiar method  of recording the age of his paper. He has published papers in half a dozen towns under the  ���������same title, and he dates his Greenwood excitement from the first issue of the Nakusp Ledge,  which appeared' about twenty-six years ago.  This does not make a legal continuity. A  spirit might as reasonably date his advent into  spiritland from the time of his birth on earth.  When a paper is dead it is dead. Besides,  there was a hiatus in the colonel's management of the Greenwood Ledge some years ago  when the colonel had, or .thought he had, a  call to publish a paper in "Vancouver. We are  willing to wager our rawnch against the hole  in a doughnut that the Grand Forks Sun has  been under one management and one editorship longer than any other rural paper in  British Columbia, and,by slightly altering the  odds we will also include the metropolitan  press of the province.

With the  use of artificial.light, it is a trying time for the eyes. If slight defects already exist, n dim or unsteady light will greatly, aggravate  the situation. This is particularly true among children, whose vitality and power of resistance is much lower than grown-ups. Inflamed lids, styes, headache and watery eyes are almost sure indications of pome sort of eye trouble. If your child has trouble with  his eyes, bring him in and let us examine his eyes. .    <  A. D. MORRISON  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B. G.  V  J  Concerning the discourteous . treatment  meted out to this city by those who mapped  out his royal highness' itinerary there may,  after all, be some extenuating circumstances.  There are those in this city who maintain that  if our member and the federal government  had not been uselessly harrassed and irritated  during the past six months by petitions and  resolution upon a subject on which, apparently, a majority of people of the country do  not hold the same views as a portion of the  population of this valley, Grand Forks would  have been one of the prince's stopping places.  It is all right to say that statesmen should be  above petty spite work. But all statesmen  nowadays are politicians. What would you  have done had you been in Mr. Burrell's place?  This subject, however, is now adeadissne,and  we have desire to discuss it further. We only  referred to it in order that it might point a  moral and prevent a similar course being pursued toward the provincial government, thereby prejudicing tlie coast authorities against  our claim for an irrigation system.  The  soldiers  saved  civilization,  bonds will <iive it long life.  Victory  MAINTAINING A BIG FAMILY  In these dnys the man with a big family is  inclined to make periodical summation of his  food and household bills, and then ��������� complain  vociferously to lhe four winds. War pricps,  followed by famine prices, bring special responsibilities upon the head of every home.  Canada, for five years, has maintained a  great-army in the field, and only recently has  demobilizhd the last of that force. The household bills of a family consisting of half-a-  million lusty and hungry sons is not inconsiderable, but they must be met.  After Armistice day a year ago there was a  steady How of soldiers homeward.. About  100,000 men were repatriated before March  31st last, the end of the federal fiscal year.  That left, roughly, 300,000 to be maintained,  clothed, paid, transported across the Atlantic,  and demobilized, with the statutory gratuities  in their hands. The work has been done within eight months. The cash has been advanced  to meet these inescapable war charges, and  now it is necessary for such floating debts to  be funded by another Victory loan.  What was the charge for "feeding and finding" the Canadian soldiers in France? For the  six months ending on June 30th last,this item  alone reached $38,933,333.33. Thrice that  amount was needed to provide the men's pay.  The charge during the same period for clothing, boots, necessaries and oufit allowances  was $8,063,230.95. So- the money* went, in  payment of financial obligations undertaken by  reason of the war.  Canada is composed, not of so much arable  land, so much mineralized rock, so much forest and stream, but of the people who inhabit  it. The spirit of Canada is the mass spirit of  Canadians. The Dominion made a distinctive  and notable record. Canada- has displayed  sanity and intelligence in meeting the problems  of reconstruction   as   they have arisen in the  past year.

If  coated, your little one's stomach, livor  and bowels need cleansing at once.  When peevish, cross, listless, doesn't  sleep, cat or act naturally, or is feverish, stomach sour, breath bad; lias sore  throat, diarrheca, full of cold, give a  teaspoonful of "California Syrup of  Figs," and. in a few hours all the foul,  constipated, waste, undigested food and  sour bile gently moves out of its little  bowels without griping, and. you have a  well, playful child again.

Guest.)  Once there was a boy who never  Tore his clothes, or hardly ever,  Never made his sister mad,  Never whipped fer bein' bad,  ; Never scolded by his Ma,  ���������Never frowned at by hisPa,  Always fit fer folks to see,  Always good as good could be.  This good little boy from Heaven,  So I'm'told,' was only seven,  Yet he never shed real tears  When his mother scrubbed his ears,  An' at times when he was dressed  Fer a party, in his best,   *.  He was careful of his shirt  Not to get it smeared with dirt  Used to study late at night  Learnin' how to read and write; ���������  When they played a baseball game,  Llight away he always came  When his mother called him in.  An' he never made a din  Bub was quiet as a mouse  When they'd com'p'ny in the house.  Liked to wash his hands an' face,  Liked to workaround the place;  Never, when he'd tired of play,  Left his wagon in .the way  Or his bat an' ball around���������  Put 'em where they could be found;  An'  that good boy married Ma,  An' today he ie my Pa  "I understand ��������� you came from a  great game country?" said the lady  on the committee to welcome the  grizzly warriors of the western  plains  "Indeed, yes ma'am," was the cowboy's reply.  "What is the biggest game you  have in Wyoming?"  "Poker, ma'am."  Devil to Pay  When it comes to the matter of political trickery, modern nations, one  and all, seem to be pretty well tarred  with the same brush. The following  inoideut, retold with a flavor of Gallic  irony by the Cri de Paris, is said to  have taken place at Toulouse.  On election day a young man came  to a booth to vote.  "But, monsieur," said one of the  overseers, "you have already   voted."  "I1? Allona donee! I am certain  that 1 have riot."  A search being made of the records  it was discovered that there has been  an error in the recording of the Chris  tian names. It is not Marius Tarta-  rin that has voted, but Gonzague  Tartarlu.  "Gonzague!" cried the young man.  "you are quite sure that he has  voted?"  "Yes, indeed! Look, here is the  register."  "Ah, how I regret not haying been  here," said the young man. "I svould  have embraced him with pleasure. He  is my fatqer."  "Your father?"    ���������  "Yes, and I have not seen him  since lie died, four years ago."

Every one who bought Canada's Victory Bonds has  received 5V2 per cent, interest per annum���������paid twice a  year.  Over half a million Canadians who bought Canada's  Victory Bonds on the instalment plan saved money that  they would not otherwise have saved.  The guarantee back of Canada's Victory Bonds is  the same as the guarantee back of a One Dollar or a Two  Dollar bill. There is this difference/however, that you  get interest on the Victory Bonds and you don't on the  One or Two Dollar bill.  Canada's Victory Bonds will always be accepted as  security for a loan.
