FOR UNIT N0:2
Government Unanimously Passes Grant of $40,-
000 for Extension of
Irrigation in This Valley
Victoria, March 24.—With the
government's expenditure in the
first unit of the Grand Forks irriga
tion system proving to be a produc
tive investment, little difficulty was
experienced in getting a grant for
the Becond unit of this scheme. Iu
tbe provincial cabinet, yeBterday,
tbe executive decided on the expendi
ture of another $40,000 ou the second unit of this reclamation work.
The grant was passed unanimously
after hearing reports of results
achievod in tbe sale of lands covered
by the operations of the firBt  unit.
Preliminary work in the way of
surveying has been begun by the
municipality's engineer, Major D,
A. Graham, and it is the intention
of the trustees to call for tenders
soon According to present calculations, the unit will be complated
in time to place water on the ground
this year's crop.
Tbe credit for obtaining the loan
to iuetall this unit is principally due
ourmemher, wbo, in company with
D. McPharson, made a trip to Victoria two weeks ago and made
representations to the government
that brought tbe result set forth in

Reasons Why Some
Magazines Are
Barred in Jail
Minneapolis, Minn., March 27 —
The reasons the city council barred
tbe Saturday Eveuing l'ost, the Red
Book magazine aod the Ladies'
Home Journal from circulation
among juvenile prisoners in the city
jail were made public here  Friday.
The Saturday Evening Post was
barred on the ground that it taught
boys disrespect for labor unions.
The Red Book was barred on the
ground tbat its stories made heroes
out ot criminals.
The Ladies' Home Journal was
barred on the ground thai it was a
"namby-pamby" affair and should
not be allowed in any home much
less a jail.
Four magazines were approved.
They are The Youth's Compadion,
American Boy, St. Nicholas and
Good Housekeeping.

Prior to leaving for Ottawa, Hon.
T. D. Pattullo, minister of lauds,
issued instructions for the distribution of literature regarding tire prevention, and readerB who have uot
received this may secure it direct
from the forest branch. Last summer witnessed very heavy fire losses
and this yenr tbe laws have been
made much stricter. British Columbia has an asset in her timber,
which can be conserved indefinitely,
but every citizen mUBt assist in fight

This province has 400,000,000,000

an annual increase tbrough growth

wbile the total capacity of provincial sawmills is only 2,500,000,000

freight rates for British Colambia
So far Alberta and Saskatchewan
hnve Btood solidly behind thiB province in petitioning Ottawa for fairer
treatment in this regard. Recently
the Calgary board of trade decided
not to support British Columbia any
longer, but this action was promptly
repudiated by tbe Alberta government aud Premier Oliver has re
ceived the assurance that the neighboring proviaces are in the fight to
the eud. The government leader
here is known asu lighter who never
gives up aud he has declared that
there can be no truce. British Columbin must have Uie same freight
rates as the eastern provinces and
only iu this way can the west agiee
with the east on matters pertaining
to the general development of the
Dominion.
Premier Oliver is conducting an
extended speakiug tour in British
Columbia and will visit as mauy
points as possible. Iu a few weeks
he will address audiences iu Alberta
and probably Saskatchewan Prominent Conservatives, as well us Liberals, are behind the premier iu this
matter, even Hon. Mr. Bowser, opposition leader, pledging his support.
Figures were quoted recently by
Hon. J. D. .MacLean, provincial
secretary, showing that British Cola
lumbia is the healthiest province in
the Dominion. The larger centers
have remarkably low denth rntes
and the smallei towns have set up
enviable records. The deaths from
accidents have been few as compared with other provinces, but the
people of South Vancouver have
landed upon their feet auain.
Regulations have been pnssed by
department of public works limiting the weight of trucks and their
loads on provincial roads to four
tons. This applies everywhere but
hetween Vancouver and New Wests

Vancouver, March 27.—Coining b
the assistance of lho fruit growers of
the Okanagan, who have adopted
Aaron Sapiro's plan of cooperative
marketing, the Bank of M ont real lias
offered to finance tho cooperative association nt a rate of 0 per cent for
whatever amount of money is re

in British Coluinbia. This offer has
been accepted by the grOMeis.
Announcement to this effect has
been made by W. H. Hogg, snperin

ou the subject will bo made by a
special board of trapo committee con-

"Tho Bank of Montreal has always

Cbnrles Bickerton had paBBed away
at 6 o'clock tbat morning in the
Kootenay Lake general hospital at
Nelson as the result of injuries,, received in a blast at Salino on Thurs
day, the 22nd inst.
The accident occurred nt Salmo.
Mr. Bickerton was employed in McDougail & McChnrles' bridge crew.
Wbile clearing for the new bridge
over the Salmo river, he was struck
by a 50 pound piece of a stump
which was being blasted with dynamite. Only tbree sticks wero used
but the force was such tbat it threw
the fragment of the stump adistancc
of nearly 300 feet. Mr. Biekerlon's
right arm was broken in several
places; his shoulder was also broken
and his skull fractured nnd lungs
punctured, and there was very little
hope of hia recovery from   the first.
The late Mr. Bickerton was 42
yenrs of age. He wns n unlive of
Navau, Out. He was a veteran of
the Boer war, and after the close of
that struggle he came tu Grand
Forks and was employed at Ihe
Orniiby smelter until that conci-in
•leased operations* here He took an
active interest interest in municipal
affairs and served the cily ns alderman for one or two ternm. Taken
all in all, he was a model citizen
and will be greatly missed by the
community.
In 1917 the late Mr. Bickerton
married Miss Ida Donnan, who,
together with two daughters aud
two sons—Vera, Arthur, Earl and
Irene—survive him. He is also
survived by- seven sisters and seven
brothers, most of whom live in Ontario. One brother, Edward, lives in
Vancouver aud will reach bere in
time for the funeral.
Mrs, Brickerton returned from
Nelson yesterday. Sbe was accompanied by her sister, Mrs. Todhunter, of Elko, B. C, and by her
brother Bert of Trail. MisB Stella
Donnon and Wallace Donnon,
brother nnd sister of Mrs. Bickerton,
arrived from Trail. A niece of deceased, Mrs. Campbell, of Devau-
port, Wash., will alBO arrive here
for the funeral.

In financial circles the action of
the Bank of Montreal in agreeing to
lend money lo the growers at tlio
rate of six per ceut has been tho suli.->
jectof groat intorost. Brokers point
out that tho bank has evidently cut

A New York clotliing manufactnrer has
turned over his business to his employees,
lent them *fi*2r>0,000 to serve as working capital and agreed to advise them without any
salary or other payment how to run the business. For the present the manufacturer, Mr.
Dix, and his son will probablycontiae is actual m magers of the factory, after which it
will be seen whether the workpeople can develop among themselves the necessary ability
and unselfishness to conduct the business successfully and for the benefit of all. Everyone
will be interested to watch the course of this
significant experiment. Mr. Dix is himself a
native of Russia and was forty-two years old
when he went to the United .States.
Cooperation
It's not the guns or armament
Or the money they can pay.
It's the close cooperation
That makes 'em win the day.
It is not the individual
Or the army as a whole,
But the everlasting teamwork
Of every bloomin' soul.
—Kipling.
A good natured Irishman from np country
visited a so called "painless dentist" in order
to have a troublesome molar extracted. The
dentist seeing the size of his aatient, and suspecting that he was liable to creete trouble if
the operation wasn't entirely painless, said to
his office boy, "Jimmy, go and get a large s zed
hat pin, and stand behind the operating chair.
As soon as tbe patient gets into position I'll
wink and you jab the pin through the seat of
the chair." When the dentist was ready he
gave the signal to the boy, and with a yell the
big Irishman sprang from the dental chair.
"Well," said the dentist, "that didn't hurt
much, eh!" "No," said the Irishman. "But
Oi didn't know the d— roots went down so
far."

The reparation problem is for the United
States nothing in the world but a problem in
econom'es. The same is true in large measure
of Great Britain. But for France it is both
ecosiomic and political. Until France and
Germany forget the centuries of national
rivalry and the repeated attempts at conquest
first by one notion, then by the other, every
issue between them will be complicated with
political feeling of the most rancorous kind.
There is unfortunately no prospect that the
noment of mutual forgiveness is at hand.
Prance has more to fear from an economically
strong Germany than the people iu this coun-
. ry can easily imagine, but how immeasurably
l ie hope of a tolerable future for the Euro-
Han millious would be improved if France
i id Germany could agree to bury the ambi-
t. ons and the hatreds both of the past and of
the present.
Mustapha Kemal, the chief of the new
Turkish government, is in favor of the polW-
i'..*il emancipation of Turkish women. He de-
■.*' ires that the seclusion of the sex is not
supported either by Turkish tradition or by
r.'ie precepts of the Moslem religion. It is, he
tys, a Persian custom that along with many
other details of the ancient Persiau civiliza
ti jn the Turks accepted after they had con-
ij lered the country. Kemal is probably right
right iu his contention. Ceivainly the nomadic
lurks never hid away their women; indeed
t ley had few places in which to  hide  them.
Ve are inclined to think that Islam has al -
ways been unfavorable to women's appearing
in public, but that may be owing to the Persian rather than to the primitive Arab influence. Kemal himself has recently married the
daughter of a wealthy resident of ^Smyrna.
No Amplifier Needed
Not all public speakers need an amplifier to
make themselves heard. For example, there
is John Barrett, former director of the Pan-
American Union. The Boston Herald prints
this story of him, which an ex president of
tbe United States used to be fond of telling:
One day when the prasident was attendii g
a meeting he asked if Mr. Barrett were pres
ent. The chairman, who knew Mr. Barrett
well, held his hand to his ear a moment and
said, "No, he isn't in this part of the building."
Then he stepped into the hallway, held his
band to his ear and said, "No, he isn't in the
building at all."
Then he stepped to the door of the building
and, leaning out, held his hand to his ear and
said, "No, John Barrett is not in Washington."
So the meeting proceeded.

There are few advantages in modern business to be
compared in practical value with the service your own
office telephone is prepared at any moment of the day
or night to supply you with.
At a minimum outlay in minutes you can get in
direct touch with your desired party possibly hundreds
of miles away where postal or other delay would be a 11
decided drawback. Correspondence cannot compete
with the speed of telephone service, besides which consider carefully the undoubted advantage of a personal
talk.

has already been exported from Vancouver so far this season, there is in
store in elevator at that point 942,-
823 bushels, according to a statement
of E. D. Cotterell, Supt. Transportation. Western Lines.
In an address to the Rotarians in
Montreal laat week, E. W. Beatty,
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, made a pointed statement
to the effect that Canada needs
more capital for its development and
more men for the same purpose.
An old-time stampede will be held
in Culeary. Aha., between July 6th
and July 14th, l'.)23. The programme
will, as usual, include calf roping
contests, broncho busting, and fancy

Resumption of direct steamship
service this spring between Montreal and the principal Norwegian
ports, with tiie object of furthering
the expansion of trade between Can-
ad:! and Norway, is announced by
the Canadian I'acifie traffic ayenL.i
for  the  Norwegian-American  Line.
The Canadian Pacific steamship
"Metagama" recently brought over
to Canada 400 men and women of
tho Hebrides—the first migration
of young Hebrides farmers to Canada under the Ontario Immigration
scheme.
A bill has been introi! I into the
Chamber of Deputies. Paris, authorising the Government to expend
8,750,000 francs on tha Canadisn
travelling exhibition. At least thirty
French towns will be visited by tha
train this summer.
As guests of Preside. Beatty of
the Canadian Pacifi- Railway, fo.it*
ooy members of the young farmers

Canada's exports to tbe United
Kingdom in 1922 were more than
$34,000,000 hic-hri ir value than exports of Ca-.adian -f-ods to ths
United States, i'o the United Kingdom, Canada sold goods to the value
of $374,751,894, and to tha United

AN ELECTRIC LAUNDRY ABOARD SHIP
(1) A first-class smoking room on ths "Empress ot   prance."—(2) A group of   the  laundry   stall  ef the
same liner.—(3) Corner of the finishing departmmt
IT has been said that the modern
ocean liner is a floating hotel,
and this is probably the best description that can be given. A modern
hotel is a city in itself, and a modern
ocean liner of the type of the Canadian Pacific "Empresses" is certainly no less. When a couple of thousand or so of passengers are cut off
from land to spend a week or more
on the ocean, they must have every
convenience and comfort that land
can provide. The ship must be self
sustaining in every particular. In
this respect Canadian Pacific ships
are as complete as modern invention
can make them, and whether their
trips extendi for one week, or six
weeks'aPdoes the cruise of the Mediterranean which the "Empress of
France" made this winter, or even
for three months as In the case of
the cruise around the world to bc
made by the "Empress of Australia"
this year, nothing is lacking to ensure thc complete happiness of all on
board.
A» an instance of the way in which
modern liners are equipped, the newly installed laundry of the "Empress
of Prance" is well worth comment
L OOM $25,000 an* iu compUte plant
and large staff of workers make it
probably the finest of its kind afloat.
In addition to thc large amount of
work undertaken for passengers at
shore prices, it deals with 100,000
pieces of ship's linen per week. This
new department is under the management of G. Dawc, junior, who
controls its staff of six men and
thirty women. Three washing machines form part of the equipment,
and one of these, the largest ever
fitted to a liner, is capable of dealing with 3,000 pieces of linen at a
time, each piece being subjected to
thc entire washing process without
removal. There is also a huge
ironing maohine which will iron and
dry sheets at the rate of 400 per
hour after they have bcen passed
through a power wringer. This
machine is operated by a team of
nine girls. The higher class of'laundry work is done by skilled ironcrs
with press machines and electric
irons, while shirts and collars, etc.,
are starched and finish'd by machines
specially fitted for the purpose. All
the machinery is electrically driven,
and there are elaborati -, electrical
controls for starting, stepping and
regulating the machines,   lu the case
of the washing; machines, electric
motet's are fitted to the top of them,
controlled by an electric timing device which regulates the revolving
and reversing of the inside cylinders.
The oil-burning "Empress of
France" has a length of 571 feet,
beam 72 feet, depth 42 feet, and gross
tonnage of 18,481. The speed which
made her such an asset to.the navy
during the war is still maintained,
and Captain John Gillies, her commander, is the hero of many an exciting race to port. Once aboard the
"Empress" one has nothing to do
but enjoy life while awaiting thc end
of the journey which usually arrives
all too soon. She is a beautifully appointed ship with seven first class
public rooms, including a lounge,
smoking room, card room, and library. Provision is made in thc second-class quarters for three public
rooms, and spacious deck space affords all passengers more than sufficient room for open air games and
ixercise. Her steerage accommodation is in many ways about equal to
the cabin accommodation of Atlan-
;ic liners of a few years ago, anil hi i
first and second-class provides iv
comfort that has been devised
Before the war India imported
$Gii0,000,000 worth ef commodities
a vear, of whieh Canada sent not
more than $30,000 worth. Last year
her imports were $800,000,000, of
which Canada sent $1,126,000. and
it is now expected that there wi1! be
a further increase to between "ii,-
000,000 and $5,000,000 this year.
The Canadian Pacific Railway has
arranged with a number of European countries for the emigration of
farmers and domestics whs are will-
in" to come to Canada for employment on Canadian farms. The immigrants will be brought to Canada
at the joint expense of their home
governments and the railway company.
The first successful radio experiment on a moving lonir-distancs rail-
wsv train was recently carried out
on a Canadian Pacific Railway train
from Winnipeg to Vancouver. Mr.
Rsvmond Wylie installed a receiving
Eet in the drawing ream ef the
thro'jph sleeping car, and the aerial
*»> installed by the railway electrical department. The results were
all tbat could be desired.
Seeing the train swaying ,»• tt
passed her while she was picking
berries was the reason why Mrs.
¥i-,c\ Mueller, of Branner, Ont.,
w-uld not take a rids on a train,
but after she had returned to West
Monktqn from F'mira she told W.
C. Gowan, th Canadian Pacifie
agent at the former station, that she
thoroughly eninvcl the sensatien of
travelling for the first time on a
trail which did not go fast enough
br her.
J. S. Brown, president of the Brown I
Fruit Company of Edmonton, Alta.,
returned on the Metagama last week
from a three months' visit to Europe.
He was present in Germany when the
French invaded the Ruhr, and he said |
that the feeling was very bitter between the twn races.     On the other j
hand, a Canadian, American or Britisher wns given a cordial welcome;
this beinj larsrly due to a speech ln I
which   I.loyd   George   advocated    a
compromise.   Travel in Germany, he |
said, was mrprt'lngty cheap, he having made one trip nf nearly 190 miles I
for thc sura of fifty cents in Canadian |
currency. i

"One night  my husband  came
homo looking so ill and worn out
that I thought ho would faint.    I
knew there had    been something
wrong  with him for  some   time,
but I could not get him to tell me
what it was. Finally he confessed
he was tired and sore all over.   I
made    him     go    to   bed.    Next
morning he insisted upon going to
Work although ho was   anything
hut well.    I knew that his trouble
was partly due to worry because
for some months   before   he   had
been out of  work.    This  put  us
so heavily in debt that thc grocer
and butcher  refused   to   give us
moro credit.    It was being out of
work that worried  my    husband.
He  wouldn't  eut because he  was
afraid thore would not he enough
food for  the  children.    Wo were
so poor that we had to keep tha
children from school because they
hu.l no clothes.    I knew that if I
could only net my husband strong
nnd well ugain  everything  would
bo all  right.    He  ls a carpenter
by trade and when in good hcaltlt
earns   good   wages and he   is always sober and industrious.    But
I know that it wna impossible for
any  man  to  do good work when
ho wns ill and worried.    I decided
to speak to our old family doctor,
who   had   retired    from   practice.
When   I explained   how wc were
Situated he   gladly   offered   to do
all he could to help us, although
he didn't like to interfere with tiie
new doctor's  practice.    Finally he
said, 'What, your husband needs is
a  good    tonic     and I    know  of
nothing better   than    Carnol.'    I
thought   that  if   our   old   family
doctor recommends Carnol it must
be all right.    On my way home I
got  a  bottle anil before  the first
bottle had bcen used, my husband
was  a   changed   man.    After  he
had taken  four   bottles   his   appetite   returned,   he    had    more
energy, that tired look in his eyes
disappeared and what is most important his wages have been more
than doubled and he is now superintendent   of the   wood    working
•hop in which he formerly worked
ns a carpenter.   Thanks to Carnol
our troubles are over and we are
once more a happy and contented
family."
Carnol is sold by yonr druggists
and if you can conscientiously
say, after you have tried it, that
it hasn't done you any good,
return the empty bottle to Wm
and he will refund your money.

HORSESHOES
OR
HAIRSPRINGS ?
Five dollars worth of iron  made into
horseshoes had a  market Value of ten
dollars.    Converted into needles  that
five   dollars    worth   of   iron   becomes
worth six thousand eight hundred dolts
lars, but when made into hairsprings
for  watches it is worth  two   million
dollars.
We may all be compared with that
original five dollars worth of iron—
what wc make of ourselves--how
valuable we become—-depends upon
ourselves.
5 Most of us are content to bc in thc
horseshoe class. A few reach the rank
of needles, but how rare is the man
who can be classed as a hairspring--
the man who makes thc most of every
talent ho was born with—who not
merely takes advantage of every opportunity but, Napoleon like, creates
opportunities.

He explains that this may be
from one of two causes: it may be
hereditary, going back to the early
day when small cat-like anima's attacked babies in treentops, or it
may be instinctive knowledge of

to burn down   the Outlook  schnol-

The   pa,rty   entered   the    building

who lives in the b;ick  part   of   the

.some neighboring Doakhobors,   and
thev nrrived on the scene in time  to
put out the blaze before  any  dam<
age was done.    Meanwhile the   fire
bug made his escape  unrecognized.
The incident croated a flurry of excitement,   but   up   to the  present

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tained, are: "To provide a Some and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to be loiited in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected-. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association, All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
