Gossitt Predicts Influx of
Men With Means-B. G.
Apples Made a Wonderful Showing
Vernon, De ember 30.—The wonders of and tbe advantages aocruing
to Canada, particalarly to British
Columbia, as a result of the exhibit
tion at Wembley, were related by
F. B. CjBaitt to about 125 men in
Vernon club, hat Saturday evening.
Tbe prediction waa msde that tbere
will   be a large influx of men witb
'means seeking profitable investment,
aDd the fact staled tbat about
90 per cent of tbe  inquiries   made
'had particular reference to British
Columbia. Mr. Coss tt bad advised
tbose of bis bearers who had not
visited tbe old country to do so, but
before going to know tbeir Canada,
as most astounding questio usare
asked concerning moat parts of the
Dominion. Tbe Canada building at
Wembley and tbe apple exhibit ex*
cited most favorable comment from
the thousands of visitors wbo daily
thronged tbe exhibition, and compared very favorably with tbe sbow,
ing made by otber parts'of the empire. The methods employed hy
Cadada in tbe distribution of literature was a marked improvement to
those of other dominions. Thousands
of well behav d sehool cbildten
thronged tbe buildings daily and to
the teachers accompanying them
was given literature for the children
to study and to answer questions.
In tbis way it is expected to disss
geminate facts,
Vice-President A. B. Godfrey sd.
corned F, B, Co.-.?iit once ngaio to
the club and to Vern *n. He said
Vernon was exceedingly proud tbat
the governn.t-nt bad selected ,  \c.l
' non man, particularly one sn well
fitted foi the post to act as I) unin-
ion fruit representative at the Empire
Sbow. He congratulated the club on
being able to secure tbe attendance
of Mr. Cossitt, who hnd many engagements tn address audiences both
bere and at other poinls, Mr. Godfrey announced that nt the conclu
sion of the ; ddre«s an opportunity
would be nffnrded nny one who
wished to ask questions.
It was about six mouths sgo on a
Saturday nigbt that Mr. and Mrs.
Cossitt motored toSicsmous to catch
the eastbound train for tbe seaboard
enroute to lbe old country. The
ship's company, was one big happy
fadlily. The fea wnecalm,in marked
contrast to tbeir return voyage,
wbmi tbey were forced to anchor all
night anda II day. Tbey landed at
Liverpool at 3 o'clock, and at 4:45
were oo their stay to London, still
i arveling at the completeness of tbe
arrangements and tbe dispatch.
Mr Cossitt stated bc was not disappointed witb anything be saw in
the old country. Those of us who
have not been over have a lot to see
and Bhould go over,but before going
see Canada first, as tbe people over
tbere are very anxious to know
about Canada. At a banquet Mr.
Cossif was informed tbat tbe lady
uext to bim was a neighbor. To
bis questions, tbe lady replied tbat
sbe was from Virginia, just 6000
miles from British Columbia. Tbe
old country people bave no grasp of
tbe distances. It takes five days to
cross Canada, but only one and one
half d *ys to make the longest journey
oo that tight little island.
The Caoada building was tbe out,
standing one at tbe exhibition at
Wembley. All the prrincipal traffic
passed the door, with the Canadiun
National railway and Canadian Pacific railway buildings light at hand.
Must Control
Radio Stations
There will be no licenses
issued for the operation of
radio broadcasting stations in
the United .States by the department ol commerce, except.in emergency cases, until
congress has regulated radio.
In the cases where thi depart
ment has agreed to the installation of new stations and
owners have invested in a
considerable amount of money
on this assurance of the department those stations will
be Siven official wave iengths.
This action on the part of the
department of commerce has
become absolutely necessary
and will no doubt result in
the lessening of interference
and will give to the listener
a better reception. It is acknowledged by the great majority of radio experts that the
time has come- when* the
government must do some
thing in the matte-- of regulat
ing radio activities.

Patience Pays
"There are only a few investors," says John Moody
in the Forbes Magazine, "who
seem to have the patience and
the courege to resist the
temptation of investing their
money at the wrong time.
They appear to think that if
one waits before investing,
worthless opportunities will
su-iely slip by and that they
will have lost their chance to
get the best out of their capital.
"The investment market
will always be with us, and
new opportunities for wise
investment come along just as
fast as old opportunities disappear.

In many cities a constant stream of money
is flowing out to invest iu business proposi
tions a long way from home. And yet if you
want to put up houses in such places, or if
people with good business propositions wish
to borrow funds, they frequently can't secure
the needed funds. A good deal of this money
sent away to a distance is lost. An investment
a thousand or more miles away may look
very good, but it often happens that the people
in that immediate neighborhood who are in a
position to find out all about it, do not regard
it so highly. There are plenty of chances to
invest money in and around Grand Forks.
Municipal debentures, mortgages on the
homes, farms, and business buildings of this

are some of the best ways for home investment, and they are as good as can be ;: found

"The whole world is talking English," writes
Dr. Van Rossem in The Hague Post, after a
tonr through the five continents. "You land
in the Ftench colonies in Cochin-China and
iftstead of 'bonjour' you hear 'good morning.'
You are introduced in a French club in Madagascar and instead of 'enchan'e' you are wel-
cjmed with the words 'how do you do?'
I found that only one clerk spoke French in
the French colony of Rich la-Mer in the Pacific. It's the same thing in China and India
And what is the reason?" he asks. "The ships
aro English, the money is in American hands;
customs officers, military attaches, legation
officials, everybody speaks English.'- There is
another reason—the French official in the
colonies doetn't care a rap about the whole
colonial business. He counts the days when
ho will again stroll on the Boulevard des Ca-
piicins. And there is the well-known English
attitude. An Englishman arrives in Corfu or
iin an island ia the South seas and he says:
'Henceforth everybody will have to speak
English; I will not understand another language." The people might refuse, but pretty
.soon somebody begins to say "good by" when
he sbould say "good morning," and the Englishman has won out again.
We are not so much interested in what

Whereas the world is just beginning to use
alabaster for electric lighting, the Egyptians
3275 years ago made even finer alabaster
lamps than are produced today. Howard Carter, aco discoverer of Tutankhamen's tomb,
said at London. Mr. Carter made known
that, in finding many of these lamps in the
tomb, }he secret of how the Egyptians illuminated their homes was releaved. The lamps
were executed in beautiful designs in translucent alabaster, and one of them stood about
three feet in height, with a large central cnp.
There was no decoration on the exterior or

Thirty five years ago Mrs. Fondella Wilds,
Dover, Del., received a cheque for $3.10 for

Between now and next spring more than
39,000,000 trees will have been planted in
Great Britain. This is the program arranged
for the planting season by the forestry com
missiou, which has already been engaged for
five years in the work of restoring the forests
of England, Wales and Scotland. Since it
began its work, the commission has planted
52,500 acres and assisted local authorities ane
priv-Bte owners to plant another 50,000 acres.
This has resulted in 184,000,000 trees being
planted. The program.spread over ten years,
provides for the planting of 250,000 acres
with 450,000,000 trees. Most trees planted
consist of different varieties of fir and spruce

Poems From Other Lands
Against Listening to Slander
Like the blueflies buzzing round.
And on the fences lighting,
Are the sons of slander found,
Who never cease tlieir biting,
O thou happy, courteous king,
To the winds their slanders fling.
Buzzing round the blueflies hear,
About the jujubes flocking!
So the slanderers appear,
Whose lalumnies are shocking.
By no law or order bound,
All the kingdom they oonfonnd.
How they buzz, those odions flies,
Upon the hazels clust'ringl
And as odious are the lies
Of those slanderers blust'ring.
Hatred stirred between us two
Shows the evil they oan do.

time In history.
Five peaks in the Canadian Rockies have just been conquered for the first time by three Harvard and Hotchkiss students who were accompanied by their Swiss
guides. The students who climbed and named the new
peaks in the famous Columbia ice field are Osgood Field,
Frederick Field and Lemond Harris of Boston. They
were led by the noted Canadian Pacific Railway guide
Edward Fuez, the oldest guide in point of service in the
Canadian rockies. Two of the newly conquered peaks
have been named Mount Harvard and Mount Hotchkiss
•iter the two American universities.
The party made five first ascents including the hitherto
unconquered Mount Patterson, 10,400 feet, Mount Sir
James Outram 10,700 feet, the South Twin, 10.60C feet
and the unnamed peaks, Havard and Hotchkiss. Besides
all this they discovered a new route to the top of the
second highest peak in the Rockies, Mount Columbia,
12,000 feet, which was made in a return journey of
twenty-three hqurs. The aim of the exploring party, to
conquer the South Twin, was successfully attained.
The Field-Harris party left Lake Louise five weeks ago
accompanied by two guides, five packers and nineteen
boneo, and travelled 200 miles into the Columbia ice

terrific winds from tlie ice fields and once they were
forced to halt a day at Mistayah lake in order to make
rafts with which to get their horses across. Hero, at the
foot of Mount Patterson, they put Up a bivouac camp and
accompanied by the weird howling of the wild ictrwinds ol
this district spent most of their night throbbing a ukelele
and singing warm southern songs.
Lemonde Harris had his own Swiss guide with him,
Joseph Biner who has guided him for many years in thc
Swiss Alps. Edward Fuez who has been guiding in the
Canadian Rockies since 1903 was the man who successfully manouveTed this valuable expedition. Tiie greatest
novelty of the trip, he stated on his return, was the
meeting of fourteen American girls on the lonely forks ol
the North Saskatchewan River, who were travelling alone
with their packers. The girls insisted that the party stop
off for dinner with them that night, following which a
note of civilization was added to their wild northern
environment by the sound of the Oke'.ele and the swisli
