FRIDAY, JULY 1, 1927
Trail, B. C, June 25.—All unknown
men and suspicious characters ln this
district are being closely Interrogated by police, following the discovery
of the dead body of Charles A. Jury,
42 in his home, by his wife, shortly
after 8 o'clock Friday morning.
Awakened by the sound Of a scuffle, followed by three revolver shots,
•Irs. Jury heard footsteps of a man
running away. She reached the door
In time, to see a man, with cap pulled
down to conceal his features, vault
the verandah and disappear.
Jury lay dead on the floor near the

proved fatal. They have four children.
The victim) was a smelterman employed by the Consolidated Mining A
Smelting company here*. He had
come off shift at 2 a.m., but evidently
was ln bed and arose In response to a
knock at the door. Hla wife waa
•sleep In another room.,
It Is believed the unknown man
demanded entry and on being denied
this, hit Jury on bhe head but tailed
to knock him out.
A scuffle ensued.   Then the shots.
Inspector W. R. Dunwoody of the
Nelson detachment, provincial police,
la here investigating.
Police believe It -possible the man
may have intended to rob the occupant* of the cottage, whioh Is ln the
Oulch section at Trail. But they are
not confining themselves to this
theory.
Four members ot the Trail police
are scouring the hills. Provincial
police are watching roads and railway trains in tbe Castlegar and
Orand Forks-Greenwood district.
Jury resided here for tire last eight
years.
One hour later L. H. Jobansen,
smelter employee camping at Anna-
ble, waa aroused and found an intruder over him with a flashlight in one
-hand and a revolver in the other
hand, leaning through the flap of his
tent.
Responding to a curt order, he
handed over hla watch and $40.
P. Harrison, also camping at Amiable, was then visited, and up $1 and
his watch, saying that was all he had.
He states that ihe holdup man had a
red handkerchief over his face.
The man departed, but returned
almost Immediately and demanded
mora. Harrison then was induced to

If the three crimes were committed by the same man it suggests he ls
capable of making good time toward
the International line. Fears are expressed that he may have succeeded

Ottawa, June 22.—The listening
world Is Informed that at 10:30 ip.m.
(E.D.3.T.) of July 1 next, there will
be broadcast from CNRO (434.5 metres, Ottawa) a program unique in
the history of radio. Not only will
the program ln Itself be unique, but
the means and methods of transmission throughout Canada, and, conceivably the entire word!, will, it the
objective of the National broadcasting committee ls reached, establish a
record for tying-ln and long-distance
distribution.
The program, which is subject to
additions, and which may be prolonged well into the hours of the
morning of the second, will commence with a selection of Canadian
airs played by Perclval Price, caril-
loneur of the carillon in the Peace
Tower of Parliament 'Hill. Thereafter will follow an address by his
excellency the governor general, after
which the program will proceed as
follows:

As you enter Belgium along (iho

Ib needed to Inform you that you have
crossed the border. Though wars
lightnings still reveal their passage
amid nature's cemeteries of blasted
tree-trunks, underfoot lies the Low
Countries' infinitude of green flatness, where flying miles of sugar
beetroot, plotted as neatly as squares
ln a crossword puzzle, spell Intensive
cultivation ln seven letters—Belgium-
Industry, alike in field and factory,
Is the keynote of this amazingly compact little country. One-third larger
than Maasachusetts and with nearly
twice the population, Belgium, wlih
its 7,500,000 people, is the most
densely settled state in Europe.        '
So inconsiderable are distances in
Belgium that you cannot take a longer straightaway jaunt than 175 miles
without spilling over into Holland or
falling into the Knglish channel. Yet
the little kingdom's four-acre farms
produce per year a total products
value of 6,000,000 francs, while the
annual value of its manufactures exceeds the billion-franc mark,
The canal-reflected dream of gabled
roofs,, carved cornices, fortress-like
city gates, and little quay-to?quay
bridges which ls Bruges, welcomes
one from the Grand Place with an air-
tingling succession of early Flemish
tunes, flung abroad by 49 bronze
tongues In the old, brown belfry.
Again and again tn journeying about
Belgium   one   will   encounter these
beautiful bells.
At Mallnes  (Mechlin) you may lis

chimney. Indeed, It characterizes the
landscape of this highly industrialized
people.
Shipping and art, througout the vicissitudes of the centuries, hava been
the twin keynoes of Antwerp, the
great port on the, Scheldt Decimated
by Spanish oppression, miner afresh
by 1830's revolutlon.ong ham-pered
by trade rivals levying navigation
dues, and crippled once more between
1914 and 1919, Antwerp, nevertheless,
always rises anew from commercial
disaster.
At present sbe has "come back'
after the losses of the Wordlwar,
and ranks third among the ports of
the world In total entrances and clear
ances comibined.
Antwerp's tradition of wealth ls
evidenced by her patronage of Rubens, Vaii Dyck, Jordaens, and half a
dozen other great painters—not forgetting Matsys, who quit blacksmith-
Ing for the palette), as the legend goes,
In order to win a wife—whose native
or adopted city still teems with their
rich canvases.
Stately boulevards, rich art galleries, tangled side streets watched
over by gaudily palnteid madonnas,
flowers everywhere—even boxes of
them tmclrcling the electric light
poles—and many a humlble, war-recalling "Cafe Blighty" or "Allies' Bar"—
such are the impressions one carrk-g
away aB he leaves Antwerp.
The slgnlflc-nce of Belgiums canal
system Is best realized on the Maritime canal. With its steady stream of
60,000,000
kllometrlc tons—i.e., a unit of one
ton traveling one kilometer—^per year,
between Brussels and the sea. Motor boats give a daily fast-freight
service between Bplpium's capital
and Its Important towns, and, you

SIMPLIFIED BOOKKEEPING
A young husband, says the Argonaut, finding that his pretty but extravagant was exceeding their income, brought home a neat Httle account book and presented it to her
together with a hundred dollars.
"Now, my dear," he said, "I want
you to put down on this side what I
give you, and on the other write
down the way lt goes, and then I will
give you another supply."
A couple of weeks later he asked
for the book.
"Oh, I have kept the account all
right," saiid the wife. "See, here
it is."
On one side was inscribed, "Received from Norman, $100," and on
the page opposite, the comprehensive summary, "Spent it all."
ver Mlnjau and his wife, who, says
the tablqt ln St. Nicholas' church,
"had together one-and-thlrty children.'
It ls said that when a phalanz of 21
of the Mlnjau boys marched In a civic
procession past Charles V, and ho
was Informed that they represented
only two-thirds of the family, the
royal attention was "arrested," and
one can quite believe It.
The heart of Ghent Is the great bell,
Roland.whose vibrations are the pulse
of centuries It was cast In 1314, recast in 1659, and was known successively as the hanclocke (proclamation bell), the stuerm-clocke (storm-
of-war bell), and later named for
Charlemagne's famous paladin, with
allusion to Roland's horn, whose call
struck terror to his foemen's hearts.
Weekly archery tournaments are

the tall, wooden towers which one
sees in the countryside around Mons

BY ERWIN GREER
PICK YOUR DEALER A3
YOU DO YOUR CAR
Quality of service is not seriously
limited by amount of population, the
volume of business done by the dealer
or any other consideration, but Is
mainly built on the dealer's own
character. If he is far-sighted enough
to see that bis total maximum business for years to come depends more
on the service he gives than on any
other factor, you will find that he has
a well equipped shop, stocked with
the essential repajr parts, with com
potent help, and careful accounting
methods.
The problem Is, then, to determine
whether the dealer of the car you
are considering does give adequate
service. A glance at the shop will
tell a lot There are some Important
agencies even in the first cities of
the country that have nothing in the
way of shop equipment except a few
hand tools and two or three vises.
This is not the sort of dealer to buy
a car from.
If you ask him be will tell you that
his cars are so simple that more extensive equipment is not required, or
that the cars in his territory so rarely
give throuble that it would not pay
him to have more tools. This is non
sense. His argument*- are rtfutedb
by the facts; the three most popular
cars selling at over $2000have the
best service facilities the country
over. Adequate tool equipment is
essential to reduce the amount of labor to a minimum and to produce better work.
Every automobile repairman looks
.like an expert to the average owner,
but many of them ar not. It is a wise
precaution to buy a car from a dealer
who employs a mechanic deeply vers
ed in the mysteries of electrical equip
ment. Most electrical ailments take
an hour to find and a minute to fix,
and If the repairman Is expert enough
be may be able to eliminate the hour
I have seen cars held up for days
while the Inexpert repairman made
a futile futile search for some Iron
ble that a specialist wold have located
In a minute.
Enough motorists are truthful,
however, for you to be able to obtain
the information necessary to make a
satisfactory selection of both car and
dealer.
Some prospective buyers hesitate
because they do not care to bother
strangers, but almost any man will
be glad to stop work to talk about
his car. It is a human weakness,and
few are lnmmune from lt.
TraU, B.C., June 28.—During a coroner's Inquest here, police produced
bed sheets to show that Charles Jury
was hit by the assassin's flrst bullet
while he was getting out of bed. The
second shot bit him on the head and
subsequent shots were fired after he
had got out of bed.
That he came to his death during
the early hours of morning, June 24,
through a bullet wound ln the head,
Inflicted by some person or persons
unknown, was the   verdict returned.
Eight witnesses were called. tMrs.
Jury and her 18-year-old son told ot
hearing a scuffle, then shots.
The sbots occurred after Mrs. Jury
had spoken to her son after returning
from the kitchen. Evidence revealed
that Jury s room was almost undisturbed.
Mrs. Jury stated she saw a man
leap the verandah. He wore a dark
suit, was short in stature and bad
bis cap pulled down over bis eyes.
Neighbors testified they saw a
light iu the Jury house at 12:45 a.m.
and that the shooting occurred at
1:55 a.m. E. McRae, across the
street, heard the shots and later
heard an auto start from the street
In front of the house.
Tracks of t he slayer's boots correspond with tracks found where
two campers were held up and robbed
at Annable, south of here; one hour

Dickens had no theories about women as a sex; he had
no theories about mankind. He did not try to account
"tor Vivotonic n characters by reliance on a formula. They
iiitereated him as individuals, and the most successful u.
.its women characters are those with some heavily ut.
derlined peculiarity which enabled him to keep up an
ncessant about them, is the comment of a writer in the
Westminstr Gazette. Mrs. Nickleby and Sairey Gamp
live vividly because Dickens' imagination was working
at high pressure when he created them, and hfs exclte-
nKmt nfects his readerh. The womed about whom he
felt so intensely are human, and therefore credible; but
Dickens never worked dispassionately or far canough
away from his subject to make his womjen universal.
In creating Miss Wardle he felt the pathos ot the) lovelorn spinster. But he had to make a jest of the elopement with jingle, wtbosif rascality alone saves the scene
from complete real ty. Dickens ran away from Miss War-
die's emotional tension because was a good woman and
for women of her type to give) way to emotion was a
little improper. For with all his imaginatlon.sympathy,
and acute sensibility, D ckens could never persuade himself that women havel the ordinary feelings and failings
of humanity.

't is not .believed that thunder is caused by the inrusr-
of air into a vacuum, but by the violent heating and d a
-Integration of the air along its path, which produces a
sudden and great expansion of the same nature as an
explosion. However, this does not expla n the relative
ly long duration of the thunder; this duration ls owing
mainly to the facts (l) that the several parts of a
Streak of lightning are at different d stances from the observer, and 02) that) sound travels at the rate of about a
mile ln five seconds. The duration is also owing, in part,
to sound-reflections, or echoes.
The largest collection of finger prints in the world,

Bhe asked him to accompany her to the house of tiie village priest, where she wished to pay a frlctadly call. The
Englishman went yith her and while there the priest

yes. Two days later his regment left Malta. That
Was the Englishman s version of It. When he was

marriage was binding. ;*=!
If you desire a good looking rubber plant you must give
it good air. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. The
Watering depends upon the heat of the room. Usually
every other day is sullieient. A rubber plant will thrive
beet in a room/ that Fs light, but It should not be kept ln
the hot sun. Every two or three weeks when watering
fcdd amlmonla to the water, using one teaspoonful ammonia to one quart of water. This will kijep the plant
Irom becoming wormy. Occasionally wipe the leaves
gently with warm milk, using.a Boft cloth. This always
cleanses the leaves and acts as a food for the plants.
Thn bureau of standards at Washington says that hard
rubber may be joined by a bond of new hard rubber. A
cement ls prepared by adding one part of sulphur and
three parts of crude rubber to flfty parts of carbon bisulphide, and three purls of alcohol. Several applications
of the cement aro applied to the broken parts. These
are finally joined and held under preBBuro at a tomlpera-
ture of 1fN) degrees C, for four hours. A mixture of
equal parts of gutta percha and bitumen dissolved in carbon bisulphide' may also be used to cemont the broken
portions.
Nature presents many puzzles, and though one frequently reads about the curiosities of many of the larger
hhlmals, som*" of the lesser-known "freaks" are more in
teresting. The great ncrease in weight of animals, such
as the elephant hippopotamus, Is often recorded, but
thej privet-hawk moth increases Its weight 11,000 time*
In Its 3i2 days of feeding. Even the privet-hawk moth's
unusual growth Is surpassed by that of the goat moth,
Which ncreas Its original weight 72,000 times, though

The Spice of Life
The first mention of the name Niagara was in the
Je-suit Relation of 1641 in which it was written Ongnla-
ahra, which ls supposed to be misprint for Ongnlaahra.
The word ls of Iroquois origin and was applied by that
people to a place where Youngstown, N.Y., now stands
It was probably originally an Iroquois sentence-word
meaning "bisecte|d-bottom-land." There is nothing to the
notion that Niagara originally was an Nndian word meaning "thundering water."

The lord high steward of Scotland was a judge of the
king's household and the whole family in the royal palace was under his care. The office was held heritably
in one family, and when surnames camie into use, the
family assumed for theirs the name of their oflice,
"Steward" or ".Stuart." This was done gy Walter, son
of Alah, who was at the same time justiciar to K ng
Alexander II in 1230. The family was fresuently closely
allied to the crown and eventually succeeded to it in the
person of Robert, eldest son of Walter Steward or Stuart,
in 1371.
Britain's most noble tree—the oak—is being rapidly

Cypress haa always enjoyed a world-wide reputation for
durability. Among the ancients, a plantation ot cypress
was so highly valued that t was considered a sufficient
dowery for a daughter. Cypress doors of the ancient St.

were removed, yet they were in a state of perfect
preservation.
European merchants economize by wrapping their
merchandise in old newspapers or any other paper which
can be easily obtaned. In the little Rumanian town of
Nagyvarad (formerly Hungarian) this custom led to the
discovery of some old documents of historical importance. Students bought fruit from a street vendor and
axanmlnation of the cornucopias showed that the paper
camie- from old Hungarian documents. lOne document
contained an official account of the battle of Magenia
(fought in Italy in 1859). Another was an original decree of Franz Joseph, dated 1780, permitting the Protestants of Nagyvarad to sing their religious songs when
conducting' burial services. According to reports, the
locuments in which the fruit was sold came trom the lo-
■al archives, the Rumanian authorities having sold them
for old paper.
Poems From EasternLands
TURKEY
SPRING
From the pleasure, joy, and rapture of this hour,
In Its frame to hold its soul earth scarce hath power.
Rent its collar, like the dawning, hath the rose;.
From its heart the nightingale sighs forth its woes.
Dance the juniper and cypress like the sphere;
Filled with melody through joy all lands appear.
Gently stag the running brooks in murmurs soft;
Play lhe green and tender branches with delight,
And they shed with one accord gold, silver, bright.
Like to couriers fleet, the zephyrs speed away,
Resting ne'er a moment either night or day.
In that raid the rosebud filled with gold Its hoard,
And t he tulip with fresh musk its casket stored,
There the moon a purse of silver coin did seize;
Filled with ambergris its skirt the morning breeze-;
Won the Bun a golden) disk of ruby dye,
And with glistening pearls Its pocket filled the sky;
Those who poor were fruit and foliage attained;
All the people ot the land some trophy gained.

while the boat was poking along

there, swathed in gray, a passenger
said to the captain:
'Tt is too bad we are goin' to be
late, captain."
"W« ain't going to be late,' the
captain answered.
"But I thought," said the passenger, "that we had to tie up to this

To steal a kiss not^amlss,
Though it may lead to sorrow:'
But why become the thief of Miss,
When you caa merely borrow.
In one of his lectures delivered at the
Banff Springs Hotel, Dan Mo-
Cowan, the well-known Canadian
naturalist, tells s wonderfully interesting story concerning a wud bird
convention held in uie Canadian
Pacific Rockies during the fall of 1926.
At tbat time tbe new Banff Springs
Hotel was under construction and
large numbers of structural steel
workers were engaged in uprearing
the fabric around which a dream
palace had been evolved. There was
the loud clanging of steel as the heavy
girders were lifted and guided into
place, Winches rattled ahd engines
hissed incessantly. Above all other
sounds rose the staccato "rat-tat-
tat" of scores of riveting hammers.
Par up the Forty Mile Valley of the
Bow this sound was borne; it reechoed from cliff and crag on grey
Mount. Bundle, it shattered the
ftflmpa ,h the deep green woods that
dofftf the valleys and the mountain
sloper ,7
Tht ' --hout this extensive forested
area ai ad Banff and Lake Louise,
many woodpeckers are to be found at
all seas-ins of the year. To these
feathered foresters eame the sound
of the rivetters at work; it was interpreted by them as the noise of a host
of tree boring birds, hammering an'cl
drilling in tbe bark and timber of
Douglas Fir and Spruce. Initinctively
they hastened to the source ot' Um
sound, confident that a keen-eyed and
enterprising members of the tribe had
discovered an army of tree-infesting
grubs and that there would be a feast
for all who cared to answer the mm-'
mons broadcasted so clearly.
The Dileated Woodpecker, a large
black plumaged bird with crest of
scarlet, vivid as huntsman's coat,
flew through the woods, like a fiery
torch and caused the dim aisles to
echo with his loud and raucous cry.
Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers,
lesser birds in the ancient order of
foresters, clung to the gnarled bark
of trees snd with heads aslant,
hearkened querulously to this strange
drumming of hammers on steel.
Such an assemblage of Woodpeckers
had never before been seen in tbe
valley of the Bow. The woods seemed
alive with birds of this breed. Unlike
most conventions held at Banff, this
one could hardly be termed a success.
No doubt the birds were disallusioned
and deeply disappointed that the
nromised fast did not materialise.
Nevertheless t!*.ere must bave been
compensation in the number of
.'ai-nily re-unions made possible by the
"all of the hammers that fashioned
the framework i.i * great c*-tlo in the
scenic heart of the Rockies. THE SUN: GRAND FOBKS, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

When Noel Coward, the English

the theater.
..The theater Is an incomprehen
sive sort of thing," said he. Sometimes It's hard for a writer or an ac
tor tor to force hts way ln. Some,
times, again, It's easy.
"There was once a chap who had
written a play, and he called by appointment one afternoon to see a
manager about it. He stammered
horribly, gut of course he made no
mention o t this fact.
"Indeed, he had no opportunity to
mienton It, for as soon as be appeared the manager said:
"We'll get right down to business.
I know who you are. You know
who I am. I'm a busy man. You're
a busy man. Now.'thcn, you've got
a play wrapped up in that parcel. Sit
down in that chair and read it to me.
"So the young man read his play.
It was heavy going, ^ery heavy going; but he read it tbrough to theend.
"Then the manager said: 'I'll take
that play.' And be called his secretary.
" "Oeorge,' he said to the secretary,
'draw up a contract for thiis young
man. I'm going to take this play.
It's no good, no good at all, but lt
ought to make the audience laugh
their heads off. {Every blasted character stutters.'"

THE ARTLE88 ART
'Repartee, the "artless art," seems
really to be a gift, and be who has it
is fortunate Indeed, ln the Nineteenth century Sir Edward Sullivan
relates this bit ot sparkling conversation that passed between Cardinal
Vaughan and Dr. Adler, the chief
Jewish rabbi.
The two mien were seated next to
each other at luncheon. "Now, Dr.
Adler," said the cardinal, "when may
I have the pleasure of helping you to
some ham?'
The rabbi replied without a pause.
"At your eminence's wedding!"
It was not a rabbi but a bishop—Dr
Potter_ of New York—that once replied neatly and unhesitatingly to a
question that must have been almost
as startling as the cardinal's. A lady
had asked him why in pictures and
statues angels are always represented as women or as young men without beards or moustaches.
"Oh," replied the bishop, "everyone
knows that women naturally Inherit
the kingdom of heaven, but men get
in by a very close shave.'

case came into the high court.
The presiding judge at once tried-
to pour oil on the troubled waters
and, addressing the plaintiff, said,
"This is a trivial case. Why not settle it? You men have get to be
neighbors all your lives. Now I suppose that apart from this trespass
you consider the defendant a very
decent man?"
The plaintiff scratched his head
and hesitatingly replied, "Well, he is,
sir but he sometimes gets as drunk
as a judge."
"You mean as drunk as a lord,' remarked tbe president of the court.
"Yes, my lord," replied the plaintiff.

establish permanent flower gardens at every station
along the long line of track stretched across the continent.
In the very early days of the railroad the pioneers
were too busy attending to the task of opening up new
roads to give jnucli attention to flowers, yet even back
in tlie early days one of the C. P. It. employees produced a few varieties of flowor seed 3 in Ills own plot
and distributed Uicm amongst his friends at some of
the stations with the object of starting flower gardens'
along the line. This took place over 30 years ago,
and to-day tlio Company spends a considerable amount
producing and distributing seeds and shrubs of all
kindi to station agents along the lines. The Company
maintains a floral depaitment -with headquarters at
the Wli dsor Street Station in Montreal.
