Dr. MacLean Expressed
Himself asSa tis fied with
Educational Conditions
Here—-Liquor Stores
Hon. J.D. MacLean, minister of
education and provincial secretary,
wbb in tbe city lust Monday, and
spent a busy duy here on official
businc-s.
During tho day, accompanied by
Inspector Miller, be visited all the
schools in tbe district, including
the Doukhobor schools and be expressed himself as being satisfied
witb tbe conditions that he found at
all of tbem. At the North Fork
school there were eight Doukhobor
scholars in attendance. Until recently none of the children from the
colony have been enrolled bere.
In the evening the minister met
the mayor and the finance committee in the city ball, and scbo.il
financial matters wire gone into
very thoroughly Mr. MacLean
told the committee lhat whenever
the council or tbe school trustees
had any grievance about tbe manner in educational matters were
administered, whether affecting
taxation for school purposes or
otherwise, to make their complaint
to the government, If their claims
were just ihey would be considered
and granted. ,
Regarding a government liquor
store here, Mr. MacLean said tbat
if Grand Forks wanted one a request for it would bave to come
from tbe board of trade, tbe city
council or some other organization,
as it was not tbe policy of the government to Iorce these stores on
communities that did not want
them. Greenwood bus made a request for sucb a store, and will get
it.
THE LATE "COLONEL"
ROBERT T. LOWERY
Tbe Sarnia Canadian Observer,
recently owned and managed by VV.
M. Lowery, a brother of the late
"Col," R. T. Lowery, prints the foi
lowing brief history of the deceased
newspaperman:
Robert T. Lowery, after a lingering illness, died in Qrand Forks hos
pital on Friday, May 20.
Deceased founded the Petrolia
Topic and a fter a brief ownership left
for British Columbin, where he has
been an active newspaper owner for
nearly thirty years. During his ac
tivities in tbe west he founded seven
or eight papers, but was best known
as tbe publisher of Lowery's Claim, a
monthly publication which had a
large sale throughout the western
provinces on account of theindepen
dent manner in wbicb the editor expressed himself on public questions. -
One of his first ventures in the
west was the Kaslo Claim, wbich
came to grief in a few weeks through
a fall in silver prices and tbe failure
of John M. Burke's bank. The late
Mr. Lowery wrote the funeral address in the guise of an editorial as
follows:
"The Claim goes up tbe shaft to
day: and will be deposited in tbe
journalistic boneyard, witb the
amount of regret customary on such
occasions.
"Its career has been short, but
not altogether peaceful. Its readers
have been numerous. It has made
some friends and few enemies. The
paystreak   haying   entirely   disap
peared, we are forced to prospect
somewhere else. To the few staunch
friends who have helped us with
their money and sympathy we ex
tend our sincere thanks. To our
enemies this article will be pleasant
reading. Our suspension will enable
them to bamboozle tbe public without any fear of being molested and
consequently they will be happy.
"Four months ago tbis paper had
tbe brightest prospects of any paper
in Canada. Today everything is
changed. Such is life in the wild
and silvery west. One day, a prospective millionaire—the next nothing to live on but wind and one of
Burke's checks.
"I lieu of crape we have hung the
printing oflice towel on tbe door
knob. Turn of! the gas, ring down
the ourt.-iiu nnd exclaim, 'The play
is over, lhe fi.'g is hauled down. Tbe
Kuslo Claim is dead, extremely
dead.'"
About ten years ago deceased became stricken with stomach trouble
and had to slow down on his activities. He spent several winters in
California in search of health, but a
strenuous western life left its mark
aud specialists were of no avail to
stay th9 approach of death. The editor of the Los Angeles Mining Re
view in 1910 give a partia' history
of the late Mr. Lowery's newspaper
life and the following paragraph from
same touches the personal side of
deceased: "In the earliest days of
my mining experience I became a
contributor in a small way to the
divers and sundry Lowery publications, and in that way became well
acquainted with the 'editor and
financier,' as he called himself, lie
was then and still is an origina
writer and an original thinker, a
hater of all kinds of shams and
withal, a man of the most tender
heart and one whom I am proud to
number among my very good and
valued friends."
The late Mr. Lowery is survived
by three brothers—John A..Petrolia,
William M., Sarnio, and Samuel M.,
Port Arthur, and two sisters, Misses
Rachel M. and Emmalina M., Port
Arthur.
His remains will be interred at
Nelson, B.C.. bis favorite town and
his brother Samuel will attend tbe
funeral.
The men who will surround Bob
Lowery's grave and eee all that is
earthly of him deposited in Mother
Earth will be truo friends and some
of tht in will say "Amen" with moistened eyes as the closing scene approaches. He lived his own life and
harmed no one—kind and honest
and loved the people of the mining
country. May his soul rest in peace.

Recognizing Brood
Diseases of Bees
When a hive of bees is examined
and something is seen to be wrong
witb the brood, close observation
will usually reveal the trouble.
Tbe healthy bee grub or larva lies
curled up in its cell plump and
nearly white. If, scattered through
tbe brood nest, there are few or
many larvae that have lost their
shape and become llabby, and ap-
pear bb if they had been melted,
some turning yellowish or greyish,
it is a cas> of European foul brood
(melting brood). The remedy is to
unite tbe weak colonies and replace
tbe queens witb young Italians of
resistant strain.
When a healthy larva becomes
full grown, the cell containing it is
capped over wilh wax. If, among
the capped cells some are aeen to be
discolored or irregularly perforated.
American foul brood (ropy brood)
may be suspected aod if, on opening
tbese cells, it is found that they con
tain a coffee colored-mass that will
rope out several inches on a match
or toothpick, tbere is no question
about it. Tbe remedy for tbis disease is to shake tbe bees into a clean
hive fitted witb foundation and bury
the combs or render them into wax
disinfecting the interior of the hive
with 1 torch before it is used  again.
If larvae aie seen lying in tbe cell
stretched out nnd dead and darkened, with undamaged skin whicb
when punctured lets out a watery
curd, il is a case of sacbrojd. Nothing can be done for this disease,
whicb usually soon disappears.
Inexperienced observers are apt
to he alarmed when brood tbat
should be capped is seen to be un
covered, but this is not a recognized
disease. It may be caused by poor
ventilation, or if it runs in lines, by
wax moth larvae working on tbe
comb,
Another needlessly alarming
symptom is brood cast out of the
hive. Bees will do this when the
honey How is suddenly checked,
thus reducing the number of mouths
to be fed. Drone brood is frequently
treated tbis way. ln the north
worker brood is similarly dealt witb
after tbe first severe frost that brings
to an abropt end the heavy late
honey How that is a feature of much
of the country country.

F. Laws Disposes of
His Residence and 12
Acres of Orchard
$12,000
for
Twelve acres of E. F. Liw*' fine
orchard, togethei with the residence
and otber buildings, was sold last
Friday to W. G. Elliott, of Tugaske,
Sask., for a consideration in the
neighborhood of $12,000. The prop*
erty adjoins the southern boundary
of the city limits, and is one of the
best in the valley. Mr. Elliott, who
is a brother of Geo. W. Elliott, who
recently purchased the Andrews
orchard below the Sun orchard, will
take immediate possession of his
property. Mr. Laws and his family
will move into tbe city. The sale
was arranged by the Meggitt
agency.
News of the City
A fire broke in Jeff Davis' ware-
bo.Usa and stables in the rear of the
store about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and gave the new fire alarm
siren another opportunity to tost its
voiee. The prompt arrival of the
fire brigade made it easy work to
extinguish the Hames before much
was done. It is supposed that tbe
fire wns started by a live cigsntte,
carelessly thrown in the building or
in tbe stnbls.
The news was received in tbis
city today of the death of Mrs. W.
II. Covert at Long Beacb, Cal, She
was one of tbe oldest, if not the
oldest, white woman settlers in tbis
valley. For the past ten yenrs she
has been living at Long Ben h with
her husband. Two of her daugh-
ters, Mrs. W. T. Ross and Mis. Reed,
live in this city. Deceased bnd many
friends in this city who will sympathize witb the bereaved family.
Mrs. Roy Faulkner, of Rossland,
is visiting at the home uf Mr. and
Mrs. Frank Miller.
Alfalfa as an Eradicates
of Canadian Thistle
Some years ago wu saw a case
where alfalfa was supposed to bave
cleaned out the Canadian thistle
from the land. Wc had not had an
opportunity to observe the lund be
fore or after and remained pessimistic about such an easy method of
getting rid of this serious weed.
About five years ago we discussed
the same question with a man who
hoped to reclaim a farm by pump-
•2%, large areas of which were badly
infested with Canadian thistle. He
seeded these areas to alfalfa. Tbe
newley seeded alfalfa was clipped as
soon as higb enough, which also
clipped the thistles; this was done
three times dnring the season. Two
years later we. again visited this
farm and we were invited to find
any Canadian thistle, ond we had to
hunt among the alfalfa to find about
six very weak specimens, and today
there are no signs . of any at all.
Sever-d people are taking this method of eradicating thistles, and if
alfalfa once has a chance to get eB
tahlished and is kept clipped so as
to prevent the thistles which are well
established from smothering the
young alfalfa until they can outgrow
tbe thistle the method will succeed.
Every   farmer   who is cursed with
very  well and
impossible  on
crop—corn,
yenr rotation fits in
will make thistles
your form.
First   Year—Hoed
roots, vegetables.
Second Year—Grain crop seeded
(0 alfalfa if water is plentiful
Third Year—Seeded to alfalfa
without a nurHe crop where water is
scarce.
Fourth Year—Alfalfa.
Fifth Year—Alfalfa.
Sixth Year—Alfalfu.
Seventh Yeur—Alfalfa ploughed
just before or just after the second
cutting, kept clean all rest of summer and fall and manured for hoed
crop next year.
How far this eradication will apply to land under dry farunii.g.metb-
ods we can not say, but uuder irri
gallon we con recommend it inos
strongly, as alfulfa respondc no well
to applications of water, starts
early grows late, is a soil huilder,
in fact does everything the farmer
wants it to do. If you nie waging
war on Canadian thistle, make alfalfa do it for you, but be kind to it
while young by giving it a perfect
seed bed to germinate in, a unifoim
moisture supply, and give the plants
air by clipping tbe thistles. By the
second senson the young plants can
tnke   of themselves  nnd   will fight

As a rule, an institution that is afraid or unwilling to "carry on" on its own merits has no
bnsiness to exist. The Chautauqua apparently
seems bauble to do this. It has to get guarantees from the citizens rn the cities where it
exhibits. The most apt definition of some of
the talent at many Chautauquas is, that it is
amateurism commercialized. Of course this
estimate does not apply to all the features
at these shows. Some acts may be meritorious.
But an impression seems to prevail that
many, far too many, of the acts at these
shows are entrusted to talent of the same
standard as was exploited by the dime museums thirty years. The museums had a brief[
period of popularity, and then went out of
existence for want of patronage. If Chautauquas and the movies do not improve they will
soon follow suit and the people will return to
a sane and instructive class of dramatic art—
for which we have the highest respect. Chautauquas also came into existence about thirty
years ago. They were then free and were intended to furnish amusement and instruction
for Sunday school children and campers at
summer camps. "Since they have been com
mercialized they are subject to criticism the
same as any other business enterprise of a
public nature.
Has tlie expectation been realized? Has anything been done, except the disingenuous and
cumbersome contrivance of the league of nations, to establish an era of lasting peace and
a rule of international fairness and justice? To
ask these questions is to answer them. Sentimentally, the attitude of 'The Man in the
Street' toward Europe has gradually become
one of disillusionment and retrospective ques
tioning." Practically, he does not consider it
a justified contention, under the circumstances
ofthe case, that the loans of America to the
allies should be considered and treated as a
contribution to the common expense of the
war. He seems to discern a tendency to dis
criminate against his country in respect of
those world opportunities which its people
played no mean part in helping to win for their
comrados in arms. He does not relish the
spirit and wording of lhe "mandates," or the
controversy over the disposition ofthe former
ly German owned cables, or the dispute about
the island of Yap, etc. In order to be predisposed toward those accommodations on
America's part which are indispensable to a
satisfactory financial settlement, and toward
that comprehensive and broad gauged co
operation which the situation calls for, he will
have to become affected with the impression
of an attitude, a purpose, a spirit, and a condition in Europe, more nearly approaching than
seems to him the existing state of things,
those conceptions which he believed the American nation was aiming and aiding to realize
when it set out on its crusade to Europe in
the spring of 1917.
What the war cost France in human life is
beginning to appear in the new census. The
linal ligues have not yet been made public, but
• :nough of the departments have been canvassed to make it apparent that there are at
hast 3,000,000 fewer French people than there
..ere in 1911, and the loss may prove to be
nlmost 4,000,000. That would mean that
I ''ranee has been literally decimated. The loss
is not wholly owing to actual deaths in the
war: it is in large part caused by the shrinking birth rate that naturally followed so tre
inendoiis a mortality among the young men of
the nation.
HOW YOU CAN TELL
GENUINE ASPIRIN
Only Tablets with "Bayer Cross"
are Aspirin—No others I
There is only one Aspirin, that marked
■with the "Buyer Cross"—ull other tablets arc only acid imitations.
Genuine "Bayer Tablets of Aspirin"
have been prescribed liy physicians for
nineteen years and proved safe by millions for Pain, Headache, Neuralgia,
Colds, Rheumatism, Lumbago, Neuritis.
llundy tin boxes of 12 tablets—also
larger "Bayer" packages, can bo had
at nny drug store.   Made in Canada.
Aspirin is the trade mark (registered
in Canada), of Bayer Manufacture of
Monoaceticocidester of Salicylicacid.
^While it is well known that Aspirin
means Bayer manufacture, to assist the
public against imitations, the Tablets of
Bayer Company, Ltd., will be stamped
with their general trade mark, the
"Bayer CroBB."
The "store at your door" is the old-fashioned peddler's cart adapted -jo modern times. It
is a huge motor van fitted up like a self-help
store with room inside for eight or ten shoppers and shelves that contain all the articles
of a modern grocery. It arrives on schedule
time, stays for threo ten-minute periods in
each block and leaves on time. If you have not
fin shed your shopping at the end of ten minutes you ride to the next stop; but when you
leave the chauffeur checks up the articles in
your basket and figures the amount. The plan
where it has been tried, which is the Middle
West in the States, has so caught the housewives' fancy that more than a thousand
"stores" are building for this year's business.
Throe interesting craft havo recently been
launched, one at Lunenburg, Nova Scdtia, one
at Essex, Massachusetts, and one at East
I Sooth bay, Maine. The first two are the fishing boats that have been built to compete next
.'•ill for the championship of the North American seas. The Canadian boat is named Biue-
nose; the Yankee champion, Plymouth. Both
s hooners are now in actual service on the
Banks. The races, probably to be held in Oc-
i"bcr, will attract world wide attention. The
third vessel referred to is the Bowdoin, a snug
l:ttie craft that Dr. Donald B.'MacMillan, the
Arctic explorer, has iiad built for him to meet
I lie peculiar needs of the expedition he is to
make this summer to the north. He is to sal
fiom Boston un July 5, and will try to take
his little ship through Fury and Hecla Strait
—die real Northwest Passage—where no ves-
sel has yet heen able to go ou account of the
("instant obstruction of tho ice. He means
also to explore the uncharted western coast of
Baffin Land, nearly a thousand miles long.
Tlie Bowdoin has a curious egg-shaped bot-
i 'ii that, it i.s bejicved, will cause the vessel
lo be pushed up by the ice flocsinstead of being
crushed by them. The hull is planked with an
'i iter belt of green heart, which has almost the
li irdness of iron with thc resilience of timber.
The voyage aims at no sensational ends, but it
will probably result iu a real additioa to oui
geographical, geological and faunal knowledge
Otto H. Kahn, the "Man in the Street" of
the London Times, in a recent issue of that
paper, gave his views on war debts and other
matters. "American went into the war wholly
of her own free will," he says. "The spoils,
and the only spoils, which America asked for
and promised herself, was to uproot thc poison
growth of Piussianism, to make an end of war
as far as hhmanly possible, and to bring about
a finer, worthier and nobler state of the world.
" The war-time shipbuilding programs have
given the world far more tonage than it had
in 1914, but the freight to be moved is only
about two-thirds as much as it was before the
war. The cost of operation has increased, rates
have recently decreased, and a great many
ships are out of commission. The depression
of ocean shipping is so great that any change
must be for the better.
Holiday time is approaching and already
some people are getting their tents and canoes
and tackle for a trip in the woods. This open
life in the forest is a form of recreation in regard to which Canadians are especially privi-
ledged, and it|is a particularly valuable and
health promoting form in these days, when so
many people live in crowded cities. Camping
in thc woods will doubtless increase in Canada
from year to year, and so long as campers are
careful with fire their presence doos the forest
no harm. It has been noticed, however, in
many quarters, that too often in the past tho
trail of the camper has been marked by forest
fires. If during the coming season every camper determines that neither from the camp fire
nor rrom his pipe will he permit fire to escape
into the forest, a great stride forward will be
made in forest protection. Let all unite in pre-]
serving the great natural resources of Canada.

Germany has paid the allies $200,000,000
and thereby met the first clause of the recent
allied ultimatum. The money was paid over
to the allied reparation commission without
ceremony. L>r. Wilhelm Mayer, German ambassador in Paris, carrying the money in a
suitcase unaccompanied by a guard, met the
commission and took its receipt. It was the
biggest single financial transaction since the
war. The money was in the form of twenty
gold bonds of $10,000,000 each. The paper
bore the endorsement of four Berman banks.
They were brought to Paris by couriers. The

No housewife in America ia so
Independent of the price of coal and
oil as the habitant woman of Quebec,
with an out-of-door briek oven at
her beck and call.
These roadside-ovens. — and nobody knows ..exactly what whim or
fancy possessed the Quebecquoia
mind for carrying his baking* apparatus so far from home, unless it was
fear of tbe roaring fire which must
be set up in order to bake uie large
quantity of bread necessary to fill
the many mouths of the grande
famille,—are not only landmarks in
Quebec but indications of the habitant housewife's hospitality. They

Quebec Is the land of home-made
bread." Mais oui. "Kntrez vous.
For a mere song Madame will cut
you some thick slices and bring out
a pitcher of milk." Oui, the grand
oven is undoubtedly the symbol of
Quebec! There is a friendly look
about these old wayside ovens which
arises out of the fact that they are
made by hand and fit in perfectly
with the landscape and the scheme
of life in general obtaining in this
province, so pre-eminently the land
of the home-made.
In many months of tramping in
Quebec we have encountered scores
of these ovens. But because they
are home-made, each one is different. Each architect builds to suit
his own'fancy or else to come in to
the possibilities as to shape and size
contained in the material Bt hand.
Leaks are overcome with smudges
of plastei and added coats of white-
waak, till tha oven uf ten resembUa

"little bread" of France, nor yet its
"yardstick" just a four or five
pound loaf that will eut tha generous slice that the child at play, or
garcon helping with the hay, finds
satisfaction in.
These ovens along the Quebec
roadside stand for two important
factors in our national life. They
stand for rural life, for farm life
and the development of the country
parts. And they stand for family-
life without which attempts at rum
development have proved vain. The
women of Quebec are among tha
most hard working women in Canada and among the most contented.
Given a Httle house with a curved
roof, a tiny balcony and an out-of-
door oven by the roadside, your habitant woman asks nothing more St
life except a host of children to ent
her bread. Every day may be "-baking day" for all she cares with grain
growing in her own fields, for flow,
and an oven of character that caa

DUNL0£
Means BIGMHeagfi,
Dunlop Tires, Both Cord and Fabric Construction,
are Giving Phenomenal Results.
Big Tire Mileage is here to stay. Just as we predicted in 1912 that the Anti-Skid Tire
would become standard, so we now predict that Big Tire Mileage will be among the things
every motorist will consistently expect from now on.
— •
The tire manufacturer who has to apologize for "short life" in his product will be auto*
matically eliminated. Cord Tire construction made possible the coming of a tire that refuses
to quit until many thousands of miles have been clicked off. The Cord Tire is now universally accepted as the master choice.       ,.
And Dunlop Cord Tire is now the most popular. "Dunlop" is at top form, but don't
forget that while we are turning out Cord Tires — "Traction" or "Ribbed' — which seem
almost uncanny in their ruggedness, that a great number of motorists still use Fabric Tires.
These motorists wanted more mileage than Fabric Tires wore usually expected to give. That
set us thinking. We wondered wny certain Cord Tire principles could not be applied to
Fabric Tires.
We experimented and were amazed at the find. It
was that we could at one sweep add 20% more mileage
to Dunlop Fabric Tires and make them last longer than
Fabric Tires were ever known tp last. Result: Dunlop
"Cord"-built Fabric Tires are giving some other makes
of Cord Tires a run for their money at, of course, much
lower first costs.
Dunlop Cord Tires are outdistancing any other Cord Tire made, no matter at what
price the tire sells. The stories told here prove all we claim. We have hundreds more like
them. Note the remarkable distances covered and the splendid average for all parts of
Canada on all makes of cars.

Etiquette for Men
■■ ..
On the Street
If a lady ahead of you drops her
handkerchief do not follow her two
blocks before informing ber of her
loss, as she may ask you to return
witb her and help her find it.
If she wants you to wait with her
until some gentleman confes along
who'll pick up the handk rebief for
her, grant her this request.
If you see a lady standing in the
corner of a building tying ber shoelace do not rush up to her and ask
if you can be of any assistance.
Do not pat the young miss ahead
of you on the shoulder and ask her
if she iB on her way to s.hool. Owing to the short dresses in vogue
now always look a female in the
face firat; it might be your grandmother.
If you happen to slrike up a
friendship with a strange young
lady in the park do not tell her too
much about your automobiles,
yncbts, etc, This may cause her to
say to yon, "Ob, you are a traveling
salesman?''
Do not become playfnl in going
tbrough revolving doors by trying
to give the lady ahead of you a free
ride. Maybe her husband will be
following, ahd he may give you a
free ride, too—but not in a revolving door.
If you are in the habit of turning
corners sharp and fast do it with
your head down. This will prevent
anyone coming in the opposite direction from sticking their umbrella
or' cane iri ydrit eye.

With trade reviving, every reliance may
be placed on the telephone, which is such a
principal factor in industrial development.
British Columbia is particularly fortunate in
that telephone lines radiate from the principal
cities to all points, so that instant means of
communication are always available.
The duplicate submarine between Point
Grey and Nanaimo was laid this month,
doubling the facilities for telephoning between the mainland and Vancouver Island.
New long distance lines have been built on
Vancouver Island and throughout the lower
Fraser Valley, both north and south of the
river. Very few applications are unfilled be-
canse of lack of facilities,so that thc telephone,
always taken for granted, will not fail you.

A Dangerous Practice
A matter of vital concern to all
