who do their home work faithfully dont fail at examinations at

never" known a child that was in-

know many who haye been injured permanently by idleness.
It is not likely that there is a
normal child at school who could
not do the_ assigned homework in
an hour or two hours, if this
work has' been done faithfully
from the beginning. And the
children are much better doing it
than being idle. It is idleness
that kills.    .
New Minister of Railway
The Hon. Dr. MacLean is receiving the congratulations of bis
numerous friends and Bupporters in
this riding on his appointment as
Minister of Kail ways. This portfolio entails the administration of
the P. G. E. Railway and all its
kindred problems. The Hon. Dr.
MaeLean will retain the provincial
secretaryship and head of the
educational department.
Last week Premier Oliver issued
the following statement:
"I have tendered, and His
Honor the administrator has accepted, my resignation as minister
of railways. I have recommended
Hon. Dr. MacLean as my successor
and he has been sworn in.
"My reason for resigning the
position are that ~I have much
more work than I could do and I
was getting out of touch with
much important government work.
I intend to devote more time to
visiting different parts of the province and to study provincial requirements.
"I think Hon. Dr. MacLean has
made a splendid success of his ad.
ministration of the office of pro
vincial secretary and minister of
education, and I feel sure that he
will do all that is possible towards
improving conditions on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, which
though not strictly departmental
matter, is undoubtedly the greatest problem at the present time."

W. O. Miller, divisional superintendent, C. Martin, district

a tour of" inspection of right
of way and bridges. Mr, Fairbairn is an old-timer of Greenwood having resided hrce ia the

daughter who was born in Ana-

When a child starts dreaming

he-is beautiful in his - innocence.
Floating around him everywhere

It is a pity to spoil all that lov-
liness with tbe taint' and Hastiness of the underworld. Yet we
have little boys at school who
can scarcely talk without swearing,- or using language which is
not clean. The parents are to
blame for this deplorable condition. What is the teacher to do
with the little swearers? - It is
theparents that should be punished. Yet schools are for children, and it is the children who
have to be moulded into worthy
characters.
Can women keep a secret?
The Ladies Aid have given a
definite yea in answer to this old
old question. More " than three
weeks ago they planned to have
a surprise party at the home of
Rev. aud Mrs. Walkinshaw and
although Mrs. Walkinshaw was
present af meetings bf the Aid,
never a whisper reached her of
the intention of her fellow
"Aiders". The "Aiders;"prevented by the absence of Mr. W., were
on Tuesday evening of this week
at last permitted to become jolly
"R-Aiders." About 8 p.m. despite the rain, they foregathered
in the vicinity of the manse? on
Kimberley Ave., each one laden
with good "things" both for
immediate consumption and to
leave as choice reminders of their
visit., The surprising was complete and a happy evening was
spent. The party left about
10,30 .thoroughly satisfied with
the success of the raid.
-' During the fall smart  people
are beginning to debate  whether
Shakespeare or the man who in-
I vented roast  beef  had done  the
[most  for   England.    This   is   a
real subject for  a real debating
club.      Unquestionably     white
bread and roast' beef   have led
the civilization of  the world for
many a long day.    For  the  lack
of roast beef  and white   bread
Russia made-a fool of herself and
for the lack  of  the spirit of a
Shakespeare, Germany  fell from
her ,estateV    In    the    lore    of
Shakespeare there is wisdom and
knowledge that _has shown _ men
the way in the  difficult path of
civilization,  and  roast beef has
given men the energy to follow
the path far in  spite  of its difficulties.
The long dark nights are here
once more. It is in the darkness
that the beasts of prey prowl,
and the villan executes his wicked
deeds. So all down through the
ages from the dawn of civilization men have been afraid of the
dark. So'great indeed has been
this fear that the blessings and
comfort of the dark have "received ' but little attention.
Social intercourse springs into
life at .night. It is then that
music is heard aad songs float
upon.the air.' But the fear of
the dark kept men from fully appreciating these blessings ,<of the
night. We dont need sunlight
all the time. We need the dark
for the knitting of kindred souls
and the weaving of fairy tales.
We will have plenty of darkness
before the spring comes round
again.

Police Post
For Far North
Government to Continue Development
Campaign in Canada Hinterland
A formal report has been issued by
ihe Interior Department on the opera-
lions this summer of a (.ioverninent
party which went by ihe steamer Arc-
lie to establish Canadian sovereignity
over the islands north oi'-ihe mainland
of Canada.
Since J910, practically no attention
had been paid officially to this northern empire. Authority was granted
last year for an expedition to re-assert
sovereignity, and especially to establish police posts, post offices and ctu-
loms house at certain central points.
The expedition was delayed till this
year, however, with Captain Bernier
as sailing master. A party of nine
members of the Mounted Police, under
Inspector Wilcox, went along. The
report gives an account of the cruise
and the points visited. The practical
results are the establishment of two
new post offices ln the far north, Craig
Harbor on Ellesmere Island, and Pond-
quis Inlet in Baffin Island, the former
ihe most northerly post office In the
world and only S50 miles froni the
pole. The R.C.M.P. party was divided between the two posts. It is the
intention of the Government to establish additional posts from year to
year. The reports states that the
Greenland Eskimos are far ahead of
their Canadian cousins, Baffin Land
having schools, native newspapers,
etc. The work of the Danish Government among them is referred to as
an object lesson and an incentive to
do something for the Canadian
-Eskimos.

Germany Is Rapidly
Regaining Sea Trade
All Pre-War Shipping Routes Have
Been Re-established
The National Merchant Marine Association has announced that Germany
is developing its merchant marine at
a rate that bids fair to restore it before long to its pre-war position, when
it was second only to that of Great
Britain.
Stripped of all its desirable steam
sea-going tonnage by the peace terms,
Germany a year ago had managed to
assemble slightly more 'than 600,000
gross tons. Today German tonnage
is close to 2,000,000 tons, and well on
the way toward the pre-war figure of
0,000,000 tons.
During the calendar year 1919 the
value of imports and exports carried
in German ships entering and clearing American ports aggregated $131,-
000. For Uie calendar year 1920 the
value was ?9,GS5,000 and for the calendar year 1921 it exceeded $17,000,000.
For fhe fiscal year 1922 German ships
carried imports and exports valued at
$���1-1,119,000.
"Not only has Germany increased
her tonnage vastly aud her carrying
trade as well," says the association,
"but she has re-established every one
of her pre-war shipping routes. As a
striking example of German ne-enter-
ing sea trade, the resumption of Australian business is illuminating. Australia's Trading With thc Enemy Act
expired at: midnight, July 31 last.
Within a few minutes signals came
from a German-Australian liner off the
port of Sydney and at daybreak, August 1, she made the harbor.
"Financial statements of all the
German shipping companies for 1921
show .substantial profits. The companies have in banks amounts more
than equalling their capital stocks and
more than two and a half billion
marks are available for new ships. It
is true that just now many of Germany's trade services are maintained
by old vessels salvaged from the war,
or bought since the armistice, but the
shipbuilding programme fostered by
the Government and by Hugo Stinnes,
Germany's commercial giant, calls
for only the most economical and
up-to-date craft."

The  Plain Truth
A lot of newspaper correspondents
are asking each other: Does ''Truth
Pay?    ".
As a matter of fact, it does, but
whether it does or not is beside the
question. The man who will only do
right when it pays him is a moral
pauper, and people will not even lend
him their ears if the cannot trust his
word. Truth is one of the few things
none Is ever too poor to give away, or
ever so rich that he can keep it back
without losing credit.

nearer to the Fairv. .��� "      .       .    ,
"Surely, lazy, sleepy Lorykins doesn't remind you of a Unckauee.
Pimzie grinned mischievously. ,.. ,  . ,._,,,
Stella didn't answer this question! Shc thought' it best not to.as you
know, she hates to hurt anyone's feelings, and .after all, poor little L��U��;"��
cannot verv well help being sleepy most of tho time. So she turned liom
Pimzie to Snookums and answered his question with a nod.
"Tell us all about them," he begged.     "What do they look like?
"Chickadees," began Stella, "are about an inch smaller than a. Spanow,
which would make them five inches long. They have black necks, t��roats
and crowns. White cheeks that look as though they run down into-a sou
of collar. Their wings.and tails are gray with white edgings, while tlie rest
of them is a dull white. ,. This doesn't sound as though they were as good
looking as thev really are, for they are awfully pretty little things; but the
prettiest thing about them is their sweet, cheerful disposition.^ _ 1 hey are
always chirping their merry call, which sounds like this (the Jbairy pursed
up her tiny lips,to imitate it): Chickadee-dee-dee-dee." _
"Oh," exclaimed Kinkajou, "that's how they get their name, isnt il{
Stella nodded and continued: "Most birds leave for warm countries in
thc cool days of autumn, but not so the Chickadee. It stays throughout the
snow and dreariness of winter, as though it feels that its jolly little presence
helps to make things a bit more gay���and it does! And it is at its very gayest in a snowstorm. I am sure that if Chickadees could they would play
snowball and pelt each other!"
"How do they nest?" asked Lorykins, whose idea of a snowstorm would
be to get out of it and into some warm, comfortable place.
"Thev hollow out a snug hole in a tree trunk," the Fairy answered and
ihen, suddenlv thinking of something that amused her, she smilingly added:
"But they are so clever that they often save themselves this trouble by taking
over a deserted old home of some Woodpecker or Nuthatch. Once I found
two Chickadees keeping house very happily in a Squirrel's old hole, for it
was just the kind of one that they wanted and had been hunting for."
"How about the Squirrel?"" asked Pimzie. "Surely a teenie-weenie
Chickadee couldn't rout a Squirrel from its home."
"No; you're quite right; but in this particular case the poor little Squirrel
had been killed by a thoughtless, cruel boy who had broken its leg by shooting it with a toy gun.    The Squirrel struggled to reach its home, but couldn't,
and  it  died  from   pain  and
starvation among the higher
roots of a big Oak."
"You must know," she went
on after a pause, "that besides making the world a gayer place iu Chickadee is real-
lv a'very useful little citizen."
"How?"    ,
"I once told you all about
the   Canker   Worm,"   Stella
said, "and.how quickly it can

British Harbor Progress
Suction Elevator Greatly Facilitates
Handling o'f Grain
An engineering visitor from the
United States to Great Britain recently paid his testimonial to the excellence of the modern plant installed at
British ports for the handling of coal
and of ships' cargoes in general. Thc
high standard of efficiency thus indicated is being shown in connection
with the discharging and storing of
grain. The Clyde, for example, now
possesses one of thc finest granaries,
and there was recently installed a
pneumatic suction grain elevator
which has a capacity of one hundred
tons of grain per hour. By means of
this plant the grain is sucked up from
the hold of the vessel and discharged
direct into the store.

"nothing to speak of" that you will
hardly believe there are sheep in some
parts af the world -with tails which
weigh as much as forty to eighty
pounds.
These "fat-tailed" sheep are found
in Northern India and Egypt. The
tail is considered a great delicacy, and
the Arabs cut 'it in slices and fry it,
but ^someone who tasted this delicacy
said it was very much like fried tallow. In Shanghai there is a breed of
sheep which has no external ears, and
neither sex has any horns.   ���

Government
CANADA'S-FOREIGN TRADE
WESTERN-EDITORS
London.���After occupying the office
oi Prime Minister through seven of
the most critical years of British history���three years'" of war and four
years of reconstruction���David Lloyd
George went into the wilderness today.
This was the description in his Manchester speech of his position if the
Unionist, wing of his followers should
desert him. Unionist withdrawal
from the Coalition was decided upon
by the meeting which Austen Chamberlain had called at the Carlton Club,
and which .was attended by lhe Coalition members of the House ^of Commons and a handful of lorcls who were
enrolled in the cabinet.
Tlie -vole was ISO to 87 against, thc
Chamberlain policy of pledging the
parly to "sustain the Coalition, and in
favor of a general election lo confirm
its course. - The meeting was followed by a succession^ of swift events
which carried-the Coalition Government into .utter darkness.
Andrew Bonar Law will put on the
Prime Minister's mantle for a short
term of office. The King summoned
him to Buckingham Palace and invited him to form a new government,
which Mr. Bonar Law wiil undertake,
although the state_of his health, which
compelled him to withdraw from public life a few months ago, makes it a
risky venture. Before Mr. Bonar
Law can formally accept the Premiership, however, a meeting of the Unionist party,must'be held-to elect a new
leader to carry out the policy to b<;

be held within ;* few days, when Mr.

HAS EXTENSIVE EXCHANGE WITH
ASIA AND SOUTH AMERICA
Ottawa.���-Canada has "a commercial
exchange with Asia, including Japan,
but excluding Russian and Turkish
Asia, worth.J43,000,000 a year, 'according lo unrevised figures of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics." With
Oceania, the Dominion does business
to. the extent oi: $20,000,000 a year,
while with Mexico and the countries
of South America bordering on the
Pacific her trade is valued at $14,000,-
000 a year. In the aggregate this
trade is about evenly divided between
imports and exports.   _
With Asia, the two accounts' almost
balance; Oceania sells Canada $5,000,-
000 worth of goods and takes $15,000,-
000 of ours, but Mexico and the west
coast of South America sent Canada
$11,700,000 worth a year and lake only
$2,200,000.
The whole subject of trans-Pacific
trade will be gone into by the Pan-
Pacific Commercial Conference which
will open at Honolulu, October 25.

Trad.e and Commerce, will represent

INTER-IMPERIAL MIGRATION AS A
REMEDY FOR CONGESTION IN BRITAIN
London. ��� Inter-imperial migration
had a prominent place in the discussion at the international conference on
the re-affirmation of the world's'moral
ideals/held in Caxton Hall, Westminster. Lord? Parmoor, presiding,
referred the widespread irregularity
of sex relations, and Sir Joseph
.Ward, High Commissioner for Aus-
lralia��.in London, expressed the opinion lhat emigration within the empire
was itself7 one of the fundamental
. remedies. - ' ..
Colonel L. C. Amery, Secretary of
the Board of Admiralty, said it was a
mistaken idea that migration meant
a weakening of "the/"population in
Britain, and possibly a weakening ot
its resources. Migration meant an
increase*' of population and prosperity
for the race.   In the immediate con
dition of Great Britain .faced by urgent financial problems of congestion
and growth of population in excess bf
Increased building and social remedies
from the point of view of social welfare,it was immensely desirable that
the immediate pVoblem .should be
eased by migration to another part of
the empire.
One .unfortunate consequence of undirected, emigration was the excess of
men going out of the country over women. It was important to encourage
the emigration of women, but this required more care than the migration
of men. Dealing with the importance
of encouraging" the migration of the
young, Colonel Amery suggested that
much might be done in that direction
by sending but.parties.of Boy Scouts,
under trustworthy scoutmasters, to
learn farming. ������'-_'

vember 11 to deal with the Irish question or whether general elections
would be held immediately, and lhe
Irish legislation left to the new Parliament. Either plan would be practicable, the only point being that ratification of the Irish treaty must be affected before December 6.
Mr. Lloyd George, In a message sent
to William Cosgravc, President of the
Dail Eireann, has removed any fear
of opposition from him in his new
position as leader of the Opposition in
Parliament. The Marquis of Salisbury, on behalf of.the "die hards," has
made a similar promise, so there is
no party in the House of Commons
that is likely to offer any hindrance
io carrying of the Irish treaty into effect.
Mr. Lloyd George, who during the
war split the Liberal party into two
sections, has' now done the same thing
by the Unionist partyV Thus, instead
of the two original parties there now
are four, with thc Labor party making
the fifth. There will no longer b'e an
Irish party, which for so many years,
during theNgreat home rule agitation
��was able to dominate the Westminster
Parliament by throwing its 70 members to whichever side it chose. With
the five separate parlies, it is clear
that no single party can. form a big
enough bloc to carry on a Government
unaided by further, alliances. It has
to "be remembered that the whole of
the election machinery and the funds
of the Conservative party belong to
the rebellious Younger section of the
group.
Mr. Lloyd George is credited with
intentions to  create a Centre'<; party.
This  would necessitate  the  creation
also of new    parly   machinery   and
parly  funds,  for the  former Premier
has no such funds or   machinery'  at.
j present at his disposal.
'    No-general election for many years,
has presented problems   whose   solution   is   so   difficult lo forecast.   One
of the weekly reviews say's, that it will
turn to the simple question of for and
against' Lloyd George,  and therefore
will b'e a purely personal contest.

handling and mixing of grain consigned to them as "held" grain in a private terminal elevator, with a further
proviso lhat such contract "may, if desired, bc in thc form of a warehouse

It was explained that under this

grade as at original inspection."

Buy a Poppy
With a view to relieving distress
among returned men during the
winter the G-. W. V. A. will again
this year hold a nation wide poppy
sale on Armistice Day. The flowers of remembrance will be sold
in all cities and towns from coast to
coast. The poppies are being
made by disabled men in Canadian
hospital?, aud all the money derived from their sale will be kept
in Canada. Five hundred is the
number allotted to Greenwood and
district.
Remarkable Hens
There has been some wonderful
things published about chickens in
mauy papers but perhaps the most
remarkable of all is a hen belonging to Mrs. Ed. Heed, "*of Kettle
Valley. She has a hen which laid
all through her moulting period,
the eggs of which took first prize
at the Rock Creek Fair. Tho hen
had very few feathers but never
stopped laying and the eggs were
tbe best in the whole district, having taken the first prize. This hen
has been laying steady for a year
starting when 4i- months old. Mrs.
Heed also owns a hen 8 years old
and it has laid since early spring
having now stopped. Can you
beat it?
Depreciation in Currency
Illustrated
The first letter to have sufficient
Russjaa- postage came to Minneapolis, U. S. A. post office last
June. It had stamps in 100, 500
and 1000 ruble denominations and
so great was their number that
they were attached to sheets which
in turn were connected with the
envelope. The sheets of stamps
fastened together were five feet in
length. The total value of the
stamps was 200,000 rubles, which
in our money amounts to about
ten cents. According to pre-war
exchange rates this sum would
have been equivalent to a little,
under ��100,000���a striking illustration of depreciated money.���

Mr. Edward Everett Beck, who
since Uie death of Mr. Jackson has
been acting manager of the Vancouver Hotel for the Canadian Pacific Railway, has been appointed
manager. Mr. Beck has been connected with this hotel ever since he
entered the service in 1907, first as
clerk, then as rooming clerk, and
since June 16th, 1920; as assistant
manager.
Calgary���For the first time in
two years the car depp-tment""at
the Canadian Pacific Ogden Shops
worked full time. This was the official announcement made at the offices of the general superintendent
of the Alberta Division. The department mentioned is one of the
largest at the shops and will effect
carpenters, car repairers and helpers. It is stated that the heavy
movement of grain is the cause of
the increased work. The announcement has been received with much
satisfaction  by  the men  concerned.
Sherbrooke.���Three years in the
St. Vincent de Paul penitentiary was
the sentence on Joseph Couture, of
the township of Lingwick, for placing a bolt and a spike on the Canadian Pacific- Railway track. The
case was heard before Judge J. H.
Lemay, in the District Magistrate's
Court, when the accused was charged
with placing obstacles on the railway track with intention to destroy
valuable property and endanger human life. The accused immediately
pleaded guilty and, after receiving
the usual warning from the court,
was committed for trial. He asked
for a speedy trial before Judge Lemay. Counsel for the plaintiff advised the court that the accused had
a rather bad record and claimed that
he had previously served one term
of two years and two separate terms
of four years in jail.
The court commented upon the
seriousness of the offence insofar as
valuable property and scores of lives
were threatened, and pointed out
that he was liable for a term of five
years, or even, a term for life if it
were proven that the obstacles had
bee.i place there intentionally.
Regina���"There is so much wheat
in some parts of Southern Saskatchewan that it will take until next
summer to get it shipped out of the
country," said J. H. Chown, superintendent of the C.P.R. at Regina,
last night. '   >
Mr. Chown made this statement
upon his return from a trip over
the southern, lines of the Regina
district, the trip including the Areola line as far south as Stoughton,
through to Weyburn as far west as
Assiniboia and thence up the Soo
line to-Moose Jaw.      .
"The wheat crop in some of the
districts in this area is as good or
better than 1915," said Mr. Chown,
"and now that threshing is well
under way some remarkable yields
are being demonstrated. Where
people expected to get 15 bushels to
the .acre the threshing machine is
registering 25 bushels, where 25
bushels were ..anticipated-'they are
getting 35 bushels and where 30
bushels;were estimated the yields are
running close up .to -50 bushels to
the acre.
"At fc Vantage,"    continued    Mr.
Chown, "I walked up to a threshing
outfit  operating not far- from the
station' and  engaged  the  thresher-
man, in operation.   ,He told me. the
; field he.was threshing was running
-48 bushels-to .the "acre.    The "grain"
- was uniform, well "ripened, a good
color-and ..an   excellent-sample  of
.���'���wheat' in '��� every respect."'- - - .. ";' - 7.
