After a residence of 24 years
Robt.. Wilson left: on Tuesday,
in company with his son Billy,
to make their home in Osoyoos..
Mr.-Wilson 7 was a citizen who
made, his '. influence felt through
community and church activities
andVwill.be missed by all for ,he
had made himself, a sinew in the
development of Greenwood and
his    scintillating    pleasantness
was infectious and was one of
those rare souls who impart an
ennobling   influence    upon   all.
Since 1898 he has participated in
the growth of the city and was at
one time a hardware merchant
Later he was in   the  Customs
office for 13 years and for 10 years
Customs  broker.     The  citizens
regret   the   departure . of   Mr.
I Wilson but in his new abode he
will enjoy the thought of still
living in the -hearts of those he
has left behind.
with his million dollar laugh, his
pleasant word and cheery smile
won his way to the hearts of the
entire community.
G. S. Walters made a very acceptable  chairman   and   had   no
difficulty in making everything go
with a swing as good fellowship
and enthusiasm reigned  supreme.
The   Greenwood    orchestra    was
present and rendered several selections and with P.  H.  McCurrach
at the piano many popular choruses
were sung, while D.  Cayaye gave
two songs  in a pleasing manner.
J. Fawns,   of Midway, late ofthe
Sth Black Watch band enlivened
things with the bagpipes.
The speech of the evening was
the presentation address by (Judge)
I. H. Hallett and while he has
been called upon to make several
of these addresses, never was be so
witty and at the same time expressing the sentimental very ably.
On behalf of the citizens Mr.
Hallett presented Mr. Dewdney
with a valuable clock with the inscription "To Mr. and Mrs,
Dewdney from their Greenwood
friends." . __l.lt;*..._
Mr, Dewdney replied * very 'feelingly and waxed reminiscent of the
halcyon days and predicted a re-
tarn of its glory which has temporarily been suspended.
D. Mcintosh said  that Greenwood had stood the strain of its
vicissitudes and would emerge from
the trial triumphantly.     He  regarded the present  inactivity as
only temporary and felt that with
the rectifying of the world's markets Greenwood wonld again take
its place among the famous mining
districts.     He regretted the   departure of_Mr._ and -Mrs. -Dewdney
and family but congratulated him
on his promotion and hoped that
when he got another promotion it
would be back to Greenwood.
H.   L.   MacKenzie,   of  Grand
Forks, paid tribute to tbe optimism
of tbe citizens of Greenwood stating that it was this faith that had
made and would remake the city.
J. BV Jackson, W. B   Fleming,
F. F. Ketchum and D.   J. McDonald all regretted the departure
of a worthy citizen  and   efficient
public servant but rejoiced in his
promotion and had the conciliating
feeling that, while he would not be
a resident he would at least be an
excellent neighbor and   Penticton
would have an added   attraction
for the people of,this district. 7 7
7 P. : H.   McCurrach, : Mr. Bawd-
ney's successor felt it was an added
honor to have such, a worthy predecessor and would.,, have as his
objective the accomplishing of bis
new  task  to merit the esteem of
the citizens as had Mr. .Dewdney.
Hail and hearty at 80 a veteran
of the district with -his characteristic enthusiasm sang "The Flowing Bowl.''    ���;   ���        VV-VV-VV.
Cheers for the departing and the
chairman were given lusiily and as]
ih the past and shall forever be the
eternal hills  re-echoed   the good
fellowship of the night.
"Magic Pills" Scores
Another Success
On the evening of Monday the
17th a repeat performance of the
"Magic Pills"  was given at the
Co-Operative  Hall,   Bock   Creek,
followed by a sapper and a dance.
It was if poesible more successful
than the previous  one.   As in a
former discription of this play the
leading characters were commended upon.   With regards to them it
can be said that the saying "practice makes perfect",was exemplified.     A   few   words  about  the
minor characters however   might
not be ont of place.
In the first act Mr. Bodman at
short notice substituted in the
character.of the unfortunate husband most successfully. In the 2nd
act, in the absence of Miss King,
Mrs. Bock took her place and Bang
delightfully and the six Japanese
girls, Mrs. Heed, Miss Gane, Miss
Debney, Mrs. Bock, Miss Madge
and Miss Reeh again scored a
In the third act special mention should be made of the acting
of Mrs. E. Bichter who made the
very best of a difficult part, being
ably seconded by Mrs. W. Johnson,
and the three robbers Messrs.
Norris, Walker - and Bock who
were more diabolical with each
In the fourth act Messrs.  Warrington and S.  Pittendrigh made
realistic Spanish ball fighters, and
the Misses Williams and Pittendrigh were most attractive flower

7 Thef new additions tff* the hall ~
consisting of an extra stairway and
entrance, cloak rooms, kitchen and
green room were much appreciated
by everyone, nearly all the work
having been done by voluntary
labor, The dance finished about
4.30 a. m.

for two days during which time
one of the animals died. The
accused claimed he arranged with
another man to feed the animals
while he was away.
The magistrate intimated he
had no intention of dealing leniently with anyone charged with
cruelty to animals. A request
that the sentence be suspended
was made by Chief R, L. Dodge
and this was probably all that
saved Smith . from having to
serve the. time .'without any
option. V      '7.   X .:-, '" ���
Chief Dodge stated the neglect
of animals by their owners was
becoming a. serious thing. Be-
tween Four Mile creek and the
Carmi road, there were no less
than 25 dead^ animals, last Sunday. 7 The cause of death in each
case was.starvation. The aaim*
als were turned out there to shift
for themselves. This resulted in
great loss as there were two
month's; in ���.'every winter when
horses and cattle should be taken
in and fed. Owners who could
not afford to do that should get
rid of their animals.

1 lie Miracle Of Spring'
Spring has conio again wiih ;ill th;ii. it. implies of hope, rebirth, optimism,
growth, youi.li jmtl happiness.    Spring, lit ft ever recurring miracle of thc ages!
It is only necessary lo open one's eyes to realize the wonders ol" Spring
all around. Brooks and rivers, joyfully break their icy fetters and go
leaping, rushing on their way; Irees throw out their tiny leaves; seemingly
tlead and dried grasses almo.u overnight take on a lustre of green; birds appear miraculously and fill the air with song. In a -word, al
iron. ii.<: long sleep and thrills villi life aud the joy of living;
And what Spring means and brings to nature it should mean and bring
to al! niaukind. Just, as the cold earth yields lo lhe benign influence of the
growing ��lrengih of the sun'::- nt's. and casts off the iron bands which have
held i' iu frozen grip, so should 111:111 respond and throw off the lethargy and
vossiiuism of winter and ren^-w his youth and vigor villi Spring.
*- Of course, men do. with the coining of Spring and the renewed activity
oi nature, undertake those duties of the farm which the season brings, while
in the cities artisans are again employed in structural works. ]Jut Spring
should mean u> till men aud women a deeper, more significant message than
merely a call lo summer".-- work.
Spring is the season"of hope and promise.      It is the time of year when
all may turn their backs and their minds on the past
confidence to lhe future. 0
The winter of .1021-102-; was a hard aud discouraging one for many peo
pie.    To sonic it was a time of hopelessness and even acute suffering.      In
Estimate Has $121,000,000 Decrease
Under That of Last Year
The :t&2o U.S. naval bill, carrying
out tho live-five-three ratio, was reported  Lo the House recently.
It carries a total of ��233,22-1,000 or
$'181,000,000 less than appropriated
for Lhe United Stales navy last year.
There remains to be appropriated in
a separate measure later, however,
about sixty million dollars, estimated
by the Jiavy department, as the cost, of
cancellation of contracts for ships not
completed and ordered scrapped.
Briefly, this is what the bill does:
Cuts the eniisier personnel from
95,000 to 65,000, plus 2,000 apprentices.
Leaves oflicei* totals substantially
intact, except, for the dropping of L'SO
reserve officers on active duty.

evitably if caused a lowering of one's morale, a weakening of one's courage,
discouragement, and the development; of a feeling of pessimism about the
future. Nature seemed cruel, and the efforts of man to withstand its vagaries and onslaughts appeared weak and futile.
Bui. with  Spring, nature  comes  in  a  happier,  smiling mood.      If offers
encouragement.      Ones' first effort,  therefore, should be to respond to this
kindlier mood, and to shake off the pessimistic feelings of the past, to turn
from the dark forebodings ol winter, io forget past discouragements, and Lo j
lace the future with confidence and a brave countenance.
Kecognizing the fact that environment has a great deal to do with, one's
state of mind, il. is the part, of wisdom to improve that environment in every
way possible. A man cannot make a success of thingsif all around him are
evidences of failure; progress aud efficiency are noi: born in surroundings
marked by sloth and carelessness. Winter always is characterized by accumulations of useless and waste material, and the melting of the snows reveals much unsightliness which is most depressing.
A general, vigorous "clean up" should, .therefore, be the first Spring duty.
Clean up the house clean up the yard, remove and destroy the refuse ol' winter, repair thai, broken fence, judiciously employ a little paint. Remedy all
those liltle things which give a rundown, shiftless, unprogressive, unprosper-
ous appearance to your place. A little time will do it, and tho effect on
yourself and your family will be amazing. And dou't forget Lo clean tip
your own thoughts aud ideas. Bury out of sight your old forebodings and
gloomy predictions. When washing your house windows don't neglect to
clean the windows of your mind and soul.
Demoralising outward conditions, have a depressing effect on the inner
man, but it is from within that must come the. will to improve those outward

Motorless Aircraft
Trials Expected to Take Place During

Trials of motorless airplanes are lo
take place on an extensive scale in

Hitherto efforts in the direction of developing somc kind of airplanes capable of flying about without -the aid
of motors were generally regarded as
having been lefl to Germany, but
the French have now entered- the
field on a large scale.
The municipal' council or Aydat,

parish*an aerodrome for the use * of
the body formally known as the Experimental Congress of Motorless
Airplanes, which is to be held there
from July 15 lo September 15. The
hangars will be erected'- at the foot
of the peak called. the Puy-de-
Pommegrasse. The motorless airplanes will "take off" from the lop of
the peak.
Too Much Unrest
Many  Causes  Advanced  for   Present
Restlessness in World
Opinions as  to the  cause  of "un-
��� rest" so much in evidence vary quite
as mueh as the numerous forms in
which-the unrest manifests itself.
Some of the causes advanced are too
much jazz, too much hooch, too. much
lawlessness, too much law, too much
restrain on the people, too little re-
" straint;- too" little 'religion, ���too- much
preaching, too much unemployment,
too much laziness, and so on. It
seems to be either too much or- too
little of one thing or another. The
only thing on which nearly everybody
seems to agree is that there is too
much unrest.���Springfield Dnion).

.Speed of the Tortoise
Takes Nearly Four Years to. Travel
One Mile
"A professor at Wisconsin University
in America has been playing a jolly
game with tortoises. He has discovered, by letting loose 166 tortoises
all labelled, that a tortoise takes four
years all but a few days to cover a
distance of one mile.
The professor also noticed 'that in
a period of five months the 166 tortoises went a distance of 115 jards,
thus making their' average speed
about two feet in one day.
Travelling at lhat rate, a tortoise
starting from London would lake

Rosin 7 Has Become Valuable
Motors in Canada
Motor vehicle registrations throughout Canada increased by '18VS per
cent, during 1921. The 1920 increase
was 20_per cenl7;_ that of the.year previous 23 1-3 per cent, while in J 918
a 24 per cent, increase was made, and
the year 1917 marked a-gain of 64 per
cent, over the year immediately preceding. There are now about 520,000
motor ears in use in the Dominion, or
about one car-to every seventeen of
the population.

a - thriving industry in the United

fact that rosin is the -product of the

.Half; a century ago rosin was so
cheap that ii did" not pay lo put
'it in barrels and send it to market.
The barrels were worth ' liiore thun
the     rosin. Turpetine,     however,
brought a good price and eame from
the same sap which * ielded rosin as a
by-product. In consequence manufacturers'concentrated on the turpen-j
tine and allowed the molten rosin to
run into pits, where it hardened and
was covered with earth to get it out
ot the way.
This went on for some twenty-five
years, and .meannhile the value.bf

While raging in his wrath and about
to burn incense he was smitten with
leprosy, a dreadful, incurable and unclean disease. This judgment 'came
upon him as a consequence of his
overweening pride and vanity. He
was thrust out of the sanctuary���excluded from God's house. Indeed, his
own conscience smote him, and he
hurriedly went out because he knew
that the Lord had smitten him. Hc
not only was .excluded from the place
of worship, 'but was dethroned. His
son Jothani was made regent. His
judgment was:
. 1. Sudden. The Lord smote him
while, attired as priest, with censer in
hand. Vre'iuently -God's -judgments
are speedy. '2. Severe. The leprosy
broke forth upon his forehead. The
same judgment befell Miriam for
speaking against Moses (Num. 12:10),
and Gehazi for lying to Elisha (II.
Kings 5:27).. Great sins demand
severe punishment. S.-Conspicuous.
Azariah and all the priests looked up
and beheld the leprosy (v. 20). The

him as the object ot God's wrath.

case even though we have all political and religious freedom. "We are
not a nation," he said, "and the quicker we undeceive ourselves, the sooner
we will become better Canadians. We
are a, dependency of the British
crown. Nationhood implies the right
to make treaties and settle our own
differences. H you want proof rliat
we are not a nation, look at the privy

A zinc schedule, the first in the
history of Canadian mining, has
been issued by the Consolidated
Miuing & Smelting Company of
Canada, in connection with its
smelter at Trail, and particularly
in connection with a special plant
now being built by the corporation
to treat the custom zinc ores of the
Slocan and other Bilyer-lead-zinc
sections on similar lines to the
treatment of its own enormous
tonuage from the Sullivan mine.
The plant will be ready some
time in June. It is expected this
new departure will lead to the
opening of many properties that
otherwise would not have an incentive to open, besides assisting
many now operating.
The smelter will pay for from 60
to S5 per cent of the zinc, for 80
per cent of the gold and silver in
said zinc ore, and for 80 per cent
of the lead, less five units.
The gold, silver and lead recoveries will be in the smelting of the
residues after the leaching out of
the zinc, and the smelting charge
will be less as the zinc increases.
This is the greatest advance in
