Greenwood, Our Town
I write anonymously, so it does
not take so much courage as one
would think. If my identity leaks
out I Bhall probably have to leave
Greenwood by the early morning
train, for being 'over-bold, but I
trust in Providence and the editor
to grant that I may be allowed . to
claim Greenwood as my home town
for some years yet,
; Now everyone knows that we've
got the prettiest little town in B.C.
-We'know it, but we're not nearly
proud enough of the fact, nor do
w.e make the best of it. Some other
towns possess more luxuries, but
its like the plain girl with the
rouge pot and the lip stick���place
her beside the really pretty "real"
girl, and where is she? Greenwood
has -natural beauty. Let's make
the best and think the most of our
little town. We can wander down
by the babbling brook; Think too
of our trees. Where else could we
see the Fall colors and Spring glory
to such advantage as around our
own burg? .We should see less
beauty in the snow's whiteness did
not the trees gather it up and
spread it out before our eyes, so
beautiful sometimes that it looks
unreal. And in the summer time
think of the gallons of concentrated
happiness which would be lost to
the world of men if we couldn't
wander in our shady bluffs to col.
lect the wherewithal for pur numerous brews.
The lakes which are near our
town are more than an aeset. And
we have athletic grounds and tennis
courts in our town too, but again
lack of enthusiasm is proving almost fatal to the life of the game.
Our skating and curling rinks"need
ftto boosting.
I want to voice a '. strong, if
anonymous, appeal for a cultivation of the make-the-best-of-things
feeling in Greenwood. Let's cooperate instead of disintegrate.
Let us get together���there aren't
many of n's left after all. Let us
be broadminded and give the other
fellows opinion a chance,,, and. I
believe, we could infuse lots of
life and fun into, in my opinion
an ill-used town Greenwood.
Mining News
The Norfehport smelter will close

Commencing April 1 wages at
the Anyox smelter of the Granby
Consolidated Mining Smelting and '
Power company will be reduced by
25 cents per shift. Wages at the
Cassidy collieries offehe same company will not be effected, as the '
miners work there under a different agreement. In announcing
the "wage cut last Saturday, Valentine Quinn, comptroller of the
Granby company, said that it was
made necessary by the present condition of the copper market.'
"Development work has been
commenced in" earnest on claims,
rich in strontium, located about
three miles out of Princeton and a
large body of ore bas been uncovered, of which samples recently
assayed gave returns of 75 per cent.
Samples uncovered since appeared
to be considerably richer in strontium -than anything previously
found. The discovery of this mineral was made two and a half years
ago but at the time nothing was
done with it, owing to the low
price strontium was bringing on
the market.. ; ~./V.'.-V \"." "   "
Strontium is used in the process
of sugar refining, the manufacturing of powder and fireworks' and.
other chemical processes. It ii
stated that about thirty per cent
more sugar, can be extracted by its
use than can be obtained from the
raw material without it. During
the war the price of strontium was
extremely high but after the arm-
istica the bottom fell out of the
market. Recently, it is said,
sugar refineries have begun to
realize its great, value in their business, and the price is again rising.
It is a very rare mineral. In 1916,
reports only show some 10,000 tons
th i ned but he Nor th"" Amer ican eonV"
tihent. .The principal mines are
in California and Nevada, but
strontium is also found in Ontario.
The first discovery pf strontium
in the Similkameen was. made in
1918. when a party of men. Messrs.
.Meausette, Daw and MickeL staked ,
claims, in   the   Ashnola.    Claims^
were also staked for. half' a mile all
around their original discover}', its
is stated, by private parties in the
interests, /of   the   Stewart-Calvert
Co./,   of   Oroville.     So  interested
was the Dominion  government in
this discovery up the Ashnola that
specialists were, sent in.; to  investigate.    The body of. ore,- however,
was. .'so segregated and^thp haul,
to ; the .railway,,   so    long'' that
practically, no work   was done on
the claims on  account of the ex-.
pense of operating.    '���
Having discovered near .Princeton a large body of pre which is -
easily accessible, the .men interested are working with outside capital
to put in a refining plant here.and
it is expected shat. will be.done a$
an early date. The process of refining is.very..simple.. - The ore is
reduced to a powder ."and then
treated with steam to bring about
separation, after; which it is dried.
Obmmnnicatibn;;has also beeri
opened up with interested firms to
establish a market -.and to ascertain, exactly what is the presenl.
market price of strontium."���8am-

"They'll not!" came in a growl as
from one man.
"And remember, let them fire first."
Hc glanced about him, and motioned Danny Farncy a little apart from
lhe others.
"Danny," he said���and there was a
note in his voic-e that the boy had never heard before���"to-night 1 want you
to bury nil personal enmity against
Dalton, and fight toe to toe with me
and the others, for our World. Don't
shoot, unless you have. to. God

to have to do, without letting passion
and bloodlust master us."
"Jest as you say, Dorkin," Danny
replied. "I wasn't aimin' ter take

"That's right, Danny. Now you
ikeep this position, and HI place the
others. Then I'm going up to thc
cabins for a moment or so." He
reached for the lad's hand and gripped it in his.
^ Fifteen minutes later, having stationed his men, Dorkin went up to
the'cabin. Hc found the patient
much improved, Edna sitting beside
him. Mrs. LaPecr had given over
going to the Settlement. She had
:not wanted to go, in thc first place,
and 'welcomed the excuse of having
visitors to keep her at home.
Dorkin remained a short time talking to his guests. "By the way," he
remarked, as he turned to go, "if you
happen io hear shooting during the
night, do not be concerned. ' Word
has reached us that a wolf-pack is
in tlie region of the Preserve, and tonight we are going to stay awake on
the chance of a shot." And bidding
them good-night and pleasant dreams,
he passed  out.
- As he stepped from the cabin, Willow came from thc shadows and confronted him.
"Dorkin," she said, "is Dalton an'
bis men comin' to-night?"
"Who told you they were, Willow?"
he asked in surprise.
"Nobody told me. 1 know, that's
all. What did you do with my rifle?"
��hc demanded.
"1 put it away,'Willow."

Farms System
Experimental Farms System of Canada Not Appreciated as it
Should Bc.
Remark has several, times been
made in parliament and elsewhere
that the splendid work performed by
the experimental farms system of
Canada is not nearly so widely known
and appreciated as it should.'be. In
The Agricultural Gazette of Canada
for January there appears an outline
of tho system and the tasks in which
it is engaged. The Central Experimental Farm.at Ottawa is the headquarters of the twenty branch or auxiliary farms and stations. It is stated that there is-one farm in each of
the provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Ontario,
two in Nova Scotin, four in Quebec,
two in Manitoba,'three in Saskatchewan, two in Alberta and four in
British Columbia. There arc also
two sub-stations in Alberta, two in
thc Yukon and one in British Columbia. In addition, working with the
system arc tobacco stations at Farn-
ham, Que., and Harrow, Ont. At all
of these experimental and research
work of national importance is ca'r-
ried'on. Eighty illustration or demonstration stations' have also been
established in New Brunswick, Nova
Scotia, Quebec, Alberta and Saskatchewan. Each branch of agriculture is dealt with in actua1 experiment, and thc results arc made public through thc press and by means of
addresses, demonstrations and exhibits. In short every effort is
made to encourage, advance and benefit agriculture, thc basic industry of
the country. ���

Alberta stockmen are now proposing to open a new market in Great

Under existing regulations the animals will have .to be slaughtered within ten days of their arrival at a British pert. A considerable business,
however, along these lines has already

Figures compiled by the Red Cross
prove that in.the United States, 20,-
000 children, under fourteen years of
age, each, meet- violent deaths. Burns,
falls, automobile* and other vehicular
accidents, drowning and poisoning
exact the heaviest toll of child .life.
Forty per cent, of the children who
die before reaching their fifth birthday are killed accidentally, while almost 20 per cent, of the deaths claiming those between five, and fourteen
result from accidents', the compilation showed. - After fourteen, accidents cause proportionately fewer
deaths. First-aid instruction given

Taxation in Canada
Third Article.
The more "exhaustively any study is made of the whole question of taxation in Canada, the stronger does the view prevail that .under existing circumstances two main reforms are imperative, In the first place, radical
changes shouldbc effected in thc methods now employed in the imposition
and collection of thc Income Tax in order that a simple, inexpensive and
practical system be substituted for the present elaborate,, expensive and
highly confusing one. ^
Secondly, and even more-important in its effects on business and as a
means of raising thc large revenues now required without imposing too
great a burden on anyone, and to bring about that equality of treatment
which is essential in order to remove existing feelings of bitterness against
all taxation because of so many evidences of injustice, one uniform tax
should be imposed and present levies on business removed.
Is there one simple, uniform method that can be applied which will
operate with absolute fairness all round and at the same time be capable
of producing a large revenue, easily collectible and at a minimum of expense both to the Government and the taxpayer?
We believe there is, and that it is to bc found in a fixed uniform tax
on the turnover in all lines of business. The introduction of such a tax
is growing in favor in the United States, and, to the extent that it has been
applied m Canada, it is operating satisfactorily and with a minimum of expense and friction,
 The plan proposed is extremely simple.     It is that everybody engaged
in business, large or small, manufacturing, wholesale, jobbing, retail, law
below the surface, after' passing!
through a bed of quicksand,. He kept I
the discovery secret until he had some
of the coal tested. It is reported to
be equal to any of the western coal
for domestic purposes. Development
operations will probably be commenced on an extensive scale this
summer. -

Professor Arkell Urges Farmers
Regain Lost Ground.
Professor H. S. Arkell, Dominion
livestock commissioner, addressing
thc agricultural section of thc chamber of commerce at Hamilton, urged
upon the farmers the tiecessityof defeating their competitors in the export market and deplored the fact that
Canada had lost seriously in its export trade since the war. Other
countries were now supplying-the agricultural products which Canada,
should be supplying, Commissioner
Arkell said. " "Canada's prosperity
depends upon, its ability to increase
its export trade in agricultural products," he said/
First Automatic Machine.
Few persons arc aware of thc fact
that the automatic machine was first
used more than 2,000 years ago. Its
inventor was Has, of Alexandria, who
flourished from 117 to 81 B.C. It
was actually a slot machine, which
in return for a coin of five drachms
offered a cup of wine, and was worked on similar lines to thc modern
slot machine.

amount of thc tax it would be levied fairly and equitably on everybody, and
there would be'no necessity for thc elaborate system now prevailing, nor
for imposing on business'-the obligation and expense inseparable from the
complicated system of returns and reports now demanded by thc Finance
Department, \-  . .'.
Such a tax would bc the essence of simplicity; it could not fail to be
understood and easily, grasped; it would apply to one and all alike,
whereas present systems are distressingly complicated and manifestly unfair
in their application.
The collection of the tax would be automatic and ^disturbing, offering a sharp contrast to thc present disturbing and highly expensive system.
The distribution of thc burden of taxation would be just, falling like
the rain. Those who consume the most and spend most would pay the
most taxes, because, in thc final analysis, all taxes are paid "by thc ultimate
consumer and purchaser.
The revenue derived by the Government would not be dependent uponj
fluctuating periods of. prosperity and depression in business, as it is wheni
based onprofits...   The purchases of thc people will, of course, vary some-'
,what, but the variation is not so great as to seriously affect-the gross sales
'upon which-thc tax would he levied.', .   ���     ".   ' ""..'"''

fares include berth and meals en
route, but not while thc steamer is
in port at  Skagway.    '
There will also be summer excursion fares from Skagway; to inland
points via the White Pass and Yukon
Railway. ���
It is .expected travel will be heavy
to Alaska, and anyone desiring to
make thc trip should make reservations early.
Long Standing Asthma,
have suffered so long from asthma
and Have tried so many so-called rem-
cd.es they think that there is no real
help for them. They should rgad the
letters received by the manufacturers
of Dr. J. D. Kcllogg's Asthma Rem
A letter has come from an earnest
little woman, going to be an Easter
bride and contemplating what she
should buy for a modest home.
She writes: "We have just one
thousand dollars. We thought of
placing five hundred dollars in the
bank as a sor.t of reserve or emergency fund and of expending 'the
other five hundred on our home."
And she asks suggestions.
The real home .is a development���
a growth. And with such limited
capital it is far better to buy a few
furnishings of excellent quality and
add to them.
Let us start with the kitchen.
You will want one or two chairs, one
preferably a chair which folds into
a ladder. They may be purchased
unfinished and painted and enameled
by yourself.
In selecting pots and pans go
slowly. When ������ you start, as the
need arises for a pot or a cano opener
or anything else, jot it down. It is
not necessary to cover thc floor with
linoleum. Better wait. When you
have more money to spare you can
buy the inlaid linoleum at about two
dollars a yard. It will last fifteen
years. -

fibrous 'material has been devised by a
British engineering firm. The complete machine includes a steel frame

crane driven by an oil engine and
winch- mounted on- the-platform. .For
the purpose mentioned the crane is
fitted with a special form of automatic
grab. This grab is formed by-a

Of all the holidays in the }'ear Christmas and Easter
stand more prominently on the page of history than any
others, Throughout' all' the nutations and vicissitudes'
that have entered into the world's history during the past
two thousand years the two festivals that commemorate
respectively the birth and the resurrection of the Man of
Nazareth still shkie with a luster that remains unfaded
after the lapse of two centuries..

termed the "queen of festivals.'' ' It has- been observed
from the foundation of the Christian religion, and is celebrated in every part of the Christiau world with great

Easter was not kept as a festival until the fifth or sixth
century, but previous to that the question of establishing
it as a feast day before the council of Nice, when it was
decided authoritatively that Easter was henceforth to bc
the Sunday following the fourteenth day of the calendar
moon which, happened upon or next after the 21st of
March so that if this fourteenth day be a Sunday, Easter
was not to be on that date but on the next followino- Sun-
day.- Easter da\r, therefore, maybe on any day within
live weeks inclusive of March 22 and April 25. It cannot
happen earlier nor later than these two dates. In' 1883,
Easter occurred on March 25, and again in 1894, which
will be twice in the past century. In 1951 it will "occur
again ou March 25. ' "-

Tha Easter festival of our forefathers covers a period
of fifteen clays. The week beginning with Easter Sunday
was most entirely given over to sport and games and general merry-making. An odd feature of the old time celebration was that of heaving or lifting, the "heaved" sitting in a chair decorated with white ribbons. Easter
Monday and Easter Thursday were' known as heaving
days, the women sitting in a chair on Monday and the
men- on Thursday. Those heaving or lifting the chair
were expected to lift it three times, and then kiss the
occupant who, in turn, kissed <, them. To the regret of
the lads and lassies in the districts where- the novel ceremony-was'once performed the Custom has long since died
out.' '���������""-..������.-���������.'".-",.' .-     ������        .
