Greenwood District Unveils
War 'Memorial to its
Unveiling of a monument to the
memory of 31 gallant men who fell
in fehe Great War was Bolemnized
at Ingram 7 Bridge on Sunday
afternoon, December 9fch. The
monument is a pyramid of
stones cemented together standing abont 10 feet high, with
the names of 31 men engraved on
a marble slab and underneath are
Kiplings words "Lest we Forget."
The committee, Mies Debney, R.
D. Kerr, P. H. McCurrach and A.
Lander have worked hard during
the past two months for this memorial. A huge bonfire was built to
keep the people warm during the
The unveiling was performed by
S. L. Bubar while R. D. Kerr
in the presence of about 200 people
delivered the following inspiring
"We are today passing another
milestone in our lives. Every
since early childhood we have been
passing milestones. Some of these
we are proud of and others we
would rather forget. We have
passed many of them very quickly
and others have taken a long
time. Most of them we have
passed alone, bnt the milestone
that took: us' over four years to
pass, 1914 1918, (the years of the
Great War) we were altogether.
The whole civilized world was with
us during those fateful years.
It was in these years that the 31
gallant gentlemen in' whose memory we have erected this Memorial,
gave their lives defending usiand

We sorrow with the relatives of
these departed gentlemen, - but are
glad and'proud that we belong to
the same British and English
speaking race,
These gentlemen, (also others
who are with ns today) from the
Greenwood district joined the British and Canadian armies, when
our form of cililization was attacked
by the enemy,-who had vowed to
destroy it.
Ever since British history began
heroes have risen np, to defend our
liberty. Bruce and Wallace in
Scotland, and Oliver Cromwell in
England are outstanding figures.
And in the new world George
Washington the finest type of English gentleman, fought for liberty.
A-~no~ti-ae~in our" history "did-we
have such deeds of heroism as during the years .of the Great War.
God granted us the victory: and
behind the bulwarks erected by the
armies' of the English speaking
race, we can live in quietness and
peace within the law. Just now
there is no combination of forces
that dare attack the English speaking races of the world.
It seems to me after all great
wars our race has" risen through
the surrounding mists, to a higher
conception of what our lives ought
to be. If we are to be worthy of
the heroes who died for us, we
most rise" to. a higher plane of

Education, Courts of Justice, Parliaments, Kings and Emperors and
grand armies. Each its time defied the world.
In 1914, the German nation,
with the finest army the world bad
ever seen, {Ifc was mobilized to the
last button) attacked us and * ours.
8arely- sines we were given the

of .Natural History. A party ot excavators representing tho Field Museum and tho University of Oxford
left England for Bagdad early in November. The expedition will explore
long forgotten cities in the east during the ne:a. three years.
Between the Elvers Euphrates and
Tigris in Mesopotamia, where tradition asserts that the Garden of Eden
once blossomed, lie the graves of
many long dead cities, Dr. Davies
said. Eight miles to the east of
Babylon a series of mounds rise to
the height of 70 or SO feet above tho
still fertile plain.
Beneath the mounds lies buried tho
ancient, royal city of Kish. Not only
was lush the seat ot the oldest dynasty in history, - but in the days of
its glory it was the capital of three
more powerful later dynasties wliich,

With Surgeon
A printer received an inquiry from
a. surgeon who wanted bids on several thousand letter-heads, different
sizes, grades and colors, and lie
wanted the form held standing.
The printer wrote back: "Am in

with or without nurse. Quotations
must include putting appendix back
and canceling0 the order if found

Rvcry child's mouth should bo examined at frequent intervals to find out
whether or not there is decay or infection or both.
In many ciiies ancl towns both in
this country and in Europe there arc
public school clinics -where the children's mouths are examined and
where reparative work is done. In
many states thc public health boards
send out dental clinic committees to
examine the mouths of children in the
country and sniall town districts so
that the parents may be informed on
fhe conditions that are present in the
mouths of their children. The interest ln these clinics is very "great; in
January, 1920, an examination clinic
was being held by the Minnesota Public Health Commission in a far northern district where the temperature
was below zero and the snow was two
feet deep. One country school twenty
miles away bundled'up three bod-sled
loads of little tots and sent' them to
be examined. The people of that
kind of district appreciate their children and are going to raise' them up
to be_strong, healthy citizens.' These
clinics are for the purpose of informing the parents what should be done
and the parent can then take the child
to the dentist of their choice arid have
the child's mouth put in order. When
you get a school report' on your' child's
mouth, appreciate it by following Instructions.

In Mine Disaster
Cumberland, li.C.���The lives of oC!
men were snuffed out as the result cf
the explosion in No. fi mine Thursday
evening, according to a statement: given out by officials of the -Canadian
Collieries, Limited. 'Thirty-one bodies have been recovered and two remain in the -mine. Seventeen-of file
victims are white-men and the remainder Orientals���mostly Chinese.
The cause of lhc explosion is
shrouded in mystery. On the occasion ofthe last explosion in the same
mine, in August last, a broken cable
leading to tin electric drilling machine .struck the spark wliich ignited
the gas. in the latest disaster,, however, no drilling, machines were, in
operation, and the nearest electrically
driven'- machinery���tho pump anil compressor���were not more than one hundred .feet from the scene of the explosion ancl neither were in operation
tit the time.
The slowness of ilie investigation
and  recovery of. victims was  due  to
the neces.sily of removing large heaps
of fallen rock, caused by the cave-in,
ami the'Vescue work was interrupted
frequently because of the' hick ���of
In the Cumberland hospital arc

effects of after chimp, who had been
reported dead. They are It. Brown,

making a gallant fight i'or f life, .but
thc-ir recovery is doubtful.   .~
The whole town and district is in
mourning. A coroner's jury has l^een
empanelled and the first steps in probing the cause of tiie explosion 'which
snuffed out nearly two score lives will
betaken. In addition to the coroner's investigation/a full enquiry into
lho disaster will bo held by the Government, and it was announced from
Victoria that lion. William Sloan has

Advocates Measures
To Aid the Farmers
Washington.���The U.S.' debt, commission does not desire to make more
favorable, terms with thc debtor nations than are embodied in the settlement agreement reached with the
Uritish Government, the House Ways
and Means Committee was told by
Representative Burton, Republican,
Ohio, a member of the committee.
Legislation which would give effect
to the British debt commissions was
introduced by 'Representative'." Burton
in the form of a general amendment to
the existing debt funding-law and
and would approve and authorize the
British settlement. ln addition it-
would authorize settlements similar
In terms, with other governments indebted to this eoimtri "subject to tho
approval of Ihe president."
ln its present form the bill was declared to be satisfactory to neither the
majority nor the minority of the committee. Republican members wanted
the specific terms oi' the British settlement setout in the amendment.
Democrats'on the committee regard
the proposition authorizing the commission to make settlements witlilhe
other nations similar in terms to the
British agreement as leaving the-door
wide open'������ for. much more liberal-
agreements. , Their chief objection,
luTwevcr, was to the section authorizing future settlements subject, only- to
the approval of the president. Their
argument was that, pending such de-
ci.--ion, Congress, would remove its control lrom the remainder of the foreign
debt aggregating about 6,000,000,000

Manitoba       Government       Considers
Measure to Prevent Export  From
o      Province
Winnipeg.���--Tho' Manitoba Government is considering the passing of an
order-in-council requesting the Dominion Government, to apply the Canada- Temperance Act 1.0 Manitoba ;m
is applied to Saskatchewan,'- in order
10 prevent llie'exportation of. liquor
from this province.
The Government of Saskatchewan
asked the federal authorities hist
year to put an end lo ilie existence
of liquor export warehouses in that
province, and the Dominion Government, acting under the Canada Temperance Act, passed on order-in-
council prohibiting the export of
liquor from Saskatchewan, as from
November 15. Saskatchewan is the
only "dry" province which has asked
the prohibition of liquor exports.
It is contended that,-should tho
province vote "wet" at the coming
referendum, Manitoba, being no
longer, a "dry" province, the export
warehouses could bo established, as
iu llriiish Columbia, where the Government failed in the courts to maintain a monopoly of liquor import aiul
export.        . "v
.* The view is expressed that; a
"Moderation" regime In Manitoba
would result: in the advent of the
export house, tho rum-runner, highjacker and���probably the bank bandit.

the best interests  of  the  industry

by permitting export in   a  limited

Those who post parcels of
merchandise for the United
States should understand that
these parcels are sent by the
Canadian post offices to a United
States border customs office and
not direct to the office named in
the address. At this border
customs office the parcels are examined for customs duty. Owing
to the immense volume of business at the Christmas period
there is apt to be delay in the
handling of the parcels, and the
public are advised to post all
Christmas parcels for the United
States in exceptionally good time.

The Canadian Pacific Railway is
this year celebrating the twentieth
anniversary qf the.foundation of the
Company's system of pensions for
the employees.
It was in 1902.that the Board of
Directors, under the Presidency of
Lord Shaughnessy, looked into the
future for the benefit of those who
were laying the foundations of the
service that was to take so large a
part in the up-building of Canada.
In December, 1902, the directors
passed a resolution stating that a
time had come when provision should
be made for officers and permanent
employees who, after long years of
faithful service, had reached an age
when they were unequal to the
further performance of their duties,
and announcing that a plan of superannuation had been determined upon.
The plan was a generous one.
The Company provided all the money
necessary, and the employees were
not called upon to contribute to it
in any way whatever, In 1.903 when
it-was first put-into effect Canadian
Pacific, employees [ numbered about
40,000:, \To-day...they; "approximate
80,000,.'and -every, one -of them, from
the .humblest ^stenographer, office
boy, or "'-track'", walker" ;or" even" the
-minor employee at. some far-'off out-
postfin-China'��� or in "Europe, has .old-
age .sustenance-guaranteed so "long

From statistics which cover all railroads and cities on
the North American Continent it has been adduced
that pedestrians on city streets are much more liable
to meet with an accident than are the travellers by tram,
yet few of those who rely upon the railroads to carry them
with safety and despatch from one place to another
appreciate the enormous amount of energy and money
which is expended annually on the installation and maintenance of the myriad-safety appliances and devices
which insure the safe and quick handling of rail traflic.
Because, with few exceptions, every industry contributes
to the upkeep and operation of the railroads, science of
late years has contributed more to railroad engineering
than to anything other than medicine. As new appliances
are evolved, so they are tested for their practicability,
and being found serviceable are placed, into use. That
Canadian railroadf are not behind those of other countries
in the adoption of improved appliances is evidenced by
the fact that the Canadian Pacific Railway has recently
installed electrical Interlocking Plants at all points
where its rail crossings were unprotected along the line
from Montreal to St. John, N.B., and at various points
elsewhere. These ebctrically operated plants at points
where the lines of two companies cross, eliminate all
danger of trains crashing into one another at crossings,
and considerably facilitate train movements.
Electrically operated interlocking plants have been
operated by this Company for many years, and
although not actually revenue bearing they have afforded
an additional degree of safety, which can hardly ^be
reckoned in dollars and cents. As an instance of what
these plants are and do:���trains approaching Montreal
from all over the continent, with a few exceptions,
converge at Montreal "West, and run over the same tracks
from there to Windsor Street Station, a distance of 4.6
miles. J Taking into consideration the empty ones and
those given over to freight, it is obvious that hundreds
of traina'use these tracks daily, and it is to safely.govern
these trains that three electrical interlocking plants have
been installed, at Montreal West, Westnrount, and the
entrance to Windsor Station. .   _,; ,       ,   ��� "
The one at Westmount was last installed, replacing
the hand-lever system which controlled trains entering
or leaving the Glen Yards and using the main lines. Th.
signal tower, which houses most expensive apparatus, i.
entirely fire proof, and has two stories and a basement
The top floor contains the interlocking machine or leverr
by which the signals and switches are controlled, ar,
illuminated plan of the tracks under control and telephones giving direct communication with the towers al
Montreal West and Windsor Station and the train des
patcher and yardmaster at the Glen Yard.   -.���   .
On the ground floor is the power apparatus, the switch,
boards, relays and other necessary apparatus, and the
basement, specially ventilated, contains 55 cells of- storage
battery with a capacity of 160 ampere hours, or sufficient
to operate the plant for one week without recharging.
The track plan, directly over the levers, is electrically
lighted, and by .watching small light bulbs, the operator
is able to mark the approach and progress of all trains.
A bell rings when an approaching train is within one mile
of the plant, and continues to ring until the signal-man
clears the signals and sets the switches over the route.
The levers operating the switches and signals are so
interlocked that a signal cannot be given for a train to
pass through the plant until a route for it has been set
up, and it is impossible for a conflicting move to be made
which would endanger it or any other train. When the
operator has cleared a signal the switches are so locked
that they cannot be changed until t the train has passed
over them. Should a train be required to travel over a
route other than the one originally set up for it, the signal
man cannot make the change without operating what is
known as the "Time Release", a clockwork mechanism
which opens and closes electric ^circuits, unlocking the
levers after a time limit of from "one to three minutes..
The speed with which trains may travel over some
routes is limited, and the object of the time release is to
prevent the operator from changing the route so that a
fast train would proceed over a slow track.
This safety apparatus, unheeded by the travelling
public generally, cost a jgreat deal to iristal, and the
Canadian Pacific receives no return for this except that
which accrues through the additional safety and despatch of its trains.
Mrs. E. Crowe, of. Whitehorse Road, Croydon writes:���"I am pleased to tell you that the.-
small tin of ointment you sent t'o meat Ventnor,
has proved a complete success, my hearing is
now quite normal, and the horrible head noises
have ceased. The action of this new remedy
must be very remarkable, for I have been
troubled with these complaints.for nearly ten
years, and have had some of the very best medical advice together with other expensive ear
Instruments all to uo purpose. I need hardly say
how very grateful I am, for my life has un ler-
pone an entire change. 7
