Interest in Curling was very
much enhanced when seven players came over from Osoyoos last
Thursday and  enjoyed  two days

101 points  to   Greenwood's  85.
Osoyoos has real fine curlers and
good sports  and  as one of them
remarked they hoped to make it
an    annual    event.     Thursday
night a  supper was served and
President Jas. Kerr occupied 4he
chair.   He welcomed the Osoyoos
teams on behalf of the Club and
as the gathering consisted mostly of Scotchmen,  who could not
wait for   the real , day '(Burn's

called  on   Mayor   Gulley   who
literally gave the keys of the city
to the visitors.     Frank  Fraser
replied : and thanked   the  local

Claim      Increase     in.  Non-Essentials
Bought in Prairie Country
On the prairies the trade reviews
for lust year's activities show* a larger
percentage of increase in the business
relating to pure luxuries than the necessities of life.
This is especially true as to the expansion of retail jewelry stores, drug
store novelties and so-called millinery lines of ladies' footwear, in these
thero has been a big increase all over
the prairies, just as there has been in
automobiles and auto accessories.
The increase in number of licenses
in the prairie provinces is. not nearly,
to be compared witli other years, being an average of 2,000 for each
province, but this record is deceptive
in ihat it does not show the number
olrears scrapped. A purchaser of d
now car, delivered in March, merely
transfers the license for his old can
and the registration does not show
the transaction. Agencies estimate
that at least 20,000 new cars were sold
on tho prairies, and probably more,)
while the number of old cars Equipped
with clocks, windshields, wings, inside
lights, patent blinkers and touring car
equipment was never so numerous

He is Dr. Walter II. Eddy, professor of physiological chemistry of

Naturalists Court Danger
Chasing Butterflies Is Hazardous
Work and Expensive as Well
"An infantile taste." was Mr/. Justice Darling's comment ori butterfly
collecting-as a hobby." That the criticism seems.hardly justified.is-revealed by the will of the late Mr. N. C.
Rothschild, who, having sepnt a fortune on acquiring specimens of the
rarest butterflies and insects, directed that all his papers.pertaining to the
localities in which the insects wero
found .should bo destroyed in the interests of entomological science.   :
In some respects butterfly hunting
is one of the most hazardous occupations. Numerous people, 1'suspect,
visualize the butterfly hunter as an
eccentric, being who wears blue glasses
and chases iiis quarry with a long-
handled .net. They would be surprised to learn that the butterfly hunter
frequently takes his life in his hands,
particularly when penetrating unexplored forests, such as those of New
Guinea, Brazil, and Western Central
Africa. "' It was while collecting in
New Guinea thai, one noted hunter,
Hagner, was killed by cannibals, while

preparing to raid a neighboring village. I stilj carry thb -mark of a

How Music Affects the Heart
The Fast and Merry Time Quickens

Various are the emotions which dif-
I event strains o! music arouse. There
is the martial air, which stirs to bat-
rie, (lie merry tune of the dance,;the
plaintive music which depresses.
Science has discovered ,that It is all
due to a little gland situated at the
base of one's brain, and ii controls
��he rhythmic beating of tho heart, ft
pri'vents it.���and other organs of the
body���from racing, or working irregularly. Martial music vxcites the pituitary gland, very muchV and in. response the gland manufactures and
sends into one's blood more than its'
normal amount of'fluid. It is this
fluid that controls the speed of one's
heart, and with the extra amount one's
iT-art. bears much faster, giving one
that exhilarated military feeling. Another type of music acts on the pituitary gland in just the opposite way-
it slows it' down, with an accompanying depression or sadness.

Thousandth of a Second
Written Signal Will Travel 186 Miles
In This Space of Time
What can happen in thc thousandth
part of a second?
This -question comes to the mind
when we hear of the wonderful instrument in use today at the Royal
Observatory at Edinburgh, which Professor Sampson described at a British
Association meeting.
A wireless signal will iravcriSG
miles in a thousandth of a second; a
ray of light will do the, same; an express train .travelling 60 .miles -an
hour will cover'just one inch in" lhc
time.-
It is for registering with great'precision the timc of any signal that this
wonderful instrument has been made.
It is an electric detector and records
the movements'of a tiny spot of light
on a moving pholgruphlc film. These
very  minute, measurements   are, be?.
AS age advances our wants are not
'many and with reasonably good
health we can enjoy the peaceful
period of life in comfort and happiness.
But unfortunately there" are certain ills
which conspire to destroy the pleasure of
this time in life��and they are usually of a
, decidedly painful nature.
The kidneys are often the first of the
bodily organs to fail. Then the poisonous
acids which should be eliminated by the
kidneys circulate in the blood and cause
backache, rheumatism, lumbago and the
many ailments which make life so miserable.
There has, perhaps, never been a medicine
so well suited for people of advancing years
as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
This statement is founded, on the many
thousands of cases reported to us from
time to time.
The success -of  Dr.   Chase's  Kidnev-.
Li ver pills'is due to their direct and specific
action on the liver-, kidneys and bowels
whereby the- accumulating" poisons are
.quickly swept,from the system and the
cause of pains and aches promptly removed.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills do not
lose their effect on the system as'do so
many medicines but can be depended on
absolutely to bring about the desired
results. Used one pill a dose at bedtime
as often as is necessar*/ to keep the bowels
regular, they relieve indigestion; biliousness "and "constipation and keep.- the-
system in healthful condition.
You will notice that while the price of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver, Pills has been
increased to 35 cents, the box now contains 35 pills instead of 25 as formerly.
Likewise the price of Dr. Ch asp's Nerve Food is
now 60 cents a box of 60 pills instead of 50 cents for
60 pills,    iidmanson Bates & Co., Ltd., Toronto.

We live in a day -when Children's

creatures and should bc treated with
reverence, or at least with the gentle-

There are two ways you can get a

(1) By being cruel to people. " Ol
course, most normaI--girls-and-boys
would hardly like lo be called-cruel;
and yet how often you can be %vlth-
out just.knowing it3 name.
A boy that Is u bully is a cruel boy.
Al school he likes to lord it. over other
boys, especially if they are > smaller
than he is. "   .
I knew a boy once iu a* school in
Toronto, who at recess was knocked
down by a bigger boy vfho pushed his
face into a snow bank and sat on him
until he was in an agony of suffocation. . I don't suppose the. boy realized what he was doing, but he' was a j "Not mine," she said
bully just the Fame.       t . i -~^
Hc i.s .the fellow who likes to see]      ���������������
smaller, fellows a I raid   of him,    and |
likes to strut around with the feeling
that he is cock of the.walk!
I was, going to a funeral one day,
and" saw a large boy on the street,
seated on a small boy who was lying
helpless on his back and enduring all
kinds of nasty actions by the young
bully, if I had not been tit tlie head
of the funeral, 1 would have stopped
and gone and spanked him!
How boys hale a bully. He is a
coward, you know, at heart. A real
brave boy will never take advantage
of some one weaker and smaller than
himself. A real brave hero protects
others. The boy who hurts soine ono
who can't ttefend himself is, tt mean
coward. , .It does not matter how big
his breast .is or how far it sticks out,
his inside heart is small, and narrow
and hard. Now. don't you be like
that! . ,

Young men are wanted, everywhere, but nowhere more than in

Binf a little, some can Bing well.
Uie that talent in the churches, in

Us�� it every Sunday at every service of the .church you attend, and
it will not be long before every
Mat is occupied. Then the price
of land will go cp.
Young men are wanted in the
places of amusement, and they
flock there. When all young men
become good card players, or
fine ^billiard players, then the
price of land will go down. This
ia true of every village and every
country community.
It is important that the young
mon should read. But it is not
necessary to make a burden of this
ta��k. . It is easy to founder a colt
or a calf by -overfeeding. Too
much reading has a similar effect
upon the mind of the young, man.
One good book a month' about the
important things of life, or history,
.or science would work wondere, if
all the young men would do it
faithfully, the price of. land would
go up. WW .';   x'X-' yX\) X y [

"That Midsummer morning men and
women and children all said, "What a
wonderful morning!" and they drank in
the sweetness of it with deep and rare
enjoyment.
And every man, woman and child, in
some curious way, felt differently towards
all with whom they came in contact.
They did not understand it. Tkey were
hardly conscious of it. But, somehow,
things went better���at home, in school,
at the office, at the works���everywhere
there was a new feeling towards one's
neighbour.
For the Spirit of Christ was abroad
in the land.
Men and women saw all things with
different eyes���saw only the good in
their fellows, not the bad, curbed the bad
in themselves, aud gave out only the
good. Every man treated his neighbour
as h�� wished to be treated by him. Life
was as it had never been before. Truth
and Right and Love were everywhere
predominant.
For the Spirit of Christ was abroad
in the land.
Going to business that day, aud coming
home at night, a new spirit of kindliness
and courtesy prevailed in trains, aud
trams, and 'buses.
There was no hustling aside of women
and cbildren, aad no woman stood while
a man sat.
For the Spirit of Christ was abroad
in the land.
Business men who had been planning
and scheming to get unduly abfead of
their fellows felt a sudden disgust of
their methods, and dropped them, aud
dealt squarely with all'men.
Masters suddenly appreciated the fact
that their men were not "hands," but
brother men. Workers discovered that
masters were human, and not necessarily
sweaters and slave-drivers.
For the Spirit of Christ was abroad
in the land.
And in the high places of the world,
where Truth and Right aud Love bad
never yet had proper place���in London,
Paris, Rome, Brussels, Washington, 'and
every other capital, Cabinets were" hastily
summoned, and policies were hastily
revised on that novel basis of Right,
Truth and Love. ; And the world at last
had peace. -       '
For the Spirit of Christ ruled therein.
News From the Capital^
Victoria, Jan." 30.���rAnother instance of what the financial
world thinks of British Columbia
is to be found iii the price.which
Hon. John Hart, . minister: of
finance, obtained for the $2,000,-
000 worth of bonds, just .sold.
Twenty-five year .five per- cent.:
. bonds went for 96.877 and th�� return figures out 'X at 5.22. In
other words, this price isrthe best
secured^sirice the . province. last
floated a five; per.; cent:. loan, a
little better than- the last loan
a��d a good deal, above thefrecent
western provincial loans.   7
Half of the new loan goes to.
take up treasury bills sold, to the
bank to raise, moneyi- for capital
outlays "on* University, building
and trunk roads. The other half
will refund /the million dollar
loan which matured last October.;
This loan ^was made just .before
the 1920 election and. boreinterr
est at six per entity.and the price
at which it. was sold in New.
York, together, with the premium
which was received ..when.- the
purchase price was: paid'-here,
made the cost to theVprbvirice
4.79 percent. Considering 'pre-,
miums paid on remittances of interest and principal, the actual
cost of the loan was 5.475 per
cent. Hon. Mr. gart figured on
clearing off this loan fern a 5.30
per cent basis but succeeded in
doing so on a 5.22 basis..:
