What delight the amateur gardener takes in, looking through the
catalogues sent .out by the great
seed bouses, and planning for the
garden for the season that is now
approaching. If cabbages, "and
onions, celery aud lettuce could be
grown to match the splendors of
tha pictures in the catalogues, then
would the soul of the amateur wax
fat. He would become proud and
arrogant, and perhaps think that
he need not go to church any more.
But tho catalogue makers save him
this degraduation. They set ,up
an impossible standard. - They
humble him -by- contrast. Their
pictures and his achievements bear
but little resemblance to each'other.
This is why gardeners are so humble, and make inch good husbands.
Ab the Englishman says, the "gardener and his wife are always together like the 'oe and the 'andle."
Spring is coming, and everywhere birds from the North,
robins from the South, swelling
buds and trickling streams are
announcing that balmy weather
is on the way. These heralds of
spring fili the minds of men with
impatience to be up and doing.
Fishing and gardening and work
ia the fields. Gradually all men
will become eager to join tbe
struggle, the great battle upon
which our very life" depends, for
we must work if we would live.
Not for many years���if ever���
has a .minstrel concert of such excellence and magnitude been conducted in Greenwood as that staged
in the Theatre on Friday, March
Though the idea originated with
the skating rink committee, to
whom every credit is due, it would
have been impossible for them to
carry out their scheme to such perfection had hot the public entered
into the plan wholeheartedly. The
theatre was crowded, and some
were forced to stand at the back of
the hall.
The minstrels, all appropriately
dressed and blackened did their individual parts well but it fell to the
lot of the two end men, Sambo and
Bones,���Chas King arid P. H. McCurrach���to put the necessary pep
into . the programme with their
songs, patter and jokes, while. G.
S. Walters; as interlocutory, was
the real back bone of the troupe
and performed his difficult role to
perfection���especially did he excell
in his hypnotism stunt and later as
a great tradegian.
The songs jind choruses were
well rendered and the jokesj especially the local hits, were snappy
and up-to-the-minute.
The burleeque^band took well
and the Piccanniny Lullady, a
beautiful song, was sung with
great expression by P. H. McCur-
The one act comedy was very
skillfully presented, The good plot
the,bright characters, the comical
situations, kept the audience laughing right up "to to last. It waE
full of thrills and excitement.
To Mrs. J, McD. Reid and Miss
E. U MSKfnaeli fell thV'diffiSatt"
task of accompanying. They^helped
yery materially towards the success of the concert.  -
The originators and workers are
to be congratulated on the very
excellent results, financially and
socially. The dance following was
kept up until 2 a.m.

A British Fire Fighter
Can Throw' 24 Jets to Height of 200 j
A very interesting type of vessel
was recent ly built in Creal. Britain
for use abroad as a fire and salvage
boat and also on occasion its a fug
and water tender. This vessel is over
one hundred feet long and is'driven by
iwo triple-expansion engines giving a
speed of o'ver J 3 knots���which is about
two knots higher than the contract
speed. The boilers are oil-fired and
there are two salvage nnd fire pump's
wi.th a total capacity of .1,000 gallons1
per minute. A powerful single jet
:.P/7> in. in .diameter can be discharged
to a height: of about 200 feet, while no
fewer than 2f jets can be thrown
simultaneously if desired. The vessel is constructed for sea going and is
proceeding under her own steam to
her destination in tlie east.

The examination of school children
from the standpoint of health always
reveals the most alarming percentage
of denial defects. ln this coun'ry
the uniform percentage of children
with decayed teeth is ninety-eight out
of every hundred.
Dental defects constitute the most
numerous, of all defects of the body
lhat are found during medical inspection.
The children who are in greatest
need of attention to the teeth ��� are
found, ainong those, from four to eight,
years of ;igc.
The percentage greatly decreases in
the older groups,
These defective teeth are responsible for many of the serious disturbances of the general health, and especially is this true of the so-called
"rheumatic" siffections, diseases of the
heart and digestive disturbances. No
system of health supervision of children can possibly be effective that
does not secure the successful
treatment of ilentsil defects, or -thai
fails to instruct parents in dental prophylaxis.
In those fortunate communities
where, there is a school dentist the
children should be encouraged to visit
his clinic. The time is coming, according to Modern Medicine, when the
school dentist will be considered just
as necessary a pari of the school system as i.s tlie school principal himself.
In school dental work, where it: is
impossible, on account of a hick of
facilities, to care for the teeth of sill
llie children, then the teeth of the
children of the first two or three
grades should receive attention first,
so that eventually' the percentage of
healthful mouths in thc upper grades
will be increased.
, In these days when it has become
so fashionable lo distribute large gobs
of money for charitable and sociological purposes, it: would seem lhat one
of the very best: methods of benefiting one's fellow man would \ be io
found, in all large communities, dental
dispensaries-where those people who
cannot afford lhe services of the skilled dentist could take their children,
to have their-little lives made something belter than one long memory of
raging toothaches. ' ���
The benefits iu health that, have
been demonstrated by the older established clinics of this type, have shown
Unit this work is one of the most important in the conservation of the
hesillh and the prevention of disease,
that lias ever been undertaken.   .
In communities where there sire" a
number oforphaiiages ami other.ehar-
itable institutions that cannot afford
lhe.regular.services of si .dentist with
a wcli-cquippcd ollice, it is .particularly - desirable to found cent nil dental"
dispensaries that wiil'take care of sii'l"

Inside a double wail of wood is si

long by'2V6 ft. high. These coJIir:s
are the prisoner's cells!

To Investigate Combines
.'ergers And Trusts
Ot tsiwa.���Premier Kind's resolution
providing I'or the introduction, of si hill
to investigate combines,- trusts and
mergers, was introduced in ihe House.
The. Premier stated that at present
(.here, was no effective legislation
against combines. Such legislation
sis had been enacted was divisible into
three groups. The lirst. was in the
Criminal Code, the second was tho
Combines lnvestigsilion Act. 1910, and
the third the Hoard of Commerce Act
smd llie Combines stud Fair Prices
The latter had repealed the Com-j
bines Invest igsifion Act, smd one;
clause in the Hoard of Commerce Act
provided that, no prosecution be til-
lowed under the Criminal Code. The
legislation which he proposed repealed the Hoard of Commerce and Combines and Fair Prices Avis-nnd revived section -19S of the Criminal Code.
Whsit. was needed, said the Prime
.Minister, was effective machinery
which would disclose thc existence
of combines opcrsiling to the detriment: of (he public stud afford means
whereby1 proceedings under the
Criminal. Code might he effective.
Thc proposed legislation, said Mr.
King, supplemented the present: section of the Criminal Code by creating
;i new criminal offence, making.it an
offence for -any person to knowingly
assist or bc party to combines operating to, the public harm. lnx order
y .that persons might: be properly projected    in    the    matter   of   criminal

St. Patrick's Day
"The day set apart for the commemoration of St. Patrick deserves
more serious consideration than
"the tvearin' o' the green."/for
St. Patrick was a notable man, a
devoted missionary, a true poet
'cr.fi a-great Christian. He is not
Xy exclusive patron of one land or
ij(.nomination but has left a heritage for'all Christendom.
His biography repays study'as
-yy example of a man who broke
' --���- invidious bar of adverse cir-
"���'ircRtauces  and  won  his  way to
room   and  influence.     For  six
��� ,irs Patrick was a  slavd  and his
..���r'-ly travels were undertaken  not
from choice but first as a  captive
and afterwards as a fugitive.
��,e. Patrick was an unselfish
missionary. He had learned the
truth of Christ's gospel and he
could not rest uutil others had the
opportunity of knowing it also.
With none of the modern aids of
printing or transportation, he was
���ib]?, io evangelize a large section of
'c's adopted country/ ':,' Born in
' v.cat-laudi,   enslaved     in/Ireland,

Fort William.���The contract for
the construction of si building to replace number fi1?e freight shed, was
awarded by Ca^adi'in Pacific Ksiil-
ivay officials to the Cr. ' ������n'-Hall-
A.ldinger Company, of Winnipeg'. It
provides for two fire .walls which
will divide the new structure into
three compartments.
The new dock along- the new shed
.vill be of concrete. It is the present
intention to use the end of the-shed
nearest the Canadian Pacific Railway subway for the handling' of
local freight instead of the end nearest the city subway dock as was the
- with the old shed. It has been
decided that the new arrangement
will be more satisfactory to company officials and to concerns having business with them.
Discussing the new shed to-day,
D. C. Chisholm, division superintendent, said that the new structure
would be of frame construction very
much like the shed it will replace,
aside from the fire walls and the
concrete wharf.

Winnipeg.���Under the auspices of
the railways, the provincial government and livestock associations of
the province, two livestock improvement trains, similar to those which
toured the province last year, will
again be operated in Manitoba during the coming summer.
The 192M trains are to be known
ns "the Livestock Improvement
Trains." They will give attention to
the following departments: The
benefit of improved quality in cattle: demonstration and sale of purebred sires, both beef and dairy
breeds; the production of fodder
crops; the dehorning of cattle and
other work in connection with the
cattle industry;" the breeding, feeding and marketing of bacon hogs;
the demonstration of desirable mutton types and docking and castration of lambs; demonstrations and
lectures on poultry raising, with the
selling of eggs for hatching purposes; home economic lectures and
demonstrations for women and lectures and education motion pictures
for girls and boys.
The dates for the trains will be
from Monday, April SO, onward for
four weeks. This will cover about
the same dates as last year which
were found very satisfactory.
Olt.T.v:;.'���The Canadian National
i'.siks "ranch of the Department of
tho Interior is commencing the con-
si ruction of a hydro-electric gener-
r.tinp,' s!ation in Cascade creek in,
Ksuft'f'National Park to supply light'
end power i'or the town of Banff,
-\!hc_-.;.. The dam at the outlet of

v.-ill be utilized and will ensure 0|
steady flow of water for power piuM

.ci-nie attractions of the locality.1
F.k-etric power for Banff is at pres��j
inc obtained from the steam plan!(
of tho Bankhead Mines. The work
will be undertaken by day labor.
While We Have Them
Vv'innipcg.���Seven thousand cars1
:�������� grain have been loaded between
��->pt-mber 1, 1922, and Feb. 1, 1923,
fer the western coast by the Cana-i
dian Pacific Railway. This repre-
���rc.ts 10.234,000 bushels of grain for;
:::port from Vancouver. The ship-!
DU'iit.s comprised G.175 cars of wheat]
1G2 oats, 10 barley and 50 rye. Ex-',
ports from the western coast were
r! "stiiied as follows: The Orient,
R:"Jf;,SS0 bushels, and the United
Kingdom 9S7,005 bushels. As at
January 31, there were 900,000
l.u:die!s of Canadian Pacific grain
i:i die elevator sit Vancouver arid 500
cars in transit carrying 735,000
husho!:--. of wheat. Thc present movement west is averaging 25 cars si
Ottawa, r A constantly growing
apprecisitirn on the part, of Canadians of their 'national parks, evidenced by the continued increase in
thc number of visitors in the last
year, is emphasized in the report- o;
National Parks Commissioner J. B.
Harkin. Visitors to all Canadis'in
national parks during, tbe year in
question were estimated at 160,000,
of whom more than '71,000 went 10
Banff. Foreign travelers to the larger
parks were about 65.COO. From an
economic point of view, on a basis
of .300 spent by. each' fcreign visitor
while in Canada, the national parks
accounted for an indirect revenue of
some $19,500,000,' which amounts to
about $2.22 per capita of Canada's
present population. Other revenues
from the parks, in the way of timber
sales and concessions, accounted for
$72,000. Total appropriations for the
parks last year were $966,000.
There's no one like a mother,.lad,
To comfort all our pain;
There's no one like a father, lad,
To make one smile again;
So while we have our mother, boy,
Let's drive away her fear;
And while we have our father, boy,
Let's fill his heart with cheer.
There's no one like a mother, lad,   .
To keep us pure within;
There's no one like a father, lad,
To warn away lrom sin:        ��
So while we have our mother, boy,
Oh, let us not rebel;
And while we have our father, boy,
Let's heed his warnings well.
The time is surely coming, lad,
When mother will be gone;
The time is surely coming, lad,
Of father's passing on;
So while we have our mother, boy,
Let's make her spirit blest;
And while we have our father, boy,
Let's be our very best.   ���

/wcre.-.Iarge.y. Great Danes, but here

touch of the bound or even of the
greyhound in them, and that may account for their speed. The one Unit--
ed States entry in the race was a
magnificent team of huskies that
owned Labrador as their original
home. They were' beautiful dogs,
but they were not in good shape, or
perhaps the story of the race might
have' been' different. ���
-: On each one "of the three.racing
days'Jhe dogs came "from the .staples
fresh and eager'for,-the run. They set
out on- the course at, ten. minute intervals, and as each team shot away'
from the starting poinf it was given
a ? splendid send-off. S .The ������ finishes
were much more exciting, and that of

and giving thcni. a rest-in the shigh. ���'
.He had:niadc'a bet thai he-would for-

a dog looked "ashamed of himself" as

dog  was   the   one. ��� '��� While - Skeehe

LebcH managed to-get into the stable
first, and so won his bet. ���
Lebell is a French-Canadian with
a fine war record, lie arid his dogs
are inseparable chums,, arid- when it
comes to endurance, the man is; about'
as good as the dogs. He finished
the race running beside his' team and
doing a good share of the pulling
on the sleigh. He is to-day the hero
of Quebec and the $1,000 prize and
"silver cup,, which he won, is but a
small part of.the glory that fell to .
him.. ,
- Another-international dog race, is'
practically- assured for Quebec 'next
year.... The-Chateau Frontenac for-
this occasion housed a brilliant gathering . o! guest's who were interested
in. the race, and some of these have
