Oue of the largest crowds in recent years attended the Old Time
Dance in the Masonic Hall on Friday night which had been looked
forward tb with keen anticipation
was a greater success socially and
financially than was expected by
even the most ardent enthusiasts.
Right from the start to the last at
4 a. m. the dance went with a
swing and all certainly had the
best time in years. The old became
young and worries and cares were
banished. The old-time dances
were the great attraction and none
were disappointed, especially the
quadrille,, which to the middle
aged brought back fond memories
and - to - the young an experience
well worth while. The floor waB
in excellent shape and Werner's
orchestra, furnished the music in
grand style. . The supper which
came.from Grand -Forts satisfied
the. inner, man and was. all that
could be desired,. Floor manager
Nichols, put ginger and pep into
the affair and none sat out dances.
Many were present "who had not
danced" for years; many, came a
long distance. It was a-gay.and
merry.throng that���/assembled with
m uch: good, nafeured :j oehing. No
one could keep, their feet still as
the .old . time dances were an-,
nouhced and it takes the old timers
to tip, the light, fantastic. At .4
a.. m. the large crowd were reluct-,
ant to .ieaye bntall���-gopdtimes
must come, to ah end. Three
cheers were given the G. W. Y. A.
under whose auspices the dance
was held and with the singing of
the National Anthem brought a
happy and long to be remembered
night to. a close.

Belief that the copper industry,
expecially the export trade is likely
ta witness a brisk revival if loans
now under negotiation between
American bankers and various
European countries reach the final
stage. Switzerland and' Italy,
countries which are especially
handicapped by reason of their
lack of coal, contemplate enormous
purchases of copper in furtherance
of government plans to harness
their vast water ��� resources. Germany which is sending large quantities of her coal to France under
the terms of the peace treaty, also
is in the market. In addition to
the heavy toll in coal which Germany has to pay France, German
industrial interests, which always
have been prominent in the manufacture "of electrical appliances,
also will buy extensively of American copper, once .there credits are
are reestablished. Belgium and
mosfe of the new countries of central and eastern Europe are reported to be contracting in this
market for supplies ef copper, that
metal entering largely into the upbuilding of feheir railways and
many industries. It is estimated
that the present surplus of copper
approximates 750.000,000 pounds,
of-whieh more than half will likely
be taken for foreign use.

French Station When Completed Will

A recent despatch from St. Assize,
France, s-ays: Loris Deschamps, under
secretary of state for posts ancl telegraphs, laid the corner-stone of what
is d.-signed to bc the most powerful.
(Continued) i
During the days which followed,
Willow studiously avoided Dorkin. If
he wondered at ail, he gave no sign.
Perhaps it was just as well, he reasoned. He wanted time iu which to
regain his poise. Never again must
he allow his heart to flame into that
wild outlawry which overthrew reason and made hiin, in his own eyes, a
thing debased and unworthy of a dead
father's trust. .But in tlic summer
' night.? following- tireless inkkinj.;
through his far-reaching domain, ii:
search ol" m.inif; stations of hi* enemies' vandalism, he lay awake thinking ,
aud v/li.n he fell asleep he .-.aw lie , a
fileudcr wisp of a girl, t;azing at him
villi  cyi s  that called and allured.       i
He missed her ii; those hai-y, scent-'
ed twdighls, missed the grave eyes
lifted to his, the brown hands caressing- the old violin, misled the voice
whose cadence was as soft as the
zephyrs horn in the pockets of hoi-
native forest. He wanted her to re-
niain always as she was r.mv, he tuhl
himself; he wished her simple joy.-,
and pleasures might never know the
unrest which comer, of .-��� eking after
knowledge. i
It  Was  easy   for  him   to  reason  so,'
as  he  sat   alone   at   evening   beneath
the wild-hop vine,  the big grey  lynx
at his feet, gajdng'up at hini from amber,   trusting   eyrs;   easy   lor  him,   a
man of twenty-six, to assume the pari
of foster father to a girl of eighteen.;
If only  afterwards,  as   he  lay's!e p-j
.less���shut   away   from   ihe   low  stars
and the night scents���that imiitter blej
longing did  not  come  to haunt  him.'
During- the.  day   there  was  enough
tohold his mind away from.haunting '
things���things  intangible,  unreal, unforbidden.
Edna Marsh and her unci': had accepted his invitation to spend a couple
of weeks at Hardwoods Retreat. The!
companionship between him and the
girl from his other world had beeu
more than pleasant during the brief
periods that they spent together. He
missed Edna, too���but not as he1
missed Willow. I
He had found many proofs of his I
enemies' hatred throughout his Pre-1
serve; wild mothers wantonly inurd-!
ered and their young dead through i
starvation; the beaver dam broken;
the wdre fence about the enclosure cut.
to allow the wolves to enter; many!
such evidences of the enmity of Dal-j
ton and his confederates. |
But not once did he or La Peer so j
much as catch a glimpse of the van-!
dais.      They were too cunning  to be
seen.   _   Undoubtedly,  they chose  the j

E. Raney, attorney-general for Ontario, iu an address to the Toronto
Board of Trade. Mr. Kaney stated
at the outset that- he was speaking,
not as the attorney-general, but as a
private member of the board. Such
a privilege as appealing" to thc privy
council did uot exist iti England or
in Scotland, Mr. Raney added,, and in
his opinion it should not exist in Can-j
ada. j
Hon. Mr. Ivaney quoted Prof. Keith,!
of Edinburgh University, as pointing'
out that such appeals inflicted in- |
justice on poor litigants who could j
not carry appeals to tlie foot of the!
throne, and he cited the case of a I

Venture Is An Ambitious One With
An Element of Risk.    -
The wheat pool projected by the
farmers of Western Canada is the
latest proof of their enterprise and
self-reliance. It will put to the test
their capacity for organization and
for doing business in large units on
co-operative principles. The 'Board
of Directors of the United Grain
Growers, Limited, representing the
business side of the farmers' movement in the three prairie provinces,
has endorsed the pool as outlined by
the Canadian Council of Agriculture, and it is planned to make the
scheme operative before the crop of
1921 comes on the market.
The aim of the pool, of course, ";ill
be to feed the market carefully so
as not to exceed its demands and produce a glut that will send prices down
with a.rush. Hitherto attempts at
controlling supplies have been made
by speculators intent on cornering the
market. The. benefits of the wheat
pool, if any,, will go. to. the .producers.

anger, has yet to learn that capital
was largely the ceration of the Puritan character, and that the prosperity
of these British Islands was laid in no
small measure by the "thrift and temperance of those who lived simpiy
because they thought deeply, Capital , without which labor could have
done little, is not a contrivance of
the noisy rich, but the deliberate

, A New Style Tractor
British "One-Way Motor Plow Proves
To Be a Success.
Among the most interesting of recent developments in British agricultural engineering is thc one-way
motor plow, which has appeared upon
the British market in the form���judging from field experiments���of a successful model. Upon a commercial
basis, this and the other one-way
plows will makc thcir appearance.
The one-way plow in the present
case consists of six plow breasts;
three being suspended from each end
of the main carriage, which is modeled on the lines of a tractor body
and is driven by an engine sufficiently powerful to haul three In--.
rows in the heaviest clay land. Thc
forward shares arc held out of work
as the motor plow proceeds across
the field and automatically drop into
work when the machine begins its
return journey. Plowing therefore
becomes a succession of forward and
return movements.
One type of one-way plow has the
advantage that it can be used as a
tractor to haul another implement or
a laden wagon, for the plows can be

Condemns   Irish Agitators

British Campaign.
Under the caption; "A P.cal Irish
Grievance." the Ncw York Post deals
editorially'with the recently proposed
vendetta against British subjects, and
tht "tearing down of everything British in the United Slates," as"advocated by Harry Boland, secretary to
Aapionu de Valera, at Madison
Square Garden. Boland's remarks,
the newspaper says, are as "remarkable a tribute to the speaker's ignorance as to his foolishness,"
"'"Sensible and intelligent Irishmen
have long been aware," says thc Post,
"that a serious- disservice ��� is being
done to Ireland by the ignorant hate-
mongers who apparently dominate
the Irish-American campaign. . . .
Intellectual hooliganism frequently
translated into appropriate acts, is
alienating all sympathy from Ireland in this countrv."-

Does your skin get chapped and'
irritable ? Are you distressed by slightly
reddened patches on which appear tiny
watery heads that burst and form into
apres ? Do your arm? or face feel sore,
inflamed and itchy ? If so, a coarse
. fatty ointment will have little effect. You
need Zapi-Buk whose refined herbal
extracts penetrate to the underlying'
tissue and drive-disea3e out. Being
powerfully antiseptic, Zam-Buk purifies
the skfh. It soothes raw angry surfaces,
stops the intolerable burning, itchy irritation, and clears away sores and eruptions.
Mr, A. Josey, Spry Harbor, Halifax,
N.S.. says: "I had eczema on the hands
for three years. The intense itching kept
me awake night long. I had 'eczema
cures' but got no better until I applied
Zam-Buk. This wonderful healer,
however, has entirely rid me of "the
distressing disease." Don't suffer winter
skin torment a day longer. Get Zam-Buk

The Eight-Hour Day
Insiatcnt Demand of tabor Group for
Legislation on This'Question.
This year the laboj- leaders repeat
the request for the eight-hour day
legislation. There was an insistent
demand last session from members of
the Labor group for such a'law, but
thc request was side-tracked, and it
was intimated at that time that a
commission would be appointed to investigate. This has not been done,
but it is likely that an eight-hour law
will be brought in by the government
at the approaching session. The Labor
conference of the League of Nations,
held in Washington last year, agreed
that the eiglit-hour day should be
made the law in the signatory countries. Canada was onc of them, but
it has been held since hy the Dominion Government that such a measure
can only bc enacted by the Provincial
Governments.���Kitchener   Telegraph.

Are  Now   Oa  Terms,, Of  Equality
With The Men Of Oxford And

Few fields remain for thc all-conquering wbmen. Lady Rhondda,
backed by her millions, and her ability, is setting out to batter down thc

sooner or later, she or some other
peeress in her own right, -will succeed.
Women are just now busy qualifying
forthe last of the great professions
to capitulate���the bar, And' the
spectacle of these potential Portias
"eating their dinners" in hall, is one
to view* with mixed feelings.
They are nov/ on terms oi equality
with thc men at Oxford arid eligible
for degrees; but Cambridge remains
to surrender and plaintive voices are
raised that this university shall remain inviolate.
But privileges "tiring in their train

suffragette overlooked this corollary,
Women now havc to share with men
the irksome duty of trying their
peers, and jury service is one that
does not appeal to them. Thcy frequently complain to the bench that
they arc needed at home as baby is
teething; or that therc will be trouble
if father, comes home and there is
no dinner ready. But such picas
avail not, As thc law stands there is
no exemption for women from serving on a certain kind of case, and
this is a distinct hardship on ^11
decent-minded women.
But the list is not complete, for
the church itself is opening its doors,
not vcry wide,, Certainly, but sufS-
ciently for Miss Maud Royden, the
well-known City Temple preacher, to
insert her foot. Thc bishop of London ha9 just licensed this lady as
"a bishop's messenger." Under the
regulation agreed upon at the Lambeth conference, she may preach and
read the lessons, but is not allowed
to conduct any creed service. The
complete admission of women to. tlic
priesthood, from all signs and portents, is but a matter of time.���Lon-

Many Immigrants Coming:
Large Movement From U.S. to Canada is Predicted This .Year,
Manitoba ..will receive hcr fair share
of farm immigration this ycar from
thc United States, according to W. J.
White, of thc department of immigration, Ottawa, who was in Winnipeg
recently. He is the superintendent
of immigration agencies located in rhe
Republic. Mr. White stated the
movement to Manitoba would be
largely influenced by the consistent
and uniformly good crops which have
been grown in the province.   ,
-The superintendent of agencies
predicted a large immigration from
the United States to Canada this
ycES". Written inciuirics received by
the numerous agencies and by Ottawa had been decidedly numerous
this winter, and Mr. White said that
this Could be taken as a barometer of
thc movement to follow. An internes tjiiig jieiatuirej: of .}itliie;4in ni i�� r^tionVs;

The Smile
Greenwood and its surroundings would be a great deal
brighter if all remembered that the smile is a wonderful
tonic and governor. The man who smiles courageous^
when everything seems to be breaking against him will
live longer and do finer work and get better seryice from
the men working with him than the fellow who can't smile.
Smile, and you will feel better, and feeling better you will
produce more efficienly. Your smile may help the man
next you from becoming disheartened. He will smile with
you and both will feel relieved. The smile will spread
until it becomes a good natured laugh. Smile and hum,
or whistle a little tune, full of cheer aud snap and pep.
There is nothing like a little music to bolster the morale.
Of course you musn't bother other people with your whistling and humming. Nothiug is quite so irritating when
one is searching his vocabulary for a word that will fit, as
to have someone whistle. We know a man with whom
<his whistling stunt is almost a superstition. He says
that if he only whistles a few bars of "Over There," or
some other snappy piece on the >vay to work of a morning
that things seem to go much smoother during the day.

The Tiresome Ones.
Doesn't it make you tired at a social party to meet some
one who has to be coaxed at everv turn to do his or her
bit to help things move? The person who upholds his
end at every party and picnic, who does his best to keep
the fountain of humor flowing aud the laughter pealing,
who is ready to "try anything once" he is the chap who
is wanted. He is the one who makes friends. , He is the
one who hangs the crepe on old man gloom, and puts the
blues out of business. Would there were more of the
necessary talent, and there would be more if those possessing it were only more willing and not so backward about
coming forward.
Who has not attended informal gatherings where some
talented player, singer or elocutionist has been coaxed by
the hostess and others to fill in and help disperse a few
dull moments, only to be met with the lame excuse of
"haying no music," "being out pf practice," '.'a bad cold"
and then'have to-listen to somebody who; was. perfectly
willing to keep good cheer onthe'move but who lacked the
ability and talent to "tear off" something ou the piano.or
.-'execute";thc latest popular-ballad?.  -������;'-.-     v , . .-   -    ..
