convenience, but it is expensive.

would not keep it up." They
w;ould have failed under it. The
farmer of today finds it a great
expense, "but he can't give it .up.
It is a great convenience and he
needs it.- The effort should be to
increase the income so as to make
it. equal; to the-expense oi the
auto. But how is this to be done?
The way has not been found yet
but undoubtedly it wiil be found.

Successful Fall Fair
- The Seventh  Annual  Fall Fair
held  under   the   auspices   of   the
Rock Creek Farmers and Womens
Institutes in the Biverside Hall on
Friday * Oct. 6fch, came well up to
the expectations of those  who had
been keenly interested in establishing it as a permanent yearly event.
The way the  Fair was managed
speaks well, for the officials.    To
the general public the Bock Creek
.Fair was most interesting.    This
was indicated by the large number
of paid admissions, people coming
from all parts of the district,   Most
people have a warm corner in their
hearts for these Fall Fairs and en-
-joy examining the entries.    While
the entries were not as numerous
as last year, still tbe quality was
equal to if not better   than last
year;   The ladies section  was particularly  good  beiDg. beyond   expectations both in  number of exhibits and quality.    In  fact it was
said that the ladies section had a
better showing than many fairs in
larger communities.
Great interest was taken in the
Childrens Pig Competition and the
lecture given by the government
judge was veny instructive.
The Field Crop (Potatoe) competition was an extremely interesting one and the results were in
doubt until the very last minute,
first one competitor and then another lead the field as the different
heading were ecored up, William
Johnson    eventually    getting    in
Rod and Gun Club Formed
front by a slight, superiority in
"freedom from disease" and "Marketable weight of tubers per rod"
combined over his nearest competitors. The judge strongly
recommended more certified seed
for the future.
The Turkey Shoot also  drew a
large crowd and was the scene of
I keen but good natured rivalry.
The Dance in the evening was
most- enjoyable, Bash's four-
piece orchestra-rendering excellent
music.

A meeting for the purpose of
organizing a Rod and Guu Club
was held in the Rock Creek Hall
last Friday afternoon and was
well attended by representatives
from Myncaster, Rock Creek,
Midway and Greenwood.
G. S. Walters and Major Gray
were appointed chairman 7 and
secretary respectively for the
preliminary meeting and explained the objects of the proposed
organization. E). F. Wilson also
spoke of the necessity of such a
club and made a formal motion
that there be formed an organization to be known as the Greenwood and District Rod and Gun
Club. James Kerr seconded the
motion which was unanimously
carried.
-The   following    officers- were
elected:    Hon.   President,   John
Zurfiuh,   Midway;  President, G.
S.    Walters,   Greenwood;   Sec-
Treas., Major Gray,   Kettle Valley; Committee:   J.  R.   Jackson,
J. Richter, G. McMynn, Midway;
E.   F.  Wilson,  G.   Harpur,   E.
Richter, Rock Creek; James Kerr,
C. King,  W.   Walmsley,   Greenwood.     The   bylaws   and   constitution were then drawn up and
adopted  with certain  clauses to
be further submitted ot  a future
meeting.   Copies of the bylaws
will be available very shortly and
as the  membership  fee  is only
one dollar it is to be hoped that a
large number of people will avail
themselves of the advantages of
the club and thereby assist in the
better regulation of the sport in
this district as well as helping in
the movement for the conservation of certain  classes of game
and the better preservation of the
fish in the numerous streams and
lakes of the * district.    The next
meetingwill be held in tbe Rock.
Creek Hall at 8 p. m.  on Friday,
Oct. 26th, when a big attendance 1
for the whole of the district is'
anticipated..

Vagrant   Meteor  Falls   Into   Street  At
Madison,  N.J.
Wluu is la-lieved to have been ;i

causing an unusual light, to Hood the
neighborhood. The phenomenon was

Augustus Wil.von. whose home is on

ilaino Hushed toward the earth, coming, he thought, from the northwest.
The impact with which it hit the
ground threw one woman out of bed.
Around the edge of thc hole torn in
the pavement was a substance like
lead. According lo Wilson, a black
vapor arose from the point, where the
supposed meteor struck. The hole,
however, had been tilled iu early in
the morning to safeguard pedestrians. \

New Theory
About Petroleum
Philadelphia     Professor     Says     Fish
Constitute   Sole   Source
Fish constitute the sole source of
petroleum in the opinion of Dr. John
M. MacFarlane, for many years professor of botany at tho University of
Pennsylvania, who has just completed
a long research on the subject.
A statement given out by thc university said that Dr. MacFarlane's
study of fish and their relation to
petroleum had extended over nearly
half a century.
According to the statement, Dr. MacFarlane, in reaching the conclusion
that fish constitute the sole source of
petroleum, emphasized these points:
(That a knowledge of this fact will
enable men to locate with almost
scientific accuracy new oil deposits.
That there is no danger of the exhaustion of the world's oil supply.
That the recognition of scientific
principles regarding the origin and
location of fish deposit beds will result in the cheaper production of oil
and hasten the development of ils
commercial value for motive power
and heating purposes.
Scientists who have seen the result
of Dr. MacFarlane's researches, the
statement said, declare-that he eliminates all doubt as to fish being the correct source of petroleum."    ':.. -_-,.' .

Learning to Save Does Not Mean Mere
Hoarding
Announcement. ,was recently made
in the press concerning an estate
valued at $700,000 which had grown
1 from $50,000 during fifty years of
trustee administration. Much interesting comment has been made on
the incident and it has been alluded
to as an example, of thrift.
The increased"value of the estate
is a significant illustration of tlie prolific quality of money. It shows what
funds will do if allowed fo remain untouched .during a period of years.
But, in the broader sense, the incident
is not. a lesson in real constructive
thrift because real thrift implies initiative and action as well as conservation.
This nation would not have been
what it. is today if the various fortunes and accumulations of wealth
had merely been kept intact and been
allowed to grow without the element
of personal aggression. Our railroads, cities, churches, schools and all
tho other institutions which have been
responsible for the progress"of the nation are the results not only of prudence and economy, but they also have
needed Imagination, ambition and action in their development.
A man who is truly thrifty is noi by
any means a miser, lie understands
the value-of eliminating waste. He

Old Wayside
Eighty Years
i The Knglish Post Office Department
! maintains an official of the nature of
a historian whose duty is, among other
tilings, to collect and record various
data about the service. Ono of the
most curious exhibits of the department is a time-worn oil-canvas mail
bag���a reminiscence of a daring mail
robbery. 'This bag is over 100 years
old, and was forcibly taken by an armed footpad one evening in February,
179S, from the postboy who was carrying the mails between York and Scl-
by. A reward was offered for the apprehension of the robber, but no trace
of him or the mail bag was found until eighty years later. The discovery
tiien came about in a most singular
manner. In 1S76 an old wayside inn
was being demolished at Churchill,
near Selby, and in the rafters the
workmen found, among1 other things,
the long-lost mail bag, it having evi-
edntly been hidden there by the highwayman of 170S, after being despoiled
of its contents.

The majority of tho United | tra space has been added to the ladies' dressing room, which is the acme
of perfection. - The dressing room
contains three separate-wash basins.
In front of each there is a wing mirror, both wings being movable so
that the traveller can adjust them to
any desired angle. Above each mirror is a separately controlled electric
light, and at the side a sanitary towel
case, the top of which has been' designed to hold toilet articles. By
placing the door'leading to this room
at a different angle and by making
use of a semi-circular curtain, the utmost privacy has been secured for the
occupants. Boudoir chairs permit
the ladies to sit in comfort while making their toilet.
Sleeping arrangements have becn
considerably improved by the adoption
of a separate set of curtains for the
upper and lower berths. This provides absolute privacy for the occupants of each berth and a device
which, permits the fastening of curtain of the upper berth around a bar
makes it imposible for children or any
occupant to fall out.
Particular attention has been paid
to the ventilating system.. In addition to the automatic ventilators on

States presidents, it is said, were
farm-bred. This makes a good case
for the farm as a factor in nalional
life. Vet how. often the whole rural
world is looked upon with more or
less disdain." The city head is apt to
say to the country foot, "I have no
need for yotf." Or it is as if the
branches of the tree said, "Wo have
no need of the roots."
There is no intrinsic superiority of
thc rural world over thc urban. If
rural conditions offer more for the
nascent boy life than ;..urban the
reasons should be patent to all who
can look a little below the surface.
Some of the reasons offered by way
of explanation of the country boy's
success are that he has learned to do
things, all kinds bf things, some pleasant and some disagreeable. He
learns for the most part to do them
cheerfully. His chores come night
and morning, rain or shine, mud or
dust. Iiis sense of duty is well disciplined. When he comes into contact with city life he is not likely to
ask for favors. He knows how to be
his own servant and solve his own
problems. His physical backbone is

sraption Of
Predicted la Speech
y Lord Curzon
or
London.���The whole field of Great
Britain's foreign policy was reviewed
far the benefit of the Imperial Conference in a three-hour speech by the
Foreign Secretary, Marquis Curzon.
The premiers' sessions are held in
secret, and only the section's of Lord..
Curzon's address dealing with-' the
Ruhr difficulty and" the Lausanne
Treaty with the Turks were allowed
to reach the public.
Both these questions were reviewed
at great length, the foreign secretary
going into details of the negotiations.
With regard to the Lausanne Treaty,
he admitted that when "he went to the
conference he had only hoped to ser
cure the freedom of the Turkist straits
for commercial vessels, whereas the
treaty guaranteed freedom of passage
for foreign warships, subject to a reasonable limitation in numbers, while
thc Rlack Sea was no longer a Russian
preserve. - "
He admitted- that he was riot so sat-
isfied with the position of foreigners
-and .trade in Turkey under tlie treaty,
but he thought the Turks themselves
would be the greatest sufferers from
this, ..and that tliey would learn
through experience that the ne,w Turkish state was dependent upon foreign
resources and assistance. He justified the policy followed^by the allies at
Lausanne of conceding certain points
to the Turks rather than breaking up
the conference atid-resorting to war.
.The task confronting Turkey" was a
heavy one, he said, and she was like- j
ly to experience great, disillusionment
and disappointment, but "in making
what, will be a great, experiment," he
added, "she starts with a complete absence of resentment on our part and
with a sincere expression of good will.

By German Court
Leipsig.���Germany's highest court
shows little mercy for men arraigned
before It for treason in the great war.
Gerhard Strey was recently given a
life sentence for having betrayocTTns

German army and went over to fhe

He thought Germany's abandonment
of passive resistance should, have
come three months ago, but he sus-
jpected that delay was due lo the belief that no German Government.could
survive such a &urrender,-:ind. whether
���Chancellor Slresemann- would survive
was still uncertain. ^       ,   .
The speaker said he -would not
grudge France and Belgium their victory _"it it is a \ielo_--y," but he doubled whether they were any nearer the

of the available markets of the world
al the Canadian Club here, Lord Birkenhead, former Lord Chancellor, said
until substitute markets . could be
found, bread and butter could not be
found for the working classes of Great
Britain.
Great Britain had lost Russia because of its economic upheaval, he
said; -the United .Slates because of
the prohibitive tariff barriers; Germany and Austria because of the
breakdown of their exchange; "and
France and Italy In a lessor -but still
in a comparable degree.

iri" spite of the enormous' advantage Tof
the-United Stales, London, is stil! the.
financial heart.of the world," he said.
Washington.���The resignations ot
United States Ambassador Harvey at
London ancl Child at Rome, submitted
for private reasons, ancl under agreements reached with the Harding ad-'
ministration, have been / accepted,
marking the first, change in the United States diplomatic service since
President Coolidge took ollice.
Ambassador Harvey will quit his
post about the first of ��� year. Ambassador Child, who has either left or
is about to leave Rome for the United
Stales, will not go back. None of the
United States ambassadors or ministers, the state department said, in
making the announcement, has any
similar agreement limiting his leim
of service so far as known.
The only explanation of the resignations given in official quarters was
that in both cases the ambassadors
had a few months ago reached agreements1 with President Harding as to
the /length of lime they would continue at their posts, in both cases
there have been intimations, however,
that the ambassadors were finding
their position unduly burdensome in a
financial vyay and that they felt they
must give attention to their personal
affairs.        .    . ? ���    .
There was no official word available
as to successors, President Coolidgu
might send to fill the posts.

had'a larger total in sinking funds
than all the rest of the provinces of
Canada combined. Sinking funds
provide for the taking care of
obligations and surely that statement shows that no stone has been
left unturned to protect the public."
The minister maintained that the
fir^al test of the stability of a province or of a business was the
financial standing of either. In
this regard he pointed out that
British Columbia bonds sold for a
higher price in the world markets
than that obtained by any other
province.
