The Voice Is The Soul Of Telephoning
When you complete a long distance conversation yon experience a
satisfaction that does not follow under other circumstances. Your message
has been conveyed as you would have it, aad you knovF exactly how it has
been received by the person at the other end.
The reason of the satisfaction is the intimacy which the telephone
gives. It is your*voice and the voice in reply that makes long distance
telephoning real conversation.

' The strawberry Is on���ripe and
luscious and full of temptation.
He tempts young people to eat so
much of him that hives will
come and ridden the skin and
leave a feeling of unrest. Through
the strawberry nature leads her
children through many temptations. The strawberry picker is
tempted to scantily fill the baskets and cheat the purchaser; the
housekeeper is tempted to buy to
the ruin of her bank account, and
her children are templed to commit tbe sin of gluttony. Truly
the strawberry is responsible for
much human suffering, nevertheless he is the king of the berries
and his many subjects are - ever
ready to prostrate themselves before him.    y ������    ���
The anuual Dominion Day celebration of the United Farmers was
held at Ingram Bridge under most
favorable weather conditions,   and
has passed into history after a very
active day starting early and  ending   at   daybreak    the    following
morning.     The   attendance    was
good and the sports keenly contested and interesting.    The committee in charge  handled  everything
in a first class manner, the refreshment booth run by R.   A.   Brown
was very much in  evidence.    The
two baBeball games played  by the
Boy Scouts of Greenwood  against
the Midway juniors,   and  another
game against Rock Creek   juniors,
were very interesting and attracted
a great deal of favorable comment.
Every boy was on his toee  all the
time and very few errors occurred.
The Greenwood   Boy Sconts  won
both games, defeating Midway by
4 to 0 and Rock Creek 3 to 0.
Tug-of-war, Midway against
Rock Creek. In this contest there
were 10 on each 6ide. Midway
won both trials after a long obstinate struggle. Both teams were so
eagerly matched that it was a
greatly exciting contest arid hung
in the balance for a long tiine (that
is the teams did anyway.) The
explanation is that the two locals
are much more used to pulling
together and when combined they
can lick creation.

Sir  Michael  Sadler Has Great Praise
For  Educational  System  of
Sir Michael Sadler, who was accompanied by Lady Sadler and Miss Gilpin, headmistress of the Hall School,
Weybridge,     returned     to     England
on    the    C.P.R.    liner    Empress    of
Scotland, on the conclusion of an extensive  tour  iti   Canada.      The  visit
was   made   at   tho   invitation   of   the
Canadian Council of��Educa.ion.
Sir Michael Sadler said that he had
had   an   opportunity   qf. studying   the
educational system fully from coast to
coast.     Miss Gilpin and he addressed
representative   meetings   at   Halifax,
N.S.; Fredricton, N.B.; Montreal, Toronto,  Ontario;   Winnipeg,  Saskatoon,
Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria, B.C.,
Calgary,   Regina,   Fort  William,  Port
Arthur  and   Quebec.      They  also  attended the educational conference at
Toronto.      As a result he had come
to the conclusion that education was
one of the greatest tie-beams of Canadian life.     It was a clamp of national
unity.     Canadian people were making
generous    sacrifices    for    education.
Canadian  universities   stood  out  like

Steamship's Laundry Better Equipped
Than Many On Shore
The washing of soiled linen, which
involves such turmoil and fatigue in
the ordinary household, is performed
so unobstrusively on board a modern
steamship as to escape all notice.
Few ocean travellers would be prepared to say whether laundry work is
done on board, yet every day is "wash
dav" on a liner at sea, and,  both in
* '
capacity and equipment, a steamship's
laundry often excells- that serving a
provincial town. Space and quiet
operation being important factors, it
is not surprising to find that electricity is pressed into service. An electric laundry recently installed by a
British firm on board a' well-known
liner contains an electric motor driving a washing machine with water-
saving tank, and hydro-extractor for
removing water by centrifugal action.
In addition to soap ���������nd soda dissolving tanks, hand washtubs for special
articles, and a full equipment of
clothes bins and accessories, there are
a number of electric irons, and a collar and cuff machine with electrically
heated roller. The arrangement of
the various machines, ironing boards
and so forth takes into the consideration the value of space and the fact
that the equipment has to be kept
working however rough at sea. There
is no outward evidence of the existence of the laundry. Soiled linen is
taken in at one door and clean linen
emerges from the drying room 50 feet
away. The process is just one of
those unseen but essential services
wliich helps to form the luxury ol
modern I ravel.
Allies Of Men
Many  Pueblo Indians
Working On Railway
United States Road Finds Them Efficient and Satisfactory
Four hundred Pueblo Indians today
are being employed by the Atchison,
Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company, and according to statements
from railway officials, United States
Army officers, and their own leaders,
prepared for The Christian Science
Monitor, have proved entirely satisfactory. They are rated as efficient
as other employees of the system.
The Pueblos are employed not only
as helpers and laborers, but a large
number of them are employed as
craftsmen, having worked their why
up from positions as unskilled
laborers. 7
Practical Work of Birds Is Of Great
A probable increase in both species
and numbers of song'birds, as indicated by the bird census just completed on the Wyanokie plateau in
Passaic County, New Jersey, points
to the effectiveness of governmental
and international protection of these
allies of man. Two square miles of
country were covered by enumerators,
eighty-seven species identified, and
2,984 birds were either seen, or heard
in song. As these figures represented mainly male birds, the enumerators- estimated the total adult bird
population of the census area to be
upward of 6,000.
Methods of more accurate and
thorough enumeration each year help
the figures in their natural tendency
to mount at each of the eight enumerations, but the increase in both species and numbers since 1917 in the
area has been too great to be due to
improved elliciencv of the census
alone. Similar enumerations in
oilier parts of the country havc shown
what, the Wyanokie" census shows:,
that the bird population has been
gradually increasing since the passage
of the Migratory Bird Act and the
subsequent treaty with Canada.
The Audubon Societies aud ihe
economists who appreciated the importance of insectivorous birds to
I man, those who waged the long light
for adequate protection of birds, are
vindicated on every occasion such as
the Wyanokie census. Not only is
Federal protection doing what it is
supposed to, but the increase in the
number of birds is giving more and
more people an idea of their aesthetic
importance, of the spiritual contribution that these allies of man throw in
for good measure with their practical
work in the world.

Interesting Facts About Clouds
Each  Type 'is Given   Different   Name
By Scientists
A different name has been given by
scientists to each type of cloud.
The four main types are cirrus,
cumulus, stratus and nimbus.
Cirrus clouds are the fine wisps, or
shreds of white, like thin plumes of j
feathers, often seen agaiifs't a blue
background. Usually they herald
the approach of wind. They are the
highest of all the clouds, averaging
about 30,000 feet above the earth's
surface. �� {
It is, (by the way, a common error
to suppose that clouds are at much
greater heights from us than they
really, are.
The Latin word '.'cumulus" means,
broadly speaking, a' heap', and it is
as heaps of white that one may, regard
the cumulus clouds; though often, and

"Golden Age of Medicine"
British Medical Officer Says Plagues
Controlled  By  Modern  Mettiods
Cholera plague, typhus, typhoid,
smallpox, tuberculosis and malaria
have at last become controllable, says
Sir George Newman. Chief Medical
Officer of the British Government.
The antitoxin treatment of diphtheria
has reduced the death-rate in that
disease from 29.S per cent, in 1S90 to
9.3 per cent, in 1922, which means that
200 additional lives are saved in every
1,000 cases. In 1S71 enteric ��� fever
claimed 374 lives in each million of the
population; in 1922 it was 12 in each
"We are living in the golden age of
medicine," says Sir George. "Unpcr-
ceived it is rapidly changing the face
of the world and the destinies of men.
The extension of the frontiers of life
is assisted by fresh air and sunlight
in dwellings, sanitation of workshops,
wholesome water and food supply and
the isolation' of infectious persons.
The result of this Is seen in the fact
that every child born today has an expectation of 12 years more life than
had his grandfather."

Fox  FarmingvIn  B.C.

Industry At Coast
Vancouver Island is ideal for the
breeding of high-grade foxes, according to Mrs. Beaumorit Boggs, who,
nearly three years ago, established the
first fox farm on > the island. The
farm is owned and managed by Mrs.
Boggs and her daughter. ~
With an intimate knowledge or
conditions oh.Prince. Edward Island,
they have: taken an intense interest
in the raising and care of their furry '
charges. Not a single fox has been
lost through disease or accident.
- Chased and worried nearly out of existence in its wild state, Mrs. Boggs
declares, the fox leads an easy and
well-cared-forlife in captivity, and has
a painless death by chloroform,   y'������
There are now three fox farms on
Vancouver-Island, and they haveall
proved the possibility of making tho
industry profitable.

Plans For A Combined
Voluntary Grain Pool
For Three Provinces
Winnipeg.���Decision of the United
Farmers of Alberta to organize an independent" voluntary grain pool, will
give a decided impetus to plans'lor a
combined pool of the three provinces,
it was stated by leaders of the farmers movement in Manitoba.
If the Alberta, pool can be organized in I fine to handle tin's year's
crop, there is no reason why the
combined pool cannot be pul. in

expert on such matters declared.
The members of the marketing
committee are Hon. J. E. Brownlee,
Hon. George Hoadley and Hon. It. O.
Reid, who have been gathering- information for some time past: along the
lines of co-operative selling agencies,
Mr. Brownlee will give particular attention to the legal aspects of the
case, and will advise as to the steps
necessary for organizing a workable
grain'pool. Incorporation will likely be sought under the Alberta Companies Act or else a co-operative so-
Considerable interest in the new

is not involved iu the scheme beyond
helping thus to canvass the situation
and to talk it. over in general, it is felt
that there is a good chance of securing a successful marketing system, if
things can be started in that direction
at once.
London���Marquis Curzon, Secretary
for Foreign Affairs, made a "lengthy
and important statement in the House
of Lords in reply to Lord Birkenhead,
who called attention to the seizure by
the United States of liquor on British
The Foreign Secretary declared
that there was no chance of Great
Britain agreeing, in any circumstances whatever, lo the proposal
that the United States authorities' be
given the right lo search vessels for
liquor within the 12-mile limit. The
Government, he added, was fully alive
to the importance of thecase, and all
channels of diplomacy were being utilized to find an exit, from a situation
which was undoubtedly disagreeable
and ought not to be allowed to continue.
Lord Curzon explained that it,was
a very difficult and delicate matter,
raising grave issues in both international law and policy. The British
Government was not- concerned with
prohibition in fhe United States, but
it was concerned with the treatment
meted out to British'ships in United
States waters and the degree in
which that treatment conformed to,
or departed from, practice.
He would not discuss the legal
right. ol""t.he United States to impose
conditions on foreign vessels, entering its waters, because on this subject international "law was decisive.
He next detailed the steps taken by
Great Britain, starting with a note
to the United States Government from
flie British ambassador at Washington after Attorney General ,-Daugh-
erfy's ruling that the Volstead Act ap-.
plied" to foreign ships.
"We pointed out," he continued
"that for any state, even construe-
lively, to project the operation o.f its
strictly domestic municipal law on

Would Tap Coal Fields
Railway   to   Reach /.Fuel   Deposits   in
Northern Alberta and  British
Ottawa.���The feasibility of a projected railway from the Peace River
district to connect with the main line
of the National Railway system, ih
order to tap "extensive fields.of anthracite or semi-anthracite coal" ex-
isting'in Northern Alberta and British
Columbia, is suggested in the final report of the Senate Committee, which
has been investigating Canada's fuel
Tlie committee recommends that
the Dominion Fuel Board be empowered to co-operate with transportation
and other interests with a view to.reducing freight rates, increasing to the
utmost, the use of Canadian coal in
Canada, and educating the public to
use Canadian coal.
While the difficulty of transportation of Alberta "domestic" coal to
Central Canada is not minimized, it.
is suggested that with an increased
output and mining operations carried
on the year round the cost of production would be reduced.

j Restricted Immigration
From the Orient
Ottawa Government Carries On
Negotiations With  Japan
Ottawa.���As a result of negotiations
which have been carried on between
representatives of the Japanese Government in Ottawa and the Dominion
Government, it is expected tliere will
be a very, substantial reduction in the
number of Oriental immigrants coming to Canada during the next few
months. If this reduction should not
materialize the question of further
restricting this class of immigration
may be taken up at ..the next session
of Parliament. This was the reply
of Premier King to A. W. Neill, Independent, Comox-Alberni, in the House
of Commons when Mr. Neill asked regarding the fate of negotiations between the two governments.
British Columbia wanted to know
what It must expect, said Mr. Neill.
Mr. King replied that, when the
matter was brought up by Mr. Neill
it had been pointed .out by represen
tatives of the Japanese Government
j that legislation ot that kind might be
misunderstood in japan. The Japanese Government, while desirous of
furthering the wishes of Canada, wished also* to avoid unrest in Japan.
The matter had, therefore, been
dealt with by negotiation.

"We must cease to be always giving

Grain Commission
Frank Oliver Testifies at Opening Session
Edmonton, Alta.���First sesison ot
the Royal Commission appointed by
the Dominion Government to inquire
and report upon the handling of the
grain trade in Canada, opened here
and evidence was received from a
number of farmers as to grievances as
they had found them. Restricting
combines between grain buyers and
operators, millers and banks was
charged by two of the witnesses, while
A. Chard, Freight Supervisor for the
Alberta Government, complained of
that section in the Grain Act which
limited to 24 hours the time that a
car was at the disposition of a farmer
loading grain over a platform.
Hon. Frank Oliver appeared before
the commission in connection with
the western grain route and also
spoke of the value of the Hudson
Bay route to the prairie farmer. Mr.
Oliver made the statement that the
railway grade, which has always had
to bear the brunt of the argument for
greater transportation costs on the
mountain route, is actually.greater to
Fort William than to Vancouver or
Prince Rupert. That,- is, that the
amount of actual uphill haul to the
eastern route is greater than to the
west on the Canadian National lines.
Mr. Oliver also considered that the
Government of the country should establish the principle of no discrimination between east or westbound
freight on the prairies' This was a
matter of principle and should be established by the Government, and not
by the railway commission.

Ottawa.���A conference of coal operators, representatives of the transportation companies and of the federal
and various provincial governments to
discuss methods for establishing an
independent fuel supply for Canada is
recommended in the final report of
the House of Commons committee on
mines and minerals.
It is also suggested that the conference should comprise members of
this committee and of the special
Senate committee which has been,
cossidering Canada's fuel supply.
It is suggested that the department
of mines should'undertake an educational campaign to convince the public of the necessity for making Canada self-sustaining In the matter of
coal 7 also to emphasize the value of
Canadian coal for domestic use.
The committee, reports favorably
on coke as domestic fuel and suggests that cooking plants throughout
the Dominion might assist largely in
solving the problem.
In the mallei- of transportation
rates on. coal to Central Canada the
committee recommends that the Government should undertake an independent investigation to ascertain
the actual cost from eastern and
western points.
"AVe believe that our national
railway should carry fuel at cost in
this crisis," the report continues,
"and your committee suggests that
the rates quoted are not cost rates
but much higher."
The flat issued in connection with
the Hoppe coal leases in Alberta
has been cancelled by the Govern-'
ment. This was announced by the
Prime Minister in the House of Commons in reply to a question by J. T.
Shaw, of Calgary.

On July let, the anniversary of
of the clay, fifty six years ago,
when the older provinces of our
Dominion, after for many years
carrying on their affairs as separate
colonies of Great Britain, in view
of their many mutual needs and
common interests through in their
lot together, believing that in this
way they would advance the welfare of all and work out a greater
destiny. They thus created the
beginnings of our Dominion of
Canada, which with the comiDg of
the variousjwestern provinces from
time to time during the next succeeding years, was completed into
one vast territory of wonderful resources, covering half the North
American continent. The yearn
that have come and gone since the
first of July 1867, have brought
tremendous changes, ��� immense
areas of country are now peopled
and cdeveloped which then were
practically unknown,���and perhaps?
nowhere can be found more significant evidence of the growth and
development of the country and itf=
commercial expansion than in the
story of its postal service.  - -.-

To Whom it May Concern     Anaconda School Picnic
"There is no city without a
Chnrch except the city of God,"
wrote one of the ancients.
It is possible, however, that the
country between Grand Forks and
Penticton may ere long be a
country without a minister. It is
true the Anglican communion are
well served by the Rev. Mr.
Smyth and the Roman Catholic
people are visited occasionally by
one of their priest's, but thera are
a large number of the population
who are neither Anglican nor
Roman Catholic. For the past
year the Presbyterian Church has'
maintained a Presbyterian minister
in the district and services have
been conducted regularly at five or
six points in the district. A good
number of the residents have found
it au advantage to have a minister
residing in the neighborhood and
have made use of his services wli'en
required. Comparatively few, however, attend public worship aud
fewer still make any effort to assist
in the maintenance of the work of
the Church in our midst. Now,
it has come to the knowledge of
some of the Church goers, that the
whole question of extended fields,
such as our Boundary field, will be
thoroughly investigated at the
meeting of Presbytery tobe held
in August. Certain fields, such aB
ours, will undoubtedly be closed
down and the minister withdrawn.
Can we do anything to prevent the
withdrawal of our Minister, Rev.
W. R. Walkinshaw. Is it anything to you? Do you wish your
children to grow up in a Church-
less neighborhood? If you have
anything to say in the matter, or
any regular contribution to make
toward the upkeep of the Church
in our midst, the Treasurers, Mr.
P. H. McCurrach, at Greenwood,
or Mr. R. D. Kerr, at Midway,
will be pleased to hear from you.
Parents and friends joined with
pupils and tea'cher to a picnic last
Friday, June 29th. About 12 noon
they all sat down to a very nice
spread. Everybody did justice to
ice-cream, candy and huts. When
everyone was in the midst of a
hearty feed the pupils presented
their teacher with two lovely ivory
picture frames. Miss Hopps
thanked them and promished she
would keep them on her dresser,
all the time, where she could see
them. After lunch pupils favored
all with several nice songs. Blackboards were all decorated with
drawings and paintings by the
pupils, which .were very pleasing.
About 3 p.m. all departed feeling

No ThrillS Barred
In-Buck Jones Play
Reports state that in the way
of thrills nothing is barred in
"Bar Nothiu' " a Fox photoplay
which comes to the Greenwood
Theatre on Saturday, July 7th.
No, not even a barroom scene���
that favorite centre of villainous
activity and righteous wrath in
the yester-year of Western ranch
life and romance.
Buck Jones, who has been rising steadily in favor of the picture fans, is the star, and he is
said to present some sensational
work in "Bar Nothin' " that is
unusual, even for him.
Ruth Renick is the leading
lady. She is-the sister of a sickly Englishman-in the play, and
the object of Buck Jones' affections. Miss Renick is a charm
ing1 little actress, ��� and should
prove an excellent foil for the
strenuous star.

Five-sixth of the timbered area in B.C. belongs to

Each year, it is increasing in value as the more
accessible timber is cut.
In 1922 there was received from the sale of such
timber the sum of $620,000.
This helped to keep your taxes down, and to build
up the Province.
