Double Drowning
An unfortunate double drowning
accident; occurred on febe Kettle
river near James Lake last Sanday
afternoon about 4 o'clock, when
Frank Maida, agod 19 years, eon
of Mr. and Mrs* M. Maida, of
Fife and E. W. Simpson, aged 37
years,, of Grand Forks, were
drowned.
They had been hauling ties from
the camp at James Lake to the
river and after unloading decided
to have a swim, and went into a
shallow place. Frank Maida waded
in first but went beyond his depth,
the river being about 40 ieefc deep
at this place. He could not swim
and he was seen to flounder by his
brother Rocco, who was present,
and* called to Simpson who. immediately went in after the drowning man. Simpson only made
three or four strokes when he
threw up his hands and sank.
Rocco ran to Howard Smith's and
gave the alarm. Mr. Smith and
G. S. Walters ran to the river but
���could, not see anything of the
drowned men. Mr. Walters went
to Rock Creek and notified the
Provincial Police.   -
A raft was made and a number
of men got on ib and floated over
the eddy. John1 Walsh saw
Simpson's body and dived, for it
bring it to the surface. Constable
Stewart had some men with a drag
neb and Dan Rose and Arthur
Mellor found the body of Maida
the next morning. Dr. W. H.
Wood, coroner, viewed the bodies
and decided that an inquest was
neb necessary as the drowning was
purely accidental. The bodie3
were removed to Grand Forks for
burial.
&
There were a lot of people in
town on Saturday evening, but
not many dixring the day. Many
came in for the picture show, and
as a rule people like the evening
trading. It is at night that a
great many people do their shopping.   '

and Mrs. Hugh Murray, of this
place, was-ftrarried at Cranbrook

United Farmers Picnic
Dominion Day was fittingly
celebrated at Ingram Bridge
when a most successful Picnic
was held under the auspices of
the Greenwood District United
Farmers. There was a large attendance, every section of the
district being represented. The
sports were keenly contested considering the warm weather. The
refreshment stall did a big business, ice cream, fruit and soft
drinks being in great demand.
The day's enjoyment came to a
close with a Dance in the Co-
Operative Hall, Rock Creek, in
the evening. A large crowd at-'
tended and Bush's orchestra supplied excellent music for the
occasion.
The committees in charge
worked hard and it was mainly
due to their efforts that they
accomplished gvhat they intended.

Rock Creek Notes
(Too late for last issue)
On the evening of Tuesday,
June 23rd, a most enjoyable .time
was held at Rock. Creek under
ihe auspices ot the Somen's Co-
Operative. A. M. Stephen, Canadian Poet and Public Reader,
with Thos, McLean, baritone, presented a splendid programme of
readings and music. An .interesting feature is the fact that Mr.
Stephen who is now one of Canada's
foremost poets, at one time, back
in 1905, taught the. Rock Creek
school. Mr. McLean who is Wesfe-'
ern Canada's foremost baritone,
pleased his audience by his selection of stirring numbers while Mr,
Stephen's poems, many of which
deal with characters familiar in
the pioneer life of British Columbia, were highly appreciated. Mrs,.
Arthur J. Foxall of Vancouver
was a7 perfect accompaniste and
added greatly-to the effec��-of Mr.-
MaeLean'a^numbers., 7
Mies Miriam Gabel motored from

Northland Trader Made
Navigation Record
�� 	
Steamer Arrived at Fort Resolution on
June Eighth
"This is the earliest spring that the
north' has ever lniovn so far as navigation in the Slave' River is concerned," writes A. L. Sawle, secretary-
treasurer or the Northern Trading Co.,
to the head oflice of the firm at Ed-,
monlon. Mr. Sawle is on his'annual
visit to the posts ol' the company
strung all along the north flowing
waters, and at the time the letter was
mailed was at��Fort Smith, making
preparations for the trip to the Arc-
tie.
He says tlii^l the trees and gardens
are two weeks"earlier than usual, and
the steamer Northland Trader made a
navigalion record in arriving at Fort
Resolution on June S. The vessel took
down freight antl passengers I'or the
Great Slave Lake post, returning again
to Fort Smith to take on her cargo and
passengers for th'e far north. She
was to> leave Fort Smith outward
hound on June 20, and was to be preceded several days by the company's
auxiliary schooner, which it is expected will bo the first vessel to arrive at
the delta of the Mackenzie River.
The motor vessel Pioneer will make
a voyage to Fort Norman with cargo,
on the return of the Northland Trader
to Fort Smith, at the end of her first
Arctic voy_i>_p.
A Brighter, More Hopeful Outlook
So much lias been -hi-nrd daring the past two or three years about hard
limes in Canada, witli reports of unemployment., emigration to the United
States, etc.. etc., that ii ls a welcome change to now read from week to week
of steadily improving conditions and to note the more lufpeful tone prevailing:
It is undeniably true thai during recent years times have been exceedingly
trying and difllculc for'many people, and that heavy responsibilities have been

Hydroplane To Patrol
Northern  Manitoba
Country Will Be  Mapped  For Use Of
Survey Parties
. A fleet of seven. hydroplanes, stationed at Victoria Beach' air station
will be thrust into varied and Import-,
ant service during the summer season.
According to Major B. N. Hobbs, commander of the squadron, the planes
will bo used for detection of forest
fires, but of greater significance will
be the successful programme of mapping out of the entire north_counli.y
stretching from the Lake of the
AVoods lo beyond the western boundary of Mauitoba.
Photographs from tho air will bo
taken of the country almost as far as
the Hudson Bay and down the Nelson,
the Churchill and the North Saskatchewan Rivers. The region north of
Thc Pas will be paid particular attention as far as Stanley Mission and
Renlson Lake. This topographical
survey will be very useful to survey
���parties sent out by the Federal Government.
The squadron will also assist In
lhe paymeift of treaty monies and will
convey the afents lo Island Lake,
God's Lake and Cross Lake reserves,
saving tl>e agents many long and tedious journeys by canoe and portage.
All the planes . are equipped- with
Rolls-RoyC2 engines and are fitted up
witli the latest devices for work from
the air, making tho station better able
.lo take care of their duties than last
year.

Making Business Good
Country   Needs   Man   Who   Goes   Out
���   After His Share
Business is a great deal better than
the random talking of a lot* of people
would make it appear.
The ntan who says that business.is
rotten merely because that expression
is the briefest one with which to answer an idle question, is about as reprehensible in his course as is the man
who makes the same answer in order
to cover up his personal failure to get
out.and get business, that can be had
by .those "who enterprisingly, go after
it..V'- ""    .   .;
.There is iols of business doing in
spile of 'tiie parrot, talk of persons who
do: not-reflect upon what they say.
The man'.who sails in. and sees to it
that''he gels his share of available
business 'will-find, that theie is'a decided pi tile-up in nearly "every line of
trade, but that birds'more enterprising-than parrots are gfcting'most of it.
"- The "man -who sails in and .makes
.business good is the kind of man "lhe

Sunlight and Health
Statistics Show That-Tco Much^Sun-
> light Is Conducive to High
Mortality Rate
The prevalent, idea lhat we cannot
have too much sunshine for health is
challenged by W. 11. Dines, F.R.S.,
who points oui in Nature that many
well-known statistical facts are opposed to this belief. In European
countries the death-rale is "highest
in the south and lowest in tlie north,
and the British Isles and the Scandinavian countries are especially favored. Though llie duration of possible sunshine is nearly the same in
hot hpails, the intensity is far greater in the south. English records Cor
1881 lo '1912 being at hand, comparison was made 'ot the summer sunshine and summer death-rale of the
different yea'is, and this showed that
the iota- most sunless summers (1SSS,
1S91. J!)10 and 1912) all had an.exceptionally low death-rate, .while tin*
sunniest summers (1S77, 1S99 and
19 U) had moio Ihan the average number of deaths. It is contended that
the lacl thai ultra-violet rays aro help-
1 nl iu certain diseases does not prove
that an excess of sunlight is generally beneficial, it is thought to be hardly credible that sunlight alone'Should
be prejudicial to health and the explanation is suggested that it is the
heat, with which sunshine is usually
associated, that io harmful.

Although it is only 18 years ago
that Alberta became a province, its
population fths increased fourfold,
while the grain yield has increased
twentyfold. Ev��n at the present low
prices, the total agricultural products of Alberta in 1923 were worth
$223,000,000.
Reports concerning the apple
crop in the Annapolis Valley show
that the entire crop, including the
estimated local consumption, was
1,816,000 barrels. It is reported
that 70,000 apple trees and '3,000
plum trees will 'be set out in the
valley this spring.
The railways of Canada up to
the end of last April earned ?6,000,-
000 more than they did for the
corresponding period in 1923. This
favorable result is due entirely to
the fact that the people hav_> been
doing more business. All' authorities are agreed that such a condition  means   growing  trade.   ^
