covered cay. late wife and, myeelf

my wife's death and .1 feel I have
to.thank.you for looking;after iny
interest required to,, reinstate the
policy .after; I; had allowed it tb
lapsebecauBe one of your competitors gave me to understand that it
was doubtful if the $1000.00 would
be paid if my. wife died while the
20 year Endowment-. Joint Life
Policy7.was in; force. The best
proof that this waa untrue is the
cheque you have just given me and
which was paid over without the
slightest delay on receipt of advice
that the policy was-a claim.
The personal interest yoa took
in my case fe proof enough to me
that you are the right man to do
business with and yod may be sure
T will recommend yon   and   the

anyone thinking of life insurance.

Hospital For The
Greenwood District
For a considerable period many
discussions have been heard in
reference to establishing a Public
Hospital in this District. Midway through their Women's
Local of the United Farmers
made a commendable effort in
this direction, and" other outlying
towns have always shown a desire
to co-oper^e with any concentrated effort. That such an institution is a necessity is proved
by the great number of patients
that are usually found in the
Grand Forks Hospital, who hail
from this district west and south
of Greenwood.
At a special meeting of the
Greenwood.City Council, this live
issue was brought up for discussion, and although the City
Council cannot take the responsibility of establishing a Hospital, they were able ���to put in
motion the necessary machinery,
which no doubt will resolve itself
into the establishment of. a Hospital Board offDirectors, drawn
from the district, who will take
charge of the establishment.
It was suggested that the but-
lying towns of Midway, Kettle
Valley, Rock Creek, Beaverdell,
Bridesville and other places be
represented on the Board by each
appointing a Director^ It was
also thought that each of the
outlying districts, would wish to
associate themselves with the
movement by donating a bed or
room in the Hospital, which
would- carry their name. It 'is
hardly necessary to remind the
people of the district that the
-success of the Hospital depends
entirely on their strenuous cooperation and sympathy, both
morally, physically and"" financially, and if all creeds classes
and societies bend their efforts in
this direction, the success of the
Hospital is assured.
Dr. A. Francis, of Armstrong,
who has been relieving Dr. C. M.
Kingston, of Grand Forks, has in
a great measure helped -to bring
the establishing of a Hospital
prominently before the public,.
and is willing to install an Operating Room in conjunction with
the Hospital, and the. whole
establishment will be uader the
guidance of Dr. Francis, who,
will be the resident physician for
this district.
Announcement of a general"
meeting of the district will ba
made in the near future.

Thousand Years Ago
Greenland lias come info ihe public
eye and the newspaper headlines lately through Mie exploits of the United
States aviators, who made it a stage on
their round-1 he-world journey. They
had no bleaker landing pjace, and
none in which a mishap would have
exposed I hem to greater hardships and
perils. Though today Greenland is
a synonym I'or barren desolation, its
principal pioducts being glaciers and
its main exp..rt>. being icebergs, it was
the seat of a nourishing settlement
long before Columbus' voyage of dis-
covery.s In itssouihern fiords. Eric
and Ked founded a colony nearly a
thousand years ago. Sheep, cattle
and horses drove on ils green pastures, wiience ii look the name now
mocked by the icy nYoitiilaius which
cover ihe interior. The hardy Norsemen hunted the reindeer on land and
the seal and white, bears drifting on
ice floes along lhe shore. Af sites
|slill marked on the map at Godthaab
and Julianshaab were the chief settlements, of which clear tracts remain.'
As late as ihe fourteenth century'there
were about 300x farms, two cloisters
and sixteen chur dies, one of which
was lhe Episcopal" residence. This
little community existed ,in political
independence until 1201, when it surrendered to the Norwegian Crown.
Communication between Greenland
and the mother country, whicli was
intimate I'or a long time, ceased at the
beginning'of the fifteeiilh century, aiid
the colony gradually expired. The
last-Bishop to live'in the island died
in 1377. But nominally the lie with
Europe'continued, and when the union
of Norway and Denmark was dissolved in lSl'l Greenland was claimed by
lhe Danish 'KingV There is scientific
evidence of a radical change of climate during the: Middle Ages, ascribed
to cosmic causes affecting a large part
of the earth. Bodies buried 600 years
ago have recently been found in a
frozen state, and-it is contended that
they were buried in unfrozen ground,
as the corpses were decomposed while,
the wrappings remained intact, covered,by grass roots.-
Today the population numbers
about .10.000; of whom only 800 are
Europeans, mostly'Danish ollicials, ihe
trade of Mie colony being a ".Government1 monopoly. ' Unless there is another.change of climate the Eskimos

HIGHER PRICES
FORWHEATARE
NOW INDICATED
Calgaryf���"Statistically,' the world's
wheat  crop justifies    higher    prices.
_Crops are poorer in. all the.-chief countries,- and Europe will want a. lot ot
wheat, maize,.oats and barley, so that
. unless farmers rush their grains on
the. markets of IhV consuming countries ton rapidly/the^' will see very j
fair advances within llie nest three or
foui"months, wheat possibly reaching
$1.50 or more in Western Canada."
This is the gi7; of the grain situation in the .world at. present- as gathered by G, U. "Walker, of Sidney, N.S.AV.,
a member of the grain firm of Lin^Jey
and Walker, who is roiiirning to Afft-
tra.liu. after visiting the Wembley exhibition and spending many weeks'in
practically every grain-growing country between Sweden and the borders
of the Balkan states. ..Mr. Walker

All of Russia,
has a poorer crop than last year, and j^ )Q- c6jnnumicaUng^ilh Canada,
the. recently  published report of the |.(n(j twowij.h
wheat situation by, Sir James Wilson, j (ijrectjOUS_     "
In  the London Times, .was criticized;
in London papers by Mr. Walker while
he w'as in. London.     The estimate of
the exportable surplus of wheat in the
various countries is too high, according to Mr. Walker,   whose   estimate,
after actually investigating the vari-
'ous .wlieal/growing   areas,    including
many of the    wheat-growing    states
.across the line, as well as iu lCurcyie,
is about-1,000,000 quarters, or 80,000,-
000 bushels.'less than that~cstiii"i'ated
by Sir  James  Wilson.'   >Mr. Walker
cuts,   down    the   amount ascribed to
Australia, as well   as   to ..practically
every other country, with the exception, possibly   of Argentina, which he
considers cannot be    estimated   with
much-accuracy yet.>-
-Mr.   Walker    believes that Canada
may export the amount indicated, 21,-
000,000 quarters,'or 168,000,000 bush:
els,   if   the   price is higher, Inn not
otherwise.     He is of. the opinion that
the price level-was too low last, year,
compared with/ the world    crop,   and
that, as much will be needed for consumption, with less "sifpply available.
India is credited with .an   exportable
: Kiirpius" of .]0,000;000 quarters' by Sir
.Tamos Wilson, while Mr. Walker cuts
this in. half as a generous allowance.
Importing countries, he believes, will
want a little more perhaps than they
required iast year. ' N '

age-old dream of Turkey and many
Christians, who aie discontented with
the present Russian regime, are helping the movement. .Repeated interruptions of the telegraph lines in, the
Caucasus is a sign that disorders continue. Red troops barbarities are

is extending -.to the trans-Caucasus,

where such movements havo ' been
pretty frequent since the Soviet regime was established. There are
strong signs of the existing trouble in
the Mohammedi-n World growing

Although Canada owes' its prosperity, and even its
national life to the Railroads which -stretch across
the Dominion and send feeders north and south into its
rich   agricultural  and mining  countries,  the  Railroad
- history of the country does not yet cover fifty years.
In'their short existence, however, Canadian Railways
have progressed, and been so forced to meet the increasing
demands and requirements of the country that their
development has been extraordinarily rapid. Not only
were the engineers employed by the Canadian Pacific
compelled to press the laying of steel to the Pacific at a
pace hitherto unknown, regardless of the many difficulties
and  obstacles  which   they   encountered  both  on  the.
' plains and in the Rockies which were once thought.im-
passable, but competition' with other lines, and the
demand of the travelling public for service, comfort and
- 'convenience -.has stimulated the activities of the operating departments to such/an extent that in the matter
' of equipment 'and service railroads in this. Dominion are
-'not surpassed on the continent." ../WW yxix:,,
��� "Experiences gained in "construction days" were not
-  lost, nor.has the standard of efficiency .which signalized
... _ the Canadian engineer been lowered, and today Canadians claim to be the'world's leaders in railway construe-
.tion maintenance and'operation.' -���.--���-���
" /--  Using unusual'and.effective methods, the Canadian
Pacific recently laid over 100 miles of 100 pound rail at
. the rate of a mile or more an hour securing total daily
mileages.up-to 10.miles and-over and thus, establishing
��� another =recprd..;" This~while the ;road .was under - heavy
traffic. First came the train with the new rail. By means
ofspecial handling appliances the rails were distributed
along the track, outside the old steel. Following the
"distribution of the new steel, the rails were picked up by
a special gang, set up end to end, and bolted into two
rail units. Next, the inside spikes were pulled by a gang
detailed off for this work, and the old rails were pushed
in towards the centre of the "track. The new rail was
then lifted into place and spiked down against the
shoulder of the old tie plates before being bolted into one
continuous stretch. This ensured that the alignment and
surface of the track remained undisturbed.-,The new tie
pJates were inserted later.
* Perhaps the most interesting operation was the
moving ofthe old rail to the outside, of the track where it
could be picked up by the salvage train. The discarded
steel was not unbolted,,being one continuous piece, sometimes half a mile in length. The end of this rail was
thrown outside the new track and as a heavily weighted
truck was pushed slowly" by a powerful engine, so the
phlanges on its foremost wheels shoved the old rail over
the new to the outside of the track ��� a simple operation,
but one which, in course of a few years saves the Company thousands of dollars. As a matter of fact, this system of re-laying track, practised first by the Canadian
Pacific'on the Megantic Subdivision, has attracted the
attention of railroad officials all over the continent,
many of whom have sent representatives from as "far
away as Texas to secure first hand knowledge of it and
the special unloading equipment used.    ' /
