derived therefrom. It is expected
that many from outside points will
join as the Board has been formed

were elected for the ensuing year;

New Checker Board
A Winnipeg, printer, home ifrom
the war, has thought an improvement in the old-fashioned game of
checkers, doing away wifeh the old
double corners feo the respective
right hand of the opposing.players,
and transferring a safety ground to
to the centre of the board, says the
Winnipeg Tribune. .;���"-...
- The probability. is that, some
think it; is time for a revision of
one of.the most ancient of man's
games."
Sixteen hundred years before the
birth of Christ,. Egyptians were
playing- checkers.; Thjey did. nofe
calljtjhat; nor_.did the Englishor.
Scotch who preserved the. game in
Britain. They wilt Bpeak of ife "as
"Drafts,"- bufe it is checkers to
every Canadian who moves, the
rounded .discs from square to
square, .fehatis until, his opponent
removes them from the board.
The ; most; remarkable thing
about checkers is that the death of
nothing\else has) been .predicted
more frequently, or ; by Vas inany,
persons. Centuries ago the yonng
folks were .-saying, it was a fine
sport for :old people, bnt doubtless
it would die oufe when'grandpa, and
his gang passed away. '.Ife did.nofe,
possibly, because there always have
been "elderly people, who/ naturally
enough, 'wonld. rather, move upon
a checker .board than ,on a. more
active field; -""'"'.

Mining News.
British Columbia's mineral resources and exhibits from mines of

A. 17 mile aerial feramvsray is
about to '""be constructed near
Stewart, to connect the Premier
mine wifeh tidewater. With the
completion of this line, ife wiil enable the owners to deliver 100 tons
of ore at the seaboard daily. The
last shipment of. ore from this
mine to. the smelter at Tacoma
netted $400 per ton,*
Tfe'is reported that Frank Gorgan
'of Oroville, has struck some rich
ore on .his Similkameen valley
ranch,-The samples were taken
from~th^Peerle88~^oup,~lbcate"d
near Nighthawk, that Mr. Grogan
has owned for years. He has put
both money and labor into hiis
mine with the result he has upward of 7,000 feet of underground
work done, much of that work ex-
posinga high quality of ore. As
an example. it can be stated thafe
one place he. has driven in a tunnel 500 feefe on an eight fbofe ledge,
and at fche breast of that tunnel a
sample of the ledge will assay better than 835.to theton. V '

Plan to Finance
Sale of Copper
'  ' -\
New York.���Plans''for' financing
the sale for   export   purposes   of
400,000,000    of   the   600,000,000
pounds of surplus copper in the
American market we're made public here  on  Wednesday  with  the
announcement   that   the   prodnct
was pledged as security for $40,-'
000,000 eight per cenfe notes of the'
copper  export   association    to   be
offered for public sale' by  a banking syndicate headed  by  the Na-   '
tional City Company and the Guar- "
antee Trust   Company    of    New
York. c
; This is said to be the 'first large
public loan made in this country,-
tp be secured specifically by a certain amount^of an essential commodity as well as fehe firsfe big
movement by American companies
to take advantage of 'the opportunities offered under the Webb
Export Trade Acfe to invite public
participation in the financing of
foreign trade. __
The heavy accumulation  of surplus copper  was the result of the"
sudden ending of the  war and the
inability of European consumers to
take    their   usual    requirements.
The. 400,000,000   pounds is  only
about three-fourths of the ' export
trade done  by  this country   lasfe
year and, in  the opinion <qf'pro-,,,
ducers, if marketed over a reason-  f
able period,  it will_ easily be ab- :
sorbed.    The present  rate of pro- ,
duction is said to be below the de-.
liveries of copper in 1919 and 1920,
:fS^JJRg.ft .farfeberhea-yy^accumula-
tion  improbable.    The notes "to%e'i
issued for the loan are being offer-
ed at prices to yield from 8 to.8:30 ""
per cent,
"In the rempval of this 400,000,-   ���
000 pounds of surplus copper from    .
the American market,"   said John;
D. Ryan,  president of the Copper-
Export Association,  ."a very important   step^ is   being   taken to-. /
wards stabilizing the copper mar-  X
kefe, both here and   abroad.    The !
current price of 13 cents a pound, -i
compares with an  average, market   ''
price   for   refined   copper   of 16f-:'
cents.over the lasfe twenty ,-years, -
and-with arlowrecord price "during'fV
that period of.11 cents.".

repeated faintly ,and gripping his

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
LESSON'FOR FEBRUARY 30V
THE WISE AND FOOLISH VIR.-
.GINS. ;t       f''S''
This lesson is. a part of the wel|
known Olivet discourse, giving a prophetic view of the course of time from
its'uttcrincc, just beforc the crucifixion to the .second .'advent of Christ.
The .order of events in that time are
roughly speaking as follows:
';��� 1. The moral condition of the world
during Christ's absence (24:1-14).
This is the period .covered by the parable of chapter 13. V -
, 2vThc appearance of lhe Antichrist
<|24rt��26). JV
3.-The great advent (24:27-31); in
which there will "be migli-ty convulsions of nature, the mourning of thc
earth's-tribes,,and the gathering of
the elect. s
4. Warnings to God's people in. view
of the great advent (24:32-51), the
time of advent unknown and unexpected.
5. Instructions to saints in view of
the unexpectedness of His coming
(25:1-3,6).
6. Thc judgment of the nations (25:
31-46).
The ��� present lesson is one of the
two parables designed for the instruction of the saints in view of the coming of the Christ. ^ It has a continuous application in the present time (I.
Thessf 4:16-18; Titus 2:11-13).
I. The Foolish Virgins Took Lamps
��� But No Oil With Thei^ (v. 3).
. ' 1. Lamps signify Christian profes-
sio'n (Matt. 5:16), and oil, thc Holy
Spirit (Zech. 4). .Having the lamps
and no oil sho%ys that they were professors, of religion without possessing
its reality. ' As soon as a man is regenerated. the. Holy Spirit takes up
His abode with Him. The proof-that
one is a child of 'God is that he has
the Holy Spirit dwelling within .him.
"If any. man have not the Spirit of
Christ, he is  none of His"      (Rom.
8:3).     The foolish "virgins may have
been of good moral    character,    but
they  were 'unregeuerated.
2. The wise virgins possessed both
lamps and oil (v. 4).     They made a
profession and backed it with" a real
life of righteousness.   These are" the
true, believers.    Both the wise and the
foolish   virgins   slumbered and slept.
Their eyes h*d grown heavy and they
fell   under    the spell of sleep (v. 5).
This shows that as the Christian age
lengthened   t)ic   rcal   and professing
church   would   cease looking for the
coming of thc Lord.      It is unspeakably sad that so many even of God's
saints,   wise virgins,   should  give  tip
the expectancy of the return of the
Lord. ���       '
II.  The Coming Bridegroom  (vv. 6-
'12).     _    .-,>
l.-The midnight cry (tj. o).    In the
midst-   of    the'  night when all were
asleep the "cry was made, "Behold the .    --.= - -, ��� -        -,..-��� .    *3.
... ���   it , I petite, weakness and diuzinees should
bridegroom, comcth. go ye���out to meet, ^e heeded by mjddie-aced women, and
liim."-'   How sad it;is that the church   let Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
-    -       Salmon Pack For 1920.
Thc total salmon pack' for British
Columbia during 1920 was 1,187,616

in a case or %. half-pound tins.

Bouncing the Blues
Success  in  Business  Only. Achieved
by the Man Who is Full of-
Gumption and Go,
Dr. Stanley L. Krcbs, of New York,
delivered several addresses in Winnipeg last week and his references to
"Bouncing the Blues" wcrc timely
and worthy of repetition.
"A man who" is afraid is a coward,"
he stated, "and thc coward is a man
whose efficiency is always dropping.
Success in business and thc happiness
that comes, with it arc only achieved
by the. man who is full of faith, pep,
push, grit, gumption and go. Con-
ditions.may not bc satisfactory at any
specific time, but, wc can change thcm
by displaying thesc qualities^v^Wc
should not simply wait for conditions
to change but put our shoulders to thc
wheel and change thcm. History
has proven conclusively that man-
made problems can always be solved
by man."���Canadian Finance.

Hints for Board of Trade
The Home Circle
The idea seems to exist among us that to be polite to
each other in the family circle is foolish and like putting
on airs. We must rid ourselves of this notion and act on
the principle that whatever helps to make our intercourse
pleasanter outside the family circle should be brought into
use there. We should avail ourselves of any and everything that can be used to advantage in our daily intercourse. It is no exhibition of airiness to say "thank you,"
or "if 3-011 please. " These little courtesies are indications
of refinement, and costing nothing, they help to make the
wheels of life move more smoothly. It is not in elaborate
attempts at politeness that true gentility consists. It is
in the simple, honest expression of ,the genuine feelings of
the heart which is interested in the welfare of others.
In   order   that   the  Greenwood
Board of Trade may be better able
'.     to';:pply itself more  vigorously  to
yy mot-ing the best interest of  the
y x   and   district we are herewith
: vVig a few ' pointers' which might

Our men of wealth and inlluence did not startwith any
cash capital. They went to work with their plow, the
hoe, the jack plane or axe, and in time their capital
brought them a rich harvest. Ah! but there's the rub;
you don't want to work. You want money on creidt so
you can jDlay the gentleman, speculate and end your career
by playing vagabond. You want to marr}' a rich girl
who will support you, while you wear fine clothes, smoke
cigars, and be a gentleman of leisure.
Young women have the same longing to get away from
their native tow.us and live among new, scenes and changed
surroundings, that boys are possessed of."-- They feel the
weight of local enviroments, even more, than the opposite
sex, and one frequently hears the remark, "I wish I were
a boy, that I could have some freedom." Thisr marks a
critical period of a young lady's life. She needs, more
than ever before wise and loving council, and the sypath-
etic companionship of a true friend; and there is no friend
like a mother in unselfish, untiring devotion. Girls, tell
your mother o�� your hope's and ambitions, and you are
quite-certain to receive advice which you can accept with
profit, and which will do you good.
