Kootenay Bay.���^Several Crawford Bay ranchers, including W.
Fraser,  A.  Nelson,   O.   Palmer
and W. W.  Mooney,  have combined together and  imported . a

cows and heifers.   The stock was

to spray for" is no longer a safe
one. It is. repeatedly the case that
a perfectly clear orchard one year
suffers from bad infestations of
various troubles, both insect and
fungus, the next Spring. Production must be saleable production,
not that of low grade, diseased or
wormstung fruit.
By not spraying ifc ie possible to
save approximately  $21  per acre;
but cannot a less  doubtful  economy   be   effected   in   some   other
direction?   Acre cost of production
might be reduced on orchard land
by   seeding    early    to   a    vetch
cover    crop,    shading   the    land
during   tha   early   season.    During. an  acute water shortage   one
good discing will keep the land in
good condition duriDg  the  rest of
the season.    This  will greatly reduce the number  of cultivations,
and one of the best substitutes for
barnyard   manure will  be added.

land again, work  for irrigation as

After a short illness of abont. a

in the   Grand   Forks hospital on
Wednesday   morning.      He  had
peen^ employed in ?the Pacific Hotel
all winter and a week ago caught
a bad cold and became so bad that
it was thought beet to remove him
to the Grand Forks hospital.   He
was born abont 64 years ago in
Iowa, and for a time  freighted m
Leadville, Col.    In 1902 he moved
to Phoenix   and   worked   for the
Granby Co. until it closed   down.
In 1915   he   waB   injured   in the
Granby mine which left him  partially   paralysed.^He  was  of a
quiet retiring disposition and was
highly respected by a host of old-

Every effort should be made to
maintain the productive state of
our orchards, and the value of
spraying should be carefully considered before deciding to omit it.
The revised spray calendar has
jnst been leaned, and growers are
strongly advised to study it. By
following it, culls should be reduced to a minimum; and this will
lead to a greater consumption and
more satisfactory prices.���B. H.

Aerial Thrills in
"Stranger Than Fiction"
It's lucky to begin houseclean-
ing'itf March. Those who do so
usually have good gardens.
Heaven smiles upon the industrious and gives them time to devote to their flowers and their
vegetables. And their devotion
to sweet young things puts their
whole being in tune with gentleness and kindness. Indeed early
housecleaning means much lo
every woman, and to the whole
human race.
In time we are to have iceless
refrigerators. A Toronto man has
found a way to freeze by means
of electricity and evaporation,
and has made himself a millionaire. All these years we have
been using ice to cool our food
boxes, and all the good people
have been longing so fervently
for winter cold to make the ice,
that the weather man could not
neglect their wishes, aad occasionally be. overshot the mark.
The iceless refrigerator willrbe a
great boon to us.
Of al! the nice new things that
come in the Spring time, nothing
gives more joy than a nice new
hat that matches our style perfectly. The girl that does not
get one has to love her old dad
pretty hard to forgive his stinginess or sympathise with his misfortune. Perhaps it is better for
a father to risk the poorhouse
than to provoke his daughters
scorns Bnt we are not thoroughly convinced on this point. We
do know, however, that spring
time has trials for fathers who
have nice daughters, bnt short
bank accounts.
Among   the   exciting   moments
in     "Stranger    Than     Fiction,"
Katherine MacDonald's latest release    through    Associated   First
National Pictures, Inc., and which
will be  shown  at the Greenwood
Theatre, on'Saturday, March 24tb,
ii. a battle in the air,  in which one
of the contestants,  with his parachute strapped to his back,  leaps
from the burning machine and  is
rescued_by another-aeroplane.��� It
is   probable   that   this   stunt has
never  before   been   seen   on   the
screen   and   it   will   probably  be
some time before it is duplicated.
Miss MacDonald is supported by
a notable cast of players, among
whom  is  Wesley Barry, who has
the part of "Freckles,"  a street
urchin,    to    whom   the__ wealthy
society   girl   takes   a   fancy   and
brings into her home.    The  local
management  confidently    expects
Greenwood   theatregoers   to   vote

ladies.     Tbe    many   cakes  and

excellent by the whole company.

great    praise    for   their   worthy
efforts on behalf of their hostess

of the Natural Itesources Intelligence
Service of the Department of tlie inferior, in tracing the limits of the
'habitat of the wild wood bison last

part of the range contained a number
of underground streams, the most Important ot which are the Nyarling and
Clewi Itivcrs. The country in which
these streams are 1'ound lies west of
Fort Smith on the Slave River and
south of Great Slave Lake. They
rise on the northern edge of Alberta
and flow northward, their waters
reaching Great Slave Lake through

Tremendous  Wheat  Crop
Graphic Illustration is Given of Extent
of Exportable Crop
A graphic illustration of Canada's
tremendous wheat crop is shown by
the statement that the S.S. Bos-worth,
has a possible capacity of 352,000
bushels of wheat and that to carry
Canada's 399,000,000 bushels of wheat
it would take 97-t steamships of thc
Bosworth's capacity to convey the exportable portion of the wheat crop of
tho three prairie provinces across the
These 899,000,000 bushels of wheat
would require 257,230 (-10-ton) freight
cars loaded to iheir capacity. If this
string of 257,250 cars were placed in
line together, it would make a train
1,9-16 miles long or one extending from
Montreal to a point 2(3 miles west of
Swift Current, Saskatchewan, to say
nothing of the locomotives. Allowing
35 cars to a. locomotive it would require 7,359 locomotives to haul 257,250 .
cars, 7,350 trains, running at intervals
of five minutes apart, would take 25^
days to pass a given point. Thc addition of 7,350 locomotives (average
length 81 feet, 9.�� inches) to the
257,250 cars would make the total

mercy as a warning to their kind.
There has been more than one attempt, since those bloodthirsty tiinos,
to recover ihe treasure. llut landslides have somewhat obscured its
original resting place, while the island
is so fiercely wave-beaten, and landings aro fraught with such peril that,
after comparatively brief spells of
searching and digging, hunters have
been obliged io abandon their c_uest
rather than face being marooned on
the island with a risk of starvation.
It is an established fact that, soon
after the war, inquiries were on foot
���from a source very secret���to ascertain, whether a great airship-might not
be chartered to drop ultra modern
searchers from aloft upon this 'inaccessible island, and provide them afterwards with food and other essentials by way of the air.
Then, more recently, and even while
this airship scheme has been under
review, another plan has taken shape.
This is io maintain communication between the mainland and the island, by
the use of a great, swift, multi-engin-
ed flying boat, stores being dropped by
means of parachutes, quite "irrespective of how high a sea may be breaking upon the island's rocky shores.

New Vork City consumes vast: i|iian-

any oilier kind of food, according i.o a
report of the1'Department of .Health.
Flour and bread como next, followed
by potatoes, then sugffr, ��� of whicli
every inhabitant consumes about
ninety pounds a year. The banana
leads 'the fruits in ihe amount consumed by New Vorkers, with oranges

close behind them,

follow in the order
potatoes, onions and
most popular vegetables.
A new potato-like vegetable, .the
dasheen, is gradually growing in popularity, a New York paper says. While
t.he name somehow has an Irish flavor,
the vegetable is of tropical origin, it
is said, and was brought to Florida a
few years ago and is now being successfully cultivated tliere. It has a
quality suggestive of chestnuts, which
makes it specially desirable as a
dressing for turkeys and other fowl.���

���Character  in  the  Lips
Importance of the Lips as a Guide to
it has been said that while every
other feature may be perfect, refinement or the lack of it, is invariably
betrayed by tIn? lips. Yet while many
persons judge of their acaunlntancc
by the expression of lhe eye, fnw realize ihe importance of the lips as a
guide lo character. The man who
would make a wise choice of a wife
should beware of her who lets the
corners of her mouth droop as this
denotes a worrying temperament and
11 fuult-ilnding disposition. He must
beware of extremes also, as too great
an upward curve indicates frivolity.
Lips thin arid red denote cruelty. The
too full underlip" shows lack of conscience, while lips compressed and
thin indicate that their owner is morbid; selfish and domineering. The
happy ..medium is found in the mouth
well-shaped and colored, with lho
slight upward curve which denotes
love of fun and cheerfulness joined to
sensibllitv and a staple disposition.
