-Women sometimes do'foolish
things in their homes.- They
work at things that might- be
left undone until ihey are weary.
With them weariness leads to
peevishness, and peevishness to
temper, and temper to scolding.
It is better for a woman to go to
bed when she is tired than scold
her husband. It- was alright
when public opinion was aglow
with the righteousness of chastisement. The broad hand is a
sure cure for ererything, but we
live ia an age of ptohibitlon, and
the right medicine is not always
convenient.
Acfing for shareholders of the
Providence Mining Company, Mr,
R. Smith, of Mayers, Stockton and
Smith, this morning received permission from Mr, Justice Morrison
in chambers to call a meeting of
the shareholders of the company
for the purpose of transacting business. The meeting will be held in
Greenwood on June 28th next.
Behind the application is alleged
to be a dispute between .the present directorate and the British
Columbia shareholders of the property. Last week an action for
foreclosure by the "debenture holders was started, and it is alleged
that the debentures are held largely by the directors, the majority of
whom ref ide in Chicago.
British .Columbia-' shareholders
stated that contrary to the provisions of the company's act which
says that an annual general meeting must be held each year, the
present directorate has .not held
any general_ meeting since February, 1921. /

Late Martin Anderson

Services are being held in the
Presbyterian Church every Suii-

' Last winter the Social Club of
Anaconda brought that place
into social prominence as" being a
centre., of great social activity.
On Thursday, June Sth, it was
again-brought to-the front" when
about SO people gathered in the
school house for a joint social
evening for Mr. aud Mrs. J.
Wood, of Nelson, and a farewell
to Dick Pasco, who left on Monday for Copper "Mountain; ~ The
party for Mr. "and Mrs. Wood was
arranged by Mrs. T. Hartland,
whilst A. E. Wanke was responsible for the farewell to Dick
Pasco. The evening was most
enioyably spent in dancing, singing and recitations. Supper was
served at midnight and the party
kept up until an early hour in
the morning.
The churches were once community centres. Iu small towns
aud m the country that position
is almost lost to them now. The
auto and the Sunday picnic haye
not done all the mischief. In
the days when the follies of the
church consisted of feathers and
furbelows the congregation filled
the edifices to overflowing, but
when German theology with its
vague questionings and iasidu-
ous demands came, the' scattering commenced. A manufacturer
once wrote an article the title of
which was "There is no Hell."
He took it to his printer, who refused to publish it, and at once
lost the considerable printing of
which the manufacturer -had the
command. The publisher refused to publish that article in
his paper because he knew the
chu��ch people would not stand
for it. The same church people
would not lose much sleep over
that now. Of course there is
much of the sew theology that is
inspiring, but no people but the
Anglo-Saxons have the gift of
grafting the new upon the old
without revolution. So the push-
fulness of ~our foreign theology
made a mess of our coaatry
church centres.
Martin Anderson passed awaj
at his home in Anaconda on Tuesday evening after a short illness of
only a few days at the age of 55
years. Heart failure "and kidney
trouble was the cause of death.
He was born in Sweden on March
20th, lg67 and came to the States
when but a lad of 18 years.
Twenty-three years ago he located
in this district "and was_one of the
few survivors who helped to build
the smelter in Greenwood and was
foreman in the sample mill for a
number of years.
Ha was- a man of excellent
habit8,-fine moral character, and
sturdy constitution, and he continued to be active in hia. accustomed pursuits until a few_ days
before his death. He met most of
the conditions and-situations of
life with a joke. He was a practical matter-of-fact man, bu1 had
his own peculiar way of extracting
merriment from life as it went
along, and he was -not disposed to
worry about matters that could be
bettered in other ways. ThiB
cheerful spirit remained~with him
to the last. When he died, practically a young man, yet ready to
be gathered to hia fathers, the
grief that was felt, over the close of
his career was widespread and
sincere." His beet monument will
be the good report that, he has left
behind him in the community in
which he has lived for nearly a
quarter of a century. He believed
in the fatherhood of Qod and the
brotherhood "of manY *''V*.* " V
He was married to Miss, Anna
Olson on July 1st, 3903.
He is survived by 'his wife to
whom the sympathy of the entire
community is extended.
The funeral services is being
held this afternoon by the Knights
of Pythias, G. B. Gray being the
officiating clergyman.

Immortality of Courage
Sir
Effect Of
Soviet Rule
Huge Task to Put Russia on Her Feet
Again
The vast amount o'f reconstruction
necessary before Russia can assume!
her place as a producing nation is
typified in Odessa, where more than
00 big factories are rounding out
their second year of idleness.
While the Communists appear to
be "coming to their senses," as one
observer expressed it, the bitter
economic lesson of the past, four
years has left its imprint on the industrial llusisa of old. Mere are to
be seen many powerful examples of
how easy it is to destroy and how
difficult it will be to build up.
Odessa once boasted two huge
sugar relineries. Together they employed nearly 10,000 persons, but today they are idle and almost in
ruins. Another 2,000 men were employed in the big rope manufacturing
plant on the outskirts of the city. Tlie
factory will have to be practically rebuilt before it can open again. The
brick-making industry had 20 factories in and near here in pre-war days,
but all of them are falling to pieces.
There were once three shipbuilding)
plants,, the largest    employing    S.000 I
~m.cn and turning out vessels ot 3,000   ��* Scott
tons and more.     The Soviet Government now operates it, at one-eighth
capacity.     Three   chemical   factories
have  not  been  operated  since  1917,
and a French factory for making soil
phosphates shares tlie same fate.     It
once required eight big plants, to can
the fish caught in the Black Sea. The
fish are still there, but thc factories
long ago ceased to function.
Two jewelry. factories have been
closed for several years, as have
three plants for making'' vegetable
oils and two others where matches
wero made in more prosperous days.
The making of sugar ^anrt grain bags
was a big industry here, employing
thousands of persons. Odessa also
had factories for the making of cloth
products, nails, cement, machinery,
glass, shoes, paints and varnish, cork,
linoleum and carpets, but gaunt, decaying buildings are all that is left to
recall that time.
A   Letter  from   Captain   Scott  to
James Barrie
Sir James Carrie has just made one
of the most remarkable speeches of
modern times.
He was being installed as Rector of
Glasgow University, and seized the
opportunity to give the students and
others present a straightforward glowing talk about the true courage.
In the course of it he said: ���
"I should like lo read you some
passages of a letter from a man of
another calling, which I think will
hearten you. -I have the little filmy
sheets here. I thought you might
like to see the actual letter; it has
been a long journey, it has been to
the .South Polee. It is a letter to
me from Captain Scott of the Antarctic, and was written in the tent you
know of, where it was found long afterwards with his body and those of
some other very gallant gentlemen,
his comrades.     Tlie writing is in pen-
Women and Immigration Work
Officers and. Conductresses Useful
Part of Organization
Miss G. M. Perry, National Immigration and Travellers' Aid Secretary
for the Dominion Council, Y.WIC.A.,
j'who has been actively engaged in
immigration work at the Atlantic
ports for four years, - addressed the
tenth annual conference of Young
Women's Christian Associations at
some length in Toronto, aud in the
course of her talk referred in terms
of highest praise to the Women's Division of the Federal Department of Immigration at Ottawa.
'���Canada," said Miss Perry, "now
occupies a unique position in organization and development, in having a
women's division as an integral part
of- the Department of Immigration*.
This is the outcome of calling together the Women's Canadian Council
of Immigration, and it now consists of
a staff of Canadian women at Ottawa,
two women in the commissioner's of-
cil, still quite clear, though toward j nCe at London, one at Liverpool, one

(waiting for them. It begins:-
are pegging out in a very comfortless
spot���Hoping this letter may be found
and sent to you, I'write you a word of
farewell. 1 want you to think well of
me and my end.' After some private
instruction too intimate to read he
goes on:���'Good-bye���I am not at all
afraid   of the   end,   but  sad   to  miss
">v'ls' at the Atlantic ports, and  a staff of
���'We j conductresses   to   accompany   special
immigrant trains from the ports."
Miss Perry also praised the services
of the conductresses, who have been
placed on practically all the Atlantic
liners by the steamship companies.
"Canada has every   reason   to    be
proud   of   the women's division, and
what, it   has been able to accomplish
many a simple pleasure which I had j in   the   bettering   of conditions, and
Season for Prairie Chicken Extended
The total number of big game animals' killed last year in ihe province
o'f Saskatchewan was only 327 as compared with 2,200 in 1900." Last year
there were but 409 moose captured as
against 1,200 the previous year. The
'season for prairie chicken this year
will- be for a month" instead or the
customary-two weeks and. the shooting of partridge, prohibited for many
years, will be allowed. Beavers, too,
are becoming so plentiful in the northern pact of the province that the
council at Dundurn has declared an
open season on the animals.
planned for the future in our long
marches.* .... We are in a
desperate state, feet frozen, etc., no
fuel, and a long.way from food, but it
would do your heart good to be in our
tent, to hear our songs and our cheery
conversation .... Later'���It is
here that the words become difficult���
'We are very, near the end. ....
We did intend to finish ourselves
when things proved like this, but we
have decided to die naturally without."
"I think it may uplift you all to
stand- for a moment by that tent and
listen, as he says, to their songs and
cheery conversation. When I think
I remember the strange Alpine story of the youth who fell down
a glacier and was lost, and of how. a
scientific companion, one of several
who accompanied him, all young, computed that the body would again appear at a certain date and place many
years afterwards. When that time
came round some of the survivors re-
turned''to the glacier to see if the prediction would be fulfilled���all old men i
now; and the body re-appeared, as
young as on the day he left them. So
Scott and his comrades^emerge out of
the white immensities, always young.
"How comely/ a;thing is affliction
borne cheerfully, which is not"beyond
"the reach of the humblest of us. What
is beauty? It is these hard-bitten
men singing courage to island home
crooning of their deeds to you who are
to  follow them
providing protection and care for the
newcomers to our country," said Miss
Perry. "   -

The French altitude toward the

that M. Dubois reaffirmed the stand
he had previously taken in the reparations commission.
The opinion that appeared to prevail among the bankers as they began their informal discussions was
that the view Taken by tbe principal
creditor, * the French Government,
ought to .be the controlling factor.

wealth that makes for the strength and greatness of a nation.

Lift Your Feet
. Quit blaming .Providence, your
friends or your enemies for what is
due to yonr own carelessness or
stupidity. There are -a lot of
barked shins and broken noses due
60 shuffling or not< looking far
.enough ahead. The wonder is
how eo many escape without
broken .necks.. Plenty are just
now floundering in the morass of
business difficulty who might have
avoided the mess if they had put
on the brakes a" little sooner.
"The prudent looketb well to his
going."- Where are your feefc
leading you outside yoar business
affaire, .young man? These are tbe
dftjB when the god of pleasure is
Luring many to destruction. If
ever there was need of a warning
against" the menace., of emptiness
add selfishness ' it is to-day. You
can't serve business and pleasure
any more than God or Mammon.
Get your eye on the course and
lift your feet.���Ex.
