Magpie Minstrels
A crowded house enthusiastically
greeted the famous Magpie Minstrels at the Rock Creek Co-Operative Hall last Monday night, when
then presented their second annual
concert. One hundred and eighty
eight dollars was taken in at the
door and after all expenses were
paid $164 was realized for the'

The Bketch entitled ."a pair of
lunatics" was exceedingly comical
and very well presented by Mr.
andJMrs. Bodman.
There were eight minstrels in
the troupe and all were suitably
blackened and dressed and everyone had��his particular bit to do.
H. Moll was the centre man while
Paley Wilson and B. P. Hardcastle
were the end men. Then we noticed
E. P. Rock, who sang two songe,
both being encored. Rich. Norris
is an old favorite in comic singing
bnt his beBt was his rendering of
"Oh Lucky; Jim." Major Gray
and Capt. Davis were good and had
to respond to encores. H. Moil
and Paley Wilson Bang a comic
duet very creditably and they were
both exceptionally good in their
acting and solos. B. P. Hardcastle
amused the. audience with two
comic songs. There were two
other singers but from a distance
it was hard to distinguish who they
were, their make-up being so good.
Mrs. Douglas-Hamilton was the
accompanist and performed this
difficult role to perfection.
As a whole the concert was
snappy and the Magpie Minstrels
are deserving of the highest praise
and have retained thair merited
reputation.> There -were- over. 30
people from Greenwood at the
show and all are loud in their
praise of the kindly reception.
The concert was brought to a
close with the singing of the
National Anthem. After which
the hall was cleared for dancing
and a real good time was had by

Hon. Charh-s Si.cwari has made his long and eagerly awaited statement to
J'aWiamcnl oui lining llie immigration policy of the Dominion Government.
Tint' K'iiienif'iii lias, however, signally tailed i.o arouse any enthusiasm either
in i'liriiniu'cnl or throughout, the country; in fact, taken on the whole, ii has
proved a grievous ili.-appolnlvnent I.o all who were expecting real action in
regard to lliis subject whicli is admittedly of such vital importance to the
I'utuiv de.velopmeiii   and  prosperity ui' Canada.
The lengthy delays bffore flic Minislct's annouiicciuenl liad given rise to
strong hones ilmi ,i 'ar-reaching i'ik! comprehensive, immigration policy was
being fvulvril. These hopes have been dashed, because there is nothing new.
original or vigorous in llie plans laid before I'aiiiaineni: on fhe contrary, ihe
poiiey outlined is .n timid, and so palpably follows fhe lines of least resistance, ihat it has called forlli slicing c.riiicism from even the staunc.he.st of
Liberal newspapers-and outspoken opposition from Government supporters in!
the Commons.
\'o one will attempt lo deny the I ruth of .Mr. .Stewart's statement, thai ���
anyone who could formulate an iiiiniigra/ion policy for Canada that would bo
satisfactory to all people, would need lo be a second Mose.s. Mr. Stewart j
talks opfimislically ot securing 2ihi.oi.iii immigrants I'or Canada this 'year, 'mil ,
if that number is achieved it will be. not because of llie. Government's plans,;
but in spite of them aud because people cannot, be wholly'kept away from j
And, after all. what are 200 000 new solders in a country of Canada's
immense area and almost incalculable wealth of undeveloped natural resources, and which is now about ihe. least thickly popuIa.te.il country in the.
world? Two hundred thousand additional peopb- can be absorbed in Canada
almost without being noticed, especially as if is an admitted fact thai, this
Dominion loses tens of thousands of people annually to the I'nited States.
This Dominion Should aim af. receiving 200,000 I'rom the Jhitish Isles alone, j
and as many more from all oilier couulites combined.
At a time when Australia is gelling thousands of I'.rifish settlers under
the Umpire Settlement, scheme, the Canadian Government hesitates to adopt
a really effective policy whereby this nonunion would receive. .Its full share
of 'immigrants froni the Old Country. Instead, the Government seems to
place its chief reliance in the Canada Colonization Association. Granted that
lhe Government, should utilize to lull advantage any and all reputable agencies for die obtaining of settlers, such as the Association referred fo. ihe
C.L'.l!.. Canadian NYitiiinul Railways, and the Umpire Settlement scheme, these
should be but auxiliaries (o the main Government effort.
Apparently the short-sighted altitude adopted by the leaders of organized
labor on lhe question of immigration is largely responsible for the weak-
kneed attitude of the Governmenl. Labor, as has been repeatedly pointed
out in this .column, is standing in its own lighl. No sane Canadian desires
to see wages reduced in Canada below thai, which will guarantee, to the worker not merely a decent but a. good standard of living, hut the fact remains

The crew, it is claimed, can .assemble the wings, fit them, and mount the

machine, which is able to fly 500 miles
without alighting, is a direct result of
the German submarine experts' desire
lo render sea commerce raids even
more destructive than in the war.
Their idea is to free the big, oceangoing submarines from their ''blindness' owing to their low position on
the water, a disability which'led to
the destruction of so many raiders in

Does Away With Soundings
New  Searchlight  Has   Been   Used  By
English  Pilot
The latest nautical invention now in
use on a Newcastle pilot boat;is a machine which throws a beam of light
to the.sea bottom allowing the depth
of the water below the ship 1o be j
gauged. Soundings may thus be done
away with. ,
The invention is of -unusual importance since it may be usefully employed by the big liners in entering shallow waters.
The searchlight is worked through a
hole in _tho lower part of the ship
while an observation window is placed
nearby through' which the beam of
light may be seen. A mirror is set
at the end of a long observation tube
running vertically through the ship to
the bridge. By working a handle an
officer can lake any angle of the pro"1
jected beam and by a single calculation measure the_depth of the water
below.    .

��� Experts who have recently made ��� a
review of Canadian" trade report that
Canadian business continues to improve in xnost districts, and prospects
as a whole are regarded as very encouraging. Most of the leading~whole-
sale centres are busy shipping out
spring and summer merchandise, and
a satisfactory number of orders .are
being received for later delivery. Surplus labor Is being steadily absorbed,
arid the outlook in the building, iron
ei, paper,".ami pulp, "lumber,

Limitation  of Armaments
France   Will. Fall   in   Line   if   Given
Time 1
More - than ten months Is 'it since
tho United Slates Senate ratified-almost unanimously the naval limitation
treaty, which was one of the fruits of
the Washington conference for thc
limitation of armament. Some four
months later, Japan followed suit;
then Canada, India, aud the Union of
South Africa assented to its provisions, and.a few days-thereafter Great
Britain gave formal approval to tnein.
And now Italy has gone on record as
favoring its terms. France alone rd
mains to act. And certainly that
country will be heard from, to the
satisfaction of all, "if it is given a
little more leeway. It is easy to
condemn, but it were welllf a keener

Few Lepers in Canada
Only   Seventeen ,As   Compared   With
2,000 in States
Itev.-'.JI. N. Konkie, Secretary for
the whole of Canada for the mission
of lepers, says that at present there
aer two thousand'lepers in the United"
States, according to estimates mado
by medical authorities. . In Canada
there are only seventeen lepers segre-^
gated in two leper asylums, one on the
west coast of.British Columbia, about
fifteen miles from. Victoria, arid known
as D'Arcy Island, and the other at
Tracadia, off the coast of New Brunswick. There are estimated to-be
about two million lepers in the world,
scattered among alt the countries.
When asked what results liad been
obtained from the new cure for leprosy announced some time ago, IMr.
Konkie said that what they called a
'temporary cure had been discovered
and that some good results had been
accomplished from it. It could not
yet be called a permanent cure, hoiy-

At the Lester. Institute in London,
years of experiments in the study of
scurvy have shown that the slightest
trace of this disease results in definite
changes in the"structure of the teeth.
We have .long known that the mere
presence of bacteria does not mean infection. To have bacteria become.ac-
tive w;e must have a point of entrance
and a.lowered resistance.
Scurvy lowers the resistance or :.he
teeth by causing changes in the tooth
structure; and so encourages the activity of the bacteria of decay. In
addition, the lowering of the vitality
of the membrane surrounding -.he
tooth, causes a loosening of the teeth
in their sockets, whicli will result in
Iheir total loss if the disease i.s nut
checked. j

by lack of proper nourishment.^ We j

In 1904, Sir Robert Baden-
Powell, the originator^ of the Boy
Scouts, began scheming some
means of putting the spare time of
boys of eight years and upwards to
some practical, instructive, and
recreational use.
His scheming took him back to
1901 to bis experiences in South
Africa where be brought together a
group of men and ran them along
non-military lines, instructing them
in woodcraft, nature study, cook
ing. and camping. This body was
divided in patrols of bix, with a
leader for each and a senior leader
over all; Responsibility! was thus
given to leaders, and emulation between patrols- produced a good
spirit and high standard of efficiency all round. The human side
was appealed to and the men were
trusted on their honor, , to a very
large extent, to carry out their
duties. V Their uniform for field
work consisted of the! cowboy, hat,
shirt, green tie and shorts. Badges
were worn for proficiency in different .lines of work. VWV.:V"'-''���'
He decided. to adopt similar
methods1 on ; a... boy-sized scale to
promote, citizenship, ...character,
obedience, trustworthiness, self-
reliance, thrift, 'observation, cleanliness, unselfishness and courtesy:
a practical kknowledge bf ��� how to
deal. with accidents through7 first
aid; how to signal by 7Morse and
semaphore, light .and: sound; how
to: improvise.. bridges for. small
streams; how to fell and log trees,
build Vlog huts and ahelters of.
nature'si materials:" howVVto" make
camp, and cook, for .a period of
timej- and numerous other things.
In this he found that: it was altogether unnecessary to adopt military tactics; Therefore; this was
left entirely ont of Scouting. . '���:

The Meddlers
Meddlesome, people are not
necessarily malicious���they may
even be well-meaning���bat the
harm they do is none the less real.
Knowing how to run other people's
business is not always so much a
gift as an affliction.���Ex.

"HAT is one o�� tbe finest big
same and fisliins' sections of
North America and one of the last
great stands for big game, lies within easy reach of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in the Cariboo district of
British"Columbia. Here, as nowhere
else on the continent; are .found in
'abundance the bear, grizzley, brown
and black; the moose' and caribou,
and the wavy mountain goat and
sheep. The cougar is often seen and
heard and the smaller fur bearing,
animals make a trappers paradise of
"this vast virgin territory. As-will
be seen from the picture above, the
fishing is superlatively good; it is
the fishing country of the west7
"Who is the man with soul so dead
and. bent on irksome chores, who
hath not sometime to him said, 'I'll
v seek   the  Great   Outdoors' ?"    Each
. year an .-increasing number of hunters -and fishermen are absorbed by
the district.Jaut so vast and extensive
Js it, that there" are yet parts of it'
that have never been visited by'the
hunter, and streams.that have never
. had a line thrown-over-them.' To
reach the Cariboo district one usually
leaves the railway at Ashcroft from
which place, arrangements having
previously heen made, one starts out
by automobile over the famous Cariboo road to Quesnel Lake, Harpers
Camp, Horsefly Lake or one other
of the numerous camping sites. The
road, which winds among the foothills i'or hundreds of miles, climbs
to an' elevation of 5,000 feet and
drops gradually to below the 2,300
foot level by the lakes, was made
famous by the horde of gold seekers
who passed over, it in the days of"'49.
The old road houses built ln those
days are still there, and while many
of them are used as headquarters
for the large ranches in the district
they afford- simple but comfortable
accommodation on the trip.-.
From the camps one can just
paddle along the still, black, g'reen
.bordered streams and lakes over
whiclrthe snow capped ranges tower,
or one can sit at ease by the camp
fire and watch the,, sun sink behind
the hills, set ablaze with its glory,
listening the whlle'lo the soft rustle
of the wind in the tree tops and the
gentle plashing of the water on the
crags. If one is of ;a "more agresslve
nature one can, accompanied by a
careful and well tried guide, strike
through the wilderness in search of
its natural denizens, or, armed with
rod, fly'and other bait, angle to the'
hearts content. One may spend
weeks, making short trips by boat,
canc-e, or saddle horse, fishing in the'
lakes and 'streams .near by, and
getting back to camp each night, or
travel with the- necessaries for bivouac and commune with the wilds
for days or weeks at a time.
The Cariboo hunting and fishing
grounds are located in the Great
Interior Plateau, lying between the
Rockies and the Cascades, east
of the Fraser River. Ashcroft, the
jumping off. place, is on the nialn
line of the Canadian Pacific 203
miles east of Vancouver. 7 Equipment
for trips can be purchased there or
at one of the various hunting centres
in the district close by. Guide and
Outfitting companies cater to every
necessity and the "Cariboo" 7 and
other lodges adequately care for the
wants of the business or professional
man who does not care for an extended hunting or fishing trip but
desires to get away from something
or everything for a HfcJlfL_^^^^i>
