The Banff Orchestra Dance
held in the Masonic Hall last
Thursday night under the auspices of the G.W.V.A. went beyond all expectations, both from
the gay and merry crowd and
from a musical viewpoint. The
music was superb, every one of
the artists being a soloist at his
own particular instrument and
all combined made an orchestra,
the like of which has never been
heard in Greenwood before. The
platform was fixed up for the
occasion and the hall beautifully
decorated. It is years since the
hall looked so nice.. The dancers
had a gala time, the crowd being
evenly mixed everybody had lots
of dances. Nobody sat out unless
they wanted io and the music
was so hypnotising, tantalizing
and mesmerizing that everybody
just simply had to dance, encore
after encore being demanded. A
fine supper was provided at midnight over ISO being catered to
and that all had lots to eat speaks
highly for the ladies who had
charge of this part of the programme. The Banff Orchestra
are very well pleased- with their
reception and may probably pay
a return visit before they open the
summer's season at the C.P.R.
hotel in Banff.
Political Meeting
There was a good attendance at a
political meeting in the Greenwood
Theatre on Friday night when Hon.
J. Hart, Minister of Finance, Hon.
Dr. J. Du McLean, Provincial Secretary and Minister of Education,
and E. C. Henniger, M.L.A. for
Grand Forks were the speakers.
Mayor Gulley occupied the chair.
Hon. Dr.'McLean on being called
upon spoke very briefly contenting
himself with explaining the reason
why the premier was unable to be
present and disabusing the minds
of the public in thinking' that an
election was in sight, for he emphatically stated that there would
be no election for two or three
years. He hoped soon to have an
opportunity of visiting the district
again when he would go more fully
into the issues of the day.
E. C. Henniger spoke at length
on criticisms made in the Conservative press stating that it was all
"bunk" and if any part of it was
true he would be just bb ready to
criticise the Oliver administration
for he was independent, but after
carefully looking into the "criticisms
he honestly believed that the present government was conducting the
affairs of the province wisely and
Hon. John Hart was the speaker
of the evening and delivered a very
witty and able speech. Dealing
with the allegations in an anonymous pamphlet whioh he said looked like the work of Mr. Bowser
and Mr. Ealing. Mr. Hart Btated
that the figures given for the cost
of the civil service, were/incorrect,
being $1,600,000 instead or"$2,000-
000 as alleged.
At Victoria they had one great
problem, and if it were removed
the duties of finance minister
would not be very arduous. This
was the Pacific Great Eastern.
Mr. Hart went back to the inception of the P. G.E., and the terms
on which the original contract was
drawn. When the present government took office it knew something
was wrong with the P.G.E., and
held and investigation under oath.
It was discovered that parts of the
road bad never seen a contractor,
and that money had been paid for
mileage that had not been built.
Sworn evidence showed that
money had been paid into the late
government's election fund, Mr.
Bowser being at that time leader.
Mr. Hart said that four conservative members took Mr. Bowser to
task for this, and he was said * to
have replied; "Gentlemen, forget
my past, my future is spotless.
The minister referred to the con*
dition of the province's finances
when the present government took
office, and stated the treasury was
depleted. To catch up on sinking
funds, the present government had
to borrow $4,000,000. He referred
to the Government's attempt to
borrow in various markets, its total
requirements being $6,000,000.
Although plainly due the late government, this borrowing was
charged against the present administration.
-8The borrowings of the govera-
amoant to a hell of a lot of money,"
said the minister, -'but when ex-
plained, they do not seem eo
touch."   ,
"Mr. Bowser says the P.G.E. is
Premier Oliver's baby. The premier says it ia Mr. Bowser's. I
dont care whose it is, I have to
take care of it," said the minister
amid laughter.
Was the sums spent in agricultural loans  reckless expenditure?
asked Mr. Har&��
Millions were spent to open up

the country with roads.    Was that
reckless? '_
Was it reckless to spend $2,000,-
000 to the returned men who
wanted to go on the land? The
government was able to borrow
more cheaply than the men, and
gave them this advantage. A sum
of- $3,000,000, was ioaned~to "the- "
farmers who wanted similiar privileges.
In both these eases the minister
said, the government had full security, and would not lose a dollar.
The Dominion loaned $1,500,000 "
to the province, for use under the
housing scheme, and the province
loaned the money to the municipalities, which loaned it to returned
men for building purposes.

the P.G.E. Do you approve of
the other borrowings or not?"
-Mr. Hart claimed Mr. Bowser
was willing to change his policy to
suit each riding, even to build a
railway into the Pouce Coupee
The minister commented upon
the criticisms made on him for
borrowing in the United States,
which even the Dominion had had
to dof and for borrowing on short
terms, the latter enabling the province to secure benefits from falling
rates of interest.

Some men and women enjoy

Addressing the seven hundred or more Saskatchewan municipal Reeve's,
councillors aud secretaries-treasurer assembled in annual convention a few-
days ago, Hon. C. A. Dunning, Provincial Treasurer and Minister, of. Municipal Affairs, after reviewing the difficult financial conditions now confronting
Western Canada, and sounding a note of optimism and encouragement, concluded his remarks by saying:
"Officials  of  municipalities  have  a   duty  to  their  people  lo  perform,  a
service.     These are difficult days for men who are in public service whether j
it. is municipal, Provincial, Dominion or Empire-wide.     There is a psychology |

Ruth  Law Carried First Bag of Mail
to Philippines
'Ruth Law, most famous of woman
aviators, is through. Ten years-of
airplane flights _ and air circus stunts
throughout the United States and in
other lands have given her all the
fame she wants. Now she will be
just Mrs. Charles Oliver, a wife.
It was Rodman Law, her noted
daredevil brother of-movie fame, who
attracted Ruth Law. to aviation. She
began preparations in 1911 and in
1912 made her first flight, in one of
the old machines which* had the driver's seat in .front of the motor, unprotected from the elements.
For four years she appeared ia exhibition "flights, none of longer dura-
j tion than 25 miles. ' Then she sprang
into fame with a sensational flight
from Chicago to New York, breaking
the American crosscountry record
and non-slop flight record. She flew
from Chicago to Binghampton', N.Y.,'
on the first leg of her journey, a distil nco of "590 miles. Her time from
Chicago lo "New .York was S hours
12.3 minutes.
During the war she tried every
means to get into tho army air scrv-'
ice without success. - Then she
went to France and sought to enter
thc French air service, but the
French could not be persuaded that
air battles should be fought by a
woman. ���    ,/
In 1919, Miss Law. went to Japan.
The Aero Club of Japan offered' her
a ruby for each time she looped the
loop over Tokio. She brought back
2S rubies. ..Sin inaugurated the Philippine air mail service, carrying the
first bag'of mail to Manila.
Mi-- Law seemed to lack nerves:
She.has even stood upon the top of
an airplane, driven by' another, while
the machine looped the loop, and she
raced Gaston Chevrolet in Toronto iu
1918. flying just above the race track,
as that famous automobile driver set
the pace below. '    '.,'������

servants to do. Keep on serving. That is the way the world will be saved.
It will not be saved by theorists and shouters but by the men who stick to
their job, do their duty and serve with the very best that is in them."
The absolute truth of this declaration cannot be successfully challenged.
Any person in public life today who is merely striving to achieve some personal ambition, or to gain some selfish end, or is actuated by aiiy motive
other Ihan a sincere desire to render service, will prove a failure. No matter, how earnestly he may -strive for the public good, and even- though he

you:  vengeance belongeth to God.

Thc- donations were received at the
office of Frederick Bradshaw, chief

written by George Bucbanan, and
in spite ot its age is still in 'good condition. In her letter, Mrs. Duncan
stated the fossils were discovered 40
feet below the surface of the Bulyea

The methpd ' of review will largely
be determiES?d by the taste of the
teachers and the grade in the school
concerned. To the writer's taste, two
good -methods are available: the biographical and the summary. In using
the biographical, the -lives of four
great prophets, Elijah, Elisha, Jonah
and Amos may be considered. These
four men are connected with nearly
all the lessons of the quarter. This
method can be used to good advantage in nearly all the grades of the
school. In the summary method the
principal fact of each lesson with its
leading, lesson.- should be set forth.
This method can be used to gooci" advantage in the adult /departments.
Tho following is a suggested summary:
Lesson I., Rehoboam refused lo
grant the request of-'the people for
the lightening of the burdens of taxation! Because of this ten tribes under the leadership of Jeroboam Revolted and formed another kingdom.
The most- effective cure for social and
political unrest is*justice by the rulers to those ruled.
Lesson II. Elijah, after announcing
to Ahab the withholding-of rain for
a term of years, fled and. was fed by
the ravens and by the widow at
Zarephath. God adapts Himself to
the circumstances of His servants,
and sometimes in the most unlikely
ways provides for His own.
Lesson III. At the request of Elijah,
Ahab called the people together to
witness, a supreme challenge of Baal
worship. Faith in God will stand the
most severe test. 7 The fire of God is
the unfailing sign which differentiates
true from false religioii,
..Lesson TV. Elijah, though brave before the 450-prophets of Baal, fled for
his life from Jezebel. God dealt most
gently with his" discouraged ��� servant.
We should learn from this that frequently we. fail in our strongest point.
; Lesson y. Naboth refused to sell his
vineyard to Ahab, whereupon through
Jezebel's plot he was murdered, and
Ahab took possession. Nations and
kings "should respect the rights of individuals. :'-..'..
.Lesson VI. When Elijah's work was
fmished,_ God took him to heaven by
a whirlwind. '"-Elijah had once requested death, but God had a better
way for him to go to heaven than by
way of death.
Lesson VII: The Shunammitc
Woman, seeing Elisha passing by on
errands for God, was moved to provide a coritfortable lodging for hint,
whereupon Elisha sought to recom-
-pense her 'by promising that God
would give her a child. Not infrequently has the prophet's chamber
brought blessing to the home.
Lesson VIII. At the command of
Elisha. Naaman dipped himself seven times in the Jordan and was healed of leprosy. In order to be healed
of the leprosy of sin, human pride and
vanity must be put away and obedience rendered to God.
Lesson IX. The king of Assyria sent
a great army to apprehend Elisha because hc had repeatedly informed the
king of Israel concerning the movements of the Assyrian army. When
the Lord opened the eyes of Elisha's
servant, he beheld the mountains filled with horses and chariots of Are.
"The angel of the Lord^ encampeth
round about them that fear him, and
deliverelh them." "Lord, open our
eyes!" .        ~.��
.Lesson X, At the preaching oi
"Jonah"," tlfe-\vicked~city "of Nineveh repented and God showed mercy. God's
mercy and forgiveness should move
us to 'preach the gospel to the
Lesson XI. The children of Ttrael
prided themselves in their security
and gave themselves -to luxury and
sensual indulgences. God sent Amos
to warn them of the judgment which
must follow. The Lord will bring the
ungodly to judgment for their ungodly living.*
" Lesson XII. In- due '.time^ the prop-
iiecy of. Amps came true. The Assyrians came .and - carried the chile!'en
of- Israel' into captivity, from which
they -never''-returned; - Rejection of
God and the.despisingof His wwship

Helium Gas
Empire's Largest Source of Supply is
In Alberta
Helium gas, which the United
States Government has just ^decided
shall be the only gas used in its future dirigibles, exists in only one part
of the British Empire, and that is
Canada; and its largest source in'the
Empire is at Bow Island, Alberta,
where, 1,000,000 cubic feet is wasted
monthly in natural gas, according to
the report of the advisory council for
the Scientific and Industrial Research
ot Canada. Computed ��t 10 cents a
cubic foot, which is a low valuation,
states the regort, the value of tho
helium so lost at Bow Island amount's
to $1,200,000 a year. The tone other
place in the Empire -where this rare
gas is produced is in the gas wells of
Southern Ontario, which gives'forth
only one-tenth the amount supplied at
Bow Island. /
