this winter the citizens decided to
give a dance in their honor in the
Masonic hall last Friday night.   It
was certainly one of the most enjoyable dances   held this season,
and that is saying something for
there have been many swell dances
this  winter.     Werner's orchestra
of  Grand   Forks,    furnished   the
music in their usual fine style and
the supper supplied by the Pythian
Sisters_and others was "par excellence."    A feature of the the evening was the calling of the hockey
team to the platform and speeches
made by several of the   members.
G. S. Walters on behalf of the club
in a few well chosen words thanked
the citizens for their generous support and he thought that the hockey team had done quite a lot towards putting Greenwood  on the
map.    He congratulated the team
in. winning the Boundary and Me-
Bride cups and if the same team
can hold together for another season
he was.sure they; would  win  the

captain, made   a.  few appropriate

nor played in a town where spch
support and keen interest was displayed.    He hoped to be. in Greenwood  next   winter   as   he would
rather.play here than" for any place
he knew.,  C.   Pearson,; of Grand
Forks, was called upon and he congratulated the team on the victory.
He thought the. teams were evenly
matched but that Greenwood appeared to have the backing of the
citizens: while the   Grand  Forks

Thos. Alexander Garland an old
pioneer of the Boundary died at
his residence in Anaconda on
Tuesday, March 8th, at 11.20 a.m.,
aged 77 years, having been born in
Ottawa on Feb. 29th, 1844. The
deceased gentleman had been in
(ailing health for some time and all
that loving care and skill could do
was done, hiB cousin Mrs. Mary
Harris proving a faithfnl and efficient nurse, who, attended him
during his long illness.
The late Mr. Garland came to
the Boundary 21 years ago and
owned the property where the
Jewel mine is located. He bought
the Anaconda townsite and was
for many years engaged in the
mining and real estate business and
was always known for his straightforward dealings. Previous- to
coming to the Boundary he was a
merchant at Caledonia and Portage
la Prairie where hiB wife predeceased him about a year ago.
Besides his brother, Nicholas
Garland, of Toronto, he leaves
behind him seven daughters and
three sons viz: Mrs. D. B. Hanna,
Toronto, C. R. Garland, E. P.
Garland, Winnipeg, A. T. Garland,
Kaslo. Mrs. Ogletree, Portage la
Prairie, Mrs. Roxburgh, Mrs. F.
O. Sissons, Miss Garland, Medicine
Hat, Mrs. P. J. Harwood, Brandon and Mrs. J, B. Kenrick, Saskatoon.
He was a man of generous impulses and never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer. He
had borne adversity bravely and enjoyed prosperity quietly. He had
filled the various relations of life,
as son, husband, father, brother,
friend, and filled them well, Who
can do more?
Another name is stricken from
the ever lessening roll of our old
settlers. It must be so; these tender human ties cannot be severed
without a pang. Yet in such a
death there is really no cause for
grief. ^ His life work is done and
well done. He had passed the
three score years and ten and
wearied with life's duties and
cares, wearing of suffering and
waiting, he lay down to rest. How
much this community owes him
and such as he, it is impossible to
estimate. But it is not within the
scope of this brief article to do so;
suffice it to say he lived nobly and
died peacefully. A few of us will
live as long or as well, and fewer
yet will the Angel of Death greet
him with ouch a loving touch.
The funeral service will be beld_
from the Undertaking Parlors,
this afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev.
W. H. Redman, officiating, and
from there the remains will.be
taken via C. P..R. to Kaslo for
..���'.;Mrs. Harris and.his, son A. T.
Garland will accompany the body
to Kaslo.-..' '-;���

such a case is to give temporary relief. If thc temporary teeth are lost,

Precepts That Lead to Success and
Contentment. /
I believe that the country which
God made is more beautiful than rthe
city, which man made; that life out-
of-doors and in touch with the earth
is the natural life of man.
I believe that work with nature is
more inspiring than work with the
most intricate machinery,
I believe that the dignity of labor
depends not on what you do but on
how you do it; that opportunity
comes to a boy on the farm as often
as it docs to a boy in thc city; that
life is larger and freer and happier on
thc farm than in the town, that my
success depends not upon my location, but upon myself; not upon my
dreams, but tipon what I actually do;
not upon luck but upon pluck.
I believe in working when you work
and playing when you play, and in
giving and demanding a square deal
in every act of life.

and the father thereupon took thc"
matter to the courts. On signifying
his intention, he received from the
city solicitor, whose name is Pork,
and who bears the title of judicial
councillor, a letter confirming thc refusal to pay, in which Herr Pork argued:
"No loss has been suffered by the
plaintiffs. Against the funeral expenses, the nature and amount of
which arc not stated, are to be- set
the saving in the cost of education
and maintenance which will accrue
to thc father in consequence of an
accident which, as he would have
had to provide for the child for years

than the funeral."

Can Make Wool From Wood,
Efforts that have-heretofore proved unsatisfactory have been made to
produce wool from wood, but announcement is made now that the difficulties have been... overcome. The
early experiments produced a short
stapled material with less warmth retaining power than natural wool. Now
a synthetic wool has been produced
that has a long staple, greater heat retaining properties, and.much strength
and  durability.

Road Manners
Traffic    Can    Be    Regulated    Only
Through .Uniform   Appreciation
Por Rules of the Road.
Periodically it is borne in on the
prudent and peace-loving motorist
that much of the annoyance to which
he is so frequently subjected on the
highway ^crises from contact with.the
very ix. i-and-tumblc element that
his car ostensibly helps him to avoid.
He goes out into the country to get
away from the crowd. Consequently
to encounter there the crowd's worst
element shocks and amazes him.
Traffic can be regulated only through
uniform appreciation for the reason
that underlies the rules of'theVroad.
Astonishingly few drivers seem to'
knowor heed these rules as it is, and
these must learn to differentiate
themselves from those who arc wilfully negligent of the comfort of
.others.' It is largely a question of.
manners, and those who do not know
why manners arc a part of life's code
must be taught; those who will not
learn must be restrained, In "the
meantime, with thc roads" dotted with
cars and spotted with flivvers, the
menace of the i!l-mannered grows.���

Dairying in  Saskatchewan
Has Become a Permanent and Extensive-Industry. -
The   success   of the" butter-making
���of Saskatchewan-is a reminder of thc
gratifying fact- that-the -Canadian
west is ceasing to depend wholly, on
grain growing. "That may still be the
leading branch'"of industry, but it is
not the only one. Mixed farming is
coming in, and in mixed farming
dairying is coming to the' front.
"Dairying,"'says a government publication, "has been established as an
extensive and permanent industry, and
is proving one of the greatest boohs
to.the province," writing especially of
- Saskatchewan.
-- "Butter is. now being shipped from
.Saskatchewan to Vancouver, Toronto
and Montreal. Many private and cooperative creameries are to, be' found
throughout the province, - and - their
number-is continually being-added to."
In 1918 there were produced in Saskatchewan, 3;154,566 pound's of butter,
2,301,250  pounds   being   produced   in
-co-ope.rativc-creameries.- - Since- their

Sir Frederick Stupart TSeJlsJUs What
Has Caused the Mild '������ Weather;
Canada's comparatively mild-climate this winter has been due to the
Kurisowo of Japan, a current -which

Sir Frederick Stupart, director of
meterological office and observatory,
Toronto, told an audience at Trinity
College, in an address on "Weather
and Weather Changes." Sir Frederick
said that when the current in question was warmer than usual it set up
disturbances' of the atmosphere in thc
north which changed the course of
the winds. Sir Frederick said rain
could not be produced by artificial
means. The idea that the moon influenced the weather was a fallacy, he
said, also the idea that birds or beasts
could tell by instinct the kind oi
weather that was coming.-. Sir Frederick said; he had little- confidence* in

The Home Circle
About Income Taxation
Most peple are just beginning to
wake up to the fact that they are
being taxed at every turn. The
Dominion, the Province and the
Municipality. Each has taken a
shy at them during the past few
���years, and the Dominion and the
Province are still busy.
The question of the right of
these governments to impose
direct taxation has been questioned, but there seems no ground
.for. criticism, as to authority to
���tax," even though there be a question- as -to the expediency ��� of- the
different taxes- being imposed on
the same income for example.
/, TJie.British North America Act-
distinctly confers .upon the Dominion the right of "raising of money
by any mode or system of taxation." ' That surely covers the
mode of taxation known as the
"income tax," although not until
the. war.; necessity arose has the
Federal authority ever imposed an
income tax. ��� '/"''
On'the. other hand the British
North-America Act. gives each province the right- to impose '"'direct
taxation, .within/(ihe" province, in
order to help in the-raising' of a
revenue for provincial'purposes."
No question, has -ever been raised
.as to the rights of the province, in
this "matter. - - The/Municipalities
being subject, to provincial control,
receive their authority' to impose
taxes on income from the province.
-These rights all exist/but the
taxpayer would -.feel easier if in
this respect he had to deal with
one power only, instead of.two and
.sometimes three.
Do you feel,-yoiuig--fellow,', that you have a hard time?
Your hours are long-. Your-task is hard and the wages
small. The contents of your "weekly pay envelope will
scarcely carry you over the week. Sometimes you must
wear patched trousers or a frayed coat. Your employer
expects a great deal from. you. Other fellows dress well
and always have money. They have coddling fathers and
mothers while you toil six days a week to make a living.
Never mind, young man. You are ahead of the boy who
has every luxury at home, , You are getting experience
that he must get somehow later oh. Because, sooner or
later he must fight the real battle of life himself. And
you have the advantage;

If men's happiness increased with their money, everybody should be justified in worshipping the Golden Calf
The happiness increases with their earnings up to a certain point���the point necessary to secure them the comforts of life, say S2.500 a \7ear. All beyond this is superfluous. Being superfluous it is productie of no good
whatever. The richer the man the greater is the prolv
ability that his sons will live on billiards and die in .the
inebriate asylum. With contentment and $2,500 a year a
man may be as happy as a prince. Without contentment
you may be miserable, even if your wealth equals that-of
Rockerfeller or Liptou.
One of the oldest books in existence is a collection of
proverbs by Ptohbotop, and Egyptian, who live soine-
where^about the time of Abraham. Among his injunctions is the following, which we commend to the writers,
on woman's emancipation, domestic economy, and other
popular topics, who may think that'the subjects they discuss are fresh and suggested by the increased intelligence
of modern civilization: "If thou be wise, furnish_ thy
house well; woo thy wife and do not quarrel with her;
nourish her; deck her out. for fine. dress is her greatest
delight, Purpose to make her glad as long as thou livest.
She is a blessing.which her possessor should treat as becomes his own standing. Be not unkind to her." This
council is hohe-the less useful at the present.'day," because
.3,500.years have elapsed since it was given. -, -'-.     .  ���'/  '-
Hints for Farmers
- - ("Written-.by a Farmer)./,
There is-: great/scope ..and -good
; profits,to be.madei if. the farmers
: will'get together and start's cheese
factory in Greenwood.;   With  100
tploO/head of milk cows, around
Greenwood'   and  -with    a.', little
good  will/and; energy, -'-'a' ''lot, of
things can be., done.   The farmers
shou 1 d start; a, co-operatiye -eociety
. aud.run a .cheese; factory, themselves and hire agopd cheese maker.
The members. of   the   society wilI
'sell their milk to the factory.    The
cmployeecontrols the. rni'k,   keeps
books, makes and sells the cheese:
The society would elect, a committee whose duty, it   is /to   see that
everything is  being run. properly.
Cutout all  unnecessary  expenses
and you will find there is a'good
returh.for your milk.  The.farmers
aronnd   Greenwood   .should    cut
down the   number   of their beef
cattle and.keep milk cows instead.
There is more profit in this than in
beef. This can be made a profitable
business;and with hog raising as.a
side line,.,wiiich wijL grow  fat on
the cheese milk; Wake up! .
