The ��� meeting was called by an

High School Examination
The public examination of Greenwood High School, held last Friday, was a great success. The pupils
were examined in History, Liter-
atare, Latin, French, Greek, and
Geometry. In all of these subjects,
the results were satisfactory.
The visitors  were surprised at
the   range   and   accuracy   of  the
answers given to the questions in
history,    and   the    command   of
language-exhibited  by the pnpils,
in    dealing    with    this    subject.
Principal Stramberg thinks he has
been teaching prospective orators
and statesmen.    Miss Vera Kempston has  the rare faculty of  expressing her thoughts in clear and
forcible language.    Robert  Jenks
should succeed in.any of the learned professions.    With proper training he will make a good politicianr
lawyer, or a judge.    His aptitude
for Classics augurs success.    Miss
Ruth Axam is the model pupil of
the school; in all subjects her work
is   very    commendable.      Harold
Mellrud,   who   is   a   good   Latin
scholar,  is  the best  essayist and
Miss Priscilla Kerr one of the best
mathematicians : in   the    school.
McLeod and Williamson  have set
their hearts   on  being   engineers.
They have,  however,   quite a distance to go before they reach  the
goal of their ambition. ' .
Among the Junior pupils, Miss
Ethel Fraser seems to be the1 most
promising. Her forte is mathematics. The other pupils of the
lower grades are all good students,
although they have not yet develop-
!*ed'-arfy*r_extraordiawy,^ap^
knowledge.
At the examination several good
essays were read. "The Choice of
a Profession" by Miss Kempston,
���'Our Feathered Friends" by Miss
Fraser, and the -'Poetry of Tennyson" by Harold Mellrud were the
beBt.
Among the visitors were Mrs. G.

Entrance Examinations
There are many birds here,
perhaps as many as at any other
part in Canada. Few 'people
know the names of all of them, |
still fewer know their habits. If
a boy or girl should have au
opportunity to acquire the names
of these birds, and should profit
by it, something would be added
to the pleasure of life, something
worthwhile. The schools might
take this matter up, but they are
overcrowded with work now. -
The time of the , strawberry
short cake has come- Next to
the cherry pie it is ranked as tbe
most delicious of all simple cookeries. Aad this is the right week
for the strawberry short cake,
when., the examinations are on
and the children need tempting
food, aud the fish season is open
and'anglers come home tired'and
disappointed from the - fishing^
grounds. , If a husband should
need a scolding for wandering
away to the place where the fish
swim and the game of chance is
played, give him good strawberry
short cake instead, and so teach
him the virtues of a home keeping life. But strawberries may
not be a good crop this year. Not
enough rain. So let the cake be
made this week.

Value Of Fall Rye
As Dry District Crop
Is   VV ltnout Question
Owing io its adapability to various
uses, fall rye is coming rapidly into
favor In many sections of the west.
Although up until a comparatively
few years ago this crop "was largely
grown only as a grain, its other uses
have been partially responsible for its
growing popularity. It is particularly useful in the drier sections of the
west where wind damage is common,
and everywhere ihat livestock is a
considerable factor in farming operations. Owing to the fact that it has
possession of ihe ground at the time
wind damage is most likely to occur,
it is extremely valuable as it is largely abla to resist the destructive action
of the wind even when so severe that
other grain crops would be failures.
Us ability to stand pasturing both in
late fall and early spring are the rea-
Kons for its popularity with stock
raisers.
The methods and dates ot seeding
vary greatly in the various sections of
tlie country. The general practice is
to sow at the rate of one and one-half
bushels to the acre about the middle
of August on ground which has been
worked as a summerfallow up to that
date. The advantages claimed for
this method are that the laud receives
a partial summerfallow and, as a result, the yield both of pasture and
���grain is high. Another advantage is
that the crop is able to develop a good
top before freeze-up, and the damage
from winter-killing is practically nil.
While a bushd'and a half is the usual
rate of seeding at this time in the
more humid sections, it may be increased slightly, especially if the intention is to pasture the crop heavily
or cut it for hay. In the drier sections it would be desirable to decrease
slightly the amount of seed shown.
. When seeding Is delayed until after the
1st of September, it is very seldom
that the crop develops a sufficiently
large top to enable It to go through
the winter without serious danger of
damage from winter-killing.        ,
Another method which Is rapidly
ooming into favor is the mixing of
winter rye seed with the oats in the
spring, and, in this way, enabling the
'land to produce two crops at the same
time. As the winter rye does not
shoot. the first year it is sown, but
merely forms a greenc-mat close to the
surface of the ground, tliere is no danger of the oats containing winter rye
when threshed, and the amount of
feed made available in the stubble
during the fall is almost unbelievable
if not seen. The recommended rate
of seeding under this method is a bushel or oats and three pecks of winter
rye per acre. Some good fanners
recommend sowing ihe oats separately
first, and, when they are about three
inches high, cross-drilling with winter
rye. Slightly more seed is used when
this is. done.
The value of fall rye as a crop for
ihe dry districts and where wind damage is common and also as a pasture
and hay crop is unquestioned, and fall
rye is destined to increase in popularity as its good qualities become more
widely known.���By N. D. Mackenzie.
Sounds Which Animals Make.
South Africa Wants
Market For Maize
Collapse of German Mark Shatters
Hope of Doing Business.
A Reuter despatch from Cape Town
says increasing difficulty is being experienced in finding markets i'or South
African malze,_the production of which
enormously exceeds local requirements. Today's world prices are below those current in South Africa and
St no longer pays the farmer to produce for export. Great hopes were
entertained of doing business with
Germany, b-tt these were shattered by
the" collapse of the German mark and
as a matter of preeaulion several large
consignments Intended for Gercnany
have been diverted to Rotterdam.
As a measure of retaliation for
.South Africa's restrictions on the
import of wheat and boots, Australia
- is applying an anti-dumping act to
South African maize, thus closing another promising channel for export.
Cycling Across the Channel
Englishman Made Trip to Calais in
Heavy Seas.
Of late, swimming the channel or
crossing it on a watercyclc- has become a favorite stunt with Englishmen. The latter feat these days was
undertaken by*o,ne Harold Rigby, His
machlnc\was fitted on two large
fioats, with a propellor in front,
driven from the rear wheel. H7e left
Folkestone about G o'clock in the
morning, accompanied by a motor
boat, and soon encountered choppy
seas and strong wind and,   when   in
��� mid-channel, heavy rainstorms. For
three hours after getting half way
across Rigby suffered from seasickness, and so rough wa3 the sea that
no food could be given to him. At
times ho was almost crashed from
tins saddle, but hc persisted, and rode
into Calais harbor at �� p.m. He had
hoped to ride to France and return
to Folkestone within '15   hours,   but
iii�� sea ofi? the French coast mad* that
impossible.

Phonograph Experiments Prove Our
Ideas Are All Wrong
Experiments recently carried out in
England by means of phonographs, to
discover the sounds which animals
really do make, show that many of
the popular ideas of the cries made
by them are altogether wrong.
It is commonly supposed that sheep
say "Baa." What the animals really
say, according to a phonographic record, Is something like "Man." A close
examination of the mouth of the
sheep shows that ihe animal cannot
form the letter "B" at all. The shape
of its mouth is all wrong for that.    '%
How many people if asked to imitate a dog barking would say something like "Bow-wow?" But the dog
does not say this at all. On the
phonograph the sound is like "Wow-
wow," without any suggestion of a
"B" at all.
Most folks thing il would be quite
right to speak of the growl of a tiger.
As a matter of fact, this creature does
not growl at all. Its ordinary cry in
its native jungles has been shown to
be a kind of cough. This resembles
a sort of "Wouf-wouf," although, as a
matter of fact, it is very difficult to
put tho noise into words.
An attempt to take the so-called
"laugh" of the hyena proved interesting on account of the fact that no one
was able to suggest words that would
describe it.
Just two birds were tried in order to
see what kind of a noise they make.
Rooks and crows are said to "caw,"
but the sound they actually make resembles a "haw" much more nearly.
It was shown that pigeons do not
"coo," the cry they mako being more
like "hoo."
Must Make War Impossible
Harry Lauder Says It Is Task for
English-Speaking People
The audience was willing to laugh
its��loudest at a benefit performance
for the TJnited British Relief Committee of New York at the New Amsterdam Theatre, when Sir Harry
Lauder wriggled out in front of the
curtain and stalked with swinging
kilts in the bare six inches between
the curtain and the footlights,, to the
centre of the stage..
"I didn't come to make you laugh.
I came io' talk to you," he said when
the welcoming shouts died down.
"When 1 heard that you were giving
this ..performance, tonight.,to. help the
boys who fought for you and for me,
I couldna keep away.   ,   -t
"I was in America when the. war
broke out/but I was In London later
and saw the boys marchin' awa with
their boots crashin' on the pavement
and their bayonets gleamln' in the
sun. But it's all wrong, it's all
wrong!
"Friendship! Aye, that's a bonny
word, the besi word in our language
and in any language. But how are
we going to make it more than a
word? There is but one way and
that is through a union of the EDg-
lish-speaking people.
"There is France. France that
some of you and ihat I saw. France
is not so big as she was before the
war. Some of you own a wee bit
of France how that it Is all over.
I own a wee bit of France, too," and
Sir Harry tightened his lips and
"something" glistened behind his steel
spectacles as he thought of his sou,
the idol of his life, a captain in the
Highland Brigade, killed in action in
Flanders during the first few, months
of the war.
"But it's going to stop," he contained. "Great, things are coming.
Great things will be .done. Great
things must be done. It lies for the
English-speaking people of the world
to make war impossbile, not for a
generation or two, but for everlasting time."
German Properties in Upper Silesia
Decision of League Will Not Hinder
Their Development   ,
German properties in the districts
of Koenigshuette and Laurahuette of
Upper Silesia, will" be conducted in
the finest state of efficiency, although
the region where they are located has
been awarded to Poland. Officials of
Silesian mining and smelting companies have decided that the action of the
Council of the League of Nations
should not interfere with the conduct of business. This was agreed
upon at a recent meeting attended by-
delegates representing companies having a total capitalization of billions of
marks. Two companies alone have
payrolls exceeding* 700,000,000 marks
each month.
Great Paintings In Storage
Canada Has No Proper Place for War
Memorials' Pictures
Though they have a potential value
of millions, and a sentimental value
that cannot be estimated, tho Canadian War Memorials' paintings���the
finest collection of the kind in the
world���are rolled up today in a small
store room in the basement of the
National Gallery, for the reason ihat
Canada has no proper place io put
them. That they are not on exhibition in a suitable building is a national loss, and but a poor appreciation of tire most outstanding art of
this age.
There are 100 paintings in all, for
the gift of which Canada owes much
to Lord Beaverbrook and those associated with him, through whose
management the work was done.
They are by thc best British artists
of the day, and represent what is
possibly their most inspired painting.
Some of tlie canvases are huge. One
that Mr. Augustus John has not yet
finished is 40 feet by 10 feet, and
there are othei-s in storage that n,o
ordinary height of wall would carry.
As a collection they are enormously
valuable, not only as works of art,
but historically. There are pictures
of ihe great victories, of the Victoria
Cross men, of.the most important generals; some lasting and beautiful record of practically every phase of the
war.���From the Ottawa Journal.
The Thief Paid
Chickens Cost Man More Than He

A Simple Tipping Gear
New Solution Has Been Patented By
British Firm
The number of devices Invented for
raising the body of a wagon so that
its contents may be tipped out on to
a dump in legion. Most of the forms
adopted are slow in action if they are
simple, and if the action is rapid the
mechanism is very heavy and complicated, especially where side tipping
as well as rear tipping is required.
Some interest therefore will be taken
in a new solution patented by a British firm. It consists simply of an
ordinary jack fixed on the chassis immediately beneath the centre of the
body, and operating ln a ball-and-
socket joint which enables it to tilt in
any direction as the jack is raised or
lowered. The body rests on hinges
which can be adjusted for side tipping���to either side���or for rear tipping. When the wagon has to be
tipped, all that it necessary is to arrange the hinges in a suitable way
and operate ihe jack by means of the
engine on the car. The jack in rising pushes the body over towards the
side where the hinges remain' fixed.
Tho operation is quite-rapid; and in
the event of any breakdown of the
power the mechanism can bc operated by hand. The only additional
weight which this invention involves
is ihe weight of the jack and the girders fixing it to the chassis.

Here is a singular incident showing
how easy it is to mistranslate an overheard remark.
Said Mrs. A., one of the overhear-

Said Mrs. B.: "No, no. They were
talking about going away and she
said to him, 'Find out about the.
train, dear.'"
Said Mrs. C: "I think you are both
j wrong. tt seemed to me they were
discussing music, for she said, 'A
trained ear' very distinctly.'" .
A few minutes later the lady herself
appeared and they told her of their
disagreement.
"WeU," she laughed, "that's certainly funny. You are poor guessers, all
of you. The fact is, I'd been out to
tho country overnight and I was asking my husband if it rained here last
evening."���Boston Transcript.

Thoughts and Actions Leave Trace on
Human Character
A wealthy younjg fellow was standing before a costly plate-glass window, idly scratching upon it with a
diamond which he wore oil his finger.
A small street urchin, after watching
him for awhile with evident signs of
displeasure, finally said to the older
boy who w"as" disfiguring "the window:
"Don't yer do that no more; what
yer doin' it for?"
"Why shan't I do ft?"-said the
other. "Guess I shall do it if I want
to.     Why not,"
"Because," said the younger boy,
and his voice became earnest, "because yer can't rub it out!"

No News From World Penetrates
Solitude   of   Mt.   Everest
The following message has been received from Colonel Howard Bury
(world's copyright by the Times and
supplied by the Mount Everest Committee):���
On June 23, Mr." Mallory and Mr.
Bullock, with coolies and yaks,, left
Tinjrri to reconnoitre the easiest
methods of approaching Mount Everest from the northwest. The maps
showing the. country to the north of
the mountain are auite useless. It is
impossible to put any. trust in them.;
The chief obstacles to progress are
the great glacier streams intervening,
but there is, however, an occasional
rickety bridge. The first march from
Tingri towards Everest led to the
Ilongbuk Glacier, a large glacier
stream flowing down this valley, but
there was a fragile bridge, _at the
monastery of Chhobo. Over this
bridge all loads had to be carried by
hand, while the pack animals were
swum across the river.
The path" now led up the wild,
strangely holy valley of ltongbuk to
the monastery of Rongbuk, which
stood at a height of 16,500 ft. It is
curious how often the proximity of a
great mountain or some wonderfully
impressive piece of scenery comes to
be looked upon as holy, sacred ground.
So here, in this valley, live between
three and four hundred hermits and
nuns in solitary cells or in-the caves
that are dotted about under thc great
cliffs that abound the valley. Here
no news from the outer world ever
penetrates. "The hermits and nuns
live a life, of ��� the greatest seclusion
under the shadow of the giant precipice of Everest, and can' contemplate
the marvellous beauties of nature In
peace and solitude.
In all these parts the inhabitants
know Everest by the name of Chorao-
Lungma, the goddess mother of the
country. This apparently is the proper Tibetian name for the mountain.
After a day or two spent in recon-
naisance, the Alpine climbers established-a/campv at a height of" 18,000
feet; Even supposing; the ridge summits at 25,000; feet to 26,000 feet were
gained there yet remains some of the
most difficult rock climbing at still
greater ..heights before the summit
could be attained. Hard rock climbing at great heights Is practically an
impossibility. It demands too much
from the human frame. In highly
ratified air the extra exertion * demanded is impossible.

j aembled, and kneeling reverently at

a gift of two acres of the Evangeline

There are in all about fourteen

two acres were presented to the

'\
When the prairie farms of the middle west were developed, the lack of
trees was felt. The clear sweep of
the winds across the flat plains was a
great hindrance to agriculture, for the
soil was dried out quickly by evaporation, and grain ..was lodged by the
mechanical force of the wind. Windbreaks were the only remedy, and '
thousands of miles of them : were
planted along roads and farm division
lines. The effect of this planting,,
though only gradually felt, was very
distinct; farming , and living conditions became more favorable through- ."'���
out the whole region.
Any body of trees which gives protection to buildings or crops.jnay be
called a windbreak. This article has
to do, however, only with belts of
trees planted a'jout fields and farm
buildings, especially for the purpose ^
of breaking the force of the;wind. Tho
typical windbreak Is a belt consisting
of from six to eight rows of trees.and
usually from a quarter of a mile to a
mile" in length.
The Influence of a timber windbreak
upon air currents is purely mechanical. Its effectiveness depends, therefore, upon how nearly impenetrable it
is. The ordinary windbreak does not
provide,-an absolute ..barrier to the
wind; a certain amount of air forces
its way between the branches and foliage of the trees,- so . that'the - move- *"*-
merit of the air on the leeward side is
not completely stopped but only greatly reduced. When windbreaks.composed of such trees as cottonwood become old, wide openings are left between the bare trunks, and more wind
gets through near the ground than
higher up. Such windbreaks can bo,,
made efficient only by underplanting
the cottonwood with other trees or
shrubs. ' .    .
. An ideal windbreak for checking
wind ' currents would have the contour of an earth dam.- In the central
rows would 7 bo planted. the tallest
trees. Such a windbreak would not
bo easily penetrated, and its inclined
surface would divert the air currents
upward and relieve the. horizontal
wind pressure. , '
Breaking the mechanical force of
the wind benefits the farmer most
directly by protecting his grain crops.
The value of the windbreak in giving
this protection is, of ^ourse, difficult
to meastire in dollars and cents, but
where wind3 are at all frequent such
protection alone may be ��qual to the
rental of the ground occupied bf the
trees. In one case in Southern Minnesota a windbre.aij:, 80 rods long and
about 28 'feet high along the side of a
cornfield, afforded complete protection
for a strip about 10 rod9"wide during
a wind blowing at 50 miles an hour.
On the unprotected part of the field '
the wind blew down half the corn-and
bent the remainder halfway, the damage beginning at the edge of the 10-
rod strip and increasing until it was
greatest in that part of the field'farthest from the windbreak. The corn
was in the milk stage at the time of
the high wind and did^not produce
more than a third of a crop on tho
damaged area. . On the protected portion the total saving was 260 bushels,
or the full crop of 6 acres, whereas
the windbreak occupied only 2 acres.
Movement of tho'topsoU also may
be checked and dust storms prevented
by breaking the force of the wind.
For this reason windbreaks are of immense benefit in sandy regions or re-
gionsjvrtiere_the_sjjiI is_y_ery_flne.	
Added to the crop and soil protection there is the personal comfort to
be derived from protection from wind
about the farm and home and along
public roads. Furthermore, a. -protected home is heated in winter more
readily, and hence more cheaply, than
one exposed to the wind.

Large   Per Cent, of  Its Area  Under

(With a population of 652 persons per

' under permanent forest, and this forest area was increasing, showing that
the limit of what land it, was deemed

Tuberculosis In Cattle
Reports Show Success of the "Accredited Herd System :
Although the Accredited Herd System was only adopted in 1919, and is
necessarily slow in its development,
owners of herds all over Canada are
proving that in their opinion the beneficial results are worth securing.   The:
Health of Animals -Branch of the Dominion Department of Agriculture, urn
der whose jurisdiction the prosecution'
of the system naturally falls, reports
that, up to October 1 of the present-
year, G-1S applications for the test-had
been received from owners of herds;
that 558 herds had been tested once
or moro for accreditation; that 37 had
becn completed and passed, and that
54    were    ou    the waiting list.      It
should be explained lhat   men   with
the necessary experience and qualification for the work are not numerous,
and the process takes at least a year
to complete.     If the herd under test
reveals   reactors,   the  timc  taken  Is
longer still because    every   possible
trace or cause for suspicion must be
eradicated before the year of probation   commences.     If   there   is   the
slighlest cause for suspicion of lurking tuberculosis and tbe lesion  does
not reveal itself, guinea pigs are inoculated with some of the suspicious
material with the result that, if present, the tubercle bacilli usually come
to "the  front.     Reactors are-always

Success Is Achieved By Making  Use
Of Ability
A Hungarian -laborer carried the
largest ruby in the world, the:great
Mo.son Tarsca, around for .20 years as
a lucky pocket piece. He found the
s'tqjie near'a little stream in Hungary,
and brought it to America with him.
When it was cut and polished it
weighed 23.0 carats and is now valued*
at ?125,000.
Everybody is carrying around some
asset in its rough state, that is worth
as much as the Moson Tarsca ruby.
Perhaps it is the undeveloped ability
J to do some particular task better than
anyone else. Perhaps it is a mind,
which if turned into propore channels
would be able to solve some of the
problems ��� which .are. troubling, tho
world.
These qualities, like the great ruby,
have no value if left undeveloped-and
unpolished. But ronce they are
brought into activity they lift their
owner from poverty to success.

The young roan in Burma usually
manifests his interest iri a girl at

with his boy friends, to find the young
lady with a bevy of girl friends waiting him. He means business, however, and if the families consent, he
persuades her to eat a meal with him
in public, and by virtue of this procedure the engagement is made.

soul, or what shall it profit a man
if he gain the whole world and in

Anderson, the members of the Knights of
Pythias fully recognize that-they have
lost one of their number, who was at all
times imbued with the pure principles of
the order, and whose life and conduct
suifer no reproach to be on his character.,
either as a Pythian, fellow   citizen  or
husband.  ._      _     _    _  jl        _   _
Resolved, -that the sincere and heartfelt sympathies ofthe members of the
Greenwood Lodge No. 29 be, and are

of our deceased Brother, whose loss wc,
with her, deeply mourn.
Resolved, that as a token of love and
esteem, for our deceased Brother, the
Charier of the Lodge be draped.
- Resolved, that these resolutions be recorded on the records of the Lodge, and
