On Tuesday evening the Greenwood School Board met the ratepayers of Anaconda in  the  Anaconda School-House, to see if an
amicable  arrangement   could be

had planned to join the Anaconda
School district,  including Dead
wood  and  going as far north as
H.' Cox's ranch and' as far east as
R. Fodhaw's with that of Green
wood. . This would have meant
that:,the taxpayers would have to
pay. the saitie school.taxatiotj. as

This would.have .been a hardship
on the large property holders and.
the. Green wood Board. Suggested
that Anaconda' keep', the School
Board intact as. at present, with
their ,-same;'.-��� taxation   and   send
theiiv'children to" the Greenwood
school"in lieu of which  the. ratepayers bf Anaconda  will  hand
over   their   school   taxes to the
Greenwood Board;    This suggestion was readily  accepted by the
Anaconda   people   as   the   most
feasible way out of a difficulty

personal friends of Chief Fraser,
giRhered together to express their-
regrets on the Chifef leaving Greenwood. P. H. McCurrach' occupied
the chair, and-1. H. Hallett in his
usual witty and racy manner ex��
pressed to the Chief the regret we
all felt in losing a man of his
sterling calibre, and although he
waa the keeper of law. and order,
he tempered hia power with consideration and judgement, we had
always found him a good fellow
and in conjunction with his .very
popular wife, had aiwaj's shown &
desire to, help the commtimty in
any way that.they possibly could.
Mr.7 Hallett stated that ha had
much pleasure ^presenting to the.
Chief Jbhie sm*l 1 token of; friendship,
whieh consisted of a case of _ three
pipes, and.hoped that when enjoy*
ing his evening pipe at Penticton,
these small tokens might, bring to
mind the friends he had left behind
ih Greenwood. "
The Chief replied in a very
chosen manner, and said: that although he wag: leaving Greenwood
he was not leaving the. district sad
he hoped that he woald have many
opportunities of renewing acquaint--
ancea with Greenwood people with
whom he had spent six good years.
Several   others   made
sailable to the occasion. -

health-giving ultra violet rays, it. was
found in experiments with baby
chicks, just completed at Bangor in
the laboratory of ihe University of
Maine. The experiments are equally
applicable to children and are valuable
in preventing or curing children's diseases, according to the experimenters.
"The importance of these experiments would be very great if they
weve applicable only to the raising ol
chickens," said Dr. AV. T. BovicW'ho
conducted the experiments. "They
are quite as applicable to the production of eggs, and more important still,
they are applicable to raising of our
own children, for iho disease known
as rickets can be cured by a-.proper
exposure to the ultra violet light."

of changed conditions, but wherever
possible the old has been preserved
and not infrequently English beof is
served, to iving George which has boon

days of tho Plantagenct kings.
Each kitchen at Windsor has a chef.
One devotes himself to roasts, another
to soups, a third to entrees, a fourth
to pastries, et cetera. At the orders
of each chef are four cooks who havo
under them a good-sized corps of assistants, altogether a force large

���- A. local motor transport company
recently extended its servicer between
Beirut anil Bagdad as far as Teheran.

tligli cost of burial in Kerbela is
beginning to= worry faithful 'Persians.
In. addition to paying the'., mullah's,
who extract enormous fees for the
.burial, Ihey have to bear the transportation costv ef about $1,000. 7 Tho
latter charge is said to be trifling compared with the Ices exacted for a good

On Oot. 12th, 1924, the death
occurred at the family residence of
Mrs. E. R. Martin.
Mrs. Martin whose maiden name
was Rhoda Goldsmith was born at
Harro, near Kingston, Ont. For
seven years she lived in Kingston
where her husband conducted a
furniture establishment. But the
call of the west' lured Mr. Martin
and finally he settled at Rock
Creek twenty six years ago on
what is known as the Rock Creek
Plateau. In a short time be was
joined by Mrs. Martin and daughter, Bhe being the first woman to
make her home on the plateau.
The means of transportation at that
time inadequate, Mrs. Martin leaving the main line at Sicamous and
along the lake to Penticton where
she made connection with the
Myerhoff stage, for the Boundary.
She was blessed with one of the
greatest treasures in the world���
a noble character and she will always be remembered in the history
of pioneer days of the diRfcrict for
her influence outside of her own
family in making her homeattrac-
tive for the men who were living
lonely liveB in the community.
Besides her  sorrowing husband
she leaves one daughter,  Mrs. Jas.

Comparatively few of the thousands of miles 9f railroad
in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
organization which does not rely to a greater or lesser
extent on electricity as an aid to efficient operation and
service. Electricity plays an important part in all of tlie
great Railroad Shops through the country. Some trains
and cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored in batteries. Bridges are operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices are in constant-use which
beside being labor saving do away with the human element which might make for inefficiency.' Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of the Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where-they are more urgently required.
To the average layman an automatic signal is just a
signal, and the general public is only interested in it
because it gives added protection, or'rather eliminates
possible danger from the portion of track which it governs.
To the railroad official it is.rnore. It acts as watchman
against broken rails, open switches. ���;. fouled track or any
other obstruction. Through a circuit in the rail this is
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for the reason
that another train is occupying the block, or that there is
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the signal may not pass.
And while it awaits, a through signal, trains following.in
the rear may not approach for the reason that they arc
also stopped"' by an automatic signal which will not
release them until the preceding train has passed from
that section* of ihe track which they desire to enter.
