Big Social Gathering
Grand Success
About 500 people from all over
the district oame to the social
gathering in the Masonic Hall last
Monday night in honor of the election of Dougald McPherson. Ife
waB probably the largest crowd
ever assembled in the Masonic Hall
and ife was a real sociable crowd���
everybody laughing and shaking
bands with one another, forgetting .their political differences
and all united for fehe purpose of
having a good time. And while
fehe dancing was going on a smoker
ih the Liberal Committee rooms
was in progress and they were a
real jolly bunohof men (both sides)
joking with one another. It was a
most fitting way to close a hard
fought campaign and all are friends
once more. Hon. Wm/Sloan and
Dougald McPherson received a
ferememdous ovation when they
addressed the gathering for a few
MrB. JS. H. Pannell sang^by
reqqe8fe at the dance her parody
which is printed in another column
and which caused  much  laughter.
To the Ommanney four-piece
orchestra must be given great
praise for music, that compares
very favorably with large city
orchestras and is even better than
some that are heard over the radio.
They delighted even, the spectators
and they were very liberal and
pleasing with their encores. Jno.'
Shannon was the floor manager
and he certainly knows how to pnfe
pep in. a dance and keep things
Perhaps the greatest task of all
-was the catering to this unexpected
large crowd. The ladies had made
3000 sandwiches in the afternoon
yefe more had to be made hurriedly.
It is estimated that nearly 400
people were fed���a mosfe difficult
task, still it was done without any
undue trouble or fuss, as only
ladies can overcome these difficulties. After everybody was fed-
there \vere five cakes and three
loaves of bread left over.
The jolly crowd were loathe to
go home"ye�� all things must come
to an end and the orchestra played
the ((home" waltz afe 3 a.m, Three
cheers for McPherson and cheers
for the orchestra brought a very
jolly time to a close.
Bigger Than A Circus .
Bigger than the biggest circus/
Not even fehe extravagant press-
agentry of the greatest show on
earth could excell the trnth regarding tbe production of "The Covered
Wagon" for Paramount which
comes to . the Greenwood Theatre
on Friday and ^Saturday; May Isfc
and 2nd ;also matinee on Saturday
at- 2:15 -p.7m. - -Fifty-carloads���of-
material were shipped to the location, at Baker, Nevada.
In addition, one thousand
Indians, and more than two
thousand white persons are seen in
the picture. Also there are upward of 1000 horses, several
hundred mules and 500 covered
wagons. The center of activity
was at the Baker Ranch. Prior to
arriving there, director James
Cruze spent- several days afe Antelope Island in the Great Salt
Lake, making a buffalo hunt with
500 head of bison on that. Island.
J. Warren Kerrigan and ,Lois

British   Boys  of the   Right Type  Will

John I.. I'aton, headmaster of Jlun-
(���hosier, Kngland. (irammar School I'or

"A British lad
hem, who wants lo gel ou in Iifo must,
generally speaking, look overseas for
his advancement, and iu Canada he
will tind an ideal country Lo settle in
and one lull of endless possibilities.-"
Mr. Paton is touring Canada under
the ausipees of the Canadian council
of education. He was the chief speaker at the annual convention of the.
Manitoba Educational Association,
held in Winnipeg recently.
Mr. Paton has been instrumental in
Bending many town-bred boys to Canada, who have done splendidly on the
land, and he is in favor of such boys,
after finishing their secondary school
course, being sent right out. to work
un a farm in Canada. "J I wil), of
course, be a help to thorn to know the
rudiments of fanning before ihey leave
the Old Country," lie said, "but if they
have agriculture in their bones, they
will soon pick, up farming out here, and
will be able to take a course at0 an
agricultural college after picking up
local conditions on a farm. If a young
fellow wishes to get on, he can do so
in this country. He-knows hc must
rely on himself and this will he ft great
incentive, to a lad of tho right type."
Mr. __, Piiiou referred to the largo
sums spent on education in Canada
and to the great possibilities of learning open practically to' all. "It is
wonderful," he said, "to thinkVhat $20
per head of population was spent last
year in Saskatchewan on education,
while ?7 only was similarly dealt with
in England.. Results have already
been greai, but as time, goes on, will
bo greater."
Proposals favoring the. closest possible co-operation between teachers'
organisations in Western Canada were
adopted at tho annual convention ot
the Saskatchewan 'lVaehers' Alliance
held in Regina.
A slatement presented to tho cott-
wiih an agricultural vomiun "nd endorsed outlined lho attitude of tho Saskatchewan organization to the Canadian Teachers' Federation. It expressed approval of-the
principle of a dominion organization,
but pointed out that the present cost
of conducting the federation was too
great in proportion to tlie services
rendered by that organization. It
was suggested that eastern and western sections might he formed" to meet,
annually, while the federation could
meet triennally.
A proposal to raise the stndard of
teachers engaged in Saskatchewan
by the discontinuance of the authorization of all teachers with less standing than a full second-class academic

Preservation Of Eggs
Water Glass or Lime Water Found to
Be the' Best Preservative
At the St. Anne do la Pocatiere, Dominion experimental stalion. Quebec
Province, an experiment has been tried
to ascertain thc best method of storing eggs for winter use. The experiment included eggs stored in one-dozen cartons, Avithout treatment; eggs
wrapped in tissue paper and stored in
one-dozen cartons; eggs dipped in
boliug water and wrapped in tissue
paper and stored in one-dozen cartons;
eggs placed on small ends in earthen
jars and covered with salt; eggs placed in earthen jars and covered with
water glass solution and eggs plaited
in earthen jars and covered with lime
water. .The- eggs stored were-new
laid, infertile, sound in shell and
clean and were stored from July 1G to
December 15, 192... They were placed in a cellar on a cement lloor, the
temperature varying from '10 to 50 degrees F. This first experiment -would
indicate that tbe use of commercial
water glass solution (obtainable at
most drug stores) and lime water,
which can be home made, are the two
best means of preserving eggs for a
fairly Jong period. The contents of
the- eggs in the lime water were just
as good as those in fhe wau'r glass
solution, there being some difference
in the appearance of tiie shells. .Sail
gave poorer results, but can bo used
advantageously for short periods. Eggs
wrapped in tissue paper followed in
results,  but   those   dipped   in   boiling

The Origin Of "Sam Hill"
Collector Of Similes Says It Is
Corruption Of Samael
In a letter to tlie New York Times,
Frank ,T. Wilstach, who has been collecting American and other similes for
20 j ears or more for a dictionary of
similes, says it is not unlikely that tlie
usl.' oi the mystic name "Sam Hill"
stems from Puritan New England���
the Puritan having a stinging aversion to the use of the words hell and
devil- in their conversation. The
Puritanical unwillingness to _ say
"Fight like hell," "Swear like-ilu-
devil," causVl the euphonicic substitute, Ram Hill, Iq be hit upon���thus
avoiding ihe letter, but maintaining
the spirit of the thought.

Eve and brought on our various diili-

vicious demon, whose language, we
may well imagine, when given iree

that tlie province of Quebec contains

that in all Canada the total population
of British origin is not more than

some English-speaking people in Eastern Canada, British Columbia and Alberta are little more than geographical

Future Peace Jn Europe
Should Be Based Oh Goodwill Thinks
Sir Esme Howard -
"��� Princeton, N.J.���Reasons for Great
Britain's -rejection of the Geneva protocol for .compulsory arbitration of'international disputes and hopes held
out for future peace in f Europe by
means of the security pacts proposed
by G'erm'anjv- were outlined by Sir
Esme Howard, British ambassador to
the United States, in an address before the English-Speaking Union.
"It Is impossible to say now," he asserted, "how the security pact discussions will end, but we can at least
all hope that Ihey may lead to a''settlement by agreement and to the establishment of a peace, not dependent
upon huge and ruinous armaments,
but based on goodwill and common
sense."    V    f
"If that comes, about," Sir Esine
continued, "the next disarmament
conference will not be long in coming. Of that we may be sure. If, on
the other hand, this hope also fades
away and dies, why, then, 1�� frankly
do not seo any other alternative than
the maintenance of- our national security; and-what irony to call it security by force of armsTand military alliances, which wiil make crushing taxation, financial ruin and. the inevitable
armageddon in the end."

loss last year "of $1,440,880, which is

to ?8,836,609.
This total deficit of ?S,S3G,60!) is

The report, in reference to the total
loss for the year, adds this note:
,""In order to avoid any misunderstanding, it may bc well lo call attention lo the fact that this amount includes more than $4,000,000 for inter-,
est still charged against the company

Ottawa.���Differing saarply from
critics of tho budget, Herbert^ Marler,
Liberal, St. , Lawrence-St. George,
Montreal, held, In the house, that lite
financial statement presented by Hon,
J. A���Robb, acting minister- of finance,
was "dear to analyse and clear in its
effect." He did not agree that railway loans should be included in the
total of net consolidated debt". Operation of the National Railways had
been "an extremely expensive matter"
for the people of the Dominion, but,
while our railway debt was a "debt of
the Dominion, Mr. Marler thought it
was another" matter thai it should be
included iu the consolidated debt.
- For one reason, Mr. Marler argued,
the Question of public ownership was
on trial, amL,if, at any subsequent-
date, it was terminated, "it-would be
distinctly preferable to have as large
a part as possible of our railway debt
kept separate from our other financial
dealings." He submitted, however,
that the public should lie given each
year a statement of the combined debt,
showing in one part the consolidated
debt, with its increases or decreases,
and in another part any increase in
the railway indebtedness.
 Mr._,Marler_estimated  that in--the
last six years' thc Dominion had put
?5S5,8i8,!)74 of new money into railways. "Member who are" so much in

In the sweeping1 victory registered at the poll on Saturday
the riding of Grand Forks-Greenwood redeemed itself. The
electors were not led astray by
the spacious, but none the less
unconvincing, arguments of the
Opposition spell-binders. There
was but one issue���what is best
for Greenwood���for the eleqtors
of this district. It may seem
selfish for a section of a constituency to frankly put to themselves the query���what are your
own interests?
But as a matter of fact that
question is the prime problem.
There is an old-time saying "The
Lord helps those who helps themselves." That applies to modern
Greenwood has seen its days of
splendor. There is no reason
why it should not see them again.
The question is, under what conditions.
The Opposition speakers made
their appeal based upon the supposition that a Conservative win
would spell the Government's
defeat. That argument was
fallacious. It rested with the
electors of this riding to support
a tried, though at times, much
criticized administration or "fly
to the evils they know not of."
Saturday's decision, in our
opinion, was a wise one. Iu Mr.
Dougald MxPherson we have an
aggressive, albeit a common
sense, member who will see to it
that this riding of Grand Forks-
Greenwood in general, and
Greenwood in particular, will receive full consideration. There
is more evidence here today, than
a year ago, a spirit of co-operation which argues well for the
welfare of this section. Let-us
pull together and we are sure
only of the best .results will be
forthcoming.  -      --.--. -./'- '   ���--���'.-������

-As ���-: reported in   our last "Issue
Wellington Elson died in Spokane
on Thursday morning Jast,   April
23rd at the age of 47 years.    Little
hopes wer6 entertained for his recovery but he went through .the
operation   in   marvellously - geod
shape, and showed no shock and no
,  hemorrhage. 'He livedfor 23 hours
.;after the operation and  bis eondi-
. tion was good until he took a con-
vuisidn and then died very suddenly.    The late Mr. Eison had  been
'���; in business continuously since 1899
corning- here from Moose Jaw, Bask.
He saceessfaily sustained  all the
ups and downs of Greenwood sad
through business ability and integrity, built np a sound tailoring and
. gents famishing establishment. He
was born in Colling wood, Ont.. He
leaves one sister living iu Ontario
Jaad a brother in Michigan.   He
was married in Greenwood and .he
and his wife had built a nice home
where they lived until she died
about three years ago. Mr. Elson
had been in failing health for some
time but everything possible that
kind friends and medical skill could
do was of no avail.
Mrs. Trounson was a loyal and
true friend antl did everything ia
her power feo make things pleasant
for him and she proved a real
friend in the hour of need.
The funeral service was held in
the Presbyterian church on Monday
at which there was a big crowd.
Rev. W. R. Walkinshaw performed
the last sad rites. .The pall-beareiB
were;���Jas. Kerr, Jack Morrison,
Joe Caron, Victor Barrett, Lew
Bryant and R. Leo. Interment
took place in the Greenwood cemetery.
A Good Parody
Mrs. H. H. Pannel) composed
and sang the following verses at a
political meeting in Midway and
also at the big social gathering
in Greenwood on Monday night.
The song is sung to the air of
"The Wearing o'the Green."
Oh voters dear and did you bear the
the news that's going round
McPherson, he was sure to go, for lie's a
going hound.
He has not made any promises of things
so great and fine
For gilt edged talk and hot air yarns was
0     never in his line.
NowJ met with Doug McPherson and he
took me by the hand
And he said how's good old Greenwood
and how does she stand
She is true and she's righttninded clear
���  thinking is her boast
And at the polls decided to send you to
the coast
He will leave his Lizzies at the Forks
His bus and bugs and boats
For the people in this riding, they know
who "got their goats"
They know that they   have   got a man
who'll make the Douks not slack
In keeping all our laws also their shirts
upon their backs.
When laws that govern this fair land are
0   cast aside as naught
And when an exiled   alien   band whom
freedom we have taught
Will break our laws   and   run   our land
and slap us in the face
The time has come for all of us  to keep
. them in their place.

I Ought!
1���I OUGHT to belong to the Church because I ought to be better
than I am. Henry Wafd Beecher once said, "The Church is not a
gallery for the .exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for
the education of imperfect ones."
2���I OUGHT to belong- to the Church because of what I can give
to it and do throug-h it as well-as because of what I may get out of it.
The Church is not a dormitory for sleepers, it is an institution of
workers; it is not a rest camp, it is a front line trench.     '   y
3���I OUGHT to belong to the Church because every man ought to
pay his debts and do his share toward discharging the obligations of
society. The Church not only has been the bearer of good news of
personal salvation; it has been and it is the supreme uplifting and
conserving agency without which "civilization would lapse into
barbarism and press its way to perdition." W
4���I OUGHT to belong to the Church because of memories; memories of things I can never forget; memories of faces that will never
fade; memories of vows that are the glory bf youth.
5���I OUGHT to belong to the Church because of hope; hope that
lives when promises are dead; hope that paves the way for progress;
hope that visions peace and social,justice; hope for time.'and hope
for eternity���the great hope that casts its anchor behind Jesus
6���1 OUGHT to belong to the Church because of the strong men
in it who need reinforcing; the weak men in it who need encourag1-
ing; the rascals in it who need rebuking. If I say that I am not
good enough my humilitj1- recommends me. If I sit ih the seat of
the scornful my activity condemns me. "' ,
7���I OUGHT to .belong to the Church, but not until lam ready to
join a going concern; not until I am willing to become an active
partner with Jesus Christ.
