Greenwood  District
Hospital.
The meeting held in the Greenwood Theatre last Friday night
was well attended by an interested
and enthusiastic^ audience and
judging by tbe tone ot the various
speakers- the establishment of a
-hospital in the district seemed an
acknowledged necessity. Mayor
Gulley occupied the chair and G.
S. Walters acted as secretary. The
Mayor, stated that the object of the
tneetiug of the citizens was to'fid.d
their opiuion in reference to the
hospital question, and ta, see if
they were willing to endorse the
action off the Council as far as they
had gone.
. The Mayor gave a clear and concise description bf the wort achieved
by ^ the Council, he also d^cribed
fthe difficulties pro and con, which
the citizens would have to face, bat'
concluded these difficulties could be
overcome if all worked diligently.
G. 1$. Walters went more fully
into detail and described ways and
means that would, assist in financing the project.
P. H. McCurrach reviewed the
situation clearly, and moved that
the meeting endorse the action of
the Council as far as it had gone in
tryiDg to eRtabliBh a hospital.''
George Bryan seconded the mo-"
tion which wa3 carried unanimous-
ly:
��� The Mayor ih reply, reported
that now the policy of the City
Council was 'endorsed," it.Vwas in
order for the meeting to nominate
to suitable men to act on the Board
of Management,._ He stated that
as the^Hospital was under Government control, ������ the government
would elect two members to the
Board'and the citizens two. On
the motion'of James Kerr seconded
by J. Keady, A. Legault, of Anaconda,' was elected, as also G. S.
Walters:
Speeches were made by' various
citizens among them being Messrs.
Keir, Kerr, Rev.'Walkinshaw and
A. J.Morrison^ offering suggestions
for and 8gainst. ' Mts. Fleming
spoke for the ladies, and said she
was T pleasfid to . se^ the men of
Greenwood had, woke np at last
andswere endeavoring to. benefit
the community by establishing a
Hospital-, which she considered was
,very badly needed.
The singing of -the National Anthem brought the meeting to a
close.
Anaconda School  Matters
Last Thursday evening John
McKie, M.P.P., met some of the
Anaconda property owners to discuss the amalgamation of that
school District with Greenwood.
^ E. F. Keir was elected chairman
and explained the reason for tbe
meeting. C. Nichols quoted Inspector Sheffield's figures giving
Greenwood assessment value $115-��
000 and Greenwood school tax .rate
as 19 mills, and Anaconda assessment at 17-8,000 and that Greenwood also used $500 from other
taxes for school purposes. As part
of Anaponda was to go into Boundary Falls District, the rate for tlie
combined district --��� would be at
least 15 mills.
/Iff section 71 of thefPublic School
Act could be made to "apply, the
tax inf Anaconda, based on the
number of pupils .attending Greenwood school, would be "approximately 5 or 9 millB, depending on
whether the cost per pupil was
based on actual cost to Greenwood
k)r included the government's grant
of $200 to Greenwood. It appearedv
that saving $1000 of government
money would ba- very expensive
for Anaconda taxpayers as well as
a hardship on the children.
S. Bombini explained h^w it '
.would effect him, and that his taxes
would amount to rental, if the district were joined to Greenwood.
, Mrs. Williamson asked what the
j.School Act said in regard to closing
schools, and,, it was pointed out
that Section .12 (c) gave the Council
of Instruction to power fo enlarge
Districts, but section 12 (d) seemed
to say that .the consent of the diB-
tricts-waa necessary.
H. Ellis and F. Malletta spoke
favoring some action which would
avoid the greatly increased taxation
resulting from amalgamation with
Greenwood.
John McKie  suggested   that  a
committee be chosen to take this
matter dp with the Department and
he promised to do all in his power '
to assist them.
E, F. Keir,7Mrs. Williamson, S.
Bombini and H. Ellis.were appointed a,committee for.this purpose.
, A. vote'of thanks was passed for
Mr, McKie's kindness in attending
and for his interest in the matter.

Tjso managers tb tbe Hospital
Board were elected in the "persons
of Mrs. H. H. Pannell and A. J
Lander. The meeting terminated
with the singing, of the National
Anthem.
Where do you spend your Sunday evenings? Why not-spend
an hour in church? Over fifty
people enjoyed the service, last
Sunday, but the efturch can seal
twice that cumber comfortably.

Congratulated  By King

The King ha; sent a message lo
Rear-Adniirai Frederick Field congratulating the special, service squadron on lhe conclusion of its Empire-
wide cruise. His Majesty says: "1
wish to express to you warm congratulations on ihe success which has
attended this memorable cruise. You
have proved yourselves worthy representatives of the rtritisli navy aud
have maintained the best traditions
of ihe juiij in many distant lands. 1
thank you and tluse under your command for the great sen ice vou have

admiral lo vice-admiral ol" the fleet.
This, however, is to follow the retirement, of Rear-Admiral 11. L. ,Mawbey,
wlio was noi directly connected with

Sir Frederick- Field and oilier oilicers ol" the special service squadron,
in individual statements io life press,
avoid touching on the question of Dominion naval participation,, or upon

or the whole-heirted devotion of Ihe

Toronto Mother Found Relief
by Taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
, Vegetable Compound .
Toronto, Ontario.���" I have found
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a splendid medicine to take before
and after confinement. A small book
���was put in my door one day advertising
Lydia E. Pinkham's medicines, and as I
did not feel at all well at the time I went
and got a bottle of Vegetable Compound
right away. I soon began to notice a
difference in my general health. I was
full of aches .and pains at the time and
thought I had every complaint going,
but lean truthfully say your medleine
certainly did me good. I can and will
speak highly of it, and I know it will
do other women good who arc sick
and ailing if they will only give it a fair
trial. Lydia E: Pinkham's Liver Pills
are splendid for constipation;^ You are
welcome to use my letter if yon think
it will help any one."���-Mrs. Harry

considers carefully this statement of
Mrs. West wood. It is but one of a great
many, all telling the same story���beneficial results. -. ���' -
' Lvdia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Coffl-

Queer^ Motor Car Made
By German Engineer
Has Driver's Seat In Front and Engine
At Rear .
A motor car resembling a fish, on
wheels caused a stir in a quiet court
ot the Temple r.cently, where it was
parked while its occupant paid .a visit
near by.
It had no tail,,but tit each side of its
blunt nose were iwo miniature fins.
Another curious-point abo'tit the car
was ihe engine, situated over.'the back
axle.   -        ^        - \ ,
Our representative found ou inquiry that the car was one of'two recently made by Dr. Rumpler-Taube,
the German eugmeer. whose firm made
the_ famous Taube" aeroplane. It had
been brought over to ihis country by a
London engineer, to show lo his'
friends.
When asked to explain ihe unusual
shape of ihe car, the engineer said:
"Hitherto the slreamline of cars has
been all wrong.*" The motor manufacturers thought that all there was io be
done was to take the horse from the
front of a vehicle and put an engine
in its placo.   "
"The car 1? shaped to give ihe lea si
Possible resisutcfee to wind, and its
lines are based on the shape of a drop
of water falling through the air. Unlike ti racing car, the blunt end is in
Iront, and ihe narrower end ai the
back."
"What actual difference does ii all
make from an eiliciency point of
view?" asked our Daily Chronicle representative, .
"I really do not know, as 1 have not
tested it yet," was the reply, "i am
told il lessens wind resistance very
considerably indeed���in fact, I have'
brought it over here because of die
phenomenal claims made fof~It."
The engineer, Taunton, added tliat
the ear is not on the market, though
it wiil 'shortly be for sale in Rerlin. -
Optimism'Combined With Hard Work
f' Makes. For Success     ~   '      .
^ "Optimist or pessimist, wliich shall
it be?" asks .Cardinal Mercier, Archbishop of -Mnlincsf, Belgium, writing
of present world conditions" and the
world needs.. ' _,
He reiterates .his words to_Jns fellow countrymen in the darkest days of
the war���"Be confident in spite of'ulj."
The Cardinal-urges everyone to Jceep
head erect, and heart steady; discouragement, he says, has never begotten
energy, and energy alone breeds
i Humph.
It is in this latter statement dial
die Cardinal stands on solid ground.
Optimism is all lighl inv its place:
it gives you the spirii of hope. llut
real success must have a" basis of
hard I fixture. It must have work as
ils founda'tion, plenty of work���work
with a spirii, that ever lires, work
Willi a purpose that never^relenfs.
Uy itself optimism achieves nothing;,
most idlers use il as u refuge...M.icaw-
bcr, you will recall, was always looking for something to turn up to belter
his fortunes; he professed.faith In tomorrow, so he idled away today. '
True optimism, achieving, wordi-
while_optimism, is- having faith "In
the 'reward of effort; It must not be.
confused with the rainbow-chasing optimism of thoso who sit-and'wait ior
success to follow mere wishes for success. "Ro men of ..energy," writes
Cardinal Mercier, "be steadfast, . b*f
optimistic."
When optimism is combined wiih
these other - qualities it overcomes
all obstacles, it clears the road io
achievement.���JCew Vork Telegram

^- On' Necessityi%For British Publicity
Commenting on Uie interview with

Ties llautes. -Etudes Coirimerciales,
publlsbpd in The-,. Gazette, .regarding
the. proposfid-opeription throughout the
Biiti&K Isles of'a'Cana'di.anluotor train
similar, to that operated jn France by
the- CanadTan Government and rail-
-waya last year, Mr. - R. W. Beatty,
K.C., ^resident'-of, the Canadian Pacific Railway, expressed sympathy with
the project, aud stated thai if the Canadian Pacific was approached by the
Government to co-operate-in such a
scheme, he would be willing.to recommend it and assist it to a reasonable
extent.    r ' -  '
' "Wc all appreciate, 1" think," said
Mr. Beatty, "tliat anything that can
be done to stimulate' the right class
of immigrants fiom Great liritain, will
be a step in the right direction. British immigration, while showing an improvement over last year', is yet" disappointing, and while thc Government,
the Canadian Pacific and the Canadian
National have been, r.nd are doing
what it is possible "to do, yet I j\m
fully aware that there are iinny~tlis-
irictsrespeclally in th'e" northern portions oi' Scotland and Ireland, where
little is known_about the opportunities for agriculturists in this country.
On a small scale, with one exlnbition
van, "we have been covering parts of
England for years,""but so thickly are
the-towns and villages located, and so
greafe the population lhat it has been
manifestly impossible to reach other
than a small ponion of the people.
."The Brirish Empire Kxposllion
which closes this month at "Wembley
has brought Canada prominently, before all tlipsc.who had the good for
tune to attend it aa well as to ma ay
through the medium of the daily and
weekly press, but only a very small
proportion of the population���that i%
the class of people whom we desire to
interest���either visited the exposition
or were reached through the Brit Mi
press.
-"I do not favor" Uie operation of a
full train of 30 motor vans, as was
done in France, but rather the operation of eight iff" ten exhibition vans
displaying. Canada's natural?resources
and agricultural products as well ris
an" apparatus to enabl-a a; daily pio-
je.ction of motor picture filuis in the
open air. - Our exhibits at Wembley
Exposition were productive of general publicity, but- the operation of a.
motor train as f-rggested, would bring
Canada in direct touch with millions
of people. " In the"-towns and villages
or France, J understand, everybody
turned oitt'; it was a free exhibition
and entertaibment-and-naturally "drew,
the public. ^Busing the-past summer;
our owiT-^xblbltlon ran covered nearly 2,500 miles in Southern,.Ce'ii'tral.a,nd
Northern, England, visited 134- cities;
towns and villages, and attended 39-
agiicultural shows. It began,tb operate-early in May, aad continued until
the end of August.
"What we have bct-n able to-4oi .wiife.
good results, on.* small scale," concluded Mr. Beatty, "should be prcduc-
fire of greater results on a large scale,.

Coroner's Jury Exonerates
D. McPherson
Hospitals
There is no section of the community that does not benefit by
the hospitals. To the poor^they
are an obvious boon, and latterly
their direct service to the middle
classes have been greatly inci'eas-
ed by tbe plan for admitting paying patients at "fees which are
within their means. Those who
in time of sickness can afford lo
pay for the most skilled attention
have the hospitals to thank for
providing the means of training
physicians, surgeons and nurses.
The need of the hospitals effect
every one of us, and there must
surely be none who can justify "to
his own conscience the withholding of that measure of practical
assistance which he can easily
give.���London Daily Telegraph.
The coroner's jury completely
exonerated D. McPherson in connection with the death of Alex.
Jmawoff, a Doukhobor, who was
fatally injured Saturday night in
a collision between his bi cycle
and Mr. McPherson's car.   _.
The verdict of the jury was as
follows:
"That the deceased, Ales.
Jmawoff, came to his death on
Oct. lltb, 1924, as the result of a
collision of the bicycle on which
he was riding with an automobile
driven by Dougald McPherson.
"That we find the collision
unadvoidable on the part of Mr.
McPherson and purely accidental.
"The jury recommends that
the street corner at which the accident happened be better lighted;
also that all bicycles and othetv
vehicles be required, to carry
lights at night on any highway.''

THIS SEASON'S  TRANS-CANADA  MILEAGE
EQUALLED THREE  TRIPS TO THE MOON
The Trans-Canada - Limited, the crack transcontinental express
of tlie, Canadian Pacific Railway, operated from Slay to September, completed its 1924 schedule on September 13th, when its
last-trains started and on September 17th these trains steamed
into the termini at Montreal and Vancouver, bringing to a close '.
one of the service's most successful seasons. Tlie train covers . .
the 2,886 miles of its run between the two cities in 90 hours aiid ���.-
fits, Toronto-Vancouver, run of 2,707 miles in 8G hours./-;
: X -��� Mr.- C:-B.-Foster,". Passenger" Traffic 'Manager, summing .up- .'
the season's performance, gave.'out some remarkably interesting.f.
- figures- which- afford/a partial .insight into the -magnitude .of. the
task- of maintaining such-a service.  . The- Trans-Canada' Limited.;'
began -its. runs, this/year- on'.May 18th,..and;before- being di.scon-  .
tinued.made 1.1.9 trips in each ..direction;, br.7 238'-"in', all..-..  The   f
.equipment of the train.is-limited to one,baggage,-one dining csir,    -
four" standard sleepers; one-ip-rcompartmciit car Vancouver to -
"Montreal,. and. one- iOrCompartment car   Toronto" to .Winnipeg,   .
with'.a drawing room-3-compa'rtment observation sleeper.Mout-'"
'real to Vancouver,  plus  a  local. sleeper 'on. .the  west-bound    ���
..movement-only from Fort William to Winnipeg. . .Thus the- niaxi- - '
mum. accommodation available., in-each'..direction between the ;
East- and -Winnipeg.is fbrty-pight sections, twenty-three .com-_y
-partme'nts'.and five. dra"wingirq"o"msrwhiie: between .Winnipeg arid ������
the-Coast there" are forty-eight' sections; thirteen compartments f- ���
and five drawing-rooms.    ' The: average number of-passengers.-
on the train at ..night varies, from seventy-five to 110 o.n different'-7
"sections' of the line, but for the"'119 .days: the train was fin, service ,
last season there, was a one-night use of .approximately 100.000 berths.- .The
east-bound andfwest-bound-train's together covered.6,292 miles every day,
which includes the distance between Montreal and Vancouver,' 2,886 miles,'
and between Toronto and Sudbury; 260. miles, covered by each train and its
Toroiito^SudbuiT connection, f Thus the-season's mileage was-758,748 for
the'238.trips,, or three.'tlmes the distance^from the earth to .the -mooh.'V;"
ftnch day four Trans-Canada:tralhs were in motion.over tlie Company's
lines in each direction."..Ai 8 A.M. each day,; one was west-bound between
Cartior and Chapleau, one between Kenora' arid Winnipeg, one between Medicine Hat and Calgary, and onc-be'ween North Bondfand Vancouver'; while at
that. hour..oue. east-bourid -was. approaching   Glacier,   o?te ..approaching

W The. year's schedule called for 22-changes of..engine on every Trans-.
Canada_ run> from   Montreal   to   Vancouver - and two. engines ;for . tie
Tordnto-Sudbury .connection made by each1 train.7 There were 48 engine.
iuris daily for the service.* Including these engine-stops, the. trains made .
only 26'stops ohHheir .whole,run.'-������.-It is on this steady movement at a
uniform speed over, long distances'.- and not on high speed that the trains
maintained their fast schedules oveY-the transcontinental journey, and the
elimination. of all but essential stops resulted in the smooth running for
which it is noted.     Owing to the necessity of - changing .trains crewa bri,
such- a long run, about 14 crews; or, about 84 men, .were requi*d for. one
trip on each, train, while 48   sleeping   and dining-car employees were
required for-each trip on;ohe train.or nearly 400 men for this branch of the
Trans-Canada service.,    None of the. hundreds of-employees whose duties

Tourist business throughout Canada has been remarkably productive this year and it is estimated'
that its total value for the Dominion will exceed $100,000,000.
This places the touriet traffic high
among Canada's industries.
The "Princess Kathleen", one of
the two fi$e steamers under construction for the Canadian Pacific
Hallway's British Columbia coastal!
service, was launched at Glasgow,'
Scotland, on September 27th. Lady
Mount Stephen,. widow of Lord-
Mount Stephen, former president of
this company, performed the launching ceremony.
As an indication of how plentiful
wild game has become of recent
years in the Province of Quebec
comes a report from Montreal,
which ceeords the recent appearance'
of a full-grown bull moose in Rose-
mount, a suburb of the city. It is
thought to _ have strayed into the
neighborhood from the forest to the
north. The animal was quite tame
and was easily captured.
The Duke of Alba, who, with
other Spanish grandees, recently
completed an extensive tour of Canada, purchased a number ' of very
valuable furs for gifts to be presented to his friends, including tha
King and Queen of Spain. The furs
were acquired while the Duke .was
sojoui-ning at Banff, the popular-
mountain -resort on the Canadian Pacific main line. "
