Cash Prizes Offered
For Forestry Essays
The Canadian Forestry Association has announced a prize essay
competition for the school'children
of Canada whereby rewards of $25,
$15 and $10 will be given in each
of the nine provinces to those writing the most intelligent essays
dealing with some phase of forestry
or tree planting based on local
The object of the competition is
to stimulate study and enquiry as
to the forest resources of Canada
and their protection against the
devastation of fire; the planting of
trees on urban streets; the establishing and improving of farm
wood lots; and the developing of
tree planting on the bare prairies.
Full particulars of the competition will be sent to every school
teacher in the Dominion and replies should be in the hands of the

Too much importance can hardly
be attached to the development of
districts adjoining Greenwood.
The greater the prosperity there
the more will advantages accrue to
this city, likewise Jhe more populous1' Greenwood becomes the
greater the market for the rural
population. No stronger argument
could be offered for co-operation.
More interest should be taken in.
the development of our surrounding country.   This would be real
community work.    It requires the
sacrifice of time and much thought
which otherwise could be devoted
to the giver's own business.    Who
arelhe "men who freely give their
lime to public affiaire?   Frequently
here,  as elsewhere,   they can   be
numbered among the most influential, if not the wielders of the
largest enterprises of a community!
It seems to follow therefore, that
often   the   excuse  of   '-no time"
could more   truthfully   be   stated
"no inclination."   To the citizens
of Greenwood>nd residents of the
surrounding   districts,   this; is   a
worth-while thought.
The Board of Trade might be
able to arrange out-of town meetings or hold a big district convention and among many other affairs
of importance to consider would be
the marketing of produce. Also
suggestions could be received for
advancing rural development work.
It might also be a good idea to
send out a questionaire regarding
the best plans- for community
development.~~~'"~ '" ""���*���** -

Lady Astor
Makes Appeal
British   Woman   M.P.   Pleads   for   Redress of Wrongs to Women and
"I don't tell men what they want to
know; I tell them what they need to
know," declared Lady Astor, member
of the British House of Commons, in
addressing a large throng of Toronto's
feminine clubs and organizations in
Convocation Hall. This distinguished visitor told the audience just what
she thinks about women and men.
Miss Agnes Maephail, only lady
member of the Canadian House of
Commons, also was present and there
was a peculiar bond of sympathy prevalent between tlie two women. Perhaps no two people ever had I'or the
time being so much in common.
"I sometimes feel very lonely," said
Miss MacPhail.
"I know, I know," Lady Aslor's gesture spoke for her.
Lady Astor was sketchy on her
own politics, but urged women lo
forget parties when general moral
problems were concerned. She ended with a strong plea for more Christian fulfillment of their beliefs by
professed Christians.     \
Dealing with the Cliveden home of
the Astor's in England, which was
turned over to the military for a
hospital, and where Lady Astor and
General S. C. Mewburn went through
the process of "winding red tape
straight," Lady Astor said.
"There is a-bit of Cliveden that is
'forever Canada.'" She had said
when in Chicago that she dreaded
speaking to a Canadian audience,
meaning that Canada had a very special place in her heart and one good
.soul immediately procured for her
help in trouble, "5,000 facts' about
"Yes, you laugh," said the speaker.
"That woman did not understand
that to speak about something we
love, hurts, when i( has meant what
it did."
In Lady Astor's vivid words one
saw the mighty young giant Canada,
surging overseas gay and gallant;
one saw the flower of her youth,
spent and dying, or bolstered up for
one more fight by tender hands at
Cliveden and elsewhere. She made
her audience laugh one moment by
the recital of a backwoodsman's proposal to her. He was obstreporous
about staying on the bed and she was
sent to scold him. "You're the sort
of woman I want to take back with
me to my cottage as my wife." "
The next instant Lady Astor Iiatl
caught the hearts of sorrowing
wives and mothers in one mighty
loving grip���and they rose up and
thanked her, just as the individual
woman did later. She inspired them
by reminding them of what public
life might mean; of the peace that
women stood for; of the things they
had to fight for until they could
make men see the need for joint redress   of    age-old wrongs to women
and children. She touched on the
returned soldier problem. "If only
you wouldn't go home with a grievance! I used to tell them. But
what is man without a grievance?"
Vimy Ridge
f  ;"'
Where the  Price of  Nationhood Was
Paid and the  Link of Nationhood
King George has been paying a
visit to Vimy Ridge. Many Canadians have vivid recollections of Arinry
Hklge. It overlooked the village of
Vimy and the town of Lens; the Arras road ran past quite near, and
some farming country spread itself
Westwards, with trees and farms and
What the Canadian ..who know
most of Vimy Ridge reinember about
it are the shell holes, the mine holes,
the blasted fields, the mud, the debris
ot war, the bits of broken guns and
rifles, the bits of broken human bodies, rotting horses, splintered caisson
The Canadian division stormed
Vimy Ridge, and took it. They
made their preparations under German gunfire; they lost, a lot of men
when they drove the Germans out of
their positions on the ridge. If was
hell at Vimy Ridge when the Canadians took it; hell boiling red and
running over; tliere were no larks
singing above Vimy Ridge on that
Everything is quiet there now, ojnl
die travellers may walk up the green
slope and see the smoke curl up from
the chimneys in Vimy village, and
watch the traflic on the Arras road,
and look at thc monument to the fallen; there are lots of Canadians still
on Vimy Ridge, their bones incorpor-
| ated with alien soil; and as often as
Canadian thoughts turn to Vimy
Ridge'it is to think of it as one of the
places where the price of nationhood
was paid and where the link of nationhood was forged.���AVinnipeg Free

Grasshopper Warning
Startling Announcement Made by
���Alberta University  Professor
"Unless farmers in Southern Alberta , adopt an active campaign
against grasshoppers there will nofbe
any crops this year in that part of
This was the startling announcement made ^���E.'H, Strickland, professor of entomology at the University
of Alberta, who.is again in charge of
combating the menace in/Alberta,
working under the Department of
Agriculture. \
"The whole thing is entirely in the
hands of the farmers," said Mr.
Strickland, "and it is solely up to
them to see that all grasshoppers'
breeding grounds are effectively poisoned. The whole oC -the infested
area lias heen blanketed and no less
than twenty-two ' agents have been
appointed, who will have nothing to
do but to attend to the extermination
of the hoppers."
Mr. Strickland stated that thc late
season this year had been unfortunate i'rom their point of" view. There
was now not, much chance of the
yo*dng insects being killed off by
irost after hatching out. On account
of the late season it was not probable
that the hoppers -would hatch out until the beginning of June. He mentioned this, owing to the fact that as
few farmers had so far come across
them, they seemed to have the impression that they will not now make
their appearance.
"Last year," ho said, "as many as
2,000 eggs were found in a 'square
foot of ground. This year, owing to
the cause I have mentioned, unless
preventable, measures -are���adopted,
the number will be at least 5,000."
Red Snow in Rockies
Effect   is   Produced   by   Presence   of
Myriads of Tiny Organisms'
Last summer red snow made its ap
pearance in the Rocky Mountain- Na
tional Park to the wonder of tourists.
The great masses of color present in
the snow fields of the higher eleva
tions, says the ��� Scientific American,
are due to billions of tiny organisms,
half plant, half animal, that have the
power of movement, growth and reproduction.
.The organism is an Arctic species
known as Protococcus nivalis, and it
has been found in Grazier and Mount
Kainer National Parks .only within
lhe past decade. The color reaches
its maximum density about a quarter-
of an inch below the' surface of the
snow; on the. tongue its'flavor suggests watermelons. It is a mystery
how the spore traversed such great
distances," but it is supposed'to have
travelled on tlie Chinook winds.

Embargo On-
European Bees
Steps Taken to Prevent Introduction
of Disease
There is not at present, so far as
known, any case of the "Isle of
Wight" disease among bees in Canada, and steps have been taken by the
Dominion Minister of Agriculture to
prevent its introduction in this country. What is known is that it has
existed in several European countries
for some years. This fact has been
directly brought to official knowledge,
both in Canada and the United States,
by a sample of live bees, imported
from Scotland, being sent to the Bureau of Entomology in Washington,
D.C., which on examination were
found to contain living mites which
are the embodiment. of thc disease,
thc worst phase of which is that no
treatment has been discovered that
can safely be recommended for its
eradication and certainly of. control.
The insidiousness of the disease is
emphasized by the mites being so
small as to be invisible to the naked
eye and consequently beyond the general recognition of the beekeeper.
From these facts will be readily
recognized the importance of immediate action being taken to safeguard
bees from a disease which, once introduced, may prove widely destructive of the honey industry of the
country, i .The subject was considered at tlie meeting of the American
Association of Economic Entomologists in Toronto last fall and a committee was appointed to further consider
the matter. This committee met in
Washington:' and upon its suggestion
the importation into- Canada from any
European country',was prohibited; on
the order of the Minister of Agriculture for the Dominion, of Bees, used
or second-hand hives, raw hive goods
or products, excepting honey and wax,
from the first of the present month.
While the importation of bees from
Europe has hitherto been on a very
small scale, consisting principally of
Italian queen bees for breeding purposes, it is nevertheless desirable
that every possible channel by which
disease might enter should be closed.
Do You Know a Sunfish When You*��ge It?
1-1E sunfish is a member of the Globefish family, and Pimzie learned
this after his wonderful play and rest among the rocks that had been
uncovered by the low tide. . . . when he learned all about everything concerning Hermit Crabs. What a good time he'had-had!
He hated the mere thought of leaving the place, and yet he had to,
because at last the tide was coming in���which, as you know, it does every
twelve hours, just as it goes out again after the same lapse of time. So,
tide coming in and Pimzie perforce going out, he naturally was on the lookout for new things to learn about. He had watched Hermit-Crabs until he
really was tired, and that is unusual for any Brownie. He had seen them
light about nothing (which they are always more than anxious and willing to
do), and he had seen them battle about the homes they lived in, had.;lived in
or were wanting to live in. Such fights! He had seen some of'them ter-7
ribly wounded and torn in half, while the" victors triumphantly took posses-^
sion of the empty shell; and he had seen other things, too! And one of them
reminded him of once when he had been on Fifth Avenue, in New York City,
and when looking in a shop window had beheld a Japanese screen that had
been so beautifully painted and landscaped that for a moment as he gazed at
it lie-almost thought himself beyond the city limits and far away near the
ocean. In any case, he wished himself there,-arid thought of fields aud birds
and flowers and waters and fish and reeds. ..___
Can you guess what he saw? v
He was leaning against some
rocks overlooking a patch of
water which'the sun directly
struck, and Tight there, where
he could so distinctly see them,
a whole,school o'f Sunfish were
lazily basking and swimming in
the sun warmed waters. They
went around and. around, none
of them hurrying and none of
them lagging behind the others;
and Pimzie, who in spite of being full of mischief is just as
full of love of the unusual and
beautiful, could hardly breathe;
he was far too busy looking! It
was almost exactly like the design on the beautiful Japanese
screen that he remembered.

"Fingerprints" of a Cow's Nose
New Method of Identification of the

According to a plan instituted in
Minneapolis lately, more than 2,000
prints of cow's nose have becn filed.
William E. Peterson, superintendent
of the official testing bureau of that
State, says nose prints are as infallible as fingerprints, and that every
pedigreed cow should be so registered.
Tlie chairman of the International
Association of Identification and, editor of the Detective, said that the plan
is receiving such favorable support in
Minnesota that it will become national. ,
"I have gone into the matter and I
find that a cow's nose never changes,"
he said, "it is the same as with fingerprints. ' So many purchasers have
been swindled by substitution of low
"grade stock for pure blooded, that the
wise purchaser hereafter will look for
a nose-print identification." .

Special Care of Baby.
That Baby should h^ve a bed of its own all are agreed. Yet it
is more reasonable for an infant to sleep with grown-ups than to use
a man's medicine in an attempt to regulate the delicate organism of
that same infant. Either practiced to be shunned. Neither would
be tolerated by-specialists in children's-diseases.
Your Physician will tell you that Baby's medicine must be
prepared with even greater care than Baby's food.
��� A Baby's stomach when in good health is too often disarranged
by improper food.' Could you for a moment, then, think of giving
to your ailing child anything but a medicine especially prepared
iorjnfants and Children ? Don't be deceived.
Make a mental note of this:���-It is .important, Mothers, that
you should remember that to function well, xtbe digestive organs of
your Baby must receive special care. Ho Baby is so abnormal that
the desired results may be had from the use of medicines primarily
prepared for grown-ups. -

Says- Viscount Grey '
London���-Viscount Grey, former
Foreign Secretary, in a letter to the
Liberal Federation meeting excusing
his absence, comments on the Genoa
conference as providing an example
of what should be avoided. To secure the. ends desired, he contends, a
closer understanding with.France and
the co-operation of the United States
were essential.
"I cannot believe that either of
these powers would not have shown
genuine good will had they been
consulted beforehand," he continues.
"This omission greatly impaired, il
it did not destroy, the conference.
France was filled with distrust and
America refused to participate at all.
The conference thus became a sort of
I political international gamble.
"I continue to believe that an understanding with France and the
good will, of the United States is the
only sound foundation for economic
reconstruction" and -peace. Both these
essential conditions have been rendered more difficult-or.less likely by
the Genoa conference."

the document provides that the truce

of four months after adjournment of

previously understood that The Hague

This extension is also considered a

wrote that the gift, in addition to its

Ottawa.���Following a discussion
the House of Commons passed railway appropriations totalling approximately ninety millions- of dollars. Of
the total thus voted for the Government railway system, $42,800,000 is
foi- the Canadian National; $25,750,000
for the Grand Trunk; and $15,900,000
lor the Grand Trunk Pacific. An
item of $7,000,000 on Canadian Government Railways still remains to be
voted, however, and on this there may;
be more discussion.
During the general debate, Hon. W.
C. Kennedy, Minister of Railways, announced that revised figures gave the
actual deficit for last year on all
Government lines, including , the
G.T.R., as $72,662,27S. For the previous year the deficit was $74,378,315.
The deficit includes fixed charges except on the I.C.R., the N.T.R., between Winnipeg and Monclon, and
on the Hudson's Bay Railway.
Mr. MacLean declared that he had
been an upholder of public ownership
since his gentry into public lite. It
was a reveration to! him to find in the
House 60 or 75 men who were a solid
bloc in favor oi' public ownership.
Service was the underlying principle
of public ownership but private ownership sought profits very often on
watered stock. He explained that
he made this statement with no intention of reflecting on the Canadian
Pacific Railway which was a successful privately owned corporation.
There had been much talk of .-frequent
cutting of' melons in connection with
the "Canadian Pacific Railway. The-!
shareholders not only received their
10 per cent, profit but they*, also received their share of the melons.

Mr. Maclean declared that-a, great   '*
wave of public ownership was sweeping over the world.     The system had "
vindicated   itseir   in   Europe and in
Australia.   Those who would not see
it were blind and did not want to see
the-truth.      If the Canadian'Pacific

equally good board could not be pro- *

The overseer demanded a full investigation and Mr. 2Ceill asked that the
