Davis, an old forty-niner, for the long and well, and we only knew
placer   excitement in ^Cariboo in him to esteem him more highly as
the spring of 1862.   He was not as
successful in mining ventures as he miss his kindly smile and friendly
had anticipated, and in the fall of greeting; we long in vafn to hear
the same year left the mines and
took up farming on the Fraser
river below New Westminster. In
1882 he came to the Okanagan
country and started a business, at
Landstown, but there his building
was destroyed by fire, at once,
however, being rebuilt and his
business continued with success.
Later removing to Armstrong, he
practically founded that town on
hie own ranch. In 1895, coming
to the present site of Greenwood
to investigate the outlook for mining and trading in this locality,,he
was very much impressed both by
the resources of the mineral district
and the natural advantages offered
for a townsite, and at once began
the work, of laying out a new town.
This has been his home since that
time. The townsite was owned by
firm of R. Wood and Company,
Mr; Wood having sold a large part
of the land to C. Scott Galloway.
Greenwood is now a substantial
and prosperous town, with many
improvements and advantages as a
residence and business center, and
its prosperity has in large measure
been due to Mr. Wood's public
spirited enterprise.
He and a nnmber of other citizens of Greenwood being owners of
a lot of new mining property in the
west fork of the Kettle river, fifty
miles west of Greenwood/ it was
evident to Mr. Wood that nothing
could be done in developing the
mining resources- of "this district
until transportation was provided.
After an ineffectual interview with
tbe Canadian Pacific officials, who
gave him no encouragement in the
matter, he himself studied out a
scheme for building a railroad from
Vernon to Midway via West Fork,
and after a careful examination of
the field to be covered by the* enterprize he became convinced of the
vast benefit to all the country involved. After his plans were
formed he at ence took a number
of his associates, obtained in 1901,
a charter and a bonus of $4000 per
mile, then in 1902, a renewal of
the charter with improved conditions and a subsidy- of 85000 per
mile constructed, and in 1903 succeeded in getting a Dominion charter a subsidy of $6000 a mile. After
overcoming many difficulties snd
discouragements it was a matter of
pride with Mr. Wood tp state that
on August 1905, the road was under construction and he saw, the
first car of ore shipped, to the
Greenwood smelter.
The late Mr. Wood was materially assisted in his many projects

Big Lump Silver Ore
From B.C. Mine Shown
"A Inmp of almost pure silver
ore, weighing abont a quarter of a
pound, was the exhibit J. V. Mills,
manager of the Bank of Montreal
at Greenwood, B.C., showed the
Free Press on Saturday, at an in-,
stance of the mineral richness of
this part of the Western province.
The sample, he stated, came, from
the Bell mineral claim at Beaverdell, now owned and worked by
Duncan . Mcintosh and P. W.
Crane. The�� claim was located
many years ago, aud sold by the
prospector, for a bagatelle of its
value.- After being-closed down-
for quite a while, the mine was reopened by the present owners, who
have taken out between $200,000
and 8300,000 worth of high grade
silver ore, Mr. Mills stated. On
the third car, 37 tons, shipped
there was a profit qf $18,000.
Beaverdell is iu the Yale district a
few miles from Greenwood.
"Bight in Greenwood. Mr. Mills
pointed out,- is the Providence and
Tarn O'Shan ter mines. The for-
mer was operated during the war
years by Morrison & McGillis, who
leased the property from the owJP
ere, Chicago capitalists. During
that time they paid $50,000 in
royalties. Some difficulties arising
in connection with the releasing of
the mine, they located a claim for
themselves, and, according to Mr.
Mills, this new development is go��
ing to bring Greenwood into prominence again as a mining centre.
"We want to Bhow the people of
Winnipeg what  we  have,"   Mr.
        ^ Mills stated, uand to assure them

Convinced Tanlac Is
"I am convinced that Tanlac is a
wonderful . medicine because it has
becn more than a year now since I
took it, but it toned up my entire system .so well['that I am still in the best
oHiealth," said Miss Maie Reed, popular saleslady, residing at 406 Kennedy Street, Winnipeg,  Manitoba.
"I dislike to have my name in" the
paper, but Tanlac lias helped mc so
much that I actually feel it my duty
to express my gratitude, so want everybody to know about my case. Nearly a year and a half ago, while I was
living in Regina, my health broke
down completely. I had rheumatic
fever and for eight months was flat
on my back in bed, unable to move
an inch.     I finally'got up out of bed,
but was so weak I seemed to have no
energy at all. My appetite was gone
and instead of getting better I just
.worried along, getting worse, if anything. I could get no sound sleep
and just felt miserable all tlie time.
"A friend of mine finally suggested
that I try Tanlac, so I started taking
it and by the timeT,had'finished my
second bottle my appetite was simply
wonderful. I took four bottles ki all,
and all my strength and energy had
come'back to me and I was feeling
like a different person.. My health
has been fine ever since and I haven't
missed a day from my work. I can't
say too much for Tanlac."

The invitation extended by President Harding to Great Britain, France,
Italy and Japan to join with the United States in a conference to discuss
and consider ways and means of bringing about world disarmament was
hailed with joy by people of all nations. Thc whole world is weary of
war���even Germany has had all the war she wants for a long, long time.
Although the formal invitation to this conference on disarmament came
from the United States, there is hardly any question but that British influence played a large part in it. It is even open to question whether the
initiative in tlie matter did not come from Britain, where, however, it was
realized that the extending of such an invitation by the United States would
not be viewed with thc same suspicion by other European powers as would
be the case if Great Britain made it.
Such a conference as has been proposed can hardly fail to be productive
of much good, even though-it may fall far short of actually achieving world
disarmament. The millenium has not yet come, and it is too much to hope
that all nations are ready to abandon all war-like forms of national defence.
During the Great War it was a frequently voiced expression: "This is a war
to end war." But conditions still prevailing in Europe and Asia seem to
preclude the immediate possibility of disbanding all armies.
France, thc victim of German iiwasion twice within thc memory of many
men still living,��is far from being convinced that the day for maintaining
an army of defence is passed. Russia is commonly credited with now possessing the largest army in the world, and under the present Bolshevik regime
.; cannot be depended upon for one moment. Should all other nations disarm, dictators of the Lcnine and Trotsky type might seize the opportunity
to ride roughshod over Europe: Poland, rejoicing in its new-found freedom, with Bolshevist Russia on the one hand, and a resentful Germany on
the other hand, is hardly likely to be willing to rely solely on Russian and
German promises of good behavior. And is the world ' willing to trust
.., But if complete disarmament is not yet possible, it ought at least to be
possible to bring about a tremendous reduction in armaments and a consequent lessening of the probabilities of war, and its horrors should it unfortunately not be entirely avoided. With the ignoble surrender of the German navy,'and its subsequent destruction, the greatest menace to the liberties of the world was removed. If the remaining naval powers���Great Britain, United States, Japan, France and Italy���can agree to put'an end lo tlie
creation of larger and more powerful navies, smash up their submarines and
put a ban on thcir further construction, a great advance step will have becii
taken, and an enormous reduction effected in the burden of taxation imposed
on the peopleof these countries.   - '    .'      .7 .   ; 7-    -.
- - Again, if an agreement-could be reached to eliminate the" aerial services
from use in Avar "a further advance step would bc taken, the horror, of future,
wars.materially reduced, and "untold millions of "money saved. ^Otherwise,
wc arc'1 going"-to witness thc expenditure of enormous sums in the perfecting
of aerial machines-of destruction; with each nation trying to-out-db and out-
invVnt the others. If in this age of marvellous inventions, the Viations:
��� could be brought into "agreement, to reduce.armaments to the old laiid.sol-
diers of past ages, eliminate all-recent-inventions such as the submarine arid
airship from war use.'-and. place theban upon the use of all future inventions
for warlike purposes,, millions of money would be saved, the terrible magnitude of the last war prevented of repetition; and much of the fascination of
war in its newer phases, removed.     - ,���      '.-.-'"-'
Greatly as"we would.like.tosee.it, there, "is grave doubt of ��� "it 7 being

Transmission of photographs and

epoch-iiKiking invention ��� have been

The first test of the invention was
the sending of a photograph of the

from the Annapolis station to France
for reproduction in Le Matin, a Paris
While the reproduction -was said to
have been fairly good, it was not as
perfect as the engineers, wished it to
be.      So another test was made.
This test was thc sending of a

Since 'the Indians first showed the
carly~settlers how to plant corn, this
toothsome vegetable has been a favorite. About now, in all-sections of
the country, corn-on-cob is to bc had.
Often the -housewife purchases
tender cars of corn and when it
comes to the table it is rather hard
and tough. This is frequently due
to thc manner of cooking. To be at
its best corn should bc served as soon
after it is  cooked as is possible.
Husk each ear and carefully remove
the growth commonly called "silk"."
Have ready a pot of boiling water.
Plunge the corn into it and cover.
Boil gently about ten minutes. About
thc last three minutes of thc cooking
add one level teaspoon qf salt for each
six ears.
Women not familiar with cooking
corn make a mistake by over cooking
it. Ten minutes is quite sufficient if
the water is really boiling. Another
error has to do with the salt. If
the salt is put in at the beginning it
toughens the corn. Break an ear
in half and cook one-half of it as
directed at the beginning of this article. Cook the other half in salted
water for half air hour. Then try
both and note the difference in favor

Wonderful Oil Sands
Declares Oil Sands of the North
Among the World's Wonders.
Col. Stewart, of San Antonio, Texas,
returned on the Waterways train from
a three weeks' visit to McMurray and
the oil land country along the Athabasca extending for-50 miles northward from McMurray. Col. Stewart
is an oil man of long experience, and
is very deeply impressed with the
showing of oil land. He knows of
nothing to compare with it for extent
or oil content in the. world.
He visited the Alcan well, situated
three and"one-half, miles east of the
river arid on ground 500 feet above
the water. Thc_rig was an excellent one, with a most competent man
in charge. At the^time of Colonel
Stewart's visit they were down 175
feet, and going fast, with good indications. Thcy wcre'in new ground, but
hoped to bring in the oil somc time

Starving Russians   '       -
\ Are Photographed
American Ship's Officers Take Movie
7     .    at Petrograd Dock.
The Daily Tcilcgraph tells how the
skipper of an American steamer with
a cargo of flour for Pctrograd obtained a film of everyday scenes in Pctrograd by concealing a cinematographic
camera ori the captain's bridge and
taking photographs through loopholes
in the protecting canvas.
Some of these photographs, it is
stated will., produce a sensation, especially those showing several hundred famished people, who discharged
the vessel's cargo. Under compulsion of Bolshevist overseers tliey
worked from early morning till late at
night/ and then were locked up under
guard until the next morning.-They
were fed^ principally on a disgusting
liquid called soup, each portion being
accompanied by a small piece of
The well-fed American sailors took
compassion off the men and threw
bread, sugar, and other food to them.
This led to fierce scrambles, the poor
starving wretches falling over'one another in the struggle for a piece "of
bread or sugar.
The Bolsheviki heard* about the
film and sent .agents abroad to claim
it, but the American captain declared
that his ship was under the'protection
of "the Stars and Stripes; and-'threatened to shoot any Bolshevist who tried
to issue orders on board. So the
film was saved. The Bolslieviki even
offered in the end! to buy.it, biit.the
offer was not accepted.
The Polka Dot
.Editor Finds Out Where Pattern Got
Its Name.
Although Lord ��Northcliffc, of the
London Times, with a' reputation for
more knowledge than the average encyclopedia, was stumped of the meaning of "polka-dot," as applied to the
cravat he was wearing ere he left
Toronto for the west, the editor of
thc Drygoods Economist has unearthed the solution to the problem.
Three quarters of a century ago a
Bohemian peasant - dance called the
polka, swept thc old world and the
new, creating as much of a sensation
as the one-step and the fox-trot of
todays Everyone talked of thc polka.
Just then some- enterprising manufacturer got out a new style of dark
silk fabric'with contrasting spots or
dots upon it. The rest was simple.
The new fabrics, worn by the fashionables dancing the ^polka, became
"polka' dots," just as later we had
merry widow hats and Alice blue
costumes, and so. on. There were
polka shoes, polka gowns and all
sorts of polka things.

name is- connected with the old Spanish name of labor. The Labrador'
coast was discovered.in the tenth

Guarding Against
X-Ray Dangers
Dangers   Can   Be   Avoided   By   the
��� Adoption of Efficient Protection.
The widespread alarm caused by re-
ccnt^lccounts of the new and unsuspected dangers of X-Rays will be
mitigatcd"~by the report issued by the
X-Ray and Radium Protection Committee formed by doctois, and other
men of science in Great' Britain.
These, dangers concerned the deep
scaled tissues of thc body which were
found to be affected by ."hard" X-Rays
���that is to say X-Rays with a strong
power" of penetration. - The committee finds that the dangers -can" be
avoided -by the adoption of efficient
protection and,suitable^working conditions. Onl^ those who are constantly exposed to the rays are in any
danger and therefore patients who are
tindergoing treatment need 'not' be
alarmed. - Very ' promising results
have beep obtained recently in a London hospital from the treatment of
cancer by means o'f hard X-Rays.
The problem is to select the degree
of hardness which will kill the malignant growth without affecting healthy
tissues, i Although it cannot be said
that a cure for cancer has been dis-

I. The Controversy in the Church at
Antioch (vv. 1-5).
This difficulty was a most serious
one, for it threatened the disruption
of the church into Jewish and Gentile
The question was, "Shall Gentile
converts be required to keep the
Mosaic law as' a condition of salvation?" This issue was brought on by
the coming of certain men from Jerusalem who declared, "Except ye be
circumcised after the manner of
Moseys, ye cannot be saved" (v. 1).
Thc question was so, difficult that Paul
and Barnabas were unable to put
them to silencer These Jewish legalists had the letter of the Scriptures on
their side; thcy could point to the
commandments where this was enjoined upon believers (Gen. 17:14).
Paul could-not-point to any Scripture
where it had been abrogated.' If Paul
could plead that Abraham was justified before hc was circumcised, his
antagonist could say, "Yes, but after
justification thc rite was divinely imposed^" Thc b'rethren at Antioch
decided to refer the matter to the
mother church at Jerusalem. Accordingly Paul and Barnabas and
others, wcrc sent as_a deputation to
II. Thc Deliberations of the Council
(vv. 6-21).
1. Pclci's speech (vv. 7-11). He
argued that God had borne witness to
His acceptance of the Gentiles by giving the Holy Spirit to them the same
as unto thc Jews.___ Since, therefore,
God had not put a difference it would
bc folly for them-to do so. God's
action in sending Peter unto them was
thc unanswerable proof that there was
no distinction lo be made.
2. Paul and Barnabas rehearse their
"experience (v. 12).      They told how
that God had set His seal of approval
upon thcir preaching of salvation by
grace through faith apart from works,
by thc working of signs and wonders
through them. ,
3. Thc argument of James (vv. 14-
21). He took the fact declared by
Peter and showed how it harmonized
with thc prophecy of Amos. He
showed lhat thc reception of the Gentiles was not in conflict with God's
plan, but in strict harmony therewith. God's plan 'for the ages is as
follows: (1) Taking out from amopg
the Gentiles a people for His" name
(v. 14). This is what is now going
on���the calling out of the church. (2)
After thc church is completed and removed the Israclitish nation will be
converted and restored to thcir land
and privileges by the Lord Himself
at His return (vv. 16, 17). (3) Following this will be thc conversion" of
the-world through'(hc agency of converted Isiael (v. 17; cf. Rom. 11:15).
His judgment was that* the Gentiles
should not bc troubled with things
that arc Jewish, but should be warned
against the perils of heathenism, such
as meat offered to idols, fornication
and blood.
III. Thc Decision (vv. 22-29).
Thc   mother   church at Jerusalem
came to a unanimous agreement and
accepted the resolution offered by
James. Thcy not only sent a letter
stating the decision of the conference,
but took the wise precaution to send
influential men along with Paul and
Barnabas to bear the same testimony
by word of mouth. This letter denied the authority of the Judaizing
teachers. (,_ 24),_ and-declared-the
method by which this decision had
bc.n reached (vv. 25-27).
IV. The Second Missionary Journey
Begun (15:36; 16-5).
1. Contention over John Mark (w.
36-41). Paul was suspicious of Mark
because of his desertion on thc former journey. Barnabas took Mark and
sailed to Cyprus. - Paul chose Silas
and went through Syria and Silesia
confirming the churches. The Lord
thus overruled it to good, for it gave
an opportunity for wider dissemination of $e "gospel.
2. Finding Timothy 16:1-5). ' This
was at the very place where Paul on
his first journey had endured cruel
stoning." Timothy was with Paul
through much of his work'ever afterward, a great blessing to him.

for relieving distress in this country
is vast, expensive and complicated,
the outcome of generations of concentrated thought, acres of statistics,
tons ofBlue Books. Yet in defiance
���so it seems���of all this, a certain
human pride prefers starvation. Our
polished machinery lacks just that
note of human sympathy in its administration for which our weak nature
craves, and until it requires that note
respectability and pride will continue
to starve by choice. It is probably
wicked and wrong, but it is human.���

At the present time, as people in
this district are aware, many
motorists bound for the"- Pacific
coast, take a route through - the
State of Washington. As a result
the interior of British Columbia
sutlers from the loss of this travel.
It is to stimulate interest in the
completion of those roads which
will permit through travel that
Messrs. Palmer and Rigby are
making their tour. They report a
very   mponsive   interest   in   the
to Mayor Gale of Vancouver
movement at every point they have
visited. -
The message bearers left Calgary
on July 11, driving north to Edmonton then east via Saskatoon to
Winnipeg. From that city, they
drove* weat through the southern
sections of the^ Prairie Provinces,
stopping- at Brandon, Regina-
Moose Jaw, Medicine Hat and
Lethbridge. The message they
are carrying has received the support of automobile clubs all along
their route, and in addition it has
been endorsed by the chief executives in all of the principal cities"
in the Prairie Provinces.
It is almost as difficult for some
women to get their hats on in the
evening .as it is for the men to get
theirs on in the mornsng.    ._

"Pussyfoot", Johnson,-the great
temperance leader, said at a dinner
in Washington: "We have got to
have prohibition for the drunkard's own benefit. Nothing but
prohibition will cure drunkeness.
Tell a drunkard that- alcohol will
ruin him morally, financially, physically, and. every other way, and
he'll answer-you very much as the
girl "answered her'' young man.
This young man a student of medicine, drew back one evening from
a long embrace, and said thoughtfully: .'It's quite true,,you know,
that there.are microbes in kisses.'
'Oh, the:- sweet little . darlings!'
cried the girl ecstatically, and she
threw herself again into his arms."
