As everyone knows theHospital
was inaugurated to meet the needs .
of Greenwood and District,Mhat
such an institution was a necces-
sity has been fully demonstrated
by the number that  are continually entering and leaving, in fact
far mbre than there is accomodation   for.      The    Hospital   was
equipped for five beds, this number hasf proved quite inadequate
for  the number seeking   admittance.    At present  there are ten
resident patients as well" as out- ;
patients,    this    is    double   the
amount provided  for;;   and it is
plainly    seen, that    double   the    -"
amount of equipment is needed to
meet   this   unexpected   increase.
Beds and furnishings,   linen and
all the necessary &cs., increase of
salaries for additional  help,   and
extra supplies.    The Matron and s .
her attendants have been  put to   N
much    incdnvenietice . as    their
rooms have had to be used for the   .
extra  demand.     Some of   these
expenses are for the upkeep only.
These can be met by the receipts
from patients, subscriptions from     ���
the  public;"aud���-4in��-:pDr -capita"
grants from the Government but
the extra expense for equipment
has to come from some   source,
and if this expense could be met,
the Hospital   might be able .to
meet running expenses.
The...indebtedness   for   equipment, to date is-about $650.00, the    ���.-
completed purchase, of the Hospital   building will   be $450.00,     v
and should, the Board of Directors   7
decide to   enlarge  the   Hospital.
another $1000.00 will be required. ���'-

A Winning Figkt
In promoting health jiml combatting disease Iho great, majority of people
will readily admit tho old adage holds Iruo and lhat an ounce of proven.ion
i.s worih a pound of curfc. The trouble is dial, whilo Government, municipall-
1i>��.s and peoplo in general Ixliovo this, thoy do not always act. upon thoir belie?
and live up to it. if ihey did there* would be. far loss sickness nnd di.soa.se,
tower deaths and enormously loss physical suffering, all of which would result
directly in great financial gain to tho Slate and to the individual citizen, and
largely iueronse tho productive power and prosperity of the. world.
Again, while people generally agree that prevention is hotter and cheaper
than cure, whether it be in the matter of health, or fire, or war, the Vast
majority remain rather hazy- on the subject, with the result that tliey are
eriileh'l of expenditures .necessary to the taking of preventive measures, but
at the same time are quite prodigal in spending money to cope with a crisis
when one i.s precipitated but which could have boon prevented by foresight
and a much smaller expenditure.
Lot an alarming epidemic of disease break out aud begin sweeping
through a oouimunily and iho people will stop at uo outlay of money to check
it, although thoy may have year after year refused tn vote a comparatively
small sum which would have removed the menace which finally caused the
epidemic. There v/as hardly any criticism in Canada over the piling up of a
war debt of iwo billions of..dollars, but there is now criticism ot* an annual
expenditure -of a couple hundreds of thousands iis Canada's contribution towards tho cost of tho administration of the League of Nations in its endeavor
to prevent future wars by removing cause for them.
It is necessary, therefore, to bring to the attention of all people as frequently as possible the decided benefits to themselves resulting from the taking of proper measures of prevention as individuals ancl as represented by
���Governments, Federal, Provincial and Municipal. It is in the. interest of all.
���that attention is drawn in this article to some remarkable advances made in
recent years in tho scientific prevention of disease.
Take .smallpox as an example," Wrhcre was a time within Hie memory of
.many people when this disease was quite common and the death toll very
high. In the city of Montreal in 1SS5 smallpox- was the cause of 3,1GI deaths
that year, but tho costly lesson of-tha I. epidemic resulted in general vaccination throughout .Quebec w'lth the result, that there has been no repetition of
the epidemic. On the other hand, vaccination was largely neglected in the
Windsor district of Ontario with the result that last year an epidemic in viru-
'���< nt form developed, and of rhose who contracted the disease and hsid not been
vaccinated 71. per cent. died. . On the other hand not one .single, (tenth occurred: in'the case of ii pei'son wlio" had. -ever" been vaccinated... The epidemic
was quickly controlled by.the ."vaccination of practically the. whole community,
i>0,000-people submitting to vaccination in two weoky. . ���'.Vaccina lion i.s .prevent ion of.- smallpox, yoi .iri thef face of established facts many people neglect'

Our Northern Wards
Heavy Cost of Preserving Law
Order Among the Eskimos
Quito evidently the Eskimo inhabitants of the northern coastlauds of
Canada need a good deal more regulative attention thau the mounted police can givo them unlsss the strength
of that force i.s very considerably increased. They would get it, too, if
there was any way of making Jliem

class whose poverty and remoteness
give them exemption from taxation.

Lack Of National Sentiment
Mrs.  Snowden  Speaks About "Secession Talk In Canada    -
The-lack of sufliciently strong Canadian-national sentiment,-resulting in
the east smiting, the west, and vice
versa, and the failure of the Canadian
Parliament to examine the problems
of each from a national viewpoint, said
Mrs. Philip Snowden, speaking lo a
London correspondent, was mainly responsible for any. "secession talk,"
which, shc .stated, was mostly negative. She had never met anyone who
would admit to being in favor of se-
cessionr but many had broached tbe
subject, to her, anxious to convince her
thai no such sentiment existed, only
an anger with the government for not
attending more closely to the ditlicul-
dering missionaries and  traders who  ties of the various   sections   of   the
wander into their domain.���Kdnionloti

Rejection of League Protocol
Wall   Street ^Journal   Says   Empire's
Sta'"d is Next Thing to With--
i       .dra'wal  From  League
The Waif.. Street Journal declares
editorially that the British Empire's
rejection of the protocol of the -League
of Nations 'Zis the next thing' to withJ
drawn I from "the league itself,"
The empire's action indicates that
tho'English-speaking races have no
intention of effecting any dangerous
alliances, and continues: _
. "Tlie bonds which united the British
commonwealths to Groat Britain are
supposedly tenuous, but the.y held like
bands of steel during lhe Groat War.
Thoy havo disposed of the protocol
with a promptness, calculated to make
its*authors gasp. There Is no international league wliich compels the adhesion of Great. Britain to the- Monroe doctrine. ..Nevertheless, there is

Speaking of her large audiences in
Canada, Mrs. Snowden said she found
them appreciative, and their interest,
in the subjects on which she spoke,

across the continent iu less than a

��� Canada's Fishing- Wealth
Can Be Greatly Increased By Application of Scientific Methods
Canada's fishing wealth can be multiplied ten times by the application
of scientific methods throughout the
industry. This is the assurance given by Dr. A..G. Huntsman, director of
tho Atlantic biological stations.
The_great extension.of facilities for
scientific investigation projected at
the Atlantic and Pacific coasts on the
inland waters of the Dominion Was
outlined by Dr. Huntsman. The new
biological station at Halifax whicli had
been erected for the purpose of studying and improving the methodsjof canning, freezing, smoking, salting and
drying fish and other researches
.directly relating to the fishing industry will be completed next month, find
will.bear the same'relation to the fishing industry as the agricultural research colleges do to agriculture
Another new station will be begun
this summer at Prince Rupert, B.C.
The appropriation for the two is $70,-
000. - The other westsrn station is at
Nanaimo. Stations operated on the.

Interim Wheat Pool Payment Should
Stimulate Spring Trade
The release of $30,000,000 among 02,-
000 Western Canada farmers cannot
fail to havc a stimulating effect upon
all lines of business. This interim
payment from the wheat pools represents a net addition io prairie buying
power, since it has not been hypothecated In advance. The date of its
payment and the amount per/ bushel
were unknown up to the time the payment was made, and it-has therefore
not been spent or pledged in advance,
as was the case with a great part of
the money received as initial payment.
Thirty-five cents a bushel.-repre-
senilng a clear cash profit after costs
of production -and freight have been
paid, is a very considerable sum of
money, even to the man who has farmed on a sniall scale, and it will enable
him to buy many necessaries whoso
purchase has been positioned. Tlie
phenomenon which has been somewhat mistakenly called a "buyers'
strike" should now give placo to a
lively season of spring buying.���Winnipeg Tribune. ,

No Dispute Between Canada and U.S.
Regarding Territory
The treaties between Canada and
the United States reported to tho
United States senate recently, are"
those signed on February 21, Jri Washington, by Hon. Ernest Lapointe and
Secretary of State Hughes.
The one dealing with tho demarka-
lion of tho boundaries realigns in Pas-
samaquoddy Bay, N.B., ��� and also provides for a "more practical definition
of lhc boundary line" which" runs
through the Lake of the Woods to a
point described as the northwest point
of that lake.
It also provides for lho relocation
and repair of lost monuments which
mark the boundary lino between
"Western Canada and tho United
States. It provides that the western
boundary shall consist of a series of
right or straight lines adjoining ad-
jacent^nonuments as now established
or re-established.
���No territory is actually In dispute,
the Lake of tho Woods adjustment bo-
ing chiefly designed to give more practical definition of-* the* two small areas
of United States waters in tho Lake
.of the Woods, wliich under the present
demarkation is entirely surrounded by
Canadian waters..
The New Brunswick adjustment concerns "a small zone of waters of controvertible jurisdiction in' Grand Man-
an Channel."
Thc trealy also provides for inspection from time to time of the boundary
line between Canada and the United
States, for the repair of damaged monuments "and buoys, the keeping open of
'boundary vistas and in general the
maintenance of an effective boundary
Record Of British Flier
Made Trip of 17,000 Miles With No
Seventeen thousand miles from
Londonto India and back, including a
flight round Mount Everest, with a
single breakdown aud without change
of engine, is the record flight which""
Alan Cobharn, a British airman, has
just made in taking Air Service Marshal Sir Seiton Brancker on a survev
of the imperial air routes through Bagdad, Calcutta and Rangoon. Cobbam't.
total flying distance i'or himself now
exceeds two hundred thousand miles.
The. trip was more remarkable than
tho famous world flight of the Aineri-,
can airmen, because Cobham had no
assistance lrom 'elaborate dumps at
convenient stations antl ho carried all
lhe spares necessary in case of mishap to his machine.
Sir Sertoli Brauclccr carried with
him in the machine baggage for a
three months' trip, including clothes
for diplomatic Junctions. As a--result of the trip, it is now considered
that it'would be possible io fly to India in four-days nest.year, while the
air marshal will now be able to elaborate The whole scheme of imperial
airways throughout (he empire to India, Australia, Egypt.and Canada.

Germany's Drink ^Bill
Has   Doubtful    Distinction'   of   Being
Wettest Country  in the' World
Prohibition would pay tho German
war debt and have millions of gold
marks to subsidize a grape juice iudus-
liT, according to Germany's national
committee for prohibition.
Germany is the*,wettest country in
the world.     The committee announced   this,   following   a   survey   which
disclosed that Germans    drank   just-
a sip or two less than two quarts of
alcoholic beverago for    every    quart
consumed   in   France.     Tho   annual
German   consumption   is   500,000,000
quarts,  of, whicli 132,000,000    quarts
aro of hard liquors-���brandy, liqueurs
and the like.     Trance consumes 300.-
000,000 quarts .of intoxicating bever-j
ages annually, if the   red   wine,   as'
served    in    every French home antl j
estaniinot, can bo called intoxicating.
More than 20,000,000 gold marks, or
approximately $500,000,000, is the bill
for hard liquor that Germany digs
deep to pay each year. For his wine,
beer and liqueurs each German is said
by the committee to spend forty gold
marks, or ?10 annually. That is the
per capita bill, with each man, woman
and child charged with his average
"Since ihc burden imposed on Ger-'
many by thc Dawes plan amounts to
forty marks per capita," tho committee sets forth, "Germnny may easily
win their freedom by cutting out
booze." *"

cominitlee sarcastically asserts, and

Loyalty to Christ- tho King": Lea-
eon I.���On tho last". Sunday of his
earthly life, Jesus'Christ, as the prophet Zechariah had foretold, mado
his triumphal entry into Jerusalem,
meek and riding upon an ass. .Tho
whole city was moved. The peoplo
acclaimed Him King, though they did
not really recognize .what" lhat kingship laeant. 'The Rornaus expected
--���onio public rising; the Pharisaical
party was aroused to now envy and
malice;" tho Herodlans dreaded a possible* ururpor; but tho populace entertained for tho moment the idea that
their hope was now fulfilled, lhat tlie
long-dreamed of Messiah had at last
appeared, and would lead them fo victory." But after looking round about
tho temple, Jesus passed quietly out
of Jerusalem and returned to Bethany for tho night. He did no wonderful work. He had no revolt
against the hated Roman rulers. Tho
enthuaia��m of .the country people and
the curiosity of the City folk soon
waned. Before the week was over
the cry of "Blessed is tho King!" was
changed to "Crucify Him!"
Unchanging'loyalty fo Christ is tlio
mark of all his true followers. Loyalty to thc right is grounded on this
personal loyalty lo liini who is wholly
righteous. '���Christ was for a long
lime my King," said an earnest follower of His, "but 1 fear Tie was only
a constitutional sovereign and I was
His prime minister. Now He is absolute Lord, and this -has made a

Up 17 Per Cent, in 1924
When the annual report pf the
Minister of Mines appears next
month it will show that the value
of 1924 production approximates
$4:8,621,097, an increase over 1923
of ��7,316,777, or 17.6, per cent.
This means that in two years there
has been an advance of over 35 per
cent. This progress has been based
on development of natural resourcea
and a normal growing demand for
the mineral products of the
Hon. William Sloan, minister bf
mines, has endeavored to see
British Columbia's mining industry
top the fifty million mark in value.
It was not one and a half millions
from it last year, and he is confident that the results of the. year
1925 will be substantially, iu excess
of the 12 .months recently closed.
Metalliferous mining, as already
has been indicated by published
statistics, is responsible for last
year's good showing. The revised
statement indicates that the increase of metal mine production
over 1923 totalled $9,890,064.

Weekend Habit
Every   weekend     use   the_f longdistance' telephone ,to   chat   with   a   fs
distant v-friend or   relative.    This   is
not  an  expensive habit,   for'the new
night rates   are   specially   low,   and
both you and the parties whom  you    ^
call will enjoy a talk-trip of this sort'...
It   is   an  excellent way  to maintain *

letter-writing. ���     -    _ *
