purposes, would capture the

our women will still be lovely in

not quite so free as they were last

worth while.

Combination Mine
Much optimism has been displayed in town since high-grade
ore was encountered in the tunnel
ofthe Combination mine of.the
Eholt Mining Co. last week, about
230 feet from the portal." On Tuesday a drift was started to the left
and after a round was blasted
the lead measured about two feet
wide, showing an improvement, on
Wednesday morning. Grey copper and native silver can easily be
detected in the ore, assays of which
have not been received. Since the
locating of the ore about three tons
has been sorted and when a carload is secured it will be shipped to
Trail smelter.
. A number of.well-known miners
who have examined the ore are of
the opinion that it is asj good a
grade of ore as taken from the
Providence mine.
It is the intention of the management, in the near future, to
put two drills to work so that
drifts can be run both ways on -the
lead. The lead still shows in the
face of the tunnel but no work will
be done on it for the present.
The Combination is one of the
oldest mines in the district having
been discovered and worked in
April, 1892, by the late F. A.
Bartholomew and C. E. Bartholomew, now president of the Eholt
Mining Co., the majority of stockholders being Spokane residents.
It is Mr. Bartholomew's faith in
camp and with the able assistance
of C. R. Garris, the secretary-
treasurer, who is at present in
-charge at the mine, that this property has been so successfully developed.
This rich strike]means much for
Greenwood and district. It will
encourage other ^properties to open
up, capital will be easier to secure
and Greenwood wi|l once, more be

Mining" Notes
A trial shipment of three tons of
ore will be made from the Crescent
on the Phoenix hill to the Trail
smelter. This property is being
developed by Wm. and Ed.
Thompson, of Midway, who have
some good ore in eight.
It is reported that a rich strike
of ore has been made at the Sally
mine at Beaverdell.

Captain Swayne was' born ib
Chatham, New Brunswick, 72
years ago, and went to sea at an
early age. , In his young manhood

While there he had the privilege of
hearing Charles Dickens daring hie
American tour, and often used so
speak of going for 24 nights in
succession to hear the great novelist read from his own works. Tiring of the confinement of office
work, he went back to the sea
which he followed for a number of
years, visiting practically every
part of the world.
He was married in 18.84 to Miss
Laura E. Wells of Dorchester,
N. B., who survives him, and they
have one son, William G. Swayne,

The Latest Death-Dealing' Device Is
Described .
Designs of new machines to win. the
next World War follow one another
so rapidly that governments are hard
put to keep up with the revelations of
the inventors of death-dealing terrors.
"The most fearful air weapon yet devised is being made secretly," according to the Aeronautical correspondent of the Daily Chronicle, "to
ram the transport planes carrying enemy troops."
This   new    terror   will be heavily
armored and will be launched from a
dirigible    resting   at a great height.
Without guns or any weapon save a
knife-like    cutting    bow, the pilot of
the "ram" will plunge down on the
huge troop-carrying plane of the enemy.     Just before reaching his objective, by operating interior mechanism he will draw ��in   his   telescopic
wings.     Then with his ow-n plane as
projectile he will dive at the vulnerable wings or control surfaces of the
enemy aircraft.      Through  these  he
will  cut and ride his way, and  the
groat battleship of the air will reel
earthward to' destruction.   7"  .. \ , 7 '

Titles Of the Prince
Will Pay An Unofficial Visit to Canada
This Fall As the Duke of
The Prince of Wales is to pay an
unofficial visit to Canada as the Duke
of Cornwall. Queen Victoria used to
travel as the Duchess of Lancaster,
and King George visited the north of
England as the Duke of Lancaster.
As a duke is only entitled to be called "Your Grace," or addressed as "My
LordU.Duke," it is to be presumed that,
"Your Royal Highness" is not mentioned during these tours of royalty
The Duchy of Cornwall is unique
among dukedoms, in that all other
dukes inherit their title through the
death of its holder, while the Duke of
Cornwall inherits upon his fatherTe-
coming King. Another Edward than
the present one���namely, Edward the
Black Prince���was ��� the first to bear
the title, which was instituted in 1337
for "the oldest born sons of the Kings
of England." If the holder of this
title dies before becoming a King, his
son does not succeed to the dukedom
���for he Is not the eldestVsori of a
King. On that account- the title has
suffered several temporary disappearances'. .' "" ��� .-' ���[,.-.:, -..-:.'.,.-   V '������   ���' X '���''""'

Exact Figures For Year 1922 Given By
To those who are not in close touch
with the gold production of Canada as
well as to those who are somewhat
conversant with the figures, the report given out by the Dominion Department of Statistics will be-of much
interest. These figures are for the
calendar year 1922, and. while estimates have been given out before,
exact statements have not hitherto
been available with reference to all
There has been considerable discus1
sion in the past few years with refer-
once to possible gold production in
the province of Manitoba. The actual
gold production, has, however, been
very limited, the total outmit in the
year 1922 being in value $3,225 for
156 ounces of the "precious metal.
Manitoba people, however, have the
knowledge that there is some gold in
the Rice Lake area, and where there'
has been proven to be-some, there
majs be a valuable strike some day.
An item in the figures which will
surprise many readers is the lower production in the Yukon and its relation to the production in British Columbia. The figures show that British
Columbia yielded nearly four limes as
much gold as the Yukon, the fig-,
ures being 51,456 ounces for the Yukon
and 207,370 ounces for British Columbia.
Ontario is, of course, the great
source of the precious metal in Can,
ada, having, the most famous and
greatest gold mine in the world, the
Hollinger. - Others in the same district in Northern Ontario are only less
famous. - -
The value of gold in all Canada in
the year 3922 was $26,116,050, and the
amount was 1,263,364 ounces. The
distribution in the provinces was as

In addition to ihe gold ^figures the
statisticians give out the yield of Cobalt for "the year, of which the major
part of the world's supply comes from

for the year was 569,960 pounds. The

oysters, yeast and mushrooms.
" Successful tests with the new substance have been made upon dogs and

tests have yet been made on human
beings' but Dr. Collip was quoted' as
having said:- ' '   - 7 ,

An Egyptian
Interesting Lights Thrown On Ancient
Life of Egyptians Thrown Recent
The widespread publicity which attended the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamen has produced one very "excellent result. It has led to the raising of funds sufficient to permit of an
early resumption of the work of excavating the site of Tel-el-Amarna.
This work promises far more interesting results than any so far yielded up
at Luxor.
AArhatever may be thought of the
artistic value ot the discoveries in the
tomb of Tutankhamen, there can be
no doubt that the accumulation of
such a vast hoard of property in a
temple of the-dead made rather unpleasant appeal to tlie materialistic
side of our nature.
Investigators at Tel-el-Amarna wiil
not be diggingz-among the houses of
the dead, but will seek for knowledge
among dwellings that once were occupied by the living. They will be in
touch with life4tself as it was actually led by the ancients over 3,000 years
ago. More than this, they may be
able lo throw- valuable light upon ihe
early origins of religious belief.
For Akhenaten, the father-in-law of
Tutankhamen, founded the city of Tel-
el-Amarna ia order to establish there
his new faith, the essence of which
was .belief in a single deity as opposed to tlie old religion, which involved
the worship of a multiplicity of gods.'
By manyVhis is believed to have been
the very first monotheistic movement
in the history of all mankind, and to
have paved the way for the Jewish

It is clear that a religious change
of so striking 'and revolutionary a
character must have been accompany
ied by other no less original tenden-'
cies. And so it-was. Tel-el-Amarna
was a centre to which all advanced
thinkers and artists flocked. WHere
the pursuit of truth was a passion
amounting almost to Nihilism.
To avoid .flattery, the art of the period resorted to grotesque caricature
and ugliness was frequently, preferred
to beauty. But it is of interest to
observe that different ideas prevailed
when it came to applying art to life
itself.- Near Tel-el-Ainarna, fox- example, there has been excavated a
workman's settlement, said to be a
really perfect example of town planning, and many of ihe houses and
temples which have been, dug out are
revelations of unexampled beauty.
Already, as a result of excavation,'
Tel-el-Amarna has developed into an
Egyptian Pompeii. But it is really-
more precious than Tompeli, for liere
was made probably the earliest attempt in ihe history of mankind to establish' Utopian conditions founded
upon peace and truth. Three thousand years have passed since then, and
Tel-el-Amarna slill remains a dream)���

They tell of the ruins of an ancient
metropolis, once teeming with all the
culture, arts and industries of a long-
forgotten race, uow half submerged in
the ocean. Rising-out of the sea'are
the tops of gigantic and strange buildings. Coral has attached itself to
the ruins, forming a picturesque atoll
with a placid lagoon.
The structures are said to be Egyptian in design and pyramids have been
discovered in the limpid water below
the strange atoll, basking in the tropical sunlight and washed by a shimmering sea.
Mr. Ford sailed from San Francisco

To Study the Sun
Chain-of Stations Around the World
���-.'��� to Keep Orb Under Continual
With reference to the recent announcement that the Australian Government; has decided to establish a
solai\observatory in that country, Dr.
William J. S. Lockyer, Director of ihe
Norman Lockyer Observatory,-at Sid-
mbuth, South Devon, England, writes:
Eveiyone knows that it is due to
the dominating heat and light of ihe
sun that life on this earth is possible,
and many of us are also acquainted
with the facts that the weather and
also ihe number"of magnetic storms,
aurorae, and earthquakes vary from
one year to another.
-Tlie past study bf the sun has shown'
us thai he is in a conlinual state of
turmoil. On his surface spots and
other markings are seen to wax and
wane, being more numerous in some
years than in others.
On his ."limb," or edge, storms or
prominences.^violent outbursts of up-
rushing gases, behave very simijarly.
Observations during total eclipses
have demonstrated that the upper
reaches of the solar atmosphere, as
exhibited?' by the "corona," undergo
great variations In ship and extent.
These and. other, facts shows that
the sun undergoes ranges in light and
heat from one year-to another, and it
has been ascertained that all these
phenomena complete their cycle In
about eleven years. There are indications of shorter' and longer cycles of
disturbance, but these up to the present are not so well determined.
The'- continuous and detailed study
of solar changes is therefore of supreme importance, if wfe are io���and
we must���increase, our knowledge
about the sun.
If the study of the sun "was limit-'
ed to tbe work of one observatory the
records would be��� very- sparse,- because no observations can be made at
night time or on cloudy days,   ,
,An effort was therefore.made io
place solar observatories first in local-
Ites where the raw material, sunshine,
was profuse, such as IndJa, and, secondly, to distribute ihe jPbservatorles
in longitude���i.e., east and west--���so
that when one observatory... is experiencing night the other is in dasiight.
Thus it was desired to institute a
chain of staiions round the world so
that at every moment of.time ihe sun
could be under observation.
At present observatories for making
this study are located-in Central Europe, England, America and India, tak
Ing the countries in order from east to
west. It will be seen, therefore, that
there is a grea<f.gap in longitude between. America, and India, and It is
this gap which, for a long time, it has
been wanted to fill.

Crife, of Cleveland    o

Ohio, aroused great interest at the
final session of the surgical congress
at London, Ont., when he advanced
the theory that man is just a sort of a

described the brain as the positive
pole in the human eleqtrlc machine
and the liveiv, as the negative pole,
with the nerves as the connecting
"The "function of the liver is of
foremost importance in. this hypothesis," said Dr. Crile, "and the 'cf-"
fects of that organ on the brain,
whetheR in sickness or health, is immediately apparent. - This" theory
explains the interference with digestion occasioned by strong emotion, in-
Kry or pain, etc. ^ -If, explains the ef-

Ireland on June 15
The decision w.is looked forward to
with great inteiost and its announcement caused much excitement as it
governs the position of thousands ot
prisoners held by the Government under the plea of military necessity.
Despite this decision, it is regarded as
Unlikely that tliere will be any general

Into Standing Tiain
Berlin.���A great disaster occurred

tion of the Hanover and Cassel line,
caused by a collision between the
Hamburg-Munich express and a train
standing in fhe station. Up to four
o'clock -H bodies had been recovered
from the wreckage, and the estimated
number of killed is 3 00, while I.4 injured are being eared lor in the hospital at Goettingen.
Identification of the killed is extremely diflicult-and in some cases
impossible, owing to their mangled
condition.. The collision is attributed
to the inability cf the driver of the
express tosee Ihe signals because of
grit which had been blown into his
London.���Prime Minister Baldwin
joined with Lord Curzon, the Foreign
Secretary, in ��� informing Parliament
that the icplies by France and Belgium to the British reparations note
seemed to hold out no prospect' of a-
settlement of the Ruhr situation iu
the near future nor Die opening of a
discussion legarding reparations.
Great Britain had submitted to the
other allies the draft of a joint allied
teply to the last German reparation
communication and Great Britain had
attached very great importance to the
dispatch ol such a reply tlie Premier
declared Neither France nor Belgium, however, had mentioned this
leply in their anfvver lo the1 British
communication and Great Britain to
the regiet of her Government, was unable to find in these responses sufficient material for the disfiatch of a
joint  allied reply to Germany.
Realizing llie danger of the European situation sinking into irretrievable ruin during prolonged negotiations among the allies, the British
Government, holding that the problem cannot be evaded, the statement
said, has invited the allies to agree
lo the publication of their communications in the hope that these documents together with those prepared
by Great Britain may convince the
world of the necessity of prompt
and united action.

Race One Feature
Of "The Fast Mail"
ere an
Over a thousand million fish cg'^s
of various species were collected by
the hatcheries branch of the Department of Marine and Fisheries
during 1921.
Inbound ships from the United
Kingdom are averaging 4,500 tons
of freight foi- dischar'��� at Vancouver. Outbound they take aboul
4,000 tons per vessel. Last year
the average outward tonnage was
practically the same while the inbound was only about one tenth of
what it now is!
The story is laid in the South
and the action opens with the
Dixieland Steeplechase. Of course;
there is a hero and hiB fair lady
love, and the villain scorned. And
this immediately leads us to the
crooked work afoot at the race.
They're oil! Horses plunge and
riders fall. But ever the hero
races, still pursued by the dark-
uued villain. Neck and neck they
race, and then at the turn.
As a further complication a murder is committed. The villain
escapee, taking with him the hero's
love, for. he is no other than the
rejected suitor. And now, in hot
pursuit comeB the fast horses, the
speeding automobiles, the churning
river boats and last of all "The
Fast Mail." Through all this
storm and strife our hero wins
through to success and in the nick
of time saves the fair heroine, not
only from the base villain, but from
the flames of the burning hotel.
"The Fast Mail" will ���be presented at the Greenwood Theatre
on Friday and Saturday, August
10th and 11th. There will also be
shown a,two-reel comedy, entitled
"Laughing Gas." A dance will be
held after the show on Friday.
