Following the custom of pre-war
days the Greenwood- Fire Department held an "annual" in the
Fire Hall on Monday night and for
the firsfe time in the history of the
department ladies were invited.
Over 60 responded to the call of
the firemen and enjoyed' the hospitality of the fire fighters. Progressive whist was played after
which a dainty supper of sandwiches, cake and coffee.was served.
Exhibitions of punching the bag,
horizontal bar and trapeze stunts
and heavy weight lifting were
given and so interesting did this
prove thafe the ladies could not refrain from trying their prowess,
mnch to the amusement of all.
After dancing for awhile all left for

Clean Up!
Around about this lime of the year
it is customary for the housewife to
indulge in her annual spring house-
cleaning. It has become the usual
procedure, too, for the provincial and
municipal fire prevention and health
authorities to declare "Clean-up" days
.or weeks. Thc object is, of course,
to focus public attention upon the importance of organized community as
well as individual effort being devoted to the task of collecting and destroying the r(efuse and rubbish which
always accumulates around the house
and other buildings during the severe
winter months.
It is important that this work bc
attended to for many reason. First,
there is the question of health to be
considered. The accumulation of
dirt, filth and waste material of various kinds develop from such accumulations, but flies, the greatest of all
carriers of disease, find their chief
breeding places in filth and rubbish.
A general spring clean-up is one of
the best health measures that can be
taken  in any home or community.
The removal of the dust and dirt
resulting from the sealing up of houses and offices during- the cold winter
months is also a protective measure
from moths, and insects whose destructive activities arc too well known
to even require mention.
A general spring clean-up is important also from the standpoint of fire
protection.    Many people who .exercise care in regard to the .accumulation of filth and rubbish which'might
.   have, an, adverse; effect on health,-and
-   as-the breeding places of germs" and
' insects .of many kinds, neglect to collect and remove other kinds of rubbish which; while not dangerous from
��� these  standpoints, - arc  the cause  ' of
. fires which, all  too frequently, result
-' in- serious' conflagrations with  consc-
"."" qucnt.  loss- of  valuable property and
even more valuable lives." -.-    .
���'  -' "Clean-up" days- or ��� weeks: have -bc-
-" come  established   institutions  in  the
cities and larger towns, aiid the municipal' authorities co-operate with the
individual' citizen . in   "city-wide .'.and,
��� town-wide, house-cleaning."- .The pub'--
lie "health is' thereby "promoted," a lar-
..ger measure,of. security from-fire is
provided,  and- tlie 'whole: community
'-. . made much neater", and more, attractive, leading inevitably to'greater civic,
pride and to.the carrying out of other

I6.s.s annually is. simp-
of like import, apply to the question of
a general spring clean-up and the removal of rubbish and waste of every
description. Better still, of course, is
never to allow it to accumulate, but
under certain conditions this is not
wholly possible during the winter.
There should, however, in their own
individual and even selfish interests
!be a general response by all people
to the proclamations issued by thc
provincial governments of lhc West
for "Clean-up" week. It i.s not necessary lo wait until that date, but
individual and community houscclcan-
ing should not be deferred beyond it.

Forest Products of B.C.
HEART   80
Had an Increase of $16,000,000 Over
Preceding Ycar
It has been stated officially that the.
agricultural products of British Columbia last year had a value of almost
25 percent over thc value of the products of the prcceeding year. The '
forest products of the year had an increase of $16,000,000 over those of the
preceding year, due, in large part,
however, to the higher price of lumber and timber. In fact, the cut of
logs last year was a little smaller than
that of the preceding year.
The total log scale for thc year was
1,758,329,995 feet, as against 1,761,184-
406 feet the previous year. The slight
decrease was partially due to labor
difficulties in the woods and partly to
the fact that thc output of aeroplane

must write and tell you of the benefit I have received from Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills.
About four years ago I was
taken terribly. bad with .my
heart, nerves and fainting, spells, and
was down in bed for about six
months. I doctored with two different doctors and seemed- to cet better,
although thc fainting spe>ls would
not leave mc. I would take such terrible falls, wherever 1 was, that it
was not safe to leave me at home at
any time. At last I decided to resort to proprietary medicines and
took several different kinds, but-

In (jur last lessor* we saw Israel's
overwhelming defeat and thc capture
of thc ark by the Phillistincs. While
they triumphed over Israel,, they did
not triumph over. Israel's God.
Through the presence of thc ark God
was working among the Ph.illisli.ncs.
1. The ark at Ashdod (5:1-6). It
was placed in the heathen temple
alongside of Dagon, with the expectation that thc ark would be destroyed
showing, that Dagoli was mightier
than God, but Dagon was humiliated
and broken. Besides this the' people
wcrc afflicted with cmerods, or hemorrhoids, showing the hand of lire living God upon thcm in judgment.

mortality. They then carried the ark

3. The ark at. Ekron. (5: 10-12-.' At
Ekron thc destruction was still more
awful. Many were slain and thc rest
were, smitten with cmerods so that

Self-righting Type Driven at Speed of
About Eight'Knots
Thc -work of thc National Lifeboat
Institution of Great Britain^ was held
up to a great extent during thc war,
-but an extensive programme of boatbuilding  has.since been started.    It
'includes a number of motor-propelled
lifeboats, this type having proved its
superiority. On one occasion a motor lifeboat travelled M4 miles in a
terrible stortp and rescued 50 people
from a vessel which four other life-
b'oats of thc old -type had tried in
vain to reach. One of thc latest motor nlifcboals to be put in commission
has many interesting features. It'is
of tlic self-righting type and is driven by a 45 horse power petrol engine
jat a speed of about eight knots. 'When
a lifeboat "capsize^--it is neces;sary to
stop the engine, as otherwise the boat-
will steam off and leave its crew in
the water. This condition is met by
means- of two contacts in an ebonite
box with mercury, so arranged that
when thc boat is sailing normally the
contacts are immersed in the mercury.
When the boat capsizes thc mercury-
is emptied out. into a littic. reservoir
and breaks contact, stopping the engine. Elaborate "jacketing" is resorted io in order to prevent water from
gettiiUg into thc engine. Both magneto and accumulator ignition arc installed, and a hand pump is available
as well as thc force feed system of
lubrication. These and other precautions' are. adopted lo prevent breakdown. ^

Ruggles then told of the fortune
left him by Hamid Pasha and its entailed responsibilities.' Mr. Downing
relighted his cigar and then let it go
out again. Ruggles _ described how,
after certain difficulties, he had managed to fulfill his sacred obligation,
and get the girls safely betrothed to
estimable husbands-elect. Mr. Downing wondered if he were living ih the
twentieth century. All of this narration was marvelousiy condensed, yet
lacking in  no important detail.    The

Limits Here
G. R. Hall Caine, son of Hall Caine
thc novelist, was recently in Ottawa.
In thc course of an interview Mr.
Caine said that he was negotiating
for the purchase of .pulp wood limits
and pulp, thc -company he represents
bcing prepared to spend $40,000,000
in thc enterprise. Mr. Caine, who is
.himself a director of several English
paper mill companies, and a pulp'and
power company, in. Canada, is..representing seven of the largest ^newspaper
publishers in England whose object
in securing pulp wood limits is to insure for tlicir paper a continuous- supply .of "newsprint; - Negotiations" arc
under way for .the purchase, of 1,000
square .miles,��� of limits.' Incidentally
JNIiV Caine expressed-the opinion; that
there would be-a great influx of English capital to" Canada in-the next few
years; The eyes-of English-.business
men were turning toward Canada at
the present moment as never before.'
Is'An   Abreviation    of   the   Words
"Deduced Latitude"
What is the origin of the nautical
term "dead reckoning." Perhaps the
general impression is that the prefix^
"dead" "is so common in technical
terms related to the ship and its rigging that it is merely the mariner's
way of expressing himself. Therc are
"de'ad-cyes," -"dead- lights," "dead-
wood," "dead-door," "dead-flat," and
a,-host of others, and all savor more
of the ozone than of termological necessity. But there is a peculiar interest in thc origin of "dead reckoning" which has always been regarded
as onc of the most puzzling terms to
trace. The old-fashioned mcthod^of
keeping the ship's log, before the admiralty- supplied specially printed*
books, was tb use. small, .loose sheets
bf paper, ruled into, several columns.
Thc latitude column being too narrow, to admit the words "deduced l?.t-
itudc" in full at the head, the words
were abbreviated to "Ded. Lai."
"Ded." easily became corrupted into
"dead," and hence the singular phrase
for.describing thc mariner's "deduced"
position on the high'seas.���Christian

the following excerpts from editorial comment will be read by
British Columbians with particular
The Edmonton Journal: "The
example given by British Columbia
should have a beneficial effect elsewhere."
Canadiano Municipal Journal:
"As a model in efficiency and compilation the report is worth following, not only by other Provinces,
but by the Municipalities."
The Toronto Globe: The Government of British Columbia has
set a good example to other Governments by the full, clear, and
complete manner in which it has
published its public accounts for
the last fiscal year."
The Monetary Times: "The accounts for the year have been prepared so that the cost of each unit
of gervice may be known and compared from year to year. The cost
of each department, and of each
sub-division of the Depbrtment is
shown, including, salaries, maintenance of buildings, and all miscellaneous expenses."
The Financial Post: "The first
annual statement of public accounts
of any Canadian Government���

with revenue and expenditures of
each Department of the Government segregated under one heading, and with corresponding tables
showing actual and estimated
revenue and'expenditures in each
