The local Lodge Knights of
Pythias and Sisters assembled in
the Castle Hall last night to fittingly celebrate the Diamond
Jubilee of the Order of the
Knights of Pythias and to recall
to mind that, on February 19th,
1864, Justus H, Rathbone and a
few of his intimates met in the
city of Washington, D.C., aud
founded this noble fraternity,,
which since that time has grown
in wealth, power, influence and
membership until now there is on
the roster, in good standing, the
names of nine hundred thousand
good true men, whose simple
creed is an abiding faith in the
Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of Man and the Immortality
of the Soul.
An address on friendship which
means union of hands "and hearts
by that golden cord which bound
Damon and Pythias was made
by H. R. Bidder.
G. S. Walters spoke on Charity
which means not only giving of
alms to a brother in need, but
also is that wondrous attribute
which prompts us to think sweet
thoughts, speak kind words and
do generous acts to every human
being.    ,
Benevolence was the subject of
Wm. Walmsley, which is that
state or condition of/ the mind
and heart which not only impels
one .to wish well his fellow-man,
but to go further than that and
hold out a helping hand to the
needy and the friendless whenever
their condition 'is brought to his
notice.  7   : W-7W*   'X)-y)y
[&X:N. f Mowat spoke on: patriotism which is to cherishv liberty
and free institutions; to respect
constituted authority; to uphold
law and orderf to' freverence the
flag; and to.practice the virtues
of good citizenship.

There were thrills galore and
excitement ran high at the local
rink on Friday, Feb. 15th, when
Grand Forks and Greenwood
played , for the Boundary Cup
Championship, Greenwood winning by 3-2.
The game was fast and clean
and well c contested, Greenwood
having the best of the play
throughout and the decision was
never in doubt. Greenwood'
showed a great improvement over
the last two games in that they
played better combination and
seemed to have more confidence.
Every man worked hard and
deserved to win this hard well
fought game. ,
The Grand Forks boys gave a
splendid exhibition and their
strong determination to win kept
the play interesting.   -
If Grand Forks can get ice
before the end ot the season
another game will be played, if
not Greenwood wins the Boundary championship.
In the first period the locals
made their first goal, Eddie
���Morrison scored on.a pass.from
Dick Taylor. N. Docksteader
evened up the score shortly afterwards for the Forks.
Greenwood went into the^ lead
soon after the second fperiod
started, Taylor scoring %r the
home boys, but before the gong
sounded Galipeau .sent the puck
into the net for the visitors, making the score 2-2. f W7' 7
In the final period Clerf scored
the last goal which won the game
fprthe locals byJ5-2.v 7    _ .f:.-.

WThe;7 ladies    rinkf committee

Immigration Policies
. Canada's .'lord of a larger- population was never moro generally recognized ihan at the present lime. The war burden being-carried by the nine millions of Canadians "Ih enormously heavy and constitutes a dead weight of
taxation which,is hampering industry and preventing investments along lines
of development through which employment can be increased. That war
burden canuot be lessened, hut through increased population the weight on
each Individual can be reduced, and It is the only way.
Furthermore, Canadians insist upon a high standard of living. They
demand modern conveniences of all kinds, and have a right to them. As ;i
result, Canada has been equipped with vast, transportation systems and all
modern means of 'communication, with unsurpassed educational systems,
great public utilities, and with the most up-to-date governmental institutions
of all kinds. These are capable of serving hundreds of thousands of more
people than are now in the Dominion. Those now here have, therefore, to
hear an overhead expense and pay; charges winch, if distributed among a
larger number would be easy to carry and not constitute a burden.
-More people is Canada's need, but if they are to be the asset required and-
not a liability they must be sound mentally, morally and physically; not
shirkers, but workers. And unless as a Dominion we are content to make
progress at a snail's pace, this much needed added population must be secured thorugh immigration.
Sir Clifford Sifton, in i.he recent address referred fo in this column last
week, spoke of wise and unwise policies in  the effort to obtain and retain
Will Carry Parachutes
Aeroplanes  Conveying   Passengers   In
France    Must   Afford    This
Since January tho first alt-French
aeroplanes carrying passengers have
been obliged to carry parachutes. This
fact was made public at a conference
of members of the French aerial syndicate.
Regarding the value of tho parachute, a conclusive experiment was
recently carried out by a French woman, Mile. Collin. Last month, while
travelling in an aeroplane at 90 miles
an hour, she dropped off tho aeroplane with a parachute, which unfolded itself in a normal manner.
Scientists had stated that such a
feat was impossible. .Mile. Collin's,
exploit hits fully proved the utility of
parachutes in aeroplane flights, particularly when pianos are in danger of
crashing down witli their passengers.

Muscles of Face and Limbs
Chorea, or as it is more generally
known, St. Vitus dance, is a, trouble
that usually attacks young children,
though older people may bo afllicted
with it. Its most common syniptoms
aro a twitching of the muscles of the
face-and limbs. As the disease progresses the twitching takes the form
of spasms In which the jerking motion may be confined to the head, or
all the limbs may bo affected. Frequently the patent is unable to hold
anything in tlie hands or to walk
steadily. In severe cases the speecli
is often affected. The disease is due
to debility of tho nerves and relief
comes through an enriched blood supply, which feeds and strengthens the
nerves. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
have been most successful in reaching
this trouble through their specific action on the blood, which it enriches
and purifies. The following instance
will show what Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills can do in this trouble. Mrs. ,S.

Will Supply  Farm  Help
Farmers    Can     Secure     Application
Form* From Nearest C.P.R.
Bringing of farm help to Western
Canada from Europe, inaugurated under a special scheme by the Canadian
Paciflo Railway last year, will be continued this year, it is announced by
ollicials of the company.
During 3923 about 3,000 men and
women for farm help wero brought
out, but many moro than this number
are expected this season. Tho first
of Iheso will arrlvo about March 31st,
coming from Great Britain, Denmark,
Switzerland and other parts of Europe.
Application forms aro being supplied to all farmers who need help by
the nearest C.P.R. agent or the CoIt
onization Department at Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winuipeg or Montreal. The forms are filled out by
the farmer, in which ho states tho
class of labor, nationality he wishes
and the rale of wages ho is prepared
to pay. These forms are then forwarded to Europe and the farm help
selected by a competent organization
and the laborer is sent forward to tho
individual farmer. Fanners who require help would facilitate this work
by writing applications at an early
date so the proper class can be selected and ample.time given to this work.

Bring East and
West Closer Together
Sir Charles Fitzpatrick Stresses Need
Of     Cementing     Canadian
Addressing the Rotary Club at Montreal, Sir Charles Fitzpatrick, former
chief justice of Canada, and former
lieutenant-governor of Quebec, laid
stress on the need for improving facilities for the conversion into wealth
of the vast products of the prairie
provinces and of doing all that was
possible to bring Eastern and Western Canada'closer together.
He recommended, as policies to this
end, the-preservation of lhe St. Lawrence waterways as Canadian; encouragement of the efforts of British
Columbia in developing tho port 'of
Vancouver as a grain exporting harbor; and the elimination of views in
the west of Canada that, looked north
and south, rather than east and west.
Powerful Wireless Station
Now Being Erected at Vancouver for
Royal Canadian Air Force.
The first step in the erection of the

of the Koyal Canadian Air Force has
been completed in the lay of cement
foundations for the masts. Steel
for the masts, whicli will be 300 feet
tall, has arrived from the east, and
Ihey will b.e. erected, shortly."
The new'station will contain both
.wireless and radio sending and receiving apparatus and will be powerful
enough to communicate with High
River, Alta., nearly 500 miles,east.

Musical    Records    No*w   Said   to   be
Produced      On .'   Pocket
A piece of tissue paper aud a comb
havo long survived as instruments of
music���or of torture! The latest
development In the -manufacture is
that of tho pocket handkerchief.
It is claimed that a pocket handkerchief or a pillow case, can be converted into an instrument of sweetness by
a simple process of immersion.
The patentee of this remarkable development claims that it is possible to
impose eleven new tunes on the same
piece of malerial,.;and that an inexperienced man can turn out a dozen of
the new records in less time than il
takes an expert to produce a gramophone record of the ordinary type.
A silk - handkerchief, on which a
well-known piece of .classical music
had been played, was taken from tho
machine, thrown across . the room,
jumped on, replaced'-'on the machine,
and made to repeat the tune smoothly
and distinctly.
A portion of a linen pillow-case was
made to give forth a striking reproduction of perfectly-blended stringed
The new records aro almost indestructible, do not need any special protection in transit, and can bepacked
into the smallest possible space.
Grading Of Bacon
Time Not Opportune to Set Up Canadian Standards
Improvement of Canadian swine
stock, by selection in the Dominion,
rather than by importation of animals
from abroad and the securing of
greater uniformity in exhibition judging, was advocated by the directors at
the annual meeting of the Canadian
Swine Breeders' Association held in
Toronto. J. E. Brethour, president,
in his annual address, said that the
past year had been unprofitable for
swine breeders owing to poor marketing conditions in Europe, but there
--were indications that price would advance- in the very near future.
Tho question of the Dominion Gov-
ernment establishing a standard' for
the grading of bacon was strongly defended by the delegates from Alberta
and Saskatchewan. Action was deferred pending a report by the Federal
Department of Agriculture. IT. S.
Arkell, livestock commissioner for
Canada, statfed that the department
has been studying the question and
had ascertained from the Old Country
facts with respect to the sale of Canadian, bacon overseas. He did not believe.the time was opportune to at*
tempt to introduce in Canada a definite system for the grading of bacon.

In Upper Bavaria a wireless station
Is using mountain peaks for masts.
The wires are supported by a strong
cable and extend from one peak 5,100
feet high, a distance of about, a mile
and a half across country to the top
of a smaller hill of some 2,820 feet
elevation. The station is designed
to communicate directly with the Fat-
East. Special arrangements were
necessary for- the fixing of the cable'
ends and to allow for its stretching.
The end of thc cable is 'fastened to a

cable is bent by snow or wind the

Christian Valley Notes
M. Scbenck was up to Larson's
ranch last week.
Joe Christian returned last week
from a trip to Rock Creek.
Guner Lindgren and Frank
Christian who have been at home
for a few days returned to the
camp last Thursday. 0
MoBt of the residents of the
Valley planned to surprise Mrs.
Charles Noren on Saturday, Feb.
7th. A. whole sleigh load of people
started out and" found on nearing
the ranch that .the family seemed
to have retired for the night.
They gave a few wild yells to
waken the family which Mrs.
Noren took for a band of coyotes
and they were almost up to the
door before ,she discovered her mistake. There was a wild scramble
for clothes then by the older members of the family and it was a
very surprised woman who opened
the door. Wraps were removed
while everybody talked and laughed at once. Pies and cakes were
brought from the sleigh. There
was a good floor and music which
the younger people soon took advantage of. About midnight the
party broke up after a jolly time.
It was the first surprise party held
in the Valley but it will certainly
not be the last.

On Saturday, February 16th a
Banquet was given in honour of
the above at the Rock Creek Hotel
by the Local Branch of the United
Farmers and Farm Women.
In spite of the bad state of the
roads, between thirty and forty
were present and many more wrote
expressing their disappointment of
being unable to attend.
Mr. G. Pitman, president of the
U. F. was in the chair.
After dinner Mrs. A. D. McLennan, late president of the
U. F. W., presented Mrs. Lewis
with a cut glass rose bowl .and an
address; in her speech referring to
the excellent work Mrs. Lewis had
done as secretary of the organization and also to her never failing
sympathy and interest in all matters connected with this work and
in conclusion .remarked on the
great loss Mrs. Lewis would be to
the many who knew and loved her,
Mrs. Lewis rose and made a charming reply in which .she said what
great pleasure it had always given
her to work with Mrs. McLennan
and all the other members of the
TJ. F. W. and that one of her chief
regrets in leaving the neighborhood
was that it ended her association
with them, but she hoped that in
the near future she might have the
pleasure of showing them all their
beautiful gift in its new surroundings.
Mr. Pitman in making the presentation to tho Commander of an
inscribed gold fountain pen and
pencil spoke of the leading part he
had always taken in local and public affairs and ofthe enthusiasm
with - which, he inspired all those
with those he came. in. contact, he.
felt/that .the1 Commander, .would
leave a gap which would be hard
to fill. 'The epeaker/madespeciai

ing , and  instructive ��� statistics / on
agriculture.       -X-X        f    "
In reply. Commander Lewis'said
that fhe -wished to tell them how
gratified and touched both he and.
his wife were., .at' the kindly
thoughts, that had inspired this
banquet /and presentation; . inasmuch as they*, had never"���.sought;

honour. was a tribute to their small,
.efforts." in ; the public life of, the
community.   ~   7 '*-.-  -       .-.      . ���
The speaker, then went on-to say
that he had of ten wondered whether
it was, to ."'a- person's .happiness to

or to remain outside on his own

News From the Capital
certain stories to his discredit were
being circulated round the Islands
Riding; one of them was true in
words but false in what it inferred,
and the other one, a deliberate lie.
However, although he would have
liked to have fought this matter
out and was quite prepared to give
the whole history of his life on any
platform, his friends considered
that inasmuch as he would have to
pass a large time iu answering
these slanders rather than expound
ing the principles of the Provincial
Party,"that ifc would be too heavy a
handicap to carry and "therefore"
said the speaker "I immediately
resigned; as for these slanders I
care just as much about them as I
do about the coyotes that howl
outside my house."
"Well, Ladies and Gentlemen
there is just one more item that I
must add to the credit side of my
balance sheet and that is the little
place in your hearts that we hope
and think we havo obtained, and
hope that we shall retain after we
leave Rock Creek, On behalf of
my wife and myself I thank you."
During the evening the toasts of
the U. F. and U. F. W. were proposed by Mr. McLennan and Mr.
E. Fenwick Wilson and many
complimentary speeches were made
to the Commander aud Mrs. Lewis.
A varied musical programme
was much appreciated.
Thanks are due to Mrs. McLennan, Mr. T. Walker and Major
Gray for the excellent arrangements made. '
In conclusion Mr. Hanson and
Miss Pritchard are greatly to be
congratulated-on-a really first class

Victoria, Feb. 20.���Emphatic
denial is given by Premier-Oliver
to statements of the Opposition
and Third party that there is a
bad tangle in the arrangements
for the coming court of  revision.
"There ifabsolutely no tangle
except in the cobwebbed minds of
those accustomed to shooting off
their mouths about nothing," he
declares. "There would be no misunderstanding if people would
read the statutes intelligently,
but some cannot; or when they
do read they cannot understand
what they have read. If anyone
says there is a tangle let him
take legal proceedings and find
The suggestion that the government intends to dissolve the
Legislature before the revision of
voters' lists commences on April
7 is ridiculed-and put down by
members of the cabinet as "another attempt of the opposition
to embarrass the government and
mislead the public."
Premier Oliver points out that
the voters? lists are being revised according to tb_e law of the
province and the task will be
carried out with   fairness  to  all.
