With trade reviving, everr reliance may be placed oa the telephone, vrltich is sach
a principal factor in industrial development. British Columbia is particularly fortunate in that telephone lines radiate from ihe principal cities to all ooints, so that
instant means of communication are always available.
The duplicate snbmarine between Point Grer and Naoalmo was laid this month,
doubling- fae facilities for telephoning between the mainland and Vancouver Island.
New loajr distance lines have been built en Vancouver Island and Uironghont the lower
Fraser valley, both north and south of the river. Very few applications are unfilled
because oi lack of facilities, so that the telephone always taken for granted, will not
fail yon. -.....'. -

Junior Red Cross
. The peace-time program of the
Red Cross League of Nations, to
which the Canadian Red Cross is
signatory, embraces and embodies
the very important platform of
Red Cross instruction to the children. This branch is known as the
Junior Red Cross, and in Canada
this is the medium through which
the Canadian Red Cross is endeavoring to -induce among the
children and young people Red
Cross instructions and activities of
an educational and social value.
In this situation, the Red Cross
aims to. enlist the services of the
children and young people on be>
half of suffering childhood to minister to the needs of thoBe children
leas fortunately situated than
themselves, and more especialty,
until the post-war work of the
Society is completed, to the children of soldiers or-those suffering
directly as the result of the. Great
War. In this respect it will furnish, to children and young people
a successful and healthy outlet for
their energies and present to them
a definite purpose for which their
talents may be employed.

The Hon. Dr. MacLean arrived
in Greeawood Friday afternoon on
a short visit to his constituents.
He is enjoying the best of health
in spite of his strenuous part taken
iu the late session but is quite glad
of the rest this trip is affording
On being asked by a Ledge representative as to the Moderation
Act the minister replied:
"The probability is, that the
Moderation Act will be brought
into effect by Order in Council
about the middle of this month.
Stores will be opened in the larger
centres first and a little later in
the smaller places. It is most
likely that Greenwood will have a
store and in this case a representative of the Commission will visit
the town in order to select a staff
and a suitable building." ��� ������ _ y ' '
In the interview the Doctor mentioned that the opening of the
Columbia & Western Lands, some
of which is situated north of Greenwood, will take place on July 12,
1921. All applications will require
to be in the hands of the Government Agent at Fairview on that day
in order to insnre consideration if
there should be more than one
application for any particular
piece of land. All applications received before the closing of the
office that day will be considered
as having been in at the same
time, and in all probability where
more than one application is received the particular piece of land
will be put np for tender and the
highest bidder will be given the
preference. Unsurveyed lands,
either for purchase or lease, will
have to be staked and advertised
and in this case priority pf staking
will'govern.   -
Continuing the Doctor said, that
it is the intention of the Government to give what information
was..ayaHable to the Government
Agents at Greenwood and Grand
Forks, with instructions to the
agent at each, place to. do everything in their power to assist applicants, and forward any applications they may receive to the
Government-Agent -at- Fairview.
It was also decided that the Government cannnot take notice oi
any applications for land received
heretofore and intending applicants- , should,. therefore,. govern
themselves accordingly and see
that a new application is iu. at
Fairview 7 before the 12 day of
July.. "���     .-..-���--- .. ���-.- .������<_. "-V  V.

business connected with the Hedley
Gold Mining Co., and has announced that development operations will be started right away in
the mine. The flume is being repaired and some slight damage

optimistic tone among the Hedley
business men and residents generally than has been the case for
some time past.

Lead mines, situated at the head-
waters of Downie creek, near

"And you've surprised Franklin's
���wife, too,*' This thought was slightly tinged whh bitterness, for Vera
had her pre-coneeived notions of

was resentment that her happy Httlc

' Oh, well I'll have to hang out the

her heart. You couldn't tell iter any-

knew what they were like, even thc

Thcy never thought a woman quite

happy. And I made Frank happy
as long as hc -was with me. And
now you're making >iim happy. I
know, by his le-tters:"
She looked long and lovingly at
Vera, and tenderly patted the hand
shc held. Isn't Franklin wonderful!" shc said with enthusiasm. ���'Isn't
he worth doing tilings for?"
They stepped into tlse tiny blue and
white kitchen.-     Oh, just like a toy
j house,'' exclaimed Franklin's mother,
j "I believe I could work here and en-
' joy it.     But I never did care for kitchens, and cooking seems a.mysterious art.     I always had someone else
do thc cooking, and I gave my'attention to the service end.     I. can pour
tea to perfection."
Vera watched Iter in bewilderment
as site went from room to room, talking entertainingly of many tthings.
Shc was an exquisite figure, slender
and light-footed, with silver blond
h:ur fashionably arranged, bright blue
eyes and a fresh pink and white complexion. Her small nose uplifted a
trifle' and there was ;t dimple in her
check. She had an air of permanent
youth. '1 he sort of person who never
grow-- up, thought Vera. Yet there
was. wisdom am! shrewdness, to<\ in
her bright eyes; and an undercurrent
in her silvery tones that twanged at
one's heart strings now and then.
"Such a dear sweet homc. ..I'm going to be happy here while I stay.
And I'm going to do all T can to make
my visit a happy memory for you,
you two dear children."
Children! Vera already felt old
and sober beside this light-voiced,
light-footed stranger. The elder
Mrs. Kirby tilted her head charmingly, with a sparkle of mischief in her
"Did my letter worry your 1 always announce my visit in that way,
that if I am suited I shall stay. But
I never stay." Her dimple came into
play. "I am a wanderer. When
Franklin's father was living,- we
traveled together and so I got into
gypsy ways. I have friends-' everywhere. So 1 come and visit, but T
never stay."
Vera watched her vivacious guest
as she arranged the roses shc had
brought in a cut-glass vase, A sudden tenderness crept into her heart.
A. thrilling longing, almost maternal
in its nature, to draw that gay, roving, childish spirit within thc sweet,
protective circles of home life.
���She went swiftly to the other woman's side and laid a caressing hand
on her shoulder.

(Growth Of Education
In Saskatchewan
Has Kept Pace With the Increase in
Despite the rapid growth of settlement in the prairie provinces, the education of tlic younger generation has
kept pace, with the increase in population. Faeh province has its Department of lulucation whose energies
havc been devoted to establishing
schools in every settlement, so that
every child throughout Western Canada might havc the advantages of a
public school. Just how far this
idea! has been accomplished may be
judged from the following statistics
vcliiiin; \<> the province of Saskatchewan :
On September 1st, !��i)5, when the
province was formed, there were $94
school districts, of which 10-were Separate schools. Since then tlie organization of M-'noo! districts lias been
so rapid that at one time a new school
was erected for every day in the
year, including Sundays and holidays,
aud at present there are- more thaw
4,300 school districts. ..if which JO are
separate schools. In 1905 there were
no secondary or high schools, though
:l few of the elementary schools were
doing high school work, but now

Saskatchewan One of Best Big Game
Countries  on  Continent.
Thc value of Saskatchewan's game
resources is no: generally known despite the fact that this province is one
of the best big game countries on tlie
continent. ,,   .
Last season alone a total of ��170
big game animals were secured by
licensed hunters. This-bag includes
80 caribou, S/0 deer and 1,200 moose.
Were the 1,200 head of moose secured
placed on The market, their meat alone
would fetch a very considerable sum.
These animals would each dress on
an average about 400 pounds, which
at thc low rate of fifty cents a pound
would amount to $240,000.
North of Prince. Albert is the caribou country, and while moose have
been secured all across the province
from Onion Lake eastwards, they are
especially plentiful >: from Crooked
River east to the.. Manitoba boundary,
within easy reach of thc railwaj'. In
this, d.ist ric.t...asin.aiiy.-as-..sixteen..!-, ioo.se

Increase in Game and Birds Proves
Value of Sanctuary Protection.
In his annual report for 1920, Mr.
J. B. Harkin, Commissioner o'f Dominion Parks, reporting on 'lhe value
of wihj life protection, says: "The.
continued increase in wild life in practically all of thc parks is most gratifying and affords lhc best evidence of
the value of sanctuary protection.
Reports from the various superintendents show that in thc three parks on
the eastern slope of the Rockies both
big game and game birds are coming
back in large numbers. Thc superintendent of Jasper Park reports that
this year .the bighorn, which a fc^v
years ago in that park had been re-'
chtced to .very small numbers, now
total 5,000. In the Southcsk River
hunting country contiguous to Jasper
Park last season there were reported
to be 2,000 bighorn, evidently an overflow from Jasper Park. Similar reports of better hunting conic from
practically all districts outside park-
boundaries indicating 'that the protection afforded by thc parks is not
only increasing the wild life within
their boundaries, but it is resulting,
as predicted, in a natural overflow of
game which is restocking the hunting areas,"

Sir Auckland Geddes "��� Reiterates
President's. Message to U.S.
Sir Auckland Geddes, British ambassador, speaking-at the Empire Day
dinner of the British Schools and
University Club of New York, reiterated President Harding's recent utterances against war.
.."Wc must not: forget the evils of
war," he said. "Let us resolve, as
the President said, that it must not
be again! Another''war-cannot bc
waged without horrors indescribable.
New weapons havc been devised
among them bacteria, to spread disease too horrible to contemplate. It
must not be.
"Do not let us forget the awful cost
of war, or'its horrors, also that the

this drag is sure, but wc all hope" to

disconcerting for a man to suddenly
havc the skids knocked out from under him aud to miss the pleasure of
the long, quiet twilight of life.
Not that any of us arc yearning for
that ''quiet twilight" business, hut it
is the best we will have when it
comes, so let's make the most of it.
It is a .fact that men and women

chronic disease. Very few people

unoccupied land pioblcm in Wcstcin Canada. It is also proposed that the
cpnfcrcncc consider the position of scltlers now on the land with .i view of
finding ways and means to increase llicir productivity to the country.
It nccd not bc argued that thc callinir of a conference for such a purpose is timely and in the national interest, for il has becn we'd said that the
economic future of the West and of Canada as a v\hoU\ depend'; upon the
proper settlement of thc unoccupied lands along existing nil way lines and,
upon thc improvement of conditions affecting the production of ba��ir farm   '  ,���

Managing Director of tlie Colonization Association, the vh w was clearly
and sliongly cxpicssed that unifoim legislation, calling for the listing oMm-
occupicd lauds at firm prices and for a reasonable period, was the keystone
Jo thc success of any: genuine colonization movement.
It is idle to advance thc theoiy that voluntary listing of unoccupied
hmds will suffice, for those who aie in a position to judge as to the possible
success of any voluntaiy movement arc seriously impressed with the ,tatc-
ment ol General McRac that the proposed legislation is both reasonable
and necessarv, if lhc money subscribed to lhc Western Canada Colonization
Association is to be expended in the national intnesr. Thc listing of unoccupied lands with the piovincial governments, will enable their Land
Boauls to issue maps and piicc lists similar lo those now issued by the
railway companies. Such maps and piicc lists will be generally distributed
and will not only .civc the purppsc of thc Western Canada Colonisation
Association, but as well all the land agencies ihioiighoul the piovinces. In
addition thc neccssaiy infoimation will bc provided to enable the Dominion
Government to direct immigrants to thc vacant lands near existing ia;h\ay
lines wheic homesteads arc no longer available,    i '   ~
Thc unqualified endorsation given thioughout the country to the proposal for provincial legislation is evidence that thc people of the West are
seriously anxious to effectively deal with, and find a solution lor; the unoccupied land pioblcm in the prairie provinces. " '      '
Thc proposed "intcr-piovincial Premiers'.conference'' will probably be
held al an caily date, the outcome of which will doubtless affect cvciy community interest in thc West. In thc meantime every -Board of Trade,
Municipal Council, Fanners',Organization, and all inteieited public bodies
and citizens, should give serious consideration to this impoilaui subject and
make icpicsentations in regaid thereto lo their respective Government-;.

Wheels turn easier and axles wear longer when they arc properly
lubricated with. Imperial Mica Axle Grease. Its powdered mica
flakes form a glassy surface for grease to work over. Thus friction
is reduced and wear retarded. It costs less than any other grease
because It lasts twice as long.
Imperial Eureka Harness Oil keeps your harness pliable,

a home, the happiest place in the world, not merely an

Of all places on earth, home is the mast' delicate and
serisative. It chords move with a breath; its fires are
kindled with a spark; its flowers are bruised with the
least rudeness. Here our hearts wear no covering1, no
armor. Every arrow strikes them, every old wave blows
full upon them. If we would have a true home, we must
guare well our thoughts and actions.
The best way to extend charity to persons who are in
need is to give them work. Don't give any able bodied
man a penny or a mouthful unless he works for it. By
this the man retains his self respect, and the profession of
the tramp is not encouraged. If a man needs help and is
able to work and you are tempted to give him something, don't you do it. But instead give him work. Odd
jobs can always be found, and set him at these. We do
not advise refusing to relieve hunger, but we do advise
that it be done in a manner that��\vill not breed dependence
iu men. If everyone would do this all over the land, this
country would soon cease to be the  paradise  for  tramps.
