H. S. Awrey, City Trustee,
is Promoted
Succeeded byD. D.Munro
Mr_iHardy S. Awrey, the Man.
ager of the Loan Department of
the Sun Life Assurance Company,
in British Columbia, and the
Trustee for the Debenture Holders
of this City,'has just returned
to Vancouver from Toronto, to
which City he had been called by
his Company. '
He has been appointed Manager
of the loans made and to be made
in Ontario by the Sun Life
Assurance Company, and will
very shortly leave Vancouver to
assume his new duties.
The officials and" citizens of
Greenwood regret \ Mr. Awrey's
severance from his Trusteeship,
but are greatly pleased at his
advancement to a much higher
and more responsible position
with his Company, with increased
Mr. D. D. Munro will succeed
to Mr. Awrey's present position
with the Sun Life, and to the
office of Trustee for the City's
Debenture Holders; and we have
uo doubt but that he will carry
out the policy inaugerated by
Mr. Awrey.
From his name we should
assume Mr. Munro to be, like
Alderman Kerr, a 'product of
Scotland'. His father came from
Edinboro Town, but the son was
born in Glengarry, believed to be
a County in Ontario.
Whilst Mr. Awrey is leaving
this Province, he assures us that
he will ever retain the kindliest
remembrance and friendly interest in Greenwood; whose people
wish him ever success in his new
office in his native Province, he
having been born in the shadow
of The Mountain,   at HaMlton.

Continuance    of    British'    Formality
Against Canadians Considered
X" Unfair 4    ���
Strong represeiitaitons are being
made to the foreign office against the
system -which makes it necessary for
Canadians at present to obtain passports before entering Great Britain.
Passports are unnecessary for British
people entering Canada'and continuance of the British formality against
Canadians is considered unfair. The
recent increase iu the price for passports, from two to flvo dollars each,
adds force to the movement and it is
expected that the present regulation
will be rescinded immediately.

Delicate Apparatus Diagnosis Morals
of Human Beings
Dr. Z. Bissky, of Kieff, has invented
a most delicate apparatus which he
calls the radio diagnoscope. It is an
electrical apparatus the size of a hand
camera, and its inventor, states that
by its aid an accurate diagnosis can
be made of any human being from tlie
medical, moral and intellectual points
of view. Dr. Bissky. informed the
writer that he has examined.with his
invention hundreds of. criminals in
Kieff and Warsaw prisons. Although
the doctor had never seen his subjects
before, he could state, after a few seconds of examination, that: "No. 1 is a
murderer; No. 2 is wrongly accused
of murder; No. 3 is a hardened thief;
No. 5''is a violent political agitator;
No:' 5 is innocent," and so on. The
Russian police informed Dr. Bissky
that his diagnosis in. each case was

Re Gopher Extermination
Midway School
Report for March
Attention is called to the fact
that a small appropriation lias
again been made available by the
Department of Agriculture for
assisting in the extermination of
gophers and ground squirrels during the coming season.
It is urged that in those interior
districts where both the Brown
Pocket Gopher and Columbian
Ground Squirrel are proving such
pests and involving considerable
loss to the orchards and mixed
farming industries, strong effort be
made to supplement individual
action along the lines of trapping,
poisoning, shooting &c, by interesting the school children and
young people of the district'in
entering gopher killing competitions, .which should be organized
as soon as possible.
In the year 1922, the Department of Agriculture granted assistance along the line of the payment
of bounties for tails sent in and
certified to by local organizations
&c. This year, however, the Department will help local bodies
holding competitions to kill gophers
by means of grants of dollar for
dollar, not to exceed a maximum
of ��20.00 for any one Institute or
Farmer's Organizations. Local
Institutes or Farmer's Organizations should therefore arrange for
such competitions where considered advisable, making proper provision for the prize money.
The results of the competition
are to be set forth in detail, signed
by President and Secretary, and
forwarded, with an application for
the proper grant,' to the Department later in the season.
Any local Institutes or. Farmer's
Organizations taking. thiB. scheme
up should communicate with' the
Department,[ of;-Agriculture, Vic-
X toria, at once."     7 ; W W   ..'.'-' 7'

"Brawn of the North"
R, W. Taylor's Auction
The Public Auction aJ_R. W.
Taylor's ranch, Rock Mountain,
Bridesville, was w^l attended,
between two and three hundred
being present.. The roads were
not in the best of condition, several people having difficulty with
their cars owing to the mud.
Prices for cattle were good,
varying from $100.00 for cows to
$26.00 for-heifers. Hay and grain
brought poor prices, owing to
expense of transportation. Implements and machinery brought
fair prices, while household
effects fair to middling.
Strongheart, the dog star, is called upon to do some strenuous fighting with timber wolves in "Brawn
of the North," his newest picture.
Naturally he is successful on the
screen; but this also applies to the
outcome of many bouts while the
company was on location. Of the
score or more of wolves -Laurence
Trimble was using, there was not
onn that Stronghrart could not
beat.      ../,-
