-_ To most people, the connecting or disconnecting of a telephone seems
a simple operation of installing or removing the instrument As a matter
of feet, in every ease it necessitates changes in the cables and wires over-
bead-or underground. It also necessitates changes in central offices wires
and switchboard connections; in subscribers' accounts and directory listings;-
and frequently requires new "drop" lines from open wires or cables. The
problems of station movement are among tie large problems of telephone
service. Because of the double operation of disconnecting and,reconnecting,
the work involved is often twice as great aa in tbe case"of new subscribers-

Motorists unanimously declare
that the best roads iu the Province are between Bridesville and
Grand Forks but they particularly
praise the roads around Greenwood for- safety, hard bed and
beauty. The tourist trade has
become an important industry
and the numerous points -of attraction in the surrounding
countryside should be emphasized.
A Bureau of Information, or a
printed pamphlet dealing with
this subject should be available
for distribution. Good roads are
something motorists delight to
cover quickly but, the natural
beauties should hold the traveller.
The need of this is stressed by
well wishing travellers repeated*'
The following interesting items
were received from Wm. Lakeland formerly of Greenwood but
now Provincial Constable at Fair-
view;���" It is remarkable and
pleasingto see so many old town
friends as they pass along the
Okanagan. There has been quite
a number of Grcenwoodites touring along through here this summer, and the only fault is that
they dont stay long enough to let
you know everything you would
wish regarding the old hang out.
Jim Bush was along some time
ago with his hat at about the
same angle, then comes the genial ~ Doc. Goodeve hunting for
Okanagan tomatoes, aad quite a
few more of those that are well
known. I also had a visit from
Billy Hibbert recently ot Anaconda who motored over the Fair-
view Summit from Hedley where
be is employed at the Nickle
Plate. Mr. Hibbert stayed over
night and I consequently was
able to get quite a little news of
the old berg from him. He expects to move from Hedley to
Coalmont where he has the
chance of a good job. We have
quite a-few here now from the
old berg, C. Hamtnerstadt, G. A.
Rendell, Charlie- Martin, M.
Beattie, Fred McMann and others
but it would not be advisable for
people to come here who have not
got anything to come to, as this
place has dropped quite dead lately aed^does sot look like reviving
for some time yet although there
is a time coming when this place
is going to be some town. Hope
everybody in old Greenwood are

interment will take place in the
family plot. The funeral was
largely attended and many floral
tributes were sent by the sorrowing
friends of the deceased.
Mining News
The proof that the work of pioneers in the district was based upon
solidity of careful research is evidenced this week by the  entrance
of a strong company into the Rock
Creek  district.    Many   years' ago
Rock Greek  was turned  over by
stalwart-placer miners hut'-when""
the   Greenwood    district    offered
greater   attractions    in   lode, and
quartz ores its fame w_as forgotten.
Now comes the Jack Paul  Mining
Company of Spokane into the district with the purpose of developing leads found adjacent   to Rock
Creek which is contributory to the
Greenwood  district.     Of  unusual
local interest is the fact that Fred
Keffer, once so   active   in   Greenwood mining interests and known
as a most conservative engineer is
connected with this new enterprise.
Ij_augere _well_for_the_company, that _
men of Mr. Keffer's reputation have
connected    themselves   with   the
holding company.    In   past years
Mr.   Keffer   when   in  Greenwood
went far afield in his  exploitations
and was known as a most careful
examiner   of   mining   properties.
Associated, with   Mr,   Keffer are
some local gentlemen and Provincial   extra ' registration ia   applied
for.    The directors are at present
visiting Greenwood and  speak enthusiastically of the districts future.

Be A True Sportsman
The shooting season in Canada's Western Province is at hand and young
and inexperienced sportsmen will vie with seasoned old lumtrs in taking toll
of wild duck, prairie chicken, Kee.se and bigger game. In many respects the
West constitutes the amateur hunter's paradise. In other Provinces, to a
very great extent, it is necessary lor sportsmen to travel far afield from home
to enjoy the hunting season, hut in the Prairie West wild duck are to be
found on almost every pond, slough and lake, while prairie chicken feed
about the stocks of grain and roost, in the little wooded bluffs which dot the
farm homesteads.
These game birds are one of tin? assets c>r our Canadian West, and an
asset worth protecting. Apart altogether from the sport of hunting, these
birds have a high food value and are a delicacy much enjoyed by all. During the close seasons their presence adds to the picturesqueness of Western
life and call forth expressions ot* interest and delight from permanent residents, visitors and tourists.
It. is in the interests of all, therefore, but. perhaps more particularly in
the interests of the sportsmen themselves, lhat restraint should be exercised
by all hunters at the opening of, and throughout tlK> shooting season. Laws
have been enacted restricting the period of the. "open season," limiting the
size of the. daily and seasonal '"bags," ami imposing penalties for infractions
of these ordinances. Violations of these laws are, however, not always easy
of detection, but if. should be a part of every true sportsmen's code that he
observe these laws which have been enacted for his Own and the public good,
aud that he should actively interest himself in seeing that such laws are
obeyed by others, and offenders brought to hook.
Old-timers can recall when the buffalo ranged over these prairies in countless thousands; so numerous in fact that any thought of the possibility of
their extermination never entered the mind of anyone. Vet a comparatively few years of wanton, wholesale slaughter and the buffalo disappeared and
is only to be seen today in zoological gardens and in specially prepared Government reserves. In like manner the industrious little beaver. Canada's
national animal, was in danger of extermination until the killing of beaver at
any and all times was prohibited.
A report recently issued by the British Columbia Government stales that
the famous Fraser River, the greatest river in the world for years In its
yield of cockeye salmon, whose Avaters only a decade ago were so crowded at
spawning seasons of the year that a person could literally walk across a solid
mass or fish, is1" now fished out of sockeye, and that the Skeena River, for decades second only to the Fraser in its salmon production, has practically
reached the same condition. And the salmon industry was not so long ago
one of British Columbia's greatest industries, and one which advertised tliat
Province all over the world. . The men who have been responsible for thus
annihilating the salmon in a hurry-up get rich quick scheme have ruined not
only their own business but have inflicted irreparable loss on their Province
and Dominion.
There should  be  an object lesson in these things, the force  of which
should not be lost upon every man who takes out a hunter's license in the
Wcste.rn.Proyince^tlrls. ygaiv^

Coaching Through London
of
Enthusiasts Pay for Privileg-a
Handling Ribbons
One of the most entrancing sights
of London to many visitors is the
fine coach-and-four which every
morning makes its way along Piccadilly and so out on to the high
road, with a load of happy passengers for Hampton Court���a three
hours' run. But few peoplo who see
tho coach and listen entranced to the
guard's cheery blast ou his posthorn���
few Londoners even���know that the
vehicle is driven each day by a different man of means, a coaching enthusiast, who pays so much towards
the maintenance of the service for the
privilege of being allowed lo handle
the ribbons. It is quaint things like
this���and there are many of them���
that make London so fascinating,'
alike to the visitor and the man who
"belongs."���Overseas Daily Mail.
A CORDIAL
INVITATION TO DISEASE
This is an apt description of Constipation. It's an unnatural condition to begin with���but it's dangerous
because it leads to indigestion, fills
the system with poisons, brings on
anaemia. You don't need a purgative, you don't want to weaken the
system by a harsh griping medicine
���what you need is mild natural stimulant to the bowels. You' get just
what you need in Dr. Hamilton's Pills
which tone up the liver, restore the
bowels to perfect action and postively
end constipation. You'll feel tiptop
after regulating your system with Dr.
Hamilton's Pills. Good for young and
old���a real family medicine. 25c all

The Mad Motorist
Just Penalty for the Man Who Endangers Human Life
One thing is certain, the motorist
who goes careening through the
streets, without regard for the life
and limb of pedestrians, or who operates his car while under the influence
of liquor, ls as much a menace to the
community as a mad dog and deserves
no more consideration. In addition
to other penalties imposed, persons
found guilty of these graver violations should be deprived forever of the
privilege of driving automobiles. If a
cashier embezzles his employer's
money he is not usually again to be
trusted with the handling of funds.

Praise for the Sparrow
Much Maligned Bird Is Prominent
Amongst Insect Destroyers
When the harbinger of spring, tiie
robin, Incurs the wrath of the farmer
for its incursions into the orchard or
the strawberry patch, the despised
English sparrow will have difficulty in
edging into his good graces. This
maligned-bird, however, has a friend
at court, and its virtues are recited in
an official report of the biological survey of the department of agriculture.
The report-explains that studies of
birds as insect destroyers and of vermin and parasite pests, extending
through a century of 'Observation,
show that many so-called bird pests
are active aids to the farmer as insect destroyers.
/ The survey proves that the sparrow
is one of the prominent birds which
feed upon the seventeen-year locust,
asparagus beetle, locust lead- miner,
caterpillar, canker, army and drop
worms, and that the .quail,-usually' a
seed eater, also feeds on the locust
the olive scale." W.L. McAtee, of
the United States biological survey,
cites cases where flocks of birds haye
destroyed insect plagues and their
eggs and larvae so completely that
such species never have returned to
the localities where they were causing
much damage. Ordinarily, of course,
the birds are. not sufficiently numerous to cope with widespread insect invasions.���SI. Thomas Times-Journal.
Meaning of Conservation
How to. Make  the/Best  Use  of Our
. Natural Resources
- Curious how many people entirely
misunderstand the meaning of conservation. We overheard someone,
not long ago, talking glibly of the
need of conserving our forests, and
it became evident that his idea was
that someone should prevent the lumbermen from cutting down the trees.
Conservation means use; intelligent
use. as distinguished from wasteful
use. Canada has been endowed by
nature with' incalculable natural resources, but it is mere folly to brag
of those resources, to pat ourselves
on the-back as thought their possession were in some way a merit of
our own, unless we are prepared to.,
get to york and put them to,the best
possible use. Our waterpowers
might as well be in Greenland unless
we are determined; to develop them,
and to develop them Intelligently. Our
timber resources arc inexhaustible
if we., practice conservation in their
use, and that does not"' mean letting
them alone, but cutting scientifically
and adopting a policy of reforestation. Our enormous coal resources
are capable of adding immensely to
the national wealth, and makingitsifc
dependent, of outside-sources of supply, if we put our experts;to the problem of how to. make them economically accessible to the country as a
whole.���Ottawa Journal

AH For His Children
This Man Might Bo Able to. Settle
Germany's War Debt
A writer in a German newspaper
has.been estimating the fortune of
that mystery magnate, Hugo. Stinnes.
Before the * war it was reported that
his private wealth amounted to M35,-
000,000���gold marks, of course. His
fortune today is more difficult to estl-;
mate because it is scattered over
many companies in numerous .countries. But financial circles, who
study these things with much interest,
say-ihat he is now worth M140,000,000
���gold. He has therefore quadrupled
his wealth during the war and since.
In paper, that fortune equals the dizzy
figure of M7,000,000,000, so that Hugo
Stinnes is a millionaire ln paper
marks 7,000 times over. Asked recently why he worked night and day
piling up millions, he remarked: "It is
for my children." He has two sons
and a daughterv^Montreal Gazette.

Among the many who have found
benefit through ihe use of Dr. Williams Pink Pills is Mrs. Albert W.

"I was very much broken down in
health, had pains in the region of my
heart, and was so short of breath that
if I went upstairs I would have to lie
down as soon as I reached the lop.
Then a strange nervous twitching of
the muscles took possesion of me,
and eveiy muscle in my body would
apparently be 'twitching. I became
verj emaciated, and my family were
much alarmed as lo my condition. At
this time I read an article in our home

The result was thai iu a short time I

too, some of the Bulkley and Nechako
River Valley country, one of the newest fields of settlement opened up in
the west. Unknown to tlie vast majority of Canadians, the luxurious valleys that lay between tho mountain
ranges in this area, are suitable for
mixed.farming;'dairying, fruit growing
and cattle raising. In the years to
come their productivity, now a matter
of knowledge to comparatively few,
will offer'means of livelihood and competence to thousands of new people.
Shortly after leaving Prince George,
the party will puss through Mount
Robson Park. This is a veritable
wonderland, of mountain scenery,
some G50 square miles in extent and
set aside by the Government of British Columbia as a national playground and wild life sanctuary. Here
will be obtained an excellent view of
Mouut Robson, with an altitude of
13,0(18 feet. It towers above the surrounding peaks, sublime, majestic,
with green glistening glaciers and
pure white snow adding to its beauty.
Sometimes its own summit is lost
amid the mists and clouds; quite often that summit is the centre of raging storms. But on Mount Robson
Ihey, beat in vain.
Next Jasper Park, another mountain
kingdom, but of greater extent, embracing 4,400' square miles of sublime
mountain scenery, is entered. Here
the party will spend a day at Jasper

tlie shore of Lac Beauvert by Canadian National Railways,.and"the first
of a series lo be built- throughout

New Plan to Exterminate Rodents
Use Poison Gas to Clear French Fields
- of Mice
The valley of Ajole, on the Swiss-
French frontier, has been invaded by
thousands of' mice, and the rodents
are doing much damage. They are
believed to have come ��� from the
trenches in Alsace. The village authorities have arranged drives by the
people, offeiing half a cent for each
dead animal. Poison gas is being
used and the method is to inject this
into the^ subterranean galleries" built
by the mice. It has proved most
effective, 27,000 dead being tiie record
tor one day.
Internally and.Externally it is Good.
���The crowning property of Dr.
Thomas* Eclectric Oil is .that it can
be used internally for many complaints as 'well as externally. For
sore throat', croup, whooping cough,
pains in the chest, colic and many
kindred ailments it has qualities that
are unsurpassed. A bottle of it costs
little and there is no los3 In always
having it at hand.
The subject of today's-lesson-is
broader'than the text, especially tiie
verses printed. The best way to
teach this lesson is to give a", survey
of the entire book.
Malachi was perhaps. contemporary
with Nehemiah; probably: sustained
the same relation to Nehemiah that
Haggai and Zechariah did to Zerub-
babel. After the .completion ofthe
walls of Jerusalem Nehemiah seems
Ao have been called back to the Persian court, but returned to Jerusalem
after a few years. Though outwardly tho lives of the people were correct, the prophet pointed out the sins
of a corrupt priesthood, mixed, marriages and a failure to pay tithes.
I. Israel's Base Ingratitude .(1.-1-5).
God approached them with the tender affirmation -"I have loved you." It.
was the prophet's burden to declare
this fact unto them (v. 1). So formal
and worldly were the people that they
failed to see God's hand upon them.
The attitude of Israel to God Is shown
in. the skeptical insinuation "Wherein
has Thou loved us?" The prophet
answers this by showing God's choice
of Jacob and His passing by Esau;
His destruction of Edom and saving
Israel.
II. God's Severe Indictment (1,6-2:17).
1.'Against the    Priests    (1:6-2,9).
They were guilty (1) of profanity
(1:6). -Their profanity was in despising the name of God. To'fail to honor God is to be profane. To use His
name in any unreal way Is to-be thus
guilty. (2) Sacrilege (vv.-7. 8). Their
sacrilegious act was In offering' polluted bread and blemished sacrifices.
To bring-such offerings to an earthly
ruler would be a gross insult. Gifts
to be acceptable with God must be
genuine; must, cost something. We
should give to God our best. There
is. rib intellect too brilliant to offer in
the Lord's service. The young should
not esteem their lives wasted who
offer them on the altar of missionary
sacrifice. (3) Greed (1:10). They
were not willing to open the doors of
God's house without pay. Our service should be out of a heart of love for
God,..not for profit., This has a vital
application to ministers and evangelists today. To enter Christian service because of worldly gain is of this
type. (4) Weariness (1:12, 13). Because of lack of love the routine of
duty became irksome. (5) Not teaching the law to the people (2:1-9).
Those set apart to teach God's law to
the people havo a great responsibility
and God will most surely demand s.n.
accounting.
2. Against the People (2:10-17; 3:7-
15).     (1) For ungodly marriages (2:
II, 12). God's purpose in the prohibition of mixed marriages was that He
might, raise up holy seed (v. 15). Thc
marriage of the believer with the unbeliever today brings confusion into
the fold of God and turns aside Hi.;
purpose. (2) for divorce (2:13-16).
Divorce was the source of great sorrow���even the tears of the wronged
women covering the altar (v. 13).
The offerings of a man who had thus
treated his wife would be an abomination to God. Tho tears of wronged
women today are going up to God and
make-even the prayers ol" some men
an abomination to Him. (3) Public
wrongs (3:5, 6). (a) Sorcery���
magic. "Those .who practice such
things should be regarded as public
offenders (b) Adultery. This is a sin
of wider extent than the parlies concerned. (c)~~False "swearing! (d)
Oppression' of the hireling, widow and
fatherless. (e) Turned aside the
stranger from his rights. (4) Blasphemy (3:13-15).
III. The 'Severe Judgments Which
Shalf Befall the Nation (3:1-5;
4:1-6). '
1. By Whom Executed. This is
done by the Lord. ' Judgment has
been committed, to thc Son of God
(Acts 17:30-31).      -
2. Time of Second Coming of Christ.
John the Baptist was the forerunner
of His 'first coming. Elijah shall be
the forerunner of His-second coming.
-8. Result. For the righteous it will
be a day of healing and salvation. To
the wicked it will be a day of burning
and destruction. . A book of remembrance Is now being kept. A day of
retribution Is coming.

Said to be Able to Eat a  Meal That
Would Satisfy Five Ordinary
Appetites
Many great musical composers had
exceptionally largo appetites. When
Handel dined alone at a restaurant
he generally took the precaution of
ordering a meal for three. Once, on
asking, "Iss de tinner retty?" at, a
tavern where he was little Known,,
lie was told, '.'as soon as the company

by seating himself with the remark,
"Den pring up he tinner���I'm de company!"
Handel, always voracious, delighted in dining alone, and was known to
consume a meal that would have satisfied five ordinary appetites.

City Council
City   Council   held   a   regula
meeting on Monday evening, Mayor
Gulley in the chair and all Alder
men present.
Routine business was quickly
disposed of so as to leave ample
time for^discussion of finance re
port and the lenghty reports of the
Water and Health committees.
Many features of the finance report
were satisfactory, but the lighting
and watei accounts showed a debit
balance, chiefly owing to heavy repair expenses and tardiness of payment by some consumers. In accordance with the instructions received from the trustee for.the
bond holders, the council notified
the City Clerk to warn those consumers of light aud water who are
neglecting payment that service
will be discontinued at the end of
the present month,
The report of the' Water Committee was dealt with and great
satisfaction expressed by the rebt
of the council for the very able
manner in which this committee
and the City Clerk have dealt with
the matter of protecting the water
rights of the city. Considerable
correspondence has ensu6d with
the Water Rights Department at
Victoria in connection with the application of W. Jenks for a water
right on-Twin Creek and it has only
been by personal investigation by
the committee that certain arguments advanced have been satisfactorily answered. The matter is
still under consideration but the
water committee are keeping in
close touch with all the happenings
attached thereto.
The Health Committee reported
an abatement of the pollution of
Twin Creek by cattle congregating
at a certain point which had been
illegally fenced off. The Provincial Health Department co-operated with the Health Committee in*
the investigation of the complaints
made by several citizens and which
same complaints proved to be. well

I Listening for His Masters Voice
"Billy." Quebec's tramp dog, is
still seeking his lost soldier master.
When the boys came back on the
"Empress "of France" he and "Billy"
became separated and "Billy" has
been looking for him ever since. He
meets the "Empress" each time she
arrives at Quebec, sniffs at" the passengers who come down the gangway, walks away with an air of disappointment and then waits for the
next passenger ship. Everybody's
friend but no man's dog for long,
"Billy" has as many names as he has
friends, answering with a wag of his
tail to "Bum," "Tramp," "Bijou,"
"Rags,"*'Taddy," etc. Now and
taca aa admirer takes "Billy" home,
but in a few days the little wire=hair-
ed terrier is nobody's dog again���nobody's but the lost master's���and is
back on the docks once more to meet
'the ships  and  him.
How "Billy" knows when a -passenger ship is due is a mystery of the
Quebec water front, but know he
does. He is as regular and prompt
as the customs' men, greets the incoming steamer with ioyous barking/
and after he has bossed the~job of
placing the great hawsers which
moor her alongside the pier, he dashes to the'gangway and looks for a
"once familiar figure, khaki-clad, Perhaps some day the lost master will
return. And if he does, faithful
"Billy" will he tliere. ^~
