Greenwood District Rod &
Gun Club Takes Action
An emergency meeting of the
executive of tbe Greenwood and
District Rod and Gun Club was
held this morning to consider the
game regulations published in
the B. C. Gazette of Aug.  27th.
Reports were ou hand from
various parts of the district and
it was an unanimous decision that
both willow and blue grouse were
as plentiful as in former years.
A. strong protest is being wired
to the Attorney. General against
the closing of the- district in respect of willow grouse and
against the season for bli^e grouse
not opening until Oct. 1st.
.This matter will be followed
up by personal representation at
Victoria if necessary from the
R<*d and Gun Club, as it is felt
that -the regulations have been
issued without any consultation
of the wishes of the people of the
district and without due knowledge of the game bird conditions.
The local member, Dougald
McPhersonv ���h,2s _ promised \ his
hearty support of the protest
and it is --hoped that the
regulations will be amended and
placed on the same basis as last

In an address delivered belore a conclave of technicians, under the auspices
of the Society of Chemical [ndiifli j. as reported in the-Weekly KoMcr and

Millions For Radio
A Popular Innovation Throughout
Rural Districts of Canada
Public .interest in radio broadcasting,
and the consequent 'demand for apparatus, has created a new industry
iu Canada, for a report recently issued by the Dominion bureau of statistics shows, that $5,614,700 was spent
in Canada -during 1921 on radio sets
.and parts. Of this.amount $3,201,103
was expended on sets and parts produced iii the Dominion and'?2,413.687
for similar equipment imported from
the United Slates. Radio licenses
were issUed by the Canadian Government during,the 12 months ending
March 31, 1925, to 91.90S persons. Ontario leads all provinces with a total
of ll>8t7 and Quebec wasMiext with'
18,211. Registrations "in the, other
ureas were as follows: Saskatchewan,
9,303; Manitoba, G.553; British Columbia, 6,409; Alberta, 5,843; Nova
Scotia, 2,772; New Brunswick, 1,210;
Prince Edward Cpland, 163; Yukon, 12;
Northwest Territories, 5.-' Licensed
broadcasting stations in the' Dominiou
numbered 51 at the end of the year.
tu Canada J3 "plants, all located in
'Ontario and Quebec, reported a pro-
duclion of radio sots or parts. -The
radio is proving a tremendously popular innovation throughout the rural
districts of Canada. U> helping to
solve one of the chief problems linked
with Miecesslul colonization, lor -the

Most of us, al one time or another,
have experienced the sensation of being stared at, and have turned to discover- the identity of the. persistent

be a real force emanating froni the
human eye���a power sufficient to make
ferocious animals cringe . before - the

that two persons cannot look into each

Mr. Andrews, leader of tiie expedition,
disclosed at Pekin.
That these primitive men knew of

"Camping jn Canada" and "Canoeing

studies in bliick aiid while only, bur
..tlie quiet dignity and good taste displayed carry an irresistible appeal, and
are evidence of the ability of those
who conceived and executed' these attractive booklets. The booklets constitute.an invitation to see Canada, they
set forth in an impelling and rehdable
way the advantages whicli Canada enjoys and the .inducement's she has to
offer both her own people .'and.'visitors
from other lands in the way oi' camp

can road litem without feeling the call
of the wild and the urge for the great
open spaces, where communion with
nature is undisturbed, -the sounds of

delightful hostesses, when they
entertained at a very pretty miscellaneous shower in honor of
Miss Nita Richter on Saturdav,
August 29th. The Farmers Hall-

the reception. The guests were
met by the hostesses, who
escorted them to the hall, which
was prettily decorated with quantities of lovely asters, and purple
lilac, the latter being most unusual for this time of the year,
filled the room with fragrance.
The bride-to-be was presented
with a large basket receptacle,
decorated with beautiful pink
bridal roses and foliage. It was
placed on a w.agon, tastefully
draped with white crepe, aud
drawn by two lovely little children, Catherine Stewart and
Evelyn Hawks, who were pretiily
dressed to represent a bride and
her maid of honour. They who
were very daintly dressed, did
their part splendidly. On coming in, the little bride tossed a
boquet;- composed of white asters
and ferns, to the bride-elect, who
caught it and "smilingly acknowledged the bofior bestowed upon
her. Mor'e than one hundred
were present from different parts
of the Valley.

'The Sea Hawk"
Sabatlui's brilliant novel, "The
Sea Hawk," one of the three best
Sellers of 1923 and regarded as a
most spirited narrative than even
'.^gepranionchc," will be the feature
at the Greenwood Theatre on
Friday and Saturday, Sept 4th and
5th. '  x   [���
In book form "The Sea Hawk"
has beeu regarded as a modern
gem and in relating the story pic-
torially Mr. Lloyd has enhanced
its value. To transfer the big
drama to the screen it has been
necessary to build an entire Algerian city.with its quaint slave market, winding street?, mysterious
courtp, four gigantic ships of the
Sixteenth Century design and to
use more than 1000 people actively
iu the several big sea'battles.
"The Sea Hawk" is the crowning achievement/of a season of
brilliant screen drama?, a play
that registers its magnitude in
every scene and with such forcf
that it is not likely that local
screeu followers will cease to talk
about ife yury soon. ~
