Tbis community w'as saddened
during the week-end when it was
learned that Frank Forester
Ketchum had passed away in
Beaverdell on Friday evening,
July 10th. He had not been in
good health for some time and in
a. great effort to combat his
illness he kept on working and
after a busy day, the term might
be  used, "he died in harness."
The funeral was held in
Greenwood on Monday afternoon
Services being conducted by Rev.
E. A. St. G. Smyth in St. Jude's
Church and at the. graveside.
It was very largely attended,
many coming,from Beaverdell and
throughout the district to pay
their last respects .to a departed
friend. Over 30 autos were in
the funeral procession and a
profusion of flowersl^banked the
casket. Interment' took place in
the. Church pf England plot.
The pallbearers were: J. H.
Goodeve, I., Crawford, Jas. Kerr,
G. Iiambly, W.(i J. C. Patterson,
and E. Nordman.
The\late Mr. Ketchum was
born in Norton/Kings County,
New Brunswick, and was about
63 years of age. For a number
of' years he was engaged in a
commercial .business and came
west in company with -the late
K. C. B. Frith about 1898. After
coming, to Greenwood he engaged
in accountancy and^was for a
time secretary of.the Greenwood
Electric Company during the
period the power for lighting
was furnished by steam. When
Beaverdell was laid out he and
the late Waverly A. Keith commenced business there as general
merchants and when a few years
later Mr. Keith died the deceased
acquired his interest and has
since carried on the business and
has also been the postmaster and
de'puty mining recorder. For a
large portion of tbe time very
few people lived in the vicinity
of Beaverdell and little business
was transacted and it seems sad
jurSt af'lh'e time th'e district is
coming into its own, with many
mining properties opening up,
that the deceased should be called
Among his friends and curling
associates he was commonly
called Colonel Ketchum or the'
Mayor of Beaverdell. He was a
most popular fellow and took a
great interest in the advancement
of the c'ountry and encouraged
sport, being oue of the best
curlers in the district receiving
many trophies for his skill at this
game.-, He took.a great interest
in the Greenwood and District
Hospital, and was one of-its-first
" He was a member of Albion
Lodge, A. P. & A. MM o'f St.
John, N: B.
He is survived (we understand)
by sisters, nephews and -nieces,
residing in-New Brunswick and
In his passing the district
looses one of its.most prominent
citizens, a man of sterling integrity and outstanding ability
as a business man.
Mrs. R. .Blundell met with a
very painful accident last Friday evening when she fell down
the -Masonic Hall stairs. She

hospital where she i's doing as
well as can be expected.   .

hospital where'be is doing nicely.

Canadian Trade Prospects
With tlu,- clo.se of the fir.-r six months of 3925. financial antl commercial
-i'li'iile.uioi.s in Canada have been taking ..stock of the business situation
i.*"*.-iigl_ou. the Dominion. Tlio conclusions reached-by them as the result
01' careful surveys is thai, present conditions are better and prospects I'or the
-'iti-ii'dint-- future more promising ihan for some years past. This is es-
jK-elally mie in regard to agriculture, and, as the West has always contended, a betterment in the fanning outlook lia.s a direct benelicial effect on man-
Ui'ieuiriug and all business.
Although actual returns from the farms are probl. uuitical until the crops
ore harvested, and it. i.s never safe to closely estimate yields of grain and field
trope until they aro Anally removed from all vagaries of weather, plant dis-
f as'-s and pests, the fact remains thai at. ihe end of June prospects throughout Canada, and especially in the Western Provinces, were better than for
many years and, in tlie absence of widespread and extremely adverse conditions- before harvest, ihe outlook is for one of tlie best and most profitable
���crops in ten years.
One financial paper in Its annual review at iho end of June states, on the
bayis of reports from all the Provinces*, lhat ihe biggest increase in employment in two years has ialien place, with the result, that, except in the larger
cities where tlie unemployed alwa'y. congregate, there are few idlo men.
JM.inufncturing industries are busier than for years and in Ontario and Quebec real activity prevails with manufacturing near to capacity in several
line.-*, and some plants working overtime.
Record catches of ilsh on both the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards-have
taken place, immigration is increasing, the summer tourist trallic shows every
indication of attaining a new high record, while the export, trade of the Dominion continues to increase both in volume and value month by month.
Xuilding construction is likewise much greater than a year ago. Railway car
loadings are smaller, but this is accounted for in two items, the smaller
-volume of last year's grain crop and reduction in the movement, of coal
resulting from labor troubles at the mines. On the other hand, there is a
-substantial increase in car loadings of manufactured articles and general
������merchandise, while this year's grain crop promises to moro thau offset the
.reduced volume of a year ago.
One -Qf the  significant developments is  the steadily  rising volume and
vahn- ol* Canada's export trade.     For some years now- the Dominion Government has been quietly negotiating trade treaties with other countries.      One
of the latest was with Australia and already British Columbia is looking forward lo and preparing for a big expansion in trade with that sister Dominion,
.Before thi*- article appears iu print, it is expected that the terms of a now
���trade arrangement with the Uritish West .Indies will be announced.      Inasmuch as each and every one of these reciprocal agreenienls provides for the
removal of artificial restrictions" on trade  through.the  lowering of customs'
���duties and the. wiping out of oilier.obstacles- to .the free exchange of commodities,-and ave-frequently.accompanied by the provision of larger and improved facilities'of, communication and" transport,'..ihc .effect cannot be otherwise

How Germany Solves
Housing Problem
Families Allotted Space According To
Number Of Members
They have a speedy method of solving tho housing problem in Germany,
according to au English paper, which
says: ..
"You have here a * flat of eight
rooms; you are three in family. You
will live, in future, in throe rooms.
Another family. will move in next
week to occupy the other five rooms.
Good morning."
What would a British (or Canadian)
householder say If an oflicial said such
a thing to him, and if he knew thnt he
could neither protest nor refuse?
- Yet that Is what happens ln Berlin
every day. Next time wo are inclined to grumble at hard conditions iu
our own country, it may help us to bo
more contented it* we realize what the
Germans  put up  with.
Rents are. adjusted according lo tho
number of rooms occupied in a house
or Hat. Thus, the family using Ave
rooms in an eight-roomed house���with
the original tenant inhabiting the
other throe . rooms���will pay five-
eighths of tho rental.
Danger  Signals  That  Everyone
Should Take Seriously.
Pain is one of Nature's warnings
that something is wrong, with the
body. Indigestion, for instance, is
characterized by pains in the stomach,
and often about the heart; rheumatism by sharp pains in the limbs and
joints; headaches are a sign that the
nerves or stomach are out of order.
In some ailments, such as anaemia,
pain ls njt so prominent." In this
case Nature's warning take, the form
of pallor, breathtessness after slight
exertion, palpitation of the. heart, and
loss of appetite. Whatever form
these warnings take, wise people will
not ignore the" fact that many diseases
havo. their origin in poor blood, ann
that when the blood is enriched the
trouble, disappears. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills are most helpful, In such
cases because they purify and build
iip the blood to its normal strength, tn
this way il tones up the. nerves, restores the appetite and gives perfect
health. Miss Hazel Rerndt. of Arn-
prior, Ont.,, has proved the great value
of this medicine and nays:���"I am a

Germany's Obituary
For Earl of Ypres
Reliable and  Hontrable Soldier Saya
General von Kuhl   '
General voir Kuhl, Germany's leading authority on what is known here
as "scientific militarism," in writing a
long obituary notlce^on the Earl of
Ypres in fthe Deutsche Allgemeine
Zeitung, quotes'freely and sympathetically from both Colonel- Repington
and Lord Ypres' own memoirs. In
summing up, he writes:,
"The picture which history has to
show of him is that of a reliable and
honorable soldier, who always did
honor to England's name,
he appeared on the field
and whose adversaries are bound to
do him honor, too. But he was not a
great military leader, for, whenever
fate "confronted him with such tasks
he showed that the sacred lire did not
burn within him, and that daring and
boldness were not his strongest
points."���-Berlin' Correspondent of
London Observer.        .

The Text Explained and Illumined
1. A cripplo made to walk, verses
8-10.���There being no synagogue at
Lyslra, Paul began his preaching in
the open air. Near him was a man
crippled from birth; probably like the
cripple whom Peter restored, he sat
begging in his accustomed place. Paul
noticed the cripple's eager attention in
his words, and believing that the man
had faith to be made whole, he said
to him, "Stand upright on thy feet."
Another manuscript (the Codex Beza?)
reads, "In tho name of Jesus Christ
I bid thee rise ancl walk." This was
just what the man had never been
able to do. Compare. Christ's words
to the man with'the palsied arm���
"Stretch forth thy hand"; the impossible happened ln both cases; the
cripple leaped up and walked.
IL The people seek to worship Paul
and Barnabas, verses 11-13.���Seeing
the cripple, walking, the people were
so amazed tliat they cried out in the
speech of their province (Lyeaonia),
"The gods are come down "lo us .in
the likeness of men." Egyptian.?
and Greeks believed that- tho gods
often assumed human bodies-- and
visited the cari.li to reward the-good
and punish the. evil. . Homer, Vergil
and Ovid record many such visits.
Cowper translates a passage from
.Homer "thus:���-'.

Increase In
Public Debts
"Growth of Municipalities and Cities
Reason \For EKpansion
Aa a consequence ot the expanding
indebtedness of "the municipalities
and provinces of tlie Dominion, more
than one hundred million dollars was
added to the-grand total of ledoral.
municipal and provincial debts last
year., The-increase for the year previous was approximately $72,000,000.
la tho case of the fedeial debt, a marginal reduction was effected. Thc
increase in piorincial indebtedness
was only aboul 5;.;.,000,000 so that the
.responsibility for tho rise must be
placed largely upon the shoulders ot
the municipalities, whose new issues
totalled ?91,697,:. 76.
Thai ihe municipalities of Canada
should have added ho extensively to
their .indeb-.'.-dness af a time when
every effort is being made lo economize, and to u'dueo'tlit* uuwieldly
burden of taxes, seems at'first thought
to'reprt'seitt.a gi'oss misinterpretation
of the public will. But there" were
substantial reasons why un increase
Js mon�� to be expected in the case.of
tho inuni.-ipaJliies than of lhe federal
and provincial administrations. While
tho cofts of government are expanding
gradually, a-id more diversified service
is required, the *��� country's actual
growth is r.-.-pif-sented by tiie growtn
in size of the cities and municipalities
Too rigid economy in the case of the
hitter means straugulation. Furthermore a lurg_> number of municipalities
throughout the couutry are undertaking public- service projects, and their
indebtedness is thus enlarged. The
bu'k of the increase can be' accounted
for hy a relatively small group of tno
larger citler-i.���Financial Post.   -

said. Marshal. Foch.. "In spite of t,he
promise of his name, he spoke French
badly \-_nd ���understood less. This Is
the way we managed to understand
each other."      ���
.Marshal Foch then cut off a piece
of paper about live by four inches
from a sheet of, foolscap.
"It was a piece of-paper no'bigjrcr
than this which held the whole plan
of the batfle of Ypres," he said. "I
wrote ou if: 'First, here are' the
troops, letjliein slay; second, let them
slick-there, lot tlieui hang on, no matter what happens.'

"French read it. -We.-looked at

he was going to exclaim that it was
impossible-.- Not at all. He said
"In that moment, perhaps, the fate
of the world, certainly that of" England, was decided. My old war comrade showed confidence. lie turned
over the paper and wrote on the back.

More than half the disease and sickness afflicting civilization and overcrowding our hospitals might easily
be prevented if men and women would,
on their own account, 'exercise something approaching the knowledge and
skill wliich they lavish upon their cars
and domestic animals. They study
aud discuss with each other the pros,
and cons of thp minutest,detail connected with obtaining maximum eiliciency of tho machines they ride in,
Avhlle countless volumes from tho pens
of eminent authorities are pored over
iu exhaustive search for the best procurable information regarding correct
feeding and care of horses, cattle,
poultry, dogs und cats.

tissues of healthy plants and the human body can only be maintained in
health by a requislto supply of all
these essential elements which, in
variety and perfection, are. bountifully
provided by Nature.
The diseases or civilization have
increased to an alarming extent by the

Gift That Is Invaluable
People Giving Blood to Hospitals Have
Saved Many'Lives
The -British Government has con-,
ferred a decoration upon a member
of an ambulance'- corps: . During the
last five years he has on'''44 occasions
given a pint of his blood to patients'
iri a London hospital who wero in a
critical condition. He Is quite a poor
man, has never sought: a penny reward,
and says he did it "to help the hospital.'*
Tliere are pqople who cvow they
"would give their" life-blood" for" one
cause or another.-; Here is a man
who Is literally doing it. We help
our hospitals with linen, canucd fruit
aud sometimes with money. How
many "ever think of offering their
blood? It is just as useful in a hospital as any other gift. Large institutions have their lists of regular contributors of blood, tested and tabulated, healthy people .ready to answer a
sudden call. Any hospital would appreciate an offer of .that kind. It
means a great deal- more than a
cheque; "it may mean the saving of.
somebody's life, and money alone cannot do that.

already amount to $422,000. This
amount is larger than the total for
any year, except last year when the

months were $452,489. The estimate
for the present year is half a million.
The mines and quarries of the
Province of Quebec produced to tho
value of $18,952,890 during 1924,
according to the final report issued

That the Province of Quebec
