A letter was recently received by a
local party from John Shannon. Jack
was a familiar figure ori the .streets, of
Greenwood a year ago so -his many
friends may be interested in a few remarks concerning him. He was
married^ in Vancouver , at Christmas
time, then.went to Miami, Florida,
where he is now located in charge of
a retail business. By way of recreation
he picks cocoanuts, grape fruit, etc.
A year ago Miami had a population
of 30,000, this, has" now increased to
200,000. During the boom money
ran like water. One road house on
New Year's "eve took in $65,000.
These conditions have changed and
business is getting? back to normal.
Mr. Shannon wishes to be remembered to all his friends in Greenwood.

;England Makes Best Lenses
Knowledge Gained During War Is Put
To Good Use
The opening or the optical convention the other day at the Imperial College of Science of Technology, South

'fi.ca.nce. People will-now he able to
sec for themselvs the strides lhat have
been made in optics since the last
opticalconvention was held In 1912.
It is satisfactory to know that England has. now ousted Germany as the
maker of the finest lenses and has re.-
gained her position of supremacy' in
the constructipn-of optical instruments
in general which she was in danger of
losing-before the war. For the'ywar,
of necessity, taught us much, forcing
us to perfect such, things as range-'
lindens, periscopes and field glasses,
and. that hard-won knowledge has
proved of immense value in .enabling
British optical manufacturers to take
and retain the front place.'
Optics undoubtedly have played an
������enormous part hi the advancement of
the modern world.     When we think
of all the wonders revealed by the
telescope and all the essential "knowledge gained from' the microscope,
when we. 'consider how widely the

that the vital importance of optics
cannot be over-stated.

Rotor   Ship   Completed   Experimental
Journey of 6,000 Miles
When a strange craft, neither sailing nor motor ship, hut a combination

Flying the flag of the new German
Republic, she came up the harbor on
windpower alone at a nine-knot clip,
while tugs and shipping looted and
ferry boat passengers stared.
The GOO-lon ship, with its two huge
rotor towers revolving at an average of 85 revolutions a minute, was
carrying a cargo of building stone.
Jl completed an experimental trip of
C.200 miles in 38 days.
Anton Flettner, inventor of lho
rotor, met the ship at quarantine, expressing satisfaction at the success ot
the rotor principle. Ao considerable
saving in Diesel oil is practical evidence, he said.
Tho rotor whicli act in place of sails
and have no connection with the propeller, were In operation about 70 por
cent, of the voyage, frequently unassisted by the six-cylinder 250 horsepower main Diesel engine.
One of the. best. (Lays during the
voyage the ship made 212 miles. The
average��was 3GS. Once in rough
weather when the main engine was
shut down for repairs the Baden-

Inhabitants of A'rab'City
The Minor Prophet Jonah who has
been the centre of much theological
discussion, is supposed 1o be buried at
Mosul and his traditional tomb still
stands on lho opposite bank of the'
Tigris. Mosul is an ancient Arab city,
buill not o:i the actual site, as commonly stalrl, -hut ou some outlying
suburb of Scriptural Nineveh. It was
once a vary ptosperous'^place, famous
for the manufacture of muslins, which
probably got their name from this
city; but commercial ruin; begun by
the rise of Bushire, culminated in the
opening oC the Suez Canal. Mosul
possesses a population of curiously
mixed religions, whoso theological
views seem broad enough to satisfy
any "Modernist." Christians and
Mohammedans equally venerate ' tlui
two local saints, St. George and Jonah.

2.   Rover and Patsy
Here and There
Fulfilling his promise to James
Walker, Mayor of New York,
Captain Frank Doudera, Svell known
Brooklyn "big game hunter and
-'. sportsman, arrived at the Canadian
Pacific Windsor Station in Montreal
recently froin Northern Ontario with
two live wolves which he captured
on Lake Temiskaming, at the. junction where tlie River KippaHva flows
.into : the lake. The two animals,
named Patsy and Ho-ven, are intended
for the Brooklyn Zoo.
When taken out of their cages in
the baggage rooms at the Windsor
Station, both Patsy and Rover displayed decidedly nervous tendencies.
Patsy is an ash blonde, endowed by
nature with a pearly grey coat of fur,
tinged with red, which glistens a little "in the sun.    Rover seemed to be
, a bit worn in 6J��ats, but his fur, whatever there is of it, is a. bluish, black,
closely resembling a blue fox.  Boxer
was inclined to rove.    When taken
; Into the express yards be buried his
bead in the snow.     After a snow-
eating performance he insisted on
elimlbiiig over the fence via mounds
of snow, but a strong hand at the
leash detained him:*
Patsy turned out to be a mild,
good-natured child who accepted the
'overtures* of her audience with becoming meekness. A pat on the head
from a 'total stranger 'solicited a kind
look from the young lady's large grey
eyes Hvhich peep forth like pretty buttons on old-fashioned shoes.       -
Rover- was not so meek.. At the
same pat on the head from the same
total stranger he snarled bitterly
and would have avenged the indignity
with blood but for the muzzle.
���The wolves'are (only about ten
months old. Rover weighs one hundred pounds and measures about five
feet from the tip of his snow-washed
nose to tbe end of his scraggy tail.
Patsy weighs about eighty-five
pounds and is several inches shorter
than Rover. In addition to. the two
live wolves, the captain bag seven
dead ones.
Doudera claims \ record in shooting the last wolf after a chase which
lasted onfy three hours and forty
minutes. Usually it "lakes several
days to corner a wolf. The animal
takes long, powerful strides arid covers ground at an amazing pace. But
in the present case there had been a
heavy fall of snow and the wodf had
floundered along until Doudera came
within fifteen feet. The animal then
turned, bared"his fangs, let. loose *
series .of''howls ������and-- leaped-.-at his
purser. The captain piiaied the
trigger of his gun and a bullet pierced the wolf's heart and shoulder.
During the expedition the hunter
was aided by Fred Arnott, who operates the Tern-Kip chain of camps.
Captain Doudera brings with him six
thousand- feet of films showing authentic pictures of wolves in their
native haunts. The sportsman re-,
ported .that game was very plentiful
in - tlie-. Lake Temiscamjtag- district
Deer ire to be found within a few
hnndred yards from camp.
With the inauguration of the new
"Redwing" special train service on
the Canadian Pacific Railway line
between ' Boston and Montreal, a
group of prominent Bostoniahs were
invited to Montreal; on ^tlie initial^
trip of the "Redwing" from Boston.
Montrealers went to Boston on the
same special. The "Redwing" cuts
several hours off the old schedule
between the two cities.'
According to the weekly crop report of the Canadian Pacific Railway the spring opening of the 1926
season, after one of the iineBt winters "ever experienced in Western
Canada, finds conditions very favorable. Feed was plentiful and winter
losses less than usual. Prospects
for coming season are fine owing
to good moisture. There, is a live
demand for new machinery.
