District Hospital
May 14th, 1926, promises to be a red-
letter day for Greenwood and the'surrounding-districts including' Midway,
Kettle Valley, Rock Creek, Beaverdell,
Bridesville ancl points east between
Greenwood and Grqnd Forks. In September, 1924, a movement was initiated
for the establishment of a small hospital
in Greenwood to serve the districts
above mentioned. The venture received
unbounded support from *��� all the communities and lias proved a boon to the
sick aud suffering." Iii the spring-of
1925 it was realized by the directors of
the hospital that the present quarters
were inadequate to meet the requirements'of the district audit was decided
to .obtain costs of an addition to'the
building and re-modelling- of the interior. vThe Board (which then includeclthe
late P. F. Ketchum) met several times
to consider the project and finally submitted plans andcosts to the Provincial
Inspector of Hospitals but which same
did not meet with his approval. Attention was then '-turned to the Armstrong Hotel which older inhabitants
will- remember being considered the
best appointed hotel between Winnipeg
and the Coast. Permission was' obtained from the'bondholders through the
city trustee to turn this building and
adjacent lots over to the-hospital board
if the necessary funds for alterations
could be'raised in a proportionate
amotint to the value of the building.-
Proposals were laid. before the : Provincial Secretary's Department last
August and a * percentage of the cost
was promised in accordance with the
regulations affecting Government aid
in the building of new hospitals. Plans,
and specifications were prepared for .the
remodelling of-the ground floor of the
Armstrong Hotel, part of the second
floor, rearrangement of the heating
plant, roof repairs, new plumbing and
new electric wiring;
, E. A:McDougall was the. successful
tenderer for all-the work with the ex-,
ceptiqn of the electrical end which has
been [done gratis, in his spare time, by
Mr. A. Legault who is a member of
Board. _._��� The work ; commenced last
'November and is uow. completed.
Scrubbing and cleaning parties; are
now the order of the.day, many citizens
volunteering their time and work and
it is expected that- next week will: see
the transfer from the. old hospital to
the new piace. Stead)' and industrious
work has been performed by the Ladies
Hospital Auxiliarj' for the past sixteen
months in aiding, the Board arid hos-
pitalstaff and in connection with'.the
new place they have uiidertakenvthe
furuishing.aud fixing of jthe.;xurjta-in��>.
linen and in conjunction with the Girls
Club hare relegated to themselves the
task of furnishing the staff quarters.
��� Through the kindly thought of Mr, J.
E. Thompson, an old-time resident of
Greenwood. and Phoenix and now the
Vice-President of the Restmore Manufacturing Company of Vancouver, his
company is completely furnishing one
of the private wards and the Board
feels that this will be an incentive to
some of the other old friends, now on
the outside, tev contribute a quota to the
new institution. The Masonic'. order
desires a room assigned to their name
and if is more than ^ikely that there
will be either, a Beaverdell or "Wallace
Mountain ward. Particulars of fur--
nishings and articles still -needed can
tBawtinheimer, Dr. Francis or the president of the Board, Mr. TvvM. Gulley.
- Accommodation has been made for
18 beds and other rooms consist of a
well-appointed.vkitchen, drying room,
linen room, medicine and drug room,
nursery, matroii's office, medical superintendent's office and dentist office
each with separate,,entrance, operating
room, X-ray room, wash-up room, two
bath- rooms, two lavatories, two storerooms, basement store-room, basement
furnace,,,'yand water heater,- nurse's
quarters on second floor with three
spare rooms on the same floor.
A considerable sum has been raised
jluring the..' past }rear by . means of
dances, concerts, hockey games and
sale of refreshments at various gatherings and generous individual contributions of money and supplies have helped to- encourage the Board'in their
difficult task.
It is hoped to raise another thousand
dollars by May 14th and" Mr. C. King,
the secretai^ will acknowledge donations. This appeal for funds will not
be in vain as Greenwood and "district
has a record for generosity that is not J
surpassed iu any section of Canada, j
The yeader lias only to. cast, his or her
thoughts back to the appeals made between 1914 and 1918 and once again
that noble response for nfcnetary help
and voluntary labour will be made in
support of,of an institution for the relief of the suffering. Therefore, Friday, May 14th, will be a day set aside
as'a memorable occasion for the ceremonial opening of the new Greenwood
and District Hospital. *!
The Hon ..William Sloan, as head of
theProvincial Government Department
directing hospitals affairs of .the province, is being asked to perform the
opening ceremony and it is hoped ;to
see ��� him supported by the Hon. Dr.
MacLean and also several prominent
businessmen from the coast together
with representatives of various organizations of the district. Further details
of the opening will be forthcoming but
tentative plans are for a reception in
the afternoon and a dance in the evening. Refreshments in the afternoon
will be served by the.. Greeuwpod Hospital Auxiliary and.in the evening by
the ladies of the outside districts. Committees are being assigned to the various duties that day will call for and G.
S.; Walters in charge will be glad- to
hear from anyone interested. Members
of the Board representing the neighboring districts and who will be glad
to hear from anyone are: Mrs. H.
Pannell, Midway;. Major frray, Kettle

Mineral Wealtli
Canada appears to bo on tlio ore of a ������-very marked- development of! tho
natural resources in minerals which it is well known lite Dominion has in
abundance hut Ilia development of which have, Tor a variety ol' reasons, been
neglected. In Uiis new era of activity in making Hi esc resources available
for use, every section of the. Dominion will, .apparently, liave a .part, although
���tlio most noticeable activity- will prevail in Quebec, Ontario'and" Manitoba..
In Quebec, one of the largest, schemes of liydro-oleclrical development in
fhe world is to be curried out on ihe Saguenay River by United States capitalists, it is predicted lhat ultimately this'development will rival lhe huge undertakings of the Ontario Hyd.ro-Electric Commission at Niagara,, creating
aiditional hundreds of thousands of horsepower, A huge aluminum jnaiiu-
iiicturing plant is lo be erected,;witli tlie result that an entirely new city will
���arise in the ancient province. ��� ���
During tlie past year or two Ontario- has been steadily forging to Lhe
'!ronl as one of the World's greatest gold producers, and 1925 proved to be a
���record year in this respect. Now with the rash ..into the newly discovered Red
Lake district, and a great awakening of interest In the mineral resources of
���'the province, aud increased prospecting, "tlie probabilities of a further substantial increase-iu-production and of the ascertained'mineral wealth of the
.province are exceedingly briglit.-.
Some of the moat encouraging features of the situation are, however, in
'Manitoba.     At long last, a large sum oC money"is available for'developmeut
���of the famous Flin Flon area.     There is nt immediate prospect a $12,000,001!.
: investment of a mining property witli nearly 3200,000,000 of gold, zinc ana
copper iu sight, including tlie establishment ol'n smelter, thus making pos-
��� sible the development of other mines In the same district, many of which are
... said t.o outrival the Flin Flon in richness of: ore. The Government and Legislature of Manitoba are co-operating ia the nia.Uei of providing necessary railway facilities through the construction of a new line from the Hudson Bay
���.Railway to the Flin Flon mine.    A Bill to Incorporate the railway has already
��� passed second reading in the Legislature.
In both Alberta and Saskatchewan Increased interest Is bbing taken in
'the discovery and development of promising oil-bearing properties, and while
'������many of these are still of unknown value, geologists iire convinced; that oil"
will ultimately be found In botli provinces In large and paying quantities.
'.Furthermore, it is absolutely certain that to a greater extent than ever before
the huge coal deposits,in these two provinces will bc utilized to meet Canadian demands and make the Dominion less deisendem "than":'* formerly on
-foreign fuel supplies.   """ "*,..'
These developments are all highly gratifying from a national standpoint.
As has been urged repeatedly in this column, it Is only througli the develop-
'.xnent of its nautral resources that Canada can prosper, secure much needed
..population, provide Increased traflic for its large railway mileage, and 'ultimately .pay off ils lieavy war debt. -.Every sound'scheme of development.is
'to be welcomed and encouraged. . -
At the-same time a note of warning io the general public is in order.
Gold and other mineral discoveries have in* them an' element of romance, tliey'
capture tho imagination of people, and aroiiife gr-ea-t enthusiasms. Men without any scruples take advantage of the resulting excitement, organize pa per
companies, issue glowing statements and prospectus, promising to make all
"Who invest/rich overnight. . They never tell of tlie many-who have invested
and lost, but recite the stories of the few -who liave made fortunes out of: a
paltry sum.
This is a time, therefore, .for people to' be on. their guard against tlie
smooth tongued- salesmen of mining stocks and options. TJnquestionably
thereare good and sound investments to be made, bul before'risking any
money people should make tbe most careful inquiry Into,: the merits of the
proposition submitted to them and investlga-te it fully. There, are avenues
open through wliich responsible reports can be obtained, and advantage
should be taken of these before any money Is paid over, or any undertakings
signed. As a rule, any proved mineral property can obtain the capital desired for its development; it ls tlie wiLd-catter who through sensational adver-,
tisements goes out to catch the unwary and-gulllble.-ofCerlng one dollar stock
be demanded. The strong probability is that'It Is not worth five cents, or
anything. ' c ,W
Canadians should wholeheartedly-welcome and encourage all legitimate
prospecting aud development of the Dominion's mineral wealth, but, not only
' for their own sake as individuals, but for ttie good name and sound progress
of Canada itself, should frown down upon and have absolutely nothing what;
ever to do with the professional mine wild-catter who knows littlo about mining or minerals, and whose operations serve to''"under mine" confidence In
Canada aud retard its development ancl progress.

Famous Ace Plans To Compete For

For the sharp, piercing pain of Lumbago, and the tormenting aches- of
Rheumatism, no liniment is so efficient, so autck to bring comfort ahd
relief as good old"Nervitin.e." This
wonderful liniment penetrates through
the tissues very quickly, sinks at once
to. the core of the pain, draws the
blood from the congested, urea, and
thereby relieves "the pain in a short
time. Those who suffer from stiff
joints, swellings and Rheumatic conditions should use Nerviline, the King
of Pain destroyers. Get Nerviline today, .35c, at all dealers.
Coal Production Increased
Total coal production for 1925 in Alberta was 5,883,394 tons, an increase
of 679,000 tons over 1924, according to
the report of* the provincial mines
branch. The report also shows that

In a survey of the 36-year period
during which one of the leading Canadian financial companies has been in
business,..-' impressive testimony is
found regarding the development of
Canada!s resources, the growth .of her
weallh and the,advance in her general
prosperity. ^In. 18S9 sayings deposits
in Canadian banks were approximately $134,000,000; in ,1900 slightly under
$200,000,000, and in. 1925 over $1,300,-
000,000. During the period froni 1914
to 19.19 Canadians invested also in Dominion Government securities approximately $1,900,000,000,;" iii addition to
these savings -and investments in government bonds a huge total is owned
by Canadians^of Provincial Government and municipal securities arid securities of other corporations, these
being outside of moneys employed In
their own firms or companies.

Oppose Attempt To
Scale Mount Everest
Priests of Tibet Have Closed Road to
���   All Expeditions
According to a recent dispatch from
London, the Dalai Lama of Tibet has
finally closed Mount Everest agaiust
further attempts to gain its peak, the
highest point on the world's surface.
Tbis means that Tibetan ruling authorities have reverted to thcir older
policy of exclusion. It had been temporarily abandoned when sanction waa
given for the previous Uritish expeditious, permission being granted after
friendly pressure had beeu brought to
bear by the Indian Government, and
that recourse would no doubt liave
been again made had it been desired^
But Captain J. 11. L. Noel, the British
army officer, who acted as official
photographer to tho expeditions ot
1922 and 1924 ,is frankly skeptical"oa
the point,     In his report he states:.
Tho priests who govern that part of
Tibet arc now definitely opposed to
expeditions up the mountain. They
don't like the loss of life that so often
occurs, and thoy cannot understand
why we want to reach the top. Net-
tber the sporting, spirit nor the curiosity of geologists, botantists aud zoologists is comprehensible to them.
They think that we have some ulterior
motive wliich we will not disclose. A
hunt for treasure, for example.     -   ���

of the blood and leaves the system an
easy prey to other serious troubles.
This Is' the time when the convalescent from influenza should build,, up
the blood with a reliable blood-making
tonic such as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
When the blood 'regains its rich red

function naturally, and the dangerous,
depressing after-effects of" influenza
disappear. Proof of the undoubted

and would require another seven years
to complete. __ ^
"Already the necessary piers and
railways .arc in operation," he said,

London Turns To
Canadian Goods
Empire Shopping Weeks Have Educated    Consumers-'" in    Value    of
Empire Products
Nine English municipalities have
held imperial shopping-weeks during
the past months. "'Others followed
suit during April, while London will
hold its week in May":
Many of the big London depart-"
ment stores have held, or will hold,
empire shopping weeks of their
own, and practically all of them have
now established special sections for
empire goods. Canadian products
alone take up seven pages of the provision catalogue issued, by one largo
London firm. - The latest made-in-
. Canada comestible lo made its appearance on the London market is blueberry jam, wliich /is believed to -be un-,
known ln Canada itself. It is made
here from blueberry, pulp* imported
W       from Quebec.
Over    LO.000    people  have already
visited    "Brilish    Empire  Exhibition

The Imperial institute, London, towards the maintenance of which the
Canadian Govei-mnent makes a contribution, is being re-organized that it
may help perpetuate the Empire exhl-
��� bilion as a means- of educating the
British public in regard to natural resources and, industrial development in
overseas parts of the empire. A. W.
Tolmie, Canadian exhibition director,
is helping in this work.
��� All these factors are considerably
improving lho position ,of Canadian

be gauged by the success of the efforts
of the Women's Unionist organization
to encourage the stocking of empire
products by local grocers. The position Is much better^they report, than
even six months ago, and empire foods
are on sale even iu small towns.. This
"is partly due to the fact that the packing.and quality of empire prouuee has
greatly improved in the past two years.

���Versa. The plan adopted by the

model- was, floated in a tank 400 feet-
long land 20 feet wide, and was then
drawn throughthe water at a rate proportionate to-the 'designed speed of
the ship. Intricate and delicate
recording instruments noted the resistance of the water, aud slight alterations in the shape Of the wax model
were made until the waier resistance
was as small as possible. Iu a' recent case 357 experiments were necessary before the- ideal shape was given
to the hull and the. best size found for

Two "^expensive Brooches Valued
More Than Crown Jewels
Mile. Helene Vacaresco, of Paris,
with whom Queen Alexandra maintained a warm -friendship, has given
to the Gaulois some charming anecdotes of the late- Queen's coronation.
Beneath her'coronation robes Her Majesty insisted on wearing throughout
the whole magnificent rites two insignificant littlo brooches, which lay next
her heart. One of them; she explained, had been given to lielf-by her dead,
son, the Duke of Clarence; lhe other
a little unknown girl had thrown into
her lap as she passed In her carriage."
fr. was probably the' only article of
'jewelry the poor child possessed," the"
Queen remarked, "and I treasure the
gift because it is the emblem of love
all England has for me, and of my affection tor her. > That is why I shall
carry these two brooches to Westminster under my coronation robes. The
crown and fhe rest of the jewels .will
go back into their cases, but these two
poor little treasures will always l.(e
next to my heart." ~}ler Majesty,

never to mention this incident during'

Spanish Contractor , ,
Makes Rich Discovery
Finds Ironbound Trunk Said to Con-
"tain Pirate's Treasure
A discovery with all the smacks of
old-fashioned romance, has been made
at the littlj Galician village of Mou-
riera, near Llie Uay-of PonleVedra.
A contractor named Manuel Pouta!
was excavating the foundations of a
new house when one of the workmen
slrticlc a hard, metallic object with his
pick. It turned oui to be a linen
iron trunk, bound with heavy hoop:,
and is stated lo contain n rich treasure. The contractor has taken possession of, it pending the decision of
the authorities.
It is supposed to ,bo ono of the
Irunks smuggled ashore at Ponte-
vodra ln April, J82S, by the famous
Galician pirate, Benito Soto, who waa
hanged a few .years' later at Gibraltar
along with a number of other, desperadoes. s
According to oflicial-'data published
in 1SD2 by a ship captain named.La-
zanga, Ben ho Soto, ha.li,.left Brazil
towards the end-of 1S27 iu a briga'n-
tine which .'anded him near Ponte-
vedra. Tlie pirate had amongst his
belongings two heavy trunks containing the gold and prinicpal object of value of which - he. .had ; robbed his viclinis,
The trunks were never more heard
of, and it is now presumed that they
were burled at Mou'reira, near a
-house wliich Soto had acquired, and
jvhere' he sometimes passed a few
weeks with his uncle.
Benito Soto apparently only remained ashore during the time the
treasure was being buried,-and was
not beard of again in Galicia. His
next adventure was a'fight with some
Salee pirates of Mogador, after which"
he fell into the hands of a British
sloop wliich conveyed ltim and his
crew to Gibraltar. He evidently had
no opportunity lo convey to his friends
the whereabouts of the buried treasure.     His secret died wlthlilih.

Teaching Is Good Training
Many of .Canada's Prominent Men
Have Taught School
The new-premier of Saskatchewan
was.for many years a school teacher.
The new premier of Alberta was for
a few years a school teacher. Trie
premier of Manitoba'was a high school
teacher. ,An'examination of the lists
will show that most of the men wrio
have reached successful positions at
one' .time��� iri their life taught school.
Tliere is something in the "'honorable
profession which' influences i'or good
the members' of the profession, The
successful teacher "must discipline and
be disciplined. He must be tactful
and lie must be thorough. The best
training for a public man in Canada
is a few years as a school teacher.���

Clean-Up Days
APRIL 27tli and 28th
Slow but steady improvement is being made by the City of Greenwood
each year in the matter of cleaning up
and everyone hopes that this spirit of
progress will be-maintained.
Clean back yards, vacant lots and'
alleyways should be a source of pride
to its inhabitants. This tends to
cleanliness and would encourage people
to beautify thcir lioni es and surroundings and would prove to the outsider
who visits here that Greenwood lias
as much civic pride as any other town
on the continent.
Save The Forests
'Fifty years ago the forests of British
Columbia contained 1000 billion feet
of merchantable timber. Now they
contain 350 billion1 feet. What has
become of the 650 billion remainder,
two-thirds of the priceless heritage of
this province in its timber resources?
The answer is that 600 billion feet
have gone into forest fires, and 50
billion feet to the-loggers and sawyers
of our principal industiy.
This is the striking text of that
sermon which this week's observance
of Save-the-Forcst Week" is designed to preach "to tha people of
-British Columbia. It is more than a
text; it is a whole sermon in itself.
"Save-the-Forest Week" has been"
simultaneously proclaimed by the
Governor-General of Canada and the
President of the United States. If the
people of the two countries could all
be seized of the import of these
astounding statistics of forest destruction in this province, the purposes of
the proclamations would have been
sufficiently served, ���Vancouver Province.

Carelessness  Destroys
3,000,000 acres annually
of Canadian Forest
Loss of standing: timber by fire continues
to be appalling. , On the average, over
3,500 million board feet are destroyed
annually. The forests of Canada are being
depleted at a rate they cannot possibly withstand; more than half or this-depletion; is'
due to fire, insects and decay. The future
of the forest industry is;just as dependent
on the seedling trees and young growth as
the pulp and paper and lumber mills, and
industry generally, are dependent on mature
timber���boih must be saved- from the
ravages of fire. ,

In addition to the shelter afforded by
the forest to the farmer and his stock, "settlers in forested regions are vitally dependent
on the woods for winter employment. Care
with fire in land-clearing operations is all;
essential���burned timber pays no wages.
, Canada has the finest inland fishing in -
the.worid; but these splendid food and game
fish require clean, cold water in the streams
to ensure prolific reproduction.   Forest fires
are inimical to fish life;
Game animals attract foreign tourists
and induce Canadians to seek pleasure, health
and-adventure in the great outdoors. These
animals are distinctly a forest resource-
utterly dependent on it for protection and
food. Forest fires are most destructive of
such wild life. *,   ���;       " ,

yourself these Questions:
' 1.   Is it as comfortable and smart in appearance       ' X
as the new Chevrolet? :,;������'.
2. Does it boast of such advanced-features as dry
