Death of Mrs. F. Sturtridge
The citizens of Greenwood were
shocked to hear of the death of Mrs.;l
Matilda Sturtridge which took place
some time- Tuesday night. The late
Mrs. Sturtridge had lived with her
husband on a ranch up Boundary
Creek for a great number of years.
She had not been in good health for
some days prior to her. demise.
���" The deceased was born in Norway
in May 1860 and at the age of 12 years .
emigrated to New Zealand. In 1889
she married Fred Sturtridge at Napier, ��
Ck Bay, New Zealand. After leaving
that place they came to the States
residing for a time in California, Colorado, Montana and Idaho, before settling on the Canadian prairie. - Their
next move was to the Slocan district
where they bought a farm on Lemon
Creek. Later they sold then property ~
and came to Greenwood and located on
Boundary Creek:-' '
-Mrs. Sturtridge is survived by her
husbaifti and, has the sympathy of all

AAr inter Traffic
Smow ou the city streets should mean to.all automobile drivers ai least
one thing, says a daily newspaper,���a driving speed of at least (on miles an
hour less than summer speed. And .this word of advice to city motorists may
well be passed on tp motorists on country roads.
Snow ia a tricky surface. It provides good traction on paved streets and
'hard roads when a car Is forging ahead, but no traction at all when the bi-akos
are suddenly applied. In other words, a car can be driven easily on It, hut can
' bo stopped only wiih diiliculty.
It is disconcerting to drive up lo a street or road intersection at what, in
the summer months would.he-a moderate speed, and, finding need of applying
the brakes, feel the car sliding helplessly onward, or suddenly skidding to 'he
side. It is disconcerting always, aud il ls frequently dangerous as well.
Experienced and careful drivers have various means of checking this
sliding aud swaying, but thoy know thero is only ono sure method, ono real
safety- device���to drive sioAvly, arid particularly so when near road intersections, curves, culverts, bridges,-passing oilier cars, etc. Only so can a car
o'u slippery roads be kept sufficiently under control i'or safely.
Pedestrians, too, should take' warning. The practice of standing on thc
road just a foot or so-away while a motor passes is dangerous enough on diy
roads. II ia doubly dangerous after lhe snow comes. If the driver lias need
to' apply his brakes suddenly the car nine, times out of ten will sway to ihe
loft or the right, and tho pedestrian standing too close is likely to be side-
swiped witli unpleasant results.
Winter conditions should, in brief, intensify care in driving and walking.
There is much greater liability to accident witli snow on thc ground.
Cold weather brings another danger which is not so much in evidence in
summer. Iu cold weather motorists arc templed lo start up (heir engines and
allow them to run for a time, to warm up within the closed doors of the garage.
As a natural result the garage fills up with the deadly monoxide gas i'rom the,
exhaust with all tho possibilities for tragedy which such a condition brings
aboul. ���
Another factor whicli necessitates grealer care in winter driving is
created by the fact that touring cars have all thcir curl'eins up while thc
windows of closed cars arc kept shut. It is not possible, therefore, lo signal
with the same ease aud effectiveness to other cars to the rear regarding tht-.
���turn a driver may intend to make..In the winter, therefore, greater attention
should bo paid lo the rear than is necessary during lhe summer months if
accidents are to b'o avoided.

Steamship Company Makes Offer To
Operate a Line Of Vessels
Ths offer of a steamship company
with ollicos in London and Monlrea,-
lo operate a line o'f vessels from Fort
Churchill to England and France, in-
letum for a concession in the Fort
Churchill District, is the latest incident resulting from the prospect of
llie completion of the railway and the
preparation of the port for initial
shipping within lhe next two years.
The Swedish captain, who acts as
spokesman I'or the company in making
llie offer to the Government, claims
lo have had a long experience in sailing tlie northern waters of Europe, going up to Archangel for many years
aud also into the Baltic Sea. Conditions for navigation on those routes,
he says, aro very similar to those on
the Hudson Bay route and he regards a steamship service as an ordinary business proposition.
Tho value of the offer will depend
on the terms, but the offer itself helps
to dispel the idea held by some people
of desperate perils of navigation
which made the route commercially

Trade Fair Of the World
For the fourteenth consecutive year
the British Government announces
lho holding of the British "industries
Fair simultaneously in London and
Birmingham from 20th February to
2nd March, 1928.
The British Industries Fair is uow
recognized as the principal annual
trade fair of the world, and buyers
from every continent flock lo attend
it. An idea of the interest taken in it
can ,be gleaned from the fact 1hat tlie
Government ilsclf issues moro than a
quarter of n million personal invitations to buyers in no less than 94 different coun tries.
Next, year "the Fair will surpass all
its previous records and booking of
space to date has necessitated large
extensions and alterations to -the
buildings of the White Cily ln London, while some completely new exhibition halls havc had to bo built
in Birmingham to' accommodate ^the
increasing numbers o'f exhibitors.
' As has. been the case for several
years past the Canadian Chamber of
Commerce in London, is organizing
considerable participation by Canadian manufacturers.
The exhibits ac the London SPction
of the Fair will consist in lhe main
of 'such lilies as jewellery, watches
and clocks, scientific instruments and
optical goods, pottery and glassware,
leather goods, stationery and sports
goods, fancy goods, clothing and textiles, wireless apparatus, chemists and
druggists sundries, etc.
Full particulars and advance catalogues of the Fair can be obtained
from The British Trade Commissioner, 703, Royal Bank Blclg., Winnipeg,
who will be glad lo issue invitations
on behalf-of the British Government

American Export Tells Of Four Which

. A mysterious seaplane, now "being
built for Italy in Switzerland, which
has 12 engines, room lor 100 pissen-
gers, ancl whichr in time of war, may
j be quickly transformed into a powerful fighting machine, is one of .our
outstanding advances' in European
aviation dining 1927.
Such is the opinion of Major Lester D. Gardner, American aviation expert, who has arrived, in Paris fiom
Rome, where lie was'the official representative of Iho United States department of commerce at tins intornr.iioa-
al aviation congress.
Major Gardner said the other three
notable, achievements were an a^io-
plane that can fly five miles a minute,
a new safety slot for the wings of air
aeroplane, and the_, beginning of ��,
movement lo internationalise the airlines of Europe.
"There is another development whhh
I might have included in the first 3ist
and that is a giant Zeppelin, wliich'I
saw at Friedrichshafen, Germany,"
the major continued.' II. will soon be
completed. In place of gasohne the engines burn a sort ef gas which in turn
fills the bags. This will give it lour"
times the cruising range of any existing typo of airship. Doctor Hugo Eck-

Germany to Los Angeles without a

A well-known German Socialist, Dr.
Olio  FriedJao-ndor,  wlio  took a trip
ihroogh Russia this summer, and was

conditions he found very   bad.   Two
families "biten have to   live   in   one
room, separated meiely by   a   chalk
line.   The misery among the "avoiking
classes has resulted in an   army   of
parentless   and    homeless    children,
who live  by   begging,   stealing,   and
sometimes  by  even  worse  methods.
While the   Soviet   authoritis   spend
gigantic sums of money for propaganda purposes, a generation of criminals
is  springing up,  whose forcible des-
liuctiou is being seriously demanded
oy lho Russian peasauts.    The 'suppression of freedom of opinion is absolute, and for non-Russians unbearable. Intellectual depression lies over
the land. Dr. Friedlaender's opinion is

Little Helps For This Week
Now the God of hope fill you with
all joy and peace in belief ing, that ye
may abound,in hope.���Romans xv. 13.
Ah! yet when all is thought and said.
The heart still overrules the head;
Still what wo hoe we must believe,
And what is given us receive;
Must still believe, for still we hope
That in a world of largo scope,
What here is faithfully begun
Will be completed, not undone.

Sometimes it would seem, in these
days of telephones arid telegrams, * that
the art of letter writing, which was
brought to such perfection in the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
has been almost lost. And yet what
can equal the joy of receiving a long
newsy letter from a friend, a letter
which tells of all the little intimate details, which the one so far away from
the old familiar surroundings is longing to hear?. Such a letter is bringing
both to the writer and to the recipient
far more than may appear on the.sur-
"'face . The very effort which has been
made to find the time .to write of the
little:, homely details calls for loving
and unselfish thoughts and we often
help to break down the. subtle beliefe
of separation which may have unconsciously sprung up in the thoughts
of the one who is away from the scenes
of childhood.
��� The tender home ties are very precious, and something which, in this
workaday world, we cannot afford to
neglect. How many anxious hours and
moments of distress might be spared ii
we would decide positively to be more,
thoughtful in the apparently trifling
things of daily experience. A lettei
to the folks at home, full of little expressions ofs.love and .consideration, is
of untold value and more far-reaching
in its effects than we know.; To the
boy or girl battling with - temptation.
the word in season may prove to be
the turning point of a career. Just the
mere fact that someone has cared
enough about them\to spare\a few
moments from a. busy day to write the
word of cheer will give them fresh
courage to feo forward and prove that
The stiff formal phrases *of the old
letter writers'may occasion us to smile
but do not these old letters ask us to
stop and ponder whether, in confining
��� our communications to telephone calls
and curt notes, which may not be
shutting out, from our experience
something which is, after all, of genuine value in our intercourse with our
fellow man? Anything which is .helping to bring us into closer touch with
ant. If the correspondents are living'
in separate countries the value of letter writing is perhaps increased. This
is because much misunderstanding and
prejudice between "those __ of different
nationalities Vand upbringing may be
broken down thereby, since the small
kindly acts of courtesy and hospitality
are apt be recorded and so a false concept of a nation^ and its people, maybe replaced with one which is far
pleasanter and more nearly correct.���

Local nimrods, Who delight in going
into the mountains in search of big
game, had the. time of their lives
(some of them did) over the week-end
and holiday, when they were out in
large numbers from Friday till Monday, the majority on their return having deer or bear tightly secured to
their autos, and as proud as hunters
could be.
Samuel Irvin, of the Irvin Hotel, and
party who were absent from the
city for a week on a trip to Fern-
strom's ranch, in the Kettle Valley
district, returned Sunday, Mr. 'Irvin
and his party,, consisting of Alderman
O. Osing and Messrs. Quimstrom and
Chocula, of Trail, all were successful in
securing a nice buck each, reporting a
wonderful week of sport afield. '
, James J. Cullinane, Hans Christian-
son and Frank Moline, who were in
the Kettle- Valley district for several
days, returned last week-end with
three large deer and one silver-tip
bear, the hunters on returning home
attracted a large crowd when they appeared in the business section with
������their trophies of their outing..
Harry Nesbitt and G. D. Bentley,
who spent the week-end near Rock
Creek around Greenwood, returned
here Tuesday night and. were the
centre of attraction when they drove
up on the main streets of the city,
having a large grizzly weighing in the
neighborhood of 700 pounds,. across
their auto, besides a deer and coyote.
Ernest Chesham, jr., and James
Wright,, who with' Ernest Chesham,
sr., and Harry Gould, were in the Kettle district for the week-end, returned
home with a deer, as did I. J. Trembath and H. Stephen Atkinson, who
secured a nice buck apiece on their
puting on the Kettle Valley area, their
party consisting of W. C. Gelling and
Warren Crowe.
L. Colenso arid Walter Cook, jr., were
among the younger nimrods going
afield around the Kettle River section,
and each bagged! a deer.

Entertainment '*' is stressed -in "The
Eagle," Rudolph Valentino's latest picture which will be shown at the Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, November
26th. This feature is said to abound
in thrills, comedy and romance.
The romantic star-is seen for the first
time as" a7Russian���-in garb more
picturesque than any he has previously
worn. His first appearance is as a
Cossackylieutenant, then as*the.bandit
who became known as the Eagle because of his swift,: mysterious movements.
The star is supported by a large and
distinguished cast, including Vilma
Banky, the Hungarian blonde whose
beauty and. ability have caused even
blase-Hollywood to gasp; and Louise
Dresser, for many years a star of mus-
cal comedy.
The action of the story takes place
in Imperial Russia before the revolution. The romance starts in a brilliant
royal setting and then goes to the Russian countryside. Hans Kraly wrote
the screen play, basing it on "Dubrov-
sky," a classic of Russian literature by
Alexander Pushkin, "the Shakespeare
of Russia."
This will be the.first showing of the
"Eagle" in Greenwood. ���
