General regret was- expressed
this week when it became known
that Frank Charles Buckless had
died at his. home on Kimberley
avenue on Monday,������Feb: 14th,
after a four months illness.
Mr. Buckless was born in
Chateaugay, N.Y., on Nov. 1st,
69 years ago, and came to Rossland in 1895 where he engaged in
the contracting and teaming business. In 1900 he moved to Phoenix and continued in a similar
line of work. Leaving that city
in 1906 he moved to Greenwood
and bought D. A. Banner-
man's livery stable and conducted
this business .until 1917 when he
sold out and left for Princeton.
Two years later he returned to
the district and until' November
last lived on the Williamson ranch
on the Main Kettle River.
_ The late Mr. Buckless was married at Pendleton, Oregon, to
Miss Georgia Harkness, who predeceased him in 1908. In 1915
he married Mrs. Thos. Williamson who .nursed him during his
illness and remained with him to
the last.
Mr. Buckless leaves, besides his
widow, two sons, Roy and
Charles, and a daughter, Mrs.
Charles Russell, of Calgary; also
two step-daughters. Mrs.' Fred
Lander and Mrs. Walter Shaw, of
Allenby, to all of whom the sympathy-0f the district is extended.
Frank was very "well known
throughout the province and was
very highly respected. He always took a'great interest in the
town and .district- and was instrumental in financing the Bell
mine when it started up at
Beaverdell a few years ago'andjhas
since"become a bonanza. He was
kind hearted and his generosity
will never be forgotten, His passing is keenly felt by bis Tmany
friends. .

Bay Group to Operate
A. Franchie, M.E., is planning
to start large scale development
on tha Bay group on Twin creek.
Machinery will probably arrive
within the next 40 days and exploration work will be immediately
started. If a sufficient ore body
is developed Mr. Franchie intends
erecting a 100-ton selective flotation concentrator.
��� Mr. Franchie is also investigating the copper ore bodies in this
district and contemplates the
erection of a 200-ton concentrator

'Worth its weight in golcP
Says Ottawa Matron
Mrhe. Beatrice Charlehois could not hold pen to write*
Nerves completely shattered,healthriiined.Noiv alert,
vigorous and strong, she gives praise to Tanlac
Tho two-year ordeal which sho
passed through before Tanlac came to
her permanent relief, was recently described by Mine. Beatrice Charlcbois,
of '22 Rose St., Otiawa.
"What I endured in lhat timc could
not be told," shc said. "I was so weak
J could hardly walk. My appetite was
poor and mv stomach gave no end of
trouble. Gas and pains would bring
on fainting spells.
"My nerves were so completely
shattered that I jumped in fright
every timc thc doorbell rang. My
hand trembled so that it could not
hold the pen to write my name. Night
after night I've gone without sleep,
too nervous to lie still for even a few
moments. Even my housework became too much for me.
"I tried all kinds of remedies ia
those two years, but can honestly say
Tftnlnc gave me my first real relief. It
built me up so that J 'vegained 11 lbs.,

calm and steady as ever. Tanlac is
worth its weight in gold."

Home Owners vs. Renters
Among the many interesting and valuable reports issued by the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics, the one recently made public containing an analysis,of
home ownership in Canada based on the last Dominion census is most
instructive. It is .likewise of an encouraging character indicating, .as it does,
that a fairly high percentage of Canadians own their homes.     ��� *.;'"
According lo the figures presented, there are 2,001,512 families in Canada;
and of this number 1,239,150 own their homes, as compared with 762,362 living
in rented houses. In other words, 02 out of every 100-families own their
homes. As is natural, and to be expected, the percentage of renters is much
higher in the, cities, towns and villages than in rural districts, the respective
���figures being: Itural home owners 7S.VJ. per cent., to renters 2L1/.. per cent;
urban home owners 46 per cent., to urban home* ranters 5-1 per cent.
Little Prince Edward Island makes the best showing in the Dominion
���with 87y2 per cent, rural, and 5GV1 per cent, urban home owners. This is an
old settled portion of Canada and the population is of course, small'in comparison-with the other provinces.
It will be especially gratifying to fhe people of the prairie provinces to
learn that this newer portion of the -Dominion makes a strong showing.
Although a young country where the people are really only beginning to'bo-
como established, and to which the majority of immigrants make their way,
more families already own their homes than is the case In the older
provinces. Saskatchewan, the third province in Canada in point of
population, follows closely after P.B.I, with'83 out of every 100 rural families
and 56 out of every 100 Urban families owning their homes, as compared
with, say Ontario, with .7 6 Ms per cent, rural aud 51VI: per cent, urban homo
Alberta comes a,close second to Saskatchewan, Sl% per cent, rural and
40Va per cent, urban families beings home-owners. Manitoba shows 79\_
per cent."rural, and il1/" per cent, urban home owning families.
The percentage of home owning families for all Canada would be-much
higher but for the fact that less than one-third of the families living'in tho
ciiies and towns of Quebec own their homes. In Ontario, on the other hand,
the artizans and workers in the big industrial centres appear to be purchasing
homes rather than renting, the percentage of urban home owners in that
province being, as already stated, 5-lM>,- or the highest in the Dominion
after P.E.I, and1 Saskatchewan/and almost equal to these two provinces.
Taken as a whole .these figures are gratifying in that thcy reveal
Canadians as a home-loving and home-building people, in marked contrast,
to the manner in which the residents in the big United States cities are
hived in blocks and apartment^ houses and dependent on restaurants, lunch
counters and cafeterias. This home building characteristic of Canadians is
reflected in the health of the people and the low* death rate in this country as
���compared with other countries. '     [      . -     '
The only fly in the ointment, so far as Western Canada is concerned, is
found in the fact that building lots in most iC not all our Western cities and
larger towns are held at too high a price, thus acting as a deterrent to.home
building. In view of the vast vacant acreage in which these centres of
population are located, and the ease with which they; can be extended, if
necessary, prevailing prices for vacant city and town lots are, lu many
instances, absurd.   They are a relic of the speculation indulged) in during
"boom days."      ' ~ 'W *. .  *..: ���.. :        ^~
Home building by young people about to be married should bo widely
���encouraged. It makes for permanence;aml_happiness in the home; it is a good
investment from a purely economic standpoint, While paying indirect
dividends in better health than living in an apartment or block. The town
���or city which encourages' its citizens lo build.and own their homes is found
to be more attractive, more substantial, more prosperous,' than one where a
large percentage of the .residents are -renters, moving about from house to
house, aud who can easily pull up stakes and depart for other scenes.

World's Smallest Seaplane
Brilliant   Future   Predicted   for   New
Type of Air Machine
The smallest seaplane in the world,

'delivered at Suresnes. Named The
Passkey, the perky little 'plane is the
first of many dozens to bo constructed. , . ' ."���;.

in 9 seconds and in a few minutes attained a height of 2,000 feet. In three
minutes after descending Marcel Bcs-
son had separated the machine inlo
many parts, ready to bo packed
aboard the submarine.    '
At a convenient point the submarine can rise to the surface where
the seaplane, in the lime mentioned,
can be assembled on deck and take
the air. A .brilliant future is predicted Tor this new type of air machine,
for it is asserted that it' can return
to the submarine after reconnoitring
and be as speedily hauled aboard.

Avoid Serious Results by Using
Baby's Own Tablets
When a child shows the.first symptoms of a. cold, such as sneezing, redness of the eyes, clogged or running
nose, prompt measures of relief, may-
avert serious results. Molhers should
always liave on hand some simple,
sale and effective remedy for immediate use.
Baby's Own Tablets act quickly,
contain no opiates or narcotics, are
tasteless and harmless. Mrs. Joseph
Cadicux, Holyoke, Mass., says:���"I
have uscd Baby's Own Tablets for
my children ancl find them a very satisfactory medicine. When my little
boy had a cold I gave him the Tablets at night and he was well'iiexr
day. I give them to the children for
constipation and tliey always do good.
I think Baby's Own Tablet* are much
easier to give a chi'd than liquid

expressed in ihe United States over
the action of the International League
of Aviators when, it awarded the Harmon Trophy for the best performance
of 1926 by an American flier, not lo
Byrd, who reached the North Pole,
but to Shirley Short, comparatively
Tot the choice was right because
it indicates the real advance in aviation. Short is more the flier of the'future than Byrd. As pilot of a plane
carrying the transcontinental mail between Chicago and Cleveland, he flew
2,000 hours last year without a serious accident. Whatever the weather,
he did the daily stunt. If he worked
six days a week for fifty weeks he
must, have average six and two-third
hours a day in the air.
Such a performance as this shows
the progress of the plane. It has become a part of everyday work. Short
probably thinks his job much easier
than driving a car in. Chicago. He is
further from the dangerous pavement
antl closer to the comforting stars.
. Cutting Down Expenses
In ihe-hope of cutting the royal expenditures, which ran to $4,500,000
annually In recent years, King Pra-
chatipok, of Siam, has cut down the
enormous electric light bill of tlie
regal ��� establishment which formerly
often ran as high as $500 a day. Many
of tho lights have been dimmed.

Says New York Sun
If not so   regular   as   (ho   ocean

Canada aud ils great neighbor to the

than   outgoers.   Much   natuially depends on business   conditions.   When
these aro bad or stagnant on one side
of the line thoy may bo humming on

is vastly larger and more developed,
"it is not surprising lhat the prospect
of employment is greater south of the

stop the continual exchange of popu-
���   lation unless"and until either country
imposes an' embargo on tho citizens
of the oilier.   This the United States
may eventually do  If the efforts of

words: "If cither country materially
gains by these sporadic movements, it
is Canada. Factory workers who come
into   tho   Unilod   Slates   from -the
Dominion are likely to be but sojourners, Inclined for the most part to return , to their own, land when work
becomes scarce for   them   or   more
plentiful at home. Persons who buy

more than   1,000,000   were   able   to

Perfected Knowledge Too Late
Some Unlucky Scientists Missed Fame
By Inches
Somewhere loday, unknown to the
world and  to each other, it is quite
probable that two scientists are working along    identical    lines    towards
some epoch- m:i__ ing discovery. One or
them will perfect his knowledge first,
and will announce it triumphanlly to
Ihe  world.    The second  worker,  no
less entitled to fame, will retire. lit-
will have tlie salisfactlon of being a
co-.discoverer���nothing more.
��� The parallel discovery of new scientific facts has occurred very often "In
tho past.   When Darwin published his
"Origin of Species" Dr. Allred Itussei
Wallace' had just come lo tlie same
conclusions, and was /dually writing
his treatise upon tlie subject; he was
just too late!
So, too, when Sir Oliver Lodge had
managed to send wireless messages
across, a laboratory, Signor Marconi
published to the world the results he
himself had obtained and became the
recognized  inventor  of wireless.
The same extraordinary coincidence
occurred with lhe discovery of X-
rays. Sir Williani Crookes lit Tipon
the discovery much as AWiUs did on
the idea of the steam engine���he was
thinking of other things at tho lime;
He happened to be working on
some scientific photography when he
discovered, to his amazement that he
had photographed some instruments
which lay nearby in their case. He
realized that he had stumbled upon
something marvellous. And he meant
lo follow it up.
But fate was against him. ITe was
at that moment due to start upon a
scientific expedition. - He locked up
his photographs and set forth, lo re-
sumo his work later. When he returned to England the world was ringing with the name of Professor K'ont-

. Spain Buried by Blizzards
A dramatic thing has happened in
Spain, perhaps "for tho first time.
When blizzards buried the railway
lines about Madrid in snow,_- aeroplanes were sent to the relief and res>-
cue of a train and ils passengers who
had been plunged into a snowdrift on
thc Madrid-Aibacete line.
The storm was so severe, the drifts
so deep, that in tho absence of tho
snowploughs employed   in   countries
more   used   to   these   extremes   of
weather, thc relief trains which woi'b
sent could neither clear the line nor
get.near the stranded train. Snow continued to fall one day after the other,
and thc train passengers were in serious danger of perishing from cold and
hunger.     The   aeroplanes ��� therefore
circled   above   the   "snowdrifts    and
dropped supplies of food and oil-fuel
to keep them   in   some   degree   of
comfort till release from their plight

A Trying Time for People With

Canadian winter- weather is a trying time   for   debilitated,   run-down
people.   The   close   air   of   slnU-up

liavs their effect on weakened  systems.   Thero is-always in such cases
the danger of severe colds, attacks of

pneumonia.    There is no other time
of year, when a bountiful  supply of

the one way to keep the blood rich

Hookey Teams Banquetted
(The Cranbrook Herald)   '
Following the hockey game on Wednesday night a banquet was held in
the Cranbrook Hotel, this being giveii
by the C.A.A.A., assisted largely by
members ofthe Cranbrook Rotary Club
and other- interested citizens, to which
had been invited the visiting teams as
well as the Cranbrook and Kimberley
hockey teams. Much credit1 is due Mr.
G. T. Moir for the happy thought and
the hard work rendered' by him in the
staging of the pleasant function. With
regard to the dinner itself it was most
thoroughly enjoyed, the excellent
menu provided ancl the eflicient service
rendered being much appreciated.
With Mr. Alan Graham at the piano
the entire company enjoyed the singing of several community songs, following whicli Mr. G. T. Moir called
upon Mayor Roberts to address tlie
His Worship, iu welcoming tlie
guests to the city, complimented both
teams on the excellent games which
they had put up. In the opinion of his
worship the same pleasure that had
been theirs in seeing' the game played
fairly would be ours if we played the
game in the more serious affairs of life
in the same way. He claimed that
Cranbrook would be pleased to welcome
again at any time teams like Greenwood and Michel.        \

thanks for the hospitality of the citizens
of Cranbrook and complimented
Greenwood on their hard fought games.
�� W. Smith, manager ^f the Greenwood team, in responding to the toast
to the greatest little town in tlie west,
expressed his pleasure at being present
and asked the chairman to accept on
behalf of himself and the Greenwood
team their sincere thanks for the hospitality shown them while in the city.
Also responding for Greenwood was
Mr. McCurrach, who gave a' most interesting resume of the history'of the
development of hockey in Greenwood,
going back 22 years, when hockey
started -there, followed by the senior
professional in 1909, down to thc development of the present team under
Taylor and 'others uow iu tlie game
Wheii called upon to speak for the
Rotary Club, the members of which
were largely responsible for Uie success of the undertaking, Mr. Alan
Graham paid a tribute to the value of
sport, claiming that far too little attention was paid to sport. It was most
important to play the game cleanly, to
take a defeat with a smile and to bear
a victory gracefully. It could be taken
as an accepted principle that if a man
played the game well he could be relied on as being straight in his business. All should encourage the getting in of the younger generation into
the game for in the makiug of a good
sportsman you make a good man.
Other speeches were made by Messrs.
Shannon ancl Nagel for the Kimberley
Hockey club; Mr. Hog-rath for the
Cranbrook Hockey club; Mr. Constantine for the C.A.A.A., and by
Referee, Ashton Powers.
The meeling ended with the singing
of the national anthem.

Feature of Ontario Winter Carnival
1. Entries In the Dog race.
2. Figure Skaters in action.
3. Ski-joring at Preston Springs, Ontario.
Reports of thrilling dog derbies from
��,i, Banff, Quebec City and other
winter sports centres in Canada, have
had their effect upon the boys of
Preston Springs, Ontario. The three
lads in the above photograph spent
many days training their collies to
run between the traces in preparation
for the winter carnival which was
held at that popular resort recently.
If the boys lacked in real huskie
dogs they had been reading about,
they lacked nothing in enthusiasm
for their big race.
��� Upon the eventful day at the carnival, a rumor was circulated among
the three that a real huskie was
entered. The afternoon proved the
rumor to be true, but the jealousy of
the   -wllies   was -greater  than   the
annoyance of the boys. The only
huskie entry was rendered 'hors de
combat' and relegated to obscurity
as far as the race was concerned, by
the peaceful-looking collie in the
The annual winter carnival at
Preston Springs provided theutmost
in snow-shoeing, skating, skiing and
all kinds of winter sports. Prominent
speed and figure skaters gathered for
the events from many parts of Canada  and  from   across  the  border.
Preston Spring's proximity to Toronto has made it popular as a winter
sports gathering place. Many clubs
in Ontario sent representatives to
compete in the events including the
well-known Toronto Skating Club.
A camp fire pow-wow concluded the
festivities of the annual carnival. The
grounds of the Preston Springs Hotel
were thrown open to the merrymakers, who availed themselves of
the opportunity thus afforded for
outdoor fun. *
