,u   , or? y caPacity audience in
the local theatre, Greenwood and
District Amateurs gave a Concert
on  the  10th  inst.,  which gave
much pleasure to many and exceeded in excellence the performers own ideas of the outcome. -   .
From the moment the curtain
went up at ��.10 until 10.50 p.m.,
the well rounded programme held
the crowded house's attention and
many encores were demanded and
given.     To   make   comparisons
would be difficult indeed, suffice
it to say that in view of the applause accorded, the performance
of Mrs.   Reynolds in  two. very
well rendered violin solos and the
"Coon" act  by  Mr.   and Mrs.
Clarke of Beaverdell, seemed to
delight the crowd most and called
forth  many expressions ��� of approval.
Beginning with a chorus entitled "Four Leaf Clover," by the
entire troupe, followed by "Aint
She Sweet", the audience beheld
suitable scenery (the efforts of the
local artists also) and a chorus
appropriately dressed for the
occasion.. Miss Kempston took
the leading part in this and was
followed by Mrs. G. S. Walters in
the same role dressed to ridicule
the part and this brought down
the house.
The opening chorus was followed
by a pleasing vocal solo by Miss
Harris in her usual pleasant and
effective manner and was well
. Mr. Juan Puddy took the leading part in a chorus called "If all
the stars were pretty babies and I
was the man in the moon", supported by a number of young
ladies secreted behind stars from
which -they finally emerged to
comfort the man in the moon.
Mr. G, S. Walters as-boss of
the "Douk" fire fighters gang
created much amusement and the
antics' of'the - workers-" (so' called-) [owners
to do as little work as possible
and get in as much time as possible, was most amusing. The boss
was forever being asked to listen
to stories and one member never
finished his being drowned out by
the rest of the voices.
Mr. Geo. Love of Beaverdell,
gave two very pleasing violin solos
followed by the entire company
singing "Tell me pretty maiden
are there any more at home like
you," an oldia^ouritelwhichltook
well, and showed much care in
preparation.^,   7
Miss Harris and Mr. Love enacted a. sentimental duet which
was very well received and reflected great credit on the performers.
The Hawaiian Quartette in
which Miss Collins, Miss Price,
Miss Skilton and Mr. J. Puddy
took part was most pleasing and
the harmony of the "Ukes" played by Miss Collins and Mr. Puddy
blended well.    ���-���
A dance duet in which a well
dressed sheik (Miss R. Axam)
was bowled over by the charms of
a winsome Miss (Miss R. Skilton)
culminated in a short exhibition
of the popular Charleston.
t Miss Harris then gave a recitation depicting the office boys version of Hamlet in the latest slang
and the funny passages, etc.,
created considerable, amusement.
The colorful effects of the Neapolitan Nights chorus were very
pleasing,' the entire cast being
gracefully grouped and attired in
Italian peasant dress costume.
Miss Collins taking the solo part
very well and here as in many
other numbers Mr. J". Hallett is
to be congratulated on his' color
��� While it is felt that much more
detail could be gone; into and also'
much -.credit, is due to execution
andcgeneral excellence, there is no
doubt but that each member .taking part deserves much praise.
The able efforts of Mrs. A
Walker, Mrs. H. T. Newmarch,
Mrs. A. Francis and Dr. Francis
as regards tutoring and music are
worthy of special mention. Mr.
W. C. Wilson, who was chiefly
responsible for all scenery designing is to be complimented on his
Mr. J. H. Goodeve as President
of the Hockey Club thanked the
audience for their support also
conveyed thanks to Mr. G. Gray
for_ his unfailing willingness to
assist in all matters relating to
the public welfare.
.The Concert came to a close
after singing the National Anthem,
British Columbia
..The recently published report
that the mineral production of
British Columbia has reached" a
total of close upon one billion
dollars and the figures concerning
the production in 1926 make it
quite apparent that this Province
occupies an important position in
relation to the World's production
of mineral.
It is a magnificient total, in the;
figures of which is written a story
of optimism, of endurance and
courage and of scientific achievement. If it were possible to
allocate these excellent qualities
each to its individual possessor,
the prospector and pioneer operator would, in all truth, be credited
with -optimism, endurance and
courage whilst those who move in
the realm of mining operations bf
fehe grander scale would, with -
equal truth, receive fitting recognition of their achievements brought
about> through the medium of
scientific endeavour.
However, classification is futile.
Each quality is a component part
of successful mining operation,
whether such operation be on
large or small scale and it is due
to this combination, together with'
the bounties which Nature has
lavishly bestowed upon our Province, that the mining industry of
British 'Columbia has reached
such splendid proportions.
In the larger operating mines of
the Province there are vast reserves  of ore  which provide' a
guarantee of present and future
valuable  production.    Although
the names of these great mines ���
are by-words, it must not be considered that it is from them that
the total production is forthcoming. ��� Throughout British Columbia, scores of smaller mines are in
operation, many of which are paying handsome   profits   to  their
vners. -   - - -         ���
The Greenwood District possesses a striking example of this,
m the Silver Mines of Wallace
Mountain  afr Beaverdell.    The
Bell  Mine  and the Sally Mine
have been steady producers  of
high-grade  Silver ore and have
yielded and continue to yield ex-
ceDtional profits.   Other mines on    '
Wallace Mountain,  notably the
Wellington Mine and the Beaver '
Mine have contributed substantially to thejoutput of the Camp ,
while several other properties have
shipped varying tonnages of ore
of high Silver content.
British Columbia is shown to
be the greatest producer of Silver
of any Province in the Dominion- ���
of Canada and, in this connection,
the mines of Wallace Mountain
have been an appreciable factor
in the attainment of that enviable
The example cited is one of
many similar conditions in -the
other Mining Districts of this
Province. It is not only in the
Greenwood District that the lesser
operations are of such nature as
to demand a place ih the sunshine
of the grand total of the mineral
production of British Columbia.
The other districts have their
mines which cannot be classed
amongst the major operations and
these constitute, as it were, the
rank and file of the industry from
which, at times, a leader may step
The experiences of the past have
prepared the way of the future.
���Within,-.the far. flung borders of
our Pacific Province there lies a
territory    which   may  properly ���
be described as the. "Last Great .
West"  pf ���?, the mineral areas of
North America.   Within this vast
territory there will, no doubt, be
discovered   and  operated  many
mines of the first magnitude biit
first of all will come the prospector
and in his wake the pioneer operator.   To these men. belongs the
support of all "those who are interested in the development of the
country "and to those who have
faith in this basic industry ofthe
Province will accrue the tangible
rewards of optimism, courage and

Canada s Diamond Jubil
Only once iii tho history of'any nation docs tho opportunity come to
Its people to celebrate tho diamond jubilee of Its .founding. Canadians will
enjoy tliat opportunity ou July 1st next, and it is gratifying to note tliat the
celebration will be well nigh universal from coast to coast. Can/adians, no
doubt,. woulll hare with equal zest aad enthusiasm celebrated tho'fiftieth
anniversary of Confederation but for the fact that in 1017 they -were engaged
lu a life and death struggle in which the very existence of Canada was at
etalce. .The victory won through the great sacrifices then made "should but
add to1 Uie gratitude and pride of our people hi this year of the Diamond
Jubilee. .    .
Children today may have tlio opportunity of celebrating ono hundred*
years of Confederation, but bur adult population will not, and so those who
actually witnessed the inauguration o'f this young nation, and those who have
taken part iu its oarliei development, will no doubt throw themselves wholeheartedly into tlio ceremonies which will commemorate this historic event.
It is the repeatedly expressed desire of tlio National Committee created
by Parliament to promote this Diamond Jubilee celebration that it should be
participated in by all the people, old and young, in small hamlets and rural
districts as well as in the larger centres of population. It is the spirit"of .tho
ceremonies rather than in their elaborate character that their real significance aud value will be found.
Thc National Committee lias, therefore, urged that there be at least
one simple little ceremony everywhere at the same hour, and have suggested
that, at twelve o'clock noon on July 1st in every community however small,
bolls should bc rung, whistles blown,' and the two national anthems "God
Save the King" and "0 Canada" sung. And again, that at 2.30 o'clock on the
aftorno'on of Sunday, July 3rd, a community service of general Thanksgiving
be held. For this latter service the National Committee is preparing a simple
jii-ogratnnic of exercises suitable for all communities..-.
These are suggestions wliich can readily be carried out in all communities, and H is to be,hoped that the people of the Dominion will accept the
lead of their National Committee and unitedly co-operate wiih it in giving
effect to these suggestions. Tliey need in no way interfere with the larger
and more- elaborate programmes beiug arranged in most cities, towns and
it is further-suggested that a tree be planted in every community with
filling ceremonies to be hereafter aired for and known as the Diamond
Jubilee Confederation Tree. This, too, offers no obstacle: on the .score or
cxpomse to any community. Not only can such a tree be planted-in some
public place in all urban communities, but there would appear to be ho
reason why a Confederat.io.it Tree should not be given a place of honor in lhe
grounds of every rural school throughout 'the length and breadth of the
A.s a further marking of Canada's sixtieth birthday anniversary,' it Is
proposed thai, some public park or place in every community!! be named
"Canada Place" or "Canada Square." If all such places already bear names,
.hen one. the designation"of. which has no special significance, might bo
re-named In accordance with this suggestion.
Every child enrolled in a public, separate or private school in Canada in
this Jubilee year is to receive a medal struck in the Koyal Mint at Ottawa,
the gift of the National Committee. The presentation of these medals to the
pupils ofrcrs a splendid opportunity to school district officials* to plan a little
cerennony at which a short talk ou what Confederation has meant and has
achieved for Canada could be given, and the boys and girls of today urged
to Vender loyally and devotion to Canada and dedicate their lives in service
to their country.
Like most people living in northern, climes, Canadians aro not mucli
given to showing their reelings. Their patriotism is something they do not
talk-about to any extent, and they are seemingly averse to ���display. But this
_ljinp-ioi.vLJ.ub'left is one nccasion-nn^which-tlio-peo'plO-oClCauada-may-wclLun^
bend a little, display their flag with profusion, shout and cheer. It will do
lliem good, aud especially should the children be encouraged to regard
Dominion Day, 1927, as a red letter day in their young lives, and celebrate it*
accordingly. :       ''.,;**

Loss Ran Into Millions
in   Canada   Last
Were Costly
The forest fire' sltuatioirin Canada
during 1926 was again a very serious
one. There were marked contrasts In
fire hazard conditions between the
East ancl the West and consequently
wido differences In tho total fire
losses in the two parts of thc Dominion. In Eastern Canada both the
spring and fall were co'ol and rainy
so that now low records for forest
fire losses were established. A midsummer period of fire hazard occurred
in the East generally but It passed
without any great damago being
done. In Western Canada, 192C closo-
ly followed the two previous years,
berth ln the intensity of the hazard
aud in tho fire losses. Danger conditions continued, generally, throughout
tho season and thc scant precipatlon
afforded little relief from early spring
to late fall.
According toi figures prepared ln the
Forest Service of thc Department of
the Interio'r, there were 5,529 forest
fires in Canada last year which burned over a total area of 1,824,015 acres.
Tho total gross damage and loss is
estimated at $7,-168,313.

Gain New Vitality by Building
-'.. Up the Blood        c ������>
There, are many women who pass
their days in a constant state,of weariness. ** They have barely sufficient
energy to enable them to perform
their manifold duties. Often they
have an aching head, a miserable
paiu in the back, and limbs that feel
as, heavy as lead. Tho whole trouble
is due to bloodlessness. No woman
need suffer in this way. It is easy to
obtain a supply of rich rod '''blood! by
taking Dr. Williams', Pink Pills. The
new.'.blood created by these pills
rapidly builds up the system; headaches and backaches disappear,
energy returns and the joy of living
is felt���ouee more... , .
Proof of these statements is given
by/Mrs. Ed: Lantfre, Stoney : Point,
Qui;., who says:���"For a long time I
tion, ahvays-feeling tired put, sleepy
and weak. The least work about tlio
house would leave mo helplessly tired
and nothing that I did seemed Lo give
relief. ''Believing that a vest might
do'me good, we.moved to town, but,
contrary to expectations, instead of
getting bettor I was growing steadily
weaker. One .day while talking to a
neighbor, she urged my taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, telling me that
her daughter.-had been In a condition
much liko mine. This persuaded me
to try this .medicine, and I'have, much
reason to be grateful that I followed
her advice. After the use of a few
boxes of the pills, there could he no
doubt Ihht they were helping mc, antl
as I continued their use my health
and strength came back and now I
am doing all my own work and feeling in the best of health. For this
splendid coiidition I must give my

Construction   of   floating   landing
Ticlds in mid-ocean lias been outlined
by New York in response to' the prediction of Captain A. Lindbergh that
passenger air lines across tho Atlantic  will  be  established  as  soon
seadromes are built.
Howard It. Armstrong, engineer of
the ID. I. DuPone de Nemours Company, and A. C Heaphy, engineer ancl
contractor, each have built and
patented working models of these
floating landing fields. ���
A clear, unobstructed surface of at
���least  1,200 feet square is necessary
fo'r <a satisfactory seadrome, experts
said,  it  must  bo  securely anchored
and built to   allow   for   the   strains
caused  by the' rise  ancl  fall of the
ocean, so that waves will not cause
any break in the surface of tlie field.
Mr.  Ileaphy's cellular plastic (ielcl
is like a giant honey-comb with the
cells mado watertight ancl filled villi
air.    The  field  will  bo  far  broader
than the distance between the*.*crests
of waves, .he said, and so will noi
roll c>r plunge. Its massive' size ancl
inflexibility will prevent damage  by
waves, he declared.
The Armstrong design shows a field
built, on stilts  above the waves and
supported by air.  chambers.     Great
discs set horizontally 150 feet below
llie surface of the waler will add stability by their resistance to wave nc-
tion. The waves are thus allowed to
run  free through  the superstructure-:
instead of being broken by the island.
Mr. Heaphy    claims   priority   and
says'ho owns ihe basic patent on tlie
' ""project.    Work will start within two
.months on a full scale model of the
Armstrong project,  it  has  boon  announced.

Visit Had Desired Result
Queen Mary Aided Specialist in Helping Disfigured Soldier
Many reasons can ber given why the
royal.family in Britain retain such an
unshaken position- in - the hearts ,Qf
their people in an age when so many
monarchies have toppled over.
' One Is that the members-' of the
royal family have made it their business to keep close to their people.
A  story. came  out recently  about
Queen' Mary.    c
It is recorded that a specialist at
one of the Great Army hospitals told
tho Queen of a man wiiose face was
entirely    disfigured,   and   who   had
brooded over this until lie was almost
mad.    If she would only sit and talk
With llie wounded   man,    concealing |
her repugnance, perhaps he would bo-
libve his disfiguiement bearable, and
cease to brood himself into madness.
Her Majesty sat for almost, an hour,
close to the man   whose   face-  was
only mangled meat,. talking serenely
on indifferent   subjects,   unsmilingly
yet  calm,  reassuring,  queenly.    She
said afterwards: "It   was   indescribable.   I thought I could not do it; but
then, of course, there is nothing one
can't do."
Tho effect of tho visit was just
what the specialist, had anticipated.
A marked change came in the'unfortunate man's mental �� attitude, he
found a new, outlook on life from the
face that Her Majesty had spent an
hour talking to him, and had shown
no revulsion whatever from lo'oking
on his marred fa.co.
