Death of Mrs. J. E. Olson
The. Greenwood   and   district
people were greatly shocked when
they learned of the sudden death
of Mrs. Nellie, Pearl Olson",- age
21 years, wife of J. Ernest Olson,
of Eholt. *Mrs. Olson .had; not
been feeling very well for several
days and on Thursday evening
was brought into the   District
Hospital arid operated on Friday >
afternoon for . appendicitis.   She
seemed to be doing quite nicely
when suddenly on Saturday she
became   very seriously ill  and
everything possible was done to
save her, but she passed out early
m. the afternoon.
Mrs. Olson or perhaps -"Nellie
Fretz" as she would be better
known came to this district, "
with her parents 13 years ago
from Maple Creek, Sask., where
she was born.. "Nellie" was well-
known around here and was verv '
well liked.
The deceased leaves to - mourn
her loss her husband, her little
boy of only 31-2 months, her
parents Mr. and Mrs. Sam -Fretz
and her sister Mrs. John Skilling.
The sympathy of the whole, community goes out to these, very
lonely ones.
Only 18 months ago Mr. and
Mrs. Fretz returned from- Portland, Oregon, where they had
buried their two sons who died
together after an illness of but a
few days duration.
The funeral service was held
by Rev. A. Walker from the
undertaking Parlor on Tuesday,-
April 5th, at 1 p.m." and was
largely attended. A beautiful
selection of flowers covered the
casket The . pall bearers were
Herbert Auger, William Auger,

The Dance held, on April 1st,
in the Masonic Hall, under the
auspices of the Ladies Hospital
Auxiliary was, as all their dances
always are, a great success in
every way.
The music by the Beaverdell
Orchestra -.was excellent, the
crowd a large and merry one; the
supper Jables^ most attractively
decorated with Mrs. A. R. Royce's
wonderful flowers arid tastefully
arranged by Mrs. H. J. Purkis in
her usual able manner; the supper
���well! they say the proof of the
pudding is in the eating of it but
we believe a good bit of it lies in
the remarks made afterwards and
they were full of praise and all
we can say is when will the next
Auxiliary Dance be?
A few riovel ideas were introduced to add to the' merriment of
April Fools Day, and added greatly to the evening's fun. Many
old time dances were indulged in.
Altogether everyone had the very
best time.
H. A. Nichols was the floor
manager and proved very capable.
During the evening the center
piece worked and donated to the
Hospital by Mrs. H. J. Purkis was
drawn for and Mrs. F A. Johnson
held the lucky ticket winning this
lovely piece of work with No 17.
The proceeds for the above
amounted to $16.75.
The net proceeds of the dance
and supper amounted .to $60.00.
Time nor space' does not allow
to print the names of all who
helped make this dance such a*
success and all we can say is that
.those who planned' it, those who
managed it, those who.catered to
it and those who came to it and
those who tidied up afterwards all
deserve  three cheers  and  then

Too Late!
With the memory of the theatre holocaust, In which some scores of.
���/ittle children'-were the victims, still fresh In Ihelr minds, the citizens o��
Montreal  are  "passing  through  another  tragedy,   an  epidemic . of ��� typhoid
fever which, at the time ot ���writing, lias afflicted  over  1,300. people-'and
resulted in over forty deaths.
The talcing of proper precautions and the provision of necessary safeguards would have saved the people of Montreal'from tlie sorrows of the
theatre: fire, and, in like manner, the present typhoid epidemic could easily
have been prevented.
It is (he same old .story over and over again of locking lho stable door
after the horse has heen stolen, :uul one is sometimes inclined to question
whether human beings aro, after all, so much superior In intelligence to
animals, ln the case of animals it is noticeable Unit once bitten they are
twice shy, but humans go on repeating the same blunder tiniu after time
and pay large penallies in sorrow, suffering and loss.
Following the Montreal theatre fire an investigation was made into
every theatre aud hall of public assembly in the city to ascertain whether
theyMvere' in a condition safeguarding the lives of those attending them.
Practically all of them were found deficient iu some respects; some were
condemued and'closed up. It should not have required a great catastrophe
and the loss of many lives to lead civic ollicials to discharge a duty which
should be receiving their attention all the time.
And now, when it is too late, investigation has established that the
typhoid outbreak is ihcresuIL of impure milk supplied to citizens. One man
kills another and he has to face a trial for murder or manslaughter. In
Montreal one thousand and more ave lying on sick beds In homes and
hospitals lighting for life, ancl more than two score are dead, all the result
of criminal negligence.
ln the case of this typhoid outbreak there is double neglect on (hc part
of thc health authorities. In the first, place it was their sworn duty
to safeguard' the health of all citizens througli the assurance of a supply of
pure milk. That i.s ono of the duties of a civic health department, and' for
the discharge of which they are paid salaries out. of the taxes of thc ratepayers.. In the second place) medical science has placed In their hands ihe
means of preventing tjphoid, of rendering people immune from its ravages.
Now that the epidemic is raging energetic steps are being taken to itmoculalc
tens of thousands of citizens, when, in the case of many, it is everlastingly
coo late.
Not only so,' but these emergency-measures cost many times as much in
effort and money as the day to day carrying od of this all important work
would cost in the regular work of health administration. Why is It tliat
municipal councils insist they cannot afford to' expend money to protect the
health ancl lives of their people, and then expend many times the required
amount in,a frantic 'endeavor to overcome the CYil which through their
shortsightedness lias-resulted?
And lete'not other places adopt a "holier than thou" attitude toward
Montreal; rather let them examine their own municipal households. It is a
well established fact that smallpox, diphtheria' and typhoid fever can Co
���absolutely prevented and banished from our midst. These frightful diseases
can be rendered as extinct as. the dodo, leprosy c? yellow fever. Yet thoy
continue to stalk through the land claiming their thousands of victims every
year. Why? Because of what amounts to criminal negligence on the part or
health oflicials and people generally.
Our \Vestern prairie provinces pride themselves in their work for the
promotion of health, but they still have a long way to travel in' the direction
���of the eradication of preventable disease. Thero is much educational work
yet to bc done, ancl it is sincerely to he hoped ihat provincial health departments, municipal coimcils and health officers, all doctors, and every
���organization interested in the health, happiness and well-being of the peoplo
will throw themselves unreservedly into the campaigns now in progress at
~man*y-points-undei���the-"Seymour-riair'-for-the"wl ping-otit"of-prevcn table
disease. The community which does not engage in this warfare stamps
Itself as hopelessly backward, and jn different to thc- best interests and
highest welfare of its people.
Canada's Certain Destiny
Viscount   Willingdon   Says   Dominion
*o be One of the Great Nationalities o'f the World
Canada's certain destiny is to be
one of the great nationalities of the
world, a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations, but free nnd
independent in its administrative life,
Viscount Willingdon declared in an
address before thc Canadian Club at
Tho Governor-General outlined his
vision of the Empire, "an empire the
like of which the world has never
seen, an, empire which, whatever
pessimists may say, It is my firm belief that the moro independent- and
free the various parts become in matters of administration the closer win
be the ties of loyalty that bind them

Found  Millions But
Received No Reward
British Officer Left Sick Bed to Locate
Wreck of Laurentic
No Admiralty recognition has come
to Commander Geofrey Unsworth,
D.S.O.,-D.S.C., R.N.H., who located ,lht.
"Laurentic," from which $25,000,000
ln bullion has been salved. Commander Unsworth, who is now in charge
of a steamer trading between Grimsby and the Con'inent, was a pilot in
Irish waters ancl mine clearance officer, of the Lough Swilly flotilla when
the "Laurentic" struck.
He saved the ship's complement,
but. suffered so much from exposure
that he was admitted to Londonderry
Hospital. Admiralty expeditions failing to locate tho treasure-laden vessel, Commander Unsworth insisted on
leaving his sick bed to take part iu
the search. His knowledge of Irish
waters enabled him to discover thu
wreck and buoy the spot, making possible the recent salvage operations,
for which honors and reward havo
been generously bestowed.
The Admiralty apparently regard
the commander's part as all in the
day's work, for so far it has gone
without recognition.   ���
Map Shows Many Lakes
Area North-East of Winnipeg is Maze
of Waterways
In the past few years, interest has
been turned to fhe region in Western Ontario lying North of the transcontinental railway linel,'due to mineral activities in such localities as
Red Lake and the surrounding territory.
Aerial flying In this general region
has assumed such importance that It
has been considered advisable'to issue an "aeronautical map" for the
special use of air pilots. This map,
known as the Winnipeg District Aeronautical Map, Is printed in colors on
the scale of 8 miles to an inch and
covers an area from Winnipeg to a
point about'50 miles east of Kenora
and from the latter place to the point
where the Ontario-Manitoba boundary
line turns in its course ��� from , due
north to north-easterly.
This area exhibits many variations
but ils most striking characteristic is
the intricate maze of water features
that are ste down in the vicinity of
the Ontario-Manitoba boundary line
and easterly therefrom. In order
that the air pilot may at all times
know his location from the grouno
features below, all water features are
mapped that it is possible to show on
the scale used. The result is a net
work of lakes and rivers that would
be confusing In their multiplicity if
especial means were not taken to
simplify them. This is done, on the
map, by indicating the regularly, travelled water routes in a special color
and also in differentiating the main
waterways from, the rest.
The map, although designed particularly for uso of aviators," should
prove equally serviceable to tho general public. For those who wish lo
travel in this region, whether by dog
team In winter or by canoe in summer, It shows the features in much
greater detail than is usual for the
scale used. It may be obtained from
the Topographical Survey Department of the Interior, Ottawa, for the
nominal price of 25 cents, or if desired in folder form, for 50 cents.

'   You have likely heard'it/staled ihat
inmates of our mental hospitals are
deficient/in  brains. ��� You  have* also-
heard t'he'"ro7rse of this, that is, that
these mental'cases ' are-.above   the
average iri brain or intellectual powei:.
Which statement is correct?  Speaking generally, our-,mental  cases are
about the average in intellect, because
what are termed   mental   defectives
are now placed in separate hospitals,
and some degree of mental and physical training is given them. -
What is really tlie difference between the individual in the mental
hospital and the  .average,   everyday
'citizen? Is It a matter of brain power or intellect? No! The difference is
simply  ihai  the   brain  or  mentality;
|oT the inmate is ftp interfered with by
"doubts, hesitations, and delusions'"
that lie cannot adjust himself to the

two.   Perhaps ho has delusions'; that
a certain individual or individuals arc
attempting to harm him in some way.
You can readily seo that a brain that
harbors doubts, hesitations, and delusions, may. be a very active, in fact
an overactive brain, but what kind oi
judgment will it possess?
���As -mentioned   before,   sometimes

, The image can be reflected ln ever-

Mystery of the Towers
Built in England During the War But
Were Never Used
The mystery of two huge towers,
built on the south coast of England
during tho war and never used, has
been cleared up.
The towers, 80 feet high and built
at a cost of approximately $5,000,000
each, were to be the forerunners oi
many similar ones for the defence of
the English Channel.
They were to be towed out to sea
and strung together across the Straits
of Dover, linked together at distances
of a few hundred yards with nets and
heavily fortified with guns. In the
lop of each a powerful searchlight
was-to bc placed-.
The armistice, however, made It unnecessary to continue the scheme and
the towers were anchored off' Shore-
ham tor some years. One has becn
broken up and the other is used as a
lightship off Spithead.
Not Always a Good Rale
The idea that a man is as old as
his birthdays is one that is fast, disappearing. There"aro too many eminent men beyond the psalmist's span
to hold to such a principle. Birthdays,
alone, are-poor way to judge a man oi
a woman. Many men of ripe^ years
are also of ripe Intellect and* judgment, -while many men and women*"
never reach that stage.
It is suggested that judges be com-
pulsorily re'lred when they have
reached the age of sevenly-fivo years.
That does not ^ecm to be a good rule.
A judge, particularly may have gained a wide outlook In his service which
would be missed on the bench.

If you���dear reader���who have followed this little story of May, know
of any crippled child who could be
helped as May has been helped, write
to the Headquarters of the Society,
217 Vancouver Block, Vancouver, and
find out more about the humane and
wonderful work that is being done
there for the little ones who must
otherwise have fallen by the way.
Already nearly 100 children have
been assisted and in many cases
cures have been effected,, The various disabilities include lameness following infantile paralysis; congenital
club foot; bow legs; knock knees;
tubercular ' spine; spastic paralysis;
malformations of hands and feet and
other physical deformities too complicated to list here.
Will, you help a Crippled Child���
if you know of such���to take advantage of the. tonic and therapentic values of this Radiant Heat Theatment
which has already achieved such��re-
markable results in so many apparently hopeless cases. <-. Even an incomplete survey of the cripple children in
British Columbia makes evident lhe
fact that there must be many who
could derive great benefit if their
parents or friends only knew there
was such a Clinic as this as near to
them as Vancouver.
Reports and enquiries should be. addressed to Dr. Frank McTavish under
whose personal supervision and direction the  Clinic  is  conducted.
Card of Thanks
��� Mr. J_ Ernest Olson, Mr. and
Mrs..'" Sam Fretz and Mr. and
Mrs.; J. Skilling wish to take this
opportunity of thanking their
numerous friends for kind expressions of sympathy shown during their recent sad bereavement;
also for beautiful floral tokens.

She smiled -shyly and sweetly at me

Later I saw her- pathetically attenuated girlish body under the beneficent
radiations of the Alpine Sun and Deep
Therapy Lamps. The bright x dark
eyes met mine with a brave challenge
as in answer to'a"question she told
how she had undergone four operations on her feet. I also discovered
she was wheeled to the Clinic a distance of a mile and a half, by a younger sister, in order that she might have
these treatments.
I asked her age? Sixteen years'!
The golden age' of girlhood with womanhood beckoning over the dim
hills of tomorrow. And I wondered
what dreams she had. dreamed

weariness that must have been her
When May first came to the Crippled Children's Clinic- she was fourteen
years old. Diagnosis revealed apas-
tic paralysis and deformed feet in
early childhood. She was very thin
and frail. All her joints were still
She could just get around on'crutches
if helped on to them. She could not
stand alone.'; She could not get up if
lying down. Her head dropped helplessly backwards and she had to pull
it into position with her hands. Her
weight was 51% pounds.
Under the doctor's prescribed treatment, remedial exercises, , message
and the Alpine Therapy Lamp, gradual improvement and progress developed. After two years of hopeful
patient and modern curative methods.
Mayo can kneel on one knee, get. up
on a stool, help with the ironing, sew
on the sewing-machine and she does
all the mending. She can walk'up the
back steps without stopping and can
wheel her own chair. So May looks
out on life through new spectacles
colored with cheerful optimism.   One
