MIDWAY DEFEATS BEAVERDELL
Midway won its first baseball game of
- the season by a score of 9 to 4 on the
home diamond on May 20th, against
Beaverdell. A fair size crowd were
present and the weather was ideal.
��� The game was very interesting, both
pitchers" retire the side in the opening
" innings. Midway went in the lead in
the second getting two runs ahd added
three "more in th third. Nordman had
good control for. Beaverdell, but received poor support, ,errors being responsible for runs." .The ..home boys
counted two more rilhs in the 4th and
5th', while Beaverdell found Wiltze in
the 5th and made two runs," George
Morrison and Caldwell crossing the.
plate. Nordman retired in the 6th to
Clark, and took right field, &here he
made some spectacular catches.   Ralph
- Eveleth relieved Wiltz in the 7th and
had easy going until the 9th, when
Beaverdell made a strong rally and
secured two runs, the game ending
9' to 4.". Midway victory was the result of the home boys playing errorless
ball.V     -,

The Laurion mine, situated on Cranberry Mountain, south of Beaverdell,
is  the  centre  of' interest to  mining
men this district.   A crew of seven men
are making great headway in the tunnel, driven to tap the high grade body
of ore.   This "property is being operated
by -Messsrs.   Johnston,   Draggo   and
associates.   Seven  well defined  veins
have' been uncoverd on the surface,
besides a number of smaller "ones.   The
tunnel is a large one being 5 x 7 in the
clear and is in 175 feet with approximately another 100 feet to go to strike
the No. 4 lead, the high grade body. An
average of four feet a day, through a
diorite    formation,    is    accomplished
which is considered veiy satisfactory.
The" plant consists  of an 'Ingersoll-
Rand 2-drill compressor,' driven' by a
27 h.p. engine. v
- The No. 2 vein was encountered some
weeks ago showing 20 feet of good milling ore. One of the mains, features
of this mine is the fact that no faults
have shown up. The mineralization
of that area is known as a secondary
deposit.
The property has an ideal location,
along side, the K. V. .railway, and the
placing of ore in the cars can be done
at a small cost. The success of this
venture -will greatly help to ��� stimulate
mining across the river from Beaverdell, where in the past little attention
has been given.
.   The .Annual Picnic and Celebration
will be held at Ingram Bridge on Empire Day, May 24th, under the auspices
of the Rock Creek Women's Institute.
,   The programme follows:���
12  noon  Memorial  Service  at  the
Monument.
Lunch.
2:30   p.m.   Basketball,   at   Ingram
Bridge School  and Children's  sports
and Baseball on the old hotkey grounds.
Major  F.   E.   Glossop   will, be   the
principal speaker at the service at the
monument.   It is hoped there will be
a good attendance, as it will be the
Major's last public appearance in the-
Valley as he will be leaving shortly
to reside on Vancouver Island.   Rev.
A. Walker and Rev. E. A. St. G. Smyth
will also take part in the ceremony.
The Midway Boy Scouts will be in attendance. ,    '
-. Messrs. McMynn and Brown of Midway will have refreshments, stands on'
the grouds.        -- -

with a Dance in the Riverside Hall,
music to be supplied for the occasion
by, Bush's Orchestra.

place" during the past few -weeks.
Many attended- coming from an area
from Cascade to Beaverdell. Bush's
orchestra, as usual, was excellent and
most generous with their encores.
The music- played during the supper
hour was much appreciated by "the
dancers. The floor was in splendid
condition and the refreshments delicious. The flowers, lilacs and snapdragons, greatly added to the appearance of th supper tables.

and girls, giving them a mother's care
and thought yet Queen Victoria never
neglected her duty to her country:
Great changes took place in the world
during her 64 years of reign.- The

ROCK GARDENS A
X    PROFITABLE PLEASURE
There is no doubt that the Rock Garden as a feature has come to stay.
There will be more rock gardens, how-
over, if people only understood that it
is really a simple form of gardening.
Many people seem to think that a rock
garden is expensive to build and difficult to maintain. The fact is that a
rock garden is no harder to look after
than a perennial border and not half
so difficult as a border of bedding
plants. Further, you can have bloom
for more months in the year and a
greater variety of color in a given space
than  any  other  form  of gardening.
The first question is one of situation.
There is only one situation in which it
is impossible to have a rock garden of
sorts, and that is under heavy trees.
The drip' is fatal to so many plants so
keep away from the trees if you can.
While a south-east or south-west exposure is the best, one may inake arock
garden almost anywhere, because there
are rock garden plants that will suit
any situation.
The next point to be considered is
the contour of the land, and upon this
must depend, to a great extent,'the
type of rock garden to be constructed.
Sloping ground is the best for thus
more pleasing effects may be obtained
with less labor than by construction on
level ground. Besides the drainage will
be better, which is very important point
to all plant life. Therefore avoid a
hollow unless it can be well drained.
Tne nature of the soil should be taken
into consideration. Rock plants like
good soil with plenty of grit and sand
in it and the deeper it is the better.
Avoid clay as much as possible as most
rock plants hate it.
To recapitulate, the rock garden
should be undulating and facing south
or thereabout' and should have plenty
of air and sunshine with good gritty
soil.   -
The types of rock gardens may be divided into two sections, which one may
call natural and artificial. In the natural rock garden the rocks have been
placed by nature and all there is to
do is to try and use them to the best
advantage while in the artificial rock
garden all the rocks have to be brought
there and placed.
, We will not discuss the natural rock
garden for the reason that every bit of
natural rock is different and must be
treated according to its needs. We will,
therefore, pass on to the artificial rock
garden. The sunken form of rock garden generally takes the" form of a
sunken path, .the centre of a little valley, with rock work rising on each side.
This can be quite a small affair covering qnly a few square yards. The
path should be made to wind so as to
give as many aspects to the rocks as
possible. The higher- the rock work is
carried the more room there will be to
plant. ' "   .
The rockery bank is a good form.
This may be the ��� side "of a small hill
either natural or artificial, with' a
gradual slope, if possible, to the south-:
east. This is a very attractive type
but depends a great deal upon the contour of the land, which should lend
itself to the purpose in view. ...
Next let us consider the rock bed or
very small rock garden. "This is the
most delightful way of growing alpines
where only a small space can be devoted
to them. The surroundings of a garden of this kind are not of great importance, but try and select a bright
sunny spot removed as far as possible
from the drip shade of trees. There is
no garden too small for a rockery bed,
and it is surprising with what success
some of the more difficult plants can
thus be cultivated.
^The-most=unusual^an'd_"perhaps~th'e~
best form of this type of garden is a
raised bed, the outline of which may
be varied as fancy-dictates. It can be
made on the sunken principle, but this
would mean more labor and might not,
under certain: conditions, be so satisfactory.
All that is:aimed at in a garden of
this type is to have some place in
which to grow alpines. It is useless
to try. andjmitate.larger gardens, because the result would look out of
keeping, not to say puny. It is therefore advised, that those who cannot
haye larger gardens should content
themselves with the rockery bed taking
care that the soil is perfect and that
the plants themselves are of really good
varieties, It is a mistake to fill a: small
garden with common things; it is far
better to confine oneself to the choicer
kinds where > the space is limited.���

NEW IRISH COINS
STRUCK IN LONDON
Specimens of the new Irish Free
State coinage have now been struck at
the Royal Mint.in London and sent to
Dublin for approval. They bear on one
side the Irish harp and upon the other
the face value clearly impressed, also
emblems, such as cattle, indicative of
Irish industries. The farthing, the
halfpenny, and the penny are brenze.
the threepenny and sixpenny pieces
are pure nickel, and the shilling, the
florin, and the halfcrown; 65 per cent
fine silver, being thus intrinsically more
valuable than the corresponding British coins which now cohtaina materially larger proportion of alloy.
Unlike Britain, the Free State does
not propose to mint a 5s. piece.
The Province of British Columbia .is
setting a splendid example.to the rest
of the North American continent. It
is annually cutting enormous quantities
of lumber, but with wise foresight the
Government is looking ahead and making provision to maintaiif^ts industry
in perpetuity. It has already 6.500,000
acres of forest reserve, to which it has
recently added.no fewer than 25,000,000
acres.-^Christian Science Monitor.

proclaimed, itliat this summer, the
Fifth Annual "Across Canada and

Sinclair Laird of Macdonald College, Ste. Anne de Bellevue, P..Q,
over tho lines of thc Canadian Pacific Railway, will toe undertaken
this yoar, it has been announced
toy the C.P.R. offices in JMontreal.
This tour leaves Toronto on
July 23 by special train, travelling west via Sudbury, Port Arthur, Winnipeg, Indian Head,
Moose Jaw, CaJgary, Banff, Windermere. Nelson, Penticton, Vancouver, and Vietpria;1 and returning east1 by .Emerald Lake, Yoho

Of Educational Value.
* Although the traveller is interested chiefly in the attractions iof
the tour such as scenery, "sights"
and novel .experiences en, route,
the educational phase, is one
highly considered by its promoters. The vbulk of the minor difficulties    and   differences ��� that
"Wooly Westerners" leading a wild life,
Westerner,   and  vice
arise within the! Dominion aro tho
result of lack of mutual understanding by the various coinipoii-
ent parts of the country in the
���problems of the.others. Mutual
understanding and '������ appreciation
can only be achieved by inteiest
and knowledge, and these aie
best acquired by travel and personal visits' to tho other parts of
Canada and intercourse with
one's neighbours.
Passengers on board the C P.R.
ispecial "Acro33 Canada and
Back" train will not only enjoy
the .glories ioi western scenery,
the invigorating- breezes ofr the
Pacific, and the delightful voyage down,' the Great Lakes; but
they will also become acquainted
with the "Jife of *: their Western
.compatriots1. As,they pass thiough
the country theiy will see the industrial and agricultural activities in progress and enjoy Western hosipitality as well as scen--
ery.       ':   /
Under the .leadership of one of
the most (prominent and popular
educationalists in. Eastci n Canada, DSan Sinclair Laird or Macdonald College, and composed
chiefly of travellers from Eastern
Canada, the visit will accomplish
much in.the way. of furthering
common knowledge and making
the!Easterner better acquainted
with   the
versa.
jMotoring Included.
The twonty-ono day tour will
give tho tourists participating a
comprehensive and attractive
view of the west. Arrangements
have been made to break the
journey in many interesting
ways. Motor drives will be taken
between Banff and Windermere
over the famous 104 mile highway; along the new "Greait Divide Highway" from Field, B.C.,
via Emerald Lake and the Yoho
Valley and1 Wapta Bungalow
Camp and through the quaint Du-
khobor country and the fertik
Okanagan valley. ' *
- Steamships ���will not only ha
taken down the Great Lakes, but
also on Kootenay Lake, and across
the Straits of Georgia between
Vancouver and Victoria on the Pacific coast.
The equipment of the spercial
train will include dining cars,
sleeping cars, drawing room and
compartment cars, a special baggage car fitted with dressing
100ms and wardrobe accommodation, and observation cars, which
will be an open-top type during
the journeys through the mountains. The train will even, have
special news bulletins and receive
copies of local newspapers along
the route,

A REAL BOOK OF WORDS
You might not think that there is
anything very romantic about a die-!
tionary, and if you were looking for an!
interesting book it is far more likely*,'
that you would invest in a novel or
book of travel. .'
, But there is a far more poignant
story behind "The New English Dictionary," which will be shortly placed
on the market, than could ever bc
associated with a mere figment of a
writer's brain. I
.- This wonderful work was begun some
53 years ago by Sir James Murray, i
when he was headmaster of Mill Hill
School; when he'died it was the general
opinion that he had ivorked himself to
death trying to complete the labour
to which he had given practically his
whole life. But, fortunately, he had a
wife who was almost as interested in
the progress of the .dictionary as was
Sir James, and it is partly owing to her
efforts that it is now near to completion.
��� Something ol the colossal magnitude
J of the task may be realized from the
fact that, befqre any work'was dono at
all on the actual book, five .million
quotations were collected, and a huge
number   of   books   had   to   be   read
ii through, including may published before A. D. 1600. z
if   So many were the books that had to'
'be kept handy and the quantity of correspondence that it was necessary to
|t,file for reference^ that Dr. Murray had
erect  a   special  building   in   the
.''grounds of his Oxford house.
tj   It is said that the word "of"- was one
J'of the'hardest words to deal with, since
lino one has ever compiled references to
lit before.   Of those scholars who help-
Fed Sir Jaines Murray in the earliest
���stages of the work, only two'survive���
Booth clergymen and both Scots.
C. P. R. Adds Further Trackage
13UNFLOWERS SURPASS
CORN AS SHEEP FEED
'In digestion experiments with sheep,
bonducted by Jerry Sotola of the department of animal husbandry at the
Ktate Agricultural College, Pullman,
Wash., it has.been found that under
fverage conditions an acre of sun-
rowers grown for silage will produce
liuch more digestible nutrients than
In acre of corn. / /
|.The result shows that'"2763 pounds
total digestible nutrients were se-
ftired from 4868 pounds of sunflower
llage taken from an acre, while 2372
jounds were contained from an equal
rea.   These'figures were taken on the
jry matter basis.
[At the Washington experiment sta-
lon, Pullman,-sunflowers'yielded 12
Tins of green feed per acre, while corn
lown on adjacent fields produced only
re and seven-tenths tons. As many as
lirty and forty tons of green sun-
|)wers have been produced from plant-
Igs of the Mammoth Russian on irri-
Jted fields.

trackage will shortly have
been laid by the Canadian Pacific
Railway in serving the ports of
the Vancouver district, is shown
by the extent of the works now
underway about that city.
An indication of the'programme
of extension of the*already multifold trackage facilities is given in
the plans being carried out-at Pier
B-C at the foot of Granville Str'tet,
and in the proposed new C.P.R.
yard at the south end of the second
Narrows Bridge, and of the allowance for rfurtlmr additions when
necessary: .   -
Air. C. A. Cotterell, C.P.R.
General Superintendent, has issued
''���!f,.ireg demonstrating the vast ex
tent of existant trackage facilities
exclusive of main and. subsidiary
lines running through' the yards
for the passage of through and
local trains, serving Vancouver and
her sister ports.
"On the north shore to, the south
end of the second'Narrows Bridge,
the C.P.R. has more than 9 miles
of trackage. From the south end
of the second Narrows Bridge to
Coal Harbour are another 27 miles.
The False Creek, Yard comprises
27 miles, and the south False Creek
Yard has between' three and four
miles. - In the Coquitlam Terminal
Yards,' serving both Vancouver
and New Westminster, there are 22
miles of trackage, with yard capacity for double that mileage should
it become necessary. Another four
miles of yard rails lie west of the
Fraser River Bridge.
This trackage, so far as the
C.P.R. is concerned, is not only
taking care of a steady and normal
growth in trade through the great
port, but also handling an. abnormal expansion in westward grain
movement. Additions have been
made and others will be necessary
to care for this growing westbound-
tfaffic which - reached a peak in.
the crop season of 1927-28. The
Canadian Pacific's first westward'
wheat shipments were made in
1922, attained more than 50,000,-
000 bushels in 1923-24, and reached
the record this spring of 53,000,000
bushels shipped through the port
before the end of February.

brings joy
to Matsqui
The telephone's part in a
wedding anniversary
At Matsqui, in the lower <
Fraser River Valley, a man
and his wife recently celebrated their silver wedding
anniversary. As a climax to
that joyous occasion there. -
came a telephone call from
a son and daughter living in
Chicago?
' Over thc mountains and
the plains which lie between
. Chicago and the Pacific
Coast, greetings and congratulations sped along the
telephone wires to the listening parents. Surely a happy
inspiration on the part of the
son and daughter!
The long - distance telephone service lias often
brought pleasure in this way.
