Mother's Day
Sunday, May 13
To Be Fittingly Observed in Greenwood
United Church���Wear a FlOM'er in
Honor of Mother
Once more, that best of all the many
"Days" that have come into being in
the past few years���"Mother's Day"���
is upon us. Not one of us, sons and
daughters of mothers as we are, needs
to be reminded to remember Mother
on this coming "Mother's Day", Sunday, May 13 th, or any other day for
that matter. With'ail of us" every day
is "Mother's Day", and should be so.
Some of us, the ones with the restless
feet, "appear to forget her, but it may
be lhat the wanderer thinks most and
oftenest of Mother. If there in anything in telepathy the wanderer surely
does so, for Mother, thinks most and
oftenest of the young who left the nest
to try their wings afar.
It was Coleridge.who said, "A mother
is mother still, the holiest thing alive."
That is a profound truth. Nothing
can take away from a mother the supreme fact of her /-motherhood. No
matter what may happen, death, separation, misunderstanding, forgetfulness,
she is a mother still. Truly, too, she is
tho "holiest thing alive", because she is
part of the creative plan of the Most
High, adding to the glory of the race
and ensuring its future. It is not for
nothing that woman has become the
deeply religious being she is. The task
of motherhood is divine; motherhood is
a spiritual function.
The glory of motherhood has ever
been in the sacrifices- the mother has
been ready to make, and make gladly.
The pain and anguish of child-bearing;
the tender devotion to the helpless
child at the breast; the careful nurture
of the wee bairn during the formative'
years; the sharing of little sorrows-
yet how great to, a child!���and the
kissing away of childish bruises; the
understanding of temper and temperament; the loving of what is sometimes
unlovely; the being a refuge in time of
storm; the encouraging of youthful
ambitions; the insight into impulses
and motives that others do not understand; the willingness to know only the
best of her boys and girls and the" utter
inability to see the worst, never believing it there, and1 the "sheer loyalty
with which,' no matter what others
may think ; believe, or say, nor how
much .others condemn, she stands by
with sympathy,' love, forgiveness .(if
necessary), and an ever-renewing readiness .to sacrifice for her little ones���
we never cease to be her little.ones���
these are the things that compel our
love for Mother, and that make us eagerly welcome "Mother's Day" as an
additional opportunity to do obeisance
to her whom we loveiand whose we are
-in-the-most-intimatewayr- ~~^~*
Mother���God Bless Her! God will
surely bless her, but let us call down
blessings upon her who has so richly
blessed us. In so blessing her we shall
assuredly bring down a richer, fuller
blessing upon our own lives, for the
very essence of motherhood lies in
Mother giving back in full measure,
"pressed down, running over", the love
her loved ones pour out on her.
"Mother's' Day" will be observed in
the United Church with Sunday School
at 10:30 a.m. and Evening Service at
7:30 p.m. Rev. Walker's subject will
be "Motherhood."
Miss M. McVicar motored to Greenwood on Sunday.
A large crowd attended the' Dance
here on the May 5th.
Mrs. M. Walker Smith left on May
3rd for Vancouver to see if the change
in climate will benefit her health.
Washington.���Andrew W. Mellon,
Secretary of the Treasury, has approved a ruling by the Commissioner
of Customs to allow tourist automobiles from other countries to be brought
into the United States, duty free, for a
period of 90 days.
Rather Simple
"I sure found myself in hot water
last night."
"What did you do?"
"Oh, I just turned on the cold."
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Rusk of the Main
River, were.visitors here on Saturday,
Rev. Father A. L. Mclntyre made his
regular visit here on Tuesday and held
services on Wednesday morning.
Victor Favrin and sons, Vino^and
Archie, arrived home from a few days
visit to Mrs. Favrin in Vancouver, who
has been in poor health for some time.
Her many friends will be glad to hear
that she is much better.
Almost A Cook
Three men went on a camping trip
in the mountains. None of them
had any desire to do the cooking, so it
was finally decided toat one should try
it, the stipulation being that whoever
made the first complaint should take
over the task.
At breakfast the forgetful one began,
"You didn't put any salt in this mush!
���but it's just the way I like it," he
added hastily.
The Social and Dance held in the
Farmer's Hall, Midway on Friday, May
4th, under the auspices of the Grand
Forks - Greenwood Riding Conservative
Association, was, .as'in affairs of this
nature, very - lively and enjoyable.
The Hall was taxed to capacity, those
present coming from all over the riding.
The stage was reserved for card playing
and many ladies and gentlemen availed themselves of the opportunity to
play their favorite card game.. The
Dance was the main attraction as when
the opening waltz was played their was
very little space on the floor to spare.
W. B. Fleming of Greenwood, - made
an excellent floor manager and kept
the dancers moving, cajling a variety of
dances. Bush's orchestra was commended for tlie up-to-date dance hits
and in no small way "also helped to
make the evening more pleasant for
the onlookers. The" supper served by
the ladies was par excellence and they
wero equal to the task of supplying the
good things to eat for" the 250. present.
Major R. Gray.'of Kettle Valley, acted
as chairman and called oh Dr. C. M.
Kingston, Conservative candidate, to
say a few words. In a -very brief
speech Dr. Kingston stated he was exceedingly pleased to be present at such
a large gathering. The home waltz
brought this long to be remembered
event to a close at about two o'clock.
The committee in charge will donate

Locomotive whistles are due for some
radical changes if heed is given, by
the railroads to the suggestions, of
Prof.. Arthur L. Foley of 'the physics
department at Indiana University. The
whistle blows the wrong direction," according to Professor Foley. "It is intended primarily to^be heard in front
of the. locomotive, and never further to
the rear than the end of the train.. By
reason of the location of the, whistle it
is heard three times as clearly from
the side as from the front.. The noise
ahead of the , engine is' cut down -by
placing the whistle behind the smokestack, steam dome, and sand box.
The remedy is -very simple.-- Professor Foley points out that "even a
mule knows that sound can be reflected
for the mule turns his eyes in the direction from which the sound comes."
All that is necessary is to place the
whistle on the very front of the locomotive and place a concave reflector
behind it. Then the whistle blast can
be cut down. The steam required to
blow it can be curtailed and an economy-- effected���in--fuel���It���is'-said"
4,000,000 tons of coal annually are
used for nothing but blowing locomotive whistles. That is why the railroads are giving serious consideration
to the- idea.
Residents of Greenwood and district
who live near the railway track would
welcome the change in the whistle,
especially when the train happens to
pass at an early hour.
Ruined I"
Hobson: "That .burglar client of yours
doesn't seem very grateful to you.for

Dobson:."He says I proved him so
innocent that his pals daren't trust
him with a swell job."
Early in June the Dominion Government will ship about eleven hundred
buffalo, principally yearlings, from
Wainwright National Park tb the Mackenzie River district in the north, as
has been done in the past few years.
It was found necessary, on account of
the congestion caused by the rapid increase of the animals in the Wainwright
area, to find another location for them,
and the experiment of shipping them
north has been so successful that it is
being continued.
Plans are nearly completed, for extension of the Wainwright Park
boundaries to the Canadian National
railway tracks, so that travellers on
their way to and from'1 Jasper Park and
the Pacific Coast may glimpse the herd
from the windows of their train.  '
No fires may be lighted in the woods
of' British Columbia now without
official permits which may be secured
without difficulty as in 1927.

��� It is ho longer possible to adulterate
milk with water or to remove a part of
the cream without the risk of detection,'says the Port Alberni. News. Institutions that handle milk for, marketing, butter making or cheese making,
are constantly making tests to ascertain the purity and condition of the
product. -Bulletin No. 14, New Series,
of the ^Department of Agriculture at
Ottawa, fully explains, the process of
testing milk, cream and dairy byproducts by means of the Babcock test
and tells how adulteration, skimming
and other tampering with the milk
may be detected. If part of the cream
is removed the milk will contain a less
than usual proportion of fat.: The
milk will also have a higher specific
gravity because fat is the lightest part
of milk.' Roughly speaking, for each
one per cent of fat removed by skimming, the lactometer reading of the
partially skimmed milk : would be increased by about one. degree.! The use
of the lacometer is fully explained in
the'���'���, bulletin^;. As an example . the
bulletin cites the case of 4 per cent,
milk that has a lactometer reading of
32. When one per cent, of the fat
or cream is removed, the lactometer
reading will be increased to about 33.
Further it is shown that if-the lacto-
meter reading increases one degree
moved by skimming, the per cent, of
solids not fat would hot be affected.
In actual practice it is usually found
that partially skimming milk slightly
increases the per cent, of solids, not
fat.. Skimming milk, therefore reduces
the per cent, of fat and increases the
lactometer reading' leaving the per
cent, of solids not fat0 normal or slightly high. If, on the other hand,.instead yotXremoving! some of -the- fat,
water is.added to the milk, this is also
easily detected both by testing for fat
and by determining the specific gravity
of the product. If a sample of milk
shows a lactometer reading of 32, one
gallon of such milk will weigh 10.32
pounds as' against 10 pounds, the
weight of a gallon' of water. If one
gallon of this milk is mixed with a
gallon of water we Avould have 20.32
pounds which would be the combined
\veight of a gallon of milk and a
gallon of water. One half of this
quantity, therefore, would weigh only
10.16 pounds which would be shown as
16 on the lactometer.
If the milk in question contained 4
per cent, of fat with a lactometer reading of 32 the percentage of solids other
than fat would be nine, and, mixing a
gallon" of water with a gallon of water
with a gallon, of such milk, would reduce the fat to 2 per cent, and the
solids not fat to 9 per cent. From this
it will be .seen that adding water to
milk reduces the percentage of fat,
lowers^ the lactometer reading and the
percentage of solids no fat, all 'three
being reduced in equal proportions.
This bulletin, which is obtainable from
the Publications Branch' of the Department of- Agriculture at Ottawa, explains not only the testing of milk for
all purposes but, as well, the testing of
butter and cheese.
Seventy Doughobors in the vicinity
of Nelson appear to: be inclined to
make g:ood their threat of a few weeks
ago to refuse to send their children to
school or pay their taxes. They are
unconnected with the . law-abiding
section of. the "community" and call
themselves -the "Sons of Freedom.".
They paraded the streets of Nelson
yesterday and several of them preached
in Russian and' English, advocating
among other things the union of capital and labor ancl the universal tilling
of the soil. Their objection to sending
their children to school is based on
their belief that Ihey merely would
be turned into "slaves of Satan."
As long as these extraordinary people confine their activities to ritualistic performances there will be no necessity for the authorities to worry
very much about them; but as soon as
they defy the laws of the country in
wliich they are earning their livelihood they become subjects for the sort
of attention which is given to other
disturbers of the peace. If that does
not cool their ardor, thc best thing to
do with them would be to send them
back to th country of ��� their origin.

(Experimental Farm Note.)
Farmers are realizing more and more
that irrigation is crop insurance, ancl
demands more than a haphazard ap-.
plication of water.
Considerable investigation has been
undertaken on the duty of water, time
of application, and number of applications for the various farm crops. The
farmer should obtain this information,
and become familiar with the general
principals, and apply the findings intelligently to his soil and crops.
The furrows system of irrigation is
largely followed in British Columbia.
The two main faults to this system as
used by th average man are, first, the
furrows or laterals are too long; and
secondly, they are spaced too far apart.
The laterals should be from 200 to
250 feet in length and about three feet
apart. This will ensure a rapid and
even distribution of the water.
leave it to take care of itself, trusting
that the water will somehow find its
way pver the piece to be irrigated.
This is a great mistake, and accounts
for a great loss of water, as well as un-
evenness in water distribution, and the
resultant uneven crop.
Over irrigation is detrimental, ��� as
when the ground is saturated the
plants do not function properly On
the other hand thc farmer should not
delay irrigation expecting it to rain,
as experience has shown that the light
summer rains in this Province are soon
absorved and evaporate.
There is a strong tendency not to
disturb the irrigation furrow once it
is set. With hoed crops this is a mistake. The ground should be cultivated
before irrigation to loosen it and make
it more receptive. Following irrigation
it should bc cultivated to make a soil
mulch, and conserve the moisture.
Irrigation is a specialized branch of
farming, and success depends on the
individual, and on his capacity to anticipate the requirements of the crop,
and to meet those requirements
Keeping pace with the Moderns or
Ultramoderns today is a breathless
task, for they move rapidly. Fashion
in pictures follows fashion with almost
as much speed as it does in the showings of the famous French couturieres.
In reviewing some of our more important contemporary exhibitions, one
is quite impressed by the modes.
It would "seem that the very pink
ladies, inaugerated by Renoir in' his
latter days, are still in vogue, but
where, oh, where! are the leaning
houses that so recently were the last
word in art._ Cezanne was probably
responsible for that style. Some say
that, the eyes of the great master- did
not focus quite correctly, hence his
slanting walls; or was it done for
significant form or dynamic symmetry or some other aim which wholly
mystifies the layman?
Anyway the artist who during the
past few years, in spite of the style,
clung to the perpendicular in architecture has indeed been brave. But
it appears that at-present the smart

when he paints his still-lifes, "for he
seems to look down on his tables,
which gives them the appearance of
sliding down hill. And, oh, how his
followers .have grabbed at that tablecloth idea! Volumes could be^written
on the table cloth in modern art.
Frequently it is a soiled white affair
with folds casting black shadows,
and several apples and a dour-looking lemon go skidding over, its surface;  for the combination- of cloth,
apples and" lemon is1 a ��� most popular
But, who, .oh who, invented the
check tablecloth that at present is
the Jast cry in style? Now we know
that the Moderns are trying to express their emotions and we appreciate that fact, but what we do
not understand is why they feel so
intensely about the red-check tablecloth. In the recent international exhibition at Carnegie, Institute were
two notable examples. One cloth fills
about one-third of the canvas, each
check precisely drawn and perfectly
correct according to perspective, but
what puzzles us7 is why the" checks
seem' more important than th"e five
people, for the former are placed in
the -five figures are more or less
crowed against the frame, so that.-it
appears a providential accident that
they are seen at all. ���   - -
And in. the same show there is a
prize still-life��� (still-lifes are the
correct prize-takers this-year)���of the
very centre of the picture while poppies
in a glass vase, with a red-check fabric
draped affectionately about its base.
When the world is full of. so many
beautiful textures it would be interesting to know why the_painter chose to
combine the humble cotton check with
the splendor of the Oriental poppy.
But in the same show Matisse has introduced a tablecloth with sprigs. (It
would seem" that-Matisse has tricked
his confreres by not being constant to
the fashion he has started.) From now
now.on we predict that the check will
be passe and a figured cloth will come
in vogue.-���I.K. .-,' I
THURSDAY, MAY 10, 1928.
Tho Dandelion, like the poor, is always with us. To maintain a lawn
free from this pest means, in most.parts
of the country, a constant warfare, and
we have at present no methods of era-
diction to recommend which are easy
or permanent. The following methods
which are employed are more or less
successful according to locality and the
persistence with which thcy are ..followed."
1. Thick seeding���Any means by
which a thick ,vigorous growth of lawn
grass is maintained will greatly aid in
the control of lawn weeds. Bare spots
and thin sod invite a growth of weeds.
Occasional sowing of new, clean grass
seed, well raked into the bare spots,
together with annual fertilizing should
be practiced.
2. Digging the dandelions.���This the
most common control method employed, is quite effective in removing the
large plants if persistently followed
and properly done. Unfortunately the
piece of root left in thc. ground is capable of sending up one to six or more
spouts from the cut end, especially if
not cut.deeply. A one inch chisel or
long-bladed knife are suitable tools,
and the work is easiest done after a
rain or irrigation while the ground
is soft. The plants should be cut as
deeply as possible and the plants destroyed to prevent ripening of the seed.
j     3.- Spraying.���The use of iron sul-
| phate at the rate of one and a quarter
I pounds to the gallon of water applied in the form of a fine, forcible spray
upon the lawn has proven effective, at
s the Colorado Agricultural College in
I this state, in greatly reducing the num-
i.ber of plants, and in some cases enti-
i( rely  eradicating  them.   Three  appli-
[f cations about ten days or two weeks.
[,{apart should be given just after the
l-lav/n is mown.   No- water should be
'(applied during the next twenty-four
hours.   The grass will turn dark at
'j first, but soon recovers and usually appears .more vigorous than before.   This
work appears to be the most effective
when "done   during   midsummer   and
early autumn.   Gasoline applied with
an oil-can at the rate of about a lea-
spoonful in .the crown of each plant is
l^juite   effective  in  killing   the   large
(plants,' and is useful in .conjunction
^ith the other methods.
