Kettle Valley and South
Okanagan Pioneers' Society
Due mainly to the efforts of Messrs.
Spraggett, and Arthur Roberts! President and Secretary, respectively, of
the above old Association, it was decided to attempt to have a re-union
and to bring together once more,
some, at least of the old stand by
members.
No meeting had been held since the
early years of the* "Great War" though
prior to that held' annually. ,
Accordingly to responses, a dinner
was arranged for at the Grand .Forks
Hotel, Grand Forks on Sept. 15th,
attended toy some 25 Old Timers. The'
menu was excellent and.the attendance
also most pleasant.
Mr. Spraggett made an admirable
chairman and kept the ball rolling,
every-one, in turn, had to contribute
something.or other to the entertainment of the evening.
Notable among those who gave
recitations, songs, speeches and remi-
niscenses were -Duncan Mcintosh of
���Beaverdell fame, James' Kerr ,the
shining light of Penticton, that worthy
representative of the oldest of all,
Jimmie Lynch and the genial Chief of
Police of Grand Forks.
It was decided that the holding over
officers should still exercise then-
functions and no new officers were
appointed.
A resolution was passed that the
date of eligibility be advanced from
1899 to 1904 and it was urged upon
those present that they endeavour to
get in new members so as to keep this
worthy association alive. The meeting
was adjourned to be again called at
the summons of the chairman 6 or 12
months hereafter as might seem ex-.
pedient. It has always been kept in
view to help those who are in need
and indigent as the records will show.
It was decided that the next place of
meeting will be held at a more central
point either at Midway or Rock Creek
to be hereafter decided upon.   ���
A very pleasant evening and so to
bed.   '

France lias increased the tariff ,pn
Canadian wheat from 20 cents to 27
cents, approximately, per bushel/according to o'lliciaT advices 7 received
from the Canadiau Trade Commissioner in Paris. The higher rale
comes into effect immediately.
While' Canada's ���export-of wheat to
France has''fluctuated' from year to
year, the present'Change oa the basis
of last year's export of -l,L55,8tJ7 bushels Will mean an increase in the total
'Preach duty collected on Canadian
wheat of nearly ?2SO,000.
Canada, under the 1922 treaty between the two countries, enjoys a
minimum tariff and most favored) nations' treatment on exports to France
and the increase now 'put into effect
is .due to the raising ol: the minimum
tariff rate to all countries by Prance.

More Sleep Necessary

Of Modern Life
Eight or ten hours, sleep arc necessary if you wish to keep.lit_ahd live

health ollicer at Plymouth, Mass.,
where the- 'Mayflower .'.landed. We
crowd .into our days three times as
-much as oui- grandparents did and
the strain of * modern-life is Jar givai-
er,. yet "it is doubtful if wo take as
much'rest as they did. That may be
the reason more Americans die of
heart disease than of anything else.
In bed the labor of the heart is reduced one-half. A man who has hart

Is Dangerous   7
The American Automcbile Associ-'
ation has sent out a .nation-wide-
warning to motorists to abandon the
prevalent practice of giving "lifts to
strangers along the road. Pointing
out that a serious natio'nal problem
is being created by the kindly,driver
who picks up the youthful roadside
traveller because more than seventy
per cent. of. these "down and outers"
later must bo cared ."* for - in ' some
charitable institution,1 the association
also cautions (he motorist on the
score of his responsibility should an
accident occur, inasmuch as tliere
havc been many cases in which (he
free-riding passenger collected heavy
damages from his host.
No better advice could be given the
motoring fraternity. All the dangers
of "giving lifts" are not jmenlioncd in
tho A.A.A. bulletin, however. There is
the "stick-up" man who, with a leer
on his face, holds up his finger to
"bum" a ride. If the motorist is kind'
lie stops and calls a cheery "Hop in!"
The bandit accepts with alacrity, and,
biding his time on the back seat until
conditions are propitious, slug's the
driver and his companiou dumps the
bodies alongside of the road, and
speeds away. In this connection it is
only necessary to recall the horrible
murder some years ago in New Jcr-
eey when a young couple returning
from a dance graciously gave a lift to
two men waiting on a street corner,
little realizing, that they had but a
few minutes to live.
It is not. safe or wise to stop at-
any timo or any place to give a lift
to anyone. If it is a young boy who
hails every car until he finds oue to
pick him up, the chances are a hundred to one that the motorist at the
end of the ride, no matter how long or
sow short, Svill get no' 1 hanks from
this modern type of beggar, and that
the motorist by his act is helping In
ihc stagnation of any character that
the youth might possess.
As ro tho question of thc passenger
suing his host if there is an accident,
and ihe ease, of hold-ups under such
circumstances, there can be no' controversy. Motorists should realize
these things and stop for no one,
whether in the city or in the country,
because under any circumstances
thcy are either putting themselves in
gvavo danger or contributing to tlie
delinquency of future citizens of this
country.

In the Way Of Trade  -
Matter Of-Ninety-Five Dollars Meant
w   Nothing To Texan
In the old haggling way of trade,
which has, in Ihis country, at least,
happily gone out for tlie most part,
and been replaced by'iho moro honest one-price system, in which a
dealer puts a fair profit upon his
goods and sticks to that, it was
customary to demand a great deal
more than the askcr hoped to get.
One lime on the Texas frontier a
man camo info a camp riding an old""
mule.
"How much for the mule?" asked
a bystander. X-
",11st a hundred dollars," answered
thc rider.
"I'll give you five dollars," said the
other.
Thc rider stopped short, as if in
amazement, and then slowly dismounted. .  '���
"Stranger," said lie, "1 ain't agoin'
lo let .a littlo matter of ninety-five
dollars stand between mc and a mule
trade.  The mule's yours.

Meaning Of London
Many Theories Have Been Advanced
As To Its Derivation
The name London Is the subject
of much discussion among 'philogists
in Great Britain.
One theory is that it means "the
fo'rt by the lake," from the Welsh
"llyn," lake and "din" - a fortified
pace. Another is that it is derived
from the Norse word "Lund" (diminutive "Lunden") a. sacred grove.
There Is a town in Yorkshire called Lund after Lund in Scan'diuavia,
at oue tlmo one of the chief commercial cities in Sweden. Its merchants traded with Britain in .Roman
limes. It is thought that Lund ln
Yorkshire, Lund in Sweden and Lunden, or London were probably the
sites of sacred groves, where the
prieats of the Bronze Age offered human sacrifices to thc Sun God.

"All Canadians must got a vision
of what the 20th century has 'in store

Saskatchewan, 25 years ago a penniless homesteader from Ontario, thrilling his 200 auditors with his picture

"The most disconcerting question
wliich can hc introduced, into discus-
sioii3, national    or   international,   is
proper placement by those companies
of the people they bring to Canada
and probably some further restiiclion
imposed upon the selection of prospective immigrants by the agents of
ihe companies.
In some quarters so much opposition
has developed to indiscriminate immigration that two well known instrti-
-riients aro being discussed as of possible good for adoption by Canada. One
is the quota law and'fiio other is the
imposition of a heavy la* upon immigrants from countries other (ban the
Uritish Empire, tiie United States and

Effective Gargle
Dr. James Collier, a well known
British physician, says some striking
things about poliomyelitis, commonly
known as infantile paralysis. He avers
it is conveyed by human contact only
and usually by those .who, do not suffer
.with symptoms of the malady, that is,
by carriers.
Investigations of households showed
that where there was an acute case,
30 per cent. * of the non-affected inmates were found to carry the virus.
The virus of poliomyelitis is instantly rendered impotent by hydrogen
peroxide, or by a one per cent, solution
of permangenate of potash.
Therefore either of these would be
valuable solutions with which to.gargle
the children's nostrils and throats
several times each day.
A fine new strike has been made on
the Homestake claim this past day or

Cast of 20,000 in Quo Vadls
A new and gigantic production of
"Quo Vadis" has just being completed
and is to be shown at the Greenwood
Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 24th.
For stupenduous size, both in cast
and scenes; for super-thrills and for
rare beauty of photography, this film
version jof the Sienkiewicz classic is
proclaimed an unequaled masterpiece
of thS screen artistry.
Emil Jannings, noted for his work in
"Passion," heads the cast, which is
said to number more than 20,000 men,
women and'children.
The scenes staged in Rome on the
actyal site of Nero's tyrannies, are
enormous. The Palastine, Circus Maxi-
miis and the Rome; itself of Nero's
time, half a century after the birth of
Christ, form the background for the
~dramift. ���*.������'���
The historic debaucheries of Nero
and his court and the terrible cruelties
of the despot, as vividly pictured, are
tempered by the tender love of the
pagan Vinicius for the beautiful
Christian girl, Lygia, and the unyielding faith of the followers of Peter, the'
Apostle, even when burned at the stake
and thrown to the lions in the arena
of the.Circus.
Jannings, as Nero, has given an even
more impressive characterization than
was his in "Passion." Nero was cruel,
lustful, blood-thirsty, always. ,Yet he
was inordinately vain, foppish, childish
in his self-admiration.; It was ' thus
that Jannings has portrayed him.
Nero, dead 1,900 years, lives again���on
the screen.
You cannot do without horses on the
ranch, reliable and well chosen breeds"
wiU - always have their place to fill.
What you want is the right kind.
