On Saturday, April 14th a farewell
dance was held in the Greenwood
Theatre in honor-of Dr. and Mrs. A.
Francis. The Doctor is moving his
family to Hedley where a larger practice awaits him.
While the citizens gathered together
and had a merry timc, in-1 their hearts
they wore reluctant to say good bye as
they knew. Greenwood was losing one
of its most valuable additions of recent
years. "Doc" was not an ordinary person. He was an institution. As a professional man we were very fortunate
to have a person .of his ability among
us. When it * came ' to golf, hockey,
amateur shows etc. his'shoulder was always at the wheel and he kept it spinning.
Mrs. Francis was also a real acquisition, being a foremost worker in the
church and always assisting with any
enterprise for the welfare of the town.
For pure unadulterated public spirit it
would .be difficult to find their equal.
With these facts in mind one can easily
imagine the loss Greenwood has sustained.
At the dance Mayor Gulley and Mr.
G. S. Walters were asked to make a few
remarks. They responded in splendid
style, telling of what valuable .citizens
the Doctor and Mrs. Francis had been
and also gave a brief history of the
Greenwood and Distric Hospital, mentioning the following ,facts.
^ For years we had been drifting along
without a hospital and 'then Dr.
Francis came along and sized up the
situation and explained that he would
locate here on condition a.hospital be
provided.' The & citizens of the entire
district went to work with a will and
with the -Doctor's co-operation soon
had a small hospital in running order.
In a very short time this was found
inadequate and larger quarters were'
provided in the present building which
would be a-credit to a much larger community.       V ,
On looking over the "records we find
that Dr. Francis's originial' predictions
haye been fully carried "out "and that
the number of 'patients treated has
fully justified the organizing of this
institution!
At the close of the dance their many
friends crowded around to say good bye
and wish them every success in their
new field.

PRESENTATION TO MRS. FRANCIS
~ At the home of Rev. and ��� Mrs. A.
Walker on Thursday, April 12th a surprise party was given to Mrs. A.
Francis by the Ladies Aid and the
choir of the ��� United Church.
And a surprise party indeed it was.
Very casually Mrs. Francis was sitting at the piano playing utterly un-
concious of the crowd gathering in the
adjoining room. When "the crowd
burst in there was some commotion.
Those gathered there sang and told
stories to their, hearts content. Then
Rev. Walker was called upon for a
speech. He remarked about what valuable citizens the Doctor and Mrs. A.
Francis had been and when he said
they would be greatly missed he.echoed
the sentiment of everybody prsent.
Mrs. Morrison then made a few very
appropiate remark's and presented Mrs.
Francis with a silver cake tray as a
token of the esteem in which she was
held by the members of the church.
Mrs. Francis replied and told how absolutely she had been taken by surprise
and she hardly; knew how to express
her gratitude but; she would always
have the kindest feelings in her heart
for the people of Greenwood.
Mrs. Walker assisted by the visiting
ladies provided dainty refreshments
after which farewells were "taken each
expressing their regret at the departure
of the Doctor and his good wife.
BRIDESVILLE NEWS;
D. McPherson, M.L.A., was a visitor
to Bridesville on;Friday.
Production figures for the first qua-
ter showing substantial increases in
the principal products as compared
with the corresponding' period of-last
year, were made public by President
J. J. Warren, in a statement read by
him at the annual meeting of shareholders of the Consolidated "Mining &
Smelting Company of Canada Limited,
in Montreal, Quebec "on"1 April 11th.
-The statement was-as follows:
During the first'quarter of the year
operations proceeded smoothly and satisfactorily. Production'was well maintained, being somewhat in excess of the
corresponding quarter, of 1927.
"The comparative figures are:
' 1928   ���     1927
Lead (tons')         42,060       34,153
Zinc   (tons)  ..'".....   .'22,089       16,020
Copper (tons)  .....     '- 2,303        2,617
Gold "(ounces)          7,437        7,464
Silver   (ounces)   ... 2,048,029   1,720,088
"The lead tonnage in 1928 includes
lead shipped as'lead bullion.
"There are no unsold metal stocks.
Metal prices are about the same as at
the close-of last year, but they seem to
bc somewhat firmer. ,
"Excellent progress continues to be
made with the installation of the new
electric power plant at Bonnington
Falls.
"Owing to inprovemerits in metallurgical processes, particularly applicable
to residues., from ��� main operations, a
greater extraction of the orginal metal
content of the lead-zinc ores has become possible. In order to take of the
resultant increased production of zinc
and further zinc production from other
sources, your directors have decided,to
expand the zinc plant- by adding 100
tons to its daily capacity. This will
bring it up to approximately 375 tons
a day.-. .���,''��� .y>...
" "Further plant extension to^ apply
these processes to the residues will proceed, concurrently with the expansion
of the zinc plant proper.
��� "The production of cadmium onoa
commercial scale.has begun."
A resolution of regret at the death
of C. R. Hosmer, former director of
tho company, was moved.   ���
Consolidation of the by-laws of the
major"importance/was approved at the
meeting.
There was no changes in the board
of directors. A total of 396,643 shares
was, represented at the meeting, being
78 per cent, of.the outstanding capital.
Dr. Scott stated that he had noted an
increase of 6000 shares and asked if it
was one; authorized some years ago.
It was explained that the amount
authorized was not 6000 shares but
only 1000 shares, and that none of
those shares went to the C. P. R. If,
therefore, the C. P. R. had increased
its holdings of Smelters stock it must
have done so by ,purchase in the open
market or otherwise, but not from the
Smelters company.
PROVIDENCE MINE TO

INTERESTING ROLL CALL
The Rock Creek Women's Institute
had as the .Roll Call at their.recent
meeting "A good motto to carry Thro'
Life." Many old favorites were quoted.
The Golden Rule "Do unto others as
you would���;" "The path of duty is the
way to Glory;" "Whatsoever thy hand
findeth to do���do it with thy might."
A quitter never wins, and a
winner never quits" is the modern
rendering of "He that putteth
his "hand" to the plough���". Many
a rhan made his fortune by
minding his own business" is true if it
has not the Co-operative spirit. ,The
Farmers' motto "Bite off more than
you can chew���then chew it! Take on
more than you can ��� do-5-and--do.it!"
had a supporter���but not Ella Wheeler
Wilcox who. urges us to'have "Kindness
in others' troubles, and courage in our
own" who with much the same idea
says the important question at the
Judgment Day mil be "Did you keep
a good heart through it all?"

WAS NEVER MAYOR
John Desrosiers, one time mayor of
Greenwood, and of recent years a resident of Osoyoos, has decided to make
Princeton his headquarters and will
erect himself a small home on the lot
which he. owns on Bridge street, adjoining the property of .the Orange
Lodge.���Princeton Star.'
The Star editor is in error, Mr. Desrosiers aspired for Mayoralty honors
here in the early days but was defeated
lat the poll by Duncan Mcintosh.
. Tentative shooting seasons for big
game all over British Columbia were
announced in Victoria on April 16th by
M. B. Jackson, K. C, chairman of the
Game Conservation Board, for final
approval or revision after they have
been before the public for two weeks.
There will-be few changes in the
seasons as arinounced by Mr. Jackson,
from the. regulations in. effect last
year. The most inportant change is
the reduction of- the deer season all
over the province by two weeks. In
the western district the deer season
will open September 15 and close November 30, while in the eastern district
it will open September 1 and close
November 30. In previous years the
deer season ended December 15. The
Game Board feels that the open period
should end at the beginning of December, when the running season starts,
as after that date the flesh of bucks
is unfit to eat, and this offers a strong
temptation to some hunters to kill does.
The season for goat, sheep carobou,
and moose remains the same as last ^
year. Forecasting a campaign to halt
the depredations of the black bear, the
Game Board has decided to leave.him
unprotected altogether. He will be ,
open for shooting during the' entire
year as a penalty for recent depredations on sheep and cattle.. Bears
had grown so numerous lately that
they are even;terrorizing school children in some districts, and the board
has decided to.let hunters reduce their
numbers.
The grizzly bear, however, is to be
given more protection, as he is regarded as a highly valuable game asset.
Instead of two, the bag limit for grizzles this year will be one, for the entire
season, the dates of which remains as
in 1927.
,,..Sportsmen and others interested are
asked by the Game Board to subrnit
their recommendations on these tentative seasons as. soon as possible.
In two weeks the board will either
adopt these regulations finally or revise them in accordance with the views
of. sportsmen. The decisions announced to-day were based on the representations made to the Game Board.

PREVENT  FOREST  FIRES
The people of Canada can hardly
realize how fast fires and axe have
eaten into Canada's forest resourses
during; the', present generation. Forestry experts state that of what was
a primeval forest ho farther back than
1810, practically untouched by the axe
little more than one-quater now remains.-
In Eastern Canada comparatively
little, timber/ of really prime sawmill
quality-is left and it is stated that'70%
of such timber in Canada now stands
in British- Columbia. In this province
also the work pf devastation and waste
is going on at a much faster ratio than
the, annual growth?
'.'j&great area of forest land still re
mams to the north- of the populated
parts of most of the provinces, - but
this forest consists largely of spruce
nad other woods required for the great
pulp and paper industry. This forest
of recent years has come to feel full
force of the United States demand for
newsprint paper. It provides a very
big factor in our list of profitable exr
ports, but foresters, point out we are
cutting and burning at a rate that will
exhaust our accessible timber supplies
in twenty-five years.
These experts say that with proper
regulation as to^ cutting,reforestration
and._protection fronr fire, it.is possible
for* Canada to have her forest industries in perpetuity. Fire has ��� always
taken greater toll then the axe. Fire
prevention, the forestry men say, is
the only salvation; .
Forest fire fighting methods are
being inproved.'--. The aeroplane has
been called, into requisition to locate
fires at their first outbreak and thus
prevent-fire ^spreading beyond control.
But experience has proved to Canada's
cost that fire; fighting is not nearly as
simple as fire prevention-. Every single
individual whose business or pleasure
takes him or her into the woods, must,
while there, be inpressed with one idea
above all others and that is to prevent forest fire,
To that end the Hon. Charles Stewart
originated an annual Canadian Forest
Week in order to provide educational
emphasis at the beginning or the dan
gerous dry season.
peare's audiences would have had in
their minds when listening to the many
references to tennis that occur in his
plays.
Open-air tennis continued popular
throughout the time of the Stuarts;
but with the Puritan tyranny, \vhich
set its sour, harsh face against aii enjoyment ancl all sport, tennis languished, and as a popular game, Mr. Law
says, it almost died out for a long time;
but not entirely. It enjoyed a fitful
popularity even in the dull, heavy, unsporting period of the early Georges;
and by the end of the century it had
so far revived that we find a writer in
1793 anticipating the plaint that
"patball" was interfering with tho playing of cricket���complaining that
"field tennis threatens ere long to bowl
out cricket. The former is patronized
by Sir Peter Burrel, the latter has
for some time back been given up by
Sir Horace Mann.
Such being the meaning of the word
���'tennis" throughout English history,
why, Mr. Law asks, should we prefix
the word "lawn" to it? If there is to
be a prefix he prefers "Close tennis."
Says Game Italo-French
Another correspondent declares that
tennis, such as is playe,d at Hampton
Court, Prince's, Lord's, and other places in England and at Fontainebleau,
Paris and Bordeaux certainly made its
way from Italy to France, and the ter-'
minolcgy is distinctly of Italo-French
origin (caccia, chasse, chase, for instance). The game was first played
with the palm of the hand; hence the
name "jeu de paume"; then with a
leather glove. Subsequently the glove
was made into a leather frame and
strung and called tamis ("sieve"),
"jeu de paume au tamis". It' is as
likely as not that the word "tamis" is
the truo origin of the word "tennis."
The first rackets were made of wood,-
"battoir", hence cricket bat; subsequently of a frame covered with parchment. Thus St. Evremond writes of
one made out of the fragments of
some passages of Livy, now lost to the
world. >
Originally, there were two kinds of
tennis played���"la courts paume" and
"la longue paume." The first was'
always played in an enclosed, if not
always covered area. In England it
became known under the name of
court tennis. Two varieties existed,
"le jeu carre" and "le jeu de dedans";
the latter alone survives. "La longue
paume" was played .in the open on
two varieties existed���"le jeu de terre"
and "le jeu enleve."
All this, it is declared, goes to prove
that tennis is a generic term for kindred games of ball. What made the
evolution from field tennis to lawn
tennis possible was the introduction of
the hollow rubber ball in substitution
for the esteuf or hard tennis ball made
of cloth or cotton. This would not
have been resilient enough to bounce
off grass- surface. Field tennis has
died of old age; its demise may have
been hastened by the birth of its young
rivel, "lawn tennis."
The prefix "lawn" to the game
_known!as_lawn~tennis-has,-since-the
introduction of hard courts, become
partly a misnomer It "appears logical
and. fair to one correspondent that the
players on these hard courts should
substitute another prefix to the word
"tennis" than "lawn," provided it be
not the single word "court," which belongs by right and custom to an -older
variety of the game of tennis. Nor
should the single description "tennis"
be usurped solely to describe the younger game.
STERILIZATION  OF  DAHtY
UTENSILS ON THE FARM
TENNIS ���AND ITS ORIGIN
An interesting newspaper controversy is being carried on in England on
the subject of "Tennis" and ."Lawn
Tennis," that is to:say,.the closed court
game and the open and more popular
game. Sir Desmond O'Callaghan, who
started the discussion, wants to have
the closed court game called "Royal
Tennis," and he would let the open
game, which he regards as the younger,
keep the title "Lawn Tennis," that has
grown up about it.
Mr. Ernest Law, noted tennis historian of Hampton Court, and a. member of the committee of the Tennis
Court there, replies that open tennis is
the original and ancient. That played
in roofed-in-court's, he says, is only a
variant or variety, less than 400 .years
pld. The open air game had great popularity in Tudor times. Perlin, in his
description of England and Scotland,
published in 1558, records-of London:
"Here you. may commonly- see artizans
such as hatters and joiners playing at
tennis for a crown, which is not often
seen elsewhere," particular on a working, day," the edict against the common people���"the baser sort"���playing
the game applying only to the "Royal
ga,me" in closed courts. It would have
been' the open-air game that Shakes-
(Experimental: Farms Note.)
Of the various sources of contamination to which milk is "subject, the
dairy utensils have been definitely
established as one of the most serious,
capable, of contributing a high percentage of the bacteria found in milk.
Consequently the sterilization of cans,
pails or other containers cannot be neglected if milk containing few bacteria -
is to be produced. Thorough cleaning
is essential, but in itself is insufficient.
Steps must be taken to destroy as
many as possible of the bacteria still
remaining, if the keeping quality of
milk is to be proved.
For sterilizing, steam under pressure,
the most satisfactory agent, is seldom
available. In its absence, a sufficient
quantity of boiling- w^ter gives good results. Pails, strainers, etc., after* washing are scalded by pouring a pint of
boiling water of tho entire inner surface; cans are best treated by pouring'
in a quart of boiling water, replacing
the lid, and rolling the can along the
floor to ensure thorough scalding of
the inner surface. As the temperature
of the water drops over 50 degrees F.
during this operation, a fresh quantity
must be provided for each utensil.
Unless this is done, good results cannot
be hoped for.
Because of the saving in time and
fuel, chlorine solutions are being used
in some districts to replace the scalding treatment, and where used intelligently have equal or superior sterilizing efficiency. Cans and. pails are
carefully rinsed with chlorine solution
as in the scalding treatment, or immersed for one minute in a tank containing the solution. Either is satisfactory provided the utensils are well
washed and the chlorine solution is up
,to strength. Further details regarding
this method may be obtained from the
Division of Bacteriology, Central Experimental Farm.
following sterilization, unless used'
immediately, utensils should be inverted
upon a draining rack to dry. Except
during the cold weather, an outdoor
rack placed in the sun is desirable.
With free circulation of air, the utensils will soon dry, checking the multiplication of the few surviving bacteria
and ensuring that the benefits of the,
sterilizing treatment will not be lost
through further development of bacteria in the moisture inside the utensils.
Explained
A certain drunk, taken to the police
station recently, was never booked because he gave the night squad the best
laugh they've had in a long time.
'���'How did you happen Jto be lying
there in the gutter?" demanded the
sergeant severely.
" 'Sail right, boss. I jus' happened to
walk between two lamp posts, and
leaned against the wrong one," was the
candid reply.      a.
-Hard on the English
An English girl was present when
this conundrum was asked: "How do
you make a Maltese cross?"���the
answer of course being, "You pull its
tail."
The English girl didn't smile. Finally she said:
"Well, of course, it's because I'm
English and all that, but really I cannot see any similarity between a Maltese cross and a pullet's tail." -
Johnny's Role
In an infants' school the teacher told
the children to play at imitating animals They were soon very busy, some
were horses, some sheep, some cows
and pigs. In fact everyone was trying
to imitate some animal.
Little Johnny, however, was sitting
very still in a corner. ;
The teacher, thinking he was not
well, said to him: "Now, Johnny, why
don't you play?"
Johnny said: "Hush! teacher, hush!
I am a hen laying an egg."

Hobbs: "I understand you've got rid
of your loud-speaker."

BROODING   AND   FEEDING
(Experimental Farms Note.)
When the chicks have become thoroughly dry after hatching they may be
removed from the incubator ancl taken
to the brooder.
In doing this care should be taken to
see that the chicks do not become
chilled. A basket lined with flannel
with a loose flannel covering makes a
good carrier.
The hover should be heated, so that
the introduction of the chicks will raise
the temparature to above 100 degrees.
This will mean 90 to 95 degrees in a
compartment brooder, or where colony
stoves are used 95 to 100 depending on
the number of chicks to be accommodated. The comfort of the chicks
is readily determined by. the sound or
lack of sound. When they are comfortable they will' be comparatively
quiet with only anoccasional contented
cheep, but if they are uncomfortable
they will quickly announce the fact in
a continual fretful discontented chirping. '
When preparing the brooders, if shavings or alfalfa leaves are used for
��� litter,. boards  on  which   to sprinkle
coarse sand or fine oyster.shell are
placed in the pens.
When the chicks are placed in the
brooders they should, be confined to
the brooding compartment, or if colony stoves are used a confining fence
should be used to keep them fairly
close to the. source of heatj and they
should be left alone until they show
positive signs of. hunger.   As it is heat
and rest they require-at this period,
rather than food, this will be when
they are about 36 to .48 hours old
. Ideas differ greatly on the- question
of feeding, not only in methods but in
rations.  Experience   at   the. Central
Experimental Farm has shown just as
good. results' from simple-methods as
from those more. complicated.   When
the chicks show positive signs of hunger hoppers of chick mash are placed
in the pens, as it takes several days
before the chicks become accustomed
to feeding from them at regular inter-
��� vals five times a day, small quantities
of the dry mash are sprinkled on the
feeding boards.   These are cleaned off
after each feeding, and as soon as the
chicks get used to the hoppers dependence. is> placed on them, and the
hand   feeding   abandoned.   Fountains
of water, and where possible, sour milk
is supplied, also hoppers of chick grit
and fine oyster shell. . When the chicks
are from ten days to two" weeks old
light feed of sratch grain are given in
the litter to keep them. busy.   Green'
feed���sprouted oats,  lettuce,  chopped
greens of various kinds are supplied.
This fee'ding is continued until the
chicks are old enough to go on range,
although _ if it is desired to bring the
chicks along quickly moist mashes are
used ��� after the first ten days to two
weeks.
The chick starter at the Farm is

Thrills Abound In War Film
A variety of thrills, powerful drama
and a love story of great charm and appeal are the features of "Forever After"
which is to be the attraction at Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, April 21st.
The story, adapted by Julian Joseph-
son and Paul Gangelin from an Owen
Davis stage play and directed by F.
Harmon Weight, is one of pathos, comedy, suspense and thrilling action.
Mary Astor and.Lloyd Hughes are
starred. Hallam Cooley, David Tor-
rence, Eulalie Jensen, Alec Francis and
Lila Leslie support.
The tale begins in a small New England town, shifts to a fast moving
sequence, of college life and athletics,
