"Nothing Can Stop Us.
Canada has boon honored in this year of ils Dkuuioiui Jubilee by another
visit from Lho IVmce oC Wales. On this occasion, however, ho is accompanied
by his brother, Prince George, and by Lho Right Honorable Stanley Haiti wiu,
Prime Minister of Great Britain. :
The significance of this visit will not bc lost upon the people of Canada,
nor, in fact, upon the British Empire as a whole. The easo with which the
peoplo ot Canada and the British Isles can exchango visits nowadays is
resulting in a more intimate knowledge of each oilier and.-is developing a
community of interest quite lacking not bo many years ago. Now it is almost
as easy for tho peoplo of Canada and Britain t'o visit each oilier as it is for
Canadians in tiie lho. Maritime- Provinces to visit, their i'ellow citizens
in British Columbia. �� -
The fact is thus being made known to the world that Canada occupies
* strategic position in the British Commonwealth of Nations. Us geographical
location in tho Empire, constituting 'it the main highway between the
Occident and tho Orient, must inevitably result in this Dominion being the
���real centre of thc Empire in the not so very distant future. And the development of trans-oceanic travel, by air will only serve to emphasize*.'Canada's
important jilaco  in   the  Empire.
Thus, for the first* time in history, a Primo-Minister of'Groat-Britain
Is able during his tenure of ofTlco to leave Britain and make au official visit
to ono of tlio overseas Dominion's. He could not possibly spare tho time'to.
visit any of tho other Dominions,   ft is an epoch marking event. ,
It is apparent that Mr. Baldwin, himself, is cognizant of whal the future
lias in'store. In an address before the Montreal Canadian Club shortly after
his arrival in this Dominion, Mr. Baldwin spoke in such optimistic terms of
Canada's future possibilities and greatness that, voiced by a native Canadian,
would hare left Lhe latter open to possible ridicule aud criticism .as being
Mr. Baldwin sees no limit to tho greatness of Canada's future. "Nothing
can stop you," he declared.. Canada, ho. wont on to say, must progress with
the world'u progress with the result that, some day "Canada uiay be������fclw.1
greatest, nation in the world."1
rfixly years of Confederation have proven oto Canadians'.and to. tlie world
what can be accomplished, and have established! the untold .possibilities o.f
the Dominion iu ;.1l those qualities and resources whicli go to make a. nation
great. Another sixty year:* may easily see Canada with a larger population
than the British Isles, with'manufacturing being carried on w I tli ri magnitude
as yet only dreamed of, ami surpassing in output tho great industries of-tlie"
Old Land., while at the same tune supplying in much* greater degree than
today the food requirements of the world.
Canada i.s only now.getting into.its stride.   It* is just on its feet, and on
thc eve of a development and expansion in all the major activities of tlie
world which will establish a new   world's   record,   in    national    growth.
Canadian foundations have been well.-and truly   laid.     They   are   strong
enough upon which to erect a magnificent structure, and it only remains for
the Canadian people to realize its possibilities,, and devote themselves with
patriotic devotion and. untiring energy * to the inspiring task- before them. -."[
���_.   The days of pessimism are past.   There-ueyer was any real cause -t6r
I hem, biu this Jubilee year has, thero'is reason to believe, finally convinced,
the people of. the'Dominion of this fact.   There has been a -great/awakening
of our people, ancl a new national spirit has been evoked, a new confidence,
born, and a pride and courage developed which in a comparatively few years
will work a veritable revolution in the growth of this Dominion. ...
Canadian., will do well to keep ever in mind the slogan of the National
Diamond Jubilee Committee "Canada Our Country," and to accent aa their
watchword the words given to them by Premier Baldwin, "Nothing Cau Stop'
���Us." In making Canada great and prosperous they will bo rendering the
finest possible service to the Empire as a whole and confer benefits upon the
world at large,' because, above all things, the Canadians are a borne Jovins,
peace loving people. They have the true conception of the new Interniitioii-
alisra which believes in the advancement of all peoples as the true policy of a
better world. .   * ....'*'���
Unique Device Patented
Rollers At Railroad Crossing Will
Prevent Accla��nts
As a means for preventing automobile accidents at railroad crossings,
an* Ohio inventor has patented a
roller device which ha3 proved effective under tests, says Popular
Mechanics Magazine. Thero are two
sets of rollers, each eighteen feot
long, installed in tho highway near
the rail approach. Thoy revolve only
one way and when the automobilo
strikes thorn, as a trafii is approaching, they turn, keeping the car from
going forward. When tho train
passes, a switch lo'cks the rollers so
that the auto can pro'ceod.

Names Often Confused
Tornado   Is  Twisting   Wind and   Cyclone Straight Air Movement
There is much    popular   confusion
as to  the diffeienc-3 between a cyclone and a tornado, says tho rath-
tinder. A tqi'inido is a violent, whirling'wind. The most conspicuous feature of tornado is a whirling black
cloud, .hanging from a mass of dark
storm clouds.    This   cloud   may   be
funnel-shaped or   ballponLsIi_iped   o'r
liko  Ihe.trunk of an elephant. It is
somewhat similar to a waterspout on
land and usually sweeps over a path
recently professors have
been discussing this 'brake' force and
attributing it.to the moon, but, there
are astronoMers of no mean roputa-
lion wlio enrertahi doubts regarding
this theory.
"Somc may suggest that tiie error
in calculating llie arrival of the last

Something To Be Proud Of

The British    record    iu .long-distance flying is something to be proud-
of. We have to our credit the first

Empiro flights by Sir Allan Cobham,
and the magnificent non-stop attempt
to India    which    synchronized    with
Colonel Lindbergh's   Atlantic   crossing.'   Vet to a great extent, becauso

Mary Pickford, who comes to the
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, Aug.
13 th, in her latest United Artists Corporation production, "Little Annie Roo-
ney" used about fifty, children in the
picture. ,
Excepting in a few scenes, these
children were all boys, and Miss Pickford was the leader ,in all their fun
and devilment.
When it was announced that Mary
would make a picture using so many
children, the gates of her studio in
Hollywood were stormed by fond mothers, all seeking to have their children
in Mary's new production.
Those that were finally chosen out
of hundreds who applied felt very fortunate indeed. They idolized Mary, and
in scenes where a kids, "gang" fight
was staged, it was with difficulty that
Director William Beaudine could get
the boys to really fight with Mary.
Their kicks and blows were usually so
gentle that the scenes would have to
be retaken.

Away back in the late sixties thousands
of acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per ac��e, which looked
like a fair price���then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average litelime.
What the young growth of today will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire and
