The Annual Meeting of the Hospital
Society.cf the Greenwood and District
Hospital was held in the Eank of
Montreal Building on Saturday, April
21st, at-3 pan.   Those present were:
T. M. Gulley, Geo'. S.. Walters, Chas.

Legault, J. Richter, Geo. Boag, R. Lee,
Mrs. H. Pannell, S. B. Hamilton and
G. W. A. Smith. ' - .
Tho President, T. M.- Gulley stated
that lie was pleased to see so many
present, especially as the outlying district was well represented.   He regretted  that  owing  to  illness  Major  R.
Gray, one of the directors, was, unable
to  attend.   The   chairman   remarked
that the meeting would be open fof
discussion on any matter pertaining to
tho Hospital and its, interests, and he
would welcome any suggestions of a
constructive nature.   There was a certain procedure that must be followed
out;and the first business would be to
read  the  By-Laws,   which he  called
upon  the  Secretary  to  read.   No.  8
By-law called for,a $1.00/the amount
of the annual subscription, and this
brought a' ready response, as 16 new
members joined.
After the minutes of the previous
annual meeting were read and adopted,
the secretary-treasurer read the Financial report.   He pointed out that if the
patients' fees were paid the financial
standing of the Hospital would be more
than satisfactory, but as accounts were
hard and sometimes'impossible to-collect arid the public subscriptions did
not cover the unpaid bills.   The actual
expenditure and receipts for the year
showe'd "a loss'of $102.65!" 'The amount
of loan .at the bank and accounts payable todate amounted' to $978.00.   The
accounts   receivable   totaled   $1,159.00
which   amount   remained   after   der
ducting or writing off as uncollectable
about  $2,000.00.   Attempts  had  been
made by the local bank and Mr. C. F.
R. Pincott to collect these outstanding
accounts,  but  results -had not  been
satisfactory." The   secretary-treasurer
-wouId-be-pleased-to-'shpw~tHebookiTof
the   Society   to   any" member   who
would apply at his office.   The report
was unanimously endorsed.
The election of a Board of Directors
was the next order of business.' ��� T. W.
Clarke remarked that he considered
that the five directors v/ho had sponsored the note at tlie bank should be
re-elected/ He considered that these
gentlemen should be thanked for the
keen interest they take in the Hospital.
This motion met with general approval
and was unanimously passed. The remaining directors were re-elected.
The outstanding accounts, were read
by the secretary and. those .present
were surprised at the total amounts of
same.
Mrs. H. Pannell, a director/speaking
on behalf of the Midway residents,
stated that they did not want to'see
the Hospital closed but would do all in
their power to keep the institution go-1
ing.  It was the intention of the promoters of the Concert and Dance to be
held in Midway on May llth,; to turn
in some of the; proceeds on an account
on the Hospital books.   The chairman
thanked Mrs. Pannell for her remarks.
S. B. Hamilton spoke in reference to
tho 80 cents per day allowed-for each
patient by the Government.   He stated
that this : amount did not cover" the
cost, and people of, the district had
been given-to understand that this was
a Government Hospital.   He wished it
to be distinctly understood that it was
not.   Unless the proper fees charged
were not paid the Hospital, could not
carry on and would have, to be closed.
T. W. Clarke agreed with Mr. Hamilton and remarked that the Hospital
fees were arranged so that the institution could be run on a paying basis
and.if patients who could afford to pay
and refused to do so. proper action
should be taken to enforce payment.
T. A. Clark of Midway, asked as to
the appointment of a Superintendent
of the Hospital since Dr. A. Francis
had resigned. The President stated
that By-law No. 3 provided that the
appointment of all offices was in the
hands of the Directors.
It was suggested that the Annual
Dance to commemorate the opening of
the Hospital be again held in May
about the 18th instant.  After some
E. Hawkes returned home on Wednesday from the District Hospital.
.  Miss Helen Nystrom left by motor
on Wednesday morning to visit with
friends at Pateros, Wash.
The date of the Cpncert in Midway
has been changed from May 4th to
May 11th.   Keep this date in mind.

a number of teachers present at the

hold Sports at an earlier date, and on
this recommendation it was decided to
hold the' Meet on Saturday, May 19th,

spring and especially the' month of
April is" the best suited for a fire prevention appeal.
The first of these is that over tlie
grealer part of Canada the last week
in April immediately precedes the. period of greatest fire hazard in our forests. By that time the snow has almost entirely disappeared from the
woods and a succession of warm, sunshiny days is the rule. The hot rays
of the sun beating down on the forest
floor through the still leafless trees,
turn the dead grass, leaves, twigs, and
withered herbage from the last season's
growth to tinder, in which the smallest
spark may start a conflagration.   Du-
the succeeding two weeks the new ^1UJ11C) .wnue ��� later in the ' evening

HOCKEY CLUB DANCE
The dance given in the Masonic Hall
by the Greenwood Hockey Club on Friday evening, April 20th was an excellent one in every way.   The Hall was.
artistically    decorated    with    hockey
sticks in green'and white;  Japanese
lanterns   and   colored  lights.   Bush's

summer or early autumn but thit is
not usually as acute as that" occuring
in the spring.
The second reason for choosing the
month of April for the forest protection campaign is that at this time of
the year most people are planning their
vacations.   Increasing numbers both in
Canada and from abroad are making
.use-of- our-forested~areas~ fdfrecfea-
tional purposes and the necessity of
impressing them with the need for care
with fire in the forests becomes increasing great with the advent of. the
summer season.  Advice on the proper
location of camp-fires and the surest
way of extinguishing them;how to dispose of lighted matches, glowing cigarette and cigar stubs,, and live ashes
from pipes at this time will bear good
fruit during the sojourn of campers in
Canada's woodland areas.
The fact' that in the United States
the week of April 22-28 will be similarly observed with a forest protection
campaign is a further evidence that all
over the continent forest conservationists realize the advantage of making
their appeal in the spring of the year.
From the Mackenzie to the Rio Grande
the Governments of Canada and the
United states will lead in urging*great-
er care with fire in the forests: and a
closer utilization of timber resources to
the end that this great and valuable
heritage may be conserver for future
genarations.   '

FOREST FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
.; Clearing land in Canada was once-an
industrious habit. Eastern Canada
was a forest, and the first thing to do
was to grow wheat, potatoes and hay.
The forest was the enemy to be rooted.
Today, the people of Canada are awaking to the fact that the forest they
once regarded as an enemy is Canada's
second best asset, and furthermore,
that it is a rapidly-disappearing'asset.
White pine was once the .most commonly used lumber in this country, and
a.generation ago it was comparatively
plentiful and cheap. Not so today.
The original stands .of white pine are
��� nearly gone. For saw-mill timber we
now depend largely on spruce and fir.
Seventy per cent, of the timber 'in Canada of saw'-mill quality stands in
British Columbia! Eastern Canada,
once a forest, is now buying lumber
from the Pacific slope.
The accessible forests of Northern
Canada today are chiefly valuable as
sources of spruce pulp for paper-making. How long they will last, subjected to the present rate of exploitation
plus the ravages of forest fire, has been
calculated, and the resulting figure is
not at all reassuring. In twenty-five
years, unless Canada wakes up soon,
her forest industries, her lumber mills
=and=paper=mills=and=woodiworking-
factories, will be closed up. Because
her forests will be gone.
Canadian Forest Week calls attention to this situation and,to the obvious
remedy. If we can prevent forest fires,
the natural growth from year to year,
forestry men say, will provide for the
demands of axe. arid saw. The'Canadian people as awhole must realize the
great and increasing value of the forests of Canada which remain, arid
each individual must do his or her best
to prevent forest fires. Carefulness
and good management will save Canada's   forest   industries   in   perpetuity.
Hon. Charles Stewart, Minister of the
Interior, views forestry work as one of
his most important tasks, and not the
least important part of his effort is to
make the people of Canada realize that
forest fires can and must be prevented.
are willing to do some stunts with the
spade and hoe themselves.
We here in Greenwood so often hear
the remark "oh! if I only had something to do!" When there is a garden
to tend to many otherwise annoying
hours can be spent most contentedly
making flowers and shrubbs grow and
beautify ones homes.
DIRTY  EGGS   ARE
SPOILING   THE   TRADE
That one of the0 most aggravating
problems confronting the egg trade at
the present time is the far too frequent marketing of dirty eggs, is the
opinion of-W. A. Brown, chief of.the
poultry - division of the Dominion live
stock branch. Farmers should realize;
states Mr. Brown, that they can do
much toward improving the egg industry by taking steps to prevent the production and marketing of dirty eggs,
and by discontinuing the very undesirable practice of washing, eggs before
marketing. X [.
Under circumstances, it is inevitable
that a few slightly dirty or stained eggs
will appear. But the former who consistently produces and markets large
numbers of dirty eggs surely does not-
realize the bad effect of this practice
on his-market. These eggs are unpopular with consumers and in many cities it is almost impossible to sell them
at. any price.
Washed eggst,are even more dangerous to the poultry industry than dirty
ones. Washing destroys- the natural
protective bloom of the egg shell and,
the shell being damp, mould spores
often enter causing the egg to. become
unfit for food". ':
At the same,time it is not difficult
to prevent the production of dirty eggs;
What is needed; is an abundance of
clean dry litter on the floor, plenty of
nests, about one to every six hens,
clean straw in the nests, .and frequent
gathering of the eggs.
GARDEN PEAS
(New Introductions)
LINDY'S  PRESENTS
GARDEN TIME
Poets and philosophers tell of the satisfaction obtained from cultivation of
flower and vegetable gardens, but the
practice is not as general as.could be
wished. In many places there is much
less gardening than there , was some
years ago. People have too many
things they want to do with their
spare  time.
In many cities and towns, however,
the garden movement has been pushed
as'a community proposition. People
have been urged, in;a systematic way,
to decorate their grounds with handsome shrubbery and flowers, and some
of these communities have developed
an amazing amount of this beautification. ;
Such towns become noted, and every
minute of time put in on those flower
beds is no doubt paid for in the higher
value of real estate that is established
in such a town.-
As respects vegetables, the advantage
of the back garden ought to be obvious
in these times of high prices. The
children of the modern community do
not have enough sliare in the home
tasks, and it would do them good to
have some regular labors in a. garden,
and they could do a good deal of its
work.   But the old folks canot expect
We wonder if Lindy knows what has
been happening to him while he has
been flying around creating good,feeling among the Latin-Americans;
Gifts are piling up at an amazing
rate from all over the country, and, indeed, from remote parts of: the world.
There is a key to the city of Paris;
another to New York; and two keys to
London. Just why London should require two keys in: order to extend its

(Experimental Farms Note.)
For a number of years the Dominion
Experimental Station at Invermere has
been given considerable attention to
breeding and selecting green peas.
Some of the selections have shown their
superiority over many of the standard
varieties, not only at the Station, but
at many of the Experimental Farms
and Stations across the Dominion. Two
years ago some of these selections were
named "Bruce", "Kootenay" and "Director". In order to bring these
varieties more prominently before the
miblic a brief comparison with other
standard varieties is given, followed by
a description of the new varieties.   ��� v
The seed'of the different varieties is
Mie best obtainable and has been grown
on the Station arid the seed collected
in order that all seed should have a-
common origin before testing with
other varieties. The Lincoln Seed for
tinstance was obtained from Mr. Thomas
Lincoln, the originator of this variety,,
which, by .the way, is one of the best
oommercial varieties on the market
today.
The following is the four-year average yield of green peas from a 30-ft.
row:
Bruce 38 Vi pounds.
,   Kootenay 31 pounds.
Director 30 pounds.
Lincoln 281/j pounds.
Stratagem 24V- pounds.
Pioneer 22 V- pounds.
Thos. Laxton 20% pounds.
The above shows a distinct advantage for the new introductions, and the
quality is particularly good. A more
minute discription follows of the new
varieties :
Bruce. Height 45 inches; a wrinkled
blue; pods slightly curved and well
filled; excellent flavor; season late;
vines vigorous; short jointed; foliage
blue green.
Kootenay. Height 58 inches; wrinkled biscuit colored seed; pods slightly
curved; long and well filled with large
peas; very sweet; good color when
cooked. A handsome pea which will
be in demand for kitchen and exhibition; season, main crop; vines vigorous;
foliage green.
Director. Height 36 inches; wrinkled blue seed; pods well curved and
well filled;1 excellent flavor; season,
main crop; vines vigorous; resembling
Lincoln in habit arid growth.
The Experimental Station has a
fairly large quantity of these varieties
to be distributed at a nominal charge
of 25 cents,to cover postage and shipping. These varieties are not at
present obtainable through seed houses.

LEWIS STONE HAD
LONG STAGE CAREER
Lewis Stone, starred with Doris
Kenyon in "The Blonde Saint," to be
shown at the Greenwood Theatre on
Saturday, April 28th, has a long list of
stage success to his credit. And his
stage experience has been of great importance in his work before the camera.
It was in 1900, following his discharges, as an officer in the infantry
at Ehe close of the Spanish-American
war, that Stone started on the stage.
He dramatized a story by Ray Stannard
Baker and submitted it to A. Q. Scam-
mon,- a New York producer.' Scammon,
however, was more impressed with
Stone's dramatic reading of the play
than the play itself. So he induced
Stone to join the cast of "Sidetracked,"
a successful show on the road. :
Stone's first New York appearance
was in "The Great White Diamond"
at the Third Avenue theatre. In later
years in New York he had the role of
a beach-comber in the original cast of
"The Bird of Paradise."
A Cameo comedy is also included in
Saturday's program.

Federal Government provides 90%
of the money, the province 5%, and
the borrower himself the remaining 5%.
This years largest inflow of
settlers destined for the west recently arrived on two of the liners
of the Canadian Pacific fleet. Tliere
were 1082 on "the Montel aro and 800
on the Melita, the majority being
of British birth, thereby establishing a record for any individual
ship docking at tho Maritime Province ports this year.
A recent revision of the Customs
regulations now enables tourists to
bring their sporting equipment or
cameras into Canada without leaving a deposit on account of their
dutiable value with the Canadian
Customs officers at the border. At

spring sports are in full swing.
Vancouver.���Over 100 miles of
trackage serving the ports of the
Vancouver district will shortly
have-been laid by the Canadian Pacific Railway, according to a statement issued by the general superintendent of the district. The
trackage is designed to take care of
a steady and normal growth in
trade-through Vancouver and also
to handle expansion in westward
grain movement which- this year
has reached the record of 53,000,000
bushels.
, John Walter, co-propriotor of the
London Times with Major the Hon.
J. J. Astor, arrived in Montreal
lately where he addressed a gathering under the auspices of the National Council of Education. Mr.
Walter is covering the Dominion
over Canadian Pacific Railway lines
and will make addresses' in most
of the larger cities. He is the fifth
member of the family, being a
direct descendant of the famous
John Walter, to be guide of this
newspaper since 1785.
On a long trip from Ontario to
Brussels; Belgium, forty muskrats
lately left Canada aboard the C. P.
S. S. Marburn bound for Antwerp.
The final destination of these animals is a farm near Brussels where
they wi'M form the nucleus of a
muskrat farm. While handled by
the Canadian Pacific Express Company during the entire voyage, the
animals were fed two ounces 'of
oats and four ounces ~of carrots
daily with water once every two
days.
Saskatoon.���"I believe I - have
found a wheat which, when further
developed, will be greatly rust-

several times winner of the International wheat award. He went on
fjto^explain-that-altlhough���he���was-
quite sure that this new type which
he developed from tlie kiota strain
wouild protect crops .in the province
from rust damage, he did not think
that the wheat would be absolutely
free from rust under all conditions.
However, he considered from the
results of his experiments that
even under the" worst conditions,
such as those of 1927, this wheat
would never materially be damaged.
