Tlie animal meeting of tho Hospital
Society was hold in the Bank of
Montreal Building at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 9th. Thoso present were.:
T. M. Gulley, G. S. Walters, Major
Gray, Mrs. ltoyce, Mrs. King, Mrs.
Newmarch, Dr. Francis, H. T. New-
march', G. W. A. Smith and Charles
The minutes, of tho 192(5 annual
Hireling were, read and adopted.
Tho Financial Report was pre
sented by the Secretary-Treasurer,
Charles King. .He stressed the difficulty in collecting the accounts of
patients'treated ab the Hospital, the
amount of outstanding accounts was
.$2,350.00,- and in spite of this the
Hospital was sound financially, the
full liabilities were $1365 00, the City
of' Greenwood being the highest
creditors with an amount due thorn
for light and water of $296.00. In
February last the Board of Directors
considered it advisable to consolidate
the outstanding debts of the Hospital
and pay them off, a loan was made at
the Bank of Commerce of $800.00,
payable back at the rate of $50.00 per
month carryingS% interest. This left
a balance due to the bank of $750.00,
Lhe otlier liabilities consisted -of coal,
and general supply accounts; the
assets were made up of $32.30 cash on
hand ancl estimated half of the outstanding accounts at $1620.00 which
amount seemed collectable. This left
a balance of $293.13, which proved the
Hospital was sound financially.
The Sec.-Treas. reported as to the
expenditure on the new Hospital,
stating that there had been $8,000.00
expended on the building, $300 on
furniture, $840.00 on equipment "'and
$575.09 on the operating room equipment and these amounts have' all
been paid.
As.to operating expenses, the average cost per patient had been $3.59,
a great deal of the cost of equipment
was included in this charge; 233
patients had been treated, with a total
of 2221 Hospital days treatment; 194
patients had been cured; 23 improved;
4 sent to Kamloops and 6 deaths.
There had been 28 X-Ray examinations and 82 anaesthetics g'iven.
The annual revenue from all sources
was $7,063.18 and the expenditure
$7992.60. Cash in bank January 1st,
1926, $356.20. Cash on hand December 31st, 1926, $62.31.
The Sec.-Treas. stated that- he
trusted the directors and general public would, appreciate this statement"
aud .wished to, inform the general
public'- that"' any ""member���of-the,
Hospital Society might examine the
books of the Hospital at the Sec.Treas.
The Financial report was accepted.
Dr. Francis, as superintendent of
the Hospital, stated that the Sec.-
Treas. report had covered the working
of the Hospital to a great extent, but
he would like to state that he considered the class of work done at-this
institution would compare favourably
with that done in larger cities. There
were two doctors always available and
they could consult together on any
case needing consultation. Operations
were conducted successfully covering
sidered was an institution that the
people of the District should be proud
of. The entirely new staff of matron
and nurses he considered capable and
The President, T. M. Gulley, remarked as to the date of the annual
meeting, as it should have been held
at the end of the year 1926, bnt this
date was not convenient for the
directors living outside of Greenwood
and he suggesten that the date should
bc altered.
It was unanimously decided that the
annual meeting should be held on the
third week in April ancl this change
bo made in the By-Laws of the Society.
The President stated that according
to tbe By-Laws the. whole Board of
Directors automatically retire and a
new Board could be elected. He remarked that the present Board had uo

eil'orts that had been made to secure
had not met with success.   He

then called upon the Society to elect
a new Board of Directors.
Dr. Francis considered the present
Board was very representative of/the
District and efficiently handled all the
work of the Hospital and he moved
that the present Board of Directors
and officers be, re-elected en bloc.
Mrs. Newmarch remarked that she
oonsidered the present Board-should
be congratulated on their efficiency
and wished to second the motion,
which was put to the meeting and
and carried. /
Major Gray regretted the inability
of the District Directors to be present
at all the meetings and he construed it
as a compliment to the Cit'v Directors,
as he representing Kettle Valley
might say, he considered the Hospital
business was efficiently managed by
the active Directors and he knew the
District as a whole were quite satisfied.
Dr. Francis brought up the subject
of an annual celebration of the opening of the Hospital, somewhat on the
lines of the Florence Nightingale Anniversary. He suggested that a day
could be arranged early in May and
that sports of different kinds should
be held, terminating with a grand
dance, and he begged to make a
motion to that effect.
.Major Gray seconded and promised
to help all he possibly could to make,
the day a great success".
The President considered the matter
well chosen aud to guarantee its sue

Rod and Gun Club Busy
The Greenwood District Rod
and Gun Club have made application for the stocking of Kettle
River with Kamloops trout and'
the re-stocking of Long Lake also.-
with Kamloops trout.   The fishw
eries inspector commented . very '
favorably on the results of the two
previous years stocking Long Lake,
20,000 fry for each year having
been placed there. There'is every
reason to think .that the application will receive favorable  consideration   from   the   Fisheries'
Department, and the promise has
already  been received   by   the
Club's Secretary, Major R. Gray,
that' Boundary Creek will  this
spring be stocked with Eastern

Chinese Women Progressive
Are Becoming a Factor in Readjustment of Their Country

Celebrating-Canada s Jubilee
The celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of Confederation should be
-well and fittingly observed by all citizens throughout, the length ancl breadth
of the Dominion, and no' community however small should fail lo lake
advantage of this historic date to review the progress of the country and to
strengthen in the minds of all, especially the young, a determination to
render worth-while servico to Canada and mako it a still belter land in
which (o live and a real power for good among the nations of .tlio world.
A strong national committee has boon created by Parliament to give
direction to this celebration in its largo national aspects, and Provincial
committees aro iu process of formation in each of tho nine provinces. The
chief national ceremonies will, of course, bo held at Ottawa, the Federal
capital, ancl it is proposed that in each of llie provinces striking ceremonies
should bo held at the provincial capital cities. But every city, town, village
.and hamlet should likewise organize to commemorate the event.
While in the observance of this diamond jubilee,' sports, concerts, fireworks, and other forms of recreation aud pleasure will and should find a
place, it is to be hoped that something of a more lasting character will be
done or inaugurated that -will materially assist in tho continued and greater
development of Canada and advancing it along the path to true national
greatness and strength.
The Dominion-wide oratory contest no"w iu progress in the schools of the
Dominion under tlie auspices of leading daily newspapers is a concrete
example o!f what we have in mind. Id is educational, inspirational, and
��� cannot fail to induce a true pride in Canada and its achievements, and help
to promote a fine and helpful "national spirit. The study which participation
in this contest imposes on lliousauds of students will leave a .lasting
"impression, while the training in public speaking that results will prove a
real asset to the Dominion.
A suggestion has also becn advanced that tiie national committco should
create a national prize in literature to be awarded each year lo the best
Canadian literary production of the year. Such award might fittingly be
announced on each succeeding Doiniuion Day. A really -worth-while" prize
would undoubtedly havo tho effect of encouraging a higher standard in
Canadian literature.
Cannot tlie idea wliich prompted this suggestion be extended to include
���each community throughout tho Dominion? Most of our cities, towns and
villages experience a lack of something ol' a public nature wliich could easily
be provided at comparatively small expense if the residents would unite thcir
efforts in making provision for it. Some lack a community centre; in orhers
the absence of a public library is a real losa to tho peoplo; some places have
as yet Tailed to make adequate provision, possibly no provision at all, in the
shape of parks or playgrounds; many liave neglected to plant trees or
create beauty spots to' improve the appearance of the community in which
thoy pass their lives.
What could be bettor prove, a more fitting observance of Canada's jubilee
than the creation of a  Confederation Dark, a Jubilee Library, n  Canada
���Community Hall, or a Confederation   Avenue   of   trees,   o'r   something   of
beauty or of public service along somewhat, similar lines?
The above suggestions are merely intended to direct attention to ihc
idea and to provoke consideration of it. Each community will be aware of
its most pressing need, ancl of its ability to supply that need. Each
community, no matter how small in numbers, can do something. AU that^
.is necessary is lhat some thought and consideration be given to the matter,
and one or two "live" leaders can quickly secure tho cooperation of all, with
the result that something really valuable^ and of lasting'benefit will result
in commemoration of tho Diamond Jubilee of Confederation.

Paid   ito   Young    Russian
Photo Machine
A young Itu.ssian photographer of
socialistic leanings came to New
York three years ago with pockets
empty of money, but villi a mind
aflame with an inventive idea.
Today this Itussian idealist, Anatol
Josepho, of New York, has ?l,000,000
iu cash because his idea has been
translated into tortus of money.
In payment for the invention, which
resulted from the idea, Henry Mor-
gcnlhau, former United Slates Ambassador to .Turkey, acting as "the
head of a syndicate of about a dozen
Now York business men, handed
Josepho a check for ?1,000,000 in the
Sulgrave. Hotel, Park Avenue and
07th Street.
The stroke' of Lhc pen that transformed Josepho within a few seconds
from a struggling photographer to
millionaire did not, however, change
bis' socialistic conviction. He plans
to use half of the million for charity
ancl part of the other half to asisst iu-
venlors like himself.
'lhe device tliat. brought Josepho
the million is the little-automatic machine that takes a strip of photographs
for 25 cents.
Josepho conceived tbe idea of the
machine when ho had a sniall studio
in China, and eked out a bare existence by making cheap "ping pong

Vitaglass Is Newest Idea
Does Not Exclude Ultra-Violet Rays
Like Window Glass
Scientists have discovered, at a
date if somewhat belated, that glass
windows, from the standpoint of
health, are one of the greatest evils
from which humanity suffers. Thoy
do act as a preventive to cold winds,
draughts and clamp, but they only give
the illusion of light and warmth. The
Medical Research Council corroboi-
itos tbe fact that when light passes
through a window of ordinary glass it
is entirely robbed of the beneficial
ultra-violet rays. It gives a sensation
of Varmih, but, apart from this, it can
have no effect on bodily efficiency and
The remedy exists, however, foi
both light and the ultra-violet rays are
provided by vitaglass, the. invention
oi" a Birmingham scientist, Mr. E. E.
Lamplough, It has been installed in
several hospitals in Great Britain and
in the Smithwick Borough Council
Schools. Tho installation, it is claimed, has had remarkable results on tlio
health of tho pupils.
The Morning Post says that vitaglass possesses the property of transparency to tho curative ultra-violet
rays of natural light. Wo quote:
"Up till quite recently it had been
found that quartz or fused silica were
tlio only known substances Lhat possessed-this properly of transparency,
and their high cost had rendered fhe
possibility of their application to windows quite prohibitive. The cost of
vitaglass is, however, very little moro
than ordinary ^window glass, and so
tlio question of its installation in factories and industrial centrbs becomes
of considerable interest.

Canadians Heavy Tea Drinkers
Dominion Stands Fourth Among
Nations of World in That
Each Cauadian drinks over four
pounds of tea per yoar, or practically
five-times as much as our American
cousins to tho south of us. Great Britain .(including Northern Ireland)
leads fhe world in point of consumption by using yearly over 400 -million
pounds (nearly , S% pounds per
capita). Then comes the Uniied
Slates with 100 million, but only nino-
tcnths of a pound per capita. Next
comes-Australia with 49 million, and
Canada with 36 million. ��� No reliable
statistics are available for China or
Russia. Both these countries consume
a large amount of tea, but the per
capita, is very small. A great deal
more tea would bo used on this continent if the public were educated to
demand fresh tea. Old tea is flat-and
unpalatable. Tea is a very delicate
vegetable growth, which deteriorates
unless kept sealed. A b.ottle of ginger ale soon loses its flavor-if exposed
to tho air. This is exactly what occurs iu the case of tea.

Strong and Provided With Means
' for Observation
A padded cell to protect people
from loose nuts, though not of the human variety, has just been completed
at the works of the Metropolitan
Vickers Electric Company, of Manchester, England. It-is a protection
not only against loose ,nufs," but
against bolts, gears and screws ah

is. liable to fly to pieces under tin?

When a piece of such machinery is
completed, it is tested in the chain

walls nine feet six   inches   in   thickness, composed oi' wood, steel, bags of
sand, air cushioning space and reinforced concrete.   It is large enough lo

devices and fast cameras. In addition,
by means of a hole bored through   it
shaft, a special telescope permits ac
tual scrutiny of flu* interior of a moving part.
Tho need-for such protection is emphasized in a recent issue of the
scientific magazine, Nature, where il

Tlio  "Iron Library", of .the British
Museum, with its '1,000,000 irreplaceable'volumes, is in danger of collapse
because of the increasing woighl   ot

'J'he matter is oi such urgency that

The "Iron Library" surrounds the

forty-six miles of shelves,, and the

Men Who Take Unnecessary  Hazard
Value Former,More Than Latter
It may, be asked why men hazard
their lives in attempts to drive motor
cars at astounding   rates   of   speed.
They do not use  in those attempt*
automobiles such a.s   a.re    ordinarily
used for business or pleasure. The>
drive machines that arc especially designed and  built  for racing, lhat require the constant    care   of   skilled
mechanics, that aro e-vtroinely costly
to operate and lhat could'not bo employed in any transportation .service
ou highways.    The drivers of  those
cars travel .on race courses at speeds
at. \yhich no ordlnarry motor vehicle
could.be driven on the public roads.
Thus the men who pilot automobiles
at 200 niiles an  hour on speedways
seem to serve no purpose that is of
practical ���value at  tho  present time
and in. present circumstances. On tlio
other hand, they may lave helped and

From  Deck of Ships
To save, time, it is suggested that
Atlantic liners approaching their ports
should discharge small aeroplanes laden witli specially urgent mails and
parcels, or, in exceptional cases, even
passengers, n i,as already been
proved that aeroplanes can be launched from the confined decks of ships
by the catapult system.
II has been shown that aeroplanes
with no human beings on board'can
be propelled ou to objects thirty-flvo
miles distant, and it is expected that
this rango will shortly bo increased
to one hundred miles.

long period, is an unnecessary act of
cruelty. "While all the members or

Easter comes at a glad season
of the year. The festival itself,
is? both commemorative of the
resurrection of Jesus Christ and
as a memorial to the atonement
wrought by the death of the
Master upon the cross.
It is hailed with great acclaim
in all the Christian Churches of
-tho world. In Greek and Latin
and in the languages derived from
them, Easter was known as
"Padcha,"   "Pasch,"" "Pasqua,"
' "Pascua," "Paxues," etc., from
the Chaldee word, "Pascha," the
equivalent of the Hebrew
"Pcsach." T h e "Destroying
Angel's act is recalled by the same
name in "passing over" the households of the Hebrews: when he
f=mote the Egyptians, as disclosed
in the twelfth chapter of Exodus.
This year Easter will fall on
April 17th. The way by which
Easter is determined is that after
the first Sunday after the paschal
full moon���the fourteenth day of
the calendar moon, or the full
moon which happens upon or
next after March 21; and if the
full moons happens on a Sunday,
then'Easter-day is the first Sunday following.
As usual, the local churches will
observe Easter. It is an event
that the children and the grownups have learned to look forward
to with much pleasurable anticipa-

A New Easter Day
(Contributed with greetings froni California)
They have risen! out of their quiet yesterday, they've gone,
And today they're lighting with the foes of right;
Tomorrow they'll return, with garlands won ���
Having washed lhe foes flag and made it white.
Thev have risen! thcy who die do live,
Each one who fell and bled in death���
As a hero, in this cruel war did give���
A song, for us to sing with living breath.
Thcy gave their lives, a noble deed,
To plant their banner beyond the seas,
All writ in blood for men to read,
The foe is conquered, and thc world is free.
They liave risen! out of their quiet yesterday,
Who left their .homes and kin; strong in his might,
Theirs this glorious vision, a bright New Easter Day,
With banished thorns, and planted lillies white.
Men do not die, who vise to see the brotherhood of man
lSoyoiul the gloom of this world's starless night,
lly those who carry out the Masters cherished plan,
The foe is conquered, and-his Hag made white.
