Hospital Day
The Directors of the Greenwood
and District Hospital tender their
sincere thanks and appreciation
to all those who contributed so
much to the success of the Annual
Hospital Day held last Friday,
May 13th. Irrespective of the
day and the date every item was
a success.
��� The total amount realised was
$170.60. George Gray very kindly gave the whole of the two
nights Picture Show receipts, Miss
Renie Skilton and James Hallett
gave their services free. Mr.
Gray has always been most generous iri his support of the
Hospital and the Special Picture
Show selected by him was most
enthusiastically appreciated.
The Dance attracted a fine attendance, and a prettier collection
of young girls and good dancers
could hardly be found. The music
by theBush Orchestra was good,
a new instrument, the banjo, well
played emphasized the time.
The Supper was bountiful,
thanks to Beaverdell, Rock Creek,
Kettle Valley and Midway who
supplied more than was necessary.
The Greenwood Ladies of the
Auxiliary, under the competent
supervision'of Mrs. Royce, President of the Auxiliary, attended to
the service of supper with perfection. G. S. Walters, Vice-
President of the Hospital, arranged the whole proceedings, and
his never failing energy deserves
praise and appreciation.
The Hospital was open for the
inspettion of visitors and' tea
was on hand, served by- the
Matron and Nurses. The attendance of visitors did not receive the response anticipated,
but no doubt our many well
wishers will write to us expressing
their continued good wishes.
The Directors of the Hospital
would have inaugerated sports
and games, but other celebrations
coming, Jor,ward in the near
|futUre,-rsu^gested'^cur��ailtn"ent; but
probably the 1928 Hospital Day
will be more fully comemorated.

Our neighboring Mining Camp,
Beaverdell, continues its busy
existence, somewhat fascinated by
its problems but contented in its
ever increasing prosperity.
Everywhere is activity���the
motor trucks and the wagons, all
laden with their precious silver
burdens, rumble down the road
leading from the mines to the
railway and the road repair men
labor in their endeavor that the
road be kept in such condition
that the silver- stream may flow
down without interruption and
that the volume of necessary mining supplies may be carried back
to the mines. n
When the Kettle Valley- Railway train, grinds to' a stop at
Beaverdell station, the traveller,
very naturally, looks about in"
search of the town or village'
which bears such a picturesque
name. Instead of a town he sees
a row of ore bins on which are the
names, "Sally," . "Wellington,""
"Bell," "Beaver"���surely not a
pre-possessing sight from a. point
of beauty, but did he inquire, as
is often done, or were the information vouchsafed to him, he would
be startled to learn of the wealth
which passes thro these bins
annually.-   .
About one-half mile from the
railway, effectively hidden by a
screen of trees is the little.town of-
Beaverdell and in her seclusion, it
would seem, almost, as if she were
carefully guarding her secret of
wealth.   It is permissable'to say
that such is the case in one important respect and the wealth of ���
the mines is not of purer silver"
than is the spirit of helpfulness,
friendliness and good-fellowship, ,
which is the key-note of the entire Beaverdell Camp���a hardy
survivor of the "Old West."
The impression  that the four.
mines already mentioned are the-
sole source of activity in Beaverdell Camp, would be most mislead- .
ing asthefe are mining operations'
being carried forward on twelve
additional properties  and  these
operations must not be considered '
as of the least importance,' some
are  producing   ore,   others are
developing and preparing for production.
In conclusion, let it be said that
the word "wild-cat" is unknown
to Beaverdell. The phrase which
reaches the ears most often, in
that wonderful little camp is
"work and produce ore"���truly a
wrestle with nature to wiruher
precious gifts.

Western Canada Points tne Way
One of the moat notable gatherings-of the year, ancl oue ia wliich .aU tho
peoplo of Western Canada were particularly and directly interested was
tho international co-operative-wheat pool * conference held at Kansas City,
and at which representatives were present I'rom the United States, Australia,
Germany, Russia, as well as from the three great wheat producing provinces:
of Canada. ._        ;    ! '     ���
Wusiorn Canada was easily the outstanding and dominant factor at tha
conference. And rightly so because in three short years the farmers of th-*
Prairie Provinces have organized and developed   the greatest grain handing
co-operation in the known world.-   Their   success   has   been   phenomenal
eclipsing anything of a like character ever attempted in connection with
anv commodity.     Thev   can   speak   from   actual   experience   iu   definite
It is not surprising, therefore, that at tlie Kansas ..City.'conference tho
reports presented on behalf of the Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba
Pools,-mid their common central selling agency, were received with great
enthusiasm, and that the views expressed and suggelions advanced by the
Canadians commanded-respect-and gave, strength to the deliberations of the
Many of our own people have not yet grasped tlie full magnitude of the
operations of the wheat pool, nor realize just 'how much lias been
accomplished in the brief period of. approximately 1,000 days. Three* years
ago there was no' Canadian Pool. Today, to quote A,-J. McPhail, president
of the Saskatchewan pool and of the Central Selling pool, there is a
membership of 138,000 in the three provinces. In; 1921-25 the Canadian pool ���
handled 187,000,000 bushels of wheat belonging to its' farmer members and
27,000,000 bushels of coarse grains. The pool has representatives in all
wheat Importing countries and ships direct . to sixty European ports.
-It owns and controls* approximately 050 country elevators in the three
provinces with a combined storage capacity of approximately 22,000,000
bushels. At the head of the lakes the pool has six terminal elevators with a
storage capacity.around "18,000,000 bushels.and also* a 2,000,000 transfer house
at Buffalo. The pool is also operating terminal elevators at Prince Rupert
and Vancouver, while* plans are under Avay for large extensions to the
country elevator * systems in all the provinces. Since the pool, began to
operate it has paid its' farmer members < around half a billion dollars.
These aro truly remarkable achievements, but they do not tell the whole
story. Thc pool has .practically revolutionized the financing methods of oui-
Western farms: Instead of the farmer getting all his money in one bulk sum
every Fall, at which time every creditor roade.'immediate demand "upon him,
with thc result-that die,, was practically' forced"'to sell his' \vlies_i_. it the.-then,
prevailing price, and by all following the same.course glutting the market,
he now receives a first payment and several successive payments spread over
tho year. The result is not only orderly-marketing of the wheat biit orderly
financing on the part of the farmer. He is to an ��� ever increasing extent
conducting his-business' on cash rather than a credit basis. The system
has been of wonderfulassistance to the weaker, less business like farmers.
Equally important* has*-been tlie effect the pool has -had in,vrestoring
confidence to the farmer and to business interests generally throughout; the
west. It has given the farmers a feeling of independence and security hitherto
lacking. It has emphasized-the value of co-operation, and the strength that
is to be found in organized co-operative effort as contrasted with each man
striving ta work out his 'own problems and his own economic salvation.
Thc farmers of Western Canada have demonstrated the wisdom bf having
one great selling agency instead of one or two hundred thousand fanners each
selling individuality and in competition with eacli other. The object ofthe
Kansas City conference was to try and devise ways and means whereby the;
great wheat producing countries of the world could co-operate instead of
competingagainst each other.   Thc most cordial reception was accorded the

For Friendly Relations
Sir  Esme  Howard,   British  Amba^sa-
. dor to U.S., Addresses San
Francisco  Audience
A plea for continuation of friendly relations between the United
States and England, which have existed Tor more than 100 years, was
made by Sir Esme Howard, British
funbassador to thc U.S., at a banquet
tendered him by the San Francisco
Chamber of Commerce.
Referring lo the question of the
British war debt to the United
States, Sir Esme said:
"Wc have not run away from tho
debt and do not intend to, but if at
some later date you come to us nnd
say you think it would be advisable
in tlie general interest to reconsider
the question���well, 1 won't say that
we shall refuse."
"There is the attack that has been
made in certain quarters against the
British Government over tho question of cruisers," he continued. "It
was agreed at the Washington conference that unless submarines of all
powers wero abolished, Great Britain
must reserve her full freodom of action as to cruiser construction. You
liave already passed us in destroyers
and submarines and no one in England had thought of accusing you of
violating the letter or the spirit of
the 0-5-3 ratio clause of the Washington Treaty."
Sir Esme declared Great Britain
had unjustly been accused of a sin-
-isier dfisire to hold ihe "poor Chinese- in perpetual bondage, thus driving a wedge between England tuid
this counlry."
"Our whole aim in the past," he
declared, "so far as I can see, has
been to obtain the right of trading
frcoly witli China."
Asthma Doesn't Wear Off Alone.
Do not make the mistake of waiting
for asthma to wear away by itself.
While you are waiting the disease is
surely gathering a stronger foothold
and you live in danger of stronger
and yet stronger attacks. Dr. J. D.
Kellogg's Asthma Remedy taken
early, will prevent incipient condition from becoming chronic and
saves hours of awful suffering.
Peking or Pekin
Former Spelling is Closer to Chinese
Version Than .Latter
A new war lias been declared here
���but this time it is only an orthographic war, directed against the
French spelling "Pekin" when referring to the Chinese capilal in American or English periodicals.
Those interested in the matter
point out to foreign correspondents
that "Pekin" ln no wise represents
the regular ��� pronunciation either in
China or abroad, save in France.
Chinese here say "Bay-clung," the
two syllables meaning "north" and
"capital" respectively, while tho
spelling "Peking" is���though unsatisfactory���closer to the Chinese
version than is any form in which
"g" is omitted. There are several
other foreign varieties, but the
French is the only oue which occurs
"generally~~in corn petition "with���the
favored "Peking" form.

Correct   Time    Not   Recorded    Until
Discovery of Balance Wheel
Before the invention and manufacture of watches and clocks, our forefathers employed several devices for.
recording the hour of the day.
The sundial is the earliest instrument of Its kind, and sandglasses
were used from an early date.
Alfred tho Great used graduated
caudles, the burning of which marked
thc passage of time.
The art of clock and watch-making
is believed to havo originated in
��� The early watches were mado in
curious shapes, such as pears, skulls,
purses and crosses. Some were set
in the heads of canes, some in bracelets and other pieces of jewellery.
These instruments had to be wound
at least twice daily, and differed from
the correct time by about an hour a

She Has the Greatest
Faith In Then?
Says Mrs. Elliott of Dodd's Kidney
Alberta Lady Strongly- Recommends
the Use of Dodd's Kidney Pills to
all Sufferers.
South Edmonton. . Alberta. (Special)���"I have used your Dodd's Kidney Pills for a few years and for
kidney and backache trouble they
have worked wonders. I have great
faith in them. I have heard great
praise about them from a number of
people in our district."
' This statement comes from Mrs.
Elliott, wlio resides at 9321 70th Ave.
Thc relief that Mrs. Elliott found has*-
come to thousands of other Canadian
women through the use of Dodd's
Kidney Pills.
There aro only a few people who
appreciate the great importance of
keeping the kidneys in good order at
all times. The kidneys are the purifiers of yotu: blood. If the kidneys
become-clogged with impurities they
cannot perform their functions prop-
perly. The blo'od, instead _ of being
purified, is poisoned, and' in "turn
-poisons the whole system, with the
result that a condition may develop
very serious.
It was believed, during the Middle
Ages that a child brought up without being taught any language would
speak Hebrew spontaneously.

The two-year ordeal which sho

"What I endured in that time could

I could hardly walk. My appetite was
poor and my stomach gave no end of
trouble. Gas and pains would bring
on fainting spells.
"My nerves were so completely
shattered that I jumped in fright
every time the doorbell rang. My
hand trembled so that it could not

after night I've gone without sleep,
too nervous to lie still for even a few
moments. Even my housework became too much for me.

Guarding Canada's
Wheat Reputation
Canadian    Product    Must    be    Kept
Strictly  Up t0  High Standard
The economic Importance of Can-

In    that    connection    is     necessary
when .discussing  the  advisability of

guard the reputation   of   this   basic

The , suitability oT -wheat varieties

[abroad must possess    certain    qualities before  it is  a  factor-in  world

���"The milling value of wheat js, after
all, the most important consideration,
jits protein content must be high; its
color must be right and  its baking

"Do'horns on automobiles prevent

"Any doubt as to the truth of

drive their cars without the aid o'f

that they would find themselves

a heroic struggle to save the life of her
friend, Patrick J. Dowling, Spokane
pioneer. O. H. Wells, "Bert" ��� to his
many friends, the only survivor.of the
motor boat disaster in the little North
.Idaho Lake, is sparing no eit'ort to recover the bodies of his Mends. Charles
Iluckins of the Seattle Marine. Patrol,
who lias been retained by Mr. Wells,
is coulident that the bodies will be recovered. However, a strong undertow, one hundred and. twenty-five feet
below the surface olVthe lake, is .so
great that little hope for the recovery
of the bodies is, held here by those
who know of the treacherous currents.
'Miss Jackson was sales .'promotion
manager of the Wells Chevrolet Company,' Jiunes Wbitelaw, vice-president
of the company, said yesterday. 'She
'was an unusually bright girl,' he continued, -and had worked herself up
from telephone operator' to stenographer and from that to promotion
manager, where she had an office of
her own and many responsibilities in
connection with the work. She had a
pleasant manner and her contacts
with the public made many friends for
our company."'
