of a highly satisfactory nature.
In all, some 530 feet of underground

(By Kay Martin, late of Rock Creek)
A real laugh and a true laugh is full
of so many things:
It holds the scent of fresh-mown hay,
the joy of all, the springs.
The   rustle    made   in   dancing   by
crumpled new-born leaves;
The reapers' songs in "harvest fields
when piling up the sheaves.
There   is   sunrise-glory   in   it,   the
sunset's glowing hue;
There's the glory of the summer, when
all the sky is blue.
The   harmonies " of   sun-lit   streams
a-rippling o'er their, stones,
The grandeur of the storm-winds, the
zephyr's soft, sweet tones.
Full often, all unknowing, what gave
the laugh its birth,
A soul by sorrow darkened, finds fresh
sunshine in its mirth.
The following taken from a Nevada
paper tells the' sad story of- the death
of; Pauline Putzel in Thompson, Nev.,
on October. 24th.
Pauline Putzel, eight years old. was
burned to death when a cottage in
which she and her mother, two sisters and two brothers were sleeping at
Thompson, was destroyed by fire last
Monday, night.   The father and another  brother  were  working  at  the
Thompson smelter at the time.   Louis,
22 years old, and brother of the dead
girl, made three attempts to save his
sister   from   the   blaze,   but on   the
third attempt was overcome and fell,
out of the house through a window.
He is now. in a critical, condition; at
the.   Yerington    hospital.   Physicians
have  amputated  one  finger and all
the flesh is gone from one hand, but
it is believed that the boy will recover.
' Pauline was dragged from the burning house , by  William Swalley,  who
managed to reach in through a- window
and grasp the child.- She lived for an
'The origin of the fire is not known.'
All  of  the  family, were asleep,  and >
were" awakened   and  helped  out' by
neighbors.   The mother, was burned on
the back and.feet.-. ������.>������'
Pauline, the "youngest' of- six.' children, was born in British Columbia.
The family had come to .Thompson
from Kennett, , California, about a
year ago. The house, which was the
property of the Thompson Smelter
Company, was completely, destroyed.
Funeral services for the little girl
will be held in Yerington at St. Jos- ���
eph's church Thursday.
L. J. Putzel, father of the yo,ung girl,
is well known in Greenwood, having
lived here for many years, prior to
leaving with Mrs. Putzel and family
for California.

A Good Deed
���it waa our pleasure, says a writer lu a New York paper, to meet with tho
Boy Scout spirit, fully matured, aboard a*.Long Island train recently, At oue
��� of the stations the gentleman.-seated-In "front of us accidentally dropped a
������glove, out the window just as tho train started to move out. Withwht o
.moment's"hesitation ho tossed tlio other oho after it. Moved by curiosity, wo
dropped aii reserve to ask Mm why he had dono so. lie courteously explained
_that the one glove that remained would have done'him no good; nor would
��� "tho lost glove have done the'finder'any good. This being llie case, hc had
tossed out the other, so that tho finder might have a complete set.
The'viewpoint and line of conduct of this man.might well servo as an
���object lesson to many, adding contentment'in their own lives aud conferring
benefits on others.      The-average person, it is to he feared, would have
.crumbled and bemoaned his loss,���small though it.be,���and generally made
himself and possibly others miserable for a time, aud all to no end. But tho
hero of this little incident, which might have passed unobserved, enjoyed a
brighter outlook on life aud a finer conception of things generally. He had
sustained a loss which, under the circumstances existing, could not bo
restored, lie realized on the Instant that he must accept ihat los_s. Ills
immediate thought was as to how his loss could be turned to somebody's
1C in lamily and community life aud activities tho spirit displayed hy this
��� unknown man became the inspiration of our thought and the guiding motive of
our actions, how much happier this old world would become. Whal contentment
of spirlt'-'and real joy in living would be experienced hy those who adopted
and followed such a policy of unselfishness, resulting in an inner gain of
satisfaction far outweighing the outward and material Joas sustained.
Such a spirit and code of conduct costs nothing, and how much more
satisfactory all round it would be to that usually followed lo'whlch a loser
determines that if he must lose, or has lo'st.ho will at. least liave the sails-
iaction,���poor though ir. be,���that nobody shall be the'galncr thereby.
.There arc people no doubt .who..-'arc Inclined to belittle and scoff at'lho
insistence with which members ofthe Boy Scout organization are taught to be
watchful for opportunities for helping others in. order that they may do at
least one fcood turn a day. But if such people would strive for just one wee:-:
to emulate these Scouts and do good turns to others, thcy would quickly
discover a-new richness and joy in .their, own'lives'.while at the same time
happiness and gain would bo conferred tfn others.
The peoplo of Canada have just observed a day of-National Thanksgiving
and in a few weeks all Christendom will be joyously celebrating- the happiest
day in all the year, Christmas. Many may have sustained losses and (suffered
dofeats'Jn the months that are passed without making the slightest effort to
extract such profit as they could from their loss and without turning defeat
into ultimate victory. Possibly thoy are still bemoaning tho sad fate which
overtook them, feeling sorry for themselves, and, declaring that luck is
ngainst them. Such mi attitude will avail nothing; it merely makes for
furtlier discontent, discouragement, and additional failure and loss. Such an
attitude, is taking tho joy out of their own future lives and malting for
unliappineKs and misery for others. ���   *    ,
Let thc dead past bury ils dead. Forget your losses and-disappointments
except as they can be capitalized to realize future gains, if not for yourself,
then for somebody else.   In the long run-this'.-will mean gain for ycu.

Aviation  Is Great  Factor  For   Peace
Says Designer and Builder
A million or'moro planes blackening tlie air over America, from flivver
pianos, in which tho young man can
lake his sweetheart for a rido in a
dual control side-by-side cockpit, to
giant nuiltimoiorod air transports,
wore pictured rby Anthony l-l. G. Fok-
kor, at a luncheon of the Netherlands
Chamber of Commerce of New York.
Mr. Fokker said the development of
commercial Hying was closely linked
with mililary aviation" and that
the nalions of Europe had realized Ihis. The subsidies granted to air
transport lines in Europe Cor commercial purposes, lie said, were part
of the general preparation plan for
future wars whereby pilots would bo
trained, and fields, hangars and workshops provided for future military
: use.
"Aviation is I hi? cheapest and most
eflicient method for killing people,"
Mr. Fokker said. "Id a city like New
York bombing planes loaded with gas
bombs could destroy a. million.persons
absolutely without fail. So important
will aviation be as aii offensive
weapon in another war ancl so' great la

Tells Why Germany Fail&if
Ex:Kaiser Says People' Did Not Sacrifice Enough
In an interview with George Sylvester Viereck, printed in Liberty, Willielm Hohonzollcrn, formerly German
war lord, tells why Germany lost the
"Because we did not obey God In
all things; becauso we hesitated to
bear the worst; because we refused in
the end to face all risks in preserving
faith! Tho Gorman peoplo performed
miracles of endurance, but at the last
they failed. The supreme miracle can
be accomplished only by faith. We
should have fought to tho very last
..carrot, the very last man, tho very
last rouud of ammunition."
Tho ex-smperor is a pretty ono to
talk about fighting to the last carrot!
tho Gorman peoplo had indeed performed "miracles of endurance." They
had sorrowed over their losses and
mumbled their black. bread patiently
enough. It was their leader, their emperor-king, who by Ids -midnight departure for Holland set them, the example of submission to stem fate.
Wilhclm had plenty of carrots. He
had caviare and champagne. He had
abundance while his people' starved.
He had millions in the midst of beggary. He had six tall sons, carefully
protected during a time when grass
grew" green on many new "graves. .For
him, now, to blame the German people for "hesitating to bear the worst,"
for "refusing ln the end to face all
risks," is,, perhaps, no more indecent
than might have been expected.���New

HoxiMt. B. Bennett, leader cr lho National Conservative Party, in an address at Calgary, beioro -100 of his

Hospital Shower
��� Wednesday, November 23rd, is the
day chosen by the Ladies Hospital
Auxiliary for holding the (Annual
Shower which in the past has proved
a boon to the Hospital as it gives an
opportunity for those who have the
welfare of this institution at heart to
make a delation on this occasion,
when perhaps at other times they are
away or have overlooked opportunities
of giving the help they really desire to.
iv The Hospital Auxiliary carries on its
steady and unobtrusive work all the
year round and- the ���* active members
deserve high praise for the wonderful
assistance rendered in the carrying on
of the large amount of charitable wo,rk
which seemingly falls to the lot of a
hospital,' which otherwise would be
self-supporting. A-review of the gratis
treatment accorded to indigent patients and in not a few cases to some
who' are not inclined to acknowledge
their indebtedness would give all and
sundry donors a thankful feeling of
having helped a great cause.
The Auxiliary is about to undertake
the renewal of much of the linen,
towels, blankets and dressings material besides providing further kitchen
necessities and comforts. In previous
times many kind ranchers in the outside districts who have had surplus
stocks of; vegetables, fruit, etc. have
delivered generous supplies and no
doubt this appeal will again bear fruit.
The Shower will be held in the Auxiliary Hall, tea will be served from
3 to 5 "p.m. -and Greenwood Theatre
will be the venue in the evening for an
' illustrated lecture by Rev. A. Walker,
and from which the* United Church
Ladies Aid and the Hospital Auxiliary
expect to benefit financially. Remember! ���*"--.��� 7"*'- '���'���'*.'
The humblest donation or volunteer
help in the past to this worthy branch
���o'f your hospital support whether
direct or to aid in raising funds from
dances, etc., is gratefully acknowledged
and the kindly spirit in which these
things have been done is further encouraged to this hard-working band of
News From Victoria
(Prairie du Chien Courier)
Considerable interest was aroused
here, by the arrival of two new Fords.
While' not ready for exhibition purposes, the Fords have been observed
by several and much approval of their
fitness and-finish have:been voiced..
Their' bodies are finely lined and
graced with pleasing curves. Their
.color job is of quality that shows richness and well .being, and their lines in
general are wholly fitted for the work
desired of them. Probably not without
reason the designs follows that of former models, but their are individual
differences. They are generally quiet,'
but there is considerable sound when
under heavy stress of exertion. < .
Their speed and durability have
not been tested, but their fuel consumption at least at the present time
is surprisingly low. Methods of caring
for the radiator overflow remain the
same. While formed ,on the same general principles there is much difference
which is not surprising when it is considered that one is a boy and the other
is a girl, born to Mr. and Mrs. Louis
Ford. The babies have not yet being
named, but they and their mother
are reported to be doing well.

Mr. and Mrs. John Bannerman, of

daughter, Mrs. Brown, fit Sooke and
Mr..and Mrs. Lamont at Saanich.
During the absence of Dr.0and Mrs.
MacLean a well known former resident
of Greenwood, Mrs. _,,-.��� J. H. , Willcox,
<is in charge of the Premier's household.
On the evening of the 28th some of
the young people of Saanich gave a
dance in the tea room at the Brentwood Ancorage.' George Love and W.
C. Wilson were billed to assist the
orchestra. George was taken ill and
was unable to attend ��� so the other
member of the Greenwood orchestra
had to his stuff.
J. L. White has purchased a very
desirable residence near the Parliament Building's, is nicely settled and
enjoying all the comforts of a home.
Next summer when he takes his bride

have the opportunity of meeting her
the verdict will be unanimous. Jack
says he lights the fire every morning.
They have an electric range.
Randolph Stuart is recuperating
after a six-months visit to the local
hospital. Just say Greenwood to him
and. he will talk by the hour. He
should write a book. As a matter of
fact he is a much older timer in the
Boundary than most people imagine.
He was there before there was a
Greenwood, before Jewel lake was discovered or the Jewel mine was staked.
N. H. Lamont has returned from
Ontario where he went to study the
wine industry of the Niagara Peninsula. Heinze started with one pickle
so Mr. Lamont started with one barrel of Loganberry wine. In four years
their business has developed till they
now have an investment of half a
million dollars. As a snowball rolling
down hill increases in size so this business has increased and the possibilities
of'the future are hard to estimate. .   "
Last week the boat house keeper
at Oak Bay invited the writer lo an
afternoon trip in a launch among the
Gulf islands. We picked Jack the
Light-house Keeper from his little
tower on the reef opposite Oak Bay.
During fine weather he is allowed to
leave his post during the daytime, but
at the slightest sign of fog or the ap-
proach'of night he must return to get
the beacon going and in case bf fog-
to turn the fog horn by hand sometimes days and nights at a stretch.
The few hours he gets ashore are full
of worry as a south easter is liable to
kick up any time then to get back is
not a task but a peril. Since,our trip
this very circumstance occurecl. Hi's
boat was dashed on the rocks and
smashed to pieces, Jack was thrown" in
the" raging surf but managed to climb
out. ";. , **���.;
Our party proceeded into the channel where we encountered a tide rip
which tossed the launch about. These
cross currents can certainly make a
rough piece of water. After rounding
the north end of Chatham Island we
pulled into a sheltered cove. This
.place as well as�� many other similar
spots have been the scenes of all kinds
of lawless acts. Smuggling of merchandise and Chinamen, rum running
and sheep stealing.. We tied up to a
big float. .Here the Chinese and
Japanese have huge crates sunk in the
water. In these they put live fish
which they hold till the market re-
requires them. To catch these they
use. what they call live bait. They have
herring alive, run the hook through
his middle, let him swim around arag-
ing the line. Then the big fish comes
and. gobbles him.
���On this Island were sea birds in
countless numbers. Big gulls, pigeon
gulls, divers, ducks, herons and cormorants; also the foliage was interesting. There were the huge Douglas firs
and the smaller Arbutus. The bark
falls off this tree every year while the
|eaves stay on.    '     __.        *   V ;. _

Admits .Loo!ing Liquor Store
Robert Cress of Tacoma, Wash., who
pleaded; guilty at Vancouver on Nov.
2nd. to having recently burglarised, a
Cordova" Street Government Liquor
Store when $1800 was taken from a
safe which had been carried off to the
Pacific highway. He was remanded
until Nov. 4 for sentence and-on that
day was sentenced to' three years in
the; penitentiary.   *-.
Cress was arrested at Bellinghain
while driving a truck load. of stolen
liquor. A. few days later Cress struck
a keeper with an iron bar and escaped,
but was captured shortly afterwards
But while waiting trial he again
escaped, this time by filing the bars of
his cell.
A fortnight later burglaries of stores
in Point Grey yielded the number of a
truck used to carry of the lcpt. Police
ran across this machine in the heart of
Vancouver one afternoon, and set a
watch. [To their surprise, the much-
sought jail-breaker climbed into the
machine. On the way to the police
station he bolted, and only gave up
after he had been shot in the thigh.
This is the same Bob Cress who four
years ago assisted by his two brothers
stole an automobile and twenty-twq
cases of liquor from the Grand Forks
Export Warehouse. He was sentenced
to five years in the penitentiary.
At one time Cress was a professional
baseball player having played with Bob

with Salt Lake City.
