Mining Notes
A. McPhee is working on the
Bounty at Beaverdell.
The Wellington and -Bell mines
at Beaverdell are looking very
good.
Messrs. Barrett and Wells have
struck ore on the Rambler at
Beaverdell.
Ore was struck a few days ago
on the Gold Drop at Beaverdell.
BillMcTomminy is in charge.
' A. Franchie, M. E., of Seattle,
Wash., is in town. Mr. Franchie
is here in. the interests of the
Silver Charm Mining Co.. who
are operating the Spotted Horse.
J. T. Bell of Beaverdell, was a
visitor to the city on Monday.
j He is interested in the Highland
I Lass claim on Wallace Mountain
and expects'to resume operations
as soon as the snow goes.
Referring to the death in Victoria
this week of John Mack,_a writer under the name of "Kilbee Gordon"
says:
"He was one of the very earliest'
pioneers of the Boundary Creek, mining district, of   which   the    city   of
Greenwood was the    official   centre,
thirty odd years ago. "
"With Mr. Duncan Mcintosh, "the
present part owner of the 'Bell' mine ,
at Beaverdell, John Mack was one of
the ori|&inal ownerg of the famous
'Winnipeg' mine, in Wellington camp.
Boundary Creek district, one of the
first shippers of high-grade ore of the
early days of the Boundary.
"Later, he was the locator, owner
and operator of another famous property, the 'Athelstan' .mine, in" the
same camp, in the early nineties. In
still later years, he married and mov- ���
efl to Spokane "Falls, as it was then -
called, from which mining centre he
operated in many well-known mining
camps in B.C., Washington and the
State of Idaho.
"AVhen the rush to the Northern
Ontario gold fields took' place, with
many other westerners, John Mack
transferred his attention to the new
t-erritory,. and was most successful in
his ventures'in' Ontario, and, later on?
in Quebec. He returned to British
Columbia a few months ago in search
of health, having become run-down
from overwork while operating on a
large scale in the province of Quebec.
"All the old-timers of the Boundary
Creek mining district, and they are a
fast-diminishing little circle, who wero
in that district anywhere from 1800
to 1902, will'recall John Mack's friendly and cheery personality. He was
a horn and convincing optimist. He
had many good friends ��� among the
old-time residents of Southern British
Columbia, and they will be grieved
jto hear of his death. He* was born
in 1859, in Quebec, and had travelled
most extensively in Canada, and 'he
United States throughout a busy life
time." SHE   GREENWOOD   Ltfrwr

Solving- Western Problems
Dr. II. M. Tory, president of lhe National Research Council ancl also of
���the University of Alberta, making appeal in a recent issue of a Canadian
..periodical i'or grealer aid in the work of research in Canada, says: "Such
��� an orgauizaiioii could in a lew years be made to mean far more to industry
than all the petty tariff changes aboul whicli there is so much agitation."
Dr. Tory is a man of sound economic views, is above playing the game
��� bf .parly politics, and'is one whose opinions carry great weight throughout
this whole western country, and. Indeed, to an increasing extent throughout
Che Dominion.   His words, above quoted, are, therefore, deserving of attention.
The truth of this statement can hardly ho questioned, because, by making
{production more efficient greater help will bo brought to industry in all its
branches thaii can possibly be done by any tariff. Efficiency in one branch
��� of industry assists  all  other branches  whereas  tariff changes  which aro
-designed lo lielp one particular industry or group of industries very frequently
��� operates to tho disadvantage of other industries more or less dependent upon
the first group.
The National Iteseareh Council Is, within the limits of its comparatively
��� small Income, practicing what ils president preaches as to the undoubted
��� benefits of scientific research applied lo the needs of industry. A few days
<ngo announcement was made that research work of really vital importance
to all the. wheal, fanners of western Canada is to be carried on at all the
.provincial universities of the three prairie provinces in association with the
.Dominion grain research laboratory at Winnipeg.    The particular problem
to bo tackled is damp and lough grain, the importance of which .will 'be
. appreciated by every fanner who has sustained loss during the present crop
-season.
Tho Nalional Research Council some time ago appointed a special
-committee on grain research to study various problems connected with-the
.production and marketing of grain, including factors affecting milling and
baking quality, commercial grading, and diseases affecting grain plants,
-.particularly rust. This committee now proposes an immediate survey of the
������m.ethodi employed in grain drying, to be followed by a study of the different
methods with a view to determining which is mpst advantageous from the
���viewpoint of economy and the resulting quality of the dried product.
In order lo mako investigation as thoroughgoing as possible, the
"Universities of Manitoba", Saskatchewan and Alberia will engage in 'the work.
Milling and baking test laboratories of the most modern type have already"
been Installed at the Alberia and Saskatchewan Universities and the^same
��� equipment  is being installed in  Manitoba.     Dr.  Tory has  expressed thc
��� opinion that il is doubtful if a research of such magnitude has ever before
'boon undertaken iii Canada.
Our Prairie Universities are playing a large part in the development
��� of these provinces and in finding solutions for many problems. Research
-work is necessarily slow.   To be of any value it must Ijo most thorough,
frequently covering years of study and many tests. Anything haphazard 'Will
������not do.   Ilecauso of this, many people are impatient of research work and
��� are-critical of money.spent on it.   But the fact"remains that it has.becn the
work of scientists and experts, rather than tariffs, which has mado the United
��� States the great industrial nation it is today   The industries of Great Britain
* :built up their world trade, not because of tariffs, but through the application
��� of scientific discoveries.    Industrial Germany was tho product of research
work probably lo a grealer extent than any other country.
Canada, it must be admitted, has been backward in this respect, and our
-manufacturers are largelyHo blame, because for years they have been
���obsessed with lhe" idea'that in Customs tariffs, and in Customs tariffs alone,
���was prosperity to be found. If the Canadian manufacturers would throw tho
-whole weight of their influence and resources back of the National Research
���Council, a new and better era in Canadian industry would result.

Delivery Horses in Demand
Reserve Animals Always Needed to
Fill Up Gaps
Clean, upstanding.' horses, sixteen
hands high, especially strong ln the
legs, weighing from 1200 to 1400
pounds, and single broken,-- are the
typo, of animals business firms want
for delivery horses, members of the
Saskatchewan Horse Breeders' Association were told at their annual
meeting by Arthur Newman, Winnipeg. Mr. Newman was speaking for
the larger firms "ln that city who require a number of horses for servico
on their delivery wagons.   ���
"There are over -100 delivery horses
in daily* servico in Winnipeg," Mr.
Newman staled, "and reserve animals
are needed at all times to fill up tho
gaps in the ranks. Only one ln ten of
the animaals wo ge.t now aro single
broken, and you can imagine the difficulty of breaking them In busy streets
of Winnipeg. Any fanner who has a
horso or number of horses answering
the description of what "wo consider
the "Typical -Delivery Horse" will always be able to sell them, aud at good
prices.

You vould be surprised at the wonderful action of "Nerviline" in just
such cases. Being thin and not an
oil preparation, it is able to penetrate
quickly, and down It sinks into the tissues, carrying its healing, soothing action wherever It goes. For stopping
muscular or nerve pain/ for easing a
stiff joint, Nerviline is a complete success. Pain, soreness,, stiffness all
vanish before the magic power of this
wonderful liniment. Nearly fifty
years of success proves the merit of
Nerviline. which Is sold everywhere In

France Electrifying Railways '
Doing More Than Any Other Country
In This Line
Here is oue reason why railroads
will havo to .change their method ot
propulsion some time ih tho neV future: Hauling.a train weighing more
than 4,000 tons, a IG-wheeled electric
locomotive in France the other day
did the 115 miles between Paris-and
Vierzzon at an average speed of 88J/4
miles an hour. ' -
Steam has done as well as this
when it comes to speed, but those records have been occasional and made
under stress. Moreover, a steam locomotive, due fo its reciprocating parts,
must be more frequently overhauled
than the electric, which can do a fast
run, and then turn right around and
do it over again.
France is doing morev than" any
other country, right now, toward the
electrification of her railroads. Several lines are almost completely electrified, and work is proceeding on others. This js part' of a gr-��at hydroelectric development fostered by the
government with the idea of relieving
Franco from dependence on foreign-
mined coal, and providing cheap power for railways and industries.

Public Health Scholarships
Social Hygiene Council, to Create an
Endowment Fund
Creation of an endowment fund to
provide for one or more public health
scholarships in a Canadian university,
it is indicated, will be ono of the most
significant items on tho program of
Canadian Social iiygione leaders during the coming year.
As far as is known, no similar fund
now exists anywhere in the Dominion
und the proposal, while not'yet worked out in detail, demonstrates how
very rapidly, during tlio past few
years, has been the growth of the idea
that health is aot merely a matter
which concerns only -the individual
aud the family doctor, but one which
is as vitally a matter of public interest as the tariff or freight rates and
most intimately related to tho welfare
of tho country as a.whole.
While no details are yet available,
the proposed scholarships, it is understood, would likely be offered as an aitl
to selected medical students who have
shown special aptitude or liking for
public health work and are inclined to
specialize in that particular field .or
medical work.
DOCTOR'S PRAISE
A  Noted  Doctor Strongly  Endorses Dr. Williams' Pink
The test of any .remedy lies, in its
acceptance' and employment by the
qualified medical practitioner. No
less an authority than Dr. Andrea
Amici, physician to the Papal household, writing on the subject of anaemia, impoverishment of tho nervous
system and ' disorders attributable
thereto, strongly endorses Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, recommending them
as superior to other tonics.
Dr. Amici's testimony reads as.' follows:���"For several' years I. have
made use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
in my work and I have always found
them efficacious in the treatment ot
disorders due to. impoverishment of
the nervous" system, anaemia and
neurasthenia, stomach weakness, retarded development in young women,
and irregularities. There is no lack
of ionic remedies, but in my experience no one of,, them manifests a superior efficacy to that of Dr. Wil-
JiamsLPinkJPIlls;!!   ���_     .	
Grain, Shipments Via Pacific
Canadian Pacific and  other   steamships plying out of Vancouver will be
busy carrying grain during the next
month, there being   nearly   5.000,000
bushels to go . forward   during   that
time, to the   United,   Kingdom,   the
Orient and South America.
___________ /
Recognized as a leading specific for
the destruction of worms, Mother
Graves' ��� Worm Exterminator has
proved- a boon to suffering children
everywhere.   It seldom fails.
No more conclusive evidence of the
value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
could be asked for or given, than is
found in the above endorsement of
this noted European physician. Besides this, however, this medicine has
enjoyed a world-wide public confidence for more than a third, "of a century and has brought relict to thousands aud thousands of weak ancl suffering people.
' Try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
anaemia, rheumatism, neuralgia, nervousness and stomach trouble. Take
them as a tonic if you are not in the
best physical condition and cultivate
a resistance that will keep you well
and strong. You can get, these pills
through any medicine dealer or by
m-all 'at 50 cents a box from The Dr.

A Wonderful Age
,' ,  ���-
Seventeen Has Been Heroic Age for
Many People
Many are the readers who laughed
till they cried over Booth Tarking-
ton's "Seventeen." Tho hero of that
book is a typical boy at an ago when
momentous subjects swing into, his
ken.' ' Girls, tall, and short, blond and
brunette; clothes, his first dress suit,
gorgeous neckties, tho^fancied necessity of shaving twice a week; flowers,
bonbons, dales���at seventeen, .what a
life!
Yet seventeen ls an age of something besides theso "things usually
associated with callow youth, Georgo
Young, winner or tho Catalina Channel swimming contest, Is seventeen.
Think of the qualities necessary to
achieve a swim of 22 miles in cold,
rough andi dangerous waters. Ono
hundred and two men and women

these belong to the age of seventeen,
and because of this fact youth is the
wonder of the world. -Was it not St.

International Highways
Canada   Will   Spend   $35,000,000
,.   .      '" Highways in 1927
.Canada took a prominent part in the
annual  convention of the American
Road Builders'   Association   in   Chicago recently,   when   delegates   from
the United   States,   Mexico,   Central
America, South America, Cuba, Porto
Rico and Alaska stressed "the point
that peace can best be maintained and
cordial relations furthered among the
nations of the western hemisphere by
a system of international highways,
making these countries   more   accessible     to     one     another.      Wilfrid
| Lefebvre of the Dominion Highways
Department, Ottawa, said thai Canada will be spending about $35,000,-
000 on highways in 1927. There was
400,000 miles of roads in this country
of which 5-1,000 are improved.

Cranbrook lovers of sport have to
thank our location for the opportunity given us of seeing a first class
game of hockey on Monday evening
last.vwhen Greenwood, champions of
West Kootenay, and Michel, champions of East Kootenay, met on the
local ice in the first of two games
to decide "who should meet the intermediate champions of the Okanagan district. The Michel team had
won the right to play by defeating
Fernie in home and home games, and
had won from Kimberley by default.
Greenwood had won from its district
competitor,  Grand Forks.
The game, which was attended by
a fair crowd, was as interesting as
has been played in the city for some
time. During the whole game there
was never a dull moment, and despite the fact that few of those in
attendance had any particular favorite, an enthusiasm was soon awakened as the spectators watched twelve
men representing Greenwood and
Michel battle hard for supremacy,
each man doing his town credit by
the gentlemanly manner in which he
conducted himself, the fact that there
was not a penalty hatraed out being a
credit to both teams.
<-* First   Period
The game started with a rush on
the Michel goal, Puddy trying a shot
within five seconds, and Bobby Littler, of Michel, getting in a nice
dash in return, but failing to score,
Bryan coming out to save. In about
two minutes Greenwood got the first
tally, Crowley scoring on a nice pass
from Morrison. Time two minutes.
Play was hardly resumed when J.
Littler notched a tally for Michel.
Play soon became very fast, with
Taylor doing stalwart work on the
defence and making some good dashes. J. Littler failed aftei a good
try on goal, and' Puddy, Carlson,
Morrison and Taylor kept up good
work for Greenwood, while J. Littler and, B. Littler seemed to be
wherever the puck was for the Michel team. ^ After Taylor made an
unsuccessful try, B. Littler, after a
brilliant play, put Michel in the lead,
which they maintained to the end.
Time nine minutes. T. -Littler and
J. Gaskell got in some nice work,
then J. Littler got a nice goal on a
solo play. Time two minutes. In
about another minute Bobby scored
on a nice pass from around the nets
from his brother, Jim Littler, Bobby
scored almost immediately another
unassisted, Taylor scoring Greenwood's second goal in about a minute
after.      First period, score 5-2.
Second   Period
JShangla rushed" the Greenwood
goal and made two tries. Anderson

in some good work, and J. Littler
scored Michel's sixth goal on a pass
from Bobby, and a minute after Bobby scoredonapass froin Jim Littler.
Puddy, Crowley and, Morrison, got in
some nice ice work as they, tried hard
to score for_.Greenvyood. The period
ended with an excellent try'.by-Wjlfy
Littler. , "���
Third. Period
Michel started in strong, the goal
umpire indicating a goal in about
one minute, which, however, was disallowed. Within a few seconds T.
Littler scored. Next J. Littler made
a grand rush, but missed a wide open
goal. The goal judge, thinking the
puck had gone in, held up his hand,
but it was clearly seen, however, that
the shot had gone wide. Carlson, for
Greenwood, got in the most spectacular playthat could be imagined,, tak
ing the'puck from in front of' his
own goal, .passing the. whole Michel
team and scoring. Crowley followed
a minute after with another'solo, and
scored Greenwood's' fifth goal. Goals
followed in rapid succession by Michel, J. Littler, Anderson and Tom
Littler being the scorers, Greenwood
fighting every bit of the way.
Michel well deserved the^win, being excellent skaters and stick handlers. Rpi a comparatively new man
between the posts,. Bryan did well
for Greenwood. The crowd was glad
to see the Greenwood players again,
they having created such a very favorable impression last year It was
Michel's first appearance on local ice,
and it is voicing the sentiments of
all who saw the game to say that any
team that can put up the brand of
hockey Michel did and play so cleanly
will always be welcome in Cranbrook.

���It is in no way belittling to Michel to say that without the Littlers
the littler team could likely defeat
them, there being on the team, Jim,
Tom,  Bobby ancl Wilfred Littler.
An interested spectator at the hockey., game between Greenwood v and
Michel was Mr. Jack Littler, father
of Jim, the fast left wing of the Michel team, ancl also of Bobby, the
energetic centre, and uncle of Tom
and Wilfred Littler, also members of
the team. Thc town of Michel showed themselves good'supporters, there'
being no less than five citizens of
that town present during the game
to~back up the team. These were
Harry Saunders, A Gallett, P. McGovern, Jack Littler and W. Jenkins.
G. W. A. Smith, manager of the
Greenwood team, is a-'member of the
newspaper fraternity, being proprietor ancl editor of the Greenwood
Ledge. Juan Puddy also accompanied the team from' the West Kootenay town. The spares on .the' Michel team showed up like veterans,
although they were but youngsters
at the game; both being eligible for
the junior team. The crowd admired
the playing of Michel, it being more
sympathy, for the "under dog" that
caused some of the local boys to
cheer and encourage Greenwood.
Michel's Second Win
Before a large crowd at .the Arena
rink on Wednesday nighjt the second
game took place. The game was
again marked by fast work from
start to finish and was a credit to
both the contending teams, both
losers and winners, being extended
.congratulations of the cleanliness of
their play.
The first period was marked by a
determined effort on the part of
Greenwood to reduce the lead that
the Michel team had gained on them
in the previous game,, the result being that their goal was only pierced
twice, whereas in the previous game
five were notched in the first. Michel goals were scored by J. Littler
and T. Littler, from Sadlish, while
D. Taylor scored for Greenwood.
In the second period Taylor worked hard to score and with Morrison
and Puddy got in some very effective work. After several close calls
by Greenwood J. Littler, after a nice
solo rush scored the third goal for
Michel. Michel did not lay down for
one minute and kept hammering
away at the Greenwood goal, Bryan
covering himself with glory for the,
manner in which he defended his goal
time, and time. again keeping out
seemingly sure goals. The third
period was marked by good playing
by Puddy of Greenwood. Soon after the start Greenwood came within
one "of evening the score on a nice
rush- and shot by Carlsonr' With ten
minutes to go Michel started a scoring bee, J. Littler, Anderson Bobby
Littler and Wilfy Littler notching
goals in rapid succession. The final
score was 7-2.
Ashton Powers again refereed in
a most capable manner, W. Johnson
