THE D. A. MINE
During the week Mr. Jas. Skilton,
Manager of the J. R. Mines spent a
.few days in Nelson, the object of the
trip being to determine the best method of handling the ore from the
Company's property. ' ���_ .
Mr. Skilton took with him a .large
sample which was a section of the lead.
The assay showed a value of 275 oz.
silver and VAv oz. gold. This along
with other assays that have been obtained show that "the values are increasing with depth. _   .
Last fall Mr. P. B. Freeland inspected
the property and stated ��� that in his
opinion the high values obtained from
the same lead on the adjoining property would continue on the D. A. His
prediction   has   been   fully   realized.
It is ~ now only a matter of a few
weeks development, to block out a large
quantity of ore."
Mr. Skilton has always had the greatest faith in this property and in the
face of many adverse conditions has
now put it on the shipping list.

Impressive Service
At Monument
Boy Scouts Parade���Annual Service in
Memory of Fallen Heroes���Wreaths '
Are  Numei<ous
��� The Annual Memorial Service was
held at the Monument, Ingram Bridge
on Thursday, ��� May 24th. The people
were led to the Monument by Mr. R.
D.. Kerr and his Boy Scouts with Mr.
John Fawns in the 'lead playing the
bagpipes. *"��� '    ��� '
Major-F. E. Glossop amidst a-large
crowd gathered for the occasion, made
a short address in which he stated that
in .the year 1920, a number bf the
residents of the district met and agreed
to. build a Monument in honor of those
who had given their lives at the front
for freedom and humanity; ��� also
that a service should be held every
May 24th (Empire Day) for the purpose of keeping their memory green in
the hearts of the children and coming
generations. In pursuance of this fact
Major Glossop appealed to all present
to never forget, but ever take advantage
of the opportunity every Empire Day to
carry out the wishes of those who had
erected the Monument and instituted
this service. After completing his address Majon Glossop called upon Rev.
A. Walker to offer up an appropriate
prayer.' Major Glossop theri led the
audience in singing the - National
Anthem, after-"which he asked the
friends to present their wreaths. There
were beautiful - wreaths in abundance;
almost enough to cover the Monument.
Mr. A. Lander "received the wreaths
arid placed them af the base of' the
pyramid.      -   ''    - . '-'
Prior to the" service, a basketball
match was played between Rock Creek
and Greenwood and was,.won by" the
latter. After lunch.Ingram-Mountain
played Midway at basketball,'the former qualifying to meet Greenwood in
the- final, which was won by Greenwood. .Gordon McMynn .refereed ,the
first and third gaine while N..E. Morrison handled";tlie"sec6nd game'.""""" ^-""
Children's sports were" then held and
competition was -keen in all events
A baseball game between Beaverdell
and Midway finished the days sports.
The game was - most 'interesting and
resulted in a win for Midway by 10-6.
Empire Day was brought to a close
by a very enjoyable-. Dance in Riverside Hall, Bush's .Orchestra supplying
their usual lively music.
A rather' severe wind storm, accompanied by thunder ~ and- lightning,
visited the Valley on ^Saturday night.
Chicken coops were turned over, small
planks were blown quite a distance,
about 18 poles" on the Bridesville
Road were blown over, and other
damage done.'
" Friday and Saturday were semi-
tropical days. It registered 92 in" the
shade on Friday and on Monday 50
degrees only. Everyone complained
of how cold it was and fires were much
appreciated. The most puzzling thing
was that the wind was blowing from
the South, possibly the North Pole has
changed places with the South Pole.
Early on Saturday morning an airplane passed over the Valley. Naturally
no small commotion was created .when
it was known that an airplane was in
the close vicinity, as it is a rare sight
for the people in the Valley to see, so
consequently there was a hasty scramble
to the doors to catch a glimpse of the
plane. Details of how some of the
sightseers were dressed are best left to
the imagination of the readers.

FISHERMAN'S  PARADISE
On Sunday last R. ,C. Taylor, T.
Taylor arid J. Marsh _,spent the afternoon fishing in Jewel Lake. It would
be putting it mildly to say their efforts
were well rewarded. They brought into
town one'Of the finest'string of fish
ever seen in the Boundary Country.
Nine beautiful Kamloops trout with a
tota.' weight of 65 pounds.
The Government has been stocking
this Lake for several years with the
result that probably no lake in the province affords better sport. It is Jewel
lake by name and in appearance.
With this added feature of unexcelled
fishing we may look for 'a stampede of
sportsmen.

BRIDESVILLE NEWS
Mrs. F. E. Carbert, who has been ill
for the past two weeks, has quite recovered.
The intention on the' part of the
Government to increase the salary of
rural postmasters was expressed by
Hon. P. J. Veniot, Postmaster-General,
in the House of Commons on May, 26.
Mr. Veniqt said that the minimium salary at present is $60. until the revenue
reaches''$120 per annum. As the revenue increases up to $1,000 the salary
is fifty per cent of the increased revenue." Retroactive from May 10th of
this year, the minimum salary'will be
$100 instead of $60. The proportion
of increase up to $1,000 of revenue will
be seventy per cent instead of fifty;
up to $10,000, thirty per cent, and up
up to $20,000, twenty per cent. This
increase "will effect 9,000 rural postmasters throughout the Dominion,
said Mr. Veniot.
All autos in'British Columbia must

Compulsory arm signals by drivers

compulsory under the new regulations.
British Columbia's
Publicity Drive
B. C. & Y. Press Association originated
This   Campaign���Advertisements
Are Artistic And Attractive
"Seven years ago," writes the Secretary-of "the B. C. & Yukon Press Association, "the Press Association of the
province took its initial step in a campaign of publicity. At that time there
was prepared" in the office of the Vancouver Province and its mechanical
department a full-page advertisement
showing the development and resources of the province. This plate
was prepared and forwarded to newspaper members of the Press Association
free of cost by the Province newspaper,
and by them published at no cost to
anyone except the publisher. This
was done in the general interest of the
province. It had no political significance. The newspapers recognize that
tho "in" party always claims the credit
for any progress made and the "out"
parly ay ways'sees the country headed
for- the weiner factory. The Press
members tried to show British Columbia's phenomenal progress inspite of.
political parties not because of them,
and to inspire readers with the thought
of rapidly developing industries, splendid opportunities offering, and wealth
in untold quantity awaiting individual
effort and systematic search.
"The originial idea went over well,
but at that time the Association had
only a 50% membership. Since then
the idea has been further developed
until this year it was adopted by the
Provincial Government in a commendable spirit of cooperation Jooking to
the public weal. This week "every daily
and weekly newspaper.in the province
starts 'British Columbia first' publicity.
Not a week of it, not a month, but for
all time.
"Every citizen of the province; every
school girl or boy; every citizen of any
other : country- making a living here
should be interested^ in learning the
progress and development" the "province
is making.- All must enter into the
spirit of British Columbia before there
can be a united British Columbia marching forward in mighty array.
"This is the object of the campaign
starting this week, and the sole object
so far as the newspapers of the province are concerned���We hope to get
every man, woman and child 'sold' on
the idea ���of_British_Columbia's- great
ness. We hope to make every com
munity���no matter where located in
the province���feel it has a part to play
and that now is the time for each of us
to move forward in a big way on the
job we have to do in a mighty worthy
cause���the building of an empire."
GREENWOOD AND
DISTRICT  HOSPITAL
PROTECTION
FROM
MOSQUITO BITES
Proper screening is essential to comfort in places where severe mosquito
pests occur. Screens to be really effec-.
tive should not bc less than 16 meshes
to the inch. In rough shacks, stables,
etc., the number of mosquitoes entering
may be greatly reduced by spraying
with''creosote, at the rate of' about two
gallons to each room. The repellent
action following such treatment lasts
for nearly two months.
The application for mosquito repellents to exposed parts of the person to
prevent mosquitoes from biting is often
essential to'outside work. A repellent
which is widely used by entomologists,
and gives as much protection as any
so far devised is prepared by mixing
two parts .of oil of citronella with one
part each of spirits of camphor and oil
of cedar. When smeared on exposed
parts of the bqdy this mixture gives
temporary relief, is clean in use, and
does not irrate the skin of the average
person.
The Directors of the-above Hospital
very thankfully acknowledge receipt of
the following subscriptions:

supply the Pacific Coast demand and
the Asiatic trade it'is understood.
The Ford organization is known to
have been seeking a site at Vancouver
for some time. The only reason for
delay is that all possible efforts of the
company both in Canada arid the United States are been concentrated on volume production. Present rate of production is still far below the- former
standard, and until the cqmpany is
able to meet requirements of its agents
throughout the continent, the proposed
Vancouver plant will remain in abeyance.

ANARCHIST   MOUNTAIN
IS GREAT SCENIC ROAD
A GOOD FARMERS RULE
"An unusually interesting motor trip,
and one'that can be completed in three
or four hours, is that which takes one
on., a loop from Oroville, thrqugh
Moison. on to Bridesville,_then_ back to
Osoyoos and Oroville, over the famous
"Queen's Highway," says an Okanagan,
Washington, motorist.
From Oroville one travels east up the
Molson grade where, a raise of close to
three thousand feet is made in fourteen miles. The view back across the
valley toward Mount.Chopaca and the
Similkameen gorge, with the bench^
lands rising like giant stairs to ""the
higher Cascades, is marvelous.   .
Atthe busy little town of-Molson one
must clear the customs in order to continue on to Bridesville, across the; line
in Canada. Molson is the centre of a
thriving grain region and is the principal shipping point of the district.
At Bridesville one. must again visit the
customs office, then turning to the west
one is on the Queen's highway. While
not comparable to the more travelled
highways on ..the American side, the
road is'nevertheless in very good shape.
The way continues through scattered woods and rolling hills to the top of
the Osoyoos, hill, when of a sudden a
breath-taking panorama lies before
one.. To the left, at the bottom of the
valley is Oroville, while leading northward, past Osoyoos, In-ka-neep point
and still further is Osoyoos lake. Directly below are the cluster of buildings making up Osoyoos, near it, a narrow neck of land juts far into the lake,
all but dividing it into two parts. On
the far side of the valley is a checkerboard of small tracts being developed
under, water from the Oliver project.
Continuing'down/the.hill, one momentarily loses the: view behind a knoll,
only,to have it burst again with a new
charm.   :"���'::;..   y   x
Reaching; the bottom of the several
miles long hill there is more formality
with customs officers at" Osoyoos, and
then southward along the edge of the
lake to Oroville, starting point of the
trip. Were there ho attraction but the
view from the top of Osoyoos^, grade
the. trip would'still repay one many
times for taking it." ...
HOW MUCH CHANGE
A feirl was asked what she thought of
married life. "Oh, there's not much
difference," she replied. "I used to
wait up half the night for Tom. to
go, and now I iwait:up:half the night
for him to come home."      ;
Farm work is so varied that it .requires, some planing to have all the tools,
implements and supplies ready at the
time they are required. For prompt
work everything needs to, be in its place
so that ploughing, seeding, planting or
spraying can be started at the opportune time. To accomplish this it is
necessary to develop the/habit of thinking over and through each operation
some days or even weeks before it is
due. , All machinery should be brought
out, inspected, and if necessary, repaired or limbered up? If wrenches, oil
.cans=or==otlieit=accessoriesfear'e-missing-
put them in place, or be sure where
they can be had quickly and not forgotten. Any supplies needed can be
put on the list for the next shopping
trip. So much time is lost- getting
started. at spraying; dusting, planting,
mowing and so on, by forgetting some
tool or supply in the bustle of the new
jo'b that it is well.to, have a list of
everything needed, written at some
quiet time, and check off each item
before starting away .from headquarters. The farm is'frequently at a distance from town so that a special trip
for a bolt, file, handle, or part, needed
before a piece of work can be done,
may cost in mileage alone more than
in cash value. If a stock list of all the
things that may be needed, such as
assorted nails, screws, bolts, washers,
tire tape, files, oil cans, handles, sparkplugs, etc., is kept and their purchase
made in combined lots from time to
time the merchant can afford to give a
percentage off for the larger order, and
the time saved in supplying many
small articles in one cash transaction.
The saving and the satisfaction- derived from putting one's hand on the
needed trifle without delay is often
great. '-���*'���. .   '

The new play of hectic high life
among Britain's postrwar youth brings
back to the screen Colleen Moore in
the type of characterization for which
she is best known. For. the space of
two productions Miss Moore appeared
in most artistically sedate roles which
demonstrated her-versatility. But her
admirers continued to demand jazz-
so in the coming production it's a plain
case of "on with the dance."
Colleen "is .reported to give an electrifying performance and"to' have the
support; of an ideal cast, with Jack
Mulhall as her leading man.
Pictorial value is added to the picture
iiy its gorgeous background of actual
London, as many scenes were made
across the big pond.

AGRICULTURAL   STATISTICS   1928
The Dominion Bureau of Statistics
has nyide the customary arrangement*
for the collection and publication of
the annual  agricultural  statistics of-
w.a.,a   for   the   year   1��)28.   These
statistics will be based upon' returns
to be collected next June from individual farmers upon cardboard schedules   issued   to   them   through   the
teachers   and  children   of  the  rural
schools.  The schedule is a very simple
one, calling only for the areas sown to
held .crops and the numbers of farm
animals alive on the farm in mid-June ���
Upon the resulting estimates of total
areas sown are based the preliminary
provisional and final estimates of yield'
which are of supreme importance in
connection with the movement, financing, distribution and sale of the principal cereals,  especially of wheat of
which Canada is now the world's leading exporter.
The present plans for the collection1
of these statistics have been followed
annually since 1917, and the estimates
based thereon have come to be con-,
fidently relied upon by all interested in
the production and distribution of '
Canadian grain.
Accurate statistics are indispensible
for a proper appreciation of the
national progress, and in order to ensure that the statistics may be as accurate as possible, "it is earnestly hoped
that farmers' throughout the Dominion
will not fail to render the small service '
required by filling up and returning the -
schedule issued.   -
If any farmer should not receive the
cardboard schedule by the middle of "
June he should apply for either to the
school teacher of- the nearest local
school, or to the-Provincial Department
ol Agriculture; or. to the Dominion
Statistician at Ottawa. The aim is to
obtain a complete schedule from every'
farmer, as the more numerous the returns, the more trustworthy will be the
resulting estimates..
From Experience
"I see that my husband has dried the
dishes."
"How do you know?" asked the visitor.
"They're still wet." ,
The .professor was asked to give his
definition of a woman. After clearing
his throathe began in his leisurely way.
'Woman is,, generally speaking���"
"Stop right there, professor," interrupted a lowbrow. "If you talked a
thousand years you'd never* get any
nearer to it than that.""
