BOUNTIES CHANGED
HOMING GOLF BALLS
Golfers-have come a step nearer the
ultimate.   The unlosable golf ball has'
been patented.   No matter "where it is
driven���on the "fairway, in the rough
or into the innermost depths of the
most hazardous hazard���it will come,
figuratively   speaking, -romping   back ���
like a tousled collie who has just had a
dip in the surf.- The formula'of the "
inventor is comparatively" simple.   By',
application of the process, golf balls
that have strayed" from their -owners
may be found by .asserting themselves
to the sight, smelljor hearing.
Fancy hearing a lost golf ball calling >���
to its master! But that is precisely *
what this inventor contemplates. The
ball is. covered or immersed' iri a
pyrotechnic solution similar' to the
material from which" "spit-devils"���
used by small boys on Fourth "of July-
are made. When the ball is struck it
fulminates and continues ' to crackle
and sputter for some minutes, or per- '
haps moments, thereby enabling- the
golfer to find it. If that device is unsatisfactory, or annoys?the owner who
objects to hearing little golf balls calling _. him, he may immerse the ball,
oefore teeing off, in a solution of phosphorus and carbon bisulphide. As the
solvent evaporates the phosphorus will
emit a perceptible glow,'even in daylight. If the golfer wants to-play at
night, so be it.      : -   .-
But the most aesthetic appeal of the
unlosable golf ball is through the sense
of smell.   The ball is coated with some
of the essential oils, such as attar of
roses-expensive? yes, but what ma?- '
ers that to the ardent golfer?-and ,
thereby gives off a pleasing. and. per- "
vading aroma.
Imagine two golfers ��� meeting in the
rough searching for balls that have '
strayed beyond' their ken. "     -
"hereii-S1'' "'^ "^-?niffing POlit*ly' '
The other may raise his head, also ���
sniffing politely, then adding-
thSrr5nnrd   thankS'    0W    ChaP'    bUfc
thats not mine. I'm using -black
narcissus. That's obviously violet"
Then.after a moment.or two, meeting '
other searchers,one of the golfers" may""
say: "I say, old chap,-If youre using
violet this season you'll, find the ball
over by the hedge.''-Christian Science
Monitor.

As stated this legislation should
prove to be beneficial to the farming
industry of. the province. So far as
mortgage obligations are concerned,
it means.that no man who can arrange to meet his interest obligations
in connection with a mortgage need
fear foreclosure proceedings. From
the standpoint of development, the
legislation should give many settlers
who are handicapped for lack of capital a real opportunity to strike out in
a way that in most cases should ensure success." ,
SCOTLAND GROWING DRIER
LONG TERM LOANS FOR
BRITISH COLUMBIA FARMERS
John-Barlycorn is waging a losing
fight in Scotland. The conviviality
which sullied the otherwise exquisite
pages of Burns, has greatly diminished,
and if the signs are read aright the
feeling toward its extinction is spreading rapidly. One sign of no little, in-
port ih this culture of the distillers'
appeal for the exertion of pressure on
the Government to reduce the duty on
lquor. The appeal was cast in an economical mold, and was designed to
show the farmers that they were losing heavily through the import of
foreign liqours and the reduced consumption of home-grown barley from
which whisky is made."
The appeal produced exactly the opposite effect from that intended. Indeed, no regret was expressed that forty distilleries had been closed since
the war, and one member of the chamber even went so far as to say that if
the increased duty had.made Scotland
more.sober, the best thing they could
do would be to raise the duty by another 25 per cent. It is apparent that
liquor in Scotland is falling on hard
times,- and that even if the climate is
still wet, the country is growing drier
all the time;���Christian Science Monitor. '
FILM COMIC SWINGS
OVER DEEP RAVINE
You can always be certain about
one thing in a Johnny Hines picture.
This racy, spontaneous comedian is
very much of an athlete and never
hesitates to "do his stuff" by himself
Each Hines production manages to
contain a lot of thrills ancl at least one
big trill which is usually of the hair-
raising variety.
In "Rainbow Riley." his latest comedy, Johnny is seen swinging across
a chasm via a suitcase which is attached by a rope that has been thrown
over a wire cable. -If you don't think
that takes nerve, try it yourself some
day. But be sure to pick out a chasm
that is at least COO feet deep, since
that is exactly the depth of the chasm
of Dingmans Falls, Pennslyvania,
where Johnny made the leap.
"Rainbow Riley" will be shown at the
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday May,
5th.
THE TRUTHFUL PRINTER
SILVER FOX FURS SELL AT
HIGHEST PRICE SINCE WAR
The following editorial from the
Grand Forks Gazette should be of interest to farmers throughout this District, particularly in view of the fact
that when, the Federal Farm _loan
scheme was being considered by the
Agricultural Committee during the recent Session, Mr. McPherson, our local
member, was the principal advocate
for its adoption by British Columbia
and it was on his motionthat the Committee recommended the measure to
the Legislature:   ���        '
"Agriculturists throughout British
Columbia will in future years reap
material benefits from' the legislation
adopted at the recent session of the
Legislature making effective in this
province, the Canadian Farm Loan
Act adopted by the Dominion Parliament a couple of years ago.'-':,/.���
What the new legislation will make
provision for is long term loans on
the amortization plan, which means
the repayment" of money borrowed
will be extended over a long period,
probably from thirty to thirty-five
years, and if that time is taken to
wipe out the liability of the borrower
all payments will be on an interest
basis. In other words the interest
^charge will_include the regularjnter
est plus pfbbably~one~per~ceht^=to-be,
applied to the wiping out of the principal'from the time the first payment
" is made. Borrowers ��� will, however,
have the privilege of reducing, or wiping out, the whole indebtedness whenever they desire to take.this step.
The long term loans will be welcome
to that class of farmers who have a
mortgage coming due which they are
unable to meet although in a position 'to pay the interest thereon.
Farmers in this position, and unable
to get a renewal of the mortgager under conditions that have existed up
to the present time must face foreclosure proceedings unless they are
'" able to raise the money elsewhere.
Under the long term credit plan the

PROTECTING HEELS
OF STOCKINGS
Before wearing a new pair of: silk
stockings it will be found that reinforcing the heels will prevent rubbing and thus prolong their usefulness.
This is done by cutting a piece of
cloth oblong in shape, about 2\i> inches
wide, _asnear_ the lsame_. color as the
hose as possible, and sewing it with
blind stitches inside the heel of the
stocking, using ordinary silk thread
the same color as the.stocking. It will
be easier to pin it in place first to prevent slipping, placing the lower end
almost as far down as the point of the
heel, and letting it extend an inch or so
above the shoe line. The lisle tops of
silk stockings are very good for this
purpose; only one thickness must be
uscd, however. If the tops are cut off
and saved when the stockings are discarded, one can keep a supply on hand
for new hose. If the stitches arc taken
very carefully, only one or two at a

is to find out just how rapidly it is
possible to get around the world today
using only regular transportation lines
including air. The Jiji.thinks that the
trip will take about 35 days and is giving each contestent $1500 for expenses,
which must not be exceeded.
New York, London, Paris, Berlin, and
Moscow must be visited, and in certain
cities embassies, city haUs and press
association offices.     ���
The winner is to receive a prize of
$1500, and the loser $500, provided he
returns within a stated time.

"A man about 46 years of

becn arrested in New York
for attempting to exhort
funds from ignorant and superstitious people by exhibiting a device which he says
will convey the human voice

by the listener at the other
end. o
"Well-informed people know
that it is impossible to transmit

" 2. Mining class in Vancouver. Note tho women prospectors.
3. A typical mining scene at the 400 feet level.
The old mining days of>British
Columbia, that were as rich
Au output as in romance, are being revived.   There ia a new re-
��� cord in mineral production in
this most highly mineralized area
on the North American continent, in which, every conceivable
mineral is, found." In all phases
of mining,���prospecting, development and production; lode
mining, placer-mining, and coal;
mining, ��� the current year is
witnessing a healthy and vigorous activity.
The largest increases recorded
are in lead and zinc, and the province possesses the second greatest lead-zinc mine in the world.
Copper, too, shows an increases
production, while the every day
progress! of that great company
the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company in I'rall, B.C.,
reads more like a wonderful romance than a reality.
A most significant feature of
the present activity in mining ls
the way in which many partially
developed properties and also
prospects which have been lying
dormant; are now being developed. Substantial progress has
been" made in building "main
trunk motor roads through, the
provinces, while material aids
are being given in the working
of mineral properties by assisting in the construction of branch
roads to them. New trails are
also continually being h built to
open, up newly discovered mineralized areas for the prospector.
The British Columbia Chamber
of Mines has been promoting the
welfare of the mining industry
for the last thirteen years. The
Chamber has on exhibition an interesting' collection of the great
variety of minerals mined in the
province. There is also co-operation with theJ various prospectors' associations of British Columbia,
Many towns of .the province
have branch chambers of mines
and the classes ln mineralogy
and geology as well as the mining lectures have been Jargely
attended. It is of interest to
learn that there are a few*
women , prospectors attending
these lectures as will be _ seen
from the picture.- Research
work, too, with regard to mineral
deposits is carried on continuously by the development branch
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. .   s

OPPOSE HEAVY EXAMS
AND HOME WORK
At the annual conference, held the
other day, of the National Association
of School Trustees in Newcastle-on
Tyne, England, C. C. Carter, presiding
protested against the excessive examinations, condemned home work foir
children and urged a lengthening of the
public school curriculum. Happy was
tho pupil, he said, who could take examinations in his stride, but years of
drudgery and misery were in store for
the home-worked, crammed pupil who
had to undergo intensive preparation.
If the school hours were not- long
enough, Mr. Carter continued, in which
to accomplish all that ought to be done
they should be lengthened, but if a full
and proper use was made of the existing time allotted per day, the pupil
had a sufficiency of that type of mental exertion for the 24 hours.
"In our secondary schools," he said,
"examinations have become a fetish.
To a large extent I blame- employers
for this. They attach an exaggerated
importance to examination certificates. -1 would recommend a much surer
guide to. the character -and attainments of the boy seeking employment.
Ask him to produce his terminal reports and be guided by these. Examinations are not the way to educational salvation or efficiency. They
have a very limited use. A battleship
or two less would provide for much
needed and salutary reforms."���Kamloops Sentinel.

NOTED FLYER DEAD
Quebec���Floyd Bennett" died in thc
Jeffery Hale hospital on April 25th of
pneumonia. ' The American flier's life
ebbed at the hospital- where he was
taken afflicted with pneumonia after
flying a relief plane1 from "Detroit to
aid the German fliers on Greenly Island.
Col. Chas. Lindbergh's mission of
mercy was fruitless The serum Lindbergh brought from New York to this
city in a record flight through storms
and mist yesterday, proved unavailing
in combating the dread number three
type of pneumonia from which Bennett
died.
