Tho death of Hector Pitchforth,

reveals a story of self-sacrifice and
courage, worthy, of a place beside
thoso of the world's greatest heroes'.
A very moving story lies behind his
lonely death in the silent Arctic
wastes of Bailln Island.
Hector Pitchfortli was an English
university graduate, a real student,
specializing in geology and astronomy.
During tho war an oflicer on a British mine-sweeper which, was torpedoed, he afterwards represented an
English trading company in his remote Atlantic port for seven years.

held up the vessel coming to him with

loneliest spot in tho world. It lies between Greenland and Canada in the
Arctic zone. The 'temperature is
sometimes 50 br more below zero, aud
the sun seldom or never visits this
dreary spot. Tho Island is about 150
miles across and about 600 miles from
north to soutli.
Winter lasts nine months and Includes three months of weird, luminous twilight; brilliant in tho northern
sky, and fading'to absolute blackness
in the south. Sometimes, even .this
dim light is obliterated by great gales
which bring with them. blinding hall

In winter months the island is surrounded by a gigantic ice belt many
feet deep and varying from 20 to 100
miles in width, making communication

Anglo-American Friendship
Sir Esme Howard British Ambassador
To-U.S. Speaks to Gathering '
Sir Esme Howard, British ambassador to the I-lnlted States, expressed o
desire to foster "the terrible, disease
known as Anglo-American friendship,"'
in an address before the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants at Boston. .
'Although ho did not refer by name
to Mayor "Big Bill" Thompson, of
Chicago, the British ambassador made
-light of the mayor's campaign against
British propaganda.
"We have hesird so. much . lately
from another place of the danger of
British propaganda ln ihis country
that I was ' beginning to' .wonder
whether tho descendants of the Pilgrim fathers, gathered hero to celebrate the landing "of their ancestors
at Plymouth, might not havo feared
that the presence of the British am-
bassador might bring with it some
dread infection of tho terrible disease
known as Anglo-American Friendship," said Sir Esme.
"I believe that the beaco of the
world depends langely upon iriencKEip
and understanding between our two
countries. It is, therefore, diflicult for
me not to believe that those who seek
to undermine it are consciously, or unconsciously, actively promoting- a
stale of things which will make permanent peace 'far mere difficult to
realize, and the possibility of a new
war more threatening than at present.
"Such a world war, whether for U3
or for our children, would be a disaster so Incalculable that even such a
dangerous propagandist as a British
ambassador may bc excused for doing
what little hc can to avert It.
"I, therefore, propose quite imponi-
tently to continue to declare my belief in tho immense importance of securely founded iricncWiip and understanding between our two countries.
Then, even wheu we are unable at
onco to see eye to eye on any matter
as happned last summer al Geneva,
we may disagree in. filendly "fashion
without loss ot temper or recriminations, or charges and counter-charges,
of bad faith and sinister designs.".

Sextant For Airplanes
Observer Enabled To Read Position
��� Oirect,F.rom instrument
An.'aeroplane sextant v. hich, according to its inventor, will mako possible the findings of posilion from an
aeroplane without lengthy mathematical computations, has been perfected
by H. B^ Kastor, stssistaut professor
of astronomy at the University of
California, it is announced by college
authorities at Berkeley.. '
'The instrument Is: similar to a ship
sextant, but it is so designed that after the necessary observations are
completed tho observer's position, may
bo read, directly from the instrument
without further work. The advantage
of this, it is explained, is to enable
positions to be figured under handi-
caps such as exist in cockpits of aeroplanes or any small ships not equipped wiih chart rooms.
A committee of., university professors has passed on Uie instrument and
found Unworthy of further development. President W. W. Campbell, himself an astronomer,' has _ authorized
tho construction of an adequate working model. If tho instrument fulfils ex"
pectations, tho United States Government will be asked to test it.
The committer explained, however,
lhat the inventor makes uo claim thai
his instrument will displace the ship
sextant, because it is more costly to
manufacture and requirc-s^-muio utro
and ability to use.'

Canada Has Bright Fulure
Prince Of Wales Gives Some Impressions Of Dominion In a'Speech
In London
Responding to a -toast proposed to
him by Hon. P. C. Larkin, Canadian
High Commissioner, at a dinner given
by the Canadian Club in London, the
Prince of -Wales said this year's visit,
was his fourth'to Csinada'and had for
him three outstanding features, namely the diamond jubilee    celebrations,
l'.is enrolment as a member   of   the
Canadian Privy Council, and Mr. Bald-
win aa a (ravelling companion.
"I can assure "Mr. Larkin when he
has Mr. Baldwin as a travelling companion i lien ho has something very
pleasant in store. I have my doubts
whether Air. Baldwin would say the
same .of myself," said thc Prince.
Alluding to his impressions obtsiin-
ed in Csmada, the Prince said: "I
want those impressions to bo shared
by many of my own generation in the
old country, for- Canada, as all of us
must see, is on the threshold of one
of the most astonishing eras of expansion and development ever seen. Exactly how long that will take none of
us knows, but certainly it will occur
in tho lifetime-ol' many cf us, In this
expansion we here should actively cooperate, as Canada desires good
brains, good money, good work ;md if
I havo learned anything in my eight
years experience of the Dominion, it
is that she wants them to' be British.
I would, urge the younger business
men, blessed with imagination and opportunities, to study Canada, her present needs and future possibilities as I
have tried to do. I recommend, them to
have tried lo do. Irccommend them to
step right, over and sec* Canada for
themselves. If they think they cannot
spare thc time lot them remember
there are such thing3 as business holidays." (Laughter and cheers.)

Westbridge News
John Fitzgerald arrived at West-
bridge on Nov. 19th, having come from
Bedford, Ont, He is visiting Mr. and
Mrs. O'Hara andr. family who are relatives of his; also Tom Wisted of Rock
Creek. He speaks very highly of the
good climate here and the great hospitality of the people. He experienced
very cold weather in Alberta in the
harvest fields on .his westward trip.
A very pleasant reception was held
on Tuesday evening, Nov. 22nd, at the
home of* Mr. and Mrs. R. J. McCutcheon in honor of Mr. and Mrs. L. J.
Ferroux, who were married in Carmi
that morning, mention of which was
made in The  Greenwood Ledge last
issue.   Mrs. Ferroux  (Robina), is the
second eldest -daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
McCutcheon.    A    large    number    of
friends were present, all of whom joined in extending! hearty congratulations
to the popular young couple.   After a
sumptuous supper was served the floor
was cleared for dancing, and many
more guests arrived from Rhone, Rock
Creek  and  district.   Music  was  furnished by the Rhone orchestra.   Cummin Abel acted as floor manager and
kept  the crowd well  entertained  by
calling many different dances.   At ten
o'clock the bride and groom were called
to inspect a large number of beautiful and useful gifts.   They were highly"
pleased with them and thanked the
donors for them and also for the good
wishes extended to them.   Many songs
were then sung and at midnight a:
tasty luncheon was served and dancing
was kept up until the Wee sma' hours
when* the bridal couple boarded the
train for their new home in Carmi.
'' There is no real' reason why every
family should not have a Christmas
tree! Last year in North America six
million trees.were used or about one
' tree to ten people.
The question arises���Where do our
Christmas trees come from?   How long
does it take them to grow?   Are* we
' devastating our forests by brightening
up the homes and making millions of
youngsters happy at Christmas time?
Such eminent authorities as Dr.C. D.
Howe, Dean of Faculty of Forestry,
University. of Tornto, and others say
"No." Dean Howe says "an area of
20,000 acres���just thirty square miles���
if set aside and managed for Christmas
tree production, would supply the present  demand for  each  year  for  all
"time."   w-
'The average size of trees sold in New
York last year was six feet. From
Frank Newman, Forester in charge of
the Nursery Station at St, Williams
we learn that Christmas trees (--white
spruce) of this size can be grown inside
of ten years. We find further according
to Frank Sharpe, Ontario Forestry
Branch, and Mr. Kishbaugh' of the
Abitibi Power & Paper Company, that
spruce of average Christmas tree size
in the forest are about fifteen years old
or twenty years for trees of eight to
ten feet in height. '
From this it would appear that the
Chrismas tree industry is not going to
inpoverish the country, but is a legitimate trade.   However, in taking out
Chrismas trees certain rules of conduct
should be observed.   For example to cut
the top off a, perfectly good tree and
leave the body to rot in the bush is a
criminal.���waste' and  unworthy  of  a
respecting citizen.   But to go, into the
bush  and make   a   selection  cutting
where the' trees are too dense will do
no harm.   Further, by using balsam or
cedar as Christmas trees you would be
utilizing the"weed trees" which have
Ilitte or no value for other purposes.
True, the cedar might grow into  a
^_fence, post but the balsam has^little
-that ones taken would soon be replaced
It has come to our atention that vandalism in taking Christmas trees from
other people's property,���even to poa-
. chlng on private plantations���is prevalent.   This is a question of public
morals which should not be tolarated
morals which should hot be tolerated
by any community.
A little thought and care in the
selection of Christmas trees will offset
any posible harm, and may introduce
much happiness at the Yuletide gatherings. """ o

Nanaimo.���In his first public address
of any lenght during the past eighteen
months, Hon. Wiiliam Sloan, minister
of mines, told the members of the B. C.
division of the Canadian Institute of
- Mining and Metallurgy Friday night
that he regarded with suspicion any
'suggestions,that the Placer Act  be
changed. '   '-.''.',   -.-. - -0'
"I always look for the 'nigger in the
woodpile,' when it is proposed that this
act be changed, and I generally find it,"
he said.
Under the Mineral Act, the minister
declared, capital received security of
title and tenure in British Columbia
not obtainable to the same, degree any
place in Canada. As a result, capital
was beginning- to come here in great
volume from all parts of the world.
The minster declared that he would
not stand for fraudulent exploitation
of the public.
"British Columbia is no place for
'mining the public,'" he-said, referring
to his action in; compelling the Associated Milling- & Mining Co.; Ltd. to
withdraw'its stock from market a few
days ago. The company has been given]
the oppurtunity to * corect its adverti- f
sing, but liad not done so, and had
been foiled to quit business, i
British Columbia had suffered from
loose mining flotaticftis in the ,,,, past
and was only now recovering from the
wildcatting of Rossland days. All companies were welcome so long as they
expended at least 65 per cent, of the
money paid for' stock in actual development. WW ; ���   ;���
That the minister intends remaining
with his post as long as possible was
evident from Mr. Sloan's-statement
that he hoped to be minister, of mines
when the annual value of British Columbia mineral production reached
$100,000,000'.       ,       ;    ;'' ^ iT_ .
Mr. Sloan frankly admitted that he
had been mistaken when a few years
ago��he stated fuel oii would soon cease
to be a competitor of British Columbia
coal. ��
Wei-hai-wei what were the characteristics of British rule that he most
appreciated, one would perhaps expect
him to emphasize the comparative
freedom from petty extortion and tyranny, the obvious endeavour (not always successful) to dispense evenhan-
ded justice, the facilities for trade, the
improvement of means of communication. It was not an answer of this
kind, however, that I received from an
intelligent and plain-spoken resident,
to whom I put this-question," R. F.
Johnston says in" Lion and Dragon in
Northern China."
"What/ is it we like best in our
British, rulers? I will tell you, he said.
'Our native roads are narrow pathways,
and very, of ten there is no, room for
two persons to pass unless one yields
the road to the other. When, our last
rulers���the Japanese���met our small-
footed women . ... along such' a
path they never stepped aside to let
the women pass by ."* .'.'. . ;. . ,; An
Englishman, on the contrary, whether
mounted or on foot, always leaves the
road to the woman. He will walk deliberately into a deep snov/drift rather
than let a Chinese woman'1 step off the
dry path. We have to understand that
the men of your honourable country all
act in the same way, and this is
what we like about Englishmen." '
