New Strike on D. A.
The recent strike of ore on the D.A.
is receiving considerable" favorable
comment . in Greenwood. The.. new
find is'^a^contihuation'-of'the' Gold-Bug"
lead. The paystreak is stripped for
100 feet, with every -possibility of it
extending a greater distance.   .
Prospectors have hunted for this
vein for * 30 years, but .up to a few
weeks ago its whereabouts had remained a mystery. Jas. Skilton who
has unbounded faith in this property
has never given up. He and his son,
Reggie, along with Scott McRae have
done intensive prospecting with results which are not' only gratifying to
themselves, but to the community at
In. the early days ore from the Gold
Bug" (abjoinin& claim) was packed on
horses, transferred to wagons and
hauled to Marcus a distance of 65
miles, thence to the Tacoma smelter,
and then payed' handsome dividends
Now transportation is more economical
as the CP.Railway is' about V> mile
from the new find.

'aint a Corn With
This Marvel Liquid
In the great luuion-building work of settling the vast plains of Western
Canada one objection to-overcome with many intending settlers, especially
from Ontario and other countries where woods and forests prevailed, was
the lack of trees. To those accustomed to living in a treed country, llie bare I .Tight shoes won't hurl anymore. Tho

reach, presented a barren, uninviting. appearance.. There was not only a
lack of that restfulness and beauty wliich trees provide, but an absence o��
proLocLlon from Llie elements when high winds prevailed, the snows drifted,
and blizzards occasionally blew.
During tho earlier days in ' the settlement of the West, many ���home
seekers travelled/ long distances from the area traversed by the'railway
to find locations In districts where there were trees because.;'what, they
wanted, was not a.mere temporary place where they could "mine" the soil
for a time, make some ready money quickly, and then get out, but a now
and permanent home for their children''avIiere they would have a better
ppporlunily in life than in the* lauds from 'which, tliey liad come. They put
up wiih inconveniences inseparable from '-their isolated) locations' "solely
because they preferred the wooded districts to the open, seemingly
unattractive prairies. *������*
In those early * days, * however, thousands of. people dame and took up
homesteads who had no intention of establishing permanent homes. They
f.'ere speculators, more or. less ..indifferent to their surroundings, concerned
only wiih the making of money as rapidly as possible. Tliey were quite frank
in admitting they had no thought of flaking the West-'their home for the
remainder of their lives, but that, on the contrary, they were using it as a
half-way house, a stepping stone to some other and better place. Many
came wiih thc idea of .making money which thoy could not accumulate in
their old Eastern homes and then returning there to live and ultimately die.
Some years ago the fact was borne into tiie minds-of tho Federal
Government that lhc problem of peopling the WesL was not -so' much one ot
immigration as of colonization; not so much the obtaining of settlers as
the retaining of them once they had come, in a word, the real problem was
how to gel people to regard the West as a place of permanent residence; liow
to gel peoplo to establish homes rather than mere dwelling places.
It came to .be realized that a farm house, stables and barns set dowfMn
the midst of a flat prairie, utterly lacking in-anything approaching beauty
of location and surroundings, could never appeal as a "home," and could
never inspire in .the-minds and-hearts of children that affoction._.wliich the
parents still retained, for the old'homes they had left. And il was realized
ihat'jwhat was needed to convert those prairie dwelling places'into real aud
permanent homes'was "trees."

Speed Hard To Imagine
Expect    English    Racing    Plane
Travel 300 Miles An Hour
Some weeks ago an English army
odicer, in a speed test- oa a Florida
beach, drove Iiis car at a speed of
207 miles an hour. This is the greatest raLo of travel ever made in any
sorl of machine driven on land or
sea. But iL is reported that an an-
plane has been made in England for
a forthcoming race which can develop
a speed of 300 miles an hefur.
It is not easy to realize what it
would moan lo travel at such0a rate
of speed: Tho fastest express trains
rarely go faster than sixty or seventy
miles an hour, Three hundred miles
an hour is a speed greater than the
avorago velocity developed by a human being falling from a great
height. Tlie French airman -lean van
Laerc, flying over Beaumont-sur-Oisu,
goi into difficulties at an altitude of
moro than- four miles, and jumped
wiih his parachule-from the machine.
Tlie parachute did not open until ho
was only 300 feet from the ground,
but In, time to save his life. From tho
moment ho jumped until the moment
the parachute. opened he fell four
miles in about seventy seconds. Tliat
is at the average, rale of 206 miles an
hour. And .tho mystery plane will, it
is said, be capable of a speed 50' per

the right way to. plant and cultivate them, still existed. Then the Dominion
Government inaugurated one of! the finest of its many splendid, services for'
agriculture when it.established,-forestry farms in the West.
These farms havc worked a .veritable revolution in the appearance of
this Western country. Established; us tliey wcrc, on the bare prairie, in a
few years thcy were converted into miniature forests. .From them liave
gone forth millions of trees, /distributed fre'e of'charge to .'farmers allcver-tlie

Trees havc proven a great and effective agent of! colonization, while at the.
same lime providing shelter for stock, protection for''gardens..and a.comfort

Prairie cities, towns and villages have caught, the spirit and learned the
> lesson taught by these forestry^ farms, and formerly wholly unattractive
places, as, for example, the capital city of Saskatchewan," whom nature failed
to endow with any "of her assets, havo become places, of real beauty which
are a source of pride and delight'to their residents, and of surprise and

Will Protect Fur Industry
Tax  On   Pelts   Taken   In. Northwest
Territories   Effective   January
1, 1929
The act imposing a tax on furs taken in tho Northwest Territories,
passed at the- last session of Parliament, will come into ' operation on
January 1st, 1929, according to an
announcement by the Hon, Charles
Stewart, Minister of the Interior.
Tlie tax in these territories was imposed by the Dominion in order tb
place them on the samo basis as the
various provinces, which with the exception of Prince Edward Island, impose a tax on furs to aid provincial'
revenues. The tax will be on the same
basis per pelt as in flic prairie provinces and British Columbia, and will
Load to prevent smuggling of furs
from these provinces into the Territories for sale.
It is expected, also that conservation of fur-bearers "will bo promoted
by thc new law in several ways. Permits will be required lo ship out furs
ancl in order to prevent the smuggling of valuable small pelts in shipments of nontaxable furs- such as.
wolf skius, all pelts will b<r examined
and fi tan mod.
This it is believed will chc.ci the
pernicious practice of taking unprimc-
when not in prime winter condition.
Furthermore, lhi3 examination wil!
show the actual take of furs both by
species ancl�� by districts, and provide
data whicli will be of value from a
conservation standpoint.

Road Connection
With Kettle River
(Kelowna Courier)
The announcement that the directorate of the Automobile Club of British
Columbia has endorsed the proposal
for road connection between .Kelowna
and the West Kettle River, and is"ac-
tively canvassing the Provincial Government on its behalf, is very gratifying to all who desire to have established direct means of communication between the Okanagan and the
mining camps of Beaverdell and Carmi,
but it.is to be hoped that the merits
of an alternative route from Kelowna
will receive careful investigation before
deciding upon utilisation of the existing
'road"to McCulloch as part of the proposed highway. We refer to the, possibilities of a route through Joe Rich
Valley to the Kettle River, a scheme
which was advocated two or three years
ago but since has sunk into obscurity..
It is claimed that there is a pass at
the east or south-east end of Joe Rich
Valley which crosses the mountain range between the Okanagan water sys-
- tern and the Kettle River at a considerably lower elevation than McCulloch',
which is 4,144 feet above sea level:
The elevation at the Baillie property,
which is the furthest east of any cultivated land in the Joe Rich Valley
is 3,000 feet, so that, if the pass is really . a good deal lower than the McCulloch
summit, there should be a comparatively easy grade to it from the Joe Rich.
' It is said that there are really two
passes, but that one of them is a nar-
rowjiox canyon strewn with huge boulders, which would involve a great deal
of costly blasting in order to make a
roadway, and that the other, although
at a higher elevation, offers a more
feasible  and.  less  expensive  route.
Provided that a.feasible pass can
be found, there are several strong
points in favour of the Joe Rich route
as .compared with that via McColloch.
In the-first place; there is a considerable quantity of good agricultural
land along Mission Creek and a large
area is under cultivation in the Joe
Rich Valley, while the country between
the K. L. O. Bench and the McCulloch
is practically uninhabited and little of
it is fit for production. Connection
with the mining camps round Beaverdell and Carmi would provide the
farmers of Joe Rich with a ready market for the vegetables and other produce grown there and would aid in the
development of suitable land along
Mission Creek which is lying idle at-
present or is devoted only to pasture.
Another important consideration is
that the existing road to the Joe Rich
Valley is a fairly good one and can easily be improved into an excellent
highway at comparatively low cost.
Betterments are gradually being effected, a' marked improvement being
the construction some two years ago
of an entirely, new section of road from
the Rutland Post Office to the Belgo,
over which any ordinary car can travel in high gear. While the grade of
the climb over the Buttes has, also
practically no difficulties beyond some
sharp curves, it is understood that the
provincial authorities have under consideration a plan to eliminate the But-
�� tes altogether by a new route following
the bank of Mission Creek. ���> In any
case, compared with the road to McCulloch, tfiat to Joe Rich is much superior, both in surface and average
It was understood early in the year
that an, appropriation was to be made
for completion of the missing link between McCulloch and Carmi, but nothing further has been.heard of the
mattel-. The action of the directors of
the Automobile Club of B. C. in endorsing road connection between the Okanagan and the Kettle River may result
in some  definite  steps being  taken,
- and it is hoped that before the project
is committed to any particular route
a thorough examination will be made
of the country between Joe Rich and
the Kettle River to ascertain beyond
question whether there is a practicable
pass at a lower elevation than the
McCulloch divide.

Famous Fairy Stories
.  "I'll'pay you next week."
"Why dear! I never look at another
"You don't look a day over twenty."
Away back in the late, sixties thousands
of acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price���then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of today will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire and
allowed to reach maturity.
