With the Curlers
The curtain was drawn in the
local curling season on Monday
when the final game was played
in the -.Potato competition, in
which Gregory defeated Gulley.
The winning rink will have the
honor of presenting R. Forshaw^s
donation of 1-2 ton of potatoes
to the District Hospital.
The curlers have certainly enjoyed themselves this year, and
had no difficulty in finishing all
competitions^ The ice is still
good and it is likely that a few
scratch games'will be played this
week.
A. Watson, president of the
Fernie Curling Club, on Saturday,
in a points competition, made the
high score of 54 points. This feat
is considered of Dominion-wide
importance, because as far as can
be learned in Fernie, the present
world's record for points in curling has heretofore stood at 51.
This figure was set by A. H.
Dunbar of Winnipeg, a few years
ago.     '*)_��� .
Westbridge
A very enjoyable and well attended Card Party was held at
Westbridge on Feb. 26th, the
tables being kept busy until the
games were all played. The prize
winners were: Mrs. O'Hara,

2nd; Muriel Emery, booby; Dave
Rose, gents 1st; John Saunier,
2nd, and V. Favrin! the boobyi-
After card playing a very sociable
dance was held, Mr. Mitchell,
Charlie and Billy Worthington, of
.Rhone, and E. Cousins furnishing excellent music. All present
had a good time.
Consolidated Encourages
Local Mining
The desire of the Trail smelter
management to encourage small
shippers was "well illustrated recently. A car of 51 tons of high
grade silver-lead ore from the
Wellington mine left Beaverdell
on Feb. 18th. Through ,the willing co-operation of K. V. and
C. P. R. officials this car landed
at Tadanac on the evening of the
20th.' Special arrangement was
granted by the Consolidated management for immediate sampling
and assaying and on Feb. 24th
this was completed and , settlement mailed to the ��� Wellington
Syndicate.
_ This shipment went 300.7 oz in
silver to the ton which is well up
to the average Wellington grade.
For the first two months of-1927
this promising property has shipped 121 tons of ore and another
50 ton car will leave on March
4th, representing ore extraction
for the last 12 days. 'With" one
exception all the employees at the
Wellington have their homes in
Greenwood. ��� .  -    -

from the Spotted Horse to -Trail

"Kids Hockey Party"
On Friday,' February 25th, a
very enjoyable party, was given
by Dr. and Mrs. A. Francis to
the Greenwood Hockey Club. ��� .
The invitations were sent out
with instructions to appear in
juvenile attire as this was a "kids
party." Some of the replies were
unique. When stately schoolmams-
replied on torn paper with poor
spelling-and^severai^blbts^there""
was no doubt about the spirit of
the affair permeating the guests
before they arrived. Some replies were in Chinese some in
Chinook.
About 40 guests arrived and���
costumes���they were a show in
themselves. Miss Vera Kempston
received first prize���girl, while
Edward Johnson - received first
prize���boy.
The party was divided in four
���teams Dogs, Cats, Roosters,.
Donkeys. Each -person' was presented with an elaborate paper
hat made up of the team colors.
Of the forty hats no two were
designed alike. Thanks to Miss
Lela Brennan. Then the fun
started. From 9 q'clock till.2 the
bunch simply howled and shrieked
with laughter. ,
A track meet of twelve events
was the order of the evening. As
each event was announced one or
more contestants from each team
stepped forward and the way
their supporters cheered them on
to victory was beyond description.
The Roosters, captained by Eddie
Morrison, were the winning team
and were presented with souvenir
hockey sticks.
Miss Vera Kempston made a
presentation  to W.   Wilson.   It
was a very amusing cartoon of a
man playing a saxaphone.   -Numerous verses from the pen of Miss
Lela Brennan, were attached.   If
Bill had any doubt ��� about what
the public thought of his musical
aspirations,   he is now in  the
position of the man who knows.
.   About   midnight  ,some   very'
novel refreshments were served.
This again stimulated the excite-
1 ment after which dancing was the
| next item which continued till the
; wee small hours when the party
' dispersed everyone declaring that
they had never spent a more enjoyable evening.   Thus the "Kids
Hockey Party" of 1927- passed
t into history but it is hoped there
'will be another next year. THE   ttBEEN WOOD   LEJJGB

"For five years I was in misery. My
whole system seemed out of gear, hut
my stomach troubled most. Even a
���drink of cold waler would cause my
���stomach to bloat and swell abnormally. Gas would prevent mo from
sleeping nt night so that I had to get
np and walk the floor for hours. Violent stomach pains nearly drove mo
wild. I've seen times when 1 was
doubled over, unable lo straighten up.
"My friend M. Lapontc told* mo
how Tanlac had helped him out of
similar l.ro ublc, so I go t some and used
8 bottles in all. It just made rnc over.
I feci 30 years younger than I am, and

Is tlie Vote Wortk Having?
Do the people of Canada, and. other countries enjoying the rights,
���privileges and liberties which responsible government confers "upon them,
��� fully appreciate the value of these possessions?
Recalling tlie long and bitter struggles that took place, first in Great
Britain and later in Canada, as well as in practically all countries  now
���under democratic institutions, for the right of the franchise, it would almost
. seem absurd to ask if people valued that which was so dearly won. Inquire
��� of almost any Canadian citizen and the reply would unhesitatingly be:
"Of course,   I  value  my  rights  of  c'.tizenship."  Actions,   however, speak
.louder than words, and how do thousands of Canadians make answer to
-this question when deeds rather than words are required?
The Chief Electoral Oflicer for Canada has recently prepared a statement of votes cast throughout the Dominion in the general election of last
September, showing tbe total to be ?.,27",062, The Dominion census of 1921
gave the population of Canada as S,7SS,4S3. Using round numbers it may
be assumed that the population was al. least. 9,000,000 in 1926." Of ihese
9,000,000 approximately one-half would be represented Ly those under 21
.years   of ago   or  un-naturalized  adults,- leaving   about  4,d00,000   qualified
-voters.   To he quite within the mark, say 4,250,000.
In other words, approximately one million citizens of Canada qualified
to vote, or almost 25 per cent, of all voters, held their right to the franchise
���In such small esteem that they did uot take the trouble to go-to the polling
'booths in a general election to decide questions of national policy, involving
the personnel and policy of the National Government for the next five years.
This Canadian showing, while not one lo which our people can point
-with pride, is decidedly better thau the United. Slates record, where in the
elections1.'of last November, when thirty-four Slate governors, thirty-five
senators, the entire House of Representatives, nearly all the members of
state legislatures, and thousands of municipal, county and other officials
���were elected,- only one-third of tho qualified voters wont to the polls, the
��� other two-thirds refusing to use thcir freedom and take upon their
���shoulders the duties and responsibilities of citizenship.
The people oT Great Britain discharge the duties of citizenship better
than   elsewhere   in   the -Empire, with tho  exception  of. Australia.    But.
.Australia     votes     under ' pressure     and     compulsion.      Although    the
���Commonwealth has equal adult suffrage, such a large porporiion of its
people refused to use the ballot that compulsory voting was established,
.and with good results so far as getting the people to tho polls is concerned.
���In the last federal election in Australia and in a more recent national
plebiscite, 90 per cent, of Lhe total registered, vote was pollcd.--
Is it not, however, passing strange that mon and women must be com-
<-pelled. undor pain of a fine imposed for failure to vote, to discharge the
first obligation of their citizenship?
As one  publication, commenting on��lhi.�� amazing apathy on thc part
���of a large section of the people, very truly says, no country can be well
governed where only the professional political elements interest themselves in elections. Unfortunately a great percentage of those who refuse
to vote have the curious conceit that they are the superior classes;  fhat
���politics Is something beneath them.   Such people are, in fact, less worthy
���citizens than .the professional ward .workers, in our large" cities.	
Was Once Smugglers Haunt
If Canadian citizenship is worth anything, it is worth af least the trouble involved on election day of going to the polls and exercising the
������franchise which such.citizenship confers.
Nearly Hundred Years Old
"Experiments Made in 1835 With Electrically  Propelled   Cars
Electric propulsion of cars dales
���as far back as 1835, when Thomas
Davenport, of Vermont, and-in' 1S3S
"Robert Davidson, of Scotland, both
ran experimental cars by voltaic batteries carried on the car. It was not,
however, until the dynamo electric
���machine was perfected, so as lo re-
���duce the cost of current, that any
���practical system was devised.
The Portrush and Giant's Causeway, England., electric tramway, in
1883, was the first line in tho United
'Kingdom which took tho current from
,a conductor.
The coldest time of the day;is thc
'hour just after sunrise, according to
scientists.    This is explained by thc
fact that when the sun  strikes the
���earth it causes the evaporation of a
��� chilling moisture.
A British army regiment recently
���returned from ... Constantinople to
-England, after being, absent 18 years
.and having served in eight countries.
Incident Worth Mentioning
Union  Jack  Drooped   From   Lauren-
tic's  Maimr>ast  When  Located
by. Diver
The slory of how the 'gold, on the
White Star liner Laurentic, sunk by
the Germans ia the war, was recovered hy divers operating from tbe
Admiralty steamer Racer, now about
to he sold, is one of the most thrilling In the history of sea salvage. One
Incident that was thought too trivial
to he recorded at the time is worth
mentioning now, for the touch of the
sea tradition it brings into the story.
The Laurentic sailed from New York
in January, 1917, her strong room
filled with gold and silver worth
about ��5,000,000. She was struck by
German torpedoes off Lough Swilly
and sunk in 120 feet or water. After
two years an effort was made to salvage! Jiud then when a diver went
down from the Racer he found, drooping from the Laurenlic's mainmast, a
faded flag with several rents in it���
the Union Jack.
But Now St. Helen's is England's
Most Moral Village
St. Helen's, Isle of Wight, is undoubtedly England's most moral village. So good and peace-loving are
the inhabitants lhat the local police
station has been closed.
A policeman from Scaview, a few
miles away, cycles to the village
every day as a matter of form. The
time of his arrival is known to all.
Ue Is greeted, with smiles. There is
never anything serious Ior him to do.
Thirty years ago things wero different. Strangers had to be careful if
they visited this tiny hamlet after
dark. The inhabitants distrusted
visitors, and wero apt to show their
dislike. A notorious gang of smugglers had their headquarters here
and quantities of rum and contraband goods passed into tho island for
transport to London.
Innocent little thatched cottages or
the crypt or a neighboring church
wero used as hiding places by the
smugglers. The police and the
revenue men were never idle.
RHEUMATIC VICTIMS
Can Find Relief Through Building Up the Blood
Pain is the symptom of rheumatism that every victim recognizes,
and he generally attributes the trouble to cold, damp or changeable
weather. But doctors know that thin
blood is a marked characteristic ol
the trouble. Trying to cure rheumatism while the blood remains thin
and poor, is an impossible (ask because there Is nothing to build on. A
lonic^ like Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
lhat enriches the blood and frees it
from poisonous impurities soon banishes rheumatism from the system.
So long as the blood is maintained, in
a healthy condition the trouble will
not return. This is not theory. I't
has been proved in hundreds of
cases; here Is one:���Mr. J. W. Rose,
R.R. 2, Albany, P.E.I., says:���"For
some" years 1 was a great sufferer
from rheumatism and although I
tried a great many remedies, I did
not get any permanent relief until after I took Dr. Williams* Pink Pills.
The trouble was located mostly in my
shoulders, and at times was so bad
that my. right arm was almost useless. Of course I suffered much pain
and great inconvenience. My attention was directed to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills through an advertisement
in our newspaper, and I decided to
try .them. I took the pills according
to directions with tho result that the
rheumatism lias left me, and. I have
never had a twinge.of it since. IfMhls
meets the eye ef any rheumatic suf-
lercr my advice is try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills at once."
.you can gel these pills from any
medicine dealer or bv mall at 50 cents
a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Cnt.
Money's Power in Russia
Only T^ose Who Are Rich Can Hope
to Succeed
It is evident lhat the counlry has
moved very far since the heroic days
when money, banks and commerce
were suppressed, and when every privately-owned shop or farm was considered as a crime against Communism But-It Is even worse than that.
11~ app ears~tod ay ~ihat~ to~~b e~able ~to
succeed in Russia, and to -acquire
power, it is necessary before everything to have money. At the last
elections to the rural Soviets, out of
S30.000 elected, 750,000 delegates did
not belong to the Communist Party.
Three-fourths of the presidents of the
rural Soviets were koulaks, or rich
peasants, who have given up manual
labor themselves and. are content to
make others work for them.

"What does the Old Country market want in wheat from Wostein
Canada?" asked Dean Rutherford. Is
answering his own question he pointed out that Western Canadian wheal
was spring wheat and should be hard,
\ilreous, glutinous wheat to meet the
requirements of the Old Country
market.
"Amateur wheat breeders put new
varieties on the market before they
are properly tried out in the matter
of strength and color," he declared,
"aud if you put a dark wheat on tho
markets of the world you are going
to lower the color standard."
Dean Rutherford said it was. expected that the work started at the
University of Saskatchewan in 1926
with a view to finding out. the factors
influencing the storage of . protein
quantity and quality in wheat would
be enlarged in tho near future and
co-related with field husbandry
work.
In The meantime the field husbandry association could exert its influence In respect to tho purification ot
seed sown in tho fields of Saskatchewan and get a large number of farmers" interested in the purity of seed.
Through the Wheal "Pool organization with its 80,000 members and
and through other farm organizations
the field husbandry association could
got information out quickly to the
people on the farms.

Following a meeting at which Sir
Alan related his experiences jn flying
from Great Britain to Australia and

The committee will' investigate the

In urging the formation of light

The household or large box of 400

the reduction in the   excise   tax  on
matches announced by Finance Minister Robb in the Budget speech.. It-.,
will mean a reduction of one cent In.
the retail price of the large box, according to a largo match producing
factory here.   __ The    present   excise
duty on the large sized box of matcM
es is four cents, so that the 25 per

will make the excise tax three cents .

unlikely that the retail price of the.

We receive thousands of letters

Pills, who have been relieved of
suffering from kidney and bladder
trouble. When Nature fails to do
her proper work of eliminating
harmful waste through the kidneys, bladder and bowels, a remedy
must be found. Many people have
found Gin Pills to be this remedy.
Among them, James Johnson of.
Bridgeburg-, Ont.   He writes:
"I -was trontled with pains across
thc kidneys for two years. I was
unable to do any work. I read about
Gin Pills and Rot a box right away
from my druggist My sincere thanks
are due yon for your wonderful rem- -
edy, which has done so much for me."

A delicate compliment was paid to
Canada' by the  United States when
she appointed a full-Hedged ambassador to be the first minister-plenipotentiary to this country.   In accepliug
. the position, Mr.    William    Phillips,
who has had charge of the American
embassy in   Delgium, ' will   be   acquiescing in a   reduction   of   salary
lrom $17,500 tod $10,000 por year, the
Ameiican salaries   for   ambassadors
and ministers being standardized.
Mr.-Phillips is one of the most
capable men in the diplomatic service of the United Slates. He was
highly regarded by President Roosevelt and President Wilson and used
by them in connection with much
porlant work.   He
unserved in. various
edacities in London, China and Hoi
land.   He was first in London as pri
vate secretary to the ambassador in
1903 and  was  back again six years

Further Tax Cut Coming
: Still lurther reductions in British
. Columbia taxation, in addition to those
announced in the budget, will be arranged by the government.during- the
next few days, Hon. J- D. MacLean,
minister of finance, announced in the
Legislature Friday night.      ;' _.*
'"There will be further reductions in
[taxation, which/I. did not mention in
the budget speech'," the minister stated;
"From these, m fact, I imagine the
opposition will conclude that there will
be a'provincial election, not in June, as
they anticipated before, but in April or
"   May." ���.*;   . '*.' 7
This intimation came during a discussion of Dr. MacLeau's new  bills
covering the taxation  reductions announced in the budget.   One of these
bills, he explainedfniakes reductions in
"the  succession   duty taxation of   the
,  province, with the result that it will be
lower in future than any other province
of Canada.   Estates are now taxable
:'  at rates varying from one-half of one
7'* per cent., where they are small, to 47
per cent, where they run into millions,
but iu future the rates will run from
one-half cf one per ceiiTto 20 per cent.
"In other words," the minister said,
"we have cut our rates about _33 per
cent. [.[,.
.    The former exemption of $10,000 in
=^==the4axation=ofcestates,=he.,stated,Js__b_e_.
ing raised to $20,000.
The most important change, however, was the abolition of double succession duties in the case of persons
who own property outside the province.
In future, he explained, British Columbia will collect no taxes on property
_ left by deceased person in some other
province, where it is being taxed.
jlnsuranccTwillbe exempt up to. $50,-
000, under the new plan, he added.
By an amendment to the Probate
Duty Act the minister puts real property in the same class as personal
property, make them both liable to the
same dues.
