The eighth annual .Masquerade
Ball staged by the Veterans of the
district passed into history, as the
last strains of Bush's orchestra
died away abbut 3:30 on Tuesday
morning and .the., tired revellers
sought their respective homes
after what everyone agreed had
been the most enjoyable dance
of the series. About 300 people
attended the 'dance coming from
as widely separated places as
Grand Forks on the east and
and Bridesville, Beaverdell and
Carmi on the west. There was
also a good contingent from Rock
Creek, Kettle Valley, Midway and
from several towns in Washing-,
The proceedings opened with
the Grand _ March, everyone on
the floor being masked, and it was
at once evident that the various
costumes were more marked than
ever before. There were also a

won the first prize for the best
lady's ��� costume as a Highland -

"Bonnie Prince Charlie" took
the first prize for men." These

year, though on this occasion Mrs.
Gane of Kettle Valley ran Mrs.
Clarke a very close second.

costume went to Miss O. Morris

"Goofy Golfer," and most cleverly did she carry the part till after
the prize was awarded it was discovered that the actoV was an

We are advised that the Italian
Government has declared by
proclamation of 9th Sept., 1926,
that notes.issued by them,of the
denominations of 25.00 Lire will
cease to have legal course on 31st
���December, 1926, and will be declared worthless on 30th June,
1927. "���' The Council General of
Italy at Montreal desires that
this information shall reach all
Italians residing in Canada, so
that they may have opportunity
I of./redeeming such notes. Such
[notes should be presented to the
Banks before 15th December next
in order that they may carry out
the redemption thereof.
Big game hunting in the surrounding hills has been causing
some - excitement lately. The
buffalo -hunt, in the Covered
Wagon has nothing on our sport.
Pursuing a herd' of wild cattle
through the jungles around Phoenix, with instructions to shoot at
sight has turned out to be a more
strenuous game than some people
imagine. R. Forshaw and W. C.
.Wilson have been working overtime. Bob: says "he wouldn't
chase Eve in the Garden of Eden
as hard as he chased those cattle."
While the gentle bovine were the
ancestors ,'of this herd, the. offspring showed wayward tendencies
in their youth and when- they
came to maturity adopted a,
decidedly wild career. They have
abandoned all intercourse with
civilization and have established
rules of their own.y. They don't
conform to the three mile limit
or the twelve mile limit but adhere strictly to the five hundred
yard limit. Like-many other
bands of outlaws their gang is
being depleted. If the hunters
meet with reasonable success inside of the next week they will all
be hanging in a butchlr shop so
tame anybody can handle them.

World   Benefactors
In one of his rumpus satires. Dean Swift makes the ldng of Brobdingnag
give utterance.to the'opinion that Whoever could make two carg or corn or
two blades of grass to grow upon a spot of ground whore only one grew
belcirc, would deserve bettor of mankind and do moro essential service to hia
country than tho whole race ol' politicians put together.
Certain it is that-while many politicians'" have done an immense amouaL
of good in this world,-many others' hare clone Incalculable harm, but the experi:
mentors and scientists, who have carried out the dictum of Dean Swift's
imaglncry king havc conferred nothing but good upon mankind.
In April last the death occurred of Luther Burbank, of California, popular-)-'
ly known as the plant wizard, at tlie ripe old age of 77 years. Mr, Biirbank
devoted his life to the breeding of plants, and tho results of his remark
able experiments in the-developmeiit of.flowers, fruits and plants of all kinds
aro too well known to require- more telling. He gave added size and beauty
to flowers and developed many new type's; he increased the size aud flavor-of
y many fruits; he Increased the productive power of many plants and trees many
times over. He thus added not only to the beauty of tho world, but to the.
fruit grower, the wealth of the world, and the health of people generally.
Canada, too, has Its plant wizard iu the person of Dr. Saunders, the
creator of Marquis wheat. About twenty-five.years ago Dr. Saunders, after long
and painstaking experiments, succeeded in crossing a kernel of wheat from
* the shores of the Baltic with another kernel of wheat, from the foothills of the
Himalayas and thereby created a new type which produced a larger yield
per acre, made a whiter flour, and ripened in less time and thus avoided
damage i'rom frost. This new-wheat was named Marquis, and from the one
kernel of only about twenty-five years ago, there is now harvested around
tour hundred milliou bushels annually. -Dr. Saunders' work has meant hundreds of millions of dollars to Canada Within the life of the present generation. '  y' "��y ��� ���   '   .     .
Western Canada can also boast of its experimenters through whose
efforts several blades of grass, or wheat, have been made to grow
where only.'one grew before. The name of Seager'1 Wheeler is 'a household
word in the farm homos of this country. He lias shown how the finest wheat
in the world, the wheat whicli year after year captured the world's first
prize; can be grown. He has demonstrated the methods to be followed, aud
lias proven how profitable good farming and proper cultivation "and seed
���selection is as compared with careless and indifferent cultivation, the use of
poor seed and poor farming In general. Seager "Wheeler is now engaged in
demonstrating that apples, pears, plums and other fruits can be successfully
grown on the prairies of Western Canada.
Politicians have a work of importance to do for the country, and in the
doing of it honestly, faithfully, and well they a.i'e deserving of all honor and
loyal support, but nien like Burbank, Saunders, Wheeler, and others whose
names are not so well khoAvri .but who are quietly raising the standard of production, are 'likewise deserving of all the honor their fellow citizens can
bestow upon them. They are doing a work for mankind wliich neither politicians, nor any other group of men can do, and their works will live after them.
The world heaps honors aud riches on the successful politician,���manufacturer, financier, and business man. Too frequently, though, the quiet man ut
work in his garden, field or laboratory, working out through years of study and
experimentation difficult problems whose solution blesses all mankind, remains unrecognized aud without reward.- It is'-gratifying, therefore, to learn
that a body has been created with strong financial backing to carry ou the
work to wliich Luther Burbank. devoted the best years'of his life; that the
Dominion Government has rcognized Dr. Saunders' invaluable research work
��������� by granting him an annuity of some thousands of dollars for life; that leaders
in allvwall.s aud professions in life liave united In. doing honor to Seager
Wheeler.* * ���  ,. .       * *  ..
Over and. above the material achievements of. these really great men, and
th.cdirect benefits they liave conferred ou the world, there is the example of
such lives and the incentive they give to others to strive mightily for greater, better things. The individual farmer who is earnestly striving to make his
farm a model for the community in which he lives, Avho��� wages unceasing warfare on weeds,-who gives close attention-to the cultivation of his soil, insists
��� on good, clean seed., who eliminates scrubs from his herds and houses his
cattle in clean and sanitary buildings, or "the farm wife who takes a pride in
her,poultry, in the-quality, of the 'milk and cream sent to the creamery, or tho

To those, who see in the phenomenal
prosperity of .the United States aud
the magnetic attraction It has for" the
people *of'Canada,, a tendency which
might some day easily lead, to a weakening of the ties that bind Canada to
the-Britlsh Empire, our present economic position is not entirely''reassuring.
Because history shows that in. the
course of time economic considerations
will invariably prevail over patriotic
sentiment. While we cannot hope to
outstrip our powerful neighbor, we
can come much nearer creating opportunities'for our own people.at home
than we are doing at present and thus
arresting the debilitating leak of our
preqous, vital asset and stifling the In-
feriority . complex we liave unconsciously created in our public mind,
which, cannot be without its important
influence upon the individual'decision
leading'to southbound migration.    "'
It* is useful to. arrive at a -clear appreciation of the general economic
effect of an enlarged agriculture. The
average person readily gives intellectual, assent to the time-worn phrase
that agriculture is the "backbone of
the nation," but usually without positive conviction or any adequate' conception of the fundamental facts of the
case. It Is generally a mere figure of
speech.'* It' is, therefore, well to consider briefly to what- exte*ut agriculture
has been responsible for. Canada's material progress. Forty-one per cent of
our net production in the last census
year was agricultural; thirty-three per
cent- manufacturing; our forests,
mines, fisheries, construction etc., account for the remaining twenty-six per
cent.; Our 8 billions of -agricultural
capital represents 36 per cent of Canada's total available wealth. Urbanl
real estate accounts for 26 percent,
our railway plants, 10 per cent; for-
es.ts, 5% per cent; mines, 2% per cent,
and manufacturing equipment, 2% per
cent.   .*'���'���
This gives a Hue on the paramount
position of our agricultural industry
and suggests that a policy having in
view the cololfizalion of Canada's vacant lands along vigorous lines, would
speedily lead to increased, prosperity
inour urban centres and should interest all classes of Canadians irrespec-
tlve'of occupation. The Hon. - Mr.
Forke, Canada's new Minister of Immigration, has recently-announced his
intention of speeding up the work of
his department overseas. It Is hoped
that his efforts.will meet with every
success..,.;' His department squarely
faces'. Canada's'key problem.  ,

. U.G.G. Transacts Large Volume
of Business
Nearly nine milliou pound/s ot binder
twine were-handled by United Grain
Gowers for the harvesting of the L926
crop.   Tills makes a total of over forty
million^ pounds of  twine handled by
the company during   the   past   five
pounds ��� of twine. since  the". company
first went into the twine business; Before 1914,- when,   the t company,   the
Grain Growers' Grain  Company first'
"undertook the distribution  of binder
twine it was impossible i'or a farmers' organization ' to   buy    twine   at
wholesale prices, and*-the company in
spile of its large purchasing power,
-had-a good deal of diiliculty in making
purchases atvilrst..  For a time It was
necessary to import   twine   made . in
Ireland.   Before that time twine was
handled only through certain well-defined retail  channels', and'tho retail-
profits allowed added from two to^four
cents a pound to .the-.cost of twine.
Now,"thanks'lo the work done by the
farmer's company, a large part of the
twine   used   is   distributed   through
farmer organizations, at U.G.G. elevators and by local associations. Tho total savings to farmers that have resulted are noc easy to calculate, but
probably two million dollars less has
been paid by farmers for U.G.G. .twine
than thoy would have had to pay under   conditions   formerly   prevailing,
and still prevailing to a certain extent in parts  of lhe country where
there is no competition-from farmers*
organizations in the haudllng of twine.
But-that is only a part of the saving
to farmers, because this competition
has brought about a lower scale of
prices ou twine all oyer the'country,
resulting in savings of many millions.
More than two milliou.dollars' worth
of farm supplies are handled each year'
by United   Grain  Growers.   -Besides
binder.twine oue of the largest items
Is hour.and feed, of which last yeai
5,680    tons were sold, nearly all at
elevators' equipped  with flour sheds.
The value of this was 5308,433, and
during the paM five years flour and
feed to the value of over $1,580,000
have been distributed.   The coal business of the company amounts to.,over
half a million dollars each year, more
than two thousand carloads being handled.  While most of this goes through
elevator coal stieds, a good deal Is sold
through local associations, which before the  company  entered  the  field
were unable to buy coal at wholesale

As a result of tho 'Locarno .spirit
pe_-mo.iiin�� to scicnlifto quarters, polar
research and discovery enthusiasts
have decided to put aside national
"jealousies and pool their efforts as' a
means, of conquering the littlo known
lop ef tho world. The first get-together party under lhe new spirit took
place in Berlin, November 0' to 12,
wiih (he foremost scientists in this
field from Germany, Franco, England:
Italy,' Russia, Norway and America,
taking part. ,
Dr. Fridtjof Nansen played an important-role in this meeting wliich was
promoted, by' tho International Student Society. Professor L.- A. Uauer of
the Carnegie Institute in Washington
represented America, Sir Napier Shaw,
noted meteorologist, appeared for England, and Captain Walter Brans, Zeppelin pilot .'uad founder, of-the' International Sfudon-. Society, represented

The convention enabled the scientists to study lhe adaptability of lho
super-Zeppelin now being constructed
at Friedrichshafon under direction of
Captain ECkener, designed for polar
observations and discoveries because
of its wide, flying raSius and ils ability '
to land parlies without-anchor masts

touch of naval humor, was officially
labelled "lunch."
The visitors travelled from London
lo Portland on a special train and
were welcomed aboard the Re^nge by
Admiral Sir Percy'Oliver, commander-
in-chief of tlie Atlantic fleet. The
operations opened immediately after
the Revenge nosed out of Portland
harbor. Submarines appeared, dived

>r_.turn to.again be attacked. Under cover of smoke screens which hid them
completely, destroyors hunched torpedoes hgainst' the flagship. Again a
hit was scored. But that was the last
of the warfare. While the whole Atlantic fleet accompanied the Revenge
back to Portland, the visitors were eu-
tcrtained at tea,
to reconnoitre. Mine sweepers cleared
the way and the Revenge steamed
ahead, its paravance out, and detached
mines floating harmlessly by.
But the mine fields were only the

The tropics are not the ouly place lo
go for tropical -.weather. If man could
over get there, he would fine a tropical
climate far above tho earth. At very
high altitudes the air becomes extremely warm, according to Dr. II. II.
Turner, professor of astronomy at
Oxford University. This statement has-
been confirmed by observations of meteors entering the earth's atmosphere.
Although aviators can only get a few

the observation of meteors, or shooting stars, extends knowledge of our atmosphere up to about fifty milys.    ���

Late lark F. Madden
Chicago, III.���Mark F. Madden, a
prominent, business uitin of this city,
died on Oct. 81st. Mr. Madden was
born in Whitby, ��� Ont.., Canada, on
* : .Ti'ino IS, lBaij. He was raised on a
. farm until his loth year when he entered the employ of T. Long & Bros,
of Colli ngwood, at a salary of $50 per
year and board. Before he had been
there six months they increased his
salary- to $300 per year. Later he
went to Toronto, Toledo, Louisville,
Ky., arriving in Chicago in 1S83 engaging with Mandel Bros, in their silk
department. In 1SS5, with his brother
Michael S. he entered the real estate
business and established tlie firm of
Madden'Bros, aud 'continued at the
head of fhe Jinn up lo the time of his
death. Ho worked untiringly to develop a successful, prosperous business
which lias occupied the same offices
in thev Marquette Bldg. for the past 32
years? Bub his proudest boast was
that seven brothers were actively
engaged with him in the business for
several years.       /:
In 1901 he purchased 'an interest, in
the Providence Miue near Greenwood,
B 0. At that time the shaft was only
40 feet deep. He developed this to the
000 foot level, find uncovered a lead of
high grade silver ore oyer 1400 feet
long; said to be the longest unbroken
lead of rich ore in the Province of
British Columbia. In this connection
one incident afforded Mr. Madden a
great deal of satisfaction. It was
this: The Manager-of the Bank of
Montreal once said to hin.: "Mr.
Madden the majority of capitalists
.promise ' to bring money later, but
you are the first one to telegraph yonr
��� money .before getting here." "Another
was that' after some litigation in tbe
mine he paid off bills to the amount of
about $(5,000.00 which he was not
legally' bound to pay, bub for which he
felt morally responsible as the, credit
was given oil account of his connection
with the mine.      '    '���'

The Game Reserve
Carmi, B.C., Nov. 3rd, 1926.
Editor of The Greenwood Le.lge.
Dear Sir:
I would like to beg space in
your valuable.paper for a few remarks
regarding the so-called game reserve
between the West Fork of the Kettle
River and the Main River. In the first
place the portion.of it extending from
Westbridge up to the mouth of the
East Fork of the West Fork and on the
Main River to the mouth of Copper
Creek, contains probably 60 ranches
and crown granted places besides 400
or 500* mineral claims and two towns,
"Westbridge with about 40 registered
voters and Beaverdell with about 135
voters, besides about 15 working mines.
Now, these farms have been improved to the extent of thousands
of x dollars and crown granted
years before the Rod and Gun Club of
B.C. came in existence,.-therefore, I dp
not see how they can confiscate those
places to make a game reserve' out of
them unless the government appraises
them and pays the owners.
I myself do not intend to live up to
the regulations and I.know many more
that look at.it the same as I do.
Now, Mr. Editor, I think that the
Greenwood and Eock Creek Rod and
Gun Club did not give the matter the
serious thought that should have been
taken before thej' recommended that
reserve aud we sincerely, hope and believe thejr will now try and reined}' the
matter by recommending the cancellation of that portion of the reserve from
Westbridge on the West Fork up to the
mouth of the East Fork or'Trapper
Creek following up that stream, to the
summit and Copper Creek to the Main
River, that would leave the northern
portion for a game reserve which has
no settlements and probably will never
be settled. Now, if yoti will give this
feeble' effort space T will thank you
very much.    I am
Yours very sincerely,
[Editor's Note���The Greenwood and
District Rod & Gun Club was the last
organization to be consulted in this
matter and the reserve would have
begn formed irrespective of the. wishes
of the above club.]
