Grand Forks Citizen
Dies Very Suddenly
(Grand Forks Gazette)
Grand Forks was shocked Wednesday evening --when it became known
that George Armson had expired suddenly following supper in his home
at seven o'clock. He had left the
lable\and was sitting with his daughter, .Gladys, who had arrived en lhe
five o'clock train and just asked her
to tell him of her work when he fell
over in his chair without aa word of
warning. It came as a very great
blow to his wife and daughter, as indeed it was to all who had known
him for the late Mr. Armson had
never known lllhealth and always reflected activity and alertness. All
spring, however, he had taken great
interest in the development of a wonderfully, attractive lawn and garden
adjoining his home in which he took
great pride and spent much effort. It
is thought perhaps his overzealous
efforts in the garden during the extreme heat'and with'the added excitement of the homecoming of his
daughter, ..who is a nurse in St. Paul's
hospital, Vancouver, were too great
for him.
George Talbot Armson was born
in Leice/sfer, England, 52 years ago
and came to Canada in 1900, residing for some years at Port Arthur,
Ontario. In 1909 he moved with his
-family to Grand Forks and has since
conducted a shoe repairing establishment here and was recognized as a
skilled workman. He was -a great
reader ancl followed closely the affairs
of slate, "taking also a lively interest
in municipal matters and always
evinced loyalty to tha town and valley.' George Armson will be greati>
missed at his accustomed post, and
deepest sympathy from a wide circlo
of friends will go out to his widow
and family in their-hour of .bereavement. Besides his widow he is survived by two sons���Cecil residing at'
Grand Forks, Harry located at the'
coast and Gladys, a nurse at St,
Paul's Hospital, Vancouver.
.The funeral will take place from
Holy" Trinity Church,, on Sunday afternoon at 2.30 'to Evergreen cemetery.

only inleri'sung bill appropriate to note the. truly amazing
progress made by We.slern Canada in a space of time so bvief asl.o be'considered but a passing moment iu the. life of a. nation. When the West was
Iirst opened to .��eiUeiiient villi the advent of- the O.P.K., predictions.were made
that a great fulure awaited It, and these were renewed when twenty-one years
ago the Old North West Territories passed and��� l.he'Proviuces of Saskatchewan
and Alberia came into being. Hut even the most optimistic could hardly
foresee sueh growth as has actiially been recorded,
Twenty-ono years ago Manitoba had a population ol" about 800,000,'and in
���creating lho two new Provinces-they were each-credited with au estimated
population of 250,000. As a matter "of fact the census thc following, year disclosed a much smaller figure. Compared with less than 700,000 population'in
the three prairie provinces in .1905,-it'is confidently predicted that this year's
���census will show a. population of approximately two and one-half millions.:.
According to a recent'estimate,.by. the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, the
gross agricultural wealth of Canada * in-.1925 was ?7,832.9-12,000, almost one-bait
���of which was credited to Manitoba, Saskatchewan and. Alberta. Although the.
youngest of all Lhe provinces Saskatchewan occupies second place in gross agricultural wealth, being exceeded by Ontario only,while Alberta and Mauitoba
���occupy fourth and fifth places respectively. The gross agricultural, wealth ol
.Saskatchewan last year ������is' placed at: $1,826,833,000, -Alberta at $1,092,187,000,
���and Manitoba at $69G,'195,000. These are remarkable figures for such a young
country, still in-the Initial "stage of its development. ',. -
In annual agricultural revenue the 'strong posilion held by Western Canada is even more strikingly indicated. In land values and value of farm
buildings the older and more populous" provinces of Ontario and Quebec natur-
.ally outrank Lhe West, but in the annual value of agricultural production :tho
Western Provinces take a high place. The total agricultural revenue of Can-;
.-ada in 3925 Is placed at ?:i,708,507,000. of -which the three prairie provinces
���produced $803,730,000, Saskatchewan being credited with $���! 1(5,022,000, or only.
361,000,000 less thanVOnlario; Alberta ...with ?24o,l��f>��,000- ''and Manitoba
-��n-l2;0'16,000.        ��� "',;���.
In field crops, Saskatchewan comes .first- with'. Ontario, second, Alberta
-third and Manitoba fourth. Ontario and. Quebec lead in farm animals with
Alberta third. In, poultry and eggs Ontario and Quebec also lead, with- Saskatchewan third. Alberta is fourth in ..the. production-: of wool, y^hlloTVlani-.
toba occupies third place in the production ot...honey.

Considering lhe fact, that the ne-sv twin provinces of the West were not
quite nine years old when tlie Great "War broke, and*, the-unsettled-arid diflicult
years which liave since'intervened.-the progress of the West must be regarded a.s 'altogether remarkable.' It speaks ���volume's for the capacity of tin*/coun-

Explored Land Of Head Huntefs
Scientist^, Secured     Film      Showing
Process of Head Curing
��� Dr. Ilert ~s. .Dickey, well-known
scientist, and his bride ' of a
lew months,- tho former Elizabeth
Parker, havo just finished -an exploration trip lhat carried thorn through the
land of the head hunters and the most
remote parts of South America.   ���
Dr. and Mrs. Dickey, with a staff of
film experts, have reached Para,
Brazil,, completing -a trip that began-
lastJN'ovembcr and carried them across
lhe Andes Mountains on muleback.
They obtained a full motion picture
���record of the process of reducing and
curing-human heads as practiced by
the Jiveros of Eastern JSucador. The
Indians had just returned from'one or
their head hunting expedition's! which
was found to be in-retaliation for the
kidnapping of their women'by another
tribe.
The party, which left Guayaquil,
Eucador, last November, crossed the
Andes on mulebaclc, encountering perpetual snow at an altitude of 11,000
feet within two degrees of the equator.
They descended the eastern .slope of
the Andes into the dense jungle .of
Eucador and then entered the country
of ��� thc Jiveros. Thence' they treked
300 miles overland through the jungle'to the head waters of-the Napo
River. Embarking iu canoes the explorers paddled down the Napo to the
Amazon Kivor.'.whence they proceeded to Iauitos, Peru. A 2,000-inile
paddle still awaited them in order1 to
roach Para.
Dr. Dickey, while in the land of the
head, hunters, s'aved the life of an Indian bitten by a venomous suako, and
as a reward was presented with- a
head cured while the explorers were
in the territory. Head hunting, the
explorers learned, is invariably in re-,
taliation for the- kidnapping of women
by other tribes and causes all the wars
In that district.
The skin of "the victim's head is re-
movech entirely antl treated for ten
days-wilh-canbar]tranfl"]ior~sanil7_Tlie"
cured head measures about six inches
in diameter, The features tire well
preserved,, and the lips sewn to prevent the escape of evil spirits. The
head hunters,are not interested in the
heads of white mon.
Dr.' Dickey, .who is a fellow qf the
Boyal Geographic Society, has spent
22 years in tropical South Aiuciica antl
is well known as a geographer and. explorer. _ -

TONY   DETERMINED
TO   BE   IN   PICTURE
Tony Mix, famous eowpony, cannot
understand why he is not always in
the scenes with Tom. If left, unhitched near a set in which .Mr: Mix
appears, Tony seems to feel that he
has been left out by accident and
promptly marches in, determined, apparently, to get in the scene whether
wanted or not. ������';���
In a recent picture Mr".'-Mix rode
another horse. At the time he was
-supposed to be a prisoner in the hands
of desperate bandits.1 Tony, tied io
a tree at one side, failed to understand -why Mix was not using him but
was riding another horse. When the
director decided to retake the scene,
finding himself again left out of the
picture,. Tony jerked his halter
strap, broke it and dashed happily
into the group of riders.

Tom Mix and Tony, is at the Greenwood Theatre, Saturday, July ,10th.

talked and sang and made plans for
