The president stated that efforts had
been made to.open the Hospital again.
Dr. Kingston had been approached to
see if some co-operation with Grand
Forks could not be arranged to this
end. Dr. Kingston had promised to
. consult his partner, Dr. Traux, and
would communicate his decision on the
matter.
G. S. Walters said the Hospital situa-
- tion was in exactly the same position as
it was six months ago. He suggested
that the Hospital be handed to the care
of say three men as trustees till such
time as the Hospital could open again.
. - T. W. Clarke of Beaverdell, said this
proceedure no doubt would be alright
but there was no provision in the rules
of the Society for such a measure. He
thought if the present directors were
definite proposition would be forthcoming.
S. B. Hamilton, after some further
discussion, moved that the meeting of
the Hospital Society be adjourned till
such time as conditions improve or at
-the discretion of the directors or at a
request of 20 members of'the Society,
that another meeting be called' and
that the present directors remain in
office until such time. This motion was
endorsed.
Geo. S. Walters referred to the secretary-treasurer's resignation, which
had been handed to the 'directors at
their previous monthly meeting. He
remarked.that he was pleased that the

president stated that he was pleased to

31 members;, present, "coming from as"
far as Beaverdell on, the West and
Greenwood on the East.''
President G. S. Walters was in the"
chair and after the minutes of the last
annual meeting and special July meeting were read and.approved, the financial statement, was read, which showed
a balance of $42.95.   This met with the
hearty approval  of the members as
much applause was given at that time.
,   The president announced that election of officers were'now in order.   C.
King was unanimously, chosen as Hon.-
President. -It was the general feeling
Jof all present that Mr. Walters should
carry on as president as he was most
fitted for, the office, being, always, in
touch with game'-matters in., this* section and was a prominent sportsman
Mr. Walters declined the honor saying
he .was of the opinion that there should
be a change also that'it was time^that
the vice-president step" up.'However,
as the,members were unanimous he-rer
considered his..decision* and agreed to
stay .in office and'a former motion by
T. N. Walker that the, balance of the
officers be elected en bloc was endorsed.
.As Mr. King automatically becomes. a

member was needed and'A". J. Morrison
was chosen for'the position.   Con. W.

wild animal life'pictures proposed*by

,   Pheasants were received f/om Victoria
a Tfew weeks .""ago and'were distributed
at various .points, in'the district, 'it is
the general opinion-that the birds received last year have wintered fairly
well, although.it was a severe winter.- .
- Fishing in Jewel Lake was a very
popular topic. .It was thought that "a
limit should be put on the catch there
and not keep.it at 25 as at present.
Some  fishermen  commercialize  their
catch and if does not seem fair when
this   association   is   responsible"  for
,having---this-lake-stocked,-and-then-lo
have it depleted by fishermen who will
get    sufficient fish to salt 'down for
winter use.
A. vote of thanks was passed to the
Floyd Bros, and Geo."While for their
good work in looking after the outlet
'of the lake since the fish were first
placed, there.
Funds 'were needed Jn work that is
contemplated to make spawning ground
at this lake and it was left .with the
president to draft up a notice and have
same placed at the lake, asking'fishermen to contribute.    >   .
The question of the licence charge
for non-resident fishermen came up
and after a. vote was taken it showed
that the "majority of the members were
in favor of' $25 for" the season, as
against the present licence of $1 per
day or $10 for the season.
'Fishing season opens in the lakes on
May 1st and in the streams* oh June 1st.
The annual request for a permanent
game warden was endorsed.1' *
The following decisions were carried
by a vote: That the Club recommend
the shooting of .one buck ;and one doe,
the season to be-Oct. 1st to Nov. 30th;
blue grouse season to be from Sept. 1st
to Sept. 15th; willow grouse to be open
this year, the dates to be from Sept.
1st to Sept. 30th;. that a bounty be
placed on goshawks and horned owls
at $2.00.- -
The annual dinner was set for Friday,
Sept. 20th. *   - y    '
A vote of thanks was tendered to
President Walters and Secretary Gane
for the able manner in which they carried out the affairs of the.Club during the past year. This met with hearty
applause. *-*-������- -      -
The president took great pleasure in
moving a hearty vote of thanks to Con.
W. R. Powers for the efficient way in
which he carried out his duties; also
that-a letter be written to that effect
to the department - in Victoria. The
motion was unanimously carried.
A Bi'yan Williams of-Vancouver, internationally-known game authority,
will be offered complete charge of game
administration in* British Columbia, as
commissoner under the ne'w Game Act,
it was learned in .Victoria, last week.
It is understood that Mr. Williams is
prepared to accept this important post,
but final arrangements have to he completed." A formal appointment, it is
expected,,will he made in a few days.
In "offering the 'position to ,Mr.
Williams the' government believes it
will be placing game problems in safe
hands. Mr. Williams has been associated with game in this province for
many years, and is well known to big
game hunters all over the" world. He
has supervised some of the 'largest
game expeditions ever undertaken here.
A practical woodsman, he is an. accepted' authority on wild1. life. His
books on game, chief among them
"Game Trails of British Columbia," are
standard reference works on "the subject.
As game commissioner Mr. Williams
will have complete charge of all game
administration, subject only to the government. - He will enforce game - laws
apart entirely from the provincial police,
-who have done this, work in the past,
and thus will devote his entire time to
game matters. -'    ��� ...--'
', Mr. Williams' first task, if he accepts
the post, as he is expected'to do.immediately, _will be to create an entirely new
game administration department of the
government. He will have under him a
force of game wardens chosen for their
knowledge of wild life and woodcraft,
and his recommendations ��� in the appointment of the officials.undoubtedly
will guide the government.
���By appointing Mr. Williams now, the
government plans to get the new game'
force into active operations well in. advance  of  the  next * shooting   season.
Mr. Williams and his wardens will work
under  Attorney-General  Pooley,  who
drafted the new game legislation.. At
present, the superintendent of provincial   police,  Col.  J.  H-.A McMullin,  is
chief warden, but Mr., Pooley believes
game enforcemnet should be a function
^of ;itsJ:own,.apart.from "police" .work.,,.'....
With'the appoiritriient"of .the game
commissioner and his staff, the-game
conservation board will go out of ex-,
istence.   In the past it has acted in an
advisory'capacity in all game matters,
but_ will now be unnecessary under .the
new "system, the 'government believes.
Socially  and  financially  the   100%
Dance of Friday evening the 19th was
a success.   The Masonic Hall was a
colorful occasion, festooned with multicolored   serpentine   interspersed   with
bunches   of   balloons   and   dimly-lit
Japanese    lanterns.   Greenwood    ancl
district were well represented and by
ten o'clock the floor was well filled with
happy dancing couples.   Shortly before
supper, novelty hats were distributed

hundred sat down to a chicken supper
appentizingly arranged by the ladies

Editor. The Greenwood Ledge,
Dear Sir,
Will you permit me,.on behalf of the
pupils of the Greenwood School, to express my greatest appreciation towards
Principal James Reid for the attitude
he has taken, to promote the welfare of
the pupils.
Firstly he has taught them the principles of good sportsmanship and
furthermore has encouraged it by
awarding a prize to the pupil considered to be the best sport of the term.
Secondly he takes great interest in ,the
school games such- as football, basketball, baseball, etc. The pupils (boys)
do not consider it a game unless Mr.
Reid takes part in it. Thirdly the
school was in need of athletic equip- -
ment and Mr. Reid devised means by
which to obtain these. The dance on
Friday last was given for this purpose.-
It proved to be even of greater success
than estimated and for this I am well
pleased for it took a great deal of work
to sponsor such a dance especially on
the part of Mr. Reid.
Last but riot least let me thank all
those Who attended or assisted the
dance in any other way. ���

PARENTS' MISTAKES
"Parents talk too much about illness.
They do this not only at tea parties
and sewing circles but also before their
children and to parents whose children
arc already ill.
That unpleasant or alarming talk
about illness should not go on before
children is evident. Sickness in itself
is so unpleasant to a child that it need
not be" emphasized by talk. Do not
threaten a child with illness because of
some minor indescretioh unless you expect him to be fearful of it. There is
. no reason7why_illness^should7strike,fear
ground contamination, so that it is all-
important that the chicks, each spring
should be reared on clean ground.
If broody hens are used as a hatching or rearing medium, it is only
natural to suppose that they will pass
on to their chicks any intestinal para-
1 sites or disease with which they may be
infested or infected.
By breeding out broodiness from a
flock the incentive to use incubators
and brooders is increased, thereby safeguarding the flock to some extent.
It is quite possible to breed out broodiness by keeping a record of the number
of times the pullets in a flock go
broody in a year, and then culling
those birds which have been broody,
say, more than twice. Of course, if a
male is purchased, it should be from
low-broody stock;
Broodiness has been decreased considerably on the Dominion Experimental Station, Summerland, B.C. over a
period of years by these breeding
methods.
If we admit into the category of
"minimum broodiness" pullets which
have not been broody more than.twice
during their first laying year, we find
that 36 per cent bf the pullets recorded
broodiness more than twice in 1922-23,
but by 1927-28 this had been .-gradually
reduced to 12 per cent.
Production on the poultry' plant had
correspondingly increased'until in the
latter year the pullets averaged 230.4
eggs per bird without' culling.
Taken over the period of years, 1922
to 1928, the pullets showing broody
tendencies twice or less gave far higher
egg production than those going broody
more than twice. In fact, it is doubtful
whether the latter, as a group, paid for
their board.        '  "

"SHANGHAIED"
into the heart of a child unless he has
learned that fear from others.
-Aimless talk about illness has little
j ustiflcation.; In; the first place, the
subject is unpleasant excect to the person retailing his past woes arid tribulations. Moreover, excessive indulgence
in this form of gossip seems a sign of
an unhealthy mental state. There are
too many other interesting, * constructive topics in these days of rapid evolution. Why waste time with the enumeration"of sicknessesAt ~:y-yy. -yy
When a friend's child is taken with
an illness, do not rush to the phone
and recite all the terrible things the
particular disease has been known to
do. Don't tell the young mother all
the harrowing details of:. the. illness of
babies. That such talk may forearm
a person is its only justification, but it
is too often applied when there is no
need. Usually it is not kind or sensible and does more harm than good.
Can't Buy Health For Children
Physical and mental health cannot
be bought. It is necessary that parents
shoulder the responsibility, of their
children's welfare because they are the
only ones in constant and permanent
contact with the children. All others
see them temporarily, cannot be in
touch with their wholejaackground, and
therefore must lack in' perspective,
Parents should not relegate too much
of the detail of children's care to hired
help, professional or otherwise.
Oversolicitude About Physical Defects
This last thought has reminded me
of a peculiar sort of attitude met with
in some parents. These do not seem to
feel happy about their job unless they
are fixing some defect in their children:
It is like a man with an old style Ford
ear. He is always happily driving off
after a repair job. Such people, often
bring their children for examination.
If nothing in the routine examination is found wrong they0 are likely
to ��� say, 'But you didn't take .a blood
count. She may be anemic,': or it may
be, 'Don't you think we ought to x-ray
her chest?' :    '"
In these queries I seem to detect a
slight  tinge  qf  disappointment that
there is nothing to fix.   This is but
another form of oversolicitude.   Take
your blessings at their face value, cash     "And .what did you learn this.morn
in on them, and enjoy children while ing?" asked a fond parent of a little
they are yet young.  In this'I am not girl who had attended Sunday school

Devotees of the sea and sailing ships
are to have an opportunity to see their
fill of romance and adventure along the
most colorful waterfront in the country,
San Francisco's Barbary Coast, with
the showing of "Shanghaied", Ralph
Ince's great maritime picture, at the
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, April
27th.  .
Ince has made the attempt in his
picture to bring out the picturesque in
the battered joints of the Barbary
Coast, where sailors and cut-throats of
every nationality and race are.thrown
into' a seething mass of dissipating humanity.
Ince himself, who acts both star and
director, portrays the character of a
sturdy sea captain who loves a dancer
in one of San Francisco's bay-front
dives.Pasty Ruth Miller, plays the girl.
Many shots taken aboard ship far
out in the Pacific ocean, where sky
meets, water on all sides, add much to
the,beauty of the picture.. A famous
trading schooner, especially refitted for
Ince's work, was used in all the maritime scenes/Included in trie cast of
noted screen players are such familiar
names as.Gertrude Astor, Tom Santschi, Alan Brooks and others.

GROWING GREEN DUCKS
'"    ' -(Experimental Farms Note)
Growing green "ducks is an occupation which -returns handsome  profits
M S JKy invfited" ExPerimental
woik at the Central Experimental Farm
Ottawa, shows that Pekin  ducklings
^jwer-^ged_six_pounds_each.in-ten-weeks=
, and nlade a net profit, over cost of feed
SA^^n0^*1',38 eaCh"    The"2!
onf hf,fhe ?ek!n,bl'eed made at least
one-half pound heavier gains than
ducklings of other breeds-   *
���0��Ckiin{?s ini?ndec- 'or marketing as
green ducks, should be of the-pekin
breed because of their early developing
qualities, and they must be forced by
special methods of feeding.
Frequent feeding promotes rapid
grow h. Young ducklings should be
xed six times daily from the start until
they are two to three weeks old, and
- five tunes daily until they are ready for
market.  --_. ���    r
aVT*5,e f��ed u?ed for growinS ducklings
at-the Experimental Farm, Ottawa, is
S1 P,^tSu0f bran- shorts and corn-
K���W "? $S!.b ten percenfc beef >��eal
��� �� -^tle chai,c��al (about one
pei cent) is also. recommended. This
mash should be moistened with water
but not made sticky or sloppy.  Add
SJ s"fflcl^nt watel" to make the nVeal
stick together. Sprinkle coarse sand
over the mash before feeding The
sand serves as grit and aids in the process of digestion.  Feed only what the
ducklings will ."eat up clean at each
feeding.
After the ducklings are four or five
days old some green food should be
given .such as clover or alfalfa which
has been freshly cut, and chopped up
fine. Start with only a small amount
of this material and gradually, increase
it untilJ*he_mash:-.contains- about --one
fifth green "food.
When the ducklings are about six
weeks old the green food should be gradually eliminated and at the commencement of the seventh week the mash
should be changed to one possessing
more fattening properties. The fattening mash used at Ottawa is 50
pounds cornmeal, 35 pounds shorts, and
15 pounds beef meal, with a sprinkling
of coarse sand. N
* By the time the- ducklings are ten
weeks' old they "should be in excellent
flesh and have developed their first
coat of body feathers. This is the right
time to market them. If they are kept
longer they will change their feathers,
and the-rate of growth will, decrease,
thus increasing cost and reducing profit.
