DEATH OF D. J. McDONALD .
C
The news of the death of Daniel
James McDonald in the Sacred Heart
Hospital, Spokane, at 1:30 p.m. on July
'   31st, was received with regret by all
his friends in this city* and ��� district.
Mr, McDonald went to Spokane to consult a specialist and had been- in the
Hospital 13 days.   His health had been
failing since he first became ill three
years ago.
>   Mr. McDonald was born in Peak's
Station, P.E.I. in 1861. During the early
part of his life he followed the' carpenter tradg and sawmill, business in
the East.  For nine years he lived in
the State of Maine and 30 years ago
came West- to ,Grand -Forks.   In 1908
he.moved to__Greenwood and bought his
present ranch on the No. 7^Road.  He
made a success of farming and all who
have had .the pleasure of visiting his
farm have admired the beautiful and
substantial residence he had erected
thereon.
Mr. McDonald was married to Miss
Victoria St. Thomas of Fredericton,
N.B., in Grand Forks in 1899.
Mr. McDonald always took a keen
interest in the welfare "of the district.
He had been a member of the farmers
organizations of Midway and had always been a great help to its members.
In his passing the agricultural industry
has lost a good member and the district
':'���' an excellent citizen.
He is survived by his widow and two
children, Sylvester and Elizabeth, living at home; also one brother and one
sister in P.E.I.; three sisters in Boston
and another sister in Newport, R.I.;
a brother John A., resides iri Grand

Robert F. Forshaw of Greenwood
Superior School won the governor-
general's medal for this district (No. 8)
in the high school entrance examinations, according to results'issued by the
department of education in Victoria on
Friday, July 27.
Robert Forshaw has. received his entire education in-Greenwood and besides being a clever scholar.has been a
very regular attender. In his seven
years at- school he has missed only
Vz day during that time and this was
two months after he entered the receiving class. It is a better record than
that of a Creston boy who has not
missed school in five years. Robert
was born in Phoenix in September,
1914. He is receiving congratulatiorfs
from his many friends on his splendid
showing. -

MACLEAN TO HOLD,
OFFICE TILL AUGUST 20
Victoria, July 26.���;Th'e MacLean government will not resign'until August 20
or 21, it was announced today, after
legal experts of the attorney-general's
department ,had advised the cabinet
that it must remain iri office until after
all votes cast in the recent provincial
election are counted./-With the count
commencing on August 9, the final declaration of the election, results will not
be ready, to announce'until eleven or
twelve days later, it ;.was stated. For
that reason the government, which is
anxious to make way for the new Conservative ministry, must remain for
nearly a month'yet.   :r:
The opinion of'its legal advisors on
the date of tlie government's resignation was'announced by Premier Mac-
Lean at- noon after a' meeting of the
cabinet." In a statement given .out
then; the Premier said;' x
., "On the receipt of 'the early results'
of the recent election'. I expressed the
desire to relinquish office as soon as the
change" could be reasonable effected.
On the return of the 'attorney-general
to the city the legal aspects of the matter were' investigated,', with the result
that it seems certain '.formalities must
be complied with which will delay the
resignation of the government beyond
th.e time that I had originally decided
upon. ���-'
The election will, riot be complete
until August 21, and tinder the Constitution Act the. new government may
not be formed until the completion of
the election without 'disqualifying the
members of the" government from election. If members of "the new government were sworn in.prior to the completion of the election, the returning
officers in the constituencies of each of
them would 'have. no "'alternative under
the Constitution Act] but to declare
their opponents elected. The official
count will be in nearly all ridings on
-August 9. ���   I'
With the exception.; of Victoria and
Vancouver, the official count should
not take more-than a/day. After that
the returning officer^ must hold the
election papers for a period of ten days
and then return the:writ of election
with his" certificate eiiubrsed thereon to
the provincial secretary. The election
will be entirely -completed, therefore,"

about that date.
In 1916 the election was held on

his 'resignation to _ the Lieutenant-
Governor until November 29, some two
and a half months after the date of the
election.
Victoria.���Open   seasons   for. game
birds all over-- British  Columbia this
year were announced at the Parliament
Buildings on April 30th.  The biggest
change^ from. the regulations of last
year is "the complete closing of willow grouse to shooting all over the
province in order to protect this fine
game bird from entire extinction.  The
game conservation board is planning
to   keep   this  prohibition   on   willow
grouse shooting in effect for a period
of several years in an effort to restore
the species.  It may be necessary also
to close blue grouse'entirely to shooting next year, officials of the board
stated, and it is hoped sportsmen will
agree in urging this step.   Blue grouse
are, in better condition than willows
but' have been much depleted of- late
years. ���
For game purposes the province is
divided again this year into-two districts, the western district including all
territory west of the summit of the
Cascade Mountains and south of "the
electoral district of Atlin, and the eastern district covering the remaining
area. Certain specified areas of Skeena
and Lillooet, however, are placed in the
eastern district for migratory ' bird
regulations.
The regulations issued _on Monday
include the big game seasons announced before, and-the'seasons, on
fur-bearing animals and game birds.
In the eastern' district all fur-bearing
animals will be. open from November 1,
1928, to February 28, 1929.
Ducks ' (except' wood and eider
ducks), wilson snipe, coots, geese and
brant from September 15 to December

shot before 7 a.m. on September 15.
For band tailed pigeons from September 15 to September 30, no live
decoys may be used. Blue grouse only
may be shot in Grand Forks-Greenwood and part of Similkameen from'
September"l5 to "October 15; "blue "and

HARVESTING FLOWER SEED
(Experimental Farms Note) ��� -
By saving some of'the home grown
seed the keeping pf a flower- garden
may be made considerably more interesting. Many of our best -annuals,
biennials and perennials seed freely
and' by saving some of the seed
future plantings can be made more
economically. There is always, too, a
more personal interest in plants which
have been produced entirely through
the growers own efforts.
Where pure strains are wanted more
care must be taken to prevent cross
fertilization by insects and wind.
Where strains become crossed, however,
there is "an added possibility of obtaining something different in the flower
world which will well reward the grower
for any trouble he may have taken.
When the flower fancier undertakes
to grow his own seed it is advisable to
start with the best strain possible.
Some care should also be exercised in
'choosing., and marking the most desirable plants in bloom. These. are the
ones which will most likely give the
best offspring. Seed is the best stored
in a dry, cool room and away.from all
possible attacks of mice. When harvesting seed.be sure to mark the date
and variety on the package as identity
is easily lost. Allowing the plants to
will ordinarily shorten the period of
bloom. It is .best, therefore, to mark
and save from only a few of the. best
specimens.
For perennials it is advisable to set
aside a small area in th garden for a
trial plot. All of the seed will not produce desirable plants and when in a
a small bed by themselves the poorer
ones can be discarded.
At the Dominion Experimental Farm,
Agassiz, B.C., seed of many kinds of
both flowers and vegetables have been
saved for a considerable number of
years. This home grown seed has, in
the majority of cases, proven to be
earlier and more vigorous than the
small lots purchased in pacakges.
Many of the best strains and varieties
of  fruit- have  been  produced  from

A special meeting of the Greenwood
District Rod and Gun Club was held in
the Old School House, Midway, on Friday evening, July' 27th. President- G.
S. Walters was in the chair and there
were 30 members present.
��� Secretary, Major R. Gray, read the
minutes of the last annual meeting .in
order that the new members would be'
enlightened with the work of, the club.
Correspondence was dealt with and
the open seasons on deer,- ducks and
blue grouse, ��� announced by the "Game
Board, met with approval. No men-,
tion was made of willow grouse and the
secretary was asked to write regarding
same.
The methods of planting fish was, explained and it was the general opinion
that fingerlings were more satisfactory
than fish eggs.
The suggestion of R. E. Norris that
ladies be allowed to join the Club did
not meet with the approval of the
majority of those present.
The president reported that our very

worthy secretary was about to leave
have to be appointed. -After a very
close vote the election of G. B. M. Gane
was unanimously endorsed. Mr. Gane
thanked the members for the honor-
and said he would do all in his power
to help along the good work of the
organization.
It was decided to "hold the annual
dinner in Greenwood on Friday, Sept.
28th and that it would be open to
boni fide members of .the Club.
After the business of the meeting /
was finished the rest of the evening ''
was spent in social diversion. Refreshments were served under the management of G. McMynn, Wm. Walmsley and H. Whiting. On behalf of the
Club members the president spoke of
the work accomplished by Major Gray
in his capacity as secretary since the
inaugeration of the Association five
years ago. A more fitting speech than
that of the president could not be
delivered and the climax of enthusiasm
was" reached when the Major was asked
to accept as a memento and in recognition pf his services a-set of Dunhill-
pipes and tobacco pouch. A fine response-was given by-the* recipient and
his concluding remarks signifying his
intention of returning to the district
again in the course of two or three
years lead a fresh outburst of cheers
for the Gray family. .Several members
' eulogized the work and interest shown
by the secretary and very able speeches
were heard from-some of the fellows
who had previously never been suspected of_posses_sing_such_.speech=mak-_
ing ability. "A feature of the evening
was the pleasant interchange of com.
pliments between two-'of the oldest
members of the Club and after which
an evening long to be remembered
came to a close" with the singing of
Auld Lang Syne and the national
anthem.

of the only game bird of any consequence in this part of the country.
Reports ��from all quarters and which
can be relied upon show the willow
grouse are more numerous than ever
known before. A strong protest is
being forwarded from the Club executive and enquiry made: on what
grounds the Conservation Board reached such a decision. It is to be hoped
that the Grand Forks Club, if in existence, will also .send in a protest if
they have justifiable grounds for so
doing.

SAFEGUARDING THE
FARM WATER SUPPLY
_    (Experimental Farms Note)
That many farm wells are not amply
protected from pollution and are potential sources of danger from water-borne
diseases as typhoid, dysentry. etc., is the
conclusion drawn from the results of
the analyses at: the Central Experimental Farm of water samples from
rural wells. Of 450 samples of water
submitted during the past four years,
bacteriological tests indicated that, but
37 per cent were quite free from pollution.. Thirty-one per cent of the
samples were definitely polluted, while
a like number were of a suspicious
character pointing to possible contamination. ,./���. si .
' In the majority of cases contaminated water comes from the ordinary
shallow well with its much greater possibility for admitting germs of" ex-

THE SCHOOLMASTER ON WHEELS
In this day of dazzling amalgamation,
there is at least one merger, taking
place in Canada which warrants public
approval. The uniting of public opinion behind the cause of forest protection has become the chief objective
of all concerned with the safety of the
forest resources. More and more, the
rangers and inspectors who daily face
^the^ni-e^problem^in^the^w.oods^hav.a
come to the conclusions that no
amount of mechanical equipment, aeroplanes, pumps, towers and so forth will'
.overcome an unfriendly public. Ninety
one per cent of all forest fires are instigated by a careless human head in
control of a careless pair of hands.
The secret of true forest conservation'
therefore is to make every woods dweller and traveller his own "policeman"
depending upon his own intelligence
and alertness to prevent forest conflagrations from ever starting. This assumes a very radical change in present
public knowledge and sympathy." and is
the explanation of the new impetus
given to the Canadian:Forestry Association in its nation-wide ; endeavour
to enlist the whole population of Canada as friends of the forest.-  ��� ���
The Association, which is non-government and non-commercial, depends largely upon the power of localized meetings, lectures and motion
pictures. In Ontario for exemple, two
English-speaking and one French-
speaking lecturers perform- an "educational- patrol": of the country from
Ottawa to the Manitoba boundary,
travelling separately by motor truck
.with their electric plants and picture
machines and presenting the graphic
human story of the forests in hundreds
of the remote communities, where fires
��� usually have .their origin.'
In Quebec, four field parties/scattered from Temiskaming to Gaspe, take
a new community each day, with attendance averaging four or five hundred
for each lecturer. New Brunswick and
Nova Scotia, the prairies and British
Columbia are similarly handled, so'that
hundreds of thousands,of the folk in
the,back settlements are being daily
instructed and inspired to play their
part in guarding 'the timber from
.which living is derived, and on which
,500 million dollars of Canada's yearly
income depends.
The "Schoolmaster on wheels": as
these Forestry Association caravans
are sometimes called, are truly creating
a merger of public knowledge and cori-
viction that__will eventually put the forest ... fire plague out of.-business.
The testimony of the forest rangers,
who are the men "on the firing line"
is that public education is proving
itself far more effective in fire
suppression than any method previously employed. It is a compliment
to Canadian common sense that the
rangers have come to' this conclusion,
is very frequently at fault, and ari examination of the data furnished with
the samples shows a very distinct relationship between the quality of the
water and the distance from such
sources of pollution as privy, cesspool,
barnyard, etc.       .:
Fifty yards may be considered the
minimum, safe distance from any
source of pollution, indeed experiments
have shown that it is -posible for bacteria from poluted soures to enter the
water of a well 200 feet or more away
when the well is in the direction of.the
ground water flow.'
If the well is^situated at a safe distance, it is next in importance to have
it so constructed that any ground water
must pass through soil and thus be

15 feet, are tight and impervious to
water. The top, naturally, should be
so constructed that no contamination
can, enter.
In emergency, water from contaminated or suspicious wells can be rendered safe by bqiling and also by
chlorinating with chloride of lime, but
at best this is only a temporary makeshift and does not get at the root of
the trouble.: The remedy is to construct a safe-well and bear three points
in mind:(l) that a deep well Ms best,
(2) that a safe distance from contamination is essential a��d (3) that' the
construction is right.

TOURIST TRADE
AND FOREST FIRES
The tourist trade, of Canada at present is .estimated to be worth upwards
of fifty million dollars a year. The
railways handle so many inquiries from
United States tourists planning outing
trips to Canada that the chief difficulty at the present time is to provide proper hunting ahd fishing camps in Canada to accomodate the influx of
Americans. It is well, to note that the
"tourist income" of Canada is very
largely; a, "forest income." The , lure
of Canada is indentified in the American mind chiefly with splendid opportunities for outdoor sport such as fishing and camping, and thousands of our
neighbors'await only the extension of
camp and guide facilities in certain
districts of Canada.
Those ���'; identified with railways and
tourist business realize that the chief
foe of a vast tourist traffic to Canada is
the forest fire. . Many of the most
beautiful and well-stocked woodlands
have been horribly devastated by fires
set by reckless-campers and smokers.
Last year'ho fewer than 5,400 such fires
were started by human-agencies and it
is safe to say that in hundreds of the
burned areas the possibility of tourist
traffic is eliminated for fifty years to
come., 'XXX'xi.i  ; ��� '���''���
Any woodsman knows the fish and
game are destroyed or driven out by
forest fires. Stream and lake conditions, the stores of food and the cover,
are fatally altered when fires pass
through.
; Forest fire pretention, therefore, is
of vital importance to the perpetuation
ior"��itis inconceivable how any; army of the tourist trade. '�����     ���.-._���_;

%TSf ith a view to further promoting the best use of
V: seeds and (Obtaining first-class results^in addition to educating the. farmers as to how to overcome
seed grain anaV forage crop difficulties, the Canadian
Pacific Railway has again placed a touring demonstration train on . their. lines, which visits allLi important farming centres in the West, Prairie Provinces
and part of the East.
-This train-went into .service at the latter end of
last month, the opening.being attended by a representative gathering of government; officials and members of the Saskatchewan " Wheat Producers. The
value of such a train was stressed by the Hon. C. M.
Hamilton,. Saskatchewan Minister of Agriculture, who
urged the farmers to make the best possible use of
this splendid advantage offered by the railway. In
addition to the lecture car, the train consists, of two
baggage cars carrying a number of seed cleaning
machines and others to be used in demonstrating
seed and smut treatment. Dairying will also be featured throughout the tour, lectures ia this connec
tion being given by R. B.- Vogne, government dairy
promoter.*-        ��� .-.'������
'-'' In the towns already visited, the train has .been
greeted, with enthusiasm with the farmers displaying
an eagerness .which speaks highly, of thc reputation
of the seed and forage crop demonstration train. It
is operated in conjunction with the University and
extension service of the Saskatchewan provincial,
government/with all-cars, having been equipped at
the Western Shops of the Canadian Pacific Railway
at Winnipeg. Several of the cars are provided with
motor-driven grain cleaning-, machinery of various
types, while other cars are fitted with motion picture
accessories for - the showing of various phases of
grain activities, with still others for the purpose of
exhibiting grain.and grasses. -
The entire train is opened for inspection at the
various stops, demonstrators being on board to explain the entire exhibit and to give advice on important points in seed selection. THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1928.

npiie ;��� recent. installation   of   Mack   Tractors   and
' Lapeer Trailers by the Dominion Transport Company  Limited, - for. the transfer of l.c.l. freight between the Canadian Pacific Place Viger freight sheds
and tlicir outlying terminals in this city, was de:
��� mpnstrated before E. W. Beatty, Chairman and President, ancl other executives of the railway outside the
Windsor Street Station.
Mr. Beatty was specially interested in the mechanism by :vvhioh the trailer is connected up with
the tractor. -This is done by the simple operation
of tracking the tractor slowly into the trailer. Un-
co'upldng is actuated from the tractor by the simple
moving of a ��� lever. The President had theee opera-
. tions performed several times and expressed* his appreciation of their simplicity.
- Coupling and uncoupling of the trailer is operated
by means of .a mechanism known as a fifth wheel
which is bolted to the tractor frame and upon which
the front end of the trailer rides, (interlocks itself
.mechanically with the trailer through the-use of railroad type double locking jaw couplers. Brakes of
both the tractor and trailer are applied individually
and' separately by the driver and are at- all times
under his control. Were it possible for a trailer to
become disconnected from a tractor at any time when
in motion, the brakes of the former are automatically
applied bringing it almost immediately to a stop.
" Through the use of a "Dolly" which consists of a
fifth wheel mounted on a pair of road wheels, two
or more attendant trailers may be attached to one
" tractor thereby forming & tractor train and by so
doing much, increasing the total load, capacity. With
the addition of the extra trailer wheels the total
weigiht of the vehicle and load is divided over a
greater, roaa' surface tire area,- thus overcoming the
' deteriorating effect of heaYiJ" loaded trucks on the
highways and city streets.   *���' .,
The capacity of the trailers used i3 10,000 to
15,000 pounds with an inside dimension of approximately 16 feet long,. GVs feet wide and 7 feet highr
The tractor is of. the internationally" known "Bull
Dog" type and its draw-bar pull is far in excess of
-anything that will be required of it, but was deemed
advisable to use in view of the heavy road condition's
prevailing in Montreal during the winter months.
While tlie tractor is of standard Mack ��� design,
only the chassis is so in the case of the trailer, the
bodv being built and finished-in the Transport com
pany's   plant   in   Montreal.   The   body   is   of' oak
throughout with a sheet metal covering, and the whole '
equipment ie-highly-finished in dark blue, with red '
wheels  and   undergear,-the standard  colors - of  the;
company, making a very handsome appearance.   The
centre' side panels or sliding doors of the trailer .as
well as the rear doors and front panel are decorated .
with  the  Maple  Leaf  and  Beaver,  insignia  of the .
Canadian Pacific Railway.   The doors of the tractor
bear the same crest.   The Dominion Transport Company have at present nine trailers in operation and ���
will increase this number to twelve in the next few
wee!<6. -   Similar  automotive   equipment    has   been'
ordered for use in'Toronto by the'company.
Mack Tractors and Lapeer trailers represent the
latest and most.efficient method of handling freight.
It consists of spotting-one or more trailers at strategic points where freight is to be picked up. When
the trailer is loaded the tractor calls for each in
turn, taking them to their respective destinations -
under-what ie known as the Shuttle System.'. By
this method no time is lost by full trailers waiting
to be moved, as they are operated on an hourly
schedule ��� between each of the outlying freight depots- and the central station, thereby giving the merchants and manufacturers of these outlying districts
the same despatch with" their' freight as those who
are more centrally located.
