Camp Kearney is 14 miles  from
San Diego,  and   the   round   trip
costs 90 cents by anto stage.    The
camp has  three. visiting   days   a
week.    I went oat on one of these
days  with a chaffeur who looked
like Archie Gillis.  He handled his
car with wonderful skill,  just like
Archie,  and could smoke a cigarette, making the whiffs keep time
with the speed   of bis   machine.
When we arrived at an outpost,
the guard took the names of the
passengers,  and asked us who we
were going to visit.    I could have
told him I wanted to Bee Captain
Doc Goodeve of   the A.  M. C;
Big Andy Johnson of the Ski Brigade; Major Jack McKellar  of the
Ebolt Highlanders; General Olson
of  fehe  Ainsworth   Flying   Corps;
Sergeant Jim   Thompson   of   the
Sandon Dry  Battery;  Commander
J. M. Harris of the Mining Corps;
Colonel   Owen   Desmond    of   the
Kaslo Sure Shots; Chief Tom Hanson of the  Tank Brigade;  Bugler
Red  Paddy of the Irish Regiment;
Colonel Tom  Peck of the Y. M.
C. A.; Lieut-Col.   George Benwell
of   the  Commissary   Department;
General Billy Koch of fehe Forestry
Battalion; Father Dan Brandon, or
JiraVWard the noted Indian Scout.
Bat  I knew   that  none of  these
valiant   fighters   were   in   Camp
Kearney,  and,  being like George
Washington, I told the gruff guard
that I was a Pullman car tourist,
and did not know a single or married soul in the camp.    I merely
wanted   to  see how much   bigger
Kearney was than Vernon.    Then
he told the chaffeur that he must
not let me out of the car nntil he
drove me back to San Diego.    Sort
of an auto-cratio prisoner pro tern.
Perhaps that guard was from Missouri,  and took me  for   General
Von Sausage, disguised as a Canadian millionaire,  although I am
sure that my breath did  nofe smell
of   lager,   bologna   or   limburger
A large and beautiful American
princess. (I do not mean klootch)
who safe beside the chaffeur cast
her pitying eyes upon me, and eaicf |
in a sweet sympathetic tone of
voice, "Oh My I If you had only
told me I could have given yon
somebody's name in the camp, and
then you could have gofe by." I
thanked her in grateful language,
remarking fehat heroes never kick
when the grim visage of war caste
a little shadow over their trail.
However, when we got into the
centre of the camp, just opposite
the Y. M. C. A. building, I whispered to the chaffeur that I was a
sky pilot from Three Forks, and
he said I did not have to remain
in the car unless I so desired. So
I got out and wandered through
the military streets nntil I reached
the parade grounds, where I saw
several baseball games in action.
After watching these games for
some time I realized that the Huns
have no chance to win at this kind
of a bail game when the Sammies
get to Europe and hoist "Old
Glory" on war's diamond. Kearney is a dry place. No rain, and
all the booze is kept in a medicine
chest, or your imagination. It is
very difficult to get past tbe guards
wifeh any more boozerine than they
carry in their hats or stomachs.'
The au to-stages leaves the camp
every two minutes, and you have
to stand in line in order ��� to get a
seat. After waiting for 20 minutes I finally got into a front seat
with tbe driver on one side, and a
vaudeville actress pn the other.
Her husband was in the army, and
she had only seen him once in six
weeks. She said that often she
had to smile, sing and dance at
night on the stage when her heart
waa breaking. I told her that I
knew how that waB, because I
had been on the stage myself, and
had wept many a time, owing to the
inability of the ghost to become a
pedestrian. She gently asked me
if I had been in vaudeville. I replied that I had played comedy in
Julius Caesar with Sir Edmund
Ke&u; Poker with the elder Booth
in -New York, and that for two
seasons I bad travelled with End-
dab and   Confucius   playing   the
Death of Mrs. Chas. Oliver
The death occurred in the Sacred
Heart Hospital on Monday afternoon of Beatrice Annie Oliver beloved wife of Chas. Oliver, of this
city.    Mrp. Oliver had been sick
for some time before going to the
hospital.     She  was   a   native   of
Australia,  having been born there
Sept. 9, 1880, and has been a resident of this district for the past 11
years. She leaves to mourn her loss
a husband and three children, the
youngest of  which is only a few
months old.   The deceased  was a
woman of kindly disposition, which
won  for  her a host of friends in
this city, whose sincerest sympathy
goes out to Mr. Oliver and family
on their loss of a loving wife and
mother.     Funeral   services   were
held in the Presbyterian Church on
Wednesday, interment taking place
in the local cemetery.

Golden Rule.    She  never smiled
so I told  1 er  that while   I bad
never   advanced   far   enough   to
break into vaudeville;  bnt fehat I
would probably do so when I found
an  old joke that had  never been
sprung upon the San Diege public.
By  this  time the engine of fehe
car had made it hot in  the front
seat,   and the footlight star asked
me if I could  cool  her feet, by
opening  the door of   the car,  in
order to permit the zephyrs  from
the ocean to blow across her pedal
extremities.      I   did   so  and she
breathed a huge sigh of relief.   Bhe
asked me if the heat of the engine
did not make my feet too warm.
I replied in the negative, stating
that it would take all the heat in
California to   thaw them ont,  as
they had been frozen so often daring the distant past, when I pros-
pected for aces in the hole in British   Columbia.     She   wanted   to
know what an ace in the hole was,
and   I told   her it was-"*' mineral

heads in tbe deck.   Just here the
car stopped on Fourth Street, and
she got ont, wearing a puzzled expression upon her facial auatomj,
and disappeared in the crowd forever.    Thus do tbe stars pass in

a very good imitation of corned beef,
better than stewed, and could bc

Saskatchewan's Plan
For Ujg Production
Provincial      Government      Extends
Work of Agricultural
In the Saskatchewan legislature,
Hon. VV. R. Motherwell, minister of
agriculture, made an announcement j
on behalf of the government of thc
plan which will be fo'.lowed by this
province in the Dominion-wide campaign for greater hog production. In
brief the plan of-the provincial government is to extend the work of
thc agricultural department in the
matter of pure-bred cattle and hogs.
The government intends to buy
young sows off the Winnipeg or
other stock yards and ship them to
central distributing points in Saskatchewan. They will be so?d, bred
or unbred, as desired, to the Saskatchewan farmers at cost, for cash.
Unbred sows will be shipped as ord- _
ers are received, and sows to be bred;
will be kept for four weeks before
being shipped. Boars will bc used
for breeding purposes, and the de-.
partinc.nt will follow as closely as
possible the wishes of the purchasers as to breed of boar to be used.
In thc cities, towns and villages the
plan is to breed a number of s.uvs
jto farrow in May, and kept bv lhe.
'government until their litters can bc
weaned and sold to householders
who apply for them. Urban_ municipalities will be asked lo modify their
by-laws if necessary to permit of
pigs being kept."

The Largest Farmers' Co-operative
Enterprise in the World
���By the amalgamation of the Grain
Growers' Grain company, of Manitoba, and the Alberta Farmers' Co-op-
! erative Elevator company, which was
confirmed at Calgary, Alberta, a few
days ago, Western Canada has probably the largest farmers' co-operative
enterprise in the world. The company which is now known as the
United Grain Growers, Limited, has
more than 35,000 shareholders. Its
assets amount to $6,000,000 and its
total turnover last year was $100,000-
000. It operates 333 grain elevators,
200 flour warehouses, 184 coal sheds,
two terminal elevators, two implement warehouses, and a large timber
mill. It also owns a large timber
tract in British Columbia which will
henceforth supply lumber to the company's shareholders and other farmers in Western Canada. Jn the company's offices, warehouses, elevators
and live stock departments there arc
nearly 1,000 employees. Thc growth
of thc company expressed by the
above figures is extraordinary, representing, as it does, only eleven
years' effort in this field.

Ten Divisions Strong, Well Organized and Impatient to Fight
Ten divisions strong, the Belgian
army is ready to take ils part in tho
offensive in Flanders whenever _ the
word is given. The Belgian minister of war told the Associated Press
that the Belgian army was composed
i of 117,000 men at the beginning of
! the v.^ar, increased by 20,000 volunteers iu August, 1914, and reduced to
60,000 men afler the battle of the
Yscr. Since then, by rile enrollment
of Belgian refugees and the enlistment of volunteers, who havc braved
the live wire barriers'.on the Holland
frontier, it has been brought up to
. t'cii divisions of well trained troops.
! "If our army has not Undertaken
! operations of a wider scope up to
: liiis lime," said thc minister, "it is
because it does not devolve on it to
decide thc moment when, these operations should begin. The army _ is
only a part of the combined allied
force's acting in union and in accordance with, carefully developed
plans. The.army has valiantly filled
lhe roll, more ungrateful than glorious, tlu.t has been assigned to it. It
has just proved by. its bril'iant participation in the last offensive in
Fb.ndcrs that it is ready to attack

Alberta Fanner Has   Big   Turnover
in One Year
As an instance of thc profits that
are being made with cattle in Western Canada, thc .case of a farmer ol
Spring Coulee, 'Alberta, may be cited. This is 'not an -isolated case, and
many ... other farmers can perhaps
show even .better*;results. A year
ago hc purchased at the Calgary
market a herd of cows for which he
paid an average price of $65 a head.
Of these ninety-five have calves and
seventy odd arc dry. The latter were

ing $75 each as thc value of thc rc-
��� i'"ing cows and $40 as the value
of the calves, at which price thc
farmer says hc can readily sell them
at any time, they would realize ' at
least $115 a head. His gross profit
on the investment for the year
would, therefore, amount to 44.'5 per
He says thc cost of handling these
cows during the year did not amount
to more than $6 a head. Interest on
the sum invested on each cow would
amount to about $4.50. The net profit for the year on the investment,
therefore, works out at 28.4 per cent.

Germans Said to Be Using Potatoes
in Making  Munitions
Potatoes arc being used in Germany in thc making of munitions.
The people of Berlin have recently
been asking why they arc only getting a seven pound ration of potatoes every week instead of the promised teti pound supply if the crop
was as large as reported by govern-
men bulletins. An official declaration has now been made that the
potatoes are being used in making
munitions. It has long been known
in Holland that the Germans use
potatoes for this purpose.

Farmer Living Near   Medicine   Hat
to  Pay Penalty  for Crime
After one of the most sensational
as well as one of thc longest criminal trials ever conducted in a Canadian court, Adam Neigel, a fanner
living near Medicine Hat was convicted of the murder of his wife
Clara Neigel by poisoning and he
was sentenced by Mr. Justice Hynd-
man to be hanged on March 22.
The evidence against Neigel was
wholly circumstantial, there beingf no
direct proof that lie had any poison
or that he administered it to his
wife. The circumstances proven in
evidence showed that he must have
given her thc strychnine in a glass
of whiskey which Neigel admitted
giving her. Witnesses who saw her
dip described symptoms that corresponded almost identically with those
of strychnine poisoning. Other witnesses swore that Neigel told them
he had poisoned his wife and the
chemical analysis of the stomach
showed the presence of .'strychnine.
Coupled .with these facts was _the
evidence of witnesses that Neigel
had been having illicit relations with
another woman, who..:'., it happened
Was one of the witnesses who saw
Clara Neigel die. The defence held
that she swore as she did against
Neigel to get revenge on- him for
telling her husband of the relations
tha had existed between them.
The jury did not believe thc story
of conspiracy and found that the
circumstances proved that Neigel
was guilty..

Two Women of France
Brave French Woman Whd Was not
Afraid of Germans
�����,nu of thc stories of the war that
will be told to future generations of
French children is that of Mme. Pel-
lcquer and the village of Qucsniy,
north of the Oise. When war broke
out Mme. Pellcqucr was schoolmistress of the village school, her husband being schoolmaster at Mau-
court. Hc left for the front. On
August 19 thc Germans entered
Qucsmy. Thc mayor disappeared.
Mme. Pellcqucr took his place. On
October 1, when school was resumed, she combined the infant classes
at Maucourt with those at Qucsmy.
Between thc lessons she conducted
thc affairs of the village. She did
the_ work of two mayors and of the
registrar. She did thc administrative
work, and, above all, she was a ministering angel to the inhabitants..
The enemy admired and respected
her, for her goodness and because
she refused to give heed to the German-made decree lhat officers must
be saluted in the street. One day a
German lieutenant, seeing the maps
on thc walls of tlie school, pointed
out that Alsace-Lorraine were designed iu black "Why do yon separate them from thc empire?" he
asked. "Because they are ours," she
replied slowly.
Last March the enemy left. A
French lieutenant entered the village
with twenty mounted men. "It was
indeed a chief," said the officer, "that
I found at thc town hall when I arrived."
Maucourt also -will long be associated with the name of a woman���the
Coiutcssc de Chalbanne. "I would
like to adopt a village," she said to
the army authorities, and she adopted
Vfaucourt. She was responsible for
the erection, on its ruins, of small
houses built of wood. She decorated
them with flowers and flag�� and furnished them and then invited the inhabitants, who had dispersed, to return. "Come," she said, "return to the
well-loved ground from which thc
barbarians have chased you. Arc
they quaint, these plates? These curtains, are tliev stvlish? Come and
work. Already the grass hides the
stones. Tt. blots out the nifrhtmarc.

1ITH the brain as its centre,
the nervous system reaches
out to every organ of the
human body. From the spinal
column and from the various nerve
centres the thread-like nerve fibre3
find their way to every nook and
corner of the body, controlling all
movements atid action, and making
a living being of the mass of flesh
and bone.
Without the nerve force which
Is manufactured in the brain there
could be no beating of tho heart, no
breathing of the lungs, no digestion, no activity, no life.
It is only when you think of the
nervous system in this way that
you begin to realize its true
importance and to appreciate the
far-reaching effects of any derangement of the nerves. Any break in
this connection with the brain, or
any pressure on the nerve fibres to
interfere with the transmission of
nervous energy, means helplessness
or paralysis of the part affected.

Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful- The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams, Its lofty sky^scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral* while
the yellow power of earth^goldf it hides amid the
sands of many a creek Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of<acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP/' for lack of
cultivation, Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world* The scenery is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy,
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and yet it has a scant 400,OQO# Then
sings the little bird in the tree* "What's The
Matter With B, C/V
Nothing, except that it is like many a
business man. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B. C, the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada's provincial diamonds. Get a move
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the millions
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up. If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
and get your job printing atlthe same office.
