"We got Into the wharf about 8 a.m. A Czech guard of honor arrived with a band., The big drum was mounted on a little low-wheeled cart and drawn by a pony while the drummer marched along behind and hammered It! without any of the effort of carrying it. "General Elmsley and some five or six of us went on shore to the guard..] They are a fine looking lot of men, and the general opinion seems to be favorable to the Czechs. The men on board responded lustily to the general's call for, three cheers for the Cisecho-Slovaks, and I think the Im-Jjressloa made on the Czechs was 'good.

C, D^c. 5. - The following statement was made, by. a prominent resident of R'ossland who underwent treatment for influenza at the hands of the local Chinese doctor. He says; "The, treatment is simple and not painful! No bleeding is nefcessary unless the patient is seriously afflicted, wheiv the doctor massages the body with salt water and Chinese me-declne until a black spot develops, which proves, so the Chinese declares,' that the germ is in the blood. Should a black spot appear on any of the tw:enty or more, places massaged or treated on the (]ay following treatment, then the blood is removed by a needle piercing the skin. This blood l-contalns the germs. Otherwise, if : the black spot does, not appear the ^ germs have been attacked by the treat-ment and destroyed. The treatment is kept up daily, until black blotches appear, but seldom over two or three days' treatment is required. Germ is in the Blood � It is a well known fact that bodies of persons.Who have idled from the disease have turned black, hence ''it is claimed by the Chinese that (Jlelr theory relative to the germ being in the blood is correct. During treatment one must not eat fats, .pranges, use lemons, green vegetables or fruits, sweet potatoes aiid broth nourishment being perinltted only ifor two'days or until serloubness j of the case. Is determined. Alcohrbllc' stimulants positively prohibited during treatment.  ., "I suffered greatly from shooting pains in the head. The Chinese declared there was too much blood in the head and administeired a powder to the nostrils Very similar to oa^enne pepper in color, but a Chinese inedl-clne under Chinese l^bel, which caused me to sneeze at Intervals until my head was clear and a considerable | amount, of blood had been, given up' through the nostrils, but not causing any discomfort. � ' "I am firmly convinced the Chinese have the treatment which, will  save the lives of those attacked If It is followed to the letter and taken in early stages, although they, contend any case /can' be cured if the .patient wIU carry oiit instructions." He assures everyone they should J have not the least fear in taking thd treatment, and thinks medical men everywhere should at least investigate the methods whereby all Chinese and others have been saved where treated. /Cases at Bu^te "Butte is the latest place to report that hundreds of cases in Chinatown there have been treated and not a single death has occurred. A Chinese doctor at Butte claims to,have treatment very .similar to the one used at Rossland. . 7 , The Rossland Chinese ' says / lio would come,to Calgary or elsewhere and hold clinic provided' he'was compensated, 'Or would treat - patients If he were assured of non-interferepce by members of the medical r'fr?,tprnlty.

For two days the shirt and overall trac^es have been In session at the King Edwaitl Hotel discussing the various phases of an association after the style of the national association of the United States. For a loiig time closer co-operation- has been.felt to be necessary, but there always has been a feeling of aloofness among the various manufacturers. . The association's idea is not to fix prices, but simply to standardize stylgs and co-operate In the selection of materials and machinery. Labor troubles also will be referred to. the association for solution. One of the chief features of the organization will be to i.ereite an export trade.
