To a fish fly a day must seem a
long time. In fact it is a whole
life time. The fish fly has*nothing to do with the rearing of its
own young. _ It produces the
eggs and that ts all. Intercourse
with its own babies is denied it.
It knows nothing of�� family life.
It misses the happiest part of
human life, when the babies are
growing from infancy to manhood. In comparison with this
period in the life-of a man, nothing else is worth while. v Without doubt if this piece were left
out, hnman life would cot be|
worth living. A contemplation
of this fact makes the distance
between human and insect life
more profound.

The trout fishing is wonderful
this ^year. These fish are not

can do is to join with the sportsmen iu the general rejoicing over
the revival of the old time trout
The .tendency to cry "down a
small town is universal. It.is a
trait of human ^ nature. The
bargains to be procured in other
towns were constantly in our
thoughts and dtx our ' tongues.
Our information concerning these
things is seldom authentic, but if
no one talked until lae was on
sure ground the English tongue
would soon be forgotten. We
must be constantly saying something in order ,to keep alive the
trick of speech".
Thomas Jenkin, srM/ of Che-
welah, Wash,, father of Thos.
Jenkin, of Greenwood, died last
Friday at the ripe old age of 75
years. He had been ill for some-
���time and death was not unexpected. Mr. Jenkin -was a well
known and prosperous farmer
and was highly respected by all
whohad"thlTprivilegeof his acquaintance; He leaves three
sons to mourn him, - Henry,
Joseph and'Thomas. .The funeral
was held' on Sunday under the
auspices of "the I. ,0. O.'F. of

Also Mr. and Mrs. I. Breslauer,
all of Spokane. They are on a

Dr. Oppenheimer, who at' one

district and owns the City View
mineral claim near the Prince
Henry, and the Salamanca Fraction in,South Deadwood camp

Breslauer wa? a prominent business man in Greenwood in the
early days being proprietor of
the Greenwood Trading Co., with
headquarters on the corner where

threw a match or cigarette end
near the base of the old .store
next the Pacific Hotel. Fortunately "the blaze was noticed by R:
Taylor and a few buckets of

fire which in a very short time
would have caused a conflagration of a magnitude hard to

know the danger- from carelessness, in handling matches, etc.,
especially in the vicinity of
places as this mentioned as the

The City Council held a lengthy
meeting on Monday evening, Aug.
7th in the City Hal], Mayor Gulley
presided and all Aldermen present.
Bylaw No. 2 was given final reading and passed without.any dissentient.
A matter relative to Improvements on the sidewalk on Long
Lake St. was turned over for action
by the streets committee.
The report of the water committee was presented  and   discussed.
The repairs on Twin Creek  reservoir are proving the salvation  of
water supply as no leakage _ whatever isjjaking place.     The  whole
of Twin creek is now  turned into
the resevoir and by judicious use
on the part of consumers, the city
from   Kimberley ' Avenue   to the
South end of Silver St.   should  be
well supplied.      Repair   work  on
the wooden mains from Lind creek
is still proceeding and  the intermittent supply of water to the people south of Silver St. will soon be
remedied.    Three cases   0/   disregard of the sprinkling hour from 6
tp 7 were brought to tbe notice  of
the council'but as   the informants
did not wish to have   their names
disclosed no action could be taken,
but the premises of the ones mentioned will be.closely  watched and
all water service immediately cut
off at the instance of any member
of the council or city officials  who   ~
discover   the   delinquents.      The
council expressed its determination
to support the water committee in
its efforts to prevent   wastage and' -
to ensure a reasonable supply-for
the rest pf tbe season.
'Copy-of a notice of  application
for a water right on Twin Creek by
Mr. W. Jenks of the Phoenix Rd. ���
was referred by the water committee to"the whole   of   the   council.   .
The City Trustee had already   in-- ,
Bferuc'ted the "committee to oppose  7-
such application and this was endorsed by the council who are taking no chances  of  the -supply of
water for the city being jeopardized.
The pound committee recommended that a telephone be installed in
the residence of the ponnd-keeper, .
and this matter will be decided in
the very near future.    It is .very
probable that summonses   will  be
issued against the owners of refractory animals which remain in the
city   after   the   pound   keeper   is
unable to handle them.
Dr.   Oppenheimer,   of Spokane,
formerly of Greenwood, and still a   ,
property owner-here,-called -on the���*~"
Council during its session and  expressed   his* appreciation   of   the
efforts being made to keep the city
in such   good   shape   during the
hard times.   He spoke in the most
optimistic manner of the future of
Greenwood and mentioned instances coming under his notice recently of enquiries being made,regarding the Boundary country, and his
confidence in the place was enough
to compel him to hold his property
and pay his   taxes regularly and
promptly.      Tbe members of the
Council were gratified with the visit
of the well known doctor who announced his   intention   of paying
more frequent pleasure visits to the
city anc! district.' ���  ���
G. E. Bartholomew, ot Soring-
dale, Wash., is doing some "work
on hss claims io this vicinity. Mr.

Mine, work to commence in a few
days. _

The Anaconda School will be kept
open if there are six or more regular pupils, according to a letter
received by T. Hartland from the
Department of Education. ��� On
Monday August 7th a meeting was
held in the school house with E. F.
Keir-in thc chair and school matters were thoroughly discussed.
S. Bombini, J. Keady and Mrs. F. ,
Maletta were elected Trustees and
Mrs. Maletta was appointed Sec.,-
Treas. It was shown that there
would be more than the required
number of pupils attending and the
school will be open next term.

S3H THE     LEDGE.     GREENWOOD.     B.     C.   /
The Short Work Day
Alany tilings which aro flue in theory, and hi support of which seemingly
incontrovertible arguments can be advanced, do not come up to expectations
nor prove a success when the acid test ot actual experience is applied. All
right in theory, they are failures in practice.
Since the war, ami in ihe topsy-turvy period which lias been one of the
aftermaths of the great struggle, riuilc a number of ideas over which people
theorized have been given a trial. Russia has gone the limit in socialistic
experiments, confiscating property, placing a ban on capital, and generally attempting lo run the country on plans never before attempted, but which had
for years been lauded and advocated by certain theorists. Tlie world knows
the result���Russia ruined, an outlaw among the nations, her people starving
by the hundreds of thousands, her lands unfilled to a great extent, and her
great industries idle and useless.
ln other countries, including Great Britain, United Slates, Canada and
Germany, thc experiment of greatly reducing the daily number of hours of
work is being tried out with, as yet, no appreciable results of a beneficial
character resulting to the workers, while the effect on industry and commerce
generally, and on the living costs of all people has been disastrous.
Germany probably reveals the best example of the results of this experiment. Under the old autocratic form of monarchial Government, the workers
of Germany had to work long hours. Following the revolution and the abdication of the Kaiser, a Workers' Government came inlo power. Hours of
labor were greatly reduced, the old nine and ten-hour days being replaced by
an enforced eight-hour day for all occupations, and to seven and six hours for
certain arduous occilfcations. The experiment has not been a success, and,
although Germany still has a Workers' Government, it is now proposed to
add one or two hours to the workday. This policy Is not one being forced
on the workers; It is the labor leaders themselves woh see the necessity for
the longer workday.
.-- The theory back of the much shortened workday is that the free time
thus provided for the worker is to go into the family life, recreation, study���
in short, to enable the workman and his family to cultivate qualities valuable
to the family, society and the coming generation, to improve health and generally enable the worker to devote more attention to his home and self-Improvement. Germany, however, is learning by experience that shortening of
the workday below a certain figure develops Into a problem of disposition of
the free time.
It is pointed out by a writer in The Saturday Evening Post that when a
twelve-hour workday is .shortened to ten hours the disposition-of the two
hours does not constitute a problem, but when this free timc is extended
from two hours to four or even six hours a day a civic and economic problem
arises. It has been found-that this free time is devoted to a marked extent
to one1 form or another of waste. The waste, il is pointed out, is often
economic, in that the free time is devoted to trivialities that reduce the family
Income for necessities. In a word, the fact is that the free time;has, with'
many, not been devoted to social, cultural, or economic ends, nor even to
recreation, but has becn worse than wasted, resulting not in an improvement
of the condition and health of the worker, but in all round loss to him and his
family. '   * v
German labor leaders arc awakening to the fact that their old theory that
with a shorter workday, the output per hour Avould be Increased is not working out in actual practice; that, the physical condition and morale of the
worker has not improved; and that the only way to increase production and
thereby enable Germany to.pay.her debts ahd rehabilitate her industries, is
to Increase the workday!- They realize that tlie present salvation and future
iiope of Germany depend upon increased production,' and that this can only
be achieved by longer hours of labor. '"     .." '-.-���.
Germany .does not standalone in the, need for increased, production. .-"The
whole -world suffers from the same need, and particularly .Industrially, developed nations like Great-Britain, the United States and Canada. If the shorter
workday had resulted-.in the physical and intellectual improvement of the
���worker and his family^ then the .gain-.would have offset the loss in.production, but when there is no gain in that-..direction, but only loss to'ad.d to loss,
ii. is'becoming increasingly evident that the extreme short workday is "a mistake "economically, both for the nation and the individual. ..        ���, . f
Germany's New Hate Hymns
France Justified in Her Fear of
Another War
Thc parallelism between recent articles iu the Berlin Deutsche Tageszeitung and the magazine published
in America by George Sylvester Vier-
cck is striking.
The theme is the same in both
cases���namely, France, its character
and ils conduct. Tlie Tageszeitung
raises the question of whether a
Frenchman more resembles a tiger or
a gorilla. It reaches the amiable conclusion that he is a mixture of both.
France, we aro told,- has a poisoned
race soul and is addicted lo the crucifixion of human beings. A Frenchman, it appears, is never so happy as
when engaged in nailing a tortured
fellow creature to a cross. As fierce
as a tiger and as "cunning and fiendish
as a gorilla, the Frenchman is present-
I cd as a vile monster the gentle German is unhappily compelled to. tolerate as a neighbor. The Tageszeitung
appeals lo ihe friends of Germany
throughout thc world, especially those
in America, to spread knowledge concerning lhc true character of Franco.
Vicreck does his utmost to comply.
He begins by saying that "France is
the Cain among nations." "Her international manners," he declares,
"are those of a pig, a pig clad to the
snout in shining armor." Further we
learn: "The French may bc human
beings. Rational beings they are
not." And so on and on. Vicrock
hymns a hate more passionate than
that of Lissaucr.    -
Formerly, ii; was the Brilon who was
to be cursed with every breath. Now
there are. oily smiles for John Bull
and much deprecatory scraping and
blowing as he draws near. France
has become the abominable one.
Germans, whether in the Fatherland'
or in other lands, doubtless deem
their new propaganda subtle and convincing. If the amazing things about
the amazing German mind nothing is
more amazing than the German inability to understand how other folks
Yet for Germany so to spurt venom
is not all a joke. It impedes world
disarmament. It makes almost impossible further reduction of thc
French military establishment. It
justifies French fear that Germany
still has a will for war. In every
way it postpones reconciliation.- Yet,
blind with rage, organs which pretend
to express German opinion devote
themselves to fanning-German hate.������

French Deserter Was Foolhardy
What France Fears
May   Be   Unable to. Demand   Repara-
���   tions If "Armament Reduced ���
It "is-not so much the fear "pf .invasion.���at any- rate "of   immediate, invasion���which governs the French "attitude; it is the fear that she may in
the'end be' left ' powerless   to.-, extract
the demand for just reparations which
has been .repeatedly.endo'rsed. by this
country and, indeed, by. the.cpmmon-
"sense' and "equityor tlie world. "Against

When America First
Appeared on Map
New World Designated by Italian
,, ,-, Artist in .514
"America" . first appeared on the
map of the world drawn by no.less an
artist than .Leonardo da Vinci, and
Major, "the expert on the/science of
map':drawin.g, .explains the- circum-"
stances as follows: '-'.'���
'-__ "The first map known to' exist with
the-new" world delineated upon it.is
that drawn .by Juan de. la Cosa. the
pilot, of Columbus on his second voyage.. This'map is dated 1500., Juan
de la Cosa ..was with' Oj.cda and Ves-.
pucci, and' afterward, with Ojeda on
his'-last-and ill-fated expedition.
. "In. May, .1507,7 just - thc. year "after
the death of Columbus, a man named
Martin Waldseemuller wrote - a .book
to which, was appended-.a -Latin, account of the four voyages of Vespucci.
In this book,-published at St. Die in
Lorraine, Waldseemuller proposed
that the name 'America' should be given; to- the new-world, in -honor of Ves:
pucel.-wtiom he erroneously supposed
was the discoverer of the; continent."'
' '.'In -1508'-the firstengrayed map containing the new world-appeared in an
edition-of Ptolemy, printed at Rome;
but-this does not bear the name 'America.? ��� But .in 1509 this, name appears as"-if it were already accepted,
as a well-known denomination In. an
anonymous, work, entitled . 'Globus
Mundi;'' published at Strasburg."
. "The.map of the. world of, Leonardo
da' Vlncl, presumably issued, ih 1514,'
has* the name 'America' . across the

Arrested    on    Swiss    Frontier   After
Defying Police for Years  ,
A wealthy Frenchman, F. Bertrand,
described as a deserter, has been arrested at Geneva at a moment when
he hadjjractically one foot on either
side of the Swiss and French frontier
line, in a cafe that straddles- the bor;
der. The cafe is in the village of
Saint Julien on thc international
boundary. Part of the building is in
Switzerland and part in France.
Early in the war Bertrand settled
in Geneva where, his accusers aver,
he made a large fortune trading
with Qermany. He bought a villa
and several automobiles, and led a
life of ^ pleasure.' He said he was
more French than Gernj^n, and took
pleasure in speaking against France,
particularly in the cafe at" Saint
Julien where, safe on Swiss territory in one of the drinking rooms,
he could be overheard and even seen
by the French police in the rooms
on the French side;
There the French listened to his
annoying talk but, unable lo catch
him on lhe French side, thcy could
not arrest him. Bertrand boasted
that���when there was no police
about���hc would enter France aud
return without a passport.
Bertrand, after dining wcjl, 'crossed
the border by going from the room
on the Swiss side' to greet some j
friends. At the instant he passed
the line into France he was pounced
upon by two French gendarmes. He
put up a fight, but was, quickly subdued, handcuffed and carried away.

Strained Muscles, Sprains,

In minor sprains, the muscle is
strained a little and all that is needed
is a vigorous rubbing with Nerviline.
This draws the extra blood awaj^���and
permits the muscle to return to its
normal condition. The supremacy
Nerviline enjoys is owing to its penetrating power,rit strikes deeply, that
is why it removes deep-seated pains,

The proposal that Britain's army
sliall be reduced to a strength of
ninety thousand of all ranks which is
to be made when the mixed commission of the League of Nations presents its report to the Council of the*-
League, in the near future, is being
generally condemned by the 'British

This is, however, merely the revival

In 1750 this law was modified and
the tax was based on the profession
of the deceased.
To bury a workingman $1 had to
be paid. The tariff exacted $5 for a

Method Is Same As Used In Measur-
\ ing Water
The language of the electrician is
'Greek to most people' While he talks
glibly ot volts and amperes and watts,
they know only tha.t they have lo pay
an electric light bill fc>r so many units,
and let it go at that!
Though electricity'. is not a fluid,
most of its terms can be, compared
. with water flowing through a pipe.
] Xurn a stream of water onto the pad-
j dies of a water-wheel, the work that
the wheel will do depends upon two
things���the amount of water delivered every second and the pressure bf
tlie stream. The first is measured in
gallon^ and the second in pounds.      **
In the case of electricity, however,
the rate at which it flows is measured
in amperes and���its pressure in volts.
Thejwork' which it>will do is found by
multiplying amperes and volts together, which gives- the answer in watts,
or units of energy
The unit is 100O wattsV often called
a kilowatt, which is the electrical
equivalent of one horsepower.
You will find the number of watts
they require engraved on most electric'lamps, and from this you can discover what they will cost to use. A
25-watt lamp will use one'unit of 3000
watts in forty hours' burning.
The ohm Is another-, electrical instrument which can be understood by
a ccomparison' with water. .Water
flows easily through a large pipe, but
if the pipe is narrow, only a small
quantity can force its way through.
What the pipe is to water, the wire
'is to electricity. The smaller -{he
wire,.the more difficult electricity will
find it to pass, because the fine wire
resists its flow. Wires are measured by their resistance in,ohms.

result of a severe wetting I got while
out in a rain storm, I was attacked
with neuralgia, from which I suffered
greatly, and ..which kept me awake
night after night: Although the pain
diminished somewhat, I began tp^cuf-
fer in other ways. My appetite wits
poor; I got thin and had no energy.
Indeed I was becoming a wreck of
my former self. I was advised to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I am
more than glad that I followed tbe
advice, for they have restored me to
my���old-time strength. I cannot recommend' the pills too highly and
hope other persons in poor health will
give them a fair trial.'"'

When the Auto Loses

no one has ever heard of an auto
knocking a train off the tracks. It

I. Hainan's Wicked Plot Against the
Jews (3:1-4:3).
1. The occasion of (ch. 3). Mor-
decai refused to bow down to Hainan
whom" the/ king had elevated to the
place of prime. minister and commanded that reverence should be
shown him-Joy all_ the princes and
servants. In order to get rid of Mor-
decai Hainan formulated a scheme
and secured the king's endorsement to
destroy all" the Jews.
2. Fasting and mourning among the
Jews (-1:1-3). In their distress they
sought the Lord. They did that
which all those who' believe in God
had a right to do (Jas. 5:13).
II. "Hainan Checkmated (4:4-7:10).
1. Plot made known to Esther (vv.
4-8). . jiordecai appeared before the
king's gate clothed in sackcloth. This
condition was reported to Esther by
heP maids and chamberlains. Upon
his refusal to put away mourning
Esther sent Hatach, her special attendant, to find out the cause of it.
2..Message to Esther (v. S). This
was in the form of a charge that she
go unto the king and make reauest
for her people.
3. Esther's hesitancy (vv. 9-12).
This,was on the ground of a certain
law which .made it a capital offense
for anyone to come into the king's^
presence unbidden unless the king
should extend clemency by holding
out the golden scepter. The fact that
Esther had not been called to come
in for thirty days would seem that
the queen was in disfavor.
4. Mordecai presses her obligation
(vv. 14, 15). (13) Her own life was
involved (v.. 13). She might meet
death if she went to the. king unbidden, but most certainly she, would
meet death" if she made no effort to
avert the danger, j Being^in.the king's'
house would not save hei*. for the' decree had been made against'.the. race
of which she was a part. Her silence
on this occasion would mean death.'
(2) She was not God's last resort (v.
14). He argues that deliverance
would come from another source.
God's work goes on and His purposes
are' fulfilled regardless of the decisions of men. (3) Reminds her that
she had probably been raised up for
this very work (v. 14). Every one
has been born and. prepared for some
definite work. God's providence
brings us--into the particular'circumstances where, we can most deflnitely
do His will.
5. Esther meets the call of duty
(4:15-5:3). (1) Preparation by fasting (v. 16). She instructed Mordecai
to gather together alf the Jews in
Shushan and fast for her for three
days and nights. She with her maids
presence of the king (5:1-3)." Having
did the same. (2) Went into the
made the decision to do her duty regardless of consequences, after due
preparation by fasting and prayer, she
presented herself in royal apparel in
the presence of the king. She decided tliat- the best thing she could do
was to lay her life on the altar. "If
I perish, I perish," ought to be the
watchword when face to face with
duty. (3) King's promise to Esther
(v. 3). He assured her that her desire would be granted even to the half
of his kingdom. s    -
6. Hainan hanged (5:4:7-10).
Esther was shrewd as well as courageous. She invited the king and his
prime minister to a banquet. At this
b/mqueirshe proposed_anothe~f~for~the
following day, at which time she
promised lo make known to the king
her request. Haman* went home
jubilant, but that night something occurred which turned the ''tide. The
king discovered that no reward had
been granted Mordecai for having
saved his life. Haman is compelled
to exalt Mordecai, and at the second
feast th,e queen revealed his wicked
treachery and he is ordered , hanged
on the gallows which he'had prepared
for Moredcai.      '
III. The Jews Delivered (chs. S, S).
Hainan   Avas " dead,   but the decree"
against the-Jews still stood. Esther
pleaded that it be reversed. While
il could not be reversed, through her
influence another decree was sent out
which in a large measure counteracted the first. The Jews everywhere were granted the privilege to
defend themselves and destroy their
enemies.' '      '   ���
