The pumpkin pie is a delicacy
of the season. There is some
authority for "punkin", as most
Canadians call it. Some people
fancy the pie tastes better when
it is just plain "punka," but
precise people want- it "pumpkin," if it does spoil the pie a
little. It is easy to spoil a
pumpkin pie in the making, and
there is very little satisfaction ia
a poor pie. The original pumpkin pie was supposed to have
been spiced with Jamaica ginger,
and sweetened with maple sugar.

Skating Rink Meeting
A Public Meeting will be held
on Monday, Oct. 29feh at 8 p.m., in
the Board of Trade Rooms on Copper St., to discuss the advisability
of running the Skating Rink this
coming season.
LaBfc season the Rink was
financed largely by subscription and
entertainments of various kinds.
The amount taken in for skating
w��b 8168.00, being $11 less than
the wages, paid. .The expense of
running the Rink amounted to
8370.00 exclusive of the expenses
incurred for the various entertainments which.amounted to another
8120. The number skating was
20 ad alts and 60 children. From
the above it will be seen that the
cost was altogether out of propor-.
tion to the number skating and
unless this expense can be cut considerably it is not worth while
running the Rink.
In the event of there being no
skating the $60.00 required for
insurance, will presumably have to
be paid. So it should be to the
interest of all to attend this meeting and try and find some way
whereby tha Rink can be run.
Under the above circumstances
the present Rink Committee will
resign at fehe said meeting.

War Memorial Fund
Have you paid  your subscription to The Ledge?
A meeting was held last Saturday, Oct. 20th at Midway, for
the purpose of deciding what was
to be done regarding the . memorial to be erected in memoryof the
soldiers in the Greenwood district who gave their lives iu the
"great war."
The meeting was well attended and many took part in the
discussions, z- The Committee,
(Miss Debney, Messrs. McCurrach and Lander) reported that
during the two weeks $150.00 -had
been collected and there was no
doubt that $100.00 more could be
rounded up.
It was agreed upon by all
present that a monument composed of rocks, in pyramid form,
be erected in the vicinity of
Ingram Bridge and a tablet with
the names of the dead soldiers
inscribed thereon, be set in the
rock work. .���.---.
A committee to take charge of
the work was appointed as follows: Miss Debney, Rock Creek;
R. D. Kerr, Midway; P. H. McCurrach, Greenwood. fc
It was decided thatj when the
committee Had everything in
order, a working bee would be
called for the purpose of hauling
the materials for the memorial.
This work to be donated.
The committee has ascertained
that^ from $250 to $300 will be
required to defray all expenses,
and it is earnestly requested, that
all who can will subscribe to this
worthy object. Should there be
any funds left over after the
memorial is erected, they may
possibly be used to assist returned soldiers who are in need.
The fund is still open and subscription lists can be seen at the
Bank of Mqntrfial, Bank .of Commerce, Post Office, Court House,

The Memorial Fund is growing,
Kettle Valley at present leading in
subscriptions. Greenwood, Midway, Myncaster, Beaverdell, and
Carmi have also responded to the
appeal. The result from the other
parts of the district ia poor, but the
writer feels sure it is only a question of organization for the
rest to take their place amongst
the others in this little matter of
respect, to those, who gave-everything for us.
Allenby Copper Company
During the week a further reduction has been made in the
number of men employed by the
Allenby Copper Company, and a
still further reduction which will
bring the total number of employees at both mine and mill
slightly under the hundred mark,
is contemplated.
It is expected that the reduced-
force will have no difficulty in
completing all the improvement
now under way by~th~e"end~of the
year. Then, unless there should
be a decided improvement in the
copper market, which present
prospects do not indicate, all
operations will cease until such
time as the conditions warrant
the working of the mine,
Workmen from outside points
are warned against coming- to
Princeton seeking employment.
Due notice will be given by the
company when men are wanted.

Go-Operation In Empire Building
Tin- announcement of Ui'.- liritlsh (.overnniem made 10 lhc Kmpire ICeou-
ri'.uie Couferoiico now sit tint? in London, thai it was prepared to. extend tho
preference in favor of tlio overseas l>ominions on certain articles i.s a heallhy
Hign oi' the new determination growing throughout tho Kmpire of developing
trade between tho different members of the lirills.h family of nations. It
opens lho door wide open to a discussion of tho whole subject of preferences,
and it noi improbably may prove but a first instalment of mutual and voluntary preferences calculated to be of immense value to the various Dominions'
and  iho Old Country.
Canada first inaugural ed the policy of granting a preference to (treat
Britain in IS97 and it has maintained that policy, irrespective of the political
complexion of th.- party iu power. The growth of the preferential idea has
not heen as rapid as, some hoped it would be, nor has it been extended by
Canada from year to year wiih a view to rhe removal of tariff restrictions on
trade within the Kmpire as many people thought wight be the case. Tho
fact, however, that noboby liars seriously advocated discontinuance of tho
policy of preferuiie.es is most encouraging, while fhe platforms ot at least
two political parties contain declarations in favor of enlarged preferences.
Tho method of granting preferences may be open to debate and a subject
for parly controversy. "With ihe question of method we are not much concerned, aud, inasmuch as ir is more or l>-ss of an issue between parties, wo
i'.o mu propose to discuss 1c. Few. however, take exception io the principle,
and thai, after all, Is the important, vital thing.
Cr"at Britain, for example, may deem ic quite impossible lo grant Canada
find Australia a preference ou wheat and cattle because that would involve
imposing a Customs duty on all foreign-grown wheat and cattle, thereby taxing iho food supplies of the 1-irillsh people. But through its predominant
position in tlie money markets of tlie world, through its great shipping Interests, its great milling companies. Great. Britain can most effectively grant a
preference io these overseas Dominions by giving first consideration to the
purchase and transport of Kmpire products, and a quite secondary place to
those of other couutrii.-s.
Further reductions by all parts of rhe Kmpire in postage rates to all other
pans is quite feasible.. it would not involve; placing any additional tax on
the people. On iho contrary it would reduce taxation, and by encouraging
correspondence between all pans result in a still better understanding and
in thc development of trade.
Tho steady development of cable and wireless communication within the
Empire would have the same result.
Aud all (lungs being equal why should one part or the Umpire not grant a
voluntary preference to other parts when awarding contracts ancl placing
business? Again...merely -as an. example, why should Canadians in placing
their live and lifts insurance -not" stipulate lhat the "policies be written with
Canadian or-other Umpire companies, instead of 'with those'of foreign countries. This, by- way. "of. iTiuslratiqiif-.it. 'can be applied.-in many' branches, of

Outlook For World Wheat Supplies
guying Power of Europe to ba Factor
In Disposal of Surplus
The crops in Western Europe are
considerably in excess of last year's
and about equal to those of the pro-
war period, says the National Bank of
Commerco in New York.
Continuing, in the October issue of
Commerce Monthly, it states that:
"""The partial restoration of agriculture in Russia and expectation of n
record wheat crop in Canada, together
with an assured. crop and restricted
purchasing power in Western Europe,
have combined to provide a supply of
wheat for the 1923-2-1 harvest year
which promises to be somewhat heavier in relation to prospective demand
than the crops of the two preceding
years. Any estimate of thc net world
surplus of wheat must bo a rough
guess at best, for it is subject to-many
and conflicting influences. Some of
thc indicated surplus for the current
year would be absorbed if European
purchasing power approximated- prewar siandards. Per capita consumption in Europe is undoubtedly low and
ils restoration will be a slow process.
On the other hand a continued low
price of wheat should enable consumers to purchase considerably larger
quantities for the. same outlay of
money than at any time since the war
On a conservative estimate, total
world imports aro likely to range between 500 and COO million bushels.
Continuing tho bank says:
"Stocks are too small in Europe, a
fact wliich accentuates thc effect of a
large world carry-over upon thc market. Prior io tho war European Importing countries were accustomed to
buy heavily just after harvest, and
any surplus there, was at the end of

Canada's Bill For Sickness
Yearfy Amount is $300,000,000 Count-
* ing Loss of Time
A noted authority upon public health
is reported recently as saying that
?300,000,000 is Canada's yearly bill of
sickness. The inference that tho
doctors are getting rich, however, ia
repudiated by the statement that
members of this worthy profession receive only about ten per cent, of the
amount. Loss of time and other
causes make up the balance. He
goes oii to say: "A great deal is properly said about fire losses in Canada.
Last year J.hese totalled $50,000,000,
just one-sixth of (lie cost of sickness.
Such figures surely Illustrate tlie great
need of preventing epidemics, working
for tho extermination of communicable
disease germs, teaching people how to
take care of their health and the
health ofthe babies."

Is An Indication That the Blood Is
Thin and Watery
Thc first sign of rheumatism is frequently a pain and swelling in one of
the joints. If this is not treated
through the blood, which is the seat
of the disease, the poison spreads, affecting other joints and tissues���sometimes rheumatism attacks the heart
and is fatal.
A remedy ihat has corrected many
cases of rheumatism is Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. These pills enrich aud
purify the blood so that Lho poisonous
rheumatic matter is driven out of tho
system as nature- intended. Miss
Gertie Deune, Washago, Ont., was attacked with rheumatism aud found relief through Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
She says:���"About a year ago I was
altar-Iced by rheumatism and for two
weeks was confined to my bed. The
trouble was so painful, affecting lhe
joints of my limbs so that T could not
stand alone. Mother had a box of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in tlie house
and thought they might help me. I
bejean'hiking thorn, nnd whoa 1 had
taken these pills got a further supply,
with the result that the rheumatism
vanished _ancl_ l_was_aji\vell_girl. I
may add'that my mother and iwo of
my sisters have also used Ihe pills for
various ailments with equal success
When You | It is not too much to s'lty that Western Canada is built on wheat; wheat
to tho prairie provinces is ���what gold
is to tho Yukon, tho backbone of the
country; thc successful production of
wheat is of vital interest to Western
Canada, and tlio inroads made on the
wheat by the rust pest aro of general
In 1910 tho losses caused by black
rust exceeded 100,000,000 bushels.
The'year 1916 is what tho experts call
a rust year. Some years rust, strikes
hard; some 'years''It- almost misses;
this year it spoiled twenty million bushels in Manitoba; in Alberta aud Saskatchewan it was much'less injurious.
Twenty million bushels atv70 cents
a.bushel would bo$ll,00Q,000; this is
what rust has taxed Manitoba for tlie
1923 wheat crop.
That Is only tho financial loss���the
disappointment, lost labor and feelings
of helplessness experienced by the
farmers whoso crops were injured or
ruined must be added to the loss of
money and both together they mako'a
heavy burden to carry.
The problem is to get a good milling
wheat that is rust proof. Agricultural scientists are working hard to
find such-a wheat and everybody ln
the wheat areas should be wishing
them success. The problem is a
scientific .one,''but'tho' importance of it
ought to he grasped as a national
problem, the successful solution of
which will add .millions to the country's -wealth.
Wheat is one ot tho basic staples
of Canada. Timber is another of the
basic staples and iu the past five years
10,000.000 acres of forest have been
burned al au estimated loss of $72,-
Finding a cure for rust is a difficult
scientific task but the loss to the forests from fire is another story.
"Ninety per cent, of all forest fires
are preventable," is tho statement,
which has just been mado by the
supeilntendent of forest reserves.     ���
if this statement is accurate it
means that about ��6,000 of those forest fires need not have happened, and
that many millions of dollars worth of
; timber and property need not have
been Jost. It also very well may
mean ihat many lives need not havo
been lost, because the forest fires have
destroj e-rt numerous settlements and
l��ken their toll of human life.
