Scott McRae returned to town
on Tuesday morning from Lightning Peak. - Scott and "his party,
consisting pf Jack Cochrane, Joe
Christian and Chas. Noreen have
just completed the government trail
from Scbenck's ranch np the Main1
Kettle riverTbrough to Lightning
Peak in the Northern part of the
Greenwood Mining division.
-'In the past all those who were
fanailiar'with the country around
the Peak   claimed  that   to  reach
that section was by  way   of the
East Fork.    Scott in his exploring
found  this to be incorrect as iu
trying to locate a trail   by   that
route be was unable to reach his
destination.    On returning he followed the Main  Kettle for a considerable distance and finally turned east and after travelling across
country for some time he arrived
afc the Peak.
..Lightning Peak has an elevation
of about 7500 feet.    The Waterloo
mine in which Greenwood people
are interested lies abont two miles
north...Waters of the north-east
flow intOL the North- Fork of the
Kettle river.    All   the" waters on
north, west, and south slopes   flow
into   Rendell   creek.    The Basalt
ridgejs the dividing line between
the East Fork and Bendell creek
on which the camp at the Peak is
situated.    The East Forks empties
into   the   Main - Kettle  about 2J
miles from  the end of the wagon
road,   while' Bendell   creek goes
into the Main Kettle about a mile
north of Split creek,   onfche opposite side.
With the completion of the traij
it .will  be possible   to'make   the
trip with pack horses fcom Greenwood to the Peak   in^.four days.
The route will be via Boundary
crcak-r-Loat-'Crcek trail to-Waddell's-
ranch,  thence to   the   Schenck's,
and along the new   trail to   the
Peak.    This ronte is  a good one
as there is no hills to climb as on
the wagon road and trail that goes
into   the camp ' from   Edgewood.

go today with 25c to any druggist and;-southern part of the" province.     The
period between the dates of sowing
and maturity having been only 78
days,, it is believed that a record has
been established.
Although thc spring was thc latest
in years, and seeding was further delayed by continued wet weather, thc
exceptionally long days peculiar to
the north, together with the abundance of moisture always experienced,
worked miracles and a particularly
heavy crop is assured. It is estimated that the total grain production of
thc Grande Prairie District will
amount to four million bushels. The
average yield of wheat on properly
prepared lands will run at least 45
bushels to lhe acre, aud in some instances as high as 65 and 70, while
thc average of oats will run about 90
bushels to tlic acres and in somc instances as high as 140 bushels.
Thc Canadian Pacific Railway who
have but lately acquired the E.D. &
B.C. line from Edmonton to Grande
Prairie City, have announced that the
line will bc brought up to C.P.R. standards before fall sets in ancl that,no

is anticipated. Thc C.P.R. is making preparations to handle a big rush

Blind Babies
This Is An Open Letter to thc
Generously Disposed. .
A few weeks ago I came across in
thc London Spectator an appeal by
Sir Arthur Pearson, in behalf of a
specially helpless class of thc community, in which lie  says:���
"At Sunshine House, Chorlcy
���Wood, wc havc 25 babies who arc
bcing taught to<be littic normal Human beings, so far as that is possible,
from thcir earliest days until thc age
of five, when thcy arc transferred to
the residential schools for thc blind.
There-arc enough poor blind babies
in the Kingdom to fill six Sunshine
Houses, and I want money to enable
me   to  start' the  other  live."
From Ih's it would appear thai in
England there is room and need for
six homo.-; for blind babies and only
onc in existence. But here, in this
favored Canada, nothing has heretofore been done in this direction, except a movement commenced last
year by the late Mr. T. Hope Churchill, of.Toronto, .\ho, aftcr collecting

Largest Part of Grain Moved By
Lake Route.
In a report issued by the Dominion bureau of statistics, on thc
movement of last season's crop, it is
shown that only 253,607.bushels went
straight through to thc cast by rail,
cither destined for. points in eastern
Canada or to the eastern part oLthc
United Stales. As is always the
case, the largest shipment out of the
west went by way of the terminals,
Fort Wjlliani and Port Arthur,
During the crop ye^r* 97,467,240
bushels passed intov the public and
private elevators at these two ports
of shipment. ' ���
Two main streams of wheat are
shown as going into thc, United
Statcs. . Of these 2,797,037 bushels
went by wai' of Buffalo, and'1,167,-
959 bushels via other United States
lake ports, and 19,037,331 bushels
moved by rail from^the eastern pool,
while 184,109 bushels were cleared
for consumption in the United Statcs,
and 3,964,996 bushels from the ship-'
ments to lake ports including
Duluth. -
No' attempt is made to show by
what ports this wheat moved out of
the United States, but the movement
was entirely from Atlantic ports. -So
far' a$ exports arc concerned, says
thc report, it".is correct to conclude
that this wheat was exported into,
other countries by way of United
Statcs ports.'   .

a look of pitying impatience at thc

The 100-mile-aii-hour facc doesn't

Someone"has advanced the opinion
that the letter "e" is the most unfortunate character in- the English alp-'
habet, because it is always out of
cash, forever in debt, never o,uf of
danger,.and in hell alL-the time. Biit
we.calf attention to the fact that "e"
is never in-war, and always in peace.
It is thc beginning" of existence, the
commencement bf case, and the, end
of trouble. Without it there would
bc no meat, no life, no heaven'. It is
the. centre of honesty, makes love
perfect, and "without it there, would'
be no editors, devils or news.

What good seed means lo Canada
was vcry clearly shown by a few figures submitted by Mr. L. H. Newman, Secretary of the Canadian S*ccd
\ Growers'. Association, at the conference on Soil Fertility and Soil Fibre,/
held at-Winnipeg'by the Com'iiis.sion

Each spring Canada requires approximately 65,000,000 .biudiels --of
seed grain. and 9,000,000 bushels- of
seed potatoes, or about 3 pcr cent of
her annual  average production.
About 41,000,000 acres are anmially
plantcd to these crops in Canada.
An j'nercase of but one bushel -pcr.
acre of this area would .add approximately $80,000,000 to the wealth of
the -country. Onc of the chief
. methods of increasing production is
by thc morc general usc of seed of

from infection from bank notes is regarded as vcry doubtful���it was probably a coincidence;" 50 years' experience in Canadian banking has/ not recorded a case of the kind.
The effort- of thc banks is to take
i,WQrrf and soiled billsvout of circulation whenever- the opportunity presents. What this means is indicated
by the fact "that thc mutialtcd notes
of the Bank of Commerce burnt by
the directors during the seven months
ending June, 1920, represented a facc
value of $15,315,000, the actiial^num-
bcr of notes destroyed being 1,836,000.
Thc cremation ceremonies were 24 in
number, and were held on the bank
premises, where-the furnace used is
installed in the basement. The cost
of the "paper alone would be about
$-10,000,, indicating one item'- of expense -in banking which thc public
would seldom consider.
Accept a "iFew Francs Rather Than
Let .Them Starve.   '���'-.;,-.'--
The Sun and New York Herald
publishes the following despatch from
Lille, France: "A" widespread traffic in
little children has jpst been discovered in this locality, the police attributing it to the high.cost of living in the
devastated region. Mothers who'arc
unable to buy proper food fo'r their
bab'ies prefer to sell them for a fe\V
francs rather than see them -'starve, it
is said.    '
"Six cases of "this kind were discovered last week. In no instance was
more than sixty francs paid for a
child. Indeed, one '��� infant two
months' old was sold to a ^wealthy
and childless farmer for ten francs.
"Thc cc/urts arc threatening ' the
most severe penalties unlcssf,this
traffic in children ceases". It was
stated that thc authorities had traced
thc pr,acticeN of- selling children to a
colony which arrived here from the
French Alps sinci thc armistice was
signed. Ih the, French Alps, the selling of children is said lo bc a common occurence."   -

In substantiating this statement
that airplanes are safe, we find our
best argument in statistics collected
here and abroad by governments. 'It
should be borne in mind that these
figure's deal principally with land
machines, and that flying boats are
admittedly safer than airplanes. The
reason for this is that flying boats
can always land in water, while airplanes arc dependent on landing
fields which, al thc present lime, are
far from numerous. The flying boat
is not compelled to fly.high for
���safety's sake. It can skim along two
or three feet above water for hours
when fog or low clouds make high
flying hazardous. The boat' can always land safely if the fog descends
to the water or becomes too thick,
while thc airplane is not so fortunate. The Britisii air ministry, to get
back to thc subject, collected statistics? on all commercial flying in lhat
country for the last seven months of
1919. The results amazed even
pilots and engineers who had long regarded the risk in flying as negligible.
Thc figures covered 35,330 flights by
self in the way of temptation. The j 403 machines of a lotal time in the
only safe attitude toward strong air of 8,368 hours, during which time
drink is total abstinence, and the j 593,000 miles were travelled. In all
only sure'way of lotal abstinence is j this flying in good weather and bad,
not to even look at it.

Nature intended women to be
i strong, healthy and happy as .the day
I is long, instead of being sick and
wretched., But how can any woman
be healthy and happy when the whole
nervous system is unstrung. The
trouble is thcy pay more attention to
their social and household duties than
they /lo to their health. Is it any
wonder then that they become irritable and nervous, havc hot flushes,

Dairy and Cold Storage Series by A.

save heifer calves for the future

not correct, cows which have good

best cows for breeding purposes'.

Testing," may bc secured free upon

which shows' that many farmers have
increased the production o f their
herds from 30 to 7S"pcr cent, and somc.
have doubled the herd average in a

been followed for a few years, a decided increase in the average production of each cow will be found.

Osoyoos Celebration ,
The Osoyoos. celebration on
Labor Day was a great attraction
for the people of they dry: State of
Washington, as there were no less
than 203 permits issued to auto
owners and horse driven vehicles
on.that day at the port of Oroville.
Owing to the amount of drunks
that were around the Provincial
Police put a quietus on the affair
by closing up all. the stands that
were selling near beer and other
wet goods.
In referring to the celebration the
Penticton Herald says:
. "A good many Penticton' men
were in attendance to give/the day
a boost along.. D. S. Riordan was
on hand with a genial smile. He
aperated a stand where the bystander spun a wheel for a big doll."
These stalls/are common   on the
/.Vancouver and Westminster fair
midways...<   ,/S y-X-X- :���'
..-It/was qui_et_eyident,\_even^. from
casual observation that the drink-
. ables comprised; more than beer.
. In fact,  unopened. bottles of rye
..whiskey were found in numbers on
: the grounds, and men ymust \ be
pretty drunk these dry days to
overlook sealed, bottles of Goodep
ham & Worts wet goods.
/   '' 'I saw about 2QQ drunks there,"
said/one provincial policeman.
'According to general report the.
stampede  and    other  celebration
..events were a frost, ylri [ factK the
whole success of the/day lay in the
excitement   and/conviviality/ in-
. ducedby the spirts and near-spirits.
Fights, were ;plentiful..   An Ih-
' dian named Jack was badly beaten
up .  by/ ���< two-American-Irishmen
. named Hannigari and McClosky,
and. but for the arrivalof the police
- it is!said that he would have been
all in.   Hannigan and McClosky
were fined $20 and costs each by
. Government, Agent J; R. Brown on
Tuesday at Fairview.
Louis Martin, an American Indian, got into a rumpus and in
arresting him Constable King sustained a broken finger. Constable
Stewart was hit over the. head with
a bottle. Martin was fined $20
and costs or one month by Government Agent Brown.. -.. H ^/

Nearly 60 couples attended the
dance on Friday night, given
under the auspices of the Boundary Branch of the G. W. V. A.,
when a most enjoyable time was
spent. Bush's orchestra was iu attendance, for the first time in oyer
two years, and as they are noted,
for being the best dance musicians in this part of tbe country,
it goes without saying that the
music was all that could be desired. Floor manager, W. B.
Fleming kept the dancers busv
and with his promptness aud
witticisms, for which he is famous' and all went merry and
bright till the wee sina' hours.
The supper supplied by the
ladies was greatly appreciated by
all. So successful was this dance
that the G. W. V. A. have been
asked to give a dance once a
month and The Ledge understands they intend doing this
provided it does not conflict with
any lodge or other dance that
may be held.
