To The Editor Of The Ledgk
-   . t . With reference to the article
under heading of "A Correction" inserted hi your issue of June 2nd, I wish to
make known to the Midway Baseball
Club that it-was I, the undersigned, who
in the K. V. Notes of the previous week's
Ledge stated that Rock Creek was defeated iu the ball game of May 24th by
Toroda Creek. In writing this, I did notin-
tend or expect to cause any feeling of animosity, but as a believer in fair play and
just criticism, I contend that credit was
and is due the Toroda players for the
victory scored, the chief participants, in
the Midway team, hailing from"that
quarter, as the following list will prove:
"Midway"-team used George Manuel for
pitcher, Wm. Nelson for catcher both
permanent residents of Toroda Creek,
Wash. Two out o'f the three men on
bases were men, recent residents of
Toroda, namely Percy Hammerstrom and
.Wm Nicholas. The balance being made
up of Robt. Bruce of Kettle Valley, Hill
Hielscher, ..Thoinet and Willard Rusk.
Only the four latter' being absolutely
Midway men. ~ And after all is said
and done, does not the "game depend
mpstljy upoii thejefforts?~of tile-Pitcher
aud Catcher.

Airmen Protect Forests
Airplanes were used in the latter
part of last season in patrolling
Dominion forest reserves in the
West and the experiment will be
continued and developed this
season. This is the latest method
of patrol, but patrols wifl be con-
tinned with the aid of horses,
canoes, launches, and railway velocipedes, and on foot. Hundreds
of miles of telephone lines have
been erected on Dominion forests
to give quick communication between lookout stations and forest
headquarters. _ Lookout men stationed on mountain peaks or high
towers scan the horizon throughout the danger season and send in
warning at the first sign of smoke,
that fire-fighters may be sent at
once to the spot. Where there are
no telephone lines a system of
flash-light signalling, using heliographs by day and lanterns by
night, has been worked out. So
far as the funds available permit
the most modern methods. and devices are employed to protect the
great resources in our Dominion
Mining News
The Consolidated -Mining and
Smelting Company of Canada,
Limited, received 7137 tons during
the first week of this month.' The
shippers were:' Knob Hill, -Be-
public, 51 tons; Paradise, Lake
Windermere. 104 tons;' Company
Mines, 6982 tons.
It is reported that a wagon road
will be built to the Velvet mine
near Rossland. The road when
completed, will permit of ore from
the Velvet mine being trucked to
the smelter at "Tadanac, and it is
said it is the intention to push the
work to^an early completion.
Although there is a copjjjer surplus of 375,000,000 pounds available for home consumption in- the
United States, this is being depleted at the rate of about 50,000,r\
000 per month, according to A.1 G,
White, metal expert of. Boston,
Mass.   ���   .
Refinery output in America is atl
present about ,..40,000,000 , ponn.ds
per month which about equals current exports, he states. Home consumption is being almost entirely
taken care of from reserve stocks.
Wjth this condition of affairs existing, he expects 15-cent copper very
shortly, and 18-cent copper before
many monthB have passed.
At present copper in  British Coy
lumbia is slowly climbing in price.    \
The current "price ��� is about   13i
cents per pound for spot and about
a'quarter of a cent'a pound higher'
for future   deliveries.     Not, .long
ago"  iV Vasv"Vro"wn - to" 12- 'centsf-
.When the 14-cent'level'13 reached
the wages of the employees of the"
Granby    Mining,    Smelting   and
Power .company   at   the   Anyos
smelter '"���will   go up 25 cents per
day.    The smelter employees wort
on a sliding scale governed by the
price   of    copper.      About     two
months ago wages were reduced 25
cents per day as the rest of copper
falling below the 14-cent level.
Housing of Poultry  "
Not all who keep chickens either '
in town or country  know .how to
secure the best results from their |
flocks. - -For-Iack-of-knowledge the =-'
chicks often develop into - spindle-
legged,   small-bodied,   poor-laying
creatures.    And yet any amount of*
instructive literature is published
and can be- had  without  cost by :
applying to the Publications Branch ;
of the Department of Agriculture -,
at Ottawa. Housing shares in importance with feeding, if "the best
results are to be gained. In this
connection it is interesting to observe that a revised edition of the
bulletin on Poultry House' Construction by F. C. El ford, Dominion Poultry Husbandman, has jnst
been issued by the Department of
Agriculture at Ottawa, to meet the
constantly increasing demand for
information coming from almost
every class of the community. The
bulletin, which is based on trials
of various kinds of poultry hooses ^
in different parts of Canada, treats
of the subject clearly and comprehensively. Plans and building instructions, with illustrations and
diagrams, are eo given as to enable
anyone to erect such a poultry
honse as may be desired.
Operating Expenses
"The directors of the road are a
precious lot of grafters."
"Why do yon say that?"
"Every man of them had his appendix removed and charged the
cost to operating "expenses."

By E. L.
Elizabeth had a hard day. It had
been dismal and cold and the furnace
had been giving trouble, and thc
babies had been cross, and as "shc
looked discontentedly out at thc
snow-clad prairie, stretching away to
the horizon, she"madc up her mind,
as women sometimes will, that shc
and John and the babies should seek
a wanner clime. ���' What was the use
of living in a place, quoth she to herself, where it was so cold and miserable for such a great part of thc.ycar
and where the women and children
were of necessity cooped up in the
house all the time, and where, chief
aggravation, thcy had to spend so
much money on coal. No, wonder,
she thought, that so many people left
this God-forsaken spot and went away
to British Columbia or the Southern
States where in thc sunlight and the
flowers life must be worth while.
"o  . "'*    e   *        * *   ���
And while she undressed the babies,
shc still called them the babies although Harold was two and Winifred
nearly four, ways and means of getting out of thc cold prairie country
passed continuously through her
mind. Of course shc knew she would
miss her old friends, but then thought
shc, other people moved and they
had to leave their friends and seemed
quite contented in so doing. Elizabeth did not take into consideration
the fact that shc clung to her old
ways and her old associations more
than most people and forgot that the
prettiest scene in the world was always more enjoyable to her if she
could contemplate it surrounded by
those she loved," No, like so many
people who are guided mainly by impulse she did not go into the details
at all. She decided that, she hated
this cold, hard snow bound country
-and that; she wanted to live where it
.was softer, more pleasant, and beautiful. ' By the-time she had kissed the
babies "good-night" she had mentally
persuaded her husband,.to give up-his
< position, sell their home and, in fancy,
.she was sitting on.the train with the
,-' children bound for the "sunny south."
','- As luck would have it John came
home -from, the office . somewhat
dispirited.     Everything     had    gone
. wrong there on that bitterly cold, day;
there had been 'misunderstandings
with .the ofiice. force,, a scene with the
. boss, and .an. aggravating1-, story of
conscientious and ��� unappreciated effort, so that' when. Elizabeth unfolded
-��� her plan to him bf getting but and hieing themselves away, to a'place which
her fancy began to paint, as a veritable Utopia, he lent, a xcadycar and.
. said: "All right, I'll put the" Iiousj in
Green's hands tomorrow for "sale and
if we get our price, we'll get out.: - I'll
write to some firms where I might get

his boss," to get someone
handle his old job!"
It all worked like a charm. They
were able to sell their house at a
splendid figure, more than they had
hoped for, and just when thcy were
rejoicing over this piece of good fortune John received a very pleasing
reply to one of his letters of application, offering him a good position in
a small town in one of the southern
states. Elizabeth was delighted, and
even when thcy sold their furniture
hardly felt a qualm, so pleased did she
imagine shc was to get away from the
snow and cold of thc prairies. It
was only when her friends began to
look sad and when her mother shook
her head sorrowfully that she felt any
remorse, but -she tried to cheer bcr
mother up by saying: "Well, mother,
if it's nice there, ^perhaps you could
come too!" The old lady shook her
head and remarked:
"I am getting too old to transplant
now Elizabeth. I came to this
prairie country many and many a year
ago from dear old Scotland which is
beautiful enough, yc know, but I havc
gotten used to thc ice and thc snow
and the wonder pf the prairie with its
golden grain in thc summer after its
travail of thc winter months, and wc
have prospered here. Na, na, I
wouldna like to change again. Thc
prairie with all her hardness has been
a friend to me and mine and I'm
thinkin' I'll be buried here."
Elizabeth kncwi thc story of her
parents' immigration to the prairie
country, how they had 'come with
nothing and how thcy had worked
and striven and saved. ' For years
there had seemed little reward for
their efforts, but at last they came
into their own and from poverty had
gained comfort and a real competence
in their later years, and for a' moment
a little doubt crept into her mind as
to the wisdom of her plan arid then
she remembered a picture of the
beautiful country to which they wcrc
going, which had becn sent to her,
and as she visioned the children,
Harold and Winnie gambolling
amidst thc flowers and the roses, she
banished all regrets.      -<
*       *       *       *
���When John and Elizabeth arrived
in Maryland, thc roses were in full
bloom. The air was hot and thc atmosphere somewhat heavy, but of this
Elizabeth made no mention. She had
determined to like her new surroundings. ��� Then thc little prairie bred
children-began to wilt in the heat and
John looked paler, and paler as thc
days went by. .. Elizabeth, though a
sociable little soul enough among her
own folks was 'shy and distant-with
strangers and thc southern methods
did not appeal to her hardier notions
and so she_was left very much alone.
She, Elizabeth, who had becn tho
centre of her little community at
home!   .    '...   _   .
"Mamma," said.Harold one sunlit
day'in"July,"when the bees hummed
amidst.the- flowers,'.and^ the.- grapes
hurig heavy'-on the vines which climbed about thc house, "My" head aches
and my tummy hurts, I. would like "to
see my Gamma." The usually bright little fellow stretched himself quietly on
the couch in the sitting room and
Elizabeth'felt a pang .of dread as shc
looked at his heavy eyes and pal.e.littlc
face. He had never, been, sick at
home. She glanced' quickly at Winnie and thought the child seemed dull
too.' Was 'this'to bcMhe result pf
leaving her home and friends so that
.they might play in'the sunshine? She
asked herself. Was she. to lose-either
or both of her children? Her heart
cried out in protest as-she flew-to the
telephone and called a doctor. - --.  '
'-- Both the children-'were.:yc"ry very
ill.'and'thc.idoctor told'Elizabeth and
John that, the climate did not agree
with them. . Jolin,toOi had ah illness
and-. Elizabeth felt herself drooping
and languid,;.but she, felt she- dare-not

Plants Generate Electricity
Would Solve Light Problem If It
Could Be Used.
All living plants generate electricity
and when they die this, is discharged
into the air. If science could only
devise some plan for capturing this
dissipated electricity, and harnessing
it to the use of man, the problem of
light and power would be solved for
all time; for countless millions of
plants are constantly dying all over
thc world, and releasing an immense
amount: of electricity.,-- Electricians
tell us that if it were possible for all
thc trees in a forest to die at exactly
thc same moment a terrible catastrophe would be thc result. Everybody living within a radius of many
miles would be instantly electrocuted, and all animals and birds in thc
same area would suffer a like fate.
Sponge is Queer Fish
Grows Mostly on Rocks at Bottom
Of Sea.
Sponges were long thought to bc
vegetables, but they are now known
to. be- animals. Their appearance
When they come to the-market is so
unlike that of the living sponge that
it is quite to^be^cxpe'eted that seeing
it only in use one would hardly suspect its origin. The sponge grows
mostly at the, bottom of thc sea on
rocks to which it is fixed by a kind of
root. It is made up bf a jelly-hlce
substance and a frame wort of tough
fibers. This framework is really the
skeleton of the sponge; it is the
sponge of commerce. The skeleton
is covered with a jelly-like substance
and is sticky when taken out of the
water. Sponges are usually buried
in dry sand for a time until the jelly
part decays. They are then put in
'wire cages into the sea until'thcy are
washed clean.
Number  of  Inspectors in Manitoba
Has Been Increased.
��� Compared with five or six years
ago, there is a marked improvement
in tlie control of weeds in the province, and, judging from the spirit animating weed inspectors, that improvement will be even more rhark-
cd in future, according to Professor
S. A. Bedford, administrator of the
Noxious Weeds Act.
Prof. Bedford said conferences had
been held aT Winnipeg, Brandon,
Portage la Prairie, Minncdosa and
Dauphin. They had been called to
discuss thc provisions of the act as
amended at the last 'session of the
legislature, and had been well attended by weed inspectors, reeves
and councillors. The number of inspectors had been increased this year,
and a feature of the conference was
the way in which the more 'experienced men had made suggestions to
the new officials as to how to overcome difficulties.

Queen  of  Scots Possessed   a
Weird Watch.
The fragile watch of dainty pattern
and design, which today, is a favorite
among .women, is in^striking contrast
to some of thc watches which were
famous several centuries ago. Many
of these'were of'cnggnous size and of
the most ornate design.
Mary Queen of Scots was thc-pos-
sessor of a death's-head watch,
which was of silver gilt and most
elaborately^ ornamented. The forehead of the skull bore the symbols of
death, the scythe and hourglass plac-.
ed between a palace aud a cottage to
-show the impartiality of the grim desr
troycr. At the back of the skull was
Time destroying all things, and at the
top of the head, scenes of the Garden
of Eden and the crucifixion.   ~" "*
���The watch was opened by reversing
the skull, placing the upper part of it
in wic hollowof thc hand and lifting
the jaw by the hinge, this part being
enriched by engraved representations
of the Holy Trinity, angels and shepherds with their flocks. The works
of thc watch formed the brains of the
skull and were within a silver envelope which acted as a musically-toned
bell .while the dial plate was in the
place of the palate.

Merchants Bank Officials
Express Tempered Optimism
Regarding Business Situation
President and General Manager Review the Canadian Business Situation With Mitch Hope���Financial Position of
the-Bank an Exceptionally Strong One��� Crop Outlook
Encouraging. *
At the annual meeting of the- Merchants Bank of Canada, the various
reports which were-presented showed that- this institution occupies a commanding position in Canadian financial-affairs.' The addresses of the,President, Sir Montagu Allan, and the General Manager, Mr. D. C. Macarow,
were concise statements of present day conditions and contained an optimistic survey of the future. , ^These reports showed that every .department of
the bank is in a most excellent condition, and would indicate that this bank
is rapidly increasing the sphere of its influence in every avenue of trade and
commerce at home and abroad. ' ���
asse'ts show a shrinkage of about.
$7,000,000, or, roughly, 3j4 per cent.,
which, in view of all the surrounding
circumstances must be regarded'as a
satisfactory showing, the liquid position ���bcingxwell maintained thejwhile. s
Thc trend Nof our interes't-bear-
ing deposits for the sariie period has
been steadily upward, an increase in
that department of about $7,000,000-
being shown^but this gain -has been
more than ofrset"by the decline ir. the
total ordinary 'deposits. A year ago,
however, under the heading of demand deposits, a sunrof about $8,000,-
000 stobd to the credit of the Government in -connection V withA Victory
Loan payments. This amount, which;"
of course, was of a; purely temporary
nature, was withdrawn during thc
year so that, after making allowance
for it, the total deposits and total .assets,, about held, their own, ia satisfactory/- achievement we have- no^doubt
you'will agree. *    '
Crop Reports-Are Promising.
Crop conditions throughout the''
country are a,t the present momen
exceptionally promising. If I may
.say a word as to general conditions it
will be one of.tempered optimism,
having a due; comprehension. of the
many difficulties which rcquireto b'e
mcf but having, at the same time, a
proper appreciation of the actual and-
potential riches of this country.'
There   are fc indications    that    the>
monetary.position, broadly speaking.
U lesj stringent and that the general
��� liquidity of credit now in''-evidence i.s
^continuing to develop further.   '
Altogether, and in a word, it is not
difficult to bc an  optimist as _to the
future of "Canada Unlimited" to borrow thc apt expression recently "uscd-
by an eminent Canadian.
The Board of Directors was reelected, with Sir H. Montagu Allan as
President, and F. Howard Wilson as

"Thc general depression in business,
felt to a greater or lesser degree in
every country in the world, has affected the business of..the bank to some
extent, but^ye' hope thc low point of
depression has been, passed, and that
there will soon be a change-foi the
better., ��� The coal strike in England
which will no doubt result .in the loss
of a great deal of trade, atid the unrest and discontent which - seems to
prevail in nearly all thc covintrie-s of
Europe, give rise to scMous financial
problems, to bercckohed with, but no'
\ man in this country who .is strong/
and healthy, can afford to be a'pessimist for any length of time. The
known and undeveloped resources are
sufficient to ensure future prosperity.
New Issue~of Stock.
"As mentioned in "last year's report
a further issue of $2,100,000 of new
stock was made, making- the--paid-up
capital of thc bank $10,500,000,^ and b'y
thc transfer of the'premium on thc
new stock to the "rest account, thc
rest now stands at $9,450;000.
"The shareholders of the'ljank now
number 2,997,-as against_2,622 in 1920,
being an increase of 375 during the
year." - '
Current 4oans and discouiits stand
at $109,183,000, as against $113,198,000
last year. ��� It will be seen, therefore,
that this, bank continues'to-extend its
ample /share of assistance to the industries of the country.
General Manager-is Optimistic. '��� -
Following the president's concise
yet comprehensive review of the situation, a's reflected in the year's.statements, said Mr. Macarow, there is little left for me to add: beyond, ;per-

Well-he' realized'that if this, shot
was not a fatal'onc his chances wer,e

courage, though as lie told me- his
heart beat a little faster than' usual.
At last he noted a huge dead spruqe
tree fallcn\across thc track, and stopping ajid studying the situation he felt
convinced that Mr. Bear was cither
concealed behind this or very close
to it. Creeping up to within a few
feet of the tree, full cocking his
smooth bore gun, hc broke a dry stick
sharply and on the iiistant over the
tree came' the grizzly, mane bristling
like an angry dog, mouth wide open
With huge fangs exposed, growling
savagely he charged right at Robert;
hc, waiting until the bear was so close
thc*powdcr burnt his flesh, shot hiin
right through jhc brain aud killed hiin
instantly. Robert camped beside his
"victim that-night and carefully skinned him, but like so many'of his kind
the skin'was in poor shape, scars and
cuts, from many fights, also traces of
several, old bullet "wounds. He was
very thin and, as Robert quaintly expressed himself, mighty hard chewing.
The'-inroad of the grizzly into our
country caused much excitement
amongst thc Indian as their huge
claws .ire much coveted by the young
warriors as signs of thcir prowess in
hunting. Old Kinistino, however,

Of  what  does good  citizenship
consist?"   .In the  common acceptance .it merely implies residence in-
a- municipality, without taking- any
ivei-y. active, interest in the affairs oi
-the-'community.     -There " is   no
'"rioufeV that a man is" a .'fairiy -good,
citizen who .lives, an   honorable life
- doing   his   obvious    duty  by. bis
'.neighbors and payinghis just debts.
It would not do, perhaps,, for all of
. us to take   too -active' a part in
;pub'lie affairs for  too . many  cooks

fortunately not. cast in  the same
"mould, but,a very; vital  question
today isas-.to-hewfai- a man'is  a
.good"citizen whoitakes no  interest
whatever   in social  problems and
civiC'tnattors except so far as.;they
.directly touch .his'own interests.-.
��� -One of-the reasons why-so niany,
-..men;dislike serving-the  public.'is
" that they, get all the-kicks and only
have to'.jiidge b'y.(the';apathy.'of the
' public at he titer'they.'a re  satisfying
.'their  "constituents:.;   -Frequently

' Frequently' things-look different'..to
the.man whose nose is down to the
;grind stone and to the man. who  is
watching his efforts from a distance
Bometimes.fehe man  who is  doing
the work is .the better judge,   be-
C5*'ise he is ,iu   closer. ���. touch with
affairs,     and . knows   the inside
workings; .' .Ou    the   other hand
sometimes he is 'too, close to get. a
proper "perspective.    He may-quite
unconsciously,   be biased,   by the
officials With .whom he comes in
contact, and getinto their way of
regarding affairs,   often   a  rather
itarrow-oiie,: because of. the. fact
that, they too of necessity are con.-;
stantiy close, up to the matters ..in.

The above words were recently uttered
by a worthy boy and undoubtedly .they are often reiter
ated by many who are out of employment, or have little
or nothing to* do. To all such we say, you have home
capital, you have hands, feet, -bone, muscle, health and-are
not these capital? What more capital has God given anybody? "But if I only bad a few thousand in cash capital"
says the young man. But these are better than cash capital, for no one can take them from you, 'and with these
3'ou can earn cash. ,V - .
Our men of wealth and influence did uot start with any
cash capital. They went' to work with their, plow, the
hoe, the jack plane or axe,., and in time .their capital
brought them a rich harvest. Ah! but there's the rub;
you don't want to work. You want money on credit so
you can play the gentleman, speculate and end your career
by playing vagabond/ You want to marry a rich girl who
will support you, while you wear fine clothes, smoke
cigars, and be a gentleman of leisure,
Shame on you young man! Go to work with thc capital,
you have and you will soon make interest enough upon it
to give you as much money as you need. If you cannot
make money ou what capital you have, you could not if
you had a larger amount in cash. If }'Ou waste your_pres-
ent capital you would waste money. if 3^011 had it, So
don't stand around, a helpless fellow, waiting fqr. some,-
thing to turn up, but.go to work., -Take the -first work,
you can get to do aud do it well:''''Always- do..your best;,*
and.if you manage your capital that' God has givetij you
well, 3r6u will soon have plenty more to manage.      ,
