.The peace and serenity of Sunday afternoon was disturbed by
the sounding of the fire, alarm
about 4 o'clock. The fire was on
Gold St. in the big white house
at the rear ot the Imperial'hotel.
The fire was soon got under control with very little damage to
the building, but had it not been
for the prompt work of the fire
brigade, a fearful conflagation
might haye ensued. The fire
was of mysterious origin.
A most enjoyable surpriseparty
was held in .the Anaconda school
house on Saturday, Aug. 20th in
honor of the Williamson, Keir
and Beattie families. Very lively
music from the.. violin, autoharp
and jiccordion was thoroughly
enjoyed by about SO or more people. After supper dancing was
again taken up. Everyone was
in good spirits which made the
evenings .pleasant one for all,
Among" other were Square dances-,
.polkas, tuxedo and other old
dances. The evening proved
very pleasant and far too short
to.tbe many dancers.
Many people are attracted by
the grand display of home products of flowers, vegetables and
minerals in Lee and Bryan's
window. The splendid assortment of flowers and vegetables
are the property of G. S. Walters,
while M. Anderson has on exhibit two large cabbage heads,
each weighing 13 lbs, and gives
a real idea of what can be grown
in this district with just a little
care. The exhibit shown by Mr.
Walters would be a credit to any
community ~ consisting-"of "ripe
tomatoes, a cucumber 22 inches
long, morning glory, snap "dragons, pansies, etc. The samples
of minerals are all taken from
mines operating in this locality
and include specimens from the

A very delightful afternoon tea
was given at the home of Mr,
and "Mrs; G. S. Walters ou Tuesday afternoon, the raison d'etre
being Mrs. J. D._MacLean, of
Victoria, who is visiting her
sister, Mrs. G. S. Walters. The
beautiful home was a veritable
bower of flowers for the occasion
all being so artistically arranged.
Mrs, MacLean wore a becoming
gown and graciously received the
guests (who numbered about
fifty) in the living room, which
was tastefully ' arranged, a firegrate adding a note of cheer. In
the hall was'golden glow in all
its sunny loveliness while on the
table in the dining room were
beautiful china and silverware.
Mrs. Taylor poured the tea while
Mrs/Thomas and Mrs. Waiters
served cake and sandwiches, No
formal invitation were sent out,
it being an impromptu and hurried affair as Mrs. MacLean is
here on a short visit and this was
an opportunity for her many
friends to meet her. In the evening a number of the younger set
gathered at the home to meet
Mrs. MacLean, when bridge,
whist, sieging and dancing

- Tourist Camp Site
Locally there may be some
alight difference of opinion concerning the advisability of a camping site which certain citizens established,on the grounds just north
of the Imperial Hotel. However
thiB may be bnt there is surprising
unanimity of appreciation expressed by those parties who have used
the site this season.
It might be a good idea to have
a register book placed in the camp
where visitors would enter their
names and offer suggestions therein. Here arexa few things that
campers might write:
"We thank the City of Greenwood for acting the Good'Samar-
atan to weary travellers. For the
good of your fair city we spent a
few dollars in your town." -
Another may write: "Lovely
campsite. This is sure a dandy
Jbandy ground. We wish to thank
you for your very convenient and
excellent campsite, which are altogether tooT scarce in Canadian
Perhaps someone will break into
verse and sing: *"~
"Kind folks of Greenwood, please
accept our thanks
For a night of refreshment which
we spent in your camp
The company was excellent.   We
had a dandy time,
So we'll sing praise of Greenwood
for quite same time."
Others again could write in the
register such things as: "Will be
glad to tell others." "Scenery
wonderful and very much enjoyed." "At this place we have the
best camping ground yet. Thanks."
etc. etc. ''
The hotels or places of business
do not lose a cent through it.
Many campers get here rather late
and tooner than get their own sup-
go-to4he.hotelB for it.. _Th.en some
who -have been on the^ road any
length of time, when they arrive at
a town^which looks good to tbem,
will stay at an hotel for a change.
Therefore, if more people are
brought here on account of the
site, the better chances of more
business. Even thongh this were
not the case and they did not get
more business, it is certain that
they do not. lose any, because a
tourist camping is out for camping
and will not put up at hotels anyway, and will only get occasional
meals at restaurants, and those not
camping will not go to the campsite.
So there you are. Look at both
sides of the question,  and if you
are fair-minded) you. _will Jsoon
admit that the campsite is a very
valuable adjunct.
University of B. C.

The Lightning Peak Trail
A new route has been discovered
between the Main Kettle river and
Lightning Peak in the northern
part of the Greenwood Mining
division. It is claimed to'be much
shorter than the present route so
that the trip between the two
points can be-made in less than a
dayf Residents of Christian Valley are anxious to have this route
inspected and if feasable to have a
trail built. -It is suggested that
the road supt.' Jas. Kerr make -a
trip to that section and go over
both routes and ascertain the best
one, so that next year the government can be asked for an appropriation for the work.
A good trail in that Bection will
greatly help the farmers and give
them a northern market for their
products. It will also open
up a rich mineral and farmrag

Life In The
Far North
Mounted Policeman Returns After
Six Years Spent in Lone Land.
In May 1915, Corporal Cornelius, of
the R.N.W.M.P., left Edmonton for
Herschel Island. He departed quietly without any flourish of trumpets.
Recently he returned to civilization
again for the first time, as silently as
he had left it. Over six years of his
life has been spent in the Arctic wilds,
four of them in the company only of
the two Eskimo murderers sentenced
in 1914 and freed by order of thc gov
ernment later. Corpl. Cornelius is a
lithe, sturdy Canadian, tanned to a
brick red by exposure to biting winter
winds and the short but fierce heat of
thc Arctic summer. Though he has
gone through experiences sufficient to
satisfy thc average man for a lifetime,
hc says but little ,and if there is one
thing lie hates above another it is a
newspaper man. Thc habit of silence
is still strong upon him, and lie is of
-the breed that prefers to do things
rather than talk of tliem.
Down thc broad bosom of the Mackenzie River, lie sailed, aboard thc
Hudson's Bay Company's 65-foot gas
schooner, the Fort McPherson, Captain Hcndrickson in charge. The
schooner carries fifty tons of freight,
in addition to its passengers and
crew,-and the captain has a trading
post on the entrance of the [Mackenzie River. Two years were passed at
Fort McPherson, where the big supplies of provision and building material wcrc disposed of.     Comfortable
��� winter quarters - were established
there, and patrols of the surrounding country were undertaken. The
two Eskimo murderers who were
talcen out by the corporal, and offered their freedom, were so much
taken with the ways of the white
man that they asked permission to
enter the service of the police, and
were both engaged, much to their delight. They rendered great service
as guides and interpreters, and the
white man's law: has never had a
better advertisement in the ��� Arctic
circle than that given to it by these
two men, tried, punished and released
by .its officials, as a warning to
others. In 1917, Corporal Cornelius
was-joined by Constable Erockic, and
thc two set out for Herschel Island,
where thcy spent two years, with
frequent patrols into-the far corners
of the uncharted wilds. Thcir next
move was along thc shores of thc
Arctic to Coronation Gulf, a dog-sled
trip of som�� 800 miles, where another two years were, passed; patrols
at Bathurst Inlet, Kent Peninsula, all
points on the south and west sides of
Victoria Island to Victoria Land and
Prince - Albert. Sound being made
during that period."    "".
The final*trip.was taken by Coronation' Gulf via. Bear Lake to Fort Norman, down ��� the river to Fort McPherson, .then north -to' Herschel
Island, back by coast' to Coronation.
Gulf.once more, another return trip
via Herschel, and "through'Fort Mc:
���Pllcrson up.- the Mackenzie- River,
home by the summer steamboat.."This
latter "trip1 was taken 'by dog-sled, a
.distance of -1,100 miles' being covered
in-rnis" manner,'aiid the total"patrols
by-'dog-sled last winter ran around
2,500-miles. .  ��� '   ��� ''.
. New .headquarters were made at'
Fort- Epworth, ' the -patrol, accompanied .by .Staff-Sergeant. Clay, establishing this"' post, thc two Eskimos,
Ululsuk and Sinnisuak,- accompanying
them.     The party lived in-snow'huts
- for .the greater part of t,hi.. time, and
subsisted on the simple diet    of ��� the
- Wilds, eked' out by 'such.- rations: as

Pacific Ocean Commerce
In Future Years Will Exceed Trade
of Atlantic.
Robert Dollar, great captain of industry on the Pacific coast, states
that before many years the Pacific
ocean will be the centre of thc
world's commerce and that commerce
on those vast waters will greatly exceed the trade of the Atlantic.
P. A. O. Farrell, Canadian journalist, -writing in the Wall Street Journal with reference to the commerce
of the Pacific says:
"Standing amid the tall fir and
venerable cedars of Vancouver's
noble park, a superb peninsula overlooking the harbor's mouth, I cannot
help musing at the vicissitudes of
nations and empires. Here I havc an
opportunity, to watch thc ever swelling tide of commerce entering and
leaving Vancouver harbor. That
commerce between Vancouver and
Europe and Australia and thc Orient
is greater today than was' the commerce of New York when I first sailed over thc waters of thc Atlantic.
One of those noble Canadian Pacific
ships, thc Empress of Russia or the
Empress of Asia, has a passenger
and calgo capacity tenfold that of
thc Cunard and White Star ships I
used to watcli ploughing wild seas in
my boyhood days, and those giant
ships, linking the Orient and Australia with Vancouver, rc-frcightcd
to capacity and with full passenger
lists. Indeed, no matter how fast thc
Canadian Pacific can provide new
ships for its Oriental trade the demand keeps ahead of the supply. It
is the China trade that is abounding.
China has awakened from the torpor
of ages, and American capital, enterprise and technical skill are., enabling her to achieve . an industrial
A Church Skyscraper
Chicago Is Putting Up Twenty-Two
Story Building.
New York's Trinity has long been
an example of how a church can be
dwarfed by skyscrapers, but Chicago
in its proposed Methodist "cathedral,"
is evidently, about to show how a
church can be a skyscraper. A lofty
steeple like Salisbury's will surmount
a twenty-one' storey business building
with the utility of the modern office
building. Thc street level will be occupied by tlie church and stores,
part of the next floor will form a
balcony, and church headquarters and
business offices will take up the rest
of the building. One will be able to
enter thc church at one door and
the offices at another. However, as
every one knows, there is next to
nothing new under the sun. European cluirchcs"havc for centuries had
shops built into them; and a certain
church in Yorkshire, England, had a
butcher's shop occupying a part of
the west end.���From the Christian

The Art of Walking
Exercise Develops Our Muscles and
Stimulates Thought.
Will our legs fall so much into disuse that after a time they will become
like the appendix which has lost its
function and is only the cause of a
fashionable operation? Such a question is indicated in a recent editorial
in Leslie's Weekly, which reads:
Dr. John H. Finlcy, has come homc
from Europe with a fresh enthusiasm
for the forgotten art and exercise for
walking. Having devoted his life
hitherto to teaching thc young idea
how to shoot, he would now teach
it how to march, thereby revising the
ordinary sequence, of infantry training, but in an excellent cause. \   '
Walking develops our muscles, .aids
digestion;- stimulates thought, soothes
and rests the nerves. It is a splendid-specific for a great deal that avails
us" socially and politically. -Here :in
America wc do not begin-to* use'our
legs enough. We'put too much store
by'articial means' of'locomotion/and
consider, as evidence of superiority
thc fact that actually and relatively
we have, more miles of railway/ more
street -cars,, more automobiles than
any other people. . But as Emerson
says, "For everything that 'is ��� given
something is taken." Society acquires
new arts and -loses old instincts." .'
. Already, literally,' wc have- become,
a nation of tehderfcet,-with all that
this .implies. . If Dr. Finlay can persuade us that.legs are made for' use
as" well ."as. for slfo.w, lie'will have
performed- a great service, for', his
country.���St.  Petersburg .-Times.    ������'������

Traveller Tells of Flowers and Fruit
Near Fort Norman,
"The country about Fort Norman
and farther north is a veritable garden of luxuriant flowers. Never in
my life, even in Florida and the South
have I seen so many wild roses as
about Fort. Norman. That was the
biggest surprise of all. I went as far
as a. degree and a half, within the
Arctic Circle and found wild flowers
very plentiful. There were, also
plenty bf wild berries in different localities. What's more, you don't escape the summer heat by going north
I never felt it so hot, even in Florida
as it was at Fort Norman the other
day. '
"People do not realize the immensity of the north country. On the trip
north, I travelled a distance equivalent to,thc width of the Atlantic. For
five %yccks I slept, all but one night,
on the water.and at that the boat
was travelling north with.thc current.
It took about twice as long to return
as to go in, having to make headway
against the current on the return trip.
The Mackenzie flows toward thc Arctic and the. people up there speak of
"down north" and "up south."���Oil

Villagers   In  Belgium   Thought War
Had Come Again.
Tlu: inhabitants of Langcmarck,
Clerckem, Staden, Wouinoi and other
villages bounding thc forest of Hout-
hulst, were siartled ont of thcir sleep
one night jrcccntly by a furious cannonading which brought them scurrying out of their more or less repaired
dwellings and in search of dug-outs,
as thcy used to do during "the four
terrible years," as thcy were called in
West Flanders.
The peasants around thc forest
have become experts in artillery, and
the barrage that night, thcy say, was
something more terrific than they had
ever heard during the war. First
there came volleys of thc familiar
German seventy-sevens, Austrian
eighty-eights,1 to which' there w'ould
reply the rapid staccato of French
seventy-fives. The forest of Hout-
hulst was 'ablaze and owing to the
protracted drought fire was spreading with furious rapidity.
' TheA cavalry arrived on the. scene.
They were Belgians from this battered town, come to fight the forest fire.
"Has it come-again, the war, sir?"
a trembling old woman asked of the
captain. v
Suddenly the cry- was heard, "Gas,"
and there was a stampede. Thc soldiers began to distribute gas masks
and throughout the night, peasants,
and soldiers, armed with spades,
shovels 'and picks dug a trench that
the fire, might Se stopped before it
reached the huge ammunition dumps
left bj' German and allied troops in
thc centre of the forest, millions of
shells of all kinds, almost enough it
was said, "to blow west Flanders into
thc North S.ea." '.
-By morning thc fighters had .the
upper . .hand On the fire whicirwas
vanquished about "100 yards, from one
of the' largest .dumps,- but-.mcariwhilc
abfftit 10,000,000 shells of all sorts exploded. ' Thcy.were in,four separate
dumps'.and of four square miles of
the forest where they had been located nothing remains but a few trees
like bare spars swaying'in the .wind.'
A?the sun arose old peasants could
bc seen going to their fields .for'the
harvest-as.if nothing, had happened.   .

When the doctor says,, "Less meat
and more fish and milk and vegetables," what is'the .housewife to do
who lives miles from-even the smallest stream-boasting fish?. -Prcserve'd
fish is thc answer. /
Among the preserved fishes-we find
smoked, salted, pickled and canned
fish. And fish in these various forms
provides delightful variety in the diet.
Smoked fish is sometimes freshened
by soaking in cold water or par-boiling.     This is also done with salt fish.
Codfish is one of the staples when it
comes to salt fish. After it is soaked or par-boiled, it may bc made into
a number of delectable dishes.
For instance, how about somc codfish balls? Mix two cups of freshened salt codfish with one cup of chop-
'ped or mashed potato. Add a little
grated onion for flavor, somc pepper,
and a little melted butler. Form
into balls. Roll into beaten-egg and
then into fine crumbs. Fry in deep
fat until a golden brown. Drain on
soft paper and serve on a hot dish
garished with parsley or watercress.
Fish hash is good for a change.
Use equal parts of fish and chopped
cooked potato. Add a little onion,
and a little chopped green pepper
if bn hand. "-Brown in hot fat on the
trying pan until one side* is delicately
browned, then fold like an omelet.-
Freshened salt fish may*, be
creamed and served on toast, as is
fresh, fish. . To prepare this, make
a white sauce by rubbing- together
two level tablespoons each of butter,
and flour. Add one-half pint of rich
milk. Cook stirring until thc sauce
boils. Add the cup of fish and the
chopped whites of two hard-cooked
eggs. ..Pour over .slices of toast.
Press the yolks of the hard-cooked
eggs through a strainer and let them
fall on the creamed fish like "golden-
���Many of tbe commercial; canners are
lining thc cans in which thcy pack fish
with parchment paper, so that thc
old objections to canned fish have
been practically removed." Not only
is fresh fish packed in cans, but even
folks far from thc sea may enjoy all
the delights of thc various forms of
shell fish.
That any casrncd food may be at its-
best, it is - necessary to remove the
contents of the can*' to a china plate
and allow thc food to air for a couple
of hours. -Rinsing canned lobster
and'crab with, cold water helps a bit.
In. fact, between the airing and thc
rinsing it is difficult "to tell when the
shell fish is put into.a-salad or other
made'dislij that it is a canned product.
Suppose, some warm evening, when
the man of the house is a bit out of
sorts, you-surprisc him with a crisp,
cold lobster or crab salad.. -Chill the
plate you serve- it on and have the
salad-on ice for &n hour or so before
serving: . - . '      ':.-', "-.'"..
L^sc equal.parts of diced celery and

THE     LEDGE,     GREENWOOD,     B.     C
London.���"If thc alliance with Japan could bc merged into a greater
understanding with Japan and the
United States on all the problcmsV>f
thc Pacific, that would be a great
event and it would be a guarantee for
thc peace of thc world." Thus spake
David Lloyd Gcorg'e, the British
prime minister before thc House of
Commons today before outlining thc
work of the-recent conference of thc
imperial premiers.
The^ Premier was dealing specifically with thc Anglo-Japanese alliance
at thc time and explaining how thc
conference had unanimously recognized that Japan loyally had carried out
Uicr obligations to Great Britain, during thc war in letter and spirit. He
saw no reason wjiy it should bc impossible to remember obligations to
Japan and at thc same time preserve
a spirit of fraternity with thc United
The Premier defended thc action
of General Smuts, the South African
premier, with regard to Ireland. He
said General Smuts had acted perfectly straightforward and honoiably,
and that everything hc had done was
done with thc full assent of the King
and  ministry.
"When you come to thc question of
renewal of the Anglo-Japanese alliance," said Mr. Lloyd George, "you
must take into account how it' has
operated. There was a-real test in
the late war. No man who watched
what happened-- could come t'o any
other conclusion than thatj it .'was
loyally and faithfully interpreted arid
carried out by our Japanese ally. The
Pacific was being raided- by fast
German cruisers; our ships were being sunk. Wc had to depend on thc
help of Australia and New Zealand."
The Premier proceeded to describe
how Great Britain's immense fleet
was strained to the very last ship,
new and old, in the gigantic operations of -protecting Great Britain's
own shores in. the North Sea, the
North Atlantic and the Mediterranean.
"In the immense Pacific Ocean and
in the Southern Atlantic," Mr. Lloyd
George continued, "how were   we .to
guarantee a half million colonial and
a million Indian troops crossing
millions of miles of sea against the
raiders? We could not have done it
but for they fact that -our Japanese
ally came to our aid. The Australian and New Zealand premiers admitted it. They said: 'We would
not'-have sent out our troops without
thc guarantee.' And at thc beginning of thc war wc certainly could
nofhavc given thc guarantee but for
the fact that thc Japanese fleet came
there .to assist us in chasing thc
"It was invaluable to us; it was one
of thc turning factors in thc war.
Thcy loyally and faithfully to thc
letter carried out their obligations
and carried them out in thc spirit.
Is it to bc suggested that wc now
turn around and say to them 'thank
you. You stood by us in trouble,
but wc don't need you any longer,
so goodby?' Would anybody'behave
like that in business? The British
'Empire must- behave like gentlemen.
When you are dealing with a country
that stdod well by you in trouble,
and it is suggested that you should
bring thc alliance to an end when
the trouble is over, I say that would
not be becoming to thc British Empire."
"'I do not belicveJhcrc is a country
in the world, "whether it, likes thc
Japanese alliance or not, that would
think anything better of thc British
if we had broken off thc alliance.
They* might appear glad for thc
moment, but \ in their hearts they
would despise usj" That does not
mean that we are to continue an
alliance of any kind on-any point
against anyone else, and certainly
not against the United States. It is
a cardinal principle bf British-policy,
and it must bc, that wc should act in
as" complete accord with thc United
States as any two countries can. I
do nob know of any country in thc
world with which it is more important that wc should act in concert than
with the United States. But I do
not see why it is impossible to remember' our obligations to Japan and
at thc same time present a-spirft of
fraternity with the United States.

British Living
Costs Have Increased
West Needs More Farmers
Little Growth in the Rural Population
of the West.
As the United States becomes increasingly dependent on imported
foods the demand on Canadian farmers will grow more serious. Fordney
Tariffs may come and Fordney Tariffs
may go but the American food supply
will, for many decades, havc to bc
drawn from us.
Yet we find little growth in rural
population in our west. Taking Canada as a whole wc have not many
more farmers .today than we had five
years' ago. The demand for food
rises "and our ability to supply it falls.
Already the cost of living tends to
bc higher in Canada than in the United States by a few ecu Is per week per
family. The explanation lies in the,
fact'that our remaining food growers
get American dollars instead of Canadian dollars for their goods. It pays
them to ship south whether our0cities
arc fed or riot, and no one can deny
thcir right to*do so.
But what is essential, both from the
food growers and the food consumers
standpoint is this: Wc MUST increase the number of Canadian farmers and thc acreage' of their farms.
It means more food production to
stabilize prices for the'consumer. It
means more population to share with
the present producers the high cost
of taxes, railway service, government,
For both consumer and producer's
sake Canada requires more farming
population. To get that wc must
start to bring in more immigrants-
new���today���at once.
Farm Produce Is Very High Owing
To Drought-
London.���The Labor Gazette indicates that the cost of'-living in England, based on comparisons of the
figures of last month with those of
other months and other years is on
thc upgrade. There was an average
level of 122 per cent, above pre-war
prices during July. In -June, the
average was 119 above pre-war prices.
The increase is due chiefly to increased cost of farm produce consequent upon the drought. Rents havc
increased in conformity with the
Rents Acts. Thc prices of meat and
clothing havc generally decreased.

Says British Coal Strike

London.���Herbert Smith, acting
president of thc Miner's Federation,
said some frank things at thc annual
meeting of the federation at Llandudno, concerning thc blunders made
in the recent coal strike.       *
Owing to the' economic position of
thc coal trade during the war, he
said, "the sense of the power and

of workmen had not been altogether
healthy, and gave many men an
exaggerated opinion of their power."

Warning For Irish Exbremists
Who Oppose Britain's Offer
London.���London newspapers even
those that have most warmly supported Irish aspirations views with considerable regret the statements made
by Eamonn dc Valera at thc recent
meeting of the Irish_ republican parliament. There was however' reluctance to regard his speech as expressing Ireland's last word and some edi- '
torials declared confidently that if the -
issue was placed before the Irish people. tlve British tcrms of settlement
would bc accepted. Assertions were
made on the strength- of Dublin advices that the Irish having tasted
peace since the establishment of the
truce would never consent to a return ,
to hostilities and that indeed few
Irishmen believed there was any pro-
bability���of a'resumption ofswarfarc.
Thc "Daily Mail said the Catholic
clergy of Ireland were using their
utmost influence in favor of acceptance and it Expressed belief that the
"'vast proportion" of thc members or
thc Dail Eireann wcrc determined to -
accept the British terms.
The London Times took occasion to
warn thc extremists who opposed
acceptance that Great Britain's mind
is finally made up and nothing can,

with 'the dramatic tone of thc British
Government in thc pursuit of peace.
They perceive if some Irishmen do
not, what an immense moral sacrifice "
the Government has made rather than

Nearly all the young people of
this generation have a passion
for peanuts and they think it
right at all times lo gratify this
passion. It costs every community a great deal of money each
year to buy peanuts^for its young
folks. These nuts have fattening properties aud are valuable
as food, but they are too expensive. They are not, grown in
this country, but import them
from" the United States, and
thereby increase the rate of exchange. In some ill-mannered
neighborhoods these nuts are
eaten- in -the - parlors,- and the
shells scattered over the rugs and1,
floors.. People .of this district
know better th an to do this: crude
thing, but insteadV scatter' the
shells . over  ; the   sidewalks- and
leave them on the., floors of halls,
and. theatres;-V  V.       '. ;"../"
