Sensational Arrests
"Saturday a sensation ' was-
created in town when Sheriff Eli
Wilson and Marshall Weldon ar
rested Louis Prince, Philip Prince,
Jack Slagle ahd Jack Fiannigan,"
says the Oroville Gazette. "According to the sheriff he was acting
upon requisitions forwarded from
tbe sheriff of Ferry county, and
that the men were wanted for participation in the shooting of Joseph
Wagner on or about the 30th of
April, at Ferry,,just this side of
tbe boundary from Midway. The
list of names of the men wanted
also include Ben Prince better
known as "Red" Prince, a brother
of Lovuis and Philip. The prisoners were taken to Okanagan' and
from their to Republic. Ben
Prince, who figured last week in
an exciting escapade over in Douglas county, in which he was arrest-
'ed and fined for speeding, is still at
large. According to the reports in
circulation the crime for which
these men are held was as follows:
It is alleged that the individuals
under arrest had made arrangements with Joe Wagner to deliver
them a certain quantity of liquor
at Ferry, When Wagner showed
up, according to the story, the men
considered there was more money
in taking the liquor by forc9 than
paying for it, and one of the number pushed a revolver into Wagner's stomach and ordered him to
throw up his hands. Instead of
complying Wagner knocked- up the
gun, it went off and the shot took
effect in Wagner's neck, making a
Bevere but not necessarily fatal
wound. On Friday, May 20th,
Wagner died in the Greenwood
hospital. It is only fair to state
that the coroner's jury that invest-
igared. the death-rendered a verdict
that deceased died from "failure
of the heart, caused by over exertion and worry," and the Greenwood Ledge states that "the
wound was almost healed up and
had nothing to do with his death."
It is further alleged that Wagner
made no charge daring his life
time as he proposed "to get even
with the persons responsible for his
wound in his own way," but before
dying he made a death bed state-
ment implicating the parties

MARRIED      -
-' Two popular and well known
young people in this place were
united in the holy bonds of matri-
mony.at Spokane on Friday, June
3rd, when Miss Marie Anderson,
eldest daughter of Mrs. J. P.
Anderson, of Greenwood, was
married to E. S. Lockwood, of
Jersey City. The bride was for
some years in the employ of the
Provincial Library at Victoria,
while the bridegroom is well
known in Greenwood having
been an electrician at the Mother
Lode mine some years ago.' The
newly married couple will reside
in Jersey City. The Ledge along
���with a host of friends wish them
happiness and prosperity.
Card of Thanks.
Not been able to personally see
all my Greenwood friends I desire
to take this medium of thanking
all for their great kindness and
thonghtfulness during my long
illness which- has done much to
ease my sufferings. I purpose taking a three months holiday at
Kamloops in the hope that the
change will do me good.

Baseball is to be the summer
sport in the Boundary and judging by the first game played here
the first of the week good sport
is in store for fans and players
alike. Midway came over and
defeated Greenwood by a score of
9-3. Midway has a good team,
are in good shape and put up a
first class game. The home team
is in hopes of turning the tables
after a little more practice.
(Written specially for Tbe Ledge) -
Friday, June 3rd in spite of previous weather indications turned
ont to be a glorious day, and the
school girls and boys, who labored
hard in final preparations were
well rewarded by the sight of a
great majority of tho people of this
district who turned out to patronize their Sale of Work and Bazaar.
They offered refreshments, hot
anil cold, the boys having a "bar,"
with an assortment of drinks,
while the girls offered ice-cream,
and afternoon tea. Two booths
were erected, one containing fancy
work, knick-knacks, pictures, etc.;
the other fresh-home-made candy.
When the receipts from the Bazaar
were totalled tlipy amounted to
approximately $165.
,The Concert following began
about 8 p. m. The program was
a varied one and most pleasing to
the appreciative audience^ The
solos by MrB. Birch and Mr.
Cavaye were greatly enjoyed. The"
three sketches were amusing and
particularly well acted. A chapter
from Tom Sawyer seemed to especially "please the audience., to say
nothing of a number of young ladies
���rather neglige���eating fudge.
"The Unwilling Patient" was well
acted and "No News or How the
Dog Died" showed good training.
The choruses by the school children were well sung and the irecita--,
tions by Miss Mclntosli and Edward Johnson were very well delivered. The Greenwood orchestra -
played saveraLdiffienlt.andJnfcric-,
ate selections which were well re-;
ceived and enjoyed.
The Dance concluding the evening's entertainment was made into
a patriotic ^occasion. Bush's or- "
chestra furnished the excellent
music and they were in great form,
being most obliging in responding .
to the many encores. The Masonic
Hall had been decorated suitably
with pictures of their majesties,
King George, Queen Mary, and
Edward, Prince of Wales, To
complement the patriotic scene so.

the children; for which, and tho
generosity exhibited by all attending the whole days proceedings a
hearty vote of thanks was tendered
by tbe happy boys and girls.
The sncc63B of the entertainment, bazaar and dance Is due to
the untiring efforts of V. E. Tripp
who trained the boys and girls in
their various parts and praise is
also due to Miss Mcintosh and
Miss McKee as assistants. The'
whole affair was a credit to the
scholars and teachers alike and
there is no reason why this should.,
not be made an annual event. The
proceeds will go towards purchasing athletic supplies and library

and activity of life. It is true not merely of
dividual. li. is truc in thc realm of political reform, in the preservation of
health, in thc success of any business undertaking. Thc man who is indifferent lo, neglects and sleeps on his job, cannot succeed'. Failure 11 utter
such circumstances is inevitable in the long run. \
Once again thc^farmcrs of Western Canada have seeded their acres. It
is to bc hoped that, bearing thc above adage in nfind; thcy havc used only
good clean seed, the best that could be obtained. It is to bc hoped, also,
that to thc full extent of their available equipment, and the time at their
disposal, thcy havc pursued thc best accepted methods of farming and--prc-
parcd thc seed bed iu thc most approved manner.
The growing season (at the time of-writing this article) has been all
thai could bc desired, with copious rains and cool days which give promise
of a strong rooting of thc grain so that it will be in the ticsl possible condition to withstand a dry period should such befall.
V But "eternal vigilance is thc price of liberty."    There arc many enemies
-to a growing crop iu this western country. Farmers everywhere must remain alert and vigiient to combat these on every hand. There is thc
grasshopper scourge. Governments and municipalities have devised and
outlined the best methods of fighting this pest, and those materials required
to wage thc battle havc been procured. But official bodies cannot do it all.
It remains for thc individual fanner everywhere to do.his share, to do it
promptly and thoroughly. All the precautionary measures should be taken,
and an ever watchful eye kept ou developments. It is necessary to wage
the battle against thc grasshopper, not only lo save this year's crop,.but to
insure lhc success of future crops-which lhc rapid elimination of this danger
requires. / . ��� l\   ���
Then there is the noxious weed. It takes many forms^but each and
every variety is destructive, some, of course, more destructive than others.

Terms of Reference Important to-
Canadian Interests.
As Canada, has a direct interest in
the outcome of the investigation now
being conducted by a special British
Royal Commission in thc matter of
the cattle embargo, some importance
attaches to the terms of the reference
under which the inquiry is being
made. Thc commission is composed
of Viscount Finlay (chairman), Lord
Askwith, Sir Algernon Firth, Si"
Harry Peat and Sir Arthur Shipley,
and thc reference is as follows:
"To inquire into the admission into
the United Kingdom of livestock for
���purposes other than immediate
slaughter at the ports, whether such
action would increase and cheapen
thc meat supply of thc country, and,
if so, to what extent, and whether it
was advisable, having regard to thc
vjgicccssity of protecting livestock bred
in the country from the introduction
of disease, and of restoring their numbers after the losses to which thcy
wcrc subject during thc war."���Montreal Gazette.

When Brains Are Best. ���
- British psychologists have recently
drawn up a schedule of brain efficiency, which, if it bc accurate, should
greatly-assist in placing important

8 a.m.; 104.3 at 9 a.m.; 106.6 at 10;
103.6 at 11; 98.7 at 1; 100.6 at 2; 10S.1

Addressing Letters       I
System Used By Spain Must Save
Much Time.
Is our method'of addressing an envelope, I wonder, the best one? Ia
Spain the- method adopted- is" exactly
the reverse to ours. The name of
the country to which the letter is to
be sent is written at the top of the
envelope, the name of the town next,
and on the following line the personal o"r "private address, "while on
the last line the name "of the addressee is inscribed. - I suppose the
sorter arranges his letters according
to the name of the country first,
-town next, precinct of that town last,
while thc postman and the recipient
only are concerned with the name on
,the enevelope, so that the saving of
time which this system must effect
seems to contradict the impression
that the Spanish are "inefficient." Can
there be any reason not readily apparent, which has kept other-countries
from adopting this system ?���The

years, has been passenger conductor
on the Canadian Pacific Railway and
is well and favorably known along the
line of his run between Montreal and

."Before I started on this medicine I
was in a bad way.. For years I'd had
to take my meals here, there and
everywhere and, as the result of this
irregular eating, my internal machinery got all out of working order. I
lost all desire for food and what little
I ate would form gas and bloat me
up until I could hardly breathe. I
became so-inervous I couldn't sleep
at all well at night and was often so
tired in the mornings I didn't care
whether I took my train out or not.1
I'fell off twenty-five ^pounds in weight
and became alarmed about my condition, for I had tried all sorts of medicine without getting any relief.
"Then, one day I read a statement
in the paper which decided me to give
Tanlac a thorough trial. ��� Well, I
never would have believed any medicine could do a man so much good in
such a short time. It quickly settled
my stomach and gave me such an appetite that I could eat three good
square meals a day and no longer have
any trouble with indigestion or gas
and I sleep so well at night, even
when on the road, that I think it
would take a collision to wake^me up.
I npw turn thc scales at two hundred
and ten pounds, which is ten pounds
more than I ever weighed in my life
and. feel better in every way than I
have for a very long time. Tanlac
is the best medicine I ever tried."
