Mr, and Mrs. Snell successfully

kinds of prosperity in their new
venture, ' '
It is interesting to watch the
harvesting of 250 tons of hay on
Floyd Bros, ranch near Greenwood. Their hay crop this year
is an average yield, for even in
dry seasons, with their splendid
system of irrigation they always
have a good crop, This year
they have added newv farm machinery including a side rake and
hay loader. The.side rake puts
the hay into wind-rows so that
the loader when attached to a
wagon can pick the hay up. This
machine is a great labor saver,
dispenses with two men and besides the hay can J?e harvested
much quicker. Both machines are
manufactured by the Massey-
Harris Co. of which T. M. Galley
is the district agent.

In answer to so many little
prayers and hopes and wishes,
Wednesday, Aug. 1st dawned fair,
bright and Broiling.
If "Old King Sol" could have
known just how many little people
opened their eyes and smiled yesterday morning when they saw
what a beautiful day he had presented as his Community Picnic
gift, he must have felt a very
ruddy glow in his warm old heart.
Morning was spent in great anticipation, and about 1 o'clock
the children and their parents and
friends .commenced to wend their
way to the school playgrounds
and later to the swimming hole.
Sports of all kinds, .land and
water, were the order of the afternoon and provided enjoyment for
everyone, participants and onlookers. The variety and number and
the way they were bandied reflect
great credit npon those in charge.
Towards the close of the afternoon the weather seemed somewhat undecided but even that did
not prevent the children from having a glorious day. After" fehe
sportB the young and grown ups"
Went to the natural picnic grounds
near the C. P. R. Depot, and there
under the shady trees, along fehe
creek bank the picnickers partook
of supper. The crowd was big
enough and happy enough to secure
the maximum of enjoyment oufeVof
this popular part of the proceedings.
The ladies who capably handled
the refreshments bad all they
could do to keep the many hungry
mouths full and that everybody
had abundance to eat ia due to fehe
able effortB of the ladies.

Crop Report
In renewing her subscription
to The Ledge, Mrs. I. Skelton
says that she looks forward every
week for the news. There is
Eothing new or startling around
Danville except the crops are out
of sight, super abundant would be
the proper way of expressing it.
Below will be found, a brief
synopsis of telegraphs reports re- '
ceived at the Head Office of fehe
Bank of Montreal from its branches.
The branch managers have complete and intimate knowledge of
each local situation and are in close
touch with crop conditions , in - all
sections of the districts mentioned.
GENERAL
Satisfactory conditions continue
in fehe Prairie Provinces and prospects indicate a good all round
crop. Damage from hail and pests
is unimportant in aggregate. Prospects in the other Provinces, with
the exception of New Brunswick,
which has suffered from drought,
continue satisfactory.
BRITISH  COLUMBIA" ���
Weather conditions continue
favorable. First crop of hay of
good quality gathered. Grain cafe-
ting commenced; crop above ever-
age�� In Kamloops \j3i_8tricfe _gram
more than double average, but rain
now needed. Okanagan apples
heavy crop, showing above normal
as to size, ��� Early varieties now
moving. Small fruits, roots and
potatoes slighily below average.
Prospects for later varieties of
small fruits improving. Pasture
abundant.
Jackie Coogan to
Be Seen in "My Boy"
Jackie Coogan, the little star
who has won the hearts of millions
of Americans, has'-made another
picture, which will be seen at fehe
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday,
August 4th, It is "My Boy" and
it is by far the best thing this little
actor has ever done.
The story is gripping effective,
and contains both humor and
pathos. Jackie plays the part of
an immigrant orphan, who, although only "six years of age, is
faced with the necessity of making
his own living.- His start in the
game of life is effectively consum-
matrd through bis clever brain
work, and it is not long before
good fortune smiles upon him.   '

Wireless Still
In Its Infancy
New System Bringing Wireless Within
Reach of All
Another great step in iho development of wireless telegraphic transmission has been realized.
A new system of low cost transmission has been discovered, which'
���will pu-t wireless communications ultimately within the reach of all.
Senator Marconi has amplified the
cabled statement concerning this
new system by giving further details
of the two m. nths experimental
cruise from which he and his staff
have just returned.
"The results have been very satisfactory," lie said, "and they constitute
a great progressive step in wireless
telegraphy.
"We have transmitted message^ up
to a distance of 2,250 miles, not only
with a very much smaller amount of
energy and power, but faster and more
cheaply than with the ordinary system of long-distance wireless.
"There is a great increase, in efficiency, and cost i.s much reduced.
When this system is adopted il. will
mean that a power station for longdistance work can be erected at a
much less cost. 1 have telegraphed
on this system from Cape Verde Islands, off the African coast, to Marconi House, and 1 wanted to try from
Brazil, but time prevented it.
"To send this message clearly nnd
"more rapidly over those 2,250 miles
took less power than- a message from
London to Paris by the ordinary methods. In fact, it was only a small
fraction of the power required.
"It Is done by the utilization of
waves that have not been used before,
and the production of them efficiently.
The production of these waves could
not have been achieved at all 20 years
ago when I started on wireless research. The experiments have resulted in a greater Knowledge of the
science of wireless.
"That In itslf is a great satisfaction
to me. The fascinating thing about
this science is that you neverV know-
where you are, in the sense that something fresh is likely to turn up in research which shows you how to do
things better.
"That is why I say wireless is in its
infancy, though, of course, finality
will be eventually be reached. We
are a long way from that stage."
Senator Marconi declared:
That the long-distance wireless of
the future would be sent from stations
built at comparatively small cost;
That, given the necessary mechanical element, messages could be sent
clearly at seven times the present
speed, and ihat press and public would
ultimately have the benefit of-much"
cheaper commercial charges.'   '���' ���
In regard to;long-distance directive
wireless,'progrcss-has'also^ been-made':-'
Successful' directive"'-"messages .liave
been sent bvera distance .of-1.00 .miles,
��nd it wiil. soon be, possible to send

year to reside in Moscow. Being
prevented by the censorship in force
from sending the true facts outside
of Russia, Mr. Spewack has written
his account while fresh in his memory upon arriving at Riga. Prom
there he explains how the "much-
quoted, but little known, Soviet press
constitutes one of ihe most important
phases of Russian lif.e"
He can vouch with intimacy for
that about which he writes. "For a
year," he writes, "1 have read the
leading Soviet newspapers. I know
their editors and reporters. 1 have
spent many even.'ngs in the office of
the Moscow Pra'vda, prize and pride
of Communistic journalism."
"But,, every newspaper in Russia is
the organ of tlie government. Every
newspaper editor is hound by the
discipline of the Communist party.
No pretence, is made at presenting
news. The function of fhe newspaper is to create public opinion which
will1 favor what the government favors."
''Consequently; every ''editorial is a
government pronunciamento, every
story, a government, interpretation.
News is distorted, faked ad colored
as no subservient press anywhere
else could attempt." 7-. . So "the
man in the street in Russia has no opportunity of judging events in or out
of Russia except as the Soviet government wishes him to judge them."
News as such does not -exist.
"Take Lenin's illness, certainly the
biggest story in Russia. "��� For months
every Communist in Russia knew Lenin was ill. ' But you did not find a
word of it in the newspapers. Then
the council of people's commissaries
held a meeting. Somehow the rumor
had leaked out, and oflicial silence led
the rumor-mongers to believe Lenin
was already dead,
"The council obtained a carefully
pruned bulletin from the physicians
and ordered the newspapers - to Sprint
it without comment. From then on
every morning the newspapers car-
rid a box giving the temperature,
pulse and general condition of the
patient. Then a brief announcement
was'made that his condition had improved to the extent, where bulletins
were no longer necessary. 7
"After   Lenin's   second   stroke the
council decided if would'   not -��do   to
worry    the    masses' with the story.
Every, newspaper received  strict  orders not to carry it.    ,One of Lenin's
physicians told me there 7 was   little
chance   .of ' recovery.    T 'managed to
send the hews out.- =;',-   -.,     .'. '���-���/���_��� 7
. ."Immediately"   after  .this" the .ban
was' lifted:, .. Once more" the ' cryptic
bulletin appeared.Wit still flare's- in-
termittently,-.a".set of figures-meaning,
nothing to the .average/mind.... -.;.'..

Such was the ."orderqf'the. council."
-Mr. Spewack. writes that one. .ofthe- favorite .tricks . of. Soviet.- -newspapers Is printing, .a; fake, letter from
a: mythical individual -demanding, an
act contemplated^ byvihe government.
As he explains:---'Theh other- letters,

Several one-inch holes should be
bored in the side walls of the inner
box and covered with fine screen. In
a shady place dig a hole-the exact
size of the outer box- and floor it with
several inches of gravel. Place the
box therein with the top flush with the
surface of the ground and the gravel
forming the bottom. Every morning
pour on the gravel a pailful of fresh,
cold water and the icebox is iced for
the day. A larger box would require
more water.
This 'box has kept milk sweet two
days during the warmest weather.
The evaporation keeps the tempera-
lure low. o
The above is,not only useful where
one does not have an icebox, but is
excellent to take care of the overflow
from that always congested receptacle.
It would be exceptionally good on a
farm where there is a great deal of
milk and butter to be taken care of.
Making Pets of Fish
Zurich Doctor Has Fish Eating Out of
-His Hand
Is it possible to tame fishes in the
same way as we do other creatures
that become our pets? The answer
is, "Yes."
Dr. Fastenrath, of Zurich, has succeeded in taming fish ln the Lake of
Lugano to such an extent that they
eat out of his hand and allow them-
es,lves to be taken up and caressed.
For six months the doctor repeatedly stood in the lake up to his neckin
water, and holding a piece of bread in
each hand. At the end of a couple
of months the fish^came up and nibbled at the bread and eventually became quite friendly.
Upon several occasions Dr. .Fastenrath let a white'-gcreen down into the
water, and against this background, by
means of a special eamera, he took
some curious photographs of his finny-
pets.

Strange Destruction Of Church

Literal Report
Strange was the destruction of a
little house of worship north of Hudson Bay, as once reported by the former bishop of the diocese.
. He had attended a Synod of the
Canadian Church -at Winnipeg, and
there had" seen a. missionary bishop
who- had been six weeks, on the way,
having come most of the distance in a
canoe.'.' The missionary bishop reported "gravely that.'the diocese of a
brother bishop had "gone to the" dogs."

said that'the-Eskimos' in.the diocese

Coming' Of
Wireless Age
May  Direct Path  of  Everything  Moving on Surface of the Earth
Under the heading, "Coming of the
Wireless Age," a British scientist contributes a striking article to a London
newspaper, in which he predicts .that
wireless will be used in the near future for .directing ships at sea, train
and trolley service, traffic control on
the road, fleets of battleships arid aircraft. "It will be possible," he says,
"to direct the path of everything moving on. the surface of the earth, not
even excepting\-human beings, by
means of wireless."
The Initial step in harnessing this
potent and little-known force, was
the establishment some weeks ago of
a wireless lighthouse on Inchkeith Island, in the Firth of Forth. XBy
means of this 4'lighthouse," ships can
be directed through the dangerous
channels "of the^Firth by wireless; so
that there is no possibility of their
running ashore or being wrecked even
on the darkest night or in the densest
fogs.       , ��� '"   ��     '
Steps are being taken, in conjunction with the British Board^of Trade
and the meteorological office, to internationalize wireless direction of ships
at sea. At the present moment there
Is lying hi the Port of London a ship
that has been specially fitted with
powerful wireless deceiving sets to
give demonstrations of this new
method of navigation in, all the principal ports of the world. ;
Setting out from London, this^ missionary ship will sail for China,- via
the Mediterranean/Indian Ocean and
the Straits, and: thence on _,to North
and South America, and back across
the Atlantic to . Europe and South
Africa, giving demonstrations at every
Wg port en route. .
. The most ambitious effort, however, will be a cross-Atlantic " aeroplane flight which is to-be made late
<in" the summer: 7 The machine will
carry : both ��� pilot and ' observer,.- but
their'.attentions"' will be- confined , to
the actual flying side.' ' 7 . XX V -. ''-.."-
��� Setting out from Newfoundland, for
the first"-600 -.'miles of Its flight "the
awopl'ane will be elirected.by the Glace
Bay .Wireless Station. ��� \ Then it "will
bo picked ,.up'and, navigated . by a
wireless "lightship," cruising In", mid-
oceah; to a point, where control will be
transmitted to"Qngar,"-the- big-operating station-in.-this country. - - ' -. 7

Sightless Animal  Is, Made to See
Viennese Scientist   -
If reports are true, Dr. Paul Kam-
merer, the famous Viennese scientist,
has.succeeded, not in restoring sight,
but in creating eyes where no eyes
were before. In a lecture before the
Cambridge University Natural History
Society he claim 3d that he had developed eyes in the proteus; a small
newt-like creature that is normally
sightless. '
The proteus is found in the waters
of underground caves, notably in Kentucky, where no light can penetrate.
Its entire existejo.ee is spent in dark
ness, and scientists,have argued that
if it ever possessed vision, this must
have been lost thousands of years ago.
Dr. TKarnmerer stated that he' took
the proteus���a sickly white-hued creature with no outer vestige of an eye���
from its dark environment, and placed.
it in the daylight. But the effe'et ot
ordinary daylight merely- caused a
dark pigment to form. on the skin
which destroyed all chances of optic
development. Thereupon, he secured
a young proteus and exposed it to a
red light for five years. -     -���-
"The water," he stated, "in which It
live.d was ' continually illuminated."
Ordinary-re"d light develops the dormant eyes, causes it to grow eighteen
times its original size, and makes it
penetrate the skin under which it was
previously hidden."
The blind porteus, with a blind ancestry of a thousand years behind It,
came to see, and Its body color changed from a forced rhubarb appearance
to a respectable dark hue. ^
The_doctor appears to think -there
are many hidden things, even in human beings, that may be brought to
the surface by suitable illumination.
Volcanoes In Britain
Many. Thousands of Years Since They
Were Active Say Geologists ^
"The recent performances of Mount
Etna have set scientific people specu-.
Jating about the volcanoes which, they
declare, certainly existed at some-remote time in the British Isles. They
even go so far as to say that, at one
time Dartmoor must have been a volcano, declaring that its "form suggests
a breaking through'and spreading out
of the granite. They do not, however,
say how long ago this was, but content themselves with3 the statement
that it, must have been a very early
volcano���and when a geologist talks*
like that you know, that he means a
pei'iod almost incredibly remote. More
recent are said to be four volcanoes

Mystery of the Heavens
Inventors  Spent  Much  Time  On   Instruments to  Measure Sun and
���'��� ' '*��� ������' 'Stars   '   ���'-
Professor II. 7 Turner, iru a lecture
delivered at the. Royal Institute, said
that we couldV make7 a 'soup-plate
seem the same size as tlie sun pivthe
moon by putting it at a suitable'distance from'-the eye.
"The subject of his lecture wasy"
"The Size of a Star," * and "he told
his audience how ingenious world as-
tronomers had been in inventing accurate methods of measurements..
"You will have, noticed that the sun
and the moon seem to be the same.
size, bufthe. sun - is 400 times larger
than the moon. ���Now, even if we
know the distance of the stars from
the earth, they seeih to be of no size
at all, even in the biggest telescopes."
It looked as if it were not possible to know the size of, the ,stars
until Michelson.��the American, showed how. to.-adapt a-small-telescope to
a system.of mirrors. ':'
In that' way the first star, Alpha, in
'*{ the constellation of Orion, was measured and found to be 400 times as
large as the sun, .   It was hoped to
measure a smaller star in the future.

London.���A dispatch to the Daily-
Mail from Duesseldorf says the questions of food and wages are growing
acute. Food supplies are slowly decreasing, and only a few shopkeepers
kepi open all day. Anxious crowds
' surrounded the banks and exchange
' offices..   -
The' dispatch adds that   the-  Ruhr
outwardly is calm,- but   that   underneath disquieting symptoms are 'discernible.     The people are-sick of be-
. ing coerced and would like to end the
situation, but will not yield.
Passive resistance has lost a certain number of supporters, but it still
remains a very definite obstacle to
peace. The correspondents say that
resistance-will end in about three
months, "when the people are faced
-with the approaching winter without
coal or work, and perhaps foodless.".

Message Of Good Will
Is Brought To Canada;
By President Harding
Beaten By Turkey
turkey    Wins    War-Against    Allies
Which She Began in 1914
New Tork���Commenting on the Lausanne treaty, the Times says lhat on
the principle that peace, is better than
war one can be glad that the Lausanne negotiations have ended in the
signing of ji treaty, but that is about,
the only occasion for rejoicing.
The treaty-writes into history the
fact that the great powers^" were
beaten by the s Turks because of
their own moral and intellectual
shortcomings, declares the Times, adding that, while the Allies Avere beaten, the Greeks and Armenians will
have to pay the bill. "Nevertheless
since the powers entred into a Near
East arrangement^s-hich really settles
nothing, they will have to pay their
share in due lime," the paper asserts.
Thc Morning World declares that
"fine promises of -humanitarian obligations have again yielded lo political necessities," and the Turks unaided have again won a victory for
iheir nationalism whicli the Central
Powers in a military alliance could
not win for their armies.
_, The World adds: "It is fitting that
salvos in Constantinople should celebrate the signing at Lausanne and the
news that in 1923 Turkey has won a
vtar against the Allies which she.began ln lOl-l-;."     -    .

Vancouver!���More than 40,000 persons heard President Warren "s. Hard-"'
ing of the Uinted States, deliver a
message, of warm friendship and admiration for Canada. Realizing the
significance of the occasion���the first
time a holder of his high office- has
visited Canada���the reception accorded him along the-line of march and at
Stanley Park, where the address"swas
delivered, was most impressive in en-'
thusiasm. -
Th President himself frankly admitted thai the welcome far exceeded
expectations of himself an<J his party.
The manifestations of welcome were
continuous, beginning when the naval
transport Henderson, bearing the
President and his party from Alaska,
steamed into Burrard Inlet and received froni the British light cruiser,
Curlew, a salute of 21 guns, and
continuing until 9.30 o'clock when, after attending a state dinner given by
the Governments of the Dominion and
of the province of British Columbia,'
Mr. Harding retuvried to the Henderson for the overnight voyage to
Seattle; It was a welcome bespeaking friendship and cordiality, not'.
alone for the man himself, but for_the
great nation he represented.
Declaring that the traditional friendship existing between Canada and the
United^ States presents an excellent
example to other parts of the world,
the President said a significant symp-
tch of the growing mutuality of.the'
two countries appeared in the fact
that a voluntary exchange of residents, wholly free from restrictions,
has been going on. "Our natural
and industrial exigencies have made
it necessary for us, greatly to our regret, tdv limit^immigration," he said,
"but there is'no quota for Canada.
We gladly welcome all your sturdy,
steady stock who care to come, as a
strengthening ingredient and .,influ-
ence."
On the historic moment when���the"
President set^foot on Canadian soil
the first., gun of the 21-guri artillery
sounded. Escorted by Gen. Victor
Odium, and the naval officers and
members of the. United States. Cabinet, the President, inspected the
guard of honor, which, on his arrival,
presented arms ' while the band
struck up "The Star Spangled Banner." '    v"
Then the President was escorted
back to where Dominion, Provincial
and civic authorities presented official addresses of welcome, expressing keen appreciation of the more-
than century of-''peace between the
two nations, a' lteon desire for promo-'
tion-of still more-friendly trade relations and admiration for the nation itself and "genuine 'cordiality for the
men representing tliat nation.

Judging by the harmony evi-

No important announcements of
policy were made by the Premier,
bat he strengthened the Bupport of
his followers by the Btrong speech
which he made, a speech clearly
showing that the administration
was functioning efficiently, despite
the barrage of adverse criticism
hurled at the government by Mr.
Bowser and his supporters.
Another speaker, M. A. MacDonald, K.C., president of tbe
Provincial Liberal Association,
maintained that tbe record of the
present government was the most
striking of any administration the
province has had.
Hon. J. H. King, Federal minister ot public works, assured the
gathering that British Columbia's
interests were being well cared for
at Ottawa. He predicted a remarkable future for the western
province.

westward moving business between

by the. Foreign Department of the
Dominion Express Company recently. This reduction on westbound
shipments follows a similar cut on
shipments from Europe to Canada
made a little while ago, and amounts
to a reduction of 'approximately
twenty per cent, on the trans-ocean
trip. The rates came into effect on
July 9 between all points in Canada
and Europe.

Consider the Crow's Nest itself." The name brings before some of us a.
schedule of railway-rates; to others, .a series of coal mine's. These-are deriv-'
ative impressions. The original Crow's Nest is. a mountain rising to 9,000.
feet and more above" sea-level and visible for many miles. The rock-peak, a"
one looks from the foothills, is set like a fuzzy, round crow's-nest on the
sky-Ime. Leading up to it are the olive-green billows fading into a soft,
blue haze.    .
In the distance near the peak is a snow-white precipice, which they tell
us is two miles wide and a mile high, ft is all excellence and loveliness until
one travels twenty miles farther. Then it gleams like the fangs of a wolf
It is the rock-face of Turtle Mountain, cleft from top to bottomin 1905 to
the^aestruction bf the mining town of Frank.
"To-day the whole valley, two miles wide, is a tempestuous chaos of
. white stone blocks, some of them as big as a* house, all with lagged edge*
and sharp corners. They are piled from fifty to one hundred feet high above
the original valley level. The railway line climbs over the debris Beneath
it lies Jfce broken city. -On either side of the avalanche stand a few deserted
houses, windows out, glaring like skulls upon the newer town. The whole
valley spells terror and tragedy. Even yet peopis talk of- Pompeii and
tierculaneum, &ut they are like to forget the more terrible fat^ of Frank
when rock hy millions of tons fell a mile out of the sky.
