British   Juveniles   by   Migration
to Canada
Splendid results have attended  the ;
migration from Great Britain to Can-j
ada. of children and juveniles whose i
circumstances in the homeland 'gave i
them no chance, but who through the
co-operation of the various children's
societies and the Government of Canada  have been given the opportunity
of a start in life under favorable conditions.

7S,000 boys and girls of ages ranging !
from 3 to IS years have been brought)

Dullest Job In World
Man Has to Protect Painters On
Blackfriars Bridge
It is doubtful, according to a London paper, if there is any duller job
on earth than that held by a red-faced,
pathetic-looking individual who sits
day after day in a small boat tied by
a rope to Blackfiars Bridge, which
crosses the Thames in the busiest part
of London. Painters are at work on
the bridge, and the man's job is to
cast off his rope and catch them if
and when they fall into the river.
Fourteen years ago a painter at
work on the Tower Birdge did fall off
lhe scaffolding and plunge into the
river to arise no more; and in consequence a demand arose that professional watchers be installed in the
river below as rescuers, whenever
bridge painting operations should be
started anywhere within the metropolitan limits.
The local authorities yielded to the
demand, and although for fourteen
years no one else has ever splashed
into the Thames from a municipal undertaking, the job goes on. The present occupant sits huddled in the stern
seat, wrapped in an enormous overcoat, looking completely miserable.
He probably is wondering if there will
bc another period of fourteen years
to go without excitement. When it
rains, as it does with-7-.unusual _frequency.'in; London, his bored/mien is
.emphasized,, because/he. has naught to
entertain ..him-but. the,.des,olate- rocking of- ,the "boat,- by/the waves thrown'
up 'frorii, passing barges.''_���'������.-' '���   -

Australia's' New Capital
Country Has Spent Millions Since
Selecting Site at Yass Canberra
At the close of their winter, Australia will place her new capital on the
map, Vass Canberra. The Federal
Parliament will hold the spring session tliere instead of at Mel bourne,
up to now the seat of tho'Uoverniueni.
Australia has made a federal district.
Nine hundred square miles of land
were purchased from the state govern-'
moni of New South Wales in .19.11 to
be laid out as the capital of the Commonwealth. Canberra was chosen
capital in ISMS, and Lord Dennian,
Governor-General, laid the foundation
stone of the parliamentary buildings
there in 1913. These and ihe government buildings face a central lake
with streets laid out iu octagonal form
around them. Or they will when the
job is linished under the Chicago
architect, for parlinient must first
meet in a temporary structure owing
to the other not being completed. Together with the great park aud boulevards, Canberra is situated on a splendid undulating plateau about 2,000 feet
above sea level, a Utile 10 the north
of the highest peaks of the Australian
Alps. The city site is divided by
three large sheets of water, supplied
by the. sluggish Molouglo Kivcr. On
one side" will be a fan-shaped residential quarter; on the other the university, municipal and industrial centres.
Main thoroughfares will radiate from
the parliament building.
Canberra is 20-1 miles from Sydney,
and a newr city must bo built there.
Twelve square miles have been set
aside for residences and structures
around the capital site. There are
360,000 acres available otherwise for
settlement and cultivation. One of
the features there will be an immense
avenue of blooming scented acacia.
This species of scrub bears the national flower of Australia, called there the
wattle. The periods of the wattle
bloom aro productive of wonderful
floral beauty, and Australians have dedicated an avenue of its bloom to the
memory of their dead in the great
war. The site is adapted for floriculture and has an equable climate not
very frequent in Australia. It also
gets a little rain, and the general atmosphere is more invigorating than
northern parts of Australia���the south,
of course, being the Commonwealth's
coldest section. "Down under" rules
prevail that make it difficult for Canadians to grasp quickly the antipodean seasons and terms.
What Australia has already spent in
the last fifteen years to fulfill her ambition to have a national capital is
unknown. Vastly more money has
gone than ever was dreamed of at
first,-but'-history,has been" made.since

; New Luxuries For
Railroad Passengers
i Potted Plants Line Carpeted Approach
! to New York Trains
! The daily departure of some of the
j fast 1 rains trom New Vork is most
j ceremonious. On passing the gates
J where tickets are inspected the irav-
��� ellcr finds that, a wide breadth of red
��� carpet has been laid along the station
I platform, reaching far out to the train
itself. The carpet is heavy, silencing
I every footfall. To add to the effect
j of richness, rows of potted plants line
j the carpeted approach. The traveller
t in, of course, relieved of all hand lug*
; gage   on   passing   the   barrier,-   and
strolls luxuriously traiuward as if he
j were a royal personage. Anyone can
j enjoy this surprising luxury by the
j simple expedient of paying the excess
1 fare demanded on the train.
j Carpet and palms are placed in posi-
! tion every day before the gates are
I opened and remain until the last pas-
j senger has gone aboard. The mo-
j-inent the train pulls out of the station
j this dramatic setting disappears with
j startling rapidity. The colored por-
1 ters roll up the long carpet into bun-
| dies and carry it away. The rows of
! potted plants, which have been placed
[ on wheels for greater convenience in
j moving them about, are swiftly rolled
i to one side and in a few seconds the
I train platform looks itself again.

An Increasing Menace
Deaths From Automobile Accidents
Arc Becoming More Frequent
In jnitigation of the alarming increase in the.number of automobile
accidents, it often is said that the
accidents are not increasing so
rapidly as is the total number of
automobiles operated. An insurance
company directs attention to the fallacy of this argument. If there were
an epidemic of disease, the "public
health authorities would take steps to
eradicate the cause rather than complacently cite statistics to show that
the disease is not on the increase in
proportion to the opportunities of infection.
It is poor policy to argue that more
persons are escaping death from automobile accidents because there are
more opportunities to meet such a
death. The fact is that, the number
of deaths from this cause is increasing every year. From the viewpoint
of public safety the automobile is an
increasing menace. The industry will
reach its most prosperous era, and the
public will derive the greatest benefit
from it, when the streets and highways are safe for both the motorists
and those afoot or in other vehicles.���

Forest Fire  Problem
14 Millions Said to be Lost in Year's
Forest Fires
Canada's bill for damages sustained
by reason of forest fires during the
past five years averages 514,500,000
annually. The number of forest fires
averaged 5,779 a year and the causes
of this shocking display of vandalism
were nine .times in ten human recklessness. Campers accounted for 24
per cent, of all these fires; settlers
burning' slash started 22 per cent.;
lightning 10 per cent.; and railways
26 per cent. The figure charged to
railways is, however, an unfair index
of responsibility. In the first place,
practically all fires started, or said to
be started, from railway lines are Instantly reported. This is not true or
campers and.,settlers and lightning
fires.. Again, the majority of railway
fires, being quickly detected, are
quickly put out so that as timber destroyers the railway lines have fallen
to a minor position.
The problem of land clearing fires
started- by settlers and running into
the green .tiiriber is one of the most
aggravated and complex. Settlers in
newly developed districts must use-fire
to clean up the debris and naturally
wish lo choose^ hot and dangerous
weather when burning conditions are
best. This inevitably means that for
the clearing of farms Canada has paid
a tremendous forreit in destroyed timber. Much lias been done, however,
to make the process of land clearing
safe by issuing permits for burning
and supervising the operation through
officers of the Forest Services.
Tho Canadian Forestry Association
has repeatedly pointed out that the
wood-using industry of Canada accounts for a national income of 500
million dollars a year and cannot continue indefinitely unless every safeguard is thrown about the limited possessions of the Dominion.
England's  Laziest  Village
Vicar Thinks Credit Should  Be Given
to Broxholme
Which is the laziest village in England? asks the London Daily News.
If the rector, the Rev. H. J. Griffin,
is to be believed, the credit must 6e
given to Broxliolme, six miles from
There are only twenty-three
houses in the village, but the rector
says he finds the task of administering to the spiritual npeds of the 105
habitually tired souls who comprise
his flock-a discouraging and exasperating one.
iit has long been a sore point with
him that on Sunday only a sprinkling
of his parishioners trouble to walk the
stone's throw which separates the
church from the village.    ......
He complains, too, that after
weeks of preparation and advertising
recently not one of the 105 arrived-at
a garden fete in the rectory grounds
In aid of parochial needs.
In fairness to the men of Brox-
jrolme, however, it should be said
that they do sometimes take a constitutional���invariably on the day
when the rector has. decided that the
leaves of the graveyard require
sweeping up.
The sight of a score or so of rustics
watching the rector over the churchyard wall as, in shirt sleeves, he bends
to his task, has its humorous side,
but the rector has yet to find it.

Canadian Bacon Prices Advance
Eggs Now Retailed
According to Grade
Assurance to Consumer that Eggs Are
of Class Represented
At the 1923 session of Parliament,
legislation was secured to enable the
Dominion Minister of Agriculture to
extend egg grading to the domestic
trade. Hitherto, grading and classification have been required for inter-
Inrovincial export and import shipments. It now becomes necessary
that eggs intended for home consump-
tionshould be similarly classified. By
this step the consumer will have assurance that the-eggs purchased are
of the class represented. This will
result not only in his getting value i'or
his money, but indirectly in increased
egg consumption. The producer will
also be benefitted because ho will be
in a position to realize the price that
a high quality product, should command over the poorer grades. This
in itself should do a great deal to
place the poultry industry on a more
prosperous basis in this country;

Ottawa Mint Up-to-Date
Deputy Master's New Process of Refining Means Big Saving
That a new process of refining has
recently been invented at the Canadian branch of the Royal Mint, Ottawa, for which great credit is due to
Arthur II. W. Cleave, M.I.M.E., Deputy
Master" of the mint, is one of tho interesting statements made by Col. Robert
A. Johnson, C.B.E., Deputy Master and
Controller of the Royal Mint, London,
Col. Johnson was in Ottawa paying'
an -official visit of inspection. He
stated tjiat the new process invented
by Mr. Cleave will mean a saving of a
great deal of money in refining operations. Practically all gold in Canada
is refined'at the Ottawa mint.   *
Col. Johnson said the, Ottawa mint
w^as the-most up-to-date one in the
British Empire.
Asked about the storage of gold
from Britain at the Ottawa-mint
during the war, the Colonel did not^
wish to say much about that, buUho
was afraid it had all now gone to the
United States in connection with tlie
British debt td the States"
At the time of the armistice 100,000
Belgian houses had been destroyed or
rendered uninhabitable. Of these
7.1,383 have now been rebuilt and restored arid made serviceable.

Editor The Ledge:���
Dear Sir, ���
Some time ago I wrote a few
lines to The Ledge about the proposed road from Carmi to Kelowna
setting forth some of, what I believe investigation will prove to be,
the advantages of that route to the
Greenwood District.
Iu The Ledge of the 13th inst.,
I see that the Greenwood City
Council has passed a resolution
endorsing the Princeton - Hope
Mountain route. This action of
tbe Council, it seems to me, must
have been taken without giving
tbe matter full consideration and
investigation which a project so
important to the District deserves.
In the first place, if our distriet is
to get its share of the tourist travel
the road had better follow the
Kettle River to the Bummit connecting with the road that is al-'
ready built from there to Kelowna,
and not turn off at Rock Creek
necessitating a climb over the
mountain range between the Kettle
River and the Okanagan and then
over the range between the Okana-
gaa and Similkamine and then
over the Hope Mountains, making
three summits to cross in place of
two by the proposed Kelowna road.
The Ledge article of the 13th,
quotes Messrs. A. 8. Black and E.
Waterman as stating that there
would be required only 86 miles of
road to build 10 connect our district
with tbe Hope Princeton mountain route; but I can not see how
they could reach Hope from Rock
Creek without building more than
twice 86 miles. There would have
to be built practically a new road
from Rock Creek to Princeton; the
present- road being only an ordinary dirt wagon road in very bad
condition the greater part of it. So
you see there would have to be
built practically a new road from
Rock Creek to Hope, if that route
was adopted for the interprovincial
There are several other reasons
why the Kettle River route is of
more benefit to the Greenwood
District;.one of  which Ib the  fact
that the route from Spokane via
Columbia river and up the Okanagan via Riverside, Wash., and
Oroville would cut us off from
practically all the tourist travel
from the South.
Now, Mr. Editor, I hope the
Greenwood people will look a
little more carefully and seriously
into the merits of the two routes
and lend their support to the Kettle River route which I feol coufi
dent they will realize is the route
to serve their best iuterest if they
give it careful consideration.
Thanking you for the courtesy
in giving space to the communications, I am,
Sincerely yours,
The diguity ot labor was a
subject which was once considered sacred but its glory is departed.
The laborer iu the lumbcrwoods,
the tradesman, tha worker on the
farm, were once proud of the fact
theirs was the chief factor iu
making the wheels of the world
go round. We dont teach our
boys to laugh at the old fashioned
ideas. We just ignore these, and
teach the lads that high wages
is the thing to be aimed at. We
tell them, that they are paying
five dollars a day in the auto
factories, and ten dollars when a
man becomes proficient. Wc keep
the coin jingling before thtni Ii
is big wages. rather than bi,4
usefulness, large uioncy rather
thau strong character that we
talk. But the boy should be
taught by the home conversation,
by the church and school, that it
is the duty of every young man to
have some business, trade or profession by which he can earn an
hoaest�� living i'or himself, and
he'p the community along while
he is doing il. The kuowledge
that work rather than play is the
source of-lasting satisfaction,
should be so taught that itslife-
giviug impulses would become as
automatic to the minds of men as
breathing is tc their bodies.

Only once in the history of Canada was the fold production record
set in 1922 exceeded, and that was
in ]0on. when the Ynkon placers
reached the peak of their yield.
During 1922, 1.263,364 ounces of
pold were mined in the Dominion.
The value is set at $26,116,050, an
increase of 36% over the previous
year's figures. In 1900. 1,350.057
ounces of gold were mined and tho
value was $27,908,153.
Canada's trade is climbing ahead.
Total trade in tlie three months ending June was $462 544,438, an increase of $110,841,056 over the cor-,
responding three months of last
year. For June alone total trade
was $179,720,516, an inciase of
$44,944,732 over last year. Domestic exports in the three months increased approximately $50,000,000
and imports approximately $01,000,-

not -without reason that this "province is becoming the

utmost fascination .and intrigue.   Quebec has an atmosphere all its o\vn,and,.if it can be said, more of an.old-
world-'-atmosphere.' than- hast the oldrworld of 7today.

twentieth, yet retaining its identity.

so; for theirs is. a rich heritage, and beautiful. The mighty
