In the. biography of. Prof. George
Wilson of. Edinburgh we read that it was
his mother's custom to pay each night a
visit to the little cot of her two boys and
repeat over thetn Jacob's blessing, ''The
God who fed me all iny life long unto
this day, the Angel that redeemed mc
from all evil, bless the lads!" So fascinating was this to George that in mature
year.*) he told a friend how he used to lie
awake watching for it pretending to be
asleep that he might enjoy it to the full.
In the family, this blessing seemed, in
consequence, set apart, as it were, to the
two, . and. inseparably associated with
them. ���   ������*��� ,.' '"' ->" " ���'"       -.'

The Water Supply
Excellent' work has been accomplished in repairing Twin Creek
reservoir and intake, and Alderman Kerr as chairman of the
water committee is to be congratulated on the new method of water
Sunday School papers.
Last night about 9 o'clock a
fire broke nut iu a shed at the
rearof McEhrion's jewellry store.
The fire alarm was sent in and
the department made a quick run
the hose being laid' before the
alarm had ceased sounding. The
fire was put out with buckets of
water.. People ��� should 'be very
careful with their matches and
cigarette ends as everything is
so dry.

- The Dance given by the Celebration Committee at Midway
last Friday was not very well
patronized, owing no doubt, to
all the farmers being exceptionally Busy at this time ofthe year.
Those who did attend, however,
had a real good time and Bush's
three piece orchestra was- as
usual up to the mark introducing
many new selections. .About 30
from Greenwood were present and
dancing was .kept up till 1
o'clock. -.....-.-.
- Complaint has been made by
the Fire Department of interference - with fire alarm boxes by
by some children unknown. Parents will be well advised to warn
the young members of the family
to refrain from even touching the
boxes as a -wrong accusation may
be forthcoming. The alarm system is again in perfect order
after the recent repairs necessitated b"y above mentioned, interference and it is for the welfare of
all concerned that it should remain so.
The men w.ho have to do with
finance in a large way are predicting failure and ruin in the
trail-of the auto~and~good roads
madness. But these same financiers said in 1914 ihat the finances
of the world could not stand a 12
months strain of war. But the
war lasted for four years and the
world stood up under it although
badly shaken. It will be the
same with the auto and the good
roads. This province will stand.
It is the debt that does the
mischief.
The Farewell Dance given in
the Masonic Hall last night by
thc Pythian Sisters to Miss Eva
Murray and Miss Priscilla Kerr
was most delightful, Everybody
seemed to be in high spirits and
the dance went with a swing

Protect Our Forests
A recent newspaper report stated that before midsummer had been reached, forest fires in Canada had already this year destroyed more timber than
would be required to construct one hundred thousand new homes, or, in other
words, make provision for housing half a million people.
Yet in practically every city and town in this Dominion there is an acute
shortage of houses, with the result that rentals have climbed to unreasonable
heights. Thousands of people are ready and anxfrms to build homes of their
own, but are deterred from doing so because of the high cost of building.
This high cost is made up of three main items���price of lumber, freight
charges on lumber and other materials, wages of labor.
Jlecause of these high costs only a fraction of the work of construction
ls under way that would be tho case if costs were even slightly reduced. Because building operations are not more active, thousands of men aro being
kept out of employment, yet they are called upon to pay the high rentals occasioned by lack of houses.
While the high prices of lumber constitutes one of thc chief deterrent
factors in building operations, forest fires in Canada consume more than sufficient to erect 100,000 homes! Nor is the loss of this timber itself the only
loss: Those fires mean loss in lumbering operations, consequently further
unemployment and loss in time and money to both workers and lumber manufacturers, loss to railways in freight, and loss all along the line of business
because of decreased production. Nor can the destroyed timber be replaced
by new growth within the lifetime of a generation. ,
A great deal is, heard those days of reforestation, but not a word too
much as it is necessary that the Importance of that work should be fully appreciated by both Governments and people. By reforestation is meant, in
the popularly accepted meaning of the term, the (replanting of forest areas
which have been cut over by the lumbermen; that as the larger trees are cut
down I'or commercial use, smaller trees or tree seed should be planted and
thus provide for new growth for future generations. Let it be repeated, that
it is most important lhat such a policy be strictly enforced.
But how much more important it is that greatly advanced steps be taken
to prevent forest fires and protect the trees already grown and ready for tho
use of this and future generations! In no one year does Canada erect
100,000 new homes, and our people therefore do not make inroads into the
available amount of standing timber that fires have consumed in a few short
months. The need for the creation of a much more extensive and efficient
forest protection service in Canada has been clearly demonstrated in recent
years. Tlie people of the Prairie Provinces are vitally interested in this
matter as thcy must depend upon those Provinces having large Umber areas
for the lumber wherewith to build their homes. Under even tho most favorable conditions, the cost of lumber, due to long railway hauls and consequent
heavy freight rates, is a severe handicap on building operations in the "West,
and if through carelessness and lack of an eflicient protective service, count-
'less millions of feet of timber are annually destroyed by fire, the handicap
is thereby enormously increased.
There are broad national aspects of this question lhat call for consideration. Canada needs immigrants, tens of thousands of them. Each now'
lamily settled on our vacant lands requires lumber wherewith to erect houses,
barns and other necessary farm buildings. The present cost of providing
such needed buildings is one o'f. the obstacles to be overcome in order to induce new settlers to come to this country and enable them to succeed. So
long as millions of dollars worth of timber are burned up annually it is useless to expect any substantial reduction in lumber prices.
Nevertheless, until such reduction does take place, there is no likelihood
of that revival in building construction which is now a crying need throughout Canada. Tho erection of more houses would provide much needed employment for all our artiazn classes; more houses would result in a decline in
rents, and such a decline would enable workers to accept a somewhat lower
wage, and thereby remove another of the present handicaps on building operations, namely, high labor costs. Increased freight traffic for our financially |
embarrassed National Railways would follow. Last of all, a further inducement to immigrants would be provided.
It is furthermore generally recognized that the presence of forests have
a determining effect on such vitally important matters as climate and rainfall,
while a recent poster of the Fisheries Department of Canada urges protection
of forests with the slogan: "No forests, no fish."
Every Government, every corporation operating in timbered areas, every
hunter, trapper, camper���in a word, every individual Canadian citizen���should
exercise every care and put forth every reasonable effort to prevent fires and
protect Canada's forest wealth, which, to an extent as yet not fully-realized,
- is one 'of the basic national resources.
Egypt Had Large Theatres
Excavators Find Remains of One
Which Seated 8,000 People
The .unwearying work of the excavators in Egypt enables us, year by year,
to know more about the way the people of that country lived five thousand
years ago.
Professor Flinders Petrie has come
back*once more with news of valuable
finds, chiefly at Abydos, where the
early- kings of Egypt had their palaces, and where their tombs are now
being unearthed.
With them their chief courtiers and
servants were buried, in order to provide-them with company, so Uie official explanation went, but really to
leave their successors free from the
advice and interference of those who
were accustomed to influence royalty.
Small figures in ivory of lions and
hares were used evidently for some
game, perhaps a kind of fox and
geese. Ivory boards for playing the
game on have alscbeen found, and
balls flattened on one "side.
Remains of a theatre, larger than
any known to us today, show that
S,000 people could watch spectacles
on a stage '100 feet wide and 200 feet
In depth, the seats being 'arranged
on a slope so that all got a good
view. That is more than can be said
for some modern theatres.

Australia Has Big
Settlement Scheme
Proposes to Clear Land for Ten Thousand  Farmers
Sir James Mitchell,- Premier of
West Australia, wlio had .iust returned
from England announces the details
of the biggest settlement scheme
undertaken in Australia during recent
years.
It is proposed to bring 75,000 men,
women and children, largely in families, and sufficient land will be
cleared for them, which, when planted, will double West Australia's
wheat production. Funds will also
be provided for fencing, enabling the
addition of a million sheep lo the
ranges of the state. Resources of
��5,000,000 will be lent to individuals,
a million sterling will be spent in
reproductive public works, one ' hundred thousand acres will be planted
to vines and similarly large tracts
will be put in apples and other fruit.
The scheme provides for the settlement of at least 10,000 farmers.

G.  McBean  Offers Wonderful Assortment  From. Many  Countries
A collection of butterflies and

shortly to the Saskatchewan Natural
History Museum. It has been announced by officials of the Provincial
Department of Agriculture.
The collection will be presented by
George McBean, of Assiniboia, Sask.,

history, and it will make the provincial museum one of the best equipped
in the country so far as that department is concerned.
"Mr. McBean for many years has

chief game guardian, said, "and he
has built up a wonderful connection
with others in his work in all countries of the world. lie has collected

"Mr. McBean is very enthusiastic
as to the future of the.Saskatchewan
Museum, and he believes hc can make
it one of the leading ones on the continent from the standpoint of those
interested in butterfly and moth- specimens."
Mr. Bradshaw stated that the Assiniboia collector has already given
the museum several gorgeous specimens of butterflies from tropical
countries. At thc present time, the
museum is hampered for room, and
it is not expected that the whole new
collection will be shown in the premises now occupied in" the Normal
School, Regina. . There will not be
sufficient space for that, but when the
new memorial building is. erected
and-t-he museum takes its place in
that structure, officials hope to establish a special butterfly and moth
room, the most complete in Canada.
Many of the specimens that Mr.
McBean will donate come from tropical zones. They are very beautiful
and the butterfly room will bo perhaps the most atniclive in the Saskatchewan institution.
. When Baby Complains. ���
THEEE 'ARE MANY WAYS a baby has of expressing any pain of irregularity
or digression from its normal coition of health and happiness. A short
sharp cry, a prolonged irritated dry. Eestlossness, a constant turning of the head
or of the whole body, fretful. In these and other ways a baby tells you there, is
something wrong. Most mothers know that a disordered stomach, or bowels that
do not act naturally are.the cause of most of baby's sufferings, A call for the doctor
is the first thought, but in the event of any delay there should/be ready at hand
a safe remedy such as Fletcher's Castoria. ~       -'(
Castoria has been used, for baby's ailments for over 30 years and has merited the good will of the family physician in a measure not equaled by any other,
baby's medicine because of its harmlessness and the good results achieved.
And remember this: Castoria is essentially a baby's remedy and not a cure-
all for every member ofthe family. What might help you is too often dangerous
when given to a babe. >. . , V.       A

Becoming a Great Force
School Teachers Are a Great Factor
In Unity of the Empire
Eulogistic reference to the potentialities of teachers in preserving and
consolidating J:he empire were made
at a reception to teachers visiting
Great Britain from the Dominions.
- President- Cove, ~of" the~National
Union of Teachers, predicted that
with the spirit of common Broth er-
hood, they had become a greater
force than statesmen, in fact, the
greatest force in . the world for
maintaining peace. ~
.> Right Hon. L. C. Amery, secretary lo the Board o�� Admiralty, gave
the guests a warm welcome because,
he said, the .Government"-realized the
importance of what the teachers were
doing. "If we could make the position and, care of teachers empire-
wide," he, said, "-we could do much for
the-preservation of thc enipire than
any law or act of parliament could
do." "     .    ' '

"A loan floated in Great Britain for
the purpose of liquidating that country's indebtedness to the United
States would be an immediate success.
Up to the present it has not been considered politic to adopt this course
with the adverse rate of exchange
against . the pound sterling, but the
time is approaching, with the righting
of the exchange situation, when this
plan will bo pursued.. Great Britain
is not in the habit of owing moneys to
other countries. On the contrary, in
tlie past she has been the great
creditor nation and she is still so in
the case of most countries, with the
exception of her relations with The
United States, and much of the money
which she owes America was borrowed for the purpose 'oi providing war
funds for France when the United

Building  Only Three  Feet Wide Has

. How would you like to live in a little dream house only 3 feet wide, once
occupied by a picturesque dwarf with
wrinkled face and a long white beard?
You would never guess where it is.
It is not tucked awayana corner of tlie

No. 10, Hyde Park Place, Bayswater
Road���it sounds' like a magnificent
West End mansion, but it is just a

No one semes to know when it was
built, or why. One gets the impression lhat once upon a time its neighbors on either side enjoyed the proud
distinction of being semi-detached,
and that little No. 10 came and wedged itself in between them and closed
up the 3 ft. 7 in. passage with its
sturdy front door.
But No. 10 seems older than its
neighbors, so perhaps that explanation is wrong.
This house of the dwarf has two
long narrow rooms, one on the
ground floor and one above.. The
front i]oor has neither bell nor
knocker, but there is a letter-box
through which.no letters, ever go,
for the dwarf's house, is unoccupied
and has had no tenant for years.
It is said to be unsuitable for human occupation. ' It has no water
and no gas, but people did live in it
in the long ago.
Even now it is well cared for.   The
window over the front door is nicely
curtained,   and   there   is, a   box   of

known as "popular 'fallacies" has been
attacked by a member of the Federated Confectioners' Association, who
has declared that the eating cf sweets *"s
Is not bad for children's teeth. He
called to witness the children of the
sugar plantation, ' who, ^osstantly
chewing sugar cane, have the finest
teeth In the world.
The point was submitted to a well-
known London dentist bj*^ the London
Sunday Pictorial.    ���
He said: "Of course, sweets do not
Injure the teeth of the children any.
more than other foods containing
carbo-hydrates.
yit is a simple fact that soft whits
'bread has an infinitely more deleterious effect upon the teeth than
sweets.
"The action involved -in teeth decay is chemico-parasitic. The chemical action is due to carbo-hydrates.
_^The__mpral.indicated- is-a simple	
one. By all means let the children
eat pure sweets, but see to it tliat the
use of the toothbrush is not neglect-
ed."

they drive automobiles at night.
They consider it too much trouble
to. be,, constantly dimming their
lights when the machines they
meet are numerous. Consequently
they get out of the habit altogether,
even when they -meet cars on the

has a good crop.
Frank Clesaenfe came along the
river to fish. Frank knows all the
good fishing places but he is not
telling anyone. He can- catch
more big fellows than any one
man on the river.
Sherman Haynes and "Spud"
White, brother and son of Mrs.
Dr. White, of Penticton, and Mr.
Madden, one'time of the Pacific
Hotel, Greenwood, were visitors at
Christian ranch last week.
(From another correspondent.)"
Joe Christian and family were
business visitors to Westbridge last
week.
Fishing is the order of the day
for the boys are getting some good
catches.
Recent visitors to Greenwood
were Chas. Noren and F. O. Peterson who both brought homo some
new farm machinery for haying.
Trapper Jack Cochrane had his
first visitors this season for tho
fishing. A party of four motored
up and enjoyed good sport at Copper Lake.
Copies of "The Ledge" are in
great .demand by the youngsters
who wont from here to write the
"Eutrance Exams" all anxious to
know if they  had been  successful.
Guner Lindgren who has been
down the river helping Alex Wad-
dell and Sten Peterson who assisted
Jack Rusk through haying have
returned home this week to help
on the home farm. ,
Harry Lockhart, R. Lockhart
and J. Walsh, of Rock Creek were
Valley visitors tbis week. Mr. H.
Lockhart is on of the pioneerB on
the land here but has been a Rock
Creek resident the last few year?,
The road to Christian Valley can
show some fine crops on the adjacent farms. The fine meadows of
Buckless and Rusk first attract the
eye, then the well farmed fields of
Alex Waddell draw particular attention'to say nothing of the .well
filled barns on the Steeves property.
You would think we were back
in the 98's as "trail cutting" seems
to be the order of tho day. The
latest being a severely blazed trail
from Deer Creek and supposed to
end at Beaverdell according to the
sign written upon a tree on the
road which reads; ��� "Trail to
Mogue and Canyon Creek Lakes
and Beaverdell." Nobody,can miss
this trail "as some of the blazes are
two feet long.
The bright meteor observed at
11.55 on July Sth came to its end
within view of those going home
after the school meeting that night
and washeard-by thosewho were
not out. Many in bpd were suddenly* awakened by what - they
thought was a heavy blast of dynamite. Tbis"was the explosion of
the metear before- ifc dropped from
it course. Mr. and Mrs. Peterson
who hada full view of this eay it
was a wonderful sight. *
- If the people in C4rand Forks
who were admiring and photogra*-
pbing the- banks of smoke from
burning forests on the North
Kettle had been here the day
the cedar belt burnt they could
have gotten some real pictures.
From about 3 miles North of this
settlement the whole East- Fork
has been a'mass of flames .since
early in June. ��� All the cedar,
white pine and Hemlock'and other
timber between here and Lightning
"Peak has been wiped out.

Awciy to J. W- Clark, Pacific Bote!
It can beat any alarm clock ever invented waking a family tip in the morning-, ��� ��� -
Give it a fair show aud it can smash more dishes than
the most industrious servant girl in the country.
It can fall down oftener and with less provocation than
the most excellent tumbler in the circus ring,
It can make more genuine fuss over a simple brass pin
than the mother would over a broken back.
It can choke itself black in the face with greater ease
than the most accomplished wretch that~ever was executed.
It can keep a family in a" constant turmoil from morn till
night and from night till morning, without once varying
its tune".
It can be relied upon to sleep peacefully all day when
its fat her is down town and cry persistently" at night
when he is particularly sleepy.
It may be the naughtiest dirtiest, ugliest, most, fretful
baby in all the world, but you can never, make its mother
believe it, and you had better not try it.
It can be a charming and a model infant when no one is
around, but when visitors are present it can exhibit more
bad temper than both of its parents together.
It can brighten up a house better,than all the furniture
ever made; make sweeter music than the finest ^orchestra
organized;-fill a larger place in its parents' breast than
they knew they had, and when it goes away it can cause a
greater vacancy and leave a greater blank than all the
rest.of the world put together.
