A bath and a shave and clean
linen were magic healers ior
tired soldiers during the great
war. , In fact the - world never
fully appreciated before the
amazing virtues of pure water,
good soap and a nice clean shave.
A week of stubble gone carries
away with it a load of weariness,
fret and dispondency. It is said
that a woman can never know
this bliss till she gets, to glory,
and perhaps not even then, but
possibly nature has provided some
compensations. And then a bath
after a sweaty August day, and
the clean things, make us feel
that this old world isn't a bad
place ' to live in after all.' So
with plenty of good soap and
nice, water we are able to get
much pleasure out of life in spite
of sultry weather.
The sequel to the Kingston-
Putzel auto collision at the corner _ of_ Copper ..and _Greenwood

were" His Honor J. R. Brown.
Chie���� Frsfser and P. H. McCurrach, who heard both sides at the
Court House on "Monday .night.
Dr. Kingston admitted that he
was on the wrong side of the
road but cfaiujed that. L. Putzel
did not. have any headlights.
On the other hand L. Putzel
swore positively that he had his
lights burning and that he did
his best to avoid a collision. It
was shown that it would cost
from $300 to $350 to repair
Putzel's car. After listening to
all the evidence tbe arbitrators
awarded-L. Putzel $200 for damages.

The Late Robert Wilson
Coal Output Large in July
Figures just issued by- Hon.
Wm. Sloan, minister of mines,
show thai the coal output -for July
was 26,649 tons "greater than for
Jaue.<_ Tbe total output of all
coal mines in British Columbia last
month was 212,000 tons.
The strictest supervision and encouragement are being furnished,
by the department. Marketing
facilities are better and working
conditions in the mines have occupied a great deal of the minister's attention tbis summer.
Card of Thanks
W. C. Wilson wishes to express-his sincere appreciation of
the many kindnesses shown him
during the recent illness of his
father, and^to thank the many
friends who donated the beautiful
floral tributes.
An old and highly respected
pioneer in the person of Robert
Wilson died on Friday evening at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. Lund
on the Midway road, where he had
been staying for the past few
weeks. He had been failing in
health for some time and the end
was not unexpected. He was a
man of excellent habits, fine moral
character, and sturdy constitution,
and he continued to be active in
his pursuits till long past the age
at which men drop out of the rank
of workers. To this end there ie
no doubt that his sunshiny disposition largely contributed. His
cheerful spirit remained with him
to the last, and he retained his
clearness of intellect to bis closing
Born in Yorkshire, England, in
1842 he emigrated to Canada 50
years ago. He was married to
Mips Annie Johnson of Woodstock,
Ont., who predeceased him 28
years ago in Vancouver and his
daughter Mrs. Stabba died a few
years ago in  BaBhaw, Alta.
The late Mr. Wilson opened a
stove and implement business in
Hamilton, Ont., soon after his
arrival in this country. ��� In 1880
he moved to Brandon, Man., where
he had a large hardware business
which he conducted till 1892 when
he went to New Westminster, moving to Vancouver in'1894 and from
there went to Nelson in 1896. He
opened a hardware store in Greenwood in 1899 and afterwards was a
customs broker and 15 yearB ago
entered the custom services which
position he held until eighteen
months ago when he retired from
active life. He was one of a family of eleven children. He is survived by one brother in Providence,
R.I., and his eon William C.
Wilson, of Greenwood.
When he died, full of years and
ready to be gathered to his fathers,
the grief that waB felt over the
close of his long career was widespread aiid sincere.
He was an active member of the
Anglican church and exemplified
by his pure and noble life the
teaching? of the golden rule.
. The funeral was -held on.- ?��on-
day frouTfeEe* Undertaking Parlors
to the Anglican Church where services were held by Rev. E. A. 8t.G.
Smyth. It wag largely attended
and many floral wreaths were on
the casket. Interment took place
fn the English Church- cemetery.
The pallbearers were: Jas.. McCreath, Jas. Kerr, John Desrosiers,
Emil Lund, G. B. Taylor and Jas.

-Troop   meets   on   Friday   at
7:30 p.m. ia the Fire Hall,
Carmi-Kelowna Road
Carmi, B.C., Aug-. 21st, 1923.
Editor Thu I^edge,
Sir:   ���
I am writing- you to call
your attention to the importance of the
proposed extension ofthe wagon road
from Carmi to Kelowna, which will
make, what I believe to be, the most
important piece of road that could be
built in the Province.
By building- about 23 niiles of road,
following- the Old Toat Road from
Carmi to the Summit, to connect with
the road now built from the Summit to
Kelowna, about 24 miles; making- the
distance from Carmi to Kelowna about
47 miles. This proposed road would
make the most direct route from the
South and East, through Greenwood,
Midway and Rock Creek, to as far
North as Fort George; being over ��0
miles shorter from Rock Creek to
Vernon than the present route via
Osoyoos; and the roadbed would be
better and the grades easier. It would
also eliminate the necessity of using
the ferry at Kelowna to get to Vernon
and other points, thereby avoiding the
inconvenience and delay which are n.
formidable handicap to North bound
travellers via the Okanagan route.
Now, Mr. Editor, I think the people
of the Greenwood District should get
together and boost for this road. Let
everyone consider himself a committee
of one and try to get some work done
in this District that will give us our
just share of the Tourist travel from
the South and East; this proposed road
would do it.
The people of Kelowna and Vernon
are thoroughly aroused, over the importance of the road and have just sent
a delegation from the Board of Trade
arid City Council .over the proposed
route, following the Old To4t Road to
Carmi. arriving in Carmi, Wednesday
last. While here they expressed strong
approval of the project.
X' ��� We of this District,, should rustle
out our forces and back up 'the efforts
of the Kelowna and Vernon people to
get the Government in line to provide
the money to accomplish this work; i.e.
the Dominion Government to furnish
40 p.c of the cost, a.nd the Provincial
Government 60 p.c. Now, Mr. Editor,
I-Jjope -you will - give thia^ycur^tfiarfc^
*_f-r-T__".T-+  _.�� "v ��..-*..1*1   _��__.��^-��.!*.*.**  %&?-��.�� ���
sctpport, as it would certainly' enng" a., ;j.
lot of traffic through this District which
the shorter route  would  invite,   and
which we will not get without it.
Give the project a new start and
keep on shouting until it is pushed
through to a finish. It is worthy of
our best efforts.
Very truly yours,
Petty Tricks
Boundary Falls, Aug. 22nd.
Editor Thb Lsnes,
Sir: r
Through the columns of
your paper, I would like to say a few
words to the person or persons, who are
in the habit of entering buildings and
making away with articles that do not
belong to them. Among the many
articles missing, from my premises are,
a._pair _of field, glasses,, one .monkey,
wrench, razors, one cow bell, one dinner
born, etc.
Now Mr, Editor the .actual value of
these articles would not break the Bank
of Commerce or the" Bank of Montreal,
"in fact" it wont break me, but its the
inconvenience and aggravation that
hurts. If boys are guilty of such petty
tricks, it would surely come to the
knowledge of their parents, Who, if
they do their duty would see that tlie
goods were returned.
On fishing trips, hunting, or outing
of any kind, I extend a welcome' to all,
who want to take shelter from the sun or
rain storm, etc., but please leave property
as you see it, If the door is opened to
gain entrance, close it when you get out.
Be "good honest sports boys and you
will not regret it later in life.
Thanking you in advance Mr. Editor
I am
Sincerely yours,
U. F. Picnic at Midway. .

Big time in store for all who attend the TJ. F. Picnic at Midway
on Labor Day, Sept. 3rd. There
are splendid gronnds and convenient "places. Good roads from all
parts of the country, thus you will
see there is not a reason why every

should not spend a day's outing at
Midway on Sept. 3rd.  ,
Boost! . Boost! Boost! Everybody and then some. It is the'
desire of the U. F. to make this a
large and enjoyable and mamorable
occasion. So come from* every
spot in the Boundary and leave all
yoar cares behind. Don't forget
the day, Monday, Sept. 3rd,
Meet me at the U. F. Picnic,
Meet me at the grove;
Don't forget the date, old pal

Steering With
Scientist   Predicts   Day   When    Radio
Will Direct Everything Movable
Under the heading, "Coming of the
Wireless Age," a British scientist contributes a striking article to a London
newspaper, ln which lie predicts thai
wireless will be used in the near l'u
ture for directing ships at sea, train
and trolley services, traflic control on J
the road, fleets ot battleships and aircraft, "it will be possible," he says,
"to direct (lie path of everythinc
moving on the surface of the earth,
not even excepting human being, by
means of wireless."
The initial step in harnessing this
potent arid Iktle known force was
the establishment some weeks ago of
p. wireless lighthouse on Inchkeiili
Island, in the Firth of Forth. By
means of this "lighthouse," ships can
be directed through the dangerous
channels of the Firth my wireless, so
that there is no possibility of. their

First  "Pram"  Built In  1780
Constructed    for    Daughter    of
Duke of Devonshire
Although there are three million
baby carriages���popularly known as
"prams"���in this country, the history
of the industry has never been told.
This was remarked by Samuel J.
Sewell, who gave a Jecture on the
subject at the Society of Arts,
said he regarded the names
ambulator" and "bassinette" as
Perambulator was derived from
"ambulan," meaning to walk
through or over, and would be better applied to the person who wheeled
the vehicle. "Bassinette" Vas a
French word, meaning a cradle made
of wicker.
ln 17S0 the first "pram" was built,
for Geoi'gina Dorothy Cavendish,
daughter of the fifth Duke of: Devonshire. Two were constructed by a

Sixth Year Tooth Is Permanent and
Cannot Be Replaced
"Tell the public;" Thai is what
Dr. Mustard, health officer of Preston County, YV. Ya., wants to do. Recently the Preston County Department
of Health announced that the children
of the county were short on six-year
molars; and the editor of the Presion
County Journal dropped around io the
health oflicer's to find out what a six-
year molar was. Tills is how he tells
the story:
YVhen we asked the doctor about
molars he plunged into a corner and
emerged with a diagram of the teeth
of a six-year-old child.    "^
"The six-year molars," he said, "are
the first permanent teeth a child gets.
You, like most parents and some dentists, probably think lhat "-'first" applies only to the first milk teeth. This
is incorrect.
"Look at this diagram. Start at
the space between the middle teeth j
and count backward. The first five
teeth are temporary; the sixth is the
first of the permanent teeth; it is called the sixth-year molar because it
comes at about six years of age. Note
thai, there are four of these, one on
either side of the lower jaw and two
just above them in the upper jaw.
"Didn't know that tooth was permanent did you? Lots of people
don't. Persous who don't know,
think, it is a temporary tooth, nor
does any other tooth ever take its
place.     YVhen it goes it goes forever."
"Well," we asked, "won't it be
stronger than the temporary teeth and
last longer?"
"It may or it may not." answered
the doctor. "It's a large tooth, but
its upper surface has a lot of pockets
which invite decay unless the tooth is
kept clean and unless the child is
! properly fed."
"Properly fed?", we asked.
. "Exactly," replied the doctor. Children can't grow as they should unless
they are properly fed. Their bones,
including their teeth, will be chalky;
and chalky teeth decay quickly. Moreover, six-year molars come just when
the temporary teeth are decaying.
Rot in teeth spreads like rot in a barrel of apples; and the molars, particularly if they are chalky, stand no
more chance in a mouth full of rotting
teeth than a snowball in���July.
"Some of them are allowed to decay
along with the temporary teeth and
others are pulled by parents or by officious neighbors because 'they are
only milk teeth.'" Dr. Mustard was
waxing indignant.
We were indignant too! "How can
we help?" we asked. "The public
ought, to know aboul-iliis,\and'.we
want to .do bur share." -.-   7 7.V ; V" --

Little California Girl's Appearance
Transformed By Operation
Twelve years ago a little girl was
born into the woild with a peculiarly
queer face; in fact so queer that other
children tormented her by calling her
"funny face."
By the skilfof the surgeon's knife,
the child's appearance was transformed so that she will resemble her playmates.
Beulah Sterling, aged 12, waif, lay
on the operating table, at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles, for three
and one half hours.
As a result of the surgical feat, Beu-
'lah's cleft palate was drawn together
and the mouth and face entirely reconstructed. In several weeks a final
operation will be performed, and then
the little girl may mingle with other
children unashamed.
The second operation will require
the rempval of a part of one of her
ribs;' which will be placed in her
mouth to restore the proper contour
of her face.
The child has teen in a home for
mental defectives at Santa Monica
because of her peculiar appearance.
She. is even brighter than the average
child with her books and pencil, the
surgeons asserted.
. Is Globe Growing Smaller
Time Taken In Circling World Is
Getting Shorter
Judging the size of the world by the
time it takes to go around it, the world
is certainly growing smaller. The
trip round the world was first completed in 1522 by a single ship out of
five which set out under the command
of Magellan. This ship 'took three
years all but 14 days'? Drake did it
in six weeks less in 1580. Jules
Yrerne thought it might be done in 80(
dayS, and in 1889 an American journalist did it in 72 days. In 1913 another newspaper man went rqund the
world in 36 days. Alcock and Brown
crossed the Atlantic in 1919 in 16
hours 12 minutes, and at this rate an
aeroplane- journey round the ���vvoiid
could be made in seven days,-allowing,
one day for, stoppages.���From the

Native    of    South    Africa    Undertook
Journey Without Question
N'ot many people on this continent
have heard of the Wanyamsvezi, one
of the many tribes of South Africa.
Yet, a man of this black tribe showed
a- faithfulness, courage and devotion
to duty of which few men of any race
are capable.
The story of his exploit was told by
Mr. W. D. Bell in Country Life. He
had left his home --to hunt for elephants, leaving his ranch and catttle
to be cared for by the YYanyasmvezi
servants. His mail was to be forwarded by the district commissioner
and for some weeks he had duly received it.
On the arrival of a new commissioner, who had not heard of Mr. Bell's
absence, one of the caretakers, an
elderly man, went to make his report.
The oflicial handed him the letters,
telling him to take them to his master.
The old man, says Mr. Bell, took
the letters without a word. Though
he knew that he had a journey of
six hundred miles before him, he
went straight back to the ranch nnd
prepared to follow me into country
much of which was quite unknown.
Being a thrifty old soul���he was
then 65 years old���he had a large
stock of dried smoked beef from
cows that had died. His preparations,
therefore, were soon made. An. inveterate snuff taker, he had only to
grind up a good quantity of tobacco,
and he was ready for the journey.   '
Shouldering his rifle and carrying
the packet of letters cunningly guarded against wet, he set off through the
wilderness and headed due north.
Sleeping by night alone by his camp
fire and travelling the whole of the
day, he came wandering through what
to almost anyone else would have been
hostile tribe after hostile tribe; countries where, if I sent at all, I sent, at
least five guns as escort he came
through without trouble. So sublimely unaware was he of any feeling
of nervousness and so bold and confident was his bearing that nothing
happened. He chose the routes that
led through the most populous centres; he did not dodge along neutral
zones between tribes as a nervous
man would haye done. Wherever he
���\vent he slept in the largst village and
demanded the best of everything.
J EventiJaliy he reached me with the
letters. He walked into camp as if
he had left it only five minutes before,
and he still had smoked beef and
snuff.". .- - _     ���

No.  10 Downing Street

Cotton   Growing   In   Egypt
Only 100 Years .Since Commercial
Variety Was Introduced
Cotton has been grown in Egypt
since 200 B.C., but it was not until a
hundred years ago that/Jumel, the
French engineer, suggested the introduction of the commercial varieties'.
In 1822 the famous American sea island cotton was first sown. .Five
years later a Brazilian variety was introduced. The two strains were mingled and from them came the famous
"Ashmouni" plant and the. still finer
"Mutafli," \yhich is one of the most
productive cottons in the world.

according to an official statement.issued later, was of a serious character-.
The report showed that immediate
liquid assets-of the^bank have been
practically depleted.
Negotiations  with   other  banks   for
the absorption of the Home Bank having proven futile, it was found necessary to close the doors of the institution. The affairs of the bank will be
administered by A. 13. Barker, manager of the Toronto Clearing House,
who has been appointed curator under
ilie provisions'of.the Bank Act.
li is understood that he will be required to present, a report within three
months lime, when the Canadian
Bankers' Association will decide upon
what further action, is to"be taken.
Mr. Barker has been manager of the
Toronto Clearing House for the past
six years, and previously had long service with the Bank of Toronto, holding the position of supervisor when he
With_Co_ai From U.S.
Alberta  Coal   Men   Willing  to Ship to
Ontario  Despite  High  Freight
Toronto.���Premier Ferguson was
waited upon by a delegation ot Albertn
coal men, headed by Sir George Film-
er, who declared they were prepared
dunng.,the coining fall and winter, to'
ship 100,000 tons of fuel here so as to
compete successfully ... wiih United
Stales coal, despite the high freight
charges.       ' ���    "
They asserted the coal would be
positively of the first, quality, comparing favorably with United States
anthracite. They proposed to ship
by rail to Fort William and bv boat
lrom there, thus effecting a substantial reduction in rail haulage charges.
Sir George and his associates in the
conference are interested in the Drum-
heller mining region.'' The announce-
ed object of their visit to Ontario i.s to
endeavor to interest citizens here -in
the western mines as a source of their
winter fuel requirements
Montreal.���-In the course of a reply
to an article printed under'the heading, "The Whisper of Death," in the
Montreal Star, in which it was claimed
the    Canadian   -Pacific  Railway  was
holding  western lands at prohibitive
prices, and which was acting as a detriment to immigration    and   'settle-
��� ment, E. W. Beatty, ICC, President of
the Company, wrote the paper in part:-
"Up  to the end of- June, 11)23, (he
Canadian   Pacific   Railway   had   disposed  of IS;19-1,7.'.7   acres  of agricultural lands, for which an average price
of $7.87 per acre; was received.   During this period, the company had, by
direct effort of its own/ secured  the
settlement of over ,100,000 farmers in
Western   Canada.     In   view   of   the
prices at whicli lands of similar quality to those of the company have .been
sold   and  are now  being offered Tor
sale, it is apparent that the.price received by the company is extremely
low arid not prohibitive. The average price received for the sale of non-
irrigated lands in 1922 was $17.06 per
"Up to the end of June, of the present year, the company had expended
in irrigation .construction and operation for ready-made farms an improved
farms, for loans to ...settlers, for buildings, livestock, etc., for agricultural
demonstration and furtherance of the
livestock industry, and in other ways
in connection with the disposal of
lands and the assistance of agricultural effort; in Canada, an aggregate
amount of $64,646,000. A reference
to Government expenditures for the
same periods will show that the company's expenditures are very much in
excess of the former."   ��� >-

Ottawa.���Oflicial reports of the biennial conference of the British Empire
Service League in London last month
have just been received by the Dominion Command, 'Great War Veterans' Association, which is the constituent organization of the league for
Canada. ['-.'-.>
, The outstanding decision was that
dealing with the question of Empire

the principle of regulated immigration
for land settlement within the Empire
was adopted. The opinion Avas expressed that suitable schemes would

The Matin has asked-Premier-Baldwin if he is not aware that his policy
oward France is . tending to bring
about a movement in which the watchword will be, "No business with Eng-'

The balance of. trade which Vas
favorable to France until 1914 was
turned by France's war needs and7
lias since remained favorable to Qreat
Britain. "France," it is pointed out,
could easily turn the balance to her
favor by abstaining from purchases of
British coal which she might get along
without if the Ruhr production increased and measures for economy in heating and lighting were adopted. She

Josh goes off in a (laming rage, and

good case and starts the lawsuit against
A lew days later, Anthony Smar*,
another farmer, living some miles from
either Smithers or Atkins, learns that
there is a horse, about which there seems
to be some difficulty as to ownership,
and having lost a horse himself, institutes enquiries and finds that the animal
answers exactly the description of the
animal round, even to the brand. Smart
therefore sends a man up to Smithers
demands the animal. Smither's confronted with Smarts description and tl e
brand answering lo the oue ou the disputed animal, goes over to Atkins aud
they both wisely couclude that the game
is up, and hand the animal over to
Smart's man namod Ryley. Ryley leads
the animal away. Now in order to get to
Smart's ranch, Ryley had to travel on
the main road for some distance, a road
very popular with automobile, owners.
The same morning a contractor named
Arthur, who was the owner of an ante-
deluvian car that you could hear coming
for miles, was chugging along at a great
pace, when coming smartly round a sharp
curve he made up on Ryley leading the
horse. The animal, having been out on
the range for a long time, reared and
swung around, and the car hit it on the
-leg and broke the poor animal's leg, so
that when Ryley got home he was still
minus the horse, and was thus accosted
by Smart:���
"Get the horse, Ryley?"
"Good boy, where is it?"
"Down on the main road."
"What's the matter with it?"
"Get your gun, it's leg's broke."
"Who broke .it?"
"Tony Arthur."
"Son of a gun,  I've a  notion to shoot
