On Saturday morning about 9
o'clock flames were seen emitting
from the residence of Ola Lofstad and the fire alarm sent in.
The firemen made a quick run
and did good work but it was impossible to save the frame building as the flames had already got
too much of a start. The cause

is estimated at about $2,500 with

On Sunday there was a Fall
feeling" in the air. The wind
blew cold and the autumn leaves
gleaned yellow and red. The
birds sought their shelter from
the chill north wind, and were
silent and listless. Few autos
hurried along the roads, as there
was little pleasure in riding. The
feel of loneliness for a departing
summer was in the air, ' Ladies
tightened their wraps over their
summer dresses. The call to the
picnic ground was not heard, and
the wander lust hushed its luring
cry. The end must indeed come
surely to the. summer with its
birds and its flowers.
Every season of good times
raises the standard of living just
a little higher than it was before.
On Saturday night there must

Main street on both sides, and on

common just now. Before the

rich or the fortunate alone could
afford. In.the winter expensive
fur coats are a necessity for the
wives and daughters of the well-
to-do. Now that farm produce
is away down what will become
of the fur coat and auto of the
common people? - These things
are perhaps as necessary now as
tea and coffee, The world stuck
to tea and coffee through famine
and pestilence and revolution, aud

Farewell to W. L. Clark
W.   L.   Clark,   who  has been
in charge - of ��� the   Midway and
Greenwood Presbyterian Churches
during    the     summer     month?,
left  on Wednesday afternoon for
his home in Saskatoon prior to resuming his studies at tho Presbyterian College. During Mr. Clark's
short Btay in the,Boundsry country
he has endeared himself to the entire community and to all parties
do matter to what creed they believed in,  and especially is be a
a great favor among the younger
members of the community for he
took a keen interest in their sports
as well as their   well-being.   On
Monday evening a large gathering
assembled    in    the   Presbyterian
Church to bid farewell and good
lnck to Mr.   Clark.    M.   Beattie
acted as chairman and called on
W. B. Dewdney to make a presentation addresB, and on behalf of
the Church, Mr. Dewdney feelingly
expressed keen appreciation.of the
members for Mr.  Clark and presented him with a purse containing
about $60.    Mr.  Clark .made  a
suitable reply,   giving his experiences on coming here and stated
that his first visit to Greenwood
was a happy one and that he bad
found harmony in all his church
work.   The choir rendered several
selections as well as solos by Miu
B. Axam, Mrs. Kinsman, etc.
The ladies provided dainty refreshments after which an hour
was passed., in pleasant repartee

Wonderful Scenes and Strange Cus"
toms in Eastern City.
Travellers who get bored with .the
charm of the South of France can
stop off at Marseilles and take the
steamer to Algiers which is well worth
doing, as one can get a glimpse of
thc Near East with comfortable surroundings in thc way of good hotels,
good roads and good cooking, writes
T. Walter Williams.
Seen from the sea, with its white,
flat-roofed houses and palm-clad hills,
Algiers has a most picturesque appearance.. The promenade along thc
sea-front is occupied chiefly with
cafes, where the Arab sheiks, in white
turbans and flowing *ed burnooscs
and sandaled feet, sit smoking their
long pipes, while the younger ones
puff cigarettes after the manner of
thcir French conquerors.
Near Sidi Okba travelers can see a
living saint, who has not moved, so
'tis said, for half a century. When
lie dies hc will bc buried on the spot
and a tomb with whitewashed walls
and dome erected over his body. This
will be a shrine for thc passers-by in
lhc caravans to linger at and utter a
The saint lives upon small copper
coins thrown to him by thc drivers
of thc caravans, and small offerings
of rice and kous-kous by the natives
from the village of Sidi Ogba. Caravans and experienced travelers always
pass to windward of living saints and
dead camels.
There is a  sort of  raised  earthern
platform   with   palm     leaf     malting,
where the traveler can sleep with his
oblanket  round him,  as   tlie night air
of thc desert is often very cool.
Thc matting is changed when it has
disappeared into the earth, which is
usually about every.twenty years, so
'that there is not much expense in
running a khan. Travelers take with
them a sack of dates which they
throw into a pool of water to swell
up before they arc eaten, and with
some of the Arab unleavened bread it
makes a fair meal. Those who make
trips only get indigestion once.
Thc sunset on thc desert, with the
long train of heavily laden camels on
thc horizon* is worth seeing to thore
who havc any imagination and had
read Burton's "Arabian Nights," and
there arc also thc wonderful mirages
to bc seen in the daytime.
This question can be answered both
ways. If thc deafness is due to Catarrh, success is general if the 'Sufferer persists in thc use of Catarrhozone,
and thereby drives Catarrh out of the
system. Penetrating through thc
passages of thc car, the soothing
vapor of Catarrhozone relieves thc
inflammation, dcstro3-s the Seeds of
Catarrh and thereby allows nature to
re-asscrt herself. For Catarrhal
Deafness, pain oyer the eyes, plugged
nostrils and other symptoms associated with Catarrh, use Catarrhozone.

Division  of  Large Estates  so  That
Agricultural Lands May Be Own'
ed By Farmers.
"In Great Britain two conditions
wcrc discovered as a result of war
difficulties which called for drastic
remedy," says  the Vancouver Sun.
"First, it was found that under thc
system of land-holding in existence
when war broke out, there was not
sufficient production- lo feed thc nation should importation of food from
overseas be cut off.
"Second, it was found that taxation
of non-producing estates was-not a
sufficiently remunerative method to
jifstify allowing large areas to remain
uncultivated; because the loss on production was many times more injurious to the financial condition of
the nation than any amount which
could possibly be realized from'taxation,
"Therefore, it has been

Are Invaluable As Hopper Destroyers
And Other Insect Pests.
A campaign for a law to prohibit
-aH killing of prairie chickens in Saskatchewan for five years has been
launched by the farmers of the province. They declare the birds arc
worth their weight in gold as destroyers of grasshoppers and other insect pests.
The value of the chickens in this
respect was oddly demonstrated recently. A'fatmcr driving a horse and
buggy through the country ran over
and killed a chicken. This was an
extraordinary accident, and he got
out to investigate.
He found thc bird's crop full almost to bursting with grasshoppers.
It had eaten so many it could not
fly and could hardly walk. Its voracious appetite for hoppers was the indirect  cause of its death.
Thc    present    law    that    protects
j prairie chickens provides for an open
determined | season   of  two   weeks.      During  this
guns  of sportsmen  are
over   the   prairies   every
day and the. destruction is enormous.

that these fossil beds havc been worked since 1913, and it is becoming very
hard to find indications of skeletons
as thc erosion of these bad lands are
very slow. (i ���
A remarkable find for the party was
that of two nearly complete skeletons
of thc duckbilled dinosaur (Prosau-

each other; a few bones of the larger
skeleton, which is about 32 feet long,
were exposed, and while at work, uncovering this, thc second, another

thereby will be brought about a sub
stantial increase of national wealth to
offset  the  war liability.
"The displacement of the landed
aristocracy is being speeded up by
the levy on capital known as ihe Sue"-'
cession Duties or Death Duties.
Business men acquire wealth as a result of their commercial ventures,
and whatever is taken by way of
Death Duties���while sorely missed by
thc heirs���is only a reduction of earnings. .
"But thc aristocracy, as a class, do
not make earnings; they inherit but
do not create wealth; so that every
death in such a family decreases the
inheritance by ihe amount of lhe.
Death Duties. Those Death Duties
being payable in cash throw a serious'
liability upon holdirur a large landed
estate. - It may bc difficult to raise
the cash when the Government has lo
be'settled with. So many large landowners arc selling their lands to turn
their patrimony into negotial.de securities and . farmers arc Imying the
lands outright.
"Illustrating the effect of this policy .is a public announcement made
by the IUn,slcr of Kinloss, son of the
Baroness Kinloss and eldest surviving

A disaster such as. destroyed thc
ZR-2 .would have been impossible if
thc airship had been a Zeppelin', 'according to.a telegram received from
lhc Zeppelin works at Friedrichshaf-
en. It is also declared in Berlin that
America was warned by Germany
lhat    thc British   airship was unsafe.
]t is said here that Germany was
willing lo construct a Zeppelin for
America at. half lhc cost of thc.ZR-2.
Thc telegram from the Zeppelin
Co. is as follows:
"It  is  too  early  lo    pass    a    final

THE     LEDGE.     GEEENWOOD,     B;.   0.
Ottawa.���William .7.Howard Tafty
chief justice "of the United States,
speaking before the Canadian Bar Association here paid tribute to British
. law and' to British lawyers, and declared that "the thought of the British bar was always sweet, as it must
be, to all those in the United States
��� who realize tlie debt the United States -
owed to British law." Mr. Ta'ft was
greeted with continued cheering- .at
the.conclusion, and.a resolution.con-!
gratulating him on his.appointment to
the chief justiceship of the United
States, proposed by Justice Riddcll,
Toronto, carried unanimously.
"1'fccl like saying: 'Here T am
again,' Mr. Taft commenced. "Thavc
thc home feeling hej-c. In Ottawa I
meet people and greet them with lhc
same feeling as I do people in New
Haven, New York and even Washington. I .have no fcelig of a boundary
line at all. I havc been in'politics and
abused on both sides of the line. I
have sat on the bench on both sides
and -have realized' in��� these���descents
the errors of men." It was-an honor
for the American bar to have their
representatives invited to attend the
Canadian Bar Association meeting. It
made for the firmer establishing of
t!:e friendship which did and must
exist between the two "countries.        .
Congratulating the' Canadian Bar
-Association, Mr. Taft said the American Bar Association regarded itself
as.the parent of thc Canadian Association inasmuch as the convention
of the America .Association in. Montreal in 1913 first brought the idea
to the profession in Canada.' >
In the United Stales they wcrc attempting to secure 18 additional district judges .to deal with thc cases
arising.out of the 18th amendment.
This. Remark brought another outburst of laughter, which was rene'wed
when Mr. Taft explained that these
judges would be used as judicial light
cavalry and would bc amassed where
the "rush of cases demanded.
Need Colonization Funds
Carlsbad, \ Czechoslovakia. ������
Dr. Arthur Rupin, head of the
Zionist colonization department,
told the world's Zionist congress
that half a million pounds yearly
for the next few years would be
required for Jewish colonization
in Palestine. Tins surri, if made
available would enable his departments settle 100,000 Jewish familiesin Palestine within' three
years, he added.
"Dr. Xhaim Weiztnann, head of
the world's Zionist-organization,
ridiculed the suggestion that
Great Britain desired Palestine
merely as a protectorate for the
Suez Canal. He declared Great
Britain's interest was encouragement to the Jews to establish
themselves, and upon their response, rested the future of Zion.

After the announcement of thc four
United Stales delegates, .it was -said
that the next step .would be thc selection of advisory bodies. Tlicir personnel, at least so far as the United
Slates is concerned, probably will be
limited lo 12 or 15, including a staff
of army and navy experts. - Thc advisory personnel also will include one
or more women.
��� Thc United States advisors, it was
said, would include "representatives
of womanhood, labor and other interests," pccali:rly interested in armament prob' ins. The advisory
delegation, it was explained, would
not operate separately-as a group,
but as outstanding interests to bc
given a voice in thc proceedings.
A foreign government, may have
more or less numbers in the advisory
or supplementary bodies, no limit
having been placed., on their number.

The Home Circle
There are men whose nightly return to their homes always means needless misery to their households.- They
find fault with their.dinners, with their household bills,
with the children, and with everything else. They make
sarcastic remarks that burn and scarify the sensitive souls
of their wives. They carry home the worries of business.
They "take it out" of their families for .everything that
has gone wrong in the day's work, and some are cowards
enough to revenge upon the innocent and helpless those
wrongs aud affronts which they have not had courage
enough to resist and resent upon the offender.
When you pull down the town in which is your home,
your are pulling down yourself, and when you build up
you are building up yourself and your neighbor. Try and
banish from your mind the mistaken idea that all good
things are away off in some other locality. Give your
town all the praise it can leg*kimately bear. It certainly
will do you no harm and will cost you nothing; and above
all patronize your home institution's���including the'printing office.
The progress of cities is measured by the public spirit
of their inhabitants. " Men whose-only .interest is in, the
success of their individual business may make""money" for
themselves, but they cannot build successful cities any
more than a pile of stones can furnish sustenance for
growing plants.

An enterprising clerk' was trying
to persuade a farmer to buy a
bicycle. The farmer was in town
for the day, and had determined to
see everything.
"I rather spend my money on a
cow," said he, proudly.
"But think," said the assistant,
"what a fool you'd look, riding
about on a cow."
"ETot half such a fool asJI'd look
trying, to milk a bicycle," answered the farmer.
