This winter'the Hockey Club
proved   themselves^ to   be  real
good- genuine sports.    This was
admitted by all the papers iu the
East Kootenay.   On St. Patrick's
Day they   showed  their  sportsmanship by holding a Dance and
Basket   Social   in   the   Masonic
Hall and again thev proved that
they were uot only good hockey
players  but first class hosts as
well.    That there was a splendid
crowd  and  that everybody supported  the  boys as far as they
could demonstrated that the club's
efforts were  appreciated to  the
fullest extent.  'As predicted in
The Ledge the dance was a great
big    success���even   better   than
was anticipated, and taking all
things into consideration a big
and jolly crowd was present and
the boys certainly appreciate the
loyal support   extended   by   the
public generally.   The'committee
had gone to considerable effort in

Report for Month of February, 1926
Big Game Dates Unchanged
New 'regulations'- governing - the
open season on big'game and.the
.trapping-of fur-bearing animals were
made public last week at the Parliament Buildings,-.Victoria, following
their approval by the. government on
the recommendation -of the Game
Conservation Board.
This year's seasons show practically
no change from the seasons of last
year, as a. result of the Game Board's
deliberations at a private session . in
Victoria recently. The reopening of
trapping of muskrat and beaver south
of the Canadian Pacific Railway Com-
pany'j main line is .the only important
"departure-inlhe new rulesW These
animals were projected for five years
and this measure has restored them to
their original numbers, members of
the Game Board.explained.
Black bears will feel the effect of
the board's decision, as embraced in
the new mles'to allow their destruction generally with varying:'bag limits
for the various districts.
In the course of their meeting
members of the Game Board met
Attorney-General Manson, who explained to them the ' recent reorganization of the provincial game administration. Members of the board
stated afterwards that they were well
satisfied with the arrangements as outlined by the attorney-general. The
board will be kept in constant touch
with game administration in future
although not carrying on actual administrative worlc itself.
Last Thursday A. J. Morrison
had a very narrow escape from
being ��� crushed to death when a
huge boulder weighing some tons
became dislodged iu the Wellington mine at Beaverdell. A powder
box filled with ore was fortunately alongside and this saved Mr.
Morrison. -Dr. Francis went to
Beaverdell on a speeder aud after
considerable difficulty succeeded
in bringing the injured man to
the District Hospital the same
night. After an X-ray was-taken
it was found that his hip was
crushed and other parts of the
body badly bruised. Mr. Morrison isstill in the hospital and
doing nicely.
Jas. Kerr, deputy assessor with
headquarters - in. Penticton, is
spending jffew days in Greenwood this week on business in
connection with his department.
Mr. Kerr attended a conference of
assessors in Victoria last week.
The ladies curling club met on
Saturday afternoon and wound up
the business for the season. The
club made an excellent start this
yearcand has a membership of
nineteen which brought in $38 in
dues. It was decided to donate
half of this amount to the men's
curling club for. use of the ice
aud the balance to be kept for
next season. A .hearty vote ot.
thanks was tendered and a gift
of a box of cigars was made to
H. W. Gregory for the able
manner in which he helped the
ladies at the roarin' game. The
members are looking forward to
the next season.
Two women in a train argued concerning the window, and the last one
called the conductor.
If this window is open," she
declared, "I shall catch cold and
"If the window is shut," declared
the other, "I shall suffocate."
"The two glared at each other.
The conductor was at a loss, and
welcomed the advice of a man who
sat near. "First open the window,"
the man suggested, "that will kill
one. ' 'Then shut the window, that
will kill the other. Then we'll have
peace."     .
Gard of Thanks    .
The relatives of the late Mrs.
Louisa Thornton desire to express
sincere thanks to many friends for
their kind words of sympathy and
help, and for the beautifuFflowers
sent doing their recent sad bereavement.   -)

World W^ide Reforms
All worth-while reforms are slow of accomplishment becauso the people
of the world are essentially conservative iii their thought find action, It is
perhaps well that this should be so, otlienvisc-naiious might be slaTrfpoileci
into tho ti<_<H*i> lance of unsound theories and hastily concelvetl aiul jll-consid-
fzvd policies leaving loss, suJfe'ring and rum in their'ivalie.
But there is such a thing as being too ultra-conservative, and so bound
ft? ��� old-time, precedent and usage thai vise'progress and sane-advancement
is mack; extremely difficult'and ���for long years imyossiljlo. Such extreme
conservatism is baneful. Danger Tnerc may be from the opiimisiic reformer
who urges his pet theory or scheme as a "cure-all" for tlie ills from which
mankind aad the* body politic may suffer,, and as the key which will open the
door to Utopia. But there is equal danger from the chronic pessimist who
scoffs at everything 'new and declares "it won't work."
.0 For. a long time there have been advocates of-a ..reform of the system of
���currency in Great Britain, and of the systems of weights and measures in Great
: Jiritain,* Canada, United Stales and some other countries. These advocates
"have consistently and persistently urged the adoption of Ihe decimal and
metric systems._ They liave carried ou'a work'of education which apparently
is going to bear fruit. At all .events, oflicial cognizance is being taken, bolh
in Britain and the .United States, of the growing strength,'of thc demand for
'���reform in these matters: ���*;
Great Britain, with its world-vide trade and commerce, cannot afford in
���these days of rapid communication and transportation,  and intense world
���competition, to cling, to its'preseut rather archaic system of pounds, shillings
and pence, when all the other great trading nations hare .adopted thc decimal
system.      .. *���'*���������''.
Nor should Canada and the United Slates continue "to adhere to their
���equally out-of-date systems of weights and measures with twelvo inches to a
foot, three feel to a yard, 1,760 yards to a mile, two pints to a quart, four
������quarts to a gallon, not to mention grains;-.ounces, pounds, pedes, bushels, tons,
���etc., with avoirdupois and troy weights.
The .adoption of the metric system of weights and Measures would cuor-
���mously simplify not only all international'.commerce but our own domestic
'���'business as veil. Soldiers of all nations serving in France soon discovered
���how simple and easily understood is this metric system, and undoubtedly
���their experience and knowledge is having its effect iu influencing the more
pronounced'iLglialioh for this, reform which is in evidence ihroughout the
���world. '.:...-���''
Another "question which is ��� coining to the'" front is the-reform of the calendar. Interested as-it is in the removal of all causes of misunderstanding,-
and in promo-ting the most friendly internationalism, the League of Nations
is taking an ���active part in connection with these reform movements, and at
the present time one of its' coimifR'toes is giving -con'sideration lo numerous
plans submitted to it, providing for a reform of the calendar. One of the
few plans K's-erved for fiirther study" out of the large number submitted is by
��� a Canadian; suit! provides for a year ���of thirteen monthsvyeach of 2S days.
Under this.plan*the first day of each month would be a Sunday. The present
names of the months would he continued, but a now month created our. of rhe
���last half ot" June 'and-the ilrst half of July. In order to'.make up the full
365 days of Llie year, there would iWone day at the end of the year to be
known ay "Vearlliriy." -The convenience of having all months of eaual length,
���and of having the days'of the week always jailing on the same dates, can
���hardly be': overstated. ��� ..
There would naturally and inevitably be some confusion at first during
the short period of readjustment from the present time-honored sj seems and
[ customs .to the new, hut the admittedly great economic gains and conveniences
whiohwoukl result from these proposed 'changes would purely Tar out-weigh
the temporary, inconvenience. ......
Canada led the world,,in adopting the now universal system of standard
time under'which the globe is .mapped' out in zones villi in which the lime is
uniform. 'Canada, like thc United States, has.a decimal monetary system.
Why should the Dominion not lead the way on this ".continent at least by
adopting the. metric system of weights and measures,'and also throw the
weight of its Influence into the scale in favor of a reform of the calendar?
New. Steel Takes Razor Edge
Modern Product Developed By Ohio
Man Is Hard, Yet Pliant
Many of the qualities^of the celebrated Damascus steel are said to be
found in a modern product which an
Ohio man has developed by a secret
process. He combines iron aud carbon in such a way that the resulting
steel vlll bend, keep an edge of razor,
sharpness/Is tough and can be driven
through other steels without breaking.
A-bur of the material, iifteen inches
long, was tempered to five different
degrees, one end of It being hard
enough. to cut glass, a section was
sharpened like a razor and would cue
dry hair without honing or stropping,
while other parts in the same bar
would cut off a spike-under blows of a
hammer, would spring or could be
bent backward and forward with thc
Thumb and forefinger without breaking. . Vanadium is an important Clemen I used in the preparation of the

Famous Carpet Being
Exhibited In Paris
Made In Persia And Is Value At
Valued at ��120,000 a famous Persian caipet recently arrived at Paris
Tor exhibition in tlie Louvre. It is
known to collectors as a "hunting carpet," and was intended to be carried
by slaves t'o be spread as ^a .resting
place for the Shah, Lions, "tigers,
panthers and stags alternate with
flowers.of exquisite shades of cream
and rose. France, if the carpet remains; will be liable to ��20,000 customs duty. Its owner has "already refused an "American offer of ��200,000
for the carpel. _ It was formerly'pari
of the Austrian imperial collection,
and was sold with the consent of the
reparations .commission. .According
to tradition lhe carpet was given to

by l'eier the Great of Russia.
Could'Stand Greater Unity
Canada and Australia Not As Intimate""
As They Should Be  N
Every dominion within Ihe British
emplro will Join in congratulating the
Australian Commonwealth upon the
I3Sth anniversary of the establishment
of British Government on the island
continent. Although Captain Cook
fhat raised the Union Jack on Australian territory In 1770, thus taking formal possession of the unknown land,
it was not until 'eighteen years later
that Britsih rule was formally set up
in Sydney. From the sordid beginning of a penal settlement for poor,
wretches sentenced to transportation,
Australia has grown to be a self-governing dominion" of states, paying.its
way, progressing .teadily towards'definite Ideals, upholdinjWlgid'ly British
standards ot juslice and right, and yet
developing a strong nalional spirit.
'flic relations between Australia
and Canada have not heen so closu
or so intimate as tliey might well
have been. 'Both countries are to
blame in varying degrees for this. We
Kre Australia's nearest .neighbor vllh-
in the empire looking eastward. We
are her easLem link with the centre
of the,empire. Tlie clos'er Canada

The first shows in a vivid manner

the notice shows, produces lethal effects without being - noticed. '
Another common cause-of accidents,
the league points out, is filling the gas
tank while the engine is running. The
motor should be stopped always and
while some garages enforce this rule,'
others^ are not so particular. In 'some
places the law obliges all motorists
to stop .dead whilo filling.
The third nolice displays the danger
from explosion resulting from motor-

Hockey Boys Entertained
Last Friday night Dr. and
Mrs. A. Francis entertained, the
Hockey, Club ' and'a number of
������friends���about 30 in all, to a
novelty entertainment and dance.
Everybody was' asked to. come
dressed as school children .and
the costumes were unique, original and comical. The party was
divided into four classes called
the Bums, the Bees, the Bats, and
the Bugs. A number of funny
contests were competed for which
points were given. There ywere
potato races," golf, bean -bag-,.
biscuit; eating-, gum chewing and
the one which probably created
the most interest was a parody
composed to the tune of "Show
me the way to go home." The
Bums won the most points and
the Bees second! Wm. Wilson
had a most difficult task judging
the winners. Great excitement
prevailed when Miss C. Hallstron)
and Geo. Clerf were announced
as the best dressed boy and girl
Because ;,everybody went wholeheartedly into the fun the evening
was very enjoyable- indeed.
Refreshments were served about
midnight and dancing continued
until after 2 o'clock. This is the
second time that- Dr. and; Mrs.
Francis have entertained the club
and  the   hockey boys   certainly
extended to them.
Pioneer Laid to Rest
The funeral
Mrs. Louisa
Thornton, whose death; brief
mention was made in the previous
-issue; was held in Greenwood, on
Saturday morning, services being
conducted by Rev. Father Coccola
in the Catholic Church and at the
graveside. It was largely attended by oldtimers, coming from all
over the district. The pallbearers
were: Chas. Gauvreau, J. C.
Boltz, D. J. . McDonald, Wm.
Riley, Frank Maletta and Sam
Bombini.     '
The death of Mrs. Thornton-��a
the . Racred Heart Hospital' in
Spokane on March 9th, removes
another from the dwindling list
of women pioneers. She had not
been in good health for some time
���-and after repeated efforts to get
well she succumbed to the dread
disease that^adgot such.a strong
hold on her.      * ,. 7*. v.*..:
She wasJ born/near   Colville,
Wash,, 63 years ago and for over
'���' 40 years was a resident of this
province, living for a time on the
Fraser. river before locating ia
the Boundary. She; was the
widow of the late John Thornton,:
better known as -'Jolly Jack",
whose grave, is known to many,
situated across from the'rock
bluff oa the Midway .road-'below
Kerr creek. ";."���'
Mrs. Thornton is survived.by

... (Experimental Farm Note)
Potatoes. For earliest planting
Early Ohio, Early Rose and Irish
Cobbler are recommended. Main
crop and late, Wee Macgregor, Gold
Coin, Green Mountain, Sir VV.
Raleigh, Rural Russet and Netted
Carrots. For main crop nothing is
better than a good strain of Chantenay.
For early work Early Horn may be
used. If a short carrot is' required
for later use Oxheart may be grown
to advantage. Garden Gem is a very
good variety, but is heavier in top
than Chantenay.
Beet. Nothing surpasses Detroit
Dark Red, and here it is ready for
use as soon as Crosbys Egyptian, and
has a much better colour. Where
beets grow rapidly and become large,
sowings should be made weekly from
mid May to mid June. The later
sowings will give.. ideal roots for
winter storing.
Parsnips. Hollow Crown and
Coopers Champion arc both varities
of merit, but strain enters largely into
the matter. '
Radish. Scarlet Oval and Scarlet
White Tip Turnip are both good.
For variety French Breakfast and
Icicle may be added.    ,�������� \
Turnips. For earliest use wc
favour White-Milan. This is followed by Snowball and Goldenball, the
latter perhaps the best flavoured
turnip grown.
Peas. Where only a limited number of varieties may be grown, the
following will be found satisfactory:
Gregory Surprise & Thos. Laxton
early, followed by The Lincoln foi
main crop and Stratagem' late., We
cannot speak too .highly of the Lincoln, as over a series of years it has
proven to be the most constant pea
grown by us, always yielding a full
crop of well-filled pods wjth' peas of
the. highest quality. For exhibition
work, the large podded varieties of
Telephone type are desirable.
Beans. Best results liave been obtained with Davis White Wax,
Bountiful, .Masterpiece, Ward well.
Kidney Wax and Stringless Green
Pod. For longer seasons than ours
add Hodson Long Pod and Refugee
to this list. In runner beans Scarlet
Runner is desirable.
Cabbage. For earliest use Golden
Acre and Copenhagen Market. For
pointed varieties, Suttons Little Gem
and Early Jersey Wakefield. For
winter storage, Danish Ballhead or
Danish Round Head.
Cauliflower. Nothing better than
Early D warf Erfurt ���& Snowball.
Celery. White Plume recommended for earliest ..celery, .followed
by Golden: Self Blanching. 7 The
latter gives good compact heads of
fine, quality. For late-work Giant
Pascal & Evans Triumph.
Corn. Best results are obtained
with Pickaninny, Banting, (both productions of C. E. F., Ottawa,) and
Malakoff.-- '   y
Lettuce.    In    loose    leaf   lettuce
Grand   Rapids   still leads the way.
Head lettuce preferred are Wheelers
Hanson and Giant Crystal Head.
Tomato. We have to depend on
a quickly maturing tomato here, and
for this purpose find the best to be
Alacrity, Earliana and Burbank. In
favourable seasons Bonnie Best does
well. Danish Expert, although rather
small, is recommended for shape and
smoothness. : '.'���*��� ���.

Seven hundred, years . ago, the
= pigeonsof the_Fieej3it5Lof_Ragusa,,
in Dalmatia, were-postmen. They
went across all the seas. in boats,
travelled with all the caravans, and
knew all the routes of the air which
brought them back to .Ragusa.
Like the sailors of Ragusa. the/
were known in all the ports of the
world; as a protection, they''were
made citizens oi the Free . City of
Ragusa. Any person molesting^or
insulting a pigeon was therefore
guilty of 'offense against the state,'
and was brought before_the_tribunal.
Homes were built for these pigeons
ih the city walls, and the streets and
-roof tops were "theirs. Every man
who entered at -the city gates -was
obliged to offer as tribute from his
in wooden .^jages labeled with the
narr.es of their, homes, and gossiped
with the,pther pigeons until their turn
came to carry out a letter. In this
way, Ragusa enlarged. its postal
system.   .
- But the centuries rolled by. Ragusa
lost its freedom. Venice usurped its
powers on the seas.. Battleships
steamed up and^down the Adriatic.
With the other citizens, the pigeons
lost their rights and' were forced to
associate wjth .the-'sea-gulls, from
Lacroma, an island to the north,
sometimes suffering the indignity of
begging grain from the birds with
whom in the days of their exclusive
splendour, they would not.associate,
