Saturday, December 4, 1926
The  annual   concert   by   the
young, ladies of Greenwood was
put on most successfully at the
Greenwood  Theatre   on  Friday
' last. The performance was staged
, by the "Canadian Girls in- Train-
! ing" and realized gross receipts to
the extent of $103.75.
I   The talent was all local and the
, Greenwood girls made a showing
' of which their parents and friends
may well be proud. ��� The costumes
jwere  tasteful   and   pretty,   the
scenes  well  arranged   and   the
singing good.   Much thought and
I trouble had  evidently been ex-
: pended in preparations with the
result that  the  entire  program
' wrent off most smoothly.
The first item was a very pretty
chorus of club members singing
"The world is waiting for the
sunrise." Both the costumes and
the grouping was much admired.
There followed a solo by Olive
Morris entitled "Garden of
Roses." Miss Morris has a well
trained contralto voice, and was
enthusiastically applauded. The
third item was a duet between
Ruby Goodeve and Nellie- Keir
featuring a violin accompaniment
which was most effective. Then
came another club event in the
form of- a chorus singing "On the
Riviera." A comic interlude was
afforded by Hulda Anderson and
Annie Swanlund's rendering of
ther- amusing comedy,. "The
Tramps"; after which Silvia Price
and Renie Skilton brought down
the house with their duet "West
of the Great Divide," the audience
insisting on encores.
. A feature of the performance
was the "Illustrated Songs," a
series of living pictures depicting
the music. There were several of
these charming in originality and
daintiness of' costume. The first
was Lela Brennon' illustrating
"O Canada,", followed by Cleo
Toney and Caroline Casselman as
"Red Wing." Eileen Bryan
showed us what it meant "When
Irish Eyes are.Smiling," and Ruby
Goodeve eame next with "Smilin'
Through." Vera Walmsley depicted "The Last Rose of Summer," the last picture being Annie
Swanlund's rendition of Mother
Machree.   .
Vera Kempston gave some very
clever humourous readings. Miss
Kempston's elocution is remarkably good and gave every sign of
careful'study' and good training;
and Renie Skilton and Ruby
Goodeve gave everyone a good
laugh with the comic duet "Who
the programme was a playlet in
which eight members participated
entitled "Sewing Circle Meets at
Mrs. Martin's" with Nellie Keir
in the title role, and Vera Walmsley as the irrepressible maid with
a liking for pretty hats. The play
is intended to illustrate the well
known truth that without charity
good works do not avail, .but the
audience seemed to - be more
amused by, the quips and sallies
of the backbiting old cats at the
party than concerned with the
moral conveyed. The characters
were well sustained and the
dialogue animated and amusing.
Mrs. A. Walker played all the
accompaniments with the exception of one which was played by
Mr. R. Skilton. Great praise is
due Mrs. ^Valker for her untiring
efforts in helping the girls to make
the concert the success it was.
The entertainment closed with
] Campfire songs sung by the club
| members to a most, picturesque
setting.    Altogether the girls of
ithe..C. G. I. T. of Greenwood are
to be. congratulated  on having
provided a most enjoyable evening's amusement" and The Greenwood Ledge feels sure that the
evident appreciation manifested;
: by the audience was some reward
! for all the great trouble taken as
j well an incentive to them not to
forget to give us a cpneert .of the
same kind next year.' yx i

The Grand Porks basketball team
were motored over by Dr. "W.D. Smith

and played the local boys, the latter
winning by 31 to 26. The game was
very interesting and fast throughout,
Greenwood having the edge of play in
the first two periods when the scores
were 11-10 and 8-4. In the���third period
both teams made 12 points. Dr. A.
Francis and Carl Thomet were popular
umpires. The Greenwood boys showed
a marked improvement in play over
the game with Molson the previous

coach. ���
A return match will be played in

Plunkett's Next Hit
The   I
In Lho discussions now proceeding throughout Canada regarding Federal
taxation, and In particular tho campaign being waged by the Retail Trade
Bureau and tho Canadian 'Board of Trade in favor of tho abolition of the
Income Tax, there is recognition of.,one .outstanding fact. That is, that the
Dominion Government must raise a large revenue in order to niaet national
obligations. Past Budget statements at Ottawa further indicate tliat the present volume of revenue is required to meet our war indebtedness aiuL obligations
and the current expenditure.-; of the Dominion, except, of course, insofar as
current expenditures can be reduced through greater economy and eiliciency.
Such reductions, cannot, however, be all effected immediately, while the public
demand i'or decreased taxation is rather insistent.
It would appear axiomatic, therefore, that if the Income Tax Is to be repealed, some other source of revenue to make good the iifty- odd million dollaras
obaiatod. annually through this tax must be tapped. Where that money is to
come i'rom, and whether it avouUI not simply mean the introduction of new or
additional taxes in some other form, advocates of the repeal of the Income
Tax do not explain. They do say that great savings .can be affected in Government administration, in Government purchases, in a smaller Civil Service, and
in Government expenditures generally, but, as already stated, these cannot be
brought about immediately to offset thc complete stoppage of Income Tax
Advocates of the repeal of the Income Tax do, hoAvever, present'a strong
and logical case as to the ultimate national effect of the abolition1 of Income
Taxes, and their views are Worthy of the most careful and serious consideration.   :'   ���
It is argued tliat the Income Tax is uot only unsound but unjust in that it
practically amounts to the imposition of a penalty on the most enterprising,
energetic, and productive ���ciiizens, who, by their labor and thrift earn larysr
incomes than do the less energetic and progressive citizen. Such a tax, thsy
argue,-discourages men,in their best years and impells them to emigrate to
the United States-where their experience and ability is recognized and rewarded and where only a fraction of their earnings are taken in taxation, as compared with Canada. *,'���*.' ..'.'.'''.'
It: is. further argued that,while au Income Tax may be a sound and wise
policy in European countries whose development has reached, a mature stage,
and where there are va'st accumulations of wealth, it is a fatal policy for a
young and undeveloped country like Canada, inasmuch;>as it operates to discourage investment iu development aud productive .enterprises; tbat.instead
of discouraging development and production, Canada's future demands that
every encouragement should lie given, and that througli such development only
can a larger and permanent population be secured,'and,., ultimately, necessary
revenues to discharge our.heavy war indebtedness and provide required busi-
,. ness fdr our. railways aud industrial establishments. '.*��� w::' ...'""'.
Again, say the advocates of repeal, the Income Tax acts as'a barrier to the
investment in Canada by men of wealth in the United States, Great Britain,
Holland, Switzerland, and other countries who have money to invest, and who
would thus assist in developing the resources'of Canada, but who'hesitate*
to do so in view of the fact, that their incomes from such investment are so
. heavily taxed. W ,_.
It must bo admitted that those are weighty arguments, and they must be
given consideration if Canada is to deal, with this taxation problem from the
we must look to retire our heavy war debt and relieve the Dominion of this
burden which now hampers our best efforts.
On the other hand; it is urged by those who favor retention of the Income
Tax that it is essentially the fairest tax that can be imposed, inasmuch as it
calls upon people to pay iri proportion to their ability to do so as represented
by their annual income. Further, that it is lhe only way whereby men and
���women who are not now engaged in any work of production but who are living
oninvested capital can be made to contribute their proper share to the cost of
Government. It was contended during the closing years of the war, and the
- argument still holds good in numerousr instances, that whereas Ihousands of
men gave tbeir lives, others amassed fortunes, now safely invested, and that
they should bo required to pay through a tax oh the income derived from thoso
invested profits., ;   ,
Then, coming back to the opening paragraphs of this article, if the Income
Tax Is repealed, how and where is the necessary revenue thus lost to be obtained? The Canadian Council of Agriculture oppose repeal, not only because
they regard an Income' Tax as a very fair method, but because they see in its
abiogation the passing of any possibility of further tariff reductions, and even
fear increases in; order to malce good tho loss of revenue.
' Possibly ' the only course that will commend itself generally to the
country, and possibly the only feasible one, will be found iu further pursuing
the policy of last session of Parliament and gradually reducing the-Income
Tax, step by step, until it roaches the vanishing point. If the Government
deliberately announced a graduated scale of reductions covering a period of
years it would provide the necessary incentive to capital, both at home and
abroad, to invest in productive and development enterprises, and' encourage
the enterprising youth of Canada to remain at home to enjoy the rewards
.before them,* while at the same time it would enable the Government to Inaugurate those necessary economies,to offset losses In revenue without having
recourse to other forms of taxation. _.-,.,���*.-'���

Revue   Comes West   After .Striking
Success in the East
Capt. M. W. Plunkett, producer of
the famous Dumbells, has scored one
of the most outstanding successes of
his career with a new song-and dance
hit, "Capt. Plunkett's Revue of 1926."
It marks a revolution in revue entertainment���a high-speed, elaborately-staged, clean-cut English-type attraction with more pretty girls than
a beauty contest and a superb singing
and comedy cast.
The usual chorus has been replaced by a Leonidoff dance-ballot entirely made up of specialty girls. Tho
comedy, Imported direct from London
music halls Is in charge of a battery
of comedians headed by Fred Karno,
Jr., the English star. In the cast, too,
are the. two Canadian winners-of international boauty awards���Miss Toronto and Miss Winnipeg.
The company plays   the
engagements in the west:
Week of Nov:"29th, Walker Theatre/ Winnipeg; Dec. 6, 7, S, Regina
Theatre, Regina; Doc. 9, 10, 11, Empire Theatre, Saskatoon; Week of

Comes Because the Nerves Are
Starved for Better Blood
Tliere are excellent reasons whv
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have proved
beneficial in the most severe cases of
sciatica, neuralgia and other complaints in that group known as disorders of the nerves. Each of these
complaints, exist because the blood is
thin and watery, and the nerves are
thus literally starving for the hour
ishment rich red blood supplies them.
Any increase, therefore, in the richness of the blood speedily and bene
ficially acts upon the nerves and the
torturing pains- of scatlca and neuralgia disappear. It is because of
their specific action on the blood, thus
feeding the starved nerves that. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have been so
successful in the treatment of these
troubles. , As proof of this we give
the case of Mrs. P. N. Bezanson,
South Alton, N.S., who says:���"Two
years ago I was attacked with sciatica and neuralgia in my back and
leg. The pin -was so severe that I
could not walk. Even to move caused
me agony, and I had to go to bed. Tho
doctor called in was not able to do
more than deaden the pain, and I had
becn in bed for; six .weeks'when.'my
grandmother came to/.see me and
strongly urged me to'give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial. She said she
has had a similar attack and .-it was
those pills that, had restored her to
health, T at once got a supply and
had only used four boxes when ��� I
found great relief. Gladly I kept on
taking the pills, and soon after: found
myself as well as ever I had been.
Gratitude for what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills did for me makes me urge
others similarly afflicted to .try
them." .
You can get these pills from your
druggist,'or by mail at 59 cents a box

Notable Ceremony At
Imperial Conference
Paul Kruger's Travelling Wagon
Given Back to South Africa'
Ono of the most notable ceremonies held during tho visit of the Dominion Premiers to England for tho
Imperial Conference was tho conferment of the freedom of London on
Premiers J. B. M. Ilert/.og, J. G.
Coates, and W. S. Monroo at tho Guildhall, and the subsequent luncheon at.
Mansion PIouso, whero tho Lord
Mayor offered Premier Ifertzog the
travelling wagon used by Paul Kru-
ger, president of the Transvaal Republic at the time of the Boer War,
wliich Lord Kitchener originally presented to Lord Bearsted', former Lord
Mayor, who afterward presented it to
thc" city.
The South African Prime Minister,
in accepting the gift on behalf, of the
Union, said the act of friendship and
good will will be deeply appreciated
for the motives inspiring it. The wagon was brought to London as a proof
of Britain's victory in the Boter War
and it would, he said, be returned to
its old home as a proof that Britain
had been defeated by friendship.
Referring to tho Imperial Conference, Premier Hcrtzog said:
"Our endeavor lias been to build
and not to destroy. I leave London
with full satisfaction that our achievement will prove a lasting success and
a pleasure to us all severally and

Favorable Business Outlook
Purchasing, Power of Crop Only
Slightly Less Than  Last Year
The monthly business summary of
tho Bank of Montreal says: "During
the month uncertainty as to the crop
situation in the praiiie provinces,
caused by adverse weather, has been
dispelled, for although much damage
was done, tho .crops which have been
garnered are satisfactory on the whole
aud represent a purchasing power only
slightly less than that of the. crops
of last year. Thus, this major element
of doubt in regard to business has
been removed and the outlook is one
of reasonable assurance.
"The improvement in industry and
commerce, which'*, has been a" feature
of the current year, continues, and is
perhaps most strikingly manifested
in railway trallic, while ���wholesale
trade is appreciably better than last
year, and retail trade has improved,
despite the difficulties of transportation in rural districts through-a .prolonged period of wet weather. Manufacturing operations on the whole are
Empire Air Conference May Meet in
Dominion in 1928
Tho Canadian Government has. invited the Imperial air conference , to
meet in Canada.. The date of the
conference has not been determined
yet but it Is not probable that it will
bo before the year 1928. The report
of the Imperial Conference committee
on air communications, which has
been adopted by the conference, approves tho proposed new air routes
to tho Far East and recommends that
the development of other air service
should receive tho attention of the
Governments concerned, and"that tho
Dominions and India should examine
the possibility of erecting nucleus
mooring bases fo ralrships.
Earlier in the conference Premier
Mackenzie King announced the intention of tho Canadian Government to
erect a mooring mast in Canada.

Modern Thief  Devotes   His   Energies;
ijo One Thing Only '.     '    N
The criminal of today is a specialist,
according to an eminent British student of crime. 'Mon and women of tho
underworld devote all their energies
aiul attention to one thing only.
For instance, ono man never stole
anything but step ladders, another
hand barrows. One hand barrow
specialist is known to havc cmpliod
valuable contents from ..lho barrow
into an obscure corner aud to have
decamped with the barrow only.
Another worthy well known to lho
London police steals nothing but
street directories. Book thieves are
the queerest of criminals. A woman,
of thirty-six was arrested in the act
of stealing a Latin grammar from a
bookstall, and two more grammars
were found1 in her skirt, pocket. AVhen
her house was searched it was full.of
Latin grammars and similar, books, all
stolen. The culprit confessed that-
she could neither read. nor write, but
said she wished to impress her neighbors with her' learning.
AJew years ago so' many rubber"
doormats were stolen in London that
owners took to padlocking their pro-,
perty. The police caught the culprits,
o'f whom there were two. Bolh took
rubber doormats and nothing else.   '
Two winters ago the London police
were puzzled by a series of thefts or
hea*vy iron gates. These-gates weighed from one hundredweight-to three
hundredweight apiece ,and in each
case they appeared to have been taken''"
away in a motor-car. This mystery
was never solved.

he could find.nothing suitable for.the
purpose of linking the chain. A'passing..motorist* asked'if he could bo of

this the chain was joined.*'The*cyclist:
went rejoicing on his way, and after
the loss of about twenty minutes rode

A new record of radio broadcast to

W. Houghton,. who is a member of
England's oldest bell-ringing fraternity, tlie Ancient Society of College
Youths, in a fslatemont concerning the
experiments being made to record
London's famous bells for the gramophone, said:        . " ,
"Big Ben is terrible anywhere. Professional bellringers agree that it is
tho worst bell in tho world, and it is
cracked so badly that you can stick
your arm through the fracture."
A reporter learned that Big Ben
has been cracked for about 70 years.
It is the second Big Ben. Tho first
was cast at Stockton-on-Tees about
1S52 and brought to Westminster. Before it was hoisted, various clocli
hammers were tried'and ono of them
cracked it.
The metal was seat to the old
Whitecliapel Bell Foundry to be recast, and the bell, weighing 13%, tons,
and measuring 9 foot in diameter, was

bell was also cracked.

chemicals so that thoy have the proper tobacco odor, both before burn:
ing. audi when alight Nicotin, ��� lhe
powerful oily drug which is the .active
principle of tobacco, was made synthetically some years ago by German
chemists, so that there would be no
difficulty about obtaining this drug
for impregnation purposes, even without using any tobacco leaf at all.
What oils or * other. chemicals are
used to Impart the necessary odors is
making of an artificial tobacco in this
manner appears to: be entirely possible, aud probably cheaper than growing*.: and.*: curing the natural leaf, it
may be considered doubtful whether

A most enjoyable party was
given on Saturday evening last
by Mr.-, and Mrs. Bryan
Palmer at their residence, assisted
by Mrs. Harold Martin, to about
50 of their old time friends from
Kettle Valley and district. Invitation were issued two weeks
ago. A great surprise had been
planned for the visitors no one
suspecting that it was a wedding
party that they were being
invited to, as Mrs. Shillcock's
parties were always so thoroughly
enjoyed. Everyone made up
their minds to attend, and naturally rice and old shoes were never
thought about. As the guests
arrived they were received very
cordially by Mrs. Shillcock or
rather Mrs. Palmer. Whist was
enjoyed until about 11 o'clock,
when the large majority was told
of the secret, so well kept. A
delicious supper was served. A
beautiful wedding cake in three
tiers was displayed on a table in the
centre of the drawing room, under
an arch centred with a large white
wedding bell. The cake was most
wonderfully. decorated and most
delicious. The Rev. E. A. St. G.
Smyth gave a suitable speech in
which he congratulated the bride
and groom, wishing them much
happiness, to which all drank
their good health. After a most
pleasant evening, the party closed
with best wishes and congrtula-
tions to Mr. and Mrs. Palmer.
