Our New Linotype
With this issue of the Greenwood
Ledge we have reached a long cherished hope, and the type this week is set
on our new' Linotype, installed on
Tuesday by Mr. Dugald Campbell, of
Vancouver, B. C. representative of the
Mergcnthaler Lintoype Company of
New York.
It is needless for us to say just what
the installation of this marvel of mechanism will mean to The Ledge, and
we sincerely hope our readers will find
our columns increasingly interesting
during the clays that lie ahead. We
have no misgivings on our decision to
install a Linotype, no printing shop today is complete without one, and while
we may have our own difficulties in
marstering the intricacy of the machine, on the face of it it looks simple
enough. With this issue also we are introducing to our readers a brand new
style of type face, Ionic No. 5, designed and cut by the Linotype Company
especially for making newspaper reading easy for those who have trouble
with their eyes.
. We sincerely hope our readers will
endorse our new venture, it means a
better service to all concerned, a better and. more ��� progressive paper for
Greenwood and district, and a staunch
faith in the future of our district.
Next-week and following weeks we
will have a number of interesting articles on the evolution of type-setting
since the advent of the Linotype.

Sports Program
The District Jubilee Celebration
Committee met at Ingram Bridge on
Saturday afternoon, Rock Creek, West-

Wednesday, June 29th, was chosen
cleanup day on the Kettle Valley
hockey grounds near Ingram Bridge,

bring horses to help with the work.
The grounds will be put in good order
for all events and Messrs. Brown and

stand and will cater to the needs of
the day.-
The subscription lists from the different towns were turned in and they
amounted to over $100, which was very
encouraging. A further amount is expected.
. The committee suggests that all car
owners decorate their cars for the occasion. " ��  .
The question of bringing children to
the grounds was thoroughly discussed
and it was decided to asfi auto owners,
through the medium of The Greenwood Ledge, who have available room
in their cars to take any children that
they know who have no way-of getting to the celebration.
It was decided that a-charge of 50c
for adults, with children free, will be
made on the grounds. This is one way
of raising funds to pay prize monies.

Killed at Bridesville
A sad Natality occurred at'Bridesville
on Saturday afternoon when , Alfred
Gausten met death, being struck by a
cai\ It-appears'.that young-'Gaustin
was running from the bunk house to
the hotel when W. G. Chahley, who
was returning from a motor-trip to
Vancouver appeared. He honked his
horn, but as the lad was deaf he was
unable to heed the warning. ;        ^
Mr. Ghahley-tried his utmost to
avoid the boy by turning off the road,
but the youth kept on and was struck
on the right side of the head, fracturing his skull, by coming into contact
with the headlight; V
Coroner Dr. A. Francis empaneled a
jury and visited the scene.of the accident on Monday and gave permission
to bury the body. ���������:��� W'.���*���*
Owing to Constable D. A. McDonald
of. Oliver, who was in charge of the
case, not being able to attend the inquest until Wednesday, it was postponed until that day in Greenwood.
The jurymen were: Foreman, W. B.
Fleming, J. C. Henderson, Geo. Ham-
bly, A. D. McKenzie, L. Bryant and E.
J. White.   Their verdict follows:
"That Alfred Gauston' came to his
death* on the 18th day of June at
Bridesville at about 3.30 tun. by being struck by an automobile driven bv
W. G. Chakley, and' we find that W.
G. Chahley used every reasonable
precaution to avoid an accident."
The jurors apDointed to investigate
the"death of Alfred Gausten- recommended that there be placed a danger
siren about 100 yards from the railway trestle, -on-the"west side of the
said trestle, as we consider it a dangerous crossing:."
Alfred Gaustin was seven yeacs old,
and is survived by his mother and brother and sister in Bridesville.   -      \\

The Mosquito Pest
Carry Out Death Sentences
Seventeen   Persons   in   Canada. Sentenced to  Dea'th  and  Nine
Executed in One Year
Canadian courts pronounced tlie
sentence of death upon a total of 17
persons charged'"with murder during
the fiscal year ended March SI last.
Nine of these convicted murderers
wero executed, according to oflicial
records available here. In five cases
commutation of sentence to life im-
pri-ioiimout was granted, whilo new
trials were secured in the remaining
three instances.
Approximately 759 persons incarcerated In ponilentiarlcs throughout
the country for various crimes wero
released on ticket of leave. Approximately 8-1S applications for release
from prison wore refused during thc
Tho people of Canada are slowly awakening to .lho necessity of concerted, aggressive action to destroy the breeding places of mosquitoes. Like so
many other things with which wo stupidly put up, tho mosquito pest can-ho
practically eliminated if we go the right way about it, and become fully
��� convinced that prevention is worthwhile. The mosquito is not only a source
of irritation and pain, but it is an actual menace not only to human beings
but to dumb animals as well.
Thcy United States succeeded in constructing the Panama Canal,Where
tho French had failed, largely because tlie American engineers tackled the
���'problem*of'first destroying tho mosquitoes and flies which made lite unbearable in the,Panama zone ancl were the prolific carriers of disease and fever
'. among tho workmen. Panama had first lo be made a fit place in which to
live and worlc before ihe canal could be built. And the campaign which.was
successfully conducted there has been followed elsewhere in the southern
elates. ,.
Apart altogether from the discomfort to humans, anctHhe communication
of disease for which the mosquito is responsible, the fact is tliat the country
sustains, an economic, loss" as a result of the tortures endured by horses,
cattle, and other animals in the open where mosquitoes thrive unmolested
and those dumb creatures have no (means of-protecting-., themselves. The
question has well been asked, how can animals upon wliich farmers rely for
���work and production yield normal production under such conditions? Anything that will eliminate the mosquito aud free horses and cattle from the
irritation whicli they now must undergo would be repaid many times over.
Mosquito elimination campaigns aro now hi progress n Pan ff; Ottawa,
Winnipeg, and in ihc Fraser River Valley, and every ���community whicli suffers.
from this pest would he well, advised to follow their example.; Inasmuch.as
the scientific facts upon.'whicli mosquito control is based are. of .general
public interest, we quote the following.from Toronto' Saturday Night, which
is urging Governments to take the lead in these campaigns.* .'...���..'
Thc Ufc-history of the mosquito shows -that most of the eggs are laid
the previous summer in this latitude, either in stagnant pools or in places
that will become stagnant for ..a. sufficient-length of time in the spring.
Uarrels, old cans, broken bottles, or any water-containing, vessels lying in
the open arc also favorite breeding places. ".Rivers or running streams da not
breed, mosquito-os, hut flood waters and snow-pools may prove targe sources
of thc pest. Lawns and golf courses, open." grass-and* shrubberies do'not
breed mosquitoes. The.eggs arc laid im stagnant water, or where there will
. be stagnant water for a sufficient length of time.
Pools (hat dry up in'.two or three .weeks are of no' 'consequence.* The eggs
are not affected in the least degree by. frost, *but'hatch oat about; April 15th,
sometimes earlier, into ���������wriggler's, or larvae,* as scientists call them. These
1 wrigglers swim and feed in the stagnant pools, rising every two or three
minutes to the surface, tail first. On the tail is a" fine air tube, which'is
thrust just above Ihe surface to take in ��air���without whicli the wrigglers
cannol. Jive. After-two or lliree weeks'of this existence the wrigglers change
' into common shaped pupae,. which in'Jrom two to seven days come to the
surface, split ancl liberate the complete mosquito.
Thus,' in lho life cycle of the,mosquito it is most readily destroyed in the
���wriggler stage by placing oil the 'surfaceof the pools a thin film of crude oil,
a cheap commodity, which chokes'*or poisons the fine air-tube at the end..of
" the wriggler's tail. This is applied either by watering cans or by knap-sack
sprayers. Small areas may he successfully handled by individuals with coal-
oil: or crank-case waste oil from-automobiles." Rags, soaked in these substances, may bc weighted with stones and thrown into pool's.
In these days of machinery on the fann and I.he almost universal use of
automobile, there are oil soaked rags about, dirty .waste oil arter cleaning
'   out automobile crank cases and parts of tractors and other machinery, and
if these waste substances, instead of being burned, were thrown into stagnant pools of water and other brej^ing^Elacgg^JJlo^^

Heart Secondary Motive Power
Activity of! Cells Comes First Says
German Professor
Professor Martin Mendelsohn, who
has occupied the chair of diseases oi
the heart in Berlin university since
1S99. has put forward thc extraordinary theory' that the heari Is not the
prime'motive power for life, but as
an organ.plays only a secondary part.
His theory is thai, iho activity of the
cells of the body, in absorbing and
.eliminating', fluids, constitutes tlie
chief motive power in forcing tho
blood through the system.
Oppose Granting Subsidy
Objection to   Proposal   That   Federal
Government Should Subsidize
Seed Growers
At the twenty-sixth annual convention of the Canadian Seed Growers'
Association, at Victoria, President
Strange objected to proposals that the
federal government should subsidize
seed growers. He preferred, he said,
some system whereby -the product of
tho expert growers should be identified, enabling such growers lo benefit
from public demand for output of
"Thero Is no questioning lhat tho
high place Canadian field crops hold
abroad Ja duo in no sniall degree to
the fact that the producer has had,
for many years, seed of superior
pedigree. Those have allowed the
Canadian fawner to compete in world
markets despite the higher' Canadian
scale of living ancl production costs,"
said Mr. Strange, in paying a tribute
to the splendid work o'f past presidents and oflicials of the association,
Tiie directors' report presented by
Peter Stewart, Ottawa, secretary-
treasurer, gave the following data as

Last Fiscal Year
Canada's net debt was reduced by
$-12,000,000 during thc fiscal year
ending March 31st, 1927.
When he delivered his budget
speech February 17 last, Hon. J. A.
Robb, Minister of Finance,, could only
estimate what tlie decrease would be,
since the Government's linancial year
had still another six weeks lo go. Mr,
Robb erred on the side of^caution, and
placed the figure at $31,000,000. That
ho was well within the mark is indicated by the information that ho under-estimated the amount by eleven
.million dollars,
��� It is figured that in the last- four
years Uie national debt has been reduced by $106,000,000. -
In November oC .this year there are
maturing loans of $37,000,000, tho
minister hopes to redeem one of them
in-cash and at least apportion of tho
other, while necessary .refinancing
will bo accomplished at a reduced rate
of interest.

Airplanes Valuable In
Exploiting Resources
Service More Important in Canada
Than in Other Countries
The question of aerial transport of
mail, freight aiul passengers is probably of more vital importance and
interest iu tho future of Canada than
in any oilier country, except Russia,
writes. Ellwood Wilson, president of
The Fairchild Aerial Survey, Limited, in The Financial Post. Wc have
very olarge areas y,-hcro mining and
perhaps other industries could bc
carried on, but'which, would not pay
for the .building o'f railroads, and in
any  case  their  development- cannot
wait until a railrc'ad could b_o_bu.ilI.	
The arooplanc offers a safe and
reasonably cheap means of transportation, wiih rapidity far superior to
lhat of trains. It may be said, however, tliat no un-subsidlzcd transport
line has as yet made money; .all the
European services receive government subsidies, and in the United
States air mail contracts are being
looked to to carry tlio burden of
establishing and operating costs in
the hope that freight aud passenger
services will develop. No line can
be started unless there is some assurance that there will be enough travel
to pay for operating expensed.
Fruit Growing in British Columbia

fruit'growing is of comparatively recent origin, but the development oi
commercial orcharding has been very
rapid, especially during tho last ten
years. The first, apple trees wero
planted about 1850, but not until several years later were numerous trees
planted for commercial purposes, Tho
census of 1891 gave the area devoted
to all kinds of fruit as 6,500 acres; in
1921 the census showed a total,fruit,'
acreage In British C6lumbia of 43,-
569 acres. The most noted fruit district in thc. province is tlie Okanagan
valley, where some of the finest
orchards in the province and in tho
Dominion are to bo found. Tho boxed
apples from British Columbia are in
demand on all the Important markets
in tho British Isles and-Europe.
Pears, plums, peaches, apricots, cherries and small Traits are grown on a

New Coyote Bounty
Word has come from Victoria that
on account of the fact that" so many
chickens and other barnyard stock in
various parts of the province have
been disappearing as coyote food recently, that Attorney-General Manson
had a special order-in-council put
through to increase from-$2 to $5 the
bounty on coyotes. The bounty swill
be paid on the surrender of the pelt
to the government officer. During the
last year coyotes have been unusually
bold and have been helping themselves to whatever took their fancy, settlers have complained.
This -; increased bounty ought to
prove a splendid incentive to some of
our crack shots, who enjoy the sport
and who will be enriched thereby.

The funeral of little Alfred Gausten, who met with a fatal accident
last Saturday, took place on Monday at

Miss Lenora Kehoe and Miss Annie
Gausten have gone to Rock Creek to

pupils from Anarchist Mountain. The
Bridesville. pupils attending the Entrance Examinations, at Rock Creek
are: Freddy Schorn, Nelson McDonald, and Helen Davidson.
The selection of Greenwood men for
the jury empaneled for the recent fatality in Bridesville is meeting with
disfavor here. It is felt that men could
be secured- here and in this case save
the government the unnecessary expense of conveying jurymen ..and witnesses back and forth between Greenwood and Bridesville.
��� Editor's Note���In view of the fact
that the provincial constable was not
available until Wednesday afternoon,
also that an interpreter and a- stenographer had to be brought from Grand
Forks, it was less expensive to hold the
inquest in Greenwood. Jurymen on a
coroner's-inquest within a distance of
three miles do not receive any remuneration.
D. C. McKee's Auction proved a successful one. There was a large attendance, people coming from Bridesville, Beaverdell, Penticton, and other
distant towns. Prices generally were
good, the auction realizing $900, this
being all cash.
R. Forshaw purchased the ranch as
also the blacksmith shop and weigh
���scales, aivdnt'is expected that R. Forshaw, will continue the wood and coal
business lately operated by p. C. McKee. The blacksmith and carpenters'
tools were well distributed, the purchasers securing just what they wanted at reasonable prices. There will be
another auction in Greenwood about
the: month of August, principally
household furniture, Notice will be
given in due course.

The whims of fashion are responsible for many business disasters. The
cotton business has been hard hit, because the women have taken to wearing silk to a great extent and firms
which formerly engaged in the manufacture of hairpins have been in many
cases forced to the wall by reason of
the fact that comparatively few women now have any use for hairpins.

Rusch's Garage, Rock Creek
In the northern part of the province
of Quebec, in a remote paper and pulp
centre where there are a large number
of foreigners among the workers, a
teacher in one of the schools intro
duced the Junior Red Cross in order
to inculcate the health rules among
her pupils. In her class ,she had a
very difficult pupil,"a Russian boy of
ability but who was very ungovernable, and always in the lead of class
mischief.' To her surprise-he at once
took an interest in the Junior cult, and
one day himself suggested that the
boys of the class should start a car-,
pentry shop in which to make toys for
poorer children. So he was given an
empty room that was available, the
necessary tools, and as he was a born
leader was left to.work.out his own
organization. All the boys in that
school have now enrolled in the shop,
- and 'f-the children are making aeroplanes, jumping jacks boats, dolls,
ships and many other toys. The carpenters themselves, acting under the
urge supplied by Peter, have set a
very high standard for workmanship
and, meantime, he himself has become
a "tamed" lad in the school room and
such a disciplinarian among the Juniors that the teacher says "the whole
spirit of my school is changed with
both work and play moving along easily and satisfactorily."
