Amateur motion-pictures, reproducing
scenes in full natural colors, were
shown in Rochester, N.Y., for the first
time on July-30th, by George Eastman
to a group of scientists.
The new process, using a three-color
"light .filter" 'and -a -new- film--with
minute cylindrical lenses, is the fruit
of years experimentation. With the
"light filter" and the special film, the
amateur photographer .can make motion pictures which represent the accurate and" brilliant reproduction of
every color arid shade in nature. All
the amateur needs to do is to insert
the color filter in his home movie
camera and put in the special film.
The new film has the side opposite
the sensitive  coating  embossed with
cylindrical lenses so minute as .to. be
-invisible;1     "   T .      "
These small lenses separate the rays
of light which pass through the three
segments of the ��� three-colored "light

Daring Raid on

Former Midway Woman Implicated���
Judd in Republic Hospital in a
Serious  Condition
The, funeral of the late "Daniel J.
McDonald was held from the residence
of his brother, J. A. McDonald, Grand
Forks and thence to the Catholic
"Church on Friday, August 3rd. Rev.
Father A. L. Mclntyre officiating. Ifc
��� was very largely attended, many
friends coming from the Greenwood
district to pay their last respects. The
casket was covered with flowers. The
pallbearers were: D. McPherson, D.

J. C. Boltz and Chas. Gauvreau. - Internment was,in Evergreen Cemetery,
Grand Forks.:-
We wish to ���:��� express our sincere
thanks and appreciation to aii our kind
friends for the beautiful flowers, also
for their acts of kindness and many
tokens of respect and sympathy extended to us in our time of grief in the
loss of a loving husband, father and

early morning's silence was
at about 1 o'clock by pistol
shots and a woman's scream in front of
the local liquor store^ The presence of
mind shown by Mrl' Mellin, Teller in
The Canadian Bank of Commerce, probably saved the Provincial Government
many dollars as had he not given the
alarm the raiders' would have made a
clean get-away.
Ifc appears that Mr. Mellin returned
to town about 12:30 p.m. and after putting away his horse walked up the'
main street* from the north and noticed
a big car parked in front of Thc
Ledge office with the engine running,
and at the same time' he observed a
man standing in the shadow on the
the opposite side of the street,' obviously
a lookout. The Bank official immediately thought a plan was on foot to
hold up the Bank and so hurried round
'the Bank - Building and' up the back
stairs to awaken the other members of
the Staff and Mr. Ken Skilton who was
on the premises and after informing
them of his suspicions Mr. Mellin hur-.
ried down to Constable W. R. Powers
residence and informed him of the
situation. The Police Officer lost no
time in~accompanying him back to the
scene and both men approached the
big car, which was now in front of the
liquor store being loaded by a man with
Government's best procurable Johnny
The driver of the car proved to be a
woman," formerly Muriel Bush, well
known at Midway, who refused the
Constable's command to throw up .her
hands but screamed, which gave the
man who was loading the alarm, with
the result that he dived into the car.
Before reaching the car he was shot
through trie body, and being in a weakened'condition he had no,t strength
enough to hold-, his own revolver, as
Constable Powers observed through the
windshield the injured man's efforts to
use' his gun. Constable Powers commands to surrender were refused al-
though'he emptied his revolver into the
car at various places and the woman
let in the clutch with a bang and the
raiders left town for Grand Fordks at a
breakneck pace.
" It was at first thought that a second
man had taken part, but this is denied by
the woman and the police are of tho
The raiders overlooked the telephone
with the result that the police en route
were notified ���' at' once and the local
Constable followed the raiders car in his
own only to find that they had crossed
the line in the.'direction-of Republic.
G. A. Dawson and John Folson, U.S.
Cusboms Inspectors-upon being advised
that one of the" culprits had been
wounded .made investigations at the
hospital in Republic where'they found
Willis Judd wounded in .the stomach
arid in bad condition. The woman was
found at her home in Republic with a
man named' Rancourt who was later
released at Greenwood after proof
being obtained that he had nothing to
do with the affair.
Sheriff Clemens, Inspectors Dawson
and Folson of Republic and U. S. Customs Officers Tuttle and Fristoe ���' of.
Danville and Provincial Constable G. F.
Killam of Grand Forks made the arrest.
The woman is lodged in, the local
goal and. a full confesion is expected.
Some 7 cases of liquor were stolen
but thrown .out at the, Floyd ranch
where they were-found and brought
back to town by Constable Powers.
The ��� store .was entered through the
front door, the hasp being wrenched off
and the second and third lock opened
with a butcher knife and a large flat
piece of steel. The tools are in thc
possession of the police. ���
As we go to press Constable. Powers
informs us that Judd is showing signs
of improvement and that he is expected
to recover.
Victoria.���Liberals, all over B.C.
have launched such a concerted campaign to keep Premier MacLean in
pliblic life as their leader, that it is
felt here he will be unable to. decline.
In government circles now it is expected the Premier will accept this invitation ancl seek a seat in thc Legislature again. As several seats are understood to have been offered "to him,
there seems to be no obstacle in the way
of the plan to make him leader of the
opposition. ���
So far the Premier has given no indications of his plans, but it is known
that he was not at first desirious of
continuing in public life- after his defeat in Victoria.
The last two weeks, however, have
produced a drive among Liberals of
virtually, every district of the province
to prevent his prospective retirement.
His friends believe he can not avoid
this call. II is-not expected here that
Conservative party leaders will object
to the plan which is been pressed on the
Premier by the Liberal party, as Dr.
McLean's experience ' and-- knowledge
of provincial affairs would be extremely valuable to the Legislature.
On the other hand, .''there appears to
bo no disposition on the part of Liberals here to opose.thc new Conservative cabinet ministers who must receive the endorsement of the voters
of thcir own ridings'in by-elections
after the cabinet is formed. It is expected they will be re-elected by acclamation.
During the week a deal-was completed whereby W. C. Wilson took over

At a practically profitless price.

Human Bones in
Camp McKinney
Burned Shack
Provincial Police Trying to  Clear up
Mystery���Veteran   Prospector   has
Apparently Disappeared
For several weeks the Provincial Police have been working hard to try and
solve the mystery of the finding of human bones in a burned shack owned by
James Grant at Camp McKinney near
It is thought the fire occurred between
ween June 17th and 20th as prior to
these dates the shack was entact according lo forestry men who had occasion
to pass by it about that time. The
shack was known to have been burned,-
but as its owner was in the habit of
leaving on prospecting trips without reporting, the whereabouts of Grant was
not questioned. However, when bones
wero found near .the bed, these were
taken to specialists, who pronounced
them human bones. The most unusual part of the affair is that the skull
and teeth have nofc~been found. In
searching the ashes a watch and a
compass were found by the police.
General belief is that the man whose
bones were found in the remains of the
building; by the police is-Grant. Grant
is weir known in the district and for
some years has been a prospector in
Camp, McKinney district.

London.���Scientists' from twenty-five
countries were told here on July 28 of
the discovery of a "growth substance"
by Dr.-James B. Murphy of New York,
and Dr. Archibald Leitch of London,
which may unlock the whole mystery
of cancer.
The story of the discovery was told
at the International- Conference on
Cancer by Dr. Leitch, who held the 400
delegates in absorbed silence while he
spoke. Whatever, it results in toward
cancer prevention, more than one delegate said, the findings of Drs. Murphy
and Leitch amount to the statement
of a new'biological principle.
They have found it possible to cause
the growth of a tumor known as
chicken sarcoma by injecting a glandular substance from the- bodies of
healthy chickens. So effective has this
substance proved, according to Dr.
Leitch, possesses a "growth-preventing
substance" as well as "growth substance" itself. If Dr. Murphy has been
able to extract the "growth substance"
from tumors, __Dr._Leitch^ex*jlained.-^it-
may be possible some day to extract
also the "growth-preventing substance."
Biological aspects of the experiments also were discussed by' Dr.
Leitch. He explained that a tumor
consists of normal cells stimulated in
a particular way by a particular chemical-substance. It was merely a stimulation which took a long period before it produced a tumor���a fact which,
he said, explains why elderly persons
so often fall" victims to cancer. Dr.
Leitch held out hopes that tumors have
followed injection in ninety per cent,
of the cases. ,
The inference is that some .ferment
exists normally in healthy tissues of
fowls which is capable of causing the
growth. Dr. Murphy has been able to
extract this ferment, or enzyme, by an
electrical process. Backing up his
statement by the results of experiments,
Dr Leitch declared the ferment "produced tumors in fowls with great
regularity and may be regarded as the
essential 'agent.' The 'growth substance' for which we have looked so
long in malignant growths may be
within the * range of experimental investigation." X
Dr. Leitch explained that inasmuch
as the "growth substance" is present
in many normal tissues of the body,
there would have to be a whole new
study of such a growth phenomenon
as the healing of a wound. In the
healing of an ordinary wound, the body
produces a growth of its own which
bears some resemblance to cancer, but
when the wound has healed the growth
stops. In Dr. Lelth's words it would
seem, therefore, that Nature new discoveries may lead to new knowledge
about cancer-producing agents in general, especially those agents which produce human cancer.
Commenting on Dr. Murphy's discoveries, The London Times says editorially:
"A new vista in biology has been
opened to view. The work is still in
a very early stage, but there is no
doubt a new principle has been demonstrated and that the demonstration
rests ori the solid foundation of experimental evidence."
Montreal.���Announcement of the successful candidates for the two free
university scholarships offered by the
C.P.R. have been made by the head
offices of the company here the names
given being, Stanley T. Rudkin, son of
the C.P.R. station agent at Sandon,
B.C., and'Gordon F. Alio, son of a foreman in the Angus, shops, Montreal.
The scholarship entitles, the winners
to a year's free tuition in the faculty
of arts in McGill university, and four
years' tuition in architecture, chemical,
civil, mechanical or electrical engineering, and. are open to employees enrolled on the permanent staff of the
company under 21 years of age and to
minor sons of employees. '   . -
The winners are* determined through
the regular matriculation examinations
held at McGill university and various
other centres throughout the country.
The candidates making the highest
average and complying with the "requirements of admission are awarded
the scholarships. Ten scholarships are
maintained by the Canadian Pacific
Railway at McGill university a few
of which are re-opened each year.
Mr. and Mrs. Rudkin and family
lived in Greenwood a number of years
ago when Mr. Rudkin held the position
of C. P.R. agent.
A Kindly Act
A curate who had newly arrived in the
parish was very anxious that, he should
look 'his smartest while conducting
his first service. But when he arrived
at the church he found that the vestry
contained no. mirror. He sought the
sexton, an old Scotsman, .and asked in
low nervous tones, "Er, McDonald," do
you think you could get me a glass?"
The sexton, with a shake of his head,
disappeared returning after a few minutes carrying something under his coat.
He drew forth a large black bottle
saying at the same time, "Ye maunna
let on aboot it, for I got it as a special,
favour, an' I wadna.hae got it a* if.I
hadna told 'em it wis fur'you!"

A Washington farmer is travelling
all over the eastern states in a house
made out of a Douglas fir tree mounted
on a truck.
When Mr. Wade moved to the State
of Washington a number of years ago
he was impressed by the immense size
of the Douglas fir trees of the northwest. As his friends in.the east questioned . his statements ;he made iri
decided to build a house in a) log cut
from one of them and take it back east
to show his friends that the trees were
just as big as he said.
Going into the forest near his home
he cub a Douglas fir tree that was 311
feet high and more than nine feet iri
diameter. It was so large that he had
to take a log about 20 feet from the
butt in order to get one eight feet in
diameter, which was as large as he
would-be .permitted _to_ travel with; on
some highways. The tree yielded nine
more ^logs besides the one used by Mr.
Wade each 22 feet long, and contained
in all some 50,000 board feet of lumber,
or about two carloads. The 8x16 foot
log itself, if it had been sawn into
boards would have produced 6,580
board feet of high grade lumber, nearly
all heart wood���enough to build a four-
roomed house.
Mr. Wade named his log home "Columbus", for by counting the "annual
rings of growth he discovered that the
tree was 434 years old when cut in 1926,
"born" the'year Columbus discovered
America. By the time the first settlers
moved in to Pennsylvania, the fir had
attained a diameter of five feet and
was still growing. When the declaration of independence, settlers moved
into Pennsylvania the tree was 284
years of age; In 1863 when the civil
war was iii progress, this tree had
become a giant and was 371 years old.
It took Mr. Wade and two other men
five weeks to hollow out the log used
in making his home. First they bored
a two"'inch hole through the centre of
the log, then they used a blow torch
and burned this hole into a diameter of
four feet. They were then able to use
wedges and chip the heart-wood out in
chunks. When they go.t near the sap-
wood ring at the- edge, they finished
the job with adzes, smoothing the interior of the log as thew worked.
The interior of the log is. completely
"The Truth," No.'s 1 and 2, published
at Donald, B. C, on Saturday, June
2nd and 30th, 1888, are two interesting
specimens of early journalistic effort in
British Columbia. They are prized
possessions of W. F. Van Antwerp's
and are probably the only copies in
existence. The once thriving city even
is uninhabitated now only by ghosts
and memories. "The Truth", as its
name implies is written in a style that
has passed, the free and easy style of
the Western camp.
: One of the interesting items, in the
first number which does not contain
the name of the editor or publisher, is
the following: '.'.���'.
"Truth's typographical imperfection,
it must be confessed, are numerous.
It was printed from a handful or two
of very old type)<a borrowed from the
Calgary Herald, one page at a time on
a nut-cracker press. Its editor was
broke, owed three weeks board, and had
no standoff for liquid; inspiration.
Hence, none of its articles are inspired,
all them of sober truth. If its punctuation does not suit, the reader can
shove in colons,, semi-colons, exclamations and interrogations vvhere they
should go, none of these points happened to be in the type borowed. If
its literary style is not classical, it can
only be attributed to the fact that its
editor worked on the': Calgary Herald
before coming to Donald and had to
put in type Acting mayor Orr's special
messages to the City Council. If its
orthography is not- Websterian, it is because the nearest approach to an Unabridged in the sanctum was a copy of
a C. P. R; Guide to Settlers printed in
German. Then, again, if it has been
too familiar in designating the boys, it
is because it had no cap ems to ��� mister
them. Finally, if the subject does not
suit, blame Cassiar."
After reproducing this introduction,
it is alright to state that the paper is
an eight page one, the size being 6%
inches by 10 inches. There are two columns to a page, and then, as in more
modern publications, there is some degree of prominence given to advertising ^whiskey. In those days it gene-

The first pages o.f both the numbers

Apparently Donald was a lively spot,
so lively that some poor unfortunates
found going very rough. A short paragraph under the caption of Solemn
Truths states: "Coroner G. E. Manuel

fits of despondency. Truth refrains
from giving names or particulars, not
wishing to be a record of the dead's

her family, ended her life because gossip���had cut her off from those who
were dearest in all the world to her.
Those who murdered first the happiness of a woman, and then the life,
went scot free. No punishment in this
world, unless they have consciences,
can touch them. But we believe that
when the final judgment comes, those
who spread the" gossip which killed good
names and happiness���and life���will
meet the same punishment as that visited upon the sons of Cain.
Dr. Howard Eager, a Baptist minister
in Baltimore, told this story, which is
an Italian legend: In the old days, a
peasant confessed to a priest that he
had slandered an innocent man. The
priest said to him, 'For your penance
do this now: Take a bag of chicken
down. Go to every yard in the town
and drop one bit of down into each
garden. Do not miss one yard. When
you have finished, return to me. The
sinner believed his punishment was
light. With his bag of down he made
the circuit of the village and carefully
dropped one soft feather into each garden. Then he reported to the priest
saying:   'I have.done penance.'
" 'No, my son,'���replied the old Abbe.
'You will not have done .your penance
until you take the bag, go-again on
your,.rounds, collect every feather you
have dropped, and bring it here to me.
The gossip protested that it would be
impossible: he could not find the bits
of down in a lifetime; many of them
had blown far away. 'So ifc^is with
gossip,' replied the old priest. 'It is
easily dropped. But never again, no
matter how hard you try, can you gather back the words you have so
thoughtlessly scattered.'"���Ex.
Much has been said recently about reforestation in B.C. The present is the result
of natural re-forestation when the human
hazard was not present to defeat nature.
Natural re-stocking of cut over lands
is now going on, as may be seen almost everywhere, and. nature will again re-establish the
forests if only fire is kept out.

concluded a business mission to
Canada, stated that he had bought
8,000,000 bushels of wheat ln Canada, or about hp.lf of Japan's total

Japan got more for its rice than
Canadian wheat cost Jn thetir market, hence the present purchase.
He said, too, that Japanese were
eating more wheat food's and adapting themselves to the stronger diet

Th<? construction of the Field-Golden Highway
presented some very difficult engineering problems
on account of the steepness of the slopes of the side
hills. A' good deal of excavation had to be done in
solid rock The probable cost of the new highway on
account of the difficult topography encountered is
estimated at $24,000 per mile.
There will be inaugurated this summer a three-
day circle tour from Banff and Lake Louise, covering
the first day the most picturesque section of tho
Banff-Windermere road, the second, the section between Radium Hot Springs to Emerald Lake by way
of Golden and Leanchoil, and returning the third day
to Banff and Lake Louise.
It should only be a short time now before the
whole of Canada's mountain world is opened up'to
the motorist. From Golden to Revelstoke is the last
uncompleted link of the first great transcontinental
motor road. The distance in all is ninety miles, but
short perfect roads have already been built from town
to town on the route. There is an old railway grade
available for a distance of about ten miles, It is
estimated that theie is only fifty-seven miles of road
remaining to complete direct connection across
i Canada.
