Greenwood Ledge Suspends
With this issue the final chapter is being "written in the -publication
of Thc Greenwood Ledge, which from this date will suspend publication.
To one who has grown up in the community, has been so kindly
treated and has known the residents so intimately, this step has not been
taken without much careful consideration. But business conditions have
forced this action on the part of the publisher, who has already overstayed the period justified by the financial returns, and although loathe
as we have been to fold our tent and bring the career of Thc Ledge to
an end we can evade the situation no longer.
In laying down the quill that has so closely kept touch with our good
friends of-the town and district and bidding adieu to our great family of
readers, we wish to take this opportunity of thanking the great many
business and personal friends who have been so loyal and did much to
make our residence in Greenwood the pleasure which it has been.
Although leaving; the community, our publishing days in Greenwood will
ever remain among the most happy of our life.
���In suspending publication of The Greenwood Ledge we have made
��� . arrangements with The Grand Forks Gazette whereby that live Boundary
, weekly will be'sent to all subscribers of The Greenwood Ledge for the
unexpired portion of the year for which subscription is paid. The
Gazette is already widely read throughout the Boundary district, keeps
close touch with Boundary matters, and readers of The Ledge will undoubtedly find its place in the home well filled in future by The Gazette.
Subscribers of The Ledge who are already subscribers of The Gazette
will have their subscriptions extended for a corresponding period.
To those of the district who in the past have been sending in their
newsy budgets and making] our columns so interesting, we would say
that we are sure that The Grand Forks Gazette will be equally pleased
to receive them.       '     "

The District Schools' Track Meet in
Midway, held under the auspice's of the

interesting event (No. 41) of. the day
was the boy high jump. Norwegian

with "Miss Frances Benzies -as teacher,
received 154 points and will-have the
honor of holding the Bank of Commerce Challenge Cup for another year,

We all regret to hear that The Ledge

nearly a quarter of a century is ceasing
its operations here. I always considered the Ledge one of. my best friends.
Then to, the editor, Mr. Smith, took
such a great interest in the welfare of
children of the school. Many a time
has he favoured us in advertising purposes. He also permitted us to.have
the school notes appear in the Ledge*
weekly, The Ledge will certainly be
missed by all. Lastly, we all here express our thanks to Mr. Smith and
wish him as well as Donald and Mrs.
Smith much health and prosperity in
their new field of endeavour.

The following item from Olympia,
Wash., will be of interest to Sportsmen

"Classed as one of the important
last session of the Legislature is the
amendment to the license provisions
raising the state alien - hunting and
fishing license from $10 to $25, Charles
R. Maybury director of the department
of fisheries and game, declared on May
the 8th.
'"The spread between the, resident
and alien licenses has been unfair,
$7.50 as against $10, Maybury said, He
expects thatJ. the ^advance in price, .will
not. only remove the discrimination but
prevent a lot of undesirables from running rampant through the fields and
covers during the hunting season.
Before securing a license an alien must
^produce a permit issued by the Department of Licenses, granting him the
"right to carry firearms."
In British Columbia the fishing
licence is $10 for the season, or $1 per
Victoria���Plans for the opening up of
vast,.mineral area in British Columbia
to prospectors with an expeditureothis
year of $100,000 on mining trails, were
. shaped by Hon. WV.A. Mackenzie, minister of mines, at a lengthy conference
with district mining engineers last week,
This will be the biggest program ever
undertaken in a single season to expose the mineral wealth of the province
to systematic examination.
One of the most important projects
is in the Kamloops mining district and
is designed to facilitate development in
the Coquihalia area.
H. G. Nicholls, engineer at Kamloops,
suggested a trunk trail from Mile 23 on
the Hope-Princeton trail, north over
the divide at the head of Sowqua creek
to Jessica connecting with the south
fork to Ladner creek and continuing
over the divide to Anderson river and
thence to the Cariboo road near
Boston bar.
Later it is hoped to build,a trail on
the west bank of the Fraser from
Keefers up the valley of the Nahatch-
lat river and over the divide to Lillooet

Oakalla Jail, a man--who has played a
long and important part in the development of British Columbia severs his
connection with the public service.
Mr. McMynn for more than thirty
years filled many important offices in
the province. Old timers remember him
as government agent in the Boundary
country when Phoenix���now no longer
existing���had a population of 4000 and
was considered to be one of the busiest
little towns on the continent; and when
Greenwood was at the peak of its picturesque activities.
Then later he was transferred to
the prison service, and still later was
created superintendent of the provincial police, an office which he later relinquished to accept the wardenship of

Toronto.���A correspondent' writes to
Bride Border of the Mail and Empire
saying:: "More power to your elbow
when you attack that horrid habit introduced into Canada from the United
States of taking the folk into the right,
and; as someone else puts it, 'parking'
the knife. One correspondent speaks
of eating peas with a foik���well what
else could one do; but I don't take my
fork in "niy right hand to do it."
Another habit she attacks is that of
advertising "homes" for sale. "We read
of a home for sale, or lent, inspite of
the fact that you cannot build a home
with bricks and mortar, and it is not a
home until you aie living in it and
make it such," she writes.

Against Prohibition
In the Houseof Commons during a
debate on prohibition, a member of
parliament asked "Does the mover of
,the motion know that during the South
African War 50 per cent, of the teetotallers in a famous Scotish Regiment
died. You may think this is an exaggeration, Mr. Speaker, but I knew the
man who died." - ' .
In Thc Wrong Train
A drunk man who had just left a
train he had boarded in error entered
another. As he sat down a clergyman,
who happened to be in the same carriage, remarked:
"Young man, you are going to perdition."
"In the wrong train again," he replied, as he jumped out.

For the past seyen years Ben Bernie and his
orchestra have been featured at the-Hotel Roosevelt
in New York, one of the best and most widely known
hostelries of the Metropolis. The Ben Bernie music
made the Roosevelt Grill the favorite rendezvous
of dance lovers, youns and old.  Ben Bernie and his
Orchestra are also exclusi\e Brunswick recording
artists and are featured by tliat company wherever
phonograph records are played.
Ben Bernie's music is distinguished for the
ingratiating rhythm of his orchesti ations and the
symphonic overtunes applied to syncopation,", It is
pre-eminent among the ' new jazz" orchestras for
the quality of its music Ben Bernie's orchestrations
are arranged with the greatest of caie and artistry,
and are played by an aggregation of artists each of
whom is an outstanding master of his medium.
Unrivalled in its, versatility, the Ben Bernie
Orchestra offers, in addition to the familiar popular
tunes, symphonic jazz renditions of classical symphonies. The :Ben. Bernie arrangement-of7 "Sche-
hrezade" presents in syncopated form one of the most
colorful of moaern symphonies, striking a balance
between the unresponsible gaiety of jazz and the
austere solemnity of the classics/and appealing with
equal force to lovers of the olo and the new in music. ���"*��� ;
