Jackie Coogan in "Old Clothes"
The love of an old son of Abraham
for a young son of Erin and tl\e love of
both of them for a lovely girl is the
essence of the story of "Old Clothes,"
Jackie Coogan's new Metro-Goldwyn
production, which comes to the Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, July 16th.
With each succeeding release, Jackie
Coogan unfolds a new side of his
genius, and unless you see the youthful star in "Old Clothes" you have
never seen the real Jackie Coogan.
Jackie is ably assisted in this homely
and human story by Max Davidson,
Lillian Elliott, Alan Forrest, James
Mason, and Williard Mack wrote the
story especially for Jackie.

The New Proprietor
Renovates Pacific Hotel
In recent issues the editor has had
the pleasure of making comment on
the increased activity and improvements in the city and one of the most
prominent and outstanding of these
features is the Pacific Hotel.
In April bf this year Mr. J. H.
(Doc) Goodeve assumed the management and ownership of this old-established hostelry and the favorably
comments then heard on all sides that
the right party had taken hold of this
place have been 'more than justified
up to, date and this paper is only voicing the wishes of the community in
hoping that a substantial return will
accrue to the geniai proprietor for the
trouble and expense incurred by him
in renovating-and improving this hotel,
which can now lay claim for service
and accommodation superior to anything in the district.
Structural alterations have provided
a commodious office, the large barroom has been transformed into a
splendidly-appointed drug store with
ice-cream service installed at the rear,
the former sitting-room is now a snug,
lounge and pool-room, while the din-'
ing room and lunch counter remain as
before. Upstairs a ladies rest-room
is provided, and bedrooms re-furnished
and re-decorated. Excellent cooking
and meals service at moderate prices
are one of the chief "features and the
personal attention shown to guests in
the .house is easily judged by hearing
the' opinions of many who have had
occasion to stay there. The re-painting of the entire front of the building
gives a . pleasing and outstanding
effect and the interior lighting will
always call attention of night travellers.
Mr. Goodeve is making application
for recognition by the Automobile Club
of British Columbia and the American
Automobile Association which will
mean that information in the form of
pamphlets and road maps will be
available for tourists.
It is indeed a pleasure for the writer
to observe how- popular the Pacific
Hotel is becoming and it is fairly safe
to say that anyone coming into town
can be located there if enquired for.
The local business men can be noticed
keeping appointments there with
travellers and old-time residents as
well as people from the immediate
district already figure .the hotel as
their headquarters.
- Messrs. McDougall and Michener
were tho contractors for building alterations, painting and decorations
and the '-Restmore Manufacturing
Company, of Vancouver, througlrtheir
local agents, T. M..Gulley & Co., supplied the new bedding and some of. the
furnishings.

The Message Of Tke Bells
Canada, which in its sixty- years as a eonfedeniied Dominion, lias
established more than one world record of-worthy achievement,. placed
another lo ils credit on tlie anniversary of its Diamond Jubilee when,
througli lho greatest linking up of radio broadcasting stations ever attempted,
lhe ceremonies at* the national capital were'thrown into the air aiul carried
to lho'uttermost, parts of the Dominion, aiid listened, to by hundreds of
���thousands of people from Prince Edward Island to British Columbia.
The.achievement was not only spectacular but well worth-while. Direct
from the Houses'of Parliament, over a network of telegraph and telephone
wires, to a lotal of twenty-three broadcuslng stations, the* messages of His
Majesty lhc King and the nation's leaders were carried, interspersed wllh
tho singing of patriotic songs by. groat choirs, and the thrilling tones of the
bells of the wc'iulerl'ul carillon Installed in the Victory Tower at Ottawa.
For the moment thc farthest' east ami Lho farthest, vest, and all the
intervening torritory/was in instant and common cocmnuniou. Distance was
annihilated,, geographical'barriers'rendered of* no account. The heart ���throbs
or the mil ion, sounded In the national capital, were heard'and felt throughout
the length and breadth of the land. It was a union in spirit and sentiment,
as well as in fact, undreamed of by the Fathers of Confederation.
Amazing as an. engineering feat, it was still .more wonderful ��� as a
demonstration of tiie national- unity of the Canadian people. It was an
unanswerable reply to. all those doubting souls who hare declared that, with
ilH complexity of racial, religious geographical and economic problems,
Canada could never become a united people. Canadians everywhere felt a
thrill of national pride-as they listened to the message of the bells from
their national capital.   '.'*. ''
Tlio message of-.the bells was, however, not for Canada alone, but for<
cho whole world. Tlie inscription on thc. largest bell reads: "This dariHon
was installed by authority of Parliament to commemorate tlie Peace of 191S,
and to keep in remembrance the service and sacrifice of Canada in, the Great
War," while around the rim of the bell are the. words: "Glory to God in tlio
Highest and on Earth Peace, Goodwill toward men."
In the Great War, Canada fought not for herself -alone, but for all the
world, for the maintenance of civilization and liberty ...everywhere,-far justice
and the right. In the great Victory Tower from wliich the bells ring but their
message is located the Peace Memorial Chamber wherein on an altar rests
thc liook o'f Remembrance containing the names of the, more than sixty
thousand Canadian soldiers who made the supreme "sacrifice for Canada and
the world.   Jt is a great monument, not to war, but to peace.
In his beautiful-description of the Tower, the Memorial Chamber, ancl the
Carillon, Premier Mackenzie King emphasized the idea underlying it'all, and
in,his concluding words, after referring:to tho Angel's song to tho shepherds:
"Glory to God in the Highest and ou Earth Peace, Goodwill toward men." he
said: "Back lo the skies* It returns at noon today,'not the echo of a mystical
strain heard on a Judean moo'r, but the voice of a nation iu thanksgiving and
praise Which will sound over land-'Und sea to the uttermost parts of the
earth." .       o      ,.
That is the Message of the Bells���a message from this.young, virile
Dominion to'all lands and all peoples, a message of Peace ami Goodwill.
That is the Message.of.the Bells,���a.message rung out from their national
eapitat'lo the people of Canada, a message calling them to continued patriotic
service io' a Canada at peace at home and with the world, a message urging
tho cultivation of a spirit of goodwill to all, a message from the bells'.in which
lot it.be hoped, all old suspicions,'rancors,-aud feelings of ill-will will be
dllenced ancl all racial, religious and political frictions drowned.
That is the Message of-the Bells,���a message to all 'who make Canada
their home, irrespective of the land of-their, birth, to render deep clevottcm,
patriotic service ancl, Avhen needed, self-sa'criflco io the Dominion, to show
goodwill each to his neighbor, to co-operate together for the common good
and Ihe. future peace, progress and prosperity of Canada. .
Scarcity Of Beef Cattle .
Reported That There-will Be a Cattle
Shortage in Saskatchewan This
Year
A scarcity of beef cattle is likely In
Saskatchewan this year, the experts
say. The United Farmers of Ontario

sand carloads, as compared with 200 j
last year, and the opinion of cattle
men is that Saskatchewan may not be
able to furnish even tho small, consignment sent out last. year. "Up io
tlio end of April Canada exported S,-
000 head of cattle to Great Britain,
compared with 29,000 last yoar. while
hog shipments to the United States
for the samo four months aro 100,000

the Department of Colonization and
Development. Canadian Pacific Railway, gave a very interesting address
ul Winnipeg recently, in which ho
outlined the work that Is being carried on by this organization. Ho produced figures showing thai a vast
amount of work has been accomplished since the Inception of the undertaking in 1919. Thu total value of llie
land and equipment colonized to dale
amounts to approximately $20,000,000,
of lhal amount $10,000,000 represents
tho land.. ��3,000,000 is represented by
chattels, and $.1,000,000 additional
buildings provided by Uie land owner.
"Wo have spent a considerable time
io endeavor lo find out what was the
actual value of an agricultural family
to Canada," .��ald Col. Dennis, "and wo
aro able to show from government returns that fhe value of a family, consisting of Ave, to the mercantile and
industrial life of Canada amounted to
$l,E��8o per annum, that is covering a
budget of what they need In the way
of clothing, shoos, etc. We also went
to some trouble to Jincl out what a,
Tamily of lho same size is worth to'
a transportation, company, and we ascertained that, a family of five adjacent to a railway, whose budget was
thp amount 1 have mentioned amounted lo $716 per annum in transportation.
"It is a matter of simple figuring
and does not need any mathematician
to make it perfectly clear to the business interests of -Canada what tho results will ultimately be if we increase
the movement of our agricultural'tam-
Hies from the small numbers we arc
now able to got to a wide margin.
The smaller places particularly in
the West have a big interest in this,
becauso every 10 families mean to the
merchants in that town $"15,000 per annum for supplies which the merchant
furnishes. The question of what it
means to the transportation companies-appeals very strongly to tho
executive of both railways, because
we liave lliese two companies recruiting the people that we cau -absorb,
placing them on the land, and giving
Hio.m attention after we . get. them
here. These departments are costing
tlio railways large sums, of money,
ancl I do' not think it is unfair to say
tliat the.people of Canada as^a whole
do not appreciate what this moans to
lliem in Immediate returns. It is true
we obtain Lho benefit, derived' from
the transportation of these people,.but
this is a small item compared to the
benefit to Canada generally.
"We have compiled figures, which
show that the C.P.R. expended $70,-
000,000 In colonization and development of Western Canada, and t.liat
sum ls in excess of the lotal sum
which has beeu expended by thc Dominion Government and further considerable expenditures arc being made

Flying Is Easy
Outlook Writer Points Out Comforts
and Advantages qf Avis-Jon
Flying is easier, more comfortable,
quicker and cheaper Ihan any other
means of transportation, writes
Harold A. Holbrook 5:i The Outlook

"Lindbergh has killed the bogy of
American aviation���fear," continues
The Outlook ai tide. "He has accomplished in thirty-six hours what
ten years of speech-making""hnd $.10,-
O00,000V of investment, have failed lo
accomplish. He has. sold aviafiou to
ihc American public."
In supporting his contentions of
fhe advantages and safety of flyiug,
Mr. Holbrook writes: "One cannot say
what flying is like because it is Quite
unique. One can only say that it is
better than a. boat because tliere is
no regular rolling, bettor than an-automobile because there are no jounces

Salt Essential For Horses
Rarely   Enough   in   Food   to   Supply
Their Needs
Salt is a recognized necessity for
cattle and sheep, but many farmers
aro more or less .careless in providing it for horses and otlier ���work stock.
Thero is rarely sufficient salt in an
animal's food to supply all its needs
in this direction, even though it may
manifest no especial craving for salt.
Recent investigations of sweating, indicate that salt has an important
function in the* body, ln addition to
its digestive use.
Tt is 'well known that sweat is produced iu an effort to cool off t ho body.
Water, which is the principal component of sweat, requires a deal of
heat to cause its evaporation. This
water ls removed from, the blood by
the sweat glands. ' Tho amount of
sweat produced by a human being in
a few hours may be nearly -1 quarts���
an amount about equal to' the blood.
Tim investigation mentioned developed tho fact that tho water taken
from lho blood by the sweating process is replaced by a fluid r flowing
rrom iho muscles into the blood current. Thc important discovery was
that the muscles can deliver up the
fluid'only in combination with-salt,
ancl, as tliere is a certain minimum
amount of salt to "which, rhe "muscles
tenaciously cling, it is important that
the animal should have free access to
salt. Even -if the working, sweating
animal is well supplied with water, it
will be unable to sweat, -and, conse-

Dividing Line Between  Life Process of Plants and Anirtials
In his many writings and lectures
to learned societies,. Sir Jagadis
Ghunder Lose, of India, has already
explained, and in a measure popularized, the results of hi., investigations
into plant life. Briefly, lie' has demonstrated that thero is no dividing
line between the life process bf.
plants and lhat of animals, aud that
plants havc a nervous system and a
physiological organization whicli are
in all important -respects similar lo
those of animals.
By a series of amazingly delicate
experiments, rendered possible by an
electrical apparatus which lie himself
has Invented for the purpose, ho
has shown how. the plant responds
like tho animal, to external stimuli;
how il can be depressed and elated,
hurt and healed, caused to faint and
bo revived, all but killed by a poison
and revived by an anlidoto;- in fact
mado lo behave very much as a frog
or even a man in liko circumstances.
'These experiments led lo the conclusion thai, the plant, like the animal, musl have something which may
be called a heart, some propulsive
organ which keeps lip the flow of its
juice or sap, as the heart does that of
tho blood in the animal body; and
this, too, was finally located by ��� an
electric probe, its movements record-
o'n a galvanograph.
AVhen these experiments'were first
reported, a certain incredulity was
expressed, and thc results seemed
fantastic and -uncanny, in reality
they are in line with thc growing-
scientific tendency lo presume the
unity of all life and to' discover life
in many substances supposed lo be
inorganic. By his persistehce In his
researches and his resourcefulness
In devising new and newer experiments, Sir Jagadis has fairly beaten
the sceptics out of tho field and won
the recognition that is due to him as
a pioneer in a new and most fertile
field-of research.

Parents Very Frequently

If 9i per cent, of tho young hopefuls
whom fond parents consider 'cnibry- '���
onic Padercwskis drop by lho wayside
before the third grade la reached, the
fault lies mainly with those same fond
parents in tho opinion ch Nancy Armstrong,' writing in tho July issuo of
"The .Musical Observer."
"My best sight readers,'' say.. Miss
Armstrong, "have becn In (hc family
where the mother and governess did
not know music. My pupils from six-
years ancl older, of average mentality,
wlio do not have supervised practice
have gone far ahead of thoso who
have help at each practice period."
"Miss Armstrong points out lhat as
the parents usually expect some results after the first few lessons- tho
child is oftou taught pieces simply by
note. Shc says, "the longet a child is
taught by imitation the more diflicult
it is to teach him to read music, as
ho has learned that he can play without bothering about thc notes- and tlie
attention remains where it was at
first focused, on tho hands and keys
and much lesson tlmo is required to
undo this and train him to watch the
notes, and gain the touch system."

the gods. Jinm Touno, settled his peo-.
pio iu Japan and founded the royM

other wioldcr of-the Japanese scepter since, is his direct descendant. In
all history there Is'nothing else like
this. The Egyptian dynasties ��� were
mostly short-lived. The Chinese imperial houses came and went! The
whole series of Uouian emperors lasted brief periods compared .with IhU
Japanese line. Tlio English, French,

To the Editor,
The Greenwood Ledge,
Greenwood, B.C.
Sir;���
We beg to ask for your
sympathy and assistance in drawing
attention to the necessity of conserving
the Wild Flowers, of B.C., many of
which have been eradicated in certain
localities through the picking of entirely unnecessary quantities. Though
at present they bloom in large masses
in many places there is a danger of
their following in the steps of the
Bison and Carrier Pigeon .and disappearing altogether.
We are not a club or organized
society but merely a nuinber of private individuals who take an interest
in this matter. We have the backing
and also the assistance they can give
us of the Daughters of the Empire, the
Native Daughters of B.C., the Women's
Canadian Club, the Kumtuks Club and
of the Automobile Club of B.C., all of
whom recognizes the charms ^which the
wild flowers add to the scenery of the
Province."
It has been found necessary in the
neighbouring State of Washington,
and away across the Continent in the
State of New York, to pass legislation
for the preservation of the Flora and
in the British Empire such widely separated places as the State of Victoria
in Australia and the Province of Natal
in South Africa have passed similar
laws.
In Great Britain the Government
forbids the plucking of any flower or
green thing in the new forest in
Hampshire.
We are imformed by members of the
B. C. Legislature that there will be
little difficulty in passing the necesary
Act if it can be shown that there is
a demand for it throughout the Province. We believe that this demand
exists and it is to give expression to it
that we ask your assistance.   -   '
The flowers most in need of protection are the Wild Lilly (Erythronium),
the Lady Slipper (Calypso) and the
Dogwood (Cornus).
. Your obedient ��� servant,
I am, Sir,
CHARLES H, BARBE.
