During the moving picture show
in the Star Theatre, Friday evening last, a presentation was made
to Pte. Schenck. The presentation was made by Wm. C. Arthurs
who said in part:
"Most of you know that we have
chosen this evening to pay public
tribute to one of our boys, who
has returned from the Front. I
refer to Private Clifford Schenck,
as you all know is one of our own
Greenwood boys. He enlisted in
October, 1914, shortly afterwards
going overseas. He Berved through
a lot of heavy fighting iu France
and Flanders, and was wounded
twice, once at Ypres and again at
Courcelette. It was at Courcelette
be received the wound which
caused him to be invalided home,
through going to the assistance of
one of his chums. We were all
very disappointed not to know he
was coming, so that we could have
given him a public reception on
his arrival. However we are taking advantage of the present public
gathering, to present him with a
watch and fob, from the Citizens
of Greenwood as a slight token of
our appreciation of his services to
us and the Empire.''
The following will be engraved
on the watch: To Pte. Clifford
Schenck, from the Citizens of
Greenwood, in appreciation of his
services to the Empire, March 30th,
1917; and that of the fob: The
two engagements where he received
his wounds, Ypres and Courcelette.
Pte. Schenck wishes through the
medium of The Ledge, to tender
his heartfelt appreciation to the
Citizens of Greenwood on their
recognition of his efforts.
Will Re-open Mine
James P6ggi"will start work on
the Big Copper mine in Copper
Camp, about seven miles from
Greenwood. This mine was in
charge of Mr. Poggi all last summer, and as he has secured a lease,
will re-open it as soon as the snow
is gone. Nearly 1800 tons of ore
was shipped from tbis mine to the
B. O. Copper Go's smelter at
Greenwood last year.

Get a Vacant Lot
There is a movement well under
way in Canada to have vacant
ground iu cities and towns put under cultivation, and if this could
be put into operation in Greenwood it would have a most im
portant effect on the cost of living,
and would give a practical outlet
for the patriotism of those of our
men who are unable to enlist or to
subscribe to war loans. The crop
instead of potatoes might be anything suited to this locality. Root
crops would probably be best as
they do not need to be harvested
at any particular time. Information regarding the above movement
can be had from the City Clerk
here.
On The Western Front
In the New York Times the
situation upon the Western front
is expressed with characteristic
ciarity in the statement that "the
Battle of the "Somme is won."
No matter what happens from now
on, whether Hindenburg's retreat
is good German strategy or whether
he is able to launch powerful
counter-offensives, the Battle of
the Soinme, which began last
Dominion Day, has been won by
the British and the French. The
events of the past few days may
properly be considered as putting a
period to the operations under
taken in July. Otherwise we
mu6t assume that the whole war
is one long battle and that no bat
tie can be definitely won until the
war is over. The Battle of the
Somme has hardly ceased for more
than eight months, though there
was a three months' interruption,
due to weather that made the
n-ovement of heavy guns impossible
and blotted out the earth from the
eagle eyes of the airmen. But in
all that time the object of the Allies remained the same; in all that
time the German object remained
unchanged.
The Allies Bought to drive the
Germans out of their trenches and
recapture what they could of occupied territory; the Germans
sought to make the effort so costly
that the Allies would abandon it.
This in plain words was the object
for which the Allies .have been
fighting, their definite immediate
objectives being Bapaume and
Peronne. Both of these towns
have been taken, and a hundred
villages, together with something
more than a hundred thousand
square miles of French territory.
The Germans may reach higher
ground than that between the
Ancre and the Aisne, which they
have al.am.oned, but not such hign
ground as they have already been
forced to give up. Whatever the
Germans may take in the future,
they have loBt what they found
desperately for eight months to
retain.��� Mail and Empire.
the use of  moss  in  honpitaLs  was
still  in    its    experimental    stage.
Now however, since they are considered to be superior to any other
available     absorbent      dressings,
Societies aud  Organizations have
been    formed    throughout   Great
Britain    and    Canada   to   collect
Sphagnum  and prepare  dressings
for use in the various war hospitals.
The Irish  St.   John's   Ambulance
Association under  the  Presidency
of  the    Countess    of    Waterford
created  a  Sphagnum department,
and is supplying over 50,000  moss
dressings per month.      To  show
how rapidly the demand has grown,
Sir Alexander Ogston, M. D.,   the
eminent  military  surgeon,   in an
article in the National Review for
August   estimates    the   probable
number of casualties for this year
and  concludes that at least fifty
million  dressings   should  be prepared, and  clearly  indicates *hat
Sphagnum ia superior to any other
absorbent material.     It is  therefore quite clear  that Canada and
B. C. in particular, with  its large
Sphagnum  resources,   and    many
willing Red Cross Workers should
lose no time iu   ascertaining  what
we can do to provide a share of
these hospital supplies.
Red Cross workers in Eastern
Canada found that certain species
of Sphagnum in the East were
suited for surgical work and began
the preparation of dressings, but
winter came on and all the Sphagnum bogs were buried under snow
so that for the time being no moss
could be collected. Meantime
thev thought of the mild climate
of British Columbia and a communication was forwarded by the
Head Office of the Canadian Red
Cross Society to Mr. John Davidson, F.L.S. Botanical Office, Uni-
versitity of B. C, to ascertain
what species were available for
this purpose, and samples were
forwarded to Prof. J. B. Porter, of
McGill University, who is Secretary of the Sub-Committee on
Sphagnum Dressings. In acknowledging receipt of these, Professor
Porter asks for sufficient quantities
to enable him to make absorbency
tests, as some species are more
valuable than others. The next
mail brought another letter stating
that for the present all Canadian
supplies of Sphagnum dressings
were being held up on account of
freight congestion on the railways
and the serious reduction of cargo
space On transatlantic shipping,
but it is expected thafe these difficulties will soon be removed and
that all our supplies will go forward as before.

that arrived at Vancouver from
the Orient a few days ago on the
Steamship Harold Dollar, and was
brought about 5,000 miles to the
smelter at Trail. This two-car
shipment was from the Hanon
Government Mining Co. of China.
This probably makes a hew record
for long distant shipment of ore
to any smelter in British Columbia
and also to any smelter in the Dominion.
The Virginia Mining company
has installed a crude oil compressor
at the old Lucile Dreyfus mine at
Danville, Wash. Regular shipments of ore which carries good
values in gold and copper are being made.
Practically all the men in the
Centre Star, War Eagle, and Le
Roi mines have been laid off indefinitely. Only about eight remain at the Centre Star and 10 at
the Le Roi.
Rumanian Relief Fund
Sphagnum Moss
The use of Sphagnum moss for
surgical dressings is by no meanB
new, it has been need since time
immemorial. They are said to
have been employed to a limited
extent in the Napoleonic and
Franco-Prussian war; it is known
that the German Army Medical
people were using them before the
war and that they are using them
in large quantities at the present
time. But it is only within the
past two years that the British
Army has adopted tbis form of
dressing,   even in  spring  of 1910
A National Rumanian Relief
Fund has been opened in London,
England, to present Field Hospitals, Motor Ambulances, etc., to
Her Majesty Queen Marie of
Rumania, who has -'.'���; graciously
granted her Royal Patronage to the
Fund.
A ready and generous response
to this appeal will not only alleviate
the sufferings of her gallant troops,
but will also cement the bond of
friendship between Rumania and
Great Britain.
Contributions, marked "National
Rumanian Relief Fund" will be
acknowledged by the Hon. Treasurer, Sir George Anderson, the
Bank of Scotland, 30 Bishopgate,

Louis Mirou is Light House Keeper at
Gargantua, a lonely fishing station and
harbor on the east shore of Lake Superior, some one hundred miles north ot the
Soo. A tourist to whom Louis told the
story of his adventure with the bear has
embodied his narrative in the following
lines.
'Twas h'early morn off Matuainse Point,

Ver' cantious, Louis, for he say���
"Onk' h'is de prime all r���right?
Cause if de gun she's not go off,
Dat bear she's sure to fight."
"He's always ready," he's Onk' say,���
"I nevaire feex heem twice,"
CFor he's been ver' great huntaire
H'am, not like tak' h'advice.)
Dey pass on through de brule,
Ontil de groun'she's higher;
Till Onk' he's git good place for shoot,
H'an he raise hees gun to fire.
Louis he's lag aloh'behiu';
Though he not like for say,   :
He's leetle bit afraid de bear,
H'an' keep safe deestance 'way.
De bear he's stand on hin' feet, so,���
H'an' smell an' look ar-roun'
She's see man wit' gun approache
But brave ! she's stan* her grout.'!
Onk', he's tak one long, good h'aim,
Den pull de trigger, so,���

De shot she's fail to go!
To mak' de matter worse,
Anoder bear is come out
From 'hin' de rock, h'an' look ar-'roun'
For see what's all about.
De bears dey growl so awful mad
H'an' mak' for man h'an' gun;
De cub, he's scairt an' climb a tree:
Don't wait for see de fun.

To Louis he's throw h'up hees h'arm,
H'an shout wit all hees might:���
"Bring me de powder an' de cap,
'Tis de he-bear's gr-reat beeg wile !"
But Louis, he's tink w'at he say,
"Ron ! h'an' save your life !"
So, Louis, he's.hike for de boat
As fas' as he kin ron;

Come apre wit' de gun.

On Up-Grade Again
Silver, which is a large product
of the Coeur d'Alene and British
Colombia mines, advanced to 72 3-8
cents an ounce on March 30, after
a considerable period of sluggish
decline in which it lost more than
5 cents. It was quoted slightly
above 77 cents a month ago.
The decline has been attributed
by experts in the trade to the increase of activity in TJ boat warfare. The sign of recovery is attributed to a restoration, in part,
of confidence in the safety of vessels bearing the metal abroad.
American producers had been
asked to stand some of the expense
of insurance. Knowing of an
urgent demand for the metal, they
refused. It resolved itself into a
question as to who could wait the
longer, says a New York report.
Several influences affect the price
of the metal at this time. Among
three of greater importance are the
interruption of production in
Mexico, which production is the
largest of any conntry in the
world under normal conditions;
the large demand from the belligerent governments for coinage
purposes and to replace the drainage of gold, and the heavy demand
from India, said to result from
great prosperity there. The de*
mand of the warring nations has
been increased greatly, particularly
of Great Britain, which id seven
times that of normal requirements.
There is considerable difference
of opinion as to whether the price
has attained its high level. Some
authorities contend that it is high
enough, while others predict much
higher prices ���Spokesman Review.
