THE, NINETEEN-   IIUNDRI'.D, AND
NINETY-NINE.
Tlie people ol this city aiidn siir-,
louiulwig'" country were, told a , few
weeks ago that there are a,ooo simple ioal miners in. the Crow's Nest'
valley. 'Ihis .by a gentleman , who
claimed to be one of thc 2,000 simples, l^it leaving' him out' of th*;
eoifitt/ there still remains, according
toliis statement, 1,999 simple coal
miners in the valley.
There is more than ouc meaning l<,
be placed upon that word simple,
and judgi.ig from the kind of demagogic political clap-trap .that has
been doled out to llicsc 1,999 simple-
'eHows of L\te, it'will ,Uake no great
' flight' of the inia'giina'tion to arrive 1 ,
hi wliich meaning is really intended
by the use of that doi(blc-b'a'rrcled
expression.
Some people seem to have a distinct feeling or idea that these coal
miners, the men,who delve in the
1-owe's of thc earth to bring, forth
the latent force which, after liing
■brought to the light and subjected
to the* process of combustion. keeps
so much of the machinery of the
world in motion, are' people built
upon a different mental and moral
plan from their, fellows who (iarc 01:-
cupittd in other vocations of life.
Some people address them as
though' they were the only people .'n
the world who -are wholly honest,
uud are therefore the, prey of all the
• dishonest people. This class of individual tells these- supposedly ignorant, simple-minded; miners that the
only way they can hope to secure-all
• that hclotigs to them is to arnay
themselves unitedly against ' everybody else. And while these olljects
of the solicitude of their professed
friends are  being  told  these' things,
. other , people * arc lioldiii'g up -lily-'
' "white hands that never knew the
pivssurc of a pick handle, and claiming to be only one  of 2,000    simple
• miners' engaged in: digging coal and
making coke;' thus lending some color
to the statement'of the other fellow
that eveo-h'ody -except' he  who    digs
"with a"^iek"^'inoTrg~tiir^bIaTk~niia-"
Jnonds of tlie earth is really tinctured ■ with a* dissembling' dishonesty
which has evil 'designs upon them,
and would lead them astray.
The' simplicity is not all on lli«
side of the miner, no more than is
the hone-sty, or the want of honesty,
TMert may have been a, time when
ihc.-miner was an Ijgnorsgit and consequently prcjudicicd individual, but
it has long since disappeared. Tlit*
miner of today reads and thinks a
j,reat deal,for himself, and knows
. ranting, uiircasona'lilc sophisty 01
fulsome, transparent todyisin at
first sound, and estimates them at
their true value.
To make a long story sliort, Uic
present-day miner is very much like
the' present-dny nnyliody else. As ii
class of people they arc like! oilier
classes. Honest lovers of fair play
nnd justice, desiring fair treatment,
and willing to accord to eveiybody
else the same treatment, 'f ther: is
tiny difference in this rcRp.nl nl love
ttl f.Ui' play, it must bo accorded to
the people, be they miners or workers in other vocations, who, through
lives of loi I havt learned 'liy the
hardships of toil to do for and share
with other.! lho results of their doing'. The rich mnn puts pen to paper, thaws a check upon an account,

Of course the Ledger likes these
'ittle tokens ol appreciation,' but n
must, not forget, lhat it is liot en-
titled to more- -tli'an' a' very small
share of lhe credit so generously ita'-
slowed upon it. It could not write
deicrijitions of ilower beds- and lawns,
o{ climHiiiig vines and blushiivg roses
if there were none to dcscrill-.t.
To the patient, wfatchful' care, the
toil aiul tronlble of the lover's,' of"
(lowers, liV'longLs more credit than
belongs to the lounging writer who
saunters *-about enjoying these fine
'Ihiiigrs made possible by,others, and,;
transferring a small portion bf his
pleasure, lo paper that others migju
know that such things exist in Feruie to ,lij enjoyed by other loafers
with a,fondness for. the things ol
beauty, the Units1 of the toil of other liaKds than"his own.' ■   ' .
Wlio would not grow a little poetic after having lived for >six ycn:rs* in

iwr vividly the rocks, the slumps, .tho.

j-.b"Ie to See so mla'.uiy flowcjry evidences of rclini.ng taste as can now Ik
, seen in ti/bnosL -ahty pairt of wfliatl-wari
so receiilly a wilderness.
The hcait of thc Ledger is ' maib
glad by these things, lijut the greater credit lielon'gis to tliose who have
made gjlad the waste places, and "to
the owners, as is meet, conies the

AMONG "THE ADVERTISERS.
AGNES BEANS CAMERON.
Western Hoine -Montlily.
Perliaps' it' is weslcrn partiality,
but to my way of thinking, Agnes
Dean Cameron, Of Victoria, was the
most striking woman at the convention. All tin. west is* familiar with
the story of how she incurred ' the
wraith of the school "(/oard'of Victoria*
lie-cause she,.made them appear ridiculous,-aiul how, in sheer spite, they
suspended her certificate as a teacher
foi three years., Before the convention was over, many, a woman, who
had come lb it rather prejudiced
aguinst her, sais, V'What mad folly
could possess a school ''board to- let a
woman like that go when the}''might
have -had her to loach llieir children?"" •" _".        ■ ,      ' '    ••     '*
Those who know her well*;in   that
.capacity., say—tliat slie_is_a_lenchef,
-born in thc purple, and J can well be-',
lieve it. In addition to ■ teaching,
however,. she has for years done
newspaper work, and every ■ practical
newspaper woman recogiii/ctl in her
at once .the clcftiichLs that gjo-lo> majkc
success, in that calling,    .
Apart' from her ability as a writer
and teacher, she . is (ill exceptionally
fine public speaker!* Her voice, full
and resonant, is uiuler perfect control, she lias a great command of the
choicest English,' epigram and appropriate anccdoie come without ak-
parent effort. ,. In responding . to
toasts to .the press, and to addressee
of welcome, she said the right word,
just enough, not-too much, _ and nothing omitted. It .was, howeker, 111
her addiess on Kipling at the .Saturday niglit meeting that, she .was at
her liest.- Ah! what a treat it was;
something to remember .in the slow
grinding of the'years,'for she . took
thai best of all views of Kipling—
the apostle of tlit dignity and grandeur of work. You felt instinctively
thai it was because she -was herself ,1
_w_oi_kcii_tlia.,LhiUia'L^
Cameron so stroii-Jly. .Tlie finest
touch of all was liu reference to his
stories , for children, lh?n her own
love- of the child was ' revealed.
Speaking ut this incident afterwards,
a friend said to nie:   "Do vou kno.v
the thin-**; lhat struck me most • was
lhat all the women on the platform'
thai evening were wives' and mothers,
with the single exception of Miss
Cn-mci-on,' aiid yet to me she sug^ist-
ed more of the' mother heart, in face,
voice and thought, than any other
speaker..",, I felt instantly that this
was - true. A man passing _ in the
crowd said to a friend "that is '*
grand, good woman; you feel it when
you look at her, you hear" it in her
voice. She is brainy, probably the
brainiest woman   here   tonight,   L|ut
>
above* all. she is good.
War, it any .wonder that wilB people who had only, beard her once
going wild ovci her, that thc members of the club, one and all, came
lo look upon her ap the type of all
that   is   best   in'women.     The-west

thc hand and. look inlo, her eyes.
-A Kansas '-business man," in iho
wsurse of an address on advertising-.
Tecciitly, said:
"If I ventured' to advise the adver-
User the advice would lie largoly
"Doul's," and something like this:
"Don't expect too much. 'Advertising may stem lo work miracles " in

"Don't lie.. Live up to your ' announcement*..

"Don't den:and something for nothing, especially long-winded pulls of

point at times, but'in-the long run

Will Exhibit in Fernie on Friday,
August 10th«=Big Time.
' .'lhe coining visit of Burch and
Uiiss' World's. _ Greatest '.Shows l.i
this lily 011 Friday, Aug. loili, will
jir,o\c very interLStinJy to the .slmleiils
of psychic plienoiiicna, hypnotism, occultism, th-'jsophy,'and. to the -be:
lievers in rcinrarnatiou in general.
.With these --hows is an animal trainer by the name of Heir Kirehem, ii
"graduate of , Ntrburg College, Germany. Ilcrr Kircliem's nietliod of
training annuals is absolutely different Irom any other, heretofore employed, t The professor el'ajjns that] all
animals have souls; are capable of
thought, and when properly under-,
stood, thoir reasoning powers cannot
be disputed. It is needless to say
that .'the Professor is'an,enthusiastic
Iv-licvcr in theosophy. His method ot
training animals is to keep them
calm and to converse with them in -a
low,' conversational tone; to* treat
them kindly; to gain their confidence;,
and to always look them straight in
the eye. In Ihis way the Professor
has been able to sujlxluc the most ferocious lions and .tigers, and he has
trained -i ci'tncl to.a point r.! excellence ncvet Ixiforc attained. lie has
likcwisb been able to 'place a camel,
pony and a lar*!;^ dog/into a slate of
, hypnosis.'  In    one instance it. i.s    re
corded that he placed a snake    inlo J tents.
a cataleptic stale so perfectly that
lhe reptile icseiublcd n walking stick
in its slraigthliicss and thcrig-idityof
its body. The camel, dog and pony
•ire put through their wonderful feats
of intelligence by means of this power  al eveiv  perlormaiice.   The  scofler
4
and .unbeliever will find many things
in Ilcrr Kircliem's wonderful- experi-'
incuts that will require a lot of explaining. -All, of the 350 dogs, ponies, goats, camels, "pigs, zebus, ant
caters, Ivosindicus, llamas, ta'pairs
and other animals arc under the immediate charge of Ilerr Kirchcm
Such a thing as a whip is never used
with these new big shows. This will
l>e the first western tour of Messrs.''
Burch' and Reiss' Animal Shows, and
they 'will- no doubt create a sensa!
lioin.) In addition to the niultitiidion-'
or.s animal' acts, will lie shown'
tro'ups of aciialists, acro*b,ats, clowns;
gymnasts, bicyclists, jugiglers Oquilib-

IN SOUTH AFRICA
An Expert's Views on the Present Situation-Written
with  all the Weight of Local  Coloring.
0    g^jthtae  Says    when omu

considerable     interest    at   the   sjinc
time being highly educational.
■The following  article   appearing  in
the 'New1 York Post, is from the pen
ol Capt. Arthur H,; Blefctlay, a vet
eran of the Transvaal,
?r  THE ZULU'S.DREAM—
The "Zulu   Is  ever   hoping   for a
chance lo throw, off the vofce. He s

This is lhe. dream, of the Zulu to

The vast veldt, he believes, will again
abound in game, now driven 'awaj

,fear that n volcanoc of reliellion ma

in the.opinion lhat it will reqiiiri. a
most .careful handling'. of tlie sitna
tion by the British dud colonial j;ov
olated
if  t
ipht is
avoided.
FBIENDJJNESS  OP TRIBRS.
Hitherto .the. greatest safeguard lu-s
tlen the inate 'and implacajble jealousy of the various tribes, whicli has
rindered anv serious combination nn
probable. This lias tended to facili
tale the handling of _llic whole question,   the   two   great   tribal   section:
"the Basuto.and the Zulu, hating; taeh
other with the cordiality of the Sein
ihOle   and   the   Apache.   But   recently
there has been signs of a rcapproi

small  way  due

or in railwav

mented fcy the comparative ease with
-tfthich travelling can 'itojw be ac
complishcd. This spirit of coucili i
lion afjfl conslolnlat^tm has been fos
tered by the. missionaries who hav
established  branches   all   over the
country. Some ^missionaries liavc
done Ineffible mischief in promoting
the..doctrine, of  "Africa for. the  Af-
FTJTII.E GERMAN EFFORTS.—
'Unrest--has been increased by t u.
pathetically '■ futile efforts of the Ou
man government to put down the.lle-
ttro rebellion in German southwt&t
Africa: "There -. for. two and a halt
years a small aiid insignificant tnv-e
Of iHo'tcntotts and Hereros, poorly

lie ..sacrifice of 7000 lives, and 1'
constant airnal of reinforcements

from, sight as it was two yearsag
The.Herero, fighting with a chivali
totally unexpected; is far from hur
iscouragcd, and quite recently tl
lutf Marengo, sent a message I
'the mighty general of tlle emperor
