It believes  in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the. printer.  The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  the county of Bruce.

A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once mora  like to conmiimo with your collateral.  THE CIG NUISANCE  mitted, that ho had only taken ono  drink of whiskey in his life. This  is 'a wonderful record probably  hold by no other policeman in the  province.  Some people are so selfish that  they forget good manners. In the  Hume hotel at Nelson, probably  tho best hotel in the interior, we Some peoplo may not bo able to  noticed two well dressed young tell whiskey from creosote, but it  men sit down to dinner, and light i is also often a difficult thing to tell  their  cigarettes while waiting for blind pig  whiskey from sulphuric  the waiter to bring them the soup.  Such   manners are execreablo and  should  not be permitted   in   the  public dining room of any hotel.  Many   people,    especially   ladies,  detest   tbe   smell   and    sight   of  burning    cigarettes,     and    their  rights should  be   respected.     No  sane landlord  will permit a man  to pull off his boots and pare his  corns in the dining room, and yet  such a practice would be hardly as  offensive as having some brainless  cig fiend  blowing paper   and tobacco smoke into the ozone around  you, while you are trying to treat  a two  dollar meal in a just and  thorough manner.    No gentleman  will smoke a cig amid the mixed  company of a public dining room,  and tho other kind of men should  be prevented.     If   hotelmen   are  powerless to stop the   pernicious  habit, it will be quite easy to have  a clause inserted  in  the  Liquor  Act   that   will   prevent   it.   The  railways confine smokers to certain  apartments and  hotels should  be  just as considerate.  acid,   flavored with Jersey  lightning and Mexican red pepper.  Tiie rating books sent out by  mercantile agencies may be good  directories of business people, but  they are a huge farce when it  comes to telling the real financial  standing of individuals.  "Faites, 0 mon Dieu, que jo ne  survive pas mon coenr!���������Grant 0  my God, that, I do not oublivo my  heart!"cried tlie Frenchman.  Why live when ono no longer  cares?  Life is a burden that is only  tolerable when there is love.  Man has so many wants, ambitions, "longings and dreams, that,  unless heflhaH love to steady ancl  comfort him, the very business of  living is liko to rack him to pieces.  Tho only way to a successful old  age is to see that the heart does  not die.  "The heart does not age," said  Voltaire, "but it is sad for it to  have to lodge in a ruin."  Of that, however, I am not so  sure.  For if tlie heart lie still young  with tlio currents of love it will  even make the decroipt body beautiful. Indeed I think nothing is  more lovely than a warm soul  alive in an old body.  Ono of the most charming pictures of history is that tho venerable Saint .John, the evangelist,  who when ho was too feeble to do  anything else, would sit in his  chair and pronounce the benediction at the meeting of the earl_y  church, saying only: "Little  children, love one another.,'���������Dr  Frank Crane.  We have a vast quantity of dry lumber on  hand; enough to build a sidewalk across the  continent; strong enough to build a Canadian  Navy and dry enough to build a second Ark  for Noah.  We want to move this with celerity in order  to keep our saws dissecting the logs that are  still intact, and have made the prices that will  create a rush. Buy direct from us and your  bank-roll will not suffer from undue depletion.  Lumber delivered anywhere���������except to the  North and South Poles, the Plaiiets, Hell and  one or two other dangerous and inaccessible  places.  Beauty of Health  Up to date the wage slaves have  never had a strike, against the  high price of beer, tobacco, and  cigarettes.  It costs 88,500 a day to run the  Parliament at Ottawa, so speech  is not free in this great Dominion.  The Liberals have again captured Alberta. That province is  rich and can stand the misfortune.  The weak, tho coward, and the  kind-hearted are the principal liars  of the universe.  The Petrolia Advertiser, one of  tho best and most reliable newspapers in Ontario tells about a  man who has attended fifty-one  consecutive Orange processions on  the 12th of July, and smoked tobacco seventy-eight years, or ever  since he was eight years old. He  is a Scotchman and deservos a  niche in the Temple of Fame.  The Philistine says that a word  to the wives is sufficient���������aber  nicht.  Thinking Themes  Sometimes it seem*** as if a greater part of all the good and evil we  do is done unconsciously.  What we do of sot purpose does  not, as often as not, bring the result we had hoped.    A man builds  a new house, and hia wife dies in  it the   first month.    He gives his  boy the best college training and  the youngster joins a circus troupe;  and he "casts him out as a good-for-  nothing and the rascal becomes a  bishop.    You give a pitable tramp  a dollar and he goes and gets drunk  with it; you  refuse   him  and in  desperation he goes to the Salvation Army meeting and gets converted.   A man who never gives a  cent to  charity or church carries  on a huge business aud gives employment to a thousand men, making their lives bright and content;  while���������well,  you know the other  kind of man.  So what is one to do?  Probably the best way is to do  what you can, according to your  lights, and pray the good Lord to  Ovek   in   England the  female I let as little harm come of it as  In most of the churches in B. C.  the people take off their hats when  attending services, but in one  church at the coast it is necessary  to take off your boots before you  enter the temple. Once or twice in  our varied career we have seen  some people take off their coats in  church, but it is all the result of  early training or conditions.  We know dozens of working  men in B. C. who are worth from  810,000 to 8100,000. We also  know hundreds of working men in  B. C. who are not worth 8200,  principally through a lack of thrift,  industry, intemperance, and a  barren ledge of common sense.  lunatics, misnamed suffragettes,  are still making a rough house  whenever they can find an opportunity. The world is gradually  going crazy and these unfortunate  women are only a little in advance  of the procession.  In   Greenwood    last    week  a  policeman was discovered who ad-  possible.  "The bee," says J. A. Spencer,  "builds her cell and gathers honey  to fill it, but all unconsciously, she  is the agent of another service  bearing the pollen from flower to  flower. So we, while we go about  our own business, aro unconsciously, the ministers of others, fertile  izing them if we are  fortunate,  Nourishment is the groundwork  to the perfection of beauty.  The woman who would have a  full throat, ample bosom, soft  dove-like even, and a skin all  cream and roses must be nourished by proper thinking, proper food,  proper exercise and proper rest.  She is the womanly woman, because the nutritive system is especially the prime feature of female  organism.  The trouble begins in girlhood.  How does a young girl eat? She  passes by the oulinary nourishing  foods, such as meats and wholesome green vegetables, and fills  her delicate young stomach with  candies, nuts, and pickles, ice  cream sodas, and two or three  cups of strong tea or coffee.  What is the result of such a regimen? By the time she is twenty,  just at the age when nature intended she should be as flexible as  a young willow, her eyes are dull,  her teeth yellow, her gums pale,  lips wan, her flesh flabby; in fact,  all tho sap of her womanhood is  either undeveloped or quenched.  Then to repair these unsightly  damages she must needs resort to  padding her clothes, whitewashing  her face, rongeing her cheeks, dyeing her hair.  She reads advertisements of  patent beautifiers who profess to  beautify a bust, skin, or head of  hair in two or three days, spend  her money upon useless articles  which aro a ghastlv substitute  for tho burnished glow of health as  brass is for genuine gold.  Once to indulge in pretentious  cosmetics is to be their slave for  life.  As to tho diet cure, it is only  necessary to say that table pleasures must bo generous but temperate.  Peppered foods, game patties,  heavy vegetables which grow beneath tho ground, pies, rich sauces,  and table decorations exercise a  deteriorating effect up delicate  complexions.  Women who have no courage  for restraining epicurean appetites  will acquire, before they reach the  age of thirty, the heated, blotched  faces we are wont to associate with  high living. While tho firm texture of the flesh and the fine  figure will soon be replaced by  flabby softness or scraggy leanness.  ���������Lillian Russell.  stern Pine Lumber Co., Lt  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

The general balance sheet of the  British Columbia Copper company  as of Dec. 31, 1912, shows surplus  cash  assets of  S15S,437, of which  883,G01   was   in   cash.     In   his  annual report Newman Erb, president,    says:    "In   tho Princeton  i-arnp,    indications   are   that  the  company  will  develop a mine of  considerable importance.    Work is  (���������till   in   progress  to  establish  the  extent of the ore bodies and the  best    method   of   treatment.    - It  appears  that  the  ore] from  these  mines  can  bo   profitably   concentrated and transported to tho company's  smelter  for  further  treatment.    The company added to its  holdings of New Dominion securities  during the year 8237,675 in  par value at the cost of $122,249.  "Operations for tho year were encouraging and satisfactory. % With  the opening of new mines and the  completion    of  plans for   supplementing the ore reserves,  which  appear to be assured, it is'*believed  that stability  will be given to the  company's'future. "  The main tunnel . is in about 800  feet aud has been cross-cut at every  100 feet, showing a view of lead  ore from eight to twelve feet in  width. At times tho ore runs high  in zinc. There is also a lead of  grey copper of three feet iu width  on which a shaft has been sunk to  a depth of over 100 feet, this ore  runs very high in gold and silver.  The Estella group was located  iu 1S94 by Al. Mutz and George  Scott, and was purchased from  them by Mr. Paulson. It was  bonded to Mr. C. Hungerford  Pollen, who spent over 8100,000 in  developing the property, then  owing to the low price of lead and  the large amount of zinc found in  the ore, the deal fell through.  It will be good news to the residents of Wasa and Tracey Creek  to know that Mr. Paulson intends  to operate the mine.���������Cranbrook  Prospector.  MMJ-MMMt-MW-^^  List your farms with us.

According to  the letter it has been learned that  a man took thirty-seven and a half  ounces of gold out of it in an incredibly short time last fall.    The  creek is all staked.  "Millionaire"- Kelly,* who is  well known about Juneau and regarded as reliable, is at Silver  Creek. Ho says all is staked as is  Moose Horn creek near it. Ab  present no one is doing any work  there, but everybody is waiting for  spring to come.  Kelly says provisions are not  high in Atlin and the demand does  not exceed the supply. However,  dogs cannot be bought to transfer  goods from Atlin to the diggings  for love of money. Atlin prices  are, flour, $7.50 sack; bacon, thirty  cents a pound; beans, eleven cents  a pound and all other things in proportion.���������Juneau Empire.  A Butte, Mont., despatch says:  The price of copper having fallen  below fifteen cents during March,  in accordance with Miners' Union  agreement, wages of underground  men here 'have been reduced to  $3.50 per day, the old figure.  When copper was selling at seventeen cents or better, the miners  were receiving 84 a day.  When the decline came, tho  wages went down to $3.75, and although in February price averaged  for the month 14.92 cents a pound,  the Anaconda company refused to  take advantage of the opportunity  to further reduce tho wages to  $3 50 in the hope that another  month would witness an increase  to fifteen cents or better.  Tho miners,   while disappointed  over the conditions  which   made  the   reduction    possible,.' are not  finding any fault with  the companies and look forward with confidence to au increase in the price  this  month    and  consequently   a  restoration in the wages in another  four weeks to at least $3.75 a day.  It is quite   generally  rumored  that the Anaconda company was  not disposed  to  take advantage of  the   agreement    and  reduce  the  wages for March, but some of the  smaller   companies   insisted that  the agreement should be lived up  to the   letter and  the Anaconda  company   therefore   consented   to  act accordingly.  The agreement is that when  copper is seventeen cents, or better, the wages shall be $4 a day;  below seventeen cents a pound,  $3.75 a day, and below fifteen  cents a pound, $3.50 a day.

Wash., owner "the  Iv-tella- mine, will he in tho district  in a few weeks for the 'purpose of  Htarting up tho mine.  The Estella group of mines is  located on the north side of Tracy  creek, and is ono of the best developed  prospects in the district.  New Copper Fields  The Boston Commercial says  that attention has been directed to  two possible new sources of copper  in the extreme north of Europe.  One occurs in the Russian Island  of Nova Zembla, and has been  brought to light by the report of  an expedition which visited the  Island in 1911. Copper was found  by the expedition; in two districts;  one yielding native copper, the  other, copper ores. Two veins  are stated to have been discovered,  having an average thickness of one  Gve-tenths to two metres each; and  extending for more than two kilometers.  A sample of tho ore, assayed at  the mining institute,* St. Petersburg was found to contain 42..*30%  Cream  w  The flees! in the world  When ordering ask for Dr. Price's by name* else  the grocer may forget the kind you are accustomed to.  copper; forty grains per ton silver  and 6.79% iron. A company has  been formed, having the title of  the Incorporated Joint Stock Mining company of Nova Zembla, to  work the deposits.  Mining in the Island will be a  difficult matter, the winter temperature being from fifteen degrees C.  to twenty degrees C. The vein  lies less than a kilometer distant  from the coast. As far as the richness of the deposits is concerned,  the prospects of this undertaking  of the far north, are considered to  be particularly good. The low  temperature of the latitude will,  however, have to be taken into  account when estimating the  chances of success in working the  deposits. ���������  The second source of supply referred to, is in Finland. Tho deposits in this case, occur iu what  are known as tho Antokompa Copper mines, which are located in  Knusjarvi. The Finnish state  geological coin mission has inspected the mines and the areas around  them and has reported as to the  presence and nature of the ore, aud  tho condition under which it  occurs. ���������  The oro is stated to bo much  richer in copper than that obtained  at other mines in Finland, which  are now at work. Calculations  have been mado which give tbe ore  bearing deposits in one area as  roughly, 400,000 tons of ore, and  in a second area as about S00,000  tons. This larger quantity also  contains some -"inc.  Copper extracting works aro to  be erected, to deal with ore of this  last named deposit, of sufficient  capacity to produce one ton of  coppor and half ton of zinc per  day. Tho process will, it is stated,  yield at least 90% of tlio coppor in  the oro.   This project,  also is re-  Rose Bushes, Shrubs, Gladiolus,  Dahlias and Bedding Plants of all  kinds.
