C, and can be traced to many parts of  the earth. It comes to the front every Thursday'morning, and  believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. 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. To the United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advauce.  R,  T.  LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD, APRIL 3, 1913.

Money that  help the world.  is buried does not  Fioah and excitement are enemies  to good digestion.  When fishing for business use  the live ad for bait.  One  bird in the oven is better  than forty, in the bush.  Very often the store that does  not advertise is overstocked with  cobwebs.  Tins province may have high  water this year, but no danger of  towns being swept away.  Very often a cold spring ends in  a hot summer. This year is similar to 1894 and it was one of high  water, dry weather and great forest fires.  No, dear Mike, it is not necessary to pack a gun whon you go to  Ottawa. All you need is a hot air  backstop.  Visrxal poetry is none to plentiful this year and some editors are  etili lighting their fires with old  exchanges.  From the appalling disasters in  Ohio aud other states it is apparent  that nature has no regard for anything human.  Alt. signs point to a bright and  prosperous summer in the Boundary district. Get in early and  take the high seats.  The Eve-Opener says that after  a brief visit to the States it is hard  to believe that there are only ten  commandments to be broken.  When times are good prepare  for tho reverse, because one follows the other in order to balance  the commercial affairs of all men.  The land in B. C. needs more  farmers. If all people would insist upon living in cities it would  not be long before we would have  no rolled oats in the morning.  In Greenwood the waiters all  shout, "Spokane!" when a customer orders pork and beans.  That must have been a popular dish  in Spokane years ago. Perhaps it  was invented in that city.  Thinking Themes  ous.  her.  name.  She has just died.  She was not beautiful, nor fam-  You have !never heard of  You never will hear her  She was one of the myriad  unknown who make up this world.  But she was one of the family.  That means as much as to say she  was empress of Great Britain, to  the circle of broken hearts that  suffer because they shall see her;  no more.  We look at one another and turn  away to hide our tears.  Her absence at the table seems  to reproach us for living on.  I do not say she was superlatively good, wise or strong. She  was human and we loved her.  The one fact that we cannot  make real is that she will never,  never come back to us.  Never is a dreadful word.  Yet that place to which she is  gone seems very near to us.  Wherever, whatever it is, it is as if  we could almost reach out our  hand and touch it.  We could not say now so weak a  thing as that we believe in a  future life; we know it; we are  conscious of it; because we love  her and she is there.  It is love alone upon which the  conviction of immortality feeds.  Because we love, life must go on,  and death is an illusion.  No argument addressed to the  reason could convince us; we know  we are persuaded by the deep in-  tinct of the heart.  Etymology sometimes contains  striking hints of truth. The word  "virtue" now passes as meaning  goodness or moral worth, and has  a feminine flavor. Originally the  Latin "virtus" meant manly  strength, and was a kin to the  word "vir', or "man."  And the buried and half-forgotten truth that lies here is that the  determining ingredient of goodness is power..  There is no virtue in weakness.  Whatever is feeble is immoral. If  we say a weak woman is good it is  because we think confusedly and  do not express exactly what we  mean; for what we really have in  mind is that the woman, though  weak in body, and possibly in intelligence, is strong in soul. It is  not at all her weakness, it is her  strength   we  wish  to   commend.  Goodness is never feeble, never  contemptible. It is the toughest,  hardest, most forceful thing in  man. Kindness is stronger than  cruelty, love than hate, self-sacrifice than self-seeking, truth than  lies.  All real morality, if you think  clearly, you will see to be nothing  but the highest form of human  force.  Virtue is "virtus," inner, masterly strength.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  every twenty-four.  Everyone knows this, but many  seem to be defying Father Time at  his game, until a halt is called and  they are forced to learn that they  can accomplish more by reason of  stronger nerves, grunted by the  proper amount of sleep.  Our cities are filled with tired  eyes and faded complexions from-a  lack of sleep.  Society women consume' their  nights in social pleasures and their  days in the duties incumbent upon  their position,, and wonder why  they fado.  The farmer's wife works all day  and half of tho night, arising at  daylight, unrested and unrofresiled, and wonders why she ages before hor husband.  *     *     :!*���������  Youth, strength and beauty are  absolutely dependent upon these  eight hours from the twenty-four  of each day and you have but sixteen hours of real life to score on  your age.  No matter what happens, sleep,  should be and must bo taken.  Wear as light weight garments as  possible. See also that they are  loose. Do not sleep upon featheis;  a hair mattress is best. Have no  pillow.  Sleep between sheets and under  light but warm covering. Do not  place your bed directly in a draft,  but have a window open in the  room; fresh air is necessary at  night as well as in the day.  Sleep alone and without a light,  assume a comfortable position,  then imagine the bed rising up to  your body, fairly pushing it. That  is relaxation.  Relaxation of body and mind is  simply letting go. Thus you  should sleep and rest awakening  refreshed and rejuvenated.  ___mmmm  Remember: Every unconscious  hour spent in nature's sleep is  just that much deducted from  your age.���������Lillian Russell.  The Socialists  Sleep For Beauty  Closing the eyes in rest is of the  utmost importance in the search  for good looks.  There are no means so productive or preserving of a pleasing  appearance or a calm mind as  proper and sufficient sleep.  Nothing will prompt the brightness and vivacity of youth like the  suspended consciousness which nature demands eight hours out of  If perchance a socialistic form of  government were put into effect  that natural discontent of man  placed in uneventful conditions,  with no hope of rising beyond the  dead level of humanity, would result, among the vqry large majority, ir. creating unrest and discontent, and there would soon be  violent outbreaks and revolutions,  which, in time, would put an end  to Socialism. It is not man's  nature to be contented with a cur-  rentless and tame conditions of  affairs.  The Socialists declares that all  nations are in a hopeless condition  and that nothing will save them  but Socialism. Still look at the  people of this continent, ior instance, and wo find millions of  happy people who are in good, or  fairly good circumstances. The  children of laborers aro better fed,  better housed, better dressed and  have more opportunities for education than did the sons and daughters of kings three hundred years  ago. While it is- true that there  are a considerable number of poor,  their cases are not so numerous or  their condition so hopeless as our  socialistic friends would have us  believe. Never in the history of  the world were peoplo generally in  a more prosperous condition than  they are in Canada, and particularly in British Columbia today. Intelligent and broad plans are being  put into force to benefit the general  condition of mankind in the shape  of annuities for old age, insurance  against sickness, insurance against  loss of work, workmen's compensations acts and other acts calculated  to improve conditions. Never in  the history of mankind have the  rights of individuals obtained  higher recognition nor reached the  importance that thoy have today.  As long as man retains tho nature that he was endowed with by  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.

The d--yv- wns giddy May, and  the Invited young Lorena, moreover,  owned all the folly ��������� normal to nineteen. So altogether it would have been  a miracle if things had gone exactly  as they should. A proper young woman' of '.course would have reckoned  chances before baring. her feet and  dancing joyously In midstream, where  the pebbles' lay smoothly bedded In  fine sand and gleaming jewel-wise  wherever a sun ray struck through  the ripples.  Lorena did not let herself remember  that the ford was but Qfty yards higher up or that tins' special shallow reach  of the creek lay between the two lakes  that gave the Guest Ashing. Thoy were  not true lakes,',of course���������only water  mirrors, still ancl deep, Impounded! by  dams of tlio .winter flood's building.  Lorena did uot love them. ��������� They were  so placid they reminded her somehow  of Johnny, and whatever did, that put  her out of temper.  Sho loved glitter, motion, excitement  It was ecstasy to her to dance all day  long'and half the night after, footing  it as'lightly .as wind blown thistle  seed. If only she could dance alone!  But since that was out of Hie question  she naturally preferred partners who  kept step and were nimble. Johnny  was neither, yet all the time she had  been engaged to hlni he had felt it his  right to say if she did not dance with  him she must dance with hardly anybody else..    ���������  , And not at all with Granville Gore,  the very prince of partners, who was  handsome and slender and light hearted, with money In both pockets and a  trick of spending It with both hands.  Johnny hated him, without reason so  far as Lorena could see���������at least he  gave her no reason���������only said, "If you  are goin' ever to belong to me, Lolie,  you must be barely civil to that fellow."  Somehow the emphasis on the last  word always made Lorena shiver when  she recalled it. How could she help  it when Johnny was toward other folk  the soul of kindly justice? Still she had  felt that he was unfair. If he really  new anything he.might let her know  It likewise.  If Johnny could have brought himself  to tell her the break might not have  come. But he was too proud :iud masterful for that. His wife must believe  in tiim enough to understand that he  had reasons for any and ovary 'thing.  Besides, he was afraid of seeming envious and jealous of a man so much  richer and better looking. .Moreover,  he "did not really know much that could  be told categorically. It was Gore's general air and manner, conjoined to  words dropped here and there, that  made Johnny certain he had no real  reverence for anything feminine. A  girl, any girl.'was fair game to him. If  she hadn't sense enough to look out for  herself he wa3 not bound to look out  for her. Yet Gore was not distinctly  vicious���������rather, inordinately vain. He  did not mean worse by womankind and  girlkind than to make love to them,  then ride away. Marry! Not he���������not  the finest girl alive!  If Lorena had known that! Unknowing it, she had thought a great many  times and a great many things of  the fascinating Granville in'the three  months since the break. He had been  away for two of them, and since he  came home she had seen him only in  crowds. But he had used his eyes so  eloquently as to set her heart wildly  fluttering. But, oddly enough, it had  fluttered* even more when by chance  sho, had encountered Johnny in his  working clothes, driving his wagon to  the mill.  They had barely nodded to each other, and she had ridden fast afterward,  but not fast enough to get away from  a sense that Johnny, old Johnny, although his face was impassive, had'  turned to look after her as long as she  was in sight  Today she was not thinking of hlm-  hardly even of Granville. Wading wit*  such pure joy. The water came abov������  her ankles. ��������� She lifted her skirts lightly in both hands and balanced to her  shadow upon the rippling stream, succ  a funny shadow, dancing grotesquely  even when she stood still.  Rapt In contemplation of it, she dirt  not hear footsteps or anything until  a throaty, chuckling voice cried: "Oh.  hoi A mermaldl Gore, If the variety  Is Indigenous, understand, I shall settlo  In your neighborhood just as soon an  I can buy a place."  Lorena flushed scarlet ' She let fail  her skirts, heedless of water���������heedless,  indeed, of anything but escape. There  were men on either bank; also one in  wading approaching her midstream.  Gore was the farthest of thera-a (iore  she had never seen. He looked her  over as though she were a part, a curious part, of the landscape with which  bo had no sort of acquaintance.  It was the man In wading who bad  spoken. He was striding on toward  her, his rod over his shoulder, a broad  grin upon his flat, red faco. Her suu-  bonnet, her faded print frock, above  all her present case, had nearly made  him believe her some hoydenish milkmaid rather than mermaid.  "Didn't I tell you fellows tho finest  fish were hero in the shallows?" he  bellowed at the men on the bank.  "Never yet mado such a catch," he  added, making to fllngvan arm about  Lorena's waist  She evaded him, springing to one  side and trying to gain the bank, but  the sportsmen there set up a laughing  shout which warned her not to trust  them. Desperately she fled upstream,  cutting her feet on sharp stones, but  never faltering. It was not easy to  run against the current���������tho rock bottom was slippery In places and hen  wet skirt hamper6d her terribly.  Still she kept out of reach until she"  was twenty yards off the ford, Tha  flat faced man, laughing and panting  after her, caught her there and said aa  he gave her a resounding kiss: "'Pon  my soul, Undine, it was worth it I  haven't had such a lark since I was a  boy." '    '  Lorena broke from him, crying wildly: "Granville! Mr. Gore! Kill thie  creature!"  At that the men laughed louder than  ever. Granville,had discreetly disappeared. He was sorry for Lorena;  also angry with her, even angrier than  with his friend of the flat, red face*  There were millions back of the fiat,  red face���������millions that might mean  much to Gore's future. Was he to rlslc  their help, to invite everlasting chaff,  to make himself the butt of the grill  rooms next time he was in town, by  championship of a girl, a silly country  girl, who should have known better  than to put herself In such case?  Mullen, he of the flat, red face, was-  not a bad sort, only full of uncouth)  spirits.     Lorena   would   come  to  no-!  harm.   And if she had sense enough to'  keep, hor mouth shut he (Gore) would  see to  it that she  was handsomely  made up to for her present fright. But  of course he could  not acknowledge'  her as an acquaintance whon she looked such a guy and had let herself get  caught in such a plight.  ��������� Lorena, noting his absence, stumbled  blindly toward tho bank and half fell  upon it, covering her eyes with both  hands.    Mullen scrambled out beside  her and tried to lift her to her feet,  tho rest jeering him, pretending to say  tilings aside and singing in cracked  chorus, "Where is my .wandering boy?"  They were laughing so loud, watching so intently, Johnny fell upon them  like, a  thunderbolt from blue skies.  Johnny  was still in working clothes.  He had, in fact, started to the blacksmith's shop in a mad hurry in hope  of getting a dulled plow point sharpened.   So he had come to the ford in  the very nick of time to see that a woman was in need of help and to rush,  to give it.  "Gentlemen"���������Johnny's voice cut like  ice���������"you must show me your warrant  for taking a prisoner. Unless you do"���������'  He stopped short there, his face white,  his eyes two points of flame. Even ye*  he did not know, but a second later  Lorena was beside him, clinging to  bim, burying' her face in his rough  sleeve and sobbing out: "Johnny, save  me! Take me away! Don't stop to  fight them���������only take me and go!"  "Not yet," Johnny said, putting her  gently away.  ' The events of the next five minutes  are better left unchronicled. Suffice it  that Mr. Granville Gore and his sportsmen friends from the city went away  on the night train, at least two of the  visitors carrying beautiful black eyes.  As to how the eyes had been achieved  there was discreet silence, but when in  the fall Lorena and Johnny were married there came to the bride a chest of  massive silver, along with an unsigned note which ran: "Please accept this  in token of forgiveness. Remember,  you owe me something���������in that I gave  you occasion to find out the difference  there is between a man and a mouse."  Lorena was for sending it back, but  Johnny laughed and said: "Mullen is  right He is a man. You can drub a  man into decency, but a mouse always  runs away."  "And I hate mice of every sort" Lo-  rer-a added with a pensive smile.

Champlain  sailed  along  the  Maine  coast several years before he discovered the lake which bears his name,  and a monument was erected to his  memory on the cliffs of Mount Desert  island, near Seal Harbor, in 190-1. That  date marked the three hundredth anniversary _of Champlain's voyage, and an  extract from liis journal  (in translation) appears upon a bronze tablet on  one face of the monument.   Facing tho  sea is another tablet, bearing the following inscription: "In honor of Samuel de Champlain, born in France, 15G7;  died at Quebec, 1035; soldier, sailor, explorer and administrator, who gave this  island   its   name."    The   monument,  which consists of a large rectangular  slab of the granite of the cliffs, was set  up and dedicated in 190-1 by a little  company of summer residents of Mount  Desert island, among whom were President Eliot of Harvard, President Gil-  man  of Johns  Hopkins  and  Bishop  Doane of Albany.  || Thousands of acres of  X the best fruit and agricul/  g.tural   lands   in   the best  in  B,   C,   climate   at  reasonable terms,  very  g-������M������������������������������������������������������������������C"0^������������'������������������O������������  Synopsis of Coal Mining Regulations.  ^*OAL mining rights of the Dominion,  ^"* in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of British  Columbia, may be leased for a term of  twenty-one 'years at an annual rental of  $x an acre.

I  must be largo hearted if I am going to  measure up to my couutry, for, iu that  old oratorical phrase, she reaches from  the Atlantic to tho Pacific and from  Canada to tho gulf of Mexico.

It was tho most  unique, independent aud fearless journal over produced in Canada. Political  and theological enemies pursued it with  the venom of a rattlesnake until the  government shut it out of tho mails,  and its editor coasad to' publish it,  pa*tly on account of a lazy liver and  partly because it takes a pile of monej  to run a paper that is outlawed.

Coppor Co. is negotiating  for an option on tho Kilo mine, on  Springer creek in tho Slocan. The  control ling interest in tho Kilo  is owned by Mrs. McNaught of  Silverton.  Already he is favorably impressed  with our ores. Yesterday he  visited the Harris Mines, of which  he thinks highly, and today he  went to tho Silver Standard. It is  the purpose of the Granby company to add a lead stack to its  2,000-ton coppor smelter at Granby  bay, as soon as a daily production  of 100 tons of silver-lead ore is assured. The mines in this district  aro expected to yield tho necessary  tonnage in a comparatively short  time.���������Omineca Minor.  OCK>OOOOCK>0<XK>0<>OCK>CK>CK>0 OOO  I   B. C. MINING NEWS   I  o 0  00<*K>00000000<>0000<KH>000000  The Erie mine, one of the best-  known properties of tho district, is  to resume development immediately. E. L. Kinman, the principal owner, came in on "Wednesday and immediately made the  necessary arrangements, letting a  contract to Harris Bros. & Mullan  for 440 feet of work, including a  crosscut tunnel. Duke Harris and  Jack Mullan, the latter of whom  will have immediate charge of the  work, have engaged men for three  shifts, and ground will be broken  on Monday. In the meantime,  the big ore dump is being sorted  nnd sacked, and two cars will be  shipped next week, the first leaving on Monday. The ore, at  present metal prices, will run  ������170.00 gross.  The freight rate of SG.40 to  Prince Rupert is considered much  too high, and Mr. Kinman is making an aggressive fight for a fairer  schedule. It is believed tho railway company will reduce the rate.  Mr. Kinman has received treatment quotations from the Tacoma  smelter which will greatly interest  Onii of tho finest pieces of native  silver over brought to town, camo  in on Monday from tho TJuica. It  was brought down by Jean Bro-  chier, the shift boss at tho big 12-  Mile property. Tho piece is about  fourteen inches in length and of  irregular size, tho streak having  about the thickness of a fifty cent  piece. It was taken out of a big  strike of three feot and a half of  galena in the big or wost load.  The property is looking exceptionally fine in all directions, according to Mr. Brochier. Tho continuation of the southern drift on  the east vein has opened up another  ore shoot which now averages  about three inches in width and as  the ore on this property appears to  run in and out in long regular  shoots, an increase of this ore body  is looked for as the drift progresses.  Hughie Chisholm, of Chisholm  Brothers, who have a lease on the  apex workings of the TJtica,  was also in town the early part of  the week. They are taking out ore  on their lease right along and sending it down by their tram..to the  base of the peak, where it will be  transferred to other conveyances  for forwarding to the railway.���������  Kaslo Kootenain.  THE OLD DAYS  silver-lead miners, marking as  they do, a considerable reduction  in smelting rates. For ores carrying less'than 35 per cent, lead the  new rate is So; 35 to 40 per cent,  ores will be treated for $4; 40 to 45  per cent., $3; 45 to 50 per cent.,  82; 50 to GO per cent, 81, with no  treatment charge on ores carrying  In an interview in the Vancouver Province, Mr. J. Cumming, of  the 150 Mile House, on the days of  the real "Old Cariboo" he tolls  some interesting history of the  days of the gold discoveries:  "In the year 1SG2" he said, "I  obtained employment from the  Cariboo Company, which held  some claims on William's Creek.  ���������Cariboo Cameron' held one claim  in his own name, his wife held another, and I held one for Cameron  in my name, so that out of seven  claims Cameron controlled three.  I worked tho claim I held for him  and at the end of five months,  when ho was going to Victoria,  paid over to him the results of my  total wash-ups,, which   amounted  ���������-0 per cent.    Tho former fiat rate to a frac*icm less than  $100,000.  was 88 a ton. The freight rate  from Hazelton to Tacoma is at  present $9.50, and settlements are  on New York quotations at time  of receiving ore. The zinc penalty  has been reduced from 50 to 30  cents per unit over 8 per cent.  All of which means that the smelter is anxious to obtain lead ores.  ���������Hazelton Miner.  Investigating the ore possibilities  of this district, in the interests of  the Granby company, E. E. Campbell is spending a few days here.  Mr. Cameron's wife died in the  fall of the year, and no sooner was  her death known than the claim  held in her name was staked by  nearly a thousand men. There was  a real forest of stakes, and I think  that if they were all put together  would have measured a good fat  cord of wood.  "Cameron entered suit in the  Supreme Court against these jumpers, and when it was tried before  Judge Begbie, a decision was given  in his favor, with costs, which  were heavy.   The judge gave the  The Official  Tests show Dr. Price's  Baking Powder to be most  efficient in strength, of highest  purity and healthtatoess  AIP9, No Phosphate of Lime  jumpers a   good   dressing   down.  As I had said before, Cameron left  Cariboo for Victoria,   taking his  wife's body with him.    Thero he  had it immersed in alcohol, to preserve it, as he was going to take it  back  east by 'way of tho Isthmus  for burial near her former homo.  ���������   "When   in    Victoria   Cameron  purchased another Williams Ci-eek  claim from the Clendennings, and  also two side claims from tho same  brothers.    Then   he   returned   to  Barkerville,   but  in eight month's  ho  left  again, this time for good.  As    ho    now  owned  five of   tho  seven claims in the company, he  was waiting for the result of a few  months'   wash- up  to  pay his expenses.'  "Yon can form some idea of the  richness  of  the  claim  I  held for  him,  when  I tell you one day ho  came to mo and said:    'dimming,  I wish you would get me two good  pans of dirt, one  I wish to send to  my sister,   and tlio other to Mrs.  Wattie.    I  took  a  pan and went  into tho  claim   I was working for  him and washed   two pans of dirt.  I found thirty-two  ounces  in  one  and thirty-six  in   the   other.    Of  course I knew tho claim was rich,  bnt those pans of dirt was got from  a  thin  streak  of  dirt  which ran  through the claim, about four feot  from  bed rock.    You  can take a  candlestick in your hand and walk  in front of the streak and pick out  the gold.    Wattie was in charge of  the company's interests that year.  "At last,   at the end  of eight  mouths,   clean-up   'Cariboo   Cameron'   quit  us  for good.    It took  just eight pack mules to carry away  his  gold  dust.    The  consignment  went to the coast under a guard  well-known to Cameron, and they  were well  rewarded for their services.    When Cameron left Wattie  took charge.    He  was a native of  Valleyfield,   Lower Canada, as it  was then known.    Ho worked the  claims  for one year, when I took  charge.  "When Cameron left the claims  were just opened up, and far more  gold was taken out after ho left.  Tho dust taken out after Wattie  took charge was divided between  himself and a Mr. Steele, who subsequently went into cattle raising,  and shortly afterwards died. I  worked the claims until wo closed  down in 1SSG. Wattie, who went  east in the following year after  Cameron, came out a few years  ago to report for some Montreal  shareholders on Hobson's claim at  Bullion.  "A number of young men who  owned claims above the Canyon  where poor Dutch Bill was working, washed all the gravel on their  claims, eight feet in depth, until  they struck a thick clay bottom.  Then they stopped and went up to  Antler, where they made nothing.  After throwing up their claims on  William's creek, the ones with the  clay bottom, I mean, a gambler  named Abbot said to one of the  boys: 'Come and we'll sink  through the clay and see whether  we can find anything there.' They  did so, and struck pay dirtatouce,  going 3100 to the pan, and sometimes higher. He sent- back to  Antler and got the boys down who  had abandoned it and paid themj  good wages to work for him.  "Just below these claims was tho  Canyon, through which the waters  of   William's   creek   ran.     This  claim   was taken  by Dutch Bill,  who  discovered William's Creek,  and after who it was named.    But  unfortunate for Bill his claim was  worthless.    Down  what was supposed  to.be the old   channel   of  William's   creek,    were    several  claims such as Black Jack, Diller  and the Canadian Company.    The  last company paid   high���������it  was  rich.   One claim gavo to ono pick,  and a  windlass,  102 lbs.  in one  day.   This was tho Diller. Conkin  Gulch also paid big.   Tho Ericson  Co.,  with four picks gavo 1,700  ounces   in   a   twenty-four  hours  wash. The Caledonian on Williams creek gave $16 to the pan.  Dutch Bill didn't make much but  ho was a good prospector.  THE FIRST CASE  Under the Provincial Liquor  Amendment Act, passed during  last session, Chief Roche has, in  all probability, scored the first  conviction, and Rosio Tratnor,  keeper of a disorderly houso on  Government street has perhaps the  distinction of being the first prisoner to be' sent to Kamloops for  infringing section 95, subsection 1,  clause A of tho act. She was  sentenced by Magistrate Guernsey,  on Monday, to six months, without the option of a fine, for keeping a "blind pig."  The appearance of the place  aroused the suspicions of Chief  Constable Roche and Constable  Smith on their first visit and a  thorough search of the premises  took place, with the result that a  cache was found under the floor  of tho pantry which contained 187  bottles of port wine, three bottles  of Champagne, one bottle of Scotch  whiskey and sixteen whiskey and  beer glasses. The receptical was  cunningly devised, being under  tlie oilcloth. Below the flooring  was a. box containing the liquor.  The provisions of the new act  are very stringent, in the case of  persons caught selling liquor without a licence. No fine may be imposed and the least term of imprisonment is six months.���������Penticton Herald.

Experts declare that the reason  stomach disorders are so common In  this country Is due to hasty and  careless habits of eating*. Stomach  troubles and run-down conditions also  usually go together.  John Lind, of Oneonta, N. Y., says:  "I have been troubled with a bad  stomach trouble for fifteen years, and  became so weak that I could hardly  walk or do any work. My appetite  was very poor, and it seemed impossible to get any relief. Since^ taking  two bottles of Vinol I find that it has  already made a remarkable improvement in my health; my digestion Is  much stronger, and I have gained in  weight."  Vinol makes weak stomachs strong  because it strengthens and tones up  the weakened, tired and overtaxed  nerves of the digestive organs. Vinol  is easily assimilated by the weakest  stomachs, and is delicious to the taste.  Try a bottle of Vinol with the  understanding that your money will  be returned if it does not help you.  J. L.
