THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  ���������*  A Story of the  Year 1985  By F. A. MITCHEL  Copyright, 1910, by American Preu  Association.  ti  lt was at the beginning of the present century that oue of tbe gatherers  of those colossal fortunes quite common at the time founded an institution  for original scientific investigation.  Soon after the corps of scientists employed there began their work they  made the discovery that living parts  of a body might be substituted for decaying parrs of another body. For  instance, a knee might be replaced by  a knee taken from a different person,  serving the purpose of a new knee.  From this starting point the experimenters proceeded step by step till  there was no part of the human body  that they could not supply.  Nearly half a century elup.'jed, however, before these gentlemen succeeded In replacing all the parts ui a single  human body by similar purta from oth.  er bodies,  The first perfect combination man  was conipli'led at the institute last  year. There was not un organ or u  part of au organ In him that had not  been taki'n from another ["tirson. The  man whose parts hail been all removed and replaced had Leen nanied  J'eter Sykes, a criminal condemned for  murder. lie was given the choice of  being executed or turned over to (he  professors lo lose his identity by becoming another person. Ho shuddered at the immolition of fiis own personality, but consented rather than die  the death of a felon.  The case was the first that was successful in producing an altogether new  being. The operators who made or,  rather, combined him considered that  their first duty toward him was to  name him. They chose the Latin word  omnium, meaning "of all"���������thar is, Mr.  Omnium was made up of all kinds of  persons. It was expected by the unscientific laity that he might be opposed to giving up rhe name of Sykes.  but as there was nothing of Sykes left  in him he made no objection whatever. Indeed, he did not remember  ever having been Sykes. The .life  Sykes had led was not iu him at nil.  Since Omnium was entirely experimental, the professors who had manufactured him gave orders that he was  not to be permitted���������at least for some  time���������to leave the institution. But a  certain part of his brain and bis right  hand had been taken from a burglar.  The consequence was' that though  locked in by a guard lie found no trouble in picking the lock with such Implements as he found lying about ond  walked forth into the world the first  man born of a great many mothers  and just as many fathers.  As might have been expected, this  fragmentary though entire individual  followed tho strongest of all the natural laws���������the law which unites the  sexes. His component parts had been  taken from persons between twenty  and thirty. His average age was therefore twenty-five, a time of life when a  man's fancy turns io love. He had  been well dressed by the professors,  and as they feared he might get out  into (he world without funds they had  placed a roll of bills in his pocket.  Feeling hungry, he went into a restaurant, where he ate a good meal and  took a desperate fancy to the casSier.  who was a very attractive young woman of twenty. Having scraped au acquaintance with her, he invited her to  go to the theater with him that evening, on invitation she accepted.  It should be noted here Unit Omnium  on entering the world as n combination man obeyed the two most important natural laws. The first thing he  did was to satisfy his hunger, the second to make love.  Miss Mabel Thompson, the young  lady to whom Omnium paid hia addresses, found him a very puzzling person. Instead of having a few characteristic traits he had a hundred. The  first clashing of idiosyncrasies she noticed was between those of a spendthrift and a miser, a portion of whose  brains had been engrafted within his  cranium. Insteafl of engaging seats at  the theater he took a whole'box. This  was embarrassing to Miss Thompson,  who was a very modest person. What  was her surprise when after the play  he took her to supper and ordered one  berriug for the two.  This episode, though neither of them  kuew it, showed from the first that,  though it was possible to produce a  perfect physical combination man, the  ���������Trotter of those elements that are to  ba classed as mental opened up a new  field for the scientists. It demonstrated'that to place In the same skull two  such discordant elements as the brains  ot a miser and a spendthrift Is to  make n bad combination.  But Miss Thompson was doomed to  further surprise nnd disappointment.  While going home after tho apology  for a supper���������half a herring for each  of them���������suddenly the strokes of a  bell fell upon their ears. At lhe first  stroke Omnium slopped stock still.  There wore three strokes, then nine.  On the ninth stroke a hook and Ind-  .der truck passed. Omnium left the  lady standing on the sidewalk, dashed  Find Help in Lydia E. Piflk*-  ham's Vegetable Compound  Winchester, Ind.��������� "Four doctors  told me that they could never make  me regular, and  that I would event  ualJy have dropsy.  I would bloat, and  sufl'erf rom bearing-  down pains,orampa  and chills, and I  could not sleep  nights. My mother  wrote to Mrs. Pink-  hamforadvice.and  I began to take  Lydia.E.Pinkham'B  Vegetable Compound.

Hundreds of such letters from girls  ind mothers expressing their gratitude  for what Lydia E. Plnkhara's Vegetable Compound has accomplished for  them havo been received by The Lydia  E.

Her advice ia tree,  aud always heJpfuL  institute, the superintendent said that  tbe return must be made legally aud  asked for the man's identity.  "now can I tell you that?" cried the  professor. "There are parts of more  than fifty people in hira."   ���������  "Do you mean that you can't give  me his legal name?"  "He has none."  "Is he white or black?"  "I can't say; there is a faint trace  of black in him."  "He is a mau, isn't he?"  "Not entirely. There are cartilages  of several dogs, the skins of two rats,  and much sewing was done with catgut."  "For heaven's sake, take him away!"  cried the superintendent. "I wouldu't  have the responsibility of either holding or giving up such a monster for  the world. I'll turn him loose, and  you must have some one from your  confounded institute here to take him.  If be gets loose again he'll get iuto  court, and it will require a United  States supreme justice to establish his  legal status."  Omnium was released from custody  that afternoon nnd caged by the keepers of the institute, ne managed to  get hold of a lawyer, and his caso  came up before the court. Seven attorneys, three Judges and a large number of jurymen lost their minds in thu  struggle to establish his legal identity. While these efforts were being  made lie one day became very much  excited and fell dead. The professors made a postmortem examination  and found some of the catgut with  which the lobes of tho brain hnd been  sewed hnd decayed.  Then a law was passed forbiddLag  the construction of any more combination men.  THEBR SINGLE AND DOUBLE DBSC BEARINGS ARE THE ftSOST DURABLE.

Can it be -wondered that the poor  girl was astonished, disappointed, in  the man who had so recently come to  her to kindle those hopes of marriage  and borne which are born in every  woman? Omnium called upon her the  next day and was "coldly received.  Had the two heard a remark of Professor Sweigler when Omnium was being put together they would have understood the strange action, "This Is  a portion of the brain," the professor  had said, "of Sam Tucker, the most  daring fireman in the department. He  has taken twenty medals for bravery  at fires." And the professor inserted  some gray matter in the cranium before him.  Omnium explained to Miss Thomp'  son that when he heard the fire alarm  and saw the truck dash by he felt au  unconquerable impulse to get on the  truck and go to the lire. He regretted  leaving her aJone, but could not help  it.   Whereupon she forgave him,  licconciliiitions are always dangerous, and it proved so in this instance.  Omnium told her that he loved her,  clasped her iu his arms and begged  her to marry hi in.  Her answer was (hat. first, he must  make, known who he was; second, his  means, and if these were satisfactory  to her she would couseut to a trial engagement  Omniuin after a few moments*  thought told her that he' would prepare a statement for ber embodying  the information she asked for. The  truth Is he knew nothing about himself and thought it necessary to do a  job of thinking ou the matter. He  left her, promising to bring the facts  the next evening. He had hired a  room and went there from .Miss  Thompson. Throwing himself into an  easy chair, be began to think.  The first person he remembered being was Evan Drake. He recalled  working in a counting room as a man  of that name. Then being addressed  as Dr. Harwood came glimmering in  bis brain. Corporal Horgan was the  next identity he felt, and this gave  way to Julius, a colored man.  "Great heavens." he exclaimed, "la  there negro blood in my veins?"  ne examined his nails and the palms  of his hands, but could see no traces  of such an inheritance. This comforted him.  How it happened Omnium himself  could never explain. He remembered  jotting down the names as they occurred to him of persons he seemed to  have been, and he recalled addressing  ���������a note to Miss Thompson beginning,  "The information as to myself promised you is"��������� Then followed tbe name  Omnium/after which he had written  the word alias, adding six other names.  He had evidently got confused at a  consciousness of having been so many  different persons and did not know  what he was doing, for the next morning Miss Thompson received the list  of his names through the mull.  "What Is It?" asked a friend who  was with her nt the time, seeing her  turn pale.  "Don't ask  me!"  moaned  the poor  girl.  "Do (ell mo."  "My lover confesses to six aliases.  He's a crook."  Miss Thompson's friend after laboring with her for hours finally Induced  her to promise that she would never  see her lover again and that she would  send his note to the police,  Tbe escape of Omnium from the Institute occasioned coiisternatlon among  the professors who hifd constructed  blm. They could not know what he  would do and feared some trouble  would result from his being nt liberty  for which they would be held responsible. One morning Dr. Tunshiittor,  Ph. D., while looking nt the morning paper noticed that a man had been  arrested with half a dozen aliases to  his name. lie was u puzzle to the police. Neither (he name Omnium nor  any of the aliases except that of a  murderer who had been sentenced to  be executed and of whose execution  thero was no record was known to tho  authorities. No one knew what to do  with him.  Dr. Tunshutter threw down his paper, called a carriage and drove at  once to tho office of tho superintendent of police. To his request that  Omnium be returned at once to tho  A Terrible Threat.  An engineering operation uptown  made it necessary a few days ago for  ������ne of the workmen to hold another  on a rope halfway dawn a deep well.  A. fall would probably have been fatal,  and Patrick kept tlie rope tight and  steady while Terence made the dangerous descent.  After a quarter of an hour Patrick's  attention wandered to something'else.  Instinctively he kept hold of the rope,  but he did not hear Terence calling  to him that it was time to pull him up  until his- fellow worker raised his  voice in  angry protest.  "Pull me up," called Terence.  "Pull me up, I tell ye. If ye don't  pull me up, drat ye, I'll cut the rope,  and then where'll you be?"

" Mr. Frank Nelson, who in addition  to being the best known race-starter  in Canada is sporting editor of The.  Toronto Globe, an old lake sailor and  several other things, beside, was one  of the chief witnesses against the "Miller anti-betting bill in the recent special enquiry at Ottawa. After he had  given his evidence, Mr. AV. E. Raney  of Toronto, who represented the religious interests back of the measure,  approached Nelson in the corridor  and said:  "Look   here.   Nelson,   it's  all  very  well for you to testify'as you did, but  Artificial Marble  The Italians have devised a method  of t manufacturing artificial marble.  Catania, the centre of the industry,  is overlooked by the great volcano  Etna, and this mountain has furnished  part of the material employed. Common white sandstone is cut into the  desired shapes and these are placed in  j an iron tank upon a heavy wire grat-  ' ing. Then the tank is filled with a  molten mixture of volcanite asphalt  and coal-tar. This is kept boiling for  thirty-six hours, when the stones are  taken out, cooled, dried, and polished.  It is difficult, say the.experts, to distinguish stones thus treated from genuine black marble, but the cost is  much less.

"Well," replied Nelson, "there's a  good deal of difference of opinion  everywhere as to what constitutes an  objectionable character. Now I used  to belong to a very fine organization  and it specified only two classes of  people which it would not admit to  membership under any consideration.  Would you like to know what they  were?"  "Yes," said Mr. Raney.  "One was the liquor seller.".  "Quite right," said Mr. Raney.  "What  was  the other?"  "The lawyer," said Nelson.  And what he said was true, for the  organization to which Nelson belonged and which excluded both lawyers  and liquor sellers was the Knights of  Labor.  nice all over.

Queen Anne, for  instance, was completely under the  sway of Sarah Jennings, Duchess of  Marlborough, and Mistress of the  Rob^s. This lady decided everything  for her mistress, from questions of  state to the cut 'of a gown or the  color of a ribbon; and it grew to be a  common saying that "Queen Anne  reigns, but Queen Sarah governs."  When a new"party comes into power the vacation of office on the part  of old Ministers forms always quite  . a touching scene. It is customary for  tltose who are retiring to meet their  successors personally, and to explain  to them tlte general condition of affairs. Official books, documents, insignia of office���������all are surrendered  by those vacating office, the hand of  the sovereign is kissed by the newly  appointed Ministers , and thus the !  .transformation is affected.  When the first day of the meeting  of a new Parliament follows hard  upon a general election, it frequently  happens that the front Government  banches present a very empty appearance. This is due to an/old statute  which enacts that when a member of  the House of Commons accepts an  office of profit under the crown he  thereby vacates his seat in Parliament; so that it becomes necessary  for Ministers to seek re-election in  their own constituencies before they  can take their places in the.House.

Another Modern Miracle  Locomotor Ataxia Cured  .. The Sufferer Had Been Given Up as Incurable by Several  Doctors-Hospital Treatment Also Failed���������Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills Worked the Miracle.   <  Before the discovery of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, locomotor ataxia  was considered an incurable disease. It hns been fully demonstrated,  however, that this disease can be cured through the use of these pills,  where the treatment is persisted in, and the directions carefully followed..  _ Locomotor ataxia is a disease of the spinal cord, and .first shows itself  in an inability -to ^tand erect when the eyes are closed, or in the dark.' It  is characterized by peculiar disturbances of the gait, nnd difficulty.'in'.governing, the .'motions, of the legs. One of the commonest and earliest signs is  a tired feeling,, particularly noted in the knees and ankles. This sensation  . in provoked by slight exertion, and is not relieved by rest. Often a nuuib  feeling is associated with it, nnd these two symptoms are always present  in'the: early stages. As the disease progresses, there is an increase hi the  duration and extent of the numb feelings, covering ut times the foot alone,-  then extending to the leg. The disease-is usually of slow ..growth,", and the  increase and intensity of the symptoms is not noticed, but* its progress is  constant, and generally approaches a total lack of feeling in the legs, causing a wobbling gait and an entire inability to govern the steps.���������"���������".-. As - the  disease progresses thc patient loses all control over bowels and water,.and  becomes utterly helpless, and litis to be cured for like a child.  In proof of the power of Dr. Williams' Pink Tills to cure this terrible  malady, Mrs. Sarah .June Ruller, of Antler, Sask., says: "For seven years  from 1900 to 1907, my son James was ufllicted with locomotor ataxia... During that time he *.yas treated by several of the best doctors in the West, but  tlieir treatment failed to be of any benefit, nnd.lie kept growing worse and  worse, till finally he lost all control of his limbs, and could not move at all.  I had to carry him from his bed to n chair, where I would have to tie him,  to enable him to sit up. He was as helpless as an infant; he lost nil control of liis kidneys and bowels, and we .daily looked for death to relieve him  of his suffering. In 1805 we sent him to Brandon Hospital, hoping that  the treatment there would benefit him. In this, though, .we were disap-  pointed> nnd the hospital doctor advised me to take him home, as they, said  they could do nothing for him. At this time a friend 'advised the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. Being willing to try anything in the hope of finding  relief for my boy, 1 bought a supply. In less than three months I noted a  slight improvement in his condition. In six months he could walk once more  and from that on the improvement continued, till now he is fully cured nnd  once more able to attend school and do the chores about the house. What  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have clone for him is truly wonderful, nnd I would  stnmgly recommend them to all sufferers, for they most certainly saved  my boy's life."  , -In substantiation of what Mrs. Ruller says, Mr. A. E. Steele, the well-  known lumber and coal dealer of Antler, writes: "With reference to whut  Mrs, Ruller snys concerning her son's cure by Pink Pills, I have no hesitation in saying that what she snys is .absolutely true in every particular, as  I am personally acquainted with the case." ,..;���������.  This great cure is not the only one performed by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. They have brought thousands back to health and strength after  some of the best doctors in the country have been forced to give up the  case as incurable. Not only in enses of locomotor ataxia, but in cases of  partiul paralysis, sciatica, acute rheumatism, and many other severe ailments have they been successful. The whole secret of their wonderful  success is in tlieir power to make rich, red, health-giving blood���������the one essential for good health. The pills are sold by till medicine dealers, or direct  by mail nt 60 cents a box, or six boxes for $2.50, from The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co,, Brockville, Ont.   -  So Says E. R. Parsons, writing in the  Dry  Farming Congress '  Bulletin  Tins fall I have received so many  letters of the same tenor that an answer through the Bulletin would seem  desirable. One farmer1 writes: "I  have been plowing my land about  five inches, following strictly all the  rules laid down for the conservation  of moisture, but getting only about  ten .bushels to the acre, which is'  hardly payable. How can I increase  my.yield?" The trouble with this  man is the trouble with all���������farming  too much on the surface. Deep plowing, deep rooting, and holding the  moisture where it cannot evaporate,  is the only antidote.  Besides the loss of moisture engendered by shallow plowing, we have to  consider an equally serious evil���������the  combustion of humus. There is nothing.facilitates this as much as'shallow plowing and frequent .shallow  tilling.  Secretary Wilson has already drawn  our atention to this by denoting it as  '"a'Vicious system of farming," and  the only way around it, as I pointed  out at the time, is by plowing deeper  and cultivating the fallow less, but  putting, it in belter shape for accumulating moisture.  . In many places our sandy loams  are already becoming exhausted and  so devoid of humus that some of our  farmers say it docs not pay to plow  them deeply.  Humus is a carbon compound, and  when the oxygon of the air attacks it  it becomes carbon dioxide���������the carbonic acid gas so deadly to human  life, so indispcnsible to plant life. '  In dry climates, when humus.is at  or near the surface, this combustion  can go on unimpeded; but in humid  climates it is much slower on account  of the water film around each particle  which protects it from the oxygen.  Therefore, it is plain that, in order  fo save our humus, we must keep it  damp, keep it away from the atmosphere, bury it as deeply as possible.  This'element of our soils is found  almost entirely on the surface, being  a product of the sod,' and every atom  of it that finds its way into the atmosphere is a dead loss to the farmer.  Pure humus is said to be able to  hold 200 per cent, of water, whereas  some soils will not hold over 20 per  cent, without leaching.  Some farmers will contend that  deep plowing on their soils does not  bring results, and there is much truth  in-this, for often tlieir last chance to  raise a crop is to skim the surface  again and use up the last particle of  humus. But this, of course, is burning the candle at both ends. The  remedy'is to plow deep at the start,  incorporate the surface humus with  10 inches of.soil, and then if too thin'  to, raise fair crops plow under more"  green material until the results are  satisfactory.  The most handy crop for this work  is fall rye, because it can be raised  during the winter months nnd plowed  under when a font high in time for  planting the regular crops. They say  in Germany that land that will not  respond to deep plowing is not agricultural soil, but where this is the  case through lack of humus, it enn be  remedied, for our soils are usually  rich in all the mineral elements, and  barnyard manure and green crops will  supply thc other. A soil that is becoming exhausted for want1 of humus  can be planted with alfalfa, which will  eventually replenish it; but in order  to- obtain a stand, 8 to 10-inch plow-'  ing is necessary, and if the soil that  is turngd up is poor and thin, a top  dressing of rotten manure of old corral dirt is the thing before drilling  the seed in. By this method I have  raised alfalfa on a sand bar, and after  six years plowed it up and took off  a crop" of oats, nnd then back into  alfalfa again, this time without manuring.  The hardest and most unpopular  work that we have ahead of us is to  convert' the farmers of the West to  deep plowing. It took England 40  years to do this, and Germany 49. In  the meantime the average production  of small grain increased from 11  bushels to 40 and 45, nnd potatoes in  the islaYid of Jersey on land plowed  16 inches and fertilized with seaweed  for humus go from 600 to 800 bushels  per acre. In order .to obtain a lease  on farming land in the above counties, the tenant has to enter into a  contract to plow deep, rotate his  crops, and put back into thc soil what-  he takes out.  In this country, for the accumulation of moisture and the conservation  of humus, deep plowing is absolutely  necessary, and at the same time remarkably profitable; and in the exceptional case, where the land is too  thin,, it will. pay a hundred-fold to  fertilize it until you have n fairly rich  seed bed 10 inches deep.  From' the' lighthouse at Lobster  Cove Head, -Bonne Bay, Newfoundland, Mrs. W. Young sends an experience of Zam-Buk, which should  certainly act as a. true beacon light,  guiding all sufferers from skin , dis-  sease to a safe harbor of refuge.  Mrs. Young says: "I suffered with  eczema for seven vears, and to my  great delight Zam-bJk has cured me.  The disease started on my breast, and  spread until it extended over my  back. The itching and burning���������  especially when the affected parts  were warm���������was terrible; and yet  when the eruption was scratched or  rubbed, it turned to bad sores, and  caused great pain. I went to a doctor and tried various prescriptions,  but seemed to get no benefit, so tried  another doctor. Again I got no relief, so tried a third doctor, nnd then  a fourth. Although they nil did their  best for p*.e I got no relief from my  pain.  "Seven years* is a long time to  suffer, and I had got used to the  thought that I never 'would be cured  when I saw a report in 'The Family  Herald' telling how beneficial Zum-  Buk was in cases of skin diseases. I  thought there would be no harm in  giving this balm a fair trial, and  bought some;  "Well, from the use of the very  first box I saw Zam-Buk was going  to do me good. I persevered with it,  and the improvement' it worked in  my condition was ronlly wonderful.  It eased the irritation, stopped the  pain, and the sores began to dry up  and disappear. In short, I found  Zam-Buk all that was claimed for it,  and within a very short time it worked a complete cure in my case."  Not only for eczema, but for ulcers,  abscesses, varicose veins, bad leg,  poisoned wounds, cuts, cold sores,  chapped places" piles, ringworm,  children's eruptions, burns, scalds,  and all skin injuries and diseases,  Zam-Buk will be found unequalled.

INFANTILE  PARALYSIS  A   Germ   Disease   Which   is   Baffling  the Doctors and Alarming the  People Generally  It may be said that doctors are  only agreed on two points regarding  this much dreaded disease.  First, that it is a germ "disease and  second, like all germ diseases can  only be fought with pure, rich blood.  Prevention is always the better wa'y  and that is why we are always talking about the wisdom of keeping, the  blood pure and rich ancl the nerve?  healthy and strong by using Dr  Chase's Nerve Food.  Rich, rod blood is a deadly foe to  disease germs whether they are germs  of infantile paralysis, of ^ colds, of  consumption or any other'disease.  Don't -let the blood get thin and  watery. Don't let the nerves get exhausted. The risk is too great. Every  dose of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food goes  to the formation of a certain amount  of pure, rich blood. For this reason  you are certain to benefit by this-  treatment.  You need not wait until you have  some form of paralysis before testing  this great medicine. Be warned by  headaches, sleeplessness, irritability,  failing memory and power of concentrating the "mind. "Restore the system  while still you have something to  build on.

What distinguishes Hildenborough from every  other village in England is the "Hildenborough Club" nnd the "Village  Players," which have freed the village from that deadly dullne.-s that is,  characteristic of a majority of small  settlements.  Th������ "Village Players of Hildenborough" - are famous throughout  England. Many noted actors have  witnessed their acting. ��������� Among them  have been Sir Henry -Irving, Sir  Squire and r Lady Bancroft, Lady  Beerbohm Tree and Mr. and Mrs.  Kendal and others, all of whom have  ���������declared themselves amazed at .the  histrionic talent displayed. There  were no women in the compjiny nt  first. Later on they .participated as  the company grew capable of greater  efforts. So great.now is its skill thnt  the London daily newspapers of consequence always send their critics to  all first-night performances. Yet  these workingmen are their own instructors, and have never had the  assistance o'f either a professional  actor or stage manager. Some of  them were never in n theatre in  their lives. The plays, every accessory and the music have their origin  in  the village.  The "Players" always devote the  six weeks before Christmas lo rehearsals. Every evening is used.  On Sunday evenings knotty problems  are discussed after the church service, which is held in the club theatre.' The proceeds of the company's  public performance in the six weeks  following Christmas go a lon^ way  toward enabling the club to spend  large sums of money during the whole  of the year without much call upon  the scantily lined pockets of the villagers. ��������� There was a time when many  of the villagers got drunk regularly  in order to 'keep themselves from remembering that there" "was- nothing  else for them to do.  Eveiy possible need of the community ��������� is intended to be embraced  'by the Village Club. It is a night  school, a playroom for adults, a sick  benefit and burial society, a library,  reading room, common parlor, a mishap benevolent fund, an orchestral  society, debating society, .cricket club,  foptball club, chess, checkers,.quoits,  cycling, fishing and other clubs, a  bank, and a taxpayers' association-  all rolled into one. No villager lias  been known to.get intoxicated sipce  the club .got hold of the place. Refreshments of all kinds are sold at  the clubhouse' practically at cost  price. There are no paid servants.  Even the cleaning is done in turn by  volunteers on the weekly Cleanliness  Committee.  The annual dues are-5s. ($1.20).  All the villagers belong,. women as  well as men. The institution has  nearly a thousand members.  All the members' savings in the  bank are invested in loans to members, and the bank conducts a building society to' enable members-' to  own their own houses. The club is  the soul of- the village. There is no  part of the village life .in which it  does not participate, from the growing of the biggest, potatoes and cabbages, and the handsomest roses,  down to the best batting averages at  cricket, and the longest throw with a  cricket ball, from -the handsomest  baby of the .year tc the-, prettiest  home-made frock. /  The orchestra started with two  fiddles. For a while afterward every  instrument was a solo- instrument.  Now there are weekly concerts by an  excellent balanced band, led by the  organist of the parish church.  The village schoolmaster was the  father of the club. He wrote tho first  play and the organist composed the  music. The policeman painted-the  scenery. Fcr many a .night the first  rehearsals were something awful.  Tlie men thought it was neces-iary to  "act," and they could not. When at  last they realized they had only to be  natural they achieved" the touch of  genius.  What Hildenborough has done can  be accomplished by any village that  will try. It is only necessary to start,  and to keep in view the fact that-  the main object to be attained is  simple happiness, and that to gain  it each must be helpful to all and all  to each.  m  fTEAOT  WHITE,  UGttT  Tbe Rayo Lamp Isa high grade lamp, sold at a low price,  Th������r������ are lumps that loost'more, Bat there is no better lamp nsade at ������ny  prise.- Oonatrnotod of lolld brass; nickel pUtad���������easily,leapt clean; as  ornament to any room in an/ home.

Centuries ago Russia and the European continent were swept by an epidemic    of   an    influenza    type    that  passed into history.      Now "and then  it cropped out again in limited areas.  Over twenty    years    ago    the  whole  world   was  swept  by  this  same  disease in an: aggravated form and generally, named   "La   Grippe."    Since  then  year  by year  we have  known  and experimented    with    the Grippe  germ in all its forms and force.

Thk founder of the Christian  Science church, Mrs. Eddy left a  fortune valued at nearly $3,000,-  000.    Beyoud tbe cavil of a doubt  this demonstrates that it pays to  cultivate loye, lite and truth. People will,pay well for religion if  you  give   them- the   kind   that  pleases.   Christain Science when  it is fully understood should make  all the world wealthy.  The cyanide plant,at;the Nap  oleon mine is running in a highly  satisfactory manner. It was  shut down for "a short time this  week in order to make a few  slight mechauical.changes.-  L/ast week the Grauby smelter  treated 24,472 tons of ore, making the treatment this year to  date, 344,448 tons. In order to  conserve the coke supply two  furnaces were blown .out last  week.  A station is being cut and preparations made to develop the  rich strike made in the Big Tun.  nel last week, The ore is worth  $110 a ton. It assays *31 gold,  191 *90 silver, and 2'7 iu copper.  No assay was made for lead.  The Mother Lode mine, near  Greenwood, has enough ore in  sight to ship 1,000 tons every day  for six years. It is possible to  break down 2,000 tous of ore  every day in the Mother Lode,  but the capacity of getting it out  of the mine is only equal to half  that quantity.

Address ali letters to The  Ledge, Greenwood, B. C.  R. T. LOWERY,  PUBLISHER.  GREENWOOD, B C, APRIL 20, ran  The   world is not   devoid   of  some great souls for the Inland  Herald says that the visit of Mrs.  Steunenberg, the aged widow of  Ex-govenor Frank Steunenberg of  Idaho, to  the cell of Harry Orchard, the coniessed murderer of  her husband, and her assurance  to Him of her unreserved forgiveness   for the greatest   injury he  could have done her, is an  example of Christian  charity  which  has   few   parallels   in   history.  Charity is not only the highest  mark of a real Christain spirit but  is one of the most rare.1   It was  one thing to entertain such  forgiving   thoughts;  it  was mani-  festly'-'nobler to express them to  one who had so cruelly wronged  her.    The   Lords   Prayer   must  needs "mean   infinitely   more' to  such a soul  after such .an utterance. ���������  The   Greenwood   smelter   has  enough  of  coke on the ground  and in  the bins to run the furnaces   until   June.     Last   week  1,000 tons arrived from the east,  and 4,000 more tous are in transit,  In addition, there are 1.000 tons  of western  coke on wheels   for  this smelter, between Greenwood  Bud Coleman.    The eastern coke  comes iu  fine racked cars of 40  tons capacity.    The Pensylvania  coke is much superior to  that ot  Coleman,  and  comes across the  continent with hardly any loss of  weight, while a car of Coleman  coke   will frequently lose three  or four tons,   owing to the fine  particles being jarred   lose    by  I the   railway   journey   from   the  rPass to Greenwood.

And further take notice that action, under  Section 37, must be commenced before the Issue-  ance of such Certificate of Improvements.  Dated this 1st day of April, A. D. 1911  THEN AND NOW.  The going of J. E. McAllister to  New York, removes a familiar figure  from the stirring life of the Boundary.  Since he came to Greenwood seven  years ago he has worked an expansive change in the affairs of the B. C.  Copper Co. Then the company  only had two 300 ton furnaces, the  Mother Lode mine, and many unpaid bills. Now the smelter has a capacity of 2000 tons a day, and a dozen  mines. Then the matte was shipped  to Tacoma. Now a converter turns  out blister copper 99 fine. Then the  company could not pay its bills in  town. Now it burns $2000 worth of  coke a day, pays the C. P. R. $333 an  hour for freight, pays dividends, owns  two automobiles, and has money in  the bank. Further comment is unnecessary, for results speak louder  than taffy woven into words and run  through a printing press.  E. G.   Warren, the new guiding  spirit of the local affairs of the B. C.  Copper Co., is a young and energetic  man, with an extensive knowledge of  the practical workings of mines, smelters and electricity.    He is endowed  with rare   executive, ability,   has   a  charming magnetic  personality, and  can mix with the multitude upon any  and all occasions.    Under his regime  we look for still greater prosperity to  cast its mantle over the upward  and  onward march of thc B- C Copper  Toronto  has more  churches  than almost any other city in the  world,  and yet the president of  the Methodist Young Men's Association, who has traveled around  the globe, says that it is the most  immoral city he has seen, except  Paris.   Evidently   there   is   too  much church in Toronto, and not  enough of God.    People cau have  a   plethora of religious systems  without being   moral,   and   too  much church tends to degeneracy  just the same as too much music,  The people of Toronto run to excess in matters of creed, church-  lanity and puritanism.    In their  zeal for chanting hymns and bowing their heads on Sabbath, they  shut out real goodness by frosting their souls with bigotry, fanaticism  and   a hatred for those  who do not do as they preach. The  public libraries are not opened on  Sunday,    nor the   art  galleries.  Children are not permitted to play  games in the parks, on that day,  and he who is bold enough to sell  a  paper or a postage stamp on  Sunday is liable to be arrested and  fined   or  jailed.    Little   wonder  that Toronto has gone to the bad.  The city is in need of more real  religion, and fewer religious systems.  BOUNDARY MINES  Co.  The United States has put a  tariff on Mexican bullets.  JAMES C. DAI^K.  Bebr and socialism haye made  Milwaukee famous.  TherB isn't much hot air about  the spring we are having this  year.  Three shifts are worked at the  Napoleon cyanide plant.  The Rawhide is shipping daily  to the Greenwood smelter between 700 and 800 tons of ore.  A strike was made on the Clifford claim last week. It is owned  by Pat Hickey and Ola Lofstad,  It is claimed that the Republic  mines are now shipping 8,000  tons of ore a month, valued at  $150,000.  There are now 30 men working  at the Lone Star mine, and the  tramway is working in a satisfactory manner.  The prospects of the Argo tunnel are looking brighter every  day and a large chute of ore mav  be struck at any time.  The Big Tunnel has alreadv  used up a carload ot rails, and  this week bought 2,000 feet from  the Golden Eagle mine on the  North Fork.  The Van Auda smelter is making tests with oil for smelting  copper ores.  Wm. Schmock will develop a  gypsum deposit that he owns  near Princeton.  The* Van Roi mill "near Silver-  ton will crush and concentrate  4,000 tons of ore a month.  Heinze has become interested  in the Porcupine district of Ontario. He will float a gold mining company. The company will  have a Canadian charter in order  to look more inviting to the capitalist from Great Britain.  The   stock   of   the   Standard  Mining Co., of Silverton, B. C,  is now being sold on the curb in  New   York.      The   company   is  capitalized   for   $2,000,000  with  shares at par value of $1.    As  shares were sold last   week   at  from $1.50 to $1.75 a share it  looks as though selling stock was  a- good business,    A New York  report   says   that   Patsy   Clark  turned   down   the   Standard   17  years ago.    This is a mistake.  It was the Reco that he abandoned after spending $9,000 on it.  He had a bond on the Reco dur-  the early days of the Slocan  for  $75,000.  The Northwest Mining News,  published in Spokane, makes the  following comment: "Unless zinc  and lead are to be considered  in  connection with the proposed reciprocity     agreement     between  Canada and the United States,  the people of British Columbia  cannot be expected to look with  much favor on the treaty.    Quite*  naturally such a measure must be  reciprocal to be acceptable to both  parties,    The Associated Boards  of Trade of Eastern British Columbia point out in a resolution  that the total zinc   tonnage of  Canada for the year 1910 was less  than three quarters of one per  cent, of the total produced in the  United States for the year,  and  that under the   most   favorable  conditions it would not amount to  more than 2l/z per cent, for years  to come.    We hold, as we always  have done,  that the,removal of  the import duty from both  lead  and   zinc   from   Canada   would  create no change in the prices of  those metals in this country, and  under the present proposed reciprocity agreement the people of  British   Columbia   should   urge  such a measure.".  etc.    No comment is necessary.

It is proposed to  raise a fund of more than $2,000 for  prizes, and the success of the fair is  already assured.  C. McCarthy was fined $20 today  for interfering with W. G. Watson  when he was running the moving  picture machine at the Star Theatre.  Canada's Buffaloes.  An Interesting Letter.  No doubt officials of railways,  especially those under construction in this country, receive some  ore may J very interesting and curious communications, but the following is  about as rich as we have seen.  An endeavor has been made to  follow the copy closely regarding I ullllcs Ul  capitals,   punctuation,   spelling, I Spokane.  A man working for the C. P. R.  was injured one day last week at  Shields. He was placed on the westbound train, and a wire sent to have  an ambulance ready at Grand Forks.  Arriving, at the Forks no ambulance  was in readiness, and the injured man  had to lie out in the cold in the mail  wagon for some time, before being  driven to the hospital. From a humane standpoint this does not look exactly right.  When A. H. Noycs quit the journalistic arena in Greenwood he owed  a few people for cash, wood, wages,  paper, etc.    These people have not  been paid,  and they arc becoming  anxious to know what was done with  the stationery that was taken out of  the Times office during thc night of  March 9.    They would like to see  Mr.   Noyes come to the front like a  little man, and explain matters, that is  if he can break away from hisarduous  duties of selling coal mining stocks in  Edward  Ellis,   superintendent  of the Wainwright Buffalo Park,  has submitted his annual report  to the Dominion Parks Commissioner.   In this includes a census  of the animals living in the enclosure of the park at the present  time.    There are 808 buffalo, 7  elk, 35 deer and 3 antelope.   During the  past   year, 110   buffalo  were added by natural increase,  while the  loss   was but   seven.  There are now at Elk Park,  Lamont, 48 head of buffalo, and  at  Banff 24,   which makes   the  total number of bison in captivity  in Alberta, 881.  O TEMPORA!  O MORES  Editor Ledge:  Dear Sir���������When Mental was here  he hypnotised a man, and the subject  slept all day in the window of P.Burns & Co.'s meat shop, on a cot,  and properly covered.    This exhibition of science was no worse than a  dead lamb hanging in the window,"  yet Mr. Hilton rushes into print, denounces the spectacle as revolting and  shocking to children, and calls upon  the Mayor to prevent such sights in  the future.    Why all this fuss about a  sleeping man,   when   there   are   so  many really evil things that need to be  kalsomined or eliminated?    It is the  work of a clergyman to point the way  to a better life, but not by denouncing  trivial matters.    If Mr. Hilton wishes  to abas the evils that corrupt, corrode  and  demoralize the human race he  will  have to work  overtime,   even  with the Mayor as a side partner.  Yours truly,  TIMOTHY DORRIGAN.  Greenwood, April 17.  liwirt^^  KM--
