Charles Biesel and Bernard McDonald were lined up to bo shot in  Mexico when a messenger arrived  with an order from Huerta to release them. A minute later and  they would have been dead. As  McDonald is a British subject the  Canadian government may demand  some satisfaction from, Mexico.  Joseph McDonald, general manager of the Consolidated Mining  & Milling   Co.,   of   Guanajuato,  Mexico,  and a brother of Bernard  McDonald,  formerly of Rossland,  has  been acquitted in Juneau by  the   jury that tried' him  on  the  charge of murdering N. C Jones,  a mission   worker,   on   May   14,"  1902.     The   jury   was   ont   two  hours.     McDonald   pleaded Belf-  defence.   He was then manager of  the   Treadwell mine.     His   witnesses swore that Jones,  who insisted on the Treadwell mine being closed on Sundays, menaced  Mr. McDonald with a pistol before  McDonald shot him.     After   the .  tragedy a coroner's jury exonerated   McDonald.    In   December,*  1912, relatives of Jones re-opened  '  the case and-McDonald was "indicted."  He was arrested in Mex- -  ico in March 1913," and paid the  expenses of his own extradition, l  the " Mexican   government* being  short of funds.  Send for a catalogue of headstones and monuments, made by  the Kootenay Monumental Works,  Nelson, B. C.  Change in Business  The purchase of the Russell-  Law-Caulfield Co., by the firm of  L. A. Smith & Co., is in line with  the progressiveness which has always been evinced by Mr. Smith  during the time he has been in the  Boundary. He came to Anaconda  in 1896 and has been in business  continuously, in Anaconda since  that time. His rise has been  gradual but steady and perhaps is ���������  due, almost entirely, to his keen  desire to satisfy those who have  traded with him. In fact, "Smith  and satisfaction" have been synonymous, for years.  His further success is assured  and Greenwood welcomes so progressive and popular a business  man as Mr. Smith.  Makes a Strike  After .prospecting for years in  many camps, Henry Bretzins, a  Slocan miner, who started out  from Hazelton a couple of weeks  ago, made his first big find a few  hours after he began prospecting  on the Cronin trail, in the Babino  range, camping 24 miles from Moricetown, he started out to get a  view from the top of the hill.  Finding galena float, he traced it  up for a short distance, discovering  a ledge apparently five feet wide  and exposed for a length of 750  feet. On the hanging wall was ������  streak of steel galena three inches  wide, the, same ore occurring in  streaks and bunches throughout  the vein. The lucky prospectoi  staked four claims, calling thegrou*.  the Debenture, and returned to  Hazelton to record. He packed ou<  a quantity of the surface ore, whici  is of excellent appearance am.  carries $78 in silver and lead. In  expectation of finding more mineral in the neighborhood, an urn  ber of prospectors havo gone to the  scone of tho strike. ��������� Ominec.

Tourists are loud in their  praises of the good roads iu B.C.  Few countries in the world have  better roads than this province,  and none spend more money than  them.  Success.  When  people write to me asking for tbe secret of my success,  I  always tell them that I owe everything to a love for aud mastery of  dotails.    A man  playing chess or  billiards or golf must attend to details if he wants to win���������why must  he not do so iu  business?   Everyone ought to be able to keep his  own books and know exactly to a  penny how the money comes in and  how it goes out.   I have known  many bright intelligent men  who  never really   knew  all   the facts  about their own affairs.   They did  not actually know when they were  m a k i n g rn o n ey on a certai n opera-  tion and when they   were  losing.  Such business men live in a  fool's  paradise; they hate to study their  hooks and  face the truth.    They  . are often.brilliant at a singleBtroko  but they cannot keep up the game  simply because they aro  weak in  detail, and they are weak in detail  because they have never studied its*  principlea.*��������� John D. Rockefeller.  People who write books, edit  newspapers and magazines and deliver lectures, as well as all who  discusB political economy and social  problems seem to have a notion iu  the base of their brain somewhere,  that there is nobody Co speak of it  in the world except the folks who  live in cities.  Among the reasons why men  flock to cities may be the fact that  when they go to tho country they  pass out of the range of the literary  opera glass. Literature is pur  conscious self-expression. We  want to be written about. Aud to  be a country-jake is to drop off the  earth. A recent book "New Lives  for Old" by William Carlton, betokens a welcome change. It is  about the country���������how it can be  made livable. He tells how he  bought a farm in one of those distressing New England communities  blew the resurrection trumpet, aud  eventually made all the farms in  neighborhood pay and all the peo-  glad they were farmers. The  | means by which he accomplished  this was���������organization.  It is only by organization that  any community comes into social  consciousness. From ["organization  comes now not only power but the  joy of life.  The curse of the country has  been the same isolating individualism that makes cities corrupt.  Almost all other forms of btiai-  nesb have felt the call of the age  and have Bought the advantages of  consolidation. Compare the modern department store with the little  shops of London a century ago, the  steel truBt with the village smith,  the railway combines with the  stage coach. Yet the farmers still  linger in the antiquated field of  independence and competition.  Various schemes have been tried  to get the tillers of the soil to solidity. There was the grange idea,  there were other co-operative plans.  But the oue thing that has not  been tried to any extent is the oue  thing that is the very genius of this  country���������organized democracy:! a  local community getting together,  uot in churches parties or "movements," but as a company of human beings to help one another,  and thus to advance the welfare of  all.  The one great drawback to rural  life is loneliness.  Whatever will best relieve this  will do moBt towards bringing the  people  "back to the land."   Already the telephone and automobile  have helped   a  deal.     But that  which will help most of  all   is to  get the country people to realize  democracy, to feel that they  can  get together, not as fellow sectarians, lodge members or partizans,  but as citizens aud human beings.  The narrowness, bigotry,  moddlo-  Bomenesa, and intolerance of early  days are passing.   These were the  expulsive   forces  that   drove lint  youth from the farm  to the freedom of the city.

Mrs. Goodwin of the New York Police
a Real Sherlock Holmes.
In the Woman's Home Companion'
Appears the following account of Mrs.'
Isabella Goodwin, thb famous detective In-New York citj'in connection
"vith the police department:
���'Llnre  is  a   real   Shertock  Holmes
ivlio has been instrumental in tlie capture of hundreds of lawbreakers with-
���mt smoking a single pipeful of tobac-
���'o.   She is Mrs. Isabella Goodwin, police matron, recently promoted to do-
tcutire of the flrst grade on the New-
York city force',with a salary of $2,250
a year in recognition of her services in
procuring the capture of the "taxicab
banrUts," whose reckless exploits had
startled the city.    Mrs. GoodwiD is a
widow,   forty-seven   years   old,   the
mother of three children, and her home
life is as peacefully busy as that of
any  village   housekeeper.    Since  the
death of her husband, a roundsman on
the police force, fifteen years ago, until, her recent promotion Mrs. Goodwin
served as a police matron, incldontally
������xercisliig her gifts as a detective In
Hiietly   gathering   evidence   against
uindreds   of   dangerous   frauds   and
"Her elder son Is a detective of the
Jrst grade, her sister Is a department
rtore detective, and her daughter also
ins already manifested ability in de-
ectlve work. When the taxicab ban-
fills, after robbing two bank messen-
Kers of $23,000, had seemingly baffled
the police Mrs. Goodwin was enlisted
in tho case. By impersonating the sister of tho landlady of a boarding
house frequented by friends of the
robbers she was enabled gradually to
pick up information that was .invaluable to the authorities in running
down the criminals. It was this case
that won her promotion and official
standing as a detective, yet through
her fifteen years of service she had already done an enormous amount ot
even more valuable though less sensational work In obtaining evidence
against over 500 dangerous swindlers
-astrologers, palmists, fortune tellers,
crystal gazers, psychics, trance mediums. Hindu magicians, quack doctors
and surgeons and others that in the
large cities prey upon foolish people,
almost unmolested because of the difficulty of proving that they actually
violate the law."

by the poet, it was composed and presented to the nobleman addressed
"upon being called up from the servants' hall, where he had been sent to

poet adds, "On presenting which he

In Germany, says the Scientific American, wood is too expensive to be burned, and it is made', into artificial silk

$4 a pound, into paper, yarn, twine,

materials for this may be bought by

householder can lay his own hardwood
floors according to his individual taste

The Bridge Tunnel  Greenwood, Aug. 11, 1913  The Editor of The Ledge  Dear Sir:  It is regretablo that Mr.  Kerr, the Engineer for the Railway Commissioners, arrived in  Greenwood to inspect the Tunnel  without advising he was coming,  and as a result no person had been  appointed to meet him, and point  out the danger likely to follow from  a low, unlighted tunnel, built at a  angle to the road loading to it.  The angle of the tunnel, I repeat, is positively dangerous to  travel, and should not have been  permitted aR the Main Automobile  Highway runs through it. ' Our  citizens have not yet realized tho  amount of travel which will pass  over this road when this main  highway is completed through the  province.  I am informed that Provincial  Government Engineer Griffiths  never sanctioned tho building of  the tunnel in its present angle.  After the presentment of the  Grand Jury had not boon heeded  I was asked by citizens of Greenwood and vicinity to take up the  matter, and I did so in the best  interests of Greenwood. ���������  T append a part of a judgement  delivered by Mr. d'Arcy Scott, the  "Deputy Chief Commissioner of the  Board of Railway  Commissioners,  observations of general interest in  his judgement. As regards subways which necessitate diversion  ho says:  "I believe they aro a hit too  dangerous unless tho angle is  sufficiently , obtuse to permit of  view through the subway from a  reasonable distance from each end.  Usually diversions in the highway  is asked by railway companies in  cases of subways at right angles to  'the tracks and thus make construction of as cheap a character  as possible. I do not see why  people traveling on an old established highway should bo called on  to submit to tho inconvenience and  danger of a diversion in the highway to save the railway companies  expense."
