Got Too Gay  North Bay, Ont., Aug. 1G.���������A  crowd of New Brunswick harvest  hands, bound .for thc western  wheat fields, on the C.P.R. annual  excursion, met with au unpleasant  reception at Caldwell, west of  North Bay this morning. When  the special train stopped at Caldwell, a gang of young men proceeded to raid the farmers' gardens near by, but wore met by a  broadside of birdshot from the guns  of farmers in ambush.

They  have come   through   from South  Dakota and  have driven all  the  way.    The band is about a hundred  strong, swarthy handsome people,  travel stained and dusty.    Then-  pieces of   furniture   were in  the  wagons,  which were also   loaded  with their families.   The noticeable feature of the band was tho  large number of children,  whose  big eyes peered out over the streets  in astonishment.    There were 18  horses drawing the various wagons  and were all sorts and sizes.    The  man addressed gave the information as to their Ddestination  and  then  without further parley   the  procession drove on to the land of  promise.���������Winnipeg Free Press.

Thinking Themes  Money has so much to do with  happiness. Not that you can buy  happiness. But the higher human  values are all tangled up with such  things as borrowing/paying, inheriting, over charging, spending  and saving.  Seventy-six per cent, of divorces  and S3 per cent, of other forms of  marital disagreement are caused  by money; 87 per cent, of the  estrangements between parents and  children; 91 per cent, of broken  friendships. SS per cent, of church  troubles; 100 per cent, of wars; and  101 per cent, of political quarrels  can be traced to money. I love  these ' accurate looking figures.  There's something about a figure  that is like a club. Next time you  have an argument use them on  your opponent. Don't hesitate;  state your figures positively; nobody can deny them; you will  bludgeon everyone to silence.   ���������  But, to speak more loosely and  truthfully, if yon want to keep a  friend never have any financial  dealings with him; not even  mentally. Don't find out his income. Don't wonder how much  lie spends. Don't borrow nor lend.  Don't evon treat.

Tiie revised edition of the New  Genesis has been issued by J. M.  McCIoskoy, "tha man from Phoenix."

Wo knew this  had been gfing on for somo time,  but did not know that it had started so far back in the early days  until wo read Tosh's book. In  his little red-covered book he  prints a vast amount of original  and compiled matter that will make  the Puritans and Presbyterians sit  up and telephone for tho police.  A Hot Roast  The following article is written  by Ernest MeGaffey and appears  in the St. Louis Mirror:  "A residence of something over  forty years in thc United States had  not impressed me wilh its desirability as a place of residence.  Where I lived in thc "temperate  zone," so-called���������hiiinm'er was a  three months humid Gehenna, and  winter a four or live months siege  of blizzards, sleet, piercing weather  and bitter discomfort. All this,  while endiirablo, was monotonous.  In the next place, I always disapproved strongly, of the manner  in which the government of the  United States was carried on. Tt  may be remarked, in passing, that  the government continued to exist  and cany ou its affairs notwithstanding my disapproval. Tn fact,  I understand it is still "flourishing," after its own peculiar fashion.  However, I have lived to see numbers of my follow countrymen of  former days somewhat restive  under present conditions. Jf there  is a millennium at hand, no one  would be heller pleased than myself.  The grounds of my dislike to conditions in tho United States are in  part as follows:  Liberty in the United States is a  theory not a  fact.    Since  the retirement of King John Rockefeller  from  the throne  of  that country  Pierpont    I.,   his   successor,, has  wielded tho  sceptre  with  an iron  hand.    It is  true those monarehs  allowed papier macho presidents to  beelected and even encouraged the  blithesome populace  to shout,  "I  see you, Bill," or *0 You Teddy"  at these gentlemen on  fe������tal occasions.      But    neither   presidents,  senates, judges nor states were ever  permitted for one. moment seriously  to interfere with the reign of those  self-constituted emperors of finance.  Occasionally    a   president    was  called  to   order   in   a   verjr   peremptory    manner    by   his   ruler.  This is history, not  assertion, as  eveiy    American   knows.    Panics  were  kept in cold storage on Wall  street to intimidate the puppets in  the AVhite House, and capital was  king.  All this, while sinster is true.  At the other end of thc scale was  labor.    Guided   as a rule by  self-  seeking demagogues,   with  a few  honorable   exceptions,   this   great  force has  made a losing  fight for  better    conditions.    It   has   been  plundered of its treasure  by absconding  officials,   and   used as  a  ladder  by    ambitious   politicians.  Unscrupulous    business    interests  have   even   hired   crooked   labor  "leaders"    to    precipitate   strikes  against their business rivals, while  the rank aud file of those striking  believed in the justice of the cause.  Between   the    upper   and    the  nether   millstones of capital and  labor the middle classes, have been  ground   to powder.    In the larger  cities of the Union, labor and capital have been  carriing on  for 25  years a conflict  which  has ranged  from desultory guerilla skirmishing  to open  civil   war.    Neither side  cared a copper for the law.    And  for that matter,   tho   laws   were  totally ineffective.  All this, while ugly, is true.  And  this  brings  me to another  branch  in  tho discussion.    As   a  lawyer of about 12 years'  practice  in a mid-Western stato, I had considerable experience with both its  civil and criminal ]'urispru(h'iH:e.   I  very early   began to advise   my  clients to keep out of the courts, for  tho reason  that the opportunities  for appeal from court to court,' the  expense and delays causod thereby,  and tho labyrinthine complexities  of a system   whore technicalities  and the curious complaisance of  the higher   courts to corporation  lawyers so often deprived litigants  of theft rights, made recourse to  the courts mostly a farce.  Tho criminal law was so olastio,  so full of loopholes, and so admin  istered for apparently, the benefit  of malefactors, that murderers were  seldom hung, and crime was appallingly prevalent. This is true of a  majority of the statefi of the United  States. No other country, unless  it bo Camorra-ridden Italy, can  show such a criminal record per  thousand.  All this while deplorable, is true.  As a party man I was a Democrat. . I might as well have been a  Republican. I was attracted by  the* Jeft'ersonian phrases, "the  greatest good to the greatest number," "equal rights to all, and  special privileges to none," and  Lincoln's iridescent verbal fallacy,  "a government of the people, for  the people, and by the people." A  ten years' experience iu practical  politics in the United States convinced me beyond all reasonable  doubt that these glittering generalities had nothing to do with running the country.  The politicians controlled everything The so-called "respectable  citizens" would not mix in politics,  however they blustered in private,  or bloviated in public. They were  content to let anyone fill the offices,  so long as they were left to make  the money. The result was what  could be expect-d. Ineoinpit n's,  grafters and ignoramuses usurped  ofliees of highest trust, and dishonesty was rampant. All this,  however it my be denied, is true.  While capital, of course, is absolute ruler over the destinies of the  United States, itcan be confidently  asserted, without the least bitter-  There  ness, that money is its god  are,   no doubt,   many creeds and  chinches iu the country, and regular   services   are    hold   in   the  churches on   Sundays���������and   other  days, but Mammon is in reality tho  favorite   deity.    A   multi-millionaire  is regarded  with   almost as  much awe and veneration as a lord.  Men  eat,   drink,  sleep   and   live  money.    A strange chatter of dollars, dollars, dollars, follows one in  the    street    cars,   theatres,   roof  gardens,   elevators,   private   resi  deuces,   shops,   stores,   houses   of  worship,   sidewalks,    restaurants,  courts and clubs, even to thejvery  cloister and the hearth,  not stopping at the baseball park* and the  prize ring, where the gossip of price  of players and size of purses fought  for, mingles with the shouts of the  frenzied spectators.  All this is sordid but true.  The United States is possessed of  a very  handsome  flag, which has  been christened   "Old  Glory" by  some of its admirers.    This flag has  beeu  used  for many   years as a  political, commercial and financial  asset.    If a citizen complained of  the prevalence of crime and the  laxity of the criminal laws, he was  indignantly     referred     to    "Old  Glory."    If he  found  fault with  corruption among courts, juries and  politicians, he was adjured to remember "Old Glory."    In all processions of capital and labor, bitter  and   irreconcilable   foes   as   thoy  were, conspicuous among the banners was "Old Glory."  If men yearned for a little less  disorder,   unrest,   venality,   class  hatred, public scandal, rioting, etc.,  they    were    reminded- that    the  United States  "was the  greatest  country on God's green footstool,  and could lick all creation with ono  hand tied behind its back," and invited to take another peep at "Old  Glory."    When    the   meat  trust  barons   poisoned  a   lot of   Uhcle  Sam's soldiers in tho Cuban war by  means of rotten canned beef, somo  of the wealthier of theso victims  were returned to their sorrowing  relatives entvrappod   in   the protecting folds of "Old Glory."  . A flag which really stands, for  justice, honor and  high ideals is a  great    thing.    "Old    Glory    has  rather   lost   caste   of late years,  though,  through no intrinsic fault  of its own.  All this, while annoying, is true.  Tho American people,  individ  ually, present-one proposition. In  tho niass, they present a totally  different proposition.   -..���������,"  Individually, the cultured American gentleman has no superior  anywhere. He iB tho peer of any  man living. You will find him  scholarly, courteous, refined, sympathetic and manly. As a comrade, no bettor; as a friend, truo  as death. His ideals are high, and  his word is his bond.  All this? while exceedingly flattering, is strictly true.  The American people in tho mass,  on the contrary, are "finished and  finite clods, untroubled by a spark."  Sharp and smart,1 I grant you; but  commonly coarse', and usually ignorant of the finer elements of  courtesy. Loud, vain, arrogant  and disputatious, they are at once  the despair of their well bred  countrymen and the delight of  those foreigners -who think they  see in such cattle the universal  "American type." They are not  even crude caricatures of ,the true  American, but they flourish apace  on the steamships, railway trains,  promenades, and in. the theatres,  art galleries, dining rooms and  hotels, sometimes far from their  native land, and always tho trail of  the dollar is over them all.  This, while unpleasant,  is true.  The standard of average intellectual and artistic taste among  the masses, in the United States is  simply grotesque. . It. is the same  standard now as the one which  dubbed Poe "the jingle man," and  discharged Walt Whitman from a  (Concluded on Next Page)  H. W. Farmer & Co.,  REAI/ ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B. C.

Hi C.  on-  viroment bind him to a certain  locality, I staid in tbe United  States long after its demerits had  palled on me. Like Daniel iu the  lion's den, I was cast there, and  made the best of it. But happening, providentially, to arrive in the  city of Victoria, British Columbia,  Canada, I found (with comparatively minor draw-backs) a condition of people, climate, government  of stability, which forcibly reminded me of the old lines;  "This is the place I long have sought,  Ami mourned because I found it not."  laws aro enforced rigidly and  quickly, without regard to wealth  or'poverty; where crimo is almost  unknown, and the punishment of  crimo swift and sure; where  character, at least at present writing, counts most in public and  private life, where the standard of  civic and commercial honoris high;  where labor troubles are practically  unknown; whore freedom is real  not imaginary;*: whero tho people  are the actual rulers, not mere  pawns in the hands-- of political  gamblers; where the climate is  ideal, all-year one, with no  tremes.of either beat or cold; where  money, base-ball, pugilism and  politics are not'the,exclusive topics  of conversation; where life is  modelled on saner arid kindlier  methods:where culture is widely diffused; where individuals in public  office are selected for ability and integrity; where newspapers and periodicals are devoid of the sensational  and the prurient; where courtesy  is the average daily bread of life;  and where, in divers -many ways,  the. United States-is double discounted as a'place'to live in, I  do not -claim these characteristics  are universal, btit they - are the  average.  All this will seem almost too  astonishing to be true' to some of  my American friends, but I can  assure them it is true.  Yet even heiv the signs of- the  times point to an approaching evil  with the'steady trend of people to  Victoria. That even is tlie growing tendency to give money ancl  display .undue preference in the  summing up of existence. To combat this foolish and fatal reasoning is tho duty of avery man and  woman who has the welfare of  business at heart; to preserve the  old fashioned ideals and aspirations  is the very life of the Dominion and  the strength of the empire.  With the differences between the,  two countries before me, as I have  indicated' it was little wonder that  I became a Canadian citizen. A  country owes something to* its  citizens, as well-as the citizen to  tho country. Judged by this  criterion, tbe United States does  not seem to me to be a great  country, except in wealth and area.  The United States is cursed today with quack reformers, quack  doctors, quack divines and quack  politicians. All of them are full of  sound and fury���������signifying nothing. Each of them is building industriously from the top down, instead of' from bottom up.

A SITTING Of tlio County Court of Yule will  beholden 111 thc Court Houso, Greenwood,  on Tuesday tlio 10th day of September, 1012, at  eleven o'clock in thc forenoon.  By order,  WALTER DEWDNEY,  Repristrar C. C. of Y.  ���������Ill  whose ideal is character, not coin.  - This is no twenty-four hour  diversion, but a process requiring  the changing of the entire present  national characteristics. It means  miny years' vigilance and effort,  and a reasonable infusion of sackcloth aud ashes.  It must begin in the home. How  much dicipline does the average  young American get���������boy or girl-  in the average American home?  How deeply do the American  schools and colleges concern themselves in teaching character as  wall as mathematics to tneir pupils?  What does "success" mean to  the average American beyond  money, power and display? Don't  get angry, and wave "Old Glory,"  but consider this question as applying not only to the rising generation  iu the United States, but to the  risen generation as well.  The country is dollarized to its  very marrow. You know it! I  know it! The golden ca-lf has his  hoofs firmly planted in the temples  as well as iu market place. With  all due respects to church, school  aud state in the United States,  aud to the average ^pwents, they  have failed to cnvolvo a national  average character of high and stern  ideals. Until this is done, the  babble about the initiative and  referendum, tho recall of judges,  or of supremo court decisions,  third parties, woman's suffrage,  single tax, government by commission or omission, is as meaningless  and incoherent as "the gibbering  of apos by tho dead sea."  ANSON McKIM  means specialization by artists and  expert ad writers who qualify for, the  work by long practice. Such is the  principal work of the Advertising  agencies like McKim's, though there  are many other branches which entail detail work beyond the ken of  the layman.  When   Ansom   McKim   opened   hia  little   office   some   twenty-two   years  ago as an advertising agent, he had  already had a large experience in the'  advertising , and   .business    ends    of  newspaperdom as Montreal representative of the Toronto-Mail and Empire,  and no one knew better than he the  difficulties    and    shortcomings    that  met the advertiser at every turn.   He  realized that bis chance of success lay  in. suggestions and honest advice in  the  taking up .of proper  newspaper  space and its utilization to the best  advantage to bring returns.   Mr. McKim met with success at the outset.  Firms   who  were   already  large   advertisers    appreciated    the    agency's  methods, and men who had never advertised before were convinced of its  necessity   if  they   were   to   compete  successfully with their more pushful  rivails, with the result that the agency  grew apace, the newspapers got more  business and the public better value.  Mark   the   contrast   between    the  English  and  Canadian  agencies.    In  Great Britain the agent buys so much  space in newspapers and  magazines  at the lowest price and sells  to the  highest bidder which obviously means  poor  returns   to  the  advertiser, "for  the    agent   has    no    responsibility,  whereas the Canadian agent, entirely,  depending on returns for continuous'  patronage, is very responsible to the-  advertiser. This to a great extent has  been brought about by McKim whose  system of coaching forced his rivals  to follow suit as well as his principle  of dealing squarely with the papers.  He made tlie proprietors tell the truth  about their circulation and  paid for  space accordingly and, what has been  a God send to many of the smaller  publications, promptly.   N*o fooling or  bunkum  about McKim;   all  must bo  above board if a journal wants to do  business   with   his   agency   and   the  newspapermen like him the better for  it all.  Mr. McKim was born in Lennox,  Ont., in 1855 so that he is in his  prime and if looks denote anything  he has .outside hard work, taken  great care of his health. He first  came to Montreal in 1878 as business  and advertising representative for  the Mail and Empire and established the McKim agency in 1889.  For recreation Mr. McKim goes in for  golf and racquets being member of the  Royal Golf Club of which he was captain for two years and the Canadian  Forest and Stream Club. He is also  member of St. James Club, Montreal.

Spokane mining men have recently  carried out development on the  Treasure Mountain mine which exposes ore of such high ..grade and  quality as to leave no doubt of the  birth of another great mining  camp. "Under the guidance of W.  Dornberg, Treasure Mountain  looms large as an ore producer.  In the face of a tunnel 104 feet in  and Newton creeks would be very  much assisted. Mr. Lambert is  deserving encouragement in this  respect. He has spent a lot of  money in former years trying to  reach the bed of Granite creek,  twice losing the dam he constructed. His success now will  act as a strong incentive to the  placer mining industry in this  section.  Charles Camsell, Dominion geologist, was in town Monday, having* come from Bridge" river, Lil-  looot district, via Merritt and Tulameen. Ho visited the diamondif-  erous district near Tulameen, but  had nothing new to add to his report still in the hands of the government printers at Gttawa, for  which many interested persons are  anxiously waiting.. Mr. Camsell  goes from here to Victoria, where  he will present a paper to the Canadian Mining Institute, which  meets there shortly. Mr. Camsell  would have been delighted to visit  a number of the camps in the  Princeton district, but his time was  limited and he took a run to Voigt  camp for a brief visit.���������Princeton  Star.  A unique case of high grade ore  quarrying is going on at thoiJtica,  where Jack Chisholm and two  men have a contract for taking out  a'nd lowering'a thousand feet a considerable quantity of ore exposed at  the apex of the No. 1 or "small"  lead.    This ore is being taken from  Those who fear the inroads of  oil on the market for coal' will  have their fears set at reft by the  fact that tho world's shipping,  half of which will traverse the  Pacific ocean, consumes annually  75,000,000 tons of coal valued at  over 8250,000,000. Of this Japan  furnishes 2,000,000 tons, and Australia 1,000,000 tons. British Columbia, with its immense coal resources, can control tho coal trade  of the Western Pacific, which  moans tho entire coasts of the  continents of North and South  America, and the coal mining industry of this province has thus an  immense and assured future beforo  it.  As to wages in Italy, the highest  paid workmen nre smiths,* who get  from 77 cents to % 1 35 a d<iy.  Among other unpleasant taxes  there used to be a tax on the English hearth. The tax collector  made his assessment by counting  tho chimneys.  length there is from 20 to 30 inches  ,   , ���������n a point almost at the-summit of  chute now  oO       v  the   famous   Paddy's   peak.    Al-  thoough   its   existence   has   been  known of since the early days,  it  has been covered with snow most  of the time since then aud at least  during the time that C.   F.   Cald  well has been in control, has been  imposssblo   to   get   at.    The   extremely   light   snowfall   the   past  winter has made it possible to get  into the ore shoot this Bummer, the  snow and ice having melted sufficiently to allow of the oro being  located  without any   unnecessary  expense.      Judging from appearances tlie vein matter around  the  ore   shoot   has   eroded   for  some  depth, but this has been replaced  by a quantity of loose rock that  has   slid   down   from higher  up.  The ore  body is nearly live feet  wide and no idea can bo obtained  as to how far this width extends.  At the present time two men are  taking out fifty sacks per day and  a third  of the contractors is engaged in the construction of a trail  to the mine camp a thousand  feet  below.���������Kaslo Kootenaian.  of pure galena in a  fec-t long.    This tunnel will be extended  100  feet  now  and by the  first of October a contract will  be  let which will cover tho  winter's  development operations.     A depth  of 1S5 feet has been attained  and  this will increase as tho work advances   in   the   tunnel.       Assays  ��������� average from 180. to 300 ounces in  silver.     Col. N. E. Linsley,. mining  expert,  in  company  with  J.  ���������Goldstein,   "W.   W.  Dreyfoos and  Andy   Jensen,    recently     visited  Treasure   Mountain   mine,   going  via   Tulameen   and   the   Summit  camp trail, and brought with them  somo fine samples.    They are all  enthusiastic over the exposure of  solid galena ore and the dump is  growing visibly with this valuable  product.    They are all anxious to  get this ore to transportation  but  until a wagon road is made it is  impossible    to   reach    Tulameen  where the end  of the railway is  hoped for soon.     If a right-of-way  were cut out and some  grading  done this fall it would   aid   ore  hauling on sleighs this winter and  thus encourage mining.    A,large  amount of supplies will be required  this   winter.     The   energy   with  which the gentlemen named  have  taken hold of Treasure Mountain  proves   that   they   are   not   mere  vapid, vocal miners,  but business  investors, who want quick action  on  their money.    Such  men  deserve to make good.  E. A. Lambert, well known  in  placer mining circles in  the  early  days of Yukon and Atlin, is building a dam on Granite creek  near  the north fork, from which he will  build a flume to carry the creek at  low water.    He expects  to reach  good pay in gold aud platinum at  tho bed of the creek in the canyon  and is extending the flume 850 feet  lor that purpose and will use about  10,000 feet of lumber in construction.    Ho is giving employment to  somo eight men at present.    As  there is no other wagon road up  Granite creek the difficulty of packing in  provisions and lumber  is  very great and   tedious,   in   one  place having to use aerial transportation on a   wiro  rope.    The  suggestion is made to extend   the  wagon road from  Capt. Holmes'  ranch   to   the   North   Fork   coal  mines and thence to Badger creek,  giving access to arablo land and  largo pine,  spruce and fir timber  area along upper  Granito  creek.

Strength would not permit him to mine any longer.  Some  couple of months ago he went out,  but was only able to work for a  few hours and was then  laid  up.  Since then ho has been unwell, and  he had many difficulties in getting  home again.    When asked   what  he would do with his placer ground,  he said that he would sell out now  as soon as any one  with money  came  along.    The   old   man   has  been working placer ground in the  Omineca for the past forty years,  but he will dig there no more.    Iu  speaking of the Omineca country,  Mr.   McKinnon   said   that   there  were hundreds of men  in   there  prospecting, besides the men connected with the several companies  that  are  operating.     Practically  the whole country is staked now,  both for placer ancl for quartz.    In  tho fall wheii'the men start coming  out there will be some reports of  great quartz strikes.     It is well  known that there is a lot of valuable free milling gold and silver-  lead property, and now that transportation ia getting  within   easy  reach all these properties will  bo  worked and put in shape for development.
