After  paying the cost of boxing and packing he realized a little over eight  cents a pound for his crop.  In the Slocan there is an agitation on foot to prevent the granting  of any more hotel licenses in Silver-  ton.

FIRE BUG IN TOWN  During the last two weeks "no  less than five fires have occured, in  most cases in uninhabited premises.  This is evidently not a case of  spontaneous combustion and whoever is responsible for it should be  quickly brought to boot. The fire  department and police are determined to put a stop to this dangerous nuisance and no mercy will be  shown to the culprit should ho be  caught.

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.  Tbe Ledge is $3.00 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 advance.  R.  T.   LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD,    AUGUST   31,    1911.  .

Doctors, dentists, preachers and  lawyers are all right in their place,  but their lack of practical' business  experience makes them poor representatives for the people.  Tiik majority of country merchants do not know how to advertise. On their shelves they carry  goods that the people know nothing about, and in consequence send  east for goods to the big stores that  use plenty of printers ink in telling  about everything that they have  for sale.

Clifford  Sifton argued that the Liberal  Government had gone back upon  its whole policy and today had not  one word to say concerning it. He  charged further that the Govern-1 Canada  Doitixa the shutdown in Phoenix the Pioneer suggests, that the  citizens save expenses by doing  each other's washing.

Life is a longeriug disease that  can only be cured by death. Death  is not a patent medicine, although  it can bo procured in any part of  the country.  Maiuiiagi* has not dimmed the  humor of the editor of the Grand  Forks Gazette. Last week he  heads the birth column in his  paper, ' 'Too Late For The Census.''  ment of Canada had plotted with  the United States Government to  compel the provinces of Ontario  and Quebec to desist from their desire and fixed policy to manufacture their own forest wealth iu  these provinces. He charged yet  further that reciprocity was a direct turning of the back of Canada  upon Britain an a setting of her  face towards the United States.  Mr. Sifton  declared that there  was no middle course and said the  country was   deciding   the   issue  now.    He opposed the contention  that the Canadian farmer would  gain a new market through reciprocity and pointed out that in exchange he was opening up a market  that was exclusive and  that  was  consuming eighty-five per cent,   of  his produce at high prices.    Not  only was he opening his market to  the United States, which  last year  exported $42S,000,000 worth of the  same foodstuffs as Canada produced, in addition to  feeding herself,  but  he   was   throwing   open   his  Tho fundamental importance of  the subject of public health to our  national civilization and industrial  efficiency was concisely  expressed  by the chairman of the Commission  of Conservation  in  his inaugural  address before the First  Annual  Meeting of thc   Commission.    In  this connection Mr. Sifton said in  part:    ''Tho physical  strength' of  the people is   tho resource  from  which all others derive value.    Extreme and scrupiilus regard for tho  lives ancl health of the population  may be taken as the best criterion  of-the  degree of real  civilization  and refinement to which a country  has attained.    It cannot   be   said  that it  has received too much attention,  through   tho   Provinces,  the Dominion, and the municipalities have  health  laws and health  administrations all doing effective  and useful work.    There are, however, many branches of the subject  general in their character,   which  merit   attention.    The   Dominion  spends hundreds of thousands of  dollars iu eradicating the diseases  of  animals,   and the work,  it is  pleasing to know,  is b'-ing done  with     thoroughness.       But     no  similar effort is made by Province  or Dominion to meet the ravages of  diseases   among   human    beings,  such, e. g., as tuberculosis."  That there is great work to be  done in checking the inroads of  tuberculosis is evidenced by the  mortality statistics of the last census. In the census'year there were  9,709 deaths from the disease in  Or,  iu  other words,   12  Thinking Themes  Contentment   is   an   herb  grows close along the ground.  The mind that loves to stand  aloof and look at humanity, after  the manner of philosophers, is not  a little amused to witness the crowd  striving, longing for Happiness,  and yet turning their backs on the  field whore it is, and elbowing' one  another in their eagerness to get  into the field where it is not, and  never was.  No wonder the sago said that  the world contains some millions  of people���������mostly fools. Over and  over again must it be repeated that  the well-springs of joy are to be  found along the main-traveled  road. The fountains in remote  places aro salt.  Your life   is  humdrum.    You  long for the beauty and glamour.  You hate your old  house  witli its  pots and pans, and tho hideous ingrain carpet in tho parlor, and the  haircloth sofa.    Your father and  mother bore you. The bare Church  ancl its homely folk  and  the Ten  .Commandments have   gotten   on  your nervi'S.    You long to flee it  all and get to the City,  and into  the Great World.  .,It would bo worth a good de.il to  you if you ��������� could learn  one little  secret, namely: that tho thing that  makes life common and cheap and  wretched is���������you.    Have you not  seen how, when the poet touches  the   common   .thing, - it    shines?  Would it not be better for you to  work for the poet's spirit than to  long for other surroundings? What  you need is a new spirit.    Without  it kings are bored in their palaces,  the millionaire is tired  amid his  luxury, and all the geniuses,  the  favored, the great and  the titled  grow sick of existence.

"If we enter upon trade relations  of an extensive character with the  United States, and if all favorable  anticipations which can be entertained turned out to be well founded, and our friends south of the  line use us well and give us nearly  everything we ask, what is the inevitable conclusion?

The Canadian  Pacific Eailway is  continuously improving ancl adding to its chain of mountain hotels  but even with the extra facilities  thus   afforded   the accomodations  are taxed to the uttermost.    Every  train westward takes with it a new  contingent of tourists and it has  become the fashionable thing   to  spend  a week or ten days in the  mountains  before going on to the  coast.  Banff as being ��������� in the centre of  Canadian National Park is naturally one of the favorite stop-over  points for travellers.    It is situated  in a di&trict which is most advantageous   for   mountain   climbing,  fishing  and other sports and as a  result the C.P.Ii.   hotel   at   this  point is well patronized.    Recently  the C.P.R. made several new improvements consisted of tho addition of two new wings and a new  swimming pool.    The   wings are  built in form of towers and contain sixty  bed rooms.   They are  five storeys high and liko the rest  of the hotel are of stone and mill  construction.   The ground floor of  the new wing is given  up to  a  spacious sun parlor while there is  a driveway under the other wing.  From now on this sun parlor will  be a feature of the hotel accomodation.   It is fifty feet square and  on three sides of it there is a raised  dais reached by a series of steps,  where the guests may rest while  enjoying the view from the broad  windows.    Beyond the dais there  is a conservatory   where   flowers  bloom in great profusion and the  whole   parlor is .surrounded   by  glass walld giving the sunlight free  access to tho room.

Rest The Horse's Feet  Every farm .horse should, if  possible, be allowed to go without  his shoe's at least two or three  months every year, in the opinion  of The Horseman. In fact, it is  hardly necessary to shoe a horse on  the farm unless he is.to go on the  hard roads or work on the hard  soil where he is required to do  much heavy pulling. Without  shoes a horse's will grow out, regain its natural shape, which is always more or less changed by continuous shoeing.  ���������Many city horses with hoofs  bound and cracked and otherwise  injured, have been taken to a farm,  their shoes pulled off and turned  out to pasture and thoroughly  cured within six months. In fact  the farmers around the large cities  used to find in this class of animal  a cheap supply, many of which  turned out to be first-class horses,  showing that all that was needed  was rest on Mother Earth without  their shoes.

The Lone Star will resume  operations next mouth.  Ore irom Republic is being  smelted in Greenwood.  This week 5,000 tons of coke  arrived at Fort William en route  to Greenwood.  The ore that the Big Copper  ships to thc smelter will run four  per cent copper.  Ola Lofslad expects to strike a  lead of rich ore in the Argo  tunnel next month.  Last Saturday the Emma miue  at Denoro shipped nine carloads  of ore to the Greenwood smelter.  The daily shipments will amount  to about 100 tons.  1   i c, ���������inp w  The Granby Co., has 150 men  working .'it Goose Bay.  In the Slocan a carload of ore  was shipped from tlie Idaho last  week.  The recent Blue Ridge gold excitement near Kaslo has just about  petered out.  Small forces of miners are working on several claims near Trout  Lake city and Ferguson.  Tu the interior of Vancouver  Island some rich oro has been  found upon McBride creek.  ]Sreai* Xow Denver their is a six  inch vein of high grade ore in the  shafts of the Mollie Hughes.  There is a stampede of Northern  prospectors to tbe new placer  grounds on the McMillan river.  This is thc dryest season that  the. hydraulic miners of Cariboo  have ever known. The shortness  of rain will probably cause tho  usual fall run to be adandoned.  Three shifts aro working on the  Bluebird in tho Rossland district.  It is thought that the 200 foot level  will be. reached next month, when  large shipments will be made to  the Trail smelter.  A. D. Wheeler will# probably do  some work this year upon tho  Gallagher in the Ainsworth camp.,  This mine produces diy oro which  only costs $5 a ton for treatment!  at thc Trail smelter, including  freight.  The deepest, well in the U. S. A.  is near West Elizabeth, Pennsylvania. Its bottom is 5,oS5 feet beneath the surface. A more remarkable well, perhaps, reaching  a depth of 3,G00 feet was drilled  for petroleum in Western China by  primitive methods, and by means  of such crude appliances as a cable  made of twisted strands of ratan.  The deepest well in the world is  in Germany and is 0,572 feet deep.  The west coast of Graham Island  will, according to prospects, be the  scene of marked activity during the  next four months. If oil is found  by the pioneer company as expected, without the necessity of a second bore, there is sure to be a rush  to the latest oilfields on the Pacific  Coast. The oil has been looked  upon as of an asphaltum base but  there are indications now that it  will be very high grade. Asphaltum  is found in the rock seams at the  surface, where it has been forced  through tho seams and the oil has  evaporated.  Cutler T. Porter, ono of the syndicate of Spokane men interested in  thc famous Wagner group, on Hall  creek, was in town on Saturday and  Sunday,  en   route   to the   upper  part of the district.    No work to  amount to anything has been done  on the Wagner this year, the owners being somewhat disappointed  at the Hall creek trail not being  constructed further in their direction.   They state that if they had  a trail all the distance that they  would be in a position to ship some  of their higher grades of ore at a  profit.   As one interested in lead  mining in this part of the. country,  Mr. Porter was asked for an opinion regarding tho reciprocity pact.  He replied that insofar as British  Columbia was concerned it was a  bad deal and as far as he could see  neither the United States or Canada would benefit to any great extent he thought.   Had lead and  zinc ores been included the deal  would be undoubtedly beneficial to  tlio TGislo-SIocan and to tho Lar-  dcan.    But Mr.   Porter considered it likely that Champ Clark will  be the next president of the neighboring republic, with the democrats more firmly seated iu the  saddle than ever, resulting - in the  downward revision oi the tarrifl'  and a crash at tho big American  lead and zinc trusts by the removal  of the tarrifl now levied on Canadian lead and zinc ores.���������Kaslo  Kootenai an.

A BIG FISHING SCHEME  Fishing with a seine 5,-100 feet  in length  and 30 feet in  width,  operated by a powerful   windless,  is tho work  in  which employes of  Bartholomew Brothers of St. Louis  will    engage the middle   of   this  month,   in  an effort to clear the  lakes in Spokane county of carp.  The fish will bo sent to St.  Louis,  Kansas  City,   Chicago  and  other  eastern points in  refrigerator cars.  It is estimated that the total shipments, will amount to more than  50 cars.   Trout,   Bass and  other  game fish caught in the draws will  be put  back  into the water,   according to an agreement  with  the  firm and J. A. Uhlig, (ish and game  warden of the county.    Tho seine  fisherman will be accompanied  by  a slate officer,   who will  see that  the game fish aro protected.    War-,  den Uhlig says that carp weighing  up to 30 pounds have been caught  on vegetable and  fish bait in the  vicinity of Spokane this summer.  It is estimated that the carp have  destroyed billions of trout eggs dur-  the last few years.���������Colville Examiner.  ECONOMICAL MINING  At the Wasp No 2, in the Black  Hills, ore is being mined and cyan-  ided for less than 81 a ton,    This  is an accomplishment probably not  duplicated elsewhere in the world.  Conditions are ideal,and that happy  medium between cheap treatment  and low extraction, as against expensive treatment and high extraction, has been struck.    The ore is  mined in  a big open-cut from a  body averaging 20 feet thick and  covered  by a foot of soil.    Black  powder is used to shatter and dislodge the ore, boulders being block-  holed.    Air hammer drills aro used  in this  block-holing.    The ore is  hauled in four-ton  skips   to   the  mill  where dry crushing  to one-  sixth inch mesh and a three-day  leaching gives a recovery of 70 per  cent of the values.  NEW C.P.R. SHOPS  The contest among Western  cities as to which will secure the  proposed new shops of the Canadian Pacific Railways still goes  merrily on. Thc C.P.R. is being  beseiged with letters and telegrams from parties interested  and there is much rivalry among  various centres as to which will  land the coveted shops. No  sooner does one municipality come  up with a big offer than its nearest competiton goes it oue better  and so the bidding is quite brisk.  Yesterday local, officials were  approached to see if they could  give any information that would  allay thc suspense but they had  nothing to make public other  than that 'the matter was under  consideration and that a decision  would soon be rendered.  From this distance it looks as  though the matter rested between  Calgary and Medicine Hal.    Thc  cities of Port  Arthur aud Fort  William made a joint bid for the  shops,   but Sir  William Whyte,  the Vice-President o( the C.P.R.  states that'it would be impossible  to make advantageous use of  a  location  cast  of Alberta,   as. by  the lime thc shops are 'built the  comp'any will have ready for them  about S00 locomotives in its territory between the mountains and  ���������he western Manitoba boundary.  Sir William did not turn the Lake  Superior cities down without  a  ray oi hope however, as he stated  that he considered thc company's  terminal point at the head of the  lakes an ideal spot for car building shops, and intimated that the  company might soon  be open to  discuss the idea of locating   car  works there.  With Port Arthur and Fort  William out of running either  Calgary or Medicine Hat will  probably get thc shops, Bassano  had hopes thai their bait of  cheap water-power might prove  effective, but. the C.P.R, will  probably want to locate in one  of the larger centres.

The stage road is now a credit  to the province and a boon to tho  two towns. The highway has been  leveled, graded and considerably  widened, the risk of accident being reduced to a minimum. Not  only has he trimmed tho road,-but  another thoroughfare haa been constructed, branching from tho main  road below Docksteader's ranch by  a short switchback and running almost southwest for nearly two-  miles. This new road, which is to  continued to Greenwood, will benefit a number of ranchers, and on-  able the stores of wood in thnt district to be easily tapped. Altogether the work reflects great credit especially when the small number of men employed is taken into  account. A word of praise is also  due the representative for this district, Ernest Miller, for his aid in  securing the money grant.��������� Phoo-  Pioneer.  NELSON, B. C.

MATHIEU  CO., Prop..,  Sherbrook,  f'liulu by hwsui. Montreal  CHARLES M. HAYS      ^    -  - President of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.  One of the railroad men of the times who has mastered all the intricacies of  railway work in his thirty-two years of continuous service, is Charles Melville Hays,  president of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and second vice-president and general manager of the Grand Trunk Railway. Born in 1856 at Rock Island, 111., i.t  the age of seventeen he began to learn the a-b-c of railroading, as clerk- in the passenger department of the Atlantic and Pacific road at St. Louis. Then, after a'  year of this schooling had proved his fitness, lie was promoted to the auditor's  department and later to the general superintendent's office. From 1878-86 he was  secretary to tho general manager of two big roads, then general manager, later  attaining the dignity of general manager of the Wabash system and in 1894 was  elected vice-president.  In the two latter positions Mr. Hays represented his company as director  on the boards of the various companies in which his road was interested. -In Jan. .  uary, 1896, through the efforts of Sir Charles Rivers Wilson, he was made, general  manager of the Grand Trunk at $25,000 a year with a five'years' contract. Tho  road was in a debilitated state of health; it needed heroic treatment���������strong tonics  quickly and properly administered, and deft surgery work in the way of cutting  expenses and amputating useless members of the staff.  Mr. Hays made it clear that, as he was to be responsible for results, he must  be free to select his own means to produce them. " He was not to be a puppet nor-  a figure-head. He must have the support of the Board of Directors in carrying  out what he decided the road needed. As the Grand Trunk had to meet Americun  competition, it must win its way by recognizing and applying American methods.  The English scheme of operating did not nt the situation; the road needed a brisk,  vigorous, clean-cut business system, with the moss of tradition all removed. Mr. ���������  Hays prescribed this and he saw that the medicine was administered.  Old bridges that should long before have been put on the retired list were taken  down, and modern steel bridges substituted; the road was double-tracked; primitive back-number rules and regulations were quietly eclipsed by introducing the  Standard Rules in force in the States; thc road-beds were brought up to concert  Eitch; the rolling stock made the latest and best; slow trains were displaced by  ist-flyers; the road was transformed from a snail way to a railway; and trained men  took thc places of the old men whose one merit was influence at the home office.  In 1901 Mr. Hays retired to.accept the presidency of the Southern Pacific;  but the position proving distasteful, he was again secured for the Grand Trunk and  is now busy with this road and his new project���������the Grand Trunk Pacific R.R. ��������� ��������� t  Kitte-esl accordlii* to Act of ihs Parliament of Caisada, in tba jraar 190G, by W. 0.
