It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.  The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not-so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  the county of Bruce. To the United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.

Presently the King said tojhim, relenting: "Now you can say what  you were going to say."  The little Prince, with a world  of meaning, said: "Too* late,  Grandpa: it is too late."  The King said: "Nonsense! If  it was worth saying five minutes  ago it is worth saying now."  "No, Grandpapa," said the  little Prince.

Considerable discussion has arisen  in scientific circles over the experiments of MM. Legehdre and  Pieron In Paris, who havo discovered  that the real 'reason why we go' ,to  sleep is because our brain has boen  actually poisoned. Sleep, they declare, Is produced through a morbid  change In the cello of the frontal lobe  of the brain. They discovered a dog  that died of Insomnia, and Injected  some of the serum of its brain into  another dog, thereby causing it to fall  Into a deep sleep from which It subsequently awakened In a perfectly  healthy condition. From this and  similar experiments they assert that  sleep Is due to a natural poison. The  poison of sleep, they contend, is,' In.  fact, an antidote for the,-poisons that  are the by-products of every mental  and physical action of our lives, and  we awake from sleep when It .has  cleanso dour higher nervous centres  of the poisons that our daily toil has  produced.  EXPERIENCE   WITH   SMUGGLERS  Officer Captured 100,000 Cigars  In his experiences In getting after'  the tobacco smugglers Donohue, a recently deceased member of the customs service at New York, had a num-'  ber of narrow escapes from death.  One, which was particulalry dangerous and was an excellent example of  the man's fearlessness, occurred in  1882. There was one ship plying between Cuba and New York which.  Donohue suspected. One day it arrived on a regular trip and the detective boarded her. The customs man  knew every place on a ship where  contraband stuff could be hidden, but  after a thorough sea-rch, he found  nothing.  But Donohue was sure that there  were 100,000 cigars on that vessel and  he was determined to locate them.  Finally he noticed that although the  firemen were free to go -ashore, many  of them were still on the ship, apparently enjoying his discomfiture.  Then Donohue had an idea. He procured a lantern and a hammer and  made his way to the boiler-room,  tapping each boiler with the hammer.  One sounded differently from the rest  and he ordered the circular cover,  about tiie size of an ordinary can-  hole, removed.-  There .was a moment's hesitation,  but the order was fulfilled and Donohue went down in the big iron cavern.  There heaped at one side he found the  100,000 cigars. But while he was below some one olapped down the iron  cover and the inspector was trapped.,  He yelled and pounded, but all in'  vain. Then hie lantern went out  The detective remained there for,  several hours until a watchman, hearing the hammering, released him.  4  ^<2������*m>N_ .

Recent consular reports describe i a  new form of life preserver, which it  is proposed to introduce into the German Navy. It consists of two swimming cushions bound together by  straps and arranged to lie upon the  breast and back. The novel feature  of the apparatus 'Is an electric lamp,  whioh le worn on tho forehead. The  lamp burns three or four hours, and  Is pro-aided with a reflector, which  throws its light for a distance of  several hundred yards at night. The  life preserver can be buckled on in  five seconds.  Woman Again  "I tell you you can't beat my wife  for presenoe of mind," said the man  at the club, proudly. "Listen to tMs.  One day last week an old gossip of  our neighbourhood called, and I left  her and wlfie alone In the parlour.  "An hour later, having the impression that' our caller had departed, I  bounced into the room with, 'So the  old cat has gone, eh?' Well, as I  lifted my eyes, there'was the woman  herself in front of me. But my wife  ��������� bless her ��������� was there with the  goods.

French Influence.  Of the Influence of French inestitu-  Ittans on those of Scotland evidence  Is also not lacking... Scotland took,  'for instance, her legal system from  France,.not from England., Her Parliament was modelled on the French  States General, in which the various  orders assembled together, rather  than on the assembly of Lords and  Commons which formed two Houses  instead of one. The Court of Session,  founded in 1585, was fashioned after  the Parliament of Paris, and the pre^  Reformation Scottish universities  after that of. Paris, the greatest of  mediaeval scholastic Institutions. Not  less remarkable is the Frenoh influence on her ecclesiastical -institutions. From French Protestantism  she borrowed her- Presbyterian system of church government, and even  in its smaller details the French impress Is unmistakable. The Moderator  of Scotland's ecclesiastical courts ���������  Presbytery, Synod, Assembly ��������� is an  Importation from France, where it'  was the designation of the President  of an ecclesiastical court; whilst another term, applied to a motion In  these courts, an "overture," Is derived  from the practice of the Parliament  of Paris. At an earlier time ecclesiastical as well as baronial architecture affords additional exemplification of tlhe tendency to borrow or  'adapt from Scotland's old ally.  MISSIONS ASTD TURKEY  King b Always, nfaeu outside London,  Accompanied by Member of  the Cabinet.  Progress of this Part of Europe Due  to Missionary Enterprise.  The first electric telegraph instrument in Turkey, was set up by missionaries. They introduced the first  'eewtog-machine, the first printing-  press, and the first modern agricultural implements. They brought the  tomato and the potato and the other  vegetables and fruits that are now  staples; they built the first hospitals;  they- started the first dispensary and  the first modern schools. The mighty  uplifting force of education came -with  t*he mission schools, and is having the  tromendoua force it has everywhere,  In overthrowing old errors and outworn forms of despotism and misrule.  The- most far-reaching work of tho  'mteeionaries is educational, which  comprehends all races, all religions,  and all languages.

Their influence  is thus extended to every community,  because no student leaves an institution without carrying with him the  Igarms of progress which*must affect  the family and the neighborhood.

When tho King goe3 abroad, or  stays for any length of ,timo outside  tho capital, ho is accompanied by a  Minister In attendance. Tho position  Is supposed to be filled by each mom-  ber of the Cabinet in turn, the period  of duty varying from a week to a  fortnight, or evon a month. In actual  practice only'two or three Ministers  are called upon to be In attendance  upon the King, and the duration of  their visits depends In great'measure  upon their personal popularity.  The late King Edward frequently  dispensed with t ho service of a  Minister when he went abroad, and  the old custom of having a member  of the Cabinet at Windsor when the  Court went thero does not now pro-  vall. In these advanced days of telegraphs and telephones, motor-cars,  and other methods of ��������� rapid Intercommunication it is not considered  necessary "that a responsible Minister  of the Crown should leave his official  duties for so lengthy a period.  Compulsory Dinner.  The duties' of a Minister in attendance are not arduous, except at  ���������times when the political horizon is  clouded, or when this country Is engaged ' In war. Wnen' things- are  normal ��������� that Is to say, dull ��������� the  Minister has little to do but enjoy  himself, and nowadays every facility  Is given for his doing so, after his  own particular fashion. Breakfast Is  served In his private sitting-room, If  he so desires It, or he joins the gontlc-  men of the Court.  Luncheon, too, Is a meal at which  the attendance of the Minister Is optional. When the King is out shooting or.fishing ��������� ana scarcely a day  passes but sees him engaged in one  or other'of these sports ��������� luncheon  is taken, of course, In the open; and  if the Minister (happens to be a  sportsman, he Is naturally invited to  join the Royal party.  The Minister's presence at dinner  Is, however, insisted upon, and he is  required to be present In the drawing-  room afterwards. .Queen Victoria  used to go through official documents  with her Ministers twice a day ��������� In  the morning and after dinner. King  Edward, who was' exceedingly methodical, devoted the first part of the  morning to official business, and unless despatches received during the  day were specially urgent they weTe  not submitted and.discussed until the  following morning.  King George is equally methodical.  His Majesty is an early riser and Is  often at work at half-past. nine.

The principals are now here and  all is activity getting ready for  carrying on the work on a scale  more worthy the property.  On Thursday last Mr. C. H.  Brookes arrived and no time was  lost in showing that things were  going to move in earnest, for two  days later an engineer. George  Gardiner, came up from Oroville  to begin laying out the ground for  an aerial tramway which will run  direct   from  the   Kingston group  cently  Although the company's charter  covers a large scope, the immediate  object is to acquire leases numbers  1062 and HI4, at the junction' of  Antler and  Russian   creeks,  and  equip them with a large modern  hydraulicing plant.      Tho ground  covered by these leases is a bench  of Antler Creek, comprising an immense gravel bank, formed by this  creek when  running on a higher  level,   and    carrying   high   gold  values.     A    small    hydraulicing  plant was installed on the property  a few years ago by  the original  owners,  for the purpose of testing  the values of the ground,  which  were such as to justify the placing  of a larger plant and  working  the  .^mm\\\\\\\\m^  No anxiety on   ,  aking-day if you use |  CREAM  per cubic yard, and drilling proved  an average value per yard of $1.05.  About one-fifth of tbe values are  in  the platinum.    The   platinum  deposits are eo situated  as to be  dredged at a working cost not exceeding  7 cents  per yard.    Since  the discovery of platinum  in the  Similkameen district considerable  local capital has been sent into the  section to be used for development  purposes, but while the   amount  does not reach a very large figure,  nevertheless it is sufficient to commence operations on a big enough  scale to disclose   to   the   mining  world   the   extensiveness   of   the  platinum deposits.    The company  which holds the lease on the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers will  install a $150,000   bucket   dredge  on their property as early in the  spring as it can be conveniently  worked.  The entire valley of the Similkameen is covered with a deep glacial  wash and   many   of the benches  which have never been worked on  account of lack of water,  can  be,  by the installing of modern machinery which can now be brought in  by rail, made to pay big profits.
