About two o'clock on Tuesday  morning Leo Dignault's store  near Anaconda, was burned down.  Three attempts were made to  turn in the alarm, but the bell  would not respond.

Recently a wag sent the following  letter; to the editor of a country  paper: "Sir���������Is there no way to  put a stop to .begging along the  line of the railway? For instance,  yesterday an aged mendicant with  a wooden leg kept pace with tho  afternoon express all the way from  Blankton to Spaceley and annoyed  the passengers exceedingly, going  from one open window to another  with his importune solicitations."

Even a live town has a  few dead ones.  In Ontario hotel bars must be  kept closed upon Christinas. In  that province the people are fairly  well trained iu the art of drinking  out of a bottle.  In Vancouver Donald Cameron  was given two years in jail, for  striking a policeman with a club.  He should have hit the cop with a  Bologna sausage.  There is a meat price war in  Rossland, and the Merritt Herald  remarks, that there will be cheap  meat in that city, or Pat Burns  will have to quit scabbing.  The Big; Tunnel that Duncan  Ross is building for the G.T.P.,  near Hazelton is through gumbo  or clay. It will take 1,300,000  feet of lumber to timber it properly.  Harry Walker's new print shop  in Enderby is one of the neatest  and most artistic buildings in the  province.   It   is well ventilated,  but' does  holes. .  * **, ^ -   ��������� 'j        ,���������  '   The business men., of, Hazelton<>.  have threatened to'take their ads \'  out of the Herald, if that excellent"  paper   refused   to   make & noise ,  about, the' blind pigs that- are so  numerous   in   that .section." - The,'  Herald  editor says that he "is too  busy to do.the work of the police.

' During   the *  past year 7,000 arrests were  made ,  by  the^ police in that city.    The  force numbers 197 men,  and this ���������  will -be increased in 1912 to 297.

Wheat "anu" oats fare $1.50 a  hundred' ? pounds] ^at Brown's  Ferry, Wash.   ���������* -*  A BIG TUNNEL^  .The longest tunnel on the'en-  tire Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,  from  Moncton to Prince Rupert,  is now being dug within   a few  miles of New Hazelton,   on   tha  bank^ of^  the.,Bnlkley river, just  opposite the Four Mile Mountain1  where the Erie Mines camp can be  plainly seen,  along with   several,  other prospectors holes and claims,-  while some two hundred feet be-'  low the roaring Bulkley river races  on to the canyon  at Haguelgate  where it is churnedjup for the last  time before it rushes on to .mingle  with the waters of the Skeena at  old Hazelton.  This   tunnel,  locally known as  Ross'   Long Tunnel, is 2,048  feet  in length and when completed will-  be nothing more or less than a hole  through the bank of the Bulkley  river.    Duncan Ross,  one of the  best known men in British Columbia, and a railway contractor who  has made good, is the contractor  on this work which consists of six  miles of right-of-way, and includes  not only the big tunnel, but also  two smaller tunnels which are already  completed,  and   many   big  cuts and deep fills.    It is the hardest piece of work on the road from  Winnipeg to Hazelton for the same  mileage, and  will ccst tho Grand  Trunk   Pacific   Railway   in   the  neighborhood of three quarters of  a million dollars, or over 660,000  per mile.    To carry on this work  requires a small army of men aud  Mr. Ross has been very particular  and  very successful   in   selecting  his men.    He has on his pay roll  many of the best railroad men on  the entire system and as a result  the work is making splendid progress.  Altogether Duncan Ross has  over 200 men working on his contract. They are all well paid and  the wage bill every mouth is iu excess of S20,000. Up to the present  two camps have been run, but as  the west end of the contract is now  completed camp one has been closed and and the men moved up to  the Big Tunnel camp.-���������Omineca  Herald.

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  creatipn 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.

A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  Be good and you will not need a  Collins in the morning.  It is already rumored, that thero  will be a provinciai election in the  spring.  If the world was not bo full of  fools wise men would have less  money.  As a rule the other chap thinks  you nre wrong, because you do not  agree with him.  It was a witty boy in London,  who first remarked that unclean  spirits were dirty devils.  In B. C. there is one law for the  country booze dealer, and another  for his brother in the city.  The small-pox has broken out  at the Nelson jail, and the police  are in no hurry to catch it.  my will is greater than gravitation  or electricity or gunpowder, for it  can use them, and they cannot  budge it; my imagination is more  wonderous than the Vatican gallery, for its pictures come and go  with instant swiftness, and my  conscience is as mysterious and as  majestic as the substance of God  himself.  Let a man reverence himself.  Then he is not far from believing  in God.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  Rann's Remarks.  "The farmer can express his  opinion of the new Methodist  preacher in a firm and loud voice,  on the four corners, and if the  printer ventures to express the  view that the preacher ought to be  chasing a currycomb over a milk  cow instead of filling a large room  with thin ozone and misinformation, he will lose subscribers so fast  that he won't have the circulation  of a cold-storage egg.    The farmer  wheezes like an accordion with the  asthma.    There   are    others,   including a fair sprinkling of jack-  leg lawyers and ham strung school  teachers,   who have imbibed   the  notion that the editor's life is softer  than  the head of a two-ply sport.  These rush in  with a 890 outfit  and a wind pressure that would  blister  the lining out of   a steel  range and fill a long felt want with  the grace and abandon of a hare-  lipped hired girl at a beauty show.  Nothing ever drives these startlings  out of the profession except sudden  death or the sheriff.    Then there  are   those    misguided    ambitious  politicans  who   believe   that   the  easiest way to clasp a fat office to  your bosam is to become the editor  of a newspaper. These usually fade  away liko a goat on a string bean  diet, carrying through life a look  of hopeless sorrow   and   romorse  that would wring the tears from a  porcelain egg.  <lIf the newspaper man   know  tho joys and  independence of the  farmer's life, ho would kick himself up to a peak  until  he looked  like a rat-tailed file for continuing  to make himself the door mat of  the stiff-necked aud ungodly community.    Gentle communion  with  the kine is far better than animated  converse with an irate subscriber  with fists like a premium ham and  the disposition of a hyena.    Let  us reform, brethern, and get close  to nature's   heart  with a   three-  tined pitchfork and a self-feeding  manure spreader.    We live longer  or at any rate it will seem   longer,  as the married man said, and if the  worst comes to worst,   we can live  on rutabagas and rock salt,   which  we have no doubt, is an  improvement   over   our   customary diet.  Then 'Back to the Soil' will be the  pass-word and 'Soli Boss' the grand  hailing sign of distress."  Times are becoming more prosperous   in    Greenwood.

TnE year is but^four days old,  and already many a good resolution has become paving material  for the road that leads to the permanent home of the devil.  It was Pope who said that the  three chief qualifications of a Party  writer are, 'to stick at nothing, to  delight in flinging dirt, and to  slander in the dark by guess.  Thinking Themes  Whatever a man's creed, there's  a good deal of him that does not  believe it.  Whatevera man's crime,  there was somo of him that protested.  Whatever a man's goodness, it  is flecked on the underside with  ugly spots.    Let us deal reverently  with one another, and  with awe;  we are all so complex.    It should  not bo bo hard to believe in God,  for   man himself is scarcely less  wonderful.  The universe is just as great and  amazing inside of me as outside.  Immanuel Kant marveled when  he looked into his own heart, as  when ho looked up at the sky. So  the stars over me are no less sublime than my soul which mirrors  them; thunder and lightning among  tho clouds are matched by  storms of passion within me as  terrible as they; my memory is a  space with a clogged  think-tank  and a stickful of brain*food.  "If the editor takes two successive days off in fishing, his patrons  call him a loafer and take their  job work to the other office.    If he  works until he is bowed over like a  fat man with cramps people say he  is too stingy  to hire extra help.  If he contributes $2.00 to the W.  C. T. Ui and wears a boiled shirt  on Sunday, the banks call in his  notes with a noise like a wooden-  legged man falling on" a tin roof,  and if he refuses to dig up for the  Woman's Relief Corps supper he  is branded as a miser and avoided  as if he had the hives.   Thefarmer  can look every man in the face and  tell him  to go  where there is no  premium on coal slack, and if the  printer informs a man who trios to  beat him out of four year's subscription that he is so crooked that  he couldn't go to sleep in a roundhouse he is liable to be reduced to  the consistency of cornstarch pudding.  "In view of these facts,  why is  the profession overcrowded? There  are several reasons.   One is that  man is a vain bird and is never  happier than when he is yapping  in linotype slugs.   Many a man  would   rather   dispense  fourt.en  columns of crooked rhetoric and  reformed spelling once a week and  live on ossified liver and iced tea,  than shave the warts off a calf's  head and hold a pail for a sucking  calf, even though he can fill up on  greater   thing   than   the   British  MiiBPiim fn- ,-f to ��������� u : ' ������ " " uiJ uu "olu& WW ana maKe ns cheerful  Museum, for it is a living museum; I green corn and side pork until he Lid h.ppy> the day is lost.   Else  Dear Aunt Margaret,���������I once  more pay my dutiful respects which  I think you deserve far mor than I  can ex-press, and anything you  send me for a Christmas box,  auntie, I shall tressure like I always have done. You'd be. surprised the boots I wear out, aunt.  I do think boots make a lovely  ChrisBmas present, speshally for a  young person.  Speaking of higher things, aunt,  don't it seem wonderful the way  some people -ere gifted? Take  mother, for instance. I bleeve my  mother could sit ou the blade of a  knife and not feel no ill effects. I  dessay the knife would b3 done for  if it had to bear mother's wait, but  my meaning is, auntie, some's gifted one way and some another, and  mother seems to have nacheral  cushions all over her. Such a comfort it must have been in her early  married life when father's temper  was uncertain and the softest piece  of furnicher they had was an egg-  box.  We don't none of us seem able  to choose what shall be in our parcel, do we, aunt, so we ought to be  very grateful when we get handed  something extra. Nu-cher being  such a puzzle, you reely can't  wonder at pleecemen and members  of Parliament staying out at nights  so's they can get to know about  different miss-teries.  And speaking of the many kinds  of haman persons at large, mustn't  there be a lot of fuuy patterns at  the facktory?   Here's mother with  her annatomy wrapped up in  lard  enough    to   start   a  soap-works,  don't leave her enough neck to get  a collar on, while you seem to have  neck enough for anything, auntie,  but not enough fat in your system  to grease a pair of nut-crackers.  Thinking over  these things   and  reading  the  mission maggazeens  ought to brighten life for ua poor  lost creechers, and keep ns from  being flyty and make as cheerful  we're most miserable worms,  aren't we, auntie: that's what you  said you were to the mission man  if you remember, when you put  thrippunse on the clothing card.  He must have thought the same,  for when he took your order he  wrote*in his book Unbleeched for  one female worm, thrippunse. He  seemed a bit -worried on account of  so much money rolling in, and  said he was afraid the vicar might  want a stronger man to carry it  about.    So that's how I know.  Through following your advice,  aunt, I feel better every way.  Nothing don' seem to upset me  now, auntie, I won't let it, and  whenso-ever any of the girls get  saucy or anything like that, I just  exert my will power like you said  I was to, and then I give them a  gentle re-buke with anything that's  handy. At the finish they're  lucky if the ear-ache's all they get  away with.  Another thing, aunt, I don't  seem as if I can show auy rudeness now, not to anyone. Instead  of that I try to scatter sweetness  over everybody that comes near  me, that is of course if they come  near enough.  You  know how fond I've been  of history, don't you, aunt?   Well,  we were having an argument here  the other day as to whethor it ��������� was  Maria Martin or Joan of Hark that  stole the tiles off the Red Barn.  To settle the point, first we got the  dickshionary and  then we got to  some words that  weren't   in the  book,   and then one of the girls  called me a good for nothing dispu-  tator.    I've   known   the   time   I  should    have   walked   over   and  slapped  her on  the   neck, but I  thought   you   wouldn't   approve,  auntie, so I told  the person  best  thing sho could do  would be to  hang a bell over her ear else screw  a   knocker   to   her   temple.    She  shreeked Whatever for?   So I said  well, dear, what you reely want is  something to.wake your brain up,  'cause your mind gone to sleep.  She didn't seem nice  to me after  that, but I looked on tho bright  side and told her if she didn't pull  herself together  she'd  very likely  get the sack, and then she seemed  to im-prove.   So you  see,   aunt,  how   the   lady-like   culcher   and  things you taught me are pan-ning  out.    Fact is I'm a wonder to myself.    I am Btraight.  There don't seem any more I can  say now, aunt, but if there should  be I'll let you know. Done nothing deffnit as to my male ad-mirer,  Feeling my way first.

H. R.

The Railways have granted special rates.  On the evening of February 7th  a banquet in which the members of  the Canadian Lumberman Association will participate with the Forestry Association,   has  been  arranged.

And joy in  doiug things is a necessity of real  growth" or advancement.

THE SN0WSLIDE BELT.  It in nineteen years ago today  since Flaherty and his ��������� partner  were killed by a snowslldo at the  Freddie Lee mine.in the Slocan.  Since then one or more have been  killed by slides in the Slocan every  year. The following from the  Slocan Record tells of tbe latest  fatality:  Saturday last Thomas Thomas  was killed in the Noble Five Slide.  He and   two other men,   named  Blair and  Ross were going along  the Noble Five trail, not dreaming  of the slide coming down so early  in thc season, when it struck them.  Blair escaped  with  a few bruises,  Ross was carried down about  half  a mile and managed to dig himself  out.    Thomas was carried   down  300 yards, his head striking against  a tree.    The slide was a small one  and was within  about six feet of  the men before they saw it.  Deceased was a native of Wales,  and came to the Slocan from the  Crow at the time of the coal strike,  and had intended going back there  this week.  Five others were caught in a  slide near the Noble Five the same  clay, but they dropped face downward on the ground and the slide,  a small one,* rolled over them without injury to any.  The  wood Intermediates met in the  skatiDg rink on Wednesday Dec.  27th. As this was the first time  the teams had met considerable  speculation was evinced as [to the  chances of the two teams. The  visiting team were much larger and  heavier than their opponents, and  looked like winners, but no sooner  had the game commenced than it  was noticed that the home boys  were better trained and played a  more combined game, whereaB the  visitors appeared to be very clever  individually, their play was rendered ineffectual by want of combination and the homo boys won  easily by 4 to 3. ���������  Marvellous results from taUiiur liis remedy  for the liquor habit.

LIFE NOT WORTH LIVING  BOUNDARY LEAGUE  Grand Forks paid a visit to the  copper metropolis on  Monday in  search of points in the Boundary  League and found the home players in great form and  suffered  defeat by 3  to 1.    Right   from  the  time that referee Warren lined the  teams up to the end of the game,  the home team had  most of the  play.    Both players and spectators  appeared  to  be very excited and  high strung and,Mr. Warren  had  to   send  several players on  both  sides to the fence for infringement  of rules, etc., caused by two vigorous play.  The lineup was as follows:  Is the way Miss Alta Abel of West  Baden, Ind., summed up her existence  after having sought in vain for health.  She writes: "I was a complete wreck  ���������always tired, worn out and nervous.  I had to spend about one-third of my  time in bed;  "Vinol, your deiicious cod liver and  Iron tonic, was recommended, and I  can truly say It has done me more  good than all the medicine I ever took  In my life, That nervous and tired  feeling Is all gone. I have gained in  health, flesh and strength, until I feel  like another, person." (We- guarantee  this testimonial to be genuine.)  What Vinol did for Miss Abel, we  know It will do for every nervous,  run-down, overworked, tired, thin and  discouraged woman in this vicinity.  Try a bottle of Vinol'with the understanding that your money will be-  returned If It does not help you.  John L.

Excellent work is being done in  this school, and pareuts 'and  friends, by their presenee at the  closing exercises, showed their  appreciation of the manner in  which the school has been .conducted for the past three years by  their very popular teacher, Miss  Kathleen Ferguson.  Promptly at eight o'clock in the  evening, Mr. John East, who ably  performed the duties of chairman,  called the meeting to order,  and  addressed   those  present  in   the  felicitous and interesting manner  which   is   characteristic   of  Mr.  East.   The  Christmas   Tree was  the pivot on which  the eyes of all,  especially the   children's   turned.  This  literally groaned   and  bent  beneath its load of good things,  and with other festive decorations  added a temporary charm to the  schoolroom.    Miss Ferguson efficiently presided at the organ, while  two of the gentlemen present made  sweet accord with violin and harpsichord.- To this were added recitations,   dialogues    and    motion  songs by the" pupils.    Those were  exellently   rendered,    and    gave  evidence of painstaking care in the  preparation on  the part of  their  instructor, Miss Ferguson.   Next  came tbe distribution of presents  to the pupils.   This  was a most  enjoyable part of the program.  To  see the little bright eyes open wide  as they expressed surprise and tendered their thanks with a winsome  smile, as each was handed a present, added zest to the distribution.

In the nineteenth century, Elizabeth Fry, famous as "the prisoners' friend," made,existence easier;for the; prisoners of England while they.~  were paying the;prlce of their crimes. In the twentieth century, Mrs, Booth  gives to the prisoners of America a new chance) to battle honestly with the  world, when the prison gates open outward to let them again Into the Bunllghit  Mrs. Booth, the daughter of an Episcopalian clergyman, was born at  Lympseflcld, England. When she was three years old her father, Rev.- Samuel  Charlesworth, moved to a large parish; in,the East End of London, where,  amid mlsory and poverty, he found a noble field of usefulness. The first barracks , the Salvation Army ever had was opposite the rectory, and ' Mrs. .  Charlesworth, a broad-minded, large-hearted woman, often took her children J  across the street to the mission services.'- ;   ��������� '���������'���������'������������������:-'-"-i'..-���������-''���������'���������'.; .i'V;'���������"��������� ���������' ">  Maud, a beautiful young girl of fifteen, upon whose mind spiritual truths  had made little real Impression, suddenly had her heart touched by the sor-*  vices one night, and the great privilege of living the highest life and helping)  ethers to live it came to her .with the luminance of a revelation. Two years  later she became a soldler'in tho Army and did splendid work with General! '  Dooth's oldest-daughter In France and Switzerland, and among their many  adventures they were expelled from the canton,of Geneva. :.  When she was twenty-one, on'her marriage to Balllngton Booth, thoy  were sent to the United States, where they carried on a most successful campaign on aggressive lines for the Salvation Array. In 189G, owing to a difference of opinion with General Booth as to the* policy of the Internal management of the work directed at long distance from London, Mrs. Booth,and  l:or husband resigned from the Army and organized the "Volunteers of Airier* ,  leu," of which tho "Volunteer Prisoners' League" is but a part.  T:.l3 latter phase of, the crusade ofholpfulnesa, with all its flnanc&T"  b'jrt'cn,.Ks round of visits, its orginls-ntion and plans, has fallen on'tho  shoulders of Mrn. Booth. Of the 86,6,00 prisonors In the State Institutions  of the country, 14,000 are enrolled as'members, and when the prisoners leave  tlii'ir ''ohfbomcrt thpy nre taken to "IIopo Halls," whore thoy can got their  L-v-iinrrs naow on life, liavoJnfluenco to secure honest labor, and a holplng  '   -d and Inspiring environment while struggling toward bettor things.  * ,.irul rmrJInito^ctoftlnlMrlldinirrjlorCiTmilB lo UiayrsrlCOl, by W. 0.
