He was crossing  the river iu front of his hotel  standing on a boat, and pulling  himself along by the cable when  the swift current carried the  boat from underneath him, and  left Sam hung up by his hands  on the wire. He reached the  shore completely exhausted and  has; not yet entirely recoyered  from the,shock to his system.  ROCK CREEK  CELEBRATES  j Western Float  The Dominion Day celebration  at Rock Creek was one of the  most successful eyents of its kind  ever held in  the Boundary.     In'  spite of the heavy rains the preceding day,-  the  glorious   First  dawned clear, and the race track  and ball grounds    being   grass  covered on a gravel soil,   there  was no mud.     Every livery  and  private rig and delivery  wagon  in Greenwood was put  into service,   and   the   automobiles   did  double   duty, ' making    several  trips each.   Chesaw sent a crowd  equal to the Greenwood   representation, and there were many  from Oroville.     A conservative  estimate places the crowd at 500,  and slightly  over   100   conveyances of all   descriptions   were  counted    on     the     celebration  grounds.    The sports were held  on the east _side of the   river,  midway between-'Riverside   and  Rock Creek.    The race track was  a half mile straight-a-way,   and  the ball ground was placed just  below   a   steep   hillside,   which  provided a   vantage   point   for  many to view the game.'   Music  was furnished  by  the   Oroville  Concert  Baud,   and   the   bright  red uniforms of the band boys  helped  add  color to the   scene.  Much color was also added by  Zack   Watson,    of    Greenwood.  Zack was there in gorgeous array  of white, with red aud blue trimmings.     Lunch was served  on  the ground, and the hotels also  did a rushing   business.     Many  brought picnic   lunches   which  were eaten along the shady river  banks.  The celebration committee are  to be commended-for the smoothness with which the sports were  pulled off.   Nearly all the events  were started right on schedule  time.    First   on   the   program  came the small sports, but most  of these were   postponed   until  evening,   Following is a list of  events and winners:  Eg-g: Race���������  1st.   Mrs. Phelan  2nd.

The Chesaw boys   came   right  back in their half of the inning,  and evened up the score with "two  tallies,   In the sixth the Chesaw  bunch began hitting Blair hard,  and chalked up three runs, which  lead Phoenix couldn't overcome,  although they started  things in  the seventh, and got one run before the Farmers tightened up  their infield enough to stop them.  A good, snappy game throughout.

THE PEGLEG MINE  Tin-: coal strike in  the Crow's  Nest   Pass    put    the    Boundai'y  . smelters   in   a   difficult   position.  The B. C. Copper Co. lead the way  by bringing coke at great expense  from the east, and eventually the  "other smelters followed suit, thus  averting a great depression in this  part of tbe country.    It looks now  as though tho smelters would   be  independent of the  western  coke  ovens judging from the  following thafc rise fl.om fche bnrnillg Banda  dispatch from New York:  "On account of a strike  Where is it?   Why has it not  beon found?   In trying to find tho  answer to these questions, many a  prospector has packed his burros  and,   without tolling any ono his  destination, has gone alone out in  tlio desert, determined to have at  least ono good  try at finding this  the richest and most talked of mine  in the great Colorado plains.  Somewhere,   near   three buttes  involving   all   of   the     British  Columbia  mines tho   British  Columbia Copper Co. has been  drawing its supply   of   coke  since  May 1  from   Pennsylvania.      While this coke  is  much better in  quality,   the  cost   of   smelting   has    been  somewhat increased.  Recently, however,  the Canadian Pacific reduced its rates  on , coke,   which enables   the  British* Columbia1 Copper Co.  to continue operations   with  tho Pennsylvania coke satisfactorily, and the Granby and  other mining companies have  resumed     operations,     using  Pennsylvania coke.    Tho Canadian Pacific Railway is now  willing to  make further   reduction in the rates on coke  which will enable the copper  companies of British Columbia  to continue operations under  normal conditions and   they  may hereafter use the   Con-  nellsville coke preferentially."  Do not give advice.    Sell it.  TnE small-minded man will become an enemy if you do him a  favor.  Tni: wise boy gets his hair cut  short so the school-teacher can not  pull it.  O.ve of the finest characters on  earth, is the man who pays for his  paper in advance without being  asked.  One of the penalties of being  clever is to-be hated, by the inferior dubs in your own line of  business or profession.  It was Junius who remarked  that ''Tho citizen who is truly  loyal to the chiof magistrate, will  neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures."  the gold lies easy of access. Untold wealth waits for the man who  can find the spot where a party of  tired and discouraged trappers  camped more than three-quarters  of a century ago.  Tho story of the lost Pegleg mine  is never told twice a like iu all its  details, but in its essentials the  story is always the same.  Smith, 'the finder of the mine,  was a one-legged man who hobbled  around on a wooden stump and  was called ' 'Pegleg" as a matter of  course.    He had joined a party of  trappers,   at   St  Louis,   in 1S3G.  They made their way   westward  to the headwaters of the Colorado  river, which they .followed down to  the   mouth   of   the   Gila.    From  where   Yuma   now   stands    they  struck out in a southwesterly direction.    They travelled for three  days across the desert towards a  range of low hills that seemed only  a good days march away when they  left the river.    At the end of three  days they could hardly   see  that  they were any nearer, but just before nightfall   on  the fourth day  they reached the hills where they  made   camp   at  the   foot   of the  one at the extreme south end of  the range."   There is no twilight to  speak of in that country and when  it once gets dusk it is soon dark.  While   the   others   were   making  camp, Pegleg .went off to find water  as their supply was running short.  He went up a canyon   that   ran  northward from  their camp   into  three buttes.    Before long he had  reached the head of the canyon and  there   Fcramliled up to the top of  one of the buttes to look over the  nearby ground.    If he conld have  seep n gi-ocn _ sj ot anywhere from  his point of observation, he could  known he had found water.    Not  a sign of moisture could   ho see  anywhere.    But he had noticed in  tho bottom of tho canyon and on  top of the buttes that ho was among   ,       ...       "*'"'" " "*"'���������> ,J"������ ���������jU  nnn,l,*,i    ������  Wlth  an lndia������ who was employed as a laborer on  Governor  cido which way to go to find it as  their supply would not carry them  while they retraced their steps to  the Colorado river. They saw a  high mountain looming up against  the skyline to tho northwest, and  decided that they would be as apt  to find water there as any where  and thoy also knew thafc if thoy did  not reach it that day, that some of  them would never reach it at all.  Their only hope, then, was to  reach the mountain that day before, their little remaining water  was utterly exhausted and they  were left to perish miserably on  tho hot sands.  That evening they reached tho  mountain after a toilsome and  heartbreaking tramp, .and Pegleg,  who seemed to have tho best staying powers of any in the party,  started right on for water and found  ft fine spring in a few minutes.  The mountain was named after  Pegleg because ho found tlie spring  and it bears his name this day on  the maps.  At Temecula, the travelers were  told that possibly the black pieces  were gold but they paid  no heed  and when the tests applied at San  Bernardino showed that they had  really found gold, they were still  evidently  unconvinced,   for   they  paid  not the slightest heed to tho  imformation and drifted elsewhere.  After the discovery of gold,  by  Marshall,   in   IS-18, and thousands  upon thousands of excited men wero  rushing to the new diggings, Smith  seemed to have, begun to appreciate  the value of what he had found.  Anyway he went to San Francisco  where he organized an expedition  to go out on tho desert to locate the  three buttes and pick up the nuggets.    Fully equiped   for *a   long  stay,    the    expedition   left   Los  Angeles in a southeasterly direction  for Smith Mountain, where the last  water was to bo had.    But before  reaching the springs at the foot of  the mountain, some Indians that  had   been   brought along to pack  supplies, slipped away in tho night  with all the provisions and a large  share of the/jamp outfit.  Tho  expedition   was   forced to  turn back and all but Pegleg were  glad to reach San Bernardino without fatalities.    He was downhearted  and   moody all  the  way and  when the party- reached San Bernardino he disappeared and was  never heard   of  again.    He  just  dropped out.    ne may have gone  alone to try to locate his mine and,  if he did, he left his bones to bleach  on  the   desert.   A    good    many  skeletons have been fountl on the  Colorado   desert,   first   and   last,  since then, but his would be easy  to identify because of the wooden  stump.  Some may feel that no man  would think of starting off on such  a quest without ample equipment,  aud the answer is that the writer  has actually met a one-legged  tramp coming across Arizona on  crutches, begging his way and not  even carrying blankets or canteen.  Crutches sink into the sand quite  a way; he hardly seemed to be  walking; it was more like wad-  iDg���������fording the desert, so to  speak.  From this lime on the story of  the lost mine began to spread and  has been told and retold all the  way from California to New York,  and probably every newspaper and  magazine in the country has made  some mention of it. There- were  some, of course, who could and did  appreciate tho facts and who never  gave up the idea of making a trip  across the desert in search of the  gold they knew must be there.  The next part of the story has to  zaBSEKBtaaeaica  water from the Spring at Smith  Mountain, leaving tho spring at  daybreak and about three o'clock  in tho afternoon would como to the  place where thero was much gold.  In 1SG0 a man by the name of  McGuiro organized a party of six in  San Francisco to go to'the Pegleg  mine. He claimed to havo been  there and. showed some black gold  nuggets to substantiate his statement. He had a good deal of  money on deposit in one of the  banks in the city and claimed  it  came from the sale of other nuggets deposit   or ledge, bearing* gold in  We have noticed that the present ago ruiiH to fancy names, and  that such good old names as  Bridget, Patrick and Hannah are  gradually becoming alomst obsolete. There is a good deal in  a name, especially at tho bottom  of a cheque  Tun Methodist printing oflice in  Toronto is congested for  lack   of  room,. but Dr.   Briggs says   that  they will have to stay in   their  present quarters until the   Lord  shows them another place.     We  have often seen the devil trying to  boss a print-shop, but this is the  first time that we have heard of  the Lord  being the foreman   or  managing director of a   printing  office.     However  Ktrauge   thinga  occur  in   the   cent    belt,    even  amongst the Methodists,  pieces of black metal that impeded  his wooden stump, no finally  picked up a few small pieces and  put them in his pocket, thinking  the yellow spots he saw indicated  copper pyrito (chalcoprito) which  is a bright brassy yellow.  This was  twelve  years   before  Marshall found a fow shining nuggets in the tail race of the sawmill  at Coloma, on the south fork of the  American river, a little more than  .fifty miles from Sacramento, twelve  years before the discovery of gold  in California and a long time before any gold mining   was  done  west of the Carolinas and Georgia.  There were a few hundred men in  those states who would havo known  that the black lumps were gold but  probably not a man  west of the  Mississippi   river,   at  that   time,  would have known what they were  without appl} ing f'omc teat.  No water was found and when  morning camo the party had to de-  Downey's ranch, which is known  as "Warner's Ranch," and stretches from the foothills below Smith  Mountain,  to the   desert on   tho  south.    He would frequently slip  away from the   ranch,  when   he  could   secure an outfit for a long  trip,   and  upon his return would  often display aquautity of nuggets*.  These nuggetswere always black  and readily passed at the country  stores���������only he was not particular  whether he received full value or  not, often remarking that he knew  where there were   plenty   paore.  All this finally came to the ears of  Gov. Downey and he went to the  ranch to talk with tho Indian about  it, but. when he arrived he found  the Indian had gone to Anaheim  and been   killed   over a game of  cards,    Gov. Downey talked wilh  the dead Indian's squaw and from  her he learned that her husband  a*���������*-. ���������������*- ���������.-, ta,-sWly ot^r^zzs.  like those he still had  The McGuiro party left Smith  Mountain, passed through San Felipe Canyon, and their whitened  bones were found a long time afterwards out on the desert.  In 1S75, a prospector in trying  to make his way across the Colorado desert from Arizona, wandered  far off tho route, becamo lost, finally made liis way up a canyon in  search of water and found nuggets  on top of a butte; but he was now  too near death from want of water  to delay   longer   than to pick up  just a fow.    A day or so later ho  crawled up to tho spring on Smith  Mountain���������the samo   spring   that  Pegleg found in  1830,  tho samo  that gave tho Indian his supply of  water when ho made his trips to  the buttes and  the   samo   spring  that gave a final supply to tho McGuiro party in 1800, as thoy started  on their death march through the  San Felipo Canyon:  As soon as he was able to travel  he camo to Los Angeles, where lib  had a relapse and died. Before  death overtook him, ho told his  story to his doctor and gave him  the nuggets (which were black)  amounting to ������2,000.  Of course the doctor mado an  effort to find the mi no, but he, too,  failed and died.  One day the agent at a little  station on the Southern Pacific R.  R. reported that a squaw camo in  and showed a quantity of black  gold nuggets which she had carefully wrapped in her blanket. She  refused to talk; she knew the value  of the gold and would only point  in a general direction towards  Smith Mountain.  It is generally difficult to persuade Indians to help a white man  to.locate gold; they are naturally  secretive, and when they havo told  the white man where to find treasure, the Indians say tho white man  always keeps it all and drove the  Indians oil'.    This samo reticence  is found among the Indians elsewhere,  so it is not a trait'of the  Southern California Indians alone.  A few years ago a man stopped  at a mill on the Colorado river a few  miles above Yuma.    He came out  of the desert on the west and told  the engineer at the mill that he had  seen some queer things on his trip  and  then took from his pocket a  handful of black nuggets which he  said were as heavy as lead, but he  added that ho guessed they were  nothing but iron pyritios, and laid  them  down.    After he had gone,  the engineer tested one of the nuggets with a file and discovered it to  be gold.    He started in pursuit o'f  the man, overtook him and learned  from  him that he picked up tho  nuggets in a gulch where the wind  and sand had driven him for shelter  and where he stayed all night.   He  said there were cart-loads of that  stuff there!    These nuggets answered to the same description   as  those that Pegleg took  into San  Bernardino, that McGuiro had in  San  Francisco,  that the   Indians  gambled away in   Anaheim   and  that the dying prospector gave to  his physician in Los Angeles.  A prominent citizen of Riverside  spent many years trying to find  this great store-hoiiHO of wealth,  made many trips across the wastes  and finally, never returned.  A great number of stories have  been told about white men and Indians showing nuggets which thoy  claimed came from the Pegleg mine  and only   two years ago an employee of the Santa Fe R.R. who  was on the run from Los Angeles  to San  Diego asked for a lay-off,  went on a prospecting trip and returned with some very  rich ore  claiming that he had   found  the  Pegleg.    The ore he  showed indicated that he had made a very  rich strike but it never came from  the Pegleg.  In all of the stories, with the  exception of the man who went  into the mill on tho Colorado river,  there has always been the trip  across the desert, the three buttes,  'and the final arrival at the spring  Somewhere out in Colorado desert there are three small hills, containing enough gold to make many  men rich. Somewhere out there,  this dazzling fortune will be found  by some one .who has the endurance  and perseverance to keep at it, and  sufficient knowledge of the desert  and prospecting to know how to  conduct his search.

This seems quite  a good deal overdrawn; an then  when one recalls the wordB of the  man who had actually "camped  among cart-loads of that,stuff," it  apt to make one feel thafc the Peg-  leg mine is even richer than its  searchers have ever dreamed.

The Poor Preacher  You never hear of the preachers  going on strike for higher wages.  They are supposed to work for the  Lord and live largely on air aud  prayers. Lately, however, there  seems to bo a disposition to give  the parsons more pay and thereby  get a better class of heaven boosters. * At the Toronto Methodist  Conference tho Rev. James Allen  had the following to say on tile  subject: *  "It is better to have a few ministers and pay them well, than to  have a lot.and starve them as we  are doing now. God Himself does  not ask a man to live on less than  proper food and raiment, yet some  of our pastors receive stipends of  $400 and $500 per year, out of  which they havo to keep a house  and help everyone in need. Rev.  Mr.' Allen said that ministers were  sometimes forced to give up their  calling because-they  were  unable  to pay their debts with  the small  salaries they received.    In country  places the wives-and children of  poorly paid ministers had to suffer,. -  and this was a shameful condition  of affairs.    "We need strong men  in the pulpit,"  he added,   "but  when are we going to get them. if  we dwarf men intellectually at the  most critical period of their ministry by not paying fehem  salaries  that will enable them to buy a book  once in a while ?"

I'm sure I always been a friend  to Clara Parkins and she can't say  different.* That is not if she  speaks .the truth. She couldn't  when I knew her.  And 'bout me not being much of  a figger.  Well, I don't wan't to show her  ap,.but I could. If I liked to  open my mouth I could say a lot.  "One thing, she couldn't go to  service and wear a cap. Not unless she fixed it on with tintacks.  Got no hair to pin it to. Ask her  why it would'nt grow; the health  lady can tell her.  I got a lovely head of hair.  Everybody says so. I could pin a  chest of drawers to it if I liked.  Bit different to the half ounce of  shag she tries to put in curl-papers.  Good job for Her I'm easy going  and not soon upset, bat she has no  business to talk about my ligger.

Laut deserves high place  She was born in Winnipeg In* 1872, and while in her junior year at tho Manitoba Unlvorslty her health proved so delicate that sho was ordered to pack  up.her school,books and go out into the wild, free, regenerating life of tho  Solklrlts, to seo what these'noble mountains of Canada could do for her.  There, In a Hfo-glylngratmosphere, where every breath Is a natural tonic,'  she rode and walked her way to health, defylng'the decrees and prophecies  of hor physicians. She found <ln an Indian reservation located In the wilds  of the mountains/material for her first book, "Lords of the North."  Miss Laut was the first woman to invade the mining camps of the Canadian Rockies and to st������idy the life there at close- range. Her virile graphic  nowspaper letters on this subject wero not signed, and editors of mining  journals into whose hands thoy chanced to come, praised them, with enthusiasm, and wondered why -other Eastern writers did not picture mining life as  It really was, llko the man whose article's were appearing in the "Winnipeg Free Press" and other-papers.  .To'maa'ln tho jrough, as Miss Laut found him'in these camps uncon-  tamlnated by civilization, she pays high tribute when sho says: "There r  learned to: appreciate the chivalry and courtesy of a class receiving small  credit for such traits, and this, though I was entirely alone, without one  ���������instance of disrespect .or annoyance." On hor travels for literary material  Miss Laut has had many Interesting experiences, among.them an eight  weeks' cruise In a government mailboat along the coast northward from St  Johns. She made many* later visits to the Solkirks, whoro thc natural freedom from the trammels of social .convention appealed strongly to her  Beside hor later books, "Heralds of Empire," "Tho Story of tho Trapper"  and tho "Pathflndors of tho West," Miss Laut has written strong articles on  politics and social <*uosLlons;' subjects raroly handled by women and still  moro rarely with the directness, clearness and force which seem to nor-  meato with vitality everything sho writes. Hor contributions to tho "Now  York Sun," the Now York "Evonlng Post," tho "Rovlew of Reviews" and tho  "Century" show a virility unusual from the pen of a woman so feminine and  so unspqllod by success as Miss Laut.  .KuLrod ������cordln������ to Sctoltho l>>rlifmo-it oro-mUt., lu llio yw i((.-, *,,yr, c.

McClatchy of  the Sacramento Bee is taking a vacation   in   Europe   and    writing  about it to his home folk.    In his  last  travel   letter   he    describes  Monte Carlo.     Perhaps it would  be more accurate to say that - he  muckrakes Monte Carlo. , Hearken to him:     Monte   Carlo   is   a  beautiful spot without and surely  an Inferno within.    ObservatioiLof  the swarms of crazed   men   and  women at the gambling tables is  surely not pleasing.    The thing is  sickening.   I have never witnessed  a scene which forced upon me at  once such a wave of pity for  the  victims, and such intense loathing  for the fiend incarnate in  control.  On almost every face you  could  read despair���������in almost every eye  you could see the insanity of the  lost gambler.     Avarice and fear  wrestled  with their victims,  and  over them all Satan chuckled.     I  saw one old  woman of over 70,  tottering feebly on crutches,   supported on either side by a nurse,  take her-seat at one of the tables.  With palsied hands she placed her  bets, while behind her corpse-like  face her eyes burned as torches iu  a cavern.    She was blind to everything but that table���������deaf to all  but the croupier's voice.    Not even  the   whisper   of   God    Almighty  could have reached her.    I saw a  young and handsome woman leave  the table after having evidently  lost her last cent.    The look upon  her face wns pitiful in its desperate  tragedy.    It meant either one of  two things���������suicide, or something  infinitely worse.     And I rushed  out for a breath of fresh air.

Humanity progresses like a tightrope walker who carries a balancing stick in his hand and throws  his 'weight to one side when lie  goes to fall to the other. The  fourth century, for instance, produced in Rome the most unbridled  and dehumanized splendor and  self-indulgence that history has recorded; aud it was precisely at  this time the race leaned farthest  the other way and mon began by  hundreds to abjure the world, and  to starve and mangle themselves  as never before. While one end  of society was greedy for new  wines and stranger lusts, thc other  extreme was hungry only for self-  torture and martyrdom.  The same law or tendency is  permanently at work. In proportion as the wealthy and successful  class today are given over to the  pleasures of the smart set, they  welcome and applaud thc more  rigorous and ascetic sects,  itans cannot exist without  foil of dissolute Cavaliers.

Every  household, should have a moderate  supply of pure wines or liquors in  the closet for emergency���������either  unexpected visitors or sudden illness, when a drop of pure liquor  in time may forestall all necessity  for drugs.  flronwod Eiquor Company, Importers, Greenwood, B. fr ���������  A TRIAL SOLICITED  L  W. JENKS,  Prop.  ������  Progress in the South  When it is stated that the vested  wealth of the Southern states is  now $5,000,000,000 more than that  of the entire country iu 18G1 at the  outbreak of the Civil War, some  idea of tho progress mado may be  realized.   To   this may be added  the facts that the cotton crop for  1910   was worth $1,000,0000,000,  or double the value of the world's  output of gold for the same period;  that in the South more than three  times as  much land is underlaid  with coal  as  iu   Great  Britain,  France, Germany and Austria combined; that the South has more uu-  mined iron tlyin all Europe; and  GREENWOOD and  MIDWAY STAGE  Leaves Greenwood for Spokane  at 7 a. m'., and for Oroville at 2:30  p. m.

It is evident that with so much  material and potential wealth at  hand, with bettor economic methods the South will bo able to enter  upon a period of tremendous advancement. In the past it has  boon the practico to ship raw material long distances. This has  been especially tho case in the  manufacture of cotton and of lumber, the two principal factors of  Southern wealth. Where this is  manufactured upon tho spot it also  means the creation of a greater demand for coal, thus again avoiding  tho shipping of raw material." It  is said that the South of today is  by no means" that of the generation  of the Civil War, or that immediately 'succeeding it, but it may also  be safely assorted that the South of  ton years hence will have littlo or  no resemblance to the South of  1911.  ________^_  Tho moro a man goes around,  the less ho is apt to develop into a  crank.
