BEATTIE, Manager. -       Greenwood Branch.  BOOZE IN RUPE,  , "Although it is practically assured^ that the advocates of Local Option in the administration of liquor  matters intends to test the feeling  of Prince Rupert citizens as to the  introduction of the "Canada Temperance Act," better known as the  "Scott Act" in "that city,  it is a  virtual certainty that if  they' do,  the verdict will be 'anything but  encouraging to these intemperatps  of the temperance party,"  says a  well-known   barrister   of    Rupe.  "Prince Rupert has had a taste of  how impossible it is to t prevent or  control illicit liquor, selling under  the 'no license' system," this gentlemen   continued.      "Conditions  there were approximately the same  before the incorporation of the city,  as they would be under Scott Act  rule���������but for the important fact  that the police power was available  and active in endeavoring to prevent the saleof liquor.  "Yet we have definite knowledge  that upwards of seventy 'blind pigs'  were operated at one time, and  that the proprietors maintained a  regular, staff of spotters, paying  each a wage of S3 a*, .day to keep  eyes upon the police and advise of  their proximity.. It. certainly was  enough, too, to destroy the" health'  of the patrons-of these dives���������the  awful stuff they served as liquor by  stealth. Paying no license fees  and constantly taking their chances  of being heavily fined, they vended  some of the most awful concoctions  that a depraved palate ever endured.  "It may be fairly said that when  the proposition was put up to the  province of British Columbia as to  whether or not local administration  of the liquor traffic should be initiated provincially, our district of  Prince Rupert voted 'yes.' But  that did not by any means suggest  that the residents favored any such  law as the Scott Act. It so happens  that by the incorporation of the  city, Prince Rupert obtained the  same opportunity as it would had  the Local Option plebiscite carried  ���������that of deciding for itself as to  the most practical method of liquor  administration. And with an experience of 'no license' very fresh  fresh in mind, the citizens at the  first opportunity, afforded by the  initial civic election, proclaimed  for the entire ticket committed to  high license aud strict regulation���������  the principle embodied in tbe new  provincial liquor traffic act, which  comes into force next month."

Phoenix is the pugilistic center  of the Boundary, and hives within  its confines a 6core of pngilsts who  could have driven Jack Johnson  more than twenty years ago. The  following taken from the Spokane  Review will show that, even now,  the laurels of Jack Johnson are  trembling in tho breeze around the  swift town of Phoenix :  "J. T. Ryan of thin city, who  controls the slot machine business  in British Columbia, tells of a big  husky miner at Phoenix, B. C,  who has been sending ambitious  heavy-weight pugilists to dreamland in jig time in various smokerd  and semi-professional bouts in that  country for some time.  "Mr. Ryan says that the Phoenix sportsmen will back the big  fellow for big chunks of money,  and that they are now talking of  raising a purse to pay for his training expenses and for the advice  and coaching of some ring veteran  like Billy Dolaney to take hold of  the young fellow for a couple of  years. They believe ho has the  stuff to make a champion.  "The embryonic champion's  name is Eugeno P. Shea. He is  about 26 years old. standp six feet  three inches aud weighs 215  pounds.  ' "Ryan 6ays also that if tliere is  any heavyweight in this country  that wants any of Shea's game, he  can win us much as $5,000, for tbe  miners of that country will gamble  on him against anything in the  business, Johnson alone excepted."  Miss Mcintosh, in company with  MiBS Brown, intends opening a  dressmaking establishment next  month, in Armstrong.  For the first six months of this  year, Phoenix took iu $6,029, and  expended 85,893. The city has  ������1,136 in the treasury.

Justice in Enderby.  The. Press has the following  article showing how law and justice  is dealt in Enderby :  "A few days ago there appeared  in Enderby a man slightly crazy  and full of booze. He appeared at  several homes and abused the occupants in tho foulest words speak-  able, frightening the womenfolk  and threatening to burn them out.  Complaint was laid and the man  arrested. The man had no money  when arrested. It was feared he  was crazy, and to send a crazy man  man to Westminster would cost  the city probably $75. The next  morning the man was turned loose,  and took the train out of town.  "On July 1st a drunken Indian  choked an inoffensive. Chinaman  and hit him on the head with a  rock as he passed in the shadow of  a lumber pile in his regular round  of duty, after threatening to kill  him. He also battered a Chinese  lodging house. The Indian was  arrested, tried and sentenced to  three months iu Kamloops jail and  a fine of $30.  A few evenings later, Arthur  Quiun, a notorious, good-hearted  character; everybody's friend, but  an enemy to himself; was drunk on  the street.

Robert Bailey was sworn in as  special officer to do the trick.  When arrested he had between 830  and 840 ou his person. The following morning he was summarily  sentenced to six months hard labor  iu Kamloops jail and to pay a fine  fo $50, in derail It of which he shall  spend six months longer in "jail���������  one year in all.  "Verily, verily, Justice doth  come clothed iu many garbs. Today it may turn a criminal loose to  save expense: tomorrow ife makes  a convict of a good-natured drunk,  innocent of crime and deserving of  sympathy and the uplifting hand  of fellowship rather than prison  stripes. We make convicts out of  them, and then pride ourselves on  our superior virtues aud brotherly  love.    Oh, gawd 1"  Creston wants a box factory.

Little Johnnie, who hail been praying  for sonic months for God to send hiin a  baby brother, finally became discouraged.  "I don't believe God has any more little  boys to send," he told his mother, "and  I'm going to quit it."

Now that it is definitely assured  that Penticton will he- a divisional  base there is considerable speculation as to where the next base  will be located. A railroad generally places a divisional base every  130 miles and from Penticton that  would bring it to a point about  twenty miles up thb Coldwater.  It may bo that tho base will be  brought to Merritt, however, and  that is tho opiniou of men iu close  touch with the railway company.  From Merritt to North Bend the  distance is 89 miles but that is not  thought to bo too short for a division in view of the heavy grarteti.  President Warren is oxpected back  in Merritt early next week.���������  Nicola Now&*  "-/   r.  ,-f"<-  ~fS VJ-J-iri-.aUl.B-W! jV.������  *aasS^ 5t?*p*&^*ki'  THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD.

"Yes, .you  can���������if you go about It  right.   Y'ou see"���������   And he briefly but-  lined his talk with Mary.   Mr. Arnold  smoked fiercely while the young man  talked." and then-they went over a detailed plan together.  ,.  When the young man Anally left, the  elder shook his hand heartily.  ,    "I'll do my best, Dick. Mary's a good  '"'daughter, but she'll make just as good  ���������it wife, and I'll divide."  That evening Mary came to the dinner table red eyed and white faced.  Little by little .her-''father drew>the  story from her. When she had finished he said: "I'm glad of it; Mary. I  , never would have asked you to ijiye  him up, but I am thankful that you can  see for yourself." He% did not say  ' what she could see. "And no.w that  It's nil,over "'I don'.t mind telling yon  that tliere are as good fish in the sea  ns have been caught so far. Now,  Dick���������well, he's so slow!

Tut!   Just put your mind tn  It and you can do it.   I am anxious to  see you marry and be happily settled,  Mary.   Of course I didn't say so, because I could see that yon didn't rerillj  cure for Dick.   If you had cared yoiiV  have married him two years ago.   Bt  now (lint he's gone"���������   ���������  Mary gasped aud stooped for he.  napkin, sitting up againwith, a red  iVe. Not care for Dick! Perhaps  Dick thought that'too. ;  "And,"aside from that." went on her  father. "I have been engagrr: to''Marian Iloward'for n year, and I know  how you will feel about keeplug me  waiting too long. Of course I should  not think of-'inarrylngagaln while you  are with me."  .'., . ,  Mary thought she must faint. The  room went round and round, and then  she heard a voice, which must hnve  been her own, stiffly congratulating her  father, heard him say something the  words of which she could not" dlsthi-  trulsb, and (lien she was up in her own  room.       ��������� .:   '  "Oh," she moaned, "what,shall I. do?  No one wants me. Papa Is going to  iniirrv again, and even he thinks I do  mil cure for Dick. 1 must have acted  terribly for papa to think thnt. And  why didn't he tell me that he wanted  to marry? I'd have been glad of It,  for then I could have married Dick and  would not have needed to worry about  papa al all. Oh, it is cruel! And now  It ls too late. No wonder Dick stopped  caring if 1 acted like that���������like they  seem to think i have." She sobbed  miserably.  '���������1 like Marian Howard. I have always wished I could have her with me.  I'd like to live with them, but ihey  don't want me either. Papa has said  time and again thai such combimitlous  are always unhappy, and so 1 must go  away somewhere."  She sobbed herself to sleep that night  after hours of wretched reflection and  almost desperate thinking, She did not  go down to breakfast, but when she  heard her father leave the house she  went downtown and drew all of the  mouey which she had in the bank.  Then she bought a ticket for. New  York.  At noon her father, seeing how  wretched she looked at dinner, felt like  a brute and came very near to spoiling  the whole thing. But she slipped away  too quickly to give him time to commit himself, and wheu he was sure she  was in her room he called Dick cautiously up over the phone.  ' "I guess you'd bettor come over.  I've made a beastly mess of the  thiug," he said. Then he called up to  Mary that he had to go back to rho  oflice and told her not to sit up for  him and cleared out, feeling like a  coward.  This was the chance for which Mary  HAS LOST HIS JOB.  The  Professional Juryman Passes  Away by Recent Order.  The average man is notoriously so  anxious to escape jury duty that a  character who made it his chief business in life to obtain selection as n  member of coroners' juries would  seem to many the creation of a Dick-  onsonian. imagination. That such  characters exist, however, tho authorities know full well, and many a coroner whose duties cull him to the  morgue to hold inquest on the death  of some unfortunate, recognizes old,  familiar faces when the jury is sworn.  The reason for this is that the mode  of assembling coroners' juries is attended by no solemnity or huggery-  niuggery. An officer of number one  police division is assigned to the duty  of digging up a jury for an inquest lo  bo held that night. He is supposed  to go out on tlie street and impress  ���������luch citizens as can give no excuse  for evading the mandate of the crown.  'As many persons do not like this  press gang system of rendering service to their country the professional  juryman who eimcrly welcomes the  tabic is 11 boon. He picks up an odd  dollar or so that way and the task  of sitting in judgment with the issues  of life and di-alh before him adds  greatly to his self-esteem. After he  has figured at half a dozen inquests  he becomes in his own eyes a part of  the great fabric of law and order  which covers us all and takes his  duties as seriously as though lie were  the. presiding justice of the Court of  Appeal. In short he is .ipt to become  a nuisance; he thinks that the coroner  and   the   representatives of   the  FORGING YOURSELF  TO TAKE FOOD  walling.    Hurriedly she finished j erown ������ro rather lax   in the perform-  wns  packing her suit case, wrote an agonized note to her father, and, after  dressing herself in the long coat and  dark veil which fleeing heroines always wore In the plays she had seen,  she let herself quietly out at the front  door and reached the ear. A young  man jumped oil' the outgoing car, looked at her sharply and then swung up  the steps of the ingoing car after her,  but she did not notice.  "Was this what her father had meant  in his telephone message?" thought the  young man. Well, he had made a mess  'of it.  It was raining by thi'j time���������a dreary  little drizzle���������and when Mary alighted  at the union station she would have  fallen on tlie slippery steps had uot  some one seized the suit case and  caught her arm firmly. When she had  regained her balance the man did uot  let go, but slid bis grasp down to the  cold, wet hand.  "Let me-go! .What do you menu?"  she gasped, and theu she kuew. She  began to cry.  "Mary, Mary, so contrary, come on  home again." said Dick gently. "We  didn't mean to go so far as this, dear,  in our little plot."  "We���������our plot! What do you mean?  Did you and father fix all this up for  a trick? And���������aud"��������� To Dick's great  surprise and relief she began to laugh.  He had expected tears, anger, even  rage. And theu he began to feel foolish.  "I guess I got just what I deserve.  I was blind as a bat," she said. "When  do you want me to marry you, Dick,  if you can forgive me enough to want  meat all? Dick, you didn't think that  I had really stopped caring, did you?"  Mary's  father  was  in  tlie .drawing  room  when  they got home and came '  out into the hail to meet them.  "We've  been out walking." .said Dick blandly.  "Yes, I see," said Mr. Arnold, ignoring the suit case and Mary's unusual  apparel.   "Fine night, Isn't it?"  GOLD  HIDERS.

His neighbors, the Talemancas, are  wholly different They regard gold or  emeralds, also found in Colombia, as  simply a medium ot exchange for whisky or-aguadierite. The Talemanca is  superstitious to an absurd degree aud  wears a wild turkey's toot on a necklace as a talisman against sickness  and bad luck.

He sees that  they let points "touch.11' on and up-  perlainin' to" the death of the deceased slip by them. So lie takes to  asking questions himself and encourages the less sophisticated jurors  around him to do likewise provided  they do not show an ambition for  leadership. And if the coroner dares  to advise the jury as to what veidiet  it should bring in, that personage is  snubbed-for his pains by a finding  contrary to  his instructions.  For such reasons the order went out  recently in Ontario that the most industrious of coroner Is jurors was to  be debarred from his chief pleasure  in life. Under no circumstances is  he to be accepted for jury service  again,���������and thereby hangs' a tale.  The reader of the daily newspapers  must have noticed that of Lite coroners' juries have been loading their  verdicts with condemnations of almost every existing institution. This  particular juryman is one who figures  at most political meetings as the man  in tho audience who asks questions of  candidates he is opposed to, and leads  the cheering for the idols of his heart.  He used to write letters to the papers,  until the indifference of editors showed him that the press of the community was in the rut and hopelessly  blind to the public weal. Then he  conceived the idea that the inquest  verdict could be made the vehicle of  his opinions. On a recent occasion  there was a death which gave scope  for wholesale condemnation, and after  the first silting of inquest he walked  down street with a newspaper man  with whom he discussed the great  possibilities of the case in the way  of a good, lengthy high sounding verdict. With the reporter's assistance  a finding was framed for use. at the  concluding sitting which condemned  the administration of the affairs of the  city of Toronto from garret to cellar.  When the jury retired to consider the  evidence he sprang his prepared verdict on the others and kept them out  for over two hours while inducing  then 1 to adopt at least a portion of  its contents. The coroner had to kick  his heels for this period while the  jury talked over a matter that seemed to call for only five minutes' deliberation. The culprit responsible  for the delay was discovered. It was  the last straw. The "Kibosh" was  put upon him at headquarters, and  Othello's occupation is gone. He has  sat upon his last corpse.  The  Tortures  of Indigestion  Banished  by  the  Tonic  Powers of Dr. Wil  Hams' Pink Pills  Victims of indigestion have small  choice between two evils���������on the one  hand a starvation diet, which means  great weakness and depression of  spirits, and' 011 the other hand forcing themselves to take nourishment  in spite of the acute suffering inflicted by each meal.  In the search for a cure they find  common medicines upset the stomach  and render the food more difficult to  digest. Laxatives are violent and  weakening, and so-called "pre-digost-  ed foods" merely evade the cause of  the trouble and the stomach steadily  grows weaker.  Tho common sense way of curing  indigestion is the Dr. Williams' way  ���������the making of new,, rich blood by  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that gives  lone to the weakened system and invigorates the distressed digestive organs.- Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have  cured thousands of the worst eases of  indigestion through their simple tonic  treatment and one excellent example  of these cures is the case of Miss M.  Y. C. Kober-io, Sorol, Que., who  says: "For upwards of nine years I  suffered almost continuously the tortures of indigestion. At times I had  no appetite; at others there was a  craving for food, hut whatever I took  caused mo tlie greatest pangs. As  tlie result of thc trouble I suffered  from violent heai'aehos, and I grew  pale and weak. I tried many different medicines; some gave mo a little  relief, but none gave me any permanent- benefit until I h'gan using Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. I had only  taken these a few wfeks when I found  such lHp as T had not found before.  The pains after citing grar'ually dis-  apperir"d, my appetitio grew better,  and after using the. Pills for a couple  of months I found myself completely  cured, and have not since had a  twinge of (ho trouble. I gratefully  recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  to all who suffer from any form of indigestion."  Throueh their action on the blood  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure such  troubles as anaemia, indigestion,  sick headaches, rheumatism and all  forms of nervous troubles such as  neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, and, partial paralysis. These Pills are especially valuable to growing girls  and women and cure the headaches,  sideaches and other pains known only  to thorn.

A plucky attempt was made recently by Mr. White to win l-he prize el  $50,0*00, and at lirst his success seemed assured.  He was compelled by adverse  weather and engine trouble lo wait, at  Lichfield, with sixty-nine miles still  to be traveled, until loo late to comply with the conditions under which  the prized  is  offered.  Mr. White started on his great journey soon after live in the morning  from Park Royal, his mother and  sister being present to wish him good  luck. . v  The machine rose easily and gracefully, the engine worked beautifully,  and everything thus early .promised  well for the daring young aviator'.-  trip.  Flying splendidly, Mr. White soon  '.-������������������ft the accompanying motor-curs he-  hind. At one period he attained a  speed of sixty miles an hour.  At Rugby he made the first of the  two stops he was allowed on the  journey, and after having some refreshments left for Crewe, which was  to hi- his second halting place.  Fortune; however, decreed otherwise, for, numbed with cold, and fueling sorely in need of rest, Mr. White  descended for a second time at Hade-  more, near Lichfield.  While awaiting more favorable con-  ditons his biplane was seized by a  boisterous wind and overturned, suffering damage that was repaired in  time for a flight the following week  only by the fiercest exertion on the  part of his mechanics.  Scottish and Irish Bogs.  The recent "bog-slide" in Count}  Roscommon, recalls the fact thnt Ireland has still'close on 2,830,000 acres-  of bog-land, varying in depth fron  nineteen feet to a few inches. Scotland is also "rich" in bog. Rannoci-  Moor, for instance, is nearly twent}  miles square. Moss Flanders, ii  Perthshire, still contains overv 10,00f  acres of peat, and it is reporte'd thai  the deep Black Moss contains 800,00!'  cubic yards of peat. The reason why  so few calamitous bog-slides tnk."  place in Scotland compared with Ire.  land is due to-the varying constitu  ents of the bogs, their situation, and  the higher "cultivation of neighboring  lands. After a long spell of.rain���������th-  usual foretunncr of an Irish bog  .slide���������great quantities of water accumulate at the bottom of the bog. Th.-  mosses and dense plant life on the  surface, or close to the surface, prevent evaporation, and the pressure ot  the steadily rccumulating water eithei  rises the superincumbent mass and  makes it overflow its natural boundaries, or bursts a subterranean pas  sago. Where, however, the fringe, of  the bogs have been reclaimed, as in  the case of most of the Scottish bogs  ond the land in the neighborhool  drained and more or less cultivated,  artificial escapes are created which  drain off tho floods. Hence the main  reason for the paucity of bog-slides  in Scotland compared with Ireland,  where the bog lands are still in a  "state  of nature."

One man who had out his wife's  nose off altogether was told by the  doctor that, in order to make a good  job of tlie "repair, it'would be necessary to send to England for an rrti-  ficial nose. ,  On being told that the cost would  be thirty rupees the man hesitated.  Asked the reason of his hesitation, tlie  man said, "Well, it's this way, sahib,  I can get a ,new wife for eighty  lupees." (Laughter.) "However," pio-  ceeded the doctor, "he agreed eventually to have,the old wife patched up."  ,"Eveiy year," he, added, "we are  called upon to make new noses, and  some.'of the ladies are very well satis-  ed with the result."  Robbery and brigandage were the  profession of "some oi the tribes,  especially the Waziris.'When a child  was boin his mother usually placed  him iu a hole in the wall of the madhouse, and said to him, "Learn to be  a thief." Thieving was largely done  by digging under the walls of the  mud-houses.  But the Waziris also had a sense of  humor. Last year thero was a big  assemblage of chiefs at a ceitain  centre to meet a political officer respecting the lawlessness of the trih-s.  Having been sumptuously entertained, they presented the officer with a  beautiful antelope as a mark of appre-  ciiition.  Before the chiefs had reached their  lulls on tlie return journey a message  arrived stating that an antelope had  been stolen from the house of a  Nawab.  Speaking of the blood feuds of the  various tribes, Dr. Pennell said these  were so intense that' it was onlv possible to cultivate land within gunshot  range of the villages, each 'of which  possessed a gun tower with loopholes  for firii'g. Each man worked in tlie  fields with a rifle over one shoulder  and cartridges in his belt, in order to  be ready for all emergencies.  In such a district the advantages  of European surgery were naturally  much appreciated, and a doctor could  pass from one tribe to another without fear; in fact, each tribe would  provide him wilh an escort to tho  boundary of the next'tribe".  Patients come to the hospital at  Bannu from as far away as Cabul,  and often theie would arrive at the  hospital a string of the blind, each  holding on the other in front, .and  a man who could see a little leading  the lot.  In the course of an interview with a  reporter. Dr. Pennell gave another illustration of matrimonial jealouty  among the border tribes.  "One day," he said, "ah Afghan  chief who had been across the border  came back and saw his wife spjaking  to a man over the wall in his corn-  pound. He at once drew his sword,  cut off his wife's head, and threw it  to the man, saying, 'If you want tc  speak to her now, you can.' "  Many of the patients at the hospital  are the victims of frontier raids. One  man who was admitted there for treatment had been shot by his uncle. Tlie  bullet hud gone through his lung, but  careful nursing pulled him through.  "When he was convalescent," said  Dr. Pennell, "he called me one day to  his bec'side and said. 'Oh, sahib, I  want you to give me some cartridges.'  I said, 'What do you want the cartridges for?' Pointing to his chest, he  replied, 'I have this score to pay off.'  "I said. 'I am very sorrv to hear  that. We have had a difficult task to  cure you, and now very shortly we  shall have the same trouble with your  uncle.' H������ said, 'Oh, no, you need  not be afraid of that, sahib. I am  a better shot than he is.' We did not  get the uncle in, and we heard eventually that he had killed him."

"  "I pride myself on the fact," said  the haggard-looking poet, "that I  have never written a line which any  father might not read to his daughter."  "That is," added the philosopher,  'if by any chance he should think it  worth while to do so."  Surrounded  by   Blacks.  A thrilling tale of five English officers and a few native troops having  been   besieged   for  three  months   by  cannibal hordes comes from Obundu,  in Southern Nigeria.     The besieging  Munchis are almost thc only Nigerian  tribe not subdued by British advance.  They are tall, powerful savages, and  fight with poisoned arrows ond a long  najtive sword  The Britishers had with  them a company of the Southern Nigerian Killes  and   two  Maxim  guns.  The   Munchis   have   been   attacking  them spasmodically for three months  past,  and  for  two  weeks the  troops  had practically no rest.   Three-qua'r-  tors of the company were on outpost  duty round the station, and the whole  company were under arms every day  from 3.30. a.m. till an hour after dark.  One  officer  sat   up  every  night  and  the  rest slept   in  their "clothes.    On  hearing of   t leir   straights   a   relief  force of  rial   e  troops  was sent  out  from   headquarters, * which   after   a  splendid forced  march, covering   200  miles by river and 100 miles by load  in  61-2  days,  arrived  in   the   beleaguered post.  Cotton Bread  Bread made from cotton seed flour  was exhibited on .the board of trade  recently by Charles fctearn. The  bread, although ten days old, was  sweet and nice, and resembled brown  bread. The cotton seed flour was  giound and the break baked at Ennis  Tex. The flour can be had at $3 a  ton, or 1 1-2 cents a pound. People in  Texas are booming it as a substitute  for wheat flour.  , Gen. Jackson had won the battle of  New Orleans.  "Just as likely as not," he reflected,  it will turn out that I've committed a  monumental blunder. I ought to have  let Pake'nham had his way, and take  the whole Mississippi river. It would  have been cheaper. Now, this countiv  will have to improve the blamed old  stream itself!"  Years afterward, however he. changed his mind and decided that it was  best for the victors to do the spoiling.  ^���������nBM  Africa's Color Problem.  Replying to tlie toast of his health  at n  farewell   banquet  given   by  tho  Chamber of Mines at Johannesburg,  Lord Selhorne sroke about the colored   races  in  South   Africa  who  were  not natives  ��������� people of partly white  and partly black origin.   He believed  the tendency to drive colored people  down  to the position of Kafiirs  was  unjust and  unwise,  because they often had the thoughts and feelings of  the white man, and, one day we might  have to face a great concerted movement of native races.   Lord Selhorne  prophesied that in the event of such  a terrible catastrophe they would fin I  the leader of the native inces to be a  colored man with  tlie feelings, character,  and  superiority  of  tlie   whitd  man, if they persisted in tlie tendency  to degrade the colored people to the  .condition of the native?.  A certain British officer was relating  the story of one of General Buller's  retreats.  "Buller," he said, "was splendid.  He retired without losirrg a man or a  flag or a gun."  "So I've heard," said one of the  company, "or a minute."���������Youths'  Companion.  The Original  Rough  Rider.  A man who accomplished much for  Canada, as one of the original band  of bustlers connected with the Canadian   Pacific   Railway,   passed   away  in Virginia recently in the person of  General Rosser, who  was selected  a3  chief engineer by the Si iith-Stephen-  Angus syndicate when they obtained  the  contract   for   building    Canada's  first' Transcontinental Railway.   Gen.  Rosser, as chief engineer, had charge  vof the final selection of the route and  also of the work of construction and  was very popular in the West, where  he  appeared   to  feel   much   more   at  home than in the East.    He is well  and    affectionately    remembered    by  many of the old-timers.    Before coming to Canada", he had been engaged  on  similar  work  in  connection   with  the Northern Pacific and had already  made  a  reputation  for  track-making  in the prairie country.    Gen. Rosser  was one of   the   war   heroes   of the  Southe'n   Confederacy,   having   beeu  one of the. dashing, irregular cavalry  leaders who accomplished much wonders for the Southern cause by raids  and by brilliant intelligence work. He  was af riend. and   favorite   of   both  Gen. Lee and Stonewall Jackson and  entrusted  by both  commanders  with  many important duties.   Such success  did he and  his command of gallant  mounted rifles and scouts attain during the war that it has become customary   for   United   States   military  writers to describe him as the original  American rough rider.   It is said that  when Theodore   Roosevelt   organized  his corps of irregulars during the Cuban war, he.used .Rosser's standards  for selecting his men, and his methods  for   training    and    equipping   them.  Gen. Rosser's death passed almost unnoticed in Canada,  but in Manitoba'  there is a town which perpetuates his  name.  Queer Taxes.  Henry   VIII.    taxed   beards,   and  graduated   the  tax-according to. the  status of the wearer. For example the  Sheriff of Canterbuiy was constrained  to pay the sum of three shillings and  fourpence for the privilege of sporting his venerable whiskers.  Elizabeth  likewise fixed a similar tax on every  beard  of   over  a  fortnight's  growth.  Eliziibeth   was  also  bent on' making  the   country   of   a   religious   turn   of  mind, and all who stayed away from  church   on   Sunday    rendered   themselves liable to a fine.   In 1695 it was  decided that the arrival of every.child  into the world should be greeted by a  tax.   The birth of a child to a duke  cost  the   proud   but  harassed   father  thirty pounds, whilst the advent of a  commoners' child into the world was  hailed with   a   tax   of   two shillinss.  Moreover, it was an expensive matter to die, and bachelors and widowers  also   were  compelled   to   pay  for the  privilege of single blessedness.   With  the   advent   of   more   constitutional  days freak taxation did not cease.   Tt  was due to AVilliam Pitt that the window tax was instituted.   'In the reign  of George I. it was necessary to have  a license in order to sell hats.   Then  there was the tax on hair powder, and  the tax on   watches  and clocks.    In  the reign of George III. a duty of two  shillings and sixpence  was   imposed  on bricks.    At a later period  in the  same  reign  bricks  were  divided,  for  the purposes of taxation into common  and dressed bricks, and the duty on  each kind of brick was regulated ac  cording to its size.

A story of the surprising agricultural possibilities of the Peace River  Valley. 700 miles north of Edmonton,  is told by Robt. Jones, superintendent  of the experimental farm at Fort Vermilion, who was recently in Edmonton on a trip for supplies. To prove  what he says of the fertility of the  north country trom which he comes  he brought with him, as gifts to the  Edmonton Board of Trade, samples of  grains and vegetables grown on the  five-acre farm at the outpost of civilization that would do credit to any  market garden or farm in the central  or southern portion of the province.  The farm lies in.the n'ver flats at  ���������Fort Vermilion, a plot of five acres,  and for its area one of the rr.ost productive pieces of ground in all Canada.  Half a dozen varieties of wheat were  grown on it last year; Preston. Lad-  apo, Red Fife, Bishop, Early Reager,  all spring wheat  Tomatoes ripened on the vine; pota-  i toes, turnips   mangols,   sugar   beets  I and    carrots    grew    in    field    crops.  Radishes, lettuce, onions, celery, asparagus,   parsnips   and   cauliflowers  grew in this Peace River Eden.   One  of   tlie   cauliflowers   weighed   ll ]-2  pounds.  Actress and Social Worker.  Miss Tita Brand, the well-known  actress, who so ably assisted her mother, Miss Marie Brema, in the production of Gluck's famous opera "Orpheus" at the Savoy, in London, recently, has interested herself largely  in the social welfare of women, and  five years ago started a weaving school  nt Westminster for the benefit of East  End girls, with a view to saving some  of them from the factory work which  often proves so detrimental to health  nnd character. Practically the whole  of Miss Brand's dresses, as well as  those worn by her mother, are made  from the material woven by the girls  at the Brema Looms���������for such is the  name Miss Brand has given' to her  weaving school.

'dear girls  Maori Salutations.  The Maori natives of New Zealand  have many quaint and queer customs.  One of these, somewhat akin to tlie  British habit of kissing or shaking  hands, is called the "Hougi," and  consists of rubbing noses, much as a  pair of affectionate horses might do.  This greeting is always observed at  the meeting of friends. They have  the faculty of calling up affecting memories at will till tears flow freely.  Falling on each other's necks, their  heads covered with their garments,  they wail, sob and chant over the  many phases of their life since the  last meeting.  To Seek Buried  Hoard.  An appeal is being made in Johannesburg to finance a treasure-hunting  expedition.    The treasure is the supposed .hoard  of old  Chief  Sekekuni,  who is believed to have buried it in  a certain cave in 1379.   The story goes I  that the treasure consists of two big  skins full of sovereigns and a rot fill- I  ed with diamonds.   Details connected  with tlio burying of the hoard l.avo  been obtained from an old native, nnd  funds arc being asked for in order to  finance llio expedition.  H9at.

We  a lniire the spring chicken when it  is boiled to a tender finish, and the  fresh egg when it is poached or  scrambled, but beyond this . our  interest in henology ceases.  nelson, b. c-  wholesale  dealers in  Produce   and   Provisions  In England, any loss'caused by  sparks from locomotives has to be  made good by the railway companies.

At a "meeting of the directors of  the -Kettle Valley Agricultural  Society, at Midway," on July 13th,  a committee of really progressive  men and women were selected from  each of the adjoining, towns, to  take the management of the pro  posed fair, to be held, at Midway,  early ia October. Nevertheless  the season has been a dry one and  exhibits will probably be not nearly  as good as they would have been  had the crops been as plentiful as  formerly; yet it was thought there  would be a fair exhibit, and everyone seemed sure of a fairly successful fair. A building was leased  for the purpose, and a committee  appointed to see to the incorporation of the society. Now it is to  be hoped that the good people of  Greenwood  sound or beneficial point, and' they are  justly entitled -to .be classed as fanatics  of a common order.

It stands every citizen in  the district to endeavor to make  this, our first fair, a howling success. Let it not be said of Greenwood that 'we are selfish and will  not patronize this fair because - it  is not held here.' Let us realize  that this fair is for the encouragement of agriculture aud-the building up of this great couutry, in  which we all should be deeply  interested. We little dream of its  hidden resources. This country  can be made to blossom as tho rose,  its possibilities are many. Its  success depends on the concerted  action of all, and we should con- samples from  sider that we all have au  interest1 this alone  is  '��������� Charley's Letter. '���������  -  Stewart, July 12,'1910.-  Dear Colonel:���������Tlie gold looks  yellow in Stewart today. Your,,  cables anrt filed in tlie tide flats.  I have just returned from the hills  with Sir Robert Kirk wood and  Lord Howard Thompson, of San-.  don. This camp looks permanent,  and'has enough of coons to make  it lucky. Stewart puts me in mind  of home, with its sourdough, boiled  porcupine and bad boozerine. Look  out for wild-cats. There is a bunch  of them here getting ready to roosfe  on the glory of the camp. Give  my regards to all the parsons. I  put on the -plate  next Sunday.  Yours Hopefully,  Charles French, O.P.  Air Ships Needed.  Aftkb simmering down the news  from Reno we have come to the  conclusion that Jeffries had a clear  case of buck fever, when he saw  Johnson.      ______  The editor of the Stewart Miner  was recently presented with a  barrel of beer. The paper came  out ae usual: but it called the Rupe  Optimist a slanderous rag.  Radium in England.  England's only radium deposit, in the  ' Trenwitu mine, St. Ives, Cornwall, has  yielded its first infinitesimal crop, of  approximately one-twentieth of an ounce.  At the present market rates this is worth  #250,000. The Austrian Radium Bureau,  which has a sort of corner in radium, has  arranged for its acquisition.  The pitchblend from which it is extracted has been treated by a new secret  process invented by Sir William Ramsay  at a laboratory in London. Besides radium, the mine is producing quantities of  uranium, thc mineral in use for harden;  ing steel.  in tbia fair. Help to build np the  country and you build up your own  private interests and make the  country worth living in. A little  aid from everyone and then you  will have the satisfaction of saying  'we have a fine country.' Encourage agriculture, for it is the  back-bone of any country. With  our vast agricultural resources and  our unlimited deposits of valuable  minerals Greenwood ought, aud  will yet, be a boom town, if the  people will make it so. Don't be  dead ones I t Let us awake to our  own responsibility iu this matter.  C. F  Stork.  THE SCOTT ACT,  To the Editor of The Ledge.  I am informed that Dr. Speucer, aided  by his band of extremists intend to attack  the county of Yale, in an endeavour to  pass the Scott Act. A successful passage  of this Act means the -stagnation of business, demoralization of the county, and  the loss of a legitimate revenue now  collected by the government. It also  means the licensing to sell the vilest and  cheapest of liquor, by a chosen class of  vendors. The whole argument of the  local  option  people' cannot  show one  Accompanying the party composed of Francis L. Otter, T. J.
