Last week four Doukhobors in  Grand Forks,- were sent to Nelson  jail for three months, because  thev would not register deaths  that had occurred in their families.

Evidently some of the early recorders were careless in their business habits.  KETTLE RIVER NOTES  M  E. L. Steeves' ranch has at last  declared a dividend. Last week  he sold two cases of eggs to Alex  Broomfield, but rather marred the  effect by having subsequently to  buy back some of the eggs to feed  the hungry miners on his claim.  We are rather scared to broach  the subject of road gangs again, but  we feel that we should notico tho  splendid work being carried on at  Jackson's g rade by John Dock-  steader's road gang, the road being  now 100 per cent, better and safer  than before. (All wishing to reply to this please give their real  names.)  Two travelling real estate men  made their appearance on the river  this week, selling Coquitlam lots.  Having just returned from the  coast, we did not buy a lot.  Sam Larsen has just bought a  new I. H. C. automobile.

Do not forget that July 1st  stands for the great celebration at  Bock Creek. There will be lots of  baseball, bucking contest, brass  band and Budweiser going, and in  the evening all the dancing you  want. So come along and bring  her with you.  Now that we are back from the  coast, it occurs to us most strongly  that we would rather be a hitching  post in Eock Creek than Lord  Mayor of Vancouver, especially  during a session of the Good Government League.  Tehrcee  umxmmmsmmmx THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA.  THE  LEDG  Is located at Greenwood, B. C, and can bc traced to many parts of  thc earth. ��������� It comes to the front every Thursday morning, and  believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. It believes  in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in thc mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.  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  thc county of Bruce. To the United Stales it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.  R.   T.   LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD, JUNE 20, 1912.

Tho disgusting oarrion rots by  the roadside. Nature makes it repugnant to our nosee because she  wants us to keep away from it.  It is not for us.  But it is for other organisms  just as important perhaps to  Nature's plan as aro we. It is for  blizzards and worms.  Nature is as painstaking in carrying on the decay of the fallnn oak  as she is in attending to the development of the sapling.  Death is as clean as birth.  Life's exits aro as necessary as  life's entrances.  And, this being true, is it not  possibly true that a man's failures  are as useful, wholesome and normal  as his successes?   And  may  in bactoriologic buckram.  Doctors occasionally prescribe  out-door sleeping-rooms for their  patients, but I never knew a doctor who had an outdoor sleeping-  room of his own. Most doctors  sleep in stuffy cubby-holes, swim  in grease, and halts competitors.  That is why so many of them ,go  under the ether-cone.  The secret of keeping well is so  simple that the high brow scientist  never thinks of it. He is liko tho  man who had travelled all ovor tho  world, seen everything, heard  everything, knew everything, and  finally wearied, returned home,  when it ocenred to him to look out  of the window.  In order to keep well you should  cut out the meat breakfast; spend  at least two hours a day in tho  opon air, and make it anile, whenever out of doors, to breetho deeply  with the mouth closed, andjiold  tho breath, giving it out slowly.  Then havo plenty of work, cultivate some fad or hobby, and think  well of everybody, especially of  yoursolf. In other words, work,  laugh, study, play, mix and flavor  all with love.  Here is a proposition so simple  that everbody understands it,  everybody knows it, and the only  trouble is that while we mentally  know tho truth, we have not the  bodily technique���������that is, we  haven't the habit of health.  This Health Habit is ,a thing  that we can never get from professional healers whoso own bodies  aro on the bink.  In the past we have looked to  doctors for advice on the subject of  health. This is an extra-hazard"  ous proceeding. The key to health  is in your own possession. Study  your own case and take care of  yourself.  What the world needs now are  health experts, not disease specialists.  Ask the first physician you meet  if I am not right on this, and it is  ninety-nine to one hundred that he  will corroborate everything I say���������  even thc unpleasant facts about  himself.-Tho Fra.  shape and  size he is a perfectly  normal child.  The Canadian Spirit  There has arisen in Canada,  within ten yearH, a distinctly Canadian spirit.  ' The crystallization of this spirit  sprang from an unspokon idea in  the mind of ono man. This man  was Charles E. McC'ullough, of  Hamilton, Ontario.  In the year Eighteen Hundred  Ninety-two, thero existed in New  York a Canadian Club, made up of  mon born in Canada who had gone  to New York to seek their fortunes.  This Club was a social affair, and  at first had merely an annual  meeting', where a spirit of gontlo  jinkstido prevailed.  McCulIough, down at New York,  met with this Club.  Suddenly an idea seized him.  So McCulIough said, "If they  can havo a Canadian Club in Now  York, why  can't we havo ono in  Dead Towns  people.    If he had  has our sympathy.  to take it he  Unless a Chinaman has grandchildren he - is not permitted to  wear whiskers. .The barbers syndicate must have great power in  the Flowery Kingdom.  As far as we can learn none of  the real estate dealers in Vancouver, have as yet staked any  subdivisions on the dust blown out  of the volcanoes iu Alaska.  Judging from the number of  dirty banknotes in circulation, it  looks to us as though there would  be a fortune, in conducting a  laundry, devoted exclusively to the  washing of money.  Like must be easy in the jails of  Ii. C. for they aro always full, and  sometimes have to turn guests  away. It is little punishment to  serve a term in jail in this province, especially in winter!  The ways of creation aro indeed  wonderful and beyond our comprehension. A cow will lose her life  because she does not know enough  too get off a railway track; hut we  have never known ono that would  drink whiskey out of a bucket,  barrel or bottle.  and disillusions be as sanitary to  the soul as our joys and loves?  A life of perfect bliss is psychologically unthinkable. ~"  Suffering and failure are the  meat upon which greatness feeds.  Grandeur of spirit, nobleness of  character, and the glow of religion  are but the light of souls burning.  "This earth," says Anatole  France, "is but a grain of sand .in  the infinite desert of worlds. But,  if only upon this planet suffering  exists, it is greater than all the  rest together. What do I say? It  is all; the rest aro nothing."���������Dr.  Frank Crane.  Japan is tho most completely  vaccinated and re-vaccinated  country in thc world, and yet Japan  has thousands of cases of small-pox  every year. This great medical  superstition will some day be discovered, and' put out of business  by wiser generations of people.  Civilization makes many  changes. In the early days tho  squaws put feathers in their hair,  and put paint on their faces with ' and tho aura of unnumbered rogues  About Keeping Well  It is a good deal cheaper to keep  well than to be sick, just as it is  to.be sober than drunk. But it  ono wants to keep well ho should  not pattern his life after that of the  average physicion.  Most doctors are intent on curing  the sick.    Their business is palliation.    All of their energies go into  this genera] proposition���������to relievo  sick   people   of pain.   The idea  of keoping well people well does  not exist in  a highly   developed  sense in the mind of the ordinary  physician.    In  fact,  he does not  know how to  keep himself well.  And unless the idea is firmly fixed  in his own mind in reference to his  own cosmos, he is not a good man  to look to for the science of prophylaxis.  Most physicians use tobacco and  are more or less given to drugs and  stimulants. Thep take stimulants  in the morning to stir themselves  up, and sedatives at night to settle  them down. Go into any doctor's  office and you will find tho place  full of microbes, dust, dirt, effluvia,  Reviving memories of days and  events that Kansas would gladty  forget, comes the report of the  secretary of the Kansas Historical  Society that no less than , 2,400  towns, which had existence at some  time within the'past fifty years,  havo completely vanished from the  map of the-State.  Of the 2,400 lost towns some undoubtedly, were founded in good  faith but meeting with a sequence'  of misfortune were compelled to  give up tho struggle, for existence.  Tornadoes, drought, plagues of  grasshoppers and similar forms of  ill luck have accounted for their  disappearance. But the large  majority of the lost towns never  had the faintest prospect of per-  mancy. Most of; them were speculative towns, the quick crumbling  monuments of the greed of land  boomers, from whose operations  Kansas-in its day suffered, more  than most states.  The Kansas land boomer built  towns overnight, he left them to  their fate. They were largely  built upon paper, but had just  enough actual existence to attract  the unwary investor and Jha unfortunate settler, who generally  arrived on the scene iu timo to witness the bursting of the bubble,  If the history of tho lost towns  is ever written it will probably bo  discovered that the greater number  of them were founded in deceit and  avarice and never had the slightest  chance of becoming real. Kansas,  as a Stato, has no reason to regret  that they have gone, but a great  many individuals, poorer in pocket-  book, have the best of reasons for  regretting that they ever came at  all. ���������Cincinnatti Times Star.  Canada's Biggest Baby  What may be tho biggest two-  year old human sboing in the universe has been discovered at Hawthorn, Ont.', about eighteen miles  from tho Canadian capital. It is  the sen of Mr. and Mrs. Bros, old  country French farmers. The  child is twenty-six months old, and  weighs 127 pounds, and measures  for.ty inches around the chest.  When the baby was born he weigh-  only five pounds, and tho neighbors  declared Bres would never raise  him. Ho was brobghfc up en the  bottle, and showed no signs of extraordinary growth until ho was  a year old.    In other respects than  Canada?" Ho returned to Hamilton and organized his Club, with a  dozen' members.'  The idea was to consider and discuss things that were of importance  to the health, wealth, and general  betterment of the Dominion.  The Club grew, and a similar  Olnb was formed in Toronto. These  two������worked together. Then came  Montreal and Quebec, and so tho  idea spread until now,, there are  more than one hundred' Canadian  Clubs. Every city and town of  any size in tho Dominion has its  Canadian Club,  These Clubs are made up of men  in every line of legitimate business.  The trades, the arts, the professions  are all represented. Any man who  is ea7-ning an-'honest living and is  adding to the well-being of his  community is eligible.  In some cities an endeavor has  been made to build a home for the  Canadian Club; but iu order to  keep the institution a pure democracy and moving on simple lines,  the idea of the Clubhouse has been  made tabu.  The Club meets once a week at  noon for a very simple lunch,  which costs a member, say, fifty  cents.  If some speaker of prominence  and worth, who is travelling thru,  can be secured, so much the better.  But if not, some member of tho  Club reads a paper or makes a  speech, and anything that relates  to the well-being of tho Dominion  is considered.     i-  Tho Canadian Club idea has  spread until it forms a .veritable  Zeitgeist and represents a solidarity.  These Clubs are now federated  and work together in many ways  for tho common good of the Dominion. They havo brought the  people together, and especially commented the industrial intorests,  obliterated party lines, destroyed  sectarianism, erased denomination-  alism, and made the people acquainted with each other to a degree which no other movement of  modern times has equaled.  The national spirit in Canada  owes -its birth to the Canadian  Clubs. Also, it might well be  stated that much of the prosperity  which the Dominion is now enjoying traces to the same fertile and  fecund source. -^  The nearest approach we have in  the States to the Canadian Club is.  the Advertising Clubs. But these,  as yet, are wearing knee-breeches.  Yet the idea is growing, expanding,  and is bound to be an untold  source of good. Every good thing  begins as something else.  James Bryce, in his American  Commonwealth, called attention"  to the fact that American municipalities wero governed by the worst  in tho worst possible way. We  elected a Mayor and Board of  Aldermen, but over them there  was no supervising body. They  wero accountable to no ono, and  the little men we elected, occasionally got drunk on power. No  single individual could call, the  Mayor and tho Common Council to  order nor compel them to make an  accounting. Their answer was  simply a loud guffaw.  Power unrestrained develops into tyranny. Also, the open caBh-  drawer and no system of checking  and auditing is bound to breed  corrnption.  If the people are to rule they  must be banded together in some  way so as to express their opinion  and bring their influence to bear  upon their public servants. Otherwise, tho servants will think that  thoy own tho institutions, and will  act accordingly.  The Canadian Clubs exert a distinct influence over all public officials. The Clubs, being strictly  non-partisan, reflect the will of the  people and bring this will to boar  on the public servants. This applies not only to tho municipal  governments, but to tho general  parliament as well. A government  that is not audited and supervised  by Public Opinion is alway corrupt.  In the Unitod States the idea of  tho commission form of government without.a supervising board  is bound to end in disappointment.  This supervising board must not  be made up of members of any one  particular party. The whole people must express themselves and  focus thoir attention on their Commissioner, who is really tho general  manager of tho public business of  the town.  What we need now is to arouse  tho peoplo in tho Unitod States so  that tho Ad Clubs, or somo similar  federated band of citizens, shall bo  ablo to bring their influence to bear  on Congress.  To send our friends down to Wash-  in ton in hopo that they will do their  duties nobly and well, without  counsel or assistance from those  who sent" them there, unselfishly,  and for the good of all the people,  is quite absurd. You cannot slip  the bridle off your horse and turn  him loose on the track and expect  him to run a race. Both the curb  and the spur are needed.  In any city of the world let from  one hundred to a thousand of the  representative citizens meet fifty-  two times a year for an open discussion on public matters, and you  get a governing body before >which  grab and graft are impotent.  The Canadian Clubs have given  Canada pretty nearly a genuine  democracy.���������Tho Fra.  H. W. Farmer & Co.,  reai, estate,  Rock Creek, B. C.  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

It im not'much  larger than" a man's thumb nail.  It is four-tenths of an inch in  length, and a quarter of an inch in  width, and contains two hundred  and eight pages, each with nine  lines and from ninety-five to ono  hundred letters. The text consists of a letter" written by the in  veutpr of the pendulum clock to  Madame Christine of Lorraine in  1615.  The next smallest - book is an  edition of the ''Divine Comedy,"  of Dante. This is something less  than an inch wide, with type "so  small that a- microscopo is needed  to read it.  Thero is a Hebrew bible in tho  Vatican  for- which,  in   the   year  1512 the Jews offered Pope Julius  II its weight in gold���������$100,000;  but the Pope declined the offer.  >   Even more costly, if not more  valuable, is the official  history of  the War of Rebellion issued by the  United   States   government   at   a  cost estimated to be nearly $3,000,  000.    Of this amount nearly one-,  half was employed   to defray the  cost of printing and binding.    The  remainder of this huge sum was  expended  for salaries of workers  thereon,   rental  of buildings, and  purchase of stationery   aud   supplies, together with  money spent  in research.    It took ten years to  complete this  work consisting ol  one hundred and twelve volumes^  There is in the Chinese department of the British museum what  may correctly be termed the vastest  literary work in the world. This  is an encyclopedia of the literature  of China from the year 1,000 B.C.  to 1,700 A.D., a period of twenty-  eight centuries. The copy in England was purchased for 6(5,000, be-  iug "one of the three in existence.  Forty years* were occupied iu the  compilation of this stupendous  work.- The task was ordered by  the Emperor Kangho, who reigned  from 1662 to 1722.

It was compiled on  board the Olympic, was printed.in the  "Pall Mall Gazette," and .readsas follows:  "THE ENGLISHMAN"  Born in the flesh, and bred in the bone,  some of us harbour still  A New-World pride; and we flaunt, or  hide, the spirit of Bunker's Hill.  We claim our place as a separate race, or  a self-created clan,  Till there comes a da3r when we like to  say,  "We are kin of the Englishman."  For under the front that seems so cold,  and the voice that is won't to storm,  We are certain to find a big, broad-mind,  and a heart that is soft and warm;  And they carry their woes in a lordly way,  as .only the great souls can;  And it makes us glad when  in' truth we  say,  .    "We are kin ofthe Englishman."  He slams his door in the face ofthe world  if he thinks the world too bold;  He will even curse, but he opens his purse  to the poor, and the sick, and the old,  He is slow in giving to woman the vote,  and slow to pick up her fan,  But he gives her room iu an hour of doom,  and dies���������like an Englishman.  S. S. Olympic, April 20.  Ono Advantage  "So you have adopted a baby to  raise?" we ask of our friend. "Well,  It may turn out all right, but don't  you think, you are taking chances?"  "Not a chance," he answers. "No  matter how many bad habits the child  may develop, my wife. can't say he inherits any of them from my side of  the house."  It is not easy to be a widow; one'  must resume all the modesty of girlhood without being allowed even to-  felgn its Ignorance. -  There was an old man of Tarentum,  Who sat on his false teeth and bent  'um.  When asked what he'd lost  '   And what they had cost,  He replied: "I don't know; I just rent  'um."

Henry McLaehlan, the expert  sent ont by them, is hero and is  staying at tho Premier hotel. He  learned last night that from Hazelton to the already famous ��������� coalfields was a little jaunt of some  ISO miles, over a rough and miry  trail. But he is going there all  the same.  But his first trip will be to  Stewart to expeit certain copper  properties in the Portland Canal  district. Then he will look into  the Graham Island coal propositions and after that ho will spend a  short time on Copper river. Then  he will go to Groundhog and spend  the balance of the summer ��������� making  a thorough survey of those extensive coal fields.���������Prince Rupert  Empire.

An interesting feature  is the discovery of rich gold-tellu-  ride ores, such as have made Cripple Creek, Colo., and some of the  mines of Australia famous, proving  that thc comparatively rare mineral element tellurium is more  diffused over the earth than commonly   supposed,   and   in    many  tssssssmssmmmBamm  Only One More Week of the Big sale and we will then  leave Greenwood, and the Big Dry Goods Store of  C.

Rich  gold-telluride ores occur in a number of veins on thc cast Taku arm  above Golden Gate at the Engineer mines. Gold, as free gold, has  been found with gold-silver ores on  Bighorn creek and elsewhere.  Native copper occurs in veins and  distributed tlirough the basalts of  Copper island. , Antimony occurs  on Taku arm.  The geology of tlie region is  characterized by wide, steep-walled  valleys-and gently undulating interval loy plateaux. iNear the  Coast range numerous ice masses  or glaciers occur, the ice becoming  thicker and more plentiful as the  Coast range is ncured until a few  miles soutli of Allin lake and Taku  arm is the grout Llewellyn gloeier,  which over-rides all but the loftier  peaks and spurs. Tlie region, according to Mr. Cairnes of the  Canadian Geological Survey, appears to havo passed through a  period of depression and erosion  nearly to soa-levci, followed subsequently by a gradual uplift of the  central plateaux region of the  Coast range. This elevation resulted in the streams deepening  their channels followed by glaciers  which filled thc main depressions  such as Taku aim. Valleys produced by this glacial ion were wide,  deep and steep-sided. Portions of  the valleys evacuated by the glaciers now contain lakes Ity the, impounding of water by glacial moraines. .The region of the Coast  range is mostly of granite and  grano-diorite rocks. Northeast of  the range sediuientarirs and volcanic rocks prevail.  Thc telluride gold veins at the  Engineer mines are iu Jura-Cretaceous shales and slates. The veins  aro from a few inches lo a complex  over 200 feet wide and are filled  with quartz, calcite and breceiated  rock. The chief metallic minerals  are native gold with small particles of telluride, antimony and  pyrite. Pockets and shoots of  remarkably rich ore occur in some  of tho narrow veins. The telluride  is of the brass-yellow variety  known as calaverito. The free  gold occurs in leaves half an inch  across. Pockets of ore occur where  veins aro intercepted by cross  fissures.  "I- am convinced that there is a  good oil-field somewhere- in Southern Alberta and that the tremendous seepages in the Peace River  district must have a fountainhead  that will make the man who discovers it one of the richest-men iu  the world. Alberta will yet be  the most talked of country in oil  circles the world over."  I. E. Segur, former partner of  Rudolph Spreckles, of San Francisco, and the man who discovered  the Maricopa-Midway oil fields of  California, the largest oil fields in  the world, is in Calgary, and voiced  tho opinion that Alberta would yet  be the biggest oil producing country  on the face of the globe. 'Tu the  last 12 years Mr. Segur has drilled  over 50 wells and built and operated two of the largest oil refineries  in the world, and among oil men  he is regarded as the greatest living  oil expert to-day.  He is here for the purpose of investigating the Southern Aiberta  oil fields, and will leave for Pincher  Creek on Monday night. Behind  him he has millions 'of dollars in  capital of San Francisco oil magnates, and also millions of dollars  of Alberta capital, he having been  brought here at the instance of  Calgary and Edmonton capitalists.  Incidentally Mr. Segur is authority for the statement that already  the possibilities of Alberta as an  oil producing country have been  recognized by the big oil concerns  of the world, and in British Columbia,, near Oil City, in what is  known as the Flathead country,  big ' tracts have been taken up by  the American corporations who are  also locating leases in tho Peace  River country and in Montana,  IN THE SLOCAN  Tuesday last the transfer of tho  Idaho-Alamo group was made by  Thomas Avison to W. E. Finch,  and a cheque for tho first payment  handed over to Mr. Avison, and  thus was consurnated what is perhaps the best buy in the mining  history of British Columbia, the  amount named in the bond being  less than $100,000. Tho life of  tho bond extends ovor.a period of  thirty months, in five equal payments,  with continuous  dovolop-  MANUFACTURING JEWELER  The Only Up-to-Date Optical    MJi^.      R    C  Department in the Interior.    l^eiSOO,    SJ.  \s*  ment work.  The Idaho-Alamo group com:  prises 25 mineral claims, all or  nearly all of which were located in  1S92. The Idaho was first bonded  in the fall of 1S92 to Joe McNaught,  Ed. Gove, Bill Springer and Jim  Wardncr for $20,000, with a cash  payment of $1,500 and the balance  in 12 months, the profits from ore  shipments to be applied to pay-i  merits'on the bond. At the end of  the twelve months, $11,000 had  been paid'on the bond, leaving a  balance due of $9,000. Jim Wardncr was sent to Nelson to negoitate  a loan from the. bank. Although  Jim was one of the most successful  of promoters, bank-managers, as a  rule, considered him too optimistic,  and ho failed to get the loan. If  Springer or either of the othor two  partners had gone to tho bank  manager, ho afterwards Raid, they  would have got the money.- Thus,  through sending the person leaBt  fitted to attend to tho business, the  partners lost in the neighborhood  of a million dollars, for, with practical men in charge, the mine  would have paid large dividends.  In the fall of 1S93. tho property  was taken ovor by Captain Moore,  George Hughes, Humphrey Yorko  and McPhadden, known as the  Moore Syndicate. This company  in five years paid dividends  amounting to $400,000, and in 1S9S  sold the group to a Scotch syndicate for $400,000.  Tlio history of the Idaho since  1 SOS is the history of nine out of  ten mining properties operated by  British companies. The consulting  engineer and directors were in  London. The development work  was "steered" by cable from London, but, notwithstanding the  difficulties under which work was  prosecuted, oro to the value, of  $402,000, not, was mined and shipped by the company. The owners  finally became disgusted and stopped work a few years. For the  past three years Thomas Avison  has worked tho. property underlease.  Altogether, ore. to the value of  over $l,J500,oOO has been mined.'  The values of shipments ran  from 1-15 to 155 ounces in silver,  with an average of 40 per cent,  lead per ton.  Thero is a 200-ton  mill,  com  plete and in good repair at Alamo  siding.  The aerial tramway is out of  commission.  Development work will be under  the direction of William Springer,  one of the syndicate of purchasers.  Thus after 20 years since his first  bond on the Idaho he is again in  charge of the property. For years  he has baen one of the confidential  men for Finch & Campbell, and is  said to have turned down more  properties than any man living.  With forty years of practical experience in mining, sane management is expected  There "are three veins on. which  development has been done. On  one of there ore was stoped for a  distance of 700 feet. The old  workings reached a depth of about  700 feet.  In addition to continuing development in the old workings, a  deep-levol drift will be run on the  Idaho vein, for'-a distance of approximately 1,700 feet, giving a  vertical depth of 1,200 feet.  From this drift tunnel crosscuts will bo run to tho Alamo and  Cumberland veins. A compressor  will be installed and 15 men employed when work is started next  week.  With the development contemplated during the life of the bond,  tho Idaho-Alamo group will bo  proved cither a mine or a hole in  tho ground, with tho chances very  much in favor of tho former.���������Tho  Slocan Record.
