The town of Marcus, Wash., was  founded 50 years ago. The Bteam-  er 49 was built there in 1865, and  made two trips to the Big Bend,  above Revelstoke before it was  sunk in the Columbia river, not  far from the present site, of Arrowhead. In those days the faro was  $20 from the Little Dalles to the  Big Bend.  A writer in the Kaslo Kootenaian complains that upon Victoria  Day, the Stars and Stripes  were  given   more   prominence- In  the  Opera House, than the Union Jack.  This frequently happens in western  towns wnen one of Uncle Sam's old  boys has charge of the decorations,  and is rather distasteful to those  who love the flag that has trifled  with the  breeze   for a thousand  years.  Send for a catalogue of headstones and monuments, made by  the Kootenay Monumental Works,.  Nelson, B. O.  Lome Terhune returned to  towu several days ago, practically  blind irom the effects of the accident he met with several months  ago.  Before Judge Brown last Friday, Lester and W. J.

If Greenwood wants a fair this  fall more interest will-have to be  taken in the matter. The Agricultural .Association meets every  Wednesday evening, but owing  to the slim attendance so far  nothing has yet been done. There  seems to be a woful lack of public spirit in this rutified community. Evidently the businessmen  are too lazy and indifferent to  help themselves and the city ia  which they liye.  Al Campbell and Nat Darling  are somewhat like the Siamese  twins. They travel together,  and were in town this week.  One sells the spirit that moves  the world, while the other sells  cigars that can be smoked anywhere, without injury to the  scenery. It might be remarked  that Nat Darling has been on the  road nineteen years, during which  time he has sold over ten millions  of cigars, and told at least ten  thousand funny stories. If the  play comes right Nat will spend  the coming winter amid the  orange groves of California. THE   LEDGE,  GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  THE  LEDGE  Is located at Greenwood, B. C, and can be traced to many parts of  the earth. It comes to thc front every Thursday morning, and  believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. It believes  m justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; aud that one of the noblest works of  creation is thc man who always pays thc printer.  Thc Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  the county of Bruce. To thc United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.  R.   T.   LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIKR.  ^GREENWOOD, JUNE 13, 1911  A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would onco moro  like to commune with your collateral.  O.ntk in a whilo we Hud a sheep  in wolf's clothing.  Thinking Themes  Tin-: biggest lien does not always  lay Llm largest eggs.  Moxkv  is thc key that will unlock nearly every door.  Tiik  married   women  have  not  yet asked for an eight hour clay.  La no it is tlie parent of capital,  when Nature in its wild moods  does tint destroy them both.  "Whkds should be pulled early  and often, and now- is the time to  got busy at that kind of a job.  Somk live man should start a  land boom in the vicinity of Greenwood. There might be millions in  ife.    Tiik world has seen many a  great Irishman, but Pat Hand is  probably tho best known in the  restless west.  GAMi.Lr.vci in real estate is-becoming a menace in the west, to  the welfare of the greenhorns who  have a few dollars to invest.  Lv New York the automobiles  kill on an average 15 people every  month. Judging from this record  one would naturally think that too  many people fall asleep on the  streets of Gotham.  It is no longer safe to play poker  in Vancouver. If the police do  not break in and grab your chips  some hold-up mau with a gun will  take everything iu sight, except the  dummy and his furniture.  It is not truth wo want in art.  It is beauty.  To avoid quibbling, as to whether truth is not always beautiful,  and whether anything that is not  true can be beautiful, possibly we  had better say that what wedemand  of a work of art is not actual verity  but verisimilitude.  Just too say, for instance,, to a  child that it is a "true story," fearing the facts would clog the fancy,  and they usuaily did.  For romance is not of the world  as ife is, but of the world as colored  by the soul of the toller.  A    murder  takes    place.   The  minstrel may relate it upon   bis  harp  and  stir  our  patriotism   or  claii-pride; a woman report it weeping and move us to pity, a preacher may desire it as a martydom and  awaken our religious feeling; or a  physician may give his  account of  it in which  the main interest will  be its anatomical, scientific aspect.  Art, whether literature or painting, is not to give us the facts in  tlm case,  but tho beauty,   or tbe  beautiful facts, in the case.  Nothing is art that is ugly.  (Ife takes two to make a beautiful thing, however, the thing seen  and the person seeing.)   .  It is beauty that is the eternal  hunger. Nature is the exhaustless  storehouse of beauty. Art is the  purveyor.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  An Eastern View  Is the penitentiary at Kingston,  Ontario, there are 47 life prisoners,  two of whom are women. One  man has been there 44 years, and  no doubt be would die of homesickness if given hia liberty.  Tiie United States has paid up-  to-date 84,440,000,000 in pensions  to the survivors of the civil war.  As our 'friend Tom Walsh says;  the'States would havo saved barrels  ot money if it had killed the survivors before the war was over.  Lv a race the other day a speed  maniac drove an automobile 83  miles in an hour. Such exhibitions are of no practical benefit to  anybody, and are of great danger  to those who participate iii them.  Tho speed mania kills thousands  every year, but fools are like  weeds. You find them everywhere  AccoRDijffi to the Petrolia Advertiser tho oil fields of Ontario are  nearly petered out. It states that  20 years ago 13,000 wells were  pumping in and around Petrolia  but 4,000 would bo the outside  number. There is no great oil  fields in Canada, although the  linding of one would mean a great  deal to the Dominion.  Most of us are too good to onr-  solves.  Integrity that keeps a press  agent will see that the money nido  in taken care of though the heaven  fall.  (II. F. G. M. Toronto Star)  You have often heard how timid  British   capital   is.    Whenever a  private monopoly  wants to  keep  public ownership off the grass it  sots up a howl about the benumbing effect in British capital.    Don't  you believe it!    British capital  is  brave, brave even to rashness.   It  goes   wherever   it has a fighting  chance.    English money is particularly fond of British Columbia���������  the word English may have something to do with it���������and  it hikes  out here without ever stopping to  look at  the prairies.    Ife comes to  British  Columbia   for  mines,   for  sawmills,   for   timber   limits,   for  salmon canneries, for halibut  fishing,   for railways,   for  real estate  speculation.    It comes on business  and it comes  for fun.    Sometimes  like the sinner who goes to church  to scoff and  remains to  pray, it  comes  out to hunt big game and  stays-for investment. Not tho least  of British Columbia's assets is that  it is a sunny land,   much of it  wilderness, tho last home of romance and adventure in  the North  American wept.  English money has an abstract  Hound to most people, but in British  Columbia ife   envisages  itself.  Tho  Englishman #with the money  appears   in  person.    Ho may   bo  seen ou tho streets,  in the hotols,  in the clubs.    What does English  money look like?   Well if  it  is  young it is slender, and nosey and  leggy and wears a peaked cap and  a raglan and its troupers are turned up.    If it is middle-aged it is  portly,  and has a loud voice and  mutton-chop whiskers and wears  spats.   Old    or   young,   English  money looks good to British Columbia.    With a little practice it  is easy to tell' ife   from  German  money or any other kind of money  that may be used in new countries  English money is not an unmixed blessing.   For examplo. it keeps  British Columbia .from thinking as  much about eastern Canada as she  might.    To some extent it renders  British   Columbia  independent of  her eastern Canada beginnings.    It  makes for national unity when the  daughter furthest  wes fe can cast a  look back over her shoulder to fcho  old  folks at home.    Hut whenever  British  Columbia did   that   there  were tho mountains to come be-  tweon and presently she gofe ir-to  the habit, like California aud Oregon and Washington, of not thinking about the east at all.    Fortunately the sense of intcrdeponcence  is growing and   the   newspapers',  which used to lie very shy of eastern news, are giving ife moro space  for reasons of public policy.   When  things shake down t.lii.H Confederation of Canada will be a right lifetlo,  tight little union if'ever there was  one.  In proportion to population British Columbia is the most English  province in Canada, This is probably why it is the most broad-  minded pro vineo in Dominion and  scorns nagging restrictions. Easterners who drop info public meetings in almost any towu or villiige  in British Columbia aro surprised  at the intelligence, culture, and debating talent displayed. Ib is the  influcnco ol the well-born, well-  educated Englishman that does it.  His presence give.'! a tone to British  Columbia society which is nor  found on the prairies. This is the  desirable Englisnman, fehe best  citizen of the world that any nation is turning out the.-se day*.  Lotos  eating   seems  to  be   the  chief  fault  in   British   Columbia.  Ife may be fcho climate.    Ife may be  a spacious  western   indifference to  tho  march of  time.    Whatever it  is, the fact remains that so far as  mixed farming is concprned this is  Manana   Land���������do   it   tomorrow.  Butter comes from   as far away as  Now  Zealand, mutton   fiom   Australia.    Every   year    ten   million  dollars goes out of Hritisli Columbia  to the United States for food products that could be. butter raised at  home.    Time was when tliere were  one hundred and two hundred-acre  farms���������ranches they call them here  ���������which made  money growing the  ordinary things eaten by common  people.    But the subdividers came  along,   cut the farms up into five  and  ten   acre   lots  and   now   the  owners are waiting to  cash  in  on  them  on a front foot basis.    Lulu  Island, which was looked upon  as  the market garden district of Vancouver, is tbe latest spot to  be invaded   by  this creeping paralysis.  Of course at the back of it all is the  very human  desire  to  avoid hard  work with  one's   hand  so long as  there is an  easier  way of getting  ahead.    Natnre  is  so  prodigal in  British   Columbia,   the soil laughs  so freely when it is tickled, that it  seems cruel  to  ask it, to drudge.  This explains why fruit farms are  popular���������the. cosy,   ten-acre  fruit  farm,   basking on a shore of a picture-book lake, nestling at the foot  of a big brother mountain', looking  all.the world like Paradise before  the serpent came.  Fruit Farms in Fact and Fancy.  The fruit farm theory  runs this  way.    Ten  acres of fruit land will  cost cleared  and  planted S350 an  acre, or S3,500.    At the end of five  years, when tho orchard begins  to  bear, the farm will be worth   $550  an acre, and in ten  years on  the  same scale of increase it will be  worth  ������1,200  an acre, or ������12,000.  From tho second year on, until his  trees  start yielding,   the  farmers  should  make enough  to pay expenses from small fruits like strawberries and  from  vegetables   like  potatoes,   which, sell  for   S2   per  hundred    pounds.    Such   a   farm  when planted with cherries, plums,  and the five commercial varitiesof  apples, say ninety trees to the acre,  should earn  a net profit of $500  an acre on cherries,   $400 an acre  on  plums,   and $200 an aero on  apples,  about 25 per cont on the  investment.    That   is tho   theory  and that is thc result provided tho  fruit   farmer  really   fruit farms,  works hard, and attends strictly to  business.  What frequently happens is this.  A lazy philosopher, with a taste  for briar-root pipep, vague thinking  and a sunny life in the open air doing nothing,   makes  up  his mind  that ho will be a .fruit farmer and  live in a bungalow near to nature's  heart.   He knows as much about  fruit farming as he knows about  the canal system in Mars but he  goes ahead hoping to pull through  some way.   To begin "with, he buys  tho wrong kind   of land���������it has  alkali in it or hard pan or gravel  beds, or it is. on too steep a slope  aud slides away in the spring rains,  or   it's in a cup and cannot be  drained.'  But it makes no difference to  him.    It's the poetry of  existence he is after, not the profitable prose.    G-ive him his   books  and his tobacco and his thoughts  and a simple five thousand dollar  bungalow  over his head and the  orchard  can   take care of  itself.  Probably  an orchard  of sorts does  bless his shiftlessuess.    But that  doesn't- make things any' better.  All   our   open-air   philosopher   is  willing  to do is to say, -'Grow,  little orchard grow."    If the apples  won't   thrive with   that kind   of  treatment why, then, let  them  do  tho   other  thing.    He   gives   his  moral support to tho Gravensteins  but no   spraying.    He takes   his  lunch in the rose arbor.    Ho likes  to bask  in   the garden   with  the  larkspurs  and  Canterbury bells���������  because the larkspurs do not  spur  him   aud the Canterbury   bells  do  not wake him up.    At the height  of the fruit season he goes salmon  fishing and leaves the orchard  to  nature  and   the cow.    He lives at  tho rate of$2,000 a year when he  has only   a thousand   to spend and  ho pays two  men to do  the  work  that ho should do himself.    Needless to say his fruit farm is  a failure.    It is this kind of haphazard  amateur that gives the  business  a  black eye.  Somebody    has   said   that   tho  difference  between  a ranch and a  "raunch" is that the one pays and  the other  doesn't,    It  will  be  a  bright day  for  British   Columbia  when all  the rannches are ranches  ���������that is to say, when they aro iu  the hands of  men who know their  business  and  run  them  on  principles of industry to make money.  Whether his holdings are  big or  little the   '-rauncher" is the same  slack person all through the piece.  The* story  is   told that a  British  Columbia    "rauncher"    of   large  estate and  larger misfortunes was  showing an  eastern  senator over  the place and  wondering  why  it  didn't pay:    "Well," said the wise  man from the east, "for one thing  you employ too many men here."  "Oh," said  tho other, "that can't  be.    Wiry. I have barely enough  for my cricket elevens."  There is a point in this old chestnut which  cannot be overlooked.  What British Columbia needs is  farmers who will   do tho  timely  work of raising the stuff that most  people eat.    There's more   money  in the long run in necessities than  in luxuries, and  fruit is a luxury.  The prairie mavket for Britislf* Columbia fruit sounds big but the  prairie farmer   does not live   by  fruit   alone���������far   from   it.      Eve  tempted Adam into hard work with  an apple.    It looks as   if   British  Columbia might be cajoling herself  out of hard work by the same tactics.    The  word "raucher" seems  to have with  it a cannotation of  idleness, of indifference.   We move  tbat it be struck out and the word  "farmer"���������a   good,  hardworking,  back-aching, brow-sweating title���������  be used   instead.    Premier   Dick  MeBride could easily have such an  act put through the legislature and  it  would help British  Columbia a  whole lot. Tho converted "rauhellers" would have to live up to their  new name.  city state that the actual amount  of grading done and the mileage of  steel laid will at the close. of the  present season be greater than the  accomplishment- of either of the  two proceeding years.  At Kesplendeut, B. O, where the  steel gangs laid down their tools at  the end of the active season last  fall, track-laying will commence  again in less than a weeks time.  Abolish Treating System  The anti-treating law which will  be introduced by the Ontario government at the next session will be  far-reaching in its effect. The  hotel-keeper, the bar tender, the  man who buys the drink and the  man who is given the treat will be  prosecuted under the new law. The  tentative plans are designed to  reach every person who may commit an offence under the law. The  bar touder will likely be fined to the  amount of $100 to $200 and the  "fercater" and "treateo" will be  dealt with in a similar way.  H. W. Farmer & Co.,  REAJ, ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B. C.

Thero  Is some sort of accent on tho V but  tho sign writer seems doubtful about  It. Can you beat that narno for brevity? '  Like a forest fire, the news swept  the camp.   Big Ben, .the mighty, champion sawyer of the world/* had-been  done   up,    beaten    to   a   lay-down,  whipped, humbled ��������� and by an Indian.' 'Wonders   would   never   cetse.  The, loggers swore when they heard  the hews, but there was one satisfaction back of It -all."  There  would  be a fight worth going miles to see.  And that night, In camp, the gauntlet was hurled. Big Ben, striding upon,  his silent conqueror, knotted his huge  fists and  glowered down upon him..  "You������������������" he said wickedly. "I'll make  your head break your back." The Indian stared back stolidly.'  "Mebbyso." &  "When wlll.'you fight?"  "Sunday good..'nuff day for me."  ' The white man turned away with a  growl. This was Friday night, and the  time mentioned was not unreasonably  distant. He rolled himself in his blankets, grumbling like an angry bear;-  but the Indian, slipping quietly from  the room, stood long in the biting air  without, his face again turned toward  the  North.    And  as  he  looked   and  listened there came through the starlight night  a  long,   faint, quaverlrfg  howl,, and at its first note he started  as though stung.   With a quick leap,  he   reached    the   bunk   house,   and,  snatching his snowshoes from the peg  where   they   hung  against  the   logs,  thrust his  feet  Into  the straps,  and  went slipping away among the dark  woods,  along his  almost obliterated  trail of threo days before.   '  Kenny, a hostler, coming from tho  stable, saw him as he vanished In the  forest, and hurried with the news to  the long building, _,  " "The Injun has "puckacheed," skipped out, dead sc'art to fight,"-���������he said  disgustedly. And Big Ben, hearing  the words, sat up in his bunk, and  roared with disappointment and rage.  Down the steep hillside that kd to  the lake, the runaway shuffled and  slid ,the razor-edged air of the night  cutting keenly through flannels and  deerskin. ��������� At the edge of the frozen'  surface he stopped and 'swept it with  his black eyes, .but it lay like.a spotless sheet, and he hurried on. Ahead  of him was a low peninsula of tangled,  snow-buried brush heaps, nnd as he  rounded Its point he gave, a .guttural  cry, for a quarter of a mile ahead  of him a black mass lay upon the  snow, while slinking upon"it from the  shadow of the near-by forest was the  gaunt form of one of the great gray  runners of the North woods.  "Puckachee!" cried the man, from  a'.distan'ceof four yards. The wolf's  lip curled. .  , "Get out," repeated the Indian," more  harshly, his knife suddenly gleaming  In the. moonlight. Slowly, ominously,  the brute got upon all fours;.and, with  ears flattened and legs held stiffly,  paced around the man at a distance  of six feet. The latter, seeing his  great size, his gauntness, and the  famine in his eyes, crouched and  pivoted in his tracks, with his Made  held low. Three times the boast made  the circle complete, and three times  the man turned round and round  about, and never for an instant did  the red eyes of the one or black eyes  of the other fall to meet, point to  point.   Then the Indian rushed.  With a catlike leap, a snarl, and a  snap of his teeth, the wolf was far to  one side, while the assailant, tripping  unluckily, fell floundering through the  crust, from the violence of the wasted  knife sweep. And, before he could  clear the smother from his eyos, the'  stillettollke" teeth ofthe starving one  had sunk Into his right wrist, and at  the first crunch of the iron jaws tho  knife fell from the helpless hand. But  the man, twisting like a worm, bulled  the sinewy fingers of his free hand In  the shaggy throat above hin, and  floundered to his knees.  Not many men have strangled a  timber wolf that stood three feet high  at the shoulder with their naked  hand; but, for that matter, only one  man ever bore the brunt of Big Bon's  giant strength, and came off victorious. The Indian killed his enemy  ���������with the strength that the protecting  spirit of lovers gave him; choked him  until the slathering jaws fell apart,  and the glowing eyes grew dull as  dead ashes. Ttien, bleeding and dizzy,  ho arose.  "Live," he whispered, as ho painfully swung the motionless fo -m ��������� of  the woman across his broad shoulders.  "Live, and I will always work and  hunt for you. And may Mo-no-ko  lend me his strength once more, for  the trail Is long, and my strength runs  away like the waters of a river."  Bent nearly double beneath his burden, he shambled across the bosom of  the lake, floundered up the ridge, reeled along; the summit, and fell prostrate upon the floor of the bunk  house.  'Slowly the sleep-benumbed camp  aroused Itself, and stared through  heavy eyelids at the senseless woman  and gasping man, with tho. red Ice  thick upon his sleeve. Then, one by  one, they crept from their bunks and  bent over the motionless pair. .1 "ttle  was Bald, but muscle-knotted arms  laid thorn tenderly In a bunk, and  rough hands chafed the Icy wrists of  the girl until Bhe sat up, gazed won-  deringly about; and then, with a cry,  threw herself upon the still heavily  breathing form by hor side.  "It Is the wish of Mo-no-ko that we  part no more," said he," as his hand  closed over hers. "Your tonguo was  long, and my patience short, ya you  are my squaw, and our trails should  run side by side. One tepee ls enough  for both of ub, and the wolfskin shall  cover us when we are old."  Big Bon slowly got upon his feet,  and glared at his companions. "That  Injun Is the best man In tho woods,  and I want to hear some ono say  different," he said throatenlngly. "He'e  the one man that's got me beat, and  we two will saw those others out of  their hides yet. Shake hands, partner."  THEY   ALL  FALL FOR IT.

It is reported that $55,000 is the  amount of the bond that lias been  given on tho Idaho-Alamo group in  tho Slocan.  It is reported that Bob Irvine  and his associates, will do some  work this summer, upon the Queen  Boss group in tlie Slocan.  Negotiations have been proceeding very quietly for a few weeks  for the purchase of the Windfall  group of claims adjoining the  Nickel Plato on the Northwest but  not until Saturday evening last  was any definite knowledge obtained as to the agreement upon  price and terms for transfer of the  property.  Tho purchasers who have taken  the bond that is virtually recognized as equivalent to purchase  outright aro tho Hedley Gold Mining Co,, owners of the far-famed  Nickel Plate group of mines iu this  camp that has already produced  about four million dollars in gold  and the sellers aro L. W. Shatford,  F. H. French, T. D. Pickard, L.  G. MacHaffle and H.'A. Turner,  the negotiations being carried ou  by F. H. French on behalf of the  sellers and by G. P. Jones for the  purchasers.  The property was originally  owned by George Cahil, who mortgaged the claims about seven years  ago to Mrs. Doran and in default  of payment to the mortgagee who  did not want the claims and only  wanted the cash due in interest  and principal, the cash to satisfy  the mortgagee was put up by a  local syndicate got up by L. L.  Deardorf. The members of it were  Messrs. L. W. Shatford, F. H.  French, L. G. MacHaille and  Deardorf and they in turn gave a  fifth interest iu the group back to  Cahili. Besides advancing the  amount necessary to satisfy the  mortgage they paid for the remain  ing assessments necessary to crown  grant, and also the cost of crown-  granting.  The Deardorf interest was afterwards sold to T. D. Pickard and  H. A. Turner and when negoti-  ons for sale were afterwards opened  with the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  aud with others wcro it was understood that timo would have to be  given for proving value beforo cash  would be paid, but Ciliill not being  willing to consider any arrangement that did not include an initial cash payment before a bond  was given,' ofiored bin interest to  F. H. French for 85,000 which required an immediate cash payment and another payment in  thirty days. His ofl'tir was accepted by French on behalf of himself  and sonic of his associates.

For the past three seasons Thos.  Avison has been working a part of  the property under lease, and with  four men working about five  months, mined ore netting about  S5,000 each year. It is believed  that with deep-level development  large bodies of ore will be uncovered.-���������Slocan Record.  Ono of Hope's greatest gains from  the Steamboat Mountain boom, was  the revival of interest in mining  prospects nearer at hand. Of these  tho oldest were in the valleys of  the Coquihalla and the creeks that  feed it. Others were round the  bed of the Skagit River commonly  known as 2.'3-mile and others were  on the hills round Silver Creek.  All these districts will undoubtedly  as transportation facilities improve  and make development easier and  less costly, develop producing and  paying mines.  But the property already nearest  the condition of a producing mine  and most certain of early success  is the Aufeas Gold Mines Group on  Wardle Creek, a tributary of Silver  Creek, less than three miles from  Hopo and within a mile of tho C.  N.R. tracks.  With 300 feet of open cuts and  two tunnels, the extent of the deposit is in part known while more  than a score of assays have demonstrated the values. Tho ore carries over ������20 in gold and values in  arsenic of at least $J5 more, besides small values in silver. The  exceptionally favorable situation,  close to a base of supplies and to  competing railway and river routes  for transportation, make tho future  of the Aufeas Gold Mines Limited,  thc proprietary company, look very  bright.���������West Yale Review.
