This, as George Ade might remark is going isome.--Dr. Frank  Crane.  GREENWOOD, JULY 31, 1.913.  A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become, deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  Although marriage is a lottery  no parson has ever been arrested  for ilf-uling the game.  That aged comic journal, London Punch, has begun printing extracts from Greenwood's leading  excitement, which proves that its  editor knows a joke when he sees  one.  Tiik energetic   development   of  the mining industry in   Canada  is  of great importance   to   the entire  Dominion, and there is urgent  necessity in this connection   for   the  creation of an independent folio of  Mines with an   energetic   Minister  in charge.    This   is   au   affair   of  business more  than   politics,   and  the western people shonld   dig   in  and urge the   government   to   get  'busy and appoint a live man to the  position.  Lv New Denver thero   are some  horses that, can pick a Yale lock or  open a safe says the Record. Thats  inlitesimal.    Here,   in   Greenwood  wo have a bunch of hens trained to  lay eggs in our backyard, and  two  robins that sing   in   Latin;   while  just across the road a   gopher is at  work running a tunnel on the post  o/lice. site.    Up the   crook   a   few  miles from the   copper   metropolis  there is a bear that scares away the  fishermen, and then robs their bait  and lunch baskets.    Since the fishing became good the bear has been  drunk nearly all   the   time.  In B. C. for a long time the playing for money with dice, cards and  wheels has been prohibited, but the  selling of sub-division lots upon the  outskirts of prairie towns by glib-  tongued real estate peddlers has  been permitted to run wide open,  much to the detriment of poor investors. This game has drained  the province of vast sums of money  principally drawn from the pockets  of wage-earners, and it is high time  that the law should stop this shady  kind of business. Long ago The  Ledge pointed ont the evils of this  wild and foolish way of wasting  money; but thesimpleminded public  is slow to take advice. Efforts are  now being made in Fernie to avert  the evil, aud it is to be hoped that  other towns follow snit.  Thinking Themes  "Sem" in the Journal of Paris  gives us some interesting facts  about the origin nf the Tango, the  dance that is now the thing in  Now York, Paris, and all the fever  centres of society. From his article I gather the following information, which the devotees of tbe  Tango may find diverting:  Buenos Ayres, as every one  knows, is a Hiiperb and almost  brand new city, of which the  Argentines aro justly proud, Its  modern prosperity, however, is  still flecked by tho vestago of the  primitive town, a dirty quarter,  bearing tho pictnrcqiie title of  "Barrio de las ranas,"  or   "tho  composed of dives and brothels of  tho vilest order, and renal Is tho  "Rideck" of Antwerp, the. "Red  Hat" of Toulon, South Clark  street of Chicago, or the old Ninth  street region of Omaha.  What gives this part of tho city  its unique appearance is its aurpri.i-  iug architecture. The dance halls  and drinking resorts are constructed of fragments of coal oil cans and  preserved meat tins, displaying a  tinny splander, cr.t into festoons  and rosettes, giving the imprecision  of madman's palaces, their facades  adorned with varicolored signs of  "Standard Oil," "Armour's Beef,"  and "Azncar de Tneuman," all  shining in the fierce sunlight with  oil grease and molasses.  In the streets aro mountains of  garbage, dead fish and rubbish of  all kinds, swarming with rats and  vermin. Tho city for health's  sake, bnrnn this matter in open  in open fireB, so that tho air is fnll  of the most disgusting odors. It is  a spectacle truly Dantesque, tho  filthiest of habitations for the filthiest of humans, enlivened by tho  crashing music of mechanical  organs, a hideous fair ground of  wretchedness.  The population of the place is  composed of the dregs of Latin  Europe, most Italian, called in the  slang of Buoonos Ayres "compat-  ridos." With tho complexion of  bean soup, they slough along, tboir  hat brims pulled down over their  eyes, their white teeth gleaming  from under their pomaded moustache, their hair greasy and their  necks clean shaved���������as if for the  convenience of the hangman.  But the most striking thing  (bearing upon tho Tango) is their  walk and attitudes. With eyes  alert, watching the police or the  women, they glide about cautious,  elastic, as tigers in a cage, their  backs against the walls for protection against the envious knife, advancing obliquely, slyly, their legs,  pliant, as if ready to spring.  These are the creators of the  Tango, which is but tho dance development of their ateps, set to  rhythm. In the Tango, which  just now obsesses tho elite of both  worlds, are found all the unclean  gestures, the unchase contortions  and suggestive shrugs, all the  simian obscenity of these gentry.  The Tango is the "danso dn  ventre" for two, the professional  dance of the lupanars of Uruguay  and the Argentine.  Curious anomaly of civilization!  The   Tango   "do  las   ranas"   of  Buenos Ayres has captured tho topmost   society of Paris and New  York; gentlo ladies from the faul-  bourg Saint-Geimain and from tho  gingerbread places of Central Park  East aro enchanted with tho now  sonsation from tho  Siibura of  a  Soutli Amorican town.  Strange enigma! The Tango,  tho very name of which would  cause a domi-mondainn of tlie second class in Buoonos Ayres to  bliiBh. is received with open  arms  ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES  Within tho next few years hundreds of miles of railway in the  northwestern. United Slates will bo  operated by means of electric  locomotives. ' Already arrangements have been completed for  electrifying some '150 miles of the  Chicago, St. Paul and Pugut Sound  railway, and it is stated that tho  company has appropriated $7,.r>00,-  000 for the work.  The electric locomotive has already shown marked elUeieney on  the mountain railways. As a matter of fact,' tho limiii of capacity of  a number of Amorican lines lias  long been determined in large  measure by their ability to get  trains over some of the excessive  grades on thoir mountain sections.

Whore such grades pass  through tunnels the difficulty is increased, for the steam and smoke  from the locomotives coats tho  rails with a greasy snot, which  makes the wheel slip, and the.  heavy fumes from the coal and oil  fuel make operation a matter of  real danger to the train crews.  With the installation of electric  locomotives all the difficulties and  dangers arising from soot have,  been overcome and trains are hauled over these portions of the road  at double the best speed possible  for steam. The ]00-tnn electric  locomotive is suitable for the  heaviest railway traffic, and one  of them will "back" the heaviest  steam locomotive.  For    the    handling   of   freight  trains there are electric locomotives  tbat   weigh  ISO  tons  and   which  have a  traction  power of SO,000  pounds starting.    The motors  are  built  two sections, each of which  weigh ninety tons.    By placing together a pair of these  ninety-ton  electrics, both under the control of  one man, the  engineer  has under  control   .l/iOO   horse-power,  or   a  maixmum tractive force of 00,000  pounds.    One of the huge Mallet  steam locomotives weighs 239 tons  but of this weight only 107 tons is  on the drivers, and  the  engine is  therefore capable of only 71,000  pounds tractive effort.  The electric locomotive has undoubtedly proved its worth, and a  few- years will see them largely  used not only on the mountain  roads of tho United States but of  Canada as well. This constitutes  still another reason for the people  retaining control of hydro-electric  development.  Slocan and Poplar  Jt  has  been   reported  that tho  ledge has be<;n   discovered  on the  Wonderful, about half a mile from  Sandon  and  that   work  is   being  done in the  hopes  of locating the.  big ore body believed   to exist on  tho property.    The  reason for the  theory that a largo ore body  exists  on the claim lies  in  the. fact that  largo   quantities of   galena   float  were found thero several years ago.  This led to sluicing nn a considerable scale, the result being a hand-  some reward for the workers, ore  in  large quantities   and of  good  grade being found embedded in the  clay and loose gravol that blanketed  tho country rock.    Shipments  wero maintained for a considerable  period   and   tho    resumption   of  side of  tho   mountain.    The  property bore the  unique- distinction  of being the only silver-lend placer  mine in tho  world.    Although de-  tonninofl efforts were made to find  the. ore. in which the oro  came, all  work in that direction  has proved  unavailing up to the present time.  J. W.   Power  and JIughie  McKay, owners  of tho  Big Red Elo-  phant group on Trail creek, in tho  upper Duncan section, expected to  lie able, to ship ont a test car of ore  this fall, but  have  been  forced to  abandon the. scheme on  account of  niosquitos causing  a  cessation  of  work on the trail between Hoaley's  landing and Trail creek.    Tho work  cannot be finished   in  timo  to get  tho ore  down  this year,   so  the  owners intend to bring  down only  a small test shipment  of about 20  sacks,   which,   under the circumstances, is about the best they can  do.    Tho ore will   be. sent to the  laboratory of the State College  of  Mines,   at   Pullman,   Wash.,   for  testing,   in  order to seo just what  treatment is required to handle the  ore moat profitably.  A contract was entered into a  few days ago by Carlson & Co., of  Spokane, for the driving of approximately 1,700 feet of crosscut  tunnel at the Payne mine, near  Sandon, according to Manager W.  R. Zwicky, of the Slocan Payne  Co., who returned Saturday from a  visit to the property.  It is expected that the completion of this contract will see the  ledge crosscut by the long tunnel,  'which, already'has been underway  for over a year, as surveys indicate  that the ledge should be found  when tho 1,700 feet contracted for  has been driven.  The firm of Carlson & Co., contractors, is headed by G. A. Carlson, who built the K. & S. as a  narrow gauge line and who also  bdilt the C.P.R. branch from  Lardo to. Gerrard. Mr. Carlson  was at one time Mayor of Kaslo  and erected the A Avenue trestle  and excavated the big cutting on  thatntrcet in 1 SOS.

The new   process,    evolved  by  Frank M. Leland under the financial backing of Thomas  W.   Law-  son,  is   ono of smoke   prevention  rather than of smoke destroying. It  is proposed to desulpherize the ore  before it is fed to the furnace.    It  has been tried out at Anaconda  and has been found  to be satisfactory in the main.

Better Consult a Physician Before  Rushing Into Court.  There is food for thought iu the suggestion of Russell Duane, one of the  leaders of the Philadelphia bar, for a  short cut to the simplification of judicial procedure and the clearing of unimportant cases from the dockets of  the courts. Ills Idea is that most per-'  sons -who think they have a legal grievance should consult, a doctor, not a lawyer. In effect, he says that 00 per  cent of the cases brought into court are  the result of au unhealthy liver.  Mr. Dunne said that lawyers should  ndviso most of their clients to go to a  doctor before' going to court. Then  tliere would bo very little litigation. It  would be bettor for the public, probably, but not so good for the lawyers.  As a mutter of fact, however, lawyers nre tending more and more toward  settling cases out of court. In some  countries in the far east it Is the practice to pay doctors for keeping their  clients in good health. As soon as the  pnlient grows sick the doctor's pay  censes. It Is to his interest to hurry  the patient buck to health. The people  of tho United States have not yet reached that point, but they are Hearing it.  Corporations today no longer hire lawyers to got them out of trouble. Thoy  hire lawyers by the year to keep them  out, of trouble. The lawyers who now  receive the highest fees are those who  do not fight their buttles lu court, hut  who keep their clients out of court.  After awhile Individuals will try to  keep out of court, too. and will pay  bigger fees for prevention than for  cure. Probably It Is an exaggeration to  Bay that DO per cent of the litigants  should consult u doctor instead of a  lawyer, but it is certain thai most litigants need a doctor when they get the  lawyer's bill, anyhow, so they might ns  well consult the family physician in the  first place. If he Is a man of common  sense he will advise his patient to settle his grievances outside of court-  Washington Post.  ' MAYBE PLANTS CAM WINK."!  A Learned Botanic Expert Says Thoy  All Have Eyes.  After long.experimenting nud study  Professor Gottlieb Haberlandt of tho  Botanic institute of Gratz, in Styria,  declares that plants, the word taken  In its widest sense and Including trees,  can see.  The professor says thnt he hns succeeded through photography and the  use of the microscope in reproducing  the images reflected on tho visual organs of plants. The images included  objects at different distances and even  persons and houses. Plants may, he  says, be classed with the inferior animals in this respect. His observations  have been coniirmed by Dr. Nuttall  and Dr. Harold Wagner.  We are still so ignorant of animal,  plant and insect life (because we do  not understand their language) thnt we  fancy the plant, like the insect, ls not  conscious of what it sees, but that Is  probably a discovery for the future.  At present we are forced to accept the  theory that they nre not conscious.  iiut that they do see Professor Haberlandt says he has satisfactorily  proved. He has found the sume minute eye such as belongs to bees und  other Insects lu sycamore leaves, in  the sugnr ninple and In the Peruvian  acanthus. The eyes of .plants appear  different from the eyes of insects In  that they have no coloring matter,  though this is uot yet determined.  The profossor Is continuing his experiments, nnd he expects to make further interesting nnd surprising announcements. He says that the fact  that plants and trees have eyes ls undoubtedly a proof that all natural life  is linked in one long chain.���������Chicago  Tribune.

A daring scheme Is proposed in Russia for altering the flow of waters on  so vast a scale that even meteorological and climatic conditions may be  improved. Agricultural Interests in the  eastern and southern provinces suffer  severely from the frequent droughts,  which are ascribed partly to extensive  deforestation nnd partly to the progressive drying up of western Asia.  The idea has been conceived of diverting thc flow of certain Siberian  rivers from the north to the south so  that their waters would eventually  find their way into those great inland  seas, the Dral and the Caspian. As  the surface of these would be thereby  doubled or even quadrupled, there  would be a great increase in the atmospheric moisture and consequent  precipitation of the surrounding country, as well as larger available supplies for irrigation where desirable.  This diversion of flow is to be accomplished by building dams across  tlie Obi and Tobol rivers at points  where their banks are exceptionally  high. When the water would reach  the top of the banks it would stand at  a far higher level than the Caspian,  and considerably above the Oral. It  would then only be necessary to cut  a short canal through the divide which  separates the northern flowing from  the southern flowing rivers of western Asia to direct the fructifying waters of these mighty streams toward  the two great lakes Instead of allowing them to be lost In the Arctic ocean.

This  pigment has now been obtained In a  pure crystalline state, so that its chemical composition may be determined  as well as its peculiar properties. The  yellow belongs to the same class of  pigments as the green of leaves���������xan-  thophyl. In plants and In animals Willstater has found two distinct series of  pigments. In one of these series the  substances are soluble in benzine and  consist of carbon and hydrogen. The  yellow of the carrot is a good example  of this class of pigments. In the other  series each molecule contains In addition two atoms of oxygen. These pigments are soluble in alcohol.

Two parts novelty and one part  danger is the formula that makes  many sports attractive. Combine this  with the fact that the railroad toboggan is a great labor saving device and  one can readily understand why tobogganing down the cog railway  which climbs Pike's peak, Colorado, Is  so fascinating, says the Popular Mechanics Magazine. To make a drop of  nearly a mile and a half In a distance  of nine miles of track, sometimes at a  speed of two miles a minute, Is the  reason why the railway toboggan has  come Into use, for the employees find it  far more exhilarating to slide down  the mountain than go on foot  I IN GRAND FORKS  I deal in Second-hand  goods and have the  largest sign in B.

This in formation   was  partly  corroborated    by    General   Manager  Wright upon his arrival  here, but  ho added that the  drill  only penetrated    a small   chuck   hole,  in  which there was a small amount  of oil of  seemingly good quaiity.  It  was  not a    "gusher"   by  any  means,, but it is considered a good  indication  of an oil field  aud Mr.  Wright  believes   that it will   be  found   not  very   far  below.    His  Company, however,   is boring for  coal, but a strike of oil  would , be  just as acceptable, if not  more so.  ���������Masset Leader.  is being developed. The coal  mines aro becoming sources of great  revenue, tho copper mines are shipping daily hundreds of tons of ore,  quartz properties are beginning to  yield their contributions, agriculture has developed into an industry  and now stock raising is coming to  bo a factor in the territory.���������Vancouver Sun.  Dawson���������Every day for six  mont lis of the year old Dawson  sends out on the average more than  $14,000 daily, in pure gold.  People who have been going to  coast, and to Eastern citieB, and  circulating stories to the effect  Dawson is dead, should revolve the  In the prospective stage wo Iind  men like Bariaus and Morris, who  in the summer of 1S89 crossed the  valley below Itossland from the  Lily May, and staked the Lo Roi  Centre Star, War Eagle, Idaho and  Virginia. Thoy gave Colonel E. S.  Topping tho Lo Roi for tho sum of  $12.50 which thoy used to pay the  recording foes for tho claims. The  Le Roi has since produced ovor  twenty millions of dollars, and was  onco sold to tho British America  Corporation for 83.500,000. During the earlier days of the camp,  before tho real production was well  under way, every iron capping was  supposed to have hidden under its  surface a valuable mine, and bare  prospects, often staked on the snow,  where there might be only a miserable showing of mineral, brought  large sumB. Anything almost that  could be pegged was sold readily  for whatever price almost that the  imagination of the owner could put  on it. Capitalists and mining men,  business men and adventurers,  male and female, men with money  aud without it, flocked here from  all portions of the earth, and there  ensued a boom which lasted from  1S94 until about the end of 1S97  which beggars description. Hundreds of mining companies were  formed, and hardly any of them  with a capital stock of less than  a  forgoing fact in their minds.    Take million dollars.    These stockB were  the. government figures, based on  royalty returns, and add the quarter million dollars from the American Yukon, all within a radius of  300 miles of Dawson, and the total  yield of this marvellous centre  must astonish not only the world,  but even the people who live within  the city of Dawson, and inside this  golden circle.  Other gold camps far and near  will have to sit up and take off  their hats to old Klondike. Certain states and provinces outside  will show large returns for a year  l)ti t they cover vast areas, as compared with this marvellous old  Klondike area, measured within a  radius of 100 miles of Dawson.  And the best of it is that the Klondike yield will continue to enlarge,  and the placer output will not  cease for a quarter of a century,  and perhaps not for twice that time.  Klondike is not large, frothy and  bizarre, as in the early days���������wine  women, cards, and all the accessories of the frontier camp are not  here. A new era exists. Instead  of the riotousness. with everyone  facing new conditions daily, with  empty poke now, and a streak of  luck then. Dawson now is on a substantial basis.  The old shells of buildings which  the .early stampeders   left behind,  many as useless to this town as ten  tails to a dog,  aro standing,  and  not needed.    They give tho wrong  impression to tho visitor,  and are  responsible for much of  the wrong  impression about tho town.    Were  all superfluous buildings removed,  and only those now in. use inspected, it would bo found  that every  homo is far more comfortable,  and  every store and hotel   and   public  building equipped far  beyond the  dreams of the first flush days.  Where wood was burned recklessly in groat stoves thon, now  plastically all prominent hotels and  stores havo steam, and, hotels are  equipped  with everything   to the  speculated  in  largely iu Spokane,  Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver aud  Ottawa.    Rosslaud had   its stock  exchange with regular daily meetings,    and   thousands   of   shares  changed hands on the  floor of the  board.     It   was   so   ambitious   a  body that at one period  in its career a stock  exchange daily  paper  was issued,  containing quotations  of the day  as well  as tho latest  mining tips.    Brokers wero very  numerous  in  tho Golden  City at  that time, some occupying expensive offices on  Columbia avenue,  while others of less pretension did  business   upstairs    in    tho   same  buildings or had smaller offices in  the less frequented streets.   The  quotations from tho exchange were  telegraphed to the leading financial  centres of eastern Canada each day  and to Spokane,   and many orders  were   received   by   the Rossland  brokers to purchase shares of the  mines that happened to   have the  vogue on any particular occasion.  One firm iu particular, the Reddin-  Jackson Co.,  did  much  business,  and the market  was manipulated  the same as it is in New York,  Toronto   or  Ottawa,    only on a  smaller scale,  and very considerable sums wore lost and  won by  the fluctuations of tho share market.   Finally   the   share 'market  had its Black Friday along in 189S  and the market collapsed, and the  unfortunate speculators wore left,  often with a million or half a million shares on their hands,   for the  most of which there has not been  a good market to this day.   The  fortunate ones, however,  in many  instances, were those who sold out  or were so lucky as to have shares  in the leading or producing mines.  To show the magnitude of the  operations in  the acquisition and  development   of   properties,    the  Gooderham   Blackstock syndicate  invested about   83,000.00  in   the  purchase and development of the  War    Eagle    and    Centre    Star  ates.  "Wo would like to buy the  Maho,'' Haid Mr. Blackstock.  "The, Idaho is not for sale/'.''  emphatically replied Mr. Durant.  "Name a price for it," said Mr.  Blackstock, in a persuasives way.  "Didn't 1 tell you that it was  not for sale. You have not enough  tnonoy to buy it," thundered Mr.  Durant.  The Hritisli American Corporation, one of Whitakcr Wright's  dotations, expended about So,-  000,000 in the acquisition of Hi ss-  land properties, the most costly of  which was the Le lioi, which cost  thorn in the neighborhood of $3,-  500,000. This mine has produced  something over .320,000,000.  To show tlie utter disi'egnrd of  the value of money that then pro-  vailed, the following incident is  typical: John M.' Burke and a  friend had put through a deal for  a claim, and the joint commission  was about 82,000. "This stun,"  said Mr. Burke, "is too small to  divide as there is not more than  enough of it to have a night's fun.  I'll match you to see who takes it  all."  Burke matched with his 'friend  and lost saying "Well, I won't  havo tho pleasure of spending it tonight, and I hope you will have  ������4,000 worth of fun out of it."  Those who had faith in the future of the camp remained with it,  and the production has gone on  steadily and energetically until  over "355,000,000 has been extracted from the bowels of the earth.
