The performance of tha*- horsey  farce,  -Dandy   Dick,    by   local  amateurs last week was an artistic  and   financial rsuccess.

MANY COMING  Ottawa,���������Undismayed by reports of unfavorable transportation  conditions in the west, and uninfluenced by Champ Clark's organized efforts to stem the flow of  Americans across the border, the  rush of immigrants to Canada this  season promises to oxceed the highest record in former years. That  the population of Canada will be  increased    by    400,000   desirable  '  citizens before tho end of the present immigration year is the opinion  of Commissioner Scott of Dominion  immigration.  It is noted that whereas there is  no abatement expected in the movement from tho north and western  states, from which Canada in recent years has received so many  desireable settlers, and so much  wealth in horses, implements, and  hard cash, several new states will  send their quota of settlers. ��������� From  the states of Nebraska, Missouri,  and from other states to tho south,  many are this year expected.

TnE man who complains the  most in an hotel is the man who  has the least, at home.  TnE investigation over the wreck  of the Titanic proves that all the  liars do not live on dry land.  and miserable.    Make men healthy  and  they as a rule will be good,*  and the ball ground is always better ventilated than any church in  the land.    Pure air and reasonable  outdoor exercise upon  any day of  the week, coupled with loud  and  merry laughter  will  do more to  elevate tho soul   and  purify the  body  than almost   anything  else.  Some people think they are . religious when they are only suffering from  a rush  of bile to   the  upper   etopo.    caused   by   wrong  thinking and  wrong eating.    The  sick are nearly always scoundrels  and  havo distorted   visions in regard  to how others   should  conduct themselves.    The cranky liver sees devils at every turn of the  road, and is largely responsible for  the religions' persecutions of   the  pa6t and present.

Ik Mexico does not behave,  Uncle Sam is liable to put that  land of red pepper, under the shade  of the starry flag.  Thinking Themes  The one word I should like to  rub out of the vocabulary used by  human beings one toward another  is the word "Don't".  Looking back over a somewhat  full and varied experience, I can  say that iu my judgement didactic  prohibition issued from soul to soul,  TnE greed of man  makes him  sick.    If you have an appetite do'for eve-T ounce of g������������d *������* u&a done  not eat too much.    If you havo no  appetite do not eat at all.  "We hear that New York has  borrowed $05,000,000 at 4A per  cent. We will take tho same  amount at five per cent.  Oxe death in every eight in Canada is caused by the white plague.  Of all tho deaths in the Dominion  between the ages of 25 and 35  years, nearly one half are caused  by consumption. It is about time  Canadians learned the value of  pure air and took it in larger doses.  The judges of New Denver must  be easy on sinners for tho Slocan  Eecord remarks, that if tho magistrates are going to pot criminals,  the provincial police are wasting a  lot of energy in attempting to protect the public. If the Slocan is to  be made a paradise for thugs, the  citizens should invest in guns and  hemp.  "We notice that a man in Kaslo,  ***-'..- '  who got religion late in life, is trying to have the attorney general  stop Sunday baseball in that city.  It was ever thus.   Some sincere individuals with tho meddlers itch,  filled with false ideas about God  and   religion are  over  trying to  rough-lock the innocent  pleasures  and   recreations   of  others.   All  days aro alike to God, and it is  has made a pound of harm.  -���������Don't" is the stupidest, most  brainless, and laziest of all parental  terms. To tell a child what to Do,  requires thought, investigation, interest. To tell any one what Not  to do requires nothing in the way  of cerebration or effort.  ������������������Don't means chopping down  the tree: -'Do" means training it,  tying it up, bracing it.  '���������Don't," is the language of  annoyance, "Do" is the language  of Love.  "I like very well to be told what  todo,by thoso who are fond of mo."  said Alchibiades; "but never to be  told what not to do; and tho more  fond tney aro of mo tho less I like  it.    Because when   they tell   me  what not to do, it is a sign that I  have displeased,  or am likely to  displease   them.     Besides���������I  believe there are some other reasons,  but they have quite escaped me."  ��������� To be sure tho Ten  Commandments are "Don't."   But they are  God's   which is different.    God's  color is green, too; but that is no  reason a woman ought to wear it  ���������Dr. Frank Crane.  who are engaged in rounding up  the herd will be successful in catching more than this number. There  are now 990 buffalo on tho Wainwright range, and the number is  increasing rapidly, there having  beon 170 calves last year. It is expected that this year there will bo  about 250 calves.  Mr. Ellis states that a profitable  industry might be evolved from tho  buffalo farm because of tho value  of the heads and hides.    The old  cows and bulls might; be killed off  each year for   their   hides.    The  cost of feeding them is very small.  During the summer they are out  on the range,  and even   in   the  winter they are able to graze and  obtain  sufficient   nourishment to  keep thorn in good condition: This  winter only GOO tons of hay  havo  been required.    This hay is grown  on tho farm in connection with ths  range, aud about 1,200 tons of hay  wore put up last year so that GOO  tons will be carried over this year.  Tho range is one hundred thousand acres in extent and tho buffalo  roam this tract during the summer,  but in the winter they are confined  to the winter quarter,   which are  about  twelve sections in extent.  The animals browse on this tract  and  their  feed  is carried out   to  them    ou  hay   racks.    Mr.   Ellis  stated  that some of the cows are  becoming very fierce and it will be  necessary to shoot them in all probability.    They have   charged  the  herders several   times   and  there  have been  a   number of   narrow  escapes.    None of the animals have  charged the teams on tho hay racks  as yet, but it is feared  that they  will do so some day.    The bulls,  however,   seem to   be much more  quiet than the cows as they havo  not given auy trouble as yet,  There is a large herd of buffalo  in the country north of Fort Chipe-  wyan and it is probable that some  of theso animals will be brought  down to "Wainwright to put now  blood into the herd there.  Thero are a number of moose,  elk, antelope and deer at tho range  now, it being the government's intention to use this place as a stock  farm for all tho Dominion parks.  Animals, which are native to this  countVy, will be bred there and  used to stock tho. parks all over the  has intelligence enough to let him  know what i3 required. Some men  for instance, when they want to  lead a horse forward, turn toward  him and stare him in the face. He  of course, thinks thoy are barring  his way, and ho stands still. If  they would turn their back to him  and move on he would naturally  follow. I ,am looking forward  longingly to the time when we can  end this war, and I can settle down  on my St. Louis farm and raise  horses.

They  talk of the bullwarks in danger,  they  say tho escutcheons are canned. -  -'Your vote," they declare  to me, "stranger, may  rescue this  perishing land." ' They talk and  they  boom  and they boiler, they  yawp till each larynx is skinned,  but labor means coal in the cellar j  and argument's nothing but wind.  I go to the village with butter, and  eggs that my fat hens have laid;  and statesmen- como to me   and  mutter:    "The outlook sure makes  me afraid!   I foar that the eagle is  molting!   The star-spangled   banner's in hock!   This country is in  for a jolting  unless people list to  my talk!"    I shake off the longdistance clacker, who long with his  jawbone    and   sinned;   for   labor  means grub and tobacker and arguments nothing but wind.���������Walt  Mason.

That is his present phase: to thosq  ���������who know the man, the fact that hq  la busy with this subject now, in it.  self is sufficient evidence that he was  not busy with It two years ago, and  will not be busy with it two year?  hence. Not that he Is volatile; not  that he 'looks perseverance; but thh*  ��������� that he is a man at once dowered  with a singular gift for observation  and organization, and possessed with  a fierce restless energy. He is a  beginner, not an administrator. Cani  ada is strewed with prosperous Ini  Btitutlona which ho started, and which  he loft for others to carry on.  Consider hds career for a moment;  for part of tho significance of what is  to follow depends on that career. In  the beginning this serlous-faoed'  young Scot, with a North British burr  on his tongue and a gift of speech  which could talk a bird off a bush;  managed a cheese factory; two ori  three chese factories in fact, with a  famous brand of his own.. His family  business had led him into that. His  explosive energy and gift for expressing hiB ideas drew attention, and the!  early eighties saw him acquired by  tho . Quelph Agricultural College as  professor in dairying. Soon Quelph  was too Bma.ll to hold him, and in  the early nineties, somewhHe before)  the Conservative Administration went]  out of office, he was taken possession  of by the Dominion Department of  Agriculture.  By William Jones  (Copyright by-Publishers Press Ltd.)  The family always had decided  things for Penelope Bushnell. In the  first place there was only one of her  against innumerable quantities of  family, and 'in more ways than one  might often makes right. '  When she was 'a young'girl"Penelope was round faced, apple cheeked  and   of   the   dumpling 'variety,   and  everybody in town then spoke of her  as a pretty young woman. She looked  the   type   to   amble  on   through  life  with only*the usual, ordinary things  happening to her, but fate got mixed,  for the young man to whom she had  became   engaged    as    a   matter   of  course, after going with him through  high school, was drowned one sunny  June   morning   when   he   and   the  crowd" were in swimming under the  railroad bridge up the'river.  ' Penelope went around after Luke's  death as heartbroken and tragic as an  apple cheeked girl could be, but secretly she was scandalized to find how  soon she began fo take an interest in  fall fashions and what her mother was  going to have for dessert. It did not  seem decent somehow when her IKe  had beon blighted at its very star., in  reality   it   had   merely   been   fancy  which had made Luke and her think  they were each other's fates. 'A very  sweet,  girlish  affection  she had for  him, but love was undreamed of by  Penelope.   It took Ford Drummond to  teach hor that, and the family opposed Ford from the very first. '  ,   The Drummonds had como to town  c-niy a few years before and calmly  overrode so many of the current'prejudices that people eaid they were odd  and disapproved of them.   As to Ford  Drummond, he would not settle d���������wn  to work.  Nevertheless, he easily was the most  attractive young man in town. Penelope's family were very set in the!-*  ideas, and ono among them was that  every man should earn his own living  and stand on his .own feet, instead  of living on'his father as Ford Drummond did. He made a few essays in  business, but always quit in a shorf  tim*, saying he did not like what h������  was doing.  "He's shiftless and lazy," Penelope's  father said violently soon after Ford  Drummond began dropping in to sea  Penelope frequently. "I'm not going  to have a daughter of mine throw herself away on a good looking scramp  like him. I'm going to save you from  making a goose of yourself, Penelope.  When you get married you pick* out  some steady man who isn't afraid to  work and who can take care of you."  At first Penelope plucked up enough courage to argue back, spurred  on by. the strange new happiness  which was flooding her very soul, and  then her joy became streaked with  misery. But even she 'could see tha*-  Ford hid no future before him.  "I wish I could believe in you," she  told him piteously. "You did not keep  your word to me that you would stick  it out in the abstract office. It's been  the same with everything you've tried  for two years. Maybe father's right"  He had looked at he"r bitterly and  then softened. "I guess I'm no good,  P.en," he said. "I can't seem to fit in.  Things don't appeal to me. But, soma*,  how, I feel I'll do things when &e  right chance comes along."  Ford had gone away then and PraiB-  lope had cried herself sick helplessly.  Bhe loved him even' though she could  not approve of him arid his constant  failure hurt. He drifted out of the  town's memory In time.  Penelope never went with any one  else and in a few years was one of  the accepted, permanent spinsters of  the place.    It did not seem possible  she   ever  had   been   connected   with  romaace or tragedy.    She was over  forty   when * Ford   Drummond   came  back to  town  and registered  at the  best hotel.    The  local  editor,  being  new, did not remember' the name as  that of a former resident, and judging  merely by the stranger's clothes and  general   air,   noted   that   "Mr.   Ford  Drummond,   a  prosperous  citizen  of  Nevada,   is   stopping   at   the   Park  House."    Penelope   held   the   paper  Btiffly  for   a   long  while   after   she  had read the item, resurrecting with  painful   labor  the  past.    When   she  and- Ford   met   at   a   social   shortly  afterward  they  regarded  each  other  with a kind of wonder, not at rhpir  changed physical aspects, but at their  mutual consciousness of a living past  In which they had cared for one another.    Both of them were strangely  destitute of words that night, but the  next evening Ford Drummond  came  down   the   street  under   the   maples  toward her home, and she knew his  step before she saw him."  How many  times, years ago, had she sat .like this  In the dusk waiting for him!    They  Bat long in the shadow of the vines  talking as people do when  they are  on the downward slope.   He told hor  all  that had  come  to  him,  slipping  back through the years till he pa.ised  at the boy she had known,  remembering.  "You see, I was right after p,ll," he  Bald. "I wasn't built for petty mer-  chanting or dry clerical work. I  flidn't care what became of me when  you went back on me, Pen, at first.  Then I got angry to think yo.u didn't  believe in me and I resolved Ho succeed. The miriute I hit 'that mining  region It was like a new world and I  ���������struck my gait. I made good���������so good  that I was too busy for years to think  of anything in the past. Then when  I did I concluded you had, of course,  married some one else. And then of  late I wanted to see you so bad that  I camo back anyhow. Will you go  back West with me?"  Penelope Bushnell was crying and  somehow the tears made her face  seem younger. "How can you want  me," she asked, "when I didn't rave  any faith in you then?"  "There wasn't anything to fcRvr.  faith in then," the man .'told:, he*'  gravely. "I'd never amounted tr ������  row of pins if you hadn't cast me out  and hurt my pride. You've mad? me  what I am and I've never cared for  anyone else, Pen. We're going to  grow old soon and it seems to me the  rest of our days might be happy. Will  Jrou marry me?"

Companies  were formed and stock sold, claims  and groups were bought; mines,  and especially Steamboat mines  were very popular with Vancouver  investors. During the winter of  1911 the whole province waited for  what tho spring would reveal.  In February bhe coal supply at  the Steamboat Mines was exhausted  and work was suspended. Stephens  and Greonvvalt went south. Spring  arrived and thoy did not return;  thoy had not left addresses with  their   associates   in    Vancouver.

MINING NEWS   |  OOO^KJOOO<K><>OOCK>0<><KH>00<KH>0  During the past few months the  smelter atMarysville has been dismantled. Some of the machinery  has been shipped to Trail, and the  balance to tho Sullivan mine.  The next chapter is tho strange  ptory of the' Steamboat Mountain  boom. Tho mountain has been  examined frequently by mining  engineers and experts with experience in all parts of the world  and by men who have spent their  lives as practical miners west of  the "Rockies. Hardly any two  agree as to what was done or what  can be done.  In July, 1910, W. A. Stephens  and D. Green wait located three  claims on Steamboat Mountain and  encouraged people in Hope to follow their example. They then exhibited in Vancouver specimens of  ore alleged to bo taken from their  find. The specimens assayed very  high. They formed a company in  Vancouver and secured the services as fiscal agents of one of the'  oldest financial firms in the city  and the stock Bteadily rose. A  tunnel was begun on the property  and favorable reports were sent in  regularly to the company's offices.  From August of 1910 until snow  lay deep in the valleys there was a  convinced what was left of tho  company that it was impossible  that the rich samples had come  from there���������in short, that the mine  had beon ���������'salted." Stephens has  since committed suicide. Green-  wait is favoring South America  with his activity. The company  is still in existence but it is unlikely that the property will bo  operated this year or next.  However, if tho first company  was a failure and a disappointment, its brief career was responsible for the prospecting of an immense area, not all of it in vain.  There are five districts between  Hope and the Americau boundary  which have shown distinct promise  and in wuich actual mining work  will be done this year.���������W.tY.  Review.  Many mineral claims have" been  staked'during the past few months  around Green City, and it is expected there will be an inrush of  prospectors shortly for the purpose  of doing assessment work and development work on the properties  that have been taken up. There  is a large area of ground bearing  mineral  adjacent to Green  City,  Salmo, Ymir and* Nelson havo  their eyes on Green City aud say  that they expect it will boom in  the near future, as it has all that  is necessary for the making of a  largo and thriving town.  The Arlington Company is  carrying on operations steadily and  has a force of men getting the road  between the mines and Erie in  shape, as a preparation for the resumption of shipping at an early  date.  The Mother Lode will"start up  their largo mill on May 1st, which  will cost $250,000. and which will  furnish employment for 100 men.  Tho reports from the mines of  Sheep Creek generally are of an  encouraging character, and the  Sheep Creek district promises to bo  the theatre of much activity during  the next several months.

The Second Refief  mine is carrying on its operations  steadily under the   directions   of  Mr.   Ross   of   Salmo.    Mr.   Ross  owns tho telephone system at Salmo, which he expects to extend to  tho Second  Relief mine, through  Green City.    Another branch of  this system is to be constructed up  tho west fork of the north fork of  the Salmon river, through a heavily timbered region; also  up  the  east fork of tho north fork of  the  Salmon river.    The lino will  give  Green City direct communication  with Nelson, Spokane, Vancouver  and other points, which will bo a  great convenience to the residents,  as it is anticipated that there  will  will be quite a rush to Green City  this summer and fall.

I HCAt.8 THE THHOAT AND LUNQ8. 28 CENTS '  LETTERS TO EDITOR  TO THE EDITOR OF THE I.EDGE.  DearSir:  fast Thursday it was my privilege  to be present at the performance of Dandy  Dick at the Auditorium, presented by a  company of local amateurs. The house  was well filled and the play greatly appreciated.  As.one who usually regularly attends  the theatre, may I be permitted  to say  that the performance of the amateurs was  equal to anything that has been shown  here for some time, and I hope that now  the ice has been broken, that it will not  be the last time that the same performers  provide us with such an enjoyable evening.   "Each member of the company did  justice to the part they held, and, without being what you may call brilliant,  they put such life and vim into their task  that one could not do any other than  appreciate their efforts.  . Seeing  as how travelling companies  fight shy of Greenwood, I think the time  is opportune for the formation of an amateur dramatic  association   right  here.  There certainly is no paucity of talent,  and,   I  believe,   that if the thing was  properly  organized  and  conducted,   it  could be made a success for the following  reasons:   Because there is a desire on the  part of the residents of the  city and  neighborhood for such evening's entertainment, as v/as shown by the size of the  audience, and because, by having a local  association the money can be kept .at  home and used for useful purposes after  all expenses arc deducted.
