It is' particularly  useful in Western homes. The information it gives to the new  settlers, and old settlers as well, is  worth hundreds of thousands of  dollars a year. It is simply marvelous the amount of good Instructive matter that paper contains  each week. It well deserves its  success. One dollar cannot be  better invested in Western homes  than by ordering that great paper.  A beautiful premium picture entitled "Home Again"  is also in  cluded,  and  dollar alone.  it is well worth the  NEWS FROM OTTAWA  Major Leonard, the new chairman of the Transcontinental railway .Commission looks^and .acts  like a man who knew his business  and proposed to transact it without  any foolishness or waste of time.  J He was the first man an the. Com-\  missioner's   offices" in   the   Corry  Block on Thursday morning.    He'  fcund his office much overheated  and  accordingly    threw   up    the  windows.    He    called    in   Chief  Engineer Grant and proceeded, to  learn all he knew about the bigrail-  way.    Then he attended the noonday Board meeting,  met Jhis colleagues and without waiting   for  lunch closeted himself again   with  the Chief Engineer.  "Pretty active man?" said a  caller to one of the messengers.  "Active?" I should say he is.  At the rate that man is going he  will have the road finished two  years ahead of time and we will all  be ont of our jobs."  Major Leonard .with a private income of $50,000 a. month is not  anxious to hold on to his job under  the government for the sake of $10,-  000 a year but he has undertaken  to do a big work this country needs  done badly and it is going to be  done right.  No greater contrast conld be imaged than tho one presented by the  new Chairman and his predecessor,  Hon. S. N.  Parent,  is the mau of  administrative ability but is first  and last a politican.    Rather short  of stature,  easy going and good  natured Mr. Parent of course had  no technical knowledge of railway  construction  and lot things move  on much as they happened to arrange themselvos.    Major Leonard  is a soldier and an engineer; a tall  man who speaks crisply and comes  to his work  with knowledge and  authority.   If Hon. Frank Cochrane continues to pick out men like  the now Chairman ho will bo entitled to a good deal more from  this country than this countr will  ever bo likely to pay him.  One way to, loso a friend is to  have him get rich while yon remain poor.  -,rf THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA*.  THE  LEDGE  Is located at Greenwood, B. C, and can be traced to many partR of  the 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 the mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; arid 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  the comity of Bruce. To the United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.  R.  T.  LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  handed out at 30c to 35c per pound.

Letters from Jane Ann  By Moore Ankincs-  My Own Deakkst Bebt,���������I  don't know who it is, angel, but  someone seems to on joy lugging us  apart. I don,t see how we're to  get together in family life, darling,  not with mo here and you,' at  Tottenham.  Seems to me, pet, we're worse off  than a couple of boxing men struggling for the championship, 'cause  they do enjoy each other's company  when they like and as,long as they  like, if its only in the newspapers.  I s'pose as the tract person says,  Everything is for the best, though  you don't seem to reelise it in this  outlandish part, with uo living  pickshers, no fried IUh, no whoop-  la, nothing only fresh air and food  for the mind.

Then he asked what father's  occupation was, so I told him father  was an organist before we planted  him. Of course, dear, I didn't  tell him father's organ Had wheels.

Fool Knowledge  We know so much that doesn't  count! We load up with a vast  amount of Juseless junk���������of Latin,  Greek and tongues the dead ones  used to speak.

Department,   pay   its   bills   more  prompt!}* than has been the custom  in the past.  Last Sunday in ��������� Spokane a  preacher said that he had seen hell.  Perhaps he once had a touch of the  snakes, or he may have tried at  some distant date to run a store  without advertising..  At present there are no preach,  ers or poker games in Greenwood.  With its dry champagne climate  added to the above condition it is  little wonder that this city resembles a blood relation of Paradise.  There is a place in Texas that  is 150 miles above sea level says  the Hedley Gazette. That is high  enough to be in the foothills of  heaven, although as a rule the inhabitants of Texas are not extremely ethereal.  Thinking Themes  Just plain ordinary,  every day  politeness is about the most pleasing thing a human being can have  to offer.    It sweetens tho air.   It  cheers tho heart.    It feels good.  It is good.   It doesn't cost a cent,  and it will  accomplish more in a  minute than money and curses can  get done in a month.    The average  American employee who deals with  the public is distinctly disagreeable.  Street car conductors are insolently  deaf.    Bank clerks are contemptuously  brusque.    Telephone girls  are snappy.    And dry goods "sales  ladies" are snippy.    Waiters take  your orders when they please, bring,  your food when  they get ready,  and they go away; and if you need  another fork you may get up and  get it yourself.  A waiter in a New York restaurant took a meek looking old gentleman's order for a beefsteak and  then departed and remained somewhere in tho dim|distance for a long  time. By and by he came to the  old gentleman, who had been sitting patiently with his hands folded.  "How would you like your steak,  sir?" asked the waiter.  The old, gentleman looked op,  collecting his   thoughts,  and   re-  Cheese, costing 14Jc to 15ic at  Montreal, adding 2Jc rate to our  B. C. market, is almost prohibitive  for ordinary salaried people. Butter, costing 29c to 30c laid here in  car lots, means at least before it  reaches the consumer 35c or 40c,  having to take in consideration the  fact that much of it is reshipped on  a local rate to other points, adding  further cost thereto.  Smoked Meats. Hams at 17������c  to 18ic, Extra [Brands at 19c to  20c, Bacon 17c to 24c, according to  cuft.and cure, make it cost to the  consumer more by several cents  than these wholesale figures show.  The query arises, what is the  trouble, are we not producing these  staples in sufficient large quantities  to supply the increasing demand,  and if not, why not? That is the  pertinent question now, and to our  mind it should bo one of the first  thing3 to demand attention from  Mr. Burrell, our newly-appointed  Minister of Agriculture. If it is a  shortage of production then he  should have a remedy by inducing  the farmers to increase their outputs; if it is found that the farmers  are not receiving the full benefit  of these exorbitant prices, then then  the blame should be placed at the  doors of those who are responsible.  We might go further and refer  to the Fresh Meat business, especially in B. C, and more especially  in the Interior, where two firms  control the market.  This fresh meat question is the  greatest holdup of all. Take tbe  price these firms pay for cattle in  the fall to the rancher and the  difference in the cost to the consumer. The cattle are slaughtered  by "thousands, placed in storage,  and the people live on frozen meat  from December to July, and then  it is a very difficult matter to get a  piece of fresh meat even in July;  and during the latter months, May  and June, this chemical storage  food stuff is in many instances not  in the best of condition for human  consumption. Beef, mutton, pork  aud veal during these months cost  at least 25c per pound, that is if  you wish a cut ab all eatable; and  the same thing applies to turkeys  and all kinds of fowl,'  these are  it's that lively. There's ODe pub  in the village but the landlord  never expect3 anybody to call -so  he's seldom at homo. He's a bit  deaf, too, so by the time he finds a  clean bucket and thoroughly understand what it is,that's ordered, his  customers travel on, Iu the hot  weather a' van comes round and  takes 'em to the fever hospital.  The landlord gets a pound a year  for the use of his horse, that's what  makes him so independent.  I don't reckon to know much  about shaving, don't believe in it,  but I remember father being a  shorn lamb once a .fortnight. I  used to get' the toffee or balloon, or  whatever the barber person happened to be circu-lating to bring trade.  Here the men go once in three  weeks on a Saturday night, there  being plenty of hot water then on  account of the barber's wife washing the youngsters. The barber  only hasOone razor and sometimes  he forgets the date and lends it to  the vicar. Then the proceshun  rubs its chin, bays Everything's for  the best and goes home to read  Cheerful Stories of Sudden Death  by the author of Better Days .in  Store, or Pig-keeping for ' Ama-  choors in the parish maggazeen. .  Hair-cutting comes under . the  head of out-door relief, and is performed by the travelling agent of  the Board of Agriculchur. Every  time there's a case of swine fever,  the Gov'nment send an expert and  the people dance on the village  green and get their hair cut and  put the compensation money in the  bank for a rainy day.  And the post-offis, ducky, you  ought to see the post-offis. Letters  have to be shoved through a broken  window in the front garden. After  eight o'clock at night the person in  charge puts a shutter across the  hole and goes to bed. I generally  go round to the back and shove  mine through some othor window  if they happen to be important.  So you see what I mean, dear,  it's not like being at home.  Lord Dumchuck met me out by  myself the other morning. Nearly  raised his hat to me and asked no  end of questions. I hope, dear,  you won't be jellus. I'm still  yours. How it came to happen  was like this. When I went to get  baby from the person who's on  night-duty, the housekeeper said,  I'm afraid baby can't be taken out  this morning, Jane, tho darling's  got the "thrush.  So I said Well, ma'am, I dou't  see how baby could get the thrush  and her only six weeks old come  Friday. She ain't big enough yet  to reach the cage.  When I told his lordship he said  That's dashed funny, and then he  laughed out just like you or I  might. Not a bit of pride. Laughed just like anybody might if they  felt that was inclined.  After that he said I s'pose, Jane,  you have a bow. So I said Yes  your lordship, buttons too, lots of  'em, hookB and oyes as well. /  That seemed to make him change  the subject, so he asked if I had a  young man and was I fond of dogs  and other animals.  Somehow your name got mentioned, Bert, and hjs lordship  wanted to know if you went in for  sport and if you were a likely lad  and quick with your hands.

Otto was' first to go up into, the  raise when he noticed at once  that the smoke was bad and turned  on the' compressed air and started  to climb down again but on reaching the bottom he was overcome.  His companion evidently had got  the whole current of poisonous gas  which was forced out by the compressed air and he to was rendered  unconscious. They both lay there  for several hours before they came  to and were not missed by the  others. It was fortunate for them  that Otto managed to get the air  turned on for it was that which  cleared out the smoke from the  vicinity and purified the air sufficiently to enable them to regain  consciousness. As it was they  were a couple of sick men for a  couple of days.���������Hedley Gazette.  H. W. Farmer?& Co.,  REAL. ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B. C.  Laths In Canada 1910  A Big Tunnel  One of the interesting engineering incidents of the present year is  the completion of the Elizabeth  tunnel, situated GO miles northwest of Los Angeles, Cal., and  which was driven a distance of 26,-  S70 feet through the crest of the  Sierra Medre mountain range in  1,240 working days. The November Popular Mechanics magazine,  which contains an illustrated article  on the tunnel says:  "The Elizabeth tunnel has a  capacity of 600,000,000 gallons per  day and a grade of 1 foot to the  thousand, so that the inlet is about  26.9 feet higher than the outlet.  When the concrete is placed, the  tunnel will be 6 feet 6 inches wide  and 10 feet 10 inches high. It has  been constructed through a solid  mountain of granite and more than  500,000 pounds of gelatine dyna-  .mite was used in the excavation.  One of the features Si the work is  that the tunnel is excavated directly beneath Hughes" Lake, a small  sheet of water cradeled in the  Elizabeth valley, 350 feet above the  roof of the big bore.  In The Powder Smoke  Two miners, Otto Johnson and  Emile Nilson, had a rather disagreeable experience in the Nickel  Plate one day last week. Through  the neglect of some one on the preceding shift the air was not turned  on before blasting and in an upraise  ,, Despite the use of metal lath and  patent methods of interior finish,  wooden lath production amounted  to eight   hundred   and   fifty-two  million pieces,  worth  one million  nine   hundred     and    forty-three  thousand dollars in Canada during  1910.    This information has been  obtained  from statistics compiled  by the Dominion Forestry Branch  which show that nearly thirty million  more lath were  produced   in  1910 than in the year before, but  that owing to a decrease in the  price per Ijhonsand, the total value  of  the  industry   was  thirty-five  thousand dollars less.    Two-fifths  of the total was cut in Ontario,  which province.increased its 1909  production  by  fifty-seven million  or nearly twenty, per  cent.    New  Brunswick the second province in  importance,increased its proportion  of the total from one-fifth to one-  quarter, by cutting sixty-two million more than last year.   The production of laths  in Quebec and  British Columbia during 1910 was  considerably more than  in 1909,  amounting with Ontario and New  Brunswick to ninety-per cent, of  the   total.    The   remaining   five  provinces cut smaller amounts, and  with the exception of Alberta, each  showed a decrease from the amount  produced in  1909.   The   average  price of laths in 1910 was $2.22 per  thousand or 16 cents less than in  1909.    The price varied considerably between   the different provinces, British Columbia laths being  $1.66 per thousand, while in Prince  Edward Island the price was $2.67  \  Leaves Mother L,ode  9.30  6:30 p.  a. m.  m.

Two   veteran []prospectors,  Dick  .Roberts   and   A.   Eobb,   who are  now working with A. S. Johnston,  stoiekeeper    and    postmaster   at  Poplar, claim to have   discovered  the lost silver mine of the Bayonne  country.  The mines around Cody are expected to be cm ths shipping list  before long. In the Noble Five  both silver-lead ore of good grade,  aud high percentage silver-zinc ore  has been shown up duiing tho past  few months. Development is being continued with encouraging results on the Eeco and Sunset.  The Vancouver World's mining  correspondent writing of the mining possibilities of Hazelton, states  that the work performed on the  various properties in that district  shows the couiatry to be rich in  mineral resources, and that the  yeins are remarkable for high grade  character of their ores. Onej point  in their favor also is the fact that  most of the development has been  done by the syndicates of mining  meu who knows their business, and  consequently there has been an absence of the stock notation methods  that have proved so disastrous in  other camps. Having followed the  history of mining in this country  for some time past it appears to  the writer that the Hazelton camp  is highly profitable development  provided that further work establishes the permanence of the ore  bodies at a depth and the continu-  GREAT COAL FIELDS  R. C. Campbell-Johnson said to  the Hazelton Herald:  "The coal on Ground Hog is a  smokeless, non-coking, hard, high  grade coal giving S-14 per cent,  fixed carbon and equally good for  all purposes which the Pennsylvania hard coal ia used. It is  particularly good for marine use  and we will command tho entire  market for the Pacific fleet (naval  and Commercial.)  "During this season's work we  havo uncovered and worked eleven  big commercial seams iu which  there is enough coal to justify us in  proceeding with the construction  of the railway for which we got  our charter last session of parliament. Our railway will be the  Naas & Skeena Eivers Railway and I  there will be very little delay in  constructing it.  "As  for the tonnage available  from the Ground Hog coal fields  it will equal the Pennsylvania coal  fields with a daily  output of 300,-  OfjO tons and the supply  will last  for centuries.    There are already  five charters for railways into that  country  and  four of them will go  down the Naas.    The Grand Trunk  Pacific which will have to get their  coal from there will build in from  Hazelton going up the Skeena and  Kispiox to the lakes at tho head of  the valley  and  follow this chain  over to Black Water lake "which is  one of the head waters of the Naas  river.    From  there they can get  through to the headwaters of the  Skeena and Stikine rivers, or follow  one of the forks of the Skeena to  Bear Lake on the way to the Peace  River country.    This will give the  Grand Trunk Pacific a productive  route right through from Hazelton.  All the railway grade can be kept  down to one per cent.    The passes  on the Courier and  Biernes Creek  are 4,100 and 4,300 feet above sea  level respectively,  while the elevation of the coal fields is from  3,000 to 3,500 feet.  "That there is sufficient tonnage  for all railroads is beyond the  guessing or estimating stage. Such  an output as mentioned means the  operation of 300 independent coller-  ies and the running of 300 trains  daily to the ^seaboard* The importance of the development of  these coal fields is immense both  from the standpoint of the vast  army of men employed and the  railway activity, to say nothing of  the wealth being added to the  country from the product.  l'lioto 1/j IXIott & Fry, London  SIR GILBERT PARKER  The Greatest Canadian Novelist.  A tall, well-built man, with dark hair, closely trimmed beard, calm, observant  eyes, gentle, and with the case and polish of a line stock intensified by thu culturo  that conies from travel���������this is Sir Gilbert Parker, Canada's gieat novelist. In  the famous city of Quebec lie was born in 1SG2, the son of an ollicer in the Iloyal  Aitillery and the descendant of many generations of fighting men. It scorned  natural that he, too, should woo the cannon, but he had his eye on tho cassock  and was educated for the church. lie was ordained a deacon but his train of  thought was switched oil the clerical track when he began to lecture on English  literature at Trinity College, Toronto.  In 188G he went to Aus'-alia for hi? health, and as one of the editors of the  "Sydney Ilcrald" had a roving commission to study the South Sea Islands and  their people. In his threo and a half years in Occanica he broadened in mind and  grew more sturdy in body; ho wrote and lectured, became interested in the stago  and with wide-open eyes saw life under new conditions. The literary harvest of  this period was an adaptation of Goethe's " Faust," produced in Sydney, another  Elay "The Vendetta," and two books of travel.   Then he went to England, and  is real literary genius had its first outeroppings in his works of fiction.  His remarkable short stories "Pierre and his People," opened up the literary  dark continent of the Hudson Bay country. They were fresh, crisp, vigorous  and virile tales; the field was new, the treatment masterly, the character drawing  vital, real and sympathetic, and the open-air atmosphere bracing and tingling as  a cold-water plunge. They had the same note of sureness, the same unquestioned  revelation of the coming of a great writer, that marked the d6but of Kipling in his  "Plain Talcs from the Hills." Most authors have a special sentimental fondness  for their first-born, but Sir Gilbert bought back and suppressed his first novel "Tho  Chief Factor," after more than fifty thousand copies had been sold. Of his twenty  or more books, perhaps "Tho Right of Way" has inspired most discussion and  added most to his prestige and popularity.  This famous novelist, journalist, lecturer, poet, dramatist and member of  Parliament, lives in London, in the aristocratic seclusion of Carlton House Terrace,  a short street closed at one end, so that the rumble of traffic comes only like the  surge of the sea heard at a distance. In a study on the fourth floor Sir Gilbert  does his literary work. Success, which turns the heads of many of fortune's favorites, simply gives new poise, ease and dignity to others. Simple, strong and  unaffected, Sir Gilbert carries with an unconscious grace the honors he so justly won.  Entered according to Act of the Parliament of Canada, In the year 1905, by W, C.

Wheat and oats are $1.50 a  hundred pounds at Brown's,  Ferry, Wash,  "Beyond the Ground Hog coal  fields lies another immense country  of which very little is known owing  to the difficulties of exploration.  This new territory is drained by  the Turnagain river which flows  into the Laird river and empties  into the Arctic Ocean. It is up  there where all the Cariboo make  their winter quarters so that the  climatic conditions must be as  favorable, ancl even more'so, than  around here.  "In days to come an all Canadian  trunk line will run up from the  Skeena river along the Stikine and  on to Dawson through to Alaska  and then connect with the Siberian  railway, thus serving an immense  country and at the same time realizing the dreams of the greatest and  most optimistic railway men of  America. With the development  of Northern British Columbia the  possibilities of this great road are  increased and the day of necessity  rapidly approaching."  Mr. Campbell-Johnston left  Hazelton for the coal fields on  June 20th and he was accompanied  by his wife and son. Mrs. Campbell-Johnson stood the travelling  exceptionally well and as a woman  is a heroine. Twenty-six days on  horseback, sleeping undt r the canopy of heaven and eating the fare  of men hardened to the rough life  of the prospector, seeing no other  white woman for months, is an  undertaking very few women would  attempt. Mrs. Campbell-Johnston  is glad she went. She has a world  of knowledge she could no otherwise get and she is every way the  better for her trip.'  Warding off Colds.

Her early days were spent in the beautiful  land of Evangeline where the very air seems redolent of romance and historic memories.   When she was six the family moved to Halifax, and there she received the  foundation of her education in private and public schools "lntil fifteen, when she  was sent to a boarding school in Scotland and thence to France to put some finishing touches to her education. ������������������'.'���������..'  -      On her return to Nova Scotia she taught-school for a time and then drifted -  into literature.   Her first short story brought forty dollars, but she soon realized  that real success could not be plucked like a rose in a garden; she must pay the prico  in years of observation, study, training and practice.   She spent several years in  foreign travel, as a post-graduate course in experience, and then returned to Nova  fteotia, ready for the serious work of her life.                    7 ;v    .
