They  say-that iu all their long-experience in managing and conducting sales, .they have never ^.been  given so free'a hand to" slaughter  prices as they have in this sale.

Chesterton lately avowed-  that if the English were logical, if  a man were stung by a wasp on  Brown's land he should prosecute  Brown  under the, game laws for  keeping a dangerous wasp at large.  The English laws are not quite  so logical as that,  but are logical  enough for a court lately to allow  compensation act to the widow of a"  waiter who   had   died   from   the  sting of a wasp on the tip of his  tongue while setting the table in' a  tent for dinner given to the villagers on the occasion of a great wedding.

For 20 years Bob Cunning has  conducted an hotel in Sandon. In  addition to that business he also  operates a farm in the city limits,  Crabs That Walked 85  Miles Home.  Most of us know how pigeons  sent hundreds of miles from their  homes fly straight back to their  lofts when liberated, but not even  Alice in Wonderland met a crab  traveller. Scientists have been  proving, however, that crabs as  ���������well as birds and dogs and cats  know their own homes and travel  far to get back to them.  The members of the Eastern Sea  Fisheries commission caused a  number of crabs to caught, marked  and turned loose in the sea at various distances from their homes.  Those which had been liberated  near home when caught again were  found to have travelled only a  mile or so; others got back from  far away to their birthplace. Some  Lincolnshire crabs which were  turned out off tho Yorkshire coast  trundled away home a distanco of  85 miles.  .One Helped the Other  A lady was continually accusing  her servant of extravagance without any real cause.   The servant  always bore  this accusation  patiently.  One day the servant informed  her mistress that the coal had all  been consumed. This was followed  by the usual remarks on the part  of the mistress, who finished up by  saying:  "You evidently eat th8m."  The next day the candles were  all gone.  "Candles gone!" said the mistress. "Why, I bought half a  pound only a fortnight ago."  "Oh, well," rejoined the servant,  who conld stand this sort of thing  no longer, "I can tell you where  the candies have gone. I ate them  to grease my throat so that I could  swallow tho coal more conveniently!"  Generous minds are all of a kin.  REAL.ESTATE SHARKS  We have but little sympathy for  the boobs who have been  stuck  with outside property, nor are we  overwhelmed with grief over ��������� tho  stinging of Canadians back east,  because both are in a position to  ascertain for themselves  the approximate value of the stuff they  are buying,  but we do object most  emphatically to seeing people stung  on Calgary outside stuff over in  England. 7'There are some Calgary  real estate men over there right  now,  throwing the harpoon with  unerring aim and catching whales  galore.    Firs't thing we know, the  Western Canada real estate market;  will be ruiued on the other side of  the pond, the same as happened to  B. C. mining propositions.    Western Canada is being exploited over  in England -in   shameless   style.  The damaging effect of this raw  work will endure for years.  It is the easiest thing in the  world for a western real estato  agent, who himBelf happens to be  an.Englishinan, to frame up a line  of dope that will prove irresistible  to the average well-to-do old  countryman. He knows exactly  what will lure the sucker.���������Eye .  Opener.  h>  t'\  ,lP'  ifflHB^B3ffiEffi^^S!WSw^^^fflBBSffluB 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 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; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.  The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  the county of Bruce. To the United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.  R.  T.  LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD, MAY 30,. 1912.  A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  becomo deceased, and that the editor would once more  like, to commune with your collateral.  Tim world loves a cheerful loser.

Titk greatest merchants of the  world havo always been the greatest advertisers.  lightful Place, nor to make ue  Happy, but it is to make us finer,  nobler, more wonderful and great.  The characteristic of wisdom is its  conviction of ignorance, that it  needs more wisdom; of genuine  goodness, that it ought to be better;  of real uobility, that it should be  nobler. Life's truest symptom is  the craving for more life. There  is small hope for one who thinks he  is good and wise and noble enough  devoid of spiritual control. Obstinacy and selfishness havo'murdered more human beings than any  other form of plague. Every man  and every woman must give of his  or her best. It is the duty of  every man and woman to rest ancl.  recuperate from the stronuous life  they lead.  Dr. George J. Fhidinsm, of New  York says: "Dietftic ignorance  and carelessness, unsuitable environment and unhealthy social customs are directly responsible for  the alarming increase of physical  wrecks. The careless, intemperate  indigestion of food, tho inability .to  secure its oxidation through lack  of proper exercise in the open air  have contributed their share to a  glut of unassimilable excess within  the body, causing disturbances or  stagnation, which imposes a defi-  ciont supply to thb secretory organs  so that they cannot perform their  functions properly, and also imposes a serious and unnecessary  burden upon that sanctuary of  vitality, the heart.  Treat a sick man or woman with  methods that would keep a well  person strong and vigorous���������with  a regulated diet, fn sli air, pure  water, light exercise and comfortable surroundings���������and you will  prevent diseases of all kinds.  Few women will tako the time  to think out this prevention proposition, and yet how necessary it  is, not only to them but to the  future generations'.     If every wo-  and the camel driver has his.  What is in the monkey's mouth  may not be his; it may belong to  the hunter.  Not to aid one in distress is to  kill him in your heart.  Working in competition quickens  the hands.  He who marries a beauty marries  trouble.  If you don't praise me, don't  spoil my good name.  Corn near the path never ripens.  He who knows a matter beforehand can confuse the liar.  A bribe blinds the judge's eyes,  for a bribe never speaks the truth.  Gold should be sold to him who  knows its value.  Hope is the pillar of the world.  He who has no house has no  word in the community.  He who forgives ends the quarrel.  Inquiry saves a man from making mistakes.  If a matter be dark, dive to the  bottom.  Wisdom is not in the eye, but iu  the head.  A fool is the wise mau's ladder.  Tho frog enjoys himself in tho  water, but not in hot water.  A woman who has lost her rival  has no sorrow.  The sixty-four pages of this little  book discover that tho "heathen  African is a philosopher, and not a  poor one.  No town amounts to much, unless its business men are extensive  advertisers in the local papers.  Some burglars recently stole a  coffin from a store in Enderby.  Perhpps they- wanted it for a  policeman's funeral. -  If the land around these parts  -was under cultivation, Greenwood  would soon be a progressive little  city. Greenwood needs a few live  land boosters.  There is a hen in New Denver  that drinks out of a water tap.  "With a little training Jim Ward  thinks she would soon be able to  drink out of a bottle.  The Editor And His Work  The rocent meeting of the Arkansas State Press Association at  Little Rock prompteckthe following  glowing tribute to the country  newspaper editor by the Little'  Rock Democrat:  "It's to the editor of the so-called 'small paper' that we doff our  hats today, for in him we have the  most valued type of citizenship.  "The world today is in a hurry.  The average man is too busy fighting for his living to keep in touch  with the affairs of the nation or  state.

The world needs a shorter and  better Bible. The present one haB  too much chaff in the wheat. It  tires and mystifies common minds,  and even the great cannot agree  upon its teachings.  With all their fuss and fluster,  the Industrial Worriers have not  yet made a move towards helping  the poor policeman to get higher  wages, or the married women to  get an eight hour day.  Ix eight days this month, a  coast real estate agent sold $10,000  worth of coast realty, in and around  Nelson. Little wonder that money  is scarce in the interior when so  many are gambling in distant real  estate.  Thinking Themes  "The Good is the enemy of the  Best," is a truthful proverb.  The real crime is the failure to  grow better. Whoever will not go  on up is thrust down. Living  one's life is like riding a bicycle or  an aeroplane; to stop means a bad  fall.  It has been said, why educate  the Bimple Bavages? They are  happy as they are, and what faults  they have are probably not so bad  as the evils of civilization. But  the question might with equal  justice be turned upon ourselves;  why should we learn more and  have opportunities for further  advancement? If we fail to improve the occasion it is as bad with  us as with the savages.  Salvation, in its true sense, is  not a question of Safety, but of  Progress. What shall make us  Safe is a purely speculative inquiry  "What will make us better and  wiser is a real problem.

He must depend npon the newspapers for his information.  "Our metropoliton newspapers,  gigantic organizations that tbey are  have not the time to devote to such  questions the study which they require. They havo the current  news of the vast world to print  from day to day.  "But the country editcr has the  time and he does study the problems of national and state government. He keeps his finger upon  the pulse of the nation and naught  escapes his eagle eye. He is the  people's sentinel, ever standing between the public he loves and  political intrigue and plot. He  fears no man, and the billion of  trusts awe him not. When he  scents danger his clarion voice  sounds a ringing warning throughout the land. Fearless, ever vigilant and alert, tho country editor  watches over tho people as a shepherd over his flock.

That absolute change from arduous duty, whether' of society or  work, restores youth and beauty  to womanhood. To get relief from  the monotony of housekeeping, the  incessant demands of motherhood,  or the routine of society, is necessary to women if they want to retain their youth and beauty.  It is not necessary to go to  Europe for health; there are many  and delightful places right here at  home where a few weeks may be  spent in rest and a health regime  without the expense of a European  trip; where mineral waters for  every requirement may be had, as  good or better than the waters of  Carlsbad or Marian bad.  Remember: Self-preservation is  the first law of beauty and.youth.  OH! GEORGE  Geo. L. Pedlar, editor of the  Fernie Free Press, was a visitor  iu town for a couple of days this  week. George pushes the pencil,  manages the shears and manufactures many of the origiual ideas  that appear in the brightest  papers of the interior. He  taught school here ten years ago  and came back to pat the little  boys aud girls on the'head and  interrogate on the ��������� Shorter Catechism. They are not now pat-  able aud have emerged from the  Catechism into two-steps, skirts,  claw-hammars, etc. . The first of  little boys met measured six feet  two from end to end and tipped  the scales at 216���������not to be patted  safely with anything but a gas-  gipe and then only under most  favorable conditions. But the  little girls! .George thinks ot  coming back about Christmas.���������  Slocan Record.   -        ,     *  years to come if the boys and girls  of today can only be induced to pay  into the Annuities System a few  cents each week. For example, a  young man of 20 by paying in 50  cents a week until he is 60 may  purchase an Annuity of $352.76;  and a young woman starting at  same age, and paying alike amount;  for the same period, could secure  an Annuity of $311.72, which, owing to her longevity being superior,  is .somewhat less than he would receive. The age of 60 to a young'  man or woman of 20 may seem a  long way off; but it may interest  them to know that, "according to  mortality experience, of 10,000 of  either'sex starting at 20 considerably more than 50 per cent, will be  still living even at 65. There is  more than au even chance that you  will be one of the 5,000.   ���������  Information as to the cost of an  Annuity at any age may be secured  0" application to the Postmaster,  or to the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to who your letter  may be sent without postage.'

Women and men alike neglect  their greatest asset through ignorance, not knowing how to breathe  properly or eat properly.  There is no reason why age  should lessen the enjoyment of  life. The persons who allow themselves to sink into feebleness and  apathy merely because of the passing years have some mental or  spiritual weakness in them which  they have not the will to overcome.  The woman who suffers her  beauty and freshness to wane.and  fade on account of what she or her  friends call age showB that she is  Mrs. Isabella Fyvie Mayo, of  Aberdeen, Scotland, Las just published an interesting brochure under the title, Stories and Sayings of  the Continent of Africa, in which  readers interested in negro folklore  will find much to entertain them.  Mrs. Mayo has rendered a distinct  service to the African here and  abroad in putting in shape these  specimens of wit and wisdom of  the African.  I submit a few samples of the  thoughts that aro back of the black  man's mind:  The white man is the father of  merchants, and want of money is  the father of disgrace.  Ashes fly back on the face of  him who sows them.  Ropes get entangled when goats  are tied to the same post.  The dawn does not come twice  to wake a man.  Calamity has no voice.  It is better to be poor and well  than rich and ill. (Wonder if  wealthy dispeptics will indorse  this?) "..���������..',.���������.  The hunchback is never told to  stand upright.  The ox that arrives first drinks  the cleanest water.  No one gives a cat to a hyena to  keep.  No man is clever enough to lick  himself on the back.  He who will not take advice gets  knowledge when trouble overtakes  him.,  The camel has his own opinion I  Poor Old Mother  In the correspondence column of  a contemporary there recently appeared a question by a son-in-law  with whom his wife's mother had  been  living as to whether other  members of the family (three sons),  who were said to be able though  unwilling,  could be compelled to  bear a portion of the expense of the  mother's   maintenance.   She   had  been living with one of the sons,  and the brother-in-law had been  asked if she could be boarded in  his house  so that  the   daughter  might look after her.   This was  agreed to,  but the board money  was not paid,  and after eighteen  months of sguabbling the question  was asked.    The answer was diplomatic, namely, that the matter was  one which required most judicious  handling,    and    that  a   solicitor  should be consulted.   Had the person   in   charge   of   the  question  column known   of the   Canadian  Government Annuities System, the  wisest thing he could havo done  would havo been to recommend the  purchase of a Government Annuity.   At her age (75) an Annuity  of 8300 (875 every three months),  payable as long as she might live,  conld   have  been  purchased   for  81,992.   The mother could   then  have lived happily with her daughter for the remainder of her days,  the son-in-law would have regarded  the mother's presence in the house  as a boon rather than a burden,  and the family ties should have remained unbroken.   But best of all,  the comfort and happiness of the  dear old mother, who had nursed  them in their infancy, had, perhaps, spent many a sleepless night  in anxious attendance upon them  when the "Dread Messenger" was  hovering   near, ready to .snatch  them away from her, and who had  guided their young footsteps in the  straight and narrow path-priceless  services-would then have been assured for all  time.   Happily in  Canada cases of this kind are few,  and they will be still fewer in the  W. F. M.  Greenwood Miners  Union, No. 22; W.  F.

Eight hours constitute a shift,  and most mining is carried on now  by three such shifts in the 24 hours.  One of these shifts, going to work  at their proper time, find the place  where they are working clear, and  drills a certain number of holes,  and the next shift completes the  work of putting in the requisite  quota of holes. In some places the  second shift noc only charges and  fires the holes they havedrilled but  also the holes drilled by the previous shift. Before charging the  holes the tamping stick' is placed in  the hole to determine the depth and  . angle they are drilled in order to  decide how many sticks of powder  each hole requires. The men who  do this are obviously the only ones  who know the exact location of  each hole its depth, the amount of  powder in each, and the amount of  tamping placed on top of the powder. Suppose one of the holes  missed fire, and all laws and the  company's regulations are complied  with, the next shift is fully aware  of a missed hole, but they can only  have a faint idea of its exact location or its angle, and are quite  ignorant of the amount of powder  and tamping used, so very often  drilling is begun without a dilligen-  search-being made, the result somet  times being fatal.  The remedy suggested is that the  only persons to search for missed  holes should be those who charged  and fired the same.  In the Kossland camp, where  regular blasters are employed, the  system is somewhat different from  that in vogue in other parts, and  there are not many serious accidents, but the suggestion seems to  be a happy one and should be the  means of reducing accidents in  those districts where they are fairly  numerous.  A Strange Accident  How a flock of starlings set fire  to a small town in Wirttemberg is  told in the German 'Electrotech-  nical Eeview.' The town is lighted by electricity, and one evening  there was a series of explosions,  most of the fuses blew out and the  people rau * out of their homes,  some of which were burned to the  ground. It was some time before  the true cause was ascertained.  It happened thus: A hawk had  been chasing a flock of starlings  which bad sought refuge in a corner of the power house and had  crowded together in terror between  the overhead high tension wires  and a lightning conductor. Thus  a short circuit was established,  which would not have had serious  consequences had not the ground  been in an extremely dry and  parched condition.  The absence of moisture in the  soil put the earth connection out of  action, and the current had therefore to seek another outlet, with  the result stated. It was not until  a little heap of carbonized starlings  and an electrocuted hawk were  found on the spot that the mystery  was cleared up.
