And the way tbe  news hunts up the editor is also  pleasant to contemplate. There is  something really strange about the  way the news items act. . Wheji  the paper is out the editor simply  goes to bis desk and leans back |n  his easy chair and looks wise aud  waits for next week's press day.  The day before press day the people line up in front of the office  door and then they file past the  desk and tell him all the news of  week. He writes it up iu fifteen  or twenty minutes, takes it back  and.hangs it on the hook. The  compositors take the- copy and  shake it over the type cases, say a  few mystic wards, the type flics ���������  into place, and after a few passed  by tho foreman the forms are ready  for tho press again. And the editor goes down and deposits some  more money iu the bank. It is tlie  greatest snap in tbe catalog.

Time was when the London' Sunday  was traditionally a day of uepression.  The staid and respectable British subject attended church services and  elsewhile shut himself in his castle  and banged down the portcullis. Nor  friend nor foe might enter there. Hospitality could cheer the rest of the  week.. But that one day' was consecrated to gloom. Now, it appears, all  this is changed. Church attendance  in the great metropolis has declined.  Rev. Dr. R. K. Horton, speaking in a  chapel at Hampstead, declared tliat  "unless God arrests the habit of our  people" the congregations may continue to decrease. One lamentable  result is a statistical decrease, by  comparison between a Sunday in 1903  and a recent Sunday, in church collections in London from $250,000 to  $200,000, a fall of 20 per cent.

Queen Mary possesses one of the  moat wondeiful collections of furs "in  the world, and she is very partial to  these. Included in Her Majesty's collection is a magnificent set of Russian  sables which weie presented to her a  few years ago upon the occasion of  her birthday by the Tsar and Tsarina.  She is often chatted by members of  her family regarding her pieference  for furs and fur-L'���������..lined garments,  and a short time ago his present Majesty was asked what he thought she  would wear upon the occasion of a  yachting trip in the Solent. "Well, i  am .not quite sure," he replied, with a  liumorousHhwinkle iin his eye,-'"but I  rather imagine it will be something  with fur on it." Strangely enough,  despite this partiality for fur, Her  Majesty, does not care for ermine,  and some time ago she suggested that  the robes of peers and peeresses -woul 1  look' far mote imposing if they were  trimmed with dark fur. The motoring coat that the Queen usually wears  is a marvellous specimen "of the furriers' ait, and is' made up of some  thousands of tails, each so perfectly  matched and joined that it looks like  one large piece .of fur even when subjected to tlie closest scrutiny. Queen  Mary's furs are all carefully stored  at Marlborough House in such fashion that she can obtain any set she  requires at a moment's notice.  Bishop's Hat Trick.

At the  close of tlie meeting the bishop planted his "shovel" hat down on the table  with a bang, remarking, "There's my-  hat and there's a five pound note;  now' then, we must get rid of this  debt." The hat was accordingly passed round, and produced over $250 in  cash and promisesT so that the debt  was cleared off with $100 to spare.  "That," said the bishop, "is doing  the hat-trick."

A girl 'with  deep brown eyes and hair in which  there was a tlm ot gold was standing  "beside the bout. Iu*r skirts blown out  against her slender figure. The fluttering sail had made so much noise  thai-Vam* had not hoard the girl before. He frowned unconsciously, for  he was In no humor for company.  "It's loo rough today. There's a nasty sea running, and you'll get wet  through." be answered.  "As If I cared for tUat! And if It's  so rough why do you venture out?"  "Because I want to, because'it suits  my uiood."  Tho words sounded rude, but Mar-  jorle Winidrop Unew from the Intent  expression on Vane's face as he gazed  out on the black clouds, tbe sullen  green water of the bay and the wind  blown whiteeaps that be was speaking more to himself than to her.  "And If It suits my mood?"  "You with moods, child?" Vane said  wonderingly. "What can you know of  thoughts black enough to suit with  such a day? (.Jo back to your dolls or  read your pretty fairy love stories and  believe in their truth as long as you  can," he added bitterly.  "You think bwatise I'm only seventeen I'm uot to feel and think."  "Think only of pleasant things."  "Hut if the day suits me It is pleasant.   Please take me."  "What will your mother say?"  "She wou't care.   Sbe only thinks of  Edith.   If it was Edith, now, it would  be different, but I'm not such a valuable cargo.   No one will bother about  me." ;  There was a quaver in the girl's voice  tbat made Vane look at her. . Sfte was  looking out over the yeasty water with  misty eyes and set mouth.  "All right." said  Vane after a moment's hesitation.   "I'm in a reckless  mood.   Let fate take care of us.   What  will be will be.   Jump In."  *******  It was a gusty day. and the Dot. too  light for such weather, her lee rail almost under water, staggered under the  (laws, every now and then burying her  nose Into* tbe rollers and sending a  shower of spray Into the boat. Vane  had all be could do to manage her aud  for a time forgot liis companion and  almost his gloomy thoughts in tbe  grim pleasure of his contest with wind  and storm lashed sea. It was Edith  Winthrop he was thinking of, the woman who had led him on to love her  and then thrown him over for another  man. Edith did not care. Every one  must be sacrificed for ber amusement  ���������yes, even this child, her sister. At  the thought be glanced at the girl  where she sat poised out to windward,  like some spirit of the sea, her hair  blowing lu the wind, her cheeks aglow  with excitement, ber eyes fixed with a  faraway .look on tbe horizon. Vane  had never noticed how pretty she was  before. He had always thought of her  ns a mere child, and. lo, she was a woman: What was she thinking of? he  -wondered.  As if In answer to the question Mar-  Jorle turned and met his eyes-for an  Instant and then looked away.  "You've heard of Edith's .engagement';'" she said.  "Yes," answered Vane, setting his  teeth bard. "1 found it out only today."  "I knew It weeks ago.  You thought  she cared for you?"  "Yes."  "You might have known she didn't.  Van Allstyne Is a richer man than you  ���������In money. It's wealth and power  she wants, and attention and admiration. Love.' She doesn't know what It  men ns. And you thought she had a  heart .'"cried the girl. "This sea has  more."  "I know It now." said Vane, "when  It's too lute."  "And yon-can you care for her  'still V* asked .Marjurle after a silence.  "Yes-at least I care for the Ideal 1  thought tier."  "What did you think her?"  "Brave,  courageous,  noble  hearted,  with-ii sour as beautiful as her body, a  comrade for a uiau. to face with him  dently.     "I   am   perfectly   safe   with  you." she ndded.  So ."tfarjot'ie had risked her life for  hlni so that In his desperate humor he  should not go alone. Rut how came  she. a mere child, to understand? She,  at least, had a heart to make sonio  man happy. And here he was putting  her 'ife nt th������ mihivv of the sea ��������� to  gratify bis selfish mood of bitterness.  .Well, ne must get her home at once-  then-Va'u thought be did uot> much  care what happened afterward.  It was blowlni* harder as Vane came  about and slacked the sheet fur tho  rim to the fur distant boathouse and  the hotel on the hill. They were going  before the wind now, the. boat* rolling  dangerously iu the clutch of the sea,,  the waves behind following with hungry jaws and threatening every mo-  ment to engulf them.  With braced body and strained muscles, every sense alert. Vane gripped  the tiller, striving to bold the boat  against the swirling buffets of tbe  waves, bis one thought to get ber sufe;  to land. Every moment the wind In-,  creased) every moment the bay became  more .tumultuous... Would they make  It? be wondered.  They were nearly opposite the boat-  house when there came a sudden whirl  of wind from between tbe bills ahead.  Vane bad but time to cry a warning  when the sail jibed, tbe boom came  swinging over with an angry snarl, tha  boat was flung upon her beam ends,  and'the nest moment he found him-  self entangled In cordage and battling  for his life beneath tbe waves. With  desperate. Angers be cleared himself  and came to tbe surface. And Mar-  jorie���������where was she? liad sbe been  strtK'k by the boom .abd made unconscious or killed, or had sbe, too, been  carried down by the sinking boat?  For an,agonized moment Vane could  see no sign of her, and then be spied  her just coming to the surface. She  was going down again when he caught  her aud started for the shore. It was  a long swim against a tide that seemed  to drag him down as if with clutching  hands, hut Vane swore he would save  this girl who had risked her life for  him or lose his own. He could see people running to tbe boathouse now and  getting out the boat. How slow they  vri're'. Would they never come? His  muscles were giving out; his breath  came heavily: his limbs felt like lead.  Could he hold out? They were wearing fast now. He tried to revive bis  failing strength, to overmaster bis  weakness. The world grew black before hiuir'and then a strong arm gripped his shoulder, and he and Marjorle  were lifted into the boat and rowed toward shore.  *******  In those days afterward, while Mar-  jorie hovered between life and death,  CI iff old Vane learned how much ho  could do for this girl, this girl he>  thought was a child aud now knew to  be the woman in all the world for him.  Gone was his love for Edith Wluthrop.  He knew now that he had in ber sister  all tlutr. \Kdith had seemed and more.  And there came a day when he was  permitted to see her.  lie found her on an upper piazza of  tbe hotel clad In a soft blue wrapper,  her soft hair loose on her shoulders,  'and the smile ber pale face held for  him gave him hope that in saving her  he had found happiness.  REFORM IN BRITISH PRISONS,  Many  Churchill   Boldly,  Does .What  Have Tried to Do.  Eight Hon. Winston"Churchill, tha  new English Home Secretary, has,  during the few mouths he has been, ia  office, boldly done what many English prison reformers have been vainly  endeavoring to get-done for ��������� year3.;  This brilliant young politician has an-  nounced a series ot reforms in' the  British penitentiary system. It is said  that Churchill will do more than mitigate the horrors.of solitary imprisonment. He will introduce legislation  dealing with offenders' between the  agiis of 1C and 21. Instead.-of being  sent to prison the youths who have  not committed serious offenses will be  subjected merely to some sort of drill  or physical, instruction which will, be  both punitive and salutary. This reform, it is believed, will save 5,000  lads fiom prison every year.-    ' ' -  Theie will be changes in the treatment of political offenders, including,  sulfragiets. They will enjoy many  privileges. Prison clothes need not  be woin. There will be -no compul-  soty baths, no search, no hair-cutting  and  no cell cleaning.  l*'ite exercise with the right of conversation will. be permitted twica  daily, also visits tioin, friends, and  books not dealing with current events  may be read.

In Wellington's day death was the  almost invariable punishment of tbe  soldier who deserted in time of war,  while even in peace time such atr/i-  clous sentences as 1,000 lashes with  the "cat" were by no means Infrequently inflicted. Yet in spite of this  desertion was far more prevalent than  It now Is. for enlistment then was for  life, aud to "tako French leave" was  the ouly way out of it. Today tbe soldier Is well fed. well paid and well  cared <for, and be does not desert, at  all events to any great extent. He  stops absent without leave, he "skips  out" of one regiment in order to join  some other be likes better, he rejoius  the colors from the reserve under an  assumed name, and so on, but these,  things, although reprehensible enough  in themselves, fall short, of desertion  as popularly understood, although  some of them are officially classed as  sucb.

Another   Huge  Gem.  A report has reached London, from  Johannesburg, South Africa, of the  finding of another large diamond in  the Premier mine.

It tapers" in breadth from one  and one-fouith inches to three-fourth3  of an inch at the smallest and is valued at $150,000 uncut. ^  The Premier mine became world  famous in January, 1905, when the  Cullinan* diamond was discovered  there.

THE LEDGE  GREENWOOD B. C. OCT. 20, 1910.  R. T.  Loweby,  Publisher.'  TflE Kootenay Hotel in   Nelson  was recently.fined $100 and  costs  for selling liquor to a  an   enfant,  only 20 years old.   In the eyes  of  tbe law anyone under 21 years of  age is an enfant.   The   selling  of  booze in this province is becoming  a dangerous business,   financially.  If a man invests his money  in   a  country tavern he is liable  to lose  his license npon the word of a  policeman.   If his bartender  is  not  clever enough at guessing ages, or  judging when a man is really drank  the landlord is liable to  be  fined  for selling tbe glad water to minors  or intoxicated individuals.     After  a while the law may become more  strict and force all married people  to produce their wedding ceritfi-  cates before they can get a room in  an hotel.   The liquor licence law  tii 11. C. isdia&tic enough  to suii,  Russia, bat, in some respects the  authorities are straining at gnats  and swallowing elephants without  eauce or mastication.   We are not  quite sure, but under the impression that there is no fine for selling  impure  liquor.    At  the  present  time half the botelmen stand a fair  chance of dying prematurely from  fear of the law.  The postoflice service iu Canada  is honeycombed with inefficiency.  Too many cheap clerks and too.  many fat postmasters grown in-'  different to the clamors of an irate  public, because they obtain and  hold their jobs through political  influence. This is the curse of the  postal department of this great and  glorious Dominion.  Ladysmith must be a delightful  place to live in. Some of the inhabitants are in the habit of giving  the editor of the leading- paper  baskets of peaches. It is incidents  of this kind that give the fourth  estate an occasional, glimpse of  heaven, ��������� especially if the donors  also furnish the cream.  In these days of high prices for  nearly everything, it is pleasant to  notice that at least one thing is  failing in price. Although not  sold in departmental stores, radium  can now be bought for 62,100,000  an ounce.  Live upon tbe sunny side of  life, and keep away from the grou-  cher who knows nothing but hard  luck stories.  The world needs fewer and bet  ter children. The breeding and  raising of children should be reduced to a science so that the  world will contain as nearly as  possible people who are perfect  mentally and physically. This is  the real way to make life worth  living on this mundane sphere.  While the world is filled with invalids, lunatics and misfits, the  carnival of crime, disease and misery will ever be iu tbe limelight.  Notwithstanding the new liquor laws, the hotels and boarding  bouses in some of the coast towne  are full every night.  Talking about the Boy Scout  movement, the Western Wage-  Earner says that pledging boys to  honor their employers by hating  anyone wbo opposes tho said employers ii; a very pmnorh way of  developing ������������ now strike-breaking  force.  A Tough Country.  Returning prospectors from tbe  Naas river country tell many tales  of hardship, as heavy snows are  now falling in the mountains over  the divide and the yawning cracks  in the glaciers are becoming menacing owing to the snow covering  them so the gold-seekers cannot  tell what minute they aro going  to take a plunge that will encll  their lives.  Howard .Porter,   discoverer- of  the  quartz   ledge   on   which    13  claims have beeu located, accompanied    by    Dan    Bivrtholomow,  reached camp last. Saturday completely "all in" from the rigors of  their trip.    Bacon was their, only  food for three days.   They  nearly  lost their lives on the Bitter creek  glacier which they conld uot cross.  A back trail was made to the camp  and the return  to  Stewart   wfis  made over the Bear river glacier,  Everett Galloway reached Stew  art on Sunday starved to a shadov*.  after three days and nights  with  very little food and no fire spent  getting across  the  Bitter   creek  glacier. -Stewart Miner.  ;<     ���������   )  -'i  .1'  * /'  \  X  1 */--���������(
