Mr. Ross, Presbylcrisn minister.  The Knights of Pythias had charge of  the arrangements.  S. riennermau, of Midway, was in the  city Wednesday. Mr. Benuerman returned last week from Northern Ontario,  where he had been working ou his mineral locations near Ignace. He says that  Jas. Atwood, jno. Frost, M. II.

The doctor intends to uiakehis  headquarters in Kelowua in future aud  may visit Greenwood once n year. lie  and Mrs. Malhieson have been" residents  of Greenwood for about nine years, anil  have made many warm friends who will  wish them greater prosperity in their new  home.  Two of the C. 1'. R. detectives threw  away their badges and guns last evening  and decided to bccoiiie white. This was  a wise course, for as soon as the strike i.s  over the company will liave no further  use for thciii, and, as��������� i.s ��������� always the case  with corporations, ignore the incii who  do their dirty work. A 'company has no  use for a scab'except while he is filling  the place of a union 'man.  The banks of .Greenwood have quit  advertising in The Ledge. It is believed  that this course was taken owing to The  Ledge's position on labor questions. The  paper will probably pull through, We  are, of course, sorry to lose advertising  patrouiige, but would be more sorry Co  lose our self-respect and retain the ml'ver-  lisciuentH of the banks. Someday the  hank malingers of Greenwood liiay'need  a good word even from the I edge. Bank  managers are human like other mortals.  A baseball match wilt be played Sunday, the 13II1 inst., in the park, between  the married nnd single men of Greenwood.   The  challenge   came   from the  Saturday evening fhe Mvnrasler crick-  ctets came over to nlav a match Sund.iv  with the Greenwood eleven. After their  arrival, about o o'clock Saturday evening,  a smoker wis given iu honor of the visitors in Kiurles' hall, at which a large  number, of her than ctieketcis were present. O. B Taylor occupied the chair,  ;>nd imposed the penalties W B. Fleming was prosecutor. One of the most  laughable events of the ccuing was the  fining of Ficderic Kefiei, M. K , 50 cents  on the ch'n-tre of being an " Kxtremely  Rampant Socialist.". Mr. Kefler paid the'  fine mider protest. He admitted that the  crime wps a sei ions one, and the charge  was a difficult one to disprove on the spur  of thp moment, but his previous eood  conduct in Ih" community should be  taken into consideiation, and in a measure mitigate the extreme penally. A  number of songs were sung, recitations  given and speeches made, and a veiy enjoyable couple of hours were spent. The  recitation ofN. Robinson, of Myucaster,  was especially appiecialed.  The cricket match started at 10 30 Sunday morning with Myucaster at bat.    At  12.30 the ten wickets' weie down  for 58  runs, theonlvdouble figtiies being Somer,  Sowter and Morey.   Al 1:30 the Greenwood ele-.eu  went to bat,  and finished  the inning for -7 runs.    Mvncastcr then  went lo bat and piled up 53 runs.   This  left Greenwood 75 runs  for a win in the  second  inning.   A_t 6 o'clock,  the lime  limit, the local eleven had piled up 72  runs for 8 wickets, lem,';; them  three to  go to win.   The Myncisto- captain sug-  ge.-ted.  without  being asked,   that the  game continue until a win was made or  all wickets down.   AVI-r 1 sin tips were  drawn, Greenwood hart i>!*>'1-> -S with two  wickets up.   The  feature nf the second  inning was the batting of J. L. Coles.who  piled up 46 and carried his bat.    Myucaster were stronger iu bowling than the  local eleven.   Their fielding and batting  was good,- with 'the-exception  of three  men. ^Greenwood also had  some, weak  spots on fiejd, but this was made 'up for  bv the" exceptionally sharp   fielding of  McClung, Coles, de Wiele aud Browning.  Perhaps the success of the local eleven in  the second inning may he attributed to  the less effective bow ling of Somer iu the  latter part of the inning.  He had bowled  through both innings and probably became tired.   His bowling in "lhe first inning and  the beginning of second was  very effective,   de Wiele was the onlv  one who made a 4 run  hit.   Alston  did  very effective bowling for tlie local eleven  iu the second inning.   The wicket keeping of both McLaitie and Sowter was exceptionally good for men who have not  been in practice for years.   Morey of the  visitors is an  exceptionally good* bat, as  i.s also Browning of the locals,  but the  latter ran against hard luck in both  innings.    Altogether the game was a good  one, taking into consideration  the  fact  that few of the players have.not been in  a match or had practice for years.

First Mount Proves Refractory and  Dumps the Old Philosopher on a Pile  of Sand, Much to His Sorrow.  Shows Spite at Mrs. B.  [Copyright, 190S, by T. C. McClure.]  As soon as dinner was over tho other  evening Mr. Bowser slipped upstairs  with a bundle under his arm that Mrs.  Bowser bad not caught sight of when  ho conic home. She had carefully studied his features during the dinner hour,  but had failed to ascertain that there  .was anything doing. She had got seated with the cat on her lap, when ho  came dowustalrs and made a dramatic  entrance. A stranger suddenly appeared before her, and she almost screamed  out, and the cat stood up and arched  her back. One long look, and the stranger vanished and Mr. Dowser stood in  his place. But what a metamorphosis!  He had a riding whip in hand; he had  on a riding jacket; ho had on riding  leggings nnd fancy gaiters; he wore a  "HOW DO I LOOK IN THIS SUIT?"  rakish cap. It was Bowser���������Samuel  Bowser ��������� the Bowser���������equipped for  horseback riding.  "What nonsense is this?" demanded  Mrs. Bowser as she recovered from her  start  Mr. Bowser walked up and down  nnd switched his leg, and the cock of  his cap was rakish.  "What does it mean?"  "Mrs. Bowser," ho said as ho halted  before her, "I want no words with you.  On the contrary, I desire to talk over a  certain thing with you in the most  amiable manner. If any row follows,  you alone will be to blame for it."  "But what aro you dressed up like a  monkey in a circus for?"  Planned to Get Well.  "The matter of my dress is a mere  difference of opinion. For three months  past I have halt valvular trouble ol  the heart."  "I don't believe it!"  '"  "I have known that at least one of  rny lungs was going."  "llumph!"  "I certainly have had enlargement  of the liver."  "You haven't had a symptom of It���������  not one!"  "My spleen has been affected, and  owing to the strain on my mental powers I have been skirting close to a  nervous breakdown."  "And yon haven't said a word about  It! You have wanted a boiled dinner  throe nights a week and have eaten  like a horse. 1'ou have also snored at  night until the neighbors heard you.  Only last night a policeman stopped iu  front of the house and listeued and  then shook his club at our windows."  "I have said nothing about it, Mrs  Bowser, because I did not want to  alarm and worry you. I have lived in  hopes that a way would be opened for  me to pull through.. 1'ou know 1 have  always been a suffering but a silent  man."  "And you have at last found a way?"  she sarcastically asked.  "1 rejoice to say that I have, my  dear. Dr. Shields was in the office on  business this morning, and as soon as  he saw me he told me what ailed me  and gave me medical advice. He says  that if.I follow instructions I will be  a well man within two months. There  Is nothing chronic, but I have caught  things just hi time. Two more weeks  and it would have,been too late."  "And bis advice was tor you to slip  aud slide and bob around on a saddle,  was it?"  "Ills'advice, madam, was for me to  take a little gallop every morning, and  I shall follow it to the letter. There  will bo no slipping nor sliding nor bobbing."  "And you got that rig today?"  '   "Yes."  .   "And the horse?"  "Tho horse will be brought here every morning by a boy. It belongs to  a livery stable, of course!"  "And does Dr. Shields own tho stable?"  Mr. Bowser turned white and red and  glared, but had wonderful control of  himself. After a moment be quietly  said:  "The programme will go off just as j  I have laid It out to you, nnd on my  part It will go peacefully. I desire to  recover my health and shall make  every effort to do so."  : "But how do you expect to rid*  horseback?" she asked, but with less  aggressiveness in her tones.  "By climbing on the back of a horse,  of course," ho replied.  s "But���������but I don't bolievo you were  ever on the back of a horse in your  life. If you don't have the gentlest  kind of a horse you will bo sure to  meet with some accident."  "Madam, I am Mr, Bowser," ho aald  as ho walked around and swelled out  his chest. "Because I haven't told you  nbout riding to hounds in my younger  ;nys nnd winning four out of Ave hurdle races you talk ubout sliding-^yid  slipping and bobbing. Let us hear Be-  irjoro of it"  ���������"Very well, nut u any accident does  happen you must not blame me. 1 am  opposed xo the affair."  "There will be no accident and no  blaming. How do you think I look iu  this suit?"  Mrs. Bowser gave him a word of  praise. She knew he would carry out  his programme whether or no, and so  she softened down, as a wife should,  and hoped for the best. Mr. Bowser  exchanged suits again and looked upon  the matter as settled, and peace reigned during Ihe remainder of the evening. Once when he happened to catch  sight of the cat with a grin on her face  he looked around for the ax or the  crowbar, but Mrs. Bowser turned it off  by saying that the eat had been looking  at funny pictures in the Sunday supplements, and all was serene again.  Dreamed of Riding.  That night Mr. Bowser slept lo  waken nt brief Intervals. He also  dreamed, and in his dreams he was a  knight of old'on a cavorting steed.  Once the steed cavorted so eavortishly  that the knight would have fallen out  of bed had not Mrs.'Bowser seized him  by the shoulder. He was up and had a  special breakfast and was at the gate  to moot the boy and the horse. The  horse came clown the street mostly on  his hind legs. When he wasn't walking  on them ho was using them to kick  with.  "Isn't ho a���������a little fresh?" asked  the knight as the steed was filially  brought to the curb.  "Gentlest, quietest boss in the sta-  liles, sir," replied the boy. "This is  the boss we let out to invalids and little girls to ride, lie's just kittenish."  To corroborate the boy tho horse  reared and squealed and then came  down to kick the wheel off a peddler's  wagon. Of course a crowd collected,  and of course Mr. Bowser was "the  cynosure. Five minutes after the arrival of the horse he would have given  .$50,000,000 to be five miles away picking huckleberries.  "Will  he do it?" shouted  a  boy as  iilr. Bowser stood there trembling.  "Naw!" shouted a second.  "Look at him!"  "lie's got the ager!"  "He'll send tlie boss back!"  "S'posin' he'd been our general in the  Spanish war!"  Kicked Cart to Pieces.  Mrs. Bowser came to the door and  expressed an opinion; but, whatever it  was, the words were lost in the hullabaloo made by the peddler as a second wheel was shattered and his old  horse got a kick in lhe ribs besides:  The boy now offered to assist the  knight of old to mount and do some  cavorting, and what could poor Mr.  Bowser do? He did just what Caesar  or Hannibal would have done. He got  into the saddle and had the stirrups  adjusted. Then the boy ret go of the  bridle and stepped back, aud for thirty seconds the horse stood as if turned  to stone.  "Look at the jimdandy!" shouted a  boy. _rf  "Watch him pound pegs!" yelled another.  A builder had just left a big' heap of  sand at the opposite curb, and it was  upon that heap that Mr. Bowser came  down after taking a war balloon sail  toward the sky. lie struck in a heap  and on a heap, and the boy and the  horse went up the street like shadows. The knight was brought in and  laid on the lounge, and the crowc' was  dispersed, by a policeman. In the  course of half an hour Mr. Bowser  .suddenly sat up and looked all around  the room and then fastened his eyes  on Mrs. Bowser.  "Aro you feeling better, dear?" she  soflly asked.  He pointed at the clock.  "Yes, dear.   What i.s it?"  "The train leaves for your mother's  at 10:10." he hoarsely whi-pered. "You  can go now. and we will settle about  the divorce and alimony another time.  I know all!" M. QUAD.  CRATERS OF DIAMONDS.  Barney Barnato and the Sscret of thu  Blue Rock.  It is now generally believed tin)',  diamonds are formed in the earth by  extreme heat and pressure. Barne\  Barnato, the South African diamond  magnate, was one of the lirst men to  fathom the secret of the source of tho  Kimberley diamonds and to make- a  furtune from his knowledge. The  pioneers worked in the yellow earth  which lay on the surface aud found  diamonds there in abundance. How  they came there the men could not  imagine. When they had got through  this layer of yellow earth and touched  the blue rock underlying it their  hearts sank. They thought they had  come to tho end of their riches. Barnato, however, did not believe that  the gems had been deposited from  above. Ho believed that what they  wore working in were really thu  craters of extinct volcanoes, tliat the  diamonds had been forced up from  below and that whence these had  come more and greater were to follow.  So ho bought every claim he could,  and time vindicated his judgment.  Ho did not make his guess public  property. The ordinary man when  he found his !������iyer of yellow ground  run low made haste to sell out to the  uninitiated. One man who had reached this stage obliged a friend by allowing him to dump upon his claim  the yellow earth which had been  worked and sorted. Then he found  a newcomer who was looking for a  claim rich in yellow deposit. The  novice paid $2,000 for the site and  thought that he had virgin yellow  upon which to work. As a fact, -ho  had to go clown into the blue before  he handled a diamond.  But the biter was bitten. The claim  which was sold for $2,000 soon began  to pay out oi the blue rock and then  could not have been re bought for  $200,000. Barnato would have given  $-10,000 for it and taken the risk, but  he did not hear anything of the transaction until the tenderfoot had bought  and the man who thought himself  clever had departed.

You  .-at it with fork, spoon, knife, fingers,  race, .'hopstieks or scissors, as you prefer.  In the real Italian style It comes in  -.trings. Macaroni originally was Invented to be fed through a keyhole,  riie strings are of Indeterminate length.  \ny good Italian could start tuasti-  ���������nting a piece the other end of which  was ou top of the Masonic temple and  finish within seventy-three seconds.

Others insist that you must be to the manner born. Some say the Italians have  reels Inside, and there may be something In this, for they eat as though  feeding a machine by machinery.  N<> one has ever dared to measure  the length of a single strip of macaroni. Like the population and circumference of the world. It has to be estimated.

Philosophy begins at the mouse trap and  ends in glimpses at Mars. Let us now  take up the matter of my promises."  "It will be of no use whatever."  "It was the night of Dec. 20, Mrs.  Perkins, when you ; suddenly sprung  the matter of improvements upon me.  I was glad of it, T was not going.to  buy a Christmas present, and I hoped  .to make promises answer instead;  Likewise it Is a far cry from December to April. During the Interval even  the world might be wiped out."  "You expected to wriggle out," said  Mrs. Perkins, with a severe look.  "The word 'wriggle' again. We will  pass It, however, while I say that I  consulted a gardener and found that It  would cost about $200 to grade and sod  the lawn. Even then he would not  guarantee that It would not grow up  to thistles, burdocks, plantains and tho  like. It was a financial risk that I did  not think It wise to take. Besides the  .financial part of It, think of your disappointment had you stepped out on  the new lawn some morning to flint  yourself surrounded by a hundred boH  thistles!"  '-Ilnninh!"

Besides that, suppose you had  gone out seme evening to nit beneath.  the umbrageous shade ot tho twelre  and found them all as dead ns doornails! Mrs. Perkins, there is Imagination hero as well as philosophy."  "Yes, I think thero Is a heap more  of It!"  "I promised to erect a grotto. I rend  up on grottoes.

"No, Mr. Perkins; I shall tell you  the bare truth. ��������� You wanted a fountain that would tinkle.- There is a  big difference between a fountain that  squirts and one- that tinkles. A tiu-  kling fountain' should tinkle all day and  all night The sound is soothing; it Is  romantic. Tlie ttomans had the tinkling art to perfection, but It bus been  lost In the shuflle. I' must tell yon  that of the dozen plumbers consulted  not ono would guarantee, a tinkle.  They stood ready 'to guarantee a'  gush or a squirt, but a soft, melodious . tinkler-no. Then why have a  fountain at all? Why go to a great  expense to get something disappointing? It wasn't for the want of talking  tinkle - that you won't see a tinkling  fountain In the yard this summer.  No; a whale did not enter Into the case  at all, but might have done so had I  gone further into it."  SHe Gets Sarcastic.  "And the greenhouse, Mr. Perkins?"  she sarcastically asked.  "I shall have to make a longer explanation regarding that First, there  is no place Mo build one without  cutting off our light and view; second,  the expense would- be so great that  every flower grown would cost us a  quarter of- a dollar; third, it would  be to Invite dampness, mold and moths,  to say nothing of sickness; fourth,  the advanced doctors and chemists declare Dowers unhealthy; sixth, suppose wo had a greenhouse, and you'entered it some day when I was absent  and then the door locked itself against  you and I came home and found 3*011  dead! All these things and one more  must-be taken into consideration, my  dear. That one more thing Is green  paint. It has become a scarce article,-  and the price is outrageous. We go  ahead aud'build a greenhouse and then  find that we can get no green paint.  Ts a greenhouse a greenhouse unless  painted green?

Please excuse,  me for. the rest of the evening. The  strain on your intellect must have been  tremendous!"  For five minutes after she left the  room Mr. Perkins sat and stared Into  vacancy.

"There Is a league of teuants who  haven't paid any rent in-six months.  There are about 2,000 in the league,  and they' adopted the simple plan of  refusing to pay rent at all unless they  obtained certain reductions that tbej-  asked for, a plan something similar to  fhe one tried out in New York.  "Thp landlords first attempted evic-  tlqn, but they failed, as the police declared that they were unable to evict  2,000 families who meant fight and expressed a willingness to stand a siege.  Next the landlords brought suit in the  civil courts. The case coming on for  trial, the landlords rejoiced when nona  of tlie 2,000 defendants appeared.  Their joy was not destined to endure,  for at the last moment a woman defendant presented herself and announced that she had a defense to the  cause of the action against her.

I was completely discouraged myself, when one day  a lady 'riend called to see me, and-  told me Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had  cured her daughter of anaemia and  urged me to try them.- I decided to  try them, and in the course of a few  weeks felt somewhat better. I met  the.doctor ono day and he remarked  how much better I was looking. I  told him it was not.his medicine but  Dr. Williams' Pink .Pills that were  helping me, and he told me I had  bettor, keep on taking them. I continued to do so until I had taken another half dozen boxes, when my  health was perfectly restored.

Blamed   For   Offenses, Committed  His Wicked Cousins.  We^are often told of the fox as a destroyer of grouse, but I- should like to  hear the story of some eyewitnesses  as to his work In thisdirection. It Is.  very easy to find fox tracks about the  remains of a bird and theu say a fox  did it I believe that many of the offenses laid at his door-ore committed  by weasels, mink and wildcats, or  lynx. , '  During a part of tho year I have  known foxes to spend "a part of each  day digging among potato hills.Iu a  retired hollow for white grubs or mice  In" thp adjoining fields and to return to  the mountain at. nightfall, passing a  farm which was -almost covered with  young poultry-out" for grasshoppers.  From an'experience of about ton years  in a localltywhere foxes aboundl am  convinced that this animal destroys  but few, if any, chickens. Our trouble  there was,-first of all, hawks, then  skunks, owls and raccoons. . The fox  never .Invaded the chicken coops or  broke up the sitting turkeys out at the  base of the mountain. Of course in  winter a fox may sometimes trap a  grouse in the snow at night, but who  has ever seen a fox actually catch a  grouse? Come, now, brothers of the  forest, bo honest and own up. I would  be'glad to learn how the fox does the,  trick, if any one has seen It done.���������  Forest and Stream.  THE PERSONAL  EQUATION.  It Plays a Very Large' Part In Success  In Business.  If you stop for a moment to analyze  success In business yon will see It  comes 'through contact with people.  It is all hinged upon the manner of  -your contact. On every side you are  surrounded by a multitude of persons,  In every one of whom there exists a  potential force that may be exerted,  at ono lime or another, to add to your  success. The oftener you cause that  force to be exerted the faster your  business will grow. You can attract  these individual forces If you choose  and get the most from them, or you  can repel them and suffer actual damage from having come in contact with  them, or' you may take a middle  course, as many business men do, and  drift along In a purely negative manner.   -  Looking at business in this light it  Is apparent that tho underlying element which contributes mos(^ to the  success of any undertaking and to  business In the aggregate Is the art  of finding the vital points of human  contact that will set Iu motion these  forces. The persoual element must be  stamped upou your business.���������Edward  Payson Hatch in System.  "3EEIJV THINGS AT NIGHT."  Explanation  Is Found lo, the Special  Conditions of Night Vision.  Every one must at times have asked why familiar objects in & dim  light, tend to assume fantastic and  oftentimes alarming appearances, says  a writer in the British Medical Journal.  The explanation is to be found' in  the special conditions of night vision.  'The pupils are widely dilated and,  as in the photographic lens with a  large* diaphragm, the apparatus cf-  accommodation can only focus for-  one plane. As the faculty of estimat-,  ing distances is in great measure lost  in the obscurity we cannot focus with  precision, and a blurred, uncertain  outline is thrown upon the retina.  Then, too, colors viewed in a fading  light lose their distinguishing hue in  a fixed sequence until a point is  reached at which everything becomes  of one uniform gray tint.  It follows that the images which  are transmitted to the visual centres  are profoundly modified in color and  outline, and as they enter the eye  through the widely dilated' pupil, at  an altogether unusual angle the movement . of locomotion gives them a  peculiar mobility.  Now, ono relies on experience for  the interpretation of sensorial impressions; and when these present  themselves suddenly in an unusual  form they create a feeling of insecurity which finds expression in mental  perturbation nnd more or less violent  motor impulsion. In fact, the subject finds himself* in the position <.f  a horse which sees a rapidly advancing automobile for the first time and  does not know what to make of it.  Imagination .Tiding, these blurred,  mobile and uncertain images are susceptible of the most phantasmagoric  interpretation, and in persons who  are not' accustomed to control sensorial impressions by the exercise of  the intelligence fhe improsrv'ons are  accepted as realities and acted upon  accordinely.  GamekoepTS a**d others who aro  accustomed to night work make allowance for phenomena of this class  and correct the visual deficiency by  the aid of other senses, such as hearing, which are riot dependent on light.

"Look here," said Mr. Jones to the  house agent, "my wife will be calling  today, and I want you to tell her that  that house we have been looking at  is taken."  "But, my good -sir," protested the  agent, "it isn't taken."  "It will be then," answered Mr.  Jones, "j. am taking it now.

A visitor to the canal zone of Panama can have tho privilege of an in-  ���������tiuhiction to not less than eighty-three  species of mosquitoes, thirty .of them  found nowhere else. Fortunately they  do not all bite, and the contagion of  yellow fever is carried by only one or  ,them. Certain genera, technically called  megarhinus, psorophora and lutzia, are  found, which instead of spreading any  disease hostile to men wage war on  their weaker cousins nnd at times even  on their brothers and sisters. The yellow fever mosquito, tho only kind in  America spreading this Infection, scientifically called stegomyia, .Is very  scarce. It is possible to live for weeks  on the line of the canal without seeing  a single specimen. This mosquito Is a  strictly domestic Insect, never found  away from man. It breeds only In  artificial receptacles, such as barrels,  water coolers, bottles and tin cans In  and around human habitations.  One of the Ablest and  Best  Beloved  of English Statesmen.  No man in the public life of England enjoys a greater popularity than  John Morley, the friend and biographer   of   Gladstone,   the   Secretary   of  State   for   India   in   the Cabinet   of  Premier Asquith and now a member  of the House of Lords, having been  ennobled by the King at the time of  the reorganization of the Liberal administration consequent upon the resignation  of  the   late   Campbell-Ban-  norman.    Although   a   statesman   of  high rank, and a man who has com-  I petted the respect of friends and foes  I alike by the independence and  fear-  { lessness of his character, yet his first  interests are literary rather than political.   One of-his most valuable contributions to English literature is his  biography of Gladstone.  Mr. Morley is an advanced radical  and has steadfastly adhered to the  home rule policy of Gladstone. In  fact, it was Mr. Morley who converted  Gladstone to the policy of home rule  for Ireland. He is a "man who possesses fairness of mind and fairness  of purpose. He has not acquired  great wealth either from literature or  politics; in fact, he is, relatively, n  poor man. He is now 70 years old.  His knowledge of public questions and  his training should make him a valuable factor in the House of Lords.  Of ail the various modes of speech  "Which polished art and nature teach  ���������.

A  small cone made of the dried leaves  is placed on the diseased part, which  has been previously moistened, and  is lighted at the top, when it burns  down with a temperate, glowing heat  and produces a dark spot, the exul-  ccration of which is promoted by the  application of a small quantity of  garlic. The ulcer is kept open or healed as the indications of the case require.  Apropos of this oriental cure, the  American Indians undoubtedly came  from China, crossing BeJiring sea,  swooping down through Alaska and  the valley of the Columbia and scattering over this continent. They must  have brought the Chinese heat cures  along. A medicine man was asked to  cure a paleface of cancer. He said:  "Indian no cure cancer; Indian cure  burn." He was told to go ahead and  do his best, as the white man was  failing fast. So with a rcdhot poker  he burned out the sore wide and  broad and deep, then applied his  remedies of herbs, etc., and quickly  healed the wound. The patient recovered.  Their Achievements.

Wa it is going on in Canada between hired men. Men hired by a  small minority of the shareholders  of the Canadian I'acilie. Railway  cciiipany to operate that road as  railway ollieials are doing their  level bes.t to knock out men hired  by trades unions to run the road as  railway employees. The fool Can;  adians who furnished the credit to  build the road, and who have for  years paid excessive passenger aitd  freight rates in order that tlie few  minority shareholders could declare  dividends and manipulate the price  of shares, are looking on as spectators and wondering if they will  bo worsted during the light. The  Canadian Pacific Railway is owned  by thousands of shareholder.-* scattered throughout Belgium, France  and Germany, on whom the shares  wcra unloaded by big bankers in  Brussels, Paris and Berlin through  their agents and connections in the  smaller cities. Only a small .percentage of the shares are owned by  the men who act. as directors; but  the directors absolutely control the  affairs Qf the company through  having the power to hire its officials. Once a man becomes an oilic-  ial of a railway company he is ambitious to make a record for himself, and they are all imbued with  but one idea, and that idea is to  cut- down expenses and increase the  receipts. Cutting down expenses  means reducing wages of employees.  Increasing receipts means raising  of freight, and passenger rates. No  matter which way the Question is  viewed, the people who live, in Canada are '''skinned" in order to  benefit the big bankers of Brussels  and Paris and-Berlin. And the  people of Canada will keep right  on "yawping" about the greatness  of a railway company whose ollieials do nothing but skin them.���������  Prince Rupert Empire.  Had Already Left Fifty.

No one is happy  think himself so.  When a woman marries, a man's  troubles begin.  It's better to have a crying  wife  than a scratchy one.  Their sins and the bill collectors  often find men out.  It does not take much to make  a frog hopping mad.  Ridicule is another name for the  argument of a fool.  Most people would rather be  miserable rich than  happily poor.  You can see bargains everywhere  when you.haven't got the money.  The most peaceful woman will  strike a bargain when she can.  If a girl marries well her friends  will overlook her other faults.  Unless you have more dollars  than sense don't expect others to  consider your troubles  interesting.

The Society Woman.  When God gives a man a wife  and six children lie has done' a  great deal for a fellow. But when  He gives him a society woman and  a poodle dog Tie has done him up.  These society women look upon  children as a nuisance. I have  had some of these society women  shake hands with me and T must  sav I would as leave, shake hands  with a dead fish tail. I wouldn't  give one pock-darning woman for  nil the society women in the country. Between cutting nil' the top  of their dresses for the ball room,  nnd the bottom for th'* bicycle,  these society women will soon have  no clothes left. A man said to a  society ' woman: "I hope to see  more of yon." She then said:  "Come to the ball tonight." Rome  people say that I shouldn't talk  this wav before'a mixed audience.

Wouldn't Have Any but Peers.  There was a sheriff down in 1113-  state said Senator Deboe of Kentucky, who had a great respect for  the written law. He found out  that a prisoner was entitled to trial  before a jury of his peers, and with  great labor he discovered what  peers meant. A worthless chap  was to be tried for some small  offense, and -when the judge opened  court he found tho jury box occupied by twelve of the most worthless characters of the county.  What docs this mean ? demanded  the judge. Well, said the sheriff,  T knew the prisoner was entitled  to be tried bj* a jury of his peers.  It was pretty hard work to get  them,- but in case any of these  won't do, I have a few more hovering around a whiskey barrel outside. The court looked at the  prisoner and the jury.
