Mrs. James Fleming and three  daughters, Doris, Alice, and  Agnes, of Winnipeg, are visiting  in Greenwood for a few days, before proceeding to Carmi where  they will be the guests of Mr.  and Mrs. C. M. Shaw who are  camping at the Arlington lake.  The secretary of the Grand  Forks Agricultural Association  has written the Greenwood and  Mother Lode Football clubs inviting them to play in a tournament at the exhibition in Grand  Forks on Sept. 26th for a purse  of $100, the losing teams to be  paid all expenses while in that  city.

Caskinook had  been selling vegetables in the  city and at the corner near,the  Vienna bakery his horse took a  sharp turn upsetting the rig add  throwing the driver about 20 feet.  Caskinook was taken to the doctors office but no serious injury  was done.  Shot guns; twenty-two rifles  and ammunition at Walter G.  Kennedy's.  Envy and jealousy take from  you tho vitality that would enable  you to get that which you envy.  The Pollards Coming  The next visiting attraction at  the opera house is one of deserving  mention. The offering at the opera  house is the ever popular "The  Last Waltz," which is to be produced on Thursday, Sept. 11th, bj  the well-known Pollard Juvenilp  Opera company.  The fame of these youngsters is  too well-known to require anything  in the nature of a special introduction to the average theatre goer,  suffice to say that the entire company has won its popularity during  its    previous   visits    to   the  United   States   and   Canada.    In  this season's repertoire,  there are  a number of now musical comedies,  while all the principal favorities of  last season  on this continent will  appear in this delightful and highly-amusing    opera���������Teddie    Mc-  Namara,    Willie   Pollard,   Leslie  Donaghey, Carpard Van and Charlie Bennett, Eva audfMay Pollard,  Ivy Moore,  Dottie Brown,  Ethel  Naylor,- Patsie Finlay and  Philis  Philipson.

Jackson,  M.P.P.,/d'ug the'  second shovelful, then followed^;*  new Post Office block. TThe "ex  cavation work is proceeding apace  and so far the work has been easy  as no rock or hard pan has been  encountered. Mayor MacLaine  after making a few well chosen remarks to quite a large crowd, who  had gathered to witness the opening ceremony, had the honor ,of  digging the first shovelful of earth  G. Hargreaves, J. L. White, Dr.-  McLean-" and several others.  Mayor McLaine who is" clerk of  the works, states that it is contractors intention to employ local labor  in every branch of the work whero  possible. The material required  will be purchased from' local firms ���������  when it is possible to do so.  Steelite  Tests  Successful.  POWDER  ���������PROVES   A   BOON*   AT.

Gazette, $37.  Council adjourned until Sept. 22.  From   a   contemporary   newspaper we extract   the  following:  "Everyone knows how attractive a  bald head is to flies.    A local husband is smiling at   the  way he  fixes 'em.    His dear wife  pours  two to one lubricatfng oil on hub-  by,s head, rubbing it into a smooth  glacier finish.    When  the nimble  fly alights, it simply slips  up and  breaks its neck.    Who said bald  heads were not useful?"   While on  the subject of flies,  we heard the  other day of the highly cultured  state flies are rising to in some  partsCof British Columbia.   Flies  have been seen to deliberately walk  across the butter until their legs  were well greased.     They could  then walk over the jam with impunity���������and they did.  Last Friday the management of  the   Argo   Tnnnel started    using  Steclice powder, when a large number of those interested in this powder gathered  to witness tho  first  test.    O. Lofstad said, when interviewed,   that in all his experience  he had  never seen  its  equal  and  had he been using this powder a  year   ago . greater progress would  have been   made   at   the   tunnel.  A round of five holes  were fired  and all present went right  to  the.  face immediately the last blast went  off and   declared   that   no  fumes  were present   and   the  effect was  everything that could possibly be  expected.    A representative of the  company was present who gave demonstrations as to the safety of the  powder by striking it with>  hammer on an anvil and smashing' it up  with a shovel without causing an  explosion.  ���������,.Demonstrations, were, made -at  the Mother Lode Mine inlhe presence of Messrs. Norcross and Ham-  merstead, which were highly successful.   Satisfactory results were  also given   at   Sater   and   Johns  ranch.    Some of the chief advantages of the powder are safety,   entire absence of fumes, is not affected  by heat or cold, and   is   the only  chlorat of potash powder that works  at high efficiency in water.    The  authorities of the United Kingdom,  Germany,   Belgium   and  Switzerland have all recognized  the value  of   the   explosive.     In  England  Steelite is   the   only chlorate   of  potash powder which is on the permitted list.      It   is also on  the  authorized list.    It is allowed by  the authorities in Belgium to  be  used in fiery coal mines.    A large  factory is in  the course of construction in that country.    It has  been admitted by the German railroad authorities as a safety  explosive,  as it may be shipped on  any freight train as ordinary merchandise  at   the  regular   freight  rates.   It is now being used at the  Furka Pass Tunnel.  Tho Steelito Explosives (Canada) Ltd., of which Mr. W. R.  MacLean, M.P.P. for Nelson is  president, having purchased the  patent rights for the manufacture  of Steelito in Canada are now  building a . factor at Mill creek on  Slocan lake, immediately across the  lake from New Denver.  Mr. I. Crawford has returned to  Carmi after touring eastern Canada for the past three monthp.   ���������  Mr.   Wolf,  one   of the' K.V.  contractors  has gone to  Vancou-'  ver and other coast  cities for a '  vacation.  Mr. Barrett, chief fire warden  from Wolff creek, was in town Saturday and Sunday.  The hunting seems to be the  latest sport in Carmi. Some of  our- prominent citizens can kill  game without guns or licenses and  others stay out over night when  they can't find their way home.  The Ladies Aid will give a pink  tea Sept. 15th,  in the K.P. Hall.  The Board of Trade has decided  to grade Dale avenue.  Joe Cunningham, the mining expert, of Beaverdell, was registered  at the Brunswick hotel on Friday.  The K.V. depot is completed.  The operator will take charge oi  the key. October 1st.."

Sheridan has gone to  Greenwood on business.  Miss Irene Crawford has gone  east to spend the winter with  friends. Her mother, Mrs. I.  Crawford accompanied her as far  as Nelson.

THE  LEBG.G  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 Ledcre is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid,  ft 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.  Argo Tunnel  13.  GREENWOOD, SEPTEMBER 11, 1913.  A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once more  liko to commune with your collateral.  The  health.  greater   wealth   is  good  The haste to got rich has ruined  many mon.  It is still  a fact that the dead  never advertise.  It  is easy  for a fool and  his  money to get a divorce.  We cannot see the fool streaks  in our own formation.  We have never heard of a sunstroke on Lake Superior.  It is dark in Toronto when the  sun is shinning in Greenwood.  lb- the good die young there  must be a lot of wicked people in  Canada.  Man should be judged by his  deeds, and not by his years or  his prayers.  ���������If the bedbug did not stay up at  ���������nights the world would have more  " happiness.        Owing to the advance in .prices  tho cent belt is rapidly losing its  right to that title.  Wk recently met several parsons  in the east. They were all sober  and attending strictly to business.  Now that tho real estate boom  has died out, Greenwood and the  country adjacent should get a  chance to be developed.  Chops are good in the Northwest, but the real estate boom has  beer, killed forever. This will be  sad news to tho hot air artists with  the subdivisions.  Today Winnipeg is doing more  business, according to its size, than  any other city in America. This  is largely due to the vast amount  of money spent by its business men  in advertising.  TnE steamer Huronic runs from  Sarnia to Port Arthur, and carries  a barber who only charges 75 centB  for a sea foam, although we do  rot know what he taxes the public  for a lake foam. A chap like that  is waisting his time. He should  make more money holding up  trains.  Thinking Themes  A correspondent writes to the  editor of a paper in which many  lucubrations appear and "allows"  as follows:  "Of all the drive I have seen in  a reputable newspaper (outside of  a young Ladies' Journal,) I can  never recall having read such an  aggregious combination of petti-  neK9,falB0 reasoning, and raaudin  sentiment as is displayed in Dr.  Crane's daily articles I could understand it if ench gush as he exudes ozzed from tho pen of some  half-educated, sentimental high  school girl, who was writing a  highfalutin essay for her valedictory; but I imagine that eome���������  probably a majority-of your readers have it in thoir ' mental makeup a little more knowledge of the  world, a little more reasoning  power, and a little less sentiment-  alism than to deserve instruction  or to be unable to discern tho claptrap of it all."  This is only part of his letter. I  have taken the liberty of omitting  some other remarks on account of  the poBtal laws.  I gather that the writer does not  adore me with mad infatuation,  nor does he like my works. But I  am sorry to say that I get from  his letter a distinct sense of satisfaction.  I feel greatness coming on. I  feel renown creeping toward me.  For anybody can get compliments,  but when a gentleman froths at the  mouth and manifests a desire to  heave a brick at yon, then you  may congratulate yourself that you  have done something towards stirring things up a bit.  Although I cannot aspire to tho  "cool-headed -zeal" of Colonel  Roosevelt nor the severe self-restraint of Mayor Gaynor, yet as a  rule I am a mild and gentle creature, devoted to the art of making  a living by smearing ink upon  white paper. Yet hero it seems  that, all unwittingly, I havo landed a wallop on the solar plexus of a  bystander. Honestly, I didn't  know I had the punch.  Hereafter my" readers may look  for trouble.    I have tasted blood.  It all goes to show that, no matter how meek and well dressed you  are, somebody is going to long to  give you a poke.  You may not mako friends, for  that is a long and hard business,  but you can't make enemies by  just walking down the street.  And, personally, I love a sound  cursing. When people praise you  they may not mean it, but when a  man curses you it is rather certain  that he is genuinely sincere. He  speaks from the heart.  . Then you learn a lot from the  cursor���������many things about yourself, and sometimes about your  ancestry, that you did not know,  or had overlooked.  Cheer up, therefore! Strive ever  onward and upward, for the on-  warder and the upwarder you get  the more haters you will find anxious to take a shot at you.  There are people who are angry  even to look at you. They say all  manner of evil things they can  think of about you, and then some.  Never mind, they are the best  press agents in the world.  Besides cursing is a habit with  some people. I knew a man who  waB so given to expletives that if  vou asked him whero he lived he  would say, "Fifteen hundred, by  gosh, and seventy-three Indian  avenue.���������-Dr. Frank Crane.  Epilepsy is said to be caused by  overuse of the brain. There are a  lot who are in no danger of having  epileptic fits.  Ill IN I HE  BY (J.   \V.  TI. SANSO.M,  II  I havo been  personally conversant with   tho  ininnr.il  conditions  of tho  mountain   upon   which the  mining claims composing thn Argo  Mining company hold thr-ir ground.  Speaking   generally    upon   .tho  present tunnel works, liu-aning tho  ono that  runs into tho  mountain  practically on tho City of Greenwood's civic holdings.    Being now  driven in on tho mineral formation  in a easterly direction,  according  to the general trend of those, veins  or seams of  mineralization indicating true oro bodies.    The question  I havo  relative to  tho actual es-  istant in  tho mountain mentioned,  remains to bo proved by  more extensive work I recognise that the  present work  is being done in the  right  direction  and  requires   but  intelligent operation  to  meet the  results, that .1   fully  believe exist  in tho mountain.  Having worked ono mine known  as the Goldfinch many years ago,  and made profitable, is sufficient  in itself that ore bodies carrying  gold values undoubtedly exist, and  can bo permanently proved in  depth, if money and energy is  used.  I have ever confidence that time  will prove that this property or for  that matter others ou tho same  mountain will ultimately be shown  to have profitable mineral qualities,  when judiciously managed,  I submit this opinion   from my  examination,   and  recommend the  project to those who wish to lie interested in a mining venture.

COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD, B.C.  i!  TROUSERS CENTENARY.  It Was Napoleon's Men Who Brought  That Garment Into Fashion.  As nearly as can be ascertained It is  a hundred years since Napoleon Bonaparte's soldiers Introduced the old-new  style of leg wear which speedily secured recognition as 'the distinctively  masculine garment of civilians throughout two continents.  In 1814���������tho year before Waterloo-  It was related as a current news Item  of somo , importance that the great  Duke of Wellington had been refused  admittance to AJmacb's in London because, he presented himself wearing  trousers instead of the conventional  breeches. which the dress regulations  then ln vogue demanded.  As a matter of historical fact trousers have been worn by various races  and by both sexes in all the ages of  which   any   authentic   records   exist  Generally spenIcing, trousers were regarded in ancient times as symbolical  ?.   of inferiority or effeminacy.    In tha  ������  triumphal. processions of tho Caesars,  ,.%   for example,  prisoners of war'woro  them as n sign of defeat, while the  sturdy legs of Home's victorious legions  wero bare below lhe bottom of tlio  skirted or kilted coat of mall.  For the last hundred years or thereabout trousers have been widely recognized as the garments or authority, tho  outward nnd visible sign of the stronger sex, says the American Tailor nnd  Cutter. But that position has not been  won or -maintained without n struggle.- Many attempts have-been mado  to trample down the tyranny of trousers, as their rule has been culled. Many  times has their superiority been challenged. But so far their position remains secure.  O-**  Humor and  Philosophy']  ���������By SVACAA I*. SMITH  I WONDER.     .

Although for disinfecting superficial  wounds and for sterilizing the skin before operations surgeons have long regarded Iodine as one of the most useful  antiseptics, they have been unable to  Bud a practical way of using it in liquid  form in deep wounds.   Dr.  Louge of  Marseilles, France, has devised a method of producing iodine fumes and has  used them successfully in treating all  kinds of wounds.  lie dips the end of a  piece of cotton in iodoform powder and  then lights the cotton nt a point where  It Is free from powder. The fumes of  Iodine that at once rise can either be  applied directly to the affected pnrt or  collected in a jar and applied by means  of a syringe.  The effect of the fumes  Is both deodorant nnd soothing.  They  have been especially useful In the treatment of abscesses, cancers and similar  affections.���������Youth's Companion,  Poor Pompey.
