Tho Reporter says that in one  day 15 schooners and 17 automobiles passed through New Michol.  A correspondent writing to the  Vancouver Sun from Grand Forks  says: Grand Forks will be the  main divisional point in British  Columbia on the Canadian Pacific  Railway's short line between tho  coaBt and Winnipeg. This "cutoff" line is of the utmost importance to the railway in these days  of keen competition, and the short  line is bound to become in reality  the main line for transcontinental  traffic. The Canadian Pacific realizes this and is "anticipating its  requirements at Grand  Forks  by  E. Zwicky    ,    " .      .        ,..,.. '    '  *'  planning immediate improvements  here on a most_ extensive -scale, ������������������  with substantial and fully equipped machine shops, large round  house, new depot facilities aud  greatly increased trackage accommodation.  This short line from the Coast to  Winnipeg, on which Grand Forks  becomes an  important   divisional  point, is bound to have the cream  of the traffic between the east and  the Coast.    The short cut has an  appeal to every one to whom time  is of any importance.     Time is  money and no incorporation realizes this more than a railway, from  the very nature of its business.  '    When   one   realizes   what   tho  Canadian   Pacifiic   will   save    by  means of the short line through  Grand Forks, one sees how really  important   this  feature is to the  railway.    In economy of operation  it will mean a saving in cold cash  estimated   at   $7,000,000   yearly.  This is an  item not likely to be ������  overlooked  by the officials,   who  are expected to make the road pay  dividends each year to the shareholders.  How can the line through Grand  Forks to the Coast save such a  vast sum  each year?   This is a  natural question,  but one   easily  answered.    It is just   290  miles  shorter than  the old  main   line.  It breaks away from the old main  line at Winnipeg and joins it again  at Hope, SO miles this side of Vancouver.   The short line is like a  straight base on the south and the  old main line like a broad sweeping aro to tho north.   Another important fact in regard to the short  line is that the grade is easy, that  much to be desired distinction in  the eyes of railway men.  . But this is not the only line the  O.  P.   R.   operates   from   Grand  Forks.    Through   its   connection  s  Concluded on Last l'ai*c. THE  LEDGE,  QEEENWOODi   BEITISH   COLUMBIA.  ,4  Is located at Greenwood, B.

In tho  first place there wns only one of her  against innumerable. ������������������uni'lltios of  family, and iu more ways than one  might often makes right.

Sho looked  tho type to amble on through life  with only the usual, ordinary things  happening to her, but fate got mixed,  for tho young man to whom she had  became engaged as a matter of  course, after going with him through  high school, was drowned one sunny  Juno morning when he nnd the  "crowd" were in swimming under the  railroad bridge up the river.

THE WORST SIGHT  It i.s now reported that an old  maid is a lady of uncertain age and  uneasy virtue.  Ir i.s the fault of country editors  that the free publicity schemes are  overtime.  working  In this ago of high living it is  pleasing to know that the price of  ice will soon be cheaper.  Winter is just over tho divide,  and uot a neigbor in sight has as  yet bought a load of wood.  We know a great many people  in Canada who keep one day iu the  week holy, and raise hell with  everybody during the other six.,  Tub time is coming when a man  will lie considered vulgar who has  more than a million dollars. The  nifijority of us stand a good chance  of being refined.  We are stepping back to the  Lark Ages when it becomes an offence against the law to exercise in  the open air on Sunday in B. C.  Bowser must be asleep,at the big  switch.  Junoixc; from our experience at,  Oroville and other parts of the  world, bedbugs are not crazy. 'We  see no reason why this little insect  should bo insane. It lives the simple life.. It is early to bed, early  lo rise, and does not take any rash  chances upon wandering away from  home. Tho bedbug has an extremely domestic and affectionate nature,  and is not proud. It welcomes,  even tho stranger, with a warmth  that is touching. One will never  be lonesome when these pretty little  creatures are abroad in tho still  watches of the night. They are  playful as kittens, and although  sudden death is prevalent amongst  them we havo never known one to  mourn when it became an orphan  by the cruel and forceful hand of  man. They are full of fortitude  and resignation, and when the  grave yawns for them they simply  turn up their toes and paes away,  leaving a sweet scent that with  difficulty can be forgotten. Shatter  a bedbug as you will, the perfume  to him still will cling, liko a bull  pup to the skeleton of a onco juicy  T bone   steak.  One day while visiting with Clara  Barton at her home in Glen Echo,  I asked her to tell me what was the  most terrible experience she had  ever had on a field, says General  Sears.  "It was at the battle o! Antie-  tam. The poor boys were falling  so fast that I rushed up to the line  of firing to save them from bleeding to death, by temporarily binding np their wounds. Bullets went  through my clothing, but I did not  think of danger. I loaded myself  with canteens, went to a nearby  spring and filled them with water.  I staggered under the load that I  carried. The wounded were crying for water. I went to one poor  boy who was wild with thirst. I  stooped, lifted his head, und was  giving him water from a canteen  when a cannon-ball took his head  off, covering mo with blood and  brains. I dropped tho headless  body and went to the next wound-"  ed soldier. And so all day I work  ed through this awful battle, and  refused to retire, though officers  and men tried to drive me back.  At night I assisted the surgeons  at the rude tables at tho farmhouse  under tho apple-trees. Thoy ara-  j putated limbs and dressed wounds  all night long. The morning light  revealed to us limbs that had been  thrown to one side during tbe work  of the night. It was like a groat  pile of wood. My dress and shoes  were soaked with blood.  That night the surgeons had no  candles. I brought from my supply  and soon there was a blaze of light  about the -operating table. They  had no food, but from wagons I  brought them meal which we had  used in packing the medicines and  supplies.  [fini says that Theodore   Roosevelt is a strong man of the Sixteenth-Century type.    lie   belongs   in  the age. of the barons.    In  religion  he is orthodox; that is, ho   has  no  religion of his own.    His   religion  is reactionary and   unprogressivn  It i.s a barbaric,   cruel,   vindictive  religion, which the thinking   men  and women of the world   have discarded.    It. is a religion of rewards  and punishments.    Mr.   Roosevelt  keeps one day in seven   holy.    He  does not like what Dr Elliott calls  "the now religion";   neither   does  he liko tho religion   of   Tolstoy���������  which is literally the religion of the  Nazarene.    Roosevelt is a man   of  blood; also ho is an honest   man-���������  and the only dangerous men   who  havo ovur lived are tho honest men  who aro on the wrong track.    No  one doubts the honesty   of   Calvin  Archbishop Laud, or Torquemade.  These men wore all sincere and also  serious.    They   lacked     humor���������  nnd humor is simply the   senso  of  values. Tho humorist laughs- at all  tho little   misfits.   Tho  humorist  I think I was in the greatest  danger at Fredericksburg, where I  crossed the pontoon-bridge under  fire to reach the wounded on the  other shore. There I worked all  night long. The weather had changed during the night and turned  bitter cold. When morning came  I found many of the Confederates  wounded and frozen into the mud.  I took an axe and chopped their  bodies loose from the ground and  helped take them to deserted negro  cabins. There we built roaring  fires in the old fireplaces, washed  and dressed their wounds and fed  the men with gruel. We warmed  them with heated bricks taken  from the tops of the chimneys."  It was in'Virginia-that she met  her most beautiful experience she  says;  ���������'I was walking along beside.the  long columns of infantry ono day.  We suddenly reached a stream, as  wide as a street. I was young and  strong and loved to walk. I had  four great wagons loded with sup.  plies for sick and wounded soldiers  These were coming-in tho rear.. I  decided I wouid not get my feet  wet, but wait for my wagons and  cross in one of them.  The soldiers splashed into the  stream in solid ranks, the water  being about a foot deep. Suddenly  die captain of a company in midstream called out- 'Company,  Fours, Left, March! Halt! Right,  Dress! Front! Now, boys,' said the  captain, 'I want yon to kneel down  in the water on your right knees,  and let Miss Burton walk across  this stream on your left knees.'  "This order the soldiers obeyed  instantly. I stepped from knee to  knee, the soldiers reaching up and  holding my hands.. And thus I  passed dry-shod to tho other shore.  As Miss Barton related this incident the tears streamed down her  cheeks and sho said, " This was  tho most beautiful tribute of lovo  and devotion ever offered to mo  my life."  soon ,she began to take an interest In  fall fashions and what her mother was  going to havo for dessert. It did not  seem decent somehow when her life  had been blighted at Its very star!. In  reality it had merely been fancy  which had mado Luke and her think  they wore each other's fates. A very  sweet, girlish affection she had for  him, but lovo was undreamed of by  Penelopo. It took Ford Driiinmon-1 to  teach her that, and the family opposed Ford from tho very 1*1 rat.  Tho Drummonds hnd come lo town  cnly a few years before and calmly  overrode so many of the current prejudices that people eald they wore odd  and disapproved of them. As to Ford  Drummoiul, ho would not settle dywn  to work.  Nevertheless, he easily wns tho most  attractive young mail'in towir. Pr-no-  lopo's family were very sot in thcii  Ideas, and one among them was that  every man should earn his own living  and stand on his own feet, instead  of living on his father as Ford Drum-  mond did. He made a few essays in  business, but always nuit in a short  time, saying ho did not like what h-  was doing.  "He's shiftless and lazy," Penelope's  father said violently soon after Ford  Drummond began dropping in to sea  Penelope frequently. "I'm not going  to have a daughter of mine throw herself away on a good looking scramp  like him. I'm going to save you from  making a goose of yourself, Penelopo.  When you got married you pick out  some steady man who isn't afraid to  work and who can take care of ycu."  At first Penelope plucked up enough courage to argue back, spurred  on by the strange now happiness  which was flooding her very soul, and  then her joy became streaked with  ���������nisery. Put even she could see tlint  Ford hid no future before him.  "I wish I could believe in vou," "she  told him pitoously. "You did not keej-  your word to mc that you would sticl".  it out in the abstract office. It's been  the same with everything you've tried  for two years. Maybe father's right"  He had looked at her bitterly and  then softened. "I guess I'm no good,  Pen," he said. "I can't seem to fit in.  Things don't appeal to mo. Cut, somehow, I feel I'll do things when' Uie  right chance comes along."  Ford had gone away then and Penelope had cried herself sick helplessly.  She loved him even though she could  not approve of him and his constant  failure hurt. He drifted out of tho  town's memory in time.  Penelopo never went with any one  else and in a few years was one of  tho accepted, permanent spinsters of  the place. It did not seem possible  she ever had been connected with  romauce or tragedy. Sho was over  forty when Ford Drummond came  back to town and registered at tho  best hotel. Tho local editor, being  new, did not remember the name as  that of a former resident, and judging  merely by the stranger's clothes and  general air, noted that "Mr. Ford  Drummond, a prosperous citizen of  Nevada, is stopping at the Park  House." Penelope held the paper  stiffly ��������� for a long while after she  had read tho item, resurrecting with  painful   labor   the   past.    "When   she  and Ford met at a social shortly  afterward they regarded each other  with a kind of wonder, not at thoir  changed physical aspects, but at their  mutual consciousness of a living past  In which they had cared for one another. Both of them were strangely  destituto of words that night, but the  next evening Ford Drummond camo  down the street under - the maples  toward her home, and she knew his  step before sho saw him. How many  times, years ago, had she sat liko this  In the dusk waiting for him! They  Bat long in the shadow of the vines  talking as people do when they aro  on the downward slope. He told her  all that had come to him, slipping  back through the years till he paused  at the boy she had known, remembering.  "You sec, I was right after all," he  said. "I wasn't built for petty mer-  chanting or dry clerical work. I  tlidn't caro what became of mc when  you went back on mo, Pen, at first.  Then I got angry to think you didn't  believe in me and I resolved to succeed. The minute I hit that mining  region it was like a now world and I  struck my gait. I mado good���������so good  that I was too busy for years to think  of anything In the past. Then when  I did I concluded you had, or course,  married some ono else. And then of  late I wanted to see you so bad Ihat  t camo back anyhow. Will you go  back West with me?"  Penelope Bushnoll was crying and  ���������somehow tho tears mado her faco  seem younger. "How can you want  me," sho asked, "when I didn't 'ravo  any faith In you then?"  "Thero wasn't anything to hsv-j  faith In thon," tho man told he*-  gravoly. "I'd novor amounted to ������  row of pins If you hadn't cast mo out  and hurt my pride. You'vo mad<* mo  what I am and I've never cared for  anyone else, Pen. Wo'ro going to  grow old soon and It seoms to me the  rest of our days might be happy. Will  you marry me?"  When Ford Drummond left town  shortly for home he took his wifo with  Mm.  in  When   money   talks  it doesn't  have to use a megaphone.  .......        , .

The friendship of our childhood had ripened into a love that was  little short of Ideal, and when she waa  nineteen- ��������� I being her senior by  four or five years -j- we were married.  I was an orphan, and had spent many  years on the Continent; her parents  wero wealthy, and wtih them she had  travelled much. Thus it happened that  we were both familiar with _ the  European capitals, watering-places,  and winter resorts, and determined���������  as wo had neither of us crossed the  Atlantic���������to spend tho winter and  the following summer in the new  world. So a few. days after our  wedding we found ourselves on board  the Royal Mall steamship Arcadia,  our faces turned toward the setting  sun, looking forward in joyful anticipation to the novel scenes we were  to witness together.  The passage began by being a rough  one, but we wore both excellent sailors, and enjoyod Its opening days.  There was only one cloud ln the  horizon of our happiness, and that  ���������foolish as It may seem���������was Mabel's  fear of the sea.  "Eugene, pray that the Bhip does  not go down ln the night."  . Ono night we had retired as usual,  and certainly tho scu was awfully  rough. It took oven mo, hardened 'as  I was, some time to get to sleep. I  was awakened by Mabel rapping on  tho side of my, berth and crying out:���������  "Eugono, Eugone! what la tho matter?"  I rousod myself and listened. Certainly a dull, roaring sound filled the  ship���������a banging and splashing which  drowned tho noise of the propellers.  A little alarmed myself I jumped out  of my berth, and telling Mabel to keep  quiet, I wont out into the passage.  I 'ran Into the arms of a scared,  white-faced stewart, of whom I Inquired the cauBe of the commotiou.  "Tho ship'B sinking!" he cried.  "Haven't they roused you? They're  manning the boats up there on deck."  It was true. Isolated as we were  In our state-room we had been forgotten. Assuming as careless an air  as I could summon up on the moment,  I returned to our state-room, where  Mabel lay lln an agony of alarm.  "Well, littlo woman." I enlil, "the  curtain is rising on your long-looked  for drama. The ship is going down,  but there's no particular hurry and  no cauBe whatever for alarm."  I helped her, and dressed myself,  putting some papers and valuables  into my pockets, and then, fastening  the life-preservers round myself and.  her, we sent up on deck. We had*  Indeed been forgotten! The last boat  waa Just preparing to leave the ship  with the captain- and some of the  crew. We hailed them, and jumped  in Just'in time.  The boat that had left the ship  before us had been swamped by a  wave, and Its occupants were struggling in the water. Instead of pulling  off at onco we hovored.-ln.the dangerous vicinity of the sinking-ship, trying  to rescue them. All at once the deck  burst up, and the ship settled. Our  boat waB engulfed ln the water; I  had only time to seize Mabel by the  arms, and we found our selves struggling for our lives in the eddy.  The night was pitch dark; there  was no moon, and the stars were  hidden behind the masses of storm  clouds. I could not see Mabel's face,  but her feverish clutch on my arm  reassured me, and I knew that she  retained consciousness. After about  ten minutes, during a lull ln the wind,  I said to her:���������  "You see, darling, the night le  warm, and we are perfectly supported. It cannot be more tban three "or  four hours to day-light at most, and  then we are. bound to be picked up Immediately. You feel safe with me, do  you not?"  Her ��������� voice oame back ln the impenetrable darkness:  "Yes, Eugene, I feel safe with yon;  but you have tied this Belt too tightly  round me. It makes me feel faint.  Can't you shift it a little?"  "Of course I can," I replied, and  the momynt thp sea seemed to be a  little calmer I proceeded to do so.  She was lying on one arm, and I was  busily readjusting the belt with the  other, when, ln the darkness, a great  wavo came over us, and dashed her  out of my grasp. I dived Instantly and  caught her by the hair, Just as she  slipped away, and, bringing her to  the surface, I held her closely In my  arms. The life-belt had been washed  out of my grasp, and I had to trust to  my own strength, assisted by the belt  that was tied round myself.  Alas I my wife had lost consciousness, and hung a dead weight in my  arms. For hours and hours and  hours, It seemed to me that I bore  her up In the blaokness of the night,  imploring her to speak to me ��������� to  open the dear eyes which I could feel  were tightly closed.  It was all in vain; save for the  occasional beat of the heart she might  havo been dead.  What a night of agony! Heavens I  how I prayed for morning ��������� for one  ray of 'light by which to see my  darling's face. I thought I should go  mad. My arms ached, my limbs ���������  my wholo body, grow numbed - and  cold; sometimes I almost felt myself  dozing off Into the sleep of death,  waking with a start to cry aloud,  "Mabol, Mabel, my darling, speak to  me!" and nothing answered but the  moaning of the storm as It died away  ln the distance.  At last a faint streak lit the horizon,  a flush tinging the edge of a cloud,  mado It visible In tho darkness, a  breeze rippled the Bullen billows that  rose and fell smoothly around us.  The day'was breaking: I shrieked  aloud a prayer of thanksgiving to  heaven that the night was over, and  bent over the motionless, senseless  body that I held In my tired arms  with a renewed vigour.  Little by little the sun uprose,-and  tho dawn came. With tho first grey  beam that crept across the ocean I  peered Into tho face that had lain  close to mine all night  It was that of another womanl  French .Thrift ;  To a certain extent, economy on  the part of the French householder  Is compulsory as well as instinctive.  Salaries and earnings, particularly  j those of the official and professional  I classes, are loss than In Britain, taxation Is on the whole higher, and com-  'modlties are dearer all round. With'  coal at 66s per ton, as ln Paris, a'  good bright fire Is -something of a,  luxury, and the national oustom of  using paper spills instead of matches  wherever a fire or gas Jet is available is explained by the comparative  dearness of matches owing to the  State monopoly.

In the matter of hospitality and en-;  tertalnlng they are more careful than  | we are, and the furnishing and fitting  up of .a homo, for instance, la done in  France  once   and   for  all.    .Another  writer has said that British ralddle-  class^fiolks will spend more upon their  homes in twelve months than French  folks of tho same standing throughout  Ihe   entire   course  of   their  married  lives.  ���������ten*  H.

Professor Rego says that  the cost of tho first fleet of Columbus  was 1,140,000 maravedis. The value  of a maravedi was about % of a cent  in modern money, The contribution,  therefore, that' was made by Queen  Isabella was about 37296.00, without  taking Into consideration the higher  purchasing power and money In  these days. The city of Palas, Spain,  also had to furnish out of its own  means two small ships manned ' for  12, months. : The cost to the.State,  .therefore, of the journey of.discovery  was not more than $7,600,00, about  the price,of .a modern first class automobile.' Of this sum the admiral received the sum of $320, the captalna  $192 each, the pilots $128 each, and  a .physician $38.50. The 'sailors received for the necessaries, of life each  month about $2.45.

"Well, sir," said the man, "I don't  think It's your sermon sends mo to  sleep. If you notice, I'm asleep be-  foro you start to -preach. Tho fact la,  sir, I have been in tho habit of taking  a nap at about that hour of the day  for years, and now I can't got out of  It."  "It's a very bad habit," remarked  the clergyman, though somewhat  mollified .at the thought that his  preaching wasn't the cause of the  man's somnolence; "and, apart from  Its being very Improper behaviour' In  church I should think It must interfere with your Sunday night's  rest"  "No, sir, It doesn't ��������� thanks to  you,"  replied  tho man.  "Thanks to me I What do you  mean?" inquired the astonished clergyman.  "Why, sir, my son is learning shorthand, so, for practice, he always takes  down, your sermon, and when I am  ln bed he begins ,to read it to me, and  I drops off to sleep in no time!"  The-clergyman'a feelings can better  be imagined than described.

The Jackson, mine, tbe only piop-  erfcy that has been  developed  to  any extent, has been a considerable  zinc shipper.    It has a mill equipped  for zinc separation  and was  among the local mines affected by  tbe closing down  of the K & S.  On  the Bell  claim, worked for a  time by leasers, a find of five feet  of  high grade zinc ore was made  ,   six years ago, but a duty  on zinc  ores entering the TJ. S.   interfered  and tbe parties working the claim  under lease abandoned it.    With  the possibility  of shipping  oro in  bond for smelting solving the marketing problem to a certain extent  the Jackson basin  should become  one of the leading zinc prodncing  parts of the district.���������Kaslo Koo-  tenain.  There is now on display at the  Kaslo Kootenain office some 150  pounds of ore from the Red Elephant group,   Hall creek,   Upper  Duncan  section.      Although   this  ore has been taken from   the surface of the lead, it shows remarkable gold values upon assay,  tak  ing  into  consideration   the   great  size of the lead itself and  the immense quantity of this ore in sight.  The assays  were made by J. J,  Fingland and sundry samples taken  across  five feet of the vein gave  returns S1S.40 in   gold;   samples  from ten feet gave returns of ������14.40  and from twenty feet gave 89.20.  No attempt was made to ascertain  the other values in the rock,  although it is known to contain considerable copper.    The opinion of  some who have examined tho property is that development of  the  Red Elephant will prove it to be  J America.    With the object of obtaining   control   by   purchase   of  these deposits tho gentlemen named  have been surveying and estimating  the extent and  probable value of  tho bars and benches known to be  platinum bearing.    Should'a deal.  be consummated with the  various  owners of gold-platinum leases and  miners'  claims a large  hydraulic  and    dredging    industry   will   be  established  and   the   recovery   of  these precious metals will   be proceeded with on a large scale.

C  OF LEGAL INTEREST  following decision   which  will   be  interesting to tho legal fraternity:  "In  this case Mr. Leggatt for  the plaintiff applied  to have the  plaint amended  according to notice given.  "Mr. Hallett for tho defendants  a copper-gold proposition,  as kid- objected this could not be done in  neys of rich copper are often found j the Long Vacation and cited Sec  tion 77 of the County Court Act,  Bale 964 of the Supreme Court  Bules and other authorities. His  contention is shortly that as there  is no provision in tho County  Court   Rules  as   to   delivery   of  near the surface of the lead. Their  opinion is that copper has leached  out close to the surface and that  wonderfully rich ore will be found  with depth. The oro now shown  here is a rather peculiar looking  substance,   a  reddish   brown   in  Vacation the Supreme "Rules .apply.  "Mr.    Leggatt   referred   me to  I Section  S2 of the  County   Court  Act and Rulel, Order XI  of  the  County Court Rules.    In my opinion   Mr.   Hallett'*- contention cannot prevail.    It i.s only as to  any  matters   of practice  or' procedure  (including.costs)  not  specifically  provided   for   by   this  Act   (the  County Court Act) or tlie Rules of  Court  (the County  Court Rules)  that tho proceed tire and practice  of the Supreme Court from time to  time in force shall apply.    Now it  seems to mo there is a specific provision made in Section S2 of the  In.tho caso  of Cummings   vs.   County  Court   Act   and   also   in  Broomfield & Henderson, His Hon- Rulo-1, Order XI- of the County  or Judge J. R. Brown made the Court Rules with regard to Tiling a  Dispute.Note and Rules 10, 12 and  14  of Order XVI of tho County  Court Rules give ample authority  to allow pleadings in  tho County  Court to be amended at any  time.  In order to   give  effect  to   Mr.  Hallett's contention I should have  to read into the Section and Rules  quoted   words   not  contained   in  them.    I do not think I should be  justified in "doing this, the more  especially as the County Court i.s  au Inferior Court designed to promote   the   disposing    of   causes  cheaply and expeditiously.
