Iu spite.of the prevailing sharp
cold snap the New  Year's Eve
dance in "the "Masonic-Hall" under
the auspices of the Knights  of
Pythias aad Pythian Sisters was
well patronized and  very enjoyable.   The   supper-provided-by
the Sisters was perhaps the best
ever served at a dance in Greenwood.    Bush's Harmony Orchestra was in attendance and suppl ied
up-to-date dance-music'with masterly pep.    Although the" attendance was not as large as  anticipated still under the unfavorable'
weather  conditions-  everything
was most satisfactory.
The school reports that" appear
once a month in The Ledge
should be studied by the parents.
If a boy is at the bottom of his
class list every time, or near the
bottom, he may not be trying, he
may not understand ih_e_work..__A
wise parent can help his boy in
these cases and one' who isn't so
wise can do. a great deal. We
have often ' heard teachers say
that they* would rather .that par-,
ents would not "interfere with
their childrens' studies, but of
course this is only a dignified way
of boasting and like all other
strutting counts for nothing. As'
a rule the child that gets assistance from home reaches the high
school early.        - ,

Jack Paul
Samples of ore, showing upwards
of 100 ozs. silver to the ton, with
good lead values as well, havo been
received at the office of the Jack
Paul Mining Co., Hutton building,
following development/clone within
recent weeks on "the ' "property.
These operations are: described by
Frederic Ke��Eer, E. M., consulting
engineer, as highly satisfactory,
notwithstanding that they are
limited by necessity of maintaining
a small crew at the present time.
One showing opened up at one
point is a face of two and a half
feet of silver-lead,. - which also
carries some ainc and nickel. The
latter, however, is of no commercial importance, though its presence
.is always welcome, as it has always
beenv associated with good silver-
lead values in the Jack Paul ore
showings.   '    ' ~
The company, which is a Washington corporation,, was recently

Hon. Mr. Sloan points out-that
the bigger production of gold ir
most encouraging, as was fehe jump
in copper. In 1923'there were
54,000,000 pounds of the latter
metal produced, as against 32,359,-
000 pounds in 1922.
���.    .-.,       The increase in  zinc production
planned to maintain development is pointed to as  most remarkable.
���Mining During the war years this metal
was produced at the rate of between 49,000,000 and ,50,000,000
pounds per annum, which waa considered most striking. However,

The minister of  mines predicts
that even greater strides will be
made in mining during 1924. Confidence has been restored in British

v.-!i:th through flu- development of natural resources.
An example ol what can aud ought, lo be don.' is furnished by lho present
.'m'.-iageuu-ui of the ���'Canadian National Railway,?. In .192.1, the C.N.It. had an
-I"fitting profit of only, three million dollars which did not go very far to-'
'���-arils meeting its ioten.-st charges. Last year the C.N.It. increased its oper-
tting surplus to ? 18,000,000 or more, and whilo this did not moor interest
.fitirges in full, it did malo.eially reduce tlie deficit to-be inet'bv the country
i.' large. .""'���"
How was it accomplished? By larger-.eiiniings through increased traflic
.\:n3 Die development of productive services, but also through a very gratify-
i.:ig reduction in operating expenses resulting from good management, the
i-.ir.iinatio.i of waste, and sound economies. Kor example, gross earnings ot
���:.'.i> C.N.It. last November increased by .��CSQ,57S over November, .LS.21, but
'���eentting expenses wcre>tfccreased by almost two million dollars, resulting
ni\ _. not operating .surplus of >.,581,3'.l$, an increase of -135 per cent, over lho
corresponding month of :i_)__i. Sir Henry Thornton anticipates an operating surplus this year, if nothing untoward happens, of ?30,000,000 aud he predicts that by Uie .--nd of :192s the C.N.'U. will cease to be a burden on tlio
3'om.tnion treasury. ���'<-.,.
Another problem to. be tackled by Canadians, individually and collect ive-
iy, it to make Canada a more self-.conlained and .self-supporting country. To
solve uot only our Transportation problem, but other'economic weaknesses, St

Natural Resources Bulletin
Liquid  Condensate from  Natural .Gas
Important Article of Commerce'
Tlio Natural Resources intelligence
Service of tho Department of tho Interior at Ottawa says:#
When natural gas "was first struck-
in Pennsylvania aud Ohio, they were
already' two of tho most populous and
enterprising states in tho Union. A
very different condition exists in East
Central and Northwest Alberta where
already tho flow of a largo supply of
gas is assured, but the field of usefulness limited.
Tho ideal way fo utilize natural gas
is for domestic heating, lighting and
cooking, aud as a fuel in the development of power for manufacturing
plants, l.ut before this can bo done
there must exist both the population
and the factories within a reasonable
distance, say 100 miles, ,to jconsump
sufficient gas and to pay a price high,
enough to wararnt thc operation of
tho field and the investment requisite
to tho laying of tho pipe lino.
If, however, there is nothing to be
done, at present in tills direction, and
the gas is to bo utilized, the manufacture of commodities for. which there
is a continuous demand, such asj gasoline and carbon-black, is tiie next best
tiling. Twenty years ago it was the
common experience both in tho Pittsburg and the Ontario gas well district,
that in tho'cold weather wlien"-a good
flow of gas was required lho" presence
of a liquid condensate.that���.ficcumtjlat-
ed in the lpw..;places on tlio pipe line,'
interfered "with th6' steady-' fio^Vaivd'
necessitated pumping out or'dfaiiilhg
at intervals. Nobody"l'ealIzed then
that in a few years' timc this liquid
would beconie an iuiportant,ariicleof
commerce, and would add millions of
dollars to tho income of the natural
gas producers.      . .,.'.'
��� Since 1901 varibus processes for obtaining gasoline from natural gas -have
been in operation, the object being to
extract it at the wells before-entering

Relations Between the Two Countries   .

��� .^ , Cordial .
lJrobably tho greatest international
phenomenon in the world's history is
the' drawing together Industrially of
the people of .Canada and the United
States' without any political impulse
or tho remotest suggestion of' a gov- ,_
ernmental union. Elsewhere iu tin-
world, international rivalry in maiij
ufftcturing and commerce has always
led to national hostility, either open -
or-repressed, between neighboring nr.^
*Tho relations between these .uvo
countries, however, havo during the
last 20 or ao years grown rapidly closer and closer, wliile commerci.il rivalry
has been ou tho increase. Their respective railroad systems ignore the-
boundary line, and the trains pass
back.and forth as freely as'do those
of Great Britain between England tahd
Scotland." The stocks and bonds of
Canada are quoted on the New York
markets just like our own. In social
life whero such differences as exist
have the greatest influence on pas---,

f-iecalls the Days When Conservatives
Were Glad to Have  Him in
I was shown a poster which e\i-
tlenily had been issued by the Con-
seivatlve central ollice. It represented me as a mere vain talker who
has accomplished nothing. There ij
no party from wliich that Taunt comes
witli such ill-favor as irom tho Torj
Were thoy of ihat opinion in 39.11
and 191S? My recollection is they
were rather glad to havo this vain
talker in charge of state affairs in
those days. When British finance
was in a slaie of panic and arrangements had to be made to save it
| from disaster, when shells and rides,
machine guns and cannon had to be
forged and great organizations had
to bo improvised ior turning them
our ac iho shortest notice to support
our gallant men in tho field, the vain
talker had his uses.
When Germany had broken up Uiree
of our Allies and was on tho point oi
breaking up a fourth, when the German submarines were sinking our
ships by millions of tons, the Torj
paily was frightened, so Heightened
tliat Ihey shirked ollice and begged
this vain talker to take charge and do
his best to pull the country through.
When there wa"s great unrest in this
country after thc war in 1919-20, and
there wero menacing-' strikes and
movements, they were glad lo get him.
I recollect another poster in which
I figured in 191S, also issued by thc
Conservatives. It was a more lettering povtrait of myself than the
present ono. It was issued in tho
interests of tho Conservative candidates v.ith the words: ���Vuppnn lho
man who brought victory."
I can show you one still sticking lo
an old brick wall iu a constituency in
the home counties, whore it was fixed
during tho election ol 1918. if was
only when they thought their I roubles
were over, troubles in Europe and
troubles in.Ireland, and that trade was
beginning lo pick up that they suddenly discovered I v. as a vain talker,
aud that fhe time had come for thefu
to have a change.���From ;i Speech at

after January persons making applications i'or iarni loans, who are diversifying, will be given the preference.
It was also decided lhat there will be-

Devotional Reading.���Psalm  2^.
The Text Explained and Illumined
The Reason for the Migration to
Canaan, 12.1. Now Jehovah said unto
Abraham, Gel ihee out of my country,
and from, thy kindied, and irom thy
lather's house, unto .the haul that I
will show tlide���thus our narrative
abruptly begins. The difference between Abraham's adventure and that
oi the oLher great adventurers���Columbus or Drake- or .Balboa���lies in
tlie motive back of it; ho was carrying out, not his own but Cod's leading. How did God speak to him?
Evidently a powerful inner impulse, a
sense of destiny, an overmastering belief that God had given him a definite
mission, impelled Abraham io bo up
and away. "How does Cod speak to
you and me?" Dr. Jowett questions*.
"We use all manner of vague phrases
to express our souse of iho divine
leading. Here is a little batch of
them: T had a feeling!' '1 could not
get away from H.' T could not get-it
out" of my mind!' 'I felt I must!'
There is nothing very definite and
illuminating about this speech, and yet
it all suggests ihe compulsion of a
divine imperative. Sometimes the
divine will is made known to us in
some now and strange assoi tment of
our circumstances; an unexpected
door opens, and every oilier door seems
to close, aud theie I.s only one way. before us. Wo can talk of men without
the ministry of actual speech. �� If I
come upon a blind man at a street
corner wlio wishes lo cross tho street,
I do not guide him with counsel, I
speak to him with a grip! I lay my
hand upon his .shoulder and speak to
him in the language ol dumb -constraint, ls not this the meaning of
that groat phrase in the book of
Isaiah, 'The Lord said unto mo with a
strong hand?' Isaiah loll ihe dumb
grip of the Almighty, and ho foit Jio
must! Some similar imperative laid
hold of lho soul of Abraham, and he
felt lie had got to leave tlie homeland."
Tho call of God Abraham obeyed.
As the writer ot Hebrews slates it:.
lly faith Abraham,'when he was called,
obeyed to go out into a place- which
he was to receive Tor an inheritance;
and he went out, not knowing whither
he went. His course illu.stiale.s ihai
groat definition of iaith, as substantiating tilings hoped tor, cwdencing
filings not seen. "Abraham had no
knowledge of the ultimate goal, but he
was perfectly sure of the present
direction. Whore the road would lead
after the next turning he could not
tell; but tliis much was clear, "it is
along ht;iv!' 'The distant scone' was
slill in the mist. llut what of that?
The immediate direction was plain,
'one3stop' was enough. And so it is
wiih dhine guidance today. Tho
Lord does not iight up ihe entire
road leading from the calling to iho
goal. He jiiot lights up the hit of
llie road we have to travel oday, and
the rest is slill hi daikness ' Howell).

Editor Thb Ledge,
Sir:   '"������'.';
Iu your issue of Dec. 20th under the
' iadiug "News from the Capital" there
... re several statements that are contrary
0 the facts. Knowing The Ledge's
reputation for fair play I feel convinced
you will give me au opportunity to refute
(1) "After submitting more or less
meekly to veiled insinuations oi" wrongdoing in condition with P. G. E. railway
affairs    .    .    ."
For about 10 months the Proviucial
Party on every -public platform and in
The Searchlight'have been making the
most definite charges against Messrs.
Bowser and Oliver, backed up by the
affidavits of government officials and subcontractors, in connection with maladministration and corruption of P. G. E.
affairs, open letters have been written
to the Premier demanding 11 Royal Com-
_uissicm_to investigate, all with jio icsult."
.Finally the Provincial Party Convention.
at Vancouver sent' a Petitioi; . to the"
Lieut.-Goveruor embodying a large niiiu-'
ber of charges, asking for a Royal"Com-:'
mission, and under that pressure it appears possible that at last it rriay.be obtained; although at the moment "of writ-
7 ing that appears -by. no means certain."
--, "(2) It is impossible with the small
"  space  at my disposal- to- refute fall the
- charges against Genr. McRae, but just to

Great interest is being manifested
in the International Dog' Derby to
he run at Quebec during'the Winter
Carnival on February 21st, 22nd and
23rd,. 1924. The race is for .teams
of huskies driven by .Indians, trap-
pars, traders, mail carriers and others. At present ten. entries have
been received and others are expected froni the north shore of the
St.��� Lawrence and from-tiie Abitibi
mining district. As navigation will
soon close, it will be necessary for
entries from the latter district to
mush' 400 miles to reach Quebec.
About five American . teams will
probably take part, their object being to regain the gold cup for the
United   States.

Thc new Continental remedy called;
-"LARMALENE" (Reed.)
is a simple harmless home-treatment
which absolutely cures deafness,
noises in the head, etc NO EXPENSIVE APPLIANCES NEEDED for this
new Ointment, instantly operates
upon the affected parts with complete
and permanent success- SCORES OF
Mrs.K. Wilkiiison, of Slad Road, Stroud,
writes:���"Please could 1 trouble you to send me
another box of tbe Ointment. Iris not for myself, but for a friend of mine who is as bad ah I
was, and cannot pet any rest for the noises in
the head. I feel a tiejf woman, and can go to

3.���Another view of the Baggage Car.

4.���This Is where the mails are sorted.
Almost every day we rely upon His Majesty's Postal service for the
delivery at certain hours of letters and parcels whicli are of value,
and which would lose their value were they delivered tardily. Seldom
have we cause to complain of the service rendered in exchange for our few
cents and we have come to expect the efficient regularity of that service
regardless of the 'natural or economic disturbances which affect other
services. The letter was stamped and placed in the postal box. It must be
delivered, and. with dispatch, rain or shine.
Due to the increasing use of His Majesties Mails, the Canadian Pacific
Railway has found it necessary to add to its rolling stock, twelve new Mail
and Baggage coaches. These, being up-to-date in every respect, provide
every facility for the handling of the mail, and a number of conveniences for
the clerks which the older type of cars could not boast of. The "All Steel"
cars are some of the finest used by Postal authorities in the wofld, and the
Company is to be congratulated, in that providing every facility for the
quick handling of postal matter, it has kept an eye to the comfort of the
clerks. ���     .  -,   .
The forward end of the travelling Post Office, for such it is, is used
mainly for storage purposes. On one side, movable iron stanchions separate
the bags destined for the various towns en route, and on the other isthe gas
stove, for, cooking purposes,- ice water tank, lavatory, wash basin, and
clothes cupboard ��� innovations which are-greatly commended by the clerks.
The rear end of the mail compartment is.the business end. A long
reversible table, running lengthwise, allows the clerk to face either side of
the car in order to sort his parcels into the bags which are supported by
-folding racks, and into the boxes conveniently arranged above the bags Ior
the accommodation of newspapers, and which can be quickly emptied by
the simple expedient of raising the front. At the rear end is a table, the full
width'of the car, and behind this are the hundreds ojE pigeon holes into which
the clerk must distribute the letters for the various towris,.quickly, almost
automatically. At his feet as he "stands at his table, the clerk has a tray into,
which theletters posted when the train is at a station, drop. These letters he
stamps and distributes with those put on the train at the terminal. Cord with
which to tie the letters info bundles is conveniently at hand, and if some-of
the bundles contain registered mail they are placed into the pigeon holes
at one side, over which a;wire grating is fitted and locked.: Everything is
scrupulously clean. " f   - .'
The baggage and express end of the coaches is also the last word in car.
construction. As with the mail section/the doors open in the centre of the
compartment, one half of which.Has a solid floor, the Other half being fitted
with fish racks. In addition' to the conveniences afforded the mail clerks,
the baggage men have a folding table which fits tightly against the 'wall
when notin use, and which may be utilized as a dinning table and ������ but no!
thereis too much business to talk of cards. "'"'" "  ^
The twelve new cars were designed by C. H. Temple, Chief of Motive
Power and Rolling Stock, Canadian Pacific Railway, and were constructed
by the Canada Car and Foundry Company, Ltd., Montreal.   They;are
designed to carry 3.0 tons of express matter and 10 tons of mail, a total of
40 tons; compared with 30 tons, the capacity of the old type of coach. The
Company has adhered to the six wheel truck, but heavier, journals have
been provided, 5H by 10 in place of the. 5 by 9 inches. -Another feature
of the new coaches is the diaphragm ends.. This eliminates the danger of
people "riding blind". "     - ......      ?    .-
** Until more are constructed, the new coaches will operate between
Montreal and Toronto, Montreal and Sault Ste. Marie, Toronto and St.
John, N.B., and Winnipeg, and Edmonton bn Canadian Pacific lines.
Mrs. E.,Crowe, of Whiteliorse Rond, Croydon writes:���."I am pleased to tell you that the
small tin of ointment you sent to meat Ventuor.
his proved a complete success, my hearing is
now quite normal, and the horrible head noises
have ceasi'd. The action of this new remedv
tnust be , very remarkable, .for I have been
