neighborhood of two cars of zinc-
silver ore per month. He also

The Big Tunnel
Last week Wm Patterson, of,
Chicago was in the city., He is the
secretary of the Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway Co. This is the
company that began the driving of
a big tunnel from Greenwood to
Phoenix a distance of three miles.
Work was suspended some years
ago after the tunnel had been
driven over 3,000 feet. The company will hold a meeting in Chicago abont the 1st of September to
arrange plans for the immediate
resumption of operations upon this
great enterprise. At first only one
shift will be employed. The big
tunnel is a favorite speculation
with the Chicago men, and they say
that it is a crime not to reach the
contact. The resumption of Operations at this tunnel means a great
deal to the Boundary district and
the entire province.

It waa reported this summer that
a $40,000 gold nugget, had been
found in the Engineer mine at
Atlin. This was not so. The
story was started through tbe
finding of a pocket of small nuggets on the vein. Such finds are
common in Atlin, and create no
excitement in that camp.
A Boston mam was on his way
West on important business. In
the opposite section of the Pullman
sat a sweet-faced, tired appearing
woman with fonr small children,
and feeling sorry for the mother,
the Bostonian soon made friends
with kiddies.
Early the next morning be heard
their eager questions and the patient "Yes, dear," of the mother,
as _she - tried- to dress them; - and,
looking ont, he saw a small, white
foot protruding beyond the opposite
curtain. Reaching across the aisle,
he took hold of the large toe and
began to recite:
"This little pig went to market;
this little pig stayed at home; this
little pig had roast beef; this little
pig bad none; this little pig cried,
'Wee! wee!' all the way home."
The foot was suddenly withdrawn, and a cold, quiet voice���
that of the mother���said, "That is

Troubles never come singly.
Not a hen has laid a fresh egg in
our backyard this summer.
Tiiekr is too much political pull
in the Canadian army. Many men
through a pnll are holding position., as officers who are unfitted
by nature or training to rule or
command, even a corporal's guard.
Officers should bo appointed
throiigh merit, and not because
their rich relatives or political
dads have a pull with the upper
powers. We hear many complaints about the way the Vernon
(3innp is conducted, and if they are
true we certainly need more brains
to rule and guide our common
soldiers. Speaking on this subject
the Rossland Miner says:
"The scandalous truth of it
must 1)0 told,,is that there is too
much politics contained in the
brew of Canada's military activity. Without qualifications we
see men because of their political
pull, appointed to responsible
positions, where their presence at
a critical time, may, from their
very inexperience, serjously endanger the men under them.
The instance.of a young man
from Rossland who recently obtained a. responsible military
position through political influence, is fresh in the minds of
residents. If it is necessary to
mention other instances, we have
only to cast our eye over the
roster of the iMth Battalion and
note there the name of an officer
who personally may. be a very
nice fellow, but who is absolutely
unqualified to act in the capacity
of paymaster.
Lord Northcliile, while extreme in many ways, has laid his
finger upon a very sore spot on
the naked body of our empire
when he asks if Britain is going

the strength from our virile
Are we content to muddle

Inquiie if the dependents of

Canada is too big and wide
and  free a country to stand for
these thing?, these petty crimes
against    patriotism    that   may
prove so   vital   to the lives of
brave men.    We, as honest and
honorable men,  cannot countenance them  and,  irrespective of
party,    Conservative,    Liberal,
Socialist or Labor advoeatea, we
must devote onr energies to a
policy of co-operation unpolluted
by politics, and which is temper*
" ed  only with the desire to aid
Britain's    righteous    and   just
ideals and principles."

Tue Chesaw News has moved to
Orient. Its editor will have to
keep moving if he expects to make
his paper pay. In small towns
when the novelty of having a
newspaper wears off, it is time
for the editor to move, while the
soles of his boots are intact, and
the walls of his stomach do not
have to brace each other in search
of nourishment.
Suggestions for Sleep
The bedroom should be well
ventilated, a window being kept
open all night, if that can be managed withont a draft playing upon
the Bleeper. Where there is a
chance of drafts ventilation may be
safely accomplished by inserting a
board six inches broad so as to
raise the lower sash and fill the
gap completely. Air then enters
between the sashes in an upward
direction and becomes diffused in a
harmless fashion.
About his bed-bedclothes and
pillow the sufferer from insomnia
must not dogmatize, but try experiments. Sometimes an extra
high pillow does the trick. The
covering should not be excessive,
but the feet must be kept warm���
by an eiderdown across them, a
hot bottle or bed socks���since
chilly extremities are fatal to sleep.
The same latitude must be allowed
in regard to supper. Sometimes
no supper is best, sometimes a
light supper rather more than an
hour before retiring, sometimes a
glass of hot milk or hot gruel when
one is actually in bed.
A short, smart walk before bedtime enables many folks to slip
into dreamland. For others a hot
footbath ;is better. Still more obstinate cases will yield to the soothing effect of a complete hot bath,
with or without some mustard.
"Most people spend so much
time in getting a living that they
have no time to live."
One of the magazines prints these
words in large type in th ^ centre
of the page. The statement is not
only terse and striking, but wonderfully true. It is a common
mistake to lose the end in the
means that lead up to it. Life is
always more than meat and warmth than raiment. It is said that
when men become so busy in making a living that they are disqualified' for living.
Life is a struggle from birth to
death. Especially is this true if a
person seeks to do right. The man
who acts conscientiously will be
sure to run up against the one who
represents craft and graft. The
man ,who fights the drink traffic
will not bo likely to receive boqueta
from the holder of a saloon license.
In view of this it is necessary that
good men should assume an attitude of actual stoicism toward the
criticisms and thrusts of evil men.
A little mud thrown will not hurt
anyone as long as it dosen't stick
to us. A righteously aggressive
man needs to be as good an anvil
as he is a hammer.

A Lincoln Letter
More Money Wanted
The following letter has been
sent to the editor of The Ledge by
the Canadian Red Cross Society of
"Dear Sir���May we enlist your assistance in a Provincial-wide movement to provide the Fifth Army
Medical Corps with surgical and
ambulance equipment in addition
to that provided by the Dominion
Government. This equipment will
be used for the purpose of saving
the lives of British Columbia sol-
diere. The principal item to be
provided will be spocial surgical
instruments, X-Tay apparatus and
powerful motor ambulances; the
latter to convey the wounded soldier from the battle line to the
hospital in the quickest possible
manner, and the former to enable
the surgeons in charge to quickly
and painlessly determine the extent and nature of his injuries, to
locate bullets and shell splinters
definitely; thus euabling their extraction with a minimum loss of |
time and the least amount of
suffering to the soldier.
Many lives have already been
sacrificed because such apparatus
was either lacking or inadeqnate
in amount to enable all the wounded to receive its benefits. Many |
more of our boys will fail to return unless such equipment is
While the enthusiasm for furnishing machine guns is at fever
heat it must not be forgotten that
the saving of our own soldiers is
just as important as the destruction of the enemies troops.
It is estimated that at least $25,-
000, will be required to meet the
exigencies of the case, and the B.
C. branches of the Red Cross
Society and the St. John Ambulance Association have combined
their forces to direct and stimulate
the raising of this amount. All
other patriotic organizations of the
province will join hands with us.
Without the co-operation of the
press throughout the province the
campaign cannot meet with the
success which itB importance deserves.
We realize the -powerful influence that the papers exert, and
appeal to your patriotism to lend
your columns in support of the
cause, which is provincial wide in
extent. In towns and cities where
Red Cross or St. John Ambulance
branches have been established the
treasurers of these societies will be
the natural custodians of funds
collected until they are forwarded
to the central fund in Vancouver.
Where there is no branch of either
society we wonld request you to
co-operate with the Bfayor or
Reeve (as the case may be) with
respect to the funds while the
campaign is in progress.''
No man in history stands out as
possessing a more humane heart or
a greater command of sympathetic
expression than Abraham Lincoln,
the Liberator. It may not be
amiss to recall a letter which he
once wrote to a mother who had
lost five sons in the American
Civil War, and which has long
since taken its place with the
classics.    This is the letter:
((I have been shown on the file
of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of
Massachusetts, that you are the
mother of five sons who had died
gloriously on the field of battle. I
feel how weak and fruitless must
be any word of mine which would
begile you from the grief of a
loss so over-whelming, but I cm-
not refrain from tendering to you
the consolation that may be found
in the thanks of the Republic they
died to save.
"I pray that our Heavenly
Father may assuage the anguish
of yonr bereavement and leave
only the cherished memory of the
loVed and "lost, and the-solemn
pride that must have laid so coBtly
a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom."

added, reassuringly^ "I cried a
little before I came downstairs."���

phrase, "Line's busy!"
It is no longer fashionable to say
"the biggest fish got away." Say
"He struck out."
Always beat- in mind that scales
won't lie, but what has scales to

It is no longer considered the

man wet without and wet within
will soon become waterlogged.
The friend who can row a boat
well, and who likes to do it, is the
one most desirable to invite to your
camp for a week's fishing.
For ladies who love to fish, the
following roles of dress may be observed: if going after blackfish,
were black; bluefish were bine;
whitefish, wear white. If lobster-
ing, wear bathing suit,: any color.

world for a bachelor to get engaged to a young widow; all he has
to do is to give her half a show.
