That there is no branch of
the Patriotic Fund Association

not represent the sentiment of

been shown on two occasions that

very generously. The funds
raised by the ladies of Greenwood
and by the Rebeccahs shows this
It is now up to some person to
call a meetiug and form a brancu
of the Patriotic Fund Association.
We notice that throughout the
province liberal use is being made
of the press for advertising the
call for funds. It is a tacit ack-
nowledgmen of the value of advertising through the press. Any
cause to succeed must be advertised and there is no medium like
the papers. In this case the
Ledge will donate any space required free of charge. It will be
necessary of course to supply the
copy.
One of the striking things
about the Canadian Patriotic
Fund is that it will apply to the
dependents of Russian, Belgium
and-French soldiers who have
been living in Canada before the
call to arms and whose dependents are stilly here. Thisis'as it
should be, for they are all fighting in a common cause and deserve the assistance as well as
the thanks ot Canada.

The enterprising farmer stops

A newspaper must be something like the Apostle had in his
mind when he said, "Be all
things to all men." The reporter
may not be personally a champion
of card parties, base ball, dances,
or other amusements, yet thev
must be recorded; neither is he
necessarily a church member because he mentions the good work
of revivals and advocates morality
but prints all things of all kinds
of news. Personal quarrels,
scandals, or ordinary drunks are
not news, and ought not, as a
rule, be scattered broadcast as
news.

James B. Haggin, who   died  at
his home in Kentucky on Sept. 12,
was born in Harrodsburg, E_y.,   in
1827.      He   was   associated  with
Marcus Daly, Senator Hearst aud
Lloyd Tevis in  the beginnings of
the great Aaacouda mine afe Butte
and the original   Anaconda   com
pany.    It was   the willingness of
Messrs. Haggin and Hearst to back
with their  money  Marcus   Daly's
faith in  Butte as a great copper
camp which developed and   revealed to the world the great wealth of
Anaconda hill.    II? was also interested in many mining propositions
from Alaska to Fern.    More  than j
30 years ago the 13. 0. government
offered   Haggin   and   Hearst    six
townships of lai.d if they would develop the Bluebell rain..1 on Kootenay lake.    They paid a visit to  the
property and made plana   to  build
a town where Nelson now  stands,
bat for some reason nothing further
was done.    This  information  was
given to the writer by Billy Hearst
of the Frisco Examiner  and  nine
other papers.

During tho present war the
Ledge had a terrific combat with
the enemy, losing its right wing
and 14 columns of live ones in one
engagement. The carnage was
awful, the firing line being strewn
with dead ads. from flank to flank.
Whole regiments died in the
trenches from cold feet, while
battalion after battalion of delinquents were obliterated. The
bankroll was shelled with great
vigor but was saved by re-in-
-forcements from distant camps.
A great effort to turn the heart of
the opposing forces was only partially successful. The blue pencil
kept the news from many, while
the bulldog escaped in an aeroplane.
The eggs in the backyard were
shelled by a squad of coons, and
the entire hen brigade taken prisoners. The flag of the Ledge still
waves, although the fire of its
great ally���the smelter���was silenced some time ago. Backed by
a email band of patriots it expects
to keep marching on, until the
formation changes and its patrons
discover a paneeea for heart failure.
The zinc production of Missouri
In 1913 was 124,963 short tons,
valued at $13,995,856.
The opening of the Panama Canal, the necessary establishment of
American lines of transportation to
South America, Australia, and the
Orient, and in tho present crisis
the large dependence of those continents on the United States for
their supply of ziuc all. make for a
quick commercial introduction of
the products of tho United States
zinc industry to those continents���
an introduction which under other
conditions might have taken years
The effect of the war on the lead
situation is as yet uncertain, but
it would seem that the conflict
must ultimately enhance the price.
All exports of lead as well as of
copper and zinc have been forbidden by the British Government,
which has requisitioned all visible
Bupplies, eo that no lead is now
available for the English consumer.
Great Britain will apparently be
the best market at present for
American lead, although the lead
now imported,into England comes
mostly from Spain and Australia,
and so long as ocean transportation is available it will naturally
continue to come from those countries. In 1913 the imports of lead
into Great Britain exceeded her
exports of lead by over 180,000
short tons.
To Be Used Together.
A druggist lately received a hurried call from a small girl, who desired to purchase liniment and
some cement.
'Liniment and cement?' repeated
the pharmacist, puzzled by the unique order, 'Going to use 'em at
the same time?'
'Yes,' promptly replied the
youngster, 'Ma, she hit pa with a
pitcher.' -Chicago Ledger.
Herring and Halibut.
"To uplift get underneath," Baid
George Ade. "That ia employ a
friendly spirit.   Don't condescend.
"A lady in a trolley ear employ-
edja wrong spirit too other after*
noon. She stared at* ragged urchin across tbe aisle with unspeakable disgust.   Then she said:
"Have you got a pocket hand-
keechlef, bub?"
The ragged urchin snuffled and
then be answered with a grin:
"Teem, but I ain't allowed to
lend it."
A% respectable people are not
good,
It is only in recent . years that
halibut have oeen taken in com
mercial quantities on the British
Columbia coast, and, so far, the
packing of sardines is practically
an untried enterprise. The herring
which are caught in large quantities, are now mainly used as bait
in the halibut fisheries, and for
that purpose only the larger fish
are kept. Nothing is done with
the smaller ones, which could be
packed for sardines. There are,
along the provincial coast, scores
of fine sites for sardine factories,
where the fish could be caught in
adjaoent waters in unlimited quantities and at small expense.
That bright popularizer of med-
i��.al science, Dr. H. 8. William:-),
recently told what he thinks must
lesult from indulging excessively
and habitually in alcohol ''I am
bound to believe," he said on the
evidence (of scientific investigation) that: (1) You are tangibly
threatening the physical structures
of your stomach, your liver, your
kidneys, your heart, your blood
vessels, your nerves,, your brain.
(2) You are unequivocally decreasing your capacity for work in
auy field, be it physical, intellectual or artistic. (3) You are, in
some measure, lowering tbe grade
of your mind, dulling your higher
aesthetic sense, and taking the finer edge off your morals. (:t) You
are distinctly lessening your
chances of maintaining health and
attaining longevity. (5) You 1
may be entailing upon your dependents, yet unborn, a bond of
incalculable misery."

Way down South at a certain
well-known golfing retreat lives a
parson whose delight i t is to engage in conversation all those he
meets, and assail them with questions about themselves, oftentimes
offering advice and spiritual comfort. And it happened the other
day that on taking his seat iu a
local tramcar he espied sitting opposite to him a young and pretty
woman, and on her knee a barelegged, rosy-cheeked boy of about
three years. With au engaging
smile the cleric laid his hand upon
the youngster's knees, remarking
jocularly as he did so! "Hal Ha!
whose got nice, round, chubby
legs?
And without a moment's hesitation the boy looked up and Jisped,
"Mummie!"
