GREENWOOD, AUGUST 27, 1914.
Mars is to bat, and making many bases on balls.
We would'rather strike'a
mine near Princeton than in
the North Sea.
The war will be over
when Germany runs out of
beer, cabbage and Hmburger
cheese.
M ost people eat too much.
Eat just a few ounces less
every day, and your health
will be better and there will
be no war prices for food.
We know some people
who by word of mouth would
face a thousand cannons in
defense of their country,
who have not the courage to
pay the editor the small amount they owe for their
paper.
The labor unions should
take notice that the soldiers
in Europe are working for
very small wages, and some
of them are working more
than eight hours a day. If
these things cannot be settled by arbitration a general
strike should be called.
Thinking Themes
We do net hate the one who
tempts as to do wrong, we often
love him; we hate the one who tries
to make as do better.
Tbe boy Hkee Hackelberry Finn
who entices him to idleness and
looseness; he hates the teacher
who keeps him at his useful
tasks, and the goody-goody girl
who tells him be must not do this
or that.       "r
The ehuroh often elevated to
power those who did their utmost
to degrade it. and persecuted those
who sought, to purify it.
No historic hate is much keener
than that of a cavalier for a roundhead; the reason was that the
roundhead wanted to improve the
cavalier's P-orals.
A womafr pities her fallen sister,
Beeks to aid her, and even organizes movements for her assistance;
bnt for those other women, they
who profess to be more virtuous,
they have only resentment.
Church members do not hate
slnm people; bat the latter usually
speak Utterly of the former.
The antagonism of the race is
against those who wonld reform it.
So the way we have of pretend-
ing to be worse than we are, and
of putting onr worst foot forward,
is really"�� bid for love: for we feel
that people will be inclined to like
up in proportiooas they feelsnperipr
to as. And anyone who is an I-
am-holier-than-tbon carries a chip
on his shoulder. Tbe only goodness that whw love, that really
conquers men and not repels them,
Is tbe goodness that Is concealed as
much as possible.���Dr. Crane.,     i
Not For Sale
"How much will I sell him  for?
"I wouldn't take a million dollars for that dog; no, siree.
"Why yes, I'll tell yer why I
won't part from him, if yor want
ter hear.   Sit down!
"Well, when my boy was a
baby, nofe more'n a year old, I was
cap'n of a canal boat. We was
tied up on the Hudson river al Albany. The ice was just breaking
up and a-floatin' down stream.
"My wife use' ter put the baby
out ou deck in a clothes basket
'most every day, an' he'd play in
that for hours at a stretch, with
the dog.
"One day she left 'em a second
and went inter the cabin���I'd gone
ashore that mornin'���when, ker���
plunk! overboard went the basket
and baby outer an ice-cake. Whew!
it makes me shiver when I thtnk
of it. They landed right landed
right side up though, thank Heaven!
"Well, sir, that dog barked with
all his might, till my wife rushed
out to see what was up then would
yer believe it?���he jumped in too.
"I came back jest a few minutes after, and my wife was acting
like she'd gone crazy���she was
waven' her arms toward a speck
down the river. I looked! my
heart most stopped a-pumpin'! I
lowered the boat as quick as I
could with my hands shakin' so,
an' we put off.
"I saw a clear strip o' water
ahead an' we made for it as fast as
we could row. When we got within fiffey feet of that baby an' dog,
the ice was closin' in around us.
"I looked over my shoulder!
.There was a big cake of ice a-pilin
on top o' the one where the baby
was an' a-pnshin' the basket toward the edge.
'���The clog wafc a-barkin- like
mad.
"Splash!
*'My wife screamed.,
"The basket and baby was in the
waterl
"That noble dog was onto his
job though, all right. Yes, siree!
He grabbed that baby and held on
like a vise. Managed to keep
heads above water, too, somehow.
'���With superhuman strength we
pushed, broke and jammed our
way through those ice-cakes. In
a few seconds���they seemed like
years���we got to 'em an' hauled
'em both aboard.
"The baby was all right, though
a bit chilled, bnt tbe dog was about
ready ter cash in���couldn't 'av
kept up much longer���could yer,
old boy?
"Sell him? No, siree.

see.
Thero is a touch of pathos in
this little story, told in Forward,
showing how the simplest things
appeal to a really tender heart:
A gentleman was walking with
a little boy at the close of the day,
and in passing the cottage of a
German laborer, the boy's attention was attracted to the dog. It
was not a King Charles, nor a
black-and-tan, but a common cur.
Still the boy took a fancy to him,
and wanted his father to buy him.
Just then the owner of the dog
came home from his labors, and
was met by the dog with every demonstration of joy. The gentleman said to the owner:
"My little boy has taken a fancy
to your dog, and I will buy him.
What do you want for him?"
"I can't sell dat clog," said tho
German.
"Look here," said tho gentleman, "that is a poor dog, but as
my boy wants him, I will give you
five dollars for him."
"Yaas," says  the  German,   "I
knows he is a very poor dog,   and
he ain't wort'   almost  nottin,   but
dere is von leetle ding mit dat dog
vat I can't sell���I can't sell de vag
of his tail  ven  I comes home at
night."
She was a pretty young school
teacher and was reading sentences
to her class, letting them supply
the last word.
"The sphinx" she read, "has
eyes, but it cannot������"
"See!" cried the children.
"Has ears, but ife cannot���"
"Hear!" they responded.
"Has a mouth, but it cannot��� "
"Eat!" came the chorus.
"Has a nose, but it cannot���"
"Wipe it!" thundered the class.
The lesson then ended. ���Ladies

And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,

In reeking tube and iron shard;
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding calls not Thee to guard:
For frantic boast and foolish word,
Thy mercy on thy people, Lokd.

LOWERWS CLAIM
During the 37 months that Lowery'e
Claim was on earth it did business all
over the world. It was the most
unique, independent and fearless journal ever produced in Canada. Political
and theological enemies pursued it with
the venom of a rattlesnake until the
government shut it out of the mails,
and its editor ceasad to publish it
partly on account of a lazy liver and
partly because it takes a pile of money
to run a paper that is outlawed. Ihere
are still 20 different editions of this con*
demned journal in print. Send 10 cents

It is her own fault if a women is unloved and neglected.
That is a harsh statement to make, but it is a fact, Mortal man is a weakling- who can no more resist kindness
than a rose can resist the sun. It is a weak, helpless woman's duty to make herself attractive and pretty in the
very face of discouragement. Call it hypocrisy, tact, fin<
esse, or by any other term, but she must turn in the edges
and make allies instead of antagonists of the people about
her. Spotless neatness, becoming feminine attire, truth,
kindness, cheerfulness, love and the loyalty that restrains
her from speaking ill of her neighbors will make many a
woman lovely, even though she lacks beauty.

The effort at "pleasing mother" should be cultivated in
the childish heart. Early in life they should begin the
cultivation of thought and effort with reference to the
gratification of her wishes and of making her happy. If
they would do this they would find daily opportunities for
speaking kind words and rendering such helpful services
and showing such noble traits of character in dealing with
others, as would gladden the hearts and lighten the cares
of mother in a way too often little thought of. If boys, if
girls, could but realize their indebtedness to their mothers,
they certainly would generally be very much more anxious
about pleasing them. The great men of the world, who
have realized their indebtedness to their mothers, took
great delight in pleasing them. But most of all their noble lives, their courage in doing right and their honorable
achievements in public life were' especially pleasing to
their noble mothers. Hardly a higher tribute can be paid
to any young man's success in life  than   "It pleased  his
mother,"

A CONTENTED SPIRIT
Remember, if you have only what is called an ordinary
home, that the great deliverers of the world have all come
from such a home. And there may be seated reading at
your evening stand a child who shall be potent for the
ages. Just unroll the scroll of men mighty in church and
state, and you will find they nearly all came from log cabin
or poor homes. Genius almost runs out in the third or
fourth generation. You cannot find in all history an instance where the fourth generation of extraordinary people amount to anything. Columbus from a weaver's hut,
Demosthenes from a cutler's cellar, Bloomfield and Missionary Carey from a shoemaker's bench, Awkright from
a barber's shop and he whose name is high over all in
earth and air and sky from a manger.
Let us all be content with such things as^we have. God
is just as good in what he keeps away from us as in what
he gives us. Even a knot may be useful if it is at the tnd
of a thread. The spider draws poison out of a flower;
the bees get honey out of a thistle, but happiness is a
heavenly elixer and the contented spirit extracts it not
from the rhododendron of the hills but in  the lily  of the
Don't relate to the tired husband all trifling details of
home life. ���
Don't make your home a wailing place.
Don't tell your husband all your troubles; don't tell
them to any one; forget them.

About Float.
Float is not a periodical.'
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and
stories of western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flash days of
Sandon; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead ; how a
parson took a drink at.
Bear Lake in early days ;
how justice was, dealt in
Kaslo  in '93:   how the
'        o
saloon man outprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
roamings of a western
editor among the tender- >
feet in the^cent belt. It
contains the earlyjhistory
of Nelson and a^romance
* of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Send for
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,
postpaid to any part of the
world. Address all letters to

Breathes there a man with sonl so dead
Who never to himself has said:
*My trade of late is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad!"
If there he, go mark him well,
For him no bank account shall swell.
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who never asks for trade,

Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose.

That nothing may disturb his sleep.
Where no rode clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss)

About Copper
There, is every prospect that the
domestic copper aud brass manufacturers will benefit in many ways
by the opportunity the war will
give them to sell their finished products to the.South American. Canadian and other trade that heretofore has been supplied by European competitors. If our mills
can secure this trade the domestic
consumption of copper will increase
very largely. It is understood
that there is sufficient rnaiiufac.ur-
ing capacity in this country to
handle close to 100.000,000 pounds
of copper monthly, which is very
nearly the amount produced by all
the mines within the United States.
Statements are being quoted
and published daily that from 50
to 00 per cent, of the UnitedS tates
copper production is normally ex-
port<ru\ This error is due to the
fact the Copper Producers' Association has been in the habit of reporting products and imports jointly, and not separately. Only 38
pfr,cent...of the copper produced..in
tlie United States was exported last
year and 02 per cent, was consumed at home.
.'niti-d States production for
!'���]:; was, according to the best
i-onrces of information. l,__2t.,700,-
Ouo pounds. Imports amounted
to ���10.';,_.,0'),u00 pounds arid exports
were st'.!),0(.'-.,7S-i pounds. Thus
we exported the amount of copper
we, imported and also 456,802,784
pounds of our own production. In
addition to the 02 per cent, of our
output which went into consumption at home we drew upon onr
s;.n.ius supplies  to the extent of
THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.
that'ship to war refineries have ar
ranged, so far as heard from, to reduce their production materially.
How* much of the copper we export to Europe is manufactured
there and sold in the various countries of the outside world is not
shown in any published! statistics.
That the amount is very large,
however, is certain. After the
war has continued a month or two
some of this South American, Asiatic, Australian and African demand for finished copper products,
which has been supplied by England, Germany, Belgium and
France, should begin to come to
the United States. In this connection there are great possibilities.
When the war broke out the total visible supply of copper at all
European points was less than 75,-
000,000 pounds. This is about
equal to the amount we were exporting every month. Within a
comparatively short time therefore,
those manufacturers of Europe
who otherwise would be able to operate their plants will-be obliged to
shut down because of inability to
obtain copper.
Of course, Europe's future volume of copper consumption is problematical. Business may recover
rather slowly following the war.
Possibly it will be two or three
years before European industry is
back to its former state of activity.
It is quite certain, however, that
immediately after hostilities cease
every consumer iu all of the countries that have been at war will be
obliged to buy a supply of copper
from the Uuited States. Undoubtedly our surplus'stocks of the metal
will then dissappear very quickly
and itjs probable that tbe price of
copper will advance.���Boston

Englishman's Views
One of the most prominent
statesmen in England has the following to say concerning the present war:
"This war, like most wars, is
not a war of peoples but of governments and reigning houses. The
socialists are right in saying that
the masses have no reason for
fighting one another, that they
have nothing to gain and everj'-
thing to lose, that they are fighting in furtherance of the personal
ambitions of the Hapsburgs, the
Hohenzollerns, the Romanoffrf, a
little group of purveyors of military supplies.
"Diplomats tell us that this issue is between the Teuton and the
Slav. But why should the Teuton
and the Slav fight? What has the
Russian peasant against the Ger
man workingraan? Nothing at all.
The fightis not between the Toutou
and the Slav, but between the rulers of the Teutons and the Slavs.
"The rank and file think they
want war today. That is they
think so in Germany and Russia
and Austria and France. We do
not want ib in England, nor does
Italy want. it. Bub the Teuton
and the Slav and the Frenchman
think to day they want to fight.
"They will not think this for
long. The world is too] enlightened for it iu this,' age. When they
see the ruin this war will bring,
they will realize thafe their rulers
led them into it 'Joy their rulers'
own interestsj_nd against those of
the common people.
"Such a war] will mean ��� the destruction of wealth it has taken a
dozen generations to accumulate.
It will mean an indebtedness it
will take a dozen more generations
to pay. It will set Europe���the
world -back two or three centuries. It will cost 2,000,000 or 3,-
000,000 lives. It will weaken the
human race.
The Great Navy
Work is the mission of mankind
on this earth, A day
struggling forward, a day will arrive, in some approximate, when
he who has no work to do, by
whatever name he may be called,
will not find it good to show himself in tbis quarter of the solar
system, but may go and look out
elsewhere if there be any idle planet discoverable. Let all honest
workers rejoice that such law, the
first of Nature has been recognized
by them.���George Bernard Shaw.
Of all the nations caught into
the maelstrom of this European
war, England is safest. England
is most secure���the most commanding figure of them all!
Why?
Austria invades Servia, Russia
invades ?Austria' and Germany,
France invades Germany, and Germany invades both 'Russia and
France. No nation invades] England,'and there is no talk of invading Englanddjy any nation now
engaged in this colossal war. Invading every other nation, England is immune both from the act
and the contemplation of invasion!
Why?
For five hundred years���since
Sir Francis Drake scattered the
Spanish Armada among the waves
and winds of the English Channel
���no nation has ever invaded England.
Why?
Of all the great capitals of Europe, and of the world, England's
capital of London alone'has never
been entered^by a hostile foe.
Why?
This little kingdom, whose
standing army today is not so large
as that of Switzerland, and smaller
than the standing army of any first
class country, except the United
States, fears the invading foot of
no foreign foe!
Why?
To each of these thrilling, in-
spiring, stupendous facts and its
accompanying question, fehe answer
is the same:
England's Navy is England's
Complete and One Omnipotent Defence���New York American.

Hard times is largely a condition

licence to take and use 20 inches of water
out of Eliolt Creek, winch flows southwest paid drains into Boundary Creel-
about 7 miles south-west.
The -water will be diverted from the
stream, at a point about 300 feet from
corner of lot 1223 and will be used for
domestic purpose upon the pre-emption
described as Number 1235. This notice
was posted on the ground on this 10th day
of August, 19.4. A copy of this notice
and an application pursuant thereto and
to the "Water Act, 1914," will be filed in

Wake Up!
What are we doing to protect
them? Each bridge over 100 ft. in
length should have an- armed sentry on duty protecting it day and
night. We are at war, people!
Not playing baseball.
A writer in the Toronto Globe
makes these observations and then
he concludes: "Every member of a
race hostile to us should be forced
immediately to register, and a
passport should be issued to him
without which he dare not leave
his residence. Onr foes should
not be permitted to travel without
authority, and they should report
immediately on arrival at their
destination; must be indoors at
dusk. Anybody disobeying these
orders to be court-martialed and
shot as a spy. The Germans are
killing men in broad daylight without asking a question. And yet,
we are allowing these, our foes, to
roam at large, enjoy the same facilities and rights of citizenship as
ourselves, seek and procure all the
information they can at the Chateau Laurier, Ottawa, and elsewhere for use against us and our
allies.
As Others See Us
The New York Globe says,
"Great Britain's attitude throughout the whole affair has been above
reproach." There is no doubt at
all that this is the opinion of all
disinterested judges, and we have
little doubt that intelligent Germans in Germany wonld say the
same thing if they knew all the
facts. The Spokesman-Review, of
Spokane, sees the hand of Providence in the course which Britain
has taken.    Ife says:
"England could not honorably
or sagaciously do else.than she has
done. *a IVhave left helpless Belgium to its fate would have been
cowardice, folly and shame. The
Teutonic menace to the peace of
Europe has to be met and must be
confronted byj some power. German professions of good faith and
sincerity connot be trusted. In
fehe providence of God it has fallen
to Britain to withstand William of
Germany as she a century ago
withstood and overthrew Napoleon
the Great."
It is a bitter commentary upon
fehe wisdom of anarchists that they
have let the greatest menace to the
peace of the world go ""unpunished
while killing peacefnl rulers on
every hand.���Montreal Mail'
