last Friday from Rock Creek

Gus Evans has more brains
probably than any other Liberal

the other fellows scalp. He also
owns a remarkable ranch at the
Forks. When he wants to sell it,
it contracts to half an acre.
When he wishes to hire a man to
plow it, it expands to fiye acres.
Gus rises- and sets with the Sun.
He is one of the leading humorists of the western cent belt, and
his pungent paragraphs are highly appreciated by all. lovers of
satire. He would make a good
Liberal candidate at the coming
election.

Granby's Favorites
The people of Phoenix are perplexed to know why the Granby
employs so many foreigners in its
mines, when so many ��Engli_m
speaking' men cannot get employment. No one blames the foreigners, even if some of them $re
belligerents, for getting a job if
they can, but why this preference
over the English? The Granby has
received considerable praise for its
patriotism in starting np its Phoe-
nixrmines last December, (at 25
percent, less wages) in. order to
help out the poor hard-handed
workingman. This action was
commendable and tbe company has
not lost anything by it. But where
does the patriotism come in when
about 75 per cent, of the men underground in Phoenix were born
under other flags. Surely in these
stirring times .when the cry pf
patriotism is so rampant t|ga
English speaking races should have
the preference if their work as
miners and muckers is on a par
with that of foreigners. It* >has
been stated that- English speaking
workmen will not work *at,|he
rougher, harder and mpre dangerous jobs that the Granby .offers.
Mining men say that this is all hot
air. Surely the English are not
lazy or lacking in courage. If the
work is too dangerous, for,intelligent men, then why .r^mit-poor
innocent foreigners to risk.ttyeir
lives to make dividends for kid-
gloved speculators? It is up to
the Granby to explain this question. If it is patriotic-and^.sot
pro-bohunk. whence eoineth-.?$his
lack of love for..4&e AnglorSaxom.?

BLUE AND GRAY
It is 50 years ago tomorrow
since Lee handed his sword to
Grant, and the gray faded into the
blue. Just 50 years since the
Southern Confederacy lost its cause
and the Stars and Stripes again
swished in the breeze of every
state in the Union. The American war was a stirring event that
filled the land with heroes, tramps,
orators, pensioners and Pullman
car porters. It was mainly an
officers war. Out of the million
men we have known who took part
in it, only one was a private, and
lie could not speak English. The
red hand of Mars broke the heart
of the chivalrous South, and the
blood mark is not yet entirely
washed away. Time in its ceaseless grind will eventually obliterate it, and ere another 50 years
goes over the dump of oblivion,
not one of those brothers, Yank
and Johnny, will be left to tell
how they murdered each other at
Shiloh, Antictam, Gettysburg, and
other battlefields. They will all be
mustered out, and planted under
the grass and flowere, awaiting
Gabe to sound the bngle for the
grand march to Saint Peter.
It is reported from the eaBt,
that the game of 500 is a card pastime, used as a substitute for intelligent conversation amongst the
400. 	
Many a man becomes a hero because he is too cowardly to run.
In other words he has more animal
than moral courage.
THE DRY BELT
An American editor wants to
know if it is true that woman put
Pa out of Paradise. We do not
know, but we feel certain that it
was a man who put the dam in
madam.
Kansas has been alcoholically
dry for 30 years, and the governor
of that state says that it has worked out as follows:
"A half million young men
and  women  in Kansas over 21
years of * age have never seen a
saloon in the State.    Since Kansas adopted prohibition illiteracy
has been reduced from 49 per
cent, to less than two per cent.
There   is   only   one  pauper in
every 3,000 population.    Eighty-
seven of the 105 counties have
no   insane, .54 have no feebleminded and  06 have no inebriates.    Thirty-eight   poor   farms
have no inmates.  In July, 1911,
fifty-three    county    jails,  were
empty  and  65 counties had no
prisoners serving sentence.   The
county jail at Hugoton has not
had a prisoner for two and a
half years, and the county com- '
missioners have rented the jail
for a residence.   Some counties
have not called a jury to try a
criminal casein ten years.   In
one Kansas county there has not
been a grand jury called in 25
years.   In 1880 the bank savings
deposits  in   Kansas were $30y-
000,000.   Today they are $200,-
000,000.     Kansas  stands   first
among all the States in the per
capita valuation of the assessed
property.    During the panic of
.   1907 Kansas sent $50,000,000 to
New York to relieve the money
market, while her wet neighbor,
Missouri,   Bent   nothing.     The
death rate in Kansas has dropped from seventeen to the 1,000
*in 1880 to seven and a half to
the 1,000. Kansas is the healthiest state in the Union."
Satan is cute.   He travels under
every flag and laughs.
The bull moose does nofe
very    high   when   milking time
comes.
TnE conflict between evil and
good makes life interesting and
without interest we die. When
universal peace reigns, and booze,
gamblers, Cyprians, as well as all
other wicked people and things are
defunct, the human race will become extinct. Angels are out of
place on this mundane sphere, although we like to meet one occasionally. 	
Wah stamps on letters will go
into effect in Canada on April 15.
This will cause, at least for a time,
a lot of loss, delay and confusion
to many. All letters and post
cards without the necessary stamps
on will be sent to the dead letter
office. The intention is to put two
cents postage and a one cent
war stamp on each letter; but
while three cents in postage will
carry a letter through,- three cents
alone in war stamps will not. Less
red tape, and more horse sense
would simplify matters.
Strong Copper
The copper metal situation is
growing stronger day by day, The
month of March showed the greatest domestic deliveries from the refineries in the history of the copper industry. Domestic deliveries
were between 80,000,000 and 85,-
000,000 pounds. Exports to Europe in March will aggregate 70,-
000,000 pounds. The production
of the mines and refineries is only
110,000,000 pounds monthly or
under. The March figures Bhow
an excess of domestic deliveries
and foreign exports amounting to
over 40,000,000 pounds. The surplus copper stocks in the United
States must by now have shrunken
to skeleton proportions.
The entry of Italy into the war
has added another very important
European customer for American
copper. A week ago no less than
9,000,000 pounds of copper were
shipped to Italy alone. All in all
the copper metal situation is the
strongest in several years and
metal men are looking for a price
of 17c. or ISc. in the very near
future. The price of copper is now
close to the 16c. mark.���N. Y.

parson, and is a great favorite with
miners, ministers and millionaires.
A reader wants to know who
buys the tickets for patriotic performances in Phoenix, the English
speaking people out of work, or
foreigners or belligerents? The
Ledge does not know, although the
Granby office staff might be able to
famish the desired information.
Jim Murdoch is in town, and has
a big roll of money. He spent the
winter in Hedley running a flying
machine between the Similkameen
hotel, and the Nickle Plate mine.
One Sunday night while at mass,
a boy poked his head into the
church door, and shouted, "Jim
your Zepp has gone." He had
tied the flier to a pole, and some
wag had cut the guy ropes. In
his hurry to catch it Jim rushed
out of church, upsetting the holy
water, and knocking down fonr
Irishmen who were doing penance.
Jim chased the machine as far as
Keremeos where he lost sight of it.
The same night he walked to
Phoenix and at present is busily
engaged collecting hot air, ��� rope
and war opinions. ��� With these
materials he intends to construct a
huge aeroplane for the purpose of
taking all the foreigners in Phoenix, back to Spokane or Europe.
"Goodbye Jim I Take keer of yer-
self."

Silverton's Meal Ticket
A despatch from Spokane to the
N. Y. Mining Age has the following to say about the Bonanza mine
of the Slocan:
"The Standard Silver-Lead mine
in British Columbia is being 'prepared for resumption of operations.
The management expects to pay
more attention to the production
of zinc rather than lead.
The lead-silver and the zinc-
silver shoots in the Standard mine
occur separately. Standard has
been a rather high-cost producer,
so far as concerns its lead-silver
output. It has been enabled to
register very handsome earnings
through treating excellent grade
ore. When, however, the lead
and silver markets last summer became demoralized by the European
war, the management considered it
a wiser policy to shut down the
mine and save the valuable lead-
silver ores instead of dumping them
on the market. There.was also
granted by this procedure an opportunity for much-needed development work, which the company
could well afford, being in a strong
financial position.
Now that zinc has risen from 5c.
to around 9c, the directors consider it a wise policy.to take advantage of the high spelter market
and operate the zinc portion of the
Standard silver-lead property, conserving the silver-lead ores to a
more propitious condition of the
metal market.
It i& reported that there are ore
reserves blocked out for three
years ahead of extraction.
What is Your Diet?
Canadians eat too much meat.
They are one of the three greatest
meat eating peoples in the world,
Australia and the United States
being the other two. High prices
for meat are coming. The cost of
food as well as its nutritive value
should be considered.
Prof. James Long, the eminent
British authority, recently addressed the following advice to tbe
war oflice:
''Jam has three and a half times
the energy value ef butter. Its
value lies in its richness in sugar���
of: which one-half its weight consults-���in the minerals present in
the skin of fruits, in its laxative
character and its mechanical aid
to digestion.
"The sugar of fruit has a remarkable effect on nutrition. Commercial sugar, if eaten too freely,
causes irritation, acidity and other
freaks of indigestion.
"The most nutritious and useful varities of jam are those made
from plum, apricot, gooseberry and
currant, but a mixtnre of plum
and apple stand at the head of the
list. Jam should not be considered
as a dainty but as an article of
food."
Dr. Frank T. Sbutfe, of Ottawa,
Dominion Chemist, gives us the
following authoritative statement
as to tbe great importance of vegetables, especially fresh or home
grown. The importance in connection with small gardens in
towns and cities is very apparent,
and the subject is opportune at
this time of the year. It may be
that a small garden will keep down
the doctor's bills.
"that many of the ills thai, flesh
is heir to arise from indiscretions
in   diet  is a fact that more of us
should realize���and earlier in life
the better.    Many of us,  and perhaps this applies especially to those
who live in the city, eat too much.
As a result,  we get too stout as
life advances and,   what is   still
more   serious,   an    extraordinary
strain is put on   certain  of   the
organs of the system in nature's
effort  to   get   rid   of   the waBte.
Further, we who live more or less
sedentary lives, eat too much meat;
the man who sits at a desk all day
long or stands behind a counter
may work as hard as the navvy or
ploughman,  but it is a different
kind of work.    It does not call for
the same amount of strong food.
There is no necessity to diet ourselves by formula or to weigh out
what wo Bhould eat, but we ought
to be guided to a certain extent in
our eating by common  sense aud
the knowledge which science furnishes respecting the requirements
of the body for the maintenance of
the vital heat, the  development of
energy and the repair of tissue.
"As city people we might keep
in better health and live more
cheaply if we would eat less meat
and concentrated foods ami use
more vegetables and fruit. And
thiB advice mighfespecially be emphasized for the summer diet, when
there is not the same call for the
system for the stronger foods.
"Fresh vegetables are wholesome, palatable and productive of
good health. Though in direct
food value vegetables yield a first
place to meats, it must not be supposed they are destitute of those
nutrients which build up the body
tissue and keep the machinery going. It would be possible, though
not desirable, to live exclusively on
vegetable foods. But vegetables
and especially fresh vegetables,
are not to be regarded merely from
the standpoint of maintenance���
though we assert that now-a-days
they would make a very good
showing on the grouud of economy.
Nor need we urge their extensive use ou the grounds simply that
they are appetizing and furnish
variety to the diet. ��� They, in addition to these excellent qualities,
possess a medicinal value; they are
aids to digestion and afford that
bulk or volume to the food necessary for the right distension of the
alimentary tract. Many vegetables
contains salts .which are gently
laxative, relieving constipation,
that scourge that is the forerunner of so many dangerous and not
infrequently fatal, diseases. And,
again, many vegetables, especially
those used in salads, have a special
value in cooling the blood and, are,
therefore, most welcome, especially
in the summer season.
"Fresh vegetables are vastly superior to those that are wilted from
keeping a day or two, in succulence, crispness and palatability.
To be enjoyed at their best, vegetables must be eaten strictly fresh.'(
At North Vancouver, Harry
Stevens was fined 850 for driving
an auto while drunk. The law on
thiB point is laxative in many parts
of the interior.
Getting the Habit
Farmers and townspeople all
over the country are rapidly adopting the new policy of using writiog
paper and envelopes with their
names and addresses neatly printed
thereon.
It has many advantages. It
prevents the numerous errors in
the spelling of names, insures correctness of address, and guarantees
the prompt return of your letter in
the event of non delivery.
It is no more expensive than the
buying of stationery in small lotB
in the old way, and adds a distinctive, air of respectability and refinement to every home.
It is a good thing and has come
to stay���and grow.
