The Peace Boom
Real estate gamblers, boosting
newspapers, inflammatory literature, and the ungovernable sheep
element in human nature, are responsible for what iB happening at
Peace River Crossing at this hour.
We Bpeak what we do know. People are flocking in from all directions, especially from towns where
that quota of citizenB eager to get
rich quick can't wait. In Edmonton they say the rush is in hundreds daily from everywhere.
That'san'exaggeration.\ Still the
numbers are alarming enough.
The new hotel is like a sardine box
ut nights. Men sleep in beds,
floors, passages, halls, kitchen,
parlor, dining room, and heaven
knows where. Blankets are lent
out at a dollar a pair.
Real estate is once more driving
people who are talking better than
working, quite crazy, and no wonder. When a stranger goes in
with a bunch of notes and buys at -
$200 today, and sells it two days
later lor $��00, it is but natural that
something akin to the gold disease
smites the imagination of the speculator. The big men, with the
land in acres, are at their old and

An Observant Child
The car was crowded, and the
occupants were listening with delighted interest to the "high-
toned" conversation of two stylishly dressed ladies, one of whom
was accompanied by a very small
boy.
Soon every one around knew,
without asking that one of the
ladies had .recently moved into a
"larger house, farther west."
"Do you know, dear," she was
saying, we had such a trying time
getting things into order on the
last occasion we removed that this
time we jnst handed the house
over to" (naming a first-class firm
of honse furnishers,) "and they
did everything. My husband and
I went touring until things were in
order."
Her confidences were interrupted by ''Sonny" shouting:   "Oh,
Kagl0 |mommy, look."
"He is such an observant child.
What is it?" she continued.
"Seel" he cried, pointing to a
smart looking   indivdual in  the
pavement, "there's the man who

[tare money." THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.

Tried to Tell Her
Thinking Themes
Passionate love is the flavor of
most novels and short Btories the
works of the painter and sculptor
are full of it, and the highest
music a-tremble with it.
Not long ago I sat in a London
theatre where a drama of love
was performing. It suddenly occurred to me to look round at the
audience. My fiwt impulse was
to smile, for most of the people
were of middle age or past, and it
all seemed incongruous.
My second thought waB more
sober. Here, it seems, is the
whole world hovering about at one
flame. The normal thing, of
course, is for love to lead to mar
riage. What proportion of the
average play-going, or even church
going crowd have realized this
normal consummation in (heir own
lives?
Our civilization puts rank, financial prosperity and station in life
as the goal of effort. Marriage has
a deal to do with these. Tet, bnt
a negligibly small number of marriages can be arranged with these
ends in view, and at the same
time with paenonate love at. the
The snrefootedness of the mule
is proverbial, but the feats of this
animal are rivalled by those of tbe
pack horses by the Dominion Forestry Branch surveyors in the wild
timbered regions of Northern Canada and the Rocky Mountains.
Laden though they are with
"grab," as the surveyor terms
provisions, these horses can swim
wide rivers, or shallow ones, or
follow the men of the party over a
single log, often no more than a
foot in diameter, which bridges a
deep narrow mountain gorge where
a fall would mean instant death or
worse. ~ They can even follow the
foresters through the sloughs, mue
kegs and wind-thrown brule char
acteristic of tbis northern forest,
which is saying a good deal for a
mere horse, for as one of the forest
surveyors writes from the primeval
forest near Lesser Slave Lake, ''A
forester needs to be here, besideB
all other professional titles, a real
bushman, an axe-man and a
jumper."
There were eight forest-9urvey
parties engaged in demarking forest and agricultural lands in the
far west last summer, and their reports which will appear in the
annual report of the Director of
Forestry, Ottawa, contain accounts
of actual adventures which rival
the most fictitious. The total area
examined last- summer was about
11,000,000 acres, some on the
rough elopes of the Rockies, some
in the rocky areas of Manitoba and
Saskatchewan and some in the
low lying and muskeg region of
northern Alberta. Very little land
was found fit for agriculture in
these region,, and most of it is
recommended as forest reserves.
The present area of the Dominion
Forest Reserves is 23,017,50.
acres, or nearly 36,000 square
miles. If all present recommends
tions for reserves are approved by
Act of Parliament the area will be
doubled. In comparison, tho
National Forests of the United
States cover an area of 257.855
square miles, yet Canada is larger
than the United States and con
tains larger land areas fit only for
tree growth.
The same meddlesome officious-
ness, the same fanatical unreason,
the  same unaccountable bigotry,
the same hypocritical  Pharisaism
that impelled our hard-headed New
England forefathers to attempt to
enforce by statute their peculiar
ideas of   propriety and   religious
conduct, are impelling men of today throughout this country, supposedly dedicated to liberty and
freedom,   to   enforce   their   own
peculiar ideas and notions on their
fellowB.     This strange  characteristic of human nature is notably
in evidence iu one particular little
community of this state that has
won a  nation-wide reputation for
progress.    In Wenatchee the dominating element, having full  and
unchecked sway, ordains that Sunday shall be sombre,  dull, dreary,
dreadful day.    All the  recreative
amusements designed to  entertain
and revive a busy, weak-worn people are prohibited on this arbitary
Sabbath. [No movies, no base ball,
no sports or pleasures common  to
healthy,    normal  Americans,  are
permitted���not even trap shooting
for the few who delight in taking
the one opportunity open to them
by reason of their business cares to
indulge in this innocent pastime.
This  highhanded   and   autocratic
violation of the personal rights of
the individual   is not  the   ukase
of an unbridled despot, but the expression   of a   majority under a
pure,   recall-referendum-initiative
democracy.
Perhaps, sometime, in the ages
to come, men will learn that no
code of civil law or system of statutory prohibitions that may be devised by them can succeed in doing what the laws of God and the
beautiful and lofty teaching of tbe
Messiah fail to accomplish, They
may learn that religion is greater,
than a man-made creed, that

HAIR DOESN'T DIE
IT HAS TO BE KILLED
Hair often continues to live and grow
long after the death of the 1>ody. But it
is often killed through the neglect of
misuse. Almost always the woman or
man whose hair is falling out, or is
stringy, lifeless or dull looking, is entirely to blame because of not giving it
proper care. It is easy to take care of
the hair. Use Harmony Hair Beautifier
to make it glossy, soft and si1ky,���a_cl
Harmony Shampoo to keep hair and
scalp thoroughly clean. It is delightfully perfumed with tnie rose. Sprinkle
a little on your hair each time before

THIS NEW MEDICINE
SAVES YOU MONEY
"We are druggists right here in your
town and making a living out of the drug
business, but it is because people have to
have drugs and not because we like to see
people suffer���we don't. Our duty is to
render the best service we can, aud when
someone is ailing, we are interested iu
seeing them take the best medicine there
is for their particular trouble. We don't
recommend "cure-alls." as we don't believe their are such things. We don't
want you to spend more than you have
to. Some of you get small wages, and
when you're sick, none at all, aud you
should get the most you can for your
money.
We recently came across a new remedy
for increasing strength and building up
people who are run-down and emaciated.
We know that a slight trouble sometimes
grows into a serious one, and to stop it in
the beginning, will save you money in
the end. This new compound is called
Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion. It is the
best remedy, when you are run.down,
tired out, nervous���no matter what the
cause. It doesn't merely stimulate you
and make you feel good tor a few hours,
but takes hold of the weakness and
builds you up to a healthy, normal condition. It is a real nerve-food tonic and
builder of good blood, strong muscle,
good digestion. It contains Hypophos-
phites, which tone the nerves, and pure
Olive oil, which nourishes the nerves, the
blood and. the entire system. Pleasant to
take. Contains no alcohol or habit-form
ing drugs. We promise that if you are
not perfectly satisfied with it, we'll give
back your money as soon as you tell us.
Sold only at the more than the 7,000
Rexall Stores, and in this town only by
us. $1.00. J I,. White, Druggist, Greenwood, B.C,

Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is getting bad,

If there be, 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,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so well.

Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise.''

The mineral production for the province from 1852 to 1913 inclusive
shows an aggregate value of $460,137,000. The production of metale,
coal and coke in the Kootenay and Boundary districts of British Columbia for the year 1913 amounted to the grand total of ��20,629,315.
The following dividends were paid by some of tbe Kootenay-Boun-
dary mines during 1913: Granby Consolidated -Mining and Smelting
Company, $889,901.90; Standard mine, Silverton, $650,000; Hedley
Gold mine, $360,000; Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company,
$232,176; B.C. Copper Company, SS8.675; Le Roi No..2 $43,000. The
Granby company alone have paid since 1903 to 1913 inclusive dividends
to the extent of $5,376,004.20. It is safe to say that a considerable
portion of the profits of the Granby smelter at Grand Forks has been
invested in the new mine and smelter at Hidden Creek. The same is
true of the B.C. Copper Co., Greenwood. While paying dividends they
have also expended a great deal of money in acquiring new properties
and developing same. The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., of
Trail has not, until the last few years, been paying dividends to any
extent, for the simple reason they have been using th6 profits in the
development of new properties, having large holdings in the Rossland
camp. For instance, they have the War Eagle, the old Le Roi, the
Centre Star, Iron Mask, Josie as well as the adjoining claims, the Molly
Gibson, on Kootenay Lake, the old Silver King at Nelson, the Sullivan
Group at Kimberley. Likewise in the Ainsworth camp and Slocan
district.
It is pleasing to note that all these properties, 8uch as the Le Roi,
Center Star, Silver King, Molly Gibson, the Sullivan and Ainsworth
camp properties were practically considered, from a public standpoint,
more or lessjas played ont mines. Today these properties are estimated
to be more valuable than ever and large producers for years to come.
This has been brought about by capable and economical management.
The wonderful optimism-regarding mining mining prevailing during
1912 and 1913 in the Kooteray and Boundary districts, is, I feel confident, going to be thoroughly justified. The great Standard mine in
Slocan only a few years ago was not tempting enough to keep attached
to it the men who are now foremost in the ownership. The old timer
the Silver King, is again to the fore, giving employment at the present
time to some 85 men. The Slocan Star, that has made many of its
original owners comfortable for life, is, with development of new found
ore bodies, likely to do the same for the present owners. The Molly
Gibson, Kootenay Lake, is another instance of what proper management will do. The early owners of this property were inexperienced
men with insufficient capital to develop properly, consequently it was
sold for a small amount. Today the old Molly Gibson is considered
one of the best silver lead properties in the country.
In the AinBworth camp such mines as the Highland and the Silver
Hoard, the Maestro, the Banker, the old Bluebell, better than ever,
the Gallagher-and the Florence have all been steadily under development during 1913 and considerable ore was shipped.
The Utica mine has passed the stage of a proBpect and is now one of
the coming silver lead properties in the Slocan. The U.S. in Jackson
Basin, near Kaslo, is also becoming a shipper. The Whitewater,, the
Whitewater Deep and the Washington have been highly developed and
will renew shipments, and also many other properties in this .district
located on the K. & S. Railway, which is expected to be ready to handle
oreB from these mines in May. --��� - .;������"."'"���'
Properties around Trout Lake and Ferguson, in the Lardo, have
been receiving development, but not to the extent the properties warrant. It iB a case of lack of capital. On the Slocan lake the great
producing Standard, the Hewitt, Vancouver, Rambler Cariboo, and
Ottawa are all shippers, and there are many.others being developed.
Then we have the Sheep Creek and the Bayonne districts. In the
Sheep Creek district the Mother Lode and the Queen have proven very
profitable, especially the former. The owners, we understand, are trying to acquire further properties with a view to extending their holdings. In the Bayonne district, owing to lack of transportation facilities, no great extent of development, with the exception probably of
the Spokane group, has been carried on this winter.
In .he Ymir district the Second Relief, Wilcox, Yankee Girl and
many other properties are producing at the present time. In the Nelson district the B. C. Copper Company are developing the Victoria
property, making large shipments to their smelter at Greenwood; likewise with the Eureka. Such properties as the Perrier mine, a gold
property, the California and Venus are beinn developed. A few cases
only are cited, but a great many more are receiving the same attention.
Some are large properties and will being turning out immense tonnage
during the year 1914. Others have been worked on a smaller scale by
the owners themselves.
Then we have the undeveloped properties awaiting capital. These
are here in abundance. Take for instance the Bayonne camp. The
large and continuous veins have.been.opened_.upJpa_certain stag^
is a camp of such dimensions that it requires large capital for the initial
development, as it is necessary to have power and mills. There are the
undeveloped mineral bodies of the great Lardo district, covering from
Kootenay lake to Ferguson. Also the Duncan rivec section; there is
the Lardeau district, reaching from the Arrow lakes, where tremendous bodies of all classes of ore awaits development, Also large, valuable bodies in East Kootenay and all through the interior, both in the
Kootenays and Boundary,
Considering the climate; our mineral resources, which I think we
might say are among the best in the world; oar transportation facilities,
considering the mountainous country; the abundance of timber and the
amount of water power going to waste, it is almost an appeal I am
making to those interested in this great industry. The past record of
British Columbia should not count against her. The losses sustained
were due, in many instances, to stock jobbing, impractical management, and a good deal of misplaced faith, as many of those who came
to British Columbia in the early days feo mine had not the practical
experience, but did have control of fehe expenditures, and it was not a
question of mining with them as it was pleasure. Those days are past
and gone. We are now a settled community. Our mining is conducted on a commercial basis.
I have no hesitation in saying that anyone who desires to invest in
mining, if they will have their engineers examine properties, and are
prepared to put up money for development purposes, can procure properties of great merit on a development basis, or lease and bond, at the
most reasonable terms. When we consumate the solution for our complex zinc and lead ores on a commercial basis, we venture feo say that
there is no conntry in the world offering greater opportunities for securing the amount of returns on investments in the development of our
mineral bodies, which cover practically all well known metals, including the platinum group, molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, magnesium, and various earth metals, also large bodies of hematiie, specular
and magnetite iron. The quality and immense tonnage warrants the
buiding of reduction plants. With the increased demand for various
metals the necessity will call for further smelting facilities.
This resume of the mining industry and possibilities for investment

J.  E.  Oppenheimer,   of Butte,
Montana,  in   company   with  his
brother, paid a visit last week to
the   Rocher de   Bode  property.
Mr.  Oppenheimer is   chief stockholder in the owning company and
also in the leasing company under
which   the   present  development
work is being done.   He expressed
himself well-sati-fied with the progress that has been made and was
very pleased to see fehe machinery
all a^ work on the cross-cut tunnel.
It is only a matter of a couple of
months to drive this tunnel and
then the ore shipments will start.
The ore from fehe Rocher de
Boule will be shipped to the
Tacoma smelter where very reasonable rates have been secured. The
freight rates are also expected to
be very reasonable. The ore is to
be shipped in bulk which will save
a great deal of time in handling.
Mr. Oppenheimer went over the
work on the aerial tram which
Halleion, Munro and Sargent are
preparing for. The boys are making good progress and will be ready
before there is ore feo ship.
The case of R. P. Trimble vs
the Rocher de Boule Copper Co.
will come up before the supreme
court in Victoria this month. Mr.
Oppenheimer is reported to have
stated that no matter whether Mr.
Trimble wins or loses the work at
the mine will go on just the same.
A change in the agreement may be
necessary, but most likely the owning campany will be enabled to
finance the project.
In two months more there is no
reason why daily ore shipments
Bhould not be made from the
Rocher de Boule mine.���Hazelton

12 feet wide on top, and 14 feet

is drift bolted  with inch iron, and
thousands   of tons of rocks hold
this water-fortification in position.
A great deal of cement has also
been used, and, as a result,  when
fehe work was finished this week,
practically no seepage was observed.    In the words   of   a   Bridge
River man,  who arrived in town
last night.    "If that dam (goes out

Proprietors,
The Hazelton Coal and Development Co. has been organized in
Vancouver and plans are now
about completed to commence work
upon fehe development of the Kit-
seguekla coal fields. This property
waB staked and fehe early development, work done by J. W. Hart
and Wm. McDonald, both well-
known in this vicinity. The coal
has been tested and found to be
among the best in British Columbia, and those interested in it expect that as soon as they get into
the real coal measures that fehe
quality will be materially improved. Mr. Hart writing to the
Herald, Btated that the company
was ready to put two diamond
drills to work and also put a number of men to work continuing tbe
tunnel work started last year.
The new company proposes to
spend between forty and fifty
thousand dollars thiB season ou
development work. They have
every confidence in their holdings,
and ||as their land is so close to the
railway, and to the Prince Rupert
and New Hazelton it will be a
great boom to the whole northern
interior when developed to the
shipping stage.
Work will be started on the
Kifeseguekla coal field between the
tenth aud fifteenth of May aud
will be continued all summer.���

Dream Mining Company completed a big wing-dam structure on the
South Fork of Bridge river. Great
interest has been taken in this
work by all classes of mining men,
as the reclamation of one-half the
river bed of the stream on the company's property means some big
placer gold clean-ape this summer.
The work has been under the snp-
erintendency of Mr. C. F. Dam, a

more than satisfied with the result of the expenditore, it maybe

'HIS simple rule of health is daily called attention to by every doctor in the land, whose first question to
the patient almost invariably is, "Are your bowels regular?"   Yet there's not oiie person hvfifty who
takes proper care of the bowels.   And the result of this foolish neglect is nine-tenths of all ill-health.
^ K today you are unable to free your body of waste matter at the usual time, or if the act causes straining,
pains and discomfort, don't let that- condition occur again tomorrow.   Unless your bowels can carry away the
waste materials left afterfood is digested, decay- sets in, the poisons of wMch,taJ_en up by_the blood, increase^
the risk of Typhoid Fever, Appendicitis, and many other serious diseases.
In treating constipation, there is a right way and a wrong way. The wrong way is to take harsh purgatives which even though they do clear the bowels, cause griping and nausea, injure the delicate tissues, and
so disturb the normal functions as to cause the return of constipation. The right way is to help Nature to
produce natural movement, without pain or discomfort, by using
