is located at Greenwood, B. C, and can be traced to many parts of
the earth. It comes to the front every Thursday morning, and
believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. It believes
in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the
king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of
creation is the man who always pays the printer.
The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.
It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and
the county of Bruce. To the United States it is.$2.50 a year, always
in advance.
A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has
oecome deceased, and thafe the editor would once more
like to commune with your collateral.
GREENWOOD, JULY 9, 1914.
We need more hens, more
cattle, and potato patches
in B.C. We have plenty of
land grabbers.
As bar wreckers the
Liberals are a failure in
Ontario. Their platform
was too short.
To reform the human race
it will be necessary to begin
before you have any tots to
put in the cradle.
All people over sixty
years of age, should if nec-
cessary, be furnished with
all they need for nothing.
This Grits in Ontario
must be a tough bunch, when
the people prefer the evils of
the open bar, to handing the
reins of the government to
them.
Some years ago a man in
Kansas copied some passages
from   the   Holy   Bible, and
sent them through the mails.
He was arrested, convicted,
and fined for sending obscene
literature through the mails.
Since that time the Bible in
the United States has been
declared   obscene,   and   any
editor   who   prints   it  as a
continued story is liable to a j
fine of $50, or inprisonment.
Many   so-called   Christians
are constantly shipping tons
of this filthy book to distant
nations,    Why do so, when
ignorant and simple-minded
people are liable to be corrupted through reading this
miscalled word of God. The
Bible is the well of English
literature,  but it  should be
pruned of all errors, obscene
passages and useless literary
dope.    The book  was writy
ten by 333 men and God had
nothing to do with it, any
more than any other book.
These writers were human
and good mixers of swill and
pearls.   For ages,   unthinking   people,    with   parrot
minds,  most of whom have
never read it through, have
looked upon the Bible as a
fetich, much the same as an
Indian regards a totem pole.
We need the philosophy and
common sense rules of living
that   are   set down in this
great   literary   patchwork,
but nothing   more.     When
this  is done the millenmm
will be closer to this   sin-
cursed, and lust-crazed universe than ever before.   Cut
out the rough stuff, and give
the angels a chance to  flap
their invisible wings   amid
the ozone of this mundame
sphere. ,
Many cancers are caused
by over-eating, especially of
meats, and the excessive use
of coffee and alcohol. We
believe that fasting is a good
cure for cancer.
IT is shown by the criminal statistics, that the
clergy have a larger representation in the penitentiaries than any other profession. This is an awful
state of afiairs.
Thinking Themes
What    makes    the    world   go?
What is. the  motive   power   that
causes the myriad activities of men?
There   are  two power sources;
hunger and love.
Watch fehe hurrying crowds in
the cifey streets, the workman in a
huge factory, observe the preen-
ings of the dandy and read the
ravings of the poet; all hunger and
| love.
Some bodily exertion is undertaken merely for exercise, but most
of it for something to eat.
Some wars havo been waged,
some ambitions followed through
storm and flame, some tender
verses written, possibly, from other
motive- than love, but not many.
How small and unstable all tho
intellect has accomplished, compared with the mighty works of
these two wants.
They are eternal as men. They
moved the barbarians in their
damp cave dwellings before the
day-break of civilization; they
will control the race a thousand
years from now more than any
other factors. Schiller's linos are
true:
"Meanwhile    until   Philosophy
sustains
The structure of the world,
0
Her workings will be carried on
By hunger and by love."
���Dr. Frank Crane.
Scotch Stories
THERE^is a commotion in
London. Billy Hearst has
bought the Pall Mall Gazette, and now owns "three
papers in that city. He has
not yet bought the Greenwood Ledge and the empire
is still safe.
Life is a blissful dream
these days. Now is the
summer of our content,
made glorious by the blooming of roses, spuds and other
things, while the birds are
singing and the hens are
laying in our backyard.
What more do we need?
Socialism and all other
schemes will never reform
the world. We must begin
at the beginning, and reduce
the creation of children to
an exact science. The world
is full of misfits, and half
made people, because we
know less about stiripcul-
ture than anything else.
There will be no change for
the better as long as lust and
ignorance rule the universe,
"David R. Forgan, president of
the National City Bank, Chicago,
always relishes a good Scotch
story. A Scotch astronomer in
one of the Canadian universities,
he says, was describing to his class
a certain star which was so remote that ife looked like a "threepenny piece 100 miles away."
One of his friends, struck by the
comparison, met him later on the
street. "Professor," ho said,
"anybody would know that you
were Scotch."
"Why?" said the astronomer.
"Why,"   said  the other,   "nobody but a Scotchman would know
what a threepenny bit looks like
100 miles away.',
Then he told another thus: "A
Scotchman, an Irishman and an
Englishman were on a train. It
had been a long journey, but they
reached their destination at lasfe.
All three got out. The firsfe
thing the Englishman did was to
look for some place to eat in. The
Irishman cast about in search of a
place to get something to drink.
The Scotchman went back through
the train to see if anybody had
forgotten anything.
A Woman's Essay on Man
A boy can sit still on a sled six
inches square, tied to a sleigh moving eight miles au hour; but couldn't sit still on a sofa five minutes
for a dollar. A man will sit on an
inch edge of a board and talk
politics for three minutes; put him
in a church pew for forty minutes,
get nervous, twists and ' turns and
goes to sleep. A man will pouch
his cheeks with filthy tobacco,
juice runs down to his chin, feels
good; but a hair in the butter kills
him. He stays oufe till midnight,
wife don't know where he is; comes
home when he pleases, but if a
meal is not ready just on time,
pouts, frowns and says unpretty
things. Evidently man is a strange
animal. Gets full, beastly drunk,
imagine'- he's rich, a great man,
bets on tho losing horse, gets
broke, quarrels, fights, lands in
jail, eyes dressed for Easter, face
frescoed, morals depraved, yet he
is "Lord of all creation and monarch of all ho surveys." Strange
animal, this Man.
His Precious Soul
He was a highly moral man,
His eyes possesssed an upward roll;
He seemed to think of nothing but
The future glory of his soul,
He had no time to stop to pat
A little child upon the head;
His hopes were all of splendor that
Should be his after he was dead.
The beauty of a maidens face,
The splendor of a tree in bloom
He noticed not because his thought
Was of rewards beyond the tomb.
The spreading ocean's majesty.
The glory of the sunset sky,
Were things he had no eyes to see,
His dreams were of the by-and-by.
The warbling of the birds in spring
Was noise to him but nothing more;
He closed his ear 'till he might hear
The harps upon the golden shore.
His lips were never shaped to mirth,
Gloom settled everywhere he went;
He merely lingered ou the earth
As one who served imprisonment.
He never broke a woman's heart.
He never robbed and never slew,
He kept the law but never saw
A rainbow in a drop of dew.
The world has naught that came from
him |
Beside his tomb uo mourners sit;
I wonder if they had to trim.
His heavenly garments down to fit?

OLD FASHIONED MOTHER.
Thank God, some of us have, and others have had, an
old fashioned mother, Not a woman of the period, enameled and painted, with her great chignon, her curls and
bustle; whose white jewelled hands never have felt the
clasp of her baby's fingers; but a dear old fashioned, sweet
voiced mother with eyes in which the love light shone and
brown hair threaded with silver, lying smooth upon her
faded cheek. Those dear hands worn with toil, gently
guided our tottering steps to childhood and smoothed our
pillow in sickness; even reaching out to us in yearning tenderness, when her Sweet spirit was baptised in the pearly
spray of the river, Blessed is the memory of an old fashioned mother. It floats to us now like a beautiful perfume of some woodland blossoms. The music of other
voices may be lost but the entrancing memory of her's will
echo to our souls forever. Other places will fade away
and be forgotten, but hers will shine on until the light
from heaven's portals shall glorify our own.
When in the fitful pauses of busy life our feet wander
back to the old homestead, and crossing the well worn
threshold, standing once more in the low, quaint room, as
hallowed by her presence, how the feeling of childish innocence and dependence comes oyer us, and we kneel down
in the motten sunshine streaming through the western
window���just where, long years ago, we knelt by pur
mother's knee lisping "Our Father." How many times
when tempters lured us on has the memory of those sacred
hours, that mother's words, her faith and prayers, saved
us from sin. Years have filled great drifts over her and
us, but they have not hidden from our sight the glory of
her unselfish love.

HOW TO GET RICH.
Live up to your engagement.
Earn money before you spend it.
Never play at any gaiie of chance.
Drink no kind of intoxicating liquor.
Good character is above all things else.
Keep your own secrets if you have any.
Never borrow if you can possibly avoid it.
Keep yourself innocent if you would be happy.
When you speak to a person look him in the face.
Make no haste to be rich if you would prosper.
Save when you are young and spend when you are old.
Avoid temptation through fear you may not withstand it
Small and steady gains give competency with tranquility
of mind.
Your character cannot be essentially injured except by
your own acts.
When you retire to bed think what you have been doing
during the day.
If your hand cannot be usefully employed, attend to the
cultivation of your mind.
If one speaks evil of you let your life be so that none
will believe him.

of which Mr. Dietrich, of St. Paul,
is the chief owner. The company
is the Lightning Peak Mining Co.
Tbis company is said to have a
showing of 10 inches of galena at
the bottom of the shaft, with assays
running as high as $300 per ton.
Native silver is plainly visible.���
Victoria Week.
Mining at the Granby is to be
done on a more extensive scale than
ever. The latest equipment added
for the economic handling of the
output of Canada's greatest copper
producer is a 40R electric shovel,
manufactured by a South Milwaukee, Wis., concern. The mine is
to be agair worked to a large extent by the "glory hole" process.
This electric shovel can tear into a
pile of muck and fairly eat it up.
It can load a 10-ton car in three
minutes, and is capable of handling
1,500 yards of lost ground in 10
hours. It can pick up two yards
to a shovelful, or can lift a rock
weighing 10 or 12 tons. The machines weighs 50 tons, and is propelled by its own power.���The

On the Emancipation in the
Coquihalla Valley, Messrs. Merrick and Thompson are starting a
new tunnel to cut the lead . at a
depth in the original tunnel. It
is anticipated that the new tnnnel
will open up a body of rock sufficient to prove the value of the
lead.
Messrs. Oscar Nelson and Co.,
are doing development on the Blue
Bell property and have uncovered
some excellent showings. The
trail from the road has, been completed to the latter property, affording ready means of access to all
points of the strike.
Some healthy offers of cash for
claims and interests have been
made by outsiders during the past
week, but owners prefer to retain
their claims, under the conviction
that.the strike is of genuine value.
at 23-Mile on the Skagit, work
is being carried on by owners, and
good rock continues to be brought
in from the various properties in
that locality.���Hope Review.
Last Friday Arthur and Wm.
Leverett and Ed. KobBey returned
from the Omineca country after
spending some weeks in the placer
country, and they brought back
some very nice samples of gold
with them. They got in a little
too early and had to wait a while
for the ground to thaw ont before
they could start to work, and then
they were able to work on a week
when they found tbe proposition
different from what they expected.
It was too deep and they were unable to get water on the ground.
They have, however, another place
on their property which is mnch
easier to prospect and they left two
of tbe boys in there to prospect
this summer. They will go to
work again and next spring make
another attempt to get a big cleanup.
On the way oat they met several
parties on the way in, and they
say there are quite a bunch of men
in there tbis year. Ge.erson,s outfit is working sixteen men and have
a good paystreak ready to be cleaned up, bnt for the present they are
working on another prospect, and
will probably not start taking ont
the gold until fall.���Hazelton Herald.
News has been received this week
of several good mining strikes on
Tatapin lake, laying between Ba-
bine and Barns lakes. This is similar to that found in this locality,
but it is said that it carries  higher!
gold values.    The principal loca-;
tors have been  Messrs.   Anderson J
and Boling, but it is reported that
there are a dozen men in the vicin -
ity who have made discoveries of
more or less importance.
A new strike bas been made on
the low range back of the Thompson farm, about fifteen miles up the
Valley from Telkwa, by Fred Clark
and Sam Bush.
Five claims were staked by the
original locators, and quite a few
additional have been recorded by
other prospectors attracted by the
strike.
The mineralized area lies about
six miles in an easterly direction
from __.nock_.olt, a station on the
G. T. P. about midway in the
Buckley Valley, and is also about
two miles from the main Government wagon road. The claims are
all below tho timber line. The ore
a copper sulphide, is plainly visible
along the lead, and shows in stringers from an inch to ten inches in
thickness all through the vein,
which varies from two to ten feet
in width.
Indications point to this sulphide
ore carrying enough gold to make
the property worth a considerable
bit of development work, considering its nearness to transportation.

Queen's Hotel Block.
I would be pleased to handle any commissions for my
friends and others who desire to transact business in
the oil fields of Alberta. The
chances are good for legitimate speculative profit, but
every well will not be a gusher. It will be our endeavor
to handle those stocks issued
by companies with reputable
directorates and whose holdings are of a nature that
give reason for success. Following this policy the chances may be good, but it is always a chance, a chance to
lose and a'Chanceto win, like
every other business one
might enter. By investing
now, when Companies are
honestly working, it is a
chance for the rich and the
poor. But when oil has been
struck on a well, or there are
good properties near a well
of that character, the stock
of those companies are for
the men with plenty of money
to spare.
A FEW DONT'S.
Don't buy Oil Shares when
you need the money for home.
Don't borrow money to buy
oil shares.
Don't buy oil shares and
stand off your local merchants.
Don't be sure you are a
rich man when you have
bought oil shares.
Don't fail to bear in mind
that every Cil Field Shares
have been from ten cents to
dollars, and dropped to nothr>
ing; and on the other hand,
they have gone up to hundreds and thousands of dollars. Stocks like the Monarch, once one dollar now
forty; the Dingman, once one
dollar now eighty five dollars;
the Southern Alberta, once
one dollar now eight dollars;
the Black Diamond once one
dollar now six and a half dollars; the Stokes-Stephens,
once twenty five cents, now
forty two cents, This illustrates the chances, but the
failures are also to - be taken
into consideration. It is an
investment pure and simple,
in which the element of
chance largely predominates
but if you win you generally
have an opportunity of winning big. If you can afford
to invest you can afford to
to take a chance���if you cannot afford to take the chance
you cannot afford to invest.
I want your business but I
want it on the square.

A traveller in New England saw
tbis sign on a fence: "Horses
taken into grass. Long tails,
$1.50; short tails, $1.00" He
stopped and asked the owner of the
land why there was snch a difference in the price of board for
horses. "Well, yoa see" said the
man, "the long tails can brash
away the flies; bnt the short ones
are so tormented by them they can
hardly eat at all."
