THE POOR PORKS
That lively and beautiful
city, Grand Forks, seems to
be out of luck. A day wor<*
shipper in the cent belt recently wrote to the Gazette
of that city, bemoaning the
fact, that the people of the
Forks had been playing ball
with a brass band on a Sunday. He stated that eyen
the bankers and drnggists of
the Forks had climbed down
from the high level of the
moral standard of Canada,
and wallowed in the mire of
Sabbath desecration. Poor
fellows! how wicked they
must be. He says that few
people in Ontario, or the
prairie provinces would care
to settle down in Grand
Forks, if the terrible fact
becomes known that some of
its citizens go fishing or play
ball on Sunday, The parting of the ways has now
come to the Forks. Its fate
trembles in the balance. It
is betweeu the devil, Christina Lake, and a band of
lemon blooded Puritans. If
it declares for a Sunday*
filled with fresh air, baseball, health, music, recreation and good cheer the
Puritans will pass up that
city as a high roller does a
white chip, However all
would not be lost. The
Forks would still hare the
Douks.
Troubles never come sing
ly. When it was recently
discovered that some Doukhobors were employed on C.
P.R. work at the Forks
many of the business men,
filled with indignation,
stormily declared that they
would boycott the C.P.R.,
and route their goods over
the Jim; Hill line. :^The I lid
was blown off of Hades, the
storm increased in fury and
hot air, and the black clouds
of financial ruin were hovering over the C.P.R., when an
astute official of that great
railway appeared upon the
scene  and poured   gasoline
upon the raging sea of public
opinion.     He   simply whispered   that   the   C.   P.   R.
had   not   yet   made   Grand
Forks a divisional point, and
incidentally   remarked   that
Jim Hill   had   a   bunch  of
Douks working on the Phoenix hill.    Then  the   teapot
quit shaking, and an _3holt
silence fell  over the raging
multitude,   as one   by   one,
they went away back and sat
down  to listen  to  the ball-
frogs singing that new song,
entitled,   Nearer  My   Douk
To Thee.

Thinking Themes
I have been reading one of those
dramas of passion the daily press
unrolls before ub daily. Hardly
an issue of the newspaper but there
is some murder caused by the man-
woman feeling.
This particular one was of a
most revolting crime���I will not
describe it.further than to say that
a man most brutally killed his mistress.
There is a kinship between love
and life; and so there is between
lust and murder.
The utter cruelty of Orientals is
a part of their sensuality. Sensualism is a matter of climax, and
killing is close brother to it. The
desire of the Sultan to possess a
female slave he wants, and the desire to bow-string one he has ceased
to want, are nearly the same thing.
Low love is volcanic, spasmodic,
destructive, imbruting. High love
iB a power like sunshine, it abides,
is strong, persistent, creative, ennobling.
By this you shall know real love,
it can endure and wait. The love
that is very near animalism cannot wait, it has no restraint, no repose, no time element.
There can be no real tragedy in
true love; it always triumphs, even
over death.���Dr. Frank Crane.
Neither Stayed !
A certain clever parlor maid hurried to her young lady one evening
and said breathlessly:
'Oh, Miss Fanny, both them
young gents you are engaged to
has called, and they're in the parlor together, and somehow they
have found ont you've been false
to each, and it looks to me as if
there's going to be trouble."
"What shall I do? What shall
I do?" Miss -Fanny moaned, as
her powder puS dropped from her
nerveless fingers.
"I'll fix it," said the clever
maid, after & moment of deep
thought. "I'll go and say you're
crying your eyes out because your
pa has lost all his money. Then
you can keep the one who stays."
"Good, good!" Miss Fanny
cried.
The maid withdrew. Some
minutes passed. Then she returned with a scared face.
"Both gents is gon," she said.

-^Detroit Newa
George Snider, a Petrolia driller,
who has spent a number of years
drilling in Mexico, arrived in town
penniless, on Saturday, after a
very exciting experience.
Mr. Snider and Frank Lawson,
also of Petrolia, have been engaged
in drilling in the Tarapico district,
and, until recently, were not effected by the disturbance, as their
operations were being conducted
under the protection of the British
flag, nailed to the drilling rig.
However, it appears that tho rebels, either collectively or individually, are no respectors of flags
and on April 22nd, the rig was
destroyed and Snider and Lawson
warned to leave tho country and
given only two hours in which to
do so. Profiiting by the experience of Benton, both men made a
hasty exit, Lawson finding refuge
on a British man-of-war, and
Snider on an oil steamer which
conveyed him to Galveston, Texas,
where he arrived clothed in his
working clothes and without funds,
having left everything behind him.
An official of the United States
government to whom he stated his
position furnished transportation
to Detroit and gave him a five
dollar bill and friends in Detroit
furnished transportation here.
When he arrived in Petrolia he
was taken care of by Sam Pollard,
the Petrolia representative of tbe
English company for whom Mr.
Snider was working, and who
cabled to England for part of salary due. Mr. Snider, afGer spending Sunday here receiving the congratulations of his friends on his
escape left on Monday for Oil
Springs where he will rest at the
home of his brother-in-law, Wm.
Cameron.���Petrolia, (Ont.) Advertiser.
Where it Exists
Mrs. Wiggs���John, what is an
absolute vacuum?
Wiggs���An absolute vacuum
my dear, is something that exists
only in your mind.

A Startling Motto
A traveling salesman died very
suddenly in Pitfcsbnrg. His relatives telegraphed the undertaker to
make, a wreath; the ribbon should
be extra wide, with the inscription
"Rest and Peace" on both sides,
and if there is room, "We Shall
Meet in Heaven."
The undertaker was out of town,
and his new assistant handled the
job. It was a startling floral piece
which turned up at the funeral.
The ribbon was extra wide and
bore the inscription, "Rest in
Peace on Both Sides and if there is
room We Shall Meet in Heaven."
One on the Bailiff
A bailiff went out to levey ou the
contents of a honse. The inventory began in the attic and ended in
the cellar.
*
When the dining-room was
reached, the tally of furniture ran
thus:
One dining-room table, oak.
One set chairs, oak.
One sideboard, oak.
Two bottles whiskey, full.
Then tbe word "full" was
stricken out and replaced by
"empty" and the inventry went
on in a band that straggled and
lurched diagonally across the page
until it closed with.J
"One revolving door mat." ���
How He Found the Key
Miss Drcsswell had just returned
after spending a week with,a country friend. Imagine her consternation when she discovered her previously   stocked  wardrobe empty.
"Gracious, George," she said to
her brother, "where are all my
clothes?"
The face of George exhibited all
the known signs of conscious righteousness and he met her gazo unflinchingly.
'Maria,' he replied, consolingly,
"You told me that if I wanted the
key to the billiard room, I would
find it in your bolero. Now I
don't know a bolero from a fichu
or a box of plait,  so  I took them
_
out on the lawn and burned them.
Then I recovered the key from the
ashes.
Blissful Innocence
"I suppose," said the fair prison
visitor, "that the singing of the
little birds helps to relieve the'
monotony for you?"
"Wot birds?" queried the prison-:
er..- ;'/'"' ���'���;
"Why the jail birds," replied;
the fair visitor. "I've often heard
of them."
Made Her Happy
The sentiment of today was freely expressed by ..the New England
girl who mistook the first mile
stone out of Boston for a tombstone, and, reading the inscription,
'1-M from BoBton,' said:
" 'I'm from Boston'���how simple, how sufficient."

THE JOLLY GIRL
The jolly girls are bovn, not made; no training or endeavor can counterfeit her. There are those, to be sure,
who affect jollity, but it is only skin deep. The jolly girl
is jolly under adverse circumstances���in bad weather;
when she hasn't a cent to her name; when she has the
toothacke; when she breaks her needle; when her back
hair tumbles down in public; when she is shopping; when
her masculine friend at the theatre goes out and when he
returns. She never seems to indulge in that feminine luxury "the blues" and it is a mistake to suppose that she is
noisy; there is jollity of the lady-like, aristocratic sort,,as
well as the fish-wife order.
The girl who makes up he mind that jollity is the proper cue and that she will be lively or die usually overdoes
the business. ' She thinks that.it chiefly consists in laughing and in chattering nonsense, that it is a manner of
speech merely, rather than a quality of the mind which
disposes one to make the best of everything, to see the
rainbowlbn the cloud and the silver lining behind it, to
make the wrinkle in the rose leaf a cause of mirth. Some
believe that jollity is a cause of embonpoint; but who has
not been disappointed in finding the stout woman melancholy and the thin one vivacious, the bilious person full
of good humor and the person whose digestion never gave
her a moment's uneasiness quite the reverse? The jolly
girl cannot suppress herself, and assume sadness of pen-
siveness; languishing airs do not sit well upon her, but
show at a glance that they are borrowed plumes, One is
never dull with her. She has that infinite variety that all
the world covets and loves. It may be a desirable thing
that those who have not this natural grace should cultivate
and encourage it in themselves and others, since it brightens and strengthens life, makes rough places smoother and
pleasant places pleasanter. Possibly it is no special virtue
in the jolly girl any more than blue eyes in the blonde
maiden or red hair in the Titianesque. Jollity flows from
her presence just as the nightingale's fluting bubbles from
his throat enchants the world; just as the poet pours forth
his song "in profuse strains of unpremediated art. " Let
her be shipwrecked, or an invalid stranded on a bed of
pain yet she does not lose or abate that peculiar trait
which makes sunshine for those about her and sweeps the
cobwebs out of their sky. .
* ��    *
Be good and do good wherever you roam, and especially display these traits' at your home.
* *    *
Let no act of kindness be ever withdrawn for the dear
ones about us may soon be gone.

He Does Not Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
���My trade of late is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad!"
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.
And that the world may know its loss]
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise."

A new mining excitement was
created in Hope yesterday afternoon on the return of a number of
explorers from the latest discoveries on tho Ooquihalla about 15
miles from Hope.
It is much too early to form an
estimate of fehe value of the new
find, but it has made a very favorable impression on many experienced mining men. L. B. Cleaves,
Capt. B. Blyth and Frank Frit-
came back yesterday afternoon
after staking claims adjoining the
original locations of Thompson and
Merrick, who have been working
on their claims for some time and
saving nothing. Mr. Thompson
returned from a trip to Vancouver
yesterday aud immediately returned to the property. He has interested Vancouver people in the d is-
coveries and an examination by an
engineer is expected next week.
Messrs. Thompson & Merrick
have uncovered a ledge averaging
six feet in width. Ten claims have
already been located along the
ledge.
The ore contains free milling
gold. The gold, in very fine specks
is easily seen without a glass.
Some very high values have bees
shown by assays, but assays of
free milling gold ore are often deceiving. However, a careful sampling will soon be made by which
prospective locators and investors
may be guided.
On Ladner Creek, E. Rondo is
working steadily on the properties
formerly held by W. M. Williams.
His trips into town are not fre-
quenfe, but he is always able to report results cheering.
A. little nearer Hope W. F. Bradley is at work on a quartz prospect,
having later given up placer mining to seturn to his first love.
With him is Charles Farnell, an
old prospector and miner of the
Slocan camps.
Others of the recently located
properties between fehe Natural
Bridge and Ten-Mile are also still
being worked.���Hope Beview.
Frank Brown returned Saturday
night from a trip to Vancouver.
In the cifey he met R. G. Steele
who had jasb returned after spending the winter in England. Col.
Steel stated that in a few weeks he
would undertake the development
of the Silver Island group in Bab-
ine lake on which he took a bond
lasfe fall. He has successfully organized a company of New York
capitalists and the necessary money
is on hand. The first work will
be to take out sixty tons of ore
which is now in sight and snip it.
This ore shows large quantities of
native silver and ife is expected
that some of ife will run as high as
Sl.bOO feo fehe ton.
The Hudson ��� Bay Mountain Co.
will send out another manager .his
year to conduct the operations
there as Mr. Steele will devote all
bis attention to Silver Island.���

About Fishing
To The Editor of The Ledge
Sir:
Might the attention of the
Game Warden be called, through
your paper, to the fishing in this
district.
On Saturday I.fished Eholt
creek from the second beaver
dam to Floyd's ranch, and must
have caught some scores of fish,
but owing to the proper restriction of size, there were only six
fish that were large enough to
bring home.
Every fish I caught with a few,
exceptions, were full ot spawn,
and while unhooking them, the
spawn ran out in a stream, this
being my indiyidual experience,
I presume the same happened
with every fisherman.
This must prove that the
spawning season is late this year
and might it not be wise for the
Game Warden, or perhaps a
higher Government authority, to
extend the close season for a
longer period when this delay in
spawning is evident. This would
save the waste in eggs and young
fish which have now too many
enemies preying upon them.
There is another suggestion
that perhaps might be carried
out with benefit to the fishing in
this district.
There is a stretch of water in
Eholt creek where)the fish seem to
collect for spawning. It is an
ideal spawning ground, being a
fine gravelly bottom and shallow
water. Here the fish are the
thickest at present, evidentally
coming from lower reaches of the
creek to spawn.
I would be pleased to show
this stretch of water to the
Game Warden and prove my
assertion.
Would it be possible to preserve this stretch of water until
later in the season, when the
bulk of the spawning is finished.
All true sportsmen, would I am
sure, gladly assist in whatever
restrictions would be placed in
this stretch.
Yours truly,
CHARLES KING.

COUGH TWO YEARS OLD
iVidds to Vinol.   Read Why.
Strong rigorous men and women
hardlrerer catch cold; it's only when
tbe system la run down and Titallty
low that colds and coughs got a foot-
bold.
Now Isxtt It reasonable that tha
right way to cure a cough Is to build
up your run down condition again?
Mrs. D. A. McGee of WaycroBs, Oau.
says: "I had a chronic cold and cough
which kept me awake nights for two
years and I felt tired all the time.
Vlnol cured my cough and I feel
stronger in erery way."
The reason Vlnol la so efficacious
In such cases ts because It contains
in a delicious concentrated form all
the medicinal curt-tiro elements of
cod lirer oD. with tonic, blood building Iron added.
Chronic coughs and colds yield to
Vlnol because tt builds up the weakened, not-down system.
Ton caa get your money back any
pato If Vlnol does not do an we say.
