The Greenwood Exhibition this

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

GREENWOOD, AUGUST 6, 1914.
The man with the  wheat
now has a mint.
Hell or heaven is largely
a matter of digestion.
As a football  the watermelon is a busted failure.
Ireland would be full of
peace if it had no churches.
Many a hotel man has
shortened his days by drinking up the short bits.
The man who has no confidence in himself seldom
amounts to much.
Do not run around when
times are dull. Sit still and
save railway fare.
The great blunder of some
creeds is blaming all the
troubles upon women.
If you would avoid suffering do not become too deeply
attached to anything.
There must be a spot on
the sun this year, Old Sol
should wash his face.
THE grass will again be
green even if it is temporarily splashed with red by
warlike nations. v
We need more hens, hogs,
and cattle in B.C. We have
plenty of tall buildings and
silent sawmills.
Many a crank who would
not take a shot of booze under any condition kills himself eating too much.
Times are getting better,
and a great era of prosperity is just dawning upon
Canada and the United
States.
There is no trouble in a
nation when the material
wants of everyone is satisfied.
The man with the full stomach does not fight over a
bone with his neighbor.
GiVEwomen more latitude.
Cut out the double standard,
and permit the fair sex to
exercise their entire being,
and the suffragette question
would be settled forever.
Good and bad times are
largely a matter of imagination.
As society is organized
Alice Hubbard says, that
many American wives are
classed financially with preachers, Pullman-car porters
and beggars, That is to
say they live on tips,
Thinking Themes
Poor folks have poor ways, they
say down in the country; but more
amazing to me are the ways of the
rich.
I know a woman with plenty.
Her pocket book is always full of
yellow things. She will buy any
little trinket that pleases her; no
matter about the price. She came
home the other day with a useless
bit of bric-a-brac that cost her
$125. And she will drive her
automobile five miles out of the
way to get grape fruit at ten cents
the dozen less than at her grocers.
Of course, she has a right to: only
it's odd.
The most amusing place to
watch the antics of the rich is in
a business meeting of a Church,
have seen a company of men worth
collectively over two million dol
lars, spend two hours chaffering
over.putting a new twenty-dollar
sidewalk in front of the parsonage.
A man will go to the Triennial
Conclave of his order and spend
money like a drunken sailor, and
come home and complain because
his wife bought something for $11
that she might have got for $9.60.
I know a man who gets a new
limousine every Spring, trading in
the old one and a thousand dollars.
When he dines down town he often
gives the waiter a ten dollar tip.
He's a good spender. And the
other day he discharged an old
employee that had been in his ser
vice fifteen years, because he could
get some one else to do the work
three dollars a month cheaper.
When Jesus said that-about it's
being hard for a rich man to enter
the Kingdom he wasn't talking
theology, he was describing human
nature.���Dr. Frank Crane.
The man by the clnb fire was
talking about a noisy, boastful,
politician. "Well," he said, philosophically, "there are lots of people who would rather be the
whistle of a locomotive than one
of its driving wheels."
Many a happy; home in
Europe will soon be broken
up, and many a mother's
heart will break as she learns
that her loved one will not
return. We are Christians,
but war is hell.
They gave the lady the only unoccupied room in the hotel���one
with a private bath adjoining.
The next morning, when the guest
was ready to check out the clerk
asked: "Well, did yon have a
good night's rest madam?"
V ��|No, Ididn't/VrepliedJheiady;
The room was all right, and the
bed was pretty good; but Icouldn't
sleep very much, for I was afraid
some one would want to take a
bath, and the only way to it was
1.through my room."
We are here to become experts
in love, professionals in weighing
and judging human values, masters
of self and circumstance?. So long
as we gain this end, wby worry
about the road that leads us to it?
Come sorrow, come joy, come
success or failure, they are all grist
to our mill. We will transform
all of. them into character. Everything that befalls us shall help to
perfect our manhood.
The salary of ��75,000 paid the

A certain Irishman was very
proud of a huge bulldog ho possessed, which was his constant companion. One day a friend met him
without the dog, and looking very
disconsolate.
"Well," he asked, "and how is
that dog of yours doing?"
"Oh, bejabers, he's dead! The
illigant baste wint and swallcd a
tape-measure!"
"Oh, I see! He died by inches,
then?".
"No, shure, he didn't! He
went round to the back of the
house an' died by the yard!"    ,.
When General Schenck, whose
greatest fame rests upon his having' introduced the game of poker
into England, first arrived in London as American minister to the
court of St. James he took a little
of his spare time to visit the sights
of. the British capital. Among
other places he visited Mme Tus-
saud's wax works. "And what do
you think of our great wax work
exhibition?" asked a friend.
"Well," replied the general, "it
struck me as being very like the
ordinary English  evening party."
Perhaps the Bishop of Manchester has never heard the story of
the Edinburgh minister who, after
service one Sunday, went for a
walk. By-and-by he met one of
his elders, who asked him whether
he was going on an errand of
mercy. "No," replied tho minister; "I'm enjoying a walk amid
the beauties of nature." "I was
just su.pectin' as muckle," responded the elder. '-But you
that's a meenister o' the Gospel
should ken that the Sabbath is no
day for ony sic thing." "But
oven the Lord walked with His
disciples in the fields on the Sab-
bath," said tho minister. "I hae
no doot, I hae na doot," came the
startling response, "but I dinna
think the mair o' Him for that,
aythor."
Wore the Stripes
When tho donkey saw the zebra
He began to switch his tail;
"Well, I never," was his comment;
"There's a mule that's been in
jail."
No man has risen to true greatness who has not felt, in some
degree, that his life belongs to his
race, and that what God gives him
he must give for mankind.���Phillips Brooks.-
It is easy to be patient and gentle when everybody is treating us
kindly. But it is nobler, and
Bhows more fine character, to be
patient and gentle when some one
is wronging us.
"I say, Reginald, I've forgotten
my card case."
"Nevah mind, dear boy. I'll
lend you some of mine."
"But���ah���the names would be
different, doncherknow."
"So they would; what a head
you have got, Algy."
Will it Come to This
"Do you- mean to tell me their
church is crowded?"
"Yes. Why not? They pay ten
thousand a year to their advertising man."

LOWERY'S CLAIM
During the 87 months that Lowery'B
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
pa.tly 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

. A. city- man entered a restaurant one dayjaud ordered a piece of
huckleberry pie. He. paid 10 cents
for it, and on analysis found it to
contain 13 huckleberries and 4
ounces of some unknown building
material. This gave the city man
an idea, and on his next visit to
New Hampshire he bought 750
yards of land. His next move was
to buy 750 huckleberry trees,
which he planted on the ground he
owned. As a result, the first year
he-harvested 748 huckleberries-
two of the trees were unproductive. With these he made more
than 1,400 pies, which sold at 10
cents and netted him a profit on
the year of 887. Investing this
money in additional buckle trees,
the city man is now the buckle
king of New Hampshire.���Ex.

WHAT TO DO WITH MOTHER
And the question in many a group  has  been,   although
not plainly stated;  "What shall we do with the   mothers,
anyhow.   They are so far behind the times."    Permit us
to suggest that if L'the mother had given more time to look/
ing after you she would have been as fully up to  date  as
you in music, in style of gait, in aesthetic taste and in all
sorts of information.    We expect that while  you were
studying botany and chemistry and embroidering and  the
new opera she was  studying household economics.    But
one day from overwork, or sitting up   of   nights  with  a
neighbor's sick child, or a blast of the east wind, on which
pneumonia are horsed, mother is  sick.    Yet   the   family
think she will soon get well, for she has been sick so often
and always has gotten well and the physician comes three
times a day, and there is a cousultation of the doctors and
the news is gradually broken that recovery is impossible,
given in the words, "While there is life there   is   hope."
And the white pillow over which are strewn the  locks  a
little tinted with snow becomes the point around which all
the family gather, some kneeling, and the pulse beats  the
last throb, and the bosom trembles with the last  breath,
and the question is asked in a whisper all over the group,
"Is she gone."    And all is over.
* *    *
TO THE) FRONT.
The good men must always be at the front. It is not
enough that there more good men than bad, but they must
be at the front everywhere and at all times. One man in
position of influence is worth a thousand men single-handed
and silent. It is a Christian's duty to wield all the influence he can honestly and judiciously, wherever he is. If a
mechanic, be a leader as far as consistency will allow, in
the council's of labor; if a ' 'drummer'' be a leader among
commercial travellers; if a merchant be as successful as
conscience and circumstances permit; in politics be always
on hands; sacrifice time, convenience and comfort to be at
the caucus and polls.^ It requires more grace, more head
and heart to be a leader in social, schplastic, mechanical,
mercantile or 'political life, constantly and consistently,
than it does to be the best deacon, superintendent or prayer meeting worker in the city, and it is as essential in its
way.
* *���*''���
Of all the things for which a young person should strive,
a good character stands easily at the head of the list. It
may be hard to get on without wealth and edncation, but
without a good character, no permanent and enduring success can be attained.
* *    *
Of all places, praise should be most lavishly used in the
family circle, How many of us keep all our words of
kindness for strangers, for those in whom we have not one
spark of vital interest; and to the hearts dedendent upon
us for sympathy and appreciation, have scarcely one
cheery word. If we are so niggardly in the expenditure
ofthe sweet- charities of-life-that we cannot squandercommendations on the home folks and strangers  too,   by all
means let the'home folks come in first for their share,

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 flush 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
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
contaids the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too nnmer-
ons to mention. Send for
on�� before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,

He Does Not Advertise.
Br eathes there a man witit sonl so dead
W ho never to himself has said:
' My trade of late is getting bad,
I' 11. try another ten-inch ad I"
If there be. go mark him well,
For him no bank account shall swel\
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who nefer asks for trade,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage bnt 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 d_ep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,
Where no rode clamor may dispel
That quiet that he loved so trell.
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss.
And on a stone above * "Here Iks
A fossil, who did not advertise."

Daring the week there have been
several locators ont staking claims
for placer gold in the district. Up
to the time of going to presB there
have been only two to record their
claimB, the others no donbt taking
advantage of the 15 days allowed
fcr recording.
The two claims recorded are
known as the Ewen Placer Claim
and the Hurry ^Placer-[Claim and
are situated on Hospital Creek ��� on
the "Wycliffe road.
In the neighborhood we are Ain-
formed that there[���have .been'.'six
other claimB staked, while on the
St. Mary's Prairie there have been
about twelve claims staked, In
the meanwhile we understand that
prospecting is going' on apace and
before another issue of this paper
we shall perhaps hear of a large
number of claims being recorded.
It is a well known fact that in
this district there are large bodies
o�� ore of a very valuable nature,
but as yet though we hear from
time to time of several valuable
finds being made, they have not
proved up to expectation. However, we are confident in the future
and what it holds for this district
in mining, and the way prospecting is being pushed at present indicates thafe ife will not be long before we hear of somebody striking
ife rich.���Cranbrook Prospector.
St. John Harmsworth, a brother
of Lord Northcliffe, is in British
Columbia in connection with the
operations of a syndicate of London capitalists which intends developing the radium springs near
Windermere.'
The company, called the Radium
Natural Springs Syndicate, Limited, is capitalized>t $125,000. It
proposes to erect "a large sanitar-
. ium and bottling works, laying out
grounds and otherwise establishing
a replica of one' of J2the I famous
springs in Europe. Some 615
acres of land, including mineral
rights, have been secured comprising the Sinclair radium hot springs.
The springs, which include the
mineral rights and water powers of
the canyon are situated on the east
side of the Columbia river, 60
miles south of Golden and 13 miles
north of Windermere.!
Mr. HarmBworth it was who
first turned to profitable account
the mineral springs in France from
which Perrier water is derived.
The other members of the syndicate
are G. R. W. Stewart, owner of a
large part of the holdings at Sinclair - springs Bince-1888 ^and for
many years a resident of British
Columbia, Hon. Dudley Carlton
and Denys Stephenson.
ing better w nth every round of
holes they m ake. The shaft was-
the first wori r done ou the proper
ty when ife wan staked, but the ore
did not show up as anticipated and
ife was abandoned. The recent
work has proved that the shaft had
been sunk on the tail end of the
ore body.
McCrimmon and Stewart are
putting in long hours and working
hard, but Rod says they are being
well repaid, and he hopes that in a
very short time they will be able
feo put on some men to help them.
They have several tons of ore now
sacked, or ready to be sacked, and
this fall they will have a carload
ready for shipment. The prospectB
are bright for several cars from this
property before the spring break-up.

Excitement over the recent discovery of high grade ore at the 23-
Mile camp still continues, and this
camp has been visited by numbers
from all parts of the province attracted by the report of the strike.
All who have returned by way of
Hope have expressed themselves as
satisfied as to the genuine value of
the camp.���West Yale Review.
The recent bonding of L. C.
Knauss' property on Fiddler
Mountain, marks a long forward
stride in tho development; of the
country immediately tributary to
the Skeena river valley, and now
comes the rumor that still another
equally important mining transaction will soon be consummated
in the same locality.
Having never visited the Lome
Creek district, we have no personal knowledge of its mineral showings and mining probabilities, but
the many favorable opinions we
have heard expressed about it during the past four or five years by
men who have been on the ground
and who should know what they
are talking about, moves us to say,
with all possible emphasis���"Keep
your eye on Lome Creek."

To Newman Erb Esq.
President B. C. Copper Co.,
Ibis with grave apprehension that
wejhave learnt that yonr company is
contemplating the closing down of
your Smelter and Mines in this vicinity at an early date. As the
town is built tip almost entirely of
the benefits we receive from your
operations and as the short notification of closing will not allow our
merchants and business men sufficient time to clear out their stocks
or to arrange for tlie cancellation
of their orders.
We earnestly urge you to reconsider your decision and allow us
sufficient time to arrange our business affairs to meet this situation.
In view of fehe present circumstances, if there is any way in
which we can be of assistance to
your Company in this Province, if
you will advise us, we will use
every endeavor to carry out your
suggestions.
Trusting that we shall be favored wifeh a reply afe your very earliest convenience, we remain on he-
half of fehe citizens of Greenwood.

Replying to your nighfe lettergram, July 31sfe, it appears to be
impossible under present conditions and in view of ore exhaustion
to continue operations without loss.
If it were possible to obtain a proper concession from the South

to avoid to the utmost any inconvenience or serious embarassmenfe
feo the people of your cifey and shall
recommend feo my board any steps

There was a children's hospital
Which Miss ��� Gladys Vanderbilt
visited regularly, bringing fruit
and flowers to the little patient's,
and in a certain ward a boy' was
pointed out to her as a very bad
customer. Miss Vanderbilf talked
a while with the llifefele chap, and
when she rose to go she said:
"I have heard bad reporfes about
yon. Now I want you to promise
me to be good. If you are good
for a whole week, I'll bring you a
dollar when I come again next
Thursday."
The boy promised to try to be
good. This promise, though, he
did not keep. On her next visit
Miss Vanderbilt, going feo his cot,
said;
"I shall not ask the nurses how
you hane[behaved this last week.
I want you to tell me yourself.
Now what do. you think���do deserve that dollar I promised you,
or not?"
The boy regarded Miss Vanderbilt with a troubled frown. Then
he said in a low voice: "Gimme a
nickel."

What is the 'Indian' doing now?
The story has as many chapters as
there are Indians.
Miss Laura Cornelius, an Oneida, studied law at Leland Stanford. Chief Rogers is president of
a bank in Indian Territory; Tom
Longboat, a Canadian, journeys to
Europe to contest the Marathon
prizes.
Mrs. Eliza Albertz (with no
Boswell to chronicle it) shows a
family circle more kindly diverse
than that of Dr. Johnson; this woman, a full-blood Cherokee, has
adopted and reared twenty-one red
orphans says the August Pacific
Monthly.
Many Indian agents in 1908,
with.Sartor Resartus joy, reported
to Washington, D. C.: "All my Indians on this reserve are civilized;
they havo discarded the blanket
and wear white men's clothes."
Yet that not all have with the
blanket put off the old way would
appear in the story of Wabakoshna.
This Minnesota sport, claiming to
be 122 years old,, was the joyous
owner of a 83,500 auto. He bet
his grandson a house-jockey, that
his machine could beat any horse
in a 100-yard dash with a standing
start. Resulfe: Collision, horse killed, aufco wrecked, and old Ben
Hur dies of his hurts.   ..
One little Navajo boy wears the
uniform of a government school,
but; has nofe yefe learned to appreciate the Thanksgiving turkey.
Asked by the teacher which part of
the bird[he-would like, he replied
eagerly: "Gimme tail. Make arrow."
The Navajo should make a good
walking delegate. He will not
work alongside the negro or the
Chinese who cut prices. He ib
conscious, though, of his limitations, and writes: "I have no
time to loaf about town; still, good
thing I don't live anywhere near
town."
