the opening ball invert hist Thursday
livening hv the local K
ence. It is the system that is going to
make the camp. The system has many
advantages in a section where the ore
is rich and is found in -small veins like
in the Slocan. It has heen in vogue ki
the United States for over 30 years aud
has been found to work out advantageously' for both the lessees and the
lessors. In the Austin, Nevada, camp
a number of miners for many years followed the custom of leasing mines from
companies and individuals and a few
became wealthy while so doing. There
they were willed "ch-oriders.' The
ledges in many instances in the vicinity
of Austin were very small and exceedingly rich, and a few sacks of ore would
often yield from $500 to $2500, and this
made the "chloriders"' occupation a
profitable one. In Cripple Creek the
leasing system has been more or less
the practice ever since it was first discovered, and continues in use there at
present. It has been found advantageous there.
The man or company that is ready to
take up a property on a lease will' be
one who understands mining H« will
know just how to work the property
most advantageously, and he will employ men whom he can depend upon to
do a day's work He will not have
about him numerous office men who
know little or nothing about mining.
The result will be that the lessee will
get good work- out of the men employed
and the profits will not be eaten np'by
figureheads who do not earn their salt

not the result of any sudden, impulsive,
Eldorado suggestion, but is the natural
effect of the persistent campaign of advertising that has been carried out for
years. The tide of immigration is
higher now than ever before, and , rises
month by month and week by week
with a relentless regularity, Hallways
and steamship lines are unable to
handle the traffic. Special after special
brings its multitude, of eager, hardy
homeseekers. Freight trains, heavily
laden with settler's effects, crowd the
tracks Tho steamships leaving
Europe for Canada are overcrowded,
and many unable to secure passage for
Canada direct, come via New York and
Boston. Every passage, it is said, is
engaged on eteamers leaving Great
Britain for the next four months, and
still they come and promise to come,
their faces turned westward where free
farms and freedom are to be had.
The steady increase of the immigration with its recent expansion is a
matter of deep interest. In l«97 the
arrivals numbered 18,864. In four
years they had risen to 88,0(i5, and last
year saw 75,888 new settlers in tlie
country. Basing an estimatcon a comparison of arrivals this year to date wiih
those during the same period last year,
the totals for 1903 should reach' the
modest little total of 130.000. A perusal
of the following table of arrivals, extending back for two years, will make
plain this gradual increase.
1901.     190-2.       1903.
January      471       1,1(>7       '2,811
February.......     992       1.U55      2,9)0
Ma-ch 4,868      7,248     12,267
A priI  5,595      9.855     20,000
May  5,163     10.U52     	
Tho last month, May, has always
been the banner month in immigration...
of their destination. During the last
month none went to the States.
It is an auspicious fact, seeing that
nine-tenths of these people intend to
farm, that for these three months 8,821
described themselves as agriculturists
and 1,114 as general laborers. Tin re
were 733 mechanics, 177 clerks, traders,
etc., 129 miners, ll>0 female servants,
and'6,509 w*eie unclassified—0.133 of
these latter were women and children.
Although the Americans are as far as
farming is concerned the cream of the
immigration, because of their intimate
knowledge of the wept, their farming
experience aud outfits, the class of
English settlers promises to do well and
relieve any apprehension of the fearful
lest the west be Americanized. Although few of the English colonisls will
wish to do railroad work, they are having an indirect effect in creating a supply of men for this very necessary need
by crowding out tl.e foreigner front farm
positions. The latter will in po wise he
the loser, as they make excellent railway construction laborers and will find
ample employment in that field.

Miss M. Egan returned to Sandon on |    "The Association  has recommended
Monday. to the government that inquiry be made
soTKHTtRe rush for tins year may be
said to he only commencing. April, in
round figures, represents 20,000, and
May, if it increase proportionately as
the other months should bring 22,000.
"After thi" the rush has usually receded
slowly, but this year it is probable it
will last much longer than it has previously done.
Using the arrivals du ing the same
three months, and classifying them at
lo their nationality, a rather interesting
result is obtained.

Placer silver is a doubtful material,
many experts believiii); that there is
no such thing ns placer silver However, there is owned by Mr \\. M.
Johnston, ot Chicago, a specimen of
silver that has every appearance of being of placer origin, and furthermore,
Mr Johnstone holds reliable proofsthat
wliut he claims for his specimen is correct. Near Moreles, Sinola, Mexico, 20
years airo a couple of Englishmen
opened up a bed of silver at the base of
a foothill and for a distance of 250 feet
-with a-wid.'h -varying fioni-a-lo-lS-iiuhes
in what was properly the bed of a small
stream lay the silver. The silver was
mostly native and spongey and all the
treatment necessary was that it was
thrown into barrels half filled with
water, the barrels shaken and thesilver
was separated from the gangue. It is
said that inside of six months this deposit netted its discoverers over a million dollars in silver That this was a
stiver placer property is most e\ident
soul is doubtless the only one ever dis
covered Here was the silver spread
oyer the bed of an ancient stream, right
on and near the surface, and the method
of mining was similar to >»old placer,
viz: washing to separate the heavier
metal from the foreign substance. That
the deposit* was a freak of nature is permissible, and that more data pcrtaiiiinir
to the lind is not to be had is a deplorable fact.

to the bureau of mines consideiable
time was devoted lc discussing the
question of how far the department had
failed to carry out the terms of section
7, of the Bureau of Mines Act, Revised
Statutes of British Columbia, 1897. and
the resolution, which was pas-Fed unanimously, sets forth the impression which
exists in the minds of the members nf
the association It will he submitted to
the government.
"The execurtvu seemed lo think that
the bureau had signally failed to be the
useful institution it wss evidently in-
tented to be tinder section 7. One of
the chief clauses in the section, which
has been more honored in the -breach
than in the* observance, ia that part
which relates to the issuance of reports

KHKK   SOUP   IN   BUTTK.
United States Senator AV. A.
Clark litis opened in the Paul Clark
homo, a charitable institution foun-
d( d by the Chirks for the benefit of
all destitute persons in Butte.
Those in need of a good meal can
have it gratis at the Paul Clark
home. The soup is cooked in immense caldrnus and is being given
away to poor families of the town
by the bucket-full.
The situation at Butte has not
been equaled in a long time. Hundreds of workmen attracted by the
reopening of the Amalgamated
mines and smelters flocked to Butte
in the hope of securing employment.
Utah and Colorado, where the min-,
ers are on a strike, contributed
scores more, until there are at least
from three to five men awaiting
every job. The employment
bureaus are thronged with crowds
daily seeking work.
Parrot mine, one of the largest of
the Amalgamated properties, will
open in about a week, affording employment ta about 900 men, and
this, it is expected, will relieve the
situation somewhat.

A telegsaph editor in a newspaper
oflice once wrote a note of remonstrance to a typewriter because the
latter in his copy had entirely omitted the letters "f" and "k" wher-

as a food is of the highest value,
and the use of margarine should
be greatly increased, Margarine
is a substance that does no* desarve

It is made in a way that is open to
no sort of objection. It is phsio-
logically equal to butter, is easily
digested, and is an exclelent supplier of energy.
"Lentils, peas, haricot beans and
oatmeal should be eaten, and meat
in proper quantities. Oatmeal
should be given to children, particularly in place of the bread and
jam.
"I would not urge the town dweller to be a vegetarian," continued
Dr. Hutchison, "but I would advise
the poor that they can get a much
larger quantity of waste-repairing

eu bloc it is somewhat difficult of
digestion. If mixed up with other
things in various ways it can be
better dealt with by the stomach.

Texas newspapers have been
packing other people's burdens and
grinding everybody's axes quite
long enough without attending to their own business. Now,
when the legislature meets, let us
make a united assaault on the
court house bulletin board, giving
our representatives to understand
that the public interest demands
the publication of legal notices in
county newspapers, and not tacked
on a board, io be torn off by the
wind or removed by some malicious
person interested in suppressing
publicity. Texas is far behind
most of the other states in this
matter of legal publications, and it
is time to be catching up. If our
press associations are ever to be of
any value to the members, this is
a good place to make a start.—Calhoun County News.

Strictly defined, the ballet is
properly a theatrical exhibition of
the art ot dancing in its highest
perfection, complying generally
with the rules of drama as to its
composition and form. It was in
existence* in Italy as far back as A.
I). 1500, the court of Turin in that
day making especial use of it and
the royal family and nobles taking
part in it. Tho ballet was first
introduced in France in the reign of
Louis XIII., and both that monarch and liOuiBXIV. occasionally
took part lu it« dances.
Ill its earliest presentation the
ballet appeared dexterously in combination with the othor theatrical
acts and Is nafd to have completed
the "chaotic medley exhibited In1
these apectaclen, which were at
once mythological, allegorical, fantastic, warlike and paHtorul." The
reader will not be hlow to olwerve
that its development in the present
day has not apparently lost night

that Mr. Carnegie told to me. It
is a story illustrative of the connubial felicity in Scotland, and I
am sure you will enjoy it.
"Once at a party there was a
crusty old Scot seated at a whist
table, playing passionately, and his
partner was a young woman, the
daughter of a neighboring laird.
You are to imagine this young wo-
-man*s-6urpriser-in-the-hear6-of—the.
game, when the old fellow threw
down his cards and bawled at her:
" 'What kind of a game are ye
playin', ye darned auld- '
"And then, recollecting himself,
he bowed and said humbly to the
outraged girl:
"'Yourpardon'Bbegged.madam,
I took ye in the excitement for my
aiu wife.' "—Boston Post.

HEINZE   IN   MEXICO.
Advices from Mexico state tliat
F. Augustus Heinze, tho noted
copper mining man of Montana,
has obtained an option on the famous Ladicha copper mines in the
state of Guerrero, Mexico. These
mines are owned by the Mitchell
Mining and Smelting company, of
which George Mitchell is the president, and are valued at several
million dollars.
W. H. Blake, representative of
Mr. Heinr.e, is on his way to tho
mines. The property will also bo
personally inspected by Mr. Heinze
before the deal is closed. It is hiu
plan to erect a large copper smelter
and to build a railroad from Ladicha to the port of Acapulco on
the Paciiic coast of Mexico, if the
property is acquired hy him.
"Sib down," said the fierce old

obeyed. "Well, what is it." The

THE LEDGE, NEW DENVER, B.C., DECEMBER 3, 1903.
ON   15AKOAIN   DAY.
See the woman as she scrambles,
How she shambles, rambkis, ambles!
S •»■ tlie woman as sue hustles,
Huw she bustles, ra«tles, tussels!
So,' how gracefully she scoots
Down the stree , how she shoots
A round, the corner, through the door
Anil ttn-ii into the notion store
\Vhere she buys a wad of frills
And other things.   "Just send the bills
To hubby de <r," and out she fc'ies
Into the" street, and hubby knows
From the capers
Wifey cut* she has read of sundry bar rains
In the pajiers.
THE   WAY TO  A  MAN'S HKAKT.
Not necessarily through his stomach. This brutal truth applies to
men after they turn thirty-five.
Under this age, and frequently over
it. the golden key which unlocks
the shut door is aympathy.
Not bright eyes, golden hair rosy
checks, trim waist, good temper,
though all these help, but the one
rtiing which is enough without any
of these charms--and without which
they arc of no avail—is sympathy.
I used to woncter once upon a
lime how it was that one of the
plainest girls I knew had on tn
average four proposals ayear,uwhil<
others who were dashing, stylish
and far more accomplished never
got one. Then, oue day, I saw
he with a man, and. T knew at
once how it was. She had brown
eyes, gentle, spaniel-like eyes, and,
all the while he was talking she
kept them fixed on his face, with
an expression of breathless interest.
He was talking about the trouble
he had had in business, owing to
his partner being a man of violent
temper, and the worry a lady typist
has been; it wasn't at all interesting, and he was obviously taking
• because he wanted to get it off life
ohesfc, not with any idea of amusing^
or interesting his companion. Moer
girls would have been horribly
bored, and would have yawned
discreetly or would have made an
irrelevant remark about another
girl's hat, but she listened with*
what the novelists call ahor heart)
in her eyes," and I'm sure if he
had talked to her about American
Kails and Kaffirs, she would have
Kstene'd with just the same air of
absorption, regarded hhn with just
__lhe^am*ft-el'X! uent-eves, ——
It was the keynote of her individuality to be httefested in what
interested others, to try and understand their thoughts and their feelings, to enter into their trivial
woes, and to rejoice over their triumphs. She could no more help
it than she could help breathing,
ahe had no thought of coquetry,
and when one and all they begged
ber to give them that exquisite
sympathy for life, as they always
did, she was cut to the heart when
it came to the inevitable refusal,
and felt angry with herself for not
having seen tho inexorable conse
quences in time to avert a declaration. Yes, dear reader, it is the
mie straight road to a man's heart,
be he lark or fair, tall or short,
fat or thin, young or old; he is like
a sunflower turning td the sun
when he encounters the warm influence of human sympathy.
IG i sn' * as easy to sy m patl i i ze as
it sounds. Frst of all, it means
being able to look at things from
another person's point of view.
Then it means actually identifying
i one's self with their troubles and
joys, it means putting self, and the
things which interest and concert
M-lf, into the background and keeping them there.
You can't realize what sympathy
does for a man. It nerves him to
bear a brave front, to conquer despondency, perhaps to throw oil
despair; it makes him do the work
of three men with a light heart; it
convinces him of the ultimate good
ness of things, and makes an optimist of anything but a dyspeptic
hypochondriac.
You can't sympathize too often
or too much. From tho breaking
of a collar stud while dressing for
a dancef to a run of bad luck which
renders even tobacco gn impossible
luxury there is a constant call for it.
A, man wants it when he's well,
to keep him fit and cheerful; he
wants it when he's seedy, to help
to banish the black fears which
torment him; he wants it when he's
trying to be good, to keep him on
the right track, and if he ever
wants it more than any other time,
it's when he's inclined to go off the
rails.
THK HKVOLDTION IN A NUTSHELL
The following contribution to
historic literature on the American
revolution was made by a little
lady to a short story competition in
a Philadelphia newspaper. The
writer, a schoolgirl of ten years,
epitomizes the whole Valley Forge
experience in tlie following terse
Sentences:
"There was a revolutionary war.
.The British revolutioned Philadelphia. So Mr. Washington took
a lot of soldiers to Valley Forge._
"MrTWlBMngMSTKadFIennyiliing
rfor the soldiers to eat, so they had
to go t>arefoot. Mr. Washington
felt very bad so he asked Benjamin
Franklin. Benjamin Franklin felt
bad, to, so he asked the king of
France. The king of France sent
a lot of soldiers, so we licked the
British."	
AWFUt,   KXABlrLUS.
A temberance orator with a particular fondnse for statistics was
speaking to a Pittsburg audience
recently, one the listeners being
Ben Stanford, one of tite most no
torious bibulous characters in Western Pennsylvania.
To impress his truths, .the speaker went into statistical illustrations.
He stated that the beer barrels
emptied ih tli'it country would, if
placed end to end, make a circle
twice around the globe; that there
are saloons enough to fill a street
running from Pittsburg to New
York; that the lumber wasted in
making bun s for beer kegs was
sufficient to construct an Atlantic
City board walk from the statue of
Liberty to the Golden Gate. Finally, in a peroration of great fervor,
he exclaimed:
"Citizens, for every missionary
sent out from this country we export 20,000 gallons of ruin!"
The audieuce sat hushed for a
moment, during which old Ben
seemed to ruminate on this awful
truth. Then he murmured thickly:
"Mish'iiaries—hio—drink too
much."
COMKTS   AND   WOMKJf.
The analogy between comets and
women once formed the subject of
the following peroration from an
eveniiig contemporary: "Comets
doubtless answer some wise and
good purpose in the creation; so do
women. Comets are incomprehensible, beautiful and eccentric; so are
women. Cornels shine with peculiar splendor, but at night arc
most brilliant; so are women.
Comets are enveloped with a lucid
nebula through which their forms
are visible; so are those of women
in their light and elegant attire.
Comets confound the most learned
wheu they attempt to ascertain
their nature; so do women. Comets equally excite the admiration of
the philosopher aud of the clod of
the valley; so do women. Comets
and women are therefore closelj
analogous, but, the nature of each
b ing inscrutable, all that remains
for us to do is to view with admiration the one and to love the other
bo adoration."—Golden Penny.

Frederick Wentworth knew a
fellow that had a crib full of corn
and the crib had a knot hole in it.
The twister pulled all the cobs out
of the knot hole and thus shelled
the corn. A-bale of cotton at the
Waltner mercantile store was torn
open by the terrible twister and
twisted into a quarter-inch rope
1,423 yards long. This rope is
being sold at 25 cents a foot.
On one wagon a wheel was started

It is said that there is scarcely a
single artiste in a fashionable woman's attire to which serious and
oftimes fatal diseases cannot be
traced. It is claimed by physicians-
that the high-heeled shoes, the fine
veils*;—ijho™svelte-shaped~eorset87
the stockings, the sweeping skirt,
—yes, even tlie garters are a carrier
of disease. The evils that result
from high-heeled shoes—spinal diseases and other disorders—are well
known. But it is not so well
known that close mesh veils -cause
blindness, that "harness" garters
cause serious internal troubles,
that round garters stop the circulation of tlie blood, that heavy
skirts drag down the waists, and
that brain fever has often come
from heavy hats. In fact, if we
except the fig leaf worn by Mother
Eve, it is difficult to find anything
in woman's apparel that is not
open to criticism.—Ex.

It must havo been a retired
sporting editor that located the
Sullivan, Corbett and Fitzsimnions
veins near Idaho Springs, and the
manager's annual reports will probably read somewhat like this: "A
left-handed under cut from John
L. to Corbetts hanging wall and
the latter swings to the right.
Fitzsimnions had astrong lead to
start with but faulted at the contact with the newly discovered Jeffries vein. On the whole we think
tbe Sullivan lode the most pronounced," Expert John Hays
Hammond, with the assistanbe of
Expert George Siler, should get up
a most readable prospectus for this
mine—Western Miner and Financier.
We might add that recent development work showed up a promising stringer 'in tlie old Corbett
lead, which wjas followed to its intersection with the Jeffries vein.
At Ihe juncture'a good body of ore
occurred, but tbe Corbfttt vein itself
contaiued no values. The Jeffries
vein, however, continues strong and
of good milling quality, and seems
destined to finally eclipse the production of the great Sullivan lode
which is now worked out.
Chorus girls are growing not only
stronger, but taller, a New York
operatic manager says. "Chorus
girls and other women on the stage
Jifty years from now will be six-
footers and over. Year after year
they have- been growing taller as
well as stronger, because they are
always out in the air when not on
the stage. They play golf, ride
horseback and walk miles every
day instead of lounging indoors.
Fancy a chorus girl six feet four
inches in height fiifty years from
now, golf stick in haiid, calling on
the manager, five foot one, and
bidding him put her back in the
front rank ofthe chorus,from which
he had removed her the night before. Well, he'd compromise, at
least for the time being."

With the industral quickening
that has recently marked the life of
this section has come the temptation to force helpless children to
perform the work of adults. Results of this system are already sufficiently injurious to awaken condemnation of all right thinking
men and all right thinking women
of the southern states. It is, indeed, a cruelty whereby the helpless are forced to perform labor far
beyond either their mental or physical capacity. It is an injury inflicted by the grasping few in their
effort to lower the wages of the
many who are capable and sufficiently numerous to perform the
wark. From every point of view
child labor is ethically wrong and
financially unwise. There can be
invented no excuse by which it can
be justified. It is a relic, and not the
one, of mediicval methods and me-
diteval morals. In the twentieth
century child labor is an anachronism, livery dollar earned by it is
"blood money." Away with the
system, aid avay with it at once!—

Chicago News: The new cabinet minister is not in favor of
women employes in department'.
He has no strong objection to women occupying minor official positions, but in a general way he is
opposed to advancing them to important places. He holds this
view with the fall knowledge that
some of the most competent employes in the department at Washington are women. He believes
men are more effective workers,
giving better all around results
tthan women. There are no women
employed in the White House force,
and Mr. Cortelyou will follow out
his convictions in this matter in

As the maBses become more educated I
in and conversant with the laws which
govern trade aud incidentally aud consequently with the art of money getting,
it is noticeable that the trend of investment ia along the lines of mining and
its kindred industries.
There are reasons for this and the
wonder is that they have not been more
apparent to investors with limited
means in the past. But it was never
the policy1 of masters of finance to teach
the people that more money could be
made in mining business than in any
other. Bankers and others whose interests it is to secure for themselves
and their business, money which might
be diverted to the more profitable channel of mining if the public should realize
what they themselves know well, that
the only chance for people of moderate
means to gain riches is along the lines
of judicious investments, will not enlighten the public.
A few hundred dollars might lie in a
savings bank for half a century at 8 or
31 per cent interest and at the end of
that time the depositor would not be
much richer than when he placed it
there. But there are thousanus of instances where ah investment of a few-
hundred dollars in mining stocks haa
placed the investor in the independent I
class, if not actually amonn the wealthy f
Why is this? Because the investor has
done with his own money what the
banker does with the depositor's—placed
it where it would earn the most monev
in the shortest time. There are bankei 8
in every western state who havo invested "heavily in' mining, but who
would pooh-pooh the idea of a similar
investment if consulted by one of their
depositors. There is food for serious
thought here
But the people are thinking, and the
more they think about investments of a
safe and profitable nature, the more
money enters into the business of mining. It is no longer tenable to assert
that mining is a gamble. Real mining
ia a safer business th<ut any other we
can think of and is certainly more profitable. Men who have made their millions from mining investments are scattered all over the land, and are living
evidences of that fact.
Sharks enter the the mining business
as they do into other industries, but the
losses which are entailed by ther thieving propensities or by the silly indiscretions of investors, who invest first
and investigate afterwards, shouid not
be criterions of the industry. These
failures, thouirh, are used to the detriment of mining, but let us recount some
of the failures in other lines of business.
For the nine months ending September 80, this year, there were 8,176
failures in commercial lines in the
United States with total liabilities of
$101,055,855, and among the insolvent
firms were 67 banks, which suspended
with liabilities of §8,721,611. And this
is not unusual and compares favorably
with some years; for there is no prospect
of industrial depression. How does
that compare with mining?
.-_The.s!reat-inercan.tileageiiciesj:ecord
no such failures in mining busmess. If
halt a million dollars are lost in unwise
speculation in mining the fact is heralded all over the land, but when $101,-
655,855 is lost in other enterprises, it is
sirnpiy commented on as a sign of tho
times, favorable or unfavorable, as the
case may be. That may be less than
last year. It may bo more, but it is not
so unusual as to cause an uneasy feeling
those from other dines of business that
it is cause for wonder that speculation
in that direction is nol more marked.
An idea of the profits to be derived
from mining may be gathered from
some figures of gold production. The
mines otthe Transvaal produced, since
the opening of the fields in 1884 up to
June 30 of this year, nearly $510,000,000
in gold. California g-old mines are producing over $16,000,000 in gold annually. The gold mines of Colorado are
producing over $20,000,000 annually.
The Indepence mine alone has produced
over $15,000,000 in gold. Cripple Creek
has produced in twelve years about
$145,000,000 in gold, and many other
instances of great production might be
cited, not only of gold producers, but
among the copper, lead and silver mines
and districts In fact, no other industry in the world presents such opportunities for profit as mining, and in no
other business iB the investor as safe or
bo sure of good profits as in legitimate
mining.—S F. Mining Review.
