After long and anxious waiting nml
a display of patience which had lung
since ceased to he a virtue, the citizens
of Midway witnessed Ihe arrival of lhe
first, regular  passenger train to the
lown,  which cainii in  last Monday,
There was not a grand demonstration
iu honor of the long looked for event
such  as  hud  been    given   at   other
towns along ihe line where a similar
event  occurred.     No  vulgar   gazing
crowd awaited the arrival of the nun
horse with Its train load of passengers,
not that the people of  Midway failed
tn recognize the fact, lhat the running
of daily trains to und from th''  lown
meant much to iis advancement, hut
they had waited so long and hnd  been
promised Sn often lhat .lhe dally sir-
vice would he started Ihal Ihey hegnn

Midwuy, hut the government held the
0, P. lt,  company  to certain signed
contracts unit   compelled  it   tn  run
regular trains   to the  terminus   of
their line.   The benefits th.it will he
derived from railway communication
with the uutside world cun scarcely be
overestimated.    Already  there is a
decided improvement in the husiness
of the town, the hotels nre doing a
gnud trade and  merchants report a

are no idle  men   in   lhe  town.   Two

There is not a town in the entire
Boundary country situated to receive
more benefit from railway connection
than Midway. Being the terminus of
the road it will be the distributing
point for the Main Kcttle riv"*r, West
Fork, McKinney, Rock ('reek and the
Myers creek district, which includes a
vast territory not famous alone fur its
mineral wealth but for its agricultural
resources ns well, so tint Midivny is
destined to become one of the greatest
supply points in tbe interior. Another
year Ihe West Fork country alone v, ill
be working a large nunilier of mines,
and all the mil pot will come to Midway, anil by that time tbo Standard
Copper company's pyritie smeller,
which is being built above the town,
will be completed and ready to treat
iheir ores, but when we lnke Into con-
slderaUon that tbe West Pors i- unlj
one of the feeders, the moBtcnnfll'luid
pessimist can see nothing bul a golden
future ahead of Midway.
Th» increased activity in Mldwa)
during the past week is not alone attributable tu the runningof flatly trains
nor to any other one cause, simply
things are coining this wny. There
area host of reasons for the town ns-
BUUlIng such an air of prosperity.
Every town has its growing time, and
Midway is no exception in tbis respect,
It has now entered upon lhe dawn of a
growth whieh will hitherto have been
uiiparallril by any town in the Boundary. It has the only natural townsite
in the Boundary, and lis location is
such that it is hound to become the
recognized metropolis of llu- Interior.
One of thc enterprises which is a
benefactor to the town is the huilding
of the Siandnrd Copper company's
pyritie smelter a short distance to lhe
least of the town, not "so much in the
building of it us in its operation after
completed. It' will employ a large
number of bands and will also be tho .
means of a vast increase in the ore
shipments to Midway.

reservation, just, to the south, which
look place on the 10th inst., ia
another great lieneHt tti the town,
The fertile hinds along the Kettle river

country lo Ihe west (if here is further
advanced, Midway will be Ihe laigest
town in Ihe province west of Vancouvei'.	
Midway ia bnilly in need of i large
hall, lbe one used at present being entirely too small to acnommodati a
large crowd. Up to the present time
it has answered tiie purpose very nicely, but now Ih it the town is growing
a linger one i.s required. If some industrious individual, having the neces-
stry capital, were to put up a building
with a billiard parlor underneath and
u ball above that could I e used as an
opera boose and for entertainments
mid meetings of different kinds, we
are certain the investment would prove
a profitable one.
A young preacher once started out
from New Albany, Indiana, full of ambition and enthusiasm. He told his
friends he was going on a mission—a
great one. Others had failed, but he
.vould nol. It was lo reform the world.
He returned in about five years, and
this was what he said l "I thought 1
could reform the world. After a while
I reduced my sphere to Asia. Then I
concluded the United States would
suit inu best. When I did not succeed
in making as many converts as 1
thought I should, 1 decided on concentrating my work on Indiana, About
a month ago I returned to N.-w Alba*
ny, nnd, after observing the effect of
my lost sermon, I have come to the
conclusion that I will bed—d lucky
if 1 saie niy own soul."
A few pessiuiislically-miiKled residents of Toronto and Chicago aie
advocating noi-elcss cities. They wish
to slop Ilie small hoy from whistling
on the sweets, all trains are to run
from lhe two hundred font level and
people walking on thc sidewalks are to
wear shoes a la policeman, Did Ihnse
wild-brained reloruiers ever think that
even if Ihey were successful in bringing almut I bis desired change that the
wai ers of the bay would still lash the
shore of Toronto and lhat the wind
would continue to whistle through the
whiskers of lbe windy city just lhe

where although not perfectly nois-less,
yel will (as ibe margarine sellers say)
he found an excellent substitute.
We feel it out duty to apologize to
the 0. P. R. Company for not getting
out and ink edition in honor of the
first daily 'rain In Midway, as did a
number of Boundary papers when a
sin iiar  event occurred over  a year
ago.   I' Is nol ■■'■ (led   as an act of
liisioin tesy on oui part in nol doing so
for our intentions were of the best. Al
the time ihe other papers were indulging in warpaint we purchased a large
supply uf the highest grade red ink
lhat credit could nny, fill y intending
to suitably celebrate thn event by
gelling out one of Ihe gaudiest little
sheels ever published wesl of the red
ink belt, but we have lieen using a
little of it from time lo lime, during
lhe past year, trying to lend color lo
lhe C, I'. It, Company's promises io
run daily trains lo Midway, until when
the real thing rook place we found
our supply entirely exhausted. We
trust thai this explanation will he all
that is necessary especially to the
higher officials, whose promises when
assayed do not run sufficiently high lo
justify people in taking any slock in
them.
Attention is now being directed tn
Midway. The various towns in the
Boundary to thu east of here have
each in turn had their busy time, some
hi ill continue to grow and prosper ti bile
others having nothing to justify a
town in that particular location nre nt
a standstill. It is only natiual lhat
Midway should be the last town in the
Boundary to tome into prominence,
situate as it is in the extreme western
part of Ihe district it was Ihe last lo
receive railway communication, but
Ihu I mining of daily trains has marked
a new era in ibe advancement of the
town, We are not experiencing u
boom, and we have seen just, enough
nf boom towns in the west not to
want ne. Wc prefer a steady growth
such as we are having, There is no
better indication ofa town's prosperity
than an increased demand for real
estate, and we helieve lhat the number

There seems to be a diversity of
opinion as to Iho date of election in
this province. A number of cnnsl
papers have piihlisheo articles tn the
effect that il has been changed from
Nov. 7 to a later dale, and the Industrial World, nf Hossland, claims tn be
in possession of information corroborating the statement, while lbe Rossland
Miner Bays that it is not only improbable but contrary In the statutes tn
hold thc election laler thin lhat already set ns none of Ihedi-driets in Ihis
Province come uiuler the section nf
Ihe act which says :—"The Governor
General shall, except as heretofore
mentioned, liu the day for Ihe nomination of candidates at lbe election, and
shall, at every general election, fix one
and the same day for the nomination
of candidates In all the olectorlal dislrict of Algnnia and Nipissing, in the
Province of Ontario, and of Gnspe and
Chieoiilinii and Siigiieiuiy, iu the
Province of Quebec'' In the districts
excepted, the returning officer fixes
the day, tobe not less than 1,1 nor
more than HO days later than the
others. Then again it is claimed that
on account of lhe remoteness of many
of the elections of Yule-Ouriboo-Knot*

weeks later iu the constituency and
that the matter will be left, wilh reluming officer D, J. McDonald to set.
the exact dale, so lhat with so many
opinions on the matter it is difficult at
present to say just what the date will
be.
In Chicago the domestic servant
question has taken on a new phase,
Bays the "Globe," A lady, who is
described as i fashionable modiste, had
in her service a girl named Hannah.
Monday wbb the washing day, and the
girl was asked lo rise at 3 o'clock in
ihe niuiiiing and begin Ihe process of
purification, Her, voice, like lhat of
the sluggard in the poem, was heard
to complain, "You have waked me too
soon, I must, slumber again." She
turned over, and wjis in Ihe midst of a
dream about a machine by whicli au
indefinite number of dollies could ho
washed by merely pressing a button,
when ihe mistress "charged in wiih a
supply of eggs, intended for the morning's repast, and commenced a fosil-
ade." lt is needless lo say that Hannah
was taken at a disadvantage by the
surprising character nf Ihe attack.
The use of eggs as a means of arousing
a domestic from her slum ber is irregular and withoiitprecedent. The hreesy
call of incense-breathing innrm, Ibe
swallow twittering from its straw-built
shed, the cock's shrill clarion or the
echoing horn, are all recognized aids
to the alarm clock, but classic literature contains no reference lo eggs.
The only precedent for Ihe use of eggs
as missiles is iu making a demonstration against.the utterance of unpopular
opinions. The supply of eggs being
exhausted and the fury of t he modiste
abated, the victim made her way to a
police station, and declared that she
had been the Object of a murderous
assault, Large quantities of eggshells
were removed fiom her hair, and a
warrant was issued for the arrest of
ihe assailant. The moral to be drawn
from   Ihis  incident seems to be the
showing how large fortunes have been
amassed and scholarship and fame acquired by rising willi Ihe lark. There
is no such relation between a man or
woman and a lark as calls for Iheir
leaving their beds at the same hour.
If theie were, it would seeui proper
nnl lhat the lark should set lhe pace,
hilt that he should wait respectfully
for the man or woman, as belonging
ton superior order of creation, The
proverb that lhe early bird gets the
Hist worms is a matter of no consequence to anyone hut a fisherman, and
for purposes of bait there Is no reason
to suppose Ihnt the first, second or
third worm is any more attractive
than Ihe last. Nor Is it proved beyond doubt that the practice of early
rising makes n man healthy and
wise. There nre large numbers of
wealthy men who do not reach their
offices until 10 o'clock, and who, hy
making profitable deals in pork, easilv
overtake those who have been down
town for two or three hours. There
are also persons who ascribe Iheir
robust health lo gelling up when tbey
feel like it, lt would appear that the
lady in this case had lieen poring
over the literature of early rising until her bruin became disordered, nml
she imagined I hat she could furl her I he
movement by violence. Let us be warned by her example not to be loo ready
to believe and act upon proverbs and
conventional maxims of all kinds.

DR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER
can be depended upon always to make the food light,
sweet, delicious and wholesome. This is because it
is scientifically and accurately combined and contains the purest grape cream of tartar, the most
healthful of all fruit acids, used for a hundred years
in the finest leavening preparations.
PRICE BAKING POWDER CO.,
CHICAGO.
Notb.—There are many alleged cream of
tartar baking powders upon the market
sold at lower prices, which prove, upon
analysis, to tie alum powders in disguise. Alum is a corrosive poison,
which must not be taken in the food.
