The second period of the prospector's contest came to an end on Wednesday night. The contest tor the
•fi0.no cash prize ended at the same
time and to say that the competition
for this prize was strenuous, is but
putting it mildly. Robert A. Pye,
the youngest contestant in the held
is the winner of tbe casta prize and
with it, the leadership in the great
contest. Today, he is receiving congratulations trom many friends who
are glad to hear of his success and
his ambitions nre now set on the cap
ital prize. Master Pye will be one ot
the strongest contenders for the first
place when the contest closes.
There are a number of other nctive
candidates who accomplished splendid results during the second period.
Time will not permit of going into
detnils but the votes published to the
credit of the different contestants
speaks volumes. No one has a lead
which cannot be overtaken and the
race will be won by those who puts
forth their best efforts during the remaining days   of   the   contest.    Por
the steady  worker  there Is yet tbe
opportunity of a lifetime.
Nearly everybody reads the Prospector now.
The candidates in the great voting
contest are turning in subscriptions
faster than the circulation department, with its increased force, can
handle them. No effort Is being spar
ed to start the new orders with the
utmost despatch; however, when the
conjestion is considered, the circulation staff is doing well indeed.
The quality of the Prospector, as a
newspaper, (not an organ) and the
earnestness of the many candidates
presenting its claims to recognition,
provide an irreBlstahle combination. I
Each week the contest shows an la-
crease over the preceedlng week and
the aggregate means hundreds of new
paid in advaace subscriptions for the j
The above in a source of satisfac-
tlon to the advertisers whose message
Is carried to a larger number of home
than ever before; satisfaction to the '
readers who hod every  page ol thel
Prospector more appealing than ever;
satisfaction to the candidates who
ure working for tne votes which will
win them the $2,000 In prizes and
satisfaction to the Prospector, whicli
duds In' all this, ample justification
for the inauguration of the grent con
test enterprise.
Tne value of the cupital prize Is so
great and the competition for it is
so eager that the contest is taking
00 the character of a political campaign. Many rumors ol the proposed
plans of the candidates are current
but it is exceedingly difficult to arrive at a correct estimate of the resources und intentions of any candidate. In fact it can safely he .declared tbat the real purpose of the
workers will not be revealed until the
contest is over. The contest department knows very little regarding the
work which will he performed during
the next two weeks. The concern ot
the contest staff is in the general results and the contest. Such conll-
dences ub are given by the contestants will he respected and those who
hope to learn something of the plans
of their rivals will be unable to learn
from the Prospector. The beBt possible way is to proceed without regard to what the others are doing.
The most votes wilt win, therefore
get the most votes.
Tbe contest, will close on August 17
There will be no extentiou under uny
pretext. This means that just two
weeks remain in which to win the
valuable prizes. Every day is an important one. Don't neglect n single
opportunity to secure tbe winning

Summer School
The summer school held at Moyie
last week by the Kast Kootenay district of the Methodist church, was an
unqualified success.
The camp was situated at Aurora
Cove on the opposite side of the lake
from Moyie, tbe location was an admirable one, and owing to the generosity of Mr. K. A. Hill, who with
his gasoline launch met every train,
no inconvenience whatever was experienced because of the isolation of the
Tne department of Bible study under the direction of Rev. K. A.
Smith was a grand series on the life
if Paul. Mr. Smith dealt with his
subject in a broad way. His viewpoint was that of modern scholarship, which linked with a sincere
spiritual interpretation made every
lecture an inspiration. The geniality,
comradeship and wit of Mr. Smith
had no smalt part in making the
school, as a whole, a splendid sue
llev. W. Irwin, of the Department
of Social and Moral Return., presented the social problem facing tbe
church in a truly scientific treatment

Mrs. Simpson Hayes of Winnipeg,
a well known story writer, was
of the passengers on tiie Empress of
Britain last week, returning home
from a tour of Wales uud tbe North
of Ireland, in the interests of feminine emigration to Canada.
Asked about the reported statement
of 5,000 women being wanted as
wives in western Canada- Mrs. Hayes
denied the story, and added that It
was "utter rot."
"A statement of the kind," Mrs.
Hayes snid, "was mnde to the farmers wives a year or two agu, supposedly by one in the interests of immigration and instead of assisting
the work it had the effect of keeping
out of Canada at least 10,00(1 suit-
aide women, und at the present mo
ment it still has an effect which is
detrimental to Immigration,"
Mrs. Hayes said that she hud heen
touring for five months and consequently hud un opportunity of judging und speaking to the women at
the many central points in the districts she had covered, and in every
I winning | centre she found a capital class, well
adapted for life In Canada, "After
four years experience in the Immigration work 1 state most emphatically
that the class of Immigration which
is pouring into Canada is steadily
reaching a higher plane and that the
country Is now getting tho class of

Cbe Beacb Girl and F)er Stunning ]Vew Belongings
THE beach girl will be a dls
tinct feature of attractive
femininity this summer. She
has always been a factor
lo be reckoned with at the seashore,
t>ut thore Is every reason to believe
that she is going to be more prominently ln the picture this season than
•vew before In her smiling, lovely existence Tojschleve the distinction of
being a beach beauty requires considerable artistic .ability of a sartorial
•nd scenic sort She must be able to
arrange the stage setting In an effec
tlve fashion, always taking Into aa
count tht personal equation.
The beach girl, for example, must be
Very careful In the selection of her
beach umbrella. Its canvas colorings
must harmonize and not clash with
her costumes, for under the hospitable
•hade of this umbrella milady will hold
tier court on the sand. A lazy sand
chair and perhaps a cozy rug for chilly
mornings are requisites of the beach
Several sets of chair cushions will be
absolutely necessary. Neutral tints,
■s a rule, are the safest to own, but
the beach girl will never forget the effectiveness of bright red slllt cushions
When she gracefully reclines ln her
•and chair gowned In dainty white
from the top of her pretty little head
to the tip of her well booted foot As
this Is to be another "white year," the
red cushions are likely to play a large
part In the beach picture.
And, tn connection with white frocks,
fiow do you like the white ratine gown
among the illustrations? This little
frock haa the low armhole now fashionable for all outing costumes and the
new sash, which bai two short ends
•Imply folded or lapped over the belt
portion. White buckskin button boots
make the frock very smart
And ln connection with footwear
■enslble models for country and seashore wear are abroad this summer.
The pretty, high heeled pumps and
buttoned boots which are so smart and
trim with conventional garb may be
sacrificed on the beach for canvas or
buckskin ties, lacing high over the Instep and having stout soles and low
broad heels.   The white shoe Is ao cool
and summery looking and Is so easily
kept spick and span that It Is no trouble to wear lt even If one has to be
one's own maid.
Silk bathing suits will be In evidence
this summer quite as much as they
have been  for the past few seasons.
And a clever girl I know, one of the
beach beauty cult, has made for herself a stunning bathing suit out of an
old ball gown. Clever, wasn't Bhe?
The frock was of whitewicssuline, and
the skirt was one of the tight "hobble"
affairs that never could go In the wa
ter In Its sheath-IIke proportions, so
the clever little lady widened the skirt
by applying panels of striped taffeta.
which really Improved the appearance
of the costume, The white mensallne
formed a bib over a bodice of striped
But the wise beach girl la going to
have a sturdy little knitted suit;
silk costume for her. Heavy breakers
that pull to pieces a silk bathing suit
ln no time ot all have no effect on one
of these knitted costumes. Tou can
see for yourself how natty such a bath
Ing suit Is by glancing at the model
pictured. Jersey and trunks are of
knitted worsted, and the short plaited
skirt of mohair Is strengthened by Its
stitched braid trimming. The collar
and tie match the skirt material.
Co -Cdasb and Iron Cbint2
JkfANY housewives are afraid to at-
tempt the washing of chintzes at
home, but there need be no fear of doing th* laundering at home lf these
directions are followed:
Shake the loose dust from the
chintz, or, If necessary, brush It off
with a soft brush. Soak the covers for
at least twelve hours, and if they are
very dirty change the water once or
If they are being washed for the flrst
time It la well to add salt to the steeping water to prevent the color from
running, though generally the colors ln
chintz are quite fast
Shred some plain yellow soap and
dissolve lt tn boiling water, making a
plentiful supply If there are many covers to be washed. Add enough of the
soap to a tub of warm water to make
a good lather. If the water Is hard
add a llttlo ammonia.
Wring the rovers out of cold water
and squeeze, rub and pound Ihem well
In soapy water. Change the water once
or twice ai required. Dn not rub soap
on unless you nre euro the colors are
fast. When clean wring out and rinse
In several waters, beginning with tepid
and finishing with cold. Salt should
be added again to the cold water If the
colors are Inclined to run. Wring out
thoroughly and starch In a fairly thick
hot starch, to which should be added
some shredded white wax and a Httle
borax dissolved ln hot water.
Hong out to dry, and when quite dry
starch a second time, rubbing the
starch well into the material. Hang up
again until they are hatf dry, when
they are ready for Ironing.
The Irons must be hot, and heavy
ones are best for this purpose. Rub
them wilh beeswax before using to
keep them smooth.
Iron tho covers In the usual way, and
when quite dry wipe over with a damp
rag, a piece at a time, and polish with
a polishing Iron on a smooth, uncovered board. The polishing Iron must
bo very hot nnd requires a grent deal
of pressure. This Is the heaviest part
of tho process. Unless a very high
polish Is required the flrst Ironing may
be considered sufficient.

a pneumatic cleaner.
Several weeks before the money ww
paid over to her a woman friend bewailed the fact that she could not afford to have her house cleaned by a
professional, neither could she afford a
pneumatla cleaner of her own. "I would-
like to rent one by the day it I knew
some one who wooAd let me try It."
The hearer went at once on a tour of
Inspection of pneumatla clei^ifrs. Tho
advantages of various makes were
carefully studied, and ono was Anally
selected thut came wlthU the hundred
dollar limit
After purchasing the cleaner and
mastering Its Intricacies the girl's first
visit wus to the friend who had given
her the Idea. "I have a pneumatic
cleaner to rent What do you want
done and what would be a fair price to
charge?" lt was decided to rent the
machine for 15 cents un hour If tho
owner did not direct Its manipulations
and 30 cents an hour If she did.
An engagement was ninth* for three
houra of work every week, the girl to
tnko churgo of the maid and see that
tho house was thoroughly cleaned.
Later the owner uf tho cleaner sent
out n circular to her friends giving
prices for different nsm fur her machine. Sunn sho had more work than
she could do, and her legacy paid a
huge Interest* If there was a hurry or-
iltir moro was charged. There was also
an additional fee If she wiih expected to

In this latter case our editor was
fortunate enough about two years
ago to hear the principal of this
school address an audience on a week
night in this same church, and he dis
tinctly said that he was in Cranbrook
to try and get more students for the
college as the college was not paying
its wny; but, hy adding certain improvements to the school hotter facilities would he given. In a short
time, he went on to say, "what, with
the Increasing revenue derived f:
additional students the college would
be on a distinctly paying basis.
If these views, as expressed by the
principal wen- to be taken for anything at all, it just means nothing
more or Won than a business proposition: then why is it that when people go to church tn hear a sermon

and rightly expounded must they he

Fly Added $100 to the Entry
For several months an expert accountant searched the books of a certain grain company in St. Paul. Minn.,
for an eiror of an even $100. They
spent much mor i than $lu0 in trying
to trace the money. And then, after
having gone over the hooks time and
again, the accountant's pencil
chanced to stop at an item of $140.
The pencil point rested on the figure 1 when the figure suddenly broke
In two and slid down the page! Upon ex;-.mination it proved that the
supposed figure 1 was a fly's leg. The
fly had undoubtedly been crushed iu

Women in middle age often complain of hot flashes. They sre tt that stage
of life—whea their delicate organism needs • tonic and helping-hand which only Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription can give them. Many women suffer needlessly from
girlhood to womanhood and from motherhood to old age—with backache, dizziness or headache. A woman often becomes sleepless, nervous, " broken-down,"
irritable and feels tired from morning to night. When pains and aches rack thc
womanly system at frequent intervals, ask your neighbor about
Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
HtS. J. lliaor, of 321 S. BenUlon Street, Baltimore, Mil., m>-b: "I
wrote yon about nine months ago, tolling yon of my condition. I have a
fine btbj-ffW-ibe weighed nine poundi when born. She is my third child
and tha atrongest of tbem all. My suffering was only for two hour*. I
took Miami bottles of 'Favorite Tretcription' and one of Dr. Pierce's
Smart-Weed. I never had a well day before I took your modkines. I waa
surprised how well I feU-could rat-was always hungry.&nd neter had a
sick stomach. The nurse who was with me suld the medicine win wonderful because I got along: ao nicely after having had so much trouble before.
She intends to recommend It to alt her aulTerinr patiente. Everybody hi
astonished at me because I only weighed 102 pounds before and now I
weigh 1SS. I have had several ladies come to me ant] ask about Dr. Pierce's
medicine. I am willing to recommend it to al) who suffer and want holp.
If any want information I will be glsd to give it to them."

This contest is alone thc «anip lines as the
one which was so successful last year, except
that there are three times as many prizes, and
therefore three times as many chances for
each contestant to win. Kvery farmer in Canada who uses "Canada" Cement is eligible to
compete. The conditions are such that large
and small users of cement have equal opportunities to win a 150 prize.

In addition to thus heinr- divided into

Contest is also divided into nine divisions, one
for each province. So you see you need only
to compete with thc other farmers of your own
province, and not with those all over Canada.
Don't think that because you have never
used cement, you cannot win a prize. Many

Fruit Inspector Lyne, of British

lunds worthless for fruit growing pur
poses.    He says;
"There has been too much booming
of bottom lands for fruit purposes by
real estate men under thc Impression
that they would mnke sales in that
manner. In fact, bottom landa, gen-
erully s|ienking, are not well adapted
for fruit culture, though they are admirable fnr dairying and for that pur
pose they ought to he utilized and
could he with protlt. There are people struggling long trying to grow
fruit In bottom lands that should he
nourishing dairy districts, people
who have heen deluded Into buying
these bottom lands for fruit growing
make it failure ol their undertaking
and then run down the country and
everyone in It whom they think to he
In any wny responsible (or their attempts. On the other hand, (or dairy
