>ARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS have revolutionized tatormtkinD;-they are TEMPERED BY ELECTRICITY, which is
OUR OWN EXCLUSIVE SECRET PROCESS-the iteel used in their manufacture is of the finest English and
Swedish make. This wonderful discovery is the result of years of experiment and study, and at last there has been
produced a razor that will shave any beard, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH.
ELECTRIC TEMPERING adds CARBON to the iteel; whereas tempering: by fire, (the only other method known for
centuries) DESTROYS the CARBON which is the life of steel. Mother makes of razors must be HONED AND GROUND
often, as their blades will NOT hold an edge any length of time. CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS do not require HONING
or GRINDING during ft lifetime in private use; they are all tempered alike, every part of thr<r blades being subjected to
METHOD, the most expensive grinding known.
YOUR DEALER will deliver to you one of these CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS on 30 days' trial without
obligation on your part to purchase—take advantage of this opportunity. Break away from the barber habit 1 You will save
$5000 annually.
Call on our representatives in your town, and request a copy of "Hints On Shaving"—This booklet illustrates the
correct razor position for shaving every part of the face (ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN FROM LIFE)—it also tells
you HOW TO STROP A RAZOR PROPERLY; should our dealer be out of them, drop us a card, and we will send you
one by return mail.

^\ N April 1st We decided to take over Hill fc Co's stock of
^^ Furniture, Carpets and Rugs. After invoicing the stock we
found it much larger than we anticipated. To reduce the stock
to a satisfactory point we decided to reduce prices, and judging by
the amount of business we have done in this department, we
believe  that OUR prices have been found very satisfactory.
Mr. Geo. Chapman has charge of this new department, which is_lo-
cated on the second floor formerly occupied by the tailoring department
and stock rooms. He will be glad to meet all his old friends. By courteous attention and thoroughly dependable goods at lowest prices, we
hope to make this department as popular in East Kootenay as are the
other departments in our big  store.
If You Require Anything For Your Home, Such as:
Carpets, Rugs, Mats, Iron or Brass Beds,  Sideboards,   Buffets,
Lounges, Davenports, China or Music Cabinets, Morris
Chairs,   Rockers,   Easy Chairs, Dining Chairs,
Dining Tables, Writing   Desks, Rattan Goods,
Dressers,   Stands,  Wardrobes,   Carpets
Rugs  and- Mats.
It Will Pay You Well to Inspect our Stock   Before Buying.
Our stock of Leather Chairs and Lounges is very large and well assorted and
the prices make you feel like buying.
We have a quantity of carpet Remnants and Fringe, from which we can make
mats at very low prices.

The strongest minds have gotten tholr
Inspiration direct from Nature, Nature
is tli<- L'lval teacher of mankind, Wo
eiin look to .Suture for all our needs, In
tlm recent Russo-Japanese war the surgeons of tho .Japanese navy and army
discovered thai wounds would hen I mora
rapidly and with bettor success if left to
.Nature, They washed tho wounds with
water which hud been boiled and thus
sterilized—then bandaged the wounds
WltJj clean linen—no powerful drugs or
antiseptics wore used In their tirst aid to
the Injured, Such methods resulted In
tlie loss nf only B3 out of 088 men treated
In a iiiival hospital for their wounds, lt
Is only from lark of observing Nature's
laws that most of us suffer at one time
or another from indigestion, impure
blood nnd a generally run-down system.
Our remedy lies in Nature's laboratory—
deep in tho fragrant wot nls—where are
ninny American plants, tho roots of
which when properly treated will BUp-
na health-giving tonic.
[any years ago a physician who had
an extensive practice among the afflicted
made a striking departure from the usual
methods of his confreres In medicine—he
went straight i*» Nature for the cure of
those stomach djsordora which resulted
so often in nu amende condition, or Impure bloodt loss of appetite, pale or
pimply skin, feeling of lassitude and
weakness. Iin found thut tho bark of
the Bluck Cherry-tree, the root of the
Mandrake, Stone root. Queen's root,
Bloodroot and Ooldon Seal root, made
Into a scientific, non-alcoholic extract by
the use of glycorlno. made tlio best alterative and tonic. The refreshing Influence"
of this extract is at once apparent in the
recovered strength of the patient—tho
vital tires of ihu body bum brighter and
their Incronsod activity consumes tho
tissue rubbish which otherwise may
poison the syslem. This altorativo and
tonic extract, has been found to .stand
alono as a safe. Invigorating tonic, as It
does not depend on alcohol for a falsa
stimulation, bm is Nature's own method
of strengthening and cleansing the system. It tones up the stomach and tho
blood Iu Nature's own way, It Is well
known all over tlio world ,is Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. The name
was given to this vegetable compound
because one of tho important ingredients
was Golden Seal root. * * * Much an
authority us Dr. Roborts Bartholow, of
Jefferson Medical College, says "very useful as a stomacblc tonic Cures catarrh
of the stomach and headaches accompanying the same." Dr. Drover Coo, in
bis book Organic Medicines, speaking of
Golden Seal root, says that "as a liver
invlgorator it has fcto equals." Further
he soys,*1 in chronic hi (lain mat-ion of tbe
bladder we doom it one..f the most reliable agents of cure. As a tonic in tbe
convalescing stages of fevers, imeumonla,
dysentery and othnr acuto diseases Hy-
drastls (Golden Seal root) is peculiarly
llr. Coo continues: "Wo would here
adil that our experience has demonstrated the Hydrastis or Golden Seal root
to be a valuable remedy in bronchitis,
laryngitis, and other affections of the
respiratory organs."
"Of service; in chronic catarrh of the
Stomach aud bowel* following abuse of
alcohol, a tonic after malarial fever.
Has a distinct, anti-malarial influence.
Good In all catarrhal conditions, us
uterine catarrh, leneurrhcea, etc. Is a
curative agent in chronic dvapopsla."

of Pennsylvania.
Prof. John M. Scudder In Specific Medication says: " It stimulates the digestive processes, anil increases tho assimilation of food, lly these means tho blond
is enriched, nnd this blood feeds tlio
muscular system. I mention tlio muscular system because I believe ft first
feels the Inereaeii power imparted by
the stimulation of increased nutrition.
The consequent improvement on tho
nervous and glandular systems nro
natural results.
In relation to Its general effects on
tlm system, there in nu medicine in vsb
about whleh tisercin auch tfcncral miivi-
imltji of opinion. It Is universally regarded as the ton!.! ua-ful in all debilitated states."
After many years of study and laboratory work Dr. it. V, I'ierco produced
the most happy combination of this
Golden Heal root with oilier ofllcactoua
roots—enhancing and Incn using in curative power these na'.lvo plants from our
American forests bj i,he addition of chemically pure glycerine, of | ri per strength,
which Is far bettor than alcohol, both
for extracting and preserving tho medicinal principles residing In pi nits. Glycorlno Itself Is useful in medicine to subdue Inflammation and by cleansing tho
membrane of the Blomnch of abnormal
secretions aids in the cure of dyspepsia,
and stomach and Intosttuul troubles.

"Slippery" Mr. Pugsley cannot get
away from the report of the roynl
commission by saying that it wns
The revenue (if Canada in the last
fiscal year wns $83,100,625; tbe expenditure was $113,060,181, Tbe public
debt on March 31st was $307,312,822.
Hon. F, J. Fulton, K.O., commissioner of Lands und Works, has been
appointed acting attorney general for
British Columbia during Hon. Mr.
Bowser's absence in England.
• • • •
Hon. Mr. Pugsley 1ms few sympathisers, but, after ull, are not bis liberal friends in the house of commons
making themselves ridiculous in their
attempts to keep him from sending
in his resignation.
The Grand Trunk Loan is under fire
at Ottawa. The bombardment is
coming from the opposition, who are
not in favor of the government building the road, and then give it to the
G. T. P. Company.
It is reported that twenty-five of
the young women ln London are being instructed in Jiu-Jltsu so ns to
be able to cope with tbe police when
next arrests of suffragettes are attempted.
In a recent speech Sir Wilfrid said
"that he was proud of Hon. Wm.
Pugsley." We have not heard it reported that he wns proud of Emmer-
son, Sifton, or Hyman, all members
of his cabinet who resigned when confronted with proof of grafting.
The British bouse of commons is
being urged by the general public of
Great Britain to maintain her supremacy in the air as well as on the sea.
by building airships. Thc present activity of Germany to this end is
viewed with Increasing alarm.
The Canadian Northern Railway
Co., asked the Ontario government
for a subsidy that would have amounted to $1,600,000, and it was refused. Tho Grand Trunk Pacific got
over $150,000,000 from the Dominion
government. We wonder which of the
two governments served tbe best interests of the people.
« * * »
It is only a question of a very short
time before Hon. Wm. Pugsley tenders his resignation, which is snid to
be demanded by many liberal members as well us the opposition. Sir
Wilfrid will soon get busy and want
to clean up and get rid of an element.
in his cabinet whicli has discredited
it for so long.
Immigration figures given out by
the Immigration Department show
that the number and class of Americans now coming into Canada have
never been equalled in Western Canada's history. Since the season opened the average has been 200 Americans n day, excluding children. Three
thousand came in February, 7,000 in
March, nnd 6,000 for tbe first half of
the present month.

The city council for the past two
meetings have been discussing the advisability of the city borrowing $10,-
000 for sidewalk and street improvements. We have gone along fairly
well in the matter of sidewalks but
the street improvement has been slow
principally for the reason that sufficient funds were not available. . The
Council puts the question to the people, who will have to decide the matter by their ballots.
• • * •
Where the public money goes. The
public expenditures of the Dominion
for the fiscal year ending Mnrcn 31,
exceeded the receipts by over $30,000-
000, while for thc previous year there
was a deficit of over $16,000,000, or a
total of about $47,000,00(1 for the two
years which had to he provided for
by the floating of loans. Practically
all of this money has gone into the
construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific, in other words, the country Is
now running into debt to build n
railway for the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Mr. Pugsley has been charged with
misappropriating public money. His
friends sny that the Royal commission which investigated these charges
were partisan. The commission conr
sisted of Judge Landry of the supreme court of New Brunswick, who
was chairman; Mr. F. Mncdougall of
Moncton, and Mr. N. I. Tweedie of
St. Stephen. These are all well
known men in New Brunswick, whose
probity is unchallenged save by Mr.
Pugsley, nnd would not lend their
nnmes to a report unless substantiated by sworn evidence, und not for
political put poses.
A commission appointed by a provincial government, antagonistic to
Hon. Wm. Pugsley has reported on
an inquiry into the affaire of tbe New
Brunswick Central Rullway. The
commission reports that there is a
discrepancy of $134,000 in the account
and connects therewith thc names of
Lieutenant-governor Tweedie and Mr.
Pugsley. The latter declares that the
commission was a partisan one, and
makes a statement tending to show
that the accounting fails to include
important items from the totals.
The commissioners recommend that:
Messrs. Tweedie and Pugsley be proceeded against for a recovery of $134,-
000. The New Brunswick government
must accept this recommendation.
The whole matter will therefore bo
submitted to the courts, where the
province may hope to secure justice.
Hon. Win, Pugsley, minister of pub-
c works, in the Laurier government,
was asked if there were any truth in
the rumor that, he would resign his
seat in the cabinet, Mr. Pugsley replied : "I do not see any reason why
1 should do so." Possibly Mr, Pugsley may have done things which ho
should not have done, and possibly
believes his resignation would disturb
a government already too much disturbed hy such ministers ns Sifton,
Hymun and Emmereon. It might be
easier for Mr. Pugsley to resign than
to hold on. But It will make no difference to the enemies or friends of
Mr. Pugsley whether he resigns or
not, as thc matter is sure to be investigated ln the public courts.
