Thinks Dead Man
May be His Son
Chief  Constable  Parry has received
another letter     regarding the     body
recently taken from the Columbia  in
lower town.   Isaac Somers of Victor- j
ia writes that his Bon Fred J. Somers  was lost in tbe Big Bend iu the
latter part of     May,    1911,   and he
thinks the body may be that of    his
son.   If it were thought feasible    Mr.
Somers would come to Revelstoke and
have the body exhumed for his     inspection.   His  son   was Sft.   "-in.      in
height,  weighed   1 bulbs.,  was 30 years
of age and had dark  hair and     eyebrows  with   nose  wide  between     the
eyes.   There  were  no marks on     his
tody by which  he  could be  identified.
The Chief will     write    Mr.  Somers
i thut he is convinced  that  the    body
I found in the Columbia  was not  that

on advertising and never will. They
are the people who deliberately neglect a duty to themselves and to the
c.immunity. They are small men who
will never grow uny larger. Their
mental calibre is such that they cannot understand an argument unless it
is forced in with a sledgehammer.
There are two ways to make a lot
of money. One is by creating a coni-
I ination or trust and controlling the
market for a certain commodity. Thc
other is by making or selling honest
goods and letting the public know
i bout It. If a man's business depends on selling shoddy goods at a
large profit, advertising will not help
him much. His customers will not
come back for more. If he has thc
goods to hack up his advertising he
stands a good chance of becoming successful.
The advertising columns of a newspaper are a necessary adjunct to the
manufacturer or merchant, who desires
trade. This is recognized in certain
lines ol business wuere it becomes an
absolute necessity. Theatres and department stores depend almost entirely upon the newspaper advertising
!-'mailer enterprises sometimes argue
that they cannot afford it, which is
the mobt unreasonable argument any
one can iffer. They cannot afford to
do business if they cannot afford to
advertise. As a rule the man who
does not advertise is the man who
1 .is nothing to oiler. He has no enterprise and depends entirely upon
the necessities of the community. He
takes his chance with hundreds of
others being on the spot when some-
I ody wants something. Never seek
inK to create a want, he sits at the-
hack of his shop and w;iits for a customer.
Fortunes have been built up
through   advertising.    Certain   brands
of cereal f :- an   sold from roast to
coast merely because they are well
advertised, Thej maj not he much
superior to other brands, hut their
lallt 11 ^ are known to the people .mi! they demand the goods that
ire advertised. Ti.e- same is true of
tdvertise tobi
undred  other things,

is- to be (started al Beveral points at
once upon the ni-riva) of large ship-
■seuts of rails now en route from the
«is-t. Sufficient steel for the com-
lilctiou of the various links along the
main line and for 120 miles of track on
Vancouver Island Ims been purchased.
Advices to this effect were reoelved
ji* the local offices of the Canadian
Northern Paoiflc Railway tbis
The work of installing the rails is to
be proceeded with from the eastern
*ml of construction, ;i few miles on the
.British Columbia side of the Yellow-
jhc.-ni Puss, from Kamloops north towards Albreda summit along the
Thompson River west of  Kamloops,

irom the Port Mann end, juat as soon
as the bridge at 'h.-u point is completed,
More than 15,000 tons of rail will he
shipped to British Columbia for the
uncompleted sect inns,of this Huuu tons
will be Bent to Kamloops, 6000 to Port
Alain, 17,000 to the end of steel near
the fellowhead, and 15,000 tons to
Vancouver Island.
A large amount ofbtidge building
still remains to be done oti the Canadian Northern Pacilic Railway route
ethrough British Columbia before the
main line cm) 1*- linked up. All of the
structures are in process ol erection
and a great many bave already been
completed. Some delay lias heen experienced with the bridge at Cisco on
Account of a huge derrick falling into
the liver a tew weeks ago, but it is
rxpected that it will lie ready for
traffic early in September.     As soon
as it is finished track laying will lie
rushed ahead from present end of steel
near Cisco, on the south side of the
■Hood progress is being made with
the   other   budges along  the   Fraser
and Thompson near Lytton. Bridge
ii umber two, bull" a mile below Lytton
is rapidly nearing completion, and
bridge number three, a short distance
further east, has been practioally finished. Four other structures along the
Thompson east of Lytton have been
ready for traffic for some time.
Grading along tbe entire route of
the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway, north of Kamloops to the
Alberta boundary, with the exception
ol'a small section on this side of the
Albreda summit, has been done and
bridge work at several points on the
division is being pushed.
Steel has been laid on JIM miles of
the 108 miles of line in British Columbia, leaving 2:111 miles on which track
lias yet to be installed.
Within the course jf the next few-
weeks it will be possible for visitors
from Vancouver to make the journey
to the oil borings at Sturgeon slough
by  automobile.
Several hundred residents from Ver-
I i.ou and lake points     were guests ot
the Canadian Pacilic railway on Friday of last     week, when  a  trial run
was given the new     steamer    "Sicumous."   A free     train wns run     between Vernon and Okanagan Landing
und several      Vernon people    availed
'i themselves of the opportunity of seeing the new steamer, nnd  having   a
delightful lake trip without cost. At
11 o'clock in the morning the "Sicamous"  left    Okanagan Landing with
flags flying.   Clear to Penticton went
the new boat, picking up a large nuin-
i ber of passengers at each stop.   The
Vernon travellers returned to the city"
in a  special stub train run  from the
Landing at 9 o'clock  in  the  evening.

Elaborate regulations have been issued by the naval department governing the issuing of licenses and tbe
control of the operation of all radio
telegraph / equipments in Canada,
whether in the hands of amateurs or
for commercial purposes, either on
land or in Canadian registered ves -

the uniform     rules   drawn   up   two
years ago by the International Radio

not only to the professional wireless
operator, but also to the hundreds of
amateii operators throughout Canada, whose Indiscriminate sending out

Interference with the work of government or commercial stations.

Nn  knighthood   was ever  better  deserved th.m   that    conferred    by the
King upon Right Hon. ll. 1.. Borden,
Premlei oi Canada.
Since ins accession to the premiership Sir Hubert Borden hus performed splendid service for thc Dominion
and his loyalty to thc cause of Imperialism in its best sense has well
■merited recognition at the bands of
I,is sovereign.
His attitude towards Canada's participation in the naval defence of tbe
Empire and his stout opposition to
the fnrciL-n domination which he foresaw as a sequel to the reciprocity
policy of thc Laurier government
demonstrated the staunchness of his
Canadlanisir. and the sincerity of his
championship of the best interests uf
thc Empire, of which Canada is a
HiH devotion to public duty hus
won the admiration of political foes
;.- well as eif his friends. He is a
statesman in all the best that thc
Mierd  Implies.    No one accuses bim of
beings self-seeker or a sell advertiser. His methods are not spectacular
but he is endowed win shrewd com-
. he places always the m
terests of the country before mere
-.n advantage, be has won the
wholehearted loyalty of his followers
.••nd he is making for himself a great
name in the history  "f Canada.
When  the  crops fail   it is hard    to
escape      adversity.    When  crops      are
such us is now promised it is equally
difficult to escape prosperity. This
year's harvest is not a mutter of psy
Cbology except perhaps planters are
still doing all in their power to produce scarcity prices by predicting
tbem,  and  may  yet      be disappointed
to find how well tho abundance of
their yield makes good the deficiency
in price. As regards other crops prediction is fast passing into realization ns to both yield und price. Thc
winter wheat crop is made. Nature's
part is done, und it remains only to
harvest tho 638,000,000 bushels which
are in sight. An increase of 114,000,-
000 bushels above thc previous mux-
imum is a sud blow to the pessimists.—Now  York Times.

The speed} justice that bus been

A strong ally for the agitators of
anti-cigarette luws has arisen in the
nitrate of silver remedy for which is
claimed thousands of cures from the
cigarette habit. Those cures are boys
who are just beginning thc habit and
the effect is obtained by having n
little nitrate Of silver rubbed upon
the tonsils. The discovery waB niudc
some time ago thnt a very weak solution of this drug used in this manner has tho peculiar quality of causing ,a revulsion for tobacco on thc
part of the smoker.
Tho measure of the cure sounds
Bomewhat drastic, yet tho assertion is
made on medical authority that tho
solution of nitrate of silver is so very
weak that the risk is slight even although a slight portion bo accidentally swallowed. The mouth is rinsed
i ut after each monl for a week und
then once a day for thc next week.
'Ihis  treatment,   coupled   with  careful
(Hot, abstinence in regard to nlcobol
and the hearty co-operation of family
and friends have the desired effect it
is claimed,
The discovery is an important one
and one that can stand auy amount
of exploiting. Tlio cignrott.e habit iir
all too prevalent, especially among
minors, und to crontc a .positive dia-
taste'for the evil on the part of tbe

good authority to be genuine and ef-
fective, is one which tho W.C.T.U.

lime nnd schist with a bl inket vein.

conveying the water to the mill. The

ore averaged  from  ~>7.o to 61 ounces
silver per ton,  and till per cent  to 72
per cent  lead.   There are  other    outcrops of ore along tbe contact vein,
but no  development  work   has    heen
done on tbem at the time the writer

fully warranted exploration, as it was
possible shoots of ore similar to that j
forming the  main   ore body formerly !

Illecillewaet where the Lanark mine i
is located,  was at  al." time the   can- ',
tre   of   a    population of several  hundred  people  and   many   unnerul  loca- i
tions   were   made   on   the  surrounding ,
mountains,   It still has   possibilities.
as a mining camp. Tbe Closing
down of the  Lanark   mine and  of  the
Tangier and Waverley mines on   the
north  fork  of the  Illecillewaet  river, .
about  IS08, gave the district a  black,
eye from a   mining   point    of      view.
Other  properties in thc locality   are |
the   Round   Hill,   where  ore   was      reported     running ><>_• to j*:' In silver
and 52 to To per cent lend; the Don-
showings of zinc ore, with some ga«

group near the DunvegSJi; the .Juin-
lo on the north fork slope; the N'ortb
Star; the OsrOgie and Reggie, 19
mile:    up   the   north   folk.    Bome      of
these properties were small shippers,
For instance, from the Dunvegsn I*
tolls of ore shipped  to  San   Francisco
gave returns of IM) ouncu silver and

shipped  1^  tons.   About $15,000    was:
expended   in  development  oi the  Waverley  and   Tangier,   and a   plant   was
shipped   for      installation.    .Sufficient .
interest  has   not   since  developed    in
the camp to ascertain whether or not
these  properties have any   merit.
