ln the Maritime Provinces.
St. Johns, Nfld., Match 21.���Incoming shipping brings no repor', of the
Allan liner Hnronian, Capt. Btodle,
from Glasgow, February 11, for St.
John, one month overdue. It is generally believed in marine circles here
that she foundered with all hands, or
that the sank from collision with ice
in tbe north Atlantic. There is a bare
possibility that she has been caught
in the ice floes aud that her crew has
been rescued by some sealing steamer,
as happened in thc case of another
steamship a lew years ago, hut this, it
is thought, is very unlikely.

temporary and will soon pass. Mr.
Macdonald, the head of tne firm, on
his recent visit Hero was greatly
pleased with the oity and expressed
himself a well satisfied with the pro-
gross the business was making here,
and thought the present depression
would be the best thing for the city
in the end, as it would tend to discourage tho speculative spirit which
had in the end so much interfered
with the progresB of so many western
cities and towns. In tho absence of
Mr. Chapman, George Nunn, who has

MAILS ARRIVE.
Tbe blockade of mails, which commenced a week ago Friday was partially broken yesterday by the arrival
of a few letters rom Eastern Canadian
points. Thore wero only 20 letters in
the lot all told. Last night howovor,
Postmaster Gibson received a wire
lrom Spokane announcing that five of
the belated trains had arrived there
between (1 and 7 p.m. lie expects a
good many hundred pounds of eastern
mail matter and doubts if lhe post-
office will be large enough to bold it
all. 'lho blockade was caused by one
of the severest snovvstoims known io
many years. The snowfall was so
deep that it was impossible to keep
the tracks clear. It extended from
Glendive, Mont., to St. Paul, Minn.,
and both the Great Northern and
Northern Pacific, were involved and
"tailed trains were buried in the snow
bunks every few miles. It bas been
a good many years since these two
transcontinental lines were blockaded
for so long a time, which is good evidence of the extent and fury of tho
storm. Tlie Canadian I'ac-ilie line did
not come within the full scope of tbe
fury ol the storm and was only blockaded fcr a period of 21 hours. The
British mails airived last night by
nay oi Rcvelbtoke and Airow lulus.

OUTDOOR SPOUTS, NEXT.
The open season in cenruencing and
may be seen in the opening buds and
the crocuses bursting through tbe
ground iD the gardens around the city
and soon these signs ot' spring mill
be followed by birds and flowers. As
we are an athletic people the thoughts
of the young naturally turns to foot
hall, baseball, lacrosse, boatiog and
fishing. Nelson has a number ot
promising utblete3 aud if they are
properly trained and organized
should make records foi thooiselves
during the present year.
A football team is alieady - being
assembled for the purpo-e of meetiug
lhe football team of Cranbrook next
week. This team should be strengthened ajid frequent practices should be
held s-j that it may bo in condition to
meet and defeat all comers. The
lacrosse team should be reorganized
for the season's games. It already
has some speedy players and with
practice it should be able to defeat
anything that Rossland, 'irand Forks,
Greenwood, Phoenix, Cranbrook or
l-'eniic may be able to get together. A
strong effort should be made to organize a first class baseball team tbis
year. Rossland has practically recovered from the effects of the strike and
should put a team in the field. At
least ono anti perhaps two ' teams
should be formed in the Boundary
country, and a Kootenay baseball
league, similar to that which formerly
existed, could bo formed. The regatta
of the Nelson bout club, wnich is to
ne held this summer, will put the
local oarsmen on tlieir mettle and the
getting into condition for the several
contests should be commenced at once.
The Nelson scullers should see to it
that tiie prizes are not carried off by
the visitois from Portland, Seattle.
Vancouver and Victoria.
Iu view of the formation of the
Tourist association it is important
that the several branches of outdoor
sports be brought to a higli standard.
The various clubs and sporting organizations should do all thut they can to
aid the Tourist association in carrying
out its objects They can and will
provo a tower of strength to the Tourist association as they can aid in
entertaining the strangeis while tbey
are within our gates. Every effort
should, therefore, be m <do tu encourage and foster the athletic organ
izations of tbu citv and district.
Besides the entertain i ent of both
the residents and visitors outdoor
pastimes and sports are oi the utmost
benelit to those wbo participate ir
them, as tbey develop the muscles,
improve the health :.nd strengthen
self relianco. Hie ancient Greeks,
who worshipped the body, anil wbo
havo left their mark in tbe history
and litoraturo of the worla, regarded
the training of the muscles and
tbe compititioriH in the publio
games as of paramount importance.
It was strength of body that gave
them strength of mind to produce the
opics of Homer, the orations of Derao-
Bt'.iencs, the Athenian orator, and
which enabled I'raxitilics to carve
tho   Canidiau   Venus   and   his   other
matchless sculpture.
TRADE OF TOURISTS,
Uritish Columbia seems to he
awakening to the fact that it is a
d- suable field for tourists to exploit.
Ass.jeiations are being formed at the
Coast and in Kootenay for the purpose
of cultivating the tourist trade, and if
our freak Legislature does not block
their efforts by putting a tux upon
tourists this province may yet become
u Mecca fir globe trotters, says the
New Denver Ledge. For scenery llritish Columbia is cot surpassed oc this
planet, and its climate, always mild,
is a Paradise during that part of tbe
year when a white collar "ills in   the
south a-.d east. The fishing and hunt
ing is par excellence, aud the scenic
beauties of river, lake, valley and
mountain are magnificent enough to
enthuse the dullest soul, or drive an
artist iuto a delirium of joy. It is
enly a matter of a few years until
all tiie intelligent woild will ring
with the praises of this wonderful
province wbich our legislators seem so
eager to give away to rail-vay fiends.
California is a notable example of
what can be done in the tourist line-
Los Angeles io built in a desert, yet
its population has in a decade increased from 50,000 to over 100,000 princi-
daly through the tourist trade, for a
very small city would answer the
natural reqniremnts of that section.
The city is 10 miles from the sea, and
its climate, aided by the liberal use of
printer's inks bas made it what it is
today. Huge hotels have been erected
all ovor Southern California to accommodate the vast trade. Iu Los Angeles
another hotel costing $3r>U,u00 has re-
centy been opened. Pasadena, a city
of 10,000, has two hotels capable of
holding nearly 1,000 ptople, aod providing for them iu a style that is hard
to beat in New York. At Coronado
beach, near San Diego, is tu be found-
tbe largest seaside hotel in the world,
while that little beauty spot, Santa
Barbara, with only 8,000 population is
building an hotel that will cost not
far from a million dollars. In dozens
of places can be found large hotels
tilled to the roofs wilh guests from all
over the uuiverse. The service at these
hotels is of the best, proving tbat the
men catering to tbe trade understand
their business. Good hotels are abso-
lutey necessary in order to acquire
and hold the custom of moneyed people. Except in the winter time
Southern California could not compete
with this province if we were
equally equipped with hotels aud the
world was aware of.it. One can be
obtained with money and printer's
ink will do the rest. Let us set our
light upon the mountain top and give
the cellar a long rest.
UNIVERSITY NEIiUED.
Those wbo are interested in higher
education will learn with pleasure
tbat Trinity University, of Toronto.
Ont., has offered an annual scholarship to residents of British Columbia.
The Scholarship will consist cf $100
in cash and tbree years' free tuiticn,
making its total value $250. Thc
work of the entrance examination for
which this scholarship is offered is
very similar to that required by the
educational depaitment of British
Columbia fur the intermediate exaini
uation. The scholarship is offered for
general proficiency or highest average
on examination, the only condition
being that tbe high .standing be roain-
taind throughout the course, and
that at least five students enter the
competitiou. The time, place and
conditions ol thu examination will be
made public at a later date. As llritish Columbia has nc university of its
own it is compelled to rely on those
of other provinces for the higher euu-
cation of her bright sons and
daughters.
Trinity University has a high standing and t'-Oie who pass through it are
well fitted for any career which they
may elect to follow, The generosity
of the university should he appreciated and it is hoped tbat many ul
the scholars of the province will take
udvantage of the offer so kindly made,
In the hurly burly of subduing the
wilderness and the conquest of the sea
of mountains the people oi tbe province have overlooked the important
questlou of establishing a provincial
university. Tbis is too important a
matter to be much longer delayed and
should receive the immediate attention
of the legislators. Some provision
should be made for the establishment
of a fund so that at tbe earliest possible moment the university tray be
established and maintained. It is
uot justice tu the rising provincial
generation, who will soon take the
place of the present generation, that
they should be less equipped with
higher knowledge tban their contemporaries of tiie other provinces of the
Dominion. If this is tho ease they
will he at considerable disadvantage
when pitted, as they ��ill be, against
those who are better infoimed than
they ure���uuless we provide them with
a university and at least givo them an
opportunity to get into the higher
branches of the great tree of
knowledge.

Ottmar Mcrgecthaler devoted tho
greater portion of bis life to tnein ven-
tion and perfection of the type setting
machine known as the linotype. It is
one of the marvels of an age of
mechanical wonders, and would bave
beeu sufficient to give fame and fortune to any single individual. Shortly
before Mr Merganthaler died, however, lie perfected a machine that is
capable of turning out strawberry
boxes at the rate of 1,200 an hour or
ia,00ij per day.   By moving levers and
rews the machine can be so changed
that it will make peach baskets.grape
baskets, or whatever style of baskets
the manufacturer may desire. It is
almost as wonderful a piece of
mechanism as the linotype. j

"GOFFE HEARTS"
More Frequent Than Tobacco Hearts
Coffee drinking frequently affects
the heart and many caseB of heart
trouble aro relieved or entirely cured
by leaving off coffee and taking on
Postum Food Ooffee.
A good illustration is tha!" of a lady
who says, "I was troubled, for many
yeais, with my heart and at times
would become unconscious. The
children have many timeB run for the
neighbors to come in and restore me
by putting my leet in hot water and
rubbing me.
Dr Short frequently told me that
coffee was a poison to rae and was
really the cause of my weak heart. I
could not do without the coffee
though, hut finally the doctor told me
it was certain death if I did not give
it up. This was about five years ago
and I changed from coffee to Postum
Food Coffee. My heart trouble gradually disappeared and now I am entirely well, have never used a particle of
coffee since my flrst oup of Postum.
I gave a little Postum to a lady
lrieud one day to take home and try.
She reported that she did not line it
at all. I found she boiled it only five
minutes, so I gave hei some more and
told her to boil it 20 minutes. That
was different. She has been using
Postum now a long time,
F It cured her daughter of liver
trouble,restored her fresh, pretty com-
ilexion   and   cured the  mother  from

\    MINING NEWS.    |
*.************************
T.L Lindsay,who has been working
the Alice aod Zuni on Spring creek,
was in town Tuesday on his wBy to
Spokane, says the Kuotenaian. He
reports everything looking well at the
property. The Alice and Zuni are
owned by the Silver Crown Mining
and Milling company, oi Spokane.
The property bas been worked steadily
for some time past, tbe woik being
confined to development of the claims,
but has been suspended till spring.
Mr. Lindsay left yesterday for Spokane to see the principals in his company and make arrangements for
carrying on extensive development
work in the spring. Tho propcity is
located on Spring creek, near tho
Carbonate No. 2, upon which a strike
of very rich ore was made recently.
Some of the ore going as high as 000
ozs aud 70 per cent, lead, but an average gives about 200 ozs. and 70 per
cent. Iu the Spring creek basin aie
several other properties wbich have
good showings of ore. Between tho
Alice aud Zuni and the Caronbate No.
2, are tbe Texas, which has been under
bond once and has had considerable
work done; the Fourth of July, the
Salem and San Antonio, which were
crown gianted recently and the Carbonate. Further up in the Jackson
basin, across a low ridge we fiud the
Sunset, Echo and Alameda, all of
which has been worked very extensively and have good showings. In
this basin is one of tbe oldest loeu-
tloans in the district, the U.S., owned
by Wm. Sndrow, who recently died in
Sandon. The Spring creea basin when
fully developed, will undoubtedly
prove to hava some of tbe viehest
mines in the country within its
limits.
Messrs. A. Campbell, W. Campbell
and V. L. Tway, locatjd a claim on
the railroad slope ten minutes walk
from town, says the Kootenaian.
They have been working ou it constantly ever since and have developed
a vein of silver lead oie from 14
inches to two feet in width,which has
widened at least one foot in going
down six feet. They bave received no
assay reurns as yet, but many people
who have examined the ore, thins it
will return excellent values. The
whole vein will average about fortv
per cent, metal with considerable
clean ore among it. Being within
fifty ieet of Kootenay lake and on tbe
right of way of the A. K. railway,
the cost ol shipping it will be small
in comparison to ore situated in the
hills. The vein is widening so fast
that they expect to encounter a large
ore body soon. The character of the
ore in comparison with other ores of
known values, would indicate that it
is not very low grade. So we confidently expect it to prove to be a valuable property in the near future.
Returns have been received on the
five tons of ore recently shipped by S.
Cooper and J. Aitchison from the Pay-
streak claim, on Twelve Mile creek:
The figuies were better than expected,
yielding $30 in gold and 85 ozs. silver
per ton. Tne lessees express their intention of returning to the property
and continjing development, as the
above returns give excellent wages
Slocan Drill.
The drift on the Combination olaim,
east of Slocan City, says the Drill, is
in 30 feet and has mineral sprinkled
across the breaBt. Some shipping ore
is coming iu. When the frost comes
out ol the ground, the owners will
ground Bluice tbe lead olose to the
oreek.
The Dutch boys who have been developing prospects at the head of
Davis creek have bonded two groups
to Spokane parties fcr JG5.000. The
groups lie on both sides of the divide
between Davis creek and Whitewater
sreek.
During the week M. Cameron's
pack train has been busy bringing
down ore from the Duplex to the railway at Lemon siding, says the Slocan
Drill. There will he between seven
and eight tous in the shipment.
The full face of the breast of the
drift on the Silversmith one of tbe
Slocan Star group, is in ore. A tram
is to be built between the Silveismith
and the star mill.
The shipments from Slocan City
during the present week were 100
tons, 80 from the Arlington and 20
from tbe Enterprise.
Chas. Dempster says he will return
to Slocan in April,to open up development on the Sapphire group, Twelve
Mile creek.

WHERE FRUIT ABOUNDS.
of
Food for
Athletes
Rebuilds Brain and
Muscle
A young athlete.commenting on tbe
need of well selected food to build up
a man after over-study, sajs: "Two
years ago I returned home from university with my health quite run
down from over-study and severe
athletic training. 1 needed a good rest
to put me right; but instead of taking
it, went to work in an olliee with
very confining duties.
My health grew no better; I felt
unfit for work and at night would lie
awake several hours before sleep
would come The appetite wns gone
entirely. One morning a new dish
appeared on the table. Grape-NliIs
witb cream. We all thought it an
excellent food, and 1 not only enjoyed
breakfast tbat day, but ninnet and
supper as well.
"This rather surprised me. Since that I have mado the food a regular
article of diet. I keep a box on hand at the otlice and often lunch on Drape-
Nuts and cream Instead of going home to dinner.
"Although it was ill the summer when I started tbe use of the food.it was
not long before I lrid gained If, pounds, and I know it is from tbo use of
this food that I can stand so well tho indoor work. My health is now perfect; sleep sound and enjoy ray meals but find 1 do not need to eat so much
volume of other   food while eating Grane-Nuts.
"A short time ago I thought the Grape-Nuts weru commencing to dsagree
with me, but found it was because 1 was eating moro than you recommend. I simply ate too much at aftime and more than the system required. When I returned to thu regular 'feed' of four heaping teaspoons, the
old zest for the food returned."

his mime be omitted, but the same can be furnished by application to the

Prosperity Among the Farmers
Kelowna Section.
F. C. McLaughlin, of Kelowna,is in
the city on a short visit, leaving tomorrow for home. He states that in
the Okanagan valley spring was well
advanced, the fruit trees be'ng in
blossom and farming operations well
under way. The tobacco plantation at
Kelowna covers 85 seres and is proving most sucessful. Mr. McLaughlin
is enthusiastic over the climate cf the
Okanagan, which he does not think
can be beaten. Ho stiues that the valley is now all taken up, and held at a
high figure. The principal crop is
fruit, of whioh many varieties are
raised. Several fruit drying establishments have been put in nnd this industry will soon assume considerable
proportions. The great drawback to
the county at present is the roundabout way the fruit has to travel to
reach the markets, having lo travel a
long distance north to the main line
before bejng sunt east or west He
said that tbe Okanagan fiuit found a
ready market on the coast as well as
throughout the Kootenays and with
the building of a railway through he
expects to see the country there go
ahead very rapidly. Business conditions thore are very different from
those in tbe mining districts, not
being subjeot to tho sudden rises or
depressions tbat mark the other parts
of tbe province. Peaches, pears,
grapes and other fruits are raised iu
great profusion, Thero is but little
snow in winter and very dry summers, which neessitates exteusive irrigation.
