Eleventh  Year
A STRONG
PLATFORM
An
Address to   the   Electors by Mayor Frank
Fletcher.
Favors Public  Utilities
the Sustaining of
Wages.
and
Mayor Frank Fletoher yesterday
prepared the following address to the
electors, and shows the strong stand
which he takes on some leading
issues.
To the Electors of tbe City of
Nelson,���After having served you for
the past year as Mayor of your city, I
again offer myself for the tame honor
for tbe current year, with the full
assurance that my candidature will
be favorably received, owing to the
large number of ratepayers wbo have
requested me to offer my servioe.
The unexpected condition of affairs,
that 1 found when I took office last
year, made it very necessary to pursue
an economical course, and at the same
time to continue the necessury im-
provements ln public works and carry
on the other departments of tbe city.
This policy, 1 will frankly say, must
bu continued during the present year,
or until such time as permanent prosperity seta ln. I feel confident that
the majority of the ratepayers are
satisfied with the manner In which
thiir affairs have been conducted during our term of office, and tho many
improvements carried out as (ar as
the revenue of the city permitted.
My belief in municipal ownership
of public utilities or franchises, has
never changed; and the course pursued
by the council and myself in making
u temporary arrangement to provide
tho public with the necessary electric light until the city is in a position tu increase its own plant, never
for one moment jeopardized tbe city's
lights, or conferred privileges on any
outside corporation.
I claim that tho arrangement made
in purchasing supplemental power for
eleotrio light purposes is a good one
und assists our Tramway in continuing its operations, and is a financial
benefit to the ratepayers, as tbo oity
makes a large profit on all power purchased and sold to consumers of electric light.
During my term of office 1 worked
hard to secure a refinery plant for tho
city, and although not successful,still
1 have not given up hopes ln tbis direction ; and   if elected I   pledge   my-
Drill, was in Nslson yes'orday among
other things, keeping in touch with
city life. Ho speaks in the moBt hopeful terms of the prospects of the mining Interests around that city for the
coming yenr. Speaking of the Arlington he said:
The parties circulating tho stories
that the Arlington had run out of ore
do not know wLat they arc talking
about. The Arlington mine is today
looking in iirtt-olass shape and has as
much ore in sight as at any time in
its history. It has two parrellel
chutes to draw upon, on Its east and
west veins, and there is no property
in the upper camp that is ia better
shape It hrs the makings of one of
the biggest paying propositions in
British Columbia. As you know there
have been many changes in the personnel of the staff of the Arlington
and it is attributable to this fact mote
than anything else that these founda-
tlonless reports have arisen. The
mine has had hard luck this fall in
not being able to market its ore, owing to thc bad roads. When the snow
did come the management lost no
time in hustling out the ore, 2(10 tons
being scut out last week and 210 tons
this week. Bad roads bave again
eomfl, as the result of tho heuvy thaw,
and shipments will again fall, an
average of 20 tons per day being perhaps the limit.
Owing to heavy expenditures for
outside improvements, new buildings
and other things there was an overdraft at thc bank ot several thousand
dollars last fall, whicb was known in
tho camp. Mr. Collom, the managing director, stated at the time that
payments for everything would be met
so soon as the ore could'be marketed.
Unfortunate circumstances haTe since
arisen, but these are but temporary
affairs and bave been satisfactorily
met. They cannot, or ought not to
be construed as in any way affecting
the condition and position of the
Arlington. It Is tbe banner property
of the Slocan City division and has
beon the chief instrument in bringing
that section into prominence it today
enjoys. Onco let tbe Arligton shut
dow and tbe camp would get a blow
it would take years to get over. There
has always been u superabundance of
knockers in thc country and no property escapes, but in thia ease they
havo overshot the mark. Judging
from appearance, there is no call for
the slightest alarm about tbe Arlington and its paper today id gilt-edged
seourity The company is not selling
any stock and tho men at tbe buck of
the mine are among the biggest financiers of tho Pacific coast.
The Arlington is employing olosn to
100 men and the latter are perfectly
satisfied with the condition of affairs.
So far as can be learned at headquarters, the mine will ship 20 tons a
day, with the expressed intention of
swelling the output later on. The
people in Slocan City division are
proud of the Arlington mine and of
its  managment, and all   well-wishers

The   Arlington   Looks   Better   Than
Ever And Ships Steadily.

. _
done in the past, whicb is a great
deal,
The Arlington last year shipped
Upwards of 5,000 tons of ore and is in
shape to double tbat output for the
present year. It will easily meet Its
slight indebtedness and will undoubtedly pay a heavy dividend for 11)02.
The .Slocan City division, In a mining sense, never looked bettor, because
of the numerous strikes made recently, and the best of all its bonanzas Is
the Arlington.
CALLS AN EXTRA SESSION.
Van Hunt to Press Action Against tho
Railway Merger.
8t. Paul, Jan. 10.���Governor Van
Sunt this afternoon announced that he
would call an extra session of the
loigslaturc for thu middle of FcbiU-
ary, probably abnut tne 18th. While
thofsession is eallei especially to consider the report of tho tax con mission
just made, it is considered likely that
the recent developments lu railway
affairs will erne in for consideration.
PASSES AGAIN IN VOGUE.
Chicago, Jan. 10.���So far as the territory of the Centra! passenger association is concerned,the anti-pass agreement has apparently been broken past
all mending for another 12 months at
least. Circulars wero received in
Chicago which wero Issued by the
Pennsylvania and Lake Shore railway
announcing that for the year 1002, exchange passes would be given and
inviting the Wine. Similar notices
are being issued by all tlio lines.
Berlin, Jan. 10.���Ibe impression is
gathering force among the supporters
of the tariff bill ln the Reiobstag, and
amounting almost to a certainty, that]
the bill cannot be passed in its present form, even If the midnight grain
duties be stricken out and 'that tbe
government fiiay have to drop the
measure altogether, although this of
course would only be done by long
sequestration of the bill with the
committee where it now rests. The
opposition to tbe tariff bill is taking
the form of a proposal that a commission shall be appointed to investigate
German argiculture and to determine
whether distress really exists.
During the debate on the esti mates
in the Reichstag, Herr Basserraann
declared today that tbe National
Liberal party would oppose any suggestion of a (ban of 3!>,000,000 marks
to cover the deficit. Financial reform
was necessary and tbe National
Liberals were not averse to direct im-
penal taxation. The chancellor, Count
Von. Bulow, making a general reply
to the preceeding speakers took occasion to pour oil on the recently
troubled British waters. He spoke
sharply against the abuse of Mr
Chamberlain, Indulged in by several
speakers since the Opening of the
debate as well as against ihe aspersions.oast on the honor of the British
army, to wliioh the chancellor paid a
warm tribute. ,
The richest man in Germany is Ueri
Krnpp. According to the Income tax
returns he has an income of between
twenty and thirty million marks a
year. No one approaches him in
wealth. Be stands in a class alone
and there are over a dozen classes
between Herr Erupp and the next
richest man in Germany. The identity of the seoond wealthiest man in
tbe empire, Who has a yearly income
of between five arid six million
marks, is not quite clear, although he
is supposed to be the coal master,
Herr Von Tbiels Winoklor.
Toronto, Jan. 10.���Prof. Robertson
today forwaraed to the government
details of Sir William McDonald's
scheme for improving education in
rnral districts. The communication
contained the interesting information
tbat the experiment is not to be restricted to Ontario alone but will be
tried at one place in each of the provinces. The intention is to consolidate
five Or six rural schools at convenient
points, changing them Into one
graded school witb a school garden
and a normal training room aB part
of.the equipment. Sir William will
defray the expenses. The Ides, in
brief, is to introduce toiHnical etfufca-
tion for farm life into rural schools.
Amohg the subjects will be dairying,
poultry keeping, fruitgrowirig, And 1
general gardening, arid for girls, pre
paration and serving of roods, dressmaking, simple forms ot household
art and decorations and care and
cleansing of rooms.
MARCONI WILL RETURN.
Montreal, Jan. 10.���Getf. Johnson

Signor Marconi, wlifj left for New
tork tonight en route for England,
made the interesting announcement at

today, that at the annual convention
of the society to be held at Quebec In
June next he would make a report of

Hostile Demonstrations Expected at
the Premier's Public Meeting.
Paris, Jan. 10.���M. Waldeek Rousseau, the premier, will deliver an important speech at St. Etlenne next
Sunday when he will define the
entire policy ot the government. As
this occasion will be the opening of
tbe ministerial electoral campaign,
several members of the French cabinet
will accompany the prime minister to
St. Etinne and about 100 senators and
deputies will be present there.
The walls of St. Etlenne are'eovCred
with posters. The Nationalists and
the non-ministerial socialists are calling upon tho population of tbe town
to refrain from sympathetic d< mnn-
strations on tho occasion of M, Waldeek Rousseau's speech. These manifestos may lead to hostile outories
although serious trouble 1b not liitcly.

several of the ministers, thanking
them for the caro they hid taken of

The report of the arrest of Gen.
Tung Hu sSian, whoso decapitation
has been ordcrod by thc dowager empress, is incorrect. Tlie Tartar general, who is govornor of Kan Su, was
airaid to execute the orders he received owing to Tung Fub Siang's

BOUNDARY SITUATION.
What tho Ores Yield  and the   Profits
Derived on Them.
Editor Minor,���In yonr issue of to~
day there is a slight error ln the interview you had with me���as you
quote me as saying tho Boundary ores
are easily mined because they are
soft. This is a slight deviation from
facts, as no one knows more about
this than those of us who have been
mining the same.
They are Hard but life cheaply
mined because of tbo large veins iu
which they occur. They aro not as
hard, however, as the Rossland ores.
The ore is dial copy rite and iron
pyrites in a silieious and lime gon-
gue, with considerable magnetite, occasionally. Generally they are self-
fluxing, although not so in every
case.
The average smelter value previous
to the late drop In oopper is, broadly
speaking frorhfs to $6 per ton. Taking
Sri.r>0 a's.bolng dn avcragn value,rtndde-
ducting the mining and smelting costs
���provided thiamines own tbe smelters
��� loft 12.110 profit. Tbo drop ih Copper, however, reduces this 11.20 leaving (1.30 as the average profit ait
present rates.
This $1.20 is aouounted for as follows: Supposing the ores average 2
per cent, copper, tbls leaves 1.8 per
oent. not, after allowing for the losis
in mining duo to either the hanging
or foot wall breaking down and reducing tlio values, and for the loss in
the slag, This net amount Is equal
to 30 pounds of copper and that at 4c
makes $1,20 per ton as the loss due
to the late street specillat ions.
It is useless to deny that tho drop
has seriously affected the prospects of
several pending mining deals but lt ia
also Inconceivable to suppose that
copper will have no advance just ahr
soon as the bulls and  the beam have
quit monkeying with tbe price. It is
also useless to expect companies to
pay the proper dividends on the stock
issued, especially when they have i
been hugely watered. I contend, however, that legitimate mining can be
carried on with a profit even at the
present prices whan the company
.owns its own mines und smelters,
{and expects interest only on tbe
amount expended.
We will take an instance of a mine
operating in the manner indicated and
having a self-fluxing ore nnd an output of 700 tons per day. The expenditure to get into this condition including cost of the mine, equipment and
development, and cost of the smelter
will be around $700,000. Taking only
$1 per ton as the profit and multiplying into tbe yearly tonnage we get
$210,000 profit per annum. This will
provide 20 per cent, intereat on n capi-
taliation on one million dollars. It
will, however, not take this sum to
put snch a mine into the conditions
named, but evon if it does, there is a
profit of 20 percent, per annum with
only |1 per ton profit.
Other factors enter also, Into the
question,such as the life of the mines,
add if 10 years ore in sight oan be
shown for a mine of this character it
will be seen that tbe whole of the
money wili be reimbursed the capitalist before tbe exhaustion of the
ore reserves, and be will have bad u
handsome profit besides.
No one oan realize more, however,
than* those who live inthe Boundary
what a drop of 4c per lb. means. It
hits various ways. Mines that are
developed are shut down because tbe
mine owners realize copper will advance and they may as well, keep the
ore in the mine until it does. Impending deals are stopped because the
seller will naturally not sell his
mines based on the present value of
copper. Buyers on the other hand also j
as naturally figure the value of tbe
mines on the present price and will
not give more. Intending purchasers
of prospects hold buck because they
prefer to mine some other metal more
constant in price than copner. In |
these ways tbe drop has east a gloom,
let ns hope only temporarily, over
the Boundary country.
1 am indebted to Mr. Pnnl Johnson,
manager of the B. C. Copper company's smelter, Greenwood, and Mr.
B B. Hedley, manager of tbe Hull
Minos smelter, for the information
regarding the smelting of tho or ����� and
their cost.

Turnlfrom this idyl-like pioture to
some which have been drawn in tbe
Tribuno since. Jnst as soon as it was
found that Mayor Fletcher had a
mind and ideas of his own aB to conducting tbe affairs of the oity the
vials of the wrath ot the Tribnne
were opened upon bim. It was not in
one but in a number of Instance that
an effoit was made to force the one-
man policy on the mayor and the
aldermen above mentioned. Now the
Tribune has another set ot candidates
whioh it is supporting. If it were
possible to elect them, which now
seems impossible, how long would it
be before the Tribune would again
open the vials of wrath 00 tbeir
devoted headB? This would be done
the moment they took any action
without consulting him. Down with

INCREASE IN TAXES.
It is surprising ��t times to note the
vast quantity of misinformation whicb
some people will seoure in the course
of a brief life time, and it is evident
that they must .work over time in
order to secure it. Captain D. C. Mc
Morris "independent candidate
writes to tho Tribune a letter which if
intended for the purpose of showing
how poorly he is informed on municipal affairs he could not have demonstrated the fact more certainly or
olearly if he had cried it out at the
housetops. If his letter to the paper
Mr. McMorris says: "For the year
1001 the taxes were Increased some 80
to 35 per cent, over the previous year
and no reason has as yet been given
for the increase. Dues lt not seem
reasoable, then, that the ratepayers
should be taken into the confidence of
the retiring, and at the same time
aspiring, council, and be given a clear
statement of how the funds were used
and the necessity uf so great an increase in tbeir taxation in one year?"
If Captain McMorris had followed
thc proceedings of the council at all
he would have known that it only
levies sufficient taxes on lands and
improvements to provide for the in
terest and the sinking fund of thc
bonded Indebtedness. This indebted
nesB was all incurred by councils
previous to the ono elected for 1901.
Tho revenue from thc water rates,
electric lights and from other sources
is used to run the city. It is, therefore, obvious that the contention of
Captain McMorris, by inference at
least, that the present city government
is responsible for the increase in taxes
on lands and improvements is entirely
erroneous, which fact he could have
learned by a lilttlo inquiry instead of
rushing into print iu tho hope of injuring those wbo are Dpposed to him
for public oflice. Tho publishers of
tho Tribune should never- have
allowed the communication of Cap-
tails McMorris to appear as they
paper must have known that the
council of 11)01 is not responsible in
any wise for the increase in the taxes
on lands and improvements.
It takes time tu close the books ol
thc city for the year and to bring

DOWN TUB ONE MAN, POWER.
Tho Tribune of Jamiar 15th, 1901,
after Mayor Fletcher and his supporting aldermen were elected, had the
following laudatory editorial: "A
year ago the men who elected John
Houston mayor burned brooms and
���jollified because of the victory they
had won in a civic election, John
Houston's opponent then was Frank
Fletcher. Yesterday John Houston
and his supporters made Frank
Fletoher mayor of Nelson without an
election and pledged him their hearty
support during his incumbency in
ofllco. They not only made Mr.
Fletchor mayor, but they elected six
nldermcn with whom he can work.
This is politics, but at the same time
Is what must be done if tbe people arc
to have' their affairs successfully
managed.   Nelson should make a good
WEST WARD.
A straight Houston ticket in this
ward would meet with certain defeat
at the polls. Our local Tammany
club has attempted to solve the cSiffi
culty in this way :J
Two candidates only (McMorris and
Scanlan.are to lun as "independents"
which means that they are to pose as
being uncontrolled by Kirkpatrick
(Houston) or Fletoher, and being un
able to canvass on this platform, tbey
oan with safety approach voters who
are in sympathy with Mr. Fletcher's
candidature and opposed to Mr. Houston's one-man rule. We oan expect
some suoh proposition as thia from
cither of these independents or one
of their supporters:
"I know that you are in favor of
Mr. Fletcher's election, but I am an
independent. You have three votes
for aldermen. Why not give me
one?" eto.
We warn the electors friendly to
Mr. Fletcher and bis cause against
being thus deceived, Every time you
vote foi an alderman who is brought
out and supported by the Tribune,
you are assisting in defeating your
own friends and aiding in the furtherance of Mr. Houston's malign and
destructive influence in our city To
be forewarned is to be forearmed.
EAST WARD.
Mr. Houston has faint hopes of
electing his candidates ln thia ward
and so has bruught out a full ticket,
and the instructions have gone forth
that the Houstouites are to vote a
straight ticket.
It is intended then, by active can
vass, to win away a vote here and
there from the opposing candidates.
It behooves the supporters of
Messrs. 'Jillett, Paterson and Wilson
to be on the alert, and to see that this
scheme is thwarted. There should be
no wavering, bat all should stand
together in the cause ot good muni
cinal government.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Tribune has started to grade its
candidates   by using   diminutive   ap
pellations such   as   "Cap,"   "Tom,'
"Dick," "Chris," and "Johnnie."
The Tribune has been in partnership with the city of Nelson the past
few years and it is evident that it
would very much regret to lose a oon
nection that has been profitable to it,
but then in this vale ot tears the near
est and dearest must part. The
Tribune, too, has been a very "dear
connection of the city.
On Wednesday morning last The
Miner put several queries to J, A
Kirkpatrick,and up to a late hour last
night they had not been answered
either in the Tribune or elsewhere
The queries wore as follows: Is it
not a fact that be and Mr. Wilson
have owned lot 7,block 4,for a considerable time? Did nut the fact tbat he
was a partial owner in the lot give
him the right to vote in the east
ward? Has he ever voted in the east
w 11 nl by virtue of tho interest which
lie owned in thiB lot? If bo, how can
ho reconcile hiB action of yesterday
with that of voting under what might
he uncharitably termed false pretenses. Did not Mr. Kirkpatrick toll
his friends within the last day or two
that he and Mr. Wilson owned the
lot?
Acting on what is believed to be a
hint from tbe lieutenant-governor tbe
provincial leigslature has been called
to meet on February 20th. It is evident that some pressure was bruught
to bear as the government'! intention
wus not to have called the houso together until much later in the year.
Dunsmuir agents have been busy
among the members for several
months past in an effort to stave off a
dissolution which waa impending just
as soon as the bouse convened, but it
is doubtful if they accomplished much
in this direction. The interests of the
province demands the dissolution ol
the government at the earliest practi-

been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for th<* past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your

My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared

Nklson   Daily Miner, Saturday January ii, 1902
to ask why is the   great
Chinese labor completely
WnlTE VS. CHINESE LAHOR.   ;
An Object Lesson For Those Who Use
Tbem to Saw Wood.
Editor Miner,���Amidst the turbulence of municipal politics one pauses
long enough
question of
lost sight of? Is it that we are so
deeply engrossed in tbe all-absorbing
topic of "utilities," and the answer
is contemplated with some degree of
trepidation, is it possiblo tbat our
white workman, the embodiment of
dignified labor, has suddenly become
a convert to the doctrine of tht
"brotherhood of man"? Dealing with
the subject from a purely economical
basis the clsim in ventured and it is
believed thc position is unassailable
and its contention indisputable, that
while labor is in the long run more
advantageous to the purchaser than
that supplied by Chinese. One is led
to this conclusion by ajtual observation. Passing along Hall street yesterday attention was directed to a
Chinaman sawing wood at the home
of Mr. John Houston. Without going
into statistics, and in a rough way it
might be said that it would take thc
Chinaman ten hours to saw ono cord
of wood. At twenty cents an hour,
;���r all know Mr. Houston is the
champion of high wages, it would
cost at leastj|2 to reduce that cord of
wood to its proper length. Now, assume that tbe same work as dono by
a white man at 10 cents an hour. It
is quite clear that a white man would
accomplish quite as much in 8 hours,
the recognized eight union day, and
thus it will be apparent that the work
could he done by white labor for 81.60
���or a clear gain of 40 cents���a trifle
no doubt, but still enough to substantiate the contention here made.
Innumerable other instances In support of this position could be given,
hut it is believed tbe foregoing
should convince any reasoning man
thnt white labor from au economical
point of view is by f��r the cheapest
iu the end.

Thracklaying    on    the   Lnrdo
Reaches Poplar Creek.
H.F. Forrest, Dominicn inspector of
railways, and J. J. Sullivan, engineer
id charge of the construction of U. P.
R. lines, returned yeslerday from the
Lnrdo where Mr. Forrest was inspecting that part of the road on
which the rails have been laid. Mr.
Sullivan states that the track is now
laid as far as Poplar creek, 23 miles
from the lake. Tbe track-laying gang
has been taken off nnd from this time
on will be employed in doing nprap-
ping on the part already finished.
This inspection is not final and trains
will not run regularly for some time
as there is little ore to come down
yet, most of it being held over till
the spring. Clearing the rjght of way
and grading will te continued all
winter. This is about two and a half
feet of snow.
Mr. Sullivan states that the spur to
the Marysville smelter Bite is corr-
plcted. That work has been in
charge of J. P, Vanoe, who was formes ly in the olllee of Mr. UuteMus, in
Nelson. Another work the C. P. R.
has now in hand is the building of a
cutoff at Field, on the main line.
Thu cutoff ib in the nature of a betterment for though it does not shorten
the route it will lessen the grade very
much ut a point where it was rather
bad.

BUILT A MONUMENT
The Beat in the World
"A monument built by and lrom
Postum," is the way Mr. J. O. 3asev
of Ayres, 111. describes himself. He
says, "For years I was a coffee drinker until at last I became a terrible
sufferer from dyspepsia, constipation,
headaches and indigestion, and was _
physical wreck.
The different kinds of medicines I
tried did not cure me, but finally
some one told me I must leave off
coffee and take up Postum Food
Coffee. I was fortunate in having the
new coffee made strictly according to
directions, so that, from the start, I
liked it. It has a rich flavor and I
made the change from coffee to Postum without any trouble.
Gradually my condition changed.
The old troubles disappeared and I
began to get well again. My appetite
became good and I could digest food.
Now I have been restored to strength
and health. Can sleep sound all night
and awake with a fresh and reBted
body. Everyone who meets me comments on my getting so fat and rosy.
I am really a monument built by Postum, for I was a physical wreok, distressed in body and mind, and am
now a strong healthy man. I know
exactly what made the change, it was
leaving off coffee and using Postum.''

One of the noteworthy features of
the present municipal campaign Is
the large number of gentlemen who in
other campaigns worked with John
Houston and now are working against
him, as it is recognised everywhere
that the fight U really agaist Houston
and what he represents.
A telegram from Victoria received
yesterday annnounced that the appeal
of the Byron N. White company
against tho order of the chief JOstiee
made in Rossland, granting permission to tho Star Mining company to
examine the workings of the Sioean
Star mine, in litigation pending, had
been refused with costs. The order
therefore stands as originally made.
While a switchman Was climbing
down the ladder at tbe sioe of a car
yesterday morning, his hand slipped
from the frosty bars and he fell. As
it happened tbe car at tbe time was
out near the end of the O.P.R. wharf
and falling outwards he fell into the
lake. As tbe water there is only three
feet deep he sorambled out none the
worse for the fall except a thorough
ducking in icy water.
W. Munro, the seven-year-old son
of W. Murro of thc C.P.R., fell from
the seat of a delivery wagon in whieh
be was riding yesterday, and bad his
right thigh bone fractnred. The
wagon was on Josephine strret near
Silica when the accir'ent occurred aud
the injured boy was taken to his home
at the corner of Josephine and Carbonate streets, where the fracture was
reduced.
One of thc Iloustonian faction yesterday remarked that he Was afraid
that their candidate for mayor would
be defeated. Of the aldermen he
thought that three of their ticket
wonld win and of the other two he
was hopeful. As the gentleman in
question was confident a couple of
days ago that^they would be able to
carry the whole ticket it shows that
as a result of his work in canvassing
be does not feel as cheerful over the
prospects as before he started to study
the situation.
HERPICIDE
TO HAVE
THIGH,
LUXURIANT
HAIR
is the most longed-for desire of every woman.
She knows what a powerful aid to beauty it iB,
and endeavors to make
her own as soft, glossy
and thick as possible.
Comparatively lew of
them are aware as yet
that Newbro's Herpicidc,
a recent scientific discovery, will enable them
to possess hair as thick
and luxuriant as anyone
could desire.
It works on a new the-
ory  of destroying the
f:erm that feeds upon the
mir root, and thus making dandruff and fulling
hair impossible. It then
proceeds to produce a
growth of thick, glossy '
hair that soon becomes
the pride of its owner.
One trial will convince j
you of its virtues.

being especially goon.
The march of tho Purity Brigade Dy
Mesdames Davys, Armstrong, Goepel,

great hit.
As a finale a portion of the opera of
the Bohemian Girl was given, the
parts being taken by Mis. Melville
Parry and Messrs. Day and Thompson. This was the best of the programme, Mrs. Parry's rendering of
the old favorite "I Dreamt I Dwelt in
Marble Halls," was most smypathetic,
her sweet^and clear voice bringing
ont tbe many strong effects in this
well known song.
The performance will be repeated
this evening, when another full house
will probably be in attendance.
HILL BROOK FARM
The Owner Comments on Grape-Nuts
A farmer with his out of door work
might have reason to expect more than
the average of good health if he could
use proper tooi and have it well
cooked, but many of them, in middle
age, suffer torments from dyspepsia
and following that a weakened nerv-
cinii system.
To show the value of a change ln
food we quote from a letter written
by L. Flagler, owner of Hill Brook
Farm, Charlottesville, Va.
"I havo speut a very considerable
amount o( money in trying to cure my
stomach trouble with medicines, and
bave changed climate several times.
About two years ago I wns taken
worse. My heart and kidneys gave me
much trouble. I could not sleep
nights. Was very nervous, thin and
discouraged. Finally 1 changed my
lood and began taking Grape-Nuts
Breakfast Fond. This agreed with me
and 1 thought I could see my way
out, so 1 have stuck to Oiape-Nuts
for a year and a half nnd gradually
tbe old troubles have disappeared.
I have made splendid progress in
health and strength, sleep well and
can now do a good day's work for a
man of filty years.
I know that Grape-Nuts caused the
change, and alhough I am now able
to use other foods as I like, still I
stick to Grape-Nuts because I know
how it nourished me, and besides
wife nnd I both like the food.
She says nothing has helped her
nerovus system like Grape-Nuts. Wc
buy thc f.wd by the na.se and are very
enthusiastic in regard to it."
It is plain that nervous, wom out
people oan he biought back to health
by using Grape-Nuts.

FINE VAUDEVILLLE SHOW.
A Monstrous   Programme   That  Was
Finely Rendered.
At the opera house last evening a
large audience witnessed tbe presentation of a vaudeville show by Nelson
amateurs. Like all the performances
that have been andeitaken by the
members of the operatic society
affair was a success aod reflects great
credit on Herr Steiner and Mr, Party,
who were instrumental in getting the
performance up, and also on all who
took part.
After the overture by the cchestia
tbe first number on the programme
was the famous Toreador songfrom tbe
opera of Carmen, which was most
acceptably sung by R. Thompson.
The next number was one that evoked rounds of applause and cheers till
the youthful performers consented to
give several encores. This Was a
song and dance from the Belle of New
York, by Flossie Johnstone and Harold Cameron. The ehildren have
pleasing voices and entered into the
spirit of tho dance heaitly, ad gave a
most dainty and charming exhibition.
The sextette, Tell Me Pretty
Maidens, from Florodora, by Mesdames Macdonfild, McLeod, and
Parry, and Messrs. Parry, Crrckmay.
and Sherwood, was a bright and
catchy selection, and encores were
vigorously demanded.
