in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the

neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To

Sloean is to have opposition iu her
efforts to fittingly observe Labor Day.
Sandon has appeared on tbe scene
since the local celebration was announced and Its people have become
as busy as bees in their efforts to skim
the create off the situation. Last
Saturday nighl they held a meeting
nnd claimed thoy had raised $1608 for
"ports. At the same time Messrs.
Oavflnaugh and TwogOOd were appointed n committee to proceed to
slocau, to try aad get tho celebration
there culled off,
On Monday the committee arrived
here, backed up by 11 telegram Unit
tin* Saiitliui Miners Union would celebrate al Inun.'. The executive committee here aud maiiy of the citizens
were interviewed, with a view to uniting forces with Sandon, but without
success. Tuesday evening the matter
was brought up at a public meeting
here, and the citizens decided to proceed with their show, arrangements
having progressed bo far that it was
impossible lo withdraw. It is unfortunate the two towns are bent o >
ebrating, as each will tend to mar me
otlier. Co'..' : .. '■■iii a'-o result,but
eueh place seams in be in the field to
stay. Sandon claims to have more
money than Slocan, but they do not
•possess us good grounds or facilities,
and tin- bulk of the outside crowds

The new turn in events has put the

Slocan was first in the field with
her announcement of celebrating, nnd
her citizens feel sorry to think Sandon
folk cannot see their way clear to jOin

here even n greater success than il
promises to be.

VV. T. Shatford  & Co.  Will Clone Their
Slocan Ilranch.
Under date of July 20th, W. T.
Shatford & Co. make the following
announcement to their customers and
friends: —
It is with regret that we announce
our intention to close up the Slocan
brunch of our business. Coming into
this section with many—who still remain during the tirst days of the
"boom," we established relations
whieh, we flatter ourselves, are deeper
than mere business relations—relations which have caused us to stay
with the camp during manv bad business yenrs, through our reluctance to
break this tie of friendly feeling.
We have, as have always had, the
greatest faith in the future prosperity
of the camp, a faith w.hich is based 011
our mineral wealth -a wealth unsurpassed by any other section of British
Columbia, and which will some day
be developed and place Slocan where
she rightfully belongs: at the front of
all mining towns. Capital, however,
is corning in so s'owly that our population is decreasing rather than increasing. The business element must
adapt itself to changedconditions,and
it would 1x3 folly for us to remain and
conduct business at a great loss.
Although we propose closing our
business, our mining interests and
other property interests will lx* retained, so thnt we shall be as much interested in the growth aud development
of Slocan as heretofore. It is our intention to close up our business as
speedily as possible. All transactions,
therefore, in the future will be for
cash only. Wo must ask our customers to close their accounts before
August 15th,eitherby cash or by note.
endorsed by some reliable person acceptable to our bankers. Our customers will please accept this intimation
so there will be uo delay after the loth
•r August. Our stock is to be disposed of for cash.
We trust that our friends will continue trading with lis for cash as long
as we remain in Slocan. We will make
it an object, particularly in dry goods,
.uen's furnishings, boots and shoes.
etc. We want to clean everything Up,
tor we do not want to move anything,
rhe exact date of our closing will depend upon the way our stock moves.
We sincerely thank our many customers and friends for the wuy in
which they have stood by us. We
shall not forget.ami il is possible that
in more prosperous times our business
relations may be renewed.

it once more to tlie position of head
shipper in the division. The remaining 20 tons came from the Enterprise.
In sight for next week are shipments
from tho Enterprise and Neepawa, ou
Ten Mile; the Colorado, on Twelve

Creating Much intercut.
The decision by the department of
mines that the majority interests in a
claini may crown grant, without waiting for balance of claim, is creating
much discussion here, where the point
arose. The Creole is the claim involved, but the majority interests have
not yet secured their certilicate of improvements, the authorities evidently
seeing the issue is an awkward one.
If allowed to prevail the ruling would
be fraught with disastrous results.

Next Monday will occur the city's
lirst tax sale and an elegant opportunity will be afforded for people to obtain property cheaply. Two-thirds of
the townsite lias lieen advertised,niuch

Lemon creek lias a chance for a stir
this fall, its gold values being the attraction. Several outsiders have been
up the creek and half a dozen deals

While the
Colonel Slept
By Sidney H. Cole
...Copyright, 1803, by T. C. McClure...
Dr. Theodore Miller was nervous.
Ills nervousness had manifested itself
some time before the heavy stone posts
of the carriage gateway appeared tc
view, and all the way along the dusty
road lt had materially Increased. Now,
at he stood at last before the entrance
to tbe Poplars, lt had grown to such;
proportions that he paused ln mentnl
Irresolution, which bade fair to de
velop into precipitate flight.
Indeed, so much had his courage ebb
ed thnt for several wavering seconds
he stood there looking despairingly a*
the trim driveway before hlui nnd
casting wistful glances at the dusty
road be had Just traveled. It was not
until he had called himself numerous
kinds of a moral coward and a procrastinating idiot, modified by vii negated adjectives, that he started re
luctantly up the driveway.
"See here, my boys," Ue observed, Involuntarily squaring his shoulders and
quickening his steps. "This will never
do in the world. You cnn't put lt olT
any longer, for the.v leave tomorrow.
80 be a little man.   Go up and get your
coup de grace and go home and con
sole yourself with 'I told you so.'
Gadl" he added, with an absurd
chuckle. "I believe I shall bolt before
I reach tbe house in spite of myself."
However, with all his qualms and
tremors, Miller marched sturdily up the
drive. Soon the path turned sharply,
and he stood before the colonial house.
On tbe front porch Miller beheld the
bead of the bouse, Colonel John Grew
Worth, TJ. S. A., retir*3d, stretched comfortably In a Mteauicr chair. No one
else was in sight. A closer inspection
disclosed the fact that Colonel John
Grew Worth, TJ. S. A., retired, slept.
The disclosure wns brought ubout by
the ears rather thau by the eyes, for
Colonel Worth had dropped his lower
Jaw and was sending heavenward 11 series of grunts und gurgles and snorts
wblcb would have done credit to the
most enthusiastic sawmill.
Miller mounted tbe steps nnd, drawing a cbalr closo beside the sleeping
man, sat down. He took no precautions as to noise in these movements,
for Colonel Worth, besides being a
sound sleeper, was so deaf that nothing short of a charge of dynamite
would arouse him. The doctor lighted
a cigar and looked thoughtfully across
the well kept Inwn and the trim
shrubs and hedges. lie was thinking
bow glad he w.is of this moment to
collect himself before he saw ber.
"Probably make nn ass of myself nt
the best," was his optimistic forecast.
"Hee —gur-r-r-r! Hee —gur-r-r-r!"
the colonel snored placidly.
Miller looked at tbe portly, liald-
beaded figure ln the steamer chair. A
humorous twinkle came Into his eyes,
and a quiet smile curved the corners
of his mouth.
"Hoe—gurr-r-r—ah-h!" tbe colonel
"It is, indeed," snid the doctor in
tones of grave acquiescence. "I don't
remember when w^'ve hnd such por-
f.ect weather In September ns this Is.
Beautiful air too. Have you noticed
bow clearly the hills stand out today?
Generally, you know, they nre nothing
but a hazy blue line ou the horizon.
Cast your eye, if you will, on ltaw-
aon's pond over by the woods there.
Did you ever see anything finer? The
way it shimmers und glinls in—why,
how rude of you to Interrupt!" he
broke off suddenly us a spusm of unusual violence shook the sleeping
mnu. The doctor waited patiently for
tbls to subside, leaning forward with
an air of Interested attention.
"Oh, yes," he said nt length; "I
know the nnny ls going to the dogs,
but I wouldn't bo ho vehement about
It If I were you. It won't do a bit of
The colonel seemed trying to shako
down tho porch.
"Really 1 must protest," snld Miller. "You see, I didn't como hero to
talk about the army with you this
afternoon. The fnct Is, I want to
apeak to you about-about" —be
paused and glnnced furtively around—
"Molly," he said, amused nt his own
temerity in thus alluding to the Imperious Miss Worth.
"Wh-r-poo-o!" the colonel gurgled.
"Yes; 1 thought you'd be surprised,"
Miller went on. "No; I shnll not ask
yon for her hand at present—nny way
not until I hnve asked the lady herself, which I intend to do some time
this afternoon. In all probability, if
I follow out this intention, I shnn't
have to trouble you," he udded gloomily*
"Gurr-r — gurr-r — gurr-r!" came
hoarsely from the colonel.
"Thanks for those cheering words,"
said Miller. "I wish I felt ns sure
nbout it. I think she knows I intend
to propose some time. I've been on
the point ot doing so n number of
tlm?s before, but something nlways
hindered nt the critical time. Once lt
was a cow, again It was a bee, and another time her shoe became untied."
If the colonel's throaty efforts hnd
been a trifle less vloleut at that moment Miller might have caught the
sound of a subdued titter behind tbe
closed blinds of tbe library, and a moment later he might have heard the
door behind him opened softly nnd the
tread of light footsteps ou the porch.
These were lost to hlm, however, as
he bent over the slumberer with a
whimsical expression on bis face.
"You've nlways seemed rather kindly disposed toward me," Miller said,
still addressing the somnolent warrior,
"and so I'm about to take the liberty
of asking you a few questions. I wish
you'd nnswer them without prejudice
as man to man. We'll construe your
answer thusly: That 'hee—gurr-r* (pardon the pronunciation, but those dell-
cute accents ure rather elusive) we'll
call an affirmative and that 'whir—
poo,' which you Interpolate once iu
awhile, we'll call n negative. Dear,
dear! How annoying to have you answer so indiscriminately before I've
nsked tbe questions!
"Now, if you were In my shoes
wouldn't you think Molly bad given
you—cr—encouragement? Ah, 1 thought
you'd agree with me. lint, really, your
nnswer loses force when you repeat lt
so Incessantly.
"No. 2: Knowing this young lady ns
you do, do you honestly think I'm the
sort of man to make her happy?"
"Hee—gurr-r-r!" It was u perfect
Imitation of the affirmative snore, but
it did not come from the colonel.
Miller turned nnd found Molly
Worth standing behind him. He enme
out of bis chnlr In nu uwkwurd bound.
He tried to say something, but lie
stammered so helplessly that he gave
lt up nnd stood staring nt her until
her face flushed crimson and her eyes
"That was the one that mennt 'yes,'
wnsu't ItV" she faltered; then suddenly
she found herself in the arms of a
young physician, whose power of
speech had been restored to bim.
Some moments later they remembered the colonel. Miller strode over
to the steamer chair and bent over
"Do I have your consent, sir?" be Inquired, with ridiculous deference.
"Hee—gurr-r-r—ah-h!" wus the benediction of the colonel.
Symptom* of Decay.
"I am afraid you are not so strong
as you used to be, John," said a foud
wife to her husband. "I tblnk It ls
about time you were getting some Insurance on your life."
"Insurance on my life! Wbat are
you talking nbout? I am ns healthy
as ever I wns.   Insurance, Indeed!"
"Well, dear, I only mentioned it, you
know, out of respect to yourself. I
thought you were falling."
"And whnt ln tbe world put It into
your head tbat I am falling? Me falling? Why, I am as strong as a borse
and can run up three flights of stairs
without taking a breath."
"Well, that mny be so, but I am
afraid you are deceiving yourself."
"Deceiving myself! Goodness gracious, woman, what do you mean?"
"Don't bo so impatient. Wbat makes
me think you nre falling Is tbls: When
you were courting ine you could hold
me on your knee for threo hours. Now
you cannot hold tbe baby on your hip
three minutes."'

■ome Happy  Notions About  Various
I'olnts of the  Home Wedding.
For n home wedding, especially If
the bride wears a white gown, a green
und white color scheme ls charming
und not difficult to arrange. However,
some brunettes, to whom white Is not
becoming and who wish to look their
best on their wedding dny, hnve chosen
a pink setting for their bridal, snys the
Boston Cooking School Magazine ln a
short chat ou wedding matters.
For an early June wedding, In localities where it Is abundant, the wild
pink azalea makes n most effective
decoration. Garden roses nre seldom
available until the very hist of the
month, but when they nre plentiful
nothing liner can be desired. A bride
may now wear or carry nny favorite
flower, the old time prestige of the
orange blossom having ln some measure departed.
It was a happy thought which gave
mothers a place in tlie bridal procession.' Fathers, sisters and brothers all
bad their duties In connection with the
event, but oft times tbe mother wns
left alone during the ceremony. Now
one or both mothers form a graceful
and dignified part of tbe procession.
A pretty idea for a borne wedding ls
to bave the young guests surround the
couple during the ceremony. This
eaves choosing bridesmaids, which is
sometimes a difficult thing to do when
one has many friends nnd relatives.
Every prtspectlve bride loves to
show her trousseau to a few close
friends. Thii ls sometimes made the
occasion of 11 smnll tea or gathering
and gives nu opportunity for bestowing any small and dainty gift. This is
a much better wny than the once popular shower, ivMch Is now thought not
quite good foi 11.
The refreshments for a home wed
ding may be passed or they may be
served at sn.all tables scattered
through tlie bouse, and this ls by far
the most comfortable way. If convenient, tables with twenty-four Inch tops
mny be hired for the occasion. These
may be covered with large napkins of
dinner size if the hostess has not a sufficient number of embroidered or
drawn work cloths.
For thc wedding reception In summer nothing more Is required than Ice
cool drinks, small enkes und sandwiches. Of course If one chooses a salad
may be added, accompanied with thin
cut bread and butter or wafers. Careful attention to all the smnll details
Will mark the perfection of the entertainment and add much to the comfort
of the guests.
A Hat for Yootbful Charms.
The rustic straw lint illustrated calls
for youthful freshness and charms In

How   tbo   Sun   Burns   tbo   Skin.
The sun does actually burn the skin,
nnd there Is no difference between Ita
bums nud one produced from any other kind of Intense heat. The, oils und
necessary moisture In the skin are
evaporated by the sun. The sun bums
the cuticle of the skin when exposed
to'its rays. The skin gets parched
and is rendered apparently lifeless,
uud then It peels or dies away.

I am the owner of a pony and a smnll
black pig, which, nfter tke manner of
the country, runs loose nnd finds its
own food. The pony Is kept stabled at
night, but for part of the day is out
grazing and is fed with corn every
morning near the dining room window.
The corn is put iu n box which rests on
the ground. When the pony comes he
'. nlwnys accompanied by the pig, who
sits between his fore feet and occasionally takes a little corn himself. If
he takes too much the pony gives hlm
a gcntlo bite, ns a reminder not to be
greedy. The pig skeps against the
stable door (it Is not allowed to go inside), so as to bo nenr Its friend, and
when the pony i.s grazing the pig ls always Just alongside. When I go out
for a drive or n ride and the pony has
to wait, friend pig lies down between
ids feet until we start. On returning
from the drive the pig Jumps about,
making the most absurd antics to greet
Ids friend, and grunts a queer, sharp
grunt, looking for all tlio world like a
fat and clumsy old Spaniel greeting its
master. It then trots off to the stable
with Its friend. No otlier pig dare go
near the pony, as he has u great dislike
for nnimals ns a whole nnd bites them
savagely.—London News.

it is always worthy of mention.

Of all forms of temper there ls none

injured attitude ls assumed, a martyr's halo cnrefully pinned on, nnd
happy, everyday lifo becomes an impossibility. People who want to be
loved or even liked should never bo
difficult. Society hns not time, even if

Uls Strength and All  Hound  Ability
Natl tbe Household Smoothly.
In these days of dissatisfaction with
women servants housewives shonld
meet the problem. Tbere ls a time to
stop this condition of affairs, nnd the
time is nt hand, it ls nn evident fuct
that servants must be forthcoming nud
not only servants, but satisfactory
servants. There is no use In dillydallying nny longer.
Men can be taught how to do any
kind of work, and a green man ls no
more difficult to teach than is n green
girl, but when *t is possible It is ulways
better to hire a man tluit has had some
experience in housework. Sometimes
an aged man can be secured for very
low wuges. He may be slow ln bis
movements, and yet becuuse of his experience ho will accomplish n great
amount of work. Sometimes there is a
poor man who has tried and failed to
get tho employment ho desires, but
who will take anything he cun get.
One such did the main part of the
work in a three story and basement
house, Including the washing, for a
family of three ladies nnd one young
man. Man is especially valuable at the
house cleaning period. The ease with
which he tukes down bedsteads and
puts them up again, the swiftness with
which ho carries mattresses to the
yard nnd the common sense way In
which he beats and suns them appeal
to nny enreful housewife, as does also
the man's thorough beating of the rugs
nnd carpets, his polishing of the windows, no mntter how difficult they aro
to reach or how heavy to lift.
A woman house cleaner, no matter
how willing she may be, could not
compete with such a man, for physically she is not strong enough to do what
ls denominated heavy work, nnd when
she makes an attempt nt heavy work
the usual result is unsatisfactory. Men
do not mind the taking down of stoves
or carrying coal to the top of a house,
whereas such work to the ordinary
serving woman brings seventy sharp
pain to her side or back.
Therefore, If only for conscience's
sake, employ a man, for If Bridget goes
to the hospital nfter her work is over
tbe blame must be put whero lt belongs.
Manservants have a larger aptitude
for work than hnve women. It Is rare
when tbey sny of anything, "That Is
not my work," nnd because they aro
so competent, because of their all
around ability, tbey make themselves
more valuable. Even catering and
marketing may satisfactorily be left
to the man at tbe helm. And why
should, a woman labor under responsibility that she can set aside?
Shift responsibility when you can
and keep the care lines out of your
face. Secure the most experienced man
that you can afford. Tut that man at
the helm, and you will have more
hours of ease tban you have hitherto
imagined were possible. A trustworthy mnn enn steer nny home safely
into the most comfortable harbor.—

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Every muscle of the body controlled by tho will is connected with thu
brain, and every muscular action is
originated by nervous force, generated ln the brain and transmitted
aiong the nerves to tho muscles.
When the nerves are injured or diseased, when thero is a deficiency in
the supply of nervous energy, paralysis, locomotor atuxia or somo
form of helplessness results because
the brain has no longer control of
the muscles.

The Drill this week chronicles with
regret tho intention of W. T. Shatford

they have lieen closely identified with
the development of tho camp and their
removal will be a distinct loss.
Yale-Cariboo will have a three-cornered fight ou its hands in the next
dominion elections, the Socialists having nominated a candidate. Their
choice fell on Ernest Mills, of Greenwood, who was a candidate in the last
provincial elections. .A similar experience will be had iu Kootenay, as the
Socialists are determined to nominate,
believing their chances good for electing their candidate.
It is amusing to witness the indignation of the Nelson wholesalers over
the action of the C.P.R. in giving the
Calgary houses favored treatment to
the Crow's Nest towns, territory that
the former imagined belonged to them.
Of course, it was all right when the
merchants of the Slocan were cinched
to help out Nelson; but oh, how different now! It is another case of the
biter bitten. No sympathy will ba
forthcoming from this camp.
Poor old Paul Kruger, formerly
president of whut was once tin* Transvaal republic, is dead, and, with tlie
gracious consent of the British government, the remains will be given
burial beside those of his wife in
South Africa. Time has healed much
of the bitter feelings and antagonism
aroused by the South African war of
three years ago—a war that was caused largely by Oom Paul's undisguised
hostility to everything British—and
Britishers, as conquerors.can afford to
be generous. Each nation has lost its
beloved ruler: England, Queen Victoria; Transvaal, Oom Paul both
possessed of characters that have
made their imprint on the world's history. Kruger lived long enough to
see his people settle down under a
fuller measure of liberty and justice
than he was wont to give, such liberty
as is enjo3-ed by all peoples and creeds
acknowledging the sway of the Union
Jack.        _________
It is encouraging to note the improvement taking place in the mining
industry in the various sections of the
province.     The best   indications   of
advancement are to be seen in the
monthly smelter and shipping n't urns.
Copper will probably have a .'10 per
cent increase over last year, silver will
show greater values, zinc is making
marvelous strides, and  the output  of
lead is quite equal  to the best record
the province has made.   These tilings
nre being noted and  capital is gradually loosening  up.    Locally, the output of ore  will easily top  last year's
figures by 35 per cent, coining principally from two mines.   Despite these
admissions, however, it  must  be acknowledged that   businessmen in the
Slocan lake  towns are experiencing
the worst depression  in their history.
Population   has  become  decimated,
veal estate and Improvements possess
no solid values, mining claims are regarded as  a   burden, and   business
avenues have become restricted. Why-
is it?    Surely there is a cause and  a
remedy should be forthcoming,   The
mineral wealth  is here and is being
successfully exploited, and one cannot
but believe that more Attended operations would bring the desired change,
