The old council met in the city hall
on Monday night, for the purpose of
winding up tlu*. business of last year.
Those present were Mayor McNeish,
Aid. Smith, Henderson, Madden and
Tenter.
II. D. Curl is, as returning officer,
gave a return of the municipal elections held during the day. Accepted
and filed.
Bills presented: Pioneer Livery,hire

city ball, |80; Woodcock & Co., lamp

taxed costs $20, services as clerk, etc.,
$15; H. K. Jorand, salary for December, $1(5.74.
The mayor statid there was $379.65
in the treasury in the treasury ..fcM.-i.SD
being the last school grant. After
paying all bills and providing for the
auditor there would be $1)3 left for the
new board.
Aid. Teeter questioned Mr. Curtis'
bill and asked lor explanations. Tliey
had paid enormously for the taxed
costs of Bale and yet bills came piling
in. The council wanted to see an end
of it.
The mayor said the reason for entering up the taxed costs was that they
might draw interest irom tho iiist o'f
the year.
Mr. Curtis explained the items of
his bill aud stated that part of the
work dune was really that of the treasurer, who was drawing nosalai , but
did uot have the time to attend to it.
Aid. Teeier waited to draw attention to the point i f the man who was
not willing to do work for the eity

Instance of where a]l should strive tf

to woodcock <V Co.'s bill, live cent;
too much being charged. He had iv
sped for tho big thief, but a lessening
amount for the little thief. Excessive
charges should not be made for any
article and th" council would not stand
for it. The speaker wanted things at
this last meeting to be thoroughly
explained and understood, so that the
new council might know where thej
were at. He drew attention to the
city solicitor's big bill.which thev had
been led into unthinkingly, and the
cists were still coining, lt was a right
tlue the city that all bills should be
explained. The speaker did not 1 iit*

economize, and the "scribe should assist and not criticize.
Ou being called on, the offending
scribe staled that from the very first
individuals of the various councils had
shown ap unwarranted and uncalled
for opposition to him and his paper,
and that feeling wa.s not only in public, but in private, aud carried into
social circles. He had tried to be a

consistent, for while they objected to
the paper's bilKthosefrom other people were allowed to go unquestioned.
True, big bills weut to the paper for
the tax sale, but the council had been
informed beforehand what the costs
would be and thev went Into it with
their eyes open. If the scribe had taken advantage of a mistake made by
the council, he could have charged
them up with several hundred dollars
more. The least they could have done
was to have notified" the paper of the
special meeting. If they had explained the situation, tho paper would
gladly have helped by publishing the
notices free. Iu view of past antagonism shown, the action of the council
was construed into another blow at
the paper, hence the article. The
council could have avoided it by explaining things to the scribe.
Aid. Teeter replied at length, going
over same ground us in his previous
remarks. He contended the scribe
had not fully explained himself, and
that the council had been prompted
by ideas of economy, not opposition.
Aid. Smith (bought the scribe overestimated the opposition to him in the
council. Objection had been made to
si,me Of the bills from the paper, but
council did not believe in paying too
much for a thing. He had fell a little
sore over the item iu the paper.but he
passed it over, as he did not believe in
personalities over public matters. He
had moved not to publish tin- n rimi-
tiou notices so as to economize. The
council of 1904 had worked hard and
to the best of their ability.

Hard luck follows the Chapleau

to make things stick. Holman &

tried hard to win .success, but failure
has come instead and practically all
of the men have been given their lime

reported returns being $.'?" per ton.
When the overdraft was made good
there was not much left, and the men
were accordingly informed of the circumstances. Every effort will be
made to redeem the timechecks given
and straighten up all liabilities.
The lessees have worked hard and
deserved success. The trouble has
been with the pii'.l in handling the
ore. which requires skilful and careful
sorting. Two orthrec men remain at
the mine.
Win.!• Slocan Zinc.
The United States Zinc Co., of
Pueblo, Col., is after a supply of zinc
ore from the Slocan for their smelter,
if the zinc ores of the country are
found to be satisfactory, contracts are
to be closed with all the mineowners.
There is no ;! limit to the amount''of
zinc the companv can handle from the
Slocan district and it will take all it
can secure. The United States Zinc
Co. is making every effort to secure
ores for its new million dollar plant at

price that will leave the producer a

Smelting & Uefiuiiig Co.
Edwin Anderson, general agent oi
the l'nited States Zinc Co., visited the
Slocan this week, and. this is what lie
told the Nelson News: '*! bave not
been buying ore or trying to buy it.
tiie trip having been one simply of investigation. We bad heard that there
was a plentiful supply of ziuc ore up
hare and I came up to see. Now 1
am going back to report, antl f think
we will bo able to tlo business. I
have an idea of the quality and quantity and f think both are satisfactory.
Our chief source of supply in the past
has'been Leadville. We can still get
the ore from there, but we want other
products in the ores to make values,
and the Colorado mines do not seem
to carry high values in silver, f am
looking for ore that does carry it and
I think 1 have found it in the Slocan.
I understandithe smelters here tlo not
want zinc anil penalize ores that contain it. We can offer better terms
than that, as we are prepared "to take
the ore and pay for the silver and the
zinc. We can't pay anything for the
lead, as the duty and freight charges
reduce its value to us to nothing. But
we will not penalize ores that carry
lead, as most zinc smelters tlo.
"As a rule zinc companies want ore
cam ing 50 to 80 per cent zinc.or even
higher. We can treat it and will take
it as low as Jiii percent, or even 30 per
cent. 1 think tb" Slocan can furnish
plenty of that proportion. 1 find that
the mines in the Slocau are not lieing
worked at anything like their full capacity, and I know there are a gootl
manv causes for this condition, llut
1 believe that one of them, and by no
means the least, is that at present
there i> uo market for ziuc. An intimation that such a market can be
found will probably lead to renewed
and extended developments. My own
trip. I think has been of some service
iu conveying that knowledge to them.
Soon. I expect, the coinpanv will locate a commercial agent up lure, probably with headquarters at Nelson."

THE CORSET.
Placed   oa  Trial   and   Pound   Guilty
of Heinous Offense*.
Physical Culture magazine has put
the corset on trial and found lt guilty
of even more heinous offenses than
most of its ardent haters have ever
dreamed. Here is the true bill found
ngainst this molder of the feminine
form by the magazine:
It lessens aud sometimes ruins ths
.digestive powers.
It restricts development of the lungs
to almost half their normal size.
It destroys absolutely tbe normal
power of breathlug.
It ultimately injures and makes
shapeless, flaccid and nerveless the
flesh of tbe waist line.
It destroys the beauty lines of the
body, of the limbs, arms and bust by
restricting nourishment, by interfering
witb normal circulation and thus lessening vital power, and by the continuous aud unnaturul support of the bust
lu nn abnormal position.
It is absolutely in most cases the direct cause of weaknesses peculiar to
women, from which every corset wearer suffers at some time in her life.
It greatly weakens, sometimes destroys, or makes abuormal the Instinct
of sex.
It produces tumors and the Inflamed
condition from which women so often
turn to expensive and dangerous operations.
It causes serious displacement.
It preveuts the return of the venous
blood from parts below the waist line.
It weakens and sometimes kills unborn babies.
It ls one of the principal causes of
marltul miseries and divorces.
BEFORE GOING TO BED.
What to Do to Secnre a  Refreshing
Night's Sleep.
We are always dining into our children's ears that in order to carry a
thing through properly they must devote their whole attention to the mat-
■ter ln hand, and yet we do uot always
i set a good example. We retire for the
, night with the object of resting our
tired bodies and brains, and instead of
doing the latter we nmke up our minds
for a good thing or Indulge in a quiet
read. Now, a book may have a very
soothing effect on some people, but It ls
decidedly bnd for the majority and
only excites thc brain, so that when
we finally lie down Bleep refuses to
come to us. There is a time for everything, nnd ufter a long trying dny lt is
most important for our own health and
for the well being of our families that
we sleep well, but to do so we must
retire with this object only In view.
We intuit make up oi:.r minds not to
think, never, to read, but to secure
that refreshing sleep which Is nature's
way of preparing us for whatever vexations we may have to face on the morrow. Hreakfastiug ln bed, also, unless
one is really ill, is a most unhealthy
habit und should not be permitted.—
Exchange.
IN THE SICKROOM.
:<r"*
Wear soft shoes, but those which will
not shuttle.
Write down the doctor's orders so as
to allow of no mistake.
Wear plain wash stuff gowns which
aro ut leant two inches above the floor.
Do not have much starch iu the wearing apparel or the rustle may annoy
the Invalid.
Remember that a sick person Is painfully aware of dinorder about the room
or the nurse.
In any loug Illness keep plenty of
disinfectant arnuud the room to render
lt fresh uud Sweet.
Keep the patient well supplied with
clean bedclottllUK, as It Is not only sanitary, but refreshing, to have clean linen.
Be careful not to betray any nervousness or fuss about drafts or medicines, llo everything ill a quiet but
not stealthy fashion.

Fatal  Good  Fortune.
There is a story toid of a miner to
whom sudden good fortune brought as
sudden death. He was a man who
touched ill luck at the start and could
not get away from it. Not a grain of
gold could he find in his own claim;
his capital was exhausted; he could
not even obtain a livelihood as a laborer for others. In the depths of despair be went to the owners of a mine
long worked out and begged permission
to go down the shaft.   It was granted.
\ He went down, and 200 feet from the
surface he drove in his pick and dislodged something. He came up with
It and asked that his find might be ex-
, amlned and weighed.   That was done.
• "Is it all mine?" he asked. It was,
they told him.    "It's not the govern-
; nient's?"    No, lt was not the govern-
I nient's. "Nor anybody else's?" No,
nor anybody else's. "It all belongs
entirely  and solely te me?"    It did.
1 The nameless wanderer had found one
of the biggest nuggets unearthed. It
weighed 190 pounds of pure gold. They
turned to congratulate blm, to find
that Joy had killed him. The story Is
said to be true.

Brass   Button   Arts.
Acts were passed in the reigns of
William III., Anne and George I.
which made lt illegal for any tailor
to make or any man to wear clothes
with any buttons other than those
made of brass appended thereto. The
law further enacted that not only
Bhould any tailor who committed a
breach of lt be fined 40 shillings.
but also that he should not be able to
recover from his customer ln a court
of law the price of the suit which he
had adorned with the offending buttons. The whole object of the act wns
to protect tbe Birmingham metal button makers. A case which came before the courts in the year 1S54 or
1855, ln which a man, on being sued
by his tailor, raised a successful defense relying on the acts In question,
that the buttons on the clothes which
he had ordered were bone and not
brass, called attention to the existence
of the anachronism, and the restrictions were soon after abolished.—London King.

AFRICA'S VOLCANOES.
Th*r   Ar*  ol tba   llu.y   Order -Detail! *l
th* Great Eruptions lo Central
Africa l.ait Spring.
A -few (acta have at last reached
«he outer world concerning the great
-volcanic eruption that began on
-May 13 last in the lake region of
'Central  Africa.
The eruption was very severe for
■three -days. The wide, lava covered
plain in which the active volcanoes
.are found seemed to be covered with
flames that poured forth from many
iflssiires in the rock. What seemed to
be a column of lire was maintained
to a height of several hundred leet
■for several hours.
Near these volcanoes on tho south
as Lake Kivu, in one of whose north-
.ern bays occurred a terrific tinoqou-
■ eous eruption. The wuter for a mile
• around was turned yellow by the
aoutpouring vapor heavily charged
writ— sulphur. Many thousands of (ish
•wore killed and their bodies Uouted
on the surface.
This region north of I>ake Kivu
and Tanganyika is the greatest centre of volcanic activity in Africa,
and one of tho largest in the world;
and it was never heard of till ten
years ago. The discovery of these
volcanoes by Count von Qotjien did
considerable damage to the llioory
that volcanoes are developed only in
proximity to the sea.
These volcanoes are about 700
miles from the Indiun Ocean, almost
in tlis heart of the continent. Th-i
other great centre of present vol-
.'•itnic phenomena in Africa is also
f"    .rpu'«!  of miles  inland,   near Lake
THUdo*.
.Students •of volcanoes now think it
'is better to *say that they are loiifid
'both on the margins of the a* and
'in the neighborhood of grent deprea*1
'aions in the land surface earned by
violent movements of Che rocks,
which have produced lines of weak-
'ness, through which volcanic energy
■Is able to lind vent.
There arc eight volcanoes within
sight of one unother just m little
north of Lake Kivu. They are in
three groups. The two western
croups are composed each of three
'•extinct volcanoes, while the eastern
,^roup contains two towering mountains that are at times exceedingly
active.
In addition to the lively ebullitions
'from these craters, the region is
•richer than most other volcanic districts ln mineral and hot springs
and other manifestations of vulcan-
ism.
■Tlie two active cones are* among
the very largest in the old world and
are almost unique in their great distance from the sea. The larger of
the two, Kirungu-cha gungo, is a
•single huge con<V rising to a circular
ond unbroken rim, 11,11)50 feet in
height.
This rim encloses a inst erntct
over a mile In diameter thnt hns always been full of steam and smoke
when the visitors have peered over
the edge So that the.v have been unable to learn the nature of the crater door or of its interior walls.
It Is inferred that the crater ia of
■enormous depth, for stones rolled
ever the edge of the chasm have
merely bounded from rock to rock,
their concussions becoming fainter
and fainter with nothing to indicate
that they finally found a resting
place.
Kirungu-ndogo, the other active
cone, is at* least 11,000 foot in
height. It is likely at any time to
l.e active; and recent lava streams
around its summit huve been giving
out dazzling white Jets of steam.
It is a wonderful region. Besides
the great Volcanoes, active or extinct, are large numbers of isolated
lifeless craters, still perfect in form;
and those that are furthest from the
smoke mountains are terraced to
their tops and covered with fields ol
beans and other native crops.
Twenty years ago no one knew that
there wns a,single active volcano in'
Africa,. Since then n number of very
lively volcanoes have lieen discovered
In addition to a number of the
largest mountains on the continent
now lifeless, but which were built bjr
mighty  outpourings of  lava.

Bread your appetite does not like is
bread that is bad for your health.

Your appetite rebels against it.
The appetite is wise.

The appetite is never wrong.
We can safely leave our bread to the
judgment of the appetite.

The citizens ara to be congratulated
on the unexpected, but withal desirable, outcome of the civic nominations
on Monday, almost a full set of aldermen having been secured to govern
the city for the ensuing year, it took
considerable engineering to unite the
rival factions, but now it has been
accomplished there is every reason to
believe good fellowship will continue,
to the lasting well-being of the city.

A movement is on foot in the east
-to prohibit the use of American silver
in Canada. From a patriotic standpoint the move is all right, but iu a
business way it would work a great
hardship. Canada, to her shame be
it said, doea not possess one third sufficient coin to meet the popular needs,
consequently recourse is had to the
Yankee article. Prohibition of Amer-
ican silver would lie welcome were it
to galvanize the Canadian mint proposition into active life. Then Canadians could have their own money
made from their own product,realizing
at the same time that each ounce of
stiver purchased by thc mint benefitted Kootenay mines that much.
Liberal boasts of ousting the Con
Bervativcs from power when the legislature meets have lieen proven unwarranted. They relied upou the Socialists for assistance, but the latter say
nay. At the recent Socialist convention in Vancouver, Messrs. Williams
and Hawthornthwaitogavean account
of their stewardship as members of
the legislature They unmercifully
scored Leader of the Opposition Maedonald and his Liberal followers for
their general actions and frequent
votes against the interests of the
masses; stating also that overtures for
assistance had beeu made by the Lib*
jeral party aud had been refused.
So loug as the Conservatives continue
acting with justice with the people,tbe
Socialists have decided to support
them in the legislature. There will
lie no upsetting when the house meets
The zinc deposits of the Sloean are

favor and numerous outside agents
are seeking purchases. Perhaps the
most important move of late has been
that of tho American smelting (rust,

Business
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
one road to success;
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
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
