Cravenette Hats are favorites with men  who take a self-respecting pride in their personal  appearance, They always look well for they are  fashioned in the newest and most stylish shapes*,  are made of the best hat material by skilled workmen, and are rendered weather prdof by the famous  cravenettirig process.  That is why Mallory Cravenette hats  not only  look well when you  buy them, but they stay that  way.    They do not spot from rain drops, nor run  in the wetting of a   downpour;  and  they  do not  fade and took shabby from sunlight.    They please  the most fastidious and most economical  by  their  double qualities of look well and wear well.  'Mallory Hats are Union made.  The price of a Mallory Hat is $4.50.

The score qf S3 to 78 was in  favor of the home team, though  they had-their work cut out for  them to make it.  Morey of the visitors is an exceptionally good bat, and the  bowling of Somer in the first innings was effective.  However, the stalwart batting  of J. ly. Coles and. tne sharp work  of the Greenwood field showed  the visitors that they need more  practice.  The Myacaster boysj&re a fine  looking bunch of men, and are  quite capable of giying the  Greenwood team or any other  local cricket eleven a hard race in  agame.

The ranchers in the Boundary  district are realizing the value of  co-operation,'and "taking a leaf  out of the book which their cousins across the. line have found it  so profitable to follow, are forming associations.Tor the advancement ot their several localities.  Mycaster led,the way and on  Wednesday night Bridesville followed suit, and on Saturday week  a meeting will be. held at Hock  Creek (which is-between the two)  with a similar object in view.  Despite the .fact that it was  called on short notice'the Bridesville meeting was well attended  by the ranchers of theV neighborhood, and if was decided to institute a Bridesviliebranch of the  Farmers' Association of the Boundary country.  Mr. Ed. Stiles was elected to  chair and Mr. A. B. Sowter, the  founder of the TMyacaster branch  (who attended with; Mr. Or. Ni  Leach to represent Myncaster),  explained the objects cf the meeting; '..        .     '-;r .���;_    j:  They wanted, he said, co-oper-  ion among the "ranchers   in   the  Boundary district in -order   that  they might buy in th��:. cheapest  market and sell in the  dearest,  and they hoped to form   kindred  associations in other parts of the  country.    Farmers labored under  many disadvantages in this part.  When   the    line    was    taken  through they would have'a   permanent" market:;.'''but&heyv must  induce the Railway Commissioners to revise the present  classification on lines parallel with those  in operation in the State of Washington. -  The Boundary district had the  mountain rate, which if maintained will leave them unable to  avail themselves of the future  coast market or those to rti'e eastward because the American by  reason of his better rate could  knock their prices even taking into consideration the duty; and  when the elections came they  must fight for an alteration of  that state of things.  The formation of such an' association - would enable them to  unite in the purchase of agricultural implements. Most of them  had to buy their things through ter  ritorial agents, but, when'banded  together they would have a financial standing which would enable them to get better terms.  Thai principle might be applied  to groceries and other commodities. Already Americans from  around Chesaw had cut into the  local markets, and had they of  the Boundary district been banded together, they might have secured certain contracts which  they had lost,  Mr. R. W. Taylor, a prominent'  rancher in the district, was unanimously elected   president of the  local branch,   with   Mr.  Stiles,  secretary pro tern, and committee  as follows :  D. McBride, C. Charlton, M. Char-  leton, Mr. Kingsley, J. Johnston,  J. Ingram, F. Schorn.  A discussion followed in the  course of which the vicinity of  the revision of the freight rates  was emphasized, the opinion being expressed that this should be  one of the first objects of the association.  Mr. C. Charlton urged the necessity of getting a duty on grain  and hay equal to the American  duty.  It was mentioned that it was  cheaper to ship hay from Oroville  to Ferry than from Midway to  Greenwood.  Mr. Case said that the farmers  in the district could make good  prices but the profits were taken  away from them in various ways  and largely by the middlemen.  During the'past week many  and varied rumors concerning the  capture of the Midway niurderers  have circulated through the daily  press.  Beyond  the" fact that  posses  are   still    out    on     the    hunt  there is nothing to those reports.  :   Here on the grouad, tho se who  are familiar with   the   situation  have sifted things down, and it is  their opinion that when the highwaymen are caught and  brought  in, which it is earnestly   hoped  will happen, it will be found that  they might have  been   captured  in their beds in Greenwood hotels  days   after   their  first deeds of  violenee were committed.  MINES RESUME.T0  SMELT NEXT WEEK  The Brooklyn, Rawhide, Mountain Rose and Sunset mines of  the Dominion Copper Co. are all  working.  At their smelter at Boundary  Falls they have received IS cars  of coke from Nelson and a few  cars from the coast.  They have 1.500 tons ot coke  on the road, and will blow in all'  their furnaces early next week.  It is .expected that a steady supply of coke from the Crow's Nest  ovens will very soon be resumed,  and fair winds will again prevail  for all the smelting interests in  the Boundary.   .    '  Police Protection,  Presbytery of Kootenay  The Presbytery of Kootenay is  in session this week at St. Paul's  church,Nelson,with the following  personnel in attendance :  \ Rev. J. F. Ferguson, Moderator;  the Revs. J. M. Millar, Nanaimo,  Moderator/of the Synod of B. C;  ,G. A.

McKee,  Greenwood; Mr. Kenmure,   Slo-  can; Mr. Chalmers, New Denver;  Mr. Simpson, Kaslo, and   student  missionaries, Messrs. Rose,   Cascade; Leslie, Hosmer, and Kerr,  Aiusworth.'"*  1860-1908.  Boundary is Best Yet  Spencer Bennerman and Fred  Moser who left here last spring  to prospect:i%ff^'e^ir��rgeb��'��;ake  country in New Ontario, have re-  turned to the Boundary.  Mr. Bennerman reports very  little activity in mining in that  section.-  - He says that Mike Kane is doing development work on his iron  properties near Sturgeon Lake.  Mr. Bennerman brought back  some verv fine specimens of gold  ore from his own claim in the  Ontario mineral belt.  Mr. James Copeland,'  rancher  and miner of Bridesville, was  a  guest at the Pioneer   hotel   on  Monday.  Mr Copeland came to the Boundary Creek in 1860 along with 600  other argonauts, and he is still ia  the mining business, being the  owner of the Le Roy claim on  the Forks of Rock Creek.  In those early days the nearest  post offices were"at Walla Walla  and old Fort Hope, and placer  gold was all that appealed to the  daring frontiersman.  Since the advent of   the   railroad with the consequent settling  of the arable areas by the farmer  and the fruit grower j- the district  I is experiencing a rapid ch ange,  and it is interesting  to hear  the  old-timer drift   away   from   the  reminisceu.tto^ho^W&tiCjal '^jfe'.-  velopments of the present, and en- j  thusiastically   dilate   upon    the  crops of hay and grain and vegetables and fruit that are now produced on the sunny  slopes   and  ualleys of the Boundary country.  C. L. Thomet is dead.    Ope of  the bravest of the brave, he died  trying to defend his own against  a couple of -murderous   bandits  from across the line.    Under the  boasted protection of the British  flag, Charlie Thomet should have  had a fair show for his life but  under the police protection furnifi-  hed by a paternal  government in  this   province   he   never had a  chance.   Charlie   Thomet's   life  seems a terrible price   to   pay in '  order that   attention   might   be  called to the criminal neglect on  the part of the authorities in this  province.    At one tiime we had  along the international Boundary .  line a police force that upheld the  majesty of British law, and   the  lawless kept on their  own   side.  Under the police system today the  good men have been starved out  and those that remain are   given  no encouragement.  No greater crime could be committed against Southern British  Columbia than to,allow the impression to go abroad that violence can be committed here with  impunity.  The death of Charlie Thcmet  is but the culminating event in a  long series of crimes all of which  went unpunished through the  inefficiency or inadequacy of the  police force.  A brave man tried.to do what  the police should have done  months ago. , It is an awful price  to pay but the cost will not be  too great if Charlie Thomet in  his courageous death has taught  th* au thofi ties 'bf Bfi tish'Col u nf-' "  bia that law and order must be  maintained in this country without regard to the cost entailed.  "GP..R. Strike,  A crisis is approaching in the  mechanics strike on the Canadian  Pacific Railway. It is understood  that the committee now in session  in Montreal, representing all the  orders and unions to which the  employees belong, have given the  company    this   week   to   decide  whether it will  meet   this committee in conference with    the  object of settling the strike or the  entire system, is to be tied up.  '  The committee ia Montreal represents not only the mechanics,  boilermakers     and    carmen    on  strike but   also   the engineers',  trainmen, conductors,and firemen.  Former Master Mechanic Cross,  of Winnipeg, is now in England,  having been  sent there by the  company to hire mechanics.  It seems to be a fight between  the unions and the Canadian Pacific, the company having made up  its mind to test its stregth.  Ash Kennedy, representing the  Brotherhood of Railway Engineers, is the head of the committee. He is a man of great influence with the unions, having  been instrumental in settling the Butcher'Biiy!.  strike on the Canadian Northern ��""���-;;-  Railway a year ago.  Smashed the Rig.  While on.the war-path after  the highwaymen, Constable Aston, of Midway, tied his horse to  a fence a short distance below  Anaconda.  A passing train frightened the  animal with the result that the  buggy was demolished and the  horse was slightly injured.  Labor Day at Phoenix,  Remember the close season for  Willow Grouse during the month  of September. Prairie chicken  are protected until next year.  The Labor Day celebration at  Phoenix promises to be the most  important athletic event of the  season. There will be putting  the shot, the broad jump, a drilling contest, and many other features.  With the stalwart miners representing tne tour comers of the  eartb, not forgetting Nova Scotia  and The Island, the, Phosnix  games should be a com pat ion of  athletic prowess that will be remembered in the Boundary country.  ^BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE "  1904, ^^^f^^^^^i^^^^, -i-Wia* 1901, ,���, TOi  MlNB,"  Granby Mines....

A custom has grown up'in Canada  of using the flag of the merchant  marine plus the national coat of  arms���a design which is so natural and graceful that it has been  adopted by common consent, but  which violates in some mysterious  way the silly pedantry of heraldry. The minister essays to correct what is, from the point of view  of heraldry, an offense to propriety; but the design has become too  firmly established to be easily displaced. His best course now  would be to quietly close an incident that is sure to give rise to  misunderstanding abroad and to  create a mild scandal in the eyes  of the world���Keremeos Trumpet  SUBSCRIPTIONS IN AfiVANCE.  Pbr Ybak ^.    2 00  Sir Months  125  To Foreign Countries. 2 SO  BgL>  FRIDAY,   SEPTEMBER 4, 1908  The depression of business  which has been so severely felt  all over the civilized world is  slowly but surely passing away.  In Canada the wheels of business have already resumed their  normal speed.  In some of the principal centres  the bank clearings have even exceeded the figures attained during the days of unexampled prosperity.  Our exports and imports have  commenced to expand in harmony!  with   the   general tendencies of  trade.  The Federal revenue is increasing and will show a satisfactory  surplus at the close of the fiscal  year.  The splendid harvest and the  continuation of the great works  of development has placed the  coun try in a position that commands the attention of the world,  and the future of the Dominion  looms bigger and brighter at the  preseut time than it ever did before.  The rains of the past week have  put the forest fires under control,  and no further trouble is expected from that source during this  year.  While they lasted they played  havoc with the standing timber  of the Boundary country, and we  would urge those who have charge  of such matters to be in ready-  imess to��preyent��a recurrence of  the misfortune when the next dry  season comes around.  It is a regrettable   shame that  fire   should   be   let destroy more  f.timber than the logger's axe.  ��� A more efficient system of forest  patrol is badly needed in British  Columbia.  DEEPENING CHASE'S RIFFLE  The    Dominion     Government  dredge, which has been stationed  at Salmon Arm for several months  dredging the channel to the new  wharf just constructed   there by  the federal government, was towed down to ��� Chase's   riffle, Shus-  wap, last week and-will   at once  be set to work to improve the conditions existing at  that point so  as to ensure safe and easy   navigation at all stages of water.   It  is intended to cut   two channels  through   the   gravel,   the   full  length of the riffle, each cut   being   60   feet   wide and giving a  depth of eight feet at low water.  The need of this work is apparent to all who have made the trip  up the South Thompson, and it is  easily one of the best and   most  useful moves made by the department concerned in   this   section.  The work will be carried   on   by  Jos. Johnson under the direction  of F. W..Aylmer, dominion   engineer.  The riffle and the Little river,'the  latter connecting the Little and  Great Shuswap lakes, constitute  the most serious obstacles to navigating the Seuth Thompson during low water, and it is satisfac-  tory to note that Duncan Ross,  M.P., is seeing that the money  appropriated for improving the  navigation of the Thompson rivers is being used to good advantage.���Inland Sentinel.*  The Vernon Fall fair will be  held on September 16, 17 and 18.  The Vancouver World has' entered an action for $50,000 dam.  ages against the Province newspaper of that city.  It is very often said that "Eve'  had the   best husband in world  ���at that time.  The provincial government has  decided to grant $25,000 towards  a new school building at Fernie,  $5,000 for streets and sidewalks  and $5i0<00 towards the cost of  municipal buildings. The bridges  over Elk River and Goal-Creek  will also be re-built immediately.  Mr. John P. McConnell, editor  of the Vancouver Sunset,has purchased the Edmonton Journal..  Mr. McConnell wields a facile  pen, and ought to make the Journal a conspicuous success. He is  entitled to congratulations likewise upon having taken to himself a wife.

It Is astonishing how great a change a  few years of married life often make in  the appearance and disposition of many  women. The freshness, the charm, tho j,  brilliance'vanish like the hloornsfrom a  peach which Is rndely handled. The  matron is only a dim shadow, a faint echo  of the charming maiden. There are two  reasons for this change, ignorance and  neglect. Few young women appreciate  the shock to the system through tho  change which comes with marriage and  motherhood.

W. Jones, of the National Rifle Association, of  London.  He carried off first   in   the Edge  matcb/for prizes aggregating $250  contributed by Major Edge. This  is the stiffest of the long-distance  matches, the contestants   firing  fifteen shots at 1,000 yards. Jones  scored 73 out of a possible 75 at  each range, his total  being   six  points above the best previous record.    In the Halford Memorial  match he won first  with   fifteen  bulls, or a possible   75 . points at  900 yards, and 72 points   out   of  the same possible at 1,000 yards.  Ia the Waldegrave match at   800  yards   he   won   second   with 98  points   out   of   a   possible  100.  Quite the most important victory  of the contest was   the winning  ���t   the   Hopton   challenge   cup,  which   is   given  for the highest  aggregate score in six matches���  the Edge, Halford,   Waldegrave,  Albert, Bass and Wimbledon.   In  these   Jones   made an aggregate  of 71b points out of a possible 750,  beating the  previous   records by  20 points.  The Times, Daily Erpres��,  Daily Mail, Chronicle, Standard,  and Daily News all speak in enthusiastic terms of what they call  the victory for the Ross rifle  f roni(Canada,which-madft an unexpected and altogether successful  appearance and excelled all the  field of the world's rifles, so that  as the Morning Post says, "our  own Lee-Enfield is apparently  lagging behind in the great race  Recent reports from the new  placer diggings in the Ingenika  country are unfavorable.

A novel scheme for the rebuild"  iag of Fernie has been adopted  by the executive committee *on  the recommendation of the Fernie Miner's Union.  The plan as outlined in the resolution of the union and adopted  %y the executive is as follows :  "Be it resolved that immediate  measures be adopted to assist  those who desire to rebuild their  homes in Fernie.  "We therefore set aside the sum  of $60,000 for that purpose, That  we issue a call for tenders for  $50,000 wortk of lumber, suitable  for building purposes, and also  tenders for $10 000 worth of building supplies, and that lumber and  supplies be furnished to those requesting them, at cost price ; the  cost of which is to be repaid by  instalments extending over a period pf six years, free of interest.  F. H. Sherman, U, M. W. of A."  It is hoped by the above scheme  to enable those who were left destitute by the late fire to rebuild  their homes before winter seisin. J  It is a sort of co-operative scheme,  as other mechanics who will be  engaged on the work will be paid  out of the $10,000 set apart and  out of the instalments paid, in on  account of the loan."

Then'why^ does not  everybody fake Cod Liver Oil and  Iron? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is scientifically combined with the Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable and the Iron digestible.  While  FERROL  is manufactured from -the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and is richer in oil than any other  emulsion, and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  and Phosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds any trouble in taking it,  and infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover the well-established value of  the Oil and Iron is immensely  enhanced by the "process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to be wondered at that  physicians everywhere " have fully  endorsed FERROL and used it largely  in their practice. fcERROL is invaluable for the treatment of any kind of j  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  " You Know What -  You Take"  The Best Appointed Working men's Hotel in the City  Lighted    throughout   with  Ulectricity.

The  organization is really the, mouthpiece of the apple dealers on the  other side of the line.   This being so, the action taken is fell-the  more noteworthy. > What has been  done is equivalent to an official  request to. Congress from those  who handle the commercial apple  'crop of the neighboring states, to  provide for a system^ of   govern-  menfinspection  similiar to  that  now enforced  in Canada.   The  request made is not cause for surprise to people who have watched  the trend of  recent   discussions  among those interested iu the Am-  v  erican expert apple trade. United  States consuls in Great Britain  Have frequently pointed out that  apples from New York,- Maine,  Michican, and other apple producing states were being passed  over by< British   buyers ��� in favor  of similiar fruit from Canada,  and, the .reason given was;, that  Canadian goods had been.packed  subject to govemmet t inspection,  while those from the other" side  of the border had not.

When our commercial  'rivals are preparing to copy our  example in the-matter, of public  control over the', quality of the  goods put up, it is hardly the  time to suggest a lessening of the  restrictions which are now in  force in this country with a view  of making sure that the contents  shall agree with the label.���Tor  onto Stat.  .
