Seward, then United States senator  from New York, made a summer trip  to Canada and sailed from Quebec to  spend two months cruising iii the Gulf  of St. Lawrence and along the coast  of Labrador. During his trip he kept  a dairy from which a wonderful  prophecy about Canada has just been  unearthed by Busy Man's Magazine.  The prophecy reads in part asfol-  lows:  " Hitherto, in common with most  of my countrymen, as 1 suppose, I  have thought Canada, or to speak  more accurately north of the United  States, easily detachible from the parent state, but incapable of sustaining  itself, and therefore ultimately, nay,  right soon, to be taken in by the Federal Union, without materially changing or affecting its own condition or  development. I have dropped the  opinion as a national conceit. I see  in the British North America, stretching as it does, across the continent  from the shores of Labrador and  Newfoundland to the Paciffc, the elements of wealth. I find its inhabitants vigorous, hardy, energetic and  perfected by the Protestant religion  and British constitutional liberty I  find them jealous of the United States  and of Great Britain, as they ought  to be; and therefore when I look at  their extent and resources 1 know  they can neither be conquered by the  former nor permanently held by the  latter.  " The policy of the United States  is to propitiate and secure the alliance  of Canada while it is yet young and  incurious as to its future. But on the  other hand the policy which the  United States actually pursues is the  infatuated one of rejecting and spurning vigorous, perennial and evergrowing Canada, while seeking to establish  feeble states out of decaying Spanish  provinces, on the coast and in the  islands of the Gulf of Mexico."  TEN YEARS AGO  ABOUT THE  ELRHORN MINE  The Elkhorn mine, situated at the  extreme north end of the town, and  within ten minutes' walk of the post-  office, is a mine with a history. Located in 'the early nineties by Tom  McDonnell, it passed later into the  hands of C. S. Thomet, who traded  his ranch, now Boundary Creek City,  and a beautiful white mare for the  then prospect, now known as the  Elkhorn mine. Prior to Thomet's  death, at the hands of the Midway  holdups, he sold the Elkhorn to Jim  Sutherland and Phil McDonald. A  company was formed to operate the  mine, the surface being laid out in  lots as a residential suburb of Greenwood. The company was most active in 1905, when over $74,000  worth of ore was stoped from the 80-  foot level of the 142-foot shaft. The  Elkhorn mine was started at the grass  roots in December, 1902, and drifts  have been run at various levels showing up a strong vein of really rich  silver ore. There are three known  veins on the property. The ore contains massive native, ruby and anti-  monial silver, grey copper, and iron  and copper pyrites in a quartz gangue.  Some fabulous assays have been obtained, but the ore averages $20 in  gold, and 180 ounces in silver. This  mine adjoins the Providence on the  west and the Goldbug on the east.  PLEASURE OF GARDENING  PREFERS CANADA  TO UNITED STATES  .A Jvlinnesotaii, who bought a farm  in Saskatchewan, after giving a glowing account of his prosperous new  home on this side of the line, gives  his views and opinions as follows:  " I'll tell you what it boils down to.  Ever   since   the   settlement   of   this  country began, it has been understood  and  recognized   that  the  man  who  breaks the law is coin���r to   he  Jailed.  It doesn't matter if he is  as spr   a:, .  gopher, or as husky as a  buffalo.    I  don't make any odds   if he can .TawI  into a prairie dog's hole.  If be breaks  the law he is going to  be jailed, good  and sure.    He can  have 50 guns and  $50,000;   he  can  have any sort of  blame  pull  you  like���but   he is just  going to be jailed.    It may take a day,  a week, or a year, but  he'll  be jailed  sure.    May be he'll kill a Northwest  policeman���may be  he will,    Well,  then he'll hang for a dead sure thing.  He'll never buy a  Northwest .policeman, nor he'll never escape jail if  he  breaks the  law.    All Canada knows  it, and we Americans  know  it, and  that's   why  this country   is  a  good  country to live in."  TENNIS CLUB DANCE  w  OUTLOOK  (From Bnuudary  Creek   Times of May 0, 1900)  The Mother Lode spur is now  open for business.  A large party of C. P. R, officials came in on yesterday's train.  Percy Dean, local C. P. R,.  agent, has returned from Leth-  bridge.  The prospect work on the Dayton claim, near Camp McKinney,  has shown up some splendid ore.  There are five hundred tons of  Waterloo mine ore ready to stope.  The mill resumed operations this  week.  A bush fire occurred at the B.  C. mine this week, which extended over several acres, The  office, shaft and power houses  had a narrow escape,  Phoenix was startled this morning by a giant explosion. Seventy-five pounds blew^the powder  house to atoms. Frank Clem-  grene was seriously injured.  EULOGIZE FIELDING  These fine mornings people of all  sorts  and   conditions  are  at work in  their gardens.    Here the busy housekeeper  steals  an   hour  in  the  early  morning or late in the evening to plant  seeds and cuttings, or transplant roots  and shrubs.    There, a sturdy work  man spends his spare time in breaking  up the sod and making the new ground  ready  for  vegetables  or  fruit trees.  Behind many hedges and ivy-covered  fences older ladies and gentlemen are  tending the roses and vines and plants,  of many   kinds   which  season  after  season for a quarter of a  century or  more have gladdened their eyes with  beautiful blossoms.    In most of these  Chinamen are doing the heavier work  under the  direction  of the  owners.  AH these gardeners are pursuing their  work for their own pleasure or profit,  and a rich return it gives  them.    But  there is not one  who  is  not a public  benefactor.    There is not an owner  of a nicely  kept lawn  or a beautiful  flower  garden  who  does not make,  not only the members of the  family  and the.people of the  neighborhood,  but everyone who goes  by,   happier.  The man or woman who can  pass a  blossoming orchard,   a  bed of brilliantly colored  tulips  or a border of  nodding daffodils without a feeding of  pleasure  must be either very sad or  very  stupid.    As   for   the children,  there is  not a  blossom blowing that  does not give them delight.  A BIG VESSEL  The general sentiment throughout  the country is decidedly more hopeful,  due party to the extraordinarily lar^e  grain crop in view.  The meat situation is the most serious which confronts us. Cattlemen  think that the country is in an initial  stage of a beef famine, which may  last several years, as no remedial  effort is V-.:',h-j made. The meat  ���' urtage <.u: only be relieved by the  >' Mrs ht-iii�� ukcii off Canadian and  >:-'.vir;ui caul; :i-j.| rushed into the  fcoim;.' tir<Hiriiis 1,1 the West f> mature.  I he iron and steel industries have  at present a big accumulation of orders which will take till fall to complete.  The copper market in the United  Kingdom is weak and prices have  taken a decided dip.  There is a strong probability of  aluminum taking the place of copper  in electrical works in the event of an  advance in the copper market.  THE BOSTONIANS  The Dance by this association  was a most enjoyable affair.  The attendance was very large  and in all respect a decided success. The supper supplied by  the ladies mast have been keenly  enjoyed, as very few scrap9 were  left.  The music performed by Miss  Hartmann and George Clerf was  splendidly rendered. The committee, Messrs. Browning, Meyers  and Rochon, performed their du  ties like heroes.  B, G. ESTIMATES  The Ottawa estimates for Brit,  ish Columbia includes the following items: Revelstoke public  building, $10,000; Columbia and  Kootenay river wharves, $14,000;  extension of the government telegraph lines in British Columbia, $54,350.  CONTROVERSY   SETTLED  VICTORIA DAY  El  With patriotism that i-; ii'irivijit-  and with a love for one of tbe  noblest of women, tbe fullness of  which is cv��t apparent tli... ppnplo  of this broad dominion turn lYi.n.  year to year lo the cHtin aiion of  a day that marked the- advent into  this world of Hie I Me and lamented (Jucen Victoria.  Throughout Hit civiliz-d world  there is an ever intensilying regard for Hip de.;c��sc.i tiiI..t, and  it is pleasing and ij-rjitifving to  know that lhe circle of her admirers reach;.':; i>c>o:i(l the confines ot the IJriti .:.' Kti; ire. V/e  trust that Victoria Da\ will over  be sustained, and tii.it. i\u: Lutir  will never come that we will ho  forced through the materialism of  a materialistic world to pass into  oblivion this memorable event.  THE STRIKE SITUATION  The preformance on Tuesday  evening of this talented troop  was given to a decidedly crowded  house, which is a very safe criterion as to their popularity and  the efficiency of these favorites to  provide a very enjoyable evenings  amusement. The programme's  principal feature, Berta's Billions,  was well carried out, each  character in the play being very  creditably sustained. The Bos-  tonians may feel tha.t a repeat of  their visit to Greenwood, means  coming among friends,  MAY BE AN ELECTION  There are rumors of a federal  election this fall. Advices from  Ottawa are to the effect that preliminary plans have already been  laid aud that a contest will occur.  There are many signs that point  to an early appeal.  C. P.P.  Nothing important has transpired bearing upon the strike  difficulty. Quite a number of  men have left for new fields of  work, as apparently our neighbors at Phoenix and Grand Forks  are blessed with uninterrupted  labor, at both these camps, and  all is going along smoothly.  The B. C. Copper Co., is busy  making needed repairs, and a  general overhauling, indicating  an early resumption of work,  which, we trust, will be made  good at an early date.  The tunnels, both Greeuwood-  Phoeuix and the Argo, are going along in the even tenor of  their way, and very satisfactory  progress is being made at both  places.  STRONG RUMOR THIS  An appreciative article on tho  Hon. W. S. Fielding, finance  minister of Canada, by " M," appears in the National Review. It  says if Laurier is the Grand  Seugneur of Cauadian politics,  Fielding is essentially the business man of the party. The  article deals mainly with the  financial career of the "Minister  of Surplusses," and gives him  credit for taking the first practical step in the policy of preference, which is called one of the  greatest strokes in imperial statesmanship the world has yet seen.  "M" concludes that there are  ample grounds for reflection that  Fielding is not to be bullied by  Germany, the United States or  any other country, He has not  hitherto forgotten, while further*  ing Canada's interests, that he is  also a statesman of the whole  British empire.  In the by-election at Crew, England, a Liberal has been elected  by a majority of 1,598 votes.  The Colossus, Britain's biggest  battleship, was launched at Greenock recently. She is the first of  the Dreadnought type to be built  on the Clyde. Tbe central feature, the great warship herself,  was a blaze of color from stem to  stern. The company which gathered on the platform at tbe bow  of the ship was a representative  one. At the king's behest Lady  Colebrooke was present to perform the launching ceremony. ���  The impressive religious service  prescribed for use at the launching of ships of his majesty's  navy was conducted by Rev. W.  J. Nichol Service, of Greenock  West Kirk, and thereafter Lady  Colebrooke broke the customary  bottle of wine on the ship's bow  and cut the ribbon which released  the levers and set free the great  battleship.  MASSACRE OF JEWS  At Pittsburg, "40,000 striking  miners and operators on the soft  coal district, has decided to return to work, and the strike is  settled.  RAILWAYS MATTERS  Six camps have been located  between Princeton and Tularaeen,  and construction work on the V.  V. & E. between these points is  in full swing.  LUMBERING INTERESTS  The various saw mills in and  around Fernie have all commenced operation and a phenomenal  cut is looked for this season.  EASY MONEY  The liquor and gaming house  fines imposed last week in connection with the Prince Rupert  "clean-up" amounted  to $5,050.  GENERAL NOTES  Advices recently received "are to  the effect that the reported massacre of Jews at Kieff is a baseless fabrication,  The revolt in Albania ia dying  out from the crushing defeat of  the rebels by Turkish troops.  Nova Scotia has adopted prohibition.  Prof. Waller, of Morristown,  N. J., has grown a genuine blue  rose.  The total immigration into  Canada for March was 33,075,  compared with 16,464 last year.  C. F. Hannington is now at  work on the location line for the  C. N. R. between Kamloops and  Lytton.  The naval estimates have been  passed at Ottawa, but as vet no  money has been voted for the construction of new ships.  The Prince Rupert Journal is  the name of a new paper to appear at Prince Rupert, with O. II,  Nelson as editor.  It is reported that the through  double service will not go into  operation until May 15th.  In certain well informed circles  it was reported that King Edward is opposed to receiving Colonel Roosevelt personally and to  showering him with honors under  the belief that the ex-president is  creating a strong republican sentiment throughout Euiope.  Prince Rupert was a distinguished Cavalry leader.  THE CANADIAN BANK  OF COMMERCE  HEAD   OFFICE. TORONTO  ESTABLISHED   1867  B. E.

A program of sports, football, lacrosse, baseball, cricket,  horse racing and lots of other interesting events would make a  pleasantly spent atternoon for our  citizens, and a change-off from  worrying over our present disagreeable outlook. Make it, as  far as we possibly can, free of  expense to our citizens. Make a  break in the monotony of our life  here. Let our live men take the  matter up and push it to a successful issue.

Today we have a  strike to face.     What's the  odds.  It might have been so very much  worse. We have lived through  other strikes and still been able  to buy blacking for our shoes, and  pay for it, too. The the strike  affects the most of us, for there  will bo less people for a while to  read our miserable editorials, less  men around town to wear out our  Brussels carpets, less money  thrown about the streets to the  *' indigent poor," less ice cream  and cake for the small boy and  girl, yet here's our solace: It  ���won't last forever, and in the  meantime we can do without our  ���shoe polish, swear off ice cream,  beat our silk carpets (they need  it), smile and. cheer up,   and look  There is a law in Canada that  no one shall be allowed to land  who has not twenty-five dollars.

Thin or lean or scrawny people will  lind in Mi-o-na a maker of flesh and  blood, because it causes the stomach to  extract more nutritious matter from the  food,which quickly enriches the blood.

According to press reports from Republic,   Wash.,  the  Lone Pine-Surprise mine at that camp  is to be sold  for the sum.of $1,500,000.  It is announced from Ottawa that  the Dominion government has decided to make a general . codification  of the mining laws of Canada, which  would do away with the present confusing state of affairs.  It looks at the present time that experiments in zinc smelting would be  carried out at Nelson, B. C. The  work can be done more economically  as electric power can be had from the  West Kootenay Power and Light Co.  at a low cost. __^___^  Work on the new mill  at Long  i  lake is now nearingf completion and  the construction of the tramway between the Jewel mine and the mill,  about half a mile distant, is now under  ���"way. Another month should see the  plant in operation.  At the annual meeting at Nelson of  the Nugget Gold Mines,   Ltd., ope-  i rating at Sheep Creek, the old direct-  [J,|, ory were elected, and the report presented   was   decidedly    satisfactory,  showing good financial management  an_ excellent indications of a successful year at the mine. ' Last year  $5,000 tons were milled, producing  $78,860. The concentrates iiyeraged  $5,200 at the smelter.. ���        '^--y.._'--r-  The fact that the^Kew. 'Portland  Canal issues easily find buyers whenever they are> offered, testifies that  the public look on this: .district'with  much fsvor. The bonding of claims  announced recently by trie; 'Mackenzie & Mann interests, cannot fail to  have a good effect on the whole district.    Confirmation of the recently reported strike in the War Eagle mine  at Rossland of an entirely new ore  body of high grade ore has been  made, and the importance of the discovery has been rather under than  overestimated. The shipments are  said to average $40 per ton in gold  and about 5 per cent in copper.  The Belcher mine at Republic,  Wash., has been closed down until  the company completes the erection  of a smelter of their own. The  smelter is to be . erected at Belcher  junction at a cost of a quarter of a  million dollars. The ore of the  Belcher is similar to that of the  Granby, but the company, who have  been shipping to Trail for some  months past, believe that better re-  rurns can be secured from a smelter  of their own. i  The splendid work of Chamberlain's  Stomach and Liver Tablets is daily  coming to light.

A.  profit to the industrious settler: ;r Petrie, minister  ' After having been engaged in  growing fruit in Ontario^practically  allimyhfe, I came to the ..Kootenay  district about-seven yeajfs ago^ind-took'  up fruit growing. , The�� result-of' my  efforts have been extremely favorable,  and I can candidly say that I would  not exchange one acre of bearing  fruit trees in Kootenay district for ten  acres , in Ontario. My reasons for  these statements are as follows:  The trees here begin to bear at  an earlier age. The yield is almost  double. The quality and color are  unsurpassed. The keeping qualities  of the fruit, perhaps due to atmosphere, are much superior. The market facilities are unequalled. The  yield of strawberries, raspberries and  other small fruits is enormous.  In consequence, 1 have found  that the profits per acre are three-fold  or more over that of Ontario. I  have had returns from raspberries at  the rate of $900 per acre. One of  my peach trees in 1905 yielded $35,  and 70 peach trees can be planted to  the acre. Apple trees planted 12  years yield as much as $18 per tree,  and it is customary to plant 50 trees  to the acre. Two early Richmond  cherry trees averaged $23 each for  three years, and I plant about 60  cherry trees to the acre.  In order, to get the best results  from the land it is advisable to plant  small fruits between the rows of trees  in the orchard. Several rows of raspberries, currants, gooseberries or  strawberries can be planted between  the rows of the orchard fruits."  LARGE ESTATE LEFT  It was learned trom those who  have had charge of Mr. Clemens'  business affairs, that he leaves  an estate valued at a million dollars or probably a little less.

I  want a man with a spirit clean, and an  honest, hopeful face; I want a man  with an earnest wish to climb to the  highest place. I have sought him  high, I have sought him low, and I'm  almost in despair, I've hunted him  through the billiard halls and I didn't  findjiim there. I want a man with  a purpose high that always he keeps  in view; I want a man with a soul attuned to the things that are good and  true; a youth that knows that the rich  rewards are not for the idle shirk; a  youth who comes from a pleasant  home, and comes with a zest for  work; I've sought this youth till my  feet are tired, and my mind is filled  with care; I looked for him in the  grog bazaars, and I didn't find him  there. I want a youth with a healthy  mind who sees that the world is good,  who knows that the men who win belong to industry's brotherhood; I  want a youth who would rather own  a dime that is fairly earned, than rolls  of gold that were won at night in a  room where the cards are turned;  alas, alas! such a golden youth in this  weary old world is rare.

Laugill, " The Manse,"  Carp, Ont., writes: "Some considerable time ago I began using Zamliuk  with a view to testing it thoroughly.  [ am troubled, with eczema, which is  always worse in the early part of the  winter, and seems to leave me about  spring. I tried Zam-Buk immediately  my hands started to break out, and am  pleased to say that it checked the disease, which is more than I can say for  anything I ha.ve ever before tried. We  now have Zam-Buk in the house continuously. The children use it for  scratches, cuts and any skin injury or  disease, and I carry a small sample box  in my pocket. One evening I happened  to look in where an old man had mot  with an accident a week before, and  had lost a finger nail. His wife was  dressing the wound. I dressed it with  Zam-Buk and left the little sample box  with them for the next dressing. I  have seen the old gentleman since, and  he has now the same high opinion of  Zam-Buk as myself and my family  have.  " On another occasion a farmer  called at' The Manse,' and I noticed a  r&g on his finger, Enquiring about  the injury, I learned that he had sonie-  hp-r taken a piece of flesh off, and the  wound had started to fester. He was  afraid that it would turn to blood-  poisoning". I gave him about a third of  & box of Zam-Buk and he applied it.  A few days later I saw him, and he.  said, ' That's great salve of yours; my  finger is now doing fine.'"  This is a Scotchman's opinion; it has  taken a good while to convince him,  but he wanted to make sure of Zam-  Buk's merit before endorsing it. " It  is w��ll worth recommending "  This is exactly the kind of testimony  we most appreciate. Test Zam-Buk!  Don't go by heresay! You will find it  gives the best results in all cases of  ecsema, ringworm, festering sores,  piles, cuts, burns, face sores, eruptions  and all skin injuries and diseases.

How few of us there are, who have  not hidden away in some bureau or  closet, some almost forgotten, almost  fided picture-memories of dear on.es  who have passed to the Great Beyond.  . Possibly, too, we have been fearfully  watehiug, as the years go round, tire  steady but relentless fading that promises, ere long, to make these dear treasures but a memory indeed. Why not  perpetuate these old picture-memories  while there is yet an opportunity? A  few years hence even the faintest outlines may have vanished forever.  Modern methods and modern papers  will give you a lasting- copy of such  pictures, and skillful work will preserve  'to you the portraits that you have  almost despaired of and give them to  you in most cases even clearer and  more reminiscently than the faded  copies you now have.  Why not bring these old pictures to  me? I at least will truthfully tell you  whether it is too late to save them.  J. H. JAMES,  City  Studio,   Deadwood  Street.  GREENWOOD,   B.
