Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  Dusky diamonds will be duo- all tlie year 'round and  for many years in the property of the Midway Coal &  Coke company, by the calculation of the operators, it  having-been found that the estate is underlaid with-nine  seams, each of which promises a tonnage that appears to  be almost inexhaustible.  The Midway Coal ct Coke company is the last born of  corporations that have acquired a slice of the carbon belt  marking the British Columbia side of the international  line for twelve miles. Its possessions, comprised of 320  surface acres and 3200 acres in addition on which mineral  rights are held, lie between and near the property of the  Myers Creek Coal & Coke com pan}' and the Boundary  Mining- & Exploration company, scenes of energetic development.  High grade bituminous coal is found in the upper  seams and a semi-anthracite at depth. Free from sulphur  and iron it yields no clinkers. Its coking qualities are described as excellent and the development of a high grade  blacksmith carbon, such as found in Pennsylvania, is anticipated. Having-physical conditions like its better developed neig-hbors, the Midway is expected to become  equally as responsive. It has been examined by R. E.  Raven of London, S. Pickehnann of New York, Archibald  Burnett of the British Columbia Copper company and  Thomas L. Brophy of Spokane, who are reported to have  gathered favorable impressions of its possibilities.  Among those identified with the "company are W. P.  Boettcher, president; A. H. Noyes, secretary; D. H. McLean, treasurer, of Spokane, who. with Fred Keiser of  Wenatchee, are. directors. The company is capitalized  for $1,500,000, shares having- a par value of $1 each.

Having dug oat proof of stoping- ground in a drift  run into ore at a depth of 40 feet, the Freemont mining  company will now proceed to pull out profits from the  70-foot level.  The shoot has a width of six to twelve inches in the  40-foot level, twelve to eighteen inches in the 70-foot  levels, and values that range from $100 to $200 in silver  and lead to the ton. Persistency of the shoot has been  proven to a depth of 205 feet in the shaft, and by short  drifts run out at intermediate depths where the maximum  width is two feet,  Upward of 15 tons of ore has beeri removed in the  course of the investigation, and this, with that to be  drawn from the stope at the 70-foot depth, will comprise  the first car load to be sent to the  smelter in a few days.  Assurance of the profit that will accrue from these  movements has been obtained from the marketing of  neighbors, among them the EJlkhorn, which obtained $50,-  000 in the first year of its shipments, which began at  grass roots, and ten or more others having records of  $30,000 to $750,000 to date.  It is calculated officially that the E}lk Freemont com'  pany may move 30 tons a week, and that the yield per  ton, after freight and treatment charges are deducted,  will be $()0 a ton. J. H. Smith, superintendent of the  mine, says that all is in readiness to begin operations on  the second level. Production can begin within a month.  The property is well equipped with machinery,  THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT  SMILES ON BOXING CONTESTS  came Mrs. Herbert Smith on Jan.  8th in San Fraacisco.  It is believed that Smith has  other wives living in the United  States and Europe. Two ot the  women who admit that they have  been married to Smith have indicated their willingness to become witnesses against him id  the event that he is taken into  custody. Four others have notified the officers that they do not  desire to press a prosecution  against him.  Bert or Herbert Smith was born  in St. Thomas forty yeais'ago of  well-to-do   parents.    His   father  died,   leaving   him   considerable  money.    His   . mother     married  again,    and   still    lives   in  St.  Thomas.    Herbert   Smith     was  well   educated,   and   married    a  wealthy girl in Brantford twenty  years   ago.    He   spent    all   her  money and spoiled her life.    She  left him eight years ago,   when  they  were living in   St.   Louis.  Mo.    She came  to   St. Thomas,  and lives there with ��� hisjmother,  and is known  as Mrs.   Lucy S  Smith.    Herbert or Bert Smith is  a   lecturer   by   occupation,  and  when   last   heard   from   by his  friends was in New Orleans.    After Smith's marriage in Bradttord  he   was  tried for bigamy  before  Judge Hardy, but was acquitted.  Tebecee Paints a Rosy Hue  of the Village by the  Suspension Bridge  Permission to hold boxing contests at Tia Juana, just  across the Mexican border from San Diego, has been given  to Louis Blot, the San  Francisco fight  promoter, according to announcement.    Blot chose  the site to hold finish  contests.    He proposes to  stage five or six of these each  year.    With the   necessary permission   signed and sealed  by the Mexican governor. Blot will be master of  the prize  fight situation for   finished   contests.    He   now  has three  j contests in view,    The  first of these is  a Moran-Wolgast  j match for the lightweight crown.    The other two are between Sam Langford and  Jack Johnson   and Al Kaufman  | and the negro champion.  The City Council.

The first object  which attracts  the eve nf the traveller   as ho approaches the town of Westbridge  is the  bridge, from   which Wi-st-  bridgt-   derives   its   name.    The  residents are  justlv proud of this  colossal   structure   in   wood   and  iron, a   triumph   of  utility   combined with   art;   indeed, in  these  qualities   it   has  been   favorably  compared with the famous Brooklyn bridge ot New York. Visitors  from   that   city   are wont  to declare that if anything they rather  prefer the bridge over tbe   West  Fork to that of  their native city.  Beneath   it   flow   the  turbulent  waters of  the  Kettle river, concerning which it has been justly  said,    "Drink   but  once   of   the  waters of the  Kettle,   and  to  it  you shall always return."    Turning sharp to  the left we ascend  the  hill   approaching the  town,  traversing the road cut from the  side   of   the   mountain   by  that  prince of engineers, Wm. Middle-  ton, and  after five  minutes find  ourselves face  to  face with  the  Hotel   Westbridge.     Canadians  are fond ot boasting���and rightly  ���of the   splendor and magnificence of their hotels.   Some declare that the Queen's oi Toronto is the only hotel; others swear  by the Empress of Victoria. Yes,  my friend,   but   have   you  ever  seen the Hotel Westbridge?   If  not,   you  are  totally unqualified  to judge  as to  the merits of the  case.    It is built  in early colonial  style, of logs, and  when we  sav that the plans were drawn by  that architect  of  architects, Mr.  John McKenzie, who shall  dare  to raise his voice in criticism?  The front of this magnificent  structure faces onta Main street,  while the rear windows command  a magnificent view over the river  and other objects of interest in  the foreground.  On entering the building, the  ear is at once struck by the  strains of music proceeding from  the sitting room. This, indeed,  is one of the features of this hotel. Mr. Alex Hardy, the capable manager of the musical department, is wont to boast thai  from sunrise to sunset the sounds  of music never cease in the hotel.  Can any other hotel in Canada  make the same boast?  Opening off   from  the spacious  reading   room   are    two   rooms  which, in a sense, may be said to  have some  connection  with each  other.    One is the suite of Kiula v  McDonald, the  well   known mad  expert,  which   is reserved   exclusively for him  on   his  periodical  visits to the hotel; the other mom  is the   bar.    But. however   much  one would   wish  it, space forbids  us to harp forever on   the "lories  of  this   veritable   palace, so \  will pass regretfully on  to vish  what is known on the Westbridge  Stock Rxrhangp as "No. 2 Main  Street."  Il is just possible that there exists a few people to whom this  familiar ro^no't'en will mean  nothing. 'I'n such, iheii, we sup-  lily the following particular.-:  Tliis mansion is the combined  residence of Mr. K, II. Smith.  the limber plutocrat, and Mr. .1.  Thompson, ol Hardy, Thompson  & Co., the Timothy lCatou nf  Westbridge. Should the visitor  be fortunate enough to gain tbeen tree to thi* residence, a !��>ur of  inspection 'round the hou-e will  more than repav htm. l'a���ong  on we stand aghast befiie I Iir  Postoffice.  Never need the Liberal parly  in Canada fear for tbe loyalty ol*  Westbridge. The government  would seem to have taken a particular interest in this town, and  as a direct result of tin's have  erected a building vbich. for  superb design, for m Munificence  of structure, and for a certain  reckless prodigality in material,  will stand as a lasting monument  to the greatness aad generosity  of the Liberal government until  the fall of its last rafter. Ke-  luctantly removing our eyes from  this building, we pass on to the  vast emporium of Hardy. Thompson & Co., the Uncle Timothy's  of Westbridge.  It is a   matter  of  remark that,  ever jealous of successful rivals  neither T,  Eaton, nor Simpson  have seen fit to set up a branch  establishment   in   opposition   to  the local firm.    But the fact that  they have not seen fit to do so, is  a lasting   testimony to the popularity of Messrs. Hardv & Thompson, tbeir   fair  dealing  and   fair  prices being one of   tbe boasts ot  the town.    For  the   purpose   of  this guide,   the  author   made an  attempt to   secute   an   interview  with the members of  the   liitn lo  discuss the   trade   prospects   but  met   with    small   success.      Mr.  Thompson    was,    unfortunately,  busy, so a.  conversation   was  attempted   with   Mr. Hardy.    This  gentleman's speech   was so cryptic, interlarded as it   was. by references   to  the   characteristics if  bulls and heifers, that the author  was reluctantly compelled   to believe   that   his   mind   had   been  temporarily unhinged owing lo a  rise in the price of beef.  Emerging   from  the   building,  the nest edifice to compel  our attention is  *'(!.ipeiihagen  House."  Teheckk.  (To be continued, i  Sharks Delay Ships.

Sir Edmund Walker sees no  danger of annexation when the  bank which he controls sweeps  in the savings of the farmers and  uses these in connection with  profitable speculations in the  New York stock market.

Reciprocity bas given the ranters and tau titers another opportunity to wave the old flag for political party purposes. It is the  old game and the old trick, but  it must tail, as it always has, because it is not founded on fact.  Those newspapers opposing reciprocity with the United States,  true to their monopolistic instincts, claim lor their party all  the loyalty and th�� others they  condemn as traitorr, ready to sell  their country lor a trifle. No  right minded citizen or honorable Canadian would accuse his  fellow subjects of disloyalty because they desired freer trade  with their neighbors, loyalty  is not based on dollars and cents,  nor upon any considerations of  free and fair trade in which both  countries give and receive value  for concessions agreed upon and  assented to. Loyalty springs  from the soul, from love of home  and country, and the editor who  accuses others of placing a price  on their loyalty is himself guilty  ..!' that same thing, for it  must be in bis heart or he would  not have uttered it. Like the  Pharisee of old, 'holier than  thou,' so the prating loyalist who  Haunts the flag on ever so slight  pretex���he is not to be trusted  alone near a hen roost on a dark  night.- -Similkameen Star.  The approach of Spring finds many  people with unsightly face sores,  eruptions, boils, etc. In this connection Zam-Buk is invaluable. An  illustration of the way in which it cures  even the most serious and chronic  cases of eruptions, sores and ulcers, is  provided by Mr. R H. Barker, of  Glencairn, Ont.    He says:  "1 never could have believed that  any remedy could cure so quickly and  at the same time so effectively as Zam-  Buk cured me. My face began to be  covered with a kind of rash, which  itched and irritated. This rash then  turned to sores, which discharged  freely and began t o spread- 1 first  tried one thing and then another, but  nothing seemed to do me much good,  and the eruption got worse and worse  until my face was just covered with  running sores.  "Apart from the pain (which was  very bad), my face was such a terrible  sight that 1 was not fit to go out.  This was my state when some one advised me to try Zam-Buk. I got a  supply, and within a week I could see  that the sores were rapidly healing.  A little longer, and Zam-Buk had  healed them completly, and my skin  was clear as if 1 had never had a sore.  We shall never again be without  Zam-Buk in the house."  Zam-Buk is unequalled for Spring  rashes, eruptions, children's sores,  scalp diseases, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses, eczema, tetter, piles, cuts,  bruises, and skin injuries and diseases  generally. All druggists and stores  sell at 50c. a box, or post free from  Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.  Refuse harmful imitations. Zam-Buk  soap, which may be had from any  druggist at 25c. a tablet, should be  used instead of ordinary soap in all  cases  of eruptions and skin diseases.  MAKTEMNCE OF  DESERTED WIVES  Existing Act is Being Made  Stronger in Interest of  Women and Children  THE EAST AND WEST.  For one  reason or another people in the east have  an idea that  the  west  is,   as   :t   whole,   very  much in favor of reciprocity, and  it was with a feeling of pride and  no little astonishment that manufacturers   and   others   read   the  sentiments expressed   by Mr. Pat  Burns, tbe  Calgary   cattle king,  on the subject.    Mr.  Burns, as is  well known, is   probably the biggest man in  many ways the west  has produced.    He is  the owner  of thousands of head of cattle, of  large packing plants  at Calgary  and Vancouver, and  is an extensive trader in sheep, swine, poultry,   butter,   eggs   aud   kindred  products.    He   has   been   called  the Armour  of   Canada,   and  in  western Canada at  least,   where  he   operates something   like   76  distributing   bonnes    and   retail  stores, he deserves the name. Mr.  Burns   sa>s  reciprocity is   "not  dangerous"   to  his   business, but  he goes further and says that, no  matter what its  effect, he  would  be in favor of a pact which would  benefit   the   whole  couutry   and  not of one  which   might bring a  few tempnrarv  dollars  to  a certain class.    Mr. Burns spoke like  a patriot and he has many a follower in tbe west.  The   Canadian   Pacific   which  was one  the  great corporations  that wan  going to  be chewed up |  at both   ends   and   its   business  knocked   endways,   has unkindly  kept on increasing in value. This  the government press is not slow  to point out    As for the annexation talk everyone  knows what a  stew the country was  thrown in  to by Champ Clark's  hot talk at  Washington.   And even yet there  are many who  believe we can reciprocate and still be loyal to the  Empire.   The somewhat ironical motto.  "All this, too, will pass away,"  confronts the office of  a famous  police official in Montreal. It  carries very little comfort to the  criminal who stands on the brink  of a long separation from society  behind the grated windows of a  penitentiarv cell or purchance  stands in the shadow of the gallows, but it spells splendid significance to the man who is compelled to listen while the politicians rag and the partv press  howls one way or the other about  the evils or the benefits which  are sure to follow in tbe footsteps  ot the enactment now on the  boards.  It seems no use trying  to get  away from  it.    Reciprocity dogs  our every  footstep,   stares us in  the face when   we get up iu the  morning and is  the last thing on  our tongues or in our minds when  we go to   bed.    In   fact we  are  lucky if we do not dream  about  it.    The papers   are  full  of  it;  public  bodies are passing  resolutions about it, and  our   friends  pester us to say what   we  think  about it.    Tiresome  as the naval  discussion was, many  would welcome it back if it would rid us of  the present talk, talk, talk.  A bill consolidating and also  amending the acts respecting the  maintenance of wives deserted by  their husbands was introduced by  the attorney general. This is an  enlargement of the Deserted  Wives' Maintenance Act of 1901  A wife is to be deemed as deserted if she is living apart from  her husband because of his r -  peated assaults or other acts of  cruelty, or because of "his refusal or neglect, without sufficient  cause, to supply his wife and infant children (il any) with food,  clothing or oilier necessaries."1  No wife shall be entitled to the  benefit of t,he Act who is possessed, in her own righl, of separate property sufficient for the  maintenance of herself and infant children, or who is proved  to have committed adultery, unless the adultery has been condoned.  When a complaint is made and  the husband summoned a police  magistrate or justice of the peace  may hear the evidence, whether  the man obeys the summons or  not, and if he is satisfied that  there has been desertion within  the meaniug of the Act he may  order the payment of such weekly  [sum, not exceeding 820, as he  may consider to be in accordance  with the means oi the husband  and any means the wife may  have. The husband pays all  costs in any case. "Either paTty  may appeal to the couuty court  judge with this difference, that if  the husband appeals proceedings  on the order appealed from shall  not be stayed pending the appeal  and he shall pay all costs, aud if  the wife is the appellant no security for the cost of the appeal  shall be required.  In case of non-payment of any  sum ordered to be paid, and as  often as any payment is in arrears  the husband may be summoned  to show cause why he should not  be imprisoned for disobeying the  order, and may be sent to jail for  not more than 30 days. It will  be seen that' a recalcitrant husband can thus be kept in confinement practically indefinitely,  which no doubt, would bring him  to time. Garnishee proceedings  against any debtor of the husband is provided for.  While the Act ot 1<)01 is repealed any wife may take proceedings under the new Act for  the enforcement of any order or  for the recovery of any money  under an order made under the  provisions of tbe old Act.

This improvement has occurred notwithstanding the business depression  In the United States, where is  found the greatest single market  lor copper. There is now every  prospect the general business  rill soon be very much better  dere, and that the last half of  J1911 and the year 1912 will constitute a period of great prosperity. In the event of such busi-  iess improvement being realized  fhere will1 be .a tremendous increase in the consumption of copper1 and the price will have a substantial advance, notwithstanding  fche coining increase in production.  -Boston Commercial.  Copper is extremely dull, but  Iprices are being maintained.  [Lake is 12^' to 12 % and electrolytic is liy* to 12>^ cents a pound.  Copper Mountain just east of  [Chesaw, Wash., is promised considerable exploration in the near  [future. Negotiations, have been  proceeding quietly between representatives of the Granby company  [of Phoenix and Grand Forks, B.  |C.,' and the owners of several  [groups of claims on Copper  [Mountain. While no definite information  is  at  hand as  to  the  number of properties' the company is negotiating for, it is  gleamed from well informed  sources that the Rainbow group,  Mutual. No. 9, Copper Queen,  Aztec, Western Star, Ramshorn,  Cariboo, Homestead and Midnight  Fraction are included in the deal  and that agreements for the sale  of most of these properties have  been signed. Machinery for  diamond drilling, opening up and  development will soon be shipped  in and operations begun at an  early date on a large scale.  Nearly all of Copper Mountain  has been,located for years, several  groups have been patented. The  country rock is heavily mineralized and large ore bodies have  been uncovered. Copper Mountain  is contiguous to that part of British Columbia where' the Granby  Company has so successfully operated for years, and its capital  and experience will develop in  this section a mining centre second to none in the state.  The shipments ot blister copper  from the Granby smelter for week  ending Feb. 4th, amounted to  440,000 lbs.,, a record output. The  total output for 1910 was 20,0*8,-  048 lbs, silver 355,997 ounces,  gold 44,130 ounces.

A turn of  the lever instantly changes the draft so the fire is quickened  or checked, at will. Turned on, McClary's Magnet Wood*  Furnace produces the strongest heat in a few minutes; and  the nickelled steel tubes radiate this heat for hours after  the draft is shut off. Because of this stored heat McClary's  Magnet Wood Furnace is economical and a continuous roaring fire is unnecessary. The heat that goes up the smoke pipe  of ordinary wood furnaces, goes into the register pipes of the  Magnet. Like the position of the damper, the Magnet Wood  Furnace is right all through.

The Lone  Star is located about 200 teet on  the southern side of the International boundary line and the new  tramway, which is five and a  half miles in length, will be used  to bring the ore to Boundary  Falls where it will be placed on  board freight cars and shipped to  the smelter at Greenwood. This  will be the second property added  to the shippers of the B. C. Copper company during tbe past 12  months, the other being the Wellington camp. The Napoleon,  which is located near Northport,  Wash., has also commenced to  ship within recent months.  To Keep Out of Coronation.

LeMOINE  Canada's Historian and Litterateur.  At "Spencer Grange," a sunny homestead amidst great trees overhanging  the St. Lawrence, near the quaint old fortress city of Quebec, where every square  foot of ground seems consecrated to historic memories, lives Sir James MacPher-  aon LcMoinc, Canada's genial historian, now working still in the sunshine of optimism,  though in his eighty-first year.  Horn in the city of Quebec, a descendant of one of the old and distinguished  families of Old France, he spent some of his early years under the kindly care of  liis Scotch maternal grandfather at Isle aux Grues. After completing his education at the Scininaire 3e Quebec, he entered the public service as collector of internal  revenue at the age of twenty-two. Three years later he was admitted to the bar  and practised law for a few years, but his heart was not in it. He preferred studying history and birds and writing about them. Surrendering to the spell of the  legendary and historic lore of his native city and its surroundings, he loved to  lireathe new life into the old romances, or to dive into the sea of historic research  and investigation. The range of his work can be best suggested by the comprehensive title "Canadian History, Legend, Scenery and Sport"���a veritable treasure-  house of Canadian lore, written with a fine literary touch, and pulsing with vital  human interest.  The love of birds, -which led him forty-five years ago to write his first contribution to periodical literature on land and sea birds around Quebec for. the " Canadian Naturalist," is a domir^ting note in his life. His splendid collection of  Canadian birds in the museum of his home attests his loyaltv to his feathered  friends, and "Spencer Grange" is the mecca of students of Canadian annals, keenly  alive to the rare privileges it affords them.  His library rooms are filled to overflowing with books, pamphlets, pictures  and literary treasures; but the most interesting shelves are those eontaining the  thirty volumes of his writings, eighteen of which are in English and tvelve in French.  Like'Professor Goldwin Smith, Sir James' printed books represent the smaller part of  his literary product, for he has numberless pamphlets and magazine articles to his  credit that are unfortunately buried in the oblivion of ephemeral periodicals. '  His interest in contemporary matters is as deep and vital as ever; his mind  is keen, alert, sensitive as a barometer to every impression, and he tarries his years  with a grace and ease that laugh at time and its terrors. For many years president of the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, he has also had the highest  literary honor in the Dominion���the presidency of the Royal Society of Canada.  limered acejuliug to Aa ut tli�� Parliament *f Canida, In tne j��*r 1805, Ur W.

The editor of the Revelstoke Herald has the following to say about the  game of curling:  "Curling is about over and they  tell us that next season we will have a  rink of our very own on which to  curl as much as we like. To tell the  truth the editor don't know much  about the game. He not into the  game this season a little bit, but in  view of the number of young curlers  who will be sprouting during the summer to bloom next winter, we are  willing to tell all we know of the  game. As we said before, we don't  know much by experience, but we  read a lot, so here goes:  "Curling is a wonderful game. It  is played by eight men, four on a side.  The sporting goods required are a  broom to each player, a pair of rocks,  a Tam-o'Shunter, a tape measure and  a bottle of Scotch. It is recommend-  by doctors for expanding the chest  and the head. It is called the 'roar-  in' game because some of the players  roar so much when they are getting  the worst of it. The game was invented in Scotland when kilts were in  Wash., several weeks ago, plead-1 their infancy.  ed guilty to horse stealing    when]     "The captain of each side is called  arranged    be for I    Judge    K.

The player sweeps off  the bottom of his stone, carefully balances himself with his broom out on  one side, slides the rock forward with  a preliminary false start to get the direction and loosens up his joints,  draws back and lets her go.  The stone goes booming down  the ice and the skip yells, 'Sweep!'  Two men proceed to brush their  brooms across the ice in front of the  stone. This creates a vacuum into  which the stone (lows as naturally as  water rises ' in a svphone, stopping  about 14 feet and umpity-ump inches  from the place where the skip wanted  it. 'Well played, sir!' says the skip,  with enthuriasm. Under his breath  he complains softly, but sincerely  about rhe luck he has in securing  dubs.  'This sort of thing goes on for  two hours. Occasionally they stop  playing to count'the number of rocks  that are lying within the rings. Here  is where the game, like cribbagc, depends upon the counting. The man  who can count the most rocks without getting bawled out goes and'pegs  up on the cribbage board on the wall.  "A bonspiel is a curling potlach.  It lasts about as long as a camp meeting, and simmers and boils alternately.  A bonspiel, like the fire wagon, takes  precedence of all other business. Bonspiel is a compound word, bon being  short for 'bonne,' meaning in French  a servant of an old maid, and spiel  beine, a colloquial chunk of slang,  meaning a vocal eruption issuing from  the main gash in the face^ Hence  bonspiel bonne'spiel, or a lot of cackling by a bunch of old maids. This  interpretation is substantiated by such  spinster terms as 'Draw the Tea,'  'Get the Broom,' and 'Let Her  Curl.'  "in the   meantime, 'Has Anybody  Here Seen Kelly?'

George Cunningham for many  years has retired from the position of  of mining recorder and will take up  his residence at the coast. We trust  that many years be allowed, him to  fully enjoy a well earned holiday.  He will be much missed here among  his old cronies.  Thursday, April 20, is the date  which has been decided upon for the  entertainment to be given under the  auspices of the Junior Woman's Auxiliary off St. Jude's church. Details  of the programme will be given later.  The first rehearsal will be held on  Saturday, March 4th at .4 p. m., at  the residence of Mrs.   Robert Wood.  'Fhe death of Thomas Hawkins in  77th year at Rock Creek on Feb. 1.4,  takes from us another of our great west  developers and an old veteran most  highly thought of. His death followed an attack of la grippe which developed into pneumonia. The funeral took place at Rock Creek on  Sunday last.  The members and Guild of St.  Jude's church wish to thank the  gentleman from the Mother Lode and  smelter who rendered such delightful  musical selections at the social in  Wood's Hall on 'Tuesday. The  solos, duets, quartettes and recitations  were charming and very much appreciated by all who were fortunate  enough to be present.  We had the pleasure of making the  acquaintance of Hugh Murray who is  making a leisurely visit to   town,   and  terior what is by his energy optimistism.  He has been a resident of. Midway  and Boundary city for the past 35  years. He looks hale and hearty and  good for a hard pull yet.  The curling match between the  Mother Lode team and Phoenix team  took place at the Royal rink on the  first of the week. Mr. Hibbert skipped both rinks for Mother Lode, with  O. B. Smith and Mr. Morrin doing  their best for Phoenix. The good  fortune which has been the lot of  Phoenix this season in the ice games  was in evidence in 'this game and  Phoenix came off victors.  Archie Gillis has taken over the  Midway and Greenwood stage line,  and will manage it in the future. L.  L. Matthews will continue as local  agent and will give strict attention to  all orders and calls, etc,, for the line.  Credit is due Mac for his good wdrl<  while handling the ribbons always ;on'  time, courteous and free from acci  dents.     A good record.  Fhe St. Jude church social on  Tuesday evening was a very enjoyable  and successful affair. Quite a nuin-.  ber were present who enjoyed the  games and other divertisements. 'The  singing of the Cornish club was the  trump card of the evening and they  acquitted themselves in a manner most  agreeable to . the audience. They  did beautifully, their singing was most  enjoyable.  Would it not be the right and  proper act for the hockey boys of  Greenwood and others whom it benefited very much to tender to Mr.  Watson of the Star Theatre, a bene-  night as an expression of appreciation  for his kindness in closing his performances on every night this season on  which his performance msy detract  from attendance at rink, in consequence he is out of pocket. So boys-  make a grand rally and give him a  bumper house, it is coming to him.  Our Girls Are True Blue.  The Victoria Colonist has this  to say in defence of the Canadian  girls:  "Somebody has visited Canada  and has been writing to the English papers that Canadian girls  have no modesty or true femininity, or anything in fact that is  likeable; on the contrary, are a  set of brazen hoydens or something of that kind. He has probably seen some young- Canadian  girl look fearlessly into the eyes  of some Canadian boy, neather  fearing nqr imagining evil, and  he has. come to the conclusion  that her fearlessness, which is  the fruit of her true modesty and  splendid-self-respect, is. only the  effrontery of a person devoid of  personal shame. Bashfuluess is  not modesty necessarily; nor is it  self-confidence a sign of immodesty."
