Tiie south half of the hill east of  town is getting .into shape for a winter's campaign that will put an entirely  new face on the mining situation there.  In the past few months things north of  the Twin creek gulch have been getting  on famously, but from plans now being  matured it looks as if the south half,  too, would be very active the coming  winter. On Monday last the writer  took a tour of the hill, visiting the E  P. U., Skylark, Bay, Mavis and Dynamo, on all of which properties activity  is manifesting itself.  THE E. P. U.  The syndicate that recently bonded  the E. P. U. has decided on a compre"  hensive plan of development' and. has  begun work in sympathy therewith.  About a half mile east of the city hall,  on the south side of Twin creek and  well down in the gulch, they have be  gun a tunnel that, when completed,will  be 700 feet long, at that distance reaching a point under the old shaft. They  aim to reach a depth of '300 feet below  this shaft, and as it is 200 feet deep  their maximum depth at the crest of  the hill will be about 500 feet. They  are now employing two shifts and are  making about two and a half feet a  day. The tunnel is now in 70 feet and  already one small stringer-' of pre has  been cut. The expectation is that  several known veins on the property  will be cut by the tunnel. Over 600  tons of high grade ore was taken from  the E. P. U. on the upper levels, and if  the syndicate's scheme of development  is carried out a large tonnage of rich  ore ought to be obtained in the 300 feet  between the bottom of the old workings and the new tunnel". Alderman  Bunting is at the head of the syndicate  and among his associates are some of  the most practical mining* men of tlie  camp.  THE-  SKYLARK.  At the Skylark Superintendent Rowe  has a force of about 20 men at work.  Some time ago the old shaft was abandoned and a new one sunk something  over 200 feet. The shaft is double  cewpar t men 'ir^n-nl^is���ar^ line���piece =of=  work. From the foot of this shaft a  crosscut was run 30 feet to the ledge,  on which drifting is now in progress.  One car of ore has just been shipped  aud two more cars are ready for ship  ment. So soon as a little more 'development is done the force will be increased.  The Skylark has provided the means  for its pay roll as well as made the  payments on capital account as they  have matured. . The company has  money in the treasury to meet the last  payment ou the purchase price, not  due for some mynths yet. Kecentlv a  new vein was r'ii-covereu on the property. This lead has been opener! up for  a short distance and so syon as other  more pressing work is out' of the way  o. small force will be put to woi k open  im.; up the new discovery.  Everything about the Skylark is in  fine physic U condition. Order' and  system are evident everywhere A  good, steam heated wash1 room, pro ���  vided with hot and cold water, has been  provided.  The Skylark has sv ipped  about 1.100  tons of ore in  the last   two   years, and  the indications ;:re that it ha-,   just be-  gu -.!.  THI' BAY..'

Among other thins the council o'e-  cided to purchr.se lots in block M,  Sutherland's addition, from Robert  Wood & Co., to obtain gravel for tide  on the city streets. It was agreed to  pay $200 for the lots and all taxes to  date.  \V. G. McMynn wrote asking to be  reimbursed for improvements he had  made to Long Lake street. During  the past summer Mr McMynn did considerable grading on hislot, depositing  the earth on Long Lake street, where  it was badly needed. The council  voted $25 to Mr. McMynn for his work.  Mr. Steel, chairman of the Educational committee of the Miners' union,  wrote the.council-asking for a continuation of the $15 per month donation to  the Miners' Union reading room. Some  months ago the council transferred the  donation from the : old .Greenwood  street reading' room to the Miners'  Union reading room, on the understanding that new arrangemonts would  be entered into after the month of September. The matter was refei red to  Alderman Bunting, who will report at  the next council meeting.  LETTER OF THANKS. ":  The   following   letter was   received  from  Professor C.   H. McLeod, secretary of the Canadian Society   of Civil  Engineers:  His Worship, tlie Mayor of Greenwood:  Dhak Sik���I trust that you will pardon the extreme delay which has oc  curred iu acknowledging the hospitality of yourself and the citizens of  Greenwood to the members-. of this  society and their friends, -who visited  Greenwood on September 22nd. The  opportunity of seeing the .mining development, and the smelting industry  was very much appreciated,-and our  visit was in every respect most enjoyable. Will you kindly convev our  sincere thanks to your associates in  the council, and especially to Mr.  Gaunce.    W ith kindest regards,  Yours very truly,  C. H. McLkod, Sec.

The Bay has shipped about 100 tons  of ore, some, of it phenomenally rich,  and all of it running high, ("old value.-;  predornidate.  THE mavis.  Adjoining the Bay on the west, a..d  with its workings about 500 feet from  those of the Bay, is tlie Mavis, recently  bonded by Mr. Eckerf of Spokane. A  substantial cabin lias beeu erected on  the property and things generally  shaped up for winter.  The old shaft was down about 50 feet  but at the bottom was out of ore. Mr.  lSckert, after studying the situation  carefully, decided he coukl pick up the  ledge with little climcultv. At a point  in the shrift about 35 feet: below the  collar he started a crosscut running  northwesterly. At a point about ten  feet in they encountered the lead, which  is remarkably strong, but apparently  not very high grade, although some  free gold and galena, show in the  quartz, which is particularly attractive.  The Mavis lead is believed to be identical with the Bay, and should this  prove true the property will be a winner.  THE DYNAMO.  Farther south an:l west, and well  down toward the Anaconda road, we  find the Dynamo. Both power lines  cross the pioperty. The Dynamo is  beautifully located in open country  overlooking the valley. On a particularly attractive spot on the claim the  owners are building a substantia,!  dwelling of seven rooms and bath. A  good spring on the hillside, 500 feet  away, will supply excellent water,  which will be -piped into the house.  About 260 feet of tunnel work has  been done on the Dynamo and several  small leads have been cut, but fie main  body has hot yet been reached. The  owners, Portmann Brothers, have set  aside 512,000 for further development  work. When that is gone they believe  they will know either that they have a  mine or that they will have reached a  good place to quit. The enterprise of  the owners deserves and doubtless will  meet with success. ��� j  One feature in connection with this  entire hill should not.be overlooked.  In addition to good timber and water,  and easy access to the railway for their  ores over a good road from town,  abundant cheap power can be easily  obtained. In addition to the Greenwood  power line, both of the long distance  lines, that from Cascade and that from  Bonnington falls, cross the. hill, and  only a short distance from any of these  properties referred to.   -  It requires no great stretch of the  imagination to believe that at no distant day electric power will lie doing  duty on all these and other properties  as well, on this wonderfully rich and  beautiful hillside.  EVERY HOME NEEDS ZAM-BUK  Experiences of   Housekeepers   Who  Keep it Handy.  In every home cuts, bruises, scalds utid similar injuries are sure to occur, especially where  there are ciiiUren. In most homes, too, chapped hands. chilSialiss, eczeiu.:. ringworm, ulcers  'and other blcin diseases occu;.  Fcr these you need a calm which is liin'c,  herbal, free from mineral compos-nd. free from  animal fat. antiseptic, able to stop bleeding and  which should heal.  Zam-Buk meets all these requirements. Why  ' not prove its merits?   Head this:  Mi's.

Mrs. I/izzie Gilmutii'. of Kingston,  says: "{ had an ulcerated leg, which  became so bad t'ua<- I could not wear a  boot. The foot mid ankle were swollen  to nearly double their ordinary .size,'  and the pain was terrible. The ulcers  spread in a ring all round the limb.  Doctor's treatment brought no relief,  and alone time it was thought only  amputation could end the agony 1 suffered. JJain-Buk was brought t<. my  notice, and I bought a few boxes. Kach  box gave me more ease and headed tlie  ulcers. Today I am quite cured, the  limb is sound, and whereas before I  could not.stand, now I can go upand  down steps with ease. 1 owe it all to  Zam-Buk."  Zam Bnk also cures eczema, cold  sores, ringworm, stiff joints, bad leg,  sore nipples, boils, abscesses, blood  poison, poisoned wounds, etc..

INJURED AT PHOENIX  Mine Employee Suffers from His Own  '-���     Carelessness.       .    ������ ������  James Peacock, a mucker boss at tbe  Granby .mines, Phoenix, met with a  dangerous accident last Thursday. He  went down in the cage in No. 2 shaft  and neglected to close the. safety gates  after him. When the cage had descended 200 feet, a top man, Campbell,  came along with an empty car, and the  gate being open, the car went clown  the shaft on top of the cage, and Campbell narrowly escaped   falling  after it.  When the heavy car struck the cage  the draw bar pulled out and both shot  down to the 300 foot level. Peacock  was thrown on his back, and when  taken out it was found he had sustained  several fractrred ribs and injuries to  his lungs, as well as other internal  injuries. He was removed to the bos  pital in a precarious condition.  ROCK CREEK RIPPLES  Is  unexcelled, as  is  evidenced  by   its  its popularity in all the towns  of the Boundary.

RUNAWAY  "^^Lbout^Ll^o-clock'^Sundaj-^e veiling last, oue of Crppley's livery  teams in charge of Neil McEach-  ran, took a lively spin around  town after dumping the driver  out. The team started at Burns  & Co.'s corner, went west to Gold  street, south to Wellington, east  to Silver, north to Louisa, east  to Church, south to Deadwood,  west to the Canadian Pacific railway, north' along the railway to  the Yale-Columbia yards, and  thence east over the dump.  Strange to say, neither horse was  injured, and the buggy, which  was a covered one, escaped much  better than could possibly be expected.  In Time of Peace.  In the first months of the Russia-  Japan war we had a striking example  of the necessity for preparation and  the early advantage of th se who, so to  speak, ''have shingled their roofs in  dry weather."

W  ��  ./I  - ?(=a��**j  'Ft I  Agent for the  Boundary District.  lib:  PAY ORE COLUMN  The Elkhorn management is  once again in high feather. The  company recently decided not to  wait until the crosscut reached  the ledge to recoup a bank account that bus been heavily  drawn upou, and so set to work-  to look for one of the Elkhorn's  ore shoots that they felt was ou  tap. A short winze turned the  trick and the first of the week  found them in command of a  shoot of very rich ore, encountered on Sunday last. ��� Shipping  will be resumed at an early date,  development meantime going forward to secure the lead on the-  lowest level.  The Emma is developing into  one. of the great mines of the  Boundary. The lead is now over  40 feet wide and the vein declared  to be a true fissure. Recent prospecting shows the ore body to  run across the Jumbo and Minnie  Moore. The B. C. Copper Co.  has now in these three claims and  the Denoro, lying south of the  Emma, a north and south body ef  ore a mile long.  The B.C. Copper Co. got its  second big furnace in commission  on Wednesday morning last. It  was planned to turn the blast on  nearly a week earlier, but unavoidable delay arose.

' 2 00  .... 1 2*  . .. 2 SO  <UNIO nTJM'Ti-abel**-  "^SnaS*  FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26, ITO6  The Frisco people, recently  the recipients of a world's generosity in an hour of terrible ca-  4amityrhave-reccvered-sufficiently-  to be treating- their resident Japs  with great inconsideration, even  denying their public schools to  the little brown boys and girls.  Tbe Frisco people were talking  loudly not long ago about "four-  bit" insurance companies. "Four-  bit" citizenship is a poorer asset  for a community than compromising insurance companies. The  trouble may lead to national interference, if not international  inquiry.  If J. J. Hill doesn't look out  he;will find here an illustration of  the Scripture sentence, "While  thy servant was busy here and  there, he was gone." The Boundary Creek and Greenwood district  have been calling lustily to Hill  to hurry his railroad here. There  was a time when he could have  had anything he wanted, but we  believe the sense of a great want  is lessening. He has scorned  Greenwood so long while he has  been busy elsewhere that we may  duly come to think the C. P. R.  is all right.  The trail of the tin can marks  man's march in the west. You  may find it singly by the mountain spring, or some remote camping spot; may find it in dozens by  the prospector's cabin in the  mountains; may nind it in carload lots behind the mine boarding house or the village hotel.  Some day the Kootenay and the  Boundary country will raise' its  own fruit and then the farmers  of the east won't find British  Columbia the snap it is now.  In Seattle public spirited men  are making the city donations of  land for parking purposes, some  of the lands given being worth  large sums of money. If citizens  of Seattle, where land is increasing so fast in value can afford  this, why might not some of the  land-poor of the small towns of  the country emulate them?  There are blocks in Greenwood  that will be vacant years hence,  and tax-bearing meantime that  would make beautiful breathing  spots for the town.  The Socialists and the Labor  party straight had a mix up in  convention in Vancouver a few  days ago, and now we are to have  two political parties where there  was one.  ( If. the people cf Greenwood  | would invest about five thousand  , dollars^' in well applied paint it  ' would improve the town's appear-  ! ance at least one hundred thou-  ' sand dollars.  In regard to the Hindu invasion a delicate matter is likely to  arise���the right of a British citizen in one part of the empire to  seek his livelihood in another  part of the empire. Much blood  and treasure were spent to add  India to the empire. Did the adding of India to the empire, thus  opening up that great region to  British everywhere, open ��� up the  rest of the empire to the people  of India? ���   ��� , . -  j Say, did you read the address  | of the attorney for Countess Cas-  jtellaine in the recent divorce  ;case? Well, wasn't Count Boui  ' the limit?  Gn each day in the year there is an  average of 21 aliens debarred from  entering the port of New York.  Ex-Senator Burton is taking  life easy in Iron ton. ; H is ��� graduation from1 senate to state's prison  was easy and graceful. He went  when he got good and ready, in  the most comfortable way possible via the pass .route, and now  there he lives not on prison fare,  but on the luxury of -home cook-  cooking provided by his wife.  The greater the:'mah the greater  his crime, doesn't seem  to apply.  The Hindu question has not  yet caused us any uneasiness locally. Nor is it likely to, because  the Hindus are not the class of  men fitted to compete with the  sturdy manhood demanded in  mines and smelters. They may  be all right to pile slabs or pick  berries, hut Greenwood is not in  the sawdust or the strawberry  belt at present.  Railroads running-within.three miles  of a county seat in Oklahoma must  build a line through the county seat  and establish a station.  By an imperial Russian decree about  20,000,000 acres of land iii Siberia are  to be sold ro the peasants. Count Vor-  ontzoff has offered his estate, nr-ar  Parlograd, about 80,000 ;'-icres, for sale  to the peasants.  The evidences of improved  conditions are all about us. Families have come into town until  dwellings cannot be .obtained,  even at a slightly advancing rate,  store buildings long closed are  being taken. The stores are doing a good business. ��� The hotels  are filled, labor is difficult to obtain and the mines are operating-  to profitable ends.  In Time of Peace.  In the first mouths of the Russia-  Japan war we Had a striking example  of the necessity fur preparation and  the early advantage of th^.se who, so to  speak, "have shingled their roofs iu  dry weather." The virtue of preparation has made history and given us our  greatest men. The individual as well  as the nation should be prepared for  any emergency. Are you prepared to  successfully combat the first cold you  take? A cold can be cured much ..more  quickly when treated as soon as it h'��s  been contracted and before it has be  come settled in the system. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is famous for its  cures of colds and it should be kept at  hand ready for instant use. For sale  by all druggists.

Hunter has  returned after a  three weeks'  visit to  his old Dakota  home.   We are glad to see the man  ag-er of the "Big- Store"   back  looking  so well.  There is considerable inquiry for real  estate. ^The^firm^of^Gaunce^&jWick^,  wire reports the sale of seven  lots and  two houses in the last thirty days, bur  at prices that are at a sacrifice.  Don't forget the lecture next Thurs  day evening in the Presbyterian  church. This lecture was given in  Greenwood several years ago - nd is  being repeated by request, and for the  benefit of the church. '  Robert Wood, just in from Beaver  dell, reports everything moving along  smoothly at the Sally, and good progress being made on getting out another  car of iirst-clasf ore. The ore body  has not yet been reached in the new  crosscut, but rapid progress is being  made toward the point where it is  looked for.  Late adviies from Fernie indicate  that the parties at variance over the  fuel question there appear to be getting  together. It looks as il' the difficulties  would all be smoothed out in a few  days at latest, and work resumed. The  question naturally arises thai if, after  several weeks of sulking, occasioning  great anxiety and even expense to fuel  users everywhere, the parties can get  together, why might this have not been  realized at tho outset and much loss  and bad feeling saved?  Copper sheets are first hot rolled from  a copper cake. The cake is cast in an  open mold and is left as it comes from  it. The top side of the cake is rough  and usually full of., minute blow holes.  Dross or other imperfections are always  found on this side. Iu this condition  the copper is hot rolled, tinned and  then cold rolled if required. Any blow  hole, piece or scale, or p.i rticle of'dross,  becomes elongated in the roll.

The place will be  attractive when completed.  Dick Hodgins, for a long time  with Russell-Law-Caulfield, has  returned to Greenwood and is in  the employ of Geo. H. Cropley.  We are glad to note that E. W..  Bishop is able to again be around  town. He had a severe time of  it but is now recovering rapidly.  Tom Skeffing'toti, an old timer of  Wellington camp, and familiarly  known as."Alfalfa Tom," is now  located at Goldfields, Nevada.

Radcliff  is an experienced caterer and will  no doubt enjoy a good patronage.  The Kettle river has risen  wonderfully in the last week and  fording the river at Midway has  become dangerous. Unavoidable  delay in receipt of timbers for  the new bridge has caused considerable inconvenience to travel  Mr. and Mrs. David Banner-  man, who have been residents of  Greenwood for seven or eight  years, left for the, coast the early  part of the week.* We regret the  removal from town of  men like Mr. Bannerman  energetic  Dr. Simmons, dentist, Wallace-  Miller block.

A large number of people enjoyed the ball given in the Reliance block on Wednesday evening  last, under the auspices of the  local lodge of Odd Fellows. Supper was served by the ladies of  the guild in connection with St.  Jude's church. "Delightful". is  the adjective being generally used  by those there.  Spencer Banerman came down  from the West Fork on Tuesday  and is spending the week in the  city. Mr. Banerman has been  working all summer on his properties and lias just finished two  assessments each on the Headlight, Clatama and Arlington  claims on Wallace mountain. On  the Clatama an exceptionally fine  body of copper ore was opened  up and assays give 7 per cent  copper, and good values in gold  and silver.  The telephone company is to  be commended for the great improvements made in its district  service. Although we cannot admire the aTray of poles, except  from the standpoint of their fine  quality, we do admire the company's intention to prevent their  defacement by having bills pasted  on them. And now if the company will clean up the loose rocks  and rubbish around the foot of  their poles before winter all will  be well.  Duncan Ross, Esq., M. P., returned on Friday afternoon from  a fortnight's trip through the  western part of his constituency, visiting Vernon, Kelowna,  Peachland, Summerland, Lumby,  Armstrong, Enderby, Penticton  and other- points in the Okanagan. He was accompanied on  the trip by J. A. McDonald,. Esq.,  leader of the opposition in the  Provincial legislature. The gentlemen were banqueted ' by the  Vernon Liberals on Tuesday evening.  SCHOOL REPORT  The Midway Irrigation Ditch  company has completed the big  irrigatingditch-and are-sabdivid-  ing their land prior to placing  the same on the market in a very  short time.

He came down  from Phoenix, where he owns one  of the largest mercantile stores in  that city. Mr. Hunter devotes  the larger portion of his time to  mining; in the Slocan.  Aimer Collier, an old miner of  the West Fork, came in from  Spokane on Tuesday, where he  been taking a look at the outside  world for three weeks. Mr. Collier went back up to Beaverdell.  where he is preparing to work  the Cranbrook claim this winter.  Following is the report of the public  school for the month of October:  Division I.���J. Iy.

Williams and  Julius Ehrlich have acquired the Carmi  mine, on the West Fork, of E. H.  Thruston, Esq., under a lease and  bond.  The Carmi is admitedly a mine and  is in good condition to keep the 10-  stamp mill on the property steadily at  work.  The price of the property has not  been made public.  MIDWAY ft VERNON  A very encouraging report in connection with the Midway & Vernon  appears in the Canadian, of Nelson,  sent out from-Grand Forks. We have  been at some pains to verify the report  but so far have been unable to. Of  course a certain amount of sec*ecy  must naturally atcach to all transactions of so important a character, and  as the promoters reside in Greenwood,  this may be the last place in which to  get the information, but we feel quite  certain that the deal is not yet consummated. What may transpire in  the next week or ten days it is impossible to say, but we trust that the story  that comes from our neighboring- town  may be essentially true. Meantime  the Greenwood interests represented on  the West Fork may take what encouragement they are able to out of the  published statement and await its confirmation later.  MANY BANKERS ARRESTED  St. Louis, Oct. 26.���The annualie-  port of Secretary James R.

But the two largest projects so far  actively assisted by the Grand Trunk  Pacific people are the establishment of  a large pressed brick manufacturing  plant and th * starting up of a fishery  and curing outfit on Prince of Wales  island. Iu the first of these, the railway company has guaranteed, it is  said, an investment of $300,000. The  financing of the fishery busine��s is to  be carried o..t withiu the next three  weeks. ^   The amount of coal used iti the manufacture of coke in 1905 was 49,530.677  short tons, valued at $50,614,674.    The  value of the coke produced  from this  coal  was $72,476,1%,  making a difference of $21,761,522 aa representing the  profits on   the coking operations, less  the co:t of manufacture and the expense  of administration and selling.  In 1904 the value of the , coal   used was  $37,133,832, and the value of  the  coke  j produced was $46,026,183,  a difference  ! to  cover   all   expenses and profits of  1 $3,892,351.  FOR SALE.

We  recall in  this connection   the  use  of an  armed  guard at the  ore   houses   and over the  shipments of low grade ore  made by a  company that was in dire need of funds  with   which Le continue   some exceedingly   promising'   development   work.  The ruse worked nicely   and gave publicity   to   the   stock  of  the   cowipauy,  which  subsequently  sold  rapidly  and  gave   the   money    needed.     With   the  declaration  of dividends  from  money  received from the sale of stock  we are  familiar, and doubtless all  agreed that  such   rascality   should   be prosecuted  vigorously.    Not  less reprehensible is  the practice of a company operating in  one' of the boom districts  of Nevada  We have the information  at first hand  from a responsible engineer that barren  rock  is  being   sacked   and ostensibly  shipped  from   the camp by this  company,   stock   in   which  is  at  present  worthless. Photographs of sacks of ore  piled on the dump and  loaded on wagons are being used to attract  attention  tolhis   proposition which,   we are- informed,   is  practically without   merit.  The   procedure   simulates to  a   nicety  that of honest companies making genuine shipments, and, like all frauds, is  designed to  play  on the  gullibility of  the public.    EiKe most   frauds, also,'it  probably   will  survive  for a time, and  those who  are deceived   thereby   will  probably     "take"    their      medicine,"  though, as we  have stated  elsewhere,  there is ample recourse at-law.  mmmuL  �������-itimmwtnn ir h'iti���ni\uuuiitnt immtrtu*irijusnu��tmw��ne."-mufenimwi'-r.ffu��w��  iiumi' -n:; ta*M****' :v."* **' tv*vn> ����� ir- nauuHiri.-nwuiM i7i'n'>uxe^*iiDri.uiii*^-rwi*Tba)r^t��>rntrutiiti  tth.���  O���  Copper: Street;  ��#  nnX*  )0':  ��  '^>.'"^-.^*V*.*''%i'.<--\j1^*Ar-*v'V-^  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.  ���" -   N'AMB OF COMPANY.

Assays are not commonly made at  the gold mines of the southern Appalachians. As a general rule the value  of the ore is measured only by the recovery on the plates and by chlorina-  tion. As the ores from several pre  bodies are genera'ly run through the  mill promiscuously, it is difficult to  determine the value of any one lot.  When it is found that the, returns are  running below the profit line, steps are  taken to determine which particular  ore,: body is responsible for the-decreased values, and no more ore is  shipped from that point for a time. The  system appears almost incredible to  Western operators, who make daily  assays of their faces of ore, in order  to know just what they are taking out.  THE STOCK MARKET,  MINERAL, ACT.

In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part, Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happen/  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings, Arnon*? its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business ���  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments, In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor.

THE WEALTH OF ALASKA  The Great Mineral Storehouse oi North  America.  What the interim' of Africa was to  Europe as an unknown and explorative  land, that'Alaska ami the Yukon is it.  Canada and the Unitirl Kt.ites. Must  of 'ho other states of North America  are so well known that little new is  expected of them. Even Mexico, a  coming mining country, is but a resurrection of an old and lon-r-known  country and ancient civilization. But  Alaska has all the charm of. novelty,  all the interest of exploration and that  peculiar interest which attaches to Ihe  gradual development, progress aud  building up of a pioneer slate or lei'ii-  tory.  Geolog-ically am topographically  there is no other part of America like  it. Glance for a moment at that extra  ordinally-fShaped region, with its wonderful ragg-ed coast line, relics of a  once much more extended continent, a  region torn to tatters on the edges by  glaciers and glacial action producing a  coast line by its fjords aud old glacial  islet extensions comparable to and resembling the northern coast of the  Scandinavian peninsula but Far sur  pasc.ing it in wildness of outline. It  is a region, too, in its upper extension.  where the extreme of tire and water  meet, where there are glaciers and ice  sheets on one hand, and on the other,  like the Antarctic region with ��� its  Erebus and Terror, there are living,  active volcanoes, and more than that,  new ones lately formed and others  likely to form [and burst forth at any  moment:.  Then consider the wonderful dicov-  eries of mineral wealth, such as those  of the Nome and other excitements,  and gradually as researches are being  extended, Alaska appears to be a treasure-house containing within its boundaries representatives of so, many of  those minerals, so much desired elsewhere but - so rarely found, such as  platinum, tin and other unusual and  valuable ores.. Coal, too, even anthracite, so much wanted notoniy in Alaska  itself, but all down the notoriously  coalless Pacific coast, is found here.  There are good signs of oil, too; in  fact, what known mineral product is  there that Alaska has not got, or that  may hot yet be discovered?  The miner-sl discoveries are very like  those of the Rocky mountains generally. At first it is placer gold; then  placer gold is traced to its source in the  rocks, and gold mines on vein leads  are established; silver and .lead mines  follow. All attention1 is at first concentrated on these valuable metals, and  later, and very gradually, as the < oun-  try bi ilds up, it is turned to such products as coal, building stone, clays, etc.  These one by one are discovered and  fiall in line, and not improbably the  time will come when there will be a  search for the rarer miner lis, such as  uranium andothers, and as in Colorado  the demand for any rare mineral has  been promptly followed by its discovery and supply, so there is no knowing  =;-what=Alaska=may-br-iiig=forth-or-,when.  she may astonish the world. It is a  new country of almost unlimited possibilities. - Mining Reporter.  THE MERCHANT'S CORNER  A Police Officer's Evidence  INDIGESTION AND CONSTIPATION CURED  Mr. Alexander Gordon, a retired Police Sergeant.  of Merry Street, Motherwell, says:���" Up to two or  three years ago I enjoyed excellent health. Then iny  bowels became disordered and I suffered most fearful  pain. Indi' estion also attacked me and eating became  very unpleasant on account of the nauseous after-effects  and bad taste in the mouth. I also suffered from  weakness and terrible pains in the back.  I was very ill when Bileans were brought to my  notice. I decided to give them a trial. Obtaining u  supply, I was delighted to find that soon after commencing the course I obtained relief. I persevered,  with the result that the constipation and back pains  were overcome, arid the indigestion dissappeareil.  I am now as healthy as ever and can eat my food with  relish."    CHANGE   OF   .SEASON  AILMENTS'.  LL modern science goes to prove  that herbal medicines are  vastly superior to those containing mineral ingredients. The herbs of the field and the trees of the  forest constitute nature's "medicine chest;" and the highest benefit which  science can confer on man is the discovery of nature's medicinal balms  and essences, and their preparation in form suitable for use by the people.  Bileans for Biliousness���the great Australian cure for indigestion, headache, debility, liver trouble, etc.���are purely vegetable. They are entirely  different and superior to ordinary liver and stomach medicines. It is well  known that liver medicines hitherto in use mostly contain bismuth, mercury,  and other harmful mineral products, and rely upon these ingredients for  their temporary effects. These mineral constituents are very injurious if taken  for long, and produce such effects as that of loosening the teeth, causing the  hair to fall out, etc. Bileans-are entirely superior. They are compounded from  extracts and juices of the finest known medicinal plants. In taking them there  is no fear whatever of any harmful secondary effects. They cure that which  they are taken to cure, and do not leave behind them evils worse than the  original ones. They do not merely purge and weaken, like the old-fashioned  medicines, or do the work which the liver and stomach should do. They ton��t  up and enable these organs to fulfil their proper functions, so that when a cure  is effected and Bileans are left off, the organs remain strong and healthy. Users  of Bileans need therefore never fear their use will lead to the contracting  of the terrible''pill-taking" habit  m  At this time o" the year the body needs toning up to mem  the demands that will be made upon it by the coniintr  winter. Signs ol: this need are headache spells, a wealth  "run down" feeling, biliousness,indigestion, etc. A short  course of Bileans will Intro the elt'cct of toning iip an  bracing up the whole system.

It  s just as essential to the clerk in the  store. Punctuality must become a part  of his very life He can never become  a, necessity to Ins employer unless he is  in season and out of season. Neither  employcr nor customer can rely on him  unless "Ou Time" is his 'motto.  Another way to make himself valuable  is,. to be truly polite, to customers.  Manners cer'.ainiy make the clerk.  Civility is the clerk's capital.  The more civil he is, the more g-oods  he will sell, No customer likes to  trade with a clerk whoisco'd and gruff  and rude, no matter what bargains he  may be offering-Unit they v. ill go again  and again to the store to be served by  the clerk who is civil and courteous.  Such clerks never fail to secure the  general g-ood will, the hearty support  and patronage of all with whom ��� they  come in contact.  &-9.  ���.���=*-"--  Some Hints on How to Be a Good  Salesman-  Ou entering tlie service of au employer, it is the duty of every clerk to  ask himself the question. "What  methods can I employ to make myself  most valuable to my employer in his  efforts to increase his profits?" First,  I should say, exercise common sense,  for common sense in the salesroom, as  elsewhere,.is simply the ability to &ee  the relation of thing's, and to make  every condition, tidver.se or otherwise,  its servant. Next, a good clerk, must  learn to adapt himself to his surround  inijs. to various people, to the changing-  moods of the same people aud to the  different situations and circumstances  with which he comes in contact.  ���As the nature of trade changes., as  times are g-ood or bad, as customers are  easy or hard to please, and as the  numerous chances of business are  every day presented to him, l.e must  be ever on the ;��� lert and quick to adjust  himself to all these and the thousand  other circumstances of his business  world. The clerk who goes ->bout the  store with a clouded brow, a lag-g-ard  step, and an expression of weariness  and disgust, never makes a success.  But to inspire confidence in his work  he must be alert, energetic, bright of  countenance and elastic '.if step as if  labor was really enjvyable; for ii is the  person who appears to delight in his  vacation who wins.  PUNCTUALITY.  The  clerk  wtio  would   be   valuable  must be punctual.    There is no line of  Damascus, said to be the oldest: of  existing- cities, is losing' its character.

Will Build via  Tulameen,  TRAINS   TO    PRINCETON  Will Be  Running In Six Months.-  Right of Way Has Been Purcnased  Through to Town-  ���'The exact location' of the railway  station has not yet been decided,  although it.is pretty well understood  that it will be situated ou Vermillion  avenue."  WINTER'S DELIGHTS COMING  "The question that has agitated  the  public   min d  and, caused all kinds of  opinions tc- be expressed "e\-ef~since~it  was announced that Jim Hill intended  to build a line of railway into the  Similkameen and on to the coast by  way of the Hr>pe mountains," says the  Similkameen Star, "has been what  route would be followed to the coast���  the Tulameen or the Similkameen.  Survey parties have been in *he field  for some years endeavoring- to find the  most feasible line, and little was known  a* to the outcome of their work,  althoug-h there are a few wise ones who  now say 'I told you so.'  "Major Anderson, purchasing agent  for the Grfiat Northern railway, who  arrived in town on Sunday, is the authority for the statement that this  question has now been settled and that  'what is known as the Tulameen route  has been decided on as the one to be  followed to the coast. While here the  Major closed for the right df way  through the town and also secured  running rights through a portion of  Gulliford's ranch, which goes to show  that the railway will run to this point  and then tunnel to the Similkameen.  The land secured from the Townsite  company includes part of block 26 and  the whole of blocks 27, 28, 29, 30, 31,  32 and 34, lying between Endcliffe and  Burton avenues.  "With the route to the coast decided  on and the right of way through the  town settled, it is stated that construction from Oroville (to which point the  rails will be laid within a fortnight)  ' will be pushed with all possible speed  with every reasonable prospect of  reaching Princeton within the next six  months. As everyone knows, this will,  mean big things for Princeton, as she  will be railway headquarters until connection is made to the coast, during  which time thousands of dollars will  be spent here.  The approach of cold weather  suggests the amusement season  will soon be on us���the seasou of  healthful recreation. In another  month, from all appearances, the  game will be on. Then we shall  see vigorous life disporting itself  in hurtling huge ''stanes" across  the ice aud English and Canadian  citizens vieing with those of  Scotch descent iu getting the  right burr on their words, and iu  charming familiarity calling each  other by their pet nick name of  "hoot."  ^The^welsn^T^  through the years as we see swain  and sweetheart, with joined  hands, gliding across the ice, the  warmth ox their glances in marked contrast with their surrounding field..  Then shall we hear the lusty  call of the Phoenix and Greenwood boys in desperate hockey  struggle restraining their tempers even while they belabor each  others' shins with their crooked  sticks.  Then shall we hear the merry  jingle of sleigh bells and the  merry laugh of the driving party  on the bright  moonlijj-ht  ui<-;hts.  Some of us, too old. or too \n.zy  to join in these sports, can appreciate the "season, although to  such come the delightful pastime  of a magazine in a warm corner,  or a game of pedro or solo with  other g-ood fellows.  ?��**$?- $t ���"*&���'"Si* "^ ��*3*^ *4* *$* ���*^H^^'^'^'^'*^'*^-*^'^-,'*f,'*|*-'-i' **&* *4,K  nunmitwai-*MiMi  *'  4*  Nice convenient cottage in north end of town,  with large gardem  Seven-roomed house in south end of town.
