IS EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD  Only Two Cases of Typhoid Fever  From City Proper.  REGINA WATCHES  GREENWOOD AND MIDWAY.  At .the regular meeting of the  city council held Monday evening, "with Mayor Naden in the  chair, ' the election bylaw was  considered in committee and read  athird timer���A- -letter-was-read.  from Mayor Stevens of Kamioops,  president of the Union of B.C.  Municipalities, asking for , suggestions from council regarding  amendments to the Municipal  Clauses act. A sub-committee  was appointed to report on the  matter. ���>     '  Dr. Oppenheimer, medical officer of health, asked for'leave of  absence, which was granted. He  also presented his annual report,  which was referred to the board  of health. The report follows:  To His Worship the Mayor and  AlEDRMEN   Ol" THE ClTY  OK  Greenwood.  Gentlemen : I have the honor  to submit herewith my first annual report as medical officer of  health for the Corporation of the  City of Greenwood. This report  commences from the date of reappointment,; April 1st, 1905.  Health Bylaw "No. 106,1 am  pleased to say, was brought to  greater perfection this year and  modified in many ways to suit the  growth and advancement of the  city and protect the health of  same.  The city also purchased a Bab-  cock milk tester and is now able  to     determine     accurately    the  quality of the milk supplied.  Several tests were made during  the year and I have pleasure in  reporting the same were up to  the standard ; it was, also, tested'  for impurities (preservatives),  and was in everv way pure and  satisfactory.  There were numerous complaints as to nuisances during  the year ; the same had my best  attention and were rectified, but  I would suggest that; hereafter  complaints be made in writing to  the board of health, then acted  upon, and the sanitary inspector  notify these people in writing and;  a record be kept of the same.. I  am sure this would save a good  deal of work and delay.  A new water supply has at  last been installed. Its source is  preferable to the old, which is a  step in the right direction. Now,  I- would suggest another very important matter, namely, the disposal of the sewage of the city,  and ii the corporation could see  its way clear, I would strongly  advocate that a system be installed. Something will have to  be done sooner or later,, as there  are many cesspools in the city of  six years' standing and these in  time mean trouble. If we cannot  afford a system just yet. I would  suggest tnat the public put in  septic tanks. They can be highly  recommended and, after all, are  less expensive and at the same  time not a menace to the health  of the city; in fact, numerous  places have this method on a  larger scale for their disposal of  sewage. 1^ might. mention -Vancouver, B. C, and, Exeter,; Eng.  I wish your honorable body would  take note of this section of my  report.  I [am pleased to report .the  health of the city was exceptionally good this year' there being  only two cases of typhoid' fever  from the city proper. There was  a mild outbreak of mumps and  chicken p6x among the children.  Gentlemen, I have tried:-to  make this report as concise as  possible,* but there are one or two  suggestions I have made that I  should like to have carried out,  especially the septic tank system.  ���-I-nmst -thank-the -health-board  and the sanitary inspector for  their courtesies during the year.  All. of  which is   respectfully  submitted.    I have the honor to  be,    gentlemen,    ycur   obedient  servant,  Sidney S. Oppenheimer, M.D.  Medical Officer of Health.  Greenwood, Dec. 7, 1905.  INSTALL ELECTRIC HOIST  Power for Elkhorn Mine Now Furnished by Electricity-  The Elkhorn Mining company  this week installed a gallows  frame and a 5-horsepovver electric  hoist. The hoist was supplied  by the Denver Engineering Works  and the motor by the Bullock  Electric company. The motor  and hoist were purchased through  E. G. Warren of the Greenwood  Electric company.  STILL HE LINGERS.  ANNUAL MEETING  Greenwood Liberal Association Elects Officers.  IMPORTANT RESOLUTIONS  Pension System and Eight Hours in  Smelters.  "<"  n\\  One million dollars is being  spent daily to 'quench the thirst  of the people of New York, and  j still J. Peck MacSwain lingers in  j Golden. B.C.  Smith Curtis of Rossland was in the  city this week, leaving today over the  Great Northern.  j. he annual meeting of Greenwood Liberal association held  last Friday evening was  well at-  ���*��� o  tended. Kenneth McKenzie,  president, occupied ��� the chair.  Secretar}7-Treasurer Thomas read  the annual financial statement,  whicn showed a substantial  balance to the ' credit of the association. ���  Dr. H; S. Simmons was elected  president for the ensuing year,  Dr. R. Mathison, vice-president.  and A. F.' Thomas was unanimously reelected secretary-treasurer? The following were unani-r  mously elected as the executive  committee : Kenneth McKenzie,  Geo. R. Naden, W. S. Graham,  S. B. Yuill, J. W. Parker and*-T.  F. Sutherland.  During the installation of officers stirring speeches were made  by Kenneth McKenzie, the retiring president, the new president,  and the vice-president.  The routine business having  been disposed of, two subjects  were brought up that evoked  spirited and interesting discussions. The first was the indemnity bill, passed at the recent  session of the Dominion parliament. The speakers all held  that the increase to members of  the house of commons was justiT  ���fiable,.but held that the pension  system could not be justified and  should be materially' amended  forthwith. Finally the following resolution was unanimously  passed :  ''That the association, while  endorsing the increased sessional  indemnity to members of the  house of commons, strougly dis-  approves_.of__the pension clause of  the Indemnity bill as applied to  ex-ministers of the crown, and it  expresses' the hope that same may  be ie vised at the coming session  of parliament."  Tt was also decided to send the  above resolution to other associations throughout the district of  'Yale-Cariboo.  The other subject discussed was  the question of an eight-hour law  applicable, to smelters. Some  held that if smelter managements  voluntarily' granted an eight-  hour day, the necessity for legislation was removed. Others held  that such legislation should be  passed iu any event as a safeguard for the future. All held  that the system of workingmen  thirteen hours a day should no  longer be tolerated, and unless  immediately discontinued drastic  legislation should be passed forthwith.  Finally the following resolution was accepted as meeting tho  views of those present, and unanimously passed :"..'.   ,  "That this association strongly  endorses   the  action  now  being  taken   in   this province  with   a  view to securing  a  reduction of  (Concluded on Page 2. >*-  i1 BOUNDARY   CRBEK   TIMES  ANNUAL MEETING  (Continued from Page 1,)  the hours of labor in the various  smelters in the province, and requests its representative in the  local legislature to use his influence to support any legislation  furthering this end."  The association then adjourned  after a most successful meeting.  LOCAL NEWS ITEMS.  Dr. Mathison, dentist, opposite post  office.  Chas, Galloway returned Sunday  1 ast from the coast.

Good  programme, Any one who wishes can  put presents on the tree.  The annual special1 number of the  Anaconda News appeared this week.  It is a 52-page edition, containing  statistics of the year's progress in the '  district, principally in regard to the  mining industry. Although Editor  Keffer is one of the youngest journalists in Canada, the special edition of  The News is one of which raauy an  older man in the business might justly  feel proud. '    *���  Pyrrhotite, or magnetic pyrites is  an iron sulphide. It is bronze-like in  color, in hardness of 4 and specific  gravity of 4.6.   It usually occurs mas-   siye. The   mineral   gontains 60  per  cent iron and 40 per cent sulphur. The  great quantity of sulphur in pyrrhotite prevents its external use as an ore  of iron. At times pyrrhotite carries  copper and if in sufficient quantity  makes a valuable copper ore.  La,st week a West Fork trapper sent  sent to a friend in town for musk, The  friend dropped into a drug store and  ordered a pound of musk. " A-a-a  pound ?" the astonished druggist  asked; "Yes, a pound," was there-  ply. "Don't you understand English?" The druggist regretted that he  hadn't that much musk in stock, but  would order it if the customer had  the price on his parson. The purchaser produced his wallet and wanted  to know the price, and guessed he vrai  good for a pound of musk anyway.  , When the druggist thought 51,000  would be a fair deposit, the customer  just said plain "hell!" and left the  premises.  INDEPENDENCE DOESN'T PAY.  pected to praise rascality in the church  and condem the same in corporations;  to praise socialistic co-operative organizations and condem mergers; com  mend anarchy and condemn standing  armies; boost insurance agents and  tin-horns, and condemn highway robbers; praise those who buy their clothing in the east, and boycott Chinese;  work for nothing during a political  campaign for some fellow who has  in some way managed to drift along  without working, and in fact do everything opposed to true independence.  Billy has taken the only sensible counse  in accepting the editorial chair of a  party newspaper. His orders are  easily understood and followed���simply  to praise all the acts of the party and  condemn all opposition.

Frank Oliver's paper. One by one the  old newspaper men of the interior  of B. C.drop out of the Independent  ranks and reach for the "flesh-pots."  The only source of revenue for the Independent newspaper is the working-  man, andjit has been proved time and  again that the workingmen will not  support independent thought. If some  ���peculiarity of his church is criticized,  he wants to mob the editor. If some  action of his union iss unfavorably  commented upon, he wants to fight.

The new  dining cars were built with !a special  purpose in view of affording the most  comfortable surroundings, as well as  giving the traveler a unique and luxurious place in which toenjoy his meals.  A -gentleman who recently made the  journey to the coast from St * Paul on  the Oriental Limited, in speaking of  the dining car service, said: '  "I have '.traveled on almost every  important railroad in the United  States, but I have y��t to find one which  surpasses the Oriental Limited in the  comfort 'and convenience afforded the  traveler.

'     CHARLES II, TYE.  S.BARRY YUILL  THE SETTING HEN���Her failures  have discouraged many-a poultry raiser.  You can make money  raising chicks in the right  way���lots of it.  i\To one doubts that thcro is money in raising  chickens with a good Incubator and Brooder.  Users of tho Chatham Inoubator and Brooder  have all made money. 1�� you still cling* to tho  old idea that you can successfully run a poultry  business using tho lien as a hatcher, we would  like lo reason with you.  In the first place, we can prove to you that  your actual cash loss in eggs, which tho 20 hens  should lay during* tho tiiae you keep them  hutching and brooding, will he enough to pay  for a Chatham Incubator and Brooder in live  or six hatches, to say nothing whatever of tho  larger and hotter results attained by tho use  of tho Chatham incubator and Brooder.  If you allow a hen to set, you"lose at least  eight weeks of laying (three weeks hatching  and five weeks taking care of the chickens), or  say in tho eight weeks she would lay at least  three dozen eggs. Lot tho Chatham Incubator  ou tho hatching, while tho hen goes on laying  eggs.  ^-_Our_No..3Jncubator will hatch as many eggs  as twenty sotting hens, and do itbetter"' Nowr  here is a question in arithmetic:���  If you keep 20 hens from laying  for 8 weeks, how much cash do  you loso if each hen would have  ���    laid 3 dozen eggs, and eggs are  worth 15 cents per dozen J Ans.�����11.00.  Therefore, when the Chatham Incubator i.s  hatching tho number of eggs that twenty hens  would hatch, it is really earning in cash for you  Sil.OO, besides producing for your profit chicks  by the wholesale, and being ready to do tho  s;ime thing over again the moment each hatch  is off.  Don't you think, therefore, that it pays to  keep tho hens laying and let the Chatham  Incubator ilo tho hatching?  There are many other reasons why the  Chatham Incubator and Brooder outclasses  tho setting lien.  The hen sets when she is ready. The Chatham Incubator is always ready. By planning  to take off a hatch at the right time, you iuny  have plenty of broilers to sell when broiler**  aro scarce und prices at the top notch. If you  depend on tho hen, your chicks will grow u>  broilers just, when every other hoi's chicks are  being marketed, and when the price is not so  still'.  Tho hen is a careless mother, often leading her  chicks amongst wet grass, bushes, and in places  where rats can confiscate her young.  Tlie Chatham Brooder behaves itself, is a  perfect mother and very rarely loses a chick,  and is not infested with lice.  Altogether, there is absolutely no reasonable  reason for continuing the use. of a lien as a  hatcher and every reason why you should  have n C'hiilliniii Incubator and Brooder.  Wo are making a very special oiler, which  it will pay you to Investigate.  The Chatham Incubator  and .��r=^  Brooder has created a New Era  in Poultry Raising.  The setting Hen as a Hatchet  has been proven a Commercial  Failure.  The Chatham Incubator and  Brooder has always proved a  Money Maker.  A Light, Pleasant andProfit-  able Business for Women  Many women, are to-day making an independent living and putting by money every  month raising poultry with a Chatham Incubator.  Any woman with a little leisure time at her.  disposal can, without any previous experience  or without a cent of cash, begin the poultry  business anil make money right from tho start.  Perhaps you have a friend who is doing so.  Tf not, wc can give you the names of many who  started with .much misgiving only to bo surprised by the ease and rapidity with which the  .profits came to them.        '        -  Of coarse, success depends on getting a  right start. You must begin right. You can  never make any considerable money as a  poultry raiser with hens as Hatchers. You  must have a good Incubator and Brooder, but  this means in the ordinary way an investment  "WhicliTperhapH'yot^are-not-pi'cpared^to^inako.  just now, and this is just where our special  oiler comes ia.

A GOOD REPORT.  The report of tlie medical officer of health for the city of  Greenwood makes: very interesting reading*. Towns in the mountains of British Columbia are unfortunately not too happily situated in so far as one of the best  preventives of epidemics is concerned-adequate sewage sj^stems.  There are no great outlets in  which sewage can be drained and  consequently towns are forced to  makeshifts that are of ten fraught  with great danger from a public  health point of view. Notwithstanding this fact Greeuwood has  been remarkably free from disease. The good work should continue and whatever improvements  are possible should be introduced.  Iu the conservation of the public  health eternal vigilance is the  price of safety.  MORE CHARTERS.  Charter-mongeriug is infectious. There are now no less  than five apx>lications being made  to either the provincial legislature or the Dominion parliament  for-charters to build railways  through the interior of British  Columbia. The majority of these  have practically the same route.  It is reasonable to suppose that  all these are not being applied  for by bona fide railway builders.  It is possible that none of them  are. Experience in British Co-  lumbia has taught that the indiscriminate granting of railway  charters has retarded railway  construction iu this province.  The opening up of the interior of  the province by a railway run-  mh<�� north and south will do  more for its development thau  any other project, but the bona  fide railway is discouraged at the  outset by the builders of paper  railways, who are always standing in the way until their particular charter is taken care of.  Once parliament grants a  charter its holders arc entitled to  some protection aud and reasonable time to finance their project.  It is unfair to them to grant  them certain   privileges and then  destroy their chances by granting charters to any oue who applies for the same. Let us have  a general railway act, which  would rid the country of charter-  mongering, or show some judgment in granting charters.  Premier McBkibk had an.interview with Sir Thomas Shaugh-  aessy in Montreal recently. Both  the premier and Sir Thomas, or  rather the company of which he  is president, will stand considerable watching, during the approaching session of the legislature. Doubtless the premier needs  a strong friend: at the next election and the C. P. R. are anxious  toget a million or so acres of the  public domain to which it is not  entitled and ���another million dollars of public funds for the construction of a railway to parallel  another road w hich is being built  without public aid. The people,  however, are more anxious to  keep the lands and the money  than they are to help McBride or  theC. P. R.     -  Mexican cut coins and iillig*ree work,  opals and linen drawn work. The.)

"  The resolution passed by the  Greenwood Liberal association iu  reference to the pension system  for cx-cabinet ministers, will meet  with approval. While much cau  be said in favor of granting pensions to those who have faithfully  served their country. The details of the legislation passed last  session are objectionable in many  ways. It is hoped that the government will carefully revise this  legislation and will bring in such  amendments as will remove these  objections.

J  9 Q  <KK>OO<>O<K>OOOO<)OC^OOO0OOOOO  CAL*I*  In recent 3'ears the preparation of  ground mica has bceome an industry  in itself and several Canadian firms  have gone into the business. Waste  or scrap mica, the refuse of the cobbing sheds, -is generally used, The  difficulties of grinding are great,  owing to the tough and scaly nature  of the mineral. Mills which woak well  on almost everything else fail utterly  on mica. Recently there has been a  return to the old burnstones. Most of  the manufacturers keep their process  a secret. Prices of. ground mica range  from 5 to 10 cents a pound, and the  scrap mica for grinding is bought for  $8 to $10 a ton. It must be free from  rust or gangue, which wouldjaffect both  the color and lustre of the product.  The process of grinding as employed  by the International Mica company is  as follows: The mica is first roughly  screened and then cleaned before entering the grinder, which is a sheet  iron cylinder nine feet long by 30 in.  in diameter, punched in rows and set  at an incline of one inch and a half in  its length. As the machine slowly revolves, loose pieces of steel, enclosed  in the cylinder, pulverize the mica  until line enough to drop through the  holes, which are three-sixteenths of an  inch in diameter. It is then sized and  graded in trommels from Hakes down  to the finest powder, the finest screens  being of silk. The plant is operated  by water power on the Gananoqtte  river. The application of ground mica  in the arts and for technical purposes  is manifold? the principal markets  being in England and Germany. A  duty of 25 per cent, is imposed by the  United States.'  A great temple lined with gold, that  shone as the sun, hidden away in a  great unknown land, presumed to exist, not Known to, was the sought for  prize ot muny Spanish expeditions  during the sixteenth century. Conjecture had it that" this wonderful  golden temple existed in the land of  Dabaiba and this land included a  goodly part of South America. No  temple of the kind was ever found, yet  expedition after expedition   made vain  search for the golden myth, penetrating into the then vast unknown central  South American region and though  not having been rewarded by gold yet  they made known to the world the  nature of the wilderness visited, thus  the expeditions were not wholly fruitless. It was-in search of this vast  treasure that the world is indebted to  for +he word eldorado- The latter day  version of the word is somewhat different from its original meaning. The  Spaniards applied the worJ Eldorado  to the far-off temple, which history  told them was lined with ptirelgold and  blazoned with emeralds and the word  has been passed down, today referring  to the extraordinary gold fields, not of  districts where gold is extracted from  ores, but peculiarly only of auriferous  fields.  Kocking stones are known at many  places. A number of them are tlie  work of man; most of them, however,  the work of nature, Those cut by man  have beeu contrived by cutting out a  mass of rock round the center point of  the base of the block. Those by nature are usually granite rocks, in which  porphyry and feldspar occur bountifully; these minerals being rapidly decomposed and the sand and dust swept  away by the elements, what was  originally a solid rock becomes a group  of pillars of irregular shape, separated  by horizontal and vertical fissures,  gradually the edges of the block forming the pillar decay, and it assumes the  appearance of two or more' spheroidal  rocks, one resting on the other, when  the upper mass is so situated as to  preserve the equilibrium; Notwithstanding the gradual wearing away of  the base, a rocking stone is the result.  Rocking stones are centers of interest,  those of Great Britain being numerous, and several of which are artificial.  The greatest of all rocking stones is  that of Tandie, Argentina, whi-.li  weighs 700 tons, yet is so poised that  it rocks in the wind and a nut may be  cracked if properly placed.  The use of a powerful, fan is one. of  the most certain methods of insuring  ventilation throughout a mine.  sc 4*���_& ��H&t 4-4*4* 4*4* 4��4**tf##4'-4�� 4-4**fr-fr-&'fr'fr*fr3g  4-  4s  ty  ty  ���Por a Christmas Gift, what could be better then a  handsome Fur?

I., S. M. McPherson?  said to be of Boston, Mass., and Chas.  Andrews, were engaged in shooting  stumps at Carlin .'&��� Doyle's logging  camp on Sheep creek, beyond Fort  Steele. It appears that they hae loaded  up a hole and withdrew to a distance  awaiting results. The shot hung fire  for a considerable time, and .they,  thinking that all possible pangerhad  passed, went up to investigate the matter, possibly with tha intention of  putting in another cartridge. ��� AJ". they  approached the ���stump the charge exploded, killing Gordon and McPher  son on the spot and severely injuring  Andrews. The bodies of the poor fellows presented a horrible sight when  .brought over to Undertaker Beatty's  parlors to await burial. Al. Doyle  personally took Andrews over to St.  Eugene hospital as fast as a pair af  qorses could make the trip. Andrews'  condition is critical? but there is some  hope for his recovery.���Cranbrook  Herald. ______  Something new in mining in Kootenay will soon be begun by two prominent citizens of Nelson. They purpose to strike an extensive ore body  which they believe exists beneath the  bed of Moyie lake. On the eastsideis  the St. Eugene mine with its large de.  posits of silver and lead; on the opposite shore is "the Aurora? with ore almost identical in character except that  in places it carries higher valves in  zinc. The distance between is about  _2,��00 feet. The idea that the two  mines are on the^aSe~ie"ad~isTrbt "a"  new one. But the courage ^nd ability  required to determine it have not been  combined before. The territory preempted covers the whole width of the  lake with a belt 1,500 feet wide. The  bed of the lake has beeu explored and  found to consist of a deep layer of  gravel, covered by a deposit of fine  clay and silt. Therefore the danger  of water interfering with operations is  not very great. Mining under water  is no new thing. Some of the tin mines  of Cornwall extend for miles under the  bed of the ocean, silver and lead are  mined under the bed of Lake Superior,  and the bed of Nanaimo harbor is one  vast coal mine. The plans ef Messrs.  Black & Mackay involve the sinking  of a shaft close to the boundary line  between -their property and the Lane  Shore mine of the St. Eugene company.  The sides of the shaft will be protected  by cement until bedrock is reached.  Then a tunnel will be driven under  the bed of the lake until the lead is  struck. The depth of Moyie lake in  midchannel is about 200 lfeet, but towards both shores it is shallow, consequently a shaft of moderate depth it-  is thought will suffice.--Nelson  News.  The Secret.  After a good deal of study and work  we have   at last figured out why  many country editors are  rich,  is the secret of success:  A child is born in the neighborhood  the attending physician gets S50; the  editor gives the loud-lunged youngster  and the "happy" parents a send-off  and gets SO. It is christened; the  minister gets 510, and the editor gets  S00. It grows up and marries, the  editor publishes  another long-winded  flowing article, and tells a dozen lies  about the beautiful and accomplished  bride; the ^minister gets S10 and a  piece of cake, and the editor gets S000.  In the course of time it dies-and the  doctor gets from $25 to ��1000, the min-  at Field places a: ister gets perhaps another S15, the undertaker gets from S50 to $100, the  editor publishes a notice of death and  an obituary two columns long, a lot of  poetry, lodge and society resolutions,  and free card of thanks and gels S0000.

Finucane, capitalist of  Spokane, had a narrow escape from  being1 a quarter owner in one of the 17  properties that icomprise the famous  Cobalt mining district in the Temis-  kaniing section;!in> northern Ontario.  In 1904 he was offered one of the four  shares in the Jacobs property for $500.  The letter containing the offer did not  reach Mr. Finucane Tor some weeks,  and was pigeonholed. This year the  mine shipped 320 tons of ore to Newark,  N. J., the gross receipts of which aggregated. $200,000. . * Another carload  *yiU be delivered to the smelter this  month, bringing the year's output up  'to $250,000 gross.  V Robert I. Jacobs, manager of the  Jacobs cobalt mine, is in the city. He  formerly resided in the Boundary district of British Columbia and is here  to attend the?. Oprienheimer-Fischer  nuptials.  The seventeen mines comprising the  Cobalt' district, said Mr. Jacobs yesterday, are now   producing on   a basis  _of_iive_to_six inillioii_do.lltirs_aiiiijia.lly._  The.camp is practically only a year  old, and the deepest level yet attained  is 100 feet. The ore occurs in true  vertical? fissures ..from one to five  inches in width. Average values are  enormous. On our property the ore  averages about $2,000 a ton.  The characteristic ore of the Jaoobs  property carries 4,000 ounces of silver,  2 per cent, nickel, for which the smelter  �� formerly allowed a small amount, but  since cut off : 6  per cent  cobalt,   for  "which we received 65 cents a pound,  and as high'as 70 pet cent arsenic, the  allowance for which has been y, cent a  pound.  Mr. Jacobs has "a number of fine  cobalt samples with him. He us not  personally interested in the ownership  of the property under his management.  a brother in Montreal being the principal owner.���Spokesman Review.

This work has been  somewhat delayed on account of all  the   surveys   not   having  been   completed?   Mr.  Larson's serious  illness  called Mr. Welch  east, but fortunately  he is now fully recovered.    During his  absence Foreman  Kellett succeeded in  getting  the   Similkameen   work   well  underway.    Mr. Welch's firm  has the  contract from the international boundary line  to  Keremeos.    This  work  is-  not envied  from   a  contractor's  point  of view.    Along the banks of the Similkameen the greater part  of  the material   is   broken   rock   and  hardpan.  However, the firm has on   the  ground  the best adapted plant for (work of this  nature.    The   greater portion   of  the  plant was used by J. W. Stewart in the  big irrigation ditch, near  Calgary and  includes  powerful steam   shovels and  heavy wagons, specially constructed to  handle large  quantities  of loose material.   The   hauling  .of   this   heavy  plant   from   Midway   to the Similkameen was no small   undertaking. . As  little snow falls  in  the  Similkameen,  this work will be vigorously prosecuted  all winter.
