BUSINESS IS VERY GOOD  Towns Growing and Trade Is Brisk -  Three-Fourths of the Grading to  Keremoes Completed.  THE.  All Watches,and Clocks in Greenwood  and vicinity should be left at  LOGAN'S ��v  at once, to have a thorough cleaning ancVrepairing.  They will keep,  better time and  last longer.  GUARANTEED.  Jewellery  repairing   of every   discription   neatly  F. M. Elkins, general agent for the  ���Sun Life Assurance company, returned Monday night from an extended  '.rip through the Similkameen and*  Okanagan districts, visiting Keremoes,  Hedley, Penticton and Peachland.  Generally speaking he found these  towns in a prosperous condition steadily growing and in several places a  remarkable improvement has taken  place during the past year. This was  most noticable in Penticton where some  forty new buildings have been erected  during the past few months including  a new Bank of Commerce branch of  whicli J. M'. Christie is manager.  Almost all lines of business is represented and trade is brisk. Fruit growing is becoming an important industry  and the whole beachliue along the lake  front has been ploughed up and planted in orchards. Irrigation projects  have been pushed forward arid the  fruit crop will soon be a large one.  ��� AT KI5KKMOES. :  The same may be said of Keremoes.  W. H. Armstrong of Vancouver, who  Owns a large tract of fruit land, has  been making extensive improvements,  and lands that a few -.months ago wen:  covered- with sage' brush and scrub  have been all cleaned and olanted with  fruit-trees.,-* Mr.* Armstrong has also  located a new townsite on the V., V. ��&  E. about one mile from the old Keremoes townsite, which1.'he expects will  develop into au important point. At  present a large hotel is in course of  construction there. Mr. Elkins states  that about 75 per cent, of the grading  between Midway and Keremoes on th<i  V., V, & E. has be; n completed, but as  yet no ste:l has been laid.  NICKEL l'l.ATK   DtCAI..  !     At  Hedley   the  saw   mill is working  j steady  and a few   men   are at work at  i tne Nickel Plate mine.   It was rumored  i  ; in Hedley that   M.   K.. Rogers,   one of  those interested in the Nickel Plate,  had offered a large sum to buy out the  other shareholders, but they had refused. It is stated that Mr. Roger;  'tffi*Mrtfff6��lKrffi~Oh^  understood no deal has been complete 1.  The ftuit industry i.s also a giowing  one at Hedley, and the district promises  to become an important one in this  line. A Mr. liradshaw, formerly of  Greenwood, is located on a   fruit   farm  live miles from Hedley, which he hns  planted in orchards. Business tirms  arc also improving their premises and  preparing- for a general increase in  trade. The linn of Shatford'.-*. Limited, bus erected a fine store and aro  er.rrying ou a good line of business.  Princeton is also looked upon as a  town with a good future and many iu  the Similkameen look forward to it  becoming a place of importance. Fin-  ley Fraser, well known iu Greenwood,  is putting it]) a brewery al this point.  At Penticton there are many people  from Winnipeg and Manitoba who  have grown tired of the cold prairies  and have located in the "California of  Canada," and are making new fortunes  growing fruit. C. A. C Sewart is proprietor of the leading hotel, and is  finding business brisk in his li.ne.  NEW C. 1'    K. STRAMKR.  At Okanagan Landing the timbers  for the new C P. R. steamer is arriving and other supplies are on hand and  construction is expected to start  shortly. When completed the new  ooat is expected to surpass anything  now plying between interior ports.  There is also talk of the C P. R. building-a wharf at the landing'to accommodate the steadily increasing trade  It is also 0expected that the Bank of  Montreal will erect ;* branch to take  care'of the financial business. As both  the C. P. R. and the Bank of Montreal  people are largely interested in the development of the Okanagan country  improvements of this kind are ex,' ���.���tod  to follow as a matter of naln.-i *���>;  ness enterprise.  During his brief trip Mr. Elkins also  visited Oroville, where he met G. Grie  ger, formerly of Greenwood, Who is  now conducting a wholesale liquor  business and is prospering well. Rev  elstoke and Arrowhead were also visited, and business was brisk in both  places.

C. SMELTER  Foundations Being Laid and New Ore  Bins Started-  Work at the smelter is rapidly proceeding on the foundations for the new  buildings. The stone work for the  support of the superstructure of the  converter room is almost completed  and the excavations for the furnace  rooms are well advanced. The foundations for this structure have also been  started and no time will be lost iu  rushing the work to completion. When  completed the south end walls of" the  furnace room aud converter plant will  be Hush, > and while no additional  converter machinery will be installed,  yet the increase in space will greatly  facilitate the work. When the three  new furnaces have been installed the  capacity^of-the-smelter-^will^be'tiiree  times as great as at present. Construction work on the uew ore. bins is well  under way though progress is somewhat handicapped from lack of material, some shipments of timber having been ^clayed. The water tank  hfsbeen removed to its new position  and will be raised some eight feet  higher. This has been a tedious piece  of work and rather heavy, the tank  weighing some eighty or ninety   tons.  While the (, smelter will eventually  have to close down for a short time to  install the new furnaces, it is not expected that it will be for some lime  yet. Work at thi; company's mines is  being vigorously pushed, and the  heavy shioments af ore continued.  Midway, B. C, April 26.���Victoria  Day has come to be regarded by all. the  towns of the Uoundary as Midway's  for celebration purposes. Dominion  Day and Labor Day and other holidays  has tacitly come to be understood as  sure to be celebrated by other towns,  but to Midway the citizens of the  citizens''of the Boundary look for a  good time on May 24th, and for years  past, and often not under the happiest  of auspices, Midway has made good.  Midway has, iu these evento, .demonstrated that a small number of en'thus-  ���*'   ���*:    t, -.'..VJ  iastic people are better for,a. cause  than a larger number of -apathetic  ones.

BOUNDARY   GRBEK   TIMBS  MINE FATALITY.  John Cascadden Meets Death in the  Brooklyn-  Last Monday, about 1:30 a. tn., an  accident occurred in the Brooklyn  mine, Phoenix, causing the death of  John Cascadden, aged 30 years. The  unfortunate man was engaged as a  mucker and was working at the head  of a chute in the north stope at the  150 foot level. No one was present  when the . accident occurred, but circumstances indicate that a rock slipped  or fell fiom the foot wall, striking deceased on the head and instantly killing him, as life was extinct when  found a few minutes later. An inquest  was held Mond.iy under the direction  of Coioner A. S. Biack of Greenwood,  and the jury, after reviewing the workings and hearing the evidence, re  turned a verriict in accordance with  the above facts.  The late Mr ���' ���-:adden was well  and popularly kr"--"i in Greenwood,  haying-been a re*'dent here for some  yea*s, at one time, being proprietor of  the National hotel. He had visited the  city on Saturday last and. had met  many of his friends here. He was  formerly employed at the Mother lode  mine. He was a single man but is  known to have relatives in the east,  having- received a letter fro;r a sister  in the east last Saturday.  MUSIC AND DRAMA.  Talented Company Delights Audience  on Tuesday Night.  The entertainment given Tuesday  night by the MacKenzie-Glover company was of a character that pleased  all classes represented in the audience,  from the small boy, who delights iu the  ridiculous, to the most serious lover of  the dramatic. The entei tainnutut was  made especially pleasing by its wide  variety of talent representing- Scotch,  Irish, English and German humor.  The farce comedy acts of Mr. Mac-  Kenzie and Miss Glover were especially  amusing-, especially "The Happy  Couple" scene, in which 'he many  amusing situations were well brought  out by the fineacti-ig of the performers. Notwithstanding tiie fact that  both Mr. MacKenzie and Miss Glover  were suffering from severe colds, they  channel their audience with solos and  duets.  The program opened with "Queen of  the Earth," by Mr. MacKeuzie, in  which his powerful baritone voice produced a splendid effect. "The Laird o'  Cockpen" took the house by storm, and  "The Cameron Men*' aroused the martial ardor of all present. .In a duet,  "The Lesson," lie and Miss Gliver  were both heard to good advantage,  the latter's clear, sweet voice bein* especially pleasing. "The Ciookit B w-  bee" was also well acted and sung.  The second part opened with several  comic songs and sketches, mostly  Scottish, and they all emphasized the  artists' wile range of talents. By request, Miss Glover rendered the "Potion Scene" from "Romeo and Juliet,"  and in this her powers for dramatic  production were exhibited with splendid  effect. At all times her clear voice  could be distinctly heard, and every  word and syllable was enunciated perfectly. Her rendition showed a perfect  understanding of the meaning of the  lines and the movements and gestures  portrayed and emphasized the tragedy  ���f the scene.  The program closed with a Scottish  scene, in which Miss: Glover appeared  as a "Bonny Fish Wife," and Mr. Mac-  Kenzie in kilts. ': ���!*���*- ,j.irts were well  played and the in:*, -cs-t of the at dionee  was su-taiiicd to the last. A pleasing  feature was the singing of "���-.'.;��� Her  Herrin," by Miss Glover, and the evening's entertainment was closed by  both dancing the highland  ding.  A most important pari of the whole  entert: inment was the piano .solos and  accompaniments of Madam K isseau,  the talented pianist. She was much  handicapped by the inferiority of the  Auditorium instrument, but abilities  were none the less e.vi-ier.i. and her  excellent playing went far to make the  evening one of unqualified success.  CLAIMS BONDED.  The Mayfield, Starveout and Bounty  to Be Worked  An important mining deal was put  through this week when the Mayfield  Fractional mineral claim, adjoining  the Providence and the Free-  ruont, was purchased by James M.  Patton aud associates It is the intention of the new owners to call for  tenders for the sinking of the 300 foot  shaft to strike the Providence lead.  The Mayfield is one of a group including* the Texas. Sunset and others adjoining   the   Providence.      The   local  syndicate are in negotiations with  Chicago men for-'the formation of a  company to work the properties.  The Starveout. ' claim, owned by  Messrs. Dorngin, Nelson and Sidney  Johnson, has been bonded by J. Mac  Mullan of Ymir. ' Work has been proceeding for the past ten days aud a  ledge showing- 22 inches at one end and  32 inches at the other has been opened.  The Bounty fractional claim, owned by  Messrs. Donagin and Johnson, has also  been bonded, and work on this claim  ��ill soon start. These claims adjoin  the Helen, aud the bright prospects of  this mine has encouraged the starting  of work on tha Starveout aud   Bounty.  SMELTER SMOKE.  Iu connection with the smelter smoke  cases which have developed at several  points in the. west, the defendant  smelter companies have, in one in  stance at least, particularly engaged in  the most elaborate and delicate scientific investigations to determine the  exact effect of smelter gasses upon  animal and vegetable lite. The results of these investigations while  primarily for the purposes of the pending suits, will'undoubtedly be of general benefit in connection with the very,  common disputes which grow out of  the proximity of the smelters and manufacturing institutions to resident and  farming districts. The general field  of economic science will profit considerably by the investigations which  have been made perforce for these  cases. The fact that the defendant  companies are large corporations with  extensive interests alone justifies a  large expenditure which is involved, in  the investigations, and there is also a  possibility* that allied corporations  with -similar problems impending are  meeting some part of the expense of  the investigations, the full results of  which can only be known in the trial  forthcoming, but an intimation as to  the result has it that the investigations  are generally favorable to the defendants in the smelter smoke damage  cases,  !

I    The  local   lodge   o,f   Oddfellowship  ��� will attend divine service in   the Pres  | byterian church next Sunday at 7:30  ��� p. in.

Last Year Make Another Record -Increase Almost 16,000.  The fiscal year that closed on June  30, 1905, the reports of which have recently been issued by the Dominion  government, is in all respects far and  away the most successful year that  Canada has yet. experienced, insofar  as immigration is concerned.  The total number of arrivals in Canada was 146,266, the largest on record,  The most satisfactory feature of this  vast influx is. the fact that 98,902' of  these new settlers, or more than two-  thirds of the total arrivals, came either  from Great Britain ortheUuited States.  This is an achievement on the part  of those responsible for the Dominion's  immigration policy for which every  Canadian .should feel grateful. In a  young country-like Canada, with its  small po| illation, its vast territory and  its unlimited aud undeveloped natural  resources, it is of paramount importance, from a national standpoint, that  the assimilation of the foreign elements  should be as rapid as possible. But  while almost 100,000 settlers, speaking  the same.-language and having the  same national ideals and aspirations  that prevail throughout the Dominion,  are'added to Canada's population within tbe space of- twelve months, there is  not now���if indeed there ever was���-the  slightest danger^ that the national  character *a ill b.e-impaired.  The arrivals from Britain during the  past year ^amounted to 53,359���an increase of 14.985 oyer the preceding 12  months. .  * The American movement to Canada  showed a slight falling- off last year,  though it is still .very large, and the  result of the immigration policy highly  satisfactory.  The following statement shows the  growth of the movement Canadawards  since the fiscal years 1895-6:  CJ.H.and Con.and  Ireland.

Some passages and  corridors runoff' at angles, and others  take a dive and go down some hundreds  o:. feet above or below a series of tuu-r  nels which start from quite a different  entrance way.-.But there are no fish,  as in the Mammoth caves of Kentucky,  in^these  glacial , c^Bcadeai   ^P^0���g  natural bridges-where pot holes and  erosion markings are, well, worthy; of  study. Cave 1 is the Auditorium cave,  consisting of narrow passages, lad-  ,ders and floating bridges.constructed  far underground by the-discoverer.  Grottos, pot holes, a splended corridor,  a-study of the swish of the waters,  then the.large Auditqnum chamber 100  ���feet by 60, 10 to 25 feet in height. A  pUlar of ice was. there,. which meant  that a secret opening from the outside  wajj. not far distant, and one dark,  rolling river we called the, Styx. ;Caves  2 and 3 join one another aud are called  "The Main Cave,V the entrance being  from the gorge. The chambers and  most striking features are named  'The Ball Rc&w" the "I it," or "Deep  Cavern." In another cave we tied a  rope around our waists and went down  a deep circular abyss 60 or 70 feet���one  of the most weird pasaageways imaginable.  Now for :i brief summary of the  caves of Chfops. Climbing up ..from  Ross Creek Tank, after a mile and a  half, you pass under a high bluff called  Lookout Point; then a ravine, then an  old channel way, then a deep gorge or  canyon, which has to be negotiated by  means of a rope-fastened from a ledge.  Then the Mill bridge, and the Flume  and the Gopher bridge. These are  names so selected because of the features of the remarkable run of waters,  which at these upper- districts swirl  under long-extended slabs of limestone  rock. Other ..caves are named "The  Old Mill," "The Terror," -The Turbine," "The Dome," "The Art Gallery," "The Bridal Chamber," "The  Ruined Aqueduct," "The White Grotto." Another cave has the name of  .VAvernus," another VThe Well," or  "Bottomless .Abyss,'? but below it  another passageway has been found,  leading to a high vaulted chamber  called "The Judgment Hall," with a  pedestal set up, and ou another pillar  markings that .suggest a cross. Some  specimens of blue and grey marble and  of stalcite and crystalixed carbonate  have been brought up out of these caverns. Most of the other caves are very  limited, so far as exploration has yet  penetrated.-.- The walk through the  ca.ves is nearly ..two miles. ; Some of  the sudden descents are 250 . feet deep.  Old channels, b ith of Cougar creek  ajid the Cheops streams, can bo traced  fondistances. Mr. Ayres estimates  that it took-40,000 years to cut out these  channels (by means of slow erosions  iu the rock beds .and faces often following "faults" in the strata) The  district which includes these caves and  streams should be.made a park.- 'Trails  should .be cut, accommodation -provided, .electric light, furnished,from the  rushing cascades for the underground  passages; woodwork put in to make  traveling more easy, and Deutschmann  made the caretaker or superintendent.  ���Rev..

An auditorium that is well kept,  well furnished and comfortable  will go far to attract the best  patronage and encourage the best  artists to '"visi{ tlie" t'own 'arid' entertain its best people. On; the  other hand, an auditorium that  is cold, poorly furnished with  sickly footlights, a torn curtain,  that squeeks, rattles, shakes arid  threatens to tumble down when  being raised or lowered, disgusts  the best part on an audience and  takes the spirit out of the'most  optimistic players. Add to this  an old, tuneless apology for a  piano and you have a fair picture  of Greenwood's ���'Auditorium/'  But this is not all.  There is little encouragement  for any company of reputable  artists to visit Greenwood and  perform" itr ~tfle "Auditorium,"  when juveniles lind '.hoodlums are  allowed to take possession of the  gallery and ' make " night hideous" with their peanuts, smoking,  stamping of feet, shrill whistling  and coarse remarks.

The Week, published' in Victoria. is~apaper which is known  to usually take a moderate view  of most public questions, and is  also noted for its fearlessness in  dealing with questions sometimes  unpopular. It cannot be said to  be.a.crank on moral questions,  and neither is it an avowed enemy  of things that are good. Its  views, ^therefore, on tha Sunday  Observance bill, will be read with  interest.    It says:  Observance bill in the Federal  parliament is weakening, now  ������������that-its ���������provisions* are becoming  clearer, and misconceptions arc  being removed.

As to the smelter objection, one of the. most competent  and successfulriiauagers in Kootenay has declared that he would  welcome the proposed law. .and  coil I'd easily' adapt' his work to  comply, with its. requirements.  The whole question has settled  down to one of Gold vs. Golden  Rule.r .,,,-'-  a'wTseTstep.

It is understood that the government was finally led to this step  by the publication of a questionable article written by Eugene'V.  Debs, the Chicago agitator. It  is not likely, however, that the  Canadian government would have  been led to take this step through  the publication of a single objectionable ..article, but it may be  considered as having resulted  from a desire to protect Canadian  readers from that class of literature" to which "Appeal ' to  Reason V belongs. . For years  "Appeal to Reason " has. been  persistently sowing the seeds of  dissention and discord among its  readers and encouraging strife  between labor and capital, and  when it published the raving  utterances of Eugene V.

PHOENIX NOTES  Preparations Under Way for Dominion Day Celebration.  Phoknix, B. C, April 26.���An enthusiastic mass meeting of citizens and  business men was held last night to  consider the holding of a Dominion  Day celebration in Phoenix this year.  There was a representative attendance,  and the matter was thoroughly discussed, an organization for the purpose effected, and the decision arrived  at to proceed with the necessary preliminary steps for holding the greatest,  .celebration ever:given in the Boundary.  who  would  have appreciated   it most  were conspicuous-by their absence.  Mr. MacKenzie's songs, "Cam Ye  by Athol.-' "Hame Cam' Our Guid  Man at E'en" and "Robin Tamson's  Smiddy," would have aroused enthusiasm and provoked laughter in a Chinaman, and what the audience lacked in  numbers it made up in warmth of appreciation. In that respect it was  much better than the audience of Tuesday night.  Miss  Glover delighted  the audience  with her recitation   describing a horse  race. So vividly was the scene depicted  that   the   event   seemed   almost   real.  "The Smack iu School" was  a humorous selection that caught   the fancy of  be th young and old.    The one act play  "The   Snow   Storm," was  a  pathetic  thing describing the reunion of father  and   daughter   after  twenly  years  of  separation.      The    father's   part   was  played  by   Richard   Ravensburg,   and  while he   played . it   in   an   acceptable  manner,   his  acting  lacked   the   more  delicate   touches  of feeling   necessary  lo emphasize   the  most pathetic parts.  The   evening's   entertainment   closed  with the "Bonny Fish wife" and double  highland   fling,   and   so   enthusiastic  grew the audience that Mr. MacKenzie  and Miss Glover were allowed lo retire  only   after   they   had . repeatedly   acknowledged the compliments showered  upon them.  Madame Rosseau, in her piano solos  and accompaniments, contributed  largely to the success of the evening's  entertainment ancP she will be long remembered by the music lovers who  heard her.  From a financial standpoint the visit  'ot the MacKenzte-Glover company was  a failure, bur. they have made friends  who will long remember them and look  forward to hearing them again, some  place.

Horse 'Owners should have h'o hesitation  in reporting to this Department or to its  Inspectors the existence of actual'or suspected  cases of Glanders.

IN districts where the existence of Glanders  is suspected aud especially iu neighbourhoods where actual outbreaks have occurred  the adoption of the following precautious by  owners of horses and others interested will do  much to prevent the spread of the disease and  the establishment of fresh  centres'of infection.  1. Horses or mules having a nasal discharge  or other suspicions symptoms should not be admitted to livery or feed stables or yards, blaek-  smith shops, church or school sheds, railway  stock yards, private stables- or other places  where they are likely to come into direct or  indirect contact with animals of the equine  species.  2. All stables, yards or sheds used for the accommodation of horses or mules should be regularly and frequently cleansed and disinfected  in the manner described below.  3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly,  and burning all debris, the interior should be  well gone over *with hot steam, or boiling water,  adding to the latter at least one quart of crude  carbolic acid to each five gallons after which  the entire surface should be thickly, coated  with a thick solution of fresh lime wash, to  which crude carbolic acid has been added in  the above mentioned proportion.  Outbuildings, fences and tying posts with  which infected animal" have been in contact  should also, when possible, be thoroughly  treated in a similar manner.  All ordinary harness aud stable utensils,  which have been ill contact with infected animals or infected premises, should be thoroughly  soaked in a hot solution of crude carbolic acid  of a strength of one part to twenty.  Materials which might be injured by the  above treatment such as valuable harness,  robes, cushions, etc.. which have been in contact with infection should be placed in an air  tight room and fumigated with Formaldehyde,  after which they should be thoroughly cleaned.  "-4Hnstables-where= outbreaks "have-occurred'  or where diseased animals have, inadvertently  or otherwise, been stabled, even temporarily,  the cleansing and disinfection should be especially thorough and in such cases it is safest to  remove and burn feed boxes and mangers when  of wood: iron articles can be rendered harmless  bv passing them through fire or by immersing  them for some time in boiling water. All litter  from suspected animals should be burned or  carefully fenced until used.  5. Farmers and others should, whenever possible, avoid admitting strange horsesor mules  to the premises occupied by their own animals  especially of the same species. It is a good plan  to reserve an isolated building for outside  horses or mules, but where this is impossible  thev may be accommodated in cow stables,  cattle not being subject to glanders infection.  Such horses and mules should be watered from  special pails, which, together with all other  ��table utensils used on or about them, should  be carefully cleansed and disinfected before  being used for other anima's. Stalls occupied  hy strange horses or mules should be well  cleansed and disinfected and, if at all possible,  left unoccupied for some time.  (*���. When new horses or mules are purchased  iu or from districts where glanders exists, they  should, unless carefully tested with Mallein  prior to purchase, be stabled apart aud closelv  watched for some time before being brought in  contact with other animals of the equine  species.  7. It piust be borne in mind that while nasal  discharge, or ulceration, enlarged glands, the  presence of farcy buds, unaccountable swelling  of the limbs and general nnthriftiness often  characterize cases of Glander.-. the disease  exists in many animals without, for the time  being, any external manifestation whatever,  the only means of detection in such cases being  the Mallein test, and that these occultor latent  cases are in some respects the most dangerous  because unsuspected. Our experience shows  that it is possible for animals of this class to  convey infection to others without themselves  developing acute symptoms. It is therefore  olain that great caution should be exercised in  the purchase or banding of strange horsesor  mules especially iu those districts where the  disease has become established.  8. The carcases of animals dying from or  slaughtered as being affected with Glanders  should, when possible, be burned or. failing  this, buried at least six feet beneath the surface.  1. Owner- of premises where outbreaks have  been dealt with should bear in mind that  Inspectors cannot recommend release from  quarantine unless disinfection has been carried  out in a satisfactory manner and that compen ���  sation for animals slaughtered cannot be paid  cenificate&f Improvements  NOTICE.

The diamond drill consists of a crown  or cylinder of t.tccl around one edge of  which are fixed a series of carbons or.  black diamonds. These carbons are  se.t so that they project alternately a  little beyond the outside and inside  edge of the cylinder. This crown is  screwed to lengths of iron tubing- as it  cuts: its way by rotation into the rock  and it makes, as it descends, an annular cutting somesvhat larger than  the thickness of the continuous tube,  which the crown and its shaft form.  Thus a core of rock is cut and held  within the tube aud the pieces may be  lifted out as *vyork proceeds. The powdered rock resulting fiom the abrasion  of the carbons is continuously washed  away by a current of water forced  down within the tubing. Diamond  drills axe made in sizes from l}{ up to  18 inches in diameter. In boring very  deep holes thousands of dollnrs worth  of carbons will be consumed. The  market prices of carbons is now 575 per  carat.  S. BARRY YUILL  THE STOCK MARKET.  The following are the   quotations of  leading mining stocks:  ASKKD.  inn.

Every act of daily life.  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or indirectly for the' im/  provement of society generally. 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. Amonv 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.
