When the new power plant of the  Greenwood Electric company at Boundary Falls has been completed Greenwood's busy suburb will have one of  the most up-to-date power producing  stations in the country. In construction and equipment every precaution is  being- taken by the company to provide efficiency combined with simplicity and economy of maintanence.  Many will remember that some years  ago a power plant was projected by.  Robert Wood, and C. Scott Galloway,  and that considerable construction  work was done at that time. A dam  was built some 300 feet above the falls  and a shelf was blasted out on the face  of the cliff directly over the falls aud  some trestle work constructed to carry  the pipe line.--* Part of this work will  be utilized bv the new promoters. The  old;dam, which is still in a perfectly  solid condition, will be raised six feet  higher to increase the storag-e capacity  of the reservoir by several million  gallons.  From the dam a thirty-inch wood  staVe pipe line will carry the water  1,450 feet'to the power plant,,1,150 feet  bihb*r'; th<F falls. The iritake'of the  pipe line will be at the top of the pres  ent dam, so that when the work is  finally completed there will be a body  of water six feet deep above the pipe,  supplying a powerful stream of water  to th:: power plant below. The line  will: be carried along the edge of the  cliff on the shelf of rock already blasted put and will follow the contour of  the hill side without passing over the  old trestle. After covering about half  the distance it passes over the top of  the hills and follows a straight line  clown to the power plant. From the  power house a stand pipe will be run  up the side of the hill and connected  with a reservoir which will be. constructed on a level with the top of the  danvafter=it;has been^raised-the necessary six feet. The object of the stand  pipe and reservoir is to regulate the  water power and to safeguard against  accidents.  The power house will  be 26x40,  constructed  of brick  on   strong   founda  tiotis.   The initial equipment will consist of oue generator of 150oK. W.

This will be directly connected to a 200-horse power impulse  water wheel, regulated by a needle  nozzle. The governor, a most important part of the machinery, will be  manufactured by the Lombard Governor Co. of Ashland, Mass., and will  be known as the Lombard governor,  recognized as one of the very best  available today... This piece of. machinery, which is small compared with  some of the largest par<-s, will cost  over ��1,000. The power house is designed to allow for Ihe instalation of  more machinery when this becomes  necessary. ���    ���*  At present Alex Robinson, who has  the contract for rock work, has several  men at work preparing for the laying  of the pipe line, and the construction  of the dam. Considerable rock will  have to be blasted out and some deep  gulleys filled up. The work, including  the building of the power house, will  occupy the entire summer, but the  company expects to have everything  completed by the autumn.  From the power plant at Boundary  Falls the power will be conducted along  overheat 1 wires to a sub-station*, to be  constrncted on the: hillside by the  Phoenix road. -This will be equipped  with three 75 K. W. transformers.  These will transform . the current from  4,400 volts to 2,200 volts. A swith  board will distribute th�� power to light  and power systems of the city. Before  the new system has been completed the  company will make several uecessary  changes in the present line equipment  in the city.  ACTIVITY AT MIDWAY  Rails.and bridge. timbers have arrived in large quantities, and we-understand tljat no time .will^ be losbin  preparing- "the'grade to receive "the  track. This, will be no light undertaking, as there is considerable trestle  work between here and Molson.  The trouble which arose when a  number of Italians were paid off, seems  to have had but little effect on the work  as the booming of shots continue as  before.  Messrs. Porter & Stewart have taken  up their headquarters in Midway, having opened an office in the Riverside  addition. This firm has the contract  for the bridge work.  A number of heavy bridge castings  are piled up in the yard, indicating  preparations for a bridge of considerable proportions. Whether they are  destined for the bridge over the river  at this point, or whether they   are  in-  tended for use at some point further  west, has not yet leaked out.  Twenty-five car loads of steel from  the Sault arrived in Midway last week,  and tracklaying fro n Midway to Keremeos will proceed at once. It is ex  pected that a mile a day will be made  and Keremoes reached this fall.���Midway Star.  Men's Women's and Children's Summer Shoes in tan, white and black. No  better value in town. Try us.

STRIKE AT ELKHORN  Good Vein at the 260 Foot  Level.  A VERY PROMISING MINE  Will Probably Rank With the Best in  the Boundary. -Development  Work Is Continuing-       C.  The Elkhorn mine i* also sharing.in  the good fortune that is smiling upon  the high grade mines of Greenwood.  Last week there were good things to  say of the Providence, and this week  a sort of "to be continued" good;.luck  story tells pleasant things about  the Elkhorn. Early this week a lucky  shot at the 260 foot lev.l .revealed a  strong vein of high grade ore, eight  inches wide, and Elkhorn stock immediately climbed a little hearer the  dollar mark. Tne ore that has just  been opened up not only maintains the  high standard of the mine, but it gives  the.owners every encouragement to  look forward to still greater things in  the future. The shaft, which is now  nearing the 270 foot level, will be continued to the 300 foot level before any  crosscutting or stoping is commenced.  The owners are determined to vigorously push, the.development work, and  after the 300 foot level has been reached  drifts will be opened and ore will he  taken out for shipment. This work  will probably commence during the  latter part of June;';*''.  ._���*.-'" ������'      --y ^PROMISING MINB. /.  The Elkhorn has long been considered one of the most promising mines  in the vicinity of Greenwood and some  of the leading business men of Greenwood have staked their interest in it.  Among others interested are Dr. J. E.  Spankie, E. G. Warren, R. P.Williams,  G. B. Taylor, H.. V. Fuller, James  Sutherland and Phil McDonald.  Prior to the time when the present  owners took possession of the mine,  the Elkhorn was worked by James  Sutherland and Phil McDonald. A  shaft was sunk 142 feet, while two lev^  els were run north and south, one at  the 85 foot level and the other at the  142 foot level. Ore was followed for  over 300 feet on both levels and $76,000  worth of ore- was taken out and treated  at-the Trail-smelter^^���=-,=-=:���.-.   The Elkhorn ore is high grade in  silver and gold. A shipment made  early in January averaged SlOO per  ton and the new ore will maintain this  grade, if not exceed it, running possibly to $125 per ton.  BKA.TS THR  I'ROVIDENCK.  The high grade mines situated to the  north of the city all take their standing, more or less, from the Providence,  the one mine above all others '.hat has  proven the value of the Greenwood  high grade properties. It is inti.rest-  ing, therefore, to note that the Elkhorn  ore has exceeded that of the Providence in yalue and quantity at equal  depths. As Ihe Providence reached  greater depths the richness and  strength of the veins increased, and  so have those in the Elkhorn, and with  the encouragement which the last find  has given it i.s reasonable to expect  that lower levels will continue to produce higher values. The present outlook at the Elkhorn is bright and prom  ising, and in a month or six weeks it  will probably be added to the Greenwood shipping list.  |     Your furniture cleaned and varnish-  led.

THE WATER RIGHT CASE  His Lordship Reserves Decision.���Copper Company Writ Amended.���  Mineral Cases Dismissed-  At tlie court of assize, held in Greenwood this week, the following grand  jury was summoned to serve:  Edwin Warren Bishop, Charles Scott  Galloway, William H. Jeffrey, Fred B.  McLaine, James M. Paton, Herbert F.  Stow, Edward C. Warren and Geo.  Hugh Wood, of Greenwood; Martin  Burrell, G. H. Fripp, Neil McCallum  and William Spier, of Grand Forks;  John R. Jackson, Midway.  After viewing the public buildings of  the city such as the court house, school  house and hospital, they brought in the  following presentment to presiding  Judge Morrison:  May it please your worship, the  grand jury desire to extend to you a  cordial welcome upon this, your initial  ,isit to this district.  We have inspected the goal, court  house, school house and tbe hospital,  conducted by the Sisters of St. Joseph  of Peace, and found same to be all in  most excellent condition.  We congratulate your Lordship on  the paucity of criminal cas��s to come  before you, but desire to respectfull}'  draw your attention to the necessity  for more police protection at Midway  and other international points, as  owing to the proximity of the International Boundary line several ca**-:es of  shooting, hold-ups, etc., have remained  unpunished.  We trust, your Lordship's stay in  the Boundary may be a pleasant one  and that you may have an opportunity  of seeing the wonderful mineral resources which are responsible for the  development and progress of this section of the province. ���' . ���  ���  C. Scott Gaiaoway,  Foreman.  The petit jury included the following:  Edward B. Dill, Robert Donagin,'  James I, Feeny, Frank Janes, Edward  H. Mortimer, Norman Morrison, William McBride, James D. McCreath  John H. McFarlane, John W. Nelson,  Sidney Oliver, T. Stuart Palmer,'  Thomas H. Patterson, Dan Steward,  Frank Spearing, Wm. T. Smith, Isaac  Skidmore, George Swayne, George H.

Smith, Joseph Wilmshurst arid John  ^WilHamsori7"of ^Anaconda] John Mulligan, of Phoenix; P. T. McCalinm, of  Grand Forks.  THE CASES.  The first criminal case v?as that of  King vs. Lofstad, committed on a  charge of shooting. The grand jury  found no bijl and the case was dismissed. The other criminal case was  King vs. Andrews. George Andrews  was charged by the V., V. & E. railway with obtaining money under false  pretenses last August. Only one witness, K. G. Hankinson, of Midway,  was called by the crown. The case  first came up on Monday, but was not  proceeded with, as it was desired that  A. E. Baldwin of the V , V. & E. survey party now working in the Hope  mountains, be brought to Greenwood.  After waiting four da}-*, and finding  that il was impossible to get Mr. Baldwin, the parties consented to proceed  with the case. After the evidence had  been taken the judge reviewed the case  and charged the jury strongly in favor  of the accused, and the jury gave a  verdict of not guilty without leaving  their places. Earnest Miller for the  crown, J. P. McLeod for the defendant.  The civil case of Worden vs.Worden,  to have defendant declared trustee for  plaintiff of a certain farm near Sidley  and for alimony, was settled out of  court. A. M. Whiteside for plaintiff,  J. R. Brown for defendant.  THE WATEK RIGHT CASE.  The most important civil case was  that of W. H��� Covert and the Eastern  Townshios bank vs. Lenord Vaughan  Mclnnis and the B. C. Trust Co. 3. S.  Taylor and H. C. Hannington for  plaintiff, J. A. MacDonald and David  Whiteside for defendants.  The claim was for a declaration of  priority of record over some 300 inches  of water ia Fourth of July creek.  Both Covert and Vaughan are pioneer  farmers in the Grand Forks district.  Covert came into the district in 1885.  In 1887 he applied for a water grant,  but by some mistake this was not  issued until 1889. In the meantime  Vaughan applied for and secured j.  grant over the same water in 1888.  These circumstances tended to seriously complicate matters and a worse  condition of affairs was brought about  by Vaughan and his partner, Mclnnis,  abandoning their preemption claims,  thus impairing thsir water rights.  Covert and Vaughan are both owners  of valuable property. On the former's  ranch are planted some 11,000 fruit  trees, and on the latter are some 400  trees. The case is an important one  and Judge Morrison has reserved decision for the present, desiring to give  it careful consideration before rendering final judgment.  OTHER  CASES.  In the case of the Dominion Copper  Co. vs. Athlestan Gold and Copper  Co , A. M. Whiteside, counsel for the  plaintiffs, asked liberty to amend writ  of summons and also for a mandamus  compelling defendants to establish a  registered office in the province under  the Companies' act and to register  stock thereunder. The court gave an  order to amend the writ, but the  mandamus was deferred.  In the case of H. J. Cole vs. Nicholas  Kuhman, Richard McCulloch and  H. H. Shellenberger, an order was  granted dismissing action and removing adverse filed against title in mining recorder's office of the Yellowstone  Fractional and the Crescent Fractional  mineral claims.

Some idea as to  its size can be gained from the over-all  dimensions, which are fifteen feet long  and six and one-half feet high. Each  car weighs 27,000 pounds, empty, or  ���47,000 pounds when filled with slag.  The bowl is made in five sections, the  bottom being made in one piece with  four quarters forming to top. This  allows of any worn or broken part be  ing easily replaced. These sections  are securely bolteti ' together and tied  to a steel supporting ring by key bolts.  The supporting ring is securely riveted  to the pinion-toothed trunnions which  roll on a racked track. The pinion and  the track are both made open between  the teeth to prevent their being clogged  by any slag which might be spilled  into them. "The trunnions are rolled  by meins of a sleeve which is operated  through a - lever by a 12-inch compressed air cylinder. This cylinder is  designed to operate on sixty pounds  air pressure and to tilt and hold the pot  in any desired position. The -nr valve  for this cylindar is a simple four-way  cock corvenien'tly operated from the  side of the car. All the levers aad  other operating parts are made of steel  to reduce, the weight of the machine  without sacrificing /strength. A hand  wheel and screw is also provided so  that the bowl can be dumped by hand,  should the air supply fail from any  cause. When tilted to' the extreme position, the side of the bowl makes an  angle; of SO degrees with the vertical  to'a's to readily1 allow the slag skull to  slide out. The bowl in dumping is  carried to the side of the car by the  rolling of the trunnions, so as to dumb  outside of the rail. An apron * iu the  middle of the truck prevents any drippings from falling on the track.  The entire body of the car is'carried  on eight powerfursprings placed under.  the front and rear supporting frimes  and resting on the main bearing boxes.  A large factor of safety was used in  the design of all the parts of this machine because of the rough usage to  which it' is put. Special pains were  also taken to make it as simple as possible.-to/Operatev for the meii usually  employed for'such labor." Slag cars of  this design are made iii various sizes  up to fifteen tons in capacity, and with  or without the air cylinder. ":  ABO^WlXEAFimiRE,  Henry Morgan, the office boy to a  large*manufacturing company, was a  smart youngster, and one day when he  was sent to one of the operating departments with a message he noticed  at once that something was wrong  with the machinery. He gave the  alarm and thus prevented much damage.  "'The matter was reported to the head  =,of^the=firm,^who..summotiediHen.ry.J=^=_  "You have done me a very great  service, my boy," said the genial chief.  "Your wages will be increased by one  dollar weekly."  "Thank you, sir," said Henry. "I  will do my best to be worth'it."  The reply struck the chief almost as  much as the boy's previous service had  done.  "That's the right spirit," he said.  "In all the yeats I have been in business ho one has ever thanked me in  that way. 1 will make the increase  two dollars. Now, what do you say to  that?"  "Well, sir," answered Henry, after a  moment's hesitation, "would you mind  if I said it again?"  THE SENATE  elusions recently. The report as presented ��� deals with the question of Niagara Falls and the water power at  Sault Ste. Marie. In regard to Niagara Falls the commissioners agree teat  it would be sacrilege to destroy ths  scenic effect of the great cataract. In  order that the falls may be preserved  k is recommended that not more than  36,000 feet per second be abstracted  from the river on the Canadian side  and not more than 18,500 feet per second on the American side. In addition,  a diversion of not more than 10,000  cubic feet per second may be authoi-  izel for the Chicago drainage canal.  The Canadian commissioners, while  assenting to these conclusions, express  the view that any treaty or arrangement as to the preservation of Niagara  Falls should be limited to the term of  twenty-five years and should also establish the principles applicable to all  diversions or uses of boundary waters.  In regard to Sault Ste. Marie, it is  agreed that the water power should i:e  divided equally.  EDITOR'S SON RAN AWAY.  .

Sir Wilfrid Laurier made rather an  important speech last week in discussing a resolution which had been introduced in favor of Senate reform. The  resolution was moved by Mr. Mcintyre  of Perth, who advocated the substitution of fifteen year appaintments for  life tenure and compulsory retirement  at 80 years of age. Sir. Wilfrid expressed a personal leaning toward the  American system of nomination by  legislatures and suggested that the  subject might properly engage the at  tention of the conference of Provincial  Premiers which will be held this year.  * * * Mr.W. F. Maclean introduced  a motion to rescind the sessional in-  .demnity and pension legislation of  last session. The trend of opinion in  the bouse seeins to be in favor of retaining the indemnity, though the pension arrangement may be modified.  INTERNATIONAL  WATKKWAYS.

People who tell you that there is no  money .in raising chicks may have tried  to make money in the business by using-  setting hens as hatchers, and they  might as well have tried to locate a  gold mine in the cabbage patch. The  business-of-a hen is���to lay eggs. As  a hatcher !and brooder she is outclassed. That's the business of the  Chatham Incubator and Brooder, and  they do it perfectly and successfully.  The poultry business, properly conducted, pays far better than any other  business for the .amount of time and  money  invested.  Thousands of poultry-raisers���men  and women all over Canada and the  United States���have proved to their  satisfaction that it is profitable to raise  chicks with the  CHATHAM INCUBATOR  AND BR00DE&  "Yours::; tho tl rsfc iucubutorl have  used, ait.I. 1 \vi.sh to sLate I had 52  cliii-!*;*** oi.!. of i.i vsg'.i.

Freeman, the 15-year, old sou of the  editor of tne Northwest Farm and  Home, North Yakima, Wash., ran  away from home and has not been  seen since. He has brown hair, blue  eyes, wore blue overalls grey jacket  and black flannel shirt, soft black felt  hat. All last year he was an invalid  from rheumatism and nervous prostration brought on bv cigarette smoking  and other imprudence. An aged, grief  stricken father appeals to the press  to publish this notice in the hope that  it may lead the boy to voluntarily return. If he does not do so there is still  hope left, and that is that the officers  of tbe law will arrest and hold him,  and telegraph his father and receive  the reward for so doing.  In the nervous  condition of  the boy  his naturally  bright mind is   not   normal and he is not responsible for what  he does.    What  the  patent desires  to  do is to save him from a life of degeneracy and  crime.    The  father  of  the  boy has built up an excellent book and  job printing  business and   had   hoped  that he would deed it  along   with   the  buildings, lots machinery and business  to his son.    He is a practical printer.  Yours fraternally,  IvKIOU Freshman.  Editoi    Northwest Farm  and  Home,  North Yakima,  Wash.

Ambitious citizens who are anxious to see the Boundary metropolis take its place among the  leading cities of the province,  apparently think the first step  should be the establishment of a  daily paper. Those Avho are least  informed as to the cost of running  a daily neAvspaper are the most  anxious to have one started. It  Avill probably surprise many ami  disappoint others, to learn that  the income of the average village  newspaper in British Columbia is  barely sufficient, and in many  cases, fails to meet current expenses. The Nelson Daily NeAvs  has frankly admitted that they  are obliged to put up a continal  "struggle in order to pay their bills  and keep the sheriff from becoming too intimate Avith their  affairs. The News is a good  paper and is a credit to its energetic editor, F!f J. Deane, but  ���why should a neAvspaper manager  any more than any other business  man run a thousand dollar enterprise in a hundred dollar tOAvn?  If the city of Nelson, the acknoAvl-  edged distributing point for the  Slocan and the Boundary,  with its shipbuilding and lake  trade, its 20.000 club and  progressive business men cannot be made to yield its one daily  paper, a living profit, how in the  name of common sense could a  daily paper make enough to pay  a business tax in Greenwood?  The more the approval by the  House of Commons of Clause 3 of  Mr. Hudson's bill is considered  the less does it commend itself to  all avIio are free to use their own  judgement in regard to a matter  substantially simple and of great  importance. Mr. Westlake tells  us in the letter which Ave printed  yesterday that the clause in its  present form will be futile, that  it will leave things exactlj- as  they were, and that under it there  will be new decisions as disappointing to unionists as the Taff  Vale case. Certainly the clause  is clumsily worded. It does not  aptly express the end in view, if  it expresses it at all. Trade  unions are at present not liable  "by reason of the action of a  member or members of such trade  union;" but because they are the  'priucipals^of-"-agents^who='have-  done wrong in the course of the  business of their principals or  employers. The clause might  have ran with great clearness in  some such terms as these���"The  principle of employers' liability  shall not apply Avheu employers  are trade unions." We are not  sure, however, that the adoption  of the clause as it stands Avould  "leave the Courts just where they  are." At all events, the object  in vieAV is clear. "Trade unions  can do no Avrong," is to be enacted. We are familiar Avith this  doctrine as to the Sovereign. It  is to be extended to these associations. Religious bodies have in  past times claimed a- similar immunity, but their pretensions  have been resisted ?nd have failed., Even the CroAvn no longer  enjoys full immunity ; there are  wars and means bAr which an aggrieved subject can obtain redress. Mr. Hudson's measure, if  construed as he desires, Avould  place trade unions in a wholly  unique position. The}- Avould  have here privileges denied to  them, so far as is known, in any  country in which such unions  exists. The amazing facility  with which a measure of this  kind has commanded an over-  Avhelming majority in the House  of Commons illustrates in a striking way the effect of the practice  of extracting and giving "pledges" as to the manner in which  candidates Avill  A-ote as  to par  ticular measures if they are returned to Parliament. It is ! a  pernicious practice. A constituency is entitled to know the  general convictions aud policy of  any one soliciting- its votes. On  the momentous matters of politics  he is justly expected to speck  clearly and to abide by his declared opinions. The evil which  is growing fastis that of exacjt-  ing precise promises as to particular measures made up of many  important details, the consequences of which can often be  understood only after full discussion and close examination. To  endeavour to extract a pledge of  this sort is to ask a candidate io  shut his eyes to light; to forbid  him to use his reason, reflection,  and ampler knowledge; to tui>n  him into a delegate who goes to  Parliament with orders or instructions from which he must not  deviate. Is there something- in  the-character-of-moderni-canvas:s-  ing Avhich tends to multiply this  sort of machine-made opinion?  We shall never know how many  gave such a promise with respedt  to Mr. Hudson's Bill without  having read it. It may be conjectured Avith plausibility from  recent speeches that many Avhp  read it did not understand its purport and consequences. j  It is to much too soon to forej-  cast the ultimate fate of thd  measure which the Government  has adopted. In due time it will  pass the Commons, though, it is  to be hoped, Avith many modificaj-  tions in detail. But one cannot  help speculating as to what  would happen if, being sent to  the house of Lords, that Assembly, perhaps convinced by the  Attorney-General's arguments  were to recast it, and to restore it  substantially to form in Avhich he  introduced it. What would be  the duty ot the Government in  these circumstances? Not, it  Avould seem, to complain that the  House of Lords had taken the  exact course Avhich they had  recommended as the best. Nor  would it seem to be reasonable to  treat the matter as one ol secondary consequence, as to which  the Government need give no  leading, but might divest itself  altogether of responsibility.���  The London Times.

Greater   Interest   Beinj?   Taken   in  Greenwood Properties  The excellent results recently obtained at the Providence and Elkhorn  mines and the excellent conditions at  the Strathmore, which are steadily improving, have had a splendid effect  upon the outlook for the Greenwood  high grade mines. Not only has local  faith been Strengthened but considerable interest has been aroused among  eastern capitalists and new money is  likely to be secured for local investment.  .CLAIMS BONDED.  It is understood that the Diamond  Fraction, Texas and Mayfield.

The drift is being opened along the. vein and present  indications are most encouraging. It  is expected that a shipment will be  made this month from the ore taken  out in development work. The winze  will be sunk to the 100 foot level and  drifts opened north and south on the  vein and shipments made regularly.  The Chicago owners, who recently  acquired control of tho Strathmore,  are well pleased with the results obtained so far and have decided to equip  the mine with all the necessary machinery and run the mine to its full  capacity.  %&.*<rZ^.**l<*&!rt&m-*W  ���> ���    - * - '-- ���>  s  UNEEM ir, STEEL RANGE  Satisfactory Operation Guaranteed.

TIMES:,  DO YQU EAT SALT?  Its Use and Abuse  Discussed by Scientific Authority.  The other day a board of health phy  sician remaiked to me: "Chloride of  sodium is not found in the composition  of the human body. Therefore it must  be supplied along- with our food." I  replied: "'Not so, doctor; because salt  is not native in our bodies it should not  be supplied, for we naturally have no  need of it. And, besides, what the  body does not need is a burden or a  danger t > it. Why not say, 'alcohol  and nicotine are not found in the system. Therefore supply them.'" Fallacious argument!  Com men salt is composed of two  active pi isons���chlorine, a heavy yellow gas, irritating the air passages  when inhaled and very destructive to  color and fabrics., which is .seen in the  action of chloride of lime, as used in  laundries, and sodium, which is .1 metallic element. Together they form a  salt of an earthy character.  I believe the following sea'ements  about salt are exact and reliable:  1. Unorganized minerals (salt, iro*",  lime, elr.) cannot he assimilated by and  used in rebuilding the body. Only  when organized into living grains,  fruits, nuts and other foods, cm these  minerals become a vital part of our  organism.  2. On the other hand, we cannot long  live, perhaps only a few weeks, unless  the exhausted salts of our systems are  renewed. This is a vitally important  necessity, though the amount needed  is small. All the minerals which the  body can utilize to any advantage are  abundantly supplied iu natural   foods.  Hutchinson's Physiology says: "Salt  is usually taken into the system in  sufficient quantities in our food. Even  the water we drink has traces of it.  The habitual use of much sail in  cooking or as a seasoning at the table  is a bad habit in itself and leads to  the desire for other and more injurious  condiments."  M. Rene Laufer, in "Revue Scientv-  fiqe," writes that, "The taste for salt  is nor innate or instinctive; it is acquired. The mother's milk contains  very little salt. Cow's milk has at  le;.st four.times as much, but even with  this amount the adult who shoul-d live  on milk alone���say three quarts a day  ���would take more chlorides than he  needs. Man in a state of nature does  net salt his food. Primitive peoples  who lead a pastoral and nomadic life  do not add salt to what they eat. The  same is true of animals. Dogs and  cats do not like'salt. Even the domestic herbivores get ���-���along very well if  salt is not added to their food. ,/Phe  tales of disease resulting from lack of  salt are ���:not trustworthy." (From  translation in Literary Digest )  PLAIN  .FACTS.  3. Salt destroys the natural delicacy  of taste, as does alcohol. The palate  becomes so dulled that no food seems  to have any taste without high season-  ^iug-w/Ehis-en tails -the���loss���of���much-  real pleasure in eating, for the divinely  imparted flavors areperf :ctly delicious,  but the salt or pepper depraved tongue  is too numb to enjoy or even detect  them.  4. The use of salt with food tends  strongly to overeating. More fo&d is  eaten because it is "aalted to taste"  than the system requires or would be  eaten otherwise.  5. Salt has a specially harmful effect  upon the blood and its circulation. Ou  a damp day observe the moisture on  the metal cap of your salt shaker.  Witness, too, how a brick of salted  butter will "sweat." Salt has the  property of drawing Mie moisture from  the air to the perforated cap; out of  the butter to the surface of the mass,  and it draws the moisture from your  blood, and leaves it far too thick to  circulate freely through the infinitely  small capillaries that connect the arteries with the veins. These capillaries  are so minute that il takes 335 of them  to make an inch. They are finer than  baby's softest hair, aud hollow, too.  The blood tlows through tbe arteries to  the capillaries, but if must be thin  enough to go through easily. Then it  goes back to the heart by the venous  circulation. But the blood is too thick.  It does not pass from artery to vein  readily. The hands and feet grow  cold. T'ie heart wearies ot tryicg to  force it through, and the whole being,  clogged and impure, ciics out, Water,  water! That is exactly \vh3' you are  ��o thirsty after eating heartily of salt  fish.  Try this experiment: Take the  brightest red piece of beefsteak you  can buy. Salt it thoroughly. Xnv  look at it in three days. Where has  all the redness gone? Precisely where  the rosy complexion of your childhood  has gone, my dear salt seasoner. It  takes the healthy redness fn.m the beef  blooil and from yours, loo.  6. Salt interferes with digestive  processes. Vinegar and salt are g-ood  embalmers���the fir.stof vegetables, the  other of dead carcasses, A piece of  meat salted so that it will l<eep is  simply embalmed. It keeps well out  of the stomach. It keeps better inside  of it lhan wr-re. it unseasoned. Any  food treated to a fixation of its condition is thereby made less digestible It  is preserved, pickled, cured, embalmed  (or anything you please) against the  atmo.-spher: and against Ihe gastric  juice.  Now lei me tell you of some experiences  I   have had with animated  salt  cellars:  SOJ1K CASKS.  Case First.���Miss W. wished me to  visit her sister, a chronic invalid 1111-  hflped by any treatment, i went to  take dinner with the family and observed the sister's symptoms across  the table. White, chalky skin, dull  eyes, blue linger nails, a listless manner in general, poor breathing, etc. In  a moment she calls forsalt. Iu passing  it i.s spilled. After the usual jokes  about "bad luck," I used her if she  used much salt. "Yes." sh-.* rc-plie;!.  "lean eat nothing unless smothered  with it." Then, much to her surprise,  I informed the ladies that the sickness  was wholly due to ruination of the circulation owing to salt eating. She  gave it up, aud now I hear that she  enjoys almost perfect health.  Case Second.-- A mother spake to me  about her daughter's ghastly complexion and the strange coolness of her  skin in any weather. The hands and  feet were always cold. "Yet," said  her mother, "Jennie's appetite is good,  but she i.s so nervous and irritable and  loo weak to exercise either body or  mind."    I asked about  salt.    Yes,  she  craved   it   conti iiially.  Tiie  mother  became afraid of her eating so much,  and it was hidden in the barn. Jennie  searched for it. Perhaps she found it-  soon.    Airway, she died.  Case Third.��� A 16-year-old boy returns home from skating nearl\' perished with cold. The other youths are  perspiring, He eats an apple, aud.with  it a teaspoonful of salt. The .same old  story. He also wore woolen socks in  bed���his feet were so cold. The salt  did for him what it does for the ice  cream freezer���lowers the temperature  of the blood bj- evaporation and destroys the cold-resisting power of the  body.  Reader, 3'<>u ma)r be incredulous of  these facts and say, "I don't eat enough  to hurt mc." I thought so, too. But  do as I did. Try this experiment���live  all next fall and winter abstaining  wholly froii' salt. All this winter I  have not touched it. I wave worn  lighter clothing, used lighter bedding,  slept in a room with open windows and  uo heat, and have felt no need of stimulants or even warm meals all winter.  My heart action is more positive than  ever before. For the first time in my  life I have gone through the cold  weather without suffering from the  bugbear of cold feet,       -.- - ���  If you are given tc overeating, avoid  salt.  If you are anaemic, avoid salt.  If you have weak heart, poor circulation or cold extremities, avoid salt.  If your hands chap and break open,  avoid salt.���A. Ziegler, li.

THE   NORTHLAND   TRAIL  The compass point of opportunity is  again directing thousands of emigrants  eager to pursue the path of promise  into the conquered wilds of Western  Canada. The great wheal crop of last  lall has been translated into gold as  yellow as the nuggets unearthed in the  Sierras by the Argonauts pf. Forty-  nine- Money is reported to be as  plentiful on the prairie of the Northwest as it was in Dawson and Yukon a  decade or more ago. The plow and the  seedei are today singing the bonanza  song-, and the pilgrims of empire are  dancing to this music as miners have  done to the click of pick and pan. A  hundred thousand settlers are expected  to desert the States between now and  the last of June. It would be well if  even a larger number could be drafted  from the millions of homeseekers who  annually come to claim a welcome -at  the American front door. No one cau  deny that a large good is being done  to the many who take the northland  trail, for there work is rewarded with  plenty. The first need of life is food,  and the Western Provinces are fast  developing- into one of the world's  great food fields. On such a firm  foundation a great people are sure to  rise. The day has broken clear over  the valleys of the Saskatchewan, and  these settlers liv-: in a land of good  and golden promise.- Collier's Weekly.  Not if as Rich as Rockefeller.

The Wood Medicine Co.  {formerly Windsor) Toronto, Out,  IN AMATEUR COMEDY  Local   Artists   Win   Pronounced Success,  LARGE CROWD DELIGHTED  Rounds of Applause Great the Players  ���Interest Well Sustained from  Start to Finish.  THE MERCHANTS CORNER  Pianos polished   to  look  like   new.  Thompson &. Rowston, tf  The Greenwood Amateur Dramatic  company played successfully to a full  house Thursday night, presenting  "Between the Acts" in a manner creditable to all members of the company  and pleasing their large audience to a  pronounced extent. Considering the  fact that a series of misfortunes (the  sickness of several players, who after  practicing for some time were obliged  lo find substitutes), tended to interfere  with the work of preparation, makes  Thursday night's succesful performance all the more notable. Generally speaking all the players acted  (heir part well, though it would be an  overstatement to say that the cast was  an all star one.  SOME stars.  The position of a critic is seldom a  pleasant one, and it is less so when it  is necessary to say that the acting of  the gentlemen was rather superior to  that of the ladies. It is but fair to  state, however, that the ladies were at  a disadvantage in the rehersals. The  palm of superiority must be. awarded  lo Randolph Stuart as George Merri-  gale, and to N. F. Kendall as "The  Uncle," while F. W. McLaine played a  difficult and interesting part in a manner that commanded the continuous  attention of the audience and sustained  tlie interest in the comedy. His part,  though cleverly performed, lacked at  times sufficient intensity of feeling to  fully inteipret the spirit of th2 moment. Mr. Kendall and Mr, Stuart  both were clever in their interpretations by both word and act, and their  ennunciation was almost faultless.  A. E. Duchesnay as Harris, "the  valet," added to the multitude of comical situations. His demeanor and appearance was highly appropriate and  pleasing aud it would be hard to secure  an amateur more fitted for the part.  His ennunciation was not as clear,  however, as many in the audience  would have desired, and his lines were  frequently spoken so hurriedly that  their meaning was lost to many, especially at the rear of the house.  A  FAVORITE.  Among the ladies Mrs. McLaine as  "Sally" was the favorite with the audience, her jaunty Irish appearance and  h^t^weir~sp6l^h7^vitticism^  enjoyed and loudly applauded. She  was one of the stars of the evening  and played her part exceptionally well.  Miss Reid as "Dick's Aunt'' and the  quarreling wife of Dick's crusty uncle,  played her part elfectively. She was  seen to best advantage when starting  a quarrel with her husband and when  she swept from the stage vowing never  to return. Her moments of grief,  however, were hardly intense enough  to strike a responsive cord in the auditors hearts, though they were good  imitations of the genuine.  Mrs. English as "Dick's Wife,"  proved an interesting character and  her inopportune appearances upon the  scene added much to the enjoyment of  the comedy. She was especially interesting in the most spirited interviews  with "Dick's Aunt," Miss Head,  though, at times, the manner and vocalization of both suggested unfamili-  arity with their lines.  A DECIDED SUCCESS.  To say the least, the first performance of the Greenwood Amateur Dramatic company was a decided success,  and it is doubtful if another company  of equal talent could be organized in  the city. Their success should encourage them to continue in the good work  they h: ve started and to str��ve to attain to greater perfection and to en  courage the musical and dramatic talent of the city.  Between the first and second acts  A. M. Whiteside favor *d the audience  with a vocal selection which was much  enjoyed by all present. Mr. Whiteside  was in excellent form and he was  obliged to respond to a hearty encore.  Mrs. Sidney Oliver was his accompanist. Between the second and third  acts Mr. Upson of Boundary Falls,  rendered a song and gave a clog dance  yrhich.was especially enjoyed by the  boys in the gallery.  Hood    River   Strawberries---Hi��her  Priced Underwear.  The Hood river strawberry crop is  estimated at 70,000 to 80,000 crates this  season. This year 108,000 crates were  ahipped. Last year's shortage is due  to several causes. The season of 1904  was unsatisfactory, as by a combination of circumstances the berries we're  late aud arrived on the eastern markets  in competition with the berries from  nearly all the heavy berry districts of  the Mississippi and Missouri river  points, and while the fruit of those  sections is much inferior, yet it served  to lower the markets at all points. This  discouraged many of the Hood river  growers, and they reduced their acreage. This year's acreage is at least  400 acres less than in 1904.  In the upper valley, both in the Mt.  Hood and Crapper sections, there has  been some increase in the acreage, but  it has been more than offset by reductions in the valley. There will be more  late berries, about the same amount of  early berries, but far less to ripen in  middle of tHe berry season. This however, will no doubt be of pecuniary advantage to the strawberry growers of  the entire valley, as it will serve to distribute the crop over a longer period,  make it easier to obtain pickers during  the height of the season, easier for the  shippers to handle the crop, and less  apt to cause a glut in thedifierent markets at any time.  Apples are beginning to bloom, and  the bloom is very heavy all over the  vallev. Many of the orchards are  beginning to bear this year, mostly  Sphzbergens aud Newtowns. There  will be four or five times as many of  these varieties as last year, while it is  estimated that the entire crop of* commercial apples will be fully 175,000  boxes, against 60,000 last year.  PRICES GOING VP.  Manufacturers of knitted goods are  forcing their selling agents to demand  higher prices for the coming season,  and on all duplicate orders top prices  must be paid. Representatives of the  largest underwear mills said recently  that) they had practically concluded  that an advance in prices is imperative;  otherwise they will have no goods to  deliver. This refers, of course, to the  business which i.s to be given now for  delivery next season. ,  As to the extent of the advance  nothing will-be known definitely nntil  a month or two hence, when mills are  ready to show their Hues. The mills  are not only hampered by the high  prices of raw materials, but the costs  of labor have been advanced in many  ways, notably by the scarcity of operatives who are at all skilled.  As showing the actual situation, one  of the largest dealers said that he did  not know where he could go to get 500  cases of ladies' ribbed vests for delivery  within a reasonable time at prices  within 25 per cent, of the figures that  prevailed a short time ago. On all  iladiesLunderwear���this���conditioii^_isire^  flected in a greater or less degree.  Outside of the congested conditions  in the bundle hosiery trade, what has  been said of the underwear trade refers  in a general waj- to the hosiery business. There has beeu overproduction  of 84-needle hose, and while goods are  moving the prices cannot possibly reimburse mills, unless it be that deliverit-s  are coming from cotton costing 40 per  cent, less than cotton costs today. The  tra. ing is   proceeding  from a glutted j J  market. ��  ��  All   lines   of   bleached   hosiery   are Is  scaice in first  hands,   particularly the:"  goods suitable for children.    There is a ; ��  steady trade in   lace  and  embroidered j g  hosiers* iu colored yarns,while all white j 2  lines can   be   disposed   of   as  soon as i��  shown.

In  a new country people are working daily  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis-  trict, and for the improvementof the con -  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live. 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 happenings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Anion v 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.  BOUNDARY CREEK   TIMES  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do  its full and complete share in the upbuilding and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary district. It is not handicapped in its work by any restraining obligations to any party, clique or corporation, but it is free at all times to rise up  and promote the best interests of the City  of Greenwood and its people. To do this  most thoroughly and satisfactorily the  Times must have the support and cooperation of the citizens of Greenwood.  Every effort is being put forth to make  the Times the class of newspaper the  people want. Increasing attention is being  continually paid to mining news, especially of that nature that will interest those  employed in the work as well as those  whose capital is invested in the properties.  With this end in view we aim  to have  As a result of the efforts that have already  been put forth, we believe that an increas-  interest is already being taken in its news  columns, We have evidences of this from  the fact that the subscripiion list is already  growing; the street sales are increasing  weekly and the news dealers find more  demand for each succeeding issue, This is  a satisfactory condition of affairs that acts  in two ways. It increases the revenue of  the circulation department and it makes the  paper a first-class advertising medium for  local business men.  In handling local advertising every effort  if put forth to protect the "Greenwood merchant. The local page is reserved for them  and foreign advertising has been repeatedly  refused because the advertising manager  refused to disturb the positions held by local  advertisers.

THR   PROGRAM,  A lengthy program of events has  been arranged including horse racing,  baseball, mountain climbing, bicycle  races and a hose contest. To the winners of these, attractive prizes will be  awarded.  The Greenwood baseball club expects  to be on the ground to uphold their  good name as successful stick handlers,  against all comers. It is expected that  the ball teams of all the surrounding  towns will be on hand to give the  Greenwood boys a rub. The first prize  for the winners of the ball tournament  is 5100, and the locals have already  planner1, out how they will spend it.  The Greenwood brass band will be  honored guests at Midway.

One of the most serious accidents  that has yet attended mining opeia-  tions at the Nickel Plate, near Medley,  occurred last week when Isaac Doran  and Joseph Dumas were instantly  killed and A. Anderson severely injured. Tlie accident occurred in the  tunnel on the Sunnyside's mine and  was caused by a premature blast. The  men had taken in the powder, fuse and  caps to lode eleven holes, iu a sack.  Whether or not the detonators were  attached to the fuse is unknown*, and  neither is it known whether they had  sprung any holes before loading,which  is the most common cause ot" loading  accidents.  Doran aud Dumas were in at the face  of the tunnel when the blast went off  and were blown back against the wall,  about 40 feet away, where the tunnel  changes direction. The bodies were  frightfully mangled. Anderson, whu  was near the mouth of the tunnel, was  taken out unconscious. Whether he  had been blown against a wail doesn't  appear. He was bleeding from the ear,  which the concussion from the blast  would account for without any other  injury.  Doran leaves a widow aud one son,  aged about 12 3'ears. He had married  twice, and the boy was from the former  marriage. Deceased was born in Scotland and was an old miner in ths  Nickel Plate.    Dumas  was unmarried.  ���Flo wersat-MrsrBer n ai'd 'sr phone A3!  Hazelwood  icecream at the   Pacific  Cafe.

We Want to be Your Grocers  What the Railways Will Do for the  Similkameen Town-  The significance of a railway, or railways, into the Similkameen can hardly  be realized or predicted at the present  time Where it now takes days to reach  with mail will then be done in a few  hours. For instance: Vancouver will  be reached in less than five hours,  vrhich now takes eighty; Nelson and  Greenwood are distant about four days  from Princeton by rail and steamer,  which will be shortened by the V., V.  & E. to within a half dozen hours.  With the completion of the Hill system  to Winnipeg Princeton will be within  two days' touch of the bread basket of  the umpire���the great prairie wheat  belt. These considerations of easy  access to important outside points  along with the proposed junction of  the Tulameen and Similkameen railway routes of the Gre if.

R. would build via  Quilchena creek into the Similkameen  district, then athird railway line would  knock at the gates of Princeton for admission. Eliminating all speculation  regarding proposed routes and railways  the one outstanding feature of greatest  import is the purchase and negotiations  for tracts of land iu and about Prence-  ton by the Great Northern.���Similkameen Star.

CANADA'S   INCREASE  An estimated increase of $S,500,000  in the mineral production of Canada  during the pas1: year, despite a falling  off of $2,000,000 in the Yukon gold output, indicates that Canada is steadily  gaining a place among the mineral  producing countries of the world, and  that her mining development is quite  in line with the advancement observable in every other from of industry.  Au increase in mineral production is  reported from every province showing  that every portion of the Dominion is  sharing in the general advancement.  British Columbia and Nova Scotia  maintain their pre-eminence in the production of the more valuable minerals  but Ontario and Quebec are forcing  their claims to recognition in no uncertain manner. Altegether mining  is apparently in a very healthy condi��  tion, the production having increased  almost fourfold in 10 years. It futures  is great with possibilities as the construction of the Transcontinental railway will make valuable districts accessible in which various kinds-of mineral  deposits lie in unlimited; quantities  awaiting the miner's pick aud shovel,  aud means of tranportatton of the rich  ores from the mines to the market.  ���Mining World.  NORTH FORK RAILWAY  G. N. Will Build a Line to Pathfinder  Mine.  Much interest is being taken in the  development of the North Fork country  where the B. C. Copper Co. recently  bonded the Gloucester group of claims.  Railway construction is naturally of  the first importance, and on this the  Grand Forks Gazette says:  "The Gazette is :n a position to an  nouuee that the Great-Northern railway will extend its system up the  North Fork of the Kettle river in the  immediate future. J. H. Ki.nnedy,  constrii' tion tngineer, arrived in town  from Midway, accompanied by W. F.  Miiliken, assistant engineer, who will  have charge of the survey party. Mr.  Kennedy preferred not to discuss such  matters as the charter under which the  company woul'.l work, though it is  understood that matters have been  arranged in Ottawa. The line will be  constructed from the smelter spur to  the Pithfinder mine this fall, and a  preliminary mine will probably be run  through to Franklin camp Without a  more careful looking over of the ground  Mr. Kennedy would not sav what route  would be taken, but it is lncely that  construction will start in the neighborhood of the smelter dam, and possibly  a new bridge may be erected across the  Kettle north of the present structure,  and the road then run entirely on the  cast side of the river.
