VICTORY FOR  MOTHER LODE  terchant  The second baseball match between  Greenwood  and  the  Mother  Lode  mine, which took place last Sunday at  the Mother  Lode  mine,   was a distinct   improvement   on   the   former  game.    Both teams showed the good  effect of practice.    A large  number  of Greenwood citizens convoyed the  town team to the Mother  Lode, and  at a little  after 2  o'clock  the-battle  commenced to the accompaniment of  vigorous tooting and  encouraging remarks from  the  onlookers, both fair  and   masculine.    In  the  first inning  Geo. Thompson made the initial run  for Greenwood, while Mother   Lode  succumbed to the magic twirls of the  only McKelvie.    The second inning  Greenwood  scored  another  run,  to  the credit of McKelvie, and withttieir  townsmen two runs ahead, the Greenwood fans went wild.  Mother Lode's  opportunity  came  with their second  inning and Tommy Lyons and Martin  both made the home plate amidst the  cheers of the brown and   whiter thus  tieing the city team.    Then followed  some  more. excellent   ball   and  the  game  proceeded without a score  for  either side until the~sixth inning, when  Greenwood   having  failed  to  score,  owing   to    Paddy's    able    twisters,  Mother Lode led  off with  Lyons at  the bat, and a procession of runs followed.     Lyons,   Martin,   Addyj,   E.  Mitchell, Smith and Patterson all.ad-  ding   to   Greenwood's    discomfort.  Thus ended a splendid game ofygood  ball, a victory for Mother  Lodelof 8  to 2. _  |f '  After the game B.

A recitation by Paul Penticost,  chiefly notable for the wide range of  voice displayed by that gentleman, was  much enjoyed.  A recitation by T. B. Cave, in  which he gave us the " Charge of the  Light Brigade" in different dialects,  was considered by the audience one  of the best numbers on the program.  A dissertation on " School Discipline" by the Rev. Mr. Gillcrist, also  had its full share of admirers.  Mrs. Hardy and Miss Kerr charmed  us with that delightful duet, "Hunting Tower," while Mr. Crawford in  his habitant recitation about the " Nile  Expedition," showed the audience  what imitation ought to be.  Finally, Mrs. Hardy's voice fairly  rippled in "The Brook." J  The second part of the program  consisted of a play in three acts, entitled "When Your Wife's Away."  Mr.   Armstrong T. B.

EARLY  Navigation is expected to open  May 1 on the Kootenay and Arrow lakes.  Transportation difficulties in  Alaska are to be solved by the  use of the monorail system.  The Boyes system is to be used.  Boyes' plan as demonstrated in  his workings is not far different  from the Brennan monorail.  The cars run on one electrified  rail, 11 inches wide and 22 inches  high. Each car is built in five  different sections and built in  such a manner that the joints between the sections are movable  and a much shorter curve can be  made.  THE LE ROI  As it is understood that the  diamond drill contract at the Le  Roi is about completed, there is  more or less speculation as to  what the result has been, as the  company has kept very quiet in  the matter. Over 6,000 feet of  work has been done in the lower  levels of the property, and while  it is known that considerable ore  has been located, it is understood  that it is of rather a low grade.  FINEST FIR  Right Rev. John Dart,  bishop  of the Anglican diocese of New  Westminster, is very seriously ill  at his residence, having been  stricken with paralysis last week.  The Fraser River Lumber Co.,  have purchased 75,000 acres of  timber from the Chemanius Lumber company in Comax valley,  Vancouver Island. The consideration is $4,000,000, and the  traot is said to be the finest area  of Douglas fir in existence at 5  billion feet.  A coquette takes the desire to  please for the need of loving.

This shows a weekly average of 24 sentences and'/11 executions. The figures for 1909 are  1,167 sentences and 545 executions  and show a substantial decrease  on 1908, for which the returns  were 1,959 and 792 respectively.  Besides these figures, which are  official, many executions have to  be recorded of persons who were  not tried at all, but were hanged  by the order of various governors-general.  Aids Nature  The great success of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis-  oovery in curing weak stomachs, wasted bodies, weak  fangs, and obstinate and lingering coughs, is based on  the recognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden  Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with body-building, tissue-repairing, muscle-making materials, in condensed and concentrated form. With this help Nature  supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest  food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering  obstinate coughs. The "Discovery" re-establishes the  digestive ond nutritive organs in sound health, purifies  ���nd enriches the blood, and nourishes the nerves���in  short establishes sound vigorous health.  // your dealer offers something "lust as good.**  .

WEDNESDAY, MAY 4  Now that the Wednesday half  holiday is an arcomplished fact,  commencing with the first Wednesday in May, a fitting celebration of that day, by way of having football and baseball matches  at the Greenwood ball grounds  and any other outdoor sports that  can be arranged, is being spoken  of as a probabilitv. Excellent  harmony prevails between the  Smelter and Mother Lode teams,  in spite of the beatings receiyed  by the smoke eaters at the hands  of the mine whirlwinds, and a  similar mutual regard exists between the town ball twirlers and  the enthusiastic diamond exponents on the hill. So let there  be a grand opening day, May 4,  to further demonstrate the good  work done by thc local Athletic  associations, on the first Wednesday half holiday of the year. It  is up to thc whole town to be  there, to cheer and root, and encourage this excellent institution.  It  would  be a good  line for the  A shrewd observer of human  nature once said that the public  likes to be humbugged. It does,  to a limited extent, but that is no  reason for encouraging humbugs,  especially the shady varieties that  should rather be classed as downright swindles. To this latter  class belong those schemes and  devices, by the aid of which, according to the claims of their pro-  moters, auy one can locate bodies  gold, silver and copper ores, also  hidden treasure.  The magnetic needle is some  times used for locating bodies of  ores that possess magnetic prop<  erties, such as mag-netite. This  use of the magnet is, however,  based upon purely scientific principles, witches and spooks having  nothing to do with it,  There will probably always be  people who will try to work the  credulous public by holding up  the lure of wealth that those who  invest early can find with certainty and with little effort. The  only way ore was ever thus found  was by blundering upon it, The  prospector who really wants to  find a mine stands the best chance  if he goes into a likely country  and makes an intelligent search  for it.  If there were a sure way of locating ores by the mere investment of $25 or $50 or so in a  piece of apparatus, it goes without saying tbat well managed  mining companies would not go  to thousands and hundreds of  thousands of dollars of expense  to attain the same object.  A practical and theoretical  knowledge of the geology of ore  deposits is the best equipment for  a prospector to insure success.  Forked sticks and magic wands  have no place in his pack.  We would advise the prospector,  who would experiment with such  humbug instruments for locating  minerals, such as gold, silver,  copper and hidden treasures, to  trust rather to his luck, a pick  and shovel and a frying pan.

Stevens, Houghton, Mich., is just received\ This  work, which has become a standard  authority on the subject, for the entire globe, has, in its latest edition,  1,628 octavo pages, containing considerably more than a million words,  and, in addition   to the miscellaneous  chapters, lists and   described   no less  i  than 7,751 copper  mines and copper  mining companies, in all parts of the  world, descriptions ranging from two  or three lines in the case of companies that have died recently, to sixteen pages in the case of one of the  largest mines���a mine, by the way,  that employs some seven thousand  men, and has paid dividends of considerably more than a hundred million  dollars. The mine descriptions are  the same as in the preceding volume,  except that upwards of eight hundred  new titles have been added, covering  descriptions not contained in any  previous edition. The chapter of  statistics, containing upwards of forty  tables, treating of copper from almost  every conceivable standpoint, has been  fully revised, and brought as nearly as  possible to date.  The miscellaneous chapters of the  book, twenty-four in number, treat of  the subject of copper from a great  variety of view points, including the  history, chemistry, mineralogy, metallurgy and uses of the metal, and  this section of the book also has chapters devoted to substitutes, alloys,  brands and grades, and a copious  glossary.  The plan on which the book is sold  remains the same as for seven years  past, the publisher sending the book  by mail, fully prepaid, to any address  ordered, without advance payment of  any sort, and subject to approval after  a week's inspection. The price is  $5.00. That this unusually liberal  plan has proved successful is shown  by the statement of the publisher that  net losses through returned copies and  defaulted payments are less than four  per cent. Anyone interested in the  subject of copper, as producer, consumer or investor in shares, should  write to Mr. Stevens for a copy of  the Copper Handbook on the unusually liberal terms noted.

SLIGHT HOPE  "The Montreal Star is receiving letters from various  parts of  Ontario   stating  that   Canadian  Marconi stock is still   being  sold  to people in the rural districts  at  $5 a share.    As  is  well known,  Canadian Marconi can be bought  in the open market  at  gl.60  to  $1.70 a share, and there is reason  to believe that the genius who is  selling the stock to the ha\seeds  at $5 is buying the  stock himself  at current prices. The purchasers  are, of course ignorant of the fnci  that   they arc  paying too much  for stuck, aud it would appear to  be the duty of  every  newspaper  to publish daily the market  price  of Canadian Marconi.    It is said  that'the   artist   who  is selling  the stock  in  Ontario is not connected in any   way  with   George  Munroe, who  is one of the   first  to launch Canadian   Marconi  on  the public at $5 a share.

SUN IN ERUPTION  Strange eruptions have appeared on the sun according to a  statement by Prof. Frost, director of the Yerkes observatory  at Williams Bay. The eruptions show from the surface of  the sun like sky rockets. They  are easily visible at the edge of  the disc. One of them shot out  |p; a length of 150,000 miles, as  near as could be estimated. The  mass is luminous, not dissimilar  [.io a comet. Before it had disappeared it had reached a distance  from the sun of about 250,000  Ithiles. The eruptions are probably caused by the release ot pres-  ure on some - particular spot on  [the sun.  " Prof. Frost said the disturbances probably account for the  brilliant displays which have  been seen recently.  Zam-Buk in 3 Accidents.  The condition of Capt. R.

The plumber refused to pay  the $5000 damages which the jury  awarded me." "How did you  get it." "I garnisheed his week's  wages.'-  It would seem that Zam-Buk. the  famous healing balm we hear so highly  spoken of everywhere, is particularly  useful in the family circle. A report  sent by Mrs. E. Davey, 786 Ellice  Ave., Winnipeg, will illustrate this.  She says: " My little boy. of three,  while playing, fell from a high verandah to the ground, cutting his forehead  badly. Instead of calling a doctor who  would undoubtedly have put in a number of stitches, I bathed the wound  well, and applied Zam-Buk. The little  fellow, although suffering keenly, soon  had relief from his pain. In the course  of three weeks, by applying Zam-Buk  daily, the wound in his forehead was  nicely healed.  " Since then I have also used Zam-  Buk for a boil which came on my cheek  and which proved very painful and  looked unsightly. Zam-Buk soon drew  the boil to a head and it then quickly  banished it.  ''Another time my baby was scalded  on her left thigh and calf of leg with  boiling water. Thin was a severe scald  and the child suffered cruelly, scream  ing from pain. Directly it was done I  thought to use Zam-Buk, as we had a  box in the house, and spreading some  on lint I wrapt up the baby's limb.  Next morning she rested much easier  and I applied a .fresh bandage with  Zam-Buk, I kept this treatment up daily  and was rewarded by seeing a great  improvement eacb time I dressed the  wound. In a very short space of time  the scalds were nicely healed.  "I cannot recommend this wonderful  healing preparation too highly for family use, and I have such great faith in  its healing powers that my house is  never without a box."  For all skin injuries and diseases,  piles, eczema, salt rheum and face  sores Zam-Bub is absolutely unequalled. 50c. box all druggists and stores, or  post free from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto,  for price.
