The only Exclusive Dealer in Men's Wear in Greenwood  win  ... The writer was asked to attend the  Dramactic performance . given by St.  Jude's Guild in the Opera House on  Tuesday evening and write it up, and  consented to do so thinking that he  might spend a couple of hours laughing at the amateur performers making  a parody of acting.  - When the curtain went up he was  a little surprised to find that though  the stage was small and absolutely inadequate to put oh a performance,  yet, evidently a master hand had shaped and was directing affairs; but, then,  the writer recalled what Mr. Mantell  said at a little dinner last Fall; when  he was joked about -carrying . around  such poor support, fie said, ' 'how can  one make actors out of men who  ought to be waiters or porters���actors  are born not made." So the writer  wanted to see the would-be actors,  and his second surprise came when  Miss Shaw made her appearance on  the stage as Sylvia in a charming little  one-act play called "A Woman's  Sacrifice''���the dialogue, while a simple little one, gives scope for  tact, judgment and emotion to play  alternately like a . kaleidoscope���and  Miss Shaw fully justified her selection  for the part and demonstrated that she  has latent histrionic ability of no mean  order, and in saying this the writer  draws a comparison from the first efforts of Margaret Anglin and Julia  Arthur, who he saw in little amateur  affairs, when their friends little dreamed that they were destined to be the  brightest stars in the Dramatic world  oil this continent. The third surprise  carrie when Mrs. Stow appeared as  Enid, and the writer wished that  Clyde Fitch was with him as he is  sure Clyde would have insisted on  engaging her on the spot, and giving  the writer a royalty for making the  ���discovery. So when the^ "Spinster^;  Convention.'' arrived for;the next ^pt,  he was jio^n'ger-surprked:atanyth]��g  ,yy-^-?r^J-y"^' i' ���'^������t-*r-^--t-.^g^--*ri  ,and was ready, to .laugh with,instead of  at, the actors, a1^"wished that Belasco  was with, him so he could enjoy how  the Prince of the art of ' staging and;'  costuming would look in wonder as  20 amateurs passed before him dressed  for the part in consummate taste.  That this could be done by twenty  ladies in a little mining town in the  mountains takes the writer's breath  away.  The writer feels that each of the  twenty ladies did their parts so well  that to mention any individually is to  do an injustice to the rest���but as the  space allotted to the writer is short he  will be forced to make only a few  brief remarks of those who had more  extended parts.  Mrs. Cummins, as President, seemed to the manor born, while Mrs.  Venables, * as Treasurer, in the "role  of "Calamity Jane," would have delighted the heart of Mrs. Wiggins, of  the Cabbage Patch. Miss Beldon is  simply wasting her time here, she  ought to be understudy for Mabel  Hite, and would soon have Mabel  hustling to hold her place. Miss  Ward, as "Violet Ann Ruggles,"  made a decided hit as the cheerful  Hotel Joy Killer.  Mrs. Warren and Mrs. Redpath in  the mystic initiation ceremony, did  some pretty team work. Mrs. McArthur, as Sophia Stuck-up," in her  speech on woman's rights, absolutely  carried the writer away,and made him  say to a friend next to him, "that lady  was never forced to do housekeeping  for a living;" while Mrs. McAllister,  as "Belinda Bluegrass," in the role  she assumed on dress reform, with  abbreviated skirts and a jaunty Derby  hat, made the writer think that she  must have seen Miss Bennett in those  roles and had caught the spirit of them.  Eddie Foy should have seen Tees,  and then Eddie would not be so stuck  on himself. As to Hawtrey, well,  what is in a name���everything. Miss  Goddard's dancing of the Highland  Fling made one feel like singing Harry Lauder's song, "She is My Bonnie  Modern  Methods of Mining  Mining  and  Smelting  Successes of the  B.C.  Copper  Company.  Greenwood's   Leading Industry.  The mines and smelters of the  Boundary district have reached a stage  of efficiency which is almost without  a parallel.  Members of the Canadian Mining  Institute and their guests from various  parts of the world who 'recently inspected the B.C Copper fco's Greenwood properties were astounded not  only at the magnitude bf'/fthe operations, but also at the small;! number of  men.required to do the work; and a  glance at the annual report of this  company wilL convince anyone that  a truly remarkable state bf affairs has  been brought about.  The small number of rri��n employed illustrates the saying th|t "necessity is the mother of invention," for  the big low-grade deposits -of ore in  the Boundary have been the cause of  the devising of spetial tfjethods for  mining and treating the satfic.  The   plant** of the   B.��.   Copper  The simplicity of this modern method of mining is almost glaring, but  nevertheless it is the result of long  study, practical knowledge and a continual struggle for the perfecting of  details.  It is at once simple, inexpensive,  and safe;  and taken   in   conjunction  The great future of the Boundary  country has not yet-even been dreamed of by the outside world.  Great as the successes have been  in the mining and treatment of our  tremendous bodies of low-grade ores,  the time is near at hand when the  Boundary mines will stagger the world  with the system of power drilling, and (vvith the immensity of their production  the experienced judgment of the stout- ! . =r=:r���   hearted miner who breaks the ground, ! <t*l    r�� ���*��� ��    /-.  .      ��� .     ^  the splendid record is made of l,600;lThc Bfltl8h  C*1"���^*  C��pper  tons of ore stnt   down   daily   to the Company.  smelter with an average force  of 230  men, including miners,surface-men���  in a word, all hands.  To the mining engineers of the  Boundary district, specialists in the  mining of big bodies of low-grade ore,  who have evolved these modern methods of mining, great credit is due for  this phenomenal success in the  art of  (Engineering and Mining Journal.,  March 15.)  The report of this company for the  fiscal year ended Nov. .*!0, 1908,  shows that during seven months the  mines shipped .-519,527 tons Of ore.  At the smeltery three blast furnaces in  six months handled 321,427 tons of  scientific mining. To the smeltermen j ore, which yielded 5,767,355 lbs. of  specialists in the art  the  economical' copper, 13,507 oz. of gold  and 58,-  The British Columbia Copper Company's Smelter  Co. both at their mines and at Greenwood Smelter .are demonstrations of  of what can be done when necessity  is the driving force.  In the early days of this company  timbering and shovelling were necessary, as that was the practise in vogue  in almost all mines, as it is today in  the large majority.  The cost of both of these factors,  which in a mine of this class would  make all profits disappear, has been  eliminated ftom the B.C. Copper  Co's mines���no timber or shovelling  being done.  The system in the big Boundary  copper mines is to make an opening  in the side of the levels, which, as  the chamber is excavated, is converted  into a gate���known to miners as a  chute.  After this chute bas been built with  its gate easily opened and closed, the  ore in the chamber is broken by means  of drilling and blasting and falls into  the chute, from which it is removed  by simply opening the gate and allowing it to run into cars-  The opening as it is driven widens  out in fan shape and on a gradual incline so that all ore runs down to the  chute wherever broken.  treatment of huge quantities of  material, day in and day out  forcing the big furnaces to the  limit of their capacity is due the success of the second stage of the art of  the extraction of the valuable metal  from their ores.  It would seem that the B.C- Copper Co. has well-nigh reached perfection in the mining and smelting of  each ton of ore for ��2.63, which includes all charges from tne solid ore  in the mine to the finished product.  Under present conditions it is probably impossible to treat this- ore for  any less than it is being treated today,  but we believe that the day is not far  away when the extensive coal area,  but seven miles from Greenwood,  will be opened up, and the smelters  own and operate their own coal mines  in the Boundary.  When one considers that 75 per  cent, of the smelting charges goes for  coke alone, and that it costs S2.25 a  ton freight to bring it here from  the Crow's Nest Pass, we can then  see that by the smelters owning their  own coal mines and making their own  coke right in the district, that $2.00  copper-bearing ore will yet be treated  at a profit in the Boundary country.  CITYCOUNCIL  Mayor Bunting and Aldermen Dixon, Johnson, Meyer and Buckless  were present at the Council meeting  Tuesday evening.  Letters were read from the City  Clerk of Phoenix re pest house for  infectious diseases which it is proposed to build in a location suitable to  both cities; A. D.

Twelve applications were received  for the position of city driver, whicli  on ballot was given to A. G. Pond at  a salary of $110 per month.  S. McConnell was appointed pound-  keeper, pound to be located on lots  6 and 7, block 7, Silver street. Bylaws nos. 1, 2, 5 and 7 were finally  passed.   TRAINMAN KILLED.  William Walker, aged 25 years,  employed as a brakeman in the local  C. P.R. yards, fell in front of moving  cars which he was spotting on the  centre trick close to the depot on .  Tuesday afternoon.  The unfortunate young   man y%SL  "fearfully crushed, a&g^&a uv&e Suiter's hospital at eight o'dpfck the same  *** &Y~ "  evening.  The mother of the deceased lives  in Scotiane, and the remains were  taken to Nelson the following day in  charge of the Brotherhood of Railway  Trainmen.  A trip t�� Sco6t's Poultry yards  at Denoro would convince you  that the Boundary country is becoming famous for poultry as  well as for enormous productions  of metals.  Here you my see "Paddy," the  champion Buff Orpington of B.C.,  and a full brother to the first-  prize wirjn*��r at Madison Square.  New York, who heads a pea of  show birds that have never been  beaten; aud "Spick," a handsome  Buff Leghorn Cockerell who is  valued at $100, and will be seen  at the A-Y.P. Exposition at  Seattle in September.  Mr. Scott is devoting 160 acres  to chickens and fruit, and the  fact that a fancier of his reputat-  ioa considers  the   Boundary dis-  204 oz. silver.  The cost per ton of ore handled  including all charges from ore in place  to sale of the metal products was $2.63  per ton; the cost of producing, refining and marketing per pound of  fine copper, after crediting expenditure  with value of gold and silver realized,  was 9,996 cents.  It seems to us that this cost of  $2.63 per ton of ore is probably the  lowest on record. It is the more remarkable in view of the high cost of  coke at Greenwood. On the other  hand, a favorable factor is the self-  fluxing character of the ore, the latter  constituting practically 100 per cent,  of the furnace charge. But however  the conditions are regarded, the result  reflects very   high  credit  upon J. E.  McAllister,   general   manager ofAej^t a locatlottemiBeilUy suitable  company,   and ^ especially   manifests j for tfae raising of high.cjassbird8i  his success in effecting a coordination  of the work of the different depart  ments in such a  maximum efficiency all around. It is  certainly extraordinary that it has been  possible to mine and smelt a ton of  ore for $2.63, including freight on  the metallic products to market, and  refining and selling of the same.  should be more than  an   encouragement   to   those   who   intend  way as to secure j tQ ^ up poultrv_raisirJg.   a,ong  with fruit culture in   the    Boundary.  cote  are onlv   staying  here   because   the  mountain air agrees with them.

It hurt the scribe's  feelings to see him play the role next  day of agent to a cheap corpora'ion  like the C P. R., but was consoled on  second thought by the fact that we  mortals are forced to play minor roles  and that is to see Hunter's great play  properiy staged and supported by this  company, and there would be nothing  more to ask for or expect; the gamut  of human emotions would be exhausted.

Mr. C W. Bowerbank, of  I 126 Denison Avenue, Toronto, says :���  "Not long ago my baby's face broke  out in an eruption. The spots would  craek and be very irritating and sore.  At other times they itched fearfully,  and caused the child to scratch and rub  thus making the sores very inflamed  ana painful. I tried alt- sorts of ointments and salves, but they somehow  did not seem able to remove the trouble.  Zam Buk proved very different'and a  few applications gave tlje child relief.  The sores are now healed completely.  "Since that time my little daughter  has had occasion ��� to use Zam Buk for  sksn trouble. She broke out in blotches  on her hands and arms, and in her case  also Zam Buk effected a cure.  We now keep Zam Buk handy as a  household balm, and de not intend to  be without it.
