A painting may be a  fancy sketch, a photograph can only be  the representation of what actually is.  The man who looks forward may be  unduly optimistic and see things as he  would wish them, or he may be unduly  pessimistic and see things as he fears  they will be. The man who takes a  sweep of the backward way, however,  sees things as they actually have been,  and such a view frequently brings out  surprisingly happy results.  Retrospect is like tie photograph, a  faithful witness to an existent fact.  The writer is in a retrospective mood  today, and from the high ground of  the present turns his vision to the upward way of the past. Eight years is  not long in the life of any community.  Particularly true is this of a mining  camp. In that time millions of feet of  lumber may be cut down in the forest*  cut up by the mill and carried away to  the city and the developing industry  be instrumental;in converting* wilderness into a thriving milling center.     .

But in  a mining district headway can only be  made so fast, regardless of resources  at command. There are physical limitations to progress, no matter how  prodigal capital may wish to be. Only  so many men can be used iu a shaft,  only so many may work in tunnel or  drift. Work on a given property must  proceed from its initial, and for a long  time the number of men employed  must necessarily be limited. As the  main shaft grows deeper drifts may be  ������uui and more-men employed. As the  tunnel lengthens numbers may be  multiplied. Slow growth can only be  -the^la w^-iu=lode���min iugy^whereas^in'  clearing the wilderness each tree is an  opportunity for a man if need be, and  on the prairie an army of men and  b irses may work side by side.

The writer first visited the Boundary eight years ago. From Marcus,  the way by vthe lumbering stage of the  day was tedious and tiresome. ;No  Pullman cars rolled into Greenwood  and Phoenix and Grand Forks and  Midway over the Canadian Pacific. No  Great Northern railway touched  point in the Boundary. Grank  looked decrepit aud dirty, Greenwood  was new and raw, Phoenix was wilderness.  On the banks of the Kettle riv.er,  where now the Granby, with its eight  furnaces, smelts 3,000 tons of oredaily,  tlie fisherman plied his fly, and where  the great miues of the company, covering hundreds of acres, employ hundreds of men, the woodchopper then  carried on a desultory labor.  The Mother Lode had only the beginning of a shaft and a dozen ineii or  or less, while the site of the B. C:  Copper Co.' magnificent works was lin-  tenaled and the owner found no buyers  for his lots.  The hotels of the country were mostly  log, and in no sense luxurious. Not a  chartered bank did business in the district. Kerosene, foul-sni'-lling and ex��  pensive, dimly lit tip the more pretentious dwellings, while the tallow dip  was good enough for most people.  MODERN CITIES. ������ ��� 7 7  Where there were shanties or tin-:  cleared lots, today stand hotels'with  modern appointments. Electric lights  make the streets of the towns, and the  surroundings of mine and smelter light  as day, while power to turn Wheels and  drive machinery lias been brought a'  hundred' miles across mountain and;  range and deep ravines.       ���       7 ;  Then the checks of the business men,  uubanked for months, were the currency of the district, where today i-  dosen banks, brauche's and agencies do;  a profitable business.  There was little in sight then, but  faith was big and hope was strong. A  few courageous ofres were developing  an industry and incidentally making a  habitable and 'prosperous country.  Where these men lived for the most  part on money obtained elsewhere, today the district's monthly pay roll is a  quarter of a million dollars, wealth  dug from the mountains, and -the pro  ductive era of the district has just begun.  ENTERPRISING BUSINESS MEN.  "^TlfirlargVrtnisiness hoiisesTbf Hun��er-~  Kendrick, Rendell & Co., Russell-  Law-Caulfield Co., T. M. Gulley & Co.  and A. L. White & Co., carrying an  aggregate stock of say $300,000, have  beeu the outgrowth of improving con-  ditions. Few of the large banks of  Canada, now represented in the district, had heard of Greenwood ten  years ago, and none of them dreamed  then of doing business here today on  the deposits of the people.  Churches and schools, and social and  improvement clubs have arisen to  meet the demands of an improving  people. Greenwood provides out of her  civic funds to assist a band and a reading room, because the people ask for  such improving conditions. Hospitals,  with modern equipment and with  heroic, self-sacrificing ones to minister  to the sick and needy, stand as monuments to the mercy of man and open,  hospitable doors to both sick and injured.  What has taken place in low grade  mining iu these years, will to all ap  appearances be many times multiplied  in a similar period in the future, and  will doubtless be duplicated in the high  grade mines of Greenwood. Of high  grade mines we had none eight years  ago, while today they are capturing  first prizes iu the* mining competitions  at the fairs.  "Progress," iu large letters, is written across the face of things in the  Boundary, and in the light of already  accomplished facts, one must be dull or  blind who cannot read the promise of  the future. W. G. Galnce.  AN IMMENSE OUTPUT  Boundary Will Produce 30,*>  000,000 Lbs. of Copper.  DOMINION    COPPER    CO.  Will Produce 8.500.000 Lbs. Alone.  ���W. C. Thomas Tells of tbe Improvements Now Going On.  Lamp oil for use in safety lamps are  of two kinds, viz., miueral aud vegetable, and all oils at present iu use  are of these two classes or mixtures of  such classes'  W. C. Thomas, smelter superintendent of the Dominion Copper Co., predicts that the output of Copper in the  Boundary district this year shoitid be  over 30;000,000 pounds.    ' '     ���    '  H�� says: "As is well known, Ihe  Boundary ores are of extremely low  grade, but the character of the deposits  is such that the ore can be mined at a  remarkably low cost, principally by  quarrying. The ores contain about 26  pounds of copper to the ton of rock,  and gold and silver values average  about $1.50 per ton. A smelter recovery  of from 21 to 23 pounds of copper is  secured and practically ail'the gbfil'aud  silver values. Low milling costs,laud  the fact' that these ores are largely  self fluxing, enables the smelter treatment of a large tonnage per furnace.  "The Granby Co. has demonstrated,  without question, that copper hiiniug  in the Boundary is avery profitable  operation, even on a low copper market.  It is figured that even with cdpper.  selling at 13 cents per. pound (a price  not likely for some time to come) there  is a profit of at least $1 per ton in  ���treating these ores.  ' "The Dominion Copper Co. his been  in operation under the present management.for nine months, but we have our  mines well developed, with ore blocked  out for more than ten years^it the 'rate  of 1,300 tons per day, a good smelting  plant which we are now materially  enlarging , and 3750,000 cash available  for the treasury.  "With bile new furnace our output wilt  be increased 700 tons per day, which  will give us a. total capacity of l-,300  tons ptr day, or an absolute average ot  1,200 tons allowing for shut downs..     '  "This new; furnace will be the largest  that has been shippeel into the boundary country, being 225 inches by 46  inches, with a depth of 18 feet betweeft  floors. It is equipped with the Girbui  hot top blast, and will be fed automatically by side dump cars. The furnaces  w i n"c*_ecf =a^W^  of about $100 per day, Which is a matter of $36,000 jier year, or one-third of  a cent per pound on our proposed increased output.  "With our new furnace we shall be  able to produce from 8,000,000 to S,'^)0r  000 pounds of copper per annum. '  "At present, the smelter'and roi tie*  are being operated by steam poneri  We will shortly be operating entirely  with electric, power, at a saying ia  power costs of about $100,000 per annum.  "With the installation of o'tir new  furnace we expect to produce copper at  a cost of not over 8 cents per pound,  t". o. b., Boundary.  "We do not intend, however, to be  satisfied with a production of 8,500,000  pounds of copper per annum. Our  ���nines are capable of producing the  equal of any company iu the Boundary,  aud, as we have recently purchased  additional property at our smelter site",  there is every reason to anticipate that  our capacity will be still further in-  iTeased,"  LIQUORS STOLEN  About 5 o'clock Thursday morning,,  the Veudome hotel, in Anaconda, was  broken into and the supply of liquid  refreshments stole'u. About 4 o'clock  the proprietor, Pete Thompson, went  to bed, and when his assistant got up  at 5:30 he found the door burst open  aud the bar dismantled. About $5d  worth of goods were stolen. Mr.  Thompson notified the provincial police, but as the burglars left no cities  behind, it will be difficult to track  them.  At the time of the burglary there  was a deal ou for the transfer of ihe  license from Mr. Thompson to Mike  Chafrk. ^^Xe^BmmlSt^^  ���^^���^liVii'X'.r.  ��� -*isb  l��nj  Cbe  Boundary Creek Times  Issued every Trldav  BY   Tilli  Boundary Creek Priuting and Publishing  CO., LlMITEll,  Duncan Rohs Prksidknt  H. 0.

RAILWAY LEGISLATION.  The News,, of Toronto, .the alleged independent newspaper, has  seen fit to suggest that certain  western members of the Dominion House of Commons are allied  with corporation interests because  they "fathered" certain private  bills. The article was copied and  commented on by the Columbian  of New Westminster, and recop-  ied -by the Gazette of Grand  Forks. The member for Yale-  Cariboo is charged with having  been responsible for four private  bills during, the recent session,  and Messrs. Galliher and Mac-  pherson with an equal or greater  number.  So far as the legislation with  which the member for Yale-Cariboo was concerned, its history is  briefly told. D. M. Eberts, ex-  attorney general, and a promiuent  Conservative., applied, upon behalf of himself and others, for a  charter for a railway" running  northward Gfrom Ashcroft to the  Yellow Head pass. The. legislation was in accordance with the  model railway bill. The road intended to be built was exclusively  in the district of Yale-Cariboo,  and as it is the custom in such  cases, the member for the district  was asked to take charge of the  ���bill. He did so, and the bill went  through its various stages without opposition. Sir Chas Hib-  bert Tupper was interested in a  similar charter and it was also  passed without opposition. The  Boundary, Kamloops and Cariboo  Central Railway company, com-  prrsed of Kamloops people, asked  for an extension.of time and certain trifling amendments, and  these were passed without oppo-  ~si BouT ���arfd���t'lfif"' 'Hot"TCirTjiue""  asked for certain amendments  which were passed, in a similar  way, and under -which construction is being pushed up the North  Fork of the Kettle River. In all  these matters, so far as.the member for Yale-Cariboo knows, not  a siugle-dollar was spent outside  of the regular fees charged by  parliament. Does the Gazette  suggest that under existing conditions surrounding railway legislation the member for Yale-  Cariboo, or any other member,  should refuse to take charge of  legislation affecting his own district?  The truth is, thai railway legislation at Ottawa is more or less  of a farce and an unmitigated  nuisance. There is no good  reason why a general railway act  should not be passed, and any  oue or company of men desirous  of doing so, should be allowed to  build a railway in accordance  with the general railway act and  without going to the expense of  securing legislation which always  conforms to a model railway act.  The member for Vale-Cariboo  has supported every piece of railway legislation that came before  parliament on the ground that  tbe mere permission to build a  railway should not be considered  of any particular value, and that  this permission should never be  refused.  Mr. Galliher is given credit for j  having been connected with a  greater number of railway bills  than other western members during the recent session. These  bills were largely C. P: R. legislation asking for extension of  time aad amendments to existing  legislation for their various roads  in Kootenay district. After his  stand on the V-., V. & E. bill, two  years ago, it is scarcely possible  that the C, P. R. is particularly  friendly to Mr. Galliher, but as  the legislation they desired  affected his district,- ho was asked  to take charge of the bills antl  did so.  In the absence of. a general  railway act there have beeu numerous applications i for railway  legislation iu the growing west.  The number will largely increase,  and because western members interest themselves in securing.the  necessary legislation to build railways, neither the News, the Columbian nor the Gazette have  any grounds for suggesting graft  when thev are only doing their  duty to the west and their constituents.  THE ALLUR1 NO NORTH.  To show the extent of immigration from the United States  to the north country, a valued  correspondent of the Times sends  the following* interesting account  of the movement -through the  Similkameen:  "The familiar sight of the typical  prairie schooner, with occasional variations, a few mornings ago, attracted  much attention from the settlers near  Five Mile. The advance guard of a  large party of ex-Idaho settlers were  seen coming along the Similkameen  road near Princeton. Being interrogated as to their objective point they  stated that they were bound for the  '54-40' country, but their intentions  were peaceful. They were going to  wrestle with agricultural conditions,  and having had previous acquaintance  with the country by means of a I rusty  representative, they felt well satisfied  that they were making a material improvement by the change. In the advance   party   were  six wagons���men,  women and children, all experienced !  western settlers. A procession of thirty  wagons was following. All were from  Southern Idaho, where the laud conditions were not favorable. They stated  to our informant that this exodus was  the beginning of au important movement of the western continental population from Idaho, Washington and  other overdone states of the west. Be-  I ween,'thirty and forty head of horses,  in addition to those iu use, accompanied  tht* advance party,  Their advance agent had selected a  good slock country along the line of  tliet!. T. P., and when asked if any  movement of prospectors and mining  men were likely to follow this immigration,:, they said it was very likely  that \\'c.x\ seasnii then* would be a  movement of (.hit- class. ��� The. party  were heading fur the Cariboo road viu  Ashcroft."  Unscrupulous American real  estate manipulators are swindling  the public in connection with real  estate speculations in the vicinity  of the western terminus of the  G. T. P. Recently the Spokesman-  Review contained a. full page  "ad" offering, lots for sale in  Port Simpson, the western terminus of the G. T. P. Port Simpson is not the western terminus  of the G. T. P. The advertisers  know this, and a newspaper of  the standing* of the Spokesman  should warn its readers against  the advertisement which it has  published.  Wounds. Bruises and Burns.  Ely applying an antiseptic dressing to  wounds, iii'tiises, .burns and. like injuries before inflammation sets in,  they may he healed without maturation  and in about one third die time required  by the old treatment. This is the  greatest discovery and triumph of modern-surgery. Chamberlain's Pain Balm  acts on this same ' principle. Tt is an  antiseptic and when applied lo such  injuries, causes them to heal very  quickly. Tt also allays the pain and  soreness an 1 prevents any danger of  blood poisoning.

Here is one more instance: A  smn.ll box weighing at least four  pounds, was billed 80 cents from Vernon to Pen ticton, perhaps 70 miles, or  a five hours' run by steamer. The  same package was carried by Snod-  'g-raas'stage to Greenwood, 8s miles of  the hardest road in the country, for two  bits.  1900  woi  f.-1."��53  231,7(i-;  2-17  1,731  S..140  9'J,034  AINSWORTH DISTRICT  Review of Mining Operations in Greenwood's Rival Camp.  It will be remembered that the Ainsworth district won the prize at the  Nelson fair for the best display of ores  representing a district. At the Spokane fair, however, the Boundary display won the silver cup in competition  with the states of Washington, Idaho  and Oregon, besides British Columbia.  The Boundary and Ainsworth districts  are doing-much to advertise the mineral resources of British Columbia. In  the" Ainsworth district the Black  Diamond Tunnel company has its' long  crosscut tunnel now in 2,600 feet and  has cut four good ledges containing  high grade silver, The first vein encountered in the tunnel was what is  known as the Highlander ledge, owned  by the company of that name. This  ledge was crosscut -it a depth of more  than 1,000 feet below its apex.  The Highlander company has run a  drift700 feet on the vein, encountering  a fine shoot of galena ore 400 feet long  and from two to five feet iu width  Hundreds of tons of ore have beeu  sloped from the galleries above the  drift and. sent to Nelson, where it has  netted above all expenses, $10 a ton.  Tri^AlbionTon^tl^  'feet north from the tunnel, has-made  arrangements to use the Black Diamond  tunnel and the Albion company is  drifting on the vein into its property.  Some ore from the 340-foot level of the  Albion may soon be shipped. This ore  lies 600 feet above the drift from the  long tunnel, and at that depth is three  feet wide.  The cost of transporting Highlander  and Albion ore from the tunnel to the  lake will be small, for each company  owns a gravity cable tramway.  The minors of the Kooten.i.v lake  district have begun cleaning up camp  preparatory to taking out. the rich mineral- with which the hills of that section are ribbed.  The cause of the resumption of min  ing activity there can be attributed  largely to the iucreased market price  for lead and silver, and lo the reduction in smelting charges in British  C_lii_ibia. A few years ago it cost S20  a ton for freight and treatment, while  today $12 a ton will cover the expenses.  This rate can have another big slice  shaved off before the miners of Briti ;h  Columbia have a service equal to that  of the United States.  The Bluebell mine, on the east sido  of Kootenay lake, is working a large  force of men, quarrying out ore which  is all shipped to their Pilot Bay con  centra tor. The Bluebell is probably  one of the largest lead properties in  the district, for it has a gigantic vein  of almost solid galena from 18 to 25  feet in width.

'  The Krao, located by A. D. Wheeler  in 1885, and still owned bv him, is attracting much attention on account of  the large amount of wire and ruby  silver it carries. About 12 tons of ore  are being shipped daily, which averages, without concentrating, $150 a  ton, and even though the' lowest workings are but 100 feet below the surface.  The Number 1, conceded to be the  highest grade mine in the district, is  now preparing to ship.  A number of the  mines in  the dis-?  trict���the United,   Maestro,   Spokane  Trinket,    Little    Donald    and    Black  Diamond���are   being    worked    under  lease, and much  ore is  being shipped  from the surface, though  Utile work is  being done on them at depth.   Frank  McCullough of Spokane, owns the Spo  kaue and the Trinket; and Number 27,  Jeannette and the Keystone are owned  by A. L,.  White,  and  J. M.   Moore of  Spokane,   who   are   now   negotiating  with parties who desire to secure the  properties by lease and bond.  =._7The Maestro, _under lease._ J9___f__\__  SIR CHAS. CLIFTON BROWNt  King, has t< ken out eight carloads of  ore in the last 60 days that will net him  $6,000, the expense for mining being  only $4 pei ton. The Spokane and  Trinket, under lease to George Barn-  hart, are hauling about eight tons of  clean ore per day to the wharf.  NEW ELECTRIC LAMP  The Osram electric lamp is a new in  vention on the German market undergoing test. It replaces the carbon tila-  nieut for glow lamps by tine wires of  wolfram, which are claimed to employ  only one-third of the energy heretofore  required. A test at Charlottenburg  showed that after use of 1,000 hours  there, was an average loss of brilliancy  of 6.3 per cent in the case of 25 candle  power lamps, and 3.6 per cent in the  32-candle power lamps. Of the 16 la nips  under test 11 were not damaged, and  were capable of con tinned use. This  new lamp shares with the Osmium  lamp the drawback that it can only be  used hanging downward, btt^ a technical writer says that it may be assumed with certainty that this disadvantage will be overcome.  At the arsenic plant of the Anaconda  Copper company, Montana, eleven to  eighteen tons of arsenic are recovered  monthly from eleven tons of tine flue  dust put through daily. The product  is sold readily at 6 cents to 7 cents per  pound. The workmen are protected  against the poisonous effect of the  fumes by the use of cotton in nose and  ears, by aspirators worn over, the  mouth and nose, by not working hard  enough to perspire, by washing carefully after working and by anointing  exposed portions of the face with  freshly precipitated ferric hydroxide  rubbed on with the lingers.  Cured of Bilious Headache by Bileans*  Sir Chas. Clifton Browne, who has  toured considerably in Canada, interviewed at his Deal (Kent), residence,  admitted that.he had reaped very great  benefit from Bilean."..  ,, He said: "I have no objection to you  stating that I found Bileans a. very  fine medicine for biliousness, headache  and digestive catroubles generally. I  suffered frequently from bilimts headache, and nothing that.I have ever yet'  tried did me so. much good as Bileans.  I believe they are a good thing attct  worthy of-success!" ���  In those last few words Sir Charles  aptly summarizes Bileans: "A good  thing." They are compounded from  purely vegetable essences, and are the  best possible remedy obtainable for  headache, debility, dizziness, indigestion, etc. They also operate gently ou  the bowels, curing eonstip ition, piles,  etc. vThey correct female irregularities  and ailments, pains in the loins and  bearing down pains. They tone up the  whole 'system aud enable it to throw off  colds, chills, rheumatism, etc. Anaemic and pale-faced women and girls  will find them a veritable boon.

"Two years ago Our little girl had a  touch of pneumonia.which left her with  an awful cough. Sliehad spells of coughing, just like one with the whooping  cough and some thought she would not  get well at all. We gut a bottle of  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which  acted like a charm.

Ketailing- today is a broader business  than it has ever been-before. A merchant, in even a small town must measure himself with merchants hundreds  of miles awa}*. Consequently he must  adopt many of their methods and create  new plans of his own.  He must be resourceful to a degree  he never has been before. This must  be for the reasons g-iven above. .When  he  has   for   his  competitors men   who  intense in their business to the hijrhest  ���. r*  degree he cannot afford  to let his business drift and expect results.  Too many men have entered the retail  business believing- that it is an easy  vocation. They think if they canse-  cure a store room and put a few g-oods  into it they will get rich. True, it is  easy to rent a room if one has a few  dollars and a few hundred or a few  thousand dollars, will secure a stock of  merchandise.  While a merchant is selecting- his  initial stock he will be surprised what  a cordial greeting- he will receive from  those d.siring to sell stocks of goods,  but after the store is rented and the  stock is in the real battle begins. Then  there must be experienced resourceful  ness, else the trade does not come and  the expenses pile up. The signs of the  times are that the merchants who  deserve recognition by the public will  continue to develop, while those who  are adventurers and without experience  in creative ability, in fact those who  haye no talent whatever for retailing,  will be eliminated.  CREDIT.  The question of credit���that is,whom  you should trust and whom you should  not:���is a question of the greatest im7  portance tn any business, more so now  in this age of inflation than ever  before.  You will have losses; the best and  most conservative houses do, and'  always will. Losses seem to be as  certain1 and-sure lo happen as death or'  taxes, hut your- aim must he to keep  them down lo the lpwest possible  figure.  You will find tliat there ��� will be a  certain amount of uncertainty in some  of the'tredit you extend, but let these  .-.rises be few and far between.  THK  CREDIT  .MAXAGKI-.  The extension' of credit has today  developed into a science, and among  large commercial, jobbing and manufacturing' houses, one man, called a  credit manager, is employed to watch;  this end of the business alone.  A credit maii, to be proficient, must  ���'Je: thoroughly acquainted with the laws  of the territory in which his house is  dealing, and must keep fully posted on  the new laws or amendments to: laws  and changes.  A wise''credit manager \\ill always  surround himself with other safeguards  foi the prevention of losses by reason  of bad debts. He will, if he be alert,  _irgai_izo^tJiei_vaj-io.us^hoti.sesJiL,his-owti,  liiie into an association for the exchange of credit iu formation, by which  organization,,he and the other members  can readily exchange with one another  all kinds of information pertaining to  a customer's' methods of running his  business.  OPTIMISM IN MINING  If an argu iiieiil were ticoilrd to prove  lhai optimism is an inherent element  in the make up of humanity. w<* might  profitably turn to the adventurer in the  mines. In fact, we opine that this  optimistic spirit, Ihis hope for the best  which amounts in some cases ton belief  that the best will result, is one cause  of much unfortunate, speculation.  Men do not I'ke to have a dark pioiuri*  painted for them,   or  a   gloomy future  forecast      The truth may lie tested and  proved in two  ways.    Put   yourself iu  the position oI" the honest engineer who  liuds it is his duty to   report   adversely  mi a   proposition   iu   which   his client.-.  have put much money and   more faith.  Note how loth they    are   to   accept   the  decision even   though   il   he   the truth;  nolo how they will even resort to efforts  to gel some little ray of hope from the  repori which   paints  the   future black;  land   finally   see   them   sometimes  dis-  j credit youaiid s.ek the advice of a man  who, though he may be less competent.  ! is more optimistic.    This reluctance lo  accept a 'lark view of the situation is a  j manifestation ol   optimism.  !     The oilier situation which proves the  ;contention *s the   reverse   of the   tore  ] going.    Coiisid :r the average promoter  I and his roseate presentation of a pros-  ! pect to an   investor.    The   latter   likes  i the proposition if for  no other  reason  than-:--it    is   roseate.    He believes  that  everything that sounds  so  good   must  have   some   merit,   and    he     invests.  Either his  hope   that   the   investment  may prove fortunate finally makes him  believe that it will, or else iti a. spirit  of abandon he merely lakes a chance,  but-always with the nope tliat ii: will  turnout fortunately. In. either event  the optimistic presentation of the matter by the promoter gets his money ���  and this might be true of the project  ���which the conscientious engineer has  reported adversely on, and with no  discredit'to the promoter, he being as  a rule not a scientific man.  Fortunately, also, for the progress of  mining, one or two rebuffs or failures  do not dampen the ardor of the optimistic spirit. The prospector spends  his life in hope, his innate optimism  assures him that next year he will  strike the bonanza, that is always his  goal, but is seldom reached. But few  pessimists are found among the mining  fi atertiity, in whatever phase of the  industry they may play a part. Those  who do etiterltiin a spirit of pessimism  in regard to mining unusually do so by  reason of the extravagance of their  optimism in the inception cf their  venture.���B. C. Mining Exchange.  The essential parts of a motor or  dynamo are the same, the principal  difference being that the motor requires  electricity for its operation, while the.  dynamo produces, it. The essential  parts of the dynamo are: The armature, on which are wound the. conductors carrying the current', and which  revolves; the field magnets, which produce-the magnetism to act on the conductors and send or drive llicin past  the poles; the commutator, on whh h  slide the brushes which conduct the.  current into the mains.  When a neutral or alkaline solution  of potassium ferrocyauide is exposed  to light, ferric hydrate is .slowly precipitated; iu presence of alkali sulphide  ferrous sulphide is thrown down. No  precipitat ion takes place if the solutions  are protected from light ,,,lh '.. action is  therefore believed lo be entirely photochemical.  The electrolytic production of copper  direct from the matte consists in first  enriching-matte to between 72 per cent  and 80 per cent, copper and then using  said matte as au. anode iu an electroly le  of .in acid solution of -copper sulphate.

The report of the Granby Co. for the  year ending June 30, 1906, makes a  most "creditable showing. The company produced 19,939,004 pounds of  copper, -fn increase of 5,701,382 pounds  over the preceding year.' ft also j*reduced 315,947 ounces of silver audi  50,020 ounces of line gold. Its iiross  iiicoiue. was S4,75l,059, an increase of  over 52,000,000. Net profits amounted  loSl.823.C17, or $1.35 per share on its  outstanding capital.  The net cost of lhe company's copper was 8.35 cents per pound. It was  sold at an average of 17.78 cents per  pound. A total of 832,346 tons of ore  was smelted, indicating an average recovery of 22J_ pounds of copper per  tou of ore. The company expended  $105,975 for new constructions, paid  $350,485 for additional mining properties and carried $300,968 to its surplus,  making its total surplus $2,547,739, or  nearly $2 per share on its outstanding  1,350,000 shates of stock.  As stated previously, improvements  and extensions are now under way at  the Granby smelter which will increase  its capacity to between 30,000,000 and  35 000,000 pounds of copper annually.  It is now clearly demonstrated by what  was done last year that with this larger  volume of production the company's  copper will be made at a cost of not  over 8 ceiiIs per pound. The enlargement of its furnaces, tiow under way,  will be completed this month. Ou an  output of 30,000,000 pounds of copper  annually, sold at 20 cents per pound,  Granby will be able to earn more than  $2.50 per share oyer and above all operating expenses and its current construction account. With such earnings  the company's stock will be entitled to  sell at between $15 and $20 per share.  It is stated that Granby's new stock,  one share of which will take the place  of each ten shares of that now outstanding, will be listed ou the.New  York Stock Exchange. Friends of the  company believe that Granby's uew  stock will sell at $200 withiu a year.  #Ks-<f^����*tt^����^��-9��*>i��t^��-��������ict<t<ttt> iBftSftftftftftftftftftftftftftft**  reins # Bargain  vlft  MIDWAY & VERNON  ��� The meetiug of those interested in  the Midway & Vernon, which was to  have been held iu Victoria last Wednesday, has been postponed till October  17th.

A. McBride of Rock  Mountain, visited Greenwood Wednesday. They report railway work progressing stea.ily in the vicinity of  their place. It is on their place that  the "big loop" occurs, and work ou  this has been goitig on most of the  summer. The rails have been laid  past McBride's place to Molson. The  road bed requires considerable worK  yet, but it will be finished before long,  part of the equipment fora passenger  train has been taken over the road and  it has been stated that a passenger  service from Spokane to Molson will  be started next week, It is thought,  however, that such a prediction is a  little 'premature, aud that it will be  November 1st, at least, before passenger trains are running.  Mr. McBride reports that;mining operations will receive  a  decided stimu  lous through   the  starting of the rail ���  way and that several mines  will make  shipments.

The  Granby cup, won at Nelson for the best  display from any individual mine, is  made of sterling silver mined, smelted  aud refined in British Columbia. The  metal was treated at the Trail smelter  and afterwards made into a handsome  ���cup by a silversmith, The Spokane  cup, also awarded to the Strathmore  for the best display, is a heavy quadruplicate piece of silverwaie of beautiful  finish and design. Mr. Miller will  have the cups suitably engraved aud  sent to Chicago as examples of the  trophies Greenwood ores can win.  MAKES FAST RUN  Fire Brigade Gets to Fire in One and  a Half Minutes.  The fire brigade was given a test run  Tuesday night, and the manner in  which they acquitted themselves was a  surprise to most of the people on the  street, and rather a credit to the boys  themselves, W-iile the members of the  brigade were  going about  their usual  -evening diversions some one thought  it would be a capital idea to ring in an  alarm and test the efficiency of the fire  department. Accordingly a fire was  lighted at the corner of Center and  Copper streets and an alarm sent in.  There were only three or four of the  boys in the hall at the time, but what  they lacked in numbers  they   made up  .in speed, for in one and a half minutes  from the  sounding of the  alarm,   the  hose reel was at the scene of the blaze.  When the boys found   it  was a false  alarm they did uot attach   the  hose to  -the-hydrant, so it-is-uot-known���what  they can do,in this respect.  Six work horses for sale.

One of the  most important was that of W. H.  Jeffery vs. James Sutherland. The  plaintiff brought action for the recovery of $450 .for services in inspecting  and reporting on the Rlkhorn mine.

The case out of which  this last action arose, was tried in  August and the defendant was given  judgment. The association appealed  the case and last week Judge Clement  reserved judgment.

(Crowded out last week.)  ��� The Carmi mine is working fairly  well, and from the looks of the bunch  of good stuff cleaned up every night it  looks as if the mine is goiug to prove  a big winner. At the present time  about fifteen tons of ore is being milled  per shift.  Messrs. Pope & Arthur are building  a residence in Carmi in contemplation  of railway work in the near future.  Among recent visitors *to the town  were Alex Bloomfield, of Midway; Mr.  Kennedy, of Holmes & Kennedy, and  Mr. Jackson, of T. M. Gulley & Co.  The sally mine has a force of sixteen  men at work and from present appearances they will be shipping ore again  in a short time.  The Duncan is working six men and  is taking out ore regularly, and dy the  time the snow flies good things will be  heard of this most promising mine,  J. W. Nelsou of Greenwood, made  his regular trip of inspection to the  iRa,i_blef"min^fec'entl'y^aiad^wa"S^w'eir  pleased with the progress being made  on that valuable property. He thinks  they will be shipping again by snow  fall.  W. A. Keith & Co. are doing a nice  business at the Beaverdell store. Herb  Holmes is assisting with the work and  he is kept busy delivering goods to the  qarious mines supplied by the firm.  Robert Wood is visiting the Sally  and is the busiestman iu the camp just  now.  The steadily increasing travel ou the  West Fork roads is proving a boon to  the hotels along the way. Mrs. Smith  is kept pretty busy at the Beaverdell  hotel looking after the comfort of her  numerous guests.  E.Smith, trappet, has gone to the  head of the West Fork *o begin his  winter's work hunting the wild. He  will not return till spring.  Before Judge Clement, in Grand  Forks.- on Tuesday, the case of R.  Gregor vs. J. W. O'Brien, owner of the  Anaconda and Arlington hotels of  Greenwood, came up. Suit was brought  through the failure to make payments.  Defendant's evidence went to show  that he was heavily involved, and that  he was doing everything he could to  meet his obligations. The judge stated  that the defendant must be treated as  a man earning S90 per month, out of  which he had to support a family. Decision was reserved.  THE COPPER MARKET  New York, Oct. 11.���Copper continues firm and is steadily gaining in  price. Lake is selling at 20# and 20,J_  cent.-;, and electrolytic at 20^ cents per  pound for delivery up to the end of this  year. The price of both grades is approximately 20 cents, also, for deliveries during the first two months of next  year.

There was soon an ulcerated  sore around my limb like a bracelet.  The foot and ankle ��� were swoolen to  dearly three times the normal size, aud  I had to give up wearing a shoe. ..The  pain was terrible. I had medical attendance, and was also treated by a  New York doctor, but I got no ease.  Then I went into a hospital and vyaB  there lor nine long months.
