Some  months since this property was bonded  by the British Columbia Copper company and a crew of men put to work  tinder charge of Henry Johnson of  Anaconda, who has done a great deal  of exploratory work for the company  on other properties. Mr. Keffer reports the property as turning out some  very good copper ore. The mine is  being- worked at presgnt rather with  the idea of determining the nature and  extent of the'ore bodies. Incidentally  the ore taken out in 1he process is being* shipped to the local smelter.  Already about twenty cars have been  received from the mine. The ore is  hauled down the canyon to a siding on  the "Hot Air" line, about midway between Curlew and Danville, and thence  shipped over the "Hot Air" and Canadian Pacific lines to Greenwood.  If the ore body should, proye to be as  extensive as now hoped for, and the  mine give evidence of becoming a  steady shipper, it is believed that either  the Great Northern or Kettle Valley  'road .will.extend a spur up .t'ie mountain side and eventually into Central  Camp proper, where are several properties that could profitably ship, once  the transportation question was solved.  Some years ago a syndicate allied with  the B. C. Copper company acquired a  number of claims there and did a lot of  work, notably ou the No. 7, on which a  compressor was erected. The No. 7  has a good body of fine ore, and with  cheap transportation would prove a  good mine. The camp was reconnoit-  ered by a corps of surveyors in the  employ of the Great Northern some  time ago, and a feasible route reported.  "We believe that in a short time Cen  tral Camp will  justify   the   faith   that  lias been placed in it.  THE BOARD OF TRADE  Held a Meeting on Saturday Last.  AND GOT UP SOME STEAM  In Order to Be in Shape to Entertain  the Associated Boards to  Meet Here in March.  COMMENCED ON SPUR  Great Northern to Build to Victoria  ���"=-"-"������'Shaft-"a t-PhoeniXr���= -������  Phoenix, B. C, Feb. 20 ���T. J. Gallagher, railwaj' contractor, who will  construct the Victoria shaft spur for  the Great Northern railway to the  Granby mines' new outlet, has arrived  here and has shipped his construction  outfit from Myncaster, westof Midway,  where he had a contract on the V.. V.  & E. extension to this point, and will  begin active work at once. As there is  a large amount of rock to remove it  will require several mouths to build  this mile and a half spur. All details  of securing casern nts from the Dominion Copper company to cross that  company's Idaho claim have been completed, and W. D. Wilson is already at  work moving the big Granby stable  from the right of way of the new spur  The Canadian Pacific has already begun the work of makintr alterations in  i.s trackage here to reach the Vietoris  shaft of the Granby company, the  terminal buildings, headwnrks, ore  crusher, ore buakers, etc , being so  arranged that tonnage can be given to  either or both of the rail way a.  There was a meeting of the Greenwood Board of Trade in the offices of  the Bealey Investment compan}- last  Saturday afternoon. The number  present was not very large, the enthusiasm wasn't above ordinary, but  notwithstanding the old ship was  oveihauled for another voyage. The  hull was scraped, the decks washed, the  tattered sails mended, the broken spars  replaced, and a new captain put in  charge of nearly the same old crew,  few nev.- men having appeared to sign  articles. *     ' ���  It was decided to cancel all arrearages of dues and to reduce charges for  the current year. Any individual or  firm may become a member by payment of $5 for the year 1907.  The Associated Boards of Trade of  Eastern British Columbia is to meet in  <*iinual-session in Greenwood in March  next, and the ?ocal board will make an  effort tp be in good shape to receive  that body. Many matters of importance are to come before the Associated  Boards. In at least one of these Greenwood is deeply interested���that is the  effort to have the "Municipalities"  Act so amended that railwa}- tracks,  buildings and other improvements  lying within the limits of a to win,shall  pay taxes for the same to the town instead of the province,  All those present, embracing representatives from the large mercantile  firms of the city, including Hunt.er-  Kendrick Co., P. Burns & Co., George  .& Co., T. ' M. Gulley & Co., Russell-  T,awCaulfield Co., Bealey Investment  company, White Bros., McRae Bros.,  Cropley & Co. and others, realized the  situation and, promised fealty to the  board.  The officers elected for the ensuing  vear were: J. A. Russell, president;  T. M. Gulley, vice president; W. G.  Gaunce, secretary-treasurer.  Members of lhe council���Chas. G.  Wilson. J. T. Beattie. Herbert Bunting,  A. M. Whiteside.  It was the sentiment of those present that inasmuch as the Board in the  past had been instrumental in doing  _____fl_ra_le. work of value to the large  m3m-J  DIES  OF TYPHOID  A great many people in Greenwood  will hear with regret that Miss Knis-  ley, who at one time was a nurse in  this city in the employ of Dr. Spankie,  died recently in Fernie, after three  weeks' illness, with typhoid fever.  Miss Knisley appears to havo bet-n  as highly respected in Fernie ns in  Greenwood, and Ik-.-- d��ath there is  j cause of general yriof.  mir.ingand smelting industries of the  district, that they might naturally be  appealed to for for larger subscriptions  than mere annua1 dues.  A committee was appointed to lay  this matter before such companies and  also to assist the secretary in an effort  to increase the membership roll of the  Board.  Tt is to be hoped that the public will  take hold of this revived Board and  contribute to its success.,  There in talent enough among the  business and professio-ial men of  Greenwood to make the Board of Trade  an institution capable of doing much  good forthe community.  This must be done within the Board,  however, and to that end we trust that  with this revival of the B >ard there  may cohte to the entire community a  revival of public spirit and a willing  ness among all classes to do some of  the drudgery that must be done in all  localities that wish to do more than  merely survive.  Criticism is always helpful if done  in a right spirit, but to oe most effective it should be within and not without  the Board.  Whether the Greenwood Board of  Trade shall measure up to its opportunities or not rests with the public,  and of that public each individual is a  part.  j Don't overlook Board of Trade meet-  j ing: on Saturday, February 23rd inst..  | in offices of Bealey Investment Co.,  at .3 o'clock. The Board is open to  jail interested in the city's welfare.  Come to the nte-eting.  HIGH GRADE CIRCLE  A Bee Hive of Industry All  Around Greenwood.  ALL SHOWING UP WELL  Crescent Fraction installing Electric  Hoist ���Crescent Shaft Now  Down 240 Feet.  The Crescent mine is now timbering  a station at the 220 foot level, where  the ore is six to eleven inches wide,  .short drifts having been run north and  south on the vein, so that the machine  drills can be set up on the bare. Aa  soon as the station is timbered sinking  will be continued by hand drilling  until the compressor arrives from  Montreal, when machines will be used  in sinking, drifting and stoping. The  Crescent will be the best equipped high  grade mine in the Boundary. Ho  breaks have occurred from the ���urface  of the vein to the present depth, 240  feet, which is something to brag- of In  Greenwood camp.  The  Prince   Henry   has  passed the.  speculative point  in  mining.   At the  200 foot level and  several  feet abeve,  the vein has straightened  up and the  ore is now six  and  eight  inches wide  and solid,    A sample can   be eeen  at  White Bros.'s drug store window.  The  management and  engineering  part of  the mine  can   certainly  bo   coiigri.tu-  lated, as sensible  work  through   their  engineer ard good grit on   the  part of  the management has  made the mine a  success.  Portman Brothers are doing- thing."  on the Dvnamo east of town. They  decided, when resuming work in the  early winter, not to carry the long tu��-  nel any further at present, but to sink  farther up hill on the ore. They iir<j  now -timbering a 5x7 foot shaft they  bave down on the ore for a distance of  thirty feet.    The lead is two feet wide  ���*:  .'V  at the bottom of this shaft and runs  well in silver and gold. They HaVe  erected a fine dwelling house oa the  claim.   .  The Elkhorn has new life, and; in  the next thirty days watch the etpcjr  go up. The mine is locally considered  one of the best and has a record, ot  S72.000 worth of ore extracted and sold'!  It is now find the ore. It certainly ia  tnere. The Providence and Elkhorn  have broken identically the same and  between the two  mines.    If we had no  dykes to   disturb   our   ore   bodies we  ...  would have a snap.  The Crescent Fraction in their shaft  has struck the country water level aind  the ore has made good, and is a fad  simile of the Crescent high grade ore.  The shaft is below the leaking point  from seepage. Good work la going* on  there and when they get their electric  hoist so as they can handle  the water.  * '*���* t' :  something good is going to happen.  The diamond drill work on the B. C,  in Summit Camp, has revealed the  presence of additional ore bodies. The  company is rather reticent of the results but camp folk discuss a 14 foot  body of high class ore. We look to  see this property, under the present  management, develop into what its  early days presaged��� i bonanza.  The Greyhound management is encouraged with the outlook of, this  Deadwood property. The showing  made on development undertaken apart  from ihe old shaft has encouraged the  exploration of the claim from the bottom of the old working shaft.  The Skylark company's latest report shows that the property well deserves the early confidence of its promoters.    It is shipping steadily.  Little is known of the progress being  made on the Bay, but reports credit the  property     with     satisfactory    results  ui��du. development.  :���"������.  mi-M  FEB 2? .30?       jj   ttj BOUNDARY   C&fc'EK   7  Cue  Boundary Creek Times  Issued every Triday  SY THS  Boundary Creek Printing and Publishing  Co., Limited,  J.

THE STATUTE MICROBE  The microbe legislative is certainly  getting in his work at this season The  character of the bug appears to be dependent on local conditions entirely.  In some sections i* is benign, in some  malign, and in others just silly.  In New Brunswick a benign germ  has attacked the legislature and it  seeks to increase the pay of the pubLic  school teacher.  In Alberta the legislators are yielding to the influence of a wonderful  sensible, almost socialistic germ, and  seeks to ramify the province with a  government built, government controlled telephone system.  Ih South Dakota a somewhat sumptuary bug is injecting into the legisla  tire vein the serum of objection to one  man's right to treat another in a saloon  and a law is proposed making the same  an offence against the state.  In Missouri the germ silly is getting  in'his work and the legislature proposes to make it unlawful for a woman  to buy more than two hats in any one  calendar year.  In Washington a most pernicious  microbe is trying to work the legislature up to the point of passing a law  that shall most materially lessen the  privileges of what is known as a free  press. This bug has thus far attacked  only intellectual kids in the legislature and an effort is being made to inoculate a majority of the lawmakers  therewith.  We, who reside north of the international line, may well be proud pf  the benign character of the bug Canadian, and regret, with aober men on  the other side, that the bug American  appears to be either malign or silly.  EDITORIAL NOTES  Canada's new Sunday observance  law is scheduled to come into effect on  March 1st, next.  Women who love the sensational  have been in the habit of so crowding  the court room at the Thaw trial that  orders have been issued forbidding  entrance to all women but those known  to be newspaper writers.  Thk Vancouver World, which recently offered a premium of a half  pound of tea to patrons of its want ad  columns, has this to say of itself:  "The World is the greatest Canadian  real estate medium in Canada!" Honest, now, is it tea you're drinking?  Wic may frankly say that we are  much mistaken in Premier McBride if  he allows the Grand Trunk Pacific  railway to appropriate those Indian  lands north without just compensation.  Party politics a-e one thing, but Provincial rights are another.  Oriental schools, and those under 16  ������years may attend the classes with the  white children. Skilled and unskilled  Japanese laborers shall not be allowed  ou the mainland of the United States,  and a like distinction shall' prevail  against white laborers in Japan.  Greenwood, B. C, Feb 16, 1907.  To the Editor ot ihe Boundary Creek Times;  Dear Sir���In reply to a remark  made by the editor of the Ledge, on  page 2 of the last issue, it seems as  though the editor was hitting the com  mittee of the masquerade ball, and  would say we have never a.ked or expected the Ledge staff to be preseut,  and what is more so, we had no "tickets" to offer for sale, it being a totally  optional affair.    Yours truly,  FRKD. B. Ho_,mb*s.  P. S.���The writer has on other occasions had printing done for similar  affairs, aud never asked the Ledge to  buy tickets, nor, on the other hand,  offered complimentary ones.  FELL   DOWN  FLIGHT OF  STEPS  General Kukopotkin has published  the story of the war with Jjpan and  has given his reasons for Russian defeat. He appears to 1/iarnc everybody  but himself, the government, the oub-  lic, the generals under him, and the  rank and file. He has overlooked the  chief contributory cause, the prowess  of the foe.  Archaeological research in Egpyt  and the east has, within the last  quarter century, proved true many of  the stories of the Bibie, a book whose  New Testament teachings many question, but whose Old Testament histories are being substantiated by sci  ence. The most learned are the greatest believers today in Bible history,  the illiterate the most skeptical. Sir  ���William Ramsay is reported to be plan  ning to lea ve London soon to prosecute  through Asia Minor, a search for the  clay tablet, which he insists must exist  somewhere in temple or ruins, on which  is recorded the Bible story of the  transfer of land made by the Hittites  to Abraham as a burial spot for his  wife Sarah.  The controversy raised by the action  of the San Francisco school board in  debarring Japanese from the city public schools, appears to have.been settled,  each side to the controversy having  receded to some extent. The terms of  settlement reached are that adult Japs  in the primary grades shall attend the  ���p�����i*1 vammMmMaaBummmaaammmmmVi  ' '���'"'THE >''  ��w  Is under the management of  Greig and  Morrison.

DRAYING �� We Can Move Anything  F. C. BUC    PROPRIETOR  Proved Zam-Buk Best in Three Differ  ent Emergencies.  One of tho most valuable points  about Zam-Buk, the herbal balm, is  the variety of t-ses to which it can be  applied.  Mrs. A. Livernois, of 131 Sydenham  street, Toronto, says: "I have used  Zam-Buu: for colds on the chest ancl  found when well rubbed in it gave  almost instant relief to the 'tightness'  and 'stiffness.' One day I slipped  when descending the stairs and fell to  the bottom. Mr. right arm was terribly  discolored and swollen and became  quite stiff, As I still had a supply of  Zam-Buk I ru bfced some on the bruised  limb and it was really surprising how  quickly it removed the discoloration,  cured the stiffness and restored the arm  to its proper form. Since that time I  have had occasion to use Zam-Buk for  rheumatism and I have found it equally  good."  Zam-Buk is so uuiformally good  because it is composed of the finest  herbal balms, essence**- and juices  known to medical science, compounded  and refined in a special and peculiar  way. It has such high germ killiug  power that it is unequalled as an antiseptic. Its healing virtue is very great  and as a household balm Zam-Buk is  absolutely unique. It i * a sure cure for  eczema, itch, blood poison, ulcers,  chronic sores, ringworm, children's  rashes, spots, etb. It also cures cuts,  burns, bruises, chapped hands, enlarged veins, piles and all diseased or  injured conditions ot the skin and  subjacent tissues. All druggists and  stores sell at 50c. a box, or post free  from the Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, f.r  price. Six boxes sent for $2.50. Send  one cent for dainty trial box.  OTTAWA SUMMER CARW1VAL71907  Active preparations are under way  for a monster Summer Carnival of  Sport, and Old Boys' Reunion in the  Canadian capital next July.  The dates arranged are from Saturday, July 27th to Monday, August 5th,  both inclusive; and a program is being  drafted which promises to include every  knownkindof sport and entertainment  both on land and water. Strong committees, composed of the leading citizens of the capital, are busy working  out details, and it is guaranteed that  theie will not be a dull moment, day  nor night, for the entire ten days.  Aleady Ottawans are going to bed  early so that, when the Carnival time  comes, they will be rea>ly to stay up  night and day to care for their guests,  of whom at least 100,000 are  expected.  The general executive is particularly-  anxious to hear of and from every old  Ottawan (native or otherwise), who ii.  now away from the old home, so that  full information and a personal invitation to attend maj- be .-.ent to him or  her. Names and addresses forwarded  to K. Patching, Carnival secretary,  City Hall, Ottawa, will be registered  and promptly communicated with.  All the railways will give cut rates,  thus offering exceptional inducements  for a holiday jaunt which will attract  thousands who do not come within the  classification of Old Ottawans; and the  committee will be glad to hear from  any who are interested in obtaining  fuller information with the object of  taking in the trip during their next  summer vacation,    il-  Old Ottawans do not need to be reminded of thft recuperative effects of a  ten days' sojourn in .he perfect climate  of a Canadian summer, but to others,  who desire to escape for a brief period  from the sweltering heat of more  southern latitudes, it may be pointed  out that no m<jie attractive proposition  will offer next season than this trip to  Ottawa.  ^TOgffl^  CF*  CF'  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  e_.

CRUISE OF THE NEPTUNE  The Cruise of the Neptune, just  received, is a most interesting book.  Although in. the form of a report on  the Dominion Government expedition  to Hudson bay and the Arctic islands,  made under direction of Mr. A. P. L,ow  of the Dominion Geological survey, it  is a most attractive affair and fitted  for the library shelf.  The book is well written, handsomely  illustrated and contains a mass oi  scientific and other information gotten  up in most readable, form.  Matters of scientific detail that  would tend to mar the entertaining  character of the story are inserted iti  form of appendices to the book.

The Copper Handbook is conceded to  l��e the  tain amount v>f*enj��>yii)etit. in tin; same  sense.as a man wlu.se whipping days  are over is afl'eetionately reminiscent of  his years spent at school.  One of the owners of the annexed  por lion of the Greenwood townsite, Mr.  James Sutherland, tells -in interesting  story of Boundary creek in 1887. He  came to the country from Spokane,  traveling over the then apology for a  trail, swimming rivers and dodging  trees as best he could until he reached  Grand Prairie. He had only beeu here  a few days when he was called upon to  act as a. special constable, to arrest a  certain bad, bold man, who was terrorizing the neighborhood. This gentleman went bj- the euphonious sobriquet  of "Dakota Charlie," though he was  sometimes known as"Bliza:ard Bill"or  "Bronco Bill." A warrant was made  out'by W. A. Jones, the customs officer,  and the only J. P. in the country, for  the capture of the desperado, and a  posse of mounted men, armed to the  teeth���a. well known pioneer farmer,  now a resident of J naconda, believing  in Judge Lynch's speedy and effective  method of justice, carried a rope���and  led by Mr. Sutherland, started cour  ageously on their errand. On the way.  however, they thought better of it���and  returned quietly to their homes.  In 1887 there were only three claims  located on Boundary creek, the Tunnel,  Non Such and Republic, and one on the  Prairie, the Eagle. The Tunnel, staked  by Mr. McCarren, of Boundary Falls,  was really the first location on the  creek, though Mr. W, T. Smith located  the Nou Such and Republic shortly  afterwards. In 1890 a small two-stamp  mill was erected near-the Boundary  creek falls, by the Spokane & Northern  Mining company, the machinery being  packed in by mules over tlie trail. The  mill was kept running for about four  months, the ore from the Mountain  View being- treated very successfully  until it began to turn base, Some  picked ot e rrom the Non Such was also  treated, running $150 to the ton. .Beyond this there was little doing in the  way of mining. Until the government  contracted for a monthly mail service  in 1890, letters were entrusted to the  first traveler who happened to be passing. When, however, Mr. Sutherland  rati his ;tage to Marcus, nuking the  round trip once a month, he consented  to carry letters at the rate of 25c. each.  When the first store was started on  Grand'-Prairiersupplies-were���brought  in from Hope by pack train via the  Similkameen, and prices were consequently in proportion to the length and  difficulty of the trip.

L-a Portwin,  of 36 St. Paul street, Toronto, tried  six different remedies for dyspepsia,  headache and heartburn, before he  tried Bileans. The six did him no  good. "I had heartburn, dyspepsia  and wind after food. The nourishment  I took seemed to do me no good, and  the pain I suffered was very acute. I  tried six different remedies before  Bileans, but they did me no good.  With Bileans it was quite different. I  found they relieved the flatulence aud  the pain within a few hours and a  short course resulted iu a complete  cure."  In every country where they have  been introduced.

About 50 young folks went on the  moonlight drive last Friday evening.  Ori return they repaired to the Presbyterian church, under whose auspices  the drive was arranged, and partook of  hot coffee and cake,' thoughtfully provided by a committee of ladies.

Morgan, known to everybody from the head of Boundary cteek  to the mouth of Kettle river, has just  returned from a ten days' trip to Spokane. He was surprised on the outward trip at the great improvements  made since he last carric over the road  15 years ago. But he was equally ini  pressed on the return trip, as he fell  into remiuescent mood, over the gr ��at  changes in the Boundary since he first  came in 15 years ago. Then there was  wilderness where today are the thriving towns of Greenwood and Phoenix.  There were prospects in the hills but  no mines, no smelters, no pay rolls.  The lumbering stage rolled over the  dusty, rutty roads from Marcus to  Grand Forks. Beyond that the traveler  resorted to his feet or a cayuse. Today  two railways traverse the district and  stag-es connect all centers of population. He didn't realize what had been  taking place in the hills until he began  to compare the past with the present.  He met many old timers in Spokane���  Ditmer, Sansom, Simmons'-anti, others'.  Harry doesn't say so, but he looks ' as  if lie were glad to return to the brightness and pure air of the hills.

It is a matter of great  satisfaction to find so many interested  aud the association will have missed  its best intentions if every person in  the camp does not feel a personal interest in the work.  1.

Newhouse Management for  13 Months.  EARNS $22,871 A MONTH  Production for This Year Estimated  at 9,000,000 Pounds���Can  Handle 1 Per Cent Ore.  New York, Feb. 10.���The condensed  statement of the Dominion Copper  Company, Ltd., for the first thirteen  months of operation under the Samuel  Newhouse management and covering-  the period December 1, 1905, to December 31, 1^06, show* net prqfits fromiated, practically, during a period of  operation  of  $297,319.    This sho-vinjf j construction.   When Samuel Newhouse  was uitide \vtth a total smelter capacity  of about 600 to 650 tons per dav. which  .   .      . ' c  capacity is now being increased to 1500  tons per day by the installation of a  new furnace, which is. the largest copper smelting- furnace in British Columbia.  The furnace will be fed mechanically  by side dumping- steel cars, drawn by  clcctni locomotives. Before being ted  to the furnace, the ores are crushed in  a mam moth crusher, which is of the  same pattern as that in use at the  Granby mines. After being- crushed  the ore is hoisted in a bucket -.levator  to the biii floor, where it is dumped on  a link steel belt conveyor. Under this  arrang-etitent the handling of ores from  the ore car to the furnace is automatic,  and will result in a large saving in  labor The entire smelter plant will be  operated by electricity,  A PEiKIOD OF CONSTRUCTION.  During the thirteen months (December 1, 1905, to December 31,  1906)  the  Dominion   Copper  company   has oper-  took hold of the man.fi-ement, a comprehensive plan of development and  construction work at the mines and  smrl-i-r (io h capacity of 1,500 tons of  o.T: i*.r dav), was otttjiiied, and the  inauguration oi" this'new furnace com  pletes the plans then made  The first report made to the present  m?nagement by M. .M. Johnson,  prophesied that with these improvements completed, and the output -increased to 1,2)0 tons per day, the Dominion Copper company could realize  net prt.fiis of SI 25 per ton of unturned, with copper at the low price of  13 cents per po'iud.  P KOSPKCT1VK   PRODI.DTIOS'.  It is expected that with the nev.-  furnace in coin mission, the Dominion  company will produce 9,000,000 pound*.-  of copper per annum, at a cost of about  8 cents per pound. With copper at IS  cents per pound this output would show  net earnings of ��850,000 to S900.000  which would allow the company to take  care of all fixed charges and sinking  fund requirements, and leave 14 per  cent earned on the par value of the  company's capital stock,  With copper at the present price,  25 cents per pound, and with every indication that it will remain at that  price, or sell higher, for the balance of  the year, the net profits would be over  Si,500,000. which would show net earn  itigs of 26 per cent on the par value of  the company's shares, after allowing  for all fixed enlarges and sinking fund  requirements.  A DEMONSTRATED ENTERPRISE.  It is believed that these figures as to  amount of output are conservative, as  during the past thirteen months, the  company has produced 4,405,000 pounds  of copper, with a total smelting capacity of only 650 tons of ore per day aud  working under the disadvantages of a  remodeling of its smelter plant.  Development work at the mines also  has been pushed, so that the ore reserves will be ample for the increased  smelter capacity. During this time, a  complete plan of development of the  Rawhide and Idaho claims of the company has been followed, and these two  ���prpperties, which on;* j-ear ago were  hardly touched, are in shape to furnish  1,000 tons of ore per day.  Up to the present time a large pro  portion of the 600 tons of ore per day  smelted has been takan from the Brooklyn and Sunset. Both these properties  will continue to contribute their quota.  The company is also doing develop-  "iient work on its Crown Silver, C. O.  D. and Athelstan properties.- The ore  reserves now in sight are sufficient to  give the company a capacity of 1.500  tons per day for several years to come  STRONG FINANCIAIJ.Y.  The capitalization of thecompan}- is  $1,000,000 bonds, and S5,000,000 stock,  in shares of S10 par value.  The company is very strong financi  ally. When all its improvements ere  completed and paid for. the.company  will still have over S7_0,000 on hand in  cash, so that the company will be justified in at once going on a dividend  basis,  -     SUMMARY OF OPERATIONS.  ���In a brief report covering the opera  tions of the company-during the thir  teen months mentioned above, M, M.
