We are showing it in all wool, and silk  and wool, in white, cream and natural,  and at all prices.  Stanfields Underwear is made in Truro, Nova  Scotia, in the most up-to-date factory in North  America, by skilled labor only, nothing' but the  finest Nova Scotia wool being used in the manufacture, and it is guaranteed to be absolutely  unshrinkable.    Tr}- it and be convinced.  A perusal of the Public Schools re-  part for 1905, just received, afford-  much of inteiest to one concerned  about the cause of public education.  It also contains some data that reflect  on our own,* among other localities,  and charges parents quite as much as  teachers, wilh the responsibility of defects.  Many of the interior towns of the  province evidence a want of interest  in this, what ought to be a matter of  first concern, and -unfortunately no  towns appear to suffer more by comparisons and conclusions than Greenwood and Phoenix.  For purposes of comparison, we  herewith tabulate a few of the smaller  towns in the matter of enrolment 1 and  daily attendance, and must say that in  view thereof we think the conclusions  drawn by the inspector are right.  Unroll-       Av. at-  Town. ment.

Are physical conditions so different  in Greenwood that the attendance is^so  far below that of Kaslo, Kamloops and  Grand Forks? Is the weather more  inclement? Is the distance necessary  to travel greater?.  We know that these are not the  reasons.  Our school district is compact, the  school is central, the climate unsurpassed. It is not for us to point out  the trouble upon a rather superficial  examination of the case, but we quote  the inspector thereon, and his professional criticism ought to have weight.  He says:  "Greenwood, inspected January 24,  and March 6 and 7, 1905; 62 pupils  present. Schobl^gromfdsr,_Wel'ed~and"  planted with shade trees, rooms kal-  somined and genet ally rendered more  attractive and comfortable; small  library and book case framed; additional apparatus supplied. The regularity of attendance at Greenwood  school is certainly not what it should  be, for instead of growing greater, it  has actually shown a decrease for each  of the past two years. The percentage  of regular attendance for 1904-5 was  only 52.36, which means that little over  half of the pupils enrolled attended on  an average during every school  day.  "When parents are so indifferent as  to allow their children to regulate their  own attendance at school, teachers can  do little to overcome a serious evil.  * # * * *  "The principal and his assistant take  a deep interest in their work, and  already have done much for the school."  But what matters*, the interest of  teachers if the pupils do not attend?  Why this expenditure for pleasant,  healthful surroundings if not availed  of7 Why do our pupils on an av rage  attend school only half the time, ard  as a result get less than half the actual  benefits available?  The question is up to the parents.  Womens' Goods.  Mens Goods  No Opium in Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy.  There is not the least danger in giving Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy to  small children as it contains no opium  or other harmful drug.    It  has  an es  1 tablishcd reputation of more than thirty  I years as the most successful  medicine  I in use for eolds,  croup  and   whooping  i cough.   It always cures and is pleasant  i to take.    Children like  it.    Sold by all  druj_gi-t_.  During the summer and early autumn  something over two thousand of our  empire's citizens from 7-ndia sought  their fortunes in the golden west of  the empire, entering British Columbia.  Had they been fitted for the climate  arid work that awaited them, they  doubtless would have been welcome,  but thev were not, and hence a persist* .  ent effort has been made to gel rid of  them. They doubtless had read or  heard of the proud boast of our empire,  ou which the sun never sets, and relied  rather on their citizenship than their  qualifications,for a welcome.  The number given by the government returns is much less than one  would have expected by reading the  provincial press. The howl against  them has been loud, and has extended  from the coast to the far eastern bounds  of the province, the press of some  small towns in the interior placing the  number of this new incubus at four or  five hundred locally. , These figures  mus*- have been exaggerations in instances, now that we know that only  slightly over 2,000 in all came.  But their habits were against them,  and habits that are national are difficult to improve. And their physical  qualifications were against them, and  they were unsuited for the work they  attempted.  The Chinaman is only tolerated because his work comes little into competition with the white man. But with  the Hindu it is different. He essays to  do a white man's work and bear a  white man's burden, and he,is unequal  to it. As a result he cheapens labor  and cheapens labor's reward, and the  white laborer quite naturally dislikes  this, while the employer of labor gets  doubtful results..';."'  We do not think that the outcry  against the Hindi' indicates any disposition among our people to treat British Columbia as a preserve for those  now here. There is room for the right  immmigrant and he will find a hearty  welcome. But he must be fitted for  the'wbrkhe ^attempts.-and-his-habits _  must be in sympathy with those of the  white man.  The Hindu has not been treated very  mercifully in the large towns, ��� He ha.  been allowed to suffer want sometimes,  but if he cannot by his own works'disprove the fear that he is likely to become a public charge, he has no right  here. This he does not appear able to  do, with the0result that the Federal and  even the Imperial authorities have  found it incumbent upon them, the one  to say, those here should be deported,  the other to see that those yet in India  and planning to come, must be told  that they better remain at home.  British Columbia fields aud forests,  her seas and mountains, a.i rich in  wealth and wanting labor to unlock  the treasure houses, will" welcome all  who come, equal to the toil demanded,  and with habits befitting its standard  of civilization, but to the tall and  swarthy Sikh it must say an unqualified "nay."  In doing this no disparagement is  meant for the work of the Sikh in other  fields, fields where hs has shed lustre  on his name and defended the cause of  Briton, but no fidelity to the empire's  cause asks us to open our doors to  those unable to share our responsibilities.

The local lodge of Odd Fellows  had a great time last evening' for  the little folks in Eag-les' Hall.  The lodge room had been made  beautiful for the event by aid of  soap and water, paint and brush.  decorations and art.  The occasion was an Xmas  tree for the children of Odd Fellows and neither trouble nor expense was spared in preparation.  The decorative genius of Frank  Spearing had been* called into  reqvisition and he had transformed bare walls into fairyland.  From the ceiling were suspended  a number of beautiful Japanese  center pieces and pendent thereon  were bells in red.  Around the lower walls ran  bunting of red and white gracefully festooned, while above blue  and yellow surmounted with flags  looked attractive.  Around the entire building Empire flags of many kinds appeared  in profusion, while electric lights  made the entire scene brilliant  and beautiful.  But design and decoration were  outdone in the spirit of the event,  for this was notably children's  night, and the music and the  gifts, the folly and the fun, were  intended for them.  Santa Claus, in the person of  Frank Spearing, we divine, was  on hand, loaded with toys and  sweet meats and gifts spread on  his person, the Christmas tree  and all about the place it seemed.  The event was a red-letter one  for the Boundary.  THE ORE TRAIN  CHARACTER   IN   W5ND0W  DISPLAY  P. A.

Over 300  tons are. going out, being concentrates  of the mill run the past season. The  ore is of good grade and is rich in  silver values.  Good reports come from the Surprise  mine. The long tunnel is being pushed  steadily ahead and is now in over 600  feet. The formation of the lead is  changing, and indications point lo the  fact that the ore vein is not   f.ir   away.  The Simi'.kamekn-��� Mr. W. H.  Armstrong, vice president of Hie Similkameen Mining & Smeltinc company;  has received from lhe mine, superintendent at Bear creek, a letter which  indicates that one of the biggest strikes  of high grade ore ever made in British  Columbia has been made there. This  information confirms advices previously received. About a week ago the  superintendent wrote that a change  was coming over the formation and it  had widened from four to six feet. The  last letter, however, states that the  shaft is now in solid high grade ore.  The shaft is six feet across and there  are two feet of ore to the hanging wall  making a solid body of ore eight feet  wide.  - This bears out the opinions of William Yolen Williams and Walker Harvey Weed and other experts that ore of  this character increases in body and  value as it increases in depth. The  present work of the company is exploratory rather than actual mining,  and yet they will have half a million  dollars worth of ore blocked out within  the next six months. This in itself  will represent a handsome profit,which  should be inceased indefinitely when  real stoping and shipping commence.  Assays show the ore to run about $70  per ton, $50 in gold and $10 each in  silver and  copper.���News   Advertiser.  The Crow's Nest���The coal shipments from the mine of the Canadian-  American Coal & Coke Co., of this  place, are now averaging about 700  tons per day.  Ashcroft���In the iviar future "actual development work will commence  in a district comparatively close to  Ashcroft which will supply one of the  long felt wants of the Pacific Slope������  namely, an ample ore supply, and blast  furnaces for the production of pig iron  of high class," says P. H. Moore, M.  E. Analysis of the ore prove that for  tool steel, and general manufacturing  purposes the famous iron ores of Sweden are its only equals. In character  the ore fulfils ever.* requirement for  successful electric smelting, and that  method will probably be utilized, as an  enormous water power is quite close to  the ore deposits, which are very extensive and will undoubtedly ' furnish  sufficient quantities for many years to  come.  In Praise of Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy.  There is no other medii ine manufec-  tured that hits received so much praise  and so many expressions, of gratitude  as Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It  is effective, and prompt relief follows  its use. Grateful parents everywhere  do not hesitate to testify to its merits  for the benefit of others. It is a certain  cure for croup and will prevent the  attack if given at the first appearance  of the disease. It is especially adapted  to children as it is pleasant to take and  contains nothing injurious. Mr. E. A.  Humphreys, a well known resident and  clerk in the store of Mr. f_. Lock, of  Alice, Cape Colony, South Africa, says:  "I have used Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy to ward off croup and colds in  my family. I found it to be very sat  isfactory and it gives nie pleasure to  recommend it." For sale by all druggists.

The number of passers by  "caught" as regular patrons depends  largely on the nature of the window  dressing employed, says "Boostor" in  the General Merchants' Review. The  merchant who can decorate the show  windows of his store so as to create a  favorable impression in the mind of the  passerby is well embarked on the road  lo success. It is well known that the  appearance of a portion of food will,  in a measure, influence its effect on the  palate. Theabove is but an illustration of the id_a your store creates in  the mind of the observer by iis outside  appearance. In the retail trade, appearance is everything. On the appearance of your store hinges, to a  great extent, your patronage. Lookers  on are like flies on a screen door���some  are sure to get in���and, when people  "get in" your store it is very seldom  they don't buy. The merchant with an  interestingly decorated show window  is sure to attract a greater crowd of  lookers on than liis competitor with a  window display all out of style and  date. When a shipment of new goods  arrive,''don't leave the old stuff in the  window. Be "seasonable." Strive to  create the impression and cause the  statement, "That fellow's up to date."  It's the up-to-date merchant who gets  the trade. The accomplishment of the  "up-to-date" show window is very  simple. Have "character" in the display, don't display last season's goods,  and light your window property.  "Character is what counts in dressing  windows to the best advantage from an  advertising standpoint.  INDIVIDUALITY.  By "character" is meant individuality  ���don't because your competitor makes  a strike with a certain style of window  dressing, imitate him. Nothing wil  make you look as cheap to the people  you are trying to appeal to, as to use  another man's ideas. Imitation is and  has been the ruination of many an  otherwise nourishing general store  business. To successfully conduct a  general store in these days of advanced  ideas, it is necessary to advertise.  Good advertising is that which produces results from the smallest outlay  of money. A little money and lots of  ideas will accomplish far more than a  lot.of money and few ideas. "Window  dressing of character"- must necessarily be the product of a man of  ideas, "Window display character" is  the sort that "pulls," that nets the  results. The principal ide.. of "Character" in window display is to make  people "sit up and take notice." If the  townspeople see a novel idea executed  in your window display or a novel  stateriient in your printed matter it will  not be long before your advertising  will be a "tea table talk." That's what  you want. �� If you can make them  talk about you it is easy lo make them  buy. Don't forget. Be original. The  lighting, of course, depends on .the  color scheme of the display. It is far  .froni_correct_tolight.a_windowshowing=  white goods with a bright, white light.  It is just as much an error to turn a  soft, mellow light on a display of goods  of a deep shade. Judgment must be  used regarding the foregoing, of course.  Lighting is one of the main feature*  in successful window display. Few  merchants fully appreciate it, but the  success or failure of a "window dress"  depends greatly on the method of the  illumination.���Commercial.  11  Generally speaking, electric furnaces  may be divided under two main headings, namely: Those in which the  heating effect is produced by the elec  tricarc established between two carbon  or other electrodes connected with the  source of current, commonly known as  arc furnaces; and those in which the  heating effect is produced by the passage of the current through a resistance, which either forms part and parcel of the furnace proper or is constituted, by a suitable conducting train,  of material to be treated iu the furnace. The principle of the later type  is analagous to that involved in the  heating to incandescence of the ordinary electric lamp filament, and such  furnaces are, as a class, known as resistance furnaces.  k�� .

After making a thorough test of FERROL in its own  laboratory the London (England) Lancet published an  article from which the following is taken :  "This is a successful combination of the well-  known valuable remedies, Cod Liver Oil, Iron and  Phosphorus. The formula is no secret, and our  analysis showed the presence and amount of constituents as described. The preparation is a good one  and of distinct therapeutic value. The association of  an easily assimilable oil, in a fine state of division,  with a phosphatic salt of iron which does not disturb  the digestive functions and which is easily tolerated,  determines its success as a food and tonic in wasting  diseases."  What the London Lancet' recommends as a food  and a tonic in all wasting diseases must have very  special qualities,  No higher endorsation is possible.

Hall  has the contract to deepen the  Oro shaft, in Central camp.  Frank Goombs has been working for many months steadily on  his claim in Central camp, near  the City of Paris, ancl says he  has a great showing of ore.  It. is reported that the management of the Providence mine contemplates  the   multiplication  of II  its capital   marn-   times.    It   will'!  hardly be able thereafter to claim  the proper-3' as a dky mine.  The unwatering of the Cari-  boo-McKiuney has been completed and mining has begun. It  is the opinion of many mining  men that although the Cariboo  has been a good dividend payer,  its best clays are still before it.  Good word comes from the work  being done on the old Sappho  claim, south of Douglas creek.  Some beautiful copper ore came  from this property in the early  days, but the lead was lost and  for some years nothing but assessment work has been done.

The trial is attended by such delays, such' quibblings, the spectacle is neither inspiring nor  proud.

For weeks past the civilized  world has been getting ready for  an approaching event, Christmas.  Merchants everywhere have been  buying-and displaying goods peculiar to the season. Men and  women everywhere have been  planning for the event aud what  they would make, it for the children. Young folk everywhere in  cities and towns have had their  thoughts turned to the old folk  and the old home, and many have  planned for Xmas dinner at the  old table. Children have talked  and wondered about Santa Claus  and have lived the day in sweet  anticipation.  What mean these things, this  piling up of wares the dear ones  would like, these whispered  words, this spirit of gift-giving  and home-going, this gladness  among the old, this glee among  the youth? From frozen north  to sunny south, east and west,  the human heart has felt the  thrill.  'Tis but survival of the spirit  of the song heard on Judaean  plains those centuries ago. 'Tis  but refrain of the heavenly anthem the shepherds heard, when  starting from their nightly vigil  with their flocks they heard the  world's first glad proclamation of  a coming peace. Swiftly to many  human hearts, but all too slowly  to the world, bas that peace  come. But the Christian world  yearly recalls the proclamation  in the season of Xmas cheer and  gift. In this season the heart of  Christian and infidel alike grows  mellower and man thus pays his  homage to the child born in Bethlehem that night.  In no perfunctory way, but out  of warm heart, we say, as we began, "A Merry Christmas."  Although verv little of the  Granby dividend of Si,620,000 for  1906 comes into the Boundary, we  should not begrudge it to the outside stockholders. There was  purchase money for properties  and pay-rolls for development  many years before there were  profits. The pay-roll abides, the  profits fluctuate.

Peculiar Accident to An   Engineer.  Edward  Spencer,  chief engineer of  the S.   S.   "Glide,"  of Montreal,   was  working   around   his   engine when a  hot bolt flew out  and   burned  his arm  terribly.   It was as if a ied hot s*. it had  been thrust'into it!   A supply of Zam-  Yuk balm  was   speedily   obtained and  first aid rencered.    The famous herbal  balm   alleviated  the  pain,  and to the  surprise of Spencer and all his friends,  at the  end of a week the   wound   was  completely healed.   This is only-one of  several cases reported recently in -.vhich  Zam-Buk has been  proved a wonderful  healer   of    burns,  cuts,   bruises,   and  abrasions.    It is  equally   effective  for  ulcers, sores, open wounds, scalp -ores,  ind blood   poisoning,   no matter how  long these have persisted.    Mrs. W. H.  T-xylor, of North Bay (Ont.), says:    "I  had a scaly   spot   about  as big as ten  cent piece   on  my  face.    I had it four  years, and hardly a night  during  that  time went by but what I  applied  cold  cream or some ointment  or other, but  it would   always   be   there,   and  the  warmer the weather the  worse  it got.  I recently   applied Zam-Buk,   and   in  about   a   week's   time   the   spot   had  disappeared completely."  One of the world's greatest analysts  says the healing power of Zam-Buk  is due to the rare herbal essences of  which it is entirely composed. For  rheumatism and sciatica it is also a  speedy cure. Its healing influence o.n  theskin is unequalled, and it is so pure  that the delicate skin of babes benefits  from its application. It cures rashes  and eruptions as well as more serious  ailments, such as blood poison, ringworm, abscesses, etc. Indeed, as a.  household balm itis working wonderful  cures all over the Dominion.

Bornite has a hardness of 3; chalcopyrite, 3-5 to 4. The  specific gravity of bornite is 5; chalcopyrite, a little above 4. There is a  greater supply of chalcopyrite than  bornite, but the latter is the richer  copper ore, as it sometimes analyzes aa  high as 70 per cent, while chalcopyrite  will contain about 35 per cent of copper.

The masses are  sometimes of enormous size, two having been found which weighed over 500  tons each, and were worth at the time  of their discovery nearly $500,000 each.  Barrel copper consists of small masse-  weighing a few pounds to size too  laige for the barrels; the latter size ia  called "mass." Stamp copper varie��  from nuggets of some little size to  microscopic flakes so light that they  float upon water and are lost in the  tailings, of the stamp mills because  their minute size renders them apparently independent of the laws of gravitation.

The company  is about 30 strong and the work  of the entire party was of a very  high order. It was not left for  a few good voices to give character to the entertainments, as is  frequently the case, all the parts  being well sustained, and both  operas being well rendered productions The audience on both  occasions was large and appreciative, and the company will receive a flattering patronage on  its next visit to Greenwood.  The artists of the evening  found the heating of the stage a  very comfortable improvement on  the usual order of things.  WORKS SMOOTHLY  Daily Reduction Capacity of No. 3  Furnace Much Above Normal.  No. 3 furnace of ihe B. C. Copper Co., is -working very,smoothly  and is reducing at the rate of  nearly "700 tons per day. Its actual capacity is nearly IS per cent  above its normal,, and when the  entire battery of three are in operation at the beginning of the  year the daily reduction "will be  about 2,000 tons.  Early in the new year the third  mammoth furnace of the Dominion Copper company will be ready  for business. The new year will  not be very old when the present  smelters of the district will be in  shape to handle over 6,000 tons  daily, aud that means two million  tons of ore, or nearly, are to be  mined and smelted in the Boundary in. 190*7.

Six years are not long  in the life of a mining country,  but marvelous has been the steady  growth in that time.  FOR EVENING DRESS  W. M.

Weathering- -The term "weathering" should be confined to changes in  cohesion and composition of rocks near  the surface that are due to the decomposing and oxidizing action of surface  waters. Its tendency is to destroy the  rock as a geological unit.  If a train of dynamite three and a  half mile, long were laid and the necessary shock applied at one end, the  entire masa would be decomposed into  its gasses in one second. It would  take about half an hour for an equally  long train of gunpowder to be consumed.    A short time ago platinum was used  yery extensively in connection with 14  carat gold. Now there is not a bit of  it being used that way. Its use to the  jewelry trade is confined almost entirely to diamond setting to give color  to the stones, and, of course, the higher  platinum goes up in price the costlier  tttcb diamonds will become.  special services.

C  SMELTING RATES ON LEAD ORE  This is an important topic for discussion, not only in the United States  vv Here". fie~s i lver: lead~in i Ti ei,_iTota6Ty_in"  Idaho, contribute annually over 60 per  cent of the output of lead and a large  part of the silver, but also in British  Columbia and elsewhere.  A little over a year ago the Canadian  government appointed a commission of  Americans and Canadians to investigate primarily the zinc resources of  British Columbia, and in their report,  just published, there is also data of an  interesting character bearing on the  smelting of silver-lead ore.  It is remarked that the silver lead  smelters of British Columbia are operating under less favorable conditions  than those of the United States. Why?  Because the supply of ere is less  abundant, and of less diverse and suitable character. The result is thai of  tho charge smelted only 66 2-3 tc. 75  per cent is ore (the remainder being  barren flux which costs just as much  to smelt per ton as ore does) against a-n  average of 80 oer cent in good practice  in the United States.

Copper was mined on Isle Roy ale in  Lake Superior many years before Columbus was born. Prehistoric races  used the metal for Licit" implements  and ornaments. The copper occurred  in native, or volcanic rocks, and the  primitive miners-dug il: out with no  better tools than stone 'sledges. Much  prospecting was done, judging by the  numerous holes and pits. No less than  50,000 of the crude tools uced in> the  early days have already been recovered.  Great masses of native copper have  been unearthed; many of these had  been worked for fragments of the  metal as cutting with the crude implements was almost impossible. A mass  weighing 12,000 pounds was carried  away in a vessel by the primitive miners. In later years mass copper, like  that from Isle Royale was eagerly  sought, but no copper of importance  was found. Many articles made from  Isle Royale copper are still being found  in mounds and graves throughout the  country, even as far away as Central  America.  Gas was first aised for illuminating  by William Murdoch, an Englishman,  in 1792.  In photography platinum produces a  picture which is regarded as absolutely  permanent.  Aluminum was first produced from  its ores in 1827, Frederick Wohler, of  Germany, having discovered the process.  The fire worshippers of Persia  burned natural gas, which they doubtless obtained by various mining operations.  The discoverer of coke as a substitute   for   coal   in   smelting   iron .was  Abraham Darby, ah Englishman, who  patented his process in 1750.  lolite is a bluish mineral with a vitreous luster. It is a complex silicate  of iron, aluminum and magnesium,  aad is found in metamorphic or igneous  rocks. It is also known as cordierite  and dichroite. The fine blue crystals  are cut for gems.

Says the Herald:  "Mining engineers who have returned from the Cobalt camp within tlie  last few days slate that the reason the  Guggenheims gave up their option of  the 400,000 shares of stock and pocketed  a loss of about S?l,700,0u0 is that the  famous bonanza vein, 'No. 47,' pinched  out a fevr feet below the surface. Other  veins were equally treacherous.  ''The Nipissing collapse has disheartened the management, according  to the report of the engineeos, and very  little work is being done at Cobalt. 'No  shipments have been nia_e lately, and  it is said that little work on the property will be done until spring.

Christmas comes to  giyetheseadded and beautiful empha-  sia. For at this season, though it may  not be confessed in words, it is the  spirit of the Christ-Child which touches every heart into tenderness. Most  of "the year life is implacable enough,  bat the searing effects of rivalry and  competition, and the struggle for the  individual foothold under conditions  which, while they make for greater  earning power, at the same time are  .increasingly strenuous, are all too  evident in a certain hardening of the  ���aattite.--^^^^^-^^^-^^----.---.:���.1-- __.   For moral and spiritual health, then,  the Christmas season comes to give to  the most cynical something of the  heart of a little child.  Indeed, no one who does not possess  this heart of tne child can enter into  this kingdom, whose divine character  and distinction and glory is���Love.  And that this spirit of the Christ  Child works miracles, it is only necessary to consider with what eagerness  Dand delight (with which perhaps a little  ahamefacednesB is mingled) hard-  headed men, in every community, give  themselves to the work of service. The  women are always administering, for  the angel is in. their gentle nature;  but thia is the. crowning triumph of  Love���that men whose habit it is to  laugh  at  sentiment,   are  found   not  merely writing out cheques for hospitals, which is .a. small affair, but giving  themselves to the work of service,  hurrying to the orphans' homes with  flowers and toys, and feeling a sudden,  lump in the throat as they witness the  of the sick children���"spirits in prison"���ministry to whom means service  to Him whose advent the Christian  world will so shortly celebrate.

The  rods, .t is said, become strongly magnetic and would sustain heavy spikes.

Many ex-Rosslanders have made fortunes since they left this city, and this  is the case particularly with those who  go' to other mining camps. Robert  Jacobs, who worked in Crow & Morris'  cigar store, and for a time was associated with the same firm in running a  tobacconist business in Greenwotd, is  among the fortunate ones. Abotv two  and a half years since, h. and his  brother, Jacob Jacobs, secured a property in Cobalt, Otil., which provi d to  be among the richest mines of the  camp. It is said that Robert and Jacob  have each made a million on the mine,  and, as it is still producing, they are  likely to make as much more. Av one  time Robert, when he lived here, was  unable to secure employment in a store  and he applied for and secured work as  a laborer in a smelter, and held the  place for several months. Now he is a  millionaire and can afford, if needs be,  to have a smelter of his own.���Kossland Miner.  A GOOD WORD FOR B- C  FOR  % BOUNDARY  VALLEY   LODGE  '-^jf?7^~ ��� No. 38.1.0. 0. F.  Meets every  Tuesday Evening at 8 00 iu tlie  I. ��. O. F. Hall.    A. cordial invi tation is ex  tended to all sojourning- brethern.  D. McGLA-HAN, S. E. BELT,  N. G. Rec.-Sec  Mr. Horne-Payne, chairman of the  British Columbia Electric Railway  company, at a recent meeting of the  shareholders of the company ,-in London, had the following, among other  good words, to say of British Columbia as a field for investment:  "We have introduced into this enterprise, not  ^70,000,"but approximately  one million   and   a  half pounds,   and  into other enterprises in   the  province  as much'again, and still  we have the  audacity  to look  ycu in  the face unabashed  and to   tell   you to put more  and still more money into the country.  In spite of the fact that British Columbia undoubtedly lies under  a cloud, in  the money   centers   of the world, or,  perhaps  I   should   say,   has  failed to  secure its fair proportion of the development   and   confidence  which   other  parts of Canada have been favored by  European capitalists, I have the same  unbounded confidence in its future that  I have always had, and the same complete faith that the province is destined  to support a   very large and thriving  population of happy  people  within its  beautiful territory.    How is it possible  that it can be otherwise with a country  which  possesses   such   vast coal  and  iron deposits, such   magnificent forest  and  unlimited  water  power to manufacture  all   that   man  requires,'even  gold and silver, and a market ou  both  sides for its produce to the east in  the  teeming   agricultural   regions of   the  Northwest provinces   and to the west  in China  and Japan.    The prosperity  of   British   Columbia    has    not   yet  started.    Its coal output bis reached in  the Crow's  Nest  dis. rict 3,000 tons  a  day, in the Coast district, 1,000 tons a  day, and the   people   are  proud of it;  but   who   can  doUDt, looking  ten   or  twenty years ahead, that the coal output   will   be   40,000   tons   a   day,   the  country wilH.e-"sending��� millions-and=  millions   of feet   of lumber   to   build  prairie homes, and the country will be  smelting its own iron, its own copper  and its own   lead   in' vast quantities,  and will be  supplying the prairie with  untold   quantities   of fUta,  vegetables  and fruit, and many other   things that  they cannot produce themselves.   The  prosperity   of   British   Columbia will  really commence to date from the time  when they commence to attract capital  from the Old World investing countries  in large sums."  j Chrysanthemums  I \  Chrysanthemums !���    J]'  We wish to announce to our patrons and customers  that we now have nearly 20,000 feet under glass  ... m ...

To relieve a cough or break up a cold  in twenty-four hours, the following  simple formula, the ingredients of  which can be obtained of any good  prescription druggist at small cost, is  all that will be required: Virgin Oil  of Pine (Pure), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a hall  pint. Shake well and take in teaspoon  ful doses every four hours. Thedesiied  resuhs can not be obtained unless the  ingredients are pbre. It is therefore  better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the mixture yourself. Virgin Oil ot Pine (Pure) should  be purchased in the original half ounce  vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is securely sealed in  a round wooden casf which protects  the Oil Irom exposure to light. Around  the wooden case is an engraved wrapper with the name���"Virgin Oil of  Pine (Pure)"���plainly printed thereon.  There are many imitations and cheap  productions of Pine, but these only  create nausea, and never effect the  desired results, 11-24  I    Fok  Salu���Residence of   Mr.  j Flynn, situated on Church street,  near school house.
