If the report of Nelson public  school for the= same month be examined, it will be seen that almost 50  per cent of the pupils enrolled in all  the divisions were present at every  session. There is no reason why  Greenwood public school should not  have as good a recoid as this, for the  majority of those who were irregular  in their attendance during the past  month were kept at home for some  trifling cause���trifling in comparison  with the great loss they themselves  are sustaining, and the needless annoyance and inconvenience they ir��-  flict on the teacher bv such absence.  It is quite evident to all that such irregularity has an injurious effect upon  the general tone of the whole school,  and that it is impossible for an}'  teacher, while such conditions prevail,  to raise the standing of a school. But  the results of such carelessness and  indifference fall most heavily upon the  offender himself���imperfect attendance must inevitably mean imperfect  education. The foundations of his  education are not laid broad and deep,  and thus seriously handicapped he is  obliged to go out into the world and  face its stern realities.  It is, therefore, urgently requested  that parents give this matter their  most serious consideration, and that  they uphold the hands of the teachers  by having their children   attend every  session,  J. L. Watson.  Among claims in the Greenwood  high-grade belt, attracting attention  of late, the Preston, located about two  miles east of the town, on the Phoenix  wagon road,has recently forged rapidly  to the front. The property adjoins  the Last Chance, Crescent and Cora-  Canadian. The two former are shipping and the last is being actively developed.  On the Preston there are three distinct leads, paralleling each other and  distinctly traceable along the full  length of the claim. Each1 of these is  high grade ore and has given assays of  from $78 to $255 per ton. From No 1  vein, so called from having been more  developed than the other two, a shipment has. been made to the Trail  smelter, yielding returns of $78.20;per  ton. The ore for this shipment was  obtained from open cuts on the-vein,  which is from eight to ten inches wide  at the surface. A shaft has been sunk  on the vein ahd is in good ore at the  bottom. -���. ���  No. 2 vein has been trenched along  the surface for a distance of 350 feet  to depths varying from 3 to 10 feet.  Ore is showing throughout the whole  cut and is of an average width of 16 in.  This ore is identical in character  with that taken from the Skylark,  whiwh lies a short distance to the south  of the Preston.  No. 3 vein has also been exposed by  open cutting, showing good pay ore  throughout.- -.    '.'   - ���'���    ;.-���'*-  The veins have a dip of '45 degrees  from the surface of the hill, and can  be mined most economically by tunnels from the lower levels of the claim.  These tunnels can be run to cut all the  veins.  There is at present about a half car  of'ore in the ore house and several  cars will be shipped in the near future  ahd regular shipments easily maintained.  The leads are quartz carrying anti-  monial silver and gold. The formation is fissile slate and diorite.  The Preston is surveyed and has an  area of about 48 acres. Active work  will shortly be continued on the property, and, as before stated, ore shipped  regularly.  It seems certain that the prospects  of   this  mine   becoming   a.dividend-  payer during the next few months are  -very-br i gh t._-^----^-----^-^--^^z.^_-_-g_i___a____._  THE  HELEN.  u An important deal was closed this  week by Chicago capitalists, represented here by Alex. Miller, by which  the Helen, one of the best known  mines in the high-grade belt, was  bought and paid for. The property is  located on the boundary line of Greenwood and Anaconda, and is only a  quarter of a mile from the B. C. Copper company's smelter. The price  paid was on the basis of $50,000 for  the mine, and 'the new owners have  provided ample funds for active work  to be vigorously prosecuted.  The Helen has a most interesting  history and was one of the first high-  grade properties in Greenwood tb ship  ore. The original owners, years ago,  packed with horses considerable ore to  Marcus, Wash. The ore found on the  claim ib as high grade as any ever  found on the belt, some of it running  up to S500 per ton, chiefly gold. The  ore averages between $125 and $150 per  ton. As is generally the caBe with  mines of this character here, the Helen  has several leads paralleling each  other. Three of them have had surface work only done. On the lead on  which work has been concentrated,  which, for the sake of identification  is termed No. 1, a shaft is down about  100 feet, and drifts and crosscuts on  the vein for about 180 feet. The width  of the No 1 vein is from 8 to 16 inches  and is of" a massive character and  clean ore throughout. Five or six  tons are now ready sacked for shipment and regular carload shipments  will be begun immediately and maintained. An excellent wagon road runs  to the workings where there is a good  shaft house, blacksmith shop and all  necessary equipment.  The-formation is pvroclastic greenstone overlying granite.  Trenches have been  dug the entire  length of the claim across the leads,  proving their continuity- This mine  has undoubtedly a great future and the  new owners expect that by putting on  a good force of men the mine can produce as much ore as the Provinence,  and other big shippers in the high-  grade belt. Previous shipments from  the Helen gave results in the neighborhood of $135.  It is understood that the new owners have sufficient working capital to  thoroughly develop the mine and install  all machinery necessary.  Chicago people seem to .be gradually  getting control of the cream of the  produciug mines in the high-grade  belt. At present capital from that  city controls the Providence and the  Barbara atid holds large interests in  many other properties, while money  from almost every state in the Union  is invested in various other mines  nearby. In the Helen the Chicago  gentlemen interested have undoubtedly  secured one of the hest' properties in  the camp. .  -. ..  THE STRATHMORE.  Since the Strathmore7was incorporated work has been actively prosecuted, and with such excellent results  that several of the most prominent  shareholders from Colfax visited the  camp a few days ago to see for themselves the progress of the work. The  visitors were John Richardson, James  Gordon and E. Torrence. Mr., Tor-  rence. is owner of the Fidelity National  Bank building at Spokane, and is a  well known aud influential citizen of  the neighboring state. It was the first  visit of the last named gentleman,  but they all left the camp much impressed with the outlook for big results in mining.  The result of the good returns being  made in this camp to outside investors  may be so far-reaching as to guarantee that at all times deserving claims  will, if offered at the right figure and  on reasonable, terms, find.ready purchasers. The good name the camp  enjoys among outside investors, particularly from the United States, is a  most encouraging factor in the future  development of the bonanta ore  bodies lying right in Greenwood town.  THE   KREMONT.  Quite recently the J remont claim,  situated between the Providence and  the Strathmore,=has been-secured _>y-a-  local company, composed of citizens  of Grand Forks, Denoro and Greenwood. Work is being actively prosecuted under the direction of C. Scott  Galloway. The company is working  on an extension of the Providence lead  by an open cut, and, judging from the  float, carrying native silver which has  been'found; Ihey are in close proximity tc this lode.  There are two shafts on the property, about 40 and 60 feet deep respectively, and both are in good ore.  There are numerous open cuts.  It is the intention of the new company to vigorously continue active development work, and it is expected  that within a very short time yet another shipping mine will be added to  the already big list of high-grade  shippers which encircle Greenwood.  Next week a large party of Chicago  capitalists is expected to arrive in the  city. They are coming to inspect their  interests and, if satisfied, it will be  another strong factor in the development of tbe camp.  William Bailey of Chicago spent  several days during the past week in  the camp and left well pleased with  rhe result of his visit. To a reporter  of The Times he expressed himself as  being much impressed with the showing on the high-grade claims and it is  fully expected will, before long, be  actively connected with one or more of  the high-grade claims. While here,  he visited the Providence, Helen,  Strathmore, Barbara, Skylark, Preston and Last Chance. It was Mr.  Bailey's first visit but he slated that  it would not be his last by any means.  Mr. Bailey has a large following in  the Windy City, and the results of his  visit here wiil doubtless mean more  capital from Chicago for Greenwood BOUNDARY  OREEK   TIMES.

The annual meeting-" of Greenwood  Board of Trade was held on Wednesday last in the office of Mayor Naden.  A fair attendance was present, consisting- chiefly of those who have stood  by the board from the beginning-. The  secretary's work for the year showed  consinerable work done and in hand  by the board, a. large ��part of it with  the co-oper?.tion of other boards of  Eastern British Columbia.  The financial statement showed a  large number of members in arrears,  and a resolution was passed instructing the secretary to notify all such  that, in accordance with a resolution  of the preceding meeting-, a payment  of five dollars would be accepted from  each memoer in settlement in full to  March 31st, last, and the names of all  not so paying would be erased from  the rolls.  The members present expressed regret that so many business men had  not identified themselves with the  board, and it was decided to hold no  further meetings until such time as at  least fifteen members signed a requisition and  agreed to be present thereat.  The officers elected for the ensuing  year were: W. M. Law, president; C  H. Fair, vice-president, and \V. G.  Gaunce.secretary treasurer.

Railroad legislation in this  province is very much like the  game of Klondike���not even the  man behind the "dummy" knows  how it's going to turn out.  The monthly report of the  Greenwood school, and the comments by the priucipal, should  receive serious consideration by  parents. Too often the whole responsibility for the lack of progress in the school is placed upon  the teacher, while as a rule the  parents, through carelessness, are  to blame.  The Greeuwood Board of Trade  appears to have difficulty in getting business men to attend the  meetings or pay their dues. This  difficulty could be overcome���if  numbers are the chief requisite���  by. having a larger number of  officers, say, honorary president  and ten vice presidents, with  power to add to their numbers as  the membership increases. This  might add to the numbers if not  to the efficiency of the board.  Much dissatisfaction is felt  among local stockholders in the  Providence atthe manner .iu which  the business of the company is  being conducted. In the two years  previous to the time���five months  ago���when the present management took charge, the mine paid  regular dividends. Since that  time noi dividends have been paid,  although the old management, it  is said, left large reserves of ore  in sight. Pull details will be  given in a future issue.

Never in the history of the Boundary has the district had a brighter outlook than today.    With the successful de/  velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating  at a very small cost,   the  continued opening up of new high grade properties and their successful and profitable ^  -^operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds and (||<.  ./!> bigger values-    It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  ^r and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte,    If you  ~*0 therefore want to participate in its   future prosperity, now is the time to invest both in mines and real estate,   For  4^ NINETY DAYS we intend'giving you a chance to make a safe and profitable investment.

To the eye it presents a snow  white appearance marked; with wind  waves and ripples similar, to a tropic  ocean. Yet it is not. snow-like in its  torrid heat, a heat that-is intense.  The desert contains vast bodies of  crystalline salt, which; are used to  sc-me extent in the herding of cattle.  Its gypsum product has never been  given attention, but it issaidunliinited,  quantities of the mineral exist.  In 1841 a nugget of gold weighing  22 ounces was found in an old river  bed in the county Wicklow, Ireland.  This is the only "''instance' of a mass of  gold having been found in Ireland.  Active search of the river bed was  made for other nuggets, but it never  proved up others, and the popular supposition is that the 22-ounce nugget  was brought into Ireland and lost by  its former owner. ' ;  One of the most peculiar finds of  gold known was in Paragua in 1857,  when a mass of rock that had evidently  fallen from one of the high 'mountains',,  was found to contain free gold in mas-!  ses, one nugget weighing 55 pounds  and the whole rock mass is said to  have yielded 241 pounds of gold. The  rock was found at the. foot of a high  peak, but though dilligent search was  made for its origin, it was never found.  There are known 43 minerals in  which gold is contained; 14 minerals  contain mercury; 101 minerals are  known to carry copper; lead is .found  in 83; zinc is known to occur in 23; the  tin minerals are limited to 4; there are  24 ores carrying nickel; 87 minerals  Have btten proven to contain iron;  manganese is distributed through 47  minerals; gold, as is well known, occurs almost wholly native, tut it is  found sparingly mineralised by tellurium in sylvanite, nagyagite aud  petzite; antimony is found in 11  species, and 19 carr3* bismuth. |��j  =���Oresare^cornpoundsiof^-the^metals,-  not metals in  the  native state.

Royalty at the rate of 10 cents per  ten of 2,000 pounds is collected on the  gross output.  Entries for land for agricultural purposes may be made personally at the  local land office foi '.he district in  which the land to be taken is situated,  or if the homesteader desires, he" may,  on application to the Minister of the  Interior at Ottawa, the Commissioner  of Immigration at Winnipeg, or the  local agent for the District, within  which the land is situated, receive  authority for some one to make entry  for him.  A fee of S10 is charged for a homestead entry.  A settler who has received an entry  for a homestead, is required to perform  the conditions connected therewith  under one of the following plans:���  (1) At least six months' residence  upon and cultivation of the land in  each year during the term of three  years.  It is the practice of the Department  to require a settli-r to bring 15 acres  under cultivation, but if he prefers be  may substitute stock; and  20  head  of  attle, to be actually his own property  with buildings for their accommodation, will be accepted instead of the  cultivation.  (2) If the father (or mother, if the  father is deceased) of any person who  is eligable to make a. homestead entry  under the provisions of the Act, resides upon a farm in the vicinity of  the land entered for by such person as  a homestead, the requirements of the  Act as to residence prior to obtaining  patent may be satisfied by such person  residing with the father or mother.  (3) If the settler has his permanent  residence upon farming land owned  by him in the vicinity of his homestead, the requirements of the Act as  to residence may be satisfied by residence upen the said land.  Application for a patent should be  made at the end of three years- before  the local assent, sub agent or a homestead inspector. 7  Before making an application for a  patent, the settler must give six  months' notice in writing to the Commissioner of Dominion Lands at Ottawa, of his intention to do so.

The method of applying hydrogen  peroxide in cases of cyanide poisoning  is thus given by its discoverer, Dr.  Rudolph Kobert, at one time professor of toxicology at the University of  Dorpat: Wash the stomach with .5 per  per cent solution of potassium permanganate of hydrogen peroxide; then  inject the solution of hydrogen peroxide hypodermically in small doses  and considerable caution.  One of the most recent determinations of the density of *he earth -was  that of Messrs. Richarz and Menzel.  These gentlemen commenced their investigations fifteen years before they  published an important paper on this  subject before the Royal Prussian  academy. The investigation receives  additional weight from the fact that it  was initiated by the great physcist,  Helmholtz. They found that the  average density of the planet was  5.505. Using this figure, they determined the weight of our planet to be  about 5,690 trillion metric tons, with a  possible error, amounting 1.06. This  error in percentages is very small, but  the immensity of the earth's mass can  be appreciated by the fact that this  small error of a trifle over 1 per cent.  would make a mass 25,000 times greater  than, the mass of the whole of the  Himalayas.���Mining Reporter,  H) r  rifP  BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES  000-<X><WX>OOX)00000<>OOOOCH>0<I  | Mining News |  \ of the 'Boundary. $  OOoOOWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  J. C. Haas, M. E., was in the city  this week, examining the work being  done on the Golconda.  Shipments this week from the high-  grade belt ���were: EPU one car, and  Elkhorn and .Last Chance each -two  cars.' _   It is understood that the Diamond  Hitch property on the North Fork of  Kettle river will resume operations  shortly.   John Mack put a force of men to  work on the Spokane Tuesday morning. The Spokane lies north of the  Providence. '  Thursday morning Geo. A. McLeod  left Grand Forks with a gang of men  to start work on the McF"in!ey group,  North Fork of Kettle river.  7 Clement Vacher, superintendent of  the Sally group near Beaverdell ou  the West Fork, was in the cit}' this  week attending a meeting of his company. ;  Bob Yuill has just completed assessment on the Golden Joint and Northern  Belle, on Pass Creek, owned by Carl  Nelson. The lead is about fifteen feet  in width, carrying copper-gold values.  Carl Nelson, formerly of the Norden  hotel here, but now of White-fish-Mont.  was in town this week looking after  his mining interests in the Boundary.  He commences work next week on a  group of five claims which he owns on  Hardy mountain, near Grand Forks.  A deal is pending for the purchase  of the C. P. R. property near Franklin camp, North Fork of Kettle river,  the purchasers being Canadian capitalists. The claim is one of the high-  grade gold and copper properties of  the North Fork. A recent assay from  this property showed returns of S26.50  in gold.    Ellis Lovejoy, a prominent mining  engineer from Columbus, Ohio, visited  Greenwood during the past week. Mr.  Lovejoy was a fellow graduate with  Mr. Frederic Keffer, manager of the.  B. C- Cppper company, and while here  visited-the Mother Lode, and Emma  mines. A full aecouut of the visit to  'the Emma will appear next week.  John East, one of the first prospectors in the Boundary and now owning  a frflit ranch on the Kettle river, is  a visitor in the city. Mr. East, made  locations at Camp McKinney in 1887,  the year the Cariboo was discovered.  He vvas also one of the first to prospectors in Deadwood camp. He was  one of the original owners of the Primrose, adjoining the Mother Lode, and  located in 1894, and located the Sunset in June, 1891, abou_ a month after  the discovery of the Mother Lode.  John Moran returned from Los  Angeles, California, Friday last  H��_ was away a couple of months  and greatly enjoyed the trip. When  asked as to the probability of worlt  beinp, started at an early date on the  Big Copper in Copper camp, Mr.  Moran said he could not give a definite  answer at the present time, but hoped  that (-.ome arrangement could be made  with the owners of the other half interest by which development could be  ..startedVand the mine become sijregular  shipper. For years the Big Copper  has been considered one of the best of  the low grade properties in the Boundary district, but owing to a dog-in-the-  manger policy pursued by the owners  the property has bean lying idle, and  of no benefit to either the owners or  the district.  The HaU Mining and Smelting company of Nelson has closed down its  operating lead stack for want of ore.  Only one stack has been used since  February 25. At the Trail smelter the  single operating lead stack, out of  three available ones, will close down  almost immediately for want of silver-  lead ore. The trouble has arisen from  the Sloean . miners over-estimating  their probable output when it was  agreed to let the St. Eugene ship  abroad. The St, Eugene agreed to  supply the difference required to keep  the home smelters busy, but although  it has each month sent more than half  of the ore supplied to Trail and Nelson, tbe other silver-lead mines have  failed to output anything like the  amount originally estimated. A great  deal of dissatisfaction exists over the  working of the concession granted to  the St. Eugene company, but the company is sending what it agreed to  Trail and Nelson, and has a big contract to fill with European plants.

At the meeting- of city council Monday nig-ht there were present the mayor  and Aldermen Bunting*, Caulfield, Parker, and Smailes.  Minutes of previous meeting read  ancl adopted.  Communications were. read or  rather partly read���when . the city  c'terk asked the city solicitor to "kindly  choke that snipe." Whether it was a  syndicate cig\ or not was not brought  out in the discussion that followed,  but if it were, an unfair advantage  was taken of the city clerk while he  was busily engaged in reading communications, and could not very well  attend to the work in hand and keep  his eye on the cig at the same time.  After Alderman Caulfield had called  the reporter's attention to the fact that  the cig. was ti*ore than, half gone, the  city solicitor blttshingly "choked the  snipe," and the reading of communications was resumed.  From St. Louis,   stating that water  pipe was ready for inspection and that  a representative of the  city   be sent to  ' look it over.
