Good house on the  property. Choice soil and location Apply WALTER V. JACKSON, Creston.  The live topio rib Nelson is tho eon-  struoiion of a telephone lino from Snlino  to Nolson. In n very fow yoars Croston  will bo tho supply point for the Shoep  Crook district, nnd it is also possible that  tho local tolephono company will iu tho  near future glvo their patrons tho benefit of a loug-liuo system they havo now  in onlbryo.    , ,, ,,  It would appear from what we can  glean, that there is a prospect of the  Alice mine resuming operations in the  near future. This Creston mine and  concentrator has been shut down for  some time; but if report is correct, the  closure created a great deal of surprise  among the local experts, as the known  large ore bodies had not been touched.  Now there is a bright possibility of  resumed activity under new ownership.  Messrs. Wm. Bradley and Ed. Ehren-  bsrg, of Spokane, two eminent mining  men, collaborated at Creston on Monday  and Tuesday last with Messrs. T. G.  Proctor and G. Lowenberg, the latter  gentleman looking after the interests of  parties at this end.  A visit was paid to the mine on Monday afternoon. The visitors on returning expressed their appreciation of all  they had. seen, and it is highly probable  that a deal will be consummated in a  few days.  The opening up of this property again  means much for the Creston district.  A few years ago 40 men were employed  at the mine and concentrator.  Extending Their Business  Mike Glaser arrived from Buffalo on  Sunday,; where he has been spending  the winter. In conversation with him  ws learned that he was particularly  struck with the great improvements  that had been made during his sojourn  in the cent belt, Mike tells a good  story that is worth repeating. He says  that prior to his departure from Buffalo,  a kind friend stowed away a touch of  '��������� Mountain Dew '' in his grip, and oh  discovering it he pushed it further out  of sight, as he and that color had not  been on speaking terms for a long time.  But (Ah, that but!), he became  acquainted with a bunch of men travel's ing^^w^st,: and,they, were^1 niarking  time till they got to Cranbrook. When  they got there they made an" awful discovery; The city had been pronounced  ���������'dry" for tho Sawbath; It was.then that  Mike opened up his heart, and also his  grip, sympathizing with them iu their  affliction, and at the same time offering  to alleviate their suffering. He produced the " soldier " that had beeii lying dormant in his grip since he left  Buffalo, remarking at the time that he  could get all he required when he got  to Creston, There's the joke. When  he jumped off the train he invited all  the rubbernecks to celebrate with him  his arrival. When ho found out that  '��������� dry " Sundays prevailed here he nearly dropped through his pants.  We havo heard a whole lot of talk  from many of our young buoks about  the baseball blub they were going to  start when the spring opened. Suppos-  ing they get busy now and bo in time.  FOR RENT.~-A throo roomod house  $8.00 per month. Apply Mrs. Mnllan-  daino.  Keeping pace with the times,-.the  Creston Mercantile Company has just  established an innovation that will no  doubt be greatly appreciated by the public. They have extended the usefulness  of the business, auu opened up a shoe  furnishing store, at which all the latest  styles of shoes will be shown. The  new branch will bo found in the Mercantile block, immediately adjoining  the post office. Here will be shown an  extensive line of the famous Walk-Over  shoes, as well as the Amherst. The  business of the Creston Mercantile Co.  is increasing to a remarkable degree,  and they evidently intend beeping pace  with the growing trade.  Mr. T. G. Proctor, of Nelson, -who  has been visiting Oreston this week,  took up a party of Americas Mining  Engineers to show them, the Alice mine.  He was disgrssted to discover that seme  hoodlums had wantonly destroyed some  of the mine's equipment.    Several bub-  Mr. T. M. Edmonson gave a very  practical exposition of stump burning  for the benefit of a crowd on Thursday  .last. A stump was chosen near .the  Review office, and he proceeded to~bore  a hole in the base of the stump with a  ship's augur. This augur was one inch  in diameter, and he drove sheer through  the stump, a distance of #8 inches, in a  trifle under seven minutes. This completed, he built a small fire near one, side  of the tree at the month of the hole; and  it was quickly perceived the advantage  he thus obtained over more primitive  methods. The hole he had bored acted  as a draft and very shortly the stump  was blazing furiously. We kept tabs  on the effect, and we report that the  stump was burned through the following morning, when, according to instructions we placed the top part of the  stump on .top of the burning embers.  We noticed a few hours afterwards that  the roots had begun to blaze, and these  burnt clear to the level of ihe ground,  and some of them burnt- to several  inches below the surface. For clearing  land for townsite purposes, there has  not jet been discovered any simpler sor;  effective method for economy, and we  give Mr. Edmonson great credit for having gratuitously given a demonstration  for the benefit of our local men.

Mr. Baechlor put up a  footbridge aoross the canyon that is now  being used considerably. Residents at  this end of the town bless him.  Geo.

The snattresseSi ������0 ia number,  which had been properly boarded up  and secured from the pack rats, were  found scattered on the floor and ticsarly  ruined, and considerable other damage  done.  People who are trying to build up this  country do not relish such scurvy tricks.  When the parties who are responsible  for this are spotted is. la Kelson ^ail fes  them.        _  Once again the iedge finds a "new  home. Colonel Lowery ia pulling out  of Greenwood and migrating to Nelson,  a scene of many former batt7.es in his  journalistic career, Inhialast number  of the Ledge printed at his old stand at  Greenwood, he has several things to  remark anent the closing down of the  Greenwood smelter.' Perhaps the most  sarcastic and pointed one is as follows:  u It is said that & committee repse*  senting a large number of the shareholders of the B.O. Copper do, /will-  shortly visit Greenwood,to investigate  the methods of the management. I* so,  the miners zaay not be the ones that  will walk."

The Fernie District Ledger brought  out a special edition a few days ago to  announce the good news that an agree-  } raent had been come to between the  mine owners and miners of Fernie and  Michel, an<3 now all is serene with the  big coal camps of the Crows' Nest.  The Ledger thinks it is a very satisfactory arrangement, as the matter is now  settled for at least two years. The  miners have gained several concessions,  and no strike, as threatened, will prevail.  "We would like to hear from some of  our readers their views with regard to  altering the date of our annual celebration from July 1st to May 24th. As  we pointed out in a previous issue, Dominion Day is in the height of the strawberry season, and it is thought that Victoria day would be more suitable. If  there is to be any move in this matter  it will have to be done qnick, as May  24th is in sight.  Some of the hack alleyways are in a  disgraceful condition- Ther^ m^^ht be  something doing if the Health Officer  took a walk through some of them.

Cool evenings, however j are a persistent factor for the  enjoyment of repose. The early springs are  very favorable for gardening and- budding  fruit tree. The autunins are very long  and the weather is of an ideal Indian summer. Violets and wild, strawberries" bloom,  as late as November.    ���������',,#*'  While there is a splendid local demand  for products, the principal markets for the  Creston district are the big centres of the  Crows' Nest Pass and ail cities as far east  as Fort William and Chapleau, and as far  north as Athabasca Ivandmer. We are ab-  somtely the closest producing point to the  markets, therefore we receive, higher prices,  by reason of our products reaching the marketsin shorter time and better in condition  than can be done by any other district.  ���������"������������������*������''���������  Soil  -CThe soil is an alluvial clay on a clay subsoil.
