Late last Friday night Mr., Ryan  and two companions, Mrs. Lennon  and Mrs. Rawlinson, started from  Weston, in the west end of the city,  for Danville on a gasoline speeder.  When the speeder had gained a high  speed, a hand-car suddenly loomed  up in from of them, coming toward  them at a good ^pc-ed. It was too  late to jump, and when the crash  came the three pi-rsons on the speeder were thrown violently to the  ground. Mrs. Lennon was badly  cut about the head, and it was at  first thought that her injuries would  prove fatal; Mrs. Rawlinson had a  shou'der badly cut and sustained  other injuries, while Mr. Ryan was  so badly bruised and cut ihat he is  still in' the hospital, to which the  three injured persons were taken  immediately after the accident.  The two women have since recovered sufficiently to be removed to  their homes.  The men on the handcar saw the  approaching speeder in time. to  jump, and they escaped   uninjured.  Easter will be celebrated in the  Baptist cbnrch with appropriate  music, addresses and decorations at  both services. Morning theme:  "Easter's Glad Assurance"; evening,  "The Open Tomb ;>nd the Angel  Guard." . Afternoon school lesson,  "Emanuel at Emmaus."  Rev. Charles W. King will conduct an Easter service in the Danville school house on Sunday at 3  p.m.  The Riveeside nurseries have  shipped the bulk of their  nursery stock. Small shipments  will, of course, be sent out for a  month or so yet.  Death Rev. Dr. Peter Wright  A Vancouver dispatch, dated the  7th inst, ontains the news of the  death of Rev. Dr. Peter Wright,  aged 75 years, formerly of Grand  Forks, at his Kitsilano home. Three  sons live in Vancouver, and the  daughter, Mrs. Mary Burish, in Toronto.  Dr. Wright was ordained in the  Presbyterian ministry in 1870, and  held churches at Montreal, Inger-  soll, Qubec, Strathford, Portage la  Prairie, Vancouver, Nelson, Grand  Forks and Columbia. He had been  on the retired list for the past six  or seven years.  The late Dr. WTright was born in  Westruther, Berwickshire, Scotland,  in the year 1839. In 1S59 he a'r  rived in Canada and studied in  Knox college, Toronto. His first  work in this counfry was public  school teaching and as principal of  the Norwood schools and St. Mary's  high school he won many friends.  In 1886 he secured his degree of  bachelor of divinity and was ordained in 1870. Since that time he has  gradually moved west through numerous pastorates. In 1S64 Dr.  Wright married Miss Agnus McGregor of Baltimore, Ont., who  survives him.  In Vancouver, the Kitsilano Presbyterian church is a fitting monument to his energy, and as its  founder he will be long and fondly  remembered. His scholarship was  only second to his spiritual fervor  and prominent among the qualities  which endeared him to his congregation was his parental interest.  His sermons were just like his home  talks with his people, only broadened  a little to fit the general needs. He ���������  never stormed nor ranted, but stood  which brings progress and perhaps  he was able ������������������ to see even further  since "Beulah" lay so near at hand.  A characteristic quotation of Dr.  Wright's 'was: "Whatever else you  do, friends, sing anyway; prayer is  needful, but one day prayer will  die; preaching is needful, but there  will be no preaching in heaven;  there will be uo need, for it there,  but singing will go' on forever and  ever."  Rev. Dr. Wright was one of the  pioneer Presbyterian ministers of  Grand Forks, preaching in Knox  church and the old Coumbia church.  He left this city in 1901 for Nelson,  later removing to Vancouver. His  aon, Peter, was postmaster of Columbia for a. number of years, aud  was also a member of the financial  firm of Hay, McCaflum it Wright.  At'the time of his death, Dr. Wright  was a property owner in Grand  Forks, and two of his sons are still  on the voters' list here, although  they have been living in Vancouver  for the past ten years.  The news of the de<th of Rev.  Dr. Wright will be learned with regret by the people of this city.  OF  Favorable Eeplies Are Received From the Fish  Commissioners .  Attorney-General Bowser Is  Paid Back-Landed Compliment  Russell-Wheatcroft  Tuesday about noon,   April   7,   a  happy event took place at   the  residence of  Mr. and Mrs. Wheatcroft,  Second  street,   Grand   Forks, when  their daughter, Miss Ruth Elizabeth  Fry. Wheatcroft, was united in marriage to Bowden Stanley  Russell,.of  Sundre,    Alta.    -JXev.    Charles  W.  King,   of   the   Baptist church, tied  the   nuptial ' knot,  and   Frank   G.  Wheatcroft, the bride's brother, and  Mrs. Galloway, of Cascade, were the  signatory witnesses.    A score  or so  of Grand Forks and Cascade friends  of the bridal pair were   present and  partook   of   the     noon    "wedding  breakfast" which followed the ceremony.    A number of  groups   were  photographed,   one  of   which   included   four   generations    in     the  Wheatcroft family   present  at   the  ceremony.   'The young couple took  the    1.30   p.m.   train   for  Calgary  and other  points, where  they   will  spend their   honeymoon.    The will  reside at Sundre, where Mr. Russell  has a ranch.  There was a good attendance at  the meeting of the Grand Forks  board of trade on Wednesday night.  President DeCew occupied the chair.  The greater portion of the evening  was taken up with routine business  and by reading of communications,  which were more numerous than is  ususally the case.  Favorable replies from the federal and provincial fish commissioners  in regard to the board's request for  the restocking of Chaistiha lake and  the Kettle river with fish fry, and  early action in this matter was  promised.  The Chahko Mika carnival at-  Nelson in July was discussed at  length. The secretary an-  nouned that another young  lady had entered the princess contest. The matter of handling the  contest was left in the hands of the  chairman of the entertainment committee and.the secretary.  The chairman of the publicity  committee reported progress in regard to new advertising matter  which is to be issued in the near  future.  The secretary was instructed to  write to Attorney-General Bowser,  congratulating him on the legislation recently passed to compel the  Doukhobor community to obey the  iaws of the country, and to express  a hope that the same would be enforced at an early date.  The chairmen of the various committees were asked to bring in an  estimate of their expected expenditure during the current year at the  next meeting in order to facilitate  the work of the finance  committee.  Fred Clark met with a painful  accident about 5 o'clock last night.  While engaged in getting goods  from the top shelves in hisstore, the  ladder on which he was standing  slipped and he fell to the floor. He  fell on his shoulder, breaking his  collar bone and also receiving a bad  cut on the head. He was removed to  his residence, and his recovery is  now progressing favorably.  The new OP.II. steel bridge over  the Kettle river in this city has been  completed, and the false work removed. Nothing now remains of  the old wooden structure but  portions of the piers.  E. C. Henniger on Wednesday  received a shipment of three Stnde-  baker automobiles. One is a seven  possenger car, the other two being  smaller ones.  Mr. Henniger took a number of  the local millionaires, including The  Sun man, for a trial spin around  the city in the seven-passenger car  yesterday. Although the price of  this car is only a little over $2000,  it looks as well and is as comfortable as a SJ500 car. It is almost  noiseless, and runs with as little  small i vibration as a sewing machine. It  can be run at a speed of one mile an  hour on a high gear.  Secretary Had den this week received from Victoria the prize  money for the late   provincial poul-  before his people with hands out���������  stretched, showing them in his own  person the applied tenets of Christ.  Dr. Wright has  been  censured  for  , try show in this city, and he is now  busy,   distributing   cheques   to  the  prize winnejs.  Charles   Peterson,   of  the Pacific  keeping  his  eye on the "Beyond,"   hotel, left this morning for   a  but it is the  horizon-rivitted   eye  ne.ss trip to Spokane.  Ore Shipments  During the past week the Granby  mines at Phoenix shipped 26,357  tons of ore to the smelter in this  city; shipments for year, 431,281  tons. Granby smelter treatments,  busi-! 22,860 tons; for the year, 321,(157  tons.  J yMMMtmiwiKfttuuvi w*������ttt * m**1 u  THE   SUN,    GRAND   FORKS,   B.C.  V  OJlp  m\w Gkanft Storks ������mt  G.

Miller for attorney-general.  It is a lucky thing' for the  people of the province that  the life of the Victoria government expires in about a  year.    The changes made in the  tariff by the Ottawa government are perfectly satisfactory  to the trusts and the mill  owners. The farmers of the  Northwest, however, are no  better off than they wrere under the old schedule.  Many publishers of city  and country newspapers have  been compelled to return to  work since the funds at Victoria began to run short.  Inquisition in Texas  The business of spying on citizens  in order to enforce unpopular tax  laws is one industry that does not  flourish in Houston, Texas. One  enterprising inquisitor has had this  fact forcibly impressed upon him  He got the information throngh  writing to Houston's Tax Commissioner, J. J. Pastoriza, as follows:)  "I have furnished the assessors  of the cities and towns in Massachusetts with authentic information  of the stock holdings of their residents in foreign corporations, which  stock is taxable under the Massachusetts law. This,has resulted in  the taxation of several million dollars worth of personal , property  which had not been declared by the  owner and thus escaped taxation.  "This information I secure direct  from the transfer books of the corporation, and includes the more  important corporations in the  country,  "Would the board of assessors in  your city be in a position to avail  themselves of this information, and  pay for the same on a basis, which  in Massachusetts has been consider  ed most fair and reasonable, considering the results obtainwd.by the  assessors, namely $1 per name for  each name used?  "I would furnish you with all  of the information which I secure  relating to the holders who are  residents of your city,, and would  leave you to determine the names  upon which you could levy a personal property tax and it would be  these names that I should ask you  to pa)' for.  ''I enclose a memorandum of  some of the stockholders' lists which  I have. I am getting new lists continuously.  ���������'Hoping that you will give the  subject matter the attention which  I feel it warrants, I am yours very  truly, E. Wjsntwokth Pkkscott ���������"  The answer he got must hiive  been an eye opener to him. Here  il>:  "Mr. E. YVentworth. Prescott;  State House, Boston, Wans.���������Dear  Sir: I have your letter offering to  secure dsspssnihiita of persons! property arid ch.-irge SI per name for  same. In reply will state, that this  city hus ceMa������jfl to act in the capacity  uf a thief. We do nut tax -personal  property; we consider it common,  everyday stealing to take in the  form of taxes any part ef thai, which  a man earns himself. The land  values of Houston produce more  revenue than we need and we don't  have to subject our citizens to the  ordeal of the seventh degree, or put  them in a position where they will  have to perjure themselves and send  their souls to Hell. If you will  read 'Progress and Poverty,' by  Henry George, you will get aline on  what I am talking about. Yours  very truly,'Board of Assessors,  J. J. Pastoriza."  Had Mr. Prescott kept up with  the'times, as he apparently has not,  by readsng papers that publish happenings rather than gossip,he would  have been sufficiently well informed  to have avoided this rebuff. However, the advice Mr. Pastoriza gave  him in the last sentence is valuable  enough to repay him for whatever  shock he experienced from what  preceded. He should lose no time  in profiting by  World.  ALARM CLOCKS  For these dark mornings  produce a tendency to  sleep in. Best thing you  can get to counteract this  . tendency is a good reliable alarm cloqk. Our  stock is large, our prices  are low, and every clock  is Guaranteed.  A, D.

Frachc Brothers, Limited, wholesale and_ retail florists,  have incorporated under the Companies act of British Columbia, and an issue of $20,000' shares is now offered the public. These shares are offered at par until the 30th June.  After that date they will bo advanced to $1.25 per share.  This company offers investors an oppor tuuity to invest  their money whereit will bring in returns and at the same  time be perfectly safe. For several years the net profits of  ihe business have averaged from 10 per cent to 15 per cent.  The directors confidently expect that, with new labor-  saving machinery, additional and enlarged greenhouses, and  the fine market right at its doors, this can be largely increased.  The business of the company consists of nearly eleven  acres of the choicest land; five greenhouses, which contain  about 10,000 square feet of glass; dwelling house, outhouses,  Notice���������Easter Monday, April  the 13th, being a public holiday,  the post office will be closed all d:iy,  with the excep-ion of one hour  from 3 till 4- p.m., when the general  delivery wicket will he open for the  delivery of tetters.

The interior of British Columbia offers a splendid market  for hothouse lettuce, tomatoes, cut flowers, shrubs, etc., which  are at present largely supplied by Washington and .Eastern  firms owing the the inability of" local firms to grow sufficient to supply the ever increasing demand.  With the $20,000 now offered for subscription it is  proposed to build two large addi tional greenhouses, which  f will contain approximately 20,000 square feet of glass, about  200 running feet of hotbeds and sash, with all the latest labor  saving ���������machinery that, will''be cpn-ducive to the economical  running and maintaining of the plant.  It' is also proposed to open branch greenhouses in  Nelson, where the company already has a large and growing  business.  R Frache, A. O. Frach.e, G. H. Frache and B. Frache,  the directors of the company, and who are carrying on the  business as heretofore, have during the fifteen years they  have been in the greenhouse business worked up an enviable  business reputation and an ��������� extensive market for their  products, extending all over British Columbia and a great  .part of Washington and Alberta, which is conclusive proof  of their administrative ability and business integrity.  Preparation of Horns Made Lime Sulphur  Into a large tank or iron pan which holds about sixty gallons put in a  bag of flowers or flour of sulphur. 'This weighs about 110 lbs. Add about 40  to 50 gallons of water, hard or soft,and bring to a boil. Then add 55 lbs of  stone lime . neiirly free from niajriie-sirim aud other impurities, one half by  weight of sulphur, and continue to boil briskly for one hour. Stir constantly  ���������a hoe is convenient for the purpose���������keeping the sediment in suspension  and aiding all the sulphur to go into solution. When boiling is completed  pour oif the clear solution into a barrel. This solution is the stouk solution  which may be diluted at will.  For the winter wash dilute one part with about six parts of water,  or if a hydrometer is used dilute until the specific gravity or reading thereon  1.032 or 1.030. For the summer washes dilute one part with from 20 to 25  parts of water, until the hydrometer reading is from 1.009 to 1.003.

The Lady's Man  Young Jinkson loves the tribes  of girls, and after them keeps  running; and all the Beryls, Maes  and Pearls think he is too cunning.  He warbles love* songs by their  bowers, and he's a peach, they reason; he hands them costly wreaths  of flowers, and oysters, in their season.- The maidens say, "He's  sweet, ods fish," and he, cheered by  their kidding, anticipates their  slightest wish, and hastes to do  their bidding. Bright smiles are always on his face when he's among  the ladies, but when he's at the old  home place he looks as sour as  hades. His sister's an enchanting  maid���������few smiles he ever gave her;  and when he's around she is afraid  to ask the smallest favor. And with  this girl he's aye at war���������he never  loved or kissed her; he' saves his  sweet expressians for some other  fellow's sister. His .mother's old  and worn and sad. and if ������������������she murmurs "Charlie, I wish you'd help  me here, my lad," he looks up,  cross and snarly. "Let sister help  you," he replies, her sad voice little  heeding; "these interruptions I despise���������you see I'm busy reading."  Some day he'll wed a dimpled dear,  when he has saved the boodle, and  when they're married half a year  she'd swap him for a poodle.���������Walt  Mason, poet philosopher.
