they are a strong collecting link that
serves to keep the fanners in close
touch with the department of agriculture. Through them Ihe farmers can
officially make their wants known to
the government, concerning roads and
other matters, and through them the
department conveys beneficial information to the farmers. It would be.JI

I see you advocate the  ush of the  6
John Simpson
powder furnished by the  government i
for the. taking out or stumps.   Such I
powder can only be obtained, however, through the medium of a Farmers' Institute and there is no such organization   at   Grand Forks,   There
are several  farmers'institutes  iu  the  Jf|g   P|glflt
Okanagan district, and through  their
efforts, a carload of. powder arrived
in   this valley about ten  days. ago.
The price of this powder is u^c per
pound at the car.   A similar carload I
could easily   be   obtained   at Grand
Forks, if a  farmers' institute existed I
there.
Apart altogether from the matter
of obtaining powder, it would be advisable to form such an institute at
Graud Forks. The annual membership fee at Armstrong is only fifty
cents. Copies ot all of the publications of the department of agriculture are sent free to each member.
Each received a copy of the admirable
sixth agricultural report, published
recently. The government also secures copies of useful agricultural
works at low prices by buying tbem
wholesaleand trends these copies to the
members of the farmers' institutes free
of cost. Not long ago each member
of the institute here received free of
cost a copy of a valuable and well-
bound book by Frank Sherman Peer,
entitled, "Soiling, Ensilage and
Stable Construction." This book
alone is worth more than the amount
of the membership tee. It is highly
recommended by the professors ot the
agricultural colleges of the United
States |and Canada, including Prof.
J, B. Reynolds of Guelph. The Do-
miniou government sends experts to
British Columbia to lectnre on stoclc-
raisiug.'ddirying, fruit-growing, tbe
care oi poultry and all other branches
of agriculture, but these experts lecture only where there aie farmers'
institutes. Their services cost the
larmers nothing. The farmers' institutes serve two purposes. Their meet-

Blome's Old Stand,
Trail, B. C, April 26—The first pig
j lead, product of the oie wined, srnel-
I ted and refined iu Canada, has been
! produced bv the lead refinery erected
by the Canadian Smelting Works at
Trail, and early in May the plant will
be in full operation, with sufficient
capacity to refine all the present output of the works here. It is the first
ai.d onlv silver-lead refinery in the
Dominion, and its product is the highest grade of manufactured lead, free
of all impurities. The refinery will
encourage the consumption of Canadian lead in Canada, especially that
consumed iu the manufacture of paint.
At present Canadian lead is marketed
abioad and manufactured into white
lead, about 8000 tons of which are an-
nuallp imported from Germany. After
having about 12.000 miles ol transportation and the foreign labor of refining aud converting into white lead
taxed against it, it is brocght back to
Canada and used in the manufacture
of paint. This is made possible by
reas-'ii of tbe fact that there is only 5
pei cent duty on white lead. It is un
drrstood that white lead works will be
established in connection with the refinery, upou the supposition that the
government may be induced to adjust
the tariff.

Gus Anderson Stabs Himself Twenty-six
Times.
MONDAY, APRIL aS, 1902
T. C. Rayuior, of Rose Hall, Out.,
and D. Drummoiid, of Montreal, two
agricultural lecturers sent out by the
Dominion govern i.ent to speak before
thj Farmers Institutes of this province, are at present in Victoria, after
having delivered addresses at many
points on tbe mainland. Tbey are iu
that city to consult with [. R. Anderson, deputy minister of agriculture.
They have spoken, among other
places, at Agassiz, Chilliwack and
Lulu Island, taking up particularly
the cultivation of the soil and the rearing, improvement and feeding of live
stock. Everywhere they found things
in fairly good condition. The season
is rather backward on account of the
coid, wet weather, but tbey state that
when spring really b.eaks tbe prospects are tbat the larmers will have
belter results than last year. Mr, Rayuior said that as far as he knew it was
the intention ol the government to
send out lecturers every year, their
aim being to establish better trade relations between the different provinces. He said (hat it was also intended to serd expprt judges to British Columbia exhibitions this year as
last. Messrs. Rayuior and Drummoud
will confine their tour to Kamloops,
finishing at Euderby and  Armstrong.
Gus. Anderson, a railway laborer,
employed during the winter at the
Ryberg [camp, aged about 30 years,
made a savage attempt to commit suicide about 2 o'clock this morning at
the Grand Central hotel, on Bridge
street, by plunging a two-iuch knife
blade into his left breast, over the
heart, twenty-six times.
His room-mate was awakened by
Anderson crawling over him Irom the
backside of the bed and falling to the
floor in front of it. Anderson having
been known to be ill for some time
previous, his room-mate gave the
alarm and Dr. Kingston was summoned. In the meantime the wounded man had tried to rise, falling once
across the bed but rolling off again.
When the doctor arrived it was found
the man lud rolled himself under tbe
bed to the back wall.
When he was taken out and examined blood was discovered oozing
from bis shirt front, and upon closer
scrutiny the wounds were discovered.
Tbe would-be dead man was alive
at time of our going to press but
bis condition was critical. He appeared to be rational, and one of his exclamations was: Oh, j made a bad
job of It!" He will be removed to
the hospital as soon as his condition
will permit of it. He has three brothers in the States, one at Nevada,
Kansas.
There will be a meeting of the executive of the Grand Forks board of
trade tonight to consider some outside
adveitising propositions.
Mayor Palmer, of Republic, was in
town Saturday 011 his way to his old
hotiiH in Illinois. It is told of him
that he wired bis mother to kill the
prodigal calf, for the fatted sou was
coming home.
The Grand Forks Lacrosse club
play a game at Nelson, B. C, against
the local club on May 15th. The return game will be play id here July 1.
Three more men were enlisted Saturday    alternoon—Harry    Hamilton
and John McAlpine, who came in from
Similkameen, and Hector McFadyen
of Grand Forks.
W. J, Jolley, representing the Freeman's Labor Journal, of .Spokane, was
in town yesterday and today.
TOWN TOPICS
Percy Godenrath, who has been in
the east a month or two in connection
with a scheme to colonize the Covert
ranch, arrived here today, and will go
on to Greenwood tomorrow.
The twenty-two new   recruits here
for the fourth lontinijent of  Mounted
I Rifles  left on  ihe 4 o'clock tram for
j Montreal, from whence they will  pro-
j ceed to Halifax on their, way   to  tne
distant   battlefields   in South Africa.
, They were escorted to the statiou   iu
. Columbia by the local band and many
citizens.

Chas, Cumings, J. B. Henderson aud
Jeff Davis, delegates sent by Grand
Foiks to Victoria a week ago Saturday, returned last night. They made
: themselnes ft It there, not only in railroad matters, but in others pertaining
to the interests of the community,
Mr. Henderson says he bas strong
hopes   of securing  more money for
school purposes. He showed tbs government where, by its own figures,
it was receiving a revenue of $90,000
from Boundary riding, when it had
only appropriated $14,500 for public
works.
The football team is endeavoring to
arrange a game at Kaslo at the big
celebration on Victoria day, May 24,
against the Silvertons, claiming the
championship of the Kootenays and
the Slocan, or all comers.
Mrs. E. Price, of Eholt, has rented
the Lockart building in Columbia at
the foot of the Victoria ave. bridge.
Ernest Miller and Neil McCallum
came as far as Spokane with Grand
Forks' returning dolegates, but stop
ped off there to see the wonders of the
"metropolis of the inland empire."
J. H. Hodson, the Columbia grocer
has a new brightly painted delivery
wagon, on the road. As an illustration
of one 0. P. R. cinch, the freight on
the wagon from Spokane to Nelson
was $4; from Nelson to Grand Forks,
half the distance, $8. Thai's what we
mean by dubbing the road tlr.: "Canadian Pinch." It's a pinch <hat nearly
amounts to strangulation, but we are
hoping for relief when the V., V. & E.
gets in here. Is it any wonder the
Pinch fights the new road?
All beer drinkers appreciate Graham's beer. It will pay every hotel-
keeper in Columbia and Grand Forks
to keep on tap.

in
The City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the oity for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of.,
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, fortfiing a charming combination of picturesqnesness and grandeur
The Columbia &  Western   railway,
which was constructed by  the  Cana- '■■
dion Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver,' Victor* * Eastern .'Railway company, has , located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connection^ with two transcontinental lines.     . !)
The Canadian Pacifle railway company has large interests la the oity,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
v The Climate, taken all the year
ai'ouud,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather !iot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
t   Thrajiiflioar the Kettle River valley
there Is.an extent  of fertile  agrioul-,
tural land, part of whioh is now'- be-
. ing cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a'large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were more prospects a short time since are uow large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind   in  America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the .
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia lyill
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
