Modest fortunes will be made by

Wallace mountain, to the Guggenheim interests, represented by tbe

pany, for the sum of approximately
halt a million dollars, representing
about 160 per share for the capitalisation ot tbe company of 10,000
shares originally purchased at a par
value ot one dollar, says tbe Penticton Herald. The cbnclueion ot the
deal was announced by H. B. Mot
ley, managing dlr otor, today.
The Federal interests assume oona
trol ol the property on September 1,
with tbe privilege ol exeroising tbeir
option iater, but there is no doubt
but tbat the de-l will be fully com
pleted. This oompany already has
a number of claims on Wallace
mountain, and tbere is some talk ot
their establishing a concentrator,
although there is as yet oo quantity
of low grade ore on the hill, the
produciog mines being able to ship
the whole of tbeir ore after sorting.
The Sally group bas, thi last few
years, been one of the most profitable mining ventures in tbe provinoe, theo mpany last year paying
dividends in tbe neighborhood oi
500 per oent. Tbe last car of ore
shipped assayed over 600 ounces
of silver to tbe ton.
The olaims were originally staked
snd worked twenty five years ago
by the late Robert Wood and his
associates, but little prog-ess was
made in coping with insufficient
capital and lack of transportation
▲bout seven years ago the company
wu taken over almost entirely by
Penticton Pentioton people wbo had
faith in its future. Even tben
difficulties were many and muoli of

The Grand Forks Mining Synd

trial shipment of a oarload of ore to
the Trail smelter. If results come
up to expectations, further ship*

Ottawa, Sept. 3.—The govr

itis expected that Premier

Ottawa, Sept. 2.—Under an
order issued today by the railway commission, the Canadian Pacific aud Canadian National railways are instructed
to file tariffs, effective not
later the fifteenth of September, reducing rates on grain
and flour to Pacific ports for
export to the same rates, proportioned to distances, ns
grain aud flour would carry if
moving eastward for export.
Western Canada's figbt to obtain
equality in treatment on grain rates
and establish in tbe west an alls
Canadian grain route vith terminals
on tbe Pacific came td a successful
conclusion today wit tbe order of
the railway commission ordering
early revision of grain tariffs bv tbe
railways on tbe basis of equalization.
Tbe cbange will go into effect in
time to catch tbis season's flow ol
grain westward and give it tremendous impetus, declare grain brokers
of VuucoeAer.
Vancouver, it is expected, will
have only one problem this winter
—tbat of preventing congestion in I
its elevators, since the new grain
rates will result in a greater part ol
tbe grain oi western Canada seeking
outlet through tbat port.
The Princeton Star says
that H. C. Smith, general
manage.i of the Allenby Copper company, and the staff
under him, who have had
charge of the changes and
improvements which have
been carried out in the big
mill at Allenby, preparatory
to renewal of opcJation, ex4
press themselves as more
than pleased when the wheels'
were set in motion and actual
production commenced on
Monday morning.
At present 500 tuns of ore per day
is passing through the mill, but tbis
aniot nt will be increased until the
full capacity of the grinding ma
chinery—1000' tooB per day—is
reached. The lower portion of the
mil , or that part of the equipment
which treats the ore after it has been
ground to the required degree of
fineness, has capacity for treating
even a much larger amount of ore
than the grinding machinery.

One notable feature of the tourist seaaen ln tha Canadian Rockies
this summer haa been the demand

cresses a motor read and thus one
commences one's ride at a point
thirty or forty mllea from one's
headquarters. Thus the great cavalcade ef over ena hundred riders who
participated in the recent three-day

During the earthquakes in the western

as being of Spanish origin, and meaning earthquake.

The question is often asked," What is news?''
For short definition, most people would probably answer, "News is anything that you hear
for the first time."  This definition is as good
any other that might be made. An event that
happened this morning would not bo news to
some people, while an occurrence five or six
thousand years old would be news to   other.
Ancient history was not news to the men and
women whose deeds and actions it chronicles,
but it may be news to many readers of the
present generation.
The word "vitamine" was first used by Dr.
Casmir Funk, when he fancied he had prepared a pure or nearly pure form from rice
polishings by extracting them from -elcohol
and purifying the extract, which when applied
even in very small doses was capable of curing polyneuritis in pigeons in a startling manner. The derivation of the word is obvious,
from vita, life, and amine, an ammonia derivative, because it appeared to be a substance
necessary for the maintenance of life and
health and was thought to contain nitrogen in
amine form.

story goes, was accused of stealing a duck,
and the serious point against the client was
that the duck was found in the man's pocket
Cobb put forth seven distinct and separate
defenses, viz.: First, the man had bought and
paid for the duck; second, he found it; thirdly,
it had been given to him; fourthly, it flew into
his garden; fifthly, he was asleep and someone
put it intq his pocket—and so forth. He was
asked on which of these defenses he wished to
rely, but replied that he had put them all before the jnry aud the jury might choose any
one of them. The jury did not choose, but it

An authority on mental hygiene says there
is no foundation for the popular belief that
farmers' wives are more subject to insanity

Dave Evans, freighter for tho McKinley
Mines, is the luckiest man in the Boundary.
Last Wednesday morning while hauling a
2500 pound load up the river, a 50-pound box
of 60 per cent gla.it powder fell off the wagon
near the smelter dam, and both wheels of tbe
wagon passed over it without causing an ex*
plosion. The funiest part of the whole thing
is that Dave does not yet know that he lost
the powder. It is a miracle that he was not
blown to atoms.
A pleasant event occurred in the machine

Nova Scotia Interior as Moose Pasture

j-xeat moose pasture. Ideal, toe
is the moose hunting, because bot)

by hunters and guides, thus savini
many miles of weary hil.in-
through the wilderness. On ths

Smakoofe, Lake Rossignol, Lata
unro, Loon Lake and the Liverpool River expert Indian and white
Siides use the canoes for long dis-
nese and even call the moose tr
the shore with their birch barl
hems': When some distant pent k
te be reached from "Del" Thomas'
ftouth Milford camp, canoes, guides,
hunter-- and duffle are loaded upon
J|> big motor truck for the journey.
South Milford is IS miles irom
Annapolis Royal and is a favorite
outfitting point. So is the Kedge-
makooge Rod and Gun Club, on
famous Lake Kedgemakooge, ir. the
heart of the wilderness 36 miles
from Annapolis Royal. Both oi
these camps have ample accommodations and plenty of canoes and
reliable  guides.
The Nova Scotian moose season
lasts from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15.   Deer

Such guides es Louis Harlow, half-
breed Micmac and Sam Globe, full-

callers and stalkers and rarely disappoint the hunter. The cleverness
with which they simulate the calls
of the cow moose with a simple roi!

is sare to fool the wisest old bull
in the wilderness. When the calling
season is past, the moose no longei
comes to the hunter and the huntei

Comparatively few of the thousand- of miles of railroad
in Canada are electrified, but there is no railway
organization which does not rely to a greater or lesser
extent on electricity as an aid to el icient operation and
service. Electricity plays an important part in all of the
great Railroad Shops through the country. Some trains
and cars are operated by power directly transmitted or
stored In batteries. Bridges are operated, and a thousand
and one electrical devices are in constant use which
beside being labor saving do away vith the human element which might make for inefficiency. Numbered
among these are the automatic Block Signals which one
finds distributed along the line of tl e Canadian Pacific,
and notices particularly in the Rocky Mountain passes
where they are more urgently required.
' To the average layman an automatic signal is just a
signal, and the general public is a ily interested in it
because it gives added protection, or rather eliminates
possible danger from the portion of truck which it governs.
To the railroad official it is more. It acts as watchman
against broken rails, open switches, s fouled track or any
other obstruction. Through a circuit in the rail thia ta
accomplished, and if the circuit be broken, for tbe reason
that another train is occupying the block, or that there ta
an open switch, a broken rail, washout or other obstruction, then the train approaching the signal may not pasa.
And while it awaits a through signal, trains following la
the rear may not approach for tne_ reason that they ue
also Btopped by un automatic signal which will -not
release them until the preceding train has passed from
that section of the track which they desire to enter.
A perfect system. No electrical circuit — no through
signal — no train may pass.
The value of this system in the Rockies ean hardly
be ov-r-estimated. Not only is labor saved, but tht
company is able -n niisure ahsolsite protection.
