TOWN TOPICS
The News says Detective Gardner,
whose presence here during the early
and exciting history of this community
many remember, is located at Nelson,
Wash., to keep an eye on smugglers.
The Sun has a pretty straight tip that
Qetective Gardner is in this locality
for other and more (to some citizens)
serious purposes.
Frank Fritz and  W.   Putnam left
' yesterday morning for a   prospecting
trip up the North Fork, and  will   be

creditable to themselves. Mr. Robertson desires to thank his numerous
friends for kindnesses tendered him
during his illness.
A correspondent informs The Sun
that Mr Scott, the Cascade barber,
disappeared last Friday night, and
has not been heard of since. He had
been drinking pretty heavily for two
or three days, and was driven Iiooih
in a ris by Thompson's boy, hut he
did not enter the house, and that was
last seen of him. The general concensus of opinion is that he has fallen
into the river, hut no effort has yet
been made to recover his body.
Mayor McCallum has been suffering
from an attack of la grippe during the
past three or four days, but has now
nearly recovered.
Thos Price, who secured the contract for grading the Grand Forks

It is again asserted that the Hot Air

made so often during the past two
months that it is scarcely worthy of
credence. The toy railway people

substantial character than empty rumors before we will believe it.

A donkey stepped into a store one
day and asked for the proprietor, who
walked out of his private office to meet
him, but was surprised to see a donkey in the store. "Why areyou here?"
he asked. "You know that this is no
place lor a donkey." "I am here,''
said tbe donkey, "because I saw your
advertisement ou the fence that surrounds my pasture. I knew that you,
too, mustbe a donkey, or you would
have placed the advertisement iu a
live newspaper, where it would lie
read by people, not donkeys. Being
lonesome today 1 thought I would be
neighborly and call on you."

COLUMBIA. B. C.
Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi irees.
The City of Columbia is situated
near the junction of the North Porks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city 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, forffiing a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
whioh was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora * Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city ootmeotions with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best iu Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent »f fertile agricultural land, part of which "i*jiow being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnltand
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 much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of 'excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
oity of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and aonverter
—the most modern and perfect plnut
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beaiitible environments, the bright prospects for future;
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e 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.

Your Local Paper
is a necessity to you, financially

of GENERAL CIRCULATION,
containing the latest news of the

you. The "up to date man" will

necessaries.
In THE TWICE-A-WEEK

be found the very latest news of
the world, its matter including information on politics, commerce,
agriculture, mining, literature, as
well as the local happenings in
the states of Montana, Oregon, >
Idaho, Washington, and the province of British Columbia. In addition, its columns fcr women, its
popular science articles, its short
and continued stories, its "Answers to Correspondents," and
"Puzzle Problems" combine to
form a home newspaper that at
$1.00 per year can nowhere be
excelled.
Perhaps you have something to Fell—a farm,
a team, farm machinery. You may wish to
buy something. Tho best possible way to communicate with people who wish to buy or sell
Is by inserting a small advertisement In the

Advices received from Republic indicate tbat there will be no change in

Meyers Falls stage line, made a strong'
effort to have the  mail   contract   via
his line cancelled and a new contract
made   with. the   Kettle Valley lines,
because be   is losing  money on the

in both directions, the plau met with
such opposition that the postal department at Washington is said   to   have
reconsidered its intention to give  the

of Meyers Falls are much pleased over
