SUNSET  SAUNTERINGS
The social given by the Rathbone
Sisters last Friday evening was a
huge success. There was a large attendance, and everybody enjoyed
themselves. All kinds and conditions of costumes were in evidence,
the Weary Willie variety predominating. The lines imposed by Judge
Sheads and Policemen Hammar and
Munro were numerous. The lady's
prize was carried off by Mrs. Mahan,
and Frank Miller succeeded in landing the genttaman's prize. Songs,
cards and music were indulged in
and a beauntiful repast was partaken of at midnigha, which proved
the fact that the Rathbone Sisters
are equal to all occasions, and arc
second to none when it comes to
entertaining.

a resident of Grand Forks for the
past fonr years, and his numerous
friends will regret his departure.
He has always been of a progress!

in all matters pertaining to the wel
fare of the city. He served one term
aB city solicitor, and later he was engaged as legal adviser to th" Kettle
Valley line for a year and a half.
In both these capacities he discharged his duties with consummate skill, and in a manner that reflected grent credit on his legal abilities. There is no doubt that he will
meet with success in his new field

him later on. t

There are all kinds of reports and
and fairy tales going the rounds of the
press regarding the Southeast Kootenay eoal lands,    i
Thc Vancouver World last Wednesday evening gave publicity and
credence to reports ihat the provincial government is arranging to deal
with the lands of blocks 4593 and
4594 in such a manner as to recognize as prepcicntial the claims of
Aineiicans interested in the coal and
oil properties of these blocks. In its
first news page it declares it is the
government's idtcntion to issue
licenses next month and urges that
the administration is not entitled so
to do in thc public interest, the al
ternativc course being advocated of
putting the lands up to public ten
der, by which means millions would
be realized in place of but 120,000
or $25,000. A prospector recently
oirived from thc Flathead is quoted
as valuing the lands at $50,000,000,
and asserting that $20,000,000 would
be brought to the treasury if the
lands were offered to public competition. The representatives of the
Standard Oil company are also cited
as saying, after examination, that
therein are the finest undeveloped
oil fields in the world. The same
ground is paraphrased and affirmed
editorially. It is understood that
government lr.spractically arranged
already to grant licenses in the favored tract tu provincial representatives of Spokane, Seattle and Philadelphia capitalists almost 'e.Wiu-

I am not in any way connected with

is built we may decide not to ship,
but treat the dump ourselves."

'I0ESDAY, APRIL 12, 1904
The Hon. Mr. Prcfontaine's plans
for a naval militia are being made
public. The undertaking is certainly a great stride forward in Canadian history, and will mark an
epoch in our advancement toward
the maintenance of our own na-
tienal defenses. Three cruisers will
be purchased, and a permanent
force of 400 men will be maintained,
with a reserve of 2000 men. One
vessel will be stationed in the St.
Lawrence, one on the great lakes,
and another in British Columbia
waters. The vessels will be of the
armored cruiser type, with a speed
of seventeen knots, and each will
carry four guns of the latest pattern.
The total cost will be nearly 1250,-
000.
Spokane people are confronted by
an ice trust just as the warm season
is beginning to set in. The combination will probably "cut some ice"
with the prices of that commodity
before the end of the summer.

The Canadian Eye Specialist Can be Consulted at Woodland's Drug Store.
The doctor and Mrs. Jordan have
arrived in Graud Forks from Rossland
and are stopping at the Yale.
Dr. Jordan is establishing branches
of his company with druggists. Some
of the largest optical offices in Canada
have been established by him. A cooperative company, capitalized at
$100,000, has lieen incorporated,
composed of physicians and optic.anB,
for the purpose of placing the science
of optics on a higher plane. This
company is incorporated under the
name of the Great West Optical Manufacturing & Supply Co., Ltd., and
will co-operate with physicians and
druggists. They will manufacture
their spectacles and glasses on the
most scientific basis, and supply the
same direct to the people through the
drug trade, thereby affording an opportunity to the physician of prescribing glasses as he would medicines.
Dr. Jordan has been elected president and managing director of the
company on account of his exiierienee
and training in pysieological optics.
As an aulh irity on eye troubles and
reflex conditions ho stands second to
none in Canada. He an 1 his sptCal-
ist can render the greatest service to
the local physician who may not specialize in eye work by reporting on thc
true condition of his patients' eyes,
and by supplying glasses if necesiary.
This will facilitate his treatment and
the relief of visual or reflex eye troubles, such as headache, eyeache, pain
over the temples, dizziness, chronic
constipation, biliousness, dyspepsia,
pain in the back (sometimes mi t iken
for kidney trouble), as well as gastric
troubles of the stomach. Eye strain
produces nerve exhaustion, as every
physician knows, which in turn will
produce lunctional derangement of the
nervous system, and yisual rellex trouble is the result, though no perceptible
visual defect may exist in many eases.
The most eminent physicians in the
world recognize the value of glasses in
the treatment of these troubles when
such glasses are scientifically compounded to meet the requirements of
the individual case. Muscular un-
balanae is harmonized, nerve leakage

sentence worthy of being handed down
to posterity as a remarkable example

The Emerson Craze.
The men and women, says the "Liter*
try Digest," who are writing anniversary
articles for the magazines on Emerson
a, a philosopher, Emerson u a teacher,
Emerson as • poet, Emerson as a man,
"Emerson as I knew him," etc., display
a marked tendency to eulogy rather than
orlticism. Matthew Arnold once re*
marked that tht whole body ol Emer-
•on's verse wis not worth Longfellow's
little poem, "Tht Bridge." "Ah," says
ont ol tht Emerson eulogists, "this indicated Arnold's limitations, not Emerson's." Even the most trivial words and
action, of the Concord philosopher are
reverently recorded. Julia Ward Howe
recalls fondly, how he once said at dinner; "Mrs. Howe, try our snap cake;"
and Willin.a Dean Howells chronicles the
fact that when Emerson smoked a cigar,
"it was as if one then saw Dante amok*

It is surprising how such an elegant,
costly book can.be sent prepaid so
cheaply. No family or person is
prepared to study the heavens, or

without this wonderful HickB Almanac and Prof. Hicks' splendid paper,
Word and Works. Both are sent
for only tl ayear. Word and Works
is among the best American magazines. Like the Hicks Almanae.it
is too well known to need further
commendation. Few men have labored more faithfully for the public

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just ns well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Riu Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Ijiko City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—^ood work delivered behind
time is not good Bervice; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have

DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY.,
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has heen made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
heen upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures-have been mode which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lend the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club thc Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
tho home and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events-ail over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.

Weighing a Thought
■Professor Wt G. And- .-aou of Yule Unl-
Tersity lately' succeeded in prat-tically.
weighing the result of a thought's action. A student was placed on a
"muscle-bed," poised on a balance
fto that the center of gravity of
his body was exactly over its center.
When he waa set to solving mathematical problems, the increased weight of
blood at his head changed his center ol
gravity and caused an immediate dip oi
the balance to that sidr. Repeating tht
multiplication table of nines caused
greater displacement than repeating the
table of fives, and, in general, tbat displacement grew greater with greater intensity of thought. Carrying the experiment further, the experimenter had the
student imagine him.--.elf going through
leg-gymnastics. As he performed tha
feats mentally, one by one, the blood
flowed to the limbs in auflJdent quantities to tip the balance according to the
movement thought of. By purely mental action the center of gravity of the
body was shifted four inches, or as
much as by raining the doubled arms
above the shoulders. These' experiments
were repeated on a large number of students, with the same results.
To test still further the mustering influence of mind over muscle, the strength
of the right and the left arms of eleven
young men was registered. The average
strength of the right arms was one hundred and eleven pounds; of the left aims,
ninety-seven pounds. The men practised
special exercises with the right hand only
for one week. Tests of both arms were
again made, and, while the average
strength of the right arm had increased
six pounds, that of tiie unexercised left
arm had increased seven pounds. This
showed clearly that the brain action connected with the gymnu-ttics developed
not only the muscles put in action, but
alto other muscles controlled by the
Mme portion of tbe brain. This could
only come about by sending blood unit
nervous force to the proper parts by
purely mental action. Professor Ander
son aays of the results:
"I can prove by my muscle-bed thnt
the important thing in all exercises lithe mental effort put forth, f can lie
down on this muscle-bed and think of a
jig, and though apparently my feet do
not move, and actually the muscles are
not active, the muscle-bed sinks toward
my feet, showing that there hns been u
flow of blood toward the muscles, and
that, If I did dance a jig, the muscles
would be well supplied with blood under
this mental stimulus."—J. Lincoln
•.-rooks, in   Success."
