properties could be placed in the

name and assay returns. Visiting
mining men could then see at a
glance the nature, richness, etc., of

in the country. A committee, composed W. K. C. Manly, W. B.
Bower and W. L. Wells, was named

FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1904
.  Election matters are warming up
a little rhese days.   Jeff Hammar is
out hus'ling in earnest for mayoralty
honors, and is giving .everybody the
glad hand and as pleasant a smile
as he is capable of commanding.
The friends and supporters of Mayor
Burrell are not idle, but are out with
a petition among the ratepayers getting signatures urging him to stand
for re-election.   To   his friends he
has distinctly stated that he does not
seek the office, but at the same time
has. not refused 'to run again if he
ea/i be satisfied that he is the choice
fit   a majority  of 'the  ratepayers.
There is also some talk of a third
mnn being placed in nomination, in
which event the situation   will become more complicated.    But until
the candidates have been placed in
nomination, and their platforms or
views on civic affairs are know.n, it
would be useless to make any nred.'d
tions as to the   result.    The year
; which has just begun is likely to be
an important one in the history of
Grand   Forks, nml.it therefore behooves the citizens to elect strong
nnd capable men to represent them
in the city government.
c.mld be summoned he passed
away. The din ct cause of his death
is stated to have been heart failure.
Apparently the gnat pain which he
fU.'Ved weakened him to such-an
extent as to affect his heart, thus
causing his death. His wife nnd
three little children were alone with
him in the horse when he died, and
Mr. Kellaher is heart-broken, at her
sudden loss.
Pat Kellaher, as he wns familiarly
culled, was a highly respected citizens of Grand Forks during thc past
three years, and hnd a host of
friends, who will extend to his sorrowing family their heartfelt sympathy in this their sad bereavement.
Mr. Kellaher was a member, of
Grand Forks Lodge No. 30, Knights
of Pythias, and was only 33 years of
age.
The funeral, which was held u'n-
dee the auspices of Grand Forks
Lodge No. 30, Knights of Pythias,
took place this afternoon nt 2 o'clock
from Holy Trinity church, nnd wns
very largely attended by the ciiizens
generally. As a mark of respect to
the memory of the dead, all thc
stores were closed from 1 to 4 o'clock.
NOTICE.
I have this day this day impound
ed one roan heifer calf, from <i to 8
months old/ no brand. If not redeemed, will be sold at 1 o'clock
Sharp on the 9th day of January at
the old school house.

EXTRAORDINARY OFFER
ftfe SUN"S DREAM BOOK
The great irrigation project, which
the Canadian Pacific railway authorities have in band in the Alberta
district of the Canadian northwest,
is the laig -st undertaking of its kind
on this side of the globe. The
scheme embraces an area of S,000,-
000 acres lying east of Calgary. The
soil throughout the area is good, but
ngrieulture has not proved successful, because during the dry yenrs to
1 which that portion of the territories
is subject there is not snffieient
moisture to manure crops or to supply surface water for stock.
IfTo dream that you are endeav
ing to satisfy a champagne nppetite
on a beer income, means that some
of your creditors will soon suffer a
financial loss.
•([To dream that your father's
fnme is sufficiently lustrous to shed
glory on the ci tire family, means
.that the world would have boen jusl
as well off if you had not been born.
*||To dream that your titles fill
two and one-half lines in the newspapers, nfeans tbat you hold a pr mi-
nent office in a fraternal society.
fTo dream that you are at the
bottom of the list in an aldermanic
contest, means that you may some
day become a mayoralty candidate.
In tho hunt for mayoralty candidates, tho importance of good aldermanic timber appears to be entirely
overlooked. For the East ward,
M. S. Martin and N. D. Mcintosh
would make a strong delegation; for
the Centre, N. McLellan and H. C.
Hanington; for thc West, Neil McCallum and J. H. Hodson.
Mr. Hammar, although an avowed
mayoralty candidate, has not yet
nailed his colors to thc masthead
It will be time enough for thc critics
to hammor holes in his platform
after it has been made public.
Another extra gang of workmen
has been put to work in the C.P. R.
yards in this city laying additional
sidetracks. The roundhouse hns
been completed, and shelters the
yard engine every night. The
freight sheds.will not be moved until
some time in the spring.
A. C. Flumerfelt, assistant to
President Miner of the Granby company, arrived in the city Thursday
from Vancouver, where he spent the
nolidays with his family.

A radical change from old  methods and 'prices wns announced by
the Toronto News this week.   The
eyes of the newspvper  world   have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and origin
ality. ' This latest move is to place
The News' at the price of tl.00 a
year by mail.  Only a deep-founded
belief in the future  success of The
News   could lead thepublishers'to
make  such  a   reduction in price.
But just ns the dollar magazine has
tnken 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..
Wc have arrangements concluded
which enables us to c.lub the Toronto
Xews with our own paper at $2.25 n
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-pnge daily keeping you in I
touch with events all 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.

DEATH OF P. H. KELLAHER
The sudden death of P. H. Kellaher, fruit dealer, last Wednesday
night has cast a gloom over the entire community. In the morning
of that day he went to his place of
business as usual. Although he had
not been in tho best health for the
past month or so, nothing serious
was looked for. About noon he
complained of a severe pain in his
right side. Dr. Kingston was called
in and had the patient removed to
his homo, where, in a couple of
hours, he revived and seemed better,
but shortly before110 o'clock in the
evening he suffered another
paroxysm and before medical aid

In our jtfwelry itore we have a special department "fenced off," so to spenk, from the
main thow room. In charge of this is an expert workman—a mechanic, a genius. Tou
should call at thin department quite often, as
your watch should be examined at least
unce a year, or the claws of your diamond
ring may be worn off and you run the risk
of loning the stone. We never charge lor examinations, and all work left in our shop
will bo fixed In a thorough, workmanlike
manner, wl[l be PONKONTMK it is prom*
!sed< and the price will be reasonable, satisfactory. If your watch or diamond ring
does not need repairing, you may have

An Informal fall.
Th»c a certain degree of formality Is
Arable Is suggested by nri amusing
ry from the Chicago "News" of a
i,4hborly call. The far-reaching results
>f the visit can readily be imagined.
"Good eveui'igy' said the elderly wo*
nan, approaching the steps. "I see
.'ou are enjoying the fresh air. It's a
'uxiiry to be able to sit outside again,
isn't itr
"It is pleasant," responded the woman
■\-ho was sitting on the front steps.
"I don't believe you know mo. I am
Mrs. Baxter, your neighbor, two doors
off. No, don't gel up. I'll just sit down
here beside you. Don't say a word now.
[ havo intended to call ever since yon
moved in, but you know how it Is.
There's always something. And when I
*aw you come 'out and sit down I said to
my husband, I'm jusf; going to run over
right now. If she thinks I'm Informal
1 don't mind, because I am informal, I
ilways was.' And he just laughed and
told me to go ahead. He says he thinks
he met your husband some years ago.
How do you like your house? You
needn't tell mc, though, .for I hardly
suppose you've got used to it yet, and it's
■io discouraging getting settled; and then
[ saw Mrs.. Thomas, your next-door
neighbor on' the other side, a day or two
ago, nnd she tells me-that you've been
having awful trouble getting a servant.
You needn't say anything. I know exactly what ft is. I don't Know what the
girls are coming to. They don't seem
to want to work, and they're most of
them worthless when you do get one.
I've had more "
Tha other woman had twloe made a
movement as if) to rfse. but had been
ftrevented by the detaining hand of tha
nformal caller. This time, however, she
got up.
"If you're wanting to Me Mrs. Go*-
sage, ma'am, you'll nave to call again,
for she'e gone to the theayter and won't
be back till late," she said, with cold dignity. "I ain't Mrs. Gossage myself, I'm
tbe cook."
The Resemblance.
Jack—These summer engagements are
like automobiles. Vivian—How so? Jack
*—Well, they jar one so, they are so
easily broken, and a girl is never happy
unless she's in one; and some of them
are decidedly dangerous-—"Judge."
The Most Popular Viceroy.
1-ord Dudley, who is considered the
most popular Viceroy Ireland has ever
had, is a remarkable man in many waye.
lie is one of the richest peers in Great
Britain. He has no need of his salary of
$100,000 a year as Lord Lieutenant of
Ireland. Indeed, the cost of maintaining
his vice-regal office far exceeds that
sum. His collieries in the "Black Country" alone return him over $200,000 a
year, and he also owns deposits of minerals in Staffordshire and Worcestershire, iron works, agricultural estates in
various parts of England, and plantations in Jamaica and other West Indian
Islands. Shortly after Lord Dudley was
made Viceroy he toured Ireland in his
automobile with Lady Dudley, and when
{hey returned -to Dublin lie hnd made
!io»ts of friend** everywhere;, and there
wns hnrdly a phasr of Irish life with
vvhicli lie was unfamiliar. .
The Monk's Knowledge of
Women.
ott N luu-ietttlnff story,ci..i..'d fium the
/J French Alps of Dauphlny re.'at-
J~L Ing the futile efforts of the Princess of Croy, who desired to enter the monastery of the Grande Chartreuse, a habitation from which women
visitors are rigidly excluded.
The etory runs that the Princess
dressed herself In boy's clothes and accompanied her hus-oand to the Institution. The gates were opened to them,
and the Prince sent his card to the
father superior, with a line to the effect that he waa accompanied by' a
friend.
Just as they were about to make the
round of the building the word was received that the father would like to sea
the Prince and "his friend." Going upstairs they, were received by the smiling monk, who cordially invited them
to join him in an appetizing' luncliton.
The1 Princess endeavored to make the
best of the situation, but she was not
put any .the more at her ease by the
fact that the monk kept gnzlr.g sharply
at her.
At last he exclaimed suddenly:
"Catch It, young man!" at the same
time throwing at her a large pear. The
Princess was Btartled, and, thrown
completely off her gUTd. made a motion to grab up her skirt, the absence of
which Bhe overlooked In her confusion.
Then the father stopped smiling and
■aid with great gravity:
"I beg your pardon, madam, bnt ladles are not allowed In the monastery.
I must ask you to wait outside until
the Prince has finished his Inspection."
And outside she hnd to go, the reverend father bowing her from the room
with most elaborate politeness.

WHY GO BAST
Over tho sun-burned, sago brush
and alkali plains, when you may
juHt toa well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on tbe
American continent?
This you enn do by traveling on,
tho Rio Grande system, the fiuv
famed "Scenic Line ofthe World,
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wopd Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver eriroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equip*
mcht of these trains is the best, in-;
eluding free reclining chair cars, j
standard and tourist sleepers, a per- ■
feet dining car service, and 'also
personally conducted excursion cars,!
.each in charge of a competent guide, I
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.

"Is there a man 'here,"- she continued,
folding: her arms and looking over her
audience with superb scorn, "that has
ever got up In the morning, leaving hts
tired, worn-out wife to enjoy her slumbers, gone quietly downstairs, made the

scoured the pots and kettles, cleaned
and fllle'd.the lamps, swept the kltohen,

Onions and Epidemics

"Whilst turning over some old books
In my library last week I stumbled upon the following paragraph in (he
•Rural World' of 1863. As there Is an
epidemic of smallpox In London It has
occurred to me to send this to you, for
some of your medical readers may be
either able to prove or disprove the
statements It contains:. .
" 'Onions and Epidemics. — In v the
spring of 3849 I was In charge of .one
hundred men on shipboard, with the
cholera among the men. We had onions, which a number of* the men ate
.freely. ''Those who did so were soon
attacked, and nearly all died. As soon
as/i made this discovery their use was
forbidden.. After mature deliberation
I came to the conclusion that onions
should never be eaten during the prevalence ot epidemics, for the reason
that they absorb the virus, and communicate the disease, and that the proper use for them Is sliced and placed.
In the sick-room, and replaced with
fresh ones every few hours. ... After maintaining the foregoing opinion
for eighteen years, I have found thta
following well attested: Onions placed
In the room where there Is smallpox
will blister and decompose with great
rapidity; not only so, but will prevent
the spread of the disease.. I thlnk'thal
as a disinfectant they have no eqlial If
properly u-d. If needed, the foregoing
(whh'h I h* \*o greatly abbreviated) can

The Wit's Ho *r of Trial.
Repartee Is like tennis. The ball Is
driven backward an J forward from
one player to the other, and the
one oil whose side It last strikes Is
the loser; It la a terrible thing for an
artist at repartee to find that he has
no answer. The men pretender does
not eare. He will answer something,
•o the point or not; but the artist will
not debase Ms art with « bad ans.vers
he merely sorrows for a good one.
There was a little Irishman who kept
•/liquor shop, and he was noted for always having a reply ready. One day
a man came In, laid a dollar bill on the
bar and called for whiskey. The proprietor set out the bottle and a glass,
and the customer (tiled the glnss right
up to the top. "Is It a towel you'd be
wantln'?" the proprietor asked, Implying thereby that the customer had
poured out a bath, rather than a drink.
"Look here," sail thi customer, pointing to the money, "there's a dollar, you
can take the price of this drink out of
It, and If there Isn't enough, tell me
how much more you vant and I'll pny
It but I don't want any talk from a
kittle M>ck of a bartender."
The proprietor ph;ked up the dollar
and laid down « cent*. As the customer disappeared he walked around
In front of the ***>•* *nt said to a friend
who sat there: 'vas v, I'd have given
me liquor shop to have knowed what
to answer back to th.it man."
