The Eagles Intend to Make Their 24th of May Ball a Society Event—Happenings in the City During
the Past Four Days.
The most absorbing event in the roses, with n long Latin name. Rut

present week has heen the grand growing, and thc neighbors became

a'ivc with buzzing 'Hoes. The hinting that his prized ruses were
strangers within our gates are: Mrs. only potato plants, Joe smiled in-
Marion 11. liaxter, of Sl'tttttle, ilep- credulously. He attributed thoir
uty supreme commander of the urder ignorance to envy. Tl.c denoue-
for Hritish Columbia and the North- ment, however, came this morning,

phey, lady commander of the Ross- cherished flower beds their cus-
land hive; Mrs. Matthews, lady coin- toinary irrigation. He noticed sonie-

Ada McCardell; Mrs. Desilets, deputy provincial cdiiimandor for the
Kootenay district, Kosslaml. A
private session of the hive was held
in the Odd Eel lows'hall last evening, when two new members were
inflated. The meetingwasfollowedby
a splendid banquet in honor of thc
visitors. Tonight a public meeting
will be held in thc Riden opera
house, at which a program consisting of vocal and instrumental music
will be rendered. Mrs. Baxter will
deliver an address, and an impromptu dunce will close the program.
A   few   weeks   ago Uncle    Joe
Thatcher, ofthe "Club," moved onto one of the most aristocratic residential hills, overlooking the business centre, in the city. When
blossomed in all her glory, Joe concluded thai the only thing needed
to make his new home nn'enithly
paradise was an up-to-date Ilower
garden, nnd during the past two
weeks he hns spent all his leisure
moments in preparing one. He
finished his laborious task a' couple
of dnys ago, anil immediately began
to look around for choice plants anil
llowcrseeds. As luck would have
it, at that vary instant a vendor of
a new variety of Japanese roses, unrivalled for the deliei.ey of coloring
and sweetness of fragrance, ran
across his path. Joe, who is a strong
Japanese sympathizer, purchased
half a dozen of thc plants, for which
he paid 50 cents apiece, throwing in
one of his choicest Marguerites, nnd
then chuckled to himself nt the extraordinary bargain he had secured.
He planted the buds tenderly, and
kept faithful vigil to protect them
from dogs and other destructive
animals. Things ran along in this
way for a day or so. Then his
neighbors began to evince curiosity.
To all their enquiry he proudly related   thc  history  of his Japanese
closer inspection it to be a potato
g. Then poor Joe's heart broke,
arid he collapsed entirely. He has
sihee recovered sufficiently to offer a
$500 reward for the apprehension,
dead or alive, of tiie villain who sold
him the'Japanese rose plants. The
blow is a particularly severe one to
Joe, especially as he has been pos
it-Has professional floriculturist ever
since he carte to Grand Forks. If
Joe's knowledge of potato raising
lind 'Japilnesc roses balance, no perceptible slump in the price of the
former is apprehended this fall.
Elaborate preparations are already-
being made for the grand ball to be
giv'en ia the BidtO opera on the 24th
of May by Grand Forks Aerie No.
237, F. O. E., and it is the intention
of those having the affair in charge
to make it a social event that will
far surpass anything that has ever
been attempted by a fraternal organ
ization in tbis city. A first-class
orchestra' of four pieces has already
been engaged, and other details are
being perfected rapidly. Tickets

Report of analyst of samples of
water from Halcyon Hot Springs,, Arrow Lake, B. C.l
Laboratory of Citv Analyst,

One gallon of this water contained
the following ingredients,  the results
are expressed in parts:
Chlorine     8.14
Sulphuric Acid 363.43
Silica  74.29
Lime  84,67
Magnesia     5.71
Alkalies as Soda 232!03
Lithia 8<>
Sulphuretted Hydrogen.... .12.00
This water is remarkable chiefly for
the large proportion of Silica and Alkaline Salt which it contains. Another notable feature in the composi
tion of the water is the presence of a
very considerable amount of Sulphuretted Hydrogen, and also of the run
substance of Lithia, Of this 'latter
substance thorp is fully six times tit
much as is shown to exist in two different American waters, Banff nml
Buffalo, the results of the analysis-
which arc now before us.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well tike a, delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of ihe Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Hio Grande system, thc far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only trm S'ontincntil line pnss-
ing through Suit Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs und Denver enroute 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 equipment of these trains is thc best, including free reclining chair curs,
standard nnd tourist sleepers, a perfect dining ear service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look nfter the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant und 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 promptr
ly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; 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
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

AND THE
TVVICE-A-WEEK
..FOR   ONLY.,
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world havo
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 originality. This latest move is to plnce
The News at the price of $1,00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-rounded
belief in the future success of The
News could lentl tho publishers to
make such n reduction in price.
Hut just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will -secure a vast and ever-inerciisiiig circulation, based not only on the popular price at which il is sold, but
mainly upon tho intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which ennliles us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at 12.26 a
year in advance, Such n combination presents many uplqlle features
—our semi-weekly giving vim nil
the home nnd district news, nnd
(he big I'J-page daily keepingymi in
touch with events nil over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper lirst, write us and we will
secure n sample copy.
