Narrow Escape of C. P. R. Bridge at This Point From De-
struction by Fire---Record of City Life During
Past Three Days.
Phil Herr, converter boss at the
Granby smelter, has bear story to
relate to his friends today. Yesterday afternoon his sons, while roaming over the hills back of the big
reduction wtirks, suddenly espied
a big bear headed in the direction of
the eity. The boys speedily carried
the news of their discovery to their
father, who immediately shouldered
his srusty rifle and started in pursuit of the big gnnie. He had no
difficulty in find ng bruin, as that
animal was still slowly wending his
way cityward. It didn't take Phil
long to bag his game. But in the
excitement of the chase the hunter
lost a $(S5 watch. Mr. Herr now
figures up the results of his afternoon's sport as follows: Loss, one
watch, valued at $05; gain, one bear
skin and 45c. P. S.—It has since
been ascertained that thc animal
kiiletl was one of Win. Graham's
tame bears, which escaped from its
keeper last fall when about to be
Shipped to Seattle. It is presumed
that the animal's rations in the hills
had run short, and that he was returning to tbe brewery for a square
meal.
Five C. P. K. coke ears were wrecked
yesterday evening in the Granby

One tiny last week, while returning light from Grand Forks to Cascade, Engineer McKenzie and Fireman Dewar observed a deer trying
to get through thc Page wire fence
that encloses the track between these
two points. The deer's frantic efforts to get through thc fence proved
fruitless, and the engine crew managed to capture the animal and tie
it down with the bell cord, which
came in handy for the purpose. They
put the deer on hoard antl carried it
into Cascade, where it was untied

Teamsters in the Boundnry country are having all kinds of trouble
these balmy spring days. Except
for a few miles each side of Phoenix
wheels must be used, while in and
around that camp using anything
but runners is an impossibility, and

means changing from one to the
other on a long trip, and this is
where the trouble and annoyance
comes in.

The concert given by the Mctodist
choir on Wednesday evening in the
Biden opera house was a splendid
success. The hall was filled with an
appreciative audience, who listened
to a program that has never before
been equalled by local talent in the
city. The performance was com
inclined at 8:30 sharp, and under the
able leadership of Dr. E. R. Follick
was carried through in a most efficient manner without a hitch.
The chorus of forty voiees rendered
some beautiful selections.
The opening number, "The Heavens Are Telling," rendered by Mrs.
Fowler, Messrs. Hinton and Shaw
and the chorus, was exceptionally
good and was greatly enjoyed. The
double quartette and obligate, "Hark,
Hark, My Soul," by Mesdames
Fowler, Shaw, Follick, Clements and
Bower, and Messrs. Ogle, Rutherford, Farmer und Follick, was well
rendered, the voiees being well harmonized. Mr. H. Hinton's solo, a
selection from "The Messiah," was
good and received much applause.
The solo by Mrs. Thos. Parker, "Rejoice Greatly," was beautifully rendered and brought forth well minted
applause.
The piano solo, which was thc first
number on the second part of the
program, by Miss Margaret Eyre,
took the audience completely by
storm, and the applause lasted for
several minutes after the conclusion
of the piece. Her musical talents,
always of the highest order, seemed
to excel on this occasion. Mr. Hinton's solo, "My Queen," was well
received and he had to respond to
an encore. The solo, -'My Little
Darling," by Mrs. Parker, was one
of the best selections of evening, antl
hehl the audience spell-boufidi She
was obliged to respond to an encore,
and was given an ovation on hersec-
oiid appearance. A selected solo by
Miss Ellie Boss was splendidly rcn-
tltri'tl. It is seldom the privilege of
a Grand Forks audience to listen to
so sweet and clear a voice us that
possessctl by Miss Boss. Every
Word could be distinctly heard in
any part of "he hall. She wus recalled, and her rendition of the second selection was equally "s heartily
applauded as th6 preceding number
bail been. The solo, "Then You'll
Remember Mo," isun old favorite,
anil was sung by Dr. E. B. Follick
in his usual splendid style, ami
brought forth round after round of
applause antl time and again an encore was demanded, but was not responded to, much to the disappointment of the audience. The closing
number, "Behold the Sun in Gold
Descending," by tho chorus, brought
to a close an evening's musical entertainment which will not soon be
forgotten  by  the  people of Grand
Forks, who will look forward to another performance of the same high
order in the f"'ure.  -
Miss Margaret Eyre and Mrs. E.
Miller deserve great praise for the
efficient manner in which they performed the duties of accompanists
during the evening.

Five thousand emigrants are reported to have arrived at one Canadian port within a week. Fully as
many more are flocking across the
border from the western states. The
'rate of expansion is rapidly increasing. Three years ago it was thought
that Canada had entered upon a
periotl of rapid growth. Three years
from now we will think the present
rate of progress slow. It is true
llritish Columbia is not yet an active
partaker in the benefits of the increasing confidence in Canada, but it
will soon appear that wc shall be on
of the chief beneficiaries.
As a protection against accident
caused by electric wires, a patent ho
been granted by thc Dominion government for a meahs of protecting
the exposed purls of electric switches,
OUt-OUt, etc. This consists of an insulating block, fire anil electric-proof,
consisting of several parts, each being coinplemcntnlly grooved so as to
conceal and surround all portions of
tl*e electrical device. There ore
openings in some parts of the block,
which permit the actuation of the
appliance, antl there is an arrangement to close these openings when
necessary.
Among the important patents
relating to metallurgy anil mining
granted by the Dominion go.vern-
ment during February were the following: A new method of arresting
arsenic fumes from smelter gases
consists in passing the gases containing the fumes through a filter, in
which is placed some sulphide of
calcium. A method of converting
copper consists in creating an intense
heat in the molten matte by the introduction of nir, then abstracting a
portion i.f this heat by a cooling
medium nt the beginning of the
blow, when the oxidation is rapid,
and supplementing thc heat by it
(lament the end uf the blow, when
oxidation fails.

If Bill Was There
It' Dill was there-
There where the Jap nnd Runs
Are raisin' sueh a funs—
The cable would be aizzing hot
A-tellin' nf tho fights tlioy fouj^lit,
For   .Mill—he's   got  tho whole thing
planned:
How each one ought to take a stand.
And just how either could begin
And, with no trick at ail, could win,
Therewould be trouble in the air
If Bill was there.
If liill was there—
He'd take his submarines
And rapid-fire machines
And tow 'em slowly, after dark,
Right up to where he's put a mark
Near thttt there fcpwn—it's name b'geel
Kims out some fifteen miles to sea—
And then you  bet   there'll  snmetliin'
drop,
He'd li'.jht below em aud on top.
And  some  one  sure   would  get a
scare,
If Mill was there.
If Hill was t' c-e—
He's stuck a dozen pins
To mark the outs and ins
Of how he'd march a million men
Across (lie land anil back again
And put the foemen in the ditch.
Whose   men?   What  side?   He don't
care which I
He says sometimes he fairly aches
To see how both sides make mistakes,
There would he tightin' everywhere
If Bill was there.
Jf Bill was there—
But lies at Mi! er's s;ore--
Him and a dozen more
Of our town's keenest strategists,
With stubby pencils in their fists,
Concoctin' battles and campaigns
That take in all the seas and plains,
If either one—tbe Rubs or Jap—
Is lookin' for a likely chap
To run the war with tact and skill,
They'll send for Hill.

A Good Secret to Know
A man went to a nose and throat
specialist the other day to have Ms
cold cured. As he was paying a not
small sum for the lirst treatment he
said: ''How long does It take you
to cure a cold?"
"Threeweeks," said the specialist.
"And how long would it take me
to get well it' I didn't come to you?"
asked the alarmed patient.
"Twenty-one day," said the specialist.
And it wasn't until the patient
was hall-half home tnat he suddenly stopped and wondered whether he
ought to laugh or get angry. He
finally decided that perhaps the secret he hud learned was worth the
price lie had paid for it. It's a good
S20rot to know.—Saturday Evening

The Rev. Irl R. Hicks 1904 Almanac
The Rev. Irl Ii. Hicks Almnnae
for 1904 is now ready. It will be
mailed to any address for 80 cents.
It is surprising how such an elegant,
costly book can be sent prepaid so
cheaply. No family or person is
prepared to study tbe heavens, or
the storms and weather in 1904,
without tbis wonderful Hicks Almanac and Prof. Hicks' splendid paper,
Word and Works. Both are sent
for only $1 a year. Word and Works
is among the best American magazines. Like thc Hicks Almanac, it
is too well known to need further
commendation. Few men have labored nunc faithfully for the public
good or found a warmer place in tbe
hearts of the people. Send orders to
Word and Works Publishing Co.,

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
Justus well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery Ori the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
tbe Hio Grande system, tbe far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake 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 live
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 sen-ice, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
each in charge of a competent guide
whose business is Ui look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing tbe 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—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 thc
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.

THE   TORONTO
DAILY NEW
AND THE
TWICE=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 have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given tbat paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of Thc
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price,
lint just as tbe dollar magazine has i
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, Tbe News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon thc intrinsic merits of
be paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the 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
thc home and district news, and
thc big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to Tho
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.
