of an Old Bachelor.
Tt.e Ladies' Aid of the R. C.
church held their annual ball in
the Biden opera house last Monday v night. About seventy-five
couples were in attendance. The
' hall wns beautifully decorated for the
occasion, and the music furnished
' by Miss M. Eyre and : Mr. LeBarr
was all that could be desired. Supper was served in the lower room of
the building by the ladies of the
church in a manner reflecting great
credit on their ability to do so in
first-class style. The dance was one
of the most successful they have
ever given in the city, which was
mainly due to the untiring energy
of the committee in charge* The
gowns worn by the ladies were
espcially attractive.

An elderly bachelor living in the
West end of thc city was busily engaged iu looking for a baby carriage

know. Later—He won't need the
carriage. "Zip" has shuffled off
this mortal coil and gone to dog

also address the Sabbath school in
the afternoon, and will lecture in
the church on Monday evening at 8
o'clock, appearing in the costume of
an Indian chief of our nothern tribes.
The public is cordially invited to attend any or all the above gatherings.
A successful meeting of the Kootenay Presbytery was held in Nelson
this week. Revs. J. R. Robertson
and W. R. Ross attended from this
city. The work of the past year was
reviewed, and the work for the coming year was planned.

C. A. Stoess, C.E., left yesterday
via the C. P. R. for Vancouver,,
where he will reside for an indefinite
time.
The third annual ball given under
the auspieces of Grand Forks Lodge
No. 30, K. of P., at the opera house
last Friday night, parsed off very
successfully. About fifty couples
were in attendance. An orchestra
of three pieces furnished excellent
music. The different committees
spared no pains in making the
event thoroughly enjoyable to everyone present. There was quite a
lengthy program of dances, and for
those who did not care to trip the
light fantastic, card tables were provided . on the stage. At midnight
the Ruthbone Sisters Bcrved a sumptuous luncheon in the vacant rooms
downstaira. Tho dresses worn by
the ladies were very artistic nnd lie-
coming. It was one of the most
successful dances ever given by the
lodge, which speaks well for the
members who had it in charge.
Numerous complaints have reached
The Sun during the past few days
nncnt the great number of dogs that
follow the children to school—like
Mary's little lamb. It is said that
some days it is impossible to sec
thc snow on the school grounds for
dogs—and there's never a dog gone
until the children take them home.
The canines are not content to play
with the scholars, but they run
after and frighten teams and this
is what the people are kicking about
—that have, occasion to pass _up or
down Winnipeg avenue. Two or
three runaways have narrowly heen
averted during the pas^few days by
the varied and unmusical barks from
these animals whose sole ambition in
life is tomakc a noise and wag their
tales artistically. The city jiound-
mastcr authorizes this great family
journal to state that if the children
persist hi fringing their pcta to school
he will swoop down on the aforesaid
pets some of these fine days with a
double-barrel shotgun—and he will
lie   accompanied    by  the  official
. ThoBe of our theatre-goers who
recently laughed heavily over "What
Happened to Jones" are now to be
given an opportunity of hearing
"Why Smith Left Home," the tale
which, as related hy the same author, Mr. Broadhurst, is equally
humorous. The company returning
with the "Smith" comedy is the
same high grade organization managed by Mr. C. P. Walker which
gave us the "Jones" production.
Critics of both London and New-
York hive unhesitatingly declared
that of all the American farces,' 'Why
Smith Left Home" is the best.
That the public seem to agree in
this verdict is evidenced hy the fact
that on both sides of the water, in
the chief theatres, it enjoys an almost unprecedented run. The company comes to us on Tuesday,
March 1st.
W. K. Q, Manly last week purchased, at Curlew, Wash., three
horses, which will he used in his
delivery service. Hereafter he will
run one single and one double rig.
The business in his grocery department has increased bo much si nee he

step has been made necessary. Anticipations have been more than
■realized in his new venture.
The case of Shet Wong vs. Win.
Carter, which was up in the county
court here at the last session, ami
in which judgment was reserved,

in favor of Shet Wong for the full
amount nnd costs. J. 1). Spence appeared for plaintiff, and I). Whiteside for defendant.

J. C. Hamilton, who has been
laid up for over twenty weeks with
tynhoid fever, is again able Ut I e

some five months ago from Walla

the C. P. R. Granby station, and a

A Splendid Record
The  Year's   Work at the Waterloo,
Camp McKinney
Martin Burrell, Conservative can
didato for Yale-Cariboo, returned
yesterday from a trip to Phoenix
and Greenwood, where he did a little preliminary campaign work.
Last Friday P. T. McCallum, local
agent lor the Canadian Casualty and
Boiler Insurance company of To-
rsnto, received a cheque in full for
the entire amount of the claim of
Prank Nibbling, who was injured at
the smelter on December INth 'last
aud laid up (or about six weeks.
P. T. says he believes in representing a company that pays all claims
promptly.
Ii. Lequime, of the Kettle River
Lumber company, returned Inst
Monday from Kelowna, B.C., where
he had been on a business trip. He
reports everything booming in that
district. Land values have gone
away up; in fact, large tracts are
selling as high as 8200 an acre. Mr.
Lequime recently bonded his large
ranch there to an Knglish capitalist.
The bond expires on the loth of
March.    '
Henry Nicholson, of Camp Mc- ]
Kinney, in'the February issue of the
B. C. Mining Record, gives particulars of work done in that camp.
He says, in part:      i
The Waterloo mine, owned by the
Waterloo Consolidated Mining and
Milling company, of Spokane, Dennis Clark, managing director, and
John Harvey, superintendent, has
made a splendid record during the
past year. In the earlier part of
the year the mine was in the assessment state, but since July, when the
five stamp mill commenced running,
the bullion has been rolling off thc
plates at thc rate of $5000 a month,
arid it is already rumored that a
dividend is in sight. When it is
considered that so much has been
accomplished in such a short time
and with such limited milling
power, it speaks volumes for the
value of the property and the ability
of the management.
I am indebted to the courtesy of
the supe.intendent Tor the following
particulars of work done, etc. Thc
first development commenced in
January, with the deepening of the
150 foot working shaft to 220 feet,
when from the bottom a drift (117
feet) was run and an upraise made
to connect with the 150-foot level,
while on the 150-foot level a crosscut (70 feet) was run west of the
shaft, where a winze in the ore was
sunk to connect with the upraise
from the 250-foot level, the vein
averaging three feet and the ore
carrying high values. Prom the
bottom of this winze stuping has
been carried on for 100 feet in length
and 50 feel in bight, for supplying
tho mill, the richer crude ore being
shipped. On the east of thc shaft
at the i.lll foot level a dirift about
75 feet was run on the vein, rich ore
being obtained. What is known as
the free gold stopc on the 100-foot
level has been opened up some 40
• eel in leugtli,i the vein averaging
three feel. This slope extends up
to the 00-loot level, where the vein
widens considerably.
The recent addition of five stamps
and another concentrating table will
necessitate extra men in thc slopes
of the shaft, where there is a large
body of ore, the coin) any's ground
extending in that direction 1000
feet. At the same time development
work is being carried on east of tho
shaft, in the direction of the Fonte-
noy claim, both on the 150-foot and
250-foot levels.
The general value of thc ore milled
gives about $20 ou thc plates, the
concentrates averaging $100 to the
ton and the crude sorted ore which,
has been aliippeil giving a return of
*20 to thc ton.
*   *   *
Chris Tolrbiason, who is working
on the Senatoi claim, in Summit
camp, which was recently bonded by
the Granby Smelter company, was a
isitor in the city this week. He
says the ore body of the Senator is
improving all the time. They are
shipping at the rate of a carload a
day, sending the ore out by teams
to the Ruthniullen spur. There arc
fourteen   men  employed   on    the
Senator at present.
Jay P, Graves, general manager
of the Granby Consolidated, arrived

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY   9  1901
Tiik weather is so cold in eastern
Canada that a few days ago in Toronto an engine attached to a passenger train became frozen up, and had
to be thawed out before it could
proceed. It is quite evident that
the eastern people are entitled to a
legitimate kick against their weather
clerk.       *
A Letter received in Ottawa a

GREENWOOD GLEANINGS
From the limes.
Greenwoodis to have an abundant
ifupply of pure water before the end
of 1904 if the present plans can be
carried out. The council is arranging for another supply. A dam will
be built and about 7000 feet of pipe
run to connect with the present system. The water from thc new sou:
will he absolutely pure, and there is
little danger of contamination in the
future. In case of fire the Twin
creek supply-will also be available.
With the purer supply of water it is
expected that the revenue from the
waterworks, which is already considerable, will be largely increased.

Alleged Canadian Jests.
A WRITER in the "Pall Mall Gazette," who claims (o have hai]
much to do with colonial new-s-
.   papers and colonial letters, has
ollected therefrom a number of what
:$ chooses to call "Sea-borne -Tests,''
Canada seems to supply him with the
:iost    inaterlal. but , either    he    has
volved most of his Canadian jokes out
C his own Inner consciousness or else
hey have been curiously refracted In
jasslng through the prism of an Bng-
i*h mind.   In any ,event some of them
--nutd never be looked upon as jokes In
:ftls country.  For example: "Why doo»
.Mcky Ducky want to be M. P.?" askt
the jester of a far Western paper. "Because-he now has one P too many," Is
ihe answer, which, aa the "Pall Mall"
writer says, It Is tolerably certain made
lozens  of big men  In  miners*  boots
laugh   till  they bent like  Jack-knives
when that Inscrutable conundrum was
first let loose In British Columbia. Here
a-e dome better attempts—the alleged
-wylngs of a ten-year-old boy, who Is
credited to Toronto:
I.—Teacher's question: "What li
miss?" Boy'B answer; "Wfiat you
reep off."
II.—Question: "Who was the flrst
man?" Answer: "WoHe!" Reply:
'Great Sakes! It was Adam!" Repartee: "Oh, well, If you count In foreigners!" V
III.—Question: "Wh'-t were the Greek
marriage customs?" Answer: Ev'ry
man had one wife, wMch they called
monotony!"
Another story told by the "Pall Mall"
writer Is that of a little doctor's from
a reserve In the North-West Territories. The doctor In question was a
moonlas * (Angllce, "green") g- aduate
from the East, nnd hnd Just been appointed to look after the health of the
Indians dwelling there or thereabouts.
Dn his first visit to the reserve he found
that everybody was suffering from a
mysterious 'disease, the symptoms of
which were very obseure. All the pa
tients got a box of bread pills or a
fcottle of colored water—it Is best to Ik
so the safe side, and faith has cured
.Many a mysterious epidemic among
Indians—with the exception of the last
jomer. "This Indian,"- said he. laying
Bis hand on his stomach, which was a
?hlef*s, "when he drink cold water feel
^old pain here." Then the agent remembered that the doctor's predecessor
had prescribed a bottle of good port tn
the hard case of an old squaw suffering
from "the grippe," complicated with
no-flour-for-slx-months, We confess
we fail to see much of a joke lurking In
this story.
Too Had.

* "She is a. brilliant woman.
l»n't she?"
"She haB been. I cn't say that she

precocity. It was not so much In her
literary proficiency that she display---]
her qualities, as in that wide sense of
her ultimate mission, In the broad --on*
ccptions she so early entertained of thi
trying needs of our social system.
When only eleven, she had written a
ttrlklng paper on sex relationships. At
fftlrteen, her monograph of "The True
Prerogatives of Woman" had attracted
wide attention -Vt fifteen, her essay
on "The Silent Vote" marked an epoch,
and when, at uventy-two, Jhe delivered
her "Motherhood of Man/ it became
o"ident that a new force hud risen.
What a pity that now, after all, her life

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
juBt as ,well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of die Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?    '
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs apd Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all train's 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 ears,
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 thc
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means ol
crossing the continent can be found
than i8 provided by these excursions.

An eiTor of a new clerk In the mailing department of aa English publishing house was responsible' the other
day for the maNir.g of a prospectus to
a world-famous statesman, who had
been dead for some years. The letter
waa returned a few days later, with the

one. day. the President remarked:
"There was once an Jn-wiman wno had
signed the Father Mathew temperance

glass of lemonade to que.ich hla thirst,
he leaned ov-jr and wai->pered to the
barkeeper: 'And couldn't you put a little brandy in It unbeknownst to me-

If you can."

pugilist, was a tea.LU.re in a revival of
"Uncle Tom's Cabin," "Hill" Nye was
to have lectured ai the Baldwin Theater, but was greeted by so small an
audience that he excused himself and
went over to hear JucKtun talking of
the pearly gated to Little Eva. After
the performance Stockwell met Nye in
the lobby of the theater, and he exclaimed* "Hello, Nye! What did you

humorist, dryly, "anatomically he was
great, but Uncle Tomically he is the
worst I ever saw."

the animal plunged toward the ilower-

When the late President of the United
States and party went west not many
months before he was shot, Mrs. McKinley, it will be remembered, went
too. While talking one day wUh Mr.
Scott, the man who built the battleship "Oregon," relates a writer in the
Boston "Journal," Mrs. McKinley said:
"Oh, do you,play crlbbage, Mr. Scott?"
"Yes," was the great shipbuilder's answer. "Well,, so do I," said Mrs. McKinley. "1 wish you would play a gams
with me." "I should be delighleu to
do so," was the reply. Later, as Pr-j-ji-
dent McKinley and Mr. Scott were
looking over the latter's big plant. Mrs.
McKinley not being present) the President said: "Oh, by the way, Mr. Scott,
didn't I hear you and Mrs. McKinley
arranging to play crlbb ige some time?"
"Yea," eald Mr. Bcotl, "we are going to
play." "Well, what kind of a plty«ar

pretty fair, 1 gue.-i.-j; I play a pretty
good game." "Well, so du 1," salu Mr.
McKinley. "But, do you know, It may
aeem strange, but It is a Tact, that I
oave never been able to play well e ough
to beat Mrs. McKinley." As he .-.-id
this he looked at Mr. Seott with a significant emlle. Their eyes met. It was
enough. Mr. Scott understood, and H
was saft- to say that he did not beii

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 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.

DAILY NEWS
i AN D THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
.■Eor 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 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 lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as thc dollar magazine has
taken hold of thc 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 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 homo and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see

Max O'Re!! on "Discontent."
MAX O'REIiL, never neglects to
say a. good word for the ladlei
whenever opportunity serves.
At the same time, he does not
shut. his eyes to their fault!,
but Is only "a, little blind," as wltnea,
what he says about "The Discontented
Woman": / .
"We all know trhst woman, no^ unkind, not exactly sour, but sad, depressed and depressing, who Is welt
off and might enjoy life, but who look*
as If there was not one pleasure left in
the world to make It worth living In.
"She may feel ever so well, she will
rever confess It. She hates to be told
that she looks well. She thinks you are
wanting in sympathy. She loves to be
pitied, and has no objection to being
called 'Poor Mrs. A.!* Yet she ts very
susceptible, and resents any attentions
that are paid to other people In her
presence. She was Jealous of her sisters when a girl; now she is jealous of
her children, jealous of the laaies who
call. Jealous of her husband's secretary
or typewriter. She hns no reason for
being Jealous, she knows it, but It Is a
habit, and she likes to keep her hand at
It.
"She Is fond of calling on sick people,
and, as she has had every mortal disease or Indisposition you care to name,
she gives the people whom she visits
her own experience of their disease,
and they have to listen to all the minute details of the sufferings she had lo
go through. She hopes that you wltt
get better.
"Meanwhile she tells you of all the
people she knows who have died of the
disease with which you are afflicted,
but reassures you by stating that some
people have been known to recover.
"She is the town-crler of bad news.
If there Is a sad event of which she
hears early, she Immediately orders a
carriage and goes on a round of visits
to announce It. When her friends see
her arrive unexpectedly they look at
eactr other and say, 'We shall hear
some bad news.'
"She Is a prophet of Ill-omen. She
loves the sad, and revels In It. It is her
life. She has not a cheerful feature
about her. She Is a hair in your soup,
a crumb in your bed. an unmitigated
bore.
"She never enjoys what she has, but
Sends her life r rgrett ns y hat lie doei
not or cannot have, if she lose a £4
bill and her husband r-ays to her, 'Nev-
»r mind; here's another,' she goes on
ilghlng and whining, for she thinks
that if she had not lost that £4 she
would now have £8.
"There Is no cheering her up. and
when a real misfortune befnlls her you
feel inclined to exclaim: 'Good, serves
her right, now she has something
worth crying over.' But this seldom
happens, If ever, for It Is a remarkable
fact that this kind of woman is the
very one who never has real troubles -
except those of her own manufacture."

"By George," s id a man who wa*
riding to the city In an early train, "I
fie test people who are so positive about
everything."
"It la a disagreeable habit," the pas*
■Verger who sat next to him admitted,
'and It always pleases me to see such
peop'e confronted with proofs that they
ire in the wrong."
"Yes, It dues me, too. My wife's
cousin has been visiting us for several
days,' and he's one of those know-lt-all
felloi *'. You can't tell him anything.
Yesteiday morning he was reading, and
I gave him a hint on how to pronounce a French word that he used.
But do you suppose he was witling to
admit that I knew more about It than
ha did?"
"I suppose not"
"No; he sat thert, right at my own
table, and argued with me for twenty
minutes trying to show that I didn't
know what I was talking about. Such
people mnke me weaiy."
"Why didn't you fet a French dictionary and prove to him that he waa
wrong?"
"Oh, 1 looked it 19 yesterday and
found that I -was mistaken myself; but
what makes me mad is the fain it
he was bo positive about It."
