City's Sanitary Condition
To the IMitur of The Eeeninrj Sun,
It is ot vital interest to every citizen in the community that householders take diligent care to comply
with nil Ihe Kimitu.iv regulations.
This is important al all times, but
tho preselll period of intense heal
makes il most essential in Ihe interest of tho general health of tho public, lu case of earth closots, a liberal   supply   of  dry earth   or   ashes
should he used. Ii i- a further advantage to use a small amount of
chloride of lime.
It should not bo necessary to remind   any one  thai   il is nil offense
against tho sanitary laws to empty
dish water or slops of any kind on
the surface of  the  ground.    These
decompose quickly and cause  very
disagreeable smells.   Such refuse ns
| potato peelings, cabbage leaves, orange nnd   lemon   peelings, etc., can
easily be burned in the stove.   They
should on no account be thrown out
J thc back dour or into the mlcv.    In-
! feclious   diseases call frequently be
traced to decaying vegetable  matter
of this character,   It is to be hoped
that all householders will consider
their own nnd their neighbors'   welfare to the extent  thnt our siinitnry
rules will be complied with willijiglv
nnd to the letter.   C. M. KINGSTON,

FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 190*1
It is doubtful if the average citizen
realizes the importance of a good sale
of the Grand Forks syndicate's holdings in the coal and oil region of
Southeast Kootenay. If tin' fifty-
four claim owners should he fortunate enough to dispose of their
property for a million dollars—nnd
this is' not an extravagant figure,
when it is considered that the title
is unassailable and that the lands
lie close to tbe boundary line ofthe
Crow's Nest Coal company—it would
mean that the greater portion nf that
amount would be put into improvements in this city. Spokane was
built up from capital realized out of
the sale mining properties, and there
is no reason why Spokane's early
history should not lie repealed in
Grand Forks.
Chicago   Capitalists Acquire
an Interest in the Betts C&
Hesperus.
$40,000 Is Available Immediately for Development
and Plant.
The prospects for Franklin eamp
an- exceedingly bright. In this city,
particularly, many believe that it
will become one of the biggest mineral producers uf the province. And
when shipping facilities are afforded
that district this belief will undoubtedly be realized.
1'ovt Arthur still continues to fall
once every twenty-four hours. If the
veracity of the war correspondents
is unassailable, the city is (he lowest place nn earth by this time.
When the V., V. & 10. runs

traveller will hnve more 10's.

would sound all right.
NEWS OF THE MINES
The work uf retinibcring the
Brooklyn shaft was commenced a
few    days   ago  by   Supt.   Collins,
ami three shifts will probably I m-
plovcd in order to get thc work done
as soon us possible. The compressor
at this mine was stalled last week,
so that the pumps can be Used by
air, instead uf steam, while lie timbering is being dune.
Right incn are at work un ihe Reliance group,   in  Summit   camp,
owned   by Coul   and    Lander   and
bonded by the Raihmullen company. Sinking is proceeding, a
depth of nearly fifty feet having been
obtained. Atrial shipment is to he
made shortly, a couple of ems of ore
being now on the dump.
Tbe Greenwood board of trade is
taking steps tn persuade the government to build a wagon mad to Skylark .Camp,   so (bat   the high grade
properties in that camp can ship
tbeir ore.
It was reported today that John
eianeyand 11.11. Bishop,tiyo wealthy
Chicago lumber merchants, who arrived in tho city about a week ago
n company with President Magee
and Malinger Bert Ren, of the Betts
ii Hesperus mine,"had purchased an
interest in the well known Hardy
mountain property. Later in the day
Mr. Clancy confirmed this report to I
aSi'x representative.
Mr. Clancy further stated that as a i
result of the ileal S40,000 would be
available immediately for the pur-
chase of a plant and to carry nunc-'
tivo development work. It is the
intention of the management to
run a tunnel from Fourth of July
creek that will tap the property at a
depth of 500 feet. Thirty or forty
men will be put tu work at once.
The company expects tn commence
shipping ore before long.
President Magee and Manager Rea
expect to be able to purchase the
plant iu this section of the country,
nnd it will be installed with the least
possible delay.

ers' association will be held in

Maxwell Smith, the Dominion fruit

good attendance will be possible, ae

Anecdotal.
Quean Victoria, on her last trip to
«aly, viaited a church at Aasial, where
fihe met a very devout monk, who rs*
cortcd her through a chilly corridor. His
head wus shaven, and she asked him if
he did not feci the draughts, wearing
the tonsure in the way liia order did.
Hia reply waa not in Italian, as she Mr
peeled, hut in perfect English, tinctured
with Celtic brogue: "No, iniulamc, 1
don't sutler at all in that wny. Vou
know, we Irish are a hot-headed race!"
Tho long-sulTcring disposition of the
London Bobby is well known. OnCfl upon a time, however, an old lady buttonholed one of these obliging officera of
the law anil proceeded to put to him a
string of questions compared with
which the Shorter Catechism simply ilid
not, amount to n eireumataneo. Finally,
having exhausted her stock of queries,
she risked: "Why do you wear that
funny sort oT strap under your chin,
constable!" "Thnt, madam," he replied,
gravely, "is to rest our laws when they
tret tired of answering silly questions."
Howard Paul says that on one occasion William J. Florence, at the end of
n not very prosperous engagement in
San Francisco, announced a benefit for
himself and his wife. The late John W.
Mackay happened to he in town at the
time, nml wrote to Florence for one orchestra seat. It was duly sent, aa a
matter of course, and Mrs. Florence remarked to her husband that, considering the friendship existing between the
two men, she thought Mr. Mackay
might have taken a private box at least.
"Wait," said Florence, "he has not paid
yet, and I am in no hurry.1! Thc benefit
took place, Mr. Mackay came from Virginia City to occupy the seat he had
taken, and a day later he sent Florence
a cheque for $1,000.

SHORT STORIES
A woman was charger! the otlior d.iy
in Paris with shoplifting, to which she
indignantly pleaded not guilty, her contention being that it was a case of mistaken Identity. But the judge, who was
a wily old gentleman, addressed her m
follows: "I understand, madam, that
you contend that the detective is altogether wrong in thinking that you arc
the lady who attempted to remove a
variety of articles Under cover of a cape!
And yet the description which te given
of her exactly corresponds witli von',
(Heading): 'A young lady, tall, striking, and remarkably Handsome, lustrtiua
eyes, a perfect figure, small feet and
hands, exquisitely dressed-—'" "Stop,
Aronsieur le Jujje," exclaimed the yolin-,'
lady, with a far-away look in her eyes,
"I plead guilty."   "Ah!" said the judge.
Talleyrand used to rxcu-'o Im marriage with a woman so iacki.'g in tact
and sense on the ground that clever wo
men might compromise I heir ln-1 ends
whereas stupid women only compromised themselves. One Jay 1 enoii, tin
famous .Egyptologist, dined witli the
Talleyrands. M. Talleyrand iv.mie red
his wife to read IDcnon's li-inka. She
dutifully went to the '.lorary, but ou the
way forgot the name, ole ;ould only
remember she wanted tha book oi »
famous traveler whose name ended ir
"on." The librarian ,rave i*&r "Jli imieor.
Crusoe." Mme. Talleyrand read the
book, marveling'that a grelt iii-voier
-wuld write such an intere-ui'ig work.
U dinner she astonished hor g.asN ly
■uddenly exclaiming: "Mon Dieu, u.nu-
•icur, what joy you must nave tell on
•-our island when you found Friday:"
The historian Freeman had alwayi
iieen a very regular attendant at church
services, and knew almost all thePsalma
by heart. Sometimes, according to Vvo?
lessor William Clark, he gave evideni'3
nf this knowledge, in a manner savoring
■lightly of irrevL'i'enee. Writing of De.ni
Alford in tbe "Saturday Review," -o
.vhich he was a frequent contributor, re
made a reference to the copiousness * f
'.he dean's contributions to tbe periodical literature of the day. Dean Afford-
lie said, Beemod incapable of abstain!"-;
-■ven for a single month, so tbat, he snid.
;f ever a month passed by without ''is
ippearing in the "Contemporary Review" or the "Sunday Magazine" or
*ome similar publication, we can imagine hia taking up the language of the
Psalmist, and saying: '1 kept silence,
vea, even from 'Good Words/ out It tVd*
■■■iin and grief unto iue."
