A Large and Appreciative Audience to the Pearls From
the Bow
Maximilian   Dick,    the    world
famous violinist,   and Miss Jessie
Rice, concert  pianist, of Spokane,
as accompanist,  gave a high class
musical entertainment in the Grand
Forks  opera  house, under the au
spices of the Church of England, to
a  large  and appreciative audience
last Thursday evening.   Mr.  Dick,
although   an   American  violinist,
possesses   a   continental    reputation, and rivals the much-vaunted
foreign virtuosos. His style is graceful,   and' his  tone is deHghtfully
sweet and mellow.   Every number
on the program was rendered with
artistic  taste,   and   every    pause
brought him merited compliments.
The opening number, the Adagio,
from Franz Ries' suite in G major,
brought him deserved applause, and
at once won him the hearts of his
audience.   The Romance, Mazurka,
and Serenade, by d'Ambrosio, are
* new in this country, and are rarely
played by American musicians, as
tbey are considered too difficult, but
Mr. Dick proved himself a master
of technique.   It was in his rnditiun
of Franz Ries'   Perpetual Motion,
however, that Mr. Dick scored his
highest  triumph  of  the  evening.
This  number  is aptly named, because it requires a great deal of wrist
motion,    and   a    vast   technical
knowledge.   Mr. Dick, nevertheless,
surprised   tbe  audience  with   his
wonderful control of the bow, making his instrument  speak as if endowed with palpitating life.   Miss
Rice's   piano  solo,   fypillons,   by
Schumann, was well received,  and
her  splendid accompaniment augmented the enjoyment of the entertainment.

"It was one of the nicest audi
ences I hove ever played before,'
said Mr. Dick to The Sun man at
the Yale after the concert. "Everybody were so attentive and appre*
ciative that it was really a pleasure
for me to play. It also encouraged
me to do my best. For the size of
your city, you have a good propor*
tion of music-loving people. I like
the west very much, and hope to
come out here again. But Tain such
a tremendous distance away from
home, that at present I feel completely lost. After filling a few
more engagements on the coast, I
shall return to St. Paul, were I have
a studio. I generally spend the
summer months at my old home in
. St. Peter, putting in the time fishing nnd hunting. Next season I expect to play in concerts with Thomas'
orchestra, the highest honor that
an American musician can attain in
this country."

man, "ob you and I and the governor of Minnesota were raised in the

The Official Board of the Metho

quarterly meeting Wednesday evening, and unanimously passed a resolution approving thc basis proposed
for tqo union of the Presbyterian,
Congregational and Methodist
churches of Canada, and pledging
themselves to do all in their power
to bring thc movement of the said
union to a successful it.suo. A
hearty and unani-nous invitation
was extended by the board to
the present pastor to remain
here f-nother year. Mr. Manuel
thanked the members of the board
fnr their kind invitation, and asked
for jwo weeks in which to consider
the matter.
Have You Heartburn?
It's quite common with
whose digestion is poor. Immediate
relief follows the use of Nerviline.
Stomach is strengthened, digestion is
made perfect, lasting cure results in
every cose. Use Poison's Nerviline
once and you'll never be without it,
because every form of stomach disorder is conquered by a few doses.
One 25c bottle of Nerviline always
convinres. Sold everywhere for the
past fifty years.

It is said that a machine costing
about $6000 is to be added to the
equipment of the Boundary Falls
smeleer.
The prospect of getting ore from the
Idaho mine in the near future, has
made it necessary to build additional
ore bins at the Boundary Falls smelter.
J. 0 MacDonald, formerly mas
ter mechanic of the Granby smelter,
returned to the city yesterday from
Spokane, where be been with the
Union Iron Works for the past three

to remain here permanently, and
will engage in business, the nature
of which he is not at present prepared to divulge. His family will
remain in Spokane for a month or
so longer.
Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Davis and children left this week for an extended

will probably visit Europe before

How to Get Consumption
Ninety per cent of the "lungers"
contract consumption by allowing
power of resistance to fall so low that
a favorable condition for the development of the baccilli is provided. In a
healthy system consumption can't take
root. But where there is weakness
and debility, there you find tuberculosis. For developing strength and
building up the weak, nothing equals
Ferrozone. It makes the blood nutritious and tbe nerves enduring. The
way it converts food into nutriment,
appetite   it   gives is surprising.

Otto Gruno, Pioneer Prospector, Victim of Premature
Blast
Body Discovered Near Face
of Tunnel on His Own
Claim
Otto Gruno, a pioneer prospector
of the Boundary, was killed by a
premature blast at the old Copper
Bullion claim, two and a half miles
south of Danville, last Wednesday.
His body was discovered Wednesday
evening about twelve feet from the
face of the tunnel by Frank Leach,
who visited the claim. The body was
terribly mangled by the blast. ' Coroner Privitt, of Danville' hold an inquest yesterday. A verdict of accidental death wus returned.
Mr. Gruno was about 40 years of
age, unmarried, and bad relatives in
Wisconsin. He owned mining interests suid to be vuluablo, and was the
owner of considerable stock in the
Minnehuhu Mining company. He wus
sober and industrious, and a general
favorite among the residents of the
vulley.
Alex Miller, tbe high-grade mine
promoter of Greenwood, stopped off
for a day in Grand Forks this week
on his return journey from Chicago,
where he has been on a business
trip.
Mr. Miller stated to a Sun reporter that while in Chicago he closed a
deal whereby the owners of the
Helen mine, a high-grade Greenwood property, become the purchasers of the Strathmore mine, in
which a large number of Grand
Forks people are interested. The
Strathmore, which is also a high-
grade property adjoining the Helen,
is to be paid for in shares of the later property. There have been
issued 660,000 shares of the Helen
mine, of which 100,000 shares still
'I-mainin thjj treasury. These will
be used for the future development
of both properties. The Helen
company is also well supplied with
funds for this purpose.
At present work is being carried
on at both the Helen and Strathmore properties. The company intends to ship a car of high-grade
ore from both the Helen and Strathmore during the present month.
This will be followed by two more
cars in March, and thereafter shipments will be continued at regular
intervals.
Mr. Miller stated-that there is a
favorable feeling in theeast regarding
British Columbia mining properties.
The Boundary district especially
stands very high with capitalists.
He predicts an inflow of foreign
capital seeking profitable investment
during the coming summer, bringing with it an actiyo season in mining circles.
Sir James Watson's Opinion
He says that the commonest of all
disorders, and one from which few
escape is Catarrh, Sir James lirinly
believes in liieal treatment, which is
best supplied by CutuiThozonc. No
case of catarrh can oxist where Ca-
turrhozone is used; it is a iniraelo
worker, relieves almost Instantly and
cures after other remedies fail. Other
treatments eau't reach the diseased
parts  like  Catarrhozone, because  it
goes to the source of the trouble along
with the air you breathe. Catarrhozone is free from cocaine, it -eaves no
bud aftt-r-ell'eets, it is simply; nature's
own cure. Accept no subst title for
Catarrhozone, which alone can cure
catarrh.    Sold by all druggists.

THE KETTLE VALLEY LINE
It is surprising that there should
be any opposition from our citizens
to the proposition of granting the
Kettle Valley line a franchise to use
■ Third street from the river to Observation mountain. Nevertheless it
is a fact that such opposition is being
quietly fomented by a few persons ;
but the agitation is not thought to
be strong enough to be dangerous.
The arguments against the city
granting the railroad company the
right to use street are few, and can
easily be refuted. The strongest
■objections urged are, that the road
will depreciate the value of property
in its immediate vicinity, and that
it will prove a source of danger to
life and limb. The first objection
does not necessarily bold good, because there are many cities in the
east of from 10,000 to 100,000 population where railways run through
the very best residential portions.
The other argment is equally as
flimsy. The city has the right to
regulate the speed of trains within
the city limits, and a train running
through the city at a rate of from
six io ten miles an hour should not
prove as dangerous as an electric
tram car; and, besides, if the city
ever grows very populous, we believe the council could compel the
railway coindnny to maintain watchmen at all streot crossings.
On the other band, the points in
favor of this franchise being granted
are quite numerous. First and I'orc-
niOBt is the fact that Grand Folks
will have both a passenger und a
freight depot in the very centre of
the business district. If the Kettle
Valley road were only to operate a
line between this city and Franklin
camp, this item might not carry
much weight; but the-company has
applied to the Dominion government for a charter from Midway to
Vancouver, with running rights over
the Canadian Pacific from this city
to Midway, which would practically
mean that const passengers and
freight could be landed in the centie
of the city. There is also a strong
probability of the gap between Be-
public and Spokane being constructed in the near future. The
second argument is also of equal
potency, because it affects every
citizen's pocketbook. By the construction of the bridge at Third
street, and the road from the river
to Observation mountain, about
$25,000 or $30,000 would be paid
out for labor inside the city limits.
The major portion ot this amount
would be distributed in the city.
A third argument, which is also
worthy of consideration, is tbat with
one down-town station, the other
two roads might find it advisable to
come a little closer to the business
centre, and a union station would
probably be the result. With a
dowu-town union station, even our
mail service could be vastly improved, as the mails could be kept
open at least half an hour longer before the departure of truing
It is urged by some that if the
road is to cut the city in two, it
should follow the slough from the
river to the mountain.' If these people will use their thinking faculties for a second, they can readily
see the dangers of such a route. The
road would follow a steep bluff, and
and teams coming from above would
be unable to see trains until they
were upon them. On Third street
the road would divide the city at ifs
narrowest point, three or four blocks
taking it from the river to the
mountain, and the grade would be
the same us the street grade.
A weather prophet has made the
prediction that the rainfall on Kaien
island will sufficiently heavy during
the next provincial election to drown
the McBride government.
It has been definitely, definitely
decided that the name of the Pacific
terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific
won't be Andersonville.
The Imp Hoax.
This brazen impost me on tho credulity of tlio English public wus the result
■jf a wager between the Duke of Montague und another nobleman In 17-11).
hi discussing tbe ainiiziug gullibility
of the English people tbe former declared tbat If one were to advertise It
well tbat be would jump Into a quart
bottle ull London would go to see bim
do It. The wager being made, un ud
verliseuicnt wus Inserted in all of the
leading papers promising that tbe feat
would be performed on a certain date
ut tbe Haymnrket theater. On the appointed day the theater Was packed
from pit to dome, and vamSf hundreds
were turned from tbe doors. Tbe supposed magician appeared* m tbe stage
and bad tbe temerity te state tbut if
tbe audience would pay "Bouble tbe
price he would enter a pint bottle,
shown on tbe stage tutte, instead of
tbe quart flask, as furnished. He then
hurriedly escaped by tbe stage door,
A riot resulted, in wblcb tbe theater
was badly wrecked, and th* duke and
bis companion bad to leave town until
the excitement was well o**r. ■
The Original CraAe.
There Is, If one comes to think of it
■ays the London Queen, more connection than Is nt first apparent between
the "tree top" and tbe cradle of tbe
old refruin, witb which generation utter generation of babies bas been crooned to sleep, Tbe cradles of the ninth
and tentb centuries were formed of a
section of tbe trunk of a tree, scooped
out, witb small boles bored at the
sides through whlcb to pass the cords
back uud forth to prevent the child
from falling out Tbe nttturul convexity of tbe wood on tbe outside ennbled
the nurse to rock tbe infant.
The enormous antiquity of tbe now
obsolete cradle 1b startling wben one
remembers the wicker cradle or basket
of the time of Moses, nnd later it Is
known on excellent authority thnt tho
Itomnn babies slept In cradles. These
were the predecessors of the elaborately curved crudlcs which formed so Important a part of tbe bedroom furniture until within the last fifty years.

is often called the Yule log, and It wus
on Christmas eve that It was put on
the wide hearth. Around it would
gather the entire family, and Its entrance was tie occasion of a great dcnl
of ceremony. There were music aud
rejoicing, while the one authorized to
