Farmers'   Institute Elects
Officers for the Current
Resolutions Adopted in Favor of a Fair and an Irrigation System
The annual meeting of the Kettle
Valley Fajmers' institute was held
in the city hall on Wednesday
evening, President Jas. Rooke presiding.
The minutes of the three previous
meetings were read and approved.
The president stated that he had
nothing of especial interest to communicate to the members. He believed that the institute could accomplish a great deal of good, however, and if for no other purpose it
should be encouraged in order that
the members might obtain the benefits of the government's literature on
agricultural topics, free lectures,
The secretary-treasurer's report
showed that four meetings had been
held during the past year. The institute now has a membership of 68,
and there is a balance in the treasury of $55.15. The expenses during the year bad heen $12.85. Interest in the organization is increas

President—A. D. Morrison.
Vice-President—Scott Gallaway.
Secretary-Treasurer—Fred Clark.
Directors—Jas. Rooke, C. A. S.
Atwood, Leonard Vaughan, Tom
Powers and J. D. Honsberger.
The new officers, on assuming
tbeir offices, made brief speeches,
thanking the members for the honor
tbey had conferred on them.
Secretary Clark stated tbat he
would have more time to devote to
his office during the coming yenr
than he had had in the past. He
reported having received a letter
from tbe C.P.R. in reference to its
industrial department, an institution which be thought would prove
advantageous to the community if
' furnished thej necessary data. He
also advocated holding an agricultural exhibition in this city next fall
Now wa" on opportune time to
make a start. There wis lots of
material in the valley for such a
show. All that wns required to
make the enterprise a success was
for the citizens to devote a little of
their time to it.
Mr. Atwood was also heartily in
favor of this scheme, and thought
the city council should be approach,
ed on the subjeot. The institute
should also take up the matter of
securing an irrigation system for the
valley. The advice of a competent
engineer should be obtained through
the co-operation of the city council
and the board of trade.
The following resolutioes were
unanimously adopted:
Moved by Mr. Atwood, seconded
by Mr. Powers—That the secretary
be instructed to communicate with
the city council and the board of
trade of Grand Forks relat ve to se
curing an expert opinion in regard to
an irrigation system for the valley,
and to ask them to appoint committees to confer with a committee from
the Farmers' institute.
Moved by Mr. Galloway, seconded
by Mr. Collins—That the secretary
be instructed to communicate with
the city council and the board of
trade of the city of Grand Forks in
reyard to a fall exhibition, and if
advisable to appoint committees to
confer with a committee from the
Formers' institute.
Moved by Mr. Atwood, seconded
by Mr. Honsberger—That the thankB
of the institute be tendered to the
city council for the use of the council chambers for its meetings, and
to the press for the courtesies extended to tbe association during the

of $25 per year.

Constable McDonald deputized
John Webster to take Harrigan
to New Westminster, and he left for

Some Good Individual Playing in Last Monday's
Residence Damaged by Fire
While thawing out the water
pipes in the basement of T. A. Mc-
Intyre's residence, on upper Main
street, opposite the Methodist
church, last Monday, the fire communicated with the building, and
before the brigade could reach the
scene and extinguish it about $900
worth of damage had been done.
The department responded promptly
to the call, and it did not take tbe
boys long to subdue the flames after
they arrived on the ground. The
damage to the building is estimated
at $500, and to the furniture at
C. P. R. Extensions
In Montreal, on Friday last, Second Vice-President Whyte announced that the C.P.R. program
for western extensions had been set
tied by the executive. One of tb<
most important lines to be built will
be from Wey burn to Lethbridge,
about 400 miles, running about Midway between the main line and tbe
international boundary. Twenty-five
miles of this line is expected to be
completed in the spring. There is
to be another line from Lethbridge
to connect Macleod wilh the Calgary
and Edmonton line, a little north of
High River station. The branch
north from tIheadle to connect the
line from Lacombe to Alix will bc
carried as far us Ghost Pine creek
this year. The foundation of a huge
scheme of terminals at Fort William
will also be laid this year. Mr.
Whyte added that while he did not
wish to state the exact amount of
the appropriations fur western development, they ran into millions.
The league hockey game in this
city last Monday night between
Greenwood and Grand Forks resulted in an easy victory for the
home team, the score being 6 to 1.
The game was fast, the ice being in
first-claes shape. The members of
the local team were in splendid condition, and gave the best exhibition
of hockey witnessed in the rink here
this season. Elliot and Mann, for
tbe home team, played an exceptionally good game, tbe latter making a very pretty individual play in
the last quarter, taktng the puck up
the whole length of the rink alone
and making a successful shot at the
Greenwood net. The winning of
this game places the Grand Forks
team at the top of tbe league. Tbe
line-ups follow:

Sudden Death
Word was received in this
this morning tbat Mr. Richardson,
who has been station agent of the
C.P.R. at Farron for a number of
years, bud died suddenly at that
place during the night of heart
failure. Deceased was about fifty
yenrs of age. His fumily is ul present visiting in Vancouver.
February Rod and Gun
Varied in its contents, but redolent throughout of the many delights
of the Canadian winter the February number of "Rod and Gun nnd
Motor Sports in Canada," published
by W. J. tayior, Woo.detook, Ont.,
brings with it the breeziness attached to this particular season of the
year. The record of a fine snowshoe
tramp, on Indian tale of a mooje
race on Ihe ice, the story of a winter
in northern Ontario and an article
on Snow Blindness by Martin Hunter, an ex-Hudson Bay Factor, show
how many sided are the beauties of
the Canadian winter, and how thoroughly the inhabitants of the Dominion appreciate and enjoy them.
A fine illustrated account of the
Qualification Climb of Mt. Hermit,
in connection with the last meeting
of the Alpine Club of Canada, is contributed by Mr. D. B. Taylor, who
has been touring the west as representative of the magazine since that
event. It is evident from this arti
cle that the spirit of the mountains
seized the writer and ma.ie him an
enthusiast. One of the best papers
written by Mr. Bonnycnstle Dale,
"Chief Cnniin Tl'kope of the Skag-
its,"with the author's illustrations,
tells of an old Indian chief out in
Vancouver island, who makes canoes
with primitive tools and disposes of
them at unheard-of prices. Notes
on the last deer season, a couple of
grave indictments against the alleged
inefficiency of the Ontario fish nnd
game depnrtment, one of the Rev.
A.Murdoch's copital hunting stories,
Some Old Time Reminiscences of
Old Toronto, intensely interesting
telling of pioneer days, and stories
of camping and fishing trips, are
some of the further papers making
up a number strong in every department of outdoor life with which the
ningnzine denls. It is Canadian
throughout, imbued with the spirit
the Dominion, and nil good.
The fourth annual meeting of the
western branch of the Mining Institute of Canada, was held in Greenwood on Monday and Tuesday The
following resolutions were unanimously adopted:
That the institute dues hereby
endorse and express its appreciation of the action of the provincial
government in aiding the important
experiments which are being conducted at Nelson towards the separation and reduction of complex
lead-zinc ores by electro-thermic
That, this meeting does hereby
express its appreciation of Ihe services rendered the mining industry
by the first and present minister of
mineB, tbe Hon. Win. Templeman,
and of the action of the Rt. Hon.
the premier of the Dominion in retaining him in oflice.
That this institute does hereby
express its approval and appreciation of the action of the federal government, through its mines deportment, in seeking a solution of the
difficulty attendant on the economical smelting of eastern iron ores by
practical experiments in electro-
thermic reduction, conducted at the
public cost. In this connection this
meeting desires to commend to the
government the desirability of aiding
in and codtributing to the advanced
experiments which have already
been made in this province towards
the separation and reduction of lead
zinc ores by slectrothermic energy.
These experiments hove demonstrated the practicability of the separation of metallic zinc from metallic lead and its recovery ns spelter
from complex lend zinc ores. Important deposits of such ores occur
in this province and remain un-
worked through luck of economic
reduction fncilities. In the opinion
of this meeting n solution of this
problem will be of very great importance to thc mining industry of
the Dominion.

Wealth of the Province
The I'ncilic province is regarded
as the Dominion's great storehouse
ol minerals and timber, says the
Toronto Globe. K iture has been
magnificently kind in rearing tbe
great peaks with their stores of mineral wealth, nnd clothing the const
slopes with a growth of timber unequalled in the world. Much of the
mineral wealth io still undiscovered,
and there nre areas awaiting the
the more careful prospector. While
it would be nn over-courageous
thing to declare the timber wealth
of any region inexhaustible, the
forests of the Pacilic slope* arc certain to meet all the demands of this

Mining Stock Quotations

the stocks mentioned:

of   this   character, and if a second
one is required, it should be located I bringing to light the mystery which
at some point in the  interior,   thus ! is hidden benenth  our surface, and
reducing the expense of taking unbalanced people to the institution.
While it may be claimed that the
people of the interior are likely to
retain their sanity, thus obviating
the need of such an establishment,
yet occasionally an individual arises
who persists in firing shots at imaginary shadows, and it is always
well to be prepared for emergencies.
If the delegations from other sections of the province resembled the
one from Grnnd Forks, the annual
Conservative convention at the coast
must have been a great jollification
of government officials, employees,
ami prospective officials and employees. There appears to be a
great deal of frailty lurking around
Richard McBride's civil service
as while this work was being executed the habit of fighting would be
lost, humanity would have gained
by it a double process, both scientific
and social.
Science teaches us that man is
composed principally of water,
which probably accounts for the
weakness of the average mortal.
A "dance hall" is more appropriate in a wild mining camp than in
a highly civilized community.

Outside cleanliness is less than hall the battle. A man may
scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is ?Iean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or blood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stomachs. Blood diseases are found where there is unclean blood.
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases. It makes a man's inside, clean
and healthy. It cleans the digestive organs, makes pure,
clean  blood, anil clean, healthy flesh.
It restores tone to thc nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration,   It contains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation thf; most unclean uncleanliness. Dr. Pieroe's Pleasant Pel-
'eta ourc it.   1. -y never gripe.   Easy to take as candy.

manufacturers reap the harvest, unless great enre is taken to dress
warmly nnd keep the feet dry. This
is tbe advice of an old eminent authority, who says thnt rheumatism
and kidney trouble weather is here,
and also tells what to do in case of
an attack.
Get from any good prescription
pharmacy one-half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion, one ounce Compound Kargon, three ounces Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla. Mix by
baking in a bottle and take a teaspoonful after meals and at bedtime.
Just try this simple .home-made
mixture at thc lirst sign of rheumatism, or if your back nches or you
feel I lint the kidneys are not acting
just right. This is said to be a
splendid kidney regulator, and almost certnin remedy for all forms of
rheumatism, which is caused by
uric acid in tha blond, which tbe
kidneys fail to lilter out. Any one
can easily prepare this at home and
at small cost.
Druggists in this town and vicinity, when shown the prescription,
