Display to tbe Calgary
At the meeting of the Grand
Forks board of trade on Wednesday
evening a great deal of routine business was transacted, and a number
of important subjects were debated.
A long discussion on the proposition of tbe establishment of a cannery in the city, developed the fact
that the sentiment of tbe members
of tbe board was in favor of a local
enterprise, provided an organization
for tbat purpose could be perfected
and a government loan secured. The
committee appointed at the last
meeting to collect a display for tbe
Calgary fair, reported that the
greater portion of the exhibit had
been shipped by freight, and that
the balance would be forwarded by
express tbis week. A communica
tion was read from the Dominion
Cannery company, stating that the
company was willing to consider
a proposition to establish a cannery
at this point, and asking what inducements, if any,the city would be
willing to grant.

E. Williamson, of Rock Creek,
has just received returns from two
cars of silver-lead ore shipped to th*
Trail smelter from bis Sunnyside

According to the press dispatches,
Luther McCarty, tbe prizefighter
wbose tragic death in the ring in
Calgary is deplored, made £10,000

eighteen months he spent $70,000
in ways that suited him and his
friends, while his wife worked as a
servant in a restaurant in Fargo. To
spend $70,000 in eighteen months
is to get rid ef the cash at an average rate of $4000 a month, or £1000
a week, or $145 a day, week in and
week out.—Detroit Free Press.

conferred honors upon him, presented

regalia, and offered to give blm an

discovered there was a matrimonial

Had His Revenge
He wus a surly and quarrelsome old
farmer, and the only person of any
importance who had managed lo avoid
clashing with him was the mild-mannered vicar.
But even this forbearing gentleman
lost his temper when the farmer Impudently turned his horses loose ln the
churchyard and refused to tnke them
out again.
High words ensued, and the vicar
so far forgot himself as to call the
farmer a broken-down old mule.
Off went the farmer on the instant
and crashed noisily Into tho village
lawyer's office.
The vicar has just called me a broken-down old mule, he bawled. What
um I to do?
Now the lawyer had once received
a severe rebuff from the farmer, and
had waited for years for a chance to
repay lt. Here was his opportunity,
and he seized It wltn both hands.

In the Spring Most People Need a
Tonic Medicine.
One of the surest signs that the
blood is out ct order Is the pimples,
unsightly eruptions and eczema thai
come frequently with the change from
winter, to spring. These prove that
the long indoor life ot winter has had
its effect upon the blood, and that a|
tonic medicine Is needed to put It
right. Indeed there are few people
who do not need a tonic at this season. Bad blood doea not 'merely
show Itself ln disfiguring eruptions.
To this same condition ls due attacks
ot rheumatism and lumbago; thc sharp
stabbing pains of sciatica and neuralgia; poor appetite and a desire to
avoid exertion. You cannot cure
these troubles by lhe use of purgative
medicines—you need a tonic, and a
tonic only, aud among all medicines
there Is none can equal Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for their tonic, llte-glving,
nerve-restoring powers. Every dose
of this medicine makes new, rich
blood which drives out impurities,
stimulates every oigan and brings a
feeling of new health aud energy lo
weak, tired, ailing men, women and
children. If you are out of sorts
give Ihis medicine a trial and see how
quickly it will restore the appetite,
revive drooping spirits, and fill your
veins with new, health-giving blood.
You can get thee pills from any
medicine dealer or by mall at BO cents

Lapiet of Novelists
Novelists are in a hurry at limes,
but only a few of tbelr readers are
critical. In a detective story of many
years ago the vllllan can-led up to IiIb
room a casket, containing 50,000 sovereigns and handed It lo accomplices
on a ladder.
This Is eclipsed In a novel by Mr.
Oity Boothby. Here the vllllan stipulates that 100,000 pounds In hard cash
shnll be brought to him Becrctly at the
place appointed. A gentleman with a
weakness for arithmetic states this

It It small wonder he likes to tell

can eat almost anything I want without trouble.

Regarding the tate Concerts which
King George and Queen Mary contemplate reviving, it might be mentioned
that many complaints have .been
made ln the past about the overcrowding at these functions. The official list
of guests has so considerably Increased that it has beeu necessary for the
Lord Chamberlain to invite a much
larger number that can be comfortably
accommodated. During Queen Victoria's reign the-number was limited
to two thousand. Everybody who has
been in office or who ls lu office gets
an Invitation to a State ceremonial
as a matter of course, and there are
a great number of other personages
who are on the permanent list.

The experience of Mr. Norman P.
Hendricks ls not an unusual one.
Writing from Prlnc Albert, he says:
"My business calls me from one place
to another, and I am frequently up
against the bad water problem of the
Canadian North-West. In so many
places the water disagrees with mc,
and I- used to be kept very miserable
on that account. An old settler told
me one day that nothing is so useful
to newcomers as Nerviline, and he
explained to me how valuable It proved to him under similar circumstances
twenty-flve years ago. You would
hardly believe how happy and comfortable my trips are since I learned
of Nerviline. I look upon 'Nerviline'
as my trusty friend, and give it a place
of honor In my hand bag. In fact I
wouldn't think of being without it in
a country like this. It cures any little stomach trouble or digestive disturbances and relieves a cramp in ten
seconds. To cure Neuralgia, Earache, Toothache, or pain in your muscles llko Rheumatism, you simply
can't beat Nerviline."

with Bohemiatilsin. All that was best j
ln the social and artistic world wasj
to be found there. It was one of the]
few restaurants which- kept open

Grand Forks now has one of the
finest moving picture theatres in the
province. We should not be satisfied with this, howe'er. We also
want a modern playhouse for dramatic productions. The Sun has
often made a plea for a building of
this character, but up to the presei t
time no one has felt inclined to put
his money in such an enterprise.
But a scheme has lately been
broached that appears to be feasible,
as well as inexpensive. It has been
suggested that a company be formed
to acquire the opera house. By
tearing our tbe inside, constructing
a balcony and removing the stage to
the ground floor, this building could
be converted into a modern playhouse. It is claimed that tnese alterations would not cost over $2500.
If these figures are correct, the work
should certainly be undertaken, because in a growing town a first-class
theatre is almost as much of a necessity as a first-class bote).
A special cablegram from London
to The Sun informs us that the
suffragette bomb outrages have been
responsible for the growth of a new
profession—that of bomb finder.
Tbe police have issued descriptions
of moro tban a score of men who are
wanted for "•finding" fake bombs.
When the occupation of theBe enterprising individuals ceases in Eng
land, they might come over to Canada and find profitable employmen
by assisting the Tory papers in manufacturing fake popular sentiment

And all the Woi Id was young and gay.
Beauty and Grace have passed   away;
Tho Dryad, too, has had her day,
Today the Coon has crabbed the scene
T i grin and shuflle on the Green,
And all his monkey shines display
Within a worldwide cabaret!
Gone are the gods of yesterday;
Their day of grace has passed away,
Their beautv banished from the scene!
The grass is dead upon the Green,
Where Youth   ho   longer   holds his
And all the World is old and gray.
Gone is the Nymph—the Dryad gone;
Gone are the Fragrant Years.
Out of the Night is hatched a spawn—
And Caliban appears!

Marie Antoinette had a pssslon for
extraordinary headdresses. One structure tbat abe Invented was forty-five
lnchea ln height and waa composed of
many yards ot gauze and ribbon. From
the folds sprang bunches of roses, and
the entire edifice was surmounted by a
waving plume of white feathers. It la
recorded tbat when Maria Theresa received a portrait of ber daughter wearing .this headdress sbe exclaimed:
"This ls no daughter of mine! It ia the
portrait of an actress!"
The Duchess de Chartres, determined
to surpass tbe queen, designed a bead-
dress two Inches higher. It waa made
