Another   Division  in the!
Public School Next
Month
The feature of the past year in.
the Boundary mining industry was
tbe remarkable showing made by
the Granby Consolidated, which declared iis last dividend on December
30, 1910, bringing the total up to
$4,048,630. and earned $135,000 in
undivided profits. Tbe annual report of the company laat year
showed net earnings in excess of
$1,600,000, giving it a record to
date of $5,773,630.
The school board bas been disappointed in not being able to secure
an additional teacher for the public
school. She now declines to come,
although having previously agreed
to do so. In consequence of thus
not being able to secure a teach,-r
for toe beginning of the term, the
board has decided not to open a
division in the parish hall, but. to
rush to completion at least one room
of the new addition and if possible
open school in it on February 3,
providing a teachsr can be secured.
As there is no more available Beating space in the present primary di
visions, parents are requested to
postpone sending beginners, as no
beginners will be enrolled until an
additional teacher and room are
available.
That there may bt no interruption of the work of the senior and
intermediate grades, when* another
division is opened, and that tbere
may be the least possible in the primary grades, tbe pupils have been
re-arranged according to the following list, and will assemble the first

Jonkini's Brain
When they Bi>otjp, ot Henry .Tonkins
all the village people said, "His inventions prnve for certain  he's  got
big things In u1h head," tor the scores
ot weird contraptions lt was Jonklus',
joy to buiM somewhat toolt their nis-
tic tanclefl, iiatS their hearts with wor-1
ship filled.     First ot ull he built an'
airship that did everything   but   liy,
though ho told a dozen tickets—flrst
return from earth to sky.     Then he
mado  a  sl.-t._i  producer,   which  was
guaranteed to bring soothing slumber
to the user.      Henry  swanked like}
I'.nything that Insomnia was conquered, and he took it ns a joke when the
only chap who tried It went to sleep
anil never awoke.
Undeterred, nn Odour Killer was his
next assault on fame; this would soften motor fragrance, hush the hum of
month hung game; but a public demonstration brought disaster iu its
train, for lite O.K. found Its master
in n ripe and rampant drain, antl the
blithe and buoyant Jonklns suffered
typhoid for a spell, though lt fal!ed_to
stop him thinking—he would do that,
ill or well.
Now, he cried, when convalescent—
now the world shall hall H.J. ns the
brainiest of mortals that has over
seen the light of day! With my automatic bagpipes music-lovers I'll enthrall; to-night by stealth I'll place
them 'neat'i MacPhcrBon's garden
wall. What joy will seize him whon
he hears the airs he loves the best!
Whnt viBion.. of sweet banks and braes
shall punctuate his rest!
At midnlgiit came a doleful Bound
from Mac's potato patch. It's catsl
lio growled. Awa, yo fiends, nnd
other things to match. Bang', bang.
A big revolver belched at Jonklus
chunks of lead, and locals then remarked with truth, He'd big things ln
his head!
A smart young doctor sat facing his
patient.
Yes, my frleutl, lie said, gladly, you
are quite well again now, add need
not come here again.
Tho patient recovering from a bad
llness, was relieved to hear this.
Then his fatio became overcast again.
Uud aboud tier bill, docdor, he said
—need it be told he was a German?
I ain't got mooch money. Vill you
daku tier MM oud ln trade?
Tho kind hearted doctor eyed hla
patient's shabby clothes.
Well, pei'i.-aps I might, ho said agreeably.     Er—what ls your trade?
I wis der leader of a Sherman band,
docdor, aaid the patient, proudly. We
wil! blay ln der front of your house
every evening for von month.
Pedertrlan—What do you foetryour
horse on?
Cabby—Shavings.
Pedestrian—Shavings? And does
he eat them?
Cabby—Yes. Look nt lilm for a
happy horse. 1 bought him a pair
of green spectacles the other day, and
blow nie It he doesn't think he's eating lettuce!
The Danish Postmastcr-Oencral has
devised nn ingenious method of pro-
vldlng money for the education of the
blind. A copper coin, a luck-penny,
Is to be male in tho Koyal Mint, and
Is lo be sold to the parents of every
new-born child who has the gift of
sight by the nurse attending thc mother. Parents aro to pay whatever sum
they think lit for the luck penny,
which is worth only a halfpenny and
bears th.o device, "The child seeing
the light for the first time presents a
tribute to the child who will never
Bee."

Advantages and Saving by Using
The Loading Platform
In ilti;. writing we desiro to put before o,ir Western Farmers the
saving and advantage ot loading grain dlrec*. on cars. Shipping grain
through an elevator, lt matters no' whether a Government elevator or
one run by an elevator company or Individ-nil owner, does not add
thc leai.t fraction ot a cent to tlie value of ho grain, nor does It give
the farmer any better chance of marketing It to advantage than, when

KIDNEYS WERE BADLY DISEASED
AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW IT
Was completely Cured by Less Than
Three Boxes of
DR. CHASE'S
KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS
Women are very often deceived and
mistaken In regard to kidney disease.
The pains In the back are attributed
to other derangements, and kidney disease Is allowed to run on and on until beyond tho reach of medical
science.
There Is .needless suffering, and
life Itself ls risked, because backacho
Is not recognized as the most marked
symptom of kidney disease.
There ls no treatment which so
quickly relieves and cures kidney
pains la the back as Dr. Chase's Kld-
ney-Llver Pltls. As proof of this
rjad Mrs.  Patterson's letter:—
Mrs. Richard Patterson, Haldlmand,
Gaspe Co., Que., writes: "I will gladly say that I was cured of kidney
trouble by -using Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Fills. When I began using
this medicine I was crippled with sore
back and did not know what was the
trouble. In looking over Dr. Chase's
Almanac I saw br. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills advertised and doclded to
try tbem.
"I had not used two boxes beforo
my back wns all right, and before I
had completed the third box was entirely cured. ■ Tliere lias been no return of the old kidney trouble, and
I therefore believe the curo to be permanent. x

Zam-Buk b A Sure Core
Mr. Jas. Davey, ot 78G Elllce At-
enue, Winnipeg, says:—"A few months
since I was cured ot a poisoned finger
through the timely use ot Zam-Buk.
"I cut a deep gash' across the
knuckle os the flrst linger ot my right
hand ln opening a lobster can. I
suffered at the time with the soreness
and pain, but had no Idea lt would become a serious wound. However, ln
about two days I was greatly alarmed;
as my whole hand and arm to the elbow became suddenly Inflamed, and
the finger was much discolored, showing signs ot blood-poisoning. The
pain was dreadful and 1 wu forced to
leave off my work and go home.
"The wound on the knuckle had
been poisoned by dust and dirt getting Into lt. I then decided to start
the Zam-Buk treatment, and having
first bathed the cut, I applied the healing balm. It soothed the pain almost Instancy, and by next day there
was a great improvement.
"In a week's time, through perseverance with this wonderful preparation, a complete cure was brought
about."
Zam-Buk ls Just as good for eczema,
ulcers, scalp sores, abscesses, piles,
ringworm, bolls, varicose ulcers, running sores, cold sores, chapped bands,
etc. It draws all poisonous foulness
from a wound or sore and then heals.
Use It, too, for cuts, burns, bruises
and all skin injuries. Zam-Buk Soap
Bhould be us id ln conjunction with tbe
balm for washing wounds and eoro
places. Excellent, too, for baby's
bath.

FRIDA"Y, JANUARY 3, 1913
Doukhobor Commissioner Blake-
more's newspaper wants the Mormons driven out of Vicioria. At
Ihis distance from the provincial
capital, it in difficult to say whether
Mr. Biilkfinore merely wants another investigating erimniissioner-
ship, or if his bostilty toward the
Mormons is prompted by a desire
to get rid of them in order to make
room for more desirable citizens—
the Doukhobors, for instance,
Every Tory paper in Canada pre'
dieted tbat Hon. R. L Borden
would be included in the distribo
tion of New Year's honors by his
majesty. Tbey all agreed that this
would be a gracious way for the
king to endorse Mr. Barden's naval
policy. As tbe premier's name does
not appear in the list of the Canadians honored, it is not a presumptuous conjecture to Bay that his ma
jesty prefers the Liberal policy.
Tbe Nelson city council has inaugurated a system of civio financing worthy of emulation by otber
municipalities. The scheme is to
issue "baby" debentures—debentures of small denominations—and
then disposing of them to her citizens. By this method the interest
money is kept at home. There are
lots of people in every small town
who keep their surplus funds in the
banks at 3 per cent interest, By investing in 6 per cent city debentures
nf their home town at 85 cents the
interest   would   be    equivalent   to
Mr. Blakemore gives but one reason for thinking that tbe Doukhobors should be treated differently
from tbe rest of tbe people in tbe
province, and that is their sincerity
in opposing the law. There never
was a murderer or a forger who was
not sincere in his opposition to the
law, but as far as is known no special regulations have been made because of thiB. The Donkhohor, if he
attends to his own business and
obeys the Isws of Canada, should
not be an undesirable citizen, hut
the Doukhobor who '-sincerely opposes" Ihe Uw and is allowed to do
so because of his 'honesty of purpose" must be dispensed with. If
the government, is to mnke a new
set of regulations fur every mad re
ligious sect which chooses to make
Canada its headquarters, the province would soon become thecsmp
ing ground of every anarchist and
fanatic on the'contineni. Mr. Blakemore wbb told to go out and get a
report, and he did it. Presumably
Mr. Bowser was pleased wilh the re
suit, as it shows tbe result of care
ful coaching. Undoubtedly Mr.
Blakemore will get more commissions to investigate, the high cost of
living and the price of coal in British Columbia. Tbe attorney-general doea not realize tbat he is becoming a public nuisance, menacing tbe
community hy his fine disregard for
either law or morals It is evidently his intention to permit the Doukhobors to continue their tactics of
flouting the flag under whicb they
are afforded every-day protection,
and his scheme for sending a com
mission down every now and then
to repeat the formula that tho gov
ernment means business can only
end in some dire calamity. Left unrestrained, the Doukhobors will become a law unto themselves alone,
and woe betide the other resident-'
af the district. Tbey have nl_i.-a>l v
shor,n themselves to be undrairalilc;
under the Bowser - Blakemore plan
they become an absolute danger.—

Newspaper Law
1. A postmaster is required to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a subscriber does not take hia paper out of
the postoffice, and state the reason for -
its not being taken. .Any neglect to
do no makes the postmaster responsible to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he must pay all arrear- j
ages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments ate made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the office or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a paper
out of the post office, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to
send it, the subscriber is bound to
pay for it if he takes it out of the
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what
he uses.
5 The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers or periodicals from the post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled for, is prima
facie evidence Of intentional fraud.

when I was ordered to bed by the medical
man attending roe. I received considerable relief but after a fow months the
trouble started again. It was then that

GROWING GIRLS AND
ALLJOMEN
Should Keep Their Blood Supply
Rich, Red snd Pare.
On every nand you see women nnd
growing girlB in the deadly clutches
of anaemia. Slowly, but surely a
pallor as of death settles on their
cheeks; their eyes grow dull; their
appetlto flckle; their steps languid.
Dally they nro being robbed of all
vitality and brightness. Tho trouble
lf neglected, becomes more acuta until tho eigne of early consumption be-
como apparent. What women and
young girls In this condition need is
now, rich, red blood, and there Is no
other medicine can do thn work of
Dr. Williams* Pink Pills, In making
this now, good blood. These Pills
ninko girls and women wel*» nnd bring
back the charm and brightness of perfect, regular health. Hero Is a bit of
proof. M.'ss I.lllln O'Carroll, Norwood, Ont., Bays;—"About two years
ago my health began to tall. I was
weak, run down and had no ambition
for anything 1 had frequent headaches, would be completely tired out
after tho least exertion, and had little
or no appetlto. A doctor who was
giving mo mcdlclno filially told me he
feared I was going Into consumption,
which, of course mado mc very much
down-hearted. As the medicine I
was taking was not doing mo any
good I decided to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, aud I shall ever teel grateful that I did.so. My Btory may be
summed up ln tho words "nine boxes
of the Pills fully restored my health,
