A BU1LDI
Four Large Brick Business
Blocks Now Under Construction Here
Taken as a whole then the outlook is much brighter now than it
has been for a long time and a hig
improvement is expected, and those
who shape treir course accordingly
will be the winners during the next
six months.
COPPER CLAIMS
More Will Be Started as
Soon as Material Is
Available
BOUNDARY BREVITIES
The building boom, frequently
predicted by The Sun, can now be
said to have been fairly inaugurated in this city. The work of replacing the buildings destroyed by
the disastrous conflagration last
Bummer with more imposing and
substantial structures has been
started in earnest, and when the
blocks now in course of construction,
together with those contemplated,
are completed, Grand Korks will
have the appearance of solidity lyul
permanency. The frame buildings
destroyed by the fire are be replaced
by two and three-story blocks, constructed of brick, stone and  cemc*t.
On Wednesday morning work
was commenced on the foundations
of Wm. Bonthron's $10,000 business
block, on the corner of Winnipeg
avenue and First street; on Bower
and Pribilsky's double-store building on First street, and on the B. C.
Telephone company's building on
Bridge street. Active preparations
have also been begun for the erec-
.ior. of new Davis briok block.
Besides the above, thc Eastern
Townships hank will erect a handsome building as soon as the necessary preliminary arrangements are
completed. The work of rebuilding
the Grand Forks hotel on Riverside
avenue is only delayed on account
of the difficulty of obtaining brick
ut preeent. And last, hut not least,
plans for the rebuilding of the
famous Yale hotel arc gradually being perfected. As at present planned,
tbis will be the finest hotel building
in Southern British Columbia.
About ten men are working at the
Denoro mine.
The surveying of the Greenwood-
Phoenix tunnel has been finished as
far as the Crescent mine, and preparations are now being made to build
a blaoksmitb shop and other necessary buildings.
George W. Rumberger, mayor of
Phoenix, has just returned to that
city from the Cobalt and Gowgancla
country, where he spent several
weeks. Mr. Rumberger has large
interests in the Elk lake district, but
prefers the prosperity of the Pacific
slope to that of the New Ontario
Mining region.
A moral wave is sweeping over
Phoenix. At a meeting of the city
council last week a bylaw requiring
all hotels to have 30 rooms for tbe
accommodation of guests, or pay an
extra license fee of $300, received
its second reading. It is believed
that this will mean that 50 per cent
of the saloons will go out of business this summer.
Joseph Garner appeared hefore
Magistrate Hood in Phoenix last
week on a charge of theft. He was
accused of having taken a watch
from a pal's pocket while the latter
was sleeping. Garner pleaded not
guilty, but the evidence appeared
conclusive, and as his past record
did not help him any, he was sentenced to two years in jail.
A company with the title of the
Fife Mines, Ltd., has been granted a
certificate of incorporation as a limited company, with a capital of
$2,000,000. The new undertaking
has been formed to acquire the Fife,
Dykehead No. 2, Ben-Hur and the
Three Bells mineral claims, near
Fife. Charles Dempster has suc-
ceedidg in interesting an eastern
syndicate in these properties.

advanced and the volumn of busi-
is associating with her a number of
the best known Canadian writers
The Home Journal, when lhe pro-
posed changes hnve been inaugurated, will be one of the best of its class
on the continent.
H. B. Cannon, Fred Clyde anil L.
E. Oliver left on Saturday last for
Tasso Harbor, on the west coast of
Moresby island, one of the Queen
Charlotte group, where they will
spend the summer in opening up
the Contact group of copper properties. They will employ a force of
about twenty men.
This group of very promising copper cl'iims was recently bonded lor
$100,000 by Mr. A. B. W. Hodges,
manager of the Granby smelter, and
associates, who have made one payment of 810,000 upon the bond.
These properties, which are owned
by Messrs. Frank Fritz, P. H.
O'Connor, H. Parks and H. B. Cannon, of this city, are situated in the
immediate neighborhood of the
group in which thc Hon. Thomas
Taylor, the minister of public works,
holds a one-quarter interest.
Mr. Hodges recently mude a personal inspection of these  properties.
Pleasant Social Event
The anniversary ball given by
Gateway Lodge No 45, 1.0.0.F., in
the opera house on Wednesday night
proved to be the .social event of the
season. About seventy couples were
present, and dancing was kept up until the early hours on Thursday morning. An excellent midnight repast
was served by the lodge in the store
beneath the hall. The music was
furbished by tbe Victor orchestra,
and is said to have surpassed anything ever heard at u dance in this
city.

by the provincial government and
General Manager Chamberlain, of
the (irand Trunk Pacilic, has been

Deeds of Daring
On Easter Sunday morning a
young lady of this city appeared at
one of our churches in a last year's
bonnet. This uniisal sight created
such a tremendous sensation among
the congregation that neither the
men nor the women thought of inspecting the new millinery on display, thus estopping all discussion
during the following week as to the
merit and price of each headpiece,
and causing a paucity of conversational topics in social'circles The
feeling of the congregation toward
should be apparent even to a person
of dull imagination. It is understood that the young woman will be
rewarded for her temerity by being
recommended as a candidate for the
Carnegie medal.
A new racing outfit arrived in the
city Wednesday iiioriiing.and all the
speedy horses in the valley took to
the alleyways and sidehills. It was
a team of reel oxen, and the owner
had journeyed all the way from Missouri to lie in readiness forthe 24th
of May. when he intends to run his
team against the swiftest automobile
in the city for a purse of $1000. If
the oxen win the race, the owner of
the animals will probably be
knighted.
Yesterday morning the first straw
hut of the season appeared on our
streets. The mun wearing it was
subjected to all the old stereotyped
insults, accompanied by numerous
missiles that caused a great deal of
discomfort. It is understood that
the mun will huve no competitor for
the 1909 Noble prize.
Charles Haverty, who has been
employed in the electrical department at tbe Granby smelter for a
number of years, bud a miraculous
escape from instant death on Wed-
nesdey last. While at work in a
pole near the West Kootenay Power
company's substation he accidental
touched a high tension wire of
20,000 voltage, and he fell to the
ground. The contact of his body
With the wire wns but for an instant.
Had it been of longer duration the
accident would undoubtedly have
resulted fatally. As it wns, he escaped with a badly burned bund,
some minor burns on other purts of
the body, and a severe shock. His
fall to the ground was broken by
alighting on some telephone wires,
thus lessening his injury from this
cause.
He was at once removed to the
Cottage hospital, where Dr. Kingston gave him every medical treatment possible. At present his condition is gradually improving,
though he is still suffering from the
wounds.

Advice to Fruit Growers
Interviewed by a representative of
the B. C. Farmer it Fruit Grower,
Maxwell Smith gave the following
interesting interview, which will be
of interest to every fruit grower in
the province;
"My advice to the B. C. fruil
grower is (o immediately perform
the duties which he muy have neglected during the winter months,
namely; Spray his trees with lime
and sulphur solution or double
strength bordeoux mixture before
the huda become out; with young
trees less than five years old he
should prune carefully, with a view
to directing the future shape and
sryle of the tree. In this country
where the wood growth is so vigorous, spring pruning is practised too
extensively on bearing trees; better
results will be obtained and more
fruit spurs produced by pruning in
June or curly part of July.
"Immediately after the blossoms
fall he should spray with single
strength bordeaux mixture, or one of
the lime sulphur preparations specially designed for summer spraying.
He must bear in mind, however,
that these latter preparations are yet
in their experimental stages, and he
must proceed carefully in the use of
them after foliage.
"Again he should see that his orchard is lightly plowed early in the
spring and the harrows kept going
every week during the growing season in order to conserve the moisture
already in the ground for the development of the fruit crop. Over the
province surface cultivation should
be discontinued when the fruit begins to ripen, and in the irrigated
districts no water should b.> applied
after that lime. As soon as the
young fruit is formed systematio
thinning of the crop should be proceeded with. Not more than one
specimen on a twig should be lelt of
pears or apples and no two specimens should touch each cither.
Plums, prunes, peaches and apricots
should be thinned so as to leave
them at least one inch apart. The
result will be all the crop tbe tree is
alile to hear and much more perfect
and uniform specimens, and consequently hetter prices realized than
if the thinning is neglected, It is a
huge mistake to leave the thinning
operations until the specimens are
large enough to send to market.
"Young trees should not he stib-

"In fertilizing, economy may be
exercised by applying the fertilizer
to the ground two or three feet away
from the trunk and about two feet
heyong the extremities of the roots
as the tree absorbs its nourishment
from the extremities of the roots but
cultivation should be kept up over
the entire surface of thc grsnnd.
"In districts where natural rainfall prevails and the trees have a
tendency to continue growing too
late in tho season, a cover crop
should be sown of vetches, rye,
clover, or some other nitrogen-
gathering plant so ns to take up the
moisture and permit theyoung wood

Sufficient for the right hand is the
ornament of being right.
Such us deal hard with the weak
will suffer from the extortion of the
strong.
It is not every hand in which there
i.s strength that can wrench the hand
of a weak man.
Strive, O wise man, to make the
wicked good, for the good are of themselves great and fortunate.
Bring not affliction upon the hearts
of the feeble, lest thou mayest fall
under the lash of the strong.
God preserve us! if man knew what
is hidden, none could be safe from the
animadversion of his neighbor.
Gold is got from the mine by digging into the earth; and from the
grasp of the miser by taking away his
life.
O God, have compassion on the
wicked, for to the good thou hast been
abundantly kind, inasmuch as thou
hast made them virtuous.
A wise man, where he meets with
opposition labors to get through it,
and where he rinds quiet he drops his
anchor, for there safety is on one side,
and here enjoyment iu the middle
of it.
The gamester wants three sixes, but
he tin ows only three aces. The pasture meadow is a thousand times
richer than the common, but the
horse has not the tether at his command.
Misers spend not, bnt watch with
solicitude; expectation, they say, is
preferable to waste. Next day observe, to the joy of their enemies, the
gold remains, and they are dead without the enjoyment of that hope.

Strong Healthy Women
If ■ woman is strong .and healthy in a womanly way, motherhood means to her but little suffering. The trouble lie*
in the fact that the many women suffer from weakness and
disease of the distinctly feminine organism and are unfitted
ior motherhood.   This can be remedied.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Cures the weaknesses and disorders of women.
It acts directly on the delicate and important
organs concerned in motherhood, making them
healthy,   strong*   vigorous*   virile   and   clastic.
"Favorite Prescription" banishes the indispositions of the
period of expectancy and makes baby's advent easy and
almost painless.   It  quickens  and vitalizes the  feminine
organs, and insures a healthy and robust  baby.   Thousands  of women have
testified to its marvelous merits.
It Makes Weak Women Strong.     It Makes Sick Women Well.
