Interests of Grand ForkB
Tranfer Coinpany
Late Proprietors Will Engage
in Similar Business at
the Coast
On Saturday last John W. and
George Rutherford sold their business, known as the GrandForks
Transfer coinpany, to Edward Clay
ton and W. J. Mclntyre. Tbe deal
includes the C.P.R. express agency,
local bus lines, draying outfit, stock
and a coal and wood business. The
consideration has not been made
public, but it was undoubtedly a
respectable sum, as the business is
in a prosperous codition. Mr. Clayton recently sold a lot in Saskatoon
for $10,000.
The Rutherford br ithers are pioneers of the city. Tbey l__»ve been
progressive and energetic business
men, and in all matters affecting the
swarming with fiat)—just small onei,
from six to ten inches long. The
town is very level, and the streets all
cement and lined with palm trees of a
number of different varieties aiid
other trees of whioh I do nut know
the names; and once in a while an
orange tree mixed in, just loaded
with ripe oranges. There are no
fences, and the houses all set back
from the street, with a lawn all
around, and geraniums and roses all
in bloom everywhere, just about as
common   as Jim   Hill   mustard   is
lund Grand Forks in July. But
people 'soon grow tired of all this
grantleur, and wish to aee the old
original woods onoa more.
'-Ws met no oue at San Francisco
that we ever saw hefore. 'Frisco is a
very big, busy and dirty place. We
were there New Year's eve, and the
streets were crowddad with people
from 8 o'clock to after 12, ringing ten
thousand cow bells and all kinds of
instruments for making a noiie, and
by 12 the streets were covered three
inches deep with confetti, lt sur
passed anything we ever-, saw. One
not used to it would think they were
allorasy."

McKinnon, a daughter.

The City Council
The opening of the new city parliament on Monday was, according
to the reports of persons who are
pecuniarily interested in saying bo,
the most brilliant Bocial function
seen in the city up to date. Some
dii.Bat.8f action was expressed because
seats bad not been reserved for ladies. With tbe exception of Aid.
Morrison, all the members were
present.
The following standing committees were appointed, the first-named
member of each to act as chairman:
Board of Works—Sheads, Miller
and Henniger.
Finance — Miller, Downey and
Davis.
Water and Light -Downey.Sheads
and Henniger.
Health and Relief—Davis, Morrison and Henniger.
Cemetery—Morrison, Davis and
Sheads.
Geo. Gowland was present at the
meeting, and said he was in attendance by request to hear the city
clerk and Mr. Mcllwaine give further explanations in connection with
the caie of the real estate on Second
street. Mr. Mcllwaine was nol
present, however, sllhough the
mayor said he had" written him asking to attend, and the matter was
postponed until the next meeting.
The transaction will probably be allowed to expire to lbe tune of slow
music.
Most of the lime of lbe meeting
was taken up by the mayor and the
city auditor in handing themselves
bouquets.
Aid. Sheads moved, seconded by
Aid. Davis, that lhe present auditor be retained in office, but after
considerable discussion action was
postponed until the meeling. lt is
natural that these aldermen, should
feel solicitous concerning the retention in olliee of Mr. Campbell. By
deftly juggling thc nomination
papers, Mr. Campbell was primarily
responsible for these gentlemen being elected by acclamation.
The monthly meeting of the local
Sunday School association was
held in the Presbyterian church last
Tuesday evening. Rev. Y. H. McLean, B.A, special field secretary
for Sunday school work of tbe
Presbyterian church, was present,
and delivered an interesting address.

I ■ XIQ
John Douglas and bis wife, Maria,
were not blessed with children. Tbey
fctermlned to adopt a boy and after
baring come to tbe resolution conferred as to tbe most convenient ago
tbe little fellow sbould be.
"I think," said Jolm, "you'll Dod tbat
a babj will be a good deal of car*.
There's a colic period, and tho child
would bare to be brought up on some
kind of artificial baby food, and there's
only a certain proportion of babied

your boy dies you've bad all your

"tt seems to me," replied Maria,
"that unless we begin at tbe beginning and progress wllb tbe child we
won't be used to blm wben be reaches
tbat age. He'll be ready tor the
whooping cough and tbe measles and
such diseases, and we won't ba ready
for bim to bare tbem."
Tbe mutter was discussed between
them for a long while, Maria holding
to the baby plan. John desiring to
make tbe short cut. Maria yielded
since she saw no way of getting a
child at all unless sbe did, for John
had seen comic pictures of men walking the toot at midnight wltb colicky
babies and did not propose to submit
to any sucb strain.

and asked for a ilx-year-old boy. The
matron, wbo had brought np a family,

John preferred a bright-boy wltb an

John was a hard working man and
gradually accumulated a little fortune,
on the Income of which he and Maria
could live wben they came to old age.
One day John bad trouble wltb a safety deposit company where be kept bis
securities and took tbem borne with
blm, 1 (tending to rent another box the
next day. Ht also drew bis account

that tht samt night tbt house waa
robbed, Tito, tbo securities and the
money disappearing at the aame time.
This, ot courte, was a terrible blow
to tbe couple. In one thing they were
disappointed. They bad always supposed tbat Tito Would warn them
against burglars. Instead of that be
bad been captured. But a strange
smell Indicated that the dog had been
put to sleep by the robbers before looting tbe bouse and carried away with
the booty.
Maria endeavored to comfort ber
husband as well aa she could, though
the sops ahe gave blm were very thin.
'Well, dear," she said, "we have no
ont but ourselves to prorlde for. and
we don't need mucb. If we bad a

have something to worry about. If
we only bad Tito back 1 would willingly give np tbe securities and tba

Of course be reported the matter to

uld that Tito bad disappeared the
sergeant aaid that It waa possible tht

He might he Identified by Tito In ease
tht latter was recovered. He took
John's address and promised to notify
him If any clew were discovered, but
since nothing had been left behind by
which to track blm the chances of recovering tht property were alight
John was very mucb discouraged.
"If tbey hadn't got ahead of the dog."
he tald, "wt would hart been alarmed
by bla bark."
"Ob, a burglar never thinks of entering a houst where tbere Is a dog," aaid
the sergeant "without flrst eliminating tbe beast"
Then be took down a minute description of Tito.

The Carat.
The number ot persons Interested
ln the measure of weight called the
carat Is generally limited by vho number who are able, or are disposed to
posseBs precious stones of great
value. Of course, lt is of thc utmost
Importance to jewellers, and, inasmuch' as slight differences have hitherto existed ln the estimation of this
delicate weight, an effort Is making,
particularly under the initiative of
Belgium, to bring about the adoptiou
of An international standard carat.
The weight proposed is 200 milligrams. It haa been customary In
English-speaking countries to reckon
a carat as equal to 3.2 grains. Thc
uncertainty ot tke original measure
Is Indicated by the derivation of the
word from the Greek word for the
fruit of .the caron.

some of the must important items in
the financial utatemuuc to the mem

chance is there uf the few ordinary

Information Wanted
About twenty years age a gentleman from New York waa hunting
witb Indians in British Columbia.
They took him to a deer lick wbich
was well known by them, and he
was induced to take a sample of the
deposit back to New York with him.
It was analyzed and found to contain a large quantity of salt, which
the Indians thought was medicine.
The' New York gentleman has been
dead some years, and tbe locality is
unknown. The deposit is a brown
earthy material, and will no doubt
be found on a sidehill wbere it is
protected by a covering of clay or
sandstone. As the deposit is highly
soluble in water, it is probably in
the dry belt of British Columbia.
An easy test would be to weigh a
pound of earth and put in water.
Tba water should take up the salt in
the earth jind leave a residue equal
to one-quarter of tha original sample Any information wbich would
lead to the discovery of this deposit
will be rewarded by the payment of
the sum of $500 by Charlet F. Law,

Columbia, B.C., Feb. 16, 1912.
It is now generally admitted that
this province is to be plunged into the
tnrmoil of an election this spring.
The only excuse that can be advanced
for this action is, that the McBride
government considers it an opportune
time to secure a new lease of life. It
is rumored that a railway policy will
lie submitted to the electorate. But
why does not the government carry
out the railway policy endorsed by
the people at the last ptovincial election 1 -At piesent that policy is sleeping soundly between Midway and

Ihe beRt picture ever offered newspaper readers.    It is entitled "Home
Attain" ami describes a ((inching but joyful incident between two friends
v who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his bpnuty and gentleness, winneis
of mnny prize* at dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
bus been slolcli, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns bume on n snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in hi» struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark liri'ngs his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries o( joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again." and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting bis head against her breaBt wilh a little
whine, which in his don languoKe-means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick'gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
• )iirl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around tho shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go.to form a picture- that will win a favored place
on the walls of any Tiome..

Protection of Forests
An Interview with an engineer given recently In a western paper to the
effect that there Is abundant timber
on tlio line of the Hudson Bay Railway is an Illustration of the mlsap-
rehenslon ln regard to the matter that
exists In the public mind. Because
there are large areas of land ln the
north on which there Is timber of
some kind, the conclusion Is reachod
that lt Is all of present value and that
tho country has an unlimited supply.
As a matter of fact a careful Inspection of the timber along the line of
the Hudson Bay Railway made In the
years 1910 and 1011, by the Forestry
Branch of the Department of the Interior, shows that ther Is not enough
mature timber along th_t line of that
railway to build the roafl. There are
no prairie districts of any extent along
the route, thero are trees everywhere,
but owing to repeated fires the forest
Is, except on the nearest fraction of
the area, too small for commercial purposes and unlesB lt can be protected from fire until lt reaches maturity, will never be of any use to the
country. Explorations In otlier parts
of the northern forested districts tell
the same tale. Everywhere fire has
worked havoc, and the' forest Is a
mere wreck of what It might have
been if fires could be prevented. And
unless adequate measures are taken
now to protect young and Immature
forests ■ which . form ilia, ma.'^r part
of tho stand, tho outlook for the future Is none too good. v
If the northern forests are to continue to be a permanent source of
wealth to the country, It Is absolutely
necessary that he fire ranging system should be extended and that proper methods of management of the
forest should be apnlled. and public
education to the value of the forest
Is even more necessary.
Tn Sweden, which lias large extents
of northern forest, practically nnln-
habtted, Blmllar to those In northern
Canada, has about eliminated the fire
danger In such districts mainly by educating her people to the value ot the
forests. .
It Is a Liver Pill.—Many ot the ailments which man has to contend with
havo their origin In a disordered liver, which Is a delicate organ, peculiarly susceptible to the disturbances
that come from Irregular habits, or
lack of caro In eating and drinking.
This accounts for the great many liver
regulators that Is pressed On the attention of the sufferers. Of these
there Is none superior to Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills. Their operation
though gentle, Is effective, and the
most delicate can use tbem.

LUMBER WASTE FOR PULPWOOD
Practical   Eoonomy   and   Utilization
of Wood Waste It Urged by
Forestry Department
For the purpose of manufacturing
the four hundred, and seventy-five
thousand tonB of wood pulp produced
In Canada in 1910 nothing was used
except logs of various species, which
as our timber supply decreases are
becoming valuable for lumber and
other uses. No slabs or other sawmill waste was reported as being converted Into wood pulp, by neglecting
which practice, Canada Is losing greatly. During 1909 In the United States
six per cent, of the total pulpwood consumption was from slabs and mill
trimmings.* If economy had been
practiced to the same extent in Canada
during the year 1910, as much pulp
might have been produced as from
thirty-six thousand cords of wood and
not one pulp' log need have been cut.
This would have made twenty per
cent, more pulp tban Nova Scotia produced in 1910.
Looking at the subject from another view point the gain might have
been much greater. Over one-halt of
the five billion feet of lumber cut ln
1910 passed through mills at centres
of large population where the Slab
waste ot one-half cord to every thousand feet of lumber might have'been
saved from the incinerators. One
cord of pulpwood will produce at least
one-half ton of pulp, bo that one and
a quarter million cords of slabs obtained would have produced at the
lowest estimate six, hundred and
twenty-five thousand tons of pulp produced ln Canada In' 1910. The sooner
such practical economy and utilization of wood waste commences the
longer will Canada have an adequate
supply of pulpwood.
For Asthma and Catarrh.—It Is one
of the chief recommendations of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectrlc Oil that It can be
used internally with as much success
as lt can outwardly. Sufferers from
"■thira and catarrh will find that the
Oil when used according to directions
will give Immediate relief. Many sufferers from these aliments have found
relief in tho Oil and have sent testimonials.

ST. MARTIN'S
SUMMER
And lilt, femanoe It Warmed
InH Happy Realization.
By VIRGINIA  L. WENTZ.
It was t'.at moat gracious seasou of
■tl th* year ' perhaps-lit. Martin's
»umuier-»wbeti ibe spirit of ripeness
wblcb seems to bave Bed once more
holds tbe land wltb iti Intoxicating
breath. Tbe fields were studded wltb
tiny Michaelmas daisies, and tbe
hedgerows were brilliant with earl;
(oldenrod, but somehow you fancied
you studied tbe scent of tha roses and
solgno'uette aa well.
' Tbere was quite a group of people
out on the small hotel veranda, and
most of tbem were gossiping. Spinning up Ibe poplar shaded country
road was a smart little trip. Across,
tbe tennis courts tbe occupants were
plainly visible. Tbey were James
Walsh and Mrs. John Burgess.
"I say, girls." cried one of tbe group
en the veranda. "It's a crying shame
te |et lhat elddrly person cut ns out
j wltb the richest man we have up bere
-crying sbame, that's wbat It Is! And
I don't tblnk any of us bu an atom
ef *grlt' or 'go' or we'd take tbtt wind
cut of Mrs. Burgess' sails!"
. "Wby. sbe must be all of a hundred!" exclaimed another.
"They say that Mr. Walsh knew her
years ago. Wonder where he picked
ber up.   In the ark. 1 guess."
"Oh. my dear, long before thot."
drawled another mockingly. "Long
before Nosh's time women bsd ceased
to do tbelr hair In tbat absurd fashion."
Then the quiet girl with the embroidery on her lap spoke softly:
"She has a lot of bair anyhow, and
It's beautiful, and tbe way she dresses
It suits her features. She reminds me
of Albert Durers 'Madonna.* "
"Who's tbat, Miss Tyson J" interrupted a young fellow In tennis flannels, suddenly appearing In tbe doorway. '• Wbo'i like Durer's 'Madonna ?'"
"We were speaking of Mn. Burgess,"
■niwered Miss Tyson without even
looking up from ber embroidery.
"•Madonna?* I'olderol!" cried tbe
ether girls In concert. "She's a plain,
quiet poke of a woman nnd a design-
log one it tbit She'* eucouragtug
him fearfully." '
"Toil see, Min Tyson." observed
Billy, tbe young chap In flannels, "we
get only one or two big matrimonial
catches a season op here. It's a waste
ef time nowadays to listen to tbe Im-
pecuolous ardors of early youth. Consequently"—
Billy's words were ambiguous
enough, but tbe comprehensive little
■weep wblcb be made with bis glmce
and sun browned band. Including veranda, girls and all, was Inimitably
troll. Miss Tyson's gray eyes laughed
appreciatively.
They were such nlee understanding
tny eyes, thought Billy. 'Twas a
■hame thnt embroidery should engross
io mucb of tbelr attention. Even now
ihe ihowed signs ot taking It up again,
■nd to avoid sucb a catastrophe Billy
proposed a game of teunla.
".ill right," said Miss Tyson* cheerfully, folding tbe bit ot linen about the
. tiny hoop n,od stowing It away la a
"titty bag.'

The fancied likeness between Mri.
John Burgess ind the "Madonna" of
Durer wai not without some basis.
There was. Indeed, a similarity lo tbe
weary features, more Interesting thno
beautiful, and In tbe dolorous, somewhat constrained grace of tbe stately
-figure.
Mrs. Burgess wis ■ womao of forty-
Sre. Ber manner, her aspect, was that
•f one wbo bad long since ceased
wishing to attract Id point ol fart
the wish bad never been pronounced.
■Ince ber husband's death, wblcb bad
occurred ten yean previously, sbe bnd
■ever won a color. It I* to be supposed that Mr. Burgess bad loved per.
Bis bad been ber Hrst aod only offer
*f marriage, but In ber girlhood ber

Most people wbo knew Mrs. John
Burgess thought of ber ss tbe mot ber
ot ber children. She bsd.a son In tbe
west wbo wis making great ventures
In cattle and bursee, and she bad •
married daughter In Parle wbo waa
writing her constantly of ber social trl
nmpha and prosperity. Ves. ber eblldrao were fall ot tbelr owo plans and

Burgess bad been a bit lb; prised to
tnd herself feeling a little lonely end

Then. Just at lbe correct psychological moment, be came—the man to

■er Instead.   , ...
Jama Walsh km a middle,ant,
t^tlj*. rich mao ind ■widower.   B*
naa wart-tea soiuewnat eany iu his career a noted beauty. A fortnight of
wedlock had convinced him that be
and-his bride bod not a single taste
,ln common.- but, being a businesslike
mnn, on his return from his tour de
noee he'd sized up the matter lo this
practical fashion:
" Twas tbe pink chiffon dress at tb*
Van Duyers' ball wblcb wa* responsible. Only wby wasn't It"— But tb*
"wby wasnt It" In tbls case badn't
worn a pink chiffon dress, nor had abs
been at tbe Van Doyen' ball.
Mr. Walsh bad been ■ widower oow
for three year*, tut he •till sighed
wltb • half abashed sens* ot relief.
".\u more matrimonial veorures for
tne." be'd say to himself, wltb a laugb,
although he bnd reason to believe that
be could lay successful siege to several
feminine beans; tbat be wa* still quit*
capable of victory.
He had been spending. August alona
up lu tbe mountains, and be bad enjoyed a mouth of fishing, tramping nnd
dreaming to bis heart's content. On
hts way home he'd stop for a week or'
two at a certalu little botel repotted to
bare good cuisine and rest ■ strained
'«»«_„*  tflufnrq .rolri? back to bUslnetw, .
tiianclng casually over the botel register, he saw tbe name ot Mrs. .lohn
Burgess. There arose ln the man's
breast.* curious sensation, but be pulled himself together.
"Bow absurd!" he upbraided himself
as be walked away from tbe desk. "As
If there were not hundreds of John
Burgesses. Wby. 1 mlgbt even have
coaxed myself Into believing that 1 remembered her Jinndwiitlng."
An bour, or so later, however, be
met her ou the lawn. Tbelr eyes unexpectedly encou-    "I'd one another.
"Can It he?" -u he, with boyish
incredulity.   Sbe extended ber band.
"1 think It can." she auswered. with
that little half smile ou the corner of
ber pure lip which he remembered so
well.
Mra. Burgess bad escaped the half
kittenish challenge of tbe middle aged
woman who will not abjure conquest
She did not more to tbe shade of the
tree nor even open ber parasol. -She
stayed precisely wbere sbe wus. with
a streak ot harshly revealing sunlight
playing havoc witb sucb loveliness as
time bad left to her.- After awhile
tbe warmth of tbe sun or some otber
warmth she knew not of brought Into
ber pale cheeks that glow which
James Walsh's first roses bad brought,
ob, so many yeara ago.
That night time aod again Mr. Walsh

PRODIGAL SONS.
_n Francs ths State Guards Thsm With
Paternal Care.
The legal system of France contains
t delicate provision for tbe guardian-
•hip of prodigal sons, and the name of
Claude Casimlr-I'erler, son of a one
time president of the republic, bss just
been added to tbe list of those over
whom the government exercise* lt* paternal care.
Tbere is no direct reflection upon ths
beneflelsr.es of this excellent system,
which mlgbt be Imported Into America
duty free. It I* sufficient to show that
tbe Individual is either weakmlnded
or prodigal, and in ihe cl.jfes ot glided
youth It Is not a disgrace to be prodigal—Indeed, rather tbe reverse. Upon
proper application Ihe authorities ap-
polut a consell Judical re, wbo hi empowered to.supervise all expenditure
and generally to act ln lorn parentis.
If tbere are no relatives to Invoke the
law the state attorney may do so on
his own Initiative, and In all cases the
"selection of tbe consell Judlcnlra Is a
matter of amicable arrangement. If
the prodigal has a family, then a family council Is .called and participates lo
the deliberations of the tribunal.
The guardian, once appointed, remains ou duty until sufficient evidence
bas been furnished thnt bis ward bas
reformed himself, and this I* not always sn easy matter since tbe Mar-

The machinist mumbled thst be had

parts of vinegar, with salt and pepper
to taste, stir them luto tbe meat and
let lt stand tor a couple of hours; drain
off any of the marinade which bas not
been absorbed before combining ths
meat with the otber parte of the salad.
Use only enough marinade to season

Smelter at Hidden Creek
Official announcement of tbe intention of the Granby Consolidated
to begin the erection of a smelter in
connection wilh its Hidden Creek
properties on Observatory inlet, was
made at Vancouver last Friday by
Mr. Sylvester, acting eeneral manager, who had just returned from a
trip to the north.
"Constructioa of the smelter will
be started early in the spring," said
Mr. Sylvester. "A site on tidewater
has already been selected and
cleared. The reduction works will
take a year to build and will have
an initial treatment capacity of 20U0
tons d tily, with provision for enlargement at a later date.
'•This proposition, apart from the
development and equipment of the
mine, will involve an expenditure
of fiom $1,000,000 to $1,250,000.
Surface work has heen abandoned
for the winter months, but underground development is being pushed
There is a large ore tonnage in sight
and reserves will he largely increased
long before the smelter ia finished.
Nothing has yet been decided about
the purchase of additional mines,
but our consulting engineer, Mr.
Williams, has visited and examined
. the principal lode properties in the
Portland Canal, souihern Yukon
and southeastern Alaska. The smelter will also be prepared to treat
custom ore."
Baldness is Too Generally
Considered a Sign of
Advanced Age
A balnhwded person does not have
an equal chance with one blessed with
a healthy head of hair, because baldness it too generally accepted at an
indication of age. Many large corporation! have established an age limit,
and refuse to take men over 35 yeart
of age at new etrployefcs.
Probably 65 per" cent, nf bald-
headed people may regain a good head
of healthy hair if they will follow our
advice and accept our offer. We have
a remedy that we positively guarantee
to grow hair on any head unlets the
roots of the hair are entirely dead,
their follicles cloned, and the scalp
has become glazed and shiny. We
want people to try this remedy at our
risk, with the distinct understanding
that unions it dues exactly what we
olaim it will, and gives satisfaction iu
every respect, wp shall make no charge
for the remedy used during the trial.
We. know exactly what we are talking about, and with this offer back nf
our statements, no one should scoff,
doubt our word, or hesitate to put our
remedy to an actual test.
VVe want every one in Graud Forks
who is suffering from any scalp or hair
trouble, dandruff, falling hair, or
baldness to try our Rexall "93" Hair
Tonic. We want them to use it
regularly—say until three bottles have
been uied—and if it does not eradicate dandruff, cleanse and refresh the
tcalp, tighten the hair in its roots, and
grow new hair, we will return every
cent paid us fur the remedy for the
mere asking. There is no formality
expected, aud we exact no obligation
from the user whatever.
We are established right, here in
Grand Forks, and make this offer
with a full understanding that our
business success entirely depends upon
the tort of treatment we accord our
customers, and we would not dare
