Requested to Protect
City's Bridges
City Assesment Boll   Returnable   to Council
April 5th
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chambers on Monday evening, Mayor Fripp and Aid. Davis,
Lequime, Manly, McCallum and
Sheads being present.
A letter was read from Principal
May, of the public school, stating
that the item published in The Sun
last week to the effect that a case of
strachoma had been contracted by
one of the pupils from using the
towels in the school building, whs
erroneous. Mr. May contended that
tbe disease had been contracted out
side the Bchool. He also urged that
the medical officer be requested to
examine all the pupils.
J. P. McLeod, of Greenwood, requested a copy of the regulations of
the license commissioners. Referred
to the board of license commissioners.
The Yale-Columbia Lumber company asked for permission to remove the pier from the site ot the
old First street bridge. The council
granted the request provided the
company would build and maintain
a footbridge at this point.
The cjty solicitor wub instructed
to notify the Yale-Columbia Lumber company to properly protect the
city's bridges in the Kettle Kiver
against their log drives, and to inform them that the eity will hold
them responsible for all damages
done to the structures.
The city solicitor was instructed
to attend the meeting of the railway
commission in Nelson in person.
The water and light commiitie win
authorized to erect a new pole line
to the West Kootenay company's
substation. The committee was also
authorized to purchase 25 more
metres.
The council decided to pay for
the phone in the city electrician's
house.
The clerk was instructed to write
to City Engineer Reid and ascertain
when he intends to return to tho
cisy.
The board of works was instructed
to build a sidewalk on Sixth Jstreet,
between Rev. Mr. Steele's house and
Winnipeg evenue.-
The city assessor was instructed to
make the assessment and return tho
assessment roll April 5th.
not only poisonous, but extremely
corrosive. It would certainly require
even more care and skill in the handling than if the acids alone wete used.
I should therefore strongly advise
against your trying this plan.
Saltpetre is frequently advocated
for extracting stumps, and as compared with the method you quote is
certainly both cheaper and safer. The
plan is to bore a hole in the stump
some six or eight inches in length and
one inch in diameter. This is filled
ith saltpetre and plugged. The size
of the hole and the uinount of saltpetre used are dependent somewhat on
the magnitude of the stump. The
sap that is still iu the wood is supposed to dissolve the saltpetre, the solution gradually penetrating to all
parts of the stump, rendering it readily combustible. This impregnation
may take a year or more, according to
those who have had experience with
this plan. At the end of this period,
Bay one or two years, coal oil is poured
into the hole and lighted. If the
wood is sufficiently dry and contains
enough saltpetre, the stump will
smoulder away, leaving nothing but
ashes.
Enquiry has made it clear that this
method seldom proves perfectly satisfactory; the burning is usually incomplete, necessitating a good deal of subsequent work. It would seem from
those who have had most experience in clearing land that for cheapness and despatch dynamite is the
best agent for stump extraction, and
that next to dynamite, a mechanical
stump puller is to be advised.
Perhaps it might be advisable to
give this letter publicity in the same
medium that contained the method
you quote.
Frank T. Shutt,
Chemist.
[Note—In this portion of the Dominion people prefer the black stumping powder to  dynamite for clearing
land. —Ki). Sun.]

Bell at Its Crossing Near
the River
At the league hockey match in
Phoenix lust Friday night Grand
Forks defeated Phoenix by 9 goals
to 2. Phoenix scored the lirst goal,
but the next three went to the boys
from this city, and at half time the
score was 3-2 in favor of Grand
Forks. In the second half Grnnd
Forks scored six more goals, while
Phoenix was unable to increase its
score. The playing throughout the
game was all done in Phoenix's territory, as the puck did not reach
the vicinity of Grand Forks' goal
more than three or four times during the evening. The Grand Forks
played aggressively, and did better
combination Work than they have
done heretofore this season.
While all the players did exceptionally well, Messrs. Baker and Long-
hurst were in extra fine form, the
former being credited with five
goals. Mr. Jost also played a good
game. The Phoenix club appeared to
he entirely outclassed on this occasion, and the visitors had it all their
own way during the last half of the
game.
An excur_on party consisting of
three coach loads accompanied the
players to Phoenix by a special train.
The train left the Kettle Valley line
depot at about 7 p.m., and returned
to the city at 2 a.m.
By winning this game Grnnd
Forks tied Phoenix in the Boundnry
championship series. It was decided
to piny off the tie by having two
more game, one in ench home town
of the two clubs, the tenm scoring
the highest number of goals in the
two'games to be declared the winner
of the Boundnry cup.

One of our readers desired more authentic information on this subject.

G. W. Brookes, Esq., Grand Forks,
B. C.—Dear Sir: The mixture you
refer to would certainly possess a
very strong oxidizing action, but I
have never heard of it being used for
the extraction of stumps. My opinion
is that this mixture is altogether too
dangerous to use in   this way.

The Fink Smelter
Regarding the new Fink method
of smelting, an account of which
was published in the Sun a couple
of weeks ago, Mr. Samuel Newhouse
makes the fnllowingslntenient, which
hns been eagerly awaited by the
country:
"The Fink smelter primarily is
for the benefit ot the poor mine owner, the man who cannot afford to install an expensive old line smelting
plant, and whose property is too far
from the railroad foi steady shipments. If he is not able to purchase a plant for himself, we will in.
stall one for him. But lor the present I do not care to discuss our
plans. 1 will simply say that we
will place the Fink plants within
easy reach of every one, and the reason I backed the enterprise mainly
was the desire to come to the relief
of the mine owner who needed just
such a plant on his property.
"I was very well received back
East, the East knowing, ns it did,
ibat here wns something entirely
new a,id whose influence would le
very widespread. We arc going
riglit along with our smelting plans
at tiie Garfield plant, and with our
eastern end of the business as well.
I wish it to be Understood that it is
not our intention to attempt the destruction of any of tbe great smelting enterprises of the country. The
Fink plant will be more forthe mint
er who is siiuited as 1 have se-
iorlh." 	
Buys Electric Plant
The New Republic Company
announces that it lias taken over
the property, rights, contracts and
franchises of the Republic Light and
Power Coinpany and from this date
will fulfill the contract of the latter
Company with the city and with the
citizens who have been patuius of
the electric light system.
This company will be in the market to sell power for lighting nnd other purposes.   Improvements at the

installed as soon us the breaking of
winter opens the way. The indulgence of the patrons is asked pending the Installation of better light
producing facilities. It is the purpose to furnish power during the
day as well as at night and anyone
wishing power is asked to call at the

at tbe company's store room.
Tbe company will leave no stone

SATURDAY, MARCH 6,1909
While tliere appears to be no tangible prospects of securing either in the
immediate future, the impression ap-
penrs to be gaining strength here that
Urand Forks will secure a new provincial court house Oelore the federal
postoffice building is erected. There
appears to be a great deal of secrecy
about the postoffice, and it is difficult
to locate the right party on. whom to
unload the blame for the unwarrantable delay. The Sun was honest when
it advanced this issue in the late election as one of the reasons why the
electors should support the Liberal
candidate. If it was unwittingly
made a party to a campaign dodge
merely intended to mislead the people,
it has enough independence left to cut
loose from present party ties, even
after eight years' association with
the Liberals.
The Tory pi ess of the province has a
great deal to say these days about the
Conservative delegation from British
Columbia doing their duty in the fed-
eial In use. As far as The Sun can
di-cern, U|> to the present time our
members have been doing most of
their talking, and their most strenuous duty, at public dinners. This is
not exactly what the people sent them
to Ottawa for; but the session is young
yet, and they may muster enough
c .urage to tackle the "better terms"
and "white British Columbia" questions before the come home.

You can eat. anything your stomach
craves without fear of a case of indigestion or dyspepsia, or that your
food will ferment or sour on your
stomach if you will occasionally take
a little Diapepsin after eating.
Your meals will taste good and
anything you eat will he digested
nothing can ferment or turn into acid
or poison or stomach gas, which
causes belching, dizziness, a feeling of
fullness after eating, nausea, indigestion (like lump of lead in stomach),
biliousness, heartburn, water brash,
pain in stomach and intestfnes or
other symptoms.
Headuches from tho stomach are
absolutely unknown where this effective remedy is used. Diapepsin really
does all the work of a healthy stomach. It digests your meals when your
stomach can't. Each triangule will
ligest all the food you can eat and
leave nothing to ferment or sour.
Get a large 50 cent case of Pape's
Diapepsin from your druggist and
start taking today and by tomorrow
you will actually brag about your
health, strong stomach, for you then
can eat anything and everything you
want without the slightest discomfort
or misery, and that every  particle of
purity and gas that is in your stomach and intestines is going to be carried away without the use of laxatives
or any other assistance.

An Oiler Which Meets the Special Wants of All Classes ol Readers
The Western Canadian reading public is made up chiefly of these classes
Persons who have lived in the West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer overy special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it hns special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies the former resident of Eastern Canada with news of the
Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Grand Forks Sun provides
the local And Boundary news, which you cannot do without.
PERSIAN PHILOSOPHY
[FUOM TIIK (1UI.ISTAN OP SA'DI.]
Indigence and tranquility can never
go together.
Poverty has a gloomy aspect in tlrs
world and in the next.
The severity of the master is more
useful than the indulgence of the
father.
If a man bu expert in any art he
needs not tell it, for his own skill will
show it.
Whoever is ungrateful to his own
kindred cannot hope that fortune shall
befriend him.
No wonder if his spirits flag: the
nightingale is cooped up in the same
cage with the crov.
Genius without education is the
subject of our regret, and education
without genius is labor lost.
Though silver and gold ur,- extracted
from stone, it is not in every scone
that silver and gold is found.
Pride thyself on what virtue them
hast, and not on thy parentage; the
rose springs from a thorn-bush.
When the schoolmaster relaxes in
his disipline, the children will stop to
play at marbles in  the  market place.
Men of liberality have no command
of money, nor have the opulent and
worldly-minded a spirit of   liberality,
God preserve us from overwhelming
poverty, and from the company of
him whom he loves not, namely, the
infidel.
A prudent man, with an enlightened understanding, entrusts not affairs
of consequence to one of mean capacity.
A man of experience is best qualified to explore a field of battle, as
one of the learned is to expound a
point of law,
God will ask thee on the day of
judgment: what hast thou done iu this
life? but he will not inquire of thee:
whence didst thou derive  thy  origin!
Utter not a word till thou knowest
it is the mirror of what is correct; and
do not put a question where thou
knowest that the answer must be un
favorable.
Whoever doth employ an inexperienced person on ar. affair of importance, besides being brought to shame,
he will incur from the wise the impu
tatiou of a weak mind.
If the sons of Adam were as solicitous after Providence, or God, as they
are after their means of sustenance,
their places in paradise would surpass those of the angels.
A wise niiiu is, like a vase in a
druggist's shop, silent, but full of virtues; and the ignorant resembles the
drum of the warrior, being full of
noise and an empty babbler.
Uneasy must be the night slumbers
of him whose provisions for tomorrow
is not forthcoming; the ant is laying
by a store iu summer that she may enjoy an abundance in winter.
Upon the bondsman who is subservient to thy command, wreak not
thy rage und bouiidluss displeasure.
For it must bo disgraceful on the day
of reckoning to lind the slave at liberty and the master in bondage.
If the man of sense is coarsely
treated by the vulgar, let it net excite our wrath and indignation; if a
piece of worthless stone can bruise a
cup of gold, its worth is not increased,
nor that of the gold diminished.
There is no great difficulty in separating the soul from the body, but it
is not so easy to restore life to the
dead; prudence dictates patience in
giving tho arrow flight, for let it quit
the buw and it never can be recalled.
A man who hns got into an argument with an ignorant man can have
no hope of supporting his own dignity; and if au ignoramus, by his loquacity, gets the upper hand it snould
uot surprise us, for he is a stone and
can bruise a gem.

Avenue. Women s Secrets
There ii one man in the United States who hu perhaps heard
more women's secrets than any other man or woman in the
country. These secrets are not secrets of guilt or shame, but
the secrets of suffering, and they have been confided to Or. <JfJ
R. V. Pierce in the hope and expectation of advice and help.
That few oi these women have been disappointed in their expectations is proved by the fact that ninety-eight per cent, of
all women treated by Dr. Pierce have been absolutely end
altogether cured. Such a record would be remarkable if the
cases treated were numbered by hundreds only. But when
that record applies to the treatment ol more than half-a- million women, in a practice of over 40 years, it is phenomenal,
and entitles Dr. Pierce to the gratitude accorded him by women, aa the first of
specialists in the treatment of women's diseases.
Every sick woman may consult Dr. Pierce by letter, absolutely without
charge. All replies are mailed, sealed in perfectly plain envelopes, without
any printing or advertising whatever, upon them. Write without fear as without fee, to World's Dispensary Medical Association, Dr. R. V. Pierce, Prest.,

5000 Facts About Canada
The public will welcome the 1909
revised edition of this valuable booklet, which has been happily described as a tabloid encyclopedia of
Canada. It is unique and clever
in its arrangement as worked out by
its compiler, Mr. Frank Yeigh, of
Toronto, the well known writer and
lecturer. Thirty thousand copies
have already been sold. The resources, wealth and business of the
country are given in a concrete form
—a fact in a sentence. Mr. Hamnr
Greenwood, M.P. for York, Eng.,
says: "It is an eye-opener to even a
keen Canadian like myself." A

brilliant future for the young Irish
actor-singer. Mr. Murphy played
Dan O'Hara for thirty-five consecutive years, and sees a most worthy
successor in the young baritone.
Mr. Swift's songs will, of course, be
a feature of the Kerry Gow, and
among the selections will be "Nora
Acushla," "Molly Bawn," "An
American Toast." The scenic effects
and costumes will be correct to the
country and time, and, in short,
nothing has been left -undone to
make the production a notable one.

Asks Us to Print
To relieve the worst form of rheu-
mntism, take a teaspoonful of the
following mixture after each meal
and at bedstime:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon.onelnunee;
Compound SyrupSarsaparilla, three
ounces.
These harmless ingredients can be
obtained from our home druggists,
and are easily mixed by shaking
them well in a bottle. Relief is generally felt from the first few doses.
This prescription forces the clogged
up, inactive kidneys to filter and
strain from the blood the poisonous
waste matter and uric acid, which
causes rheumatism.
As rheumatism is not only the
most painful and torturous disease,
but dangerous to life, this simple
recipe will no doubt be greatly valued by many sufferers here at home,
who should at once prepare the mixture to get this relief.
• It is said that a person who would
take this prescription regularly, a
dose or two daily, or even a few
times a week, would never have serious kidney or urinary disorders or
rheumatism.
Cut this out aud preserve it. Good
rheumatism prescriptions which
really relieve are scarce, indeed, and
when you need it, you want it
badly.
