$1.00 PER YEAR
Granby Company Oan Easily
Pay for Development
Out of Earnings
Granby directors will probably
take up andd iapoie of the financing
question when tbey meet next
month, says Geo, L. Walker in the
Boston Commercial. As there is
some confusion concerning this matter in tbe minds of a few stockholders, I will explain it briefly.
Less than (1,300,000 will be required to complete the development
and equipment work at Hidden
Oreek and put that property on a
producing basis. As Granby bas
about 1800,000 of cash and quick
assets and is earning from (100,000
to $140,1,00 a month, it can readily
meet this expense without calling on
tbe stockholders for assistance.
The only point for consideration
is whether the stockholders are willing to forego dividends for another
year. If bonds were issued and
sold to raise the needed money, dividend payments could be resumed
immediately at tbe rate of 15 or fl a
share annually. Some stockholders
are in favor of such a course, but
others think it best to pay for the
new property's equipment, etc.,
from earnings, and thus avoid any
increase in capitalization, it seems
to me tbat tbe Utter couse would be
. the better one to follow.
Granby is not being conducted as
a miniug company simply, in tbe
older acceptance of the term. It is
rather a smelting and mining enterprise. From $50,000 to $160,000
annually is expended by the company on exploration work witbin a
200-mile radius of its smelter. If a
promising property is found which
can be had on favorable terms it is
eptioned and diamond-drilled or
other exploratory work done. In tbe
carrying out of this policy tbe company may purchase other raining
property at almost any time, and it
will make Granby a permanent business enterprise, in contradistinction
to one tbat is digging out and gradually exhausting a single body of ore.
Although tbe Hidden Creek property is located 000 or 700 'niles
north of Vancouver, it is on tbe
coast, and the climate tbere is not as
severe as one would naturally suppose. Tbe winters are not nearly as
cold as tbey ure at Pboenix and
Grand Forks, where Granby's operating smelters and mines are located.
An average of about $107,000
monthly bas been earned by the
company for some time past on ores
from its Phoenix mines, which yield
and smelter, and only half as much
coke will be required to smelt a
given tonnage of Hidden Creek ore.
The freight charge on a ton of bullion from Grand Forks to the refinery in New Jersey is $14, and
from Hidden Creek only $12. It is
figured, therefore, tbat Hidden
Creek copper output will not cost
more than 8 to 8J cents a pound.
There is a good reason to eXpect
tbat Granby will gradually build up
a very large and profitable custom
smelting business at Hidden Creek.
The managements of .several mina?
in the vicinity have approached
Granby officials on this matter already. Granby haB made a conspicuous success in this department, its
expense per ton of ore smelted at
Grand Forks being approximately
the lowest maintained anywhere in
the world.
Undoubtedly millions of tons
more will be developed in its prop-
eaty in Phoenix; but these is no occasion for extensive exploratory
work tbere at present, tbere being a
seven or eight year ore supply
blocked out now. Viewed from
every standpoint, therefore, Granby
is in a very strong position and its
future outlook is most promising,
It is not surprising that its stock is
advancing steadily. I figure that
it is worth at least twice its present

Doubling of the wheat crop of
Canada and the United States is the
possibility raised by scientific discoveries made by Prof. Aaron
Aaronsohn, of Jerusalem, according
to an announcement made this
week at the University of  Chicago.
Prof. Aaronsohn is tbe director of
the agricultural experiment station
in Palestine, an institution financed
by Julius Hosenwald and Judge
Julian Mack, of Chicago.
The investigator, who found the
original wheat plant growing wild
in Palestine after years of search, is
engaged in crossing the plant with
better grades of wheat in order to
produce a superior one.
The experiments, Prof. Aaronsohn
asserts, shqw that a type of wheat
can be produced adapted to the
semi arid regions of Algeria, Tunis,
Syria, Egypt, Turkestan and other
Eastern countries ahd to similar
land in America' Plants grown by
the experiments thrive in rocky,
shallow and dry soil without cultivation, and are said to withstand
Prof. Aaronsohn told of his work
on a former visit to Chicago, and
Mr. Rosenwald and Judge Mack advanced funds tor the station in Palestine. Botanists of the University
of Chicago have followed the work
with interest.
•'This is really the biggest proposition regarding the food supply of
the world now before us," said Prof.
Coulter, head of tbe department ol
botany at the university, who talked
with Prof. Aaronsohn. "The crossing of the wild wheat witb otber
grades will insure crop io drouth
aud in arid lands. It will be the
salvation of  the Eastern countries,"

Buffalo Furs
Out In Western Kansas one still
frequently sees an old plainsman drive
into town covered with a buffalo overcoat or a buffalo laprobe In tbe winter tlm8. However, buffalo robes
are becoming very scarce and in a
few year,! they will entirely disappear.
Tbere was a time when Kansas furnished buffalo robes for the world.
No well regulated family on an Eastern farm was without one. They
were not only very warm but reasonable ln price.
It was the Kaw Indians who flrst
marketed buffalo robes. Later manufacturers, seeing the vast profit in
, them, made them by .the thousands
and supplied the world. But the
manufactured or patent tanned robes
didn't last as long as the robes tanned
by the Indians. .In fact, It ls said
that the robes now in service were
those tanned by these Indians many
years before the white men began to
tan them.
The Indian women did tbe tanning.
They fastened the green hides to a
• sot of frimes just like grandmother
used to fasten her quilts to, when she
made them. The squaws would then
take a blunt Instrument, resembling
a hoe, and work off all the flesh and
membrane from the hide.
They called It fleshing. Then
they would rub the skin for several
days with a heavy, smooth surfaced
club until all the grease had been
driven out of the hide. They used
no chemicals at all in tanning. Only
hides from buffaloes killed late in the
winter were used in making robes, as
the fur was then heaviest.
Before the Kaws threw the robes
, on the market they used them ln making inoc.a-ia.Iii9 and 'winter clothing, also for covering their tepees. But
when a market was established for
them and the Indians could get real
money, or real food or real whisky for
them, buffalo tepees soon disappeared
from the reservation. ,

Most Ornaments Worn by Red Men
Are Symbolical
Few ornaments worn by the Indians
are purely decorative, as we are accustomed to believe. Almost every
fantastic part of the braves' garb was
symbolic, and as such, lt was honored
by the onlooker and esteemed by the
proud possessor. Such was true especially of the feathered head gear
known as the war bonnet. This ornament stood for the social relation,
Interdependence and was not directly
connected with the supernatural, as
were so many of tbe Indian's symbols.
Wltb the Omahas, tbe materials required to make the bonnet were gathered by the man who wished to possess lt, but its manufacture depended
on tbe assistance of many persons.
A sort of skull cap was made of dressed deerskin, with a flap hanging be-
i-lnd; a border of folded skin about the
edge formed the foundation of the
crown of golden eagle feathers, which
were fastened so as to stand upright
about the wearer's head. Each one
of these feathers stood for a man;
the tip of hair fastened to the feathers and painted red, represented the
man'B Bcalplock. Before a feather
could be fastened on the bonnet a
man must count, his honors which entitled him to wear the feather, and enabled him to prepare the featber for
use in decorating the war bonnet.
When a warrior counted hlie honors,
he held up the feather which was to
represent them, saying: In such a battle I did this, etc. At the conclusion of the recital the feather waB
handed to the man who was manufacturing the war bonnet, who then put
the feather In Its proper place. As
many of these bonnets contained 50
or more feathers, and as each feather
must have an honor counted upon it,
and no honor could be counted twice,
the manufacturer of a bonnet required
several helpers and the task took
considerable time—often several days
Strips of .--rmlne, arranged to fall over
the ears and cheeks, were fastened
to the bonnet. The ermine represented alertness and skill in evading pur
suit. A bird or some other symbolic
object could be fastened on the crown
of the skull cap. Tbls object was
generally some feature of the man's
vision through which he believed he
received supernatural aid in time of
need. Sometimes the flap was embroidered with porcupine work or
painted with symbolic designs. Songs
were sung during the making of the
Before the advent of the horse
among the Indian tribes the flap of
the bonnet did not extend below the
wrist, thus avoiding Interference
while walking of the wearing of other
ornaments; but after the borse became plentiful the flap was extended
to a man's feet when standing; wben
the man was mounted it lay on the
back of his horse. In former times
a man could not deck his leggings or
shirt with a fringe pf hair, except by
the con&.nt of the warriors. Honors had to bc counted on the strands
of hair is on the feathers used in
making the war bonnet, therefore
each lock or tuft of the fringe stood
for a war honor, and no honor could
be counted twice. It was tbls custom that made garments of this char-
iflCter so highly valued. The hair for
the fringe was generally furnished by
the man's female relatives. Bach of
the locks forming this fringe was usually sewed In a heading ot skin,
Irequently ornamented with quill work.
The reason for the passing of these
ancient and honorable decorations Is
obvious, since Uncle Sam has so rigorously forbidden war.

How Tailors Sew on Button!
•Tailors double their thread used to
sew on buttons and make a knot and
hold the knot In the teeth while they
twist the thread; then they wax lt,
and that keeps lt twisted. Then tbey
put a pin across the button, and after
the buttons are sewed on they remove
the pin and wind the thread around
several times, making a kind of a stem
as this makes lt more easy to button
the garment. The buttons on children's waists should be sewed on
this way so more than one garment
can be buttoned on the same waist.

More About
The Loading Platform
The presant ceacritlon of Western tarmero will never know the
difficulties hnd V'xallms experienced by their predecessors in the
earlier years when no one could get a carload of grain shipped In
bulk except by lotdlng it through an elevator. The system forced
the majority of farmers to sell their grain to the elevator owdera
at arbitrary irlcs, and oft times to submit to heavy dockage Ud
other annoyances, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
the distribution o. wars as fixed by tbe Drain Act, and the use ot the
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the farmer to secure
satisfactory treatment In the disposal ot hla grain, and the highest
market prices at time cf sale. livery farmer therefore, should Aore
and more cideavor to use tbe loading plt.ttorm ln shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It ie the safeguard ot tbe farmera' freedom In disposing ot bis grain to the best advantage for himself.. It
farmers refrain Irom using tbe loading platform freely, lt might result In its being done away with, because railway companies and
elevator owners are strongly opposed to It. It ls easy to under
stand why elevator people desire the loading platform abolished.
The railway 'eople on their part say lt delays the loading ot can
and helps ta cause car shortage. This we know .to be nonsense,
because frequently after cars are loaded whether with grain, coat
lumber or other merchandise, they are sidetracks', for daya and eTeft*
weekaJnstead of being promptly moved forward to destination. It
is engine slinrtage and shortage ot competent trait men that mostly
causes gram llockadea on railways and not lack of can. Let every
farmer therefore, is all he can to use to loading platform and become an indtpe-ideit ahlpper. In subsequent advertisements we
will state In detail the savings and other advantage! ot direct loading into cars compared with loading through elevators.
We handle the farmer! grain strictly on commission, make liberal
advances on car bills ot lading, supervise the grading at time cars
are Inspected, se.uro the highest prices at time ot sale and make
prompt returns when sold. Write ui tor shipping Instruction! fad

Nervous prostration Is a terrible
diseaae to all who understand Its symptoms. At times the sufferer feels
comparatively well, but with slight
exertion the dreadful helplessness returns and ail strength seems to
leave the ayatem.
This letter from Mrs. Martin very
well describes the terrible condition
ln which many a sufferer finds herself. She also tells how she regained health and strength by using Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food after all other
treatments had failed.
Mrs. Edwin Martin, Ayer's Cliff,
Que., writes:—"Before I began using
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I was In a
terrible condition from nervotis exhaustion and prostration. Dlziy spells
would come over me and I would fall
to the floor. The weakness was so
great that I could not so much as
sweep the floor without fainting, but
the nerve food helped me after the
doctors tailed. It has done wonders
ln building up my nervous system. I
can do my own housework now and
washing, and feel that this great medicine has been a God-send to me. I
think It Is thes best of medicines.

Thk muddle in connection
with the contract for the excavating work for the city
reservoir still remains unsolved. At present it looks
as if the city would be mulcted
out of $250. The history of
this case is: When E. Crawford's tender was accepted, the
council adopted a resolution
instructing the city solicitor
to draft a contract, and to'give
it to the chairman of the
water and light committee.
The contract was drawn up
liy the solicitor and handed
to the chairman of the wator
, and light committee. The solicitor supposed that the latter gentleman would have
the contract executed before
work was commenced on the
reservoir. This, however, Aid.
Downey failed to do. There is
therefore no contract in existence, and the case hinges
on the veracity of the con
tractor and the water and
light committee. When the
work was finished the contractor put in a bill for .fttoO
extra, claiming to have removed hardpan from the bottom of reservoir. Whether
or not this liM'dpan was encountered in the excavating
work appears to be a debatable question. Persons who
visited the reservoir when the
work was in progress say that
the ground was sufficiently
loose to be ploughed to the last
shovelful of earth. One thing
appears to be certain. There
is no evidence now in the
vicinity of the reservoir of
hardpan having been removed
Anothea plea set up in favor
of this extra amount is, that
the contractor claims to have
lost money on the work. Persons who should know say that
he made quite a sum. He has
refused to make an amicable
settlement on a basis of $5 a
day for himself and $7 per
day for his teams. It looks
like a bungling piece of work.
It is quite possible that the
frightful increase of insanity
may be caused by the people
endeavoring to locate the humor in the "funny" .Sunday
supplements.    '

When Sir Wilfrid Laurier made
tbe announcement during his On
taria tour that there was bitter strife
in the cabinet, somebody laughed.
The laugh echoed across the continent, from one Conservative newspaper to another, and it grew heartier with repetition. They asked of
themselves, and of the world at
large, wbat does Laurier know about
it? They have receieved tbeir answer in official form, and their
hilarity seems to bave subsided
rather suddenly, lt would be wise
for tbe government to realize early
in the game that there is very little
going on at Ottawa which Sir Wilfrid Laurier does not know about.
He does not need some one to take

Here is a good one that comes
from the mill. Walter Lammerc,
the mill superintendent, caught a
salmon and gave it to Gus Knjulu, <
who attached it by a piece of hay
wire to the end of tbe dock and let
it float in tbe stream to keep it
fresh till he got tbrough work.
Along comes John Hlyna and sees a
line salmon heading up stream close
to the end of the wharf. If he goes
after a spear he may   be   too   late.
j With the nearest weapon, which hap
pens to be an ax, he decides to cap-
j ture his prey. Cautiously he up
i proaches, ns a good fisherman
sbould, and raises his ax to strike.
The Btroke must be quick and true,
for the salmon is a nimble fish. .In
a moment tbe blade has fallen and
John is assured of a good supper.
The ax was sharp and the salmon is
cut in two. But to John's surprise
the fore part of the fish remains in
position, headed up stream as before. Abont this stage of the game
enter Gus Kujula. Kujula talk
Finn and Hlyna talks Dutch, so
peace negotiations were ahout as
slow as between Turkey and Italy.

lhat  Mr. Bordni   will  soon   come

manned by Canadians. He opposed
the Laurier policy because Sir Hugh

that within a few months Mj. Borden will be back to the sound position which he took in his Halifax
speech in October. 1909." These are
the words of a not unfriendly  observer of tbe character and disposition of the premier of Canada.  "He

Usually Due to Overwork snd
' Worry—A Tonic is Needed
Overwork and worry give rise to
nervousness, sleeplessness, headaches,
lack of ambition and lack of interest
ln your work, weak back, Indigestion
and sometimes a complete breakdown
ot the nervous system. On every
hand you find victims ot this kind and
often they do not know what to do
for themselves. If these are your
symptoms you need a tonic, and the
only way to tone up the nerves is
through the blood, Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills are a direct nerve tonic because
they enrich and build up the blood,
and lt is through the blood that the
nerves are fed. Under their tonic
Influence nervousness, with all Its attendant evils, disappear, and the worried sufferer again enjoys health and
strength. Proof of the value of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills ln nervous troubles Is given by Mrs. Lara Schevlng,
Lundar, Man., who says:—"I was attacked with nervous trouble which almost drove me to distraction. It
would be almost Impossible for words
to describe my condition. The least
thing would startle me and leave me
trembling for an hour. I had nervous headaches and slept very badly
at nights, some nights not at all. My
appetite grew poor, and I was really
a physical wreck. I had been to
several doctors and had taken many
different medicines, but without any
benefit. Then I read of a case similar cured by the use of Dr, Williams'
Pink Pills and I sent tor a dozen
boxes fully believing lt would take
at least that many to cure me. You
can Judge of my gratitude, however,
when I found that after using only
half a dozen boxes I was again enjoying the best of health, and have since
remained well and strong. I used
the remainder of tho pills among my
children when they seemed out of
sorts, and have found them at all
times to be the very best of family
You can get Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills through any dealer In medicine
or by mall at 60 cent! a box or six
boxes for $2.60 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Easy to Estimate Th.m According tt
United Stat.* Army Ruin.
It Is remarkable how the average
civilian overestimates the number ot
persons iu a parade. Take, far exam-
pie, the recent suffragist parade ln
New York. It wat said that tbere
were 15,000 women ln line, nnd soms
enthusiasts put lt even at 20,000. But
It Is easy to estimate sucb numbers
approximately. Bere Is tbe rule as
laid down In the "Field Service Regulations" ot tbe United States army:
"The strength ot a body of troopi
may be estimated from the length ot
time It takes to pass a given point
Assuming that Infantry lo column of
fours occupies half t yard per man,
cavalry one yard per trooper and artillery In tingle column per guu or caisson, a glveu point would be passed In
one minute by about 175 infantry, UO
cavalry at a walk, 200 cavalry at a
trot and Ave guns or caissons."   -
Allowing for spacing between companies, battalions und regiments, all ot j
which Is according to mathematical |
rule, It takes a regiment of 1,000 men
divided Into battalions, Just ten minutes to past, or at tbe rate of 0,000 an
hour. And this supposes no breaks in
the line.
These rules, It must he remembered,
ire for trained soldiers used to a long
ttep and to keeping up without straggling. No civilians, even militant suffragettes, ever bare kept up or could
keep up this pace, and In the women's
parade many of the organizations
walked In column of twos. This parade took an hour and a half to pass.-

are not greatly tolled.
Some women mnke tbelr own toilet
soap, using a pure white soap ai a
foundation. It ls melted ln bot water,
ind when boiling a pinch of borax
and sachet and enough orris'robt to
give a pleasant odor are added; then
i handful of oatmeal le stirred In and
the mixture turned out Into small
molds to harden. A few drops of
lemon Juice idded will aid to whiten
the bands.
When making tbe soap use a small
quantity for a ball to remove the
stains too deep for tbe other cake. To
i imall amount of the melted soap stir
In a teaspoonful of powdered pumice.
Let this harden beforo using.
Wben It Is necessary to do work
which will discolor the hands rub them
over with vinegar and allow to become thoroughly dry. Tbls will form
l protecting coat over them, ind lf
white soap Is pressed Into the nails
no ugly stains can form, A sulphur
match Is excellent for removing Ink
stains. We are til familiar witb the
effects of lemon and tomato on new
discoloration*, and unpleasant odors
may be removed by dipping the bands
la warm mustard water.
Cornmcal alone or mixed with orris
root makes a most acceptable shampoo,
while for white bair wheat dour, orris
root tnd starch In equal parti ihould
be used.
Oue should always uie great care to
massage the scalp carefully wben giving a dry shampoo, and tbe hair must
be brushed well to remove all traces of
the powder; otherwise tbe hair will
bave an unpleasant, dingy appearance.

Strok. Yeur Hair Fer Beauty.
A woman wbose hnlr ls always soft
ind glistening hu disclosed tbe secret
of ber attractive coiffures. Sbe buys a
package of absorbent cotton from the
druggist's. Next she strips a layer
from It and places tbe layer over the
bristles ot a wire hairbrush, pushing
It well down until the bristles penetrate the cotton, whicli sbould lie close
to the back of tbe brush. Then sbe
strokes the bair, beginning near the
scalp and giving a vigorous stroke to
tbe ends. A few of these firm ttroket
will reveal how large a quantity of

A Fine Salad Mad* From Left Over
Spinach Salad.—The spinach" left
over from dinner makes a salad which
may appropriately be served with roast
beef, mutton, game or fish. Dress with
a highly seasoned French dressing,
using about six tablespoonfuls ot olive
oil to a pint of the spinach. Slice three
bard boiled eggs. Remove the yolks,
leaving the whites In rings. Chop th*
yolks. Form the spinach into a neat
mound upon a salad platter. Place th*
golden yolks on top and around tbem
arrange the whites, letting the rings
overlap each otber, thus giving the Idea
of a big aster or daisy. Decorate tbt
base of tbe mound wilh tiny lettuc*
Sago Fuddlng.-The following U a
very old family recipe for a sago pudding which used to be served after tht
simple Sunday dinner of olden times.
Aa lt Is rich with eggs, such a dessert
Is very appropriate for a simple meal.
The recipe calls for six heaping tablespoonfuls of sago, a quart of cold milk,
one of boiling milk, six egg yolks, a
toacupful of sugur and a little grated
nutmeg. Let tbe sago soak In tbe cold
milk for five hours. Then add the boiling milk nnd cook Ihe whole until soft
Beat the yolks to a smooth mass with
the sugar and nutmeg. Then bake the
whole ln a pudding dish for about
twenty minutes. Wben cold a meringue
prepared from the whites of the eggs
may bo spread over the top, with, lf
preferred, a layer of Jelly between, or
the whites may bo set aside to use for
Monday's dessert ln a fruit whip or a
mow pudding.
Lemon Layer Cake.—Tbls calls for
one generous cupful of butter, two of
sugar, tbree of pastry flour, ono small
one of milk, the yolkt of five eggs, the
whites of three, one teaspoonful. of
cream of tartar, half a teaspoonful ot
soda and the Juice of n fresh lemon or
one teaspoonful ot lemon extract
Cream the bulter and sugar, add Hie
flavoring and the yolkt well beaten.
Stir tbe whole into the flour, tods and
cream of tartar, which should be sifted
together tbree times. Beat the egg
whites to a stiff froth. Fold them
through the batter and bake lu two
layer tins. Ice when cool. One teaspoonful and a half of baking powder
may be used Instead of the cream of
tartar and soda.
The Maligned Prune.—Prunes cm bt
cooked to advantage In a tlow oven In
a pipkin closely covered. Add a sliced
orange or lemon and sweeten before
cooking. Cooking Ibis fruit up quickly
ls wbat hat given It ltt unpleasant rep*
utatlon. The average cook stewa
prunes for a few minutes In a little
sweetened water without any addition
ot orange or lemon nnd then sends
them tasteless and tough to tbe table,

Next Monday being Thankfgiv-
Jng day, tbe regular weekly meeting
of the Woman's Auxiliary ol Holy
Trinity church has heen postponed
till 3 pm. next Tusday, Octoher '29
"Our Boys," a two-act comedy,
was presented at the opera house on
Monday night to A large audience
by local talent, under tbe auspices
of tbe Woman's Auxiliary of Holy
Trinity church. The play was very
funny, and those who took part in
the production did very well.
J..M. Doyle, district manager for
P. Burns & Co., and AG. Carpenter, of Nelson, manager of lhe
Boundary branches, inspected the
rhelocul market on Wednesday.
The members of "The Missouri
Girl" company, at the opera house
ou Saturday night, failed to show
the audience that they knew a great
deal about acting. -The performance
was, In fact, very commonplace. A
"barker" was employed to draw a
crowd—the usual method pursued
by performers wbo mistrust that
tbe merit of their productions is sufficient to attract audiences.
A Western Favorite
The Family Herald and Weekly
Star of Montreal have announced
their programme for 1913, and sub
scribers are to receive greater value
than ever before, and that is laying
a whole lot. In this western country, such a paper is a great blessing.
It interests everybody. The hints
and information it gives are worth
hundreds of dollars in a year. New
settlers cannot afford to be without
such a paper, no other fills the bill
for the West like The Family Herald
and Weekly Star. In addition to
tbe paper for a whole year, each
subscriber receives a most beautiful
picture entitled "Mother's Treas
ures." It is 23 by 29 inches, all
ready for framing. The picture alone
would sell at a two dollar bill in
any art store in the Hig cities. Any
borne not now getting The Family
Herald and Weekly Star should give
it a trial for 1913. Tbe will never
regret it.
The high board fence has been
removed from the postoffice building, and the people can now see the
structure with the naked eye.
