Orand Forks Liberals Decide
Not to  Contest the
.   Constituency
Work at the Napobon
Last year the Napoleon mine
shipped 14,134 tone of sulphide
ore, which was used at the Greenwood smelter aa sulphur flux. The
stripping of the oxide ore body at
tbis mine has proved the oxide body
to be greater than was expected. The
Napoleon mill was completed last
March. The mill did not work with
entire satisfaction, causing too much
loss in the tailings, and was shut
down in order to install a filter press
at a cost of 95000. This will be
finished, and the mil) in operation
before the end of May.—Ledge.    .
Autocrats at Flay
There appears to have bean some
.trouble at Golden yesterday between
Premier MoBiide and the mote independent members of the Conservative
party in tbe Columbia constituency,
A Mr. Harold Forster announced his
inteutention of running in the constituency as an "independent" follower of
Mr. McBride. The premier intimated
to the convention that if the constituency did not elect the candidate chosen
by the convention there would be a
vacancy in the party caucus, and both
he and Mr. Bowser intimated that the
party nominee—H. G. Parsons—must
be elected. - Mr. McBride is reported
to have wid that as long as he led the
Conservatives in British Columbia he
was determined to keep the party together. This was as clear an intima
tion as any czar could make that if
the Columbia constituency elected the
candidate of their choice the constitu
ency would be "disciplined," and no
one knows McBrido'* but must fear
what that would mean. Not satisfied
with the abject subservience of the
members of the legislature who—
without protest or open criticism—allow the premier and his Man Friday
to carry on the business uf- the country, with the most unbridled effrontery the premier has now intimated
that he intends to exact the suine subserviency from every Conservative organization in the province. We should
think the independent, manly and
self-respecting voters of the province
would come to the conclusion that it
it high time for a reasonable number
of members to sit in the opposition
and take same of the conscienceless
Neroism out of Hon. Mr. McBride.—

Dr. Moree'e Indian Root Pill*
Healed Mr. Wilson's Bores
When the sewers of the body—bowels,
kidneys and skin ducts—get clogged up,
lhe blood quickly becomes impure and
frequently sores bleak out over the body.
The way to heal them, as Mr. Richard
Wilson, who lives near London, On!.,
found, is lo purify thc blood, lie
"For some time I had been in a low,
depressed condition. My appetite left
tne and I soon began to suffer from indigestion. Quite a number of small sores
and blotches formed ull over my skin. I
tried medicine for the blood and used
many kinds of ointments, but without
satisfactory results. What was wanted
was a thorough cleansing of the blood,
and I looked about in vain for some medicine that would accomplish this.
At last Dr. Morse's Indian Hoot Pills
were brought to my notice, and they are
ene ol the most wonderful medicines I
have ever known. Hy blood was purified in i very short time, sores healed up,
my Indigestion vanished. Tbey always
have a place in my home and are looked
upon as the family remedy."
Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills cleanse
the system thoroughly. Sold by all

How A Gold Mine Was Discovered.
The death in Sydney ot Mr. Waller
Hall, a Mount Morgan millionaire, recalls the story ot tbo discovery ot the
famous Queensland gold mine. It
sounds more like some startling fiction than a piece ot real lite. It was
a portion of a selection owned by a
man named Gordon, but tbe pasturage
was very poor, and his existence,
which he maintained by keeping a few
bend of cattle was miserable enough.
One day about thirty years ago, two
brothers named Morgan, prospectors,
passed his ramshackle hut, built unsuspectingly over untold wealth and
partook of the hospitality which Gordon ottered to them as to all other
travellers in the bush. Something
attracted thc trained eyes ot the two
brothers, and picking np Idly a few
samples of stone, they bade Gordon
goodbye. They reappeared soon afterwards, and altered to buy his poo.
selection from him, and he cangralu-
lated himself on getting rid of lt al
£1 an acre. Even then the Morgans
had no Idea ol the real -value of their
new property, though they were cor.,
fident it would pay them to work it.
They proponed to a Hockhampton resident a sale of hall tbelr Interest for
£2,000 iu order to bny mining machinery, and eventually this gentleman
and three others put lu £500 eacb.
In a few years they and the Morgans
were all millionaires.
A Clock That Talks
The newest timepiece which Is
shortly to be placed upon the market
actually calls out the hours, half hours,
and quarters, day and night, unless
shut oft and will tell you the time to
the minute any bour ot tho night if
you press a llttlo button at your bedside. The works of this remarkable
clock actuate a stout belt which rune
over a roll connected with a sounding
box. Upon this belt, or rather film,
the hours, which have been recorded
by a phonograph, are pressed by galvanisation on a copper plate. The
mechanism which moves the hands is
connected with tho sneaking device,
and with this a funnel, which reinforces the sound and projects it outward through a finely grated opening
attached to the narrow side of the
clock. At night a touch on the lever
reduces tho clock to silence. Bat if
one wakes and wishes to know the
time without striking a light, an easily found button la pressed, and the
clock Immediately starts the time. The
speech film Is practically Indestructible and occupies very llttlo space,
since, because of Its elasticity, tt may
be wound upon a very small roller

Invented n door which opens to hts

means of a simple electromagnet
which draws tho bolt when a current

and a piano wire attuned to a certain

of its octavos, the wlro vibrates in
response, and this vibration brings lt

Interesting Facts and Figures of Its
Wonderful Development
When Lord and Lady Dufferin set
out from Winnipeg In September 1877,
on their return journey to Ottawa,
they passed up the Red River by
steamer.to the United States frontier,
where Ihey were able to take a railway train and so travel by way of St.
Paul and Chicago to Detroit, where
they crossed again to Canadian territory. Between Western and-Hasteru
Canada thero waB then no railway
connection, and in the West Itself
there were but a few •miles ot roughly
built railway lu Manitoba, not then ln
operation, -for on their way up the Red
Kiver the Vice-Regal party passed a
barge carrying to Winnipeg the first
locomotive that ever turned Its wheel
in that city.
That was a little more thnn thirty-
four years ago. Today there are in
the Canadian West 10,100 miles of
railway—more tban one-third of the
total mileage in all Canada, and tide
refers only to the three prairie provinces—the country between the head
of Lake Superior and tho Rocky
mountains, la Manitoba there are
3,706 miles of railway, in Sasjtatche
wan, 4,202, and ln Alberta 2,111—an
Increase ot 1,400 miles over the mileage of 1911, and an increase of six
thousand miles over the mileage of
ten years ago.
And the great fact must be borne in
mind—great ae are the railway facilities of tho West, (hoy aro not adequate to the needs of the country, and
although construction work is being
vigorously prosecuted by three great
railway companies the needs of transportation services keep ahead of the
railway companies.
The West outgrows Its railway facilities about, as fast as a healthy boy
outgrows hie clothes.
The first census taken after Canada
acquired Prince Rupert's Land from
the Hudson's Bay Company, waB tbat
ot the year 1871, and that census gave
Manitoba a population of 25,228, and
the Northwest Territories 18,000, a
total of 48,228, for the area now comprised within the three prairie provinces.
According to the census of June last,
Manitoba has a population of 454,691;
Saskatchewan 458,208; Alberta, 3..,-
919—a total of 1,281,118, or more people than the province of Quebec contained when It entered Confederation,
or a third of a million moro than tie
present population of the Ihre. Marl
time Provinces. The present population .of our ^Veet, In co-nparisj.i
with the numbers lt Is capable of sustaining, making independent and well-
thy, Is but as a vanguard to the main
army. The West Is tn reality still an
empty country.- Its farms are ouly
patches on the prairies, and yet those
patches have passed the million bushel
mark in the production ot wheat alone.
There Ib room in the west for millions
more of people. They are steadily
pouring ln, and the day ts not tar distant when Western Canada, will contain more people than will be found
ln Eastern Canada.
The progress and wealth of the West
is briefly told by a few other facts
which speak so clearly that comment
Is unnecessary. In all Canada there,
are 2,020 banks—including bead offices and branches. Of tbat number
27.7 per cent, or 727, aro located in
the wheat-growing provinces of Western Canada. Ten years ago there
were only 71 banks In the Canadian
West—not quite one-tenth the number
there are today. And the number
grows weekly.
The bank . clearings at WeBtern
points show a splendid record—an increase of 27 per cent, during the past
year. Last year the bank clearings
in the Eastern Canadian cities amounted to $4,850,846,587. In the cities of
tho West, Including those of British Columbia, the clearings amounted
to (2,422.106,595.
Building operations hear testimony
to the progress ofthe West. Last
year in twelve of the principal centres
of population the outlay on the new
structures amounted to fifty and a
half million dollars—three times bb
much as was spent tn 1907. During
tlie same period the postal revenue
collected ln theBe same cities ras Increased from $594,550 to 1,722,816.
while thc postal revenues ot the East
Increased 30 per cent., that of the
West Increased 119 per cent.
Grain Is the basis of the prosperity
of the West, and the centre of the
grain trade Is Winnipeg, and Winnipeg
has outstripped the two groat American cities that sre rivals ln this commerce.
Last yoar thc wheat receipts at Winnipeg amounted to 101,326.250 bushels.
At Minneapolis the receipts were 90,-
647,850 bushels, and at Chicago 42,-
629,751. Tro oat reoelpts at Winnipeg
were 20,128,800 bushels, and at Minneapolis 11,400,820.
Thc West Is making rapid strides.
To the homeless It offers laud, Independence aud wide opportunities, lt
provides an enormous and steadily
growing market for the products of
the East, and It also offers a wide
field for tho Investment of eastern
capital. East and West oach neeus lhe

The Duke of Connaught's Criticism of

much needed attention given to its
exterior. This Ib due to the outspoken remarks of the Duke of Connaught
upou the appearance of the Palace.
Last year Mr. Harcourt, tho First
Commissioner of Works, found himself with a surplus of $750,000. in
hand, and this he purposed to devote
to the painting of the interior of the
Palace and other highly necessary
works. He waa overruled, however,
by other members of the Cabinet on
the ground that with such large shins
required for the Coronation and otho
Royal purposes the sum should be
expended elsewhere. It Ib understood
that work will be commenced on ih-i
building about Easter, when the
Court will be at Windsor, and that it
will be pushed forward so as lo be
completed by the time the Lonion

thia Season.   c_/l_n Inspiration of Love and
Affection—<-_^4 Picture that will be like a
Member of  the Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
'pHl1. Family Herald antl Weekly Slur of Montreal, acknowledged to he
I tin- greatest and best-family and farm paper on the continent, has on
- mnny occasions given Un readers most delightful premium picture,
hut this season they have secured wbat is beyond any question of doubt
the hest picture ever offered newspaper readers. It iB entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for bis beauty and gentleness, winners
ot mnny prizes nt dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
bus been stolen, nnd after many days' absence he escapes one night from
bis captor antl returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
wbich bring her mother and'brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Homo Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, wbich in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
Tbe sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
nnd parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with bair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
I'irl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
Hie beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
oil the walls of any home.     -
The picture-is by the celebrated artist, [Arthur J. Elslcjy- famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals, £
The beautiful picture "Hom9 Again"4n heavy plate paper 22x29
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
Tbe Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Star for 1912.
The small sum of SI.50 will secure tbe two papers for a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which nlorfe is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.

to Neglect the

THINE of the suffering
entailed by neglected skin
troubles — mental because
of disfiguration, physical because of pain. Think of the
pleasure of A clear skin, soft,

These blessings, so essential
to happiness and even success in life, are often only a
matter of a little thoughtful
care in thc selection of effective remedial agents. Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment do so much for poor
complexions, red, rough
hands, and dry, thin and
falling hair, and cost so
little, that it is almost criminal not to use them.

everywhere, a postal to "Cutloura,"

He Will be the Guest of Emperor William and Witt Receive Special
Honors, t
It Is expected that the Prince of
Wales will paya visit to Berlin shortly after his eighteenth birthday in
June next, and that he will stay for
a week with the Emperor and Empress. The Kaiser was extremely anxious to have the prince visit him a
short time ago, but Queen Mary then
held that her son was too young and
that it would be better lo wait for
another year or so. While the prince
is ln the German capital he wjll be
admitted as a Knight of tho Black
Eagle. This order ranks third in Importance among European decorations, being only surpassed hy the
Garter and the Golden Fleece of Spain.
The last named distinction, by the
way, is also likely to be bestowed upon the Pi-luce of Wales hy King Alfonso during the course of next year.
Tlie visit to Berlin will bo in state
and entertainments in honor of the
young prince will ho arranged for
every day, terminating with u review
of tho troops in the garrison, specially
strengthened for the occasion. Before
this review takes place tlio Kaiser
proposes to create tlie prince a colonel
of one of the regiments on parade.

Shorn of Her Grown of Beauty, Loses Love and
Hair is certainly most necessary to
woinun. Wiio could love and marry a
bald headed woman? What charms
could one array to offset such disfigurement!
A woman's goal is usuuly love and
marriage. Her clowning glory is ber
hair.. The loss of her hair mars her
beauty, happiness, and success. Yet
right here in Grand Forks there are
thousands of women who 'are neglecting or injuring their hair to such an
extent that it is only a matter of time
when it will be utterly ruined.
Many women destroy the beauty of
their hair through thoughtlessness or
ignorance of certain facts They use
curling irons Over heated, or to exi e-ts,
which destroys tlie natural oil of the
hair, causing it to split, break, and
come out. They do not shampoo their
hair often enough, or too often They
use soaps or preparations which contain ingredients positively harmful to
the scalp and hair.
As a result of such treatment, dandruff is created, the hair looSens, loses
color, falls out, and baldness com-
mences,unle8s propel- and prompt precautions are taken in time. Then
again, microbes and certain diseases
bring about unhealthy sculp aud hair

hair if she will but use the right
remedy. We have that remedy, and
we will positively guarantee that it
will either cure dandruff and baldness
