TO WORK FROM WENATCHEE.  Preparations for Immediate Construction  of the Wenatchee-Oroville  Connection.  HEDLEY,  B. G.  KL H. ROGERS,  M.A., K.C.L.  ��������������� !  I  Wenatchee, Wash., Feb. 5.���������Wi bh  600 mules on" the road to Wenatchee  and 3000 men wanted for railroad work  on the new branch of the' Great Northern between Wenatchee and Oroville,  the arrival of the forces'of that rdad  has caused great excitement in this  city. Dan McCann,a railroad contrac-  tor who is known all over the west as  one who handles large propositions,,  arrived in this city today and has since  The Director of the Geological Survey has introduced into his Summary  Report for 1906 a now feature which  will appeal to all those interested in  the mining industry of this country.  In a few words he suriis up the -principal items of the mineral introduction  and shows that the inining industry  has never yet been  in  so healthy a  condition.   He writes : * It can be said  without fear of exaggeration  that the  conditioncof the milling industry in  Canada in 1906 has befen  one of large  prosperity, that it has; in fact,I.achieved greater 'progress', arid  given  bigger  returns than during any previous year  on record.     In the year-1905 the total  mineral output readied almost $70,-  000,000,:as compared  With but a little  over $60,000,000 in 19tfi, and while actual figures of production are not yet  available for 1906,  the   activity  evidenced in both the metalliferous and  non-metalliferous  mining    will,    no  doubt, result in another large increase  being shown.   There has been during  the year an active demand for nearly  all mining products, land the higher  prices   realized,    especially    for   the  metals and their ore's,  has not only  helped to increase the actual output,  but have stimulated development and  prospecting throughout the country.

One  of the first things to be done is  the  construction of a' number of miles of  sidetrack,  and this work will be finished betore the beginning of the road  proper.   Right of way men are now  busy on the east side of the Okanagan  river and necessary notices are being  served on the Indians who occupy the  greater part of the reservation through  which the road must pass.   The principal difficulty to be experienced  in  the building of the new road is the  fact that men are scarce, aud with tin's  in mind the company has brought in a  large number'of Greeks, but at present  tlie number'is not sufficient for the  magnitude of the work at hand.

During 1906 the prices of all  these metals had increased, and in  December,. 1906, the quotations were  as follows : Silver, civer 70 cents per  ounce; copper,over 22_ cents per pound;  Lead, 5.75-cents-per pound; spelter, 6*t  cents per pound, and nickel from 45 to  50 cents per pound.  Nickel.���������The nickel-copper mines  at Sudbury have been actively worked  throughout the year and will show an  increased output. Electric power has  been introduced and the general efficiency of the works greatly improved.  Copper.���������The actual output of copper in eastern Canada, outside of the  metal obtained from the nickel ores  above mentioned, is comparatively  small, but a great deal of work has  been done during the year in the exploration and development of copper-  properties.  British Columbia is now Canada's  great copper-producing province and  more particularly the great bodies of  low grade, but easily mined, ores of  the Boundary district. The shipments  from this district during ten months  of 190(5 are estimated at close on to a  million tons or greater than the total  output of 1905. The smelting capacity  of three furnaces in the district was  considerably iucreased during the  year. Dividends were declared by one  company aggregating $1,215,000.  The copper miues of the Coast district in this# province have been actively worked during the year, as were  also in the ores of the Rossland district, which are further mentioned  under the heading ' Gold.'  Gold.���������The gold output in  Canada  has been showing a yearly decrease  since 1900 due to a regular falling off  in the Yukon placer production, and  this decrease has,  in  all probability,  continued in 1900.   In eastern Canada  the output has never been large,  but  Nova. Scotia seems  to make a  better  showing in 190(5 than in the immediately preceding years.    In British Columbia the gold production  has shown a  slow but steady increase which has to  some extent counter-balanced the decrease in the Yukon output.    In Ross-  land an  important amalgamation of  interests took place in the  early part  of t.ie year.      The  War Eagle and  Centre Star Mines, the smelting works  of Trail,   with   the St. Eugene silver-  lead   mines  of   East  Kootenay,  and  other interests, were united under one  management known as the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of  Canada.      The   consolidation   is   one  which will, no doubt,  tend  to much  greater  stability   in the   mining   industry.  During  the past week  some   very  pretty   cloud  effects   were   reported  from the Nickel Plate, which is nearly  a   mile   higher   up  in   the   air  than  Hedley.     Several   days  upon   which  Hedley was experiencing cloudy weather, they had bright sunshine up at  the Nickel Plate and could look down  on the sea of white cloud which was  shutting out the rays of the sun from  dwellers in the valley below.    With  the   bright sunlight playing on  this  cloud ..mass hanging over the valley,  and with an 'occasional-peak of some  of   the  lower  hills   protruding,    the  effect produced is one of rare beauty.  Nor .-are the effects wholly reserved  for  those  who view  them  from   the  higher level,   for   to   those   beneath,  who are temporarily deprived of the  sunlight,, there  are   also   some   rare  phenomena.     A   remarkable    effect  seen during several'mornings of last  week was  the peculiar indigo bluish  tint of the lower strata of cloud canopy  covering the town."  Nature had evidently improvised a spectrum at some  point-in the hills and the sunlight was  supplying  the coloring matter.   Another marked effect visible from the  town was the beautiful white drapery  which marked the cloud line on the  hillsides after the clouds had lifted.  B. C's. MINERAL PRODUCTION  General View of Progress of the Mining  Industry in 1906.  Below was the dark green foliage of  the firs with ho suggestion of frost  crystals, but where the cloud mass  had rested the cloud moisture had  been frozen into a coating of frost  crystals that drest' every bough with  diamond beads,-.and the line of division between the green and the white  was sharply marked.  THE CITIZEN  MIRTHFULLY  TWITS  'EM.  How the News of the B.C. Election Was  Received    at    Ottawa���������Some  Tell-tale Quotations.  Ottawa Citizen.  Continued on Page Two.  Columbia were received by members  of Parliament with the greatest interest. The fact that the entire Federal  delegation from the Pacific province  is Liberal gave a tone of confidence to  the members of the party which, was  bound to influence somewhat the general feeling about the House. Even in  Number six, predictions of success for  Premier McBride were confined to the  few who happened to have intimate  knowledge, of the political situation in  the Province. It-was, therefore, if .nor.  an agreeable surprise, at least a doubly  welcome announcement that the Conservative party had been returned to  power with a handsoma majority over  Liberals and Socialists combined.  That, on the other hand, the result is  a deep disappointment to the Liberal  members, is evidenced by the exultant  tone of their predictions.  During the discussion on Friday,  Jan. 25th, following Mr. Borden's criticism of the Dominion Government's  interference in the terminal land grant  to the Grand Trunk Pacific, several  of the British Columbia members  voiced their confidence in the overthrow. One of the loudest was Mr.  Macphersou of Vancouver, whose district has given a solid support to Mr.  McBride. " I want to tell my good  friends on the opposite side of the  House," he said "that the people of  British Columbia are going to stamp  out, a week from tomorrow, the Socialistic Conservative government  which has been in office in British  Columbia for three years."  The Minister of Inland Revenue,  whose city, Victoria, has not returned  a single Liberal, was scarcely less confident. He said: "If there is one thing  more than another which is going to  defeat the McBride government, it is  the Kalen Island scandal. That will  have more effect in turning the Government out of power on Feb. 2 next  than anything else."  Last evening several messages of  congratulation were sent to Premier  McBride bv the Conservative members  of the Commons.  Roughly estimated two and a quarter  million dollars in excess of the returns  shown by last year's record will be realized from the total output*of the  mines of British Columbia this year.  This, statement was made the other  day by Provincial' Mineralogist Robertson. He stated that there was a  much improved condition evident  throughout all the mining camps.  ; The rise in the price,of ore had made  a change for the better. The majority  of the properties were operating to  their fullest capacity. ,   ���������       ! ;  While the advances in ore -values.  had stimulated the industry to .1  marked extent, its full effect had hot  yet been felt. Large numbers of  properties which formerly had been  deemed unprofitable were being taken  up and exploited. Capital has been  invested in larger amounts than ever  before. Outsiders were becoming interested and the prospects were that  in the course of one or two years .the  output would be largely increased.  It was hardly possible to expect  that any of these claims should have  any influence upon the records at such  an earlv stage in their development.  It would take twelve months, or more,  before the majority would be ready  to make regular shipments. ..'Once the  preliminaries were overcome and they  were added to the ranks of the active  mines of the province, a difference' in  the output would be noted. He looked  for this, as he had previously stated,  in the verv near future.  v r     . . .       .  Provided the general conditions continued as at present and assuming that  the market maintained the prices now  quoted, he looked for a long continuance of prosperous times. And, he  added, there appeared to be a very  slight possibility of any important  change. The mines in operation would  increase their outputs to meet their  demands, new mines would continue  to show a disposition to assist in the  development of the immense mineral  resources which British Columbia- is  shown to possess.  TWO CENTS  WOULDN'T GO.  W. F. Maclean's Bill Goes Down Before  the   Railway   Committee of  the   Commons.  The bill introduced at Ottawa by  W. F. Maclean, M. P. for South York,  to compel railways to give a passenger  rate of two cents per mile did not get  past the committee stage but was  downed on an overwhelming vote.  The railways had, put up a strong  canvass and stampeded Maclean's  prospective supporters by telling them  that if the bill should pass no more  excursion cheap fares could be given,  no reductions for return tickets and  no more passes. The cheap return  tickets by which the C.P.R. had created for itself a large volume of business  each year among the Manitoba farmers, by giving them inducements to go  back to Ontario for Christmas and return any time during the winter and  early spring, cooked things for Maclean so far as support from Manitoba  members was concerned, and many  others from different parts of the  country took the same view. Those  railway lobbyists certainly savvy their  business.  THEY DIDN'T ADVERTISE.  An old bachelor bought a pair of  socks and found attached to one a paper with these words:���������  ������������������I am a young lady of 20. and would  like to correspond with a bachelor  with a view to matrimony." The name  and address was given.  The bachelor wrote and in a few  days got this reply: "Mamma was  married twenty years ago. Evidently  the merchant of whom you bought  those socks did not advertise, or he  would have sold them long ago. My  mother handed me your letter and  said that possibly I might suit. 1 am  eighteen."  There is no record of what further  happened. THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE, .-FEBRUARY   21, . 1W)7.

The  i day for that is past..  "AN ANSWER TO AN ANSER  McBride government exclaims  live the goose  elf u*!"  , EDITORIAL  COMMENTS ~ :  ,  It now transpires that the Domihioii  Government had made actual transfer  of the Metlakatla Indian lands to the  Grand Trunk Pacific. If this be so a  serious clash is on between this province and' the Ottawa- government involving not only the whole question"  of provincial rights but also of property in this province. There can be only  one outcome of this matter and that is  that the'federal government aiid the  G. T. P. must drop their prey; for if  McBride and his government recede  one pace from the position which they  have taken they will have the electois  of B. C. to answer to. This matter, as  well as that of "better terms," may  have to go to Downing street for  settlement.  All sort of speculation'has been in  dulged in by the press and others regarding the filling of vacant port-folios  in the cabinet. Most of it seems to  take for its kevnote the assumption'  that because certain men have formerly held certain port-folios they should  necessarily be appointed now to the  same. The Gazette would prefer to  see efficiency made the dominant feature to determine the allotment. And  if this be followed, the man who would  fit like a round peg in a round hole for  the Lands and Works department is  Neil F. McKay, of Kaslo. for he knows  that department from A to % aiid is in  every way qualified to fill it efficiently  creditably and honorably. Besides,  his appointment would be a fitting rebuke to the slanderers of R. F. Green  who was chief of the department during the time that McKay did excellent  work as deputy.  The Hedley Gazette, in   the exuberance of its joy over the victory of  the  'Long  that lays the golden  The application of this  apothegm may not be clear to the average student of political subjects.

Savvy?  KEREMEOS NEWS.  News of Death of A. Kellet Shocks Community���������Misgivings as to Effect  on   Railway   Work.  The. Rossland Miner has a sensible  editorial dealing with the contention  of wholesale men on the coast and in  eastern cities that because they send  their travellers into the interior of the  province to solicit orders they do not  require to advertise in any of the  inland papers. This view the Miner  shows to be both narrow-minded and  unsound. It is a view that also helps  to confirm the impression that has for  some years been growing in the minds  of business men and wage-earners of  this- portion of the province, that the  business attitude of the big fellows at  the coast towards the interior is " get  everything and give nothing." It  would of course be unfair to make this  statement too general and apply it to  On Tuesday word came over the  phone to the effect that Alex. Kellet,  so well known here in connection with  railway operations, had been frozen to  death ;while. tint, on a timber cruise.  Mr. Kellet was the walking-boss , who  had had charge of construction between Midway and here, for Welch &  Stewart. No details have coiiie to  hand to state definitely either the time  or place where the sad event occurred.  The report merely stated that he and  his guide had been frozen to death on  the cruise. He was only married last  August, and was extremely popular,  both with his subordinates on the work  and with the engineers.  Since the report of his death rumors  are afloat that nothing in the line of  railway construction will take place  here in the Similkameen until after  high water. There is a rumor also to  the effect that men and material are  being taken from Oroville to go down  on to the Wenatchee branch where  work is being started on a large scale.  Geo. Kirby has gone to the coast,  taking two of his daughters along. It  is rumored that lie intends to build a  new hotel near tlie G.N.R. station.  Trains are now running regularly to  Oroville. , .  Geo. Loudon, of F. Richter & Co.,  made a trip to the coast this week.  Rev. A. H. Cameron lias been having  a harder time with la grippe than -most  of the. afflicted.

Continued from Page One'  The discovery .of tit-woi-c' shoots in  the Centre Star and other mines, the  payment of dividends by the Le Roi,  the Le Roi No. 2, and tlie Consolidated  Mining and Smelting Company, and  tfie .encouraging- detailed geological  work done by the Geological Survey  under Mr. Brock, have"'all tended to  put-new life into tlie district'and a  bright future is looked forward to.  The total ore shipments for 1900 may  possibly not exceed or even equal those,  of 1905 owing to the unfortunate strike  of coal miners at Fernie having caused  the smelters to close down for some  months in the latter part of the year  for want of coke.  In Cariboo several properties, including that of-the. celebrated Consolidated  Cariboo Hydraulic Mining Company,  were acquired by tlie Guggenheim  Exploration Company, and a large  investment of capital is being made in  the construction of manv miles of new  ditches, which will supply a more regular and larger supply of water for  the Working of the huge areas of gold-  hearing gravels this company pos-1  sesses.  The Atlin placer depo-.it*> were worked about as usual, although <i shoit.ige  of water.had to bo'contended with.  The gold output of the Yukon \\ ill  ���������again , apparently show ,i decicase.  Official figures are not vet .nailable.  but from current repoits apparently  not more than $6,000,001 is to be expected this year. In this district the  large corporations aie absotbtng the  smaller operators and the Guggenheim  Exploration Company undei the name  of the Yukon Consolidated Gold Fields  Company has entered the field buying  up numerous claims. The company  has already commenced the construction of ditches and flumes to provide  water for operating their claims. Other large work -'are. to he undertaken,  such as the'eonstruction of reservoirs,  a power plant, ;&c.,.and altogether a  large number of men >\ ill be employed  this winter. .  ,  Iron.-���������The iron industry has been  active throughout the year, a good  demand for all classes;'of iron products  having been experienced and the iron  furnaces have been operated probably  more extensively than ever before. A  new furnace plant is in course of erection at Port Arthur intended to utilize  :the. ores of the .Atikokan . are.-is. The  output of pig is likely to be larger thaii  in 1SK)5, and would probably have, been  still greater but for an unfortunate  dispute between the Dominion Iron  and Steel Company and the -Dominion  Coal company in November regarding  their coal contract.  Lead and Silver,���������The argentiferous galenas of the Kootenay districts  are again being worked on a large  scale, the. East Kootenay mines, St.  Eugene and others being large shippers during 1906.  The. Cobalt district of Ontario has  attracted worldwide attention during  the year and is rapidly becoming an  important silver producing district.  " Zinc,-���������The . concentrating -of .'.zinc  ores, in British Columbia has" continued  with considerable success. The huge  zinc smelter at Frank, Alta., was sufficiently advanced for the first .metal  to be turned out in .Tune. It is understood, however, that some further  changes and improvements were found  necessary before regular smelting  could be undertaken.  Non-metallic.���������Amongst the non-  metallic class of minerals mined in  Canada, the more important are mica,  chromite, coal, corundum, gypsum,  mica natural gas, petroleum and salt,  besides the structural materials including the clay products, stone, lime and  cement. The mining of all these products and others of lesser importance  has actively progressed during the  year. The coal .mining industry especially has,made.e.ood.progressin the  various fields exploited, Nova Scotia,  Alberta and Saskatchewan and the  Crow's, Nest Pass and Vancouver Island fields of British Columbia. In  Alberta a rapidly growing population  has created such a demand for. coal  that new mines are yearly opened up  and a much larger output made.  Nearly one-half the coal mined at the  Crowsnest Pass is converted into coke  to supply the rapidly growing demands of the smelting industry in  British Columbia and for export. Labor difficulties have interfered to some  extent with the operations at Fernie  and tit Lethbridge, the latter causing  a shortage, of coal at certain points in  Saskatchewan which threatened to  become serious. These difficulties  have, however, been happily settled  before the close of the year and no  doubt in time to avoid any further  serious trouble.

The chromite ores of this district  have also been mined about as usual.  Gypsum mining in Nova Scotia and  New Brunswick and to a lesser extent  in Ontario and in Manitoba has been  carried on with increased output.  Higher prices have also been obtained  in this industry.  The   corundum  of Ontario finds a  ready market; mica has been in good  demand and at higher prices, while  natural gas, petroleum and salt industries of the Ontario peninsula have  been worked as usual.  In the structural material class the  production of clay products such as  bricks, tiles &c, stone and lime, has  to keep pace with the growth of the  population. The increased use of cement in all kinds of structural work  such as buildings, sidewalks and road-  work, bridges and monolithic work,  &a., lias caused a great demand for  this product arid a largely increased  output is being made. 7117  THE   HEDLEY ; GAZETTE,   FEBRUABY 21, .-\WI:  <ir  REVELYVS  S T A B i W  Headquarters for all Stage Lines-  Express Office'in Connection  ���������Your wants for Li very or Team  Work will be attended to'-,  by calling Phone 12.

Many who had laid in a supply  of vegetables to keep them over the  winter and spring have been unfortunate in getting them frozen. Play, oats  potatoes Arc are all at a premium and  hard to get.  Since putting in type the paragraph  with reference to cloud effects, the  Gazette learns chat the men working  on the Kingston had the same view as  those at the Nickel Plate, except that  they were much nearer the cloud mass  which was only a few hendred feet below them. ���������  Mr. Geo.

More people in town  have put up ice this winter than' in  any former season. Cawston &' Ed-  niond, butchers and Dillier & Slier;  baiter, brewers, have probably put. up  the most,-but all the hotels, Shatfords  Limited, the Similkameen bottling  works, the Daly Reduction Co. mess,  and many private houses have, also  laid in :a'. supply.  Royer's stage has not lieen running  very regularly .during the past two  weeks. . For almost a month it. has  been irregular so far as the portion of  the route between Keremeos and Hed-  lley is concerned, but it generally managed to reach Kereniebs. . Last week,  however, it did not even get through  to Keremeos, and there was consider-,  able business in passenger traffic offering for the G. N. R. route owing to unsatisfactory conditions of travel by  the C. P. R.  up Okanagan lake.  The mail service of the past two  weeks has. been a disgrace! No proper effort was made to get the mail  from Summerland to Penticton after  arrival of the boat at the former place,  and as a result;' the Pehticton-Hedley  stage has been pulling out from Penticton without the mail from outside  points. On Tuesday night of last week  there was nothing but local mail, and  Thursday's stage brought only the  mail that was due on Tuesday. Every  stage since then has also been One  mail behind. The express has been  even worse, for there has been no certainty as to the arrival Of express during the past month. This sort of  thing entails serious inconvenience  and loss upon business men.  Mr. J. Percy Watson, who has been  foreman of the Gazette office since  December 1905, left on Monday morning for the coast, bearing with him  the respect, confidence and good-will  of his employers and the people of  Hedley generally. Percy is a good  fellow and a good printer, ;ind had the  interests of the paper and of the' town  as much at heart as his employers  have. Though tin ardent trades-unionist in sentiment, his unionism had  that element of reason and fairness in it and his work was so well  and conscientiously done that it compelled respect for himself and for the  typographical union of which he is a  loyal member. The Gazette and the  people of Hedley wish him prosperity  wherever he mav be.  old site and storing it on Webster St.,'  east of the old butcher shop. 1  Charley Seymour is (lowii with an !"  attack of erysipelas.

Ed. Hatton, one of the progressive  ranchers on Rock Creek, started on a  visit to the old countrv immediately  afr.er-polling his vote for Mr. Shatford.  Ed. has not seen his native heath for  many years, and his present visit will-  doubtless be thoroughly enjoyed by  him.

He succeeded in his purpose and expects to shortly return east and interest capital in the property.���������Spokesman-Review.  An illustration of the excellence of  the mail service in Yale-Cariboo is  that of the six local newspapers published in the electoral districts of  Grand Forks and Greenwood, not a  single copy of one of them published  subsequent to the,election on the 2nd'  of February reached this office before  the Kith.

A  FRENCH. MEMBER  KICKS.  Lavergne of Montmagny Won't  Dance  to Laurier's Fiddle.  Mr. Armand Lavergne, upon a mo-  to go into committee, called attention  to the recent sensational reports, respecting the scene between himself  and the Premier.  He read from Le Soleil an account  of the interview which ho characterized as incorrect.  It was true, however, that Sir Wilfrid Laurier had announoed that he  (Lavergne) was not a ministerial supporter.  CONSISTENT LIBERAL..  kiAs a  member of this House," Mr.  Lavergne declared,   " I  have   been  a  consistent   Liberal,   if   not always a  Government, supporter."  fie had'voted against  the  Govern-  .   uient on the Autonomy  hills.    In so  DOING. HE HAD BEEN. TRUE TO LlHER-  ALLSM. IT WAS Slit WlLKRID LAURIER  AND HIS FOLLOWERS WHO HAD CHANGED THEIR OPINIONS AND ABANDONED  THEIR PRINCIPLES.  He had also voted against the Government on the. question of the North  Atlantic Trading Company. In so  doing, he had but adopted the views  expressed by the present Minister of  the Interior when he was a private  member,  A third vote cast against the Government, was upon the Sunday Bill, in  his opinion the. " Toryest:���������" measure  ever introduced into Parliament.  Mr. Lavergne's fourth and last vote  against the Laurier government, was  upon the French revision of the revised statutes, He had no apology to  make for that vote.  As to matters outside the House he  admitted that lie had supported Mr.  Robitaille. In so doing he had but  defended the right of every riding to  select its own member.  x' .'���������' - -    - ���������  HIS  PUNISHMENT.  Mr. Lavergne pointed out that his  "excommunication" was^uite recent.  He had been asked by the Government  to take part in the. Nicolet by-electioh  last December. It was since then that  the patronage of Montmagny had been  taken from him and transferred.: to  Senator  Choquette.     Tins   was  kis  PUNISHMENT     FOR ' CASTING     A     FEW  INDEPENDENT   VOTES.  Why had not this step been taken  long before? What was to be the  future attitude of the Government?  It might defeat him in Montmagnv.  but public opinion wouid support him,  and in time it would overthrow the  Government.  "Country above party" was the rule  which had characterized his conduct,  and he wished that* it might become :r,  more general rule in public life.  m*H+****m*NHm*  PROPERTY IN HEDLEY  ���������', ."-"'' ' ���������'  A Good,  Safe   Investment  m^vfllAir    *'s the'supply point for the Nickel Plate monn-  ������������������Vlllvj; tain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

Green Mountain, Feb. 18th, 1007.  On Thursday last, W. T. Atherton  noticed fire breaking from the roof of  his residence at Atherton's Corner.  Giving the alarm he was soon joined  by Jas. Battle, and these two experienced fire-fighters-"started in to make  the most of a bad job, for the fire department of Atherton's Corner is  scarcely up to the requirements of the  under-writers and the water supply is  at present altogether inadequate. The  only water at hand was in the solid  form'so they concluded to use snow  instead, and when they once got fairly  under way they made the snow fly in  a. manner that resembled a Manitoba  swirling snow blizzard, which grew in  intensity when the. brigade was increased by another recruit, W. Hain-  ing. In this way the fire was got under control and the building saved,  but not before the roof had been  badly damaged.  NOTICE.  SIXTY DAYS AFTER DATE I intend to  apply to tho Hon.

For years Dr. Shoop has fought  against the use of Opium, Chloroform  or other unsafe ingredients commonly  found in Cough remedies. ' Dr. Whoop,  it seems, has welco'hied the' Pure. Food  and Drug Law : recently enacted, for  he;has worked along similar lines formally vears. For nearly 20 years. Dr.  Shpop's Cough (Jure containers have  had a warning printed on them against  Opium and other narcotic poisons.
