One of I be best proofs of  tbe  value
1 of the Kootj;.\ay   Mail as  an  adver-
\ tising medium  is the  fact that,  the
] Hoyal    Baking     Powder     Company,
j which is one of the largest advertising
j linns   on   tbe    American    continent",
finds the rcsulls  of  advertising in the
Mail so satisfactory that, it has ipiad-
ruplcd    its  advertising  space.      This
i linn   is    guided    solely   by   business
'''eMills and not sentiment in   placing
I its advertising, and   has decided 'that
the Kootk.vay Mail is the most widely
! circulated   and   most  valuable  iidvcr-
j tising   medium   in   North   Kootcnay.
1 Local linns who do   not carry a space
in our columns would do well' to fake
the hint gained   from such   wide' experience as that of the  Hoyal   baking

We have   on  several  occasions  pointed out the anomalies' in  the  tariff  of  the ; Dominion    Express  Company,   Another   instance' ha^  just come under our notice.'     An  article costing 50 cents was charged  up with $2.10 express charges.    It  weighed   ten    pounds,  the freight  being 21 cents per pound.    Had it  weighed seven pounds  the charges  would have  been $1.00, or 6.1 cents  per pound less.    The railway .committee should insist on the railway  companies providing  a  parcel   express at freight rates with suflicient  addition to pay the cost of messengers.    Certainly stale-owned   railways would .not long tolerate such  a system of extortionate, charges as  that now carried on hy the expre.-s  companies.  Id  S  -X  WUi- Rbrobdmsor?

Tin-  proposal is that, the bill should  apply to'railways, but if the principle is good for the railway service  it ought to, be good for every other  branch of industry and should be  applied accordingly. The measure  proposes to ensure to employees  fair wages and' conditions, while it  is also a precaution against unfair  terms being dictated to railway  officials at the cost of tying up a  road and causing public inconvenience. The labor department  makes the excellent suggestion that  between now'and next"'session of  Parliament the bill should be fully  discussed by the labor unions with  a view to making'its provisions as  effective as possible.  -^vM������  -j  mst  REVELSTOKE, B.

Two-Storey, Brick Building Proposed.  At city council on Monday the  school trustees asked council to  submit a by-law for $8,000 to supplement Government,.grant of ���������li;]0-  000 to enable a two-storey brick  school to be erected; the building to  contain eight rooms and estimated  to cost $17,358. Plans and detailed  estimates accompanied application.  Aid. Hume was in favor of a  brick school, and that a by-law be  submitted. The estimates were  greater than he expected.  , Aid. McLcod said the question  ���������was whether.they could afford to  undertake a work,of this kind when  the city had no water and li^ht  supply. If lhat were provided he  would certainly ' favor a brick  school. '  Aid. Law said it would be a fine  thing to have a brick school, but at  pre.*-i*nt lhe city was without protection against lire, which was  really a first consideration.  Aid. Manning urged putting up  a first-class school:liouse instead of  patching present building. They  had $10,000 available and should  use it to best advantage.  ' Aid. Taylor considered by-law  should be submitted to the ratepayers. A good school building  was most iniportaiit. lie agreed  with Aid. Manning as to inadvisu-  hility of patching up present buildings.. . ��������� |  The Mayor was in fa'vor of  having a <kkxI l.nildiim. Of course  they would not float any more  debentures than necessary if the  work could 1'0 done for less than  the estimate.  Mr. Floyd, on behalf of the  trustees, urged asking for $S,000,  and , submitting matter to ratepayers at all events. The Govcrn-  ment.wowld not pass the plans for  a $10,000 building, as no ���������doubt  they expected_ the city to supplement the grant.     ,       o  Aid. McLcod favored'submitting  'matter to ratepayers.  Mr. Floyd: The trustees wish to  obtain -feeling of the,ratepayers on  the matter.  A petition was presented from  the requisite number of ratepayers  asking by-law be submitted io raise  $8,000 to supplement amount  available for proposed building.

They include extensive greenhouses and hothouses, as  well as grounds on both sides of  the Avenue, in which are raised all  kinds of fruit and forest- trees and  flowering plants. Under glass the  Easter lily is to he found in blooni  at,all seasons of the vear; there are  fine specimens of cacuis, hydrangea  with blooms as much as a foot in  diameter, new palms from Japan,  ferns, pelargoniums, rhododendrons, and nil the favorite pot and  window blooms.  ;' At Mr. Henry's^ nurseries .lapan  and Holland' may be said to meet,  for'exfensiv'c shipments of stock are  'continuously being received frpm  these celebrated homes,,of horticulture. A specialty is' now being  made of Japanese ferns, sent out  in fancy designs, and constituting  a decided novelty in house gardening;  Near the oflice. is the pin-king  house'and s-oed room.
