At a meeting in Midway last Friday  the Farmer's Institute decided to hold  their first' fair in Midway. Greenwood  made a bid for the fair but was voted  down by members from other parts of the  district.  There are no blanks in a box of K &  H cigars. They all draw and omit an  aroma that perfumes the ozone when set  ou fire. It is ever a pleasure"1 to follow a  man who is smoking a K & H'cigar. Try  one and be convinced.  Oil in good quantities has been found  about 40 miles west of Ashcroft along the  Thompson river. It was found in shale  and made a good test. The claims are  owned by John McGillivary, George  Chatawav and A. M. Leitch.;  A Vigorous General   '  General^ Charles S. "Warren, of -Butte,  Montana, is a man you don't meet every  day. He was with Sherman and marched  through Georgia in the days when the  North and South did not play sluff together. After the war he came west and  chased the redskins out of -Montana.  Then he was made the first police magis  trate of Butte in the days when horse  thieves and check lifters were thicker  thad 'coons at a watermelon fair. He  made an immense fortune, got ambitious  and went to New York to show the Wall  Street boys how they did things in Butte.  He lost $590,000 against the bear game  and had to hike west in search of more  ammunition. He was. a cheerful loser  and came back to Butte just as fat, rosy  and jolly as ever. Iu the flush days of  Rossland the general moulded himself  into the history of that camp and will  never be forgotten by the old timers.  Lately he has been in California where  he is interested in the coming greatest  gold mine on earth.. Although Charley  is not much over too years 01 age -he is  lively as ever, and his friends have come  to the conclusion that he will never die.  Thc world needs more Charley Warrens.  Western Float  The Royal Seal cigar has been before  the smoking public for a dozen years.  It is made in Nelson and can be bought  iu nearly every mountain town.  - Boom at Stewart.  As is usual with new mining camps  there is a boom at .Stewart. Within a  month the number of buildings in the  townsite at the head of Portland Canal  have been doubled, and when the snow  leaves the ground it is anticipated there  will be a big building boom. Lumber is  going into the place from every northern  mill, as well as from Victoria and Vancouver. The Georgetown, Prince Rupert  and Swanson Bay mills send lumber to  Stewart on every steamer.  Ou Salmon River, across the British  Columbia border, a townsite has been  staked by some enterprizing Americans  on the mudflats. They have staked the  mudflats over a considerable area and  state that they intend to dyke it ancl reclaim the tide lauds. There-is a rush  on to this place from Ketichican, Juneau  and other ports.  At Stewart there was much exc:tcment  over the finds made on the property of  the Stewart Mining and development  Company of free milling gold. The residents are also awaiting the arrival of the  construction parties for the government  wharf, for which an appropriation of  $15,000 has been provided, aud for the  building of the railroad by Mackenzie &  Mann.  Mitts, gloves, bats, balls, masks and  other baseball goods can be bought at  Cole's Book Store.  .Kootenay Marble.  Referring to the marble deposit at  Lardeau an eastern paper states: There  are billiotis of cubic feet of marble there,*,  and, judging from" what has been un-  couvered, of the finest quality. The  whole mountain appears to be of nnrble.  White marble,"blue marble, aud variegated marble have all been exposed by  the preliminary quarrying. Here and  there we have found portions equal to  the finest Carrara statuary marble.  -The K & II cigar has jumped into  prominence through the excellent flavor  of the tobacco out of which it is made.  About Comets.  Iu the last half of the last century 121  comets, including returns, penetrated the  sphere of the earth's orbit. From this  Prof. Pickering infers that we should  expect to be struck by the core of a  visible comet once in about 40,000,000  years, and by some portion of the head  once in 4,000,000 years. Since comet's  orbits are more thickly distributed near  the ecliptic than in other regions of the  sphere, the collisions would occur rather  more frequently than this, but hardly  as often as once in 2,000,000 years, and  since it has been estimated that animal  animal life has existed upou the earth for  about 100,000,000 years, a considerable  number of collisions, perhaps as many as  fifty, must have taken place during that  interval, in Prof. Pickering's opinion,  evidently without producing any very  serious results.���������Scientific American.

' G. B; TAYLOR, - v>  Greenwood," April 13,19IQ,    City Clerk.  James D. Sword, L. Patrick and .-Sam  Silverman are working on a scheme to  build a smelter on the east shore of  Walker lake in Nevada. They have  "enlisted English capital and arc confident  that the plant will be erected iu a short  time.  , Owing to the fact that several men are  employed by the U. C. Copper Co. who  do not belong to thc Greenwood Miner's  Union a strike was declared against the  company and went into effect last Tuesday. , '1 he union was iu favor of a strike  by over two-thirds majority. .The smelter and Mother Lode mine are now  closed dow:'.  The License Question.  ' At a meeting of the hotel men in.this  city the following resolution was carried  unanimously:-  Resolved���������-That it is the sense of this  meeting that owing to the loss incurred  by those hotel meu going put of business,  and-the additional cost of partially remunerating -the same; together with'the  increased cost of license to those remaining in the business that the license commissioners of this city leave the matter ol  the hotels in its present status.  All the hotel men signed this resolution with the exception- of Greigg and  Morrison. : If tbe commissioners take no  notice to tbia resolution then the hotel-  keepers will tender for thc licenses, the  licenses to be granted to thc five who put  up the most money to indemnify those  shut out of the'business.  Andrew Caruegie's philosophy finds  reiders principally because of the  millions he possesses. The public mind  works something after this fashion:���������  If this man has brains enough to make  himself the steel-master of the world, he  has brains enough to say some wise  thing about life. Let an unknown whose  life has been spent in the realm of  thought, aud not in the marts of trade,  utter Carnegie's statements, and he  would wait in vain for a listener, let  alone newspaper space. For it is true  that the possession of means does act as  recommendation of a man's ability and  sanity^ When George Washington was  being ridiculed in a great assembly as a  farmer-soldier, someone arose and mentioned the amount of George Washington's annual income, and instantly a  wave of respect for the insurgent swept  thc men who worshipped money. James  Russell Lowell, (or was it Oliver Wendell  Holmes?) u<ed to say that a minister  with an independent income was a more  forceful teacher than one who had to  depend ou the contributions of those he  taught. And so with Carnegie; he is  raised above the necessity of thinking,  talking and writing for money; the people  listen to him, therefore, expecting ail  untrainmeled word, a vision unbound by  policy or necessity.���������Farmer's Tribune.  If thc strike continues any length of  time, it will have the effect of spoiling  the Mother Lode and Greenwood'baseball matches.  Rupe's First Mayor.  The first civic election "will take place"  in Prince Rupert upon May 16 The  Empire is boosting Fred Stork for the  mayoralty, and painting his supposed  virtues in rosy colors. Fred is a red coat  worshipper mid dearly loves to smell the  powder of blank cartridges. When,  mayor of Fernie he was the tool of 111011-  nopoly, and his actions in thnt city denoted the possession of a narrow .mind.  He may have improved since he went  north, although it |s seldom such men  conquer themselves. In a corporeal  sense he is suited for Riipe. As a municipal statesman he will not assay much  more than country rock, mixed wiih considerable gall and ambition-  Merritt will hold its first fair next fall.

Alexander, president of the International Metallurgical Company, of the  same place.  The object of the company will be  better understood by metal men, particularly when it is stated that it controls for .  Canada the Xaxeres process for the extraction of 'm-.tal from gold and'silver  ores. The process cau be operated with"  very small and cheap installation-anywhere there is ore to treat, and it can* -  handle, ores that are refractory to a  smelter. .' .      .

We have men on the job who have  placed every tinhorn and pimp and we are'  going to give them a chance to go south.  If any of them are here after the next  boaL goes south, we will send them south  at the expense of the department and  will probably find them a summer job at  \\ estminster.

Joe Marti u, who deserted his own  country in order to get more air for his  egotism by posing as a politician in  England told a bunch of Britishers the  other day in Whilefield'.s Tabernacle that  English land ought to he taxed on the  basis of what it could be sold for, as in  Canada, and not as at present, on thc  basis of the rent. He also said that hospitals ought to be supported by the state,  I so that the poor cauld obtain assistance  as a right and not be made paupers as  now. Liquor licenses, Mr. Martin said,  being granted by the Slate, the State  should be free to revoke them without  compensation to the holders.  As a matter of common sense  State should always make good any  to individuals sustained through  change1' of actions. 111 Canada the  fortunate rumseller has a hard time,  he does not buy a menagerie with  own booze he is liable to be turned  of doors any time the wind of caprice,  or moral reform blows against the chaps  who'deal the license game.

Another Modern Miracle  Paralysis Permanently Cured  The Sufferer Paralysed From Waist to Feet���������Encased in  Piaster of Paris for Nine Months--Dr. Williams' PinK  Pills Cure After Four Doctors Had Failed���������The Cure  , Vouched for by a Well Known Clergyman.  Paralysis, no matter how slight, is a' they made a remarkable change in  terrible affliction, but to be paralyzed  from waist to the feet, to be a helpless  cripph,-totally dependent upon what  others do for you, is a condition as  wretched as man could possibly bear.  Such was the state,oi Mr. Allan J. Mc  Donald, of'Rice Point..P.E.I, For over  a year he was a helpless imalid. He  was paralysed from his w-iist to his  feet and for nine months' ]ay' in b������d  encased in a, plaster of paris cast.  Four of the. best doctors in Prince  -Edwiud Island were unable to help  lini and lie seemed .doomed for a life  me. I was able to got out of bed and  crawl along the floor on my hands  and knees. Gradually my limbs became stronger. ' Scon 1 could walk  with the aid of a eane and inside of  nine months after I had begun the  use of the Pills I was totally cured,  and once more able to do light work.,  Now I am as strong as ever I was  and can do my work about the farm  without the l������ast trouble.'- I think Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are without an  equal, for, besides my own case, I  know of two ot'i.cr cases of paralysis  of misery" and^ despair.

Stocking Dye Caused Poison  A case at Kingston shows vividly  the danger of neglecting to apply  Zam-Buk to a cut or sore. Mrs. A.  Harrison, living in Place d'Armes,  while attending, to her - household  duties, struck her ankle against a  charp projection "on the furniture. She  took no notice of tlie injury, deeming  it trivial. In a day or tworthe ankle  began'to swell and cause'excessive  pain. A doctor, called in, found that  dye 'from her stocking had entered  the' wound and set up blood poison.  Treatment with Zam-Buk followed,  but it was several days before the  limb was out of danger. "Had it not  been for the powerful antiseptic properties of Zam-Buk and its exceptional  healing virtues', thc wound might have  had a vury serious result," says Mrs.  Harrison. "But I believe if I'had applied Zam-Buk at the time of the injury, it would have prevented the  blood-poisoning altogether."  He drew his money from the bank,  Because  he  feared  a  crash.  The bank is where it always was;  Alas!-where is his cash?  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had done  for other sufferers from paralysis. He  procured a supply of *hc Pills and .began taking . them.' Gradually they  broke the chains of disease that bound  him, and filled the whole body with  new .blood, life and vigor Mr. McDonald says:���������"I am a farmer'and in  consequence have a great deal of hard  work to do. ��������� One day while about my  work 1 injured my. back, but at the  time'I paid little attention to the injury and continued my work. As time  went on, though, Lue. p-ain' became  more severe -ancl 1 soon found myself  unable to lift anything no matter now  .light. It was not long beiore 1 had  to stop work altogether and consult  a doctor. He' treated me but his  treatment did not help me and I.rapidly grew worse.- 1 had to take to  my bed, and in the hope that my spine  might receive strength I was encased  in a' plaster of paris cast. This did  not help me and I could feel the  paralysis slowly creeping over me  till 1 was totally paralysed from my  waist to my feet. I lost all control  over my bowels and bladder and my  legs had no more feeling than if they  .were made of wood. Three other doctors strived to cure me, but their  treatment also was a failure, and for  eleven months I lay in bed unable to  move.' Dr.-Williams' Pink Pills wore  then advised and I-was* shown testimonials of others who had been cured  of" paralysis through them. I bought  a supply and in less than three months  ed to try the Pills*  In corroboration of what Mr. 'Mc  Donald says, the Rev. D. MacLean, of  Charlottetown, P.E.I., writes:���������"I visited Mr. McDonald may times during his illness. He was attended by  three or more doctors and put in plaster of paris, and everything imaginable  which -might be of benefit was done  for him without success. He had lost  all power of his body from his waist  down and I think he was nearly a  year under treutment before he began  to use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. 1  was with him the first day he moved  his big toe and from that time on he  gradually improved and .for the last  few years ho has been perfectly well.  I can vouch for the cure Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills effected in his case."  If you aie sick and thc treatment  you are now- taking does not help  you, give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a  fair trial. They have cured thousands  after doctors and other medical treatment had hopelessly failed.' These  Pills actually make new, rich, red  blood, feed the starved nerves and  bring health and strength to every  part of the body. This is why Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills cure such apparently hopeless cases as Mr. McDonald's, and it is why they have  cured thousands and thousands of  sick, discouraged people in every part  of the world.

"My Rheumatism and Diabetes wero  brought on by a cold and a strain,  and though I was attended by a doctor he could not help me.

Dodd's Kidney Pills cured Mrsr  Richard's Diabetes because Diabetes  is a Kidney Disease, and Dodd's Kidney Pill's cure all Kidney Diseases.  Mrs: Richard's Rheumatism was  caused by her diseased Kidneys failing to take the uric acid out of her  blood.
