The mayor of Southampton  recently proposed that the Harbor  Board of tbe port should vote a  sum  of  $500,000  to  be spent on  further .widening   and   deepening  the   navigable   channel.

Such terrible  events tend to break the monotony  of life in a country town, and we  could live for ages in Montreal before we could witness such a sight,  except in a cellar. V;, -.-  Mokk care should be taken with  the water system in Greenwood.  Nothing spreads disease faster than  impure water, and during the past  week the fluid supplied us by the  city has been unfit to drink. This  is a vital question and should be  attended to without delay, and in  future greater care should bo taken  with our water supply.  idea of what anarchy really is, and  only borrow the word to cover  their irresponsible vicious instincts;  they havo no more right to the  name of anarchist than a bloody  inquisitor of tho year 1200, pouring molten lead into a heretic's  ear, had a right to call himself a  christian.  I mean the apostles of the vision  that the ideal condition of tho race  is that of having no outward law,  each man been a law-unto himself.  This will undoubtedly be mankind's millennial condition. . It is  in line with the scriptural prophecy  that the days shall come when the  laws shall no more be written  upon tablets, but the Lord shall  write them upon our hearts.  Now, as long as one has this  vision, believes it, and work toward it, yet recognizes the facts  and inperfections of humanity as  it really is today, and seeks to connect hia dream with actual conditions, he is an idealist, and does  us all good.  But when he is so drunk with  his vision that he tells us to smash  all existing society, and that we  are utterly rotten and hopeless,  he is a fanatic. He forgets that  whatever the future of the race is  to be must grow out of the present.  Hifiii Prices  Not a sound is heard these days  about the erection of the postoflice  building in Greenwood. Perhaps  tho government cannot afford to  build it and a navy at the same  time. As tho money for the Greenwood building was appropriated  before the Navy Bill camo into the  ring, we have the right of way  and should not be sidetracked.  The city of Nelson is surrounded  by Doukhobors, and as that city is  divided against itself, the Douks  will gradually creep in and capture its business. Already they  have inserted the wedge by buying  a wood yard, and as time rolls on  the hole will grow bigger, until  nearly all the menial and manual  labor in Nelson will be performed  by the Douks.  Thinking Themes  What is the difference between  the idealist and the fanatic? Simply this, that in the fanatic is a  "missing link." He fails to connect his knowledge of what ought  to be with his knowledge of what  is.  The most beautiful of fanatics is  the anarchist. I do not mean the  depraved creatures who have no  Most of my life is devoted to exposing the absurdity of ancient  and honorable notions.  The most of the accepted and  unquestioned ideas that lie in the  bottom of our minds, and that we  consider as matters of course, are  not true.  One of these, of not much importance perhaps, and yet curiously  irritating to lovers of Italy, is a  hot disagreeable country in the  summer time, and that one should  not dare to go thero except in  winter.  The truth is exactly tho reverse.  Italy is unpleasant in Winter; the  houses are cold and thero is no  provision for warming them; it is  difficult to see real Italian life; all  there is for you is the silly fashionable folks, who are the same the  world over, who congregate in the  steamheated expensive hotels.  In summer the country awakes  and comes ont door to sing and  dance and laugh. It is never bo  hot as in Chicago, New York or  Paris. The nights are always cool;  and it is pleasant in the shade anywhere during the day.  The greatest galleries of pictures,  the churches and places are delightful in summer, bone-cold in  winter.  In summer I had rather be in  Rome than in London, in Naples  than in New York, in Florence  than in Berlin.  Really Italy is an ideal summer  resort.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  Paris. Tho Ciifo Anglais has  lost its lease.  For a century past it has obtained the highest reputation of all tho  restaurants in Paris.  If its wine cellar is to bo sold at  auction in April, tho cable will  flash around the world the prices  fetched by tho last dozen bottles���������  in some cases the last bottle��������� of  historic cms of Bordeau and Burgundy, and who bought them and  who drank them in the past and in  the present.  Because, do not think the Cafe  Anglais failed. Its lease expired,  and it could not obtain a renewal.-  The property belonged to an estate  of minor children, demanding sale  and division and, think, for thirty  years past the Cafe Anglais has  been paying only ������16,000 annual  rent for a live storey building,  where the Grand Cafe pays $25,-  000 for oue floor, and Tiffany, in  a palatial new pile, $75,000 for two  floors!  Think, also, the proprietor of  the Cafe Anglais actually lived in  the two upper floors. No single  restaurant, however illustrious,  can afford���������today���������to monopolize  a rambling old-fashioned building  with ten windows broadside on tbe  Boulevard des Italians, and a corner at that! Tho gastronomic  landmark has been sold ��������� for  destruction.  Will tho wines be sold in April?  All depends on whether tho Cafe  Anglais is to be reformed.

Worst, president of  tho agricultural college of North  Dakota. Ho says that tho farmers  are mining the soil and robbing  future generations every time they  grow a wheat crop and that they  are in reajity producing the crop at  a real cash loss overy year.  "According to the very best  authorities," says Dr. Worst,  "one acre producing 20 bushels of  wheat mines from the soil 44  pounds of potash, worth 0 cents a  pound, or 62.20; twenty pounds of  phosphoric acid, worth four cents  a ponnd or 80 cents, and 42 pounds  of nitrogen, worth fifteen cents a  pound, or 80.30; a total of 80.30  an acre or 46A- cents worth of soil  fertility for every bnshol of wheat  raised.

This brings the actual  cost of a bushel of wheat, including the commercial value of the  constituents removed from the  soil, up to -31.04-J."  Since the average price received  for wheat is much less than this  sum Dr. Worst estimates that the  annual loss to tho farmers of this  country runa well into the hundreds of millions on their wheat  crop. The loss in Worth Dakota  through the fertility alone which  was removed by the wheat last  year, says Dr. Worst, will amounj;  to $70,000,000. Dr. Worst is  vice-president of the International  Dry-Farming Congress.   His   fig  ures are so startling in thoir indication that the future of the Ameri-  ican farmer must depend largely  upon feeding crops and on the re-  t urn of the manure to the soil that  a discussion of the subject will be  made a special order of business at  the annual meeting of the Congress  in Tulsa, Oklahoma, next October.

ARE YOU GOING TO LAW? 1  Bettor   Consult    a    Physician    Before  Rushing into Court.  There Is food for thought ia the suggestion of Russell Duane, one of tha  [ leaders ot the Philadelphia bar, for a  short cut to the simplification of judicial procedure and the clearing of unimportant cases from the dockets of  the courts.   His idea is that most persons who think they have a legal grier-  ance should consult a doctor, not a lawyer.    In effect, he snys that 00 per  cent of the cases brought into court are  the result of an unhealthy liver.  Mr. Duane said that lawyers should  advise most of their clients to go to a  doctor before going to court Then  there would be very little litigation. It  would be better for the public, probably, but not so good for the lawyers.  As a matter o'f fact, however, lawyers are tending more and more toward  settling cases out of court   In some  countries in tlio far east it is tbe practice to pay doctors for keeping their  clients in good health.   As soon as the*  patient grows sick  the doctor's  pay  ceases.    It is to Ills interest to hurry  tlie (in(lent back to health.   The people  of lhe United States have not yet reached that point, but they tire nearing it.  Corporations today no longer hire lawyers to get them out of trouble.   They  hire lawyers by the year to keep them  out of trouble.   The lawyers who now  receive tlie highest fees are those who  do uot fight tlieir battles in court, but  wlio keep tlieir clients out of court  After awhile individuals will try to  keep out of court, too, and will pay  bigger fees for prevention thnn for  cure. Probably it is an exaggeration to  say that flu per cent of tho litigants  should consult a doctor Instead of a  lawyer, but it is certain that most litigants need a doctor when they get the  lawyer's bill, anyhow, so they might as  well consult tlie family physician In the  first place. If lie is a man of common  sense he will advise his patient to settle his grievances outside of court-  Washington Post.

A Massive Steel Structure to Span the  Sacrod River.  The task of bringing the Ganges, the  great river of northern India which  Issues from an ice cave at the foot of  the Himalayan snow bed, has been  assigned to a group of English engineers.  This bridge, which is over a mile in  length, is to carry the Eastern Bengal  State railway over the Ganges from  Damukelia lo Sarti Ghat, the place of  pilgrimage to which hundreds of thousands of devout Hindus repair once a  year to wash away their sins in the  sacred river.  Spanning the river, the bridge-will  be carried on sloel trestles, which in  turn will be supported on massive steel  grilles in granite piers. The contract  consists of fifteen main'spans, each  359 feet long and 52 feet high and  weighing 1,300 tons.  The Ganges is essentially a river of  great cities.   Calcutta. Patna, Benares  and Allahabad all  lie ou its course,  and the ancient capitals of Agra and  Delhi  are on  the Jumna,  higher up.  j Great changes take place from time to  time in the river bod of the Ganges,  which considerably alter the face of  the   country.     Extensive   islands   are  then  thrown   up, aud  many decayed  and ruined cities (hat aro then discovered attest the changes in the river  bed in ancient times.

From (J.000 hens' eggs Dr. Wiilstater.  with the assistance of Dr. Esch, has  succeeded   in    extracting   about   an  eighth of an ounce of tbe matter that  makes tho yolk of the egg yellow. This  pigment has uow been obtained in a  pure crystalline state, so thnt its chemical  composition  may   be  determined  as well as its peculiar properties.   The  yellow belongs to the same class of  pigments as tho green of leaves-ran-  thophyl.   In plants and In animals Will-  stater has found two distinct series of  pigments.    In ono of these series the  substances are soluble in benzine and  consist of carbon and hydrogen.   The  yellow of the carrot is a good example  of this class of pigments.   In the other  series each molecule contains in addition two atoms of oxygen.   These pigments are soluble in alcohol.   The yellow of the egg and xantbophyl belong  to the latter group.-Harper's.

All tho old time miners state  that the best part of the ground in  Conklin's Gulch was never worked,  owing to the miners being unable  to contend with the enormous  bodies of slum surrounding the  channel; but with the establishment of a modern hydraulickiug  plant this difficulty will uot have  to be contended with.���������South  Fort George Herald.  "Good Lord! there Is an old woman  up our way who owns a hill of it  and I married her."  MIDWAY COAL  The stockholders of the President,'Senate and Congress mining  claims, situated thirty-five miles  smith of Republic, are making  preparations to resume immediate  operations of those properties.  A majority of the stock is held  by residents of Providence, N.J.  This group of claims was located  and developed by the. late J. H.  Hopkins. They are said to be the  richest nickel properties in the  world, and a few years ago Mr.  Hopkins was offered 8100,000 for  his holdings by the nickel trust.  Tin's lie refused, and his declining  years were spent in an impoverished condition, dying at last  about a year ago, a subject of  charity.���������Republic News-Miner.  A rich strike of gold has been  mndo during the last two weeks on  Conklin's Gulch, one mile northeast of Barkerville, by Robert Buchanan, John Bell, L. D. Muller  and Martin Schilling, four well-  known local mining men, paydirt  having been struck running from  4 ozs., ������72 to C ozs. 8108, to the  set.  These men have been working  all winter on their claims, sinking  a shaft a depth of forty-five feet to  . the bedrock, and running tunnels  iu different directions to locate the  old channel where the paydirt lies.  Owing to the slow and laborious  method employed at the present  time to the handling of the dirt, by  moans of running it out to the foot  of tho shaft by a hand car and then  Iu writing about the Trail smelter the  Rossland Miner says that  in tho lead refinery 2-12 tanks  are  in operation, turning out about 05  tons  a  day.    There are some S-l  tanks, which wero recently installed, but which are not yet in   use.  With   these   in   operation,    more  than 100 tons of lead a day  could  be outputted.    All of tho load refined, amounting to 1,S00  tons  a  month,   or  21,000  tons a year, is  consumed now in Canada,   and  is  shipped from the refinery all over  the  Dominion,   from  sea  to   sea.  None is exported at present, as the.  demand is keeping up with the supply.    Two largo, concerns in Montreal are engaged in making  white  ead  out of tbe lead   sent   from  Trail refinery.    The silver turned  out of the refinery is sent to the  Orient.      The sulphate of copper  produced as a by-product in the re-  finery, is sent to the prairies where  it is usedin   blue-stoning   wheat,  killing thegerms of smut and other  diseasesof   wheat   before   it    was  planted.    The gold turned out of  the refinery is sent to the assay  office at Vancouver.  The refinery, which was started  in 1902 with a capacity of eight  tons a day and twenty-five tanks,  has grown since to its present  large proportions of over 100 tons  a day. It has resulted in the production of lead sufficient to supply  all of Canada. Up to the time  this refinery began to turn out refined lead, all the lead used in  Canada was imported from other  countries. J. F. Miller is the  superintendent of the refinery, and  has been in charge of it from its  beginning.  TO MINING INVESTORS  Last week about ;iifty shareholders of the Boundary Mining  & Exploration company attended  the annual meeting in Midway.  At present, fourteen men are employed at the coal mine which is  about threo. miles from Midway  and twelve miles west of Greenwood. A compressor, hoists and  pumps are now being installed, and  the company expects to be shipping  coal  next fall.  The election of the new officers  resulted as follows: A. E. Watts  of Wattsburg, president and general managerr A. Carney of Kaslo  and S. J. Miller of Grand Forks.,  vice-presidents; E. R. J.

On being informed later that there was nothing but iron pyrites and not worth  a cent, the astonished  prospector  Senator Elihu Root's onion  story, told at a ron-nt dinner, is an  illustration of tlio difficulty of concealing evil pi-ae.tic.es.'  '���������Take the. case," said Mr. Root,  of old John Bodewin. John was a  lawyer's conlido.ut.ial clerk and he  had the pernicious habit or going  to a neighboring saloon oyery  morning at 11 o'clock and taking a,  small glass of whiskey. He was  not proud or this habit; ho.nco,  after tho, whiskey, he always took  a clove.'  "But it happened one morning  that there were, no cloves on the  bar, and John, after having considered the matter, ate a small  onion from tho. free, lunch tray.  That would destroy tho, tell talc-  whiskey odor, no doubt, as well as  the clove had always done, and so  thinking ho returned to his desk.  It was a double desk. At it lie  and his employer sat face to face.  John on his return was soon aware  that his employer noticed something. The man's nostrils quivered, he sniffed, and finally with a  grimace  of  disgust he broke out:  "Look here, John, I've stood  whiskey and cloves for nineteen  years, but I draw the line at whiskey and onions."���������New York  Herald.

Tho now variety which is  known as "Prelude," was obtained  by cross-fertilization of the most  hardy grades, and will not only  grow in the northern districts of  Canada, but will ripen from eight  to ten days earlier than any of the  others. By producing a grain that  will stand the cooler climate of the  north, Mr. Saundo.r's success will  make it possible to grow wheat in  millions of acres in the Northwest  and other districts where tho land  has boon previously undeveloped,  because no wheat plants could  stand the coolness.���������Colonist.

Then just think how distressing it  must ho to have a cough hang on for  three months.  Mrs. Maria Primrose, of 87 Newell  Street, Brooklyn, N. Y., says: "I had  a very heavy cold which settled into  a chronic cough, which kept mo  awake nights for fully three months,  and felt tired all the time because my  rest was broken so much. The effect  of taking your cod liver and iron remedy, Vinol, is that my cough is gone.  I can now get a good night's rest, and  I feel much stronger in every way."  It is the combined action of the  medicinal elements, cods' livers, aided  by the blood-making and strength-  creating properties of tonic iron which  makes Vinol so efficient in curing  chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis  ���������at the same time building up tho  weakened, run-down system.  Try a bottle of Vinol, with the understanding that your money will  be returned  it'  it dor-s not help you.  j. It. White, Druggist, Greenwood, B.

The Anaconda leads all other  mines in the United States by a  wido margin. ��������� There are a few  mines in Utah which produce  slightly: over a million (Jounces of  silver a year nnd these aro known  as lead-silver mines.  The Anaconda, which is famous  for its copper production,' probably  is not appreciated, even by its  own stockholders as a factor in tho  production of silver and it will surprise many to read here for the  first time that its silver output is  of such large proportions.  On the averago price of silver  thus far in 1913, tho Anaconda's  silver output would yield about  $5,SOO,OO0 for tho year. In addition to this tho Anaconda recovers  about 50,000 ounces of gold annu-  lly thereby adding upwards of  SI.000,000 more to its income from  precious metals which is simply a  by-product.  The output of tho Anaconda, of  course, includes some custom ore  from a few of the independent raining companies in Silver Bow country, but tho entire custom ore is  only a small percentage of the  whole.
