LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD, APRIL 10, 1913.  A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that the editor would once more  liko ,to commune with your collateral.  You can have a high time with-  out buying a biplane.  Kill fear, and you can skin tbe  game to a beautiful roseate finale.  Tins must be a beautiful spring,  for winter takes such a long time  to wiggle out of its lap.  "Two in the water, easy," does  not mean a shipwreck. It simply  moans two soft boiled eggs.  We have never known an optimistic and progressive business  man who did not advertise in the  local papers.  Some great men havo smoked  cigarets, but in nearly every instance they had become great before they acquired the habit.  ' ���������  It was forty-eight years ago  yesterday since tho blue and the  gray stacked their guns, and  ceased to vibrate the ozone with  leaden messengers of death.  Of that however, I am not so  sure.  For if the heart be still young  with the currents of love it will  make even the decrepit body beautiful. Indeed I think nothing is  more lovely than a werm soul  alive in an old body. .  One of the most charming pictures of history is that the venerable Saint John, the Evangelist,  who when he was too feeble to do  anything else, would sit in his  chair and pronounce the benediction at the meeting of the early  church, saying only: "Little  children, love one another."  The hockey rooter has been put  to sleep, but tho baseball fan is  just coming over the hill. Thus  our auditory nerves havo little  chance to repose, unless we are  deaf.    We have often been tempted  during the past thirty days to  sing, "Come, Gentle Spring!" but  we did not, and you see the result.  The green onions are still hugging  tho hot-house, and nary a hen has,  as yet, done any advertising in our  backyard.  The world still moves on, although Pierpom* Morgan has been  dead for nearly a week. He died  of starvation in a luxurious Roman  hotel, although he had the price of  many meals in the bank. He was  born with a silver spoon in his  mouth which he changed to gold  before his death. He was a great  financier and a lover of art, but  all his wealth could not stand off  Death which reduceB all of us to  tho samo size.  The true philosophy of laughter  has never been written. All learned books on the subject I have  read are merely discussions of the  comic. But laughter has farther  reaches than that. We not only  laugh at- jokes and capers but our  best laughing is from Bheer joy of  life.  Little children laugh at nothing,  just as young lambs and puppies  frisk; it is because they tingle  with life-currents, thoy are surcharged with electric animality.  And in us grown people thero is  tho same kind of glee-expression, a  deep laughter of tho spirit, that  often never gets so far as a smile  on the lips.  Laughter is the sign of life  powei% It is tho foam that breaks  upon the crest of life's hugest  waves. It is tho'' noise of the  fountain of creative power. It is  the war-shot of the soul trium-.  phant.   *v  This inward jocularity and lightness always comes when we see a  great truth, when we touch the  heart of nature, when wo glimpse  God, or when we are made aware  of our own ability.  Beware of any so called truth  that does not sparkle in the sun.  Beware of any man who has no  treasures of concealed mirth.���������Dr.  Frank Crane.  Western Hemlock  Thinking Themes  "Faites, O mon Dieu, que je ne  survive pas mon coeur!���������Grant O  my God, that I do not outlive my  heart!" cried the Frenchman.  Why live when one no longer  cares?  Life is a burden that is only  tolerable when there is love.  Man has so many wants, ambitions, longings and dreams, that,  unless he has love to steady and  comfort him, the very business of  living is like to rack him to pieces.  Tho only way to a successful old  age is to see that tho heart does  not dio.  ���������'The heart docs not age," said  Voltaire, "but it is sad for it to  have to lodge in a rnin."  The   British   Columbia   Forest  Service   has  data   showing  that  Western hemlock which is being  cut in increasing quantities on the  coast,  is a much more  valuable  timber     than     was    heretofore  thought.   The sale is   increasing  throughout the provinces.   Some  companies have placed it on the  prairie market in successful competition  with Douglas fir,  on account of the lower freight rato and  the relatively  smaller danger  of  splitting in nailing.   This   latter  reason   makes   it   acceptable  for  jointing and   siding.    At present  tho principal  use of  hemlock in  British Columbia is in pulp manufacture,  great areas in the north  being cut over to supply this growing industry.  Authentic data are lacking with  regard to the durability of western  hemlock as compared with Douglas  fir and other woods, The general  impression is that Douglas fir ia  the more durable. A few experiments made to determine the  adaptability of western hemlock to  treatment with liquid preservation  indicate that, as compared to  Douglas fir, it oilers about the  samo resistance to impregnation  across tho grain; but that it is  easier to ponetrato along tho grain.  Western hemlock is well suited  for use in all but tho, heaviest construction. work, as shown by re-.,  suits of tests which have been  made, but up to the present time  it has had a limited use in bridges  and . trestles. It has been used in  some instances for caisson construction.  A considerable amount is cut  into cross ties. Many of the western railroads use Douglas lir, western larch, redwood, and western  hemlock exclusively for tie material. A large percentage of those  ties are laid without preseratlve  treatment. Occasionally it is cut  into telephone or telegraph poles,  but its use in this form has been  very limited. It has the requisite  strength for pole use and grows in  such dimensions as to .make it  very suitable for this class of work.  With a good treatment with  some efficient preserving fluid it  should give good service as a pole  material.  Though practically all piling in  the province is of Douglas fir,  western hemlock is used to a limited extent, however, for this class  of work and has apparently given  satisfaction.  In house construction it is used  a great deal as a farming material.  For this class of work it serves as  well as Douglas fir, and locally  commands the same price. Western hemlock dimension stock- in  cargo shipments commands a lower  price, however, than Douglas lir,  because of the prejudice which exists against it.  When cut edge grain it makes  an excellent flooring material. It  finsihes smoothly on account of the  uniform texture of the wood and it  also wears evenly. It is hot suitable for use in damp places on account of its tendency to warp under such conditions.  As a finish lumber it has the advantage of containing practically  no pitch; it has a beautiful grain,  works smoothly, takes stain readily, aud when properly dried, will  not shrink or swell materially under normal conditions. It presents a comparatively hard surface  and consequently does not mar  easily.  Western hemlock slabs and edgings are manufactured into lath,  and as lath material it is equally  as valuable as Douglas fir or other  wood. In this form there is no  distinction made as to species, all  pieces of a suitable form to make  lath being thrown in together and  used indiscriminately.  It is used to a large extent for  barrels and boxes for shipping foodstuffs. For this purpose it serves  admirably, since tho wood is odorless and tasteless. A great devel  opment along this line may be  looked for when British Columbia  consumers realize the true value of  the wood, and cease wasting it as  We have a vast quantity of dry lumber on  hand; enough to build a sidewalk across the  continent; strong enough to build a Canadian  Navy and dry enough to build a second Ark  for Noah.  We want to move this with celerity in order  to keep our saws dissecting the logs that are  still intact, and have made the prices that will  create a rush. Buy direct from us and your  bank-roll will not suffer from undue depletion.

You can'teach yourself to swim, and  you can do it in an hour or less. I  know plenty of people who have donci  It by following carefully these directions- ' .-  First and foremost, fix this thought  clearly In your mind���������the water will  bear you up. ��������� It is fear and struggle  that Invariably send a person to the  bottom. The best way to acquire confidence that makes for courage and fun  is, go squarely and. reasonably at it  Begin In still water; the old swimming pool on the farm is Just the place.  Wade out until your shoulders are covered, 'squat a little and get yourself  wet all over.  Don't be the least atom afraid, even  If a little water does get into your nose  und'ears; wade out a little farther until you are up to your ehin.'and now  your toes will begin to leave the bottom of the pool. Do not be alarmed.  This shows you that you are a little  lighter than the water. Now lift your  <-hest and with the muscles of your  stomach breathe deep, stretch your  anus out to form the letter T of yourself, stiffen your backbone and hollow  your buck as though suddenly you were  u very important and dignified person.  Your toes hnve come up to the surface  now. Lean your head ba'ck freely as  far as you can, keeping your month  shut.  Lie back with absolute confidence,  und there you are floating. Keep your  backbone stiff, gently paddle with your  liunds. and you are swimming. Make  toward the shore, of course. Then try  It nil over again. This lime kick with  your feet geutly; strong strokes might  turn you over and frighten you.' Keep  your Im lance and practice two or three  times iu straight succession.-  The nest thing that you will be learning Is the "V" stroke. Kick out until  both legs are like the letter V, shut  them together like the blades of a pair  of scissors (which give a strong drive  ahead), then draw them up sidewlse  like a frog 'ana kick persistently out  again. Then try making your legs go  ns if you were climbing up stairs. Always remember the water will bear  you up, and the great and only difficulty about swimming will be out of  your way.���������Christian Herald.

Interchange of Compliments  tween Grant and Lee.  Toward the end of the war between  the states tbe value of a well organized  scout service came to be fully appreciated by the leaders of both armies.  Perhaps no commanders of modern  times were better served in this respect than General Grant and General  Lee. Both were kept informed daily as  to nearly everything that went on within tbe enemy's lines.  General Gordon related that one  morning toward the end of the long  conflict, when the Confederates, officers  and men alike, werei reduced to unpleasant straits for food, a captain from  the Onion headquarters went, under a  flag of truce, with a communication to  General Lee concerning the exchange  of prisoners.  "General Lee," said the captain, wit*,  a smile, after delivering his message,  "General Grant sends you his personal  compliments and bids me assure you  that he knows exactly what you had  for breakfast this morning."  "General Grant must be misinformed  as to this," replied General Lee, surveying the message bearer with a sad  smile. "General Grant Is a generous  man, and if he had known with what  a breakfast 1 hnd to content myself  he would certainly havo sent me half  of his. Hut give him my compliments."  he continued, with a sudden twinkle,  "and say that although I do not know  as to his breakfast I have full particulars concerning his dinner last night"  Thousands of acres of  the best fruit and' agficul/  tural   lands   in   the  best  B,   C   climate   at   vefy  & reasonable terms,  Synopsis of Coal mining Regulations.  f^OAL mining rights of the Dominion,  w iu Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of British  Columbia, may be leased for a term of  twenty-one years at au annual rental of  $i an acre.

The  company  has   also   under   option  numerous properties upon   which  payments aro to be made during  the current fiscal year,  and   the  hoard deems it best to use  available net revenue for that purpose  which is thought essential'for the  purpose of supplementing ore re-  carry on work without the disadvantages under which they have  heretofore labored. On the adjacent showings on Glacier creek  and Bear river considerable work  will be done. .  On Eocher de Boule mountain  the copper deposits which have  attracted so much attention are  being steadily developed, while  arrangements havo been completed  for the opening up of a number of  very promising groups in the immediate future.  The camps tributary to the  Bulkley Valley towns are likely to  come into prominence, since Hudson Bay mountain properties have  been proved to contain silver-lead  ore of high grade in large deposits  and the Telkwa and Babine showings promise great things.  The, coal measures of the Telkwa  and Morice rivers and Coal creek  will be still further developed,  while several of the companies  holding large areas in tho famous  Groundhog field have men and  supplies on the trail, with the  object of starting the seasons work  early. Other concerns will begin  development work on their properties as soon as the pack trail is  open.���������Hazelton Miner.

Already a majority of those who  will work in the more distant sections of the district have begun the  work of transporting supplies over  the   toboggan   trails,   and   when  spring opens several hundreds of  men will be engaged in developing  properties in the newer camps.  .   In  the historic goldfields of the  Omineca river and Manson creek a  ���������umber of strong companies are  engaging in extensive hydraulicing  operations and there is little doubt  that the season's clean-up of placer  gold in that district  will be one of  the largest in its history.    For the  first time, the big silver-lead showings in the vicinity   of Omineca  river will be worked by enterprising and experienced mining men,  with the probability that the older  placer district will in a comparatively short time rival the other  silver camps of Omineca district.  On Nine-mile, Four-mile and  Glen mountains the properties  which have been worked during  the winter show good results, while  quite a number of others will soon  be under development. Two of  the mines are already shipping ore,  and another producer will be added  to tho list in a few days. The projected completion of the Nine-mile  wagon road will enable the owners  of   several   promising   groups   to  On Thursday, the 27th March,  A. W.

Work is progressing very satisfactorily, although delayed somewhat by lack of powder, a supply  of which is on the road.  It is stated that the rock all  across the face of the tunnel is  now showing good signs of mineral  and samples brought down are  supposed to be as rich, if not more  so. than some which was struck in  the early days and which on assay  were shown to run ������212 in silver  and $10.60 in gold, all that they  were assayed for.���������Vancouver Sun.  A rick strike of gold has been  made during the last two weeks on  Conklin's Gulch, one mile northeast of Barkerville, by Robert  Buchanan. John Bell, L. D. Mul-  ler and Martin Schilling, four well-  known local mining men, pay dirt  having been struck running from  four ounces, $72, to six ounces,  $108, to the set.  These men have been working  all winter on their claim, sinking  a shaft to a depth of forty-five feet  to the bed-rock, and running tunnels in different directions to locate the old channel where the  pay dirt lies.���������Cariboo Observer.

Three thousand or more wild  horses in herds from thirty to 100,  are roaming over the hills and  valleys in the interior of British  Columbia, according to a repor  brought to Edmonton by James  Bradley, who with Gusfcav Reiland,  a veteran prospector ancl miner  known throught the, bonanza gold  camps, has just returned from an  extended exploration tour of the  coast province.  "Indians and white prospectors  and pack-train freighters value  these animals more than high-bred  horses," said Mr. Bradley. "They  are the progeny of horses turned  loose on the trail by discouraged  or dying men during the famous  gold rush in the Cariboo country.  Thousands of the veriest tenderfoot stampeded to the new fields in  tho early. 'GO's. Many of them  wore incompetent, and, in fact,  utterly helpless in that wild country, and the horses either broke  away or were abandoned when the  fortune hunters gave up ou the  long trail.  "The horses mado their feeding  grounds in the vicinity of Barkerville for several years afterwards,  and their offspring wandered  northward as the band increased.  They aro wild, and make trails on  tho mountains ancl timbered country much after the fashion of buffalo in tho early days, ancl deer at  present.  "The Indians and freighters,  working in tho timbered districts,  catch them with snares, such as  are used for lynx. In most cases  the animals are easily broken and  they are bettor for the rough country than high-grade horses, on account of their stamina and sure-  ness of foot on the mountain trails.  We lost horses from our train from  time to time and replaced them  J with wild animals."  f^-^^-S-SS^SSS*^^  Return   Engagement  Everything New But The Name  A Varied Attraction that Pleases All  BARGAIN   PRICES  CHILDREN, 25c, ADULTS, 50c  ANY SEAT IN THE HOUSE.

For the benefit of such mothers 'In  this vicinity we publish the following  letter.  J. Edmund Miller, New Haven,  Conn., says: "My little daughter, over  since her birth, had been frail and  sickly, and was a constant source of  worriment. Several months ago we  commenced to give her Vinol. I Immediately noted an Improvement in  her health and appearance. I gavo  her three bottles of Vinol, and from  the good It has done her I can truly  say it will do all you claim."  This child's recovery was due to  the combined action of the medicinal  elements extracted from cods' livers,  ���������combined with the blood-making  and strength-creating properties of  tonic iron, which are contained in  Vinol.    ,  Vinol will build up and strengthen  delicate children, old peoplo and the  weak, run-down and debilitated.
