A'-social;was held in one of  the local churches at which a number of the Greenwood  union, including the secretary,  were present.     There was, of course, the  usnal bunfeed, at, the social, and  the ladies  of  the church had engaged a Chink to  help Bhovothe  buns.     The resolution, after   the  usual whereases, reciting the duties  and obligations of union men and  more especially the members of the  W.   F.  M., resolved that those attending a certain church social, be  censured and fined 81 each for patronizing a place employing Asiatic  labor.       The   resolution   further  stated that.the mover had been informed  that the, Chink had even  scabbed on, Asiatic, prices, having  worked  five hours for fifty cents.  One of those lined paid he hadn't  been in a  ohtireh  for ten  years.  Others protested that tliey didn't  know   the church was loaded with'  Chinks and  promised  to be morel  circumspect in their choice of company in  future.    The resolution  was, of course, a joke, and will be  reconsidered        and       rei-cindt'd  -at.-next   meeting.-  but it caused  some hard thinking by those ao  ccueed, and a whole lot of amusement for those "not guilty."  i credit to its publisher.

While the city, through its officials,  is a   partner in a calling which it  is unnecessary to mention here, it  is  not- expected that the partnership should  be lecognized by individual   citizens in public places.

C, the Kossland Miner has the following to say:  That this province is enjoying  more than ordinary prosperity is  'evidenced by many cummulative  signs. The province is being over-,  run by mining prospectors, timber  cruisers ' and other explorers and  seekers after title to some of the  natural resources and this has been  the case for the past year. The  most remote regions of this vast  province   'lave been invaded  by  these men,   mist   of whom were  employed by wealthy companies  and syndCc ites to obtain all possible  information in reference to the  natural resources of the country.  Some were commissioned to look  out for the best timber limits procurable, and others to search for  minerals with which almost all  sections are known to abound. As  a result of the knowledge which  has been gained numerous tracts  have recently been pre-empted,and  the revenue derived by the pro-  vial government from the issuance  of licenses is three times as large  as that of the same period last  year.  TheJ'causes are the stimulation  that his been given to mining by  the expanding price of silver, copper and lead: the in< reasing price  of lumber, owing to the augmented  demand from the northwestern  province!-;] the proposed construe  "The tone of the Nelson press is  that Okanagan is insanely jealous  of Kootenay, while as a matter of  fact thero is no. such jealousy existent.     Kootenay may grow fruit  of fancy grade, so little is produced  at present that there is not much  evidence   forthcoming,   but,  if it  .���������an, it is to be congratulated, and  ,ve would mt for a moment doubt  ��������� Is ability to do so; but the charge  >f jealousy  has been trumped up  0 conceal the real point, whicli is  cliat  there has been an attempt to  ,ive .the  people of a friendly com  uuiiity,    interested   in the same  horticultural pursuits, a cowardly  stab in the back through the Manitoba papers.     "When  it   comes to  the people of K-x-tenay stating that  Jkanagau    cannot   grow  fruit of  aiicy grade,   we hurl the lie back  11  their faces as a base, libellous  falsehood, in the promulgation, of  whioh tho  newspapers   of  Nelson  are so lacking in the elements of  common sens-e and fair play as to  lend their aid,   while real, estate  boomers   stuff   them   with fat advertisements,  and laugh in their  fcleev.at their simplicity."  Fruit Industry  Ten years ago. says an exchange,  British Columbia did not grow  suflicieut fruit to supply its own  need-*. The value of the province  last year was, however, over one  million dollars, of which 4350 tons,  valued at $350,000, were exported.  That in itself was a great increase  over 1904, when the export was  3025 tons, valued at a quarter of a  million dollars, while in 1003 the  export was 2544 tons, and in 11)02  it was 1956 tons. This year it is  estimated that two million fruit  trees were planted in various parts  of the province, while as short a  while ago as 1903 the planting was  under a qnartor of a million. Or  take the acreage under fruit. In  1891 the acreage under fruit was  only G437 acres andjin ten years  this had merely increased to 7430  acres. Then came the boom in  fruit lands which is even yet in its  infacy, and by the end of 1905  was reported the planting of 22,-  000 acres. The reason of this  phenomenal increase is not far to  seek. Fruit of the choice varieties  can only be grown on specially selected land, utterly absent in some  countries and none too plentiful  even here. Almost,any land will  grow pome sort of apple, allowing  the climate to be favorable, but it-  is only land that is rare that will  grow the apple that is commanding $3 and ������������������4 a box in the London  market, while the inferior sortB  are selling around 81 in the big  cities of this continent. Land that  will not raise the choicer varieties  which can be successfully matured  in the famous Hood river district  of Oregon, has realized more than  SI 000 per acae It is no wonder,  then, that the fruit lands of British  Columbia are being sought after by  those that know a good thing when  it is placed upon the market.--  Nelson Canadian.  people   cannot   gamble much and!tion  of the Grand Trunk Paci/li  ���������iiave' any   money   left  for other  purposes.

Announejejneiit of the approach-'  ing liegira was made by Overseer  Voliva, before an audience of more  than 1,000 persons in the Zion  church at Sixteenth street and  Michigan avenue, Chicago. . It  was marked by his assumption of  "divine authority." At the same  time he outlined his plans for a  new city, to be conducted along  socialistic lines, with himself as  supreme spiritual and temporal  head. Coupled with theanounce-  ment of his plans were vehement  denunciations of unworthy members of the church whom, he declared, were responsible for its  fall.  The new Zion, into which- no  unworthy member shall be allowed  to euter, will form the nucleus of a  most energetic crusade against the  wickedness of the world and that  of Chicago in partichlar.  There is more devil to the square I  inch  in Chicago than in any other  place in the wide world, Voliva declared.  Autocratic socialism is to be the  government of the new community. No more debt, no more  house rent', no more holding of  land, or property by individuals,  but a sublime condition of brotherly love andprimitive Christianity  is to prevail. .. At the same.time  Voliva is to be supreme.  Let him laugh who may, cried  the prophet.

If it Were possible that this  law could  be passed  hundreds of  diseases,  ailments and ills would  be   eradicated   from   the   human  'race! '  Dr. Grinker spoke of the prevailing causes of nervousness, and  told-' of the numerous little things  by which tho neurasthenic could be  easily distinguished. America, he  t-aid, had more nervous people than  any other country ia the world, almost one member of every family  in tho United States being afflicted  with some form or other of nervousness; Among the most nervous  class, he said, women predominated.  You see thousands and thousands of nervous women on the  streets every day, said he, and  about 99 out of of 100 should be in  a sanitarium. The shopping habit  is one of the great causes.  The bringing up of children, he  said, was the moat important and  the moBt iguored phase of the situation.  The rich man gets up in the  morning and rubs his head with  a rough towel or two, and rasps it  with a comb. Probably he goes  over it with a couple of military  brushes, and in other ways annoys  the roots. Iu the course often  minutes he has pulled out more  haire than he can grow in a year;  and so he gets bald.  The poor man keeps-his hair  simply by not combing it. He  pays no attention to it so the roots  stay in. They are not made ill  by hard bruisage and hard usage.  We teach our parous this, and the  result is that they treat tho delicate little hair roots with much  more care.  THE ARLINGTON  COPPER ST.

Coal in Ireland  There is a touch of romance in  the discovery of immense seams of  coal  in   North Autrim,   Inland, j  which should bring great pn sper-  ity to that district.    In 1767 Hugh  Boyd obtained from  the Earl of  Antrim the right to all mines from  Fairhead to Knockladye,  a distance of seven miles, with a wide  sweep iuland.     A largo output of  coal   followed,   but   with   Boyd's  death the prosperity of the Ball  castle.ceased.    Two years ago, Mr.  Brande, a mining expert, visited  the district.    He then invited Mr.  Cole,  of   tho Geological Department of Ireland, which had previously reported  that the coal wkb  exhausted, to make a survey in his  private capacity.    Prof. Colo confirmed Mr. Brando's estimates that  there was at least 65,000,000 tons  of coal of good quality thero.   The  boring revealed  black band ironstone, estimated to be at least 150,-  000,000,  the ore beiug one of the  richest in the world.   A third discovery was of an enormous discovery of fireclay, the value of which  can  be estimated  when it is eaid  that firebricks are now delivered  in  Belfast at a cost of 82 shillings  per thousand, whereas they can be  delivered from  Ballycastlo  for a  little more  than CO shillings.

Ned seldom  leaves his claim, and if he runs out  of - supplies he   gets along from  what he can wrest from nature.
