Several chimney fires' have  occurred recently in Greenwood.  When brooms, scrapes and ladders are not available people  should clean their chimmes by  burning small pieces af zinc in  their stoves.  The Silver Spring brewery in  Anaconda was burned early on  Sunday morning. It is thought  that the fire originated from a  defective chimney. The brewery  was bought by Louis Krueger  last summer, ancl he was beginning to do a good business. The  property was insured for $4,000.  By request of the Presbyterian  Ladies Aid of Phoenix, "A Box  of Monkeys" was produced at  that place" in the Opera House on  Friday evening. The audience  was appreciative and-a very kindly reception was given to the  Greenwood amateurs.. Rev. Mr.  and Mrs. Munroe entertained the  members most hospitably after  the play, at the manse.  The local lodge of the Knights  of Pythias are not forgetting the  children this Christmas for on  Friday December 19th they will  give all K. of P, children a drive  supper and Xmas ��������� tree.

W.  C. Arthurs provided the good  things to eat and that speaks for  itself for he always does things  well, and the firemen are certainly judges in the catering  line. Sid Storer, as president,  kept the ball rolling and everyone had to sing a song, tell a  story, or make a speech. All  were in a merry mood and everybody was a jolly good fellow.  The firemen, are volunteers and  have such pride in their city that  they band themselves together  for the protection of life and  property. The firemen are entitled to an annual festival for  "They are all jolly good Fellows."  Intermediate Hockey.  Hockey is the chief topic in the  athletic world and Greenwood is  coming in for its fair share, and the  intermediate club is doing much to  give hockey in the Boundary prominence. There are good players  in Greenwood who, thoy though  may not be quite fast enough for  the professional team, still thoy can  acquit themselves in this the fastest  game in the world, with credit and  honor to Greenwood, and it is  more than likely that the intermediates will at the end of the season  be victorious. A very enthusiastic  meeting was held in the Windsor  Hotel on Friday night when the  following officers wore elected;���������  Hon. President Dr. McArthur  President W. G. Kennedy  A. N. Mowat  E.

Jimmy Jackson has returned to  Oroville, having decided that he  did not want to live in Armstrong.  In New Westminister last week  fresh eggs were 65 cents a dozen,  and potatoes from S13 to $17 a ton.  The government has built 44  miles of telephone line between  Lardo and the Duncan River district.  Recently several hens at Nakusp  became intoxicated by eating mildewed fruit that was partially fermented.  Bob Stevenson is planning to begin work upon a group of copper  claims near Allison in the Similkameen.

Nine Winnipeg men have recently bought from 10 to 20 acres of  land each, at Argenta Gardens,  near the head of Kootenay lake.  The Oroville Gazette has moved  into its new office, and is now set  in larger type which improves the  appearance of that valuable paper.  Its editor was guilty of starting  the Review in Spokane 30 years  ago.  David Lawley, of Hedley, recently had his eyes injured while  working in the Nickle Plate mine.  He struck a small piece of dynamite with a dull pick while clearing away muck in one of the  stopes.  In a distance of 2G miles, between Nelson and Castlegar, the  C.P.R. passenger trains make 13  stops. The C.P.R. is always willing to oblige the ranchers, and do  all in its power to keep them from  walking too far to catch a train.  Paddy Murphy's pacing horse,  Earl, Jr., recently won seven races  out of ten in the east. Paddy returned to Enderby last week with  his wife, having recently married  Miss Laura Brogau at Ironwood,  Michigan, a sweetheart of his boyhood days.  Herman Clever, of New Denver,  was in Nelson last week buying  some elegant wedding presents for  his old friends, Mr. and Mrs.  Andrew Jacobson. Hermann says  that he will buy Jim Grier a piano  when that veteran journalist decides to go double.  The rush to stake oil lands to  tho northwest of Athabasca Landing still continues. No oil or gas  has been struck in that region, and  the entire excitement is based upon  surface indications and geological  formation. Evidontly it is not  necessary to have mineral in place,  or oven float, in order to stake oil  claims.  At a depth of 35 feet some rich  gold ore has been found in the  Reco mine at Chesaw. The ore is  free milling and virgin gold is  scattered through it. One of the  richest specimens assayed over  $26,000 to the ton. The lead  where crosscut i8 three feet wide.  Tellurium and black quartz are  abundant.  Jesse Michael, whoso father lives  in London, Ontario, was suffocated  in the Spokane hotel at Oroville  one night last week.

He had*-lived,  for IS years in and  adjacent ,'to  Waneta. /Many years ago he was  a    prominent    oil   operator    in  Petrolia, Ontario.    He was a partner with Lige Coryell,   the father  of the late Jack Coryell.    From an  investment of $200  Gillespie once  made 8100,000 in an oil  venture,"  but he never had any luck afterwards, and was a poor man at his  death.    In the early days of Sud- *  bury ho prospected around   that  camp ancl located   several nickel  claims.  Apparently the whole of this  district is floating over- a lake  of oil. Sumas, Wash., people be;  lieve they have rich fields, Pitt-  Meadow men are drilling for it,  Chilliwack residents dream . of it  and now Mission is smelling it  when the wind blows off Hatzic  Prairie. Some fellow down there  brought in the story that the oil in  an endeavor to attract the Standard Oil Company actually oozed,  through the ground.' The story  oozed out, too, and now Mission  people are falling over the stakes  which mark the rich oil claimB ,in  that vicinity. ��������� Chilliwack Progress.

The Matron of  honor wore a handsome tan chenille costume with oriental lace  and satin trimmings.  The groom's present to the  bride was a gold bracelet and  brooch made of Kruger sovereigns  and a gold watchchain. To the  Matron of honor he gave a gold  brooch set with pearls, and to the  groomsman a gold watch fob.  After the ceremony they sat  down to a delicious wedding  breakfast and at 11.35 a.m. left  on the C.P.R. for Nelson to spend  their honeymoon.  The happy couple were the recipients of many handsome presents, and were showered with  old shoes and rice at the depot,  and left with the best wishes of  many friends.  Mr. and. Mrs. J.

We should have a school Lin B.  C, to teach the New Zealand  method of making butter.  Heaven must be a place, unspotted by carnal mnd, and untouched by the wild brain storms  of a mundane sphere.  Even Christian Science is none  too new. The Hindoo philosophers taught something similar  many centuries ago.  What's the matter with British  Columbia? Can't raise enough of  eggs, beef and butter to feed its  own people.  As far as we can learn Hades  has one good feature.    The  fur-  'naces never freeze up,  and it is  not necessary to rustle a   stock of  ice for the summer.  On Sundays in Nakusp 20 years  ago divine services were held in  Hugh Madden's barroom. The  bottles and poker tables were covered with cotton and no booze was  drank during the services. After  church the devil again took the  deal and things went on as usual.  There are many knockers in  Nelson, and a few good boosters.  One of the real good boosters told  ua the other day that Nelson would  before very long have a population  of 50,000. This will be brought  about by working the platinum  deposits, and employing 16,000  miners or more" upon the great low  grade gold dykes that stud the  mountains around that beautiful  city. When these things come to  pass Nelson will become the greatest mining camp on earth. Let us  pray.  Every 25th of December is called  Christmas, not because Christ was  born upon that day,  for his birthday is unknown, but because upon  that   date  the sun   starts   north  again after having travelled steadily south for six months.    In countries far south of the equator the  proper time for Christmas is the  25th of June, and in countries far  north of the equator the 25th of  December.   Close to the equator  the  days   have . no   significance.  Christmas is really a sun festival.  We- sing,  we   dance, we  merry  make, because the sun,  the real  light of the world is again coming  north to fill all the land with green  grass, beautiful flowers and bountiful crops.   If thevsun should slip  a cog and fail to run on schedule  timo this northern  world   would  be a dead one.   So next week let  us rejoice that the sun has never  disappointed   ns,   and has  never  been a minute late up to date.  Thinking Themes  A correspondent writes: "When  people are married we often hear,  'What could he or she see in the  other?'  "Do love give a deeper insight  and see a worth really there, or  does it merely overheat the fancy  to imagine a worth not there?  "Will you give an explanation  of this?"  I will. Because there are few  questions   of  deeper  concern   to.  thousands than this.  For practioal purposes, for living  one's life in peace and happiness,  it is more important to know  about the law of love than the  laws of chemistry or of the  country.  There is no reason why the subject should not be treated in the  editorial column.  The question asked by my correspondent is a great one, np to  date, and almost a matter of life  and death.  Here, therefore, is the answer:  Love is not a delusion. Love is  the only thing that can see truth.  That is true not only in the relation of men and women, but everywhere else.  The reason Edison is a wizard  at invention is not only of his  genius, but also because he loves  laboratory work.  No man can handle a horso who  does not love a horse.  The best cook is the best lover  of cooking.  The greatest baseball player is  the most tremulous lover of the  game, other things being equal.  The best nevelist or story writer,  is the one who most wholly loves  the characters he creates.  The best actor is the greatest  lover of his art.  The only preacher of any account is the one who is infatuated  with preaching.  There is only one potency. It  is love. There Is only one vision.  It is love. There is only one  wisdom. It is love. There is only  one religion.   It is love.  Yon cannot get anything out of  a book unless you love it.  You cannot teach children unless you love them.  Money did not do any permanent  good in the world. One loving  heart outweighs all the gifts of  Carnegie and Rockefeller in its results on the welfare of mankind.  Love sees. It is not blind. Indifference is blind. The cold heart  is blind.  There is only one tragedy. It is  when love dies.  Love creates. Coldness is impotent.  ��������� Love has that faith (trust)  which saves the world. Intellect  has those doubts which unloose the  world. Love is sympathetic. Intellect is analytic.  The bottommost pit of hell,  Dante says, is frozen; the seat of  the Eternal in heaven glows with  heat and light.  The Devil, Mephistopheles, according to Goethe, is pure intellect. He never loved a human  soul."  "God," says the Bible, "is  love."  This earth was made for lov era,  and he who loves not, though he  bewalking about, is dead, dead,  dead.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  lu-iidstone, and dropped a handful of smoke-bush blossoms on the  grave.  ���������''Taint no man, Bir���������it's a hoss;  it's old 'Two Bits.'"  "But why is he buried here with  the soldiers?"    I questioned.  "Buried here, sir? Why, yon  must be a stranger, sure. I  thought everybody knew about old  'Two Bits' an' his his savin' Company A. It was two years ago,  when them Apaches was on the  war-path. They raided the ranches  below here and killed a lot of  women an' children, an' run off  all fihe stock; an' Company A was  sent out after 'em.  "They ambushed us at Dirty  Creek, more'n twice as many of  'em as we thought was this side of  San Carlos; but we managed to git  into a little clump of scrub-oaks  an' held 'em off till sundown.  "Then our captain see it was all  ���������fSp with us if help didn't come from  the post; an' he called for a volunteer to ride old 'Two-Bits' past an'  carry the word.  " 'Two-Bits' had been on the  track in his young days, an' held  the belt for long-winded runnin'.  Many'sthe time I've seen Cap.  clean up a hatful of Mexican dollars racin' him against the cowboys' ponies. He was a big chestnut sorrel, with white feet an' a  white face; an' him and Cap. loved  each other like twin brothers.  I've knowed Cap. to go hungry  lots o' times scoutin', so's old  'Two-Bits' could have his hardtack; an' he'd hold up his head an'  drink out of a canteen like a regular. It was mighty hard time if  that old hoss didn't get his share.  "Well, more'n a dozen of the  boys offered to go, but Cap. picked  out 'Curly' White, the toughest  an' lightest man in the lot, to do  the ridin'.  "While they were gittin' him  ready, 'Two-Bits' just stood and  rubbed his nose on Cap.'s arm like  he was sayin' that if we didn't  hear the old troop bugles before  mornin' it wouldn't be his fault.  "Then 'Curly' grabbed his gun  an' swung into the saddle; an' we  all hollered an' yelled an' made a  break for the Injun lines on the  side away from the post, like we  was bound to go through. That  gave 'Curly' a chance, and he took  it. Old 'Two-Bits' shot up that  valley like a streak, but there was  a trail of Apaches behind him.  We see 'Curly' drop the reins an'  turn in the saddle, >an' the Injuns  fall back a little.  "The race was nip an' tuck for a  mile, an' once we see old 'Two-  Bits' stagger like he was hit; but  he kept his feet an' passed out of  sight in the hills. Then the dark  came down an' we waited. By  daylight the bugles of the old  Third was a-ringin' in the valley,  and we knew all was well.  "An'   'Curly'   an'   'Two-Bits?'  Well 'Curly' was shot clean thru,  but he lived, an' is wearin' shoul-  der.straps today.    An' 'Two-Bits?'  He carried the word, an' he carried  two big balls from Apache rifleatill  he fell dead at the colonel's door.

Is it the  ginger that has worked this cure?"  A well known doctor said that if  people would only eat ginger at  breakfast their health would improve in many respects and they  would start the day much readier  for work than they do now.'  "Ginger," he said, "contains an  essential oil which acts as a fine  nerve tonic. It promotes digestion, is an excellent stomach tonic  aud is extremely good for the liver.-  "The liver is the organ which  makes people so morose in the  morning.

"Now if people who experience  these symptons would only take  plenty of ginger at breakfast their  livers would act properly and their  digestion would improve to an extent they cannot realize until they  try the cure. They would go to  business in a normal state of temper.

Nonpariel measurement  ���������A LOVELY FACE  BUT UGLY HAIR  A new bulletin is now available  at the Forestry Branch, Ottawa,  describing some Jsimple and inexpensive methods of preserving  fence-posts from decay. It has  been found that the genorous application of hot creosote to well-  seasoned posts stripped of bark,  even when only painted on with a  brush, will add at least ten years  to the life of the least durable  woods. Many common Canadian  woods which hitherto decayed too  rapidly to be so used are thus  made available for fence-posts.  The saving in first cost and transportation more than  balances the  cost of treatment, while th6 cost of  placing the posts will be mnch  lass when considered as an annual  charge.  How often you see an otherwise lovely  face spoiled bp homely hair���������a face that  would be most charmingly beautiful if  she only had prettier hair. What a pity!  ���������and how foolish! Because that .ugly  hair, stringy, dull, lifeless-looking though  it may be, can be made' as glossy, .silky  and beautiful as the heart could desire if  only taken proper care of.  Harmony Hair Beautifier is just what  it is named���������a hair beautifier.' It is not  hair dye or hair oil���������itis just a  dainty,  rose'perfumed liquid dressing to give the  hair its natural gloss and brightness, its  natural wavy  softness, its natural' rich  beauty.     Very easy . to  apply���������simply  sprinkle a little on your hair each time  before brushing it.   It- contains no oil,  and will not change the color bf the hair.  To keep your hair and scalp dandruff  free and clean, use Harmony Shampoo.  This pure liquid shampoo is most convenient to use, giving an instantaneous  rich, foaming lather  that  immediately  penetrates to every part of the hair, and  scalp, insuring  a quick  and thorough  cleansing,   It is washed off just as quickly, the entire operation taking only a few  moments.    Contains nothing  that  can  harm the hair, and leaves no harshness  or stickiness���������just a sweet cleanliness.   .

And yet how seldom do we offer ourselves the relaxation and our friends and neighbors the pleasure of such  an invitation!     Is a guest coming?    Straightway we  set  to work to clean house from garret to cellar; we  cook and  bake and stew and fuss and sigh and work as though some  terrible calamity were about to befall us, instead  of  that  which should be the most delightful' anticipation, the visit  of a friend.    If the house is clean and fair enough for our  nearest and dearest, why not for our friend?    If dinner is  ample for the family, why not for an added guest?   And  will not the day and visit be more delightful for both hostess and guest, if the fare-is plain and the faces at the table  bright and fresh, not wearied and flushed as with an added  burden instead af an added pleasure?

MINING NEWS   |  000<H>00<>0<>00<>CK>00<><H><X><>0<H>  During the mouth of November  15 vessels arrived at the Port of  Vancouver carrying a carload of  Petroleum, the total measure being  slightly over 320,000 bai-rels. All  shipments wore from California  ports. Tho inauguration of a new  service of oil burning liners from  Vancouver next month will, it is  thought, cause these figures to  show great increase in the coming  year.  That the government is endeavoring to develop for the ultimate  benefit of the Canadian people the  gas and oil fields of the Dominion  is shown by the work of two experts of the' mines branch of the  government, who are at work on  tbe whole question of oil production in Canada. They have just  made a report, which is under the  consideration ofHon Louis Coderre  Minister of Mines, and which will  result in increased activities. Upon  proper legislative guidance, the oil  fields of Canada, if developed, may  rival those of the United States.  News that the Red Cliff Mine is  ��������� to be reopened in the spring is received iu Stewart with intense satisfaction   on   every   hand.     This  mine which was one of^the   mainstays of tho Portland  Canal from  its inception, has [now been  shut  down for the past twelve months,  and the loss of its payroll has been  keenly felt.   The impetus given to  copper   mining   generally. in this  part of the world by the activity of  the Granby Consolidated  Mining  Company has been the direct cause  of new capital being interested, and  it  is  learned   on   the  very best  authority that sufficient money haa  been raised to start to block out  the immense bodies of copper ore  already proven to be existent in' tbe  mine.   The Red CHS will 'eventually be handed down   to posterity  as a monument  of  never failing  faith, supported   by the untiring  energy of its promoter, A. Erskine  Smith.���������Victoria Week.  down this week. It is said that  the company owes between three  and , four thousand dollars for  wageH and supplies. This will, of  course, be paid by the company.  J. D. MacMaster of New York is  the managing director of the company and will, no doubt, pay up  when he becomes acquainted with  the facts, as he has a reputation  for square dealing.  J.   P.  Keerio,  manager of the  Wonderful, near Sandon, met with  an accident two or  three weeks  ago,   which   has necessitated   his  keeping to tho house since then,  although now able to get about  again.    The cap of a set of timbers  fell on his foot when a new set  was being put in the tunnel,   with  the result that some of the bones  in his right foot were injured. The  firBt car of galena mined from the  Wonderful in many years was recently shipped to Trail.  Alex. Smith, manager of the  Surprise, went to Nelson Tuesday.  Mr. Smith will go east this month  to spend the winter," the management of the mine being left to J.  P. McFadden, M. E., the superintendent. The development on  the Surprise has passed the experimental stage, and next year it will  be one of the large shippers from  the Sandon camp. Development  has shown three veins of galena  below the 800 level. One of these  veins is from 4 to 6 feet in width,  the other two from 1 to 2 feet.  The silver contents of the ore  averages about 130. ounces to the  ton. The zinc shipped is about 50  per cent.  CITY COUNCIL  met   on  Monday  The Slocan Mines  FROM THE SLOCAN" RECORD  Geo. B. Deane, having leased  his partner's interest in the Cinderella, near Three Porks, is now  working that property.  Chas. Brand and A. R. Ping-  land, owners of the L H mine near  Silverton, went to Nelson last Saturday, returning Monday.  The Payne crosscut tunnel, being driven to get under the old  workings at a considerably lower  level, is now in between 2,500 and  3,000 feet.  Ed. Shannon and G. B. Webster  went clown to the Neepawa last  Friday. The latter, having got  out and shipped three cars of ore,  has decided to quit now as winter  has come on.  Byron N. White, owning important mining interests in Slocan  district, in Whitehorse copper  camp, Yukon, and in other parts,  is reported as improving after having been seriously ill at his home  in Spokane.  Thos. Trenary has a couple of  men working on the Jo Jo up the  North Fork of Carpenter creek.  He has already taken out some ore,  and will continue getting more  until enough shall have accumulated for a carload shipment.  The Eagle Lode Mining company is making good progress  with the work of driving a crosscut adit on its Eureka property,  situate three or four miles from  Whitewater. The object of this  development is to open at greater  depth a shoot of ore ocourring in a  higher level and believed to continue down.  The Hartney mine was closed  The Council  evening.  A letter was read from H. Bose,  secretary, of the U. B. C. M.,  notifying the [Council that the  assessment towards solicitor at  Victoria during the next session  would be 820. The letter was laid  over for the incoming Council to  deal with.  A letter from the B. C. Telephone Co., requesting the Mayor's  signature, andjapproval to changes  in their line was received and  fyled.  Several J engineers of Nelson,  Victoria and Vancouver sent in  their terms for making a report  upon the water system. The matter of engaging an engineer was  left to the Mayor and Water Committee.  It was agreed to sell lot 10,  block A,- map 61, to B. Schandel  for $25.  C. Kinney and R, Mitchell sent  in tenders for the building known  as the Greenwood   hotel.     They  were not accepted,   and   tenders  will be called for again at a later  date.  By-law No. 5 was finally passed.  The   following   accounts   were  ordered to   be   paid:    G.   Clerf,  $56.25; C.  J.  McArthur,   844.37;  The Ledge,  82; Granby Co., $3;  Greig & Morrison,   $5; A. Logan  & Co., 85.40; C.  Kinney,  $11.50;  L. A.
