Encouraging news in refereuce  to the big tunnel has been received  in Greenwood this week, and there  should be something doing within  a short time. It is a big project  and moves siowly, and Dick Armstrong is desirous of making it a  great success.  There will be a hockey match iu  the skating rink Friday evening  between Grand Forks' and Greenwood, commencing at 7:80. This  is the first of the series between the  three Boundary teams and should  be red-hot throughout. The game  will bs over in time for those wishing to attend the K: of P. ball.  The Polmatier Sisters gave an  excellent concert in the Auditorium, and it is regretablc that  such a worthy entertain in en t did  not have a larger audience. Greenwood people love good music, but  they were probably too tired after  the merriment of Christmas to attend even such a refined and  recherche performance as the one  on Monday evening.  Duncan Ross and family leave  today for the coast possibly to reside there permanentiy. Mr. Ross  has been in business in Greenwood  for twelve years, taking an active  part in all matters tending towards  the city's advancement. Like  other business men ho has had his  lean and his fat years, and took  both as they came, spending his  profits and never squealing at his  losses.

The following accounts were ordered to he paid : S. P. Dixon,  S105.00 : electric lights, S138.95 ;  Hunter-Kendrick Co., S3.25.  Alderman Wilson's (ire protection bylaw was read three times.  G. B. Taylor was appointed returning officer, and Edwin Hallett  deputy returning officer at the  mu1aicipi*l--eiectiono'for.l909. *-,-.-' .-  The nominations for mayor, aldermen and school trustees are to  be held at th*- office of tha municipal clerk at the municipal hall in  Greenwood, and in case a poll is  required, such poll shall be taken  at the municipal hall.  Council adjourned until Jan 11.  B. C. Copper.  The marvellously fine point to  which the reduction of copper ore  has been brought in this province  is shown in the recent returns published by the B. C. Copper company of Groenwood,  B.  C.    For  the six months immediately following the resumption  of operations on June 1st last, with copper  under 13 cents a pound, the total  production  was just over 200,000  tons, having a gross smelter value  of $1.03S,000.    This gives roughly  a value of S3.-10 per ton, including  gold, silver and copper.    Yet there  was a profit of close upon ������235,000,  or SO cents per ton.    This means  that only S2.G0, is   expended   in  mining, smelting and  reducing to  blister copper,  in   which condition  it is marketed.    Such a record is  unique upon the continent.   When  it is further stated that the cost of  winning the copper is  but slightly  over nine cents per  pound it will  be   understood    where   and   how  scientific mining  pays in the huge  ���������ow grade veins in  the Boundary  country.'   It may bo of interest to  add that about 75 per rent, of the  values are contained in the copper,  2 or 3 per cent,   in  silver, the |re-  irrainder being gold,   and that the  total  production   of   coopT from  June 1 to November 30, 100S, was  5,f>-l7,S74 pounds.    This  has been  accomplished   under  two   adverse  conditions,-the first  being  tho resumption of operations after a shut  down  lasting from  November 2(5,  1907,   to May 31,   1008, ��������� and the  second being a, lower market value  for metals than  has obtained for  many years past.    What may he  accomplished with a rising market  in the ensuing six months can well  be gathered.���������Kootenay Liberal.  The Big Hill.  It is expected that trains will  be running next spring through  the big tunnel that the C. P. R. is  now building near Field. The object of'the tunnel is to avoid the  steep grade which calls for three  or even four engines to push aud  pull the train up the Big Hill between Field and Hector, at the  summit of the Rockies. When the  the tunnels are completed the  present mileage between these  points will be increased from four  to eight miles, but,the grade will  be reduced by exactly one hundred  per cent. There is one tunnel on  each side of the river, one being  3.200 feet in length and tbe other  2,S00 feet and a curious point  about them is that the exit will be  almost immediately below the entrance.  The tunnels are L7 feet wide and  25 feet high and the progress made  is at the rate of from 30 to 40 feet  per day. The contractors, besides  employing 1,000 men, have installed two large compressor plants  and active operations are being  carried on at both ends of the tunnels. As a matter of fact the ends  are only about S00 feet apart.  Waterman's Ideal Fountaia Pen  at Eastern prices, $2.50 to $10,  make an ideal Xmas gift. At  Coles' Book store.

Development of the 15-foot vein  of coal on Nine Mile creek has begun with a drift^of 200 feet for determining the thickness and quality  of the coal. The work is being  carried on by J. O'Leary for himself and Idaho associates. As soon  as transportation is given these  owners have a selected market for  every pound of coal they can produce.  J. Anderson, in charge of a small  force, is prospecting on the coal  claims owned by Great Northern  officials. This property was located by W. Boyle two years ago,  and now, it is understood, the  Stevenson claim is included in the  group held by these parties. The  prospecting now going on is in  conformity with the law regarding  coal licenses.  "Considerable interest is taken in  the North Fork of Granite coal  mines, development work on which  was abruptly stopped la������t summer.

He was possessed of nn income of half a million a  year, the income from his mother's  estate, and when his father died���������  well, it required the services of two  men to keep trad; of the Treadway investments.  Marlon was-, a dainty little country  woman, but she wouul need a lot of  social training, of course. Perhaps a  year in a finishing school might be a  good thing to fit her for the place in  society she was destined to fill. It  might be a bother to wait a year before marriage, though, so on second  thoughts perhaps a social secretary  would bo a bettor plan. Treadway decided upon the social secretary as the  lessor of two necessary evils.  Marion nitesnmu was only a little  country girl, tho belle of Wiclifield, a  village of a few thousand persons.  Treadway had been forced to stop  over there for repairs to liis automobile, and before these were made he  had seen Marion. After that the automobile was called upon only for little  trips to nearby points of interest, and  Treadway paid his easy going court to  the girl.  Perkins, his father's lawyer, made  liis summer borne in Wiclifield, aud the  ^introduction was easily accomplished,  'but Treadway found courtship accord-  lag to Wiclifield notions rather complicated. In town ho would havo left a  standing order with the florist and  confectioner. There would have been  au occasional motor excursion and  finally a proposal of marriage iu the  conservatory at some one's dance and  a note iu the society columns of tho  papers.  Here it was all different, and, while  he enjoyed the novelty of it, he found  it rather awkward at times. In town  mammas with marriageable daughters  were willing to do more than half the  courtship for him.  Here he found him-  glad "wherrrit r������������c ho turned his stops  homeward.  The summer had passed, but the  brisk autumnal air made touring a delight, and presently for a second time  the big black car rolled into Wtehiield.  Perkins, the treadway lawjv;-, had  closed his house and gone back to  town, but there was an excellent hotel, and presently Treadway found  himself installed la a comfortable  room. Once settled he sallied forth to  lind Marion.  She was not at home, they told him  at tho house, but Mrs. llltesman added  minute directions by which he found  the patch of woods where Marion had  gone in search of nuts.

As he approached tho looked up wonderlngly;  then, after a moment's pause, she  sprang to her feet with outstretched  hands.

"1 did go across," ho confirmed, "but  I  couldn't stay.    I   wanted  to come  back and ask you if your decisiou was  final."  "My decision''" she echoed.  "Ves," ho explained.

A fashionably dressed woman once  alighted from a brougham in west  London and stepped into a hairdresser's shop. She informed the barber  that she had a son who was of unsound mind aud that the doctor had  ordered his head to be shaved.  Her son, she said, was violent, and  i .  she instructed the barber to get a  couple of assistants and seize him  when he was brought round, to tie him  in a chair and slnive his head in spite  of anything he might say. The barber did not relish the job, but an advance fee of a guinea tempted him,  aud ho fell.  Then the lady drove 1-to the jeweler's, bought some expensive rings and  jewelry and expressed surprise at having left her purse at home. She offered to drive the jeweler home with  her, together with the jewels, and pay  him at her residence.  On arriving once more at the barber's the two alighted, and the unfor-.  turrate jeweler at a sign from the lady  was seized and bound to a chair, and  fn spite of his angry yells and expostulations his head was shaved.

Gwillim, professor of mining  rn Queen's University, Kingston, recently completed a tour through the  Pelkwa, fiulkley and Babino country  in northern British Columbia on behalf of tlie Trail smelter. His impressions as regards its agricultural  and mining possibilities are rather  favorable.  "The Telkwa-Bulklcy-Babine country is a great district southwards of  Hazclton. The valleys are broad, but  not flat-bottomed as many people expect. They are low rolling slopes, partially or totally Wooded. The growth  upon these valley slopes is extraordinary, and no fall frosts had occurred up to Sept. 10 in the main Bulkley  valley," said Mr. Gwillim.  "All grass, stock and root crops  seem to do very well. There seems  to be a future for stock and dairy  products with hay and oats an probable exports' to the coast and north  country. The conditions southward  ���������toward Nochaco, and southeastward  toward Babine lake appear to be  equally favorable for a large farming  community.  "Concerning mineral resources,  ores of lead, silver and copper have  been found over a very large territory,  but little has been done-in the way  of development. The distances are  great and at present tho transportation is all by pack- animals. A wagon  road is being built from Hazelton to  Aldermore, a point sixty mile���������s south;  from this trails of twenty and thirty  miles branch off into tho mountains  on either side. Tho country is a  'favorable ono to prospect, but development and cheap transportation  must come about before there will ha  any production of largo tonnage.  "Any one entering, this district at  this litagc should receive easy terms  and plenty of time to develop mineral  properties because the cost of development will be great', and also experimental, and the time of realizing from  ore production cannot come until the  Grand Trunk Pacific is on a shipping  basis."  Pranks   It .Has   Played  With  Smoke,  Dust  and   Grain.  During ,*i volcanic eruption in the  Hawaiian Islands the smoke rose to  a"height of between five and six miles,  and then'drifted away to the north-  e'ast. At a distance of 600 mile's il  settled on the surface of the sea and ���������  was then carried back by the northeast wind to its place of origin, where  -it a wived a fortnight after its original departure and covered the entire  group of islands with its heavy pall,  Not long ago a steamer was on-hor*  way along the north African coast  from Asia to England and had entered the Galita channel between the  island of that name and the coast of  Tunis when a fine dust began to darken the air and soon afterward to'fall  on deck. Some of,this dust was collected and subjected to chemical analysis in 'Jiuropo. Its constituents  proved that it had been carried high  in the air from the'Sahara desert and  had finally dropped into the Mediterranean.  More extraordinary still was a dust  shower that fell in Hungary some,  years ago. Analysis sliowed that this  dust was identical witli tho sediment  of the Nile. The dust was believed to  have been brought by tho -wind all  tho way from Kgypt, a pretty long  journey for a shower of that description  to accomplish.  It must have boon a high wind indeed that brought a shower of wheat  on one occasion to the villagers in a  place on tho southern coast of Spain.  The wheat fell like rain. There were  so mniiv witnessas of the occurrence  Hint it 'was impossible to doubt that  it had appeared. Hut for some months  it could not be accounted for.  Then came the other side of the  story. It was learned that shortly  be.fore this fall of wheat some farmers  near the" northern coast of Morocco  had been threshing wheat with flails  when suddenly a tornado swept over  the eround and carried all the wheat  and "chaff on the thrashing cloth-into the air'. The cloth was swept away  bv the storm, and the farmers fell to  the ground, but were not injured.  When tho storm had passed thoy were  horrified at discovering that the result of their labors had totally disappeared. There seemed httl** doubt  that the wheat that fell in Spain was  that whicli belonged to the Moroccan  farmers. ft had been blown clear-  across the Mediterranean.

An ambitious young Chicagoan recently called upon a publisher of novels in that city, to whom he imparted confidentially the information that  he had decided to "write a ' book,"  and that lie would be pleased to afford the publisher the chance to bring  it out.

Edwards,  P.D.O.R.A.O-F., P.O-.M.I.O.O.  F., tho well-known Friendly  Society leader, of Peter Street,  Toronto;    Zam-Buk  proved  otherwise.   Mr. Edwards out  his  finger badly, and  blood  poisoning followed., He says:  "The blood poisoning spread up my  hand aud arm nnd caused mo terrible  agony.    After two months' treatment  tho doctor naiil tliero was no oure, and  amputation would havo to take place  if I intended to nave the arm. My hand  at that time,was all awollen up and  discolored, and I had to carry it in a I  sling.    I left that doctor and consulted I  another.  After a few weeks' treatment I  he also told me that operation would  be nocessary.     That night I bathed  the wound and put on somo Zam-Buk.  I got a little sleep for the first time'for  many   nights.    In   tha   morning   the  wound  began to blood inalead of the  foul discharging as in the past.    This  was ft healthy sign so I went on with  the Zam-Buk.     Well,  to cut a long  story short, in a few days I put away  the sling and. in a few weeks thejiuger  was healed- completely.

The capture of a willow grouse on  one of the principal business thoroughfares of Victoria caused some  talk recently. Tt was late-and the  streets practically were deserted. A  gentleman .had just'passed out of a  restaurant when he was astonished to  see a bird, which looked remarkably  like a grouse at first sight, dash itself against the window pane and  fall at his feet. He picked it up,  wrung its neck, and then took time  to examine it. Being himself somewhat of a follower of the simple life as  interpreted by local disciples of Nim-  rod, he recognized that it was a grouse  of the w''lloV species. Agreeably astonished, and realizing that he had  had a most unusual experience,-he  recounted it to his friends. Many  of the latter put it^ down as a yarn  which would have to,be accepted with  the proverbial "pinch of salt." But  when he produced the evidence and  related the details again with a wealth  of exact detail the story was given  credence and circulated as being another of the season's wonders.

Alexander Stewart Gray,-leader, of  the "Hunger Marchers," who are 'attracting so 'much attention m England just now, was,until recently one  cl the most prominent and successful  ldwyers in Edinburgh, Scotland. In  older to identity himself with this  new movement, which ,is organized  for the-purpose of calling attention  to the unemployed problem, he abandoned ^a fortune of nearly $250,000.  Clacf in rough gat merits, a slouch  hat, and sometimes barefooted, Stew-  ait Gray is tramping about the coun-.  try at the head of a body of men, like  u modern Peter the Hermit, pleaching a new crusade. Not long ago the  "Hunger Marchers," led by him,  walked from Manchester to London,  a distance of 187 miles, to present a  petition to ������������������ King Edward. In London they were invited to St. Paul's  Cathedral, where Archdeacon Sinclair  dcliveied a sermon championing their  cause, and collected $200 to provide  them with food and shelter. Rev. R.  'J. Campbell of tho City Temple also  "entertained" them in a similar way.  Recently they "invaded" Canterbury  Cathedral and created a sensation by  demanding that1 a sermon on unemployment and the land question  should be preached. "r  The personality of Stewart Gray is  striking. Tall, gaunt, ascetic, with  long hair and deep-set eyes, clad in  workman's clothes, and often wearing  knickerbockers with no stockings,  with a great "sombrero" pulled down  over his eyes, he looks like the typical "social reformer" depicted on the  stage.  This reformer comes of good family,  and after a liberal education he began the practice of the law in Edinburgh. He became the manager of  several large properties, bought and  sold land on his own account and in  a few years he acquired a fortune.  In-his visits to the remote sections  of Scotland he came in touch with  the peasant class. He became convinced that the principal of landlordism is" wrong.  'Gray says:  "When I took the resolve to 'quit  the game,' I gave all my property into the hands of a friend, and then  loft the whole business. I should say  the "property abandoned was worth  about $250,000. I decided then to devote my life to trying to obtain some  oi the land for the people. There  are vast tracts of land in England  which aro not under cultivation at  all, and besides this upward of 100 -  000 acres a year go out of cultivation  for sporting purposes; that is, for  shootmg and fishing and for deer  parks made by the wealthy and landed classes. With nearly a million un-  employed men walking about, and  these bare acres of England waiting  to be tilled, it seems\a ciime to mo  that this idle land should not be linked to idle labor. The people of England have a birthright in their own  soil, and that Is why in my speeches  and pamphlets I refer to them as  the 'born-robbed.' Thev have no  right to Jive, and if the landed classes  in England choose to turn them all  out to-morrow they would have perfect legal power to do so. With my  knowledge of farming, and my experience on the land, I am quite convinced that I would soon be able to  teach every man under my charge to  make his own living on the land.  "My main idea in tho Hunger  l".irch is this: If we can got, say, 10,-  000 men marching about the country  and agitating we are sure to make an  impression on the authorities in  time. The people themselves will  have a species of grand holiday at the  best season of the year. We are taking our men to all the 'swell' seaside I  -resorts, such as Hastings, Bexhill, '  Brighton and elsewhere, and the process of education is going on* Wherever we go, we find the public sympathetic; though, of course, the police and the authorities are generally  opposed. In London, several prominent persons have already come to  speak from our platform and we think  the plan we have adopted of giving  the worldess men and women a grand  national holiday at the public expense, a very effective way of calling  attention to the unemployed problem."  cf Cod Liver Oil with Hypo  phosphites should always be  kept in the house for the1  following reasons:  First���������Because, if any member  of the family has a hard cold,  it will cure it.

Lady   Auckland   Has   a   New   Notion  About Houso Furnishings.  -Lady Auckland, who has opened an  antique furniture shop in London, has  a theory that a woman's beauty depends no more on her skin, hair, bearing or even dress than It does on her  background, her surroundings. She  must ,have her house furnished to  match her complexion.  "The paintings of the old masters are  the best guide to artistic'furnishing,"  says Lady Auckland. "They never  made the mistake of picturing a woman with a background that didn't suit  her. coloring. Host modern portrait  painters are wise enough to consider  the sitter's type -when, devising the  background. In a portrait of a woman  I know all the settings are of soft  brown velvets and tawny furs, Just  lighted by the gleam of the gold chair  she sits In and of a tall copper vasp  at her ..>uc. It brought out and yet  harmonized with her eyes and hair.  Yet that woman has the ill taste to  have her drawing rooms furnished In  blue. They don't exactly quarrel with  her coloring, but they make her just  'commonplace. In the picture she Is distinguished simply because of those  tawny browns about her.    ,  "The woman who has Titian red hair  must have a Titianesque background  of soft ruby and gold velvets. The  pastel girl, with her pale golden hair  and light blue eyes, would bo extinguished In a room of warm colors. Settings of pastel blues, pinks or greens,  on the contrary, bring her out and  make her lovely and alluring. It Is  perfectly marvelous ^that women don't  consider their coloring more in furnishing their homos. That's why they need  beauty specialists to do it for them."  "But what are people to do," asked a  listener, "when there are daughters  who differ in their complexions? Shall  papa furnish the drawing' rooms to  suit the pastel daughter or the Titian  daughter? Shall he buy draperies to  'go with' the blond or the brunette?"  "That would be a problem," replied  the beauty specialist  A WOMAN'S INFLUENCE.  Effect It Produced on Her Husband's  Business Affairs.

Presently a blinding  flash of lightning, followed by a deaf-  erring peal of thunder, swept through  a narrow window above the scene  dock and illuminated the . stage.

A cheese expert has the following  to say about Roquefort cheese:  "To make Roquefort cheese we must  have the proper raw material���������sheep's  milk. Of course wo have sheep in  America, but.show me a Yankee farmer who would go to the trouble of milking sheep! It Is even too much for  him to milk cows, and it is the standard lamentation of all our farmers  that the boys, even if they stay on the  farm, do not want to do any milking.  Before they do such kird of work they  worrld rather go to a business school or  a college where they study agriculture,  chemistry, etc.  "How is Roquefort cheese cured?  The mold in the cheese is prodrrced by  moldy, breadcrumbs which are ground  to a green dust and mixed in the  cheese curd. The country around  Roquefort is very rocky. The limestone rocks are full of crevices and  caves, which draw In the warm air in  summer, give It out in winter, and vice  versa.  "These caves have been provided by  nature and improved by cellars that  Have' been built in such a way that  these natural currents of warm and  cold air pass through them, where  Roquefort cheese is cured. This Is tho  way that Koqiicfoit-clicese Is"ripened  and pels Its peculiar flavor and character. It is all very well for the scientists to study the chemical proces?  which the cheese is undergoing, but to  produce this process in an artificial  way is another question. Nature is  the best chemist.  'The manufacture of Roquefort  cheese has been tried in America, but  (hi* manufacturers did uot make much  of a success. Xobody manufactures  Roquefort In America at present. We  know of one manufacturer who tried to  make Roquefort cheese of goats' mils.  He boasted especially that he would  rise only the milk of 'imported' goats,  .lust think of the idea! Imported goats  grazing on American pastures were  expected to give better flavored milk  than domestic goats. It Is the climate,  the special soil, atmospheric influences,  etc.. wDich produce the One fragrant  grass. Tbe milk of the cows or goats  or sheep is naturally the product of  the grass they are eating, the water  they are drinking, and neither this nor  tho climate nor the country can be imported to America���������only the product  which the climate or country produces.

"Then," said Abernethy, "1 recommend you to make  your exit by the same way." He refused to attend George IV. until he  had delivered liis lecture at the hospital, in consequence of which he  lost a naval appointment. To a lady  who complained that on holding her  arm over her head she felt pain he  said, "Then what a fool you must be  to hold it up 1" He was fond of calling people fools.

'A .farmer of immense bulk came  from a distance to consult him, and,  having fiver, an account of his daily  meals, which showed an immense  amount of animal food, Abernethy  said: "Go away, sir! I won't attempt to prescribe for such a hog!"  A loquacious lady he silenced by telling her to put out her tongue. She  having done so, "Now keep it there  till I have done talking," said Abernethy.

Being called as a witness in  a lawsuit to testify concerning the  reputation of the defendant, the lawyers on both sides failed to obtain a  direct answer to any of the questions and ' finally appealed to the  court.  [Regarding the man** sternly, the  judge said in his most impressive  tones:, "Witness, I am going to ask  you a question, and I want you to  give me a direct answer. Is the defendant a good man?"  "Them that likes him says he is;  them that don't says he ain't," was  the reply.  Still   Useful.

Nerve force  can only be created from rich, red  blood. -  Make the blood right and you cure  diseases of the nerves, such as headache, indigestion, sleeplessness, irritability, weakness of the bodily organs, prostration and partial paralysis.  This is theNjnly way actual cure  can possibly be' brought about and  because Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Food  is a great blood buildei it accomplishes wonderful results in the cure  of diseases of the nerves.  Mrs. Nooran, 19 Sullivan street,  Halifax, N. 8., writes:���������  "My daughter was troubled last  spring and summer with tired, listless feelings. She seemed to have no  energy, was very pale, had no appetite, and became very nervous and  weak. We were much.alarmed about  her, as nothing seemed to do her any j  good. It was not long, howevar, after  beginning the use of Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food until we began to see n  marked improvement in her condition.  Her color got hotter, she gained in  weight and vigor, and her whole system seemed to be. built up. Sho is  quite well now, and we join in strongly recommending Dr. Chaso's Nerve-  Food."  The old saying that "an ounce of  prevention is worth a pound of cure"  is, nowhere so applicable as in diseases  of the nerves, and there was never  so effective a preventive as Dr, Chase's  Norvo Food, This is boing proven  ovory day in thousands of casp.

In Belgium the railroads have a  systematic method of collection of  newspapers left in tliD cars, and the  papers are afterward turned to account. The year's collection, it is  said, amounts te 100,000 kilograms or  about 100 tons. After being reduced  to pulp the paper is remanufactured  into rough paper for waybills of the  state lines, and the tickets are also  said to be obtained from the old  newspapers.
