Ola Lofstad met with an accident while working in the Argo  tunnel last Friday. While holding the drill the hammer glanced  and broke a bone in his left arm.  The accident is rather trying to  Ola as he has practically ex*>  hausted his resources in the long  search for the lead in the Argo  group, and his friends should  now come forward and assist him  by buying stock in the Argo.  Mr. Lofstad is the most enthusiastic mining man in the country, and if we had 100 more like  him this would be the busiest  camp in the country.

GREENWOOD, FEBRUARY 27, 1913.  gen ins, poetry, fire and creative  skill called for, so much as in the  matter of making the past seem  alive.  The stories of Caesar, Tamerlane, Napoleon and Charlemagne  need retelling with every age.  The past ages need rciutorprota-  tions.  Lessing' says that "history  should not trouble with unimportant facts, should not burden the  memory, but enlighten tho under-  stflnding." And Goethe: "Tho  best thing we get from history is  the enthusiasm it arouses."

Socialism is not a thing,  it is a sentiment, ancl this sentiment,   unrestrained,   abetted and  evolved, would lead to revolution,  with dynamiting and destruction  as a prominet, legitimate and recognized  part of tho propaganda.  Safety lies in a balance of power  Thk real wealthy people of the  world are those who always have  good health.  Advuktisk your business or tho  majority of tho people will not  know that yon are living.  OvRii in Europe the people aro  still building war vessels, making  beer, and printing bibles to send to  the heathens.  SpuDrf grow best in a land of  cool nights. The soil is just right  for potatoes  where the pine tree  grows tall and fat.  We hear the robins singing  in  our backyard,  or was it just our  imagination grown vivid with the  thoughts of spring  There are about eight millions  of people in Canada and a few of  them have never read Greenwood's  leading excitement.  He who is   afflicted   with   the  acute gambling mania will always  end   in   ruin   and   misery.     No  chance to get away from  it, no  matter how rich you are when you  begin.    The  passion for gain and  easy  money  has   filled  a million  graves with paupers.    "Make no  haste to get rich'' is  orn "f the  wisest sayings that ever cama down  the pike of time.    Ho  who plays  the wheel, the bank, tho races, thc  bucket   shop,    poker,   the   stock  game, tho real estate delusion and  hundreds of other forms   of  the  same   evil   will  sometimes  have  chicken to eat,  but most of tho  time he will only havo the feathers,  with  regret,   misery remorse and  despair as side dishes.  Tho real test of what i.s good in  art or religion is this: Does it express gladness for life, does it prize  life and make it more worth while?  Anything whose summoned-up  influence is to turn ono sick at  life, is bad.  The greatest treasurer of tho  human race is its joy in living.  Whoever teaches men to get more  healthful pleasure out of any or all  tho functions of living is a benefactor of mankind. So that if one  will only tell us how co eat and  drink so as to experience in these  acts the greatest ecstasy without  injurious after eil'ects, he will bo  entitled to our thanks.  What we want to know is how  to eat happily, how to exercise with  most pleasure, how to love the  most joyously, how to work with  the maximum of delight, how to  play perfectly, and liow'to worship  and pray in gladness of heart.  Thero is but ono problem���������joy.  Instead of- good and wicked joy  wo might better say permanent and  temporary joy.  The apostle concentrated all the  commandants in one. when he said:  "Rejoicu, and again I say, rejoice." For when yon have learned how to rejoice you have learned  how to live.    Dr. Frank Crane.  Advice to Farmers  Thinking Themes  Tiiere is little sense in making  any more laws relating to the sale  of liquor for the laws we know  have are not enforced.  The liquor men in B. C. do not  like the idea of closing their bars  at 11 p. m. They should be thankful that Bowser does not put a ban  on the treating system���������one of the  greatest evils of the day.  In Edmonton a man was recently fined $1,000 for kissing a woman  without her consent. Oh, Dearl  and some chaps are refusing them  every day. This do be a queer  world if you do not know the combination.  Iif Indiana four years ago a man  had four acres of land, upon which  ho raised eighty bushels of potatoes to the acre.   Upon the same  land last year ho raised 240 bushels  of potatoes to the acre,   The fertilizers   ho used wore lime,   rock  phosphate   and a   littlo  manure.  The farmers in the west last year  would havo boon as well without  fertilizers judging from tho price  of spuds this winter.    Potatoes are  cheaper in Greenwood than thoy  are in Ontario.  There is a great opening for the  new historian.  The story of the actual facts of  the world is moro interesting than  any fiction.  The difficulty with  histories is  that they are usually written by  authors without imagination.    It  haa heen assumed that all that is  necessary in producing a history is  patient and  careful  compilation.  In talking about the dynamite Henco the Dryasdusts have pre-  outragoa in the United States the empted tho field.  Fra says that Union labor,  un-     The truth is, however, that in  checked, would develop  into vio-jno department of  literature  aro  When Solomon said that there  is nothing new under the sun, he  must of been getting old. For  the essential newness of everything  iB a sign of youth.  When you cease to wonder your  sjoul is getting grey-headed.  When you are no more surprised  you are getting ready to die.  Your real age is determined, not  by the years you' have lived, but  by the number of things that bore  you.  The round eyes and open mouth  of the child, his naive delight in  simple things, and the'unfailing  amusement he finds in things that  to us aro common place, are the  marks of life force.  Religion is worship, and the  essence of worship is wonder, and  wonder is youthful; so that the  more genuinely religious a soul is  the more it is evergreen.  Without a constant finding of  newness among men.and things  the soul dries up. To be proud  that you are no more surprised is  to be proud that your soul is  wrinkled and shriveled.  To the Superintendent of tho W.  P. & Y. R. Experimental Farm at  and near Skagway:  Dear sir:  Your letter in which you seek  general information regarding  agriculture and grazing was duly  received aud has been given careful consideration. While you  doubtless know all there is to be  known concerning the business you  have been selected to superintend,  otherwise some other fellow would  have been given the job, the fact  that you are seeking to add to your  abundant store of information, is a  good indication that you are the  right man in the right place. Some  fellows in your position would  scorn to ask advice, but would elevate their chins like a newly elected member of the Alaska legislature and don that expression  which says more plainly than  words, "I know it all."  Incidentally the Stroller   flatters  himself that you  wrote to him for  suggestions,   for if there are any  subjects on which he feels that he  is capable of giving advice,   it is  agriculture     and   grazing.     The  Stroller was reared  between plow  handles and cornhills.    (Tho latter  part of tho foregoing sentence does  not emply that he is a pumpkin.)  Tho smell or newly turned loam  is something deceiving, especially  when the plow penetrates the grave  of   a   dog.    In   such   spots   care  should bo taken to plant something  that matures on the vino or stalk,  rath or than in  the ground.    Tho  letter might havo an off flavor.  You aro wrong as to cabbages,  as tho same varieties are used both  on the table and in tho manufacture of cigars.  Low-necked squashes should  havo a shawl thrown round thorn  at night.  In shipping strawberries to  Dawson,  it would bo  well  to ac-  highly sensitive.  Long pants sliould bo worn on  celery, otherwise the shanks aro  apt to become weather stained and  tough.  If you desire to stand in with tho  management and   hold   your   job  another year,  burn your bed tho  first of Aril, stick the seat of your  pants full of carpet tacks, roll up  your sleeves,  spit on your hands  and go to it.    There will be plenty  oftime to rest and have your hair  cut next winter.    If the grim reaper gets you before fall, some other  fellow will be found to take your  place.   Between  the ages of fivo  and twenty the Stroller never slept  or sat down from the first of April  until after hog killing time in November.    Yon should  bo able to  stand it one or two seasons and until you can at least save up tho price  of a decently conducted funeral.  Tf you wish to retain your standing in church, it might bo best to  not bother with hogs or geese.  They are both highly demoralizing  and neither of them smell liko  crushed heliotrope.  The Stroller opines that tho soil  in the vicinity of Skagway is better  adapted to turnips aud rutabagas  than   to   the   growth   of   cereals.  However,  you  might see what it  will produce in the way of rolled  oats.    Adaptability of soil is something that should be studied  by  agriculturists.    There is soil in the  far south where neither corn or cotton will grow, yet some of the biggest disturbances the Stroller over  saw wero raised on that same soil.  Try what you can do with broom  corn and if it is a success, you can  find a good market for your brooms  in   Whitohorse,  especially during  the curling season.    If you wish to  raise hades, put an Irishman and an  Italian to work in the same field.  Any other information the Stroller may be. able to impart, will bo  cheerfully given���������remuneration for  the same to be taken in farm products. ���������E. J.

Modern Baths  To enumorate a tithe of the  bathing devices now used will convince one that bath rooms admit  of great additions to their usual  convenience.  The marble or tile lined rooms,  with their marble, gold plated and  silver tubs of millionaires have  nothing to recommend them more  than the pleasure they give to eye.  For the elaborate tub is no better  for all purposes of heat than the  porcelain, enamel and tin tubs.  The principal thing is to have  the bath room bright and sunny,  with floors or walls tiled or painted, making them impervious to  moisture. The carpeted bath  room is a nuisance.  A steam heator or a heat regie-  tor should bo in every bathroom  for the purpose of heating the  towels and linen to bo subsequently  used.  Tubs should always be long  enough \o lie full length in.  A shower bath is not necessary,  but a spray with flexible tubes is  indispensable for the hot and cold  douche. It does not give the system ono great shock liko the shower, but concentrates the stimulus  of tho jot where needed, gently or  otherwise.  In cases of rheumatism, paralysis or skin diseases the play of a  douche for five or fifteen' minutes  is a most effective stimulant.  A hot soaking for half an hour,  followed by a doucho for fifteen  minutes,  is given at many water  In a speech at Ottawa, Colonel  Hugh McLean says in part:  "It does seem to me," ho added,  "that the moral  effect would be  greater if Canada could build and  loan to  England three of the best  fighting ships that science cau de-  viso and money build.   This would  be better than two small fleet units  on tho Pacific and   Atlantic.    If  you are going to help England, lot  us give her what sho asks.     If  British power is broken Canada is  left defenceless and where would  Germany find a colony like Canada  or what would keep the Japanese  from landing on the Pacific coast.  "Ship-building," he said, "isbeing carried on in tho navy yards of  Great Britain and Germany with  feverish haste, and why?   Is it for  peace or war, or simply for naval  reviews?     In   1890   the   German  fleet was the smallest in European  waters.    In contrast  with this we  havo the German fleet of today,  which is second only to that of  England.     Having this pre-eminence among the nations as a naval  power, she already  possesses the  largest army in the world.    By her  new 1912 Naval Law Amendment  Act, Germany is directly and deliberately challenging England as  regards naval supremacy.     England's sea power is a  necessity.  To the" Germans,  supreme   as   a  military nation, it is a luxury.    It  is a means to an end; and that end  is, I believe, the destruction of the  British Empire,  the disruption of  the    French    Republic   and   tho  domination of the world.  Germany,   when she set out to  establish a navy she set apart one  thousand  million  dollars; by her  amendments to the Navy Act she  has set aside $500,000,000 more.  She if   pressing forward   in  this  race, confident that she is now entering upon the last lap.   Sho is  mortgaging so much in the contest  that she must either achieve victory abroad, or meet tho storm of  Btrife which her policy has and is  still creating at home.   She is sotting up within four hundred miles  of England a fleet placed on.a..war  footing; a more effective fleet than  Great Britain has maintained in  tho    past   as   regard   immediate  readiness   for war,  and she  has  this powerful engine of war within  a day's Btoaming of tho month of  tho.Thames and here in Canada wo  are looking on calmly as though  the    millenium   had   dawned; as  though Krupp's  works,  with its  thousands of workmen wore busy  making plough shares and bathing  machines;   as though   the  great  shipbuilding   yards   of  Germany  wore engaged in building racing  TULAMEEN HOTEL  Princeton, B.

Continuing he said:    "The question  for Canada to decide is not  the definition of the word 'emergent'; but what is our duty?   Is it  not clear that our duty is to give  every assistance in our power to  Great Britain at the present time?  Not only, as it is put in the Admiralty memorandum, 'for the material benefit,'  but   for   the moral  effect it will have on Germauy and  tho other nations of tlio world.    It  would seem to me that the moral  effect would bo very much greater  if the   world knew at once that  Canada was united in building and  giving to England three of the best  fighting ships that science can de-  viso and money can build.   This  surely  would bo gnjator than   a  small   baby   navy,    with   dreadnoughts to be built in*Canada, and  to be stationed on the Pacific and  Atlantic coasts.    We should   let  the world know that we are prepared  to help to support British  sea power- that wo will stand by  England as she has stood  by us.  "When Groat Britain goes to war,  Canada goes to war as well.    The  destiny of Canada ia involved in  the result of the war. If Brithh  power is broken Canada is left defenceless. We would be eight  millions of people in possession of  the richest half continent in the  world, and with nn fleet.  "If Germany were mistress of  the sea,  where could she find a  better colony than Canada?   What  would   keep   the Japanese  from  Landing on the Pacific coast, or  how long would it be before tho  billions of regenerated China would  flow into our tempting   prairies?  It is said that we could rely on the  Monroe doctrine, and tho United  States would protect us.     What  would be the price that we wonld  pay?   Annexation of course.   Tho  question for us,  then, would  be  whether we would be Germans or  Yankees.    Of course, we are not  frightened today; no one is frightened at the present time.    Why  not?   Because of the great white  squadron���������and   we pay   not  one  cent towards its Bupporfc and contribute in no way to its strength.

'Tls hard to part when friends are dear;  Perhaps 'twill cause a sigh, a tear,  "When I see you again"���������  Mr. Bangs' voice, which had been  'growing tremulous while repeating the  lines, gave out altogether, nnd with a  silent pressure of hands the chums  parted.  *       *       * ���������      *  ���������    *       *       *  "Mr. Bangs, I hnve sent for you at  Bob's suggestion���������indeed, his request.  Our honeymoon had scarcely passed  before he was called away, on business.  He told me that you would return soon  after his departure and he could rely  on you to hell) me out of my loneliness during his absence."  "1 shall be very happy, I assure  you." replied-Mr. Bangs, belying his  words by his expression.  "Bob knows perfectly well that he  can trust me, nnd, as for you, he says  you have no use for any woman except  to pass time. I shall expect you to be  devoted to tiie."  The only one of these statements  that was spoken ��������� with apparent sincerity was ihe last. It doesn't matter  what persons say to each other; it's  how they say it. Mr. Bangs made a  .short call, during which he said a num-  bei ol tilings, all ot which were untrue.  At any rate, they were intended to be  untrue.  An attractive woman doesn't need to  deceive ii man ns to her intention to  conquer him. He wishes to be conquered. Indeed, ho can't be conquered  fast enough to satisfy bis impatience.  .Martin Bangs had no occasion to fear  matrimony with a married woman, but  the idea of a possibility of his getting mixed lu an affair with Ills friend's  wife was horrible to him. During the  period that he was engaged In preventing Mrs. Bangs from being lonely he  iniido several attempts to get out of  her clutches. On one occasion he reft  her vowing that he would not remain  under her roof another moment or ever  return to her again, and In less than  half an hour he was ringing the door-  hell furiously.  What 'made the matter worse was  that Mrs. Morrow did not appear to  feel the slightest compunction at what  she was doing wilh Mr. Bangs, or have  any fear that she should come to prefer  him to ber husband. She would lower  her eyes before his gaze then look up  and laugh at him. In fact, she was  teasingniin. And all the while she would  persist in referring to Bob Morrow aa  the best man, tho finest man, the loveliest man in the world, and any woman  who preferred any other man to him  couldn't have any taste.  Oue evening when they were together  she announced that Bob had written  .that he would be at home in a few  days. Bangs looked as if she had read  him his death warrant  "You   don't  seem   Joyful,"   she  marked.  "No I don't   I don't see how a mart  can feel joyful situated as 1 am."  "How are you situated?" ���������   ,  "In the first place, my feelings toward the man 1 love most in the world  are that I'd like to kill him."  "How awfully horrid!"  "In the second place, I feel that he.  would be justified in killing ine."  "Good,  gracious!     What  have your  done?"  "Nothing.   It is what I wish to do."  "And what do you wish to do?"  "Run away with his wife."  "You naughty man!   That" being the  case, 1 think you had better not coma1  here any more till after Bob's return."'  "I think I'd better never come."      i  "It's very' silly of you to want an-  other man's wife when there are so  many nice girls lu the world.   But I  thought you didn't wish to be married."  "I wouldn't in my senses."  "Just think of what you would havo  to give up."  No reply.  "The cocktails."  "Oh, Bob told you all that, did he?"  "And the wife's relations."  "I  knew he was not to be trusted  from the momeut he got engaged."  ���������  "Then you would  have to give up  your old friends; your wife would be  jealous of them."  "What a sieve a man   becomes as  soon as he Is married!"  "I wouldn't do it if I were you."  "I'm not likely to.   1 can't marry my  best friend's wife, and I don't wish to  marry any one else."  "Mr. Bangs I"  "What?"  "Yon men are humbugs!" J  "I know It"  "You don't know what you want."  "We certainly don't want a sweetheart till me know we can't get her."  "Bob turned out to be a seive, true  enough.    He was no sooner engaged  than he repeated to his fiancee word  for word the congratulations you offered him."  "The greater fool I."  '1 was present when he did It",  "Of course you wore!    How could  you have been somewhere else?"  "I'm not Mrs. Morrow."  "Not Mrs. Morrow!"  "I'm Mrs. Morrow's sister.

' ;       /  When   Morrow   came' home   thero  were criminations and recriminations  between the two men, .'but there was  no bitterness to them.

Li tho Boston Commercial, Geo.  L. Walker says that tho Gran by'8  bond issue did not take well in  t-peeulalive circles, duo to tlio fact  that it was not clearly understood,  and traders havo been selling their  holdings during tho past two  weeks. Evidently it would have  been more satisfactory to many  holders of the stock had tho'company gone on as it started and  paid for the development and  <:i|iiipinent of the Hidden Creek  property out of earnings. A large  majority of tho stockholders, how-  I'ver, wanted dividends.  [Jiifjiiestionably the ' policy of  capitalizing in part the new property is correct. If Granby were to  go on buying, developing and  equipping new mines as rapidly as  it could pay the Mih out.of earnings it might bo many years before  it would pay a dividend. Kather  than go to an extreme in this direction it appears to be the intention to meet half the Hidden Creek  expense from earnings and capitalize the rest.  The fact that one of the three or  four leading New York banking  houses underwrote Granby's bond  issue, a firm that had never before  been interested in coppers, is an  important point to keep in mind.  It means that Granby is making  new friends, strong and influential  ones. On any furuher reaction  the stock should be bought. It is  a good investment and a most  promising speculation.  There are twenty-five men working at the No. 7 mine with A. W.  Davis as superintendent.  The thirdj furnace is again in  commission at the Greenwood  smelter after being cold for some  time owing to the shortage of coke.  The purchase of the Voigt camp  by the B. C. Copper Co. haB beeu  advanced to a stage where both  parties to the deal aro no longer in  doubt as to the issue. The formalities of closing the transaction  are now progressing.���������Princeton  Star.  OOOOOCK>0<X>OCH>CK><>0<><K><K>C>000  f   B.C. MINING NEWS   |  OOCH>0<K>OCKX><>CK><>C><>CKK>00<><>0<>  During the past couple of weeks  a, great deal of attention has been  directed to the several groups of  claims on Rocher de Boule mountain just back of New Hazelton, or  more correctly speaking, New  Hazelton .Heights. They are the  Daily West, which is on 700 feet  fronVthe boundary of Now Hazelton Heights, ��������� the Ingineca Group,  Colin Munro and Dempsey have a  group adjoining, then comes Ger-  vais Group and next the Reservoir  Group owned by Halleron and  Thompson. Every one of these  groups are within a mile and a  half of the railway at New Hazelton and every ono of them can  land their ore at the railway by  tram.  Ih the Daily West group there  are four claims with good big veins  carrying high grade copper. Munro has samples taken from the  surface which run 870 including  gS in gold. This ore is the same  as found on the Rocher de Boule  group on the other side of the  mountain and further west.  In the Ingenica group there are  nine claims and considerable work  has   been   done   on   them.    This  group was located  two years ago  and  it will  bo worked rather extensively  this summer and early  spring.    There aro seven distinct  loads that havo  been   uncovered.  The main  lead is  fifty feet wide  and the average assay gives a return of $17.43 per ton witli about  $5 in silver and SO cents in  gold.  Another five foot lead gives assays  of ������24.40  with over $S iu silver.  When this proporty was first located tho surface outcrop gave a return of only   81.20,  but   it   was  traced   over   the   length   of   two  claims.    It will  average five feet  in width.    Practically all the work  has  been  done in the timber, but  the best showings wero just above  the timber line.    The property is  looking so good that Frank Brown,  who has the bond on the Owen  Lake property is trying to get a  bond on the Ingineca group also.  Then west of the Daily West  group and adjoining New Hazelton Heights is the group owned by  Mclntagert aud Ryan. On this  property some very high assays  were taken and the boys started a  tunnel to cut the vein. They  have made about 100 feet, but ran  out of funds, and for some time  they have been turning their attention to other things until they  are able to go back to the mine  again. They have a good showing  of grey copper.  Wilson Bros, and Jack Hogart  are also interested in claims on  this side of Rocher de Boule.  The biggest holdings are those of  Halleron and Thompson, owners  of Reservoir group. They have  eighteen claims which run down  to Mud Creek. This coming spring  these boys will devote]a great deal  of attention to this property and  open up as much as possible.���������  Omineca Herald.  that many Orientals have hereto  fore sought to take advantage of  the pre-emption law in securing  possession of provincial lands,  The Minister is also empowered  to allot pre-emption, if it is deemed  in the public interest, even in such  reserve localities as provincial  parks.

George E. Foster left this  month  for a six  month's.trip of  more than ordinary importance to  Canada.    He will visit New  Zealand, Australia and the Far East.  The immediate object of the trip is  to attend  tho sessions of tho Imperial Trade Commission, a body  appointed  by tho British government to mako a thorough inquiry  into the whole question of trade  Ottawa, Feb. 21.���������Walter Jones,  who has made a study for the conservation commission on the subject of fur-bearing animals, detailed the results of his investigation to the agriculture' committee  of the Commons. He illustrated  his remarks by lantern slides. It  was poiuted out that furs were a  staple of clothing in Canada, since  it was impossible apparently to  manufacture anything to take  their place. A tremendous change  in furs had taken place in the last  fifteen years, and today there was  really a crisis in the fur trade.  As an example of what could bo  done for fur-bearing animals, Mr.  Jones referred to the efforts of the  United States government prohibiting pelagic sealing, and thus  immediately increasing the number  of animals. Mr. Jones presented  tables showing the increased price  of furs during the last few years.  In the last two years, every leading variety of furs had increased  in price tremendously. In 1900  the highest price at which a silver  fox was sold was $2,822, and it  was raised on a fox farm by Chas.  Dalton, of Prince Edward Island.  Muskrat skins, worth fifteen cents  each in 1SSS, were worth $1.25  each today.  "Most all the furs worn by poorer people on the street today are  nothing but rabbit, and thoy pay  $15 to $20 for them," said Mr.  Jones. "They are called black  lynx. A person needs to be an expert to buy furs today."  In the last ten   years   it  was  pointed out, the number of fur-  bearing  animals   caught had decreased in  every   variety  except  skunk.   The outdoor life of the  people today was largely responsible for the greater demand for  furs.   The value of the fur trade  in Canada today was three or four  times tho value of wool and hides  of sheep in Canada.   Mr. Jones  described the possibilities of raising the Persian lamb in Canada.  This had already   been   done  in  Texas, ho said.   They were being  crossed with varieties of common  sheep.  Tht)   breeding   of   M no.

Miss Alta Abel, of West Baden, Ind.,  says: "I was a complete wreck, always tired, wornout and nervous. I  had to spend about one-third of my  time in bed and my life was not worth  living. Vinol, your delicious cod liver  and iron tonic, was recommended, and  it has done me more good than all the  medicine I ever took in my life. That  nervous and tired feeling.is all.gone.  I have gained in health, flesh and  strength, until I feel like another person."  Vinol is the most efficient strength-  creator for such women. It is the  medicinal elements of the cods' livers  contained in Vinol, aided by the blood-  making and strengthening properties  of tonic Iron, which makes it so far  superior to all other tonics to build  up health and strength for weak,  tired, ailing women.
