KILLED AT PHOENIX  Dick   Peterson,   a   well-known  resident of the town was the victim of a dreadful accident, in the  Granby mine, early last Thursday  morning. From the evidence given  at the inquest it transpired that the  deceased and another man named  R. O. Vick were engaged in their  usual vocation [of blasting in stope  193, No. 3 tunnel.   Peterson was  occupied in loading a round of nine  holes, and apparently was engaged  on the seventh when a shot waa  heard by his partner who went to  inquire the reason.   On arriving at  the spot he found Dick lying about  fifteen or twenty  feet   from the  holes   suffering   from terrible injuries.   He immediately went for '  help and on returning found Peterson had rolled fifty feet .into the  chute.    Dr. Dickson was quickly  on the scene and the injured man  was removed to the hospital where  he expired about three hours afterwards.  The deceased was unusually well  known to everyone in the camp and  a few hours previous to the accident was occupied in taking tick-  eta at the rink on tho occasion of  the hockey match.

A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that the editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  There is no subject more solemn  or more important than that of the  influence which we exert, for good  uv for evil, one upon another. If  -ie obey the law we are the cause  <���������: others doing the same. There  ! far more intercourse and sym-  r.ilhy between men now than in  ihe distant past. In these dayB  (Mir lives, work and duties are in-  avtricably complicated, so that in  ���������ill we do and in all we teach we  influence, consciously or unconsciously, many who we know not  face to face. Whether we will or  not we are always affecting those  around us, always transmitting  good or evil. We cannot be fools  or profligates without cursing men,  and we cannot be wise and pure in  thought without blessing them.  Let us strive to convince the ignorant among us, the dark aud disgraceful mass around ub.  In Europe, where population is  much denser than in America,  building laws are much more strictly enforced. Consider, for example, the city of Frankfort, which  has a population of 350,000. * The  city is divided into three districts.  In the central district, buildings  sixty-five feet high and containing  five Btories' may be erected. Not  more than three quarters of the  site may be built on. In the  middle district, buildings may only  be of four stories including the  basement, and, in the outer district, the limit is three Btories.  Frankfort is only one of many  cities in" Europe which possess wiBe  building lawB, that are strictly  enforced. Canada would be wiser  to learn city planning from such  sources rather than from the  "mushroom cities" of America.  Thinking Themes  There iB a sort of communion in  nil the great and stable objects of  N.;iuire. Each one seems a meet-  iM!.' place of souls, a permanent  KiMiiorial of them that are gone, a  .lint of reunion for all now living,  a Hiallange and a beacon for all to  coine.  Tt is not my moon, it is humanity's moon; and all lovers from  China to Dawson City, touch hands  there upon her brazen shield.  Tt is hot my oak. like my coat  or hat; I do not use it and throw it  away, it uses me; generations of  past glances and words cluster as  spiritual fruit on its branches.  So of the stars wo say how many  view them and what innumerable  sighs ascend to them., until they  cease to be mere matter and become burning candles of human  aspiration, lighting heaven's altar.<  There is this charm about an old  castle or wall or other man-made  thing, that it is all crusted with  human feeling.  For no thing is merely what it  is; it is what souls have made of it,  with their dreams and pains and  loves.  Alexander Smith, the gentle  Scottish poet, wrote, "Ploasantest  of all I find it lying awake at midnight to catch, muffled by distance,  the thunder of the northern sea,  and to think of all the ears tho  sound has filled."���������Dr. Frank  Crane.  The Real Dope  A most amusing incident is just  to hand from France. The famous  Albi glass works, owned and run  by the work people themselves,  are the scene of a strike! The  story is this: The works were  purchased in 1S96 for 860,000 by  the Socialists and handed over  bodily to the workpeople. At  first all went well; then Socialism  began to find its feet. The old  hands started to exploit the newcomers with all the ferocity of  hardened capitalists. Men began  to take holidays when and as they  chose. The output diminished and  the revenue decreased. Then the  Paris committee,- in whom the  works are vested, stepped in and  tried to restore order out of a  chaos, by regulating wages and  hours of labor, while the men were  informed that the habit of knocking off work as the fancy took them  was detrimental to the interests of  the. concern, and could not be  tolerated. Could free born Socialists lie down under this impertinent interference with their liberties?  Never! They went on strike and  extinguished the four furnaces!  It will cost something like $10,000  to start them again, and when the  workmen get tired of twiddling  their thumbs and come back to  work this sum must come out of  their pockets. And this is Socialism in practice!  Reindeer in North America  The Buccess which lias followed  the introduction of reindeer into  Alaska is Bhown in the fact that  there are now 10,000 of the useful  animals in the territory, about  9,000 of which are owned by the  natives. The government gives  reindeer to [Eskimos who . have  qualified themselves to care for  them.  The largest holder of reindeer is  an Eskimo woman who is said to  have a herd of more than thirteen  hundred, which she has reared  from a small flock. She has trained eight of her own people in tho  propagation aud care of those useful animals and sent them out,  each with a small herd, for a beginning. She now has the ninth  in training. This is doubly interesting, as it shows the development of a wonderful industry for  Alaska, and the surprising mental  and moral qualities of an Eskimo  woman.  In Newfoundland and Labrador  Some scientists are claiming that  blondes are more easily affected'by  alcohol than brunettes, but I am  sure that complexion or type of  beauty has nothing to do with the  digestive organs or brains of either  sex.  Wine has been made since the  world began. Tho ninth chapter  of Genesis speaks of Noah's planting his vineyard, and drinking of  his wine.  'Tis to be hoped, however, that  in those primitive days their wine  was but grape juice unfermented.  In my observations I have learned that the cleverest people are  more easily affected by a glass of  wine than stupid people.  People with active bruins need  nothing to stimulate, them moro  than a . little appreciation and an  intelligent listener. An argument  will intoxicate a genius far quichor  than a glass of wine.  Clever people should never drink  anything with alcohol in it, for the  stimulation accruing from it is  liable to cause them to exaggerate  and magnify their ideas to the un-  believeable point.  We often hear people say: I can  drink any amount of wine without  having it affect me in the. least.  That is true in many eases, but  those people have a numb brain to  begin with.  If you will observe you will  notice that such people are dull  and stupid naturally, and altlio  the alcohol does not intoxicate  them, it generally makes-them  quarrelsome and stubborn to an  unpleasant degree.  I bave never seen a well person  to who alcohol in any form was  beneficial. In fact, all of the  clever people whom I know are  total abstainers.  Any woman who has even a  suggestion of beauty, and every  woman has it in one way or another, should avoid any drink containing alcohol.  Blonde or brunette, red headed  or gray, the rule applies to all, that  alcohol will destroy all beauty of  mind,and body.  Few people know from what  alcohol is made. That it is made  from grains, fruit and vegetables,  tbe main staff of our diet, is misleading. Alcohol is made from  decayed matter and decay of any  sort is poisonous.  Whether blonde or brunette,  clever or otherwise, my advice to  all women is to avoid alcohol as  you would poison.  No one needs a stimulant. They  often think that they do, but a  brisk walk in the fresh air is all  the stimulant that any normal person requires for any sort of work.  Thero is moro exhilaration and  inspiration in God's air than in all  the drink products known.  Remember: The stimulant that  brings the blood to the cheeks  steals it from the brain.���������Lillian  Russell.  from land speculators and to make  certain that all the town sites and  necessary terminals along the road  will be in the hands of the government. Official notice of the intention of the government has already  been given through the Canadian  Gazette.  If this,action had been taken by  the old government, as it should  have been, the Canadian people  would have been .saved many  thousands of dollars. Mr. Cochrane finds that the necessary terminals for the road at Le Pas will  cost the country a big sum running  into the tens of thousands. The  property was all allowed to fall  into the hands of private owners,  and as land has been booming at  the now terminal the cost for yards,  etc., will be heavy. Mr. Cochrane  when he found tho state of affairs  which existed arranged with Hon.  Dr. Roche, Minister of the Interior, to havo a strip reserved for  the government. Tho Minister of  Intorior heartily approved and the  necessary order has now been  issued.  Farm Wood-Lots  Farm wood-lots aro being steadily depleted in tho older portions  of Canada. In Ontario, for example, the statistics compiled annually by the Bureau of Industries  show that there has been a decrease in area of over thirty-six per  cent, during the past twenty years.  Already there are, in some portions  of the province, indications that  wood for local uses is becoming  very scarce. Planting is being restarted to in many places, but so  far this has been largely under  government supervision. Such  work, will, for many years, be too  costly for the average farmer to  carry out.  In.Quebec, too, there are indications that wood lots are failing.  The provincial government maintains a staff of lecturers aud instructors to encourage farmers to  take better care of their woodlands. Further a Township Forest  Reserves Act was passed in 1911,  which aims at providing farmers  with timber iu districts where it is  scarce. Prince Edward Island has  also been practically stripped of its  once splendid forest cover.  There can be little excuse for  such a condition of affairs. Almost  every farm contains a piece of poor  land that could profitably be maintained in bush. A ten or fifteen  acre wood-lot under proper management would supply the average  farm with wood, poles, etc., in perpetuity.  When it is remembered that  reforestation is a very slow process, aud that it is a problem which  will ere long force itself upon the  people in many sections, the wisdom of avoiding all unnecessary  destruction of wood is plainly evident.  alphabet as he had repeated it.  Thus the principle of the phonograph���������the registering and the reproduction ot the voice's vibrations  ���������was discovered through the cut-  ing of a finger. It was Edison's  finger, though, that was cut.  Smith's or Brown's might have  beeu quite hacked off and no phonograph would have resulted.  The Phonograph  No Land Grabbing  An important step has been taken  by Hon. Frank Cochrane, Minister  of Railways, with a viow to protecting the Government and the  public along tho lino of the new  Hudson Bay railway from Le Pas,  the western terminus, to Port  Nelson, the ocean port.  The Government has decided to  reserve a strip of land a half mile  wide on each side of the railway  from Le Pas to Port Nelson. The  intention is to protect the public  Money in Cattle  At a banquet held in Winnipeg  recently, Pat Burns, familiarly  known as Alberta's cattle king,  was one of the chief speakers.  Discussing the question of cattle,  Mr. Burns spoke regretfully of the  fact that whereas he used to be  able to export animals to Europe,  ho now had to import not only  cattle, but poultry, butter and eggs  from the United States and Australia. "It seoms perfectly absurd," he said, "that in a splendid  country like Canada, capable of  supporting unlimited supplies of  live stock, which would thrive on  produce now destroyed in large  quantities, we should be bringing  iu train and shiploads from the  other end of the world." The  only bright spot about the nibject  was that the western farmers .were  gradually turning their attention  to mixed farming. With prices of  live stock in all directions mounting, thero was a splendid chance  for men who could tackle this industry.  As showing the ease with which  owners could dispose of their cattle,  he mentioned that only a few  weeks ago one large breeder drove  into Medicine Hat 2,000 head of  cattle and pocketed nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

Wood Paving      ���������  The Forest Branch of the Department of Lands expects to issue,'  shortly some interesting material  on tbe subject of wood-paving. A  letter has just been received from  Mr. C. H. P. Goss, of the Forest  Products Laboratory Portland,  Oregon, promising the results of  the experiments being conducted  by the lumbermen and civic authorities iu Seattle. The noise of  the brick pavement is very disturbing aud the people are looking  to the vast accessible supply of  Douglas fir, from which blocks  can be made, to solve one of the  city's problems.  British Columbia may find very  soon a great market for Douglas  fir in the form of creosoted blocks  if the paving experiments prove  successful. ' The prairie towns, to  say nothing of the coast cities, are  due to undergo wonderful, development, and western wood may  prove no small factor in assisting  i i  business and pleasure traffic.  Then the Forest Branch comes  into its products laboratory very extensive investigations will bo made  on all matters such as these. It  seems unreasonable that there  should prove to bo a local supply  of good paving material, recourse  should be had to that which requires to be brought from gieat  distance.

Sabbath Desecration  An accident���������a cut on tho finger  ���������caused Edison', to invent the  phonograph or talking machine.  Mr. Edison told the story of this  invention to a reporter. At the  time, he said, he was singing into  a telephone, and in. the telephone's  mouthpiece he had placed, for safe  keeping, a fine steel point. Suddenly this point cut bis finger. He  found to his surprise that it had  been moving here and there and  roundabout, guided by the vibration of his [voice.  Ho placed a strip of yellow paper  under the steel point, replaced it  in tho mouthpiece and said the  alphabet. The steel while he spoke  ran over the paper, and for each  letter of the alphabet it made a  different mark or scratch.  This is what Mr. Edison had  hoped for. He now held the steel  point Btill   and  drew  the  paper  scratches slowly over  it.

Now Blanche was fifteen, he was twenty-five, and Phyllis  was���������Jack refused to consider Phyllis'  increasing age. He had been in love  with her .to such detrimental effect  that his father had found business for  him In a distant city aud hoped Hie  boy would forget his sweetheart.  But Jack was obstinate and would  not forget It was his Wendell obstinacy that compelled hlni to hiiuiit  Phyllis Lambert's steps until she hair  laughingly promised to wait for him.  She had given him a bunch ot forget*  menots. and he had gone away happy  as a king, and he had stayed away,  cheerfully working to make something  of himself for Phyllis' sake.  Thero was no objection to '.Phyllis  Lambert except the difference iu their  ages. Phyllis was sweet nnd fair nml  very loveable If inclined to bo some  what shallow and nerveless, but .luck's  parents ever held before hlni tlie fact  that by the time he was ready to'marry her his bride would be thirty-live  or forty years old and "look It. too."  as his mother ndded emphatically. It  was perhaps unfortunate, under tin-  circumstances, that Jack should appear young for his age and Phyllis old  for hers.  But a letter from Phyllis had  brought him home flying now. She  had changed her mind. She did not  want to marry any one at present.  She did not love hlra as she should,  and she preferred thnt their engage  ment should end. And she retnrnpd  Jack's letters nnd the ring he hnd Insisted npon placing> on her plump,  white finger and wan "his atncew  friend, Phyllla Lambert"  So Jack had come flying home, sstou-  Ishing his parents, who evidently knew  nothing about the broken engagement.  He had hurried through lunch, and with  sonie incoherent remark about a walk  in-the woods he had plunged Into the  path that led to Phyllis' woodland  kindergarten., At the brookside, where  the path diverged toward the school,  he had paused' and thrown himself  down. Then it was that his bitter remark had found a hearer In the person'  of the prettiest girl be had ever seen.  As a matter of fact,-Jack Wendell had  been practically blind since he waa flf.  teen���������he had had no eyes for any other  girl than Phyllis.

There was a pause while she daintily  bunched 'her flowers -and tied the  bunches with long, tough blades of  grass.  "I suppose I ought to go away and  leave you alone. You were here first,"  observed Jnck without-moving from  his comfortable position. His back  was against a tnll chestnut tree.  " "Suit yourself," said the girl .carelessly. "If you were a perfect stranger  I might object ��������� As it is"���������  "As it is?" interrupted Jack, beginning to be interested. '  "We know each other well.

You  were; eight years old. and 1 was only  five. .It was,at,Miss Quilty.'s school."  "At Miss Quilty's school���������ah, yes!"  Jack was scanning her face to discover  some .'trace, of a little schoolmate of  seventeen years before.

The girl's head was bent over her  flowers.  . "All but your name," lied Jack cheerfully. It was remarkable how little he  was thinking about Phyllis Lambert  now. ,"l know it isn't Susie," he added  thoughtfully.  "Yes?" ,  "I'm sure. It must be Angela!" he  declared at last. |  The girl burst into merry, tinkling  laughter, showing a double row of  pearly teeth.

Before they  reached   the  brook   they   turned  and  went away by another path.   The girl  looked  after  them.    Then  she gazed  straight ucross the water into Jack's  bewildered eyes.  "That was my father and"��������� she hesitated. At that instant she was smitten with a vague recollection of Jade  Wendell's infatuation for Phyllis Lambert.

Since these specimens wero  placed on exhibit they have been  creating much interest among the  mining fraternity, as thoy are  representative of the discoveries  in the latest now strike in British  Columbia.  The high grade nature of the  specimens is amazing to those who  are familiar with tho rush to that  district a few months ago. These  ore specimens have been awaited  -with a great deal of interest in  mining circles.  Reports first received were to  the effect that the excitement at  the new strike was a gold rush.  But these specimens, though they  do not bear ont the first impressions, still are of sufficient value  to create the same kind of excitement among mining men as the  high priced gold metal itself would  Sunday afternoon a slide came  down on the Goodenough, in the  Slocan, crushing in the blacksmith  shop at the mouth of the tunnel.

"It's���������it's indecent to.  talk about a man like .that when he  can't understand."  "Don't jiggle your pompadour crooked, Aunt Ellen," said Miss Dressel  calmly. "Don't worry.

Now  for my last fee���������almost���������on foreign'  soil."  The train had hardly come to a long;  screeching stop in the great station at  Hamburg .when the door of the carriage was jerked violently open and a^  young man pulled the German out  with a hearty grip, exclaiming in English:  "We're In luck. There was a stateroom unengaged on the Kaiser Wii-  helm, and we can sail four days earlier  than we expected. Good luck, man!  Why don't you say something instead  of looking at me like a dazed idiot?"  The German pulled himself together  with a noticeable effort and began to  stammer out something in German,  when the other interrupted hlni Impatiently.  "Aw, cut that out! You know perfectly well I can't understand a word  of German.   Never mind; come along!"  The young German flushed red, and  with one appealing look straight Into  tho eyes of the astonished Miss Dressel he picked ,up his suit case and was  soon lost to view in the hurrying  throng.  Miss Dressel silently picked up her  luggage, carefully avoiding her aunt's  eye, and for a minute after leaving  tho carriage she looked helplessly about  her. Then the label "Berlin" on a  carriage caught her eye, and without  a word to her puzzled relative she took  her by the arm, raced her across tho  station and pushed her In, stumbling in  herself, just as the guard .put his hand  on the door to close it  "Why ��������� what��������� where"��������� said Miss  Vanstrum.  "I don't know," said her niece des-  perntely, "but most anywhere out of  Hamburg."  "But our steamer!" gasped Miss Vanstrum.  "What's losing a steamer, Aunt Ellen, compared with my peace of mind?  I'd no more sail on tbe Kaiser Wllhelm  now than I'd fly. Aunt Ellen, you're a  Jewel not to say, 'I told you so,' nor  even to look it"  "You haven't given me time," laughed Miss Vanstrum, "but I must say I  certainly think it There, I'm glad  we're off at last I don't think I myself care to come face to face with thai  young .fejlow again.'!  It was tho evening or the last musicale of the season at tho Whl'������  House, and an unwonted air of anticipation pervaded the brilliant throng as  it gathered in the great east room.  "They say she has one of the flnebt  "Virginia of Washington" in tho fle3D,  smiling acknowledgment to tho enthusiasm. One long look to assure himself  It was really she. and Anton von  Stosch sat back in his chair with folded arms and a looU of content upon his  face such as it hud not worn .In all the  mouths. since he had arrived at the  German legation. No sooner -was the  program ended than he made his way  to the blue room where Miss Dressel  was holding court and without delay  sought an Introduction.  "Oh!" said Miss Dressel, her hand  poised halfway toward his. "Why���������oh,  I'm glad to meet you. I'm sure," she  ended lamely ns she saw'her exclamation and gesture had attracted attention. Anton von Stosch looked straight  into her eyes as he took her bond...  "I am glad to meet you-again," he  said quietly. "1 have hunted this town  over to find you. May 1 call tomorrow?"  ���������<I_I_oh, I really don't know," said  Miss Dressel. Then she began to laugh  almost hysterically. "It's all too absurd  -and I can't talk about it now-and  please don't get offended, but 1 was so  surprised and"���������  "I'll wait," said Anton von Stosch,  quietly falling back. "It is quite  enough lo know that I have found you  at last."  Though he spoke no more to her that  evening. Miss Dressel was well aware  that he followed her from group to  group and from room to room, as If  fearful of losing sight of ber. As the  door of her carriage was snapped shut  Ills face appeared in the opening, and  be said quietly, but firmly:  "I shall do myself the honor to call  upon you tomorrow afternoon."  Hnd Anton von Stosch been less  eager or determined he would have  waited until the conventional hour of  calling and possibly have missed Miss  Dressel for his conventionality, but as  it was he arrived so early and unexpectedly upon the scene that he.was  ushered Into the library, where she sat  "I don't know how they do things In  'America," he said after the first greetings, "but I'm not going to lose any  more time. I desire much that you  should be my wife." he said simply,  dropping unconsciously into the German Idiom.  Miss Dressel had seen the night before just what the intentions of Anton  rvon Stosch were, and she had been trying to make up her mind whether to  let the affair run Its course or to evade  the issue by another flight. She was  taken wholly unnwares by the expedl-  tiousness of his attack.  "But I've only seen you three times  3n my life!" she gasped. "I can't con-  eider anything of the kind from a man  I know so little as that"  "You don't love another?" said Anton von Stosch, growing pale.  "No," said Miss Dressel, "but"���������  "Then I'll make my fight," said Anton von Stosch, "and I mean to win.  It's life or death to me, and no mau  who is a man will give up his life  ���������without a struggle."  That was the beginning of one of  the prettiest courtships that ever  crossed the horizon of Washington  life, and since Anton von Stosch was  a gentleman as well as a man of  promise In his chosen career the June  ���������wedding bells rang merrily over  smiles and happiness and genuine good  .-wishes.

When we tell you that Vinol is the  best remedy in our whole stock for  making weak, puny, ailing children  strong, robust and rosy, we are only  telling you what has been proved by  hundreds of mothers.  Mrs. W. O. Strother, Raleigh, N. C,  says: "My little girl, Hazel, has been  taking Vinol to build her up after a  severe spell of sickness. It has done  so much good by restoring her appetite and building.up her strength that  I think Vinol is the finest tonic ever  prepared, and I am telling everyone  about it."
