When a woman expresses a wish  her husband usually has to pay the  expressago.  The pretty girls whoso faces are  their fortunes soon go into the  hands of receivers.  When a tramp is asked to chop  wood ho is usually quite willing to  bury tho hatchot.  If a man begins to sing his own  praises you can drown him out by  blowing your own horn.

FATAL ACCIDENT  On the evening of June 11,  Joseph Davison, C.P.R. agent at  Midway, accompanied by his wife  and baby daughter started for  Greenwood on a gasoline speeder.  At a short curve opposite the office  of the B.C. Copper Co., the speeder  ran into the locomotive that draws  the ore train known as "White  Wings," of which Len Boomer is  engineer. The engine was running  about four miles an hour at the  time of the head-on collision with  the speeder. Mrs. Davison was  crushed so badly by the wheels of  the locomotive that she died at the  hospital in less than two hours.  The baby escaped with a few-  bruises, but Mr. Davison was injured so severely that his right  arm had to be amputated close to  the shoulder. He also sustained  minor injuries to his ribs and body.  He will recover if blood poisoning  does not set in.  The funeral of Mrs. Davison  was held on Saturday morning.

A. blue mark hero indicate that your Subscription has  become, deceased, and that the editor would onco moro  liko tn  commune with your collateral.  Tuiiiiii is room in B.C. for a few  buttermilk factories.  Evkn if woman did drive man  nut of Paradise she can get him  back again.  Tin! fool is always lnnking in a  mirror and mistaking other men  for himself.  in sports, they read books. Sometimes they read bonks in order that  thoy may havo something to talk  about,   tn secure  ammunition  for  In many parts of B.C. bacon and  pfras are still  one of the leading  (DO  breakfast foods.  It was ninety-eight years ago  yesterday since Napoleon drew his  ticket for St. Helena.  It is a popular saying in the  west tbat one drink is enough,  two are too much, and three are  not half enough.  Thkrk are more ways than one  of feeding a hen. A man in the  Slocan feeds his poultry upon boiled gophers.  Ik you would be happy don't  worry, be good, never take too  much or too little of anything, and  read regularly, Greenwood's leading excitement.  Thk real estate boom in the west  has dropped into the mud, and the  investing public will soon be again  turning their attention to mining.  We predict a great mining revival  in tho west, particularly in tbe old  camps of B.C.  At piesent there is used in Canada about 35,000 tons of zinc yearly. Zinc ore going into the United  States pays a duty, and when it  comes back in a manufactured condition duty has to be paid on this  side nf the line. It looks as though  it would be a wise move on the  part of the Dominion government  to build a lead and zinc smelter in  Canada.  That oncp famonB mining-camp,  Sandon, shows some signs of history repeating itsolf. There are  still a few canary birds and pianos  in the old burg, and .a few experimental farms; but an ace in the  hole is now only a phanton of the  past. The whiskey in some of the  saloons has grown mellow with  age, and when drank, it trickles  down the human winze like honey  and olive oil. The creek still runs  under the main street of the old  silver camp; but it has not yet  been buried by a snowslide, nor  raided by a band of suffragettes.  No ono was ever killed in the  camp by a street-car, nor run over  by an automobile. It is a reasonably safe place to live, and erelong  the boom will wander back again.  Thinking Themes  The book is passing. The magazine and newspaper are taking its  place.  Men read books to divert their  minds, to forget the present. It is  the constant effort of the human  race to escape tho actual; fortius  reason they get drunk, they engage  conversation. Sometimes it is to  acquire information. Little by  little the periodicals aro meeting  these wants more satisfactorily  than books.  The book is heavy to hold, inconvenient for tho pocket. Tho  newspaper can be carried easily.  The book is expensive" tho newspaper is cheap. Ono feels like a  criminal if he tears a page from a  book; there is no such feeling in  clipping from a newspaper.  The book is long: three or four  hundred pages. It is full of  irrevelant matter. A grain of  story is lost in a bushel of description. We wade through innumerable pages to be in at the death  as Old Sleuth nabs the Hmmal; to  witness the loves of Lady Vivan  and Lord Guy finally adjusted; to  see some aristocratic prevert walk  through infinite analysis to find his  soul, and finally eat poison. We  get the same thing everyday in the  newspaper in capsule form: juicy  scandals, the escapades of auto  bandits, the murder of police, tho  downfall of reputations.  The people in books aro fictitious; in newspapers they are real.  Books are filled with boresome  padding.' The author feels that he  must be literary. In newspapers  we get our romance stripped clean.  Here people write who have something to say.  Every newspaper is an epic  poem. There are the affairs of  nations, wars, council, popular uprisings, doing of kings, Chinese  mobs, suffragette outrages, Mexican barbarities.  The real Comedio Humaino is a  newspaper. In it you have human  race exposed. In its kaleidoscope  you see the striking shirt waist  girls, the drunken orgies of fools,  the thunders of ascetic moralists,  the various worlds of sport, of  finance, of the stage, of courts.  By the vast organisms of the  news the world is combed over  daily, and every nugget of human  interest picked out.  In itB feature service tho newspaper supplies us with philosophy,  the latest triumphs of science, the  vast discoveries in medicine, the  most recent theories of pedagogy,  with sermons, essays, short stories,  serial novels.  In the evolution of printing the  book was the first product, but it  was for the few; it Js giving place  to the newspaper, which is for the  many. A book is fortunate to  reach a circulation of 10,000. There  are many newspapers with a circulation of over 100,000; some periodicals have issues of over a million.  In all realms of human activity  aristocray is receding before the  advance of democracy. Tlie book  is the aristocrat; the nowspaper is  the democrat.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  TRAGEDY. IN WILDS  Some months ago wo published a  story which reached us from the  construction -camps on tho upper  Fraser, about a growfnmie tragedy  which centred around two inexperienced Frenchmen who wero cut  off in tho wood?; and suffered from  tbo pangs of hunger, until one. of  them became a maddened fiend  and murdered his companion to  devour his remains.  Tho truth of this terrible story  is borne out by thn arrival in  Vancouver of George LTnrwitz,  who visited the sconce and verified  the facts.  Tho tragedy was discovered by  Mr. P. G. Molvenzie, one of the  party of surveyors, who organized  a burial party of six white, men  and two India ns, and who gave  Mr. ITorwifc/. photographs of the  remains and of the burial party.  Mr. IJorwitz was working fnr a  contracting firm at Mile il" when  he first heard vague rumors nf the.  finding of the. partly eaten body nf  a man about twenty-four miles  west of tho iinn near Mile 100.  The report was denied by officials,  according tn tho story which Mr.  Horwitz tells to a coast contemporary, but when he was leaving the  country he encountered Mr. McKenzie and obtained confirmation  of the rumors.  From Mr. McKenzie and others  along the railway route, Mr. Horwitz learned that the, two men concerned in the horrifying affair were  supposed to have conic from Montreal and that somewhere along  the grade thero is supposed to bo a  man who knows their identity.  According to the information this  man was acquainted with one of  tho two and realized their inability  to cope with the adversities of life  in the wilderness.  When tho men started into the  remote region they were, without  adequate equipment for an ordinary prospecting or hunting trip of  short duration, and in spite of  warnings given by their acquaintances persisted in the reckless  virtue of attempting to subsist in  the wilds and successfully prosecute a trapping expedition. Trace  of the men were lost until the survey party reached the, vicinity in  which they erected a rude log  cabin as a base fnr this operations.  This cabin was located on a hillside, almost above the timber line  and in a region offering but slight  opportunities for their chosen pursuit.  Wheu thn surveyors reached the  cabin they wero surprised ' to note  no sign of life and began ' an ��������� investigation. They discovered the  frozen and partly dismembered  body of one of tho trappers half  hidden in tho snow.  The body was frightfully mutilated and thero was a deep gash in  the back of the head. On the door  of the cabin was scrawled in  French the almost illegible inscription, "Starved for nine days  went crazy." No supplies of any  kind wero visible. The men had  been without a stove, but in tho  centre of the hut was tho remains  of a camp fire. Nearby was a  rusty frying pan in which the men  were startled to find the remains of  human ribs.  The surveyors obtained boards  from their camp aud buried the remains in a rough box which they  constructed, marking the spot with  a cross.  Search failed to disclose any  trace of the man who killed his  companion, and the surveyors believed he wandered half-mad  through the timber until he perished from exposure.���������Fort George  wsm^gsmmmmnsmmmmmmimmmmmsvm9mmm.

The   seventh  annual   Congress  was held  in  Lethbridgo in  October with delegates from practically  every  American   state aud  from   seventeen   foreign   nations.  It was the most important gathering ever held in Alberta.    Though  its  work  had  nothing to do with  colonization the publicity given its  meeting was world-wide aud the  result is that Alberta is better aud  more    favorably    known    today,  especially in the   United    States  than over before.    Reports   from  all sections of the "United States indicate a very heavy immigration to  Alberta this year,   largely  exceeding that of 1912,   when the states  contributed    30,000     people   and'  810,000,000 in cash  and  effects to  the prosperity   of   this   province.  The Dry-Farming Congress will be  held this year in Tulsa, Oklahoma,  and  judging   from   Alberta's   results,   that state   will  reap great  benefit.  NEWS OF CARMI  The Emperor's Star  Herald.

Tho architect brought the plans to  him, and the Kaiser scratched out  what ho fancied before he gave  them the Imperial O. K. The  church was built. There was to  be a big gilt cross on the spire, and  it appeared in its proper place.  But, much to the general astonishment, when the cross was put up a  large, many pointed star was raised  above it on a heavy rod. The  Berliuers could not understand the  star. They inquired. The architect said the Kaiser had added  the btar to the plans.  The plans wore examined. Then  it was found that in revising them  tho Kaiser had let fall a drop of  ink from his pen, which hit the  paper just above the cross. The  architect studied a long time over  this blot of ink. There could bo  no appeal no inquiries. He finally  decided that tho blot of ink signified a star above the cross, and he  put tho star thero, making it to  correspond as nearly as possiblo  with tho outline of the blot.

In August of last year the laboratory  of the Society of Observatories, built  on the summit of Mont Blanc, was  siruc-1: by .lightning, with fatal results  to one of its occupants. .This building  is of wood, roofed-with sheets of copper, and Is not provided with lightning  rods. It was practically buried in snow  p.r tlie time of the disaster.  The famous .Tanssen observatory on  Mont Blanc was repeatedly struck, although it bore numerous lightning rods,  connected by cables to some rocks a  few hundred feet distant. This building was of wood and was built on the  snow. The effects of the lightning  were,extraordinary and appalling. The  metal tableware was frequently melted  or perforated. The bolts and nuts In  the walls were melted, the woodwork  charred, and the metal cap of the large  telescope was pierced with liol.es.  In 11103 a guide, one Felix Bozon, witnessed a brilliant electrical discharge  In the form of ribbons of fire which for  two' hours and a half continued to  play across the interior of the building, proceeding from oue of tlie^eables  connected with the lightning rods. In  1002 a ball of fire as large as a pi-  genii's egg wns seen to move slowly  ncroHK the room, then retreat for a distance and explode, giving a violent  shock to the persons present.  In 1007 a series of lightning strokes  occurred one evening at nearly regular  Intervals of a few minutes. Kach  stroke produced a deafening noise and  was attended by sparks like ller.v serpents, which shot through the observatory In all directions. This process continued nearly an hour.���������Chicago News.  "EXTENDING" CREDIT.  A   Kind  of  Banking That Didn't Appeal to the Grocer.

Alfalfa, perhaps the oldest of all cultivated forage or hay plants, has had a  History scarcely less Interesting than  that of the many nations which have  utilized It. Those nations have prospered almost in direct proportion to  the extent to which they have used  it- The name "alfalfa" comes from  the Arabs aud means "the best fodder." and in fact It appears to have  originated in Media or in some adjacent country, ns the folklore tales from  ;ands on different sides of this area  point toward Media as the place  whence It came.  The wars of the Persian invasion of  Greece took tlie plant to tin- hitler  country about HOO B. O.. it being the  custom for the advance emissaries to  precede the army and to plant fields  for the sustenance of the herds which  helped support the invading hosts.  From Greece it advanced to Italy and.  Spain by successive stages and was  taken to Old Mexico by the Spaniards  about 1519 A. D.  From there It was carried to South  America and later (185-1) entered California through the Golden Gate at the  time of the activities incident to the  discovery of gold In that state. Thence  It spread over tho irrigated sections  and more recently has continued Its  march eastward until now it is by far.  the most Important forage crop of such  states as Nebraska and Kansas.'���������Chicago News.

Not  very long ago a little schooner, dis-i  mantled and with Its rudder gone as  the result of a tempest, was drifted by  winds and ocean currents from Tahiti  to Hawaii after eighty one days. Hawaiian traditions declare that In ancient days people came from Tahiti,  drifting with the currents, and settled  .the islands. The adventure of the dismantled schooner seems to prove the  possibility of such a migration, and it  is suggested that the currents of the  Pacific, which have not yet been sufficiently studied, may throw much  right on the distribution of .the native  races among the island groups.���������Harper's Weekly.

Steel has invented an explosive called steelito that needs no  thawing and is practically smokeless. A company is being formed  in Nelson with a capital of $150,-  000 to manifacture it. It is likely  tbat a factory will be built at Nelson or Silverton at a cost of 8G0,-  000. A factory of tbat extent can  make ten ton3 of the explosive  every day.  It is reported that tho B.C. Copper Co., will resume operations in  a few  rlavs at  the  Lone Star and  Washington mines.  It is estimated that the Granby  has 7,000,000 tons of ore insight  at Phoenix, and 1G,000,000 tons at  Hidden Creek.  Recently tlie Greenwood smelter  has been using some ore from the  Yankee Girl at Ymir. This supply will be shut off as it runs too  high in lead, zinc and silver for  tlie local smelter to treat economically.  Tbe B. C. Copper Co. is highly  pleased with the showings on Copper mountain near Princeton, and  at least some of the bonds will be  taken up when they fall due. The  ore will bc milled on the ground,  and the concentrates shipped to tbe  smelter in Greenwood.  Chas. Davidson, John Beggs and  Jim Henson are making preparations to open up their Gertnde  claim on the south end of Copper  Mountain. The property has been  located three years and has been  opened up by extensive cut work  to definitely locate the ore, and  now that the owners have got their  bearings they will start to sink at  an advantageous point. Buildings  are now being erected and a cabin  will be built for Mr. Davidson's  family, who will bo taken to tbe  camp as soon as possiblo. The  Gertrude lies in the country between John Feeney'sQproporty and  the Gold Ax territory, and has  yielded some very good ore.���������Chesaw News.  Cutler T. Porter, tho well-known  Spokane    Mining    man.    passed  through Kaslo on Friday, en route  to Ferguson, where ho intends to  do assessment work on some claims  adjoining tho Silver Cup.    As soon  as the snow is sulliciently   gono  from tbo Hall creek basin to allow  of getting into tbo Wagner group,  be intends to make a start upon  tbo   season's   development   there.  Tbe  Wagner is  a silver-lead proposition owned by  Mr.   Porter, G.  Heney and  a  number of Spokane  associates.    Hitherto  it  has   been  hindered in its proper development  by reason of the difficulty of get-'  ting in supplies, let alone tlie possibility of taking out ore for shipment,   this  being  duo  to  lack of  trails.    The completion   this year  of a good trail from  Hoaly's landing, the head of  navigation on the  Upper Duncan river, to the mouth  of Hall  creek,   will go  along way  towards making the property more  accessible, although in itself but a  step toward tbe ultimate solution  of the transportation  problem facing owners of the many promising  silver-lead and gold-copper propositions of the Upper Duncan section.  Mr. Porter stated that what could  be accomplished up there this summer wonld  depend largely   upon  how soon the new trail, upon which  work  is now  underway,   can   be  completed,  as  on account of the  high altitude the season for mining  under present conditions is necessarily short.���������Kaslo Kootenaian.  above much advertised diggings,  from which it appears that their  present and prospective values have  been greatly exaggerated. It transpires that Silver Crook was pretty  thoroughly prospected in I SOS by  30 or 40 men, and the best pay then  was only $1.50 per day. Thero is  however, one glimmer of hope for  the unfortunates who rushed in  that some othor creek in that region may turn out to be worth  while, as experienced old-timers  havo the idea that the formation of  Dense and MoDaino creeks, where  much gold was obtained during tbo  Caaeiar excitement, may extend in  the direction of the Silver creek  district,  George W. Morris, a well known  resident of Stewart, arrived at  Telegraph creek on April Nth, and  proceeded to tbo diggings a day or  ho afterwards. His partner, Pink-  erton, remained near Telegraph  creek for a few weeks trapping.  Pacey al.so arrived in Telegraph  creek on May 1st after taking a  look at Silver creek, and on May -J  Ernie Armstrong and Louis Ann-  strong reached that point on route  to the placers.  It is to bo hoped tbat tbo many  adventurers who are now in tbe  boosted section will discover something which will enable them to recoup themselves for their labor and  expense.���������Stewart Miner.  The Slocan Mines.  The Canadian Mining Journal  states that while the London money  market is disinclined to consider  proposals for the financing of industrial enterprises, there is a revival  of interest in Canadian Mines, for  which it is not difficult to secure  capital. This is due in part to the  excellent records of the Cobalt district and to tbe successful results  obtained at Porcupine. The latter  camp is stated to be on the verge  of a big boom, the Hollinger mine  being the chief cause. In this property the ore already developed  above the 300 foot level amounts to  511,000,000, while operations for  1912, the first year of production,  resulted in a profit of 8000,000.  The   Miner   is   in   receipt    of  authentic   information   from    tho  In a month work will be resumed on tho McAllister group.  On ten  mile G. S.

Drilling for Oil  In the Flathead Valley, at the  junction of Sage creek and the  Flathead river, on the B.C. side of  tho lino a company is now engaged  in drilling a well for oil. A contract has been given to California  oil drillers to sink several holes to  a depth of 2,700 feet, or if necessary 4'000 feet. Heavy machinery  was brought in this winter and the  first well is already down several  hundred feet, and should be a  duster or a gusher within ninety  days. In tin's particular section of  the Flathead the Indians for the  past 100 years havo been in tha  habit of skimming crude oil from  the, seepages on the surface, much  the same as. the red men did at Oil  Springs, Ontario, before tbo white  men drilled the lirst wolls at that  town in 1 SOI. Near whom the  drilling is now lining done in tho  Flathead there is a seepage of oil  that amounts to about live- barrels  a day. It is yellow in color resembling distillate. This point is  on thc Canadian side and can be  reached from Corbin a few miles  from Fernie. A. wagon road forty  miles long leads to it from Bolton,  Montana, The writer has seen  20,000 oil wells, and knows that if  a well is struck in the Fathead  that fiows daily a 1,000 barrels or  moro that it will make the greatest  sensation of tho year in Canada.  It would cause a city of 20,000  people to spring up. in a few  months, and set the country wild  with excitement. Hold your  breath and watch for results.

"Work is medicine and long life  to tho clean minded.  At the meeting of the Greenwood  Farmers' Institute held on Monday  evening in McLaine's. old hall, an  address was delivered by J. R.  Terry. Provincial Poultry Instructor Department of Agriculture. At  the commencement the. speaker  dwelt on the increased benefits to  be derived by poultry keepers  owning nothing but pure bred  stock. They cost no more to feed,  were more uniform in appearance,  thereby engendering pride in their  owners, and were vastly more profitable when eggs for hatching purposes wero sold. The various divisions amongst tlio popular breeds  of today wore then given, tho two  classes, light and heavy, being  enumerated. Tho faults and excellencies of each class was next  explained. For mild climates,  such as the Coast and Islaud districts, the light weight class was  considered to bo tbe most profitable; but where winters of zero  weather aro experienced tho heavy  class Plymouth Rocks, Wyan-  dottes, Rhode Island Reds and  Orpingtons should give the host  results. There wero no best  breeds, it being moro a matter of  strain than breed. When purchasing stock, the laying qualities  and stamina should bo first of all  considered.  Poultry houses of this district  should bo at least twelve feet deep,  and at least six square feet of floor  space should bo given each fowl for  best, results. Plenty of litter  should bo supplied, especially during tho winter months. Exercise  was an important factor. A mixture of good sound grain, plenty of  green food at all times, a sufficiency  of animal food, either beef scraps  or better still skim milk or buttermilk, charcoal, and either clam or  oysters shells was needed for success in egg-production.  Young stock, whenever possible,  should be reared ou freo range, and  care taken to see that overcrowding does not occur. One of the  principal causes of failure when  the business is taken up as a  specialty, is contaminated soil,  caused by overcrowding and accumulation of filth, this bringing  contagious diseases.  About 250 adult birds to the  acre should be the limit, and not  moro than 500 chicks per acre.  With leghorns and other light  varieties, a breeding pen should  consist of from 15 to 25 yearling  hens to one cockerel, and in the  heavy division, 10 to 15 females ,tp  ono male was about right. Beforo  concluding tho lecturer named tho  principal contagious diseases affecting poultry: tuberculosis, "blackhead," (a turkey disease), enter-  ities and ovarian trouble. The  symptons were given and preventive measures explained, Questions wero asked at conclusion, and  answered whore possiblo.
