V\ lioever is   made   responsible'  for the wiring^ of buildings should exercise the powers of his office'and enforce  the ordinances provided as  strictly 'as -  though dealing with gas or dynamite.  One of the requirements is that the insii-"  lation used ou electric, wires should be  tested to withstand any voltage required  of it.   This important matter  is ; often  overlooked until after a fire occurs. -   ','   ,  The K and H cigar has jumped  into prominence through the excellent flavor of the tobacco out of  which it is made.  An Old-Timer.  Billy Murray went east last  July from Grand Forks and located  some mineraFclaiHis in the Porcupine district, Outario. He spent  the winter at his old home in  Petrolia and found that 21 years  absence'makes  nearly everything  look different. It was in-'S3 that  Billy rode his first" horse across the  plains.'   Side by side with   Jack  Coryell   he   fought    through    the  .ebellion of 'So, coming afterwards  11 the present site of Grand Forks,  where,   in  orap ny-with Coryell,  he located  a  ranch in 'S7,   that  they sold to the Djukhobora last  year for $39,000.

The mining of Outario  is, from the standpoint of provincial revenue, extremely profitable, and while tho"collections do  not bear at all heavily on the ,  industry, they explain to a certain  extent the splenilid financial condition of the province.  The Wicked Flea.     *��������� -  Prof. Carl C. Petersson of Dubuque, related at a recent dinner  some examination stories.    .  "Once, in a bible -lesson," he  Baid, "I repeated the text, "Arise,  and take the young child .and his  mother and flee into Egypt.'  "And then I showed the children  a large picture that illustrated the  text in bright colors.'  "The children studied this picture eagerly. Then they all frowned. All looked rather disappointed.���������Finally.a little girl said:  "Teacher, where is tl e flea?"  ���������Washington Evening Star.  Long-Nos3d Englishman.  Some time ago the Late King  Leopold of Belgium, was strolling  in the Pare Monceau in Paris. A.s  he walked along he saw in a bed.  in the center of a lawn, a plant  which interested him. And stepping on to the gr-a'-s he went to examine it. It is forbidden to walk  on .the grass in the Pure Monceau! .  and before many minutes, one of  the park keepers, an old soldier  with a chest full of medals, was in  tbe king of Belgium's wake.    \   "  "Come out of that, you  long-   -  nosed .Englishman," ' he shouted."  Don't you know^hajLyou^axeJaojj,-'  allowed to spoil - the" grass oFthe'"  republic with those great feet of  you rs ?"  Tbe king, who was very niur-h  amused, apologized politely. His  politeness and something familiar  in his face puzzled the park keeper.  "I believe I've seen -you before  somewhere," he said.  "Very likely," said tho king;  "but anyhow, so that you should  know the long-nosed Englishman  uext time you meet him, here is  his portrait."  An he gave the mau a Belgium  five-franc piece.  To Hurt Your Town.  Oppose improvements. Mistrust  public men. Run the town down  to strangers. Go to some other  town to trade. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. Do not  invest a cent; lay out your money  somewhere else. Be particular to  discredit the motives of public  spirited men. Lengthen your face  when a stranger speaks of locating'  iu your town. If a man wants to  buy your property ask him two  prices for it. If he wants anybody's else, butt iu and diseouragc  him. Refuse to see the rni-rit iu  any scheme that does not exactly  benefit you. Run down your  newspaper. Send your printing  to outside towns. Run down your  ollicers. Run down everything  and everybody except Number-  One. Keep up any or all of these  tactics for any length of time and  you will find yourself despised by  all right-thiuking citizens, your  business on the hog. your town on  tho bum and your whole life embittered because you are a knocker.

I'll never forget how I watched,  one whole afternoon, from the  Casino terrace of -Monte Carlo, a  couple of Frenchmen in a boat  shooting seagulls. The blue Mediterranean was dotted with the  beautiful dead-white birds. They  were of course, no u^e to anybody.  '���������'I know a man who joined a  great crowd about a sewer grating  in the Rue St. Honore,- in Paris.  An excited Frenchman was fishing  through the grating. He lowered  a strong hook baited with meat,  and every three or four minutes he  brought up, sque-iling and wriggling, a fat rat. Soon he had ,'30 or  10 fat rats 'lying at his feet. The  crowd was beside itself with the  excitement of this sport.  " -Sploudide !' it shouted at each  fresh catch. 'Superbe!' 'Miigiii-  (iique !'

BATTLIMG WITH ODDS  THAT HAS BEEN THE LIFE WORK  OF T. C. ROBINETTE.  Famous Criminal Pleader Is a Man  Who Dearly Relishes a Fight, and  He Has Managed to Keep Well  Supplied With Them���������Is a Quiet  Man With a Fund of Secrets Locked   Away   In   His   Breast.  All the world loves a fighter. And  when that man almost invariably  has the losing end of thc fight and  las frequently as not wins out the  I world is prone to love him all the  'more.  ��������� The warrior ��������� who is a warrior for  the sheei sporting instinct that is in  him comes in all classes' and conditions of men. lie may be us like  the oidinaiy breed as two peas, but  there is always, one tiling by which  you can distinguish him. He has  a trick of lighting backwards when  the odds are too great and keeping  at it until he comes to the last ditch.  Presently he iccc-guizes that it is the  lust ditch and if the re is nothing else  leit to do he lies down and dies in  it. But a man of that sort can  usually find something else to do  and that is why you so frequently  hear from  him  again.  Canada has a liberal quota of such  men, but iheie is not one of them  who piques tho, iinaeiiuition quite  ao much as T. C. Kobinette. Of  course no one ever calls him T. C.  Kobinette��������� except in a newspaper  item or a legal document. Conversationally he i.s Tom on the same  principle that William Mackenzie is  Jiill, and his distinguished confrere,  Daniel Mann, is Dun. It gives a  fine odor of familiarity.  It was back iu the regime of the  Earl of Abcrdein that Tom Robinette  registered his first indelible mark as  a   criminal   pleader.    A uuin   named  T.  C.   ROBINETTE.  McWherral killed an aged couple  near Bn.rnpton, and out of nowhere  in particular came a young lawyer  named Robinette to defend him. It  wis a long fight, but ultimately McWherral went to the penitentiary and  not to the gallows. Some say that  iLcWherral should have been hanged, but that has nothing to do with  the case. Counsel for the defence  was there to defend ��������� and every reason why McWherral should have  hanged is a testimonial for his lawyer.  From that day the name of Tom  Robinette took its place ulong with  Ayer's Alrn-.n-ic and the Bible as a  family tradition in Canada.  Although this was his first introduction to the country at large the  young criminal pleader had up till  that time been quite a celebrated  person in a smaller circle. He had  arrived at tho University with a  reputation as a political spellbinder,  and whenever an opportunity arose  lie was found on the Liberal stump  "pointing-.with pride," arid "-.-.ailing  another lie." Nor were his pugnacious propensities limited to oratorical invective. There is a well authenticated story of his student days  to the effect that once on a-'midnight  foray he fell foul of the police. Failing to outdo the officer in debate he  was forced to fight for it, and eventually appeared in court charged  with beating up a constable. He  showed conclusively, however, that  the policeman had been completely  in the wro-.g and the charge was  immediately  dropped.  He graduated from the university  in 1884 with a gold and silver medals,  after having been the first president  of tlie Modern Language Club, and  iu-1887. finished his Osgoode Hall  course.  From that time on he throw himself  into criminal law and since the McWherral case he has figured in almost every great sensation in eastern  Canada. There was Healey, who  killed Corrigan in 1899; there wero  Smith and Bn-ome, who killed an  old woman near McMaster University, Toronto; there was Mr3. Kyle,  who- shot and killed an assailant  near Woodstock; and last year Mrs.  Turner and Wulter Blythe, In addition to these there have been  scores of cases just as sensational in  their time involving lesser crimes  than the capitul one, Then there are  the divorce crises.

MOTOR BOATING.  It,  Is   a   Pastime   That   Is   Steadily  Spreading In Canada.  Of tlie many manly sports, particu-  larlv water sports, indulged in by  men of all ages and classes in Canada,  in none has greater interest been  shown than in motor boating, and thi:-  notwithstanding the- fact that it i=>  only within recent years that engines  have been constructed for propelling  all kinds ot craft by motor power.  What we possess to-day in this respect, is the result of many years of  strenuous and . necessarily scientific  studv. The ingenuity displayed by  inventors in improving motor engine.'  has been rewarded by producing a  mechanism undoubtedly one of the  most perfect ever constructed.  The steam engine was justly regarded as a great invention, and was so  perfected as to be applicable to the  propulsion of any kind or size of boat;  but the discovery''Of the use of elec-  tricitv has practically resulted in the  superceding of everything in the way  of steam power in pleasure boating.  The reasons for this are found in the  fact that the use of the electric snark  for generating power saves time, gives  greater speed, is much cleaner and  economises space. Each of these reasons is a' matter of the greatest, importance, especially in the smaller  classes ol boats.  With motor power a yacht can be  started on a minute's notice, and can  develop a tremendous speed by which  a small 35-40 foot launch can oat-distance even such ocean greyhounds as  the Mauritania, the Cunard record-  breaker of the fast service across-the  Atlantic.  The supply of fuel (gasoline) can b?  stored in bunkers well protected, but  which occupy u space practially unnoticed: The saving of space due to  the absence of large boilers and the  necessary fuel, together with the great  convenience ^resulting-from absence of  heat from boilers, is sufficient to give  some idea of the' indubitable advantages of the motor engine over that of  the ordinary steam engine.  As to the use to which smaller craft  of the inexpensive variety can be utilized, there is no country equal to  Canada either for short or long  cruises. The enormous areas covered  by rivers and streams of various sizes,  as well as the inland fresh water  lakes, all of which are navigable and  picturesque, makes this country the  home of pleasure boating. Every province in Canada, from the Atlantic  to the Pacific, contains streams and  lakes which are beine utilized for this  pastime, so that in every-part of the.  broad Dominion this manly sport is  growing in popularity amongst those  who need or seek recreation. Even the  great streams of the Rocky Mountains,  created by the melting snows and  which form lakes and rivers in the  valleys, are being utilized for motor  boating. It is a sport that takes one  out into the open, that is enjoyed in  the fresh air and, while it is not  strenuous, affords some physical exercise and calls for the displuy of considerable skill. And what may be  equally important and beneficial, it  tends to develop an appreciation of  the beauties of nature and of the  charms of our landscapes.���������Canadian  Life and Resources.     .

Wc employ a staff  of about nine hundred people and distribute in salaries, dividends and other  expenses over One Million Dollars annually. We carry a stock distributed  among our* Branches of about Two  Million Dollars, and in addition we own  real estate and buildings' which, are  to-day worth about Five Hundred  Thousand Dollars, and other, large  assets. " -   ;- ^ ':  The Second Guarantee  of NA-DRU-CO quality is the NA-  DRU-CO Trade Mark itself.  We know that the quality of the first.  NA-DRU-CO preparation you buy will  practically decide whether you become  a regular user of NA-DRU-CO articles  or not���������and for that trial you may se- ���������  lect any one of the 125 preparations.  So we must make each NA-DRU-CO  article of the very highest quality or  risk the reputation and sales of the  whole line.  The Third Guarantee  of NA-DRU-CO quality is the fact that  NA-DRU-CO preparations are never,  at any time or in any place, sold at cut  prices.  NA-DRU-CO preparations are so  much better than the preparations  whose prices are cut that discerning people prefer to pay full prices for the NA-  DRU-CO  goods.  The Fourth Guarantee  of NA-DRU-CO quality is short and  very much to the point. If after trying any article bearing the NA-DRU-  CO Trade Mark you are not entirely  satisfied, return it to the druggist from  whom you bought it and he will'hand  back your money.  Consult Your Physician   . *���������  NA-DRU-CO medicinal preparations  are not intended to take the place of your  physician's prescriptions���������far from it.  When you are ill you need the physician's skilful diagnosis and treatment,  and it would be folly to depend on your  own diagnosis and any household  remedy.  But in emergencies when you cannot  get the doctor quickly, and in many  olher cases, a reliable household remedy  is a real blessing.  To put the absolute reliability of NA-  DRU-CO preparations beyond doubt or  question, we are prepared to furnish to  your physician or your druggist, on  request, a list of the ingredients in any  NA-DRU-CO preparation. Ask these  men, who are men ���������( standing in your  community, and in whom you place  implicit confidence, all about NA-DRU-  CO remedies.  If your druggist has not the particular NA-DRU-CO preparation you  ask for in stock, he can get it for you  within two days from our nearest  wholesale branch.

It was the most  unique, independent ond fearless journal ever produced in Canada. Political  and theological enemies pursued it wilh  the venom of a rattlesnake until the  government shut it out of the mails,  and its editor ceasad to publish it,  paitly on account of a'lazy liver and  partly because it takes a pile of money  to run a paper that is outlawed. There  are still 25 different editions of this condemned journal in print. Send 10 cents  and get, one or $2 50 and get the bunch  R. T LOWERY,  Greenwood, B. C.  Tun death of a king or queen  in England usually causes much  disturbance in the financial and  commercial world, and it is better  to be prepared for the coming of  such eveuts. Thc grave condition  of King Edward's health is already  causing much alarm in Loudon,  although the English newspapers  say little about it.  The King, according to private  letters from authoritative quarters  in London, is suffering from what  is known as nrterio-sclerosis, which  is a sort of progressive fibrous degeneration of the irri'i'ii'rt and takes  the form of attacks nf arterial contraction. The blood vessels suddenly reduce their diii.neter, backing up the blood upon the heart,  which is thrown into a desperate  spasm of effort to overcome the obstruction.  Thc patient grows livid, strangles  and fights for breath, and will die  of heart failure if uot relieved by  amyl nitrate and chloral. The.  attacks of contraction are recurrent,  appearing, as the disease progresses,  at- always shorter intervals, while  the amyl nitrate and chloral lose  their ellicacy, until at length an  attack occurs which stops the overstrained heart for good and all.  There is no cure for the malady,  and it is necessary, especially in  the later stages, to have a physician always on hand, -since the  attacks "come without the slightest  warning aud require instant attention.    Make new friends, lest the old  ones die.  The,Same Issue.  A story is going about that a.  farmer went into a store in a  western towu to buy an axe. He  was told it would cost one dollar.  He said he could get it for 05 cents  at a departmental store and wanted  to know if the storekeeper could  could not serve him just the same.  Tho storekeeper said he could  and was paid over the 95 cents,  whon he took up thn money and  laid the axe on a shelf. The farmer  apked for tho axe as he wanted it,  but was fold he could hot have it  for a week, that being the length  of time it would take him to get it,  from a departmental store and he.  wiis promised the same treatment  he would get there.���������Commercial..

Prices for coast real estate are now  at their zenith, and when thesliunp  comes the small investor will have  gained a little* more experience ait  the cost of many hard-earned dollars.

He's a very real dog, a handsome Scotch collie, living in Saskatchewan. Lest he may become  too elated on seeing his adventures  chronicled it is wiser to suppress  his real name and call him Rex.  Rex does not eat the bread of  idleness. A comfortable bed, juicy  boues, and many caresses are well  repaid by this canine who earns his  living���������a gruesome profession, too,  for Rex is an undertaker.  One of the greatest menaces to  the western farmer is the pretty  but naughty gopher, whose depredations upon the grain are very  destructive. Sentiment "for the  tiimenes-i and beauty of the gopher  must necessarily ' be sacriGccd in  order to secure good harvests, and  accordingly traps are set.  It has always beeu the duty of  Rex to despatch the little victims  when caught. One day the collie  was discovered busily engaged  digging a hole. His master watched  him, expecting to see him hide a  bone. He was greatly surprised  to find that the hidden treasure  was to be no other than a dead  gopher. Having deposited the body,  Rex worked perseveringly at the  task of filling the grave. When  completed he surveyed his work  with disgust; the little gopher's  tail was still in sight. He exhumed the body, deepened the  excavation, and reburied Mr. Gopher iu proper style with an imposing mound.  "And from that day to this Rex  attends to all the gopher funerals,"  relat"s his master proudly, with  the air of relief that one has whose  responsibilities aro willingly borne  by another.-���������Edith M.

This is probably why so many people in the  Boundary are constantly buying* real estate and  stocks far from tlie district in which they live.  Why not put some of your speculating money in  ventures within a few miles of your own door, and  benefit yourself and the country an which you  reside and make money ?  .  The Argo Alining and Tunnel Co. of Greenwood  is organized under the laws of British Columbia,  with a capital stouk of $125,000, divieed into  500,000 shares at 25 cents each, non-personal liability. Adjoining Greenwood the company own a  largo number of valuable claims, with high-grade  gold and copper ore showing on the surface. The  company is now engaged in running a 3.000-foot  tunnel to tap all these leads at great depth. Every  indication is favorable to the striking of valuable  deposits of ore, and the time to invest is now,  - Soen as ore is encountered at great depth the price  of stock will ascend rapidly and the chances of  making big money out of a small investment will  not be so good. The time to speculate is when  things are beginning. The success of this big  tunnel means great wealth for the investors and  increased prosperity for the entire district  Investors and visitors to the district are cordially  invited to inspect~the properties ttnd view the work  being done in the tunnel.'
