The pictures were excellent, boing remarkably clear and  distinct. Something quite ont of  the common was the grand spectacular drama A Romance of Hearts  in two parts in which the story and  acting were wonderful.  Olaf Larson, working in a millinery warehouso, backed into an  elevator shaft and fell five stories  with a load of boxes. .Horror-  striken, the employees rushed down  the stairs, only to lind him picking himself unharmed out of the  rubbish.  *' 'Ess de boss mad?" he whispered cautiously, "Tal ,em Ay had to  como down for nails anyway."

Western Float  A GOOD PRODUCTION.  amateur dramatic clujs scorn* nici  SUCCESS.  Greenwood   has    always    been  proud of its amateurs and last Saturday night saw the Auditorium  well'filk'd with an expectant crowd  which was not disappointed.    The  occasion was the annual entertainment given by the Greenwood Amateur Dramatic Club and though  the performances given by this body  in the past have always been more  than meritorious it is safe to say-  that   the   Society   this   year   has  eclipsed all previous records.    The  "piece de resistance" was a  three  act comedy  "All A Mistake"   and  from the rise of the curtain to the  end the audience was kept in roars  of laughter.    F. W. McLaine who  undertook   the  exacting   role   as  Lieut. George Richmond  was perhaps the most notable figure, but he  was well supported by the other  members of the cast.    E. E. Red-  path portrayed Capt. Obadiah Skinner, a. retired sea captain, and took  it well, while C. B. Winter as Ferdinand Lighthead  was perfection  itself and performed this  difficult  role like   an   old stager.    R.   N.  Loring as   Richard   Hamilton,   a  country gentleman, was equally at  home.    Of the ladies, Mrs. H. C.  Cummins scored a great success as  Cornelia   Skinner   and her love-  making and forty-six letters  were  acts of perfection and which won  for her the applause and appreciation bf the audience.

This local  company achieved a great success  and it is generally felt that the success which attended their efforts on  Saturday night was more than well  deserved.

Thoy wero much pleased  with tho attention shown them by  our local member, J. R.   Jackson,  who provided his own car to show  them the pastoral scenery of this  great  district.   The   members   of  tho commission visited the mines  and smelter iu and around Greenwood and were agreeably surprised  at the great industrial  activity in  this district.    Mr. Jackson piloted  them to Rock Creek where informally, they heard the remarks of  Colonel Glossop, S. T. Larson and  D. R. Tait.  Before tho commission in Greenwood, Messrs.

SLIGHTLY PREMATURE  A letter written  by   Randolph  Stuart dated Victoria,  April  23,  1913,    was   recently   received   in  town stating that W.  T. Smith,  (Piobiter) had died in New Westminster, and requesting  his many  friends in tho Boundary to contribute one dollar each in order to  erect some kind of a testimonial or  memorial as a tribute to tho memory   of   the   Boundary's    oldest  pioneer.     Stuart   mentioned that  E. Jacobs was also  sending out  appeals to Smith's old friends.  Quite a number in Greenwood  got their dollars ready,  but evi-  dentally tho appeals are premature  as Smith is not yet dead.    A letter  dated   May   9    was   received   in  Greenwood   this   week   from   tho  medical superintendent of the insane asylum at New Westminster  stating that Smith had suffered a  paralytic stroke and the chanceB  were very slim that he would over  recover his mental  balance,   and  the doctor thought he would nob  livo very long.

Little  by little intelligence is ousting the  devil-doctrine oven from theso fastnesses.  Far be such heresy from ine to  say that there is no Devil. Only  hn is being chased from the world  of life as the pirates have, been  driven from the high sens.

L\- this world of sin, sorrow and  pulTragettcs money comes second to  health. When you get them  chained together life becomes like  an angel's dream.  Thk editor of Cotton's Weekly is  looking for a new home for that  paper. Might move it to an insane asylum, where he could get  cheap literary talent.  It is up to the Federal government at Ottawa, to provide and enforce better health laws in Canada.

Thinking Themes  When organized labor holds the  top hand it is the most unjust,  merciless, destructive, and tyrannical thing on this earth. Up to a  certain point labor unions are a  great benefit to a community. Beyond that point they are a great  curse and a nuisance. The greed  and tyranny of capital caused  unions to spring into life, and the  name thing have now possession of  the unions. Until men become  imbued with better thought, there  will be no peace in the industrial  world.  The government should regulate  all matters pretaining to labor and  wages. Men should be paid according to their worth, ability, and  danger of employment to life and  health. The unions place all men  on a ilead level. This favors the  lazy, incompetent and dishonest  workmen, but it is a detriment to  those who are competent, industrious and honest. Tho government should also regulate matters pertaining to capital, and protect all men against tho greed and  injustice, either of labor or capital.  YRLESS NUSE  (UV  OVH  OWN  LEASED LTAR.)

Onco lord of a good  part of tho earth, and of the greater portion of the realm of thought,  he has been driven from ono field  after another, and now has few  dark corners in which he may  hide.  He onco owned the mountains,  and wild and unruly men iled to  his court there. The gloomy  chasms of the Alps were his. Now  the pleasure seekers throng them,  and poets find divinity among  them.  "The horror of the sacred  woods" was tho radiation of his  malign influence. People feared  forests. That day has gone.  Modern poets write of the woods as  '���������God's temples." We are friends  of the trees, plant them and hold  Chautauquas in them.  The wilds of the ocean belonged  to him, Columbus' sailors thought  surely they were headed direct  into his clutches. Steamships have  driven him from the waters. The  North and South Poles have been  uncovered. America aud Australia aro not inhabited by orges  and monsters, but by ordinary  folks not unlike those iu Europe.  Time was when science was the  devil's own. If a man knew how  to make an explosive, to predict  an eclipse, or to manipulate,  chemicals, he had a devil. If you  were to go back a thousand years  and exhibit to tho peoplo of A.D.  913 tho phonograph, a steam engine, or a trolley car, you would  certainly bo burned as ono who  was in league with Satan.  Leonardo da Vinci narrowly escaped being mobbed because he  mode a barometer, and knew so  much generally.  Men  wero afraid of steam that  burst their   kettles   and   scalded  their fingers.    It was a mysterious  enemy.   Now they  use  it as   a  great friend and servant.     Ever  since Eve first boiled eggs in Paradise steam was on its knees praying  to men that it might be given a  chance to serve them; and they  ran away from it.  ��������� Electricity   has   likewise   been  flashed and roaring in the sky and  thrilling all earth, eager to help ns.  We thought it was tbe Devil  who  wanted to kill us.  Whon the children were bad we  beat them, to drive Satan out of  them.

Peace  and Fraser rivers and the watersheds lying between the St. Lawrence and IfiidHon Ija-y may beie-  garded as the, last homes of the  beaver in America.  The history hi' the beaver in  Europe is instructive, in that it  foreshadows what may occur in  America. Jn the. eleventh and  twelfth centurion, the rights of  hunting were carefully awarded  and were highly valued. By the  sixteenth century we. lind efforts  being made to prevent extermination of many of the. most important  beaver colonies. In 1714 and in  1725, edicts wore, issued insisting  on the protection of those on tlie  Elbe river���������a line equal to about  S200 being imposed for killing.  Small colonics aro still protected  on the Elbe; on the Rhone in  France; and in Sweden and Austria.  The retreat oi the beaver in the  British Isles was .synchronous with  the advance of .settlement. The  last colonies of beaver existed in  Wales and in the Highlands and,  in 152G, British beaver disappeared  from the records of fur sales in  England.  In Asia about 1.000 are annually  taken about the headwaters of the  Obi in Siberia.  Very small numbers-may'still be  found in parts of the.

Mixed Farming.  Spokane, Wash., May 14.���������Reports received by tho Spokane  Chamber of Commerce .indicate a  growing tendency to diversify farming in many part:* of tho Inland  Empire.  Increased attention to tho raising of chickens, cattle and hogs is  reported by Secretary Gordon C.  Corbaloy of the chamber. It is  estimated that for several years 100  carloads of eggs were - imported  annually into Spokane from the  east. Theso shipments continued  until 1912, when the importation  of eggs dropped to 65 carloads, due  to the large increase in tho number  engaged in the industry iu the Inland Empire.  "Similar advance has been made  in dairying," states Mr. Carbaley.  "Many farmers who formerly kept  but one cow now havo from ten to  forty, and are selling the milk and  cream. The steadily increasing  demand for dairy products aud the  quick returns realized by the farmer for this class of products have  convinced many-of our progressive  farmers that they can increase their  profits materially by keeping cows.  One Spokane firm reports the sale  of more cream separators in the  last 00 days than in the preceding  two years.  "A new silo company organized  in Spokane anticipates supplying  thousands of silos to Inland Empire  farmers during the next few years.  Thc large increase in corn acreage  the last two or throe years seems  to justify the expectation of the  men who have invested their money  in this concern. I am told that  the state of Washington has approximately 200 silos, while Nebraska  has 100,000. This seems t6 me to  demonstrate the possibilities for  future development of our agricultural resources in tho Inland Empire."  According to a press report, Mr.  R. D. Prettie, Chief Forester for  tho Canadian Pacific railway Htated  recently, at a banquet in Toronto,  that that Company was spending  as much on forestry this year as is  being spent by tho wholo United  States Forest Service..

Clam Farming  Clurn  farming is said to bo a  good paying industry.   Clam flats  ���������R.  Cary Gilson,   in  an article  which appeared recently in an Old  Country daily,   predicts a menace  for  the  future of tho  British nation, in the fostoring of the unfit.  Mr. Gilson iu an able manner confounds many of believed results of  philanthropy,    pointing   out   that  since  1875  thero has been an extraordinary falling off in tho birthrate of tho more efficient classes,  including professional people and  the best skilled  artisans and mechanics, but with an increase in tho  degenerate and incompetent classes, whom, he says, are in reality  favored by both environment and  legislation, particularly in the Old  Country.   The war which has been  prosecuted on infant mortality and  surgical  aid,  ho asserts,  has enabled defectives to become parents  to an extent hitherto unparalled.  Mr.  Gilson who  is a very  able  writer on social conditions is evi-  dontally familiar with the things  whereof he speaks and he says in  part:   "Even such well intended  acta as tho prohibition   of  child  labor,  compulsory education and  The damage done to commercial  stands of timber in North America  is from 825,000,000 to 8100,000,000  million annually, according to ex-  perls who have made a study of  the question.   From   18S0 to the  present time, the   annual   loss is  estimated to be 800,000,000. These  figures do no include  estimates of  tho losses   sustained    in   the destruction of young growth and forest littei, in whichiies the hope of  future timber crops.    The burning  of the forest litter has tho effect of  making stream flow irregular, eroding river banks and destroying the  fertility of land over which useless  earth is depesited by swollen rivers.  In some years there are forest fires  which assume tbe size of national  disasters.    Such was the Peshtigo  fire which swept over   an area of  1,290,000   acres   in  Wisconsin in  1S71, utterly ruining the country  and bringing death to 1500 people.  Other fires which stand out in  the  history of tho past century as examples of the ruining power of the  forest's great enemy  are,���������Mira-  michi fire, Maine and New Brunswick���������1S25, 3,000,000 acres burned  and 1G0 lives lost.  Pontiac fire,   Quebec���������1832;  1,-  G00,000 acres burned.  . A fire in Michigan  in  1S71���������2,-  000,000 acres burned.  Michigan fire, Michigan���������1881,  1,000,000 acres burned and 138  lives lost.  Phillips fire in Wisconsin���������1894,  1,000,000 acres burned aud 13 lives  lost.  Hinckley fire in Minnesota, 1894  1(30,000 acres burned and 4IS lives  lost.  Fernie fire, B.C. iu 1908; 64,000  acres burned and 9 lives lost.  Great Idaho fire, Idaho and  Montana in 1900; 2,000,000 acres  burned and 85 lives lost.  Baudette fire, Minnesota and  Ontario in 1910; 300,000 acres  buruod and 42 lives lost.  Of recent years there has beon a  remarkable change in the attitude  of the public towards these losses.  Newspapers and magazines discuss  questions of fire protection all the  year through, rather than in periods of danger exclusively. Governments are advancing advanced  legislation, tho number of fire rangers is constantly increasing and  over sixty forest protective associations on the continent are actively  engaged in efforts to reduce the fire  loss.  With half the timber wealth of  Canada within her borders and an  annual revenue from the forest  which can attain a total of at least  8100,000,000, British Columbia's  interest in the protection of forests  from fire is almost beyond estimate.  The forest branch is taking active  measures to place the whole Province under efficient protection to  the end that no such losses as have  occurred in tho past in other parts  ,.f Hm nnimfru nm������ tfttonkpn lmpi)  I quickly Btoi'iTcnuBhri.  cures colds,   and  lieuls  of tlio country may uvKepiaco noie,  llm 1)ircut UI|J Iurl({lli     ..     ..     ao centa.

It was the most  unique, independent and fearless journal ever produced in Canada. Political  and theological enemies pursued it with  the venom of ,1 rattlesnake until tho  government shut it out of the mails,  and its editor ceasad to publish it,  pa/tly on account of a lazy liver and  partly because it takes a pile of money  to run a paper that is outlawed. 1hon>  aru still 20 different editions of this con-  demned journal in print.

There was a samll stampede up  O'Donnell creek last fall, caused  by a prospector finding $500 in  coarse gold in about three days.  Ho brought it here and the gold  commission took charge of it and  the property has been in litigation  ever since. They say ho staked  over another man's claim, etc.  Just now O'Donnell creek ia staked  up a long way.  Old timers'around here don't believe in any extensive find, but  think that it is a good country to  prospect. They are indignant at  tho false reports that have gone  outside, causing a strinpedo which  has only begun, because there will  undoubtedly ho a lot of people  conic in hero shortly. Quite a  number of claims have been turned  over in the Silver creek country  during the last month or so, regardless of any showing at all.

Smith of Hazelton:  ���������'Now regarding the strike: In  the first place, it has been greatly  over rated, which is. of course, not  to be wondered at, as they all are  to a certain extent.  An Indian came out of the Silver  Creek country last fall with forty  dollars iu coarse gold, which every  man saw; this is every dollar that  has como out of there so far���������all  that dope about Owen going to  Skagway for supplies with SI,500  in coarse gold was bunk. This  Indian put Jim Mason (Skookum  Jim) next to his find, and MaBon  went- to Seattle after Carmack.  They returned, and a bunch of  their friends from Dawson and  Seattle got wise in some way and  started to follow them in. Mason  and Carrnack got away from thein,  and neither of them has been seen  since. Mason pawned his ring in  a road house up tho lake a short  time ago for a meal and a bunk. I  was talking to the man who has it  and he was showing mo the ring.  That Indian with liis forty dollars, started the stampede; likewise  all the reports of an El Dorado.  At this stage of tlio game, Silver  creek is staked from one ond to the  other; also Johnson, Trout, Judson  local man.    About 200  are   prospecting around Silver crook. There  is a small settlement   of tents at  Silver creek, but no stores, restaurants, or anything liko that, and at  present there is no recorder, consequently you have to  take a  150  mile trip back hero to record;  also  he camp has  tho usual  quota of  toughs, but most of them   are like  a wolf���������harmless on a full stomach.  Intend to stake on some of the  smaller streams around Silver creek  the   showing thero should  bo as  good as any.    Then I  will  return  here to record, then try and get in  a trip to O'Donnell and  do some  staking there.    If I do not sell,  I  will afterwards go out to the claims  and do some prospecting and panning, and see how they look on the  surface.    If they   don't look good  I will have to go south and  get to  work, having gained  in experience  if not in wealth.    Fad my  clothes  off for the first time in over a week  and woke up the other morning on  tho trail with  six  inches  of snow  on the blankets.     However  it is  all in the game ajul was  expected.  Travelling was bad  down  Tagish  lake, and I was led   to   believe it  was glare ice, hence the leaving of  part of my load.   Then there  was  a Gfteen mile portage to make between   Tagish   and    Atlin   lakes,  which was soft going;  Atlin  lake  was not bad   but   pretty  cold.    I  shot a few rabbits for tho dogs,  which  they devoured  with great  gusto; also saw cariboo and moose  tracks, but nothing more tangible.  The passenger rate on the W. P.  & Y. is 20c per mile; freight fie per  pound.    There is   no   opening  in  this  country at   present   for  any  kind of business.   Might   be later  on,   about July.   Stages  run  between Cariboo Crossing  and   hero  in the winter,   and   boats   in   the  summer.    The   freight  rate  from  Atlin to Cariboo  (W.P. & Y.)   is  about ?5c a  lb.    Don't know what  tho passenger rato is���������I   mushed.  It is a 00 mile trip and  there  two  road houses; meals 81; bunk 81 per  night.  I would advise no ono to come  up here until they see how the camp  is going to pah out. T wouldn't  even advise a prospector to come,  as tho country is full of prospectors  now.  The recent, strike in the Slocan  Star at, Sandon, in the upraise, has  not yet been proved through the  ledge, but so far as gone there is  six feet of ore, running from l'.IS  to215onnc.es in silver. The ore  was encountered in the upraise,  .'550 feet above the deep level tunnel and about 00 feet from the surface. The upraise was not yet  through the ore body at noon yesterday.  This is tho most important strike  made in late years in the Slocan,  and proves tho continuance of the  large oro body found, on the surface.���������Slocan "Record.

Strong, vigorous men and women  hardly ever catch cold; It's only when  tho system Is run down and vitality  low that colds and coughs get a foothold.  Now isn't It reasonable that the  right way to cure a cough Is to build  up your strength again?  Mrs. Olivia Parham, of East Durham, N. C, says: "I took Vinol for a  chronic cough which had lasted two  years, and the cough not only disappeared, but It built up my strength  as well."  Tlio reason Vino! Is so efficacious In  such cases is because it contains in a  delicious concentrated form all tho  medicinal curative oloments of cod  liver oil, with tonic, blood-bulldlng  Iron added.  Chronic coughs and colds yield to  Vinol because it builds up tho weak-  1 oned, run-down system.  You can get your money back any  time if Vinol does not do all we say.  J. h.
