Copper Co., has taken  a two years'bond on the McKinley  and Hannah claims, ih the Franklin  camp for 5100,000. The papers  were signed in Grand Forks last Friday. Work will begin just as soon as  Mr. Keffer can examine the (-round,  and make the plans. The first work  to be done will be open cuts, and  diamond drilling. The beginning of  work upon the McKinley means a  great ,deal for Franklin and Grand  Forks. James Brecn is the principal  owner of the McKinley and talking  about it he says:  ''He says the mine is on thc north  fork of Kettle river, 34 miles from  Grand Forks, B. C, and about 18  miles from the present terminus of the  north fork branch of the Kettle River  Valley railroad. I saw it only once,  five years age, and was very favorably  impressed with it. P. A. O'Farrell  was its promoter, and he spent about  ������30,000 of F. Augustus Heinze's  money in developing it, the work been  mostly done with diamond drills.  Owing to its remoteness from transportation at that time, and the fact  that Mr. Hinze had disposed of practically all his interest in British Columbia, he threw up the proposition.  Mr. O'Farrell then appealed to me  for assistance and I put up some  money to help him out.' I kept getting in a little bit deeper, until I finally owned three-quarters of the stock  of the company. Not having time  to give the property my personal attention 1 was glad to have the Britisn  Columbia Copper company take hold  of it. They are going to develop it  by means of a long tunnel and I believe it will prove to be a big mine."  s Western Float  The Girl Guides are organizing-  in Trail. - & S  many people are  open a  lUlifisjinu  55C5  A Shipment of Ostermoors and  Florida Felts just opened up.

He had visited every country on the  globe,   and   I   verily   believe   that   If  avhition lind come up iu his dny ho  would   hnve   sailed   up   beyond   the  clouds to find others.    Wheu 1  made  his acquaintance he hnd settled down  In n place lie culled by a jawbreaklug  name   signifying   "dwelling"   that   he  hnd   picked   up  among   the   Eskimos  or some  other  benighted  people.     It  was In the country situated on the top  of n hill and looked more like n Chinese pagoda than*any other structure.  Spitzburger   was   a   widower,   with  one child, a daughter.   She was twenty years old and for half her life had  traveled during half of each year���������(he  summer season���������with her father.    Heredity  and   travel   had  made  her   as  odd as  he.    Rather she  was unique  She was of medium height, lithe, wiry  ���������indeed,   a   feminine  uthloto  of   the  featherweight type.' Her hair was black  and straight as an  Indian's; her eyes  large  black ones, with lashes of the  Spanish type.   I wondered if her mother had not beeu some dusky semiclvl-  lized creature her father had picked up  on the underside of the world.    But  he told me his wife had been an American creole.  The inside of the bouse In which  these two lived was aa curious as the  outside. The furniture and ornamental articles had apparently been gathered from all points of the globe, ranging from the south sea islands to  Greenland. There was a mill for  grinding from the Eloly Land similar  to those used in Bible times, a wheel  from India to spin (lax ou, and the  bathtub had been the sarcophagus of  an Egyptian mummy.  The reasou for my muting the Spitz-  burgers' acquaintance wns this: I was  taking n postgraduate course at tbe  time, studying the customs of different races of men, the causes and effects which shape them and their relationship. Desiring some information as to the people of Tibet, a laud  forbidden to foreigners and therefore  little known, 1 was recommended to  Spitzburger ns one who had penetrated to the Interior of that country. I  went to see him, and my visit led to  my studying wilh him.  How  long I  remained there doesn't  matter,  but it   was sufficient  for  my  embroilment  by  that  "little savage,"  as I called his daughter, Irene.    Not  that there  was any  outward  intimation on my part that I was coming under a spell, aud. as for the girl, I had  no idea that 1  was any more to her  than  anotter  man.    Indeed,   I  sometimes fancied that she might have left  her heart In New Zealand, Kamchatka  or some other barbarous land.   Whether Spitzburger suspected the drift ot  my inclinations I ciou't know, but ooe  day he took occasion to mention with  approbation  the marriage customs in  Lapland,   where  oue   who  marries   a  girl   without  her  parents'  couseut is  Mjudged guilty of a crime next below  murder and  is  punished accordingly.  1 thought that he looked at me very  hard,  but  "a guilty conscience needs  no accuser," and I may-have attached  more meaning to his words than they  covered.  The only thing to Indicate that Irene  and I were drifting together ns lovers  was that we took long walks together.  I made an excuse for this that in her  company I could both exercise and  study. This was true. I could get  from her certain information of the  domestic habits of the people she had  Tlsitcd that I could not get from her  father. One day while we wero on  one of these walks 1 said to her:  "Your father tells me that in Lapland to marry n girl without her parents* consent is punished as a crime.  Please tell me how a man In that country does his courting."  "He doesn't do any courting."  "Then bow does be proceed?"  "He goes to her parents and asks |  for her.    If he is refused there Is no  hope for him.   If they approve of his  suit they toll the girl of it.   She may  or may not have seen the lover, but  the process is the same In either case.  -Her  parents  give  a  feast  at   which  they, the girl, her suitor and mutual  friends are present.   The two principals are placed opposite each other at  table,   where  they   can   observe  and  talk with each other all they like."  "Well, then what? I suppose the  girl has something to say in the matter, else thin looking over her suitor  would be useless."  "Yes, she has a good deal to say  about it, but she doesn't yet make it  known. She Indicates her decision  Inter. After the feast all go to an open  space suitable for running n race. A  course Is marked off-a quarter of a  mile usually���������and the girl Is given a  handicap of a third of the distance.  The handicap Is intruded to enable her  to win the race easily if she wishes,  and if she wins that indicates her refusal of the c-flVr Mut if, on tlie contrary, she purposely lugs and her suitor  ciirchPH her. that indliiifns slip accepts  Cured by Lydia E.

Surely she  could not have put forth greater effort I saw her glance aside to see  where I was, and she dashed on, seemingly bound to reach the goal before  me. But when within ten yards of it,  my distance being twenty, she tripped*  and fell. 1 run on to the tree, touched  It and then back to her. Raising her,  I said impatiently:  "I suppose we must try this one  over."  "No," she said; "1 couldn't run  again."

She looked at the ground, but made  no reply, and 1 knew she had tripped  on purpose.  When we returned to the house Spitz-  burger looked at us both curiously. I  knew at once that he was aware that  his da ugh tor had given me my answer  and that she had given it In accordance  with tlie Lapland custom. He first  scanned her face, but receiving no satisfaction there bent his gaze upon  mine.  Ho did not require 11 long examination of my features to know that I had  beon made very happy,.and the cause  was evident.

Fattening steers will  use to great advantage from two to  throe pounds of oilmeal daily in connection with other feeds. Feediug oilmeal in the form of nut sized cakes is  considered preferable to the loose meal  by most of our steer feeders. Dairy  cows will consume one or two pounds  of oilmeal daily with their grain rations, and during the winter feeding  period more or less oilmeal is almost  indispensable in order to keep the  cows in tlie best condition for producing milk and butter fat. For growing,  calves, sheep and hogs oilmeal can  constitute about one-tenth of the grain  ration fed and prove very beneficial,  florses may be fed small quantities,  although its general use for .horses  is not recouimended.-l'rofessor Humphreys iu Wisconsin Bulletin.  aulokly steps ooughs, onres colds, faeala  the   throat and  lungs.  .   -   .   25 coats.

Ou the  morning of  the  third,  determined  to  have  the   matter  out   with   Irene,   I  asked her to go for a walk with me,  the last we would take together before  my departure.   She usseuted and went  up to her room  for her wraps.    She  was some time getting them, and wheu  she came down what was my surprise  to see  that she  had  put on  a skirt  reaching but little below the knees, and  instead of a hat she had  wrapped a  veil about her head.  I dldu't dream for awhile what this  meant, but when she led me along a  path and across a stile to a space used  in season for pasture I suspected at  once that she proposed to satisfy a  whim by giving me an answer to my  proposal after the Lapland custom. I  was too hungry for it to object to tbe  terms and was quite ready to run for  my answer. Indeed, so impatient was  I that I opened the subject myself.'  "A  good place for a  race,"  I remarked.

"We're not blaniin'  you.   You done tlio best you could."  TO THE SHAREHOLDERS:  Your Directors beg to present.herewith the annual statement of the affairs and financial position  of the Canada Cement Company, Limited, as of the 31st December, 1910.  In presenting thc Balance Sheet, we call attention'to the Company's strong financial position  as disclosed by the large amount of cash on hand, and other quick assets, and the comparatively  small amount of current liabilities. After providing for interest on our Bonds and Dividends on our  Preferred Stock for the year, we have been able to set up reserves for depreciation, extraordinary repairs and renewals, bad debts, etc., and carry forward a substantial balance to Surplus Account.  The consumption of cement during the past year was not as large as anticipated. Our business  also suffered on account of thc Railways not being able to meet our full requirements for cars during  the; heavy  shipping  season;  consequently,  we  carry over from last year 781,116 ban-els of cement.  Early in 1910 the price of our product was fixed  at a lower price than  cement had ever been  sold for in Canada, excepting for a short period in 1909, but your Directors    are   pleased   to   state'  that  the  anticipated  savings  in  manufacturing  and distributing our products were such that they were  able to still further reduce this price.  We trust, when you consider the above mentioned conditions, and also the fact that during 1910  our plants were only operated to 57.0 per cent, of their capacity, the profits shown will be satisfactory  to the Shareholders.  During the current year we look for a larger natural demand, which demand will be stimulated by continuing to manufacture a strictly high grade article, and by selling it at the lowest possible price. This anticipated increase will enable us to operate our plants to better advantage than in  the past, but wc do not expect that the demand will be sufficient to enable us to put into operation ���������  either of the two plants which have been idle since thc organization of this Company. However, it is  confidently expected that the increased demand, and increased output, will result in further savings  in the cost of manufacture and distribution, and it is the policy of your Directors to give your customers the benefit of these reductions.  The Shareholders' profits will depend on the increased volume of the Company's business, the  policy of the Company being the maintenance of such a stable position as will insure regular and  uniform payments of interest on its bonds and dividends on its Preferred Stock, and at the same time  be in a position lo withstand any unforeseen emergency that may arise consequent on business depression or otherwise, which condition naturally necessitates the accumulation of, and the maintenance  of, a large cash reserve.  It is also the policy of the Company to equalize the price of cement throughout Canada in so  far as the physical conditions make such possible, and in furtherance of this policy, your Directors  have arranged to purchase a site near Winnipeg, on which they will erect, this year, a mill to grind"  clinker, which clinker will be shipped from one of our Eastern mills. The buildings, machinery, etc.,  will be planned so that, should it at any time in the future be advisable, a Burning Department can  be added, and thc clinker produced on the property.  And further, an agreement has been entered into whereby this Company expects to acquire, in  the near future, a property at Exshaw, which, added to our Calgary plant, and the projected plant at  Winnipeg, will put us in the position of anticipating any extraordinary growth in the consumption of  cement in the Great West.  With a view of educating the public, and popularizing the use of cement, in addition to the ordinary advertising, the Company has published a small book illustrating some of the many uses to  which cement may be put, for which book there has been a great demand, 25,000 applications for same  having been received during the past six months.  For thc purpose of stimulating interest in the Company on behalf of the Employes, both in  efficiency and cheapening production, as well as creating a feeling of mutual goodwill, your Directors  deem it expedient to introduce a system, already adopted by several large industrial corporations with  beneficial results, viz., to enable employes to become the possessors of Preferred and Common Stock  at prices which will be attractive to them, the employes paying a fixed amount per share per month  out of their earnings, and the Company carrying the stock for them, charging a rate of 5 p.c. interest. If the plan is put into effect, all dividends will be credited to the employees applying for the  stock. Said stock will be held in trust for the employe for a term of five year3, excepting in exceptional cases, such as death, when his heirs will receive what benefit a deceased employe has derived  from subscribing to the stock.  Your Directors feel that the policy, as herein outlined, will, as nearly as possible, make the' interests of the consumers, the employes, and thc shareholders identical, and will imn*e to the most enduring and beneficial' results for all concerned.  e  Pay  Particular Attention  to Exclusive Listings  i  ~rrrri tmnTihi minim iT" ;-<"-;  JTHE   LEDGE.

Throwing it  from them, it fell in a" little pool of  water. 1 addressed the sponge in Bug  hsh and with any. words that camo  into my head, pretending to utter incantations.  "The attention of the Lamas and  soldiers was quickly drawn to this unusual behavior on my part.

She had seen  him stoop and kiss her. Then she  .separated herself from the cheering  "crowd. She strayed tc a spot in the  prairie where she knew they were. She  gathered them herself, a little ill-  assorted bunch of wild weed blossoms  Then she edged her way back through  the throng. She had almost reached  him as he moved away when a bndged  committeeman stopped her. He took  her by'the' sleeve of her patched print  "dress and thrust her back.

"Were you   good   enough   to  mean  those for me,  little girl?"- he asked  with a smile.     She thrust.them  to  wards him, new half-frightened.  He bowed, and took them. Ho kissed her. Then he drew a sprig from  the bunch and fastened it in thc lapel  of his coat. And when the Great Man  mounted his car nnd waved his hat to  the cheering hundreds there was cno  happy little girl who feasted her eyes  on a faded wild weed blossom still  drooping on his breast.

Great Literature That Has Been Prepared Just For the Little Ones.  Robert Southey, onco Poet Laureate,  wrote ..many long, dull poems which  he imagined were immortal masterpieces, but which arc to-day as dead  as the dodo. Had he not written one  or two short poems to please his  children, scarcely a line ot his poetry  would now be read But, as luck  would have it, he took his boys and  girls one day to see the Falls of Lo-  dore, near Keswick, and when they  returned they asked liim to write a  poem telling noiv tne watei came  'down He aid it, and it has proved  the most enduring and the most distinctive thing ne wiote Another of  his poems, deservedly lemcnibereJ  and quoted, is "The flattie of Blenheim, oegiiuniig v..tn tne well-know 11  lines, "it was a summer evening���������  Old Casper's woik was done" Tins  also was written for ins children, as  was al������o "i'ne inciicape Bell "  Though "1'ilgi mi's j-rogrcss," as regards its first oait, was wiitten primarily as tui occupation to relieve the  monotony of liuuiurd Jail, wheie  John Butiyau was lodged oii-account  of his JNoiicO.iforniity, ,yot it may be  truly said that thc s.cond pait���������evei  the cluldien's favorite on account oi  the boys and gnls it talk about, and  especially on amount ot Ureatneart���������  ���������was written because Bunyan's chil  dren deuid.idod it He used to read  Christian's joui..ey to his wife and  children when t:.<.y visited him ii  prison���������for 111& iinline was not over  strict���������and tnoy were quite disconso  late at the thought of Christiana and  thc chilurcn bun*: left be-ind in-thu  City of De&liuction, and ..gave then  lather no le&t until he had promisci  to take them on pilgrimage also.

WOMEN'SWIMFVIERS.  ��������� ', ���������   Some Rare  Feats of  Experts   at   the  Natatorial Art.  "And when are vou going to swim  the Channel again?" a society lady  asked Captain Webb, shortly after  his historic feat "Never, wnadam,"  answered the hero of the hour, with  a bow, "it is the laches' turn now."  And. "a generation later, it really  seems that,,if'evei the gallant Webb  is to have a rival, it will have to  be a woman; for since his day a  dozen men have wrestled with the  Channel and have always come off  "second best."  ' Thirty years ago there was one woman���������or lather a girl���������who might  conceivably'have swum the Channel I  under favorable conditions Once she '  swam twenty miles in the Thames  in 6 hours 25 minutes; and, again,  she covered ten miles in the excellent  time of 2^hours 43 minutes; but Miss  Agnes Beckwith had no ambition to  try conclusions with such a formidable opponent as the English Channel."  Other doughty Naiads there were,  too, of that day���������Miss Emily Parker,  who swam nine miles 111 the Thames  in 2 hours 24 1-2 minutes (a feat of  which any man might have been  proud); and Miss Dick and Miss Lizzie Gillespie, who thought nothing of  swimming half-a-dozen miles or more  in a choppy sea. But in their wildest  flights of ambition not one of these  lady-swimmers of the 'seventies  dreamed of emulating Captain Webb.  Their succossois of to-day, however, arc no longer ufrml to challenge man's supiemacy even in a  sport which requires more strength  of muscle and power of endurance  than any other How* splendidly  they are succeeding wns proved a  short time ago in a swimming lace  fiom Brooklyn to Coney Island, a  distance of thu teen miles In this  race, fer which thirty of America's  strongrst male swimmers entered,  the second and thud places were  taken by two girls, of seventeen and  eighteen respectively, one of whom  was within a few yaids of snatching  victory from the winner. As it was,  they were able to "show the wny"  to twenty-nine of their masculine  rivals!  It is not long since Miss Lilv  Smith, the eighteen-year-old captain  of the , Tottenham (Eng ) Ladies'  Swimming Club, attempted to beat  Captain Webb's record of eight hours  for the twenty-mile swim between  Dover >jnd Ramsgate    -  Alth-nigluMiss Smith, owing to the  rough sea, was" obliged to turn buck  when within two miles of Ramsgate,  she completed her twenty miles in  the remarkable time of seven hours  Miss 'Littlewood, a hospital nurse,  perfoimed a wonderful feat some little time ago, by swimming from Sun-  bury to Kew, Eng., a distance of sixteen miles, in eleven hours. Mi's  Claire Parlett, a Kingston, Eng.  young lady,' has covered thn teen  miles in eight hours and a half, and  many other ladies���������almost all quite  young girls���������have peiformed wonderful  aquatic feats.  But all these performances, highly  creditable as they are, pale (into insignificance befoie those of Mme Ica-  ceseu, who. thinks *no moie of a  thirty-mile* swim than most men of  a mile Some yeais ago this doughty  lady actually swam foity-eight mile-*  in the Danube, and was so fresh at  the end of her long journey that she  could "asily, so it was said, have  added twenty miles to her record  As it was," the distance covered was  more than equal to a direct double  trip across the  Channel  So far only one lady has made a  really -erious attempt to swim across  the Channel, and that is Miss Annette  Kellerman. an Australian, who is  considered���������and, no doubt, rightly���������  the champion lady-swimmer" of the  world Five yeats ago Miss Keller-  man battled with the Channel for  six hours, during -which time she  covered a dozen miles, only to be  compelled by sea-sickness to abandon  the effort.

Figures recently compiled by  J. Bryan Williams, provincial  game warden, shows that in the  fiscal year ending March 30, 1910,  3379 head of predatory animals  and birds were destroyed under  provincial game bounties. For  the past fiscal year the-figures  have not yet being compiled, as  they take some time to gather,  but the figures for the proceeding  year will make interesting reading.    ���������  Williams says it is exceeding  hard to estimate the nmmber of  game birds and animals, to say  nothing of domestic and farm  stock, saved by the destruction of  these pests.  Roughly speaking the destruction of 655 wolves would mean a  saving of 13,100 head of game,  and possibly three or four times  as many.  "It is hard to estimate. how  much game one cougar kills in a  year," said the warden. "They  seldom eat the whole of a deer  killed, often taking nothing but  the blood. Woodsmen claim that  one cougar will average three  deer a week, but put it only at  two head of game in one month  and the cougars destroyed would  mean a saving of 9024 head of  game during the year.  "Coyotes kill small game rather  than big. Still in the breeding  season they pick up a good many  fawns and also a number of frail  game animals during the hard  winters. Supposing they only  average three head of game in a  year, this would mean a saving  of 4,362. Thus from the destruction of wolves, cougars and  coyotes we have at least a saving  of 26,486 head of game in a year.  The pests destroyed under  bounty in 1909-10 are given by  Mr. Williams as follows:  Wolves, 655; coyotes, 1,454;'  cougars, 381; big horned owl; 855;  golden eagles, 34.  Greatest  number of wolves in  one district: 243 in Skeena, 189 in  A-tlin, 150 on Vancouver Island.  Cougars killed  on Vancouver  island 154.   ���������  Greatest number of coyotes:  349 in Cariboo, 247 in Liilooet.  Greatest number of big horned  owls 222 in Yale, 165 in Okanagan.        from cellulose.   One process'.employs   nitro-cellulose ..which   is  really nothing more' than soluble  gun'cotton.

Toronto:  The skulls and larger  bones of at least 20 bodies were  uncovered at Weston by working  men breaking ground for the new  Presbyterian church. The ghastly  remains are   believed   to be   at  least 100 years old, "and possibly  these remains may have lain there  for double   that (period.   While  Rev. Mr. McGillivrary, the minis-,  ter of the church, explained that  these skulls were apparently those  of Indians, further inquiries will  be made along that line.   The  spot where the men were digging  lay near the Plumber river, at a  point that naturally   has   been  attractive to the Indians' conception of a burial place.  It was with a cry of surprise  not unmixed with fright that a  man's pick struck one of the gruesome objects. He summoned his  comrades*, and together the work  was continued at the point until  about two dozen skulls and a huge  pile of bones were found. The  collection was removed to one  side of the excavation, and it is  expected that in opening up other  points of the church site similar  discoveries will be made. The  bones lay not more than two feet  below the surface of the sod.

The 'iNe Te.mere decree declares void marriages contracted  between Protestants and Catholics  without the consent of the church  and before other than Catholic  priests.

That various citizens throughout the country may be the unsuspecting wearers of gun cotton  neckties and explosive socks liable  to blow up at any moment is the  startling possibility just brought  to light,   Nor is  the  feminine  sex immune from the danger since  petticoats may likewise be articles  of destruction.   This condition of  affairs    has     been    discovered  through   a protest recently filed  against the manufacture of artificial silk from cellulose, in which  it appears that there is a possibility that almost any article of  wearing apparel made to imitate  real silk mav actually be explosive.

At her grandfather's house in Milton, Nova Scotia, Miss Saunders was born  in 1801, the daughter of a clergyman, and a descendant of the John'Aldcn immortalized in verse by Longfellow. Her early days were spent in the beautiful  land of Evangeline where the very air seems redolent of romance and historio memories. When she was six the family moved to Halifax, and there she received the  foundation of her education in private and public schools until fifteen, when sho  was sent to a boarding school in Scotland ana thenco to France to put some finishing touches to her education.  On her return to Nova Scotia sho taught school for a time and then drifted  inio literature. Her first short story brought forty dollars, but she soon realized  that real success could not be plucked like a rose in a garden; she must pay the price  in years of observation, study, training and practice. She spent several .years in  foreign travel, as a post-graduato course in experience, and then returned to Nova  Scotia, ready for the serious work of her life.  In 1894 the American Humano Educational'Society offered a prize of $200  for the best story illustrating kindness to dumb animals. Miss Saunders determined  to compete for it    ol *��������� ~:- =������������������*-������������������������������������-- !- ���������:,!   to compete for it.   She spent six months in writing a story, the background, of  which wns largely autobiographic and tlio spirit pervading it her own intense love  for animals, the silent appeal of their helplessness finding ever a sympathetic echo  in her heart.

' It is an admirable story  and should have nn immense sale and become a standard for nil libraries," and  yet, this sweet, sympathetic study of dog life, despite its splendid ciidortiemrnt,  went begning among the publishers for six. months before it was,,accepted, Miss  Saunders having availed herself of'the privilege of forfeiting'tho prize money and  retaining her rnanuscriDt.  When published, it gave her a place in the very front rank of writers of animal  stories. Her "Tilda Jane," a simnle, natural, pathetic'yet humorous story, adds  a new character to the charming literature of childhood. Tn hor ambitious novel  " Hose it Charlittc," she gives a delightful portrayal of the life of the Aeadiniis in  the historic country around St. Mary's Bay. a realm of idyllic romance, where  trials and sorrows seemed to sanctify and purify the people to higher ���������things.

The loyal subjects of His Majesty  in every part of the British Empire,  bearing the Christian name of George,  are invited to unite in making a gift  to His Majesty on the occasion of his  coronation, the most auspicious event  of his life.  The contribution may be as small  as a penny, but in no ease may it exceed five dollars.  A list of the names of nil donors,  but not the. amount given by each,  will- bo sent to thc King, who will decide what form the present is to take.  From the interest already aroused it  is anticipated that there will be a lib-  oral response, and that a sufficient  sum will be raised to pay for a handsome personal ornament and still  leave a large sum to be devoted to  charity.  His Excellency, Earl Grey, is taking the interest in this fitting tribute,  and at his request, His Honor, Sir  Daniel H. McMillan, is initiating the  movement in Manitoba, and* consents  to allow all sums contributed in this  province to be sent to him at Government House.  The mayors and reeves of cities,  towns and villages, the public school  teachers, and the members of Canadian Clubs and other patriotic societies are cordially invited to co-operate  in bringing this most loyal project  to a successful conclusion.  The last day for receiving contributions is April 23rd, and if this province is to make a creditable showing  no time is to be lost.  There is no set method of work.  Each city, town, school or patriotic  society may work as it thinks best.  All letters containing contributions  are to be addressed to  SIR DANIEL H. McMILLAN,  Government House,  Winnipeg.  Envelopes also to be marked C. G.,  K. G.  Any further information   may    be  had on writing to E. H. Smith, Hon.  Secretary C. G. K. G., Winnipeg.  Winnipeg, March 15, 1911.  Prompt Action Followed  A member of the peace committee  saw two youths fighting. He pushed  through the crowd and appealed to  the combatants to desist. "My good  young fellows, settle your disputes by  arbitration. Each of you choose half  n dozen friends to arbitrate."  "Hurrah!" yelled the crowd. "Do  as the gentleman says."  Having seen the twelve arbitrators  selected to the satisfaction of both  sides, the man of peace went on his  way rejoicing.  Half an hour later he returned that  way and found the whole street in  an uproar.  "Good gracious! What is the matter now?" asked the peacemaker.  "Shure, sor," said a bystander,  "the arbitrators are at work."  He is truly a foolish man who will  praise another woman's baby to a woman who has one of her own.  USING PURGATIVES  INJURES HEALTH  What You Need in Spring is  a Blood Building  Tonic  A- spring medicine is an actual ne--  cessity to most people. Nature demands it as an aid in carrying off  the impurities that have accumulated  in the blood during long winter  months of indoor life. Unfortunately  thousands of people who recognize  the necessity for a spring medicine  do not know what is best to take  and dose themselves with harsh, griping purgatives.  This is a serious mistake. Ask  any doctor and he will tell you that  the use of purgative medicines weakens the system, but does not cure  disease. In the spring the system  needs building up���������purgatives cannot  do this���������they weaken you still more.  The blood should be made rich, red,  pure, and only a tonic medicine can  do this. The best blood building,  nerve restoring tonic medical science  has yet discovered is Dr.. Williams'  Pink Pills. Every, dose of this medicine actually makes new, rich blood.  This new blood strengthens every organ, every nerve and every part of  the body. This is why Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills cure headaches and backaches, rheumatism and neuralgia,  banish pimples and eruptions, and  give a glow of health to pale and  sallow cheeks. Men, women and  growing boys and girls who take Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills eat well, sleep  well,   and   feel   bright,  - active     and  A Close Shave  "One of these men, a Calabrian  named Morta, went to his partner's  shop and tried to shoot him while he  was engaged in shaving a customer.

Face Sores and Eruptions  Zam-Buk  Will  Quickly  Heal.  The approach of Spring finds many  people with unsightly fuce sores,  eruptions, boils, etc. In this connection Zam-Buk is invaluable. An  illustration of the way ia which it  cures even the most serious and  chronic cases ef eruptions, sores and  ulcers, is provided by Mr. R. H. Barker, of Glencairn, Ont.   He says:  "I never could have believed that  any remedy could cure so quickly and  at the same time so effectively as  Zam-Buk cured me. My face began  to be covered with a kind of rash,  which itched and irritated. This rash  then turned to sores, which discharged freely and began to spread.  I first tried one thing and then  another, but nothing seemed to do  me much good, and the eruption got  worse and worse until my face was  just covered with running sores.  . "Apart from the pain (which was  very bad), my face was such a terrible sight that I was not fit to go out.  This was my state when someone advised -me to try Zam-Buk. I got a  supply and within a week I could  see that the sores were rapidly healing. A little longer, and Zam-Buk  had healed them completely, and my  skin was as clear as if I had never  had a sore. We shall never again be  without Zam-Buk in the house."  Zam-Buk is unequalled for Spring  rashes, eruptions, children's sores,  scalp diseases, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses, eczema, tetter, piles, cuts,  burns, bruises, and skin injuries and  diseases generally.

That Napoleon did not die on the  Island of St. Helena, but that the  man who did die there was Napoleon's  double, is the contention of Charles  Omcrra, who brings forward curious  documents which, according to him,  prove his contention. This double is  ���������alleged to have been seized and  placed on board the Bellcrophon,  while the real Napoleon fled to  Austria and died at last under the  windows of his only son, the ill-fated  'Aglon.

Tin? editor of ihe South Fort  George Herald must carry a gun,  for thin is thc way he gors after  another human being:  "The mush-brained effort of  tlie  townsite   tout,   who  manages the Fort George Tribune,  a  rag-  owned   by   tlie Natural  Resources  Security   Company,  Limited, townsite peddlers; edited by their advertising man- '  ager    from    Vancouver,     and  "managed" by the ignoramus,  who,   oncc-in-a-while attempts  to    strengthen     his    master's  hand���������which he loves to fawn  upon���������by taking a flyer in the  colums  of  thc   townsite  company's weekly table-napkin, in  an endeavor to discredit an article  which appeared in these  colums,    warning   tho, public  against such cattle as he. was  very amusing.    In his diatribe  of    last   week   the    rag-timer  writer   refers   to   the   Herald  scribe as "illiterate," and further states that ours were "despicable methods  which HAS,  etc, etc,"  BE-H-A-V-E," Mr Tribune  utility man, or wc will publish  material which will show up  the galaxy of ad. writers and  promoters of the Nechaco  River townsite in a new and  awful light."

NOT TOO RISQUE  Wi? have noticed much ado in  some papers about the Queen of  the Moulin Rouge company, a  troupe that has the short petticoat down to a science iu its advertising. It showed in Fernie  but did not shock anybody in that  blase community, for the Fred  Press remarks:  ''There was no necessity for  leaving the dear girls at home.  A man might have taken his  grandmother with perfect safety, unless, perhaps, she might  have taken him to task for giv.  ing her an evening of boredom.  The show consisted of one  comedian and a lot of people  who might have been eminently successful in other walks of  The cyanide plant at the Napoleon mine has resumed operations.  The Big Tunnel is in 2,000  feet, and everything is working  smoothly. Two shifts of machine miners, and three shifts of  muckers arc employed. No work  is done on Sunday.  The No. 3 crusher at thc  Granby mines will be installed by  June. It has been out of commission since the fire last September.  Last week thc Greenwood  smelter treated 14,145 tons of ore.  Some of the diamond drill holes  ou the Granby mines will besunk  to a depth of 1,500 feet. So far  results arc encouraging.  The Granby smelter has enough  of coke to last until next week.  Last week with six furnaces the  smelter treated 18,548 tons of ore.  For the first three months of  this year the Granby smelter has  produced, gold, 12,551 ounces;  silver, 107,311 ounces, and 5,380,-  159 pounds of copper.  The Lone Star is shipping 90  tons of ore a day, to the Greenwood smelter.  There are 150 men working at  the Rawhide, and daily 800 tons  of ore are being shipped to Greenwood.  Back From Nevada.  Billy Valentine has returned to the  Slocan, after spending several months  in Nevada. He owns some valuable  galena properties on Four Mile creek  in the Slocan which he bonded for  ������30,000. On his way from the  coast he took a look at Steamboat  mountain and thinks it one of the  fakes of theaoe. Pie states that nearly every other prospector in Steamboat  is staked by a Vancouver real estate  man. The Steamboat country is a  good place for timber and. making  gardens, but Mr. Valentine is of the  opinion thrt ore will have to be hauled  into the camp before much can be  shipped out. The vigorous use of  the drill and powder will soon tell the  story about Steamboat- A permanent  camp cannot be built upon hot air.  OLA LOFSTAD  President  in Nelson this month. A. O. Johnson of Phoenix, was re-elected president for B. C, and Charles Grand-  strom of Revelstoke was re-elected  sec-treas.

Warren and R. G. Har-  greayes made an auto trip to the Napoleon mine last week, a distance of 80  miles from Greenwood.

"Residents of British Columbia have abandoned the idea of a peaceful'annexation of Alaska," said A. B. Mackenzie of Rossland, secretary of the  Associated Board of Trade of eastern  British Columbia, in an interview here  today, adding:  "The reason for giving up thc plan  is that the American people do not  seem to appreciate that all we had in  view was the development of that  conntry on a scale commensurate with  the natural resources, similar to that  of our own.  "We have felt for a long time that  under the auspices of our province or  of the Dominion government, Alaska  could have a more rapid economical  development of its natural resources,  particularly in the shape of coal and  gold mines, than it has had todate. If  the American people do not see it that  way, it is no fault of ours.  'There is a large amount or British  and Canadian capital ready to invest  in Alaska when its natural resources  are thrown open to individual enterprises.  "From all that I have heard Alaska  is not prospering as it should. The  people who have given their time and  money to the development of that  country are receiving no recognition  at the hands of the United States government. This has caused the present depression in every line of business in Alaska."  A   Pulpit   has   recently   been  placed in our parish church, presented by the Ladies' Guild  is octagonal in shape and of pitch  pine, and was designed by Messrs  II. Bunting & Son of Victoria,  B. C, and built by our respected  citizen Mr. Westley Connell,    It  is a valuable addition to the furniture,   aud  presents 'a pleasing  appearance.    The Pulpit was dedicated on Sunday morning May  14th,  by   the   Venerable   Archdeacon Beer, who used a special  form of service applicable to the  occasion, which consisted of some  versicles,    hymns,    prayer,    and  benediction.    He   then  ascended  the Pulpit and deliyered an appropriate sermon based on 1 Cor.  IV, 40, pointing out the necessity  of order and method iu life and in  reiigious services,   and   how our  churches and their furniture were  formed on the model of the Jewish Temple.    He slated that the  Pulpit  was the place whence instructions was imparted, and ex-  A. S. BLACK  Secretary  horled thc people to put the instruction they received into daily  practice.  Considering that Greenwood is  suffering from an epidemic of  measles, the congregotion was a  verv good one, and"took an intelligent part in the dedication  service.
