Thought It Was Time  The minister of a rural church  gave out the hymn, "I Love to  Steal Awhile Away," etc. The  regular old precentor being absent,  his functfon devolved upon a good  old deacon, who commenced, "I  Love to Steal," and then broke  down. Raising his voice a little  higher he then sang, "I Love to  Steal." At length.after a desperate cough, he make a final demonstration, and roared out, "I Love  to Steal."!  The effort was too much, every  one but the parson was laughing.  He rose, and with the utmost coolness said:  "Seeing our brother's propensities, let us pray."  1 Quislrly stops couchs. cures colds, and  lienls  tha throat and lungs.      ::      ::      30 cents,  Around Home  .The County Court meets next  Tuesday., .;���������  Fred Jenks got the bounty for  a coyote on Tuesday.

Durnberg, manager of the  Treasure   Mountain   mine,   came  down from Tulameen and Summit  camp, or Leadville,  as it has been  rechristened, and left yesterday for  SpokaDe, headquarters of his company.   He has been very busy getting winter supplies packed to his  camp many which  are required.  Some very fine samples of galena  ore, as saving $200 per ton, have  been shown, making the prospects  of this country extremely bright.  The Treasure Mountain people are  deserving of every success, and no  doubt it will come to them for the  energy   and   courage they  have  shown in developing to the present  stage.   In the tunnel now being  driven ore will be tapped at depth  aud the body explored as to extent.  If    Treasure Mountain does not  prove to be a high class mine it will  be a disappointment to many well  known mining men of repute who  have visited the property out of  pure curiosity,    and others  who  have investigated its tonnage possibilities in behalf of railroad companies.  The Princeton Coal & Land Co.  still require miners and machine  men, and the demand for coal is  brisk.  The development and exploratory  work of the B. C.  Copper Co., at  Voight camp and Copper Mountain,  reveals enormous ore bodies.   As  data  is  collected   from   diamond  drill, tunnel and cut, the confidence  of all concerned is increased.    By  those who have   seen   the  great  mines in British Columbia, including the latest at Hidden Creek,  Voight Camp is pointed to as the  greatest of them all.   The quality  and body of ore surprise experts  and   give rise   to   expression   of  amazement from those acquainted  with mining.   Six diamond drills  and a large force of men are unlocking the treasure vaults as fast  as skill and money can do it.   The  extension of the V. V. E. railway,  already surveyed to Ashnola, eight  miles from Princeton, will give the  necessary transportation,   then   a  favorable location  to accomodate  both Voigt Camp, and surrounding  country.���������Star.

Send for a catalogue of head-  Htones ��������� and monuments, made by  the Kootenay Monumental Work's,  Nelson, B. C.  STILL NEGOTIATING  F. Augustues Heinze is still negotiating with the provincial government for the sale of his undivided  interest in the Columbia & Western  railway grant.   An undivided half  interest in the land has been bought  by the governmen from the C.P.R.  at   forty   cents  per   acre.     Mr.  Heinze desires to sell and the government is inclining to buy.    The  desire to sell on the part of the  copper magnate is supposed to be  brought about by the fact that the  period of tax exemption of his land  has expired.    He is therefore liable  not only to a tax of about $6,000  per. annum   for the future,   but  also to about $60,000 back taxes.  Tax exemption on wild land   in  British Columbia is something of a  joke, as Mr. Heinze has discovered.  You can get your exemption for a  number of years, but when this has  expired you become liable for ten  years back taxes in a lump sum.  It is under this clause of the law  that Mr. Heinze owes the province  about $60,000, being four per cent,  per annum for ten years on about  300,000 acres, valued at fifty cents  per acre.

We need more canning factories  in B. C.  Be cheerful for you will be a long  time dead.  No great poem was ever written  on a full stomach.  Sir your drinks and you  will  seldom get drunk.  The man in perfect   health is  seldom a scoundrel.  Too much wine will  make any  wise man a fool temporarily.  The hen that cackles the loudest  does not always   lay the biggest  egg-    In these modern days a man is  often judged by the size of his buzz  wagon.  It is 2,000 years since Christ  died, and the world is still full of  sinners.  In these days of cushion seats  lets ns not forget the men who  blazed the trails.  About all that Canada really  lacks now is tho discovery of a real  big field of petroleum.  Some people havo fallen into mud  because they got off the water  wagon to pick up the whip.  TnE United States has only had  two first-class presidents. They  were Tom Jefferson and Abe Lincoln.  Even the ancients knew something about advertising, for we  read in the Bible that the place to  put your light is on tho top of a  mountain, and not under a bushel.  The mountain is Greenwood's leading excitement.  Thinking Themes  We are apt to call any narrow,  ignorant outburst of conscience  good. Speaking of some religious  crank, or some little soul that has  beeu swept away by the mob-rush  to some new fad, or some vicious  perverted life that flourishes one  little moral excellence, we say that  such a one is good. The grafter  who is kind to tho poor, the bood-  ler who keeps his promises, the  burglar who does not use tobacco,  the hard-hearted, pig-headed, close-  fisted old skin-flint who never indulges in profane languages, we  think they ought to have a good  mark.  There is nothing more deceptive  than a little fragment of morality  which an otherwise* immoral soul  borrows like peacock feather to  strut with.  Real goodnesa, that which ia of  any mortal account to one's self or  to others is the product of the sum  total of all one is, does, says and  thinks. It is tho- flavor of the  man, his entire personality. Goodness is tho fruit of life, not something to be picked up and worn on  the coat.  "Great moral energy," says  Herbart, "is the result of bruad  views, and of whole unbroken  masses of thought."���������Frank Crane.  Tenderfoot's Luck  It seems as if in the majority of  cases in Colorado it is the "tenderfoot" who makes the discovery of  big gold mines, says the Engineering and Mining Journal. In the  early days of Cripple Creek a man  came down from the mines to  Colorado Springs, and the meeting  him in the street, said: "Well,  how are things up at the Creek?"  "Oh," said the miner, "the miners  are looking for tho gold where it  ought to be, and the tenderfeet  are findiug it where it is." In  Ouray two tenderfeet went to the  top of a sheer cliff of sandstone,  just north of town, and, tying a  rope to a quacking aep sapling, one  lowered tho other about thirty  feet down the face so that he could  crawl into a hole which they had  seen from the valley below. The  floor of the cave was covered with  a foot of red dirt, which assayed  ten ounces of gold per ton,'and this  was the discovery of tho American  Nettle, since credited with an output of more than $2,000,000.  Stratton was not exactly a tenderfoot, but he was a carpenter and  not in any sense a miner and prospected in the summer, took for  assay some common red granite  that he found sticking up like a  vein. And when his first car load  of Indepeudance granite rolled into  the yards of the Boston and Colorado Smelting Company the manager laughed exceedingly, but it  sampled three ounces of gold tojthe  ton and has produced more than  ten millions. The Camp Bird was  staked by a greenhorn just out  from the Royal School of Mines, of  London, the firBt vein he had ever  seen except in books, and it has  produced more than $20,000,000.  Another great gold  mine in tbe  State which will bo nameless so as  not to hurt any one's  feelings and  which has paid many  millions in  dividends,    was   discovered by a  plumber, and some time later when  he had become wealthy and had  learned to wear a clawhammer and  a boiled shirt,  and mix with the  "quality," he was dining out, and  the host said to a friend next him,  "See that man down   the table?  Well, not more than  three years  ago he was doing a job of plumbing  in my cellar, and he got into the  wine bin and drank up a lot of my  finest brand of champagne."   But  it is not always thus  with   the  tenderfoot, for it is recorded of the  Osceola at Ophir that one of them  refused to stake an outcrop, which  Ottawa.���������Not as much is heard  of or is known of the , Agricultural  Department at Ottawa as should bo.  After all is said and done it is ono  of the most important branches of  the government, for agriculture is  one of Canada's basic industry and  thoprogress and prosterifcy of tho  Dominion depends upon tho progress and prosperity 'of tho farmer.  Hon. Martin Burrcll, the Minister  of Agriculture, is a poor advertiser.  Ho is a modest man, to modest  some say for a politician. JJHe  works night and day, and talks  little.  Since ho camo into ollico he has  worked many reforms looking towards the advancement of agricul-  iure. He has initiated many  schemes for the betterment of the  farming industry. He found a  department which was in a rut.  There was no other department at  Ottawa where tho whole service  was so plainly marking time. The  agriculture department has many  *  experts, yet initiative- was discouraged and dry-rot seemed to  have set in.  Mr. Burrell has wakened up the  department, he has infused a new  spirit in every branch of the service  and has succeeded in . inculcating  his own energy and enterprise into  the department.  Hon. Sidney Fisher, the former  minister, had a paternal way of  taking every stray department under his wing. The result was that  the department was loaded up with  work which had nothing in the  world to do with agriculture.  Census and statistics camo under  the administration of tho Minister  of Agriculture; copyrights and  patents, the achives, public health,  and a half dozen other branches  were stowed in this department.  Tho first thing Mr. Burrell did  was to re-arrango theso services.  The census and statistics branch  was transferred-to tho department  of Trade and Commerce, where it  more properly belonged. The  archives branch naturally fits in  with the Secretary of State, and it  was transferred to this department.  Patents ancl copyrights will likely  be transferred this session to tho  department of State, and the public health branch will also likely  be taken from the department of  Agriculture.   .  The most important question  Mr. Burrell undertook on assuming  office was to formulate a general  policy for the betterment of agricultural conditions in Canada. It  was felt, however, that nothing in  this direction could proporly be  done until a general survey of the  agricultural conditions in Canada  had been made. It was therefore  decided to give immediate assistance to agriculture by voting the  sum of $500,000 to this cause by  way of grant to tho provincial  governments on a population basis.  Such grant to be expended for the  cause of agriculture according to a  plan approved by the Minister of  Agriculture at Ottawa.  page after page of. warmed-over  platitudes, unctuous, with the oil of  pationage. We listen open mouthed to stories of real estate sales  whore thev profit almost reached  fabulous percentages. We look  even reverently on the vulgar pile  of brick and stono which some  financial marvel has erected under  tho impression that it is a "homo."  Magazines print portraits of millionaires by tho twelfth of a gross.  We get life^ stories of successful  men, column after column. Is it  any wonder that tho great majority  of our young people begin to believe that the ability to own a six  cylinder car or to wear diamond  buckles on their suspenders is the  stamp of true nobility?  "Canada is an expanding conn-  try. Opportunities for wealth getting aro plentiful. Any man with  a modicum of business souso and  with decent treatment can do well,  can live in peace and plenty, and  can acquire on6ugh]to assure him  against penury in declining years.  Hundreds of^men with the genius  for money making will pile up good  fortunes. But money is not Jthe  end of living. Neither is it necessary for our peace of mind that we  should have everything that the  heart desires. The child with the  most toys is the least contented.  And in this case above all others  the child is father of the man.  "Men and women are forever  wanting. A new car or a new  house, a uew horse, or a new franchise, a new set of furs, or a new  hat, and in the United States particularly a new husband or a new  wife. And when the want is gratified the happiness it bringsismoru-  entary and 3elfish.  "Uuquestionably it is true that  rich people are becoming more  plentiful than ladies and gentlemen.  Vulgar individuals decorated with  precious stones sail down our city  streets or crowd our drawing rooms.  And our eyes aro so dazzled that we  overlook their defects as men and  women, and yearn to go and do  likewise. The country is full of  people who are cultivating a cham-  page taste on a beer salary. Their  determination to get rich overrides  all morality, all reason���������and there  are consequences, olten rude and  terrible."���������Saskatoon Star.  stretches, and to this and that remote part of British Columbia���������I  have been to a good many out-of-  the-way places myself���������I have yet  to hear anything but praise for the  men who follow the trails of the  west and north.

Beside them what a silly, vain  puppet the super-civilized Frenchman appears, likewise tho insular  Englishman trembling with the  terror of being "cotched." Tho  man of the northerly west will go  to any amount of trouble for a  woman and think it a pleasure.  As for tipping a_ man who does ono  a service no matter how strenuous,  I should as soon think of offering a  tip to Earl Groy.

The Western .Man  The Craze for Money  If we could blot out the mental  impression that tlie possession of  money necessarily brings happiness,  fewer cases of embezzlement would  reach the police court, so thinks  the Toronto News. ''But it is  drummed into our oars from childhood that getting money is the  proof of successful living, that tho  man doserving of our imitation is  onewho by many means has amassed  a million dollars. So we have books  on ' 'Success and How to Win it"���������  I quite agree with tho girl  who  says that our western men are the  finest in  the world.    They are 1  Let   us  sec.   A   German   is  too  heavy and primitive.    The Russian borders too near tho Oriental  ���������rightly or wrongly, one suspects  a   trace   of   the   barbaric.     The  Frenchman is tho civilized���������ridiculously "overtrained." Tho insular,  untravelled Englishman is a highly  objectional creature who has been  thoroughly spoiled by a surplus of  silly   womee.    If   he  is   labelled  "eligible," he is a sort of holy being, sot apart, spoken of in  whispers.    Never for one moment does  he   forget   his   eligibility.    From  morning   until   night   he   labors  under a terror, like unto the terror  of Czardom, of being  "cotched,"  (as John Shand would say).    He  is ready to dodge at any moment  the lariat of every designing female  that walks his way.    Eastern Canadians, too���������that  is,   the general  run of city men���������are rather of the  Little Tin God.   Feminine attention has swollen their bosoms with  unseemly    pride.       They    may  achieve true  manhood,  however,  and a fairly decent disposition by  humbling theuselves properly and  coming to live iu the west.    I am  sure there is no other place in the  world where a woman could undertake   a   long   journey   alone���������a  journey of hundreds   of   miles-  coming into contact with scores of  men,  and perhaps not one other  woman,  and meet   with  nothing  but overwhelming kindness every  mile of the way.

These precautions have been embodied in a series of regulations  approved by the Governor General  in Council. The advantage to the  general public of Canada is clearly  show by the scope and demands of  some of the regulations. Concerning canned fruits the regulation  states.

The Clock  I liked to watch the good old  clock that hung .upon the wall; I  really think a man might walk from  Cleveland to St. Paul, and not behind a smoother piece of skillful  craftman ship; the wheels went  round as slick as grease and never  made a slip. I dearly loved for  hours to stand and watch the pendulum; and note the active minute  band and hear the ily wheel hum.  I liked to hear the blamed thing  strike���������but on one fateful day the  boss remarked: "You'd better  hike���������you are not worth your hay.  You're paid to help to sell my  stock and do some other chores,  but all the day you watch the  clock, so chase yourself outdoors."  And then he pushed me with his  feet and fanned me with a chair,  and when I landed in the street  my boots were in the air. Oh!  clocks are fascinating things, and  they have lovely works, and pendulums and bands and springs, but  they are bad for clerks, who yield  to their seductive charm and watch  the hands go round, and listen to  the loud alarm and hear the striker  pound.���������Walt Mason.

Much Natural Gas  Edmonton. - James Brodie, city  gas engineer of Edmonton, reports  that millions of natural gas is going to waste at Pelican Portage,  170 miles northwest of Edmonton,  where he has completed an investigation for the municipality. One  of the wells, sunk to depth of G25  feet by the Dominion government  in 1897, is pouring out 4,000,000  feet a, day. Twelve drillers aro at  work in the district under the  direction of Harry WilliamB a gas  expert. They are sinking wells  for oil with every indication of  success.  The government well, upon  which work was started on July G,  1897,* began to flow the following  October. There were no means  available at that time to use the  product. The government appropriated $7,000 three years ago,  to cap the well. The plan was to  line the well with concrete. Before the work was completed, however, the pressure ripped out the  lining and the well was abandoned.  Politeness  She was one of those 2001b.  ladies. She was passing by a provision store when she trod on a  banana peel and sat gently in a  box of eggs. She arose very  promptly. "I hope I have not  broken them," she said.  "Not at all ma'am;" replied the  polite storekeeper, "they are only  bent."  The laborer who wears out all  his powers in the machinery of  life's work and takes no part in its  thought and imagination, aud the  thinker who woars out his brain  before its time and has no part in  the practical activity of life, have  each lost much of tho pleasure  that rightly belongs to them.  They may not be conscious of it,  but it is none the less true that the  health, happiness and real effectiveness of every man can be  gained only by tbe harmonious  union of labor and thought.

"My cabby stood there smiling, a  man beside him who was even handsomer than he.  *"My brother,' said ho.  "I smiled and bowed, and we started over the long gray road of the  poor to Naples.  "The sight saddened me. I wished  I had started for America, for home!  As we bumped over the terrible slags  of the NapleB streets my resentment  grew.

"This Is the fifth marriage settlement I have had the honour of drawing up for your family, Sir Thomas,  and you will excuse me, I hope, expressing my curiosity respecting one  peculiarity common to them all."  "I think" Interpolated tho baronet,  "I can anticipate what you are going  to say, Cheevers. "Xou are. puzzled to  explain why there is a- uniform dowry  of ������8,000 settled upon my daughters  from the date of their marriage, es-  "pfiiaily when you are aware.that a  similar sum was settled upon my  sisters when they 'married."  "Precisely, Sir Thomas. To speak  openly, I wondered'why the sum waB  not fixed at  ������6,000 or ������10,000."  "T comprehend your meaning fully.  You might be a.long time searching  for'a solution of the problem,and fall  to solve It in the end. It is, however,  an interesting story.  "My eldest sister, Ita, was a charming girl, Idolised by our parents, the  most  popular  of  the  young  county  people of her age, and beloved by the  common people.   Up to the time Immediately  preceding  the   public   announcement of her engagement she  was regarded as heart-free, and unattached to any of the many eligible  admirers  with   whom   she   was   acquainted.   One evening, after dinner,  Mr.  Strewton,  a  neighbour  of ours,  called to know if I could play In a  cricket  match   that  was   being   arranged with a team from the metropolis.    Subsequently he asked If my  father was alone in the library, as he  wished to speak with him.   I brought  him down to the dear old man, and  left the pair of them together, never  dreaming of the surprise that Interview had In store for us all.   About  a week later we were apprised that  Ita had given her heart to Strewton.  That herself and her lover had always  entertained mutual affection for each  other, though Strewton had made no  avowal until his bachelor uncle had  spoken to him of the desirability of  marrying and avoiding'the premature  ageing and loss of real live Interest  in life which Is the fate, of the overwhelming majority of old bachelors.  Strewton avowed his desire to marry  my sister but explained that he never  felt at liberty to disclose his heart's  dearest wish to her, because he recognized that he was dependent upon  his .uncle's generosity for the wherewithal to set up an establishment of  his own.   Contrary to the code of the  romance writer, Strewton's uncle approved his nephew's action and choice,  and guaranteed a generous settlement  if the marriage could be arranged to  the satisfaction of all parties.  "It    was    after    this    Interview  Strewton ascertained that my sister  reciprocated his affection and, later,  secured audience of the pater. I well  remember  my  father   approving  of  Strewton's    manly,    straightforward  way of urging his suit.   'By George,'  he used to say, 'I shall never forget  the earnestness with which eulogising  Ita, young Strewton averred that she  was 'worth her weight in gold,' or the  happy thought that prompted me to  say, 'that she Is; and her own weight  In gold will be her wedding dowry.'  "Of course, Cheevers, you remember  that my  father  was  Director  of  a  Bank at that period  . What do you  think he did?

MINING NEWS   |  OCK*-0<>aaOOO<K>CK>CKXK><><>00<><K><>  The Shaake Machine works, New  ���������Westminster, have receiAed an  order for tho construction of a  Koch ford dredge to be used iu gold  ���������dredging operations on fche Frazer  river near Hope. It was ordered  by Mr. A.E. Hansford'of Seattle,  an old gold minor from Alaska.  The dredge will cost about $30,000  and will bo ready by the first of  1013. When completed it will be  towed up the river as far as possible by a tugboat and will be taken  tho rest of tho way by the use of  winches and hawsers attached to  trees on the river hank.  Tho deputy mining recorder at  Hope has issued the licenco for the  operations. It covers five miles of  the river immediately above Hope.  The remainder of fche river between  Hope and Yale has already boon  taken up by similar leases.  Tho Iirst gold mining in British  Columbia���������except the very  early  operations of the Spaniards on the  west coast of Vancouver Island-  was oh the bars of tho Fraser from  Hope to Yale, Union Bar, American,   Emory,  Texas,  Boston   and  Hills, the richest of them all.    aSTo  one knows how much gold was recovered  from  1857  to  1SG2 from  tho then  deep deposits.    But the  treasure   was   not   inexhaustible;  the returns began to diminish aud  the  creeks   of   far   Cariboo   were  calling   imperiously   to   fche ��������� cosmopolitan   army   of   gold-seekers  who had built up Hope, Yale and  Emory City.  Had the bars been left untouched  for the half century thafe has passed since 'G2 they would no doubt  be now very rich. The amount of  gold brought clown by the waters  of the Fraser year by year is probably almost constant, and while  fche deposit on any one bar for one  year will not repay very much  labor, tho accumulated deposits  of a long period of years are of  great value.  Gold washing ab the bars has  never ceased.- The patient Chinese  who are well pleased with a few  dollars a day havo repaired to fche  Fraser year after year. Many  dredging schemes have been floated  and some have achieved temporary  success but fche current of the  Fraser is strong and treacherous  and to fche present every attempt  has ended finally in failure. Possibly those who are now about to  try again have studied tho experiences of others and have equipment better adapted to the conditions. ���������West Yale Beview.  A. Erskino Smith, managing  director of the Red Cliff Mining  Co., has been in Stewart tho best  part of fche week. He .eporfcs that  J. L. Parker, a mining man of well  known ability, is at the company's  property making an exhaustive  examination as to value, quantity  of ore blocked oufc, etc. Mr. Parker is employed by the Red Cliff  Mining Co. aud his professional  report will no doubt bo placed .before a meeting of the company, to  be held in Vancouver Nov. 14th.  With this knowledge and detail at  hand the company will be in a  position to determine what course  to take.  Thore has been talk of a smelter  being built on the canal. This,  and tho consideration of other oufc-  sido capital offering, will probably  be discussed at the meeting.  J. M. Turnbull, tho representative of the Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Co. of Canada, is in company with Mr. Parker while that  gentleman is proceeding with his  examination. Tho fact that men  of such standing in tho mining  world are in the district is in itself  a very gratifying fact.���������Stewart  Minor.  News was brought down on  last evening's train by Fire Warden G. A. Kerr, whoso headquarters are at Kitselas, that great excitement reigns afc that place over  tho rich finds of free milling ore  that have recently been discovered.  That it is the real thing and is  tremendously rich is established  beyond doubt. Assays made recently have run as high as ������700 to  the ton, and quantities of it are to  be found within a short distance of  fche railroad.  The recent strike made at Kit-  sumkalum Lake in this district,  and the present find are attracting  much interest in mining circles  to the gold-bearing quartz of that  section of the interior where gold  is known to exist and which was  worked some years ago.  So far no great amount of work  has been done, and will not be  probably, until the spring, on  account of the snow and difficulty  of getting supplies, material, etc.,  on the ground, for fche early stages  of development work.  Quite a rush has been going on  to the vicinity and a number of  claims staked and despite the obstacles to be contended with stated above, one company thinks  with the railroad facilities at  hand, they may be able to make  a trial shipment.  The coming spring will see a  great development iu quartz mining in this promising district, as  for some years experienced prospectors havo been going over the  ground, and mineral in paying  quantities has been known to exist. Theso men have only been  waiting for tho railroad through  the country to be completed, to  enable them to open up their  mines and obtain the commercial  returns from the known mineral  wealth of this rich section of the  province in the shape of the much  to be desired dollars and cents.���������  Prince Rupert News.  Mafe Trewhella made a shipment  of twenty-five tons of oxidized oro  from the Phoenix this week.' Ifc  was taken from a vein'ten feet  from the one from which he has  made the previous shipments. He  believes that both are veins from  the same ledge and that they will  uuite at depth into one largo ledge.  Tho oxidized seam carries from ten  inches to a foot of ore that seems  to bo of a high grade. Mr.. Trewhella did not care to hazard a  guess as to tho value of tho shipment, but said that lie believed  that the ore will run high.  When it is considered that Mr.  Trewhella had no capital beyond  his energy and his capacity for  work  when  lie took   hold  of tho  Phoenix under a loase, he had done  remarkably well, as, besides making a profit, he has demonstrated  that tho Phoenix will, with a not  very great expenditure, make a  mine. Recently the owners were  offered a considerable sum for the  mine, but refused it, and said that  it was not for sale.���������Rossland  Miner.  .f-SS^-S^-fSts-M^S^  c  Y  DEALER   IN    DRY    GOODS,  GROCERIES 2������ JC  BOOTS   AND   SHOES,      X  HARDWARE,   ETC.

What promises to be the,largest  deposit of hematite iron ore that  has yet been discovered, and possibly one of the largest in North  America, has' been located by  Messrs William McNair and Peter  Kenyon, of Vancouver and Bella  Coola, respectively.

The directors of the British  Pacific Coal company who visited  their property on Graham island  a short time ago were enthusiastic  over the outcroppings aud showing  of coal in the 700 foot tunnel, as  represented in the seven seams exposed, says the Vancouver World.  Mr. Fanlds, the engineer in  charge, declared that the property  was one of the best coal properties  in Canada and that the coal itself,  being anthracite of the first quality,  rivalled the superior products of  tho anthracite coal mines in Pennsylvania or the famous Welch collieries.  The directors visited the bunk-  houses, mess house and office of  the company, which aro conveniently situated to the works, and  also inspected the tramway from  the mine's mouth to tbe 700 foot  pier which extends far out into the  inlet in order that fche deepest craft  may load at low tide.  All of tho help, as jvell as miners and surface men, are white, no  orientals or foreigners being employed.  The directors heartly endorse fche  report on both the British Pacific  and Standard properties as given  out by Mr. Faulds, and they believe the enormous resources of  Graham Island will, when properly opened up, awake the eyes of  the world.  FRUIT PACKING SCHOOLS  A Pure Cream of Tartar Powder  Dr. Wm. Sedgwick Saunders, Medical. Officer  of Health of the city of London, Eng., was  good enough to say that a long and universal experience has proved a cream of tartar  powder the most efficient, safe and economical, making food which could not be  deleterious to the most delicate stomach.  In England the sale of baking powder  containing alum is absolutely prohibited.  WHEN BUYING BAKING POWDER, READ THE LABEL.  The Department of Agriculture,  in accordance with its policy of the  past three years, will continue the  fruit packing schools during the  coming winter. The packing  schools proved even moro popular  in 1912 than previously and wo expect, from tho number of applications already in, that there will be  a great growth in the work fchis  winter. Ifc is hoped that this year  eohools will be placed in every  fruit district of thu province, where  a sufficient number of pupils can  Department, in previous years has  demonstrated its efficiency in meeting the competition of Oregon and  Washington in fruit packing. The  experience and standing of the  instructors scoured and the confidence reposed in them by the  Department, guaranteed to the  highest class of instruction.  As in previous years the local  administration of the packing  schools will lie placed in tho hands  of a responsible local body, such as  the Farmers' Institute, the Fruit  Growers' Association, or the Board  of Trade.  The Department of Agriculture  provides the instructor and pays  his expenses. The department will  also bear the cost of tho -packing  paper, the fruit and all other legitimate expenses, except that of the  Secretarial work, which it has been  found most satisfactory to leave to  local arrangement.  The responsible organization in  each case will be required to guarantee a minimum of twelve pupils,-  but not more than fifteen,- with the  proper qualifications, at a fee of  three dollars each, to take the  twelve lessons of two and a half  hours a lesson, the school extending over one week. In a limited  number of districts a double packing school can be arranged for, in  which the minimum guarantee will  be twenty-four pupils, but not more  than thirty, for the same number  of lessons. The guaranteeing o r-  ganization willalso arrange for and  bear fche expense of fche hall, its  heating and lightning.  The hall for fifteen pupils must  be at least thirty feet by fifteen  feet, and well lighted. It must be  heated sufficiently to prevent chilling of fingers of the packers, ancl  to prevent freezing of the fruit at  night.  The department will as far as  possible, use local fruit. At the  time of making application for the  packing school, you aro requested  to reserve fruit at tho rate of 2i to  .3 boxes per pupil. The hardier  varieties, such as Ben Davis, are  preferred. Fruifc must be in good  condition, but need nofc be graded  and none should run uuder 2}  inches in diameter. The Department will pay the legitimate market  price for this fruit. If local fruit  can be secured, the Department  should be expressly notified and  will undertake to secure same.  The instructor will -bring with  him the necessary packing tables  and fruit paper. Tho Department  expects that he will be met on his  arrival by some responsible person,  who should provide him with all  necessary information, so as to get  the school under way without loss  of time.  Ifc seems hardly necessary to  present to yon the important ad  vantages to be gained from the  packing schools, particularly in the  way of practical and thorough instruction and thorough instruction  in actual commercial packing.  Pupils will learn in addition, a  good deal about the methods and  equipment used by the moBfc progressive Associations, will also  learn a good deal of tho interpretation of the Fruit Marks Act,  and will learn a great deal of value  about exhibition packing by attending the packing school for instruction.

That is to miss the honor in taking  part in a great battle, and to die  ingloriously at homo, when his  country needs him. An artilleryman from Michigan brought this  out during the Civil War.  The man had only just gone to  the front, and had seen no real  fighting. One day while on the  march he fell and was run over by  the gun carriage. He was so badly  crushed that, sorely against his  will, he had to be furloughed and  sent home.  While he lay in bed under the  doctors care the battle of Gettysburg was fought. The man feared  he would die, and keenly regretted  that, since he must go, it could not  have been on that glorious field.  He called upon the doctor to hear  his last request.  "Doctor, if I go, promise me  this: that my stone shall bear these  words: 'Killed at Gettysburg, in  the front of battle.'"  "But you weren't," objected the  physician.  "I know. But it wasn't my  fault. If you can't say that, then  say, Killed at Gettysburg���������during  a temporary absence at Brookfield,  Michigan.'
