The   fair  building  was gaily decorated and well laid  out and the exhibits placed to excellent advantage.     Long   tables  traversed   the  rink  at each side  with beautiful floral displays and  evergreens dividing off the dancing floor.    The ' district exhibits  occupied the tables  on one side  while the domestic exhibit occupied  the other and the poultry show in  ijhecnrling rink. '^Excellent taste  had been shown in the decoration  of. the whole place.   Mr.  Tilley,  the manager, and Mr. P. H. Mc-  Currach,  the sec.-treas, - who increased their fame by putting the  Greenwood   district   display   together, being responsible.  Of the exhibits special mention  should be made regarding P.  Burns stall, who had gone to considerable expense, time and trouble  in making a display which would  be a credit to much larger places.  The ladies, too, did remarkably  well and without their aid the fair  this year would not have come up  to the mark. The business men of  Greenwood are to be congratulated  in responding to the call of the  management in decorating their  places of business and the city certainly did itself proud.  One of the points of greatest  attraction was the exhibit of fine  arts, ��������� occupying a splendid position at the right hand side of the  hall, this remarkable display attracted the attention of all who  entered the building, and was  in charge of the Boundary  Women's Institute who obligingly  explained methods and results to  scores of inquirers.  Undoubtedly the moving spirit  of the fair was the manager and  secretary. They had also the able  co-operation of the president, F.  W. MacLaine who had his coat off  and sleeves rolled up weeks beforehand. Many others labored unselfishly including the ladies who  did their work nobly and well.  The press owes a debt of gratitude  to the management for access and  assistance in gathering statistics.  Tho fair was officially opened at  3 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon  when Judge Brown, President McLaine, President Clark of Grand  Forks Agricultural Association,  Mayor Matheson, of Phoenix,  Manager Tilley and Mr. Rendell  were on the platform, President  McLaine read telegrams from Prico  Ellison, Hon. Martin Burrell and  Mayor Fripp, of Grand Forks,  stating their ^inability to be present.  It afforded Judgo Brown great  pleasure' to be present at the 3rd  annual fair and congratulated the  management on the splendid success of the fair. It was not only a  pleasure but an education to see  the products of the field and mines.  Man is a peculiar animal and likes  to mix with his neighbor and this  annual event gives one an opportunity to minglewith one another.  Judge Brown Baid that Greenwood  district should be proud of her  agricultural resources and '-back  to the land" was a good slogan.  Mayor D. J. Matheson, of  Phoenix, stated that Greenwood  does not need to take a back seat  from anyone when it comes to a  fair and congratulated the officers  Forks  li  Clark, president of the Grand  'orks   Agricultural   Association,  hought there was a better exhibit  and  larger attendance than   last  year, in fact Greenwood had a larger crowd than Grand   Forks had  on their opening day.    It is hard  work to get up a'iair and was   deserving   of   the best support the  public   could give.     Our display  was perfect and he noticed the vast  improvement over  last year  and  Greenwood   could > make *  Grand  Forks go some in regard to small  fruits.' He referred to one~pf--our  citizens taking 13 prizes out of 16  entries at the Grand Forks fair and  surely this was something to be  proud of.    To build up. a fair the  people must support it and the success of our fair was no doubt due  to the magnificent assistance of the  Boundary Women's Institute.  J. E. Jackson, M.P.P., in formally opening the fair congratulated Greenwood district on the  splendid exhibits. Agricultural,  and cattle raising is coming into  prominence and suggested bringing  in a car-load of pure-bred cattle.  The feature of a fair is social and  educational and he hoped all  would enjoy themselves.  President McLaine who introduced the speakers proposed three  cheers and with three rousing  cheers and a tiger the fair was  officially opened.  MINERALS  The exhibit of minerals under  tho care of Ola Lofstad was the  largest and most varied collection  ever seen in the Boundary. Fine  collections of ores were shown from  the Mother Lode, Argo, Rob,  Sally, 49th Parallel, Crescent Fraction, Prince Henry, Sfcrathmore,  Jewel, Skylark, Elkhorn, Providence, Crescent, Granby, Rawhide,  Big Copper, Golden Crown, King  Soloman, Starve-out, Empress,  Mayflower, Dynamo, Johansburg,  N'o. 7, Athelstan, Sudbury, Jim  Fraction, Hartford, Bay, Togo,  Charmer, Last Chance, Lone Star,  and Bounty Fraction.

A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  :���������������������������   Somr   English   is still   being  spoken in Phoenix and Vancouver.  Feed your soul with great  thoughts and you will have no  timo to backbite your neighbor.  The man who pays his subscription to a newspaper promptly is a  jewel who should wear wings when  he jumps oil' this earthly trail.  Some years ago we remarked  that if the Duke of York and his  party were to see 2*7ew Denver,  they would probably never again  care to live in England.  This world has many human  polywogs who delight in spitting  slime over other people. Living  in the mud themselves they expect  that their neighbors must also like  it.  Good thoughts and a life kept  free from evil words or deeds will  bring repose to the mind and digestion to the stomach. Wrong  thoughts coupled with errors in  eating cause 90 per cent of the diseases man is persecuted with.  A Phofessor in Tennessee says  that he can invent a machine that  will run 600 miles an hour. At  present he runs it with the wheels  in his head, but if such a thing  should come to pass, a man could  breakfast in Winnipeg, lunch in  Greenwood, and go to bed crazy or  in the Sandwich Islands.  If they are up-to-date the impression is favorable. If not, the effect  is much the same as can be produced by looking at a tramp who  says he represents such and such a  community. When the people get  more senbe there will be fewer and  better papers in this glorious country of fruit, flowers, strikes, real  estate and golden future.  Just 20 years ago ^last Sunday  The Ledge]] waB born in Nakusp.  At that time Nakusp was a hot  railway camp and had four policeman. Now it is an agricultural  village, and for years this paper  has had no subscribers there. It  was Dan McGillvray and Frank  Fletcher who induced the writer  to start a paper in that camp. They  havo gone to push clouds with the  angels; also Ric Fraser who set the  first type for this famous journal.  The editor and financier is still  holding the pen, and will probably  do so for a few more moonB.  About   a dozen  years   ago we  wrote that in   the   Boundary the  Cascade Record had ceased publication and that the editor had gone  farming.   This shows wisdom as  there are too many editors trying to  shove the pen instead of the plow.  In Greenwood the Miner has sold  out to  the  Times,  which shows  horse sense, when a town  cannot  support two  papers.    In Nelson  the sheriff has turned the blue on  the Miner, and its future is nebulous.   There are too many papers  in B.C. which is the fault of the  people.   Local envy between towns  often keep rags alive that bring  neither honor nor money to their  owners.    Better they were dead  than.live on as horrible abortions  of typography,   rotten with dead  ads, and silly with scribblings of  infantile and senile pens.   Away  from home a man in judged by his  coat. So it is with a paper. Strangers judge a town and district by  ' Many editors write such a poor  hand that it is almost unreadable.  We had the complaint years ago  but have recovered. At one time  a Chinaman picked np a piece of  our copy and started to danc6  shouting, "A lette flom home."  Horace Greeley was probably the  worst penman in the United States.  Being in the uptown portion of  New York one day, and wishing  to send a telegram and also to get  shaved, he entered an hotel and  sent his despatch. Then passing  to the barbar shop, he sat down in  an operating chair, and.(according  to his cuBtom) was soon sound  asleep. Meanwhile the telegram  had created a profound sensation,  Mr. Greeley having thrown it down  hastily on the desk neglecting to  translate it. Nobody from the  manager down being able to supply  the legible equivalent for the mysterious characters, a messenger  was Bent to the barbar shop with  the screed. Waking with a start  and supposing that the boy had  brought an answer to his despatch,  Mr. Greeley took the paper, scanned it for a moment, and then,  with a look of deep disgust, piped  out, "What blamed idiot wrote  that?  Thinking Themes  It is the day of efficiency experts. There are skilled men who  go to the manufacturing plant or  any other.kind of business organization and find out what is the  matter, why tbe concern is losing  money, where the waste is, what is  the point of weakness.  The trouble may lie with the  foreman of Department B, or with  the workmen in the yards, with  neglect here and carelessness there.  The eagle eye of the expert sees  the flaw, the boss remedies the  evil, and the factory takes Qa leap  towards 16 per cent, dividends.  It is a great idea.  It would be a greater idea if one  knew where we could find, an  efficiency expert in living, one who  could examine our bodies, habits,  and the insides of our minds, and  souls, see where a screw is loose or  where oil is needed, and so advise  ns how to readjust our lives and  make living to be efficient and  worth while.  For the difficulty with most of  us is not poor health, lack of book  learning, unprofitable business or  harassing surroundings; it is that  we do  living.  world, she makes wreck and  ruin  of her domestic affairs.  He might go to the married  couple on the verge of separation  and make them see tho obstacle  that threatens disaster to their  love, and how to remove that  obstacle.  He might go to the man who is  a failure and direct him how to  adjust himself to non-success so as  to make his life even richer than  success could make it.  He might go to the embittered,  to those souls who, scorpion-like,  sting themselves with their own  scorn, and give them some antidote  of common sense that would bring  peace between them and themselves.  He might go to the headstrong,  fatuous, egotistic, and unreasonable and fix the deranged machinery of their souls.  He might go to the superstitious,  the half insane faddists, the prejudiced and all who had given  themselves over to some hypnotic  nonsence, and bring them back to  sanity.  But, alasl I fear the life efficiency expert would starve. For  the last place we look for the thiDg  that is the matter with us is within ourselves. The universal infatuation of the numan race is  that it is outer things and other  folks that always are to blame.  What the fool human being  wants is for somebody to change  circumstances, not himself.��������� Dr.  Frank Crane.

The  origin of the fire is unknown and  the loss is heavy as there was no  insurance. Mr. McDonald had  hard work saving the horses and  were it not for the timely arrival  of neighbors the loss would have  been much greater. Mr. McDonald is an industrious farmer  and the fire occurring at this  time of the year is particularly  distressing. It means, building  over again and buying winter  feed for the cattle.

D. B. Miller, who is president of the new company which is  to build the dredge, Btated that as  soon as he arrived back from Spokane he will start operations for  the building of the dredge, which  will be of the suction type.  The marble quarry at Marble-  head is producing a fine grade of  marble now. There are seven or  eight carloads ready for shipment  and it is expected that when the  miners get through the layer that  is now being uncovered that they  will strike a better grade than ever  has been taken out of the quarry  before.  Lou Williams and crew came  down from the Great Britain on  Sunday, having to stop on account  of the snow getting too deep for  them to operate easily.
