The Grand Forks Gazette said  that just as it went to press last  week a report anived that Greenwood wtis in (lames and the fire  beyond control. There never was  any danger of the fire getting beyond control, owing to the quick  and efficient manner in which the  fire brigade handled what started  out as a real hot blaze.  Barry Dale Came down from  Carmi last Tuesday. For thc'pasl-  three months he has been proving  up on his pre-emption and doing  assessment work on his mineral  claims. He says that the surveyor-  ou the Midway and Vernon railway have located a less than J \  per cent grade from Car mi to the  summit of the divide between the  West Fork and the Okanagan."  The. annual meeting of tho Kettle River and South Okanagan  Pioneers' association, held at Kere  meos last Thursday, was not as  largely attended as usual. Owing  to various causes the attendance  from the Boundary was slim, although a largo number intended t)  have gone. Next time- wc hope to  go strong enough to capture tho  Similkauieen.  Thos. Connollys, a strike-breaker  who has been in Eholt for some  weeks, was up before Stipendiary  Magistrate McMynii Tuesday last,  charged under Section .501 of the  Code with intimidating regular  workmen of the 0. P. R. Charge  wasn't proved and case dismissed.  runs 10 to 20 per cent in copper  but is bunchy and the formation  badly broke.!! up. J. G. Haas, M.  IC, the locator and one of the'prin-  cipal owners, has always had groat  faith in the claim,' and the work  now beitig done is along 'the lines  followed by him for years in prospecting, for the lead at depth.  If the ore is found in place the  Bruce and adjoining claims-will  make one of the richest copper-gold  camps in British Columbia.  A friend or eneniy* lias kindly or  unkindly presented this ollict* with  a pair of second-hand riding bloomers, evidently of English design.  Thi*y are part buckskin, part sole  leather and part cloth. There are  a pair of foilr-bnWon buckskin cuffs  at what is evidently the lower end '.  The upper end is furnished with  loops in which a cinch or belly-  band may be inserted, presumably  to hold the things in plaoo. Wlien  inflated they appear to have been  carved ou the bias for the purpose  of "following the lines of an abnormally knock-kneed person. Ju  fact, when evenly weighted, the  tendency of the buckskin cuffs is  ���������to crossleg about three inches,  which would lead to the conclusion that the. original owner had  been spirally constructed and was  of the gabbro formation. The garment is reversible, and can be worn  forniust or behind without disturbing, any of the graceful folds. There  arc about ten yards of good English  tweed jn tho specimen sent us, besides, sole leather', buckskin, and  .wrought iron Indoles and eye**, making' a garment weighng about thirty  pounds. It will be sent to the  Toronto medical college for an  opinion as to what species was*in-  tended to fit such a garment.  r-hare'of the business. The Knox [  is turning away people every night ���������  owing to tin? fact that it. has but a  limited , number ;of rooms.' The  Washington is doing well, so is the  Cariboo. 1 lie Premier is full, and  the restaurants and lodging houses  are doing a fair share of business.  Merchants are not complaining,  especially those handling general  merchandise. The owners of the  Cariboo and Grand Turk Fraction  mineral claimr are refusing permissions to erect other than cabin  dwellings on their claims, for the  reason that there are enough business houses in '���������'Kuoxville" for the  basin Oris offering. They have also  been successful in shutting off the  sale of liquor in   blind  pigs and in  Western Float!

This year tho fruit crop of B. C.  will be worth ������1,500,000.  SATURDAY'S FIRE.  Copper street was the scene of a  brisk fire about4 p. m. last Saturday. While Mrs. Darling was  using gasoline in cU:::.ing clothes  the can exploded, burning her  severely on the arms :m:l face and  setting fire fb the fror.ii'cs. The  lire spread rapidly and demolished  the building, also the Victoria hotel and Jaynes grocery store, while  the roof of Holmes & Kennedy's  building was badly damaged. The  lack of wind, together with the  high water" pressure and.the excellent service of 'the' fire" brigade'  prevented the spread of the flames  amidst a lot of buildings that  burned like tinder. , Few 'brigades  in British Columbia could have  handled it as well and the thanks  of the cit}T are due the tire boys  for their promptness iu getting the  water going and the excellence of  their work throughout. Within  five minutes after tho alarm was  sounded six streams were playing  on tbe flames,  were   present i  'clubs" that would be mere saloon  dives and tinhorn gambing joints.���������  ICmpire.  Refuse to Pay.  Most of the Insurance companies  which sustained losses in the recent lire at Feruie have already  settled with their policy holders  and the others will do so immediately. There is one coinpa^*,  however, the Law Union and  Crown Insurance company, which  declines to admit any liability, on  tbe.grounds that the loss was  caused by forest fires and that  their policies contain a clause exempting" them under such conditions. The compan}* carried several risks in the city, aud,the holders of the policy are indignant at J  such action and are preparing to  make an organized effort to endeavor to recover their losses.    "  New Use for Fruit Trees.  While delivering goods Saturday  last W. Grieves had the misfortune  to overturn .his wagon with tlie result that the horses took fright and  ran away. They were, however,  brought to a sudden stop by colliding with an] apple tree. While  trying to extricate the animals Mr,  Johti Carter, who came to the assistance of the driver, dislocated  his.thumb. It is a common occurrence for runaway horses to.be  brought up by collision with telephone or electric poles, but to be  stopped by a four-year-old apple  tree will give our .outssde readers  an idea of the marvellous growth  of young trees in this district.���������  Summerland Review.

On tho surface the ore  large numbers,  rendered valuable assistance in removing goods to a pkice of safety.  nolmes & Kennedy had $1,150  insurance, but thoir loss will probably exceed this by 6500.  Mr. Jaynes had no insurance but  a,large part of his stock was saved.  Loss about $500. D. A. Banner-  man owned the building, but had  no insurance.  The buildiug where the fire  originated'was owned by R. J.  Ben ley and "had an insurance of  $-100. The'building cost $2,000,  while Mrs. Darling lost everything  and had no insurance.  The Victoria hotel, owned by  Messrs. nolmes A^FIoyd, had an  insurance of Sl,500 on the building and 8500 on the stock. Hugh  McGillivray saved the cash register  but that was all. The loso will  probably be $5,000 on the Victoria.  Tho roomers in the Victoria lost  everything which they were not  we/*ring ai the time.  Gieenwoo.1 i-s to bccoiigratuliiced  that the fire was confined to the  destruction ot these buildings.  Hut two accidents occurred. Jim  Chirk 'and Lls Thompson fell off  a building, but neither was dan-  giroitsly injured. Both will be  till right in a few days.  Asking Heavy Damages..  An action fo1* damages has been  entered in tho courts against tho  British Columbia Copper company  by James Ii, and Mrs. Dimuiick.  The amount of damages asked is  $19,000, and is, the outcome of the  blasting accident at the Mother  Lode mine a fow weeks ago resulting in the death of Eunice,  their two-year-old' daughter and  serious injuries to Miv-i.   Dimmiek.  Taylor & O'dhea of'Nelson are  solicitors for the plaintiffs.  Conditions Unchanged.  There is no chango in tho situation at Prince Rupert other than  increasing the number of surveyed  lots. Tho survey parties are making good '.progress, considering the  weather 1ms not been gootl.'' Nothing is known respecting the sale of  lots, but it is gcnei'.illy accepted  n'oue will be sold until spring. Tho  promised vinil. of President Hays is  not likely to take place this fall, so  no change need bo looked for from  then. T. P.

The eighth ordinary general  meeting of the Granby company  will be held at the bead office, 52  Broadway, New York, on Tuesday, October 6th, for the purpose  of electing directors and transacting other business.  Leasers in Luck.  Word reaches us that the lesees  of the Reco miuo at Sandon have  struck it rich. They have uncovered a body of high-grade ore  and have been offered $25,000 to  (���������nit. Some time ago thev were  offered $15,000;"hut held o"n, now  $25,000 looks too small for them,  although' the lease expires next  April.���������Kootenaian.  Smith Curtis a Frost.  The Smitih Curtis-meeting here  on Monday night "was certainly a  frosty fizzle. Whether through a  misunderstanding, lack of inierest,  or Local Liberal dissension, there  was no one to meet the Liberal  candidate on his arrival, but certainly tbe whole thing was a failure. In the absence of John  Keen, who was at Poplar, nothing  was done in tho way of arrangements. Even the hall was not en-  gttged until after Mr. Curtis' arrival. It assuredly showed lack  of interest or wilful neglect, to say  the least.���������Kas'o Kootenaian.  Not Before Midsummer.  Reports that the additional 100  miles of theG. T.

Welch & Stewart will  have all they can do to get enough  supplies through to the front this  fall to keep the sub-contractors on  the first 100 miles at work.

BOWSERATDEITIST'S  Wife Tells of Case of Toothache  and How It Was Relieved.  hcAD OF HOUSE A SCOFFER.  that -.'<���������, Until He Had Trouble With  His Molars and Had to Seek Medical  Help It. Order to Relieve His Sufferings. ..-, ������������������'.'!'���������.  [Copyright, 190S, by T.'C. McClurc],  i' 1 had been suffering with toothache  'for a couple of days before Mr. Bowser  became aware of tlio fact. Knowing  how lie would'"perform," 1 did my best  to conceal tlic matter, but after having  suffered such pain all night Unit I could  not close my eyes in sleep 1 had to tell  liiin that I must pay a visit to the dentist. "....-..:'���������.  "Oh, you must go to'the.dentist, eh?"  ���������lie queried. "Been out wading in n  iiimil puddle in your bare feetl Well,  ���������what did you expect?"       ���������  "You know I 'have done 'nothing of  -the kind; Mr. Bowser. In going to tho  ��������� butcher shop tho other day I forgot my  rubbers and probably got my feet it little damp."  "A little damp! You probably got 'em  soaking wet! .Thai's like a woman���������to  forget her rubbers and go strolling  about in a shower. By ..thunder, Mrs.  r.o\'i������,er, but bow you have niunaged to  ���������live as long us you have boats mo!"  "But isn't everybody liable to havo  toothache?" I asked.  "No, ma'am, everybody isn't. For In-  " GEE WHIZ 1    JF.MIll*' !"  'ptaucc, I never had it in my whole life.  Only people without brains enough to  take care of themselves have such ailments. Well, don't look for any sympathy from mo. On the contrary, I hopo  ,tbe dentist .will"gouge and tile aud  ���������probe and hurt as much as ho can. No  use crying around about it, but get on  ���������'.'your,hat and go through with it."  "Do you think he'll have to pull it?"  i   "Of   course,   aud   it  will   hurt  Ilka  ���������blazes."  "And you won't stay and go with  me?"  ;   "I'd like to see myself!"  1  "But   may   I   telephone,  you   about  noon?"  . "No, ma'am, you mayn't. If the den-  'tist pulls your head off, I shall find It  out when I get homo, and that will be  time enough. No woman that forgets  her rubbers when it's raining cats and  dogs deserves any sympathy. If you  are crying around this evening, don't  expect me to put myself out iu the  'least Forgot your rubbers! Humph!"  ; With that ho was gone, and 1 took  my sorrowful way to the dentist. lie  found a cavity and bad it plugged with  cotton batting in ten -minutes, and the  -'acho soon disappeared.- When Mr.  'Bowser came home ut night I had quite  recovered my spirits. I started to tell  him all about tin-* cure, but he waved  ���������Lis hand and interrupted:  ���������-I dou't want to hear about it. It  ���������won't be over n week before you will  Ibc sitting on a chunk of ice or doing  Boine other silly thing and have to go  Ithrough with it again. A man learns  iby experience; a. woman must havo  Iher neck broken to get sense into bei  Ihead."  - Mr. Bowser's words may look brutal  'in cold print, but I. know that ho didn't  really mean them that way. I didn't  ihope for revenge, but it came to me  b'ust tbe same, and only a night or two  later. He'had been out fussing with  the drain In the back yard and got bis  'feet damp. Two hours later as .we sat  ireading he gave a sudden start and  tarried his hand to his jaw.  ,  "Did you bite your tongue?" I asked.  ��������� "Why don't you ask if I have bitten  my big toe?" lie demanded.  "But you gave such a sudden start."  ��������� "Can"t a man give sudden starts In  bis own house if he wants to?"  Sho Smelled Camphor,  i Then ho slipped upstairs and was  gone ten minutes, and when ho came  down I smelled camphor on bis breath.  il suspected thcu that one of his teeth  'lind given him a twist. He sat down  'and tried to get very busy with tho  newspaper, but after about five minutes he was fairly lifted out of his  chair and almost uttered a warwhoop.  "Mr. Bowser, have you sat down on  n tack or what?" I nsked.  "Geo whiz! .Icriiimy!" he groaned,  Iwlth his hand pressing his jaw.  "You've got the toothache!"  "I-I deny It!"  "You went out In that wot yard nnd  Iworked at Hint old drain without your  [rubbers on, and toothache is the result.  That's tho way with a man. How you  Jiuve lived to your present age Is a puss-  Klo to mo."  I He hnd openod his mouth to deny it  Iwhb toothache whon another "Jump"  Btruck him ami tlrow his heels off the  floor.,, It was no use to try to deceive  any longer. I had to lead him oyer to  tho lounge nnd assist him to Ho down,  and by that time his groans sounded  like n horse In Its dying agonies. During the next half hour-  He asked for camphor.  Ho asked for peppermint.  lie asked for wlntergrecn.  Ho asked for arnica.  Ho wanted hot salt.  Ho wanted hot nslies.  "Well, you are in for It," I snld ns  *>ono of the remedies did any good. "If  you had had your rubbers on, you sec��������� |  ���������But you didn't have.

"Possibly, but whon the '.toothache  seizes a man like you that's never had  It before it goes hard with him. Have  you anything on your conscience that  you wish to confess, Mr. Bowser?"  "Confession bo hanged!" ho roared  as ho drew up his legs. "Mrs. Bowser,  can you stand by and see me suffer tha  way I do and not move a finger?"  "You'll havo to do as I did, dear.

Once also tho "jumps" left him for  about two .minutes,.nnd' ho was beginning  to get: chesty  when   they  came  back   and   almost   twisted   his   face  around to the back of his neck.  Not a wink did cither one of us  sleep that night. Nothing I could try  had any beneficial effect.

Two hours later ho said he would go  If I would go with him, but it was two  more before 1 got him out of the house.  Then ho wanted to walk around the  block and to go back home aud wait  tin ,hour longer and to put it off till  next week. If a gang of boys hadn't  followed us, grinning and chuckling,  he would surely have got away from  me. Ho was finally landed in the dentist's chair, and by my holding both  his hands aud calling him honey and  dear ho was induced to open his  mouth. The dentist said jt was ��������� a  more nothing and then seized a double  tooth in his forceps and yanked it "out.  .Mr. Bowser's yells continued for three,  minutes and then died away, and in  ten wo wore homeward bound. He  was quiet and humble until we entered  the house, and then he turned to me  with:  "Mrs. Bowser, let this be an object  lesson to you."  "What do you moan?"  "Why, if ever you havo tho toothache again don't suffer a minute. Walk  right to a dentist and have it out and  over with and without any fuss, as 1  did." M. QUAD.  Rooky.

A forest reserve.is not an area rf  forest land whore no trees whatever  arc allowed to bo cut. The object in  setting aside the land for the reserve  is not to prohibit culling altogether  but rather to regulate the cutting and  ���������-'enerally to treat the lorcst so that a  continuous crop of timber may bo taken off the area, instead ot having it  cut over once or perhaps twice and  then left waste.  Experience in other lands has demonstrated that such a continuous crop  of forest trees can be grown, and the  setting aside oE forest reserves is one  oE the first steps taken in tho introduction of such a policy in this country. Crop after crop can be taken  off the same area���������of course at widely separated interval:*,, for half a century is a short -period, to allow for a  crop of 'timber to mature.  The primary object of a forest reserve is thus to provide for a perpetual supply of timber. Another  important object of the reserves is so  protect the water supply, both the  domestic supply for towns and cities  nnd also the supply to bo used for the  generation of power. The effect of  forests at the headwaters of streams  is to regulate the flow so as to make  it constant throughout the year���������not a  torrent in spring and a nearly dried-  up stream-bud in the heat of summer.  To bo valuable as a source of power  a stream must furnish a constant  and regular supply oE water. Very  low water in a stream from which a  town or city derives its water supply  has often meant a great deal of sickness, (perhaps in the form oE an epidemic), for the .people of that place.  Where the forest is, the snow melts  more gradually in the spring, and the  rains .of spring and summer soak into the ground, which .'nets like a  sponge, and-How-off'more gradually,  than where the forest is removed.  In hilly and inoiinlainous regions  the cutting off-of the forests has ojten  led to the washing away of the soil.  This has made it impossible for the  forests to grow 'again, and moreover  has led to the silting up ol the river**  in the valleys, which made necessary  the expenditure of large 'sums in  dredging them out again. Good ex-  ni u pi ns of this may be seen in the  neighborhood of tlio Appalachian  Mountains in the United States.  Some veservos arc important us  well in furnishing recreation for the  people, but the two essential objects  of the reserves, arc those of providing for a perpetual crop of timber  and of protecting the. water supply  for power and domestic use.

Tho   Gpectral   Horseman   That  Visit*  "     Wycollar Hall.  -   This gbostj story is contributed by a  correspondent of an English,magazine:  "Wycollar Ilall, near Colne, was long  the seat of the Cunllffos of Billlngtou.  They were noted persons in their time,  but evil days came, and their ancestral  'estates passed out of their hands.  Iu  the" days of the commonwealth their  loyalty cost'them dear,' and ultimately  they retired to Wycollar with a remnant only of their once extensive property.  About 1819 the last of the family passed away, and the hall is now a  mass of ruins.   Little but the anticjue  fireplace remains entire, and even the  ���������room   alluded   to   in   the   following  legend- cannot now be identified. ,Tradition  says  that once  every year a  specter horseman visits Wycollar Hall.  He Is attired iu the costume of tho  early Stuart period, and the trappings  of his,horse are of a most uncouth de-  ' scription. "���������" ��������� ...  "On the evening of- his visit the  weather is always wild and tempestuous. There - is no , moon to light tho  lonely roads.'and the residents of the  district do not venture out of their  cottages. Wheii the-wind howls loudest the horseman can be heard dashing up'the road at full speed, and, after crossing the' narrow bridge, he suddenly stops at the door of the hall.  T|je riders then dismounts and ma.ke3  his way up, the broad oaken stairs into  one of the rooms of the house. Dreadful screams, as..from a woman, are  then heard, which soon subside into  groans. The horseman then makes his  appearance at the door, at once mounts  Jils steed'and "gallops oft'.  "His body can be seen through by  those who may chance to be present;  his horse appears to lie wild with rage,  and Its nostrils stream with fire. The  tradition Is that one of the Cunllffes  murdered his wife in that room and  that the specter horseman Is the ghost  of the murderer, who is doomed to pay  an annual visit to the home of his  victim. She is said to"*have predicted  the extinction of the family, which,  according to the story, has been literally fulfilled."

Writing in Harper's Magazine, O.  'W. Furlong gives an account of I he  work of the Greek sponge divers off  the coast of Tripoli, in north Africa.

The great cause of this disease is (lie  sudden relief of pressure due to (he  -rapid ascent, the dangerous symptoms  appearing when the diver emerges into  the: fresh air.

FREAKS  OF  RAZORS.  The Way the Grain  of the Blades  Is  , Sometimes Reversed.  The finest grades of razors are so  delicate that even the famous Damascus sword  blades cannot equal  them  in texture.   It is not generally known  that the grain of a Swedish razor is so  ��������� sensitive that its general direction  is  changed after a short service.    When  you buy a.flue razor the grains run  from the upper end of the outer point  in a diagonal direction toward the handle.   Constant stropping will twist the  steel   until   the  grain   appears  to   be  straight up and down.   Subsequent use  will drag tho grain outward from the  edge, so that after steady use for several months the fiber of the steel occupies a position exactly the reverse of  that which it did on the day of purchase.    The -process  also affects  tho  temper of the  blade,  and whon  the  grain sets from the lower outer points  toward  the  back  you   have  a  razor  which cannot be kept in condition even  by the most conscientious barber.   But  hero's another curious freak that will  take place iu  the same tool:  If you  leave the razor alone for a -month or  two and take it up, you will find that  the grain has assumed its first position.  The operation can bo repeated until the  steel is worn through to the-back.���������  Strand Magazine.  ,he greatest'demand upon her blood  supply.

"There are many more good distance  runners now than in my days," said an  old time champion after watching a  three mile scratch race at the New  York Athletic club games. "But the  habits of the runners have not changed  any, for I noticed one Utile trick in  the race that bore the significance that  used to attach to it  "To the casual onlooker there was  nothing to choose between the two  leaders when they were beginning the  last quarter of a mile. Right from the  crack of the pistol they were running-  almost stride for stride with the low,  graceful, easy action of the real long  distance runner.  "Neither had called into use the reserve power which must be utilized in  the final sprint for victory when they  turned into the stretch for the final  lap. "Then one of them slightly turned  his head to see where the third 'man  was.  " 'That man Is beaten,' was the  thought which occurred to me at once,  and it proved true, as always, for when  the dash for the finish began he allow-  Led his rival to get a lead of five yards  before going after him in earnest pursuit.  "From that point-to the finish there  was no perceptible difference in the  speed of the men, but the man who  had turned his head to,makc sure that  he would get second place, instead of  bending every energy to win, of course  landed where his thoughts placed  him."

Combinations of capital for the purpose of extending  business, reducing expenses and  increasing profits are different from  the trust that operates in restraint  of trade. " By their fruits shall  ye know them" is an infallible test  by which legitimate corporations  or combinations of capital may be  distinguished from* illegitimate  trusts. If a trust crushes competition in order to oppress the people by raising prices it is an objectionable trust, but if it deftly combines capital and labor so as to  enlarge and improve its output and  thus benefits the whole community  it is worthy of support.���������St. Louis  Humorist.
