L. IU. McCarren Dead   -
St. Jude's ChurclTwas comfortably filled on Sunday night, Feb.
19th, when the local lodge of the
Knights of Pythias celebrated
the 58th anniversary by attending
Divine Service in a body. Rev.
E. A. St. G. Smyth delivered an
acceptable and appropriate
sermon taking for his text Gala-
tions 6 and 2. "Bear ye one
auothers burdens." He said that
fraternalism was a good thing
provided members lived up to its
teachings and not for what he
could get out of it. A. father
working for self alone or a
mother only thinking of self was
disastrous to to the home; but
where the father works for the
wife and the wife helps the
father then that unity becomes a
great blessing. The same might
be said of nations. When the
king works with his ministers for
the amelioration of the people
and the people try, to live up to
the laws then that uation is
bound to be great. So it is with
fraternal organizations where
men are bound together, to bear
one another's burdens, to relieve
suffering and distress aud to help
the needy and the sick. The
sermon was greatly appreciated
being simple, straight from the
shoulder and educative.

Representations made to this
Board concerning mail facilities
were taken up, and the pressure
brought to bear by the influence of
this Board on the Postal Authorities was such that the obsolete system of mail service to this town
was eliminated and a service in-
augerated equal to the neighboring
towns on the C P. R. line.
The question of closing the Customs Office, as proposed by the
Department at Ottawa, was also
taken up and vigorous protesting
from this Board resulted in our
Customs service being continued.
The last two mentioned matters
were referred to J. A.' MacKelvie,
the Federal member for this district, and the thanks of the Board
must be extended to him for the
manner ia-which he supported us
in our representations.
Matters pertaining to the mining
industry in this district have been
taken up with the Hon. Dr. Mac-
Lean and the Minister of Mines.
The principal subjects involved the
question of a settlement regarding
tbe making of the road to the Providence mine; aa appeal for more
funds for the construction of a
wagon road to the Yendella mine;
also an investigation re the stoppage of work in the Elkhorn Fr.
shaft by the creation of a dam ia

the Providence mine, which same it
is contended is of no use to the
Providence mine and a menace to
the working of the Elkhorn Fraction.
Reports on the above subjects
have been received and submitted
to the Board.
Appeals from various Boards of
Trade have been considered and
suitable endorsements and replies
thereto have been'forwarded after
consideration by this Board.
A decision to Improve the appearance of the Board rooms has not
met with tbe success I had hoped
for, but undoubtedly the time will
soon be here when the Board room
wiil be the centre meeting place of
the town. I wish to express to
this Board my appreciation of the
very able work carried on by the
Secretary, .and I think we have
been extremely fortunate in having
the services of one who has been so
well able to express the views of
this Board on the various subject
matters as directed by them. I
also wish to thank" the Executive
Council and all the Members of tha
Board for the attendance and
hearty support given daring tha

In the Prairie Provinces, Provincial Treasurers are badly handicapped
when it comes to increasing revenues as the instruments for so doing that

control of their natural resources, nor is there that accumulated .wealth in

substantial Provincial revenue. Ontario, for example, is reported to have

If you have lost very many teeth,
you must consider some method of replacing them, because if you don't you
will only partially chew your food and
your digestive apparatus will suffer
severely from overwork and your general system must necessarily be undernourished. '
So common sense dictates that when
yod lose a tooth, it must be replaced.
There are other good reasons why
teeth should be replaced but, just now,
the matter of plates is under discussion.
ln a jaw where there are some natural teeth remaining the plate that
carries' lhe missing teeth is called a
"partial plate."
There are many methods of keeping
these partial plates in position, and
the methods are so extremely clever
that the feelings, appearance and function ot the normal teeth are almost
restored. n
Tho old idea of placing* fixed
bridges, 16 restore every form of tooth
that was missing, is rapidly giving
way to the extensive use of the partial plate.
One of the great advantages of partial plate is tho fact that it can be removed aiid thoroughly cleaned.
Now, cleanliness is one of the
greatest possible measures in the con-
Canada Offers Advantages
Needs of Dominion for Increase in
Population is Shown
Sir Augustus M. Nanton, of Winnipeg, speaking at a Canadian gathering in London, said that one of Canada's greatest needs was an increase���
of population. He regretted there
was so little mutual trading between
Canada and the United Kingdom,
Canadian products, he said, came to
the British Isles in very meagre Quantifies.
The action of the United States in
increasing her tariff against Canada,
J said Sir Augustus, rendered the time
(never more opportune for Great Bri-
! tain to capture Canadian trade.
'    A    suggestion   .that* British manu-
j faclurors should establish themselves
: in    Canada   with branch plants from
which   to   handle   world   trade   was
made by Sir Augustus.     These plants
would give some of   Britain's   unemployed   population     work     in     the
healthiest climate, and this arrangement   would   to   some extent lighten
the drain on British coal.
It was an error, said the speaker,
to think that immigration would take
care of itself. He hoped that the
governments of both countries would
work together lo prevent the foreign
element in Canada increasing by an
undue percentage.
Sir Augustus said Canada ought to,
have adequate, representation in London, with the staff there properly
but the weight of the precious metal
and jewels alone, is reported to total j versatiou of health and anything that
can be cleaned can bo made sanitary;
but if you htne in your mouth an extensive lot of uncleanable apparatus
it will be very difficult to maintain a
hygienic condition.

cleanliness when any new work is be-

effected if a serious financial situation is not to become acute, and a still
stronger feeling ot irritation against the older Provinces develop because of
a sense of the injustice now suffered by the West.
Nothing startling iu the way of augmenting the revenue was considered'
in Saskatchewan; rather an attempt was forecasted of endeavoring to reduce
expenditures to the lowest possible point consistent with efficiency and
proper administration. The idea of imposing a Provincial income tax has
uot met with favor in Saskatchewan in view of the fact that it would nie'an a
triple income tax, such taxes being already levied by the Dominion and city
and  town  municipalities.
. A second outstanding problem wThich demanded attention at Eegina, and
is also to the fore in the Provinces to the east'and west, was the proper enforcement of the prohibitory liquor-laws. Demands were made on the Government to abandon the-present Saskatchewan Temperance.Act and to revert

I. The Syrian King Sorely Troubled
7     (vv. S-12).
1. The King's plan (v. 8). His
method was a kind of guerrilla warfare���-armed bands made incursions
into the enemy's territory. He. determined as to where camps should be
located so . as to intercept Israel's
army. His plan was clever, but his
great mistake was that he left God
out of his calculations. There is one
place where air plans and movements
are known (Heb. 4:13).
:2. The enemy's movements disclosed (v. 9). The man of God, knowing
the enemy's movements, 'was able to
tell the~7king about them. Elisha's
advice was more than a match for the
wily plans of the shrewd Benhadad.
Israel's safety lay more in the man
of God than in their warriors." '
'3. The king of Israel heeded Elisha's
word (v. 10). This was true wisdom
By obeying the prophet's words he
saved himself and army many times.
Those who are truly wise heed the
divine warnings.
4. The Syrian knig's perplexity (vv.
II, 12).. In his perplexity he assembled liis servants and demanded that
the traitor be made known. He believed that' some were playing into
the hands of the enemy; therefore
he would put an end to the treachery.
This was denied, and one of theser-'
vants declared that the king's movements w-ere reported by Elisha tlie
prophet, even telling to the king of
Israel what Ben-hadad spake in his
bedchamber. Ben-hadad was worried
not because of his sins, but because
his plans miscarried.'
II. The Syrian King Tries to Trap
/     Elisha (vv. 13-1S).
1. He sent an army to capture him
(vv. -13, 14). 7 Upon learning lhat
Elisha was making known his actions, he determined to put an end to
the matter by trapping him and making him a prisoner. How foolish to
put human cunning against divine
wisdom. ' Horses and chariots are
useless when God is against us. God's
purposes cannot' be thwarted. If
God be for us, who can be against us?
2. Eiisha's servant frightened (v.
15) . When he awoke one mornnig
he saw that an armed host was encamping about the city. Viewed from
the human standpoint, we do not wonder that he was affrighted.
.3. Elisha's encouragement (v. 16)-.-
Jle assured,his servant that, though
they were' surrounded by the Syrian
army, there was a mightier host
of .heavenly defenders "round, about
them." Elisha did not shut his eyes
to the real danger,, but looked to lhe.
helpers of God watching" about them.
4. Elisha's prayer (v, 17). He ask;

Dodd's Kidney Pills
Mr. Carl   Boutelier of   Mason's  Point
After   Four   Years   Suffering   Took
the  Advice  of a   Friend  and   Used
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Mason's Point, Heart of St. Margaret's Bay, N.S.���(Special).-���"When
I started to use Dodd's Kidney Pills I
was twenty-three years old and weighed 105 lbs. In one year I "gained 20
lbs." This is the statement of Mr.
Carl Boutelier, a well known and highly respected resident of this place. It
is one more addition to the great mass
of evidence that Dodd's Kidney Pills
are the greatest of all kidney remedies. ...     ��
"I was laid up '������ for four years -with
kidney trouble." Mr." Boutelier states
further: "One day a friend advised me
to use Dodd's Kidney' Pills and I
made up my mind to .give them a
trial.     I used .lust six boxes in all."
The. road to health lies through the
kidneys. If they are kept strong and
well all the impurities are strained
out of the blood. But if they are
weak and out'of order the impurities
stay in the blood and disease is' sure
to result.

Pills do not make strong healthy kidneys, -j

Anaconda Shavings
(By Spoke-Shave)
The Hard TimeB dance held
under the auspices of the Anaconda
Social Club on Friday night last,
may be boosted as one of the most
successful dancesof its kind ever
heldfjin Anaconda, thanks to the
tireless efforts of the various committees appointed in fulfilling their
arduous duties The number present totalled something near 130.
One of the most commendable and
gratifying feature was the exceedingly fraternaljeeliug that seemed
to rule all throughout the whole
evening. Everyone present appeared determined to make things
go. Hard Times attire was carried
out to perfection. Hay wire was
presented conspicuously as a lasting substitute for . braces, while
canvas costumes, wornout suits,
odd shoes, patches and overalls
were dressy in comparison with
some of the costumes. At mid'
night the picture of poverty disappeared and a swell supper was
ushered in, the eatables for which
were produced anywhere from
Eholt to Eock Creek. Music was
supplied by Mrs. T. Jenkin, Miss
A. Beattie, Messrs. S. Bombini, E.
Roylance, R. Folvik, J. Roylance,
D. McLaren and Geo. Clerf. Mr6.
M. Schamburg, of Spokane, Mrs
Hopkins, of Norwegian Creek, and
D. McLaren, of Deadwood were
the judges and their task was by
uo means easy owing to the keeuess
of competition. The prizes were
awarded to Miss Dolly Granberg,
(cup and saucer,) and J. Roylance
(safety razor.) . The prizes were
presented by tbe Club's president
B. F. Keir, who had no time to
make comment owing to the loud
manifestation of approval that
baulked all attempts. Anacondians
may be assured that their splendid
efforts in organizing the dance, and
at. entertaining their outside
patrons . will not be forgotten by
those who were present and that
those .same efforts will reap .. their
due reward at the next, public
dance the. club holds. Let it be
in the very near future...
It' was surely a Hard Time's
Dance, Hard .Time's prizes, . but
all must not.forget, a Hard Time's
price.     .'.,.
