City Council
A regular meeting of the City
Council was held on Monday
evening ia the City Offices, Mayor
Gulley occupying the chair and
present. Aldermen Morrison,"
Taylor, Mowat, Kerr  and King.
Correspondence was quickly
deal with and the financial report approved.
The Water committee reported
in detail the handling of the.
water situation so that nearly all
householders were able, to obtain
water regularly and the few
���residents at each extreme end of
town were able to be supplied at
intervals. The protracted dry
spell has seriously depleted the
creeks and it has only been*hy
unremitting attention and manipulation of the various sources
of supply that service has been
maintained. A serious; break
was reported on a-main at the
north end of the system and
water is cut off there until repairs are effected.
Good progress is being made
on the work of replacing the
leaky wooden mains running
under Boundary creek and Gold
St. bridge with sections of iron
pipe and an immense saving of
water is expected to be the result of this expenditure.    .
The chairman of Streets committee _ advised delaying the installation of silent policemen until next spring and this view was
concurred in by the rest of the
Council.        -'.--������
Permission was granted the
superintendent of the Spotted
Horse mine to lay a pipe line
from Gold St. to the mine workings under the supervision of the
City Clerk.   -
, A case of indigent sickness was
dealt with and referred to a committee.
Repairs to the rink as reported
necessary by the building committee'were ordered to be proceeded with. _
A diversion of opinion re the
quaiity-:-of the .city water .,was
heard, but finaLly it was decided
to recommend that water f for
drinking purposes be . boiled.
This is purely a measure of precaution and not because of any
known contamination - in . the
water. ���-���        . .-. V "-. = .

making travel possible, thereby dissipating much of the ignorance and suspicion of oilier people and countries which prevailed.
The automobile is now futther developing and extending these benefits 1o
mankind. To a greater extent possibly than even the railway, the motor
car is bringing city aud country parts into closer touch and understanding.
Tiie average farmer of today is not isolated as was the case twenty years ago.
A day's journey to town by a horse-drawn vehicle is now a matter of only two
or three hours, with all that, this means in service of all kinds to the rural
And the city man and his family, who formerly spent their vacations going by rail to other cities, are now to au increasing extent every year making
use of their motor car to tour the country. Week-end trips to the country
are a popular pastime, and picnic parties away from the city i'or twenty, fifty,
one hundred miles to beauty spots in the country aro'of daily occurence.
The country thus reaps the advantages of the city, and the city is enabled to
enjoy and appreciate the counlry.

Will Urge Completion
Of Hudson  Bay  Road
Hon. W. R. Motherwell  Finds Reports

The four great natural resources of
the north country���minerals, -timber,
fish and fur���are enough in themselves
to warrant immediate completion of
flu- 1 Tudson's Bay Railway, Hon. W. R.
.Motherwell, Federal Minister of Agriculture, told a large gathering at Le
Pas, Man. He had jusl returned
from a trip to the end of steel at Mile
JtIL', Kettle Rapids.
"Atier my return from a trip of inspection over the Hudson's Bay Railway as far as the end of steel at Mile
382, Kettle Rapids, you will naturally
expect me lo tell you what my impression is of this vasi and very rich
couniry," said Mr. Motherwell. "Let
me first say this, withou'lot'ear of contradiction, the magnitude of your tremendously valuable, local industries,
minerals, limber, fit.li and furs, are
to' my mind, sullicient in themselves
to warrant the expenditure of the remaining necessary capital investment
of approximately'?6,000.000 to complete the Hudson's Bay Railway aud
put the port of Nelson into immediate
operation. I intend to go back and
tell niy colleagues at OttaAva just what
I have told you here, ancl you may rest
assured 1 will not knock the early
completion and operation of this route.
"This iias been my first: visit into
the country, tributary to Hudson's Bay,
and my ears have noi heen closed to
all that is going on, and 1 tell you I
will try and put the information so
gathered to good use. I am not-only
surprised, but inspired, by .the vigor
and resourcefulness of the people in
this counlry, aud that alone; I feel
certain, is a guarantee oT llie success1
of this great national uudertaking on
the part of all Canada.     V
"II is impossible for anyone  to go
through  this, extensive  country in a
private car and see from its windows
the great  potential  wealth  contained
therein, nevertheless, one can see the
unlimited possibilities.
"Now, in. regard to the roadbed of
lhe rail-way itself, and the criticism of
the eastern press,   stating   lhat   the
rails were.sunken ;ouf of sight in the

"Les" Booth Finally Got
Relief Through Taking
"Since taking Tanlac I fe.e-l so fit it
sometimes seems like a dream for
there was hardly a day in 20 years
that I did not suffer," is tho striking
statement of Geo L. ("Les") Booth,
271 Perth St., Brockville, Onf., one of
the best known farmers in Ontario.
"For 20 years, up lo three years ago
when 1 took Tanlac. I suffered _from
rheumatism in my arms, shoulders,
back and hips, so bad at-tlmes I could
not lift my arms to put my coat on. I
couldn't even  write my name and I
just limped about like a -cripple.
Many a ni��ht it looked like 1 would not
live to see daybreak and 'once I was
laid tip six months unable lo hit a lick
of work.
"Money could not buy the good Tanlac has done me. If ended every sign
of rheumatism and built up ray weight
1C pounds',' and since then 1 have not
had a rheumatic ache or pain. If
anybody wants to kuow about Tanlac,
just let them see Les Booth."
Tanlac is for s<sle by all good druggists. Accept no substitute. Over
40 Million bottles sold.

Chateau Lake Louise, recently burned, has been awarded lo Carter, Halls

addition provides for' an increase iu
the number of rooms and will be completed by June 1st, 1924, in lime for
next summer's tourist travel.
Missionaries motoring thiough Ton-

the word meant clothing iii;the Taga-

One Source Of Fire
Danger of Spontaneous Combustion If
Crop Is Housed When Damp
We know there are peoplo who seo', ��
ihe idea of spontaneous combustion.
Their odly idea is that fire cau start
only I'rom a match or from lightning,
and it is useless to talk about fire resulting when neither of these elements
are present. Those who have belief
that fire starts from such mysterious
origin as spontaneous combustion, and
that spontaneous combustion will result from wel or clamp material will
be careful in seeing that the crops aro
Jn fit condition before being garnered
In wet or catchy weather Ihe fanner becomes anxious and in spite ol'Jii$
belter judgment,- mav yield to lhe
temptation to put his crop in before
it ls really fit. Crop so boused should
be salted to minimize the danger from
overheating. Better lose part of the
crop through destruction by the wet
and catchy weather than lose the
whole crop and the barn .besides,
through fire resulting Trom it being
housed too soon. Part of our readers
may still be skeptical but the wiser
ones will take ..share in the warning.
Nothing cau be doue with those who
are too ignorant or too ^stubborn to
believe there is such a thing as spontaneous combustion. ���    -
A number of years ago we saw an
lee-house, full of ice and packed in the
usual way in sawdust. Moreover,, it
was built on a wharf aud accessible
to a whole' lake of water. If would be
impossible to set fire to such a place
by- ordinary mear's,.' yet we saw the
whole building consumed about noon
on a hot summer clay when nobody
had'been near to give it a start". Spontaneous combustion was the only-
theory by which^tbe fire could be accounted for.���From tho Durham

The Apple Is AW
Most Attractive Fruit
British Columbia .Apples Noted For
Their Intense Color
Tho beautiful coloring" of the B.C.
apples makes them specially attractive. The cause of color is not thoroughly understood, but it may _be said
tliat each variety of apple has* a color
peculiar to itself and it only requires
the proper conditions and chemical
changes to develop Iheni. It is well
known lhat sun'ight is an important
factor iu color development, helping
to intensify the coloring of the apple.
In warm dry seasons such as this has
been on the Pacific coast,-fruit matures earlier than ln wet seasons.
Where the fruit is permitted, to mature on the tieeu before it is harvested the higher and more beautiful lho
color will be. .
British Columbia apples are noted
for their intense color. In most districts the land is irrigated, and by-
stopping'irrigation ancl causing a ripening of the tree the fruit more thoroughly matures and partakes of the
rich colors which make (lie fruit of
B.C. notable.
There is a wide variety of ways in
which apples may be prepared for the
table and-there is no lack of practical
recipes-which are suitable for any
home or table in any'part of the country.

.half teaspoonful salt, two teaspponruls

:   Powers Of Death Ray
Matthews Says He Will Give Invention
���*��� To Britain
Once the "death ray" is perfected,
it would bring down a fleet of attacking aeroplanes in a charred and 1 wisted mass of wreckage, H. Grim'loll
Matthews, inventor of the supposedly
deatli dealing device, said in New York
as he sailed for England.
It will require eighteen months'
work and $250,000"o\pense to perfect
the ray beyond ii.s present limitation
of 6-1 feei, the inventor said.
Matthews said that since coming to
the United State.?, ho had been offered
a big 'price for his invention by another foreign "government, but would
stick to his determination to give if to
thc British ���Government.
"The British Isles are no longer Is-
lands.'with ���"the development of aeroplanes," lie.said.,:. "It Is iny purposo
to.perfect a defence in the death ray."

Eaton's Fall catalogues have recently been distributed, great loads
of them. The quantity delivered
here in a single week represents
more money than is expended in
other advertising schemes in a year.
This distribution has been kept np
for 20 years or more. Surely the
firm has found this expenditure
profitable, else it would have been
discontinued long ago. Ife iB estimated that one per cent of the trade
brought by these catalogues pays
the whole of the expense connected
with them. If we could keep this
trade at home it would be a wonderful help.

The end of the summer holidays
has come. The beginning of a vacation is a joyous time, and bo is
the end of it, and the great space
that lies between is a succession of
bumps and disappointments. Short
visits at Christmas or on week-ends
to exchange greetings with the companions of other days, to kiss our
women folk, and see the moonbeams in their ..eyes once more,
shake hands with our men folk and
say, "take care of yourself," are
all right. But two months of holidays are a weariness, a make believe and a pretence, a lazy time
full of bumps and disappointments.
This long stretch of- idlenesB. may
be all right for women and children
but for men there can never be any
fun in idleness. For a man ..who
.'can take his family to'7Europe;-on

the news came as a surprise to
many, the appointment of Dr. K.

WithJNonainafcion Day ��� :on September .17 and .Election Day set for a

will be . returned by acclamation.
The new minister has been prominent in his party for, twenty.ffive
years. He was first elected, to.the

is a man.of "affable nature, keen in

guides. The students who climbed and named the new
peaks in the famous Columbia ice field are Osgood Field,
Frederick Field and Le'mond Harris of Boston. ' They
were led by the noted Canadian Pacific Railway guide
Edward Fuez, the oldest guide in point of service in the
Canadian rockies. Two of the newly conquered peaks
have.been named Mount Harvard and Mount Hotchkiss
after the two American universities.
The party made five first ascents including the hitherto
unconquered Mount Patterson, 10,400 feet, Mount Sir
James Outram 10,700 feet, the South Twin, 10.60C feet'
and the-unnamed peaks, Havard and IJotchkiss. Besides
all this they discovered a new route to the top of the"
second highest peak in the Rockies, Mount Columbia,
12,000. feet, which was made in a return journey of
twenty-three hours. The aim of the exploring party, to
conquer the South-Twin, was successfully attained.
The Field-Harris party left Lake Louise five weeks ago
accompanied by two guides, five packers and nineteen
horses, and travelled 200 miles into the Columbia ice

field. Their progress was halted several times by the
terrific winds from the ice fields and once they were
forced to Tialt a day at Mistayah lake in order to make
rafts with which to get their horses across. Here, at the
foot of Mount Patterson, they put up a biyouac camp and
accompanied by the weird howling of the wild ice winds of
this district spent most of their night thrubbing a ukelele
and singing warm southern songs. _ '������
Lemonde Harris had his own Swiss guide with him,
Joseph Biner who has guided him for many years in the
Swiss Alps. Edward Fuez who has been guiding* in the
Canadian Rockies since 1903 was the man who successfully manouvered this valuable expedition. The greatest
novelty of the trip, he stated on his return, was the
meeting of fourteen American girls on the lonely forks of
the North Saskatchewan River, who were travelling alone
with their packers. The girls insisted, that the party stop
off for dinner with them that night, following which a
note of civilization was added to their wild northern
environment by the sound of the Ukelele and the swish
of dancing feet over pine needles dimly lighted by a
biasing log camp fire. ���    _
Following the conference of Bixty
timbermen with the government,
Hon. T. D. Pattullo,' minister of
lands, Faid''he was in sympathy
with the...timber interests and
agreed - that the new schedule
could hardly be made effective. Id
is exprcted that a bill will be
drown up for.the consideration of
thfl Legislature ��nd revisions will
be made in the Royaly Act.
Premier Oliver ia en route to Ottawa to attend the freight rates
hearing before the Boaid of Railway Commissioners on September
17. He will be assisted by G. G.
McGreer, K.O., as counsel, provided the case develops to the point
where argument by counsel is
deemed necessary. Mr. McGreer
will be in Ottawa anyway aa counsel for the fruit growers. The
Premier left here hopeful of securing farther reductions in rates, fov.
this province and said he was. determined to "fighttoa-finish,".
