morning an auto containing eight

opposite Robt. Lee's ranch at

gave way. The occupants were
thrown helter-skelter down the
bank, but not one was hurt. The

The remains of the late Thos. G.

who metjwith, an .unfortunate .and,
fatal accident at the Jewel mine of
which mention was made in last
week's issue,'were laid at rest by
sorrowing relatives, brethern and
friends on Friday. The fnneral
was conducted by the Miners
Union, I. O. O. F. and the Eagles.
About 70 brother miners attended
in a body from which a choir of
40 voices sang in an impressive
manner, "Lead Kindly Light" at
fehe church aud "Nearer My God
To Thee" at the grave. The music
rendered from the voices of these
brother miners was such as to
soften all hearts and moisten all
eyes. Afe the church the services
were held by the Bev. J.R. Munro
who gave a brief and impressive
sermon.
The caskets were covered with
the most beautiful floral designs
loving fingers ever wrought, all of
which epofee of peace and immortality. At the close of the service an unusually large procession
followed the funeral car to our
silent city, where the I. O. O. F.
held services over fehe grave of
Bro. Alexander Jorden and the
Eagles over the grave of Bro.
Thomas Edwards.
As we stood beside their grave
when the sky was trimmed with
her gorgeous rosy hue, in fancy we
could see them���not in death's
cold shroud of sorrow and despair,
bnt smiling upon us from the sunset halo that marks God's farewell
to the day.

Enjoyable Time at Midway
A very enjoyable time was held
in Harrison's Hall, Midway, last
Friday when many from Greenwood, Rock Creek and surrounding country took advantage to
mingle with the hospitable people
of Midway at a social dance. The
dance was a huge success from
start to finish. Bush's four piece
orchestra supplied the music which
is of such a character that one
mast dance to the perfect time and
harmonious melodies. The chicken
supper served at Orowell's Hotel
was a great factor in making the
dance so enjoyable. With the congenial companionship of the fair
sex, the beautiful strains of waltzs
and two-steps and a good supper
made us think of bow true were
the words of W. E. Channing,
speaking of dancing, when he said:
"This exercise is among the
most health!aL ��� The body as-well
as the mind feels its gladdening
influence. No amusement seems
more to have a foundation in our
nature. The animation of youth
overflows spontaneously in harmonious movements. The true
idea of dancing entitles ife to favor.
Its end is to realize perfect grace
in motion and who does not know
that a Bense of the graceful ia one
of the higheet faculties of our
nature."
Midway is gaining notoriety for
its true hospitality and justly so.

Thinking Themes
There is no progress by precedes t
For this reason the development
of law is not that of growing youth,
but f_afe of an increasing dump-
heap.
The idea of human knowledge
advancing by constant aerations is
pure fiction.
The difficulty lies in that a good
wisdom of yesterday is folly today,
and what is called justice today is
looked upon as injustice tomorrow.
Progress is by revolution. That
is 6o say, ife is by harking back to
the eternal principles of truth and
-nature which human institutions
and precedents are constantly distorting.
Progress by precedent is like a
sailor steering his boat today by
his course yesterday, or like a lost
hunter guiding himself by his owu
footsteps; the result being, in both
cases, that the only progress is in
a circle.
The past has its use, which is
mostly for warning.
To get on, humanity must not
look to tlie past, to the present,
nor to ths future, but to truth
which is "the same yesterday, to'
day and forever."���Dr. Frank
Crane.
New Railway Lines,
Returning to Edmonton from
"Victoria, where he interviewed
high officials of the provincial government of British Columbia, J. C.
S^uarebrigga a pioneer of "the Peace
riwer country said today that the
Edmonton, Dun vegan and British
Columbia railway in Alberta-and
and fehe Pacific Great Eastern railr
way in the coast province, will be
operated by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company, as feeder
li nea for its transcontinental system.
The Edmonton, Dunvegan and
British Columbia line has laid steel
to the town of Sawride, 175 miles
northwest  of  Edmonton.

Railway, which is to be completed

a large proportion bordering on the
railroad, will be open to pre-emption in the valley of the South Fork
of the Fraser river in June, according to an announcement made by
by the Hon. W. R. Ross, minister
of lauds.
When the work of building the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was
begun this valley, which contains
a large amount of agricultural land
favorably situated, was placed in
reserve. In 1907 a reserve was
created under which a strip of Bix
miles covering the valley was reserved for the pre-emptor. Now
that the railway is completed the
agricultural lands are being opened
to the settler.
The land being opened to settlement is in two parts, "the eastern
half stretching on the other side of
McBride, the young city 90 miles
from the eastern border of the province, where a divisional point has
been created, car shops, large yards
etc., are being built, and a city is
iu its infancy. The western half
Btretches from Willow Station on
the G. T. P., not far east from
Fort George to join the other part
of the tract.
The lots in the eastern half will
be opened to entry by pre-emption
at McBride on June 1st at 9 a. m.,
a special office being opened there
by the Land Comissioner of the
district for one week in order to
give thoBe who seek a homestead
there an oppoatunity to file there
records at the nearest city to the
land, and after a week records will
be made at the office of the Govern
ment Agent for the District at Fort
George. The lots in the western
half will be opened to entry by pre
eruption on June 15th at 9 a.m. at
the office of the Government Agent
at Fort George.
McBride, where the lots in the
eastern half will be opened for a
week, beginning at 9 a.m. on June
1st., was the first townsite laid out
in the district, and the first post
office in the district was created
there. It is a bustling young town
and as it is in the heart of the
agricultural land, ia expected to
become a great centre. It is 145
miles from Fort George, 90 miles
Forestry Facts
At an average cost of less than
one cent per square mile, 15,203
square miles of Dominion Crown
timberlands in the NorthweHt were
examined last summer by forest
survey parties sent out by the Forestry Branch of the Dftpartment of
the Interior.
The Philippine Islands, which
are extremely heavily wooded, are
supposed to contain 200,000,000,000
feet, board measure, of timber.
This is about one-third the estimated timber value of Canada, not
including pulpwood, of which there
are approximately 400,000,000
cordB.
With the opening af the Panama
Canal, the development of the forest resources of the near-by tropical
countries should receive considerable stimulus. The wood of the
mangrove tree, which grows along
the low-lying coasts of British
Guiana and adjacent countries, is
said to be twice Jas strong as oak,
and when stood on end, will sustain without crushing a load of
eight tons to the square inch. It
iB Baid to be immune to decay
which, with its great strength,
makes it an ideal wood for railway ties.
Five thousand cords of poplar
are used annually in Canada for
the manufacture of excelsior, according to the statistics recently
gathered by the Dominion Forestry
Branch. The wood must be cleared of knots, peeled, and cut into
four foot lengths, to command the
highest price from the manufacturer. In Switzerland excelsior is
chiefly made from pine and fir and
is used largely for upholstering,
for it retains its elasticity longer
tha? hair and the small percentage
of resin in the wood is UBed to protect the furniture from moth?.
The Canadian product is used
chiefly for packing furniture, and
by usiug pine and spruce the present uses of excelsior might be extended.
In the little country of Denmark there are 230 pulp or paper
milk. In Canada, according to
the latest available statistics of the
Dominion Forestry Branch, there
are 48 pulp-mills in actual operation. The Canadian mills are,
however, many times larger than
those of Denmark.
Large game preserves have recently been Bet aside in Somali-
land, Unganda and other British
protectorates in Africa, in which
the hunting is prohibited of elephants, giraffes, rhinoceroses and
other valuable game in danger of
extinction. This policy has also
proved successful in perpetuating
the game supply on certain Dominion Forest Reserves in Western
Canada, and as occasion demands
the number of these game preserves
will be increased.
A Big Mine
Undoubtedly the most important
strike in the northwest in recent
years was made last week at the
United Copper mine, near Che-
welah, when tho long tunnel which
was begun fonr years ago encountered the vein 4,220 feet in from
the portal and giving a vertical
depth of close to 1,200 feet.
The latest report states that the
vein has been cut 31 feet wth a
30-inch streak of high grade ore
the same as that on the 400 and
600 foot levels which has been netting the company better than $50
per ton for the past IS months. It
is conservatively estimated that
the United Copper now has in
sight above the now tunnel level
an ore supply good for twenty
years.
The Chewelah Independent, in
its writenp of the strike, compliments Dick Thomas, the mining
engineer who made the survey, by
saying that the vein was 'encountered almost exactly at ^the point
designated by him. Tommy Ferguson of Republic, who had the
contract to run the tunnel, is credited with cutting the longest copper mining tunnel in the northwest in the shortest time at a profit
to both himself and the company.
The running of this tunnel represents an expenditure of over $60,-
000.

OUR HOME WOMEN
HAVE BEAUTIFUL HAIR
A Boston girl who was watching
a Sedgwick county farmer milk a
cow adjusted her glasses and said,
' 'It is all very plain except that I
don't understand how you turn it
Off-
Next time you go to the theatre or the
"movies" just notice, if you please, how
many of our home ladies have beautiful
hair���glossy, lustrous, aud well dressed.
Then, if you pick out five or ten of those
whose hair seems to be particularly
pretty and will ask them what they use
on it, we will feel sure that half ot them
will say "Harmony Hair Beautifier." It
is fast becoming the rage with both men
and women who are particular about the
appearance of their hair.
Sprinkle a little Harmony Hair Beautifier on your hair each time before brushing it. Contains no oil; will not change
color of hair, nor darken gray hair.
To keep hair and scalp dandruff free
and clean, use Harmony Shampoo. This
pure liquid shampoo gives an iustantan-
eous rich lather that immediately penetrates to every part of hair and scalp, insuring a quick thorough cleansing.
Washed off just as quickly, the entire
operation takes only a few moments.
Contains nothing that can harm the hair;
leaves no harshness or stickiness���just a
sweet cleanliness.
Both preparations come in odd-shaped,
very ornamental bottles, with sprinkler
tops. Harmony Hair Beautifier, $i.oo.
Harmony Shampoo, 50c. Both guaranteed to satisfy you in every way, or your
money back. Sold only at the more
than 7,000 Rexall Stores, and iu this
town only by us. J. I.. White, Druggist,

OUR BOYS
Yes, boys will be boys; and why should they not? Now,
a boy should go to school, but there is no particular pleasure in that, for fun he wants and fun. he will have. Your
boy should always be nice and clean; it makes him look
well, but even that does not satisfy his frisky nature. A
boy should go to meeting once or twice a week, but, good
as he is, he will crave for pleasure. We love a boy with
a merry twinkle in his eye; heleoks so cunning; and besides
he will need all the spirit of a young colt before he gets
through the world. If properly trained it will be to him
what steam is to an engine. Did it ever occur to you to
turn boy yourself and lay aside your serious dignified airs?
Try it, Play with them; laugh with them; talk with them;
sing with them; and when night comes, you can pray with
them with a result you little dreamed of. If they can
always have more pleasure with you than anybody else
you will always know where they are. Did you ever notice
how the older animals play with their young? It looks
funny you will admit. We have often laughed at an old
stifrVlegged horse playing with a colt, and what a queer
game of "tag" it was; the baby horse beat every time, but
the little one always kept clase to its mother, and was
neigh.   Parents, take a lesson and it will be   possible to
know where-the "wandering boys are tonight."
*    *    *
SELF RELIANCE.
Gibbon well and truly said, "Every person has two
educations���one which he receives from others, and one.
more important, which he gives himself," Help yourselves
and the Lord will help you, It is no use in these days to
sit around, and Micawbar like, wait for something to turn
up. You must take hold of the wheel of fortune and use
your muscle. It has wisely been said. "He who begins
with crutches will end with crutches,". It is said the lobster when left high and dry upon the land, has not energy
enough to work back into its element, but waits for the
sea to come to it, and if the sea fails, lays there and dies.
The world is full of human lobsters: young men who have
the ability, and the muscle, but are waiting for something
to turn up. The struggles of life produce self reliance.
Peril is the self school of education. Hi?, who battled with
poverty' and ill luck," will be f af stronger than he who i has
reveled in the lap of luxury. Read the biographies of the
world's great men, and you will find they started in
very humble circumstances. Abraham Lincoln, James
Garfield, and a score of others testify to this. Help yonr-.
self. Every man has all he can do to attend to his own
business. He has no time or inclination to, help you. If
you get mired by the wayside in life's struggle, pull the
harder and catch up with the maddening, hurrying crowd
in the bustle of life. Once out in the world's varying
scenes, you have to depend upon your own endeavors-
There are many things that bring out self reliance. The
canary sings the sweetest when its eyes are put out. The
flowers gives forth its full fragrance when crushed. It is
always the darkest with us before dawn. John Colhoun,
when at college, was laughed at by his schoolmates for his
untiring exertions. He replied, "I must, to be able to
be able to fulfill my position in the legislative hall of this
nation." There is no excuse for any young man of ordinary ability to sit down and mope over spilt milk. The
world is before you. Any young man with honesty, sobriety and industry can accomplish his highest ambition, . If
this article happens to strike a young man who is waiting
for something to turn up, may he awake to the realities of
this life.
MACON, Si, CHILD
Made Strong and Well by Vlnol
When we tell you that Vinol is the
best remedy in our "whole stock for
making weak, puny, ailing children
strong, robust and rosy we are only
telling you what has been, proved by
hundreds of mothers.
��� J. L. Fickling, Macon, Ga.. says:
"My child was very thin and deUcate,
no appetite, nervouB, and did not
sleep well. Doctors did not help her.
Vinol was recommended and tha
change after a fair trial was wonderful. She sleeps soundly all night, has
a splendid appetite and has gained in
weight I wish every mother knew
what Vinol will do for delicate children."
What Vinol did for this little girl
it Trill do for every weak and ailing
child because sickly children need
the strengthening cod liver elements
and the tonic Iron that Vinol contains���that is why Vlnol builds them
up quickly and gives them a fine,
healthy color. It is pleasant to take
aud we guarantee that the results will
satisfy you���money back if they do

Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is getting bad,
I'll try another ten-inch ad!"
If there be, go mark him well,
For him no bank account shall swell,
No angels watch the golden stair,
To welcome home the millionaire.
The man who never asks for trade,
By local line, or add displayed,
Cares more for rest tlwya worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep ������''
That nothing may disturb his sleep,, ;���
Where no rude clamor may dispel ;���:������
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise."

I   B. C. MINING NEWS   j
oooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Because the early spring mining
activity in Kootenay district iB becoming general some weeks before
the usual period, and on account
of the revival of the interest which
is being taken in the industry, the
prospects are that more new properties will be under development
in Kootenay and Boundary during
tbe coming spring and summer
than in any year in the past.
Snow has about disappeared from
the lower slopes of the mountains
and prospectors have commenced
to record claims. There is also a
revival in the placer mining industry in this section. Last year a
Philadelphia syndicate, headed by
C. H. Buschner, installed a dredge
in the Lardeau district, aud will
resume operations in the spring
with a larger plant. On Forty-
nine Creek, near Nelson, a flume
is being installed by a Nelson syndicate, and good returns are being
secured, it is said, by A. B. Bram-
mer and associates at Sheep Creek.
Vancouver and Victoria capitalists appear to be turning from real
estate to mining. B. "W. M. Hunter a Victoria engineer, has been
in Nelson to make arrangements
for development of the Fingree
mine near Nelson. J. Wilson, of
Victoria, is opening up the Topsy
mine, in Lardeau district, and A.
K. Stuart, another Victoria man,
has commenced operationsjin Lardeau. Preparations are being
made in the Slocan Star mill, which
has not been operated since the
property was owned by the present
company, which has been developing the famous mine with deep
level tunnels. The mill will be
running early in the spring, .it is
expected. Byron N. White of
Spokane, B. S. Lennie, of Vancouver, and A. C. Burdick, of Victoria,
are among the heavy stockholders
in the company.��� Rossland Miner.
Nigger Cabin, above Gold Basin,
where there are possibly half a
dozen claims, and further up the
stream near the mouth of Cottonwood creek up, on both aides of
the stream, and still further up
above that. The gold up there is
coarse and easily saved; the wash
is heavy, but that is the rule, and
placer miners need not expect to
get much gold without work, nor
to find ten dollar diggings on the
surface where the Chinese have
been at work, as they do the same
as other miners and work the
easiest ground.���Lillooet Prospector.
CITY COUNCIL
Wild Cats
As the spring is about here and
the prospector will soon be going
out to seek his fortune, it would
be a good thing if some of them
directed their attention in the direction of Cayoosh Creek .and its
mining pozsibilitiea���both in quartz
and placer.
It is well known that Chinese in
1885, took a lot of money out of
the creek; the late A. W. Smith,
who represented Lillooet in the
Provincial Legislature for a num
ber of years, stated repeatedly that
he had bought over $200,000 worth
of gold from the Chinese. This
simply represented gold exchange
for their needs, for goods, etc., and
from all accounts, they lived high.
Of course there is considerble
difficulty in locating ground on
bars that have not been worked, as
the high water effaces most signs of
work and it is only after working
that one finds that the ground has
been previously gone over, as results will show; but there is ground
on Cayoosh creek that is gold bearing above the high water mark
that has never been worked, and
some within ten miles of Lillooet
that is adjacent to old claims that
produced lots of gold���ground has
not been touched, or at most, but
a few pans have been tried. Bach
places are at the upper end of the
The following editorial on "Wild
Cats" appeared in the Victoria
Colonist:
The wild-cat is not yet extinct.
We are in receipt of a letter asking for advice as to the purchase
of shares in a so-called mining
company. We do not observe
anything untrue in the prospectus,
enclosed with the letter.
It is quite true that gold has
been found in the locality described
in the prospectus.
It is quite true that fortunes
were made in the Klondyke.
It is quite true that Le Boi
stock which once was sold at 10
cents a share, went up in a few
years to more than $4 a share.
It is quite true that there may
be other places as rich as those of
Klondyke, and other ore lodes as
rich as those of the Le Boi.
We should have supposed that
everybody knew these things.
We did not know that the advertising company intended going
into business in the locality mentioned until we saw the prospectus,
but have no reason to think it does
not intend to do so. May we ask
any sane man to say what in all
these facts justifies anyone In talking about the purchase of such
shares as an investment, especially
as the promoters state frankly that
the profits will come from the sale
of the shares at a higher price?
Here we have the case of a wild
cat of the most pronounced type.
On the face of the prospectus it
does not profess to be anything
else. If the purchaser of shares
in the company never sees a dollar come back, he cannot say that
he has been deceived. He is told
frankly that he need not expect to
make anything out of his shares unless someone will buy them from
him at an enhanced price. Of
course the prospectus does not
state the facts as badly as they are
stated here. A clever - writer amplified them and asked all who
read the prospectus why they did
not avail themselves of the opportunity offered. Our correspondent
said he has "invested" some
money in the shares and asked our
advice about "investing" more.
We have advised him personally
not to do so, and this article is
published for the purpose of pointing out to persons like our correspondent that they ought to be careful to read prospectus sent them.
Of course if a man chooses to send
his money to another man, whom
he does not know, to buy some
nicely printed certificates expect*
ing to find someone later take them
off his hands at a profit, that is his
own business. It is likewise his
own business if he chooses to
throw a $1 bill into the air on, say,
Monday and expects the wind the
next Saturday to blow him back a
$5 bill. Buying wild-cat shares is
not investing; it iB not speculation;
it is not even gambling; it is simply
playing the fool.

Rapid Transit
A prosecuting attorney of Kansas City fell on the steps in the
subway in New York. As he
went sliding down he saw that he
would strike a lady who was walking down the steps. Not wishing
to throw her forward he caught
her by the dress when he reached
her, pulling her back on his lap
and took her with him. When
they reached the bottom of the
steps not being able to get up while
the lady was on his lap, and she
not appearing disposed to move,
he said to her, "Madam, this is as
far as I go."
Odds and Ends
Gen. Frederick D. Grant said to
his servant one morning: ' 'James,
I have left my mess boots out.
I want them soled."
"Yes, sir," the servant answered.
The general," dressing for dinner
that night, said again:
"I Buppose, James, that you did
as I told you about those boots?"
James laid 35 cents on the
bureau.
"Yes, sir," said he, "and this is
all I could get for them, though
the corporal who bought 'em said
he'd have given half a dollar if
pay day had'iit been so far off."
He is a wise man who can discriminate between budding genius
and indigestion.

YOUR OWN DRUGGIST
BACKS THIS LAXATIVE
If you only knew as much'as we and
those who have used them do about Rexall Orderlies, you would be as enthusiastic about recommending them as we are.
They taste just like candy and act so
easily and pleasantly that taking them is
a pleasure.
Rexall Orderlies have a splendid tonic,
cleansing and strengthening effect upon
the bowels. They help free the system
and keep it free from the ailments that
result from irregular or inactive bowels.
They do this quietly, without griping,
nausea, purging or excessive looseness.
In a short time they usually make unnecessary the continued use of physics.
We don't ask you to take our word for
this. We want you to make us prove it,
and'at no cost to you.
Buy a box of Rexall Orderlies. If not
thoroughly satisfied, tell us, and we will
return your money without question. In
vest pocket tin boxes; 10c. 25c. 50.
You can buy Rexall Orderlies only at
The Rexall Stores, and in this town only
of us.   J. _.. White,  Druggist,  Green
