Advertising Neglected
(From the Winnipeg Commercial)
Here is the argument advanced
by many merchants in the smaller
towns. "Our advertising does not
pay and we just advertise to keep
up the local paper."
The very fact that the local
paper should be kept up is an in-
dieation that the paper is an actual
benefit to the town. A town without a local paper certainly lacks
something and a town with a good
local paper certainly has an asset
which thetown should be proud of-
and which the local merchants
could and should use to advantage.
Most any merchant who has a
sense of pride in the town in which
he lives and in which he conducts
his business would be willing to
pay to the local paper as much: as
five dollars a month just as a matter of support even if he carried no
ad at all. But the trouble is that
the average merchant looks on this
newspaper space as a donation and
simply means "any old thing" for
an ad. and changes his copy when
he happens to think of it.
The trouble lies here: The merchant neglects the advertising end
of the business entirely. Then,
after displaying the most absolute
disregard for this phase of his. business he insists that hisjadvertislng
does not pay. Suppose that the
merchant paid as little attention to
his customers as he does to his ads.
he would soon have no customers.
If your ads. are not read it is the
fault of your neglecting this important part of your business. If
a merchant admits that he does not
expect his ads. to pay how much
effort and energy is he going to
give to them.? The same old ad.
about the same old store, with
nothing new from week to week
and month to month, will indeed
never be read.

No Risk Whatever
He had risked his life to rescue
the fair maid from a watery grave
and of coarse her father was duly
grateful.
"Young man," he said, "I can
never thank yoa sufficiently for

awful risk in saving my only
daughter."
"None whatever, sir," replied
the amateur lifesaver. "I am already married."
Good for Ducks
Some time ago an Irishman pre
sented himself before a Liverpool
magistrate to seek advice.
"Sorr,', he said, "I kapes hens
in me cellar, but th' water pipes is
burst, an' me hens is all drowned.''
"Sorry I can't do anything for
you," said the magistrate; "you
had better apply to fehe water company."
A few dayB later Fat again appeared.
"Well, what now? What did
the water company tell you?"
queried the magistrate.
'They tonld me, ye honor, to
kape docks," wae the reply.
What money is in your pocket,
politeness is in your soul. Neither
may add to your real worth, but
both help in your dealings with
your fellows.
Every normal person wants
deference, consideration, smiles
and the appreciation from other
persons. "��� The only way to get
these things is to give them.
Smiles are bought with smile.,
and the price of kindness is kindness.
Five cents worth of affability
will get you more esteem than a
dollars worth of ability. I do not
say this as it should be; but it is as
it is.
To say that you do not care
what people think of you, usually
means that you prefer that they
think you rude, proud and uncivil;
and that you are so morally diseased that you enjoy the pain- that
this gives you, as a chronic dyspeptic enjoys the pain in his stomach.
Sane and healthy souls want to
be loved and admired. And this
end is attained only by politeness
and agreeableness.
"Even with virtue, ability and
irreproachable conduct says La
Brayere, "one can still be insupportable. Manners which one neglects as a slight thing, decides
after all what sort of an idea people are to have of you.''
The polite, agreeable person
owns the earth. He is the spiritual millionaire.���Dr. Frank Crane.

Solomon's Cynicism
A ten-year-old Philadelphian
was asked by his Sunday Bchool
teacher to write all he knew about
King Solomon, and to hand in his
paper the next Sunday. As per
instructions, the lad submitted the
following:
King Solomon was a great and a
wise man. He had one hundred
wives. After that he did not believe in God."
One Missing
The following story is credited
to Senator Sbafrotb, told while discussing the currency bill ,and its
misreading:
The superintendent of a Sunday
school repeated to the children the
text. "Arise, and take the young
child and flee into Egypt."
Then the superintendent showed
a large picture illustrating this
text in bright colors.
"Isn't the picture fine?" he said.
"Here is the mother. Here is the
young child. There's Egypt in
the distance. Isn't it fine?''
The children, however, looked disappointed, and finally a little boy
piped out: ���'.".-.:���

is not worth this effort is not to be

British Columbia fruit growing
districts claim particular attention
just at this time of the year when
the growing season is in its infancy.
How will the crops tarn out and
what of the markets? In the more
advanced sections of the province
the indications are that this is to
be a banner year in point of production, and, under organized and
co-operative efforts, it would appear that a solution of the marketing difficulties hitherto experienced
has been reached. The day when
the Canadian market for Washington and Oregon is past, and the
home grower finds that his brother
on the prairies and in the large
cities throughout the Dominion
gives the preference to the home
product whenever the grading is
at least, equal to that of the foreign competition.
-.GRICULTUEE, MINERAL AND TIMBER
As in the Okanagan Valley, the
remarkable success attained by its
fruit growing and agricultural industries have made the Kootenay
and Boundary countries famous the
world over. Confined within its
bounds there are great [areas of
mineral aed|timber wealth as well,
which together with superb climatic conditions throughout the year,
picturesqua scenery unequalled in
extent and magnificence, and, perhaps, more important than all, its
exceptional railroad facilities,
which bring the district nearer to
markets of the Middle West than
the growers south of the international boundary. High cost of
transportation is an obstacle which
is being surmounted, and though it
may, to a certain extent, have prevented distribution of all produce
on a profitable basis, it may at
least be said that it equally militated against importation. Thns, in
a measure, it .fiorded .home protection to the men who were doing
the pioneer work of building up
the principal centres of the coon-
try.
NETWORK  OF RAILROADS
Glorious panorama, containing
farm houses and cultivated ranches
are in the Boundary and Kootenay
districts. Natnre was in her happiest mood when she smiled upon
the luxurious environment of these
districts. But there is something
more than the scenic charm and
agricultural possibilities behind the
growth aod importance of this section of the country. With seven
working lines of three railroads in
operation, the opening of the Kettle
Valley line near at hand and the
Great Northern and C.P.E. connections between Grand Forks and
Princeton and Grand Forks and
Hope, the district is not only on
the eve for greater development
than it has hitherto enjoyed, but
will continue to hold iu an unmistakable way the premier position
on the railway map of the Kootenay and Boundary country,
With the completion of the Kettle
Valley line the coast cities will be
afforded direct communication with

Land is still plentiful, and to be
had at a figure nearer the financial
reach of the average man than in
some of the more advanced sections of the province. Nature's
gifts are lavishly dispensed. Apples, pears, plums, prunes, cherries
and all small fruits, as well as
vegetables, yield abundantly, but
profits are by no means confined to
fruit and vegetable production.
Far-sighted ranchers have favored
mixed farming as far as possible,
anyway, giving room for poultry
and hogs. At present the ranch is,
perhaps, the main centre of interest, but time will prove that the
great possibilities of the mining
camps in   the immediate vicinity
Fear
Fear is the most destructive
emotion that afflicts the human
mind. In epidemics of contagions
diseases it has been estimated that
four per cent die of fear. Through
fear impressions are often made on
the minds of children of so appalling a nature that they never recover from the shock.
Children have been shut in dark
rooms a few hours to punish them
for disobedience, and when liberated were found to be idiots,
Others have been frightened just
as a joke, which proved so serious
that they died instantly, in some
cases, and expired within a few
hours in others. Fear {causes the
sonl to shrink within itself and all
its sacred centres to grow dark aud
dead; while the auric emanations
take on au ashy gray or ghastly
color and quiver like a mass of
jelly.
What excuse can be given for
allowing sensitive children to
listen to Bill Sunday's sermons on
eternal damnation in a lake of fire
and brimstone?
To see lovely little girls from
six to ten years of age whose mimls
have never entertained a Binfal
thought, come marching down the
isle, with tears streaming from
will place the  Boundary country | feQeir eyes,  to take his hand and
among the leading mineral areas of
the Province. Well may thiB thriving district go ahead. Nothing
can hold it back from the success
it merits���the prosperity it is
bound to enjoy.���Victoria Colonist.
Mr. Harper was very much better. 80 Mrs. Harper allowed th_
nurse an evening off. As she herself was to keep a very important
engagement, she told Bridget to
watch the sick room and gave her
several orders which, she impressed
upon the Irish girl's mind, were
very important. .Returning later
than she intended, she h eard Mr.
Harper moving restlessly, and after
quieting him, she sought Bridget
for imformation.
"I wonder what makes Mr.
Harper so restless. He was Bleeping very soundly when I went out.
Do you know, Bridget?"
"No, mum," said the conscientious girl, "unless I disturbed his mind when I woke him np
to give him his sleepin' powder."
'seek salvation from imaginary
sins, as a result of having listened
to his terrible description of the
hell of esernal torment���is it not
an awful sight?
If he were to brand those beau-
eiful children on the cheek and
disfigure them for life, the audience wonld rise in vengance and
mob him. And yet the brand on
the cheek would pass away with
the body at death and the spirit
bear no soar when it reached the
other shore. But to Bhock the tender cortical cells of the brain with
those terrible descriptions of eternal torment, causing the fountains
of grief to well up, burst their
bankB and flow in torrents o'er
those lovely faces, leaves a scar on
the immortal sonl which will remain.- Ernest B. Lydick.

The reproducing point of
the new Edison Cylinder
Phonograph is a diamond
It was appropriate that when Mr. Edison was
seeking the utmost perfection in sound reproduction he should find that this power lay in
the diamond. He discovered it in the course of
more than 2,500 experiments, always looking toward
rarer sweetness, mellower,
stronger tone.
He has equipped every
new Edison Phonograph with
a diamond-point reproducer.
When this marvclously impervious tip rejts upon
the surface of the unbreakable Blue Amberol
Record, the heavier pressure can produce but
one result���wonderfully increased volume combined with rarer sweetness. Hear a Blue Amberol
at your Edison dealer's today.

LOWERY'S CLAIM.
During the 87 months that Lowery'e
Claim was on earth it did business all
over the world. It was the most
unique, independent and fearless journal ever produced in Canada. Political
and theological enemies pursued it with
the venom of a rattlesnake until the
government shut it out of the mails,
and its editor ceasad to publish it
partly on account of a lazy liver and
partly because it takes a pile of money
to run a paper that is outlawed. Ihere
are still 20 different editions of this condemned journal in print. Send 10 cents
and get one or J2 and get' the bunch,

The medical profession does not believe that lung troubles are Inherited,
but a person may inherit a weakness
or tendency to then-
Mrs. Kate Heck-nan, Springfield,
Ohio, says: "A few years ago I was
in a very bad run-down condition, and
the physician told me I had consumption. I tried another physician, and
he told me I had ulcers on my right
lung. I quit the physicians and
Btarted on "VinoL* Today I am
perfectly healthy, and that is why I

Vinol soothes and heals the inflamed surfaces and allays the cough,
Vinol creates an appetite, strengthens
the digestive organs and gives the
patient strength to throw off incipient pulmonary diseases.
Try a bottle ot Vinol with the understanding that your money will be

NUMBER ONE)
��
"I always take care of 'Number One." said one of a
troop of boys at the end of a bridge, some wanting to go
one way and some another.
"That's you out and out," cried one of his companions,
"You don't think or care about anyone but yourself, you
ought to be called Number One.
"If I dont take care >of Number One, who would, I
should like to know?''  cried he.
True, Number One was right. He ought to take care
of himself���good care.
"But does not that smack a little, of selfishness?' the
boys ask.    "Number One thinks of nobody but himself."
Nobody but himself! that certainly is selfish, and therefore wrong. Yet Number One is committed to our
own care. What sort of care is the all important question.
Take care of his habits. Make Number One industrious,
persevering,, self-denying and frugal. Give him plenty of
good healthy work to do, teach him how best to do it, and
keep him from lounging and all idle company.
Take care of the lips of Number One, I^et truth dwell
on them. Put a bridle on his mouth that no angry, backbiting tale shall come from it. Let no profane or impure
word escape. L,et the law of kindness rule his tongue and
all his conversation be such as becoming a child of God.
Take care of the affections and feelings of Number One.
Teach him to love God with all his heart and his neighbor
as himself; to care for others and share with others; to be
lowly in mind, forgiving, gentle, sympathizing, willing to
bear and forbear, easily entreated, doing good to all as he
has opportunity.
This is the care to take of Number One, and a rich blessing will he prove to his home and neighborhood, and himself. Boys! you all have Number One to take care of; and
a responsible charge it is.

Float is not a periodical.
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and
stories of western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flush days of
Sandon; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead; how a
parson took a drink at
" BearI.akein early~days7
how justice was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man outprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
warnings of a western
editor among the tender-
feet in the cent belt. It
contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine-
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Send for
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,

The installation of an air compressor at the Silver Hoard  mine
is now underway, according .0 information   furnished   by   W.   S.
Hawley,  who was   up   from fehe
Ainsworth   property on Monday.
"We   expect   to  have things in
shape by the end of the present
month," said Mr.  Hawley,   "and
with a compressor will of course
be in better shape to open up the
mine.    At the same time we are
putting in a] sawmill   to cut the
lumber   for our   mining   requirements.    The property   is looking
particularly good on the 200-foot
level."
It looks as if the federal officials were endeavoring feo find  an
After being shut down for nearly
two weeks the TJtica resumed
operations today on a_ small scale,
a small crew going up this morning. Only a few men can be
worked at present, as it is still an
impossibility to get freBh supplies

After a shut down of about a
month the "Whitewater has reopened this week with a small

John Keen came down from
Poplar on Monday. The latest
news from that camp, he says, is
the carrying on of prospecting
operations on the Calumet & Hecla
a gold proposition near Rapid
Creek. The Victoria syndicate
that has been securing properties
in thafe camp has an option on the
Calumet & Hecla.
The location of oil claims near
Arrowhead recals to mind that at
a point on Trout Lake oil seepages
have been noted from time to time
The tunnel on the Andrew claim,
near town, is now in 190 feet and
is following a sort of quartz vein
with mineral indications. Assays
have been obtained from spme of
the surface rock of $9 per ton gold
but the owners believe that when
the more solid formation is encountered it will develop into a
silver-lead proposition. It is being developed by a local syndicate
composed of Messrs. Perkins,
Timms and Ryan.���Kaslo Kooten-

War Realities
General Cronje, the old South
African war hero, shortly before
he died, referred to the deplorable
struggle as follows:
When the war broke out, I
went, as every Boer who was a
man went, and faced the foe that
was seeking to destroy the liberty
of my country. After many victories I was defeated and captured.
I never disgraced my cause or my
beloved nation by my surrender.
No man could have done better
than we did at Paaradeberg. ]
was sent by the British to St.
Helena, a prisoner. When I returned to the Transvaal, after the
conclusion of the war, I found
nothing bnt desolation and ruin.
My conntry was still black with
cinders and stained with blood
In the battle of Paardeberg my
wife was wounded as she fonght in
the trenches. That wound bled
out from my heart. I thought I
had felt the worst pain. Alas!
when I saw the scarred face of my
poor conntry, the wound in my
heart opened, and bled ont my
hope! I looked into my dear old
wife's care-worn face and then
across the mired veldt. I could
not hdpit.;^ I cried.
Since that day I have not been
able to stand straight. I was old
and weak, hungry, and homeless.
My children had all died in defense
of onr conntry. There we stood,
my wife and I, supporting each
other in onr misery. How lonely
we were! how much alonel I was
too old too fight again and strike
another blow for onr liberty- too
old to walk behind the plow���almost too old to lrve.
Vancouver harbor. If it is the intention to send them back to their
own country, why nofe do so at
once? The immigrants from Europe into Canada in the past eighteen years have not been as a rule,
the class of people who make a
nation. They are cheap wage
earners who leave their families in
Europe and send their earnings
home. When they have obtained
sufficient money to keep them .they
return to Italy, Austria, Greece,
and their places are filled here with
others who wish to make a stake,
Canada is simply being exploited to
make permanent homes ia Europe
for these people. Tho Chinese, the
Japs, the Hindus, are here for the
same purpose, and as a consequence millions of dollars are taken
out of circulation in this province
annually thafe should be spent in
making homes and supporting
families here. The railway companies are principally responsible
for tbis class of immigrants. When
their hundreds or two miles of
construction are completed the
immigrants engage in other work.
If they cannot get work in any
other way they buy a job from the
foreman, the superintendent or
manager of a concern, by a stipn
lated amount monthly returned to
fehe employer. The white man���
the home builder���is turned adrift
by the unscrupulous manager, superintendent or foreman feo make
room for the foreigner, In mining,
this system is responsible for the
majority of the failures, for in the
end it is the shareholder who is
the loser from the employment of
unskilled labor in the mines. These
people are a constant; menace to
the lives of men working in a large
mine. A short time ago, in one of
the largest "mines in the Slocan, a
white man had occasion to make
repairs in fehe inside of a shoot.
He told the car man on ^the level
above nofe to dump any ore in the
shoot nntirhe was [through with
the repairs. The man answered
yes, yes, as if he fully understood
instructions. A few minutes afterwards a car of ore came down the
shoot. Fortunately the man making the repairs'was out^of the shoot
at the time. The bohunk who
came nearlykkilling the white'man
is still employed at the mine, the
whiteman is not. | This is one of
the almost daily occurrences in the
mines in British" Columbia through
the employment of unskilled labor.
Occasionally a man is killed, frequently men are in j ured. In cases
of death the usual verdict is "ac
cidental." Had;;the man in the
shoot been killed, thej-ohunk on
top would have denied receiving
instructions, and the verdict would
have been "accidental death
through not giving instructions to
man on level above." The real
cause of many of the accidents in
our mines is the $5 or $10 a month
bribe given by the foreigner to the
man in charge.���Slocan Record.
A False Light.
Socialism is in the air.    It has
conquered the rankB of labor and
excuse for admitting the Hindus I permeated the schools of learning,
now being held on board ship in j and now ife marches on the erstwhile citadel of individualism, the
clear eved and - iron-hearted band
of  the great captal   of industry.
The brainy organizers of finance,
trade and manufacture, who have
denounced  trade  unionism    and
scoffed at the sentimental utterances of pulpit and fiction and pedagogue���these, at least, are tired of
competition, and have set themselves to kicking down the ladder
on which all achievement, rang by
rang, in pain and loss and strife,
has come np.
They may nofe succeed; bnt if
succeed they will fail, and in the
crash of that failure will go down
the most colossal ruin of human
history. One civilization after
another has failed, Egypt, Nineveh,
Babylon, Carthage, Greece, Rome,
and this great Teutonic-Celtic fabric of mechanical industry may
crumble to the duet as prone as
any. In fehe day thafe fehe competitive system is Jthrown away, onr
doom is sealed. Without incentive, ambition "will die away.
Without rivalry, exertion loses its
point. Without competition, improvement becomes needless and
impossible. Without straggle the
very faculties atrophy, nerve fails,
and muscles are enfeebled with
disuse.
When onr "harmonization." become complete, nobody will need
to build new railroads, or improve
facilities, or invent new machinery
or study economy, or reward exceptional fidelity or energy. We
shall fall to dead level of mediocrity, stagnation, and then decay.
The agencies that have built
us np will be destroyed, the props
will be withdrawn. The great machine will revolve awhile of its
own accumulated momentum, and
then it will stop. And npon the
ruins of what is left the survivors
will erect another system, still imperfect no donbt, bat purged of
this insidious error of Socialism.
Through some such dread experience as this we may have to pass,
for Nature will make her lessons
understood, afe whatever cost is necessary to those who would set her
afe defiance. The process of creation is not to be reversed because
some of fehe participants are tired
of the struggle.���Harvey Scott.
Granite Creek
Before the passage of the present
strict banking laws in Wisconsin,
starting a bank was a comparatively simple proposition. The
surprisingly small amount of capital needed is well illustrated by
the story a prosperous country
town banker told on himself, when
asked how he happened to enter
the banking business:
"Well," he said, "I didn't have
much else to do so I rented an
empty store bnilding and painted
BANK on the window. The first
day a man came in and deposited
a hundred dollars with me; the
second day another man dropped
in and depohited two hundred and
fifty; and so, by George, along
about the third day I got confidence enough in the bank to put in
a hundred myselfl" ���
Placer mining1 here is about on
a standstill, water on the creek
is yet keeping high and hindering work laid out for the Golden
Gate Syndicate. Manager R. A.
Lambert is waiting patiently
with part of his crew on the
claim. Patience being a virtue
that R. A. has exercised and we
all wish him a long, dry and successful season. Above Mr. Lambert on a bench are Messrs. Anderson and Gordon, two more
placer miners who have trouble
with seepage water at this time
of the year. "Hope deferred
maketh the heart sick," yet
through thick and thin these men
plod on with but little oncour-
agement for all the work thev
have done and certainly their's
would scare the ordinary mortal.
Success must finally be their portion. Above them on Newton
creek, Ja. Pollock, Robt McArthur and J. Stevenson are prospecting, and placer mining is interesting all of them. Gold,
platinum, diamonds, copper, and
silver lead ores too, what a variety this section contains for the
prospector, (who will say that
radium cannot be found here?)
On the morning of the 30th, at
2 a.m,, a man started an attempt
to enter the store here. He broke
the front window and extracted a
small axe from the inside and
was attempting to enter when
Miss Emily Cook startled him so
much by screaming, that he gave
a scream too and hit the window in the excitement aud ran'off.
His hat and a pair of wet slippers
were picked up just outside of the
window and later in the day the
small axe was found behind some
bushes. Constable Woolford arrested him at Coalmont in the
afternoon of the same day and
after a hearing before E. Waterman, J.P., at Pririceton, on Monday, he was1 committed to Kamloops for hearing at the assizes.
This store is also a Post Office
and less than two years ago it
was broken into and the cash
till robbed, the party caught, and
at a preliminary hearing the prisoner pleaded guilty, but when the
case came up at Kamloops it was
thrown out of court by the Grand
Jury.
From Nighthawk
Garry McBrand and John Gilles
have just completed development
work on claims recently located,
and have opened np a fine vein of
silver-lead ore, fully four feet wide.
Assays as high as $60 in gold and
silver' have been obtained, while
samples across the ledge run $47.
The strike has attracted the attention of mining men through the
country and the owners have received a number of flattering oflers
for the claims. They are negotiating with a British Columbia
mining and smelting company,
that wants to install a diamond
drill on fehe property. Besides
from fehe vein of high-grade ore that
has been opened there is an 8-foot
quartz ledge carrying a considerable
amount of lead, upon which a 30-
foot shaft has been sunk. Values
have increased wifeh depth. Ife is
on the ledge that the company desires to drill. The recent copper
strike in this camp ia adjoining
this claim, and ife is confidently expected thafe copper values will be
encountered at depth. If the company is successful in obtaining fehis
property much work will be done
in fehe camp, with the chance of
the biggest and best mineral showings ever made in this district this
summer. ��� ,

Charge the Enemy
General Basil Duke of Louisville
commander of Morgan's cavalry
following the death of his brother
in-law, General^ John Morgan, told
this story at a re-union of the ear
vivors of the battle of Shiloh.
He said that during one of the
Tennessee campaigns Morgan's
men surprised and drove back a
regiment of Federal troopers. In
the midst of the retreat one of tbe
enemy, who was mounted npon a
big bay horse, suddenly turned
and charged the Victorious Confederates full tilt waving his arm
and shrieking like mad as he bore
down npon them alone. Respecting Bnch marvelous courage, the
Confederates forbore shooting the
approaching foe, but when he was
right upon them they saw there
was a different reason for his fool-
hardiness.
He was a green recruit. His
horse had run away with him.
The bit had broken, and. white as
a sheet and scared stiff, the luckless youth was being propelled
straight at the whooping Kentuck-
ians, begging for mercy as he came.
Jeff Sterritfe. a noted wit of the
command stopped fehe horse and
made a willing prisoner of the
rider. Sterritt, who had no washed or shaved for days and was a
ferocious looking person, pulled
put a big pistol. "I don'l know
whether to kill yon right now," he
said, "or wait until fehe fight is
over."
"Mister," begged the quivering
captive, "don't do it at all. I'm a
dissipated character, and I ain't
prepared to die,"���Philadelphia
Evening Post.

One morning Bosie's teacher
noticed her hanging around the
desk,with a rather wistful expression.
"Well, Bosie, what is it?" she
finally asked, drawing the child feo
her.
"Please, teacher, we've got a
new baby t' our house."
"Oh, have you Bosie? Isn't
that fine? What's the baby's
name?"
"Ikie."
Several days later the teacher remembered to inquire about the
new arrival.
"Oh, Bosie, how is Ikie today?"
The child looked bewildered:
"Oh, teacher, we ain't got no
Ikie."
"Yes, You told me you had a
baby."
A gleam of intelligence appeared
on Bosie's face. "No, teacher, his
name's is Mose; his name ain't
Ikie. We found we already got
one Ikie."
