The Yankee promoter came to
town in a special car. He told bis
admiring friends st the hotel that
he had just "pulled off a deal"
that bad netted him a million dollars. No, he didn't have the actual cash yet, but would have it
tomorrow. He had just sold seven
hundred thousand acres of land
and "fixed himself for life."
A week later the promoter was
intercepted while making a quiet
"get-away" from the hostelry.
He was a picture of dejection, bat
put on a brave front when asked
what had gone wrong.
"Didn't your deal go through
all right?" inquired a sypathizer.
"No. I slipped up on a couple
of technicalities, and that, too,
after I thought I had covered
every point."
"What were the technicalities?"
"Well, the fellow whobad -Jfej-iie
land couldn't make a clear title,
and the man who wanted to buy
i didn't have the money."

Owing to shortage of water,
connections are being made .to
pump a supply from Boundary
creek. Citizens should boil all
water used for drinking purposes
and waste none whatever on
lawns and so on. , This is important.
Owing to the extreme dry
weather it has been found necessary to employ a night watchman. Citizens should be extra
careful during this dry spell as a
spark or cigarette stubb might
cause serious loss. An ounce of
preventative is worth a pound of
cure.

The Rebekabs gave a hard
times party in their lodge-room
last Friday and all present spent
a most enjoyable eyening. On
account.of counter attractions the
attendance was not quite as large

the Kebekahs, noted for giving
good times, will give us more of
their enjoyable parties in the
near future.

Germans living in Canada. For
instance there is a veteran of the

for the present Kaiser. He is
proud of being a British subject.
On Monday night the people of
Mother Lode gave a farewell
dance, where a large and merry
crowd was present. Mrs. Oliver, pianist, and J. Sutherland,
violinist, furnished excellent and
inspiring %nusic. The dance was
kept up well until morning, everybody enjoying themselves so
thoroughly that they were reluctant to go.
The cosy home of Mr. and Mrs.
Wm. Phillips was the scene of a
gay time on Friday night, when
their daughter, Evangeline, entertained a few guests in honor
of her friend Miss Gibbon, who
has been visiting here for two
weeks. The evening was pleasantly spent in song, story and
cards. A nice supper was served
after which all repaired to their
various homes votingMissPhillips
an ideal hostess.
Last Friday night witnessed  a
most  enjoyable   smoker   at   the
Mother Lode mine when, in spite
of the fact that the mine had shut
down the night before,  it could
hardly be called a farewell smoker
as there was another entertainment to come, but as the  sportb
committee had $100 of undivided
capital, it might be more appropriately be called a "liquidation"
meeting.    O. Lachmund, general
manager in a short  address said
that the mine was to open  again
when there was a rise in the price
of copper.^ Songs were well rendered by Messrs; McKay,  Hand-
cock, Lakeland and the Austrian
quartette as well as Messrs. Winter, Burnell and Parker,   the  accompanying being skillfully performed by Mr. F. Marrirge.    J.

LADIES OF GREENWOOD!
At a meeting held in the Star
Theatre last week to consider ways
and means of helping during the
presrnt crisis the ladies proved
themselves eager and anxious to
raise patriotic funds to care for
those left behind and to assist the
Daughters of the Empire, who are
able to take the lead because they
are an organized body. Mrs. Coles,
Mrs. Rendell, Mrs. Marcon, Mrs.
Hopkins, Mrs. McCutcheon, Mrs.
Hobbin, Mrs. Foyle-Smith and
Mrs. F. W, McLaine are the
women organized and who are
working and planning with an
earnestness and devotion beyond
all praise and with a spirit which
is as inspiring as it is indomitable.
$200 has already been collected and
forwarded to the Daughters of the
Empire. The Women's Institute
subscribed $25.
When the war is over, when the
smoke of battle is cleared away,
when freedom has been re-established upon a broader and ever
broadening basis, when once more
we are able to resume the ordinary
avocations of life and in the time
of peace recount the incidents, of
war, there will not be a more constant theme of admiration than the
contribution of the Daughters of
the Empire to the greatest moral
and material victory which the
pages of history will record.

hope that the St. Catherines syndicate who are having a report made
by Jas. McEvoy, the: well known
Ontario geologist, will take hold of
the claims and develop them into a
producing mine.
/^The Dominion   of   Canada   in
its exhibition at the Panama-Pacific Exposition is to make  a  special feature of a very  interesting
and complete  mineral  collection
made up of ores  and  specimens
found in Canada.    In this exhibit
British Columbia,  it is needless
to add, will be in the lead.    With
the intention of making a  very
thorough and representative  collection of the ores  and  minerals
of this province,  Wm. Thomlin-
son,   well known in   connection
with the Provincial  Bureau   of
Mines, has been made official collector for the commission which
was appointed by  the Dominion
to have charge of this exhibit  as
well as the forestry and fisheries
exhibits.    In the course   of   his
duties Mr. Thomlinson has  completed an extensive  tour of the
northern and central parts of the
province and is now in  this district having spent Tuesday  and
Wednesday  visiting   the [Jewel
and other mines in the vicinity of
Greenwood and  left  here  today
for    Phoenix.    In    conversation
with the Ledge Mr. Thomlinson
pointed out that as every expense
was to be paid by the government
it remained in the hands of the
people of B. C. to make surejthat
they would be adequately^ represented.    Specimens should "always
be chosen and labeled with care,
details of their origin beingjfgiv-
en as well  as other  information
likely tojprove of value.    Speci-
may be of any size and should be
packed in. cases, not sacks as they
permit of too much movement,
and addressed C O.D. to the collecting warehouse at  324 Water
St. Vancouver, B.C.    We repeat
that all charges,  even   those   of
packing and local hauling, J will
be paid by the government.    The
collection,  is to be   continually
added to, will remain" the property of the government and.will be
exhibited on everyrpossible occasion.    That the greatest benefit
to the province will result ��� from
such advertising is obvious*and it
is up to Greenwood to do its   individual part towards making the
collect!on complete in~~every~~re^""'
spect.
The   statement   is    sometimes
made by the  uninitiated  that the
water-powers north of the settled
parts of our Dominion are of litte
value.    The existence of numerous
falls and rapids is not denied,   but
the argument is advanced that, the
temperature and   other   climatic
conditions   existing   where   these
fails and rapids are situated   will
prevent   their  utilization.   As  a
direct contradiction  of the above
assertion we need only to turn  to
Norway, the latitude of which  is
about the same as that of the Yukon, and where climatic conditions
are similar to those of northern
Canada.    In size, Norway is only
slightly larger than  our Maritime
Provinces, and yet we find there
power plants with a total capacity
of   over   1,500,000   horse-power,
either in actual operation,  or in
course of construction.    Hydro-electric stations of considerable size
have been constructed in different
parts of that country.    Many  of
the smaller ones have been erected
ior municipal use,  but the larger
ones are for the electro-chemical
industry, in which a main factor of
success is cheap and plentiful electric power.���L. G. D.

believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. It believes
in justice to everyone ; from the man who mucks in the mine to the
king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of
creation is the man who always pays the printer.

FROM THE TALMUD
He who loves his wife as himself
and honors her more than himself
will train his children properly; he
will meet too the fulfilment of the
verse: "And thou shalt know that
there is peace in thy tent, and thou
wilt look over thy habitation and
shall miss nothing."
Rabbi Jqse said: "I never call
my wife 'wife,' but 'home,' for she
indeed makes my home."
He who possesses a knowledge of
God and a knowledge of man will
not easily commit a sin.
The Bible was given us to establish peace.
He who wrongs his fellow men,
even in so small a coin as a penny,
is as wicked as if he should take
life.
He who raises his hand againBt
his fellow in a passion is a sinner.
Be not the friend of one who
wears the cloak of a saint to cover
the deformities of a fool.
In America several millions
of men are fighting the European war. The fighting is
principally from store counters and arm chairs, while
the weapons used are war
bulletins and ozone more or
Jess heated.
The other day a man with a
ruby nose was brought before a
magistrate charged with the crime
of impersonating a police officer.
"What have you to say?" asked
tbe magistrate.
"lam innocent," replied the
man.
"What did he do?" asked the
magistrate.
What did he do?" exclaimed the
policeman, hautily, who had hoped
that such a question would not be
put, "Why, he tapped three times
at the door of a 'pub' on my beat,
and when the landlord shoved the
beer out through the: half-closed
door he   took   it   and   drank   it.
That's what he did!"   Amid the
roars of laughter the case was dismissed.
These hunger strikes, doctor,"
inquired an "Answers" man of a
famous London physician, "are
they dangerous to life?''
"Ob, yes! ' said the doctor.
"They may be dangerous for a delicate woman, but incidentally they
cure a lot of troublesome ailments.
"Fasting relieves pain of almost
everjr kind. If you have a bad
toothache, refrain from food for 24
hours, and ten to one your toothache will vanish.
"Are you gouty or rheumatic?
Then the sovereign cure is a good
long fast.
"Paraylsis you probably think is
an incurable disease. No doubt
many forms are, bnt miraculous
recoveries have occurred under
treatment by fasting. Men who
had abandoned all hope, aud who
then tried fasting for thirty, forty,
and even fifty days, had the use
of their limbs completely restored.
"How doe3 this, happen? My
theory is that certain waste matters, poisoning< the nerves, are
often the cause of this disease, and
by a prolonged fast these are removed.
"I have known a patient suffer
for years from chronic catarrh of
the nose and air passages. No
doctor could cure the trouble, but
a twenty days' fast completely
cured ib in this instance.
"That fasting should cure stomach and liver trouble seems natural. But how many of us make
use of the remedy? Next time you
are bilious or have bad indigestion
try the remedy of abstinence from
food, aud you won't be disappointed.
Deafness, resulting from catarrh
of the air passages, is another matter. You would scarcely try fasting to cure it, But I have known
the hearing of such a person to be
completely cured by a seventeen-
day fast.
"If a man feels dull, heavy and
stupid, nothing can cure him like a
fast.
"Here are a dozen cases in one���
a real example of the marvelous
virtues of fasting. A patient suffered all at the same time with
rheumatism, kidney disease, ex-
cema, loss of power in the limbs
and several other affections.
"He sampled half the drugs in
the pharmacopoeia, and then, in
despair, tried a long fast. In forty
days he was perfectly cured of
every trouble.
"In reality we are only obeying
Nature when we fast to cure diseases. What course do all animals
follow when ill? They drink a
great deal, but, as a rule, they eat
nothing. This measure, combined
with rest and sleep, is usually successful.
"Of course, no sensible person
will undertake a long fast of ten
days and upward without medical
supervision. Unless properly conducted ib might wreck even an apparently strong man.
How is fehe fast to be carried
out? There are many ways. One
is to omit breakfast for a week,
and then live on one meal a day
until cured.
"Another is to fast two or three
days, then eat a couple of light
meals���milk, rice, etc.���and then
fast again,
"Nature will tell you when to
end the treatment. The tongue
clears, the spirits become buoyant,
and the appetite becomes ravenous.
"You may, of course, while fasting drink as much water, lemonade, etc., as you like, and may
also eat juicy fruits, such as oranges and grapes."
"The Lost Art of Behaving
Well" refers to a manual of be-
navior which in 1S03 had run into
a third edition.    The author was a
cler.
:yman  named   Truslar.    Am
ong his directions was a series addressed to the guest, who was admonished not to smell viands on
bho fork before eating them, nor to
"eat" his soup with his nose in
fehe plate; "eating quick or very
slow at meals" moreover is characteristic cf the vulgar; "the first
suggests that you are starving; the
second that you do not like the food
set- before you." He avers that it
is exceedingly rudo to spit, eat
greedily, pick your teeth before the
dishes are removed."

Although only a month married,
the young man had learned much
feminine logic. Tired out with a
day in the shops, his wife opened
her eyes languidly as he struck a
match. "Another?" she said.
"Mortimer, I do wish you would
not use cigarettes.,, "Why?"
"Because tboy are bad for you.
You don't know what is in them."
"Ob yes, I do. Why, for the trifling sum that cigarette costs, you
get nicotine, valerian, possibly a
little morphine and any quantity
of carbon." She sat up alert and
bright-eyed. "Good gracious,"
she said. "All that? Why, that
is a real bargain, isn't it?"
The active head of a great law
school says tbis country needs fewer and better lawyers.
In other words, this country
needs fewer and wiser clients.

Mrs. Muriel took great interest
parish affairs. Last year she promised to assist in decorating the
parish church. One illuminated
text, she thought would look well
over the chancel screen, and requested her husband to bring it
from town. As might have been
expected, ho forgot the text, and
wired to his wife for particulars.
To the surprise of all the telegraph

The time to have the brightest lamps lit, the . hottest
supper ready, to wear the gayest dresses and hunt up the
funniest stories in one's memory, is the cold rainy night,
when there will not be any company, but when the homecoming husband, sons, and brothers will doubly enjoy  the
cheer.
* *     *
The father who is "chummy" with his boy, gets down
to that eager, inquiring, restless little soul and explains
and encourages, does not need to cut. a birch gad in order
to maintain discipline; and the mother who sympathizes,
cuddles and plays with her children can keep her slippers
on her feet and her hairbrush on the dressing table.
Children need love and sympathy as much as flowers  need
air and sunshine.
* *     #
The best way to keep the boys at home is to make it an
object for them not to go out to seek amusements, for these
they will have. Every farm home ought to be made a very
heaven on earth to its inmates. Not alone the farm home
either, but all the houses in the land. Learn each child's
nature, and then work some home charm to   keep  him in
your circle.
* *     *
' 'Time has scattered the snowy flakes on her brow,
plowed furrows in her cheeks���but is she not sweet and
beautiful now? The lips which have kissed many tears
from the childish cheeks are the sweetest lips in all the
world. The eye is dim, yet it glows with rapt radiance
of a holy love which can never fade. Oh, yes, she is a
dear old mother. Her sands of time are nearly run out,
feeble as she is she will go farther and reachr lower
down for you than will any other on earth, You cannot
walk into midnight where she cannot see you; you cannot
enter a prison whose bars shall keep her out; you cannot
mount a scaffold too high for her to reach and bless you.
In evidence of her deathless love, when the world shall
despise and forsake you���when it leaves you by the wayside to die unnoticed���the dear old mother will gather you
up in her feeble arms, carry vou home and tellyou of your
virtues until you almost forget that your soul is disfigured
by vices. Love her tenderly and cheer her declining years
with holy devotion.
.**������#
If you want to keep your children away from sin you
can only do so by making their home attractive. You can
preach sermons advocate reforms and denounce wickedness
and yet your children will be captivated by the glittering
saloons of sin, unless you make your home brighter than
any other place on earth to them. Gather all the charms
you possibly can into your house. If you can afford it,
bring books and pictures and cheerful entertainments to
the household. But above all, teach those children not by
half an hour, twice a year on the Sabbath day, but day
after day, and every day teach them that religion is a
great gladness, that it throws chains of gold about the
neck, that it takes no spring from the foot, no blithness
from the heart, no sparkle from the eye, no ring from the
laughter, but that "her ways are ways of pleasantness and
all her paths are peace.

From 700 to 800 acres of land have
been bought on which to pnt np
buildings to be used in the redaction ofjore.
A body of ore rich in galena and
carrying high values in silver and
lead has been discovered on the
north side of i] Constance Cove, Ea-
quimalt harbor. The ground has
been'staked and 'recorded. Lead
can be traced for a distance of
1500 feet. The land on which the
location has been made is said to
belong to the Hudson Bay Co. and
is close to tide water.
World's Largest Banks
They are getting a lot of high-
grade ore on the four hundred foot
level at the Silver Standard mine.
Steady improvement has lately
been the reward of this work, and
the present showings are very favorable for a large body qf pay ore
near at hand. It is expected that
the work will run into No. 1 vein
this week. They are now encountering ore in fehe seams, which iB a
good indication that there is the
large body of ore that the owners
have been expecting near at hand.
Last month's work shows that over
two hundred feet of tunnel, 5 x 7,
has been driven and by five
machine men. This is looked on
as very good work as the rock lies.
McCrimmon & Stewart, lessees of
several claimB of the Silver Standard property are sinking a Bhaft on
Black Biver. They had to put in
a syphon to relieve the workings of
water flowing in from the excessive
rains. The boys have' taken out
quite a lot of ore and such as they
have mined is quite up to the uniform high quality of stuff previous*
ly extracted from Glen mountain.

Frank Brown has just returned
from Bob creek, six miles from
Houston on the G.T.P. railway,
where he and J. T. Dravenstott
were the second locators on the
new gold strike���Soper and All-
port being the original locators.
Chinamen are' now placer mining
on Bob creek, and above their
placer ground is a porphyry dyke
seven or eight hundred feet wide,
which carries free milling gold
values for ite entire length, and
looks like a big steam shovel proposition. Mr. Brown will return
to Bob creek at once and will cross-
cut and sample the dyke thoroughly. While away he visited his
holdings at Owen's Lake, and
states that be expects to do considerable work there this year. Speaking of the new Btrike near Tellkwa
he says that it looks very promising and that the ore is high grade
chalcopyrite. TheChisholm boys
are shipping ore from their proper-
to the Trail smelter.���The Chalcopyrite.
D. J. Galloway, assistant provincial minerologist, finished his
labors in our district and went to
Hazelton last Wednesday. During his ten-day stay here he examined the Bocher de Boule, Bed
Hose and Brian Bora basinB, and
his work has evidently been very
thorough and complete^-The

If the war prevails a market is assured. When it is all over Canada

That is a plain way to look at the
possibilities.

What Effect will it Have.
That is the question men are
asking so far as Canada is concerned. As to the effect the war will
have.    Will Canada benefit or not?
Undoubtedly it will precipitate
a marked financial stringency so
far as the money which we borrow
to carry on our national and provincial works and operations. And
all the enterprises depending on
foreign capital will feel a pinch.
Of that new loan guaranteed as it
is by the Dominion, the [Canadian
Northern have had subscribed only
about one-fifth of the required
amount.
Probably Canada will benefit.
Russia will conserve her wheat
crop to feed her troops in the field,
and the crop may suffer from a
scarcity of labor. Europe bent on
fighting will be forced to depend on
the American continent for a
wheat supply. There is a possibility that wheat may advance to a
price never heard of on this side of
the globe. Two dollar wheat
would enrich the North West farmer, for in time of war wheat is
paid for promptly. If the prairie
farmer has a good crop he will be
on easy street.
The fisheries will feel the influence, for they constitute a notable
source of supply of food. Thousands of men who now encumber the
labor markets will be drawn from
this land and leave the ranks of the
unemployed so many less.
While money in large amounts
may be difficult to find there will
be enough to keep things   moving.
People are asking this question:
Why should Britain be drawn into
a war, and to which, as a party,
without ostensible object? The folio ay assist to make the matter
plain.
The Triple Alliance is a compact entered into between Germany,
Austria aud Italy against Russia.
It was formerly the Dual Alliance
entered into in 1S79, when Germany and Austria pledged themselves to joint action should either
be assailed by Russia and to neutrality should either be assailed by
auother power. In 1SS3 Italy was
admitted into the Dual Alliance
and it became the Triple Alliance.
Tho treaty provides that should
Russia assist any nation at war
with any of tho signatories to the
treaty the other signatories must
come to assistance. The treaty is
very specific in its terms and provides for a division of all territory
acquired at a victorious war. Under the treaty the Triple Alliance
must back Austria should Russia
come to the assistance of Servia.
In addition to the Triple Alliance
powers, Bulgaria, for Balkan political reasoup, will support Austria.
The Triple Entente is the offset
to the Triple Alliance. It embraces
Russia, France and Britain. The
details of the Triple Entente have
never been made public, but it is
accepted as certain that France and
Russia are bound absolutely in an
offensive and defensive alliance.
���Just how firmly Britain is bound
is not known. Spain has become
a party to this agreement, but to
what extent is conjectural. For
Balkan reasons Greece and Romania will support Servia as
against Austria. Russia's support
of Servia is part of the Pan-Slavic
programme as against the Pan
Germanic expansion plans.
"These kids I teach aren't a bit

" 'A lawyer,' said the smallest

The reason why women do not

the fact that they want to have the
last word.

year to have the habit of looking
on the bright side of things.

out of Eholt Creek, which flows southwest and drains into Boundary Creek
about 7 miles south-west.
The water will be diverted from the
stream at a point about 300 feet from
corner of lot 1223 and will be used for
domestic purpose upon the pre-emption
