.  No Football
Just what the young men of
Greenwood are going to do this
summer to keep  from becoming
dormant, from ennui, to keep the
body as well as the mind healthy
is haTd to say,-for there will be
no football, no lacrosse, no baseball no sport of any kind, due to
insufficient interest being manifested.   Several  meetings have
been called lately but  only two
or three enthusiasts attended, and
then as a last resort, those who
wanted to  play  were  asked to
give their names to any one of a
committee of three, but very few
responded to this request, Therefore the committee decided that
for lack of players, lack of support, lack of enthusiasm, Greenwood  would drop  out  of  the
league.     However to show the
good spirit that exists the very
few  enthusiasts  will  pay   the
league fee and will do all in their
power to  encourage the league
along.   It seems a great pity .to
be forced to take this stand especially since Greenwood was the
instigator   of football   in  the
Boundary; it was Greenwood that
induced Mr. Jackson  to donate
the cup; it was Greenwood that
called Grand Forks, Phoenix and
Mother Lode clubs together this
year, but, alas, we must now take
a back seat.

Two Immortal Notices
For years in fehe course of out-of-

for a companion ambiguous announcement to that immortal notice in the Fall River hotel which

down stairs for that purpose."

The Bull
T. P. O'Conner, the witty Irish
parliamentarian, discussed at a
dinner in New York the boll.
"The bull," said he, "isn't confined to Ireland. It was an Englishman you know, an English
judge, who, being told by a tramp
that he was unmarried, replied:
"Well, that's a good thing for
your wife."
"And it was an American politician sleeping in his tent, with a
stone jar for a pillow, replied, on
being asked if a jar wasn't hard:
'Oh, no; I've stuffed it yon see,
with hay.'"
"And ife was an American politician here in New York who cried
one night from tho tailboard of a
dray: 'If we remain silent* tbe
people will nofe hear our heartrending cries.'"

JUST a few days ago McKee Rankin died in San

Love is the core of religion, and

The following story is told of a
citizen of Atlantic City, proudly
named "Big Mike," who had for
years been earning a living, bronze
medals and undying gratitude, as
a life-saver:
Last summer a grand dame with
a wonderful top-dressing of blonde
wig, while venturing too far from
safety at a salt-water resort, was
caught by a big wave and the said
wig was washed from its moorings.
"Oh save my hair!" she yelled afe
Big Mike. "Can't you save my
hair?" "Excuse me, lady," replied Big Mike; "but I'm a life-
saver���nofe a hair restorer."
Bottomless Lake
A Jilted Jap Woman
A Japanese woman, when abandoned by her lover, takes a peculiar
and picturesque revenge. "When
she no longer has any doubt as to
his faithlessness, she gets up in the
middle of the night and puts on a
pleasing dress and wooden BandalB.
Attached to her head dress she
carries three lighted candles, and
suspended to her neck hangs a
small mirror. She takes in her
hand a small straw effigy of the
faithless one, and in her right hand
a hammer and nails. Walking
gravely to the sanctuary, she
selects one of the sacred trees and
nails the effigy securely to the
trunk. She then prays for the
death of the traitor, vowing that
if her wish is granted she will take
out the nails which trouble her
god, since they are fastened to *
a&cred tree. Night after night she
comes to the tree, adding one or
two nails, and repeating her prayers, persuaded that the god will
not hesitate to sacrifice the man to
save the tree.
In the heart of the snow-clad
Rockies, hundreds of miles west
of Edmonton, lies a lake whose
waters are always troubled, into
which a large river flows but oufe
of which there is no visible exife.
The leader of a forest survey party
sent out by the Dominion Forestry
Branch to examine the forests in
this wild region states that the
Indians shun this lake as the abode
of evil spirits, and, to give credence
to this superstition, from time to
time deep rumblings may be heard
where far below the surface the
water swirls throngh the hidden
outlet. The river that enters the
lake rushed from a subterranean
cave many miles down the valley,
the portal of which no man has
ever yet passed.   ,
Last summer the Dominion Forestry Branch sent eight survey
parties into the forests of the great
west, and the story of their experiences reads like fiction. One
party spent the summer in the
wild region of northern Manitoba;
three parties were in the hill country of Saskatchewan north of
Prince Albert; one party was in
the Rockies all summer; another
was cut off from civilization fo
several months in the low-lying
muskeg region of northern Alberta
near Lesser Slave Lake, and two
parties explored the remote up
land plateaus of the Railway Belt
in B.C. As one of the party chiefs
writes; "A forester needs to be
here, besides all other professional
titles, a real busbman, an axe-man
and a jumper."
The total area examined last
summer was 11,000,000 acres, yet
this is but one branch of the Dominion Forestry Branch's work of
segregating and securing, for tbe
proper nee of the present generation and posterity, the vast areas
of mature timber, young reproduction and fire-scarred brule lying
between the prairies and the barren
lands in the great north-west.

Worthy of the world s
best music
To most of us the chance to hear human playing
of good music comes infrequently. Only in the
great cities are the appetites of the music-hungry
satisfied. Even then one can hear but a small
part of all the worth while concerts.
Fortunately for those who love the masters of the past, and-who
have the judgment to recognize in present day composers the
masters of the future, there is the Edison
Phonograph. It is worthy of Wagner, of
Bach, of Puccini, The cleat, sweet tone,
remarkable in its purity, is simply a translation of human music into your own home.
Unless you have heard the newest Edisons,
��� you have no conception of their wonderful
mellow quality. You never realized that
such beauty could be applied to sound.
Ask your Edison dealer to play one of
the Blue Amberol Records���then you will
know that the whole world of good music
���past and present���is open to you.

Those are to be pitied who serve under him, and the excitable who serves is also a nuisance to the boss.    The excitable man is always using his gab such as it is.    He for/
gets what is often written, that the man who speaks  too
little is very rare.    The wise man's works are as  goads,
few and well ordered!   Every reader can  bear  testimony

for this weakness is honest thought. "Think twice before

too much and saying it too quickly.    The gun that  goes

tongue,   Speaking unadvisedly with his lips is a common
error, and as destructive to our peace and prosperity as it

The return of General Manager
W. J. Elmendorf of the Portland
Trapping in the Rockies
Canal  Tunnels,   Ltd.,   awakened
considerable interest in town
future operations by the company
as recently it was found expedient
to reduce the working force to some
extent, and this gave immediate
rise to the prospects of continuous
operations.   Mr. Elmendorf stated
to the Miner that he had been successful in securing all the funds
necessary for a continuation of the
work throughout the summer and
that   the   crew   will   shortly  be
brought back to its old strength of
some two dozen miners. As he had
not time at this writing to visit the
works he was unable to give any
particular   information   regarding
operations, beyond the statement
that some forty inches of ore had
been  encountered in one of the
drifts.   He  was  hopeful  that it
would nofe be very long before the
drift was in a good ore body,  and
with his return   at the camp the
policy of development will be outlined, following an examination of
the work since he last visited the
scene of operations,
Portland Canal Tunnels���The
latest news from Portland Canal
Tunnels reports the striking of
about 40 inches of good copper in
the Richard III claim, and those
who have seen it say it by far the
best showing so far encountered.
Ever since drifting on the mineralized zone was started, numerous
minor bodies of ore have carried
The following from Eod and
Gun is an account of Scott McRae's
trapping experience  near  Green-
values in silver and lead, with some
gold carried by the pyrite, and
and while perhaps nothing found
to date conld be mined at a profit,
it is safe to presume more extensions
or shutes must lie somewhere in
the near vicinity, and it ia expected that one of these will be exposed.
The facilities for stoping ore which
the low level tunnel will offer will
permit the working at a good profit
of a very moderate grade. In fact
if the veins already discovered are
found with more work to widen
out big things are to be expected.
Indian Mines��� Boy Clothes is
down from the Indian mine and
reports he has already established
temporary quarters in the place of
those destroyed by fire. Tents have
been erected, which will serve until the snow has gone. Work has
already been resumed in the upper
tunnel, the face of which is in
solid ore which, being decomposed,
permit, the tunnel to be continued
at a great pace, moat of the ground
being mined by the pick alone.
Yellowstone Group���Storty Seev-
enBon and Jack Hoveland are taking in supplies over the crust to do
until such time bb pack horses can
be taken through. A. crew of five
or six men will shortly by put to
work on the property.
Big Four Group��� B. Armstrong
and Louis WatkinB are taking in
supplies by dog team and intend
to continue the tunnel on this
group. The Big Four is one of the
most [promising prospects on the
Salmon Biver. It lies near Silver
Lake and is easy of access. A
thirty foot tunnel has been driven
in a big quartz vein which can be
traced right through the claims,
and which gives good ore values
and from which some samples of
free gold have been obtained.
Beach Claims���Charles Chalmer
and W, Fraser are now working
this property which is owned  by
G. W. Bruggy and H. C. Mage��
on a lease.   The group Is situated
right on salt water near Marmot
river and is one of the ideal locations in the district.   Over a ton
of ore which will run about $150
per ton has been sacked the past
week, and as this  can  be placed
directly on a scow without further
handling, will give a good profit.
The ore is rich in ruby and brittle
silver send has also a good percentage in lead.���Stewart Miner.
as to I wood:
"My partner came over to my
cabin one day in last December as
I was cooking my evening meal,
and asked me if I were ready to
hit the trail with him in the morning.   Having spent fehe preceding
three or four days at the cabin I
was only too pleased at the prospect of getting on the move again
so told him I would be ready at
daybreak   the   following morning
and would take my camera along
and two Airedale pups,   and we
would see what we could do.
Early in the morning we were off
and we struck our first trap at
about 12 o'clock. There wasn't
anything around there so we de
cided to sit down and eat our
lunch, which we washed down with
a little snow.
We then started out for trap
number two having the _ame luck,
or lack of luek there as at the first
one. On our way to our third
trap my partner said their was a
lynx's track in the trail and on
rounding a turn in the trail we
heard a hiss which told us our
luck had turned. We caught the
pups and I went up to let the
camera have a peep at him. The
dogs made so much noise that the
lynx attention was completely diverted by them which gave me a
good chance to secure the photo I
wished to get. Click went the
shutter and I had Mr. Lynx in my
keeping. Then we 'turned the
dogs loose. This being their first
lynx they thought he waB easy but
were not long in finding out their
mistake when they felt his claws.
They backed out for awhile to apparently discuss the best method of
finishing him, then suddenly one
jumped in and took a nip, then as
suddenly jumped back again when
the lynx tried to scratch the dog.
The other dog was too quick. He
saw the game and thought his turn
had come, Mr. Lynx soon found
that he was up against it although
he could catch hold of one of the
dogs whenever the opportunity presented itself. For two or three
minutes they played around, giving me another chance to snap the
shutter, and get picture number
two. The dogs were doing very
well indeed for their first lynx but
by this time they were getting a
little tired of barking and as they
had both received a considerable
number of bites and scratches they
decided it was about time to end
the affair. At all events th<��y
both sailed into Mr. Lynx just as
I snapped the shutter for the third
time and got a picture in which it
was difficult to distinguish dogs
from lynx. About one half minute after that and the dog succeeded in killing the lynx. Then
we pulled them of for fear they
would tear the hide. They were
pretty well scratched up bat had
enough    wind   remaining for an
other fight which they got at fehe
fifth trap, which brought to an end
the sport for that day.
Next morning we decided to
leave the dogs at the cabin and go
or a deer hunt. At daybreak we
were of to try our luck with the
rifles. Sure enough as we were
half a mile np from our cabin up
jumped a four pointer about three
hundred yards away. There was
a report and Mr. Buck doubled up,
having been shot through fehe
heart by a bullet fired from my
partners rifle. We went over and
I photographed him with the buck.
There was now one film remaining
and I took a photograph of my
partner and the dogs making off for
On this trip we were away eight
days in all and got a haul of five
lynx and two deer, for which
worked very hard.

Few people like to take physic, especially salts, because they are so disagreeable to take and because of the griping
and pains they cause. Rexall Orderlies
enable you to take less physic, aud all
without griping, purging or excessive
looseness. Salts and physics usually
Gnly give temporary relief and often
leave the bowels worse off than before.
Regal} Orderlies move the bowels
promptly, and soothe, tone and strengthen the intestinal muscles, leaving them
healthy and regular in action. They
taste like candy, and the movement they
cause is as easy and natural as though
your bowels were in perfect health and
you never bad to take any physic at all.
We have so much faith in Rexall Orderlies that we urge you to try them with
the understanding that, if they do not
satisfy you in every way, all "you have to
do is to get your money back is to tell us.
We honestly believe them to be the best
bowel remedy made. In vest pocket tin
boxes; ioc, 25c, 5oc.
You can buy Rexall Orderlies only at
The Rexall Stores, and in this town only
of us. J. I*. White, Druggist, Greenwood, B.C.

The mineral production for the province from 1852 to 1913 inclusive
shows an aggregate value of $460,137,000. The production of metals,
coal and coke in the Kootenay and Boundary districts of "British fCol-
umbla for the year 1913 amounted to the grand total of $20,629,315.
The following dividends were paid by some of the Kootenay-Boun-
dary mines during 1913: Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company, $SS9,901.90; Standard mine, CSilverton, $650,000; Hedley
Gold mine, $360,000; Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company,
$232,176; B.C. Copper Company, $88,675; Le Roi No. 2 $43,000. The
Granby company alone have paid since 1903 to 1913 inclusive dividends
to the extent of $5,376,004.20. It is safe to say that a considerable
portion of the profits of the Granby smelter at Grand Forks has been
invested in the new miqe and smelter at Hidden Creek. The same is
true of the B.C. Copper Co., Greenwood. While paying dividends they
have also expended a great deal of money in acquiring new properties
and developing same. The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., of
Trail has not, until the last few years, been paying dividends to any
extent, for the simple reason they have been using the profits in the
development of new properties, having large holdings in the Rossland
camp. For instance, they have the War Eagle, the old Le Roi, tbe
Centre Star, Iron Mask, Josie as well as the adjoining claims, the Molly
Gibson, on Kootenay Lake, the old Silver King at Nelson, the Sullivan
Group at Kimberley. Likewise in the Ainsworth camp and Slocan
district. '
It is pleasing to note that all these properties, such as the Le Roi,
Center Star, Silver King, Molly Gibson, the Sullivan and Ainsworth
camp properties were practically considered, from a public standpoint,
more or less*as played out mines. Today these properties are estimated
to be more valuable than ever and large producers for years to come.
This has been brought about by capable and economical management.);
. The wonderful optimism regarding mining mining prevailing during
1912 and 1913 in the Kootenay and Boundary districts, is, I feel confident, going to be thoroughly justified. The great Standard mine'in
Slocan only a few years ago was not tempting enough to keep attached
to it the men who are now foremost in the ownership. The old timer
the Silver King, is again to the fore, giving employment at the present
time to some 85 men. The Slocan Star, that has made many of its
original owners comfortable for life, is, with development of new found
ore bodies, likely to do the same for the present owners. The Molly
Gibson, Kootenay Lake, is another instance of what proper management will do. The early owners of this property were inexperienced
men with insufficient capital to develop properly, consequently it was
sold for a small amount. Today the old Molly Gibson is considered
one of the best silver lead properties in the country.
In the Ainsworth camp such mines as the Highland and the Silver
Hoard, the Maestro, the Banker, the old Bluebell, better than ever,
the Gallagher, and the Florence have all been steadily under development during 1913 and considerable ore was shipped.
The Ufcica mine has passed the stage of a prospect and is now one of
the coming silver lead properties in the Slocan. The U.S. in Jackson
Basin, near Kaslo, is also becoming a shipper. The Whitewater, the
Whitewater Deep and the Washington have been highly developed and
will renew shipments, and also many other properties in this .district
located on the K. & S. Railway, which is expected to be ready to handle
ores from these mines in May.
Properties around Trout Lake and Ferguson, in the Lardo, have
been receiving development, but not to the extent the properties warrant. It is a case of lack of capital. On the Slocan lake the great
producing Standard, tbe Hewitt, Vancouver, Rambler Cariboo, and
Ottawa are all shippers, and there are many others being developed.
Then we have the Sheep Creek and the Bayonne districts. In the
Sheep Creek district the Mother Lode and the Queen have proven very
profitable, especially the former. The owners, we understand, are trying to acquire further properties with a view to extending their holdings. In tbe Bayonne district, owing to lack of transportation facilities, no great extent of development, with the exception probably of
the Spokane group, has been ca.ried on this winter.
In the Ymir district the Second Relief, Wilcox, Yankee Girl and
many other properties are producing at the present time. In the Nelson district the B. C. Copper Company are developing the Victoria
property, making large shipments to their smelter at Greenwood; likewise with the Eureka. Such properties as the Perrier mine, a gold
property, tbe California and Venus are beinn developed. A few cases
only are cited, but a great many more are receiving the same attention.
Some are large properties and will being turning out immense tonnage
during the year 1914. Others have been worked on a smaller scale by
the owners themselves.
Then we have the undeveloped properties awaiting capital. These
are here in abundance. Take for instance the Bayonne camp. The
large and continuous veins have been opened up to a certain stage. It
is a camp of such dimensions that it requires large capital for the initial
development, as it is necessary to have power and mills. There are the
undeveloped mineral bodies of the great Lardo district, covering from
Kootenay lake to Ferguson. Also the Duncan river section; there is
the Lardeau district, reaching from the Arrow lakes, where tremendous bodies of all classes of ore awaits development, Also large, valuable bodies in East Kootenay and all through the interior, both in the
Kootenays and Boundary,
Considering the climate;- our mineral resources, which I think we
might say are among the best in the world; our transportation facilities,
considering the mountainous country; the abundance of timber and the
amount of water power going to waste, it is almost an appeal I am
making to those interested in this great industry. The past record of
British Columbia should not count against her. The losses sustained
were due, in many instances, to stock jobbing, impractical management, and a good deal of misplaced faith, as many of those who came
to British Columbia in the early days to mine had not the practical
experience, but did have control of tbe expenditures, and it was not a
question of mining with them as it was pleasure. Those days are past
and gone. We are now a settled community. Oar mining is conducted on a commercial basis.
I have no hesitation in saying that anyone who desires to invest in
mining, if they will have their engineers examine properties, and are
prepared to put up money for development purposes, can procure properties of great merit on a development basis, or lease and bond, at the
most reasonable terms. When we consumate the solution for our complex zinc and lead ores on a commercial basis, we venture to say that
there is no country in the world offering greater opportunities for securing the amount of returns on investments in the development of our
mineral bodies, which cover practically all well known metals, including the platinum group, molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, magnesium, and various earth metals, also large bodies of hematlie, specular
and magnetite iron. The quality and immense tonnage warrants the
buiding of reduction plants. With the increased demand for various
metals the necessity will call for further smelting facilities.
This resume of the mining industry and possibilities for investment
in same is made with a view of having it placed before those who may
be interested in the matter of investment. My position for many years
as president of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia has given me thorough knowledge of the possibilities of the vast
mineral values of the country generally.
I would be glad to extend to anyone making application full particulars regarding any class of our mineral wealth.
Yours respectfully,
Nelson, B.C., Canada}
