is located at Greenwood, B. C, and can be traced to many parts of
the earth. It comes to the front every Thursday morning, and
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.

Oil has been found in

Being careless with matches and lights has caused

No live town has ever been

People who stay on the
land will never be drowned

Quit chasing the golden
dump at the end of the rainbow, and develop the resources that nature has
placed within sight of your
own eyes.
Many business men in the
Boundary are always kicking
about the bohunks for send
ing their money out of the
country. And yet, many of
these so called business men
are doing the same thing.
They are sending money
afar off to support other
towns instead of buying from
their own local industries.
Instead of putting their
earnings into developing the
resources of their own districts, they are continually
investing in wild-cat stocks
and real estate at a long distance. Little wonder that
you seldom find a dollar on
the streets, when such a condition of affairs exists in one
of the richest parts of this
great Dominion of Canada.

Mexico produces more oil
than it can sell. Last year
25,000,000 million barrels
were exported, principally
to the United States. One
well can flow steadily 110,-
000 thousand barrels a day.
Oil is worth 55 cents a barrel in Mexico, and oil lands
sell for from $50 to $200 an
acre.
Thinking Themes
We do not hate the one that
tempts us to do wrong, we often
love him; we hate the one who
tries to make us do better.
The boy loves Huckleberry Fin
who entices him to idleness and
loosenes_; he hates the teacher
who keeps him at his useful tasks,
and the goody-goody girl who tells
him he mustn' c do this or that.
The church often elevated to
power those who did their utmost
to degrade it, and persecuted those
who sought to purify it.
No historic hate is much keener
than the hate of the cavalier for a
round-head wanted to improve the
cavalier's morals.
A woman pities her fallen sister,
seeks to aid her, and even organizes movements for assistance; but
for those other women, they who
profess to be more virtuous, they
have only resentment.
Church members do not hate
slum people; but the latter usually
speaks bitter of the former.
The antagonism of the race is
against those who would reform it.
So the way we have of pretending to be worse than we are, and
putting our worse foot forward, is
really a bid for love; for we feel
that people will be inclined to like
us in proportion as they feel superior to us. And anyone who approaches men with an I-am-holier-
than-you carries a chip on hiB
shoulder.
The only goodness that wins
love, that really conqners men
and not repels them, is the goodness that is concealed as much as
possible.���Dr. Frank Crane.
Wiping Away the Tears
The preacher was young and
nervous, but interesting. He was
making an eloquent plea for the
home life, and was descanting eloquently on the evils of the club,
telling his congregation that married men in particular should
spend their evenings at home with
their wives and children. "Think,
my hearers," said he, "of a poor,
neglected wife, all alone in the
great dreary house, rocking the
cradle of her sleeping babe with
one foot and wiping away the tears
with the other."
New Business
The Hon. William R. Ross,
Minister of Lands, has received a
letter from the Dominion Creoso-
ting Co. Ltd., of Vancouver, who
has received an order for 160,000
ereosoted railway sleepers from the
Bengal and North Western Railway Company of India, expressing
thanks to the Forest Branch of the
Department of Lands, for their
efforts in interesting the Indian
Railway Company in British Columbia lumber.
The Indian railways use annually
very large quantities of railway
sleepers, and the habit of tho past
has been to secure a lar ge portion
of this timber from Australia, but
as tho timber there is becoming
scarcer tho price is slowly advancing.
As a direct result of tho efforts
of the Hon, W. R. Ross who is
directing the forest branch in a
campaign for trade extcntion in
foreign markets this order for
160,000 ereosoted ties has been
placed with a British Columbia
firm.
The specifications call for best
quality well seasoned Douglas Fir
to be treated with 12 lbs. of cre-
sote per cubic foot under specified
temperature and pressure conditions.
Arrangements have been made
to have the forest branch inspect
the tieB both before and after treatment, so as to insure the specifications being strictly adhered to.
After the excellent qualities of
Douglas Fir have been tried out in
India, there will doubtless be
further large orders coming to
British Columbia and the creoso-
ting industry will be given a decided impulse.
The Best Man
Colonel Ingersoll, during his
speeches, was wont to give expression to some true and philosophical
utterances. The following regarding the rights of man ranks, perhaps, amongst the best that has
ever fallen from his lips:
"I want you to go away with
an eternal hatred in your breast of
injustice, of aristrocracy, of caste,
of the idea that one man has more
rights than another because he has
better clothes, more land; because
he owns a railroad, or is infamous,
or is in high position. Remember,
that all men have equal rights; re-
member, the man who acts best
his part, who loves his friend the
best, is most willing to help others,
truest to the discharge of obligations, who has the best heart, the
most feeling, the deepest sympathies and who freely gives to others
the right he claims for himself, is
the best man. I am willing to
swear to this.
"What kind of meat have yon
this morning?" asked the husband
of the butcher. ....
"The best steak we have ever
had, sir. Here you are, sir, ��b
smooth as velvet and as tender ap
a woman's heart."
"I'll take sausage."

Two Views of Whisky
Robert G. Ingersoll once sent
some whisky to a friend with the
following indorsement of its value:
"I send you some of the most
wonderful whisky that ever drove
the skeleton from the feast or
painted landscapes in the brain of
man. It is the mingled souls of
wheat and corn. In it you will
find the sunshine and shadow that
chas. each other over the billowy
fields, the breath of June, the carol
of the lark, the clew of night, the
wealth of summer and antumn's
rich contpnt, all golden with imprisoned light. Drink it, and yon
will hear the voice of men and
maidens singing the 'Harvest
Home' mingled with tho laughter
of children. Drink it, and yon
will feel within your blood the
star-led dawns, the dreamy, tawny
dusks of perfect days. For forty
years this liquid joy has been with-
iu staves of oak, longing to touch
tho lipa of man."
Upon reading this tribute Dr. J.
M. Buckley, a famous Methodist
divine and editor, wrote tbe following dissenting opinion.
"I send you some of the most
wonderful whisky that ever brought
a skeleton into the closet or painted scenes of lust and bloodshed in
the brain of man. It is the ghosts
of wheat and corn crazed by the
loss of their natural bodies. In it
you will find a transient sunshine
chased by a shadow as cold as an
arctic midnight in which the breath
of June grows icy, and the. carol of
the lark gives place to the foreboding cry of the raven.
"Drink it, and you shall have
'woe,' 'sorrow' 'babbling,' and
'wounds without cause'; 'your eyes
shall behold strange women,' and
'your heart shall utter perverse
things.' Drink it deep, and you
shall hear the voices of demons
shrieking, women wailing and
worse than orphaned children
mourning the loss of a father who
yet lives.    Drink it deep and long,
and serpents will hiss in your ears,
coil themselves about your neck,
and seize you with their fangs; for
'at the last it biteth like a serpent;
and stingeth like an adder.' For
forty years this liquid death has
been within staves of oak, harmless there as pureBt water. I send
it to you that you may 'put an
enemy in your mouth to steal away
your brains.' And yet I call myself yonr friend."
Six Puzzlers
Q. What is the difference between the death of a hairdresser
and the death of a sculptor?
A. One curls up and dyes, and
the other makes faces and busts.
Q. Why is a penny like a good
silver polish?
A. Because it is much in demand for the plate.
Q. What is that which everybody wants, everybody gives,
everybody asks, bnt very few take?
A.   Advice.
Q. Why is a motor-car like a
dog?
A. Because it sometimes relieves you of a tramp.
Q. What is odd about a horse
eating?
A. He eats_best when he hasn't
a bit in his mouth.
Had to Say Something
On board an ocean liner were a
lady and gentleman, accompanied
by their young hopeful, aged 6,
and as is usually the case the
parents were very sick while little
Willie was the wellest thing on
board. One day the parents were
lying in their steamer chairs hoping they would die, and little
Willie was playing about the deck.
Willie did something of which
his mother did not approve, so she
said to her husband, "John please
speak to Willie." The husband,
with the little strength left in his
wasted form looked at his son and
heir and feebly muttered: "How'-
dy do, Willie."

government shut it out of the mails,

DEAD FAILURES.
The reason we have so many dead failures is that parents decide for children what they shall do, or children
themselves, wrought on by some whim or fancy, decide for
themselves. So we have now in pulpits men making sermons who ought to be in blacksmith shops making plowshares, and we have in the law who instead of ruining the
cases of their clients ought to be pounding shoe lasts, and
doctors who are the worst hindrances to their patients'
convalesence, and artists trying to paint landscapes who
ought to be whithwashing board fences. While there are
others making bricks who ought to be remodeling constitutions, or shoving planes who ought to be transforming
literature.
There are children who early develop natural affinities
for certain styles of work. When the father of the astronomer Forbes was going to London he asked his children
what present he should bring each one of them. Then the
boy who was to be an astronomer cried out, ' 'Bring me a
telescope!" And there are children whom you find all by
themselves drawing on their slates or on paper, ships or
houses or draftsmen or artists of some kind. And you
find others ciphering out difficult problems with rave interest and success, and you know they are to be mathematicians. And others making wheels and strange contrivances, and you know they are going to be machinists. And
others are found experimenting with the hoe and plow and
sickle and you know they will be farmers. And others are
always swapping jack-knives or balls or bats and making
something by the bargain and they are going to be merchants. ,

CHRIST LOVED HOME.
Though too poor to have a home of .His own, He went
out to spend the night at Bethany, two are three miles
walk from Jerusalem, and over a rough and hilly road that
made it equal to six or seven ordinary miles, every morning and night going to and fro. He loved the quietude of
home life, and He was lovely in His domesticity,
How He enjoyed handing over the resurrected boy to
his mother and the resurrected girl to her father and reconstructing homesteads which disease or death was
breaking up. As the song "Home, Sweet Home" was
written by a man who at that time had no home, so we
think the homelessness of Christ added to his appreciation
of domesticity.
Furthermore, He was lovely in His sympathies. Now
dropsy is a most distressful complaint. It inflames and
swells and tortures any limb or physical organ it touches.
As soon as a case of that kind is submitted to Christ, He,
without any use of viaphoretics, commands its cure. And
what an eye doctor He was for opening the long closed
gates of sight to the blue of the sky, and the yellow of the
flower and the emerald of the grass. What a Christ He
was for cooling feevers without so much as a spoonful of
febrifuge, and straightening crooked backs without any
pangs of surgery, and standing whole choirs of music
along the silent- galleries of-a-deafeary and- giving healths
ful nervous system to cataleptics. .Sympathy! He did not
giye them stoical advice or philosophize about the science
of grief.   He sat down and cried with them.

About Float.
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 flash days of
Sandon ; how it rained in
New Denver  long  after
Noah was dead;   how a
parson took a  drink  at
Bear Lake in early days ;
how justice was dealt in
Kaslo - in���'93 ; -how-the
saloon man outprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically    depicts   the
roamings   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,

He Does Not Advertise.
Breathes there a man with sonl 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 than 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 lose,
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
Aad on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did sot advertise."

It looks like a revival of the old
placer days to see Chinese miners
miners hawking platina ore about
Princeton, but no buyers. In less
than three weeks' time these men
recovered 10 oz. of platina ore besides gold. With their usual reticence the Chinks would not tell
where they got it but it is supposed
that it was mined on the upper
Tulameen river.
It. A. Lambert has part of his
crew ready to begin sluicing on
Granite creek as soon as the water
lowers to enable him to reach bedrock, where the values in gold and
platinum are deposited.

place in Coalmont requires only a
visit to confirm.
Andy Jensen is down from Summit camp and rtports [progress on
the various mining propositions in
that promising section. He will
put some men at work on interests
in Sutter creek basin. J. C. Riley
has staked several claims on the
new strike in the Coquihalla.
A vein of solid steel galena has
been exposed on the Treasure
mountain Summit camp.
On Copper mountain enough
positive ore is now blocked to provide a 2,000 ton smelter with ore
for the next ten years.
As soon as the wagon road is
completed to WhipBaw camp, silver
lead ore can be hauled to Princeton
and shipped to Trail smelter. The
"Whipsaw is without question, one
of the best high grade camps as far

as proven. Capital and enterprize
are required for development.���

Unused Land
On the Coquihalla gold field
Messrs. Merrick and Thompson are
still developing their holdings with
satisfactory results. The more
work done on this property the
better it appears to be.
During the week a trail has been
cut to the strike and it is now an
easy matter to ride right to the
tunnel. This trail is to be extended along the mountain to the workings of Messrs. Bradley & Co., and
will probably be completed within
a few days. The latter party report payable showings of free gold
on their property as do others who
have staked beyond them towards
the bead of Ladner Creek.
The free gold bearing quartz has
now been traced continuously for a
distance of over two miles along
the lead, which should be sufficient to disprove the assertion that
the gold is "pockety."
At the 23-Mile on the Skagit,
several claim owners are doing
assessment and development work
with excellent results in every instance. "Doc" Collins has two
men at work on the Lucky Boy
and an assay made on the 12th
inst. gave a return of $59.05 per
ton���gold, 0.16 oz.; silver, 10.8
oz.; copper, 17.2 percent. This
was not a picked specimen, but a
general sample taken from the lode.
Since then a richer grade of ore has
been struck.
Frank Fritz has a large body of
good grade pre Bhowing, and
brought in some excellent samples.
There is no possible doubt as to
the extent and value of ore bodies
in this locality, and it is safe to
predict that before long "Twenty-!
three" will be one of the big copper producing districts of the West.
During the week two mining
men were in Hope from Summit
Camp. They report work being
carried on there, but  state pro-]
A bulletin which has just  been
issued by the census department
gives     a   table   comparing    the
amount of the total  land in  each
province with the amount of land
which could be put under crop and
the amount which is  being used.
Prince Edward Island  is at  the
head of the list.    It is rated as
using ninety-five per cent of all its
available land, and has only fifty-
six thousand acres that could be
used but are not.    With this, British  Columbia,   the   third   largest
province of Canada, shows a striking contrast.    In  1901  three per
cent of the available land of British  Columbia was  being farmed.
By the new report just out,  this
has been  increased,  and a   little
over five per cert of the available
land of the province is  now being
farmed.    That is,   there are two
and a half million acres taken up
by farmers or graziers in  the province out of a possible forty-five
million acres.    Yet British Colnm-
haB had more money spent on its
railways in  the  last   three years
than any other province.    It is unfortunately a country of two cities,
and  all other interests are made
subservient to them.    Nova Scotia
cultivates sixty-five per cent of her
good land.    New Brunswick about
forty-five per cent; Quebec, thirty-
five per cent; Ontario thirty-eight
per cent, Manitoba, seventeen per
cent;    Saskatchewan,   thirty   per
cent; Alberta,  Seventeen per cent.
Even the newest provinces as well
as those in  which the climate is
most rigorous,  leave British   Columbia, with its mild coast weather
and its sunny warm interior,   in a
class  by itself as a land that is
undeveloped agriculturally.    It is
encouraging to think that our land
is not yet all taken up.    There is
still more than three times as much
available  land   in   Canada unoccupied as that which is in use.���
Montreal Weekly Witness,
A Reverie.
War
Sometimes, old pal, in the morning,
When the dawn is cold and grey,
And I lie in the perfumed feathers,
Thinking thoughts I dare not say,
I think of the stunts of the night before
And smile a feeble smile,
And say to myself for the hundred,  time
"Is it really worth the while?"
Then I pick up the morning paper
And I see where some saintly man
Who never was soused in all his life
And who never said hell pr damn;
Who never stayed out till the wee'  sma'
hours,
Or jollied a gay soubrette.
But preached on the evils of drinking
The cards���and the cigarettes.
"Cut off in the prime of a useful life"
The headlines gibly say���
Or "Snatched by the grim reaper"
He has crossed the great highway*
They bury him deep while a few friends
weep
And they world moves on with a sigh
And the saintly man is forgotten soon,
Even as you or I.
Then I say to myself,  "Well, Bill, old
scout,
When you are called to take the jump,
When you reach the place where the best
and the worst
Must bump the eternal bump,
You can smile to yourself and chuckle,
Though the path be exceedingly hot,
When you were on earth you were moving
some,
Now is that an unholy thought?
When I rise and   attach   a   cracked ice
band
To the crown of my battered hat,
And saunter torth for a cold gin-fizz,
She's a great old world at that,.
And I go on my way rejoicing,
.: ���:What's, the nseto complain or sigh,-y:^(
To the:route, old scout, and be merry,:..;
'���'. For tomorrow you may die.:
What is war? Look! There it
is yonder on that field blood-soaked
Mid death-strewn, There, where
bullets hiss and cannons roar,
where gatling guns hurl out their
deadly bullets at the rate of 3,000
:. minute, where screaming shells
charged with peroxileno burst into
a leaden rain of deadly missies
sweeping away every vestage of life
for a space of two hundred yards;
there, where men, mangled, mutilated beyond recognition, writhe
and groan and die; there, where
pain-maddened horses expire in
lingering torture,���there you may
find the answer to the question,
���'What is war?"
To take a nation's youth, strong
and bravo, generally its toilers in
mill and factory and shop who
havo no more grievance against
their fellows whom they have bidden kill than against their next-
door neighbors, to tako these who
brought on no quarrel, havo no
political, nor financial, nor any
other selfish end to gain, and send
them to the battle's front to murder
and be murdered,���and to do it in
the name of patriotism, claiming
the Eternal Righteousness is on
your side,���this is war.
To rend, riddle, dismember,
your human brother, and to do
this under the sanction of law���
this is war.
To break the hearts of women
and crush them beneath waisting
loads of care, to put the fire out on
a thousand hearths, to create an
army of fatherless children in a
day, and to do it legally, thanking
the good God that you have done
all this to your neighbor before he
did it to you���this is war.
To waste the fruit of human toil,
generations of it in a day, to sack
and pillage city and town, to
trample ripening and golden harvests, to turn a paradise of hillside
and valley into a flame-swept,
blackened landscape sodden with
human blood, and to sing Te
Dennis when it is over���this is
war.
To settle the quarrel of nations
by might and not right, by
machines that wipe out human
liveB at the rate of a thousand a
minute, when all could have been
settled by a half-dozen honest,
clear-headed men, without the firing of a gun or the destruction of a
single life,���this is the shame, the
crime against man and God which
Christian men call war.
If fathers and mothers whose
sons may some day be summoned
into a war brought on by men who
will never go themselves to be shot
to pieces, would but read the
story of a twentieth century field
of battle, and see for bnt a single
moment, in imagination, their
boys the victims of that merciless
onslaught of bullets, dynamite,
lyddite���see their scorched, dismembered bodies, look into their
anguished faces, hear their dying
groans' there would be no more
war   from   henceforth,   forever.���

A Dinner in Mexico
The dinner began with soup,
followed by an array of courses,
mostly compounds of things I did
not recognize, and nearly all very
hot with chili-peppers, but on the
whole palatable. Frijolos (beans)
were served just before the dulce.
That is a warning that you have
had all you are going to get and to
satisfy yourself upon them if you
have not had enough of the other
things. They were well cooked
and good. The bread was in the
form of rolls, sweetened, and of
poor quality���"pan bianco'' it is
called. It is tho characteristic
bread, however, of Mexico���when
bread is to be had at all. The
coffee was of good quality, but,
like all Mexican coffee, muddy <vnd
very strong. It is burned black
iu roasting, ground to a powder,
boiled, and served grounds and
all. You are supposed to drink
the grounds.
After dinner Ramos took us
about the town. It has, he informed us, about thousand inhabitants. The buildings on the
main street, as I have hinted, are
of mostly Spanish architecture,
while tlie others are merely shacks
of poles and mud, with thatched
roofs and earthen floors. The
main street is paved with cobblestones, through which grass grows,
and from the sea front to the customs house a minature railroad is
laid, on which a push car is operated to carry freight from the landing to the warehouse.
Men and women lounged in the
little shops, drinking mescal and
tequila, their native whisky. The
��� latter is simply a better quality of
the former. The best shops are
kept by Chinamen, and everything
is sold in them, including dry-goods
and fruit. We stopped at one and
drank some cocoanut milk and
then ate the soft meat from the
green fruit with a spoon. They do
not eat the cocoanut here after it
has ripened. We also tested the
oranges, green-skinned but ripe
and sweet, all seedlings and not to
be compared in quality with the
oranges of   California;   and   ban-

A well-dressed man, passing
along Orchard street, New York
City, the other day, saw a woman
sitting on the steps of No. 252.
Sbe held a baby in her arms and
was crying. The stranger got a
boy to interpret for him, and
learned that the woman had been
put out of her apartments. She
owed three months' rent, $36.
"Send for your landlord," said
the stranger, "I'll pay your rent."
Tbe landlord, a grocer on Norfolk street, near by, came, and the
stranger told him, to give the
woman the receipts for fonr
months' rent, including one month
in advance. The landlord brought
the receipts and the stranger gave
him $100 bill. The landlord didn't
have change, but the stranger Baid
carelessly that he looked honest
and be would trust him to take the
bill away and return the change.
In a few minutes the landlord
brought back $52. The stranger
gave the woman $2 and put $50 in
his pocket, and departed with tbe
blessings of a large crowd of sympathizing neighbors who witnessed
the charitable act.
Police Captain Devery, in telling
the story, added: /'It took that
landlord just one hour to learn
that the $100 bill was counterfeit,
when he rushed up here to tell me
about it he had pulled out half his
whiskers in his rage. He can't
put the woman oat, however.
She's got her receipts."���Labor
