In September, 1912, Francesco
Ganzini paid G. Gatti, agent for
the British Columbian Accident
and Employers Liability Co., the
sum of $14.30 for an accident
policy. He did not receive the
policy in ten days and notified
the agent to that effect. In December Ganzini was injured and
spent some time in the hospital.
He notified the company and referred to the accident policy that
he had paid the agent for. The
company denied any knowledge
of such a policy, and Ganzini
entered an action against the
campany to secure damages but
lost his case with costs. The
fraudulent agent had made no
returns to the company, and no
policy had been issued. In future
people taking out insurance policies shoald be sure of the man
they are dealing with, andcom-
j panies should exercise more care
in the selection of their agents.

The Mortgage Payer
In these days of the high cost of
food and especially of meat, when
the packers are despairing of the
meat supply and the price of" flesh
fpod is^roceeding steadily upward,
farmers would do well, to pay heed
to a section of Samuel W. Aller- /
ton's book on "Practical Farming," entitled, "The Hog the
Mortgage Payer."
Mr. Allerton says that this is
what the hog is known as on
Illinois farms and he believes'that
it is an eminently correct designation. He gives much practical
advice regarding the successful
raising af hogs and points out that
the only serious obstacle to success
is hog cholera.
But this may be avoided by
proper feeding of the animal, his
idea being   that   cholera- is pro-	
duced by overfeeding' of corn. He
therefore advises ground barley aB
a change of feed, and also suggests,
in order to prevent the spread of
the disease in case any animal
upon a farm should become infected with it, that hog coops be
constructed, and scattered over the
farm so that infection may be confined to as few of the animals as
possible and the loss minimized.
Mr. Allerton shows that by
proper care hog raising is not expensive, and it is unnecessary to
point out that in these times of
high prices it brings large returns.
He shows, in addition, that besides
the direct value of hog breeding in
the profit of the animals themselves, hogs greatly enrich the land
upon which they run, and thus
their presence on the. farm makes
for the betterment of all crops by
supplying, natural fertilizer.
Farmers should know all these
things not only for their own benefit but for tho sake of the entire
consuming public of the nation-
If it were realized how profitable
hog cultivation really is, there
would be many more hogs raked
and the meat problem would be by
no means acute.

as follows:
"No one disturbs '/.he dry and

In man love is pure emotion; in

The instinct of the world is right
in placing the blame of marriage
usually upon the wife. For a man
in love is a sort of a wild idiot.
The deeper he gets in love the
more irresponsible and crazy he becomes; while the more a woman
loves the wiser she is.
Love seems too strong a liquor
for a man, and a little of it appears
to be all he can stand. A woman,
on the contrary, like some old
topers, grows shrewder, keener
eyed and clearer headed the more
she feels.
Hence in most couples -who are
very loving it is the wife who
rules. As they become more and
more cool the authority of the
husband rises.
Further, the more that love is
physiciai merely the more the man
controls the woman, and she looks
up to him; and the more spiritual
and intellectual love becomes the
more the woman is in the ascendancy.
This is why the wife is so free
and potent in America, woman is
most idealized here.
Love to a man, is a mystery; he
can only be happy in blundering,
wondering way; but a woman the
more she loves the more she knows
what she is about.���Dr. Frank

remarked that he had the honor of
escorting his grandfather about
some forty years ago. Appeals for
subscriptions to charities are also
very numerous, and these communications ave scrutinized with
the utmost care, for should the
Prince subscribe it would be announced that he was a patron, and
it might be found out later on that
the charity was simply a money

Prince's name might be used to

Plague of Samples
is said that the bulk of the
Prince of ^Wales'   daily   mail  is
made np of samples and advertising matter.   He receives enough
samples of cigars and cigarettes in
the conrse'of a day to last a heavy
smoker for a year.   Usually there
are twenty-five or fifty cigars or
cigarettes   enclosed    in  a  plain
mohogany   box.    Sometimes the
case is of silver or of gold.    It iB

to return the costly cases and the
samples they contain, with a note
explaining that he never retains a
sample of so valuable a character:
An enterprising proprietor of an
hotel at Nice went to the trouble
to prepare a book describing the
advantages of his hotel, which was
printed on parchment illustrated
by hand, and bound in beaten salver.    It must of cost at least
$1,000.   Another hotel proprietor
in Cario sent a silver medal of his
hotel, and a letter praying that the
Prince might do him the honor of
being the guest the first time he
went abroad.   Some of the letters
the Prince receives are very amus-

A Terrible Journey
A story illustrating Strathcona's
energy and pluck as a young man
is told by Kenneth Bernard,
When young Smith 7/as in charge
of a trading post in the Hudson
Bay country, he was smitten with
snow blindness. It could not be
cured in the wilds. To wait until
the yearly steamer arrived might
mean the total loss of sight, the
end of all things. It was strictly
against the rules of the Hudson's
Bay Company for any official to
leave his post without permission.
But this was a case of desperate
necessity and young Smith took a
chance. He took two of his Indian
people and at the beginning of
winter set off on a tramp of 500
miles to Montreal. At last after
two months he became before the
autocrat of the company, Sir
George Simpson, in his office at
Montreal. Sir George heard his
tale, and then asked abruptly:
"Who gave you leave to quit
your post?"
"Who could?" replied the agent,
"since no man lives within a
thousand milec of me?"
"If it be but a choice between
your [eyes and the service of the
company," thundered the governor, "get back to your post as
quickly as you can.''
One version of the story has it
that the young agent turned in his
tracks and started back to his post
without delay. According to another version, he remained until
his eyes were cured. However that
may be, he began his return journey in the dead of winter, the
severest winter he had experienced
during his long term in the north.
His Indians protested, but the
young man was bound to go. The
Indians perished on the way and
Smith finished the last hundred
miles of the trip alone. Some
years ago he was asked}to describe
the journey.
*��No, no���I can't," he answered.
"It's too terrible to think about."

Forestry Facts
Mr. R. H. Campbell, Director
of tho Forestry, who recently returned from a tour of inspection of
the Dominion Forest Reserves in
the West, says: 'Unquestionably
the work there is in better shape
this year than ever before.' Not
only have fire-fighting facilities,
such aa trail, lookout stations, telephone lines, tool-caches and fire
guards, been very much improved,
but tho construction of good roads
has made the pleasure-resorts in
these reserves more accessible to
the public.

The revenue from the forests of
British India, under the administration of the Indian Forest Service, amoanted last year to fourteen million' dollars. Over one
and one-quarter million dollars
were derived from the sale of
minor produce other than 'timber,
and a similar amount was obtained
by leasing grazing privileges in
these forests,
Many cases of the Indians'
wastefulness with game have been
noted in the West. One Dominion
Forest Surveyor writes: 'The
Indians slaughter an enormouB
number of moose, of which they
waste over a half. Often they
take away only the hide, while
they seldon take away more than
the hind.quarters.'

"It requires a lot of courage and

Sir Thomas Lipton once. "I remembered when I was just started
in business, I was very poor, and
making every sacrifice to enlarge
my little shop. My. only assistant
was a boy of fourteen, faithful,
willing and honest. One day I
heard htm complaining and with
justice, that his clothes were so
shabby that he was ashamed to go
to any place of worship on Sunday.
''There's no chance of me getting
a new suit this year," he told me.
Dad's oat of work and it'takes
all my wages to pay the rent."
"I thought the matter over and
then took a sovereign from my
carefully hoarded savings and
bought the boy a stout warm suit
of blue cloth. He was so grateful
that I felt repaid for my sacrifices.
But the next day he didn't come
to work, I met his mother in the
Btreet and asked her the reason.

curtseying, 'Jimmie looks so respectable, thanks to yon, sir, that
I thought I would send him round

the diamond. He discovered it in the course of

'ake her this sprtng? He could run
for the legislature when he came bad
!n the fall; a senator would be elected
by the nest General Assembly, and
the graft would be very good then.
The compromise attracted Malachi,
for at once it acquitted him of Indecision, a cua.lity of statesmanst-i?
lie hated, and kept for him the life of
power that had hecome as the very
breath of his nostrils.
The long day, was done, and
4Malachi, inshirt-sle-eves and stockinged' feet, sat in his big plush rocking-
chair, his legs stretched out bofore
htm, taking his ease at his own
hearth. When he had come home at
midnight, Nora, "who always sat up
for him, had ln&isted upon brewing
him a cup of tea, under the impression, common to a certain clasp
of wotaen, that It has great medicinal
qualities'. Malachi had sipped it obe-
dLently, though he had not cared for
It after all the mineral waters ho had,
drunk that day, and had enjoyed far
more than the tea the freckled' Irlsl
face of his daughter, as he gravely
goggled at hex oyer the rim of the
saucer into which he had poured the
beverage to cool it. '
"Nora, child, do ye sing now ���

slid farther down In his plush' chair,
and, just as he was prepared to listen,
she suddenly stopped in the provoking
way amateur musicians cultivate, to
say: .    )^''
"But, father, that's such an old
song; wouldn't you rather I'd sing the

Malachi 'Opened his eyes with a
start and sat bolt upright.
"Na-w," he said, "none o' thim fur'n

his voice aulckly softened. "Do ye

remembered the "words of a line, he

song was done Nora whirled around,
clasped her hand., in a schoolgirl's
ecstasy, and said: . -
"Oh. father, that song makes me

A pain struck through Malachi
Nolan's heart, a pain that was made
only more poignant when, with her
American fear. oS the sentimental,
Nora joked:
"I must sea our ancestral cabin."
Malachi could not open his eyes.
For once he was Afraid. He did not
move for a long tine. But at last he
sighed and set hie jaw, and said:
"Well, Nora ��� If ye Baay so ��� In

There'is no character in the home circle more useful and
and beautiful than a devoted elder sister who stands side
by side with the toiling mother, lightening all her cares
and burdens. How beautiful the household machinery
moves on such efficient help. Novy' she presides at the
table in her mother's absence, always so neatly attired
that it is with pride the father introduces her to his guest
as "our oldest daughter." Now she takes a little troop
into the garden with her and amuses them so that mother
will not be disturbed in her work or rest. Now she helps
the boys with their hard lessons or reads father's paper
aloud to rest his tired eyes. If mother can run away for
a few days recreation she leaves home without any anxiety
for Mary will guide her house wisely and happily in her
absence. But in the sick room he-.- presence is an especial
blessing. Her hand is next to mother's own in gentleness
and skill. Her sweet music can charm and brighten the
weariest hours. There are elder sisters whose presence is
not such a blessing in a home. There own selfish ends and
aims are the main pursuits in life, and anything that
stands in the way of these is regarded with great impa/
tience. Such daughters are no comfort to a mother's
heart, Which kind of an elder sister are you in the

We have never seen a fussy, slavish, hardworking
mother who was not repaid for all her toil and care and
anxiety by a set of as selfish children as ever lived. A
mother who really has the good of her children at heart,
will teach them/as soon as they can walk not only to help
themselves but to help others. She will not bring them up
under the impression that they are unfledged angels, 'but
dear,; wilful little mortals who must learn they came to
serve and not to rule. Self sacrifice is a good quality in a
mother, but it is possible to carry that spirit too far; it is
possible to make sacrifices which are not only uncalled for
and not necessary, but really harmful in their effects.

Strong Tigorous men and women
hardly ever catch cold; it's only when,
the system is run down and -itality
low that- colds and coughs get a foothold.
Now Isn't it reasonable that the
right way to cure a cough is to build
up your run down condition, again?
Mrs. "D. A. McGee oi Waycross, Ga.,
says: "I had a chronic cold and cough
which kept me awake nights tor two
years and I felt tired all the time.
Vinol cured my cough and I feel
stronger in every way."
The reason Vinol Is so efficacious
in such cases is because it contains
in a delicious concentrated form all
the medicinal curatiye elements of
cod liver oil, with tonic, blood building iron added.
Chronic coughs and colds yield to
Vinol because it builds up the weakened, run-down system.

Much excitement has been caused
locally by the reported find of gold
in the crop of a turkey purchased
at Christmas time from England &
Son's here, who we believe bought
the same from Mr. Frolek, a rancher on Rosehill Bays the Kamloops Standard. On washing out
the crop of the turkey, which by
the way was a magnificent bird the
precious metal was seen shining
among the sand and gravel in the
basin and after being subjected to
a magnifying glass was found to be
gold of a placer type and of a vivid
A year or so ago quite a furore
was caused by the reported find of
gold in the crops of geese and turkeys bought from Mr. Tilton's
ranch in the same district but the
report was discredited at the time
and nothing was done.
This new discovery, however,
has opened up the theory again
that gold either in placer form or
in the reef exists on Rosehill and
probabLy to a large extent.
Should the discovery be followed
up and gold found there in any
quantity Rosehill and Kamloops
shou Id largely benefit and another
asset that of gold mining added to
the latter's rich assets.
It is reported that the British
Columbia Copper company may
issue $1,000,000 convertible bonds
soon to finance, the purchase and
equipment of additional properties.
During 1913 the company spent
about 8400,000 for new properties
where there haB been developed
about 4,000,000 tonB oE ore averag-
i�� g 1.6 per cent copper. Probable
ore is believed to be about 12,000,-
000 tons. All the ore carries gold
and silver values.
��� A. new concentrator will be
erected to handle the ores from the
new properties, while the mill
product will be shipped to the

yip ce, is to be placed here for the
development of properties and
mines as the result of the investigations of Ralph Stokes, of New
"YoTk, one of the best known mining engineers on the continent.
Mr. Stokes has just returned
from Calgary, where he went to
make a report in that vicinity.
He Baid sufficient to indicate that
the Canadian Mining & Exploration Company, a twenty million
dollar corporation, formed about
three years ago with Sir William
Mackenzie and William Corey, |of
Bteel trust fame, at its head, was
interesting Itself in British Columbia, and this year this province
would be given a thorough survey
with a view to taking over and developing some properties, which
will be selected as the reBult of investigations.
"This is a country of great mineral possibilities," said-Mr. Stokes,
"bat of coarse I am nob prepared
to make a definite statement as to
any of the localities in which my
work carried me during the past
season.   This season's work might
be called but a preliminary survey.
I will   say this,   however,   that
greater work will be carried out
ti'is year.     This  past  season  I
started with two assistants,   but
one became ill.   Next season I ex
pc-cfe to employ at least four.

In the most sensational hockey
game played in the Boundary this
season Phoenix ontscored Greenwood on Saturday night at the rink
here by 5 to one The struggle
was bitterly keen from the start
and surcharged with excitement
throughout. The fans were on
their feet in a ecstacy of enthusiasm
sensation followed sensation, until
it seemed that the limit of thrills
would never be reached.
Taken throughout both teams
were able to stand the pace all the
way, and every moment was replete
with action. On the night's play
there was not a pin to choose between the two teams; a shake of
the dice might just as well have determined the outcome. If anything the locals were at fault in not
boring in from the first. Phoenix
seldom got close to Greenwood's
net and all the goals were scoted
from long shooting. Fisher and
Neil played star defence stopping
rush after rush and both of tliem
made some spectacnlar efforts. In
the second period Neil took the
puck at cover and in a whirlwind
rush scored for Greenwood. Smith
on left wing distinguished himself,
making some of the prettiest dribbles imaginable. He was working
hard all the time and did some nice
shooting but goaltender Mitchell
was a stonewall. Donnelly, too,
on right wing was playing a good
game and was always in his posi-
He was somewhat bandi-
rib but he
played a splendid game for all that.
Trehem at centre was always there
and undoubtedly played a determined game, but he received no
backing. More than once Greenwood bad victory iu their grasp
had they passed the puck to Tre-
hern, but no, our boys seemed determined to hug the rubber. Lyn,
of course, made some grand rushes

What will be known as the Eeco'
Mining <& Milling Co., has-been jffl\
corporated under the laws of this
state by the owners oj the Reco
mine near Chesaw. The new corporation will have a capital Btock
of $1,000,000 with as many shares
at a par value of $1 non assessable.
It Is the intention of tbe company to drive a new tunnel down
nearer the road level to crosscut
theleageata depth of about 110' bu(. fl_ could nofe centre the puck
and was always chased into the
corner and then Phoenix would secure the puck and come down the
ice four abreast and pass the puck
feet, and when the ore body is en
countered in this new workings tbe
property is expected to be ready
for extensive operations. The tunnel has been started and will be
pushed to the ore as rapidly as
possible. John Loundagin, secretary of the new company, will be
in camp next week in the interests
of the company.���Chesaw News.
The report h-s been received by
the Silver Standard people from
Mr. Kleesattel, of Seattle, the mining engineer who recently made
the examination of that property
for the owners. The report all
through is very optimistic and the
engineer goes so far as to say that
so far -aejknoW8 the property._ possesses everything required for a big
and successful mine. He submitted two plans for operation. One
was a tunnel 4,500 feet long run in
from the Two Mile side. The other
was an aerial tram from the summit to Glen mountain down to the
wagon road at Two Mile where ore
bunkers will be built. The objec-
tection to the tunnel would be that
very little additional depth could
be gained than what they already
have, and for the lower workings
it would have to be shafts. It is
most likely that the tram line will
be adopted and it is the plans of
the company to instil the Bame this
year and have it ready for shipment next fall.
There are 38 churches iu Borne,
all Catholic. One, the Ooppuo-

away by devoted kisses.

from one to another. It was great
to watch their combination. Individual efforts, while brilliant, lost
the game for Greenwood. Tbe
players clung tenaciously to tbe
rubber when a pass would have re-
sulted-in a goal and the locals tbre w
away a score of chances through
tbis evil. Man for man Green wood
played equally as good'hockey, but
the latter had team play.
Heartbreaking as it was to lose,
too much praise cannot be given
Phoenix for their grand win. Their
combination could not have been
excelled and time and again they
carried the,rubber the length of the
ice slipping the disc from stick to
stick. It was this machine-like
combination that enabled them to
get a lead aud they won because of
their utter unselfishness. It is no
disgrace to lose to such an aggregation. Better luck next time boys,
but for goodness sake play position
and dont play hog with the rubber.

the game was Greenwood's but it
waB mighty hard luck. Our boys
played together well and by keeping up that class of hockey they
will yet win the league, for a better bunch of players have never
yet been together in the Boundary,
bub they must play combination.
Early in the game Axelson, playing point for Greenwood, received
a nasty cut on the chin necessitating five stitches.
