. .Perfect photography, actual

Larger crowds should; certainly
turn out to encourage Mr. Shaw
in his endeavors to give only the
best.
Successful Dance
The dance given by the ladies
of the Sacred Heart church in
the Old Masonic Hall last Wednesday night was a big success.
Although the attendance did not
come up to expectations the dance
was voted a-thorough success .by
all who attended. The music of
seven pieces furnished by the
Ironside Orchestra of Phoenix,
was exceptionally fine, and under
the influence of its spirited strains
dancing was kept up until near
morning dawn, with an interval
at midnight when supper was
served. The ladies of the Roman
Catholic church take this oppor
tunity of thanking all who were
present and otherwise helped to
make the affair so enjoyable.

Died, at her home in Greenwood,
on Friday' afternoon, Mrs. Ruby
G-. Hargreaves, aged 37 years, beloved wife of Robert G. Hargreaves.
The ead news of Mrs. Hargreaves
sadden death cast a shadow over
1ihe whole community, and every
heart was touched with sympathy
for tha stricken one, from whose
fireside the light had fled. Seemingly with us today, active in life's
round of duty and love, but gone
tomorrow. Here she spent a few
happy years, here Bhe helped to
establish a comfortable home, here
her busy life, her battles fought, her
faithful service rendered to the
world.
At noon Mrs. Hargreaves seemed
perfectly well and kissed her husband Good-bye as he left for his
place of business. At 3 o'clock in
the afternoon she phoned to Mr.
Hargreaves to come home as she
did not feel well, and shortly after
his arrival with the doctor she expired from convulsions.        <
She was born at "Silverheighfes"
near Winnipeg,- on the ranch purchased by Lord Strathcona.    Her
homo instincts   were   strong; her
affection for friends was tender and
abiding.   Amongst us all she ranked as a woman of culture,  refinement, sympathy, a kind neighbor,
a devoted wife, a true friend, and
above all a woman of heroic mould
in. bravely meeting the .stern : requirements and often disappointments of life.    Her life was a rare
jewel, her spirit- as gold refined in
the fire,. ready for Heaven. , She
ran the'journey of her life itr-37
years.   It iB a path marked with
deeds _ of-  kindness    and    cheer,
Flowers not thorns,  sunshine not
shadow did she scatter everywhere.
Truth was the . inspiration of her
life and by kindness she exemplified
its great worth.
She was married on Jnne 23,
1905, at Eergiison, B. C. to Ttobert
G. Hargreaves. Much has been
taken from this husband, sweet ties
have been severed, but much has
been left. The Christian's hope
and fadeless memories are still his.
Hone but those who have sat in
the shadow of a great bereavement
���can. j_8tly__weigh_such a -sorrow as
this. Such anguish cannot find
solace in fehe tenderest words. She
who has gone forth could not be
supported on her solitary path by
any earthly friend. The husband
with a devot|pn few men are cap-
Able of, whose strength was given
sweetly, tenderly feo his precious
wife, could not detain her by the
<slasp of earthly love, but after the
last sign of recognition was gone, a
look of peace settled on her face
which proclaimed victory, and he
knew she was resting on a mighty
arm,
She leaves besides her heart-broken hoBband two sisters in Victoria.
Thefaneral services were held
At the Presbyterian Church at 10.15
on Monday morning, Rev. J. B.
Munro officiating. Interment took
place at Victoria.
In the light, not of the snn,
neither of the moon, we Bee her
beyond the fields of fadeless asphodel, under the waving patms, beside the still Waters bordered with
silver lillies. These may be merely
figure?, bnt they bear a precious
meaning to a, yearning heart���a
heart that will not be comforted
because the Angel of the House is
T_d._8.ng.

GREENWOOD, MAY 14, 1914.
This mud-thrower loves a
sinning mark.
It is still true that the
greatest loss is the friend
who is not dead.
In small and dull towns,
the gossip and spite worker
do a thriving business.
The ruler in Mexico is a
drunken Indian, who is not
on the Siwash list.
In the district around
Greenwood, there is enough
land to support thousands of
people if it was cultivated.
Stakers are Active
In B. C. the liquor law is
an open farce in reference to
auto drivers buying and
drinking booze, Bvery day
in some part of the province,
drunken drivers are seen
steering autos through the
scenery. Before the summer
is over the papers will have
some live items, and a few
���families will have crape on
their doors.
Thinking Themes
If a man who has lost touch en-
tirely with churches, who has
formed his life with interests that
entirely exclude the religious feeling, who feels that there are insuperable obstacles, mental and instinctive to his entering into the
current of conventional religious)
ideas and ways, if each a man
would go out into the woods and
pray, it would do him good.
If he could brash aside all he
has ever heard or been taught about
God and if he could approach the
God-idea anew, naively, merely
trying to lift his Bpirit into communion with the infinite Bpirit, he
would get something that would
d.finitely enrich his life.
Most of onr aversions to the God
idea arises from the mass of tradition that has been connected with
it. I doubt if the accumulated religions experience, the study and
practice of spirituality in the past,
is of much real valne. What value
it has lies in what it has con
tributed to our sub-conscionB
growth.
Just as modern science has to
discard practically aH of the alleged
facts of science previous to a hun
dred years ago or so and approach
the laws of the universe originally;
so modern devotion needs, while it
is a growth from the past, to put
away nearly all the past, and begin over.���Dr. Frank Crane.
"You've
your paper,
made a mistake in
" said the indignant
man, entering the editorial sane
turn. "I was one of the com'
petitors at the athletic match yesterday, and yon have called me the
well-known lightweight champion."
"Well, aren't yon/' said the
editor.
"No, I'm nothing of the kind,
and it's confoundedly awkward,
because, you see, I'm a coal merchant
Staking continues to occupy the
attention of the stampeders in the
Sixty-mile country. Ten to twelve
miles are staked above the portion
described as a river, and river
-claims are staked along a good portion of the ground below the creek
limit.
Tenmile, a tributary of Sixty-
mile, has been staked to the clouds.
The posts extend to or into the
sixtieB above discovery.
In tbe Scroggie district some
staking of placers also has been
done of late. Mariposa claims
have been renewed, and the future
of the creek is encouraging to the
men who have been working there.
The Dawson recorder is flooded
with applications for claims staked
on O'Brien and vicinity. The
several creeks there are long, and
prospectors have been much encouraged by the finding of traces of
gold in several places and the location of seven-cent pans at the bottom of the shaft sunk on discovery
by McLaughlin and partner. The
district is easily accessible, and if
it is developed into a paying one
will be in easy reach of steamers
all throngh the open season.
Bowen creek which lies near the
boundary, and was known by some
as Dominion, has been prospected
quite a little of late, and the fractions recently have been staked.
Some of the Chisana prospectors
are said to have moved down to
Bowen to work,

IF"
all
If you can keep your head  when
about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on
you;
If you can trust yourself when all men
doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting
. too;
If you can wait and not be tired of waiting,
Or being lied about don't jleal...in .lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk
too wise;
If you can dream���and not make dreams
your master;
If you   can   think���and   not   make
thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the
same.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've
spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for
fools,
Or watch the thing you gave your liie to,
broken,
And stoop  and  build  them up with
wornout tools;
If you can make one heap of all your
winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch and
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your
If you can force your heart and nerve and
sinew
To serve your turn long after they are
gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in
you
Except the will which says to them:
"Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep
yonr virtue,
Or walk with kings���nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor lying friends   ran
hart yon,  '.,'���'������:.
If all men count ^ with you, but none
too much;   .
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance
run,
Yours is the earth and everything that's
in it.
And���which is more you'll be a man,
my son!
���Rudyard Kipling
To the Editor of the Toronto
News:���
I was much ineerested in the
account'of "The .Oldest Bible in
Canada" which appeared in your
issue of April 16th, the owner
being Mr. W. C. Mikel, K. C, of
Belleville, Ont. Having been published in 1700, it certainly is venerable in years, and is an heirloom
of great value, At the time it was
printed there were only 6,000,000
people in England and Wales to
read it.
But I must demur to tbe claim
put forward that it is the oldest
Bible in Canada. I do not know
who is entitled to Qthe honor of
possessing it. But I have a Bible
inherited from my father and
bronght to Canada by myself, that
is GG years older than the one at
Belleville. It was printed by Robt
Barker in the year 1634, or 23 years
after the translation during the
reign of King James. It is well
bound in leather, and has been re
bound since its publication. The
letter press is the old English or
Gothic, and it is copiously annotated by an early hand. On the
flyleaf is written tin my father's
hand:
"Printed in the 9th year of the
year of Charles the First, and 15
years befroe the Protectorate of
Oliver Cromwell. John Banyan
was six years old. Milton was 26
years of age. In this year the regular Post was established in Great
Britain. 47 years before the
founding of Philadelphia by W.
Penn."
No doubt someone has an older
Bible in Canada. If such a person
sees this letter, perhaps he will take
the trouble to let it be known.

Harper's weekly.
There was recently hauled into
an Alabama court a little Irishman to whom the thing was a new
experience. He was, however,
unabashed, and wore an air of a
man determined not to get the
worst of it."
"Prisoner at the bar," called out
the clerk.
"Do you wish to challenge any
of the jury?"
Whereupon the Celt looked the
men in the box over very carefully
and with a skilled eye.
"Well, I tell ye," he finally re-
plie, "Oi'm not exectly in training,' but Oi think Oi conld pull oS

A sea captain and his mate went
ashore on getting into port, and
made for the nearest restaurant.
They ordered soup. When it
arrived, the captain examined the
curious looking fluid, and shouted:
"Here, waiter, what d'ye call
this?"
"Soup, sir," said the water.
"Soap." said the captian, turning to the mate; "blame mo, Bill,
if you an' mo ain't been sailin' on
soup all our lives and never knowed
ife."
A Helpful Crop
Referring to the statement of the
MacLeod Advertiser that a crop of
tobacco greatly impoverishes the
soil we have been told to refer anyone who is interested in this matter to Gordon Fox, of Ruthven,
Ont.
Mr. Fox had a field on which he
couldn't raise either corn or wheat.
He was advised to .plant it in
tobacco and did so. He had a fine
crop.
__In tbe fall he sowed wheat and
had the best crop on his farm from
the same field.
. Tobacco is claimed to be one of
the best rejuvenators known for
played out wheat land for the
reason that it puts saltpetre into
the soil and that is just the thing
that over-cropped wheat land re
quires.
Country Town Sayings
When the train stopped at a little southern station the northern
tourists sauntered out on the platform. Under a scrub oak s ood a
lean animal with scraggy bristles.
The tourist was interested. "What
do you call that?" he inquired of a
lanky native.
"Razor back hawg."
"Well what is he doing rubbing
against that tree?"
"He's stropping himself mister;
jest stropping himself."
Some people are so timid that
they are never impudent except to
friends.
One of the greatest accomplishments in the world is to be able to
back up the minute you find your
self going wrong.
More people seem to be reaching
that desperate frame of mind where
they don't care if the neighbors do
know what th ey do on Sunday.
The better you get acquainted
with a man and his wife, the more
surely you discover that they are a
little afraid of each other.
One rich man's son who has all
the money he can spend, and nothing to do, will spoil ten young men
in the course of hiB life.
I have often been severly criticized because of failure to appro
ciate a song as much as the girl
who sang it.
Don't depend on the Committee;
do it yourself.
Take an occasional chance; the
sure things are all tied.
When you go on a journey and
expect someone to meet you at the
station, and no one does, ever
notice how funny you feel.

iEdison Phonograph
Throughout the history of sound reproduction Mr. Edison
has blazed the trail. Every important step has been conceived first in his mind. He is the acknowledged master
of acoustics throughout the world. His recent triumph is
the Blue Amberol Record.
It came, after countless experiment., with all its strength of volume, sweetness of quality and lasting endurance. To bring out die
remarkable tone of this new
record demanded a new reproducer. He invented it���the
Diamond - If oint Reproducer.
With it there is none of the annoyance of changing the needle
after each record. The diamond
is as much a part of the phonograph as its beautiful cabinet.

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

How still it is! The busy workaday world has ceased
its labors, the rush and daily turmoil of daily strife is
over, and night stretches its somber shadows over alL No
sound but the drip of the blessed rain breaks the silence,
and it falls in a soft, slow dripping as though loathe to
break the slumber. Sitting alone in the stillness of our
room, looking out into the darkness, listening to the patter
of the raindrops, thoughts too many and many of them too
painful, come thronging up in our brain���thoughts that
keep''Death's twin sister Sleep" far away. There are
many things as we think of thein, that should not have
been neglected, many unkind words spoken that can
never be recalled whose wounds no afterwords nor deeds
can entirely heal.
The flesh may heal over wounds, but the scar remains;
this is true of a flesh wound, and move so where the feelings the heart, has been hurt. Strange, too, that it is not
the alien, the sometime guest, or the acquaintance, upon
whom we inflict these wounds, but those who are nearest
and dearest���those upon whose existence our very life as
it were, depends���those who love us and are entitled to
all the love and endearing words all the little acts of kindness that go towards making a happy life.
Think when we frown upon one of the household. band,
who would give their life, if need be, for our pleasure, and
turn with a sweet smile and pleasant word for the stranger
the friend of an hour, who would care not into what
depths of misery we might be plunged!

THU LUCKY AND UNLUCKY GIRL,
Some girls seem to be naturally lucky, while others  are
too unlucky for words.   There doesn't   appear to  be a
happy medium between the two at all, unless it is that girl
who has good luck one day and bad luck the next.
Everything the lucky girl undertakes turns out just
right, Everything the unlucky girl turns her hand to
culminates in a disappointing fizzle. The lucky girl will
give a little luncheon and without apparent effort on her
part, the affair will go off splendidly. The unlucky girl
tries a less informal affair and her woes are simply numberless. The ices melt, the coffee is too weak, the cakes
never arrive at all, and the salad comes on the table minus
the dressing. Half the invitations were never'received,
half the people who get theirs send regrets and those who
arrive on the scene are grumpy because a rain storm comes
up and deluges their best gowns. The banquet lamps re
fuse to give light and the flowers fade as soon as they
possible can. The unlucky girl goes off into a far away
corner and weeps a tear or two and then wonders whether
it was the opal ring that brought it all on or whether it
was because she got out of the wrong side of the bed that
morning.
The trials of the unlucky girl cannot be enumerated.
She falls down stairs at the slightest provocation. If
anyone in a crowd of 700 is doomed to get her breath
crushed out it is the unlucky girlr~ She misses- trains - on
general principals and loses tortoiseshell. hair pins, belt
buckles, hat pins, gloves, handkerchiefs, pocket-books and
rings. She can't help it. She thinks she is doomed to
bump into disappointments at every corner, and, to tell
the truth she'd be rather disappointed if she didn't.

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 flush days oi
Sandon; how it ramed in
New Denver  long  after
Noah was dead;  Iowa
/parson took a  drink  at
Bear Lake in early days ;
, how justice was dealt in
KaBlofin '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 nmner-
��� ons to mention. Send for
one before it is too late.
Tfhe price~ is "26 cents,
postpaid to any part of the ���
world. Address all letters to

He Does Not Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself has said:
'My trade of late is getting bad.
I'll try another ten-inch a��L t"
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 rade sound
Disturb his solitude profound,
Here let him lie in calm repose,
Unsought except by men lie 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 loss
Place on a stone a wreath of moss,
And on a stone above "Here lies
A fossil, who did not advertise."

On Thursday last, May 7th, the
Opera House (kindly lent for the
occasion by Mr. T. R. Hanson)
was filled by a goodly audience
which applauded an excellent programme from start to finish.
"Talent from Greenwood" was the
principal attraction, Messrs. C. B.
Winter, Parker and Unrnell are a
host in themselves and fully maintained an established reputation.
It was real fun without vulgarity.
Practically every item was honored
wifeh an encore. Mr. Burnell's
versality, Mr. Parker's clear enunciation and Mr. Winter's genial
mannerisms were evident in all
they did. The trio in which they
took part would have done credit
to a first class vaudeville show,
and Mr. Burnell's assorted waistcoats caused much amusement.
Mr. Ewing waB in great voice,
iu his song "When Dreams Come
True" and other items, and Mrs.
Oliver sang not only in good style,
but accompanied in her usual easy
manner���a boon which artists
know how to appreciate. Mr.
Burn ell sang "Looks Something
Like The Cat" and "I've Got To
See The Minstrel Show" and was
especially clever in ''Dago," a
song of real merit. Mr. Parker's
songs were "Who Were You With
Last Night" and "Long Arm."
Mr. Winter's recital of the funny
things that happened ''When
Father Laid The Carpet On The
Stairs," was only excelled by the
capital song which displayed the
admirable "Presence of Mind"
that we usually associate with the
phlegmatic Anglo-Saxon. As encores the audience was favored
with "Sandy Mcintosh" and
"She's The Lass For Me" which
bore the impress of the creations of
Harry Lauder. Messrs. Parker
and Wiuter's Banjo duet was admirably rendered, and much
amusement was caused by the accident to Mr. "Winter's instrument;
an accident which could not be repaired by Mr. Hanson's timely and
impromptu ambulance first aid.
Fencing wire is not an admirable
substitute for a broken string, but
the kindly action was such as
would come spontaneously to one
of Tom's largeness of heart. Needless to say, the incident drew tears
from the more susceptible portion
of the audience.
Other pleasing items were Bongs
by Miss Gane, who was greatly
applauded, Mr. Bock, Joe Hardin
("All Hands on Deck") and a
duet from Mrs. Oliver and Mr.
Ewing. The Bev. A. M. Lloyd's
violin solos were a Scotch selection,
A Fragment of the Kreutzer Sonata and "Simple Aven." Mr.
Harold Hodder presided, and the
Bev. A. M. Lloyd in thanking
Mr. Hanson and the Greenwood
contingent for their very generous
help, all kind friends,, who had donated refreshments and the audience for their presence and patronage, laid stresa rather on the social
value of such entertainments, than
on any financial considerations.
The usual dance followed and
was much enjoyed, and when the
gathering dispersed at 3 a.m.
All agreed that an agreeable evening had been spent. As to the concert itself a recent visitor from the
old conntry .aid it was the best
country concert he had ever attended.
We must not forget to add that
Mrs. Marcon kindly came with the
Greenwood party and rendered
some accompaniments in good
style.

R. A. Lambert, the well known
placer mining man and a member
of the Golden Gate Syndicate operating at Granite creek, recently
inspected the dam and found it in
good shape for the placer mining
he will undertake after the high
water. As the snowfall was light
last winter, Mr. Lambert anticipates low high water and believes
the annual rise in the creeks and
rivers will be sooner than usual,
early in May instead of June.
During the past winter Oleson
Bros, and Carlson have driven a
tunel 300 feet long in solid rock,
which will enable sluicing to begin
as the water subsides to its normal
stage. Tho Syndicate owns a
placer lease covering 1 -A- miles of
Granite creek near the north Fork
and about three miles from the
Granite Creek post oilico and min-
ing.camp. Mr. Lambert shows a
number of five and ten dollar nuggets which he recovered last fall
from the creek bed, besides saving
fine gold and platinum. In the
early days platinum and gold nuggets were plentiful in Granite
Creek, some being worth over a
hundred dollars. For his fine aud
plucky fight against natural difficulties for the past several years,
Mr. Lambert seems now about to
be rewarded deserviugly and everyone hopes in unstinted measures.
The Golden Gate Syndicate have a
property that is undoubtedly rich,
the proof of which lies in the big
values taken in the great gold
stampede of some 25 years ago,
There are, no doubt, many such
placer propositions in this district
which only require experience and
capital to develop.���Similkameen

A few men have been at work on
the Society Girl mine near Moyie
this rpring in another endeavor to
locate the ore body which the
owners are confident exists there.
The property adjoins the St.
Eugene mine, owned by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
It has for years been operated by
working miners and prospectors,
who have taken their pay largely
in Bhares of the company, so Nthat
the enterprise has been much in
the nature of a miner's co-operative partnership. About $50,000
has been spent on development,
and the value of the ore shipped
would probably amount to half
that much. The stock is held by
many persons in various parts of
the province, and has been up to
as high as 4-.0 cents a share .���

FEEBLE OLD PEOPLE
Are Told How to Regain
Strength and Vigor.
As one grows old the waste of* the
system becomes more rapid than repair, the organs act more slowly and
less effectively than In youth, the circulation is poor, the blood thin and
digestion weak.
Vinol, our delicious cod llrer and
Iron tonic without oil la the ideal
streagthener and body-builder for old
folks, for it contains the very elements
needed to rebuild wasting tissues and
replace weakness with strength. Vinol
also fortifies the system against colds
and thus prevents pneumonia.
Mrs. Mary Ivey, of Columbus, Ga.,
says:;; "If people only knew the good
Vlnol does old people,; I: am sure yoa
would be unable to supply the demand. I never took anything before
that did me so much good as Vlnol.
It is the finest tonic and strength
creator I ever used In my life."
If Vinol fails to build up the feeble,
old people, and create strength we
win return your money.
