Stomach Trouble
Many people are troubled with
sour stomachs. While *ny alkaline drag and ordinary baking
soda, or bicarbonate of soda will
neutralize the excess acid and relieve the symptons of stomach
over-acidity, to reach the real
cause of the disorder and avoid
the evil effect, the food must be
changed. To correct; an' over acid
stomach, coffee, sweets and condiments must be omitted from the
diet. Futhermore, overeating of
breads, cereils aad potatoes must
be avoided. In order that this
class of food will not fervent, but
will digest quickly, dry crisp,
breakfast foods should take the
place of those that are soggy and
pasty; potatoes should be either,
baked or boiled, not fried; crisp
hard toast should take the place of
hot cakes in fact, it is well feo toast
all bread; fresh bread is fall of
yeast germs, which go on fermenting in the stomach and form the
acids which cause the over-acid
stomach.

Rock Creek Concert
Tbe chief attraction  of the musical programme arranged by the
Rev. A. M. Lloyd and Mrs. Lloyd
at tbe social gathering on Friday,
Nov. 5th, was a Japanese Operetta
"Sunrise Land."    The local children were assisted by  Mrs.  A. M.
Lloyd (who took  the place of Victoria Shillcock,  indisposed  at the
last   moment)    and   Mr.   Julian.
Despite the prevailing sickness a
very good audience waB highly entertained by the mirth provoking
dialogue, which dealt severe blows
afe English  Philistinism,   with   its
dull homes and  hpavy   furniture,
and  made us laugh at fehe subtle
humours of indigestion, black umbrellas, schoolboy slang and other
things "brought on by the weather."   To some extent the irionies
of Mr. W. S. Gilbert in the "Mikado" are avenged.
The elocution and singing of
Mrs. A. M. Lloyd in the. principal
role (Lotus Blossom) were alone
sufficient to ensure the success of
the play, for the management of
which she was responsible, ably
assisted by Mr, Longhursfe and Mr.
Julian. Maud and Jean Richter
(as Apple .Blossom and Cherry
Blossom) surprised us all by the
excellent way in which they spoke
tbir parts and danced, a costume
dance and. a pretty 'Fan Dance'
both being much admired. Appropriate costumes, umbrellas and
scenery added to the charm of the
production. A very pretty item
was the action song and chorus
"Fragrant Tea," bufe the most
popular was an interlude, in which
Ivy Ingram and-Sylvia Price in
the costume of juvenile Jack Tars,
danced fehe hornpipe. In addition
to encore this item was repeated
later in the,evening by special re-
,_q-aest. ,-__.. 's_^<��,_t._'_._J.,-/.___". ..-._._._..,.   "
Mr. Julian (whose moustache
was much admired) introduced a
sentimental element in his wooing
of Lotus Blossom, in the part of
Sang Toy, on furlough from the
"front", but whether from -somewhere in Japan' or 'in France' we
did not quite gather. Anyway he
made tbe mosfe'of his time and got
'prrader' in five minutes than most
amourous swains get in as many
years.
Ivy 'Ingram, Sylvia P_iee and
Winifried Whiting were charming
little Geishas, whilst Ellen Kerr,
Mary Kerr, Florence Jupp and
Evelyn O'Donnell were pretty little
'Ogo-Bogos,' nursing their Jap
Dolls and sewing away quite unconcernedly. " Dolly" Pettendrigh
(Yum-Yum,) Gporge Whiting
(Fightee-fightee), and Priscilla
Kerr (Sing-sing) bad little to do,
but did it very well.
Some of the above juveniles also
took pare in a fairy scene, in the
second part which was encored and
soDgs were given by Miss Gane
and Mr. Julian and the latter
gentleman joined Mrs. A. M.
Lloyd in the well-known duet
"Where Are You Going To My
Pretty Maid?" In response 10 an
encore they gave "Madam Will
You Walk." Once ur>re Mr.
Julian i^as a most successful wooer,
between which his singing and the
wonderful moustache d vided the
honours.
Mr. Jim Bush's orchestra very
generously played for the dance
that followed and thanks are also
due to Mr. and Mrs. S;��iu Larsen
for their valuable assist;iuce and
the loan of the hall: also to those
who kindly donated refreshments.
About $25 profit should result.
Mr. James Kerr, J. P presided
and recited classical p >etry with
his usual ability. Hre. A. M.
Lloyd will introduce some of the
above items in the Red Cross Concert on Dec. 10; for the arrangement of which she i? responsible.

. A_:MTT THE DOUKS
....cknti.y, it has been reported
in the pref-'H nnd otherwise, that
���c ...<> Doukhobor girls around
nii.ud Forks had been working for
o.i.-or fanne..., and not giving their
v,,:,;ef-' to the Doukhobor Society.
Tl.'.' story goes that when Peter
Ye regit) found tbis out, he had
-ev.Tal of the girls taken into a
bavn, where they were stripped
-ifuT wh.eb he lashed them with a
whip until tbe blood came. If
_���.__.. be true" it can only be confirmed by those who saw or felt the
performance. Veregln, as master
of those people has tt perfect legal
right to use force as a means to
correct their errors of conduct,
when said force is used in a just
and reasonable manner. To strip
and whip females until the blood
came would not be considered in a
court of law, as a just and reasonable maimer of forceful correction.
Although the Doukhobors arcprac-
tV.-llj' plavet. to Veregin.this pro-
���vinee does not favor Simon Legrccs.
The people who circulate these
sloiies about Veregin, should be
rb!.. to prove them, or keep their
months shut. They should lay
im formation with tho police, call
tlieir witnesses and have the mat-
t.'r investigated in the court. It
__���- unjust and slanderous to circulate such.stories about Veregin, or
any other man, unless they can be
proven. It is up to the people
who have made these charges
against Veregin to probe the matter to a liuisb, or withdraw their
statements through the press. We
must b ive fair play under the British flag. The police iu the Boundary ure ever on the alert to pie-
s.erve law ancVorder, but they must
have something more tangible to
work upon than street talk, or the
.���.tporings of idle and envious
minds. If Veregin is a monster,
pro re it, but do not dream it.

The  Kaiser pays his soldiers a
e._. a day, and even  that may be
aken for war purposes.    TheBrit-
sb rate of pay looks very Jarge by
���ornpanson.     Tbe   difference  explains the prodigious cofefc of Brit-
-b   armies.     Compared  with  the
Merm.au   soldier "Tommy"   is   a

after a rather lengthy time of inactivity at the concentrating mill;
the continuance of work at ' the
Wonderful; tho very satisfactory
showing the. Surprise has made,
its output of ore this year have
been greater probably than in all
other years combined; the persistence displayed in doing deep level
development work on the Noble
Five group of mines; the preparation at tho Noonday for further
underground work and ore production; the drifting on tbe vein
of tho fraction thafe adjoins the old
Freddie Lee property, and tbe nice
looking galena ore that is being
taken out, though as yet nob in
considerable quantity; the opening
of more ore on the Eeco, and the
high g.iade of that recently shipped
from tlie Mountain Con; and, generally, the spirit of confident hopefulness that central iSlocan is on
cbe eve of better times than ife has
experienced for years.
Information received concerning the North Fork of Carpenter
creek was that one car of high-
grade antimony ore from the Alps-
Alturus property had been shipped
to England, and that another, carload is at Three Forks to be shipped after receipt of advices relative to results from fehe first shipments. The recent find of dry
silver ore on the Black Grouse
claim above Three Forks is attracting attention. Prospecting work
is being done on other claims in
this region.
Some 1200 sacks of ore have
been taken out by Thos. Avison,
J. II. Cory and Louis Scaia at fehe
Idabo-Alamo group, mostly from
the Alamo, iu which work has
lately been raising from the No. 3
level and stopiug ore above it. It-
is hoped the English company
owning tbis property will shortly
do more development work on the
Idaho.
Mr. Jacobs was much pleased
feo find tho Roseberry concentrating
mill in operation, and he commended the enterprise of J. P. Keane
in securing it and putting ife into
running "order so soon after the
burning of the Ivanhoe mill at
Sandon had "upset his business
arrangements in connection with
the concentration of custom ores.
The mill is concentrating zinc-lead
ore from the Lucky Jim mine and
is making a good saving and turning oub a product averaging 42 per
cent zinc and better. Tho first
car of concentrates was loaded and
billed out last Saturday.���E.

Ideas of a Plain Man
Magnesite in B. C.
Magnesite, one of the mosfe valuable of the non-metallic minerals,
ha3 been found in large quantities
along tbe shore of Lake Atlin, in
the northeastern part of British
Columbia, according to a consular
report. Seven claims have been
located by Vancouver parties, and
plans are being made for working
tho deposits. This ore is shown
by analysis .to be exceptionally
pure, running as high as 98 per
cent, in magnesium carbonate.
The world's supply has so far
come from California, Greece and
Austria. On account Of fehe war
the latter source is cufe off, and
siuce this was the most important,
there is an extraordinary .demand
for the mineral, which British Columbia will soon be in a position
to supply.
Magnesite consists of magnesia,
48 per per cent., and carbon
dioxide, 52 per cen��., and UBed,
after .'calcination,..feo make bricks,
for refactory furnace lining, non-
condo.tive covering for steam
pipes, boilers, etc. . Magnesium
salts, especially tbe sulphates, are
used in the arts and in medicines,
also in fehe paper industry and in
connection with the pulp industry
of this province. This new discovery may prove feo be of special
value, since the chief value of the
spruce forests in British Columbia]
is in their paper making possibil- J
In our weak and unworthy
moments we all want to "revert to
type." We are tired of progress
and want to degenerate. We are
weary of "climbing up Zion'e hill"
and want to let go and toboggan to
fehe bottom.
Life is too much for us. Being
good is too strenuous. We wouldn't
admit for the world, bub we are
even tired of being respectable,
and envy the drunkard, the tramp
and the women of  fehe half-world.
As for me, in these moments of
naughtiness, whab I would like to
be is the proprietor of one of those
little little German drinking places
with tvoes in boxes before men.
Just to sit through the long summer days in the shade and think
of nothing but eating and drinking.
Or else I should like my wife to
be a milliner making euough.money
to keep me in idleness, so thafe I
should have nothing to do but to
go to fehe postoffice, discuss politics
and attend lodges.
Or, besb of all, would ife not bo
fine to be a large round hog and
lie all day in a cool puddle under
a locust tree?
Come,' let us go to the dogs.���
