We touch one another in all
life's associations. We impress
more or less all mth whom we
come in contact. In the home, in
society, in business, and in church
we leave onr mark. It becomes
as all, then, to inquire what kind
of an impression we are making
npon childhood and manhood in
onr several spheres of influence.
Is it for good or for evil? If for
good, then onr life is worth the
living; if for evil, then it is a failure. A trae and successful life is
one the touch of which npon others
is quickening, wholesome, purify-
ing and benefident.

The    Province    assays   George
Bury as follows:
"The genial vice-president; despite the added cares of his new
office with jurisdiction over the
entire system, looks' younger and
brighter than ever. His long sojourn in the west made him a confirmed optimist. This quality is
reflected in his buoyant personality
and by the enthusiastic manner in
which he talks about Western
Canada. Mr. Bury is imbued
with that virile spirit and firm
grasp ot essentials that has characterized him throughout his spectacular rise in the railway world.
A young man yet he is recogoized
as one of the leading railway experts on the continent. A profound thinker and student of economics his opinion and analysis of
conditions is always received with
interest. Of magnetic personality
and great courage the vice-president faces the fresh problems which
are constantly arising in connection with the great system of which
he is the chief operating executive,
with confidence."
Western Float
Big Nuggets
The following is from the Calgary News-Telegram: "Because
he is not as young as he used to
be, Mr. Pat Burns, cattle king and
philanthropist, is not able to go to
the front and do his 'little bit,' but
he is doing the next best thing.
He has given a machine gun for
the use of the soldier boys from
Calgvy and many a Calgary wife
and mother will bless the man
who has, with a handsome-donation, started the fund that is designed to safeguard the lives of the
heroes in khaki."
The largest mass of gold' ever
found free from quartz, of which
there is any record, was that taken
out of the Byer & Haltman mine,

The Welcome Stranger nugget
was found on Mt. Moliagel, Australia, February9, 1869. It weighed 190 pounds and was valued at

was found _at Bakery Hill, Australia, June 9, 1859. It weighed
184 pounds 9 ounces, and was
valued at $44,356.
The-.nugget found August 18,
1866, in the Monumental quartz
mine, twelve miles north of Dow-
nieville, Sierra County, California,
was the largest piece of gold ever
found in the state up to that date.
It weighed 1,142.25 ounces or 95��
pounds, cleaned it was worth $21,-
156,52. It was found iu decomposed quartz twenty-five feet from
the surface. A pocket was discovered in the Bonanza mine at
Sonora, Tuolumne County, California, in the early days of that
mine, about 350 feet from the surface. This pocket produced $360-,

The proud father, to whom a
college education had been denied,
met his daughter at the train on
her return from college.
"But, Helen," he said, "aren't

"Yes, Dad," she replied, "I
weigh one hundred and forty
pounds stripped for 'gym.' "
The father looked dazed for a
moment and then demanded:

if Miss Billy could eing that song a

city this week that James H. McNeil had died in Vancouver on the
7th inBt. The late Mr. McNeil was
an old-timer of the Boundary district, having been engaged in business in this city and Greenwood

Oil in B. C.
Conditions at the B, O. Oil
Fields well on the west coast of
Graham Island, are in snch a critical state at the present time that
Mr. A. A. McPhail, superintendent
of the property,- and Mr.Frank
Egan, the head driller, have come
to the city for expert advice as to
the next move to be made in the
development of the property.
At the present time the casing
hangs free within fifteen feet of
the bottom of the hole and the hole
is drilled to a calibre which will
permit the casing to be dropped if
this is deemed advisable. Meanwhile, the eas pressure and volume
of oil flowing out on top of the
water which exudes from the well,
has been growing daily very much
stronger. It was this fact that determined Mr. McPhail to come to
the city for expert advice. The
oil, which is coming out of the
well, is much greater in volume
than the oil contents of the shale
through which the drill is passing,
showing that the oil ib being driven
up through minute seams in the
rock below the hole by gas pressure.
Another oil drill is going to
Graham bland. The English
eyndicate that has been boring for
coal with considerable success at
some distance from Lawn Hill,
found that the diamond drill core
showed it was passing through oil
shale and it is reported therefor
that the syndicate has decided to
change plans on the immediate
ground and sink a well for oil.���'

This is the property which in the

bonders laughed at the development which had been done. This

Cars were spotted at the Lucky
Jim siding on Friday for the loading of zinc ore to be shipped to the
other side and it is likely that a
quantity of concentrating ore will
soon be moved to the Ivanhoe concentrator to be treated. Last week
the construction of a hoist to get
the ore up to to the concentrator
was commenced.
A recent shipment from 12-
Mile was made by Scott Thorn-
berg, consisting of over seven tonB
of ore from the Helen. This property was developed a little by
English brothers, but apparently
the ore body opened up and which
had an encouraging appearance,
was not much more than a "blow-
out,"as it did not hold.
At the present time S. J. Tow-
good's pack train is bringing down

from the point where the long

which is located at Cody, a short
distance above Sandon. When
reached by the long tunnel, the
vein was found to be some sixteen
feet wide, strongly mineralized,
but not, carrying any ore body at
the point of contact. The indications are that ore will be picked
up at no distant date by drifts now
being run both ways, and it is intended also to uprais.. and tap the
upper workings of the mine. The

promising. The big crosscut is

As is a-matter of common knowledge, this disease is spread by the
scattering of the eggs of the worm
in human excreta over- the surface
of the ground. Here, after the
first warm rain, they hatch into
larvae, or tiny microscopic worm-
lets, barely visible to the naked
eye against a good light, and wriggle about until they can get on the
skin of a naked human-foot; where
they- proceed to- bore their way
through the thin skin in the folds
between the toes into a surface
blood vessel or capillary. This
boring is an intensely irritating
process and gives rise to a burning,
itching, torturing eruption on the
feet; known as ground itch;
"dobie', itch, night itch, dew itch,
poison ivy, and so on.
Once in the blood vessels, the
wormlets are carried by the blood
stream to the heart, and from the
heart are pumped into the lungs.
When they reach the capillaries in
the lungs they wake up and bore
their way Oat again from the blood
vessels into one of the smaller air
tubes.v Tip this, having now become full grown worms nearly
