HOCKEY DANCE.
While there were not so many
persona on the floor, as was the case
at the laBt dance, the hockey dance
held in the Old Masonic Hall on
Tuesday night was a complete success and'great credit is due the
committee in charge. AU went
merrily oa until nearly 3 a.m. The
floor was in good shape and excellent music came from McKays's
oreheetra. When the. ball opened
at 9 o'clock the scene was one rarely seen in Greenwood. The throng
of gaily and beautifully gowned
women with .their more sombre
hued partners, presented an effective picture. The thanks of the
committee, the dancers and the
public is due to Mr. W. C. Arthurs,
of the Vienna Bakery, who so generously donated the dainty supper,
without which the affair would not
have been near so enjoyable.

Various prophets and heroes are

was caught up by "a chariot of

into heaven."
Whether these be actual facts or
parables, it is something that men
can't conceive so great a victory of

of humiliation and defeat in the
deathbed, no matter how nobly
faced. . To waste, and gasp, aud
sink, aud finally lie cold aud conquered, casts a hue of sadness over
this mortal career.
In all the realm of history and
of fiction, men have never risen to
a higher pitch of dramatic power,
or fancied a more moving spectacle, than that of two ancient
prophets, walking along and talking, aud one of them being caught
up in a roar of wind and flame and
phantom horses, and the other crying out, "My father, my father,
the chariot of Israel, aud the horseman thereof I"
And, in a way, does not he,

great principles, wrapped in great
ideas, enflamed by great emotions,
really go np in a whirlwind? Can

Dr. Frank Crane.
Open Lands
Victoria, B.C., March 18.���Hon.
Wm. B. Ross, Minister of Lands,
has announced that a number of
tracts of logged-ofi lands available
for agriculture in East Kootenay
will be open for pre-emption on
May 1st. They are in Cranbrook
and Fernie divisions, and will be
opened at the offices of the Government Agents in the respective
districte. The lands are on expired timber licences which come
under reserve antomafcicaUy.
When the timber ia logged and be
ing fonnd suitable for agriculture
they are being opened to settlement.
The districts in which the greater portion of the lots lie are well
supplied by   transportation   facilities; both railroads and  highways
and markets are in close proximity.
The lots in the Cranbrook  district
are in the vicinity of several railways and good roads are found in
the district.   The Crows Nest Pass
branch of   the   Canadian   Pacific
Railway,  which leaves  tbe main
line at Medicine Hat and runs by
way of Fernie, Cranbrook, Nelson,
and the Kootenay Lakes to meet
the main line again at Revelstoke.
has a branch running from Cranbrook through Marysville to Kim-
berley, where the North Star and
Sullivan mines are- located, this
branch passes throngb some of the
lots.   The Kootenay Central Bail-
way, which also traverses some of
the lots, is being built to connect
the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway at  Golden  with the
Crows Nest Pass branch, its right-
of-way following the valley of the
Kootenay.    The Great Northern
Railway, which crosses the International    Boundary    from    the
United States at   Gateway,   continues to the coal-mines at Fernie
and Michel, is also close to some of
the groups of lots.
Until recently the development
of the timber resources���which
still are very rich��� oecnpied attention to the exclusion of agricultural
pursuits in this part of the province, and farms have not been
sufficiently developed to reach
their maximum of productiveness;
but it has been satisfactorily
demonstrated that the ordinary
field crops, grains, vegetables, and
fruits of the best qnailty can be
grown. The Hamilton Bros, and
F.. H. Worthington have good
orchards at Cranbrook. The clearing of the^land has given a stimulus to agriculture, and as the
loggers have removed the timber
crop there has been a demand fcr
the logged-over lands. The timber
licences, which automatically come
under reserve as the licences lapse,
were accordingly surveyed and
subdivided, and are now being
opened to pre-emptors.
The   group nearest  Cranbrook
are subdivisions of former timber
licences on the south of St. Mary's
river, the nearest of the lots to
Cranbrook   being no   more  than
three miles from that city.   They
reach   to St.  Mary's river.    The
Cranbrook-Kimberley branch railroad runs through some of the lots,
and the government  wagon-road
between Cranbrook,  Perry Creek,
and Marysville also extend through
the group.     The greater portion
lies   between  Joseph Creek  and
Perry Creek, a group of eight lying east from the former, reaching
to within half a mile of St. Mary's
river.   The land has been logged
off and surveyed into blocks ranging in extent from 40 to 160 acres.
Northward from five miles northwest of the group  south  of St.
Mary's river is another block of
lots on the east of the Cranbrook-
Kimberely railroad.   These  lots,
subdivisions    of   former   timber
m
licences which have been logged
off, lie to the northeast of Marysville, at the junction of Mark
creek and St. Mary's river. Luke
creek which joins St. Mary's river
opposite Perry creek, runs through
the center of this group, and logging railroads are found on some
of the lots which could easily be
converted into wagon roads.
A mile north of this group is
another block of lots, about a mile
and a half east of Kimberley,
where the North Star and Snlllvan
mines are located. About three or
four miles from Fort Steele three
lota have been subdivided on logged
off lands and north-west of Waldo
Station, on the Great Northern
Railroad, which crosses the International Boundary at Gateway to
connect  with  the coal-mines  at
Fernie and Michel by way of the
Kootenay Valley, and on the west
side of the Kootenay river, is a
group of forty two lots in size from
40 acres upwards.
The bulk of the lots in the Fernie
Land Recording District, for which

GREENWOOD,  . . . . B. C.
At the present moment there is
no. a creed of ethics which is not
shaken, not an accredited dogma
of rationalism which is not shown
to be questionable,  not a received
tradition   of    materialism   whioh
does not threaten to dissolve.    It
is not that science and philosophy
have   followed   the   wrong   path.
Amid their own  tribulations and
martyrdoms they have held inexorably to the truth as far as they
could see it;  bnt their glimpses of
truth are leading them  to a conclusion that they did not forsee.
They placed their faith in the fact,
as we may say,  and now the fact
is failing   them.     Their   matter,
their molecules,  their first  principles are literally opening before
them   infinite   gates   into���what
shall   we  say?     Wherever  they
thought they had a   fundamental
fact,  a basis for their systems of
thought, they have only���on every
side���an inmeasurable aud incomprehensible   miracle.     On   every
side, more silently,  perhaps,  than
in temples made with hands, but
not less reverently, all true men of
science are bowing the head.   The
old kind of  materialistic science
has no meaning now, except in the
fuddled brains produced by half
knowledge  and cheap education.
There is no such thing as   "atheism"  except on the tubs of Hyde
Park, and even there it is only a
piteous cry   for   the light.     The
strongest part of our philosophy
today is its unconscious poetry.���
Alfred tNoyes.

strengthen the nerves and muscles oi" the
bowels and promptly relieve constipation,
lielping to overcome its cause, and'at the
same time removing the cause ot sick
headaches, biliousness, bad breath, nervousness and other ills caused by inactive
bowels. In vest pocket tin boxes; ioc,

We believe Rexall Ol.-ve Oil Emulsion
is the best remedy made for toning the
nerves, enriching the 1>iood, buildiun up
wasted tissues, renewing liealth, strength
and energy���the best medicine you can
use if you are run down, tired out, nervous and debilitated, no matter what the
cause. It doesn't depend for its good
effect upon . alcohol or habit forming
drugs, because it contains none. It may
not make you feel better in a few hours,
but it will make you feel better we are
sure, just as soon as the tonic and food
properties it contains have a chance to
get into the blood axid, through the blood
into the rest of the system. Pure Olive
Oil and the Hypophosphites have long
been endorsed by successful physicians,
"but here, for the first time, they are combined into one preparation which, as a
nerve food and a builder of strength aud
health, we believe, has no equal.
If you don't feel well, begin taking
Rexall Olive oil Emulsion today, and
build your health and strengthen your
system against more serious illness. To
convalescents, old people, puny children
and all others who are weak, run-down
or ailing, We offer Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion witto our personal promise that, if it
doesn't make you well and strong again,
it will cost you nothing. If we didn't
have the utmost faith in it, we wouldn't
offer it with this guarantee, nor even
recommend it to you, "We are sure that
once you have used it you will recommend it no your friends, and thank us
for having recommended it'to you. Sold
only at the more than 7,oo0 Rexall
Stores, and in this town only by us. $1.00

How often is a fine nature warped, a really good disposition vspoiled by tbe omission of a few timely words of encouragement.    A child receiving nothing-  but  blame  and
constant scolding, in time becomes deaf to correction, sullen and defiant, and in the end one of those children who
never hears or heeds.    On the  other hand a child that is|
occasionally encouraged, is proud of pleasing another, con*
sequently is pleased with himself and urged to renew exertions to gain  a  repetition of that praise so dear to the
human heart, be that heart young or old,
*      *    *
A model husband may be a day laborer, who returns to
his home at night with a hard earned dollar clasped in
his honest hand, aud adds it to the family fund to be used
to provide necessary comforts for the family. He shaves
faithfully with his wife whatever he may earn by trade or
profession. When business matters perplex he does hot
go home with a woeful tale of his hardships and turn the
bright side of his character to his associates, but he comes
into his home with a cheerful face that inspires his wife
with new courage after a day of perplexing duties . which
women alone have to meet, and in their monotony become
distasteful to the most patient of them.
*     *     *
The ethics ot home correspond in a large measure with
ethics of society, All these virtues which are crowned
jewels of the highest civilization have their inception in
the home. The glory and charm of womanhood and manhood, the nicest character which give distinctiveness and
beauty to childhood and youth, the adjustments of personality and domestic relations within the home, the education
of the impulses, budding susceptibilities and growing
powers of children, all fall within the powers of home ethics,
where else .can the abstract virtues of practical duties ��� be
more forcibly disclosed. Honesty, fidelity to trusts, truthfulness true dignity, the lesser virtues as well as the finer
and nobler issues of life, must revert to home training for
their proper and lasting inculcation.

Relief in Vinol.
Did you ever co_g_- for a week?
Then just thLak how distressing it
must be to have a cough, hang on for
two years.
Mrs. D. A. McGee, Waycross, Ga.,
says: "I had a very heavy cold
which settled into a chronic cough
which kept me awake nights for fully
two years, and felt tired all the time
The effect of taking your cod liver
and iron remedy, Vinol, is that my
cough is gone. I caot now get a good
night's rest and I feel much stronger
in every way.   I am 74 years old."
It is the combined action of the
medicinal elements cl the cods' llv-'
ers aided -by th.e blood-making and
strength-creating iiroperties of tonic
iron which makes Vinol so efficient
for chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis���at the same time building up
the weakened, run.-down, systeifa.
Try a bottle of Vinol with, the understanding that your money will be
returned if It does not help you.

John Hunt came down from the
Broken Hill mine on Wednesday
and reports very satisfactory development work on fehe property.
The ore encountered in the tunnels is of a much higher grade than
the surface indicated. Just what
the azzays will average Mr. Httnt
will learn when  he  reaches   the.
coast.    Upon  reaching town  Mr. t   H< Baster'  formerly oI Whifee-
horse,  is   operating   a  hardware
A report from the new camp
which came out by Cordova is as
follows:
The population of this camp and
vicinity is about 600.
M. R. Healey, formerly United
States commissioner at Chisana,
has a number of claims here, and
will shortly open up a mining and
brokerage business.
Hunt ordered a ton of provisions
Bent to the mine, and has men at
work ou the trail shoveling snow.
Upon his return from the coast,
which will be sometime next week,
lie will at once resume work on fehe
property on a more extensive scale
than heretofore, the present showings having convinced the owners
that tbe property will develop into
a mine of huge proportions. There
is 90 feet of ore in sight���not dykes
of semi-mineralized country rock
interlaced with regular ore veins���
but 90 feet of solid ore that is increasing in value with depth. Unlike most other Bridge river properties, it is base, and will neces-
siate a reduction plant of some
magnitude to treat the ore successfully. Tb.6 mine is virtually a
quarry, and bo far as we have been
able to learn, is in the hands of
men quite capable, financially, of
developing the proposition to a
successful issue.���Lillooet Prospector.
At the annual gathering in Vancouver of the western branch of the
Canadian Mining Institute, a very
important address was that of the
chairman, W. J. Sutton, who
spoke very comprehensively and
in an optimistic vein on mining in
British Columbia and its future
prospects.    He said:
"As is well kuown, British Columbia possesses large and varied
mineral resources. The minerals
mined in the province on a commercial scale are gold, silver, copper, zinc, coal and building stone
and other structural materials.
Some of these minerals occur in
immense quantities, so that the
latent possibilities of the mining
industry of the province are very
���great.
"British Columbia's favorable
position as part of the great Cor-
dilleran belt, in regard to its mineral resources is given prominence
in Geology and Economic Minerals
of Canada, published by the geological survey branch of the Canadian department of mines. The
Cordilleran belt in South America,
in Mexico and in the "Western
United States is recognized as one
of the greatest mining regions in
the world, noted principally for it-
wealth in gold copper and lead.
The Cordilleras stand unparalleled
in the world for continuity, extent
and variety of their mineral resources. In Canada and in Alaska
this belt maintains its reputation
although for the greater part un-
prospected. In Canada it has a
length of 1,300 and a width of 400
miles. It is pre-eminently a great
mining region.
"Not only is the Cordilleran belt
rich in metals but it has enormous
resources of coal of excellent quality, varying from lignites to anthracite, which is conveniently distributed. The prospective resources of this belt in Canada may,
therefore, be considered enormous.
Though mostly unprospecfeed, it
has been proved to possess the
greatest coal fields, one of the
greatest copper mines, one of the
greatest silver-lead mines, and two
of the greatest placer-gold camps
in Western America, which is a
region noted for its extraordinary
mineral wealth. In Canada the
region includes all of British Columbia, part of Weatern Alberta,
i_e whole of the Yukon territory
and a large tract of tbe adjacent
"Western portion of the Northwestern territories���an area, in all,
of approximately 600,000 square
miles.''

Beef sells at 40 cents to 75 cents a

On December 19 the first marriage ceremony in the camp was
solemnized. The contracting par

There are about 300 cabins at
Chathenda and vicinity, and many
more are under construction.
The people of this camp are
very much disappointed over the
treatment they are receiving at the
hands of the government in regard
to the way the mail has been
handled between here and McCarthy. There is no regular mail
service here whatever. Theodore
Kettleson, who has been appointed
postmaster, has not yet qualified,
and consequently the mail has to
be handled by the United States
commissioner without compensation therefore, which makes it
very inconvenient for both himself and the public.
Sam Sucklin. formerly of Fairbanks, has erected a large log
building with a plate glass front,

Another Georgia town recently
voted in favor of saloons after a
lively campaign in which considerable feeling was aroused. Said a
citizen in justification of his vote:
"If we are going to stand for our
women folks wearing shadow skirts
and slit skirts and transparent
skirts, and our younger women
learning to dance the boll weevil
wiggle, tbe Texas Tommy Tango,
the bunny hug, the bear dance,
the half centre, the buzzard flop
and the puppy huddle, and so on
down the line, fehes the men folks
might just as well have their
saloons and the whole push go to
hell together."
But it isn't fair to judge a girl
by the company she is oblfged to
to entertain.
(From Merritt Hekald)
Mr. J. B. Jackson who represents the Greenwood Riding in the
Provincial Legislature and who is a
brother of onr Mayor came np from
Victoria on Saturday evening and
spent Sunday in our cifey with his
brother.
Mr. Jackson is well-known
throughout fehe Nicola Valley
having been one of the earliest
settlers to arrive here coming in
the spring of 1882, his brother
Frank of Nicola came in the fall of
the same year.
It is nine years since Mr. Jackson was in the valley long before
Merritt was ever thought of. He
was delighted with our city and
particularly our hotel accommodation and large departmental stores
and the neat manner in which they
were kept. Mr. Jackson predicted
for Merritt one of the brightest
futures of the leading interior
towns.
Mr. Jackson owns a beautiful
ranches on the Kettle river some
two miles from Midway and both
the Kettle Valley Railway and the
V. V. & E. cross his place. The
ranch is devoted pretfey much to
fehe stock industry.
Speaking of many of the important bills that came before the
Honse previous to its prorogation,
the settlement by the Government
of the Kettle Valley Ry and V. V.
& E. question came up and Mr.
Jackson said he thought-the action
of fehe Government was a fair one
to fehe residents of Merritt and that
those people living in fehe Aspen
Grove district can rest assured that
the Government will not lose sight
of the fact that such an important
section as the Aspen Grove will be
given transportation nearly as
quickly as if the Government had
held the Kettle Valley Railway to
their original survey it simply
meant that Merritt would be without railway communication wifeh
the Boundary conntry for some
two years longer, simply because
the lines wonld not be finished be-
fore that time, but wifeh fehe new.
agreement communication would
be had this fall.
Mr, H. S. Cleasby took Mr.
Jackson in his automobile and
shewed him the Valley and Merritt
in particular. Mr. Jackson leaving Merritt for his home on Monday's train where he will give to
bis constituents an accounting of
his stewardship during the past
session.
Mr. Jackson is well known as a
very hard worker and a conscien-
feions representative of his constituents in the House and has the
name for working hard at everything whether on his farm or in
his political duties.
"Good Roads" Jackson would
easily apply to onr Mayor's brother
for the reason he has made a particular aim to obtain grants from
the Government for road improvement in his .constituency and has
succeeded in establishing the finest
and smoothest roads in the interior of British Columbia. A practical farmer himself, he does not
neglect the farming community
and industry throughout his constituency.
We have had the pleasure of
knowing Mr. Jackson for the last
seventeen years and have alwayB
admired his energy, industry and
integrity. The. constituents of the
Greenwood Riding have no cause
to fear that their interests in the
Honse will be neglected whilst Mr.
Jackson represents them.

Better Take the Paper
An exchange gives the lollowiug
accounfe of what happened to a
family too stingy to take their
home paper.   He says:
"We once knew a man who was
too stingy to take the newspaper
in his home town, and alwayB
went over to borrow his neighbor's
paper.
One evening he sent his son over
to borrow fehe paper, while the
son was on the way he ran into a
large stand of bees, and in a few
minutes his face looked like a summer squash.
"Hearing the agonized cries of
the son, the> father ran to his assistance, and in doing so ran into a
b_rb wire fence, cutting a handful
of flesh from his anatomy and ruining a 84 (sale price) pair of trousers.
' 'The old cow took advantage of
the hole iu the fence, got into
the corn field and killed herself
eating green corn. Hearing the
racket, the stingy man's wife ran
out of the house, upsetting a four
gallon churn full of cream into a
basketful! of kittens, drowning the
whole flock, She slipped on the
cream andj]fell downstairs, breaking her leg and a $19 set oP false
teeth. The baby left alone,
crawled through the spilled cieam
into the parlor and ruined a $40
carpet. During the excitement
(he daughter eloped with tbe
hired man, taking the family savings bank with them."

We Know They're Good Delays Are Dangerous Yob Risk No Money
Bex-ll Dyspepsia Tablets, in addifcion
to other ingredients, contain Pepsin and
Bismuth, two great digestive aid- used by
the entire medical profession. Hey

heartburn and distress, stimulate a
healthy secretion of the eastrk juice,

stomach distress promptly, and, used

easy-acting, healthy state. Tbey aid
greatly to promote regular bowel adio-u
Don't neglect indigestion, for it frequently leads to alt sorts of ills and complications. The pain and discomfort is
not the most unfortunate part. The fact
that when the stomach is not acting
right, the material needed to repair the
wastes that are constantly taking place
in the body is not being given to the blood
either in the proper condition or fast
enough is far more serious. Nothing
will cause more trouble than an unhealthy
stomach. The blues, debility, lack of
strength and energy, constipation, bi_-
ioosacsa, headaches and scores of other
serious ailments result from the failure
of the stomach to properly do its work.
