FATAL ACCIDENT.
At the Jewel mine on Tuesday
afternoon, Alex Jordan was blasting three holes at the end of a drift.
At the time Tom Edwards was
100 feet away getting ready to go
out of the mine. Edwards heard
only one shot go off and in company with another miner he returned to see what was the matter.
Then a second shot went off and
blew out their candles. Relighting
their candles they continued their
search for Jordan when the third
hole exploded, killing Edwards
instantly. The other miner escaped uninjured. It was evidently a
premature explosion of the first
hole, for Jordan was found near iG
so badly injured that he died in
three hours. Jordan leaves a wife
and four children, while Edwards
has a sister in England. Both
men had mined in the Boundary
for more than a dozen years. An
inquest is being held as The Ledge

hearty exercise, will perform their
work better and run longer and
more smoothly than if allowed to
become clogged with the rust of indolence regret fear and pessimism.
This is true, because some are old
at 20, others at 30, 40 or 50, while
some are young at 70.

The whole question of the Orient
is a question of Woman. For that

in all the world is society's treatment of Woman.
The rule is this, deducible from
centuries of facts, that in proportion as Woman i_ limited in the
full exercise of her personality, you
find darkness, tyranny, ignorance,
cruelty, injustice and the whole
serpent brood of institutional-Bin
and conservatism; and in proportion as she i_ free, yon find progress in every department of human activity.
Take the Turks. Their women
are things. Families never visit

Talking about early days in Nevada an old timer says to the New
York Mining Age;���"In the flush
days of the old Cometock, when
Reno was the distributing point
for Nevada, and waB therefore
mighty near the centre of the universe, it was a great stage center.
Sixhorse coaches went out at almost any time you wanted to go
and to almost any place. Doc
Benton had a line from Reno to
Carson, running as many stages as
were necessary to accommodate
the public. This was before the
days of the V, & T., but really of
recent years, as compared to the
tale I Btartedto tell. Still it was
of Reno.
"I waB on the stage going up to
Carson in thoBe old days, and when
passing the old Ophir mill up in
Washoe Valley we were held up
by a gang of agents not in the regular employ of Wells-Fargo.
These people used a gun instead of
a lead pencil to do their work.
Among the passengers was Lieutenant Governor Singerland, who
was ex-officio superintendent of
the penitentiary.
' 'There were some sixteen of ub
on the stage, and at the request of
the agents aforesaid, we all got
out and lined up with our backs to
the old board fence around the
Ophir works. While we were
waiting patiently for whatever
might come, a man started from
each end of the row and went
through our pockets, while a few
others stood at the edge of the road
and each amused himself by caressing a shotgun.
"When the gentleman who was
collecting the tariff came to Slinger-
land he passed him without apparently noticing him. Now, Slinger-
land was, while an excellent man,
notoriously financially embarassed.
At the same time it is quite probable that the gentleman who was
doing the internal revenue act was
at one time a convict in the Nevada
pen. Anyway when he came to
Blingerland he passed him up with
out searching him. When the
crowd had been gone throngh one
of the watchers called attention to
the fact that Blingerland had been
overlooked.
"What you givin' me,' said the
searcher, 'Don't you know that is
Blingerland and that he has not
had a cent since he began working
for the state, any more than we
have?"
"Then he came back to Blingerland and put about $5 in his pocket
and .aid;
"Bay, Jim, you're a pretty decent sort of fellow, only you're on
the wrong side of the bars, so when
yon get up to Carson, you take a
drink and pay for it yourself, for
that will sure be a treat to you.'
"Blingerland treated the crowd
when we got into Carson, at the
old Magnolia saloon, and as we all
drank, he said; "Say, boys, that
d������d fool didn't know how near
be was to calling the tnra,"
Timber Royalty
A Washington letter to a number of newspapers in the United
States, prints the following relative
to the recent Timber Royalty Bill
passed at the last session of the
Legislature.
"The Canadian Province of British Columbia is showing the way
to all other   governments in the
matter of doing things for the common people.    The B.C. Legislature
passed  a  law introduced by the
Minister of Lands,   Hon. Wm. R.
Rosb, which assures to the citizens
of that Province an income within
ten years of three millions of dol-
lais a year from  royalties on publicly-owned   timber.     This Act,
according   to   information   which
comes to interested public men in
Washington,    does    for   publicly
owned timber in British Columbia,
what the conservationists,   under
the leadership of Clifford  Pinchot,
have been trying to secure for the
people of the United States in the
matter    of    this  nation's   water
powers.
The Act retains in the Provincial
Government, for the people, the
fee simple title to all timber lands;
it permits the taking of timber
claims one mile square at an
annual rental of 8120 per claim,
and for the payment to the Government of a stumpage price which
rises gradually with the increased
value of timber. Under the old
Act of 1905, the stumpage price
per thousand feet was 50 cents.
The new Act increases it to 75
cents a thousand feet, effective in
1915, and provides that five yearB
later there will be added to tbe
royalty price 25 per cent of the increased value of lumber at that
time above a minimum price of
$18.00 per thousand, each five
years thereafter the same thing
will be done again, the per centage
taken by the Government to increases gradually from 25 to 50 per
cent, the whole arrangement covering a period of -bout 40 years.
This means, first, that the lumberman get a reasonable profit out
of their operations���the Government takes nothing unless the
price is above $18.00 a thousand.
It means further, that the Government, the people, share in the increased value of their timber. It
establishes a great profit-sharing,
co-operative principle, in which
the Government and the timber
Bhall be cut. The people's interest
is protected, and at the same time
lumbermen are encouraged to take
up holdings and develop the timber
industry.
The great lesson for the United
States in this B. C. Royalty Act
lies in the recognition by the Provincial Government that the people should share in the increasing
value of their own property���a
principle which American conservationists under the leadership of
Pinchot, have been and are fighting to have enforced in the devel'
opment and use of public wafeer-
powera in the United States.
First Aid
In order to encourage first aid
work in mines, Hon. Louis Coderre
Minister of Mines, recently donated to the St. John Ambulance
Association a silver trophy for
annual competition among all mine
workers in Canada.
The importance of having all
name employees brained in first aid
is obvious. When an accident
happens in ordinary industrial
occupations, only a short time
elapses before tbe assistance of an
ambulance or surgeon can be obtained, but as mining is carried on
at great depths and distances
underground, the time taken to
obtain proper medical assistance
varies from one hour to three or
four hours.
Trophies in first aid work, for

GUARANTEED RELIEF
FROM ALL BOWEL ILLS
If your bowels are out of order, instead
of using some harsh salt or other physic,
take a Rexall Orderlie tonight, and tomorrow you will feel great. They taste
good and act so easily that there isn't a
particle of griping or purging, nor the
excessive looseness that follows the taking of salts and most pills. They soothe
and strengthen the bowels, promptly relieving the constipation, making it unlikely to occur again.
We don't believe there is another
bowel remedy anywhere near as good,
and at the same time so easy and pleasant
to take as Rexall Orderlies. We know
you will agree with us and believe you
will thank us for telling you about them.
If they don't satisfy yoa in every way,
come back and tell us and we will give
back your money without a word or
question. Yon have no reason to hesitate
when we give you the opportunity, as we
hereby do, to try them at our risk. In
vest pocket tin boxes; roc, 25c, Soc.
You can buy Rexall Orderlies only at
The Rexall Stores, and in this town only
of us. J. I/. White, Druggist, Greenwood, B.C

You know us���your home druggist.
You know we wouldn't guarantee any
remedy to relieve indigestion or dyspepsia, or money back, unless we felt the utmost confidence in that remedy. Therefore, when we offer you Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets with this proof of our faith in
them, it leaves you no room for hesitation or doubt.
The remarkable success of Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets is due to the fact that
they contain, among' other things, Bismuth and Pepsin, two ingredients endorsed by the medical profession as invaluable in the treatment of stomach ills.
They soothe the inflamed stomach, check
heartburn and distress, stimulate the
secretion of gastric juice, aid in rapid and
comfortable digestion of the food and
help to quickly convert it into rich, red
blood In a short time they tend to restore the stomach to a naturally comfortable, easy-acting, healthy state. They
also benefit the bowels,
Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets aie sold only
at the more than 7,ooo Rexall Stores, and
in this town only by us. Three sizes,
25c, 50c and f 1.00. J. I,. "White, Druggist, Greeuwood, B.C.

LOWERY'S CLAIM.
During the 87 months that Lowery'e
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
partly on account of a lazy liver and
partly because it takes a pile of money
to run a paper that is outlawed. Ihere
are still 20 different editions of this con*
denmed journal iu print. Send 10 cents
and get one or $2 and get1 the bunch,

If your child is under weight, listless
ailing, liable to get sick easily, it needs a
medicine to build its weight and strength.
For this purpose there is nothing else we
know of that we can so strongly endorse
as Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion. The remarkable success of this splendid medicine is due to the fact fhat it contains ingredients that tone the nerves, enrich
the blood and furnish to the entire system the strength, weight and health-
building substances it needs. And, it
does all this without injuring the stomach.
In fact, Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion is not
only pleasant to take, but even the most
sensitive stomach is benefited by it, and
the digestion improved. Oil the other
hand, it contains no alcohol or habit-
forming drugs, which most parents object to giving .heir, childrei.. It does its
good work by taking hold of the weakness and builds the body up to its natural
strength, at the same time making it
strong to resist disease.
If Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion doesn't
build your child up, feed the stunted,
punny muscles, and make the little one
lively, strong,- "well, and full of the animal spirit children are meant by nature
to have, come back and tell us and get
your money back. We don't want you
to lose a cent, We think this is no more
than lair, and it leaves you no cause to
hesitate. For old people also���for convalescents���for all who arc nervous, tired
out, run down, no matter what the cause
���we offer Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion
with the same guarantee of entire satisfaction or money back. Sold only at the
7,000 Rexall Store's, and in this town
only by us. $r.oo. J. L. White, Druggist,

This articles of this department have been the very
cream and essence of thought, the very best things are
tersely and beautifully expressed as can be coined out of
the English lauguage.and coming to you every week, ii
saved up for a year, you would have a hatch of the choicest
gems of literature and we believe, the very best and pn_--
est things that can be said in behalf of the home. This is

Hard words, unkind acts may be forgiven, but they may
never be effaced from memory. An injustice that wrongs
or injures or pains a brother, sister or friend stands there
forever. You may atone for it, repent it, try to repair it,
but}'-ou cannot recall it; it is done and can never be helped
though it might have been prevented before it happened..
Many a hasty, inconsiderate act has led to a life sorrow;
many an act, even trivial, has been the occasion of frequent bitter memories for a long lifetime; whereas an act
of kindness and forgiveness, which it would have been better and wiser and easier to do, would have rewarded the
doers with a glow of graceful  pride  and  pleasure  every
time in after years it came to mind,

THE) BOY'S SHADOW.
Recently the mother of a boy who is about twelve years
of age made complaint before a Judge that her son was un-
ruly and'she feared he was associating with company that
in the end would bring  disgrace  to  him  and her.    The
judge told the son to step near him, and in  pleasant tone
of voice said, pointing to the parent.    "Boy, there  is the
only true friend you have; obey her.    1/et me impress this
on your mind; think of it remember it!    Whatever .shadow
you cast in life will follow you as long as   you   live  and
always keep up to you.    That is  your  reputation,    It  is
always in sight and just your size exactly, and how proud
and happy it will maks your fond mother if you  will  stop
going with bad 3'-ouths and stand in such a position in the
sunlight of heaven that your shadow will always be on the
side of honesty  and respectability.    Go home  this  time
with your "mother, turn 6ver a^new leaf and -'"prevent""'th_
law from  sending you to  the  reform, school."    Golden
words.    No more - pertinent truth  was ever  more  aptly
spoken; no wiser counsel ever  proffered by mortal   lips.
Your reputation in your community is your shadow. It is
exactly your sixe, and you can never get away from it;
though you may flee a thousand miles of a cloudy day, the
moment you show yourself in public your shadow is at
your side. Your habits and modes of thought have left
their imprint upon your features, unconsciously control.'
ing your speech and nction, and dissemble as much as you
may are constantly signaling from behind  the  mask  that
you are not what you pretend to be.

Dandies and fops are like a body without a soul', powder
without ball, lightning without thunderbolt. It is a dress
on a doll, paint on sand.. There is much of this in the
world. We see it in respect to everything considered
valuable, 1 The counterfeiter gives the show of gold to his
base ^ The
thief hangs out the show of honesty on his .face, and the
liar is thunderstruck if any one suspects him of equivocation. The bankrupt carrie s about him the insignia of
wealth. The fop puts on the masquerade of dignity and
importance and the poor belle, whose mother washes to
buy her plumes, outshines the peeress of the court.

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 ad 1"
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 bnt gives him pain.
Tread lightly ..friends; let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound,-
Here let him lie in calm repose,  :
Unsought except by men he owes. "���:'���'-
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nothing may disturb his sleep,5"::;
Where no rude clamor may dispel    :-'.
That quiet that he loved so well.
And that the world may know its loss

A special to tha Kaslo Kootena-
ian from Poplar Creek says;���Afe
last the Poplar creek section ia
again coming feo fehe front, after
several years of comparative obscurity from lack of capital. According to reports a syndicate wifeh
headquarters afe Victoria and wifeh
English capital behind it, has invested quite heavily afe Poplar. It
is now understood that four promising properties of the camp have
been turned over for a sum said to
be in the neighborhood of $190,000
when all payments shall have been
completed. The Tops; and Nugget
owned by Tony Hanson, four claims
owned by A. G. Johnson, two
claims owned by Chas. Hanson
and the famous Tenderfoot property owned by Ben Lawson aud Eric
Strand, are included in the deal.
Several other optionB have been
taken and it is expected that these
will be taken np before the spring
is far advanced.
George Pappas came down from
the Gray Horse on Thursday and
brought some of fehe finest samples
that have ever been taken out of
that property. The ore is gray
copper and galena and Mr. Pappas
stated that the $210,00 in copper
but having no road as yet built up
to the property he is unable to ship
the ore out.
McDonald brothers who have
been Avorking on their claims near
Goldhill all winter left fox Lardo
Friday having driven a tunnel 150
feet long this winter. |
Nothing yet has been heard if
the Bushner people are going to
open up their gold dredge at Gold-
hill this spring or not bat from the
results that were obtained last fall
it seems likely that things will
again be set moving, bnt it iB expected that they will build a larger
dredge.
over along with the debt liabilities j
standing against it, $ Shares m_y
realize anything from 82.50 to
$10.
This property is in the "White
Bear Addition.
A man who lives only for himself, has not begun bo live���has yet
to learn his use, and his real pleasure, too, in fehe world.���Woodrow
Wilson.
The returns from the first shipment of fonr hundred tons of ore
from the Silver Standard mine
which were shipped this season
have been received. In the first
twelve or fourteen cars were four
hundred and sixty tons and the
smelter returns on this ian.otu.ted
to $53,62- or $114.40 per ton.
In the total shipment there were
seven hundred and thirty tons and
at the same rate the total returns
for the season will be $80,423.20.
That the standard of the ore in
the remaining two hundred and
seventy tons will be up to the first
lot is practically assured, as that
_ ore_ which came from the No. 3
vein, and it was the ore from No.
3 vein which was responsible for
the increase in values.
Last year the values were more
than $8.00 less per ton than this
year.
The smelter returns were exceed-
ly satisfactory to the owners of the
property and they no longer hesitate about proceeding with all
speed with farther development.
With a treasury containing $80,-
000, they have no financial difficulties to bother them. It is merely
a question of time to acoomplish
fehe big plans which have bean prepared during the past few weeks.���
Hazelton Herald.
The Britannia .mine on  Howe
Sound iB the second largest  ore
producer in B.C.    It is about 30
miles from Vancouver,  and employs over 700 men with a daily
payroll of $2,500.   Last year this
mine produced gold silver and copper to the gross value of $2,000,-
000.    The 800-ton mill will soon
be enlarged to a capacity of 2,000
tons daily.     The   Britannic was
located in 1897 by Oliver Flurry.
The company pays its miners 83.50
per day; muckers $3.25; and laborers, 33.00.
Charles Connell, of Rossland has
bonded a number of claims in Summit Camp to Col. Robert Stevenson, of Chilliwack, who has grouped them with several other properties and, in turn, has bonded to a
syndicate for a million dollars,
There are thirteen claims included in the properties under
option from Col. Stevenson and his
syndicate, which is comprised of
eleven owners. The properties
have been well developed during
the years which Col. Stevenson, and
his associates have held fehem.
The chief delay in more active development has been the lack of
railway transportation.
Railways are in sight now, for
the Kettle Valley Railway company is busily engaged in completing its Hope Mountain section
up the pass from Hope to Otter
Summitt or Cold water Junction,
as the railway point is known.
The line runs very close to Mr.
Connell'b property, which is in
what is known as the Leadrille
camp. There are a number of
other good prospects in this camp,
and the owners have all been active
in recent years getting .heni as
well developed as circumstances
have permitted. There is very
good ground for fehe belief that a
valuable accession to the producing camps of fehe province will be
opened up by the K.V.R. line
when it reaches Otter Summit and
connects with fehe coast.���Rossland

Here is a good story about a
group of Scottish lawyers who were
gathered round a brew of toddy
one evening. The conversation
turned upon a question of pronunciation.
"Now I always say 'neethery' "
one of the lawyers said, in discussing the pronunciation of }he
word "neither."
"I Bay 'nayther,'" remarked
another lawyer. Turning to a
third he asked: "What do you
eay, Sandy??' j
Sandy, whose head was a tittle
muddled by too many helpings of
toddy, woke up from a gentle doze.
"Me?" he said. "Oh, I nay
'whusky.'"
In its column, headed "Gold
and Dross," Toronto Saturday
Night answers questions as to the
financial standing and prospects
before mining and other investments companies. In a recent
issue the editor replied to a query
from "J.S.S.," Ailsa Craig, Out.,
as follows:
"The property of the California

LESS DYSPEPSIA NOW
HERE'S THE REASON
The fact that there is less dyspepsia
and indigestion in this community roan
there used to be is largely, we "believe,
due to the extensive use of Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets, hundreds of packages of
which we have sold. ��� No -wonder we
have faith in them. No wonder -we are
willing to offer them to you for trial entirely at onr risk.
Among other things, they contain
[Pepsin and Bismuth, two of the greatest
digestive aids known to medical science.
They soothe the inflamed stomac__, ally
pain, check heartburn and distress, fadp
to digest the food, and tend to quickly
restore the stomach to its natural, comfortable, healthy state.
There is no red tape about <ror gaaxaxi-
tee. It means just what it says. We'll
ask yon no questions. Your wwi is
enough for us. If Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets don't restore jour atomadbi to
