MINE CONSOLIDATIONS.  With the announcement, originating  in the Boundary country,  to  tlie effect  that the large producers of   that  cainp  contemplate the consolidation   of their  properties will in no way" create a general surprise.   This can  only   be   viewed  as an economic industrial undertaking.  The effect on the   Boundary   can   have  but one, and that will be of a more stability in character, and as there is a predisposition in the present age of  industrial advancement to merge   all   industries of a similarity  into  gigantic combinations, there  cannot   be   any other  solution to mining to place it on a  parity with other branches of industry.   As  the mines of that camp depend  largely-  on the copper as the principal producing  revenue, and  as the   markets   of  tliip  metal    are    at    all   times   subject   to  fluctuations���������declining or rising as   the  demand   occasions���������it will   ultimately  come sooner or later'if it does not occur  in the immediate future. By so organizing    these     industries    into    the  so-  called term of "trust"���������one inadvertently misinterpretated���������it i6 only  promoting the welfare and   bringing   about   a  state of more rapid progress, as well   as  leaying the only alternative of   protecting    themselves���������through    its   vested  powers���������by regulating the   supply and  treatment of its product.  Jt was only a few years ago that these  corporate bodies were looked upon as a  menace to public utility of any country,  but events eminating from these combinations are gradually gaining ground  that they are more of a public benefactor  rather that a tyranical octapua bo long  as their powers are curbed to meet the  warranted conditions of the times. It  is now practically welcomed as a further  beacon of greater advancement of enterprise and education. Not only are the  capitalists, but the union of working-  men shaping there destinies in the  groves of industrial organization and to  decry the one organization muRt essentially bring displeasure upon the other.  Not alone are these rumors of organise  ation confined to the Boundry, but apparently tho wave is spreading to Ross-  land���������notably in the consolidation of  the Le Roi and Le Roi No. 2���������and we  would not at all bo surprised to see,such  a thing overtake the Slocan, and would  in all probability be the best means of  bringing about the desired cliango that  the Slocan is at present seeking.  As all conversant with the Slocan are  cognizant of the fact that the principal  drawback ia its inability to market its  product at any reasonable figure conducive to its prosperity, along with exorbitant freight and smelting rates.  BLOOD    HISTORY  Born in bone marrow���������dies  in the liver. This is the be-  Q-inninsf and the end of the rich,  red blood that keeps us all  alive. Blood history makes a  fascinating story.  Scott's Emulsion often plays  a most important part in blood  ! history.  At the very beginning  I ���������that  is where its influence  is greatest.

The Moyie Leader eaye the miners'  union of the Kootenays should assist  the mineowners in their efibrte to secure the legislation which they desire at  the coining session of parliament.

Will  he draw back or will lie take the final,  fatal step? A great many people are in  peril like the sleep-walker. They are  diseased. The disease is progressing  day by day. The time comes when one  more step away from health is fatal.  The man who has suffered from indigestion or gastric trouble  goes   some   night   to   a  dinner aud returns home  to find lie has taken that  last   step   from   health  which can never be taken back.

Then came the neighbors bursting in  With shouts of boisterous glee,  Stamping their feet to aid   the   din  And set the loose snow free.  Loud the old manor echoed then,  With peals of laughter shrill,  For those were times when hearts of men  Were filled with free good will.  The feast was spread: and at the  board  They tasted -high deliuht;  The best the cellars might afford  Was furnished forth that night.  And young and old joined in the   plays,  While swift the evening crept,  For thoy knew well, in olden days,  How Christmas should be kept/  'Twas then that "Merrie England" was  And "Bonnie Scotland," too.

Many a man is considered a hopeless  fool on account of his hopelessness.  It is easy to prove that the gun  isn't  .loaded immediately after the accident.  A lot of unimportant happenings  are  postponed on account of the weather.  A New York artist made a fortune  painting purple landscapes���������and lost it  painting red towns.  Though the young husband may be  willing to attend his wife's church, he  insists on voting as heretofore.  Whiskey straits make crooked paths.  c An elevator is at best a sort of hand-  me-down affair.  Lots of men tire themselves to death  looking for an easy job.  It is hard for the man who is   flat on  hia back to face the world.  ��������� Most bachelors' idea of misery  is being alone with a noisy baby.  When a man is in love he doesn't  know axle grease from butter.  But for the donkey's big ears he  couldn't appreciate his own music.  If a a man is satisfied with himself be  is usually disappointed with other people.  Lawyers have no excuse forgoing hungry, as the slatutes have lots of provisions in them.  The average man's little troubles  would not amount to much were it not  for the uncalled-for comment of Ins  upon them.  ."   She Dictated Afterwards.

Mining News.  The forces at the Black Prince and  Ottawa minea has been reduced on account of the low price of silver. Both  mines shipped a car of ore each the past  week to the Hall smelter in Nelson.  The bond on the Lucky Jim has been  thrown up. The property was leased a  short time ago b}r Messrs. Goldsmith  and Jeffries, who thought they could  turn its large zinc bodies into account  and make a profit. It now appears the  zinc of that property carries a large per  centago of iron, which would have to be  milled before the ore could be shipped  to the smelter.  A rich strike is reported on the.

VOU 6��������� XO. 28.  iAKDON, B. 0., SATURDAY, BECF.MBEJi 27, 1902.  2.00 PEE YEAR  XMAS   ENTllRFAINMENTS,  Presbyterian Entertainment and Tree  The Christmas tree ami concert held  by the Prtsbyterian church last Tuesday  evening, in the union hall, wai a grand  success. The hall was packed to the  doors snd the large audience greatly enjoyed the entertainment. There i������ always a pleasure attached to the amusement furnished by the little ones, and  to judge by the great applause, given to  them, the little tota are the favorites ol  Sandon. The programme waa a very  long one������������������a little too much eo��������� hut was  carried through withont a hitch. The  songs were warmly applauded,and where  harmony was lacking, the heartiness  wiih which they were rendered, more  than made up for the discord. There-  citations, dialognes, etc., of the children  were interspersed -with those of grown-up  people, which 'gave an evenness, to the  entertainment and encouragement to  youngsters. It would he hard to single  out those for special mention, as to do  so would be to name them all, and we  have not -''the space" at onr command.  Some of the leading features were those  of the outsiders who voluntary took pari  and eontributedmnoHmalldegreeto the  success of the evening; Of these the  dialogue "The train to Mauro" waB the  most laughable. The leading .character  a country woman going to visit her sick-  daughter at Mauro, was taken by Herb  Sharp, who acted the part to. perfection'..  Womandke he carried a hsbketful of  remedies for every ailment thpt flenh is  and persistently uttered them to the  sullen operator, only to be met with a  eiirt refusal. The trouble arose over the  name of the station. The woman wanted to take the train to Mauro, the operator thought she meant tomorrow, ami  did not wake up to the fart unt-H-tht*  train pulled into thotation, leaving the  sharp-tongued lady but a few minutes  to gather up her numerous parcels scattered round and catch the train. The  confusion can be better imagined than  described, while the smile of the operator, at getting even with the garrulous  old lady, would do you good tosee. Mr.  Sharp also gave a number of selections  on the mouth organ and boned together,  and received such an encore ho had to  come back. Rev. Mr. Kubb uaug "Bonnie Dundee" and was alio loudly encored,butjtime would notnllow it mid lhe  programme was rushed on. MUs Alice  Trtmary gave an exhibition of club  swing that met with hearty applause,  while the grand march duet on lhe  piano by Mr. Fallows and Mrs. Tow-  good, and the singing of the latter, called  forth a thunder of upplanse. Rev. Mr.  Mclntyre acted as chairman and k������pt  the audience In good humor during the  entertainment. The feature of the evening was the tree. The presents for the  children were all right, but some for  others caused much laughter as they  were held up to view when the "lucky"  ones reached the stage.  IN THE   METHODIST CHURCH.  The concert and Xtnae tree in the  Methodist church on Christinas eve waa  well patronized. The edifice was too  email and filliHl to overcrowding. The  church was nicely decorated for the occasion and the tree taatily arranged and  loaded down with presents fur the little  ones and big ones too. A good pro"  gramme was presented, which wns much  the same of the preceding night to need  comment. Everyone enjoyed the entertainment furnished by the children.  The leading features were the dialogues  and recitations of the Karr family, boys  and -girl?,- whoseem quite at home on  the stage, and with voice and action  give life to their parts and encouragement to the other. Aleo Master Brooks  who committed to memory and recited  -with much force the longest piece of the  evening without a break. The tray drill  by iour girls, namely, Violet Jones, Sylvia Warner, Minnie Thompson and  Mabel Karr was ranch admired. The  young ladies keeping perfect step, time  and movement to the stirring marches  rendered by Miss Minnie McKinnon.  A quartette composed of the Misses Ada  and Stella Pound, and Messrs. M. L.  Grimmett and -Re'7. Mclntyre' rendered  "He is the King," the solos being taken  by Miss Stella Pound, and -brought-out  a.rousing encore to which they responded.Herb (sharp and Frank McKinnon  kept the audience in fits of laughter by  their humorous recitationn. Later in a  dialogue 'entitled "Doing the Grand,"  Master Frank started out to do so^ but  slipped up omit.'just.-when "he'thought  he had a grand dinner fur himself. The  distribution ��������� of the presents on the  XmiU tree was patiently awaited with  pleasure by the youngsters, and watched  with interest by the others. A good  marcv "boobies" were awaiting claimants, but a good many did not show  up, having received a pointer or two  the night befoie.  Local News Notes.  A Happy New Year to you.
