Second-class, $50; Third-class,  $25, Per Ton  A. B. Hood, secretary-treasurer of  the Skylark Development Co., Ltd.,  received returns this week from the  last carload of high grade ore shipped  from the company's mine in Skylark  camp, a couple of miles from Phoenix,  the results showing it to have been one  of the most valuable cars of ore ever  shipped out of any mine in the Boundary district. The ore went to the Hall  Mining & Smelting Co., Ltd., at Nelson, the returns being  $5,220.11   for  WORK STARTED  ON GREYHOUND  Bond  the  tons of ore,  or an average of  $208 per ton in gold and silver.  While the ore was sorted at the mine,  the sorting was not closely done. Had  the sorting been close, the returns  would probably have been over $300  per ton. The returns are considerably  larger also than any heretofore received  from shipments from this property.  Two other cars of ore were sent out  recently from the Skylark, one of second class ore to the Granby smelter,  which yielded about $50 per ton, and  another of third class ore, heretofore  considered of little value, to the Granby smelter also, which was found to be  worth $25 per ton, the returns from  the entire three cars last shipped being  most satisfactory to the management  of the property.  Sinking in the main shaft of the  Skylark mine from the 1 50-foot level  to the 250-foot level, is actively going  on, about 65 feet of the work having  been done. It is confidently antici  pated that the ore bodies in the Skylark will be found in place at the lower  level, and should this prove to be thc  case, it will doubtless add largely to the  value of the property, placing it in the  front rank of Boundary's high grade  producers, with the profit-sharing stage  within measurable distance.  The Skylark is owned by a close  corporation, most of members of which  are mining men and, with one or two  exceptions, are residents of Phoenix.  They bonded thc property in October,  190.1, for $30,000, have operated it  uninterruptedly ever since, and have  met every payment on the bond when  due, being able now to meet the last  payment that is not due for several  months. Should the mine continue to  improve, it is likely that an air compressing plant will be secured and even  more extensive exploitation be undertaken in the future.  Taken by   Rathmullen  Mines, Ltd.  The Greyhound mine, located in  Deadwood camp, not far from the well  known Sunset and Mother Lode mines,  has been bonded to the Rathmullen  Mines, Ltd., through their managing  director, L. H. Moffatt, of Rosslad.  Mr. Moffatt has started a force of men  doing surface work, preparatory to operating the property on the glory hole  or surface quarrying system. His idea  is to get a face from 60 to 100 feet in  depth, and quarry out the ore fur shipment, and later use the present 200-  foot shaft for deeper workings by a  system of mill holes, which will obviate the necessity of shovelling the  ore, as everything will be handled by-  gravity.  The surface and underground workings of the Greyhound have been  thoroughly examined arid assayed, with  what are said to be satisfactory results,  the property having one of the largest  surface showings of any of the copper  gold properties in the district. The  practical work is being done under the  superintendence of R. H. Hewer, who  is a practical miner as well as a mining  engineer.  MADE HIS BED  ON THE RAILS  T. H. Corkill   Killed  By  N. Loeomotive  G.  Jury  Does   Not   Blame  Trainmen.  The  Death 01 Thomas Flnalgai.  Word was received here Wednesday  of the death the day before of Thos.  Finnigan, at Vancouver. Mr. Finni-  gan was for a long time manager for P.  Burns &: Co., Ltd , in Phoenix, both  he and Mrs. Finnigan having the respect and friendship of a large number of our people. Over a year ago  Mr. Finnigan moved to Midway, but  his health was net good. He went to  Spokane and underwent an operalion  for stomach trouble, but never fully  recovered. Two or three weeks ago  they went to Vancouver and another  operation was performed on Mr. Finnigan, in the hope of saving his life, but  he passed away Tuesday. It was Mrs.  Finnigan's intention to take the remains to their old home at Appleton,  Wisconsin, for interment, first visiting  Midway to close up some business  matters. Mrs. Finnigan has the sincere sympathy of many friends here.  RAWHIDE NEVER  LOOKED BETTER  Idaho Mine Also  Developing  Well.  When in Grand Forks this week,  M. M. Johnson, managing director of  the Dominion Copper Co., is reported  to have stated as follows :  The Rawhide never looked better  than it does today, and has certainly  passed my expectations. Yes, values  are good and there is a gratifying per  centage of iron magnetite. The lime  and iron more than offset what silica  the Rawhide ore contains. I should  consider it a little better even than the  ore of the Brooklyn and Stemwinder,  and we are disclosing a big tonnage.  The Idaho is developing extremely well  and though we do not propose to do  any sloping yet, \vc shall ship ore  mined in development work to the  smelter shorn ������ The hoist is partly  installed, and will be operated by  steam until the electrical connections  are ready. A compressor plant capable of working 25 to 30 drills will  shortly be installed at a cost of  $30,000.  Mr. Johnson states that thc big new  furnace for the smelter at Boundary  Falls should be here next month, and  when blown in will make the daily  tonnage smelted about ;.2oo tons.  Asked as to the possible ere :tion of a  new smelter Mr. Johnson replied that  it was sc it what early yet to formulate  plans. The mines would be thoroughly developed and smelter arrangements would lie made to fit in with  the general piogiess of the mines,  which were at present 1.. an extremely  satislactory condition.  John A. Crawtu.'l. master mechanic  at the I Kmiinion Copper Co. mines,  has sent in his resignation.  The public school will not reopen  next Monday, August 13th, as originally expected, but has been postponed  for a week, the resumption of sehol  astic duties taking place Monday,  August 20th. Parents will please take  notice accordingly. The school board  recently mailed notices to all parents  regarding the law about sending children to public school. Heretofore,  some parents have disregarded this  regulation, and in future the law will  he enforced.  U.S. STEEL  CORPORATION  Phoenix Visitor  Tells About  Great  Concern.  Has  18,000 Employees In Its  Iron Mines.  Probably nearly every one has heard  of the United States Steel Corporation,  which, with its capital of $1, 500,000,-  000, being a consolidation of several  large steel manufacturing concerns, is  perhaps the greatest corporation on  the American continent or in the  world. In the party of Dominion Copper Co. officials, which arrived in  Phoenix last week, was Dwight E.  Woodbridge, M. E , of Duluth, the  home of the United States Steel Corporation. Mr. Woodbridge, who examined the Granby mines some two  or three years ago for James J.Hill,  before the contract was let for the  Phoenix extension of the Great Northern railway, has also done some work  for the great steel company, and gave  some idea of the extensive opera'ions  of this gigantic mining concern.  At Duluth are the offices of the  steel company, and when it is understood that these general executive  headquarters are located in a seven  story building, 100 feet long and 1.10  feet deep, a slight idea of the importance of the concern may be gained.  The company employs about iS.ooo  men in its Minnesota iron mines, nnd  ships monthly from a million and a half  to two million tons of ore, owning a  couple of railways to handle the product, which goes out to Pittsburg and  other rolling mills via the Great Lakes  route. A fleet of some 36 steamers  is owned and operated for this purpose.  In mining the ore a great deal of it  is done underground, but about 40  per cent of the ore is taken out with  steam shovels and loaded direct to the  railway cars.  While the United States Steel Corporation's predecessors in business  used to keep paid squads of lobbyists  at the state capitals where they were  interested, the present company does  nothing of the kind and eschews politics, attending strictly to the business  of mining ore and producing steel. Its  policy has always been liberal with the  employees. As an example, in some  of the mining towns the company has  erected school buildings that cost from  $40,000 to $00,000. for the use of the  children of its men.  Latent Prices In Metal*.

Last Saturday night at 10:55 o'clock  a fatal accident occurred 011 the  Granby switchback of the Great Northern, and the victim, Thomas H. Corkill, is now in his grave.  Corkill and his cousin, Thomas  Kermeen, had been employed at the  Meadow Lark mine, and had been in  town several hours, doing more or  less drinking, starting down the track  for the mine, which is a couple of  miles distant. This is not the usual  route. When near the end of the switch  back Corkill decided to lie down between the rails and take "40 winks"  and a snooze. Kermeen advised him  not to do so, saying he could hear an  ore train coming, and Kermeen went  on. A few minutes later he heard the  approach of the ore train and hastened  back ro where Corkill was, arriving  just in time to see him being rolled  over by the pilot of the locomotive.  The engineer stopped at once, investigated, and found Corkill partly,  under the pilot, making his last gasps  The train was backed up, the remains  taken out, and the police notified, who  took the remains to the Binns undertaking parlors. The train consisting of  19 cars of Granby ore���about 1,000  tons���had just started from the ore  bins and was on the tail end of the  spur preparing to take the lower leg  of the switchback, when Corkill was  si ruck. Engineer Bodey said he was  going at about four miles an hour,  had a good headlight on the locomotive, No. 720, and saw dark object on  the track, but thought it was an ash  heap, of which there are many.  At first it was thought that an in  quest would not be necessary, but the  coroner, A. S. Black, of Greenwood,  finally decided to hold one, which was  done on Tuesday, the following being  the jury: Walter Morrison, N. Le-  mieux, Gust Johnson, J.Frank Jones,  John Tipichand David Smith. Thos.  Kermen and Arthur E. Bodey, the engineer, and W. H. Weise, the fireman,  were examined by the coroner regarding the accident, practically bringing  out above facts. The jury brought in a  verdict that deceased came to his death  by being struck by locomotive No.  720 on the Great Northern switchback,  August 4th, while lying between the  rails, and found no blame to attach to  the trainmen.  Corkill was a single man about 46  years of age. He was an old timer in  the Boundary, being the owner of a  number of claims, some of which are  under bond. He had been employed  at different properties, at one time be-  in^ shift boss at the Mother Lode  mine. He had been working at the  Meadow Lark since it started, some  three weeks previously, and was a native of the Isle of Man. The funeral  was held in Phoenix Wednesday at 1  o'clock, the interment taking place in  Greenwood cemetery, deceased being  a member in good standing of Greenwood Miners' Union No. 22.  Corkill had one brother, George  Corkill, at Tonopah, Nevada, and another, William E. Corkill, resides at  Leadville, Colorado, while his mother  lives in the Isle of Man.  Boundary Mining Notes  About 75 men are employed in the  mines and -prospects of Franklin camp.  More ore h.is been going   out   Irom  I he Snowshoe to the.  iv eel;.  'rail smelter ibis  70  of  feet has been  the   Crescent  shaft  '5  on  fee!.  the  and  A depth of about  obtained in lhe shaft  fraction.  The    prospecting  Meadow Lark is down  drirting is being done.  Foreman Harry Plaisance, of the  Granby carpenter force, now has about  40 men at woik, rushing the construction of the new Victoria shaft and engine houses and other work.  A force of about 2S0 men is now  employed by the Dominion Copper  Co. at its several mines in this camp���  the large.'t number yet employed here  outside the Granby Consolidated.  On account of unavoidable delays  by he manufacturers, it appears likely  that there will be some delay in the  delivery of the new blast furnace for  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Boundary  Falls smelter.  The Elkhorn shaft is down 300 feet  and a crosscut is being run to', meet  the lead. At ten feet in, the drift is  entirely in richly mineralized rock, and  the company expects to encounter the  ledge at any moment.  At the Granby mines the Victoria  shaft is down about 35 fe<.t, and work  is being crowded with as many men as  can be put at work, besides the raising  that is being done from the 400-foot  level to meet the men sinking.  Officials of the Dominion Copper  Co. inspected the Marshall group in  this camp last Saturday, where they  found immense surface showings.  They also took a look at the company's Athelstan mine in Wellington  camp.  For the past eight months, according to a Boston report, the Dominion  Copper Co.has earned about $200,000  net. By October it is expected that  the company will be earning at the  rate of between $60,000 and $75,000  monthly, or about $800,000 a year.  It is reported from the Prince  Henry that, within, ten feet in the drift  from the shaft at the 170-foot level,  the miners this week reached a fine  body of antimonial silver, the vein being from four to ten inches wide, and  assaying from $200 to $800 per ton.  JULY PAYROLL  WAS $200,000  In Boundary Mines, Smelters  and Railways.  Month's Output Was  Smaller.  Much  Yesterday was payday for ihc big  mines in the Boundary for the month  of July, the amount disnibu ed at the  several mines and to be paid a few  days later by the railway cjmpanies  hauling the ore and mining supplies,  and products of smelters, being the  same as last month, namely, $20;,000.  Approximately, the Boundary pay for  July was distributed as follows :  Granby Consolidated   $70,000  B. C. Copper Co     35,000  Dominion Copper Co     35,000  Smaller mines. . . . .-      20,000  C.P.R. and G.N. railway men    40,000  A report from Boston is to the effect  that "Granby Consolidated'sofficials be-  lievethat the work of increasing the capacity of each of the company's furnaces  50 per cent will be completed in about  three months, and that after the middle of October the company will be  reducing at the rate of 35,000,000  pounds of copper annually at a cost of!  about 7j-< cents per pound. This  would provide for earnings of $19 per  share on the company's new capitalization of 135,000 shares, or $1.901 Skylark  per share on its present capitalization,  un a 15 cent copper market."  Total July pay $200,000  July Mine Output Saallcr.  The  output  of   the   mines   of the  Boundary district   for  the   month  of  July was considerably smaller than for  the month of June���by about  20,000  tons.    There was no smelting  at   the  B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter at Greenwood, and the furnaces at the Granby  smelter are  still  undergoing  the  process  of rebuilding  and   enlargement,  which cuts down   the tonnage  appreciably.    But additional men were employed   in   enlargements.      While; in  June over 100,000   tons   of ore   were  mined and smelted in this district, the  July story shows but little over 83,000  tons for an output, which is the smallest month  thus far .this   year.    After  another month or two, however, there  will be r. big jump in the monthly out  put, as by that time some of the new  furnaces will be starting operations, and  long before cold weather sets jn again,  the output should be at least 150,000  tons monthly, or more, or at the  rate  of 5,000 tons or more daily.  .    -       --  "   Following are the approximate figures  of the   output   at   the' various  mines for June :  Mine Tou��  Granby mines 60,564  B.

AT PBOKNtX. B. C.  W. B. WILLCOX. Manager  B. C MINING  o  The Iron Mask mine, near Kamloops, is shipping to the Trail smelter.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 6,519 tons, making 190,229 tons  for the year.  One handicap that -the mining industry is suffering from in the Slocan  is a shortage of ore sacks.  At the Ymir mine 25 stamps crushed 150010ns of ore, producing 2S6  ounce's of bullion valued at $3400,  making a total of $7000 for June.  George Aylard has purchased the  Standard mine, a high-grade silver-  lead producer near Silverton, for $30,-  000 cash. Messrs. Grady and Briggs  were the vendors.  There are, eleven smellers in British  Columbia in operation today, with a  combined daily capacity of 7,500 tons  of ore.

And there may be something  in it. The Herald, of Cranbrook, suggests that the Colonel should clothe  his ideas in pajamas. The Spokane  Spokesman- Review gives Lowery and  his Claim about a column of free advertising. All of which, as we remarked  before, is good advertising for Lowery.  Wonder if he put the pbstoffice people  up to this ?  The concentrator men at the St.  Eugene are asking for an eight hour  day. A petition is now being circulated among the mil! men and it is said  there are no refusals. It will be a  unanimous request.  The Nevada, Columbia and Edward  1). claims, on Sheep creek, Ymir mining division, have been bonded by  Charles Oimstead of New York fur  $300,000.

Director Low of the geological survey department, leaves for British Columbia this week to look into the work  being done there. It is understood  that the place formerly filled by the  director has been tendered to R. W.  Brock, who is one of the most capable  and efficient officers of the department.  Mr. Brock was appointed to the permanent staffon May ist, 1S97, and  acted during that season as assistant  to one of the field parties in British  Columbia. In 1S9S he was giveu  charge of a field party in West Kootenay, aud since then has geologically  examined West Kootenay, East Yale,  Boundary Creek, Lardeau and Rossland districts. The work of Mr.  Brock in these districts has met with  the highest praise from the local mining communities and his advice and  judgment is readily accepted in all important mining problems in British Columbia. Mr. Brock has received the  degree of M. A. from the Queen's,  Kingston, and has taken a post graduate course in geology under Prof. Rosen busch at Heidelberg, Germany.  During the past few years Mr. Brock  has acted during the winter months as  instructor of mineralogy,   mining and  Markets at Greenwood, Grand Forks, Midway,   Eholt ami all  the  other  principle Cities and Towns in B.C., Alberta and ^ ukon.

The fruit  ranchers  around   Nelson  'have met and resoluted that they want,' Boundarv  The Grit politicians of this province  must be proud   of their   record in digging up mare's nests.    During the last  session they announced in scare heads  that the McBride government was tottering to an ignominious fall,   and   almost announced the exact  date of the  tumble.    They   unearthed  that awful  Kaien island deal, and referred repeatedly to the "band of ad venturers, male  and   female,"    rolling  it   under  their  tongues like a sweet morsel; they also  trotted out the horrible   Pendray deal,  the leading spirits being   the Victoria  Times and Vancouver World, followed  by the lesser lights.    But they should  now, one and all, be able to crawl into  an exceeding small hole, for they knew  that their dire prognostications   would  turn out to be  so much hot air,  and  the commissions appointed   to investigate the   deals   found   nothing wrong.  Latterly they have been busy preparing  for an election,   but they   seem   to be  the only   ones   that   know  any   thing  about it.    It is   a  case   of the   blind  leading the blind.

Duncan Ross states in the Boundary  Creek Times that improvements  will  be made in   the   mail   service   of the  notwithstanding  what   he  Chinese admitted to this province with- calls the hysterical  vaporings of such  out head-tax, as they claim they can  not'get labor to pick their crops. We  "will venture the opinion that the said  ranchers will find a good deal of opposition before they succeed in getting the  Chinks in to the extent that they would  like. There is also one thing pretty  'certain, if a horde of them do reach  "Nelson, they will not care to try the  high elevation of Phoenix.  Over in Alberta they are criticising  the mail service afforded  much  more  than in the  Boundary���and  from  reports they have occasion to do so.    If  the great and glorious Laurier govern-  ' meht had spent less money on costly  "government buildings in Nelson, Rossland and other  places, and   more on  looking after  the  service, the service  would be better.    Not that Rossland  "and Nelson are not deserving of ��ood  Tory organs as the Nelson Canadian  and the Phoenix Pioneer. It is an incontrovertible fact, however, and Mr.  Ross dare not deny it, that most of the  improvements made in the mail service  in the Boundary in the last year or two  were made because the Pioneer and  the people of Phoenix insistently  showed the postoffice department  where they were needed and justified.  And while we are on the subject, is it  not a pretty state of affairs when the  supposedly well-posted officials at Ottawa must have the need of such  things driven into their pates with a  sledgehammer, as it were? They should  take the initiative in postal changes,  the need of which is self evident, and  not have to be coaxed to make the  changes.

Summer  Diarrhoea   in Children  During the hot weather of the summer months, the first unnatural looseness of a child's bowels should have  immediate attention, so as to check  the disease before it becomes serious.  All that is necessary is a few doses of  Chamberlain s Cholic,Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, followed by a dose of  castor oil to cleanse the system. Rev.  M. O. Stockland, Pastor of the first  M. E. Church, Little Falls, Minn.,  writes: "We have used Chamberlain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy  for several years and find it a very val  uable remedy, especially for summer  disorders in children."

SUGAR REFINING  CO.L^yAHCOUVER:_BJC^M^  Many residents of the Boundary  and Phoenix will remember Elmer D.  Hall, formerly a partner in the Phoenix Pioneer, but who sold out over  three years ago, went to Washington,  D. C, to learn machine typesetting,  and has made good ever since in different parts of the west. A couple of  months since he accepted a position as  machine operator on the Daily Times,  in the new and booming town of Fairbanks, Alaska. The following letter,  received by the editor of the Pioneer  from Mr. Hall���which by the way,  was 26 days in reaching Phoenix���  contains much of interest about that  north country:  Fairbanks* Alaska, July 10, 1906  I left Seattle just one month ago today, and made remarkably good lime  coming in, having made the trip in  just eighteen days. 1 came in by way  of the "Inside Passage," via Ketchikan, Juneau, Treadwell, Skagway,  Whitehorse, Dawson and Circle City,  leaving the Yukon at Fort Gibbins and  coming 200 miles up the Tanana river  to this place  This was the finest trip  of my life.  The scenery is something that beggars;  description���one continuous chain of;  islands on the "outside;" and immense'  mountains and glaciers on the landside, i  make  the   voyage   one  of   continual j  interest.    The trip down   the  Yukon i  from Whitehorse is something grand.  The sun never went   down   from   the  time  we   left   Dawson   until  after we  passed through the Arctic circle at Fort  Yukon.    Just think of the sun shining  at 12 o'clock at night!  This country is out of joint." Nothing stops here. Building continues  day and night���in fact, there are more  men working on outside work at night  than in the day. For some unaccountable reason, there is a difference in  the temperature of about 6 degrees between day and night. The sun went  down last night from 11:35 to about  1:25, but it had no effect on the daylight���the sun just skimming along the  horizon and throwing the magnificent  peak of old Mt. McKinley, the highest  peak ia America���over 22,000 feet���  into prominence.  This whole country is one vast  flower garden. The hills and river  banks are fairly covered. It seems  strange, when, by digging to a depth  of ten feet, one encounters frozen  ground, which is estimated to reach a  depth of 300 feet. The town is fairly  alive with dogs of all descriptions, and  almost everyone of them is worth from  $90 to $200. They are more valuable  than horses in this country. Six dogs  can take 1,000 pounds over the snow  and ice at the rate of 35 miles a day.  which seems almost beyond belief.  There are. two daily papers here and  Thompson, of Trail, Rossland and  Dawson fame, will put in a morning  and evening plant next week. I can  see the finish of somebody. Think of  two morning and two evening papers  being published in a town of 4,000,  Ads go at $22 p-r inch per month.  Meals are 75c and you can get a bed  for $1, that is a cot. The Times is  the most substantial proposition in the  town. The owner only gets a royalty  of $6 a day out of his chums. If he  isn't careful the Times will help him  take care of some of his dust. I am  good for about $300 per month here.  I will stay until spring, and then  walk out over the ice and snow to Val-  dez, a distance of 490 miles, and lake  boat for Seattle. I never saw so much  gold outside of the treasury in Washington. 1 saw two pack horse loads  cfgold come in from Cherry Creek  day before yesterday. It was un'oad-  ed on the sidewalk and left there for  more than an hour as though it were  nothing more than scrap iron. The  banks keep the nuggets in pails, back  of the railings. One man with a gun  could rob the town, but he could not  get away if he did. Everyone is honest here, for some unaccountable reason. Thete are no ( rimes committed.  Bad characters are not allowed to  land, but are sent back instanti-r.  I saw Jack Lynch in Da-vson. who  used to tend bar at the Victoria. I  have met more than 50 of oid Grand  Forks and Boundary people. It is so  hot that it is only with great effort that  I write. There will only be about two  weeks more  of  hot   weather,   then   a  Rxellnble Mr. Ooolev.  The 'original Mr. Dooley having  been told by an impressionable and  excitable individual that the country is  in a state of revolution and that great  political changes are impending everywhere, takes up bis pen and writes:,  "I'm sthrong f'r anny rivolution that  ain't goin' to happen in my day. But  th' truth is, my boy, that nawthin' happens annyhow. 1 see great changes  taken* place ivry day, but no change  at all ivry filty years. What we call  ibis here counthry iv ours pretinds to  want to thry new experiments, but a  sudden change gives us a chill. It's  been to the circus and bought railroad  tickets in a hurry so often thai ii thinks  quick change is short change. Whin  I take me mornin' walk an' see little  boys an' girls with their dinner |>a'l.s  011 their arms goin' down lo th' yards,  I'm th' hottest Socialist ye iver see.  I'd be annything to stop it. I'd be a  Raypublican even. But whin 1 think  how long this foolish old buildin' has  stood an' how manny a good head has  busted agninst it, I begin to wondher  whether 'tis anny use f'r ye or me to  thry to bump it off th' map."  Am Ancient Inscription.  The following interesting and ingenious puzzle was found a few days ago  in a remote corner of Old Ironsides  townsite, Phoenix. It was inscribed  in ancient Roman characters on a curiously shaped stone of black basalt, and  aroused considerable interest among  local antiquarians :  I  FY  OUO  WEFO  RYOUR  .  PA PL  RPA  YU  P  The Pioneer   has   the  key to these  Roman   characters, and   any   of  our  readers can get same by calling at this  office.  Excursion  Trips East.. . ������.  $55.10  month of medium weather, then the  long cold eight months of winter,  coupled with the six months of darkness.  This is certain')' an interesting  country. I went through the great  Treadwell mine while there, and it is  truly a great sight. When I clung to  an iron bar and gazed down into the  depths of the famous ''glory hole", my  hair fairly stood on end. The men  and drills looked like ants. They kill  on an average of one man a day in this  hole and the other works together.  Have not received the Pioneer yet.  Ei.mkk  D. Ham..  Coming Events.

"Make   Hay  While the Sun Shines."  There is a lesson in the work of the  thrifty farmer. He knows that the  bright sunshine may last but a day and  he prepares for the showers which are  so liable to follow. So it should be  with every household. Dysentery, diarrhoea and cholera morbus may attack  some member of the home without  warning. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which is  the best known medicine for these diseases, should always be kept at hand,  as immediate treatment is necessary,  and delay may prove fatal. For sale  by J. B. Boyle.  Can Sweet Province.  Premier McBride and his colleagues  can sweep the province whenever they  choose to appeal to the electorate.  Campaigns of slander that collapse as  soon as the charges on which they are  based are investigated cannot blind the  people to the fact that British Columbia is enjoying a period of unexampled  prosperity, due to clean and capable  administration and far-sighted financial  policy. Even intelligent Liberals reluctantly admit that the tide is running  strong against the opposition.���Nelson  Canadian.  Unnecessary  Expense.  Acute attacks of colic and diarrhoea  come on without warning and prompt  relief must be obtained. There is no  necessity of incurring the expense of a  physician's service in such cases if  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is at hand. A dose  of this remedy will relieve the patient  before a doctor could arrive. It has  never been known to fail, even in the  most severe and dangerous cases and  no family should be without it.
