Fatality Occurred Early Last  Monday.  Monday morning about 1.45 the  body of John W. Cascadden, a timber-  man employed by the Dominion Copper Co., was found in the north stope  of the 150 foot level of the Brooklyn  mine. He had evidentally been struck  by falling rock and probably instantly  killed, there being no one near him at  the time. Dr. Boucher was called by  the mine authorities and pronounced  life extinct, and the district coroner, A.  S. Black, of Greenwood, together with  the police, was notified.  Coroner Black directed Policeman  Docksteader to impanel a jury which  sat on the case at the city hall the  same afternoon, the following being on  the jury: P. W. George, J. E. Mills,  T. R. Morrison, J. H. Graham, R. V.  Chisholm and M. H. Kane. The  first witness called was John H. Sampson, foreman of the mine, being followed by George Johns, shiftboss, John  White, Nick Potgagisk, Angus Nicholson, James Blackmore, A. S. Embree  and Walter Morrison, the latter secretary of the local miners' union. Testimony was taken most of the afternoon.  Manager T. R. Drummond and Solicitor A. M. Whiteside, of the Dominion  Copper Co., being present. Most of  the jury went down into the mine with  the coroner to visit the scene of the  accident, and after returning came to  the following verdict :  We, the undersigned jurors, sum-  monedtoinquireinto thecause of death  of J. Cascadden, came to the decision  that death was caused by rock slipping  or falling from the foot wall, in the  north stope of the 150-foot level of the  Brooklyn mine, causing fatal bodily  injuries.  P.. \V. George,   Foreman,  T. R. Morrison,  Joseph H  Graham,  R. V. Chisholm,  M. H. Kane,  J. E. Mills.  Cascadden had   been   employed in  the mines of the Boundary for several  years,   having   worked  at the   B.   C.  mine, the Mother   Lode   and   others,  going   to  the Brooklyn some three or  four months since.    He was a man of  about 27 years and   unmarried, with a  cousin at Ingersoll, Ont., and a brother  and sister at Bookton, Ont., who were  at once telegraphed to.      At one time  during his residence in  the Boundary  he conducted   the   National   hotel in  Greenwood   with    Duncan   Donnelly.  He had been   living recently  at   the  Bellevue hotel, and   had many friends  in this camp,  who   thought  highly of  him.    Cascadden   was  at   one time a  member  of   Phoenix   Miners'   Union  No. 8, but at the time of his untimely  taking off was not in good standing.  A telegram was received Thursday  from B. A. Cascadden, brother of the  deceased, from Hookton, Ont., to ship  the remains of the unfortunate man  to the east. They were accordingly  sent yesterday to Norwich, Ont., the  nearest railway point to Bookton.  COMING AND GOING  j. E. W. Thompson has been spending a short season at Halcyon Hot  Springs.

IIS.-  For some little time a sentiment has  been growing that it is time to !iold a  Dominion Day celebration in Phoenix,  the idea crystallizing on Wednesday  evening in a mass meeting, held in the  large large room in the city hall, to  consider the matter. The attendance  01 business men and those interested  in sports was excellent, lv. P. Shea being temporary chairman and O- N.  Galer secretary.  Expressions from those present was  all of a kind, namely, that the idea  should be taken hold of and pushed to  a successful finish. Accordingly, a  permanent organization was at once  formed, with the following officers:  Chairman, E. P. Shea; vice-chairman,  David Oxley; secretary, Gilbert Mc-  Eachran; treasurer, A. B. Hood; executive committee, his worship, Mayor  G. W. Rumberger, |. A. Mori in, Chas.  D. Hunter, R. V. Chisholm, J. A.  McMaster, W. S. Macy, M. H. Kane  and C. A. McClung. The meeting  then adjourned to meet next Wednesday at the same place.  It is the intention of ihe "<> nmittee  to raise a fund of $2,000 if possible,  and to have the best celebration yet  held in Phoenix, with good prizes hung  up for all events, including hose reel  racing, base ball, horse racing, Caledonian sports, etc. Special trains will  be run from nearby towns, and nothing, according to those interested,  will be left undone to make the event  a success. As Dominion day this year  falls on Sunday, the celebration will  take place on the Monday and Tuesday following, July 2nd and 3rd. A  great deal of interest is being taken  throughout the Boundary this, year in  sports, and the prizes to be offered  should attract a large number. By  that time also, the newly organized  brass band should be prepared to furnish the music for the occasion.  The first parts of the 250 h. p.  electric hoist for the Granby mines,  built by the Jenckes Machine Co., of  Sherbrooke, Quebec, have arrived in  Phoenix.  A force of eight men are at work at  the McKinley mine, Mckinley camp,  under supt A. D. McPhee. When  mining machinery can be installed the  force will be materially increased.  Work is progressing steadily on the  driving ol the tunnel on the Idaho  claim by the Dominion Copper Co.,  and also in the sinking of die three  compartment shaft for the same mine.  A report from Boston is. to the effect  that the copper output of the British  Columbia Copper Co. for March was  the largest of the year, amounting to  756,315 lbs. this is at the rate of 9,087,-  780 lbs. per annum.  SOME OF~f HE~~  CONTRIBUTIONS  DOMINION CO.'S  NEW AIR PLANT  To Be Delivered in Phoenix  In 60 Days.  Large  Sunset   Hoist  Used Here.  To   Be  Open  Hearted   Assistance  San Francisco.  to  Boundary Side Lights  Some time next month the Franklin  City townsite lots will be placed on the  market.  The Boundary Creek Times, of  Greenwood, now appears in eight page  form, greatly improving its appearance.  The impression grows that work on  the Midway-Greenwood extension of  the Great Northern will be started at  no distant date.  Last Monday hunters killed three  silver tip bears within two miles of the  south end of Christina lake, and say  there are many more west of the lake.  Kettle river is now at a pretty high  stage, and the Yale Columbia Lumber  Co 's 4,000,000 foot boom is coming  down from the West Fork district very  fast.  W. H. Itter and bride, nee Mis Alta  Marsden, both of Grand Forks, were  in the doomed city of Santa Rosa,  Cal., only one day before the earthquake, escaping just in time.  Midway people have raised a fund  of nearly $7,500 for the 24th of May  celebration, and propose to eclipse all  former efforts in this line. They will  doubtless have a large attendance from  Phoenix.  Greenwood ratepayers will vote next  week Wednesday on extending the  franchise of the Greenwood Electric  Co. for twenty years, and also on issuing $10,000 in debentures for the extension of the city water system.  Bulletin No. 32, a useful pamphlet  just issued by the provincial government of British Columbia and dealing  with the undeveloped areas of the central and northern interior, accompanied  by a large map, has been received  from the department.  Robert Halpenny, of Eholt, who,  for the last six years has been conductor on Granby ore trains on the Phoe  nix hill for the C. P. I\., has resigned  and leaves Monday for Saskatoon,  Sask., where he owns a machine shop  and considerable acreage.  W. P. Tierney, railway contractor,  has been over the line of the Kettle  Valley railway's proposed North Fork  extension, with the intention of making a tender for the work. It is expected to be done as far as Lynch  creek this year, a distance of 20 miles  from Grand Forks.  Miss Bessie Moffatt, of Greenwood,  who has been with the Canadian Hank  of Commerce in San Francisco for the  past two years arrived in Spokane last  Sunday from the south and is engaged  with the Spokane Traction Co. of that  city. Her many friends will be glad  tu learn of the young lady's safety.  The response from all over the  United States and even from foreign  countries to the distress in San Francisco, created by the earthquake and  terrible fire of last week, has been  magnificent. The 200,000 homeless  people are being taken care of, and the  contributions have been exceedingly  spontaneous. The city was burned  over an area of seven square miles,  but will be rebuilt as fast as men and  money can perform the task. From  reports sent out, the following is an  incomplete list of some of the important and interesting contributions made  to the relief fund, which is growing  every day. Sometimes the contributions were made in the form of cash,  and sometimes in the shape of provisions, foodstuffs and necessaries for a  host of people made homeless and  foodless :  U. .S. Government $2,500,000  Dominion Government      100,000  Province of British Columbia.        10,000  Province of Saskatchewan .... 5,000  State of Massachusetts      500,000  State of Connecticut       100,000  Andrew Carnegie       100,000  Canadian Pacific Hailwav         10.01.0  P.

Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8 has  made a contract with John B. Crydet-  man, who has had experience in this  work, to paint four sets of scenery for  the new opera house, the work to be  completed in about three weeks. The  scenery will consist of parlor, kitchen,  street and wood scenes, and will equip  the stage of the new theatre in nice  shape. It is expected to have the  opera house ready for its opening some  time about the middle or end of May,  the matter of seating the building now  also receiving attention.  This week the Dominion Copper  Co., Ltd., through Thomas R. Drummond, manager, placed an order with  Richard P. Williams, of Rossland,  resident agent for the Canadian Rand  Drill Co., of Sherbrooke, Quebec, for  a new electric driven air compressing  plant, with intercooler, etc., lor the  Brooklyn group of mines in this camp.  It will be of the double compound  tandem type, similar to that in use at  the Granby mines, but somewhat  smaller, having a rated capacity at this  level of about 25 machine drills. This  compressor will he capable of furnishing 2,726 cubic feet of free air per  minute at sea level, or about 2,300  feet at the level of Phoenix. Delivery  of the new plant has been contracted  for in sixty days' time.  The contract for the 400 h.p. electric motor, to drive the new compressor has not yet been awarded, but  prooably will be within the next few  days.  For a hoist for the three-compartment shaft being sunk on the Idaho  mine, the steam driven hoist now in  use by the company at the Sunset  mine, Deadwood camp, will be altered  for electric service and transferred to  this camp. This is a large machine  and suitable for the work intended.  A contract for the 150 h.p. electric  motor, to drive this hoist, has been  awarded to the Allis-Chalmers-Bul-  !ock, Ltd., of Montreal, and will be  rated at 550 volts. The motors will  have full equipment of transformers,  etc.  This machinery is all intended for a  centrally located plant, to serve the  Brooklyn, Stemwinder and Idaho  mines in the heart o' this camp, and  as soon as needed, work will be itarted  on the large buildings needed to house  the new machinery.  baved Heavy Legal Costs.  A report from Grand Forks states  that word has reached there from Victoria that the supreme court sitting en  banc has allowed R. A. Brown's appeal in the case of R. A. Brown versus  B. Lequime. The orignal action was  broughl by B. Lequime against R. A.  Brown to recover some $4500 on a log  contract. The case was heard before  Chief Justice Hunter, who gave judgment in favor of Mr. Lequime. Brown  then appealed to the full court, with  the above results. The allowing of  this appeal includes some $3000 legal  costs. It is said that there is a probability of Mr. Lequime carrying the  case to a still higher tribunal.  Your friend far away would enjoy  the Pioneer.    Try him and see.  Peter Pelton, the Finn who had his  foot slightly hurt some ten days ago in  the Granby mines, after leaving the  hospital, made himself scarce, and has  left his wife in the hospital here, with  three small children unprovided for.  The provincial authorities have charge  of the case.  t  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  ATKIL  2.S   '06  The folluwiug tabic gives the ore shipments   or Boundary miues   lor 1900.

For  some weeks  past   the   Nelson  Daily News has  been  doing excellent  work in calling attention to the mining  results of southern   British Columbia,  by   compiling   and   publishing   every  Sunday reports of the complete output  of the several mines  and   smelters in  Kootenay and Vale districts.    We believe that reports of this ��iature, printed week after week, and brought down  to date with each publication,  are the  best   kind of advertisements   for the  province.      This   is   the   reason   the  Pioneer  has done this  very thing for  the Boundary for some five years past,  which  the  News   is   now   doing on a  more extended scale.

As the fuller details of the San Fran  cisco holocaust of last week come to  hand, one can, in some slight degree,  begin to appreciate the horror of the  situation created in that magnificent  city of a few days ago, with its nearly  half a million souls, by earthquake and  ��� fire. It is little wonder that many lost  their minds and went around like raving maniacs���it is more remarkable  that more did not become thus  affected.  Probably every section   of Canada,  to say nothing of the United States in  general and the west in particular, had  friends, relatives   or  acquaintances in  the doomed city, and great has  been  the  universal  suspense till the worst  became known.     Few can realize the  horrors through which   residents, permanent or temporary, of that city were  forced to go through in those few days.  One  feature,   however,   stands   out  clear, and that is the unanimous rushing  of almost  the entire world to the  rescue   of  the thousands of destitute  and homeless   in   the   California city.  From nearly every hamlet in America,  and from many places in  Canada the  response was prompt and effective, so  that suffering might   not ensue longer  than need be from  the destruction of  practically the entire city.    Paraphrasing the poet, one touch of earthquake  and   fire  made   the whole world kin.  The response was littie less   than   remarkable, and it came  none too soon.  The American Congress gave $2,500,-  The   Victoria   Times   asserts   that  there   is   every   indication    that   the  Grand  Trunk Pacific   will   be laying  rails from the Pacific end in the spring  of  1907.    Let  us   see.    It   was   the  Hon. Wm. Templeman, chief owner of  the Times, who told us here in  Phoenix, and others all  over  the province,  two or three years ago,  that construction   would   start   at once if only  a  "solid seven" was  returned lo Ottawa  from  British Columbia.      Well,   they  were returned,   Mr.   Templeman   was  taken at his word   by  the   electorate,  and not a thing has yet been  done by  the Grand Trunk Pacific in this province except   to jockey  unsuccessfully  for a bonus from   the   provincial government���a bonus, by the way, which  both the Times and Mr.  Templeman  previously told the people  would  not  be  asked   for.    Politics   reveal   some  queer things,   and   the  Times   wisely  leaves those promises severely alone.  Qrlp Quickly Knocked Out.  "Some weeks ago during the severe  winter weather both my wife and myself contracted severe colds which  speedily developed into the worst kind  of la grippe with all its miserable symptoms," says Mr. J. S Egleston of  Maple Landing, Iowa. "Knees ana  joints aching, muscles sore, head  stopped up, eyes and nose running,  with alterate spells of chills and fever.  We began using Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, aiding the same with a double  dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and  Liver Tablets, and by its liberal use  soon completely knocked out the grip."  Sold by all druggists.  000, and our own government at Ottawa sent $100,000, while lesser  amounts came pouring in, and are doing so yet, from all over the land,.  It is estimated that damage to the  extent cf $300,000,000 was done in  San Francisco, with insurance of a  little more   than   half   that   amount.  STRICTLY BUSINESS  No ad is as good as it should be  that doesn't make a direct appeal to  the self-interest of the reader.  Any advertising is good where none  is being done; the best advertising is  demanded where good advertising is  being done.  The man whose advertising pays is  sure of his ground; the man who says  it doesn't pay can never be sure his  method was right.  "You will never 'find' time. If you  want time you must make it." If you  can always make time by reading the  ads., you will find that in making time  you have also been making money.  How much is your business capable  of expansion ? And how much are  you prepared to pay for expansion to  that extent? If there are a lot of  people you could interest in your store  Penticton  W.C.T.U.  Kamloops will have a tax rate oi 19  mills this year.  There is a scarcity of unskilled laboi  in the Kootenays.  Enderby expects to have a $20,000  waterworks system.  Vernon proposes to put in a $20.-  000 sewage system.  On May 24th Kaslo will hold its  15th annual celebration.  Work is to be started shortly on the  Federal building at Fernie.  A man in New Westminster raises  25 different apples on one tree.  It is reported that W. J. Clement of  Kelowna will start a paper at Penticton.  The Kamloops Sentinel has. added  a typesetting machine to xis equipment. ���'.'  The Cranbrook Telephone company  is extending its long disiance line to  Elkmouth.  As showing the growth of the fruitgrowing industry in British Columbia.  Soo.ooo fruit trees will pass through  the customs at Vancouver this month.  Vancouver's Hundred Thousand  Club began its career with a membership of 400. Kamloops' Ten Thousand Club organized with 217 members  enrolled.  The Hill Crest Railway and Coal  Co. will he incorporated at Ottawa  with a line to run from Morrisey to  Cardston, with branches to Pincher  Creek and Coalfields.  Work on the construction of the  Princeton-Vancouver division of the  Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway  will probably begin within 60 days,  according to announcements made at  Spokane.  It is believed the plan to open up  the Duncan Valley by light railways  will be carried out by the German  firm who have the scheme in hand.  If so, a large area rich in timber and  mineral wealth will be provided with  transportation.  As showing the importance of the  tourist traffic to the mountains of British Columbia, 19,838 tourists were  registered at Banff last year. Their  expenditure in hotel expenses, railway  fare, guides, etc, is estimated to have  averaged $20 a day.  John D. Gillis, late principal of the  Boys' Central school, Victoria, has  been appointed provincial school inspector for Kootenay and Boundary.

There is Nevada,  for instance. 'The stories of ilv new  i i ii|i- ;fe I'll'mi. li ; ��� iir.. .1 '..'.ravit  image start in that direction, because  nearly everyone is making big money  ���according to the truthful (?) reports.  As fast as one new desert mining  camp loses its glamour, another springs  up, and it is generally a little farther  away from civilization.  tM  Then there is Cobalt, in Ontario.  The boom has taken a good hold in  that brand new spot, and is doing a  big stroke ol business. Reports tell us  that a mile of hotels and boarding  houses are now under construction,  and that, in fact, it is a made-while-  you-wait town. From all over the continent do they come to take part in  the get-rich-quick game. Even a few  have gone from the Boundary to woo  che fickle goddess. And yet it has  lieen noted here many a time that  nine out of ten of these boom chasers  return to the Boundary. There must  be a reason.  The Pioneer is in receipt of the Annual Statistical Edition of the Daily  Mining Record, of Denver, the only  daily paper of its class, by the way,  published in the world. To any one  in the least interested in the mines of  the west, this number is well worthy of  preservation, being, as it is, a perfect  mine of information regarding the  great smelters and mines of the west,  lis 48 large newspaper, pages are brim  full of data and statistics that cannot  fail to be of great use to mining men  generally, while ihe edition of 100,000  wil) make the issue do a vast deal of  good.  Mrs. Clias. Sluiiiocke, Stoughton, Wis., writes:  '���My experience \,-ith I'eruna has been moat pleasing.   By carelessly leaving a, licuted ball room I got thoroughly chilled and caught a heavy cold  I   -which settled oa my lungs.   I wore a protector,  took many remedies for  S*   cold without success.   With my oilier troubles 1 had catarrh of the head.  "Parana was recommended to me and I bought a bottle and soon began  to Improve.   I kept on taking It and It cured me from all my troubles.  I   I am pleased to testify to Its merits.''  Last December   when   the   Granby  No. 1 crusher, located on the C. P. R.  tracks here,   was   burned down, some  one remarked that the Lord   was good  to Jim Hill, as a heavier traffic would  be diverted to the Great Northern  for  a time.      I.ast week the Lord was evidently good to   Sir   Thomas   Shaugh-  nessy (not Sir Thomas O'Shaughnessy,  as   tlie   Spokesman-Review    puts    it),  when a wreck on ihe Great Northern a  few miles trom Phoenix  put  that   line  out  of  business  temporarily and sent  an  increased   tonnage   out   from    the  Granby mines over the C I'.R.  Arid this reminds us that when anything happens to the C. P. R. trains  coming to Phoenix, that railway takes  pains to see that the mails are sent in  by wagon, if possible, instead of holding them till the wreck is cleared  away. The Great Northern could  learn something from the C.P. R. in  this regard, and not keep 48 hours  mail waiting within three miles of the  ���city without making some effort to  send it in, as happened last week at a  time when thousands were anxiously  waiting full details of the San Francisco earthquake disaster.  Ml  For the last week or two the public  prints have been full of stories of the  intention of James J. Hill to build a  new line from Winnipeg west lo Vancouver, the same to take in the V., V.  & R. railway, already partially completed. Building across the prairies  would be no difficult task, and great  progress could be made with that part  of the construction. It is also pretty  certain that Mr. Hill would get his  share of the tonnage wherever he laid  his steel bands. Just at present, however, there is so much new railway  work going on all over the west, that  it will be no small matter to secure  laborers for ihe work already contracted for, several thousand miles of it.  The C. P. R. and Great Northern  have been engaged in a pretty struggle  for several years for the tonnage of the  northwest, and it is far from over.  When the Great Northern invaded the  Boundary and gobbled a big share of  the Granby tonnage, the C. P. R. immediately made a deal with D. C. Cor-  bin to throw a line into Spokane, and  by fall will have its trains in that city,  thereby making things interesting for  Mr. Hill's lines. Nor is that all, as  the C.P.R. proposes to reach Tacoma,  and Portland also, according to report.  Therefore the proposition of Mr. Hill  to build west to Vancouver, takes on  an interesting aspect. As Josh Billings would remark, it is important if  true.  Some   American   publications   are  The World's Greatest Medicine  factory.  Tho rapid growth of the Peruna Medicine Company is as phenomenal in the  business world as the universal popularity of their famous remedy, Peruna.  The plant covers a number of acres,  and employes several hundred people.  No other medicino firm in the world  reachet anything like the volume of  business done by Dr. Hartman's firm.  Although Peruna is a proprietaty  medicine, tho details of its compounding  nro no *oerofc and nothing gives Dr.  Hartman greater pleasure than lo show  the many friends of Peruna all  tho ea--  sentiuj  processes  by which  Pnruna  is  made.  A Doctor's Prescription,  For years Dr. Harttnan used Peruna  in his private practice as a regular  prescription. Ho had no thought of  manufacturing it or advertising it as a  proprietary medicine until there was a  demand made upon him by his many  friends, who clamored for the original  prescription.  Forty Thousand  Patients.  Dr. Harttnan estimates that he must  have prescribed Peruna for over forty  thousand patients before it was advertised as a proprietary medicine.  Miss  Josio   Schaetzel  Appleton, Wis., writes:  "I contracted a severe cold which  settled on my lungs in very short  order and it was not long until it developed into a serious case of catarrh.  Every morning I would raise a lot of  phlegm, which was very disagreeable.  My digestion was poor and my lungs  sore.  "After a few doses of Peruna, I be"  gan to mend, and felt that If I kept on  taking It, It would not be long until I  would be well. I was right, for In four  weeks I was well again.  "1 think Peruna Is a grand medicine,  and wish  to add my testimony to the  many others you have."-.7osle Schaetzel.  Pe-ru-na Removes the Cause of  Catarrh.  Peruna has no bad effects upon the  system and gradually eliminates catarrh by removing the cause of catarrh.  There are a multitude of  homes where  Given Up By Doctors���Cured By Pe-ru-na.  T      Miss Margret Fahey, 49 Adams street, Troy, N. Y., writes:  t      "We have used Peruna In our family for years and I am  very pleased  T   t > ssy that It cured me of catarrh ot the lungs when the doctors gave up  !  ull hope of my recovery.  I      '���[ used Peruna for six months and at the end of that time my cough had  i   disappeared, my appetite was much better and I had gained ten pounds and  J   looked the picture of health.  .      "I am in perfect health, now, and feel that Peruna not only cures catarrh,  * hut builds up tho system, and is therefore a grand medicine."���Margret  ��� Fahey.  Pe-ru-na's Popularity.  Peruna is not like so many other  remedies that pass away as soon as the  first few bottles are used. Tho longer  Peruna is used in any community, the  more popular it becomes.  Pe-ru-na Actually Cures.  The reason why Peruna has become a  Peruna has been used off and on for I standard catarrh "remedy the world over  twenty years.  ! is simply because it cures catarrh.  This explains why Peruna has become so popular. It cures catarrh.  This ia an amply sufficient reason why  it should become popular.  Catarrh is almost universal. Catarrh  is difficult to cure. The doctors do not  care to treat cases of catarrh at all.  It therefore follows that when a remedy is devised that can be used In the  home at a moderate cost, such a remedy  should inevitably become popular.  Entirely    Cured   By   Several  Bottles of Pe-ru-na.  Miss Ella M. Millor, one ot ~WHrt-  lngton's society girls, writes from DM)  F street, N. E., Washington, D. <X, ��a  follows 1  "Withpleasure I raomaameod your  medicine for catarrh of the bead.  Having taken several botttea, I find  myself entirely cured. I emnnot praise  Peruna too highly.'1-Blla AL Miller.  Pe-ru-na Contains No Norootlcs.  There are a great many catarrh oures  In the world. The most of them are  local applications. Wow ot them are to  be used internally.  Unfortunately a large number of these  catarrh remedies, especially the on��e  prescribed by the doctors, contain narcotics of some sort. Cocaine, opium,  whisky, and other narcotics are used.  These remedies give temporary relief.  The patient thinks he Is bettor right  away. In a few weeks, however, h�� discovers his mistake. Not only la hia osv-  tarrh no better, but he has aoqoired the-  habit of using some najoatto. Thia  happens In a multitude ot. taverns.  One reason why Peruna has  found permanent use In so many  homes Is that It contains 00 narcotic of any kind.  Peruna Is perfectly bmrmiesa. It  can be used any length ot time  without   acquiring  a   drug ��ablL  laving their troubles with theCana-j O-  dian postoffice department, through j  being denied the second class postal  rates, which makes it necessary to affix  stamps lor copies destined for Canadian subscribers, at the rate of a cent  for two ounces���which is prohibitive.  Not only have many of the so-called  yellow magazines been ruled against,  hut more than one standard publication. For instance, the Delineator, of  New York, a leader in women's publications, which costs one dollar per  year, now ha* to pay ten cents postage  on each copy sent 10 Canada, or $1.20  per annum. And there are other  equally standard, reliable and useful  publications, as much so as any issued  in Canada, treated in the same way.  The postoffice department of the I >o-  minion appears to  be  conducted by a  lot of schoolboys  �����  Query: If it required ten months  for Phoenix to begin to receive mail  over the Great Northern railway, how  long will it take to secure the same  service for Greenwood, providing Duncan Ross, M.P., of Greenwood, devotes the same amount of time and  effort in behalf of that much-to-be-  desired service? An annual subscription to the Pioneer is offered to the  first correct soluion to the query.  ���) Gait Coal        Hay, Grain,  delivered to any part of  the city.
