Most fortunately, as it  happened, not a life was lost nor was  any one even injured by the falling of  the thousands of tons of ore from the  surface to the 250-foot level "or' lower.  The cave took place under the ore bins  and two C. P. R. tracks running past  the bunkers sank, the whole covering  a space some 75 to 100 feet in width  by perhaps 400 to 500 feet in lenth,  and while not expected at just this  time, was not entirely unanticipated at  some time, for the reason that the ore  bodies had been gouged out by a  former management of the mine, without leaving sufficient supports.  At the time mentioned a carman  came running into the engineer's room  from the ore bins, saying that something was the matter out there; whereupon the engineer, John Picthal, went  out to ascertain the trouble. Putting  his head out of one of the windows of  the ore bunkers, he felt the structure  begin to quiver and ran back for his  life, two-thirds of the bunkers going  down into the mine with a crash. He  did not have a second to spare to reach  safety.  The news soon spread throughout  the city, and hundreds went up to the  yawning chasm in the rain to see  where the cave took place, and the  next day the vicinity of the slump was  thronged from early morn till dewy  eve. One C. P. R. track was carried |  down by the massive timbers of the  ore bunkers, the other still remaining  suspended in mid air, held only by  the fishplates and the spikes in the ties.  And yet, across this abyss, taking his  life in his hand, one man���perhaps  more���had the temerity to go, and  that without need of doing so for any  purpose whatever, except to say that  he had thus dared death.  All day Sunday enterprising photographers, professional and amateur,  were on hand in force to get snap  shots of the unusual occurrence, and  already dozens of photographs have been  disposed of. John McRae secured  three excellent views of the cave-in.  On learning of the slump, a few  minutes thereafter, Supt. Rundberg, of  the Dominion Copper Co., at once  ordered warning signs posted all around  tbe cave, and also built fences around  the railway tracks, on both sides, to  keep the curious ones at a safe distance. Nevertheless, many went to the  very brink of the chasm���probably to  see just how far they would fall if the  sides happened to cave in some more.  Early Sunday W. t. Thomas, the  manager, and M. M. Johnson, the  consulting engineer, drove up from  Boundary Falls, it being also one of  Mr. Johnson's regular visits of inspection. Seen by the Pioneer representative, Mr. Thomas said:  "When notified of the cave last  night, our first thought was of the men,  and we were immensely pleased that  not a soul was injured in any way.  The cave is not as serious for us as it  looks, as our shaft is intact and the  hoist is running today as usual, in the  best of shape. While our ore bunkers  are gone, and that is a loss, we will  merely ship a little heavier from our  other mines here, the Idaho and Raw  hide, and in a few days will have  chutes built at the' Brooklyn mine  again and be able, to ship from that  property once more to some extent,  till we can put up new ore bunkers."  As a matter of fact, there are thousands of tons of ore broken down in  the lower levels of the Brooklyn that  can be immediately shipped as soon as  the surface facilities are provided���ore  that conld not have been readily  reached before because of the danger  of caving. For a' time it will be  comparatively cheap '. mining at the  Brooklyn.  For some time work has been going  on in the driving of the drift on the  350-foot level of the Brooklyn under  the city to the company's Idaho mine,  the two being already connected on  the 2 50-foot level. This lower drift  will be continued with no loss of time,  when more ore than ever can be taken  out of the Idahp?,shaft, which is  equipped to handle,a*'large tonnage.  Hid.: the cave ~*^rjehed^three*oV  four hours soonerthan it aTd'"itwoiffd  have taken in one of the C. P. R.  engines and train crews, which, about  4 o'clock that afternoon, took out  eleven cars of Brooklyn ore. As it  happened the C P. R. did not lose an  ore dump even, nor did it have a car  tied up on the east side of the cave.  Among the Railway Men.  ERECT MANY  NEW BUILDINGS  Business and Residence  Structures.  List of  a Number, of  Transfers.  Recent  Supt. R. C. Morgan, of this part of  the Great Northern, was here Tuesday  in his private car.  This week the C. P. R. extra gang  began the work of laying the steel on  the new extension to the Rawhide  spur, for the use of the Dominion  Copper Co. j  G. T. Moir, C. P. R. agent here,  who is to go to Grand Forks, does not  expect to be able to get away till next  week, to take up his new duties with  the same railway.  After several delays, Porter Bros,  bridge men arrived this week, and  began the work of putting in the 532-  foot trestle on Great Northern Victoria  shaft spur for the Granby Co.  A new Boundary railway story is  going the rounds, namely, that the  Kettle Valley lines���which is supposed  to mean the C. P. R.���has acquired  the Midway & Vernon charter, will  build from Curlew to Midway, and  thence over the route of the M. & V.  Boundary Side Lights  Thomas Newby, a Grand Forks  pioneer, was badly injured last week  by being thrown from his horse. An  operation was performed by Drs. New-  combe, Truax and Dickson.  R. Gardom, a 12 year resident of  Midway, who recently resigned to remove to Vancouver, was banqueted by  his friends before leaving. He was in  charge of the custom house at Midway.  Custom receipts in Grand Forks  riding for the month of July are reported to have been as follows by R.  R. Gilpin: Grand Forks, $1,655; Phoenix, $1,653.77; Carson, $65; Cascade,  $35.72; total, $3,40949.  Greenwood Typographical Union  No. 358 was reorganized Monday  evening at Greenwood with the following officers: President, R. Mathison;  vice-president, A. M. Davidson; secretary, J. VV. Grier; treasurer, VV. B.  Willcox; executive committee, F. Sherwood and G. A. Evans. R. P. Petti-  piece, international organizer, was  present from Vancouver. Mr. Petti-  piece also organized a new union, on  the.way he,rei,j��t..Veriion.  Improved conditions generally in  the Boundary are perhaps reflected in  no more striking manner than in the  transfers of realty that have taken place  in Phoenix in the last month or two,  and which are taking place almost  every day. Another -feature"is the  fact "that, in nearly every instance, the  property is purchased for purposes of  improvement as soon as possible. Not  only will there be a number of new  business structures erected here this  summer and fall, but the addition to  residences will be of considerable importance, especially to those who will  occupy them���for the reason that none  are to be had now, so great is the  demand.  Following is a list of some of the  transfers that the Pioneer has been  able to learn of, among others:  Lots r and 2, Block 28, Old Ironsides sub-division, to John Kieniemi,  a Seattle man, who, it is said, has  plans out for a good sized two-story  building, and has ordered the lumber.  J. L. Martin purchased Lot 21,  'Block 18, Old Ironsides sub-division,  on Knob Hill avenue, from Ed.  Brown, a short time ago, and is having  plans drawn and is asking tenders for  the erection of a three-story business  block that will be an ornament to the  avenue.  Danny Deane purchased Lot 14,  Block 18, Old Ironsides sub-division,  on. Victoria avenue, which he expects  to improve later with a three-story  structure. Mr. Deane also purchased  two lots on Knob Hill avenue, east of  the Bellevue hotel, and has given a  contract for the erection of an S-room  house thereon, work to be started immediately.  Some time since John Mcintosh  purchased Lot 3, Block 4, on Old  Ironsides avenue, and erected thereon  a comfortable cottage.  Dan Rankin purchased Lot 8, Block  4, Old Ironsides avenue, and improved  it also with a residence, lie also purchased the west 20 feet of Lot 19, in  Block 8, in same locality.  A. J. Campbell bought Lot 7, Block  4, Old Ironsides avenue, and is just  completing his house.  Peter Tenetti bought Lot tS and  the east 10 feet of Lot 19, Block 8,  Old Ironsides avenue, and will build a  story and a half residence at once, the  contract having been let.  Annie Walters bought Lot 15,  Block 26, adjoining the Walters residence on Victoria avenue, near the  hospital.  Matthew Crook and Andrew Julili  purchased Lots 12, 13 and 14, Block  31, Spion Kop, for purposes of improvement.  has operations well  erection of a resi-  Block 2, Old  Iron-  Today shipping is expected lo be re  sumed at the Brooklyn mine.  Some diamond drilling is expected  lo be done at the Carmi mine.  A force of 20 men is now emloyed  at the Mountain Rose mine of the  Dominion Copper Co., Summit camp.  This week's record of treatment by  the smelter of the Dominion Copper  Co. is a new one for that concern,  6,649 tons> ar*d nexl week's is likely to  be still larger.  The force at the"CarTr5oo:McKinriey  mine is now close toJ3o mdn,' and it  begins to look like old times in Boundary's oldest mining camp.  A bunk house, to accommodate 70  men is being completed by the British  Columbia < Copper Co. at the Oro  Denoro mine, Summit camp, and will  soon be ready for use.  Boundary smelter managers unanimously say that local C. P. R. officials  do everything possible, in their power,  to supply cars and to forward coke  enroute, but the trouble is up higher.  B. C. Copper's treatment for this  week totaled 9,471 tons, as follows:  Mother Lode, 5,093 tons; Oro Denoro,  8S0 tons; Napoleon, 70 tons; Emma,  29 tons; Lone Star, 73 tons; custom  ore, including Snowshoe, 3,326 tons.  The annual meeting of the Dominion  Copper Co. is to be held in a few-  days in New York, when the report for  the fiscal year ending July 31st last  will be submitted to the shareholders,  and some think there may be something heard of  dividend action.  Two or three cars of machinery  arrived a few days, ago for the .Snow-  shoe mine, and the machanics are now  busy installing the second half of the  3o-drill Rand air compressor, and also  in putting in the rope drive, so that the  machine can be operated by electricity.  The Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter  is the only one of the three in the  Boundary, that is not having trouble to  get coke enough to operate at full  capacity. When President Miller  made that coke contract with the  International Coal & Coke Co., it was  a good stroke of business.  One of the three furnaces at the  B. C. Copper Co's smelter was blown'  out last Saturday, leaving two in blast'.'  Lack of coke���the old story���is the  cause. This week it has been nip and  tuck to keep two furnaces in operation,  banking having been resorted to more  than once, when cars of coke were  known to be within reasonable distance.  The fifth giant ore crusher to be  purchased by the Granby Co. from  the Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrooke, Quebec, is now on the way  here, for the Gold Drop terminal of  the company. This little machine,  when installed, weighs a matter of  some 50 tons, or about 100,000  pounds, the freight bill on one car  being about $2,000 alone.  Over  150,000   Tons  of Ore  Were Shipped.  Delayed details of the ore tonnage  sent out from Boundary mines for the  month of July show that the, total of  over 150,000 tons of ore shipped from  the district producers���and treated in  district smelters���establishes a , .iiew  monthly record for the Boundary Output, being several thousands of tons in  excess of any previous month.  In the appended table, it'..will be  noted that the B. C. Copper Co.'s  Mother Lode mine shipped oyer 20,-  000 tons, and the mines of the Dominion Copper Co. over 23,000 ..tons;  but the Granby's output of 80,'oop  tons, although gratifyingly large, is not  up to that company's high water mark,  by any means. The Snowshoe mine  also exceeded all previous ore shipments for one month.

Monday morning  at   eight   o'clock  George Wallace Pratt and Miss   Aliz-  abeth Ferguson were united   in   marriage at the Brooklyn  hotel, and  took  the Great Northern train for a  honeymoon trip to Spokane.    The wedding  was private, and according to the rites  of the Catholic  church, the only  witnesses   being   Mr.   and   Mrs.   James'  Marshall,    with    Rev.   Father   J.   A.  Bedard, O.   M.   I., as   the  officiating  clergyman.     Mr. Pratt is   well  known  in camp, having been   here for several  years one of the  head  machinists in  the Granby machine shops, while Mrs.  Pratt has been a resident  here ' but a  short time, both having many   friends.  Bank dives $3,000 la Prizes.  The Eastern Townships Bank, the  head office of which is at Sherbrooke,  Quebec, is again offering cash prizes  and six medals for prizes on butter  and cheese at the Dominion and provincial exhibition, to be held at Sherbrooke, September 2d to 14th. The  cash prizes this year given by the bank  amount to $600, makng a total of  $3,000 given for tbe same purpose in  the last five years by this bank.  ��� �������������������������������������������������  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE. *"*" 7 ��7 ;  The following table gives thc ore shipments of Boundary  mines tor 1900,  for  1901. lor  1902. for 1903, for 1004, for 1905, for 1906, aud igof. as reported 10 tbe Phoenix Pioneer���  Past     1  Mink.

One of the magazines that is worth  while for any manor woman to read.  ���and one of the really useful publications, that must suffer from the new-  second-class postal regulations���is  Success. The following from a.recent  issue of Success, on the above subject,  shows how a bright, sunny disposition  is one of the best umbrellas in this vale  of tears:  There are some characters. wHo.  carry their wealth with ���therri,_who are  rich without money. They do not  need palatial homes or a large bank-  But there are others, ,'t account. They.are welcome everywhere because/ they have that which  money cannot" buy���a genial, helpful,  sunny, cheerful disposition.  Of course, everybody   wants   them,  because it is a joy to  be  with them  Everybody  loves   the   sunshine   and  I hates the shadows and the gloom.  !     There is no bank account that can  balance a  sweet, gracious  personality:  no material wealth can match a sunny  heart, an ability to radiate helpfulness.  and sweetness.  But such.graces and charms never  live with selfishness or self-seeking. It  is the people who have something to  give, not who are trying to get something, that are wanted everywhere.

Rockefeller is the head.  Foi a concrete intance, take the so-  called  C. P. R. Associated  Press service furnished to the papers of the west  by Canada's greatest railway.    We say  so-called, advisedly, for it is admitted  by any one who knows anything about  the matter, that this   press   service  is  about  the   worst  apology  imaginable  for the Associated Press of the United  States.    In fact, it is not in   the   least  what it purports to be, but is  a miserable hodge-podge gathered together by  some $40-aimonth clerk   in   an   office  of the  C. P. R.   telegraphs���a  clerk  who evidently does not know the   first  thing about what is real news.  If a newspaper in British   Columbia  wishes this service, all well and  good;  it can take and pay a big price for  it,  or go without entirely, as the C. P. R.  has seen to the   matter   of opposition  in this line.    Now comes   the  Nelson  News, the most progtessive daily in  a I  town of similar size  in   Canada,   with  the statement that the CP.R. has announced that  the antediluvian   press  service heretofore furnished that  daily  will hereafter cost three times as much  as in the past.

If the service  was   resonably   decent,   F.  J. Deane,  theowner of the News, might think   it  worth     while    to   , run    his    credit  to have it.

This includes new and renewed subscriptions, and is merely the additional  postage that must be paid for American delivery.  L _.. -_J  John Sampson is foreman at the  Brooklyn mine, in this camp, where  the extensive falling in occurred last  Saturday evening. So far as known,  however, he is not a lineal decendent  of Sampson, the gentleman of Biblical  times, who by main strength lore out  the pillars of the temple, thus peimit-  ting the walls to fall in.  It is indeed a pity that the foolkiller  does not visit Phoenix occasionally.  Last Sunday one or two men, evidently  with extra wheels in their heads,  walked across the yawning chasm at  the Brooklyn mine, made by the cave  in, on the C. P. R. track and ties, the  whole being suspended perhaps 50 or  100 feet in the air, and only held together by the bolts and fishplates, for  a distance of about 75 feet. And this  was done, notwithstanding the fences  and warning signs put up by Supt  Rundberg of the Dominion Copper  Co. An enterprising amateur photographer snapped one of the wheel-  headed ones, who can now see just  how many kinds of a jackass he was.  The lid was pushed down a little  tighter than usual last Saturday in  Phoenix���when the Brooklyn mine  had the extensive cave-in. And Saturday was the monthly payday in camp,  too.  Throughout the length and breadth  of this great province of British Columbia, there is but one municipality  that has more than the regulation  number of three police and licensing  commissioners; and that favored city  of Phoenix, which, according to the  official government organ, the British  Columbia Gazette, now has four of  these useful officials. There is nothing  like being right up to the minute, but  presumably there has been a miscue  somewhere in the attorney-general's  department at Victoria.  It is understood that \V. R. William'-,  for so many years police magistrate of  Phoenix, intends shortly to return to  this city, after staying in Regina for a  time. Seemingly, the prairies are not  all they have been cracked up to be, at  least for some people, and the judge  will hie himself back to the Boundary  ���as so many have done before him���  to see what is doing here these days.  It will be surprising if the judge does  not get into some political game, for it  is pretty well understood among the  knowing ones that a Dominion election is not so very far off.  "PERUNA WORKED WOND  Says a Weli-Known Canadian.  -**5*_S**S'-*5**5ES2S*^^  MR. P. BKICN.  Mr. P. Brion, Accountant, residing at 28 Third street, Limoilou, Quebec,  writes:  "The fatigues entailed by my duties as accountant began to weaken my  system about a year ago. I felt that I would not long be able to withstand  the severe strain upon my nerves, as, a thing unknown to me before, I  would long for office hows to be orer In order tc rest.  "I gradually grew weaker aad a tew months later my sight was Impaired. 1 then broke down completely and was obliged to take my bed. 1  waa also suffering from palpitation ot the heart  "After a few weeks' treatment by a local physician, I was in the same critical condition, and a* the doctor held oat no great prospects for me, 1 decided to experiment on myself.  "I took several remedies advertised as tonics, bat did not dartre any  benefit.  ������Peruna waa then given a trial, and before I had taker. It a week I felt  my condition Improving. After a few weeks more had elapsed, during  which time I followed the directions carefully, my shattered nervous  system became firmer, my sight stronger and I hoped to be out soon again.  "My expectations were realized, for in three weeks I assumed my dattes  as accountant at the office.  "Peruna. certainly worked wonders on my system, and for persona rundown from overwork, I believe It Is the moat efficacious tonic "  Pe-ru-iia Is a Systemic Catarrh  Remedy, Especially Adapted  to Cases of Nervous Prostration, Caused By Overwork, Mental Strain  Or Extreme Summer Heat.

IK latitudes where warm weather is of  long  eontinuance,  the  inhabitants  become more or less accustomed to it.  In Temperate Zones, however, where  the change from winter to summer is  great, the system is sometimes poorly  prepared to meet the exigencies of hot  weather. This is the cause of much  sickness.  Stomach catarrh, indigestion and dyspepsia are not among the least of summer ailments.  When the digestion is disturbed, the  assimilation is also  affected, and as a  result the body does  not receive the  nourishment it should. Lassitude,  weakness, brain fag, loss of flesh and  nervous' prostration are the natural  results.  What is needed is a remedy that will  restore the digestive organs to their  normal condition.  Such a remedy has been found in.  Pernna. It has proven itself of priceless value In thousands of cases of thla  kind.  Its action has been seemingly miraculous in restoring some patients who had  given up all hope of reeavery.  But there ia nothing strange about  Peruna's action. It simply tones up  tbe mucous membranes of tbe organs  involved restoring  them    to    their  PERU-MA'S  BENEFICtAJ.

That person who has sound, healthy  mucous membranes lining tbe entire  digestive tract is well-guarded *_-*'-fft  the usual summer ailment*.  Peruna is the means whereby to attain this most desirable condition.  If you suffer from any of tbe above*  mentioned symptoms, try a bottle ot  Peruna.

Peck McSwain, the near poet and  printer laureate, who disappeared from  East Kootenay recently, insists on remaining lost���up to the last account.  MS  Saturday and Sunday the party of  British journalists, who have been  touring Canada and British Columbia  as the guests of the C. P. R., were in  Rossland and Nelson���but nary a  squint did they hayeof the Boundary,  Canada's greatest copper camp. George  Ham, of the C P. R. publicity department was in charge, and that  means they all had the best possible  time. But George himself seems to  have left the Boundary from his itinerary when playing the part of host tc  parties of travellers. Perhaps Mr.  Ham or some one of the other thousands of employees of the railway that  makes $22,000,000 profit per year, can  tell why this is thus.  MS  The Alberta Press Association will  shortly do something out of the ordinary, even for newspaper men. The  members will meet in annual convention at Cranbrook, B. C. This happens because "Old Man" Simpson, of  the Cranbrook Herald, and who is not  a resident of Alberta, is president of  the association. On September 13th  this energetic aggregation of pencil I  pushers will foregather at Cranbrook  and inspect the "Old Man's" banana  belt in the neighborhood of that town,  at times when they are not discussing  how to round up the delinquent subscriber, or the best way to boost for  one's own town. It is no small compliment to the fourth estate in this  province that the annual convention  for another province should be held in  British Columbia. Those editors will  have a jolly good time, however, with  Fred Simpson to pilot them. And  Cranbrook will lose nothing, one* may  be sure, through the energy of the  Herald proprietor.  MS  Some tons of Uncle Tim's fall catalogues have been dumped into British  Columbia in the last week or two, and  of course the Boundary was not forgotten. The average man in this  province (or his wife), as he turns over  the publication and reveals the bargains  (?), should think twice before he buys  something a few thousand miles away  chat he cannot see, and compare it  with the goods his local dealer sells,  which can be examined, compared and  exchanged if desired, without extra  expense; and not only that, can usually  be had on credit. Though the cost  may be more, is it not worth it in the  end?   The intense itching characteristic of  salt rheum and eczema is instantly  allayed by applying Chamberlain's  Salve. As a cure for skin disease this  salve is unequalled. For sale by all  druggists.  Ore Tonnage lor Southeast Kootenay.
