The shipments for March were  much in excess of any other month,  this being accounted lor in the fact  that the entire battery of eight furnaces  at the company's smelter were in  blast every hour of the 31 days, nothing  in the way of fuel or car "shortage interfering. In April the improvements  at the smelter were commenced, connecting up the furnaces with the steel  flue dtist chamber, etc., andcontinued  throughthe succeeding months, two  furnaces being out of commission at  times. .   ,   .  For comparative purposes, we give  herewith the Granby ore shipments, by  months, for this year as follows:  I  ^riQ.^i.^i.��.iuL^kAi.��.ij.i.i.i.��.i.i.i.i.iXi.t1i.i.i.i^.i1^i.i^.��1j^,  HotWeathe  Drinks  ORANGE PHOSPHATE WINE,  ^ 65 Cents per Bottle  RASPBERRY VINEGAR,  60 Cents per Bottle  STRAWBERRY   WINE,  65 Cents per Bottle  BLACK   CURRANT   WINE,  65 Cents per Bottle  GRAPE   JUICE,   40 Cents per Bottle  LIME   JUICE,   65 Cents  per  Bottle  LEMONADE POWDER, 65c.

From,lhe.aboye.i\Will be. seen^thaf  the shipments for the first seven  months of 1908 are nearly double those  of 1907. During the first1 six months  of last year, however, there was one  handicap after another until May when  the Granby furnaces, in common with  all other smelters in the Boundary had  to close down on account ot the fuel  shortage resulting from a strike in the  Crow's Nest Pass.  The shipments for, the prestn'  month will also be somewhat small on  account of the fear ��� of fuel shortage occasioned by the Fernie fire.  Last week only four furnaces of the  battery of eiglit at the smelter were in  blast. This week six are in commission.  The company, however, are making  good use of the opportunity to rush the  improvements at the smelter and will  probably have them completed earlier  than intended���end of the year���and  be ready in good time for the advancing copper market.  By the end of the year the Granby  smelter should be in shape to handle  130,000 tons monthly. With the present equipment at the mines' this  amount of ore can be readily supplied,  and indeed there is little "doubt but  that the Granby mines can furnish  5000 tons of ore every 24 hours if  required.

Further subscriptions to the Fernie  fire fund have been received as follows:  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  Greenwood ..contributed $500 and a  supply of clothing, to Fernie relief.  .

The officials of the road promised an immediate readjustment on  the rates between the Boundary and  Vancouver, which would allow of the  association closing a contract for  fifteen cars of produce from the valley  for the Australian market.  In regards to the adjustment of the  rates to other points the officials promised that these would have their consideration and that an adjustment  would be made.

A passenger from the Boundary  coming in last night says the country  looks very dried up and there has been  little or no rain for a month past.  The consequence is that there is grave  d.tnger from any fires starting. Recently there was quite a fair sized fire  between Grand Forks and Eholt which  is still smouldering and numerous other  small fires along the CP.R. right of way  have kept the section men busily engaged. Along the line of the Great  Northern matters are somewhat worse.  Between B C. junction and Phoenix a  fire of considerable proportions was  being fought yesterday and in the afternoon another fire started in the timber  about a mile east of Grand Forks.  Rain is the paramount necessity at  the present moment.���Thursday's  News.  FIRE DESTROYES  MACHINE SHOPS  Of Dominion "Copper Co.   at  " Boundary Falls.  The large machine shops and blacksmith shop of the Dominion Copper  company adjoining the Boundary Falls-  smelter, together with the entire  machinery ; plant, was destroyed , by  fire on Thursday evening. ���  The fire started at 9.30 and spread  so quickly throughout the building  that there was soon no hope of, saving  it, and the , smelter itself was in imminent' danger. The entire smelter  force of men were put to work with"  the company's fire appliances and only  after some hours of stubborn fighting  on the part of the men, was the reduc  tion plant out of danger. <���  The destruction of the machine shop  will mean a big loss to the company  as it was fully equipped with the most  modern machinery for repairing, etc.  The building will probably be  rebuilt.  GOLDEN ZONE  ,; -LOQKS.PJ^MISJNG  New   Stamp Mill is Giving       Every..Satisfaction.  . The Golden Zone, the prop.. tj.,���Mr.  Hediey, owned by Paul Broadhageri,  J. J. Marks and J. Murphy, where "a  new five-stamp mill was recently put  in operation, is giving every satisfaction.  The Gazette has. the following to say  regarding it:  The property is located on a high  plateau east of the main Twenty-mile  creek, and north of the east fork of the  same, and almost directly north of the  Nickel Plate. It is not more than 12  miles from Hediey, but it is at an  altitude of about 6000 feet above sea  level, while Hediey is about 1700.  The Golden Zone group consists of  four claims, the Irish Boy, B. C, Golden Zone and Silver Bell, staked in an  easterly and westerly direction, the  Irish boy being furthest east. The  workings, are on the Golden Zone, but  almost at the B. C. line. The mill  was put'up on the workings near the  old cabin. There was a good showing  at this point on our former visit but  no development beyond a number of  open cuts, the principal development  at that time being a 6ofoot shaft about  150 yards past the present showings.  Sine: then a 30 foot shaft has been  sunk from which the mine hoist can  elevate the ore and dump it into the  mill ore bins.  The mill is equipped with one battery of five stamps, athough everything is in readiness to add five more,  even to the mortar beds and cam shaft. |  The stamps weigh 1050 lbs. The ore  bin is outside the building elevated on  a strong, high trestle and has a capacity of too tons, between it and the  battery frame is placed a rock crusher  of the Blake pattern, with 6x10 inch  jaw, the ore passing over a ten foot  grizzly before reaching crusher.  A 40 mesh screen is being used, and  the ore is so friable that the duty per  stamp exceeds 4 tons per diem.  An improved Wilfley handles the  tailings that pass from the apron, and  appears to make a very complete concentration, but uses -,i great deal of  water which is a slight drawback where  water is scarce.  The power is furnished by a 30 h.p.  engine and a 40 h.p. boiler, and seems  ample, while the boiler is claimed to be  economical.  The shaft is equipped with a Jenckes  hoist 5x1; double cylinder and capable  of going down 200 feet with a half ton  load, while a No. 5 Cameron pump  will take care of the water.  Mr. SE. Hamilton is in charge of the  mill, and opposite shifts taken by F.P.  Howard and J.A. McDonald.  A glory hole is being started at  the  west of the ore bin, and from it also the  hoist can take ore and drop it   in  the  It is  the intention  to   sink  ift out under  BonndaryJIining Notes  ..

The Dominion Copper company's  smelter treated 2,204 tons of ore this  week, as follows: Brooklyn, 532; Rawhide, 1267; Sunset, 393; Mountain  Rose,   42.

On account of the fuel shortage  resulting from the Fernie fire, the  Dominion Copper company's smelter  and mines were shut down on Wednesday, and the treatment and shipments are accordingly reduced this  week. The company, however, have  arranged for a supply of coke which  is now en route from the coast, and  operations are expected to resume on  Monday.  Mlnstel Maids Coming.

The strength in the copper market,  which has been manifested increasingly  during the lait month, reflect an un  questionable improvement in the general busiesss situtation. Theoptimistc  reports have not been confined to the  copper market, but have come also  from many other lines of business,  and the improvement is evidenced,  moreover, by the reduction in the  number of idle freight cars.

However, it will not be safe to look  for a quick retui n of the high prices  for copper that prevailed in 1906 and  1907. There is fairly large stock of  refined copper on ' hand and several  new and important supplies are now  being added to the market, especially  the outputs of Ely and Cananea. At  the begining of 1907, the unsold stock  competition at Nelson fair.  Tmi. MM.   Tbi   Fr..

During the first half of 1908  there was a restriction of output  and  the withdrawal from   the supply,   for  domestic consumption and for export,  reduced the stock.    Just how   much  was  the  reduction  is uncertain,   no  Statistics  being   available.1   However,  it is believed that the unsold stock'  of  refiined copper on July   i,   1908, did  not exceed 70,000,000 lb., and it may  have been  considerably   smaller   than  that    The question   that will   determine the price in   the   near  future  is  whether  consumption    will-   increase  faster than thenewproduction (including the restoration of old production).  At present,  the outlook  in the  race  j appears to be in favor of consumption,  but production will doubtless   make  a  good showing and the  stock   still   on  hand will be a retaining factor.���Engineering and Mining Journal.

As  husbands they are convenient,   though  not always on hand; as beaux they are  by no m<-an<5 "matchless."     Tney are  most   agreeable   as   visitors, handy at  state fairs, and indispensible  at oyster  saloons.    They are splendid as escorts  for some other   fellow's wife or   sister,  and as friends they are better than women.    As  our   fathers they are inexpressibly grand.     A man may be   a  failure in business, a   wreck   in constitution,   not enough to boast of for  beauty,  nothing   as to wit,   less   than  nothing as  a   legislator for   women's  rights, and.not very brilliant as a member of the^i_ress,;but if ourJa^herrtWe.  overlook shortcomings and   cover his  peccadilloes with -the divine mantle of  chanty., u rhen, as our husbands, how  we love to:parade them as paragons!  In the sublime language of the poet:  We'll lie for'em,  We'll cry for 'em  And if we could we'd fly for 'em;  We'd do anything but die for 'em.  BaaterY Phlloiopbv.���XXXVH.

(By Prof. J. Porter, B ��.)  The group of  leading   men    who  founded   Columbian   Colledge   fifteen  years ago were fully alive to   the   | os-  sibilities before; and successive boards  of management have done  their  best  to keep it abreast of provincial development.    Secondary education of a certain   type,   a  divinity school to   tra;n  men for a particular field of work; and  an arts,   curriculum   of a  sufficiently  high  grade  to  permit    of   complete  affiliation with one of the large eastern  universities���these have  marked successive stages of its growth into an   institution of university  rank.    But  the  modern university college has  to take  account of the field of applied science  as well; and Principal Sipprell foresaw  that, both for  educational   and   practical   reasons,   the   field   must   be   oc  cupied at an early date.     It   was  not,  however,   until   the  college   obtained  the   science   equipment    of   Victoria  University, Toronto, that   he  saw  his  way clear to making a  start.    Negotiations were then opened with the Ontario School of Piactical Science   (now  the   Faculty  of  Engineeting   in    the  University of Toronto).    Certain  additions had to be made to the   professorial staff and equipment, after  which  affiliation   was   granted.    Under line  terms of   the  agreement,   the   college  was at once allowed to   undertake  ihe  first year's work of  the   Toronto   Engineering course.    This was an agreement which was likely to prove of sei-  vice to many students in the province,  more especially as something   like  individual  teaching  could   be  given   to  them during the  all-important   period  when   they   were   engaged  with   new  conceptions in mathematics  and   mechanics.    They would   then   be   in   a  much better position to keep  up  with  the   work of  the   second    and    third  years on their removal to Toronto)  This was the original of the S., P.  S. course of Columbian College, j It  is open to matriculated students of a  recognized Canadian university, and  lasts for one year. Students in civil  and mining engineering take algebra  trigonometry, analytical and descriptive geometry, drawing and topography, surveyingJ-ctur-��o and field-work*,  mechanics, chemical lectures and laboratory work, and mineralogy. Students in mechanical and electrical engineering omit topographical drawing,  survey-work in the field, and mineralogy, but take up instead machine  drawing, and electrical lecaures and  laboratory work. The arrangements  which were necessary to meet the  stringent requirements of Toronto rather pressed on the college resourse6  for a year or two; but having been  successfully met, the institution was  put in a position to undertake other  work in the field of applied science for  which there existed a very strong case  in the province.  ,  prospectors' course.  People who were practically inter  ested in mining were frequently asking  for a course which would only require a limited period of attendance  at college. It was well known that  many of them were trying such unsatisfactory devices as correspondence  courses in their desire to learn how  to recognize the important minerals,  explore for them intelligently, estimate  the value of mineral deposit, and secure a legal title. My colleague Professor Burwash drew up a syllabus,  and made the necessary arrangements  to carry it out. The mmeralogical  work included laboratory demonstrations on the minerals usually sought  by the prospector, together with practical blowpipe testing. The geological work consisted of a study of the  rocks commonly met-with in prospecting in this province. The same  practical aim led to the cutting down  of the chemistry to the general prin  ciples involved in assaying and the  tieatment of ores. It was necessary  to go into mining law in detail, and  this was a part of the work for which  ercumstances had given Professor  Burwash some special opportunities to  gain experience. The performance by  the students of fire assay for silver and  gold completed the course.  ADAPTED SCIENCE   COURSE.  The idea of Principal Sipprell have  received their fullest development in  the Adapted Science Course, the object of which is to give students who  are intended for industrial careers such  training as will fit them to profit by  those early years of practical life when  their interest in their daily. ..work is  keen, and their leisure sufficient, if  properly turned to account, to fit them  fur positions of responsibility. It has  become quite impossible at the present  day for the workman who is bent on  self-improvement  to avail himself of  the stores of information contained in  technical periodicals arid the manuals  for specialists, unless he possess u  familiar acquaintance with a certain  range of mathematics applied mechanics  and the physical science. The adapted science course has been expressly  framed to supply this scientific training, and at the same time to-give such  instruction in the laboratory and. dialing room as will make its practical  application ea*y. The course follows  lines which have been already tested in  the technical schools ol England and  Scotland. Certain changes-in detiiils  have been necessary, owing to the  points of difference in engineering  practice between the Pacific and the  old world. In this connection it lis  a pleasing duty to acknowledge the  extent of our indebtedness to. the chief  inspector of boilers, Mr. John Peck.  His official opportunities for knowing  everything connected with engine and  boiler practice in the province, combined with his varied professional knowledge and his well known interest in  education, rendered his advice of the  greatest value; and we hive . freely  availed ourselves of it.  The principles of mechanical engineering which bear on every industry  must be given the central place in any  such plan of study. The work groups  itself naturally round the steam engine  which affords by far the most useful  series of object-lessons in the science  of energy and the principles of mechanism that we can have at /present.  I am glad to be able to say that an  experimental engine and boiler, and a  small dynamo will be available for our  use in the laboratory next session; and  will be possible by their aid to illustrate  numerous points which are hardly to  be grasped otherwise.  The course of study extends over  two years; but a third year will be desirable in the future as the department  grows. The technical extent of the  work of the first can be roughly gauged  by the fact that it takes in the theoretical knowledge required for the provincial certificate qf second-class engin-  eer;while the second year's work includes the theoretical requirements for the  first-class certificates of both the provincial authorities and the Board of  Trade. The special aim of the course  however, is to lay a foundation of thoroughly mastered principles, on which  can be arranged the special knowledge  which ev.ry man who aims at holding  a responsible position must have ready  for use. The work of the second .year  is much more technical. ,  WE EXCEL IN PRINTING  T.

In discussing metal prices, the head  of one of the leading copper selling  agencies in New York is quoted as saying:  "The recent buying of copper has  not been by the small consumer, but  by the General Electric, Western Electric and Connecticut   brass  interests.'  "Some of the producing interests are  refusing to sell on long time deliveries.  Most of-the agencies have sold their  August copper and there has been a  good inquiry lor September, Octo.'.er  and November delivery, but why  should the producers sell so far ahead  upon a rising market?  "There is now no large supply of  copper to be absorbed and the new  copper that will come forward from  Utah Copper, Greene-Cananea, Ely  and the Boundary will find a ready  market."  "The demand for the metal is legitimate. The General Electric company  when operating to full capacity, consumes 5,000,000 pounds of copper  per month. Last fall its consumption  was down as low as 1,500,000 pounds  per month, while it is now between  3,000,000 an 4,000,000 pounds per  month. This will explain the increas  ing demand for the metal and why the  price is advancing."  PALACE LIVERY STABLES  MURDOCK MclNT.RE, Prop.  35  Horses,   Full   Liyety   Equipment,.

She possesses a  voice that is streets above vaudeville,  and shows evidences of good training.  Miss Dare also has a winning manner  that captivates an audience the minute she appears on the stage, while  her face and figure must be the envy  of every soubrette on the circuit".���  Vancouver World.  "Her ability in recital is among the  very best."���Minneapolis Tribune.  " Gloria Dare, the prima donna soprano, gave a genuine surpuse. Her  work of the old English style, and  her songs and recitations,'In the land of  the Buffalo,' made a decided hit with  the audience. She is by lar the best  singing, cominedienne seen at the  Grand."���Tacoma Ledger.  "Gloria Dare, a singer. of real merit  and strong personality, completely  captured her audience, by her rendition of popular songs and dramatic  offerings. Miss Dare has a very wide  range and possesses an unusually  sweet voice which she uses to advantage. Her rendition of "Love me and  the World is Mine," was meet with  applause, and several encores were  called for."���Edmonton   lournal.  bi��tjXix&i��LJUVJUUk^^     ��!��jp-J��l>i��aa.'^,*i^CI3G3X!JCI.
