Ftesh Fmit and Vegetables Attkv'mg Daily  Coke supply for the Boundary smelters is still an uncertain quantity, resulting from the tecent crippling by  fire of the shipping facilities al the  Fernie ovens. The Fernie coke people,  however, have informed the mining  companies that regular shipments will  commence agnin on August 26th.  The smelter and mines ol the Dominion Copper company have now  been tied up for nearly two weeks for  lack of fuel. The company arranged  for a supply of coke from the coast,  but through'delay of the C.P.R. it has  not arrived as yet. Manager P. F.  Roosa was' in Nelson on Thursday  conferring with the railway officials,  who promised a shipment to reach the  smeller tomorrow, and general operations may be expected to resume on  Monday or Tuesday.  The Granby smelter has been operating five furnaces during the past week,  but coke has been consumed sparingly,  Interviewed in Spokane, jay. P.  Graves, general manager of the com  pany, denied any possibility of the  plant shutting down. When assured  of sufficient coke the company will  operate at regular capacity again.  The Snowshoe property has not resumed as yet on account of ihe uncertainty of the coke situation, but instructions to begin operations are now  being expected daily.  The only mining company in the  Boundary not affected by the coke  shortage from the Crow's Nest Pass is  the B.C. Copper, whose ore shipment.'  and   smelter   treatment   for  the   past  week, ranged    around    ihe   highwater  mark. Coke for B. C. Copper comes  from Coleman, Alberta, and the shipments were not interfered with by the  recent Pass fire.  FATAL BLASTING  " AT MOTHER LODE  Flying Rock  Goes   Through  Roof of Cottage.  A sad accident occurred at Mother  Lode on Monday afternoon at four  o'clock, as a result of which the three-  year-old daughter of James Dimmick  is dead and Mrs. Dimmick lies in  the Greenwood hospital in a precarious  condition.  Rock was being blasted from a stope  to a quarry when a flying peice went  1 hrough the roof of trie cottage occupied by James Dimmick; and family.  Mrs. Dimmick had boih legs broken  above the knees, and? the little girl  who had been on her mother's knee  also had a leg broken 'und died shortly  after the accident.   ';������::$.'���'���.  A younger child was, asleep in a bauy  carriage, and although the carriage was  smashed the baby was uninjured. Dr.  Gibbs, of Selkerk, Man., who was  visiting at. the mine rendered prompt  attendance. .���..        v. j)  An inquest was held on Wednesday.  The mine officials take great precautions against such accidents and in  this particular instancfe appear to have  done everything possible." There are  special shelters for those around the  mine while blasting is being done, and  every person was specially warned and  the signal whistle sounded unusually  long. In this case [40 per cent dynamite was used instead of the usual 50  per cent. The Dimrnick cottage is the  nearest building to the mine.  Boundary Side lights  J. A. Tuzo is inspecting his mineral  claims at Beaverdell. ���.  Forest fires on the North Fork are  gradually being got under control.  J. L.

Trouble with C.P.R. striking machinists at Eholt has been brewing all  week. Early in the week a bunch of  strike-brsakers arrived on the scene  and were not given a very cordial reception. Constable Docksteader was  summoned late Monday evening and  went down to quiet things. In a fracas  during the early part of the evening  several shots were fired. The citizens  of Eholt held a meeting on Tuesday  evening and have been endeavoring to  pacify the strikers.  Picnic in tie Park.  The scholars of tie Methodist Sunday school, and the fMder folk ol the  church as well, hadawierry afternoon  in the park on iWedhesday. Swings,  games,  foot rac.es,; e^'f;, provided  gen  etal amusement}-'wl/Sit.vrcrti'.* followed  by a bountiful repast. The long tables'  in the park were laden with all the  dainty edibles''of the, season, to 'which  those present did ample justice. It  was a genuine field day for the children  rOEf"^       ciinarinlon/lanl'  of men busy for the  the road  up  New Speed Record for C. P. R.  A new speed record for the distance  from Kamloops to Revelstoke, 130  miles, was established Saturday by an  engine, whose driver, Danhvlurray, was  hurrying to the bedside of his dying  daughter. The girl had teen burned,  and officials of the Canadian Pacific  road cleared the track of/other traffic  to allow Murray to make! a fast trip.  He did the distance at about a mile a  minute rate. His daughter was dead  when he arrived.   ,  Chief of Police Assaulted.  Chief  of Police   Gunn   received  Q. W. Rtimberger Visits Piince Ruperl.  ��� George W. Rumberger returned  borne on Thursday evebing after a  month's trip up the cdast, visiting  Prince Rupert, and Port Essington on  the Skeena river. Mr.j Rumberger  considers the prospects of the G.T.P.  rough handling late Saturday night by terminus for a city are very bright  a number of Swedes in the lower town.   It has an ideal ha!bor with 70 feet of  water, and well protected. A large  number of steamers call there on their  way up and down the north coast, and  when the new railway is completed  Prince Rupert should be a great commercial port. A large (number of  visitors arrive daily but none are opening in business. There are three hotels  although none are licensed.  On Sunday Ben Saafstrom, Gus Larson  Axel Strand, Chas. Lagar, F. Peterson  and W. Anderson were arrested on a  charge of assaulting a peace officer in  the discharge of his duty. They appeared before Magistrate Hood on  Thursday for a preliminary hearing.  Saafstrom, Larson and Strand were  sent up for trial at Greenwood court,  the charge against the others being withdrawn. Barristers Spence, Black and  McLeod, of Greenwood, were the legal  lights at the hearing.  CHICAGO CAPITALISTS  BUY TIMBER LAND  Will  Erect   Lumber  Mill  on  Smelter Lake.  T. H. Rea, formerly with the Betts  & Hesperus company, operating on  Hardy mountain, now making Chicago  his headquarters, arrived in Grand  Forks the latter part of last week in  company with E. B. Dennison and  and George Mayer, also of Chicago,  who came to the Boundary to examine  the timber limits up the North Fork  of Kettle River.  On their return from the land they  stated that the limits passed their expectations, and the deal was closed for  $8000. These limits compose seven  full sized limits and are situated on  McFarlane creek, a tributary of the  North Fork of the Kettle river, about  55 miles north, and were owned by  Messrs. Snyder, Grier, Fripp and Horner, of Grand Forks. The buyers  estimate that the limits will run 75,000  feet to the acre. It is understood that  Dennison and Mayer intend to form a  company to handle this timber and  that a mill will be erected on Smelter  lake, with a capacity of 100,000 feet  of lumber a day.  FINE MIDWAY AT THE   FAIR.  Celebrated  Attractions  10 Come,   Says Co��-  Srore.  "Many eastern concessionaries en  route for the Seattle exposition, are  planning to start west this fall, and we  are written to daily for space at the  Interstate fair," said Manager Cosgrove  yesterday. "Three of the most prominent that have applied for space are  the ISskimo vilhage, the Iggorote village  and the alligator farm. All these  are famous eastern attractions which  have made thousands of dollars at all  the big eastern parks; in fact, all these  three have been featured at Coney  Island.  "These three big features with the  mammoth wild west show now being  organized by Arthur Dexter, the Alaskan exhibition, which has already been  booked, and the great Parker shows,  which occupy the midway proper, will  make a line of attractions never before  equalled at a northwestern fair, and as  good, even, as those seen at the Portland exposition. In addition to the  above-named shows, the big airship  tent will be open daily for visitors and  an experienced lecturer will explain all  the fine points of the famous flying  machine.  J. A. McMaster was in Eholt for a  few days this week. While there he  assisted the Eholt citizens in peacemaking with the strikers.  E. Spraggett,  has had a crew  past few weeks repairing  the North Fork.  The licence commissioners at Grand  Forks are cutting the licences in the  city.down to seven, three hotels not  being granted licences.  Pasquale Viro appeared before Magistrate Hardy of Midway on Tuesday  on a charge of shooting grouse out of  season, and was fined $10 andcosts.  The lieutenant-governor has proclaimed a close season for willow  grouse in the counties of Yale, Cariboo  and Kootenay, between August 31 and  September 30, 1908, inclusive.  Work has been completed on the  grade on the Mother Lode branch by  Tierney & Co. It is expected they  will shift their plant and put the railway at Boundary Falls in shape.  Charles Thomet of Midway, Henry  Pittendrigh of Rock Creek, Wilfrid  Cookston of Beaverdell, Sidney Oliver  and Elmore Collier of Greenwood have  been appointed deputy game Wardens.  On Thursday evening of last week  the Grand Forks fire brigade gave a  farewell smoker to I. A.- Dinsmore, who  was a captain of the brigade for many  years. He was presented.with a beautiful, diamond pin_accomi>anied by an  address.      * :'.'-���. :���-..__  R. H.  Hutchins, formerly   superintendent of the Mother   Lode,   was   in  the city last week.     For the past year  Mr. Hutchins was 111 Corea in   charge  of a free miller.     He says the richest  gold mines he has seen are in   Corea,  but he doesn't like   clubbing   men   to  get a day's work out of them.    He was  under a three years' contract, but could  only stand   one   year.    The   Coreans  are very much dissatisfied with Japanese rule which, he thinks,   will   eventually end in general upraising, assisted  by the people   of   Manchuria.     While  in Japan he saw   a   caseball   game  at  which   there   were   10,000   spectators  and the only person  allowed   to  talk  out loud was  the   umpire.    Bleachers  and fans are led   off the   field   there.  The Japs are really in the 2.02 class.  ���Ledge.  Bank Changes.  The Midway branch of the Eastern  Townships bank, which has heretofore  had a resident manager and was open  daily, will in future be open on Wednesdays only, and will be in charge of  one of the staff of the Grand Forks  branch. T. C. Brine, who has been  manager at Midway for the past year,  now becomes the agent at Phoenix.  Mr. Longhurst will remain here for a  month after which he will receive another appointment. Mr. Brine goes  to Midway today and will return Monday with Mrs. Brine.  GOOD ORE AT  GOLDEN EAGLE  Manager Thompson Reports  Find to Head Office.  J. A. Thompson, M. E., manager of  the Golden Eagle mine on the North  Fork has made a report of a recent  strike on the property to the head  office in Vancouver. The ore body  was struck at a point 160 feet from the  surface in a crosscut tunnel, which was  driven to tap below the lowest level of  the 150 foot shaft. The new strike  appears to be permanent as three shifts  per day are still drifting on this ore  body, which averages 4 feet between  walls, and assays good pay values,  principally in gold. This ledge is  trending across the strike of two other  ore bodies, from 4 to 10 feet wide,  which has been opened up by shafts,  from which some 250 tons of ore have  been shipped to the smelters, giving  good returns. The tunnel will open up  three ore bodies above referred to at a  depth of about 175 feet.  The mine is under bond to a syndicate of Vancouver people and is located near Bannock City on the North  Fork of the Kettle river, 1800 feet distant andabout 1000 feet above the K.  V.L. railway. .  It was��� evident to what extent the  syndicate are confident in their property  that at a meeting held recently a reso-  ution was passed to sell no more syndicate interests to other than the present  members. It also goes further to show  another evidence of the wealth locked  up in British Columbia and the many  more of the same valuable assets to  Canada that will be developed when  sufficient numbers of our Canadian  people get education and confidence  in mining���wild-cat days being a thing  of the past and mining becomes an  industry to pay on its own merits only.  IN. OFFICIALS  i VISIT PHOENIX  Something New in Pboenlx.  ���:���'-��� r  Messrs. Muno & Libby have just  received the choicest and Jargest consignment of pictures, irames and  mouldings ever shipped into the in-  interior, in fact they have everything found in an up to date art store.  They have opened up in the -Summit  Block, next to E. Black's, and intend:  to do all kinds of portrait enlarging  from glass painting up to genuine oil.  This is the first store of the kind in the  Bouhdarjr'an'd ~ rmistr- be- seeri*-.to ..be.  appreciated. They expect to be ready  for business about Monday when a  cordial invitation.is extended to every:  one to call and inspect their stock.  Inspect Local Railway  Equipment*  General  K  Improvements  '.--bly -Follow.  Will  Phoenix had a visit,this week from  three leading officials of the S. F. & N.  ���R. C. Morgan, superintendent; W.  Kelly, master mechanic; and C. Mor-  arity, road mastei. They came in  from Spokane on Wednesday evening  in their private- car attached to the  regular passenger for the purpose of  making a general inspection of the  Great Northern equipment, and were  accompanied by local officials���-J. M.  Doyle, assistant superintendent, and  P. E. Car), master mechanic. Just  what improvements may be expected  as a result of their visit we have not  been able to ascertain, although the  regulai passenger coach appeared particularly clean for once. As they arrived after dark and spent the night in  their private car near the depot, however, they were afforded a grand opportunity of taking in the charming (?) appearance of their terminal headquarters  here. And in making a detailed inspection ot the service and accommodation given patrons of the railway at  Phoenix, they must surely have realized  the great scope for improvements. We  will await developments.      -       ���     ',.  Boundary Mining Notes  Deuble Wedding ot Phoenicians. .  A double wedding took place pn  Thursday evening of last  week at the  Church of Mary Immaculate, Nelson,  when    Rev.  Father Verbeke married  Miss Cassie McDonald of Antigonish,  Nova Scotia, to Frank McDonald of  Phoenix, formerly of  Antigonish,  and  Miss Janet McDonald,   of Antigonish,  to Duncan Mclnnes, of Phoenix.    Af- .  ter the ceremony was over the wedding  party sat down to dinner at the residence 01 Mr.   and  Mrs.  R.   D.   McDonald,  Victoria; street. _ The; happy -  couples arrived in town fronY Nelson on  Saturday, and have taken up residence  on Old Ironsides, avenue- -They..were  given a serenade on the evening of their  arrival.    The popularity of the young  people is attested by the large number  of beautiful   presents  of which   they  have been made recipients.  The B. C. Copper company's smeller treated 13,334 tons of ore this week,  as follows: Mother Lode, 10,482; Oro  Denoro, 2 406;   other properties 445.  J. W. Shaw of Grand Forks has returned from doing assessment work on  the C.P.R. and Victor mineral claims  in McKinley camp; which are owned  by himself and S. Horner. Mr. Horner says that from the showing six  weeks ago, assays were made from the  then three-foot paystreak which gave  $80 in gold. Since this last work was  done on it some six feet of ore have  been encountered clear across the  shaft, and he anticipates that samples  from this, which were shipped to Spo-  kane to be assayed, will run much  higher. On the C.P.R. claim, which  is also a gold proposition, the assays  from an 18-inch seam give 18 ounces  of gold to the ton.  Phoenix Defeats Greenwood.  The local squad of baseball artists  strayed into Greenwood's ballyard on  Sunday afternoon, and made themselves to home in the clover-patch in a  manner that surprised the representatives of the lower city. Strutzel was on  the mound for Phoenix, and served an  approved variety of benders. At the  end ot the eighth inning the score was  12-13 m favor of Phoenix, but the  visitors started a merry-go-round in the  ninth and added another dozen runs to  their score. Greenwood is expected  here for a game on Labor Day.

It  is   not  readily  possible,   of course,   to separate  his  capacity as Liberal leader from that of  prime  minister and   first   citizen   of  Canada, but perhaps it is more easy in  this case than it has been in any other  to listen, to,the statesman and to forget  the partisan.    Should Sir Wilfrid ultimately give his assent to the program  mapped out for him, he will be rendering the  people a distinct service, towards which the bearing of the tour  upon many party politics will have but  a minor relation.   It is very rarely that  a public than  of the  first  eminence  joins to the capacity for the enduring  work of a' statesman, a personality so  sympathetic as to' make intimate and  understanding personal communication  between himself and the masses of the  people as easy as it is desirable.   That  Sir'Wilfrid possesses such a personality  is one of our particular boasts in Canada, and   the gratification   has   never  been confined to those merely who are  attached to the political fortunes of his  party.    Weare so fortunately situated  here  in  Canada that  while we may  differ about'many lines of policy, the  things men separated by party divisions  can agree about are at least as numerous  and at   least   as  important as those  about which they find themselves in  volved in difference. ~ As an exponent  of these articles of agreement, Sir Wilfrid Laurier has hid no rival  in  his  day, and-whatever the future may have  in store for the rival political parties,  it is surely well that as many as possible  of the rising generation of' Canadians  should be brought under the spell of  his influence while they can partake in  that good fortune.  TW Great Northern Depot.  ' The Pioneer has taken occasion be-  'fore to point out to the Great Northern  "Railway company the lack of enterprise in not providing its local depot  with proper,lighting, and now as the  longi' evenings 'approach the station-  yard becomes nothing short of a rabit-  run' for "criminals and a menace to the  city.  If a robbery were committed in one  of the lower town business houses - the  operators would only have  to go a  couple of-hundred feet to  reach   the  Great Northern depot, and once under  1 cover there, even with officers m close  pursuit,-their escape would be almost  "'a'certainty.    In' the recent'hold-up of  a local barber shop' the  men escaped  'by a rear entrance to the Great North?  ^ern yard and were gone.      ''-- -'  '���"���-'��� Aside 'from*;thisV the G: N."station  ,altho\igh1"onlyua'; few feet from one of  the main business streets is outside the  ��� city limits and beyond the scope of  city police.

During the greater part of the year  the Great Northern train arrives aftei  -dark^and in accommodation for. travellers and citizens alike the station is  a disgrace to any railway doing the  business James J.'Hill does in Phoenix.    It  is  but a few months since a  - The next parliament of - Canada will  comprise   221-members,   the-largest  'representation - that Canada has ever  h&dl' 'It may be mentioned that the  Dominion's representation is fixed by  the representation of Quebec, .which is1  the * pivotal ' province.   ��� Quebec   has  sixty-five   members  and   the  number  never increases.   ' Each< of the  other  provinces must have the same proportion of representatives to its population  as the number 65 bears to the population of Quebec.    In this way the representation of the west increases and  the reprentation of the eastern provinces  decreases.    At Confederation the representation of Canada in the Commons  consisted of 181 members.. There was  no member west lof Ontario, and ^no  New Ontario.    In 1875 the representation increased to 206 members.    The  increase was In-Ontario ana four members from  Manitoba.    In   1885  Canada's representation was increased to  211 members; this time Manitoba getting five" members, and Ontario as high  as 92.    In 1895 there were 213 repre-  sentatives in the Dominion House, the  increase being due to the west.   There  was'forHhe first time a decrease in the  representation of the maritime prov-  inces, and as this decrease has been  going  on   slowly,  but   steadily,   ever  since, it has been a great  source  of  anxiety to the people down,by the sea.  Vancouver is excited over a discovery of coal measures under the city  Townsite.  Over 600 tons of ore has been shipped  from the Evening Star, Rossland, this  year. Last week shipments were made  from a -new body of ore that is expected to run $25 to the ton.  Hon; Wm. Templeman, minster of  mines, accompanied by R. AV. Brock,  headof the Dominion Geological Survey department, intends shortly to  make a tour of the mines of the province.  John Clavene, of Vancouver and  associates, will shortly commence operations on an extensive scale in the  develoment of a gypsum deposit located  at Spat sum on the main line of the  C.P.R. near Spence's Bridge.  A car of Hewitt ore was put through  the Kootenay Ore Co's zinc plant here  a few days ago in order to test it. If  satisfactory, it is'possible-that steady  shipments may be made to this point  from the noted Slocan Lake ! property.  The encouraging reports continue to  come from the Bluebell at Kaslo. The  huge reserve of ore blocked out is continually 'being added to and the con  cent rat or is making a good product.  One car shipped recently returned  $600.  The Nakim* Cart* .  The description and picture' of the  Nakimu Caves in the August number  of Canada-West is one of the best bits  of Canadian word-and- camera work  that has come forward this many a day.  It was written and the photographs were  made by James Cooke Mills; These  caves are a series of chambers and passageways in the heart of the SelkirKs,  not far from the Glacier, House. Mr.  Mills tells of the adventures of the explorers who first penetrated their depths  and a most fascinating story- he makes  of it. Text and pictures give a vivid  idea of the vaulted and curious rooms  and galleries and 'carbonate grottoes  underground, the really Alpine grandeur of the scenery in the surrounding  " valley of the caves," and the beauty  of Roger's Pass and the visitors' camp  by Cougar Creek. The article is a  fresh bit of travel��� sketching such as  may well serve to show Canadians how  much we may see at home instead of  going to Switzerland, how superb, our,  own great mountains are, where th the  summer it is always cool.  Bmter't Philosophy.���XXXVIII.  Resolved, that reunions are good  things, because in union there is  strength������-but there is an awful lot of  time wasted at reunions. Too much  gab. The man who stays alone with  himself and does a lot of thinking is  doing something profitable. He'll get  there someday. In good boons there  is the best thought and knowledge of  the greatest minds. Don't you want  to know something? "Knowledge is  power." There is no law against using  your brains. God gave us our brains  to use. The greatest inventions were  made in the quiet of the inventor's  own rooms, not at reunions. Have a  reunion with yourself sometimes.

There is a comfort to be a boy in the  amount of work he can get rid of doing.  It is something astonishing how slow  he can go on aii errand; perhaps, he  couldn't explain to himself why, when  he is sent to the neighbor's for yeast  he stops to stone frogs. He is not  exactly cnH, but lie wants to see if he  can hit 'em. 11 is a curious.fact about  boys that two will be a great deal  slower doing anything than one.  Boys have the power of helping each  othei do nothing. But say what you  will about the general usefulness of  boys, a farm without a boy would soon  come lo grief. He is always in demand  In the first place he is to do all the  errands, go to the store, post-office, and  carry all sorts of messages, lie  would like to have as many legs as a  wl eel has spokes, and rotate in the same  way. This he sometimes tries to do  and people who have seen him "turning  cart wheels" along the side of the road  have supposed he was amusing himself  and biding his time. He was only  ttying to invent a new mode of locomotion, so he could economize his legs  and do his errands with greater dispatch.  Leapfrog is one of the methods of  getting over the ground quickly. He  has a natural genius for combining  pleasure with business.  Starling in Lite  > You  arc soon to  leave and   break  away from all the tender ties of home,  and go out-and seek your, fortune in  the world.    Let us whisper a few words  of counsel.   We suppose you wish to be  rich; most people do.    We don't think  riches desirable.    We should be sorry  to have inherited wealth.    But a. corn-  petenre is very desirable, is  indispensable.    Well,  the way to get it  is  by  forethought to  plan,  industry  to  execute, and prudence to keep the earnings  of your work.     Money is by no means  the best thing in   life.    You are here  in this world to become a good  man,  a wise man, a just man, an affectionate  man, a religious man.    Work for your  manhood as much as for money's sake  as much to get   as  to  keep it.    Keep  clear of vice,  especially intemperance  gambling and   licentiousness.    These  three ruin  thousands of young   men  every year.    Be not gloomy,  sour and  stiff.   ..Cheerfulness,, gayety,. liveliness  and mirthfulness belong to your period  of life.    You will find  little real plea  sure in anything that your conscience  forbids.    As   you   have   opportunity,  cultivate your  mind and  forethought,  prudence and industry  will  help   you  here  as  much   as  in  getting  money.  And now would you prolong  the  sunshine of life forever?    We must say to  you there is no real  happiness in   life  without religion.    It is a restraint from  doing wrong, an encouragement to do  right, and a great comfort at all times  of life.     And finally, remember, though  absent from the sight of dear ones at  home, you will ever live in their hearts;  and their highest earthly wish  will  be  that you  may prove yourself a noble  man.k  Phoealx Railway Timetable.

Merton & Co., to  gether with those reported by the Engineering and Mining Journal for the  United States, permit one to figure out  the world's production of the red metal  in 1907 and preceding years. From  the two authorities mentioned we learn  that the world's production of copper  in 1907 amounted to 723,807 metric  tons, as against 715,523 metric tons in  1906, and 699,514 metric tons in 1905,  Thus 1907 showed "an increase of 11  per cent over 1906,, and of 4.6 per  cent over 1905. .That there was ah  increase at all is somewhat surprising  in view of the decline in trade which  occurred in the last half of 1907.  "However, although the United Slates  and Mexico made/increased outputs,  there were many important producing  countries; including Spain and Portugal, Germany and Chile, which remained about stationary, while, on the  other hand, there were several coun- j  tries which made greatly increased outputs, the most noteworthy among these;  being Australasia, Canada, fapan and;  Russia. The largest proportionate increase was made by Russia, whose output increased 500 per cent, chiefly>be-|  cause of the operations of the newj  companies which have become inter-,  ested in the copper mines of that empire during the last few years. The  increase in the production of Japam  was 25 per cent, while the increase in  the production of Australasia was con:  siderably upward of 10 per cent. The  production of the principal copperproducing countries of the world in 1907  was   as   given   in   the   accompanying  table,  in  metri  '9��5 and 1906  panson:  Australasia  Canada .....  .,  Chile   Guimany   Japan   Mexico.   ..    .

Stanton, the copper author  lty, states that the copper situation is  improving every day, and that inquiries  are in reasing from all over the conntry,  and that buying is on a more libera,;  scale than for a long while. People  who have been out of the market for  more than a year are now being heard  from.  As to prices, he says: "A few days  ago I sold a moderate, amount of lake  copper at 13.55c, but have sold none  since. , Yesterday I was offered 13.60  for a lot, but would not entertain the  proposition, preferring to hold my cop  per for better prices. I have heard  that a sale was affected by other parties of 500,000 pounds for October delivery at 13 55c. spot cash. Person  ally, I should not be surprised to see  copper selling at 14c. before the close  of this month."  PROVINCIAL.  In the Telle wa there are 7 5,000 acres  of coal lands.

When, eczema, ulcers or ringworm  break out on the scalp, generally the  first thing the doctor orders is to have  the hair cut off. Don't do it before  trying Zam-Buk, which can cure without such a sacrifice. Mrs. J. Butler,  of 5 Banuockburn Avenue, Montreal  says:���  .1 ..My ^daughter, Annie, caught.eczema;  It broke out on her face and scalp, and  the disease was quickly transmitted to  Herbert and Edith, and in their cases  not only their heads, but their hands  and faces were.covered���with,sores..and  scaly places. :  I tried various blood-purifying rem  edies in vain and then consileda  doctor. He applied all kinds of lotions, but ,the sores remained the same.  He next ordered that the hair be all  shaven off from the girls' heads in  order to get down to the disease on  the scalp. They each had nice long  hair, and I thought it such a pity to  cut it all off. I refused.. lie thereupon withdrew his services altogether.  After that I bought first one thing  and then another, but it was all no  good until we got Zam-Buk. That  proved equal to the case and in a few  weeks it cleared away every trace of  skin disease from each child. With it  in use there was no need to cut off the  girls' hair, or take any other extreme  measure, it just went to work and  healed the sores in fine shape."  Zam-Buk cures blood poisoning, cuts,  bruises, old wounds, running sores,  ulcers, boils, eruptions, scalp sores, eczema, itch, barber's rash, burns, scalds,  and all skin injuries and diseases.

Mellon, of  Fernie, Marries Ml,, Rote  Bojovltch, Formerly ol Phoenix.  On the heels of the Fernie disaster,  in which he lost property valued at  $40,000, William Henry Melton of the  stricken city, on Thuisday of last week  took unto himself a wife in Spokane-  Although he lost a fortune, Mr. Melton  says that he feels more than compensated by the turn of the blind goddess'  wheel which tossed a bride his way.  "Well, I won't put it in exactly that  fashion," said Mr.1 Melton, '.'maybe I  was thrown in her, way. Anyway, we  met, quite by chance, and it has been  the salvation of me at a time, of sore'  distress, when I was greatly in need of  help. I felt pretty glum and down in  the mouth when the-fire swept away in  a moment what-I had labored years to  acquire, but when I met her���well, the  sun shone once more. I tell you, she  was a saving grace to me, though her  name was Rose." Mr. Melton was in  the lumber business in Fernie. He  was also interested iri a leading hotel.  The'bride is "Mtss Rose Bogovitcfi,  who was a resident of Phoenix a year  ago. They were married by the Rev.  H. I. Rasmus at the,Grand hotel, Spokane.  Mr. Melton explained that the fire  had not left him entirely destitute.  VWe'll have, enough to begin housekeeping on, anyway,, when we return  from our honeymoon," he laughingly  explained. "I wasn't like the young  man who wasn't wise enough to carry  a decent amount of insurance. TnieJ  I didn't carry enough, but it will help  some now. The trouble is that my  loss is now being adjusted when I need  ready money." !  It was learned that Mr. Melton, who  was. a widower, met the girl of his  choice a few days after the fire. He  had gone to Spokane to have his loss  adjusted. . Friends introduced him to  the young-woman, who shyly gave her  age at 22, and it proyed to be a case  love at first sight. TJhe bride is a pronounced brunette and decidedly good-  looking. ���  "We intend to return toFernie and  grow up with the town," was the way  he expressed his faith in the future of  his home city.

Graham, Reeves, Gardner and  McCracken as lieutenants     The Pioneer was also taken as an authority on  how to land big game.    Early morning  refreshments were taken   a  few   miles  below Bannock City, after  which   the  river in the vicinity was sampled.    Adjournment was then made to Bannock  City for a few hours, but the pay streak  being smaller, the party   back-tracked  to the former camping ground and took  up the old lead with crowning success.  'The-edttor-was-the ftrsno-svrikc-f'old  qtiartz, but in trying to land a trout of  immense proportions the fishing pole  received   a   double  fracture  and  the  tackle disappeared.    Hardly   had we  recovered from the catastrophe   when  the real speckled beauty of the river���  weighing 6 lbs.  15^ ozs. to a nicety  ���was  landed.    As  the   entire   party  were digging in the same stupe, there  was no less than six claimants" to  the  ownership, but by our unbiased opinion  the laurels   of the  day   go  to   Chief  Thompson.    The trout was exhibited  to every native along the North   Fork  route and by the general concensus of  opinion the captain has also the credit  for the biggest trout ever  taken   from  the  river.     The   fishermen   returned  home happy.
