In other  words, no matter how long it takes to  make connections, all mail must be  brought here by the Great Northern  railway, thus delaying much mail matter unnecessarily.  minion. The mica industry employes  550-persons. The wages paid last jear  amounted to $120,000. Mica has  been found in the Similkameen, but  whether it exists in commercial values  is not known.

Tins 'means more miners employed,  more smelterroen, more_ railway   employees and more families generally in  die district.     And a most lavorable  nature, of the' situation'is"that every.  4ne.of the three smelling  works are  IHtely to be' enlarged in tbe immediate  future.    Boundary is still an  inviting  jfeld/or capital; there are great metal-  1 fferous resources yet untouched here,  tuld, the distribution of regular profits,  which is'lhought jnot to be far distant,  will give it a Manding in the financial  atnd investment world that can notfail  '%a redound to its ultimate benefit.  stupidity, commend us to the post-  office official, whether resident at Ottawa, Vancouver or elsewhere, that  proposed such a arrangement. He  certainly has a great head, but what it  iy filled with is another story. ' Such  an arrangement would give us a mail  service infinitely worse than that now  in use, for the simple reason that the  Great Northern must receive the  greater portion of such mail from the  C.P.R. somewhere, arid would have to  rely on connections with the C. P. R.  When they faded, we would get-no B,  C. mail. When on time, we-would  receive mail ,frorn two to, five hours  iater than at present.. 'Either,way- it  would be a most unsatisfactory arrangement to Uiis community.  If thtre is any reason why Phoenix  should not, be given mail service on  both railways, ju.it. as Nelson,, Ross-  land and Grand Forks aie, it has not  been'aiiiiounced^a's yet. That is what  we want, and ,what we expect to get]  ultimately, it would /e.-m that the  officials of tKe "department must ���' have  a grudge against this place by the way  they are treating us.' If not, why not  treat us the way other towns with the  same railway'faciliiiesare treated ?  You may treat ypuriaffairs as a .series  '  of care's, :  You may, live on 'a scrap or a oust;  But when the day's done, put it out of  '.v   your head;'  Don't take your ^roubles to bed.

Iii-five \ears more than 2,500,000 tons of ore have been mined aud  smelted here, with a valuation of over $12,500,000. And the industry is  only in its infancy.  The greatest mines of the Boundary are at Phoenix���not one or five  utiles distant, but in front of, behind and beneath the Pioneer office. Consequently, from our vantage point we believe the Pioueer can give you the  best, latest and most reliable news of the mines and smelters ofthe Boundary.

James   Marshall comes from sturdj  Scotch parentage, having been born a;  Dalkeith,  Scotland, in   1864.    Whei  but eiu'"een yenes of. age he arrived at  Victoria, H C��� in 18K2, wln-re lie madt  ���hi? home' ft r eight.years.".   Ai that tinu  Vicioiia   was   practically   the'   "wholi  tiling" in ibis province.     Tlie  init'ii ��  was hardly heard of  t>r known   rx'cepi  where   ihe    C. 1'. K.    was    luiildinu  thiough,     and    as    for     Kootenay   ot,  Boundary,   they   were   scaicely   evei  named.     However, the   high pi ice ol  silver  in. the  early niiiei.ie-s, and   ihe  rich silver-lead discoveries   in the Slocan, st.on   brought men from eve*ry di  rection, and the Slocan   had   a   boom  that will be   long   remembered.    Mr.  Marshall was among   ihe early ones in  the Slocan; arriving at Sandon in 1890,  when ore was hauled 30 or 40 milts to  Kasio, where it was placed 611 steameis  and taken to Bonne:'s Ferry in Idaho.  Mr. Marshall made some mineral locations in   the  Slocan, but made no big  money. -  When silver went down in 18935  the Slogan alsj w;nitd, and in 1895  Mr. Marshall came 11110 the* Bi.undaiy,  being also one 01" the early ones, com-  paiativclv, to reach this section. lit  was fortunate enough 10 locate the  B oner claim, aojoining the Old lron-  silcs, which he and his partner, Thos.  Roderick, afterwards sold to the Miner-  Graves syndicate, putting the vendors  on easy street. This was in* 1900.  Four years later the same gentlemen  sold the Monte group of three claims,  f-dir��ctiy north of camp,��to-<he Granby  Co., and again fortune smiled on them.  Mr. Marshall is also interested in .1  number of other good properties in the  Boundary, among them being the  Marshall group, adjoining the Brook  lyn group, and the Louie F. on the  West Fork of Kettle liver.  When Phoenix was incorporated as  a city in 1900, Mr. Marshall was  chosen as one of the first councilmen,  and ever since that he has been chosen  by:the electors to succeed himself in  that position, the present being his  seventh term. He has, as an alderman, devoted much time to the city's  interests. 7  'But Mr. Marshall showed his greatest faith in the camp where* he made  something1 by reinvesting his funds  here. In conjunction with G. W.  .Rumberger, he built the new Hot:-!.  Brooklyn this year, which was teceii'.lj  thrown;open.7 to the public. Tht-  structure cost'abbut $20,000 complete,  being a modern thret-story building,  erected on the site of the old Brooklyn  hotel, which was burned to the ground  February 14th last. It is undoubtedly.  one ofthe best hotels in the Boundary,  well appointed throughout, and is enjoying a patronage which Mr. Marshall  states is very satisfactory, although,  opened but three weeks.  'Ihe Nelson smelter will not close,  as anticipated.  The St. Eugene concentiator started  running with a full force on December  ��t.  About j so tons of ore are being  laker daily from the Sullivan mine in  East Kootenay.  The fourth copper furnace ut the  Trail smelter was blown in last week.  One lead stack is in blast.  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were 5,57b tons, making 298,003 ton*  for the calendar year to date.  The directors of the Cariboo Consolidated, Limited, have convened an  extraordinary general meeting of ths  company for the purpose of submitting  recolutions in favor of increasing the  capita) of the company to $220,000 by  the creation of 200,000 preference  shares of as each.  W. F. Robertson, provincial minsral-  ogist, has issued a comprehensive report dealing/with the Windy Arm  mining locations in the Atlin district.  From the tenor of the report it may be  judged ttm the Windy Arm country  will before, long figure in the mineral  production of British Columbia.  , When Sickness Comes to the  Little Ones  it Is tho Mothe7~Who Chiefly  .7       Suffers. *  Shosnflors even more than too child  Who happens to bo flck.

Kach year finds somo change In his  proscriptions and In tho drugs ho relies  upon.  , A Multitude of Mother*  Have discovered that Peruna Is the  stand-by, and that In all the allmonts  of Rpring and summer to which the  children aro subjected, Peruna Is the  remedy that will most quickly rolievo.  Whothor It Is spring rover or slonuich  derangement, whether It is indigestion  or bowel diseaso, a catarrhal congestion  of tho mucous surfaces is tho cause.  : Peruu a quickly relieves this condition  of tho mucous mombrauos. Its operation Is prompt, thochildren do not dislike to take the modtqlne, it has no deleterious effects in any part of the body.  It simple removes the cause of tho  disagreeable symptoms and restores the  health.  Peruna Is not a physic, Peruna is not  a nervine nor a narcotic. Peruna does  not produce any drug habit, however  long it may be taken. Peruna Is not a  stimulant. ...  Peruna Is a specific, remedy for all  catarrhal ailments of winter and stun"  mor, acute or chronic.  The mothers all over the United States  are the best friends that Peruna has.  Tho Mothers Hold Pe-ru-na in High  7  .Esteem,  Not only because it has cured them of  their various ailments, but because it  always rescues  tho children from the  throes and grasp of catarrhal diseases.  We have in our files bushels of testimonials from mothers -whose children  have been cured by Peruna. However,  the large majority of mothers who nso  Peruna, we never hear from.  But we do hear 'from a great number  of mothers who aro so overjoyed at  somo special good they have received  from Peruna that they cannot restrain  their enthusiasm.' They are anxious to  share thaae benefits with other mothers.  The Benefit Which-the Children of  the United States Have Received  From-Pe-ru-na Can Never Be  Put IntocWords.  The chronic, ailments It has prevented,  the Buffering it has mitigated, will  never be fully rocorded.  But at least this m��ch can bo said that  the coming generation owes a great  debt to Peruna, .for it .is' in . the tender  years of youth that slight ailments are  liable to develop into lasting disease,  thus blasting the whole career of the  individual.  The mothers who are bringingup their  children to-day, to believe in Peruna  are doing a great work for humanity.  These children brought up to believe  in Peruna from' the start, will, when  they become heads of families themselves, use Peruna with .unquestioning  faith. ��� ': ���K;  Pe-ru-na Protects the Entire    ���  Household. -  As soon as the value of Peruna is  appreciated by every household, both as  a preventive and cure, te*s of thousands  of lives will be savod^ and hundreds of  thousands of chronic, lingering cases of  catarrh will be prevented. "   -    .  Mrs. Thresa Booke, 858 K. Ashland Ave., Chicago, El.,  of the Maccabees, writes:   . -   ,, .   .  "la oar home Peruna Is tho only medicine we liave. Grandmother, mother,  father and child, all have used Peruna. J t Is our great remedy for catarrh of  the stomach and head, colds, and female complaints of which it has cured mo.  "Wo find it of great value when my husband becomes worn out or catches  cold.   A couple of doses cure blm. ,  "It ihe baby baa colic or any stomach disorder*, a done or two cure* her.  "I consider Peruna finer than any doctor1* medicine that I have ever  Med. and i know that as long ma we bare It In tbe bouse, we will all be  able to keep In good health.'7���"r'"MM DMl"m  -Thresa Rooke.  1.��...������...���.......��.  \t.........  Ho Doctor Required.   '  Mr. Edward Otto, 927 De Soto street,  St. Paul, Minn., writes:  "I cannot say enough for Peruna. It  has done great work in my family, especially for my. oldest boy. We had  doctored with three or four different  doctors and tbey didnot seem to do him  any good. '  "We gave up hopes of cure, and 10 did  they, but we pulled him through on  Peruna.-  "We bad several doctor* and tbey  said they could do no more tor blm so  we tried Peruna as. a last resort, and  that did tbe work. ��� Since then we keep  It In tbe.house all the time, and no  doctor Is required."'���EdwardOtto.  Pe-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.  One reason why Peruna has found permanent use in so many homes is that it  contains no narcotic of any kind. Peruna la perfectly harmless. It can be  used any length of time without acquiring a drug habit. Peruna does not produce temporary resfalta. It is permanent  in its effect. !-.  It has no bad effect upon the system,  and gradually eliminates catarrh by removing the cause of. catarrh.  There are a multitude of homes where  Peruna has been used off and on for  twen'ty years.  Such a .thing could not be possible if  Perun* "contained any druga of a nar-  ootio nature.  Mr. G. H. Parmer, New Martinsville,  W. Va., write* 1  "Oar little son, Harry, la well and  healthy now and we think if we do as  you directed ua, he will keep his health  and grow strong.  '���We know.that ovr little son'* lite  was saved by your wonderful medicine,  Peruna, and we shall always praise  Peruna and use It Im our family when  needed.  ��� - "Should we have any more catarrhal  trouble in our family, we Bhall always  write to - you for treatment!"���G. H.  Parmer.  -      1      C. V   P. Ileidslhe List.  . In the month of October the Canadian Pacific Railway company showed  greater, earnings than any other railroad in America. Its increase in earn  inys for that month was $978,000,  while the New York Central, which  came second, showed an increase of  $961,558. J. J. Hill's roads took  third and fourth places, and the "Soo"  a C.I'.R: adjunct was sixth. The.G.  T. R. was seventh and the C. N. R.  tenth.
