O. O. F. hall in  Phoenix Monday evening.  Thirty-eight lodgemen, accompanied by wives, families and sweethearts, arrived early in the evening  on a special train from Grand Forks,  and Greenwood lodge also had a  number of members present.  To'Mr. P. VV. Dempster, the  grand master of the order in British  Columbia, fell the pleasing duty of  declaring this costly and imposing  edifice, erected one year ago at a  cost of $10,000, dedicated to Odd-  fellowship.  Short and appropriate addresses  on the work of the order were given  by Grand Master Dempster and  Deputy    Grand     Master     Barnes,  Christmas   approaches.

Songs,   recitations   and    musical  selections   were   rendered    by    the  membership and   local   talent.     An  outstanding, feature on the program  was the dancing of Mjessrs, Matheson   arid   Munro   to   the  piping   of  President 7Smith.    The   singing   of  an original song by the composers,  Messrs.   Egeniand   Feever,   elicteel  many favorable comments.  ' .Approximately $50 was raised.

Under international law provision is  made for tbe free transmission of  parcels for prisoners of war, but this  privilege does not extend to parcels  for troops engaged in active service,  nor is it within the power of the  department to so extend it.  The rate of postage required on  parcels addressed to the troops depends upon... the location . of the  addressee. If.the addresse is in  England, the .rate-on parcels for  England applies, which is 12 cents  per pound; while., it .he is in" France,  the parcels are subject to the rates  applicable to' parcels for France,  which are as follows:  One lb., 32 c.; 2 lbs., 40c; 3 lbs.,  48c.; 4 lbs., 64c; 5 lbs., 72c; 6  lbs., 80c; 7 lbs., SSc.; 8 lbs.,SI.02;  9 lbs., $1.10; 10 lbs., $1.18; 11 lbs.,  $1.26.  These are exactly the same  charges which existed for years between Canada, England and France  before tbe war, and are the result  of an agreement or convention made  between these countries and Canada,  and as these countries have not  agreed to lower their rates between  England and France, Canada has to  pay to them the same rales as before the war and   must   chary :   ihe  does not in any way affect the   rate (bottle o' Highland dew.  of postagfe   which   depends   entirely  anuary. .,. . .;; .7  JFebtuacy,, .-i. ...

'"'"''���:���''  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array ef  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a,few localities there are more than surface indications  of the> presence of coal.

'���      ���"  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable,. to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction"from the point of  view of the investor, isjhe sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen ene of r_��  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these day*  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district whare is  situated'the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, te-  vgether with those ofthe British Columbia Copper corrfpany. In the former camp, a��d  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting.the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  ^beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of ��*�����  statement,,let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province. .  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to some   of  its   spendidly equipped-orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout. the Botin-  dary makes this section-of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been'  spent on the construction of government roads. -  ..."
