The  follows  The directors have much satisfaction  in presenting to the shareholders the  accompanying balance sheet and profit  and loss statement, showing net earnings exceeding 12^ per cent. Considering the low rates of interest which  have prevailed and the necessity of  keeping a good cash leserve, they consider the results very satisfactory.  Out ofthebalance of profit as shown,  provision has been made for two semiannual dividends at the rate of 8 per  cent, per annum, one paid 2nd July  last and the other payable 2nd January next.  One hundred thousand dollars has  been carried to reserve fund, making  that amount up to $1,600,000 being  64 per cent-on-rihc capital, leaving a  balance of $24,566.18 to be carried  foi ward.  Branches has been established during the year at Actoiivale, Hemming-  ford, I.ennoxville and Waterville, in  the province of Quebec, and at Vancouver and Midway, in British Columbia.. Sub-agencies have also been  opened at Valcouit, Bdloeil, Iberville,  Clarenceville, Lacolle, Scotstown,  Howick and Stanstead, in this province. They are also about to open a  branch on Wellington street, in this  city, in order to accommodate the  growing business in that section. Previous reports have foreshadowed the  opening at Vancouver, and although  the branch has only been opened for a  few months a very satisfactory business  is being done. The Midway office is  at a point where large expenditure is  being made by the construction of two  railways and is a central point in that  section.  Deposits have increased during the  year exactly $2,000,000, being largely  in exefss of any previous year, showing the increasing growth and prosperity of the countiy, which is very  gratifying.  In view of the increasing business of  the bank, the direcors have decided  to issue the balance of the $1,000,000  capital authorized at the special meeting ol" shareholders in Kebiuaiy, 1903,  viz.: $500,000, the. calls being payable 10 per cent monthly with the premium commencing on second day of  January next, the issue being at 60  premium.  As there appears to be a pretty general desire by investors for more frequent division of profits, your directors have decided to meet this  demand, and in future dividends will  be paid quarterly, viz.: Januaiy, April,  July and October.  The inspections of the various offices  have been made as usual.  In conclusion the directors have  much pleasure in testifying to the zeal  and fidelity of the general manager,  inspectors, managers and other officers  of the bank.  The whole respectfully submitted.  William Kakwell,  President.  meeting and . covered very fully the points  mentioned in the report, after which he  moved its adoption, seconded by vice-  president Wood.  The general manager followed and  reviewed the financial statement which  was presented, and spoke of the general prosperity which Canada had en:  joyed during the past year.  The meeting was also addressed by  Judge Alfred, .Hon. Hr. Hackett, A.  N. Thompson and other shareholders  of the bank, all of whom expressed  themselves as being highly pleased  with the: report that was submitted and  with the bank's position.  Votes of thanks were passed to the  presidetit'and directors for their atten  tion to the affairs of the bank; also to  the general manager and staff for the  efficient manner in which they had  performed their duties during the year.  ...

Sunday morning Alan W. Birnie,  brother of Alderman L.Y. Birnie, died  at the Phoenix hospital from typhoid  fever, an operation for perforation of  the bowels having been performed on  Saturday in the hope of saving his life.  Mr. Birnie was a young man of but 20  years, having arrived in Phoenix from  Vernon but two or three months ago.  His two brothets, Leslie Y. Birnie and  Ed Birnie, and his sister, Mr. Forbes  Kirby, of Grand Forks, were here at  the time of his death. Monday Ed  Birnie and Mrs. Kd'rby accompanied  the lemains to Vernon, where the  parents live, the funeral taking place  thereon Wednesday. Deceased had  been ill but about ten days and was  of strong physique. While everything  known to medical science was done  for him, the ravages of the disease  were too much A large number of  friends of the family showed their sincere sympathy by escorting the remains to the C.P.R. station.  A man giving his name as Alex Mc-  Dougald, who had been in Grand  Forks about a week, forged Dr. Kingston's name to a Royal _ Bank cheque  for $40, made payable to himself. The  man, after cashing the cheque, was arrested, and given six months hard.  George Taylor, of Grand Forks, has  been awarded a contract to cut two  million feet of saw logs for the Kettle  River Lumber Co. They will probably be cut from timber limits up the  North Fork.  $10,000 Worlh of Butter for Phoenix.

It' is good that mankind in general^  at this  season,   should   lay   aside its  many cares and, even for a  brief season,  exhibit  the  holiday spirit."  We  are, all of us,  too apt to be so immersed  in our everyday business matters that we think .too little of these  ��� things and  pay too slight attention to  them. ��� While'-all  may  not  think as  they should of the  significance of the  occasion   recurring' on   the  25th  of  ' every  December,  there are few  but  :*that can take part in making the anniversary  more  pleasant  for  some ac-  ' quaihtance or friend.  A philosopher has said that there is  more joy , in giving than in receiving  gifts, and he .was certainly a student of  human nature at its best. For instance, how can one secure more satisfaction than in witnessing the pleasure of the little ones at Christinas time,  when they receive their toys and remembrances of every kind, be they  ever so humble. It is a' satisfaction  not to be -obtained in any other; way  on this earth, and those who have  given it the best test are best aware of  , it. And then, being, all of us, children of a larger growth, the same  thing will work with our elder friends;  ,/i'hey appreciate being remembered,  not perhaps for the intrinsic value of  the remembrances, but for the fact  that they are not forgotten.  Particularly in the west, possibly, do  we appreciate the holiday time, though  we may not show it at all seasons when,  they ' come round. This year let us  make an exception, if we can.,  If we know of someone who is bedridden or who has been ��� through the  valley of tears, or who has seemingly  had more than his or her share of  trouble, let us make it our special care  to show that peace on earth and good  will do prevail to a large extent, in  the Boundary as elsewhere. Such  actions will bring their own reward in  the satisfaction that we have made the  effort to mak<; others happier at this  time of year. '  A Beneficial Evolution.  Thoughtful men, for' the last few  years, have been noting the evolution  that has been taking placer in eastern  financial  circles   rcgaiding-uiiiiinj*, in  vestments. Whereas, ten years ago il  was not easy to find a prominent man  who had any connection with mining  interests, now they are numbered by  the, thousands, and their number is  steadily increasing. < They have discovered that mining is no more hazardous than any other industry if carried on with proper safeguards. The  immediate result has been profitable  operations in western fields, with increased capital ready to take hold.  One of the most successful mining  men in Montana, who has recently  returned, from,an;extended visit to the  east, where he has extensive connections, notes, the change of sentiment  regarding the mining industry in gen-  eial and Montana in particular, says  the Chicago Mining World. He says  in this connection:  "There  are  now more responsible  business and financial .men   identified  with the mining industries ot the country than at any other time in the  history of the development of the mineral  "resources of the great west.  The number of mining stoeks on which quotations are now made in  New York and  Boston   are  over 300, compared wilh  about '80   three years ago, and to this  collection may be added   hundreds of  miscellaneous mining stocks which aie  notquoted publicly,   but   for which a  market   exists.    The  mining industiy  in the past did  not  always  enjoy the  best of reputations, and there are many  who have said they would   'have none  of it,' because of the  results  of misjudged 'flyers.'    The  industry is now  surrounding itself with factors that are  making it a well-recognized  branch of  the   industrial   development. of    the  country.    This evolution, so to speak,  from 'wildcatting' to respectful consideration has not been the result of any  particular   reform   instituted   by   any  man or group of  men,   but - is largely  due; to the calmer discrimination which  has been exercised, from   time to nine  by.those inclined to become interested  in mining property."  These changed conditions are felt  and appreciated in Montana and other  western mining states. No longer can  a smooth talker, armed with elaborately printed stock certificate^ and nothing else, go east and sell sto;k. And  such attempts are no longei considered. The man or men with good properties, upon which a report lrom a  recognized mining engineer can be  made, has no trouble at the . present  time in getting all the capital necessary in the east, to develop the properties.  rate plus the local rate back, even  though a haul of a thousand miles or  thereabouts is saved by the railway  company. They are beautifully silent  about a little matter of that kind.  This is what interior shippers ' are up  against all the time, and .there is no  redress because it has become an unwritten law with all the railways.  Water competition is alleged, to be the  cause of this discrimination in.favor of  coast points���and of course there is  no water competition for the interior.  Shippers here must take their medicine  and look pleasant, as they have been  doing for lo, these many years.  Mighty little sympathy will be  wasted on the C.P.R; on account of  this.boycott, but it will doubtless end  where such things usually terminate,  in victory for the railway company.  The coast meichants may have a jjood  cause, but they would get more support if they assisted the interior dealers to secure a reduction on the existing rates. Tlie* present rates to the  interior lrom. the east or from the  coast are an ' outrage. Perhaps, like  the eel who was skinned so often that  he liked it, we may get so that we like  it in time, but the time is not very  close as yet.  Kootenay Engineering WorRs  NESON, B.

Flour that gives half nourishment and  double work to digest is not good flour.  Cheap and inferior flour gives the'  digestive organs double work and  half pay���inferior flours contain indigestible waste���  ���this waste must first be overcome  by nature,���that means extra digestive work.  Indigestibles destroy the nutriment  of flour, therefore poor flour gives  more work and less nutriment to the  system.

Ingram,  formerly chief of police at_ Rossland,  and also at Calgary and Winnipeg,  and injuring several people besides.  Ingram was in charge of the powder,  and his deflth removed the only possible source of inloimation as tothe  cause of the explosion. His body was  recovered from the debris badly mangled. Lockhart, assistant diamond  drill operator, who was at work under  the Centre Star offices, was badly cut  about the.head and lees, but will recover, Several members of the office  staff and men in the compressor building were hurt by flying glass or by  being thrown violently against the machinery. Buildings in the immediate  vicinity were twisted out of shape and  the windows all broken.  The big War Eagle boarding house  was badly damaged, some of the inmates being slightly injured. In the  city of Rossland the shock of the ex  plosion caused much consternation and  did a large amount of damage. Near-]  ly all the plate glass windows on .Columbia avenue were smashed, many  people receiving cuts from the fragments. The merchants had their  Christmas goods displayed, much destruction being wrought among these.  The amount of glass destroyed is enormous, and heavy importations for repairs will be necessary. The citizens  feel thankful, nevertheless, that the  loss of life and property was not greater. The Centre Star, War Eagle and  LeRoi mines were shut down for a few  days because of the injury to the  steam and air pipes and compressor  machinery and the practical wreck of  the building containing them. 'I'he  damage can not be exactly appraised,  but it.is thought it will reach probably  $50,000.  John S. Ingram leaves a widow and  five children.  HER PHYSICIANS DESPAIRED.  ADVISED CHANGE OF CLIMATE.  Pe-ru-na, Used as a Last Resort, Cured Her oi  a Severo Attack of Catarrh of the Lungs,  a  * * .  The   Sensational    Cure   of    Mrs.  Caldwell Is tlie Talk of Her  Acquaintances.  I  "Kurtz's    Own"  I  I  Kurtz's Pioneers"  I  I "Spanish Blossoms" I  Union Made Cigars  Mining is to be carried on under  Moyie lake.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 5,990 tons, or 315,834 tons for  the year to date.  Eight feet solid of high grade ore  has been struck on the North Star,  which was recently reported played  out.  The   Carbonado   colliery   near  the  I Morrissey mines will in all probability  be temporarily closed down at the end  of this month.  Silver is s'ill over 65c; lead has  dropped slightly to ^"r 7:65:3d in London, and copper has reached the top  price of i8^>c.  Dominion Copper is in good demand. This stock, which was selling  at 37 two weeks ago, has now advanced on the curb In New York to 55  asked and 53 kid.  The Frank smelting plant for the  treatment of zinc-bearing ores has a  capacity of 120 tons per day. The  company has a coal mine in its own  right rlongside, from which it can  deliver coal at   60  cents per ton.  The Kaslo magnetic zinc separator  has succeeded in getting a concentrate  of 50 per cent, zinc, while the iron  saved is sufficient to pay for the treatment of the ore as a flux by the  smelters.  Mrs. Ida Caldwell, 500 Pearl street,  Sioux City, la., Vice-President Order of  Washington, writes:  "I suffered with catarrh of the respiratory organs off and on. for the last  three years until I thought it was  chronic. My chest and lungs wero irritated aud I had to use the greatest  care not to expose myself to chilly air  or dampness as it increased my troubles.  "My physician advised me to try a  change of climate, but I was unable io  leave my family. Reeding of the won-  derful cures performed by Peruna, 1  bought a bottle.  "It was with the greatest satisfaction  that I found it the one medicine among  them alt which cured me.

Catarrh would not be such a curse  In this country If the people thoroughly  understand Its nature. It must be  treated at once to prevent it from making Inroads upon vital organs.  If you suffer from catarrh, buy Peruna to-day, for a day gained on the  enemy, catarrh,  means   a  recovery.  We have on file many thousand testimonials like the one Riven here.
