The annual general meeting of Dominion Copper Co., Ltd., to have been  held at the company's office in Phoenix last Monday, January 27th, was  adjourned till Wednesday, on account  of the illness of the solicitor, John D.  Spence.  On Wednesday the meeting was  held at Mr. Spence's office, Greenwood  and the fellowing directors elected for  the ensuing year: Warner Miller,  Leepold Herrmann, H. H. Melville,  A. M. Wickwire, John M. Shaw,  Samuel Newhouse, C.J. Cull. The  board stands practically as last year,  with the exception of Mr. Cull, who is  understood to represent English stockholders' in the company.  At the annual meeting the reports  of the officers and the financial statement of the company for the year  ending July 31, 1907, which have already been made public, . were ap  proved. The meeting was held here  to comply with. the laws, the details  having been arranged at the New York  office of the company. Nothing was  said or stated regarding the resumption ol operations by the company.  The officers of the company will  likely be the same as last year, namely,  President, Warner Miller; vice-president, H. H. Melville; secretary-treasurer, Leopold Harnman; managing  director, Samuel Newhouse; consulting  engineer, Maurice M. Johnson.  Dispatches from the east indicate  that Warner Miller is very ill at his  home at Herkimer, New York, and  his friends do not expect him to pull  through. This week an assignment  was made for the benefit of his  creditors, the senator having been  hard hit in the recent financial panic.  The assignment will not affect the  Dominion Copper Co. in any way, it  is understood.  MmM^mmgaA^.  TyiwryrTrrYV;v^^  DIED IN THE KNOB HILL HOTEL.  Coroner's Jury Slid Johnson   Had   Alcoholic  Poisoning  Last Saturday Andrew Johnson died  in a room in the Knob Hill hotel,  having been carried in from the street  where he had fallen down. Johnson  had previously been employed in  Phoenix, but had been away for some  time, and since his return had not  been at work.  Tuesday an inquest was held on the  deadman's remains by A. S. Black, the  district coroner, the following jury  having been empanelled by Constable  Docksteader: David Oxley, foreman,  Thomas Connolly, J. C. Witherspoon,  Chris. Martin, Chas. E. King and  George McNie. Witnesses called were  Gus. B. Larson, W. H. Dickson, M.  D., Ben Sacfstrom, J. D. MacLean,  M. D., and Hans Becker. The physicians had made a post mortem examination, and testified that in their  opinion, death had resulted from acute  alcoholic poisoning. The jury found  in accordance with the testimony.  Wednesday afternoon the funeral  was held, interment taking place in  the Phoenix city cemetery. Johnson  was a widower, with a sister in Seattle  and two children living in Sweden.  PHOENIX .HOCKEVISTS AHEAD.  Both  Clubs  Continue  to Pile Up Pavorable  Scores.  The hockey enthusiasts of Phoenix  seem to have ihe knack of piling up  favorable scores, whether it is the  regular team or the Juniors that do the  playing. :    -'  Last Saturday a game was played  between the Juniors of Grand Forks  and those of Phoenix. The game  took place in the morning on the  open rink on Old'Ironsides avenue,  the game being full of ginger, with a  score of 2-1 in favor of Phoenix. The  line-up was as follows:  GRAND FORKS   POSITION PHOENIX  F. Harrigan.. .Centre..H. Townsend  D. Jacobs... ..Rover....W. McKelvey  S. Simons.   .. .L. Wing.A. Swanson  Geo. Lund.... R. Wjng. F.  Wilkinson  J. Crosby.... .Cover,...A. Isaacson  Cecil Temple..Pointi...E. Pierce  H. Sloane .,. .Goal... W. Glasgow  Refreshments were served by Mrs,  O. B. Smith to the players after the  game.  Monday the regular Phoenix team  went to Greenwood, where they played  that evening with seven picked players  from that town. They came back victorious, the score being 5-0.  Wednesday evening another game  was played on the Phoenix rink in the  series now being contested in by the  Grand Forks and Phoenix clubs. The  result was a score of 13-2 in favor.of  Phoenix^ This makes three games  now played in this series of six���  Grand Forks to come to Phoenix again  and Phoenix to go to Grand Forks for  two more games. Phoenix won two  of the three games played thus far, and  one game was a tie.  CONSOLIDATION  ISINTHEAIR  This Time Granby Co.  Mentioned.  J. P. Graves Says Nothing To  It As Yet.  Boundary Mining Notes  Boundary Side Lights  DeVoln ol to Hazelton.  On Thursday Louis L. DeVoin, resident of Phoenix for the past six or seven  years, left on a trip the destination  of which is Hazelton and the mineral  districts in the northern pari of the  province tapped by the Grand Trunk  Pacific railway. Mr. DeVoin went to  Walla Walla, Wash., first for a week's  visit with his family, and will then proceed to Seattle, Vancouver, Port Ess-  ington, Kitimaat, and travel overland  some 70 miles by dog team to Hazelton. It is understood that Mr. DeVoin  who will represent a syndicate of  financiers, will devote his time to looking after and attending to development  on promising mineral claims, the country being known to be very rich in this  respect. Tuesday Mr. DeVoin resigned  his position as shiftbess at the Granby  mines, a position that he has filled  with much satisfaction to his employers.  Before Mr. DeVoin left he was presented with a solid gold watch and  chain, suitably engraved, as token of  appreciation from his associates and  friends at the Granby mines and in  the city of Phoenix.  Why Suiter  from Rheumatism,  Do you know that rheumatic pains  can be relieved? If you doubt this  just try one application of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It will make rest  and sleep possible, and that certainly  means a great deal to any one afflicted  with rheumatism. For sale by all  druggists.  The ice making season is now on in  the Boundary, and there is not likely  to be a shortage in the crop this year.  About 200 men have been tie  making in the Boundary this winter,  the price in the woods being from 1 o  to 12 cents each,  A Sunday school convention will be  held at Grand Forks next Tuesday,  when Stuart Muirhead, general sec  retary, will make an address.  Everett Boyd, editor of the Grand  Forks Gazette for, theJast two or three  months, has resigned* and expects to  leave for the coast next week.  John Hutchinson, aged 46 years,  died in the Grand Forks hospital last  week Friday, after three weeks' illness  brought on by appendicitis. He had  resided there six years.  Last week Friday Fred, the eight  year old son of F. W. Elmore, was  drowned while skating on Kettle river,  near Grand Forks. An hour was unsuccessfully spent in attempts at resuscitation.  C. J. McArthur has 47 men working  in the neighborhood of Greenwood,  getting out ties, poles and cord wood.  He is delivering 500 ties daily to the  C. P. R., and shipping poles to Spokane for the Oregon pole company.���  Ledge.  Greenwood's financial statement for  1907 shows that the city has a bonded  indebtedness of $84,000, with a sinking fund of over $10,000, the city  having taken in $42,000 in that year.  The city owns its own water system,  which produced a revenue of $5,400  for last year.  William Dimond. aged 47, and for  ten years in the Boundary, was found  dead in bed in his cabin last Sunday  morning, on the Dimond fraction  claim, adjoining the Providence. A.  S. Black, the coroner, with a jury,  found the death due to apoplexy. His  property was willed to his neices in  Ireland.  A company is in process of forming,  so 'tis said, for running a four-mile tunnel from Greenwood to Phoenix, to  tap the ore bodies in this camp at  a depth of 1,500 or 2,000 feet. An  engineer will be brought to report,  and then something more will be  known���if the Phoenix mine owners  wish the tapping to be done.  "Confusion" was presented last week  Friday by the Greenwood Amateur  Dramatic Club in Greenwood to a  bumper house; in Grand Forks Saturday night to a small house, that left a  deficit of $75, and in Phoenix Monday  night, as noted elsewhere. In Grand  Forks A. B. W. Hodges took the entire party, after the show, in his auto  to his home at the Granby smelter,  and entertained them.  Another Boundary weekly has gone  into the journalistic boneyard, the  Anaconda News announcing its last  week's issue as its last���for the present,  anyway. Master Robert Keffer, son  of Frederick Keffer, was editor and  publisher of this diminutive sheei with  pages 5 }4 by 8J4 inches in size, which  has been published for some eight  years, nearly. Master Robert will  start shortly for Pullman, Wash., where  he will enter the Washington State  College, and take a mining engineering and general scientific course. The  News will be missed.  Not a little speculation has been indulged in all over the Boundary as a  result of a dispatch published in a  Spokane paper a few days ago, dated  from Boston, to the effect that Granby  engineers were examining the mines of  the B C. Copper and Dominion Cop  per Cos., and that a consolidation of  interests seemed to be in the air.  Jay P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Co., when interviewed in  Spokane last Wednesday regarding the  rumor, is quoted as having made the  following statement:  "There is nothing in that rumor. I  have seen it, but it has no foundation  as yet. It is true that our engineers  have examined the properties, but they  have frequently done so, and there is  no significance in that. We have always followed a policy of extending  our holdings when it was to our advantage, and I will not say that we may  not combine later. Whatever has been  done has been for the mutual interests  of the companies concerned. There  may, however, be no further developments."  W. C. Thomas, general manager of  the Dominion Copper Co., who was  here Monday, and who is now off to  the coast, and J. E. McAllister, general  manager of the B. C. Copper Co., who  is now in the east, were asked by the  Pioneeer before they left what there  was to the above story of consolidation,  and neither one of them professed to  know anything about it. Mr. Thomas  said that he had frequently visited both  the Granby mines and smelter, on a  friendly visit, looking over the works  and properties, and that return visits  by O. B. Smith, Jr., of the Granby  mines, were not necessarily signifi  cant. Mr. McAllister has also fre-,  quently visited Phoenix and Grand  Forks and noted the way that the  Granby Co. conducted operations.  Some Past Rumors.  In the last two" years there have repeatedly been reports circulated of  proposed amalgamations of the copper  producers of the Boundary, but thus  far none of them have proved to have  any foundation in fact.  At one time it was stated that the B.  C. Copper Co. and Dominion Copper  Co.   would   amalgamate,   and  eastern  financial journals printed the story with  great elaboration.    Then the Consoli  dated Co. was reported to  have  con  sol'dated with  the   Dominion  Copper  Co., and this week Mr.   Thomas  said  that he had even   heard   that   day, in  this last  connection, that  Robert R.  Hedley had been slated   for the management of the properties.    Mr. Hedley was manager for the   Hall   Mining  and Smelting   Co.   at   Nelson, and  is  now gathering statistics for Manitoba,  Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia  for   the   mines   department at  Ottawa.  Thus, it is not surprising that the  Granby Co. should be mixed up in all  this consolidating and amalgating business, though this is the first time that  its name has been mentioned in these  connections.  : Work has been resumed at the  Maple Leaf group, in Franklin camp.  The Dominion Copper Co. now has  about 3,400 shareholders on its  books. ' .������.'������  The Sally, one ol the West Fork's  high grade stand-bys, is shipping a car  of ore to Trail and preparing for still  another.  Fofthe year 1907 it is understood  that the British Columbia Copper Co.  produced 8,119,502 pounds of copper,  and made net earnings in the neighborhood of $700,000.  A new line, to carry 2,000 volts, is  being built by the Granby Co. to the  Curlew outlet, to operate the terminal  machinery there and the trolley engine  that will run on the tunnel level.  At the Granby mines and smelter a,  total of 35 separate telephones are in  use, to connect the several parts of the  works. At the smelter a 26-pair cable  lias been built over a mile to connect  with the Grand Forks telephone exchange.  Next Monday, February 3, is the  date limit for receiving bids on the  $50,000 debenture six per cent bonds  of the Providence Mining Co Sec.  Madden states that the company has  shipped over $400,000 worth of ore to  the smelters.  The West Kootenay Power ���.. Light  Co. is sending more juice eighty miles,  over the mountains from Bonnington,  into the Boundary, now that the  Granby has from 800 to 1,000 men at  work. Other demands in this section  are comparatively small at present, but  will grow larger a little later.  At a meeting of the Royal Victoria  Gold Mining Co., held at Greenwood  last Monday, the proposition to bond  the Golden Eagle group, on the North  Fork, near the Volcano, to J. A.  Thompson, of Spokane, for $50,000,  was not accepted; but another meeting  of those interested will be held in a few  days.  That Long Tunnel.  The Greenwood Ledge says that it  is proposed to run a tunnel from Greenwood to Phoenix, tapping the leads between here and there and getting under  Phoenix 2,100 feet. The tunnel would  be a little over three miles in length  .and cost three millions of dollars.  Chicago capitalists are interested in the  project and have already elected a  president for the preliminary company  and a representative will soon be in  Greenwood to-Jook- over._the ground.  If built, this tunnel will vastly increase  the business of Greenwood. Many of  this kind of tunnels are now in use  throughout England and the United |  States.  GRANBY MAKING  A BIG RECORD  Standing Order of 3r  200 Tons Daily.  Full Battery of 8 Furnaces Now  In  Blast.  With a standing order at the mines  for 3,200 tons of oro daily, the Granby  Co,- is beginning to get in shape to  shatter all ptevious records for smelting  ore. About the middle of this week  the eighth furnace of the battery at the  smelter was blown in, and barriug unforeseen contingencies, the smelter will  from this on use up more than 3,000  tons of Phoenix ore every 24 hours.  At the mines of the company the  force employed is now said to be as  large as ever in the company's history,  there being upwards of 500 men at  work in the various departments���  which is about the average when the  properties are working at the present  lullest capacity; At the mine office,  from 50 to 100 men apply for work  every day, yet.  Two ore trains are sent out from  Phoenix daily over both the C. P. R.  and Great Northern, the former taking  about 32 cars per day and the latter  about 38 or 40 cars. Nearly every  day a carload of blister copper is  shipped east to the refinery.  As soon as spring breaks?it is the  intention of the Granby management  to begin getting ready for proposed enlargements at the smelter. The No. 1  furnace, the one'first put in and blown  in there, over seven years ago, will be  deepened four feet and lengthened the  same distance. Castings are now  being made for this furnace, and if the  plans work out satisfactorily, the other  seven furnaces will also be enlarged���  the entire enlargement meaning an, increase of about 25 per cent in smelting  capacity.  CATHOLIC CHURCH  IN GOOD SHAPE  No Debts and Has $452 on  Hand.  Father Bedard and the members of  the Church of Our Lady of Good  Counsel, of Phoenix, have cause to be  congratulated on the splendid showing  of that little organization. Not only  was the year 1907 closed with everything paid for, but with $452 on hand.  Father Bedard is considering putting  an addition 20x40 feet on the building,  more than doubling its seating capacity.  For the year ending December 31,  1907, the statement is as follows:  RECEIPTS.  Balance  on   hand Jan.

Murdock Mclntyre has deciced  to install a sawmill near Silica Siding,  a mile or two below Hartford Junction,  and about two miles from Phoenix by  wagon. After many vexatious delays  the C. P. R. has at last put his special  spur in from the Silica spur, and when  the sawmill is in running order, he  will not only be prepared to ship dimension lumber to all parts, but can  supply the local demand. This week  he was busy getting things ready at the  sawmill site, shipping in the boiler,  etc. He expects to ship a good deal  of cordwood, also, from the Mclntyre  spur, the first cars having already been  sent up to Phoenix. The sawmill  will have a capacity of about 20,000  feet daily, the mill now being on the  way iiere from Spokane.  Will Discount Light Rates.  The annual general meeting of the  Phoenix Electric Lighting Co., Ltd.;  was held last Saturday evening in the  office of the secretary, J. L. Martin.  The board of directors elected consisted of G. W: Wooster, G. W. Rumberger, W. Y. Williams, J. L. Martin  and W. C. Hower. The directors  afterwards elected the following officers:  President, G. W. Rumberger; vice-president and treasurer, G. W. Wooster;  secretary and manager, J. L. Martin.  The directors decided that in future a discount of ten per cent on the  schedule of rates for lighting would  be given to those who paid their rates  before the 15th of the month at the  office of the secretary, providing no  special arrangement had been otherwise made. The company is in fairly  good shape, having assets of about  $60,000 in the lighting and water  systems of the city. Latterly there  has been little or no trouble with the  water supply, something for which the  consumers as well as the directors are  thankful.

The Japanese immigration question  in British Columbia continues very  much to the fore, and the "Solid  Seven" Liberal representatives, ��� who  had so little to say when the existing  treaty with Japari'was endorsed by the  Laurier government, are making much  noise and many long speeches now,  possibly to draw attention away from  the former occasion. They feel, prob  ably, that further silence on their' part  is the equivalent of political suicide,  and they may be right.  No* one? has. had- more to say at  Ottawa than _ur own1 Duncan'Ross,  and'his'latest "diatribe is an'attack on  Hon. W.' J."

Certainly not in  the United States, where we are accustomed to look when things financial  are mentioned. Had the failure occurred there, depositors by the thousand would have mourned their loss  and cursed the bankers and the government, too. ;And they could hardly be  blamed, either.  It is another signal proof of the  efficacy of the Canadian banking system, and our American cousins, who  are now looking, around to find a plan  of quick relief in times of financial  stringency, would do well to take a leaf  from this book and study it carefully.  It should work just as well south of the  49th parallel as north of it,  OUR COPPER CORNER I  MATTERS OF   iVriCRKST- TO   THOSK   INTERESTED    IN    THK 9  * COPPER   MINING   INDUSTRY fi  B.

An Example For Americans.  The Sovereign Bank, one of the  chartered Canadian institutions,' has  gone into liquidation, and its business  has been taken over by other chartered  banks in Canada. The eminently wise  Banking laws of Canada have made  this transfer possible, and not a depositor in the Sovereign Bank will lose  a dollar.  News to this effect has been spread  broadcast, and while it is not particularly to the credit of the officers of this  bank that it should have practically  failed, it is a source of congratulation  that the system���not the "system" of  of our Socialist friends, nor that of  Thomas W. Lawson���has thus again  been tried in the balance and not  found wanting.  Where else in the world, let us ask,  Prospecting for coal in the outskirts  of Vancouver is in progress.  The Giant-California, at Rossland,  is beginning some test ore shipments.  In 14 years the mines of Rossland  have shipped ore valued at over $40,-  000,000.  February 14th the annual meeting  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. will  be held at Toronto.  i Today (Feb:> 1) the International  Coal & Coke Co. pays its regular  quarterly dividend of two per cent.  The Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company intends to erect a new tipple at  Michel'which' will cost $200,000 and  be 800 feet in length.  In one week this year Slocan-silver-  lead ore shipments were over 1,000  tons, showing an improvement in the  industry in that section.  Rev. Johann Wolffsohn, German  consul at Vancouver, recently bonded  the well known Swede group of copper  claims,' Queen Charlotte islands, for  $90,000, on behalf of German and  English capitalists.  The mining situation in the Lardeau  is improving. The Eva at Camborne  is about to resume active operations  on a large scale, as it is understood  that the company has secured the necessary capital to finance its operations.  The Actual Situation of Copper.  Written /or the Mining and Scientific Press by  James  Douglas.  The copper industry, like the rest of  the country, has been living in a fool's  paradise for the better part of two  years, and finds it difficult to accomodate itself again to normal conditions  of existence.  When the value of stocks of all kinds  rises to fictitious  figures, the   value of  commodities not   unreasonably follows  suit.    Men beleived  that their  paper  wealth was real wealth, and   spent accordingly, giving   too  often,   however,  paper  checks   in   exchange   for  what  they   bought.    And   while this   extravagant expenditure prevailed, to meet  the  demand  for  the  articles  wanted  and to  realize   the  extravagant prices  paid for their commodities,   the manufacturer forced production  to a degree  in excess of his actual legitimate sources  aud   facilities.     When   the   world  returned to its sober senses and realized  that things were not what they seemed,  instead  of   soberly    reorganizing   its  business as   well as its  household expenses, it suffered a violent reaction of  remorse and fear and fell  into a panic  for which there was no really good reason.    This  is    eminetly   true  of the  copper  trade.    It  has   been   passing  through   the  same  phases���first,   excessive elation, then morbid depression,  and now slow recovery   toward reasonableness.   -No  sensible man   believed  copper  would   be worth   25 cents or  supposed that it would  maintain   that  price; but the  pi ice, under abnormal  conditions, kept soaring and   the large  nulls kept buying ahead, to the loss of  the producers  and the mills'   material  gain, as long as the market  continued  steadily rising.    Unfortunetly   for  the  owners of the mills they did not realize  ihat the balloon was   leaking gas,   and  iherefore   did  not  stop   buying   soon  enough.    Nor did the producers know  or appreciate soon enough the   extent  to   which   the  demand for the manufactured article had  begun to   decline.  This really commenced   in April   and  became pronounced in May; neverthe  less,   during  the   whole   summer   the  mines and smelters continued pouring  out their   boom   production,   with the  result that when the bubble actually  burst they found themselves loaded  with a lot of copper which it was inconvenient to carry. Some companies  closed down their smelting works entirely and devoted their feeble efforts  undergrounb to picking up development work, which in the stress of production had fallen woefully behind.  Others were only too glad to reduce  production to the normal, and give  their overworked staff a breathing spell.  But others, especially in operating very  low-grade mines, have maintained their  output and continue to employ:their  full force.  Were if not for the accumulation of  stocks and the extraordinary increase  in the cost of mining and smelting  which have resulted from the so-called  good times, there need bene distress  in the trade, for the present price is  higher than that ruling in 1904, when  the average for electolytic copper was  12^23 cents. But during the prevalence of the high price of copper,  every item that entered into the cost  of the metal, increased to such a figure  that it may safely be assumed that the  cost of mining and smelting copper ore  rose on the average three cents per  pound over that prevailing before the  period of exaltation. Wages, timber,  fuel, and mining supplies increased in  price. The railroads were unable  promptly to handle such freight as  they accepted, and the excessive local  demand for western fuel, 7 or the convenient excuse of car shortage, obliged  thesme'ters in the southwest to import  Eastern coke at very heavy cost. Had  it, been transported promptly and 1 received when a high price was realized  for the copper, its receipt would have  been acceptable; but arriving still at  this lute date, it aggravates the embarrassment. Nevertheless, the values  of what the companies have to consume  are adjusting themselves to the lower  price of what they have to sell,:and  when the process of re-adjustment, is  completed, which should not occupy a  long time, and the trade has recovered  its balance " of mind, so acutely disturbed by'26 cent - copper,- it willbe  found that no one has been- seriously  hurt, except those who speculated recklessly in stocks or in worthless mines.

The  speech from the throne has been read,  has been  replied  to, and  has   been  criticised and endorsed.    The opposition has brought out its usual obstruct  five tactics, and the three lone Socialists have tried hard to keep themselves  from being overlooked  and  forgotten  by saying and doing things to  which  little attention will be paid a week or  two later.    But, over  and   above  all,  one cannot help noting the  improved  financial condition of the province, as  shown by the finance minister's report.  The income continues to  exceed   the  outgo more and more each   ytar, and  the debt of the province  is   being decreased steadily.     When the members  return   to   their   bailiwicks,   they   will  hav<j  done  their   duty and  possibl)  have raised   their  own  salaries���-and  that is something, anyway.  Great   corporations   almost   always  stand in the position of being criticised,  some of it being just and some otherwise.   They deal   with so many individuals ihat it cannot very   well   work  out otherwise.     For instance, there is  hardly a man   in   the   Boundary thai  does not know that, up to  three years  ago, the  C. P. R.   did   not   foster its  Boundary business the  way  it  should  have done, even looking at it from that  company's own selfish financial interest.  The coming of the Great Northern as  a  lactor   here, however,   has   made  a  great change.  Iii some respects the C. P. R. is certainly a progressive concern. Take its  chain of hotels, as  a   sample.    From  the Atlantic to the Pacific these hostel-  ries are kept in a faultless  style from  Alpha to Omega; and they arc appreciated by  tho travelling   public, as   evidenced    by   their   liberal    patronage,  whether in Montreal, in ihe mountains,  or on the Pacific  slope.    'The   newest  of them, the   million   dollar   Empress  hotel,   at  Victoria, opened  only  last  week, seems to cap the climax.    Visitors from  across  the   line, who   have  seen the best everywhere, were free to  bestow liberal praise on   the   C. P. R.  for this its latest effort in the  caravansary line, and it must be merited,  ������������'���  Some of the political prophets have,  for some time  predicted  the coining  downfall ol the present government at  Ottawa, but it remained  for  a patent  medicine almanac, published   by   the  Zam-Buk Co., of Toronto, to everlastingly emblazon them in   print   by   the  million' copies,   more  or  less, in   the  1908 issue.    For  instance,   here  are  some ot the predictions:  "At Ottawa the malefic planets will  be conjoined in meridian, and the Canadian government will therefore find  its position extremely irksome. Danger  threatens those in authority" That  was for January.  March says: "The Canadian government appears none too popular at this  period, and may find its position difficult."  "April: "In Canada I anticipate  changes in administration."  -And so on, through the year.  Whether the wish was father of the  thought with the writer of the above  effusions, or whether he is gifted with  prescience,-must be left to others to  determine. Incidentally, there is no  charge to the Zam-Buk Co. for this  advertisement.  IF your flour doesn't act  right whom do you  blame? The grocer? He  didn't make it.

In a. little booklet issued by tho  National Sanitarium Association under  whose auspices has been established  the Muskoka Free Hospital for Con-  >sumptives, we have tho story told of a  sad c*se of consumption.  A young woman, apparently friendless, came in on a train reaching Fort  William, and immediately procured  work as a domestic. A doctor was  called in to examine her case, as she  appeared to be a consumptive, and she  was at once pronounced a bad case of  tuberculosis.  She waa placed in the small local  hospital of the town, and everything  possible for the moment is being done  to help the patient.  But writing to the Secretory of the  National Sanitarium Association, the  Secretary of the Board of Health aska:  "Is it possible to make room for thi��  patient in the Muskoka Free Hospital  for Consumptives. The local hospital  is crowded for room, and there is really  no place for this poor girl."  Continuing, the Fort William official  adds "I may say that aa far as being  able to pay is concerned, she, as far as  we can learn, has no friends who can  afford to pay for her in an institution.  It is to meet just such cases as these  that the Muskoka Free Hospital for  Consumptives has been opened.  The official reports of the past year  show that more than half the patients  who entered the institution were absolutely free���their maintenance not  costing them a single farthing. Ihe  others only paid a nominal sum ranging from $1.50 to $0.00 a week, only a  few paying the larger amount. Xue  average of each patient was less than  50 cents a day. Tho actual cost of  maintenance to the institution is over  $9.00 a week so that our readers can  readily see how strong a case is made  out by the Trustees in their appeal to  mako provision for just such a patient  as that from Fort William-only one  of scores who are constantly seeking  admission. ........ 1  Contributions on behalf of this work  may be sonfcto: Sir Wm.

Women Who Wear WelL  It is astonishing how great a change a  few years of married llfo often make In  the appearance and disposition of many  women. The freshness, the charm, the  brilliance vanish like the bloom from a  peach which is rudely handled. Tho  matron is only a dim shadow, a faint echo  of tho charming ruaiden. There are two  reasons for this change, ignorance, and  neglect. Few young women apprcciato  tho shock to tho system through tho  change which coroes with marriage and  motherhood. Many neglect to deal with  tho unpleasant pelvic drains and weaknesses which too often come with mar-  riago and motherhood, not understanding  ., that.this toorat drain is robbing tUti C_CCIC  of  lte   freshness  and   tho form  of   its  fairness.

Many Delegates From Greenwood,  Greenwood sent so large a contingent to the bonspiel of the Kootenay  Curling Association, which was held at  Nelson this week, that it is little wonder that they took two or three prizes  in the contests there. There were the  mayor, the gold commisioner, the  stipendiary magistrate, the government  agent, the issuer -of marriage licenses,  tlie postmaster, the plumber, the city  i-ngineer, the undertaker and a few  more. The winning rink of the entire  bonspiel was that of W. G. McMynn,  of Greenwood, which took the Grand  Challenge and the Association cups.  E. Dill's rink captured the VValker-  ville cup."  Morrin's rink, of Phoenix, was on  hand, but was not fortunate enough to  bring back any trophies, having, however, had a most enjoyable time.

I\ 1-L Cosgrove is putting up a new  residence, adjoining his own home at  the head of Old Ironsides avenue.  Police Magistrate A. S. Hood was  in Grand Forks over "last Sunday, and  visited Granby smelter for first time.  Stock taking had been quite the  thing among the merchants of Phoenix  since the first of the year, it. being  largely completed in most cases.  Yesterday's cold snap was the cold,  est.thus far'this winter, the mercury  hovering around zero in Phoenix, and  being much' lower in other Boundary  towns.  New And Excellent Syalem.  A new system of keeping consignees  advised of the movements of carloads  of freight intended for them is about  to be adopted on the C. P. R. lines.  Heretofore it has been the custom  when a carload of freight was considerably overdue for the consignee to  apply to the general freight agent' who  would send out tracers to locate the  car.. This, however, invoved a great  deal of labor on the department and a  greatly increased expense in telegraphic  service.  By the new system the consignee  will be advised whenever his carload  arrives at a divisional point by a postcard sent from the agent there. Thus  oil a carload coming from Winnipeg  to a merchant in Rossland, advices  would be sent from Broadview, Regina  and Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Cran-  brook, etc., and the trouble of telegraphing done away with. The new  system will not apply to consignments  less than carload lots.  He Followed Copy.  Mrs". Marble, after the death of her  husband, Went to Mr. Stone (a dealer  in headstones), and consulted him in  reference to an inscription. She saidi  ���'Put on il: "To my dearest husband,'  and if there be any room left, 'we shall  meet in heaven.'"  Entering the cemetery and going to  her husband's grave, she noticed the  headstone, and quickly rushed to see  how he had engraved it. - The poor  old widow's heart beat with pain when  she read the following on the headsione:  " To my dearest husband, and if there  be any room left, we shall meet in  heaven."  Excellent Presentation ol Confusion.  Monday evening the Greenwood  Dramatic Club presented "Confusion"  at the opera house, for the benefit of  the anti-tubercolosis sanitarium. Tlie  farce comedy was well staged and  well acted, and Phoenix has seen  many shows not .half as well represented. Every member knew his part  and played it in good shape, giving  satisfaction. The orchestra of eight  pieces furnished the best of music for  the entertainment and afterwards for  the dance that was enjoyed.  Unfortunetly, the size of the audience  .was not what it should have been, not  only considering the merit of the play  itself but the cause it was for. Possibly the lack of a payday here for  three months had some effect on it,  and when the company Dlays here  again, from the favorable comments  made, a better house awaits them -  COMING AND GOING  _  Geo. W. Rumberger left on Sunday  for a trip to Spokane and other points.  Rev. C. W. Whittaker visited Grand  Forks this week on Methodist church  business.  O. B.

Woodlund, a Grand Forks  business man, came up Thursday  night, to see his home team beaten  here at hockey,  Edwin Jacobs, editor of the  B.   C.  Mining Record, of Victoria,   arid  for  merly   a   resident  of the  Boundary,  spent several days in this  section  last  week, renewing old acquaintances.  Wm. R. Williams returned Saturday  from a trip east, during which he  visited his sister, Mrs. D. D. Mann, at  Winnipeg, and also the cities of  Toronto, Montreal, New York, Chicago  and Regina.  Manager W. C. Thomas, of the Do  minion Copper Co., left Thursday  morning for Vancouver, to join the  timber cruising excursion that leaves  there for a week's trip north on a  special steamer on Febuary ist.

Kent, of Vancouver, secretary of the  company, recently tendered, takes  effect today, Mr. Kent intending to go  to California.  Wm. Hunter, of Greenwood, came  up the hill Monday to take the Greac  Northern train for Vancouver, where,  with a company of capitalists from the  east, he will board a specially chartered  steamer, and visit some valuable timber  limits in the up coast islands, probably  taking a look at Prince Rupert also  while absent.
