Once more the Dominion smelter  has treated over 5,000 tons of ore in a  week.  Mountain  Rose, in  Summit  camp,  has  joined the shipping list again, the  ore going to the Boundary Falls smel-  | ter.  It will probably be March 1st before  the new crusher is ready for operations  at the Old Ironsides mine. The work  of installing is being pushed as fast as  possible with a large force of men.  Recently in drifting at the 350 foot  level of the Brooklyn mine the big ore  shoot, that was lost by a former management, and never found, was picked  up, better and stronger than ever. It  gives the mine, it is believed, a greatly  added value.  The tunnel being driven on the  Moreen, adjoining the Buckhorn in  Deadwood camp, by the Alliance Gold  and Copper Mining Co., of Minneapolis, has reached a distance of over  80 feet, and is still being pushed with  a small force of men.  This week the Granby Co. took a  working bond on the Pathfinder group,  up the North Fork of Kettle river.  The bond is supposed to be in the  neighborhood of $100,000, no payments to be made till fall. Wednesday a force of men was sent to the  property to begin operations.  Today will be the monthly payday  at the Granby and Dominion mines,  the total amount to be distributed in  l'hoenix camp alone running not far  from $60,000. With the amount the  two companies will pay at their respective smelters, the total will be close to  $100,000 today.  Manager Shallenberger now has the  electric hoist ready for operation at the  Crescent mine, and is waiting for orders from the company's officials in  Chicago to proceed with development  and taking out ore. The bunk house,  hoist house and manager's residence  have also been lighted by electricity.  The Big Copper, owned by John  Moran and the McAuley estate is ship  ping every day from its dump in Copper camp, to a spur at the Mother  Lode mine, by sleigh, and thence by  rail to the Greenwood smelter. It is  reported that something like a thousand tons will be shipped from the  property. The Meyerhoff teams, of  Midway, are doing the hauling.  Wednesday evening Hon. Warner  Miller, of New York, president of the  Dominion Copper Co., Ltd., and M.  M. Johnsion, of Salt Lake City, Utah,  the consulting engineer, came in from  Spokane, where they were met by  Thomas R. Drummond, the resident  manager. They travelled from Spo  kane in the private car of H. M.  Adams, of Seattle, assistant traffic  manager of the Great Northern, with  whom also was W. W. Broughton, of  St. Paul, the general traffic manager of  the road, and R. C. Morgan, superintendent of the S.F. & N. Thursday  evening H. H. Melville, of Boston,  joined the party.  The gentlemen came in this time on  a general trip of inspection of the  mines and smelter of the company, an  extraordinary general meeting of the  company being held here on the 12th  inst., as announced.  Following is the text of a circular recently issued to shareholders by the  Dominion Copper Co., Ltd.:  New York City, Jan. 25, 1906.  To the Shareholders :  The board of directors at a meeting  held January 23rd, 1906, passed a  resolution reciting that in their judgment it was for the best interests of  the company that the denomination of  the shares of the capital stock should  be increased from one dollar each to  ten dollars each, in order to avoid a  large amount of labor which now devolves upon the officers and directors  of the company in executing the great  number of certificates required.  Notice is accoidingly hereby given  that an extraordinary general meeting  of the shareholders and members of  the company will be "held" at the registered office of the company, at Phoenix, British Columbia, on February  12th, 1906, at two o'clock in the afternoon, for the purpose of considering,  acting ��� upon, and, if thought fit, passing the special resolution hereinafter  set forth.  Notice is also given that a subsequent extraordinary meeting of the  shareholders and members of ;he com  pany will be held at said office of the  company on the 27th day ofFebruary,  1906, at two o'clock in the afternoon,  for the purpose of considering, acting  upon, and, if thought proper, confirming said special resolution, or any  other resolution that may be passed  and adopted at said prior meeting.  The following is the proposed special  resolution above referred to :  "Resolved, that the Memorandum  of Association of the company be  amended by striking out the 41)1 Section or subdivision thereof by which it  is provided that "The capital of the  company is five million dollars, divided into five million shares of one dollar  each,"   and   by   substituting   in    lieu  Dealt    With  Matters  Many  I^ast Wednesday evening the first  meeting of the city council for 1906,  at which any work of importance was  done, was held, those present being  his   worship,   Mayor   Rumberger, and  Boundary   Mines  Shipping.

No person is qualified to act as  proxy unless he is a registered shareholder of the company.  Dated New Yotk, January 25,1906.  By order of the Board of Directors:  Wakxer  Mili.ek,  Attest : President.  Leopold Hkrr.max, Secretary.  Firs: School Board Meeting.  The first meeting of the new city  school board was held Tuesday evening, at which A. B. Hood was elected  chairman and Issac Crawford was  chosen secretary. The chief business  to be attended to was the preparation  of the estimates for the current year,  to be turned in to the city council.  This estimate was as follows:  Teachers' salaries $iS6o 00  Janitor services      180 00  Fuel        So 00  Scavenging        4$ 00  Secretary's salary         50 co  Incidentals      300 00  Aldermen Brown, Oxley, Kane, Carson and McKenzie. The report of  the city auditor, Isaac Crawford, was  received and ordered published in the  Phoenix Pioneer as usual, for the information of the ratepayers. It will  be found in another column.  A number of communications were  read by the city clerk, as follows: from  Alex. Rohinson, superintendent of education, saying that the city's recommendations   for  enlargement  of   the  school district  would   have  attention.  From W. J. Porter, on behalf of himself and others, calling attention to the  storage   of powder  in close proximity  to the city.    The clerk was instructed  to secure the opinion of solicitor J. P  Myers-Gray  on   the   subject,   and   to  write to the several mining companies,  warning  them   as   to   the   penalty   of  violating the laws in this matter.  From  Hon. F. J. Fulton, provincial secretary,  notifying the council of the confirmation of Aldermen M. H. Kane and of  W. X. McDonald as police and licensing commissioners for the city.   From  the city school   board, through Secre  tary   Crawford, stating   that   the   estimates showed need for $2,518 for the  public   school   for   1906, and   recommending making the school district a  radius of two miles from the city hall.  Health Officeri' Report.  Drs     Boucher   and   Gordon,   city  medical   health   officers,   presented   a  lengthy   report,   covering   the  late typhoid  fever epidemic, now fortunately  a thing   of  the  past, and with special  reference to the sanitation of  the city.  With the report was   included  the report of A. A. Bruere, M.D., bacteriologist  at   McGill   university,   and   the  Royal Victoria  hospital, Montreal, on  the samples of water and milk sent for  analysis.      Briefly,   the    report   condemned every sample of  water except  that   from   Marshall   lake,   the   city's  main supply.     As many desire to see  the report in full, the Pioneer hopes to  find room   for the complete document  in next week's issue.  One hundred copies of the Pioneer's  Holiday number were ordered sent to  the provincial agent-general in London  and general distribution will be given  to three hundred more by the city  fathers.  An electric light was ordered placed  on the Dominion avenue sidewalk, opposite the mouth of the No. 4 Granby  tunnel. The city clerk reported that  he had $1,900.99 on hand, and the  following accounts were audited by the  finance committee and ordered paid:  C.P.R $ 5-��3  N.P.

The record for the month of  January is the largest in the history of  the Boundary for any one month, running   well   over   100,000 tons of ore,  and there seems to be every probability  that   this   record   will be kept up, and  probably exceeded,' as   the   year  gets  older.    It should be remembered also,  that the first week in this month showed no tonnage at all   from the B. C.  Copper and Dominion  Copper mines,  as the eight hour wage scale was being  adjusted by both companies  at   their  smelters   during   that   week.     Since  then,   however,   shipments have been  regular as   clockwork,   which there is  every  reason to   expect   to   continue,  with a probable increase.

The  pansies  several  of the  winter  has been pretty open and it has not  yet been excessively cold here. This  week a resident of Phoenix stayed over  night in Greenwood and reported zero  weather there, while the same night  the mercury only reached 20 degrees  above here. Everything points to an  early spring, although we are likely to  have some chilly snaps and snowstorms.  Fancy Dress Carnival.  I'rendergast & Munro, proprietors of  the Phoenix Skating Rink, have decided to give their second fancy dress  skating carnival on the evening of Friday, February 23rd. A full list of  prizes will be published next week,  and it is the intention of the management to make this one of the best  events of the season. The full Greenwood brass band has already been engaged for the occasion, which will  doubtless add greatly to the pleasure  of the skaters.  January total  104,378  L. Y. Blrnie it Hospital   Secretary.  At the called meeting of the board  of directors of the Phoenix General  Hospital, held Wednesday evening at  the office of J. L. Martin, the following officers were elected for the year  1906 : President, J. L. Martin; vice-  president, Robert Horrell: secretary-  treasurer, Leslie Y. Birnie. Some  routine business was also attended to,  including the appointment of a committee, consisting of W. A. Pickard.O.  B. Smith, Jr., and W. S. Macy, to act  as a monthly auditing committee.  Those present at the meeting were O.  B. Smith, Jr., W. S, Macy, L. Y. Birnie, R. Horrell, J. L. Martin, and \V.  A. Pickard.  Senator Templeman has Portfolio.  The many friends of Senator Win.  Templeman throughout the province  were pleased to hear this week that  that gentleman had been sworn in at  Ottawa as minister of inland revenue.  Mr. Templeman will resign his seat in  the senate and contest the constituency  of Victoria, his home, George Riley  dropping out to give him the opportunity of doing this.  It has taken a long time for British  Columbia to have one of its representatives at Ottawa given a portfolio, and  the mantle falls on a man who has  long deserved it at the hands of his  party.  A Boston financial paper makes the  following interesting statements about  Granby Consolidated :  Dividend checks sent out by the  Granby Co. went to 1924 stockholders. A year ago the number of  stockholders was less than 1000. Of  the 1,350,000 shares, less than 50,000  shares are now held in Canada. * -Two  years ago, before the American Metal  Co. people became interested in the  company, 90% of the stock of this  company was held in.Canada.  The Granby fine copper production  in 1905 was 17,535,500 pounds. The  company is now producing at the rate  of between 24,000,000 and 25,000,000  pounds per annum. In December it  treated So,000 tons of ore, and made  over 2,000,000 pounds of copper.  With the remodeling of two of the  old furnaces and the installation of another converter stand, which will take  about three months, the Granby production will be still further increased  to possioly a 30,000,000 pounds per  annum basis.  The Granby will probably treat  r,000,000 tons of ore in 1906. Its  smelting capacity is now 2700 cons per  day. It has one of the best equipped  and most economical copper-smelting  plants in the world.  In 1905 a recovery of but 26 pounds  of copper per ton of rock was secured..  With such a low grade of ore, the  necessity of saving every cent possible  on each ton of ore sent to the smelter  has brought about economies that have  heretofore been unheard of in the history of copper mining and smelting.  A large measure of credit for the  successful smelting operations at the  Granby belongs to A. B. W. Hodges,  the general superintendent. Within a  year, Mr. Hodges has successfully  solved the problem of automatic charging of the blast furnaces. His system  has now been in successful operation  at the Granby smelter for six months,  and it effects a saving of about $So,  000 per annum.  The Granby Co. is now earing  about $175,000 net per month. The  stock has been placed upon a 6%,  dividend basis which amounts to $67.-  500 per month.  Latest Prices in Metals.

Both Grand Forks and Greenwood  citizens are taking up the burning  question of better freight rates for the  Boundary, it being patent to all that  the present freight rates are excessive  all along the line. The Grand Forks  people succeeded in getting the freight  men of the C.P.R. and Great Northern  k.t a conference in that city last week  to discuss the matter, and the announcement was made that a readjustment was being considered and- an  announcement along these lines would  shortly be made.  Now, there is no doubt that the  present rates could be lowered considerably without the railways running  behind in expenses, but the question  is, can sufficient pressure be brought to  bear on the officials to accomplish the  much to be desired end? We believe  that it can, and if it is not successful  now it will be later on. Doubtless  the railways have their troubles in endeavoring to persuade shippers that  they are not putting on all the charges  that the traffic will bear. They, for  instance, are now hauling ore for 25  cents per ton���roughly, an average of  a cent per ton per mile���whereas the  C.P.R. at one lime exacted three limes  that amount in the Boundary, namely,  75 cents per ton. When they get a  chance, they work it. For instance,  this office recently made a fifty pound  shipment by freight to Vancouver and  had the pleasure of paying the C.P.R.  $2.51 (wonder what that odd cent was  for?) for handling it. That is a sample.  We must have more equitable rates,  and the railways might as well make  up their minds to it, first as last.  Keep up the agitation, and good results will follow in course of time.  send out printed copies of his Ymir  peroration. This he faithfully did,  and to party organs that were hard up  for copy it satisfied the printers lor  quite a time, and also crowded out  other matter that would have been of  more interest, for Mr. Curtis can never  be accused of practicing brevity. In  fact, some weeklies that printed the  yards and yards of speech had little  else in them that week.  In many ways Mr. Curtis's remarks  were interesting, as they always  were and are. He did not mince  matters, but made some positive statements, in good faith, no doubt, but  which are still to be proved. However, those who took a day off to read  them through could see at a glance  that Mr. Curtis is a hidebound party  man���something his many friends were  well aware of before���and that, therefore, the sweeping accusations should  be taken cum grano salis.  For a few years past last Mr. Curtis  Curtis has been giving his attention  largely to mining in the Boundary and  elsewhere, but this latest effort would  seem to indicate that he proposes to  break into politics once more and at  no distant date. If he does, there is  one thing certain, he will make things  lively wherever he may shy his caster  into the political ring, for Mr. Curtis  is not the man to take a back seat.  Representative Journal.  The Pioneer Publishing Company of  Phoenix, British Columbia, has issued  a holiday number of the Phoenix  Pioneer, the representative journal of  the Boundary district of British Columbia. The number is a very valuable  one, as it describes and illustrates what  are now among the largest and most  valuable copper-mining properties in  North America. This special edition  is in magazine form of 68 pages and  cover. All the large mining properties,  such as the Granby, the British Columbia, the Dominion Copper, and many  others, are described and illustrated.  There is also an excellent view of the  city ol Phoenix, another of the town  of Midway; one also of the city of  Greenwood, all of which enable the  reader of this handsome holiday number to form some estimate of the  substantial and remarkable progress  the Boundary district of British Columbia has made during the last few  years. The price of this special number is 25 cents.���Los Angeles Mining  Review.  Excellent Holiday Number.  The Phoenix Pioneer is one of the  most enterprising journals in the province, and its editor, \V. B. Willcox,  has accomplished a great deal in the  direction of advertising the mining and  smelting industries of the Boundary  district/ His latest production is a  great improvement upon former efforts  and the handsome special number in  magazine form which we have just received is decidedly creditable both  from a literary and a mechanical stand*  point. It is profusely il'ustrated with  good cuts, and the concise and comprehensive letterpress, free from the  nauseating boom flavor, is further explained by a series of excellent maps  of various sedions of the district.  Copies of the publication may be obtained for 35 cents, and anyone seeking information with regard to the  mines and smelters of southeastern  British Columbia can do no better  than procure this splendid exposition of  Boundary resources.���Vernon (B.C.)  News.  and shipped to the smelters, being a  new record. Boundary mines sent  out 75 per cent of this ore.  Prospects of a successful coal mine  three miles from Enderhy are said to  be bright. Experts from the Old  Country have pronounced the product  equal to the best Cumberland coal,  and the seam has been traced four  miles, being sixteen feet wide.  John Rogers, president oi'the Pathfinder Mine Company, has just taken  options on a nurabw of mineral claims  near the Pathfinder, on the North  Fork of Kettle river. The options are  practically in the shape of working  bonds.  The outlook for the mining industry  in the vicinity of Kamloops for the  current year is brighter than at any  other period in its history. This is  partly clue to the fact that during i9��5  the value of at least one property, the  Iron Mask mine on Coal hill, about  six miles from that city, has been demonstrated. During the summer an  experimental hot-blast smelter, sixty  tons capacity, was erected and has  since been in steady operation, as was  also the concentrator which was enlarged early in the year.

STRICTLY BUSINESS  The advertising columns of the  newspaper is the modern Rialto���the  meeting place where buyer and seller  get together.  When a prospective purchaser sees  the advertisement of a business concern  in a reputable publication it fixes that  concern's identity.  If you can't be original in your advertising endeavor to be interesting.  If you can't be interesting try, at least,  to be truthful. If you can't be truthful don't advertise.  No friendly wind is going to pilot  your business ship to the port of  profit. You must map out the course  of your entire business voyage before  you lift the anchor of initiative or set  the sail of action.  There are in existence today hun  dreds of small businesses which could  be enlarged and the margin of profit  greatly increased were the owners sufficiently courageous to inaugurate effective advertising campaigns. .  Advertising is a mighty good umbrella to carry along with you at all  times���through sunshine or rain. Under its far-reaching shelter you will  never get scorched by the sun of indolent prosperity nor be drowned by  the flood of business adversity.  Spoke His Little Piece.  Some two or three weeks ago Smith  Curtis, member for Rossland riding  when the Boundary was the tail end  of that political procession, recently  made a speech at Ymir, largely devoted to graft and things of that kind,  which he accused the McBride government and the C.P.R. of practising.  Now, Mr. Curtis is certainly a bright  fellow, if he is a  Grit, and  he  knew  PROVINCIAL.  ���o  (  I  o  Hughie Cameron predicts new life  for Camp McKinney this coming  spring.

The C.P.R. will expend $200,000  in extending and improving its telegraph system west of Lake Superior.  The Kuskanook is the name of the  new steamer being built by the C.P.R.  at Nelson for the Kootenay lake service.  Glanders are still raging in the  central and western parts of the province, and many valuable equines are  being destroyed.

Views of a Generally Recognized Copper Authority.  Horace J. Stevens, the well known  copper authority, says that those who  are in closest touch with mining enterprise know that it is when successful,  the most remunerative of all legitimate  lines of industry. They also under  stand that a certain amount of risk is  inherent in every new mining venture.  Most important of all is the fact that  long experience���and in many cases  sore experience���has taught them that  no mining venture can be successful  unless combining at least four absolutely indispensable elements.  These four requirements are ore,  management, money and time. The  time will provide itself, if the other  three are furnished, but if any one ol  the three elements first named be missing failure is certain in at least 99 per  centum of the cases. The best of  managements with the most of money  cannot make a mine without ore, but a  good management does not go into a  venture where the chances for getting  ore are not favorable. Ore alone will  not make a mine. To develop the ore  there must be a large cash outlay, collected by men who are honest, experienced and capabie.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 7,480 tons, or 33,650 tons for  1906.  The bounty collected on lead for  the past calendar year was $334,224.  The total amount paid in all for bounty  to date is $2,580,032.

McMaster & Sons, Ltd.  VANCOUVER, B.C.  Following is the report of the secretary-treasurer of tlie Phoenix General  Hospital for the year 15)05, and also that  of the auditors, submitted at the annual  meeting of the hospital held February 1,  1906:  Secretary'! Statement.  Time has proved the memory of mankind Fhort and unreliable. * For this  reason a. brief review of the struggles of  the hospital may not be out of place.  When the building waB completed  four years ago this spring, to protect it  from'lieriH, the diiectors found it neces-  eary to place a $2,000 nmrtgtge upon the  property at seven per cent per annum.  We then had a building and a debt; but  before it- could be uaed it was necessary  to have some furnishings. Accordingly  a few old second hand beds and bedding  were bought in Greenwood, which together with two heating stoves, a common No. 8 cook stove and three or four  disabled chairs constituted the equipment of Phoenix General Hospital, and  the opening occurred on or about July  1st, 1902. A matron and one nurse constituted the hospital staff, which was  able to handle the work for nine months  bv working from 1G to 20 hours a shift.  Since opening the hospital it has been  the policy of the management to gradually increase the equipment by first  securing the things most needed. It is  but juin to add here that the physicians,  knowing our financial condition, have  been most considerate in their requirements for equipment, only asking for  such appliances and instruments as were  absolutely necessary. And 1 can say  that even now the equipment is scarcely  half what it should be. With these  petty debtB and interest���with constantly arising new needs and ever re-  curing old oneB which have swallowed  up every dollar as soon as it was received, the matter of financing the institution  has been anything but an easy or a  pleasant one.  The history of financing hospitals has  ever been the same. In all new countries hospitals have had to struggle for  existence during their formation period.  In older communities capitalists find a  desirable and convenient outlet for some  of their surplus capital by creating sinking fuwdi and subsidizing hospitals.  Ladies with means vie with oach other  to Fee who can donate the handsomest  and most appropriate furnishings for  privdte ward*; farmers donate their  largest potatoes and best fruits; wills  often contain handsome donations; all  municipalities make annual or monthly  appropriations; so that financing a hospital bocomes comparatively easy in  such communities. Notwithstanding  these facts even the most favored hospitals often find it necessary to appeal to  the public for assistance. I have yet to  learn of an instance where any community has been injured directly or indirectly by reason of any such appeal  having" been made���where such appeal  was made in good faith and in the  proper spirit.  In March, 1903, it became necessary  to increase, the staff, which was done by  adding the third nurse. In the meantime the increased mining business and  growth of the city created a proportionate increase in patients which has made  the work equally as hard lor the three  as it was formerly for the two. And  while we have paid the ruling waged for  nurses in British Columbia, we recognize  that it has been very, much too little for  the work discharged. In view of the  unusual demand upon the permanent  staff for the months of December and  January last past an increase of $20 eaeh  was allowed for December and $10 each  for January. It is the intention of the  outgoing board to recommend a permanent increase in wages or the addition  of one more nurse, if preferred by the  staff.  During the years 1903 and 1904 improvements consisting of a steam heating plant, septic tank, coal bunkers,  janitor's living room, lining the basement with tar paper and lumber, putting in doors and windows, cutting doorway between rooms on the first floor,  fitting up clothes closets and a vegetable  locker and ice storage, etc., were made,  and the installing of a large new range,  at a cost of nearly $2000. And some of  the accounts went not paid for more  than two years. The interest for the  year ending May 14th, 1905, is still unpaid. 1 challenge any man !������> show how  or where, under the multitudinous difficulties and trying circumstances with  which the board has had to contend,the  work could have been carried on more  economically or a greater degree of proficiency attained.  Report.  I am both pleased and pained to submit my report for thsi year ending December 31st, 1905. Pleased because the  results will compare favorably with any  like institution in the northwest, and  pained because a icview of the year's  records will recall bereavements and  losses, which to many friends have been  hard to bear. To the bereft both the  board and hospital staff extend condolence and sympathy.  The past year has been the heaviest  in the history of the hospital. Two hundred and twelve patients were treated,  with a total of 2ti87 hospital days,which  is an average ol 12 3-4 days per patient.  The maximum number of patients lor  one month was 51, the minimum number 10. The average number of patients  per month 17'--i; there were 9 deaths;  there were 100 contiact and 52 private  patients. The only variance from our  heretofore established fee rates, was  where two or more patients occupied a  sing'e private ward. In such cases the  fee was made $17.50 per week per patient.  The Hospital Ladies Aid continues to  he one of the strongest, factors in the  financial ami moral support of the hospital. During the year this society contributed from two social a Hairs $143.50.  The "bachelors" of Phoenix gave 11 benefit dance which netted $1(52.10. The  matron, assisted by her stall', gave a  social dance at the hospital from which  the net. returns were $42 55, which was  applied toward calcimirung the general  ward.  At the end of November the city was  laid prostrate by a general typhoid epidemic, which proved to be of the most  virulent type. More than 50 eases have  treated at Ihe hospital. It was soon evident that our hospital was inadequate.  The directors at once built, a three room  cottage adjoining the hospital for the  use of the staff and converted their  rooms into private wards More room  being required the city council very  magnanimously fitted up the new city  hall and tendered the use of  it  to  the  board, after having donated the furnishings. The overflow hospital at one time  contained 22 patients. Nurses were  called by wire from many places until  our staff numbered 14 and 3 cooks.  In this connection I am pleased to report in addition to the above staff. King  Kdward Lodge No. 36 of Free Masons  and Snowshoe Lodge No. 146, I.O.O.F.,  came to our relief by supplying the hospital with a man nurse from Spokane,  and presenting the hospital with his receipted accounts. This generous and  humanitarian act on the part of these  secret orders has been a source of deepest gratification to the board. The  Miners' Union also through its committee offered to assist the board in securing iiursesand secured the services of a  man nurse for a few nights, which services were deeply appreciated.  The strained conditions in every department, meant excessive expense in  every direction. Hotel accommodations  had to be secured tor a portion of the  staff, and for still others lodgings near  the hospital; travelling expenses and  wages and telegraphic messages had to  be met for nurses from a distance; a  large number of beds, springs, mattresses  and bedding, towels, night robes, drugs  and much new equipment had to be ordered. So it became apparent that new  funds would be required. 'Jherefore  subscription papers were circulated in  the city and an appeal made to the city  and capitalists and business houses interested in the city and doing busines-  in both a wholesale and retail way with  our merchants and citizens.  The donations received as a direct result of these appeals aieas follows:  Local subscriptions  $ 159 95  T. K.

One  short month has brought forth a  vast change and I now consider myself a well man after months of  suffering.  "Fellow sufferers, Peruna will  cureyotu "���Llewellyn Jordan.  $2018 63  Notwithstanding the good work done  by all interested parties and the hearty  and generous response to our appeal, I  call your attention to the fact that our  cash on hand, as per the auditors report,  at the end of the year was $513 63,  against which there are bills payable of  $210, which if paid would leave a'balance  on hand of $308 18. A car of coal will  have to be ordered almostatonce, which  will cost nearly the amount of this balance.  The advisability of reducing private  ward fees from $25 to $20 per week has  been before the directors and may receive Uvorable action at the next meeting.  The hospital has never been in so prosperous a condition, and had it been fully  equipped in every particular at the. beginning, there is scarcely room for a  doubt but that it would now be self-supporting. But so long as it is riot fully  equipped and with the buildings stand  ing in almost immediate need of painting and caleirnining, the citizens may  expect to be called upon from time to  time to rally to its support through all  the channels heretofore employ, d. All  communities aid their hospital by grants  from the public funds and by private  subscriptions and Phoenix can expect a  successful institution in no other way.  With the heartiest thanks on behalf  of the board of directors and for myself,  to all who have so kindly,generously and  earnestly seconded our efforts to conduct  the hospital on the broad lines of a general hospital���a hospital for all the  people of this district���I leave the work  of a good cause and a noble instil ution to  other hands.

More prominent physicians use and  endorse Peruna each year.  Dr. A. Morgan, 211 Gater street, In  dianapolis, Ind., writes:  "Regular physicians do not, as a  rule, endorse patent medicines. I  have, however, found In my practice  that Peruna Is a notable exception and  not at all like any other medicine generally sold as 'patent medicine.'  "In examining it I find that it Is a  scientifically prepared medicine, composed of herbal remedies 0/ high medicinal value.  "It is a specific for catarrh of the  head, lungs or stomach, a fine remedy  for female troubles, and invaluable to  mothers and children.  "After fevers or other protracted illness, it is one of the best tonics I know of  to restore the system to normal condition  and I recommend it to convalescents.

S Kidding to increase the  tariff on materials used in their particular line of business, explaining that  the increasing importations of American  made shoes threatened to swamp the  the home industry. Mr. Kidding replied : "Gentlemen, you'll have to  advertise. You can get relief fiom  printer's ink."  Robert R. Roberts, M. D., Washington, D. C, writes:  '���Throughmy own experience as  well as that of many of my friends  and acquaintances who have been  cured or relieved of catarrh by the  use ot Hartman's Peruna, I can  confidently recommend it to those  suffering from such disorders, and  have no hesitation in prescribing It  to my patients. "-Robert R. Roberts.  !ss8S5gssgsssaBa!afesgiaa'{fl-  Catarrh is a systemic disease curable  only by systemic treatment. A remedy  thateures catarrh must aim dlroetly at  tho depressed nerve centers. This U  what Peruna does.  l'eriiniv immediately Invigorates tho  nerve centers which give vitality to tho  mucous membranes. Then catarrh disappears. Then eatarah is permanently  cured.  Pc-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.  One reason why lVruna has found permanent uso in so many homes is that it  contains no narcotic of any kind. Peruna is perfectly liarmU'Mt, It can bo  used any length of time without acquiring a drug habit. P'-runa does not produce temporary results. 11 is permanent  in its effect.  It has no bad effect upon the system,  and gradually eliminates catarrh by removing the cause of catarrh. Thoru are  a multitude of homes where Peruna has  been used off and on for twonty years.  Such a thing could not ho possible if  Peruna contained any drugs of ft narcotic nature.  Corporation of the City of Phoenix  Receipts and Expenditures for   Year ending  Dec. 3Jst, 1905.  Rbceiits.

News was received here Tuesday  that James H. Trevorrow died Monday  at Los An-eles, California, whither he  had gone from his home in Rossland.  The cause of his demise was pulmonary trouble, and his host of friends in  this camp were unpleasantly surprised  at the sudden news. He left Rossland on January nth for the benefit  of his health.  Mr. Trevorrow lived in Phoenix  with his family for several years, being  foreman at the Snowshoe mine during  almost the entire time that property  was being operated. About two yeors  ago the family moved to Rossland,  where he assumed the supenntendency  of the LeRoi mine. He was born in  Cornwall, England, 44 years ago, and  for years wns employed as a miner at  the great Calumet and Hecla property  in Michigan, where he learned the  mining business. Later he came to  Rossland and worked in the LeRoi.  In that city he formed a warm friendship with J. W. Astley, until recently  manager of the LeRoi. In 1889 both  of them came to the Boundary and  operated the Snowshoe, until it was  closed over two years ago, when they  returned to Rossland.  "Jim" Trevorrow, as he was best  known, was one of the best miners  that ever came to the Boundary, had  many friends, and his employers always the greatest confidence in him.  His oldest child, Jim, is but 13 years  of age, and much sympathy is expressed for the family.  Deceased was one of the first members to join King Edward Lodge, No.  36, A.P'. & A.M., and was most active  in lodge work as long as he lived in  Phoenix, and kept up his membership  here to his death. King Edward  Lodge arranged to have his remains  brought to Rossland for burial, according to the wish of the widow, and the  body was shipped from Los Angeles  by the Masonic order there on Thurs  day.
