In the private bills committee last  Tuesday at Victoria, the bill of the  West Kootenay Power and Light Co.  for the extension of the area of its operations into the Boundary country was  again under consideration.  Senator Warner Miller, of New York,  president of the Dominion CopperCo.,  whose works are located at Boundary  Falls, near Greenwood, testified that  he had become interested in this property under the impression that there  was an unlimited source of supply for  electric power to develop the properties. He.also expected that the conditions were as they were in New York  state, where there was absolute liberty  given to all power companies to enter  into any contracts they saw fit, in the  state, and where there was free competition. Had he known that the conditions here were such as they turned  out to be, he would not have gone into  this proposition. The immediate need  of this company was for from 750 to  1000 horse power. If this power could  be got a smelter capable of handling  3000 tons of ore a day would be erected, and this smelter would itself require 2000 horse power. He said that  when the Dominion Copper Co. took  hold of the Montreal and Boston Co.'s  properties, it acquired mines near  Greenwood, Grand Forks, Phoenix and  elsewhere. Senator Miller said he was  out here to arrange for the future development of the property owned by  the company and in attempting to do  this he-found some difficulty with the  Cascade Power Co.  Declined to Furnish Necessary Power.  If it were not possible to get power,  the new works would not'be undertaken. There was abundance of low  grade ore but in competition with Utah  and other states, cheaper power must  be provided than that supplied by  steam. At present the high price of  copper makes it possible to run with  steam, but the present price could not  be expected to continue. They might  hold up for six months and good prices  might continue for some time longer.  His company had stopped work on  their new plant. Now, he said, he  had to contract for power. Offers had  been received from the Cascade Power  Co. and the West Kootenay Power Co.  He had no connection with either company. The Cascade company declined  to furnish all they power necessary.  They offered to furnish power, subject  to contracts with other companies.  In reply to Bowser, Senator Miller  said that the electric machinery and  smelter improvements now proposed in  'lie piesent smelter would cost about  $75,000. The building of a 3000 ton  smelter would cost $500,000 to $750,-  000.  in reply to Bodwell, Senator Miller  said he did not care where the power  came from as long as it was a continuous supply and was given.at a reasonable rate. If the low grade ores of  British Columbia were to bedeveloped  the mine and smelter owners would  have to be given an opportunity to get  all necessary power. He h^d been accustomed to competition.  Bodwell said he would like to assure  Senator Miller that the Cascade Power  Company had not in view the preventing of competition. All that his company sought was that their $500,000  investment should not be rendered  useless by another company commg in  and putting them out of business.  ' Wanls 2,700 H. P.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Company, at  Greenwood, also gave evidence, and  said that his company had a capacity  of from 650 to 700 tons of ore a day.  If his company could get the necessary  power it would undertake to handle  2000 tons :i day by September. After  operating for several years it had been  found that it was impossible to make a  profit on the scale on which the property was being worked. Works had  been put up on the understanding that  the ore was really richer than it was  found to be and it was decided, therefore, that the only way to make a profit  on the investment was to increase the  capacity. It was decided that an investment of $750,000 would be made  in machinery. Of this, $40,000 would  be in an electrical outfit, which would  represent 2700 horse power. At present the company used 700 horse  power. This was obtained from the  Cascade Power Co. Part of the 2700  horse power referred to would be used  in the Mother Lode and Emma mines.  The Cascade Power Co. was not always able to furnish the minimum supply of power. In January and February of last year this was not received.  He did not blame the Cascade company for this. There was a shortage  of water in the Kettle river which  ac  counted for the trouble. This shortage forced the company to stop operations at this time. The cost of  operating under electric power was  about one-third of the cost by steam.  To operate a plant by steam would be  prohibitive in cost.: When he entered  into the contract with the Cascade  company, he was not aware that there  was any priority of claim upon their  power. He afterwards found that the  Granby smelter and others had prior  claim on the supply. When his company decided to put in an electric supply, the Cascade company would not  put in a line, but agreed that the B. C.  Copper Co. should do so, and then retain the cost with interest, in paying  for the power supplied. This he contended, was an unprecedented action  by any power company.  Bodwell contended that the Cascade  Power Co. was justified in not agreeing to put in a line where the supply  of power needed was not large, and  where no guarantee was put up as to  the amount that would be required  later. ���'  In reply to other questions, McAllister agreed that it would not be in  the best interests of the Boundary  country to put all chance of competition from the Cascade Company. He,  however, did not think this was likely  to follow. Bodwell could not see how  it would be otherwise if all smelter  companies cancelled their contracts  with the Cascade Company.  Lome Campbell, manager of the  West Kootenay Power Co., was asked  if there was no danger of his company  increasing the price of power on completion of contracts now entered into  with the various smelters for the next  four or five years. Campbell replied  that it would be impossible to do so,  as the companies would still have a  chance to utilize the Columbia river  for power, and so prevent an increase  in prices. ���-��� ���  C.H. FLOOD  CHIEF POLICE  Boundary Mining Notes  Appointed  by Commissioners  Thursday Night.  Will Take Office Next  day.  Mon-  MUNROE ARRESTED  ON SERIOUS CHARGE  $ 15,000 Bail Furnished in New  York.  Late Montreal papers contain notice  of the arrest of GeorgeML Munroe, of  the firm of Munroe & Munoe, on the  serious charge of getting $25,000  from Hon. Warner Miller, now president of the Dominion Copper Co.  Mr. Munroe gave bail in the sum required, $15,000.  It will be remembered that Munroe  & Munroe were the promocors of the  old Montreal & Boundary Creek Mining Co., of the M. & B. Copper  Co., and of its successor, the Montreal and Boston Consolidated Mining  & Smelting Co. The assets of the latter were taken over by the Dominion  Copper Co. last year. It was in making a deal for a lot of Montreal and  Boston Consolidated stock that Mr.  Miller claims deceit and fraud, and for  which Mr. Munroe was arrested in the  American metropolis. An action has  been brought to recover the $25,000  by Mr. Miller.  George H. Munroe has made a public statement of his side of the case.  After reciting the story of the deal, he  says that his firm had an unsettled  claim of $19,000 against the old Montreal & Boston Copper Co., for which  suit had been entered against the company in British Columbia, and that he  had been informed by attorneys that,  unless this suit was withdrawn, Warner  Miller would start suit for his claim of  $25,000, and a civil order of arrest secured, with the object of inquring the  firm's credit in New York and elswhere.  This is evidently what has been  done.  It appears that the two cases will be  fought out to the bitter end in the  courts.  A meeting of the newly appointed  board of city police commissioners was  held Thursday evening in the Butte  hotel, and Chas. H. Flood was reappointed as chief of police, to take  effect next Monday. ' The full board  was present, including Mayor Rum-  berger, Aldermen M. H. Kane and  William X. McDonald. The matter  was discussed by the commissioners,  and it was found that, while many objected to the appointment, a larger  number had requested that it be made  Commissioner McLonald made the  motion and it was seconded by Commissioner Kane and carried.'  Mr.Flood will be on dutyat night.and  it is the intention to have ;Mr. Dock-  sleader, the present chief,, and who  has been such since last summer, serve  in the day time, also looking after the  sanitary conditions of the city and perhaps the fire department.  Mr. Flood was chief of police here  several years, following Dou��aId McMillan in that position. About two  years ago there was a ruction in the  police department, growing out of the  charges made against Mr. Flood in  connection with his actions below the  dead line. For months there was  trouble, and the people were divided  on the subject. The government sent  a commission from Victoria to inquire  into the matter, and that was practically the end of it. Mr. Flood retained his position till last Tutyi when  he resigned as chief of police and  went to work in the mines, his assistant, W. H.'Docksteader, then taking  his position.  Funeral of Jamei H. Trcrorrow.  1 he funeral of James H. Trevorrow,  who died in Los Angeles last week,  was held from the family residence in  Rossiand this week Wednesday The  remains were accompanied from Los  Angeles by Albert H. Goodell, smelter  superintendent for the LeRoi company,  for which Mr, Trevorrow was mine  superintendent after leaving Phoonix.  The funeral was in charge of Corinthian Lodge No. 27, A.F. & A.M.,  the entire lodge turning out to attend.  Three members of King Edward Lodge  No. 36, of Phoenix, of which Mr. Trevorrow had alwcys been an active  member, went over to Rossiand to  attend the last sad obsequies, being  George H. McNicol, Frank Buckless  and Thomas Roderick. Among the  floral emblems was one from King  Edward lodge, sent from Spokane.  Challenge Accepted.  I hereby accept the challenge of  David Oxley to skate against me in a  ten lap race, $50 a side, same to take  place at Phoenix skating rink on the  evening of the Masquerade Carnival,  Friday, February 23rd.

It is said that he who hustles while  he waits stands the best chance of being eventually rewarded for his hustling and waiting. Regarding a mail  service to and from Phoenix ovei the  V., V. & E. extension of the Great  Northern, this has again been exemplified in a most satisfactory manner, as  last Monday, almost without previous  announcement, the new service was put  into effect.  Just about a year ago, as the Great  Northern was getting ready to start  passenger service to Phoenix, a petition  was sent by the Phoenix board of  Trade to the postmaster-general at Ottawa, asking him to give Phoenix the  mail service indicated, the petition being indorsed by Duncan Ross M. P.,  of Greenwood. For months the matter hung fire, and more red tape than  was thought to exist in the Dominion  was carefully and tediously unwound  and wound up again. In November  bids were finally asked for but the  mail was to be taken off the C. P. R.  entirely. This uncalled for idea was  promptly met by an unanimous protest  from the business interests of Phoenix,  which found effect in an$8 telegram to  the postmaster-general. Then there  was another long wait and not a word  of explanation till the service was put  into effect this week.  Business people generally are much  pleased at getting this accommodation,  which is only the same as Nelson,  Rossiand and Grand Forks have. For  the first time in the history of the  Boundary, mail from New York or  Montreal can be received here in four  days after being sent. To Vancouver  but two days are required���both of  which were unheard of in the past.  A depth of 115 feet has been obtained in the shaft being sunk at the  Last Chance.  The last car of ore shipped from the  Skylark mine was one of the best ever  sent out from that splendid property.  Diamond drilling has been going on  at the Granby mines for over eighteen  months. Boyles Brothers, the contractors, still have two machines at  work.  At the Rawhide the new electric  compressor, recently installed, is operating three drills in that property,  where considerable development is being done.  A fully equipped machine shop is  being erected by the Dominion Copper Co. at the Boundary Falls smelter,  besides additional ore bins. About  $6,000 worth of machinery has been  shipped for the new shop.  President Warner Miller, of the Dominion Copper Co., after looking over  the properties and smelter of the con  cern, left for Victoria last Saturday.  M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer,  went back to Salt Lake City, Utah,the  same day.  George A. McLeod, of Grand Forks,  on behalf of New York capitalists, has  bonded the Gloucester group of four  claims in McKinley camp for $90,000,  for a peried of two years. The sum of  $3,000 is to be paid May 1st, and the  balance at stated intervals. The bond  was given by Thomas Newby, Lee  Mercer and Howard Garnett, the  group being a most promising copper-  gold proposition. Development work  has been started.  PRIZES FOR THE  SKATING CARNIVAL  hugh Mcdonald  badly injured  In Accident  at   the Brooklyn  Mine.  Last week Hugh McDonald, as reported in the last issue of the Pioneer,  was crushed by a fall of rock at the  350 foot level of the Brooklyn mine,  the injuries proving more serious than  at first reported. Besides having a  leg broken, it was found at the hospital that the injuries internally were  such that an operation was necessary  and all this week the patient has been  in serious shape, but with hopes for his  recovery. Mr. McDonald's daughter,  Mrs. Gilbert, of Midway, and her husband, have been here this week to see  the patient.  The unfortunate man had been intending to leave for his ranch back in  the Northwest only a few days after  the accident occured, his family being  in that country.  Marlln-riall Wedding.  Wednesday evening a pretty wedding occurred at the Methodist church,  the contracting parties being Miss  Katherine Frances Marlin and Richard  Simonds Hall, before a large company  of friends. The 'officiating clergyman  was Rev.C.Wellesley Whittaker, pastor  of the church, of which both bride and  groom are members. The wedding  march was rendered by Mrs. F. Knott,  and the bride"came in leaning on the  arm of Hugh Reed, her brother-in-law.  M. C. Wade was best man and Miss  Maggie Marlin was bridesmaid, the  church being artistically decorated by  the Ladies' Aid.. About thirty guests  sat down to a wedding supper after  the ceremony at the residence of Mr.  Reed on Granby place. Mr. and Mrs.  Hall will leive Monday for London.  Ontario, where they expect to make  their home, Mr. Hall having been employed by the Granby Co. for the last  five years.  Figuring on Railway Spur.  Wednesday evening C. E. Cooley,  divisional engineer for the C.P.R.,  with headquarters at Nelson, accompanied by W. P. Tierney, of the same  place, arrived to spend a few days.  Mr. Tierney does considerable contracting for the C.P.R. in this section,  and it is'understood the engineers will  see about running a line to the Idaho  mine, so that the Dominion Copper  Co. can commence the shipment of  ore from that property. They were  accompanied by Larry Dolan, the  roadmaster of this division of the C.  P. R. No announcement has yet been  made in the matter. The logical outlet for the Idaho ore is over the Great  Northern, but that line does not connect as yet with the smelter at Boun-  dajy Falls, and the two companies do  not appear to care to divide this ton  na"e or deliver it to each other.

Not for the first or second time, nor,  we hope, for the last, do we take up our  pen to perform the pleasant duty of recording a yet greater advance on the  record of the previous years which our  contemporary, the Phoenix Pioneer,  gives evidence of in its annual Holiday  Number, published this month. It is  indeed a high standard of excellence  that is set by the Pioneer���so high that  one scarcely knows which to admire  most, the enterprise and ability of the  management which can produce such a  publication in a relatively small interior  mining town, or the loyal support of the  citizens of that town, which alone could  make so elaborate a production possible.  For the book is one to exci'e approving  comment, even were it issued in the big  towns of Europe or the Eastern States  or Provinces.  Emphatically, too, it is a book to send  away to these same far off centres of  weath and civilization. For it places in  the very best form the truth about our  undeveloped wealth before the eyes of  the organized wealth of the older communities. Numbering 68 pages, exclusive of the cover, filled with new and  attractive illustrations, and perfect in  stvle and get-up. it is a book which  every citizen, not merelv of the ricli  Boundary, but of the whole of this province, should secure a copy of, to send  away to his friends and give them some  idea of the El Dorado which is being  developed here.  Before closing tiiis brief appreciation,  there is one feature ot our contempoi-  ary's publication this year which we desire to especially commend. This feature is the maps, of which there are no  lets than five in the present Holiday  Number. New maps, as many a newspaper man knows to his sorrow, are hard  10 come by and expensive when you get  them. Yet there is no more valuable a  method of attracting attention to a district than carefully prepared maps. They  pave the way for the man who would  like to come into the country, who  would like to invest in tlie country, but  whose ignorance of its topography acts  as a deterrent. The reader of the publication now under review need labor  under no such disadvantage.  We again congratulate our contemporary, and advise any who may see these  lines to buy a Holiday Number of the  Phoenix Pioneer and send it East.  February  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

Following is the complete report, read  at  the city council  meeting last week,  from,  the  city  medical health  officers,  regarding the cause of  the late typhoid  fever outbreak here, together with  the  analyst's report on the samples of water  and milk submitted for examination:  Phoemix, B.C., 7th Feb., 1906.  To the Mayor and Aldermen,    .  City of Phoenix, B.C.  Gentlemen���We beg to report as  follows:  On Friday, December 15th, 1905, we  _were officially notified that we were appointed medical health officers for the  city of Phoenix, and as such at once  took such measures as we deemed sufficient to stamp out the epidemic of  typhoid which prevailed in the city.  Some time before this appointment was  received we, as medical practitioners,  notified the mayor and some of the aldermen that after mature consideration  and a careful study of affairs, that in our  opinion the medium of infection was  through   milk  coming ��� from   Mowat's | garbage.  J January,was.one of the best months  for business "experienced in-"Phoenix.-  There's; a reason���^Phoenix is where  the greatest mines in British Columbia  are-located.  -Whitewashing in the Valencia steamship, .disaster inquiry is now proceeding  apace. '������ But'"how������will' the'relatives of  the 132 souls that met a watery.grave  at.that-time like it ?  More than four thousand tons of ore  daily were ��� shipped ��� from Boundary  mines last week���and do not forget  that) over 3,000 tons of that ore came  from the mines "of Phoenix.  Conservatively-figured in advance,  Boundary's ore output for 1906 will  run.over a.million and a quarter tons,  or thirty'������per cent in excess of the  record for 1905. And. still we are  growing.    At last Phoenix has a mail service  over" the Great Northern railway, after  working for it nearly a year. Great  bodies move slowly, like the tremendous postoffice department of the Dominion, . but thty "get there" in due  time.    Prosperity is shining all over the  Boundary, and while every one is not  making a^ortune, the district generally  is in better shape than ever before in  its ��� history. Nearly 2,000 men are  employed in mining and smelting.here,  or in hauling the ore and supplies.  Joseph Martin, K.C., the man from  Manitoba���the gentleman who had  the whole province by the ears, as it  were, a few years ago, is credited with  the intention of opposing the retuni of  Hon, William Templeman from the  constituency of Victoria. And simply  because his brand of Liberalism is not  the same as that of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.  Incidentally, that ;s a good thing, no  doubt, for Sir Wilfrid. But Joseph  might better save his time and trouble.  Mr. Templeman will be returned and of the cityitself.  he should be���if he is  a  Grit.    And  dairy.. We also notified, at that: time,  everybody with whom we came in contact to take the precaution to boil the  milk and water. This precaution in a  large number of instances was promptly  taken, and in our opinion reduced to a  large extent the number of cases.  In all there were about seventy cases,  almost all appearing within twenty-one  days. Our first act on being officially  appointed was to close the Mowat dairy.  A public notice of warning was then  issued, instructing all to boil both milk  and water Mowat'8 dairy was then in  a pec ted and the following conditions  found to exist: The eldest son of the  family had been sick from the later part  of October, with, what we thought from  symptoms toKl us, undoubtedly a mild  attack of typhoid. A few days later this  was confirmed by personal examination.  The second youngest child also had the  disease. The boy during his attack was  employed about the dairy and milk  cans. Just why a physician was not  called is .beyond ��� our comprehension.  The children had been sent away before  our appointment; tne boy, however, returned, and after examination was sent  away again. The water used came  chiefly from Twin creek, which everybody knows is badly polluted. A well  was fouud also po luted and ordered  closed and filled.  The barns were also found in a shockingly ^bad londition, no drainage, no  flushing, improper ceilings, improper  and insufficient ventilation. Cattle unwashed, and milkman in ignorance as to  the necessity of' keeping his hands prepared, and . also ignorant of the proper,  correct and only safe method of preparing his cans anu strainers. There was  neither a milk room or cooling room.  Your health officers ordered Twin cieek  fenced off absolutely, now and forever to  be used for no purpose whatever; the  well was ordered filled. Barn floors and  walls flushed, ceilings canvassed and the  whole inside of the barn whitetvashed.  Drains- to be dug and planked, and in  future the inside of the barn to be looked  after properly. '1 he cattle scrubbed and  their udders ond teats attended to before  each milking. Hi; was shown how to  attend to the milkmen's hands and how  to prepare his tins. A cooling room was  built. The house itself was closed and  disinfected, with all clothing. The occupants were also put through a course.  In regard to the condition we found  existing in bis barns and milk cans, we  can only say that we consider it to be  due to extreme carelessness.  The dairy being outside the city limits, your officers then reported the  matter to the secretary of the Provincial  Board 01 Health, asking him to take  action, which he did, practically endorsing all that had been done, and promising to have it inspected in the future. ���  liannam's dairy was also inspected  and found in good order. Twin creek  here- was also ordered fenced off. Wuter  for this dairy was obtained from a well  which on analysis proved fair. Samples  of milk were taken during the epidemic  but spoiled in transit. The most important sample was loBt in transit to  Montreal. Samples of waterweie also  taken at the dairy and above it, from the  spring on the hillside above the dairy,  from Han nam's well, from the various  springs about the town, from Banner  soring and from Marshall lake. All  samples were sent to Montreal for i-.n-  alysis and a duplicate sent to Dr. Fagan  lit Victoria. Appended yon will find  the report on the analyses.  As unhealthy surroundings, though  incapable of causing typhoid fever without the germs, render infection easy bv  breaking down resistance to disease, we  have to report on the sanitary condition  methods which were then in vogue. A  sewage system was recommended and  its absolute necessity with increasing  population foreshadowed. With centralization of the resident* into larger  boarding and lodging houses, and the  increase in numbers, Phoenix has long  outgrown the old earth cesspit mode of  disposing of its liquid waste, and its  soil is now saturated in many places  with filth which natural processes have  been inadequate to purify.  While many have drunk milk infected  with typhoid", comparatively few��� have  contracted the disease. This is explainable by the fact that a large amount 01  infected material must be swallowed by  one living in healthy quarters before  typhoid bacilli can cause disease; but  one run down by unsanitary surround'  ings easily contracts it, and a virulent  tvpe is apt to develop.  ' We consider that this epidemic of  tvhoid was cauBed primarily by infected  milk, but the severe iype and the lar��e  number affected are due, in ; a large  part; to the. unsanitary condition of the  citv.  We have inspected all the public lodging and boarding houses as thoroughly  aH may be with most of "the places of  of the'earth" covered with snow. " We  find an "attempt at sanitary measures"  nearly everywhere, denoting a desire to  do the best they can, while in the dark  absolutely as to what is best. One oet  of lodging or boarding house keepers or  proprietors u.-e septi'.- tanks (probalilv  today the best known way of dealing  with*sewage outside of a general sewage  system). Another set use the old earth  cesspit, which to be euVciive n.ust not  be over four ami one-half feet deep and  and large enough never to. overflow.  Today our soil is too saturated with sewage to purify what had already gone into  it without additig fresh materia:. Others  again box up the sides of these cesspits  so that the sewage leaks through a layer  of soil so deep that it purifies nothing  and holds back in a contaminating condition everything but the liquid. Others  use small deep pits which act in the  same way as bexed-in cesspits. Othei s  use water closets which run off" even fecal  mat:er into cesspits Others pipe their  liquid waste direct into gutters along the  streets. Others throw all liquid waste-  on to the surface and let it look after itself. Such are the present methods of  handling liquids from kitchens, drys and  bedrooms.  As to garbage :  It is usually, placed in vessels to be  carried awaymore or lees regularly by  such people as require it for feed. It is  olten scattered broadcast over the premises���and the snow covers a multitude  of sins in: this respect. Tin cans from  which the food has been taken lie about  many of the places, and what is ieft in  them tuniB to poison.  As to nightaoil:  We find most places well enough  looked after, but in some places- the  privies are foul and in other places they  adjoin meat houses or kitchens 10 which  infections of almost all sorts-may be  sprea-.i in summer by-flies alternately  feeding off fecal matter and human  food.  All springs and creeks in the city are  contaminated and should not be used in  food unless boiled, and, preferably not  then. Theonly water fit for general use  is Marshall lake water, despite its odor  and taste, which perhaps can be  remedied.  We recommend that a day., scavenger  be licensed under section thirty-two and  the following sections of the City of  Phoenix Health By-law, as in this way  it will be a comparatively simple matter  to fix responsibility for pollution with  The present by-law, though  PROVINCIAL.

Gentlemen���I have completed the bacteri  ologlcal examination of the twelve samples of  water anrt two of milk, rtcehed from Phoenix,  B.C., on the 3d Inst.  Both samples of milk were curdled, and  contained free lactic acid. The whey from  each earn pis was examined for '��� B. Ty phoaua,  with negative results. 1 succeeded, however,  in isolating B. Coli and Strep, icidi Lactic  from liannam's milk, and B. Coli, B. Lactls  Aerogenes and Strep. Acidi Laetlcl from Mow-  att'a milk. The presence of B. coli in the milk  samples does not necessarily denote admixture  ��lth po.luted water. Contamination of milk  with dejecta from cows is the most frequent  c .use of the presence of intestinal organisms.  The twelve samples of water were also examined for 1).Typhosus. 160 c.c.of each sample  were treated wiih a sterl.ized 10 i-er cent aque-  ouc solution of potasilum alum, in the piopor-  lion of 0.5 gramme to the litre. After precipitation, the water was shaken well, and a measured quantity coutrlfugalized for 15 minutes.  The clear, supernatant water having been  syphoned oil', the sediment was removed with  a- tterile pipette, and plates were prepared  with DrigBliki-conradi's medium. These were  inculiated at 39��c. for 48 hours. All colonies  suspected of being B.Typhosus colonies, owing  to their not fermentlpg the lactose in the medium, were tested with serum, rich In typhold-  agglutinln, in a dilution of 1 in 100, and examined in hanging drops, iu the course of thii  investigation, many colonies were so treated,  and although Incomplete clumping was observed in some cases, the doubtful colonies  proved on further examination by cultures to  be colonies of B.Uoli. in view of.the time  which had elapsed between the collection of  the samples and their examination, and of the  richness of many of the samples in Intestinal  organisms, failure to isolate B.Typhosus from  any of the samples was not surprising.  1 have examined the samples for Intestinal  organisms, with-the following results:  Twi.i creek water ( B.Coll.

B coli was not found in the  other samples examined.  The number of bacilli must have increased  greatly during the transportation of the  samples; for that reason I do not lay much  stress on the count of organisms per c c. of  each sample.  The largest number of germs was found In  water from spring near Central hotel, 26,000 ]>or  I c.c. The pmalleat number In the lake wator,  3,260 per c.c. D. Deane's spring, 15,H0 per c.c.

Perusna  Cures  Catarrh  Wherever  Located.  There should be just one ~ question  asked of  the .Cascade people iri'this  matter.    Why did   they not do some  thing like they now claim they are-prer.;  pared to do to supply power, by means  of an auxilliary steam plant  for use at  period,? of- 1��*> water in Kettle river,  ;when��they ��were- asked' a -year < ago* if  they would take any steps'to: care for  the present and increasing demand for  power in the Boundary?    T^ey. practically  turned  a  deaf ear to all such  queries, and gave no satisfaction whatever to the big ^users bf_ power   here."  This  is a  fact,   and it cannot be got,  around by any sophistry.     And theri,  did.they expect the mining ajid smcltr  ing industry to await until  triey awalcV  ened from their Rip Van Winkle sleep  before   steps   for   enlargement   were  taken *by    the    smelting 'concerns?  Surely, that would not be reasonable.  Sp, power was contracted for from the  next most available source-^-Bpnnihg;  ton Falls.  We are told that if the extension is  granted; it will wipeout the;half million investment of" the Cascade concern. We hope not, and do not think  so. There will, in time,- be demand  lor all the power both concerns can  deliver in the Boundary, just as there  will be all the business that both railways can handle here comfortably.  But, if the Cascade owners think they  caa stand in the path of progress successfully; they will undoubtedly find  that the legislators at Victoria will not  agree with them���and they should  not. Vested interests should not be  wiped out, nor should vested interests  stand in the'way of Boundary.expansion.  . Pe-rrt-na a necessity La the Home.  ���J.   B.

Mr. Fred Schnell Lakeview, Erie Co.,  N. Y., writes:  " I had been a sufferer for more than  thirty years with catarrh of the Intestines. I had used a great deal of medi  cine to no avail, bo 1 decided to try  Peruna.  "/ have now used thirteen bottles  and can give you the Joyful tidings that  ��� I have no more trouble. I always keep  Peruna on hand."���Fred. Schnell.  The people generally are very much  misinformed as to the nature of catarrh.  Catarrh Is usually believed to be confined to the head, nose and throat. Latterly we sometimes hear of oatarrh of  'the stomach and catarrh of the bladder.  Seldom, if ever, do wo hear of catarrh of  any other organs.  It is not because these organs are not  subject to catarrh, nor that catarrh of  these organs is not a very common disease, but simply because it is not generally known that affections of these  organs may be due to catarrh,   Had Catarrh Thirty Years,���Pe-ru-na  Cured Him.  Mr. Gustav M. Schmidt, Spring Valley,  111., WTlteB!  " I had catarrh of the head and throat  for over thirty years. It became worse  every year.  "About three months ago 1 com menoed  to take Peruna and Manalin, and now I  am entirely cured of that troublesome  sickness. Your medicine is surely a  blessing to mankind.  " You can truly say that you have not  lived in vain,.Doctor, and J thank you  for the good you have done me. May  you enjoy along life to help suffering  humanity."���Gustav M. Schmidt.  Dr. Hartman Hakes Personal Use of  Pe-ru-na,  In speaking of his own personal use  of Peruna, Dr. Hartman says: ���'  "For a number of years my professional duties have compelled me to be  much on the road, traveling long distances by rail, night and day, exposed  to all kinds of vicissitudes, sleeping and  eating in different hotels continually,  and through it all I have preserved myself from any derangement of the body  resulting from catching cold.  "At the slightest evidence of a cold, a  few doses of Peruna Invariably checked  it."  Mr. Henry Schroeder, Route 2, Napoleon, O., writes:  '���I suffered for almost ten years with catarrh of the stomach aad all  doctoring was of no avail.  ���I took nine bottles of Peru ma and two ot Manalin and am now entirely  cured.  "1 recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this disease.  It Is my household friend. "������Henry Schroeder.  A Farmer's Talk to Farmers.  Before Dr. Hartman began ihe study  of medicine he was a farmer boy He  was brought up on a farm in Southern  Pennsylvania.  Ho belonged to that industrial, successful class of farmers known as the  Pennsylvania Dutch, the best farmers  in tne world.  It was here that ne early learned the  lesson of pulling obnoxious things out  by the roots.  diseases, believing th a t obnoxious symptoms would disappear if the cause of the  disease was removed.  In other words, Dr. Hartman applied the common sense ot the practical  farmer to medicine, and after much  experimentation Peruna was compounded.  The sensible farmer does not think o'  cutting off the tops of weeds to kill  them.   Ho polls-them up by the roots.  Dr. Hartman Interested in Farming-  Dr.  Hartman's^ Method  of Treating     Notwithstanding Dr. Hartman's busy  professional career, he still continues to  be interested  in  farming.   He is  the  Catarrh.  Naturally, when he began the study  of medicine his mind turned instinctive  ly toward the removing of causes. He  could not content himself with doctoring symptoms any more than his enterprising father could have contented  himself by pulling off the tops of weeds  to eradicate them from the soil.  The Doctor turned his attention early  to the science of removing the cause of  owner and manager of one of the largest  farms in the State of Ohio, with several  thousand acres of the best tilled land in  the Middle West, and with hundreds of  the best blooded percheron horses ever  imported or raised in this country.  Dr. Hartman relies upon Peruna entirely in case of oickaeas is his own  family.  At Work on the Farm.���.Praises  Pe-ru-na.  Geo. H. Thompson, Kalelgh, Hlatk,  writes 1  " I have been oured ot catarrh by your  medicines, Peruna, and Manalin. I had  been affected with catarrh of the  stomach about all my life, and was  taken bad every spring and summer.  ���' I used several kinds of patent medi-  omee, but they did me no good. I then  took a treatment under an M. D., which  did me but little good. By this time I  had got where I could eat nothing but  a little soup. I had severe pains, had  lost in weight and could not do anything.  'I began, taking your . medicines,  Peruna and Manalin. I then -weighed  126 pounds, but after taking IT bottles  of Peruna and one bottle of Manalin, I  weighed 166 pounds.  ������1 am now at work on the farm and  fetl well all of the time. I eat all 1  want to and my Mends say that I look  better than ever before. I will ever  praise Peruna for Its healing power."  Qeo. H. Thompson.
