Generally a  Most  Optimistic  Feeling Prevails.  Taking everything into consideration the year 1905 has been a fairly  prosperous one in the Boundary country. While there has been nothing  whatever of the boom element in the  district, theie has been a gradual  growth, dut the more permanent footing on which the mining industry is  being placed in this ?ection year by  year. It fact, it has now been reduced to what is equivalent to a manufacturing business���the manufacture of  copper bars from the mineralized rocks  found so plenteously in our hills. It  is merely a question of large capital  and the handling of immense quantities of low grade copper bearing rock,  of which there are millions of tons exposed and developed in mines now  being worked. This is evidenced by  the increasing scale on which the three  large companies, lhe Granby, B. C.  Copper and Dominion Copper, are  either now working or are preparing  to work.  Referring more'particularly to the  various settlements in the Boundary,  and their progress, it is noted that  theie has generally been a forward  movement throughout this section.  draad Forks.  Grand Forks as a city had experiences with booms in the past, and has  emerged frorrj these various times of  greater or less" excitement with one of  the best little cities in the province.  Its great stand-by is the Granly  smelter, which, with its eight blast furnaces, is the largest concern of the  kind in the Dominion, and likely lobe  larger in the near future. Not only  this, but the optimistic people at the  Forks think they hays good cause for-  believing that when the Dominion  Copper Co. are ready to construct new  smelting works, they will be located  close to the Forks, making a large addition to the smelter payroll.  In the year 1905 business has gotten  d.iwn to a l>eut-r and more substantial  basii man beiore, and every business  man there is undoubtedly doing fairly  well. The citizens feel proud of their  school system and building, and well  they may, for they have the largest and  best building in the Boundary, of  brick, and the only high school in this  district.  Year by year the agricultural possibilities of the Kettle river valley in the  vicinity of (Jrand Forks are becoming  more and more developed, being a  source of stability well worth while to  the town. This last year many of the  large holdings have been cut up into  small farms, and farmers from Manitoba are taking hold and doing well,  as far as reported.  Orceawooi'.  Located as it is, in the midst of  some twenty or thirty high grade  mines, to say nothing of the many low  grade properties, Greenwood has con  tinued to steadily lorge ahead with  each year, though the time of quick  and unhealthy growth has passed. The  high grade mines have done wonders  for Greenwood, and have kept a steady  payroll in the town that has been acceptable to all classes.  With the Mother Lode located but  four miles away, and the B, C. Copper  Co. smelter on the edge of the city  limits, with the Dominion Copper Co.'s  smelter but four miles dowri Boundary  creek, Greenwood has a vood foundation, and one that willmakeit still more  important place in the future. Its  civic bonded indebtedness has been  steadily reduced each year, and it has  a class of citizens that stand loyally up  for the place. With the Great Nor  them building up Boundary creek  from Midway this year, as anticipated,  so that the two smelteis mentioned can  be reached, Greenwood will have still  greater prosperity, especially since the  recent announcement, definitely, ol  the enlargemeut of the B. C. Copper  Co.'s smelter.  Pbocnlx lhe Payroll City.  To a large e\tent the othes places  in the Boundary depend on the ores  Irom Phoenix caihp to oprerate the  several Boundary smelters. If it were  not for these mines, some of the towns  would hardly be on the map. It follows consequently, that I'hoenix is the  most important mining camp in the  Boundary���and is likely to retain that  distinction for a long time to come.  More ore is shipped from this camp  than any other in the Dominion 01  Canada���over 3,000 tons daily���which  will be materially increased during this,  month of January when the Boundarv  Kails smelter blows in its second  furnace.  The year 1905 has been a fairly  prosperous one in Phoenix. The  Granby mines have worked steadily,  an  d for the last few  months   the Do-fiShallenberger are the chief owners  minion Copper Co. mines have done  likewise, and both properties are likely  to increase forces somewhat. It is a  steady, month by month payroll, ol  something like $50,000, more or le ss,  each thirty days.  During the last year there have been  several substantial public improvements  in Phoenix.    The Miners' Union nave  built an opera house  and   hall,   three  stories, which   when   completed,   will  cost about $15,000���a building that  is a credit alike to the  union  and   to  the city itself.    The city hall has been  erected at an approximate cost of some  $6,ooo, being the first home of its own  that the  city   government   ever   had.  The     new     Hotel     Brooklyn      has  been built at a cost when finished and  furnished of  about   $20,000.    These  things indicate the faith of the the   residents of Phoenix in its future. While  perhaps not the   largest   town   in   the  Boundary, the   future  of   Phoenix   is  certainly as bright as any of the others.  Midway.  Midway is the oldest   town   in   the  Boundary, but for several   years   after  the completion of the C. P. R.'s Columbia & Western   branch   to   that  town,  the place was quiescent.      It   has  a  beautiful   site,   almost as   level   as a  board, and cannot fail to be a place of  importance.    In 1905 there was much  d ing in the way of. railway   building  west from Midway, giving the place an  added importance.    The Great Northern's V.,V. & E. extension was started  from there and now  there   are   about  2,000 men at work building   that  railway   into    the  Similkameen   district.  The Midway & Verrion built ten miles  of its   grade,   and   this   year  will   undoubtedly complete the line 150 miles  to Vernon, in the  heart   of  the   rich  Okanogan Lake   district.    Indications  are not lacking, too, that the C. P. R.  will this year continue its line on   into  the Similkameen in its race   with   the  Great Northern. Thus Midway, which  has grown wonderfully   the   last   year,  bids fair to hold its own and grow still  more.  Among other Boundary towns of  some importance may be mentioned  Eholt, the C. 1'. R. i^ilway headquarters for this district. Cascade, once  a booming camp, is jogging along  quietly, with a few residents. Boundary Falls has renewed life from the  starling of the Dominion Copper Co.'s  smelter therp, and .generally . through  the Boundary there is a healthy, optimistic feeling that has a good basis,  and augurs well f.-r the future of this  section.  $3,269,4��lN  ORE VALUES  Estimated on Granby Output  for i905  Based  on   how   Average  $b Per Ton  of  For the year 1905 corrected returns  show that exactly 653,889 dry tons of  ore were shipped trom the Granby  mines to the Granby smelter, which is  an increase of not quite 20 per cent  over the output of these mines for the  year 1904, when the shipments were  549,703 tons���a difference of 104,186  tons in lavor of 1905.      >  With the present high price of copper, it is not thought that $5 per ton  is a high figure for this ore, in the absence of official values, which would  give a total valuation of Granby ore  shipped in 1905 of $3,269,445.  The month of December shows the  heaviest of all the twelve in the tonnage sent out, being 78,101 tons, the  eight blast furnaces at the company's  smelter beinu in commission most of  the month. In order tosh<.w the tonnage month by month, the following  official figures are given :  Dry tons  January    4��i45��  February    40,822  March    55-798  April    49>634  May    55>42o  June      5��>987  July    54��32o  August    37.524  September    5zi63��  October    7��>957  November    67,246  December        78,101  1905 total 653,889  Boundary Mining Notes  An  that a  group  unconfirmed   report is   current  deal is on   for   the   Pathfinder  North Fork of Kettle river, on  a basis of $1,000,000.  The Crescent Mines, Ltd., is the  title of a new corporation being form  ed to take over and operate the well  known Crescent mine in Skylark camp.  The company will have a million one  dollar shares, and has a well thought  of high grade property. Col. T. I.  Dickason, of Chicago, and   Harry II  21 MILLIONS  IN YEAR 1905  Mineral Production of British  Columbia.  HOLIDAY NUMBER  OF THE PIONEER  Notable  Advance Over   Previous Year.  The mini'ials produced in the whole  of British Columbia in 1905 reached a  value nf $21,000,000, or about  $2,000,000 in advance of 1904, according to figures compiled by E.  Jacobs. Of course, the value ofthe  output of the last two or three weeks  tan only be 'estimated, and the actual  returns may be slightly greater or less  than the amount set down for them.  The values of the metals produced are  approximately as follows :  Gold     $ 5,750,000  Silver      2,050,000  Copper      5,450,000  Lead      2,370,000  Zinc         320,000  Total '. .$15,940,000  The non-metallic minerals are thus  estimated :  Coal $3,090,000  Coke       1,220,000  UuildiiiK  material,  etc....      750,000  Total.   .    $5,060,000  Uy districts the production was as  follows :  Cariboo.     $   460,000  Cassiar        563,500  East Kootenay    4,427,500  West Kooten.iy    5,706,000  Lillooet            30,000  Vale    5,651,500  Coast    2,874,500  Miscellaneous       750,000  East Kootenay shows an increase of  about $1,700,000, and Yale of about  $1,500,000 over 1904. West Kootenay declined about $t00,000, and the  coast districts about $1,300,000 as  compared with the previous year. The  decrease at the coast-was largely due  to th<; Nanainio coal-mines, strike and  the suspension of mining at Mount  Sicker. East Kootenay's increase  would have been substantially larger  had the St. Eugene not been hindered  by fne, which destroyed its shaft house.  The yield of placer gold in the northern distiicts was kept down by the lack  of water, caused by the light snowfall  of last winter. The decrease in placer  gold was more than made up by the  greater output of lode gold, netting an  advance of about $60,000 in the total.  Copper, silver and lead were all increased, while zinc last year made its  first appeaiance as a substantial contributor to the total. The increases  over 1904 were approximately :  Gold $ 60,000  Silver    330,000  Lead 950,000  Copper    860,000  Zinc    320,000  Coal decreased $570,000 and coke  $18,000. Vancouver island collieries  produced 690,200 tons of coal and the  Crow's Nest colleries 746,100 to'.s, a  total of 1,436,300 tons, of which 403,-  900 tons were converted into coke.  Winners of Carnival Prizes.  New Year's night the skating rink  was crowded with those who came to  attend the fancy dress carnival, and a  good time was had. The following is  the list of those who were awarded  prizes :  Best lady's costume, Agnes Pierce;  best gentleman's costume, Palmer  Cook; best girl's costume, Lavina  Moser; best lioy's costume, George  Heiderman; best representative of any  character, Mrs. V. G. Younghusband;  best comic costume, A. E. II. Clark;  best lady skater, Mis. V. McDougall;  best gentleman skater, Palmer Cook;  men's three mile race, George Duniap;  boys' race under 16, Walter McKel-  vey; boys' race under 12, Eddie Swanson; consolation race, David Oxley.  The judges were Angus McDonald,  I). Nicholson and Dau Matheson.  Short Course for Minlnz Men.  Prof. Milnor Roberts, dean of the  School of Mines, at the University of  the State ol Washington, Seattle, was  a visitor here Thuisday, and look a  look at the big mines, with the intention of returning later and spending a  week here. The professor states that  the short course for mining men in the  school of mines commences January  9th and lasts three months, and there  is no charge for tuition. In the  laboratory couises there is a fee in  each subject and a deposit to cover  materials used. The studies are  Geology, Mineralogy, Assaying, Chemistry, Mining and Milling, and the  mining laws of the United States, British Columbia and Alaska. The assay  and chemistry laboratories are well  equipped and a samp mill and con-  cenirating plant are beinu installed.  Latest I'rices in Metals.

Since the' publication ol the Holiday  Number of the Pioneer last week, a  constant stream of copies has been deposited in the post office for transmission thiough the mails. On every  side the opinion expressed regarding  the number is mos^ favorable, and  shows thiil.there is a demand for just  such a number.  From the time the last form was off  the press the entiie Pioneer force has  been kept more than busy binding up  the copies lor which theie is such an  extensive demand, and H has been  difficult to keep up with the calls for  them. The calls came from every  town in the Boundary and outside of  this section. Thee.ition printed was  4,500 copies, which it is thought will  answer the demand.  Six people have been busy in the  Pioneer office on this number for several weeks, the entire printing and  mechanical work having been done in  Phoenix.  EIGHT HOURS  ALL AROUND  At Boundary's Three Smelting Works.  B.  C. and Dominion Arranged it This Week.  Earthquake Shock Felt la Phoenix.  Tuesday morning about six o'clock  residents of Phoenix were awakened  by a distinct eatthquake shock, which  lasted about 30 seconds. The oscillation was accompanied by a loud  rumbling sound, and many did not  at first know what had happened,  thinkingitmighlbe an explosion of some  kind. Pictures were shaken from walls  and in some cases crockery knocked  from shelves,' but no more serious  damage was done, as far as learned.  People lushed from their beds and  from their houses to discover what had  caused the trouble.  Supi. Smith, of the Granby mines,  had the properties examined at on^e  tu be certain tlta- no damage had bc.-n  done, and nothing serious was found,  though such shakes are not welcomed  in a mining district, as a rule.  The shock was felt in Greenwood,  Eholt, Grand Forks, Nelson, Rossland,  Kamloops, and on down south as far  as Spokane. -. As far as can be learned  it is the first shock of earthquake that  has visited-this section in many-years,  and no one is hoping for a recurrence  of it.  Qraod Ball by Miners' Union.  Next week Friday, January 12th, is  the date set by Phoenix Miners' Union  No. 8 for the grand opening ball in the  ballroom of the new hall, and guests  are expected from all parts of the  Boundary. Workmen are exceedingly  busy getting the hall in shape, and it  will be all readv for the auspicious  event. Albin's full orchestra will fui-  nish the music, which is a guarantee  of tts excellence, the new Mason &  Risch piano also being used for the  first time. The committees appointed  are as follows :  Receptton���A. S. Thurber, James  Harris, W. X. McDonald, Francis  Knott, W. M. Searle, Arthur Jacobs,  Caot. George Smith, David Nicholson,  G. W.

January rst the Nelson Daily News  published a twenty page edition, being  a review of the mining progress of the  province for the past year. It was  undoubtedly the best issue of the kind  ever issued by that paper, which makes  this an annual event. It contained  many illustrations, and the matter was  written up in a careful and painstaking  way, which reflected much credit on  Editor Deane and his capable staff.  Few persons outside of a newspaper  office realize what such an issue means  to those who compile it, especially in  the office of a small daily or weekly.  Weeks of unceasing toil and research  are requited before the writing itself  is done. Anyone really interested in  the mining industry of British Columbia should secure a copy of this New  Year's Number, which can be had at  ten cents each. It is a veritable mine  of information, and worth preserving.  Eight hour shifts now prevail in all  three of the Boundary smelters, an  agreement having been arrived at  Thursday about midnight between the  employees and the management of the  British Columbia Copper Co.'s smelter  at Greenwood and and that of the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter at Boundary Falls. The eight hour system,  instead of the twelve hour, was adopted at the Granby smelter in December  last.  During the pendency of the negotiations no smelting was dune this  week at either of the Boundary creek  smelters, and most of the men were  laid off at the mines of the companies affected, until matters were adjusted.  Last Sunday a notice was posted in  each of the smelters announcing the  new scale for eight hour shifts. The  men asked for the old schedule of  twelve hours pay for the eight hour  shut Then a number of meetings  were held between the company officials and committees of the men,  which resulted Thursday in an agreement being reached satisfactory to all.  The new scale is practically the same  as that in force at the Granby smelter,  as far as the work is the same.  Details nf the Scale.  Coke and charge wheelers will receive $2.70 for eight hours, against $3  for 12 hours, as formerly. Tappers  and pot dumpers will receive $3 per  eight hours, and an adjustment was  also arrived "at regarding the samplers  and converter mem  Throughout the negotiations the  utmost good will prevailed between  employers and employees, and not a  little credit is said to be due to Geo.  R. Naden, mayor of Greenwood, for  his good offices in the matter. Several  committees were appointed on behalf  of the men, and for the companies,  Frederic Keffer, consulting engineer of  the British Columbia Copper Co.,  acted in place of J. E. -McAllister,  manager, who is confined to his bed.  For the Dominion Copper Co., Resident Manager T. R. Drummond and  W. C. Thomas, the smelter superintendent, acted.  By tonight it is expected that both  smelters will be in full operation once  more, on the eight hour basis, the  British Columbia Copper Co. with two  furnaces and the Dominion Copper  Co. with one furnace, the second to  be blown in in a few days. About  150 men are employed now at the two  smelters, and as many more were idle  at the mines of the two companies  while the negotiations were pending.  The result is a source of the greatest  satisfaction to the people of the district, as well as to the companies and  men themselves. This matter, which  has been hanging fire for months, is  now settled to the satisfaction of all.  Ore Shipments for 1906  This week the ore shipment returns  are only made for the year 1906���a  few days, and not a full week. They  are also smaller than usual because of  the stoppage of operations at the British Columbia Copper Co. and Dominion Copper Co. mines and smelters  while the new eight hour schedule at  the two smelters was being arranged.

Opposition  Likes to  Bark.  Every once in a while the ii'n.'i  Liberal papers in this province b'cak  out in a sort of frenzy against Premiei  McBride, who has. made such a success of "the first Conservative government that British Columbia eve had."  Metaphorically speaking, they both  and foam and make futile endeavors  to discount the excellent work done by  the McBride government in placing  the province on a belter financial fooling, They assert that the improved  conditions aie 1:01 due to Mr. Mc  Bride's policy, but 'o the general improvement in all industries, inespective  of the government.  These same critics slviii to I irge:  that the same thing would apply to the  Liberal rule of Premier Laurier at Ottawa, and that the Dominion has never  been so prosperous as under his control  of affairs And yet, with the prosperity  pervading the Dominion from end to  end, there is scarcely p Grit but that  will allege that it is all, or nearly all,  due to the beneficent policy of Sir  Wilfrid. To be honest, thev must admit that what is sauce for the goose is  sauce for the gander, and that Premier  McBride has done more than any pio-  vincial government has for many years  before him.  When Mr. "McBiide returned recently from a trip to Ottawa, the Liberal  writers proceeded to nuike all manner  of fun regarding the objects of his nip.  Some at Vancouver and elsewhere even  went so far as to stale lhat he had  made a bargain to hand the province  over to the C.P.R.at the next session,  as far as railway subsidies are concerned, forgetting entirely, or conveni  ently overlooking the experiences of  the last session, when the subsidy hunters went away sorrowfully and empty-  handed.  While the opposition poiiu'cijns mnv  baik and snap at the heels of Mr. McBiide, and tell about his "glad "hand,''  etc., they know in their hearts that he  is stionger today than ever bel'oie, it  being the direct result of his business  like administration. Even a hidebound Giif, who must needs howl  about something that the Conservatives  aie doing, in order to show his party  loyal:,, must acknowledge this much,  if he is honest.  \ STRICTLY BUSINESS  The postoffice department of Canada  has put its ban on enlarged or special  issues of newspapers published in this  broad Dominion, by raising the rate of  postage on such publications from one-  half cent per pound, the established  newspaper rate, to sight cents per  pound. That is to say, as an encouragement (?) to publishers to issue such  numbers for the benefit of lhe country,  the postoffice department is ehaiging  them SIXTEEN TIMES AS MUCH  AS FORMERLY. The order was  dated July 12th, 1905, and all publishers were notified. Application for  an explanation resulted in no satisfaction being given. The postmaster-  general, or his deputy, Dr. Coultei,  simply decided to place this heavy tax  on such numbers, and that is all there  is to it. As far as we know there is  no appeal whatever, except at the bar  of public opinion.  No' only is   this   a fact, but, where  one can puichase the bulkiest magazine  at any newsstand and mail it at 4 cents  per pound, a Holiday Number in  Canada must now pay double those  rates.  Again, any kind of an old paper, so  called, can be mailed all over Canada  from the United States for 4 cents pc  pound, but a   publisher   here   who   is  trying his best to build up the country,  and so also help himself, is taxed twice  as much on an enlarged edition, if   he  undertakes such a thing.  Under   date   of    December     17th,  1905, the department issued a supplementary   order   by   which   the   above!

Dr. Coulter did not propose to  leave any lo ipholes in his order.     He  also slated   that   such   numbers   were  not regarded   as periodicals at all, but  merely as piinted matter.

I  One week from Monday next is the  date set for nominations for mayor and  six councilmen for the ensuing year.  As yet there has scarcely been a ripple  on the surface to indicate anything  going on in the political pot, vastly  different from last year, it may be  noted. And yet the number who  tqok occasion to qualify as electors in  the last few days for registration, by  voluntarily seeking thu city clerk and  handing over two big cartwhee's, shows  that there is a decided interest in the  mutter. In case of a contest, probably  the lull vote will be brought out. At  present it is not easy to predict as to  whether there will be a contest.  ���10  The inlluetiee ol the I'ioneer is not  confined to I'hoenix, to the lioundary,  to British Columbia, nor even to Canada. Not long since we received a  letter of cheer from an appreciative  subscriber in Dawson, in the Yukon  More recently the mother of a yoinu  fellow lormerly emplo,ed here, wrote  from Lancashire, Enghntl, anxious to  learn of the boy's wlureab.'.'its. By  enqttirinn the information wasobiained,  and by this time tbe anxious mother  in the Old country has donhtless heard  from herson. A new-papet can sometimes be of use in "ways least expected,  and the utmost satisfaction may be  obtained by the publisher in cases  where no monetary consideration whatever is involved. ���  #������  A boy who swims may say he's  swum, but milk is skimmed and seldom  skum ; and nails you tiiin, 1 hey me  not trum When words you speak,  those words aie spoken ; bin a nose is  tweaked and can't be iwoken, and what  yon srek i.s never soken.

An exchange wisely says: Learn this  one thing; lea n it eaily in life and  learn it well, that a man who does not  believe as you do is not always a fool.  The fact that you hold views not in  accord with your neighbor is not proof  positive that you are light and that he  is wrong, nor is it any evidence  that your neighbor is insincere. If  this were not true, then all sufart men  would belong to 01 e parly and one  church. And if all belonged to one  paity and one church they would break  up both patty and chinch.  ���it  '���Did you ever h ippeu across Max  U'Ktll's definition of itu.k?'"

This N illustrated by lhe large amount of business  that such stores do all through the  we.st. For instance, we have, heard of  a man in I'hoenix who sent to Mon!-  gomery, Waid tV Co., of Chicago, for a  number of things, and had to pay duty  and transportation charges on them.  Perhaps he saved a few cents, but that  is 2 question. We have also known  of people who sent to Toronto for  shoes���of all things���and when they  did not (it, went to local stores in Phoenix to exchange them. Strange to say,  the local dealers were considerate  enough to make the change, too,  though they did not want the cheap  stuff from the east. It would seem  that the man who w..uld have the gall  to ask a local dealer to lo take such  goods and give good merchandise for  them, would be able to get along anywhere. Yes, the department store  habit is not easy to break off, any  more than the whiskey habit is.

Do You Want to Save $25 in Duty?  .   .Thru   huy the.  .  OLIVER  T YTE WRITER  Made in  Canada..  Anthony J. McMillan is a^ain managing director of the LeRoi Mining  Company of Rossland. Cable advices  from London announce the resignation  oftlie old board of directors, which  hud expelled Mr. McMillan from his  position, but was repudiated at the  recent meeting of the LeRoi stockholders in London.  While Mr. McMillan won out in the  recent meeting, yet the opposition to  him upon the directorate announced  its purpose of making an appeal to the  stockholders by calling for a formal  vote by ballot. The vole was to be  taken two weeks after the stockholders'  meeting, and i.s about due. While  particular; have not been received, it  is presumed lhat the result, ofthe poll,  if taken, was so overwhelmingly in  lavnr of Mr. McMillan that the old  board decided lo resign in his luvor.  Mr. McMillan made his fight on the  gro :nd that the company should continue the opeiation of its smelter at  Northport, and should not make an  amalgamation with the War Eagle,  the Centre Star and the St. Eugene  mines, and the Trail smelter. This  consolidation was fervently supported  liy his fellow directors, and when he  refused to join with them in the  scheme, they removed him from the  board.  Since then John A. Mackenzie has  been conducting the affairs of the  mine'. Under his orders the North-  port smelter has been closed. It is  expected that Mr. McMillan will endeavor to start it again and will throw  the ore there instead of sending it to  Tr.iil under a three year contract  made with that smeltei by the anti-  McMillan management. The Trail  people, however, will doubtless en  deavor to enforce the terms ofthe con  tract.  Route of V., V. & E.  A New Westminster dispatch'states  that President Hendry, of the Vancou  ver, Victoria & Eastern railway, has  announced lhat the new road will  cross the Hope mountains near Hope,  B.C., lollowing the FYaser liver down  to .Sumas, wheie an important railway  iciitci will be established, then along  the line of the old Vale road. The  n<.w line will go to Cloverdale and  connect with the Great Northern railway. It has long been the hope of the  People of Vancouver that the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern would cross  the l'raser neat Hope and connect  ��i h ltic Vancouv-r, New Westminster  & Yukon at the noith end of the  Squamish, but the present announcement downs all such hopes. The  country around Harrison lake is  lough, which has evidently proved the  objectionable feature.

When talking to strangers or visitors  11 is well lot a knocker to keep his  hammer out of sight and speak well of  .ill, no matter how small he may know  himself lo be. The man of average  intelligence knows that a knocker despises himself because he is despised  by others, and betrays it in his looks.  No man ever got rich by knocking  ot'ner people. Success can't come that  way. He will die unregretted and be  buried in a shroud of mortgages.  Whatever fault you ha\e to find with  \011r fellow townsman do it to his lace  iike a mm, but don't roar like a coward behind his back.��� Alberta Bulletin.  A Toast.  At an editorial convention in Kansas one of the country editors offered  the following toast :  "To save a newspaper man from  starvation, take his paper and pay him  lor it promptly. To save him from  bankruptcy advertise in his paper liberally. To save him from despair, send  him every item of news you can get  hold of. To save him from piofanity  write your correspondence plainly on  one side of the sheet and send it in as  early as possible. Dead people are  the only ones who never make mistakes. Newpaper readers would do  well to remember that there are no  perfect people���editors or readers.  "Swiped."  A crank came running into our office the other day, says a truthful ex-  channe, and said a man had swallowed  .1 two foot rule and was dying by  inches. I started out to learn the  particulars and met the doctor. The  physician said that was nothing, lhat  lie had a patient once who swallowed  a thermometer and died by degrees. A  couple of by standers chipped in, one  saying it reminded him of a fellow in  Texas who swallowed a revolver and  went off easy. The other said he had  a fiiend in Manitoba who drank a  quart of applejack and died in good  spirits.  MOST CREDITABLE  HOLIDAY ISSUES  Publishe.rs   of   Interior   Set a  Good Pace.  The publisheis of the intctioi thai  have issued special Holiday Numbers  this year have, as a rule, cxceid'-d all  previous efforts in this line���iiining  out the best numbers yet pubh-hed.  Without exception they are calculated  to du the comitiy generally a lot nf  good, and direct lavorable'attention 10  the localities specially repiesen'ei1. It  is unfortunate that at this juncitue the  postoffice depaitment should step in  and lay an embargo on such iwics,  charging sixteen times as much for  mailing them as for ordinary 1 uniiier^  of the different papers. No �������� nder  the publishers do not like it. Tiny  should put forth a concerted iff.Ht 10  have the ruling rescinded.  Cranbrook Herald Annual.  Residents in Cranbrook, from previous experience with Editor Simpson,  of liie Herald, were led to expect something pietly fine in the annua! whir h  he announced U.r this year, and they  could not have been disappointed  when it was laid before them. With  its cover in two colors, depicting the  industries of East Kootenay, us excellent half tones and full descriptive  mallei���the whole well gotten up and  well piinted���Mr. Simpson and the  holiness men of Cranbrook should  have no reason lo feel anythi-'g but  pioud of the- publication. It will go a  long distance, in the publicity line, inwards making that district much I'eiU't  known in the outside world, and tho^e  who read it cannot bu! have a favorable impression of Cranbiook and Easi  Kootenay in geneial. "Old Man"  Simpson is holding up his par e, all  right.  Fernie Free Press Souvenir.  The Fernie Free Press publisheis  have outstripped all rivals this year in  the de luxe edition of a souvenir which  they issued a few days ago. In ficl.  ii is so well done that many have an  idea that the work was performed in  some large eastern printing establishment, which is doubtless erroneous.  With several two-color plates, with  scores and scores of excellently printed  half-tone engravings, showing people,  buildings, residences and scenes in the  Coal City of East Kootenay, with  suitable descriplive matter to accompany the rest, the Free Press has done  a good piece of work, and one that few  newspapers in or out of the large cities  would care to undertake. They have  done the job well, and we hope the  heavy expense will all come back to  them, though it is doubtful.  "Mother Earth's Treasure Vaults."  Last summer Percy F. Godenrath  was thiough the lioundary, preparing  matter for a publication to be called  "Mother Earth's Treasure Vaults," to  refer to the lioundary, Okanagan and  Similkameen distiicts. The publication is now out and reflects credit not  only 011 that well-known newspaper  man, but on the publishers and printers, the Victoria Colonist. It has a  profusion of half-tones, beautifully  piinted, and the subject matter is  written in a breezy and interesting  manner that shows the familiarity ot  the author with his subjects. It is  well worth reading by anyone with the  slightest interest in the sections referred to.  Kootenay Mall.  The Kootenay Mail Publishing Co.  of Revelstoke sent out a Christinas  number, greatly enlarged oxer tlie  usual issues, lhat was fnll of scenes in  and around Revelstoke and vicinity.  It should prove a good advertisement  of that country, and one that will be  noticed wherever it sjoes.  Mr. Otto A.Flolssner, American Epicurean, late Chef to Col.W. J.Coady,  (oulfaloBill), now chef at the Kalnier Grand Hotel, Seattle, Wash., writes;  " I suffered with kidney and 61adder trouble until life did not uem  worth living. I had tried many medicines, but did not get any relief until I took Peruna. It was really wonderful how much better I  was after I had used this medicine only a week. I did not expect that it  would help me permanently, but as long as it was doing me good I con-  1 tinued to use it. At the end of six months I found to my relief that it  > had rid my system of all poisons, and that I war. cured to stay cured. You  ' certainly have a splendid medicine and I gladly endorse it"���Otto A-  I Fleissner.  Catarrh   of the   Kidneys  a  Common j Pe-ru-na Removes the Cause of tlie  Disease���Kidney Trouble Often  Falls to  Be  Regarded as  Catarrh by Physicians.  Catarrh of the kidneys is very common indeed. It is a pity that this fact  is not better known to the physicians as  ���well as to the people.  People have kidney disease. They  take some diuretic, hoping to get better.  They never once think of catarrh. Kidney disease and catarrh are seldom associated in the" minds of the people, and,  alas, they are not very often associated  in the minds of the  PE-RU-NA CURRS  CATARRH Of"  THE KIDNEYS.  physicians. Too  few physicians  recognize catarrh  of the kidneys. They doctor for something else. They try this remedy and  that remedy. The m,utile may bo catarrh all the time. A few bottles of Peruna wooJd vaze them.  Kidney Trouble.  Peruna strikes at the very centre of  the difficulty by eradicating the catarrh  from the kidneys. Catarrh is the c*os��  of kidney difficulty. .Remove tne cause  and you remove the effect. With unerring accuracy Peruna goes right to  tho spot. Tho kidneys are soon doing  their work with perfect regularity.  Thousands of Testimonials.  Tiiousands of testimonials from people  who have had kidney disease which had  gone beyond the control of the physician are received by Dr. Hartman every  year, giving Peruna the whole praise  for marvelous cures.
