The clerk was instructed to write the attorney-general  ������requesting him to confirm the council's  nomination as soon as possible.  Communications and applications  for the position of chief of police were  read from the following: John Mclnnis, M.L. A., re claim against the  city by John Harngan; from Bank of  Montreal asking the council's intention  regarding the notes held by the bank  against the city; applications for chief  of police from Wm.

The fourth general meeting' of the  members of the western branch of the  Canadian Mining , Institute will be  held at Greenwood on Monday next.  This meeting will be the annual  general, meeting for the election of  president and members of the council  of the branch for the.ensuing year. Thc  Pioneer is in receipt of the following  letter from E. Jacobs, secretary of the  western branch:  "It may interest some of your  readers to know, if you will be good  enough to mention j it in your next  issue, that the meeting of the Western  Branch of this Institute to be held in  Greenwood next week will be open to  others than members of the Institute.  We shall be glad to see at our meeting  any one sufficiently interested to  attend. The arrangements are in the  hands of the local ^members, out so  far as I have been able to gather from  Mr. Frederic Keffer; the proceedure  will be somewhat as;follows: Monday  afternoon (after arrival . of C. P. R.  train) opening of meeting; Monday  evening,, social gathering; Tuesday  morning, reading and discussion of  papers; Tuesday afternoon, visit to  mines and smelter.".  The council of the branch will include all western members of the  council ol the institute, ex officio, the  president, and secretary of the branch,  and twelve members to be elected by  ballot. With the Object of making  the incoming council as fully representative of the various parts of the  province as practicable the present  council has recommended that twelve  members to beelecte-d, be chosen from  those shown on the ballot paper (two  for Alberta and one each for the other  places named), which has been sent to  members. 4  Amone the business to be transacted will- be the consideration of a motion to provide for the inclusion as ex-  bfficio members of its'council the three  last chairmen of the branch, along the  lines adopted for the parent institute.  It is probable also that a recommendation will be adopted advocating that  a good disylay of minerals which will  effectively advertise.g'ge.districts concerned he sent to fnS"'A'/a'ska Yukon  Pacific exposition at Seattle.  All members of the institute in'good  standing residing in Western Canada  and the neighboring parts cf the  United States are, by virtue of such  membership, also members of the  Western branch.  Boundary Mining Notes  E. Jacobs, formerly of the Boundary,  has suspended the publication of the  B.C. Mining Record at Victoria.  The payroll at the Greenwood smelter was $14,000 greater during the past  six months than for any, previous six  months.  Development work at the B.C.  Copper company's Lone Star mine, in  Washington, have been suspended until  the spring.  The B.C. Copper company's smelter  treated 7,729 tons of ore this week,  as follows: Mother Lode, 7,074; Oro-  Denoro, 341;! other properties, 324.  There were no shipments from the  Snowshoe mine this week on account  of the Consolidated company's smelter  at Trail being partially .closed down  through lack of water.  It is expected the new tram line at  the Golden Eagle mine on the North  Fork will be in operation in the course  of a couple of months, the machinery  having arrived at the property. The  tram line will carry the pre from the  mine to the railway line.  The B.C. Copper company took advantage of the forced close-down last  week, through lack oCpower, to make  some necessary repairs to the smelter,  plant, thus obviating a close-down later  on. Only two of three furnaces have  been in commission during the past  week, but it is expected the full battery  will again be operating in a few days.  NEW AMBULANCE  FOR GRANBY MINES  Carriage for Conveying Injured  to Hospital Arrives.  Some time ago we mentioned that a  hospital ambulance was under order  for the Granby mines, Jay P. Graves,  the managing director of the company,  while in Phoenix some months ago,  having discussed the necessity of an  ambulance in connection with the hospital here, and stated that he would  place an order for one.  The ambulance arrived this week,  coming direct from Foulton & Walker's  factory, Philadelphia;,Pa. It is a very  handsome carriage, with two stretchers  and other general equipment; also provided with rubber tires for summer and  runners for winter. It is housed close  to the mine and will undoubtedly be  of valuable service in time of accidents.

The annual congregrational meeting  of St Andrew's Presbyterian church,  took place in the church on Thursday  evening, a cood number of adherants  ami members being present. The  secretary.treasurer presented his report,  showing the receipts for year 1 908 to  have been $1257.36, the expenditures  being $1257.36, and the balance on  hand $ 13 11. The Sunday school report showed $26.30 left in the treasury,  the expenditures during the year having been $72.70, including $15 to  missions; collections during tbe year  were $87.40. The Ladies' Aid society  have a membership of thirteen; seven  socials, five monthly teas, one sale of  work, and one play were held during  the year; total receipts were $384.15,  total expenditures $347 95, leaving  balance of $41,70. .Managers weri*  elected for the current year, and the  meeting concluded with a literary and  musical program, after which refreshments were served by ladies ofthe congregation.     _  Will Erect Meat Market.  W. Hillman, until recently traveller  for J. Y. Griffin & Co., arrived in  town this week and has gone into  partnership with Hugh Reed in the  meat and provision business.  A new meat market will shortly I e  erected for the firm on Knob Hill  avenue, jus west of their present store.  The new market will have corner location and will be built with cold  storage in connection. Tbe property  on which the new store will be erected  is owned by Thos. Hemmerlee ol  Greenwood.  Rossland's Winter Carnival.  Arrangements have been completed  for Rossland's twelfth annual winter  carnival, which will take place from  February 2nd to 6th. This annual  winter event has always been looked  forward to by sportsmen and others  in the interior, and the program completed by the citizens of Rossland for  the approaching carnival is even more  attractive than that of any of their  previous carnivals. The sports program includes: hockey for the championship of British Columbia; ski  jumping for the championship of Canada; snowshoe races, skating, tobogganing, curling bonspiel, horse races,  for which handsome trophies are offered as prizes. An effort is being made  to send a ioint hockey team from the  boundary intermediate teams. Special  transportation rates have been secured.  In an editorial dealing with the  Granby Consolidated, the Canadian  Mining Journal says: "The vigorous  and sanely constructive policy pursued  by Manager Hodges is an object lesson  to Canadian mine manacers. Those  who are familar with conditions in  southeastern British Columbia will  appreciate the vigilance and strength  with which the affairs of the Granby  Consolidated are adminstered."    ���*.  Fund For Earthquake Sufferers  To the good people of Phoenix:  Dear Friends:���I have just received  a communication trom my superiors in  which they request me to have a  collection taken up throughout the  Boundary in aid of the Italian earthquake sufferers. As you are aware,  half the population of Calabria and  the eastern part of Sicily are dead, and  the other half are weighted down by  miseries beyond description. Your  kind and generous contribution for  this worthy object mav be sent direct  to me, or deposited in my name in the  Eastern Townships Bank, and I will  see that they are immediately forwarded to tbe proper authorities. Yours  respectfully,  J. A. Bkdkad, 0. M. I.  Phoenix, Jan. iS,   1909.  C. P. R. Controls Wisconsin Central.  The transfer of the control of the  Wisconsin Centtal Railway took place  on Wednesday. The deal involved  between four and five million dollars,  the C.P.R. securing the controlling  interest.  It is understood that the Wisconsin  Central will hereafter be operated in  the interests of the Minneapolis St.  Paul & Soo road which is controlled  by the Canadian Pacific railway. The  Wisconsin Central runs from Chicago  to St. Paul and gives the Canadian  Pacific direct connection over its own  and subsidary lines between Chicago  aud Vancouver.  Starts for England  left Tuesday  John Wilson left Tuesday for Yorkshire, lingland, and will be accompanied on bis return, in the course of  a few months, by Mrs. Wilson and  family D  with him.  The contract for 450 feet of tunnelling on the Woodburn property of the  Phoenix Mining, Smelting and Development company has just been  completed. Some of the foremost  mining experts of the Boundary have  examined the showing and are very  enthusiastic oyer the prospects, and it  is Believed IneTuhnellihg'Ts "n'OW very  close to the main ore body. The company will hold a meeting next Friday  evening, at which a general report of  the receipts, expenditures and development work will be presented. It is  the intention of the company to let  another contract to continue the development.  P. F. Roosa, manager of the Do  minion Copper Company, was in camp  from Boundary Falls on Tuesday.  Mr. Roosa looks for ihe resumption of  the Dominion Copper properties within  the course of about six weeks. He had  no information to give concerning the  reorganization of the company, but  stated that the reorganizing,' which is  necessarily slow was going along satisfactorily. At the smelter all pipes  are being kept thawed out and a small  force of men are now employed making  repairs to the furnaces and putting  them in shape ready for resumption.  At the mines, locally, the pumps are  kept going with the usual staff and an  unofficial report states that Dominion  Copper will again be running full force  next month.  Many people well versed in mineralogy have been puzzled at the appear  ance of the Republic ore. It resembles  house plaster more than anything else,  and the gold, where it exists in metallic  form, is so fine that it can not be seen  by the naked eye. Then it occurs  again at a telluride. One body of pet-  zitu has been developed which gives  returns from grap samples of $5,400  to $6,000 a ton. The last car shipped  to the smelter at Grand Forks, B.C.,  yielded 65.28 a ton. Thete are thousands of tons ready to be broken down  that will go far in excess of $20, and as  the freight and treatment rate at Grand  Forks is $6.50 a ton and it is claimed  that tbe cost of mining will not exceed  75c a ton on an average, it can be seen  that there are some wonderful possi  bilities in this property.���Gazette.  Mlattreli PIm Big Trip.  Phoenix Royal Minstrels  are  planing for a big excursion to Grand Forks  in the near future.     It is proposed to  run a special train to the Forks on the  occasion ofthe next scheduled hockey  match between the teams  of Phoenix  andthat  city  at Grand Forks    The  game  will  commence about  four or  five o'clock, and the  Royal  Minstrels  will put on a show in the opera house  commencing at 8 p. m., which will be  followed by a dance for  which  the  excellent seven-piece minstrel orchestra  will furnish music.    The special  will  leave Phoenix about 3 p, m.  and  returning   would    leave   Grand  Forks  about 2 p. ro., giving local citizens an j  opportunity to  visit  our neighboring  city and  have a  real  enjoyable  time  and return the same night.    The date  has not yet been set, but will probably  take place  early  in   February  if the  arrangements can be made.    The hockey team will probably run  a  special  train whether the  minstrels   show  or  not.  RepftMIc Mlae Uoklaf Qm4.  The first carload of ore under the  new management of the Republic mine  has reached the Granby smelter. Developments at the mine has opened on  the No. 1 level an 16 inch body of ore  that averages $720 to the ton. This  ore is two levels above the strike made  during the week when eight feet of.ore  were-founo-which -avenged - $4��- U> ^ the  tou. This last ore body is in the floor  of No. 2 tunnel, and is the downward  extension of the great ore shoot which  was stoped above this level under the  Patrick Clark management, which assayed $100 acioss 20 feet.  Greenwood's death rate during 1908  was about 4 per 1000 population.  J. S. Birnie was elected school trustee in Greenwood by acclamation.  Born���At Eholt on January 1 oth, to:  Mr. and Mrs. W.

The latter is unique in"  that it is the only district in Canada  where   platinum   gravels   have   been  worked on a commercial scale.    Railway facilities for this section are  projected, and with  the solution of the  transportation problem it is  expected  that this portion of the  country will  receive     active   development.     The  present work is in anticipation of this.  ���Canadian Mining Journal.  Kettle Valley Railway  At the forthcoming session of the  provincial legislature the Kettle River  Valley Railway Co. will seek incorporation to operate a line of railway  of standard guage commencing at a  point at or near Midway, B.C., thence  to Penticton by the'most feasible route,  distance of 120 miles, more or less;  and commencing at or neari. Penticton  on Okanagan lake, thence to 'a point  at or near Nicola by the most feasible  route, a distance of about 150 miles  With the construction of the Kettle,  Valley line the Boundary will be  brought into direct communication  with the east, and the extensive mineral fields ofthe West Fork will be given  the transportation required to place  them in the front rank of the country's  producing mines.  ������n Jan. 23   '09  S BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

Coppor Consumption It on tho Inoroaso.
In a recent interview Adolph  Lew-
isohn expressed the following views as
to the possibility of an  early increase
in copper consumption:
The copper market is in sound con
dition.    Consumption   of   copper   in
Europe has been  very good throughout  the year.     In  this counhy. consumption in the latter part of 1907 and

The copper production in the Dominion, computed from direct reports
from all of the producers was 53.494.-
202 lb. in 1908, compared to 46,356,-
382 lb. in 1907. The production in
1908 by districts was approximately

the

will be much better, and that the year
1909 will see an increased consumption
both here and in Europe. The pro

T^hftt»*i>.h*s been a marked decrease
m^cign immigrotiqn to Canada this
yew,   Hor.the,eleven months ending
- November 50th, there was & decrease
of 144,583, or 46 -per cent, in the
immigration .to Canada as compared
fitli the ,same period last year (1907V
--Vhts decrease was entirely in the arrivals via. ocean ports, as the iinmi-
'gration from the United States regained practically the same as la**
ye^r. The Dominion (Government
should he congratulated upon the effectiveness of the measures which it look
to discourage immigration this year.
We are jr,lad to welcome desirablr
immigrants, und we have room for
such, yet at the same time it is not
-welLta have Ahem dumped upon our
Share-* svitiiQut any regard to our
capacity for employing and assimilating
them. Immigration needs regulation
•—constant, wise, and effective regu^
latjon—and we trust such will never be
lacking.

G.,\V, .Rumberger;assumed the chair
of: the r chief' executive officer of the
city on Monday evening, and from the
business-like manner with which he
has already taken hold of civic affairs
there- is - good reason to believe that
the administration of Phoenix municipal matters during rooo will be such
as will reflect credit not only on the
Mayor but on the city itself.   ,
Those   who   predicted   an   "open
town" with the election of Mr.   Rumberger as mayor may be placed on par
with weather prophets..    The time ol
the "open town" in this part of civilisation has passed; Phoenix has had its
day with gamblers and grafters, but that
day has been buried, and Mr. Rumberger is not the man to resurect the boiies
and kindle new''life.     Amateur  civic
politicians have   been   busy forming
programs  and  combinations   for  the
benefit Of the Mayor-elect,  but Mr,
Rumberger is too shrewd and experienced a man to move too hastily, and
may be relied  upon  to  give  proper
attention  to .the  matters  which  will
confront him during the year as Mayor
of Phoenix.
With Messrs. Marshall, Rogers and
McKenzie on the city council board,
the mayor has three men experienced
in local municipal matters who should
give him,valuable assistance, while the
interest in the city's welfare displayed
by- Aid. Deane, -Hillier and Cook at the
inaugural meeting Monday evening
augurs well for them rendering the city
valuable service during 1909.

The above statistics are computed
on the basis of blister copper reported.
Several smelters producing matte in
Canada reported matte shipments in
excess of the blister reported by the
concerns converting their product, the
duces have moderate stocks and there | difference being explained, of course,
is a good stock of standard copper in f ^ material in transit and accumulated
England, which is needed for legitimate business. I believe the price of
copper will gradually improve, but of
course there will be reactions. I am
of opinion that .in the near lutuie there
will be an enormous increase in consumption, due to ihe electrification of
thc railroads, besides which there is a
great future for the metal in all branches
of the electrical field.

in American history have been
characterised by prosperity. The panic
of -37 was succeeded by the boom ot
'3&. In '49 gold was found in California. Pike's Peak was discovered in
'$9 and the mines of California opened.
In '69 tbe era of reconstruction set in
and the prosperity that followed has
never been equaled. In '76 came
another readjustment of industrial conditions p&tticuUuly in the south, and
gie*t prospetiiy followed. In "89 came
the boom that collapsed in 'cji;. In
•90 the opening up of the Klondike
and the revival of trade after the Spanish war brought anothei boom. From
every indication it now looks, as though
'09 would do its j.xut in verifying the
ttad»Uoa*> that history icptais itself.

* Two of the most important even's
of the new parliament will be the taking of the census of 1911, and the
redistribution of the constituencies
according to the census. For the first
time the large increase of population
due to the immigration of the last
decade will be shown in the census,
and in the division of political power.
The census of .1901 gave west—between Ontario and the Rocky mountains—a population of 4*9,51 a. The
special census of 1906 showed a population of 808,863. 'We may estimate
ihe population■■ of today at a million
and a quarter. This, taking the unit
of representation at 25,000, would give
the'prairie provinces a representation
ol . twenty-seven. British Columbia
will have twelve instead of seven, and
there may bean even larger increase in
this province, the development of
which ..'has'-i.only begun. When the
stream of fnimigation once sets in, it
will be difficult to set bounds to the
growth of British Columbia,
We may look forward, therefore, to
the parliament elected four or five
years hence containing sixty or seventy
members from the west, between the
Red river and the Pacific ocean. The
election will mark an epoch in the history of the country for the house of
'commons will for the first time contain
a western contingent numerous enough
jto convey some idea of the immense
extent and resources or the country—
n>t ade<ju.Veide3, but only a promise
of what is .coming.. In the not very
distant future the country west of the
great 'lakes.witt elect as many representatives as the country to the east.
Probable  Copper   Production
and Earnings of Company.
The Granby plant is now capable of
treating 3000 to 3500 tons of ore daily,
or 1,225,000 tons annually. An average
yield of 23 pounds of copper to the
ton from such an ore output would
amount to 28,175,000 pounds of copper
annually, says the Boston Commercial. A change made recently to
one of its furnaces, the object of
which was to increase its capacity, has
not been giving as good results as at
first expected. This furnace is being
run experimentally, however, and if it
does as good work as expected after it
has been thoroughly adjusted, it will
enable the company to further increase
its smelting capacity 25% by a very
small outlay. '   '       X''  :" "."
In the past the Granby smelter has
never run to its full .capacity continu.
ously for any great length of time.
For a long time its supply of fuel was
interrupted frequently, and later on
was forced to shut down because of
labor troubles, and again recently as a
result of the bad forest fires in the
vicinity of the mine which burned up
the wooden trestles of the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific railroads,
which operated between its mine and
smelter and hauled its ore and fuel.
It is the belief of the management
that there will be no recurrence of
these, difficulties, and that the mine
can bb depended on to produce regularly in the future up to practically
the full capacity of the smelter.
When Granby Consolidated j: reduces 28,060,000 to 30,000,000 pounds
of copj.er, we believe its cost will be 9
cents per pound at a 15 cent copper
market would give it $i,6So,ooo annually, or better than $i 1 per share on
a capitalization of $15,000,000, this
being the capitalization which it will
have after it has made full payment
for the Crows Nest Pass Coal company,
a majority of whose stock it purchased
a year or so ago.
We would prefer Granby Consolidated stock as an investment to tbrother stock mentioned. We do not
feel inclined to advise you to use undue haste in purchasing any stock at
the present time, as it is quite probable
that most investment stocks will be
lower between now and the end of
next month.

The druggists have already been supplied with the Peruna almanac for

The mental characteristics of each sign

INDIGESTION IS
ENDED FOREVER
Misery   from   an   Upset
Stomach Vanishes five
minutes later.
Why not start now-—today, and foi-
ever rid yourself of Stomach trouble
and indigestion? A dieted stomach
gets the blues and grumbles. Give it
a good eat, then take Pape's Diapepsin
to start the digestive juices working;
There will be no dvspeysia or belching
of Gas or eructations of undigested
food* no feeling like a lump of lead in
the stomach or heartburn, sick headache or Dizriness, and your food will
not ferment and poison your breath
with nauseous odors.
Pape's Diapepsin costs only 50 cents
for a large case at any drug store here,
and will relieve the most obstinate case!
of Indigestion and Upset Stomach in
five mir.utes.
There is nothing else better to take
Gas from Stomach and cleanse the
stomach and intestines, and besides,
one triangule will digest and prepate
for assimilation into the blood all your
food the same as a sound, healthy
stomach would do it.
When Diapepsin works, your stomach rests—Rets itself in order, cleans
up—and then you feel like eating when
you come to the table, and what you
eat will do you good.
Absolute relief from all Stomach
Miser)* is waiting for you as soon as
vou decide to begin taking Diapepsin.
Tell your druggist that you want Pape's
Diapepsin, because you want to be
thoroughly cured of Indigestion.

SIZE: Octivo.  I'ACiES:   1228.  CHAPTERS:   25.  SCOPE: The Copper Industry of  the World.  COVERING: Copper History, Geology, Geography, Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mining, Milling, Leaching,  Smelting, Refining, Btanas, Grades,  Impurities, Alloys, Uses, Substitutes,  Terminology, Deposits by Districts,  States, Countries and Continents,  Mines in Detail, Statistics of Production, Consumption, Imports, Exports,  Finances, Dividends, etc.  The Copper Handbook is conced-  edly the  World's Standard Reference  Book on Copper.  THK MINER needs the books for  the facts it gives him regarding Geology, Mining, Copper Deposits and  Copper Mines.  THE METALLURGIST needs the  book for the facts it gives him regarding copper milling, leaching, smelting  and refining.  THE COPPER CONSUMER  needs the book for every chapter it  contains. It tells what, and explains  how and why.  THE INTESTOR IN COPPER  SHARES cannot afford to be without  it. The Copper Handbook gives  statistics and general information on  one hand, with thousands of detailed  mine descriptions on the other, covering the copper mines of the entire  world, and the 40 pages of condensed  statistical tables alone are worth more  than the price of the book to each and  every owner of copper mining shares.  PRICE: $5.00 in buckram with  gilt top, or $7.50 in full library  morocco.  TERMS: The most liberal. Send  no money, but order the book sent  you, all carriage charges prepaid, on  one week's approval, to be returned if  unsatisfactory, or paid for if it suits.

SIMPLE RECIPE  iiM RHEUMATISM  New C.P.R. Steamer on Coast.  The Princess Charlotte, steamship  de luxe of the C.P.R. fleet, the finest  and probahly the speediest, craft in  Pacific waters, is now plying between  Victoria and Vancouver, on which  run she will remain until spring, when  she will alternate with the Princess  Victoria in opposed direction between  Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle.  Built at Glasgow, Scotland, at a cost  of about $700,000, the Princess Charlotte is the embodiment of the latest  ideas, perfected practice, and designed  in one of the most famous shipbuilding  yards in the world.  The Princess Charlotte is 340 feet  in length, and 46 feet wide, and is  licensed to carry 1500 passengers.  SpJ endidRecipefor Home  Made  Rheumatism  and Kidney Cure  To relieve the worst forms of Rheumatism, take a teaspodnful of the following mixture after each meal and at  bedtime:   ���  Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half  ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;  Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three  ounces.  These harmless ingredients can be  obtained from our home druggists, and  are easily mixed by shaking them well  in a bottle. Relief is generally felt  from the first few doses.  This prescription forces the clogged-  up, inactive kidneys to filter and strain  from the blood the poisonous waste  matter and uric acid, which causes  Rheumatism.  As Rheumatism is not only the most  painful and torturous disease, but dangerous to life, this simple recipe will  no doubt be greatly valued; by many  sufferers here at home, who^ should at  once prepare the mixture to get this  relief.  It is said that a person who would  takethis prescription regularly, a dose  or two daily, or even a few times a  week, would never have serious Kidney  or Urinary disorders  or   Rheumatism.  Cut this put and^preserve it. .Good  Rheumatism prescriptions which really  relieve are scarce, indeed, and whtn  you need it, you want it badly.  The Kootenay Belle mine on Sheep  creek has produced 14 gold bricks  since last June.  The Maestro at Ainsworlh has  shipped eighty tons of high-grade during the past month.  A recent assay of ore from the Independence claim, Mother Lode, group  near Nelson, ran $295 to the ton.  It is expected that the Sullivan Min.  ing company will be reorganized and  operations resumed at the mine and  the Marysville smelter in a short.  Development of the 15-foot vein of  coal on Nine Mile creek has begun  with a drift of 200 feet to determine  the thickness and quality of the ore.  The Nelson and Slocan Development company are preparing to rawhide a large tonnage of ore from the  Pontiac at the head of Woodbury  creek.  For the purpose of taking over the  Kootenay Chief and Comfort mining  claims near Kootenay Lake, J. A.  Whittier and Louis Pratt have organized the Kootenay Chief Mines, Ltd.,  with a capital stock of $500,000, shares  at $5 par value. The head office of  company is at Kaslo.  A strike of 30 inches of 5 per cent  copper ore is reported from the Cham-  onix property in the Ymir district.  The ore was found in the face of a 90-  ft. crosscut, and at a \ertical depth of  about 60 feet. Development work has  been discontinued by the owners, residents of Vancouver, but in the spring  a lower tunnel will be driven to cut the  ore at a depth of about 200 feet.  Advertising British Columbia.  After a ten week's trip to the Old  Country, Hon. R. G. Tatlow, minister  of finance for British Columbia, returned last week. He is intensely  pleased with the results of his tour,  which was to make British Columbia  better known and advertised in the  United Kingdom from what he saw  and heard during his wanderings he  is sure that the Sunset province is  occupying more attention in the public  eoe than other provinces of the Dominion.  I     cc  Lto  tasnex  Ask any fair-minded doctor and he will tell you that iolden seal, cubebs and oil of copaiba (contained  Pe-ru-na) arc valuable remcdl-ss in the treatment of catarrhal diseases.    And every honest doctor will  concede that cotllnson!a canadensis, corydalls formosa  and cedron seed (contained In Pe-ru-na) are  tonic remedies of high value.
