As much as j��l 16 was paid for  American refined copper recently in  London by the government for the  manufacture of munitions. To prevent speculation in this metal the  minister of munitions has notified  consumers that they must not purchase more than 50 tons of copper  in one lot. Manufacturers are supplied by the government at the rate  of;��lOO a ton.  A promising strike of high grade  ore was made last week at the  Fidelity, near Gerrard, according  to S. A. Hunter, of Kaslo. The  ore body is reported to be eight  inches" in width, but not enough  work has been done on it to gain  any-idea of its extent. The samples  appear to carry high values, and  have the indications of being rich in  antimonial silver.

The next two events which attracted considerable  interest   was   the  contest for the Rossland and Trail cups.     As we go to press   the   above  events are being decided   between   A,   D.   Walley   or   Nelson,   and   S.  Patterson of Rossland, and for the Trail trophy between J.   P.   Campbell  and A. T. Walley.  Considerable interest was evoked in the contest for the possession  ofthe Grand Forks cup. . W. Johnson of Trail, is resting awaiting the  outcome of thesecond last game being stubbornly contested between  Strutzel and Smyth.  Last, but not least, among the events is the Greenwood trophy,  over which many a tussle has been waged. It continues with unabated  enthusiasm, and the final game is about to be played between Geo.  Evans' team and that of E. G. Smyth of Nelson for the possession of  ensigna of winner.  To all appearances Phoenix will.be unable to take possession of any  of the prized cups, but carried off several second, third and fourth prizes.  - In the Grand Challenge contest, P. C.

Thanks to the brigade, the conflagration'was squelched, and only the mute skeleton of  tbe habitation remains' t'oday, an  eyesore to'citizens and''a"menance  to adjoining property.  Ouce again the lackadaisical  efforts put forth by. the late council  are manifested. With all powers to  authorize the pulling down or removal, at the expense of'the owner  thereof, of the building,'which they  knew full well to be a dangerous J  nuisanc, is plain.  At present'it is the rendezvous of  every prowling cur in town. Most  of the canines meet their friends  there and have a dog-gone good  time.  Meantime its charred walls hold  out every allurement to thugs to  ply their nefarious calling, and  affords them an excellent hiding  place to crouch some dark night  before battering out the brains of a  victim.  Such an occiirance would   render  the city liable for damages, yet this  knowledge seemed to effect the late  representatives not one iota.    Even  a few dollars expanded in'^boafding  up   its  front  would  have    showed  the public that theii   interests  were  considered.    Truly,    their     efforts  were characterized by a spirit of do.  nothingness, and they lacked but  a  checkerboard and a barrel  of soda  crackers to impart the  proper   tone  to their labors.  that prevail. But sometimes, in his  eagerness to find gold, he takes  chances that he should not take,  and forfeits his life as a result.  Men in their hunt for treasure,  the world over, have never been deterred by danger from prosecuting  their quest. They have braved  Artie snows and tropic heat; they  have defied hostile savages and  death in manifold* forms.  Those    adventurous     Americans  who persist in mining in Mexico are  a'striking example of what men will  risk  to  acquire   wealth.     Many  of  them have been foully murdered   by  the Mexicans, who have been   aptly  described as "the meanest,   dirtiest  dogs  on  earth."    The    Americans  who remain on guard at  the  mines  to   protect   their   just   rights   and  interests nre in constant  danger  of  massacre, as they know full well.  It us no wonder that gold,   sirenlike, can becou men to their doom.  Monte Cristo, rejoicing in his   freedom   and   the  possession   of great  wealth,  spoke   truth   when   he   exclaimed,   "The    world    is    mtnel"  Gold pays its seekers   well  for   the  hardships  and  dangers   that   they  endure.    No   one   is    more    fully  aware of this  than   the  prospector  whose grim and determined  efforts  have  accomplished   so    much    for  mining.

Isn't     he  smart?    From Adam's time he   has  evoluted wonderfully, both in offense  and defense.    From the prehistoric  club with which he fought his battles  he has perfected instruments of  destruction   ranging    from    the    toy  cannon-cracker to  the   twenty inch  gun.    He has strained his  brain   at  invention and exhausted his physical  strength in the'manufacture  of implements to  kill   the lion   and   the  elephant and explosives   to  destroy,  his fellow man.     He has  succeeded  in  this  world-long  vocation.    Oh,  he's smart along these lines, but  he  hasn't yet   learned   which   blade   of  grass will relieve, like unto the  cat  and the dog.

"Twashtri mused a while.

Hamilton, Ont.���"This it* to state that  I have received great benefit from the  ���use of Dr. Pierce'e  Favorite Prescription. Some time  ago I waa run down  and weak, suffered  losa of appetite and  was,, miserable.  Four bottles of the  'Prescription-  cured me up in  fine shape; it did  wonders tor me and  I can recommend  ��� '������"��� it  very highly to  women who are ailing."���Miss  Makih-  Millbb, 127 Hess St.; Hamilton, Ont.

I be-,  pan taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription; I only took five bottles and it put  mo in splendid condition. I felt better  than I had for years. Other members of,  my family have used this medicine and  found it equally as beneficial. I can  highly recommend it to weak women."���  Mas. A. Gilmour, 71 Brighton Row,  Brantford, Ont.      y  The use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription makes women happy by making  them healthy. There arc no more crying  spells. "Favorite Prescription" makes  weak women strong, sick women well.  Like an open book, our faces tell the  tale of health or disease. Hollow checka  and sunken eyes, listless steps, sleepless  nights���tell of wasting debilitating disease  some place in the body. It may be one  place or another, tho cause is generally  traceable to a common source.

' Probably no district in the Dominion of* Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable pees, while in a few localities there  are more than surface indications  ���of the presence, of coal. '������'���  FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessible to river and railway.    There is scarcely a square mile of"  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could   not  be   reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay.    Not the least attraction from  the point of  view ofthe investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all'  awaiting the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted ef fche  statement, let us point tothe almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND  FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an   agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and   a visit  to  some   of  its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.*    The highways throughout the Bouk-  'dary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads..  ...

of the world's  chief factors  in   the

Born in the east, and with but

This was too much for the Suo-

was then regarded as the strolling

Lake is 24 to 24# cents  and  eloc.
trolytic is 23yi to 24 cents a pound.
While it is reported that  some  200
tons of electrolytic is being  offered
without takers at 23# down to 23yi
cents for immediate delivery at New
York, I   have  it  from  equally  reliable  sources  that  producers   are
besieged with  orders  for spot deliveries* of lake and electrolytic  at
24# and 24 cents, respectively.    A
lot of copper has been sold recently
for April, May and June delivery  at
approximately these prices, and it is
reported that orders  are  being re/
celved daily from Europe for more"
copper to be  delivered  on   various
dates during the corning six.monlns.
A  great  dear of discussion  has
been  provoked .by   the   announcement that  the  British government
has fixed an arbitrary price   for  the

Apparently the government  thinks
,l «s?being victimized by the  copper •
producers and does not realize  that
the  prevailing  price  of the   metal
results  entirely  from   the    natural
workings of the law of demand and
supply.    No   government  has    yet
been, able  by  edict  to   overthrow
natural law, and it is  hardly  probable  that  the  British   government
m hyiH succeed   in  doing it nQw.    If
English  manufacturers  are denied
the privilege of buying copper at  a
higher price than 21 cents they  will
have to close their factories and the
government will be  obliged  to  in
crease proportionately-its  munition
purchases  in   this  country.    There
has come to be a quite general  belief in business and financial  circles
recently that the war will end in the
very near future.    This  has  found
expression in the selling of securities
and in a very slight decrease in   the
purchase of materials for  manufacture of war supplies.    So far as can
be learned  there  is  absolutely  no
basis  for such   a   belief.    At   the
moment it seems  wholly  probable
that the war may continue  another
year and   possibly    several   years
longer.    There is every possible in.
dication that the  average  price  of
copper will  be   relatively high  for
several years to come, regardless of
