Since the inception of the parole  system in Canada, 16,000 prisoners  have been released.  Tomorrow, Sunday, a lecture on  Korea will "ber delivered in the Presbyterian church, by Miss McCully,  a worker in the Canadian' Missionary Society. .The discourse, which  of course is based on an actual residence in trie"''Hermit kingdom" and  a close association with its people,  will be something in the nature of  an educative treat and a large audi  ence will no doubt make a point of  being present to hear the speaker.

It  will be set up on the company's  property at Drury inlet, where there  are excellent oil indications. Edward Brown, managing director of  the company, and a crew of five men  went along. Dave Gibson will superintend the operations. The company's gasoline launch towed the  outfit, which was loaded on a scow.  Before leaving, Mr. Brown said he  expected they would be working in  two weeks.���Province  The   deposits   at   the   Do  Assay   Office,    Vancouver,  bles him if he walks far.

Porter says  he was crawling across  a field when he called to, the Phoenix  boys   to  come   along,   but   as   the  field was being covered with a hail  of shrapnel   they   evidently thought  the chance was not worth the risk.  "Porter says he saw them taking Jim  Martindale a.prisoner.      He learned  from other wounded arrivals in Eng-  landof the   deaths   of Sid Jennings  and   J. Pitpladdy.

Treasure From The Deep  The gold which constituted part  of the freight of the C.P. R. steamship Islander has been recently recovered. The vessel collided with  a submerged berg^ while off Juneau  and sank in about"300 feet of water.  The wreck occurred' about fourteen  years ago, and although several attempts were made to recover the  treasure, it was not until last month  that any success attended the operation.     It is   said   that   the   loss of  Greenwood, but under the new regulations between the hours above-  mentioned, the time is extended to  three minutes for the same price.  Another new convenience sure to  be appreciated, is  a  plan  that provides  for   the   making of appointments for a night conversation.  Mr.  A, who lives   in   Phoenix wishes to  talk   with   Mr.   B.   in   Greenwood,  calls up   central   and   fixes the time  for ten o'clock.      Both of them then  make a  point   of  being near   their  respective phones at the hour mentioned and the conversation is carried on as per schedule; and at one-  third the cost  of a   day call.    The  new rules are principally confined to  B.C. Boundary points.  May Be Used Yet  Turpinite, the new French explosive, was invented in 1913. M.

The  Yukon   gold    started  later this  year  than   last, but  it is  now coming with   a   rush, and.it is  roughly    estimated   that   $125,000  worth has been received   this week.  The  fiscal   year  of  this  institution  closed with March.     For April, May  and June, the  first  quarter   of the  j new fiscal  year, 387   deposits   have  been received, as against 271 for the  previous corresponding period.  This  indicates that the  concessions made  by  the   Dominion   Government   regarding this assay office are bringing  about steadily increasing patronage.  the  fame  of  our  roads   is   one   of  them.     The other day a  family party  of  American    motorists   passed  through   Phoenix   en route   for the  Okanagan.    They  had motored all  the   way   from  San   Francisco,  the  journey to Phoenix only consuming  about  fourteen   days.     Two   days  were  lost  on   the   trip.     Their car  was specially equipped  for  the trip  and the  sleeping and dining accommodation made the party practically  independent of hotels.    This  is the  first   car   to   reach   Phoenix with  a  license issued in San Francisco.  'Phone 56  P. O. Box 309  The Little Store  First Street.

The   affair   has . now   reached   the  eighth    month   on   June 9th    last.  Each pen  consists  of six hens, and  all   the   well-known    varieties    are  well represented.   In the non-weight  | class    the   White   Wyandot tes  are  well in the lead, six of them account-  ing for 861 eggs.     The lowest yield  in the same class was from a pen of  Silver Campines which laid 441.  In the weight class, the lending  pen are the Barred Rocks, with  893 eggs, while the second favorites  are six White Wyandottes with S40  to their credit. A pen of Rhode Island Whites belonging to Fred W.  Frederick, of Phoenix, have accounted so far for 665 ep;^s, while the  lowest yield to date is that of 502  from six White Orpingtons. The  contest commenced on October 10th,  1914, and closes on Oct 9th, 1915.  Good Fishing Season  The oldest inhabitants of this district, quite fail to recall a time when  the   trout in   Boundary   creek  have  been so  delightfully accommodating  as   during   the  past   two   or   three  weeks.       Pools    both    below   and  above the   falls  seem   to  find equal  favor, and   some   fine catches  have  been brought  into   town.     But perhaps   the   biggest    mess    of    trout  landed in one day was that of Ralph  Coutts, who  came  up   the  hill with  fifty.     On Sunday last the creek was  lined with   anglers  and   the fish appeared to be getting the worst of it.  SPECIAL FOR TODAY:  Jealousy oft turns to hate.

So let the submarine give over  fighting the transatlantic liners, the  ferryboats and the fishing smacks,  and go to the test of shutting Archangel off from the. supplies of munitions for the Russian armies. Nothing that the submarine has yet  done has been of the slightest value  to the German' cause.

The  church evidently  didn't suit him, so  he resigned the curacy and took up  the study  of political  science.     In  1909 he beame a British subject and  was  secretary   to   Mr.   Rown'tree,  M.P.    The following year  he contested the Darlington constituency  in the Liberal interests and defeated  the  Conservative  candidate  by 29  votes.     At the   next   election the  same year he did  not seek a seat.  During  his first year in London  he was given  six  months' instruction in   the  Christian   religion, but  the parson refused  to   baptize him,  so he  reciprocated  by stealing the  minister's wife's jewelry.   He bolted  for Germany and after  a residence  in Holstein returned to England and  wrote his aggrieved instructor a letter  beginning:    "Dear   brother   in  Christ."    The reply was  a note informing him that if he didn't clear  out of England in 24 hours he would  have to reckon with the police.    He  disappeared   again   for   a   season.  Being proficient in  many languages  he was  given  a job in the censor's  office, his specialty there being the  Magyar language, but he was soon  discharged when  it was found that  he had been guilty  of writing indecent  marginal notes  on  letters ad.  dressed  to  females.     He   was   frequently short of money, and tapped  freely every district he lived in.  According to his own confession  he was an agent of the German  government, but he admitted that  the British secret service officials  were suspicious of him and refused  point blank to have anything whatever to do with him. They in turn  emphatically state that he had been  Coal mining rights of the Dominion^  In Manitoba; Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of-British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of twenfcy-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Not  more than 2,660 acres will be leased to  one applicant.  Application for a lease must be made  by the applicant in person to the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which the rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land must  be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unstrr-  veyed territory the tract applied for  shall be staked out by the applicant  himself.  Bach application must be accompanied by a fee of $6 which will be refunded if the rights applied for are not  available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the merchantable  output of the mine at the rate of five  cents per ton.  The person operating the mine shall  furnish the Agent with sworn returns  accounting for the full quantity of  merchantable coal mined and pay the  royalty thereon. If the coal mining  rights are not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once  a year.  The lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may be considered  necessary for the working of the mine  at the rate of $10.00 an acre.  For full information application  should be made to the Secretary of the  Department of the Interior, Ottawa,  or to any Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.  W. W.

He was on board of the  Titanic, Empress of Ireland and; the  Lusitania.  Immense herds of fur-bearing  seals have been sighted off the west  coast of Vancouver Island recently;  Captain Baker of the Vancouver  halibut schooner, Jessie, reports  having sailed through thousands of  them. The mammals were quite  tame and came nosing around the  ship.  Previous to her destruction, by a  mine, the deck of the battleship  Triumph was pierced by a Turkish  shell which set fire to the captain's  cabin. However, the shell burst all  the pipes in an adjoining bathroom  and the fire was automatically flooded out.  The suffragettes are  doing great  work in the recruiting line.     One of  them recently stopped  a young fel.  low in London and inquired why he  was not wearing the khaki uniform.  "Have you   no pride in your country?" she^asked.     "Gee! Yes, madam," replied the boy.    "I'm leaving  for New York  next .week.     I'm an  American."  Sir Nathaniel Barnaby, formerly  director of naval construction, died  this week in London. He was regarded as the father of the modern  battleship and when only 26 years  of age was overseer of the great  Chatham yards. He was also the  author of the national hymn, "God  Bless Our Motherland," and a Sunday school superintendent for nearly  half a century.  According to W. Stewart, of Vancouver, he has seen a nnmber of  passenger pigeons at a point two  miles from Ladysmith, on Vancouver Island. Mr. Stewart is positive  about the matter as he has seen  them in thousands when he was a  boy living in Ontario. Out of the  millions that used to be seen about  forty years ago, there is only one  kqown specimen living. The birds  mentioned ' by Mr. Stewart have  dark slate-colored backs and the  gleaming parti-colored necks is  plainly discernable.  By using a biblical reference from  the parable of the Prodigal Son, a  soldier in a Lancashire regiment, a  prisoner in Germany, has let his  wife know of the poor food supplied  to the prisoners. In the course of  an apparently cheerful letter he  wrote: "I hope that at Easter you  will read my favorite verse, Luke  15, verse 17." Somewhat puzzled,  his wife turned up the passage and  read: "And when he came to himself he said: How many hired servants of my father have bread enough   and   to   spare,   and   I  perish  Boundary District of Brit Is h Columbia  RICH  IN  MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITIES--?  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array *rf  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 ores, 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 accessable 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 of the 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, to^  gether with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles oh 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 of the  statement, let us point to the 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 or-  chards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists" paradise, millions having been  spent on theconstruction of government roads.  No locality is better served with railroads than the Boundary district. At  present this section is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific cdast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  I. 0. O.
