I'or the first six months of 1006,  the output of the mines of the boundary show a total of 033,526 tons,  with an estimated total valuation of  more tlun $3,000,000. I luring the  same period of 1905 tlie mines of this  section, practically the same properties,  shipped 45S, 103 Ions of ore, valued  conservatively at a little over $2,000,-  000. In the absence of definite valuations of the products from  all the mine managers, the  average per ton is placed at the low  figure of $5.  These figures show that the output  of 1906 thus far, as compared with that  of 1 905 for the same period, is an increase of nearly 50 per cent, which is  not a bad record, even for the Boundary, where things in a mining way  are, as a matter of course, on a considerable scale.  Herewith is appended a table showing the tonnage output of Boundary  mines for 1905 and 1906, by months  for the first six months v.i each year,  for purposes of comparison:  Month 1905 1906  January    ... 68,074 lo4i3/S  February  72,671 105,429  March  00,047 112,638  April     80,102 107,798  May  80,044 100,694  June  67,255 102,5S9  COMING AND GOING  Totals 458,193    633,526  Good Record For June.  The ore record for June is slightly  larger than for May, notwithstanding  thc fact that the British Columbia  Copper Co.'s smelter is out of commission, owinj to extensive enlargement in progress at the reduction  works. Granby shipped nearly 12,000  tons more in June thin ir. May, .-.ad  Dominion Copper sent out about 2,000  tons more than the previous month.

Hannam, the dairy man,  went over to the Lardeau this week to  secure a number of cows, the demand  for his lacteal fluid making this necessary  Archie F. Berry, formerly secretary  of Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, but  now employed at the Josie mine, Rossland, spent se\eral days in camp this  week.  O. B. Smith, Jr., superintendent of  the Granby mines, returned from a  trip to Massachusetts Monday, bringing Mrs. Smith and daughter, who  spent the winter with her mother, near  Springfield, Mass.  Frank, Andy and John Keefe, employed by the Boyles Brothers on the  diamond drills at the Granby mines,  left this week on a trip to Sherbrooke,  Que., by way of Iowa, where they  have friends.  W. C. Thomas, superintendent of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Boundary  Falls smelter, made a trip to Franklin  camp this week, and made examinations of the Franklin, Maple Leaf and  other well known claims.  Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the  V., V. & E., accompanied by Engineer  Hastie, of the Spokane Falls & Northern, tramped over the hills around  I'hoenix one day t'uis week, but as  usual, had-little to say about the object  of the tramp. Mr. Kennedy does not  do this sort of thing for pure fun,  however.  L. A. Campbell, manager of the  West Kootenay Power and Light Co.,  came in Wednesday evening. Electricians are now installing some of the  machinery in the large sub-station of  the company here, and the work of  surveying and building the short lines  to Summit and, Deadwood camps is  under way, with another to run to the  Boundary Fallsstnelter.

Wednesday evening the case of Dr.  Gordon vs. Thomas Iluk, for professional services, came up in the small  debts court. Iluk was employed at  the Brooklyn mine, and was slightly  hurt in March. He was examined  and the presence of a fatty tumor discovered. Iluk agreed, according to  the testimony of a witness, John M.  Beattie, to pay the regular fees for the  operation, which was successfully per  formed, and which did not come under  the $1 per month medical fee paid by  each miner. Failing to make payment,  he was sued for $75, the fees paid to  assistants in the operation, anil his  wages garnished. Both Dr. Boucher,  and Dr. Spankie testified that the  tumor was undoubtedly one ot long  standing, and judge Williams gave  judgment for plaintiff. It is understood that the case will be appealed.  Iluk is a foreigner, speak-; English  poorly, and for some reason was not  represented at the trial by counsel.  Death ol Willis Hudson.  Clifford Willis Hudson died Tuesday morning in Spokane, lrom blood  poisoning, brought on by overheating  before going in swimming. He would  have been 18 years of age in September. The family lived here several  vears, aud have the sincere sympathy  of Phoenix friends in their bereavement. J. H. Hudson, the father, of  the Granby mines, anil J. S.

MEADOW LARK  AT $20,000  Phoenix Syndicate To Operate Property.  Adjoins the Well Known Skylark Mine.  This week the papers were finally  signed in a deal by which the Meadow-  Lark claim, in the high grade belt, is  taken on an eighteen months bond by  Dalby B. Morkill. of Phoenix, for a  syndicate which is now about complete. The figure named in the bond  is $20,000, tlie first payment of $3.-  000 10 be made in live months, the  vendors being Win G. Mc.Mynn, Daniel |. Sullivan and John J. Caullield,  of Greenwood: N'els [. Laplaut, of  Marcus, Wash., and James McNicol,  of Vancouver.  Mr. Morkill has formed the Meidow  Lark Mining and Development Syndicate, including besides hiimself, G. W.  Rumberger, W. J. Porter, W. J. Mc.Mynn. J. J. Caullield and others. It is  the intention of the syndicate to be-  L;in work on the claim at once, spend  ing several hundred dollars each  month in development, and it. is confidently believed that in a short time,  comparitively. the property can be  placed on a shipping basis. The headquarters of the syndicate will be in  Phoenix.  In location the Meadow Lark has  everything in its lavor, adjoining the  Skylark claim in Skylark camp. The  latter has proved to be one of the best  high grade p'/opeities in ihe Boundary,  and is today looking belter than at any  time since the present company took  hold of it, not two years ago.  It is a steady shipper and is more  than paying its was as it goes. It is  believed that the Meadow Lark has  the Skylark lead, in fact, ore having  been found within do feet of the Meadow Lark side line. There would seem  to tie every chance of making a profitable mine ol the Meadow  I,ark.  Wednesday evening there were more  Knights of Pythias gathered together  in Greenwood than ever before in the  history of that place, it being the occasion of tbe installation ceremonies  for tbe officers for three lodges, those  at Greenwood, Midway and I'hoenix.

Everything possible was done for him  but he passeil away day before yesterday. Deceased was $2 years ot age,  and a native of Richmond county.  (Quebec. He came here abcut a year  and a halt ago, and accepted employ  nient at the Granby minis, alierward-  going to the Rawhide. He lived two  or three years in California before coming to Phoenix. The family have the  deep sympathy of many friends. Deceased was a member of tne Miners'  Union.  The owners of the Skylark expect to  get out about three cars of ore this  month  At the Biritsh Columbia Copper  Co.'s smelter the new machine shop is  now being used.  President Miller, of the Dominion  Copper Co., Ltd , is expected to visit  the companiy's properties here shortly.  At the 315 foot level of the lilkhorn  mine, where the shaft is being sunk,  excellent values have been encountered.  According to a Boston report the  Granby directors, at the August meeting expect to declare another dividend,  payable in September.  The pumping out of the Crescent  mine has been completed, and timbering is being done preparatory to active  development. W. H. Jeffery, M. E.,  is in charge with 15 men.  This week E. J. Wilson, representing the owners of the Grayhound, in  Deadwood camp, was arranging for a  bond on the properly with the repre  sentatives of New York capitalists.  On Wednesday an important ore  strike was made in the workings of the  Strathmore mine, near Greenwood, a  vein of high grade silver being broken  into, greatly pleasing the management  of the property.  A depth of 475 feet has been reached in the sinking of the main shaft at  the Mother Lode mine, and some ore  is being shipped each week and stored  at the smelter. About 125 men are  now on the mine  force.  Contractor McArthur has completed  the work of hauling the machinery,  which was loaded at the Sunset mine,  from the C. P. R, station in Phoenix  to the Dominion Copper Go's. Idaho  mine, where it is being installed.  An official of the Dominion Copper  Co. says that the National Trust company of Toronto is receiving satisfactory returns from stockholders' subscriptions. He adds that all but a few-  hundred thousand of the $1 shares  have been exchanged for the $10  stock.  A force of some thirty men is now-  employed at the Granby's Gold Drop  mine, the daily shipments being about  250 tons. More ore bins are being  erected at this property, and later it is  likely that another huge ore crusher���  the fourth for the Granby���will be installed at this outlet.  The credit for sharpening the steel  for the winning team in last week's local Dominion Day rock drilling contest  went to W. J. Pierce, one of the best  men in this line in the employ of  the Granby Consolidated. Morton's  English steel was used, for which E.  G Prior &: Co., of Victoria, are the  provincial agents.  WILL START  UP JULY 23  So Says   Manager   Biesel, of  Snowshoe.  ! W. S.  Macy to Have Board-  I ing House.  Latest Prices in Metals.

Charles   Biesel,    of   Rossland,   ihe  new manager of the   Snowshoe   mine,  was a visitor   in camp  again early this  week, and made the necessary arrange,  merits to reopen the   property and begin active work  thereon.    It is the intention to  have   work starled   at   the  Snowshoe   on or about   a   week   from  next Monday, July 23. and Mr. Biesel  will be here, himself to look after matters  generally.     While   he   was  here  Tuesday he saw W. S. Macy, of W. S.  Macy & Co., Ltd., and Mr. Macy will  1 open the Snowshoe boarding house on  ! the 23d   inst., and   have  charge  of it  j from that time   forward.    This makes  , four mine   boarding houses controlled  j by Mr.  Macy's concern, the others be-  | ing  the  Granby,  Skylark   and  Path-  j finder.  I Just how many men will be employ-  j ed at the Snowshoe is not now known,  j but the force will probably approxi-  j mate 50 or more when things are in  1 running order. When it was operated  I last by the Snowshoe Gold & Copper  1 Mines,   Ltd.,   there   were   from 75 to  100 men employed.  ,      Mr.    Biesel   went   to   Spokane   this  week,   after   being   in   Phoenix.     He  1 did not know yet just where the Snow-  shoe   ore  product would be disposed  I of.    Some of it is likely to be shipped  to Trail    smelter,   owned   by the new  Snowshoe   owners,   the    Consolidated  Mining and Smelting   Co., of Canada,  Ltd., and some of it may go to a Boundary smelter.  The Rossland Miner of last Tuesday, had the following appreciative of  Mr.   Biesel:  "Charles Biesel, who for a year past  has been the chief accountant and  purchasing agent of the Centre Star  and War Eagle mines, left yesterday  for Phoenix for the purpose of taking  charge of the Snowshoe mine there.  The Snowshoe was lately acquired by  the Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Company, and Mr. Biesel has been  placed in charge of its operations. Mr.  Biesel is a graduate of the mining department of a German university, has  liad a great deal of practical mining experience, is an able man and should  make a success of the Snowshoe.  Duiing Mr. Biesel's residence in this  city he has made numerous friends  who will rejoice to learn that he has  been advanced to a more lucrative position. All of Rossland will join in  wishing him the greatest possible success and commend him to the good  graces of the people of Phoenix, for,  he is, indeed, a jolly good fellow.''  *a^p<a>-t*&+**p&a*A**!��&&a^B>f&a>ia^^  ?

Finally it did  change, and last week it daily grew  perceptibly warmer, even in Phoenix,  the coolest place in the Boundary.  Each day after that it seemed to grow  a little hotter, though rain threatened  to cool things off the latter part of the  week. While residents of Phoenix  thought it a trifle warm when the mercury reached 85 to 90 degrees, they  can imagine the feelings of residents  of Grand Forks, Midway, Cascade and  Greenwood at 100 to 104 degrees in  the shade, Spokane showing about the  same, Portland, Ore., 105 degrees,  and some Oregon towns as high as  114. '1 he climate of Phoenix has its  advantages.  The Dominion postoffice authorities are beginning to sit up and take  notice of the miserable mail facilities |  between Phoenix and Greenwood, as  well they might. They are now keeping tab - on the amount of mail matter  sent between the two cities, and it is  to be earnestly hoped that it will result in a contraet being speedily let for  the handling of the mail by stage, so  that prompt daily service may be enjoyed. Another thing is that it is not  the quantity of mail that should cut  any figure in letting the  contract.    A  It is understood that Angus K. Stuart will handle a number of the Seymour Arm copper claims, better  known as ihe Cotton Belt group, which  have been attracting considerable attention during the last year or two.  There are now some 38 claims in the  district and the owners have succeeded in getting government aid to build  a wagon road to that section. Mr.  Stuart was a resident of the Boundary  eight or ten years ago, and was well  known here. Among other distinctions, he enjoys that of having been  the first subscriber to the Phoenix Pioneer, when it was launched, going on  seven years ago.  to show that if you want to get rid of  habit you must throw it off altogether."  Result���He won it.  not totally used up, all of which goes that papers were signed for the bonding of the well known White Bear  group of claims in Franklin camp to  E. A. Colquhoun of London, England,  who will pay $50,000 for the claims.  By the terms of the bond development work will be carried on continu  ously and payments made at stated intervals during the life of the bond,  which is rS months. This group consists of five claims called the White  Bear, Black Bear, Big Cub, Little Cub  and Lucky Jack. They are copper  properties and are owned by G. M.  Fnpp, H. C. Kertnan and half a dozen other Grand Forks citizens. The  bonding of this group by an English  company is regarded as the forerunner  of more English money being invested  in Franklin camp this year.  Ore shipments from Rossland mines  last week were 5,098 tons, making  1 73,239 tons for the year to date.  Last week mines of Yale and Kootenay shipped 20,031 tons of ore, making a total of 871,742 tons thus far  this year.  Le Roi No. 2 has declared a dividend of a shilling a share and proposes tc pay a similar dividend quarterly.  The foundations for the new Heber-  lein roaster at the Hall Mines smelter  have been completed and men are at  work making excavations near the car  tracks for other additions to the plant.  Seventy dollar ore is now being  shipped from the Iron Mask mine near  Kamloops. It is so rich that concentrating is not required, and the concentrator has been closed for the present.  A record output was made by the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. in the  month of June, the coal output having  been 91,325 tons. In the same month  21,000 tons_ of coke were manufactured.  William Yolen Williams has been  making an examination of the' California mine and other properties in Rossland camp, it is said with a view to reopening the properties and putting  them on a shipping basis. Mr. Williams had charge of the California in  early days, it being owned by what  was known as the Miner-Graves syndicate.  James H. Hawthornthwaite, socialist member in the legislature from Na-  naimo, will speak at the Rossland  Miners' Union anniversary celebration  on July 16th, after which he will speak  in the Boundary at Grand Forks,  Greenwood and Phoenix.  Nelson's regatta, for which extensive  preparations have been made, occurs  July 27th and 28th.  There is a vein of quaint humor in  the composition of Olivia Dahl, the  great Norwegian singer whom Manager  C. H. Gibbons is to send through the  interior towns of B. C, including  Phoenix, this summer. She even is  able to give a new touch to the time-  worn jest of the slow railway train. It  was on the Esquimalt & Nanaimo division of the Canadian Pacific,   which  connects   Nanaimo,    the  coal-mining  dozen letters  daily might be more 1.-11- centre of Vancouver Island, with Vic-  portant to the business men concerned  than in other places where a dozen  sacks are handled. In the meantime,  we will have to get along with a letter  requiring two whole days, under favorable circumstances, to go between two  places of say 1500 population each,  only five miles apart, and having railway connection.  How long will it last?  P. F. Roosa, paymaster for the Dominion Copper Co-, was here this  week, distributing the monthly cheques  to the employees of the company in  this camp, a welcome visitor, by the  way. Asked as to how the company  liked the present mail service between  Phoenix and Boundary Falls, he said  that it was all that it should not be.  "Why," said he, "do you know that it  actually takes four to five days for  mail to make the round trip between  Phoenix and Boundary Falls, places  that are only eight or nine miles apart,  and connected by a railway on which  passenger trains are operated every  week day ? That is the case, anyway*  and it makes it most inconvenient for  us in the transaction of important  business between our offices in the  two towns. It is simply fierce, and  the sooner it is changed the better for  trade conditions generally."  toria, the provincial capital. The  train was in a hurry and running fully  fifteen miles an hour to make up lost  time. Miss Dahl also was in a hurry  and even this terrific speed failed to  satisfy her. She proved to herself that  the train was actually moving by  watching the progress of the shadow  of one of the telegraph poles on the  plush-cushioned seat opposite her.  Then she hailed the conductor.  "Conductor", she queried with a  smile, "will you tell me what motive  power you use on this line?"  "Why steam, Ma'am," replied the  man of blue and buttons, "did you  think this was an electric road ?"  "No", was the prompt response, the  smile still lingering, "but then \  thought someone might have made a  mistake and coupled on to a  glacier".  A schoolmaster once said to his pu  pils, To the boy who would make the  best piece: of composition in five minutes on "How to Overcome Habit/'  ihe would give a prize. When the five  minutes had expired a lad of nine  years stood up and said: "Well, sir,  habit is hard to overcome. If you  take off the first lettei it doe:s not  change 'abit.' Ifyou take off another  letter you still have a 'bit' left.   If you  baved His Comrade'* Life.  "While returning from Grand Army  Encampment at Washington City, a  comrade at Elgin, 111., was taken with  cholera morbus and was in a critical  condition," says Mr. J. E. Houghland,  of Eldon, Iowa. "I gave him Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy and believe saved his life. I  have been engaged for ten years in immigration work and conducted many  parties to the south and west. I always carry this remedy, and have used  it on several occasions." Sold by all  druggists.  HE DUG.  He wanted a job and, likeevery one else,  He wanted a good one, you know ;  Wlieie his clothes would not soil and hia  hands would keep clean,  And the'salary mnsn't be low.  He asked  for a pen but they gave him  a spade,  And he half turned away with  a shrug,  But he altered his mind, and, seizing  the spade���  he dug.  He worked with a will that is  bound to  succeed,  And  the months and the years went  along.  The way it was rough and tfie labor was  hard,  But hia  heart he  kept  tilled  with a  song.  Some jeered him and  sneered  at  the  task, but he plugged  Just as hard as he ever could plug;  Their words never seemed to   djstnrb  him a bit���  as he dag.  The day came at last when they called  for a spade  And gave him a pen in its place.  The joy of achievement was sweet to his  taste  And victory shone in hia face.  We can't always get what we hope for  at first,  Success cuts many queer jigs,  But  one   thing   is   sure,   a  man   will  succeed���  if he digs.  By L. E.

When Maxim, the famous gun inventor, placed his gun before a committee of judges, he stated its carrying  power to be much below what he feii  sure the gun would accomplish. The  result of the trial therefore was a great  surprise, instead of disappointment. It  is the same with the manufacturers of  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. They do not publicly boast of all this remedy will ac  complish, but prefer to let the users  make the statements. What they do  claim is, that it will positively cure diar  rhoea, dysentery, pains in the stomach  and bowels, and has never been known  to fail.     For sale by all druggists.

I>. J. MATltlFO;!,  C. M.C  l'hoenlx  B, C��� (illy6, 1906.  The following circular was recently  sent to shareholders in the Uunoro  Mines, Ltd.; by thc officers of ihe  company. It gives some details rc-  Kurding the recent transfer of the Oro  Denoro mine, Summit camp, io the  British Columbia Copper Co. Ltd..  and also particulars of the work done  on the properties of the company during the pieceeding year:  To the Shareholders:  The annual meeting was not finally  held until 1st June. Notified that the  British Columbia Copper Company,  Ltd., would not take up its option on  the Oro l.)enoro mineral claim because  exploitation was not satisfactory, and  the rei. >rt of the meeting was held  pending negotiations. From an inspection of diamond drill cores and  from assays from 1,745 feet of drillholes it was realized there would be  no sale without a marked reduction in  price. To-day a price of 15,500 of  that company's shares fully paid up  was agreed upon. This was the very  best price that could oe got.  That company is now installing  splendid smelting and converting plant  three limes the capacity of its old one,  capable of earning a profit of one million dollars yearly. After completion  of plant, making large expenditures on  mine development, and paying for several new properties of large prospective value, its outstanding capital will  not exceed 380,000 uhares of $5 each,  leaving the company free from debt  and with 20,000 of its shares in its  treasury. It may, therefore, be expected that its shares will in eight or ten  months advance to $15 or $20 each,  and that, taking into account the other  assets of the Denoro Company, Denoro shares should within that period realize iSc to 20c each. 13.^00 of the  shares paid by the purchasing com pa  ny are to be pooled until 1 si November next, when a distribution of them  can be made. Notice of a genera!  meeting to confirm sale is forwarded  herewith.  At the annual- meeting the audited  accounts for the period from August  1st, 1904, to 1st May, 1906, were received and adopted. These showed  cash on hand in the Bank of Montreal  of $1 5,91 3.50, whereof $12,045 's'n  the savings department. The company has no debts except a very few current accounts, about equalled by the  realisable accounts owing it. During  ihe last half of 1904 and all of 1905 a  small force carried on purely development work, and the cost of it was  hardly covered by the ore taken out  and sold. The tonnage shipped during the last five months of 1934 was  1,857 tons, during the whole of 1905  was 2,85s, and during the first three  months of 1906 was 6,320 tons. The  last showed a very fair margin of profit.  Work was carried on during the  winter on the Hungry Man claim, and  the title obtained to one-half of it. On  account of the vein Deing in the bed  of a creek the cost of the shaft sinking  was much greater than expected, due  to seepage, and it became necessary to  install a steam hoist and do over 100  ieetofdead work, cross-cutting from  another shaft and then cntting through  adyke so as to drift on the vein, which  is a contact one with well defined  walls. The ore has been proven to a  depth of 45 feet. It is 1 1-2 to 3 1 2  feet wide on the hanging wall, carrying  gold values of about $20. The exposure of ore on the surface puts a considerable tonnage in sight. Further  work, is of course, necessary to prove  the property, but" that done so far is  encouraging. After obtaining expert  opinion, a line of action as to dealing  with and developing the property will  have earnest consideration.  The directors elected were Messrs. I  Charles R. Hamilton. K.

There are stores which do lots of  business without newspaper advertising; with the aid of advertising they  would have to move into larger quarters.  Thomas Finnigan, formerly ol Phoenix, but latterly of Midway, left this  week for Toronto, accompanied-, by  Mrs. Finnigan, for expert medical  treatment.  Born, July 2d, to the wife of W. B.  Hilliard, at Vernon, a daughter. Mr.  Hilliard was formerly a resident of  Phoenix, being employed in the Pioneer office.  Matters in connection with the recent  Dominion Day celebration having been  closed up, Secretary McEachern ' expects to have a full financial report  for publication next week.  Narcisse Lemieux, who is" understood to be a cousin of the new postmaster-general of Canada, and "is a  veteran employee of the city, struck off  for the Similkameen this week; to look  after some mining interests.      ��� r  It is the enterprising business man  who advertises. People know that if  they want to find the largest stocks of  the most up-to-date goods, they must  go to the store that is a consistent, persistent user of newspaper space.  City Clerk Matheson wishes license  holders to remember that all city  licenses, of whatever kind, expire on  the 15th, which being Sunday, renewals are due today, Saturday..

At the ice cream social and impromptu concert held by [the Ladies'  Aid of the Presbyterian church Thursday evening, a large audience was present���one of the largest of the season  ���and seemed to enjoy the mental and  physical feast.

His object is to  see the country and get a knowledge  of the west. The Presbyterians are  arranging for some kind of a gathering  to meet the distinguished gentleman.  No one should miss hearing him.  Danny Deane is the embodiment of  hope. He now has faith that he will  be able to move into his new hotel by  the first of next month, notwithstanding the annoying delays from broken  promises by lumber dealers, lath-  makers and a few others, which have  postponed his occupation of the new  building about two months.  D. J. McDonald, who was formerly  in the livery business at Eholt, and is  thoroughly, conversant with it, this  week purchased the" outfit of the Phoenix Livery Stable, on lower Dominion  avenue, and has taken possession,  from William R. Matheson. Mr.  Matheson expects to take a trip back  east in a short time...  Early this week Proprietor McMaster  stepped out of his Balmoral hotel for a  moment in the middle of the day. In  that time some one of no little nerve  went behind the bar, pried open one  of the locked mahogany drawers and  helped himself to $510, mostly m silver.

The total payroll of the mines and  smelters of the Boundary for the  month of June was approximately  $200,000, including the railway men.  Most of the mines and smelters had  the monthly, payday this week, the  cash being distributed about as follows :  Granby Consolidated   B. C. Copper Co   Dominion Copper Co   Smaller mines .   C. P.

The lower  levels of the mine, which were recently  opened up under the direction of R.  H. Anderson, are developing in a most  satisfactory manner, new and valuable  ore shoots having been uncovered.  The shoots are so large and contain  such large quantities of ore that they  are said to insure the mine a long lifetime of profit.

Quite latterly it appears to have  grown the custom again for a few to  attempt to jump their board hills on  paydays. One individual was chased  to Greenwood this week by Chief of  Police Flood, and agreed to disgorge  rather than be run in on a vagrancy  charge and permitted to work for the  government at the Nelson jail for a  few months. The chief says that will  be the program for the next offender.  Some Base Ball  Recerdi.

Greenwood has a church trustee  who has gone into the brewery business,.  An average of 60,000 feet is the daily cut at the Yale-Columbia Lumber  Go's sawmill at Cascade.  During the last six monthe the city  of Greenwood received $16,147.89,  and paid out $14,668.17.  Three pupils from Greenwood, Dolly Yates, Leila Rowe and Ray Parker,  were successful at the high school examination recently held there.  F. L. Underwood, of New York,  president of the British Columbia  Copper Co., Ltd., arrived at Greenwood Wednesday, to spend a few days.  The Greenwood Ledge says that  one joyful thing in the Lord's Day  Ohservance bill is that boss printers  will no longer find it necessary to pay  price and a half for Sunday work.  About the first of the month the B.  C. Telephone Co. will be actively at  work rebuilding the company's system  at Greenwood, all the preparations  having been made for that purpose.  Mrs. Mary Blythe, formerly of  Phoenix, and who has a ranch at  Westbridge, was recently married to  David McBride, a rancher of that section, by Rev. M. D. McKee at Greenwood.  Faulds Brothers, of Greenwood,  won the rock drilling contest at Nelson, Dominion day, making 35 inches  flat, against 31^ inches by Robert  Walters and A. J. McGillivray of Sil-  verton.  James Donohue, of Chicago, president of the Helen Mining Co., and  also interested in the. Strathmore and  other high grade mines in the Boundary, arrived in Greenwood Wednesday,  and expects to spend several weeks in  this section.  Frank Hartinger, brewer, of Grand  Forks, is having an interesting time  with the city fathers of that town. He  claims the right to sell his beer on  Sunday, under his Dominion license,  and the council thinks otherwise, The  outcome is awaited with interest there  as elsewhere.  The C. P. R. recently sold 10,000  acres of timber land near Westbridge,  on main Kettle river, being in block  3637. This makes about 25,000 acres  that F. W. McJ^ane, the agent, has disposed of in this section for the C. P.  R. in the last year. The land brought  $3 per acre.  Modest Claims Often   Carry the  vlcllon.  When Maxim, the famous gun inventor, placed his gun before a committee of judges, he stated its currying  power to be much below what he feit  sure the gun would accomplish. The  result of the trial therefore was a great  surprise, instead of disappointment. It  is the same with the manufacturers of  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. They do not publicly boast of all this remedy will ac  complish, but prefer to let the users  make the statements. What they do  claim is, that it will positively cure diar  rhoea, dysentery, pains in the stomach  and bowels, and has never been known  to fail.    For sale by all druggists.
