This brings the total  net earnings of the British Columbia  Copper company for the year 1910  up to $277,686.  Development   work   at   the   Cliff  mine at Rossland, under bond to the  Granby, has been   going along very  satisfactorily and   preparations   are  now being made to commence shipments-of ore to the Granby smelter:  Already a small force of men is busy  putting the road around the property  in good shape and shipments will be  made via the   Great   Northern   railway.

That British Columbia is to bre officially represented  at the Coronation next June is briefly  indicated, it being probable that both  Lieutenant-Governor   Paterson and  Premier McBride will go to London  for that great event���although it is  not improbable that  the   latter will  return "Sir Richard", a Knighthood  being on such momentous occasions  the Monarch's mark of his  appreciation of such distinguished services  to the Empire as that far-stretching  Empire's most youthful Prime Minister has already performed.  The review of the year just past  of course would have been incomplete had it not contained some passing reference to the accomplished  settlement of the Songhees reserve  dispute of long years' standing, the  determination of the like long-pending issue between the federal and  the provincial governments as to  fisheries juristiction, the summer's  abundant harvest, the notable successes achieved by British Columbia's fruits in both America and  ���^Mrope, and the substantial advance  'rfcc?rded in the related industries of  ��*lj-% lumbering and agriculture  m its Varying phases.  As .to-finances' (although such an  tation of rail   facilities"  constituted  the text of last year's sessional work,  k t  the feature of this, year's -assuredly  is found in comprehensive legislation  for the more effectual safeguarding  of life and property, such popular  legislation as marks inspired states-'  mensbipi Chief among .this year's  measures entitled to consideration in  this category is the Premier's bill (as  Minister of Mines) prescribing regulations for the complete protection,  insofar as legislation may go, of life,  limb .and property in the coal mines.  This,bill;it will.be remembered,was  l       >. �� t \ i Jr. J ^ x*  presented last year,  to elicit discussion and secure   suggestions/ primarily.     Draft copies of the measure,  as the house improved it, were widely distributed,  and its consideration  rested there  in   order   that   further  suggestions, opinions   and practical'  advice might next  be   sought   from  owners, mine  workers,  mining  en-'  gineers,    the   thinking   men   of the  Unions ��� any  and   everyone    whot  might contribute to the  bills  efficiency when  once  it  takes   its place  upon the statute, book.      This .unusual and direct conferring with the  people  has  been   in   progress    for  months; and meanwhile the government   has   proceeded   to   install in  each mining centre and working colliery  most  modern    and   complete  protective apparatus of the Draeger  pattern.    And this was  happily accomplished in time for the provincial  rescue equipment to be rushed to the  assistance of Alberta's  miners and  to be the means of saving many lives  on the occasion of the Bellevue disaster.   The bill is now complete and  will when passed   become   a   model  for other provinces  and  other nations, unchallengeably non-partizan  and in the public good.   It resounds  to. the lasting credit of leader Haw-  thornwaite of the  Socialist Opposition that at every stage he has done  all in his power to assist the  Premier in the perfection of this   worthy  measure,  A somewhat, similar and non-part-,  izan policy   is   being  pursued   with  (Continued on Page Three)  E beg to inform the public generally,  that we have taken over the DRY  GOODS, GENTS' FURNISHINGS  AND HOUSE FURNISHINGS DEPARTMENTS of the Hunter-Kendrick Co.

He Had Eczema  Doctors Said  25 Years and  "No Cure"  Yet Zam-Buk  Has Worked  Complete Cure  This is the experience of af inan of  high   reputation,   widely   known   in  Montreal, and whose case can readily,  be. investigated.    Mr. T. M. Marsh, the'  gentleman  referred   to,   lives at  101  Delorimier Avenue, Montreal," and has  lived there for years.   For twenty-five  years he had eczema on his hands and  wrists.    The disease first started in red  blotches,   which   itched,    and   when  scratched became painful.    Bad sores  followed, which discharged, and the  discharge spread the disease until his  hands were one raw,  painful mass of  sores. Just think of this state of affairs  continuing for twenty-five years!  In that time four eminent medical  men tried to cure him, and each gave  up the case as hopeless in the end.  Naturally, Mr. Marsh tried remedies of  all kinds, but he, also, at last gave it  up. For two years he had to wear  gloves day and night so terrible was  the pain and itching when the air got  to the sores.  Then came ^Zam-Buk! He tried it,  just as he had tried hundreds of. remedies before. But he soon found -out  that Zam-Buk was different. Within  a few weeks there were distinct signs  of benefit, and a little perseverance  with this great herbal balm resulted in  what he had given up all hope of���a  complete cure! And the cure was no  temporary cure. It was permanent.  He was cured nearly three years ago.  Interviewed the other day, Mr. Marsh  said: ''The cure which Zam - Buk  worked has been absolutely permanent.  From the day that I was cured to the  present moment I have had no trace of  eczema, and I feel sure.it will never return. Having suffered for twenty-five  years, I had naturally concluded that  my case was incurable, and I regard  iriy cure as a modern miracle."    ,  If yoii suffer from any skin trouble,  cut out this article, write across it the  name of this paper, and mail it, with  a one cent stamp to pay return postage, to Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, we will  forward you by return mail a free box  of Zam-Buk.

MOTHER DIED OF CONSUMPTION  AND ONE LITTLE GBRL IS NOW  AT QRAVENHURST.  A short time ago a woman in thc advanced stages of tuberculosis died in her  own home. By her death five little ones were  left without the care of their mother.   There  was money enough in the family to make  somo provision for the care of the children,-  bub it was almost impossible to secure anyone who would render this service, so afraid  are many people of this dread disease.    A  visitor to the home says that time and time  again ihe had found the baby sleeping in  her sick mother's bed,   and near by food  was stored  from which the children  pas-  took.    A sequel is revealed in the fact that  to-day one   of   these   five   children is  a  patient in Gravenhurst, and the baby is in  the "children's ward at the Toronto Free  Hospital for Consumptives.  It is for the care of such sufferers aa these  that the Muskoka Free Hospital for Con-  aumptives has been built. The tax on the  accommodation is heavy, and the Trustees  have only been able to make the large extensions of the present year.by borrowing  heavily from the bank. An appeal is now  made for funds to help on this work and  provide a place where children, such as are  referred bo here, may find a homo with good  possibilities of cure.  Contributions may be sent to W. J.  Gage. E*q , Chairman Executive Committee, 84 Spadina avenue, or Sec.-Treas.  National Sanitarium Association, 347 King  St. VV., Toronto.

The price  paid was $12.50 per acre in full sections of 640 acres.  There are about twenty settlers in  the neighborhood of Fort George already,    the    majority  coming  from  Michigan.     They  are all   delighted  with the country and the big  prices  received for everything grown,  and  place a value of $50 per acre, on their  land.     Engineers  are   pouring into  the company's offices from the United  States,    England    and     Australia.  Many   are   from   large colonization  companies.      Everything   points to  great   development   and   rapid   advance in value.  Boundary Hockey Schedule.

"* *  > Then across the mipds.of thescien-'  tists flashed the answer to the alleged copper tempering ofthe Mexican;  aborigines:  > In^ some  sections^of  Mexico, the copper was already tempered for them; the cobalt and nickel,  fused wittuthe copper,   when,heated  in their primitive furnaces,, and* the  result was a grade   of : alloy;- which  when heated and sharpened, gave an  edge which would cut like steel.  The  Indians knew nothing  of. the 7art-?of  tempering the-metal themselyesy.and'  could not have   removed   the cobalt  and nickel from their ores, even had  :they so desired.
