TAKE THE ORO DENORO AND B. C. MINES  B. C. Copper Co.  Now Has Both  Well Known  Properties in  Summit   Camp.  For   the last  two   or   three months  a  good deal of quiet  there has been  work going on in different parts of the  Boundary, in the shape of securing  bonds on desirable copper properties.  The Pioneer announced one of these  last week, whereby J. L. Martin secured some 20 claims here for G. 13.  Dennis of Spokane, on behalf of a  strong New York syndicate. This  was the Marshall, Monte and Forty  groups deal. Willi the necessity of  greater ore reserves, to feed the smelters now being enlarged all over the  Boundary, properties heretofore quiet,  but which it is believed, can make  good, have been sought.  This   week   the   British   Columbia  by which the Oro will become the  property of the B.C. Copper. This  was just ten days before the expiration  of the option. l  The price paid is not given out, but  Mr. Curtis, in a letter to Oro shareholders some time since, stated that  they would receive about 20 cents per  share for their holdings. It is understood now the B. C. Copper Co. finally made a counter offer, somewhat less  than the option called for, and it was  accepted.  Deal tor the B. C. Mine.  Some weeks ago, W. T. Hunter, of  Greenwood, journeyed to Montreal  and obtained an option on the B. C.  mine in Summit camp, for a sum  not  equipped with machinery and actively  developed. At first the ore was  shipped to the Trail smelter, being  rich enough in copper and gold," the  latter particularly, to stand that long  haul of about 125 miles. Later it  went lo the B. C. Copper Co. smelter.  S. F. Parrish, M.E., was th'j manager,  and the mine continued operations till  1903,when all the ore in sight having  been shipped, it was closed definitely,  having shipped over 100,000 tons of  ore.  A few men owned the B. C. mine,  it being practically a close corpoiaticn,  and little was given out about it. 'I'he  statement has been made, however,  that over a million dollars   was  taken  and the verdicl is that it is doing very  well indeed, and will improve with  practice, it fortunately having some experienced bandsmen in the organization.  Monday evening, July 2d, a big ball  will be given in Phoenix Miners' Union  hall, and there is no doubt of its having a very large attendance, being the  best ball room in any part of the  Boundary.  COMING AND GOING  Boundary Mining Notes  given out, but understood to be about, out of the   property,   which   gave   the  $25,000.    This week Mr. Hunter sold (owners back   their  entire   investment  with a large profit. In any event.they  declined to prospect to any extent for  more ore, or spend any more cash, on  Copper Co. closed two deals of more! the option to the B. C. Copper Co.,  than passing importance, by which ' and on Wednesday .Foreman Henry  they will be able to add to the shipping ' Johnson was sent to the mine with a  facilities in large degree.

Those familiar with the property  assert that there are today in the mine  large bodies of ore that could not be  profitably handled five years ago, but  which today will pay well to smelt���  just such ore as the smelters desire.  In addition to this, there is an, immense area of unprospected ground,  in a well mineralized territory, included  in the working bond or option, .and  mining men believe that the acquirement of the B. C. mine was  a  stroke  was  Company.  SNOWSHOE  GOES TO C.P.R.  Several Concerns Were After  the Group.  Another Big Deal in Phoenix  Camp.  Important deals in mines in the  Boundary district, especially around  I'hoenix camp, seem to be the order  of the day. The latest is that of the  Snowshoe group, which lhe Pioneer is  informed, on what is considered the  best authority, has been purchased by  the C. P. R. This undoubtedly means  the Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Co. of Canada, the company which  now owns and operates the War Eagle,  Center Star, Trail smelter and St. Eugene mines, under the capable management of Walter H. Aldridge.  While details are not yet forthcom  ing as to terms of transfer of the Snow-  shoe property to the new owners, it is  known that George S. Waterlow, of  London, England, vice-chairman of  the Snowshoe Gold and Copper Mines,  Ltd., the title of the English corporc-  ation owning lhe Snowshoe, is now on  lis way to British Columbia, to complete the transfer to ihe purchasers,  and is expected to arrive in a few days.  If the complete history of th : sale  of the Snowshoe were known, it is bc-  ieved it would make interesting reading. Suffice it to say that, following  the announcement made a couple of  months since, that it was the intention  of the Snowshoe company to reopen  the mine and resume shipments of  ore, it began to be rumored that several  mining concerns would like to acquire  the Snowshoe and were negotiating to  that end. As nearly as can be learned  at least four combinations of capital  sought the property, some of them  among the largest in the Boundary,  but the C.P.R. carried off the pri/.e,  and it is more than likely that Snow-  shoe ores will be taken to the Trail  smeller at no distant date, where they  will be used to mix with the ores from  the mines of Rossland.  inents to do its own smelting or secure  an interest in a smelter. Since then  several propositions to this end have  been considered, one being an amalgamation with the B. C. Copper Co. and  another with the big Rossland mine  m tiger.    These all fell through.  All told, the Snowshoe has shipped  94,040 dry tons of ore. The property  is equipped with a_ fine machinery  plant and electric hoist, and has hid  more than 7,006 lineal feet oi development done, exclusive of open cut and  stripping operations. The main working shaft is down about 350 feet, and  there is a large amount of ore broken  down in the stopes, which can be  taken out and shipped at any time.  This has been estimated at 100,000  tons. There are good bunk and  boarding houses, and three spurs from  the C. P. R. to the property. The  work was done under the management  of A. J. McMillan, with John W. Ast-  ley as superintendent, and the late  James H. Trevorrow as foreman. As  many as 100 men were employed at  the mine.  PRIZES ALL  ARRANGEDFOR  For  the  Big Dominion  Celebration.  Day  School District Boundaries.  City Assessor Matheson has received from the provincial Superintendent  of Education the definition of the  exact boundaries of the enlarged Phoenix school district, to comply with the  amended School Act. The boundaries  established July 14th, 1900, which  were altered and redefined December  7th, 1901, and again on April 23rd,  1906, are now given as follows :  All that area embraced within the  corporate limits of the city of Phoenix,  and in addition the following crown-  granted mineral claims : Yukon fraction, Garfield, Wilhelmina, New York,  Brooklyn, Joker, Standard, Stem-  winder, Phoenix, Grey Eagle, Monte  zuma, Gilt Edge, No. 13, Fourth of  July. Nugget, Gold Drop, Curlew fraction, Gold Drop fraction, Missing Link,  Monarch, Snowshoe, Rawhide, War  Eagle, Golden Eagle, Aetna, Victoria,  Knob Hill, Old Ironsides, Triangle  fraction, Tip Top, Banner, Toothpick  fraction, Idaho and Boston. This  comprises many ol the mineral  claims within a mile or two of the  Phoenix city hall.  Large Crowds Expected From  Nearby Towns.  Madam's Minstrels.  The famous  Mahara  Minstrels, announced for next  Tuesday night, is  a  History of Snowshoe.  In the Snowshoe group are four  claims, the Snowshoe, Pheasant. Alma  fraction and Kairplay fraction, which  join the Granby and Dominion properties. The principal claim is the  Snowshoe, and it is on this that most  development has been done since its  location in 1891. The British Columbia ( Rossland and Slocan) Syndicate,  .td., performed about $130,000 worth  of development from 1X99 to 1901,  when the prcsen"- owning comp; :iy was  organized in London, to take over  iiiul operate the group.  Ore from the Snowshoe was shipped almost entirely to the Greenwood  and Boundary Kills smelters, the company not havin;-, a smelter of its own  I Vou! 1900 10 1903 the price of copper was low, and ���,"������ the grade of on.  was also low, like that ill the balance  of Phoenix cam]) mines, it was decided  in the fall of 1903 to close the mine  till the company could make arrange-  'superb combination ofthe best and  most popular features of opera, travesty and vaudeville, with largest and best  colored chorus in America. The performance abounds in catchy music,  snappy specialties, beautiful costumes,  novel dances, funny comedians,  special scenery, striking electrical effects, pietty octoroons, picturesque ensembles and all the latest song hits of  the east. The entire performance is  presented by a metropolitan organization of foremost colored singers, comedians and specialty artists of their race  in America. More bright music, entertaining vaudeville numbers and  hearty laughter is offered in the two  and a half hours of Mahara's Minstrels than would supply half a dozen  of the average musical farce comedies.  Mahara's famous challenge band and  [orchestra will give a street parade in  the afternoon and concert in front of  the opera house at 7:30 p. m.  Latest Prices In Metals.

Most of the details of the forthcoming Dominion Day celebration in  Phoenix were settled this week, and  the event bids fair to be all th.U was  anticipated. Much interest is also being taken in outside towns in the  various sports, for which good prizes  have been hung up by the business  men of the city and contributors  generally, and correspondence is daily  bringing out the fact that .there will be  several base ball ��� teams here for the  occasion, several hose reel teams, and  the best horses in this section to compete.  For the machine rock drilling contests, miners from several properties  have announced their intention of  competing, including probably three  teams from the Brooklyn, three or  four from the Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill, one or two from the Gold Drop,  some from Greenwood, Oro Denoro,  etc., so far about a dozen teams, at  least. The Caledonian sports are also  coming iii for their full share of inter  est, and there is no doubt but that  there will be plenty of contests.  The arrangement made with the C.  P. R calls for running special trains  from Midway, Greenwood and Grand  Forks on Monday, to return late the  same night, but the tickets will be  good till the third of July, so that the  sports of the second day can also be  taken in. The Gt. Northern will give  fare and a third round trip to Phoenix.  Following are some of the prizes  and the events to which they are attached, the full and complete programme to be out next week, as early  as possible:  Hose Reel Races, wet test and hub  and hub���$400, divided into $135  and $65 ist and 2d prizes, for each  event.  Horse races���$150, including harness race, free for all; saddle race,  owners up; pony race, and  slow  lace.  Base ball tournament���$150, whicn  will undoubtedly be a feature of the  celebration. The oase ball park will  be put in good shape and a grand  stand erected.  Machine rock drillinu - -$i 50 first.  and $25 and entrance fees for second.  Caledonian sports���$1 25, including  100 yard dash, 220 yard dash, running  broad jump, running high jump, standing high jump, running hop-step and  jump, standing broad jump, putting  16-pound shot, pole vaulting, miners'  race, fat man's race, three-legged race,  boys and girls' races with separate  prizes, the former under 16, 12 and 10  years, and the latter under 16 and 12  years, and mountain climbing, which  will be around the Dominion Copper  Co.'s old powder house at the top of  Gospel hill.  The Phoenix hand has made its  first public appearance on the streets,  Ore from the Emma mine is now  going to the Granby smelter.  A deal is reported on for the  Meadow Lark, adjoining the Skylark  in Skylaik camp, in the high grade  belt.  So far about $2,000,000 of the $1  par value shares of the Dominion  Copper Co. have been converted into  the new $10 certificates.  Four and five machine drills are kept  steadily at work at the Dominion Copper Co.'s Rawhide mine, where large  ore bodies are being opened up, and  some shipping is being done.  The new buildings and head works  of the Dominion Copper Co. on the  Idaho claim, in the heart of Phoenix,  where the main working shaft is being sunk and timbered, are beginning  to assume shape.  Sinking at the Skylark was resumed  this week, the 45 h. p. boiler having  been finally installed. The main shalt  will be put down to the 250-foot level.  More ore was hauled from the mine  this week also, for shipment.  At the Boundary Falls smelter of  the Dominion Copper Co. the machines in the new machine shop are  now in use, being operated for the  present by steam power, till electrical  energy is available, later in the season.  It is expected to be about the end of  the current year before Granby shares  are listed on the New York exchange,  by which time the shares will* have  been changed to $100 par value. The  new certificates will not be issued for  several months.  Col. T.L. Dickason, a half owner in  the Crescent mine, arrived in Phoenix  Wednesday, from Chicago, with wife,  children and maid, and will spend a  month or two in the Boundary, looking after his interests. He has rented  a house boat on Kootenay lake near  Nelson, for the hot weather.  The tunnel at the Gold Finch, a high  grade property adjoining the E. P. U.,  j is now in a distance of about 570 feet,  j and has reached a $ 50 ore body. Steam  has been used for operating the drills,  but a five-drill air compressor is to be  installed, and the mine was closed this  week until the installation work is completed.  The Greenwood-Eureka Mining Co.,  Ltd., capital $300,000, has been  formed to operate the Eureka, a claim  in the high grade belt, adjoining the  Gold Finch and E.P.U. mines. Messrs.  Hamlin and Well wood are largely interested in the   new  company,   which  Mayor G. W. Rumberger went to  Spokane on Monday.  Rev. Samuel Lundie returned yesterday from a visit to Sandon.  Miss Flossie Binns, of Trail, is  spending a month wilh her aunt, Miss  Kale Clark.  I. Dinsmore, provincial constable at  (Grand Forks, was  here yesterday  on  official business.  P. H.

But  the merchants and business men generally of  this section were and are dependent in  tlie   largest degree on  the success of  the mining industry.    If it failed, they  must of necessity go under also; if it  was successful, it would also  be their  success.    And while the eastern financiers would not listen to a mining man  from  British   Columbia, so  to  speak,  they   would,   directly   or-  indirectly,  furnish the credit on which the business  of the  country   was   being conducted.  Was there ever a more inconsistent  attitude?    Gradually, however,  things  have changed, but one result has been  that many ofthe best mining concerns,  have gone into the control of the more |  service  between   Phoenix and Green  wood.    As a slow thing it has the mil-  lenium backed  clear over the dump.  'I'he distance   between   the  towns   is  scarcely live miles, yet it takes letters  so long to pass between  these copper  cities thai the stamps are mildewed by  the time a letter reaches its destination  unless a preservative  spit   is   used   in  their  attachment.     Such   a   snail-like  method of handling mails is an  insult  to all intelligent residents of this   district, and a rough lock upon the entire  social   and   commercial   life   of    the.  Boundary.    It could   be   remedied in  a day if the proper kind   of gray matter restted within the upper stopes   of  those   who   think they know how   to  operate a postoffice department.  The Boundary and many other parts  of the interior have suffered through  an ofttimes inefficient mail service, and  it is about time we adopt the tactics of  the mule. We have been lambs too  long, and meekness has no more impression upon ordinary government  officials than a toothpick would upon  a dyke of granite.   They are so dense,  ication. These people, however, are  none the less friends to this remedy.  They have have done much towards  making it a household word by their  I personal rtcoinmendation to friends  and neighbors.

In the early days of the Kootenay  and Boundary, when mining in British  Columbia was a new thing to eastern  Canadians, there was a great deal of  gambling in shares in companies formed for the alleged purpose of developing claimsin British Columbia, especially  during   the  period  of   Rossland's  great boom.    We say alleged, for it is  now well known that many of the promoters of those operations, which had  their being  largely on   paper, did   not  put a tithe of their share receipts into  the ground���and evidently never  intended to  do  so.    By flaring advertisements in Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton and  Winnipeg papers, they sold  shares everywhere, to the butcher, the  baker, the candlestick maker, the merchant,   the   manufacturer, the  widow,  the   orphan, etc.    All were   fish   that  came to their net, and but a small per  centage   of   the   cash  British Columbia.  it will stay there.    This need not have  happened,   had che eastener of means  looked at the question in its right light.  There is no more ore in British Columbia today than four or five years ago,  nor is it more valuable.    Mining has  been bronght to a more "stable   basis,  it is   true, but this  could   have   been  done just as well through Canadian as  through American methods.    It is to  be .hoped that our friends in the eastern part of the Dominion have learned  thelesson that the inherent wealth of this  province is as great as that of any other  part of the world-���the  best  proof of  which is the beginning of the payment  of profits by the largest mining  companies in the province.  There are still  goiden oportunities for capital, and   if  safeguarded, it will yield vast returns in  the future  ing as a rule that nothing but continual  prodding will wake them up to a sense  of duty and justice.    Fallen into a rut  of routine, flanked on one side by red  tape and upon [the other by politics,  the public can roast in brimstone until  .they are ready.    If the people in this  vicinity will kick often enough the mail  service between Greenwood and Phoenix will  eventually   be  remedied.    If  every   individual   in   the  two    camps  drops   a  card   every day, roasting the  service, to   the  postmaster-general  at  Ottawa the district'.will soon get  what  it is   entitled   to.

It  may be  a  surprise to many   to  learn that a severe cold can   be   completely  broken up in one or two days'  time.    The first symptoms of a  cold i  are a dry, loud cough, a profuse watery I  discharge   from   the  nose, and a thin,  white coating on the   tongue.      When  Chamberlain's cough remedy is taken  every hour on the  first appearance of  these    symptoms,   it  counteracts   the  effect of the cold and  restores the system   to   a  healthy condition within a  day or two.

THE COMFORTABLE WAY.  S. F. & N. RY.  Daily  Leave  9:00 a.m.  PHOENIX  Of course, the crash came, as come  it must for all such  mushroom  concerns, and the gullible ones and their  friends   were  sore  regarding   British  Columbia   investments ��� which   was  most natural.    The fair name of this  province   was  dragged   in   the    dust,  financially speaking, and all because a  few conscienceless promoters succeeded in ^getting  the ear of the receptive  public, who did not stop to investigate,  separatihg them from  their  money, in  any way, being the object.  One  immediate result  of this   unfortunate state of affairs was that purse  strings were tightened in   many quarters, and   for  any one living  in   this  province   to  secure  cash   in    eastern  Canada for a mining  or  other  enterprise in British   Columbia, no   matter  how legitimate, was next to impossible  for  several  years.    They  pointed   to  the past history of the promotors, and  forgot all about the legitimate   mining  that was always being done here, then  as now, and looked around for other  fields for investment not one whit better,   to   Mexico, to   Cuba, etc., where  millions were spent in new enterprises,  The chartered banks stopped loaning here to a large extent, and practically only the man who had the cash  in his pocket, and plenty of it, could  proceed with his enterprises, no matter how much they promised, nor how  conservatively they were laid out, nor  by whom endorsed.  Herein lies the inconsistency of the  Briefly, here are two energetic cities,  each of perhaps 1,500 to 2,000 popu-  u~j I lation, scarcely five   miles  apart, con-  ever reached ,   ,     J     , , .,  1 nected   by  Canada S  greatest  railway  system, doing business with each other  continually, with a stage line running  365 days in the year for the last eight  years, and yet it requires two days for  mail  matter to   pass   from one city to  the other.    Two whole days; 48 hours  to traverse  a  distance   that  one  can  walk in an hour or drive in 30 minutes.  This  is  not   fiction, but   hard,   plain  facts, well known all over the Boundary, and it could be remedied easily and  at no great expenseto the department.  There is an opportunity here lor the  new postmaster-general,    Hon.    Mr.  Lemieux, to do the right thing by the  Boundary, and receive the thanks of  our people.    Our member at Ottawa,  Duncan Ross, although a resident at  Greenwood, and   the chief owner of  the  Boundary   Creek   Times, of that  city, so far as known has never made a  request for this reform.    And yet his  own town of Greenwood would benefit  [ dtrectly  by  having  the mail  service  granted.    Nor-has the Times  raised  its voice for this   request, much  as  it  would   benefit    the   merchants    and  ethers that support that   paper.    The  postoffice inspector, John R.  Greenfield, of Vancouver, understands  the  situation thoroughly, but can do nothing without orders from Ottawa.    He  attempted to  remedy things   partially,  recently,   by  having this   mail    transported over the   Great Northern   between Grand Forks and   Phoenix, but  so far as convenience is concerned, the  effort is an unqualified failure.

Under dale of June  oTh  a circular  letter  was  sent out from the office of  the Dominion Copper Company, Limited, in which the following appears :  o the shareholders of the  Dominion  Copper Company, Limited :  At a meeting of the shareholders of  your   company   held   on   May    12th,  190b,   the   following    resolution   was  adopted :  "Resolved, That the proposition and  plan of the directors of the company  to issue and sell three hundred thousand dollars par value of the company's  first  mortgage  bonds, and  about  two  hundred   and   twenty-eight   thousand  shares of its slock of the par value of  ten   dollars   each, substantially in the  manner and upon the terms and subject   to   the conditions set forth   in   a  notice to the shareholders dated  April  25th,  1906, which is hereby referred to,  be  and   the  same  is in all things approved; and the directors and  officers  of the company are hereby authorized  and directed to execute on   behalf of  the   company an   underwriting   agree  ment of the general form and tenor of  the    draft   agreement   submitted and  read at the shareholders' meeting, with  such modification as to details as  may  >e approved by the company's counsel;  and all or any of the directors of the  company are hereby authorized to sign  such underwriting agreement as under  writers, and   personally to   participate  in any profits or benefits that  may accrue therefrom, notwithstanding  their  positions as directors; and   the   directors and officers of the company  are  further authorized and directed to execute   any   other   instruments, and   do  any and all   other acts,   necessary   or  appropriate fully to carry out the purposes of this resolution."  At a meeting of the directors of the  company held May 15th, 1906, resolutions were passed, pursuant to said  action of the shareholders, whereby  the issuance of the bonds referred to  was fully authorized, and the issue will  be made as follows :  The prior right of subscription is  reserved to the shareholders. The  bonds and stocks are to be sold together,     l.-'ach bond of the  par value  I lorses,  Including  PALACE LIVERY STABLES  MUKDUCK McINTYRE, Prop.  ���till   Livery  Three New  hqmpment,  IS urines.  there W  no   Harness  Shop  in   either Greenwood or f.innd Forks, li;ivc stocked up  wit It   Mat iiess   I'.trls.

It is impossible to offer  any less amount of these securities to  any one individual because the unit  of subscription must be based on tbe  ratio of the amount ot bonds to the  amount of stock to be sold. The  lowest denomination of the bonds  being $ioo, the corresponding aliquot  portion of stock is 76 shares.  The price for a bond of the par  value of $100, and 76 shares of ac-  companyidg stock, is $229.80, as of  June 1, 1906. The interest coupons  maturing June 1, 1906, annexed to the  bonds, will be detached, and the interest accruing between that date and the  time of final payment of subscriptions  will be adjusted and paid at the time of  final payment.  The outstanding stock amounts to  about 270,000 shares of the par value  of $10   each.    'I'he  amount   of   the j  proposed issue is 228,000 shares.   For  the sake of convenience and in order  to offer to   each   of the other  shareholders entitled to participate share for  share of his present holdings, some of  the large shareholders have consented  to waive their right to subscribe lor  their full proportion of these securities.  Accordingly, every holder of 76 shares  (par value $10 each) desiring to do so  will be entitled   to subscribe for one  bond of $100 and '76  shares  accompanying it.    The holder of twice that  amount   ol shares may  subscribe   for  twice that amount   of bonds  and   accompanying stock; and so on.  While any holder of less than 76  shares of stock (par value $10 each)  cannot be definitely assured that he  will receive an allotment, all shareholders are invited to subscribe, if they  see fit, and will receive an allotment,  if practicable, the matter of allotment  having been left by the action of the  shareholders and directors in the unrestricted discretion of the board.  The bonds are payable June 1,  1915, but are redeemable earlier by  the company in the manner provided  therein. The total authorized issue is  $1,000,000, of which $700,000 are  now outstanding.  Pursuant to authority of the shareholders and directors the proposed  issue has been underwritten by a syndicate which has agreed to take all of  the bonds and stock which shall not  be taken by the shareholders.  The subscriptions must be delivered  to the National Trust Company, Ltd.,  Toronto, Canada, with certified check  for fifty per cent, of the subscription  price, including exchange on Toronto,  not later than July 5th, 1906. 'I'he  Trust Co. will issue a temporary receipt for each check received. The  final payment must be made within  fifteen days after notice mailed by the  Trust Co. to the subscribers, advising  them of their allotment and calling for  the balance of their subscriptions.  No subscription can be made for  less than a one hundred dollar bond  and seventy-six shares of accompanying stock.  . The transfer books will be closed on  June 2ist, 1906, at 3 o'clock p. m.  The shareholders of record on that  date will alone be entitled to subscribe,  The books will remain closed till June  28th, 1906, at 10 o'clock a. m. No  shareholder who shall not on or before  [une 2 ist, 1906, have converted his  $1.00 certificates into the present cer  tificates of $10.00 each, will be entitled to subscribe.

Backache, a Warning Symptom  of Kidney Trouble.  Pe-rtt-na Is Invaluable in Such  Cases.  Persons     Who  Been   Cured.  Blylor, 1005 Ohio Btroot, Dos  Mr. J  writes: j  "I wish to atato my appreciation of your oxucllcnt  romedy.  "1 hiivo always onjoyod oxeollent health, exeop'  frequent nud painful attacks   of   hltuldur  trouble, J  which doetors failed to relievo or cure.  "Upon recommendation I used Peruna to my  utter satisfaction, not having had an attack now  tor tour or five years. "���J. lilyler.  h of  dneys Caused  v> Much Suffering.  stroot. ���  Kidney  Cured.  Diseases  WHEN the kidneys become affected  by catarrh, either from colds, overwork, or an extension of catarrh from  some other organ, tlicy fail to perforin  their normal functions.  It is the work of tho kidneys! to excrete from the blood many of tlie poisons  which accumulate in the body.  If the kidneys fail in their work, the  poisons accumulate to such an exten t as  to cause convulsions, which often prove  fatal.  Peruna, by relieving the kidneys of  their congested and catarrhal conditions, leaves them free to act in a  normal manner.  It also strengthens the action of the  heart, equalizing tho circulation of tlie  blood in all parts of the system.  rA. remedy that relieves catarrhal derangements of the  kidneys should certainly be considered  a household remedy.  Peruna   is   such   a     ...  remedy.  High Commendation For Pe-ru-na.  Mr. C. a. Fizer, Aft. Sterling, Ky.,  writes:  "I have suffered with kidney and  bladder trouble for ten years past.  "Last Aiarch 1 commenced using your  Peruna and continued for three months.  "I have not used it since, nor have I  felt a pain.  "/ believe that I am well and I therefore give my highest commendation to  the curative qualities of Peruna."  Neglected catarrh of tlie kidneys is  apt to develop into Bright's Disease or  diabetes, when a cure is almost an impossibility.  Mr. Leopold Itrandl, 210 illeeekci  Brooklyn, N. V., writes:  "I was sick threo months with catarrh  .   of the kidneys and lungs.   I was treated by my  ! home physician and relieved to some extent, but  after I had worked again for two weeks, my old  suffering���backache and pains in tho right lung-  returned. The dreadful cough which bothered mo day  and night lasted six months and no one could help mo.  "I tried threo different patent medicines, without  avail. I could scarcely eat anything and slept only  few hours each night.  ���'A friend told me to take Peruna.   I did so and the  second day my appetite had Improved.    I took a tea- 1  f spoonful of Peruna every hour, day and night,  for I  T three weeks.    Now I have taken five bottles.    I can y  r eat enough for two people and am able to sleep well.  "Whenever I meet a sick person, I advise him to take  Peruna.   I thank you a thousand times for your medicine, as it was the only romedy that saved me.   We  continue to keep It in our family."���Leopold Brandl.  >������.���>������  Wo havo on file many testimonials  like tho ones given here.

Boundary Side Lights  Successful Band 11*11.  Wednesday evening the benefit ball  given by the members of the Phoenix  Fire Brigade Band, took place at  Miners' Union hall, and was one of  the best attended of the season, showing the sympathy of the business people and residents generally with the  plan to have a good brass band here.  'I'he ball room was crowded all the  evening, and the financial resesults  came up to the expectations. During  the evening two pieces of dance music  were furnished by the band itself. Before the dance began the band rendered several pieces, both up and clown  town, and in front of the hall, and the  general verdict was that the music was  most creditable, considering the short  time that the band has had for practice.

The Greenwood Ledge recently remarked: "It is just like going to church  to read the Nelson Canadian."  Whereupon the preacher-editor of  the Canadian replied: "Yes, it is just  like going to to read the Ledge."  In view of these interesting statements, the question naturally arizes,  what does the editor of the Ledge  know about going to church, and what  does the editor of the Canadian know  about .    Both speak feelingly on  the respective subjects.  To Nannie and flavin  They tell me ye're frae Galashiels,  The toon that raised the sturdy chiels;  That used to chase the English de'ila,  Across the Tyne,  And made thetn dance the border reels,  In days lanjf syne.

Ye charmed me mair than I can tell,  Ye ken I come frae Harwick masel;  That toon o' weavers, gay and swell  That oft hae trodden  Across the rnuir bogs, and the fell,  For instance Flodden.  To think aboot it gies ma pain  How many a sturdy, honest swain  Upon aor native muirs was slain  Kicht or wrong.  But will ye no come back again  And gie us a sang ?  A Scot's a Scot, howe'er he's farin,  On taties, sauts, or caller h'errin ;J  For dourness, obstinacy, and darin  He'll aye stand fast.  We've got ane here thatB aye declarin,  That East is West.  Gavin sings he's frae Tobermory ;  He's gnid at either sang or story ;  For instance, now,'take Hielan Rory,  The gawky toon  And yet. brags, he's frae Scotland's glory  Fair Embra toon.  But forty years or mair hae fled  Since last I saw the Tweed or Red.  Last nk'hl brocht memories in ma head  That winna ding.  As soon as Nannie swished her plaid,  And gan tae sing.  But guid bye. if I may ca ye friends  An may heaven on your wants attend  And may the gods their blessing send  On both together  And lead ye wi a loving hand  Back tae the land o' heather.  ���Hy Stewart Scott, Mayor of MonUn, Manitoba  MAHARA'S  Challenge Band and Orchestra  Will give a street  parade.
