The Phoenix board of school trus  tees received word from Victoria  Thursday that the money appropriated  by the provincial government towards  the building of a new school is now  available. Steps were at once taken  lo expedite work on the new structure  and if possible the building will be  completed this fall.  The information concerning the  government grant towards the building  of a new school in Phoenix which  amounts to $6,000, being at the disposal of the Phoenix school board,  was conveyed in a telegram from Hon.  H. E. Young, minister of education to  Ernest Miller, ML A. for Grand  Fork?, who has worked diligently for  Phoenix and his constituency in gen  eral since his election last fall.  Early in January  the   school   boaid  and city council   decided that  a   new  school   for    Phoenix   was   absolutely  necessary,  and   an   appeal   should be  made to the government for assistance.  A    petition    setting    forth    the   city's  claims, and asking for a grant of $10,-  ���000 towards the  building  of  a   four-  roomed school, largely signed by citizens, was sent to Mr. Miller to be presented   to   the   government.     As intimated above   Mr. Miller   has   already  procured $6,000 available money, and  it is quite probable a further appropriation will be made.  The SchoolI .Board, which   is, com  grove and T. A: Love, will make every  effort to get work started on the new  school at once, and, if possible, have  the building completed this fall. A  site at the corner of First street and  Dominion avenue is now held under  option. It was originally intended to  erect a four-roomed school, and although the provincial grant has not  been as large as was expected the  original plans will likely be carried out  and a $to,ooo or $12,000 building  erected.  Andy Waugh, a former grocer in  Grand Forks, died recently in Vancouver.  , Born���At Christena Lake, on June  17th, to Mr. and Mrs. O. Johnson, a  daughter.

The Riverside Nurseries at Grand  Forks have issued their price list for  fall orders.  The death of Mrs. Edward Ruckle  took place in Grand Forks on Saturday  last, aged 30 years.  W. Fitzmauric, the operating engineer of the dinky at the Granby smelter, has gone to Calgary.  It is estimated that the yield of fruit  on the Covert ranch, Grand Forks, this  year will amount to about forty carloads.  The new rifle range of the Kettle  River Rifle association at Grand Forks  was used for the first time last Saturday. D. McRae scored the first bulls-  eye at 500 yards.      -  P. H.

Over  one hundred men are employed, and  ore trains from the Granby, Showshot,  Jackpot and Oro Denoro mines together with the numerous gravel trains  passing up and down the ten miles  from Phoenix to Eholt present one of  the busiest locomotive highways in the  country.  The entire ten miles of track is  being raised from eight to ten inches,  the material for grading and ballasting  being brought from a gravel pit, one  mile west of Eholt on the Greenwood  road. One of the largest fills will be  that across the gulch at Five-mile  bridge, near Silica, all the material  being brought up the hill from the  Eholt gravel pit. The old steel is  being replaced by new 80-pound rails  and the new work is expected to cost  upwards of $20,000.  DOMINION DAY PICNIC  AT CHRISTENA LAKE  Odd Fellows Will Run Special  Train from Phoenix  Preparations are under way tor a  big Odd Fellows' picnic at Christena  Lake on Dominion Day, July 1st,  under the joint management of Phoe  nix and Grand Forks Odd Fellows'  lodges.  A special train has been chartered  via the C.P R and will leave Phoenix  early Friday morning for Christena  and will take passengers at all points  en route. The schedule and rates will  be announced later by handbills. It  is expected the train will leave Phoenix about 7.30 and arrive about 10  a.m., and returning will leave the lake  about 8 p.m. A very low rate will be  secured for the return trip.  Everybody is cordially invited to  join the merry throng of picnickers  and spend the Dominion holiday at  the Boundary's famous lakeside beauty  spot, The lake has been made particularly attractive for picnic parties,  and special accommodations have been  arranged ior this occasion. There will  be plenty of dinner and refreshment  booths to cater to the wants of the  "inner man," though any wishing to  bring lunch baskets are invited to do  so. There will be plenty of boats at  the disposal of fishing parties and  others, and an orchestra will supply  music at the dance pavilion throughout  the day.

Mr. Biesel has been one of the ous-  iest men in the Boundary during the  past two weeks, superintending operations at both mines with the long drive  between and getting operations underway on the new wagon road, and our  last week's "article was written after  several unsuccessful attempts to secure  an interview.

GENTS. __*#^  FURNISHINGS  Mine Inspector McGregor of Nelson  was in camp this week on a tour of  Boundary mines.  Granby Consolidated stock still  hangs around $37.50 per share on the  eastern exchanges.  The assurances that the Kettle  Valley line will be built west from Mid  way this fall is already attracting the  attention of mining men to West Fork  properties, several of whom have been  in the Boundary during the past week.  At the Granby smelter two furnaces  were blown out on Tuesday, but two  others were blown in, leaving six in  commission and the regular tonnage is  being treated. Smelter furnaces require repais of some kind every few  months.  Things are humming at the Con-  solidated's No. 7 mine. The four-mile  aerial tram line is abcut completed  and a ground tram between the tunnels  of the mine is now under construction  The new ten drill compressor was pui  in successful operation on Monday and  mine development will now be actively  carried on. There are now about fift>  men employed and within a short time  the properly will be on the producing  list.  Considerable equipment for the enlarging of the two furnaces at the British Columbia Copper smelter has been  delayed in tiansit and as a result the  work has not been going along as  quickly as expected. However, it is  expected to arrive at Greenwood today  and an effort will be made to have the  enlarged furnaces in operation by the  end of July.  Labor Scarce  There is a great scarcity of labor in  the Boundary at present. All the  mines are at present short of experienced miners while the new roadways  have taken all the inexperienced help  and are still short.  try between Cascade and Rossland  with a view of locating a connecting  link for the provincial   trunk roadway.  John Jacobs, who has resided on  Fourth of July creek for a number of  years, and of late has been troubled  with cancer, left Saturday for a sani-  torium at Hot Springs, S.D. His  friends collected $220 to send him for  treatment.  For Dominion Day, the C.P.R. announces the rate of a fare and one-  third for rouud trip.

Patterson, the C.P.R. agent at  Eholt, and Miss A. Robinson, niece of  Alex. Robinson of Grand Forks, were  manied by the Rev. M. D. McKee in  Grand Forks on Tuesday, June 21st.  The young couple are spending their  honeymoon at Banff and other points  in the Rockies.  W. G. McMynn of Greenwood is  recognized as one of the foremost  anglers in the Boundary���but sometimes he hooks a fish and sometimes  its a turkey. While fishing on Boundary creek the other day the genial  angling government agent had baited  his hook with a fly and threw it back  over the fence before casting it into  the water. A turkey was passing that  way and availed itself of the opportunity for a luscious bite, and when  Mr. McMynn drew his line he had a  turkey hooked by the tongue. A consultation was held and a surgical operation decided on, and aside from having an impediment in its speech  through the lack of a tongue the  leathered fish is still enjoying life.  ever, was the music given by the company's orchestra both in the hall and  on the.street.

PRESIDENT  Smoker Tendered F. J. Lynqh  Local Aerie Flourishing  Fred J. Lynch, deputy grand worthy  president of the Fraternal Order of  Eagles in western Canada, was entertained in royal style by the members  of Phoenix aerie in their hall on Friday  evening,  17th inst.  After the lodge proceedings, during  which a number of candidates were  admitted, about 200 invited guests attended a smoker given in honor of Mr.  Lynch. Judge Williams was chairman  and in his apt humorous manner presided over a splendid program, which  included several bouts, vocal and instrumental solos, Welsh choruses and  speeches, the Italian band and Werner's orchestra also contributing selections.  The guest of the evening delivered a  stirring address on the growth of the  Order of Eagles during its ten years'  of existence; it was growing in quality  as well as in numbers, and it was becoming more and more a privilege to  belong to the Eagles. Phoenix aerie  is in a particularly flourishing condition under the presidency of Jos.  Thornton, no less than 7 1 candidates  having been admitted since the first ol  the year, and is still increasing.  The serving of a splendid supper by  Danny Deane brought an enjoyable  evening to a close.  Will See ibe Big Battle  Danny Deane leaves next Thursday  for Reno, Nevada, to see the big  Johnson-Jeffries battle, going ou Smith's  special train from Spokane. The re  port that Mr. Deane is going as special  reporter for the Pioneer is not quite  correct though Danny promises us an  illustrated report of the fight proceedings as viewed from a $25 seat.

McCammon,  who assisted in the program, rendered  solos in particularly good voice, while  John Finlay gave a stirring coronet  solo. Vocal soios were also contributed by Misses Etta Murray and  Bessie Heidman, while Werner's orchestra rendered opening and closing  selections.  It is regrettable that the recital did  net receive a larger attendance of citizens. Musical talent receives too  little encouragement in Phoenix.

Phoenix school closes on June 30  for the summer vacation.  made to get Greenwood, through ber  member, to build a good road, said  Mr. Biesel. A road was built which  was little better than a trail. This will  result in practically all of the business  of central camp being turned from  Greenwood to Phoenix. All men for  the property will be employed at Phoenix, all supplies will be purchased in  this city, and Mr. Biesel expects the  building of the new road to No. 7 mine  to result in increasing business for  Phoenix generally.  At present there are 45 men employed on the new wagon road, 30  working from Hartford Junction and  15 from the other end. At least fifty  more are required, and an effort will  be made to have it completed in 30  days. A. B. Calhoun, engineer at the  Snowshoe, is in charge of operations  under Mr. Biesel.  ��1^S_J_ra_S__S_i_i_S___5ES__S__r_j_S_^  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

In this' connection Mr.' Sifton ��� said in part:   "The  physical strength of the people is the  resource from'which all  others derive  value. ��� Extreme and" scrupulous regard  for thelites and health of the population   may   be   taken   as   the   best  criterion of the degree of real civilization and refinement to which a country  has' attained. - It cannot be said  that  it has received  too much  attention,  though'the Provinces, the Dominion,.      .  and the municipalities hare health laws'COa '  and health-administration* all'"Jibing  effective anduseful work.    There are,  however,' many-branches  of the.subject, general in their character, which  merit attention.  The Dominion spends  hundreds of-thousands of dollars  in  eradicating the diseases of animals, and  the 'work, it'' is  pleasing  to know, is  being done with  thoroughness:    But  no  similar effort  is   being  made  by  Province' or Dominion  to  meet  the  ravages   of 'diseases' among' human  beings, such, e.g��� as'tuberculosis."  That there is a great work to be  done in'checking the inroads of tuberculosis is evidenced by the mortality  statistics of < the last census. In the  census ^year there were 9,709 deaths  from the disease in Canada. Or, in  other words, twelve deaths out of 1 every  hundred'in that year were due to tuberculosis. And yet tuberculosis is  classed' by "modern medical science as  a preventable disease  The germ of the Canadian navy is  rapidly developing into a lively organ*  ism. The cruiser Rainbow, it is announced, will in a month start from  Portsmouth - for -the Pacific - coast -of  Canada, after having been thoroughly  overhauled and inspected under the  authority of the British Admiralty.  The cruiser Niobe will in two months  leave Portsmouth for Halifax. Each  warship will carry a full complement  of British officers, who will serve in the  Canadian navy for two years, and a  "skeleton" crew, of which the members  will be engaged for five years. It ts  not expected that it will be difficult to  obtain the necessary officers and men  in Canada when it becomes necessary  to enlist them.

UNBURN,  BLISTE rs,  SoreFeet.  I ^Everybody  am Buk  Smuggling it Midway  The good people of Midway have  been much stirred up the past week  over the disclosure of several small  smuggling deals. Tom Hardy runs a  store at Midway and when his prices  soar too high, or his brand of goods  does not come up to the standard, the  citizens of Midway go over to Bob  Brown's at Feny and buy their groceries. It seems that some of them re  port to the custom house and pay the  duty on their purchase, but others have  been in the habit of "passing up" th  custom house. Without the knowledge  of the local custom officer, a "spotter"  was recently sent out by the government, and as a result the majority of  Midway's citizen's have been called up  on the carpet and fined in small  amounts for smuggling. The merch  andise taken across the line was in  small amounts of groceries such as a  person would carry in his hand. It  was the concensus of opinion in Midway that the matter was investigated at  the instance of Mr. Hardy.  Phoenix Railway Timetable.  C  P. R.

McKAY & SONS  With the announcement that con  struction work on the Kettle Valley  railway up the west fork of the river  will commence next month and will be  carried on actively throughout the fall,  it is confidently expected that by the  end of the year the rails will be laid to  a point forty miles west of Midway, en  route to the coast.  The advent of the railway will not  only prove a boon to the splendid  ranching valley west of Midway, but  will open up transportation for shippers  and encourage the development of  valuable mineral claims, where good  ledges have been demonstrated but  were too far from railway facilities to  warrant further development.  L. Reinecke headed a Dominion  geological survey party last fall which  examined the silver-lead deposits and  Hold occurrences on Wallace mountain,  close to Garini and Beaverdell on the  west fork of the Kettle river, about 50  miles distant from Midway. The information obtained during the limited  lime occupied in making that somewhat superficial examination is only  sufficient to allow of the more striking  features being outlined. The survey  party resumed field work early this  month for the purpose of making a  geological and topographical map to  accompany the general report of the  survey department on the Boundary  district.  Now that railway construction  through this west fork is to be under  taken, the action of the survey in getting attention to the mineral resources  of the parts best known and most accessible is timely and will be much  appreciated by those interested in the  development of the mining properties  and the utilization of the ore bodies  occurring there.  The following is an abstract of a  paper by Mr. Reinecke on the West  Fork district, which was read at the  recent meeting of the western branch  of the Canadian Mining Institute.  BEAVERDELL CENTRE OF DISTRICT  ;..',; .VJMineraKclaims,.were,located in the  part of the West Fork country now  under notice as long ago as 1889, but  there was not much prospecting work  done there  until  the  period   between  has been in progress on a small scale  from 1900 to data. The Carmi mine  was worked in 189910.1901, and again  in 1904, but since the last mentioned  date it has not operated. .���'������''���"','"���'���  "The hill tops around Beaverdell  reach to an altitude of from 1500 to  2000 feet above the valley of the West  Fork. The hills are in general broad,  flat-topped ridges, and are thickly  covered with timber. The mining  properties on Wallace mountain are  reached from Beaverdell by a switch-  back wagon road of unusually low  gradient.  "An extensive mass of granodiorite  underlies the West Fork from a point  about eight miles above Beaverdell and  for some distance to the south of that  place. The country rock on Wallace  mountain is of similar character. The  ores consist of galena with silver and  zinc sulphides, ruby silver and grey  copper. These are associated with  quartz, pyrite, and in rare cases, arsen-  opyrite. Native silver occurs near and  in certain fault planes, while oxidized  ores���silver chlorides���are some times  found near the surface. The veins  vary in width from thin stringers to as  m >ch as 10 feet. In some parts of the  Sally mine oxidized ores have been  found to a depth of 75 feet, but in  general the fresh sulphide ores are  found near the surface and thence  downwards.  SALLY K CONSIDERABLE SHIPPER  "On account of the comparatively  small footage of underground develop  ment work so far done it is not possible  to determine variations in character or  value of ores  relative  to   their  depth  from the surface.    Ore has been taken  out, .which after hand sorting, has aver-  (aged in value $300 per ton; then again  the lode has been found almost barren.  The occurrence of, pay ore along a vein  is, however,  fairly regular.    The  Sally  mine, with approximately 2000 feet  of  tunneling, has shipped nearly 700 tons  of ore of an average value of more than  $100 per ton; while, there   was   placed  on the dump about 4000   tons  of ore  having an average value  of about   $25  per ton.     The high cost of  hauling to  Midway under existing   conditions has  1896 and. 1900.    The production of ore I prevented the utilization   of the  latter.  W-  an waste is one  difference between  good and poor flours.  The food part of flour is "protein."  Protein makes bone, muscle and  brain.���There is no protein in bran.  ���bran is the outside part, the husk  or "bark" of the wheat  ���bran is the part of the wheat which  is absolutely without food-value to  the human system.  ���bran represents part of the difference between Royal Household Flour  and whole-wheat flour or cheap, inferior flours that are poorly milled  and not thoroughly purified.  ��� No other flour in this country is so  thoroughly and completely separated  from the waste as is "Royal Household," because no other mills are so  well equipped"or exclusively devoted  to the production of scientifically pure  flour as Royal Household mills.

The claims sufficiently  developed to admit: of their shipping  ore are within an area'of something  like three square miles on the western  and southern slopes of Wallace mountain. The Sally mine is three miles by  wagon road from Beaverdell; and 1500  feet higher than that* town, / while the  claims on the far side of Dark creek  are about two and a half miles east  of the Sally, so are nearly twice as far  from Beaverdell. ^        ;        . ,��� -  WAGON    HAUL TOO COSTLY  On the western slope of the mountain the workings are drifts along the  veins, while in other pans of the mineralized area shafts have been sunk  from to too feet and the ore taken  from drifts and stopes opened from the  shafts. The aggregate quantity of ore  shipped from three of the mines, according to the. information obtained  from owners or managers of the properties, is 925 tons, having a total value  of about $98,000, The proportion  of values are about as follows : Sally  group, $73,000; Bounty fraction and  the Duncan, about $16,000, and the  Rambler, a little better than $9500,  Ore has been shipped from the Bell  mine but the quantity could not be ascertained.  "A serious drawback to the mines  of this camp is the high cost of transportation. Freight to the Trail smeller and treatment charges amount to  $30 to $35 per ton; of this $15 per  ton is charged for the haul to the railway terminus at Midway. On account  of these high costs there is little if any  profit in mining and shipping ores of  less than $100 per ton average value.  Railway connections through to Beaverdell, and the erection of a concentrator  to take the place of the slow and expensive hand sorting of ores, would  greatly facilitate opening and turning  to profitable account the silver bearing  ores of this camp.  CARMI EQUIPPED WITH   MILL.  "As the Carmi mine was filled   with  water when   visited   it   was   not   practicable to  get information   relative to  it    by   an   underground   examination  From  what could   be seen   from   the  surface outcrops  and  the  ore on   the  dump it was noted   that the ore con  tains zinc blende,   chalcopyrite,   pyrite  (probably gold bearing) and galena  in  a gangue of ferruginous  dolamite.     A  small quantity-- of -molybdenite  is   also  present.    The  ore   occurs   in   a   vein  from two  to  four   feet   in   width,   the  country rock being similar to  that prevailing on Wallace mountain.    On the  western end  of  the  property a  shaft  was sunk for  a  distance  of   133   feet,  and from this some 200 feet of drifting  was done.    There is also another shaft  40 feet and a tunnel   86  feet  long  on  the property.    A  ten stamp   mill   was  erected in 1904 and some 400 tons of  low grade ore, which had   been  sorted  from   that   shipped    earlier,   was   put  through the mill.    The ore   shipments  alluded to were made  in   1901,   when  885 tons were shipped to the  smelters  at Greenwood and Boundary Falls, the  average value being $26  in  gold  and  silver per ton.  "Promising showings of ore, both  silver and copper, have been opened  elsewhere in the West Fork valley, but  these also await the provision of railway transportation and other facilities  indispensable for the mining and shipment of the mineral products of the  district that will leave a fair margin of  profit to those who shall engage in  mining enterprises here."

Peruna contains no maglo and does  not operate in any mysterious way, but  It does help Nature to combat disease,  and thus many times comes to the rescue of the patient in some important  crisis.  There is always a time In the course  et any disease when a little help goet a  great way.
