Some 500  serious   operations   have  been   performed.     More   than    250  cases of hernia have been   operated  on with full success; 200 abdominal  operations have been performed; 50  cases of trepanning, all very delicate,  have given the best results.    Owing  to   the   very  strict    hygienic    precautions, the hospital, has   escaped  from any infectious disease.  Geo.

The correspondent   states -that   the  celebration   ceased   not   for    thirty  days.     Geo.   Cattanack   wishes   to  be remembered to George Ellis, Jas.

We must remember that every mine was once a  prospect, and without the necessary  development funds to place thepprosi  pecbin the producing class,   there  >would be no new mines.    No one  can see further into the ground than  you  can. -Mining   engineers    and  ^geologists  through  their    training  are able  to  state what might be  i  expected  from  a  mining  prospect  considering  certain  existing    geological conditions.  Thermain points that an investor  should know and which he should  insist upon knowing are data in  regards to title to the property;  whether or not the property is  located in a district of mining possibilities; a statement asi'iptb the  capitalization of the company; the  portioo of capital stock assigned to  the treasury and the standing of the  men at the head of the company.  The-greatest asset of any pr6��j?c=t  cortvpatoy so far as the iuvjstor in  its stock is concerned is the integrity and high sense of honor of the  company officials.

Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so gmt an array ef  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and br^th,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there  are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in. ^province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  �� that ,s not either, equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure.of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  V.eW|of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound i���,this district'.'  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold d.scovery in Greenwood, while' in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of go\d reserves. It is in.this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated," t-  g-ether with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all '  awaiting the advent of the investor. The title deeds to'these properties, thanks f a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted .f the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the c.urts  of the province. ���  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities ofthe Boundary as an agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of inves igation, and a visit, to^some of its ��� spendidly equipped or-  chards will prove a reve! ation to the stranger. , The highways.throughout the Boundary makes.this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the constructio.i of government roads.  No localityis betcer served with * railroads  than  the Boundary district.      At  present this section  is served ;by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the '  Q.,JP.

Still, the acqua pura  conveyors refuse to bulge from a  recent resolve to be good. However, Billy is most optimistic. and  refuses to have his ardor for doing  good dampened by anything else  than a busted main, notwithstanding reports of warm weather.  Last Saturday's movie show was  comfortably packed, the result of a  recent change in the film service.  One of the funniest Chaplin films  ever exhibited evoked roars of  laughter, even from the most staid,  while a decided improvement was  apparent in the "heavy" stuff. If  plans under way mature, in the near  future, patrons of this show may  expect three or four decidedly costly  improvements.  Tangible evidence of the   mother  and sister love work carried   on   by  the Woman's Patriotic society came  to light this week upon  the   receipt  of the sum of five dollars by Mrs. J.  A. Morrin from Mrs. E. P..Shea,   a  former   resident,     now    living    in  Seattle.    Mrs.   Shea-'donated  'this  amount,    asking   ibe   recipient   to  apply it to such purposes as she saw  fit. ' Of course,   there  is   but  one,  with the resultthat the above society,'  in whose behalf Mrs.  Morrin labors  heart  and  soul,   has  its'  treasury  enriched.       ^ - * -   "    '  A,popular.request   was ' acceeded  HOCKEY PENNANTS  PURPLE AND WHITE  Price, 50c. and 75c.

Wass scored 4 of the 7  goals for Merritt, Randall scored 1,  McKibbon 1 and one was kicked in  by a Princeton player. Wass and  Darnell were the stars for the  visitors, and Neill, Waddell and  Murchie for the home team. The  best of feeling prevailed and there  was only one penalty. Herb Neil  will be remembered as the stone  wall defence of the Phoenix team  for several years, until he left for  Princeton where he has worked for  the past year. He is now located  at Greenwood.
