Another car of high grade ore is to  be shipped from the Strath more mine,  being already on the dump.  Owing to a break at the air compressor of the .Providence mine last  week, operations at that property have  been curtailed for the time being,  The electric hoist is to be installed  at the Crescent fraction mine next  month, and some of the Chicago  officials of the company are also expected here in April.  Owing to fuel and car shortage,  Dominion Copper's shipments and  smelter treatment for February were  between 7,000 and 8,000 tons���less  than half the present capacity of the  smelting works.  Several cars of sulphide ore have  been shipped by the B. C. Copper Co.  from the Morrison mine, Deadwood  camp, where some 25 men are at  work. The property is owned by the  Dominion Copper Co.  Payment of the last $3,000 on the  $30,000 bond on the Skylark by the  Skylark Development Co., which was  not due till April 1st, has already been  made to the Butte owner, from the  proceeds of ore mined and shipped.  Last Monday was payday in Phoenix camp, being small as compared  with the iast few months, on account  of railway and smelter fuel shortage.  About $55,000 was paid out here in  wages aione by the Granby, Dominion  and Snowshoe mines. Next month's  'roll is likely to be considerably larger,  as the forces are being increased.  Scarcely has erection of the big steel  furnace building at the Granby smelter  been finished before the announcement comes of a new and costly piece  of reconstruction work which is to be  undertaken this summer. The work in  question is the building and erection of  a mammoth steel flue chamber involving the purchase of 250 tons of steel,  the order for which has just been placed  in the East.  TWOFCRNACES  NOW IN BLAST  B. C. Copper Smelting  J 200 Tons Daily,  MUCH IMPRESSED  WITH THE BOUNDARY  Believed That   Most of  Troubles are Over.  the  COMING AND GOING  This week Monday Acting Manager  Beardsley succeeded in getting the second furnace of the British Couunbia  Copper Co.'s new smelter in blast, and  it is the hope and intention that, from  now on, at least two of these large  furnaces shall be kept in operation  continually, and later the third will be  blown in.  It is well known   in   the  Boundary  that this company   has been   working  at great disadvantages for  some  time  past, as, in   fact,   have all   the   smelters, on account of .car and fuel   shortage on the part ofthe railways, coupled  with   the  severe   winter weather.    It  was fully' expected   last  spring,   when  the old smelting plant of the B.C.Cop-  per Co. was dismantled, and work was  begun on the new and larger  modern  plant, that smelting would be resumed  in September or October at the least.  But delays in the delivery of  machinery, material, etc., all operated against  the prompt resumption of copper making, and it was early winter when   one  furnace   was   started.     Then     more  troubles seemed   to  accumulate,   particularly those with the  railways,  and  only now has the plant been placed in  what is believed to be steady and  uninterrupted operation.  As showing what a difference delays  of this kind can mean to a mining company it is understood that the company would have netted at least  $600,000 more than it did earn, if it  had been possible to operate at fullest  capacity since last September, Meantime, the heavy expense of reconstruction was proceeding and it was recently decided, as announced, that the  capital stock of $2,000,000   would   be  Dakota   Man   Visits the Big;  Properties.  Last Monday L.W. Keyes, of Davis,  South Dakota, was a visitor here, representing large interests in the Alliance  Gold and Copper Mining Co.�� a Minneapolis corporation, accompanied by  Harry H. Shallenberger, of Spokane,  manager for the company. ,Mr. Keyes  visited the company's JMoreen . mine,  Deadwood camp, where a 25 h. p.  electric hoist is just being installed.  For a short time past work has been  suspended on the Moreen, pending  the putting in of the new machin  ery, but from this on development will  be steadily prosecuted, the showing  thus far being very encouraging to the  syndicate of Minnesota capitalists who  are behind the enterprise. It is understood that sufficient money is available for two years of uninterrupted development.  While in the Boundary, Mr. Keyes  inspected the B. C. Copper Co.'s  Mother Lode mine and smelter, and  also the Granby mines, and was much  impressed with the magnitude of the  operations, in the way of copper pro  ductiori, as they are carried on in the  Boundary. The gentlemen left Tuesday morning for Spokane, Mr. Shallenberger intending to return shortly. Mr.  Keyes has been away from home since  the middle of January, travelling  through the southwestern states and  California. He literally went from  Phoenix, Arizona, to Phoenix, British  Columbia.  ASSOCIATED  BOARDS MEET  In Annual Convention  At Greenwood.  Delegates Were Present From  All Over Kootenays.  laaaaajaaaai  Rev. Faiher J. A. Bedard left here  on Monday's train to spend the week  in Spokane  G. T. Moir, formerly of Sandon, the  new C.P.R. agent in Phoenix, arrived  on Monday with his family.  Rev. J. H. White, superintendent of  Methodist missions, was a visitor here  last week Friday and Saturday.  W. Y. Williams, after spending nearly a week in and around Phoenix, returned to Spokane on Monday.  J. M. Fox, of Nelson, travelling  freight agent for the C.P.R., was here  Thursday on his  monthly visit.  Mrs. L. L. DeVoin and little daughter started Saturday for Seattle, where  they will visit Mr. DeVoin's mother.  Jas. McNicol, who' has been a member of the Pioneer staff since November, left Monday for his ranch at  Dubuc, Sask.  L.A. Manly, who is leaving to settle  in Victoria, was tendered a farewell  banquet by citizens of Grand Forks on  Wednesday evening.  P. W. Tierney, the C. P. R. contractor, who expects to start work on  the Rawhide spur extension riext week,  was a visitor here Thursday.  R. H. Barnhart, of Nelson, who is  representative of the Snowshoe Gold  and Copper Mines, Ltd., for smelter  shipments, etc., was in camp Wednes-  day.  James Marshall and bride arrived  home last week Friday, and were given  a reception that evening by their many  friends at Miners' Union hall, the time  being passed in dancing.  E. W. Fox, has arrived from Spokane to take the position of accountant  at the Snowshoe mine. L. E. Cole,  who has been at the Snowshoe, will  go to Rossland after a trip to the  coast.  William S. Macy came up from Spokane Saturday, returning Wednesday.  He states fie is now catering to about  300 men at his Nine Mile boarding  house, on the Spokane river below  Spokane.  P. F. Roosa, paymaster for the Dominion Copper Co., was up from  Boundary Falls Monday on his monthly  trip for the distribution of pay checks  to the company's several hundred employees.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., who  went away about three months ago for  his health, is now on his way back  lrom Vichy, France, and report has it  that he is much improved.  Rev. J. P. Bowell, bursar of Columbian college at New Westminster,  arrived Wednesday evening on a trip  through the interior in the interests of  that well known institution, having  more students than ever before.  being put into effect, the first sub  scriptions to the new shares being received by the company's officers from  present shareholders, in preference,  this week.  Advices from New York   state  that  the new board of officials  is   a  strong  one, and that they are taking hold   of  the company's business in a thoroughly  comprehensive and businesslike manner.    Colgate Hoyt, the new president  and a large shareholder, a  short   time  ago caused an exhaustive  examination  to be made ofthe company's properties  by   a   competent   engineer.    Among  other things, his   engineer  reported  a  total of 2,000,000 tons of oie in sight  in the company's  Mother Lode mine,  this being but one of the mines owned.  The average yield of this ore was given  1.23% copper,   .05   ounces  gold,  .23  ounces silver, which would give a gross  value of $7 per ton on a   20-per   cent  copper market.    The engineer also estimated that the ore could  be   mined,  smelted and all   other   expenses   paid  for $3.97 per ton, resulting   in   a  net  profit of approximately $3.00 per ton.  Two weeks ago S. C Holman   took  the position of acting   engineer   while  Frederic Keffer was   in the  east,   and  Mr. Holman has had his hands   more  than full in getting the   necessary   sulphur fluxing ore out and to the smelter  in  good   time.    Mr.    Holman  being  familiar with the   Mother  Lode   mine  itself, from several years'  service  with  the company there, believed  he could  get  enough   sulphide  ore   from   that  property temporarily, and succeeded in  doing so, running one  furnace  at  the  smelter for a   week   on   nothing   but  Mother lode ore.  Meantime special efforts u ere made  to get the company's Napoleon ore to  the railway, notwithstanding the fearful condition of the wagon roads generally during the spring break-up���the  new tramway from the Napoleon not  yet being in working order, 'l'he efforts  were successful, and Napoleon ore is  coming in now moie or less steadily.  In addition to this, by special arrangement by Mr. Keffer with the Dominion  Copper Co., Mr. Holman started work  on the Morrison mine, Deadwood  camp, a mile and a half from the railway, and here again sulphide ore is  being taken out and shipped, thus  easing up the flux;ng proposition as far  as sulphur is concerned.  This week the company's smelter  has been treating upwards of t,2co  tons of ore each 24 hours, and if nothing unforseen happens ihis will continue from now on uninterruptedly,  the company thus being able to make  something like $3,500 per day or  $100,000 per month, w th trvre in  sight when the third furnace can be  blown in.  MAN WITH MANY HONORS.  Grand Muster Simpson  Visits  Odd   Fellows'  Lodfet.  F. E. Simpson, of Cranbrook, as  giand master for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows 01 British Columbia, spent several days in the Boundary  this week, making official visits to the  several lodges in this section. Tuesday  he visited Boundary Valley Lodge at  Greenwood, Wednesday he was with  Grand Forks lodge, and last night he  was present at a special meeting of  Snowshoe f odge No. $6 of Phoenix.  Mr. Simpson states that the I.O.O.  F. of British   Columbia is   in   a very  flourishing condition, the branches  of  iiicreased to $3-,oo^boo,-vhicb-is- now1 the order in the province showing sub  stantial growth every year and doing an  increasing amount of good in the several localities. It is his intention to  visit every lodge in the province on  this tour.  Few men in the province hold as  many offices as Mr. Simpson. In addition to being head oi* the Odd  Fellows, he is president of the Alberta  Press Association, and secured the  meeting of that organization for Cranbrook for this year; he is also provincial Liberal organizer for the interior.  Besides this, he is editor and proprietor  of the Cranbrook Herald, an eight  page weekly that has the reputation of  being the best in the province, with a  circulation of more than r,ooo copies  each issue. It can be readily noted  that the "Old Man" does not have time  hanging heavily on his hands.  The Associated Boards of Trade  Southern British Columbia met in annual ssssion this week at Greenwood.  Inasmuch as the Phoenix Board of  Trade has been asleep for the last year  or two, notwithstanding the good work  it accomplished previous to that, it  was not represented at the meeting,  which is described as one of the most  important that has taken place in the  last eight years. Nearly all the Kootenay towns of importance, however, had  delegates there, including Nelson, Kaslo, Rossland, Fernie, Moyie and Cranbrook.  G.O. Buchanan, the president of the  Associated Boards, read his annual  address at the first session, which was  held in the court house Wednesday  afternoon, showing what had been accomplished by the organization during  the last year, and pointing out a number of matters that would have attention by the members as a whole. Mr.  Buchanan has been the chief executive  of the Associated Boards for several  years, and has taken a great deal of  interest in this useful organization. In  his annual report Mr, Buchanan added  an appendix in which he estimated the  value of the mineral and lumber produced in Southern Kootenay and Yale  during the year 1906 as follows:  Gold, 210,653 oz., value, $4,213,060  Silver, 2,243,800 oz., value, 1,503,346  Copper, 37,079,000 lb.value, 7,415,800  Lead, 26,389,13410ns, val.. 1,847,269  Zinc, 3,000 tons, value.... 60,000  Coal, 721,000 tons, value... 1,442,000  Coke, 189,400 tons, value...    473i5oo  PACIFIC HOTEL  WAS BURNED OUT  Greenwood Surfers a $10,000  Fire Loss.  At 2 a. m. Thursday fire broke out  in the kitchen of the Pacific hotel in  heart of Greenwood, and before the  flames were subdued the hotel, a three  story building owned by Grieg & Morrison, was gutted, the loss being estimated at $10,000 with $5,000 insurance. 7  When the alarm was given Mr. Morrison, who was  on  duty, immediately ���  notified all  the sleeping  guests of the  house,  and   they all  escaped   safely,  though some of them were naturally in  (pretty scanty attire, and most of them  lost a large part of their personal belongings. Tbe fire brigade did good  work in fighting the flames and it is a  wonder that neither of the frame buildings adjoining the Pacific on either side  were destroyed, while the Pacific hotel  itself, with the furniture, is practically  a total loss and will have to be entirely  rebuilt.  Howard Moore was lessee of 1 he  kitchen and dining room of the Pacific, and his loss is estimated at some  $800. When a sheet of flame shot up  back of the range, it filled the kitchen  so quickly that the employees were  driven out to save their lives. Both  Mr. Greig and Mr. Moore resided in  Phoenix for several years, and are well  known throughout the Boundary.  Total value minerals.. .$16,954,975  Lumber, 146,000,000 feet,._ 2,044,000.

Romance ol a Qlrl-Wlle Wbo Came ��� Siraagcr  to Phoenix.  About three weeks ago a young girl  of 17 years arrived in Phoenix, who  proved to be Mrs. W.H. Stewart, from  Buffalo Centre, Iowa, having come  here to join her husband, a young man,  the girl being a bride. When she arrived she discoverdd that Stewart had  tried to obtain work here, but as it was  at the time of the fuel and car shortage men were being laid off, and he  secured but one or two shifts. She  had come without notifying him,  expecting to surprise him. She was  an entire stranger but was taken in by  a good Samaritan here and lived with  his family till she found her husband,  who had'started for other fields without leaving his address, not expecting  her. It appears that she was a school  girl at home, of a good family, and the  two had married against her family's  wishes, Stewart immediately starting  west to seek his fortune. Her family  did not like it; and practically kept her  a prisoner, but she escaped and came  direct to Phoenix, where he had written  from. .        ���  It took some time to locate Mr.  Stewart, as mail from him had to go  back to Iowa and then be forwarded  here, and the girl's parents did not  help the matter. Finally, however, he  was located at Wilkinson, Was!;., near  Tacoma', and yesterday Mrs. Stewart  left on the Great Northern to join him,  a happy girl-wife, and grateful to the  friends she unexpectedly i found in  Phoenix. ,  *WH**��****0&��**m��&.aw��m0&0frj*m *)*��-9+9*&B>9-����**+*+9-9* ;*>***,  HE1NRICH WON WRESTLING MATCH.

Put Bulb Men on tbe Mat With Comparitively  Little Trouble.  Tuesday evening Joe Heinnch met  Harry Quinn, the cage tender at the  Granby mines, and M. P. Bradley, of  the Snowshoe mine, and threw them  both twice well within the 60 minutes.  A couple of Hindoos with unpronounc-  able names furnished the preliminary,  neither getting a fall in three minutes.  Quinn was the first victim, it taking  just 7 minutes for Heinrich to; put  him on the mat. Then Bradley look  hold and lasted for 17 minutes. Quinn  then had his second turn, and  again he held out for 7 minutes before  being put down. In Bradley's second  attempt Heinrich fixed him plenty on  short notice, putting him on his back  in exactly 30 seconds. Thus the exact wrestling time for the four bouts  was 31 1-2 minutes. A fair house was  present, Danny Deane making an acceptable referee to all parties.  It is understood that C. H. Flood,  formerly chief of police here, is willing  to meet Heinrich in a wrestling match  here, and if terms can be arranged, the  match may occur in about six weeks.  Frederic    Keffer is President.  The following are the officers of the  Canadian Mining Institute who were  elected last week in Toronto:  Members of the council���T. XV.

Som�� weeks ago the Pioneer referred  to the British-American Copper Mines  arid Smelter Co., which had begun to  advertise widely the sale of its stock.  The B. C. Mining Record in its Feb  ruary issue, also exposes this concern,  but it continues to send out its misleading advertising. At one time its  ad appeared in the Manitoba, Free  Press,' and now it has been observed  in the Vancouver World. J. C.' Ker-  tnohan Co; of Cleveland, Ohio, seems  -to be boosting the concern, with  Thomas Davies & Co., of Chicago,' as  financial agents.  - .Briefly put, the alleged company  ���states that it has 640 acres of mineral  'claim* in Golden mining division of  .East Kootenay, running 6 or 7 per cent  in copper. The advertisement has a.  number of so-calUd "Plain statements  of fact," and from this we have culled  a-few,- which can be tilled nothing  ���else but plain, simple, everyday lies, as  follows:  Lie No. 1.���"In the heart of the  richest copper district in the world."  There is not a single mine shipping  copper ore, as far as can be learned,  in rhe entire Golden mining division.  Lie No. 2.���"The Granby Co., a  neighbor of ours, is paying 24 per cent  yearly," The Granby mines, are some  250 miles distant, or three days travel  as one must go, and are paying dividends at the rate of 12 per cent per  year.  Lie No. 3.���"Ho physical difficulties." Even when opened up, the  prospects are ten or more miles from  water transportation and several hun '  dred miles from the nearest copper'  smelter,.as the ore would have to go  Lie No. 4���"Begin shipping a��f'  once.?' If the ore is so rich and there"  is so miich of it, why not send it out  by baloon or air ship, and all this advertising to unload shares would be  needless.  These are but a few of the statements noted���there are dozens of  others equally reprehensible. The  company may have some likely copper  prospects somewhere in the wilderness  referred to, which is as yet without  railway transportation, and they may  be worth developing, but there is little  room in British Cohnnbta for such  ;; At no time in its history have the  prospects of the Boundary district had  a brighter appearance, and, barring  any unforseen difficulties, the year 1907  should show a remarkable advance in  the mining and smelting industry ��� of  this section, both as regards actual  profits earned and as regards the advance development accomplished.  This, of course, is due in laige part,  to the present and prospective high  prices of all the metals and to the prosperity that'is general on the American  continent; and those interested here  are using every legtimate effort to take  advantage of the prevailing conditions.  Each ofthe three smelters of the  Boundary is preparing to receive the  benefit of the enlargements that have  been going on for months, but which  have been delayed by the cur and fuel  shortage and the most severe winter  known in many-years. But the troubles  are now nearly all overcome, and a  long season of steady operations, with  plenty of employment for all who care  for it, is now just beginning. The copper story for 1907 in the Boundary  will undoubtedly far exceed that even  for 1906-���which showed a b g advance  over the previous year, ft will spell  prosperity for all:  Net only, however, will the copper  industry benefit frOm this, impetus  which is now beginning to be'frit here  and elsewhere, but all kinds of mining  is taking on new life. Coal mining is  being carried on in British Columbia  as never beforehand the high grade  gold-and silver lodes-of the Boundary  and,other' districts are having an increasing amount of attention paid to  them, with the beet of results in sight  Investors in bonafide shares in Brit  isli Columbia will now begin to receive  some reward for their long wait; in  deed, the Granby shareholders are now  getting *it at the rate of 12 per cent  per annum,  , It  is indeed   a growing  time in this province,   and   conditions  1*>\ ��   ���>..  continue to improve,   with   the   ljkeli-  hood'of this continuing for 0 long time  to come,"   ���  -  '    Our "Copper Corner  Advance In Copper.  As the year advances it. is .becoming  apparent that,the price of copper must  go higher, says the Los Angeles Mining  Review. Unless a mitacle happens,  this year's output will fall below that  of 19067 while demand, is increasing  steadily. From all quarters, now, come  admissions of the fact, long ago evident but accepted with reluctance,  that the world has entered upon a new  era of industrial development in which  electricity and copper must play the  leading parts. -The aluminum ghost  has been laid; The iron., wire bluff  has been called. Consumers have  settled down to copper and common  sense.  Yet with a market that is ideal from  the producer's point of view, copper  will almost surely show a marked decline. If this were the result of failing  ore supplier, there would be serious  cause for alarm. On the contrary, it  may be salely stated that there is now  vastly more ore in sight th'.tn could be  claimed a year ago. Transportation,  difficulties will be responsible to an  extent for the decrease in copper output, but the true difficulty lies in the  labor situation. There are not enough  miners. It follows that there is uneasiness. Demands for higher pay  have occurred and are likely to occur  again. Strikes and shutdowns under  such circumstances are not improbable.  With 2000 men laid off at Butte and  1200 at Bisbee, there can be no maintenance of copper output at last year's  rate of production.  The copper market has been stationary for some weeks, but a further advance seems imment. Quotations are  made by dealers for instant acceptance  only. Demand is growing for uses  where price is, comparatively speaking,  a minor consideration. No one seriously expects copper to go below 25 cents  this year or next. It may well go to  30 cents before  190S.  ;   Champion of the Boundary.  Under the above caption the B. C.  Mining Exchange, of Vancouver, had  the following in its February issue:  The fourth Annual Holiday Number of the Phoenix Pioneer is to hand,  and it is again our agreeable task to  review the publication, which, year by  year, performs such excellent service  to the rich Boundary country and the  mining industry of British Columbia  as a whole.  ��� The present issue consists of no less  that 76 pages  between   the covers, in  addition to a handsome  and  valuable  colored map, drawn  to a scale of  800  feet to the inch.   The book is profusely   illustrated,   and , contains  articles  dealing with all the provincial   mining  ancl.smelting  companies   operating in  ihe district,'besides   a  mass  of  most  interesting and useful   information Jon  the'( resources; and   prospects   of the  Boundary.    On   the  outside .of   the  front cover is an excellent, map, drawn  to scale, of the Boundary district, while,  in addition to the colored map already  referred to, the book containg a   number of other useful   maps,   as  well  as  diagrams of the wotkmgs of the   principal mines. '. :  The public recognition cf the enter-:  prise displayed by   Mr. W  B.

The  B.C.   Mining   Exchange   extends  its  hearty congratulations to   Mr. Willcox  on   this   valuable    publication,    and  recommends earnestly-^as it has done  before���that every man  interested   in  mining  in    British   Columbia  should  secure a copy, either for his   own   reference or to send East as a   testimony  to his friends of the  kind  of mineral  country we have  here.

C.  ���  ���-**.���������...������___*J  A nervous looking man went into a  store the other day and sat down for a  half hour or so, when a clerk asked  him if there was anything she could do  for him, he said no, he didn't want'any-  thing. She went away and he sat an  hour longtr when the proprietor went  to him and asked if he wanted to be  shown anything. "No" said the nervous man,"I just wanted to sit around.  My physician has recommended quiet  for me, and says above all things I  should avoid being in a crowd. Notic-  that you do not advertise in the  newspaper, 1 thought this would be as  quiet a place as I could find, so I just  dropped in for a few hours of isolation."  The Greenwood Times asserts that  the report is current that Mike Kane,  incited by the wise act of his friend  Jimmy Marshall in taking to himself  a wife, has followed suit, and will begin housekeeping in Phoenix.  In his own behalf Mr. Kane denies  the soft impeachment, stating that he  has not .yet been as fortunate as his  friend "Jimmy," he simply having  made a business trip to Spokane at the  time that Mr. Marshall eschewed the  single life.  MS  It is a cold day when Honourable  Rudolph Lemieux, the postmaster-  general of Canada, is not hatching up  somt? new scheme that affects publishers. His latest, a couple of months  ago, was to order publishers to fold  their papers in a certain manner before  mailing. This was under date of January 8th, and was to come into effect  in March, publishers being given till  that time to get new folding machinery,  etc. Such an objection was made, however, by the members of the Canadian  Press association, that a new order  has been issued, extending the time till  July 1 st.  This order might not affect the  smaller publishers to any great extent,  but it means thousands of dollars of  expense to the large concerns. As a  a matter of fact, Mr. Lemieux is new  to the business, and has been forced  to rely on subordinates very largely.  In this connection, it will doubtless be  a good thing if, as mooted, there is a  clearing out of of the mossbacks who  have been in the postoffice department  at Ottawa so long that they have an  idea that they are the real thing. If  Mr. Lemieux had some live men to  assist him, the public in general would  be the gainers.  "It pays to advertise," said Mark  Twain, at an advertisement writer's  banquet.  "When I was editing the Virginia  City Enterprise, writing copy one day  and mining the next, I tried to force  this truth home in many ways.  "A suspicious subscriber once wrote  and said he had found a spider in his  paper. . Was this good or bad luck? I  replied to him in our Answers to Cor-  respoadents columns as follows:  "Old Subscriber:���The finding of a  spider in your copy of the Enterprise  was neither good luck nor bad. The  spider was merely looking over our  pages to find out what merchant was  not advertising, so that it could spin  its web acrooss his door and lead a  free and undisturbed existence forever  after."  Rheumatic Paint Relieved.  B. F. Crocker, Esq., now S4 years  of age, and for twenty years Justice of  the Peace at Martinsburg, Iowa, says :  " I am terribly afflicted with sciatic  rheumatism in my left arm and right  hip. I have used three bottles of  Chamberlain's P.ain Balm and it did  me lots of good." For sale by all  druggists.    The scramble on the part of consumers for copper is more pronounced,  if,anything, than at any time recently.  It seems that buyers are willing to pay  any price for the metal if they can secure deliveries within a reasonable period. Stocks on hand amount to practically nothing. A representative of a  leading copper company states that he  could sell 50,00c,000 pounds of coper abroad an once if he could make deliveries in the first quarter of 1907.  ��5��i  fesfi  ltc>is  *W����izyz  tacM?^  teMOWP^l.  ~?���/'  3u-an  I  sin  iTOHAt'  The undersigned Druggist at the .earnest solicitation of the TPerrol Co.,  Limited, of Toronto, has made a thorough and searching investigation into the  ��� merits of FERROL, and of the nVetlto Is of that Company, and he finds that:  Every cure claimed by the Company is absolutely genuine; that FERROL is  manufactured irom the best quality'of Munn's Celebrated Cod Liver Oil (the whole  ofthe oil) and is richer in oil than any other emulsion, ami while it contains just  the right quantity of the best form of Iron and Phosphorous, it is so scientifically  prepared, that not one in a thousand finds any trouble in taking it; that the medicine  has accomplished the most amazing results in its. own city; that its sales in the Home  City have been phenomenal; that it is endorsed' by all druggists .without hesitation or  qualification; that it is, in short, all the Company claims for FERROL, and more.  The more I investigated, the more enthusiastic I became. It is no  longer a question of my willingness to handle the  preparation���FERROL���but       how can I  bring it to the immediate suffering of this city? \  It is a heavy responsibility, but I have faith in the honesty and fairness of the Ferrol Company, Limited,  of Toronto, and the unequalled merits of their preparation, FERROL. -��       w������*�����'��� '-�����*,:'>-v��4. t t    t~"+  (Signed)     J.    B.    BGYtUC  I find also that the druggists in other cities have taken upon themselves the solemn responsibility of  standing behind this medicine; and that these druggists have made in each city a daring and remarkable  distribution of full-sized bottles. tj�� r  ^ Impressed by the action of our fellow-druggists, and convinced that they would not have given this remedy  such unqualified approval without positive knowledge of its merits, I have decided to follow their example and  distribute free of charge i  100 Large Bottles of FERROL Free to the Sick  WEEK BEGINNING SATURDAY/ MARCH 16  At J. B. BOYLE'S Drug Store, Phoenix; B. C  Maintaining a first-class Drug Store, the above named Druggist occupies a com- -  raanding position in the retail drug trade uf tlii.s city, and almost every rvuiuJy tli:it is uflered  to the public seeks an outlet through lii.s store. But with .in eye Hingle to the interests of  his many patrons he is careful to handle the most reliable preparations. Consequently  when a medicine is recommended and endorsed by this Druggist, that medicine must  have merit. w  The above Druggist, after a rigid investigation, described elsewhere in this announcement, has decided to make, upon his own responsibility, the most remarkable distribution  of medicine evesJ'.attenipted in this city. .Convinced by personal experience of the  extraordinary merits of  FERROL  He haa purchased from the Ferrol Co., Limited, of Toronto, a large number of  bottles of thiB remedy, for free distribution, and he hereby invites every person suffering  from any form of blood trouble ; any person who is run down, discouraged and in need of a  powerful tonic; any person suffering from Coughs. Colds, Bronchitis, Croup and all  Bronchial or Lung Trouble, Chronic Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Insomnia, Loss of Weight  and all wasting diseases ; any person who has sought relief in any other remedy or Cod  Liver Oil preparation, and failed to find it, cut out the certificate printed herewith, fill out  the blank lines, present it at the store on the dates given, and get a bottle of this wonderful  preparation, FERROL, Free.  It was necessary for me to purchase a large quantity in order to have tho privilege of  making this free distribution, and the responsibility assumed by me in this matter, I am  positive will be appreciated by the public, and the immense sales that are sure to follow  will more than compensate me for the expenditure involved.  There is absolutely no sentiment in this endorsement of FERROL. It is merely a  business recognition of a preparation that possesses positive merit, and a keen desire on  th* part of a progressive concern to always supply the best goods at the lowest possible price.  THIS CERTIFICATE,  ' >  Properly filled out and signed, entitles the holder to one large sized  bottle of FERROL (Cod Liver  Oil, Iron and Phosphorus), if presented at J. B.

This  merry concoction of fun, music and  amusing frivolity, was greeted by warm  praise wherever presented last season,  as the jolliest, cleanest and loveliest of  comedies seen in the musical world,  a constant creator of laughter, that is  simply irresistible. The comedy appeals  to all that is refined; the book is not  of the forced kind, while the musical  numbers are all of the jingling, whistling order.
