The pipe will disichjai'^e the  water in a bed of sand and gravel-about  350 feet from the well, from thence  the water will percolate through the  sand and gravel to the well.

Last Monday night the Phoenix  junior hockey team went down to  Greenwood to.try conclusions with the  local team, and after a spirited contest  found themselves woisted by a score  of 6 to 4. At the close of the last half,  ihe score stood 4 to 4, whereupon it  was decided to play fifteen r/iinutes  during which time theGreenwood boys  got in two more goals.  'The final match game of the season  was played between the Greenwood  and Phoenix teams here Wednesday  night, resulting iu a scoie of 5 to 2 in  favor of the home team. A. Binei  and L. McKelvie weie the heroes of  the team, being held in high esteem by  their comrades for shooting the goals,  the.former having thiee to his credit  and the latter two. 'This match was  the last of the thiee games with Greenwood, having worsted Grand Folks in  two previous games, thus entitling  them to the championship of the  Boundary.  'The Greenwood team was composed  of Hunter, Medill, Russell, Swayne,  McMillan, Clerf and Aichibald.  'The Phoenix team was composed of  G, Biner, Hudson, McAuliffe, Pierce,  I rainer, McKelvie and A. Biner.  Some time next week Paul Johnson,  manager of the   B.   C.   Copper Co's.

Mr. Johnson has been of-  feied the position of superintendent of  a new smelter soon   to be  erected at  that point by capitalists represented by  Sam I. Silveiman, of Spokane.    Woik  on the copper propeilies ofthe  company has been prosecuted steadily   for  many months.and a large  area of ore  has been blocked out, which will show  a good profit on every ton.  But this is not the only string that  Mr. Johnson has to his bow. A lead  and copper smelter is to be erected at  Sand Point, Idaho, and Mr. Johnson  has been offered ihe superintendency  ol that also. This company is known  as the Panhandle Mining & Smelting  Co., and is located in a rich copper  and silver-lead district, near or on  Pen d'Oreille lake. It is backed by  Indianapolis capital.  Mr. Johnson has not decided which  ol the two offers to accept, and may  superintend the building of both smelters.  SCHOOL INSPECTOR WILSON WAS   HERE .

With the Fernie strike settled  and plenty of coke coming soon, this  section of the province should be a  center' of' the' greatest1 activity "this  spring and summer.  \   X <     1   Editor Smyth of the Moyie,Leader,  v.   , says that the smiles of the people of his  "u    i town expand a little more with each  '-,    A   x    i*s   \ jump in the price of lead.

Adveitiseis find the best papers are  the cheapest.  An ad is like a poultice���must be  made of the right ingredients and put  in the right place to draw well.  The article advertised biings results  commensurate with its meiits. Whether good or bad it advertises itself  wlierevei it is taken by the buyer.  The average person of intelligence is  constantly absorbing infoi mation gained  from advertising, and in one way and  another it is having its influence upon  all, who read trade announcements.  It is comparatively easy to begin an  advertising campaign with a million  dollars and carry it to a successful  conclusion. The trick of,, tricks is to  begin with a dollar and conclude  with a million.  I'he Payne mine, Slocan, has per  fected plans for installing a zinc roasting plant.  A valuable body of ore has been  stiuck in the Ymir mine at the r,000-  foot level.  The Green Mountain mine, neai  Rossland, will spend $25,000 in development.  In the Slocan district the spring  snowslides are beginning to get in then  deadly work.  A large body of ore has been found  upon the 900 foot level ol the White  Dear, at Rossland.  The Uosun, near New Denver, has  recommenced sending its zinc to Belgium in preference to Kansas.  ���"Las't week's ore shipments from  Rossland mines amounted to 7,597  tons, or 76,036 tons for the year.  The Dundee, a Ymir mine, may be  sold in July to satisfy a claim of $24,-  000, due ihe Royal Hank ol" Canada.  A complete aerial tramway has been  ordered for the Oyster-Ciiterion group  in the Lardeau, to be installed in  April.  Operations at the Crofton snieltei  are expected to be resumed at once,  ihere being some 30,000 tons of ore  on hand.  The Princess Royal group on Princess Royal Island has been sold to an  eastern syndicate. The ore iuiis over  Jtoo per ton.  Foui miners���Frank Crilly, A.Caul-  der, E. Gagnon and Robert Savage-  were asphyxiated by gas at the Nettie  I,, mine, in the Lardeau, a few days  ago.  Twenty men are said to be employed on the coal measures recently taken  over from Robeit Wood and associates  by ihe Ashnola Smelter, Ltd , at Rock  Creek.  Once again it is given out that the  Noithport smelter will soon blow in,  run all the iumaces, and perhaps build  two more and put in a converter.  Eastern coke is to be used.  The Trail smelter is reported to be  handling 12,000 tons of ore monthly  from the Wai Eagle and Centre Star  mines. The lead refinery is to be en  larged at once.  On April 1st the Extension coal  mines, on Vancouver Island, will be  closed, and 1,000 miners will lose work.  James Dunsmuir claims he will let the  miners lie idle for two yeais, rather  than have his men affiliated with the  Western Federation of Miners.  D. J.

During 1902, 25 Per ceiU more copper  was used than ever before. The supply  is exhausted.

John  Henry  Is a sporty man-  about-town,    the   very   antithesis   ot  Richard Harding Davis's refined Van  Bibber.   From his account of his experiences at the races with his best  girl, we quote a few characteristic extracts:  When we got to the track they were  bunching the bones for the first race,  so I told Clara Jane I thought I'd crawl  down to the ring and plaster two of  three thousand around among the  needy.  Two or three thousand, and me wltb  nothing but a flve-spot in my jeans,  and-the return ticket money in thatt  "Sure!" I said; "I've got a pipe!"  ���"Well,  I  hope you  won't  smoke tt  near me.   I hate pipes!" She said.  "All right;.I'll take my pipe dowa to  the betting ring and smoke it there!" Z  said, and we parted good friends.  (In front of the band stand he mat m  number of friends ready to give nim  tips on the winners:  Every Breezy Boy I met had a different hunch, and they called me into the  wharf and unloaded.  I figured it out that If I had bet flvo  dollars on each good thing they gave  me I would have lost four hundred  thousand dollars.  Then I ducked under, copped up ���>  stein of root beer, and climbed up again  to the hurricane deck.  "Did you 'bet?" enquired Clara Jane.  "Only seven hundred and thirty dol.  lars," I said; "a mere bag o' shells."  I leave a call tor 7.30 every morning,  and I suppose that's the reason I was  so swift with the figures.  "My! what a lot of money!" said the  Fair One: "do point out the horse you  bet on! I shall be awrully Interested  In thlsracel"  (John Henry picked out a horse at  random, declaring that the only way It  could lose "was for some eore-head to  get out and turn the track around.")  Sure enough, the favorite galloped  Into port and dropped anchor six hours  ahead of the other clams.  I win oyer two thousand two hundred  dollars���conversation money���and Bonnie Brighteyes was in a frenzy of delight;   .   .';.���''  .1 had a nervous chill for fear she'd  declare herself in on the rake-off.  But she didn't, so I excused myself  and backed down the ladder to cash in.  (Still the wary John Henry listened  to the tips and refrained from betting.)  When I got back to the stand I. had  a preoccupied air. The five-spot In my  jeans was crawling around and begging  for a change of scene.    ;J       ::;  When Clara, Jane asked: me how  much I had bet on the race just albout  to start, I could only think of nine hundred dollars.. ".;,,*;,;:"\ '������:������:.���'���>- ������  When she wanted to know which  horse. I pointed my'flnger at every  toad on the tr>ck,.and said: "That one.  ever'therel*'-  It. won.   '���  At the end of the third race I wa��  $19,218 to the good. ..;���  Clara Jane, had It down In black and  white on the back of an envelope. In  figures' that couldn't lie.' '  (John Henry remarked that when  Clara begged him to be content with  his winnings and.not bet any more, he  promised, "but she didn't notice that I  had my fingers crossed.")  I simply had to have a roll to flash on  the way home, so I" took my lonely V  and went out Into the Promised Land  after the. nuggets Maddy had put me  wise to.   . ',.   .'; - ���      ', '..  ! (Pretty Boy was his choice, despite  the fact that the bookmakers told him  he had made a mistake.)  When the horses got away with Pretty Boy In front I started in to stand on  my head, but changed my: mind and  swallowed half the programme.  Pretty Boy at the quarter! Me for  Rector's till they put the shutters up!  Pretty Boy at the half! Me down to  Tiffany's in the morning dragging  tiaras away in a dr y!  Pretty. Boy at the three-quarter pole!  Me doing the free-library gag all over  the place!  But Just as they ame In the stretch  Pretty Boy forgot something and went  back after it.  The roach quit mi cold at the very  door of the safety deposit vaults.  (Of course Clara Jane never guessed  his plight, for he "rushed down among  the ramblers and made a swift touch  for the price of a couple of rides home,"  and on the way back promised Clara  Jane that he would be awfully careful  of his $19,218���conversation money.)
