Installing   Electric    Drive for  Air Compressor.  It is quite evident that this year  things will move with a vim at the  Snowshoe. mine, and that, in a short  time, the ore shipments will be materially -increased, being something like  300 tons per day now. Chas. Biesel  believes in doing things, and improvements are planned that will materially  assist in this work.  As already noted, electric power will  be installed for  been received and placed in use at this  point, being similar to those to be used  by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada at its oilier niin es,  the Center Star and St. Eugene. The  Snowshoe ore is sent to the British  Columbia Copper Co.'s smelter at  Greenwood, where it is understood  there is a contract to treat 75,000 tons,  and part also goes to the Trail smelter.  Boundary Mining Notes  Presentation to W. II   Docksteider.  Last Saturday evening a smoker was  given to W. H. Docksteader, formerly  chief of the fire department, by the  members of the volunteer brigade that  served under him. The event took  place in Miner's Union hall, and was a  pleasant occasion. Speeches and songs  were rendered and enjoyed by the  large number present, and as a testimonial of regard a solid gold locket,  suitably inscribed, wai presented to  Mr. Docksteader by W. X. McDonald,  on behalf of the old members, Mr  McDonald making an excellent presentation speech. Mr Docksteader re-  ponded suitably. This week he left  for Vancouver, where  he  expects  to  driving the air com  pressor as soon as the machinery can I enter the employ of the Canadian  be installed. Besides this, the other Rubber Co,  half of the compressor has been  ordered, and will be delivered as soon  as possible, which will more than  double the present drill capacity ofthe  machinery. The 400-h.p. motor ordered should be on the ground in five  or six weeks, the building to house it  having already been erected. This  will result in a decided decrease in  power costs over steam, which is now  in use. This week the men of the  South Kootenay Power Co. were laying  out the lateral electric feed line, which  will  be a branch of  the   line  to   the  House wm Btfracd Dcwa.  W. D. Parker, who has a ranch  about three miles west of Phoenix on  the Anaconda road, being the old Fay  Spencer ranch, while in the city this  week stated that a few days ago his  house at the ranch was burned down,  entailing a loss-of some $500, with no  insurance. He will rebuild as soon as  possible.. Mr. Parker formerly owned  the first milk ranch below the city, but  sold out to G. A. Mowatt, the present  Emma mine, now running not far from   owner.    At   his  present   ranch   he is  the Snowshoe compressor building.  Another innovation will be electric  haulage for the tunnel level, where the  ore is now being taken from for shipment. In the course of a few weeks a  Jeffrey  electric locomotive   will  have  making a business of poultry raising,  getting 75 cents per dozen for eggs this  last winter. He will also go in for  small fruits on a more or less extensive  scale this summer, the soil being  well adapted for that purpose.  INVENTION BY A PHOENIX MAN  Three cars of ore are out for shipment already at the Riverside group, a  few miles from Midway, on which work  was recently started.  It is said that several properties in  the neighborhood of the Skylark have  recently changed hands, due to the  excellent record made by the Skylark  mine by the Phoenix people operating  there.  Colgate Hoyt, of New York, thenew  president of the British Columbia  Copper Co., is expected to visit the  company's mines and smelter in the  Boundary within a short time, accompanied by other officials o( the company.  Great satisfaction is expressed by  the management of the British Columbia Copper Co. with the action of  the two large furnaces, which are now  in steady blast at the company's  smelter, and are doing splendid work  Thursday the Granby Co. got its  sixth furnace in blast once more, and  as the supply of coke is now coming in  more freely, it is expected to be able to  keep the six 500-ton furnaces two in  from now on, adding the other going  a short time, if coke supply continues  to keep up.  This week the electrical plant of the  B. B. Copper Co. at the Emma mine,  was started in operation. The new  compressor has a capacity of about 15  drills, the electric power to | drive it  being furnished by the South Kootenay  Power Co. from its sub-station in  Phoenix. /  Acting Manager Beardsley, of the  B. C. Copper Co., is quoted in print  as stating that the copper in the ore he  handles runs from 1^ to ij4 per  cent, two of the contributing mines  doing better than this.    The recovery  FIFTH GIANT  ORE CRUSHER  To be Ordered by the  Granby Co*  For  Use at the   Gold  Mine.  COMING AND GOING  Steam   Dome  Separator   and    Automatic Air   and Steam  Separator.  is stated to be 85 per cent, and that  the blister copper brings 32 cents per  pound, eight cents of which is gold.  Maurice M. Johnson, consulting engineer for the Dominion Copper Co.,  has been spending the week in the  Boundary, inspecting the work done on  the company's properties and laying  out new development. Yesterday he  started back to Cobalt or Utah or  Nevada, where Samuel Newhouse has  extensive mining interests.  -:-F;or...souae time-the new/^ electric  compressor for the .Dominion Copper  Co.'s mines in this camp has been  assembled and ready for use, waiting  for the 400 h.p. motor to drive it.  This week the motor arrived and was  taken to the compressor building on  the Idaho ground.    The  motor is said  The Granby Consolidated is completing arrangements for the ordering  of a new mammoth ore crusher, which  will be installed at the Gold Drop  terminal of the properties. This is in  line with the plan 01' development  mapped out by Local Manager Hodges  months ago, and the great tonnage of  ore developed and blocked out in the  last year or two has seemingly warranted the installation of one of these  huge machines at this point.  These crushers are the largest ofthe  size and type ever constructed for use  in Canada, and this will make the fifth  that lias been ordered by the company. One was burned at the Knob  Hill mine a year or two ago, two are  now in use, and a third has been installed and will be in use in a month  or two at the new Victoria shaft head-  works.  One of these crushers will take a  large piece of ore, 36x42 inches in  size���more than a cubic yard���and  they have a rated capacity of crushing  over 3,000 tons in 24 hours, though  they are hardly ever worked three shifts  steadily. They are manufactured by  the Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrooke, Quebec, and generally require  three or four months or more for casting and installation. Heretofore Gold  Drop ore has been shipped to the  Granby smelter before crushing, but  this will be done away with when the  new machine is installed.  to  weigh  a matter of some  being no featherweight.  1 5  tons,  CAME BACK  FROM COBALT  Ashcroft 'Potatoes  California Celery  California Oranges  RUSSET  ROMAN BEAUTY  MISSOURI PIPPIN  GREENiNG  APPLES  Swift's Hams, Bacon and Lard  Tartan Brand Canned Goods  and Groceries.  .

Ctxs������sxs����sxSSX5X5^^  Caveats have recently been granted  by both the Canadian and American  governments to M. Moser, of Phoenix,  for two patents, which promise to be  important, not only to the inventor but  to all who use compressed atr and  steam, in mining and other industries  One of these consists of the Moser  Adjustable Steam Dome Separator,  which is shown in the first cut. Its  function consists of the separation of  water from steam before the latter  leaves the boiler, all engineers having  had much trouble heretofore in this  regard. One valuable accomplishment  of this invention is that it prevents  boilers from priming���something .that  master mechanics are much annoyed  with, as they must use various kinds of  water. It absolutely separates the  water from the steam, and any engineer will realize how important this is.  The Automatic Air and Steam Separator, which is shown in the second  cut, is particularly useful where compressed air is being used for drilling  purposes���in mining, in short. As all  master mechanics know, at times there  is great annoyance with freezing of  drilling machines using compressed air,  both winter and summer, and, where a  machine man should drill from 40 to  60 feet in an 8-hour shift, it happens,  when troubled with freezing air, that  half or less is drilled.  This invention positively does away  with this freezing, and its utility can  thus be readily noted. One of these  Separators will take the place of half a  dozen so-called automatic traps, and  the inventor positively guarantees the  Separator will do the work better. It  also dispenses with the necessity of  placing air receivers in the mines. All  that is required is to place one or more  Separators at the condensing points of  the main air or steam line, and it will  do the work.  Mr. Moser states that both these  inventions are now and have been for  some time in practical use at the  Brooklyn mine of the Dominion  Copper Co., in Phoenix, and that they  have the hearty endorsement of the  manager, superintendent, foreman and  master mechanic ofthe company. The  fact that they are in constant use, and  thus do away with annoyances which  are more or less prevalent at nearly all  mines, is the very best evidence of the  practical utility of both the inventions.  Mr. Moser has been pump and pipe  man at the Brooklyn mine for two or  three years, and his inventions are the  outcome of troubles which he has had  with the air and steam���and which he  has thus successfully solved. He is  now making arrangements for the  manufacture of his invention?, and will  be glad to explain them more in detail  to any who may be interested.  JC.N  And Thinks it is a Great  Camp.  George W. Rumberger returned  Tuesday evening from a five or six  weeks' trip, during which he went as  far as Toronto and Cobalt. After  spending a little time at Regina, where  he is interested in a new brewery that  is -just beginning to do business after  months of preparation, Mr Rumberger went on to Cobalt, the new  silver camp in Ontario that is attracting so much attention from eastern  capital. It is understood that the visit  to the camp was on private business,  which was not without profit, he and  some friends having grubstaked a Phoenix prospector to go to Cobalt, and the  prospector having made good.  Mr. Rumberger thinks that Cobalt is  a great mining camp, and that a good  deal more will   be heard of it in   the  future,   though,   of course,   the   wild  catters are there in full  force, and arej -  taking advantage of the boom on there 1 X  to unload  any   quantity of shares in  4  companies the value of whose holdings | ��  Band   Concert   Tonight.

Munro and Prendergast have decided to close the rink for the season  tonight (Saturday), and will give a band  concert on that occasion.  S. C. Holman, ofthe B. C. Cooper  Co.'s mines, spent Tuesday night in  camp.  Ralph M. Close, of Laurier, U. S.  Customs inspector, was in the city last  Monday,  Judge W. R. Williams and C. H  Flood went down to Spokane on  Thursday's train..  Drop      Manager A. B. Hood, of the Eastern  v Townships   Bank, went   to   Spokane  Thursday! to spend a few days.  Charles A. McClung and bride, formerly Miss Victoria Johnson, returned  from Spokane on Sunday's train.  Richard P. Williams, the mining  machinery man, was here from Rossland Wednesday on a periodical trip.  P. H. Burnham, district freight and  passenger agent for the Great Northern  at Grand Forks, was in the city Saturday.  W. P. Tierney, of Nelson, who will  build the supplementary Rawhide spur  for the C. P. K., was in the city this  week, being registered at the Brooklyn  hotel.  Mrs. Richard H.Hutchins, of Rossland, who has been visiting her  daughter, Mrs Charles Biesel, at ihe  Snowshoe mine, for a week or ten  days, returned home Tuesday.  Tames O. Church, who has been a  resident of this camp for several years,  left Thursday for the Coeur d'Alene  country, where he expects to locate,  near Mullan, for the time being.  James Murray, an old timer here,  but who has "been over in the Couer  d'Aienes for soinemonths, returned and  left Monday for Saskatchewan, to look,  after a homestead in that province.  A. W. Haley and Mrs.. Haky left  Sunday for Coeur d'Alene, Idaho,  where they will make their home in  future. Mr Haley has given up railroading, his position as C. P. R. agent  in Phoenix being the last that he will  accept.  F. P. Doe, of Seattle, a brother-in-  law of George L. Elkins, spent a day  or two in camp this week. Mrs. Doe  and child accompanied him. Mr. Doe  is interested in copper mines in the  Cascade.mountains, but was -agreeably  surprised at trie extent of mining .operations in the Boundary.  Latest Prices In Metala.

This week the coal operators and  coal miners of the Crow's Nest Pass  have been meeting again at Calgary, to  see if an agreement could be made lor  a new wage scale from April i, 1907,  the old scale expiring at all the coal  mines of the Pass on March 31.  On Thursday ttie Nelson News  printed a report from Calgary to the  effect that as yet no agreement had  been reached, but, on the contrary, the  miners had presented an ultimatum to  the effect that their proposition must  be accepted that day, or the men  would walk out April 1. The proposition was the same scale as before, but  with an advance of ten per cent, on the  present wages; minimum for outside  labor, $2.^0 per day, wages payable  fortnightly.  The miners, according to the same  report, are alleged to claim that the  operators demanded a reduction of  wages of 30 per cent, which could not  be considered.  The latest information is that the operators and miners are still conferring,  this time in secret session, and it is  hoped they will eventually agree.  t  t  Mink.      Camp.

In another column of this issue will  be be noted a carefully prepared sum-  ma! y of the Lord's Day Act, passed  by the Dominion Parliament about a  year ago, the complete act being too  long for these columns. This ict went  into force March 1, 1907, thoughout  the Dominion���that is, that was the  1 date set for its being operative. That  it is enforced all over the Dominion,  isnota fact���in fact; its provisions, in  tbe strictest sense of the term, Ho not  seem to be generally'observed as yet.  .' There'" are good things about''this  ' act, but there are also others that are  simply ridiculous. It is a wise thing  that man should, rest one day in. seven,  and il more men did so, more men  would be better off, and the world at  -large would be benefited. But the  world -cannot,-be' legislated, even in  Canada, intojdqing the thing that is  best and right, any more now than It  could centuries .ago. However, this  LordVoDay Act,-'if modified, can be  ��� made.no small agency to that end in  ���' the course of time. <���  ��� In the far west tlieic .are many objectors to the act, and. sook of them  have given' voice to the objections.  For instance, the act says that no newspaper ��� may- be published on Sunday,  although the work of preparation "is  almost entirely done the previous day.  Gn the other hand, Monday papers,  "the bulk of the work on which is done  on Sunday, if at all, may still be published.  - As far as' the Boundary goes, some  ��� of the rhirres operate on Sunday and  some do not. Some mine managers  ' find that they cannot keep men if they  are laid off systematically on Sundays;  others employ this method almost entirely, be it noted.  -���-. Unless-the act is changed and modified, it would seem that it will, to a  a large extent, become a dead letter in  the west, as.attorney-generals will be  none.too. anxious to give consent to  prosecutions.  the moiety of $100,000 per annum lor  ten years, which was to be in settle  ment of all claims from this province  forever on that score. The Liberal  organs from one end of Canada to  another said it was a grand stand play  by Mr McBride, but that gentleman  has stayed with the proposition, well  knowing, as does every fair-minded  man, that this province does not begin  to get its just dues from the Ottawa  government, in any way, manner nor  shape. Even the Grits in British  Columbia acknowledge this as a fact.  Now, then, Premier Laurier announces that he is preparing to have  an amendment made to the British  North America Act by the mother  country, settling the matter on the  basis that the Ottawa Government is  well-aware will not be accepted by Mr  McBride. At least, dispatches from  Ottawa are to this effect.  On his own behalf, Mr McBride says  he will continue'to stand pat on the  proposition, and if necessary appeal to  the London government for fair play  which British Columbia is most certainly not receiving today. It continues to be the milch' cow of the  entire Dominion, contributing yearly  millions of dollars more than it receives  ���nor is ��� there "any earnest of the  Liberal '"���'politicians at 'Ottawa being  willing to improve the situation on any  reasonable basis. ,Ay.  ���Hon. Richard McBride will assuredly'have the hearty support of the  thinking men of this province in the  stand he has taken���just as he had  their support at the time of the recent  appeal to the people. Ottawa can rub  it in for a time, but. not forever���a'nd  there may be a change there, too, one  of these days."   ; ���;  THE OBSERVATORY  1  TllINOB. TALKHD OK   AT ���  HOMK AND KLBRWIIRRK 1  One of the best known men in  Kootenay and Yale a few years ago  was D. R. Young, who promoted  various enterprises, including the Similkameen Valley Coal Co. and the  Ashnola Smelter, Ltd., neither of  which ever got beyond the promotion  stage, by the way. For the last few  years Mr Young has been at Vernon,  where he speculated in land with some  success and also in a concern known  as the British Empire Mines, Ltd.  Now he is moving to Victoria, and will  sell Okanagan lands to the people of  that locality, who are beginning to  awaken to the possibilities of speculation, both at home and abroad.  A year or two ago ths papers were  full of accounts of the great Pacific  ocean steamships which the Great  Northern was then placing on the  Oriental run from Seattle. Predictions  were made that tonnage to lill the  leviathans could not be found. However, the Dakota and Minnesota have  been doing a large business. Now,  however, "Uncle Jim Hill" is minus  one of the monsters, the Dakota hav  ing been wrecked on the shores of  Japan. While the loss may be assuaged somewhat by the receipt of  some $3,000,000 insurance from the  underwriters, it will take a long time  to replace the Dakota with another  ship of like tremendous capacity.  will bear in mind that, before long, the  C. P. K. will be changing its time  tabic l�� the summer schedule, and if  it is as last year in the Boundary, it  will again require two days to transport  letters and mail matter between  I'hocnix and Greenwood, or Boundary  Falls or Midway. This matter was  pretty well ventilated last year by the  I'toneer, and if we are treated to the  same antediluvian service this year, the  Hon. Rodolph Lemieux will hear of it  at Ottawa. It is high time that some  of the two million dollar surplus earned  by the Canadian postoffice department  .wis - spent in bettering the service all  through the west.  PROVINCIAL.  John D. Rockefeller is still working  hard at; the job. of'giving away his  millions, and���some people think���-  shoves, up the price of oil ��� accordingly.  Probably he "Praises God from whom  oil blessings flow."  Hon William Templeman' has given  notice of a bill at Ottawa to creite a  a Federal department of mines, and at  last the mines, of,Canada are securing  due recognition from the government.  WithMts'annual output of $75,000,000  from mines, it is time that Canada had  such a department.  There are two men in the Boundary  who have their full share of being busy.  They are Thomas R. Drummond,  local manager of the Dominion Copper  Co., and S.l.'. Holman, of B.C. Copper  Co! Mr. Drummond may be found at  any time of the night or day, either at  the Sunset mine, Deadwood Camp, or  the Brooklyn or Idaho mines, Phoenix  camp; or the Rawhide mine, this  camp; or the Athlestan mine, Wellington camp; or at the Boundary Falls  smelter���or at his own home in Greenwood. Thus he has plenty of traveling  to do, night and day, in looking after  the mining interests of the company.  Mr Holman, who is attending to the  duties of Frederic Keffer, in the latter's  absence in the fast, will visit the  Mother Lode mine in Deadwood  camp, as well as the Morrison mine,  a mile and a half beyond, and be back  to Greenwood by dinner time; then he  will go to the Emma, Oro Denoroand  B.C. mines of the company in Summit  camp, the next morning taking the  G. N. train for the Napoleon mine,  near Boyd's, Wash. After spending a  couple of hours there, he will be back-  in Greenwood the same night, if he  does not take a notion; to visit the  Lone Star mine of the company, also  on the other side of the boundary line.  Some people may think these men  have a snap, but���we are from Missouri, and will require showing, at  least in these cases.. ,  The directory census of Vancouver  is placed at 61,000.  ���XV. W.

The public conference, held at Nel  s;:n last week, endoised the protest of  the mine owners against the strict enforcement of the Lord's Day  Observance Act.  Plans lor the building of Okanagan  college, which is to he erected at  Summerland this year, have been prepared, and the actual work will soon  be under way.  The Spences Bridge Nicola Railway  line is to be taken over from Messrs  Loss &��� Macdonell, contractors for  construction, on March 23, if present  plans do not miscarry. It is the intention of the C. P. R. to commence  operating passenger and freight trains  over the new road on April r.  The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway  Co. have filed profile and plans of  location of the line from the eastern  boundary of the Province, through the  Yellow Head Pass to 27 miles west of  the Pass. The plans show that the  route runs on the north side .of the  Fraser River and the Moore Lake.

Hunter, of the Hunter Kendrick Co.,  who went to Southern California a  month ago with his brother, James  Hunter, had been killed in a railway  accident, and the brother/had been  seriously injured. Of course, the story  had no foundation whatever, as far as  can be learned, Mr Hunter being expected here again next week.  : A story was also,: circulated that a  well known miner in this camp had  been killed in tbe Granby shaft, and  his remains were at the Binns undertaking parlors. Many miners went  went there to see the remains, only to  find that this was another alleged  practical joke, probably emanating from  the same source as the first named.  .. The general public has its own  opinion of a man who would circulate,  such ghastly stories just for his own  amusement, and in this case the  general public also has a pretty good  idea of the business man that started  the rumors. Likewise, the general  public, almost without exception, unhesitatingly condemns these 1 roducts of  a diseased imagination. ; It is to be  hoped that he has had his lesson this  time, though it is proverbial that some  people must have a brick block fall on  their.-before they tumble.

Those compelled to work on  Sunday are allowed a full Day's Rest  During the Week, if on railway, telegraph, telephone, or industrial work.���  Section 4.  5. The Business of Amusements,  etc., is absolutely prohibited.���Section  $1 to $40. (z) For the employer who  causes its violation���-from $20 to $100.

This includes the  game, liquor, shops' regulation and  railway laws of the provinces, also the  ante-Confederation laws.'���Section  14.  Whether any particular provincial  law affecting Sunday observance is  valid or not depends not on anything  in the Lord's Day Act but on the  British North America Act as interpreted by the courts. The Privy  Council's famous decision of July 14th,  1903, seems clearly to show that the  ante-Confederation Provincial Sunday  laws are now valid, and that the Provinces cannot since Confederation pass  general Sunday laws. But it does not  follow from this that they cannot pass  pame or electric railway legislation including Sunday sections.  13.

The first warm days of spring bring  with them a desire to get out and enjoy the exhilirating air and sunshine.  Children that have been housed up all  winter are brought out and you wonder  where they all came from. The heavy  winter clothing is thrown aside and  many shed their flannels. Then a cold  wave comes and people say that grip  is epidemic. Colds at this season are  even more dangerous than in midwinter, as there is much more danger  of pneumonia. Take Chamberlain's,  Cough Remedy, however, and you will  have nothing to fear. It. always cures,  and we have never known a cold to  result in pneumonia when it was used.  It is pleasant and safe to take. Children like it.    For sale by all druggists.  REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT  IN   B.C.  London  Our   Stable  Critic    Comments   on  Government.    .  In the course of its comments on  "British Columbia's Progress" the  London Critic lately observed :  One ofthe inevitable results of a more  stable government in British Columbia  during the past few years has been the  marked improvement in the credit of  the province, while, prictically without  exception, all the industries associated  with the country have shown remarkable advance in the same period. The  province's mines, fisheries, forests,  farms and other industries produced,  commodities in 1906 to the value of  $60,000,000, and yvhen it is recalled  that the total number of inhabitants is  just about 200,000, such an achievement can with perfect justice be described as remarkable.  The output from the mines in 1906  was valued approximately at $26,000,-  000, while the flourishing condition of  other undertakings is reflected in the  province's revenue figures. In 1901  the income from all sources was only  $1,606,000; for the current year it will  be, approximately, $3,250,00;;. In  1901 the income from lands and  forests was only $200,000; for 1907 it  will total at least $1,000,000.  A feyv weeks ago the voters of Grand  ���Forks riding registered their wish lo  send John Mclnnis, of Phoenix, to  the legislative halls at Victoria, as their  representative for the next four years���  the first time that a representative from  this riding has hailed from Phoenix.  Mr. Mclnnis was nominated on the  straight Socialist ticket, there being also  Conservative and Liberal candidates  in the field. When the votes were  counted the Liberal lost his deposit,  and Mr Mclnnis, who received the  votes of many who were not Socialists,  was declared the successful candidate.  John Mclnnis was born near Char-  lottetown. Prince Edward Island, in  1878, his parents being Scotch and  still residing on the "Island." Coming  west in 1898, John Mclnnis shortly  afterwards reached what is now known  as the Boundary country, and since  that time lias resided in or near  Phoenix. He is one of the most skilled  miners in the Boundary, and has been  chosen as president oi Phoenix Miners'  Union No. 8 several times. It was  owing to bis well known honesty/and  uprightness that he received many  votes at the recent election from' outside the Socialist party. j  Mr.. Mclnnis is said to be the  youngest member in the house, and is  taking a lively interest in the proceedings, his voice having already; been  heard there, although there are but two  other Socialist members out of the 42  M.L.A.'s, the hous�� being overwhelmingly Conservative. The working men  of the Boundary are much pleased at  having Mr. Mclnnis at Victoria, as  they realize that they could hardly have  sent a man who would represent them  better.

C.  C. F. Caldwell, the Kaslo mining  man, has just returned from the east.  In an interview with the Kootenaian,  Mr Caldwell remarked, "There is all  kinds of eastern money looking for  mining investment," he said, "but just  noyv it is confining its attention chiefly  to Cobalt. In that section there are  mining companies putting money in a  hole yvhere there is not even a ledge  to justify it, while others are wailing  around with a big yvad of money, ready-  to throyv it into the first wildcat offering. Some are almost begging mt a  chance to spend their money. It is  hard to understand why there is such  a craze to invest in that particular  section. The chances for an adequate  return are far better here. I do not  know of any country where there are  so many good and wonhy propositions  waiting for capital as there are in ihe  neighborhood of Kaslo. But 1 do  not think yve shall have to wait long  until capital comes for their exploitation. The revival of the mining  industry in this section will be permanent yvhen it does come."  ED.

That old story of the henpecked  husband, the more than usually obnoxious mother-in-law and the family  of nephews, cousins, sisters, and  numerous other relatives are served  up with new -and elaborate trimmings  of bright sayings and catchy music,  pretty girls and dazzling dance numbers. The story brings a vociferous  mother-in-law to the home of her inoffensive son in-law with her host of  relations, among whom is a son lately  married surreptitiously, and the father  of a three months' old child.  Appleton and Perry, the two comedians, as the friend and husband  respectively, in dialogue, song, and the  excruciatingly funny automobile, are  sure to create laughs galore, while  therj are over a dozen of the brightest  of vaudeville specialties introduced  during the action of the comedy by  various members of the excellent organization.  r .��oa*i  WINMMWla��MffMM��MAMWi  Invest  Your   Money  In Such Legitimate Shares  as  Will Prove  an Investment if not a Quick Money Maker.

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has  no superior for coughs, colds and  croup, and the fact that it is pleasant  to take and contains nothing in any  way injurious has made it a favorite  with mothers. Mr. W. S. Pelham, a  merchant of Kirksville, Iowa, says:  "For more than twenty years Chamberlain's Congh Remedy has been my  leading remedy for all throat troubles.  It is especially successful in cases of  croup. Children hke it and my customers who have used it will not take  any other."     For sale by all druggists.  Never Heard of Qranby Smaller.  At a meeting in Toronto last week  of the Canadian Mining Institute, says  the Greenwood Ledge, the president  Mr. Smith, M. P. P., of Thetford  Mines, Quebec, said in his speech  that he hoped the day would soon  come when Canada would have some  smeliers of its own so that ores would  be treated at home instead of sending  them to the United States. If Smith  had time to slip into the Boundary  for a few minutes his ignorance would  disappear. He could have obtained  the desired information by reading the  mining journals, but perhaps he would  also need a geography, for so many of  those so called wise people in the east  persist in thinking that British Columbians in the United States. At  Greenwood we are just nine miles from  the line, but that is far enough to en  title us to the honor and distinction of  being in Canada. Smith's ignorance is  all the worse, seeing that the largest  smelter in the Boundary is called after  a town in his own province.  Granby '.
