R. passenger train last week, came  Phoenix a year ago last fall from San  Francisco, where he said he had been  employed in the office of an express  company. He is a man of about 25  years, and said to be a native of Har-  riston, Ontario, drifting west with his  portion of an estate that was left him.  When he firsi arrived in Phoenix he  was employed on a timber gang,on the  V., V. & E., railway putting in cribbing  but only worked for a week. Then  he worked in the local office of P.  Burns & Co., Ltd., and also in the  warehouse of Hunter, Kendrick Co.  He did not seem able to hold a position for any length of time, and was  out of employment for a considerable  period.  Finally he was made time keeper  for Contractor Brown, on the V. V. &  E. west of Midway, and came back  from there, working for some time at  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Brooklyn mine in this camp as mucker or  car man. When he left here he owed  a number of bills around town, but returned and worked Jong enough to  settle all of his accounts.  His various employers universally  gave him a good character, but say  that he lacked ambition, and seemed  to be lazy, which accounts for his not  holding any position any length ol  time. He was an easy going young  fellow, and no one thinks he would  have been connected with a train  robbery, as he seemed to lack the  grit and get-up-and-gct for such an undertaking.  Story ol Robbery ind Capture.  Tuesday night, May 8th, three train  robbers held up the C. P. R. passenger train on the main line, 16 miles  east of Kamloops. They climbed over  the tender, covered the engineer and  firemen with guns and made thern cut  the mail car from the train and run on  for a mile. Here the masked men entered the mail car, but secured only a  small amount of cash from the registered mail, something like $30,000  that was in the car escaping their attention. When done they bade the  engineer good night and started over  the hills.  When the alarm was given from  Kamloops, as soon as the train could  get back, all the machinery of the C.  P. R., the provincial and Dominion  governments was called into action to  aprehend the bandits, a total of $ti,-  500 in rewards being offered for their  capture, dead or alive. Police Constables, Northwest mounted police  and detectives from all parts swarmed  into that country, and Indians, woods  men and what not started in on the  chase, two sets of bloodhounds also  being brought there, one being the  hounds from Spokane that recently  ran down a murderer.  The country was scoured lor miles  and several men were taken in' charge  on suspicion. But Monday afternoon  Constable Fernie, about a mile from  Douglas lake, came upon three men  in the bush whom he decided to be  the men wanted. He culled the  mounted police not far away, and the  men were arrested, one of them showing fight, and several shots being exchanged, one bandit receiving a bullet  through the  leg.  When arrested and taken to Kam-  oops the men geve their names as  George Edwards, William Dunn, alias  "Shorty," and Louis Colquhoun, the  latter saying he was from Peoenix.  Edwards is said to be the notorious  Bill Miner, who has been mixed up in  several hold-ups in the west, and  is a much wanted individual by a number of sheriffs.  The robbery has excited much interest, as 111 1904 the C. P. R. train  was held up near Mission Junction  and many thousands of dollars were  secured by the robbers, one of whom  is believed to be Bill Miner. Edwards,  or Miner has been identified by the  mail clerk, A. H. McQuarrie, whose  car he entered.  Martin Burrell, editor of the Grand  Forks Gazette, was a visitor here last  Sunday.  J. H. Fox, of Nelson, travelling  freight agent for the C.P.R., was here  Monday.  Wm. Spier, manager of the Eastern  Townships Bank, at Grand Forks, was  here early this week.  Mrs. Charlotte Crawford, of Seattle,  is visiting her daughter, Mrs. XV. B.  Willcox, for a couple of months.  S. S. Irwin, manager of the B. C.  Telephone Co. at Rossland, was here  Tuesday, looking after repairs in the  Boundary.  R. A. Fraser, a former resident of  this camp, but now employed at the  LeRoi mine, Rossland, spent a couple  of days here this week.  J. S. Clute, of New Westminster, the  veteran inspector of customs, has been  spending several days in the Boundary,  on one of his regular rounds.  Sheriff H. C. Kerman, of Grand  Forks, was in the city Sunday evening,  on his way to attend county court at  Greenwood the next morning.  Dr. Campbell, Dominion veterinary  inspector at Midway, was a visitor here  Thursday, to inspect some cows imported from the American side.  W. B. Bower, of Grand Forks, who  has been here for the last three weeks  neaily, with the Eastern Townships  Bank, returned home last Saturday.  Frederic Keflex, M. E., engineer for  the B. C. Copper Co., spent several  days in Franklin camp last week, where  his company may have substantial interests.  SAW MINES  OF COMPANY  President Langeloth, of Granby  Company.  Boundary Mining Notes  Well  Satisfied With  Made.  Progress  Col. Robert T. Lowery, the sage of  Lowery's Claim and who has just  launched the Ledge at Greenwood,  was in the city last Saturday, and  found many old friends.  Supt. A. B. W. Hodges, of the  Granby Consolidated, visited the Pathfinder mine, on the North Fork, this  week. The company has some 25  men at work there on development.  Fred \V. Knight, the well known  Grand Forks mining man, returned to  the Boundary last week, from Salinas,  Calif., where he was located when the  earthquake struck the Golden Gate  state.  John A. Morrin returned Thursday  from the meeting of the grand lodge of  the Knights of Pythias, which was held  at Nanaimo. He reports a most successful gathering of the members of  that order.  Last Saturday a special irain on the  Great Northern railway brought President Jacob Langeloth, of the Granby  Consolidated, accompanied by Mrs.  Langeloth, Jay P. Graves, the general  manager, and Supt. A. B. W. Hodges.  The train arrived about noon, and  the visitors spent the rest of the day in  inspecting the properties of the company, including the Monarch and  Gold Drop mines, new acquisitions as  regards development since Mr. Lang-  lotb'.-i visit last year. The parties  left Sunday morning for Spokane on  the Great Northern regular passenger  train.  Mr. Langeloth is also president of  the American Metal Co.,of New York,  a concern that is the second largest of  its kind on the American continent.  The concern has branches in several  parts of Europe, and its business is the  marketing of the metallic output of  mines and smellers all over North  America. He had just come from a  trip to Arizona, having visited,   among  Two diamond drills are again being  operated at the Granby mines.  Some Providence ore is being sent  to the Hall Mines smelter at Nelson.  A diamond drill is being operated  at the McKinley mine, McKinley  camp.  ��� More ore shipments from the Strath-  more are expected to be sent out this  month.  Another cur of machinery for the  headworks of the new Granby shaft  has arrived.  JAP SAVANT  WAS A VISITOR  Eminent   Metallurgist    From  Land of Mikado.  It is now thought that the opening  of the new Miners' Union opera house  will take place about the first of July.  Customs Officer Delahay has received orders from Ottawa to confiscate  any copies of the Appeal to Reason,  ihe   Girard, Kansas,   Socialst   weekly,  ately ruled out by the Canadian  post  office   department   which   may   come  icre by post, express or otherwise.  Mr. Delahay states also that merely  having these papers in one's possession  subjects one to arrest and fine. A  package was received in Phoenix by  express this week, but was not delivered to the consignee.  Wm. Dickman, the veteran prospector, who located the Providence mine,  and returned to the Boundary recently  from his old home at Rockville, Wis.,  is heading for the Similkameen, searching for more bonanzas.  M. H. McQuarrie came in Saturday  from a visit to his townsite in McKinley camp, up the North Fork. He  states that things look good to him in  that locality, but he would like to  know how many railways are to build  to the camp out of those projected.  W. D. Lawson, ledgerkeeper of the  Eastern Townships Bank, returned  from his trip to Shelbourne, Ont.,  where he went recently, accompanying  the remains of his sister, Mrs. Manning, and her child, who lost their  lives in the earthquake at Santa Rosa,  Calif.  Matron Howe, of the Phoenix General Hospital, left for Victoria Wednesday, where she will spend her annual  vacation, expecting to be absent about  six weeks. While Miss Howe is gone,  Miss Murray, who returned last week,  and Miss Boffey will be in charge of  the institution.  other properties, the famous Copper  Queen mine, at Douglas, .\riz-ma, and  the big properties at Cananea,  Mexico.  As to Mr. Langf.loih's impressions  of the company's progress at its Phoenix mines, it may be said without  question that he was not a little pleased  at the evident advance in development, both here and at the company's  Grand Forks smelting plant, since his  visit of less than a year ago, and he  so expressed himself. His trip was a  somewhat hurried one, as he is de-  sirious of getting back to his New York  office as soon as possible, having been  absent some weeks. It was Mrs.  Langeloth's first visit to Phoenix. Mr.  Langeloth is one of the New York  capitalists who took a large interest in  the Granby Consolidated two or three  years ago, since which time the company's shares has appreciated two or  three hundred per cent or more.  DOES NOT WISH SHAFT   IN  THE STREET.  the   Do-  '3  164  75  00  00  communication was  Brown,   solicitor, of  106  2  4  Another Dally lor Nelion.  Notwithstanding the fact that Nelson needs a second daily paper about  as much as a cow needs two tails, a  project is on foot, it is said, to establish anothet paper there, to be called  Morning Canadian. The same report  has it that the new paper will be published in the Conservative interests  and be under the management of  David Mark Carlev, who is now publisher and proprietor of the weekly  Economist.  Reliance Will Ship Ore.  The Ratbmullen mines, in Summit  camp, are steadily progressing and will  have one of their group a shipper  shortly. Considerable development  work has been done the past two years  on the crown granted claims of the  company, but latterly work has been  confined to the Reliance claim, which  has been developed by a 100 foot shaft  and drifts at the 50-foot and lower  levels. Copper ore of a good grade  has been encountered in the works,  but the formation is badly cut by porphyry. In the past week, however,  considerable ore of a shipping grade is  coming in, and the face of the drift at  the 100-foot level is well in ore.  L H. Moffatt, a director of the  company, who visited the mine during  the week, is much pleased with the  showing, and said they expected to  make the Reliance a shipping property  this summer.  Mr. Karatofsky   Protest*   Against  minion Copper Co.  Mayor Rumberger and Councilmen  Oxley, Kane, Brown and Carson were  present at Wednesday's meeting of the  city council, the following accounts,  on recommendation of the finance  committee, being ordered paid :  M. Mclntyre $  74  B. C. Telephone Co      10  Phoenix Electric Lighting Co.    93  Pioneer Pub. Co   Morrin, Thompson & Co  Gutta Percha & Rubber Mfg.  Co   Granby Co   C, P. R   Co      The   following  read from   J.   R.  Greenwood :  City Clerk, Phoenix, B.C.,  Dear Sir,���-I have been instructed  by Robert H. Karatofsky, who owns a  lot at the corner of Standard avenue  and School street, to protest to the  city council of Phoenix against the  action of the Dominion Copper Co. in  sinking a shaft and building a shaft-  house on Standard avenue, Phoenix.  If the highhanded action of the Dominion Copper Co. is allowed to go  unchallenged, it will cut off the most  convenient means of ingress and egress  from Mr. Karatofsky's lot and seriously  damage it. Unless the matter of  which Mr. Karatofsky complains is  remedied without delay, I shall take  what legal steps are necessary to protect his interests. Will you kindly  place this communication before the  city council of Phoenix at its first  meeting and oblige,    Yours truly,  J. R. Brown.  The city clerk was ordered to send  a copy of the letter to the Dominion  Copper Co., and ask if it is the intention of the company to block Standard  avenue.  Chief Commissioner of Lands and  Works R. F. Green, wrote from Vic���  toiia, replying to the mayor, to the  effect that the cost of the examination  and report made by F. C. Gamble,  government engineer, regarding a  sewerage system in Phoenix, would be  borne by the government.  The purchase of a regular fire harness for the fire team was authorized.  It is expected to cost about $170 in  Kansas City, Mo. The board of works  was psked to investigate the feasibility  of making some improvements to  Brooklyn avenue, and the council ad  journed.

The Skylark shipped another car of  ore this week, the property continuing  to look well.  A glory hole is being opened up on  the Stemwinder, and the Idaho is  likely to have another.  Work is to be resumed on the  Prince Henry in a day or two, when  the installation of the electric hoist is  completed.  A 12-inch gold and silver vein has  been opened up on the Starve Out  claim, near the Helen, by Hostetter  and Peone.  Smith & Co., of Grand Forks, are  reported to have taktn up the bond  acquired by them on the M. S. group  in Franklin camp.  Fred Whitwell is finding good ore  now in the workings of the Maori  group in Providence camp, where he is  steadily pushing development.  In sinking to the 300-foot level of  the Elkhorn, about eight inches of excellent silver ore were found a few days  since at a depth of 260 feet in the  shaft.  A crosscut is being run from the  100-foot level on the Washington and  Idaho, West Fork, where Mike Calla-  ghan has half a dozen men at work for  Collins, Hunter and others.  Development work is to be resumed  on the Bay mine in Skylark camp,  which has produced such high values  in gold in the past. The boiler is being repaired, and active work will be  taken up again.  From the last car of Rambler ore  net returns of $111 per ton were received, the property being located up  the West Fork. It is reported that  the owners refused a bond of $50,000  on the Rambler quite recently.  Last Tuesday was the date of the  payment of the May dividend by the  Granby Consolidated, amounting to  $405,000 exactly. This is the third  dividend paid by the company, one  having been paid in January last and  another in December, 1904. The  total paid to date is $943,630.  Keijiro  Nafcamura  Mines.  Looks   at  Killed at Granby Smelter.  James Ritchie, an employee at the  Granby smelter, was terribly scalded  Thursday by molten metal, from an  explosion caused by dropping a piece  of pipe in a settling pot. He died  that evening about eleven o'clock.  Miles Barrett, the foreman, was also  seriously burned, and will be laid up  some weeks.  Thursday's train on the Great Northern brought to Phoenix one who is an  important personage in mining and  smelting circles in his own land���the  land of the cherry blossom. This was  Keijiro Nakamura, chief metallurgist  of the Besshi copper mine, island of  Shikoku, southwest ot Kobe, Japan,  who came to investigate the metallurgical processes in vogue at the Granby  mines and smelter. He has already  spent several days at the smelting  works. Mr. Nakamura is engaged in  making a tour of the. world for the express purpose of investigating metallurgical processes. He is specially interested in copper, but will take occasion  to examine into silver, lead and zinc  processes on his travels. His employer,  one of the wealthiest men in Japan,  who operates the Besshi copper mine,  which is one of the biggest in Japan,  commissioned him to make the present trip.  After his investigations at the Boundary mines and smelters, Mr. Nakamura will proceed to Nelson and pay  a visit to the Hall Mines smelter.  From Nelson Mr. Nakamura goes  south and will visit all smelting centres  in the United States. Thence he goes  to Mexico and then to Europe. If  time will permit he will visit South  Africa and Australia before returning  to Japan. This is Mr. Nakamura's  firsc visit to a foreign land and he is  enjoying it immensely.  Speaking of the famine in Japan,  Mr. Nakamura expressed keen appreciation of the generous contributions  that have been sent to the starring  people by Canada and other countries..  He said that the worst was ���over and  conditions were now rapidly improving  in the famine districts. Japan is  rapidly recovering from the effects of  the war. Trade is in excellent condition and the country as a whole is enjoying wonderful prosperity. Mr.  Nakamura remarked, with evident  pride, that throughout the war operations at the Besshi copper mine were  continued uninterruptedly.  24th May Excursions.  The Great Northern will sell return  tickets to local points in British Columbia at one and one-third fare. Selling dates May 22, 23 and 24 inclusive,  final return limit May 29th. To Vancouver, $33.40; New Westminster,  $32.90. Selling dates May 22, 23,  24; final return limit May 29.  Death af Earl Irwin.  Earl Irwin died Tuesday morning at  the Phoenix General hospital, and instructions were received to ship the remains to his old home at Olindo, Ontario, where his mother lives. Irwin  came here just a year ago, and was  employed in the Granby mines for a  time. Latterly he has been troubled  with abcess of the lungs, and last week  Wednesday was taken to the hospital.  It was decided that an operation was  necessary in an effort to save his life,  and it took place last Friday. He  passed away, however, Tuesday. Irwin  was a young man of 27 years, and a  member of the Eagles and the Woodmen. He came here from the coast,  where he had been a schoolteacher,  and had been employed at Van Anda.  The remains were accompanied to the  C.P.R. Thursday by the local lodge of  Eagles, about 60 members turning  out.

About a year ago, just  before  the  nsing   of   the   Dominion  Parliament  at Ottawa, a  bill  was  introduced increasing the indemnity ofthe members  from $1,500 to $2,500  each per year  ������with the usual mileage added.   This  session a measure was  introduced reducing the indemnity to the old figure,  but the dispatches tell us that it was  overwhelmingly defeated.     That, perhaps, is not to be wondered at, as few  persons care to have their income reduced if they can legitimately hold on  to it.    That is but human nature, and  then, think of the bard  work most of  the members do, also.  But there is another phase of the  matter worth considering. The members of Parliament actually raised their  own pay and the people have the  pleasure of paying it. If they had increased the indemnity, to take effect  when the next Parliament is elected, it  would have been in much better taste,  and the members could not have been  accused of looking for the ioaves and  fishes, as has been the case. This  pnnciple was laid down in the Congress of the United States in connection with the salary of the president  and that of the members, and it was  quite fitting, and public opinion generally must condemn the,plan followed  at Ottawa.  We do not believe that $2,500 is too  large an indemnity for .members at  Ottawa, not a bit of it. The country  should pay its legislators a fair return  for services rendered, but when they  deliberately raise their own indemnity,  it has an appearance ot their being  after the money first and foremost,  however much this may be denied.  his steel bands, buying his right of way  outright. He may not always bring a  competition of rates in his wake, but  he certainly does bring a competition  of service, and that amounts to a great  deal.  In some quarters there is a tendency  to "jump" on the   C.  P. R., with the  probable advent of Mr. Hill's lines in  any particular locality.      While the C.  P. R. has undoubtedly   taken  all the  traffic would bear���like  all   new railways���when it   had   the   tonnage   to  itself, much credit is due that railway  for being the pioneer in railway  build  ing in Western Canada,  and in  keeping  up its standard.     Today there is  not a greater railway corporation in the  world, perhaps, than the C.P.R., nor a  more profitable one, by the same token.  Never mind if the government did give  the C.P.R. its right of way, a big land  and often cash  bonus and a big monopoly   for  years,   few  aggregations of  capitalists would accept   the  proposition, at the time the C. P. R. accepted  it���and risk chances of success.  It was a splendid thing for Canada  that the C.P.R. did build its transcontinental line, and later its innumerable  feeders to that line. It is a good thing  that Mr. Hill is building extensively in  Canada���good for the people and good  for the country in general. Canada is  growing and growing fast, and there  will be business enough for all the  railways that will be constructed.  Right in the Boundary we can see the  benefits from having two railways, and  the story will be repeated wherever the  conditions are analogous.  HAND QRANBV SHARES TO  POSTERITY.  Boston   Advice   to   an   Investor  ol   fl Year  Since.  The Boston News Bureau recently  contained the following query from a  subscriber, regarding Granby shares,  with the paper's reply thereto :  Question���I bought about a year  ago for investment some Granby Consolidated stock on your recommendation. I bought the stock outright, bui  borrowed from a bank the money to  pay for it. At present prices my paper  profit is large and tempting. I should  like to know what you would do in like  circumstances. I can hold the stock  for an indefinite time if advisable.  Answer���A year ago Granby was  selling at 5"^. It has since sold at  13^3; it is now selling at about 12.  We should suggest that you sell one-  half of your holdings, or an amount  sufficient to make the profits on the  amount sold reduce the cost on the remaining stock to nothing. You can  then afford to put your stock at the  bottom of your tin box, draw your  dividends and hand your Granby certificates down to posterity.  Granby is a big low-grade mine, and  one which should show steady better  ment in the matter of costs and in the  amount of copper output.  When ihe price of copper breaks to  12 cents, and it should be said that  there is not the least indication of such  a decline at present dis:ernible, you  might then add to your holdings at declining quotations and repeat later on  the process above outlined.  Granby has possibilities of making  one of the largest low-grade mines in  the world. Your investment is well  secured as to property and could a  price of 18 cents for copper beguaran  teed a very much higher price lor the  stock than is now ruling would be  justified.  1  btomacb    Troubles.

C MINING  A fifth copper furnace is being put  in at the Trail smelter.  ���-  American Boy (Slocan) stock is now  assessable up to two cents per share.  Improvements costing about $75,-  000 are being completed at the Nelson  smelter.  Rossland mines last week shipped  6,060 tons of ore, or 120,175 tons f��r  the year.  One furnace at the Pilot Bay smelter  was blown in last week, with two more  to follow.  The capacity of the Trail lead refinery is to be doubled, the new machinery costing about $20,000.  A new body of ore has been opened  up in the Ymir mine, and the stamp  mill will be running shortly.  Total ore shipments from Yale-  Kootenay mines were 32,053 tons last  week, making 628,945 tons for the  year.  Eight thousand dollars worth ol  machinery, including an air compressor, have been ordered for the Ottawa  mine, near Slocan City.  Eoflneer M. M. Johnson Tells of Plaos and  Accomplishments.  M. M. Johnson, chief of the New-  house staff and consulting engineer  for the Dominion Copper Company, returned from his trip to the mines and  smelter of the company at and near  Boundary Falls, B. C., Friday night,  says the Salt Lake Herald. He is  much pleased with the manner in  which everything is working out at the  properties, and states that within six  months the smelter, which is to be enlarged at once, will be handling from  1,200 to 1,500 tons of ore per day.  Through the two furnaces with which  the plant is equipped Superintendent  W. C. Thomas handled 20,000 tons of  ore in April, though the maximum  capacity of the furnaces had been rated  at 300 tons each per day.  Preparations for the addition of a  single furnace that will treat more than  600 tons per day are already under  way, and next fall, Mr. Johnson says,  it will be placed in commission. At  the mines preparations are being made  for the installation of a great compressor plant that will be electrically driven  by power supplied from a plant on the  Kootenay river, 75 miles away. By  the time his plans have all been rounded into shape Mr. Johnson expects  that electricity will supply all the  power used by the company, whether  at the smelter or mines, and that present costs of supplying energy will have  been whittled down to a minimum.

The following is from a recent issue  of the Montreal Gazette :  "The Eastern Townships Bank directors have decided that the new  building will be ten storeys high,  which means that the structure to be  located at the corner of St. James  street and Victoria Square will be one  of the largest and most imposing of the  many financial and business edifices  which line St. James street from the  court house to the Queen's monument.  The last tenant has vacated the old  building, which will in a .few days be  levelled to the ground. There is some  talk of constructing the new bank of  Stanstead granite, but this detail has  not yet been decided upon. The officials expect to be in their new home a  year from next fall. It is understood  that the new edifice will contain about  150 offices, and that the lot and building complete will represent an outlay  in the neighborhood of $500,000."  :  t  Leave Phoenix  Leave Greenwood  9.30 a. m.  -2.30 p.'m.

Eight or ten people  arrived in Phoenix by the train, destined for Greenwood. A stage was  awaiting them, and at seven o'clock, or  a trifle after that hour, they had reached Greenwood���just an hour ahead of  other travellers who went by way of  Midway. In other words, they could  go down hill five miles in considerably  less time than they could travel up hill  from Midway, a distance of eight or  nine miles from Greenwood. The  travellers by way of Phoenix had finished their dinner long before the travellers via Midway had reached the  Boundary creek city.    The  moral is  obvious.  ���  A new union has been formed in  Vancouver, that of Chinese laundry  employees, and the members swear by  the shade of Confucius that they must  have an increase in wages. There is  no chance of such a union being formed in Phoenix.  ���  Last week   the   first  issue  of the  Ledge, Greenwood's new weekly, made  its appearance.      It is a seven column  folio sheet, and full of local news, with  a fair representation in its advertising  columns.     Appearances indicate that  it has come to stay, with R. T. Lowery  as chief push and James W.  Grier in  immediate charge.   This is understood  to be the twentieth  weekly  started by  the genial colonel.  .   . ��#t  Thanks are due to Postmaster  Matheson, of the city, for working out  a daily mail service between Phoenix  and Greenwood, Boundary Falls and  Midway���something that was cut off  by the change in the time table on the  C.P.R. on the 6th inst. Mr. Matheson, by permission of the postoffice department, is now making up a mail  sack for Grand Forks to go out on the  Great Northern train in the morning���  something we have never had before.  Mail from Phoenix for the places mentioned will be sent in this sack, and  then by the C.P.R. in the afternoon to  its destination. In the afternoon, a  special sack will be received via Great  Northern from Grand Forks, giving the  same accommodation in the other  direction. This is another direct benefit by the Great Northern.  Editor Carley, of the Nelson Econo  mist, thinks that the hold-up of the  train near Kamloops the other night  gives rise to the suspicion that some  ambitious "journalist" may be contemplating the establishment of another  daily paper in British Columbia.  The Vancouver World asks, "Will  the Seven Sutherland Sisters never  die ?" Not as long as there are long  haired women in the world willing to  pose at so much per.  A knocker, according to the Golden  Star, is a sour-faced vinegar-souled  detriment to the human race. He is a  gap in the building, a hole in the wall,  a crevice in the foundation. Be a  builder. Form one of the bond stones.  Do something and be somebody.  Don't knock.  King Edward sent   21   warships to  camp at the door of the Sick Man of  Europe, and the Sultan   immediately  thought discretion   the better part of  valor about occupying British territory  with his troops.    Abdul   Hamid  is a  pretty   cunning,   though   bloody   and  grasping old Turk,   who   should have  taken   a   trip to   the   happy  hunting  grounds long ago.  �����  An anti-cigarette league has been  formed in Spokane and has thousands  of members among the growing generation. This looks like hard lines for  the coffin nails in the Falls city and  also like a healthier lot of young  people.  For the second time in recent years  a C.P.R. passenger train was held up  last week, this time near Kamloops.  There should be some means devised  to make it so hot for such gentry that  they would give Canada a wide berth.  The first thing we know they will be  tackling foiih- nitilti-millionaire newspaper mat,.  �����  Ja'iics Dunsmuir has been gazetted  as lieutenant-governor of British Columbia. He is probably the wealthiest  man in the province, and will be able  to spend whatever is necessary to do  the right thing as chief executive.  Who are the really live merchants ?  Do you want to know ? Then read the  following from a comtemporary which  tells with accuracy and point :  The live merchants,  the merchants  who do not complain of hard times,  are the advertising merchants. They  have realized the fact thai, in this advanced day, for a man to hold bis own  in business without advertising is a  poor policy by which to be governed.  They have learned that every year they  must spend a share of the profits in  advertising. The time has come when  the people look to the advertisements  as their buying guide and trade with  the men who advertise.  Not if as Rlcb ��5 Rockefeller.   '  If you had all the wealth of Rockefeller, the Standard Oil magnate, you  could not buy a better medicine for  bowel complaints than Chamberlain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.  The most eminent physician cannot  prescribe a better preparation for colic  and diarrhoea, both for children and  adults. The uniform success of this  remedy has shown it to be superior to  all others. It never fails, and when re  duced with water and sweetened, is  pleasant to take. Every family should  be supplied with it. Sold by all druggists.  L��ok at His Condition.  Look at the condition of the work-  ingman today; where is he? The tinners are continually going up the spout;  the plumbers are always in the gutter;  the paper hangers are up against the  wall; bakers are compelled to raise the  dough; the policeman has to be on the  beat to live; the shoemakers have to  work on the uppers and get waxed in  the end; the clock makers run on tick  and are never on time; the washerwoman is always in soak and she is the  one you see hanging out on a line.  1 -?4Hf4<f<M*4f-4f*��*+-04HHf*-#**+-**+  \\ Church Services Tomorrow \\  1 I  Methodist���Class meeting at 11 a.  m., Sunday School at 2:30 p. m. evening service 7:30 p. m.

This la sure to  produce such symptoms as cold feet and  hands, sick headache, palpitation of the  heart and heavy feelings in the stomach.  Then begins a series of experiments  with medicine. They take medicine for  eick headache. They take medicine for  nervous prostration, for palpitation of  the heart, for dyspepsia. None of these  medicines do any good, because they  do not reach the cause of the complaint.  Perani at once mitigates all these  symptoms by removing the cause.  Systemic catarrh is the trouble. Systemic catarrh pervades the whole system, deranges every organ, weakens  ���very function. No permanent cure can  be expected until the systemic catarrh  is removed.  This is exactly what Peruna will do.  Good health is tlie basis of beauty.
