The season of the year at which the  examination   was   made   was   not  favorable for such work, because the  streams were at high-stage   and the  most likely  gravels   could   not  be  reached.

General Agents for Can  The Government of British Col  umbia, which offered a reward of  $1500 for the conviction of the  person or persons responsible tor the  series of incendiary fires at Nelsou,  will not follow the example of -the  authorities of that city, which has  decided not to pay its offered reward  of $500 on the ground that the conviction of Bradshaw was secured for  an arson committed outside the  limit ofthe city municipality. "The  offer of the reward by the province,"  said a responsible officer of the  crown last week, "was to secure a  termination of the repeated act>> ot  incendiarism and the punishment of  tbe person responsible. It makes no  difference whether the fires for the  setting of which a man was convicted, were within or without a city's  limits. The piovincially offeied  reward will be paid, otcourse."  T*HE v/oiadorCul  success ot Fit-  Reform is due to  the fact that it enables  thousands of men, in  every part of Canada, to  wear garments designed  and tailored by masters  of the craft.  Whether you select the  lowest or the highest  priced garments, you will  find the same attention'  has been given to every  detail.  An inspection of our  Wardrobes will show you  better than words what  Fit-Reform   offers   you.  Mr. Jas.Davey, of 7SU telliue Avenue,  Winnipeg says:���"A few months sinew  1v was cured of a poisoned finger  thiough the timely use (if Zam-Buk.  "I cut a deep gash across thu knuckle  on the first finger of my right hand  in opening a ,lobster can. 1 suffered  at the time with the soreness and pain  but had no idea it would become a  serious wound. Howi-ver, in about two  days I was gieatly alarmed; -as my  whole hand and arm to the elbow became suddenly inHaiijed, and the finger  was much discolored showing signs  of blood-poisoning. The pain was  dieadtul and 1 was fenced to leave off  iuv woik/ind go home.  "The wound on the knuckle had  been poisioned by dust and dirt getting into it. I then decided to start  the Zam Buk treatment, bnd having  fht.1 bathed the cut, I applied the healing balm. It soothed the pain almost  instantly, aud by next day there was  a great improvement.  "tn a week's time, through perse-'  \erance, with this wonderful preparation, a complete cine was brought  about."  Zam Buk is just as good for eczema,  ulcers, scalp soies, abscesses, piles,  ringworm, boils, vaiicosc ulcers, running sores, cold sores, chapped hands,  etc. It draws all poisonous foulness  from a wound or sore and then heals.  Use it, too. for cuts, burns, bruises and  all skin injuries. Zam-Buk Soap should  be used in conjunction to the balm for  washing wounds and sore places. Excellent, too, for baby's bath.

Saturday, Nov. 23, 1912  Mr. Neugebauer's Letter  Our statement a couple of weeks  ago that in the light of recent events  in    the   near     east,     the    German  methods used   in the Turkish army  have   not   reflected  much   credit on  the   chief of   the  German   General  staff, has evidently roused the ire of  a   certain   local   champion    of   the  Fatherland,   and in   a letter  10 the.  Pioneer he emphatically pronounces  our   somewhat   mild    criticism 'vas  unjust-���"an  insult   to the   German  army and  Kaiser."    The blame for  the  Turkish   military   disasters    he  seenis   to   attribute   to    the    well-  known    Ottoman    love    for    graft  which played such sad havoc among  the commissariat, transport and ordnance departments, . in    which  our  informant says  there were   no German officers, but if there  had been,  says our arm-chair critic,   "the war  news would have been vastly differ-  from   what  they   are."    The latter  is   however a  doubtful supposition,  and   we   are   as   much   in   order as  Mr. Neugebauer if we assert to the  contrary, for if the tactics have been  abortive, and the Krupp artillery ineffective, there is little reason for us  to suppose that German direction of I  other     departments     would     have  materially   altered   the   course   that  events have taken.  Our mentor also gives credit to  the Turkish soldier for possessing  some intelligence, and evidently is  not satisfied with his previous explanation of the Turkish rout, for  he adds that "no intelligent Turkish officer or soldier can see any  cause for which he should fight,  when they can   see   that  the Chris  The Central Hotel  NEAREST HOTEL TO FAMOUS GRANBY MINES  maammumfmamimmiammmtasmaani i i   i ii^wM����wiwMiMMWW��MWWw��www��pwwWM^w>wwMwwwwwiwiTriw^wiwwi-MnnnnBm-  FIRST-CLASS ACCOMMODATION  FOR   MINERS  Bar Stocked with the Finest Line of Wines, Liquors, Cigars  A. O. JOHNSON     -    -     Proprietor  Fruit Packing Schools  The Department of Agricultu  in accordance with its policy of the  past three years, will continue the  fruit packing schools during the  coming winter. . The- packing  schools proved even more popular in  1912 than previously and we expect,  from the number of applications already in, that there will be a great  growth in tbe work this winter. It  is hoped that this year schools will  be placed in every fruit district of the  Province, where a sufficient number  of pupils can be secured.       '  The class of instruction fnrnished  by the experts employed by.ahe Department in previous years/ has demonstrated its efficiency in the competition of Oregon and Washington  in fruit packing. The experience  and standing": of the instructors  secured and the confidence reposed  in them by the Department, guarantee to the fruit growers the highest  class Q,f instruction.  ���As in previous years the local-administration of the packing schools  will be placed in the hands of a responsible local body, such as the  Farmers' Institute, the Fruit Growers' Association, or the Board of  Trade..  The; Department of Agriculture  provides the instructor and pa^-  his expense's. V-'The Department will  also bear ;the> cost of the packing  paper,'the fruit and all other legitimate expenses, except that of the  secretarial work, which it has been  found imost satisfactory to leave  to local arrangement.  The   responsible   organization   in  each case will be required to guarantee a minimum of twelve pupils, but  not more than fifteen,   with the pro  per qualifications, at a fee of three  dollars each, to take  the twelve les  MINED YOUR SYSTEM  The nerrea control all actions of tbe body so that any*  thing that debilitates jhem will weaken all organs of  the. system.

If there  is, or ever was, they have put it to  a strange use when they almost  exterminated the Armenian Christians of Anatolia and Sassun.  In our article we also drew attention   to   the   strange   affection    the  Kaiser  has  displayed   for that   unspeakable reprobate, the dethroned  sultan, an   affection   so   strong that  ���Wilhelm    even   prayed   to   the  Al-  mighty    to     bless     the   wholesale  murderer.      Mr.    Neugebauer   has  taken a note of this, and, being unable   to   deny   its   truth,   airily   explains that it's only  one  of Willie's  little   artful  dodges.       He    doesn't  mean   it   at   all.     It's  only another  instance    of diplomatic    hypocrisy,  a   cunning   political   subterfuge    to  enable that divinely-appointed  monarch lo   increase his trada  interests  in Palestine, etc., and more wonderful   still,    provide    the   pilgrims   of  all nations  with  the   necessary protection   while   visiting  those  places  rendered sacred by their association  with the   life on   earth   of the Great  Master.     Now, while   we  freely admit the possible truth ofthe former,  we emphatically reject the latter as  a reason   for   the  Kaiser's   affection  for his   beloved Abdul, and   in passing    we    might   mention    that    the  Emperor might easily  rid himself of  any   anxiety as  to the   safety of the  French  or  British   pilgrims.     Their  interests will   be admirably watched  over   by    their   respective    governments, without the necessity  of any '  assistance from "William the Spectacular."

Sir:���I almost overlooked two articles  in your issue of Nov. 2, and only yesr  torday happened to notice them, one  article a critic against the German  army, the other a critic against the  German emperor. As the contents of  these articles look pretty much .like a  challenge against people of German  nationality if not to mention a sheer insult against tho German army and emperor, I take it upon myself to explain  matters in! this regard a little better  to you than your articles show you to  understand them, viz: The German emperor has for many years past been  striving to redeem the Holy land (Palestine) to the whole Christian world, to  render it easy of access to pilgrimages  to the city of Jerusalem and other  points where Christ has been known  to live, to teach and to suffer, etc. The  German emperor also has through pretended friendships for the sultan succeeded to colonize Palestine with many  thousands of German subjects, so that  nearly every other person in Palestine  is a German, besides Germany has  built and is controlling some thousand  miles of railroad in Palestine, Syria,  Asia Minor into Persia and established  large industrial and trade interests in  those countries and hence this pretended friendship of the German emperor  for the unspeakable Turk, which friendship is simply to insure the protection  of the Turkish ruler and government  for the German subjects and interests  in the Ottoman empire.    Perhaps  you  have seen in some newspaper cartoons  more than once which showed the  heads of various countries are shaking  hands and drinking each others' health,  while the left hand is busily engaged  holding a murderous weapon behind  their backs ready 'to 'plunge them into  the other fellow when he least expects  it. As for German officers in Turkish  service the same may be said, but it is  also a fact that the prejudice of the  Turkish officers is rendering the efforts  of the German officers ignored and  powerless, besides the Turkish quartermaster department at Constantinople  and other Turkish strongholds, whose  duty it was to provide clothing, food  and ammunition for the army and navy,  have been rampant with fraud, bribery  and inefficiency "of the worst kind as all  newspapers show, and no German officer  was over connected with this department, and if there had been, the war  news would have been vastly different  to what they are. As a mattor of fact  the Turkish soldiers lacked food to keep  body and soul together with, and ammunition to fight with. Moreover, no  intelligent Turkish soldier or officer can  see any cause for which he should fight  and give his life, when they can sec  that the Christian population of Turkey  und the Balkan States were outraged  by the Turkish government for centuries past, and who are bound to find  it their holiest duty to light to the bitter end and throw off the Turkish rule  and atrocities for ever.
