The trio were out early on  Wednesday,   and- although   practically   only hunting for a few hours,  they succeeded   in bagging one deer  between   them.

Tag- Day Dance  Tag Day in  aid of the B.C. Base  Hospital was celebrated throughout  the   province   on   Saturday   of   last  week.     In   Phoenix,   however,   the  members  of the Woman's Patriotic  society held a dance in   lieu of a tag  day, and by   that   means  raised approximately the sum of $85.     Dancing started   rather  late,   but   by the  time 10.30 had arrived Thos. Brown  and J.   V.    Ingram   reported having J  taken  145 tickets.     Supper was also  included, and   full  justice was   done  to the   appetizing   repast   served by  the ladies at midnight.     The   Ironsides orchestra provided a lively and  catchy   selection   of music,  among  the numbers being  the   now famous  "Tipperary," and everyone present,  without exception, appeared   to  enjoy themselves to the   fullest extent.  Among the dancers   were  a number  of visitors  from outside points, one  of whom   expressed   the   sentiment  that other places he knew with more  pretentious claims to publicity "had  nothing on   Phoenix   when   it   came  to a dance."

We whispered it. We murmured it. We discredited it. We  denied it. Had the emperor himself appeared on that day he would  have been hissed.

"Later when Lieutenant Hersing  visited the officers' quarters, one  bold naval officer handed him a  newspaper containing the account  of the sinking of the Lusitania.  Hersing crumpled the sheet with  fury, cast them on the floor and  faced m's insulter threateningly.  Then the offending officer shook his  head and in a low tone muttered  'No, not with you.'  "Still later, when Lieut. Hersing  entered a room where I was seated  with many other officers, all but  five left the room.

The  police   state   that  a  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH  ISM  MINERAL   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITIES���  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an. immense amount of interest is >eing directed to the recent  free gold discovery,in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a hot inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on. all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of'the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point, to the almost entire,absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province;  AGRICULTURE ANLY FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also.worthy of investigation, and  a visit  to some  of its   spendidly. equipped���or-  chards will prove~a-re/velation to the stranger./-   The highways throughout,the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spenton the .construction of government roads.

Owing to persistent rumors that  armed German merchantmen have  been sighted in the South Pacificy  the Japanese government have despatched a number of cruisers to enquire into the matter. Advices from  Australia place one of the ships in  the eastern Pacific in the neighborhood of the Panama canal.  The British war office paid a tribute to the efficiency of Canadian  nurses by selecting, or rather commandeering, fifteen of the first detachment that were sent from this  country. These nurses are now actively at work in the military hospitals at Malta, which are full of  wounded from the battles at the  Dardandelles.  The mystery over the disappearance of Captain Smart of the 53rd  Sihks, has been cleared up by the  death in France of "Private H. S.  Smart," of the 6th West Surrey  Regiment. The officer, who was  attached to the Khyber Rifles, obtained a short leave, but made his  way home to England and enlisted  as a private. In the action at Fes-  tubert he so distinguished himself  that if he had lived he would have  been granted some special distinction. In view of the special circumstances connected with the case, the  king has revoked the order of his  dismissal from the Indian army.  Adam Bloonifleld, Noble Grand, j  Thos. Lloyd, Fin. Secy.

In one case the scene was a  fashionable cafe in London.  A lady,  dressed   in   the  height  of fashion,  was seen to rise from her seat, walk  deliberately over to a young man sitting at the far end of the room, and  place a huge  white ostrich feather  in front of him.   All eyes'were turned on him as he rose with difficulty  and limped from the apartment.   He  was one of the heroes of Mons, and  a convalescent from one of the hospitals.     Another case, concerning a  young fellow  who had  been  thrice  rejected,   was  investigated   by  the  coroner of a London borough.     He  was found lying dead in  his room  with a revolver near him.'   The previous   evening  he   had , found   his  father's, letter box stuffed with white  feathers.
