This will be  the fourth dividend of three per cent  paid by this" company since taking  over the famous Nickel Plate property at, .Hedley  on  Aug,   13, 1909,  and will make a total disbursement  of $143,760 in dividends!  !  The   profits  of the Hedley Gold  Mining company baye^been running  close to $30,000 per month  and indicates   the   company    is    earning  about $2 per share on its outstand-  ing capital.

C. COPPER'S MINES  >     Nelson Fair Attractions  The free attractions at the Nelson  Fair this year to, be held three days,  commencing Wednesday, September 28th, are far away ahead of any  thing previously attempted, a glance  through the acts already engaged  will convince one that great expense has been incurred in securing  such notable attractions at the Five  Flying Banvards, in their marvellous leaping and casting act 50 feet  in the air. Some idea of this act  may be realized when we are told  that the space required is 50 feet in  breadth and 60 feet in length. This  act is without doubt one of the  strongest of its kind on the continent; at one time it was the sensation of Berlin, Germany, since when  it has been featured with the Ring-  ling Bros, and all the big circusses.  Another act of national reputation  is the Leojoe Troupe of three ladies  and two gentlemen in a marvellous  and refined bicycle act; still another  good comedy act "La Cattella and  La Folletta," The Fool and the Circus' Girl. Professor Darnell, the  Fearless Aeronaut, has also been  engaged to make a Balloon Ascension and*Parachute Leap.  *  Ore Dumps Take Tumble ."

''*?^ia\^i\^  Alton Matheson had a very close  Orient, Wash., early next week to  inspect  the"-property," where  call on Sunday, when a gun he was  holding fell and accidentally dis-r  charged, the;pickles of shot causing  deep flesh wounds on his body and  face.  With Tohn McDonald he was out  shooting grouse and was standing  with a .foot on each of two logs,  holding .the gun,,cocked, and muzzle  upwards in front of him, when the  weapon fell and was discharged by  the trigger striking av log. The  charge passed upwards parallel .with  his body, tearing his clothing and  inflicting deep flesh wounds. The  shot also grazed his face and blew  his hat off.  The accident occurred near the  Skylark mine after which he walked  to the Phoenix road and was driven  home. The wounds were dressed,  and none are considered serious,  but it is not likely Alton will forget  the experience for a time.   ���   Will Develop Combination  F. J. Whaley, of the Spokesman-  Review, and M. Bartholomew, of  Spokane, were in Phoenix this week  for the purpose of inspecting their  mining interests in the Boundary.  They control the Combination mine,  near the Providence, north of Greenwood, and have let a contract for  the sinking of a shaft and other development work. John Bergman  and L. P. Olsen have taken the  contract/  it  is  understood the company have under  consideration the construction of a  mill and cyanide plant, the Napoleon  haying   developed  a' large tonnage  of promising ore.

The movement is due to a statement, issued semi-officially, to the  effect that the company has now  $250,000 in its treasury and $100,-  000 in ore in transit, and that as  soon as the treasury has been  strengthened to the extent of $500,-  000, the question of a dividend on  the stock will be taken up.  During the last few months,  British   Columbia's   earnings   have  Great excitement has been aroused  in,the C re stop district, by the /discovery .of rich' placer ,golci deposits  in the bed of the Goat river. Iifa  Beam, an, old-time prospector an;d  gold miner, who has passed through  some of the greatest gold rushes in  Western - America including the  stampede to Nevada, is the lucky  discoverer of these claims. About a  year ago Beam was observed panning gold dust on sections of the  Goat river, but it was thought to be  only another instance of a prospec-  tor's madness. Suddenly he ap-  peared inv town' on Thursday last  with some very fine specimens; of  coarse gold and the fnews leaked out  that he had located bsyo/claims just  above the canyon in the Goat riyer.  A rush at once occurred to the  vicinity of the finds. Messf &. Stocks  and Jackson and J. McNarlimd were  the first wise ones and they feave  taken three claims close to the ones  filed on by the original located. Up  to the present time eighteen claims  in all have been staked.  A few days ago work at Erickson  was entirely suspended while the  adult population hastened out to secure   claims.     Pannings   had given  been very light, but this is attributable to the stagnant condition of the  fifteen colors to the pan  of coarse  copper market, with   the  prevailing gold.    Traces of the precious metal  low prices on the metal. In view of  the statement of the company's  present treasury condition, it is believed that recent statement of  monthly earnings have been reported  on copper only.  have been found fifty to sixty feet in  the batiks of the stream, and in the  bed of the river gold is believed to  be present in paying quantities, as  the pannings give better results  right down to the water.  *  i / ���  mMuiwikttiiim ��sa  .<" f  jj '������  J*  V >  it *  t V*  arte  *   I  "(��t,  <   <  hi, ���   ��<  Presented With Jewel  i,     David^jhiteside, formerly a bar*  \ rister of this city but who has obeen  /pr&tising'in  Grand  Forks' for the  /past seVerai*years/ and is .leaving in  /a few days to accept a position in  > i   &##��� kttbrnly^ene'ral's office at Vic,  ?F#*\ ^y'l^n^rwas^presented  with'a   Past;  %$$ ify '<'- '     grand's1 jewel/by Gateway, Lodge,,  W&#>1 I'' "' <     l/O.O.F.,<at>GrandForksonThurs-;  k//>,* ���" " dj��revenin|r, .

■<& Boundary Side Lights  The .Greenwood Liquor company  received two carloads of Pabst beer  this week.  The Boy Scouts of Greenwood  gave a dance and soiree on Thursday evening.  J. P. McLeod, formerly barrister  of Greenwood, is now deputy attorney-general for the province.   ,  The Argo Mining company will  erect ore bins and sampling equipment, at their tunnel near Greenwood.  Two carloads of prunes were  shipped from J. D. \ Honsberger's  orchard, near Grand Forks, this  season.  Miss Helen McEwen of Grand  Forks has been appointed teacher of  the new school recently completed  at lower Rock Creek.  John McKellar, will re-open the  Union hotel at Eholt, which has  been closed "for some weeks, having  been granted a license.  The Grand Forks Union, Western  Federation of Miners, has decided  to give a series of free concerts during the winter months.  R. A.. Brown of Grand Forks has  just completed an eight-mile trail  through the famous Cedar Valley  timber limits up the North Fork.  The Greenwood Ledge says its  editor received a box of "mixed"  fruir from a subscriber at Peach-  land; eyidentally they were not all  lemons.  All transportation lines are   offer-"  ing reduced rates for the great Nelson fair, which is  held on, Wednesday,   Thursday   and   Friday,   Sept.  28th, 29th and 30th.  David Good and Robert Perry  leave this week for Kelowna with a  pack of horses. They will pack  supplies from that town to the  Kettle River railway surveyors.  Indians and old-timers of the  country predict the coming winter a  particularly cold one, basing their  predictions on the fact that all fur-  bearing animals are getting ready  for a severe season.  Mr.;and Mrs. John D. Spence  left Greenwood yesterday for Toronto, where > Mr. Spence will in  future practice law. General regret  is expressed at their departure from  Greenwood, where they, have long  been esteemed residents, and where  Mr. Spence has been most, successful in the legal profession. The  Liberal association of Greenwood,  with which Mr. Spence had been  prominently, identified, presented  him with a gold-headed cane at a  smoker in his honor Tuesday evening. E. R. Redpath made the presentation on behalf of/the asspcia-  tion. .'- V .    ��� ���>��� '   ' r  The  chilly  weather has arrived,  Fall is now  upon us and you will be requiring a new Fall  King Edward's Salary  The "board and keep" of the late  King Edward in the nine years of  his reign cost England $42,438,772,  or $4,715,419,per annum, according  to official figures just,, made, public.

Canadian Home Journal  Newspapers of the Dominion long  ago received ' the confidence and  support of Canadians, but the magazines have had ac harder lot. We  are therefore especially pleased at  the success of our native publications. The growth of the Canadian  Home Journal has been an example,  'not only of material progress but of  steadily increasing; quality until it  compares favorably with any woman's magazine in'America. Cer-  tainly.at the price of $1.00 it; offers  by far the best value. ,  With September number the size  has been greatly increased and the  magazine starts the sixth year of its  existence much larger than ever Be-5  fore, excellently printed and illus-  trated, and ^with - attractive covers.  September being Autumn Fashion  Number, naturally there is a wide  range of choice in women's, girls'  and children's clothes. The housekeepers' departments are excellent  with recipes, suggestions for different departments of the household  and for the dressing table.  Grand Forks Fair  Everything points to a very successful fall fair at Grand Forks on  Oct. 4th and 5th. This will be the  initial exhibition held in the Gateway city and the committees in  charge of the event are sparing no  pains to make it not only, one of  credit to the city, but one of credit  to the ��� Boundary district. There  will be the two parts to the fair; .the  educative and amusement, in both  of which the committee have a multitude of attractions. The exhibits  will be particularly representative of  the interior of British Columbia with  its varied lines of product. A good  program of sports have been arranged for and .will include' a baseball tournament,    .i^**   ",.-"  11  Autumn Began Yesterday  Yesterday afternoon summer had,  its official ending arid Autumn be-  gan. Itf was i then that ' old/rSol  made his annual pilgrimage across  the Equator on his journey to southern climes. It is true ,that according; to our methods of< measuring,  time the Sun is slightly ahead of his  schedule. It takes* him twenty and  one third minutes less than a com-  plete revolution ,bf the earth around  the Sun to complete his Journey from  one autumnal equinox^to; the next.*  Therefore if we were to count a full  revolution of, the earthJ around the  sun' as' the time between the two-  autumnal equinoxes in 13,000 years  we would ^ find ourselves in the  -Northern hemisphere having ice harvest in July and wheat harvest, in  January. In Canada,- time is regulated from the McGill College Conservatory in Montreal,- and at regular  intervals is checked up with Washington".
