LOCAL AND UIJSTRCT.
Mr. C. de B. Green is surveying up
ithe north fork of the Kettle Kiver.
Mr. II. Rodgeis came in last week
from Spokane, and is about to make
.an inspection of our camps,
Mr. Gordon, of Grand Prairie, has
moved into his new store, and taken
.over the post office,
Four pre-emptions have been taken
up in tliu last few days, in I liis neighborhood, It will not be long before
the whole districl. is settled.
Mr. Mclnnes returned lust Wednesday with his gang, having completed
the work on the I'Oad oyer ('amp Mc*
Kintiey mountain, Ho will now give
his attention (o the Boundary mountain section. The Improvements already carried oul are greatly appreciated by those having to make constant
luse of the highway. Yet at lhe s-inie
time the regret is openly expressed,
that the Government should he su circumstanced as not to lie able to spend
a sufficient amount, of money, ns would
put this main trunk road inathoiough
.state of repair, as the present state of
development, of tbe district makes il
almost imperative that such should be
4one.
Thos,e who are at all skeptical as to
the adaptability of litis district lo fruit
.culture, would have llieir doubt* removed, should they take a look at the
flue young orchard set out this spring
near the town, upon Messrs. M-Lamb
,k Roberts' place. The trees which are
.of different varieties, such as pears,
apples, prunes, cherries, etc, are all in
the most flourishing condition, and are
.a credit to Ihe climate and locality.
•These gentlemen are also experimenting with liiliaccii, having taken charge
of tlie plants sent down from the Mission ; and up to the presenl lbe result
lis everything that could ho desired,
und the young plants are gr in lug vigorously,

.and of a sufficient size to carry 200

Messrs. iioAuloy & Lundy have
hough!, otlt the livery liusiness formerly curried till liy Messrs. B. k McKay
lngrmi, nud will run the same in con-
peclion with theii' hotel.
A general expression of regret greeted the news Hint Mrs. Macdonald, formerly our public school lonelier here,
had decided tu leach at her home, Lad-
jijja B.C., thereby severing her connection with Midway, and the many
warm friends she had attached to ber
during her sojourn iu our midst,
Colonel Doyle came down from
.Camp McKinney on Friday's stage,
and proceeded on to .Spokane, nnd
Butte, Mon. The Colonel seems very
much pleased wilh the result of the
development yyqplf, so fnr carried out
on the Cariboo, and confidently asserts
that Trail Creek will not, in the near
future, be the only mining camp in
British Columbia, which will he able
tp boast of amine.
On Friday evening last a dance was
given at Mr. Scott Mcltae's ranch,
popper Creek, and was much enjoyed
by those preseot. Thu music was supplied by Messrs. McRae ami McLaren,
who with others from Grand Prairie
took pint in tlie festivities, whicli lasted till early dawn,
Ihe number of disreputable and ill-
conditioned curs whicli are to he. seen
about the town, is something appalling. We would suggest that tlie leading men of the town—the school trustees, or the townsite agent, for example,—should offer a liiniiity per caplln •
he reward to be regulated on a sliding
scale proportionately to the ugliness of
the animal destroyed,
A Happy Event,

is made that on Sal urijay last at the
Manse, Grand Braille, the Kov, Mr.
Paton officiating, Mr. W. JI. Roy of
Boundary Falls and Mrs Davis, recently of the same place and formerly uf
Spokane, were united in tlie bonds of
holy matrimony, After tbe ceremony
the happy couple returned to their
home, and on Sunday evening about
fifty of their most intimate friends embraced the opportunity of paying their
Inspects, and of accepting the hospilnl;

With a lavishisbness for which Ur,

MINING NOTES.
Messrs. Murphy nnd Jenkins of
Botte, Mon. are sampling the Snow-
shoe, Greenwood Camp.
Mr. E. S. Graham has two men
working on Ihe Texas claim, Ingbram
mountain, and others will he put on
shortly.
J. C. Haas left for Deadwood Camp
on Friday morning, to inspect some of
the principal claims there.
Messrs. Rosenhaupt and Coles, of
Spokane, directors of the Boundary
Creek Milling Co., paid Midway a
visit last week.
Mr. C. 0, Sands is doing the assessment work on the Excelsior, a southeast extension of the Golden Rod. The
vein is from 0 to 7 feet.
Messrs. Mangott and McEncbran are
developing the enst vein of the Morning Star claim, Fairview, by sinking a
shaft.
Mr. 0. A. U. Brown passed through
Midway oil Thursday last, on his way
to the iSimilakaiiieen, where he has
mining Interests,
Mr. G. K. Reed is expected in, dally.
Work will recommence on the Last
Chance un Ills arrival.
T. Keotigh is reported to have bonded his Interests in Suniinit Camp to tlie
Did Dominion Co.. iu Colville,
W. T. Smith left on Thursday morning for Greenwood Camp, on his way
out to Spokane,
Mr. Douglas has returned to Skylark Camp after a prospecting tour of
some weeks around Camp McKinney.
The Yankee Boy and Yankee Girl,
Grand Prairie, which were located this
spring liy Mr. 0, C, Sanaa for some
eastern capitalists, are looking first-
rate; the Yankee Boy running $77 in
gold, and the Yankee Girl $187. Mr.
Sands informs us that a ten-stamp mill
will he operating on these properties
before snow flies.  We hope so.
Last week Mr, 0. L. Thomet came
down from Long Lake Camp, and
brought with him some ore specimens
taken from tlie bottom of the incline
shaft, on his claim the North Star,
upon which he is now working. These
samples are among the finest that
have been exhibited at Midway this
summer, and au assay from them gave
the enormous return of $0,(100 per ton
gold. It is not necessary to say that
gold was visible lo tiie naked eye, even
before the assay was made, the figure
is only quoted to give an idea of the
richness of the rock.
Samuel S. Fowler, M.M.E., of Chicago, who has been Investigating our ore
bodies fur sonic time past, was in Midway last week. He is much surprised
with lhe extraordinary volume of the
mineral deposits iu Greenwood and
Copper Camps | and we understand is
negotiating for a smelter to ho placed
where il can best treat the Boundary
district, iii-es. Mr. Fowler has also been
into Long Lake Camp, antl is much
pleased wilh the progress of development, aiul considers its future possibilities, in regard In lhe handling of (he
free-milling quartz ledges there, to be

FASHION FADS*
Cat-away jackets of velvet aro much
liked by young girls.
Sleeveless jackets of various materials
with passementerie edgings are popular.
A dress of cloth witli a narrow moire
jiniiol down the front is among tlie new
imperial ions.
Muffs are somewhat larger than heretofore. Many muffs will be used during tiie
coming winter without, other furs.
Capes of moire are trimmed with fur
collars and lined witli bright silk. Olio of
tbe handsomest of these garments wns
recently made to order and lined with very
et iff brocade.
Ermine, from becoming popular, luis
become a fad, and every woman who lias

"So many conditions siua ml lhe

rules, il Is nf course a mailer uf great
importance In be able iii estimate beforehand whal the approximate ensl nf
I renting any given "re will be, and I his
Insk lias often l" be ipleiupled. In
preparing hucIi i*stlmiiles lhe Fullowing
points arc il ics thai need the  si
careful alleulion,
1. Uharaclei' of the oro, ll is ovl-
deill ibnl Lwonresof equal assay value

latter than nf '.he former in lbe same
lime, and also llie luss in ibe slimes
will be greater, Again, a hard, lough
ore will cost inert' In crush t.huu a friable, easily broken nne.
2, As to available power. -II is well-
known Ihal lhe cheapest available,
power is witter, which costs but little
more than lhe interest on ihe capital
Invested in constructing lbe necessary
water course and creeling lbe nioloi's,
The nullity in keeping these in repair
being generally a small Item. When
water power is noL available nndsleaui
lias tn be used, Hie quality and price of
Lhe fuel nlil.-iiiia'i!'- is a very iuiportanl
feature tu (-(insider. II is estimated
on uu average Ibal n i if quarlz requires I'm- ils reduction 0.06 tons ofcoal
ni-0.07 cords of wood; these figures
ranging from 0.1X1 tn 0,10 In lbe case nf
eniil, aii(| friaiil.it! In ».l:i in fheraseof
wunil, being influenced principally by
lbe qualit) nf lhe fuel available, The
inipiii'tatiee of llie ensl and quality of
fuel can (ht'rofni'c be readily appreciated,
!l. The labor esliinnle. This is an
ileui that inay vary wilhin oooy wide
limils. Mod of Iiu. labor i-t-tjnifi-ci
ai'tiund a slniiip llllll i( skilled labor,
and Ihis isnftcu dear in proportion as
unskilled labor is cheap, ll isesllinal-
ed as the average resull nf iitiineroiis
ibseryiiliulis, Ihal iu Ibia cnnnlry each
ton of quart'/, crushed requires ihe labor nf one man for two hours: within
lbe lasl len years, however, very considerable ecniloniies in ibis respect
have been IntnltliiiTil.
I. Size nf lhe mill.- -Tills is uf course,
governed by lhe available supply nf
ure, und is, within curtain limils nne of
lhe mosl mipnrlnul elements uf the
cosl of milling, Thus il lubes few
more men to allend n sixty slaiiiplhe.n
a len slump mill. So that lhe ensl uf
labor per tun Is but littio more for llie
large mill than one-sixth nf Ibnl for
Ilm small iniil. On lhe nlhor hand, a
•iln-slamn mill will require nearly three
limes as many hands ns ll slxly-slainp
mill; so Ibal, il may be considered Ihal,
the liini! nf economy as regards mill
lai in- is iilniosl reached in n mill of
sixly or eighty s.lai.qn. Of course ill
tltlnfl: items of cost, such I'm- instance
ns management, supervision, assay da-
pai'liiien1, elc, lbe large mill, whatever its size, enHla scarcely any more
than dues the smaller nne.
6. Location,—As the cost of mill and
other supplies form a largo element in
the ensl nf milling, llie comparative
prices of these, which nre largely determined by lbe cost i,t lri|us|'ii-la.|i(iu
to tho mill, effect greatly the ensl nt
ilm operation; lhe wear and tear nf
tlio mill amounts to but. Utile in comparison.

small Importance depending upon Iho
Inc il nr accidental larciimslnnces which

which call only lie discovered by investigating the liullllll insl  nf  milling   ill
