CABE 4.10 HANDLING OF MILK.
Paper   Itcnil    Before   the   Provincial
Dairyman's Aaaoflnl|pil by Mr.
Caswell.
In speaking of thia .subject, some
iCoiisideration and a little patience is
asked, not that I wish to offer air excuse, or in any way belittle tlje subject
matter of this paper, but long before
my time dairymen took care of and
handled milk, But in what manner?
And wherein does the avetuge dairyman, nl I ha present period of advanced
dairy science, show that- lm )ius kept
pace with the tunes*' How iniiny up.
to-diite dairymen do you know of in
your section ? Yui| can count them on
your fingers and still have a digit or
two left,
To sell milk to the consumer, satisfy
him and keep his (rude, clean milk, free
from contamination, unadulterated,
and at the same time giving nil that
the cow provides, becomes a necessity.
To sell ipilk to the creamery or cheese
foctory the same rule applies. You
cannot, expect your butter or cheese
maker to produce an article that will
sell readily and command the tup price
when you supply him with poor material. Give him honest milk, free
from objectionable features, then his
skill will be apparent and you may
look for the besl, results. Some one
says this means additional labor, I ask
yon do you expect something for nothing? Your answer is, no. Well, that
is about what it means when you supply faulty piilk. I am not, however,
going Ut touch any point outside the
care and bandllngof milk. Your cows
are in the barn, and this, of course, is
built and kept on proper principles.
The cows nre ready for the milker's
hand. Here I must nsk, for many
reasons, that each one milks his own
string regularly, They must be clean
milkers; this has a two-fold meaning,
hut I have particular reference to the
cleanly part of the business.
By no menus allow your help to milk
with a wet hand. After a person has
milked a cow ur two just take the pains
to notice his hands, nnd probably you
will linn something dropping into the
pail. Where else can it go but into
tho milk, and what is ninreaboniiiiable
than this moisture from the hot, dirty
hands and udder, filling the milk with
j!s foul flavor, not fit to drink, and
equally as unsuitable for inr'nifactur-
ing. Butter or cheese- the pr odtrct of
such milk, the longer you keep then,
tlie more unsaleable they become.
Milk with a dry hand and as well have
a clean hand. After your cow is
milked at once strain and aerate the
milk.
Those who use a screen or gauze
strainer commit a great fault from the
fact that ils action is on the suction
principle; it deposits and holds the
tilth on the surface of Ihe strainer
ready for the next pailful uf milk to
strike and force the liner portion
through the strainer. Much better are
llie cone or pyramid strainci-s, so constructed that the motion of the milk
is a rotary one, continually throwing
to tbe outside all filth, thus keeping
the strainer free from dirt. I certainly
recommend a strainer that docs away
with cloth of any kind,
The process of iteration should take
place while the straining is going on.
For when the milk is fresh from the
cow its fnults are more readily got rid
of. Then the animal odor and any
others that may he iu the milk are iu
the form of gas, and being exposed lo
the air easily pass off. Right here let
me say this operation must take place
where you have pure air. Prof. Robertson is authority fol1 the statement
that these odors arc nothing more nor
less than bacteria, aud when exposed
to the air they cease to exist, subject,
of course, to pure air at a lower toin*
perature than the milk. However, by
careful aeration you extend the life of
your milk, make it more palatable
food, and put it in such shape that the
manufacturer can have more chance to
produce a fancy article than if otherwise.
I will just add a word here regarding
the use of "preservatives." Their use
and abuse stand very close together, so
close, in fact, that I fenr their use at all.
Your milk is now ready for the milk
house. Keep this place clean, well lit
and give plentyof ventilation. A tight
lldcir,' is needful, and keep milk and
milk, alone in this room. I shall not
speak of setting milk or handling it by
the separator process, as I am in I liis
paper trying to reach the milk vendor.
Everyone has his own particular
way of taking care uf milk vessels and
utensils, but, there is, after all is said
and done, the right way, and that hi to
thoroughly clean your cans and utensils hy first removing the scum and dirt
with tepid water, then wash well, using
s/uiic of the many good compounds
that are to be had; then scald and
rinse mid hang mil in the sun and air
so thnt they will lose Hull o\im MWsl
that si\ distinctly belongs lo'.hc dairy's
utensils,
In conclusion,see Ilinl, your cows are
nol abused.  See Unit lhey get utauy
and all times plenty of pure water.
Have your but n so constructed that
ventilation is thorough and at the
same time will keep them comfortable.
Keep it clean as well as its surroundings, and keep the cows clean. Milk
them clean wilh clean hands used hy
clean milkers who are cleanly in their
habits, Strain and aerate your milk
properly. Keep all the utensils that
come in contact with your product in a proper manner. Always re.
member that milk that is cooling is
just then absorbing qualities from its
surroundings,

MINING   NOTES.
A factory for the manufacture of ore
sacks will shortly be completed in New
Denver. The proprietors expect to Iw
able to supply the entire country with
this necessary (to mining men) article.
The complaint of Minors at Thrcii
Forks concerning the blockade of
ore, the result of frequent mud
slides, has been attended tu with
considerable promptitude by the
0. P. H. authorities at Montreal,
Additional gangs of workmen have
been employed by them to keep the
line clear, and another has been put

The Anglo-American Quid and Plati.
iiuin Mining Company are making

approaching completion, fhe engineer reports that the facilities for the
operation of hydraulic mining leave
nothing lo be dcilred.
The Ledge, of New Denver, makes a
proud boast that there arc as yet nu
Chinamen in the Slocan, asserting that
few camps in British Columbia can lay
claim to a like happy state of affairs,

History or the War Englo Mine.
P. Clark is reported in the Spokes-
man-Review as giving the fullowing
history of the War Kagle.deal:
."Islipped into Ihe camp one day
more than n year ago," lie said, " iind
made a study of the different pros,
pects. Right in the start I was im.
pressed with the length 'and strength
of the ore bodies, bul was prejudiced
against the camp by the discouraging-
reports made by others about the low
grade of the ore. I made up my mind
that if there was any fairly high
grade ore |n there it would be worth
considering, an I gal hcrcd about 200,
samples, took them up in Ihe Coeun
d'Alene and hud them treated leisurely
by our nssayer. At that time Mr. Bur*.
bidge had a bond on the War Eagle
for $la,Q0O. My samples showed me
that that was the property I wanted,
I was convinced that M.t\ Burbidge,
vyas working on air entirely different
ore chute from that from which I had
taken my samples, and that the re-,
turns he wns getting were not very
encouraging, and he would throw up
the bond, Several times I was on the
point of going to him and advising him
of what I had discovered, l-i-t, prudence
told me that would Ihi a mistake, so I
lay back and waited- The bond was
thrown up, and \ went in and rehondi
ed the property. But nt lint litne I
had no idea of striking such ore ns we
are now working In,  I figured on $25,

TAXATION OF MINERAL CLAIMS.
The miners and prospectors, who
are at present so busily engaged local •
ing claims in different parts uf the district (as a result of the amendment to
the Minetal Act, which places no restriction on the number of claims any
ono may locate, provided they are on
separate veins of ore), should remember that the same amendment contains another clause, which reads thus:
"Notwithstanding anything contained in the snid ' Mineral Act, 1801,'
or amendments thereto, mines and
moneys invested therein shall not bo
exempt from taxation, but shall hear
such rale as nuiv be Imposed by any
law In force in the Province."
After reading the above It will he
needless to polntout that the time will
come when a visit will be paid all mine
owners and owners of prospects by the
assessor, so that a valuation may be
made nf their property, and the above
tax collected thereon,
No logical reason can be adduced
why all classes of property should not
be taxed, yet at the snme time, considering that the holder of a mineral prospect already contributes to the revenue
of the Province the sum of $107.50 per
annum, and in many instances this
amount more than represents the value
of the property held by him, It would
have seemed more reasonable hud it
lieen enacted that mineral claims he-
low a certain ligure (say a $1,000
valuation) ihould be exempt from
such taxation, as it is obvious no further restriction than at present should have been imposed upon
the owners of properties of uncertain
valuation. As matters formerly stood,
the poor prospector paid dearly enough
for the satisfaction of proving the
worth of some of the claims upon
which he was tempted to carry on the
work of development, with the off
chance of their turning out well, without having this additional load placed
upon his already over-burdened should*
ers.
ADVERTISE.
" When is the next County Court to
lie held in Nicola?" wasa question put
to us a few days ago, and the answer
given naturally was,"turn to the local
paper and find out." Greatly was the
pu-ty surprised, therefore, when, on
turning over the pages of the Kamloops Sentinel (the paper published
nearest that locality) an advertisement
could not he found hearing upon thu
subject. Is this the result of negligence on the part of the officials who
should attend to such matters, or does
jt mean that the Government have
instituted a new system of economy?
We would wish to point out Unit it is
the evident duty of the managers of
local papers lo solicit for publication
notices affecting the public welfare,
just as it is the duty of the Government to see that such notices are published. Only by this means can
the people lie served, and they surely
are the ones who have to pay for such
service when rendered.
Messrs. Attwood, Wake and Patter-,
son went up Kettle River on Tuesday
last to prospect that locality.
There are about- seventy men at
work on the new road to Slate Creek,
and twenty at the Camp, Robertson
Creek,
On the 14th of April Messrs. Morgan
k Hetu located a claim adjoining the
Highland Queen. They have named
their new find "No. 10."
It is reported that Mr. F, W. Dick-
man located a claim in Wellington
Camp last Thursday the 18th. The
Dame of the location did not transpire,
The ledgo Is stated to be 8 ft, wide and
chiefly copper,
Mr. L. Bosshart who located tbe Aha
nu the 4th of April hns already donu
much devi'liipuiiuii work on his claim,
There is a 12 foot shaft, and a windlass
|s now being put up. The ore contains
a quantity of galena and the vein
shows up well,
The flywheel belonging lo the engine
at tbe Triune mine, near Loomiston,
Wash, was broken a few days ago.
The company has sent to San Francisco
for a new one. The shaft too was discovered to be out of the perpendicular.
Men are busy at work repairing and
re-tltu baring.
Those acquainted with Prof, BHvens
of Lnumistnn, who recently patented a
process for the extraction of gold and
silver from quartz, will he sorry to
hear that ho committed suicide on the
12th of April, The funeral took place
un the following Monday, It is stated
that morphine was the cause of death.

COUNTY COURT AT MIDWAY,
Before Ills Honor Judge Splnks.
This court was held on Monday tho
15th inst., instead of the previous Saturday as was intended.
The cases on the docket were as fol
lows; Smith v, Jackson; Kerr v. Hardy; Thos. McDonald and Overton v,
Sanders and Keithley; Thos, McDonald v. 0. Sanders,
The first case was adjourned until
the next court; the second was withdrawn by plaintiff; and the third aim
fourth cases were amicably settled by
the parties interested, when it was discovered on Saturday that a delay in
holding the court was necessary, owing to the absence of the Judge,
COUNTY COURT AT OSOYOOS.
Before His Honor .luilgc Splnkl.
A sitting of the County Court was
held here on the 1,1th, instead of on the
Ilth as was intended. The cause of
postponement was the detention of thi
judge in Vernon on judicial business,
The lirst case brought before His
Honor Judge Spinks was that of Thos.
Elliot vs. A. Johnson, in which Judgment was given for the plaintiff.
John T, Pralhei' vs. A. Johnson, In
this case also judgment was favorable
to the plaintiff.
The County Court business having
been disposed, of a silting of the Criminal Court was held, His Honor Judge
Spiuks presiding.
Louis Marcel and his two sons were
brought before the court, charged with
assault to do grievous bodily harm to
one Francois, an Indian. After a good
deal of evidence had been listened to
pro and con. the judge found them
guilty of the offence, and lined Marsel
$25 and costs, and his two sons $15 and
costs each.
The appeal brought forward by Li
Hung Ti, the Chinaman who was recently arrested at Camp McKinney
nnd convicted of vagrancy by Mr, W.
G. McMynn, .1. P., was thrown out
owing to the fact of its being informally brought before the court.
Ran Out of Dry Ore.
After running thirty days and turning out over BOO tons of bullion, the
furnace of the Pilot Bay smelter was
closed down, because there was not
enough dry ore on hand to keep it
running. For the lasl week it was
run on Blue Bell ore straight. TheNn,
1 mine at Ainsworth, owing to the
condition of the ronds, could not make
satisfactory shipments, and there wns
no other .dry ore in sight. The concentrator and roaster will be kept running
to their full capacity, and the furnace
will be started up again In about, two
weeks,

English Capitalists Interested.
Mi-; W. A. Waterman, the well-
known mining engineer, has returned
.frnuiA I rip to England, where he went
to interest capitalists in various milling enterprises in this Province. He
was successful in securing all the financial assistance he desired, and the result will he the development of several
claims in Cariboo and Similkauieen
during the coming season. Mr. Waterman leaves for Similkiimeen in the
course of a few days to inaugurate
prospecting work, and will afterwards
visit the gold claims on the west coast
of Vancouver Island.

Lieuallen Bros., of Moscow, Idaho,
Are paying attention to Midway, with
the view of starting in liusiness here.
Mr, Hardy is putting up a new hotel
at Boundary Falls. The sije of the
huilding will be 35x40 feet and will be
two storeys.
The laying out of Boundary Falls
into townsite blocks commenced on
the 18th, Mr. J. Coryell being the surveyor.
Mr. Moi'timer-Liunb is busily engaged setting out a Une orchard on his
land recently purchased, adjoining the
townsite here.
Mr. Brown, of Sacramento, Cali-
'forniu, arrived at Boundary Falls last
Monday, He will prospect up the
creek this summer with his nephew,
Mr, J. P. Harlan.
Mr. J. Stevens came over from Fuir*
view on Friday, and proceeded to
"White's camp, at which point he owns
valuable mining interests. He will be
the guest of Mr. White for a few days.
All that tract of land known aa
Township 89, Osoyoos division of Yale,
has heen created a school district, This removes the only objection
to the building of a schoolhouse at
Midway, so the erection of the same
may be expected at once.
Mr. Boss was bitten—though not
badly—at Boundary Falls last Tuesday
while endeavoring to sepaiate two
fighting dogs. We can quite believe
that Mr. Boss does not consider that
peacemakers are blessed. Mr, Rendell
and Mr. Coryell acted as the physicians
in Dr. Jakes' absence.
Last Saturday night a slight earthquake shock was felt in the neighborhood. In case intending visitors to
Midway this summer should be alarmed
by this report we are willing to guarantee ihnt this is nut n volcanic locality, although our mountains shew an
inclination U, be in eruption for some
time tu come.
Several townsmen are working at
the cribbing of the bridge spanning
Boundary creek, to preveu til possibility
of its li(*in(,- swept awiiy al high water.
The Messrs, Inghriiiu are hauling rock
to rip-nip Hie piers, which were partially misplaced by lust spring's flood,
This Is a matter that should lime received Government attention.
Litnihley Bros, intend this spring
making au addition to their orchard at
their ranch on Okanagnn lake. The
lives lo beset out will include principally the full and winter varieties of
apples. They eipect to have ahout 75
peach trees in full hearing this summer. If the crop should prove a good
one, not only will the local market be
supplied with Ihe most, luscious fruit
imi.giueii.hle, but a deserving profit will
accrue to the vendors.
Mr. Sinister and partner, of Midway,
had a narrow .escape Inst week while
camping out on Lind creek iu quest of
shingle wood. For the sake of convenience they moved their tent up
the creek one evening, ind in the
course of the following day had occasion to pass their old camp, To their
-surprise a huge tree lay across thu exact spot where their tent had been
pitched the daybefore, laid low by the
night's windstorm.
It will be well for parties desirous of
taking advantage of the new provision
in the amendment Io the land act, to
remember that all applications for the
purchase of land (to the amount of 320
acres which the provision permits) providing it adjoins their own pre-emption, should not only be made to the
Government Agent, but at the same
time advertised in the local paper, so
that other parties may become cognisant with the fact of such application, Advertising, when required by
law, is necessary as a safeguard to public interests.
On Thursday last the Rev. Mr. Hall,
formerly a student of Knox College,
Toronto, and who has been appointed
to the Presbyterian Mission here, paid
his initiatory visit to tho neighborhood. He comes direct from the
east, and is therefore an entire stranger
to British Columbia and her people.
The new field in which the reverend gentleman will labor will include
within it boundaries Camp McKinney,
Rock Creek, Midway and Boundary
Falls. Midway is selected as the centre of the district, and the point at
which Mi'. Hall will reside. Up to the
present time the Rev. Mr. Paton, of
Grand Prairie, has paid Midway and
Boundary Falls a visit every other
Sabliath, bul owing to the enormous
size of the district no attention could
he paid to Rock Creek and Camp McKinney. Although the community is
not blessed with a superabundance of
Wealth, at the snme time we feel cer

Sir. L W. Shiitford, of Fairview,
arrived in-Slid way on Monday last,
He came to take a look around the
country, and we trust he returned
home favorably impressed with the
importance of our mining resources.
Mr. Win. Roy, of Boundary Falls,
became a British subject on April 15.
Having been so long and favorably
known amongst us, we heartily extend
the right hand of welcome, under our
flag, to Mr, Roy, at the same lime feeling assured he will always be a right
Roy-nl subject.
Judge Spinks, Gold Commissioner
Lamlily and Mr. W. G. McMynn arrived at Midway on Monday morning.
The Judge was delayed at Vernon by
the Donald vs. Riley case, which was
brought up before him, and did not, as
was repoi-ted last week, miss the boat.
The postponement of the County
Court hure from tho 13th to 15th had a
very striking effect. As will be noticed, all, except oue case, were either
withdrawn or settled out of court, and
this may he attributed to the fact that
hope deferred maketh the hent-t grow
weary or the quality of Thistle
blend dispensed at McAuley's bar of
juicetice had such an effect upon the
feelings of strife among the plaintiffs
and many witnesses assembled, that
to carry war into the enemy's camp
was next to an impossibility. The
Thistle blend had a slightly different-
effect on some, who may now be
thankful that our skookum house was
not quite completed at the time.

Mr. C. de B. Green went up to the
Providence iu tho camp of the same
inline on Thursday, to make a survey of the claim prior to Mr. Walters
Jr., Ihe owner, making application for
a Crown Grant.
The Enterprise mineral claim in Copper Camp litis been surveyed by our
local surveyor Mr. Coryell. The owners, Mr.'J. E, Boss and Mr. Scott
McRae, intend to apply for a Crown
Grant on this claim,
Mr, Corbett is cutting logs preparatory to putting up a cabin 14x10 on his
Lake mining claim, an extension of
the Last Chance, It is evident from
the amount of surface work lately
done that this claim will prove to he of
great value,
A few days since Mr. Lefevre returned from his trip to Spokane, and
reports whilst there having secured by
cash purchase the one-half interest
formerly held hy Mr. John East in the
Sunset claim, Dendwood camp. This
is an enormous body of copper ore,
which development work may prove
to be very valuable. It adjoins the
largest claim in the camp, the Mother
Lode.
Mr. W. T. Smith has ordered a horse
whim from Denver, Col., which on
arrival will be used at tbe Emma
claim, Summit camp. This will take
the place of tho old time windless,
rendered useless by Ihe depth of the
shaft, These appliances are sure indications that our mines are attaining
depth. Several other claims should
furnish themselves with one of these
whims, as they save an incalculable
amount of time and furnish a more
satisfactory mode of hoisting.
Work has begun in earnest on the
Last Chance. The work of fitting up
lodgements and a cookhouse is completed, and for the past four or five
days there have been two shifts steadily at work. Five feet have been added to the depth of the shaft which is

CHRONIC CHILLINESS.
The Remedy Siiirffe-tt«U Ii Outdoor Exer-
clmiHt All Semoiin.
How some people suffer in winter! They
are constantly having chills; a feeling of
oold water trickling down tint back or
some local Hta^iiatjoii of blood, with alter-
ed nervous sensations, ll experienced; ths
hands, feot, nose or ears ure especially
likely to give inconvenience. Such indi.
Tidualii can nol get warm even in bed,
ami, as a consequence, often Miilfer from
Insomnia, for sleeplessness is often caused
by cold feet. Many such conditions arise
from the fedr of taking outdoor exercise,
because the weather is too cold. Hence
the circulation is not kopt going, and the
blood, vitiated by tho close, impure air
of the house, has no chance offered it of
being allowed to purify itself. Tho foulest river or stream of water is rendered
pure by exposure to the air as it comes
.-along, and after a run of a few miles lie-
comes fit for consumption. Why, then,
will delicate people deny tho stream of life
an opportunity to purify itselfasitcourses
through their veins? Here is the secret of
how to keep warm in winter—outdoor exercise in pure air,
Many individuals mistake the feeling of
cold for "ejitarrh." But feeling cold and
"taking a cold" are different things. A
shiver from exposure to cold—indeed, a
half-frozen condition—Isnot in itself likely
to end in a so-called "cold," so long as the
exposure has been in the open air; but we
holdthathy breathing the impure air of
badly ventilated rooms a chill may be very
easily contracted that will end iu a "cold."
In cold weather we distinctly recommend
the ordinarily healthy man or woman to
try the effect ofoutdoorexerci.se,especially
when tho feeling is strong that it Is too
cold to go out of doors, Exercise under
such circumstances will usually act as a
tonic to the whole frame and brace up the
nervous system, tho special function of
which is to regulate tho heat of the body.
The skin should be freely exposed to the
air Iwfore dressing in the morning, and
after the morning washing, or cold, tepid
bath, rub the body into a glow with a
coarse towel, and you will be very nearly
cold and water proof, — Philadelphia

A footpath is tlie most human thing in

Government Ofllni,
Usojoes, .ith January, its*,1-}. id Tin- Statist, referring to the enormous speculation that hns been indulged in r ntly in Smith African
mining shares, says:
Business in 'his market continues on
tin- same enormous scale, hut the
heavy buying is running niny on much
inure speculative lines. Even the Con-
i mental purchasers, who have, hitherto
acted with extreme caution, and have
linught chiefly of the heft properties,
are now buying largely into second
and third rate companies, whose properties are more, i,r less in (he development stage, Hl)d, perhaps not likely to
lie actually making ret urns for some
years, ll is no doubt in this class of
shares that the greatest profits will be
mildo; Ijiit at the same time buyers
should ho careful to see thai the capitals are moderate, that there is ample
;-asli for working, and, above all, that
the nianageiiienl is efficient and honest. Taking the great rise all round,
and the constant and steady creation
nf new companies, and the almost
dally introduction of new blocks pf
shaies frum Smith Africa, It is really
astonishing how nil Ihe shares nre absorbed. This is due, no doubt, to the
greater confidence felt by tho public in
mining shares as an jnVeslineiit, and I
nisi) hi Il)i* great |]li,lhiim of cash, for
1111>- i r, v,,.-, 111 j' -' 11 "!' which lliere is no
oilier market so progressive -offering
such possibilities
The pt-lcn of iii.-tny shares, however,
now so high that any Improvement
cost of mining per ton of first-class ore
was $14.52; including both lirst and
second-class on-, the mining cost was
$'12.08 per ion. The concentrator
statement shows that 10,083 tons in all
were treated, of which 251 tons were
second-class ore from the mines and
0,120 tons second-class from the tailings
(lain. The ratio of concentration was
11 to 1, and 872 tons concentrates were
produced. The cost of working was 72
cents nf crude ore treated, or $8.81 per
ton of concentrates produced. The
average assay of the crude ore showed
IJ percent lead and HI ounces silver
per Ion. The as;say value of the roll;
centrales was 23 per cent lead and 42
ounces silver per ton The smelter
statement for the year is as follows:
Ore treated, 8,261 net tons; Muxes used,
1,1511 tons iron ore, 53(1 tons lime rock,
and 2,558 tons slag ■ ftiel used, 148,140
bushels charcoal and2,514,200 lbs. coke i
cost of fuel, $2.88 per Ion of charge
mixture, uu :§4.28 per ton of ore. The
average assays showed 23,86 per cent
lead, 21.57 per cent silica, and 75.28
ounces silver per ton. The total production was 313.31 ounces gold, 010,800
ounces silver, 302,8117 pounds copper,
and 2,011,012 pounds of lead bullion.
The average proportion of charge was
117.5 per cent ore and 32.5 per cent flux.
The average fuel used was 51 per cent
coke and 4(1 per cent charcoal) dajly
average of fuel consumed, 0.31 Ions.
Tile iron ore used for Mux was delivered at the smelter for $(! a tun the char-
a bushel. Coke cost
from $13.50 to $13.80 per ton at the
railway, four miles from the smeller.
The financial statement is as follows:
Total cash income, $1-10,700; total expenses, $200,530;"net profit for Ihe
year, $15(1,173; dividends paid, $120,000'-
ijalance carried over, $30,173. Tlie
company is capitalized at $1,500,000,
and has paid 2,055,000 in dividends, the
last one being 50 cents a share ($15,000)
in March. The mines have been
worked since 1870.
to lie derived from the further increase \ ™l* it n cent
of milling power, tee,, is already well
discounted iu present quotations, It
slioiild be easy for any one to turn to
our mining column, and, multiplying
the capital by the price, and taking
thqaverage return of profits for the
{all three months, calculate the yield
per cent. It would be quite surprising
In many people to sou what low rettu.iis
the actual net earnings give, Werp-p
therefore inclined to think that where
fair profits have been made it would be
wise, perhaps, lo realise some of tlietn.
Speaking generally, tliqre are indications thai the run is likely to be nn
shares of companies working in the
chartered   territory,    Many  of  the
besl-ktuivi-i] companies, to which ,ve i '""'""K property p.-qvkliii
have from time lo time referred, are
developing llieir various properties,
with, so far, excellent results. Steps
arc now being |aki:n |o form companies to-work to the north of the
Zambesi, and the working capital of
one of these, the Rhodesia Concessions,
has already been oversubscribed privately) in fact, it is thought that
allottees will only receive a very moderate per centage of their applications.
The company holds a large block of

Smelting tu K-iotcimy.
The Nelson  Tribune  lias in its last
Ihe following interesl ing article tending lo prove that smelting can he sue*
eessi,tlly operated in Kootenay:
livery repi-e.'.ciilalive of outside
smellers who has bought ore in Koole-

successful as a liusiness proposition,,
Tbe I'ilol Hay smeller is not dependant ou curloin ores to keep it hi opera-
lion. It has a mine of its own to back
il. The Tribune is in possession of llie
annual report for1891' qf a Montana
mining ami smell ing coiqpt'.lty that is
in no way ill a more favorable position
than Ihe mining and smelling company operating Ihe Hlue liell mine and
the smeller at I'ilol. Hay. The mines

and the smeller is about: four miles

Size of Mines,
lly carefully prepared tables, it is
quite easy lo establish the length of

calculation is to take the length along
the outcrop and multiply it hy the

Mil cubic feet. This divided hy 15

in the ore body it is only necessary to
divide it by the number representing
the amount run through, qi: tq lip rjlti

understood if applied to properties in
countries where the mining laws do
not allow the (ire body to be followed

of calculation it is found that many

years, at the present rate of milling

An Instance of Milling Luck.
R. E, Lemon, of Nelson, is either
lucky or unlucky. Last, year when he
sold his interest in the Josie, a Trail
creek prospect, for $7,000, he thought
he was playing in good luck. Were
he to see the Josie to-day he would
think he played in bad luck. The
whole width of the lower tunnel is in
ore, and {lie -jr-iijaj aj'e, 1151 lyel! (.jellied
i,s those of a plqste.red house. The
ore body is between live ana six feet
wide, the ore is clean and the grade is
higher than the ore from either tjie Le
Koi or War Eagle, The face of the
tunnel is nearly 200 feet from the surface, and experts reckon the Jusin to
be worth $100,000.   Such is mining
luck.
