What a Horrible Climate.
The   recent   comparatively   mild
weather which has prevailed in Great
Britain   lias been interrupted hy a
thorough blizzard in many parts of the
country, especially in the north, where
the snow drifts have lieen several feet
deep.  Three men perished in tlie snow
in the Highlands, a train was blown
off the rails near Tralee, Ireland, nuni
lull's of fishing boats have been lost,
many fishermen have perished and the
Irish innil boats and cross channel mail
services wen* Interrupted or sori-tuslji
delayed.   Trains have been snowed up
at several places, and generally the
snow storm is considered to have been
the worst for many vears.

Takes the $20,000,000.
Spain bus accepted the Utiili'd State's
offer of "120,000,000, and at a joint; s
sion of the pence commissions 011
Nov, 28lh, consented, without enndi
lion, lo relinquish Ouba and to cede
Puerto Reeo, Guam and the Philippine
islands.
The document presenting this ac
ceptunce contained only 300 words. It
opened wilh a reference lo the linal
terms of lhe United Slates, and said
Hint lhe Spanish commissioners, afler
hnving laken cognizance of the terms
proposed by the Americans, replied
Ihal; Iheir government had tried In
give as equitable an answer as possible
but lhey were noi prepared to commit
their government to tlie acceptance of
Ihe principles embodied in the argument. Spain rejects these principles,
the note continues, "as she always has
rejected llieni," basing her attitude upnu the just ice nf her cause. The note
then suys she still adheres to these
principles "which she has heretofore
invariably formulated."

Tlie Plain Lesson of Pure Plour.
ilvS. J. .Mii.i.KU, 51.D,
Thu American Jinn uul of health, a
puliiical ion of 27 years standing and
one of the highest am horit ies on mat-
lui'tt of Baniialioii aud hygiene in the
United Stales, gives lhe following
splendid testimonial to tlie products of
the Okiinagan Flour .Mill Company, of
Armstrong. Editorially Lhe Journal
suys:
Sermons need not be preached when
it comes to warning the public against
inferior grades of Hour. The thoughtful and truly conscientiouscatirer who
selecis fisssd products for the family ou
the one Inviohihle principle I Iinl pin ity
alone can possibly win her favor, will
Indignantly reject llie spurious brands
which lhe hygienic press rollectlvely
condemns, and which are lhe must
deadly agents of disease. The community has no more insidious foe than
impure or low grade ft'iur, For on
account of the very linlli lhat we cannot sit down nt; the family bnarii without ingesting llour in a greater or less
quantity, the corresponding, influence
upon nur hesslih cannot be overestimated. It will be eilher an inlltienco
fur evil or all influence for good. Nuth-
ittg whicli enters the system, in no
iiii-itlf'- bow small a quantity, but has
its power of nlfeeting lhe general result, and when iln- principal constituents of our dally food lack Ihe <|un!iiy
Lhey should possess, tiie magnitude of
lhe consequence goes without saying.
We Infallibly suffer,
To obviate all such disastrous consequences, and I he sufferings they thus
entail, Lhe American Journal of Health
watches without inlermissiun the successive Introductions of the market
brands of lisiiir. And it also urges
upon the consumer lhe use of those
whose established excellence is fiuiii-
cieni safcguaiil againsl the unverified
claims"f other brands. Tliere is another consideration which isblstins iis
due weight wilh us 1 lhe reliability of
the manufacturers, We have found
each condition fulfilled Lo our satisfaction In "0. K." Flour offered l.y lhe
Okanagan Flour Mill Company of
Armstrong, B. C, Canada, This isa
truly pure product, marketed l.y a firm
which enjoys lhe most enviable reputation fur the production of only first
class goods. The resources of our analysis weii' hroiighl. into requsltion for
the Lhoiougli testing of this fluur. And
an exhiliit mn was (hereby made which
^inclusively established the great
nni 1 ii ive worth which is claimed for It
because of iLs richness in gluten: its
suitability for pi rsons nf weak digestive lagans on ing tu its possessing no

Tho new mining companies and Iheir

of conversation in Fairview nnw. I
believe that a considerable amount of

sold and as the company's properly
seems *.o be a really gond nne there is nn
guod reason why ilia whole of Ilm

DESCRIPTION.
Ou lhe "I). A" is it vein alinnt'20
inches wideipWi't'b a pay-streak of 4 to
12 inches; from luis 8,(«i3 lbs. of ore
was shipped to the smelter, giving
$103.bj gold per Ion, silver 717-10 ozs.,
and 2 per cent. lead. A tunnel is being
driven on this vein from which ore is
being taken. On the same property is
a larger vein (quarts) currying galena
and pyrites,
The "G. A. R." has a 30-foot shaft
sunk on a 2-fool vein, lieayily mineralized wjth an intimate mixture of iron
and copper pyrites, galena, blende and
silverglanee. Tliefhicstpieiiesofwii'esil*
verfiuinil oiiBoimdaryCreek were taken
frnni lllis shaft. Avetago assays from
different places across the vein gave
$8.00 guld, 50 o/a. silvers also $8.(10
gold and 150 ozs, silver and one, the
latest return—$15,05 gold and 1I1U 1-5
ozs. silver per ton,
On the "Big Ledge" Is a 10 font
quartz vein, mineralized with lion
pyrites. This vein has been opened
up by cross-cuts on the surface f<-r5(HJ
feet. A narrower vein has been
opened op, being one font wide, carrying considerahle copper pyrites, and
runs into the main ledge as a spur, on
which a tunnel of 10 feet has been
driven. Average assays gave $33 gold
and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $l'l.!figoId
17J "zss. silver, 2 pel cent, copper
The "S. F." lies Letweed Ihe ti. A. ti.
and D. A„ in the direction ot tbe strike
on tins G. A. R. vein. This location lias
een made on a vein of pyrrholile,
Tbe "O. B." has two distinct veins:
one 25>feetjjwide which, fnnn its strike
and general characl er would seem lo
be the same vein as that on lhe Big
Ledge, although sufficient has not
been 'done to make litis conclusive.
The ^second vein has at. present a
width of nearly three feet. Assays
have shown values in gold from $4.00
to $170.53, while a conservative sampl-
ing^hy Mr. 8. 8. Fowler, M. E. gaye
$20,00 infold,
0n'the"8. H. B," are'two converg-
iiig'veius of cupper and iron pyrites,
on'whlch work is now being done. An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
1(1} ozs.,.''cupper 11.00 per cent., or
$111.-11 for all values.
The '• Fred D." was located in De
ceinliei'.i 181)5, more as ground for a
basis for mining operations for the
Other i talllia than lor lis* present value,
although there is little doubt lhat the
large vein on the O. B. runs through
it. There is a small vein of galena on
Ihis claim.
The "I. A. 0." lias a large iron-
capping running lhrough it from the
Anaconda, nt a depth of a few feel.
The ore carries a considerable percent
age of of copper and $10,in gold.
