While: W. T. Shatford & Co. are noted for the quality and
price of the goods sold by them. PROSPECTORS and
MINERS operating in the Similkameen and surrounding
mining carps, would do well to outfit at one of our stores,
where everything is kept that i.s needed in the mining business.
, Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particular!) refers to prospectors going
into the district above referred to.

Sir Charles said further that he bad
