BEAVER CREEK.
Number of Properties Being Worked on the East Kork,
Much attention is at present heing
devoled to lbe East Pork of Fieaver
creek. Heretofore little work has lieen
done in developing the properties in
that vicinity, but recent assessments
have disclosed ledges of such a promising nature as to cause considerable ac
tivity in the camp.
On the Broken Hill, owned by A.
Piper, H. McKay and Vf. A, Logan,
considerable work has been done, and
a rich lead of galena ore has been encountered, and the owners are so en
couraged by Ihe showing that ihey
have decided to resume work at an
early date.
Tom Curry and partner, who bave
been running a large open oul on ihe
Maple Leaf No. 2, lust week ran Into n
ledge of rich cupper ore. Tbey will
now sink on I he ledge and it is thought
It will widen as depth is attained, and
should such be the case the Maple Leaf
No. 2 will ere long be counted among
the leading properties of that district.
There are also a number of other
properties close to those already mentioned that work will lie cnnimenoedr
upon us soon as the wagon road lo
Beaverton is completed.

sayBt "At three p; m. on Wednesday,

He again reiterated his statement that
tbe wounded were well treated in the
hospitals, Regarding the alleged me
of poisoned bullets, Dr. Ryerson s:iid
be bad seen many of these so called
poisoned bullets, but he staled that
tbey were simply green with verdigris,
which in all probability is burned ofl
in Ihe ritte while the bullet is in transit
through the barrel. He bad heard of
no case where poisoning by a bullet
could fairly he said to have occurred,
He also doubted the charge that explosive bullets bad been used.
It is estimated by those who have
access to general reports that the
grain crop in Manitoba will be more
than 1,000,000 bushels short I his season,
owing Chiefly to the drought that has
prevailed most of Ihe year, just us it
hus iu Minnesota and North Dakota.
The one product thai is saving many
of the Manitoba fanners from ruin is
that fortunately they put in a greater
amount of winter wheat than ever before. This is fur ahead of tho spring
wheal, whieh in the greater pari of the
province is reported as absolutely
worthless, In Alberta and Assinihoia,
the weather, though dry throughout
iho summer, was not so warm and
consequently the yield is lietter. The
farmer has one source of relief, lt is
piedicted Ihut ihe price for the new
crop of wheat will hu the best ever obtained,

Hitting as a Business.
Mining is a legitimate business. It
is not mure speculative than other
lines of business, tl requires skill and
good judgement, and some capital, lo
win success, with ihese success is al*
most a certainty, The man who con-
-Ini.'> a pyritie smelter where the
or.-.- carry an average valu» of less
iii .11 IJ per cent, stilphnr will he very
certain to inaki a fai ure of bis enterprise, The man who builds a large
milling plant on a prospect and then
goe gunning for "i" with which to
keep it in operation Is likely to make a
failure. The man who pul 1 his money
Inasecrel process guaranteed to save
more values than is shown by a lire assay ought to, jiihI always does, lose bi-
ca-.li. Ii, Is said ilnt 08 per cent, of the
men whu embark in business make
failures, ll may be said that every
man fails who attempts to conduct a
husiness which he does not understand.
The greatest successes In the business
world are obtained by those who ure
able In choose lirst-i'ia-s assistants. If
you do not understand the business of
mining and are not able to select a
man who does lo handle your enter
prise, ib n'l invest, in mining. If you
do, you are safer in mining than in
any other business, The grout majority of men who mine wlih intelligence
uud good judgement succeed. The
percentage of those who succeed is
greater than in any olher line of business.
