Quality and Price.
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 cairps, would do well to outfit at one of our stores,
where everything is kept that is needed in the mining business.
Instead of buying outside, buy right at home, and so save
money, and this more particularly refers to prospectors going
into the district above referred to.

j particularly in n-ck-cutting and trestle-

: details of these given below. The
' rail distance from the storting point
' on the Columbia Hiver t" Midway is
heavy.   The
Longest Bridge and Trestle
is tbe one approaching and crossing
the Kettle River at (irand Forks; the
highest bridge is that over Porcupine
Creek, lietween Summit and the tig
tunnel, this being li«.» feet high ; *nit
the bridge requiring in its building t: e
k'reatest ai.ioutit of both laUir and

Riveras Cascade is approached from
the east. This last bridge is 1,JU) feet
long and 90 feet alum- river level, and
in its construction some I..VWM) feet
(board measure! of lumber were used.
There are very many small bridges
and trestles, most nt them being along
Arrow Lake, with a fair but smaller
piat|4jrtion along the Christina Like
descent to Cascade. West of Cascade
there is comparatively little bridge
work, tbe trestle bridge over Bouudary Creek tiear Greenwood being next
in size in this section to that at Grand

"Telediagraph."
Telediiigrnph is the name given to
the apparatus invented l>y E, A, Hiim-
mell of St. Paul. ,Minn„ for the. telegraphing of pictures.   Thc picture to
to he sent is Hist drawn on tinfoil with
a certain kind of ink which will not
easily lilur hy  rubbing,     Thc foil   is
then wrapped around a cylinder in the
sending machine, similar to the wax
cylinder of a phonograph.   At the receiving end is asiinilar device arranged
to work synchronously with the sending apparatus ; but instead of tinfoil, a
sheet of carbon or manifold paper is
placed between two blank sheets of
paper.   In the sender a needle or platinum point is made to trace its way
over the surface of  the  tinfoil,  automatically moving down tlie cylinder
a certain distance on the completion
of each revolution.    As   this  needle
GOtnea in contact with the ink lines it
is thereby raised from the metallic surface and the circut is broken.   At thc
receiving end a corresponding needle
reproduces the pulsations of the needle
in   the   transmitter,   nnd,   pressing
against the sheet in contact with the
carlsm paper, traces ti|M>n  it an  impression of the desired picture.

Tho statement of this institution for
the half year ending October HI Ims
been issued and notwithstanding tbe
reduced rales of interest for money,
which have prevailed of late years,
making it a difficult task to obtain the
sauic returns us formerly, the bank has
earned ita standard rate of dividend,
live percent for the six months, and
lias been enabled to make an addition
tt, the already large amount ut the
credit of Prolit and Loss. The net
profits for the six months were$058,101,
ami they exceeded those for the cures
ponding period of las' year by $29,028,
Afl'tr payment of a dividend of live
percent, for the period there remained
$58,101, which with tbe balance of
Profit and Loss account on April ltd
lasl brought up the balance at the end
of (litober to the large sum of $1,1(10,-
H5I. This is an increase of $1W.82B,
The balance of Profit ami Loss carried
forward for the new half year is eipial
lo IKIjf per cent of the total dividend at
the rate often per cent, for the current
year. The next half-yearly dividend
is, therefore, not only in band, but
there is in addition thereto the sum of
$500,1154 of unappropriated profits.

The conin.ittee's report to that effect

Inforinatioii, information-- that is
what everybody wants in Ihe mining
world. The greenest and most timid
investor and speculator wants it and so
does the old-time mining operator who,
quite possibly, bas made bis tens or
bis hundreds of thousands out, nf th,.
mining business. Good, reliable Information is a very useful thing to be in
possession of, nnd, like many a coveted
article, is mighty hard to secure.—
