The people of Ferguson were startled
Monday evening, Aug. llth, by a report that was brought to town by John
A. Atkinson, ol Trout Lake, to the
effect that the rema'us uf a man had
been found in a tent quite close to ll.e
cabins at Eight Mile and that the remains had buen lying there for several
years.   The coroner, Dr, W. E. New-
oonibe, had a jury of sU impaneled the
same evening and at 7 the neat morning lhe coroner and jury, accompanied
by J.  Snell, a provincial constable,
started on their ride to Eight Mile to
view the remains and huld an Inquest.
In the present* of the jury, the Conner and the police officer made a complete examination of the  remains ol

a mineral glass and a new shaving kit.
An axe was found under the pillow, as
were also the man's  boots, and his
pocket knife was found near tbe right

A party consisting of M. B Webber
and Mrs. W��bb:r, W. J. Landon and
Mrs. Landon, of Winona, Minnesota,
and . Mrs. Cowdry and Miss Louisa
Cowdry, of Milwaukee, came Into Fer-
.uson on Friday last to visit tbe camp
ind to inspect and complete arrangements for resuming development on
the Black Warrior mining property of
which Messrs. Webber and Land* n
represent, the Eastern syndicate that
holds a bond on a five-eights interest.
The whnle party paid a visit to the
Nottie L mine on Saturday.
The following mornin*- Messrs. Web-
ber, Landon and S. Shannon, tbe local
mannger, made a trip to the Black
Warrior and returned Monday evening after a pretty hard trip. A big
force of men are being sent up at onee
to make a new trail fr nn the mine '���
the ruminlt of the divide and as soon as
enough ore is In sight to warrant, an
aerial train will be put In.
Mr. Webber, manager for tho syndicate, brought down samples of ore from
lhe vein which were assayed with tht
following result: Silver 2141 ounces,
copper 18 per cent. This shows the ore
to be remarkably high grade and with
silver selling at 53 cents the value fur
this metal alone would be 11,137 (7 and
the cupper and gold values would
bring the gross value up much higher.
The surface showings are excellent-
Men were at work nn the claim last
year until Christmas but owing to
supplies running out and not able te
get fre.h in on account of snow, development had to be discontinued.
Considerable work has been done on
the property, and a strong force of men
are bring sent up it-day to rusk Ike
work forward. Mr, Alec. Browa will
-uperintend these operations. Tht

management uf these properties In
order to be freo to devote himself to
gold mining.
"The members of our syndicate have
great faith ln tbo Lardeau. Indeed
they have good reason tn, at all of

thorn have achieved nice little fortuatt.
We expect to do even better with our

Cau��log widespread public at.ti.ntli
The followers of mining aro obtaining
fortunes oy carefully investing in mining stocks, and men io commercial
lines of business are realising this fact
and profiting thereby as at no other
time in past history.
Kvery business has in it an understood element of hazard, and, with the
same care observed In tbe mining ventures at would be expected to be observed in mercantile pursuits, the risk
will be found to be much lets than Is
generally supposed, and no greater
than in tbe average of mercantile callings,
More than almost any other line,
mining has been reduced to an exact
business, almost an exact science. Improved machinery, scientific knowledge and business management places,

The following advice from the Daily
Mining Redid of Colorado Springs, it
not only applicable to mining, hut to
all kindred luisine**, The competition
in mining machinery business Is keen
and the American houses that make
the most noise and display their wares
in bold type before tbe mining puldle
in mliiln-r j nirnuin are the ones tt-ut
are doing the business. British and
German maoulauiurers are beginning
to realize thai fact. Tins Is an ad\er*
Using age und if u mining cunp it, es
not use printer's Ink in making the
world uequuiiileii with the richness of
tbeir ores It will always remain in an
nndereloped state although tl ore are
millions of dollars worth of preciout
metal beneath the surface.
"Make a noise!" suys the Record.
"This Is the keynote to success of
any mining eamp. The hest prospect
is vuluele-s If there Is no money for development. Capital bas to ho sought.
It requite* getting. It needs a whole
lot of muse to attract it. The camps
that are making tha most nofte are at
