MINING NOTES
That the Rex mine at Herb lake has
1 enough ore in sight to return a profit
of $3,000,000, is set forth in the report
I of an independent mining engineer.
He states that the vein has been traced
for 2,000 feet, and the outcrop is strong
for 1,800 feet. The vein has an average width of 3 feet, ��nd in two places
it widens to 10 and 20 feet. A shaft
has been sunk along the vein to a depth
of 150 feet, with  a station   at  the  100
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farni:i:'' or ranching, In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, theextentof which is
only beginning to be realized.

Many do with opportunity as children do at the sea
shore; they fill their little hands with sand, then let the
grains fall through one by one, till they are all gone.
Four things come not back; the spoken word, the
sped arrow, the past life, and the neglected opportunity.
Opportunity has hair in front, behind is bald; if seized
by the forelock it may beheld, but if suffered to escape
not even Jupiter himself can catch her again.   Opportunities are the offers of God.   Heaven give? u?< enough
when it gives us opportunity.   Great opportunities are
generally the result of the wise improvement of small
ones.   Wise men make more opportunities than they
find.    If you  think your oppar [unities are not good
enough, you had better impvove them.   Remember you
are responsible for talents, for time, and for opportunities; improve them as one that must give an account.
Make hay while the sun shines.    Gather roses  while
they bloom.
As a general rule, those who have no opportunities
despise small ones; and those who despise small opportunities never get large ones.
Opportunity does not only do great work, but if not
heeded is often most disastrous.
Accident does very little toward the production of
any great result in Ufa. Though sometimes what is
called a "happy hit" may be made by a bold venture, the
old and common highway of steady industry and application is the only safe road to travel.
It is not accident that helps a man in the world,
but purpose and parsistent industry.    These make a
man sharp to discern opportunities, and turn thim to
account.   To the feeble, the sluggish and purposeless,!
tha happiest opportunities avail  nothing���they   pass
them by, seeing no meaning in them.
Stewart offers opportunities.    The New Year is
with us���1921 offers opportunities to us all.
