aud 240 wounded. Ladysuiith has been
cut off fiom southern communication
but the war office is not alarmed. The
magnitude of Monday's fighting around
Ladysmitb is apparent when it is known
three actions were raging simultaneously, The men of the Powerful have
planted four more big guns for (be defense. Gen, Jan Kock, second In command of Transvaal forces, died from his
wounds on Monday. Mafeking and
Kimberley are both being invested by
Boers, 6000 being around tbe latter
place. Boers are said to be sick of fighting, owing to heavy losses.

London, Nov. 3—Latest news indicate
the Boers were mounting heavy guns
around Ladysmitb on Monday, preparing
for a further bombardment, Tbe naval
brigade of the British have also mounted
other big guns. The inhabitants were
leaviug the town that day, hut communication with Ladysmitb has since
been interrupted. The intention if the
Boers is to isolate the place, and march
dowu to capture Durban preventing the
landing of British troops at that point.
An army order has been Issued to mobilize
35 battalions of troops by November 30.
The Dominion Government have made
an offer of> second regiment to the Imperial Government for service iu Soulh

Accounts that'eontinue to arrive regarding fighting at Farqtiahr's farm confirm

New York, November '3 --Notwithstanding lhe rain, every scat hi the Coney
Island Sporting Clubhouse/vaa occupied
to night nt half yast 9 o'clock. Among
tbe notables present were Kid McCoy,
Bob FHzsimmom, and Jim Corbett, who
announced lhat they world challenge
the winner. Tiie betting favored
Jeffries 100 to 70;. but the backers of
Sharkey, wiiile they bad plenty of money
apparently were holding off for greater
otitis, The crowd wus about equally divided in their sympathies. Jeffries entered the ring at 10 o'clock au I Sharkey
two minutes later. When the former
stripped it was seen lhat his body was
covered with red blotches. At 10.15 the
men advanced and received instructions
from referee George Siler. Jeffries announced his weight at 210 pounds, and
Sharkey said he weighed 185. Tom
O'Rourke put on Sharkey's gloves, aud
Tommy Ryan adjusted Jeffries' mitts.
Tbe fight lasted for 25 rounds, and
neither man received a knock out blow,
but Jeffries was given the decisicn on
points. ,It was the greatest fistic battle
ever known in a prize ring. Sharkey
was aggressive from the start, while
Jeffries was on tbe defensive up to thc
17th round. Everything indicated that
Sharkey would be tbe winner, but after
thnt Jeffries seemed to grow fresher,
while his antagonist grew weaker, and it
is 'generally considered that Jeffries
would have knocked bis man out in one
or two more rounds. It was a close contest, and the hardest fight either man
ever went against,

These properties are only shout five
miles from tbe town and extensive work
there will be a direct and lastiug benefit
to Ihe coumminty. Competent judges,
who have watched the development uf
tbe ledge in the shaft 011 the Excess,
are confident real, proper development
will result in a permanent mine, which
will contribute a large qunutlty of copper
ore to the worlds supply.
The quality of the ore improved
steaedily from the surface down to the
bottom of Ihe shaft, which uow shows n
ledge of over eight feet lu width, with
several feet oi ore, Essaying ten per cent
oe copper.
Tbe gold and silver values are not as
yet constant, but some very high assayi
have been received. The ore will eventually be a high grade of copper with
probably sufficient gold and silver values
to very'appreclabty increase the receipts
The bunging woll is perfect and constant for the 60 odd feet so far sunk, and
indicates a permanent vein. Tlie situation oHfre mine, almost ou the rail*ay-
makes the transportation problem nn
easy one, and iu the early stages ot development by the company, it will be a
great nilvantoge lo be able to make

The Kootenay & Algoma.
The Kootenay St Algoma Gold Mining
company have an option on the Pedro
mineral claim, and are having examinations made by competent and reliable
eng:neers. The Pedro is only half a
mile fiom the North Star railway, near
Marysville, and is said to he a remarkably
fine prospect. It is proposed to make
use of a diamond drill, and Mr. A. ti
Watts made a trip to tbe ground a few
days ago to estimate tbe cost per foot.
Boring with the diamond drill is ope of
the latest methods of prospecting mineral claims, and although not satisfactory
in all cases, there are many places where
more definite information can be obtained for each dollar expended than could
be gained for each ten dollars in the
ordinary mining way.
Mr. Watts has spent the season boring
on many different propetlies in the
Lardeau country, and bis experience
enables him to closely estimate cost in
the different rock formations of the

Moj ie Leader : Il is reported on good

Cronin, Campbell and others. Mr
Drewry will return from Toronto about
November 10. If the information received is authentic, it seems that ibe

J. C. Hooker, lhe well known pioneer
of the country round lhe headwaters of
the St. Mary's River, has come back to
town Vtilh some remarkably fine specimens ot copper and galena ore. Mr.
Hooker climbed over tbe Divide between

the following summer located claims on
some of the main ledges of that ^.strict

such hardy pioneers that the development ol the mineral wealth of tbis

It does not go far enough, it bus only

Think of it ' A tuwn with over too

What is tbe matter ?
Is it political revenge, or te it gross

Cruubrook la growing, The number Ol
children is increasing each week, and
lhe situation is becoming more serums,
and yet, it is impossible to get relief.
What excuse can tbe educational department of this province offer for such
gross neglect in providing educational
fiicilites for thecliildreii of Cranbrook )
What explanation can they i;ive lo the
tax payers and others ofthtscommnnlty?
There is no more important feature in
lhe government tban the education uf
the children. It is nothing less thnn a
crime to prevent parents giving to their
children the educational advantages that
the importance of tbe town nud the
value ol taxes paid warrant.
The Herald would like to know who

The miue owners of West Kootenay
over-reached themselves when they imported a lot of Italians from the United
States to work iu the mines. British
Columbia baa no need of Italians to
work In her mines. The merchant, the
manufacturer, ihe artisan, the lahorei,
the capitalist, all have reason to oppose
such a move. The future of British
Columbia depends upon her masses, If
all labor is lo come dowu lo the basis of
Chinese and Italian wages, the days of
prosperity iu British Columbia will soon
be over. Good wages means good times
nnd more rapid development of every
resource of the country. Tbe money
earned by the Italian and Chinaman is
sent away. It is never in vested in
homes and home Improvements. Not a
dollar of It is spent iu public spirited en
terprise. They are a class that absorl
but never give up. Tbe bare necessities
of life keeps them, and very little of
their money circulates in the legitimate
channels of trade. Une white man

taking his picture
A short lime ago Jt occurred to the
manager of a moving picture machine
company thnt nn Indian dance would bit
a splendid subject for a biograph picture. Accordingly a man with the necessary apparatus wus sent out to New
Mexico to photograph a Pueblo dunce.
Afler a week of negotiations the Pueblos agreed to go through a dnnce fm* the
benefit of the photographer in consideration nf the sum of $10, to be paid in advance. Indinus do not eutortnhi a very
high opinion of the commercial integrity
of the white man. They tako no chances,
The money was paid, the machine adjusted, and tho dunce began, hut the Instant the oporntor began turning tho
crank of his machine the clutter of the
apparatus caused a wild panic among the
daucors. Every one lied in mortal terror
to safo refuges behind rocks nnd houses,
leaving the photographer transfixed with
astonishment, lie tried to explain that
the machine though noisy, wns perfectly
harmless, he entreated the dancers to return, he offered bribes, but to uo purpose.

Gure of Cancer.
Some twelve yean
ago Mra, Elizabeth
Gilhula, wife of tha
postmaster of Buxton, Ont., was taken
ill with an obscure
stomach trouble
which her physicians pronounced
cancer of the stomach and informed
her thnt her lease ol
lite would be short,
uas. oilhula. 0n lhe Adv-lct oi
friends she commenced taking Burdock
Blood Hilton. Tho result! that followed
were little short of marvellous. Her
strength and vigor relumed and ia a short
time hhe was completely cured. Mrs,
Gilhula ia to-day in the full enjoyment of
good health, and In ail these years there haa
not been the slightest return of tbe trouble.
Here is the letter Mrs. Gilhula wrote at
the time of her cure:
" About four yeara ago I waa taken sick
with stomach trouble and consulted several
of the leading physicians here, all of whom
pronounced the disease to be cancer ofthe
stomach of an incurable nature, and told
me that It waa hardly to be expected tbat
I could live long. Afterward the two doctors
who were attending me gave me up to die,
'■ By the advice of some of my friends,
who knew of the virtues of Burdock Blood
Bitters, I was induced to try it, and I am
now happy to say that after using part of
lhe first bottle I felt so much better I was
able lo get up. I nm thankful to state that
I am completely cured of the disease by the
use of B.B.B., although It had baffled the
doctors for a long time, I am firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved
my life."
Here it the letter received from her a short
time ago:
" I am ntlll In good health, t thank
Burdock Blood Bitter* for saving my life
twelve years ngo, and highly recommend
it to other miflereri from stomach troubles
of any kind.'1        Elizabeth Gilhula,
