traced from two hundred und fifty to
three hundred feet aud in places it is
three feet in width. About two hundred feet lower down the mountain they
have run in a tunnel for 'hret hundred
feet and crosscut the vein for twenty
feet. Besides the splendid surface showing they have in the tunnel three or four
feet of high grade ore. A small number
of men are employed and everyday the
claim looks better. If auy one doubts
the prosperity of Moyie, just pay tbe
town a visit and judge for yourself.
SAW  Mll.t,  FOR  MOYIK-
It is now definitely settled that a new
sawmill is lo be located at Moyie. This
week Grant & Sheady, members of the
milting company, are sending forces of

cut timber, which will be in readiness
for the mill when it opens up. The
proposed mill will cost iu the neighborhood of $7,000 and have a capacity of
35,000 feet per day. They will put in a
planer, joiner and lather, fitted with
the latest machinery and provided wilh
a large engine so that all of them may
be run at the same lime. Tbe exact site
bas not yet been decided upon, but it

Prom the returns of the mineral production of the Province of Itritsh Columbia for tlie year 1900, submitted to
tbe local legislature by the provincial
minister of mines ou March 5th, It is
gathered that tbere was during tbe year
au increase iu the value ot tbe output of
the lode mines of the proviuce of $2 310-
428 and a decrease iu tbat of placer gold
of $-66,176, leaving a net increase in
metallic minerals for the year of $,244,*
252. There was also an increase of $i.-
013,238 in the value of coal and coke.
No returns are yet available of the value
of other non metallic minerals so these
can noi now be taken into account. The
foregoing figures, though, exhibit practically last year's net Increase, which
was $4,257,490. as shown iu detail in tbe

The number of tons of metallic ore

Two Dividend Payers.
West Kootenay papers bave been publishing a list of dividend paying mines
during the past two or three weeks, and
tbey have taken in properties tbat have
paid as low as $10,000 the past year.
Yet, none ot the lists show either tbe
St. Kugene or North Star. The St.
Eugene has heen a steady dividend payer for many mouths, and the North Star
is looked upon today as one of the leading lead ore mines on the American continent. In less time than a year past, it
bas paid about $160,000 in dividends, besides adding largely to its reserve fund.
As a dividend payer it is one of the surest properties in British Columbia, and
oue tbat gives every promise of increasing its output aa months go by. Notwithstanding these facts, the St. Kugene aud the North Star, two leaders in
the mineral world today, are left cut of
these lists. West Kootenay editors
should study tbe map of South Kasl
Kootenay and the reports of ore outputs.
It will wise them up.
Sullivan Dowi.
The news of tbe practical suspension
of work 00 the Sullivan had a depressing
effect on the Spokane stack market, aud
tbe bears pouuded the stock down to
about nine cents, It will be 14 to 16
cents inside of 60 or 90 days, and tbe
probabilities are that within six months
it will reach 20 to 25 cents, if not more.
Tbe Sullivan is a mine.

the success which has atteuded our effort
is in a large measure due lo you. The

Wc desire to thank you for tbe example
of perseverance you have been to us, and
ask you to accept Ibis little token of the
esteem in which you are held, and Id
conclusion we will trust that the sll loving Father may long spare you and yours
to be witb ua, not only iu the guiding of

This issue of Tbe Herald closes the
third volume. Neat week we start on
the fourth volume and our fourth year
la Cranbrook. It hardly serins possible
that ihree years have elapsed since the
flrst Issue of Tbe Herald. Craubrook
at that time consisted cf half a donen
buildings and an Immense pay e'mte of
hope. The Herald building was a lone
ly structure on ihe prairie, away to the
sootb of "Jim" Ryan's hotel. Durick
avenue was defined by the fact tbat
(Jeorge Hllliard's blacksmith shop and
Tbe Herald office were on the same
street. Liter Mrs. Donahue built tbe
Kilt Kootenay hotel and George Leitch
erected the postoffice building, which
wai occupied by It H. Iteattle's diUg
store aud a furnishing stock owned by
the Leitch boys. Then came G. H.
Miner all the way from Manitoba to
open a hardware store. Prom tbat
time on you could sit to front of "Uncle
Jim's" hotel and hear Ililliard. liy an,
Beattie, Archie Leitch and Hutchison
talk about the bright future of the
"city" of Craubrook. And now and
then "L'nele J m" would say to Archie
Leltcb, "Say, old man, what are you going to do with all tbat lumber you are
plllig up at your mill'" And Mr. Leitch
would come back with the query, "Oh,
1 don't know. What are you doing with
this hotel out on the prairie?"
That   was   during Cranbrook's   Hrst
summer, and a reference  Is made to It
simply to illustrate the wonderful pre
gress the town has made,
The Herald has never missed an Issue.
It bas appeared week after week,
msnth after month, and yearafter year.
Its flies contain an accurate history of
Craabrook, from her birth to tbe present. Tbey lell of the hopes and alms of
tbe people; the serious and joyous
pbases of their lives; the coming and
going of each one; the progress made
each week; the construction of every
shack aod more pretentious building.
Tbe paper has carried to the outside
world the news of the town and the
news of the district. In eastern and
western Canada, In nearly every state
tn the union, to the money centers of
Old Kngland, The Herald bas told of the
marvelous resources oiSoutb Hast Kootenay and of the stability aud prosperity
of Cranbrook.
Through all this time The Herald has
adhered strictly to thc policy of pub
Uihlng the news of Cranbrook and the
district. It has never used the columns
for personal animosity, or permitted
any man to so use tbem, It has en
deavored to do what was right, as the
editor could see It, and trust to tbe
future for results.
We bave not tried to please every
ooc. Tbeonewipaper man who would
attempt tbat l» either a jibberlng Idiot
or a rank hypocrite, We have made
some enemies and we are proud of it
We trust we have also made some
friends. We have endeavored to pur

worst case of smallpox cannot be effectively cured in three days, simply by the
use of cream of tartar. This is tbe
never failing remedy. Once ounce of
cream of tartar dissolved in a pint of
boiling water, to be drunk when cold at
short intervals. It can be taken -it any
time, aud is a preventative as well as a
curative. It il known to have cured
100,000 cases without a failure. I bave
myself restored hundreds by this means.
It never leaves a mark, never causes
blindness, and always prevents tedious
lingering." |

It ia curious, but nevertheless true,
that a fict impressed in rhyme remains
in memory longer than in any other
manner. "When doea Easter come?" ia
the annual aud oft-repeated question,
therefore the following verses are given
as reliable answer for all time :
When March tbe twenty-first ia past.
Just watch the silvery moon,
Aud when you see it fult and round,
Know Eaatet'll be here soon.
After tbe moon haa reached its full,
Then Easter will be here,
The very Sunday after,
On each a id every year.
But it it hap on Sunday,
The moon should teach its height,
Tbe Sunday after thla event
Will be the Easter blight.
Fortunately, when not convenient to
walch the "silvery moon," au almanac
gives information when it is full, which
answers the same purpose.
