Advertise Cranbrook,
The Herald would like to suggest to
the merchants of Crauhrook the necessity of advertising ihe town, uml say
that one and all overlook a method thai
costs nothing and yet is very effective
If each merchant would hnve printed lu
one corner of their letter heads a "small
card giving the population ol Die town,
the resources ol the dis net and the lias-
is of prosperity of Cranbiook as a commercial, mining, lumbering and railroad
center, it would do great work in spreading information of a solid character
nbout the town nml the district, and lie
of great value to the community. The
Herald editor hus not written a letter for
a long lime that was not written on paper with such n card There is no additional cost for the stationery whelher it
is printed in Crnuhrook or hy an caslertr

Herald would suggest that such a curd
be added.    It will do a power ol good,

subsidized by the British and Canadian
governments to the extent ol fl ,500,000

Rossland. It. C, July 27.—Louis A,
Double, superintendent nf the Le Roi
mine, wns iuslantly killed this morning
hy a cave in on the 600 foot level of the
mine. Two tiiiiberuitu, William L.
McDonald mid Daniel Gunii, were buried in the same mass of rock, but were
extricated alive and practically unhurt
Their escape was miraculous.
The Incidents atteudlug the fatality
are of tlie most sensational nature, aud
the terrible event has caused a gloom
throughout the city thut is almost unprecedented, At the Le Roi a connection was being made between lhe 700
and the 600 foot levels, and the men
were removing lhe sill floor of the 700
level. The work had been under way
for several days, but the results were mi-
satisfactory. The slopes on the 600 foot
level were filled with thousands of tons
of loose waste reck, lelt after lhe ore
bad been extracted, and ihis was bearing
down upon ihe timbering of the floors
beneath iu an ominous manner, causing
lhe timbers to slew and shift.
Trying to Save the Ore.
Instructions were issued lo bulkhead
at close Intervals, but even this did not
appenr to have the desired effect U
wns essential, in order to save the ure
yet unstoped OU the 700 fool level, tbut
the silt floor should be maintained lu-
tact, and Superintendent Diuikle had
been underground fur many hours, personally looking after tlie placing in
position of limbers. At an early hour
this morning be was on ihe sill floor of
the 700 foot level with three men, while
n gang of 15 meu were doing similar
work on the twelfth floor, about 20 feet
below. Despite the limbering, it became evident that the flour would not
hold- and as a last resort an effort wus
made to blast an opening that would
permit tbe waste to escape through the
waste shoot into lower levels, thus relieving the weight above and strengthening tbe supports beneath. The shoot
became choked, and a shot was placed
to dislodge llie boulders aud timber
forming the obstruction. The shot
failed to explode, ami Mr. Dunkle went
buck with his two men to relight the
fuse, stating that If it failed to relieve
the situation he would abandon lhe effort to save the level.
While the trio were within the daugei
/one tbe floor gave way, and a cataclysm
of rock, timbers and debri, poured iu
upon them with a   roar  and B crush that
resounded through the miles of mine
workings. The muss was no less than
16.1 feet long, uud contained thousands
of tons of material, the aggregation of
years of work iu the upper levels.
The men were ut the center ofthe
slide, and Mr. Dunkle was caught in the
avalanche und crushed to death. Mc

Joe Thome led the party of rescuers
who gut the timhcriiien out, After they

work culling timbers lo effect their release.
The mine wns closed on Sunday in
consequence of the accident, and it is
not likely that work will be resumed until after tlie funeral of Superintendent
Dunkle, which takes place tomorrow afternoon al 3 o'clock.

No further trouble is expected in the

R.   K.   Beatlie   relumed   lust   Mum lay
from a trip lo Winnipeg. He stopped
at Oak Luke and Portage la Prairie
while gone, und in this way snw nml

"Winnipeg is getting to be n great city,''
said Mr. Beattie. "ll is wonderful how
it has improved with its new*, business
blocks, nud ii is growlug more metropolitan every year. During the exposition
week thousands upon thousands of bus*
iness men mul farmers from all over
western Canada and northern Minnesota
nml North Oak..in flocked in there,
packing the trains each day. While
Ihere I saw several good ball gullies and
lhe Winnipeg Maroons have won tbe
pennant in the Northern league, which
lucludes several clubs from   the  States.
It Is a meat year for Manitoba, and the
real estate business Is flourishing. Take
it Portage la Prairie, my father, who Is
engaged iu that line, has put through at
least one reality deal every day for the
past few months, and they range from
$1000 lo $15,000 or $20,000 each, And
lhat is the way the real estate business
is nil over western Manitoba. The demand for farm lauds Is increasing aud
the immigration from the United States
is growing larger. Business in all lines
bus beeu good down there, uml the people generally nre feeling good."

G. W. Hull, general manager of the

ihut uo meeting bad been held yet, but

11 is generally known lhat considerable of lhe work done under the supervision of Mr. Austin is not satisfactory,
ami thai a large amount of money will
have to be raised to make the uecessaty
changes, Mr. Hull stated at the time
Senator Turner was here tbat there wus
no questlou about tbe work proceeding,
and Senator Turner stated to The Herald. Iluit it was simply 11 question as tribe best method to adopt lor lhe changes
that were to be made.
The company has invested over $100,-

iu consequence Ihere can be no reason
why tlie work should mil proceed
Auolhei reason for Ihis belief is tbe fact

A Bri-jilt Future.
II. W. Ross, a mining man of 20 yean
experience in British Columbia and the
Pacific coast states, was in town Monday. Mr, 'Ross is representing a syndicate thut is looking over South Fast
Kootenay with lhe idea of purchjsing
some desirable properties. Speaking of
the dislrict he said, "This part of Sjuth
Bast Kootenay looks very i>ood indeed
from a milling standpoint. Tbe geological formation is most favorable and I
am of the opinion that there is a ureal
future ahead for this section. We do
not expect lo do anything in the way of
work al present, but what I secure will
lie witli the idea of its value iu the near
future. I have beeu looking at some
gold properties aud also at several copper propositions. I believe the time is
coming when this district will he rich in
miniug development, with more railroads, smelters, refineries, and all that
goes to mike up a great mining community. 1 have beeu surprised to see
so much poor work us 1 have found in
this section. Why a man should spend
big sums digging Into the ground on the
showing of only barren quartz, I cannot
comprehend- Digging won't create Values iu mining. Il is true that depth
may, and generally does, develope richer
ore, hut there must tlrst be ludicalious
of values 011 the surface. Mining should
be treated In a businesslike way. It is
not such a gamble as many believe, but
a study and a science. I believe that
depth is going to be necessary to get at
lhe real values of your copper properties,
and I am of the opiuion that this district will prove to be rich iu copper.
But business methods must be used to
lusure success iu South Kast Kootenay,
ns well us In any other mining country."
The Elmore New Process,
in view of tbe great iuteiest taken in
the new Klmorc process, especially as
It Is so applicable to tlie Kootenay ores
and will if found satisfactory as now
seems practically certain, revolutionize
and start a great boon iu cupper mining
In British Columbia. We publish a
letter from Mr. ,I. D. Kendall, London
Hug., wbo Is well known on the lOast,
to Mr. K 13, Sawyer, managing director
of the Dominion D-velopment syndicate
of Loudon, Kngland, who is at present
visiting the province In the Interests of
hi, company.
Many mining men of world wide reputation have expressed favorable
opinions of tlie process, Mr. Kendall's
belug particularly interesting to British Columbians,;
Dear Sir,—In reply to your enquiry
I have much pleasure in giving you my
opinion as to tbe Elmore oil concentrating process. I have examined, whilst
yet at woik. the oaly plant yet built,
thai erectcil In Wales for the purpose
of treating tbe yellow copper ore from
theOladsdlr mine. It saves about eighty*
live per com of Die values as against If.
by   ordinary    water    conceiilrailon   as
previouslv carriel out with the best
machluery that could be got. The ore
contains only about 13 per cent of copper
1 have also made numeroui laboratory
tests with the oil process. For ores
which contain finely disseminated metallic minerals I think oil Is greatly superior to water as a concentrating medium, for It comes at once into contact
with, licks up and saves a large proportion of the floating particles which pulverization produces In such minerals
and which are unavoidably lost wheu
water is used. To save by water tbe
mineral treated must link, but a very
large proportion of some minerals such
as cbalcopyrlte and letrahydlte, will
not sink as It is well known to all engineers who have given any attention to
metallurgy. I recently made a number
of concentrating tests with water of 1
yellow copper ore containing about 2 i
percent uf copper. The average loss
was TO. 3 per ceni copper mainly lislug
trom floating ore, the surface of ibe
water being covered with a scum of me*
talic mineral tu ore and the more liuely
It Is disseminated the greater la the
loss In water concentration. The use
of oil prevents that loss a.most entirely,
I feel very sure that ibe process bas a
great future tjr beside enabling many
ores to be  profitably  tteated  in water
II will always be useful as a tailings
in mills bandllug ore lu which a large
proportion of ihe metallic minerals is
so scattered through the gangue mat It
can be saved by handsemng aud jigs,
In Htiiiiti Columbia and other parts
of Cauada 1 know of a large nuinucr of
deposits which canuot be worked If
water concentration were use bin which
wiih the Kitnore process wcual become
very valuable properties. Mines that
have been worked at a p-rofl t when
smelting ihelr produce could greatly Increase that profit by employing the
Elmore process prior 10 smelling, Mucn
ore Ibal bas uutierio been amalgamated
aud cyanlded wtll I am sure be more
economically dealt wltb In ibe future
by oil concentration.

No one excuses McAdams lor some of
his unwise and foolish restrictions upon
the court, yet, as n young man ol Inexperience in such matters, nine months
seems a cruel sentence for contempt. A
fine or a rigorous reprimand would, in
the eyes of the people, tmiiutniti the
dignity of the judiciary, and had .ii tin*

but I declare to you that from thenceforth I knew no pence of mind. That
face was ever before me, looking out
from under u dainty gypsy bat, pale,
pure, perfect In outline, with n luxuriant mass of soft brown boll" full of
shiny ripples, dark eyes, a little red
mouth nml shining white teeth.
"Some dreamy llttlo chit," I said to
myself again anil again, "with a pretty face nnd a head full of romance. I
wish I had never seen ber. At nil

have met for the first and hist time; so
I'll forget her."
Brave word*! 1 could not forgot her,
and just then, to mid to my perplexity,
my regiment was ordered off to India.
A few days before embarking 1 received n letter from my grandfather,
SU* John FTnlbrooke, urging me to run
down to The Towers in order Hint l
might meet the lady who was destined
to be ray future wife, My answer was
short and to lhc point:

Two years afterward 1 returned to

Ah, my dear fellow, It Is only the old

She was u distant relative of my
