Por some ^llmc past trouble bas been
brewing between the miners and companies on the North Star and Sullivan
hills, which, if not amicably arranged,
will spread to the adjacent camps ami
result in 3000 or more miners going on

from  a  prolonged visit  to Brad's old

John It. Costigan, attorney general,
and F. M. Medhurst, M. P. from Cranbrook, ate in town for a brief visit; Mr.

Four Feet of Fine Ore, Most ol* W tiich
Will Be Shipping.
Some Claims On   thc  St. Marys
Which are Showing Up In
Good Shape.
The Peilro, situated 011 the railroad,
four miles this side of Kimberley, is
making a wonderfully good showing up
lo this time.
It is but a few days since work wns
commenced ou this claim, whieh is the
property of the Kootenay St Algoma
Mining company, of Craubrook.
At the surface, when work was com-
incnced, there was very fine ore, and
now, at a depth of 16 feet, there is a
ledge, foil*- feet wide, one hall of which
is reported to average $64 per ton in all
vnluea*—37 011 ucob silver, (8 in gold and
the balance in lead aud copper. The re
ui-'imliig two feet lu nearly ftS good, nnd
there is but little doubt that the whole
thing will ship at a nice profit.
If the Pedro continues to produce this
value of ore in the game quantity, \t wil!
nol take very hmg to add u not her shipper to the list of producing mines adjoining Cranbiook.
II Is Believed That llie Sl. Marys District
Will Make a (iooil One.

Manager Jake pink, of thc P.'S. M.
Co,, was the most surprised man iu the
city last night. Coming out of his private oflice to take his departure for his
home on the heights, he found the employes of the house, 50 in number, assembled in the main salesroom. Visions
of a strike flitted through his mind hut
were instantly dismissed as being impos-'
sible. His suspense was quickly relieved
as Sam MorroWi chief salesman stepped
forward and presented him with a beautiful Swiss chronometer encased in massive gold cases. Tlie front of the enses
were engraved wilh a picture of the

year, 1907, underneath] on the reverse a

store, with the figuieS iHqS, the time of

of the front case wan the simply-worded
inscription, " Prcn-iented to Juke Fink by

from W. ti. Tate, the well-known jewel*

of a high grade—bornite and native—
and if development revealsa fair quantity
the claims will make a very valuable

five to eight feet, standing above the surface of the ground for a surface distar.ee
of more than a mile. On one or two of

largely of pyrrhotite carrying ns high as

so far consist of but little more than surface prospecting, with very encouraging
results, as noted below regarding the different properties:

Tbe Feruie Free Pica*: ot the a.d contains what purports to be au answer to
two articles in the Herald Of the \ Wi
following election
The Herald proposes lo take bul little
notice of the articles iu question tor the
reasou that no writer possessed ol any
self respect cares lo enlti into uu argument With 80 editor who is evidently a
graduate of or a descendant from tbe
ranks of the London costermongers,
When a writer's strong argument is
'■liar," and "malicious liar," it follows
that the cause he advocates is totally devoid of merit, and will not bear investigation by the seeker after tacts.
Mr. Fernie admitted, In this office, to
the editor ol this paper, that be hud
promised l-'ort Sleele that if be was elected he would use hia Influeuce to have the
government oflices retained at Fort
Sleele, but was euough of a politician,
to add, however, that " thiH need uot

The Herald whether be dues or not
for this statement iii a fact just the saute,

Free Press may summon lo his aid can
not alter it.
Mr. Femle also sought the support of
thin paper, but wus lold lhat tbe paper
would be strictly independent politically
during tbe campaign just closed. Mr.
Pernie replied lhat "tbe purse" had
great influence in such cases, in which
remark the manager heartily concurred,
with the suggestion that in this Instance
the "purse" might be used iu purchasing the plant outright, aud that it was a
good piece of property, from a publish
er's standpoint. Mr. Fernie replied that
he would "call again."
As to whether The Herald has beeu
derelict to its supporters, or not—'.hat is
a matter resting solely between the parties interested, ami is no way connected with tbe Free Press If it will do
tbe talented editor of that sheet auy
good to know it, however, Tbe Herald
will state that its business iu times past
was never so prosperous, and if tbe Herald has an enemy iu Cranbrook or tributary camps, it bus yet to learn of it.
These explanations are made more
with a view to obviating auy false im
pressions that might arise in the minds
nf the public were the articles to pass
unnoticed, than as an answer to the Free

surprise, therefore, to mnny to know
that tin* eleventh annual report ofthe

The bureau ofthe statistical export In

and thuy are distributed throughout
various occupations, which tho Btntls-
tlcal experts have endeavored to atato
with undevtatlng exactness. Of tho
totul number of divorced women employed, it seems thut .21 per cent, are
bookbinders, .us are shoemakers and
.00 ure corset makers, A much smaller
proportion, .48, ure saleswomen, while
OP are telegraph und telephone operators. Stenographers and typewriters

WcsrincH That Afflict■ So Many Women.
A limit-, t overy woinuu meets dully
-with innumerable little worries in her
household uffairs. Ferbups tbey are
too small to uutioo au hour afterward.
but these constant little worries bave
their effect upon tbe nervous system.
Indeed, it is these little worries that
make bo many women look j retnature-
ly old. Tbeir effect may also be notice-*
able in other ways, suoh as sick or uer-
fons headaobe, fickle appetite, rains
in the back or loins, palpitation of the
heart, and a feeling or constant weari-
iiesB. If yon are experiencing any
of these symptoms it Is a lign that tbe
blood and nerves need attention, and
tor this purpose Dr. Williams' Fink
Pills for Pale People ate woman's beat
friend. Tbey are particularly adapted
aa a regulator of the ailments that
afflict women, and tbrongh tbe blood
and nerves act npon tbe whole system,
bringing brightness to the eye, and a
glow of health to tbe cheeks. Thousands of grateful women have testified
to the benefit derived from the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Among thoie who freely acknowledge
the benefit derived from this great
medicine is Mrs. Jaa. Hughes, of Dro-
more, P. £. I.,a lady who possesses the
respeot and esteem of all wbo know
her. Mrs. Hughes speaks of her illness
and core us follows: "Until abont
fonr years ago I had always enjoyed
good health, and was looked npon as
one who possessed a robust constitution. Then I began to grow weak, was
troubled with severe headaches, and
frequently with violent pains in the
region of my heart.from whieh I would
only find ease through bot application!*.
My stomach also gave me mnoh
trouble, and did not appear to perform
its customary functions. I was treated by a skillful doctor, bnt although under his oare for several months, I i_re\v
gradually weaker and weaker, until
finally I was not aide to leave my bed.
Then I called in another doctor, whose
treatment, although continued for some
eight months, was equally fruitless. I
was scarcely able to hold my head np,
and was so nervous that I was crying
half the time. My condition can best
be described as pitiable. At this time
a friend brought me a newspaper in
which was the story of a cure of a woman whose case wuh ic many respects
similar to mine, through the uso of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I tlnn decided
that I wonld give the pills a fair trial.
When I began tbe use of tbe pills I was
in snch a aonditior-. that tho doctor told
me I would always be an invalid. I
used fonr boxes of the pills before I
noticed any beuetlt. nnd then 1 eould
see they wero helping me.1 used twelve
boxes in all, covering a treatment of
nearly six mouths, when 1 was as well
as ever I had been in my life, and I
have ever since enjoyed the boil of
health. 1 believe thero would lie fewer suffering women throughout tbo
world if they would du r.t* I did—give
Dr. Williams' Piuk I'ills a fair trial.
A medioine that iH mil right is wnrNo

K a re e aural   Country   Do.-torn   Should
Keep Anny From New York.
Dr. Slu-ndy. one of tho fnmntis New
fork physicians, evidently thinks the
successful country doctor should not go
to New York, judging from his ndvico on
this subject in Success:
"The medical profession Is one of the
very hardest iu which to get n foothold
in New York. It is rare tbnt nn out of
towu doctor succeeds In establishing himself here. I hnve seen some most tragic
failures. A few years ngo a celebrated
doctor from a New England town got a
pluee on the stuff ot one of the city colleges to lecture on a small stipend. He
brought his family to the city, nnd his
wife booh became popular iu society, but
he eould get no practice. He got deeper
nnd deeper iu debt, und one dny be committed suicide. Soon nfter a popular
physician from a New Jersey town eame

thought lie eould buy it for $30,000. I
told him it would cost bim $100,000. I
also told hlm about the tragedy mentioned above Hnd others. He did not
"No, n country doctor can do nothing In
New York. Tho conditions nre altogether different. Theu* everybody knows him,
knows his horso and his trip, nnd they
see him every day. There he Is n standing advertisement. Here the only place
where he can put his name is on the window or door, ai>|1 it wight stay there till
doomsday und uo one ever know anything about him. But if he conies here
nt first and is willing to work und wait
he stands a chance. If he hns not enough
money, however, to pay his expenses for
the lirst live years, thero is danger that
he will drift into quackery, the pntent
nostrum business or criminal practice.
and once there the odds are against his
ever becoming a reputable physician.
"I can think of no condition in our life
more discouraging than that of n doctor
in n grent city Without money, without
friends, with nothing to show for himself hat his sign ou his door aud his
sheepskin on his office wall."
