Moyie has passed through the most
prosperous year of iis history— the development iu the mines and the growth
of the town having ulmost doubled iu
lhat time. We find that during the past
year the Sl. Ellgeue mine has shipped
over 17,000 tons of ore. of a total Value
of over one million dollars. As no imp-*
inculs were made until the month of Maj
It can he truthfully said that the above
amount is really ouly Ihe output ot
eight months. The payroll into the
town during the past year has averaged
nearly $30,000 per mouth, or 65301000 for
the twelve mouths. It is, theiefore,
not to be wondered nt that Movie, the
town with 11 population of eight bundled, is experiencing nn unprecedented
era of good times.
The Si. Eugene is the principal mine
in lhe Moyie camp. This property is
now world-fatuous, and stands as one ol
the largest silver-lead mines on the
American continent. The St. Eugene
consolidated Mi nmn Company's holdings consist of nine full claims and five
large fractions, They begin at the shore
of Moyie lake and extend hick a distance of over n mile mid a half, and
cover nearly the entire mountain imnied
lately to lhe rear of the towu. The
property Is now well developed. The
ll Ira tor, which has a capacity of j
400 tons per day. is running steadily and
regular shipment-, of concentrates to
both the smelters of the United States,
and Chili are being made. Tbe company has now 270 men employed.
The Society Girl is situated Immediately to the cast and on the same lead

amour ts to about 300 feet of tunnels and
two shafts. There ts a splendid showing
iu all of lhe workings. Several carloads
of ore have been shipped during tbe
year, ami the mine bas been equipped
with a laige boarding house, bunk
house, ore bin, etc., and everything is iu
shape for pushing work on a large scale.

The Aurora, situated on the west side
of the lake, and according to the best
authority, on the continuation of the St.
Eugene lead, gives promise of becoming
one of the big mines of this camp-
There is a forceof men driving a tunnel
to tap tbe lead and are close to tbe
ore body. It is safe to say tbat within
sixty days this property will be shipping
ore to the smelter. The Aurora is
owned by Thomas Rader, O. J. Johnson
and Capt. I. B. Sanborn.
The Iron Mountain, situated to the
south of Moyie about three miles, and
owned by J. J, Murphy, is a gold and
copper proposition which is turning ou*.
in such a manner as lo surpass all expectations.
There are a number of other very
promising properties in tbe vicinity of
Moyie, but there has not been a sufficient
amount of development work done on
them to justify giviug tbem special mention, The lown, from a commercial
point of view, bas experienced wonderful development during tbe year. In
fact, tbe busiuess street has undergone a
complete change, owing to the many-
new buildings erected and new firms
that have engaged in business. Today
the merchants arc carrying better and
larger slocks and iu consequence are doing a much belter business. Ever branch

Next Tuesday is the lirst day of the
new year and the first day of ihe new
century, It is an appropriate time to
muke resolutions, und The Herald, with
an idea of being of assistance, makes the
following suggestions:
Resolve not to be hypocritical.
Resolve to lie liberal-minded.
Resolve  that  the world is lull of p.
pie ns good as yourself, aud that you are
as good ns any ol them,
Resolve to give other people credit for
iheir opinions, even if they do differ
with you.
Resolve to sny a kind word when the
opportunity offers.
Resolve to quit lying, unless you cnu
do yourself or Bomeoue else good by it.
Resolve that the member of any other
church probably stands as  well  as  you
do in the eyes of the Lord.
Resolve, if you are a single man. to
get married as soon as you can find
some good woman foolish enough lo
have you.
Resolve, if you aie a single woman, to
cultivate those traits that will make you
a good wife instead of a gossiping busybody.
Resolve, if you are it married woman,
to say a few kind words about your acquaintances, instead of roasting Ihem ut
every opportunity.
Resolve, if you are a preacher, lhat
you have noi a monopoly on the transportation to heaven, uud tbat llu-re may
be others who say less aud do mure.
Resolve to work for the town in which
you live and not be n knocker.
Resolve to be decent and manly even
if yon have lo give up some of your bad
Resolve lo be on the square. It won't
hint you.
Resolve to show more humanity nnd
less cussedness in your makeup.
Resolve (and remember this one) to
take your home paper, and pay for it.
Mr. GUI, who has charge of the town-
site ofiice during Mr. linker's absence,
says thai notwithstanding thnt real estate is naturally slow at this time of the
yeur, yet he finds lhat lots in Cranbrook
are in great demand, and purchases are
being made almost every day. There
are quite a uumher of persons gelling
ready to build, and are now selecting
locations. This speaks well for the
growth of Craubrook,
Did you eat too much ?
Next Tuesday you can sty "I'll quit,"
But you won't.
The Nelson Economist seems to be
playing the roll of "Me Too'' to the
Tribune of that city. -,
Next Tuesday is a good day for the

Too Much tturn-s,
Charles Mnckiiy once told this story
In connection with a Burns memorial:
Mackay hud promised to collect shillings for some monument to the honor
of Burns, nud he applied with confl-
donce for a subscription to an Eng-
Uslmiau who had represented In purlin-
nieut for many years a certain Scottish borough,
"No," said Mr. Fortescue Harrison.
"1 am no longer in parliament, and 1
have now much pleasure In refusing
to subscribe the shilling which In
former days 1 should have been
obliged to give. What 1 bave suffered
through Burns heaven alone can
tell! First, 1 bad to praise him In tho
most fulsome mnnner, without having
read his works. Then 1 had to learn
to reclto portions of bis poems by
henrt, and in doing so to give tho
verses as much as possible with a
Scotch accent. 1 have had to walk
without my hat nnd with the rnln
pouring down upon my unprotected
head as leader of a procession lu honor of Bums, nnd under theso clrcum-
stances I refuse with genuine delight
to give a shilling or any smaller sum
to the object you have fu view."
Tbe Lnslest Man,
The laziest mnn In North America
discovered himself tbe other evening
In tlie swell bachelor apartment1* not

lives. He was lying on a couch In his

the cigar went out—that Is to sny,
thc lire at the end of the cigar departed. Thc mnn raised himself on one
arm with grent effort, nnd snnpped the

a knock at the door, nnd a messenger

The boy Immlcil the mnn oa the

"No. tlint's nil," said the man. "Tnke

No Nonsense,
Once In awhile there is a princes
from whose lips plain words full moro
readily thau precious stones. One such,
the   wife uf one of   London's  lending
editors, figures in tbe "Personal Recollections" of II. Sulherlum) Kihvillils.
The editor hud occasion to present a
distinguished gentleinnu to his wife.
He spoke as a hast mini, but he wns not

Did Muley divine that thai destitute
child, always silent ami snd, htl) mure
need of his affection tlmn ourselves? I
do not know, but so it seeii'i'i! to he.
For his part Andrcsito hnd come to

These escapades repented theuiselvs

But thu foundling wns net satisfied

To muny fleshy people summer la
tbe time of much misery from chafing und skin Irritation, Somo complain particularly of sore foot, caused by perspiration while walking.
Others suffer from itching skin dis-
eiises, Hitch us eczema, salt rheum,

Persons who Imvo tried Dr. Chase's
Ointment     fur     Itching  or   Irritated
skin ure enthusiastic iu rocominend-
ing it to their friends because it iu
tho only preparation which affords
Instant relief, and speedily brings
about a thorough cure.
Ab a matttr of fact Dr. Chase's
Ointment bus COMO to be considered tho Hlnndard preparation for
itching skin discuses, and has by far
the largest sate of any similar remedy.
Try it wlum the feet are chafed,
and sore with walking. Try it when
the skin is chafed, Inflamed and irritated. Try It for pimples, black-
hoads, hives, eczema, salt rhutimj and
every form of skin diseases, it cannot fail you.
Mr. M. A. Smith, Brockville, Ont.,
writes: "I Buffored many yoars with
challug. burning, and Itching of lho
skin, and never found anything to do
tne gootl, or oven glvo mo relief, un
til I used Dr. Ohaso's Ointment. 1
would advise all sufferers and especially bicycle riders, to always have
Il uu hnud."
This is a copy o( tho letter from
Mrs. James Bradley, Amberley, Huron county,  Ontario:
"I was afflicted with eczema for
over six mouths, and it was so bad
that my head was a solid muss of
scabs, and would ulcerate when
scratched. The Itching was intense,
l could not stand it. I had doctored fnr four months, und it did ; not
do me any' gootl. I had to give tip"
housework and go homo to my
Mother. I tried nearly everything,
but could got no relief. Sooingyour
advertisement in ono of tho Toronlo
papers I decided to try Dr. Chase's
"I got relief from the first application, nud Jt only required one box
and part u( another to euro um,
I am sure thut Dr. Chose'd Ointment
Is worth lis weight, iu gold."
Dr. Chase's Ointment has never yet
been known to fall to cure piles. It
is Uu* only remedy guaranteed io

"Turkey buzzards are the garbage
collectors of Charleston, 8. C," soya a
traveling man quoted In the Philadelphia Iteconl. "Now, if you know anything of the nature of tf turkey buzzard
yon must know thnt ordinarily It's n
very shy sort of erenturo and generally
avoids civilization, particularly us represented in the large cities. These
binls. however, ure tame, and they strut
about rhe heels of the people in the
markets picking up bits of refuse meat
and vegetables, The buzzard hus a vo-
raotous appetite und there always seems
to he*, room Inside of him for a choice bll
of tainted beef or decayed cabbage.
There is a five-dollar fine fnr any tnun
molesting uny of theso birds. I understand that Charleston is the only city
in the country tbut has this unique sp-
tern of garbage collecting,"

The Btory of Virginia tihc-Mjuiere, the
French heroine, who was decorated
with the Order Ol the Legion of Honor
for distinguished bravery during one
of the campaigns of the French army
in Spain, is graphically told ity Ehnlle
Cere in his history of "Madame Bans-
Gene et Les Femmes Soldata."
In the conscription nt lSOfi a young
mini by the mime of Qhesqulere wasen-
listed among the forced recruits of the
department of the Haut-Rbin. The
beardless conscript was frail und delicate, utterly uuable to bear the fatigues
ami hardships of war. Realtenig lhe
physical Incapacity of her twin brother,
whom she very closely resembled, the
brave and unselfish sister, Virginia, derided 111 lake hte pluee in (lie raukh.
With the courage of a high and noble
motive, Virginia Qhesqulere begged her
parents to allow her to do for Prance
What her brother's ill health reiulered
it Impossible for him to do, and mi earnestly did the young patriot plead thnt
ahe won their consent,
Donning lier brother's apparel, the
intrepid girl presented herself at the
depnrtmcnl on the following duy, and
wni   assigned   to   the Twenty-seventh
regiment by the unsuspecting officer
whose tint) il was to enroll the re-
For six years the brave young woman
preserved her disguise, and during this
period was several times rewarded for
gallant conduct. At Wagram the
'•pretty sergeant," an the modest, ef-
femlnate-looking young soldier was
generally culled, had the honor uf saving the "life of the colonel of the regiment, who had fallen inio the Danube,
and would have perished but for her
On the 2d of May, 1808, after the battle of Lisbon, the "pretty sergeant"
performed a deed of valor that won for
her the decoration of the Legion of
The girl soldier, who was now sergeant of a company of rifleman, perceived ut a short distance from the field
nf buttle the figure of the colon-el of the
regiment lying under the body of his
dead horse, Turning to two comrades,
she snid: "The body of a colonel is a
flag that belongs to the regiment, and
the Twenty-seventh will retake it."
As she spoke she advanced toward
lite prostrate ofllcer, followed by two
soldiers. Her comrades, both weak
from loss of blnod, were unable to reach
lhc goal, so that the burden of the affair
fell upon her slender shoulders.
On reaching the spot she found it
impossible to lift the heavy body of the
fallen officer, tug nnd struggle as she
might! She wns now, moreover,beset
by two straggling English soldiers.
Seized by a sort of frenzy nt this cowardly interruption of a merciful deed,
the little sergeant tired ut one of her as-
Batlants, wounding him in the shoulder,
and then disabled the other by vigorous blows from hor gunstock,
Hoth Britons surrendered, and ai
sUted her In placing the officer, who
still brcnthed, upon* a horse which had
Strayed near. Compelling the Englishmen to allow themselves to be attached
to the horse's tall, the "pretty sergeant"
mude a triumphal entry Into camp,
and was soon ufter made a chevalier
of the legion.
One of the most singular circumstances of this curious history is that
after the wars were over the woman
who hnd won renown on the battle field
and public recognition from the empire chose to return to her native province, and resumed there the old,Simple,
tranquil domestic life of her childhood.
Virginia Ohesquiere died in ISR, but
her memory will always live among the
Inhabitants of Dclemont, who from one
generation to another will tell their
children's children the story of thegirl-
tsoldier who served France so heroically
for her brother's sake.—Youth's Companion. ,
Cultivate Cheer.
It was a favorite saying of Bancroft,
the historian, who wm a vigorous old
muu at 00, that the secret of long life
is in never losing one's temper. The
remark was simply a concrete way of
expressing the hygienic value of amiability—a principle which, until lately,
has scarcely been considered in the
1 mining of children. Hitherto we have
regarded fret fulness, .melancholy and
bad temper ab the natural concomitants
of illness. But modern science shows
that these men.lul moods have actual
power to produce disease. No doubt in
most cuses imperfect bodily conditions
are the cause of irritable anil depressed
feelings, yet sometimes the reverse is
line, und a better knowledge of physiological laws would show them to be
effect rather than cause. 'I'he fact that
discontented and gloomy people are
never In good health is an argument
in favor of the theory that continual
indulgence in unhappy thoughts acta
as a poison nnd creates some form of
disease.—Detroit Free Press.
