Good Reports From the Sand Creek
District—An Opinion of Value
On Surface Prospecting.
St. Marys Prairie.
A small syndicate of citizens lusl week
bought the Pedro mineral claim from S.
D, Pumpelly, of Luke creek. JThis clnim
promises to make 11 slir when developed,
having a magnificent showing of ore on
the surface the whole width ofthe ledge,
being heavily mineralized with galena
aud copper. The assay values run from
$20 to £6S per ton. Mr. McVittle, who
put the deal through,is confident that
the Pedto is a paying proposition from
lhe st.nl. a poor man's mine, in fact, and
that it wilt ht: one of the first shippers
over the North Stnr branch. It is situated within half a mile of the railway
and within half a mile of Marysville. It
is the intention of the owners to do
some slight development work at once
so as to show up thc ore in quantities,
lhe St. Marys Gold Mining and Milling company has been duly incorporated
lo work the Carrie Lee group of claims
on Luke creek, near Humes' ranch. The
first payments were made on Monday,
and McVittie St Hutchison will shortly
have a block of treasury shares to offer
the public. The head ollice of the company is Rossland. This company is the
first flotaliot. made by Mr. Saucier iu the
district, but he expects to enlist a large
mount of Rosslaud capital iu other
mines in onr neighborhood. A large
block of the St. Marys stock will be
sold in Paris, Prance, so that the company's treasury will be in a flourishing
condition within a very short time.
Work will be pushed at once on lhe Carrie Lee, which has now a shaft over
fifty feet in depth, and several deep open
cuts showing fine galena ore. The
ground lies withiu three-fourths of a
mile from the railroad, anil an easy
wagon road can be built at merely a
nominal cost.
Messrs. Saucier and McVittie have
gone on a four or five days' trip up the
St. Marys to look at the numerous prospects above lhe meadows.

Sand Creek District.
Cranston, Sept 15.—The long waited
for event, the inauguration of active de-
elopnient on the Empire mine occurred
today. Charles Estmere, secretary,
treasurer aud managing director of the
Kinpire Mining company, arrived here
yesterday with a complete on I fit for the
force ol men he hns employed to build
houses for continuous winter work on
thc Empire, and also mining supplies
for the two shifts thut he Mill immediately start to wotk. Tents will be used
uutil houses are finished. Everyone in
the camp is pleased to know that the
Empire will be developed for all she is
worth as it is the most widely known
property aud has the largest surface
showing iu the Sand Creek district.
The enterprise and energy of Mr. Estmere In bringing about the present conditions is appreciated and stamps
Charley a sure-enough rustler.
Much work has been done on Sand
Creek chums this season, and iu every
case with good results.
The Jessie, owned by the Bishop
Brothers, is showing up some very good
pyrrhotite carrying copper values as
high as 10 per cent which is very encouraging, as thc iron in this mine occurs in large, clean, compact bodies.
Work has recently been confined to tunnel No. 2, During the coming winter
tunnel No. 3 will be driven 200 feet to a
point immediately under tunnel No. 1.
James A. McBain St Son have been
driving a tunnel in the north end of McBain lull, with thc end In view of culling
several parallel ledges ou their properties They are now in about 95 feet and
nre cxpectiug to reach the first ledge
during this month. Il iscoufideutly expected that this tunnel will open up
sonic rich copper-gold oie
James McMillan has been working all
summer on his claims, the Cupper Plate,
ou Big Sand creek, and the Gladstone,
ou Little Sand creek, and is well pleased
with the marked improvement as to
quality nnd quantity of ore, aud the increased sue of ledges. Jim is a slayer,

Surface Prospecting.
Rossland Miner: Some time ago thc
Miner pointed out the value of surface
prospecting- and one or two recent incidents have revealed its efficiency.
Tlm is especially the case in this division, where there hns been a great deal
of surface disturbance, and where brush
aud trees often hide the ground. It
must be remembered thnt there nre 52.5
acres in a fidl claim. This te Jnrge
eUOUgU for a fair sized firm, nnd it ii
considerable ground to go over. It te
ter cheaper nml easier to search for the
pay shoots ami rich portions of ledges
near the surface than it is at depth. Iu
a number of instances tins can be shown
to be true in this camp, and the management ol a number of mining proper-
tie:: have been sorry that thev did not
explore the surface more thoroughly
than thev did. This regret came in
some instances alter many thousands of
dollars had been spent 111 costly subterranean work. This sorrow came, too,
perhaps, when the management bid exhausted nil, or nearly all, the t.uids
raised for development work. The making of open cuts, and the sinking of
droppings are comparatively inexpensive, and by this mentis the ledges can
be opened and sampled over long distances for the full length ol a claim.
The exact places where lhe ore carries
the highest value cau be ascertained, as
well as the di]) aid trend of the ledges,
The same exploration carried ou at a
depth would cost mnny thousands ol
dollars. Wheu the desired data as to
richness, dip and trend have beou determined, then the management has
facts at iis command sufficient to justify
exploration at depth. The work can
theu be carried pn wiih much greatei
chance of success. Iu many instances
guess work aud theory have supplied
the place of actual knowledge ami facts,
and the result has been failure, or a large
sum of money thrown away on useless
underground work.
By surface prospecting il is not meant
lhat there shall be "gophering," but
just enough work on the top lu serve as
a guide for underground operations.
Nearly every ledge has its barren, or
partly barren, und rich sections. Careful sampling near the surface will demonstrate where the richer ore shoots ate,
and the underground work can be made
so as to open these to lhe best advantage. The ore deposits of this camp are
little different from those in any other
mining section, aud there is, perhaps,
110 metalliferous region where surface
prospecting can be used to better advantage. Miuing men have to a large extent come to recognize this fact, ami in
the mining of the future there will be no
theoretical operations on mining properties, bnt more work dune 011 the surface
than there hus been in the past.
Bond On Red Line Thrown Up.
Rossland Minet; On September 151b
a payment was due from the Mackintosh
syndicate on a bond held by it on the
Red Line group, which is located in the
Windermere country. The money was
to have been paid iu Port Steele, but
was not. This abrogates the bond.
Hon. C. II. Mackintosh is iu Quebec,
where the wedding oi his son and Miss
Eileen Wright took place, and lhe reason
for forfeiting the bond could not therefore be ascertained, II was an open
secret around town, however, that the
report of the expert sent by tbe Mackintosh syndicate to examine aud report on
the property was unfavorable to it.
The great trouble was the remoteness of
the Red Line group from transportation.
Hyde Baker to be Married.
Charles Edwards has received word
from Hyde Baker to the effect lhat he
will be married soon and expects to return to Cranbrook with his bride some
time in November.
$5000 la One Day.
Matt Rockendorf received a letter
from Chesaw, Washington, the new mining camp near the boundary last week.
Oue of the incidents related ou miner-:'
luck was ihe case of a prospector who
had a small tent iu the towu. He got
up oue morning and spent several hours
that day prospecting, locating a promising claim which he sold in two days for
$5000 cash.
Opening Services st Catholic Church.
Last Sunday evening the new Catholic
church In this city was opened with ser
vices by Bishop Donteiiviile, of Vancouver, assisted by Father Coccola aud

biook, and the double duty of man
working for spiritual as well as material
progress. Confirmation services were

The Boers Insist On Their Position
--Mr, Cotton Says the Government is Safe.
Paris, Sept. ly —Captain Alfred Dreyfus, convicted by court martial on the
charge of treason with extenuating circumstances, has been pardoned. The
news did not cause any excitement in
Paris as it was expected. It Is belirved
lhat Dreyfus will be ordered to leave
France, and it is probable that the family will take up their residence at Folkestone, rear Dover. England, where a
cottage has been purchased for that purpose. 	
No War Yet.
London, Sept. ly —A call has been la-
sued for a cabinet council, to I* held
Friday, ami it is believed it te for the
purpose of gaining time to rush troops
to Cape Colony. Preparations for war
are going ahead in' the Transvaal, and it
is believed there lhat nothing can prevent war at this stage.
Carter Chaslaf Ralibow*-,
Vancouver, Sept. 14—Mr. F. Carter
Cotton, minister of finance, said in a le-
cent Interview that there was not the
slightest chniice of a dissolution this fall
and that tbe legislature would meet
January 4 with a clear government majority of two. That much was assured
for the government and it was expected
that this would be increased. The only
defections the government had were in
Joseph Martin and D. W. Higgins, and
in traveling through the country he had
fouud that the leaving of the former out
of the government had been one of the
most popular moves ever made by a government, while the cause of the latter's
defection was well known. As to the
eight-hour law, Mr. Cotton aald it had
come to stay, and that the history of all
legislation of this class made it evident
that there was never a retrogression
from a movement of this kind. He
thought eight hours was long enough
for any man to work.

A Big Institution.
It is worth the while uf any resident
of Cranbrook to take an hour of time
and visit the plant of lhe Craubrook
Lumber company aud see what an industry has been built Up there. The
new mill is now in operation, and a more
complete sawmill was never operated hi
the northwest. It has all modern improvements, and the rapidity with
which a pine log can be felled in Llie
hush aud pushed through that mill and
fall inlo lumber in the yard is marvelous. One of the latest improvement is
the great crane which enables them to
load Immense limbers as easily as if
they were throwing cord wood uu to the
car. Mr. A. Leiiell, Sr., the general
manager, goes on the theory lhat
nothing is too goad that gives efficiency
to the system, no matter the cost.

Mineral Exhibit al Spokane.
Spokesman-Review: The tent which
will hold the mineral display at the Spokane industrial exposition is erected aud
is being floored. Pyramids, shelves and
stands of many shapes are being erected
to hold the minerals. The tent will be
tbe firsl department of the exposition to
attract the attention of the visitor upon
entering the grounds. On the right
hand side, as one enters, will be found
the Washington ores, and just beyond
will be the Idaho displays. On tbe
opposite side, British Columbia, Oregon,
and Mi-niaiia will be found. The indications are tbat the entire space will be
filled to overflowing with fine displays.
Many of Ihe camps which have been
tardy in taking np the work of collecting displays are coming to a realizing
sense of the itnpoitaiice of being represented and aie hustling.
Moyle's Pay Roll.
Leader: Movie's payroll is increasing
every mouth. That of July was several
thousand dollars more than for June,
and that of August a great deal larger
than that of July. Last Saturday the
St. Kugene Mining company paid their
men in thc neighborhood of $6500, and
the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate,
operating tbe Lake Shore mine, nearly
fjono. This amount, with the payrolls
of the Society Girl, Park, Mitchell &

.lames Dudley's ease went tu prove
tliis. Very few knew why he came lu
the end he did, but this was the way of
When he was very youugand just out
from the Point, lie was sent tu a post
miles from anywhere, ami there he become engaged lu many llie M-year-uUl
daughter of Maj. Oorsehkov, She was
beautiful beyond the dreams ut artful' tou gorgeous for a mere Utile girl.
She BllOllld have been historical. Such
as Semlrnuiis, or ihe Queen of Shchti,
oi* Zenobia must huve been, she was;
therefore ii was natural enough that
Dudley should huve thought, himself In
love wilh her. But he was a clever fellow, wilh a very fair share of brains,
and she was an average child who was
uul uld enough to return his love, Imi
was mightily pleased in an innocent
fashion ol the Importance the engagement guve hei*.
At the end' uf a your Dudley was nr-
dered away. Absence opened his eyes
to ihe fad that beauty alone was nut
enough to rnnke him happy in his wife.
Anil he wrote to .''wilier ami asked her
tu release liim, ami lo her pnrents he
sent an explanation of his conduct.
The mail orderly put both letters into
Esther's hands. She read her own flrst.
She was 10 years old now, atul very
proud. She hud also grown to care
in a vogue sort of way for the
memory uf the lover uf her childhood. The letter cut her through
the Itussian down to the Tartar, and
she hated the man who she chose to
think had humbled her. She tore il and
the one tu her father Into small pieces.
There was one seuteuee iu tbe former
ihat she did not understand. The lieutenant had Bllld'i "'In lime yuu will
drink of the waters uf Lethe, and fur-
get me as utterly as 1 deserve lu he fur-
gut ten."
A few days later she told her father
she was nut going* lo marry James Dud-
"Dues he know it?" asked the major.
"What is yuur reason V"
"Nothing in particular. I simply
dun't want lo."
"Perhaps that wuu't satisfy him.
lluwever. it is just as well. I neversup-
pose-d u childish all'iiir uf that sort
would amount, tu much. Vou are old
enough toucl for yourself now."
In truth, Maj. Oorsehkov had urabl-
tlons thai soured above a mere lieutenant tor his superb daughter. Estherwus
thankful tu escape su easily. Presently
she asked: "Papa—what does it mean
lu drink of the waters of L-et-h-eV"
The major explained.
"Oil," she said, "l see," uud her lung
eyes narrowed cruelly.
Now It might have happened In civil
life that Dudley and Esther Oorsehkov
would never meet again. Imt purtlugs
can only be temporary in the service.
Some years luter Lieut. Dudley walked
Into a San Francisco theater one night
after the curtain had gone up. The
house was dark, and lie kept his eyes on
ihe stage. Al the close of the not he
looked about him, and the first thing
he saw.was a woman whose beauty
startled him. And then he rculizcd that
she wus the one he might have married.
She was in a box with an older woman
whom lie knew,    Dudley wus    seized
with a wonderful dread of   meeting
those wonderful dark-gray eyes. He
would go nt once before he should da
so. Uut as he rose the older woman saw
him, and smiled and beckoned to au
empty chair beside her. 'fheie was
nothing: for it now but to go to the box.
lie was cold with feor of the lowbrowed, black-haired, black-gowned
girl with the mngnlfloont neck uml
She would not huve forgotten hlm.
He knew ihat; and hr doubted if she
would have forgiven. If she hail been
less beautiful he might have felt less
culpable, for such is the nature of mon.
She smiled when they met with iho
regally Indlfferenf smile that luul been
hers even in childhood.
"Oh, I knew Mr. Dudley years ago!"
she said. "I was a little -*flrl mid was
very fond or him because he used to buy
me sutler's store candy uud ribbons."
If that was her view of the past, Dudley resented it. A man does aiot want
a beautiful girl to triMit him as an old
friend of infancy.
"You might, suppose, Mrs. Graves,"
he lold the other woman, "that she
had been q toddling child and I a crusty
bachelor in whose pocket* she felt for
sweetmeats." i
Thon Esther questioned him in her
deep, sweet voice. "How long-shall you
stop here?" "       I
"for a fortnight possibly." I
"Where are ynu stationed now?" She
knew well enough.
"At Apache. Su you ran imagine whnt
n treat civilization Is to me Howdoes
it happen that I llnd you here?"
"We are stationed ut the Presidio.
Ymi must come losee us."
"I will," he answered, ire would
have done any thin/,' those red lips might
ask him to do, The receding tide of his
love fur her bud swept back with a
mighty force, *-   ., m ..,.,. _
"Uow beautiful yuu are, Esther," he
ad. after u iiiutueut.
"t always was."
"You have uu inure- false ■tuudesU-
ian of yore."
"Why'should I huve? 1 didn't make
yself, so I'm not praising1 my own
indiwurk. And I frunkl) admit Unit

the civilian beside her, whose infatuation was obvious.
"Every man in the post and the city
will hate you wilh 11 deadly haired, If
Miss Uorscihkov happens tu taken fane-,
to vou fur old Mike's Mike," Mrs. Uruves
warned him.
"Even her fancy would be. cheaply
purchased at that eost."
"Perhaps. A woman of her beauty
js not boiiii into the world ouce in a
cycle, certainly."
And Miss (Joiselikov was pleased lu
fancy him. She advertiteed the fact.
She was not one to fearuny means thut
would gain her ends. She threw away
her pride ami came at his call. She for*
gove liim the past anil met him inure
than half way.
Hut Dudley was too much in love to
despise or mistrust lier for this. He applied for a two-months1 leave and spent
every available moment of it with her.
Mrs. Graves, Ln her quality of a school-
chum of his mother's and au uld friend
or .Himself, warned him. "Esther has
done this same thing before. James.
Take core. She is ns beautiful as Cleo-
piltru, and there are many who say she
is as bad—at heart. Make love to her,
if you choose, faesar, but let your wife
bo a woman who is above suspicion."
Dudley never spoke to her again. Anil
he continued his fanatical cult of liis
His leave eame to au end. amdiho wont
back to Apache. He who had been a
light mocker and a philosopher of life,
saw the bottom drop out-of his universe
when he had to go from her. She wrote
to him twice n day, for a time, then
onee a day, then once a week, and finally
the mail orderly handed him a letter
from Estilier thnt. was almost a verba tlm copy of the one he had sent to her
six years before, even to the closing
phrase. "Tn time you will drimk of the.
waters of Lethe and' will forget me as
utterly as T deserve to be forgotten."
A light of memory broke, harsh and
crude, through the rosy clouds that bod
enwrapped htm. But he said to him
self that justice had been meted out to
him, stern and untempered. Aud lie
made no appeal.
Something mure than a twelvemonth
later, Esther Oorsehkov sat nt dinner
beside the man whom she was then
playing fast and louse, who would not
be warned by the fate of the many
whose bodies were strewn upou the
shores where this Cythero had trod.
"You promised, you know," he said
to her, "that you would answer my question to-night."
"What question?"
"Dun't banter, please, I am in
"You nppear to be. And everybody can see it, too. Uo on uml eat,
and look as though you were discussing
tlie dynamite gun or something."
"1 will do whatever you chouse, if yuu
will tell me if yuu will murry me."
"Oh! Is thut whut you mean'.' I
couldn't remember whether it wus you
or Mr. Clayton who had asked me. Maybe it was both of you. llut 1 can't see
why you should bother about that sort
uf thing at dinner. Why dun't you wait
until lhe donee. It would be so much
better form. Fancy saying 'no' to a
a man nnd then puttingu piece of harmless little lamb in one's mouth."
"Arc you going to say 'no'?"
"Gracious I but we are insistent. How
should 1 know what 1 am going to sny?
(Jo on and eat, and stop hanging on my
words, or I won't nnswer you at ull. It
is so fearfully conspicuous,"
Even in his suspense, Uie mnn could
not but return. "Whence thin now-
found dislike tu being conspicuous?"
Miss Oorsehkov smiled slowly and
Started to nuswer, but a voice from
across the table stopped her.
"What i.s it, ('apt. Lawrence'.1" she
"Hove you heard of Lieut. Dudley's
"Nu.   Is he dend?"
"He (lied at Apache a weok ngu."
"I'm so sorry; but, frankly. I don't

disliked her. ami she saw the purpose uf
his announcement     Her  ilotul* white
shin could turn no whiter, and bor Smiling red lips were painted.
"CokMicnrted devil," tho coptntn muttered, ns she turned bnck tu tlie man at
her side.
"So you want me to mnrry you? I
will, ltut 1 want you to understand
why. It in becnuse 1 have just beeu
told that the only man I huve ever loved
or ever will love is dead. Do you want

"Even knowing that—ves."
"Very well."
She spoke across the table again.

late shorthand writer was once ou professional business in Liverpool and staid
iu tho same hotel as (Unities Mathews,
tbe actor. Tho latter had appeared in
"My Awful Dad," and after tho performance ho strolled into the smoking
room. Having heard of Mr. Reod'a ox-
pertnesa as a note taker, Mathews challenged tliu reporter to jot down certain
passnges from the chnrncter of Pull iu
Richard BrlnBley Sheridan's "Critic.'1
Rend expressed his willingness to
have a try. Mathews, who waa one of
tbo best "patter" speakers on Iho stage,
began to gabble tbe lines with startling'
rapidity, ami the other strained every
nerve to follow liim. When the test was
finished. Reed, whose notes, despite
tho terrific speed at which he hnd been
writing, were of neat and eligible outline, merely inserted a vowel murk or
two and banded tbem to an assistant
who wus called Into the room, and who
transcribed the characters with bnt few

"Why am   I   mil   otworkl" rapeatod a
bright young girl whon asbod thai question—"WhyJ HeeuuKo my omployor's

"Why do you l-other your head over

"Oh, yes. papa Is rich, and lie's awfully
good, too, but I'd rather earn my own
monoy thau ho always asking hltn for it-
It's sn—so—well. UkO bogging, you know,
even If he Is vour ful lur!"
Now, who Is iu ihe wrong? Should Iho
father Bllpply his daughter With stated
sums of spending monoy at stated times
and so relievo her of thu necessity of "bogging," or, on the other hand, of keeping
a girl who needs workout of a position?
Or Is it wrong to encourage women to regard themselves as a leisure oIobs, to bo
supported by their men folk?
A remedy might hu suggested thnt
would covor the caso—lot tho rich man's
daughters he trained aa llnanelers or business women and then set them up In business for themselves, just as is done with
the sons, so lhat they may furnish employment to their poorer sisters instead of taking it from them. How would that do?—

After they havo beooino "bono dry" put
the shirts, collars and cuffs through a
wheat starch made hy pouring foaming
hot water over a smooth batter obtained
by stirring wheat flour and cold water together until it Is tho consistency of thin

for two hours and then strained through
a cheesecloth. Add to each quart of hulling starch u tenspoonful of whlto wax,

use. Tho secret of a good, Binooth finish
to stiff starched clothes is in the methods
of starching. This must be carefully done.
Spread u shirt bosom over a clean board,
ami with a piece or thin cloth rub llio
starch into tho bosom with strong, firm
strokes. There should not bo a wrinkle

Smooth Foreheads Arc Hiire.
A pretty forehead Is a possession to
value, as much of the character of thn faco
depends upon it. Any forehead must and
can bo freo from irregularities and wrinkles to bo attractive, Care should he taken
in youth to avoid tho straight long lines
on tiie forehead which are brought on by
elevating tho eyebrows. Look at the middle aged faces you meet each day and mark
tho prevalence of those lines juBt over tho
temples, ln nine cases out of ten the remainder of thc face will he smooth and
youthful, Imt  those lilies  tell  tho  tale of
age. This lifting of the eyebrows Is a
Eousolcss trick, which is thought to give
expression to the face. It is ou a level
With the maity other so called tricks of expression, really nothing more than contortions of the fnalal muscles. It is rare to
llnd a woman who can carry on a conversation  with nu  even   countenance and
without nods and wags of tlie bead.

Cure of
Salt Rheum.
The permanent cure after permanent cure that is being published

Blood Bitters far above all other
remedies in the estimation of the

Even the seveiest and most chronic diseases that other remedies
fail to relieve yield to the blood

Salt Rheum or Eczema—that
most stubborn of skin diseases,
which causes such torture and is so
difficult to cure with ordinary remedies—cannot withstand B.B. B.'s
healing, soothing power.
The case of Mrs. Jas. Sanderson,
Emerson, Man., shows how effective B.B.B. is in curing Salt Rheum
at its worst, and curing it to stay
Tliis is what she wrote:
" Burdock Blood Bitters cured me of a
