Law tirade Ores Profitable.
That low grade ores can be treated at
a profit has been demonstrated at head
City, South Dakota, where a thousand
Stamps are dropping ou oie that yield;
less than three dollais a ion, says the
Nelsou Tribuue. This has been going
on for years, aud the great Homestake
Mining company with a capital ol $31,-
000,000, has paid over J10,000,000 in
dividends, For ten years alter llle discovery of ure in the mines at Lead City,
every pound of mining supplies had to
be hauled hundreds of miles by ox mid
mule teams, aud fuel ami water were
both procured at greal expense These
mines and mills have always been operated by white labor. At Metcur, Utah,
is another low grade ore proposition
which is being worked by a company
with $5,uoo.ouo of share capital. It has
paid $375,000 in dividends this yeai, Up
in Alaska is the lowest grade proposition
on earth. Last year the Treadwell com-
pony crushed 457,802 tons of ure that
yielded $1 88 a ton, yet the company
made a net profit of $352,550, and paid a
dividend of $300,000 on a share capital
of $5.1100,000. These are three instances
where gold ore that is lower grade than
any of the gold-copper ores of llritish
Columbia is paying good dividends on
large capitalization. If such results can
be obtained in another country, why not
iu llritish Columbia? It is only a ques-
llan of lime, patience, money and brains.
Tbe best results were not obtained iu
South Dakota ur iu Utah or iu Alaska at
the first. Small mills had to be increased lo large ones, tbe best appliances
nnd nielli-"0 for mining had to be
adopted; the capital Inn1 lo be invested.
Small smelters will have to give way to
large ones; the latest machinery for
cheap mining will have tu be procured;
ami the capital stock of the companies
wilt have to be increased if like results
are to be obtained from working th
ores of the Boundary. Smelters that are
now smelting 500 tons per dav will have
to be quadrupled in size; machinery will
have to take the place of men iu milling;
and certificates of stuck will have to represent cash iuveslmeuts. When this is
done, the low grade ores of the Boundary
will be worked at su good a profit that
shares iu well managed miuJug nnd
smelting companies like those operating
at Grand Forks and Phoenix and Greenwood will be sought fur as gilt edge
securities instead of lor speculation.
Tbe Marysvllle Smeller.
Nelson Tribuue: K. I). Saunders, of
Spokane, who is interested in Ihe Marysville smeller project, was in Nelson yesterday ou his way to Marysville. He
says the prumoters of the scheme intend
to operate a refinery as well as a smelter,
ami further that the company has no
connection with the United States Smelter trust. Tbe first object of the promoters of the smelter is to furnish an
economic method for marketing the
product of the Sullivan group of mines
The nature of this ore is such that a flux
is desirable in its treatment, and to this
extent the smeller in iis initial stages
will he a customs smelter, purchasing
sufficient ores in the district for tbe
proper fluxing. It is proposed to ship
the silver from the refinery to New Yoik
but in respect to the lead it is not yet
determined whether it will be sent to
the London market or to Hung Kong.

Grand Forks, Nov, 6 —A ghastly mishap befell Charles Smith, an employe
iu ibe Grauby smelter 011 Sunday last
Ilis work at the smelter consisted in
dragging away the pota of molten slag
ami matter from the furnace, and it was
while returning with an empty oue thut
he met with disaster. Another employe
was taking out a pot of molltn slag ns
Smith was coming iu. The men passed
close beside one another, when somehow
or other they collided. Smith was
thrown off his footing, and to the horror
of ihe few bystanders fell into tlie si/
'Hug mass.
Only for a few seconds did he lie
there, for willing bands dragged him
out, but in those few seconds he was
terrible burned. He screamed wiih
agony, hut fortunately, perhaps, immediately became unconscious.
Smith was sent at once to tbe hospital
where his injuries were attended to by
Dr. Nortbrup. It ia possible that lie
may recover hut his condition is serious.

Miss Lund Highly Praised.
Miss Lund, who is now living in Cranbrook with her brother, Mr. Peter Lund,
is a graduate of ihe University School of
music at Ann Aaboi, Mich. Just before
she left there she gave a concert that
was given high praise hy the Daily Argus of that city as follows:
The vocal recital given hy Miss Sara
Lund of Spokane, Wash., at the School
of Music last evening proved to he »
grand success In every way. The program was probably the most difficult of
the series, however the rendition it received could not at any time be erilt-
clzed "Whither," by Schubert, and
"Kreuliugsiiact" of Schumann were
both warmly received as was also the
"Sappische Ode" from Brahms. Alt of
the above named showed the singer's
xcellent idea of expression. There is
also an originality about ber interpretation which was most noticeable. The
aria, "He was Despised," from Handel's
"Messiah," was given with organ accompaniment. This ditlicult aria was
given au excellent singing. Tbe ure
rotunda voice is one ot the strong features of her work, especially in the low
register. "Sing Me to Rest," by Allit-
sott, with violin obligato, was oue of tbe
most interesting numbers. Tbe violin
was effectively played by Mr. Long, who
alsu played a solo in his usual pleasing
manner. ''Lord of Agens," by Holt
was well received. Dudley Buck's "Sun
sel" and "A Wilderness Lullaby," by L.
L. Renwick, received tbe loudest applause of any ol tbe numbers on tbe pro
gram. "I Love and tbe World is Mine"
was the final number, which she sung in
a grand style. Miss Lund possesses a
contralto voice of unusual sweetness.   It
rich in tone and quality, flexible and
powerful. Her work in every detail predicted an artist of tbe first ranks. She
is a thorough musician, being besides a
singer, a pianist uf exceptionable ability.
That she is admired by Ann Arbor's
music lovers was evident from the beautiful flowers she received. Wherever
she goes she will reflect much credit ou
her teacher, Mr. Howlaud, and the University School of Music. Both pupil
ami teacher are to be heartily congratulated. _	
C. V. Mill to Take 1 Vacation.
C. P. Hill wsb in town Monday for the
purpose of looking after some iron properties on Baker mountain. Mr. Hill is
the Iron pioneer of this section, and it
was his claims at Kitchener thnt were
taken by President Shaughnesfy and
others of the C. P. R , and upon which
Mr. Hill took out a neat little stake.
"I am going to my old home iu Delaware for the winter," said Mr, Hill, "I
have not been there for 17 years, and
wl.eu I left I told my father that 1 would
not return until I could show him 1
credit letter for $50,000 and shake haildi
as a 321I degree Mason. After the iSth
of this month I will be ready to start,
and naturally I look ahead to the visit
with pleasant anticipations."
This Town Hill be so Situated When
Changes are Made
The Change Will Mean a Great
Saving in Mileage to the
C P. R
There is no longer any question about
the intention of the C. P. K. taking advantage ot the roule offered by the St.
Marys valley for a short cut to the Pacific coast by way of the Crows Nest Pas*
road. The fact that Mr. Lumsden, chief
engineer iu the field work, Iihs beeu sur-
veying a route from Marysville up the
valley this fall, shows Hut the company
is seriously considering this change. In
accordance with Ibis idea, tlie Toioulo
Globe says: "It is believed 111 British
Columbia that all 1 Uml.is will noun be removed us to the possibility of building a
railway connection between Ibe western
terminus of the Crows Nest line and
Hope, ou the main tine uf the Canadian
Pacific railway, Hon. I-.dgar Dewduey
who was appointed lo make a survey of
ihe route for the provincial government
has completed his woik much earlier
ib.iti was anticipated, which is regarded
as n sign that a feasible route has been
discovered. The mum line ol tlie Caua-
dinn Pacific now makes a long northern
detour, which will be cut off il the contemplated link is construcled, The attractions of Until!, the great glacier, aud
other features on the present main line
will insure its popularity for tourist
travel, but the shorter and more level
mute through the Crows Nest Pass will
be the more advantageous for freight
and commercial passenger business."
This means that the C. P. R. will
abandon ihe northern route for une more
feasible to the south. , Hy building from
Marysville to Pilot Bay, there would be
only three miles of water tu the Balfour
branch that runs into Nelsou. This
hinge would cut off the big sweep
southward to Kootenay Landing for
through freight and fa seuger traffic,
which would mean a big saving iu time
and uioney. It would also place Cranbrook on the main line of lhc C. P. R.
and make it tbe great central point of
this district. Such a move would mean
wonderful prosperity for this town, and
increased prosperity for tbis part of tbe
Next year promises to be a hummer in
railway building in South But Kooienay.

to Join In 11 5th of November row, and
7011 know that women students are allowed neither boat races nur bump
Tbe professor answered that she was
evading the question at Issue, lie said
thut Indies usually do so, uml Sibyl
Weill home with previsions uf university llle a IIHle less blight Nillll tbey llllll
been before.  Hut she wns none ibe lest
detennlucd to go up und to devote the
next period ut her life to the studies
which weru Illustrated hy thu professor,
• •••«# f
Three years later the professor sat
tn -Sibyl's room at Browning— It was a
cbnnnlug little mom, looking OU the
terraco—and bo congrntutnted her. Was
she not the most famous person of the
wcok? Had not every morning paper
t loading article in praise of woman as
personified in Sibyl f     all tbe evening
papers portraits of her, portraits whose
only point of similarity was their un-
likeness to Sibyl? Editors were asking
her for an article on the education of
women nt universities, and publishers
Would have her edit 11 new scries of
•astern writers fur ladies' schools.
The professor looked at her with admiration. Shu was the most brilliant
pupil given to hint fur many u day, and
her suggestions in the way of emendation were marvelous. Now, now nt last,
the professor saw his visions of lung
years taking upon themselves a semblance of reality; they Bhouid become
real in the near future. Thut great
work of his on the tosUlotlcs of tho
Aciidlfins might now be accomplished.
The materials for It were complete,
He had spent on them all liis leisure
time since bis appointment us Plnntag-
enet professor. Hut ns for tbe writing
of the book, from Unit lie Blirank. Some
younger uuni must collaborate, use tli-t
professor's stores, undertake the labof
of writing nml add io so much knowledge the enthusiasm of youth, For
some time he hud walled until The fitting fersou should uppeur umonu bit
men. Tho student, long - M ted, was
come at last, but unfortunately" from
among tho women. Nu, nothing could
be 1111 tort ii nn te if only the person wa***
found. And Sibyl was delightful to
work with.
"We shall heal the Germans now,
and ihnl on their uwu ground," said
the professor Jauntily. "It Is u revenge
fur the losses oi many years."
Sibyl looked at btut in perplexity, for
she fulled to see tbe connection. The
professor explained ai full leugtb, aud
Sibyl listened. -You will come up
again, of course, fur a few years." he
said, "aud we will set to work us soon
as possible. Your name will appear
with mine ou the title page.   You will
have a reputation for scholarship that
will gu beyond Berlin, It Is fortunate
that your name Latinizes so well. Perhaps 1 do not kuovv—your Latin style
is realty quite fair for oue so young.
Perhaps wo might eveu bring It out lu
two versions, a Latin and au English.
This would not add appreciably tu the
number uf years we are tu devote to
the work uml might repay us nobly.
There are coutluental scholars who are
not altogether familiar with English."
Sibyl said nothing, she was thoughtfully looking out over the geraniums,
ami the professor grew uneasy.
'•I assure you thnt you are perfectly
qualified Tor (he wurk, abstruse and
onerous us It Is," he said, "uml yuu are
ihe ouly pupil I ever had uf whuui 1
could say as much."
"You lire very Haltering," answered
the must distinguished graduate uf thu
year, "mid 1 uin 11 fluid yuu rate my
powers luo highly." The piufessor eagerly Intimated by gesture that sbo
was mistaken, iu was su breathless
with apprehension that he would nut
Interrupt by words. "1 am so sorry
thai I shall nut he able tu collaborate
lu tho work. Yuu du U10 a great honor
lu asking me. Hut, yuu see, l am want,
ed at home."
Then the Plnntageuet professor scoffed.
"At home!" snld he. "Why. anybody
can attend tu your dudes ut home. But
as fur what I am suggesting to you,
there Is not one man In 20 years that Is
capable of doing It. As for women"—
Words failed the professor here. "You
will be known as n scholar tu ull tlie
scholars of Europe. l>u you under-
Btuud? You will be regarded as an authority for many years to come. And
think of the honor you will gain for
your college nnd for your sex," Tho
professor spoke the words without hesitation. No Ihought of nu earlier coiv
versa tion wllh Sibyl hud remained in
his mind, which Indeed wns crowded
wlili more Important things.
"It is n pity," she answered placidly,
"but, yuu see, my people really want
1110, My mother likes to have somebody with her when she is making
calls, mid my sisters will not be out of
tbe schoolroom for Borne years. Then
1 write my father's business letters for
him and help to teach the children nnd
make their frocks. I have n good deal
of taste lu dressmaking. An excellent
modiste has tuild so. I had lessons
from her, though of course 1 know ft
Is the fashion tu suppose that n woman
who cures for study must he absolutely
useless iu domestic nHairs."
The professor broke out in anger.
"Anybody can make flocks," he cried.
"No, Indeed, you are mistaken," sbo
answered. "It Is a most difficult business to make them nicely. That Is why
they nre expensive."
"But do you not see," said the professor again, "what an opportunity you
will lose If you full to adopt my suggestion',*' You are losing your chance of
fame. Yuu leave undone 11 great work
of incalculable benefit tu seliolnrs. And
for me—I see 110 hope of finding another to take your place."
"I am very sorry," answered his pn*
pll, "but Indeed my parents want me
very much ut home. And 1 feel that my
place Is there. 1 shall not be able to
come buck next term."
•       ••••••
There was again a debate at tbe Union, nnd again the professor dropped in.
The proposer was speuklng. He was a
y.uiiig gentleman of much eloquence,
aud he curried Ida audience with him.
"Let us resist to the death," he snld,
"any attempt to encourage further tbe
su called higher education of women In
this university. Woman wus made for
(he home. There she stands on a pedestal. Shall we assist her to descend from
that pedestal aud be in Ire herself with
Joining In Use struggles of masculine
life'/" The uiidlenee raised a storm of
uppluuse. The piufessor groaned and
went out.—Ladles' Pictorial,

Tlie game of chess differs In the various countries of the world. Thus, In
the Hindoo game, four distinct armies
ure employed, each with their king,
each corps counting muting Its lighters

but cannot be Blaln. The Chinese gumo
uf chess, which boasts uf the title of
Choke-Choc-koilg-kl (Ihe play of the science of war), hns a river running
through the ceil ler of the board, which
their elephants, equivalent to our bish
ops, cannot cross, mid there is 11 fort
Which their kings cniinut puss.
Under tbe Sanskrit name of chain-
rmign a game essentially the smue us
modem chess wus played lu iMndusiun
nearly 5,000 years ago. From Hindustan the game Is said to huvu been
carried to Persia ami tlicnce to Arabia.
The Arabs Introduced it into Spain and
the rest of western Europe during thu
eighth century, where it became the
principal pastime nbout the year UKMJ,

Improving On Nature
Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makes
up for -ieficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting
garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling at less than double our price.
