Slantlerton, July 3, 1900.—My Dear
Mutt: You muat excuse this long sileuc-,
aa it has been enforced. Aa you have
learned ere tliis, I and several other
Cranhrook boys were attached to 11
squadron, which was to go to the mouth
of the Kuti river and march overland
from there through Amatorge land to
Koomati Poort and blow up a very important railway bridge there.
Well, we sailed up all right enough,
but whon we got tbere we fuund that thc
Hoe s had got wind of this expedition
and had concentrated in large numbers
at the bridge add had prepared au ambush some 30 miles away for us; consequently we sailed back once more tp
Durban. Then we disembarked and entrained for Lower Ingelo; wc got there
Saturday morning, June 9, and Sunday
morning we ate on the much for En-
rowe, through Zululand. We arrived
there and remained one day, when we
got orders to march back again; thia we
accomplished in three days, camping the
first night at lower Tugela, the next at
Stanger, and Durban the next. This
march through Natal was a very nice
one, and as Natal ia tbe fruit country of
South Africa and the people generous,
we had a splendid time.
We arrived in Durban Friday evening
June 15, and entrained tbe next morning for Newcastle, arriving there on the
17th. The last four bights ol this trip
we were without blankets; one night it
ratned and the other nights the mercury
was be row freezing; this was entirely the
fault of our far-famed colonel, who
thought the tough men from the west
could stand ibis; of Marie, be had his
blankets and tent. As a result of tbis
unnecessary exposure abont 20 men were
left in the hospitals, oue of whom—Cot-
terill, of Nelson—has since died; Mnjor
Laurie was also left bellin 1.
We started on the march from Newcastle to join the 3d mounted brigade of
Mullet's army under Lord Dundonald.
The first night we camped at Ingogo,
at the toot of Majttba hii': the next day
1 was knocked out with rheumatism and
fever—had a temperature of 104 8; fell
oil' my horse twice that morning but
managed lo ride into Charleston; there I
got intoaspringleea transport wagon (we
had no ambulance—another oversight on
the part of our gall.nt C O.); from
Charleston we marched to Zand Spruit
for the night, passing through Volskurat
ou the way; here we joined the 3d brigade and Buller's army; our comrades
are the South African Light Horse, Thor-
neycroft's Mounted Infantry and the
Mounted Corps of the King'-) Royal Rifles. Here we left three of our members
in hospital, including Major Liurie; the
next day we marched to Parde Kop. On
the way our transport had to halt to let
the main transport pass; I counted 49
wagons with 4 yoke ot oxen on -.ach
From Parde Kop we marched to San
ileeton. recently occupied by the Boers
—so recent! y in fact that their rear guard
were just leaving town as our advance
entered, ami three of our outpost were
shot that evening. Here the army remained iniilcr canvas for seven days. I
went into hospital, the 18th field hospital, Indian; we received splendid attention here, nnd had several visits from
I/ml Dundonald, with whom I had the
pleasure of having a conversation; he
asked me many questions concerning

Ou our way from Durban to Newcastle
wc passed many places that recalled the
beginning of the war vividly before our
minds. Pietermartzburg, Ladysmith,
Colenso, Hlandsgate, Nicholson's Nek,
Gleneve Junction and Duudee, not to
forget Newcastle. Then on the march
we passed through Lalug'a Nek and at
the base of historical Majuha hill and
lugog'a heights.

The agent at Crow's Nest, a small

into trouble, says the Mrl.eod Gazette,
It appears that some little lime ago a 1
car loaded wtth silverware went over a
bridge and the agent and some other
parties are accused of mnking nwny with
some of the goods,
The Herald is glad that the Gazette
has published the above news item, as it
gives this paper an opportunity lo produce some facta that otherwise might not
be given credence by an unsuspecting
public, Tbe carload of silverware mentioned by the Gazette was consigned to
G, H. Gilpin's wholesale silverware department in Cranhrook; the fact that silverware is required to supply the needs
of Cranbrookers is confirmatory evidence
of the wealth, refinement and luxurious
tastes of our citizens, as well as the immense quantities of merchandise required to supply their needs; just as another verification of this latter fact, it
might be mentioned that the Fort Steele
Mercantaile Company has en route a
carload of toothpicks for the Cranbrook
bote); Bremner & Sons a carload of table
napkins for the Hotel Manitoba; Reid &
Co. a carload of bar napkins for the
Cosmopolitan, while George Wentworth

The Entire Output of the Slocan Lake Country for
This Year Hore Than Doubled by Our
Three nines in One Month
The shipments from Slocan Lake points from January I to July 28, according
to a report in the Nelson Economist of recent date, were 2457 tons of ore and concentrates; this from 12 mines and five camps. The shipments from Ganbrook and
Moyie for the MONTH OF JULY were: From the St. Eugene, 2400 tons of concentrates, value, $70 per ton, and from the North Star and Sullivan, at Kimberley,
2820 tons, value (estimated) $45 per ton, giving a total shipment from two camps
and three mines of 5220 TONS for the month of July,.against 2457 tons from Slocan
points during six months, giving a total valuation of $291,900 for the month of July,
or nearly one-fourth of the output of the old Coeur d'Alene district for the same time,
with its 20 dividend paying mines.
The output of the three mines above mentioned will be at least doubled before
the end of the present year, barring, only, possible, but improbable large slumps in the
value of silver and lead.
Is not this district, surrounding Cranbrook, worthy of your investigation, Mr-
Capitalist ?    There are still many good "prospects" In it awaiting the help of capital.
But One Sajs Smelter-nan Braden Talking of tbe St. Eugene Nine.
Mining Men   Who   View   These
Mines Arc Astounded by
What They S«,
With the single exception of the Silver King In Utah, U S , the St. Eugene
is the greatest silver-lead producing
mine on this continent," said K. B
Braden, Ihe welMtuown manager of Ihe
United Stales assay office at Helena,
Molilalia, smelter man, and ore purchaser for the American Smelling and He-
fining Company, one of the largest on
earih; in this opinion Expert Gunn,
connected with tbe same company, coincided.
The St. Kugenc concentrates are ao
remarkably puie that the Guggenheim-
ers purchase them largely to use in connection with the reduction of the veiy
base, low grade ores fiom the great mine*
they owu in South America.
An opinion of this kind, coming from
such a source—especially when there are
two other mines almost as great near by
—entitles a country to the attention of
mining investors. Tnere are pcorea of
good prospects near by. with transportation convenient, awaiting the help of
capital. Tbe vicinity of shipping mines
is the place to look for more.

The pioneer lumbermen of Cranbrook,
the Leitch Brothers, will bave another
mill cutting lumber hefore the week Is
closed, if ii ts not doing ao already. It
ia located about five miles south of Cranbrook ou the railroad, and will cut from
12,000 to 15,000 feet daily, making this
company's dally output from 40,000 to
50,000 feet daily.
This mill is the original mill of the
Cranbrook Lumber Co., reconstructed
since the fire. Sidetracks have been
built to tbe mill, and every convenience
possible for facilitating work supplied.

Heartsick and despondent was the lady
of the manor whett she gazed upon tbe

was immediately struck witb an idea so
forceful as to cause her lo stagger; but
she quickly pulled herself together and
flew, as It were, Into her chalet; quickly
she reappeared with soap and water and

rubbed and scrubbed until their lily-

At the time advertised two coaches,
well filled with ladies and gentlemen
went (0 Moyie for a day's outing. As
previously announced, wilh the exception of the hotels, all the leading business houses in town were closed for tbe
day, and many of their employes attended the picnic.
Although n reception of lhe visitors
and an address of welcome hid been
planned by ihe Oid Feilows of Moyie,
the excursionists scattered as soon as
tbey alighted from the train, making
frantic rushes for row-boats, fishing resorts, etc. In the afternoon, however,
many gathered at the platform bnilt oa
the bank of the lake for dancing, and to
tbe splendid music of the Moyie orchestra tripped the light fantastic until
Visited Mines aad Mill.
Many took advantage of what waa the
first oppsrlunity in their lives to see a
mine, snd through the courtesy of Manager Cronin and his affable assistants,
made a trip through the workings of the
great properties of the St. Eugene company—mines, of the kind unequalled in
British Columbia.
To many the workings of tbe concentrator was a revelation, and Supt.
King proved a cheerful guide, explaining so far as it was possible for tbe mind
untutored in the processes of ore reduction to undertiand, the manner in whu h
the ores from the mines are concentrated
and prepared for their final reduction.
All who met Mr. King realized that he Is
not only a master of his profession but a
genial gentleman as well. Under his
mmagemeut the 200 ton concentrator ia
doing mare and better work than any
other mill of the same capacity at any
mine—and this is not his aayjforheis
quite modest in that respect, and unai-
suming, Jbtit Ihe testimony of others
competent to give an opinion.
Wanted to Exc-hsofe.
One of Vhe most frequently-heard remarks from the visitors was: ' 1 with
we could Irade part of our prairie for 0
piece of this lake"—a wish that Ihe
Moyie people endorsed.
Mnny were surprised to see in Moyie a
substantial us well as a flourist ing little
town; quite a few had the idea that they
were going to a little shack or log cabin
settlement, but were very happily surprised There are many nice little homes
there, and numerous substantial hotels
and business huildings. Some day Moyie
will be incorporated, the streets graded,
and will present a very handsome appearance.
In the evening Ihere waa a ball at the
Kast Kootenay hotel, for which a few remained over, but the larger number were
tired enough when night came to return
home, hoping to enjoy another trip on
some future occasion.
Conductor Tom Cavin and crew were
in charge of the train, and proved themselves the right people for an excursion
train—courteous and efficient.

I hear 1 lit- merry patter of a score of youth
rui feet,
I see the stern old masters, kind for all their
stat-ly ways:
Thoy brightened though sometimes they
clouded o'er my boyhood days;
And. grateful. I would weave a wreath and
place it when- lhey lie
With folded hands to-day, beneath the gentle, starlit sky.
I lu-ar tin* merry laughter of ihe girls wf
uaed to swing
Beneath tho hoary beach that eaat Its shadow o'er tbo Hiirlng:
Hut from among thom ull therecomee from
oul tin- fur away
A sweet and lovllljr face Upon the olden aluie
The pencil of my memory brings out tvery
graceful llm*.
i'niil there at anils before my gaae a tlgur-a
half divine:
And neither sponge nor moistened hand,
wilh mischief iiii elate,
ran rub 11 single lineament from off my
treasured slulo.
Tbo spiders shall not spin again their nimy
silver thrall
Across tbo old state resting long against tin*
garret's wall*
I'll set it in tho sunshine Mite a queen in
vestments fine,
Por it whispers of a boyhood whleh to-day
seems imlf divine.

Story of a Slave.
To be bound hand and foot for years
by the chains of disease is the woiat
form of slavery. George D. Williams, of
Manchester, Mich., says: ''My wife has
been so helpless for five years ihat sbe
could not turn ovtr ill bid alone. After
using two bottles of Klectrlc Billers she
is wonderfully improved and able to do
her own work." This supreme remedy
for female diseases quickly cures nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy,
headache, backache, fainting and dizzy
spells. It is a godsend to weak, sickly
and run down people. Cure guaranteed.
