As it wtv: when we were children, so it
was when we were young men, and is

Close-fisted economy, or a realization of
the strength ofa ten being's displeasure

Rossland, B. C , Dec. 3.—The shipments on Saturday night passed the

there slill remains Tour weeks and two
days, during that period there should lie
shipped at least 50,000 tons, making the
total for the year of about 130,000 to: l,
which, it is thought, will easily be about
the quantity shipped from this camp for
the year. There were eight shippers

The St. -Kugene Contnct.
Nelson Miner; The largest deal
ever arranged in British Columbia has
been consumated by the St. Kugeue
Consolidated Miuing Company.of Moyie
by which the Messrs. Guggenheim ik
Sons, tbe smelter people of AotOgsgSSta
Chili, contract to purchase (1,000,000 of
reduced wet silver-lead ore per year
from the Movie mines.
The deal is of great importance, not
only on account of its size, but owing to
the fact that the desire of lhe Chill
smellers to secure tbe wet silver-lead
ores of Kootenay for fluxing purposes
may cause a It-ocm iu those ores.
In the past three mouths. $150,000 of
this ore has been shipped ila lhe C. P.
R. to Vancouver, and by steamer to San
Francisco, where it Is transferred into
other steamers for Chili, Al lhe present
time, a gang of men aie engaged in
sacking 1,600 tons ofthe Moyie ore for
shipment, but there is some delay caused
by the famine in sacks now prevalent
there- Tbe ore will run in its reduced
state about $50 a ton Next week
another shipment of $150.0x1 worth of
ore will take plicc. In fact the demand
is only limited by the supply, ami the
possibility of getting tbe ore forward.

Soulh Kast Kootenny stands today
belter thuu she has ever stood. Those
who have invested thousands iu miniug
propositions have -seen enough to know
thnt their judgment was right, nnd that
the future of the district, and the pros-
perlly of lhe people, depends ouly upon
i-apilal to develope the wonderful resources of this section.
The Ihree great properties of lhe district, the Norlh Star, the St. Kugene
and lhe Sullivan, are best evidences of
what is to follow. Theie will be others,
as fust as t lie development brings tbem
forth. The future of lhe district is assured, and in a few years it will stnnd In
the front rank as n rich producing tec
And, with the mineral development
there v ill be a corresponding increase in
the commerce ol the district, which will
he an increased population, larger towns,
and greater prosperity on every hand.
The man who lives iu South Kast Kootenay today, is fortunate indeed. He is
located in a territory thnt is ouly in its
first stages ol development, and yet
where enough bas been done, lo convince the most skeptical thai tbe future
is not a guess hut a glorious fact. Where
ran a young mun go and find better opportunities than are presented In this
portlou of British Columbia. Where
will he find richer reward for industry,
integrity anil intelligent application.
Here they haveelhow roon, Here, they
have opportunity. Here, even a little
cupital cun accomplish much. Here,
manhood is recognized, and backbone
stands at a premium, Here, everything
is on a rising market and investments
nre profitable, Here, progress is tbe
slogan, and dry rot is unknown, It is
not Bliauge lhat the eyes of the east are
turned toward this portion of British
Columbia Por the capitalist, tbe mer*
t-liant, the laborer, South Kast Kooleiiay furnishes an attractive field. As

The Lethbridge News is now 15 years
old, ami during all thnt time the paper
lias been lhe property of K. T. Saundets.
That is a long time to contrul a paper iu
a western country, and if the recording
angel has kept a close account of the
good deeds done  by  lhat   paper for the
people and the community of Lethbridge,
the credit side nf Mr. Suuiider's account
Bhould be sufficient to warrant a fiee
pnss to eternal joys. If the residents dT
that town will go back over the history
of those yenrs, they will find that the
paper always stood for progress and the
hest interests of the town. In all probability there is not nu individual there,
who bus not been placed under obligations to the News at one time or anoth-

that would nsrist in their business, some
show of sympathy In lime of sorrow,
some evidence of friendship and kindly
Interest, It may be asked, "how do we
know this?"' We know it because the
history of every weekly paper, in this
respect, is about Lhe same. They stand
week in and week out, always icady to
assist and help, in business, in personal
ambition, and iu promoting the welfare
of the community. Tbey may receive
llieir rewatil. As a rule, lhey do. Yet.

"Sly life for some yenrs was one of

causo, I know not what exactly, I
became so aflllctod with uterine trouble, thut I wns obliged to undorgo

trouble wus removed, and a terrible
weakness und miserable, nervous condition ensued, which tbe physician
told me I would never get clear of,

tbe samo result—no betterment of
my condition. Tho pains finally attacked my back nnd kidneys. My

medical men were unable to oure mo,
At last in desperation I made up my
mind to try them, but really without any fulth in the result. To my
grent surprise 1 obtained some benefit from the Ilrst box. I then bought
six boxes more, which I took according to directions, and am happy to
say was rnised up by them from u
