With   ihe   new  year,   business   bus
brightened   up considerably   ami  ihe
prospects fur llie coming season are excellent throughout the country, and especially for Kimberley, us already great
attention Ims been drawn toward ibis
locality on account of the regular ore
shipments (luring the past year from the
Nnrlli Star anil Sullivan mines. Outside uf these twu mines little development woik has heen done, consequently
there is 11 large opening lur mining investments. Already a ureat nnuiberol
options have been secured uii properties
in  the  immediate  vicinity of the town,
ii is understood) hy strong development
companies, who me.in business., mid as
soon us the necessary negotiations have
been concluded, operations will commence.
Tributary lo Kimberley is the St.
Marys country, where several compaulcs
have been working extensively. The
Pyramid Mining company is shortly to
resume operations 011 their properties in
this section uud mining will be carried
on to a large extent. Their policy is not
to wait whilst others produce the attraction, but to go ahead anil piepare themselves for the time when transportation
and other features will be facilitated,
when they will be ready for Ihem. This
is surely the hest and nioil straightforward course to take.
Then there is thc Skookumcbuck
country, -which is also tributary to Kimberley, and from which quarter some
magn ficeiit samples of coppet ore have
lately been brought into town. A great
deal of work bas beeu done on the Car*
honate King aud Carbonate Queen situated on tbis creek, where a tuunel 70
feet long has been driven across the lead
at a slight depth in order to discover the
width of Ihe same. Now tbat it has
been ascertained, sinking will be commenced. This part < f the camp will re*

Lust week considerable excitement
was created in tbis section liy tlie report thut the Peml-8 coal mines had
been acquired by Jim Hill, ofthe Great
Northern. The report was hardly credited and later returns show lhat it was
the wild dream of some newspaper correspondent.
Mr. Jiflriy Explains It.
Interviewed over the telephone last
night Mr. Robert Jaffray said tbat there
was nothing in this story. The idea of
a sale ofthe Crows Nest coal lands had
never been cvn mooted.
Queried further as to tbe object of tbe
company's directors' pre ent visit to St.
Paul. Mr. Jaffray staled that Mr. Hill is
willing to take from the Crows Nest
company 40 car loads per day for the
Great Northern's consumption. The
conference Is iu couuectiou with this
It is understood that Mr. Hill will for
(he present take out this amount of coal
over bis C. P. R- connection via the

coal fields.

There was born in Fort Steele, on Dec.

McLeod. a son.
Mr. V. C. Potts was iu town last week,
lie brought with him a few sacks of coal
from the mine he is interested in, in
Southern Alberta. The coal looks fine,
and a sack of it was tented in tbe Ferine
Lumber Co's blacksmith shop at tbe
mill. The smith declared it to be an A 1
smithing coal, equal to auythiug he ever
uf ed. Mr. Potts is at present in Montreal
where it is understood he will make an
effort to float a company to work the
property ou an extensive scale. The
company is kuowu as tbe ''Southern
Alberta Coal and Coke Co."
A few days ago James Wallace gave
promise of becoming a second Sherlock
Holmes, but, alas, cruel fuels when
bi ought to light shattered all his hopes.
"Jim" fouud a mare's nest in connection
with one of our best known firms doing
a general mercantile business. By some
obtuse way or another he got it into his
cranium that lhey were selling liquor,
and spent mauy weary hours watching
their front door, and even followed their
delivery rig up to the mines. When at
last be had evetything "dead to rights,"
be confronted the head of the firm with
his startling evidence. But, alas, instead
of wilting like a rag and admitting his
guilt this terrible wicked storekeeper
only laughed at Jim, but finally iu formed
him that the keg that was troubling him
so much and which he bad seen going
up to the mines in a rig aloug with goods
from their store, was simply part of the
load of goods which goes up to the mines
every day and bad nothing whatever to
do with them, or they with it. He
hasu't yet gotten over the disappointment at the ignominious end of all his
leteclive work, but be should remember
tbat the best laid schemes o' mice and
men gang aft aglee, and that busybodies
are a nuisance. •

Conductors Robert Dalton, of Medicine Hat, and Douglas McNeil, of Calgary, were in town last Sunday aud
Monday. Thc hoys are among the most
popular employes of tbe C. P. R.,«and
they have a host of friends in Cranbrook
who were pleased to meet them. The
object ot tbeir visit was to assist in the

which was done, thus giving Craubrook

W. A. Carlyle, formerly Professor of
Mining at McGill University, then for a
number of years Provincial Mineralogist
of British. Columbia, aud now manager
of the Rio Tinlo mines, in Spain, said iu
one of bis reports that if ever a low-grade
ore could be worked witb-profit, almost
the whole of the Kootenay country could
be mined.
It is claimed that this is just what the
Crow's Nest Pass Railway and the development of the coal fields in the pass render possible, lu. fact, the Boston and
Montreal Company claims to have made
a contract for the treatment of tbe output of tbeir mines at f} 50 per ton during tbe coming Summer. New York,
Boston and Montreal capitalists are interested iu this venture.
The coal deposits of the Crow's Nest
Pass are very extensive, and mines at
Fernie nre being energetically worked
by tbe Crow's N'est Pass Coal Company,
Limited, of Toronto. This company has
all or more than it can do to supply tbe
demniul for coke in the mining regions.
It controls a small kingdom of coal lands
no less than 20o,o<x> acres in extent,
almost all of which contain coal. The
granting of this immense area is attributed to political motives, as the holders
are all friends of the government, and
the question bas been made an issue in
G. McBride of McGill University, wbo
spent the past Summer in ibis country,
in nu nrtical on lhe mineral wealth of
tlie Crow's Nest Past region, says:
"All around the town of Feruie, which
is the chief centre of the coal business
of this region, the country for many
miles is full of coal beds, some twenty
seams varying iu thickness from a mere
sheet to a solid mass of coal thirty feet
high. These seams, if laid one ou top
of the olher, would aggregate a thickness of 150 feet. These great beds extend over an area of many thousand
acres, and the Geological Survey of
Canada estimates tbat if 50 percent, of
this be unworkable there would still be
an accessible body of coal containing
about 10,000,000,000 tons. We get a
faint idea of the magnitude of these
figures when we consider, that, taking
.----00,000,000 tons to be the amount of coal
now consumed tu tbe world each year,
there is enough fuel in tbe Crow's Nest
country to supply tbe entire world for
over 330 years at its present rate of consumption. In the mines alone tbis
would afford employment to every able-
bodied mau in Canada from this time
until the year a,000, to say nothing of
the thousands who would find work iu
its transportation and sale.
"As the coal is easily reached from
the surface and Is present in such
abundance it can be mined with comparatively small expense. Tbe plant
uow in operation is a very convenient
one, and is so arranged that from tbe
lime thc coal is first shoveled into tbe
small cars in tbe mines until it is ready
to be shipped it has never to be touched
with a shovel."
It will thus be seen that the gold and
silver mines of the Kootenay, for which
tbis Immense output is being coked,
need not want for fuel for their smelters.
The output of coal, even at present, Is
over 300,000 tons per year, and is rapidly

It's a simple matter to test the kidneys. You need not
consult ;i ilocior. liy .iskintf yourself three questions, you can
determine whether or not your kidneys are deranged.
l."irst__" Have you backache or weak, lame back ?"
Second—" Do you have difficulty in urinating, or too frequent desire to urinate ?' .
Third—"Are there deposits like brickdust in the urine
after it has stood for 24 hours ? "
In its early stages kidney disease is readily cured by a
few boxes of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, a preparation
which has made Dr. Chase famous throughout the world for
his wonderful cure of diseases of the kidneys. (
If you have kidney disease you can take Dr. Chases Kidney-Liver Pills with perfect confidence that what has proved
an absolute cure in so many thousands of cases will not fail
you. So long as the cells of the kidneys arc not completely
wasted away, as in the last stases of Hright's Disease, Dr.
Chase'e Kidney Liver-Pills will give them new vigor and
strength and absolutely cure kidney disease. One pill a dose,
25 cents a box, at all dealers, or Eomanhon. Bates & Co., lo-

British Columbia lias a few woiiW-Ijc
dailies that use the country weekly press
for news of the interior, and for which
they give no credit whatever. The daily
paper thai makes a practice of such
work is guilty nf u contemptible action
to say the least. The editor of thf
weekly paper, by hard wotk and the es
pendlttire of lime ami monev, secures
the news of his district, and this is quiet*
ly gobbled by papers that don't spend a
rent in that direction. The Nelson

commissioner of labor, it n,
fcurprlse, therefore, t.> manj to know
that the eleventh annual report ofthe
commissioner of labor coutains in tiib-
ulated form, reduced to exact percent-
nges, a statement showing the occupations of divorced women.
The bureau of the statistical expert iu
charge of tabulation divides the female
population of tlie I'nlted States of ten
vears ur upward into four general
(lasses. First there are the married,
wbo number 13.1C per cent. Then there
ure the widows, wbo number 10.10 per
cent. Third is the rlnss of the "single
and unknown;" these number00.64 per
lent. Finally ihere are the divorced,
who constitute nine-tenths of one per
cent, of ihe female population "f ten
yearsofftffe or over lu the United States,
and they ate distributed througl I
various occupations, which lire statistical experts have endeavored to state

be pretty nearly exact, for 3.20 of thc

World's Greatest Kidney Cure,
It's a simple matter to test the kidneys. You need not
consult a dncior. By asking yourself three questions, you can
determine whether or not your kidneys arc deranged.
First—" Have you backache or weak, lame back?"
Second—" Do you have difficulty in urinating, or too frequent desire to urinate ? "
Third—"Are there deposits like brickdust in the urine
after it has stood for 24 hours ? "
Iu its early stages kidney disease is readily cured by a
few boxes of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, a preparation
which has made Dr. Chase famous throughout the world for
his wonderful cure of diseases of the kidneys.
If you have kidney disease you can take Dr. Chases Kidney-Liver Pills with perfect confidence that what has proved
an absolute cure in so many thousands of cases will not fail
you. So long as the cells of the kidneys are not completely
wasted away, as in the last stases of liright's Disease, Dr.
Chase'c Kidney Liver-Pills will give them new vigor and
strength and absolutely cure kidney disease. One pill a dose,
25 cents a box, at all dealers, or Eumanson, Bates & Co., Toronto, Ont.

2500 men, none of whom will receive
less thau $2.50 per day, These meu will
work every day in the year and will
earn 7500 dollars a day, or 225,coo dollars
