Alberta's Oil Gushers
W.nnlpojr Tribune,   ,
Pincher Creek, Alta , Sept 8—The
highest quality of oil, gushing from .a
twelve Inch hole fifty feet into the air
and flowing at "a rate 'of over 800,000
gallons per day, Is the result of boring
operations carried on a few miles from
here. •    '   "
., Great secrecy has been maintained in
a fairly successful attempt to withhold
the mattof from tho public.as there are
several small parcels of land on the
edges of the belt for which a grant has
been applied for, but "which have not
yet passed into the hands of the Rocky
Mountain . Development company,
which is conducting ihe operations
- This pil district, in which it is believed the largest oil lake in the world
lies beneath it he surface, is. situated in
the extreme southwestern section of
the province of Alberta, five miles from
the American boundary line, and. only
forty miles' south,.of flncher Creek
station .on the Canadian Pacific railway.
.. One year ago' the well was bored to a
depth of one thousand feet and. a flow
of three hundred barrels a day was
struck Confident that this was by no
means the limit, boring was continued
and a standard cable drilling, rig, one
ofthe heaviest .made and capable of
drilling a twelve incb hole, was brought
iurb use. *     .      „-   .
Last Tuesday'a depth of about fifteen
hundred feet was reached, when the oil
which is of the very • highest quality,
gushed like a water spout into the air,
aiid it was impossible to drill any deeper. The section iii which the well was
situated -.was flooded? with this thick
petroleum two or three feet deep..'

to purcl-ase the -whole sections iu which
theso small ''portions are situated tbe
Ottawa government has been petitioned
to mako a graut in their favor.
Pluck and what .the American , terms
"Htick-to-lt iyeneus" of tbe most pro*
nounced kind were roqiilrdd for the ad*
Vjinccmeiit and successful completion
of the undertaking..
Many years ngo a farmer, William
Aldrlch, awaro of tho naturo of the
land, wns in the-habit of gathering
oil in barrels from the surface seepages,
which he sold to the Mormon settlers
near by. Tliose used the oil for lighting and lubricating purposes. In Ister
years Jolm Linham, a wealthy lumber
manufacturer, had his attention drawn
to this fact, and after full investigation
ofthe pass weut east and obtained the
best oil expert and geologist he could
find. Tbo report returned far surpass*
ed the most hopeful anticipation, and
I .luham at onco formed a company

In getting tho innd surveyed, which
I'onph'd with the richness of the country
made It 110 light task. The engineers
were forced to go clear to tho Intern,
atlonal boundary monuments in' order
to obtain correct hearings and to en*
tabliHli lilies. There wns alio delay in
obtaining a title from tho government.
Roads had to bu built tn tako the
machinery into tbo country, and bridges
were erected ovor tho mountain streams
and It was not until Juno of last vosr
that tho work was properly started. A
(low of 8,000 hit mils per day Is now tli'i
result, and If a well Is bored down 8,000
feet, which is possible, It Is probable
that the flow obtained wlll be Incredulous to 1I10110 who have not examined

According to the report of the goolo.

formation of tho Rocky Mountains and
thereby forming a baslu llko vacuum
Into which tho oil—caused from distillation of the largo coal bodies lying to
the west—seeped until It formed vast
lakes underlying thotock foundation at
a depth of about 1,000 feet.
When the value of the discovery is
fully realised by the civilised world,
Alberta will spring Into fame for anoth
eraud new project which will cause
the eyes of other countries to look upon
Canada even moro enviously than at

a saving of from <W to 60 cents a barrel.

Last Thursday morning at twenty minutes to five o'clock the big steam whistle swoke the people of Fernie out of'their
|/»|umber, aud told tlioin that tho flue large. mill,beloiiglnff to the Elk Lumber Co. and situated across the river in West
Ferhie was on fire. The writer heard,the first sound but supposing it was the usual six o'clock note to awaken tbo
men for breakfaBt, he turned himself over "folding his1 hands for a little more slumber," but as the big whistle did not
stop to take breath as usual, he looked at the wit.dbw to find the rejection of light upon the pane*. Jumping our of bed
he hastened tb tho window and saw at a glanco that tho big mill wns doomed. He could see that the'fire was on the side
next tbo town, and was blMlng up ten or twelve feot high. Dressing as hurriedly as possible he joined the crowds of
people who were goiug down the hill nut before reaching tho rlvor bridge the roof ot the great structure had fallen in
If we boar this fact hi mind wo will see that it could not have been over twonty minutes from the time tbe flro started
until it had enveloped tbe whole, building.   •    '
Tho roof of tho lath mill, in or near which, tho fire started, sloped upwards toward the main building forming a regular shoot whioh served to force tho flames directly Into tho mill. Tho frame of tho mill was of perfectly dry timber some
bf it saturated with oil, and wherever there was a leakage of oil from the machinery thoro was a collection of flnn' wood
dust which acted as so many conductors of the flames and Ihis fact explains the rapidity with which the fire spread to all
parts of the mill. " ...
We give at the head of this artlelea plan of tho ground floor of tho mill which wlll enable our readers to soo at a glanc*?
tho point of origin of the flro and the location of the flro plugs which wore so well arranged for the purposo for which
thoy wore Intended. The writer mot Mr. Cameron of Roglnu, one of tho salesmen ongagod by tho Klk Lumber Co tho
afternoon before the Are and feeling in need of a Iittlo diversion accopted.an invitation to go down nml tiike a leok' over

and forth past the circular and band saws, live rolls taking the cants, plnnks, boards ano slabs hither and yon each
piece going to Its appointed placo with tha precision of clock work, Tho lath mill was a veritable bee lilvo with Its bu//

hollers and saw tho light of a flro. He ran to tho back of thu bollors Jumped upon tho platform and pulling d,iwn the
whlstlo cord, tied It, Then ho turned tlio water of tho smsllor pump Into the boilers, turned the steam off of the Ian-tor
onoback of the engine, coupled on his hose, carried it out through thomlll to tho foot ofthe stups loading to tho floor of
the lath mill. Ho then returned to tho pump and put It In motion and stayed with it until the corner of the roof of thu
boiler house noxt to ths lath mill fell In when ho had to rctrfiiit. By turning the water Into the hollers he saved them

contemitorary says;
'Amazement Is the only word that
describes Canadian leeling In the
matter of Lord Mlnto*s appointment
as viceroy ot Indin. Canada hM,s
been taught to regard tlie viceroy-
ship of India as an ofiice Calling- for

Thc real explanation of thoaffsilr is
to be four.il in the simple fact that
there is not room in tho Empire of
India for but one real, governor. So
long'ts Lord Kitchner, of Khartoum,
is at the head of the military out
there, the man who ploys viceroy

This town of one and a half years is
making more noise and stir in the
world than many very much older
and larger places. Its citizens d4> not
intend to let it die of dry rot or to be
imposed upon by lhe denizens of more

board of trade, a fine two-story school
house in course of erection, an electric
light plant, a fire brigade and a water
system.' The latter and the electric
light plant' are the properly of the

occurred at L'Aigle in France in ,1803:
Between 2000 and 3000 .meteoric stones

three, wide, some of which weighed  50
. pounds or more, . ,
With most metal mercury, forms a
series of alloys called, amalgams;" in
Some cases, lis with the alkali metals,
tlie formation of the alloy is attended
with, a rise. of. temperature, while in
ofjier cases, as wilh tin an absorption
of heat results. Sodinni and potassium
, amalgams are decomposed by contact
With water, yielding hydrogen gas and
an allcaline hydroxide; for', this reason
sodium amalgam is used im the laboratory as a reducing agent. Zinc amalgam is acted upon very slowly by dilute
sulphuric acid, and on this account the
surface of zinc plates, in galvanic'batteries is usually amalgamated., Tin
amalgam is used t"» produce -the reflecting., surface, of-.ordinary mirrors!
and amalgams of-,.gold,- copper, and
varying in size containing 65 to 500
matches, the." boxes having'' been .fed
into the machine automatically. Two
million or more paper' or strawboard
boxes are consumed each day in .'the
packing of matches in ihis^ country.
One million and" a: half pounds' of
chlorate of.* potash are consumed annually in,the manufacture of matches.,
'" The earliest .known record- of a producing silver mine was that of mines
operated'by, Hannibal, of Carthage,, as
far back as 200 B. C. "The mines were
located at Guadalcanal at tlie foot, of
the Sierra Morena . in the province of
Cordova,-.* The productiveness-of these,
mines was great as it is ,said', that for
several years they .yielded Hannibal 300'
pounds of silver each day. The *- mines
were worked.. by • horizontal tunnels
which extended a couple of miles into
• The color of a mineral is the kind ol
light which it cither- transmits or reflects. If trads'parcnt a mineral may
transmit one kind of light and'reflect
another; hematite.for example, ordinarily appears black, by reflected light
but on looking through" thin crystals
they appear red.. Some 'minerals transmit dilterenl colors in difiereut directions, ; The external or superficial
colors are those which first appeal to
the eye, hut they are not usually of
great importance because not constant.
The essential color or streak of a mineral, which is the color of the mineral
when powdered, is a character of .first
importance because it varies but, little
regiirdlessofwhat lhe external color
may be. ' Play of - colors; change of
colors, iridescence, .tarnish .and opal-'
cscence are properties whose study is
full of interest.   . -
" Several thousand pounds of mercury'
or quicksilver are; used yearly 'in' this
country in medicines. " Mercury ' tril-
uraied with some other substance forms
most valuable medicines and their' use
produces specific mercurial effects local
and constitutional. - .Such compounds,
are blue niass (blue pill), mercury with
chalk (gray-powder),- mercurial, ointment and mercurial'plaster.'' All mercurial compounds entwring the circulation lmve a pcoujiar influence over
nutrition'"." This is" especially true ol
the salts of mercury,, such as mercur-
ous chloride or*; calomel, mercuric

. Upon-the >, first- production -of this
brilliant play, atCovent Garden Theatre
Royal;* London, in 1838/ it'had., the advantage ofbeing most effectively cast—
and probably never "since have "all. the
parts been so well and evenly filled.
It must*, however," be remembered, that
Lord Lytton, the author, knew what
they could do, and had them in mind
when he "wr'ofe, the play. Every person
engaged, rose afterwards to a leading
position hi the, profession. Mr. Mac-
ready, the representative of the hero of
the play was in ever%respect' admirably adapted to the'-part.   7
'Educated for thebnr, lie cjuitted that
profession for the stage, ' and combining a fine appearance with high intellect, and excellent voice and'- good ele-
cution, he^vas all that the author could
desire.    -      .

Victoria, B C, Sept. 11.—The advent
of the present hunting season has been
marked in Vancouver Island by an
unusually )ai-,<ce number of misadventures occasioned by carelessness
or. ignorance of woOdmanship
On the opeuing diiy of tho season
Sydney Cameron of this city rcceivtd
a charge of buckshot iu thu neck and
shoulder, through the inability of some
unidentified brother sporstman to Ait.'
tinguish him from a deer., Cameron's
do;,' was killed by the same discharge
that wouuded his master. , At Sooke
harbor, a young man named Brenton
also had a narrow egcape from serious
injury under very similar circumstances.
The most thrilling ' hunting seat-on
adventure is however reported from
Albernl, where, with shoes almost
dropping from his bleeding,feet, cloth
ing that was merely a maze of rags
and tatters, and tlie general appearance
of a wild ihan," Antonio Del pout e pf
Cumberland, succeeded -in" dragging
himself up to a farm house at the head
of tbe Albernl valley, on  Wednesday.
Between wolfish  bites at food- placed
before hiiu ho explained that ha had
spent five days and'nights in the bush,
between the scene of his recovery of
touch with civilization, and Cumberland, bia home.   . Meauwhile several
parties  had been searching for him,
whose anxiety was relieved as soon ss
the Alberni telegraph ollice could Li
reached*. Delponte's adventure was i.
curious oiie.   He left Cumberland Fri
day morning for a hunt, making for U't-
mouutainseast-of Ash lake.    In,the
thick bush of the neisj-liborhood he un
consciously wandered over to tbe Great
Central lake side of the range and ther.
became mixed up   in the   countloen
small streams and denso underbrush.
Day followed day; and losing alt-sense
of' locality    or . direction, - Dolponte,
famished and frantic,  pushed, deepor
and deeper into the wilderueBS.    The
fortunate discovery of a few rotten
potatoes in an abandoned prospector's
cabin came; just' in timqptb skve him
from eiuklng.     Shortly after this a
grouse fell,to his gun^and  was eaten
raw, and with better/strength Dclpoute
turned south,   On the evening of the
fifth day out the distant sound of a shot
came to his ears, tho lirst evidence or
human habitation.'  It was heard just in
Peaches,' Plums, Apples, .Orange*?,7 Lemons.
