Situate, as Golden is, in a country
which Is parsing through the develop
ment stage, where the natural resources
have, practically, only been prospected
and where the future lies before us
pregnant with almost nnknown possibilities of wealth and prosperity; it
behooves every man who resides in the
district to take an intelligent intere>t,
nor. only in the doings of his ueitrh
hors,. but also In the extension of!
knowledge of the character and re
sources of his environment. Knowledge Is power, and the more we know
of tho oountry around us the better
ablo we will be to use Its products with
advantage-whether they be mineral,
ag '{cultural or otherwise. Thep.-foiv,
it will be the principal endeavor of

It ia admitted ou all  hands that
Hon. "W. C. Welts ti by long odds the

Britieh Columbia has tver had.   We

thix district, where it is due to his
administration    lhat    Nurrth   East
Kocieiiay hai* her lirst shipping mine,
as we havo it on the authority of Mr.
Bruce himself thut be could not have
thought of shipping ore hut for the
aplend d road which was built under
the authority uf Hon. Mr. Wi-lU.    At
lu!Ve!s:o!;e Mr. Wells h*a alao waned
that important wirk  which baa been
agitated for so many years - namely,
the roud to open up the rich country
of the Big Betid. It is, however, fouud
that the road cannot be advantageously
pushed on during winter, aa it was
coating $10,000 a mile, and the work
has had to be shut duvvtt till spring,
when Mr. Wells intends to resume it
an I carry it through, thus placing tha
buck   country  within   eaay  reach of
Revelstoke.   Hon Mr. Weils has uow
i>ent Mr. Killed., Chief Road Inspector,
to Kamloops to look into some road
construction required there. The Chief
Commissioner hus  ulso in   hand tbe
most important road in the Province -
namely, that connecting Ashcroft witb
Cariboo, and he is considering a scheme
for placing th?& arterial read in drat
class shape at an expenditure of, sny,
$'J00.UU0.   Mr. Wid I a has also in hand
effective mc hemes for opet.l ig up the
Similknineen, Princeton and Keremeos
country, and also the cou
tho Fraiter Hi ver mid Chiliiwnck   His j
scheme mvludes a road over ���tie Hope ;
Mountains, thus Connecting the rich
mining country   near the   Boundary
district with tho Co<st and  tho rich
farming district of ihe Fraser Valley.
This will place the producers aud con*
Burners of British Columbia directly iu
touch witb each other instead of per*
mittjng tho producers of tho Province
to ho handicapped by the Eastern pro
ducer. as hns hitherto beeu the caRc.
Such a policy as that Inaugurated by
Hon,   Mr.   Wells will effectually open
up and  make available the rich  ro
sources of this Province,  and under
such au able and efft-ctivo administration   firiiUh   Columbia   must advance
by leaps aud bounds.
Golden would have had a now C. P
R. station last year but for the fact
that the Golden Townsite Company
offered to contribute part of the cost if
the C. P. R, would rebuild on the Site
of the prcsnt station, tt was intended
to build the new station towards tho
Courthouse, but the proposal made by
the Townsite Company ui tered the
arrangements. We hops to see tbe
new station built this spring, for it is
urgently required.

Pupils ne m Factor In Spreading kn-
f eel lows Dieeuiiea.
The reassert iou ot the theory of school
luflucuce as au active factor In tho
spread of infectious disease which has
lately beeu made makes it desirable to
Inquire under what circumstauees "closure" should be employed. All seems to
depend upon whether the assembly of the
children in the school In question Is the
main cause by which the disease is being
disseminated. Id a country district, for
example, with a sparsely scattered population, where childreu rarely meet except
Iu school, closiug the schools at the commencement uf an epidemic may effectually check its course, each infected center
working out Its owu salvation independently, and the one link between the different parts uf the district being for the
time broken.
Again, it may be discovered that iu
consequence of defective drains or other
Insanitary arrangements the school Is
itself actually u eau.se of disease, or at
least that Its condition furors the spread
of infection uuioug those who attend Its
classes, and in such n case the school
should certainly be closed while tbe uec-
essary repairs nud reconstructions are being carried out.
But apart from these two circumstances it must very rarely hnppeu th.it
it is justifiable (u close a school aud thus
break Into the educntlomil progress of
the scholars merely because a large number of them happen to be attacked by an
epidemic, for when nu epidemic bus obtained complete hold in a populous district the school is hut one of a dozen
ways in which Infection Ih being spread,
snd It may be far better tu keep the
school open nnd thus insure the continuance of that regularity ami orderliness of
life which attendance al school involves
than by closure to throw all the children
to play together In the streets or to huddle together in their homes.
It must always be remembered that the
part played by schools In spreading infection Is proportionately greater in the
country than in towns, since in the country it is practically in the schools alnuo
that children from different liunies coum
In contact with each other, while In
towns the schools are only one out of

Is au enthusiastic East Kootenay mau
and sees every prospect of a bright
future fur the Windermere district.
Speaking of the country, he said to a
Miner reporter:
"The town of "Peterborough is Merit-
���d on the Ctdmnbia River in the Windermere mining division of East Kootenay in a position tbat commands the
tradu of the great mineral belt in that
part of the S-.dk irk Range tin watered
by Toby, Horse Thief and No. 2creeks,
as well as of the agricultural and
ranching country lying in the fertile
valley of the upper Columbia. The
dividing line between the well known
Trout Lake country and the Winder-
m-Mc division is the summit of lho
Si'lkhks from GO to 100 miles south of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, Its
groat altitude and the absence of uu-
derbrnsh make prospecting coinpara
lively easy, so that al'hough it has
boen prospected by hut few, the large
area described Is now, known to be
thickly seamed with metalliferous
oins that iu continuity! site and
values entitle it to rank second to no
other in Southern British Columbia.

there was sufficient ore in sight to
warrant them lotting a contract uf
hauling SOO tons uf ore to thu river at
Peterborough, to be taken io the
smeller when navigation opens. This
cent taut has been enlarged to 1,1*10
tons. Briefly within eight months
from the commencement uf development on virgin soil, 1,000 tons of ore
will bo on the way to the smelter,
being transported over a first class
wagon road for 12 miles wher*. four
mouths ago there wae only a rough
mountain trail. lam assured by Mr.
Bruce that the transportation rate is
the same as for similar Slocan ore,
