���'Kid" Price Brings in a Lame Block *%
A Big Thin*- for This Town���Golden is the Nearest and Host
Convenient Supply Centre.
MjCA has been brought in from time to time by parties who have come from
that part of this district lying between Beaver and the Big Bend, and
fair specimens havo Heen exhibited in this town very often, hut it remained for
Mr. C. P. Price, better kuown as " Kid," to bring in a piece to open theeyes of
Goldenites, and which, if shown in any of the moneyed centres of the east,
would create a furore.
" Kid" has been trapping and prospecting the whole of the northern portion
of this district Tor the past few years and has Irso-ed the inlet, formitil* n over
a long stretch ot territory before dually selecting the point ou which l.e haa
now located.
Accompanied b.v Chas. Hatch, l.e left in the middle of June for the north'
carrying with him |.osvder and steel with which to ope'i up the ledife, hut on
unpacking his supplies no chjis were forthcoming, mid no work could he ''one..
Just why the caps were not there has been the subject of nume*t'uus debate^
between "Kill" and "Mac" and tlie decision ii as far -sway ass ever Having
to return. Price dug out n detached block of the mineral which had rotted
away from the main ledge, and was lying embedded in 'be Soil, and brought it
in with them as proof of what they bad fo-ind, It wai this rotten piece that
created so much excitement, uud it well might, ss it shows a clear surface
when split of 23x15 inches.
Price left this sample in Recorder Lang's specimen case, where it has been
duly admired by local mining men.
Mr. G. 11. McDermot, Dr. Taylor and Miss Lang are also interested in this
proposition, and we learn thnt it is the intention of some New Yosk gentlemen
to secure machinery for 8|>!itting the mica iulo sheets nnd 50 be in u ��� csitioo
to ship the finished product.
The location of the claims is in the Big Bend, two mil s from the river, nnd
almost directly opposito the mouth of Wood river.
The mineral is found in a dike of quartz an.l is. as the loo.e Specimen indicates, in large piece?.. At points where tho quartz lias bjt-n exposed to the
weather there is good showing, nud thn mineral can be traced for 11 distui.ee of
200 yards on the surface.
Price brought in bouio specimens of tin that have beon sent for an assay, bnt
those who ha.e leen the samples, and are in n position to juonounce on their
'.nine, snj Hint the ledge is high grade.
Noi tii Fast Kootenay will soon be recognized ns the banner division of the
fin-fumed Kooienays.

Tne advancement male is, ou the
whole, satisfactory; although fewer
claims have ben recorded than in the
previous year, yet more assessment
work snd actual development has been
done on' he various properties throughout the District. The lack of transpcr
tution facilities no doubt retards
progvess io a very large extent. It is,
however, obviously impossible for the
Government to build waggon roads in
every direction through .so largo a

such roust necessarily depend upon
sufficient development being done on
the claims in any particular section to
warrant iheir construction.

what weeds are to the com.
diseases of the stomach and

The proper digestion and

healing diseases of the stomach and organs of digestion and
nutrition, Dr, Pierce's Oolden
Medical Discovery increases
the digestive and assimilative
powers, stimulates the action

and sends to every organ of the

Chicago Boy Told Marahall Field So ud
Got m RftlM.
Itis tald thnt nervo and Chicago nro
synonymous terms. Here is a story which
proves tbo truth of tho Idea, ond whiob
goes tu show thut a Chicogcan develops
bis nervo early:
Everybody knows Marshall Field, tho
multimilliotmire���the man who gave $lt-
000,000 to n llbrury. Kverybody bus heard
of bis big store, lu this store there id a
cash boy who U making moro money than
his confreres, aod tho story tells bow he
earned tho raise. The regular salary of a
oashboy Is 111 a week. Tho youngster in
quostion thought he was worth more and
hunted up the manager to tell bim so.
"I Would like tu get n raise," suld the
boy.   "1 think 1 ought tu huve It."
"My boy," said the matuiger, "you nre
making Just what is given ull the cash-
boys, and I don't seo bow I can aceommo-
Tht* buy's assurance nmused the manager, who jokingly advised bim to see Mr.
Field. Now, Mr. Field's visits to his store
are few and far between. Hb is rich
enough to bo above tho details of builness,
and when he entered the store an hour or
so nfter the conversation between manager
nhd.eushboy his coming was In tho nature of nn event. The buy beard of his
arrival und at onco headed fm* tho millionaire proprietor. Watching bis chance, ho
slipped upon the magnate and suld:
"Are you Mr. Field'.'"
"1 am, my son. What can I do for you?"
"Yuu can raiso my salary, please. 1
can't work auy longer for fit a week."
"I don't attend to these mutters,   You
will havo to see the manager."
���  "I havo already scon the manager, sir,
and he referred me to jou.",
The boy's manner Impressed tbe millionaire, nnd he said: "My buy, you aro
making tii a week. Thnt is pretty good
salary for n youngster. It is more than I
was making whon I was your age."
"Well,'1 said thu hoy, quick as n flash,
"maybe you weren't worth any more."
Mr. Field laughed. Then he saw the
manager. "That boy," ho declared, "has
too much pluck nnd wit to work for (!)."

tale drew $4, and pro in otic n Isn't far off.

Fonr or five Washington correspondents
were telling stories uf thtlr experienced
with statesmen, local and national, when
ono of them from n state In the southwest
swung Into line with something n Utile
out of the ordinary.
"1 was doing tho legislature," bo began, "for a symllcnto of newspapers, with
some freo laneo work on the sido, and was
making u potful of money out of it. During tho course of my ministrations I discovered a case of vnto siflllng by u rural
representative tbat was i tnnishing for Its
small ness. 1 couldn't Uml uut what the
in en. ber got, but It couldn't have been
much, fertile whole mutter at Issue wasn't
worth more than |4.j>0 or thereabout.
After exhausting nil my sources uf Infor-
million 1 thought I would try the member
himself nnd see how guilole.*-. be hus ou a
little thing like that I didn't dure ask
bim his price, but 1 did dare to talk abuut
It, nnd 1 v.* nt at li tin directly.
"'Suy, yuung ieller,1 he snid after I
bad talked awhile, 'how much do yuu git

" 'lt'a n pretty bi;: tiling for me,' 1 replied persuasively, 'and I'll get t?:lb fur the
story If I can get It complete.'
" 'How much.-' he asked, with an eager
" 'Twenty-flve dollars,' I repeated.
" '(iee whir/.!   I'd like to hnve your job.'
." 'Why? It isn't un easy one.. Not bu
cosy as yours any way.'
" 'R'r'aps It ain't,' bo snid slowly, 'but
it pays better.'
" 'How do you mean?'
"'Why, yuu git $','*> for jlst tolling nbout
whnt I done fer ��5.'
"Thosyntox mightn't havo lieen perfect
perhaps," concluded tho speaker, "but the

Palliser, July"10���A fenturo of the
trackmen's strike tbnt cannot fail to
Impress the lenst observant of men, is
the absolute power which theootn'pany
exercises in dealing with tbeir employees in tha matter. Before the
strike was a day old, an 1 even before
there was t\ symptom of any hostile
conduct by the strikers, the company,
hy authority uf the Provincial Government, bad a body of special constables
distributed along the road. Had a
regiment or two of armed sold.ies been
requested no doubt tbey would have
been fiiriiUhcl, ns in tbe case of the
fishermen's strike a year ngo. Laying
aside the injudicious, aggravating and
insulting aspect which the swearing in
uf -'special-." gave rise to in the minds
of law-abiding s'rlksrs, it shows how
readily a Government will follow at
tho call of a wealthy corporation,
while ihe wail of thousands of underpaid and oppressed laborers never
reaches its our. It is this pandering
discrimination in favor of the money
<ods that is the cause of strikes and
endless fi iction between capital aud
labor. Instead of widening tho breach
in labor disputes a Government should
interpose its goodly offices in tbe honorable an ' peaceable adjustment of the
dispute, rather than by armed inter
Terence, It is wonderful tlie power of
huge corporations. Nol long ago the
