Greenwood, B. C, July 12, 1901.
Per Year, $2.00
The following description of the B. C.
mine, written by S. F. Parrish, M. E.,
manager of the mine, was obtained from
that gentleman by E, Jacobs, district
correspondent for the Hritish Columbia
Mining Record and the New York Engineering nnd Mining Journal, both of
which publish it this month, with
photographs and the cross section referred to:
This property, the B. C. mine, owned
by the B.C. Chartered company, limited,
of Montreal, Quebec, is situated in Summit camp, in the Boundary district, on
the divide between the North Fork of
Kettle river and Boundary creek, about
midway between the towns of Grand
Forks and Greenwood.
The location was made in 189.1 and development work was commenced in the
summer of 1897. A shaft was sunk to a
depth of 160 feet, mostly in ore and vein
matter. From this two levels were
turned, one at 50 leet and the second at
150 feet, and drifting was started in a
general northerly and southerly direction, following the strike of the ore
body, Bofar as it could be determined. A
branch of the Columbia and Western
railway was completed to tbe mine in
in the autumn of 1899, this being a spur
from the line from FCholt to Phoenix,
and early in January, 1900, ore shipments were started from the dumps of
ore that had accumulated during the
development work. In June ot the
same year stoping was commenced.
The mine is equipped with a sufficient
plant to break and hoist more than 200
tons of ore a day through the present
The country is limestone which has
undergone various degrees of alteration
from a white crystalized or marbleized
rock, containing about 48 per cent lime,
and 7.30 per cent silica and having a
specific gravity of 2.07, to thoroughly
metamorphosed limestone, having ordinarily a small gold value, about 3-100
of an ounce, and containing 70 per cent
to 80 per cent silica and from 6.25 to
8.75 per cent lime,with a specific gravity
of about 3.00. There are different stages
of alteration, of course, between the
above mentioned limits, one piece of
rock not infrequently showing various
degrees of nietainorphism.
The microscopical determinations of
a number of specimens of this highly
altered limestone have revealed the
presence of the following minerals, most
of which are seen in each specimen:
quartz, plagioclase, epidote, garnet,
zoicite, magnesium and calcium carbonates, actinolite, kaolino, pyrite, chlorite
and serpentine.
Into this mass of rock sheets of porphyry, varying in thickness, from four
or live feet to thirty odd feet, have intruded, the intrusions hnvingapparently
followed more or less closely the bedding
of the limestone. A microscopical examination of these sheets of eruptive
rock reveals the following minerals:
plagioclase, orthoclase, niicrocline, bio-
tite and a little quartz, and the decomposition products of these minerals, viz.:
chlorite, carbonates and kaolinite. An
analysis of two different varieties gives,
respectively,'silica82.79 percent and lime
2.87 per cent, and silica63.21 percent,
and lime 5.52 per cent; specific gravity
about 2.117. It will be noted that the
porphyryis not mineralized at all.
Cutting through the above described
fonniitionsaresever.il (millings having
a general northerly anil southerly si rike,
with a slight dip to the east. There
does not appear to have been any great
vertical displacement, but. there are indications   of   a   more  or less extensive
lateral movement, Itis iu or near this
faulling that the ore is found,extending
into the country rork in a lens-shaped
mass so far as developed having an extreme width of about (15 feet by about
200 feet in length. This extends from
the surface of the ground to a depth of
nearly 3011 feet, below which it has nol
as yet been followed.
As will be seen from the cross section
herewith the ore lies in close contact
with each porphyritic intrusion, both
above and below it, the only effect having been a possible slight throw of the
ore \Xo the east. The ore itself is chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and some pyrite,
with a small quantity of gold and silver.
On the edges of the main ore body
bunches of specular iron and zinc blende
occasionally occur, but never in the on-
mass. The specific gravity of the ore is
3..15 to 4.00. Garnet rock is the mineral
most intimately associated with the ore,
occurring around the edges of the nre
body and occasionally in masses in the
midst of it. A noticeable feature is the
entire absence of oxidization of the ore
body, at the outcrop or elsewhere.
The tonnage of Ore shipped hy Boundary District mines during July tn nth  inst..   inclusive, sn fur
has been ascertained from the mines is as under :
Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill Group      4,888

The main ore mass is made up of more
or less horizontal sheets of ore varying
from a few inches to several feet in thickness,   possibly   maintaining very much
the form of the original   bedding of the!
limestone,of which it is probably a re- |
placement. There is nocementing of these
layers, consequently great care has to be :
exercised in  breaking the ore, for if too j
largean excavation be made without careful timbering one sheet, will fall from the j
one above it by its own  weight,    ft  has ;
been   found   necessary   to   timber   the'
stopes   with    square   sets   throughout,
there   being  no  other practical method .
of supporting the ground.    The sets are j
made ot 10-inch square  timbers and nre !
placed with five-foot centers.

shipping and smelting are excellent."
Additional information relative to this ;
property, as under, is contributed hy I
Mr. Jacobs:
The B. C. group consists of the following crown granted mineral claims:
B. C, Truckee, Reveille, Hilda, Vasbti,
Falcon, J. W., London, Daisy fraction,
B. C. fraction, and Novelty fraction.
These contain a total area of 2(18 acres.
Practically all the important development work done to date on the group
has been done on the B. C, this being
about 11,700 lineal feet, of which 1,410
feet is sinking and raising and 5,290 feet
crosscuttiug and drifting. As stated
above by Mr. Parrish, ore shipments
commenced in January, 1900. The tonnage shipped since then, to May 31 of
the current year, is ns follows:

Reduced to pounds the quantity of
ore sent to the smelter is 79,140,482
pounds, gross, or 78,101,110 pounds net.
The yield of gold, silver and copper,from
this was gold, 1128.83 ozs. ; silver, III,-
779.71 ozs., an.l copper, 4,366,203 lbs.
The average copper values were therefore nearly 7 per cent. The tonnage for
June was about 5,130 tons. With very
little exception this ore was treated at
the Trail smelter.
Tbe power plant at the B. C. mine includes four boilers, together about 226-
horse power; a straight line Band 4-
drill air compressor; hall of a class G
Ingersoll-Sergeant air compressor, rated
at 111 drills; one large and two small
hoisting engines; two sinking pumps;
an electric light engine an.l dynamo and
ajflill complement of accessories. At the
present time a diamond drill plant is at
contract work in the mine, prospecting
both horizontally and vertically. Quite
recently there were 110 men employed
here, but Ihe pay roll at the present
time is not up to this its maximum
Tbe manager, Mr. S. F. Parrish, M.K.,
has had many years' mining experience
having been engaged in mining in Colo-1
rado for about 24 years, of which 13 to
14 years were spent in Leadville, in
charge of various work and properties, i
among tbe more important of these having been the mines of the Chrysolite
Silver   Mining  company  and  the  Yak;
Mining, Milling and Tunnel companv.
Rumor   has been   busy  around town
during  the   week,   but,  as  is often the
case, it was astray in its assertions.   The
British Columbia Copper company  was I
credited   first  with   having bought the
Big Copper, in Copper camp,   next with '
the Oro Denoro. in Summit  camp,  an.l
finally with the Monarch   and Taniarac, ,
in   Greenwood  camp.    Enquiry at the J
local office of the  company   elicited   the;
assurance that,  so   far as   the  general
manager   knew,   none of these  rumors
were   credible.   Then   it    was  asserted :
that the Dominion Copper company was
negotiating  for the purchase of the Oro
Denoro, but from facts  that  have come'
to the know ledge of the   Miner  this  report, too, is likely to  for the present at;
any rate, hi- found mere gossip
Chas. K. Belts, accountant for Ihe
Carilioo-McKiniiey Mining an.l Milling
company, came down from Camp McKinney last Sunday and spent several
days in Greenwood. From bin. it was
ascertained that the mining industry is

continuing to yield gold regularly, lie

John Rogers, formerly at work on the
Hard Cash ami neighboring mineral
claims, situate in Wellington camp, and
more recently in .'barge of the Pathfinder, .m the North Fork of Kettle
river, came over from Grand Forks early
iu the week on a brief business visit.
From him it was learned that there is
little if any mining being done just now
on the North F'ork, although it is hoped
that it will not be long before two ..r
three of the mines in that locality will
be at work again.
Geo. D. Brice, master mechanic at
the Mother Lode mine, near 1 Ireenwood,

in pamphlet form by the local board of
trade, is likely to be of much benefit to
the district at large
Last Sunday a halt had to be called
in hoisting ore al the Mother Lode mine,

Columbia Copper company's smelter,
Greenwood, early this week This is
the lirst I..t of ..re sent out from the
mine since the machinery was installed
and, too, the lirst ore hauled to the rail-

for hauling. It is intended 1.. send down
six or seven carloads per week.
The United States copper production
for the first four months of this yenr has
been singularly close to the figures as
regards the same metal output for the
like period of 1900. Between January
1st and May 1st this year the V. S. copper output has been 88,784 Kuglish tons
of 2,2411 pounds, as against 89,200 tons
for the same period of 1900.
A new stope has been opened at the
II. C. mine, near Kholt, between the 325
and 250-foot levels, this giving 75 feet
vertical of ore. The diamond drill is
still at work prospecting. The working
force at this mine has been increased,
numbering now about 100.
Gilbert Mahon, manager of the Jewel
mine, in Long Lake camp, is expected

Work at the mine is in progress under
the direction of W. Kowe, who has gome
30 men employed there.
There are 15 men at work on tbe
Rathmullen group, in Summit camp.
There are about a dozen claims in this
group, butso far only one or two of them
have had any development to speak of

The road from the No. 7 mine has
been too soft for hauling much ore to

Kuglish publishing bouse, states that
the Snowshoe mine at Boundary has
been successfully Boated iu London, al-
tnoiigh the time was inopportune, "coming immediately after the collapse of the
II. A. C. The capitalization of the new
venture is stated to be. relatively speaking, small, while an ample am.unit has
been sel aside for working purposes-.
The S nowsone is one of the most promising eopper mines in the Boundary. The
men connected with its direction are not
market manipulators, nor promoters of
an evil type, who have been the curse of
British Columbia mining, but ''straight"
business men of the city of London. The
Snowshoe mine will, therefore, be worked for what the ground contains, and
n. .t as a means of extracting money from
duped investors.���News-Advertiser.

To tho K'liior of ilu- Montreal Btar:
Sin:���The papers of Montreal an.l Toronto have recently contained articles of
criticism and figures have been adduced
claimiinj to repsesent the losses incurred
In I hose and other eastern Canadian
cities iu mining in British Columbia.
To the ininiiiing industry of British
Columbia this is manifestly unfair. The
money lost in tbe recent slump ill
Northern Pacific stocks in New York
and elsewhere, was not lost in "railroading." The money lost in wheat and
corn stock is not money lost in farming;
nor is money lost iu "speculating" in
mining stocks lost in mining. Furthermore, half the money���or a considerable
portion of the money claimed to have
gone into British Columbia mines, has
not been so expended. The Virtue, for
instance is an Oregon property; the
Stanley, a Colorado property, each took
a great sum of money out of Montreal;
Oregon, California, Idaho and many
otlier western states, took considerable
money too. On the other hand, many
of the stock investments, now so low,
will not long so remain. The Centre
Star, St. Eugene, Rambler-Caribo, Noble
Five, and many others, will in due time
make money for their stockholders. No
reference is made whatever to a number
of good paying mines which might be I
mentioned ; the owners of which are not
saving anything tor publication, but
making money steadily. I know of
Mining may be, and often is, looked
upon as a gamble ; under proper conditions this is a mistake. When the
business is managed properly, by competent men, and when sufficient capital I
for proper and economical working and
development, is forthcoming, the risk is
reduced to a minimum, and not above
the average incurred in other lines of
Good mining men can reckon sometimes to a fraction the values of ore in
the mine, much the same as the timber
inspector estimates the quantity of timber on a certain tra.t of timber land.
They know what it will cost, very closely
at least, to take out such ores, and the
freight rates an.l incidental expenses
necessary to land same at the smelter.
Tbey can easily compute values of ores,
and quantity available for shipment.
They will only buy on values thus computed and they are as often under the
actual as over in their estimates. A
mine manager, if he knows his business,
studies it closer and makes a study of
bis mine, cannot be very much astray in
his estimates of what his mine can produce, and also pay under his supervision
and will regulate the expenses of the
mine accordingly.
The greatest evil to stock mining is
over capitalization. Greedy promoters
want to make as much as the mine is
worth for making sale and stocking and
selling to the public. I know of several
such cases. This works an injury to the
I know today of two or three mines
that can be bought outright for much
lesB than tbe value of ore in sight and
obtainable for shipping and marketing,
and this at present market quotations of
values of the metals contained in the
ores. To those unfamiliar with mining
this may seem an exaggeration, but not
so when the exact circumstances are understood. In one instance, the manager
and principal owner has mined and
worked in mines all his time and is getting old���is satisfied to take even less
than the value of his mine, so as to retire with enough to live comfortable on
the remainder of his life, and it will be
amply sufficient for him, lie is a careful mining man, knows what he has in
his mine, but will not leave it toothers
to manage while he is the owner. Another instance is of owners in a very
good niii.e being unable to agree, one
side threatening to serve injunctions
and resort to law, if policy and plans I
adopted for working mine are not
changed to suit their ideas of how it
should he done.
Again a mine may be worked by poor
men uptoa certain stage of development,
It then requires extensive improvements
at heavy expense; perhaps a long tunnel to enable the ore to be taken out by
gravity or without hoisting, putting in
hoisting, pumping, or otlier machinery.
The owners bave made a nice sum and
do not want to put all back again, and;
lay out of it for months pending develop-1
nieiits on a larger scale, which as the
mine grows may be deemed necessary
for economical handling of the ores.
They conclude best to sell to some
wealthy company, who can command
sufficient money to expend in advance
sufficient for such develpment, and wait
until profits as result of such work are
obtained. Now in such cases, and then-
are plenty of them, the people buy stock
at prices treble the value of what such
a mine cost. If such people would form
a company of their own, pay the prices
at which such a mine or mines can be I
purchased, and keep their shares or interests to themselves, spend directly on
the mine development what would be
lost on inflated, over capitalized stock,
Westward is your OPPORTUNITY!
The Town of Rendell, on the West Fork of Kettle
River is now on the market.
For the man of small capital it affords uuequalled
opportunity for sure investment.
With title perfect, prices low, terms liberal and excellent outlook, the sales are bound to be large.
the hills surrounding this new town are excellent mining
prospects. Several of them have already demonstrated
that they are mines.
The richness of the ore justifies hauling it at
present to Midway, by teams, over rough roads.
Good roads and railways mean fortunes. With
the immediate prospect of a railroad, for speculators in
real estate or mining properties, no place in the west
affords you an equal chance with

what a  different  story could be told of
mining in British Columbia,
Spokane real estate brokers, men with
nothing but wind, and they are not a
few in that town, men who had never
seen a mine could go ei.Ht and fleece the
poor people out of their money, while
men at the front, practical and experienced men, were passed by. Britisli
Columbia like all new mining camps
or countries, has, and is having, its setbacks and troubles, but you can not
keep a good man nor a good thing down,

its mineral resources. It is only a mat-1

When it was first announced that the
Canadian Pacific company would build
and operate the lead refinery which the
federal government has offered to bonus,
the Miner expressed the opinion that
the government would be reluctant to
enter into an agreement to pay the
bounties to a railway corporation, There
appeared very good reasons why no company should be given a monopoly of tbe
lead industry of the Kootenays. It may
be that the Miner was all wrong, and
that the government will be happy to
encourage the Canadian Pacific, company
to undertake the enterprise. We do not
get that impression, however, from a
leader in the Toronto Globe on freight
and smelting charges, suggested by the
proceedings at a meeting of the North
Star Mining company. "When the railways," it says, "combine their business
as common carriers with that of smelting ores, it is difficult to arrive at a basis
for determining what charges are fair
and what are unfair." Tbe meeting referred to was of the same opinion. The
cost of freight and treatment to tbe
North Star has been so heavy that the
management have decided to suspend
production until better terms can be obtained. This suggests remarks to the
Globe which can only mean that the
government is awakening to the necessity of taking the railway companies in
hand and subjecting them to rather
rigorous supervision.    "The people have
a right to see that the highways are not
manipulated   in   the   interssts   of any
I smelting enterprise.    The Canadian peo-
i pie will pay a bounty of $5 per ton on all
the lead smiled in   the  Dominion   next
| year, and under existing conditoins  the
entire amount  may absorb in railway
charges, leaving the smelting  aud   mining industries  no  better off than with-
J out the public aid."    If the government
I is alarmed to the point of legislating because of combined freight and smelting
| charges, it will not be anxious to  aggravate the evil by throwing  into  the railway pot. the refining interests as well.
From these and other remarks that
have appeared, with a sort of semiofficial authority, it would seem to be
the intention of the government and
parliament to take early steps to put a
curb on the railways.���Nelson Miner.
The regular monthly report of the
famous Treadwell mine on Douglas Island, Alaska, shows a gold yield of $10.1,-
930 for May. This splendid showing
was made with a 240-Stamp mill in operation but 21 days of tin month. The
other, a 300-st.imp, ran 28 days. All
told, 55,443 tons of ore were crushed,
yielding $113,050, with 1,122 tons of sul-
phurets saved, of the value of $34,840.
The ore gave a value of $2.95 per ton.
The gross expenses of operation for the
month were $47,810.
The following circular from the secretary of the London and British Columbia
Goldfields was recently sent to the shareholders :
"1 an. directed to inform you that the
financial arrangements for completing
the works of the Kettle River_Powcr
undertaking at Cascade, B. C, have
been carried out. From the prospectus
of the Kettle Itiver Power company,
limited recently sent you, you will be
aware that the capital necessary for
completing the works had been underwritten, and the issue has been made.
The result of this arrangement is that
the works and the provision nf the machinery are now being pushed forward
as vigorously as possible.and any anxiety
as to unduly trespassing ou the resources
of the London and British Columbia
Goldfields company  has been removed.
"1 am also pleased to be able to inform you that the Loudon and Britisli
Columbia Goldfields company has within the last few days completed arrangements for securing an exceedingly large
free milling gold property in the Lardeau
district of British Columbia, upon the
strong recommendations of our local
manager, Mr Robertson, and engineer,"
Mr. S. S. Fowler, both of whom describe
the deal as being a very valuable one.
This is fully confirmed by the information placed at the disposal of the company by Mr. E. Nelson Fell, brother of
Mr. Arthur Fell, one of your directors,
who is well acquainted with tbe details
of the property.
"A very large number of properties
have been under examination and consideration, but your directors were desirous of waiting until they could secure
a good property within a certain amount
of development, and one capable of producing a large output at low working
coBts. Tbe new property promises to
fulfil all these conditions.
"Owing largely to the exertions of Mr.
Robertson, the Canadian government
have granted a bonus in connection with
the treatment of silver-lead ores, whicli
it is believed will, in a short time, enable shipments of Hie product from the
Whitewater and Ruth mines to be re- ,
"The  returns   from the  Ymir mine
continue to  be highly satisfactory, the
average operating profit during the last
three months being about .��5,000 (about
$25,000)  per month.   The fact  that a
substantial further profit can be made
by the application of tbe cyanide process
to the treatment of the tailings,  places
j the undertaking in a still better position
as regards increasing profits, while the
I developments  continue  to  be  in every
I way satisfactory."

The Elks of Spokane are preparing for
a rich purple time, purple being the
chosen color of the order, on the occasion of their Street, Fair and Jubilee.
The event will be held in connection
with the Interstate Fair, the arrangement, being that the fair will run in the
day time and the Elks will conduct their
show down town at night. The fair will
run from September 10 to 21 inclusive,
but the Elks' jubilee will continue three
days longer, closing down September 24.
Ellery's Royal Italian band, the reorganized Royal Marine band of last season, will furnish music for both events,
giving nightly concerts in a large tent
seating over 5,000 people. In connection
with the hand concerts, the Elks will
have something never before given in
this section of the Pacific northwest -a
street fair, with midway features. The
latter will show the streets of Cairo, with
native Egyptians, Syrians, Turks, Arabs,
camels and donkeys, sword fighters, gun
spinners, wrestlers, acrobats, etc.; oriental dancers and a street of all nations
with its interesting aggregation of performers. Mexican theater, Algerian
theater, German village and kindred
There will also be a large portion of the
grounds set aside for industrial, manufacturing, mercantile and art exhibits.
Spokane Elks are just completing a new
temple which, when furnished throughout, will have cost not less $00,000. The
15-days' jubiless will be a fitting dedication of the magnificent structure.

Prof. Eugene llaanel, head of the department of physics in Syracuse university for the past 13years, has received
official notice of the ratification by the
cabinet of the Dominion of Canada of
his appointment as superintendent of
mines of Canada.
Prof, llaanel is in New York obtaining apparatus for the government assay (
ollice which is to be established in Vancouver. From New York Prof llaanel
will go to the coast and take the necessary steps to set the assay office in motion. Prof. Uaanel's appointment as
director of mines marks a new era in
mining matters so far as the Dominion
is concerned. The new superintendent
is an expert of many years' standing,
and he will give his best attention to
mining matters throughout the Dominion. Any suggestions he may recommend for the encouragement of mining will receive every consideration from
the government. The progress of mining development will be closely watched
and reliable statistics carefully compiled.
The facts gathered will he issued in the
form of a report, which it is expected
will appear every quarter. I'rof. Haanel
will occupy the office in the department
of the interior hitherto occupied by Mr.
A.J. McKenna,half-breed commissioner.
The latter will probably move his quarters to some point ill the west.
Dr. llaanel was born in Breslmi, Fer-
niony, May 24th, 1841, coming to this
country in 1859. He taught in Adrian,
Hillsdale, and Albion college, in Michigan. In 1K7M he went Victoria college,
Coburg, Ont. Dr. llaanel came to
Syracuse university in 1888, taking the
physical science chair.
The provincial revenue received at the
government office, Greenwood, during

out by an alarm of fire sent in at 11
o'clock last Tuesday night. It transpired that a small log cabin was burning, and though its destruction was a

works, ignite a large crowd turned out
to see the (ire, only to be disappointed,
as it fortunately happened.

The following is the business transacted at the Greenwood post office for the
[year ended June 30th, 11)01 :
non News, who is on his way east to
Toronto for a vacation, stopped off to
spend a week in Nelson en route. He
reports that it is a very good year for
crops and cattle in the Okanagan. and
from present indications the fruit crop
will also be first class. Till two years
ago nearly all the products of the Okanagan valley were shipped to the cast,
the Okanagan fruit proving much
superior to that brought up from Washington, an.l finding ready sale. Now, although the demand from the coast is
greater .ban before, a large quantity of
their crops, especially of fruit, is being
sent to various Kootenay points, among
which Nelson is naturally the leading.
When the Boundary road is completed
through to l'enticton n still larger quantity of this trade will be diverted here.

At Niagara Falls there was recently
...iveilcil a monument to Laura Secord���
"the first 1iKi11ii111e.it erected to a woman in Canada," says a despatch, The
I first erected to a Canadian woman, the
j correct expression would he. There are
many statues of Queen Victoria.
Eighty-eight years ago the frontier between Canada nnd the United States
was being devastated by lire and sword.
Pursuant to bloody lighting in the
Nil.-.'lira peninsula, hostile troops were
awaiting chances to deal further blows j
at each other. A Canadian outpost at a
far... culled DeCeu's, a few miles from
where St. (latharii.es now stands, was
troubling the enemy. The American
commander a* Fort George, General
Deahoni, planned to surprise the outpost. On the night of June 2:x, 1818, an
American force over BOO strong under
Lieut.-Col. Boerstler, with two guns,
slipped out from the United States lines I
to surprise the Canadian outpost at De-
Cell's, heltl by Lieut. Fitzgibbon with 80
men of the -19th regiment and a couple
of hundred Indians.
A.t that time Queenstown was in possession of the Americans, and  the force i
fro... St. George passed through it on its >
way     against    Fitssgibbon,    Living   in '
Queenstown were James Secord and his
wife,   Luuru.    James   Secure   had been
severely   wounded  fighting at Queens-
town  heights as. an officer of the Canadian  militia, and  was still unable to
walk.    He and his wife were  both  chil-:
dren of   United   Umpire   Loyalists  who j
had  been  driven  out  of  the American
colonies in the revolutionary war, after
treatment of the most  bitter  kind  and
the  loss  of all they bad possessed.    Naturally their feelings were  the  stronger
for the British cause  when  the  torrent
of   war  came   upon   Canada   in   1812.
.lame Secord could not   move,   from   his
wounds; in  any event,  the  town   was
guarded to  prevent Information getting
forward  to  the   Hritish side; but Laura
Secord  undertook  to  warn  the Hritish
She was a woman of IIS, the mother of
five children. Those, who recollect her,
for she lived to be 98, and died in 18IIS,
the year after confederation consolidated
the great northern country she risked
her life to save, describe her as a "fine,
tall, strong woman." She hud need to
be; although Lieut. Fitzgibbon wrote of
her as "slight and delicate," but admits
that he was in considerable of a hurry
alter she came to him. This woman,
whether strong or otherwise, accomplished an extraordinary journey.
Starting from Queenstown in the night,
she with one brief rest nta friendly farm
house, toiled for nineteen miles by circuitous routes to avoid American posts
and scouts, over bad roads put at their
worst by prolonged rains ; through fields
and woods, wilding creeks, crossing one
small river on a fallen tree, until at
night she stumbled into a camp of Indians near DeCeu's. They greeted her
with startled yells, and in after years
she spoke more of th_-dread the cries
created in her than of any other feature
of her journey. With difficulty she
made them understand that she must
see Lieut Fitzgibbon ; finally they took
her to him, and he learned of the approaching American attack.
Such was theacconiplishinentof Laura
The following day,  Lieut.   Fitzgibbon,
reinforced by a few militia, ambushed
Lieut.-Col  Boerstler's force and killed,
I wounded or captured every  man  in  it.
| The  story  of  the light need not. be told
here; but when it was over, 67 Americans  were  killed  or   wounded  and 644
ollicers and  men and the two guns captured,    The  total   British   force  which
j gained so decisive a victory numbered
! but ii7 regulars or militia and  250  Indians,   This   is  known as  the battle of
Beaver Hums.
Laurn Secord's heroic endeavor was
equally arduous and successful. Hit
name has heen a household word in On-
tarin   since.    The   monument    to   her,
though In., un additional tribute to one
whose inline has been honored wil hoi.t,
any memorial stone, is a most fitting
testimonial to the fearless patriotism of
a noble-hearteJ woman who voluntarily
faced a desperate ordeal with the best
courage   of   her   race.���Ottawa   Valley
