I have founil the pay shoot, but will

of the old shuts, which is 8!i feet deep,
in places runs up as high as .00 to

Among thi! guests at tile l'hair yesterday wns .1. M Harris, president
and genernl manager of Hie Reco
Mining .il Milling company, of San-
ilun, ami onn of the pioneers and
picturesque figures of Hie Slocan. In
speaking of the condition of the mines
in the silver lead belt around SandoU
Mi. Han is snid : "The Reeo never
had as 1 irge a showing of cue as at
present. Krom the deepest workings
of tlie mine, which are about 000 feet
from the surface, about ISO tons of
ore of a pay grade is being extiacted
each mouth and a part of this is
tieing Bent to the Trail and the rest lo
the Selby Smelting works near San
Francisco, Cal. There aro ISO men at
work in the Reeo. All the mines that
aro being operated in the vicinity cf
Sandon have as gio;l showings of ore
in their lower workings as ever in
their history, but the low price of
lend, the high smelting and transportation charges, the laok of confidence
ill the government and oilier drawbacks have a tendency to discourage
Iho mine opcratois, Among the mines
included in those whicli are looking well are the Last Chance, Rambler Cariboo, lloodenough, Silverton,
Trade Doilur nnd others. The mine
owners are only getting jl.'1'l, less 10
per cent, per 100 pounds for their
lead, The lead refinery should be of
help to tho silver-lead minds, provided it is built by parties who will
compete with tho trust nnd provided
it dors not full into the hands of the
lead trust. As a matter of fact the
higher grade properties ulone of tlie
Slocan are being opeiated at a small
profit while those of a lower glade
are shut down awaiting the advent
of mure favorable conditions. We ex-
pod hotter times ufter January 1st
next. Then the contracts with the
smelters will hnve expired by limitation nnil it is anticipated that new
ones will make a lower freigtit
and treatment rate than is i.-j vogue at
present. The present rate is 8111 per
ton with one cent per pound oft the
lend for freight and treatment. A
lower transportation and reduction
charges would bo of help to us at
present as a dollar or two per too
under existing conditions makes quite
a difference," concluded Mr.   Harris.
George (lillies. president of tlie
Toronto Holt & Forging company, is
among the gtiostn at the Phair. Mr.
Uillles is also president of the Imperial Development Syndicate, which
controls the Eva group in the Camborne camp, Mr. Gillies stated that
he eniiio hero fur the purpose of examining the Eva group und of generally looking into tho affairs of the
syndicate. The sum of $10,000 wns
paid   by   the   Imperial   Development
Syndicate o i ��� Monday   to tho parties
from whom the property was bonded.
It will be remembered thnt the It.
0. Hold Fields, limited, had a bond
on the Eva group under which the
property wns to bo acquired for the
sum of if'.Ou.OOO from the Imperial
Development Byndioate, Under this
bond tho sum of $15,000 was (pent iu
development work and some excellent
showings of oro wero uncovered. The
Jl. C. Cold Fields, however, threw up
the bond. Now, it seems, the Imperial
Development Syndioate has dtermioed
to go ahead with the development of
the property and hus shown its good

Colon, Oct. s.���Forces of Liberals
numbering about .1��o attacked Morro
island commnuding the entrance to
the port of Tumaco un September
84th. The island hnd uli nlong been
garrisoned with loss than 100 troops,
well supplied with arms, ammunition
and stores, including more than 150
neail of cattle and other provisions
in proportion. The binding was
affected before daybreak, by means
of canoes. Simultaneously the island
was stormed from tlie other end by
Liberals on tbe mainland. Mono
island is surrounded by shallows and
banks uud thn only means ol approaching tlie island is by the narrow
river, which is within easy rouge of
tho island. Tiie British steamer
Quito, bound from Guayaquil, Ecuador}, for Panama and touching at ports
between,anchored off Mono island on
the night of September 10th and
weighing anchoi at daybreak started
up the steam towards Tumaco. The
Liberals flred a shot across her bows.
Suspecting the situation she immediately turned ; but rifle shuts and one
cannon continued to be fired at her,
the former stiiking her several tunes

hole right through her at tlio water
mark, though tho damage in othor respects wus slight.
The Quito then steamed lo the furthest point the tide would permit
and again anohore I, The firing was
now resumed but it coar.od after a few
minutes,the Liberal having discovered
the imprudence of thoir action. It is
signiflcunt that, shoitly after the
Quito incident became known the
Itritish warship lenrus left Panama
for a destination not made public, but
probably Tumaco. The steamship
agents havo been officially notified not
to accept freight at that point. Thc
situation ou the isthmus is unchanged

Statements concerning tbe profit
enrning possibilities of low-grade
mines ns Ihey arc ordinarily given
oct to, and accepted by the public.
are on the whole misleading says the
Mining and Scientilic Press. Possibly
nt is the intent with whioh some
are started, but it does not excuse
ibeir unrelialility, even though it explains the reason for it. The danger
con-lists in the setting up of 11 false
valuation for mines. The low grade
mine is ordinarily an example used
without any qualification, to make a
direct comparison with a different
kind of mine. Por want of un exuet
accepted definition, a low-grade mine
is loosely taken to mean a mine yielding gross market values of metal as
low SB the particular example. Oold
quartz mines that arc made to pay on
82 ore, quicksilver mines that show a
profit on paper witli one-third of one
per Oent quicksilver ore, copper mines
that I ay more than expenses with three-
fourth of one per cent of copper, when
c ipper sells at 17 cents per pound, are
all popularly considerdmuoh the same
kind of low-grade mines, In reality
they are not at all the same thing.
The gold mino that pays with 92 a
ton ore is tho true low-grade mine,
made by unturo an apportunity, and
as such improved by mac The
quicksilver mine with .'13 ptrcent
ore is npt a mine at all. It is only
nenr enough to it to be a school from
which to got experience at not too
high a cost. The % Pur cent copper
mino as a low-grade mine for profit
is a mistake. Theie may be a profit
with oopper at 17 cents, but it vanishes with a slight downward change
in the market price of the metal. Tbe
chance of profit should not he taken.
With the exploitation of low-grade
gold mines one must feel tho way by
trials on successively larger scales
Thero ia no ileductivo certainty that
the eioipicnce of exploitation of one
mine is going to duplicate itself in
The only wife way is to bo liberal
iu insisting on a considerable profit
margin for a new proposition ovor
that found by experience in the old
one. With so-called low-grade mines
of othor metals it is a queBtion of tlie
maintenance of present metal prices.
The permanent tendency of lend, oop-
por and zinc prices is downward.
Tho much greater aggregate of mining opcratons for these metals has a
constant tendency to increase tlio production of the metal from high-grade
ores and to depress the sale price of
the metul. The effect is to raise the
minimum grade nt which the ore can
be profltnbly mined. It 1.*, good business to discount this tendency in
advance. Big low grade propositions
may figure into metul very fust, but
into profits not at all.
The cost of mining and treatment
ol' the unit of ores is a fairly lixed
fact from which to begin estimnting.
The average metal content of the ore
Bhould bo able to balance this from
the sale prices much lower than at
present. Here is whero a difference
may cumu 111 between mines. With
unliable oro bodies uf lhe same magnitude nnd average metal content, one
may have the moial uniformly distributed in tint ore, and the others
havo more or less of iis metal concentrated so that It oan be mined separately. The latter can stand the lowered values of lower prices by restricting the milling to the portion of the

amusement and gratification of bis
grandchildren. By means of those
pictures they could form a frooly
clear idea of the plnces he visited
and thus keep in better touch with
his movemets. This incident throws
a sidelight on the charaoter of the
king which is creditable to hiin as
it reveals that amid liis many cares
and the most weighty responsiiblities
be yet hnd time to think of his grand-
children and to send daily comnuini-
oat ions to them. The use ot these
cards hns become so universal in some
parts of Europe that they have
assured considerable importance. This
is shown by the action of the Greek
government in securing �� monopoly
nf the business of making them, and
it hss issued cards with M different
views of famous oities and other
views. These are largely usee by
tourists who send them to their
friends at home so that they mny
form an idea uf the ancient cities and
notable places through whioh they
are touring.
Enterprising citie9 elescwhere aro
using the pictorial postal card as a
means of advertising. The private
postal card, with a ono cent stamp
attached, is privileged to go anywhere that a government postal curd
enn go. The people of Nelson should
get up postul enrds containing views
uf the city and they should ho placed
on sale at thc stationery stores. Besides general visws of N'elson variety
conld bo secured by having views of
.Haker btreet, tho Hall Mines smelter,
ind characteristic views of the plants
if   the leading mines in this vicinity,
partner and without demanding* nny
other consideration than continuous
and faithful service. The desire of
all men is to provide for old nge nnd
this is one of the main reasons which
impells men to strive to secure a competency before tho time of usefulness has departed, and the pension
granteJ by the company makes this a
eeitaiu"-y, and hence it is obvious that
the advantages which the company
will reap from the plnn will bo quite
ns gient as that which it gives. This
is no new experiment, it has been
tried and found to operate successfully by other large corpirations in
Europe as well as on this conntinent.
It has proved successful nearly al
ways, as it redounds to the advantage
of the corporation or individual wbo
adopts it. This bas been so much the
oase that the wonder is that the
system is not more geneial.
Tho investigation to determine tlio
cause of the lass of the steamer Islander, which is ill progress at the coast,
is proceeding slowly. So far it seems
to be established that the steami r was
running at full sped when the collision occurred, the passengers were
not promptly aroused after the
collision, the boats woio not immediately launched nor kopt under control
of the ship's ooinpuny until all of the
passengers had an opportunity of lev-
ins; themselves. The short time that
elapsed between tha striking of tho
submerged ice bank and the sinking
of the  steamship and   the time of tl
tho   falls   at   Honnington   and   other I disaster at an early hour in the morn-
points of   interest.     The sale of theso  ing pievented much   from being doue
could   be   pushed   as much as possible  that would   have been bad there beeu
by tho merchants   and   others  inter-j more time.     Enough evidence will be
Bsted in the  city.     It   would   be  an
ensy nnd not a costly   matter, too, foi
Arms   to   have their   private   pictoral
postal curds.  If this plnn were curried
out  systematically   it  should pruvo a
splendid       method       of    advertising
Tho pictorial postal card is spreading. It is related of King Edward,
wno recently returned from the continent, that h.s grandchildren received
from him every morning during the
time that he wns nwny one or more
pictorial post cards giving a view of
the place from which it was Written
or II notable building or bit of sceneiy
in the vicinity. This incident shows
that the ruler of the great British
empire is an afleetionat     family man
The directors ot the Canadian
Pacific Railway at the last annual
meeting recognized the desirability of
making sume provision fur the pensioning of faithful ollicers und employes, who, after 11 lung term of service become incapacitated for their
respective positions by tcason of
advanced nge, by sotting aside. (USO,-
000 as the nucleus of u pension fund to
be used for pensioning the ollicers
and employees. The dlectors have
not yot succeeded in formulating a
plan for the administration of the
fund, hut now, that the nucleus for
the fund has been provided,  doubtless
iho details tor its administration will
soon be arranged. Tho iden wns suggested by Sir Thomus Sliiuiiflinessy,
president of the company, in liis annual report submitted to the directors and was by them adopted,
This is one of the wisost nnd most
humane steps Hint hns yet been tnken
by the munngement of the (.'. 1'. li.
anil while it mny be thought to represent a loss to tiie compuny, still this
loss will, W8 sincerely believe, be
more than compensated for by the
gnin which the company will make
in tho way of increased ellicicncy of
service and because it will not in the
future be so liable to lose its more
valuable man who are more likely to
remain with a company when a pension is assured them in old age thun
if thnt incentive fur faithful nnd
steady service wns not held out to
tbem. Besides tbis, enoh employe
will feel thnt he has a diiect pcisonnl
interest in the affairs of the coinpany
and therefore, will work untiri'igly
towards making it successful.
The company in holding out the
Inducement   of a pension makes   each
scoured on which to found a verdict,
but so far but few facts beyond those
published at the time of the accident
have been brought out. The main
benefit to be derived from thu investigation will be to piovido some Iitlio
data as to how a like emergency may
he met in thc future with the least
loss of life.

Young Man Passes Away.
The many friends of J. K. Stiaehan,
city clerk of Nelson municipality,
will loam with deep regret, of the
great loss which he has sustained
through the untimely death of his
son, Harold J. Stiaehan, which oc*
curred yesterday in St. Mary's hospital in Sun Francisco. For ovur it
year past young Strachan hud been
Buffering from hernia and went from
Hod Illult* to San Francisco on Wednesday last for the purpose of having
an operation performed. It is supposed that he succumbed to the shock
of the operation.
Tlio deceased had been connected
with bis brother,Ernest,in tbo plumbing business lu this city for the past
three years and was well and fnovr
ably known in the business circles of
the eity. He was an enthusiastic and
energetic    member    of   tbe   Haptist
chinch of this city, and during the
time ho resided lietc held several
offices of trust connected with the
work of the church. Ilo took great
pride ill Sunday school work, was a
most successful teacher and won the
love of the children in his class.
Owing to failing health young
Stiaehan went to California about
four months since and after traveling
about he found himself to bo so much
Improved that he accepted a position
at Red Muff In a sash ami door fae-
tory a month ago. All the communications which have been   received   from
him were of u most encouraging nature, until Saturday lust when Uev.
J. II. Morgan, pustor of the Baptist
chuurh, received a letter from him iu
���whicli he stilted that his old
trouble lu.it recommenced and that he
was leaving for San Francisco in half
an hour where lie intended to enter u
hospital for the purpose of having un
operation perfoimed, Tbo next Intelligence roceived was in tlie shape of a

If them is any donut about making

food, tbe dootor should make the foi
lowing experiment,
Helen Prances Huntington of
Gainesville, Ha., says: ".Inst a word
of commendation concerning (irape-
��� Nuts, which I have found to be the
most wholesome, nourishing and appetizing food that has ever come to
my knowledge,
I am not a dyspeptic, but Imng
Constantly engaged in severe brain
work I found thut I did not thrive on
ordinary diet; even a moderate dinner
dulled my brain ho as to be piactically
incapable of critical work. I tried
meat-juice, peptonoids, the two meal
system, of light breakfast and no
supper which brought on nervous depletion and sleeplessness, so I resorted to one ami another of ibe various
health-foods which al! seemed alike
tasteless and valueless as a brain
food, until quite by chance, had a
dish of lirape-Nuts food served as a
I liked it so well tbat I began to use
it daily, for supper lour teasponfiil
on a saucer of hot milk eaten before
it dissolves to mushiness.
This   point   should   be   remembered
s, after a certain   time,   evaporation
seems to affect the sweet nutty   llavor
of   lhe   food   as in the ease of certain
One-flavored fruits.
Tbe reBuIt in my case was simply
astonishing. I bad no desire whatever
for sweet pastries, meats, or in facl
anything else; and my brain huh as
clear and active at night as on waking from a long refreshing sleep.
Tho peculiar advantage about
Grape-Nuts food is tbat it supplies
Iho nutritive qualities of a varied diet
without the bad results cf heavy
eating. I cheerfully recommend its
use to all brain workers, if not as an
exclusive diet, certainly foi the last
meal of the day. I always take it
with me when traveling, which saves
a deal of annoyance an.! discomfort."

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity oi the stove, and in connection with the deflectorjring forces the
heat to. the lloor. Thc base is hot, thc lloor being warmer than w'th n
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
ol lire pol, over lire, thus consuming .-ill the gases and products of combustion. 11 can he operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control ol the sti ve with nearly perfect combustion.
lhe large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the hack takes the cold air from
We lloor and elects it intensely heated, through the top ad.'ing greatly
to the heating capacity. ' h
Where the stove is operated according to directions'we guarantee il to
consume all the gas contained in soft eoal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly temarkab'e saving of
lue ovei any other stove on the market. The s'tov. will hold Tire from
^4 to 4�� hours without attention.
