and Prospects In This
District.
The report of the Ymir (lold Mine.,
Limited, for the year 11)1.0 shows very
good results.
^-The manager's report says: "The
Hew battery of 41) stamps war, put in
operation a little before July 1st, but
during June the whole mill was hung
up for practically three weeks in or-
dei to connect the new and old parts
am' rearrange shafting and various
parts of the plant. Dining July and
August the old battery was being extensively repaired, and during the
latter month we suffered from an
accident to the engine, at a time
when tho water for power was at a
very low stage. Again in November
the heavy countershaft throngh which
the wator and steam power systems
���join, was broken. All of these, together with other delays, such as are
caused by freezing anil accidents to
the Hume line,have n ade inn mill record one not to be looked upon as an
example of what wo may hereafter expect."
The total work done in the mino
was equivalent to 80 stamps running
210 days 10 hours. The oro crushed
was 42,000 tons, an average of 2.40
tons per stamp per day. The ore taken from the mine was 43,005 tons: of
this 83 tons were crude galena, 42,000
tons were passed through the mill,
and 322 tons were on hand at the
elose of the year. The concentrates
ma.ie were 2.mo tons.
The products of the ore smelted were
li301,980 lbs.lead, 40,859 oz silver and
15,584 oz. gold. The total value was
1370,013. or $8.88 per ton. The working expenses were 34.84, leaving a
profit of $4.04 per ton. The expenses
were as follows:

the vein by the end of tbe current
year, some four months before it is
possible to work out the reserve8
above No. 3 level. The engineer reports the vein above No. 3 level to be
wider than he had originally calculated upon, thus increasing his estimate
of the ore reserves. Cotsiderablc time
and attention had been devoted to the
question of applying the cyanide process for the treatment cf the mill tailings. Tests upon a fairly large scalo
have been made with a satisfactory
result, and a small plant for treating

��� Total $200,880       $4.8402
The report, as issued from the London office says: "It is with much
satisfaction that the directors are able
to refer to the fulfilment of tin
scheme for doubling tlie output of the
���nine without having had recourse to
any increase of tne capital of the company,'the profits made having been
more than sufficient to defray the
whole of the expenses In conned ion
threrewlth. Owing principally to delays in the delivery of the material, it
was found impossible to have the new
40 stamp battery ready for operations
until the latter end of June, and it
v~as not for some two months later
that the complete mill of 80 stamps
was able to eoinmence woik.
"The accounts presented show that
after writing off ..5,000 for development, depreciation, interest on loan
raised for the new plnnt.and charging
against the year's revenue the whole
of the heavy administration and other
charges consequent upon the additional machinery, etc., including extensive repairs to the old battery, a net
profit of ��30,928 remains, which, added to the ��10,031 brought forward
from the 1809 accounts, makes a total
of ��40,959., As the greater part of this
, profit has beon reinvested in tho
mine It was not available tor distrij
" button, and consequently the balance
js carried forward, and an interim
dividend of Is per share was declared at the end of January on account
of the profits for the current year.
Thc carrying out of the important
additions to the battery and mine necessitated a complete reorganization
of its working arrangements during
the continuance of mining nnd milling operations,�� occasioning unavoidable delays, which not only increased
the  working   expenses,   but   reduced
Ernest R. Woakes, of this city, contributes the following to the Canadian Supplcmnt to the Engineering and
Mining Journal:
In the issue of April 20th under the
heading of Mineral Industry in Hritish Columbia, a short notice ia given
of the shipping mines in the districts
under review. In several instances I
notice omissions of well known producers, and believing you wonld wish
to have Ihi- list as compete as possible
I beg to give you brief partiulars of
those shipping mines in which I am
particularly interested, hoping that
others will supply similar information concerning those mines not mentioned in your correspondent's review. In the Slocan District the
Qneen Bess Proprietary Company,
Limited, has been a regular shipper
for the last three years and has paid
two dividends. Particular attention
has been given to development during
the last 18 months with the result
that a deep tunnel 1700 ft. long has
been driven and ha. tapped the vein
400 ft. below the previous wort ings
with which it is connected by a shaft
and raise and the intermediate levels
are now being driven so that it is expected that thc mine will shoitly be in
a position to very materially increase
its regular monthly shipments.
In the Ainsworth District the Highland (Kootenay B. 0.) Mining Company Limited commenced operations
last year and fully equipped the Highland and Josephine mines with aerial
tramway and a 180-ton concentrator.
Unfortunately the fall in the price of
lead occurred just nt the time that
the concentrator was run this spring;
700 tona of silver lead concentrates
were shipped; it was then decided
to stop further shipments until better
prices could be obtained.
Under the Nelson heading your correspondent states that the Athabsca
and the Whitewater have been "the
only producers during the past year."
This statement is certainly open to
inayn corrections and why the Whitewater mine of the Ainsworth division
should be singled out. of the many
shippers in that division is hard to un
derstnnd. The Granite Gold Mines,
Limited, situated within six miles of
Nolson. commenced to run their 20
stamp mill in Marchl 1900. This
mill, by the way, with the exception
of the Wililey tables Is entirely of
Canadian manufacture. It was put
up by the William Hamilton Manufacturing Company, Limited,of Vancouver
and Peterboro Ont. in the fa'l of 1809
During the 13 months ending April 3
30th 1901 that this mill has beon in
operation 14,940 tons of quartz have
been crushed yielding 0305 oz, bullion
and 478 tons of concentrates which
have yielded a gross value of $105,915.
The oro treated is very free milling,
tho average percentage of extiaetion
by amalgamation and concentration
during the above period was over 80
per cent. Preparations are now being made to open up the mines in
depth and so to increase the ouptut
and at the same time to increase the
mill from 30 to 40 stamps. The above
mines are all operated by the Duncan Mines, Limited, of Nelson, and
I think it must have been through an
oversight on yonr correspondent's part
that they were entirely omitted from
the list of sbipping mines in the dis
trict.

The first celebration of Victoria
Day, and the first event of thc kind
since her Majesty's decease, is now a
thing of the past. Nelson, never behind, celebrated tho day with her
usual enthusiasm, and everybody except Chmamen observed the day in
some form or another. However fine
the days may be prior to the 24th of
May, it is pretty safe to say that this
dny will be finer than them all.
This year was no exception to the
rule, and when Nelson citizens awoke
from their sleep to hear the singing
of the birds and find the bright sunshine beckoning them to participate
in the enjoyment cf a real spring
day, the boys and girls who had arranged with the sweehearts and other
relatives for the day's outing were
soou arrayed in their holdiay attire
and were early at the wharf lo drink
in the delight of a trip on the lake
and enjoy the beautiful lake scenery,
of which the people of British Columbia are so pardonably proud.
Before 8 o'clock the splendid new
IC. R. & N. steamer Kaslo had on a
full head of steam ana hove to at the
c ity wharf to take on her cargo of
living freight, and 8 o'clock she
proudly sailed out into midstream,
with 300 of Nelson's loyal subjects in
their holiday attire, and with their
lunch baskets, parasols and babies,
leaving dnll care behind them, in a
united effort to immortalize the name
of England's most beloved sovereign
and enjoy a surcease from the "daily
round and common task." A few
minutes prior to this, however, tbe C.
P. R. boat Kokanee sailed out with a
hundred passengers, likewise bound
for the neighboring town of Kaslo,and
as she hurriedly loosed her moorings
and got under way, those on shore, as
well aa those on board, looked forward to the first item on the day's
sport for a race between the rival
boats, and in tbis they were not disappointed, except in those cases where
some who were financially interested
had put up money on the C. P. R.
boat. The Kokanee had a good five
minutes Btart before the Kaslo very
leisurely cast her painter and lazily
followed her opponent. The C. P. E.
boat remained ahead until she was
out of sight of tho city, when the
Kaslo got down to business, soon taking the lead and arriving at her destination half an hour ahead of the
Kokanee, thus assuring to thc K. It.
& N. boat the reputation of being at
the present time the fastest boat on
the lake.
Arriving at Kaslo the day was spent
in taking in the sights of tlie ambitious lake town, where a good pi_-
ramuie of sports had been arranged for the ooeasion, and wero entered
into with zest by the visiting sports
and viewed with delight by thu pnrj
tizan spectators of the various items
of the programme. Thc expected baseball match between Rossland and Kaslo did not material!/.., but a match of
greater local importance to the people
of Nelson was played between the
Nelson and Knslo association footbnll
clubs, when after a game that was
fast and furious, and not devoid ol
some excitement, resulted in a score
of one eaoh, and the game being declared a tie.
In the ncquatlc sports the Nelson
boat the Myth carried off the first
place in the yaoht race and holds the
cup for thc year 1001.
Of those who did not tako in the
Kaslo trip, a much larger crowd
availed themselves of the opportunity
afforded by the excursion to Kokanee
creek,arranged by the Knights of Pythias. The Moyie was chartered,
making four round trips In the course
of the day, and taking a largo crowd
of pleasure seeaers on each trip.
Amongst tho number was a Miner reporter, who found the grounds a
Kokanee creek an excellent placo for
the occasion.    It is In fact  a   natural

Prospects for the Fishing Season on the Fraser
River.
Boys' Reformatory for Vancouver.���A Big Boom
In Cocaine.
(SPECIAL TO Tn_ MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C, May 24.���"We
don't want any more Seattle stiffB on
the Fraser river; that is what they
call them, I believe." These were the
words of Robt. Welsh, the salmon
canner, when asked regarding the salmon situation. Mr. Welsh says that
those fishermen who came over from
Seattle last yenr swore they were British subjects, and thus secured fishing
licenses, were responsible for the
disastrous strike which touk place last
season. He states that they aro suspected by the goveiment officials of
not being bona fide Britishers and have
heen spotted and will he refused li-
ceces, if this can be done legally; if
not, tbe canners will not buy any fish
from them. So that no whitewashed
Yankees need apply, although the naturalized Japs will be welcomed with
open arm~ The executive of the canners' association is now busy rating
the 50 canneries on the river. The
pack will be limited to a certain gross
amount, and each cannery will be allowed to put up so many fish only.
The number of boats on the river w.ll
be limited to 3,000. Last year there
���verc 4,500 on the river and this year
wilh no restraint there world be 5,-
000. The executive of the canners it
is thought will agree to pay an unchangeable price of 10 cents a fish for
the season, but will have the privilege
of telling each fisherman catching for
him how many fish he will buy {.that
day from him. The fishermen are very
tractablo this year. Tbey had a bad
year last season owing to the Btrike,
and this year no money has been advanced as the (-minors are waiting to
see what the t'shermon are going to
do. It is likely the canners will be
able to dictate thoi'- pwn terms, as
the fishermen are more eager even to
make up for the reverses of last year.
Mr. Welsh stated also that if this
year was not a good year ibat "75 per
cent, of the canners would go bust,"
as the hanks had been carrying them
over three bad years and had been
waiting for a good year to recover lost
ground,
BOYS' REFORMATORY.
Vancouver, B.C., May 24.���Mr. Julian,the architect, has received inslruc
tions from the government as to the
style of the hoys' reformatory desired
for Vancouver. Mr "Julian says that
he finds after exhaustive enquiries
thai the plan of the reformatories at
Lansing, Mich., arc tlie best he bas
seen as to beauty of architecture,
economy nnd convenience, and the
Vancouver reformatory will be built
on similar plans, Tlie plan is what Is
known as the cottage style. Ono cottage will be built lirst, capable of accommodating a governor, a teacher
and 30 inmates; as the needs for more
room iin iwis a second cottage will be
built and so on. The idea is to have
half an acre ot ground for each boy,
so that on starting the 53 acres set
aside for the reformatory is perhaps
ample, as the provinco grows more
ground will be requited. It Is tho purpose to teach tlie Inmates farming as
well as a choice of two or three
tradcB, thus making it easier foi them
to become good citizens.

Grand Fo'ks, Ii. C, May 84.���W. F.
G'Hara an engineer connected with
the topographical surveys branch of
the department of the interior, arrived in (ireenwood last Friday night
and will go down to Midway in a few
days and commence the work of re-
surveying the international boundary,
as agreed to by the inter,national
boundary commission.
The Canadian party operating in this
district will assemble at (ireenwood
wkere its strenirth wiii be made up to
12 or 15. Mr. 0'Ha:-a will be in complete charge, and his party will operate in conjunction with an American
party under the direction of the United States government engineers and
acting on lines laid down by tlie international commission. It is proposed to tarn- in the section of the line
from Midway to Similkameen river,
and it is estimated that witli normal
weather conditions this pert of the
work can be completed in the present
season, which extends to the end of
October. At the same time another
outfit, comprising parties of United
States and Canadian engineers, the
latter under the direction of Mr. J. .1.
McArthur, will operate from the coast
east. The task undertaken by the
International commission, lhat of relocating tho line between the two
countries, is one of very considerable
magnitude, and will probably require several years for its consummation.
The two sets of parties will act in
conjunction witli each other. At Mid
way Mr. O'llara will confer with the
chief of the United States party and
arrive at an allotment of the work ;
tlio principle being to have the respective engineers check each other's
work and take sections of the country
in rotation. Tlie detaii to be followed will be that of taking a system of
iriangulations on this side of the line
by tbe Canadian party and on the
other side by tlie United .Slates party,
together with photographic surveys.
the latter being a rapid moans of covering the gronnd wilh absolute accuracy and without the ordinary course
of surveying work. It is not generally understood that thu work carried
on by the suvi-ey parties of tlie respective countries is wholly of a preliminary nature. The engineers are on the
gronnd for tho purpose of determining the exact location uf the g .graphical line and reporting tlie Information thus obtained to the International commission whioh will then confer
nnd determine where the lino will
be placed. When this decision Is arrived at the line will he inniked by a
series of stono mounds distant from
each other about a milu. A straight
line will bo ran connecting these
mounds and the line will he marked
by a broad blaze ten or twelve feet In
width so that, no future doubt can
arise as to the status of land within
the area close to the boundary,

Vancouver, B. C, Mny 24.���The
steamer Amur arriving from Skagway
today brought the news thnt thc
town of Forty Mile had been buried
by tlie Yukon river. The inhabitants
had to (ly to the adjoining hills for
safety. A despatch from Dawson dated the 18th of May snys there is a big
jam of ice Hoes on the Yukon below
Forty Mile. It went in yesterday and
the town has been completely Inundated. The loss has been conservatively placed at 8100,1100, but it may
exceed that amount greatly. Only
meagre details are obtainable. Tlie
water rose with great rapidity, and
the inhabitants of the town bad barely time to escape with their lives.
Several narrow escapes occurred. As
an illustration of how fast the water
rose, Recorder White had to cut a
hole through his roof to >get tho records. Port Cudaby, across tbe river
from Forty Mile. Is also flooded out,
hut no particulars have been received.
Other damage is being done by the
Uoods. The Klondike river and Bonanza creek are on a wild rampage
and some valuable dumps have been
washed away and it is feared enormous damage will result if the water
does not subside very soon.
S. Ardeu Singlehurst was a passenger on the steamer Queen City from

news that he has struck a fabulously
rich vein of copper qnartz in Mr.
Gould's mine known as "Tne Ptarmigan." They had goie down on the

out and constantly getting richer. At
that depth they crosscut and stripped
the surface of the vein several feet for
its full width of ten feet, assaying
thc rock thus secured. This ore assayed 500 ounces in silver, 4 per cent, in
copper and two ounces in gold. Mr.
Singlehurst jumped on the first steamer available and hurried to Vancouver
to wire the news to his principal. lie
claims tbat he has secured for Mr.
Gould the richest quartz proposition
in Britisli Columbia. A wagon road
has been built to salt water aud a big
gang of miners will bo put oo to actively work the mine. Tlie strike baa

POR PROVINCIAL AUTONOMY.
People's minds in tlie Territories
are gettii.ft winked up to the conviction that the time lias about come, if
uot already arrived, when thfe. should
be given Provincial autonomy, This
feeling took soma sort of shape several years ago. and has been gradually growing from year to year since.
They hnve a considerable population,
for whose various and imperative
needs it is becoming more and more
difficult to provide witli the means at
present available. Those means, in
the general public estimation, are circumscribed by reason of tbeir status
as a Territory. They .ire looking for
relief to a transformation to one or
more Provinces, with their greater
powers and increased resources.
This aspiration of our neighbors
has naturally given rise to a good
deal of discussion, which lias not
been confined to themselves. The
creation of |new Provinces is a matter in which the entire Dournion has
an interest. The question has a number of features of general concern,
but one especially has been a subjee
of much comment. Whether there
should be one Province, or two, or
three wedged in between Manitoba
and British Columbia is a matter of
Federal as well as local interest.
The most intelligent opinion, that
is at the same time disinterested in-
interested in the broadest sense, leans
very decidedly to the view that a
multiplicity of small, weak Provinces
is a mistake. We have some very
Bmall Provinces in the East, but they
were established as actual working
entities long prior to Confederation.
That ia not a reason why other small
Provinces should lie established out of
tbe raw material. Quebec, Ontario,
and British Columbia pre more the
measure of what our Provinces should
be than Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. A
mistake was made in confining the
boundaries of Manitoba as they
were at the time that Province was
created, and the mistake being recognised the boundaries were considerably enlarged. Hut. even in that a
further mistake was made, as it is
now admitted that Manitoba ought to
have been larger still. In this belief it has been suggested that the
boundaries of the prairie Province
should be extended westward, to cm-
brace a portion of the Territories,
leaving the remainder for another
Province whose westerly boundary
should extend to British Columbia.
But this or any other suggestion of
loss of territory is resented by the
Territorial Assembly, which the other
day, by a large majority, protested
against it by resolution. The ground
was taken that in the disposition of
the question tlie people of the Territories were alone concerned. This is
not the case, of course, but in the
tinp.l settlement it is feared that the
Dominion Parliament will yield the
Claim, and the country will have two
or more Provinces, with ull their
paraphernalia and expense.

Speaking of the   lead   bounties, Tbe
Toronto   Olobe    says:    '-It    must be
said that it would be   a   suicidal policy on our part if   wo   allowed   interests on   the other   side of the line   to
crush   out     Canadian   industries    by
tariff   or   other   machinations.    Such
attempts   have   beon   made   in   other
cases, as we know.     A   familiar   one
is that   where Ontario sawmills   were
being rapidly   extirpated  by   a   high J
American duty on sawn lumber, while
logs   were   free.    A     similar    device
was   put   in   force on   manufactured
puip and spruce   logs.    An even more
highhanded   proceeding   is being attempted in regard  to   tbe   production
of lead, and if the   Dominion Government can   render that   attempt   abortive, as the Ontario   (Jovernment   has
rendered the other  two abortive,   our
neighbors may tire after   a   while   of
their attempts to   put those of our industries   which   threaten to   compete
with them at a disadvantage."

The resolution to increase members' indemnity was made retroactive.
It is a pity the amendment of tbe
Election Aet, to provide that a
marked cheque may be received by a
Returniug-Officer in lieu of legal tender, was not also made retroactive,
and thus relieve the member-elect
for West Durham of a very serious
injustice.
We do not know whether it is surgical or medical skill, but a Paris
doctor with an Anglo-Saxon name
has succeeded in increasing the stature of a Spanish girl by an inch, and
claims that he can make her still
taller. This is good news for. short
girls. There seems no limit to the
development of the sciences.
If the rate at which intermarriages
between the British and American
peoples are now being made is continued, it will soon be more correct
to speak of them as brothers-in-law
than as cousins.
The supplemental supplementary estimates brought the total expenditures

The Vancouver World experiences
no difficulty whatever in settling tlie
question of thu location of that assay
office which the Federal Government
are about lo establish. It says:
"In this Western part of Canada gold
Is not found in sufficient quantities
in any one locality to warrant the
establishment of the assay oflico in the
district where the mineral is mined,
except perhaps at Dawson. That
city though is far removed from thc
trajk of commerce, and for seven
months of the year is practically inaccessible, on account, of the winters,
which are extremely severe in the
Arctie Circle. Tlie Cariboo and the
Kootenav districts produce a considerable amount of gold, but in the former there is no city, and in the latter
a location would be as much removed
to the eastern side as one at Dawson
would be to tho northern. Vancouver
is.of   course, a central   point,   within
A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson, lie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pic,
when to his astonishment his nppe-
titin, which he bad lost fifteen years
ago in Ari/.ona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was mado from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just ns
good.    Insist on "The Morse Hrand."

KASLO NEWS.
Kaslo. B. C, Mny 34. ��� A
case of considerable interest lo
mining lr.-n, which has attra-ted a
great deal of nl tendon here nnd
which It wan expected wc.ulil be heaid
at the sitting of the court just ended,
was that of Fisher vs. Harris. Mrs.
Harris has just returned, and is much
disappointed that the matter had not
been settled. This seems to he another of thoso frequent eases where
the dog in the manger policy pnisued
by many prospectors hinders the
completion of a deal netting the owner* good returns for a pioperty that
la too heavy for operation without
capital, and which because of the very
opportunity to secure capital become
of groat value to some ono of the
owners. Mrs. Harris expressed great
confidence In her chances of winning the ensc,hnving Indisputable evidence of the questionable methods by
whleli this present litigation has
been originated and it Is now very
doubtful if tlie case wi|l over be
brought, up unless Mrs. Ilarirs does
so herself. There is undoubted evidence of the Intention of the agents of
the purchasing syndicate to handle
the deal for their own exclusive benefit { and thoir scheme to bluff
Mrs: Harris into coining to their
terms Is meeting with the defeat
that it deserves. Ilecausc she is n
member of the gentler Bex is not evidence that Mrs Harris is wlthou*. perseverance, ami knowledge of what constitutes upright and honorable business methods, Ily her kindness and
prob'ty in her interourse with her
many friends, Mrs Harris commands
the respect and admiration of all who
know her, especially for tho patience
and energy shown in handling ber
business under considerable difficulty.
During her recent vi=it to Chicago
and the east more advantageous otters
for the property involved in this litigation were received hy Mrs. Harris.
It is to bo hoped that the matter
will soon be arranged, as the need of
neeessary capital is retarding development in a most prouiir-.mg district.

Victoiia Day at Robson Celebrated in
an I'liiiMial Mannei-.
Two (ires and a burglary were the
preliminaries to the observance of Victoria Hay at Robson In the fiist year
of the reign of Edward VII. On
Thursday evening, after the force of
men now employed on the ltobson
bridge at (hum's ;ninp hnd retired to
their respective eouclie. about II
o'clock it wns noticed that the stable
was on Hie. The men at once arose
and soon succeeded in cstinuglshing
the flames. No sooner was this accomplished than it was found that
the office was also on file. The force
of men then directed their nttention
towards extinguishing the second evident attempt to destroy the premises.
No reason for such a wilful aud deliberate attempt at destruction was forthcoming at the time, and no trace of
the culprit could be discovered, as the
foreman of the works knew that the
full staff of the workmen, numbering
only four, were ail in their bunks at
t ie time of the first (Ire and assisting
in extinguishing the first fire whin
tire, seeond one was discovered. After
the fires had been extinguished and
everything had been again made se-
eire, one of the men, on returning
tj his bunk, discovered to his dismay
that his trunk had been broken open
and that he was poorer to the amoi.nt
of 8175. P, C. Forrester, of liobson,
wis communicated with and arrived
io the city yesterday, on the lookout
for a tramp who is suspected of the
depredations and who was seen missing at the Slocan junction on Friday
morning about 3 o'clock. Mr. Forrester celebrated his Victoria Day in
the vicinity of the smelter and railway
track, shadowing all suspicious looking characters, but at the time of
writing the missing man had not been
found.
BASEBALL, OAME-
A baseball match was played yestei-
day in the Nelson grounds between
the Nelson and Trail juniors, resulting in a victory for the visitors by a
score of  17 to 10.

"shiTquit-
But It Wan a Haul Pull
It is hard to believe that coffee will
put a person in such a ]condition as it
did Mrs., E, S. Brown, of Apple Creek
O.    She tells her own story ;
"I did not believe coffee caused my
trouble, and frequently said I liked it
so well I would not, nor could not
quit drinking it, even if it tock my
life, but I was a miserable sufferer
from heart trouble and nervous prostration for four years. I was scarcely
able to be around nt all. Had no energy and did not care for anything.
Was emaciated and had a constant
pain around my heart until I
thought I could nol endure it. For
months I never went to bed expecting
to get up in the morning. I felt as
though I was liable to die any time
during the night.
Frequently I had nervous chills and
the least excitement would drive sleep
away, and any little noise would
upset me terribly. I wns gradually
getting worso i.ntil finally one time
it came over me and I asked myself
what is the use of lieirg sick all the
time and buying medicine so that I
oould indulge myself in   coffee?
So I thought I would see if I could
quit drinking coffeo and got some Postum Food Coffoe to help me quit. I
made it strictly according to directions and I want to tell you Uiat
change was the greatest step in my
life. It was easy to quit coffee because I had the Postuin which I like
better than I like the old coffee. One
by one the old troubles left, until now
I am in Bplendid health, nerves
steady, heart all right and thc pain
all gone. Never have any more nervous chills, don't tako [any medicinei
an do all my housework and have done
a great deal besides.
My sister-in-law, who visitod me
this summer, hud been an invalid for
some time as much I was. I got her
to quit coffeo and drink Postum. She
gained five pounds in three weeks.and
I never saw such a change in anyone's
healtb, anyone by writing me can re-
eelve verification of these statements."

a splendid dancing platform 50x30
and a m monidiou. band stand. Refreshments of various kinds were provided for the inner man, for althougli
the crowd was out for a day's fun it
does not usually have the effect, of
eradicating the necessity of eating.
Swings, quoits and various other
games were provided bv the committee, to whom not a little of the success of the occasion is due. Une of
the attractions of the return trip,
was the Hying of a kite attached to
the hoat with (300 feet of string.
Another batch of Nelsonites attend

programme of sports was completed

The baseball match between Ymir
town and Ymir mines resulted in a
lively game of 12 to II in favor of the
town team, Other events, such ns
horse races, sack races, and other
sports were entered into during the
day, the proceedings terminating by
a *rand ball in tlie Miners-union hall.
The usual sports, for the stay at
home lads and lasses, which Is one of
the features of old times was participated in by the boys and girls, in bicycle and other races by the youth
and beauty of the oity, and the boys
who were debarred from entering on
account of their ago, exhibited their
manliness by small bets on their
favorite runners and speeders. The
races took placo on Haker street, in
front of Martin O'Reilly's store nnd
were gotten up by Mr. 0, A. Waterman, and the hat was passed around
among the spectators, who subscribed liberally to the pri es for tlie little
folks, and the whole proceeding was
an entirely impromptu character, and
lacked that cut and dried nature
wh.eh so frequently spoils affairs like
this.
