It is a notieable fad that when
any information is desired about a
town or country where the in-
-piirer is not acquainted, the first
thing thought of is to send ami *_>-t
the local newspaper. Kvervliody
knows that this is a fact. We do
not know ofa better way. If you
want to do busine..- in a Strang**
town, the local newspaper is
sought for. It is a reliable index
to the business capacity of moat
any town. The local paper helps
every iudustry: it is always work,
ing for the beat interest.- of home.
If you are interested in your home
town,even if your local newspaper
is not a* big a- some of the big
Eastern sheets, is not the home
pa[,.er worthy of your patronage?

evidence to convince one they did
not belong to the infant das*. The

$82.60 for spa ved cows, and $20 tor
Mr. Burns is now killing about
seven hundred head of cattle a month,

out monthly for meat over $50,000.

Tbe beginning of regular business
advertising started wite tbe publication of the newspai*er, and all the
methods of advertising before the introduction of the newspaper must
have been of the crudest form, and
limited to written wonls and vocal
Commercially speaking, the first
advertising appeared in the newspaper, and the newspaper at the
start rightly constituted itself the
original medium of advertising:.
The newspaper is a natural and
necessary article ot publicity.
The object of advertising is to let
people know that there is something
for sale and to state where that something can be found.
The newspaper reaches the buying district.
It cannot reach any other territory.
Its circulation must be confined to
those who can read, and to those who
are sufficiently intelligent to keep
track of the motion of the world.
Tbe magazine offers a most effective method of advertising and ranks
with the newspaper in general publicity, but the local newspaper was. is
and always will be the only indispensable advertising medium for
local advertisers.
The local advertiser depends upon
the local paper tor his trade, and the
best advertising medium is that
which reaches the trade; and if the
newspaper be halt decent it cannot
help reaching the trade.
The newspaper reaches the home,
forces its way into the inner chamber
and there quietly and persistently
does the work of anvertising.    ���*
Many other ineediums of publicity
are worth trying, but the newspaper
because it is a newspaper, and because it must be read, presents a
method of advertising at once thc
foundation ot all good advertising.
The newspaper is a natural ndver
Using medium.
Tha advertisment in a newspaper
must be read, if it is large enough,
well written and well set
The reader of a newspaper cannot
read his paper without involtarily
reading a part of the advertisraents.
The argument  in  favor of uews
paper advertising has never been defeated in the forum uf business.
The fact that W per cent, of all
successful local merchants are extensive local advertisers adds the
proof of practice to the proof of theory
that the newspaper is the one neces
sarv medium ot local advertising,
and must stand at the head until
���something gets ahead of it.
The successess of the local world
are "in the newspaper") the failures
are "never in it.

Speaking of the bright pfoopoBM

in a letter to the Vancouver World
enthusiastically remarks:
A glance at the map of British
Columbia will show what an immense
area is enclosed in the fork of the
Columbia and Kootenay rivers. This
area is larger than a New Kngland
state; a province itself. It includes
the Lardeau. the Slogan, the Ainsworth, the Fort Steele  and other dis
tricts. Put in this extensive region
are found the richest and meat won
derful lead and silver mines ever yet
discovered. The North Star and St.
Eugene, in the Fort Steele district are
phenomenally rich galena iniueMiud
will yield untold millions to reward
enterprise, capital and labor. The
Crows Nest Pass railroad will run
through the St. Eugene ground, and
when that railroad is In operation the
North Star and St Eugene will be

Thc Slocan Star, the Reco, the Ruth,
the Noble Five, thc Washington and
half a dozen bouanza galena mines
of this district are enriching even at
the present stages of development,
their fortunate owners. These Kootenay galena mines have had their
vicissitudes. T hey were first discovered by Colorado mining men
seven years ago. and their development began a year or two later.
Spokane and Idaho mining men were

sphere of action. In the area confined between the Pend d Oreille and

TuEGreat Ibex Company of Slocan,
as it is called, do business something
like a circus.   They have a property
away up in the snow in the Ainsworth
mining division of "West Kootenay,
in which they are anxious the public
should become financially interested.
With a cunning that is high grade
they start out to take advantage of
the name Slocan made famous by a
different class of men than are usually
found selling beautiful stock certificates.   With a loud parade and  a
great  display of printers ink they
jump into the  arena at Winnipeg
with James Laut as financial agent,
and  the  shekels come pouring in.
Then the show shifts to Toronto, the
great home of the stock fool, and in
order to tickle an appetite already
waning from an overdose of Rossland
stocks a huge chunk of galena is put
on exhibition and the Toronto public
gape at it in wonder, while the stock
grafter smiles and tells them "There's
millions  in  it."    Some  believe  it,
especially after reading in one of the
lying dailies of that city that one of
the owners of the Ibex had an offer
of $00,000 for an eighth interest.
Creat Scott! What suckers these
mortals be.
Then on to Montreal and the Creat

We hope that the Ibex will come
out alright, as the cleverness displayed by the company in advertising
is worthy of some reward.
In the purchase of inining shares
there are two things to Ik-considered :
Are they promoters' shares, or are
they treasury shares ? And no one
should purchase a single share of
stock unless this distinction is clearly
made and as clearly understood.
Promoters' shares is that proportion
of the total number of shares taken
by the promoters or men who organize and float the company, and whatever money these shares sell tor goes
into the pockets of the promoters,after
paying for the mine. There is no
obligation attending the sale of promoters' shares, by which any portion
of thc money received shall be expended in the development or the increase of the value of the mine, and
in a new mining proposition, or company, those buying shares and exacting their money to be devoted
to opening or improving the original
property, should  carefully comprehend this distinction.
Treaen-   shares arc those remain
ing after tne promoters' shares have
been taken out, and hs an average
the treasury shares are about one
fourth the entire number of shares is
sued.   These shares are sold for the
express purpose  of developing  the
mine,  purchasing   machinery,   and
generally to increase the value of the
property, and with tie ultimate ob
ject of putting the mine in shape to
ship ore, pay expenses, and eventually pay dividends.
In view ot the fact that most com
panies  make   a  pool   or   contract,
whereby none ofthe promoters' shares
shall be offered on the market for a
specified time treasury shares sell at
a higher price, and do not fluctuate,
being controlled   by   the  company.
But when some prompter,  ignoring
the pool, throws a large block of stock
on the market, the price of ill the
shares  fall,   ftot   because   they are
worth any less, but because there is
no demand at the moment tor such a
quantity of those shares.
If this distinction between promo
ters' shares and treasury shares lie
understood the buyer knows just
what he is purchasing and his interests would be still better served did
he insist that all treasury shares be
so stamped across the face, and also
made preferred in the matter of dividends until a certain percentage has
been paid to tbe holders of treasury
shares. This is evidently but just,
because the buyer ol treasury shares
is in reality putting his money up to
open the mine, and his is the greater
risk, hence he should at least receive
the first profits.
It is a common expression here that
such an one came into the camp on a
"shoe string" and is now worth $K)0, -
000. It does not mean that a man
walked into camp on a shoe or any
other kind of a string; nor does it
indicate he came in at the other end
ofa string. It simply means a man
came into this camp some months ago
with a capital so small, compared
with what he now has, that his
original capital bore the same ratio
to his present capital that a shoe string
does to a pair of shoes.
When such men came here they
stretched their shoestrings straight
and taut, and they used their shoe
string as a straightedge to try their
work, and naturally they succeeded.
There are many examples of such
men who amid to day sell their holdings and retire rich men.
There is another class, however,
who came in on a shoestring, but
their string was so crooked they have
only a piece of the original left, and
that is fast going too. They tie their
string in so manv hard knots, by
their tortuous ways, that it is hard to !
find either end of the original string j
In purchasing shares in a develop
ment company, the buyer knows his
money will l>o used far ihe purchase
and development of new claims, and
buys with that understanding. This
form of investment offers excellent
chances for profit if the manager! be
men of standing and integrity These
companies use the shareholders' money to make money, ami the promo
ters make mailing until the mines
they purchase become paying mines.
A oiRKKsrosi'KST writing to "In
dustrial Canada" from British Colum
bia says i
It's mines,mines,mines! It's monev,
money, money ! Its a shaft here,  an

J, V, Sybrandt. *>t Springdile, says
the Denver Mining World, siys that
an enterprise of considerable magnitude is now Iving cnaried on there,
engineered by t incinnati parties. It
is the UJIISUllllliisnCl tunnel through
the large mountain lying between
Springdale ����n .James creek and Kow-
ena on Lett Hind creek. The tunnel
is now in alim*st 100 feet ami is being
pushed as last as three shilts a day
can push it. The entire length will
l��e a mile and a halt. A number of
good mines are expected to Ih* cut by
this tunnel.
A lainous astronomer, whose knowledge ol arthtnetical tacts was a

Like many other inining camps
now known, chiefly for their quartz
leads, Trout lake mining division
was tirst brought into notice through
its placer gold. On the main riverjof
the camp,the Lardeau, signs still exist which show that it was worked
many years ago, but it was totally
abandoned till the period oi general
activity brought ahout by the C.l'.K.
construction in 1986-86. Then the attention of a few plucky prosectors
was turned to it and from that till last
year, has been worked intermittently, with, on the whole, average results.
The country generally is overlain
by great bands of stratified rock,
singnlarly regular in strike and dip.
These rocks are chiefiv chloritic
schists and massive limestone. The
strike is northwesterly and the prin-
ipal veins conform with the banding
of the rock so strongly that groups of
a score of claims in a line are located.
This is particularly true of the
limestone and schist contact on the
divide between the I*ardeau and
Duncan rivers. On the west shore of
the lake and at its foot the formation
is granite and slate.
The gold found in the Lardeau
river is slightly "rusty," not sufficient
however, to interfere with amalgamation. The whole bed of the river
and its benches contain coarse and
tine gold, and alluvial deposits occur
all along the main river and its
branches, offering in some places oj>-
jiortunity of hydraulicirg.
The (ireat Northern, one of the
earliest locations, is now one of the
leading mines. It is situated, with
eight others, on the Great Northern
lead on Bald mountain. It was bonded with the Hillside to the present
owners in 180"), and work has been
steadily pursued to the present time
when, it is reported, it has been sold
at a big future to an English syndicate. Itwss opened by a crosscut
which hit the lead at 80 leet and disclosed a four foot vein. Tunnels and
drifts have been driven and run for
about I'rOO feet on the lead, which h
about 40 feet wide. About 400 tons
of ore are on tbe dump and some is
now being forwarded to the smelter.
The ore on this claim carries a great
percentage of grey copper, in cases
about 20 per cent. The average assay, however, is 150 ounces silver, 10
per cent, copper and from $2 to $15 in
gold. This is a wonderful property,
and if a railroad were in would lie a
large producer.
The Breed view, under bond to the
Hornc-Payne Co., is another develop
ed property on the (ireat Northern
lodge. A camp has lxvn erected, a
shatt sunk abont 120 feet on the ore
and a tunnel driven for depth alout
120 feet. The ore is ol splendid quality and very similar to that of the
tireat Northern. Considerable ore is
already on the damp, which will average about or over $100 to the ton.
The ore body is of great width snd it
is a very valuable property.
On the Phillipsburg, Old Sonoma
and True Fissure, (merited by the
same company, a lair amount of
work has been done and is to be continued this year. Thc Old Sonoma
lias a crosscut in six feet, tapping the
ledge', and the average of tne ore is
145 ounces silver, li per cent, copper
and $5 in gold per ton. The True
Fissure has hud mneh surface work
done, the ore outcropping on the sur
lace 50 or 60 feet across. This has
been stripped and about 50U tons put
on the dump. Other claims on this
lead are the Silver Queen and Banff
upon which ordinary opening work
has been done, everything going to
prove thc wealth ofthe lead.
The Silver Cup has the  distinction
of being the first shipper of the camp.
It is situated on   the south fork of the
birdcall, upon a strong lead about :��<>
teet wide with a vein of clean   ore
about two leet thick.  The ore is vei y
rich, the average assay trom the hist
shipment  mad*'   last   winter   Ix'ing
about 4*00 ounces of silver, 10 per cent
copper  and  $20 gold per ten.    The
average value oi shipments so far is
about $250 per ton.    A shift has been
extended to 90 teet this year ind a
400 toot tunnel, to  tap the ore  body
at a depth below the shaft liottom of
100 feet is now being run.     It is now
almost in ledge matter, ami may   hit
the ore body any dav.    This proper
fcy is certainly one of the first rank,
and is operated by Dunn A Farnll.ot
Vancouver.      It Is Crown granted.
The Free  Coinage,   owned   by   the
same people,  adjoining the Cup,   is
QOinen somewhat and gives indica
tions ot being a good property.
Other promising properties Bpon
this group and upon which develop
ment has been done are the Morning
Star and Brewster ..v. McAuley which
go very high in geld. A trail was
built last tall to tli's group from the
valley ofthe south fork. Abont ten
claims are located on this lead and
several others, aliout tivc, are located
back of it.���Rcvelstoke Mail.
