The social status of any family can
be guaged most accurately by the person who answers the door bell. A
slatternly servant means a slatternly
mistress, or, what Is almost as bad, an
incapable one. For the mistress of the
house herself to open the door when so
apparelled thst she feels compelled at
once to plunge into a sea of apologies,
is a confession of incapability and bad
taste. The visitor who is received by a
speechless or unkempt cbrld also receives an impression of the household
that is. justly unflattering.
Fewer wives would sit loneaomely
snd disconsolately at home, while their
husbands roam elsewhere in search of
entertainment, if more wives realized
that home should be something besides
a clean place to eat and sleep in. Men
"hate" women's tea parties and large
show functions, but they like little dinner ��nd supper parties. Many families
refrain from entertaining because tbey
cannot do so on an expensive scale ft
is, however, possible to give small dinners snd suppers that are both enjoyable and inexpensive. Ask people who
either do or will like each other, snd if
yon wish the women to have a good

women guests If ths men are to have
a good time make sure that Hotneof the
women are pretty and flatter-in?. Men
like to be flattered.   Oh, ves, they do.

Perils and Trials or a Prospector's Ufa
la tha Jasper Pas*.
The Edmonton Bulletin in a recent
issue published a letter from a prospector, which illustrates the perils and
privations of the gold-bnnttr's life. The
writer is Frsnk A. Jackson. He and
aome companions hsd discovered something thst they deemed rich iu Ihe
Jsspr Psss snd were on their wsy out to
record it. Jackson kept s diary which
he forwarded to Edmonton to his wife
who lives there. Here are some extracts
from it in reference to their experiences
in the Yellow Head Pass:
"Camped in three feet sis inches of
snow; no feed. Burnt counUy; big logs.
Christmas night. Snow turning to rain.
We tied up our horses. This ts what I
expected, snd so prepared for s Isst
struggle to lower country with less snow
snd good feed, where we could be safe
with every horse we iett Edmonton with,
except the one left on the Macleod.
which we expect to pick up going back. 1
brought out the small feed of oats ws
hsd kept snd divided them op, then took
my pads, ripped them up and fed the
horses the little hay that was in them.
Next day it was raining heavily, snd ws
had to cross deep gulches with snow
slides on them. I was going up tlie side
of the gulch leading my saddle horse
when I heard a slide start. I dropped the
bridle reins and ran ahead over the trail.
I was not caught by the full force ol it,
but my hone was, and was buried in
it, but not injured We shovelled him
out. and tramped it tight, and so got the
outfit over. We camped that night on
a high bench. It waa dark and raining
furiously; no feed; everything burnt. I
had to watch tbe horses to keep them
from eating up the packs. We were
then only a day's drive from Tete Jaune
Cache ao leaving Neil to guard the packs
I decided to take the horses down lighi.
Here was more disappointment; more
snow slides and a big steep, rocky bluff
that sloped down to the river, which was
deep and partly covered with broken snd
floating ice. The pack trail cribbing
was torn out by a big anowsiide, tlie soft
snow resting on tbe water aod not firm
enough to hold up. Feed was near, but
no way to get it. We drove the horses
lack to where there was a little brush
and worked till 11 o'clock thai night
packing big chunks of snow in the crev
asses and tramping tbem down with our
feet. That night Uie wind blew furiously, timber falling all around us. A tree
(ell on one of the horses' back, hurling
him pretty bad. Next morning the snow
had frosen pretty hard, as we expected,
and tlie outfit got over safely. Then we
reached onlv six inches of snow. It waa
terribly cold. Two mutes f rose to death,
and McLaughlin frose his feet. We met
Price snd Evans next day, and are now
all right "

Speaking of the advancement of the

time was in the history of this camp
when tbe uncovering of a vein of ore,
45 feet in width, tike that recently
met in the Velvet, would have peopled
the hills in the vicinity of where the
bonansa was found with prospector*
Vet such an incident,as important as it
is, scarcely causes a ripple of excite-
mct, nud the landscape in the vicinity
of the Velvet is anid to lie unfretted to
anv great extent by tire feet of prospector's searching for new locations. This
is prohablv because it is thought that
���iM the g<>od ground in that vicinity is
This is not true,aa there is some good
ground in that vicinity thst hss not yet
been pierced by the posts of the locator.
Recent development in the Wallingford
group, where a vein of high grade ore
has just beeu uncovered,would Indicate
that rhe mineral sone in that vicinity is
verv extensive. Tbe Wallingford is
four mile*, from the Velvet, and yet it Is
claimed thst it ia on the aame mineral
sone. There are several Intervening
properties like Anaconda and Leiter on
rhtch work is being carried on. and
these doubtless will in time have luck
similar to that which has favored the
\ civet, the Wallingford and the Victory-
Triumph The only properties on
which any great quantity of work has
been done are tbe Velvet, the Victory-
Triumph and the Wallingford, and the
rp'ittlte attained are of a highly Mtisfac-
lory nature. The Velvet is conceeded

The Republic Pioneer has an article
condemning the over-booming of Republic Camp It says, for instance:
J'A great deal of matter is being printed
about Republic and the mines that is
ridiculous, pure rot in fact, and the
effect is to injure the camp and its prospects. Some people imagine that by
exaggeration they help development.
This wholesale lying about tbe camp is
the especial work of grafters. Plain
facts are enough for Republic."
With the opening of navigation a
large quantity of mining machinery
will be taken into the Seine River district. George J Ross, of the Canadian
Rand Drill Company, was recently in
Duiuth,where he closed a contract with
Col J. S llillyer, of the Alice A. and
Lucky Coon mines, for a large bill of
mining machinery for those mines, including a 4 drill compressor plant for
the Alice A, and a 7-drill plant for the
Luckv Coon A complete telephone
system will be put in between these
minee and Mine Centre.

and next this is 18 inches of solid steel

This properly is located on the Great

property are black slate No black

Karly   Mtnaesota   Mining.
Theearlist mining within the area
that now is Minnesota was by Le Sueur,
who in April, 1701, mined 90,000 pounds
of what he supposed to be an ore of
copper, from the bank of the Blue Garth
rivor or of the Le Sueur river near
their Junction, a few miles southwest of
Mankato. He sent 4,000 pounds of this
material to France. It was probably a
peculiar dark green shale, which outcrops beside the Blue Earth river, or an
equally remsrksble blue earth of the
same vicinity, which the Sioux need ss
a pigment, in either case worthless as
a source of copper of any metallic product.     �� ;__

The Centre Star has started fn with
its defense, and the evidence produced
to date consists largely of proving the
extensive plans ana models of the mine
wordings put in and of identifying
many samples of ore taken from different portions of the disputed ground and
elsewhere. The case will but for some

The Strike in Coeur d'Alene.
The Bunker Hill strike has taken
a serious turn and guns are coming
into play. On Wednesday morning
the non-union men were intercepted
on their way to work and driven out
of town by armed force, but afterward returned and the night shift
went to work without interference.
Several shots hare been fired but so
ar no fatalities are reported. Armed
sentries keep watch at the mine and
mill but no damage to the company's
property has been attempted.
The Bunker Hill mine pavs the
union scale of wages and charges
fl a week less for board than other
mines in the camp but refuses to
recognize the union. It is to forces
recognition of tbe organization that
the strike has been declared.
