^   MINING   NOTES.   *
m
7F
The Fraser Kiver took a
drop too much one day, last
week. A Cariboo cool spell
stopped the supply of snow
water, and the river went
down 2 feet at i.iiiooet, so
the Jowa Dredge was idle a
couple of days. Funny to see
a great digging machine on
a bar helpless. It seems to
the ignorant mind as if il
could dig a hole and crawl
into it. Many dredges have
been stranded, financially, S_
at the same time in the hole.
The book-keeping in Iowa
was too rapid for the dredge
and to keep up, it left the
spot where the trial run secured two or three thou' &
hastened to Horse Beef Bar,
to make a winning. When
low water came no place had
been thoroughly worked.

Hatchery Items.
Member Henderson of Ashcroft
who fought a good fight against
wigs, asked the government if
'twas true that an American is
running the Salmon Hatchery ab
Lillooet. The Premier arose and
stated the Province was benefiting by the experience of a very
competent expert, a Mr. Ledger-
wood. He might have gone on
tp say that California was the
home of the hatchery idea,; that
is why Americans are to be found
having a longer training.
J. Rowbottom, Mr. Evans, J.
Arthur, and 1). Fraser will be
busy aliout ten days, anchoring
the pipe which conveys cold pure
water from Seton lake into the
Hatchery.
E. J. Taylor will probably go

I regret to announce the resignation
of the Clinton correspondent Miaa Nellie

Joker., about two weeks ahead of April
Fool Day, caused a lot of annoyance to
correspondent and compositor.
The Districts immediately north and
South of us elected Liberal member.,

money, and raising cattle. Why not

wonderful climate fruit nnd game.
You all have an idea where Revelstoke
is, and may have teen a newspaper f um

di  r~T Ur..v'f~ »:> South Al'rifti."'
Excellent reports have been receh'-
cd irom thc different committees in
South Africa! of the work accam-
plishud in locating and caring for tho
Canadian soldiers' giavcs. "he difll-
cu.t.e.i which have be*jj encountered
and overcome have been many. Owing to the great distances and tho
uueettled state of the country, even
for a long period alter peace was da-
da. ed, transportation to certain
distrxts was, until quite recently,
refused tp travelers. Jn addition, tha
unusual climatic conditions, tho vagaries of the South Af. ican vegetation, "which at tome seasons has thu
vitality of Jonah's gourd, and at
others ihe apparent dryness of Aaron's rod," have all contributed to
make the work of tbe Guild of Loyal
Women of South Africa nn almost
impossible task. How faithfully the
guild has worked is shown in a report from tho secretary of the Central Committee, Cape Town, who
states that no single grave that
could by any reasonable possibility
be reached by members of the guild
has remained unvisited.
At Woodstock, Modder River, Wyn-
berg, Bioemfontein and other places
all the outlying graves, as wel- as
♦hose in the cemeteries, aie in excellent order, and decorated wuh flowers at Christmas and Easter by tha
branches in those places. At Wagers*
fontein and Paardeberg only a verv
few months ha.e elapsed since it wai
possible for ladies to visit tho
graves. Now the work is being pushed forward ax rapidly as possible,
and the Toronto secretary has received wry encouraging letters of
the progress made from the secretaries of tho branches in charge of
those graves. At Paardeberg several
permanent stoues have been erected
by relatives, through the agency ol
the Loyal Guild of Women.
Money has been sent from time to
time by the Imperial Order of
Daughters of the Empire for nil Canadian graves, and with special instructions that the Canadian graves
at Paardeberg and Hart's Kiver be
put in order without delay at the
expense of the Canadian fund. Up
to date the amount sent to South
Africa by tho l.O.li.E. totals i850,
the rest of the fund subscribed having been invested, the income therefrom to bo expended annually for
the care of the graves.
I n.-im. i
Th* Next Gown.
From one extreme to another is
characteristic of womankind. After a
series of pads all round—pads that
always seem to me to invite a thorough good and well-deserved spanking—next spring we are to be treated, according to the fashion-mongers,
to "skin-tight gowns, that will hav#
no hips." 'Ihis decree is seemingly
promulgated at this season in order
that every woman may have ample
time to remo-.e her hips. Of course,
this means only those cleverly designed, but not always deceptive
panniers, which at times creakinglv
betray their presence and make every
latitudinal protuberance to be regarded with suspicion. They will now
go to join thc bustle in the attic.
But no one can imagine that thu fair
sisterhood mean to wear "skin-tight
gowns" over a natural framework
that has not often been moulded on
the best lines of art. Tho dressmaker will now be put to tho pains
of designing a figure as- well as a
costume, and as a natural consequence, a diess may be two inches
ihick in one place, where it is only
hat of a sheet of paper in ant i her.
Clothes are no longer a matter of design and color combination. The
"occupant" of the coming drosu will
have to look as if she has been poured into it. It will bn with much
compassion that the masculine world
will look on this new development in
the farhions of their sisters. It
means that woman, poor woman, is
to be more uncomfortable and costly
than ever.—Captious One, "in Toronto

Mr. Alex. Lochore furnished u
long report for the Yenr Book,
from which the following extract
is taken :
The country mljnceiit to T.ytton is pretty rough aud hilly,
and there are no large areas of
agricultural hind ; although
there are a good ninny small
farms. The soil is principally a
sandy loani5 with, iu some place.,
alight mixture of clay, and is
very well adapted for the growing of Fruit) beans and potatoes.
Clover and alfalfa also grow
most luxuriantly, and iu some
locutions timothy does very well
us do also wheat, oats, barley
and corn.
Fruit is receiving a good deal
of attention, and there are some
good orchards in the vickiity.
The principal one is that of
Mr. Thomas G. Earl, about two
miles above the town, on the opposite sitle of the river. Mr. Earl
lias about tift^ucres planted to
fruit, containing over 3000 trees
and 1800 grape vines. Although
a good many of the trees are not
in bearing y&t, Mr. Earl estimates his crop for the current
year at 3500 40-1 h. boxes of apples and pears, besides a quantity of cherries, plums and peaches
The Indians own a good deal
of land in tlie vicinity, and grow
a large quantity of beans for
shipment. There are some ten
or twelve carloads shipped every
year, mostly the brown bean.
There are also considerable
.shipments of potatoes, principally to the coast markets.
About three miles up the Fraser the Rev. Geo. Ditcham has a
Hue young orchard and a large
planting of small fruits. There
is also a tine peach orchard,
where both early and late varieties are successfully grown. Mr.
Ditcham has two and one-half
acres in melons ami citrons, and,
besides 'supplying the local demand, ships both east and west.

J. W. PEARSON,
HUNTERS' GUIDE,
CLINTON, li. C,   Ap. 6th
To the Editor,
Dear Sir, In the Prospector of March
30th, I read a letter by a Mr. Wray, of
Bri.i.e River, regarding licen.ed guides
for big game hunters. I Mould like to
-ay through your columns, that I quite
agree with Mr. Wray, as far aa he goes,
but think be might go a little farther.
It ie my opinion that each and every
_tuide Bhouid pay a full licence, should
be a sworn game warden, aud that he
should afier each t'ip immediately fill
in a report of the exact amount of game
Killed on Ihe trip, and by whom killed]
and forward eame to the head waiden
at Victoria. These rules could be stipulated on every licence iseued to intending hunters, to free the guide from any
_,
blame which otherwise he might get
f oru his employer.
Certain kinds of our big game need
more protection than others, and I think
mountain sheep are of lhat class. They
are very litlle hunted for food, a. during
season they are very little good. But
they are the principal big game that
sportsmen come to B. C. to hunt, being
found in comparatively few places in
North America, or in fact in the woi Id.
Thi refore they thould have every pro-
i eet ion possible wilhout injuring the
sport of the chase. I say, make it an
offence punishable by law, for anyone to
kill a mountain sheep unless authorized
by licence, whether a resident of the
Province or not. Any well meaning
-ports-man and hunter that can afford
,o hunt big horn in this country, would
not object to paying a licence for the
piivilegeof doing so: knowing that he
would have more sport, with a better
chance of getting a good head. I have
.een offered for a mere tiifle, beads that
measured from 14 to 17 inches in circumference, by people who only killed them
because they had a chance, and after
wards found they were of value, and
offered them to any willing purchaser
for not more than perhaps $5. A good
sportsman, who has not had an opportunity to kill a good ram, would willingly pay $500 for an opportunity to kill
sin h a specimen. I am sure that any
one living in the Lillooet District for a
length of time, will bear me out in thia
statement. Should the present rate of
slaughter continue for five years, it will
be impossible to get more than a 14-inch
head in the Lillooet D s:rict< of in tbe
Province. When that time comes, the
hunters will cease to come* which will
be a sad loss to us all, and particularly
to Lillooet District.
Thanking you for your valuable space,

HYMN 573.
Stolen on Sunday from the
English Church.
All the bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All the wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made thein all.
Each little flower that openfe,
Each liltle liinl that sings—
lie made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.
The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God  made I hem, high and lowly
And ordered Iheir estate.
The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
Tne sunset and the morning'
That brightens up the sky,
The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant sun infer sun,
j The ripe fruits in the garden,
i lie made them every one.
I And gave us eyes to see them
And lips that we inight tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who doeth all things well.

Badly Crippled
with Lame Bad?
Was almost used up with
kidney disease, but euro
came with the use of
Di*. Chase's Kidney*
Liver Pills.
MR. Pjirre D'Astous, Farmer, St. Flavie,
Rimouski Co., Que., writes:—"For several
years I was troubled with a weak, lame, aching
back, and had become so crippled that I could
scarcely lift anything at all. I also had pains in
the arms and legs and began to consider mysell j
about used up at sixty-seven years of age."
"One day I rtceived a
book describing kidney
disease and its symptoms
and found out the nature
of my ailment. I began
using Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills and noticed a
marked improvement
when the first box was
finished. I continued to
use them from time to
Itinie and to-day I am real
well, entirely cured of
backache and kidney*
disease." Dr. Chase s
Kidney-Liver Pills, one
pill a dose, 25 cents a
lxsx. To protect you against imitations the
portrait and signature of Dr. A. W. Chase, tbo
famous receipt book author, are on every box.
Frightful Case of
Protruding Piles
Doctor wanted to burn them
with red-hot Iron—Cured by
Dr.    Chase's   Ointment.
Mb. Alex. McLean, Talbot Vale, N.S.,
writes:—"As section hand on the railroad, 1
was exposed to all sorts of weather, my health
failed and I became a victim of protruding piles.
Though a doctor treated ma
for piles, they only grew worse
and I was forced to give up
work and go home. My
sufferings could scarcely be
described, I could not walk
or lie down, and wh.le the
rest of the family slept I
would be groaning with excruciating pains."
I " The second doctor told
'me the piles would have to
be burned with a red-hot
iron, but I could not think
of undergoing such an operation, so he gave me a box of
MR. McLEAN salve, for which he charged
me two dollars, but did me no good. Mycl-
periencewith Dr. Chase's Ointment is that the
first application did me more good than d.'d th.
two doctors, and finally made me as well a.'i.".
free from piles as any man. Since being cured I
worked during the winter in the lumber wouds,
und had no return of my old trouble. Dr.
Chase's Ointment iv.*1, trolb one hundred dnlb.nk
