success means something to

On immediate success may
depend the continued residence of the ouly resident

removed to a larger field hy
the missionary authorities.
Success may mean the construction of another dredge,
and the residence of families

Conditions are now very like
1858, tlie Famous. The snow in
tlie mountains is lower than any
year since the famous rush ; and
gold will be taken out this season
that hns been accumulating for
nearly fifty years. Yale is the
first to feel the revival, nud has
quickly trebled iu population ;
and the hill across the river is
lined with flumes, for conveying
water to three large bars.
Joe Martin is having his book
of mining enses printed ill Toronto, by the Cars well Co. If you
want to know what like it is, call

It takes 5 years aud a million
dollars to make a mine. Some
rich men said to M. K. Rodgers,
"Go and find us a mine, any old
place." He decided there is oue
ut Hedley, a nickle plated one,
guaranteed to wear. There is to
be another one, iu Lillooet District, if tlie same niaiuigement
and methods count for anything.
That is the group on the Bonaparte, the Maggie Mine, uow being actively developed.
Gold is pouriny; into Lillooet,
and we think nothing of it. We
would rather listen co the birds,
singing iu the scented blossoms
of peach and cherry, or watch
the green, chasing the-snow up
the distant slopes. There is gold
coming from Bridge River, that,
is coarser than was ever seen in
Cariboo, by the old-timers now
living in Lillooet. Some of it wns
got by hard work in cold weather, drifting, and sluicing at zero,
with particles of ice thickening
the water. There are benches on

The seed can be secured by gathering the

Then clean the seed by using a sieve, or by

The Yale Review has a stirring tale
and true, by the Ashcroft editor; Francis
Astlet Webb, of a real trip' at tea, fifty
yeais ago.
The good Ship PeractvanUire,
One warm, bright slimmer day,.
Her sails all set, with gentle breeze,
Was slow ly making way;
With crew all told just twenty one,
And passengers a few—
Six men, three women, cbildien five,
To whom the trip was new.
The scene soon changes, and in
the 2_Jnd verse we find
A scene of bloodshed now ensued,
Tbe srtiall arms of tl 6 crew
"Were almo't uaeles., and the men,
Though dauntless were so few.
The good Bbip beat off thc pirates,
bttt 16'st 8 braVe fellows.
Mr. Webb is well known here, as his
daughter, Mrs. Dm ban, resides in the
town of Lillooet.
"three is a wonderful number. At the
Creation', there were land, water, and
ekv; Sun moOn and s'.ars. Jonah waw 3
days and nights in the whale's belly and
Jesus was S days in the tomb. There
were 3 patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob. Abraham entertained 3 angels.
Job had 3 friends, Samuel was called 3
times, Samson deceived Delilah thrice.
Saul attacked David 3 times. Jonathan
shot 3 arrows on David's behalf. Daniel
was thrown into a den of 3 lions because
he prayed 3 times a day. 3 Jews were
rescued from a burning. Faith, Hope
and Chanty are three. 3 wise men had
gold, frani_inc6nse and myrrh for Jesus.
tie was thrice tempted by Satan, thrice
denied by Peter, suffered three hours on
the cross ; tbe superscription was in 3
languages, and 3 men were crucified.
Christ arose the the third day, and was
Been by his disciples three times.
