The Lade Brothers, Vincent and Jim,
returned on Tuesday from tbe Lardeau,
where tbey bad been workiug this summer in developing their big gold-tellur-
ide property, the Ijftde group. The main
work done on tbis property this Beason
consisted of a cross-cut tunnel, which
will on completion cut tbo lead ut a good
depth, now in 72 feet. A specimen from
this group, showing free gold in plenty,
was forwarded to the Spokane Fruit Fair
and attracted mnch attention in the mineral exhibit. At the close of the Fair the
specimen WW taken to the Spokane
Chamber of Commeree, where it ia now
on exhibition.
This Benson has seep big improvements
made in the prospects in the Lardeau
<;ountry. More assessment work has
been done and the country opened up
more during the last year than iu all
other years combined and less relocating
lias consequently been done. The system
of relocating claims is felt as a drawback
to the Lardeau, as it is In the Slocan or
any other section. Mr. Lade tells, lor
example, of onesUker wbo holds claims
and interests amounting to the grand
total of 75. How an ordinary prospector
•is tbis mun is staled to bo, can hope to
•perform bis attiiual aises*n-*H*t-* is a
puzzle—if he intended to. Unfortunately the Lardeau has no corner on this
class of people.
J. D, O'Farrell, writing to Uie Toronto
Globe, touches tho quick in the following
references to tbe management of.the
Hall Mines and their smelter. Mr.
O'Farrell is "evidently an old timer in anil
around mining camps and knows whereof he writes. Ho says--The Hall mines
gave to Nelson iu lirrt boom. The
chief of then** is the Silver King. The
Silver King ledge contains oro enough
to run a largo smelter for a hundred
years and about 200 men are employed
by the mines and smelter company.
The ore is low-grade about 16 ounces of
silver, 2 or '" per cent copper and a dollar
or two iu gold. - That is about $11 o.r * 12
ore. In the mining, smelling and
dressing of this class of ore there is a
fair in-ruiu of profit, provided there i.s
economical miuing and capable smelter
nianaueineut. The Anaconda company
makes over $5,000,000 a y>*ar profit ou
ore uf similar value, but then the Aua-
i-onda Company is maun j-ed by Marcus
Daly, and the Hall Mined Company is
managed by a London 1-o.n.l. Therefore
the Hall Mines Company hss only paid
one dividend.
To-day I was admirim? tho talent of a
mine manager who built a mill for
treating free-milling ore ou the crest of a
mountain close to Nelson. He spent
$15,000 building a mill before he hud
spent $500 opening up Ihe vein to tind
whether he had ore to treat or uot. Had
ho found the ore in tho vein he would
have had toconsiruct an elevator te raise
the ore to the mill. He was doiug
business oo the same lines as the crank
who spent a fortune in devising means
to raise th<"* waters of the Avon to the top
of an overhanging mountain in order
create water-power.
Stoping has been commenced at ths
Wakefield mino and the force will be
largely increased.
On Sunday last tbe Ruth mine people
knocked down flO.000 worth of ore with
one blast. This is the biggest business
in that way we over heard of.—Review.
New bunk houses and offices havo
Just been built at tbe Queen Hess mine.
The buildings are painted and arranged
in the latest manner and are made
comfortable and attractive for the men*.
A new trail to the Essex group is
being surveyed and is to be built at once.
Work has been started in a new place
on the vein, still further down the mountain and indications are that ore will be
struck in a very few feet.
Gus. Kruger has taken a contract to
sink a thirty foot shaft on the Pembroke
claim, which is situated between the
Galena Mines and Laura Doonu. Tbe

Winter. Although only four n.eu aro at

to the mine on Monday to look after the
inner man of the miners.
A foot of snow hns fallen at tbe Comstock mines aud raw-hiding to the

I know a land where the streets are paved
With the things wo mean to achieve,
It is walled with the money  we  meant
to have saved,
And the pleasures for which we grieve.
The kind words unspoken, the promises
And ninny a converted boon,
Are stored away in (hat laud eomewhere-
The land of "pretty soon"
Then* are uncut jewels of possible fame
Lving about in ihe dust,
And many a noble and lofty aim
Covered with mold and rust;
Aod O, this place, while it seems so near.
Is farther nwny than the moon,
Though our purpose ia fair, yet we never
get thcre-
To the land of "pretty soon."
The road that leads to that myst'j land
Is strewn with pitiful wrecks,
And the ships thnt have sailed fur this
shining strand
Bear skeletons on their decks.
It is further away at noon than it was at
And further at night than at noou;
O! let us beware of thai land down there-
Thu land of "pretty   soon."

llullIK   « ell.
A big strike has been Blade hi tlie
famous Standard mine «t Wallace, Id. Op
Thursday night the .eroiweut from the
first (fiaft level, at a depth of 200 feet
below the long tunnel, struck the ore in
the big vein.
Since then the miners hnVe crosscut
nine feet in amost solid galena, (Hi per
cent of which is clean shipping ore.
This is the first level opened below the
permanent water line in t^ns mine, **nd
gives assurance of the continuity in depth
of this great ore chute. The strike, is
1100 feet below the surface. The ore
assays from U Tin 70 per cent in leud,
and from 58 to <>1 ounces in silver. This
is even better than the line ore bodies
hIh>vc, from whicli the Slaiwlftl'^, people
have paid their great dividends running
from $.V),(MM) to lii.SO.OOO per month.
The mine, under the management ol
John A. Finch and A. B. Campbell, is
Dow employing about 150' men, und is
shipping about '.00 tons ol ore per day.
The new ore body will tie.opened up as
rapidly as possible, and shipments will
then he increased.
The company has ordered a new hoist,
and it will be installed alioiit tbe first
of December. It will be large enough to
sink 500 feet below the long tunnel levpl,
and will, cost $40,000. The cylinders will
be 00x20, with Corliss valves, Blake eon
denser* und all the modern improvements, lt will sit in a large chamber,
UO feet wide, IM leet high, and 80 feet
long, at a depth from the surface of 000
feet.    ,.
""""Strike In the I.e Roi.
Another momentous strike lias been
made in the Le Roi, this time in the
stupes midway between tbe 500 and 00O
foot levels. Right feet of ore has been
uncovered, averaging,^ per cent popper,
$50 in gold and 10 ounces in silver,
which, according to present prices of
copper .-and 'silver, gives a total value ot
$100.10 *ier ton. With copper at 12J
cents, the copper value alone is $44.10,
and the silver, at (10 cents per ounce,
is worth $0. The new find is the richest thnt has ever been discovered in the
niine'with the exception of the ore in the
llidpath stope, which carries about equal
values. /
Tbo recent discovery was made in a
peculiar way. The ledge at the point
where tlie ore was found is about 00 feet
wide, and ore in it occurs in* streaks. Development** of the-mine had been carried
on in one of these streaks, which had
been stoped for a width of 20 feet. A
large body of low-grade ore was removed on tbe footwall side of the stope. Last
week Superintendent Tfegeflr put a machine at work crojscutting the low-
grude rock,'which proved to be alwut 19
leet thick, when it gave way to an eight-
foot body of .splendid..gold-eoppcr ore lying close to the footwall.

as there is a shortage in the supply, ll

work was suspended, is large. The mines

Two hundred tons of Btemwinder ore

Terrible Loss of Lite In the Disaster

Falmouth, (let. 16.—The Hritish
steamer Mohegan, Captain ('ninths, belonging td the Atlantic Transport Company, has been wrecked in the vicinity
«'i 1 he Lizard, between the Manacles and
the lowlands, it is believed about 143
persona were drowned.
Ths Mohegan left London for New
■- ork Thursday, baring on bourd, so far
us ascertained at present, so passenger*
mid a crew of 118. When the steamer
was seen in distress, lifeboats went out
from the shore and every effort was made
to save the passengers. Tho const ut this
point is extremely dangerous und has
been Ihe scene of numerous wrecks. The
general opinion is thai the machinery of
the Moht'Kan became disabled' during the
heavy easterly gale which was blowing
und she run ashore and foundered.
A number of tugs, which put out from
Ibis port to the assistance of the Alohe-
gan   were   compelled   to   return   without
being able to approach the vessel, owing
to the severity Of the weather. The life
boats landed 31 of the passengers and
crew. One of the former, u woman, died
after being brought ashore. There are rumors unconfirmed as this dispatch is sent
that another lifeboat succeeded In saving
six more persons. ,
The survivors of the .Mohegan without
exception speak in the highest terms of
the devotion, heroism and coolness displayed by the officers and crew of the ill-
fated steamer, antl declare that all were
instantly at their posts when it was
known that she had struck. '1 ae nerilotu
position of the ship was noticed on shore
and 11 warning rocket was sent up, but it
was loo lute then to avoid the catastrophe, which occurred so suddenly that
there was not sufficient time to get nil
the life saving apparatus out of the ship.
The terror of the scene was Indescribable
men jumped overboard in an agony of
despair, and the women passengers htid-
tlhsi together und refused 10 leave the
deck. Ihe officers remained on the bridge
lo the last and many instances of sacrifice are recorded,
Members of the crew are known to
have stood by and watched the boats
launched ami put nil when it was apparent that these were the only menus by
which their own lives could be saved. A
lifeboat with a load of 4(1 passengers on
its way to the shore, passed many win
were battling for their lives in the water,
whom il was impossible to save.
The villagers, beaded by the vicar nn.l
coast guard, stood on the shore and
cheered the bout. When the lifeboat entered the little cove the fishermen waded
into the sea to help drag the exhausted
survivors to their homes, which hud already been prepared for their reception
ami the vicar attended the injured.
Then the lifeboat was again launched
and put out for the wreck, on its outward
journey, picking up three survivors. Ihe
trip to the wreck was fruitless, so far ns
taking any one from the vessel was concerned, but on its way back to the shore
Hi other survivors were taken from tin
Shore, This was just before daybreak.
The latest list of the rescued shows that
only 11 passengers were saved, including
the Pembertons and n maid named Began
or Kyuj.11.

It is easy ennuuh to bo pleasant,
When life flows by liken sung,
But the man worth while is one v l,*» will
When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
And it always comes  with yearn.
And the smile that is worth tho praises
of earth
Is the smile that shines' through tears.
It is easy enough to be prudent,
When nothing tempts you to sti-y,
When without or within no voice of sin
Is luring your soul away,
tint it's only a negative virtue
Until it is tried bv lire,
And the life that is worth the honor  ot
Is tbe one that resists desire.
By the cynic, tho sad, the fallen.
Who bad no strength for the strife,
The world's highway 1* < umbered to-day
Thev make up the item of life.
But the vittue that conquers  passion,
And the sorrow that bides iu a* 'iu"le,
It is these thai is worth the homage  oi
And we find tbem but once in a while.

aide the church door, make remarks and
stare at the ladles a* is their custom.
Any member seen to escort a young lady

like a gentleman', will be promptly expelled from the membership." The
application was to the point and the
effect marvellous.
