Solve tho Concentration Problem.
A  npw   process whieh lias passed the
experimental   stage   and   Is   now being
used anccesfullv at Dolgelly, North Wales,
being apparently what is needed to treat
Slocan   ores,   is   the Elmore process of
concentration  ol   minerals  by oil.   He
great feature,  lo this section, is that by
this process minerals that flmir too finely
tn he saved hy any other known process,
such as sulphides,  grey   copper, tellor-
ides and  kindred  ores,  can be concen-
tiated   and   their  values   saved by this
new   invention.   Tl.e  cause which has
led   tn  eo  manv ol our Slocan concentrating   ilants  having  to  shutdown—
their inability to save the  values in the
ores owing   to   the mineral (louring and
floating  off with the watei—can now be
remedied.   Ae this mw discovery is of

between one and three gallons per ton.
Tlie oil is of a very cheap class.

O  hush yonr cries, my baby,

For every tiny   thing has crept
Into  its  cozy bed ;
O hush ! thu winds o' night will hear
Yonr pluntivo cries about,
And tho Christian  man  will get you it
you don't watch   out.
0 hush your cries, your father dear
Is hiding in tho hills:
He's hilling from the priests that make
Our fields run bloody   rills;
With  bible  and  with  musket,   they're
Converting all about—
The mission man will get you if
you don't watch out.
And if you're caught, the lovo wherewith
The I'.inlillia fills (lie mind
They'll turn to smiling falsehood,
Covering hatred of your kind:
O hush I wilh cross and bible they
Are prowling all about—
And they'll civilize you baby, il

than 100,000 tons of ore, and there Is

of the Chloadee Is nearly all of a higher grade than the general average of

miles. This theory has been verified
many times of late, as ore has been discovered along the line of the contact

Warm, sunny weather is help'_LU retail trade in the cities and is I .. wise
affording the farmers favorable i.iuor-
tunlty to complete crop planting. General business the country over must be
classed as satisfactory. The Iron and
steel trades, though reaching somewhat
of a lull In the country, continue to
furnish thc best reports, while the textile Industries return the least favorable accounts. Wool ls quiet, mills buying to fill only Immediate wants. There
is more movement at the west and on
the Pacific coast, however. London
prices are 'higher for finer merino
grades and lower for crossbreds.
The crop situation at present is quite
encouraging. Warm, sunny weather Is
helping corn and cotton, and wheat
maintains a generally good condition,
notwithstanding reports of damage by
Insects in the southwest. Grain planting is almost finished in the northwest
and liberal rains In California have
helped the situation there. The Iron
trade production naturally appears to
be catching up with demands In the
cruder forms. Bessemer pig Iron ls

southern pig have been 50 cents below

After-Effects Are Often Worse
Than the Trouble Itself  How
They May Be Avoided and
Good Health Restored.
>'n>m Ul Jniirniil, Knn'im City, Mo.
Following every epidemic of the
grip tbere remains a truil of after
effects which are often worse tliiin
the trouble itself und which seein to
baffle nil efforts of physicians. A
(peoiflo, however, bus been found
which not only will quickly restore
the health after an attack of grip
nnd cxjm'1 the lingering germs, but,
working through the blood will render the system proof agaiust the disease. In hundreds of cases it bus
been shown that l>r. Williams' Pink
Tills for Pale People have accomplished this result. One of the many
recent cures is that of Mrs. J. II.
Shaw, of 2101 Bellefontain avenue,
Kansas City, Mo., who says:
"When the grip was epidemic here
I Mas one of its victims uml the disease
left me   in   ii bad   stute.    I  formerly
hud un excellent memory, but ufter
the attack 1 could scarcely remember
anything. I bud severe puins in the
top und buck nf my head and wus
dizzy by spells. I would lie awaek
until lienrly morning und then full
into a sleep that was not restful. My
heart action wus weak nnd 1 wus u
victim of nervousness. In tact my
health wus shattered by the attack ol
the grip and recovery seemed hopeless.
"After being afflicted in this man-
ncr for several weeks, I happened to
read an advertiseiiient of Dr. Williams' Pink Tills for Pale People.
Thinking they might do nie good, I
k'gan taking them at mice. In three
days I was much better und could
sleep like a child ut night. After
using a box of the pills my memory
waa restored and 1 felt .greatly encouraged. I continued taking them
until I had used three boxes nnd
was in better health than I had enjoys
ed for several years.
"If a stumped envelope is sent for
reply I will gladly answer all inquiries relating to my case."

An im Friend
S. S. S. bas been
before the public
for many years;
from a small beginning, it has steadily
worked its way to
the front, and is now known in every dty, town and hamlet in the country. Its
ataunchest friends are those who have known it longest and have witnessed its
wonderful curative powers in their own families or among their friends and
acquaintances. Grateful patients in all parts of the country tell of their restoration
to health and happiness, and tbe testimony of these is the highest evidence of the
medicine's worth. S. S. S. is more popular today than ever in its history—no
other remedy stands so high, has ever given 6tich perfect satisfaction or is so
reliable in the cure of Cancer, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Contagious Blood Poison,
Scrofula, Eczema, Psoriasis, Salt Rheum, Acne, or any disease that originates in
the blood. Deing strictly a vegetable preparation, you will find it agrees with you
much better than a drug store concoction or any of the widely advertised potash
and mercury remedies, which affect the bones, muscles and stomach, causing
Rheumatism   or  Dyspepsia.     If   you
UOn't Experiment-—   have never tried S. S. S., you will be
surprised at the immediate good effects,
7"«i_frC S* S* S* for no sooner does it get into the circulation than the
appetite increases; you grow stronger, and gradually
but surely it drives out the poisons and restores the blood to a healthy condition.
If there is a sore or ulcer on the body, it begins to heal around the edges, the discharge finally ceases and the place gets well; muscular nnd bone pains vanish, and
the skin is relieved of all itching, irritating eruptions. Nervous, run down and
anaemic people will find S. S. S. just the medicine they need, for blood poverty
and illy nourished nerves are responsible for their condition. For old people and
children S. S. S. has no equal; being free from all minerals, it does not nauseate
or have any injurious effect whatever, and keeps the blood in good condition, thus
fortifying against disease. Experience teaches whut is good and what is not good;
this applies particularly to medicine, and S. S. S., a remedy that has retained the
confidence of the people for nearly 50 years, must have merit—IT CURES, is the
secret of its success. When you call for S. S. S.
don't be persuaded to accept something else—
there is no substitute for S. S. S. It is the only
guaranteed purely vegetable blood purifier, and
the safest and best for all blood and skin
troubles. Do not let them force an inferior
mineral remedy on you because there is a larger
profit in it. It you have any blood or skin disease, don't hesitate to write us about it; our physicians will carefully consider

Puffs under the eyes; red nose; pimple-
blotched, greasy face don't mean hard drinking always as much as it shows that there is
BILE IN THE BLOOD. It is true, drinking and over-eating overloads the stomach,
but failure to assist nature in regularly disposing of the partially digested lumps of food
that are dumped into the bowels and allowed
to rot there, is what causes all the trouble.
CASCARETS will help nature help you, and
will keep the system from filling with poisons,
will clean out the sores that tell of the sys-
stem's rottenness. Bloated by bile the figure
becomes unshapely, the breatn foul, eyes and
skin yellow; in fact the whole body kind of
fills up with filth. Every time you neglect to
help nature you lay the foundation for just
such troubles. CASCARETS will carry the
poisons out of the system and will regulate
you naturally and easily and without gripe or pain. Start to-night—one tablet-keep it up for
a week and help the liver clean up the bowels, and you will feci right, your blood will be rich,
face look clean, eyes bright. Get a 50c box of CASCARETS, take as directed. If you are not
cured or satisfied you get your money back.   Bile bloat is quickly and permanently

Last year, uion«"y waa  appropriated
by our Provincial Government for the
construction  of  a wagon road   from
this  place  to the   Rockland   mine on
Red   Mountain.    Por   come    reason,
which   has never been   made  publie,
this road has as yet not been built nor
has  any   attempt   been made to start
work   upon  it.    If  it is   not built by I Gibbs
the first of July of this year the money '
voted   for thia   purpose will revert to
the Government and there will be  nc
funds   available   for   the  work.    On
Red Mountain a yery large amount of
money has been expended in developing
different quartz   properties and    that
part of our camp  is entitled to a road
so t'.iat  these   mine; can bu put upon
a shipping basis.
If our memlvr, Mr. Green, would
devote a little more of his attention to
seeing tint justice was done to this
part of his Riding and less to the
promoting of railroads in other
members' Ridings, he would be better
received by hia constituent* on his
return home than he otherwise will.
