*«,->, 0110.
The Byron N. White Co., owning
the Slocan Star mine, at Sandon, last
week declared a dividend of .$26,000.
payable on the llth, and making the
second one for the year. The dividend
makes $60,000 for the year, Iieing 10
per cent in all. To date the dividends
are $517,600, or an average of 10 per
cent per Annum on the entire capital
nver a term of ten years. The record
is all the better in view of the fact
lhat the mine was practically closed
dowtt for two years during the labor
troubles and other difficulties.
Byron Whitft says: "When the Slocan Star mill has a full head of water
it produces alxiut 7(H)tons of zinc and
.'lil'l tons of lead concentrates a month.
The lead ore assays 96 oz in silver
and 60 per cent leud. and is sold to
the Trail smelter. The zinc concentrates' average 46 oz in silver and 35
per cent ziuc. Tliere are over 2(XX)
inns of zinc concentrates piled up at
the mill unsold. We are not marketing our zinc. The zinc is such an im*
portant product that we have decided
to build n custom zinc separating
plant, with a capacity of 60 tons per
day, at a cost, of $36,000. Work will
commence early in the spring. It will
raise the zinc concentrates to a 55 pel'
cent grade."

ll»» Been Paid liy the Ottawa During tin*
PiikI Yenr.
R. J. McPhee, manager of the Ottawa mine, states that his property
has returned to the owners as a result
of the year's operations no less a sum
than $49,000, This has been in excess
of the money paid OUt in development,
Improvements, surveys, etc. During
the year a little over 1-00 tons of ore
lias been shipped, the grade of which
has been uniformly high. The record
made by the Ottawa has been a re
uiaikiible one, as it has paid for itself
ana all development, while the value
of the mine has been greatly and permanently enhanced.
Shipments from the mine of late
have been held up, owing to the condition of the roads, neither wagons
por sleighs being able.to run. Half a
car of ore is iu the bins at the railway
and several carloads are stored at the
mine. The management is anxious to
get it out and realize on the present
high prices for silver. When sletgfiing
does come then the ore will be rushed
out.
At tho Ottawa drifting is now being
done on the east vein at the No. 0
level, it having been cut several days
ago. No ore was encountered, but the
vein is big and strong. It is very wet
in the drift, water coining through
the ledge very freely. Drifting on the
Noble vein at this level will cease for
the present, and work centred on the
east vein. It will take all winter to
reach the big ore chute opened from
above. Stoping will continue on the
upper levels.

ln^ri'iiHpil liriminil for Silver*,
Shipments of silver from London to
Oriental countries for the yoar up to
November 80, were valued at £8,789,-
993,against £6,416,069 iu I'.)03. India
received tlie'Vast [importion of that
amount, with China next, and the
Straits Settlements third. In the
Loudon market spot silver has been
in limited supply, ruling fractionally
higher thau forward deliveries,but
the variations in price have been in-j
significant, both here and abroad. Thej
increase of more than £2,000,000, or
$10,000,000 approximately, in ship-i
in mts of silver to the Orient and the
falling off in the visible supply in the
London market, indicates higher quotations and a strong demand during
the coming year, tor the production
under present conditions, can hardly

The use of this remedy ln the case of

In the trades there aro also poisons
which act especially upon the eye.
Very dangerous, above all, Is lead,
which produces inflammation and atrophy of the optic nerve. "Workmen la

THE DANGER OF ANAEMIA
Its Victims Are Defenseless When
Disease Strikes—The Blood Should
Be Kept Rich and Pure.
Anaemic people—people with watery blood—are without defense when
disease threatens. The strongest
weapon against disease is a plentiful
supply of rich, red blood. A robust
person may catch cold, but quickly
throws it off. But a cold lingers
with the anaemic one, goes to the
chest and the first signs of consuinp
tion appear. It is the tnaomlc one
who suffers from headache and dizziness, who cannot climb a stair
without resting, wlose heurt Mutters
nnd palpitates wildly at the least

be saved by a supply of new, rich, red

is the only medicine that actually
makes rich, red blood with every
dose. Ordinary medicines only touch
the symptoms of disease—Dr. Williams Pink l'ills go right straight to
tho root of the trouble and drive lt

larger sale than any oilier medicine
in the world, and (hat ls why thou-
sar-'ls and thousands of people praise
them so highly. Mi:i Florence (J.

to nny ihey have restored me to
health after all other means had
lulled.   I was suffering from anaemia
i its most severe form. The least
exertion  would   leave   me breathless

SUGCESSFDL MAN
he found his l08t health in

Leading Business Man of Welland
Gives His Experience with the
Great Canadian Kidney Cure.
Welland, Ont., Dec. 5.—(Special).—*
There is no better known or more
highly respected man in Welland
than Mr. J. J. Yokom. Born and
brought up in the neighboring township of Crowland, by his own industry
and sterling honesty he has grown to
be one of Welland's leading merchants. Consequently when Mr. Yokom comes out with a statement that
he was cured of a serious illness by
Dodd's Kidney Pills, everybody
knows it must be Ba
"For a year or more I had Kidney
Trorble ln all Its worst symptoms,"
says Mr. Yokom. "My head was bad, I
had no appetite and I lost weight
fast. At times I was entirely incapacitated. I doctored with a physician of vast experience but got no
good results.
"I became despondent of ever being
ell again, when by good luck I
cnanced to try Dodd's Kidney Pills
and from the first day they seemed
to suit my case. Five boxes cured
me completely."
SECURES  NEW   FIRE   INSURANCE
AGENCY.
Messrs.   Christie   and   Heubach   Get
the City Agency of the Manitoba
Assurance Company.
Unite recently it was announced
that the Liverpool & London & Globe
Insurance Company had secured the
control and business of the Manitoba
Assurance Company.
This new arrangement regarding
the Manitoba places it in the front
rank amongst the fire insurance companies of Canada, worked as It is now
under a Dominion charter, the policies being guaranteed by the Liverpool, lxindon and Globe, whose availably assets are over sixty millions or
dollars , is a feature that will certainly commend itself to the business men
of our community.
The city agency under the new arrangement regarding the Manitoba
has boen secured by the well known
firm of Christie & Heubach, who intend devoting special attention to
this department of their business.
The arrangement should be a good
one for the Manitoba, as the firm of
Christie & Heubach a closely identified with many of the leading financial Institutions in the city and is
well known to the business men of
Winnipeg, a connection which
should be of material assistance to
them in securing valuable insurance
patronage.
W. J. Christie has Deen long identified with real estate interests ln
Winnipeg, having for the past fifteen
years been well known in these circles. His opinion upon matters in
connection with real estate Is highlv
valued, his knowledge enabling him
to speak with authority.
F. W. Heubach ls also one of the
best known men around town, and his
activity and ability were never more
displayed than ln connert'on with
the recent Dominion exhibition. Since
the formation of the partnership of
Christie & Heubach. his large and
varied general knowledge has stood
him in good stead, and it is safe to
say that there is no real estate or financial firm in the city which more
merits the confidence of the investing
public than that of Chrlste & Heubach. who are being congratulated
upon tho latest addition to their business operations.
The Western territory is under
the supervision of Mr. Fred W. Pace,
the Superintendent of the "Liverpool

HOLIDAY   EXCURSIONS.
The extremely low rates granted by
the railway companies for Holiday
Excursions during the month of December makes It possible for residents of the Northwoest to spend tho
winter In tho east at a comparatively
small expense. The now last trains
from Winnipeg to Bt. Paul makes tho

popular than ever. The lliirlinglon
Route which runs along tho banks of
tho Mississippi river for three hundred miles is one of tho most popular

"With charity for all and malice toward none"—these well known words
of the great, I .-ave, sagacious Lincoln-
appear ln large lettering in the creed
of Christ church, Westminster road.
It ls fitting, then, that tbe imposing
tower of this superb structure, costing
over £02,000 ($310,000), should be dedicated to the liberat r of a race. Rowland Hill, whose name ls linked with
the world's great preachers, founded
Surrey chapel eighteen years before the
close of the eighteenth century. Newman* Hal. was one of his successors,
and under his leadership tbe church secured this splendid temple and center
of Christian service. When the building was still in tbe bands of the architects Dr. Hall conceived the idea of
dedicating the tower to Abraham Lincoln, the martyred president of the
United States, and today within the
tower you may read tbe following inscription:
LINCOLN TOWER.
Inaugurated Ith July, A. D. 1876, by
Str Thomas Fowell Buxton Bart.
The memorial stone was laid 9th July 1874,
By tha American Minister to this country.
The cost (£7,000) was defrayed equally by
English and American contributions

events have abundantly justified   his
Judgment.
Mr. I.ush had come west in May,
1898,«und up to tho time of his lo-
cuting in Deloraine ho had had imi
uphill fight against fortune. H« had
come out from Ontario at the invito-
tion of some citizens of Napiaka,
who wanted that place to have its
own local paper. Whether or not
they misrepresented to Mr. Lush the
size of their town, and overstated
tho measure of support they wero
prepared to accord the venture, or
whether, with characteristic western
optimism, they depicted the business
prospects of a local newspaper in the
light of their own roseate visions of
the town's future, cannot now be
said. Hut it is certain thut Mr.
Lush, who hud packed up and
brought West his printing plant from
Peterboro, Ont., to Napinka, was
not favorably impressed wit+i tho
outlook. To one accustomed to the
larger entities at which papers aro
published in the East the idea of
starting a paper ut so small a place
Boomed doubtless preposterous. Nevertheless, Mr. Lush gave the proposition a fair trial. The Napinka Oa-
zette made its appearance in due
courso, and for eleven months it
struggled against adverse fortune. It
was an eight-page paper, four of
which were printed nt home. Uut,
after some months of experiment, Mr.
Lush found that the proposition
would not go, und he wa.s forced to
seek fresh fields and pastures new.
Encouraging offers hud been made by
some prominent citizens of Deloraine,
uud thither Mr. Lush moved his plant
and. with new hopes, Issued in
March, 1899, the first number of the
Deloraine Advertiser.
Against tin; keen competition of the
long established Times, the Advertiser won its way slowly, llut with
each succeeding season its success
was moro pronounced, and to-day it
i.s acknowledged as ono of the best
representatives of the local press of
the province. Typographically it is
one of the best looking sheets of the
West, for Mr. Lush's long service in
tho mechanical branch of "the art
preservative" has made him critical
and exacting on that score. Its local
news is covered adequately, the matter being written with brightness
and vim. As before stated, the Advertiser gives an independent support
to the Conservative purty, aad its
editorial utterances have hud their
share in moulding public opinion in
tho section through whieh it circulates. In point of advertising patronage, the Advertiser is now almost,
if not quite, on a par with its much
older competitor. Altogether, tho
Advertiser is a tribute to the energy
and the pluck of its founder, as much
us to his ability us a printer and
editor. In addition, it is a tribute
to the enterprise of the Deloraine
people, who huve given it such hearty
und consistent support.
Mr. i.ush is an Englishman by
birth, but knows nothing of the land
of his nativity, for he was brought
out to Canada, at the age of threo.
The family home was at Shaftsl/ury—
the seut of the late earl of that
name—in Dorsetshire, and from this
home two of his uncles had previously emigrated to Canada. They
had located at Peterboro, Ont., and
thither the Lush family moved on
icoming to the Dominion. At this
town young Lush received his education, and ufter u eourae at the business college* at the ago of eighteen,

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.

be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
