Regular weekly meeting of the city
council was held on Mouday night.
Present: Mayor McNeish, Aid. Worden, Smith, Henderson and Teeter.

council had full power to proceed with

Bylaw 19, amending the license bylaw,was taken up and given its seeoud
reading and accepted.
Bylaw 21), beiug the delinquent tai
sale bvlaw, was next ordered giveu its
second reading, which was doue and
duly accepted.
A discussion ensued upon the bylaw, Aid. Smith suggesting getting
auother lawyer's opinion thereon.
Aid. Teeter did not believe in any
further delay with the bylaw. None
of the aldermen were any better posted on the statutes than the city solicitor, and, as the bylaw had beeu drawn
up in accordance with the law, he
would move to have the bylaw read a
third time at ouee. Aid. Heuderson
seconded the motion, which was carried.
Bylaw 20 was then given its third
reading, there being uo objection raised calling for committing it to a committee of the whole. Accepted from
its third reading.
His worship stated it wa.s now necessary to appoint a collector for the
carrying but of the bvlaw and proceeding wiih the tax sale. He recommended H. 1). Curtis for the job, he
beiug willing to perform the work for
the 5 per cent commission allowed by
thu statutes. Should the taxes be paid
up hi .'ore the sal*-, he would ask $80
fr im the council for his labors.
Aid. Smith and Worden moved the
appointment of Mr. Curtis on those
terms.   Carried.
Aid. Worden inquired what had
beeu doue with .Springer creek.
The mavor said he had had a talk
with Mr. McGregor, who would draw
up a hot air map of the creek, similar
to that drawn up by the engineer for
the waterworks, for S10, but it would
be no good. He would make a proper
survey aud plan for $40. Tlie mayor.
believing that to be a fair price, had
ordered Mr. McGregor to proceed and
the work was now half doue,
His worship brought up the subject
of getting out the assessment of the
city for the vear, and suggested that
it should be done at once. He thought
last year's roll could lx; adopted, as
there wero very few changes to be
Aid Teeter said there would be the
regular estimates also to consider for
the vear.
Aid. Smith moved the adoption of
last year's assessment roll, that the
assessor make all necessary changes
therein, and return the roll to council
as soon as possible. Seconded by Aid.
Teeter aud carried.
Next the mayor introduced the subject of a temporary loan bylaw. The
city would Ik* in need of money aboul
the 1st of April and there was nothing
certain as to when the taxes woultl Incoming in. They needed Sil(HK) for
the debentures and another SUNK) for
the creek. Tlu-y musl puss a temporary ban bylaw to raise $2000 lo cover
present needs, and the money could
Im- paid back out of the taxes oomiug
in In-fore Deooinlier Bl. it might In-
possible that the delinquents would
pay up their taxes before then, and
accordingly the bylaw need not Im*
acted on.
Aid. Smith gave uotice that ntliext
meeting he would introduce a temporary loan bylaw.
Bylaw re was given its third read
ing, on   motion   of   Aid. Teeier and
Worden.   Accepted as read.

OOltrt Of Kfvltln.il.
On Monthly H. P. Christie, collector
of votes for the Slocan riding, held a
court of revision ou the voters' list.
No changes were made, ns no objections were filed. Five names were
placed Ob the lijt,a» follows: Joseph
J. 1 in.uk Collom Tel It What UU Company Will Do.
"Our new B0 ton mill at the Arlington and Ricowilabi minus will be running before tlie end of the year," said
J. Frank Collom, managing director
of those properties, to the* Spokane
Review on Mouday. Mr. Collom was
on his way from San Francisco to
"The plant as a whole will follow
the process perfected by John R.
Parks, M.E., of Spokane,who has been
working on it for a year and a half.
The Arlington company has maintained a laboratory here, where most
exhaustive tests have been made, iu a
complete plant of one unit. The tests
showed beyond doubt that we shall
save 90 per cent of the silver values in
the Arlington dump, at a cost of $8,80
per ton. That will leave a profit of $7
a ton on 40,000 tons, or a net clean-up
of .S28O.OO0. The mill will cost us
$60,000, and the proceeds from the
dump will moro than pay for it four
times over. In addition, Mr. Parks
estimates that there is ore enough in
the Arlington and Ricowilabi unmined
to run a 50 ton mill 15 years.
"In the Parks process the idea is to
make all the slimes possible. The
slimes will lx? treated by cyanide. It
is uncertain whether we shall instal
the new Parks cyanide pans or the
Hendryx agitator. The result to lie
reached by either system is the same.
We aim to get the highest possible
extraction of silver by cyanide at the
most economic cost." Tlie 10 Parks
pans will have a capacity of 50 tons a
day. when three charges a dav can be
put through. Seven hours is about
the o.dinary time required to make 90
per cent extraction of silver from Arlington ores iu tliem. However, the
Dans co-t KJ0OO each, or 110,000 for a
battery Sufficient to work the 50 ton
mill. The Hendryx agitator of thr
greater siao would cost'3)00 or S^Of.O
and would require much legs floor
space, besides being more economical
in treatment. I can not thin!-: that the
Hendryx agitator will make the same
high extraction of si J ver op is obtains :1
in the Parks pans, and only tests can
determine that fact. Wc shall go
ahead with the mill, leaving unsettled
tbe question of installing Parks pans
or the Hendryx agitator until tests
shall have Ix-en completed.
"The Parks pan consists of a pan 15
feet in diameter and Hi inches high,
lt is fitted with a close, flat cover, on
the under side of which wooden lugs
are placed. Tho cover revolves and
the lugs stir the pulp in the pan into
a spiral movement. At various points
on the rim of the pan pipes are set,
which force air at a pressure of five
pounds iuto the pulp and cyanide.
The aeration secured in such a manner is thorough and complete.
"The bottom of the pan is an amalgam cathode plate and the cover is
the anode plate. The current is acting
all the time and results in depositing
the silver ou the amalgam cathode.
We do not kuow the cause, but electric deposition is much lietter when it
is carried ou in the presence of air.
Kor that reason the Parks pan has a
marked advantage over the Hendryx
agitator, where the electric plates are
submerged in water away from the
air. The Parks pan Is doubtless patentable, bul there i.s nothing else of
importance about the Parks system
which can be patented.
"In preparing Ihe ore it is first
crushed in a 20 stamp mill and is (fir*
lied by automatic distributors over six
overstroin tables. They separate the
coarse silver and the base mrlals,
which are turned out as concentrates
for shipment to the smelter. The bulk
nf   tho   silver values aro  made  into
••limes, which go to the cyanide treat-.
nietit. Tin* slimes are lirst put through
a Klein separator, which takes out the
remaining line silver, antl that small
port ior,represent ing about 10 percent
of the original bulk of the ore, is
crushed to 120 mesh in a tube mill, so
as to give the cyanide a chauce to get
at the ore. The ore entering the. separator passes on to the cyanide tank.
"The original charge for treating
our Arlington ores is 20 pounds of
cyanide to a ton of oi.-. The cyanide
solution may be used over and over
again indefinitely by recharging it
with about five pounds of cyanide to
every ton of ore. Cyanide costs, say,
25 cents a pound laid down, which
means a consumption of cyanide of
$1.25 per ton. All the crushing is
dono wet to mako slimes, anil costs
aro consequent lv low,

The name, Ricowilabi, is composed of
the first syllables of the names of tho
various members.
"The Ricowilabi owns the Sptcula-
tor, a silver group of 300 acres, adjoining the Arlington, for whieh we
paid $65,000, and we have doue development amounting to $75,000, The
company has a boud issue of $200,000
and there is a balance of $(>0,000,
which will bo used in building a mill.
I have placed considerable of the

we are arranging for it. Prof. Buck,

of the pioneers of cyaniding, who invented feature's of the Pelatin-Clerici
"The Ricowilabi company expects
to do a custom business, and will encourage as liberally as possible the
treatment of low grade ores of the district. We expect to cut the smelter
rates iu two. The 50 ton plant is
merely an initial one, nnd we hope to
increase it to 150 or 200 tons a day as

Tho January number of the American Magazine of Mining & Investment,
published at Cleveland, Ohio, contained a couple of announcements that
will lie of peculiar interest here:
"The Sloean-Republic Mining and
Development Co., ltd., of British Columbia. Nine hundred thousand shares
of stock for development purposes
solely, 100,000 already sold, and 800
feet of tunnel work, and shaft 100 feet
deep, already accomplished, together
with 5i miles of wagon road connecting with railroad and smelter. E'ghty
three tons of ore shipped uetted J53.10

the dump. An additional .**mall allotment of stock being sold at 40c per
share to erect cyanide plant nud otlier
mining equipment. Par value of the
stock $l,full paid and non-assessnble."
"The Chapleau Consolidated Gold
Mines of Slocan City will Ik? re-opened
and operations will commence shortly
under the direction of Fred Stock, a
mining engineer of Seattle. The properties belong to a companv in Paris
and are equipped with the latest machinery. The paystreak is of high
grade ore."
The same journal also contained
the following prime pieces of rubbish:
"The mines at Rosslaud yielded
$2(5.000,000 in 1908."
"More than 4000 men are employed
at the Granby mines in British Columbia, the largest number ever on the

There Is a valley amid the Yorkshire bills known as Coverdale, from
whose slopes, long years ago, came
pious Miles, who translated the Bible,
and wbo was called by the simple folk
Miles of Coverdale, after the place of
his birth.
Very calm and peaceful the little dale
lies under the shadow of the great
bills, whose summits are purple ln tbe
sweet sum inert Ide with < heir royal
mantle of fragrant heather, and where
tbe curlew and the golden plover's
cry alone break tbe gentle stillness
that rests over the little world beyond
tbe haunts of restless activity and hurrying Ufa
Tbere Is no railway In quiet Cover-
dale, no town to wblcb the country
folk may wend their wny.no shops save
tbe wonderful village emporium, wbere
everything in a very small way may be
obtained, but where few fashions come
to startle the gayer minded of tbe
maidens, or strange new devices In
neckties to dazzle the vision of the
country lads.
To peep Into the world necessitates a
Journey under the shelter of the lone
hillsides, along bonny laues, lutwlned
with pink nnd creamy tinted honeysuckle, aud green with waving ferns;
past the quaint inn, whose sign Is a
famous but loug ago race horse, called
In the canny Yorkshire tongue the
Lady Bab, and, finally, across the moor
into horse loving Mlddleham, where
are people and shops, and mnny Inns
with curiously painted signposts the
Black Swan and Its brother, tbe White
Swan, and many others too.
But down In Coverdale tbere ls a
beautiful old church, set like a Jewel
ln Its surrounding of stately trees and
blossoming hedges, with the quiet
greenness of Cod's acre lying stretched
about It. and the singing of nature's
choristers In the sweet nir around—a
place of peacefuluess and repose, where
earth's burdens mny fall from one for
a little space and heaven's benlson light
softly on such of Its children as stay to
pray and think awhile.
There Is a quuint lyeh gate nt the entrance to tbe holy spot, a carved hnlt-
Ing ploee of oak. set tenderly by some
good man of the dalespeople*-a squire
of the olden days, who loved his borne
■nd bis neighbors and his Cod full
well. I think, nnd sought to beautify
tbe church In whicb be and his bad
worshiped so long.
And down the fair avenue of trees
within the precincts and past tbe quiet
church lie the remains of wbat was
onee the proud abbey of Cotcrdule,
where the monks said masses and cultivated tbelr garden and tended tbe
souls and bodies of the poor and needy
In the dale.
It Is a beautiful spot In a beautiful
countryside, and so thought a man
wbo viewed it lovingly and pointed out
all Its changeful lights and shadows
nnd all Its pretty peeps of field and
river to bis wife.
Tbey bnd only been married a little
while, a few sbnn weeks, and bad
elected to spend their honeymoon In
•ome of the quaint corners of England;

sequestered nook among the bills aud

Telling of regal purple. Tbe man loved
It already wltb tbe artist love wblcb
sees tbe beautiful so quickly and feels
It so strongly, and the woman—well,
she saw the lienutles. too. but she was
growing a little weary of pretty sights,
and shewnsvery pretty nntl spoiled her*
self anil perhaps a little Jealous of admiration wasted which might have
been diverted homeward.
So she stood by tbe quaint relics of
tbe abbots and mulled knights nt Coverdale. where two quaint forms guard
a doorway as perchance tbelr originals
gunrded some stronghold In the old
lighting dnys long gone, and ber wblte
gown fell over the gray stones and
glentned agnlnst tbe red and orange
nasturtiums In the garden wblcb surrounds the old walls and arches, aud
sbe wondered If her husband had nearly finished bis sketch nnd whether Ihey
should stny at Middlchatn for n tiny or
two or go on farther to Wensleyilale.
"lam rather tired of admiring places,"
sbe snld to herself a little Impatiently,
"and, then, I never can remember who
lived In the castles nnd nhbeys. How
uncomfortable they must hnve been!"
Aud tben—for she wns only n very
young bride, too—she felt sorry for
having been Impatient, even In ber
thoughts, toward her husband, nnd she
lunicd to spenk to blm with nn even
sweeter smile than usual on her prettj
lips, for ber husband wns a genius In
his way, a thinker and an author, ond
every one had envied her when she
married blm In spite of her wealtb.
Ab, there wns a pitiful ring In the
story-poor and nameless, but clever;
beating himself to pieces In bis eager
attempts to win fume single banded,
and rich and beautiful the woman with
the fnlryllke figure and exquisite face
wbo bail given the man ber gold.
And. ab. n mure pitiful note still, nnd

With Ita iiuuiut surroundings and IU

He closed his sketchbook, with a
sigh, nnd turned to the wblte robed
loveliness of hla wife with a murmur-
ed apology for having kept her waiting, and then together they passed
do*vn the nvenue that lends to tbe road
But he was very client, and hi? wife
felt tired and Jnst a little cross. She
liked to be petted and coaxed nnd flattered, and latterly Wilfred bnd been
too serious to suit her gny fancies and
too absorbed In new ideas for his book
to pay ber the attentions she loved so
dearly to exact from every man and especially from her husband.
"Let us go home to towu," she said
suddenly. "1 om so tired of roaming
In this out of tbe way plnce. Wilfred,
and there Is still so much going on, I
hear. You must have got lots of Ideas
now, I am sure." She laughed gleefully ns she spoke. The murmur of tbe
streets seemed already In her ears, and
the flash of silks and jewels came over
the sunlight on tbe grass.
He paused a moment "Will you not

kindly, yet a little wistfully. "There

a sudden light flashed Into them and
then died very gently ngain.
Tbe man's face grew white In tbe
shadow of the leafy elms, but bis wife
chattered on In her high, pretty voice
and noticed nothing of his pallor. And

met again In the soft sunshine of tbe
autumn dny. with the first few leaves |
falling, golden tinted, from the trees

somewhere near, under the old gateway that leads to the house of prayer.

Now comes the prepnrniion of the roof.

Food Valnee.
Blanched almonds nre the highest
kind of nerve or brain or muscle food,
having no heat or waste, says n writer
In Oood Housekeeping. Walnuts give
brain or nerve food, muscle, bent nnd
waste. (ireen water grapes are blood
purifying, but of little fooil value. Blue
grapes are feeding and blood purifying,
but too rich for thos». wbo suffer from
the liver. Tomatoes have higher nerve
or brnln food qualities: they are thin-
ntng and stimulating. .Inlcy fruits give
more or Icsh nerve or brnln nutriment
and some few muscle food and wnste.
Apples supply the higher nerve and
muscle food, but do not give staying
qualities. Prunes afford the highest
nerve or brnln food, supply beat and
wnste. but are not muscle feeding. Oranges nre refreshing nnd feeding.
<Ireen figs contain nerve and muscle
food, hent and wnste. The great mo-
Jorlty of small rresh seed fruits nre
laxative. Lemons and tomatoes should
not lie used dnlly in cold weather; tbey
bnve a thinning and cooling effect.
Rnlstns nre stimulating according to
their quality.

The Invariable cause of eolds comes
from within, not without. No one takes
cold when ln n vigorous state of health,
tvith pure blood coursing through th*
body, ntid there Is no good reason why
nny one ln ordinary health should hnve
a cbld. It mnv come from insufficient
exercise, breathing of foul nir, wantol
wholesome footl. excess of footl, lack ot
bathing, etc., but nlways from some
violation of the plain laws of health.
There can be no more prolific cause
of colds thnn highly seasoned foods as
well ns frequent eating. These give no
lime for Ilie digestive organs to rest
and Incite an increased How of the digestive secretions. Thus larger quantities of nourishment are absorbed than
can be properly utilized, and the result
ls uu obstruction, commonly called a
"cold," which Is simply an effort of the
system to expel the useless material.
I'ropcrly speaking, It Is self poisoning,
due to un Incapability of the organism
to regulate and compensate for the disturbance.
A deficient supply of pure air to the
lungs Is not only a strong predisposing
cause of colds, but a prolific source of
much graver conditions, l'ure air and
exercise are necessary to prepare the
nystein for the assimilation of nutriment, for without ihem there can be no
vigorous health. The oxygen of the
air tee breathe regulates lhe appetite
as well as tbe nutriment that is built
up In the system.
The safest find best way to avoid
colds Is to sleep ln a room with tho
windows wide open and to remain out
of doors every day, no mntter what
may be the weather, for at least two
hours, preferably with some kind of
exercise, If no muiv than walking. One
should not sit down to rest while the
feet nre wet or the clothing dump. A
person may go with the clothing wet
through to the skin all day If he bat
keeps moving. Exercise keeps up the
circulation and prevents taking cold.
The physiologic care of colds ls tha
prevention of the occurrence. The person who does not enrry around an over-
supply of alimentation in his system
nnd furthermore secures a purified circulation by strict, sanitary cleanllnew,
thus placing himself in n positive <_n-
ditlon, ls Immune to colds. A starving
man cannot take cold.
A careful diet would exclude lhe use
of all narcotics nnd all food that is not
thoroughly appropriated. An overfed
person Is worse off than one who Is underfed, because the overfed body is
taxed to dispose of what cannot be appropriated and, when not properly disposed of, remains only to be an element
of danger.—Science of Health.

There ls a certain physiological difference between the poisonous and
harmless snakes which exists very
plainly ln their manner of deulltlon.
All snakes are objects of aversion and
dread to mankind, so much so that to
be bitten by a snake has at times been
so fearful to the victim as to have pro-
duc-ed dentb although the snake was
harmless. Such Is thc Instinctive dread
with which these reptiles are thought
of that It may lie desirable to have
some easy mode of distinguishing the
one kind from the other. This distinguishing characteristic ls afforded by
thc teeth, ln all poisonous snakes
there ure only two rows of teeth, the
fang or fangs being arranged either
within the two rows or outside of them.
The harmless snakes have four distinct
rows nf teeth, and when the bite .shows
this kind of wound and not any slugle
deeper or larger puncture there need
be uo apprehension.

Johnson told Bob well once In the
course of a conversation, in which he
praised the "Anatomy." that a man, If
Inclined to melancholy, should have a
lamp constantly burning la his bedchamber during the night "and if wake-
fully disturbed take a book and read
and compose himself to rest." There
can be little doubt that in thtft Indicating an appropriate course for any

stating his own practice. Mnny a book

In bed. A man who wished to be forever lying on sof.-m. reading "eternal
new novels of Croblllon nnd Marl-
vaui," must have been familiar with
the faces of his favorites ln tbe night
hours. Elijah Kenton, a now forgotten
coudjutor of I'ope, was accustomed to
lie abed at his lodgings, we are told,
and be fed with a spoon, but Gray's
love of ease was not of this type. Gray
was a bookman, und moat bookmen
probably have Indulged In the habit of
reading ln bed. l.ainb apostrophized
his folios as "my midnight darlings,"
but those "huge aruil'uK" ns he calls
them, were not bedside books. Tliey
were tbe companions of the long hours
of candlelight In the back room of the
quiet little "gambogtsh colored" house
beside the Chase nl Enfleld. Wycber-
ley, one of the "nrtlllclal" dramatists
for whom Lamb wrote n quaint defense, made a habit of readlnj; himself
to sleep. Nightly he shared his pillow
with his fsvorile authors—Seneca,
Montaigne Al Rochefoucauld—and In
the mornings made a practice of writing ea those subjects which had caught
his attention during the previous
night's reading, with the curious
though not unnatural result, ss Pope
has testified, that his writing was un-
consrlously a mere echo of his reading.
Somewhat later, when Grub street
flourished, If so Inappropriate a verb
may be allowed, many n poor wretch
of a hack author was glad to write as

claims the responsibility. Well, the
claim will have to be more substantial
than in John L.'s case or it will do Bill
no good. *
An especially interesting and satisfactory piece of news will be found on
the first page, being the official an-
nounce.uient re the Arlington mill. As
a result, confidence should be reestablished in the camp and business
revive. Now is the darkest hour before
the dawn.
Grit prophecies have again proven
barren of result. The Tory convention
at Victoria Monday was to have beeu
the battleground for belligerent and
aspiring politicians; but such was not
the case. Tho convention proved to
be quite a harmonious affair and sectional differences were dropped in the
interest of the party. Sir Hibbert
Tupper was elected president of the
provincial organization for tho year,
and n vote of confidence was passed in
the McBride government. That move,
coupled with the appointment of Col.
Prior to an executive position, should
convince our Grit friends that the
Tory family is standing pretty well
united. John Houston presided at
the convention and made a modal
chairman.   'Nuff sod.
The electiou law in this province
should be made to conform with the
practice in vogue in Manitoba or On
tario in dealing with the revision of
the voters' lists. As it is, the mode of
proceedure is too cumbersome and
does uot aid in keeping the lists fresh
and reliable. Take that for the Slocan
"Tiding for example. No objections
were filed at the court of revision on
Monday, yet there are several names
of men on the list who are dead, and
many more who are known to have re
moved from the province. It is a
senseless proceedure carrying over
these non-voters from year to year,
eventuating in the list becoming un
wieldy und unreliable. The process
of purifying the voters' list should be
mude as simple and effective as possi
Were a newspaper man to enter a
store and take some small article or
ask to be giveu a quantity of mer
chaiidise  without  offering  payment
therefor, he would be Immediately cat*
alogued either as a rogue or a lunatic.
Yet every newspaper inun has to submit to this sort of thing every Week.
People think nothing of demanding
advertising space in a paper for some
business announcement, OT appropriating a copy of the paper, and'they
would be highly insulted wero the
printer to nsk for pay. Space in n
paper is the means of living for the
printer and has & certain value per
lino. It mny lie but a small demand
that is made upon the printer's generosity by an individiial,but they soon
aggregate into a largo sum from the
many. Printers, however, are a special
species of the human animal.   They
are supposed to live where other folk
would starve, thrive where others
would languish,and to lie tlie butt for
all the abuse, ill will and contempt
of a community. Merchants must
rightly lie paid their accounts, but the
printer —oh, lie's only a printer nnd
