OUttwn U h Rurprlte.
W. F. Robertson, provincial mineralogist, paid his Brat visit to the Slocan City miuing division last week,
spending eight days in examining into
its resources and capabilities. In that
time he inspected the Enterprise and
Iron Horse, on Teu Mile; tho Ottawa,
Arlington and Black Princeton Springer; the Howard Fraction, Kilo,Legal
nnd Chapleau. on Lemon;and the Republic and Club, near town. These
he characterized as typical properties
of the camp and baaed his conclusions
Mr. Robertson stated his observations had moro than fulfilled his expectations. In some particulars he
was disappoiuted.but taken altogether
he was more than surprised at the extent of the mineral deposits of the
camp and the possibilities thereof. Of
course, he would not particularize on
any one mine, but he would take the
division as a whole. He did admit,
however, lhat the Ottawa had lieen an
eye-opener to him, as he did not expect to see such a good thing. That
it was a dividend-payer was beyond
cavil, and its success must encourage
others. The ore bodies were large and
he believed high grade, while the development done was extensive aud
The Enterprise was another good
mine, with a high percentage of ore
chutes, Imt it would not stand a high
capitalization. In the Lemon creek
section the evidences of mineral wealth
Were numerous and pronounced, and
its gold values undoubted. What was
required for tbe creek was a custom
mill, for treating the various ores. It
was not the proper thing to ship thein
hs they should all lie treated locally.
For one tou of ore shipped there must
be .six otheis mined and left ou the
dump, and that was practically much
value wasted.
Summing up his remarks. Mr. Rob-
rtson said it was a shame more properties were not being operated by
their owners. The camp deserved
bettor things of investors, ns the exposures of ore were many and encouraging. There wis room for new capital and. while all would probably not
meet with success, there would be
numerous winners. The secret to success for the whole camp was the treatment of the lower grade bees, of which
there appeared to lx* an Immense
available tonnage. Another important
point to remember was not to overcapitalize a proper! v, as there were
few mines that could stand a heavy
top burden. A judicious expenditure
of money and careful management
would reap their own reward.
In general terms Mr. Robertson
spoke well of the dry ore lielt. and
deemed it worthy of inspection from
investors. His report will not appear
till next year, but it is likely a synopsis of it will be issued this fall. Its
appearance will lie awaited with interest. Mr. Robertson will also make a
report on the upper Slocan.

Sir,—I am working on 31 below
Discovery, Sulphur creek. Wages are
S6 a day and board on this creek, and
$1 and board on nil the others, except
a few claims. They are celebrating
the Fourth up at the postoflice. 2 below, today, and we are not working. 1
am going up to see the sports.as there
is quite a village up there. This country is not nearly so good as it has
been, but il is quite n good countr;
yet. They work lower grade ground
than they' used to and are working
some ground the second time and
making it pay. There is lots of work
at present on Eldorado, Bonanza, Dominion and Hunker creeks.
There are any number of people going from here this season to the la
nana, down in Alaska.where there has
lieen a big gold excitement for some
time. Every Ixint is loaded going
down river. Most of the reports are
favorable so far and it may make u
good camp, but it is doubtful if it will
prove anything like the Klondike.

Thos. A. Noble, of Pittsburg, Pa., on his return Saturday from au inspec-f
tion of the Ottawa mine, where he had been for two or three days, it being
his first visit since he and A. B. Coleman, of the same city, purchased the
property just two years ago, said to The Drill man:
"I must congratulate tlje manager, R. J. McPhee, for the very apparent
improvements upon the surface at the mine, there being four tunnels,ore house,
bunkhouse, office, powder magazine, blacksmith shop, timber shed, aud ore
sorting shed, where the great trouble seems to be to select the very little
second-class ore from the many cars as they nre conveyed from the mine to
the shed. This exterior view is a very small part of the development that
meets you when you look into ami around the underground workings, with
their 21X10 feet of tunnels, 460 feet of raises, and 484 feet of crosscuts. The
tunnels have ore exposed for 560 feet, and from one raise to the other repre
sents an elevation of 80 feet. The thickness of the vein at No. 4 level
and at No. 3J level—the intermediate level between No. 8 tunnel and No. 4
tunue'--shows an immense ore body, and in two particular places ore is exposed iu the stopes with an average thickness of 3 feet. This ore will assay
at least 400 oz in silver to the ton. Much credit is due to J. B. Foley, the
foreman and mine boss, for the manner in which he has developed the underground workings, which have led to the discovery of these fine bodies of
ore. The character of the ore is silicious, containing native silver, azurite,
peibergite, argentite and gray copper. The output is two cars a week aud,
in oiiler to provide for the proper future development of tho mine and to get
at the ore at greater depth, No. 5 tunnel will lie started at once and pushed
vigorously to completion, in and under the present levels, at a vertical depth
of 1(X) feet. It i.s needless to say that no property in British Columbia shows
a greater development than this mine within the time that it has been in
operation, and it bids fnir to liecome the greatest mining proposition in the
Not much noise hns lieen mnde nliout the developments at the Ottawa, and
the success met with is all the more gratifying on that account. For the
money expended, the amount of ground broken is astonishing, nnd withal the
work has been done judiciously aud to advantage. The Ottawa aafcy ctwiily
be classed as the banner property of the camp.
Before taking his departure on Saturday for Nulsoit, Mr.'Noble stated he
was carrying back with bim from tho bank proceeds from ore shipped sufficient to cover the purchase price of the Ottawa and to meet all development,
so that in future all profits earned would be on velvet. He estimated that
the reserves of ore blocked out were sufficient to enable shipments to be kept
up r.t the rate of two cars a week for 18 months. Development, however, will
lie maintained ahead, as has been doue in the past. Every point of working
in the miue is in ore and making money. None of the ore is coming from
the west vein, it being held in reserve. Where opened it, too, discloses pay
ore, and bids fair to rival the east vein.
Queried as to the Iron Horse, Mr. Noble stated he and his associates were
planning to resume operations there. They had access now to a process that
will successfully treat the ziuc ore of the Enterprise and Horse, and it would
be installed ou the creek. Tho present Enterprise mill, if assisted by this
uew process, could lie made the salvation of that section of the camp. Mr.
Noble said, in conclusion* that all that was required here was for one or two
properties to work profitably and confidence would return. The Slocan City
division was full of gootl things and no better field for investment was to lie
found in the west. Wero it located in the States, the camp would be a hummer, and its merits and ^sources wili evcjftoati.v make it a winner.

A Health*/ Kvldenee or the Ufe a,rtl
Wealth of the Camp-Ottawa 1. tha
Biggest Shipper.
A notable increase took place this
week in ore shipments, no less than
1015 tons having lieen sent out. Tho
Ottawa-headed the list with 66 tons to
Nelson, followed to the same place by
20 tons shipped toy the lessees.of tho
Neepawa, and 20 tons to Trail by the
Enterprise. The outlook for tho camp
is cheering and prospects are weekly
growing brighter. Several movements
of importance are on foot. To date
the output of the camp is 1247 tons.
For 1008 the ore shipments from
tho local division amounted to 1389
touB,   made   up   from 17 properties.
Following is a full list of the ship
ments this year to date:
Accompanying Mr. Noble on his visit to the Ottawa was A. W. Sayles, representing the Mine & Smelter Supply Co., of Denver, Col. It was his first
trip in here, and he cams for the purpose of equipping the Ottawa with a
p >,ver plant and mai;biuery, if need be. Mr. Sayles i* an experienced mining
ni iu and knows a min-) when he-sees it.   He unbosomed himself thusly:
"The Ottawa requires no machinery for its operation, being oue of the
•riirtptftit pnvi'i'tie* to operate I have eve:* se>n. I came prepared to see a
fair mine, which had 1k*'*ii highly lauded by its owners, but I wns astonished.
No exaggeration had been mule of th;> property. Tho development accomplished tor th a money expended is remarkable, and the results achieved must
ba gratifying to Mr. Noble. Thore is uo discounting th"* ore In sight, either
as to extent or valuo There is a practically continuous ore chute so far exposed of 260 feet, with tho end not yet in sight. In one stope there is a face
of four feet of rich ore. With its present development the Ottawa is a mine,
Init with the No. 5 tunnel driven in it would make a liitf proposition, aud an
immense money-maker, It surprises me to think the west vein has not been
exploited, as I believe it will fully equal the east vein as an ore producer.
The Ottawa has proven au agreeable surprise to me, as I had no idea such a
thing existed in the country. Its record of paying for its purchase and development in two yenrs is as unique as its remarkable, especially as the value
of the mine is now infinitely greater than it could have been at the time of
its purchase. Mr. Noble's great success will Ih* sure to attract to your camp
niiiny monied men, as there is plenty of idle money awaiting investment.
One or two more successes nnd you would have a prosperous camp."
Oue of tho richest and best strikes of the year was made last week by Pete
Swan and S. Lauderbach on the Highland Light group, Ten Mile. The meu
came down Thursday evening for more ore sacks and confirmed the report.
The strike was made in tho No. 2 tunnel and consists of 14 inches of ore, carrying uative silver and much ruby silver, making it the prettiest specimen
stuff seen in the camp in a long while. The meu filled nil the sacks they had
and then came down here for more. Last year in the same drift a barren
streak appeared and it looked as if the ore had been cut off, but the first shot
this year opened it up bigger than ever.
Tlie Highland Light group consists of four claims, of which the Victor is
the liottoiii one. They are located two miles back from the half way, on the
north side of the creek, being six miles by road aud trail from the lake. Two
ledges have been proven on the ground, each containing high grade shipping
ore. The vein now being worked has lieen more fully developed, as beside*
open cuts it has two tunnels, in 26 and 25 feet respectively, and a crosscut to
the vein of 40 feet, Where cut in the No. 2 tunnel the vein has a depth of
BO feet, and at the crosscut 90 feet. There the ore body is wider and carries
more ruby silver, the chute indicating great depth.
Each year enough ore is taken out to pay for development. Last year 41
sacks of ore were shipped. Thirty of these came from the No. 1 vein, but the
ore was not so rich as that now struck, yet it gave smelter returns of 480..>0
0Z in silver; 11 sacks of ore obtained from the No. 2 vein returned 672.20 oz
in silver. Specimens of the ore may I*' obtained running into the thousands
of ounces. The ore contains ns by-products aliout 0 per cent lime, 40 to 70
per cent silica, and 2 to B per emit iron, making u splendid flux. The meu
went linck again Mouday with more sacks and will prepare u small shipment
to go forward at once.

For some time past it has been an open secret that Montana people were
seeking to purchase the the Kilo group of gold claims, on Lemon creek. It
was thought the recent test of ore from the mine made at thc Chapleau mill
would conclude the negotiations aud the transfer be made. However, the
returns obtained from the mill run had a much different effect than anticipated. A telegram was received last week by N. P. McNaught, of Silvertou,
bom bis brother in New York, stating that the returns obtained were too rich
to sell the mine nt the figures involved, and thnt the owners would keep the
property and work it themselves, a party coming" out with plans for a mill
and instructions. It is not often that a deal is called off because the ore is
too rich, aud the Kilo case stands as a record for this division.
Ralph Gillette received his return* Wednesday on the shipment of ore he
made recently from the Colorado, on Twelve Mile. There was a little over 7

Selection of Anlm.i'-.   lin edlnj nnd Quality
—Age   fur   Killing   l'l'i'imratloii  of
Animal. f>r Sluu ;n er.
The Ottawa Department of Agriculture sends out the following:
Much valuable information regarding
the butchering, curing and Keeping of
meat is given In Farmers' Bulletin
No. 183 of tho li. s. Department of
Agriculture, entitled ".Meat on the
Farm." The many illustrut ions enable anyone to follow closely the directions for killing and cutting up
tattle, sheep aud swine. Tbe general
advice given Is worthy of close attention by all farmers who do not depend on the butcher for their meat
Selection of Animals.—The author
of the bulletin points out that In the
selection of animals for meat health
ahould bo given first consideration.
No matter how fat nn animal may be
or how good its form. If it is not in
perfect health the best quality of
meat ennnot be obtained. Jf suffering
from fever, or any serious derangement of tho system, the flesh will not
be wholcsomo food. Flesh of animals
that have recovered from the ravages of disease before .slaughter is not
likely to euro well and is very ditfi-
cult to keep after curing. Bruises,
broken limbs, or liko accidents all
have tho same effect on the meat as
ill-health, and, unless tho animal can
be killed and dressed immediately after such accident it is not best to
use the meat for food. A rise of two
degrees in the animal's temperature
at or just previous to slaughtering is
almost sure to result In stringy.
gluey meat and to create a tendency
to sour in curing.
Condition.—First class meftt cannot bo obtained from animals that
are poor in Mesh. A reasonable
amount of flesh must be present to
give juiciness and flavor to the flesh,
and the fatter an animal is, "within
reasonable limits, the better will bo
the meat. The presence of largo
amounts of fat i.s not essential, however, to wholesome ment und it Is
far moro important tbat an animal
bo in good health than that it be .extremely fat. It is not wise to kill
an animal thut is losing flesh, as the
muscle fibres ore Shrinking in volume
and contain correspondingly less water. As a Consequence the meat is
tougher and dryer. When an animal
is gaining in flesh the opposite, condition obtains and a better Quality
of meat is the result. Also a better
product will be obtained from an
aiiimul in onlv medium i1ck.Ii but
gaining uipidly than from n very fat
animal that is at a standstill or losing in Mesh.
Brooding and Quality.—Quality in
meat   is  largely     dependent     oil     the
health and condition of the   animals
slaughtered, uml yet the best quality
of meat is rarely, if ever, obtained
from poorly bred stock. The desired
"marbling" or admixture of fat and
lean i.s never of the best in scrub
stock, nor do the over-fed show-ring
eiiimuls furnish the ideal iu quality
of meat. There seems to bo a connection between a smooth, even nnd
deeply fleshed animal and nicely
marbled meat that, is not easily explained. Fine bones, soft luxuriant
hair and mellow flesh are always dor
eirable in an animal to be usitl for
meat, as there are indications of
Bmnll wasto and good quality of
Ago for Killing.—Age affects the
flavor and texture of the meat to
quite nn extent. It is a well known
fact that meat from old utiiiiiiils is
more likely to bo tough than that
from young ones. Tbe flesh from
very young animals lacks flavor and
Is watery. An old anitnul properly
fattened and in good health would be
preferred to a younger one in poor
condition. Cattle are fit for beef at
eighteen to twenty months if properly fed, though meat from such animals lucks in flavor. Tho best lioef
will bo obtained from animals from
twenty to forty months old. A calf
should not bo used for veal under six
weeks of age, and is at its best when
about ten weeks old and raised on
the cow. Hogs may bo used at nny
ago after six weeks, but the most
profitable age at Which to slaughter
Is eight to twelve months, Sheep
may be used when two or three
months old nnd at nnv time thereafter. They will be at their best previous to reaching two years of age,
usually at eight  to twelve  months.
Preparation of Animals for Slaughter.—An animal Intended for slaughter should be kept off feed from
twenty-four to thirty-six bonis, otherwise it is impossible to thoroughly
drain out the veins when the animal
Is bled, and a reddish colored unattractive carcass will be the result.
Water should be given freely tip to
the time of slaughter, ns it keeps tho
temperature normal and helps to
wash ihe effete matter out of the
system, resulting in n nicely (adored
'i'he (are of animals previous to
slaughter has a considerable effect on
the keeping qualities of the meat. In
no Instance should nn animal be killed Immediately after n long drive or
afler a rapid run nbout the pasture,
Tho flesh of nn animal that has boen
overheated Is usunllv of n pale color
and very often develops a sour or
putrid odor within three or fmir
dnys nfter being dressed. Tlruises
cause blood  to settle  in  thai   portion
of the body affected, presenting nn
uninviting appearance, and often
cause tin* loss of n considerable portion of the carcass. Therefore, a thirty-six hour fust, plenty of water,

All hough live stock i.s grown un almost every Canadian farm, lhe farmer as a l'Ul? linils it. very tJillldult m

and poultry are iu general use, hut
if is evident that a liberal supply oi
fresh beef would make lhe problem of
preparing meals much eusier for lhe
women of the household, unit would
ensure a moro wholesome uud palatable bill-ol'-fare for lhe family, fhe
average fanner is several miles from
the nearest biilcber, and would lind
it both inconvenient and expensive to
send a member of the family lo town
every clay or two lor fresh meat, especially iis both men und horses uro
apt to" lind their time fully occupied.
Agafn lhe farmer's family could not
consume a beef animal before it
would spoil, so it is out of the question lo think of killing bis own. In
order to make tlie use of fresh meat
possible iu every farm noine. -even
during summer months, ihe Live
stock Commissioner, Ottawa, rorom
mends the more general establishment.
of beef rings, which have lieen sue
cessfully carried on for years iu
some sections of Canada*.
Beef Kings.—'I hese rings are nol.
as the name might indicate, "trusts
for the control of the product ion and
nalo ol" beef, but are groups of farm
ers who co-operate lo supply theii
tables withi fresh meat during 0'.'
summer. The ring is usually coiupos-
ed of sixteen, twenty or I Wonly-foiir
members, although sometimes us
many ns forty are enrolled. lueh
member agrees lo supply one be'f
animal during the summer, and in
order to give plenty of lime lor preparation, tbo members drawlots ihe
previous winter to determine tl'''
order in which tb".V shall contribute
animals. After tlie drawing members
muy exchange numbers if tbey lind
it mutually advantageous., 'Iwo
small families may combine for one
'I'he Animal.—'fhe regulations usually provide that each member shall
supply a steer or heifer under three
years old, sound, healthy and in
good condition, dressing fioni 400 to
500 pounds of beef, and grain-fed for
at least six weeks previous to Killing. If an anitnul is not up lo the
standard it muy be rejected nnd the
owner compelled to supply another,
or it may be accepted at a lower
Valutit ion. Tho decision iu such cases i.s left to tbe secrelary or a duly
appointed committee of inspection.
Killing and Distribution.—A butcher i.s employed to kill and cut up lhe
animals, tlie owner retaining the
head, heart, fat and bide. Tho
amount paid for killing and cutting
up a beast is usually $2 to *.'_>.;Mi,
with an extra dollar if tbe butcher
makes delivery, which i.s not a general practice, Of course it is not
neiessary to employ a professional
butcher, but a man is ripiired who
can do the work neatly and well, and
cut up   tbe carcase nlong tlie usual
lines and  in the same way each time
'lhe    butchon     provides    a    look   lor
each  member and  hangs  t hereon  the
portion  for  each   family   as  lhe  animal is cut up.   Each  ipbor should
hnvo two meat bags with his iiiiine
Oil, so that one of them may always
be at the butcher shop ready lo receive tin* weekly portion. In the case
of some rings each family gels only
one piece; in others a good piece of
tic hind quarter ami an inferior
[liece of the fore quarter, or vice
versa; in 'still others u member gels
n bOllillg piece, a roust, and a piece
of steak each week. lhe various
CUtS are numbered, nnd an accural"
record is kept by the butcher of the
quality   nnd   weight,    of   beef   received
by each member.    Jn this way it  is
possible to arrange for each family
to receive approximately tl.e samo
weight of meal, and (he same proportion of vitluablo and cheap cuts
during the season. At the end of tho
Slimmer the secretary of the organization furnishes each member with a
Statement of Ibe year's operations,
compiled from the butcher's records.
As no two animals will have been of
tlie snifie weight, small balances will
have to change bunds in order lo
equalize mutters. As a standard
price is ulways agreed upon ul lhe
beginning of the season, say li ve or
six celils per pound, there are no
disputes at the close. Members who
have received more beef thun they
supply puy for the difference ul the
price agreed upon; those who have
put in more than tliey have received
are paid  in the same Way.
'fhe Advantages,—Wherever it has
been tried this system lias given excellent results, as is shown by the
fact that it is diilicult to ram admission to tlie rings, as there is no
inclination to drop out. 'lhe farmers' wives and daughters un- particularly well pleased, lis lhe abundance of fresh meat ai iheir command simplilies the question of providing suitable meals. 'I'lien the
fnnners gel their beef al the actual
cosl paying no more for the best cuts
than they would for lhe cheapest
they conld buy in retail. L'lldel' the
operation of the beef ring each family
gels its portion tvllhln a few hours
after killing, so that tliere is little
difficulty in keeping tho meal fresh
for nearly a week, 'lhe usual method
is to use lhe steak and roust first,
und put ihe boiling piece Into brine
or u refrigerator until needed.

S«vcr»l Uses   ol   tlio Cover Crops
uud KeHiaiiu* for Them.
On -May 17th the Dominion fruit
Inspectors met in tho orchard ut the
Central fcJxperlmolrtfti bui'itr and discussed cover crops. The subject Wus
introduced by Mr. VV. T. Macoun,
horticulturist, who guve bis expo.ri-
ence Willi dillel'eut plan's "used Tor
this purpose uud told whu.1 lie considered were the principal uses of
cover crops. lb; said thut lhe importance of a covering for lhe soil
in winter wus strongly impressed ou
him after the winter of IKII.VUli when
muny trees were root hilled at thu
Central Kxperiitienlal Farm. Since
tluit time the subject hud received
much attention by his deportment.
TllO main uses of the cover crop are:
To hold lhe mow in winter und thus
protect the roots of tlie trees; to
furnish vegetable mat tor to plough
under in the spring for tlie purpose
of obtaining humus and nitrogen;
and to act as a catch crop iu autumn
to prevent leaching of plant food
mado available during thu summer.
llo recommended, us the best general
practice for growers, cultivating the
soil until near or aliout the middle
of *luly when the trees have made
most of their growth and do not need
so much moisture, und then seeding
down to Common or Mammoth lieu
Clover sown broadcast at. tho rate of
3 2 pounds per acre or with Hairy
Vetch at tho rate of !iU to 40 pounds
per aero. Sown at that timo these
plants usually make a good cover by
autumn, At the Contrail lixperlmont-
u 1 Farm Hairy Vetch was sown on
June 18th, 1903, in drills *Jrt inches
apart at the rate of 30 pounds per
acre. Those received two Cultivations
and by the end of the lirst week of
August the plants were meeting lietween tho rows. Ily sowing earlier us
in this caso a belter stand may be
Obtained und by cultivation moisture is conserved while the plunls
arc getting established. Twenty
pounds per acre sown in drills iu this
way wero found quite sullicient to
make a good cover. There was practically no injury from mice where
cover crops wero used as Iheir depredations were prevented by using
either ordinary building paper or
Wood veneers. No fruit grower should
neglect having a cover crop us a line
bearing orchard in bare soil might be
dest rov cd which would have been
saved   luul     tliere   been   u   cover  crop.
Proof of this was furnished by the

Tho seed for the cover crop shouhl

Clergymen in great numbers remark
In these days upon the difficulty ut in
terestlng audiences, intic'b more of
drawing audiences, In New York 11
lute census indicates the sparse ratio
of population attending divine worship
both iu Uouuiii Catholic and lu Protestant churches, Kellglon Is no less fundamental or needful, but the attention of people seems harder to gain.
Sensation and advertisement attempt
the problem, but the desired results
do uot seem to follow. Strange and
faraway subjects do not startle the
people, and many clergymen droop in
enthusiasm nnd take on pessimistic
views. The same cry goes up from the
theatrical managers along Broadway,
who decry the small audiences and tbo
hick of appreciative response.
Newspapers by the million tell the
world's news, coupled with Action and
philosophy, often of a high order, often exaggerated rubbish. Biasing headlines no longer make readers shudder.
tireat accidents and foul murders seem
no longer to stir theni ns of yore. H
seems to be n satiated age, well fed,
well Instructed In matters as the.v go,
but difficult to Interest, formerly the
traveled man wus the joy of bis
friends. Now nil seem to have traveled, and few will listen. Formerly the
college graduate was a center of Interest and influence. Now college men
are legion in every community. Do
they command us much respect? Formerly the boy looked forward to college days and wondered at the mystic
life he hoped to live. Now that is all
lived and experienced in the preparatory school, and the boy goes solemnly
forth to the university with no smile
upon his face, a sober youth hard to
interest. He also belongs to the satiated age, and this makes it more tl itli -
cult for those who are called upon to
handle him. Iu short, iu every avenue
of life knowledge has been spread almost to satiation.
However, though this erudition or experience be superficial rather tban fundamental, we can gain nt least some
comfort when we consider that we are
probably part of the age and are quite
as difficult to Interest as those whom

The  Fatal   Hour.
Much comment has been excited by
the circumstance that out of ibe recent
wreck of the Darlington hotel in New
York there emerged unscathed some
men who had seemed to be exposed to
a danger equaling that of the victims.
Yet there was nothing that does not
constitute a feature of almost every
catastrophe in which life is lost.
A resident of New York passing
through Omaha ami having a few minutes to spare once bethought him to
call on n friend. Beaching the office he
found the friend absent and for half
an hour. As the visitor was at bis
friend's desk penning an explanatory
line the wall of a neighboring building
collapsed, and a toppling chimney killed him where be sat.
The Omaha man had occupied n
ehuir nt that desk for years during
business hours. The New Yorker hud

formerly had no market beyond u radius of n few dozen miles from the
wheatneld. can now be shipped by
railway and steamship to any part of
the world, nnd lu consetiuence every

In like manner new facilities for export have doubled, trebled and iu some
eases quadrupled the price of rice ln

Could Not Eat op Work-Powders and Quick Cures
of no Avail -Lasting Cure Obtained From
This case of Mr. Barber well illustrates the way in which llr. Chase's
Nervo l''ood cures headaches.
Ho tried thc so-called "quick cures"
first, but without obtaining benefit.
It is a well known fact that such
remedies when they do bring temporary relief do so with a tremendous
waste of nerve force and consequent
injury to the system.
Dr. Chase's Nervo Food cures by
enriching the blood, vitalising the
nerves and building up tbe system.
Headaches, as well as all other symptoms of an exhausted system, disappear before its influence. Its cures
lasting because it removes the cause
of tho trouble.
Mr. O. Harbor, Simcoe, Ont., writes:
"Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is a splendid medicine. 1 was troubled for a
long   time   with   headaches,    which
would come on about once a Week
with such violence lhat 1 could not
eat or do my work. 1 tried headache powders und quick cures, which
did no good.
"About eight months oro I took
six boxes of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
and I have not been troubled with
headache since. It made a thorough
and lasting cure."
Mrs. James Clancy, 714 Water
street, Peterboro", (Int., states:—"!
have used four boxes of Dr. Chase's
Nerve. Food, and found them an excellent medicine. 1 was troubled
more or less for ninteen years with
severe headaches, which wade me
useless as far os accomplishing my
work was concerned.
"Tho, Nervo Food seemed to build
me up generally, und so made a
thorough euro of my old trouble. I
would not think of being without Dr.
Chuse's Nerve Food iu the house,
and would strongly recommend anyone Suffering as 1 did to give it a
trial, It succeeded iu my case after
a  great,   many  remedies  hud  failed."

Slocan, B. C
FRIDAY, AUGUST bth, 1904.
The dominion government has introduced a new alien labor act—a sop
to the workingmen tp assist the Liberals in tbe next elections.
The Liberals have decided to oppose the Conservatives in the bye-
election in Lillooet, their candidate
being D. A. Stoddart A. McDonald
is the Conservative nominee. He was
elected by acclamation in the general
contest and he should have no difficulty in holding his own now.
There be strenuous times ahead for
the people of Nelson, by reason of the
increased number of newspapers in
the place. The Ledge has just gone
in from New Denver aud the Tribune
has entered the daily field, making
four weeklies and two dailies. There
is a finish in sight for some one.
Not a single Chinaman has come into the country sinee the poll tax wns
raised. As a result the local government has lost a source of large income.
A few days ago a cheque for $225,000
was made out for the province by the
federal government, being their share
of the receipts from Chinese in 1903.
That business conditions in the city
are not as lively ns one could wish
them to be is to be acknowledged,still
there can be no denying the fact that
the mining industry, which is after all
the mainstay of the district, is gradually recovering strength aud activity.
The contrast between the present situation in mining and that of a year
ago tends towards confidence, and the
promise is for further expansion. Ore
shipments are the index of progress
in any camp, and in this respect the
dry ore belt has reason to be optimistic. The local output is about twice
that of a year ago, and the values received and prices realized are higher-
There are just as many, if not more,
men employed, and the outlook for
the winter season is infinitely more
encouraging. As if to further re-assure the people, there is the authoritative statement in this issue of the
condition of affairs at the Ottawa, u
property that is paying handsome
profits each month. In two yeurs it
has paid for its purchase nnd all development, with the mine in such
shape as to command a price nearing
quarter of a million. Let anyone read
Mr. Noble's remarks and he must be
convinced there is a future for the
camp. Recent developments at the
Black Prince,Chapleau and Kilo must
also have an encouraging effect. Capital is regaining confidence in the
camp and the result will be beneficial.
W. F. Robertson, provincial mineralogist, endorses the merits and capabilities of the camp, and expresses surprise tbat more properties are not
working. His words nro the official
mark of commendation aud that ought
to suffice. Because the town is experiencing a depression, don't throw
up your hands in despair. The camp
is all right and will prove a winner.
