IN riEriORY OF QUEEN
"  SB
IMPRESSIVE SKKVIOK   HELD   HEM*
ON   SATURDAY.
Biggest Procession Ever Heen tn Blocan—
All the Secret Societies Participate,
Together Wltls tho Band, Citizens anil
School Children.
Saturday last, proclaimed by the
government as a day of mourning in
memory of our late revered sover
el(*n, Queen Victoria, wns most fittingly and loyally observed here.
All business whs suspended throughout the town and the stores closed up.
The weather wns perfect, enabling
everyone to tako part in the proceedings.   Early in  the  afternoon the
members of the Oddfellows and the
Orange societies and Miners' Union
gathered in their respective halls,
preparatory to taking part in the
procession. The various muslciajis
in town gathered together and formed a band, adding much to the success ofthe affair.
At two o'clock tho parade started
from the corner of Delaney avenue
and Main street and marched slowly
ronnd the town by way of Delaney
ave, Nelson street, Fletcher avc, and
Main street to the Music hall. Tlie
band whs In the lead, followed by
the Miners' Union, Oddfellows, the
Orangemen, school children and citizens. About 250 persons were in the
parade, thc various societies being in
regalia and all wearing badges of
mourning. It was a stirring sight
and reflected the greatest credit upon the town, showing plainly the
loyal spirit permeating the entire
population.
In the hall standing room was
barely possible, so great was the concourse of people. Tho stngc was becomingly decorated, a large painting
ot Her Majesty being in the background and another in front of the
pulpit. These were beautifully drop
ed, as were also tho Union Jack and
the Stars and' Stripes. Tbe service
was an impressive one and was sol
einnly carried out. Rev. M. D. Mc
Kee had charge of the proceedings,
while Mrs. W. J. Adcock presided at
the piano. The cotabineu choirs of
the town led the singing, supported
by an orchestra. W. J. Andre* s
read the lesson of the day aud S. H.
Clement ga*ve the historical address.
He covered the ground pretty tlmr-
oughly.aud showed thc advancement
made by thc nation under the benefi
cent rule of Victoria.
Mr. McKee, in his address, bronght
out prominently the lessons to be
learned from the Queen's life and
reign, holding that Great Britain
owed her greatness as a nation to thc
maintenance, of the open Bible. Ho
compared tho Queen's reign with
that of Solomon's and contended that
the old Biblical prophecy concerning
the latter had been truly realized in
Victoria. And above all, loyalty to
King and country would ever hold
the empire iu unity and greatness.
God Save the King followed and was
sang with heartfelt loyalty by the
audience. The proceedings closed
with the "Dead March in Saul,"
played by Mrs. Adcock, after which
the gathering slowly dispersed. The
occasion will ever be remembered by
thc citizens.

mineral stringers are get! ing together

In all values.
IRON HOr.SK STARTS UP.
Another Ten Mile Property That Will
Slake a Mine.
Mark Manley returned from Spokane on Friday and at once set about
getting things into shape for starting
work on the Iron Horse group, Ten
Mile. On Monday An*-;i*s McLean, of
Silverton, one of the owners, went up
the creek with four or five men to got
the camp straightened up for active
development. It is the intention io
confine tho work to sinking the
winze, taking out and sacking the
ore as they go. When room is made
the force will bo increased.
As is well known, the Iron Horse
was bonded some months ago to W.
D. Wrighter and others in Spokane.
A company was then formed to work
it, known as the Burlington Mining
Co. Mr. Wrighter went back to
Pittsburg to placo the stock and succeeded in turning it all over to a syndicate of very wealthy men,who will
not market their holdings. Close to
half a million dollars has been set
apart for development purposes and
the company will develope tho group
flat in front of the Arlington ore
chutes. Of course,there was nothing
to tlie report, and the laugh is on the
rescuing gang.
BLACK PRINCE TIKD UP.
Canadian Gold Fields Secures an Option
on the Property.
For some time past -negotiations
have "been going on for the purchase
of the Black Prince group of claims,
at tho head of Springer creek, and
on  Tuesday  the necessary papers
were signed.   W. H. Jeffrey, engineer of thc Canadian Gold Fields, se
cured thc p*^perty.   He is at present
in Montreal and tlie papeitfhave been
forwarded to him.   The deal is an
option lasting till the 15th of March,
with a subsequent bond extending
over Id months nnd calling for the
payment of $75,000.   Ten per cent of
this is to be paid down, 10 per cent
in six months; 15 per cent on Dec 15;
20 per cent on March 15 and June 15;
and the balance on Sept. 15,1902.
Included in the deal are the Darius,
Dundas  No. 2, Summerside,   Black
Prince fraction,and the Four Friends
claims, these claims being lumped to
cether at S25.000 and the Black
Prince at $50,000.    The fortunate
owners of the group arc D. Arnot, J,
C, Shook, Frank Sherry, P. Scbom-
bcrg, C. Murphy, John Elliot, Leo
and Jos. Dorion, and W. E. Bole.

Opening of Methodist Church.
Sunday last the new Methodist
church, formerly thc Main building,
on Main street, was duly ami fittingly
opened to public worship. Rev. Mr.
Sanford, of Sandon, preached both
morning and evening to big congregations, and the monetary response
was liberal. Thc services of the day
wtre most enjoyable, Mrs. Sanford
singing a solo in tho morning and
Mrs. B. Robertson in the evening.
Both acquitted themselves with credit.
The Interior of tho church presents
an attractive appearance, being tin-
ished in terra.cotta tints. There are
now three places of worship in town,
with a Roman Catholic church in thc
adjoining suburb of Brandon,

Says the Kaslo Kootcnaian: It is
doubtful if very many of the countless thousands of poetic efforts that
have flooded the press of the Empire
since the passing away of the great
Queen at Osborne, last week, have
proven the equal of that contributed
to The Slogan Drill by R. T. Anderson, the gifted young bard of
Lemon Creek. The youthful poet
gives promise of a remarkable career,
and the Slocan ie proud to be able to
place him among the products of tlie
richest distrlot on earth.
Phoenix Proving a Winner.
The Phoenix, under the management of T. S. .Dunbar, is rapidly
turning out to be a pronounced winner.   Drlftin*» is boiDg.OQUtio.ued on
Only a poor, old, wretched tramp.
Ragged and dirty, matted and damp,
.•Searing the unniistakcable stamp
Of one of the genus Hobo.
One of humanity, who has stood
Against working himself for his daily food,
One of that famous brotherhood
That goes by the name of Hobo.
A wreck on the Sea of Life adrift,
Where gales are frequent and currents swhV
Where thc clouds of adversity never lift
O'er thc derelict soul of a Hobo.
A useless hulk 'mid the worldly strife,
Where storm v weather is all too rife,    -
Where thc ship that bit ties tho odds of Life
Sail6 scornfully by the Hobo.
Toss'd abemt fay the winds of fate,
Heading a course that is never straight,
Till the gulfs of Death, that for all await,
Close over tlie helpless Hobo.
Only a "bum"—does it matter the**.
If his soul flits forth, how it goes, or when?
He is simply a leech on his fellow men,
And goes by the name of Hobo.
A day there nomcth, when Death will strike,
As it couieth to rich and poor alike,
And Weary Willie, or Mouldy Mike,
Will go as a simple Hobo.
Then, the flame will fade from the ftick'ring lamp,
And the soul will Hit from its Earthly camp,
And the world will be rid of another tramp,
And one of the genus Hobs.
Bearing tho sonl ofa man withal,
Tho'dwarted and stunted, compress'd and small;
The end of the trail is not ending all,
To even the soul of the Hobo.    ,   .

in a thorough manner. The winze
is to bo sunk on the vein to a depth
of 100 feet and then drifts run in
either direction. A crosscut will also
be run to tap the big lead, which parallels the small vein 200 feet to the
west.
It is on the programme for the coming season to elect new camp, construct a wagon road, aiuL instal a
nrst-class hoisting plant. Ifthesitu-
ation warrants it, no time will be lost
in erecting a mill to treat tho oro.
However, as it ls,lbere is a paystrcak
of 10 Inches of ore that averages 170
oz to the ton in silver, so that the property can be made to pay from tho
inception. Tlie company has faith in
the Iron Horse and they will back it
up with the expenditure ofa pile of
money. The advent of this progressive American element on to Ten
Mile will infuse new life into that
part of the camp ond do much to
counteract the evil influences work
ing against it. Several properties
there are to be worked this summer
and a number of sales will be made.
Discovered 11 Mine's Neat.
A couple of young foreigners had
the town wildly excited on Tuesday
last. Thoy were credited with circulating a story that two months ago
thoy had taken the body ofa man
from one of thc cabins near the river
and buried the remains. The man
had had his throat cut and other
ghastly details were, added. Tin-
story soon gained wide currency, and
Tuesday afternoon a score of men
Iter ted digging potholes all over tlie
group has been centred on the Black
Prince, which has over 500 feet of
drifts and raises run. Five carloads
of ore have been shipped from the
property, giving excellent returns,
and there are large bodies of ore now
in sight. During the past few months
Frank Sherry has been working the
Black Prince under lease and making good money. The group is widely known and needs little more to be
said of it. It is one of the few galena
propositions in the camp and promises
to make a big mine. At present it is
looking splendid, ore showing everywhere, while the lower crosscut being driven in will open a vast
amount of stoping territory. There
are first class buildings en the ground
and the mine is easy ot access at all
times, Adjoining it is the Two
Friends, while the Regina and Hampton and others are in the same locality, all being 1J miles from the Arlington. The Canadian Goldflelds is
one of the strongest corporations in
the province, and in their competent
hands toe Black Prince will rapidly
come to the front asa dividend payer,
helping materially the progress of the
camp.

La grippe has laid low many a sufferer here this week.
A small delegation from here went

The shipments from the entire Slocan are In excess of 2000 tons.
Gradually the various mining centres aro adopting the eight hour law,
the latest being in Butte, Montana,
where all the properties controlled by
the Anaconda company have put into
force this just and laudable measure,
scommeneing today. It seems ages
ago since the law came into force in
this province, so completely has the
Agitation anent its adoption been put
,in the background.
Canada's alien labor law is a first-

Slocan had a painful illustration of its
workings two yearsago,showing how
/completely this prohibitive law falls

firms in that city for alleged importations of labor from tbe United States,

Daring January three promising
•mining properties were bonded in
the camp for sums aggregating $128,-
000, being the forerunners of a long
list of transactions that are certain to
be closed during the ensuing season.
This division now occupies a leading
.position among the mining sections of
the province, and its resources have
become widely known and recogniz-
■ed among mining men in the weet.
No other camp offers better induce-
inents for capital, of which there will
be an abundance offering for Investment this summer. The deals already effected are a great advertisement for ns and will help along the
forward movement. For this and
many other reasons, the people of this
favored burg are very confident and
,cheery.    ___________

good effect.
Hssre la as Cuckoo,
A letter addressed to the defunct
News was placed in The Drill box
Wednesday. Ii was from a Toronto
advertising agency, enclosing copy
of an advertisement for tea. It was
to be two inches double column, in
preferred position, and changed
weekly for one month. Papers were
also to be sent to agency and advertiser. For all of this the News would
get the munificent price of ten conts
per inch gross. Then eastern people
wonder why there is no salvatiou for
western newspaper men.

AN
KNOMSHMAN'S     TKIBCTK     TO
BURNS.
The following linen were written by
Thomas Holwell on the occasion of the
celebration of the centenary of Burns'
birthday at Shakespeare, Perth Co,,
Ont., to his friend Alex Mitchell:
No warrior's theme is ours tonight
Of laurels won in bloody fight,
Or battle field's soul-sickening sight,
So often lost and won.
A nobler cause now calls us forth;
In memory of departed worth—
We're met to celebrate the birth
Of Scotia's favorite son.
One hundred summers' suns have shone,
A hundred winters come and gone,
Bince Bobby Burns, the plowman s son
A child of earth became.
And many a summer's sun shall glow,
And manv a writer come and go,
E're our fiearta shall cease to overflow
In honor of his name.
There's not a Briton that should fail,
Be he Anglo-Saxon, Celt or Gael,
The poet's natal day to hail
Who sang so sweet a lay.
For there's none among the living men,
Tho he live for three-score years and ten
Shall e'er behold his like attain,
The Bard's centennial day.
His youth was spent mid toil and care,
His path beset with many a snare,
But Scotia's bard did ne'er despair-
He won his way to fame.
With noble soul he walked erect,
And cared not for the world's neglect;
This night well drink in deep respect
A bumper to his name.
The bard, although of humble birth,
Despised the great ones of the earth
If destitute ofreal worth
Or oppressions of mankind.
He valued not their titles vain,
Their spacious halls or wide domain,
Their noble blood he did disdain,
If not of noble mind.
From humble life the poet drew
His characters, so bold and true,
And placed before the fancy's view
Their faults and virtue** too.
And who so able to portray
The voice and virtues of the day,
As he who had in every way
The various scenes been through.
Wherever Scotia's sons may roam,
I care not from what part they come,
Be it Lowland dale or Highland home,
They all the Bard revere.
Be their path where Indian suns do glow,
Or where the southern breezes blow,
Or 'mid Canadian frost and snow,
His momory will be dear.
80 long as Scotia's mountains stand
Shall annual meet the social band,
In native home or foreign land,
N,  To celebrate his name.
Ani long aa time its ages roll
8hail all admire his noble aoul,
Then let us drain the flowing bowl
In honor of his name.
KOBKBT   BURNS.
The business of Robert Burns was
love-making All love is good, but
some kinds of love are better than
•others. Through Burns' perchant for
falling in love we have his songs.
A Burns biograph is simply a record
ef his love affairs, and the spasms of
repentance that followed his lapses are
made manifest in religious verse. *
Poetry is the very earliest form of
literature, and is the natural expression
ef a parson in love; and 1 suppose we
might aa well admit the fact at once,
that without love there would be no
poetry.
Poetry is the bill and coo of sex.
All poets are lovers, and all lovers,
either actual or potential, are poets.
Potential poets are the people who read
poetry, and so without lovers the poet
would never have a market for his
wares.
If you cease to be moved by religious
emotions; if your spirit is no longer
surged by music and yon do not linger
over certain lines of poetry, It is because the love instinct in your heart
has withered to ashes of roses. It is
Idle to Imagine Bobby Burns as a staid
member of the Kirk; had he been, there
would now be no Bobby Burns.
Tbe literary ebullitions of Robert
Burns, he himself has told us, began
shortly after he reached the age of in
discretion; and the occasion was his
being paired in the hay-field, according
to Scottish custom, with a bonnie lassie.
This custom of pairing still endures,
and is what the students of sociology
call an expeditious move.
The Scotch are great economists—the
greatest in the world. Adam Smith,
the father of the science of economics,
was a .Scotchman and Draper, author of
"A History of Civilization," flatly declares that Adam Smith's "Wealth of
Nations" has influenced the people of
■earth for good more than any book ever
written—save none. The .Scotch are
great conservators of energy.
The practice ot pairing men and
women in the hay-field gets the work
done. One man and woman going
down the grass-grown path afield might
linger and dally by the way. They
would never make hay, but a company
of a dozen or more men and women
would not only roach the field but would
sio a lot of work. In Scotland the bay-
haivest is short—when tho giass is tn
bloom, just right to make the beat hay,
it must be cut. And so the men and
women, the boys and girls sally forth
It is a jolly picnic time, looked forward
to with fond anticipation, and gazed
back upon with sweet sad memories, or
otherwise as tbe case may be.
But they all make hay while the sun
shines and count it joy. Liberties are
allowed during haying time that otherwise would bo declared scandalous;
during baying time the Kirk waives
her censor's right and priest and people
mingle joyously.
Wives are not jealous during hay
harvest, and husbands never fault-find
because they each tret even by allowing
a mutual license.
In Scotland during haying time every
married man works alongside of some
other man's wife. To the psychologist
it is somewhat curious how the desire
for propriety is over-ridden by a stronger
desire—the desire for the shilling. Tbe
Scotch farmer says "anything to get the
hay in"—and by loosening a bit of the
strict bands of social custom the hay is
harvested.
In the hay-harvest the law of natural
selection holds; and trysts continue year
after year. Old lovers meet, touch
hands in a friendly scuffle for a fork,
drink from the same jug, recline at noon
and eat lunch in the shade of a friendly
stock and talk to heart's content as they
Maud Muller on a summer's day
Of course this joyousnesa of the haying-time is not wholly monopolized by
the Scotch. Haven't you seen the jolly
haying parties in Southern Germany,
France, Switzerland and the Tyrol?
How the bright costumes of the men
and jaunty attire of the women gleam
in the glad sunshine! But the practice
of pairing is carried to a degree of per
fection in Scotland that 1 have not
noticed elsewhere. Surely it is a great
economic scheme!
It is like that invention of a Connecticut man which utilizes the ebb and
flow of the ocean tides to turn a gristmill. And it seems queer that no one
has ever attempted to utilize the waste
of dynamic force involved in the main-
tainance of the company sofa.
In Ayrshire I have started out with a
haying party of twenty—ten men and
ten women—at six o'clock in the morning and worked until six at night. I
never worked so hard or did so much.
All day long there was a fire of jolly
jokes and jibes, interspersed with song,
while beneath all ran a gentle hum of
confidential interchange of thought.
The man who owned the field was there
to direct our efforts and to urge us on
by merry raillery, threat and joyous
rivalry. The point in this—we did the
work.
Take heed, ye Captains of Industry,
and note this truth, that when men and
women work together, under right
influences, much good is accomplished
and the work ia pleasurable. Of course
there are vinegar-faced philosophers
who say that the Scotch custom of pair
ing young men and maiden in the hay
field is not without its effect on esoterics,
also on vital statistics; and I'm willing
to admit there may be danger in the
scheme, but life is a dangerous business
anyway—few get out of it alive—Elbert
Hubbard, in "Little Journeys to the
domes of English Authors."
COAL   tH    B. C.
The finding of extensive coal deposits
such as we have in the Similkameen
and Nicola Lake districts, opens up
wonderful possibilities in the establish
ing of a great industry. Mining for tbe
"Black Diamond" has built up Nanaimo
on Vancouver Island. Several busy
towns have sprung up along the C.P.R
Crow's Neat Route which are entirely
supported by the coal mines. The won
derful extent of tbe coal fields in that
district can be imagined from the folio1
ing statistics:
The Crow's Nest Coal Company are
paying taxes at the rate of $25 per acre
on 10,209 acres of coal land.
They are working on a block of 480
acres which will yield «i00,000,000 tons
of coal, at 8,000 tons per day the output
will last 40 years, or an average of
1,000,000 tons per year.
It ie estimated that the 10,2C9 acres
will, with scientific mining, produce
90,000 tons per acre, or a grand total of
718,810,000 tons, having a valuation of
$1,887,620,000 less cost of mining and
interest of capital invested.
When it is considered that the coal
supply of B. C. at the present time is
greatly exceeded by the demand and
that thcro is a great scarcity of coal in
all populous centres on the American
continent to-day, the value of our coal
deposits cannot be overworked. With
two first-class markets, the Boundary
country and the Pacific coast cities, the
Similkameen coal fields will, as soon as
railroad facilities are afforded the district, become the most important producers in the province. The most important point to be considered in the
working of coal mines is the distance
from the mine to the consumer.
With adequate transportation the
coal mines around Princeton will be
situated at an equal distance from the
smelting points in the Boundary and
the cities of Vancouver and New Westminster. The haul to any of these
points will not exceed 150 miles and
will place our mines in such a position
tbat they will be able to compete successfully with any of the coal producing
centres in British Columbia—Similkameen Star.
CANADA'S   MINKRAI.    INDDSTRV.
The mineral industry of Canada has
become of such importance that The
Engineer and Mining Journal of New
York has started the publication of a
supplement to be issued monthly, and
to be devoted especially to the mining
and metallurgical interests of Canada.
"The progress of Canada In this respect
has been marked during recent years,"
says the E. & M. Journal. "The value
and variety of its mineral production
has gained rapidly and steadily. In
the far West and North the mines of
British Columbia and of the Yukon
have made Canada a gold producer of
great importance, its total output of
»26,000,000 in 1900 exceeding tbat of
Russia and falling below those of the
United States and Australasia only.
British Columbia also contributes its
production of silver, copper and lead
that of copper especially growing In im
portance. Western Ontario in the
centre and Nova Scotia on the east add
to the gold output.
"In coal and mineral fuel Canada has
extensive resources on both the Atlantic
and Pacific coasts, while both have val
uable deposits of iron ore, to which
must be added the great deposits of the
Michipicoten and Atlkokan ranges in
Ontario, the development of which has
only just been begun. Nor must we
forget tbe nickel ores of Sudbury dis
trict, the most valuable of the kind in
the world.
"Canadians in the past have not fully
realized the value of their minerals, but
they are now doing more to develop
and utilize them than ever before. This
is especially the case with the iron ores
The great works of the Dominion Steel
Company in Cape Breton; the Hamilton
and Midland furnaces in Ontario; and
other works projected and in progress
will help to give Canada the important
place as an iron and steel making country to which her resources in fuel and
ores entitle her.
MINING   IN   PORTUGAL.
H. R. Jastrow, in the Mining & En
gineering Journal of New Vork, says:—
Possibly no European country that possesses mineral deposits to any extent
has been so unfortunate in the develop
ment of its mining industries as Portu
gal. Among the list of natural reeour
ces existing in this little kingdom,mines
occupy a front rank. In many districts
there are deposits of iron, antimony,
copper, tin and coal. These minerals,
which abound in various sections, would
be a source of considerable wealth to
the country under a system of serious
and energetic development. But up to
the present little or no practical pro
gress has been made in this direction,
with the result that the country is
gradually being left far behind in in
dust rial and economic advancement.
Thus far, altogether K0 mining con
cessions have been granted in Portugal,
covering an area of about 110,320 acres;
512 concessions represent mines with an
area of 67,886 acres, producing metallic
ores; 29, with 18,840 acres, produce coal;
12 are coal and iron mines (22,700 acres),
while 7 concessions represent ground
containing deposits, amounting to 1,894
acres, of asphalt, graphite, asbestos, etc
Even the mines, for which concessions
have been obtained, are little developed,
the majority being untouched, notwith
standing the fact that few need deep
boring;. On the contrary, almost •> all
the large deposits can easily be worked
for many years before heavy expenditures for shaft sinking will become
necessary
Practically the only Portuguese mines
in actual operation at present are the
copper deposits at San Domingos and
Tinoca; the coal mines of Pejao.Buarcos,
Pascal deBaixo and Ban Pedro daCova;
tbe manganese mines of Freixal, For-
ragudo and Cerro das Camas Freixas;
the lead mines of Bracal and Malbada;
the Iron mines of Ay res and San Bar
tholomeco and the antimony mines of
Tapada do Padre and Valle de Achas
In these mines the production is comparatively small, only about 8,000 per
sons in all being employed in the com
biiieil industries.
Aside from matters of finance.another
great obstacle in the way of Portugal's
growth as a mineral producer is the
serious lack of transportation facilities
Almost all the mines are located in the
interior, some distance from both thc
railroads and the sea. The shipment
of ores to the chief markets is therefore
attended with considerable expense
and as long as the want of such facilities
is felt little will doubtless be done in
•he mines farthest inland. There are,
however, numerous deposits so rich in
ores that it would pay to lay tracks
either to the main railroad lines or to
the water.
During the past year Portugal's iron
mines have been the subject of careful
investigation and study at the hands of
engineers.owing to the fact that several
enterprising Portuguese have conceived
the plan of building blast furnaces and
iron works and thus laying the foundation for a home iron industry. There
is plenty of iron ore, easily accessible,
and the deposits are sufficiently rich to
provide for an extensive industry for
many years, not only enough for home
consumption but for export. Coal Is
also plentiful. San Pedro da Cova
alone possesses 4,000 acres of anthracite,
while the supply of soft anthracite in
San Pedro Is estimated at 11,600,000
tons. In addition there is a large
supply of brown coal in Leiria, the
suitability of which has already been
proven, as well as the lump coal mines
of Cabo Mondege, whose wealth is considered inestimable, and which will produce easily between 80,000 and 100,000
tons annually. Other products useful
in the steel industry that exist in quantities, and of good quality, are limestone and manganese ore.
CABK   OF   HKAI/ril.
Our great annual plague of colds is in
full swing. Almost everybody is either
about to have, or has, or is just recovering from a cold. Cold-cures are selling
by the ton. The druggists and the
doctors and the undertakers are reaping
a great harvest.
There are three main causes of this
plague:
First—Indigestion from overeating
aud rapid eating.
Second—Too heavy clothing.
Third—Overheated houses.
A human being who is always shoveling in another meal upon the still undigested preceding meal is always in
condition to catch anything that may
be going. As the cold is the easiest
thing to catch, all these overeaters havo
colds.
We dress for the house as if we lived
outdoors—especially the men. The
average man, sitting in his office or at
home,with the temperature higher thau
it would be on a summer day, has on a
thick winter suit and a thick suit of
underwear—enough covering adequately to protect him if he were walking
about briskly in the open air on a bitter
winter day. The women are more
sensible in this respect, hence their
greater freedom from colds.
Our houses are heated with an almost
poisonous dry heat to a point that
makes the skin shrivel and crack.
Do yon notice your furniture, how it
dries out and falls to pieces? Yet
American furniture is especially seasoned and put together with a particular
kind of glue with a view to meeting the
American conditions of fierce dry heat.
If the furniture can't stand this heat,
what must be its effect upon the body ?
Living rooms that are chilly are not
healthful. But they are less unhealthful
than living rooms that are filled with
hot, dry, stale air.
If you wish to avoid colds you must
avoid the cause of colds.
SWEDEN'S   NEW   IRON   ORB   MINES.
Samuel Hill, son-in-law of James J.
Hill, and prominent in railroad circles
in Minnesota, has just returned from
abroad. In reference to the new railroad being constructed in Northern
Sweden under the Arctic circle, he
says: There have been extensive discoveries of iron ore in that region and
the new road now extends 260 miles
from the iron range to the Baltic sea.
In the other direction a railroad is being
graded and will be finished within a
year that will enable this ore to be
shipped to Atlantic tide water. Mr.
Hill says that, unlike the Minnesota
ore, which is as coarse as gravel, the
Swedish ore is as fine as sand. "It
seems strange," he continued, "that the
best railroad in Europe, from a tonnage
standpoint, should be laid under the
Arctic circle These trains haul 40
cars, each having a capacity of 26 tons
or what railroad men would call trains
of 1,000 revenue tons. When we remember that the discovery of soft iron
ore in Minnesota affected Britain's trade
more seriously than anything that had
happened in 20 years, the wonderful
possibilities following the shipment of
this across the channel to England becomes apparent. Returning cargoes of
coal for the operation of the road and
for general purposes still further indicate the importance of this ore discovery and the transportation problem involved in It. Thus far no coal has been
discovered tributary to the ore."—Iron
and Steel.
TWAIN   CHKBRED   THEM   UP.
"Well,' said Mark Twain to she
amateur photographer, "you didn't
miss me altogether, as the sheriff of
the jail at Pretoria did. I visited
there and tried to cheer up the prisoners by telling them that if they
weren't in that jail they'd probably
be in some other. I told them they
ought to be thankful that they didn't
have to worry about where their next
meal was coming from—as I did.
"The Bheriff liked me so well he
wanted to keep me tor a year or two,
but I told him that I had promised to
patronize home industries when I
needed any jails.
"He said he was sorry, for he'd
rather have me for a prisoner since
he had heard me lecture that any
one he knew."
It was on his first visit to the Pretoria jail, to see the Johannesburg
reformers, that Mark Twain Bald It
had been the dream of his life to get
Into jail, but misfortune dogged his
footsteps. Whenever he had committed anything it always happened
that no witnesses were around, and
he had never had sufficient reputation for veracity to get himself convicted without corroborative evidence.
"There is no place on earth," he
said, "where a man could get such
uninterrupted quiet as In fail. 'Pilgrim's Progress' would never have
been written if Bunyan had not been
in jail, and Cervantes was privileged
to suffer in durance vile, and thus
was enabled to write 'Don Quixote.'
These two roamed about on the wings
ot imagination describing perils and
enjoying the intoxicating delights of
war without personal danger."
Twain ended by telling the prisoners that the insidious charms of jail
life would increase the longer they
remained in jail. He said he felt
this so strongly that he meant .0 ask
Oom Paul to extend their sentences.

Influence—the Church and state—do
not want peace on earth or good will
toward men. Trust magnates and
Methodist bishops agree alike on this

slanted craniums who follow these

BAPTIST   FISH.
"Down in the south," remarked a
man at one ot the clnbe, "there exists
more of a religious atmosphere than
there is here in the north. So much
of the stories they tell have a sectarian flavor to them. One that I heard
while In Charleston was entirely new
to me, and it appeared to be so in the'
circle of gentlemen where I heard 'A.
It ran this way: A dignified old
gentleman stood on one ot the city
wharves watching an old darkey who
was fishing. No word passed between them until the darkey landed
a good-sized l ish. This was unbooked
and there was a look of disgust on
the face of the fisherman as he threw
the fish back into the water.
"Why did you throw that fish back
into the water instead of keeping
him, uncle?" queried the onlooker.
"Ho no good, massa."
"What kind ot a fish was it?"
"We calls'em Baptist fish, Bah."
"And why Baptist fish, uncle?"
"Ah couldn't say to' sure, massa,
but I spects It's because dey spiles
soon as you gets 'em outen the water."

Petrified Flah.
One ot the wonders of the world is
tu be found in Colorado, where certain mineral beds ot the nature of
slaty coal occur. These beds, containing millions upon millions of pet-
rifled fish, cover hundreds of square
miles in the north-western part of the
State. They extend a distance ot 100
miles in the direction of Green River,
and "shelve out" for 100 miles more
toward the interior ot the State. In
some places, says Science Sittings,
these beds—almost a solid mass of
perfectly fossilized fish—are from 150
to 200 feet in thickness. A point of
great interest is the fact that they lie
about 8,000 feet above sea level; to
whieh extent the land is proved to
have risen.
The sight of a pleasure in which
we can not or else will not share
moves us to a particular impatience.
It may be because we are envious, or
because we are sad, or because we
dislike noise and romping, being so
refined, or because, being so philosophic, we have an overweighlng
sense ot life's gravity; ut least, aa we
go on In years, we are all tempted to
trown upon our neighbor's pleasure.
People aro nowadays so fond ot resisting temptations; hero Is one to be
resisted. They aro fond of self-denial; hero is a propensity that cannot
be too peremptorily denied. There
Is an Idea abroad among moral people that they should make their
neighbors good. One parson I have
to make good—myself. Bat my duty
to my neighbor is much moro nearly
expressed by saying that I- hare to
make him happy, if I may.—Robert
Louis Stevenson.

NCW   DKJsVKB   MEMORIAL  SERVICE
Hew Dsjnrer Ledge.
Never in the history of New Denver
has an event been so universally participated in and heartily endorsed aa
Ihe memorial service held in Bosun hall
lait Saturday afternoon. Every citizen
ami every child in town took advantage
of the opportunity to express their love
and esteem for the most womanly
queen and queenly woman that ever
lived--Victoria tbefGood.
It in doubtful if there hae ever been a
more impressive service held in a mining camp tbe world over than that of
Saturday.   All classes, all shades, all
sizes, all characters joined heartily in
the service, and it seemed that upon
this occasion, at leaat, all felt that they
could lay aside any social or intellectual
differences that may exist and, with one
heart and voice.do honor to the memory
of the Queen that has been the Mother
ot England all these years.
The hall was tastefully draped in
black, tbe stage drapings being particularly well hung. Two large pictures
of the Queen were displayed, heavily
draped, black being artistically interwoven with ribbon of a royal purple
The Stars and Stripes drooped side by
tide with the Union Jack. There was
■eating capacity for 850 and every
available chair and bench was occupied
u wall aa the stairway leading to the
gallery. In the neighborhood of 400
people were in the building, and a moro
earnest, loyal crowd was never gathered
together.
About 1:80 o'clock the march was begun (rom Union Hall, led by the band
One hundred men were in line,composed
of tlie fraternal societies and members
of the Miners' Union. The dead march
by the band was particularly well rendered. With the first sad strains the
impressiveness of the occasion seemed
to touch lhe heart of the whole people,
ami the town assumed a stillness that
»aa like the stillness of death. With
the entrance of the mourners in line the
hall was quickly filled, a few seats being
reserved for ladies and their escorts
that wore soon to arrive from Silverton.
On the arrival of the s.s. Slocan tho
audience was increased by about 76
Irom Silverton.
Programs appropriate for the occasion
"«re distributed, with the hymns that
were to be sung printed thereon, thus
making it convenient for everyone to
loin in the service.
The addresses by Revs. Alexander
and Roberts were deeply effective, that
of the. latter being unusually interesting
in that ho was fortunate enough to be
able to recite incidents of his youth
when he waH at the old home, and frequently saw the good Queen as she
drove by in her carriage, incidents that
"bowed tho love of the youth of Eng-
■and for the Mother of their land.
THE   ROR8KNHOE,
lhe, Horseshoe group of five claims
Is situated on the west side of Arrow
lake, about three miles bolow Nakusp.
Ibe owners, Rose, McPhoe and Mur-
thison, have been working tho property
'or several months. Tho ground is soft
and requires little powder. Tho lead is
very wide, a tunnel driven 60 feet has
not yet reached the hanging wall.
Slight values in gold have been obtained.
The ore Is similar to that found in the
Republic camp. The Horseshoe camp
is an Ideal spot for a mine. Plenty of
timber, and on the lake shore

Australia requires mine superintend

for returning to a missed-flre shot within
three hours' time.
To lubricate the cylinder of the gas
engine try finely pulverized graphite
fed into the cylinder through the suction

Chemically pure lead is not in sum

Fine wire cloth will help in making a
lasting steamtight joint with putty or
rubber. It helps to hold the material
together, preventing its being blown
out.
With a well proportioned charge of
gas and air, and a well ventilated mine,
tho fumes from the exhaust of a gas
engine should not constitute a serious
detriment to its use.
To harden a steel tool for a special
purpose, heat it to a cherry red, drive
tbe point into a cake of lead, and leave
it there until it ia cold, lt will prove to

Traction engines have hauled 30 tons
ore daily, a distance of 80 miles, over a
road with long 10 per cent grades, from
Blsbee, Arizona, at an estimated cost
for labor, fuel and oil of 27 cents per
ton.
In one form of use of the cyanide pro
cess the ore is treated in revolving bar
rels instead of in a vat, the company
claiming that the percentage of extrac
tion is greater and the time required
less.
At tbe Green Mountain mine, one of
the Anaconda, Montana, copper proper
ties, copper has been found by the diamond drill at a depth of 2200 feet. The
High Ore shaft is to have a depth of
4000 feet.
Manganese bronse in the form of
sheet*, for mining screens, is sometimes
used, acid mine waters having no action
on it. For rolling into sheets a mixture
containing more copper and less man
ganese is bow employed.
It is 42 years since George Jackson
made the first recorded discovery of
gold in Colorado, at Jackson's bar, now
Idaho Springs. It Is 58 years since J.
W. Marshall made the historical dis
covery of gold at Coloma, California.
At Cripple Creek, Colorado, the miner
may go up to his work from the town
on an electric car, go down in the mine
by an electric hoist, operated by electric
signals, the shaft being kept dry by an
electric pump, do his work by an electric
light, talk to the town and thence to
the world by an electric telephone, ran
a drill electrically operated, and fire his
shots by an electric blast.
In any given conditions minerals
tend to assume the forms most stable
under those conditions. Since the conditions prevailing during vein formation are very different (rom those prevailing afterwards, it may be inferred
that tbe products of the first process
might easily be changed. Such is, Indeed, the case, as one finds many altered
rocks which have evidently undergone
more than one change. Especially near
the surface, under the influence of oxidizing waters, the minerals formed in
the rocks along veins are apt to suffer
great changes. Examples are frequent,
showing that tbe minerals which filled
the open spaces along a vain have been
completely dissolved and partly or
wholly replaced by others. This is par
ticularly true of fillings of calcite or
baryte. Instances are known in which
large masses of these minerals have
been completely dissolved and replaced
by quartz, as in the case of those of tbe
De Lamar mine, Owyhee county, Idaho.
A plant to work the Hoepfner wet
process for the extraction of copper at
Papenburg, Germany, has a daily capacity of a metric ton of refined copper.
The ore is first crushed in ball mills
and leached with cupric chloride solutions. The solution dissolves copper,
lead, nickel and silver, tbo cupric salt
being reduces! to the cuprous state.
After purification and being freed from
silver, tho solution is allowed to flow to
a compartment with carbon anodes and
copper cathodes. Chlorine is liberated
at the anodes, regenerating the cupric
solution, which is returned to a fresh
charge of oro. It is claimed that 91 per
cent, of the contained copper was obtained after four hours' treatment of
Rio Tinto ore containing 8.87 per cent,
copper, and only 3 per cent, ot the iron
content dissolved. By longer contact
98 5 per cent, of the copper was extracted, with only 4 por cent, of the iron
taken up. It is claimed, moreover, that
1 H P. in 24 hourB will produce 54 kilograms of copper, as against 15 kilograms
by the sulphate process.

Reports from the United States are
to the effect tbat tbe country is beinp*
viBlted by an epidemic oi grip, m0f«
severe than anything that has been
felt since tbe visit of the disease in
1890 and 1891. The peculiarity of
the disease this year is that though
ft w cases are fatal, the number to
enormous- and that pneumonia follows in a great number of cases as a
seqnel to the attack ot grip.
If Bymptoms ot the grip are felt,
two courses are recommended by the
best authorities. The first is to go to
bed; the second is to send for a doctor
The quinine and whiskey prescription, which was at one time so popular, is said to be an invention that
kills more than it cures. The Super
intendent ot the Dakota Board of
Health reports that during a severe
epidemic of grip in that territory, the
quinine and whiskey method of treat
ment was almost universally followed,
In every saloon the barkeeper kept a
jar ot quinine standing on the bar bo
that every man who feared an attack
of grip could mix a little quinine with
his whiskey. Out of 208 sudden
deaths an investigation revealed tbat
50 per cent, were of men who had
taken from one to four doses of whiskey and quinine within a few hours
before they died.
A   FINE   LIKE.
From statistics at band i* appears the
Cunard Line landed in America last
year 82,970 steerage passengers. This
Line is now in a better position than
ever to take care of its constantly increasing steerage passenger traffic.
With their already grand fleet of floating palaces, i.e., Campania, Lucania,
Umbria, Etruria, Sorvia, Aurania, etc.,
and the late additions, vie., tbe magnificent new twin-screw steamers,
Saxonia and Ivernia, 600 feet long,
18,950 tons, having special new features
for steerage passengers, in fact, Twen
tieth Century Steerage Accomodation,
and the large twin-screw steamer,
Ultonia, 513 feet long, 9,000 tons, (the
latter carrying steerage passengers
only), the Cunard Line will be able to
maintain a service of two steamers each
week, with fortnightly extra sailings
during the rush season, thereby giving
ample room for all passengers at all
seasons, giving them prompt transportation with no delays. These facts
speak for themselves, and our readers
will do well to consider them when
sending for their friends during the
present year. "A word to the wise is
sufficient."

Total tone    1&1 8,040
Last week's shipments were 150 tons
heavier than any week of the month,
reaching 751 tons, and bringing the
total for the month up to 8,040. The
increase was largely due to the fact
that tbe Payne has resumed its regular
shipments, having contracted with the
Trail smeltor to take its entire output.
It is very encouraging to see the oro
shipments so large at this season of tbo
year. That they will bo largely in
creased as the season advances and the
big properties, such as tho Idaho,
Slocan Star, Enterprise and Emily
Edith resume regular shipments,
is certain. To this list the early summer months will seo many others added,
and there is every reason to believe
that tho list of Slocan shipping mines
will not only be increased, but the output from tho old properties will bo much
srreator than in previous vears, and tbat
the total output for the season will
reach tho fifty thousand ton mark.
In this connection it is interesting to
know that of tho 29 British Columbia
mines that have paid dividends all but
seven are Slocan properties. And it is
of further interest to note that of all tho
.Slocan mines that have paid dividends
few If any will be ofl the shipping list
this year. Of the $6,893,000 paid to
date, nearly $4,000,000 has been paid by
mines In the Slocan proper. There are
a tew properties owned by close corporations from whom the profits of their
mines cannot be learned, but otherwise
the following Is almost a complete list
of the dividends paid by mines of this
province since mining commenced:

BUYING    A   BABY   CARRIAGE.
"I'm sorry," said the salesman to the
youthful married pair,
"That all our baby carriages are sold
Except that single sample in the window
over there,
Which almost  is too lovely to be
rolled."
They bought the pretty carriage, and
they tucked the baby in;
The husband proudly pushed it on
the street,
And everyone who met them hai to
turn around and grin,
Although tbe baby certainly was sweet.
"Oh, what can be the matter?" said the
blushing better half,
"You'd better give the carriage,John,
tome.
And walk ahead to notice why the people at us laugh."
The husband did, but nothing could
he see.
"Then, darling, you may wheel it while
I take myself a glance—
For men in such emergencies are
blind."
And with a mother's dignity she trotted
in advance
And nervously cast furtive looks behind.
Her face, as red as roses, her discovery
betrayed;
Tbe salesman's head she wanted there
to break,
For on tbe baby carriage he had.left a
sign displayed
That boldly read:   "None batter!   Our

Hanging lu his room la tbe cabin of eat
American bark loading for South Africa,
at a South street wharf, waa a picture of
the captain's home ashore, In a Long Island town, not far from the elty. Hut
easy of access a* this home ia, the captain
spends very little time In lt, tor bis wife
calls with htm, and, even tn this port, they
Uv* mostly aboard the ship. At sea and
In foreign porta, when they speak of home,
they mean, of course, tbelr home on Long
Inland, but prnctioally they make tbel*
home tn the cabin of tbe bark, and a comfortable home too.
Upon the walls of the main room of thi*
eabln, whloh li a room of spacious dimension*, there are two pictures of th*
bark Itself. These are distinctly nautical,
but, aside from tbem, tbe furnishing ol
the room Is such as might be seen In any
room devoted to like purposes ashore. In
aa aloove on one side is a piano; upon thc
other tide ia a sofa. In the center of tha
room Is a table, upon whloh there arc
books and sewing end, here In port., where
tbe ship stands on an even keel, a vaae of
flowers. The room U lighted at night by
a lamp like a piano lamp, with a broad,
spreading shade, but whloh, Instead of being upheld by a standard with feet resting
on the floor, is here suspended from tha
s]»ck beams running across under the skylight overhead. There are here deep upholstered armchairs and other easy ohnvre,
•* there are rugs on the floor. It Is a

THE SLOCAN DRILL,
Sloean, R. C.
MJIDAY, FEBRUARY 8th, 1901.
KIslTsllUU.    UUOl'l'lNUS.
For the benefit of the Silvertonian,
we may say that there is uo element
tn Slocan ojipostn? incorporation: it
ia the outside owners. Our town is as
are many others in the province, kept
down by the grasping power of speculators.
Following closely upon the action
-of certain of the big mining companies in Butte, in adopting an eight
hour law, comes that of the legislature of the state of Montana, which
lias placed tho law upon its statute
books. Mining is a dangerous and
laborious vocation, and the men engaged in It are deserving of every
attontion designed to ameliorate their
condition.	
The Slocan is coming in for much
favorable attention and comment of
late through the wide circulation
-given a table of statistics showing the
•dividend paying mines of British
Co'umbia. Of 28 protit-makers, no
■less than 21 are located in the Slocan
-country. The total dividends paid
amounted to $0,392,000, ot which $3,-
075,000 is placed to the credit of the
•nines in the great silver camp. No
better testimony could be forthcoming as to the resources of our district,
and the investing public must be.
favorably impressed with the excellent returns made upon the money
.invested. Money talks and these
•dividends will appeal strongly to all
capitalists. To the 21 lucky mines
•many others are being constantly
added as the country opens up. In
this section,the Enterprise, Arlington
and Bondholder may be attached to
tlie list aa dividend payers, with the
practical certa'iity of a dozen others
in thc next year or two.
On the 21st inst. the provincial legislature will meet in Victoria and n
vast amount of progressive legislation
will come before it. Our local member, R. Ft Green, will be here on the
18th, to flgcertain the views and
needs of this end of the constituency,
and every effort should be made to
bring the various wants to his attention. The citizens should get together
and draft out their requirements and
pressure brought to bear to see that
they are met. Among some of the
needs are the betterment of the trail
to the Two Friends and the camp to
thc head of Springer creek; the -trail
over Ten Mile summit and up that
creek wants looking after, as also up
-the south fork of Ten Mile and Lemon
creeks; attentiou should be paid to
thc trail to Cedar creek,and an effoit
W made to get a wagon road to Lemon
creek. Loc. lly there is much wanted: An appropriation for repairing
tho streets and extending: the sidewalks; the clearing and fencing of
•the school grounds; the grading of
the street past tho school and jail,and
•the fencing in of thatproperty. These
are a few of the many needs of this
growing 8 ctlon and they should be
looked after.
