Onco again it is the privilege of The
Drill to give a summary of the development and progress taking place in
the dry ore belt for a twelve months'
period, and it takes  pleasure in bearing testimony to the fact that the situation ln tho camp is much healthier
th.in it was at the close of 1903. While
in the town things  have  gone from
bud to worse, population seriously decreased and half  the business blocks
■become emptied, yet  on   the several
creeks constituting   the Slocau City
division there has been a (parked improvement   in   the  mining industry.
More properties have appeared in the
shipping list, the   amount of  ore exported has been  larger, and there are
more men employed now than in 1908.
For 1901 there is an  increase of approximately 1000 tons in the output,
which is about 80 per cent  over last
year.    New shippers have come to the
nont  and  the   entanglements  surrounding  others    straightened   out.
Encouragement has be?n given to the
industry for 1905, and the rate of progress will be kept up. There promises
to lie much activity ou all the creeks,
and it is   certain   the   tonnage of ore
sent out   wil!   largely exceed that of
1904. The higher price maintained by
silver is having a stimulating effect
and will cause a number of likely properties to be exploited.   The leasing
system is largely tn vogue in the camp
and is   meeting   with satisfactory results.
Taken by creeks the following summary will give an idea of what has
beeu accomplished:
Teu Mil* C'rea-k.
The Enterprise is easily the first
property of importance. It has been
kept in steady operation by W. Koch,
under len'se, and has shipped 6S0 tous
of ore during the year. For a time a
crow of llUoilt ;iU men was employed,
but of late it has dwindled to eight.
The larger ore bodies have beeu worked out and development is now pro
feeding to open up new Ixidies. A
little ore is coming from the upper
levels. When a new chute is tapped
the force will be increased.
Adjoining the Enterprise to the
west. Isaacson Bros, and John Kill*
uian have had the Neepawa under
lease anil have operated with success.
Upwards of 70 tons of ore has been
shipped, with another car ready to go
out. New ore bodies have lieen found
and the property la looking well.
Above the Neepawa C 13. Taylor
and partners held a lease on the Edi-
s in. They built a good camp and
•worked two or three months, but quit
after shipping lfi tons of ore.
Adjoining   the   Enterprise   to the
south is the   Mabou, OU  which H. 1.
Kirlcwtvxi did some work.   He drifted
on the Enterprise vein and opened up
2;' a promising body of on
Binish Bros, spent sometime on the
Black Fel and shipped two tons if
ore.    It is a likely claim.
W. Harvey worked the Sapphire a
short time under lease aud shipped
two tons.
Numerous claims on the creek received their annual assessment during
the year aud a number of new locations were made.
I.suina Creek.
New life has been enthused on this
creek during the latter part of the
year, and next season will see much
advancement. The government has
repaired the trail and put in new
bridges, making communication easy.
The Kilo was understood to lie sold,
but the owners broke off negotiations
and proceeded to develop it themselves. They shipped a carload of ore
that gave $64 in gold per ton, and
they have another carload ready to go
out. It is expected a stamp mill will
go in thore ne> t spring.
The Chapleau has had a varied experience under lessees this year and
got badly tangled up. However, new
men have now got hold of it and they
are doing very well. Damages from
forest fires have been repaired and
everthiug put into goal shape at mill
and mine. Alxiut 28 men are employ
ed and more are to go ou. The lessees
expect to make big money, for quite a
lot of ore has peen exposed. Three
tons of concentrates were shipped out
by the former lessees and a couple of
cars are now ready to go out, of ore
and concentrates.
Profitable work was doue ou the
Duplex and Alberta, near by, the latter under lease, and both are looking
fine. The Alberta shipped 15 tous of
ore.
(Jr. Bulko made a two ton shipment
from the Blandtield, and is engaged
on another consignment.
At the head of the creek the Nansen, Emmett and Lady Franklin are
all working, aud each will ship. They
have encouraging showings of ore. of
high grade and easy to handle. The
Emmett is under lease.
The stamp mill on the Golden
Wedge has been dismantled and is being taken to Ymir.
Several gold properties on the creek
will be exploited next year.
Hpiliiser Craiok.
It is on this creek that the principal
life   has  been  duriug  the vear, with
trail built. A magnificent body of ore
was proven up and eight tous shipped.
Next year it is expected a company
will handle the property.
Adjoining the Club W.Cotterill and
partners are making a mine out of the
Northern Light. They have opened
their ledge at depth und will shortly
make a shipment.
After doing much work on the Port
Hope and shipping 17 tons of ore, the
lessees relinquished their holding. It
is a promising prospect.
The Cripple Stick has had two or
three sets of people working on it
during the year and shipped 12 tons
of ore.
The Tamarac has lately lieen leased
and four or five men are employed.
Harris; & Harrison opened up a
chute of high grade ore on the Argentite and last spring shipped five tons
of ore.
The Calumet & Hecla, the ,Tosie,the
Dayton, the Triune, nnd a number yf
othor claims have all been under development during the year. In the
spring there promises to be quite a
move on Springer creek, with much
ore going out. There will be some
outside capital coming in and good
results will folio v. Mining has got
down to a solid basis.
SI.OCAN DIVIDE* os.
The Slocan presents a healthy record for dividends, the total.includiug
those paid this yoar, amounting to
$4,763,297.   Thev areas follows:-—

At the head of Twelve Mile is the

Bros,   and   T. Waring.    They   have
done thousands  of dollars   worth  of
work on the property, with mora or
loss success. This yeur they completed a 110 foot crosscut, with nide drifts
and a raise, and  quit  work   when an
option to purchase was given.   How
ever, the upl ion was not taken up.
The Myrtle is a huge proposition and

splendid promises for next season.
Nothing was done on the Arlington
and Specul:itor,but it is confidently expected both properties will be opened
up in the spring and a mill built. The
Hampton did a little development, re-
suiting in the ledge liem;,' found at
depth and with rich ore.
Early in the season the Pioneer
Miuing Co. started development on
the Bank of England, and later ou
acquired the outstanding interests in
the Two Friends, and part of the
Black Prince group, all now being
amalgamated under one management.
New buildings have been erected and
a vast amount of development done.
\V. Koch has the contract to haul a
|arge tonnage of ore, part of it having
commenced coming down. Upwards
of 20 men are employed and will lie
continued on during next season. In
the year T>7 tons of ore was shipped
from the Black Prince, partly by thu
former lessees.
But it is to the Ottawa that credit
must be given for the general life and
activity in the camp. It has shipped
fully 1800 tons of ore and has given
employment to over 30 men. New
buildings have been put up, new road
constructed, and   hundreds of feet  of
drifting and raising accomplished, a
new level has lieen run and liolh veins
cut and are being drifted on.   These
will eventually yield a large tonnage
of ore. The ore is phenomenally lii^h
grade, while bodies of almost pure
metal are frequently  met with.   To
date the Ottawa has paid for its pur
chase and development and given a
handsome  profit  besides, while  the
mine is easily worth quarter of a million dollars.    Early next summer the
management will instal a power
scheme on Springer oreek, tfi-'inK the
power for operating a large hoist and
machine drills. The Ottawa is a conspicuous success   from   careful   and
competent management.
AImivh the Ottawa is the Mayeta
group of 15 claims, which are beiug
crown grantedf. The property was
purchased during the year by tlie Ottawa people and is being actively de
veloped by half a down men. rliey

shipments from the local division during the year. Consignments of ore
nre stringing down from a number of
properties and all may be lifted by
tomorrow night, swelling the grand
total to aliout 2300 tons. The heavy
fall of snow is goiug to help the
freighters iu great shape and ore will
come down much more freely. For
the week 44 tons of ore was shipped,
beiug from the Ottawa. The total to

"He is furious witli you," said the

The girl with the retrousse nose ouly
smiled as she turued to the mirror and
caught up a stray lock of hair with a
gilt hairpin.
"He said," went on the girl with the

"Did he?" gigfled the girl with the

that you never read anything but paper covered novels and didn't kuow an

pins out of her mouth aud serenely
pulling in the lacings of her girdle, "he
feels terribly cut up, poor boy, since I

has been all off. l'ou can't blame him
for saying some spiteful things, aud
everybody knows tliey aren't true."
"Of course," agreed the girl with the
red pompadour, "and that is what I
told Edwin. There isn't a single word
of truth in what he hus said, even that
you wear No. 7 boots aud have your
frocks cut long to hide them and"—
"Did he say that?" gasped the girl
with the retrousse nose, dropping the
powder puff in the midst of powdering
her nose and turning wrathfully upou
her companion.
"Why, yes," replied the girl with the
red pompadour hastily. "But you surely don't blame him. You kuow you did
treat him rather shabbily, Madeline,

"I said," cried the irate girl with the
retrousse nose, bringing the hairbrush
emphatically dowe upon the corner of

him or at least could forgive him for

Lord Huberts at Puardeburg.
Of interest to Canadians is Lord
Roberts' recent visit to the South
African battle-fields, says a recent
despatch, Lord Roberts re-fought tho
battle of Paardeberg, but his advance
upon Cronje's laager was made in a
motor-car insteud of with threo divisions of infantry.
The Coininaiider-in-Chii'f was keenly
interested in the famous battleground, although greutly surprised
at its altered appearunce. There was
even some trouble ut first, in locating several well-remembered incidents. Herds of springbok have invaded the paardeberg drift, and its
bottle  scars are  well  hidden.
Lord Roberts found, after some
difficulty, the site of his headquarters on that eventful February morning when General Cronje surrendered
himself after stubborn resistance. lie
related the incidents of the surrender
to the members of his party. Lord
Roberts also traced the ndvance mado
by General Smith-Dorrien's division
on February 26th, and the subsequent night attack in which the Canadians lost heavily.
Half buried in the veldt Lord Roberts discovered a number of rusty
meat tins, souvenirs of the "alarm
signals" devised by the Boers. Theso
tins had been strung on wire some
distance in front of the trenches, and
the enemy were thus warned of
night attacks.
Many other relics of thc battle were
discovered—fragments of shells, human bones, and cartridges; while in
one of the trenches a Boer boy unearthed and proudly brought to Lord
Roberts a rust-covered bayonet.
Lord Roberts spent two hours on
the battlefield, and eventually walked  around  the  inner trenches.
His visit created great curiosity
among the Boers. Some of Cronje's
old men who had fought the British
at Paardeberg followed the party at
a respectful distance.
On the journey to and from Kim-
berley thero were many expressions
of good-will on the part of the residents. Several of the Boer farmers
displayed Union .Tacks, and invited
the Commander-in-Chief to visit
them.

Why Ha Failed.
He was an elder of a chapel in a
little Glamorganshire town. He was
also a tradesman, and he fell upon
evil days. His creditors pressed him,
and he was forced to file his petition
in bankruptcy.
His failure was the talk of the
town. He felt llis position acutely,
ond kept as much as possible within
doors.
Then the brethren decided to hold
a meeting, and the unworthy elder
was summoned to attend. The pastor spoke lirst. He urged his people
to be considerate and tender.
He was followed by a man who
made nn eloquent speech on honesty
in trade, and concluded by moving
that the elder be suspended from office for a period to give him time to
purge himself of his heinousness. A
seconder and supporter spoke to the
same effect.
The brethren looked severe, their
countenances wore set with the stern*
ness of a righteous wrath, a deep
silence pervaded the room.

Cottel's Cove, Nfld., Dec. 19.—(Special).—The days of miracles are past,
but the cure of Joseph Boone of this
place almost ranks with the sensational cures of the earlier ages.
Mr. Boone has been ailing for eight
years, seven of which he was unable
to work from the effects of Backache
and Kidney Complaint. He was all
aches and pains.
He was treated by several doctors,
and after seven months in the hospital was sent home as Incurable. It
was there that reading of cures ln the
newspapers led him to use Dodd's
Kidney Pills. It took twenty-one
boxes to cure him, but to-day he ls

A   LOOK  AT  OUR   PROGRESS.
We will soon be closing another
year, and again as we, the citizens of
Assiniboia, the farmers of the West,
balance our books for another s?ason
we can look around us and see and
feel prosperity; we know that we are
better oft" than we were a year ago,
and those of us who have been in the
West since its youth know that Its
growth and progress are substantial.
i he pioneers who came to the
wheat belt of Western Canada made
a choice of two propositions when
they decided to farm; to select the
highly advertised lands of the Da-
kotas and Minnesota, or come to the
less advertised territory of Manitoba
and Assiniboia. Were they wise in
their selection? Let us look at results.

acre of 12.07 bus. in N. Dakota and
10.04 bus. in S. Dakota, with an
average of all Western States of li.'
bushels. The Canadian Blue Uoak is
authority for the figures that co\e-
the same period of years (91-'01) in
the Canadian West the average yield
was   17.07   bushels.   These quotations

we look backward for a decade arid
realize that we f.re about 40 per cent
wealthier each year than our cousins
across the line. Even this year,
which has made so much dissatisfaction owing to the disparity in prices
caused by tne crop failure in the
United States with the rust bligfit,
our returns per acre are more than
if we were farming in I'ncle Sam's
land. Our average of 17^ bushels at
80 cents would be $14 per acre;
Northern States average of Vi. b'.-s.
at 90 cents would be $11.52 peracrf.
The amount is not very large, only
$250 on a 150-acre crop, but It is a
nice nest, egg, nnd though our price-.-
have to be governed by Brn.i8h markets, and the- scarcity of milling
wheat across the border makes a local market which can call flour at
$3.46 per hundred, while we buy our

We have our drawbacks in th's

PROPER WAY TO WALK.
A I'liyaUenl  Instructor   GItcs  Advice
on the- Subject.
The way to walk straight is not to
t.ilnk of the shoulders at all, says a
physical instructor. Hang your arms
loosely at your sides and hold yourself erect by moderate tension of the
back and abdominal muscles and the
muscles of the neck. Theu your shoulders will have to hang right.
Don't "throw out" your chest. The
chest that is inflated properly by deep
breathing is bound to be thrown out,
and thrown out not like that of a
stuffed figure, but naturally, because
it can't help it.
Don't walk with a stiff neck. Hold
your head erect the way an animal
does. Watch a deer. Its neck is always in motion, yet it is always held
beautifully. Your head poised on a
stiffly held neck is no good for either
balancing or looking around you. Poised confidently on strong but pliant
neck muscles, it becomes what a head
should be.
Many classes of men who do much
walking, such as Indians, guides and
trappers, walk with their bodies inclined forward a little bit. But the.v
don't round their shoulders or stoop
their beads. They incline forward
from the hips. This throws their
weight a little ahead and gives the leg
muscles the chance to exert ali their
power in the best directions. But the
upper body is never bent by these men.
It simply is held forward from the
hips at a very slight, barely perceptible, angle.
Even if correct poise in walking had
nothing to do with other forms of
athletics it would be invaluable in itself. The mnn who walks right ls going to keep his organs—heart, kidneys,
liver and lungs—in splendid form. But,
besides all this, it helps wonderfully
ln all outdoor sports.
PAPUAN CANNIBALS.
Ther Mint Harder and Taate Human
Dlood to Attaiu Manhood.
The cannibal instinct of the Papuan
of New Guinea Is not hard to explain.
In all the 31,'1,000 square miles of New
Guinea there is not a tribe which does
uot regard murder as a kulghtly accomplishment. Until a man hus taken
a humiiu life aud has sipped human
blood he is an object of ridicule. He is
not permitted to tattoo himself, and
with a skin thus unadorned he is shunned by Papuan society.
Immediately after killing some one,
however, the murderer must undergo
six days of "purification," which are
marked by various uncanny rites. He
tirst washes himself and his weapon
and seats himself upon a stage ln tbe
sight of the whol« town, but nevertheless unnoticed by rfll. During this time
he must eat nothing except roasted.bananas, the pulp of which he bites out
and the rest he throws away. On the
third day he bas so far purified himself that his friends entertain blm nt a
feast, and on the fourth day he decks
himself with all the ornaments of his
home and parades up and down the village. After being thoroughly admired
he walks down to a river, aud, standing with feet wide apart, he lets all the
boys who want to become great men
swim through his legs.. Ou the next
day at dawn he jumps from bed and
yells out of the window nt the top of
bis lungs. His shout is supposed to
scare away the ghost of his victim. On
the following day he rel urns to his
wife, who has spurned him up to this
time, and is once more installed as the
respected lord of his household.

printer for Manitoba. Tlie following
yisar Mr. Hooper was appoinied manager of the Winnipeg Telegram, and
Mr. McPherson succeeded him as
editor and manager. After the general elections of l'.ioo, Dr. Rutherford
was appointed chief veterinary inspector, and removed to Ottawa, and
Mr. McPherson purchased the Semi-
Weekly Liberal and conducted it till
the spring of 1903, when he purchased
the Daily and Weekly Graphic, and
merged the two concerns, conducting
tlie Daily (Iraphic and the Weekly
Manitoba Liberal. At the time of the
purchase he had as partner Mr. J. J.
McCullough, but last .lune he bought

McPherson Is largely interested in

Mr. McPherson is the Portage and
general correspondent of the Manitoba Free Press, and was one of the
few newspaper men who accompanied
the Duke of York on his shooting trip
to Lake Manitoba. Mr. McPherson Is
unmarried—a fact which more than

"KING   OF  THE   WHOLE   WORLD."
Pope  So  Dominates  King  Edward  in
Audience with Connaught.
A cable trom Rome says: The audience which the Duke of Conaught had
with the Pope was most cordial. The
Pontiff, who spoke in Italian, said he
was exceedingly gratified at the fiuke
it ''onnauglit's visit, and was most
pleased to see him, and added that it
was a pity he stopped such a short,
time in Home. The Pope also said he
hnd great esteem and veneration for
King Edward, "who is not only King
of England, but of the whole world,
OS the sun never sets on his dominions."
I'ope Pins said he knew Great
Britain thoroughly enjoyed libeity,
and well understood its meaning. The
missionaries coming to Home from
all parts of the British empire spoke
of the great degree of liberty enjoyed in the colonies. The duke was
received at the Vatican with greal
ceremony. The audience lasted ten
minutes. He returned directly tothe
quirinal from the Vatican.

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food stands high

peculiar to their sex.
When, on account of a run-down
condition of the system, the muscles
and nerves fall to control the action
of the feminine organism there is
bound to come much suffering
Headaches, pains ln the back and

I
Are you following the recipes?      *
Are yoa making bread, cakes, pies,
pastry, according to "Royal Household"
recipes?
If not, you cannot be sure of good
results.
"Why not?" you may reasonably ask.
"Are not my own recipes, which do
good baking, good enough?
" Why should I adopt new recipes ?"
Simply because " Royal Household"
is a new flour requiring new treatment.
Thla Flour le Different
frem Other Flours
It is different from other flour.
It is better than any flour yoa have
ever used.
It is the only flour that is equally good
for bread and pastry.
(  It makes the best of both.
'   Being different, it must be differently
mixed, kneeded and baked.
Much Quicker -
■nd Easier Baking
By following our recipes you can bake
easier, quicker, better than ever before.
All your own skill and knowledge of
good baking will be made doubly effective, and as a good housewife you will
quickly see why these recipes are so
good.
The words of a lady of St. John, N.B.,
whose letter we have just opened: "bread
made with it is lighter, flakier, better
—-imnfr,
than any I have ever seen" sre words
echoed by thousands of the best judges
of good cooking throughout Canada
who are writing us constantly to say
that they have found the flour just as
represented, and the recipes the best
they have ever tried.
Grocers tell us that the homes where
the flour and the recipes are both used
are the homes where the greatest success
is attained in baking.
We wish everyone who uses " Royal
Household " flour to have these recipes.
So send for them.
Send now, and we will not only send
you the recipes, but place you on our
literature list, and mail you whatever
we issue for users of flour.
No woman who values the reputation
of her baking—the success of her bread,
cakes, pies and pastry—the health of
her family, (depending as it does on
good cooking) will use anything except
" Roy.d Household " flour and in the
" Royal Household " way.
The best baking requires the best
flour and the best recipes.
We have both. ,
We send the recipes free.
Write for the recipes to-day.
Every really good grocer has the flour.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER SO, 1904.
KDITOHIAL   OKOI*PINU8.
Wiefhlpg you and yours a Happy
and Prosperous New Year.
Public notice has been given calling
the legislature to meet for the dispatch
of general business on February 9th.
James Smart, deputy minister of
the interior, at Ottawa, has resigned,
giving place to W. W. Cory, inspector
of government offices in the west.
The Canadian immigration department is making a big bid for settlersi
particularly in the United States. It
is expected the tide of immigration
will lie stronger than ever next year,
200,000 new settlers lieing figured on.
Hon. Messrs. Cotton and Tatlow, D.
K. Ker of Victoria, and J. Buntzen of
Vancouver have been appointed a
commission to inquire into the work
ings of the Assessment Act, nnd the
result of their labors will be laid liefore the legislature when it convenes.
England is withdrawing her fleets
and garrisons from Esquimalt and
Halifax, the deep friendship existing
with the United States being a sufficient guarantee of safety for Canada
and British interests. Tbe dominion
will provide men to garrison the forts,
and will also organize and man a
small patrol navy. England lays a
gentle hand on Canada, which is
practically independent, but yet is
bound by the strong cords of love and
kinship to the British Empire, to
whose interests she is devotedly loyal.
In another part of this issue will lie
found a summary of the development
Jn the camp during the year almost
ended. While necessarily brief, sufficient evidence is borne by the write-up
to prove that substantial progress has
been made and success generally met
with. One or two sales have been
made, several new shippers have appealed, aud the output of ore largely
increased. Operations on the whole
have been of an encouraging nature,
and the promise is given of even better
things for 190;*.. Mine owners view
with satisfaction the rise in silver, aR
it will benefit the whole dry ore belt.
The hopeless condition of the city
finances may lie judged from the fact
that the council consider themselves
too poor to permit of a public notice
beiug given possible voters to get
their names on the municipal list; to
permit tho returning officer to advertise the customary notice of nomination and election; or to issuo printed
proclamations of the same. Instead,
three proclamations will lie typewritten and posted up. Probably no other
incorporated town iu British Columbia
has ever had to resort to such conniving to save a dollar, and Tue Drill
will make affidavit no other local paper iu tho province has ever had such
a mit passed up to it. At the same
time, it is just possible the mit was a
premeditated experiment.
The kindly notico in tho Nelson
News of Tuesday will be greatly appreciated by the men publishing the
littlo weekly papers in the mining
camps of Kootenay, The hardest rub
on the struggling publisher is the utter lack of appreciation of his untiring
efforts to keep his camp to the front.
Added to that is tho steady opposition
meted out to his paper by persons
in the several towns, with the unjust
patronage by business people to eastern printing houses. There Is not a
publisher in uny of the mining can*ps
but what is expending far more money
in his town than he receives therefrom
and yet by mnny ho is regarded and
treated as little better than a criminal,
to be run out of the place at the first
opportunity.

The annual Hogan-'s Alloy banquet
\vhs held iu the Uuion hall on Monday
evening, and it proved one of the liest
of the series, the attendance being
large and enthusiastic. The dinner
was excellent and gotten up in great
style. Special pains had been taken
by the committee in decorating the
tables, which really presented a very
pretty sight. After the banquet came
the entertainment, the first item being
the reading of the minutes of last
year's blowout. Next in order was the
receiving and reading of telegrams
from the various rulers and notable
characters of the world, as well as ab
sent friends, these creating much merriment. Judge Hogaii, alias Tom
Armstrong, theu held court for the
trial of a number of prisoners arrested
by the Yellow Kid, otherwise George
Stoll, tho charges ranging from being
positively sober up to the selling of
tough beefsteaks. In each case the
prisoner was given tho limit, "Red"
Gordon being ordered laid on the table
as an example to his fellow culprits.
No end of fun was created by the
healing of the several charges. A
capital programme of songs, speeches,
recitations and instrumental music
followed. Officers elected for next
year were: President, D. B. O'Neail:
judge Hogan, Jas.Smith; clerk of the
court, C. E. Smitlieringale; committee
Ralph Gillette, Bert Almas and Al
Reeve. The affair wound up at 11 p.

no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
