Three men are working on the
French group, about six miles from
Poplar. The shaft is down 40 feet. At
this depth a tunnel has been run in to
tap the shaft and improve the air. The
ore is copper-gold.
The tunnel on the Mother Lode is
in 84 feet. Tracks are being laid to
ihe dump, and an ore car was sent up
to the mine this week. The tunnel
will be run 200 feet before sloping is
commenced. This will give a depth
ol about 200 feet on the lead.

Last week there were  "doings" in
this  burg.    It  was one of the occasions on which  every  prospector drops
down from  the hills  to spend a  few
days.    There does  not appear   to be
any prearranged time for these gatherings.    It   is just  a "swarming" time.
On Monday, without any apparent reason for it, the Rapid creek contingent
quit work and  came  to town.    Tuesday Poplar creek commenced to move,
the disturbance extending as far up as
the Spyglass, and on Wednesday Tenderfoot, Cascade and   Meadow creeks
began to move,  and  on Thursday the
town was pretty well  filled  with prospectors.      Before   Sunday   there   will
probably not be a single prospector in
in town.    It is strange thai men work-

ing over a district of twenty or thirty
miles in extent, without any prear-
ranged plan, will quit work and gather
at a common center within a few hours
of each other. This frequently occurs
in a mining camp.
J. Simpson, mining recorder at Poplar, paid an official visit to Nelson this
week.
Mr. Brock of the geological survey
visited the Swede group this week.
-a^ Mrs. T. H.   Armstrong  returned  to
Rossland Wednesday.
Geo. Matthews, foreman at the
Spyglass, was in Poplar Tuesday.
Oscar Nelson left Tuesday to work
on the Klondike group, Tenderfoot
creek.
Ed. Almstrom of the Poplar hotel
left Wednesday on a business trip to
Rossland.
J. A. Magee of the Spyglass will
leave for Seattle in a few days on a
business trip.
Colonel Stone, John L. Retallack and
others are hunting big game near Howser lake.
Owing to increasing business, Geo.
H. Chataway intends to add to the
number of animals in his pack train.
Business is good in Poplar in all
lines except in the hotel, and in some
of them it could be a great  deal worse.
The business men of Nelson are
doing very little to help Poplar get its
feet over the dashboard  of prosperity.
Randall McLachlan and wife have
moved from Lardo to Dalhousie, Que.,
where they will engage in the mercantile business.
The Dominion Express Co. should
keep more money in its Poplar safe.
The agent occasionally has orders presented that he cannot cash.
Bob Walmsley, who has been doing
the "punch" act on the Lardo branch
for the past two months, went to Rossland on Wednesday, where he will take
his old run.
Since the Proctor was |put into commission on Trout lake much better
time is being made. The run between
Gerrard and Trout Lake is now made
in about an houi and a half.
Harry Graves again handles the
punch on the Poplar express. After
tv/o months spent at his old home in
New Brunswick he returned with his
wife and family to Gerrard on Wednesday.
S. F. McKay was in Nelson this
week hunting a big contract for lumber.
He has an order for 700,000 feet from
Trail. This, with his C. P. R. contract for bridge timbers, will keep the
Poplar mill humming all winter.
Charley Hanson has a hawk and a
bear in his boozeological garden. The
hawk always shows tight when he gets
close to the bear, but up to date the
bear has treated the winged Fitzsim-
mons with silent contempt.
The gamblers of Ferguson passed
through Poplar this week on their way
to the green pastures of the coast The
morality of" Ferguson has risen so high
lately that the old custom of squinting
at hole cards has become obsolete.
The tunnel on the International
group at Bosworth is in 50 feet. This
will tap the lead at a depth of about
75 feet.The lead is from 3 to 4 feet,
wide, carrying silver-gold values of
from $36 to $80 to the ton. The group
comprises the International, Fairview,
Riverside, Spokane and  Blue  Grouse.     ^
Exclusiveness. r
Exclusiveness is a brand of nothing,
used by nobody who is anybody, to protect somebody from the dangers of
nothing. You'll find it everywhere,
more in Boston than in New York,
more in New York than in the turnip
patch. Exclusives are people who
don't know enough to go at large.
Exclusive society is a rickety, lopsided, leaky association of idiots, fools,
tailors' dummies and hangers-on, so
substantial-less that you have to feed a
couple of dozen of them into a hopper
to grind out a dwarf.

The highest gold output ot Cripple
Creek district was in the year 1900,
when it reached $18,073,539.
The celebrated Minnie Moore mine
at Hailey, Idaho, has Tlecbrd of
having produced over $8,000,000. It
was discovered in 1880 by a man who
was hunting strayed horses and happened across the croppings by accident. 	
Siberia's yearly gold production
averages about 1,100,000 ounces, and
it is unlikely that the present war
will have any lessening effect. Scien
tiric methods and modern American
machinery are greatly increasing
the Siberian gold output.
Pot-holes are the result ol erosion
caused by waters flowing in rapids
over a bed of hard r^ck The waters

Cripple Creek takes its name from
; he creek that runs through the city.
It was so named by a cowboy who
was thrown from his horse and crippled when he was criming the
stream. Ever after he referred to
the creek as "cripple" creek, and the
town was finally given the title.

the sub-treasury in Wall street, New

Steel has a tendency to assume the
crystalline state under vibration
sooner than wrought iron, but nut as
soon as ca*»t iron. The crystalizaturn
ot the carbide ot iron present in steel
and cast iron seems intimately con

crystalization. Cast iron has more
of this than steel.
For several years the China and
Japan Telephone company of Shanghai, China, has been searching for
tbe cause of perforations of its lead-
covered cables, it being assumed
that small holes discovered in the
sheathing from time to time were the
result of small bullets. Later it was
discovered that the holes were
caused by a species ot wasp which
lays its egg in bamboo during the
months of July and August, safe
from natural enemies. These insects
bite through the lead sheathing, tre
qnently making several attempts before making a complete perforation.

In the history of miningthere have
been more dreams of future wealth
than perhaps in any other field of
business venture, or adventure, if
you choose. Every old time prospector had his dream of the future.
Sometimes he would be visited in the

Had Never Seen Mntches.
Asher Caruth of Louisville used to
tell a story about tbe early portion ol
the last century, when great droves
of hogs u ere driven from Tennessee
and Kentucky to the Gait or sold in
the Gulf States.   One night a boss
drover halted at a farm house and
made arrangements tor feeding his
bogs and helpers,  and also for  his
own accommodation.   The hogs were
fed, the drovers who were on foot all
day had their suppers and went to
bed.   The boss drover had  his supper and sat on the front porch with
the farmer.   He drew out his pipe,
filled it, and struck a lucifer match
on his boot.
He had been in his buggy all day
and didn't need sleep so much as the
fellows who had   "hoofed it."   The
farmer arose,  looked at him as he
lighted his pipe, and asked him if he
could strike fire out of his foot again.
The old fellow had   never seen   a
match nor ever heard of one.   When
the boss drover struck another match
the old farmer said:   "You an' you
unsgicout right quick.   Wake'em
al I up an' git out.   You uns is the
devil.   I seed ye make the fire come
out of your foot, an' I smells the sulphur.    You uns cain't scay here."
as were exhibited last year and in
the list he has not counted any of the
stock from the Spokane breeders,
which will add considerably to this
number. Besides these there will
undoubtedly be other stock taken to
j Spokane which has not been ex-
' hibited there before and which has
not been reported.
Somz Suggestions.
The persistent, careful, studious
advertiser does not know the meaning of failure.
Real advertising gives to business
real life.
Many goods are bought of the mail
order houses because the buyer did
not know that a similar article could
be  bought, of the home  merchant.
The fault of the   ignorauce of  the
buyer rests entirely with the man
who failed to inform him that he had
that which he desired.    No doubt in
many cases he could s;»ve tie cus
tomer money if the article had been
bought at home.   But how is the customer to know this if the merchant
does not advertise intelligently ?
Cast your bread upon the waters,
and you will realize how many peo

Kilkenny Oats.
During the rebellion which occurred in Ireland in 1798, Kilkenny was
garrisoned by   a   troop  of  Hessian
soldiers who amused themselves in
barracks by tying two cats|cogetherby
their tails and throwing them across
a clothesline to fight.   The officer,
hearing of the cruel   practice,  resolved to stop it.   As he entered tiie
room one of the troopers, seizing a
sword   cut the tails in two as the
animals hung across the line.   The
two cats escaped, minus their tails,
through the open window, and when
the officer inquired the meaning of
the two bleeding tails being left in
the room, be was cooly told that two
cats had  been, fighting and had devoured each other all but the tails.
The Balloon Plant.
One ot the curious devices of nature
for scattering seeds is seen in the
balloon plan- ot California. The iruit
is yellow and is a little larger than
an egg. It has the appearance of
an empty bag, but it contains a wat-
tery substance, which evaporates or
dries up when the fruit matures, a
fort of gas taking its place. This ga3
is lighter than air, and the fruit
flips back and forth in tbe wind until
it finally breaks loose from its slender
stem, rises into the air to a height of
from 75 to 100 feet, and sails away to
fall m some distant spot and thus extend the growth of its kind.
Superintendent John L. Smith of
the Interstate fair stock department
says there is every prospect of as
good an exhibition of stock this year
as there ever has been in the past.
In fact it is probable ^there will be
more cattle, more horses, and better
grades of. both this year than there
were last year, and every one who
attended tbe fair last year will remember that the stock department
Was very fine.   Already Mr. Smith
has  received definite assurances of
