Mulock's Quick Delivery.
Mail from Poplar to Goldhill, a distance of three miles by train, is taken
all the way to Kaslo, held there two
days and then sent back. This is fast
mail service with a vengeance. It can't
cost any more to drop the Goldhill
mail of on the down train than it does
to carry it to Kaslo, unless Mr. Galliher is trying to give the Lardeau the
worst possible mail service at the
greatest possible expense to the country. It takes three days to carry mail
matter three mille, and going like
blazes all the time. As a departmental
head Mulock is a wonder.
The Swede Group.
Prospect work has  been completed
on the Swede group and work resumed
on the lower tunnel,  which  is in   117
feet.     This   tunnel   gives  a   vertical
depth of a little over one hundred feet,
and will be continued  for another 100
feet, after which very little development
will be done  until  a  stamp-mill  is installed.    It is very little use reiterating
what   has   already   been   said  of the
Swede group.    On the surface the pay
ore  has been  proved over an area of
300 by 1000 ft and this by underground
workings to a depth of over 100 feet.
It is a huge quarry containing millions
of cubic feet of pay ore, the lowest assays from which was $6 and  running
from that amount up to over $100,000
to the ton.    That the Swede group is
not paying dividends must be attributed
to mismanagement.    These statements
are  not   made   with   the intention of
boosting the camp,  but  with the object of placing facts  before the shareholders of the Great  Northern  Mines,
Ltd., many of whome are subscribers
to this paper.    Within twelve months
of the installation  of a 20-stamp mill
the Swede group will have turned out
more   gold   than   the  amount of the
capital  stock of  the  Great  Northern
Mines, Ltd.    This is not  the opinion
of the editor alone, but of experienced
mining men who haved examined the
property.      Shareholders   should   examine the property and then act, if they
want to mine and pay dividends.
E. L. Morand is papering and otherwise improving the interior of the
Royal. He is going to stay with the
camp until gold can be picked up in
the streets.

It will require about eighteen months

dends and interest payments aggregating $150,000,000, which is a very
tidy sum to be distributed throughout
the commercial world.

in the open market reached a total
of $11,2(»7,540. compared with $11,-

of 19C3.
The counsel for the plaintiff had

are traced back from 1,500 to 2,300
years liefore Christ. These are of
Kgypthw origin. Transparent glass

about 750 years before the Christian
era. Glass was not used for windows
until about A. I). 300.
There is an enormous quantity of
timber used annually in the mines of
the United S'ates. In the copper

timber is forever sunk from sight
than in anv other place in the world.
The Calumet and Hecla copper irine

upon the value ot the ore being milled
or, more correctly, upon the amount
of the amalgamate gold in the ore
The miliumn is guided in adding
quicksilver by the feel of the outside
plates If the amalgam is hard and
ciumbly there is a deficiency of
mercury; if thin and slippery and
easily broken up, then too much mercury is being added and the supply-
is regulated accordingly.
A tempered copper instrument,
clearly a relic of the prehistoric age,
was fv.und a lew days ago by camp
era on the shores of Lake Gogebic, a
small b<dy of water in Michigan. It
is described as nine inches in length,
two inches broad at the large end
and one and one-halt inches at the
other, its weight being about two
pounds. To what purpose the tool
was applied is a matter of conjecture.
Several hardened copper tools have
been found in recent years in Michigan, as well as in other countries,
and the lost art ot tempering copper
"lust have been widely known by
°ur prehistoric ancestors.
