3-ood Ore  u
Loclgre Struck in Cross-cut at 100ft
Level Disclosos Solid Body of
Ore Over 15 Feet, Wide.
, ■*-„■
' All summer woik has been being'
- pushed on the Yellow Jacket Mine,
near Disc j very on Pine Creek, the
crew working night and day shifts.
A shaft 100 ft deep has-been put
idoivn ou the hanging  wall,/ which
was1 cross    cut-at different levels
when on ,each occasion the ledge
matter -was encountered. 1 This
week a cut was put in at the too ft.
level, which broke into the vein,
shouing so far i$]4 ft. of sold  ore
''and as yet no sign of foot "wall.
The ore itself, • at this last"•■'level,
shows marked improvement and  is
> if anything better than obtained'*on
' -   surface croppings in 1900, at which
;time so much excitement was occasioned by the discovery. The stamp
mill.i-wlrich was run continuously
_^ on the property this season,, yielding most satisfactory results and the
downer,- Mr.' Ruffner is confident that
"fhe'Yellow Jacket Hwill - ultimateb;
'   piove to be a great-gold'- producer.
Extensive Coal Measures Located Near Telegraph Creek.-
Mr. James Stables, when return-*
ing from a prospecting trip near the
Tooya River, discovered a large deposit of coal, extending over an
area of five miles. - . ' . - - *
v The coal measures were staked
in '99 aud subsequently abandoned;
this fall Messrs. George Coutts and
Robert 'MacKay re-located the discovery, staking 13 leases which
practically covers tbe entire deposit. '      ;'
In an interview with Mr. Coutts,
ha said:—The coal is bituminous,
there is an immense body of it, we
measured tbe ledge at Discovery
and found it to be 150 yards wide,
it lies in a sandstone formation and'
can be ejsily mined. Access to th'e
property is not difficult, it being
only to miles from the Dease Lake
trail and about 40 miles from Telegraph Creek.
The locators, who are all local
men, have formed a syndicate and
intend to thoroughly prospect, develop and" open tip the new coal
fields early next summer,
k With the prospect of a railroad
passing through or near the property, aud the pressing demand" for
.fuel, both here and? at-Dawson, the
Syndicate should have little trouble
ita securing capital, .

, Anton Larson, John ., Larson,
Stanley Hansen 'ar.cFLouis Genaca
are back and in an interview said;
-"We arrived 'in'• good shape at
Whitehorse and wentrigbt through
reaching Sheep-Cieek eight days'
after' leaving Whitehorse.' .Our
party spent a day on" Sheep Creek
and one" day on Bullion, both of
these ^ creeks-are ^'practically box
canyons there beiug.no benches on
either, they are fed from ' glaciers
and must be badly; flooded 'during
the working season.,- There is no
timber as the creeks are above tim-
ber-line; we realized'that; even if
good pay were in the creek^beds / it
would nof„be practical to work them
asthe season, would be'a very short
one,' the^ earlyt part of<-the season
would be spoiled by; floods', and the
actual w'drlcingseasofr-wmild^'o'hij'*
be for* a few weeks prior 'to, the
freeze up.
At Whitehorse-the opinion is that
a good field has been opened np, all
the people are booming the ,Alsek
country but so far as we know there
is no proof that a big strike has
been made, and some of our party
got into trouble for expressing their
opinions too freely ' at Whitehorse,
they say it is dangerous to contradict any of the good reports, arid also that no'great stampede has taken
place as not over 150 people went in.
Yukon Sun Burned Out   by-
Explosion of Benzine.
The office, plant and stock ofthe
Daily Morning Sun was destroyed
by fire last week. One ofthe employees was so , severely burned
that he' is not expected to recover.
The fire was caused by the explosion of a small quantity of benzine, kept for cleaning type. Notwithstanding the severe loss occasioned by the fire the Sun appeared
as usual and will continue publish
regularity as heretofore.
- Otii Stone, tbe man so badly burned, is suffering great paiu, but is
doing belter than the doctors at
first supposed it 'was possible be
could clo; tbe critical period, however, has not yet beeu reached.

to' .'.�� /  m  The Physician as -a "Gambler.  The physician is geneirflly 'Considered  to bo rather a poor business man, and  Iris history in Toionto compels us to assert that he is not a good gambler. Tho  historian tells us that all peoples, of all  shades and colois, gamble, but 'the biggest plunger of the lot is the Anglo-Sav-  on, "because of his stipeib vital hfo-  force." We incline chiciiy lo three  forms: horses, caids and stock margins.  The "gambler at the Woodbine has a  good time for a couple of weeks, has hi3  ups and downs, and, of course, comes out  -short at-the end of the races. lie doesn't mind, however, if he his had lots of  fun, and lie goes to work with the daud-  &2>le aim of saving something for the  next races. Card gambling is less healthy.  The player works at niglit in a room  / .which becomes close and stuffy, ajid  generally smokes and diinks loo much.  Neither of these foirns of gambling .is  oonsideicd, correct; neither meets with  (the uppioval of the clergy.  Stock gambling is lc.illy the only form  ���that Is eminently respocUble. Here tht  doctor can voik shoulder to shoulder  with the picncher, the elder, tho church  fwardon, the class, leader, tho widow and  orphan, or the fellow who has tho widow's and oiphan's money. We understand that the pieaclicr is moie scientific in his methods than the innocent doctor, and .becomesi,thcrefoie the shiewdei  speculator; he knows more about selling  short. Wo leain fiom experts that in  stock margin gambling it is more satisfactory to sell what you haven't got  1   than to buy svhat you aon't get.  Of course, in .thei.iong_run,ithe large  dealers capture thepotsi They then become gieat philanthropists, pillars of  lurches, and by .common'consent occupy the highest seats in the synagogue  Occasionally, however, even th6 top-  aaotchers come to grief, but stiong influences come to their rescue. The press  Jpudly proclaims that they are men of  undoubted integrity. Tho banks help  'them in variousi ways and assume an  "attitude" that has a "reassuring effect."  In troublous times things sometimes become unhinged, but gradually "stability"  "comes. This is well explained in a certain instance in one of the leading papers  'as follows; "The cause making for stability is the fact that many weak hold  'era have been wiped out, and their places  taken by strong interests, fully able to  protect themselves." The devil may  ���take care of the small holders, the press  the banks; and the people in high places  don't bothermuch about them.  Stock fevei has been endemic among  the physicians of Toionto for the last  twenty-five years Oui piofcssion fui  ���nisthes a fine share of the "small dealers"  ���who are necessary foi the game. Duf-  ifin's Creek, Hogs' Hollow and'Mimico  '���stocks are put on the market at a suit-  Able time. They may mean nothing, but  for gambling pin poses they answer very  -.well for a while.

McCaull was wounded,  ttnd fell hack on his seat. The six pas  bengers in the coach were helpless with  [fright. "Calamity Jane" scrambled to  (the seat, lashed the horses into a, run  and escaped.

I  The Upheaval of tlie Celt  Someone  hao   been  yelling  foi ih   the  \ irtucs of the Celt.   The upheaval of tho  Celt is a pel iodic event, and is in some  way distnntly related to the Australian  drought cycles and flic spots on the sui.  Personally (says a writer in an Australian paper)   I  havo  always   found   tliat  you can make a fast fiicnd nnd swoin  ally of the Celt by simply leinarking in  an  affable  manner, "Good    nijrht,  Sergeant!"

TJtfs, the Celt is a very fine fellow as long  as you address him as "Sergeant"���un-  less he is a. sergeant���then I am alwaya  careful  to address him  as  "Inspector."  That, however, has to be done with discretion���if done  too often or'too sud-  devkv the Celt is liable- to hurst.

The total general avciagc of the  drillings of several <bf the largest  companies' holdings covering a pei-  lod of several years, gives, the value oithe gia/el,-between " 17 cents  and 19 cents per cubic yard, an average depth of ii yards.

D.,~ Pastor  Westminster Prosbytorian Church,  New York Oity.  Tak�� ye away tha stone.���St John, xl���  69.  On the one side of the stone door'of  -(Lazarus' tomb stood the dark mess-  sager wc call death ; on the other, the  i <oighty King of all life ; for Lazarus  ���&ad been dead four days, and Christ  &ad come to undo the work of death  ��nd to give to the young man the most  precious of all gifts���that is, life.  ���He who had created the worlds'and  '���iad    kept    them    in    right    relations  through all  the ages so  that they go  einging  on   their  journey   could   have  hurled that  stone  away  with a   word.  |Sut   since he  was   working  from  the  __ kutnan side,  He   must   needs  respect  fjuman conditions and give man a share  , in His glorious work and also a chance  -io learn the lessons of His great life  on earth, for Christ's mission was not  �����       to much to make eternal  impressions  ���*'     mn matter   on the outer world, as to  aiake impressions on mind���the human  foul.  "   ' It happens, then,  that the chief service   of   man   to his fellow-men is   to  tlear away difficulties  that  the  Divine  Person  and  power  may   work,  as   on  that day human hands had to ioil away  '"'    the stone  from  before the  tomb1 that  ILazarus rmight  feel   the   thrill  of  life  Difficulties   are  of  vaiious   kinds,  but  til alike prevent the   free  working of  fvine power in the soul.     A non-con-  fuctor   has   come   between "God   and  man, and this must be removed  from  the human side because of human sin  SHiis is why Christ came around from  the side of divinity to the side of humanity,    bringing   His    divinity    with  Him to give effectiveness to salvation.  The business   of discovery in the natural world is to cleai away Iimclianccs  fend lo make channels for lorces which  were long ago leposed in natuic right  under our hands and so near that they  actually touch us:     Just as tlie  gieat  discoveiies    in   electi icily   consist   in  giving duection to  that mighty powei  fchat it may become a thing of service  irather than a means of destruction, so  the chief business of lehgion is to cleai  jway the difficulties in the divine path  so  that  God  nwy   woik   natuuily  in  the hearts of men       M.iitha was  unhappy  in .the incident ofthe text because   she   was   not   willing   to   make  �����   svay for the full working of the power  v'-of  God.      Most  of the  unhappmess  of  dthe,' world  is   on  the   same   account  "** Every''day   wc''pass   by   a   thousand  graves of buried hopes of other^people  and never once stop to see if we may-  roll away the btonc that the light of  , God may shine in  lo give life to the  Bead.  Plow wonderful-it would be if we  could fully realize that Christ stands on  the human side of every trial and every  trouble and every disappointment and  every sin and says -���"You do your  part and I will do Mine !^ You remove all that the human' hand can  take away and I will banish the rest,.  as with a word I put death to flight at  Lazarus' tomb." It may not be muchv  that you can do, but if it is ever so  little it must be done before the divine  power can woik. The world can never  be made better without positive effort The cheerful face, the willing  heart, the forgiving spirit, the helping hand , and the godlike purpose  make the journey of life a giand  march of triumph.  But we are also to remove the stone  of indifference. Many people were  ���Jhcre that day who did not seem to  -care much whether Lazarus ever lived  or not ; and even Martha seemed indifferent to any effort on the part of  the Saviour. So we find in the world  to-day the head-shaking and hand-  wringing people who sav :���"It will do  ao good; there h no use in trying' *  It is yoti' place and mine to lift hard  ��t this world's weight of sorrow that  the resurrection power of God may  give lifr to a dead world. Martha  end those who were with her have  taught us how we may toll away the  -stone of unbelief and have the power  of new and greater life ; for when  they hesitated and doubted lie asked:  "Said I not unto ihcc that if thou  wouldst believe thou shouldst see the  glory of God ?" .  Then can we not see the glory of  God without believing ? No, we  cannot. It is the only way. There  is many a dark gi.ive of departed faith  seated forever because wc do not be-  Jieve enough to reach out a hand lo  ftelp. There are lhousands of them  <3n this city.  When they believed and removed the  atone, what matchless glory did they  ���see ! ft is only by faith that you may  see the glory of God. When we hear  -that an astronomer has discovered a  "new comet wc do not read lli.it he  found it with the un.iidcd eye. lie  aaw it with his telescope long bffor.c  the rest of us know anything about it.  When a man announces a mighty  truth of God, thai he has seen its  fteauty and felt its power, though wc  do not see it, we know that it has been  made known to him by the worgjcrtul  reach and revelation ot faith. When  we weic in the obsci vatory searching  for the stars and could not find them  the teacher said ������' Get the focus ; -.ee  that you are on the right line of vision;  then  you will see."  /.TOTTERING  WREOK.

Both these foices are composed of volunteers or militia acting under the instructions of so-ne 1 500 piofessional  soldiers who form th? nucleus of aitillery  and garrisons lequlreJ lor fixed defences,  the technical direction of lorts and mines  and a militaiy tuition staff. The Australian field force will consist on a peace  footing of 13,911 mon .uid sixty guns, capable of expansion in lime of war to 26 -  633 men and eight 'our guns. The garrison force will be composed of ll.SSfl men  and twenty-six guni, exclusive of the  rifle clubs, which l "<v total over 30,000  men.

King Edward's Visit to Vienna.  Dealing with Kin? Edward's visit to  Vienna, The London Chronicle says :���  "A grim spectacle seen by the King in  his Visit to the Impeiial burial vault In'  the Church of tho Capuchins has escaped  record. It is a low of more than 150  crystal vases, mounted In gold and topped by a crown Each of these vases  contains tho heart of a dead Hapsburg.  In the thirteenth centuiy tho Duke  Francis died in Switzeiland, and dnected  that his heait should he leinoved and  sent to Vienna. Ever since this custom  has been obseived in the Hapsbuig family. On the death of a member the  heart is removed and preserved in a  crystal vase. In the Capuchin vault  there are now 332 such vases, and 113  Imperial coffins. The suiplus of thirty-  nine vases contain the hearts of Haps-  burgs whose bodies aie butlr>d elsewhere.  The sole exception to this Hapsbuig custom was that of the late AicliduKe Lud-  wlg, whose will forbade the removal of  his heart.  to fall intorthe Seine, that would be an  accident; if they pulled you out again,  that would be a misloitune."    ���  A little girl was wnling a composition on the labbit,-aiid,-never having  jeen a creature of anv sort, enquiied of  ler teacher whethei the labbit had a  ail.

It being a holiday,  these young farmers had the freedom of  the island _and were apparently having a  very jolly "time on the shore. A lad of  Beven, who had been intently watching  their sport from tho deck of the boat,  turned to his mother and said eagerly:  "How bad do you hnve to be to get  Ihero, mamma?"  There was good talk at a tea party  given once at the obsetvatorv of Cambridge, England. Sydney Smith was  there, and although he took the wonderful work of the place seriously, he had  a- light manner of expressing himself.  The^ party had been led up to look at  Jupiter, and this was his comment:  "Jupiter? If you hadn't told me, I  Bhould have taken it for a bad sihilling."'  "Where is Sir John Herschel?" asked one  of the guests. "He is at the Cape of  Good Hope," said the astronomer, Airy.  "He was ordered there to observe the  stars of tho southern hemisphere." "Ah,"  laid Sydney Smith, "I suppose you astronomers, when you are ill, are advised  to change your stars just as we ordinary  mortals are told to change our air."  It is related that one evening last  winter, at a dinner given in honor of  Mrs. Pat Campbell, in New'York, the  English actress remarked, loftily: "They  wanted me to play 'Tess of the D'Urbor-  villes* In England, but I thought it a  vulgar character, and I can't be gross  vou know." Thi3 from the woman whose  whole fame rested on her impersonations  of women with malodorous pasts or notorious presents was astounding to all  present, each one of whom had said some  thing in extenuation of the sins of pool  Tess and in admiration of Hardy's  masterpiece as a dramatic character  Irawing. For a moment there _ was an  embarrassed silence, nnd then Miss Wai-  ren, who is to star in the play this season, spoke up innocently: "It is dreadful  lo be so sensitive. I expect, Mrs. Camp  oell, you find it hard even to accept youi  share of the gross receipts."

Purifying the Cream.       ��� (^h  1 During the last three years consider-'  able effort has been made to find a  means by which the odor and taste of  wild onion and bitter weed may be removed from milk and cream. In the  spring of 1901, the writer was requested to tiy a patent compound claimed  to remove all kinds of weedy taste  from milk, but it piovcd to be an ab-., ' !  solule failure. Cooking sod,i^.(sn!era- *  tus) was also gnen'a like trial, out failed of the purpose claimed for it by  .some people. Having lailed so far  to find anything that when fed to the  cows would remove weedy taste 111 the  milk,- the next step was treating the  milk and cream Bitter weed tasta  was removed entirely from cream by  thoroughly mixing it with two or  more parts of water at any l< mpera-  ture above 70 dcgiees Fahrenheit, and  then running'the whole through tho '  separator.
