J. Rattle, who is now looking  after the affairs of the Ladysmith  Smelting Company, has been in the  city for the past few days making  arrangements for the reopening of the  smelter, says the Ladysmith Chronicle.  Mr. Rattle, in company with W. J.  Watson, lias made a thorough inspection of the plant and is highly pleased  with the excellent state in which he  found the machinery.  While the ordinary run of frpp  miners' certificates expire on the 31sl  of May, provision has been made- in  tho case of enlisted men, whereby renewals are not necessary. The same  applies to assessment work, but in  cases where the soldier has a partner  or partners, those not in uniform, or  returned or discharged, must keep up  their share of the work and have it  recorded in the usual way.  With the finding of' a large seam  of coal at the new workings of the  Granby Company near Cassady's Landing, an important forward step in the  company's recently initiated Vancouver Island venture has been made.  Three slopes are in process of being  driven. One of these has reached a  depth of 150 feet, where a seam of coal  14 feet in depth has been struck. ., It  can be used in a  hundred ways in  INDUSTRIAL and CONSTRUCTION  work of all kinds  Consult our New Business Manager  about adapting gas to  your  needs  VANCOUVER GAS COMPANY  Carrall and Masting: Sts.   _______ 1   'Phone Seymour 5000  USE  ELASTIGU  The  Tough,  Elastic, Adhesive  Cement  (Ready  for use.) • *  FOR YOUR  LEAKY ROOF  Send for Free Booklet  MANUFACTURED    BY  THE BARRETT COMPANY, Ltd.
