Recent advices from Denoro state  that the Oro Denoro mine is producing  a lot of excellent ore in the big- quarry  where the ore body is 80 feet wide and  has been traced on the surface within  SO'feet of the other quarry indicating  that the two quarries are probably on  the same big ore body. Shipments  have been curtailed at both the Oro  Denoro and Emma mines for want of  ore cars. The C.'P. R. ordered months  ago a larg-e number of ore cars but  these have not 'yet been received  !thoug-h expected in a few weeks. The  1 tunnel to tap the magnetic vein on the  'Oro Denoro is now in ore and next  week will be under a big open cut 40  'feet long and 12 feet deep in good ore  to which an upraise is to 3e made  when the ore will be glory-holed and  'the output easily doubled as soon as  cars are available Mr.K. L,. Burnet,  P.L.S., has been this week making  accuratcsurveys <of all the workings  and ore exposures preliminary to mak-  ^BGTi&^SJ&'ftft^^Srffor, ;the , company  and its shareholders?. This plan will"  show that larjge areas aggregating  'acres of the surface of the claim are  'all' ore while it is known that other  areas so far undeveloped are likely to  show large ore bodies with exploration.  The development work has for some  time has been in charge of S. L,. Graham, foreman, and has been well done.  The dry season has curtailed the  water supply so that the power plant  has been shut down occasionally, but  .thi.s^djfficuHT���is^..iwv^..bejiig^pxercomft.  by a well and a short pipe line to an  additional rivulet. Taken in all the  mining outlook at Denoro was never  better and a most hopeful tone is manifest which is likely to be made more so  by the big B. C. mine being re-opened  in the near future.

A Certain Cure for Croup  When a child shows symptoms of  croup there ia no time to experiment  with new remedies, no matter how  highly they may be recommended.  There is one preparation that can always be depended upon. It has been  in use for many years and has never  known to fail, viz: Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy. Give it a chance and  a quick cure is sure to follow. Mr, M.  F. Compton of Market, Texas, says of  it. "I have used Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy in severe cases of croup with  my children, and can  truthfully say it  ���^3 j always gives prompt relief."    For sale  5S j by all druggists.  Richard    Armstrong     on  Greenwood's Future  Predicts Large Investments by Am  erican Capital-  ��� >-v.

[  n  ���V  A  Richard Armstrong of Chicago is an  enthusiast about Greenwood high  grade properties. He owns a large  interest in- the Barbara mine. Mr.  Armstrong arrived a week ago, expecting to remain a couple of days, but  so much did he find to inspect that he  delayed his departure long enough to  miss an important Christmas engagement in Chicago. Not a moment .of  his waking hours was wasted during  his stay here. In descending shafts,  tracing surface leads or climbing up  stopes the Chicago visitor displayed a  restless energy that taxed the capacity  of his guide and expert adviser, W. H.  Jeffery, M. E. Mr. Armstrong wanted to gain first knowledge in order that  he might discuss the possibilities, cf  the camp with intelligence based on  personal observation.- It is safe to  assume that Mr. Armstrong's visit will  lead to an interesting sequel involving  the transfer of several American drafts  to a local bank. Before leaving for  home he had all the data of the mines  rahd their output'at hi3 finger tips. "Mr."  Armstrong is a great believer in the  future of the camp and his enthusiasm  stimulated everybody with whom he  came in contact.  "I am amazed at the remarkable development now in progress in the  vicinity of Greenwood," he observed  to the Times. "When I visited here  two years ago the Providence and Elkhorn were the only liigh grade properties that were being opened up and at  that period^neither aUrac.ted^especiai^  notice until a few months later. Claim  owners themselves did not appreciate  the fortunes that were to be made out  of the high grade true fissure veins.  Reports of an encouraging nature soon  began to reach me so I re-visited the  camp last June and was delighted at  the transformation that had taken  place. The possibilities of the cainp  had then been so clearly demonstrated  that I acquired an interest in the Barbara, an investment upon which I can  heartily congratulate myself. Now on  the occasion of inv third visit I find  that the number of shippers has  doubled in the past six months and  that the shipping mines are constantly  making additions to their respective  payrolls. This is indeed a Yery encouraging sign, indicating as it does  that Greenwood i.s yet to see more  prosperous times than were experienced before.  "If the history of mining camps and  countries is any criterion this camp  will soon be attracting the attention of  mining men and capitalists both of  thiscountry and the United States. It  is a remarkable circumstance that in  every instance where the development  of a claim in the high grade belt has  been undei taken, a shipping mine has  resulted. No other camp on the continent can p>esent the same record of  winners. Already it seems settled that  no 1500 feet of these true fissure veins,  extending as they do six or seven miles  north and south, has failed to carry  rich ore chutes. Therefore, intellig-ent  work on undeveloped claims in the  same belt should produce new shippers  without any possibility of failure. The  fact that you have now nearly a dozen  high grade propositions on a divide^  paying- or self-sustaining basis - .  all accomplished within two year*',',���  tells its own story. I iook for t,"l\  greater achievements, growth and'r. "���  gress in the ensuing two years, f ,"i^  people of Greenwood should feel/      -k  Continued r,u page two 3^**V^' BOUNDARY    OREEK   TIMES.  Continued from page one.  of their heritage. Money, work and  energy will soon make this one of the  famous high grade camps of the continent. Greenwood is not as well  known in Chicago or the middle west  as it should be because the American  daily press ijrnores the growth of the  British Coli:mbi;i mining industry.  AU that i�� ln-iiii^ done in the <vay of  attracting American capital to this  camp is the work of a few individuals,  who appreciate Greenwood's mineral  resources at their true worth.  "The provincial government could  help turn the tide this way if it undertook the publication for general distribution among American newspapers of  bulletins giving reliable information  of mining progress. A large influx of  American capital would follow just as  surely as the sun will rise tomorrow.  Then the people of British Columbia  would witness the same rapid development here that characterized South  Africa fifteen years ago when Cecil  Rhodes startled the world with the  story of South Africa's riches by lavish  advertising in the press of London,  Paris and Berlin.  "At the St. Louis fair I inspected  the mineral exhibit, which included  displays by nearly every state in the  union, the South American countries  and British Columbia. The universa1  opinion prevailed that the British Columbia exhibit in charge of H. B.  Munroe, surpassed all the others both  in character and extent. The B. C.  samples were larger than those from  other countries and were displayed to  better advantage. Some of them ran  $100,000 per ton and huge pieces of  copper ran over 65 per cent, in copper.  British Columbia captured 72 prizes  out of 85 competitions. Had the same  exhibit been made by any American  state, the American press would have  gone wild and a tremendous boom  would, have resulted."

If only two Christmas's ago you had invested in the Providence, Elkhorn or D. P. U.  mines, what would your share be worth now? The STRATHMORE) has the VALUES, the ORE) and the  LOCALITY. It is Fortune knocking at your very door, will you hear it? It might be the last time and  if you miss it you will have lost your opportunity of being in on the ground floor in a mine whi'cn is bound-  to become a great property.

Local  High  Grade   Mines   Employ  Over 100 Men  ���The payroll of the high grade properties, a thing unknown a few years  ago, continues to expand and gives  promise of faster growth in the near  future. There are easily over one  -- hundred- meri;einployed-in - the-varidus  properties. It is safe to say that ninety  per cent, of them reside within the  city limits. The importance of this  payroll from a business standpoint  cannot be overlooked. The encouag-  ing feature ij> that in many instances  the riWxt few months i will see doubled  the working force at various high  grade properties; and when one reviews the long list of low grade mines  in this vicinity faith in the great  destiny of:Greenwood as.a mining and  smelting centre turns to positive conviction.

The direction of the  process of the world is an upward  one.

B. Forgan, president of the  First National Bank of Chicago,  at  a banquet   tendered   him  at  Toronto.   .Mr.  Forgan is exceptional! y well qualified  to speak  with authority. . His early banking experiences were  gained in  Canada.    That he displayed aptitude for his career is evidenced  by. his rise to one  of  the most  eminent banking positions in the  "United States."  "Mr;r-Forgan-declared that the Americans have a  great meny things to learn,   and  a .great many things to do before  they  can establish or  evolve  as  sound and perfect system of banking as that enjoyed by the Dominion.    The   worst   feature  of  the  American system  is  that it  has led to the  establishment  of  isolated banks,   ten  thousand in  number, each under its own separate and distinct  management,  and   working-   for its  individual  profit without regard to the rest.  When lulls in progress occur the  weakness of the system is more  apparent.     The   people   become  nervous  aud frightened.     Then  the various banks instead of being  able to act together  and concentrate  their reserves   for mutual  protection do exactly the reverse.  Each one acts for itself, the fears  of. the customers spread to the  hankers, and what is known as a  bankers' panic results.     Besides  the bad effects of such conditions  in times  of financial stress, the  Americans  are  grossly extravagant in the use of cash reserves  in ordinary times.     With  them  every   shipment, is an  absolute  parting with so much of the cash  reserves,  and at certain seasons  in each   year  it ties up p*retty  tight  at the   centres,   while at  others they have more money on  their hands than they know what  to do with.   The main advantage  Canadians possessed in the opin-  ii^J^of*Mr;:-Forgan was m ;the  ^nbjiiaticm of the branch bsrak-  Jsf^toin  with; the. excellent  .oj^J^f&f bank cixculatiosi, which  ^lpsa^seii!t elasticity in it to  "'"i^^witKijjthe varying  business necessity.  has    pieceded  them.    They  are  recognized   as  the only things that have worth  in   themselves.     . Measure    the  amplitude  and  elevation of personality, and we see in the wider  and deeper emotions of humanity,  in   man's   larger    faculties   and  activities, in his clearer insight,  his purer  will, his nobler aims,  his   fuller    and   higher  life,   a  most .wonderful   gain  in  recent  centuries.,.   The-vision .of perfect  humanity is yet only faintly  discerned.    But however poor  and  crude,  the   ideal   of  a complete  manhood may be,   "it keeps  the  man," as has well  been said, "in  the pathway of human progress."  Duty_���is,Jhe���:equation ^demanded  by conscience between our actual  and  cur   ideal   manhood.     The  moral worth of personality ought  to    be" recognized      as     something   that   never   ought   to  be  degraded into  a   means to anything else.    It is an end in itself.  The ultitna+e standard  of  worth  is personal  worth,   and the only  progress that  is worth  striving  after, the only acquisition that is  truly good   aud  enduring,  is the  realization    of    our   truer   and  higher  self,   in  that  fulness  of  powers and elevation of character  that constitute the moral  perfection  to  which man instinctively  strives.     Unless  social improvement includes the  improvement  of the character and inner life of  the individual   members   of  the  race, it is a sham and a delusion.  In the  light of modern science,  humanity is one  vast organism,  whose  span of life runs back to  the very dawn of animal existence  upon   the  earth.     We   who  are  now on the stage are not only the  inheritors   of  the past   but   the  trustees of  the   future.    By our  unfaithfulness and negligence we  can retard End mar the progress  of humanity;  by   our   diligence  and loyalty we preserve  and further it.  ing acts that the provincial legislature has  alienated  the public  domain  and  given vast tracts to  railways, thus retarding the settlement  and development of the  agricultural resources of the interior.    The same iniquitous conditions   prevail   in    the    region  extending from Christina lake to  the Okanagan.   All the available  laud  therein   has   been   handed  over to the C.  P. R.   and not  a  single acre is available  for  preemption.      To     make     matters  worse, irrespective of the blocks  already selected, the reserve has  been extended to   a  point  sixty  mile north of the boundary line.  It is high time that  the legislature, having regard for the future  of the country, should show more  concern   for   the   rights of   the  people . than   for   the  clamorous  and exhorbitant demands of railway corporations. \  <r  FALL AND WINTER  Suitings, Overcoatings  T  1 rouserings  All Imported Goods of  the latest design.  lo see them is to  appreciate them.

The tobacco leaf grown  there is said to be superior in  quality and in great demand by  eastern cigar manufacturers. J.  A. Inkster, a mining man, recently organized a company in  Winnipeg for the purpose of devoting large areas of Okanagan  land to the cultivation of tobacco  which will be converted into  fragrant perfectos.  The Montreal and Boston Consolidated Copper Co. made a large  cash payment on the 10th inst.  on account of purchase of mining  properties.

IW'-'  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  I       ANB STOPS  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  The Canadian Mining Institute is  renewing its attempt to get a department of mines with a minister of the  Ottawa cabinet at its head. British  Columbia members of that institute  are personally wielding whatever influence they may possess in getting  that portfolio attached to this province.  Three years ago a deputation of the  Canadian Mining Institute, fifty  strong, after the passage of a strong  resolution the institute waited upon  the Ottawa government urging the  claims ofthe mining industry, outranked by none in importance in the  Dominion, to a separate portfolio. It  was argued in rebuttal that the work  of such, a department was already  accomplished by the geological bureau  and that there should be no idea entertained of superseding this bureau in  favor of a mining department in view  of the excellent wprk it had accomplished and' was accomplishing. The  deputation pressed their request  strongly, nevertheless1, on the grounds  that there was no intention of interfering with'the work of geologists.  That work was admitted to be of great  service to the country, but after all it  merely dealt with the mining condi  tipns from a scientific point of view,  wltereas a, minister of mines would deal  ^ith mining from the industrial and  economic conditions. The geological  [ bureau would be a valuable addition to  lis department and would be of the utmost service to such a.minister.  1    >  EARN  Comfortable Living  I  WITH  A  it  Poultry raising with a Chatham  Incubator is a very profitable and  easily managed occupation. Unless  you want to go into it extensively it  need take but very little of your time.  Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatry in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for more. That means a steady  market and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens success-  full}' with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she. should be  laying. While she is hatching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying five or ��>ix dozen eggs. The  percentage of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. ; They are made ol" thoroughly  seasoned wood; with, two walls, case  within case-1 ; BcLwaen these walls  mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  as a rock. . Chatham Incubators are  equipped with scientifically perfect  regulators which are an infallible  means of regulaling the temperature.  2 Greenwood, B.

The greatly improved appearance of  the lead in the south drift of the  Strathmore mine in the north belt has  caused the local shareholders to rejoice.  The quartz vein averages over six  inches in width and contains the best  looking- ore yet encountered in any of  the workings. A shipment will be  made to the Trail smelter before the  end of the month. It promises to  average over $120 per, ton.  At the bottom of a 60 foot shaft sunk  on the vein, the occurence of a fault  led to the driving of a 60 foot crosscut  at the end of which the lead was again  found in place." At .the SO foot level  drifts were run north and south on the  Vein 20 feet and 60 feet, respectively.  From the former drift ore running $100  per ton was stoped out up to the surface. In the other drift good progress  is being made. Sixty feet of additional drifting will bring the level to a  point directly underneath the open cut  on the surface whence four and one  half tons of rich ore were extracted by  the former owners. A crosscut tunnel  farther down the mountain and in 220  feet will tap the lead when extended  an additional 60 feet. This will provide ISO feet of stoping ground. The  outlook for the Strathmore is indeed  encouraging and the confidence of its  owners promises to be richly rewarded  at an early date. A parallel lead farther up the hill has not yet been opened up. It presents a good showing on  the surface. The Strathmore i.s located  on promising ground as it is only separated by one claim from the ProviT  dence, the high grade dividend payer.  Development work is in charge of C.  Scott Galloway who is accomplishing  results with due regard for economy.  The Strathmore is owned by a joint  stock company with a capital of  $150,000.  . The forthcoming shipment will comprise ten tons of $130 ore. During the  present week Mr. Galloway as.-aved  -samples-from the-second grade ore and  to his surprise got an average return  of $106.57 per ton. The values were  gold $20.80, and silver $85.77.  The meeting of the British Columbia  Live Stock Association which is called  for Jan. 4th at Kamloops, should be attended by every man in the interior  who is interested in the cuttle industry.  There is much to be gained by both  buyers and sellers from a system of  association which can be made of  mutual benetit. Large owners, small  owners, drovers and dealers in British  Columbia all have interests which are  mutually inter-depeudent and by combination these interests will all receive  their just recognition.  ,?"^*:-'",?"'r*.'' ���> ,T /  ' :::'&'#&���,  Used i:i M.B.K.
