LOGAN & C  Copper Street  Greenwood  THE ELKHORN Mil  After Varying Experiences  Has Been  SUCCESSFULLY FINANCED  In Spokane, and Work of Development Will Be Carried on Vigorously���Property a Good One.  Through the influence, of Dr.  J. IS. Spankie aud H. V. Fuller  of this city, the lSlkhorn has  been placed on a sound financial  basis and the work of development will now be carried forward  with despatch. Tlie Elkhorn  adjoins the Providence and has  in it great possibilities. L-altcr-  ly work has been carried on under  the serious handicap of a shortage of funds. Its largest share  owners have never lost faith in  the Elkhorn and the public has  waited full of belief in the outcome.  The former owners of the property, Sutherland and McDonald,  were always enthusiastic over the  property, and they had a right to  be. Tbey took hold of it after  desultory work had beeu done on  it-by several people, and in a  short time extracted nearly*$75,-  000 worth of high gra.de ore therefrom, ores that were excessively  rich in silver. Soon after merging the property into a joint slock  concern the lead was lost. Differences of opiuiou .appear to  have arisen as to methods to follow, or directions to run for the  ore, but shortage of money interfered with carrying on a well-  defined and systematic plan of  operation.  Now, however, with money-for  methodical mining a system of  development in sympathy with  the findings in the property aud  its relations to the Providence  and other leads, will be inaugurated, and mining will begin. The  company will proceed from known  results, aud with effective management there is little doubt that  within a very short time the Elkhorn will again enter the shipping list.  MIND TABLETS  Be not disturbed about lite future,  for-if you ever come to it, you will  have the same reason for your'g-uide  which preserves you at present.  Always think twice before you speak  once, and remember, one wotd of  slander may do your neighbor irrep".-  ablc injury.  The friends that wealth makes are is  the quicksands, but the friends of poverty are like the fixed stars in heaven.  One secret of self-d:nial, one sacrifice of inclination lo do duty, is worth*  all the niereg'-'.d thoughts, warm feel  ings,   passionate   prayers,    in   which  some people indulge themselves. ',."  I hold not with the pessimist that all  things are ill, nor with the optimist  that all things are well. All things are  not ill, and alfthings are not well, but  all things shall be well,, because this is  God's world. >  The habit of blaming others when  things go wrong is au iusidioits and  dangerous one. Par mo-e is it to the  purpose to inquire within whether the  fault, or much of it, may not lie at  home.  Live not for selfish aims. Live to  shed joy on others. Thus best shall  your own happiness- lie secured; for no  joy is ever given that docs not have  quick echo in the giver's own heart.  Courage! Courage in everything!  It is inseparable from all real worth of  any kind. The average woman sees it  not less than does the deep sea diver.  It takes more courage to live and it  takes still more courage to enjoy living.

ELSON  RICH HAUL  Montreal.���United States officials in this city have been notified to look out for a New York  diamond robber. who,accordiug  to the best information, has left  Europe with a half-million dollars'' worth of precious stones.  Now that there is an import duty  of 5 per cent, ou diamonds coming into Canada the Dominion  officials are also hot on the trail.  The diffierent Canadian ports are  being watched, as the Washington authorities have learned that  he has sailed or is about to sail  for Canada. .  PAY ORE COLUMN  Electric power has been  applied to  the big crusher on the Mother Lode.  The new electric compressor at the  Emma mine is in commission and is  working very satisfactorily.  The Granby Co. has installed a large  crusher at the Gold Drop mine with a  capacity of 3,000 tons in 24 hours.  The new compressor on the Idaho  mine is to be operated by a 300 horse  power electric motor recently  arrived.  Work will be resumed on the Prince  Henry next week, Some fine ore is on  the 225 foot level, where drifting will  begin.

We submit lhe following problem to  those mathematically inclined, particularly to the fellows who figure for the  Great Northern railway:'  A certain Amerioan: railway last  year paid the Times a set price for a  certain space, paying in railway trans  portadon at regular rates. Beginning  with 1907, the uew commission law in  the state of Washington made* such an  exchange illegal, decreeing that railways must pay iu cash for their advertising and that newspapers must pay  in cash for their transportation. For  the year 1.07 the said railway offers  the Times half last year's price for  same space. Query���Did the railway  in 1906 charge us twice as much as the  transportation'was tvor.fi, or-has the  appointment of a railway law and  commission doubled the value of their  mileage?  C. P. R. GETTING BUSY  Some time ago it was reported that  the C. P. R.' had made the statement  that Hill's invasion of Canada would  be met by the Canadian's further invasion of the American field. The  Canadian at present has virtual entrance into Spokane over the new  Corbin road. Now comes the news  that by May 1st next, the Canadian  will be running trains into Portland,  Ore., a contract for use of tracks between Spokane and the Webfoot capir  tai having been made with the O. R. &  N.'Co.  WHAT IS A GENTLEMAN?  ���-Irhe^questioii-alw-aysxomesnip:-  What is a gentleman ? Some  say he is a man with a silk hat,  and others a man with a smooth  tongue. But men connected with  the newspaper trade have a canon  of their own. "Mr. Editor,"  said a patron one day, "how is it  you never call on me to pay for  your paper?" "Oh," said the  man of types, "we never ask a  gentleman for money." "Indeed!"  the patron replied. "How do you  manage to get along when they  dou't pay?" "Why," said Mr.  Editor, "after a certain time we  conclude he is not a gentleman,  and we ask him."-- Loudon Mail.  JUST OFF THE BAT  GREENWOOD! FROST  For Many Years Sub-Port  to Grand Forks  BECOMES PORT OF ENTRY  Collector McCutcheon Y/iII Have Several Sub-Ports Under His  Control Henceforth.  Greenwood the centre of a large  customs paying district and natural port of cntrey to the growing* country west is at last coming into its own, largely through  the represeut;*tio'iis aud good  offices of Representative Ross.  Greenwood has been designated  as a port of entry. At least sub-  ports Midway, Bridesville, Sidley,  Osoyoos and Keremeos will be  tributary to Greenwood and Collector . Hugh McCutcheon will  have a promising field under his  control.' Last year Greenwood  reported to the Grand Forks  ofiice collections of "nearly S('<0,-  000, the exact figures being:  V Customs $37,61.8.42  - Inland. Revenue..  20,7:08.53  Total $58,326.95 -  The amount was collected in  sums ranging from five cents  upward. Hitherto the: western  sub-ports named have reported to  Gr'and'Forks, but now .that they  have been arranged as part of  the Greenwood field, the importance of this port will be wonderfully increased.  It is believed that Myucaster  will presently be made a sub-port  as-the natural Canadian inlet of  the Chesaw country south and-  west.. Inasmuch as the Great  Northern is the natural outlet of  all this Chesaw district fast coming iuto importance, and as that  road for a lcng.distance keeps  within Canada a port of some importance will doubtless develop  at Myucaster.  It is understood that attached  to the staff of Collector McCutcheon will lie D7'A::"Macdonald "as  Preventive officer iu Greenwood  and Robt. D. Kerr as Preventive  officer at Bridesville. These appointments will command general  approval.  EXPECTS SOMETHING  Finance Minister Tatlow has  Avritten to John Kirkup, the  government agent to have the  figures verified which were prepared by City Assessor John Gib-  sou at the request of the city  council and forwarded to the provincial government, in regard to  the property of the several mining companies within the city  limits, which, owing to the law,  the city is not allowed to tax.  This statement Avas sent to the  government with a request that  the city be allowed a portion of  ,the=t,w:bi-="()e_--.ceiit._=-tax._.Gollected-  from the mining companies within the city limits. The fact that  the Finance Minister is having  the figures verified, taking in  connection with the statement of  Premier McBride that Rossland  is entitled lo something and that  he -would give the matter favorable consideration, it is thought  indicates that the government intends to make the city a grant. A  few thousand dollars a year from  the government would lie most  acceptable to the taxpayers of  the citv.���-Rossland Miner.  Heredity is what a man blames  his father and mother for, aud  environment what he blames his  -wife and children for,  The Ilonduran capital has fallen into  the hands of the Vicaraguan enemy,  and the war seem- over.

Moycr, Pettibone aud Hayward will  be tried separately and at Boise.  France is having trouble again in  Moroco, and Kaiser William is blamed  for it.  Harry Wright was elected by acclamation on Monday last to fill the seat  in Dewdnev, left vacant by the resig-  nation of Premier McBride.  Coppers, like railway stocks, appear  to be settling down. The wise ones  are buying B. C. Copper Co.'s shares  these days. ,.  This is the time of year when Mr.  N. Stewart Dunlap, at the head of the  floral department of the C. P.

V. & 15., involving a matter of trespass in the Myers creek canyon, aud which caused such excitement  at Midway about fifteen month, ago,  is being heard, this week by Chief !fu3  ticc Hunter. There is a large array of  legal talent on each side.  Canada Booms  Call at the Greenwood Bakery "_;>i-  New England bread,  For the eight months  ending with February, Canadian trade totalled $-.10,-  000,000, being over S51,000.-  000 more than for the corresponding period last year.  Fpr the same period" the  revenues reached the $58,-  000,000 mark, a gain over  the like period of last year  of over SS.000,000.  Expenditures incrc ased  only half a million so the  ��-ov'eninieut-'s "financial betterment for the eight months  as compared with last year  was seven and a half million dollars.      _  HALF HOLIDAY  Mr. J. H. Hawthornthwaite, M.P,  P., has proposed in the Provincial legislature au amendment to the Shops  Regulation Act of  1900, as follow.:  "3. (1.) All or any classes of shops  shall be closed and remain closed after  six o'clock in the afteriioou on each  and every day of the week except  Thursdays and Saturdays, and on Saturdays after nine o'clock in the afternoon, ancl on each and every Thursday  all and any classes of shops shall be  closed at one o'clock in the afternoon  and remain closed."  BETTER TERMS  Premier McBride's Better Terms  resolution carried by a vote of 20 lo 10.  Mr. J. A. Macdonald, leader of the  opposition, introduced an amendment  to the main resolution, but which was  voted down. This amendment agreed  with the vital part of the main resolution a iu I asserted that the measure of  relief proposed by the Dominion govern ment was inadequate and could not  be accepted as a final aud unalterable  settlement.  The debate was for the most part  free from fireworks aud tirade,  although A. E. McPhillips appears to  have lost the key to which the music  was set. Unable to force an adjournment of the debate, or to get an amendment forward, the Socialists refused to  vote and left the house.  THINGS DOING  A fruit cannery for Kelowna.

LONDON'S DISCOVERY  Since the utter rout of the Socialist  party, otherwise the Progressives, in  London, at the recentclection, the new  council has been making an inquiry  into the financial status of the municipality. Already a 'floating debt of  325,000,000 bearing 5 per cent interest  has been discovered, and the council  stands committed to an outlay on  projects that call for over 5100,000,000  more.  The Progressives were certainly past  masters iu high finance, and talked and  voted dollars by the million with an  ardor and spirit that is refreshing, if  not commendable.   ' '  The new council-finds itselfin im-  medial:; need of 535,000,000 to carry on  the city government, and where it is to  come from is now a serious concern.

Riverside...,  3��  MMQND AND TEXAS  Are Being Syndicated for  Operation  NEXT  THE   PROVIDENCE  Admirably Locate, and from Reports  Ripe "for Operation and With  Promising Results.  A syndicate has been formed  composed of prominent mining  and business men to carry ou the  work of exploiting- the Dimond  and Texas claims lying immediately east of the Profidencc.  Both claims are crown granted  and have been bonded for the  syndicate at favorable prices and  terms. The Dimond abuts against  the Providence on the north and  east and it is understood that the  workings of the latter extend to  the former's line.  The Dimond was the cause of  considerable litigation two years  ago. The local owners of the  Providence persuaded that the  property was valuable and should  be secured by them before too late  acquired it by. purchase giving in  payment therefor SS.OOO worth  of Providence stock. The deal  was objected to by the Chicago  shareholders aud-a bitter law-suit  followed, resulting iu the court's  decision being adverse to the  local people. The sale being  declared off the property reverted  to it's original owner, William  Diamond, aud the stock was  ordered cancelled. But-the value  of the property has not been  overlooked by shrewd people aud  after much negotiation a deal  has beeu effected by which it and  the adjoining claim will be merged and worked by a strong syndicate.  Plans for the immediate development of the Diamond are being-  matured. It is claimed that the  bre on the lower levels of the  Providence has been opened to  the Dimond line, .and that as a .  result the property has- been pro-"'  spected iu the most effective manner. The syndicates plan of  operation will apparently be to  sink on the Dimond at "a point  near the Providence line aud as  that properties levels are reached  to extend the same into the Dimond and take out ore. If the data  as given are reliable, and they  are so believed, the syndicate will  on a few months' outlay of wages  be in a position to take'out ore to  carry development at the pro-.  perty's cost. Some good.ore has \  been found on the Texas and  large iron showings abound, but  the Dimond particularly^ believed to be a duplicate of the Providence.

EDITORIAL NOTES  The Nicaraguaus tallied one  in tbe battle of March 20th witb  their Houdurau enemy.  Why blame labor for turning*  to what we call a silly nostrum,  when capital is eternally besieging parliament for tonics and  galvanics?  Mark Twain may immortalisse  himself .by his great attack on  Christian Science, but we think  some of its teachings will outlive  the memory of Twain.  We think  that  the word Free  Reading Room  is, iu  a  sense, a  misnomer, as applied to   the one  in the rooms of the Miners' union.  The managers, doubtless, aim to  make it such,   but  the  fact that  the room is the meeting place of  the Miners' union and the Socialistic club, practically  shuts it at  certain times.against the  public.  We   think,    however,   that   the  writer of a recent  article  in the  Ledge   hardly did   the   case  in  . hand justice in dealing with the  question.    He  robbed his article  of much of its force by introducing   matter   entirely   irrelevant.  However, our sympathies are with  him and his associates in the matter.    We think the institution de-  -"serves--some���public���recognition,  and even support.    What if some  Socialistic   papers    were    found  there?    Who   has   the   right  to  censor the reading matter chosen  by the committee, so long as it is  neither  immoral or treasonable?  We went through the Reading  Room recently and examined the  literaturcdisplaycd, and although  we found some literature  Socialistic, we found  much  more  that  was not.    Wc   found   there  the  Victoria,     Vancouver,     Seattle,  Spokane, Nelsou, Winnipeg, Toronto, New York and other dailies.  We found among  periodicals the  Muusey.   Everybody,   Review  of  Reviews,   Physical  Culture, All-  Story,   and,    strangely    it   may  seem, the Christian Guardian.  We cannot separate ourselves  from the thought that the city  owes this institution* some tneas-  v ure of support. Tbis is a mining camp, pure and simple, and  the life of the miner enters quitp  largely into the town's life. The  town's prosperity and welfare are  closely linked with the physical,  mental aud moral well-being of  those who work in the mines, the  men on whose toil depends primarily the material welfare of  most of us. We think tbe city  owes these, meu something, and  we know no easier way to acknowledge it than to contribute  in measure to the support of the  room, which^ to very many of  them, is their leisure-hour home.  A well conducted reading room is  a g-ood asset in any community  making- as it does for public  welfare.  Man lives, like the mariner  who sails an unknown sea. He  rises in the morning- to sound the  depths or scan the horizon for  headland or harbor, and he lies  down at night ignorant but that  ere morning- his boat may have  drifted on shore.  Down east, whence comes all  inspiration for good, the maple  sugar workers are obliged to work  these fine Sundays. Maple sugar  is more valuable than copper  matte, and anyway the 100 cents  a day men can't afford to lay off.  The law!   Kentucky has long- been quoted as the home laud of "whiskey.  Something   is  happening   down  there. Out of a total of. 115  counties in the state 95 have declared for local option. No  "moonshine" about this, evidently.  Ter report of the Canadian  Insurance Commission is too intense reading  to be interesting.  In a recent Winnipeg interview, Mr.  C. "W. Peterson, g-encral manager of  the Canadian Pacific irrigation, in  describing what is to be tne greatest  irrigated region in the -world, stated  "that his company's operations in  eastern Canada, Great Britain and the  United .tales had been materially extended this season and. he.confidently  looked forward to an unprecedented  rush of people to llic C. P. R. irrigation block during the coming summer  and autumn. The company has been  materially hampered in its work iii the  United States owing to the undesirable  advertising western Canada; has received iu connection with fuel famines  and 'blizzard' stories. The press south  of the line made the most of every  item unfavorable to Canada that appeared in our local papers, which, after  being duly magnified, -were paraded  before the people of the United States.  The various land companies and railways interested ia .Texas and the  southwest are also conducting a vigorous campaign with a view to diverting  the stream of emmigration from Canada to the southern states.     *  "Mr. Peterson's company also has  local prejudices to overcome. The whole  subject of irrigation is imperfectly understood by the average resident of  western Canada. Very few people  grasp the full significance of the  gigantic undertaking which is now  being rapidly pushed ahead by the  Canadia Pacific Railway company east  of Calgary .under the able direction of  Mr.  J.   S.   Dennis,   assistant   to   the  o  second vice president of the C. P. R ,  who has devoted the best years of his  lif to the. cause of irrigation in western  Canada.  "The time is, however, coming when  the west will realize the fact that the  introduction of irrigation on a large  scale is the most important agricultural  development that Canada has ever  witnessed. By the time the Canadian  "Pacific^project^is���cotupletedj^siuiny^  Alberts, will rank as the foremost irrigation section of the American continent. That province will then contain  au area equal to oue-fourtli of the total  irrigated area of the whole of the  United Stales.  "Those unacquainted with irrigation  entertain the erroneus idea that this  system of agriculture can only be  profitably   practiced  in-southerly lati-  now are in areas ranging from 40 to 160  acres. Twenty acre farms will not be  uncommon. Owing to the -enormous  earning powers of irrigated lands,  farmers could make a good living off a  fraction of the area usually required on  the western farm; This system of  colonization will naturally lead to dense  settlement, which again will give rise  to high land values. Mr. Peterson has  no hesitation in predicting that within  a very few years the irrigated lands  east of Calgary will be the most valuable aod expensive lands in Canada.  The development of the oriental trade  will ensure markets for all cereal and  dairy products that the irrigation  blocks will produce at highly remunerative prices, and with the construction  of the Panama canal, the cost of  transportation from the irrigation block  to Great Britain will be vastly less  than via the eastern outlet. In fact,  Calgary will then be closer to the British market than points in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, taking into consideration the cost of transportato.n.  "The industrial development of the  irrigation block will proceed at a rapid  rate. Beet sugar factories, creameries  and all industries kindred to agriculture  will be plentifully represented and will  furnish local markets for the products  oi  .he irrigated lauds,"  Chamberlain's Cougli Remedy is Both  Agreeable and Effective.  .Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has  no superior for coughs, colds, aud  croup, and the fact that it is pleasant  to take and contains nothing in any  way injurious has made it a favorite  with mothers, Mr. W. S. Pelham, a  merchant of Kirksville, Iowa, says:  "For more than twenty years Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been my  leading Remedy for all throat troubles.  It is especially successful- in cases of  croup. Children like it ancl my customers who have used it will not take  any other."    For sa.eby ali druggists.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /." H.

As a mailer of fact,  the backbone and foundation of every  irrigation enterprise on the American  continent frcm the Gulf of Mexico to  the most northerly latitudes where  irrigation is practiced,0 is the .coding  aiid finishing of live stock. In the  .slate of Colurado, where the largest  area uf irrigated land is found out of a  total irrigated area of 1,500,000 acres,  only 35,000 acres arc devoted to fruit  growing, i-cventy live per cent of the  area i.s devoted to the production of  feed for live slock, principally alfalfa.  This stato of' affairs amply demonstrates that alfalfa more thau holds its  own against fruit as a profitable crop  under irrigation. Alfalfa can be raised  to perfection iu southern Alberta, and  it i.s, therefore, a logical conclusion,  that acre for acre, the irrigated lands  of Alberta are worth, every cent as  much as the irri_rated areas iu any  portion of the United Stales outside,  perhaps, of the watered lands devoted  to tropical fruits in the slate of California.  "The task the C. P. I. C. Co. has in  hand is one of magnificent proportions.  This company is the largest colonization  concern on the continent of America  and maintains a world wide organi;:a-  tion. Questioned as to the ultimate  result of the company's efforts in the  Calgary district, Mr. Peterson stated  that the expectation of the company was  that within the next ten or fifteen years  159,000 people would be colonized within  a distance of 100 miles east, of  the city.

And now New Brunswick is asking  for legislation that will enable the government to go into the telephone business.  According to a statement made by  F. W, Morse, vice president and general manager of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, that company will be  prepared to give Edmonton a train  service before the conclusion of 1907,  by the new tratiscoatinental line. It  is the intention of the railway to carry  out the original plans, which means  that they will make full use of their  agreement with the city, and enter by  the right of way purchased by the city.  The outlook for a large number of  immigrants this year is exceedingly  bright. The department of immigration officials aay that they expect about  300,000 immigran's this year. All the  accommodation in the steamers is taken  for some time to come.  The board of railway commissioners  made a ruling recently of the utmost  importance. The commissioners have  the right to determine both freight and  passenger rates, and in response to  protests from the prairie provinces and  from several bodies in Ontario and  Quebec, the board has made an order  reducing passenger rates to 3 cents a  mile. This applies to the entire system from Calgary to St. John covered  by the Canadian Pacific and the Grand  Trunk.  The Noya Scotia legislaturepropo.es  to vote $300,000 at this session of the  legislature to be expended this year in  conjunction with amounts to be con  tributcd by the counties on improving  a number of the leading, roads. The  work will b* carried out under competent supervisors and will continue,  with probably equally liberal, government grants, for several years.  The rumor that the Grand Trunk is  negotiating for the Canadian Northern  is again in circulation. It is staled  that Wm. Mackenzie was recently  offered somewhere in the neighborhood  of thirteen million for the property,  but he refused the figure. President  Mackenzie of the C. N. R., and C. M.  Hayes of the Grand Trunk, arc both  in England at present and it is stated  that the mattter has again been discussed.    Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president  of the Canadian Pacific railway, has  recently gave out a statement in regard  to the new lines that will be under construction this year by the Canadian  Pacific railway, and for which allowances have been made in the appropriations. This statement shows tliat  altogether the company has in hand  extensions amounting tp 958 miles of  new lines, while the double tracking  that is to be carried out comprises  another 535 miles, making altogether  nearly 1,500 miles, as compared with  1,000 miles under construction on the  Great Northern, 1,900 on the Grand  Trunk Pacific, and 1,500 on the Canadian Northern. The double tracking  includes 426.7 miles from Winnipeg to  Fort Williams, and 108 miles from St,  Anne's to Smith's Fallf.  News comes of a fatality which oc  curred at St. Simon, a small place  J_ etw.ee nX.ar.aqu.et_and__3_hipp.egan._.on:  Wednesday afternoon. During a heavy  gale the roof and upper portion of St.  John Comeau's residence was blown  down. The family had to leave the  house. Comeau took one child to the  nearest house, a quarter of a mile distant, and returning for the rest of his  family, got lost in the storm. He  reached the house the following morning in a very exhausted condition, and  found his wife and three children in  the snow frozen to death.  The Montreal Star says: "The  American Shipbuilding company is to  have competition in the form of a  Canadian plant to cost between SI,000,-  000 and $1,500,000. Chicagoans and  other capitalists identified with the  marine interests of the Great Lakes  are at the back of the project. The new  yards will be located at Fort William,  and if the plans carry, the works will  be ready for business in less than a  year. The promoters will invest 5500,-  000 as working capital, over and above  the cost of construction, thus making  the enterprise a two million dollar  proposition. The company probably  will be known as the Canadian-American Shipbuilding Corporation. Both  stocks and bonds will be issued, but  none will be offered for public" subscription."  THE ORE TRAIN  is said that another large company is  getting ready to develop on a large  scale. Arrangements have been made  for the erection of coal bunkers at  Spences Bridge, where the engines of  the Western .division will coal. This  will provide a large output for the  mines to start with. The valley is  feeling the good effect of railway  facilities even before the train service  is put on, and what is wanted in there  now is to see the C. P. R. built ou  down through Aspen Grove, and the  V., V. & 15. built i'p through Otter flat  and up the Coldwater to the mines.  This will give railway competition and  at the same time develop some very  rich timber, mineral and agricultural  territory.  Fairview���Henry Lee, who is connected with the Stemwinder mine, at  Fairview, B. C, was in Loomis last  week, endeavoring to secure miners.  He was not very successful, as there  are no idle miners in camp. We found  Mr. Lee a pleasant, intelligent gentleman and trust he may stray dow n  across the border frequently in the  future. He informed us that the Stem-  winder is showing up fine bodies of ore  that are being concentrated, and the  tailings treated by the cyanide process,  the property being fully equipped with  the necessary plants to treat the ore.  The experience of the Stemwinder is  an illustration of the uncertainties of  mining, and the reward that comes to  persistent effort, where indications  justify persistent effort. The Stem-  winder was worked years ago, but  suddenly the ore was lost. Work was  suspended and the property remained  idle for a long time. Then the company instituted a systematic search for  the lost ledges, and after the expenditure of 340,000 the ore was recovered.  A slip had taken place" in the formation, thus displacing the ore bodies.  Now the company has an immense ore  deposit in sight with a good prospect  of a richly paying mine. This same  phenomenon was noticeable in the old  Cariboo mine, at Camp McKinney,  directly east of Fairview, -where the  ledges would cut off every few hundred  feet, yet that mine, with a small stamp  mill, put Jim Monahan, who went  broke with thousands of others in the  nightmare days of the early '90s, on  his feet again, paying* thousands of  dollars to the owners. Slips are a contingency that may arise in any mine,  and should not discourage owners to  the extent of suspending operations.���  Loomts Prospector.  Rheumatic Pains Relieved.     ��  B.'F.
