Uus is not only detrimental td the  business interests of the community  Regarding the erection of thc P.roo-  vincial wharf at the lower, end ot  the city, Mr. Smith stated that this  in his opinion, was a mistake. ' Lt  was done by the Provincial government without any apparent reason.

The ore is improving as operations proceed. ���������  The ore in thc Retfua Savage was  first encountered at'a depth of 300  feet and was worked out to tlie  sideline of the Mabel W. claim of  the' Gold Dollar company -difiring.  rt was then sought hty crosscut  from the 400 foot level-with i.itis-  factory results, and machines ire  breaking the ore for shipment.

At present there are   seven  campafin-   operation and! the gradincr,  outfits    just now  are located    fifty  miles from  Battleford.     Messrs.   Foley'Bros. & Larson's camp at    Battleford Junction     has what is considered  the  best  construction  outfit  in Western Cam da.     They have   fifty teams to each camp, and also   a  grader which requires twelve pair of  horses     to    draw.     These graders  turn out no less than 1,500 yards.of '  soil per day,    which is reckoned   to  be splendid work.    Camp  1 employs?  about 58; the, other six camps average about 35  or 40 men each.      No  less than 200 teams are.employed altogether.     It is  confidently   expected ; that camp  1 will reach the   Vermilion sand hills  about the last   of  October.     After that the whole ten  camps will congregate at Vermilion  sand pits as winter headquarters..    , ttn  4.

Ticket Oflice died yesterday  afternoon as the result of the terri  ble injuries received ou Thursday last  in the kitchin of the family home,  Newcastle Townsitc, where her clothing',' in some unaccountable j manner caught fire from the stove and  inflicted such terrible "burns as to  necessitate her removal to the hospital, where after a brave struggle  for life, death, oventually came and  relieved the unfortunate lady" from  her terrible sufferings.  Tlie sudden death of Mrs. McG-lrr,  whom every one thought was recovering from her terrible injuries,  comes as a great shock to ��������� the  large circle of friends, who held' her  in the highest esteem and affection.  It is needless to say that the ^heartfelt sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved  liusband and family in their great  loss.'  The deceased, whoso maiden name  was Jean Armstrong, was 32 years  of age, a native of St. Mary, Ontario, and was married about 12  years ago in this city to Mi*.

She also loaves to mourn  her .loss, a molber, Mrs. Geo'.
