TWICE-A-WEEK
Strike of Free Gold
The Iron Chief May Rival the-Famous
Poplar Properties.
Old Mining Men Pronounce Samples of the Sensational Find
the Richest They Have Ever Seen—Mining   .
News of the District.
A sensational strike of free gold
has been made on the Iron Chief
Fraction, on Hardy mountain. The
property is owned by C. K. Simpson,
of this city, and predictions are being made that it will yet rival tbe
best Poplar Creek properties ag a free
gold proposition.
Mr. Simpson and a partner have
heen doing development work on the
property for the past three months,
and last week they encountered a
ledge freely spinkled with gold. At
first they threw the rock to one side,
as they did not recognize at a glance
that it contained the yellow metal,
but oh second examination they
found it to be the pure and unadulterated goods. The strike waa made
at a depth of sixty feet, and a couple
of days ago some other samples
were extracted, the likes of which
have not been seen ip this part of
the country up to the yresent time.
Old miners say it is tho richest
ore they have seen, and if the ledge
proves, ou further development, to
be a large one, the find will be the
biggest thing in the Boundary.
From time to time small pieces
of ore carrying free gold have been
found on this mountain, but a ledge
has never bejn discovered until the
one encountered on the Iron Chief
Fraction.
Geo. Wolf returned to the city yesterday morning from Summit camp,
where he has been at work on the
Senator claim. He says it is looking
fine, and two teams are kept busy
hauling ore to the Bathmullen spur,
whence it is loaded on the cars for
shipment to the Granby smelter.
, *    *   *   ,
At the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter
the work of carrying on the improvements is steadily making progress.
The steel frame for the new converter bluilding is up, and a second ore
crusher has been ordered.
* *   *
The Giant mine, Rossland, is shipping to the Granby smelter.
* *   *
It is reported that the Greyhound,
in Deadwood camp, has I ee i sold.
* *   *
Spokane parties have taken abend
on the Combination claim, in the
high grade belt near Greenwood, and
close to the successful Elkhorn. It is
an old claim from which shipments
were made in the early days of the
Boundary.
* *   *
Last week thc Elkhorn shipped a
car of high grade ore, and the E. P.
U. mine did the same. The latter
is also sending out another car this
week.
UNCLE JOE IS FIFTY
He Celebrates His Half-Century Annivir-
sary by Giving a Dinner to a Few
of His Friends.
Uncle Joe Thatcher, of the "The
Club," reached the half-century post
in his earthly career last Wednesday,
and celebrated tho event by giving a dinner to a few of his friends
at the Hotel Winnipeg in the evening. The guests present wore Dr. J.
A. Armstrong of Nelson, Frank Sherwood of Danville, L. A. Manly, Dr.
Kingston, W. E. McDaniel, M. K.
Feeney, Lord Arthur Ruinoy, W. B.
Cochrane, Ernest Miller and The
Sun man. The banquet table was
illuminated by fifty candles, emblematic of the host's age. Between
the courses Uncle Joe gave a graphic
history of his life up to the present
time, concluding by saying that
he had become a citizen of Grand
Forks and intended to grow oul with
the city. Lord Arthur Raincy, in
moving a vote of thanks for the
host's hospitality, stated that he
hoped Uncle Joe would live to celebrate {fifty moro anniversaries, in
which wish he was heartily joined by
the other guests. After a few witty
stories the company retired, and
the half-century birthday dinner of
Uncle had passed into history. The
dinner was one of the best served in
this city in recent years, and Bpcaks
very highly for the Hotel Winnipeg
under present management and the
art of the chef.
An interesting law suit, in which

company of Toronto are the defendants, will shortly come up in the

The case has arisen out of the sale of

built by one A. B. Jones, who obtained a mortgago from the Colonial
Loan and Investment company, and
later disposed of the building to a
man by the namo of Dickson, who
now sues them for full particulars
of the loan and asks the t'ourt for an
injunction restraining thc loan company from disposing of thc property.
The writ was served on them nrior
to tho sale of the hotel, but no injunction was issued.

The special iBsue of the Phoenix
Pioneer, consisting of 58 pages and
a handsome cover, has reached The
Sun, and we have no hesitation in
saying that it is the best publication

with which the paper is copiously
illustrated, arc very good, one in
particulary, a lull-page cut of thc
Granby smelter in this city, being of
exceptional merit. The write-ups
ofthe mineral resources ofthe entire
Boundary district are well told.
The paper reflects great credit on its
enterprising publisher.

WHY GO EAST
Over the nun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, coo)
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
th? Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line ofthe World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist Bleopers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after thc
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can 'be found
than is provided by these excursions.

If Z Die Shall I Live Again?
"No, and I Don't Want To," answere
Frederic Harrison.
Aroused by Mr. liver's remarkable
book on tho survival of human personality after death, the PositlvitU or freethinkers of England are giving vent to
their ridicule and contempt, and the chief
of them, tho eminent critic, Frederic Harrison, in the "Nineteenth Century" give*
a brilliant description of his dream of
the future life. He tells how ho
dreamed, and having cast aside his mortal body, passed into the Infinite, where,
tn his dream, he seemed to revel tn tho
tornadoes of astral volcanoes, and to
find rest tn toy -regions where the very
ether had frozen into a liquid:—
"One seemed? who seemedT who felt!
who saw? who passed? What, or who,
wns I! Individuality, personality, subjectivity, bad slipped off as easily as the
dried husk they, were now laying out
for burial. How childish, how brutish,
how selfish did It seem now to conceive
of any met There was an end of Me,
with Its outlook of blind kitten or
wriggling earth-worm. Should it bo
rather We—was I now a Gas, a Force,
an Emanation! Should it be rather
They?—was I an indefinite unit of a
limitless Power extended in Space, and
contemporaneous with all time? The
pettiness, the feebleness, the squalor of
the sense of being Me was too evident.
A more glorious We took the place of
Me: and We in turn became They; and
They in a flash became All.
"What a miserable insect should I
have been In this Immeasurable Universe if, by miracle hardly conceivable
of Omnipotence, the Individual lie had
survived! Personality was all very well
in the muddy speck men call F,;irth;
dust to dust, ashes to ashrs. But In
the blaze of an Infinite Uffiverse, scintillating in its every atom with unquenchable light, throbbing not with
momentary sensations, but with ide.M.
ideas intercommunion b!e from one point
in the boundless All to every othor
point, without need of language, and
without effort, act, or delay—to drag
up Into this Immensity the soiled rag-*
of 'human personality'—-'twould be better to be the parasite of the anopheles
gnat, spreading death and disease In its
Bfission for blood. When the entire
Iniverse is continuously and eternally
apparent as a whole; when all its infinite and interminable ideas are simultaneously cognizable throughout its limitless field; when Motion Is extinct, hy
reason tbat everything Is everywhere,
and Sound is bwallowed up In one endless circumambient Harmony, then, as
-mredly, there is no place lett for Sight,
Hearing, Speech or Thought. The
wretched makeshifts of human sensation are as meaningless and sterile as
the eyes of a mole. In this new world
the craving for Personality is seen to be
a sordid lust of the flesh.
"The    transition    from    the    dusty,
■•ribbed and fetid prison of the Body to
the radiant Imnlensity of tbe Universe,
wherein all the uses of bodily sense, and
•11 the notions of terrestrial mind are
neaningless and void, was a change so
udden and tremendous that It could not
■ecome familiar at tlrst.    Remnants of
deas and instincts belonging to the oh'
vorld of sense still lingered in the new

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

THE TORONTO
DAILY NEWS
AND IKE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of thc newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given thnt paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News nt the price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lend the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
tnken hold of the people, so; wc venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon tho intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club tho Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presenta many unique features
—our scmi-woekly giving you all
tho homo and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over thc world.

News, or if you would like to see

The Symphony.
Carry me home to the pine-woods
Give me to rest by the sea:
Leave me atone with the lulling: tone
Of the south wind's phantasy.
For I am weary of discord.
Sick of the clash of this strife.
Sick of the bane of this prelude of pain,
And I yearn for the Symphony—Life.

A Swimming-School for Horse*.
Hones are "enlisted" in British cavalry regiments ou reaching their third
year, but It is generally two years more
before they are token for their first
swimming lesson. Tills branch of their
education receives a good deal of attention tt the Aldershot training camp,
writes W. O. Fitzgerald in the "Royal
Magazine." The veterinary officer and
riding-master of the regiment supervise
the work, and only experienced men are
allowed to assist.
The great thing is not to force or
alarm the horse during his training, but
rather to lead him by easy stages to enter the water quickly, fearlessly and ns
noiselessly as possible. If terrified at
the start, the horse would be likely to
fight shy of deep water ever after. 80
on the first day the man who has charge
of the horse walks his pupil about on
the edge of the water, just permitting
him to wet his hoofs and fetlocks. The
next day the horse is introduced a little
farther into the water, perhaps up to his
body, and allowed to siilnsh round as he
pleases. In this way the horse is gradually taken farther and farther In, until
at length he loses his footing and starts
swimming quite naturally, the man In
charge swimming by his side to give him
greater confidence.
Then the horse Is taught to swim in
company with others, beside a boat, by
way of training him to cross rivers with
his regiment en masse. The horses arc
divested of all saddlery but head collar*
and head ropes.   The men of each troo|-
Set Into a boat, and by means of the
ead ropes bring their horses Into thi
water alongside. Then the boat is hauled
across the river by a rope manned from
the opposite side, and the horses neces
sarily follow.
At times the horses are exercised in
bearing their riders across on theii
backs. The horse wears only the bead
.'ollar and brldoon, and the rider strip-
limself, and throws his legs up along
'lie horse's flanks so as not to imped"
the animal's movements. As the bor«
laturally swims very low In the water,
'he rider's weight pushes him down un
til only his head is above the surface
■tut the animal soon gets over the uneasi
less this causes him at first. Then the
torse's tuition is complete, and he Is
'leased in his regiment as "proficient.''
He bas, In fact, passed his ''exam" a)
nuoh u any cadet at Sandhurst.

"Pruwh'i" Interriew with H. C. Wells.
Some member ol "Punch," with a torn
for genial fooling, writes a "Sketchy In
tervlew" with H. O. Wells, the pseudo
•clentlflo writer, In which he says:
"On our pressing the electric button
ihe door was opened by a well-trained
Mertfen, who, in answer to our question,
looted politely tbat Mr. Wells was oui
■ii his aeroplane, superintending the tlv
ng drill of the Sandiate Highlander!..
ind was for the time being an invisible
man, bnt that he was expected in any
moment. While he was speaking a whin
ing noise was heard overhead, and Mr
Wells swooped to earth. Divesting him
-elf ol his celluloid cloak, studded witl.
iilasmon buttons, Mr. Wells, on demanding end receiving our assurance that *v<
belonged to the middle classes, ushered
us Into his sanctum. We experienced
considerable difficulty In keening oui
feet, owing to the curvature of the floor
—Mr. Wells adopts this system to prevent'the collection of dust—but.finally
succeeded in anchoring ourselves to a
-clenite paperweight, while our host settled himself comfortably in the cushioned seats of his time machine and be
i;au to talk."
