Fifth Year-No. 30
Grand Forks, B. L, Tuesday, February 13,
Issued Twice a Week
New York Capitalists Secure
Bond on Newby Claims
for $90,000
interview With Geo. MacLeod,
Who   Negotiated the
Transfer
Last Friday evening the necessary papers were drawn in a
mining deal of considerable magnitude. Geo. A. MacLeod, acting on
behalf of New York capitalists, concluded negotiations for tbe group of
claims known as the Ophir, the
Gloucester, the G. H. and the G. H.
Fraction, Bituated between Gloucester and Franklin creeks, 46 miles
north ofthis city. The bond is for
$90,000, and for a period of two
yenrs; $3000 will be paid over on
the 1st of May, and oft November
1st 10 per cent of tbe purchase
money will be banded over, and the
balance will be paid in three equal
installments at periods of six months.
The properties are owned, by Thos.
Newby, Lee Mercer and Howard
Garnett, the last named owner coming up from Spokane to take part in
tbe final aarangements of the transfer.
"Since I first saw the claims, some
two years ago," said Mr. MacLeod
to a Sun reporter last night, "1 have
attempted to secure a bond on them,
as I consider the (bowing on
the G. 11. claim to be the finest
surface exposure of ore in this district. This outcrop is traceable for
over 2000 feet in length, wd is over
70 feet wide. It consists of ore of
between 60 and 70 per cent of magnetic iron, and in placet carries 2
per cent copper. Absolutely nothing
has been done on this ledge.
"On the Gloucester a 80-foot shaft
is Bunk on a promising copper
ledge. The bottom of the shaft is
in chalcopyrite ore, assaying 13 per
cent copper and 84.50 in gold and
silver. A depth of 1500 feet can be
obtained by a short tunnel from
Gloucester creek.
"The  Kettlo Valley line survey
skirts   the  claims  at  the   base of
1 Gloucester mountain.
"With three big properties—thc
McKinley, the Pathfinder, and the
Gloucester—working in the North
Fork district this year, and railway
cross-sectioning now in progress, I
consider the future to be full of
promise."
Thc present owners will carry on
work on the claims at tho expense
of the bondholders to May 1st. According to the terms of the bond,
not less than six men must be continuously employed in development.
A Bilious Headache

world. To prevent biliousness u-e

Have You Heartburn?
It's quite common with people
whose digestion is poor. Immediate
relief follows the use of Nerviline.

made perfect, lasting euro results in
every case. Use Poison's Nerviline
once and you'll never be without it,
because every form of stomach disorder is conquered by a few doses.
One 25c bottle of Nerviline always
convinres. Soltl everywhere for the
post fifty years.

Forks, and J. J. Campbell, Nelson.
Their attitude is not one of active
opposition to the bill, but to suggest tlmt in yiow of tho amicabl
agreement recently arrived at between the management nut) the men
as to hours of labor in smelters, tbe
introduction of tbe bill at this time
is uncalled for. They express a de-

How to Get Consumption
Ninety per cent of the "lungers"
contract consumption by allowing
power of resistance to fall so low thut

healthy system consumption can't take
root. But where' there is weakness
and debility, tliere you find tuberculosis. For developing strength anil
building up the weak, nothing equals
Ferrozone. It makes the blood nutritious and the narves enduring. The
way it converts food into nutriment,
the appetite it gives is surprising,
.lust what the man verging on consumption needs—that's Ferrozone. If
tired end weak don't put off. Fifty
cents buys a box of fifty tablets—at
all dealers.

That more than.a million infants
have been sacrificed to the various concoctions known as soothing syrups
and pain killers, and over twice that
number killed by impure milk, is the
declaration made by Prof. H. W.
Wiley, chief of the chemistry bureau
of the United States department of
agriculture. "We do not know anything about the milk we have left at
our homes, or the conditions under
which it was produced," he says.
"There are a thousand and one possibilities which might have combined to
make what nature intended for a food
the most virile paison that chemistry
ean produce. I have found that the
foods we daily consume are so fraught
with genu life of a harmful nature
that I am almost afraid to go to the
table. The butter is painted; there is
little other to be found anywhere.
Canned goods are kept years and sold
for the gt-iitiinu article. I speak particularly of condensed milk. If we
know nothing of the fresh milk we
get, surely our knowledge is more
limited as to the product that is put

resort to cans only to title us over one
season; until green fruits could lie hud
again, but the canneries don't know
this. There is no law requiring lliein
to stamp the dute upon their goods; if
they did it would kill the sale.''

A man in Georgia has written a
book on "How to Go to Hades.,: The
report that it has met with a poor sale
is easy to explain—most people kbow
the road to that place already.
The statesman who can bring about
the condition of a higher price for cattle on the htfof aud a lower price in

It is vanity that makes a woman
wear a bustle, but it is self-protection
that makes a book agent wear a pair
of trousers with a padded seat.
Politics has been the making of
many a good man, but it has never
made a woman famous. It takes her
too long to find her pocketbook.
The politician is just as eager to
warmly shake your hand the day before election as he is to give you the
cold shake the day after.
Many a man does not care what a
tailorcharges for a suit of clothes—just
so he charges it.
The United States mint.is the only
business that makes money without

The reason it is called a "stag'
party is because the men in it generally stagger home.

A Good ffatured Wife.
An English rustic whose wife wat
blessed with a remarkably even temper went over the war to a neighbor
one evening nnd said:
"Neighbor, I just should like to see
my wife cross for once. I've tried all
I know, and I can't make her cross no
way."
"You can't make your wife cross?"
said lils neighbor. "I wish I could make
mine anything else. But you just do
what I tell you, and If that won't
act nothing will. You bring her In
some night a lot of the crookedest
sticks for the Are you can get—them as
won't He In no form—and Bee how she
makes out then."
The pieces of wood were accordingly
brought In, as awkward and crooked
and contrary as could be found. Tho
man went away early to work and at
noon returned to see the result of his
experiment.
He was greeted with a smiling face
and the gentle request:
"Tom, do bring me In some more of
those crooked sticks if you can Uud
them. They do just fit around tho kettle so nicely!"
