A
Prospectors in the Hills Can
Easily Tell the Nature of
Minerals
By Means of an Inexpensive
and Quite Portable
Outfit
The simple testa described in the
following article are intended for prospectors out in the hills who wish
merely to know if any metal or metals
may be found in a sample of ore. The
article was written specially for The
Sun by Mr. E. H. Vaughan.a practical
assayer, who has also had considerable experience as a prospector, and
furnishes systematic methods for the
detection of the. common metals of
commercial value.
The necessary outfit is inexpensive,
occupies but a small space, and is of
little weight.    It consists of :
A cheap form of blowpipe.
An alcohol lamp. (A substitnte
may be made from a small square ink
bottle with a wide mouth, fitted w.t!
a cork bored to carry the round metal
part of a penhold, through which is
,„ run the wick.)
Three or four blocks prepared alder-
wood charcoal.
Six inches platinum wire.
About a dozen pieces glass tubing,
6 inches long and 3-16 inch in diame
ter.
One pair forceps (tweezers), preferably platinum tipped. (Iron will do,
hut not brass.)
A small magnet.
A small agate moi'tor and pestle.
(At a pinch this can be done without.)
Carhonate of soda, 2 ozs.
Horax, 1 oz.
A little nitric acid and sulphuric
acid in small good glass-stoppered perfume bottles is useful:
A little of a strong solution of cobalt nitrate—solution  10%  strength.
Three test tubes and three porcelain cupolas (small) will also be extremely useful.
All these things will cost but little,
and can be purchased from any assizers' supply house or good chemist.
A sample of ore is secured and an
examination is mude. by observing
streak, fracture, and cleavage, and
also its hardness,uiuoli may be learned
frnm this. To test further, portions
of the mineral is taken and crushed
very Hue. SSy mineral is meant the
portion of the ore that common sense
would suggest as carrying the metal
oi metals, and iliil'ers materially from
the gangue of the rock.
Some ore carries different kinds of
mineral, such as zinc blend (blaek-
(juuk), and iron aud copper pyrite, and
perhaps galena. Or, again, lead oar*
lionnto and Clllcite may occur together,
and although , both ure whitish, they
will differ in appearance. Each different variety should be examined
N> m-pi r itely. The sample may be unit.
sim* mid all mineralized, iu this case
there is no choice, .lust a portion is
taken and tested.
To produce the blowpipe llainei
(oxidizing and reducing) requires
lliuch practice, for the Hame must bo
continuous und long sustained. To
produce the Hame the mouth is filled
with air and quite gently expelled
into the pipe; hut before the supply i.s
half exhausted, ami while still blowing, another supply is taken in through
the nose. There will be no difficulty
in this, if the unconscious effort ti
close the lips and raise tho tongue to
the roof of the mouth be avoided. The
tip of the blowpipe is placed just into
the Hume, and close to the wick,
for the oxidizing Hame, and further
into the Hame for the reducing flame,
The oxidizing flame is tho whitish,
faintly luminous one seen at the tip of
the flame.
The reducing flame is the blue inner
one.
The first gives out oxygen to a sub-
.-titnce, it being charged with air.
The latter deprives a substance of
its oxygen and reduces- it to metal.
The inner or reducing Hume consists
of highly heated gases and minute un-
consumed particles of carbon, but in
the oxidizing flame all these conditions are altered.
It is important that one should be
able to control these two flames at
will. To know by actual experiment
the oxidizing llaine from the redncina
flame, to a bend of carbonate of soda
udd a little of any manganese salt,
oxide for preference, in tiie oxidizing
flame. This is bluish green, but iu
the reducing Hame itis colorless. The
alcohol lamp scarcely gives enough
heat for the reduction of oxides upon
charcoal to metal. For this purpose
use u rather broad lamp wick—one
inch—partially immersed in paraffin
wax or ordinary tallow. A small
sized tobacco tin will do—a tallow-
dip, in fact.
Take a portion of powdered mineral
und place it upon •i small, shallow hole
in the charcoal. Heat at first gently,
and finally strongly, in the oxidizing
flume. The coal is held in the left
hand und the blowpipe in the right.
The substunce is on the lower part of
the enti of the coul, so thut the flume
sweeps gently up the coal, and gives
coats or incrustations on the cooler
portion of the coal. If the substunce
is a sulphide, this roasting drives off
most of the sulphur. Break up the
clot and turn up fresh portions to the
flame, so that oxidization may be thorough. Now, if the substance is light
colored, it may be zinc, lime, etrontia,
barium, etc. If zinc, it will bo yellow
while hot and white upon cooling, and
glow very strongly. Cool and add
two or three drops of cobalt nitrate
solution und heat again strongly in
oxidizing flame.
Zinc gives a green color.
Magnesia gives a pink or tlesli color.
Alumina gives a blue color.
If the substance is black or dark
colored, test by borax bead nr on char-
ejal with soda. In either ease, however, suve a portion of the roasted
substunce. Take another small portion and mix with three times as much
carbonate soda und upon the hollows
in the eoal, and cover with a little
more soda. Heat gently at first to
fuse the sodu, und finally -strongly
with the reducing flume. Metal beads,
spangles, or metallic powder is produced, und coats or incrustations
giveh upon the cooler part of the coal.
This is important and should be
carefully noted:
Lead gives white malluble beads,
which mark paper.
Silver gives white mailable beads,
soluble in warm nitric acid; gives a
white curdy proportion on adding u
very little common suit.
Tin, white mulluble bead, not solu
ble, but gives white powder in nitric
ucid; powder not soluble in tartaric
acid or cream of tartar.
Bismuth, white brittle bead, soluble iu nitric ucid.
Antimony, brittle white beud;
powder white in nitric acid, same as
tin, but soluble on adding tartaric
ucid or creiim of turtur.
Copper, red spangles or flecks of
metallic copper; -soluble in nitric acid.
Iron, nickel and cobalt give black
metallic powder attracted by magnet.
The bends are easily seen. In case
of doubt, however, detach the fused
portion and rub up in ugutc niorlor
with u little water and decant cure-
fully, and repeat this a few times.
Soda uud sodium silicates ure soluble,
and the metallic portions ure left.
Dry and examine as above.
To test with acids, place beud or
spangles or powder in test tube and
pour on about three-fourths of un inch
of nitric acid. Hold the test tube by
neck iu a fold of paper, over an alcohol lump, and heat until solution.
When red fumes cease coming off
dilute with one and one-hulf inches of
water, und split into two portions.
To the clear portion add a small j
pinch of salt; if curdy proportion, it is j
ilver. Allow it to settle. Decant |
the clear portion and add a few drops j
of sulphuric acid. If white proper-
tion again comes down, it is lead.

BADLY SCORCHED
Morrison Block Damaged by
fire and Water to Lx*
tent of $2000
Mcintosh &   Heron's Stock,
Ininsured, Badly Soaked
by Water
Shortly after noon on Wednesbny
dense volumes of smoke were discovered issuing irom tbe Morrison
block, on First street, and an .ahum
of fire was immediately sent in.
The department responded promptly, and for three hours the members
worked stubbornly and heroically to
save the building, which they finally succeeded ill doing, notwithstanding the fact that the Hames had
gained considerable headway in the
interior of the block when they arrived on the scene.
The origin of the fire was caused
by an attempt to thaw out some
water pipes under the building, and
tbe flames got between the plastering and the siding of the walls, making it extremely difficult to fight
the fire.
The building was owned by N. D.
Mcintosh, and the first floor was occupied by Mclntosb & Heron's furniture store, while on the second
floor David Whiteside, barrister, had
his nilices. The Orange lodge room
and a number of sleeping apartments, occupied hy Mr. Mcintosh,
the Waugh brothers and others,
were also located on this floor. The
eflects of tbe roomers and the lodge
paraphernalia were uninsured and
are a total loss. Mr. Whiteside
managed to save his law library, but
the damage to his oflice furniture,
which was uninsured, will amount
to a considerable sum.
The damage to the building is estimated at fully $-2000, most of it
being cau;ed by water and the chopping away of floors and walls by the
firemen in an endeavor to get at the
flames. The British American Trust
company carried $2UU0 insurance
on the building.
The large furniture and hardware
stock of .Mcintosh & Heron was
totally uninsured, but as the greater
portion of the goods were removed,
and as the lire did not rencli those
left in the building, the damage will
consist principally of water. None
of the goods were entirely destroyed.
Neither Mr. Mcintosh nor Mr.
Heron will be able to give an estimate of their loss until they have
made a thorough examination of
the condition of thc goods.
Thc Hindus as reported to have
done good work in assisting to save
the goods.
Mrs. Kraus' rooming house, in
the adjoining block, was also slightly damaged by water, and the post-
oflice received a partial drenching.
stood in the storm waiting for their
innn to cine along Second Soiiib
streel. He tailed to show up, and
at midnight the ollicers went home,
tired, wel and numb with cold.
They were back on wesl Second
Smith yesterday innming, nnd al
noon Baw their man. Mr. Smyth
approached the fellow quietly nnd
asked hiin if he wus looking fur
work. 'I nni,' snid the Italian, un
suspectiugly. 'Well,' I have some
trench work to be done, and if we can
come to terms you are just the man
I want,' said the officer. Continuing to discuss work, times and similar topics, Mr. Smyth steered the
Italian east off Second South
from the Greek section, and when
the county jail was reached they
turned in. 'This is the place,' said
Smyth. 'The work is in the rear,
but you had better come m and be
registered and nut on the payroll in
the regular way. This is tny partner,' he added, as Officer Devitt approached. The three men turned
into the county jail and entered by
a side door. The door was clicked
behind Cedio. Something then
seemed to tell the wiley Italian he
had walked into a trap. His eyes
narrowed and glanced around quickly. He had been pushed into a
chair by Officer Devitt and as he
heard Smyth saying, 'You are under arrest for destroying a hotel and
the murder of a girl—etc.,' and his
nerve seemed to give away."

Wednesday night. When discovered
it was found that the lighted lamp
attachment had been tampered with,
causing the lamp to descend and explode and entirely burn up the
semaphore. An investigation is
pending.

A10-STAMP MILL
Is to Be   Installed   at   the
Little Bertha Mine, Near
the City
New Owners Expect to Have
Plant in Operation by
July 1st
As lecently stated in these columns, a controlling interest in the
stock of the Little Bertha Oold Mining company has been purchased by
Dr. W. H. Appleton, Donald McLean and John F. Wikstrom, of
Spokane, for a consideration of about
*$;'(), 000. The company's property
is located a short distance north of
this city. A few days ago, in speaking of the purchase, Dr. Appleton
stated to the Spokane Chronicle:
"We believe we bave made the
best investment which has fallen to
the lot of Spokane men in many a
day. We have demonstrated,
through the investigation of Engineer John F. Wikstrom, that there
are eight leads on the ground of the
Little Bertha. The property consists
of 120 acres on the North Fork of
the Kettle river.
"Engineer Wikstrom and I are
leaving for Grand Forks, where we
expect to lay out a mill site and
make arrangements for installing a
compressor on the Bertha property.
We have made arrangements to have
the compressor installed on or before March 1. We have purchased
a 10-stamp Nissou mill, which will
be operated on or before July 1.
"The values in the ore of the Little Bertha run unusually high.
Scores of assays made recently show
that the ore goes from *?.'() to -S200
per ton. A recent shipment of 500
tons sent to the smelter gave returns of $5i> per ton. We expect to
make regular shipments after July
1st. Since purchasing the controlling interest in the property we have
received several flattering offers for
thc stock, but we are satisfied we
have a good thing, and intend to
operate the mine ourselves."
The Snowshoe mine, in I'hoenix
camp, operated by the Consolidated
Mining <fc Smelting company, has
just sent out its first shipment of
copper oro since the closing of the
property last November. It was a
special shipment only, and consisted of 100 tuns, which was wanted at
the Trail smeller for the purpose
of bedding down a new blast furnace which will shortly he blown in.
When in full operation the Snow-
shoe ships a little inure than one-
third of ils output lo Trail, the balance going under contract to tho
British Columbia Copper company's
smelter at Greenwood.

RANDOM REMARKS
In spite of the numerous beautifying preparations on the market, there
are still a few homely people in Grand
Forks.
We have noticed that the people
who live comfortably in a small town
do not wear the worried look of people
who claim that a city is the only place
to live.
By the way, did uny family ever
accumulate so many babies that tho
last arrival was not considered the best
of the lot?
certain   that   the Canadian Pacific I promised a  splendid evening's  en-
Railway con.pany intends to expend joyment.    The proceeds go ip  aid
a large sum of money on improvements in this city during the coming summer. These improvements
embrace the removal of the Eholt
shops to this city, and their subsequent enlargement; the ereetion of
additional buildings; construction of
more yard trackage, and the establishment of a regular divisional point
here. The Sun is in a position to
state that the plans for these improvements have been completed for
some time, and a start on the work
would have been made last fall had
not the financial panic swept over
the country, causing a total
suspension of the mining industry.
Now, that the money market is again
in a normal condition, it would surprise no one if an early start was
made on this work.
As was pointed out by The Sun
at the beginning of tbe prestnt year,
Grand Forks is more fortunately
Bitnated than the majority of cities
in this section, aud is destined to
become the most important commercial and industrial centre in south
em British Columbia. The carrying
out of the above improvements will
undoubtedly hasten the consummation of this prediction.
There are numerous substantial
reasons for prophesying a roseate
future for our city, the foremost one
being that we possess a diversity of
industries, consisting of mining,
smelting, manufacturing, fruit growing and ranching. All of these
industries are well advanced here.
Tliere is also a promise of renewed
construction of the Kettle Vulley
line to Franklin camp, which should
add materially to our prosperity.
The vast areas of line agricultural
lands tributary to the city will, when
they are subdivided and brought under cultivation, become our greatest
source of unfailing prosperity. Ill
this connection, there is a stretch of
fifty miles of good fruit and agricultural land up the North Fork valley,
with no other outlet than this city.
This is seldom counted us one of our
assets. Time will prove that it is
destined to lie one of our greatest
sources of revenue,
The large amount of American
capital recently invested iu the Little Bertha and Maple Leaf mines
will undoubtedly direct renewed attention to the North Fork milling
properties, and, with the completion
ol transportation facilities, a rush to
the up-river camps muy be linked
foi.
Another source of wealth is the
large areas of splendid timber limits
on the Nortli l'ork. This must ull
be mcnufacuircd into lumber at or
near this city. The limits are of
sufficient ixlent io keep the mills
running for years.
In conclusion, it may be said,
in all sincerity, that the future prus-
peets of the city were never brighter,
A united effort on the part of all our
citizens should witness, before many
ycirs elapse, the praiseworthy oo-
'cct whioh brought the 2U,0U0 club
into existence an accomplished fuct.

To the other portion seo if white
powder is present. Decant clear portion; add ammonia, and if cupper is
present the solution is blue. Iron
will be thrown down as red tlocculent
proportion, but quickly settles and
leaves a clear blue solution.
Test the white powder by adding
one-half inch of nitric ucid and heat
the same. If it does mit dissolve, add
a little water and a good heavy pinch
of cream of tartar, and boil again. If
it dissolves, it is antimony; if not,
piobably it is tin.
Take a fresli portion on charcoal
and add soda as before (better to add
potassium cyanide if you have it), and
heat in reducing Hame very strongly.
Test bead only by hammering and by
nitric acid and tartaric ucid or cream
of tartar as before. Tliere is un incrustation or coat upon the coal. This
consists of the oxide which is produced by volatilization of the metul
and its oxidation while passing
through the outer llaine. A white
incrustation denotes arsenic antimony
or zinc. That for antimony or tin is
easily seen. The antimony coat and
test piece fumes plentifully. The zinc
coat is faint, however, aud it turns
green if moistened with cobalt nitrate
und again heated in the reducing
Hame. A dark yellow incrustation
while hot, and pale yellow when cold,
is lead or bismuth. A chocolate
brown incrustation is cadmium.
Now we conlirm by the borax bead:
i A piece of platinum wire is fused
into a piece of glass tubing—about
three inches of each.
A small round loop—O—is made in
one end. This is moistened and
dipped into borax.
Heat in flame of alcohol lamp with
blowpipe until fusion is effected.
A small minute portion of the substance, previously roasteH in charcoal,
is picked up on the hot borax loop
and heated, firstly in the oxidizing
flame, and then in the reducing flame.
The change of colors is noted:
Cobalt gives a de-ip blue bead in
both flames.
Nickel is sherry colored in the oxidizing flame, with a grey and turbid
formation of metallic particles.
Copper is blue in the oxidizing flame
while hot, green cold, red to opaque
when wholly or partially in the reducing flame.
Iron is yellow when hot and darker
yellow when cold in the oxidizing
Same; dingy olive or bottle green in
the reducing flame.
Manganese is amethyst in the oxidizing flame, both hot and cold; color
less or nearly -so in the redncing
flame.
Chromium is ?reen in all flames.
These are all th I metals that ean be
definitely recognized:
When the mineral contains two or
more reducible metals, the bends pro
duced will partake of the properties
of both. There muy be arsenic and
antimony with lead. In this case the
beud will be brittle. The bead muy
be tested with nitric acid us before.
The tube test with and without
soda will bettuy the Ar. and Sb., und
the yellow coat indicates Pbs.
A portion of the substance, if taken
on the tip of a platinum wire muikt-
eued with hydrochloric ucid and heated in the flame of an alcohol lamp,
alone gives characteristic colors to the
flame.
Sodium gives vivid yello'V.
Potassium gives violet.

Arsenic and antimony cun be confirmed in the gluss tube.
Heut a portion pluecd inside a tube
open at- both ends. Use oxidizing
(lame, and heat tube near where the
substance lies. Antimony gives dense
white non-volatile sublimate. Arsenic give white sublimate; on heating strongly changes to red (suboxide).
Closed tube tests are very useful
also, with or without addition of soda.
Arsenic antl antimony yield sublimates, black or mirror-like, but only
when strongly heated.
If any ore containing quicksilver is
heated in a closed tube, and a gold
coin is held over it, it will be silvered
if only a trace is present.
A garlic odor indicates arsenic.
Cpper gives green.
Borax (as boric anhydride), B2 03 ,
the principal.constituent of borax and
other borates, may be distinguished by
this means. It gives u green flame,
tuo. Mix with strong sulphuric acid

Many of Our Citizens Speak
Well of the Home Prescription
Mix the following by shaking well
in a bottle, and take in teaspoonful
doses after meals and at bedtime:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
ounces. A local druggist is the authority that these simple harmless ingredients can be obtained at nominal
cost from our home druggists.
The mixture is said to cleanse  and
strengthen the clogged and inactive
kidneys, overcoming backache, bladder weakness and urinary trouble of
all kinds, if taken before the stage of
Bright's disease.
Those who have tried this say it positively overcomes pain in the back,
clears the urine of sediment and regulates urination, especially at night,
curing even the worst forms of bladder
weakness.
Every man or woman here who feels
that the kidneys are not strong or acting in a healthy manner should mix
this prescription at home and give it
a trial, as it is said to do wonders for
many persons.
The Scranton, Pa., Times was first
to print this remarkable prescription,
in October, of 1906, since when all the
leading newspapers of New York,Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburg and
other cities have made many announcements of it to their readers.
When a man fails to think that his
home town is the best town of its size
in the country it is timo for hiin to
seek another location.
