I  The adjourned meeting of the Board  of Trade was held on Friday evening  last. President W. A. McLean occupied  the chair, and there was a good turnout of. members.  After reading and disposal of minutes, the president reported for the  executive committee in the matter of  streets and other local improvements.  He had been talking matters over with  Mr. M. K. Rodgers,  who had met Mr.  Shatford and Premier McBride.   He  (Mr. Rodgers) had discussed with them  the matter of taking measures to protect the banks of the creek, and of  opening up Scott avenue to the south  and found that they were in favor of  having it .done.   Mr. McLean further  said that the committee had made an  examination of the creek up to the old  brewery site, and found that here was  where the greatest danger lay of damage to property if something were not  done; and that a large sum would be  required.    He   suggested getting an  engineer to make an examination and  decide what should be done. Mr. Brass  also favored the idea of bringing in an  engineer, i whose examination would  be conclusive evidence to the Government both of the work necessary and  the urgency of thec'case.  Mr. Boeing thought that in the matter of street improvement in asking  for aid, it wouhfbe well to specify the  streets upon which work was most  required. ���������������  Mr. McLean thought that if the  townsite made an appropriation the  Government would supplement it.  ��������� Moved by'Chas. E. Oliver, seconded  by A. McDermott that this Board ask  'the.Provincial Government for an appropriation of $7,000, $2,000 to apply  on streets in Hedley, $1500 to bridges  and $3,500 for necessary work to keep]  Twenty-mile creek in its bed and prevent injury being done to public property; find that the Government be asked to send their engineer to make an  examination and decide, what steps  should be taken. Carried.  The secretary reported for the printing committee and explained what  steps had been taken.  Dr. Whillans thought that it would  be opportune for the Board to place  itself on record'in the matter of obtaining a hospital. -Ymir had received  $1,000; and it would be. well for Hedley  to make application for assistance.  The chairman suggested that the  ���������Government be asked to give lots, but  Mr. Fraser did not think that any of  the government lots would be suitable,  that during the summer season a site  down on the Similkameen river would  be better; and he favored deferring  the matter until after the adjourned  meeting of the employees of the Daly  Reduction Co.     ' v  Dr. Whillans moved, seconded by  A. D. Worgan, that the Government  be.asked to donate a suitable site for  hospital use, and to grant a certain  sum for equipment of a public hospital  and also a certain sum for maintenance.  Moved by A. Megraw, seconded by  F. H. French, that the Hedley Board  | of Trade correspond with the managers of the Bank of British North America, Canadian Bank of Commerce,  Bank of Montreal and the Royal Bank,  at Vancouver,  to ascertain their intentions with reference to the opening  of a branch at Hedley. Carried.  Moved by E. D. Boeing, seconded by  Finlay Fraser, and resolved that the  Board of Trade apply to the Post Office  Department for a tri-weekly mail service from Penticton to Hedley and  also from Hedley to the Boundary  District, and in support of same beg  leave to submit the following reasons:  The extra mail per week to Penticton is necessary  (1) Became of the large volume of  business to be accommodated owing to  the extensive development of the  Nickel Plate and other mining properties, and the important business interests of Hedley.  (2) The sub-division of the Ellis estate at Penticton is creating a demand  for closer communication.  (3) The Department formerly maintained a tri-weekly service from Penticton to McKinney, when the distance  was as great, the road more difficult  and the volume of business much less  than that between Penticton and  Hedley, and are now maintaining a  tri-weekly service to Fairview.  (4) With only two mails a' week all  the Hedley mail matter arriving in  Penticton after Monday night must  lie there until Saturday morning,  which is a serious inconvenience  and loss.  For the establishment of a tri-weekly  mail service to the Boundary District,  the following reasons are ��������� to be submitted: *'  (1) There is no means of communication at present between the Boundary  and the Similkameen except by C. &  W7, Arrow lakes/ C.P.R. main line,  the S. &. O. and Okanagan lake, with  about fifty miles of staging at either  end in order to reach Anarchist mountain and' points on the Kettle river;  thus entailing loss of time and serious  cost. .  (2) By having the mail route, at  present in operation between Midway  and Sidley, extended on to Hedley via  Fairview and the service made triweekly, not only would the extreme  points be,benefited but also the many  important farming settlements along  the   route.  (3) Proprietors of stage lines are already attracted, by thie prospect of a  good business along this route, owing  to the probability of an early commencement of railway construction;  and are anxious to cover the route and  tender on any mail contract.  And that a copy of this resolution  be forwarded to Mr. Duncan Ross with  the request that he use his influence  to obtain it.  Moved by Harvey Tingley, seconded  by Win. Ar'nott, and resolved that the  Hedley Board of Trade apply to the  Minister of Public Works to have the  government telephone extended to tap  the Boundary district, either by extending it eastward from Fairview  over Anarchist mountain or by limning it southward to make^connection  at some point that is now connected  by telephone with the'Boundary, and  beg to submit the following reasons:  (1).Both the Boundary and Similkameen are mining districts, and have  a common interest that requires direct  communication by wire.  (2) With . the great probability of  active railway construction in progress between Midway and the Similkameen next Summer, and the greater  need of speedy communication for the  efficient maintenan^ of order,' as well  as for business purposes, it is most  desirable that connection by wire  be made.  And that a copy of this resolution  be forwarded to Duncan Ross, M. P.  for Yale-Cariboo, with the request that  he use every effort to obtain it.  Mr. Fraser suggested that some action  be taken by the Board to strengthen  the hands of the representative in his  efforts to obtain a railway.  Mr. Rolls moved, seconded by Mr.  Fraser, that the Board instruct the  secretary to write to Mr. Shatford,  M.P.P., and ascertain from him what  course he would prefer to have the  Board pursue to aid him in his work  of obtaining the railway legislation  which will be of the most benefit to  the Similkameen riding and to Hedley  and also in the matter of necessary  local improvements. The motion carried unanimously.  Mr. Fraser drew- attention to the  action being taken by other Boards of  Trade throughout the province for  preventing the destruction caused by  forest fires.  Moved by Mr. French, seconded by  Wm. Arnotfc, that this Board of Trade  join with other Boards through the  province in requesting the government  to appoint fire wardens for each district, and take any other necessary  steps to prevent danger from fires.  Carried.  FOR A HOSPITAL  Employees of the Daly Reduc  tion Company Discuss  the   Matter.  A   COMMITTEE  APPOINTED  AS    SEEN    BY    OUTSIDERS,  The Carberry Express Tells what Man-  itobans Think of the Similkameen.  To Canvass the:'Town and District to  Ascertain Probable Support, and Call  Public Meeting Later On.  As intimated in last week's Gazette,  the employees of the Daly Reduction  Co. met again on Saturday night, and  this time obtained a better representation.  .  In the absence of Mr. H. S. Joyner,  who presided at a former meeting, Mr.  G. B.'Lyoh was elected chairman, Mr.  Tingley acting as secretary.  There was present also a committee  from the Nickel Plate mine, consisting  of Messrs. E. Mills, H. F. Jones and  J. McKinnon, who had been appointed  at a meeting held recently at the mine.  Mr. Mills, as spokesman for the mine  committee, explained the views held  by the men at the mine.  Mr. Day favored the appointment of  a committee to act with the Board of  Trade in obtaining a .grant from the  Provincial Government.  Mr. Jones advised starting a sick  and benefit fund.  Messrs. Fraser, Howard, Wood,  Harrison and the chairman advocated |  moving for. a general hospital, as the  scheme most likely to commend itself  to the general public and accomplish  the most good.  It was finally decided to appoint a  committee of three to act with* the  mine committee and ascertain to what  extent the public would aid in the  matter, and later to call a public meeting. The committee appointed consisted of Messrs. Harrison, Wood and the  secretary.  Mr. Deardorff announced that Mr.  L. Headland had offered to donate two  lots for a hospital site, and the meeting passed a vote of thanks to Mi'.  Headland/for his generous offer.  The committee have lost no time in  getting to work and- to test public  feeling as to how much could be raised,  they have drawn up the following  heading for a subscription list, viz:  ��������� Whereas there is at present no hospital in the Similkameen Vadey, nor  any suitable place to take care of the  sick or wounded, should any serious  accident occur in the vicinity; and as  Hedley is the most central point and  nearest to where the greatest mimber  of men are empioyed, and therefore  the greater, risk is incurred; and,  whereas it is known that many valuable lives have been saved by receiving  proper treatment and nursing in a  wen managed hospital, which otherwise they would not have received.  We, the undersigned residents of  the district do hereby subscribe the  sums opposite our respective names  for the building of a general hospital  in Hedley, to be supported by the sale  of hospital tickets, subscriptions, government grants etc. It is further understood that when the district is  canvassed a public meeting will be  called to take action in regard to the  building of the aforesaid hospital.  Circumstances aiter cases. The necessity of keeping warm has been responsible for eifectinga transformation  in the appearance of the town by the  rearing away of standing trees that  obstructed the view. To do this clearing in the summer would have been a  bask. ~8ince the stove-pipes were put  up last fall   it has been a privilege.  The new cable tower at the Daly  Reduction Co.'s power house is being  put in place, most of the framing having been completed. The driving  shaft in this tower will be connected  with the large engine of the auxiliary  plant, and by cabie this power will be  transmitted to the main shaft in the  stamp mill so that in a period of water shortage or any temporary mishap  to the flume, there will be no suspension of operations.  [Published by Request.]  On January 5th a party of Carbon y  gentlemen, Messrs. J.  J.  Armstrong,  J. D. Hunt, S. McCurd-y, Rod McLean,  J. W. Stratford,  Colin Murchison, J.  McKaskill, William Henderson, Joseph  Bennett,   J.   Bennett,   si\, and Tom  Bennett,   left  on   a   trip for British  Columbia.    The party was 'organized  by  Mr.   Armstrong,   who    purposed  visiting the famous Similkameen valley, where he and his brother, W. II.  Armstrong, of Vancouver, have property.   The whole party went through  to Vancouver where  they separated.  Mr. Armstrong and Mr.  Hunt, after  spending a week in Vancouver, left for  Similkameen, accompanied by W. H.  Armstrong.   This trip includes transportation by railway, steamship and  stage.   The railway trip is from Vancouver to Sicainous, then to Okanagan.  Here the boat is taken and an SO mile  run down Okanagan lake.   Along the  shore of this lake are situated KeloAvna,  Peachland   and  Summer-land,'  all  of  which places the party stopped at for  a look about.   At the south end of the  lake is   situated  Penticton, and  here  the party engaged a special rig to take  them overland to Keremeos, a settle-  ment.in the Similkameen valley, and  it is here that W. H. Armstrong has  1700 acres of what is claimed to be the  choicest  land . in   British   Columbia.  Keremeos is considered to be one of the  best fruit districts of British Columbia.  Fruits of all_ kinds there reach their  greatest,   perfection.     Peaches    and  grapes produced at Keremeos are as  fine as any grown in the world, while  as to apples they are certainly unexcelled  as   to quality  and   size.   The  writer was presented with one measur-  ing  over 12 inches in   circumference  and it was one of the sweetest apples  one coidd wish for.   The Similkameen  valley appears to be a. continuation of  the desert regions which extend from  British Columbia through Washington, California and south to Mexico.  The valley is not as yet in communication with tlie outside world by means  of railroads, but it is assured that both  the C. P. R. and the Great Northern  will  reach  Keremeos   this  summer.  This will mean that the district will  become one of the greatest-fruit-grow-,  ing districts of Canada.   At present  the principal production is cattle for  beef. Alfalfa, the famous clover grass,  grows here to great advantage,  the  average crop being about five tons to  the acre, and as three crops of alfalfa  can be gathered each year this makes  the country particularly adapted for  raising  cattle.   The   fruit grown   at  Keremeos is at least two weeks earlier  than that grown at Peachland,  Summerland   or  any  of the  other fruit  districts   of   British   Columbia,   and  when the new line of railway is opened  out Keremeos will be only six hours  run from Vancouver.   This will be a  great advantage as fruit can be placed  on Vancouver market before the dew  is dry upon it.  As soon as tile railroad, is located, a  townsite will be laid out. Already  Mr. Armstrong is having theT700 litres  they own laid out in five and ten acre  lots for sale purposes. Richard Elm-  hurst of Pleasant Point has been engaged to look after this property and  will leave for the west soon. It is the  purpose of Mr. Armstrong to have  these small lots set out with fruit trees  and the property placed on the market.  J. J. Armstrong and H. W. Brown  have already secured two of the ten  acre lots and have ordered fruit trees  for them. To people in Manitoba, at  this the coldest part of our year, the  Keremeos appeals most keenly" as in  this valley there is no frost. The  summers are very warm, but then  there is the advantage that one can  take to the hills and there- delight in  the cool breezes of the mountains.  At Keremeos lives a Mr. Richter,  who has been in the valley for about  40 years. He speaks in glowing terms  of the many advantages offered by the  valley and during the time he has been  there has, in spite of the many disadvantages under which he has had to  labor, accumulated a fortune that is  represented by big figures. While the  Carberry contingent were at Keremeos Mr. Richter was most kind'to theni  and did everything possible to make  their visit'a pleasant one.  On the return trip J. D, Hunt and  J. J. Armstrong stopped over at  Peachland for a few days on a visit to  Thompson Elliott, a Carberry old  timer. Mr. Elliott is doing particularly well with his fruit ranch at this  point and is very enthusiastic about  Pritish Columbia. ^Horiief  little bluing If they are to havs a  clear white.

A good, but tedious, way is to cover   the     spare  room  carpet  with     a  sheet held firmly  and  smoothly    by  tacking    the    edges    to    the     floor.

From that  moment the Japanese soldiers of  the First Army never lost touch  with the Russians in front of them.  , As soon as the ice melted in the  estuary of the Ping-yang River: General Kuroki moved his base from  Chemulpo to Chinampo. The greater  portifm of his artillery, including  the heavy six-inch howitzers, which  rendered such splendid service at the  battle of the Yalu, was landed at  Chinampo, and the first striking  force was prepared for its advance  towards  the Yalu. .  RUSSIANS, RETIRED. .  The/ Russians retired steadily^ before Kuroki, until they crossed the  Yalu at Wiju on.April 7. There they  halted, and took up a position on  the opposite bank of tho river, and  prepared to contest th������ crossing. By  April 26 General Kuroki had completed the concentration of the First  Army at Wiju, and began his preparations to force a passage.

Put the  pancake griddle on the stove, let.it  heat to the proper degree, then  grease it all over the surface with a  piece of fat larding pork, stuck on  a fork. Then pour the batter on the  griddle in small cakes. When, done  on one side, turn them quickly with  a pancake turner; then lift off, put  on hot plates and serve at once.  If you find the batter is too thin,  stir in a little wheat flour. You can  tell by baking the first cakes if more  flour is required.   .,  USEFUL HINTS.  WASHING  LACES.  There is nothing so destructive to  laces as careless washing, and it is,  therefore, advisable to do this part  of the laundry work at home. It is  not a tedious nor difficult task, but  one that requires care and the use  of the proper materials.  Real   lace   and  very   delicate     silk  lace are easily cleaned  by the use of  benzine   or   naphtha.   As  both   these  article; are very inflammable,  it . is  better    to  do the work  in  a    room  where    there is no lighted lamp     or  open    fire.    . Put the naphtha in    a  bowl and move the lace about in it.  working  it up and  down  rapidly.   If  the naphtha becomes dark,  put    the  lace in another vessel and pour fresh  naphtha  over it.   Dip  it gently     up  and  down,   keeping the lace  on     the  under side until  it is  clean.   Stretch  the cloth to   which the lace is basted out upon a clean table with    the  lace uppermost,   and  secure  it     with  a few lacks or pins.   This should be  placed in a room where no dust will  fall on it and allowed to remain all  day.   Tt will be dry in a short time,  but a day's airing will be needed   to  get rid  of  the smell  of naphtha.   If  the naphtha that has  been used    is  set aside a few  hours,   the  dirt will  settle to  the  bottom,   and  the clean  naphtha can  be poured  off and used  again   to    wash silk, kid gloves    or  anything that cannot he washed    in  water.  Lace or ambroidered handkerchiefs,  collar and other laces are nicely  cleaned by the following method:  Make a suds of soft water and ivory  soap. Yellow, resinous soap should  never be used for this purpose, as  it is likely to give them a yellow  tinge and to rot tho fabric. Rub  the soap on the dirty spots and put  the articles in the suds to ������oak for  several hours. Then wash with as  /.ittlc rubbing as possible. When they  are white and clean, rinse them  through two or three lukewarm wafers until not a trace of soap remains c^'d in the last one put. a very  Have the silver drawer in the sideboard divided into compartments  lined with velveteen or corduroy  with a neatly fitted pad for the bottom that can be removed for dusting  The silver should be laid in a orderly fashion, spoons of various sizes  kept separate from knives and forks !ju"Kuroki threw  for convenience as well as to pre-'  vent scratching.

General Oku, who was in command of  tho Japanese troops, pushed his men  forward rapidly, and 'Dalny was occupied by May 15. On May 2(5 occurred tho first big battle on the  Lio.o-tung peninsula, when General  Oku attacked the Russian position  at Nnnshan. which stands on tho.  narrow neck of land connecting the  peninsula with the mainland. Desperate fighting continued for five  days, the Japanese attacks being repeatedly repulsed.  At length a picked body of troops,  belonging to the First Japanese Division, forced its way through the  wire on-ianglements with which the  Russians had protected their trenches %nd carried the position at the  point of the bayonet. Seventy-eight  guns were captured amd enormous  losses were inflicted on tho Russians  But the Japanese paid a. high price  for their victory, tho killed and  wounded amounting to over 3,500  nflir.ers  and  men.  SCIENTIFIC   FANATICS.  This was the first occasion during  the present war in which the Japanese displayed that absolute fearlessness and disregard of death, combined with tho highest knowledge of  tho art of war, which has led one  writer to describe them as "scientific fanatics."  The unexampled courage which as-  tonishod the world at Nansahan,  and which many people were inclined  cHsiona during the siege of Port Arthur that foreign observers have  come to regard their absolute and:  complete disregard of death as one  of tho commonplace attributes of the  Japanese soldier. Following the encounter . of Nanshan tho Japanese  forces divided.  The    Third    Army,   under  General  Nogi,  continued    to  face southward  on its tremendous mission of~ besieging Port Arthur.   The Second Army,,  under General Oku. faced northward,  an'd began  the long inarch to Liao-  yang    and    beyond. ��������� Another force,'  commanded  by General  Nodzu,    and  known to the Japanese as the Taku-  shan Army, from its having   landed  at that point, was,  meanwhile    advancing in a northwesterly direction  in co-operation with General Kuroki  who waited at Feng-huan-ahbng from  May 11 until June 26,  while Nodzu  was slowly getting into position. <  JAPS GENERAL PLAN.  The general    plan of the Japanese  strategy,  therefore,  was that    while  one great army of nearly 90,000 uruen  was moving south  against Port Arthur,   three  others,   totalling  over  a  rj/uarter of a million men,,moving on  a front describing roughly   a   great  semi-circle, were converging on Liao-  yang.   Kuroki in the east, among the j  mountains,  was    slowly driyrmr     in  the Russian left flank.   In the centre  General Nodzu,  with    the Taku-shan  Army,  was '.'.clearing- the country     of,  the Russians  as  he  advanced,   while  General Oku,  with the largest force,  moved  up  along the '.railway.      The  latter  came     into   contact  with  the  ill-fated     expedition   under   Stacklc-  berg,     which     General   Kouropatkin  had despatched as a sort of forlorn  hope to the relief of Port Arthur.  It is Into in the day to again discuss the folly of that movement.  Two divisions wore sent south along  the railway from Hui-cheng to meet  General Oku, who had nearly twice  that strength at his disposal. In  addition the Russian force had on  its flanks the armies of Nodzu and  Kuroki.    --.-'-���������.���������';      ,   >���������������    -���������:������������������..-      ���������'.';-  STACKLEBERG   CRUSHED.  . But: General    Oku  alone was more,  than able: to'-"deal with Stackleberg's  two weak divisions.     They met .the  Japanese    at   Telissu ;  (or' Wa-fang-  kau)   aiwl  sustained  a   dreadful/< reverse.     Outnumbered    both   iii'^guns  andmen, and put-manoeuvred by his  opponent,     Stackleberg's ' ill-starred  attempt to relieve Port Arthur    was  crushed,  with  the loss of nearly 10,-  000 men, besides; a large" number   of  guns.   It  was   the  third  tiirie    that  the  opposing   armies   had. mot,   and  on each  occasion    the Russians..'had  sustained   overwhelming   defeat/      It  must be rememibered that in all these  battles,   as,   indeed,   in-every'..'action  of the war down to the battle of the  Sha-ha,   the Russians  were :   greatly  outnumbered,..sometimes,'  as    at  the  Yalu,   by fully five-to one.    It   was  this  circumstaTico     which    permitted  the Japanese to  undertake the wide  flanking- movements which have been  the d-ominating feature of every   encounter,  and whidh enabled them   to  compel , the    Russians    to    evacuate  strong positions..   Where,   as  in   this  war, two forces meet which are equally brave," and fairly equally skilled  in warfare,  tho  advantage will     always rest with    the more  niumerous.  force,     In  this case the numerically.'  strongcr  army  was   also   the   better-  trained,     and    the    Russian chances  wore   correspondingly   diminished.  When Kuroki resumed his forward  movement, after his long halt at  Fenf-lvuan-chong, the Russian forces  slowly retired before him, evacuating  the- fastnesses of the Motion-ling  Pass. On July 17 a soimewha^tentative attempt was made to recover  possossion of the pass, but it was  easily repulsed, as was a more serious one made about a fortnight  later, when the Russian loss exceeded 1,000" killed and wounded. Almost in the saniw locality there was  yet another fierce little battle, as a  result of which General Kuroki sciz-  ed^ho Ta-ling and Yan-tsu^ling passes and got into position for the  filial  advance  on Liao-yang.  KOUROPATKIN'S POSITION. *  By this time',.' .'the beginning of  August, General Kouropatkiti's position on the railway near ITai-oheng:  had become critical. *Oku was pressing hard on his front from the south  along the railway, while Nodzu and  Kuroki were threatening his left  front   and   Hank.   The   Uussiau   com  mander could not'risk a great battle in such a position, so he began  what proved to be a masterly-conducted retirement on Liao-yang.  There he entrenched himself and  waited for .Jus .enemies. The Japanese commanders did not delay,  now that the moment had come to  strike. By August 24 they were in  touch with the Russian outposts,  and that evening began the series of  battles which culminated in tho titanic  struggle round  Liao-yang.  Field-Marshal  Oyanui  had assumed  the supremo command'of the. Japan  ese armies,, and  directed the     great  movement against    the concentrated  Russian forces., After a series of actions,     which    in    most    campaign*  would .have ranked as battles,     the  final "struggle b������gan south and east  of Liao-yang oh August.  30.        For  two days' the fortune of war swayed//'!  to neither army.   The Russians had   '  strengthened Ihoir positions by    extensive  earthworks,   which   thoy    defended with magnificent courage.  At  length,     on     September  1/ Marshal  Oyama despatched  Kuroki  with  the  First Army to make a groat turning  movement  against  the Russian left,.',  so  as  to     threaten  his  line  of     retreat towards  the north.  The major'  portion  of the interest in this     historic battle will centre in that turn-'  ing  movement.  MIGHT  HAVE  BEEN  A  SEDAN.  If  the    Japanese  commander,     instead  of   weakening   Kuroki's     command by a division,  had strengthened it by that amount, the result   of  Liao-yang might have been very different.   Kuroki   would   in   all      pro-,  bability have been  able to turn the  Russian   left,   seize  the  railway     at  Yeutui,  and might have realized the  ideal  which    tho Japanese  had     set  before  themselves  of  making     Liao-  yang    the    Sedan    of  the    Russian  army.  As it was, when he had succeeded  in crossing the Tni-tse-'ho he was  barely able to hold his own, and-  when the fierce assaults of Gku's and  Nodzu's armies on the south forced  the Russians out of the old Chinese  city across the Liao-ho, all that  Kuroki could do was to "throw himself fruitlessly against the massed  divisions which . Kouropatkin pushed  out to protect his flank, and which  held their ground till the whole of  the Russian army, with all its guns  and impediments, and most of the  immense mass of stores that had  been accumulated in Liao-yang, had  made good its retirement from Liao-  yang.    -  This is not the ".place to recall the  details     of     the  great  battle  which  lasted from August 30 to Septemfjicr  5.   The heroic courage which marked  the soldiers'   of both sides,   and  the  awful carnage that accompanied the  capture and     recapture     of   position  after position, are too recent to   require/recapitulation     in   this '   brief  summary of tho events of the war.  A   GRMAT   SOLDIER.  But  this  much   may  be  said, -that  the manner in which the Russian retreat     was     conducted    by   General  Kouropatkin  stamps him. as fon������   of  the, great soldiers  of his  time.    .   Of  the losses, in  the battle  there    have  been, "various  estimates  made, but it  is probable,-' that fully 50,000    men.  were?killed  and wo'inded in-the scries  of actions,   between August     2-1  aiVd September 5.   A month later another  great  battle took_ place north  of .'Liao-yang,. when     the    Russians,   ���������  having    been    reinforced - by    fresh  troops, 'made'an    attempt to     force  their   way   southwards.   That    effort1  ended   in   disaster. , The Russian' attack  was  repulsed   with  the loss    of  45;000 imen."

Many of us miss the joys that  might be ours by keeping our eyes  fixed on those of other people. No.  one can enjoy his own opportunities for happiness while ho is envious  of another's.

Life has its full  mcasuro of happiness for every ono  of us if wc would only make up our  minds to make the very most of  every opportunity that comes our  way, instead of longing for tho things  that come our  neighbor's  way. JOE AND THE  FOREMAN  i  i'im ��������� ��������� **���������  "Your account's out just one loaf,  young fellow,", the foreman of tho  ' bakery, Mr. Jacques, said to the  boy who stood beforo him.  Joe Marston tr/ed to think of any  ���������ale for which ho failed to make collection. His business was to deliver  bread a day old throughout a district in which poor people livod who  preferred the stale loaves because  they wero a cent apioco cheaper than  the fresh ones. . Mr Jacques was a  gruff man, and apparently without  the kindly disposed heart that is  sometimes thought to be hidden  under a rough exterior. At any  rate, ho held the drivers of tho  broad waggons to a very strict account.  "Oh, I know, sir," Joe suddenly  exclaimed, as a recollection came to  him. "Old Mrs. Machon hadn't had  anything'to'-eat since yesterday, and  I let her have a loaf until to-morrow.  "Then why didn't you pay for it  yourself? We're not running a  charity hall. If she pays you back  all right; but you'll have to fork  over now."  Joa handed out the four cents,  looking as if he had committed some  crime. When tho foreman went  away (ho was a stockholder in tho  company) some of tho working girls  expressed their opinion of him in  vigorous  terms.  "The mean old thing! I don't believe he's got any heart," said one.':  ^You did right, Joe.

Suddenly there was a creaking, groaning sound heard, and the  floor began to "sink. Thoso nearest,  the windows, which wore open, ran  towards them; but only three reached them beforo tho building collapsed, the walla bent inward, and machinery, flour, men and women went  crashing  through  to  tho basement.  In a moment screams of agony  ca/mc up from "these below who were  crushed in the wrecka-o. Joe had  caught hold of a window sill, and  had no difficulty in drawing himself  to a seat on the lodge; but the wall  itself was to tiering and he was in  great   danger.  The cry came from, someone near  him, and Joe looked inward. 'l'wr>  girls who had expressed their sympathy with hirn when he wa������ reprimanded by tho foreman, woro hanging to the sill. To let go meant to  fall to" the basement and, almost  ccrfain death: yet they could not  hold on longer then a few minutes.  Joe felt his nerves tinurlo at the  thought.  He turned to tho outside. The  flro-escn.pe " was about six feet beneath him and although twisted by  tho bulging of the wall, it ran up  to the window whore tho girls were  hanging?. Ho dropped to it, and  then made his way to the upper  window as rapidly as possible, bracing h?s feet against tho iron railing  ar������d his shoulder against the side  of the window ho grasped tho arm  of the girls and pulled with all his  might, telling her to help herself at  the same time with her other hand.  She did so and was soon loanin;;  through tho window, from whero she  made short work of getting out on  the tire escape.  Then Joo tried to help the other  girl in tho same way. But she had  been holding on for a few seconds  longer than her companion, so that  when Joo took her by the arm sho  lot go of the window with the other  ha.no also. This threw hoi* entire  weight on him, and he was drawn  inward in spite of his utmost endeavor.  It was a terrible moment. With  ������vc,ry muscle strained until his eyes  ������<v������ncd to start out of his head, and  tht* sharp corner of tho casemont  ���������rutting his shoulder, he folt himself  ^rilng overcome.

"I can't!" she screamed /' in a  frenzy of fear, her fingers scratching  the paint in their wild grasping to  secure a hold. /  Just then both felt an upward and  outward motion to their bodies. Tho  girl first rescued heard her companion's wild scream, and at once  seized the hand of tho arm which  Joe held, pulling, outwards with all  her might. This assistance came not  a mromont too soon, and with it Joe  was enabled to drag the girl safely  to the lodgeC <  They wore obliged to rest a moment, and tlien began to make their  way down the escapo.

Some-  limes the bird will be seen to hang  in the air -with its wings apparently  niotionle-s and-the sailors say that  then  it is asleep.  Not only in pleasant weather will  the alLatro>s follow a ship for days  ntul weeks, but through the most  terri'"c storms it will, continue its  untiring Light, in fact, to find an  al .atruss otherwise than -on the  wing is  like I m-ing a  weasel   asleep.

The albatross has always been a  bird of mystery, and in ancient  times the people believed that these  unwearying sea. birds were tho companions of tho Creek warrior Diome-  des, who wero said to have been  changed into hires at the death of  their  chief.  When America was discovered and  ships began to sail abroac \j the  Pacific Ocean to double the Capo of  Good Hope and to explore tho "seven sens" gc o. ally, the old belief  about the albatross had been forgotten by the sailors and explorers, '  but in their long and lonesome voyages over waters which were cut by!  no keel but their own, and upon'  whoso vast expanse they saw no  other sail but theirs, tho prcsei.ee of  the albatross following 'the ship day  after day became a great source of  comfort and companionship. So it  came to be a belief that ill-luck  would follow any one who killed one  of these birds; and that-belief is  common among seafaiirg men to  this very day. Colcri '.go's famous  "Rhyme of tho Ancient Mariner" is  based   upon   this   belief. |  Though  the. superstition  about  the  killing cf an-alb. tross  bringing  bad  luck    is only   a  foolish    one,- it has  served     a  useful' purpose  for      many  years in preventing the slaughter    of  the.-o    braulifi 1    and gallai t birds���������  the pallor's    friends   and   the  landsmen's wonder.

Canada exports annually millions of chickens to the United States and  Great'Britain.  The consumption-of poultry Vt Canada is increasing rapidly and the  poultry dealers coraplain that they cannot get enough poultry to fill their  orders. '.--���������.;���������...  One woman bought a No. 2 Chatham Incubator the first of March  ���������she had five hatches by July first and had four hundred plump,  sturdy chicks. In six months her Incubator had p^icl her Sico.oo, several  'times its cost.    A Chatham Incubr.tor should pay for itself each hatch.  We have perfected an Incubator and brooder. We believe it is now  "absolutely the best in the world. We have sufficient capital behind us, and  we are out for the entire business in incubators. We know that there is no  other incubator that can approach the "  This is our proposition : To demonstrate our absolute confidence in the Chatham Incubator  we will send one to you, freight prepaid, and you make your first payment in October, 1905.  The fact that we sell our Incubators in this m.innc-r guarantees them to the fullest extent.  Thirty days' trial is a delusion and a snare. If you have good luck you may get off one hatch in  that time, and even then you are uncertain, and if you reject the machine you will have to pay the  freight both ways. But with us you send ia your oi\:er and we ship the machine prepaid. When  it arrives, if it seems all right, start your hatch, and we will give you until October, 1905, before  you have to pay a ccr.t in cash. We positively guarantee that the machine is a good hatcher.  Every machine should sell a dozen, and we will, on no account, allow a machine that is defective  to remain in any neighborhood.

NOTICE is hereby given thai  date I intend to apply to  ntiasloner of Lands and Works  PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE  A   Comprehensive  Summary Of   What  Is  Transpiring At The Capital.  [Special to the Gazette.]  The present session of the Legislature .'promises' to be among the short-  ost in the history of the province.  There are those who believe that within another four or five weeks prorogation will be reached.  The debate on the address in reply  to the speech of His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor proved a very short  one, differing essentially from those of  other years. C B. Ross of Fernie and  F. Taylor of lievelstoke, the mover  and seconder of the address, delivered  splendid speeches.-"'They 'referred to  the success which had attended the  present government in its efforts to  place the province on a sound basis.  The deplorable financial condition at  the time when the Premier took power  had in a large measure been overcome,  and the finances of the country were  being put on a sound basis. The surplus, though small, was something  which the people of the province rightly feel proud of.  Mr. Taylor said the tax payers had  Stood manfully by the government in  the strenuous time, and though their  taxes were necessarily increased, had  not grumbled. He laid stress upon the  fact that ���������'better terms" from Ottawa  were a necessity. Only two other  .speeches were delivered on the address,  those of the two leaders.  J. A. Macdonald, leader of the opposition, spoke very deliberately and  refrained from anything which could  be regarded as severe in his criticism  of the government's policy. He took  exception to the condition of mining,  making a plea against the 2 per cent,  mineral tax. The finances showed that  the industry was not as flourishing he  said as last year. In his reply the  Premier pointed out that with a total  mineral production of $15,000,000 worth  last year and only $65,000 raised under  the 2 per cent, tax that the mineral  industiy could not be said to be unduly taxdd.  What was perhaps watched for most,  particularly by all members of the  House, in the speech of Premier Mc-  Bride was his reference to a railway  policy. He explained that last year he  had entered into negotiations looking  During the past week the weather  has been delightfully fine, calm and  sunny. On Sunday a chinook sprang  up, bringing rain and fog���������a change  very much for the worse, since it  means muddy roads and probably a  fresh supply of colds.  The telephone has now been in operation for some days. The only instrument in Fairview is established in  Jas. Stewart's store, now leased by J.  P. McCuddy. There has been considerable dissatisfaction expressed, about  the location of the telephone office. It  appears that the public convenience  was not consulted in the matter unless  one ciin- give that name to the Liberal  committee in town. However, the  main thing is that the telephone is in  operation, and there would have been  objections no matter where the office  was located. In a three inile town like  this there should, be at least two  phones.  Mr. i). J.

When the House rose he  had expected that some conclusion  might have been reached which would  have authorized him in calling a summer session. He had failed however to  come to arrangements.  At the present time he had under  consideration several schemes, and before long he might be able to make a  statement with reference to some railway legislation which might be introduced.  The history of bonusing railways in  B. C. in the past the Premier said had  not been very wisely done. He would,  before introducing any railway legislating, see that the assets of the province  were  not  drawn upon beyond  what could be borne.   He was determined to proceed slowly in the matter.  Up to the present time no further  statement   has    been  made  by   the  Premier in the House.   The question  of railway legislation is however receiving the most careful attention, and  Mr. Shatford, the member for Similkameen, is doing all in his power to  press upon the memhers of the Legislature the importance of going to the  utmost extent in providing for a road  through the rich country he represents.

Henderson's interest in the Commercial hotel and will henceforth run the  business himself., ���������  John Love has improved both the  appearance and the light of his store  by putting in a large new window in  front.  Phoenix curlers captured" many of  the buns at the Kootenay 'Curling  Association's bonspiel held in Nelson  recently.  A burst in the water pipe at the  Grand Union corner on Saturday afternoon was responsible for a" wet time  for a while until the water was shut  off up at the mill. '  Freighters state that' the roads are  beginning to soften up. The mud is  mostly superficial, but in some of the  silty bottoms the softening is from below as if the frost were coming out.  The Friday Club met at Mrs Hard-  wick's last week when the subject discussed was 'American humorists.'  This week the Club will meet at Miss  Megraw's and the subject will be 'Canadian'Poets.'  The first meeting of the Nicola Licensing Board held in Hedley took place  in the Gazette office on Tuesday when  tho licence for the Commercial hotel  was transferred from W. A. McLean  to W. J. Henderson. There were present Chief Licence Inspector Hugh  Hunter and Commissioners C. E Thomas of; Princeton, and A., Megraw of  Hedley, the latter having recently  been transferred from the Licensing  Board of Southeast Yale to that of  Nicola.  Electrician Cootes has l>eun busy setting up the new 20,000.1b. electric motor for the electric tramway at the  Nickel Plate mine. This motor will be  the great mogul of the line, and will  have brawn enough in its shoulders to  perform any duty required of it from  yanking a saw-logout of the, woods to  handling a trainload of ore. The motor  formerly in use will henceforth bo employed only on the lighter work of the  road.    ' '  The Hedley Lumber Co. are. going  to do their share to keep things, humming next summer. They are getting  out a large stock of logs this season.  Last week about 30,000 feet were taken  out, and over a million feet have- now  been secured. On; Monday, Angus  Stewart and Ben Switzer went up to  Princeton to start another logging  camp up there, and a considerable por-  tionof next season's cut will thus come  down the Similkameen after the ice  goes out.  The number of acceptances for the  Bachelors' Ball is increasing every day  and the attendance from' the outside  will be large. The Hotel Similkameen  "which is to supply, the supper is paying all attention, to .the larder these  days, so do a little judicious dieting  from now on.  Balmy air with the last of the snow  disappearing off the flat and the calling of crows and jays has given quite  a spring appearance during the past  week. But the weatherwise shake"  their heads and say "It's too early  yet." St. Patrick's Day and the first  robin are required to inspire real confidence in the advent of spring.  The Nickel Plate barber shop this  week added to its ontfit one of Koken's  royal hydraulic chairs manufactured  in St.Louis. This is the latest and  most improved get-up in the way of a  barber's chair, the raising and lowering being effected without even the  suggestion of jar or shock to the occupant. Mr. McDonald has made his  shop in Hedley to compare with the  best city shops.  Delays in the customs at  Vernon  . continue to be among the most exasperating trials that the public in this  part have to contend with.   Stuff con-  . signed to parties in Hedley will lie  there month after month, no notice  being given,   and when  the owners  write to inquire about it the collector  at Vernon, dead to the world, will not  answer any letter.     Mr.   McDoald's  barber chair shipped to him early last  fall, only reached him this week.    After writing letter after letter he finally had to write to a friend in Vernon  to go personally to get the stuff away  from'this man and have it sent on.  This is only one case.     There are dozens, and something will have to be  done to end this nuisance.  It is exceedingly pleasing to note  that all are interested in helping along  the good cause of securing for the Similkameen all the advantages which  the district should possess,  to obtain  its share of   the general   prosperity  which is coming our way.   This week  Mr. M. K. Rodgers, general manager  of the Daly Reduction   Company, is  having circulated petitions for a triweekly mail service to Penticton, a triweekly mail service to the Boundary,  telephone extension to the Boundary  either by way of Anarchist Mountain  or to some point to the: South which  is now connected with the Boundary,  and'the opening up of Scott Avenue  southward to meet the main road to  Kei'emeos oh the bench to the south  west of the office thereby avoiding the  inconvenience at present experienced  in taking the road through the works  of the Daly Reduction Co. All of these  are in the interests of Hedley and the  district generally, and Mr. Rodgers is  rendering   yeoman    service  in   thus  voluntarily taking the initiative and  bearing the expense of circulating the  petitions, which it is  hoped  will be  signed by all.  The people of Anarchist Mountain  are red hot on the subject of telephone  connection between the Similkameen  and the Boundary district. They have  made a thorough canvass of. the district and find that there will be sufficient local business to make the line  pay from the start. A letter received  from Mr. Letts requests assistance towards that end by the Hedley Board  of Trade. It Ms encouraging to note  that communities all along the route  are taking^a live interest in this matter, for it will'make the chance of securing it very much stronger.  Mr. W. A.  McLean has gone eastward obtaining signatures to the petitions got out by Mr. M. K. Rodgers referred to elsewhere. It is Mr. McLean's  intention to do the whole district between here and the Boundary, so that  not a name will be left off. Should the  Public Works Department demur at  the expense of putting the telephone  line through all the way from Fairview  to Midway, Mr. Rodgers will undertake  to make   connections    between   the  boundary line and the Nighthawk if  the Goverment will   take it  to the  boundary line, but surely, when we  have the whole country with us between'here'and Midway there will be  no chance of failure to get the Government to. extend the work of making it  a direct through line.  PENTICTON NOTES.  being opened up on the Ellis side of  the creek. Lots are being cleared east  of Ellis street. Building is greatly retarded by the scarcity of lumber. The  Kelowna mill cannot get logs out of  the woods for want of snow and the  Enderby mills cannot get theirs because they are frozen in in the river.  A local saw mill here this summer  would do a rushing business.  There  is a good   opening here for  a white laundry.  Local chickens have turned loose for  the season. Fresh eggs 40 cts.  We have land seekers here. Some  are of the class that sit around the  hotel stove all. day warming their  shins and know all about it. They  won't go out and look around but expect to find the finest land in the country left vacant at the hotel door for  their own particular benefit. They go  away and run down the country when  in fact they know nothing about it.  Weather? well now you're talking.  Just imagine..

The London. Express tells of some  of tho operations performed. IA well  known footballer who had boon  under treatment, for sprained ankle  ��������� first arrived.  "It ts not a sprain -at all," said  Mr. Barker, after a brief examination. "One of tho small bones of  , the ankle is displaced, and ossinca-  tion has already begun. If you had  waited another eight . weeks you  would probably have had a diseased  bone. You will hear the bone go  back into its place."  He gripped the heel between his  knees, and grasped tho feet with  both hands. A sudden , powerful  wrench- followed, and then a loud  snap,., as if a bone had broken. Ten  minutes later the footballer walked  into Pond street with hardly a limp.  THREAV AAVAY   CRUTCHES.  Tho next patient was Miss Gertie  Kemp, a pretty girl, who-had come  from Crewe the previous day, and  whose dark- eyes shone with the joy  she felt at Mr.. Barker's successful  treatment.  ' She said she was twenty-one, and  nad been a cripple practically . all  fler life. <-At the age of 'five she met  with an accident. Since then she  has been treated by numerous surgeons for hip disease, and was in  Birmingham Spine Hospital for many  months. Sixteen years of her young  ���������life wero spent in bed and on  crutches with a six-inch cork boot.  She paid her first visit, to Mr.  Barker two months ago. He diagnosed a dislocated hip of sixteen  years standing,with no disease at  all. He replaced tho joint immediately and the girl- threw away her  crutches and the cork boot.  It was.her third visit, and' Mr.  Barker told her ho did not want to  see her agaiii. Both legs are "now  exactly equal in length. She still  limps a little, but this is due to the  flaccfcFmuscles,  and* will pass away.  MAD WITH DELIGHT.  IT WAS NOT A  FAITH  CURE  DODD'S    KIDNEY PILLS   CURED  MRS.

Interesting     Gossip About  Prominent People. ,  Some  Still more remarkable was the case  -of Mrs. Brown, who came from 'Ux-  bridge. Her feet were terribly deformed. ,She wore boots fitted with  thick steel rods that were strapped  to each leg as far as the knee. She  had? worn the boots for .five years,  and had been-to many doctors ;and  many, hospitals with no good result.  "I cannot cure this case," said Mr.  Barker, "but I can give considerable  relief. There are dislocations of  small bones in each foot, and great  growths of osseous matter have cemented the dislocations." . y. (  , He took the malformed foot In a  powerful  grip  of knees and hands.  "Do  not  jerk your  leg,"   he  said,  "or I shall  dislocate the ankle."  There was a sudden tremendous  strain and a couple of dull clicks.  "I  was  wrong," . said Mr.  Barker,  as  he  wiped  the perspiration     from  his brow,  "I can cure this case."    /  After ten    minutes'     manipulation  the feet had    been reduced to something resembling normal shape.  The  steel  supports  and  straps  were     removed frotm the boots beforo the patient put  them on. *  "Stand up," said Mr. Barker.  The "patient   looked   around     helplessly.  "I cannot stand without the  steels," she said. She had not  stood without them for-five years.  "Yes, you can," said Mr. Barker,  and the woman stood up and then  walked across the room. A few minutes later she walked down two  nights of stairs unaided, carrying in  her han-d the appliances of steels and  straps which she had worn so long.  She went fromvBond street to the  Tube station  without  assistance.  "I feel that I shall go mad with  'delight," she said again and again  to   her  companion.

TKINIDAD'S  PITCH LAKE.  Where Much of the Asphalt   Pavement Conies From.  One of the most singular lakes in  the world is the celebrated lake of  the Island of Trinidad. This lak������|  spreads , over an a-.ca of ninety-nina  acres, and its surface is composed of  one great floating mass of asphaltum  seamed with veins of clear water.  From it and a similar, lake in Venezuela the worlds supply of asphalt'  is drawn.  The pitch lake is a vile place, as  far as smells, are concerned, for the  air all about it. is heavy with noxious vapors, and from the centre of  the lake gushes a fountain of liquid  asphaltum, in which there float and  break bubbles . containing, most horrible gases.  The workmen go out on the surface of this lake and cut great slabs  of asphaltum, which are carried  away. ' But the next morning the  hole they left is filled up again with  the pitch which has risen during the  night, so that the supply seems to  be  inexhaustible." .   -   - _  This curious lakp was discovered  by Sir AValter Raleigh wdien he landed in Trinidad in 1595 on his way  to the mouth of the Orinoco in  6earch of El Dorado.  Another strange lake is situated  out a peninsula which juts-out into  the Caspian Sea.

Among the many recent improvements in railway construction in  Germany is the welding together of  rail ends, whereby practically continuous rails aro secured, ��������� and tho  new heating substance, thermite, has  greatly facilitated this process. Thermite is formed by the union of finely  pulverized aluminum with oxygen.  AVhon this mixture is ignited, chemical combination takes place with an  cxtraordinaty development of heat,  not much less than that of' the electric arc. In welding rails tho molten  thermite is poured into the joints,  and the softened rail ends are then  forced closer together. The resulting weld is very firm.

ORE DEPOSITS OF  COPPERJOUNTAIN  (Continued from last week.)  It will at first appear evident that,  if the bornite has been deposited from  later solutions, the waters, which  have .carried it into the veins, at the  same time must have affected the  composition of the rock, and in particular those components which yield  most readily to alteration, the feldspar and the mica. It is probable,  also, that the same waters must have  contained in solution, some other  mineral, such as calcite and silica,  traces of which must be found connected with the bornite. But such is  not the case. Everywhere thejbornite  appears completely surrounded by the  feldspathic element of the rock or by  the mica; and'when it happens - to be  in contact with some calcite,. the relation seems to be purely accidental.  The fact that none of these charac-^  ters have been displayed by the numerous sections which have been studied,  and also the complete .absence of any ���������  cracks having relation to the, introduction of the bornite, .warrants the:  conclusion that the latter is an original -  mineral in the rock to the same extent'  as the mica and the feldspar. "  The occurrence of copper ore (under  such conditions and in connection with ���������  a pegmatite,   is  unusual.  vIt is well  known that copper ores seem, as a rule,'  to  accompany basic eocks, such as;-  diorites "or  gabbros.   In  the  recent"  years, however, some interesting cases  have been noted where the ores .of*  copper   not only  accompany   acidic-  rocks,   but  also display most' of the  characteristics which   belong to  tin  veins.   Although up .to the present,  not more than five or- six such exam-,  pies have been found, they are enoughc'  to serve as links between' the two ex-"  treme types of- the jold classification.  At the same time it is possible to tr-a'ce  a graduation according to" the nature -  of the rocks which are favored by the  presence ��������� of copper   ores.   " Starting  from the gabbro and diorite of Canada,  and passing through the basic granite  of Butte and the biotite-muscovite-  ���������  granite of Cornwall and Telemark, we  reach at last the pegmatite in British '  Columbia which has~formed the subject of this paper.  Such a transition has been pointed  out by Professor Yogt, who paid ���������  special attention to certain veins in  Telmark where the copper ore displays  all the characteristics of cassiterite,  the most important being a gradual  transformation from granite to greisen  near the veins. The same character,  as is well-known, is exhibited to a high  degree by the veins of Cornwall, where  tin is associated-withc copper.- As the  veins of Copper mountain display the  presence of some tourmaline and some  fluorite* it appears that there is a good  analogy between themand those which  havebeen referred to above. Furthermore, the fact that the copper ore  occm-s here in pegmatite, rather than  incgranite, adds to the interest of the  occurrence.  The third topic to be set forth, is the  presence of gold and platinum in the  pegmatite. The pegmatite of Copper  mountain deserves additional attention, since it displays a small quanitty  of native gold, and also a still more interesting mineral, the sperrylite. The '  arsenide of platinum was first found  in 1889 by F. L. Sperry, chemist of the  Canadian Copper Company, and was  subsequently studied and named by  Wells and Penfield. The two minei-als  occur in fiakes in the bornite and in  the chalcopyrite. They also enter the  orthoclase, where they form minute  particles which give the impression  that the two minerals are in the rock  as original components.  It has been difficult to determine  the sperrylite; but a treatment by  various acids gave some particles which  presei'ved the brilliant luster. Furthermore, a small crystal of sperrylite  was detected in the middle of a flake  of mica, where it typically displays  the outline of a pentagonal dodecahedron. This fact is important,  since it shows that the sulphide of  platinum may occur in the same manner that gold does, as in the pegmatite  of Passagem, Brazil, which has been  described by Hussak. In the present  case gold also occurs, which strengthens the analogy between the pegmatite  of Passagem and Copper mountain.  The preceding observations can be -  summarized thus:  1. The possibility of the alteration  of bornite, to chalcopyrite in some ore  deposits,   as   contrasted with the re-  verse process which is certainly more "  frequent, and which is termed'enrich-  ':  rnent. ������������������      ��������� ' '���������  2. The occurrence of bornite as an    '  original mineral in a pegmatite dike. "  3. The occurrence of native gold and "''  sperrylite with the bornite and its associated chalcopyrite, and of sperry^  lite in biotite. The presence of a  platinum mineral in an acidic rock is  of especial interest.
