It has plenty of building  timber and a sawmill  in operation providing  lumber at reason?oble  prices on the spot.  Its lake aftords exceptionally good trout  fishing.  It has a crown grant, purchasers of lots thus obtaining an absolutely  clear title. ' i  OUT LAKH CITY  is reached bv rail from  Revelstoke to Arrowhead, 28 miles ; thence  b,y steamer, io miles, to Thomson's Landing"; and a short  stage of 1 2 miles ; tlie^eTuifcr  journey occupying".'only 6 hours,  through magnificent mountain  and lake scenerv.  Well-known     mining     promoters and -capitalists1 already  have their   representative's   on  the,  ground,    and    it    i.s   , no  boomer's dream to sav that be-  fore another six- months Trout  Lakk Cirv will  be a bustling-  centre of business and the principal town in this treasure-laden  Lardeau, the new centre of attraction   for   the   best   mining  (enterprise,    skill    and    capital  which   British    Columbia    has  I magnetized within her borders.  The climate and  soil of the  district are all   that   could   be  .desired by therancher.gardener  ior    fruit    grower    for    whose  products a profitable and rapidly   increasing   market   exists ;  whilst  to   the   sportsmen    the  neighborhood affords game in  .plenty.  Tlie accommodation includes  good hotels, stores, post office,  recording office, butcher shop  and many private residences.
