The .Steamer   Lytton   started  her second trip Io'LmPoi tc-'t his  upon  _     inoi n-  iny about (] o'clock. .She.'had on boaid  about 20 tons of ft eight for the Fnaich  Creek Company and carried several  passengers. The freight rate for the  trip is about one cent a pound and the  passenger faio to LaPorfe -SiV Soine-  whaf (lifleient this fiom flic days of  the Foity-Nine. The. Lvtlon expects  on this occasion to steam right through:  then unload, return, and go up'again  with the. rcuiiaiuder of the company's  11 eight.  ,'Jhe crow of the steamer is the same  as on Hie last occasion except that tin's-  Hip it is in charge of Captain Coie.

The   ledge has  been tiaced on to (lie. adjoining  claii'n.'  owned by Ace   Jlillman, where   it also  shows free gold.  Another claim that is creating something of a'sensation  is   the   Clondyke.  located by Graham and partner in   the  Glacier, basin about   two   miles   from  (own. There are twenty inches of clean  ore that assays 71S ounces in silver and  a few dollars  in gold. .The   men   who  struck it are  caipentcrs   who  thought  they"would try their luck  at  prospecting.    They weie gone just two days.  ��������� The truck road to the Silver Cup will  be linished in a few day::, and ore ship,  m.Mils will commence inside of a week.

of fish, a demand for lumber: an in-

The government crop hulletin for the  middle of August, probably the most  impoitant of the year, was issued last  Saturday. The' estimated yield is  21,284,274 bushels of wheat; the barley  yield is given as 3,(114,10$ bushels, and  oats total 12..">17,112 bushels. This yield  of.'wheat at over $1 a bushel���������or 38  cents? per busliel over what it was a  year ago���������will he a splendid thing I'or  the farmers ji'iiel advance the general  trade of the country.'  What the'harvest means to the  farmer is figured out by the Globe as  follows: The estimates of the wheat  production in '.Manitoba this season  range round 21,000,000 bushels, or  6,<XK>,000 more than in m With I hi*  incie.'ise,', if wheat \loes not advance  any =ore than it has already, it, would,  mean $o,l(X).(KX) in the pockets of Manitoba farmers for the increased production expected this year, while for the  . balance of t he crop of lS.OOfl.OOO bushels,'  with I he present advance over last year  they would receive .^(i.SlO.fXXJ more  than in ISiXJ, making a total of $11,1)10',-  (XX) more money foi the .Manitoba  .wheat crop this year, than last year.  Iu Ontario the price of wheat being ������i  cents' per busliel higher than a year  ago it. might. ,be figured out that on  20,(XX),(XX) bushels of. sound "wheat,  which is a low estimate, the farmeis  of this piovince would receive $."),0(X',-  fXXJ more for Iiheir wheat, than for the  'Oft crop. This makes a total of, $10,-  !M0, (XX) increase iu the value of, the  wheat crop of Manitoba and Ontario  over last. year, owing to the increased  production and tlie'eiih.inced value of  the cereal.

Prof. Jordan, the American seal  commissioner, has just rct.irued from'  Unalask and says the In ceding giounds  show a shrinkage of about 15 pel cent.

' The climate and'soil of the  ^district are all that could be  desired by the rancher, gardener  or fruit grower for whose  products' a profitable and rapidly increasing market exists ;  whilst to the sportsmen the  neighborhood affords game in  plenty.  The accommodation includes  igood hotels, stores, post office,  recording office,   butcher  shop  and many.private residences.  Building operations are in  full progress, and the establishment of the sawmill will tend  still more to enhance the immediate growth of this rising  town.  liliA NO'//A'.S TX OXTAIUO :  Kssux, '''ci'^'iis, fiiill.
