FUNERAL  Of the  Late H. J. Bourne, on  Monday Last.  The funeral of the late JI. J. Bourne  look place Monday, and was one of the  most largely attended seen in the city.  The coflin was most beautifully  ivrtathed in flowers the gift of loving  fiiends, and thc procession moved  fiom the late residence of deceased, on  McKenzie Ave., to St. Peter's Church,  where Rev. C. A. Procunier preached  an impressive sermon from thc text  St. John viii.. 13, '' If any man keep  my commands lie shall never see  death," in which the rev. gentleman  reminded his hearers they must stand  beiore God and give an account of the  deeds done in the body. Tliey ought  to pray and keep the sacraments. In  reference to the sad circumstances by  which they were surrounded lie would  say the souls of the righteous were in  the hands of God and that no torment  shall touch them. Those who knew  their late brother best loved him most.  He was a . faithful i friend and loving  brother. Let, them turn from the  dead to the living and so live from day  to day that when they passed away they  would be in the hands' of God and  no torment should touch them.  Hymns 3S9, 401 were sung. ,'  The sad procession then .wended its  way to the cemetery where the Rev.  Mr. Procunier said the last prayers  and the body was laid to rest.

Fernie, March 13.���������Yesterday morning, during the terrific' wind storm  which was raging through* the Koot-  eiiays, a fire broke out at Coal Creek  mines, which, spread- .with great  nipidity,'and soon caught hold of the,  tipple which spanned the creek near  .the entrance. Connected with it was  all-the costly and extensive plant for  sorting and cleaning the'feoal, consisting of elevators, belts, hoppers, etc.  It will' take at least six'.montlis to  procure duplicates of the complicated  machinery and have it set up.  The splendid power house containing thc dynamos, which furnished all  the power to operate thc hauling and  cutting of th.- coal, thc lighting of the  mines and pumping of water from the  lower'workings, has fallen a victim to  the flames. This' will unfortunately  mean the almost entire closing of Coal  Creek mines until the new tipple and  power house can be constructed.

M., iu tlio Mining  jMaKazino.) '  The Camborne district, situated in  the Lardeau .division of -the West  Kootenay mining district, British Columbia, is fast coming to the front as  ii mining centre. .Jneluding-" the  watershed of Fish River and.its num-  ��������� .erous tributary creeks, thc district  comprises an ureii' of ,mineralized  country some ton miles long by live  wide,'rich in gold, silver,' lend and  .copper. r  The district lies in one of the most  rugged and picturesque portions of  the.Selkirk mountains, which rise to  ���������altitudes of from 5,000'to 8,000 feet  abovethe sea. The' summits of the  higher peaks, crowned with glaciers  and perpetual snow, yifVord scenic  ���������efVects of grandeur and beauty surpassed by few, if,any, regions'of the  ���������'United States or Canada. ,r  , The district'can be easily reached  .from Arrowhead, the terminus of the  Arrowhead branch of the Canadian  , Pacific'Railway, 2S miles, south .of  ���������Revelstoke, a starion on the main line'  .of'the Canadian J'acilic. From Arrow-,  '.head,'a'steamer runs up the northeast  .arm of Arrow lake for nine , miles to  \Beiiton; from thence, there is a ,'daily  .stage to Camborne, six miles'",distant.  .Steamers of the Canadian Pacific Rail-  .road also run- from Arrowhead to  Robson, a distance of 122 miles/ where  they connect with the railway to Nelson, Trail and points in the, United  States. .       n    '    ;    -   "  .  The smaller vaIIcys.aredeep,knarrow  .'nnd y-shaped ;* the larger, steep walled  ��������� and U-bh.iped.     These valleys divide  ' the district into n number  of  inoiin,  .tain ridges having a general norrh-  'westerly and'southeasterly direction,  ���������with offsetting 'idges tit right angles.  'While the topogriiphiu.il ftntnres of  ;,the district aie maiul) due to the  ���������erosion of a region of uplift'by aqueous  action, tbeie'is/m abundance of evidence to indicate lhat, these features  have bei-n ruudi/ii d by the action of  ice.      The   l.uge   valleys   have   been  ���������changed from V-shaped valleys to U-  sluiped oi is. and their beds scoured  ' and,deepened s-u.tlmt lhe tributary'  valleys aie overhanging valleys; Transported boulders ine scattcied ever the  .mountain ddes and on the ridges; the  rock .-infaces aie scoied, fluted and  striated.  Mohawk cki:i;k.  At the head of ^Mohawk cieek and  .its north fork are many boulders of  porpliyritic granite, which have been  brought down by the ice fiom the  granite belt, some twenty miles to the  north. "  The valleys and mountain sides are  ���������covered with a dense growth of  valuable timber, of which   pine,   hemlock,  Iir, and giant cedar are thc most  important.    The   undergrowth   is  dense  ���������up to an elevation of  5,000  feet and.  owing to the heavy precipitation, the  irocks, where exposed, are covered with  moss. These features make prospecting  exceedingly difficult.  The rocks of the  district  are composed mainly of inagnesian and clilor-  . itic schists, cut  by   a  greyish-green,  ^���������ellow  weathering  schistose  diabase,  lying between somewhat broad bands  of green schist and with graphitic slate,  near the ore bodies.  " Jn   width  and  ���������" continuity this zone is  somewhat ir-  jegular   owinp-  to   the   green   schist  Alluded to above, which in some places  ���������divides it into a number" ot   subordinate bands; but it is  easily traceable  ficross  the  country  for  many   miles. |  This belt of schists is   known  as   the  ���������central mineral belt.  To the northea.-t. at the head of  Pool and Lexington creek-; and on  Bovd and Kelly creek.-", is n belt of  lime-tone in which occur the ore  bodies of the dyke series���������the second  .inmoralized -/one. Thy bolt runs with  considerable regularity in a northwesterly and southeasterly direction, and  is traceable for a long distance. The.  ore.- in this zone are mostly argentiferous gnlena with .-oine blend, tetra-  hedrite, chalcopyritc ami pyrile, with  quartz, calcite, siderite and some  tericite as ganguc. Some of the ores  carry high value-, in silver, while  other.- are large low-grade ore deposits.  .MAMMOTH CKOU'.  Little work has been done on this  series of ore deposit.-, with the exception of thc Mammoth group, at the  liead   of  Lexington  creek,   near   thc  extracting ore and making a rawhide  trail down the mountain to the wagon  road, which runs up the Fish river  valley from Camborne. It is the intention of the owners to ship ore from  a four-foot load, containing argentiferous galena'and tetrahedrite, said to  average $200 a ton. Some thirty tons  of ore have already been sacked, ready  for shipment when the trail is completed.    '  . In'the central mineral belt there are  two'series of .veins, traversing the formation, the-main''series liaving a  strike parallel tb the enclosing schists  aiid'the^ther cutting the schists in  both strike and dip. The veins,of the  main scries are for the most part large,  reaching a width of twenty feet in  some places; but'those are not so well  defined as those of the cross scries,  being in-many places' frozen . to the  schists. ' ..TliCv cross series of .veins are  clear-cut fissure veins having widths  varying from five to twenty-five feet of  clean quartz, separated from both  hanging uud foot wall by.a well-defined  gouge. 1 iv tho Camborne.district thei  first series of veins has not been opened up to any'' extent, though much  work has beenr done ,oil the second  or cross series., The veins do 4<not  maintain an even -width throughout  their course, but are more or less lenticular, both in length' and depth. At  ,the point where these veins intersect  therlirst series or other''veins of the  cross series having a different strike,  the ore spreads out to greater widths  and is almost always of liigher value  in metallic content; this increase in  values is-not confined__to_the immediate neighborhood, of the* intersection,  but extends along tlfe veins for" some  distance on either side.   '   ���������   ���������  TWO, DISTIXCT  CLASSES.  'There-are two distinct classes of ore  in the Camborne district : Argentiferous galena carrying more or less gold,  and free milling gold quarts, carrying  considerable iron pyrites and small  quantities of lead and zinc suphides.  There is no conclusive evidence as to  the age of these two classes of veins  The galena,vein in the Oyster-Criter-  ian is evidently.younger than the gold  quartz vein which it cuts; but it, in  turn,' is cut by a fault parallel to,that  occupied by the JCv.i No. 2 vein. It is  probable, therefore, that the gold veins  are, not all of the same age ; some aie  probably older and some;- newer than'  the galena .vein,'in which case they  may all have been formed during, one  period of miueialization, butat dirler-  ent stages. Little development work  has been done on the galena veins'  themselves, nut the work dune on the  gold veins proves them to be continuous in both length and depth. The  chaiaciei of tbe oie remains un-  chanired at the deepest point below  the surface outcrop thus far attained,  which in the Eva mine is some seven  hundred feet. '  A STKlKr.VG KESK.M rU-A-NTE.  One feature of the ore bodies in this  district is their striking resemblance  to the great "Mother Lode'1 of California. The veins in the Camborne  district have the same banded structure (on the "'Mother Lode'' called  ribbon rock), the same character of  sulphiirets, the same kind of graphitic  slate accompanying the veins, with  occasional fragments in the ore itself;  and the same characteristic crushed  quartz and graphitic siate g .uge. The  only ditl'erence is that*, the Camborne  .veins contain more lead and zinc sulphiirets than do these of tlie "Mother  Lode."      ' - (  thf, hi;atrk;e gkoui'.  Tbe Beatrice group of claims, situ  ated at the head of the north fork ot  Mohawk creek, about six and a half  mile? southeast of Camborne, at an  elevation of 7-,000 feet above -sea level,  has been developed to a considerable  extent hy means of tunnels on the  vein. There are two distinct scries of  veins on this'property. One carries  free milling (-old quartz ; the other  consists of a four-foot width of quartz,  heavily minerali/ed with medium to  line grained galena and iight brown  zinc blende intimately mixed, with a  considerable percentage of fine-grained  tetrahedrite and pyritc in band-'  through the ore. This latter vein i.s  the only one. being worked at. present;  the ore is sacked and rawhided to  Camborne and from thence shipped by  wagon to J3eaton. This ore is said to  carry '1- o/.s. gold, 250 o/s. silver, and  20 per cent. lead.  thi: srr.vcu i>or,r���������\p. niton-,  doing northwest along the stiikc of  the belt, the next group is  the Silver  prospecting ,, and development,1 work  has been done on this property.1, Five  well-defined veins of'the cross-series  have been' prospected; one ,o������ these,  the Silver Dollar, vein, contains considerable 'argentiferous galena (probably the continuation of the Beatrice  vein), while the others are free milling  gold quartz of good workable grade.  All these veins are -traceable for over  3,000 feet in length and vary in width  from a few feet to more than . twenty.  The main development work on this  property-- has been confined to the  Silver Dollar vein, and consists pf a  cross-cut to the vein and several  hundred feet of drifting. The' crosscut is" now being driven into 'the  mountain side to intersect with the  other, veins running'parallel to' the  Silver Dollar, vein, which on, the surface are about 100 feet apart. '.This  cioss-cut .tunnel, will give depths  ranging from 300 to over 700 feet  below tlie vein outcrops.  In the face of. an open cut on the  Silver Dollar vein, the lead 'is divided  into two distinct portions!, 'The foot-  wall portion consists of about two feet  of steel galena, containing some bunds  of iron'pyrites and assaying ��������� .12 oz.  gold, 39.7 oz.' silver and 2] per cent,  lead. The hanging-wall portion consists of about thirty inches of gold  quai tz, assaying 3.12,ozs. gold in' the  shape of free gold and iron pyrites.  COLOKADO   AKD  DV.L   KEY.    ������'  On the Colorado and Del Rey property about two miles northwest, two  parallel veins of gold quartz have been  opened up by surfacetrenches. ,These  veins are sonie fifteen feet in .width  and carry high values in gold ; from  average samples weighing about five  pounds,. taken across the vein, the  Colorado vein yielded by assay. 13.21  ozs. gold, and the Del Rey 2.28 ozs.  The quartz does not show much free  gold to,the eye, but it is of a good  character'and contains a, considerable  percentage of decomposed iron pyrites.  Located one mile north of the town  of Camborne is the ���������   . *  '     .     OYSTEK-CKITEKIOX   .Ml*\*i'*'  now being worked by the Great Northern Mines Co., Ltd. This and the Eva  mine, which is the north-western extension of the Oyster-Critejio'n. aie  best developed mines in this cli-trict;  each is equipped   with  a  ten 'stamp  Here the lode consists of a belt of  lead-gray, carbonaceous schist, traversed bv several well-defined quartz veins"  which are partly fissure-fillings and  partly" leplacement of the country  rock by vein matter. In place:, the  quartz contains isolated fragments of  the graphitic country rock, around  which the gold is often concentrated;  consequently these portions of the ore  aie often rich. The gold is frequently  visible to the unaided eye, sometimes  in coarse .particles: all of the ..vein  matter will pan gold. The veins also  carry siderite and tlie sulphides of  iron, lead and zinc.' The Criterion  tunnel on this property rims in a  northerly direction -for 135 feet, at  which point was encountered a galena  vein five feet wide lying between two  slips, with a gouge and slickensided  walls. Following the galena' lead for  a distance of sixty-rive feet, the drift  encountered the Criterion quartz vein,  which proved to be -faulted by the  galena vein: the eastern limb was en- j  I countered .-ome fifteen feet further on. I  The gouge on the walls of the galena  vein continued unbroken through the  quartz At this point tlie Criterion  vin is materially enriched and is said  to assay -fSO a ton. .*  At the time'of the  writer's vi-it  to  .trie Oy.iter-Criterian   property,  about  2.000 feet of work   had been  done and  the mill wa*- in -teady operation.

At'No. 5 tunnel ,011  this property, the veins and" crots  veins fornva small, clifr of' ore,'which  is exposed in the face of the mountain  ' ��������� for fifty feet. This entire mass is high  grade ore, assaying over $50 per ton;  the'ore in a'winze connecting No. 5  tunnel with No". 4, is said to assay $75  a ton, and contains niiich free gold  visible to the unaided eye. The gold  is often concentrated along the walls  and around the inclusions in the vein,  probably owing to the wall rocks and  included fragments  being highly car-  , boiiaceous. In the Highland Mary  eliiifton this property some'very high  ,��������� grade ore is found, much of it showing  considerable free gold and iron'sul-  lihurets, .which latter' arcsaid to run  rs high as. $2,000 to the ton, The mill  '   Monging'to "the  property, is  located  ���������_ on the north side of  Pool Creekj near  that  of  the 'Oyster-Criterion, and' is  connected with', the mine by  means of  '    an aerial wire tramway '4,200 in length.  ���������'   An electric plant rViilso installed  at  "the mill  for  furnishing light to  the  mines .and   buildings; there .are ���������.four  'concentrator's.", 'The'entire  plant', is  also   operated   by .water power, from  Pool creek."

In the Copper Dollar aiid Kingston  " Groups, adjoining 'tlie Eva mine on  the northwest, 'the ,.vein outcrop is  quite remarkable both for its size and  manner of occurrence. There are two  veins traversing1 th'es'e'properties, one  of which isc traceable on the Copper  'Dollar group for over f,200 feet'without a break. The, outcrop occurs in a  'vgully! down, which'the flow of water  has cut away, the softer w.ill rock,  leaving the quartz standing like a wall  , 'in some places ovei ten feet in height.  In width this outcrop varies fron'i ten  to twenty feet. In a tunnel which has  been driven T20 fe'et^on this vein, the  lead has a very slight dip to the east,  is of a banded structure and shows  some very  line examples of  slicken-  ���������   .sides,'   the   quartz   being   almost   as  smooth and polished as a piece of plate  -glass. "The ore" so far,developed is low  grade, but on account  of the size of  the vein  and its exceptionally, favorable location fur mining; should prove  of considerable economic importance.  cambokxi: Girom*.   ,  On the \ve=t  side of  Fish   River, on  the northwestern continuation of this  ,* same mint nil /-"U*.- and oil the north  side uf Men bin :ck Creek, io located the  Carnliorne group,. The main work on  thi- pioperty has been con lined to the  Gold finch claim at  an  elevation  of  ,  sixteen hundred feet above Fish river.  1 Some very rich ore was discovered on  this claim, the vein matter consisting  of white watery quartz with sulphides  of lead, zinc and iron sprinkled  tluough it. The gold occurs with the  sulphides, particulaily along the zinc  blende, and also in the quart/, itself.  Howevei, the vein on this claim is not  as legular or denned as on other properties visitod"by the, writer and exploitation , is moie difficult. A ten  stamp mill was built near the mouth  of Menhiniek creek and connected  with the mine -by means of a wire  train way, the upper portion of which  was destroyed by foieot (ires in  August. 1904. An, electric plant, for  supplying light and power for electric  di-ills was also located near the mill,  both being run by  water powt r'from  , Menhiniek crock. Owing to b.id management and thc fire above referred to  this mine is now idle.  IXIH.l'KXDI.Xfii:   GROIH-.  To the northwest of the Camborne  group is'thc Independence group, on  which theie are two vein."- running at  an angle with each other. These  veins have been developed by surface  prospecting and a cross-cut tunnel.  One vein is fifteen feet wide in the  cross-cut and shows considerable iron  and zinc sulphides; the average value  of the ore is said to be about $10 per  ton. The other vein was encountered  in the-cross-cut tunnel a short distance from its beginning. A short  tunnel has been driven on this vein  and some very . rich ore encountered.  The'gold occurs as free gold, both in  the quartz and associated with the  pyrites., This vein, as previously  stated, runs at an angle with the  fifteen foot lead; at the intersection of  the two veins there should lie a considerable body of high-grade ore. This  intersection, having regard to the distance   in the   cross-cut   between   the  veins and the angle they niake one  with the other, cannot be far away.  On the surface, 'along the 'outcrop of  tlie'fifteen foot vein,are several masses  of quartz float in which free gold is  easily visible, and .in'the open cuts on  the veins'all the ore pans well. ���������  This district has not hitherto received from prospectors and'mining  men the attention Which its mineral  indications warrant, for several rea-'  sons.. The mountain being 'covered  with   heavy   growth   of   timber and  ��������� f>'        , '. .  underbush, and the rocks to a large  extent with 'moss, traveling and prospecting, are,, exceedingly dillicult.  Early prospectors considered' this' a  silverMead "district'and so paid little or  no attention to the outcrops of'gold  quartz until in recent years, when prospectors familiar with gold ores open-  ed'upsonie of the veins. In'view,of  some of the high assay values obtained  from thc silver-lead ores and regardless  of the cost of mining and'transporting  the ore to "the smelters, many of' the  early prospectors held  their claims at  suclvexhorbitant' figures that capital  was deterred from coming in. However a change is now taking place.  The district is more accessible, and  the construction of roads and-trails  greatly facilitates prospecting and the  d eve 1 op 111 en t .of.thc ore.bodies._j_.abor  and supplies .arc obtainable in Camborne, or can ber brought in 'from the  outside at reasonable prices. The  average;'wage paid in the district  'rahges'fi'bni'$2!f>0* to $4.00 per day "of  eight hours, according to the class of  wark. , - , ,,  ���������The country is an ideal one for mining; there is ample timber for all purposes,'and'all tlie, creeks carry'water  suflicie'nt not* only for mills'and dwellings but for power purposes'also.  About two miles soiith of Camborne,  where Pish 'river.* J'runs through a  canon, there -is- a. -.yater power of  several thousand horse power. Here  could be established 'an electric power  plant sullicient not only to operate an  electric riiihoad from Beaton to Cam-,  borne and Ferguson, on Trout Lake,  but also to supply power and light to  all the mines in the district.' 'If this  were done, it would,be. only a few  vears before this district would ��������� rank  among the niost important camps in  thc Northwest.  RAILWAY  NEWS  RAILWAY LEGISLATION.

The first p o-  posal is for a subsidy of five thousand  acres a mile for two hundred miles  and ten thousand for the rest to extend from Vancouver via Kamloops  to.the Yellow Head*Pa*-s.

J3.  u Baiumster, Solicitor, Etc   ;  First Street. Revelstoke, B.O  ZheAkootemyfthail  SATURDAY,  MARCH   18, 1905  A GREAT MINERAL ZONE.  The article which' we publish in  another column] by Mr., Emmons,  a mining expert of high reputation,  ���������on the Fish Creek camp, full justifies the-high opinion held   of 'this  section   by   the   mining   men   who  have been best acquainted  with it.  The opinion formed'"by   Mr.  Emmons, as   the  result  of   his   visit  there, ought to do good-service by  '"drawing   attention' of  outside  investors to the grand   field  for  exploitation offered   on   Fish   Creek.  And what is true of Fish   Creek is  true of the mineral belt extendinji  from the lower hardenu to the Big  Bend.    In places the mineral zone  is  hidden  by the   overlying "limestones.as where it crosses the railway  line near Albert Canyon, but there  is every rea������on to believe   that   by  the exploration of the schists underlying   these   limestones   as  good  mineral prospects will be found as  have    been    revealed    by   surface  prospecting.  MINING LEGISLATION.      -  No country in the civilized world  has suffered so much injury to its  mining industries from bad   legislation   as   has   British ' Columbia.  The assessment bill, as relating to  mining, and which was put through  by the   McBride government  last  week, is a disgraceful piece of legislation.     It makes mining taxation  retrospective and   was  apparently-  devised to meet the case of a company which was fighting   the  government in the courts.     There  is  neither justice nor  sense  in  such  legislation.       Tlie   leader   of   the  opposition,      J.    A.    Macdonald,  rendered    great    service   to    the  mining    intereste    by    the    manner   in    which    he    exposed    the  unjust and   detrimental .character  of the   legislation,   but   all   to   no  purpose.      McBride   and   his  colleagues had to have that  bill   and  like dumb driven cattle their  supporters and the socialiat members  walked into the lobby  in   support  of it.   The effect of such legislation  on the mining interests of the province cannot fail   to   be   seriously  detrimental, and then   we   wonder  why capital is   not  invested   to a  larger extent in   the  development  of the rich mineral resources of the  country., "  The people of British Columbia  will back r up an}: ��������� government,  Liberal or Conservative, that has  the backbone to tell" Mr.'Morse  that if his company does" not keep  faith with-this province and start  construction at(tlns end, instead of  getting right-of-way free the .company will have to pay $50 an acre  for all land .required, for right-of-  way and railway purposes if the  line is not started ' within six  months. '   ���������  The GrandTrunk has got to get  to the Pacific. The western portion of its lines is useless otherwise  and now that the Grand Trunk is  trying to hold up the province it is  up to B. C: to give Mr. "Morse a  little of his own medicine. "If the  worst comes to the worst this province pan build its own end of the  road and prohibit the Grand Trunk  from getting any right-of-way,what-  ever to the Coast; That is the  stand that.' should be definitely"  taken.       .,   <   ��������� ��������� -       > '  It is up to the solid seven members from British Columbia to  bring this matter up in the Commons and have it threshed out, and  it is the bounden duty of the Laurier Government to^ see that the  Grand Trunk keeps to its contract  and carries it out in its integrity  so far as British Columbia is concerned. If it doesn't, there should  be no more mealy mouthed business about it, but the charter  should be cancelled and the dominion government should' take in  hand the construction of the road  from coast to coast.  A company that will try to hold  up the people, as the Grand Trunk  is now doing through Mr. Morse,  must be watched most closely and  its operations hedged in with the  strictest legislation, for if it is going  to try and cinch the people before  the road is built some idea can be  formed of the unscrupulous tyranny  which that company will endeavor  to exert once the public comes to  use the road.    -  Now  is  the   time   to   teach the  company that the people recognise  their   rights,   are   determined    to  maintain them, and   to  make  the  company live up to its contract or  get out.    "Little thievf-s are put in  the stocks.    Big thieves go flount-  ingin silks and satins." Mr. Mor.=*e  is attempting to burglarise British  Columbia in the  most disgraceful  fashion, and he should he  treated  as  any  other   highwayman,   who  seeks to bulldoze a government  or  legislature into  giving   away   the  public assets for  nothing.     There  has been a great deal too much of  that sort of thing in the  past and  it i.s time to atop it.  The secretary then read a letter  from Mr. George Gibson enclosing a  largely signed ' petition objecting to  the removal of Dr. Chipperfield ,from  the medical staff of the hospital and  after'Some discussion the following  resolution   was unanimously carried :  r.. '  "That the petitions received , with  regard to replacing,Dr., Chipperfield  on the hospital staff be filed, and that  the petitioners be'notified through  Mr. Gibson that the ' Board do not  consider that tlie services of four  doctors (are required or that the  finances'of the hospital can stand the  expense of four,,'doctors, and that a  third doctor, resident at Arrowhead,  litis been appointed, Dr. Chipperfield  having refused, to accept that appointment when offered to him by the'  Board. And, Mint if at any time the  petitioners have , any,' complaint  against the present'stall' the Hoard  will be ready ti listen to any complaint that may be presented through  their proper representatives , on this  'Board, and that in future no petition  will be received -unless presented  through the proper representatives'' of  the petitioners on tlie'Bonrd."

Years ago, when the bodies were removed from the Cimotiere des Innocents at Paris, the ' common pits in  winch great numbers of the bodies had  been interred together were found,to  contain musses of a grayish white  soupy substance. The matter was not  very well understood at that time, but  it is now known that the remains of  the dead are under certain conditions  transformed into such a material, either wholly or in part, wliich has been  named "adipocere." It is a true am*  monlacal soap, being a combination of  fatty acids with ammonia.  Bodies that are exposed to the action  of water percolating through the soil  are most apt to undergo this species of  transformation. Inasmuch as adlpo-  cera is not perishable under ordinary  circumstances, corpses thus changed  very often retain their form Indefinitely. Now and then they are dug up, and  ignorant writers in newspapers refer  to them as wonderful instances of  "petrifaction."  . He  Wouldn't   .111ms   I'mycr.        .

There are few diseases that inflict  more torture than rheumatism and  there is probably no disease for which  such a varied and useless lot of remedies have been suggested. To say  that it can be cured is, therefore, a  bold statement to make, but Chamberlain's Pain Balm, which enjoys an  extensive sale, has met with great  success in the treatment of this disease. One application of Pain Balm  will relieve the pain, and hundreds of  sufferers have testified to permanent  cures by its use. AVhy suffer when  Pain Balm affords such quick relief  and costs but a trifle?
