First Thought :Ore.
A report'comes from Colville
stating that au assayer there.clan-
destinely took samples from a car
of ore from tbe Eirst Thought mine
that was passing througbt 'tliat
city. The assayer was surprised
to get results of from $2,000 to
$-1,000 from the ore.
In view of the reports that $20
has been the' best average taken

in the lower levels,' have created
great excitement in the Orient district,  where over 300-:claims are
under development. ,   .
Between the surface and the
500-foot level iu the First Thought
reckoning on a basis of 1,500 feet
in length of the claim; experts estimate that the known values in tho
ore deposit under development will
run more than $20,000,000 in gold.

This trail was  hardly more ihan a well trodden footpath and was only wide enough to permit a single rider upon it. One side  of It sloped up at an angle of almost  elgnfy degrees. The other formed the  Bide of a precipice that dropped a  sheer 200 feet to tbe sandy ravine below.  As he rode over the trail, lost In  thought. Warren was dead to external  Bounds. He did not notice the fidgeting of his horse nor his frightened  ���������whinnies. He bad no intimation what  ever that any one was approaching  along the trail from tlie opposite direction. 'And yet not a hundred feet  ahead of him a lit.rse and rider were  rounding the curve of the mountain.  .Neither noticed the oilier until they  were fifty feet apart.

"There's no turning about for  either of us. We'll have to manage to  pass each other. The place seems pretty wide here."  "Klip a coin for the Inner side," sug.  gesied tbe other, suddenly reaching a  band Into his pocket.  "Klglit." agreed Wa-ren, "but let's  have a look ai it first."

It fell down on  tbe trail at their feet, ringing out clear  and cold.  "Talis!" cried the city man, overcome  with excitement. His face resumed  ���������omethlng of Its natural color nnd the  old craftiness stole luio his eyes.  Warren accepted hi*-* fate nonchalantly, although he knrw that It might  Diean death for him. There **������������������",** one  thing about it. ht-we-er. that galled  ' him. He well knew Mint Henderson  was on his way to the Patterson ranch,  and It came tc s"mi as 'a rather bitter  thought that he "Iglt htire to play  the martyr nnd sncrlCre his own life  in order ���������thnt the mini,could do fi:**.

Willi a snort  of lerror the animal plunged madly  fin ward, dislodging the oilier horse  and rider nnd sending them hurtling  down and over tbe edge of I he .-precipice. I'hi'ii lie went careening down  the slope.  The breath went out of Warren as  soon as he felt himself falling, and under tbe sickening sensailon that ensued  he lost consciousness. A stinging pain  in his leg finally awoke hltn. Bruised  and bleeding, he now sat up and gazed  about him. He hud lauded In the  branches of a tree that jutted out from  the slope of the mountain. Down below on the sand be could see the form  of his borse, dead as a stone.  The Qrst thing Warren did was to  swear. Then he looked lo his leg. it  had been broken Just below the knee.,  As be started to wrap bis handkerchief  about it he heard a sound from above.  Over Ihe rim of the precipice a bushy  head wns peering.  "Hello!" it called.   "Kin ye manage  ef 1 send down a rope?"  "Sure," Warren yelled back.  A   minute  later the end of a lariat  came   whirling   down   through   space.  Warren piught  It,  marie it fast about  his body, and then, clinging lo It with  both hands, ordered the man above to  hoist away.   A  few moments later he  crawled   up   over   the   ledge  and   lay  panting for brealb at old Jem-Patter  son's teet.  "1 seen the hull thing. Bill," began  the latter as he undid ihe rope about  the man's body. "Henderson will swing  for this or I'll shoot him on sight. I  was comiu' along a mite behind him  an' I seen him Jnb the buckskin and  then scoot." Bui Warren was uncon  sclotis before the man finished speaking, and i'aiterson lifted him up on his  pony after great dilliculty and started  tlown the trail for home.  When Warren ne.xl regained con  sciousness he was lying on a bed In a  dimly lighled room. Soft hands were  bandaging his head and sootljing  words fell from the lips of their own  er. Warren opened his eyes and took  In the situation at a glance.  "Sue." he demanded Uercely. "has  that skunk been here**"  "Sh!" she murmured, touching a (in  ger to Ills lips. "He has not been here  Evidently he has skipped Hip country  Father has told me all about It���������the  honorable way in which you acted and  Henderson's treachery. You have In  deed behaved splendidly."  "Sue!" cried the man eagerly, start  Ing up.  "Be quiet." she admonished smilingly.   Then she added. "Your probation  Is over,  and  you  have come  through  It nobly."  And then Warren claimed his own.  WHAT GOOD TASTE MEANS.  Never  The  define.  Aggressive     or     Ruthless    of  Others'  Feelings,  term   good   taste   is   hard    to  Builder of the Great Wall of Chit.a.  To superstitious notions Chin add-d  the lust of luxury, his life being a  blaze of oriental niagtiilicetice. He  built a wonderful paiace. which has  been described In the lni'serial History  as having certain gorgeous annexes attached at intervals, the whole extending over a distance ot a hundred miles.  In consetpieiice of.Ills life of luxury  perhaps he became more and more a  prey to superstition, and it may be  that because ol tins lie completed the  (.'real wall. At any rate, history records that he was informed by prophecy that in time he would be over  whelmed and destroyed' by outside  enemies. So be moliili/.ed an army  of 3u(J.<'00 men to work on tbe Great  wall aud If necessary to tight In Its  behalf. Chin's design evidently was  to inclose his massive empire In a  rampart which should have the shape  of a horseshoe, with Ihe heel calks at  the ocean shore. He did not plan to  parallel the coast with a wall, doubt  less considering that seaside an ample  protection to a country vast and deuse-  ly populated. The wall Is not for  modern use. It is an ancient fossil,  tbe largest fossil on the eartb. Bui  fossils are useful and truthful. It is  a dividing line between two civlllza  tlotis and between two eras, in space  It cut off the herdsmen of the north  from the tillers of the south.-William  Edgar (Jell In Harper'*",  For instance, a woman has  ijood taste, who wearing a crimson  hat on red hair, and unconscious that  the colors of her frock fight and  that a flat coiffure is hopelessly unbecoming to square jaws, could never  be guilty of we;ring a diamond necklace over a shirt waist, directoire  gowns exaggerated to indecency, or  soiled finery and 'frocks that are not  in keeping with her income.  Good taste frowns or. lavish display, even when money is not an object; it forbids personalities in public places, loud tnlkin*? or laughing  at any ti?rv.*; it puts the ban on being  conspicuous.  Good taste is never argumentative,  unduly aggressive or ruthless of  others' feelings. To needlessly wound,  to patronize, even to be gushinglv  kind, are impossible to one who has  an inner sense of propriety. There  are people whose favors we scorn  merely because a lack of delicacy in  offering them hurts our self-respect.  Good taste frowns on malicious  scandal and hesitates to repeat even  a witticism if it carries a personal  sting. Nor does it smile on showy  talk and a monopoly of conversation.  There is small taste in a faultlessly  furnished home out of keeping with  one's income. A French drawing  room for which the hills are unpaid  after months of dunning is bad taste.  So also is a luncheon, which one can  uot afford to give, though its every  appointment would sot connoisseurs  ������gog.  Good taste in its truest senae is an  innate sense of fitness. Possessed of  it we need not fear proprieties being  outraged, though social training may  be slight.  The woman who has really good  taste never jars. Instinctively she  says the right thing and could, not be  guilty  of thoughtless  rudeness.  Good taste never boasts, avoids  daunting, never parades superior advantages, is reticent even* to a fault  about happenings and honors in her  life that others have not shared.  A CANINE HERO.  Brief Proper Names.  In the Zuyder Zee there is a bay  called Y; and Amsterdam has 'the  river Y ; while, strange to say, in quite  another part of the earth, in China,  the same brief name is given to a  town.  Elsewhere in the Flowery Kingdom,  in the province of Honan, there is a  city called U, and in France there is  a river, and in Sweden a town, rejoicing in the name of A.  Proper names of this brief nature  are r.ot, however, monopolized by  places; instances are on record where  individuals have been ' similarly  named. Some years ago there was a  shop kept on the Rue de Louvan,  Brussels, by Theresa 0, and there is  a Madame 0 in Paris who is well  known as the proprietor of a popular  cafe.  An amusing incident is recounted  in connection with the impressment  into the military service of the son  ���������>f one of the members of the 0 family. The young man could not write,  sind so signed. his name on the military papers with a cross, it not occurring to him or to any of the officials how easily he could have written his name.  Why She Was Glad.  A young Louisville man who was  out west uot long ago has returned,  telling a yarn which be admits ls not  at his own expense, but which he declares to be about one of the most Interesting experiences of even bis checkered career.  "I was walking along the street In  a western town." he said, "when sud  denly across the way I saw a Louis  ville girl whom I recognized Immedi  ately. She saw me, too. and I exiiect  ed her to bow rather coolly and distantly, as had been her wont back  home. I was considerably astonished,  therefore, when she dashed across the  street, seized me with both bands and  fairly bubbled over "in her delight. I  was so surprised. In fact, that I com  mented on it  " Tin glad to see yon. too,' I said  when 1 had mnnnged to cstrlente myself from her exuberant greeting  'but. to tell you the truth.

Vandals In St. Peter's  Let no one say that it is only, or  chiefly, the Englishman who, climbing Alps, crawling into belfries,  creeping into caverns, or invading  tombs'and churches, writes Robinson  on any inches ol available plain surface. Wandering down the nave of  St. Peter's, writes a correspondent, I  paused at the great gates of the  choir chapel, because parts of .the  spaces between the uprights are fitted  with glass, and this glass had a  strange look of "grisailie." It need  hardly be said that the Renaissance  architecture takes no note of windows, and St. Peter's .is lighted  throughout by perfectly plain uncolor-  '���������d glass in square panes. Therefore  this ancient looking darkened gray  glazing called for inspection. Its de-  s'oration proved to be the names-  names, of all tribes and tongues,  scratched upon every inch of the  glass as far as hand could reach,  crossing each other, effacing each  ���������ther, with every impertinence of  slourish of whicli handwriting is capable, and, with the names of fools,  :he dates of their folly.  T*he Story of Scotch, an Obedient and  Loyal Dog.  A most interesting as well as a most  pathetic dog story is related by Enos  A. Mills in liis book, "Wild Life on  the Rockies." Mr. Mills and his dog  Scotch were on a four days' tramp on  the summit of a -desolate and lofty  range far above the timber line, and  Mr. Mills stopped to take some photographs. The work required that he  should remove his sheepskin mittens,  which he placed in his coat pocket.  The story follows:  From-time to time as I climbed the  summit of the continental divide I  stopped to take photographs,'but on  the summit the cold pierced my silk  gloves, ancl I felt for my mittens, to  find that one of them was lost.  T stopped, put an arm around Scotch,  and told him I had lost a mitten and  that I wanted him to go down for it  to snv-5 nie trouble.  Instead of starting off willingly, as  he had. invariably done before in  obedience to my commands, he stood  still. I thought he had misunderstood  me, so 1 patted him and then, pointing down' thc slope, said: "Go for the  mitten, Scotch. I will wait here for  you."  He started for it, but went unwillingly. He had always served me so  cheerfully that I could not understand,  ancl it was not until late the next afternoon that I realized that he had loyally and at the risk of his life tried to  obey me.  My cabin, 18 miles away, was the  nearest house,, and the region was utterly wild. I waited a reasonable  time for Scotch to return, but he did  not come back. As it was late in the  afternoon ancl growing colder, I decided to go on toward my cabin along  a route that I felt sure he would follow, and I reasoned, that he would  overtake me.  When at midnight he had not come  1 felt something- was wrong. ��������� I slept  two hours and decided to go to meet  him. The thermometer showed 14  below zero.   I kept on going, and at  2 in the afternoon, 24 hours after I had  sent Scotch back, I paused on a crag  and'looked below. There in the snowy  world of white he lay by the mitten  in the snow. He had misunderstood  me and had gone back to guard the  mitten instead of to get it.  After waiting for him to eat a luncheon we started merrily toward home,  where we arrived at 1 o'clock in the  morning.  Had I not returned,' I suppose  Scotch would have died beside the  mitten. In a region cold, cheerless,'  oppressive, without food and perhaps  to die, he l.iy down by the mitten because he understood that I told him  to. In the annals of dog heroism I  know of no greater deed.  Lingering   Belief   In   Magic.  The man in the country knows better than to offend the occult-powers  by "cutting them dead," an offence  which soon bears, its own punishment. In Devonshire to this day,  when someone is afflicted with what  is known as "a white leg," a bandage  is put on the leg, and "the following  formula is repeated .nine times, each'  time followed by the Lord's "Prayer":  As Jesus Christ was walking He  saw the Virgin Mary sitting on a  cold marble stone.

"Oh, I ain't worryin'," wa3 ihe  prompt response.  "Indeed! Perhaps you won't do so  well as you think. May I venture to  inquire what you have in view?"

Are More Active In Search For  Food on the Flood Tide.  The most essentia*! thing In sea Ashing, next to tackle and bait, la a tide  table, because all marine fishes ex-  "ept the flatfish���������flounder aud fluke-  are captured more-readily at a.certain  tide. The main'cause for such Is.tJnat  fisb.nre more active In their search  for food generally on the flood tide.  Vast schools of little"*- fishes move  close into shore on the Incoming tide,  working their, way. into the smaller  bays and lulets, especially near the  edge of banks, where they feed on  the.small,crustaceans, shrimps and little minnows that'can effectually hide  from their larger enemies when the  tide is low and the large fish are unable to get at them in very shoal "waters. - *.���������  It Is a common arid interesting sight  to see- a school ��������� of wealtfisb slowly  moving in" near the surface with the  early tide. " Suddenly one, sees the  .smooth surface all In commotion. Silvery minnows leap frantically iu all  directions, looking like flashes of diamonds, (hen Instantly disnppear to certain death. A't such times anglers  should be ready with their boat  trimmed snug.-lines out floating forty  feet away,' balled with live shrimps.  Tide affects bottom feeders, though  not to such a' large extent. Fishing  from piers nnd docks an hour beforo  and'after flood Is most likely to.give  good results.

In a case of slander not long ago  Miss M had gone into the witness-  box on behalf of the plaintiff,, whose  counsel was examining her.  "Now, mada'm," Mr. Wigg, K.C., began, "please repeat the slanderous  statements made by the defendant on  this occasion just as you heard  them." -  "Oh, they are unfit for any respectable person to hear," replied Miss  M   "Then," -said the" examiner, " coax-  ingly, "suppose you just whisper them  to the judge "  She was shopping. She drifted into  the placo^ where they sell blankets.  Roll after roll was deposited and  spread out before her. Still, she listlessly asked'for more. Finally, with  brazen face, she remarked as she rose,  "Oh, well; I don't really mean to buy  any.   I was only looking for a friend."  "Pray wait a moment, ma'am," said  the attendant, sauvely; "there is one  more -blanket on the shelf. Perhaps  your friend is in that."  The Restful' Life.   -  ,"We must  live  rhythmically  If  we  would live healthfully." writes Grace  "���������Dawson In "How.to Itest and Be (tested." "'To live rhythmically we must  uot always strain lense uerves and  muscles.. We must learn to relax, that  ,we may know,bow to economize our  nervous and muscular power, so that  some pnrt of us will always be resting  while another Is at work. This Is living by the law or rhythm'. It Is tbe  secret of working 'tirelessly, resting  restfully. resisting disease, throwing  off morbid feelings, of living healthfully and feeling zest and enjoyment in  our lives."  We are living unrhythmlcally "when  we lie awake In the night with  harassed. ��������� with    anxious,    worrying  .-thoughts: when we rash to the sta  tion In great nnxlely nnd reach It In  such good lime that we catch the train  before the one we went for; whenever  we get it feeling of being 'rushed' or  ���������driven' or *tled.to stline.'"

Some Ways In Which He Differs From  the Fashionable Pets.  The common livery stable dog Is totally unlike the "powder puff" or  "toots and skigunis" dog, but his disposition is infinitely better. To lie on  a cushion and growl and snap at the  hand that would caress it Is considered  the height of,folly in the livery stable  variety.  The livery stable dog approaches you  ingratiatingly aud offers you a dirty  paw to shake. After you have shaken  ll he solemnly gives you the other.  Then he crawls up" iu your lap and  licks you on the mouth.  The livery stable canine is a most  industrious digger of holes. The theory is that he is going to lie down in  the bole he digs, but he does no such  thing. He goes and lies down right  in the middle of the sidewalk, where  people will have to step over him. He  will never get out of anybody's way.  lie even lies down Iu the middle of  the street and tries to make, carts,  wagons and automobiles avoid him.  He doesn't enjoy as large a vocabulary as the powder puff or skigums  dog. A phrase like "Does urns want  urn's itty bass?" would scare him to  death. His advantages have not been  such as to acquaint him with such  hifalutin talk, but he does know a few*  simple phrases like "Git to blazes out  of here, you darned pest!" He uuder-  stands that perfectly.  The American Youth.  If the truth were told most young  ,i.mericau men are uot especially interesting. They do not keep up their  reading. They have a national oh-  tundity when it comes to music, to art.  to literature, nor do many of them  take any of these things at all seriously. The young among them are-uot  good conversationalists. Our cleverest'  men are monologists pure and simple.  They lecture admirably. They are  boru orators along modified linos. They  are inevitable story tellers. None of  this is conversation, aud women like  conversation, like its courtesies, which  at least pretend a little interest when  their turn comes In the game. Knowledge of people and affairs outside our  own country pricks more than one  bubble about our young men.���������Anna  A. Kogers in Atlantic.

'Every sufferer from, rheumatism  wants to be,cured and to stay cured.  The prospect of the frequent return  of the trouble" is not attractive to  anybody who h'as gone through one  siege. Most treatments aim simply  to "keep down" the rheumatic poisons  in the blood. The tonic treatment by  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills has proved  by hundreds of cures that it builds  up the blood to a point that enables  it, to cast out these poisons through  the regular channels of excretion���������the  bowels, the kidneys and the skin.  When this issdone the rheumatism is  permanently cured, and as long as  the blood is kept pure and rich the  patient will be free from rheumatism.  Mr. Thomas McNeil, Richibucto, N.B.,  says���������"Permit me to bear testimony  to the worth of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills as a cure for acute rheumatism.  My son, Frederick, was subject to this  painful trouble for a period of eight  or ten years, and during this time  periodical attacks would regularly occur. His last attack was a most severe one, and the pains were excruciating in the extreme, shooting  through the various parts of his body  to sucli an extent that even thc approach of any person would cause him  to cry out with fear, and he had rest  neither day or night. Our family doctor, a man of skill and experience,  applied many remedies without avail  and could give no encouragement  other than that the warmer weather  then approaching might prove beneficial. Just at this time we noticed  where some person similarly afflicted  had been cured by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills and decided to try them. He  kept on using thc Pills, each succeeding box shoving improvement, until  he had taken ten boxes, when all  pains and aches had completely disappeared, and although his mode of  life is that of a fisherman, and consequently exposed to both wet and cold,  he has had no' return of any of the  symptoms whatever. The cure is complete, and is entirely due to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."  You can get these Pills from any  medicine dealer or they will be sent  by mail nt 50 cents a box or six boxc6  for $2.50 by the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  TYROLEAN MARKSMEN.

"Write National Drug & Chemical  Co., (Dopf., N.U.) Toronto, for free  samples.  Regular size, 50c; G for ?2.C0,  Peasant Sharpshooters and the  Way  They Are Trained.  Some idea of the accuracy of a Tyrolean crack shot may be gathered from  the fact that unless he can, standing, put five successive bullets into  a,space that can be covered by a half  crown piece at 200 yards he considers  himself in very poor form. Even then  his score may be only 20 out of a possible 30. A poor shot, though a man  who can get on the 12-inch bull every  time, may find himself credited with  a paltry five or six. It is disheartening work for a novice, even if he has  not done so badly at Bisley in former  days and proudly sported the marksman's crossed rifles on, his volunteer  tunic.  That this fancy shooting���������there is  no better name for it���������does not spoil  the Tyrolese peasant for military rifle  shooting is amply' demonstrated when  we witness an Imperial rifle regiment  on parade. It would seem as if every  man wore the green velvet balls  dangling on his breast, the Austrian  Army badge of marksmanship. But,  excellent weapon as is the Austrian  Mannlicher rifle, it is of little use at  the tiny targets of the national shooting runges.  Tho writer has had ample opportunity of studying the Tyrolese peasant  marksman at home. Every village or  cluster of villages has its own rifle  range, run by the village council, and  controlled by the state. Membership  is not obligatory, but there is on subscription attached to it, and, once a  member, the peasant may use any  rifle range throughout the country.  A further privilege is granted him after the completion of his three years'  military service���������namely, that one  of the annual three weeks' trainings with the colors as reservist  is remitted to the Standeschutz, or  member of tho National Rifle Club.  This is also an exclusive Tyrolese  privilege.  When a youth reaches the age of 18  he must attend the nearest rifle range,  whether he is a member or not', and  fire a certi.in number of shots. And  later," if he is passed for military service, he must again fire a certain  number of rounds as conscript ere he  joins his regiment. The regimental  authorities thus know the shooting  possibilities of each recruit, and these  preliminary tests are carried out with  the service rifle, of which every range  must possess a few.  Weather permitting, every range is  open for practice on Sunday throughout the year from 11 a.m. till sundown. Ammunition is supplied at  cost price, but most marksmen prefer  to supply their own cartridges, which  they fill themselves. The clerk of the  range enters every score oh an official  sheet, and a nominal charge of four  hellers (less than a halfpenny) is  made for each shot entered therein.  This pays for,the upkeep of the range,  the markers, etc.  An additional zest is given by a  weekly Gnade.ngabe (gift of grace)  from the Government, whereby. the  top scorers of the day receive two or  three shillings each as a prize. The  older men and crack shots, however,  seldom compete for these small prizes  and give their younger and poorer  comrades a chance to pay their day's  shooting expenses���������Reginald Wyon, in  Chambers' Journal.

Parliamentary repartee was ably  upheld by Lord Brougham, especially during the great reform debates  of tlie last century. On one occasion,  when anti-reformers were trying to  howl him down by imitating the  sounds made by various animals,  among which the braying of the ass  was most recurrent, he waited for a  pause and then remarked imperturb-  ably that by a wonderful disposition  of nature every animal h.'.d its peculiar mode of expressing itself and he  was too much of a philosopher to  quarrel with any of those modes.  This was no less severe than the  famous libel on the Earl of Limerick,  calling him "a thing with human  pretensions," which appeared in The  Times in 1S31 and for which the printer was fined $500 and confined for an  indefinite period in Newgute.���������Loudon Chronicle.  Has the veil of mystery that has so  long shrouded the ancient sciences  becn raised at last? Can it be that a  system lias becn perfected that reveals with reasonable accuracy the  character and disposition of an individual, and so outlines the life as  to assist in avoiding errors and taking advantage of opportunities?

Alfred Yiolette claims to have  found the .greatest deposit of mica  in the world. It is in the Peace  River canyon and inaccessible.  This is what he says :  "The mica lay in great sheets  which I could pull up with my  hands and which, standing on end,  were as broad as I am tall.  " But thpre it lies and will continue to lie worthless as a pile of  dirt until some railway company  with millions at its back penetrates  the granite walls.    I do not think  a railway will ever be bnilt from  the eastern side.    It would cost  too much to cut the line through  the thirty miles of canyon to the  mica deposits.    What is the use of  staking any   claims ?   You could  not pack enough of the mica out  on your back   to mafce it worth  while, and it would be impossible  to perform your assessment duties  on your claims.  "The only way I think the  mica could be reached by railway  would be up over the Griscombe  portage from the Tete Jaunc Cache  and along the Parsnip or in through  the Yukon from Dawson."  Don't   worry   about   something  that   you  think  may  happen  tomorrow  because you  may die tonight, and  tomorrow will find you  beyond the reach of worry.    Don't  worry over a  thing that happened  yesterday,  because yesterday is a  hundred years away.    If you'don't I  believe it just try to reach after it  and  bring it  back.    Don't worry  about anything that is happening  today, because today will last only  15 to 20   minutes.    Don't worry  about things you can't  help, because then   there   is no need  to  worry.    Don't worry   at   all.    If  you wanfe;to be penitent now and  then it won't hurt you a bit, it  will  do  you   good.     But   worry,  worry,   worry,    fret,    fret���������why,  there's neither sorrow, penitence,  strength,    penance,    reformation \  hope   nor  resolution   in it.    It's  mere worry.

Gkti.emeIv : At your  request  I  have made,a careful  examination  of the Starve Out mine and I beg  to submit the following report :  The Starve Out mine is situatod  in Skylark' camp near Boundary  creek, in the Greenwood Mining  Division of Yale district, British  Columbia.    .  Tlio property consists of three  mineral claims, the "Starve Out  Fraction," the " Km press Fraction," and,the ''.Mayflower."  ;      -ACCESSIMMTY.  The property is'reached from the  City "of Greenwood   by   a   good  wagon road. and ;sidewalk.    Part  of   the property, lies   within  the  limits- of the city.    The shipping  point on the C- P. railway is about  750 feet from the- mine, as the C.  P. R. passes the west- side of tin**-  property.    It is, about 1000   f.vt  distant,   opposite, and  higher   up  than the B. C. Copper company's  smelter, and the oro could be delivered by a bucket tram from the  portal of th? tunnel.  FORMATION  PKESEXT DEVELOPMENT.  Theieare   two   shifts   of men  working at present, with a blacksmith convenient,    ore   cars'! &nr]  rails, and the ground  prepared to  install a compressor.    The tunnel  is now in  more than 225 feet, 6  feet   wide and  7 feet high,  and  shows indications of  mineral and  will crosscut   three   veins   before  striking the vein shown in No. 1  shaft.    The installation of a~compressor   would greatly   accelerate  and lessen the cost~"of constructing  the tunnel. '  REMARKS.  Judging from the amount oflore  shipped from snch mines as tbe  Skylark, Providence, Gold_ Bug,  Strathmore, Silver Cloud, Elkhorn  and others, all within a radius of  ������- mile and in the same formation,  being parallel veins, the company  in my opinion has undoubtedly  one of the most promising mines as  exposed in the three shafts above  mentioned.
