He stated  that some  activity had   recently  been exhibited by the Great Northern railway in connection with the  V. V. & E. line between the coast  and the Boundary.

Tiie wise man of East Aurora  says that a saint is a steeplejack  upon miraged minarets.  One of tho best storied Sanator  Billy Mason ever told, and ho told  some good ones, was of his going to  a   town   in   southern   Illinois   to  speak at a politicial rally.    Arriving about noon ho went to a barber shop,  to  be shaved.    As tho  negro barber was lathering him ho  described  enthusiastically   to   the  senator the address he had hoard  that morning, delivered by a well-  known   politician   of   tho bloody-  shirt type   The barber declared it  to be tho most eloquont discourse  he had ever heard.    The   orator  talked two hours, but the audience  would willingly havo listened another hour.    It was wonderful, a  masterly effort.  "What did ho talk about?" asked the senator. "What was tho  subject of his address?"  The subject replied tho negro,  Well, now���������or���������he didn't just  say."  Most of people do not repent  until they are found out, or have  grown too old to be wicked.  No substitute has yet being  found for fresh air and exercise,  and play is essential to health.  TnE man who sleeps late in the  morning is a poor risk for a life  insurance company. That is why  some companies will not take  chances on an actor.  Hun says that Protestantism is  sects which have taken the petticoats off of the saints and put them  on their pastors. Ho also says  that it is any ono of fifty-seven  varieties of hate.  Nothing thrives well, says Bur-  bank, that is not well loved, except bull-meoso, cockloburs and  groundhogs. Evidently love is  the elixir of life, but in too large  doses it sometimes proves fatal.  The day   of the petticoat has  passed away, and in its place we  havo   tlio short skirt and  bettor  hoisnry.     Since   tho   abbreviated  skirt became  fashionable   women  aro wearing better shoes and stockings.   It has boon said that today  many a woman  wears a pair of  stockings that cost as much as the  balance of her raiment.   Just like  tho Mexicans who wear hats that  cost more than all the rest of their  suit,  spurs that cost  more than  their   boots,   and   saddles   worth  double as much as a horse.  One half of mankind censure  what they practise, the other half  practise what they censure, and the  balance say and do as they ought.  The more you expand your  lungs, the less you will contract  colds.  Since I heard that story, a good  many years ago, it has  come to  my mind many times, as the most  fitting    commentary    on     many  things.    How many novels I have  read, how many poems and learned  treatises,    how    many    speeches,  political, religious and banqueting  I have   listened   to,   how   many  conversations I have heard,   in a  word how many a long and tedious  fabric of words I have noted, excellent perhaps in style, but as to  the gist and point of the matter, as  to what it was all about, the word-  smith "didn't just say."  Man is not yet created.  We are now only in the stow and  hubbub of the making.    If you go  into the kitchen when the cooks  are getting ready a great feast you  will find yourself in the midst of  confusion and litter; out of this  shall  come the splendid banquet,  with browned fowl, offset by snowy  napory   and   gleaming silver,  all  order and  courtesy,   fringed with  laughter.    If you'inspect a house  that is  building you will seo but  scaffolding "and  rubbish. "If you  bite into an apple that i.s green you  will havo your teeth sot on  edge  for   your   pains.    If   you    have  known  tho statesman only when  ho was at tho ago of fifteen you  will  find it hard  to   believe his  poiso and power.  A plague on you !    Wait!  It will take us a thousand years  perhaps to breed that perfect man  that typo of woman.   Our. cities  are all temporary;   wait until  wo  tear them down and rebuild.   Our  continent landscape gardening has  hardly commenced.    Our science  is just learning to walk.   Our religion is still lisping and has not  learned to speak.  Don't hurry ub. We move slow.  Come back in a century or so and  we'll show you something.  The average   Chinese   laumlry-  raan that comes to Canada comes  from    that   section    of   southern  China in tlio immediate vicinity of  Canton.    These westernized celestials are known in  China as the  Cantonese.    This class of Mongolians open up their lilto collar and  cuff laundries in a Canadian locality, and the first one to open in a  new town put his sign up as "Sara  Lee."    The latter, however, is not  the real name of the yellow skinned  laundryman.    His real name  is never known.    There i.s a standing law of   the   Chinese   empire  which forbids a worthy son of the  flowery kingdom to place his .name  upon   a signboard.    Further than  this  the  Chinaman   believes  that  business is business, and that family is   family.    Tlie two   spheres  must bo  kept absolutely and conscientiously  apart.    Tt  is  an  evil  omen if by chance the two should  ever    become   mixed. "The   name  "Sam Lee" has a double meaning.  "Sam" is tlie word for "light and  living."    The word "Lee" means  "profit."    After  a sufficient time  has    elapsed    In   demonstrate,   to  "Sam" Lee that his laundry business is'an actually profitable "go,"  he will either sell out his business  or else induce somo fellow countryman to come into the community  and establish an additional laundry  in   which "Sam" will usually be a  silent partner. . The sign   of the  newcomer  will upually be that of  "Charley    Lee."     The    Chinese  meaning of  the  word  "Charley"  stands for   additional."     "Additional  profits"   therefore   is   how  "Laundryman No. 2" through his  sign invites tho favorable omens of  the Celestial spirits to his business.  There    are   many  other  common  names utilized by this class of Cantonese who establish themselves in  our Canadian cities.    Each name  expresses somo especial signifiance.  The purpose of each name is meant  to  hypnotize  fate aud bring good  luck.    Every  symbol   of   Chinese  hieroglyhpies    i.s     teeming   with  meaning, but it requires a learned  and specialists professor   in   the  study  of Chinese  writing  to   decipher all  the  various shades   of  meaning.   The  name  Hop Wing,  Hop Lee, Hop Sing, etc., all are  for the   special   purpose to   help  along ' the    Chinamar.'s   laundry  business.  More About Foxes  Broken Bottles  State Forester Welty of Washington is investigating the possibility that broken bottles aro sometimes the cause of forest fires. He  says in a letter to various forest  fire protective associations:  "May the mysterious origin of  fires in forest material be attributed to broken bottle glass.  "Many fires  aro  reported each  season by iiro wardens, originating  from     causes     unknown,     along  travelled    roads   and   trails.    No  doubt, many of these fires canbe  attributed  to   the carelessness  of  travelers along the highways.    A  cigar stub, cigarette or match carelessly   thrown   away   and  left to  smoulder is the cause of many fires.  "A Taooma correspondent says:  "Eight years ago, while living at  Grays Harbor,   my duties caused  mo to cover a good deal of territory in  and  through  the woods.  One day at noon I was crossing an  unused trail up tho Wishkah river,  when  I discovered a little smoko  coming from among a few leaves.  No morning sua lasts a whole  1-day.  looked about,   saw no one, and  after carefully investigating, I discovered a broken beer bottle, the  bottom  reflecting squarely on the  sun's rays, making it act, as it did,  a burning glass.    I believe that if  glass found in tho woods, especially  in open dry places, was kicked or  buried under earth, the glass could  not do the work I saw the glass  trying to do.   Of course, I kicked  this bottle under ground and put  out the fire just beginning."  A big fox deal is reported from  Kings county, Prince Edward Island. It is said that Smith & Co.  have sold their ranch, containing  about one acre of wooded land, and  their five pairs of breeding foxes  for $150,000 to a St. John   firm.  But it should not be forgotten  that Ontario possesses what is one  exception the oldest farm of the  sort in America, and has for some  years been an active centre of the  business.  Of these the most extensive is  that conducted at Wyoming, Ont,  by T. L. Borrowraan. Ho is tho  man who cleared 810,000 in the  past season on foxes alone. Ho  does not raise the red fox, handling  only the "silver grays." Of his  experience Borrowmau   says:  "Twelve ago while   in   business  ns a fur dealer I saw   the   chances  for-profit in raising fur-bearing animals.    At great expense I secured  a pair of .silver gray foxes that had  been dug out of   their   den   when  only puppies.    I  spent   thousands  of dollars before I achieved  results  and in these years I had' to   withstand the jeers of my farm   neighbors who regarded the   scheme   as  nothing less than mad. For I must  confess that at that time the enterprise did   look   a   failure.    But I  found that my trouble had been in  putting too many foxes together. I  used to put two pairs in   tho samo  l)on, until T discovered that the females are very jealous of each other  and if placed together will  destroy  their young.    For, in order to conceal the   puppies   the   mother fox  will bury them in the ground. This  of course, is done with tho   best of  intentions, but always   results   in  suffocation.  The change in method brought  results remarkably soon. During  the first year I tried putting each  pair by themselves, I secured nine  puppies, and since then I have had  little difficulty but much experience  in raising them'. I keep the foxes  in pens about GO feet long and 20  feet wide, which are fenced with  poultry netting and this extends  four feet uudergrouud to prevent  them escaping by burrowing. The  "houses" are built of concrete aud  desigued to resemble as much as  possible the natural burrows.  Iu the fall the foxes mate and in  52 days each female will give birth  to from four to nine puppies, about  as large as kittens. In one year  the puppies are mature. At the  beginning of the winter I buy an  old horse, the flesh of which furnishes food for the stock through  the whole winter. I have increased the size of my pens from half an  acre to five acres."'  The pelts are marketed   in London, England.    For   a   single fox  Borrowman sometimes   secures as  much as $2,000 and for a pair to bo  used for breeding purposes   he   is  paid from 8*1,000 to   85,000.    For  tho past few years most of the foxes  of the farm have not   been   killed  for their fur, for, since the business  became a success, many others are  anxious to start farms and ho finds  a ready market for breeding pairs.  Tho animals are killed by   chloroform in order that tho   skins  may  not bo injured.  The remarkable value of a silver  fox fur lies in the fact that it cannot bo imitated. Tho color is black,  save at the tip of the tail, while  around the hips is found the silver-  gray band which gives the fur its  value. At tho root and tip the  hairs are black but gray through  the middle. Thus is produced a  beautiful sheen which even experts  .are unable to imitate.  Tho half dozen or so other fox  farms in Canada are conducted  pracically the samo as Borrowman'  The fox farm run by M. Daltou  on Prince Edward Island, is very  successful. It was started about  20 years ago, aud in 1910 paid a  profit of 842,000 on tho fur harvest  ���������Petrolia (Ont.) Advertiser.  That Beautiful Smile  I have written much on tho subject of smiling, but I can't say  enough.  To express the beautiful in life,  spiritually and physically, to read  on higher development, to practice  the new menti-physical culture and  to observe the hints for tho toilet  is] to restore health, renew youth,  to make the woman of forty more  fascinating than the girl of sixteen,  and to give constant expression to  life as it should be.  The beginning of beauty is in  the smile; so smile. Smile until  you laugh; perhaps it is the first  time you have smiled for months.  Relax your face muscles, loosen up  the cords of the heart, and enjoy  one good laugh.,  I see so many women who look  as though they had not smiled in  years. Somo women take on the  habit of a placid face, think that it  will keep them young in appearance; that is just tho opposite to  tho truth.  A woman's genuine healthy  smile is irresistible and fascinating  to man woman and child.  Doubtless you aro smilling while  you read, laughing with your eyes  at  least, and beautiful thoy aro I  am sure, for ono may hide her face  behind a book or fan, all buther  eyes, yet you know she is smilling  from a good feeling away down inside that bubbles up into her eyes.  So tho onty way to have, beautiful,  expressive eyes is to be honest and  happy inside..  Get into tho habit of smiling;  practice it daily, just as you would  learn to recite a poem, a little  every day as a duty.  Then compare your old every  day face with your now ono and  remark the difference. Now your  new smiling face is very becoming  to you, so you are going to put it  on the moment you arise in the  morning.  It's wonderful how good natured  you will become; you can't scold  with that smile upon your face.  You can't have indigestion and  smile. That simple smiling cure  covers many diseases.  Of course, we all have troubles,  but we must smile and bear them.  God did not intend that we should  have a path of roses; we would  tire of them if that were the case.  Every good thing we have in  this world we must repay with  gratitude, and smiling gratitude at  that. So our thoughts must be  free from revenge, resentment and  malice.  The smile must be from within,  from a loving heart. No selfishness must mar and no sarcasm distort the smile.  Smile honestly and you are obeying God's commandment of "giving." Give joy and pleasure and  you will reap the reward a hundred  fold.���������Lillian Russell.  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

John Mhson did not slam the gate  simply bectiu.se lie knew that this manifestation of nige would surely delight  Rosalie. She wits watching his departure from the window, and he was an-  grlly conscious that she' knew ,he  would, ns usual, roi urn in a few days,  although she had said she hoped sho  would he rid of it!��������� ii for awhile. She  was so young nnd so beautiful���������nud so  provoking!  ��������� At the eiitrnncn to the little park, already growing green lu the April sun,  ho met her slsu-r lie did not know  Anno very well-he lind been too busy  with Itosalle. lie wished now Hint he  had made friends will] tier; her blue  eyes were so like and still-so unlike  Hosalie's. Anne slopped In front of  him and slopped him unceremoniously.  "Been* trampled upon ngiilu!" she observed. "John Mason, for so clever a  man generally you're sometimes an awful���������fool!" She submitted this thought,  fully, In a voice too gentle lo be Insulting.  "Then you and Itosnlio are agreed,  nnd I suppose .vou are expert testimony. May I turn and walk with  you ?"  She nodded and then asked a matter  of fact question, "How ninny times  has she refused you'/"  "I had uot thought to keep count.  Rosalie Just now informed me that this  was tbe last time. I didn't know I had  been the same sort of���������fool so often.  But don't you think she ought to give  me credit for my persistence. N'ot every man proposes so many timos-to  the same girl."  Anne laughed dryly as lie continued:  , "1 would have given up Ion** ago if  I were not unesplaimibly .sure-thai she  does���������care for me. In fact, she never  has said directly that she dues not. She  simply says she' won't- marry me.  What's tl>e matter with aucV Am I too  rich? 1 can give away Ihe stuff if she  likes.' Ami too successful? I might  lose a case to please her. Should I be  as,ugly as Satan? Perhaps she would  like a' beauty aud the 'beast effect!  What does she want? I've said aiid  done everything under heaven, and she  walks on me���������she trails tne!" ,  "Precisely! That's why I called you  ���������what 1 did. A girl likes to trail a  man, but hates the man that will be  trailed. Not logical, is it? To use her  own words, you tire always around,  underfoot. You give her no time to  want you or miss you or think nbout  you. She's ' too sure of you. She  knows just where you'll be. You uever  let her want anything bad enough to  'appreciate it when it comes. Sbe has  always had her own way. Sbe needs to  be a bit afraid of you. She needs to be  bullied."  He frowned. "I am not a brute. That  is not my. way."  "No? * Well, what litis your way accomplished?"  He tried to laugh. "Oh. I'll take your  advice. I'll do anything you say. It  can't be worse than it is now."  "Weil. I hate the responsibility. ��������� If  you get her you'll tight. If you don't  you'll both be miserable anyhow. You  must get her���������and then work out your  own salvation, lu the tirst place, you  must give her a shock. Write ber a  note and accept your dismissal. Tell  her you begin to see that she is right  and that you wish to be friendly with  her and the family. Then call sometimes���������on the father or ou me. Don't  stay away. Absences of thnt sort are  flattering. You must be quite unaffected by her presence."  "You know that- is impossible. You  know how the sight or ber"-  "You've got to do it! And you must  take another girl out occasionally. Being naturally modest. I dislike to suggest that you send me flowers sometimes and come for a walk with me.  That will bring thiugs home to her. A  girl hates to have an admirer transfer  himself bodily to any one. but especially to her sister."  When they had planned their campaign and he left Anne at the gate she  had him laughing. Rosalie saw them  and shrugged her shoulders. While  removing her hat In the hall Anne remarked to her sister:  "Well. dear. John tells me that you  have dismissed him for good. You  know I never would have Interfered If  you had wnnted him. but I am glad  you do not. Now yon may find time  for your music. Your talent Is too  marked to be neglected. It will be a  relief for you to have him out of ihe  way awhile. You're too young to leave  father and me, nnd. after all. I think  you're right about Ills not being the  right man for yon."  Rosalie shrugged tier shoulders.  The next day Rosalie, without comment, handed Anne this note:  Dear Mlsa Carleton���������I want to (hnnlt  you for vour frankness of yesterday, nml  I assure yon thnt I nhall not annoy yon  again as I have In the past. Con yt*i forgive mo for having troubled you so much  and so long? Jou are probably right In  deciding that 1 could not mnlco you nappy, as I hoped to be able to do. May I  hope to continue my present friendly relations with you and the rest of the family? If I may L will not again trespass on  your kindness. It will be, as you said,  the last time you shall have tho pain of  refusing.   Vours sincerely,  JOHN MASON  "Well, i like a man to kuow when  tie's had enough," remarked Anne.  Again Rosalie shrugged her shoulders  and made a wry little face.  For a week Rosalie was blitho and  busy with her music. The second week  Anne observed that the gayety was a  bit forced and that during the third  she moped a little. John had somehow  kept the other men of her set away  from her, and flowers and drives and  theaters were less frequent She had  no time to miss him.  In the fourth week he called���������while  she was out. " Of course she could no!  know that Anne had phoned him to  come. He was leaving just as Rosalia  entered and shook hands with her cordially. He did not look broken hearted, and he seemed to be of very good  terms with Anuie, to whom next morn,  ing he sent some violets. Rosalie saw-  him out walking witli Mary. Dye. Then  he took Anne driving. She began to  realize that -Anne was very pretty if  she was a year or two older than John.  Rosalie's Irrllation reached Its climax  one morning at Hie breakfast table  when her younger broliiorTod remarked in a leasing drawl:  "John seems to lie raking his medicine like a mini, Rosy! He's all right,  and I am glad Anne seems Inclined to  keep him In the family. Uo probably  appreciates being treated like a human  being after the way yon always walked on him. The fellowa say he's tho  best young lawyer in town. But I  should think you'd hate to have hlra  tako his punishment so cheerfully,  Rosy!"  By this time Rosalie lind reached the  limit of endurance. Sbe spraug up  and. before any one could interfere,  had boxed Ted's ears soundly and fled  to her room. No ono made comment  on the scene ���������save Hint Mr. Carleton  amusedly met the laughter in Anne'a  eyes and told Ted that lie would have  no more of his teasing. Rosalie's capricious treatment of John had long  been disapproved of by lier family,  and, while they were all sorry for her,  they thought it time she should como  to her' senses.  Time had been slow and torturing to  John." ne wanted to tell Rosalie that  he loved lier and her only. He wanted  to send her flowers, to give lier every  desire of ber heart, and be found it a  misery to see her or not to see her.  Meantime he was very attentive (o  Anne,.who wasbecomlag vastly bored  with his raptures and sorrows and wns  longing for him to win bis Rosalie and  let her go back to her old peaceful  ways.  At last one night Anne waked and  heard Rosalie sobbing to herself. In  the morning she pleaded headache aud  stayed in her room till nearly evening,  Anue bad a long conference by telephone with John and took pains ta  have ber father and Ted spend thq  evening elsewhere.  After dinner she went to Rosalie's!  room and pleaded being tired. Shei  coaxed Rosalie to arrange lier pretty]  hair and don a pretty gown so shei  could go down if any one should corner  While Rosalie was sulkily doing as hen  sister wished Anne heard the bell and  slipped dowu to answer it. She came  back saying it was some one for her  father and asked Rosalie if. she would  mind going to the library and bringing;  the book she had left on the table.  Rosalie, in ber trailing blue-dress,*  went downstairs and through the hall  Into the library. She had half crossed!  the room before she saw John sitting]  in a great chair in the dim firelight*  She wanted to (Ice- from him, but somehow her feet would not move, nor did!  she find a word to say. Then, to hen  dismay, she knew that a slow tear was|  falling dowu ber cheek. John cainej  quickly toward her. It seemed very]  comfortable to be leaning against him*  After awhile he held her off and looked!  at her.   She tried to smile.  "Well," he questioned, "bow shall ifj  be? You kuow you said you hoped you,  would never.have to refuse me again.  I hopa you will uot. Just for variety,  suppose you���������take me."  After the little minutes had cunningly slipped away aud it was time than  be should leave her Rosalie exclaimed  in dismay:    -  "Oh. Anne's book! She will be waiting for it"  "I  hardly think so." John asserted  dryly.   "Your sister Aune is wise.   She  knew better than to expect you iu a'  moment when she sent you down to  me!"  "Sent me to you!" Rosalie echoed.  "Yes', my lady!   Do you Imagine your  sister bus been trailing me about for  her pleasure?   She is more glad to be*'  rid of me than���������ever you were!"  "Then���������it���������wus not���������Anne���������ever?"  John   laughed   and   bade   tier   good  night.  "If you were not perfectly sure thafj  It was "not���������Anne���������ever,' you would  never, never bave asked nie!" which  both of them knew to be true.

On account of tho failure to have
the assessment work recorded, the
group of valuable iron claims on
Louise island were allowed to run
out, and they were this week re-
p.taked for the original owners by
���Walter 33ass, who is acting as
their agent.
The four claims comprising the
group were located and staked
some years ago by Albert Jones,
Moses Jones, James Jones and
George Young, all Skidegate Indians, and were afterwards bonded
to a company represented by James
D. Sword. Amongst the work
done is a 100-foot tunnel, and the
face of this is said to be in a splendid body of iron ore.
A message came by wireless
from parties in Vancouver that
the last assessment had not been
recorded and that the ground was
open to relocation.
Mr. Dass made the trip with
James Jones in the latter's motor
boat, and the trip was a hard one.

with his partners, George Bruggy,.
John Johnson  and  Ole   Johnson
havo been developing the property
this winter.
The Wire Gold group consists of
nine claims, and is located on the
Marmot river about four miles
south of Stewart and the late find
is two miles from salt water. . Besides the free ledge, the presence
of high-grade galena has been
known for some time, and considerable work has been done on
this ore. At the present work has
been confined to devolopiug the
free gold, and the lead has
been traced across three claims, a
distance of 4,000 feet, while development shows tho ore to bo
from three and one-half to four
feet in width.
The gold is in white quartz,
which-lies between porphry walls
and dips at an angle of about
eighty degrees. ��� Tho topography
of tho mountain is such that the
find can be economically developed
by tunnels. When Mr. Magee left
tho property the lower workings
wero in a distance of twenty feet,
and there was forty inches of oro
in the face similar to the samples
which ho took south. The owners
intend to devolope by tunnelling
and expect to gain a depth of 300
feet, when they will then determine the character and size of
stamp mill to be installed.
Tho property is fortunately situated for both timber and water.,
the Marmot river being capable of
supplying more than enough power
for all requirements. ��� Stewart
Among the recent additions to
the collection of British Columbia
ore samples on exhibition at the
Vancouver Mining club rooms is
an interesting collection of specimens from the Wire Gold group on
the Marmot river. The ore was
taken south by H. C. Magee, who,
A short time ago the Omineca
Herald published a report to the
effect that a deal was being put
through for tho Highland Boy
group on Rocher de Boule mountain. This property adjoins Rocher de Boule mine and carries the
samo veins and tho same character of ore. Word has now been
received by the Herald from P.
J. Jennings that the deal has
been completed and that it is one
of the biggest ever pulled off in
the district. The syndicate that
have taken this group ovpr are
the most active men on the continent. They are mostly men in
Butte, Mon., and Mr. Jennings
is there yet.
The new company has completed organization and will be known
as the Butte & Rocher de Boule
Copper Co. Samuel McConnell,
general manager of the Butte
Central Mine, is president, and C.
J. Stone, general manager of the
Butte-Alex. Scott is vice-president. The rest of the officers and
directors are equally prominent in
the mining world.
Tho first issue of stock was
underwritten by the Western
Stock Exchange Co., of Butte, and
the stock was placed at once with
the directors of the company.
Thus the new company has a. large
fund available for development
. Butte & Rocher de Boule Copper
Co. are now in shape to commence
big operations on the property just
tho minute the snow is oil! the
mountain. It is the intention of
the company to send their engineer here in the early spring to get
things in shape for the opening of
the season. No time will be lost
in getting started and every man
that can possibly be worked will
be put on and tho force added to
as development advances.
The Butte & Rocher do Boule
Copper Co. is one of the strongest
companies interested  in  the  New
Hazelton  district.     They are all
big copper men and  they are out
after more  copper.    That means
big things  for  this   district.    As
soon as word gets down  to   the
new company of the exceptionally
big shoot of ore now being worked
on  Rocher  de  Boule and the big
sample reaches them they  will   be
more confident than ever and   will
begin the work in the spring' with
enthusiasm.     In   developing   the
Highland Boy group there  is  not
the samo speculation there was on
the  Rocher de Boule.   Tho properties  are  side  by  side and what
has been done on tho ono is proof
of what exists on the other so that
the nesv aompany will not have the
same   amount   of   prospecting   to
undertake.    They can start  in  to

The success attending tlio Britannia and Marble Bay mines is
attracting renewed attention to
mining possibilities on the coast.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Co., have had J. M-
Turnbull and A. W. Davis, of
their engineering stall', on the
coast a great deal during the past
two years, and they have examined
properties on Howe Sound; Swan-
son Bay, Texada Island, Portland
Canal, Salmon River and along the
route of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. This would indicate a
desire to extend their mining and
smelting operations to the coast, if
opportunity offered. With a smelter at the coast they could handle
the ores of the Yukon and Alaska
as well as those of the coast section of British Columbia and the
The first definite action taken by
this company in the extension of
their operations to the coast is the
bonding of the Red Mountain Cop-
group, on Howe Sound, and development work has already been
commenced on the property. The
amount of the bond if $75,000,
with no payment for six months.
The deal was arranged through C.
O. Lalonde, formerly mayor and
shoe dealer, of Rossland, and now
with offices in the Loo Building,
The property was examined and
reported on by R. Campbell Johnstone in May last year.     From his
report it  is  learned Unit the Red
Mountain 'group is owned by John
Shoupoand Alexander McTavish,
of   Vancouver.    The   property   is
reached    from    the    landing     in
Schooner Harbor, on Howe Sound,
known  respectively as  Porteaux,
Hollywood,   and   Dcak's   Gravel
Plant.     This   landing   is  distant
twenty-six miles from Vancouver,
and is opposite the northeast corner of Anvil Island.   A steep trail
winds up tho mountain side to tho
top of Mount Shupe, at an  elevation of 0,000 feet.    This point is
threo miles as tho crow flies from

Copper  group covers a   mile   in
length on  tho strike of the   ore
bodies.    Tho original group consisted of threo  claims,   the   Red
Mountain, Imperial and Majestic,
and has been added to by claims
recently staked.   Tho ore is in a
silicious gangue, occurring as shear
zone  and   contact   deposits,   and
Sam Gonyer and Dick Hamilton
came down last week from tho
Coronads Group, on Hudson Bay
mountain, and report a strike of
considerable importance on No. 1
vein. Tunnelling was started on
this vein a short time ago, and
after going only far enough to bo
well inidor cover struck the ore.
The vein in the face of tho tunnel
is three feet in width, two feet
of which is solid galena, and tho
men say it ia widening out with
every foot of progress.
The tunnel was started about
four hundred feet below the No.
2 tunnel, from which the first
shipment of ore from Omineca
district was made in 1905. This
upper vein is known as the Silver
Sidewalk and caused considerable
favorable comment from mining
men who visited the property
last year, aud was considered to
be the big vein of the group; but
now the lower vein looks to be
fully equal to the upper one both
in size and grade of ore.
There .are five men working. on
the property, under the direction
of Foreman Jack Halley, and is
"the only property ou the Hudson
Bay mountain that has continued
development during the winter
months. There are a large number of claims staked on this slope

This is the mine that made the
Similkameen valley active a dozen
years ago, and that poured a portion of its wealth into Oroville,
Loomis and, Brewster, and helped
to build np those towns. In less
than three years the mine turned
out over $600,000 in gold, but as
the ore was opened up and greater
depth attained, it became a concentrating proposition instead of
free milling, the result being that
with a wagon haul to Brewster of
ninety miles, aud a freight charge
of 2c per pound, and with internal
dissensions arising, the property
was shut down, and as a result of
the death of two of tho principal
owners, so remained, until A. M.

northwest, and original discoverer
of tho mine, gathered in the out-
Btadding interests and resold the
property to the parties now operating it.

will be working on from GO to 100

The following news from Chopaka appears in the Oroville Gazette: Tho "old-timers" and the
new comers are interested in the
activity now in progress at the
Golden Zone mine, situated at
Chopaka, without two miles of the
B. C. boundary.
This famous old mine should
never have been shut down, for,
from the time of tho erection of
the mill, it was always a paying
property. !It has fallen to tho lot
of the Grace Development company, a close corporation, composed principally of St. Louis capitalists, to become tho owner, of
what is regarded by those best informed as to the country's resources, as one of tho leading and
best mines of Okanogan county.
The government report, made as
far back as 1901, shows that this
mine produces one of the most desirable ores for treatment, and
ranging in value from 810 to $25
per ton; while for days together
the mill used to run on $25 to $50
ore. The immense tailing pile,
which lies today below tho mill is
witness to the value and quantity
of the ore���even tho tailings contain $4 in gold and silver.

have a heavy load In it, and at other
times it seemed to be tied ia knots.
Nobody knows how I suffered.
"I tried a great many doctors and
a great many kinds, of medicine, but
nothing did any good until I took
Vinol. It has helped me wonderfully.
I am improving fast, feel better and
am getting my flesh back again. Vinol
has done me a world of good."
