A vote of thanks  was   passed to   the retiring   secretary-treasurer Mr.  Pearson, for  the efficient and painstaking way  he had done the  work of the Institute.  A suggestion was brought forward, that the neighboring institutes of Greenwood, Grand  Forks and Glenside, should send  reports of their meetings to the  local papers, especially those dealing with resolutions, to be sent to  the Central Institute at Victoria.

A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  becomo deceased, and that tho editor would once moro  like to commune with your collateral.  Water wagons   are already   a  drug on the market,  Onk of the greatest blessings of  the age is tho,Turkish bath. The  \apor bath is a good second.

Just now the automobiles are  not drumming up much trade for  the undertakers, but tho hole in  tho ice is sending in plenty of  orders.  The Copper Market  The position of the copper market is a waiting one. Such large  producers as have any quantity of  the metal for sale are offering lake  and electrolvtic at 17;j- cents and  more or less is being sold at this  price. Occasionally, however, a  secondhand lot is turned over at  around 17+ cents and as a result  some trade publications quote the  metal at 17| to 17* cents. I know  of sales having been made recently  at about 17+ cents for delivery as  far ahead as March. The purchaser had canvassed the market  and could do no better.  Six months ago tbe bulk of the  world's surplus was being carried  by consumers, who were satisfied  that the metal situation was strong  and who expected a further advance in the price. Since then  consumers have Bhowu a decreasing disposition to buy for future  delivery, using up their stocks on  hand in preference to buying new  supplies, and the world's visible  Burplus has increased somewhat.  During this six months, however,  the actual supply of unmanufactured copper, visible and invisible,  has probably decreased rather than  increased.  In Europe, where the invisible  supplies were largest 'and  where  this  process of scraping out   the  bins has  been most   pronounced,  there has been a decrease of approximately 18,000,000  pounds in  tlie visible supply during  the past  six months, against an increase of  3(5,000,000 pounds in  the   United  States.     Noting   the increase  of  visiblo   surplus,    consumers   are  avoiding new purchasers as far as  possible, with a view to inducing  producing interests to lower their  prices.    There appears to   be no  good reason why producers should  do this, as the total surplus stockB  in    this country   are   little more  than sufficient to supply the consumption  demand during the remainder of this month and Jan-  nary, and a very considerable portion of the January requirements  have been engaged already.   It is  probable,  therefore,  tbat approximately half of the existing visible  surplus has been sold.  During  the  first half  of   this  month the foreign visible supply of  copper, including the stocks at  Hamburg and Rotterdam, decreased 3,122,500 pounds. The  visible stocks at world-wide points  are now smaller by nearly 40,000,-  000 pounds than they wero at the  beginning of this year.  It is not believed that there is  sufficient copper in existence to  force the price down below fifteon  cents, even if it were all sold ��������� by  auction in one day. Iii order to  conduct their business properly the  world's consumers should havo  every pound of the visible surplus  in their bins and warehouses.  Should anyone accnr to satisfy the  trade that the time had come to  buy copper it is improbable that  there would be enough to go  around and the concerted buying  might carry the price to twenty  cents a pound or even higher.  Electrification plans which are being worked out for the future will  call for considerably more copper  than the mines will be able to  supply.���������Boston Commercial.  Thinking Themes  Washing is an eternal necessity.  The housewife's complaint that  her work is never done, and that  things will ."ever stay clean, is a  complaint against life itself.  Every day, every hour, brings  its dirt. I must be wiping my feet,  washing my hands, brushing my  clothes, sweeping my hearth, and  doing the dishes.  Which is also quite true of my  mind and heart. Constantly they  are blown into my mind thoughts  that mnst be swept out. They are  mud and dirt to me.  My mental inner policeman is  always busy putting out loafers  and raginuffins. By this I mean  ideas that can only bother or make  trouble.  I would hate to bave you see the  little treacheries lies, sensualities,  selfishness, whimperings, cowardices, envies and the like tbat go  into my mental garbage can daily.  Anything that can kepp me dean  T am anxious to lind. What I ask  of a book or a friend is that the  psychic effect be antiseptic. I  have enough born poisons in me.  Happy is the man who has a  friend who can  "arouse tho neiiHiial from their  sleep  Of death arid win the  vacant and  tho vain  To noble raptures.''  About Taking Cold  The old-fashioned idea of putting on heavy underwear at the  first sign of a cold snap is responsible for more colds than the putting on of furs just because they  are new or because you are glad to  see them again.  People are more inclined to  dress for tho season than for the  weather, which is a great mistake.  Our seasons are different today  than , formerly. When I was a  child the snow was always packed  up around the bouse at Thanksgiving time and we bad to go about  in sleighs.  Today, we have little bad weather before Chiistnias, and sleighs  are as rare in cities as carriages  and horses.  It is much easier to take cold  from being too warm than from  being too cold.  Putting on heavier clothes always causes discomfort aud flannels are a great mistake. Heavy  stockings are not necessary to keep  the feet warm. And overheated  rooms are deadly.  A brisk walk on a cold day will  do more to warm the blood than  anything conceited to put into tbe  stomach.  Three good meals a day and a  warm outlook upon the world will  keep the. blood circulating sufficiently in the normal man or  .woman to prevent colds and all  other winter ills.  Naturally warm outer garments  must be worn in cold weather, but  bundling up i.s dangerous. No  change in undergarments should  be made, winter or summer, to insure, health.  But great oare sliould be taken  to been the feet dry and warm.  Rubbers should never worn for a  single, moment indoors. Thoy can  cause, the feet to draw and become  inflamed tho moment they strike  the warmth of a radiator.  When a bouse, is heated by dry  heat, steam or furnace, windows  should always be lifted slightly,  just enough to let in fresh air and  let out fetid air.  More red noses aro caused by  heat than cold and more," sore  throats come from tightly wrapping up the throat than from allowing it to be exposed to the  air. But you should not wrap it  up one day and leave it open the  next.  One mistake women make is in  taking warm baths and getting out  of the bath before the water has  been tbrroughly cooled. Tf the  cold water is allowed to run into  the tub after a warm wash until  the water is quite cold, and a cold  sponger or shower is used, no  woman, however delicate, need  fear a cold resulting from her ablution.  Remember: The fear of colds  causes more colds than the elements.���������Lillian Russell.  Switzerland's Army  The Kaiser has come and gone,  says a.Zurich letter. He, saw and  was convinced. For years he has  wanted to see tbe Republican  Militia Army of Switzerland. Finally, be frankly said he would  like to be invited, and the Swiss  could hardly do otherwise, than invite him. ITe came���������the first  crowned bead to pay Switzerland  an official visit. The Swiss are  proud of it, excepting, perhaps,  some socialists.  The Kaiser quickly perceived the  effectiveness, and efficiency of the,  wholly citizen army of Switzerland.  With liis usual frankness he spoke  words of praise, which fell pleasantly even upon Swiss ears, coming, au they did, from the head of  tho greatest army in the world.  His Majesty saw an army organized upon a basis which cost  89,000,000 a year, as against $350,-  000,000, which he pays for his  own military and naval forces. In  the event of war, Switzerland  would muster about 325,000 trained troops. It is estimated that  40,000 youths of about sixteen, all  excellent marksmen, would also  volunteer, and that, all told, Switzerland have more than 300,000  men for defence.  Military training in Switzerland  begins with the sixteenth year, but  it  is voluntary   until   twonty   is  reached. Every town has its  "cadet corps,'' Every youth and  the vast majority of men belong to  "schnetzen yereins." When most  boys are still riding hobby horses,'  the Swiss boy is already beiug  taught which is the business end of  a gun, and that you should never  look into that end.  There is no standing army.in  Switzerland. There are, however,  several thousand permanent officers, commissioned and non-commissioned, who are tho paid instructors. The number of men  that these instructors constantly  have under training suffices for all  peace purposes.  At the age of twenty years, every  Swiss begins military duty. In  the infantry he is trained sixty-five  days the first time; if ho enters the  artillery, seventy-five days, and  with the cavalry ninety days. He  is then dismissed, and between that  time and his thirty-second year he  serves seventy-seven daysiu eleven  periods*, of seven days each. The  Swiss average about ISO days'  actual service and training up to  his forty-eighth year, when military .service is no longer required.  Switzerland can mobilize, its  army in less time than any other  nation. This is made possible by  the fact that every man who has  served and is subject to call takes  his uniform, rifle and equipment  home with him. Hence the Swiss  army is constantly under arms.  At specified times the equipment  isMiispficted, and it should be said  that the, equipment of tho regular  armies of Europe are not kept in  better shape than that of the Swiss  citizen-soldier.���������Brooklyn Citizen.  More Newfoundlanders  Hon. Dr. Roche, Minister of the  Interior, has been in receipt of  many letters of congratulation in  regard to his order in removing the  immigration restrictions on Newfoundlanders coming into Canada  Former residents of the Ancient  Colony have particularly appreciated the move of the minister and  have written him thanking him for  the courtesy ho has extended to  Newfoundland and also expressing  the hope that the Borden government may be successful in bringing  the island into confederation.  They also hope that tho move will  result in more Newfoundlanders  coming to Canada instead of-going  to the United States.  Weeds Poison Crops  It has been generally supposed  that the principal effect upon the  soil, of weeds in tho growing crops,  was that that they took away  moisture and plant food that should  go to the crops. Recent investigation at Cornell University has  demonstrated that they have a  deleterious effect upon crops in  that they poison tho plants by their  intermingling of their roots. Corn  and weeds were allowed to grow  side by side in similar soil but with  partitions placed that the roots  were kept apart. Tho corn and  weeds grew normally. In������another  box tlie corn and weeds were placed  so that the, roots could intermingle,  with the result that the corn was  stunted and its growth materially  retarded. It is a case of incompatibility of association.  How to Start  The preacher says with prayer.  The physical culturists say with  calithenics   and   plenty  of   two-  cylinder lung exercises.  The hot sports recommend a  jolt of Hudson's Bay.  The boss says with a crowbar  and a jimmy and a club. '  The general meaning in each is  the same. The thing that's wanted  is something that will invigorate,  inspire and enthuse. The largest  percentage of failures in all kinds  of work take place at 8 in the  morning.  The old-fashioned habit of sweeping out in tbe morning had a great  virtue in showing the keen-eyed  clerk what was wrong about the  place, and giving him time to  evolve a day's program.  . To plan exactly what ought to  be done during the day is the fisBt  definite step toward getting something accomplished; and a peucil  and a pad used promptly at 8,  ante-meridian, is a better safeguard against the sheriff than a  Ross army rifle.  jThe best way to bag a flock of  ducks'is to aim specifically at one  of them every time.  j The man with a daily program  is in a position to aim definitely  at one thing; and with a list; before  him it is two to one that he will  aim at the most important thing  first.  "I forgot," is the motto, slogan  and war cry of men without programs; but the office man who  writes things down does not waste  his forenoons or scatter dragon's  teeth when ho ought to be mending fences.���������Harlan Read.,  When you want a headstonp or  monument write to the Kootenay  Monumental Works, Nelson, B.C.

"But I won't give  ye my name," said the driver.  "Ye'll get yersilf into trouble,"  said tho policeman, if ye don't  give mo yer name." <(I won't  give ye me name," said the driver.  "Phat is yer name, now?" aBked  the angry policeman. "Ye'd better find out," said the driver.  "Sure and I will," said the policeman. He went round to the side  of the car where the name ought  to have been painted, but tbe  letters had been rubbed off.  "Aha!" said the policeman, "now  ye'll get yersilf into worse disgrace  than ever. Yer name appears to  be oblithrated."

A Tough Road  Dave Hoy, tho well-known  rancher of Milne's Landing, arrived in town this week over the  Stoncy Creek sleigh road with a  freight outfit. He states tbat the  road is in poor condition owing to  the light snowfall. Mr. Hoy  brought iu a load of hay for sale.  He sold the whole load here at  going rate of SI 00 a ton.  The Stoney Creek section, Mr.  Hoy states, is very short of supplies. Settlers in that locality  havo been advised that there is a  similar shortage at this place,  and they are, therefore, freighting over the, longer and more  difficult Quesnel road. The light  snowfall has added to tho difficulty of tho transportation problem at this time of year, and the  wagon road between Quesnel and  Fraser Lake is lined with the  caches of the freighters who have  had to cut down their loads. Tho  trip between Milne's Landing,  seventy miles up the Nechaco  river from this place, is made by  Mr. Hoy in two and a half days.���������  Fort George Herald.

She possesses today the  greatest store of timber in the  world.  One forest in Franco pays over  $20,000,000 annually. Such a  thing as a fire, is of course, unknown.  There as a town in Europe where  citizens get a dividend over and  abovet'ne municipal expenses. Wise  use of the surrounding forest has  made it a permanent and growing  revenue producer.  France has spent $40,000,000 in  an endeavor to prevent the orosion  of the soil from mountains whose  slopes hnve been denuded of timber through forest fires.  The forest industry had a value  to British Columbia in 1911 of  $28,000,000, almost equivalent to  tho value of the foodstuffs produced and imported.  H. R.

In I lie incandescent lamp it Is the hairpin liliiinent inside the glass glouo  which, when Heated by electricity,  gives otf light waves.

The sun  gives tup only pure white light, with  the arc lamp a close second, and the  'liiclnl lllaiiient ' incandescents taking  third place. Sky light, such as comes  from the north on a clear (lay, is bluish  white, (las inaiillcs give u greenish  light, open Hume a yellow light and  kerosene an orange light  In the dark no color exists. The  color ot linht depends upon the length  of Ihe waves. The light source which  we know as red gives off only waves  of a length lo produce that particular  colon A body appears red because Its  surface absorbs till thc other waves and  reflects the red waves back into tho  eye. A thing looks black when It is  capable ot absorbing all the colors at  once.  Light rays, being In active motion,  produce heat when they meet with resistance in their path. This is why  black clothing is warmer in summer  than white clothing, the resistance being on the surface of the white clothing and nearer the skin when we wear  black.  The eyes have only a certain range,  weak enough at best As we all know,  there tire times when all appears block:  to us and yet animals can see. The  trouble Is the faint light rays move  too slowly to be registered on the human retina. The X ray has proved beyond a doubt that there are light rays  which move too fast for human eye9  to register. This light penetrates books,  wood, paper and even human flesh.  With the X rays to assist our eyes  we can see the hones In our arm without bothering to remove our shirt. But  a man. with X ray eyes would be sadly  handicapped in this world,,for he could  see nothing but solids, such as earths  and metals, and would be unable to  see a board fence at all. To us all Is  darkness beyond what our eyes will  register.  Light rays themselves nre Invisible.  When they move through the ether  alone our eyes cannot see them; consequently all Is total darkness. But  when they meet with the resistance of  our atmosphere, producing heat, they  register on lhe retina, and. behold,  we can see. As ihe atmosphere thins  rapidly as we go upward, so, in proportion, the air resistance diminishes,  and consequently the heat of (be sun  seems to grow less. This explains why  the tops of very high mountains are always covered with snow.���������New i'ork  Tress.  THE BRUNSWICK HOTEL  CIGAR    AND   NEWS   STAND  CARMI -        - B.    C.

C. MINING NEWS  George J, Novak returned a few  clays since from Highland Valley,  near Ashcroft. where lie has been  for two and a half months looking  after liis mining property in that  section. In a chat had with him  ho stated that there, it is now being proved, thc ore bodies go down.  As an evidence of this he said that  within the last three years owners  of properties there have been exploiting at depth and have found  oii the McGilvray for instance, ore  at a depth of 200 feet. The Top-  notch group has four feet of copper ore at a depth of 125 feet that  will average eight per cent, copper  and S4 in gold and silver values.  The Glossy group is being developed by a shaft which has reached  a depth of forty feet, and the ore  runs from $G0 to ������100 per ton. A  few years ago these properties were  i*ot known.  A shaft was sunk on the Highland group to a depth of sixty-three  feet and a ledge over two feet in  width encountered, the ore from  which goes G.2 per cent, copper,  S1.20 in silver and S2.S6 in gold  to the ton. Crosscutting is now in  progress toward the main ore body,  which will be intersected in the  next fifteen feet. This ore body,  which has been opened up by open  cuts and a ten foot shaft, is twenty  feet in width.  The owners of the several properties in Highland Valley are now  developing them in a very systematic and workmanlike manner,  while a few years ago they simply  potholed.  The government has promised to  build a wagon road from Spatsum  to Highland Valley, a distance of  fourteen miles, which will give the  different properties shipping facilities.  The B. C.   Copper Co.,   a short  time since, took a bond ou the  Maggie group, consisting of several  claims near Highland Valley, for  $170,000.  There is, a deal in progress for  the Topnotch, in Highland Valley,  which has GOO tons of pay ore on  the dump aud has extensive underground development. .The owners  of the Glossy group were offered  84S,000 for the group but it was  refused, as they consider the property worth more than this sum.  A few years ago the mining section around Ashcroft, including  the Highland Valley, had an unjustifiable setback, but its genuine  merits are now proven and the  section is again receiving recognition, and it looks as though it has  a future of much promise, and people there firmly bolieve that there  will be a boom, as they consider  that there is no mining section of  British Columbia that has more  real merit. Mining property there  of value can bo purchased on fairly  reasonable terms.-Rossland Miner.  W. Oliphant Bell, in a recent  issue of tho Vancouver World, has  the following to say on tho mining  situation:  ��������� It is very gratifying to. bo able  to record that the provincial government is at last stirring itself on-  behalf of the mining industry of  B. C. Iu a recent newa item appeared an announcement that the  government intends to establish  mining exhibits in various centres  of Europe and the United States,  and also disseminate information  about the mineral resources in connection therewith, which is believed will create an healthy interest in this province. This step  is highly corumendablo and can  only result in beneGt to us all.  We have, as a community, absolutely failed to realize that mining is the mainstay of this province. This does not disparage  other natural industries, it merely  claims what is due to mining, and  if examined intelligently is an indisputable fact. In actual numbers of ineu employed directly and  indirectly, value of output, capital  investment in plant and equipment  and potential resources, mining  stands at the head of our industrial  list. We have unlimited timber  reserves, capable of great expansion, it is true, but the example of  the United States points to an ultimate reduction of these reserves.  Our fisheries are .valuable, and will  probably remain a great asset for  many years, but thoy have their  limitations. Our agricultural resources are not extensive, and never can become so, as Nature has  created mountains instead of  plains, Therfore we must admit  that the' mineral wealth undeveloped affords the greatest opportunities   for the    employment of  Pure������������������ Wholesome'-'Ket  Indispensable  Its fame is world-wide. Its superiority  unquestioned. Its use is a protection  against alum food. In buying baking  powder examine the label carefully  and be sure the powder is made from  cream of tartar. Other kinds do not  make the food healthful.  capital and support of the future  population of the province.  This year our production should  approach the 30,000,000 mark unless the strike of tlie coal miners  on Vancouver Island seriously  affects the total, and if the price of  tbe common metals is maintained,  as there if every reason to believe  it will be, next year should witness  a substantial advance upon this  year's figures. For /ill too long  mining has had to make its way  unaided, and even in face of popular prejudice and financial diaap-  pointment. It has had no recognized standing except by those corporations which had their money  profitably invested, and they for  selfish but perfect'y natural reasons, have always kept thoir business to themselves, and have not  sought to draw attention, to (he  country which they were operating  in with success and over which  they exercised a virtual dictatorship.  Obviously private agencies are  not capable of attracting outside  capital here unless thoy have tho  assistance and recognition of some  recognized authority, such as the  [government of the country. If we  wish to profit by the introduction  of foreign capital, we must offset  any previous prejudice which may  and does exist in Eastern Canada  and England resulting from the  wild and'unbusinesslike methods  of the early days. The mining industry has got beyond the experimenting stage, and we can invite  with every confidence outsiders to  come in and participate in tins revival which has latterly set in. It  is to facilitate this movement that  tho provincial government proposes  to take a hand, and there cau be  no room for doubt that its effects  in this.direction will bring direct  and prompt results.  Once stamp an article or an industry with government approval  and it will draw world-wide attention to itself. Let the same government also lend its portego all  the financial support possible and  consistent with sound development,  and it will be surprising to note  how rapidly it will gain a reputation for foresight and judgement in  the eyes of the world, for in no  other industry is theie so much  publicity attained amongst capitalists as in the mining sphere. Mining capital is international in character. It goes where it receives  the most sympathetic treatment  and where it can be profitably em*  ployed. There are many reasons  why it should come to this province. First, on account of the  topographical nature of the conn try.  which is adapted to economical development; second, by reason ofthe  cheap water power available in all  parts of the province; third, the  supply right at hand in most cases  of suitable mining timber; fourth,  perfect security of title. These  aro all important points, to offset  which there is only one drawback,  viz., lack of transportation. This  certainly does offset all the foregoing advantages, but it is rapidly  being solved by the construction of  a net work of railways which will  make many sections of the country  available for development.  The railroad is the one prime  requisite which nature has not  supplied and which has militated  more than anything else against  the more rapid expansion of our  mineral wealth. It must be remembered, however, in justice to  ourselves, that it is only within  most recent times that, as a community, we possessed the necessary  confidence in ourselves and had  tho financial resources, and could  forecast with an .degree of certainty what the future held for  Canada at large and this province  iu particular. Therefore, while  our progress may have been slow,  we havo tho satisfaction of knowing now that there is nothing wliich  can prevent our steady and continuous growth.  It is stated that the clean-up of  the Yukon Gold Company for the  season will exceed last year's output by $1,000,000. Dredging was  carried on to the first week in  November and plenty of water  available.' The past summer has  been considered a successful one  in the Yukon, the production being .������6,000,000, the highest since  1898.  ,  P. Burns & Co. propose to have  their Sheep Creek (Alta.) anthracite mine in producing condition  within two years. At present the  mine is under development under  the supervision of A. Sharp. Next  year it is proposed to put in hand  the construction of a railway to  the mine, which will then be  equipped with an up-to-date plaut,  aud promises to become one of the  most important mines in Alberta.  A new coal property has been  taken up by Mackay & Dippie of  Calgary. It is located at the head  of the Kananaskis river, on the  east side of tho divide from tbe  Sheep Creek property of P. Burns  & Co. Jas. Ashworth recently  made an exhaustive examination  of the coal deposits on the property and we understand his report  was favorable, establishing the  fact that tho coal is of a high quality bituminous, with valuable  properties as a steam coal.  Sir Donald Mann failed to exercise his options on Groundhog  Mountain coal.  P. Watkins Evans and O.

THE SLOCAN SLIDES  Within the past year McKenzie,  Mann & Co., Ltd., have gone to  considerable trouble to investigate  the prospects of establishing the  iron and steel industry in British  Columbia, and Robert Flaherty,  who has achieved a high reputation as an expert on iron ores, was  repeatedly brought to the coast to  investigate iron deposits. Mr.  Flaherty examined a large number of holdings, nearly all magnetite, but the result of his investigations was unfavorable, the high  sulphur content of the ores investigated being considered detrimental to the production of high-  grade iron and steel. The hope of  the utilization of these iron ores  lies in electric smelting, and the  Department of Mines at Ottawa  will shortly issue a report demonstrating the economic success of  the electric process.  Thero is a proposal on foot to  work the extensive clay deposits  reported at Port MeNoill, on the  northeast coast of Vancouver  Island. A. W. Losee of Victoria,  formerly on the staff of the Van-  con ver Portland Cemout Company,  has recently made two trips of investigation in connection with  these deposits, which are stated to  form a natural cement mixture,  the admixture of lime aud silica  being in favorable ratio. Mr.  Losee has taken out characteristic  samples of the clays and had them  tested by J. O'Sullivan, assayer,  of Vancouver, with satisfactory  results. The deposits are said to  be about eighty feet in thickness.  Tho promoters proposo installing  cement and pottery works at Port  McNeill, Fuel is convenient, the  Suquash mine of the Pacifie CoaBt  Coal Company operating within  seven miles of the deposits. Port  McNeill is also a good harbor,  having thirty feet of water available, aud wfell sheltered from all  except southeast winds, Port McNeill is on the highway of navigation between Vancouver, Seattle  aud Victoria on tho south, and  Prince Rupert, Juneau and other  Alaskan ports to the north, so it is  well located for transportation.  Mouday at noon when the miners were going from the Deadman  mine to the Noble Five boarding  house for lunch, a snowslide came  down. There were six men in the  party. Three of them escaped, the  other three���������Nick Whisky, a Pole,  and two brothers, named Johnson,  Fins���������were caught and carried  down the gulch. Search parties  from tho mine and from Sandon,  notwithstanding the danger from  other slides, went out to search for  the bodies, but were unsuccessful,  and there is now little hope of recovering the bodies until the snow  melts in the early summer.  Monday afternoon and Tuesday  a number of other slides emptied,  into the Noble Five gulch.  Sunday night the slides commenced coming down at the Idaho.  About ten o'clock one came down  and covered the bunk and cook  houses with from ten to twenty  feet of snow. The buildings were  strong, and the only injury was to  the stove pipes, The men in the  cook house went back to bed, after  taking the burning wood out of  the stove. The men in the bunk  house dug themselves out. All  came down the hill Monday.  Three men were left at the lower  camp to go up to work at the  Alamo, but were warned by  Superintendent Springer not to  leave camp until the weather became cold enough to harden the  snow. Tuesday morning about  ten o'clock one of the men, Angelo  Troer, left camp. He did not  reach the Alamo, so it is probable  he was caught in a slide. Foreman Cory headed a search party  yesterday, but it is not likely the  body will be found until the snow  melts, and possibly not then, for  it may be carried into Carpenter  creek and taken to the lake during  high water. Troei was a recent  arrival from Nelson, and it ia said  had relatives there.���������Slocan Record.
