This is a good time to  order a wagon, and avoid the  rush in the spring.  The Nelson News has just  issued an annual review number  that is an excellent advertisement,  for the resources of the Kootenay  and Boundary districts.  Jim Dunn writes from Mc-  Murrav, Wash., to say that Jack  Sibbald and him are running an  hotel in that town, and putting  money in the cash register every  day.

He is suffering from  enlarged veins in his legs, but  expects that the water at the  Springs will soon place him,in  good standing.

The rumor is still gaining circulation, as has been lurking  arouud lor several weeks, that  the Thomet murder mystery of  Midway, is still a work of stndy  for the Canadian officers, aud the  chances are the case will develop  soon to a point where someone  will be hauled into court. It is  alleged in connection with this  report that Ben Hart, Bill Newman and Fred Bongard's names  are closely linked with the mystery, and that something may  materialize soon.���������Chesaw News.

Since then the report has gained  circulation that Keffer has "turned  the camp down cold" and quite  naturally there has been u great  deal of speculation as to the source  of such a rumor. In the course of  events some interested party wrote  to Mr. Keffer for some authentic  information, and this week Tho  News read a letter over the signature of the engineer in which he  emphatically denies any such report as effecting the Myers Creek  district, and further stated that of  the samples taken from the various  workings in question he had completed but a singlo assay. -Chesaw  News.  been'fihed* $100   foiY running  poker game.

The  gold output in 1911 is estimated to  have a value of $17,150,000; that  of 1910 was ������16,126,749. It is estimated that the Alaska mines  produced 22,900.000 pounds of  copper in 1911, valued at about  S2,S30.000; in 1910 their output  was 4,241,6S9 pounds, valued at  853S.095. The silver production,  in 1911 is estimated to have a value  of 8220,000, compared with 8S5,-  236 for 2910. The .value of all  other mineral products'in 191],  including tin, marble,' gypsum and  coal, was, about 8170,000, au increase over, that of 1910.  By using the above estimates for  the output,of1911, the total value  of Alaska's mineral production  since 1880, when mining first hogun  is found to be,' in round numbers,  8200,600,000, of which $195,950,-  000 is represented by the value of  the gold output. The total production of copper in Alaska since  1901, when'systematic mining of  this metal began is about 50,700,-  000 pounds, valved at about 88,-  170,000.

A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like to  commune with your collateral.  The sick man i.s nearly always a  scoundrel.  The   press   and   pulpit   should  teach the people how to laugh.  The  poor man is   not kicking  these days because he has no ice.  This province is full of blind  pigs that are continually using  glasses.  DukiiYG the past week funerals  of good resolutions have been very  numerous.  In Greenwood not a single fly  has fallen into the butter for more  than a week.  Ciieer up, dear Daphne, six  months from now this winter will  be nothing  but a memory  of the  past.

Every soul has been alone when it  has   received   any   spirit"4toucb.  Moses was alone in the ^mountain.  God is as secret as one's guilt.  He ie   as   private   as   one's conscience.    He is as intimate as one's  emotion.  The God of multitudes, of the  congregation, of the world is imposing to the imagination, but He  does notjOreacb^the^soul. The  soul's God ' dwells-'in the very  bottom of the funnel of silence, in  the last locked isolation of solitude.  Whoever does]not*find God alone  does not find Him at all.  God, as g, usable idea, is not the  Lord of Hosts, but the Lord of one  single   human   being.    He   bears  upon  men, not in  the lump,   but  individuality!.   To use a phraze off  Victor Hugo,, ''He is the ocean roar  in the single/soul,   the rising tide  in one'heart."    Doubting Thomas  had never believed in God at all  until he   cried:    "My Lord   and  My God."-���������Dr. Frank Crane.  your father died.    Ie was an unexpected blow from a clear sky.  He had always intended making a  will leaving   everything to your  mother, for you and your  brother  and sister had had a big share of  the home property in the gifts he  gave during his life  time and  he  felt he could trust your mother to  do what was right when it came  time for her to dispose of the remainder by will,    But the moment  he died you  began   to   speculate  upon a division of the property and  finally the   appraisers   came  aDd  each of you got another slice and  your mother got the remainder.  Then to be thoroughly agreeable  eacn of you in turn  offored  her a  home, but you  didn't pay to her,  "Come, mother, stay  with  us always.    \Ve have just tho finest,  airest aud most comfortable room  imaginable for you.   You've worked hard and you've worked  long  enough.    Now como   and    rest."  What you did say was,   "Mother,  I guess we can make room for you  over to our house.    You cau have  tho little  bedroom  and   you  can  help  Mary to   take' care   of   the  children.    That will save the expense of a girl.  You didn't think how ��������� cruel  your proposition was and you  couldn't understand the startled,  pained' look that came into tho  grief-shadowed old eyes. You see  you'd never been a mother, so you  just naturally couldn't understand  the knife thrust there was in your  suggestion.  If you didn't do that you left  her to eat her heart out in loneliness and grief���������perhaps to keep  working to support herself through  the remaining years of her life.  But some day you will understand,  because you've got to grow old.too.  ���������Katherine Kip.  Fish Culture in Canada  Hatching fish by artificial means  to stock the. waters^'of Canada is  engaged in on a large scale by the  Dominion Government. In 1909,  the Dominion fish hatcheries planted no fewer than 1,024,282,000 fry  in various waters throughout the  country.' In 1900, only 271,995,-  000 fry were planted by the Gov-  ernment'fish^hatcheries/^sojthatthe  plant^of young ������fish has increased  by nearly 277-per'cent. in the "past  ten years and the number of hatcheries has'increased'from 12 to , 37,  or 208 per cent. Of the 37 hatcheries now [in operation, British  Columbiajand-Quebechave Sjeach,  Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and  Ontario, 5 each; and Manitoba and  Prince Edward Island each have 3.  The amount voted ������by the Dominion Parliament for fish culture  purposes in 1909 was 8322,300, and  of this 8190,345, or approximately  50 per cent, was expended. The  importance " of carrying on this  work can not bo emphasized too  much in a growing country like  Canada, where tho increasinc population is T making greater and  greater demands on tho fish supply.  Take Ozone  Eleven days of this leap-year  have already gone over the dump  of time, and up to the hour of going to press no resolute damsel has  slipped a proposal to the editor.  That Old Mother of Yours  In Seattle last month a young  man lost $250 playing poker.    To  get more money he went to an inland  town,   held up a bank,  and  shot the manager dead.    He will  probably end his days clutching at  the ozone from the end of a rope.  The young man made a mistake.  He should have held up the poker  game    and   killed    the   dummy.  Then the good people of Seattle  would have given  him  a medal,  and put him to sleep on the police  force.  Some tenderfeet must have  wandered into Calgary and got a  job editing -The Albertan. In a  recent edition of that paper it  speaks of tho buffalo as "antlered"  strangers.   This is the first time  that we ever heard  of the buffalo fcriec* to 8ive ^ou a reaJ chance in  What about that old mother of  yours? She's worked hard all her  life to get you to a place where  you can help yourself. Everything she has done for you has  been a labor of love. How about  what you can do for her? Are you  doing it, or are you allowing her  to live out her life in loneliness and  discomfort because you haven't  been brave enough and honest  enough cto pay y'our^debt?  It may be that sho had to work  out the problem of supporting  educating and raising you all alone.  It may be that she made every  sort of sacrifice to give you your  chance and for that reason has lost  step with the progress of women.  Perhaps she hasn't the little  elegancies of manner that make  women attractive. Perhaps she  wouldn't shine to any great extent  in an assemblage of people.  Or it may be that with your  father she worked hard to accumulate something against the time  of old age and at the same time  being classed as a cervian animal.  However we should not be surprised these days at anything that  emauates from Calgary. It is even  reported that they have wolves in  that town selling real estate and  life. It may be that these people  thought that when they were old,  they would enjoy the results of  toil and sacrifice and that you  would add zest to their enjoyment.  As soon as you reached maturity,  'surely they might as well have a nowever* you began to look around,  bison or two with antlers.  Thinking Themes  There is after all, no Cod but  my God. Whoever the habitant  of heaven's throne and earth's rule  may be, He is in the last analysis  my personal something. Whatever real religion a man has is en-  as was quiet natural for your mate  and prepare to mako a home nest  of your own. When you married  "the old folks" generously divided  their savings with you so that you  would have a right start in life.  They did the Barae with your  brother and sister. And apparently all were happy.  Then there came a day when  Remarks by Bruce  In  Vancouver   moving . picture  j shows, when the American  flag's  shown on  the film,  you  can tell  how many  Americans there are in  the house because they all cheer.  When the Union Jack appears on  the curtain, which  is seldom, because the films are mostly American, there is no cheering.    Natives  of the United States,  especially of  the type you meet in  moving-picture theatres,  always cheer-their  flag when they see it in a foreign  country.    Is this patriotic ardor,  or   is   it   cheap   sentiment?   The  saccharine moving-picture film, the  riff-raff magazine, the yellow newspaper,   the popular song,  and the  cheap vaudeville aud  drama have  made the American bourgeoisie the  cheapest of sentimentalists.   These  things have set up false standards  and they are making the American  masses a race of sloppy emotionalists..   They  have given  to life a  fraudulent     background.       They  form almost  the sole intellectual  food and entertainment of a vast  number   of   people.    They   have  scummed    the   English   language  over with  a froth of illegitimate  words and phrases which are without meaning except that in  which  they are made to maequerade by  some vaudeville jestor, the idol of  the shop girls of fourteen cities.  The yellow newspaper,  the "sob-  story"  moving picture film,  and  the other things are responsible for  many of the troubles of the time.  They are debilitating to the American nation and their influence is  oozing   over   the boundary  into  Canada.   The dark   undertow of  these things is soaking underneath  Canadian life.    They are Americanizing    Vancouver.     American  newspapers carrying "hot stuff,"  divorce and  murder, '"played up"  on   their  front  pages,   have  an  enormous circulation in Vancouver.  Every "show," nearly every book  and magazine we get here is American.���������Saturday Sunset.  The greatest peril to human life  which wo have had to combat is  tuberculosis.  We all need fresh air, for fresh  air in the lunga means pure blood  in the body, and pure blood is  health.  If you only walk a few squares a  day you can gain much if-you  throw your shoulders back, lift up  your chin and breathe deeply  through your nose.  Keep your mouth shut firmly,  hold the air in your lungs a few  seconds, and then exhale through  your nostrils slowly, and you will  find you shortly will feel better in  every way. Even the "black  butterflies" which have perhaps  given you a sleepless night, will  fly away to some other resting  place after you have".had a short  walk in the open air and a half  hour given to deep breathing.  Your eyes will become brighter,  your complexion will show clear  and rosy, nature will assert herself and beautify your face in a  way that would be the despair of a  beauty specialist.  The skin, when you return from  a ride or walk, may need care, for  the dust sifts into the pores and  will produce a more or less drying  effect upon it, but a brisk walk  acts as a tonic, and you can see  improvement immediately in your  complexion as well as in your  spirits.  Sometimes (but this is rare) a  little eruption comes on the skin  after walking in the wind.    This,  however, generally denotes a disordered    liver.     Continued    and  lengthy walks will also cure liver  trouble, so if you have patience and  no fear you can   walk off any ills.  Plant your feet firmly  upon the  good earth, look  up with nothing  between you and your Creator, and  feel for the moment that you' are  above the petty affairs of the world.  Gather in fresh air and sunshine;  express nothing but a reflection of  these, and  you   will   find much  health and happiness.   Then  all  the world will look better to you  for you will be.able to love and  appreciate all the world holds for  you.  Remember: One hour's walk  in the fresh air will change blue to  rose color.  ten years preceeding. 1910, however, was 4.79. The United States  comes next with an average rate  for the same period of 3.43.,. Perhaps the worst aspect of the situation ia the fact that the death rate  from coal mine accidents has been  steadily on the increase in Canada  for a number of years. The minimum rate of 1.83 was reached in  1897. In 1909 the rate was 4.21.  During the same time there has  been a steady decrease in all the  leading European countries.  It wouldof course, be unreasonable to expect that the loss of life  and property could be entirely  done away with, but experience  has shown that careful investigation of the conditions will point  the way to the remedying of many  abuses. That the danger inherent  in coal mining can be largely eliminated is shown by tho low, constant death rate in Belgium and  Great Britain. Coal mine explosions aro much moro frequent  in Canada'and the United States  than in any of the European  countries. The following example  is exceedingly significant. In 1850  the fatality rate in the Belgian coal  mines was as high as the .present  Canadian death rate, while at the  present time it averages the lowest  in the world. This decline in the  death rate was due to the combined efforts of the mine owners  the workmen and the Administration of Mines;;to the.diffusion of  technical and professional knowledge and to the administrative  organization for the scientific study  of accidents.  Although the death rate in  metalliferous mines in. Canada is  lower than in the coal mines, it is  much higher than in any of the  European countries. The death  rate in Canada for the period 1900  ���������1909 was 3.82.  With the exception of the Kimberly diamond -mines- and the  Transvaal, where native and  Chinese labor are employed, the  fatality rate, during this period  (1900-J909) was considerably lower  elsewhere than in Canada. It requires no discussion to emphasize  the importance of an inquiry into  the whole subject of fatal accidents  in the mines of Canada.  ���������-*������������������"���������,*"-*-r������t  H. W.

UTOPIA,  ���������zv  That .the agitation in British  Columbia against the usurpation of  the fisheries of that province by the  Japanese has begun to have the  effect of 'inducing Caucasians to  enter the business to the exclusion  of their Oriental ��������� rivals, is apparent from the statement recently  made by the Queen Charlotte Fishing Company of Vancouver, pays  the Pacific Fisherman.  ' The establishment of a strictly  "white man's" -fishing village on  the shore of Tassoo harbor, on the  west coast of Moresby island, British Columbia, is the intention of  this concern, which has started  important developments already at  the harbor and which . expects to  have a large plant ready for operations arid a large number of cottages ready for occupancy in the  spiing.  The.exclusion of Oriental labor  Will mean that the money expended for labor will remain in the  local channels of trade, and as the  payments and operating expenses  are heavy, , the amount of money  thus made to stay at home Nyill-in-  volvehuge sums at the end of the  year. ���������  , The company now has at Tassoo  Harbor a wharf and numerous  Buildings, and ou a recent voyage  of the steamship Prince Albert' of  fehie Grand-Trunk 'Pacific Company  there were landed over a hundred  tons of machinery. The company  bas a sawmill installed, and during  the winter there-will be constructed an oil refinery, a salting plant  and a small fertilizer plant,  are lots of red cedar available  jacentto-the harbor,, and in addition to the manufacturing plant's  and houses which -will be put up  .this winter, the keels of two ��������� fishing schooners, each one a 50-footer,  have- already been -laid and the'  .vessels will be launched,' fully  rigged and with gasoline engines  of-large power installed- by--the  spring. .  Tasso Harbor is one of the little  known natural harbors of the  west coast. ��������� It is landlocked, with  an inside coast Hue of 80 miles,  ���������provided with fine beaches and a  shore topography affording splendid  facilities for the establishment of  industries.    Prior to the landing  Tbere  ���������IT  ad-  of the Prince Albert recently the  only ' large vessel, that there was  any record of having gone into it  was a British war vessel, which  went in there for shelter years ago.  ��������� It is proposed to Becure the services of experienced white fishermen from the Atlantic coaBt and  from Europe, and the inquiries of  the company so far have shown  ,that there will be little trouble iu  securing these men once they have  the cottages erected to house there  families. The value of the Queen  Charlotte fishing banks t are, well  known, although not one*tenth  part of them have been located, and  within easy distance of Tassoo  Harbor there are the finest halibut  and black cod. The herring, industry also offers many inducements, and it is . the intention of  the company to have a small  salmon cannery in operution in  time for tho run of fish next year.

Last week the Mother Lode  mine shipped 5,609 tons of ore.  Last week the Emma mine shipped f>0S tons of ore.  The Riverside mine will soon  ship ore to the Granby smelter.  A smelter costing ������2,000,000  will be buiit at Goose Bay by tho  Granby Co.  A large force are working ot the  Jennie mine, near Orient.

The mine is being  operated by Chas. and "Walter  James, of Republic. A shaft has  been sunk 21S feet and a tunnel  driven S55 feet. The vein was encountered at about 600 feet from  the portal. A drift has been driven i  from tho shaft, and about 100 tons  of good iron-copper sulphide ore  lias been shipped.���������Republic News-  Miner.  Republic mines will be supplied  with electric power from Bonning-  ton Falls by the West Kootenay  Power & Light company.  - I   li MINING NEWS   I  A special to the Hazelton Miner  from Seattle gives George W.  Otterson, the prominent hydraulic  expert, as authority for the statement that a complete hydraulic  plant is being shipped from the  sound city for use on placer ground  on Gold creek, one and a half  miles from Kitselas. The plant  consists of a 14-inch 4-step centrifugal pump, weighing 10 tons, to  be operated by a 40-inch turbine  water wheel of 400 horse power  capacity. This plant will deliver  water sufficient to operate two  4-inch nozzles at a pressure of 240  pounds to the square inch.  This plant the first to be installed in British Columbia, was  form erly used on regrade work on  the streets of Seattle. Having  completed the work of tearing down  the hills of that city, it will serve  to exploit the gold-beat ing gravels  of the Kitselas district.  The provincial government has  constructed a wagon road from  Kitselas up Gold creek, allowing  the transportation of machinery  and supplies to the mines.  The   Consolidated    Mining    &  Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd.' has  issued statements of its operations  for the year ending June 30th last  and among the many mines which  this big corporation owns and operates appears the St.  Eugene at  Moyie.    This mine for the year  produced 47,705 tons of ore'which,  after milling, yielded 7,703 tons of  concentrates.    The values of these  concentrates were: silver, 204,044  ounces; lead, 9,012,152 pounds, a  total value of $429,044.    Tho mining, smelting, general aud development expenses in connection with  this property totalled 8256,001.13.  These figures show a profit for  the year of $174,083 on  the oper  ations of the St.  Eugene  alone,  An analysis of the report shows  that the ore carried 189 pounds of  lead  or roughly 9������ per cent, and  very slightly over 4 ounces of silver to the ton; less than half an  ounce of silver to each unit of lead.  The raw ore was only worth about  $0.75 at ton at tho smelter and  practically $3.50 a ton was clear  profit.  At the Standard mine, in the  Slocan, about 75 tons of ore a day  aro being taken out of the two  drifts that are being run on tho  lead in No. 6 tunnel.  This month the upraise in tho  The main feature in the Boundary district last near was the increased production of the British  Columbia Copper Co. in spite of  the curtailment of its ore shipments. The cost per ton for the  year will probably be larger on account of the increased cost of coke.  The curtailment of the Granby  company's operations, necessitated  by the coke situation, seriously affected tho production of the district.  The coming year should bo a  banner ono for the district both as  to tonnage and profits.  The British Columbia Copper Co.  which owns  64 per cent,  of the  New Dowiuion  Copper Co.,   has  this year operated the Mother Lode  mine at Dead wood camp, the Wellington,  Athelstan  and Emma at  Wellington camp; tlie Rawhide at  Phoenix;  the Napoleon  group at  Boyd's, Wash., and the Lone Star  just across the boundary line in  Washington.     The  company  also  has leases and bonds on 64 claims  in Voight's camp; on  the Copper  and Riverside claims in  Franklin  camp; the Greyhound at Deadwood  camp,  and the  L.  H.  group   at  Silverton.  In spite of curtailment on account of the coal strike, one furnace only being in operation at  present at the smelter, the company's production last year is the  largest in its history and a 10 per  cent, dividend has been declared.  The production for seven years  for purpose of comparison is given  below:  .Copper Gold ,   Silver  lbs. ozs. ozs.  r9������5  5.601,309 26,266 95������4io  1906  5,802,651 20,238 82,193  ������9������7  8,643,133 24,967 101,114  -90S  5.567>355 13.597 5S.204  ^  6,325,000 18,244 60,234  ^lo....."  7.143.456 24,862 S4,i8o  19H  9,650,000 29,600 127,000  The smelter' is built on a side  hill and gravity is used for handling the ore throughout. The railroad enters the works by nine  spurs on three different levels.  The upper ore bins have a capacity  of 2,000 tons. The customs ore  and ore to be sampled is dumped  in these from which it passes  through a 36-inch by 42-inch  Farrel-Bacon crusher driven by a  100-h.p. motor.  From the crusher the ore passes  on to a conveyor belt which delivers it through two steel boxes  from which, by an especially designed device, one-fith of the total  is taken at regular intervals and  the balance passes on to the storage  bins. The sample finally taken  by the mill represents 1-6250 part  of the whole. The mill is driven  by a 100-h.p. motor and has a  capacity of 2,000 tons in 16 hours  with 11 men.  The storage bins consist of 18  bins in two lines with a capacity of  600 tons per bin, with two coke  boxes at each eud, and 12 bins in  two lines with one large coke bin,  giving a total capacity of 12,100  tons of ore and 3,000 tons of coke.  The whole is served by five railroad spurs.  From the bins the ore is taken  by 26 charging cars with four 7|ton  electric locomotives running on 36-  inch gauge tracks to the furnaces.  There are two furnaces with 36  tuyeres 48 inches by 360 inches  and one 48 inches by 240 inches  with 24 tuyeres.   Two forohearths  are   used   to   the   furnace.    The  matte is tapped into 5-ton ladels  and carried  by a 40-ton crane to  the converter plant.   The slag is  run into pots of 250 cubic feet capacity which   are   hauled   to   the  dump. . They are so designed that  all tlie shell will dump out.   The  cars were designed hero and have  since been adopted by several of  the big American smelters.  ' The converter plant consists of  two stands of converters S4xl26  inches with seven bodies and is  equipped with a 6-foot mixing mill  for working up the linings which  are made from siliceous gold ores.  The plant has a capacity of from  40 to 50 tons of 45 per cent matte  per 24 hours.  From tho Mother Lode mine at  Deadwood camp the company  shipped last year over 300,000 tons  of ore. Its metal content averages  1.5 per cent copper, from 0.2 to  0.5 ounces silver and 0.05 to 0.10  ounces gold.  There are five ore bodies, only  three of which havo been developed.  The main ore body is from 80 to  150 feet wide and 1,S00 feet long.  The system of mining is similar  to that used in tho Granby.  Tho mine is worked by a 475  four compartment shaft with three  tunnels. Ore mined from the  upper glory holes is dropped  through raises to the 300 and 400  foot levels in which electric haulage is used. The haulageways  are double tracked and 3-ton cars  are used.  After hoisting the ore is crushed  by one 24 by 36 inch aud one 36  by 42 inch Farrell crushers and  then put through the sample mill  and loaded directly into cars. It  is seven miles from the mine to  the smelter by railroad but the  mine can be seen in. tho background of the picture of the  smelter. '  Some 1,S00 electric horse power  is used at the mine. The compressor plant consists of oue 500-  h.p. and one 625-h.p. induction  motors driving two 35-Rand drill  compressors. There is a large  machine shop, carpenter shop and  20 other mine buildings betides 20  dwellings. About 125 men are  employed.  Tho Greyhound in Deadwood  camp is being developed by diamond drilling of wliich 2,000'feet  has been driven to date. The size  of the ore bodies has not as yet  been determined.  The company also shipped 12,-  359 tons of ore from the Napoleon  mine at Boyds, Wash., and 3,0G3  tons from the Lone Star just over  the boundary line.  From the Rawhide at Phoenix  the company shipped about 800  tons per day, employing 160 men  when in full operation. The  buildings destroyed by fire in 1910  have been replaced. The mine  has been closed down off and on  on acconnt of expensive coke, but  is now being got into shape, with  a small force of men, lo resume  operations. Last year 172,000  tons of ore were shipped and it is  expected that this amount will be  greatly exceeded the coming year.  The mine adjoins the Gold Drop  of the Granby company.

Tho scorers were: Greenwood,  Lynn, 1, McDonald, 1; Bloomfield,-  1.    Grand Forks, Reid, 1.  Both teams got a great reception  on coming into line and  play  was  very exciting from the moment Mr.  Nyles took the game in hand.   The  game was remarkable for the -close  checking shown by either" side and  was marred to a certain extent by  the too frequent iise of the bell  as  the referee pulled  up the players  for some   slight   infringement of  the rules and   too   much    notice  was given to minor offsides.    This  had the effect of spoiling the game  and making it disjointed,  as  no  sooner had the players worked  up  a combined movement than tinkle  went the bell and the whole thing  was to be gone over again.    In the  end Greenwood were the winners  and thoroughly deserved  the decision.    After the game a crowd  besieged the only restaurant to be  1 c  found, and it is to be hoped that  next time Grand Forks is honored  b}' such a flock of enthusiasts that  more attention   will   be   paid   to  catering solid refreshments for the  inner man.
