Increase of Mineral Production  The production of minerals in  Canada increased from $6,000,000  in 1S7J to nearly $19,000,000 in  1891, and $������S,f>00.000 in 1905.  FromlS9l to 1905 the non-mineral  output of mining operations in  Canada increased from $13,30.^,000  to over 31,000,000. This makes  tho total value of products of .the  mine-in Canada last year. practically $100,000,000.  A better idea of the relative ini-  porfance of mining, as compared  with other industries will be  afforded by the statement that the  value of the field and fruit crops of  all Canada in 1901 is estimated in  the census-return at about $20S,-  000,000. The output of manufacturing establishments iu the, same  year was placed at $-167,000,000.  Mining is already one of the  most important industries of the  Dominion, and development along  this line is increasing more rapidly  than along anv other.  1k������  ssasfcs&e gsss^&E ������5^m^������M&%%mw,  Camp-  A.;  Pea-  J.

The  shaft is down 12 feet on the ledge,  which is about IS inches in width'  of galena carrying fair values, but  not as high grade as the'ore taken  out of the other workings, from  which shipments were made. It is  expected the'ore will increase in  value with depth, as was the ease  iu the other shafts.

The day following the issue of the  paper, the  (lag, ��������� which  had  been  borrowed for a church  fete,   was  returned to the government  office.  This, to the wide awake business  man, would indicate that an item  in the newspaper is the surest way  to reach the public.    It would also  indicate that for the awakening of  even a church conscience, there is  nothing, so'effective as an item in a  livo    newspaper.       Another     in������  stance:      The owner of a   la;ge  transfer business was asked to  advertise his business this week.   He  answered that later on  he would,  but at present he wished, to give  his stock a rest.     We suggested  that a local item be inserted to the  effect that owing to   the necessity  of giving his stock a much  needed'  rest the business will be closed   for  a couple of weeks.    To this, he answered���������"For God's sake   don't.  That would burst the concern."

This question is  ajritaling tho minds of hundreds of  people along the route from Nicola  to Princeton: No definite information on this point can be secured from the C. P. R. authorities. It is stated that the old surveys run from Nicola to Princeton,  but it is apparent the C. P. R. has  yet reached up determination as to  months.

In order to  avoid summer sickness it is necessary to eat the food nature intended we should in the heated  term. It is better to avoid flesh  and fish entirely, but when taken  the amount should be light, and  not oftener than'three times a  week.  White flour biscuits made without eggs and but little butter can  be used one-third of the week,  whole wheat biscuits two-thirds of  the time and corn bread once a  week. Except when used occasionally eggs are a poor summer  diet. Bread or biscuits with fruit  and nuts make an ideal breakfast.  If nuts are not used, drink a glass  of buttermilk clabbored milk. Eat  cheese two or three times a week  if not subject to constipation. If  subject to onstipation put the  juice of a whole lemon, without  sugar, into a glass of cold water  and drink it slowly about an. hour  before breakfast. Do nob drink  lemonade during the day. No  meal should be eaten at noon except fruit, melons, or a salad made  from lettuce cucumbers and tomatoes. Melons are not particularly good for the system when  eaten at irregular hours or with  regular meals. Do not eat more  than one kind of melon each day.  Supper should be raw aud  cooked vegetables and properly  prepared bread. We should eat  all kinds of raw vegetables. Salads all the time, nuts zwieback,  and use olive oil in place of butter.  It is a great mistake to driuk  much water in hot weather as we  should get all the fluid necessary  from the eating of raw fruits, vegetables and melons. The great desire for fluids in warm weather is  caused by eating too much stimulating and heat producing foods.  Meat, butter, potatoes, tea, coffee,  pie, pudding and cake demand  fluids soon after eating, and if  taken freely as demanded, indigestion follows, your stomach and  internal anatomy soon become like  a Chicago packing house, and gastric, bilious or typhoid fevers will  invariably follow. When digestion is retarded by the constant  drinking of water or other fluids  the food rots in your inside and  you are poisoned through your own  ignorance or foolishness.  Do not mix your food too much.  Half a dozen articles of food eaten  at the same meal may produce indigestion when one or two of them  are wholesome. You can cat all  fruit, melon and cucumbers 3-011  want, but if. you mix in with them  at the same meal pork and beans,  fried chicken and gravy, shortcake,  doughnuts, iced tea, coffee and ice  cream your stomach will rebel unless it is made of copper. Eat all  the corn you want but nothing  with it except a salad made with  lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, trace  of an onion and a dash of Halt;  lemon juice and olive oil.  Always eat seasonable foods and  eat them right. All food becomes  poison when improperly used and  from the fortunes doctors are pil  ing up it is high time that children  were taught how and what to eat.  Such an education in our public  schools would soon make a better  and happier people.  To be happy at all times should  be tho grand aimjof all mortals.

IJurftNiMH is so lively in Alberta  that in some places the grass is not  given time to grow. " '"  In China when a bank fails  manager has his head cut off.  bank failures have occurred in the  country of yellow faces for 900  years. A remedy like this might  ourc the graft in Canadian politics,  but nothing else would be of any  avail.  The game   of grab   which   the  members at   Ottawa   are   playing  with the public mouey is becoming  so petty, that it is only comparable  in its Rtesl stage to a ludicrous  scramble for pennies. ��������� At the discussion in the House the other day  of   the   indemnioy   question,    an  amendment was made  providing  for reasonable living expenses to  members and Senators when traveling to and from Ottawa to attend  the session.    Those who live four  hundred miles or more from  the  capital, instead of living expenses  will receive S15 per day,  one trip  each way between their residence  and Ottawa each session.    It must  be borne in mind that this $15  per  day is simply for living expenses  and does not include railway   fare  or Pullman.    For example, a British Columbia member in going to  attend the parliamentary session,  would draw on the country for his  railway and Pullman car expenses  to the amount say  of $86.50,   and  then for the six days the journey  would occupy, he would draw another S90, or 176.50  in   all.     As  the fortunate possessor of a railroad  pass, his journey across the continent would cost him 818  for  his  Pullman and about  814   for   his  meals, or 832 in all, leaving him a  balance to to the good as a result  of his legislative journey, of $144.-  50.   These details may seem petty  but when we find  the   Canadian  Parliament    descending   to   such  methods to secure a few dollars to  its members, it is quits justifiable  to put the nibtter in  its   proper  light.    The increase of its indemnity was an   utterly unjustifiable  act, but as it was a large  pull the  outcries which were excited  were  of an indignant character.    It is a  larcenous world at best,  however,  the and the grab being accomplished  j^0 the public forgave the members for  yielding to their natural instinct.  But to extort the small sum on the  ground of living expenses   while  traveling, will be regarded as the  contemptible covetousness of small  minds.���������Province.

The  question in disputo was the possession of a piece of land at Lova  which each village claimed. A  few days ago* the court at������ oSTice  definitely settled "the matter by dividing the laud- equally betweeu  the villages.  ; "The total cost of this lawsuit during the 440 years amounts to $150,-  000,-while the value of the land in  dispute was about $2,000.

A "Strad" Discovery  Another genuine Stradivarius  has been bought for a trifle, not in  an old continental music shop iu  the back shop of an ancient city,  but in a Water street  store, Vancouver  Rhys, of 1552 Granville street,  noticed an old violin with two  strings on it in the shop window.  The proprietor asked ������25 for it.  Mr. Von Rhys said he only had  $7 in his pocket. The dealer offered to accept that, but Mr. Von  Rhys said he wanted to keep a  couple dollars for pocket money.  The dealer let the violin for five  dollars. Mr. Von Rhys took it  home, scraped the old paint off it,  and had it re-strung. A couple of  friends who aro musicians, tried it.  One of them remarked:���������If I did  not know where you got it, I'd say  it was a Strad. A little more polishing aud a closer examination  showed that he was right in his  conjecture. "Mr. Von Rhys was at  once offered $500 for it. He refused and the offer was increased  to $1000.'

A negro servant, wishing  to got married, a������ked his master to  buy him a license in tho neighboring town.   Tho nuistor being in  a  hurry, did not ask the name of the  woman, but as he drove along he  reflected on the many tender attentions that he had seen John lavish  upon Euphemia Wilson, the cook,  and concluding there could be  no  mistake, had the license made out  in ber name.   There's your license  to marry Euphemia, he said to the  servant that   night.     You're   as  good as married already and you  only owe me two dollars.     The  darkey's face fell.    Bnt Mass' Tom,  Euphemia Wilson ain't the lady  I'se gwine to marry.     Dat wan't  nothin' ino'n a little flirtation���������  Georgiana Thompson, thela'ndress  is the one I'se   gwine   to   marry.  Oh, well,  John,   said the master,  amused and irritated at tho  same  time, there's no great harm done,  I'll get  you   another license tomorrow, but it will cost you two  dollars more, of course-   The next  morning the darkey came  out  to  the carriago as it was starting for  town,   and,    leaning   confidently,  over the wheel, said:   Mass' Tom,  you  needn't  get   me   no    udder  license; I'll use the one I'se   got.  i'se been thiukin'  it over   in   de  night, an' to   tell   you   de   troos,  Mass' Tom,  de conclusion of my  jedgmentis dat dar ain't two .dollars' diff'rence between dem two  ladies. .   Too Many Rascals  Lonoox.���������A great proportion of  the people in society are rascals; in  fact we are all more or less rascals'.  The dictum is G. B. Shaw's. It  was uttered in the course of an address to well-to-do persons on behalf of a crusade against the evils  of lead-glazing amon^ the pottery  workers. Mr. Shaw asked his  hearers if they cared whether the  plates from which they ate had  given some poor wretch paralysis  from llead poisoning, adding sarcastically, If you care you are getting on..  His faith in the real sympathy of  his hearers was evidently weak.  He proceeded to denounee the rascality of the employers of the industry.   He said:���������  Even you, good people, who  have what you facetiously call independent means, aro more or less  rascals. A great deal of the  means you enjoy is made in a 'rascally way, even those in which I  see in so many beau tiful hats and  costumes before me.  His Socialistic denunciations  boxed the compass. He dubbed  politics society's most dangerous  amusement, aud coming to Chicago's exposures, he said it was  curious to observe that not one  note of concern was uttered in behalf of the poor wretches who  tinned the meat. It was all for  the consumer and the beef itself.  divers of the Mediterranean.     It  Ml  attacks many of the best men���������  those who go down deepest and  stay longest under water���������and is  supposed to bo caused by the swift  changes from from one pressure of  water to another that tho diver  undergoes. This paralysis makes  the diver quite helpless out "of  water, yet under water it disappears altogether. To -the oyster  beds of Ceylon and the sponge fisheries of the Mediterranean ' many  of the bast divers are carried like  infants. . Helpless as logs, they lie  in a row on the decks in the sunshine till their turn comes to descend. Then in Ceylon the pearl-  diver is carried to the boat's edge.  He sits there, his hands on his  knees, as if lost in thought,���������he is  getting his breath���������and suddenly  he rolls awkwardly into the water.  And tho instant he disappears all  his agility returns to him, and as  easily as a boy would dive five feet  after a white stone he dives over a  hundred feet after the hidden  pearls.

Placer Silver In Cobalt  Con.vr/r. ��������� So far as Cobalt is  concerned, a- new feature of tin'  , mining is the introduction of the-  hydraulic pyst-em. Tho proposition is to wash tin; sunuee e.-irtli  . off the bed rock by a stream from  . a one and a half inch mw.lo.  The experiment will lie  interesting,, as it will test the possibility of  .���������hydraulic mining for silver i:i  this  .district.     Some time ago  several  ..large nuggets  were  found  on  Li  ��������� Rose property, while it was  forced  v'upon  the  owners that' the muck  .andsoil contained much  finely  divided silver, to snob an   extent-in  . fact that a great deal of soil was  ibagged and shipped to the smelter.  <A gold-panful of muck,   on  being  washed,   would give   a-  first-class  . prospect.  v    A likely discovery was made  on  ".felle McKinlr-y  and   Darragh,   the  .Watts property, and,   last  of all,  the "Wiley property.    The  nuggv.ts  .and the free silver in the soil upon  ,obe Wiley claim  have  not as  yet  ,'oe.en traced,  so  their origin  is   a  (���������mystery, but in the  other  properties the  parent vein has been  lo-  .cated.    All this,  however,   points  .to the possibility of  a  monstrosity  .in mining, and that is a placer silver proposition.
