A blue mark hero indicates that yonr Subscription hag  lieooino deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like to cominiino with yonr collateral.  GETTYSBURG  JListokv repeats itself. -There  was a boom in GettyHbnrg last  week  for  the  first; time   in   I  fifty  years. It was in ISC" that Lee  made, a dash fco the north and  drilled into some haul rook at  Gettysburg,  through as the  hoys in   bine had  plugged the formation with missed  .holes and other tilings that aro not  good for the health.    About 7,000  men  lost their lives,  and 30,000  moro   were  disabled    in   the   unpleasant a Hair, in addition to ruining tlie peach crop of tho village  for   thafc   summer.    It   was here  tliat Pickett  with 15,000 Johnnies  charged across a mile of open space  and    hutted   into   tho   live   wire  artillery of the Union army.    The  spectacle was grandly terrible and  splashed the blue and gray with  red.    Such a sight  will probably  never   again   be   seen   upon   the  American continent.    The defeat  of Pickett's charge was the turning point in  the American  War.  It was then that tho backbone of  the Lost Cause was broken,   although it was twenty-one months  after that before the brave men  of  the South, starved and beaten to a  ragged    finish,    clustered   around  Lcc as  he  handed  his sword  to  Grant at Appomattox.    It is not  generally known that 70,000 Canadians   fought   in   the   American  "War.     Without   their   aid   it   is  quite likely that the ending of that  great and   bloody  family quarrel  would have been somewhat different.  The re-union of the blue and the  gray at Gettysburg last week was a  new event in  fche annals  of the  military.    For  more than  50,000  soldiers  of  both sides to  meet on  the battle ground of fifty years ago  is certainly out of the ordinary,  and  makes a   precedent   for   the  ���������world.    The average age   of   the  ���������veterans  was seventy years,  and  tho excitement of the event  will  cause fche death  of many of them.  Tn fact several died last week from  nafcural  causes,  hastened  by   the  excitement, upon tho very ground  where half a century ago they escaped alive from the bullet laden  ozone  of  "Cemetery Ridge," and  the   "Peach   Orchard."      A   blot  upon the re-union  last week  was  the drunken condition of  many of  the veterans  who took a drop too  much at tho wide-open saloons in  the town.    If martial law had prevailed iu   regard to the sale   of  liquor the grand and unique celebration would have  been stripped  of many unpleasant incidents. The  hand of time makes many great  changes for wo havo been told that  all the veterans of the great battle,  who   camped   on   fche   old   battle  ground last week wero officers during tho first three clays of July,  1863.  Canada prayors aro already being  offered   up for a downfall of the  wot stuff.    The heafc has been fcer-  riblo in  tho oast  whilo in B.C.   it  has boon  almost too cool for this  time of tho year.    We expect a  spell of hot and dry weather beforo  many days.

This  province is a glorious place during  the hot days and tho fact should be  advertised that no ono ever dies  from sunstroke or heat prostration.

When* alive the Duke of Sutherland owned 1,500,000 acres of  land. Since his death six feet is  all ho needs.  Big Copper Strike  What gives promise of developing into tho most promising mining  discovery in Montana sines R.  Hickey located in Anaconda, and  thus paved the way for developing  the wonderful Butte. Hill, is that  of a copper property in the Flathead county, Western Montana,  thirty miles south of the Great  Northern railway, near (Jorum,  and about five mile.*-* east of the  south fork of the Flathead river.  . The vein is from 10 to 12 feet  wide, extends along the stiil'iiee for  many miles and tho ore. assays from  a minimum of l-l per cent copper  and S ounces silver, to 60 per cent  copper and 25 ounces silver.  Everything that goes for to lay the  foundation for success of a mining  camp exists in connection with the.  field. TheQcountry is heavily timbered and tliere is a water grade  from the vein to the nearest possible  shipping point. The Great Northern is now engaged iu building a  line that will go within four miles  of the property, and the Milwaukee  will run a parallel mad there, loo,  thus affording facilities for haulage  of ore to the smelters, ns the. roads  will place the future mines in direct touch with Great Falls and  Spokane.  Many prominent mining men,  some of them in Butte, have located  claims in the district and Ben  Thresher, one of fche original discoverers, is now on the scene, representing thc Flathead Development Co., composed of General  Charles S.'Warren, L. O. TOvans,  and John M. Murphy of Butte, V.  D. Williamson and Fred Oliver, of  Spokane, and Al Ingraham and Dr.  W. II. Campbell, of Kalispel. It  is thought that the new district  may surpass Butte as a copper producer.  A*?;  Place your orders  For  McCormick and Deering Cutting  1 Machinery, Binders, Mowers andJRakes  FERRY, -  WASH.

Although Cecil Khodes was accused of being a business pirate, he  uttered a truism when in a speech,  given shortly before his  death,   ho  summarized thevalueof the mining  industry in the   following   words:  "Mining has been   the  foundation  of the world's wealth from  the beginning of time.    The governments  rich in minerals have always  been  tho richest  and  strongest  governments on earth.

Every blow of  his  pick,  every echo of his drill adds  to  the  wealth of every man's business  in  the world.    Tho miner of precious  minerals it not  a business   pirate.  Mining is the only business on this  earth that increases tho  wealth   of  the world without robbing  or  infringing upon the rights of others.''

A fine black cat of superior breed  was received not long ago by express in the town of Thorold, Ont.  It had come from Trail, B. C,  2500 miles away. When its owner  a young lady was about to travel  and could no longer take care of  hor pet, she did not abandon it an  so many havo been known to do.  but provided for its safe paswago to  friends at another home.  It was comfortably housed in a  roomy box, on which was a placard  with this inscription: "My name  is Rastus. Please feed me good  milk once a day, and beyond that  I can nibblo tho crusts provided  until I reach home." The waybill accompanying it bore records  of the feedings along tho route, and  showed that puss had not wanted  for friends or food ou his loug  journey.  The strango shipment created a  groat deal of interest along tho way.  Children by the score expressed  their sympathy with tho traveler,  realizing that ho had journeyed  more miles than moHt of them had.  Rastus arrived in the best of health  and climbed out of his box homo an  fresh as when ho had entered it.  The Northern News  states   that  ii gas company will   sink   a   well  3000 reel, near Athabasca.    It  has  contracted to deliver 250,000  feet  of gas daily within a year.    Gas is  nnt the only commodity  that  this  company wishes to obtain.    Chances are exceedingly  good  that oil  and asphaltum may also bo struck  at a reasonable depth,   as  both  of  these minerals abound in this  territory, but whatever success is met  with, the company will continue to.  bore to a depth of .������>0OO feet, unless  a force of gas or oil is  struck  sufficiently   strong  to  make  further  drilling   an   impossibility.     After  this depth has been   reached,   tho  oilicials of tho  company   will  feel  satisfied that   they   have already  struck the main body of gas,   provided that no greater strike is made  during   the   drilling.     Machinery  capable of boring to this enormous  depth will very shortly be  on  the  ground and operations   will   commence as soon as it arrives.    Matthew Lodge,   of Monkton,   ]Sr, B.,  the first man ta strike gas in  New  Brunswick, was a visitor to Athabasca last fall and while  hore. Mr.  Lodge was much interested  in the  the town from a gas and  oil  view  point.    There was no place in Canada that he considered  had  better  prospects,   in   this   respect,   than  Athabasca and it is very probable  that he will   be   up through  this  country again shortly.

Ben Franklin Valued Time  Benjamin Franklin sagely said:  "Dost thou love life? Then do  not squander time, for that is the  ���������"���������tuff that life is made of!" Franklin not only understood tho value  of timo, but put a price upon it  that made others appreciate its  worth.  A man came in one day and  picked out a book that ho wished  to purchase. The prico that tho  clerk asked was not satisfactory.  He insisted on seeing the proprietor.  Mr. Franklin hurried from tho  rear of the store at the clerk's  summons.  "What is the lowest price you  can take for this book, sir'-"' asked  tho customer leisurely.  "Ono dollar aud a quarter," was  the torso reply.  "One dollar and a quarter?  Why, your clerk asked mo only a  dollar just now."  "True," said Franklin, "aud I  could bettor afford to tako a dollar  than leave my work."

It is estimated that the amount of  work still on hand exceeds 000,000  tons, but tho bulk of this will not  be launched this year. Even under  the most favorable circumstances it  could not bo done and there in  always the unfortunate possibility  of labor troubles.  The work on hand includes  every conceivable type of steamer-  battleships, battle cruisers, torpedo  boat destroyers, and submarines for  the British Admiralty; quadruple,  triple aud twin-screw, turbines, as  well as combination and ordinary  streamers; cargo steamers for almost every nationality, dredges for  the Suez and Panama canals,  motor-driven vessels for coasting  and general purposes, and yachts  of overy description.  There aro seven firms on the  Clyde which do work regularly for  tlie Admiralty and five of them are  equipped for turning out the highest class of battleship. All the  principal shipbuilding firms on tho  Clyde do their own engineering,  which means that the vessels they  build are completed entirely by  their own men, while somo concerns do shipbuilding only and  send their vessels to bo engined by  firms who make engineering their  only business.  It is generally hold that there is  a large amount of business to be  placed, but that same is withhold  owing to the abnormal price of raw  material and the high C08t of labor.  In this connection, it may bostated  that a local firm of shipowners  placed an order for now tonnage in  Franco recently, as thoy found that  u nil 0 r existing circumstances  French shipbuilders could offer better terms and quicker delivery than  those on tho Clydo.

As nearly as can he ascertained It is  a hundred years since Napoleon Bonaparte's soldiers Introduced the old-new  style of leg wear which speedily secured recognition as the distinctively  masculine garment of civilians throughout two continents.  In 1814��������� the year before Waterloo-  it was related as n current news Item  of some importance that the great  Duke of Wellington had been refused  admittance to Almack's in London because ho presentud himself wearing  trousers instead of the* conventional  breeches which the dress regulations  then in vogue demanded.  As a inn!ter of historical fact trousers have been worn by various races  and by both sexes In all the ages of  which any authentic' records exist  Generally speaking, trousers were re-  gurded In ancient times as symbolical  of Inferiority or olVemlnucy. In the  triumphal processions or the Caesars,  for example, prisoners of war wore  them as n sign of defeat, while the  sturdy logs of Koine's vl'-loriotis legions  were bare below ihe bottom of the  skirted or kilted coat of m.-i'll.

The fumes of  Iodine that at once rise can cither be  applied directly to the affected part or  collected.in a jar and applied by means  of a syringe.

The British Columbia Copper  company produced 34,500,255 lbs.  of copper in tbe four year period  from January, 1909, to December  31, 1912, according to a report just  issued. The operating cost, after  deducting tbe gold and silver, was  9.82 cents in 1909, 9.04 cents in  1910, 11.03 cents 1911 and 12.So  in 1912 for each pound of output.  Based on the average price per  pound for copper the dividend cost  was 11. G2 cents in 1909, 12 cents  in 1910, 1.1.9 cents iu 1911 and  15.9.1 cents in 1912. Tbe ton cost  of ore including all the processes  from mining to marketing, was  82. (SS in 1909, $2.73 in 1910. $2.SS  in VJI.L and S2.45 in 1912.  A new discovery has been made  on tlie Union claim, located at  Gloster City, some 45 miles up the  North Fork of Jvetfcle river, the ore  being a gold-silver composition.  The claim is owned by Louis John-  sou who has a force of men at  work constructing a wagon road  from his property to the present  end of the government wagon road,  preparatory to the shipment of the  ore hy wagon to Lynch Creek  where it will be loaded on Kettle  Valley cars and brought.to the  (J ran by Smelter, this city, for  treatment.

C. iWINC NEWS  o  OOOO oooooooooooooooooo oooo  One of the pecularities of the  stock market is tho recent drop in  the price of the Standard shares.  Out of a total of two million  shares, there are only 320,000 on  the market. These wero acquired  by Patsy Clark. Tho remainder  of the shares are owned by John  A. Finch and Geo. H. Aylard.  These are not on the market. Mr.  Aylard has repeatedly been offered  SI.50 for small blocks of his holding but would not sell. There is  no reason why the Standard shares  should not be jgy.OO instead of.  31.35.    Today tbo owners of the  Writing to Tho Ledge from  Rossland, E. Jacobs says:  On June 21 The Engineering  and Mining Journal, New York,  stated that "the Granby Consolidated Co. has secured a two-years  lease ou tho Mount Andrew copper mine on Prince of Wales Island, southeast Alaska, which was  located more than 15 years ago by  by the late Samuel Lichtenstadter,  of Seattle, and is ono of the best  known copper properties of the  north. More than $250,000 is to  be expended, according to tho  terms of the lease, in the development of the property. The work  of gathering men will begun at  once, and within a year the mine  will be shipping. The lease was  made with an option to purchase  at the end of two years."  Joe Trainor, who somo years  ago was foreman at the Sunsot  mine, in Deadwood camp, is now  in charge of operations at tho Dividend mine, Kruger mountain,  Osoyoos, where ore of good grade  is being taken out, hauled to the  railway at Oroville in a 5-ton  motor-truck, and taken thence to  the smeltery.  George Cook has been working  with Andy Jensen's road-making  gang a few miles beyond Tulameen  city. Now that the snow is going  off, George is preparing to hikefor  the hills, to do more prospecting  in the Hope mountains, just over  majority interest in the Standard  could if they   wished,  truthfully J*1"*- 1>ivida iwm   Summit   camp.  make the statement that the Stand-J Last summer  he staked on   the  ard has sniliciont ore in sight to  continue the present dividends for  ten  years.    This is a fact.    The  Record has not at any time unduly boosted mining in the Slocan,  believing that tho actual conditions  were suflicient advertising. The  Record predicts that, under the  present management, iu the next  ten years the Standard company  will pay upwards of five million  dollars in dividends. ���������Slocan Record.  Hope slope and, too, ho has a  claim in Ranger Camp, well up  from the Tulameen side.  J. C. Reilly, who eight to ten  years ago was in the Boundary district, ia one of tho best-known  claim-owners in SummifcO camp,  Tulameen. He has one good  showing on a group down the  river a couple of miles from tbe  mouth of Sutter creek, in sevoral  of tho claims of which somo Coalmont people have been interested,  but latevly they appear to have got  "cold feet," aud have left him to  keep the show going alone. With  Andy Jensen who named Treasure  Mountain, on which he located the  Silver Chief in August, 190(1.'and  afterwards with Billy Wade staked  tbo Lakeview, Silver Plate, Copper  Queen, Black Bear, and other  claims, Reilly owns the Carbonate,  situated about two miles up Sutter  creek from tho mouth, and on  which thero is one of the big showings of Summit camp.  Tho British Columbia Copper  Co, continues tn be busy on Copper mountain, Similkameen, having live diamond drills afc work in  different parts of Princess and  Sunset camps, and doing a lot of  exploratory work underground on  various claims. Home of the piles  of oro afc the mouths of prospect  shafts include a fair proportion of  nice looking copper ore ami it is  hoped that a siillicic-ntly large tonnage will lie developed to warrant  taking up the options on a number  of the many claims explored. Mr.  and Mrs. Weeks last month took a  short vacation, during which they  enjoyed a few weeks on Slocan  lake and a (lying visit to Banff, returning before the end of the  month to their cottage in Princess  camp. Ed. Berryman and his  good wife still have their home in  Voigt's camp, but as no work is  now being done in that part of  Copper mountain district, tho former rides daily to his work higher  up tho hill. H. B. Cannon has removed his store from Voigt's to  Princess camp and continues fco be  popular with the boys, who find  Hughie "allrighfc."  O. E. LeRoy, of tbe Geological  Survey of Canada, is expected to  arrive in Rossland from Ottawa  about the 12th insfc. Rossland is  making preliminary arrangements  to entertain the International  Geological Congress excursionists  who will visit that camp during the  latter part of August.  Colonel Egan is still in the Sisters hospital at Rossland, very ill,  but his many friends hope to soon  see him around again as cheery as  ever. Meanwhile W. K. I'M ing is  kept busy supplying copy to the  printer for his interesting paper,  the "Miner."  The B. C. Copper Co.* has decided to put in afc the old smeltery  at Boundary Falls some concentrating plant with which to reduce  the percentage of silica iu ore from  its Lone Star and Washington  mine and so make a product more  suitable for smelting witb ores  from its other mines in the district.  Frank Coryell, for years a resident of Midway and afterwards  owner of thc first ranch near  Grand Forks bought by tbe Douk-  hobors, recently returned from  Franklin camp, up the north fork  of Kettle river, lo Grand Forks.  Me say the showings of ore on the  Union claim, from which L. Johnson has been arranging to ship  about 100 tons, to be hauled in  wagons to Lynch creek and be  taken thence to the smeltery by  rail, and he thinks Johnson has a  greater width of ore than he claims  to have. Those interested in  Franklin camp aro very hopeful  that tho smelting works will bIiow  this ore to be of much higher average value than ores from that  camp have in the past been found  to contain, and that Johnson's results will encourage other claim  owners to "get in and dig," and  so help the camp along. It is reported that tho B. C. Copper Co.  will shortly resume tho work of  prospecting somo claims in the  camp held by it under option of  purchase.  THE MORMONS  Post Hole Pete  At fche Presbyterian Assembly in  Toronto Wm. Shearer said that  "Southern Alberta lias already  become a stronghold of Mormonism.  Four of them settled in Cardsfcon  in 1SSG; today they number S,000,  and aro scattered over the province.  In the archives of the Department  of the Interior a report commends  the Mormons for their industry,  but at the same time a solemn note  of warning is given against the  immigration of these people, and  it is suggested that some decisive  action he taken in the beginning to  prevent tho growth in this new  country of a power that, beginning  in such a small way in tho United  States, has for years past set the  law at defiance. The writer goes  on to quote from an authorit}' to  the effect thafc "the Mormon religion is so arrogant in its claims, so  baseless in 'its origin, and so unchristian in its doctrines and practices that it excites the intense disgust of all thinking people. Its  history has been bad, its doctrines  are detestable, and some of its  practices such as polygamy and  celestial marriage rites are exceedingly reprehensible to the ordinary  Christian."  Mr. Shearer in proceeding states  that today the Church of the Latter  Day Saints holds the balance of  political power in seven of tho  Western States, and boasts tbat it  will do the same in Alberta before  ten years. "At tho present rate  of progress it will easily do so," he  says. "It has bought a tract of  thc finest land in Alberta, 07,500  acres, which it is colonizing with  Utah Mormons. It has built a  830,000 academy at Raymond,  equipped with important Mormon  teachers, where scores of young  men are trained for mission work  among Gentiles, all non-Mormon.  It will erect at Cardston a temple  to cost about S200,000 for the celebration of its secret lites and ceremonies. This is the only temple  outside of Utah, where there aro  four. It is at present carrying on  a propaganda of proselytism iu  Southern Alberta on a huge scale,  the chief point of assault being  Calgary."  All a woman asks is to be allowed fco go her own way and take her  husband with her.  The person who bears burdens  cheerfully may be stupid, but lie is  a social treasure.  Amongst the interestiug characters who arrived here recently  must be raontioued "Post Hole  Pete," wanderer, crude philosopher  and'digger of post holes extraordinary. Pete earned his peculiar  appellation during tho time he  was working on a Montana ranch  in tho "early days." Pete's employer became involved in a lawsuit which- took him to the city  many leagues distant from the  ranch whoro Poto was engaged  digging post holes in a given direction until his return. Pete kept  on tho job. The rancher was detained many moons, and Pete dug  a lino of post holes clear across the  state of Montana and ovor tho  Canadian border. The matter became an international problem and  threatened to disrupt the diplom-  tic relations of two world powers.  Finally tho boss returned, and had  to come across to Peter for tho line  of excavations. Further wo have  Pete's assurance that ho was later  paid six cents each to fill the post  holes up again, and ho. collected  many large silver dollars therefor*.  ���������Fort George Herald.
