POLITICAL CORRUPTION  '���������The trouble about political corruption is that it is never open and  straightforward," said Frank J.  Rice, the reform mayor of New  Haven.  "Political corruption is circuitous, indefinite; yon can never  put your finger on it.  "No, sir; I never sold my vote  to nobody," a man once Baid to  me.  "But George," said I. "I. saw  the rival candidate give you $5  only two day before the election."  "Yes," said George. "I don't  deny that. He didn't give me $5  for my vote, though. He just  gave it to me'for nothing and  when a man comes along and gives  yon $5 for nothing, why it's no  more than common decency to vote  for him for nothin' in return."  A.  S.

Exports  have been ^large recently and the  situation is very satisfactory.  The February statistics, showing  a smaller output than- that for  January while the deliveries were  larger, must be regarded as decidedly encouraging.���������Boston Commercial.

Hail to the good old summer  time! The hens will soon be laying eggs in our backyard.  The man who smokes over half  an ounce of tobacco daily, is liable  to go blind or die of tobacco heart  The country is safe, for so far  this year no ethereal individual has  brought us in a load of vernal  poetry.    Insane and ignorant people always work for themselves. They  do not know how to co-operate for  the good of all.  It is said that no judge can do  justice to those who appear before  him, if he eats a breakfast composed of eggs, bacon and coffee.  The good do not need churches,  creeds or parsons. Only the  wicked need salvation, and usually  they hunt for it in the wrong way  and place. '  Ix the world we find more medical than religious superstitution.  The vaccination delusion is one of  the most filthy and dangerous  practised by the medical profession.  We are punished by our sins,  and they cannot be washed away  by prayer, church or creed. Nature's laws must be obeyed in order  to obtain freedom from pain or  misery.  In Vancouver the majority of  the people worship the dollar, and  want to get rich over night. That  is why tbo devil and his agents are  kept so busy in that city. He  who makeB a god of money will  never have much peace of mind.  "Love," said Nietzsche, "is be-  , *-**������  yond good and evil;" which  amounts to very much the same as  the meaning ol the Bible where it  states that "love is the fulfilling of  the law." The idea is that all our  moral codes, our rules and conduct and canons of righteousness  are imperfect, feeble efforts to do  what can only be accomplished by  a primitive instinct. For, as Berg-  son ' teaches, all philosophy gets  around by and by to the conclusions of the instincts.  One has gained a great deal  when he has grasped this truth.  For the right sort of folks the sense  of "ought" cannot be gainsaid;  and to live in daily conflct with  one's feeling of duty is intolerable.  But when we attempt to get our  thoughts, words and deeds lined up  by rule to agree with our moral  convictions, we find the task hopeless. We are always breaking  down. -Human aature is always  tripping us.  It is a relief then to find the  remedy in this very human nature  itself, in its most primeval instinct,  love.  This world and the heaven above  it,, is for lovers. Let us love,  nobly, wholly, loyally, gladly, and  we have all* the ten commandments, moral precepts and religions  ceremonies in solution in our  hearts. - ���������  For such a love there is no-law.  Although we have not heard  from Bill or Dan since they got  their titles, we hear 'that Bill has  gone to Holland to borrow 8200,-  000,000 or more for the Canadian  Northern railway. At this rate  the Dutch will soon have Canada  as well as Holland.  Fools and children tell the truth,  and generally at the wrong time.  NiIThe fellow who is disappointed  in love generally lives to bo glad  of it.  Why do .we hate whatever is  good for ue? And why is anything  that does us good usually disagreeable? The child wants to load its  stomach with sweets, which are injurious. The higher liver likes  wines and rich food, which gives  him rheumatism and dyspepsia.  The fat man loves to sit, whereas  he ought to be skipping about and  getting rid of the overplus. The  lean and nervous woman wants to  be ever busy whilst she should*rest  more and grow fat.  So there it is. It is really true  that what you need is what you  don't want. And the reason of it  is this': That is what is called  health is really power, life-dynamic, and those things do y'ou good  that calls this forth, exercise and  develop it.  -. Those races become strongest  which have to combat snow and  ice and bad weather generally; in  ideal climates mankind rots.|  We --should grow full. of moral  microbes if it were not for "the  world the flesh and the devil,"  which we must keep fighting continually.  The human being ought to be in  the constant presence of an abstacle  and enemy.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  Yet' there are more way 6f swindling in love than most persons  realize. The pretty, coquettish'  girl in her teens who makes a business of breaking hearts does not  like to hear herself termed a swindler. '.'Her suitors risk all of their  affection ancl get nothing in return.  They.feel that they have not been  dealt with fairly in the sweet game  of'love. But the arch culprit is beyond punishment.  It iB a greater matter by far  when a man is a love swindler.  He knows that he is not dealing  fairly when ho sets to work assiduously to gain the love of an innocent maiden if he is aware that he  is not in a position to marry.  The, pity  is that ho is beyond  tho ban of the law in perpetrating  so serious a swindle.    Many a bo-  witched   young   widow   has   the  name of being a   love   swindler,  which  is  most  unfair.    It is not  her fault, and may not be her wish  to  bo attractive.    If she refuses a  score of lovers without accepting  one it is nothing but what, they need  expect.   She is too careful a student  of human'nature to leap into matrimony a second time without due  consideration.    The score of   unsuccessful rivals should not retif-o  crest fallen  from  the field under  the itnpresBion that they have been  swindled  out of her affections by  the  successful   man.    In  such   a  race for love each should, be satisfied with a fair field.and no favor.  *   *i-    *i-  The man who marries a woman  and does not give her all the love  of an individual heart is the worst  of swindlers.    Her only redress or  balm is in the love of her children.  He swindles her not only by cheating her of love,  but of happiness  and peace as well.    No women can  feel thoroughly content if she realizes that her husband realizes one  disposition    towards    her   before  guests and is   quite   the   reverse  when they aro alone together.    It  is a cruel swindle for either a man  or a woman to hide his or her real  nature during the courting' days���������  for  a man to find after marriage  that he is tied to a shrew or for a"  woman to discover that her husband is a veritable martinet in the  household, with exasperating rules  which he forces the family to obey.  Once in awhile there are swindlers who aro cleverly caught at  their own game.    For instance, the  fortune   hunter    who   marries   a  woman  for her supposed   wealth  finds out that her poor old dad has  been keeping up appearances to get  his daughter married well and that  his name has been  added to the  list of bankrupts as soon as the  marriage ceremony is over.���������Laura  Jean Libbey.  body and nerves.  Just'enough brains to know how  to do any of these things normally, and just enough love and  human kindness in her heart to  enjoy and give joy to those around  her. ',' '  Such a woman can not be too  thin or too fat. She must be a  normal woman as God intended  her to be. '  Remember: In judging woman  and her charms it is the point of  view that influences the judge. -  Lillian Russell.  Get What You Want  Thin Women  Love Swindlers  Everything  pertaining to  love  shonld be open end above board.  A Russian princess has declared  that American women of society  are too painfully thin.  That may be joyful news to the  haunted, hungry women who have  a sylphlike figure.  The tendency of American women  to go into anything they do thoroughly is inclined to cause them  to overdo their fads, so that when  their banting and training, dieting  or exercising has tho desired effect  they keep up the work until they  are emaciated and miserably ill.  Too much dieting will destroy  the lining of the stomach and ruin  it for all time. Too much exercise will weaken the-female organs and make delicate women  masculine.  Not one ounce of flesh lost by  starvation is health gained. 'Fat'  and 'bones' are both an unhealthy  condition. It is the normal woman  who enjoys health, round, plump  and vigorous, with just enough  exerciee to keep her blood stirring,  and active, just enough food to  nourish her system and keep the  crow's feet and hollows from her  face, just enough sleep to rest her  Get .what you want in this  world. It's hero waiting for you.  All you havo to do is to reach for  it. If you reach hard enough  you'll get it, no matter what it is.  Suppose you aro foolish enough to  want great wealth. You can get  it, but to get it you must make up  your mind that you want it above  everything else iu the world.  Observe an industrious alien  with a push-cart. He wants a  tliousa'nd dollars. He sleeps in a  cellar. He rises, at four. He  works till teu at night. -He denies  himself food to save. Some day  ho will have his thousand dollars.  "But," you protest, "I cant  sleep in a cellar. I'm above running a push-cart." -Very well  then. , There is little likelihood  that you will ever be rich. There  are other things that you want  more than wealth���������your comfort  your social position.  Suppose you are more sensible.  Suppose that it is success you  want. Good! There are a few  joys in this world that can compare with the joys of achievement.  Set your mark and start climbing  towards it. You'll reach it if you  keep at it. Be persistent and be  patient. If you are in Nova Scotia  you can't wish yourself in Califor-  nia. You can't get there over-  nighD, either. But you will get  there sometime if yon start and  keep going, even if you go on your  hands and knees.  *  But remember ' this���������No man  ever climbs higher than the mark  he sets himself. No man ever  reaches the top walking sideways.  No man achieves who keeps turning back. And one thing more���������  Pick your apple carefully before  you start to climb the tree.

Must Have Licenses  Important changes to the Game  Protection Act of British Columbia  are set forth in an amending measure introduced in the House by  Hon. W. J. Bowser, attorney-  general.  This  measure provides,  among  other things, that it shall be unlawful for any resident of the province  to hunt animals or birds or  to carry firearms of any description,  or air guns, or any device for the  purpose of capturing any animal  or {bird without first taking out a  licence.    In addition to taking out  a licence, hunters will be required  to wear a badge showing the number of their licence.   These licences  will be not transferable. Any breach  of the act involves cancellation of  a hunter's licence.    Licences will  not bo issued to boys under sixteen  except at the written request of  parents or guardians,   who shall  undertake that such boys,  when  carrying firearms,  will always be  under   their  supervision   or  that  of-     Boine     responsible  ' licence  holder.    There are three classes of  licences:   an   ordinary,   to   carry  firearms and hunt birdB and deer,  other than moose, wapiti and cari-'  boo, costing $2.50; a general,  to  hunt game, birds and animals, $5;  a special,  to carry firearms and  trap, $10.   Holders of general or  special licence must,  within fourteen days of date of expiration, return the licence to the provincial  game warden  with a sworn state  ment of the number of each species  of* big game or animals trapped.  Prospectors having t a free miner's  certificate may ' obtain ordinary  licences during-the open- season  while actually engaged-in prospecting; so may farmers and their Bona  hunting on the lands on which they  permanently reside*. Any firearms  found in the possession of any person not having' a licence may be  ceased and confiscated. . ,   .  It is provided that no person  shall act as hunters' guide without  having taken a licence. '. Every  guide so licenced must flrequire  every person whom'he serves as  guide' to produce . for inspection  that person's firearms' licence, and  failure to do so constitutes -a  breach ��������� of the, act.- All licenced  guides shall within fourteen days  of tho expiration of their licence,  furnish the provincial game warden with a statement showing the  number of persons whom they have  served, the number of days they  were engaged in hunting, and the  number of different species of big  game killed. v  The privilege heretofore accorded storekeepers of keeping .game  for sale for a period of five days  after the expiration of the -close  season for such game is withdrawn,  as . is also the privilege heretofore  accorded the private owners ol  game killed during the open season  of keeping such game for a period  of ten days after the expiration of  the open season.  It is provided that it shall be unlawful for any person to run deer  at any time with dogs or allow  dogs to run after dner. The old  act allowed hunting of ,deer with  dogs by permission of- the game  warden. Tbe hunting of birds  with dogs between April 15 and  August 1, both inclusive, is prohibited.  . - Various penalties of severe  character are provided for any and  all infractions ,of the, act. ��������� Any  fines imposed under- the act must  be paid forthwith, and, 'in default  of payment, the offender, Bhall be  liable to imprisonment, with or  without hard labor, for a period  not exceeding six months, unless  otherwise provided in the act.  The old act provided for'imprisonment not to exceed thirty days.  Every trader in furs is required  to make a return to the game  warden not later than August 1 in  each year, stating the number'and  variety of pelts bought by him in  the province during the twelve  months preceeding. ���������' Failure to  make such return involves a penalty up to $100, and in default to  imprisonment not exceeding three  months, and if the offender be a  corporation it shall be liable to a  fine not' exceeding -J200.  These are some of the more important of the provisions of the  amending bill.  When you want a headstone or  monument write to the Kootenay  Monumental Works, Nelson, B.C.  Gambling  We make a great mistake if we  reserve all our condemnation for  that aggravated forn\ of gambling  which is punishable by law, and  failB to take a* stand against what  is a training school for this. The  essence of gambling is the depriving of others of something  without giving a fair equivalent  in return���������the magnifying of the  elements of chance, the minimizing of the elements of work. Parents cannot be to careful to supervise the games their children  play if tfiere is any gain through  chance. Society ladies %who. are  introducing in Prince Rupert  "playing for points" are exerting  an influence for evil which will  soon be beyond their power to  check.

They were all people who  moved In what nre called the upper circles, and many of them were rich.  Among the guests were an engaged  couple���������Langdon Field and Louise  Dana. Field, -so'far as means were  concerned, wus 11 self made man.  Born in a wealthy family, he had  scarcely emerged Irom childhood when  a crash came In his family nffnirs.' Instead of going to colluue lie had at seventeen taken a posiilon in a mercantile house, determined to restore the  family fortune. 'At, twenty-two lie had  set up for himself'and at thirty was  considered rich: Then jt-ame trouble  in;hls business affairs, and it was a  question if all he had striven for would  not' be lost to him and he would have  to begin all over again.  While matters were well witli him  ho had become engaged to Mis** Dana  vWhen they were invited to i'idgeway's  house party he had told Mis fiancee  that he was needed at his business  aud must decline it. She told him that'  he was workiug too hard and should  break away for a brief recreation. After much persuasion she prevailed upon  him to accept tiie invitation, lie being  largely influenced by tlie fact that a  regret from him would either Involve  one from her or if she went without  -him her pleasure would be marred.  It seemed impossible for - Field to1  throw off his anxiety about his business. At any rate, he did not show'  that abandon to pleasure to be expected from every one of such a party  Louise, noticing this and that he seemed nervous and worried, did everything  In her power" to turn -his  mind  into  accosted ner. ana wnen sne was again  at, liberty Field had passed Into another apartment.        > ,  The dance passed off merrily*, being  kept up till 2 o'clock;in the morning.  The gayety' grew from start to finish,  and, as usual on such occasions, all  were loath - to break up. When afj  last those who were tired out began  to break away a conference took place  as to the rooming of the guests.  On the grounds was a pavilion, one'  room of which was equipped for a  bedroom, and it had been' arranged  that one of the young men, who had  come up especially for the dance,  should sleep .-there. He was rallied  by some girls on sleeping in such a  lonely place, to which he replied'thaft  It would not trouble him at all to  spend the night there; but he didn't}  believe there was a girl of the party  who would dare do so.  Now, Louise Dana was just the kind  of girl to take up with such a proposition. A lot of chaff followed, at the  end of which slip offered for a pound  of candy, to be given by the bachelors  9  THE BRUNSWICK HOTEL  CIGAR    AND   NEWS   STAND  CAF=?MI - B.     C.

She  kept him'up fairly well during the term  of the festivities, but as the end approached he seemed eager to get back  to the city and his business.  The night before the party broke .up  a dance was given by the hosts, and a  number of young people were invited  from the city "for that occasion especially. Naturally this took up all,the  available room, but by doubling up and  other expedients it was found possible  to accommodate the additional guests.  Louise Dana had brought with her  some valuable family jewels that she  had inherited. On the evening of the  ball, noticing that her fiance seemed  depressed, she dressed early, 'putting  on her jewels, and, seeking Field,  sought to dispel his gloom before the  festivities began. When he noticed her  Jewels his expression changed, and he  "���������said:  "You are not going to wear those  gems tonight, are you?"  , "Of course.   Why not?"  ,' "Do you think it appropriate to wear  Buch  valuable  Jewelry  except on  a  grand occasion?"  "If I wait for a grand occasion I may  wait some  time.    I have never yet  worn them, and I have long been anxious to do so for the first time."  ��������� "Don't"  j l'Why?",  "For my sake."  There was something in his expression that puzzled her. She was silent  for a few moments, then said:  "Very well. Since you desire It I'll  leave them off." ,  Louise went to her room, took off her  Jewels and put them uway. Coming  out into the hall, she met Mrs. Jlldge-  way.  "What have you done with your jewels'-" asked the latter.  "Taken Hiem off."  "Why so?"  "On second thought It seemed to me  thnt they are fitted only for state occasions."  "My dear, go and put them on again.  1 wish tbe other guests to see'and admire them."  The hostess hurried away, nnd Lou-  ls<*, not wishing to offend her, returned to her room and put the jewels on  Bgnln. Meeting Field, below, the moment he saw' them that name singular  pained, almost frightened, expression  came again In bis face. Sbe was about  to explain why she had failed to humor him lo tho matter when some one  sleep in the pavilion,   ller proposition  was accepted.   Going upstairs, she secured the articles of toilet she required.    At first she thought she would  leave the jewels lo her room, but on  second thought preferred to take them  with her and put them under her pillow.    Going   downstairs,   the   party  were .waiting for her.   Her lover took  her aside and begged her not to carry  out  her  Intention.,   Lie  appeared so  troubled about her doing so that she  would   have   refrained   had   she  not  gone, so far that her pride would have  suffered   at a   withdrawal.    She endeavored lo reassure him, saying that  the pavilion was as safe as the house.  She  was  escorted  to  her sleeping  place by a crowd ,of young people.  -Field would not be of the party.   She  was rallied on the spooks that would  visit-her during,,the  night and the  burglars.    But it was nil banter, for  the pavilion was not 100 yards from  the main building, and no one dreamed of any danger.    Finally they left  her alone, returning to the house with  shouts and laughter/  There was a- dresser opposite the  door. Before, this dresser Louise stood  and took off her jewels, laying them on  It till she should go to bed, then began  to disrobe. 'While doing so she saw  peering through the transom reflected  in the mirror something that chilled  the marrow in her *bones. It was a  face, a human face, yet the face of a  demon.  , It was there but a"moment Nevertheless Louise knew or believed that it  had not departed.- Gradually she recovered her equanimity sufficiently to  play such "a part as would save her.  Could she give her jewels as the price  of her life? It was the only expedient  left her. Deliberately she continued  'her disrobing.  Leaving her jewels on the dresser,  she got into bed. Her heart was wildly beating, and sleep, of course, was  impossible. Wishing to have the ordeal  over as soon as possible, she purposely  breathed hard as if in slumber. It was  not long after this that she heard a  faint click from the door���������she had purposely left it unlocked���������and some one  stealthily passing over the floor. She  kept her eyes closed, but could distinguish that there was a light in the  room.  The steps went to the dresser, and  Louise could hear the jewels being taken off it Then the light came toward her, and he who carried it,held  It closer and closer to her face. It was  all she could do to refrain from starting up with a wild shriek. But she  maintained herself, keeping her eyes  closed so thoroughly that she saw nothing, though she knew that the light  was held down almost against her  eyes, for she could feel its heat Every  moment she expected to feel a weapon  crashing down upon her. Yet she knew  her only hope was to convince the robber she slept so soundly that she was  unconscious of his presence.  Then when she felt that he was moving away and the danger had passed  how could she refrain from betraying  herself by some expression of relief?  Still controlling herself, she lay perfectly quiet until sbe heard a creak at  the door and knew the robber and ber  jewels had passed away from her.  And now with the reaction fame a  frightful bitterness. _It was not that  she had been robbed of her jewels.  This was nothing compared with another deprivation. The love she had  felt for Langdon Field was turned to  horror. In the face she had seen reflected from the transom she had recognized tbe man who was soon to have  been her husband.  What next? Should she stay where  she was till daylight or get up and  give an alarm? In the latter case, if  she met ber visitor, it would be sure  death. Doubtless be had fle^tV Sbe  waited as long as she could repress a  desire to go elsewhere, then, arising,  put on what clothes sbe needed and  went out. All was still, the late revelers being in bed. In one of the windows she saw a light Throwing some  gravel from the walk against tho pane, f  tho summons was answered by a young  man who was smoking with others and  talking over tbe dance. When tbe door  was opened Louise fell on the floor in  aheap.  Langdon Field, whose mind had been  for some time giving way under his  reverses, had at last- broken down.  Being unbalanced, be bad conceived  the idea,that if be possessed bis fiancee's jewels be could save himself  from financial ruin. He was captured  ln the city and sent to an asylum. In-  sano as he was, he was conscious of  what he had done and told his physician that he had held tho light dowD  close to Louise's eyes to make sure  that she was asleep. Had she shown  the slightest evidence of being awake  ho would have killed her.

Carson,  secretary    of     Phoenix     Mining,  Smelting    and   Developing   Co.,  which   owns   tho   property.    Mr.  Carson   returned  to town on Friday from a visit of a few days to  the group  which consists of three  claims.      Throughout the   winter  the company  have had from four  to six men employed in both developing and sacking ore.    There is  about one carload of line ore on the  dump, while the company has another two carloads at the railroad  siding   awaiting   shipment.     The  principal shaft is down  100 feet  following   the   lead   almost   from  grass roots, and the present scheme  of development consists of a tunnel which it is intended to tap the  vein some twenty feet lower than  the shaft has yet reached.    The  ore is a high-grade silver-lead product and the lead has a dimension  of eighteen   inches.    Mr.   Carson  paid there is very little snow in the  valleys and the logging camps are  breaking   up.    Tho  river   is   nn  usually  low  at present.    It is ex  pected that the Kettle Valley Rail  road  company   will take over the  road from the contractors inside of  two weeks,   news  having been received  to the effect that the railroad   commissioners   had   passed  favorably on   tho   undertaking.���������  Phoenix Pioneer.  The latest- authentic information  to hand is to the effect that Pete  Scott has bonded the Toronto and  Galena and the Bones Fraction to  T. "Walter Beam. It has also been  stated that the Rollo is included  in tho deal, and it is not at all improbable, but part of it has not  yet been verified and tho Gazette  does not voubh for the correctness.  The Toronto and Galena were  properties that' wero always well  thought of in the camp, for. in addition to their favorable location it  was known that good surface values wore obtainable, and they were  held to rank in with the Kingston  in that respect. Pete Scott was  known to be the principal owner,  but several double shuffles occurred at different times and R. R.  Hedley held an interest in them at  onetime.  It was also rnmored that Mr.  Beam had obtained an option on  the Copper Cliff from tho Pollock  Co. and the Nick-o-Time Fraction  from Fraser Campbell, but this  also lacks confirmation.���������Hedley  Gazette.  <>0<y<y<>0<>C>0<><><><><>00<><yO<>0<>0<>0<i  I   B.

MININC NEWS   I  o o  ooo<>o<><}<><><>oo<><>o<><>o<yo<>oo<>o<>  At one period in British history  when lustre was being shed on  Britain's military power and her  arms were invariably successful  abroad, with news of one victory after another won doughty skilful  foes pouring in,it was customary for  the minions of fashion in London  to inquire every morning for the  latest victory for fear they should  miss one. That is pretty nearly  the way it has got to be in Hedley  in the matter of activity in Camp  Hedley mining properties.  Amos Godfrey returned from the  Copper River coal fields Thursday  and, wheu interviewed, said that  he was well pleased with the showing made since his last trip.  There have been five seams of coal  discovered on the property, upon  which there have been nearly fifteen hundred feet of tunnel work  done. The largest of these seams  shows eight feet of good, clean  coal, and wheu Mr. Godfrey took  measurements to get an idea of the  tonnage, these figures showed thero  to be 12,4-10 tons to the acre, or  7,961,GOO tons to the section, and  allowing for tho dip which the  seam makes at the present depth,  these figures would be doubled,  giving the enormous tonnage of  15,923,200 tons to tho section, and  from careful prospecting, this  seam is known to underlie ten  sections. Above this largo deposit  is another good, workable seam  five feet in width, which adds  greatly to tho estimated tonnage.  Mr. Godfrey has had a great  deal of experience in coal mining  both iu British Columbia and the  old country, and he says he has  never seen-better coal for coking  purposes or which could be mined  more easily than these two seams.  ��������� Telkwa Tribune.  short job to get the macninery in  operation. They expect to have  a very busy and profitable season.  The prospecting done last year  was very satisfactory, and Mr.  Fraser took back some samples of  line and coarse gold. They are  sending iu fourteen men aud a  large quantity. of supplies which  will last until the pack trains cat-  get in this summer. Mr. Fraser  predicts that this will bo tbo biggest season the Omincca has had  since the big rush some forty years  ago. Practically every company  and syndicate holding ground will  operate this year, and a big bunch  of the precious yellow metal should  be brought out this fall.���������Omincca  Herald.  THE TULAMEEN  Manager Fraser,   of the  Royal  i  Standard Investments Co., Vancouver, arrived on "Wednesday  night's train with a number of  men, and they will leave at once  for the Omineca country, where  the company holds extensive placer  grounds which will be worked this  season. Last year Mr. Fraser took  in the hydraulic machinery and  got it installed and ready to operate, so that it will be only a very  Pare-��������� Wholesome���������Reliable-  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.  In  the Similkameen and Tulameen    particularly,    tho    mining  camps have begun the spring with  an unusually.optimistic vigor.    In  New Leadvillo the Golden Treasure   Mountain    Mining   company  have  driven  in   a   tunnel   for   a  depth of three hundred and thirty  feet.    Owing  to the difficulty   of  bad air  filling this shaft, the company has let a contract for an upraise shaft.    The amount of improvement   commenced   and   tho  value   of   the   buildings   now   in  course of construction speaks much  for    the  estimation   placed   upon  their  holdings by  the members of  the company who are all Spokane  business men'.    The Indiana company have been  very active also  about   their   holdings   and    have  made extensive improvements on  tho property bonded last summer.  A force of men have been engaged  on their-works all winter and they  have  over three hundred  feet of  tunneling completed.    Their  lead  ore has made an excellent showing.  Tho work has been interrupted at  times during  the  winter by snow-  slides but this danger will soon be  past  and  the work  will  then be  pushed with greater vigor.  Mr. J. C. Edwards, a well-  kuown miniug man of Spokane, is  in the Tulameen at tlie present and  has made arrangements to continue the working on the Treasure  mine. Mr. Edwards predicts an  unusual rush in the early spring so  soon as tho trails become passable.  He expects large numbers of miners will go in to examine property  not yet bonded. It is to be hoped  that the provincial government  will push the construction of a  wagon road from Tulameen to the  summit or New Leadville as the  camp is now called. Many strong  companies aro now interested in  this camp and they have been  forced to haul material over the  snow during the entire winter  at great expense and trouble.  Taboggans are the only vehicle  which can bo taken over the trail.  The government has disposed of  some 810,000 worth of lots at Tulameen, which townsite they own,  so that there is no financial reason  why the road should uot be completed. The wagon road along  Otter Lake might come in for improvement. It is so narrow that  two wheelbarrows can scarcely  pass. The great volume of work  already undertaken at Now Leadville is indicative of the vaster  amount which will follow so soon  as the road conditions make possible the transportation of materials.  Mr. Charles F. Law and associates of Vancouver have also pushed  developments ou their Slate Creek  gold and platinum mines. A force  of men has been engaged steadily  and great progress has been made  with the tunnels. Tho workers  havo been drifting for tho old  channel of Salt creek which is very  rich in gold and platinum. If hard  work deserves succsss then the  workers deserve to find tho old  channel.  Residents of tho Tulameen are  looking forward to tho coming of  the Great Northern railway to  bring.an era of prosperity to their  town. The long haul from Vancouver to Spokane and back and  the high freight rates have retard--  ed the section's growth to a large  extent so that it has been unable  to keep paco with other towns in  the Tulameen Valley moro favored  in location on better transportation  routes.  Samples from  various claims in  tho Otter. Valley have been assayed  in Vancouver and  have given extremely   gratifying   results.    The  Eaglo Creek grant owned by Todd  aud company, has yielded seventy-  three dollars to the ton and  forty-  one  dollars in other values, principally   copper.     The   lead   runs  from twenty-six inches to five feet  in   width.    Todd    has   hired   all  available pack trains from  Keremeos to Klondyke to pack the oro  to Tulameen  during the   coming  summer.      Kelly    Creek,    where  claims were staked last summer by  a number of Spokane business men  is very  busy,   gangs  have worked  all  winter with  splendid results.  Some of the assays have reached  eighty dollars in gold.    The Bear  Creek property, owned by Thynne,  Todd and company,   is bonded  to  Mr. E, Duncan of Vancouver, who  refused   an offer of $S5,000 from  English capitalists recently. There  are nine claims along, this granite  and the ledge is six feet wide.    It  carries high values in gold,   silver  and copper.   The Blue Bell, North  Star, Summit Number Three.and  the David "Western mining claims  owned by D. Ross, J. Thynne and  E. Tingley situated at New Leadville, will all be working in a few  weeks.  Leadville is a very high grade  i  ore   camp.    When - the   projected  govern ment road is completed vast  quantities of oro now waiting on  the dumps will be hauled out.  This road has been promised for  years but has. not yet been built.  The government owns the Tulameen townsite and has made thousands of dollars from the sale of  lots so that there should be no difficulty in tho construction of a road  to revive New Leadville which has  been stranded for a number of  years owing to a lack of transportation. The impossibility of taking machinery to New Leadville  is a terrible handicap tothe companies interested there.  Affairs in the Otter Valley are in  a very prosperous condition and  the winter has been fairly mild.  The snow fall has averaged about  two feet. The cattle have come  through the winter with no lack of  fodder, tho large hay crops of 1912  providing a splendid supply.  The altitude of the valley is  2/100 feet. Apples and other orchard fruits thrive and small garden vegetables grow particularly  well.���������Saturday Sunset.

The company is said to have immense possessions in tho country,  and to be developing resources on  a gigantic scale.  It is predicted by some studying  the development of the new world  that the Amazon valley, which  rivals the Mississippi in area and  richness, is destined to be the objective place of the next great  migration after Canada and Australia are settled.
